Very beautiful Sparkleaf. Seeing the story come full circle, seeing the characters at what could be their highest and lowest moments, seeing how the tools of the war have changed them and how they look to the future, it's all so good.

Two parts of this chapter I absolutely loved: The eggs and the first moment between Thalia and Sparktail (though I'm sure everyone loved that moment too. X3)

I know this may sound hallow after how many times I've said it, but know that each time it rings true.

Amazing job as always Sparks, amazing job.

*u* Thank you again. This chapter, and the next one (the very last one) are pretty much the payoff of three years of rewrites and edits and frustrating outlines.

The hardest problem with this chapter was that I didn't want it to be just a parade of praise. I wanted everyone to sort of challenge Sparktail to take up responsibility, so to speak.

The egg was probably one of the oldest scenes in my head; originally Sparktail would've woken up next to the egg, but I think it works better with Rush. I'm sure you know who's in the egg, right? >w>

Ah yes, that's why I had Thalia ranting at Sparktail in the previous chapter :D i didn't want them to just "all is forgiven i already forgot it happened" because I want them to have a stable, healthy relationship. If it went too steamy, you can blame frosti for that fanart

Well worth the wait I assure you Sparks.

You did so very well, and you made sure that not every ending was outright "happy". There was a bit of bittersweetness, mixed in with some worry for the future.

I really liked it. The sorrow, the hope, and the story of the eggs themselves. Also: Is it a baby? :D

You did VERY good! Sooooo good! It seemed like something real, something that could happen between a couple that had been fighting. It was just so perfect. ♥ So should I be gushing to her about how good the scene was?

I like to think that, even if every character didn't win the way they thought they would, they'll all find happiness.
Except Rush, because Crowning Gates. //cough
It showed up in Chapter 40. Apart from that, you'll probably figure out eventually.
no but tell her she's missing out 8D

Okay maybe the lovey-dovey bits with sparktail and thalia were a little cheesy, but hey the restof the chapter more than made up for it.

Best scene: probably the one with the funerals, all the description (ex: dragon fangs on graves) was so detailed.

Ooh okay

was it just the second love scene that was cheesy or was the first one cheesy too ;;

What about the last scene, actually?
