    Summary

    In mechanical watches and clocks, an escapement is a device which converts continuous rotational motion into an oscillating or back and forth motion, creating the familiar ticking noise. An escapement drives the timekeeping element, usually a pendulum or balance wheel, in a clock or watch; without it, the system would unwind uncontrollably.

    Summary

    He can still remember that man standing atop the steps with the night wind stirring his hair. Strange, and distant and... different from Guts. From Casca, too. That feeling has been building for months, he thinks - an ongoing development as Griffith drifts toward aristocracy, and the rest of them remain rooted to the ground. It's been building, yes, but he didn't notice it until now. Maybe it's one of those things that only becomes obvious in retrospect. Really... fuck those things.

    Summary

    Guts would spend the rest of his unthinkably miserable life trying to forget the tenderness of that kiss.
