Fight's over! Who had their money on Ivy?

Yeah, tried to get very heavy on the shot where he's smacked. The script actually called for it to look really kinda almost-tragic, like a "our hero has been shot" kinda moment. Tried to shoot for it, though if anything it came up a bit short.

Well, that's the last fight of the day for Ivy then, and she for the third year in a row ends the day undefeated, and for the third year in a row beats Alex. Even if she doesn't know that last part. So, chapter ends on Friday.

Yeah, really - really wanted the ending to the fight to be ready to come any time, so didn't warn of the end of the chapter coming any further in advance like I usually do. Very little follow-up to this for now then, but it's in part because of the way the next chapter is done - we'll be coming back to the matter a bit then and getting some proper closure to this chapter there at a point. Still, we do have one thing left to address in this one before we move on.

After this chapter does end, we'll have a brief filler storyline wrapping up some loose ends from this chapter with Hazel and Mercy, then we'll go on a break for a couple of weeks before coming back with chapter fifteen, Storms Are Brewing. There'll still be stuff posted in the meantime on that, we could just use a little bit of a break to recharge and to build more of a buffer. Still, Hazel and Mercy stuff is coming first, as is of course the last page of this chapter.

If you didn't catch it, a parallel between the start of the chapter and the end of the fight it's building to there, since in the first page one of the flashbacks showed Ivy sitting on her knees on Alex's back. Figure it's intentional on her part, given how much Alex talked himself up as his own apprentice idea is a it's deliberate callback on her part as a, "Just like your teacher," sort of thing.
