Completely agree. Yuu and Sera are my favorites as well. I just hope the love ''5 angle'' resolves itself, you know. I don't wanna see everyone looking at the sky while the credits roll and not knowing who stayed with who
Good news Fenrir, the story seems to be a huge hit, with almost 400 hits in just 2 weeks, and I haven't even uploaded half the chapters yet. This is probably going to be the one and only Miria epic, so I'm glad it's doing so well. How are you doing btw?
Speaking of it doing well, I've got zero reviews since it's debuted on the 3rd. I'd be grateful for getting our beleaguered "goddess" off the ground with a quick review. Chapter 2 will be up on Friday or Saturday, but it seems people are cautious about reviewing it yet. I'll add all my last edits to chapter 1 in the next few days.
BTW Fenrir, my Miria-centric fanfic will be hitting fanfiction.net soon. I hope it has your approval. I was going to pitch the story as the "the tale of Miria as it should have been, not what Yagi gave her". Any suggestions on how I summarize it?
There's an obvious answer to this Fenrir-it's because they can't always detect the arrows incoming. Ursula was turning around with macabre perfection and got surprised, while Josephine wasn't expecting an attack and had let down her guard. When you can't detect or don't know an attack is incoming, its very hard to be prepared to face it. Even Helen couldn't dodge the arrow that hit her in the shoulder, as seen in chapter 2's battle. To put it mildly, not everyone has Claire's ability to Quick Sword-deflect all projectiles away. This I'm sure you can understand.
As for the others, Richetta and Alessandra died via head blows (Richetta via a spiked mace that penetrated her steel helm and Alessandra via a battle-axe strike), only one of which is actually seen in the novel.
