We might’ve taken this part a little too fast: the thrust of the first couple of panels is that Syr’Nj was more or less holding it together until Kon’Kr sailed in and started cheerfully discussing kill counts and then, well, TRIGGERED.

My heart goes out to everyone involved here (wait to see tomorrow’s before you judge Faer too harshly), but these days I identify most strongly with Fr’Nj. I’ve spent a lot of time standing nearby while someone else goes through an emotional crisis, and I’m never quite sure whether it’s the sort where they’ll recover from on their own if they can just talk it out to someone who’ll quietly listen, or if this is actually a crossroads for them and my failure to contradict them means that the silence of hopelessness will win by default.

I mean, it’s usually the first one, but still.
