Whether it’s a gift from the heavens, or simply destiny, I don’t know. What I can tell you is that we’re realizing Shu pulled a move from The Art of War, sleeping for a week, demanding Simone bark like a dog, allowing Antonio to pep up Hai Yo, appealing to Gremio’s weakness, witnessing the soul still burning inside of Tir, getting a little kid abducted, hatching out of a worm, stepping back from the republican throne, gentling ribbing our war buddies, shooting our shot with Cleo, acknowledging the pain of home, replaying Suikoden 2 to correct a typo, and feeling satisfied with our adventure into the past. Walk your road unafraid.
