This chapter is so long that it wouldn’t even fit into a single LJ entry (there’s a link to part two at the bottom of part one). That hasn’t happened for a very long time (not since day eleven of Ein’s route, in fact!); the final wordcount for this day clocked in at nearly 15k.
We’re back to Nessiah’s perspective for this chapter.
Also, as a heads-up to ace readers and people at work, there’s (consensual!!) sexual content towards the very end of the day. Please exercise precaution.
