    If you know me you know this'll be a bit lengthy.

    I've been giving the recent developments some thought. Holy War aside it looks pretty grim for Derrierie and Monspiet right now with Estarossa coming for them (swiggity swooty).

    The only legit chance for them to survive this encounter with Estarossa would be if they are saved from an outside force. No way they can take him on as he is now and even without the decrees it would be questionable since he is the second strongest if not strongest Commandment still left (Meliodas aside and I doubt even the masters can really match him).

    Well, if anyone it's gotta be Elizabeth, right? It would further her development as an independend character who gets shit done. Besides, she has done it before. She is also against killing or fighting meaninglessly. The main battle is relatively close by and Ellie is kind of on a different team than the main force but the troops are just rolling out. There's still time for detours and such.

    I'm not saying she'll take on Estarossa, lol nope. But she'll bargain for their lives. She knows something is up with him having asked for her name in Camelot. And I think Estarossa would want her more than he would want killing two traitors for the heck of it (it's not even necessary dude, they wanna hand their stuff over anyway!).

    That would also be the perfect opportunity to forward the Estarossa and Elizabeth sub-plot. If he takes her as a trophy, he has leverage against his brother. We would have them interact with each other, possibly finally learning what the deal with them is. It could all shape up into a fight between Mel and Estarossa all about Elizabeth and with Zeldris sorta being stuck between camps.

    (Hey, remember when I made the Game of Thrones backstabbing and betrayal, scheming mastermind & underhanded tactics shitpost a while ago? Yeah, I wasn't kidding. This is what we're gonna get.)


    C'mon Nakaba, do it! This would be far more interesting than just Esty rolling out and killing those two and then fucking off with their commandments.

    Why would Stigma leave her to do whatever she wants by herself knowing she could die at anytime?

    I'd rather they fight with Derriere and Monspiet in the middle with Ellie winning quite honestly. "Taking ellie as a trophy"? I dont care about this esta ellie link, especially if it just leaves ellie with less opportunity to show herself.

    i dont see how any of your later speculation goes with your previous independent ellie angle

    It could be Estarossa lend a hand to Elizabeth if that will use with how he knows her ! But what if she tried to help the couples and he intends killing her and the hidden Mael stopping him . Yeaaaah there we'll get MaelEstarossa story

    Yeah, that. I mean, she is still perfectly killable as long as she can't fully control her power but if it happens to surface she probably even shits on all the Archangels. So I don't really see the need for that.

    I've written all of the above under the circumstance that Estarossa stays as he is but what would you guys think of the possibility of Mael awakening inside him and Estarossa becoming Mael?

    Imo it would lend a new dimension to the whole conflict with Mael/Estarossa leading the goddess clan and Meliodas as the new demon king leading his clan into war.

    it would be interesting but wouldent that just dismiss estarossa's own character...i mean atleast it makes sense with Elizabeth liones since she is literally the person she reincarnated into, but mael is someone else and estarossa is himself
