I mean, I expected more violence in the reason for G's abrupt travel, but a cuddle emergency is real. I also expected the visitor to be Patchouli until you mentioned her age. But both of those will come in good time, I assume.
As for what we got: The pre-marriage certificate scene was adorable. I'm proud of Eben for how far he's come. When you mentioned a million, I was briefly wondering if that was dollars.
Oh, so he did get a synchromesh gearbox. Are we supposed to know Ms. Völlmer from anywhere?
I'm glad we got at least a little closure on the 10th of Floreal.
Remilia can still fly even on the new moon. That's useful.
And yeah, I've tended to my girlfriend when she was down and needed cuddles. I wish I could fly over to visit her the way Benjamin did.
All in all, a good story, one which nicely wraps things up for the hopefully brief hiatus. Good luck with your academics!
