2. Chapter 41 is refusing to flow. I know what I want to happen, but it keeps being draggy, having not quite the right tone. I've let it sit on the shelf for a bit hoping to reboot the muse.
3. Totally random squee: At the end of FFX-2, if you bump into Elma, she's standing with an armored chocobo and says something like, "Can you believe it? They've asked me to reform the Djose Chocobo Knights!" So the Djose Knights return, and Elma succeeds Lucil as their captain. A minor detail, but it pleases me to see that part of my fanon converging with canon.
