I know this is a continuing series, but this happens to be the first one of the series I have seen.
Without context, without a set narrative, you still got me to weep.
I lost a few people in my life, and I grew up on a farm where we ate animals we raised by hand.
I am familiar with death in ways I wish I was not, but this reminded me of how sudden and funny it can be.
Of how it feels to have this part of your life taken, and how what might have been a simple skirmish, a mistake, can change everything.
I imagine as this seem to be deep within the series that you have been building to this as a creator, and to kill a character must hurt in it's own way, but a way you had been expecting.
Maybe that's why this feels more like my own experience of watching someone you have know for years, and always knew would die someday, leave very quickly.
You made something beautiful here, thank you.
