Twitter reactions to the new page are so good
My cat was very concerned because I spent a solid minute going "sister!!!" in a slightly teary, amazed voice and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one.
Burnt wings. Also, note the wheel.
And what an end to the tournament arc.

Salami Dave goes off the chain
OH MY GOOOODDD!!!!!!
LITERAL AND FIGURATIVE TRANSCENDENCE
and wow she's pretty
i wonder if she's gonna get to keep this form or if its only temporary (i hope its permanent)
oh! there is a literal white chain across her forehead and eyes
and her little "hhh" is because she ended the ki-rata technique
an angel of ki-rata
oh! she literally beat him at his own game! he was kicking her ass with her own techniques so she FLIPPED IT TURNWAYS and used his "i am the sole survivor of ki-rata" technique against him
...now the only question is if she also managed to make him bleed
and if she did was it that and his key and her will that made her change into this form?
can you wield a blade of want in someone else's hand?
like is part of her form literally from his genes now?
he made a point to never have daughters after his first one(s) died, what kind of mindfuck would it be to have one now
SO MANY QUESTIONS
there is some gold in the page chat but one thing is getting people upset over the implication of white chain now being dave's daughter (and that somehow implying she's now "nerfed" or he has power over her) and to that i say:
even if she doesn't have any of his genetics she was still made "from" him (or rather his actions/attack) and still counts as a something like a daughter, especially as this moment passes into myth within the setting
i can personally assure you there are a LOT of narratives hidden in the world of daughters going "fuck you dad, i may be OF you but im NOT you and im not going to BECOME you or continue your BULLSHIT" so this being yet another one would not surprise me in the slightest (raven's arc in the older teen titans cartoon is another good one). these stories just normally don't see the limelight because Patriarchy and Sexism
even if you discount his contributions to this phenomenon she's still very much a daughter of the kind of ridged system he represents and so could be seen as his "offspring" that way. which is VERY MUCH IN LINE with her story arc and abbadon wasn't even subtle about it in this fight
she knows ki-rata (or something as like it as to make little difference) now. apprentices counted as adopted children in a not insignificant part of the world. "learning" it here from this fight could be seen as a kind of apprenticeship.
this whole fight is more about the mind and will than any physical aspect so giving dave a "daughter" that does what millennia of sons couldn't do (even if she hasn't actually drawn any of his blood) is a MASSIVE mindfuck on top of him swearing off daughters only to now sort-of have one
how else do you cut a Diamond than with another Diamond
also we have the earlier narrative of Prim accepting, enduring and then shedding her father's legacy/obligation, so I feel like 'fuck u dad, even though you are technically my real dad' is absolutely what we're dealing with here
and solomon will have an even harder time ignoring/distancing himself from that bc now she's got ki-rata AND your dna, buddy

Spoiler: symbolism train still going
HA! bruised but not bloodied
wounded his ego but not his flesh (well, relatively speaking)
what was that about a new king changing the cycle to something other than violence
talk about winning the fight without actually winning the fight
... still, white chain's victory is greater :D
It turns out that Gog Agog doesn't even need to actually feed everyone a worm.
oh fucking hell
vigilant gaze called white chain "something transcendent"
obviously in references to her being trans
but we've seen angels called igneous and other ~hot thing cooling down and changing its shape/texture/type~ kind of thing
ITS ALL FORSHADOWING!!!
she is literally transcendent into a new "state" that other angels just haven't seen before because they keep sabotaging those that try to get there
ANGELS WERE ALWAYS MEANT TO CHANGE
slowly, but inexorably
it just took them this fucking long for one of them to make it this far on this kind of path
much like molten rock compaired to devil's fluid mercurial nature
...shit which is why cio is a foil to white chain. she's trying to stay the same. to stay cio and not another Yabalchoath. which goes against how devils are supposed to work.
just like how allison is shaping up to be unlike anything the demiurges were expecting. a girl instead of a guy. aiming for talk and alliance and sneaking and trusting her friends instead of smashing and grabbing and conquering like the warriors of old.
it really is all about smashing the wheel to be reforged into something (hopefully) better
white chain smiles make me :D on the inside
