Heheh... Yeah, Grant loses but the fact that he sticks it out, gives Ivy some surprises, and doesn't back down, is enough to earn Ivy's begrudging... Erm.... Okay, not "respect" but.... Something. ^^

Either way, yeah, Grant was never going to come out on top of this fight, and I think the saddest part of that sentence is Grant himself was maybe the only one who didn't know it. Hell, even Alex likely bet against him. That said, I dunno why Ivy's even bothering to disable his sonic scream; he hasn't used it once this whole fight, he clearly isn't comfortable hitting Ivy with it. Either because he thinks it's too broken or he's afraid of genuinely hurting her. Heh... or maybe he's just self-conscious of that comment Alex made earlier about not wanting to replace the glass.

Either way, still love this fight and very pleased with the resolution. ^^

The point with the scream's supposed to be more Ivy kind of demonstrating that he's in a helpless situation, really emphasizing how even if he were willing to use it at this point he wouldn't be able to. Probably could've communicated that better I guess.

Either way, yeah, this was kind of designed much more as Ivy essentially quizzing Grant than any sort of direct fight, thus the relatively breezy pace and her continually giving him openings. General concept was much more about her trying to feel out how qualified he is to do this and testing his resolve than really trying to wion since really, Ivy was probably going to do that regardless.

Couple more pages left in the chapter then we'll be going on a break for a little bit. Feels like a decent time to comment, though think I've alluded to it before, that a few other scuffles were considered for this chapter but didn't end up being seen through - mainly considered Alex vs. Jack and Alex vs. Grant. Probably get to both of those at some point but yeah, won't be happening right now. Also briefly batted around Ivy vs. McShay and Alex vs. Daryl.

If it wasn't clear Grant will also be hanging around for the next chapter. But we'll get to that when we cross that bridge - for now, hopefully everyone enjoys this one.

Ivy does everything in her own unique way, very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
