Would Hannelore have taken the effort to personally tell Fritzchen how she felt if Gryphon wasn't there as a sounding board?
I'd like to think she would, but I know how much it means to have somebody ask you, "What are you going to do about it?" Sometimes that's more of a kick in the ass than any rant could ever be.
They're handling the challenge just fine; that's what the 501st does. Whether or not Hannelore would have gone to do it...that's something else.
Does a pebble know what its ripples do?
