So, if you've spoken to me online in the last week, you may've heard me babbling something about having to rearrange panels and visuals just to have the space to glue in the speech? Weeell, this is the page I was babbling about. Bet you're toats glad you got to find that one out!
What we're finding out now however, is that Koal is the victor of the third battle of FNF, and thus onto the next round of the title tournament! But will his opponent in the next round by Meteor, Michi... or the winner of our next combat?
Back to this particular fight, WOW it went longer than I originally thought. I actually expected it to go 8 pages like the first combat. Instead - if you include this as a sort of 'cap-off' page - it went a full 12.
Going into writing the battle, I essentially had plans for most of the end - from Koal taking to the sky up until his victory. Still, I knew I had to give Cameron her chance to shine - in particular, I wanted her to... not quite dominate, but at least hold the upper hand for a good portion of the fight, to force Koal to resort to using the aerial combat. Then as it turned out, writing combat maneuvers for Cameron was goddamn fun. Never have fun kids. It leads to long combats only lengthened by multiple-month breaks in between pages.
...
And now onto the poll!

Koal; 14 votes (67%)
Cameron; 7 votes (33%)

Aaand it looks like the popular vote was in the winner's corner for this one! Or so it would seem. I'd be very curious to see how the vote would go if we were to have it again now.
You see, the battle started with a ton of votes in Koal's favour, aaand Cameron with literally nothing. Not 100% sure why, maybe because Koal is definitely the more well-known competitor, maybe because Koal had an extra segment before the fight for people to relate to his character's plight more, who knows?
Either way, as the fight went on, it seemed the comments weren't quite matching up to the votes. Cameron gained a fair amount of vocal support from readers, who really got into the way she fought, and slowly votes for her began trickling in. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite enough to meet up to the initial voting spree that shot Koal up to be the poll victor for this battle!

She fought honorable through it all and despite so many hard hits to her face, she kept going.

She may have lost the fight, but she won Koal's respect.
