Reactions written down as I was reading...forgive the excessive use of exclamation points. I think I have a problem.
"Don't do this," said Quinn.
"I have to."
"You don't. You can fight this, it's an unjust command, you don't have to obey."
Omg, Quinn and Colrand...I just. My stomach in knots. Quinn saying something is an "unjust command." Only took you, what, seventeen years and a mind-controlled son to figure that out?!?!
"So. You win." He pointed a finger toward Colrand and, beyond that, the Emperor's room. "Get it…right this time."
And then Wynston...omg Wynston you'd better not die.
"Agent," he said bitterly, "I don't care how you die."
Then he walked away.
QUINNNNN!!! YOU LEFT WYNSTON TO DIE?!?!?!?!?! OMG DIAFF YOU MONSTER!!!
But the man who rounded the corner at a sprint was Quinn, followed by a desperately fatigued-looking Doc.
....okay, hold up on the die in a fire order....for a moment...
"Aw, I've fixed up worse. I'll tell you all about it when we're all comfortable, intact, and very far away from here."
Doc, just for being un-BELIEVABLY awesome, I will someday make a jk that will want to stay with you rather than Scourge. Somehow. You deserve it, man.
"Forgiven. Anything else is your call."
Wynston, you amazing amazing man. Ugh I love him.
..omg...they're all alive. <3 Bright!!! They're all alive!!! Yayyyy!!!!!
