Now she notices some of the crew dying. Argh. Kid's fightin' sense is a bit too strong. I dreaded this page. Ever since it was first written back in Decemember 2009, I've dreaded it. Poor Newbury... Hell, poor crew! Originally Dawson was going to be one of the unfortunate ones killed too, but he lucked out in the last chapter.
Annnnd this chapter and the next are why I established the higher rating a year back. Kind of an abrupt change from the normal tone of the story, but growing up tends to do that when you hit your teens. Sure, the previous stuff wasn't that bad. But it gets worse from here on out.
