A wonderfully satisfying ending. It's great to see Ambri fully recovered and being welcomed so cordially by new squadmates who are not only the finest of the fine but so friendly. "Frosty" is the perfect callsign for a pilot who has braved wintry ordeals on multiple planets. There's some bittersweetness in the way Ambri "woulda, coulda, shouldas" right up to the very end of the story, still laying a certain amount of blame on herself for what happened to Dzin and for the trials she went through on her mission. I love that her new squadmates, and especially Corven, all join together to encourage her and remind her that it's just a matter of learning from the situation and carrying on. (Indeed, as Corven points out, she does have areas in which she can improve, e.g., using a blaster—and I can imagine the other Signets might have found that footage of her at least a little amusing! ) In a way, though, Ambri's tendency toward self blame highlights some strengths of hers too: it is born of the fact that she has high standards for herself, that she doesn't just rest on her laurels and let her success go to her head. In the end, of course, it's all a matter of finding balance, of course—and the Signets (Cygnets?) look like a good place for our heroine to work on finding that balance. (And I am guessing this won't be the last story featuring her and them... riiiiight? ) Bravissima and congratulations on bringing this wonderful tale to such a satisfying conclusion, and as always keep up the fine work!
