Pita I loved this, as far as it's done!!! It's a shame you ran out of time and energy, but you've had a good run throughout this tournament. Love the concept of a little pet version of Avie, with Hana getting jealous despite her being a tiny fluffy animal XD. I love the last panel with its implications that only Ancelin can control this unhinged rot beast XD

Thanks for the great match, and I hope you get some well-deserved rest!!!

Pita: I'm sorry to hear the week was rough on you, and sorry you weren't able to finish this up. Still, what you put out was pretty good all things considered--I love your lines and the shapes you use, they all look so soft. And even though it's silent and not finished, it still got the point across. I love that Hana's jealousy extends to pets as well XD

Jade: As has been mentioned already, silent comics are difficult to pull off but I think you did it really well! You convey the point really well and clearly, and, interestingly enough, you pulled off a story that merits multiple re-reads--because each time I read this, I felt like I got another, deeper level of understanding to it. You mentioned in the discord that this was a metaphor, and when you said that I couldn't for the life of me figure out what the metaphor was. But then I read it again, and it clicked--it's a metaphor for trans dysphoria and that excellent moment when you first see yourself in gender-affirming clothes
or, at least, that's how I interpreted it. I could be wrong, but I don't necessarily think that's a failing on your part--having there be multiple possible ways to interpret a piece of media means that you did good at making it deep and relatable. Some of the best poems don't have one single way to interpret them.
aNYWAYS art-wise, I really loved the lil gags you put in with Avie lasering a hole through the mountain and then that cheeky little 'heh'. and the repeated pose of Ancelin with her little arms up in the air is ADORABLE and made me smile :D

Pita: I'm sorry burn out got you, we can see you doing some really amazing stuff from what you posted here, perhaps you should rest up and recharge your batteries.  
 Jade: I am a sucker for silent comic stories (this a trope I keep planning to do myself one of these days), but you have shown how great you are at it, silent comics are very tricky to pull off the right emotional beats but as one can see in how you rendered page two you nailed, good stuff it's always a treat getting comics from you.

Hana's jealousy is very adorable! How dare anyone give anyone else more attention than her.

I appreciate that no words were needed for either of these. The expressions conveyed it all!

Pita: your trope where you turn an otherwise sapient non-humanoid character into a housepet has returned. I wish I knew were you were going with this. honestly, you could have just made it about Ancelin wanting a new pet and getting one and ended it with the friend getting a little jealous and it would still fly by how cute Avie is here.

Jade: that's a sweet story. not a lot of conflict or tension, but just a desire to reconnect with an old friend. very sweet.
