As a promo, this was fine, standard Cyrus dialogue fare. But in light of what happened between Cyrus and Shannon I suppose I just wasn’t expecting this line of logic vs Bell. It was one hand a well-thought-out line of thought, but on the other somewhat ill-fitting in terms of Cyrus’ character. In terms of formatting and such there was no problem with it, but in my confusion there are also seeds of a gimmick/tone change which haven’t been fully fleshed out but make me excited to keep reading on.
    "Tone change" is the right word for it, although it's more complex than that. From Cyrus's perspective, he's been proven right in everything he's said about FWA up to this point. Whether through incompetence, short-sightedness, or a more sinister malice, FWA has decided to back Shannon as the hero in this story, but she proved to be far more two-faced than Cyrus ever was. In other words, FWA made him out to be the great villain whilst hitching their wagon onto Shannon, who's shown herself to be far more devious and far more the villain.

    Sure, Cyrus is pissed that he lost and didn't see it coming, but now he feels vindicated. To him, he doesn't need to fight this war of ideology with FWA anymore because he's won. And it's that vindication that kinda bleeds into his attitude with Bell.

    Bell's been going through some rough times lately. She's not the same person she was a year ago. And in Cyrus's eyes, she's less than what she was. Cyrus is a selfish Objectivist, but he does have some sympathy. He wants a good fight and glory, but when he looks at Bell he doesn't see that scintillating first title defense. He sees someone who's been battered and broken under the wheel driven by FWA. Bell is indicative of everything FWA's management will lead to according to Cyrus. And that upsets him, because there's no glory in this.

    Obviously, Cyrus will be happy being proven wrong, but considering he's faced Bell twice now, he doesn't see that. In character, Cyrus just sees this as an execution FWA is hoping will fix Bell enough to run that Shannon-Bell match they've been salivating for, despite the fact that in his mind FWA broke Bell to begin with.

    Thanks for that tip Kai- I was trying to think of a way to have someone capturing him on camera - struggled a lot with it actually. It's really the only part of it I was not happy with.

    Miss De La Muerta I always figured was "The type", to talk in dark black , lol , but I know that some kind of blue or red, or actually purple, would be much better in adding to it all, and there's definitely gonna be longer stuff coming then, thanks for the advice as always, cat daddy.
