Dear lord. Oh dear lord. This sequence. This entire fluffing SEQUENCE.
This page, and the page before that. I went through no less than three drafts for both of them. There was a lot of stupid shipments involved. Dear lord. It took me so long to figure out how to do this.
The basic gist of it was the same. Fight goes into the sky; Két helps Blair use his blast to hit Erza, somehow that manages to get her to the ground. Buuut of course it couldn't be that easy.
First draft: Blair sends up two rope-like energy beams instead of one normal beam. Két grabs them in midair because they're sprites and she can do that I guess (kind of like how she grabs the armor in this update); and drags them over to where Erza is so they can wrap around her and Blair can pull her to the ground that way. It was so silly. I was just - no. No why no please.
Second draft: Blair sends up big beam like in this page. Except instead of helping him aim it, Két breaks the beam sprite so that it creaks onto its side like it's a door on hinges and hits Erza that way. I don't know how that was supposed to work. Blair then makes the energy take the form of a hand and grabs Erza, doing that "grab you and bring you downwards" thing that people with big arms can do. I just - what was I even thinking.
Third draft: A combination of the last draft and what you see here. The last page was the "Két tilts the beam sprite so it hits Erza" thing, while this page remained as it was now. I was really determined to have Két grab that sprite effect.
Finally, finally, I settled on this. Much cleaner than the other versions, and less full of "Két what the actual fluff is this brick shipment" like the third panel is. Két that is nonsense and you know it. Blair why did you even bother with the hand. I don't- what and why and WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
