Despite the fact we were going to be away this weekend and would therefore lose a reasonable chunk of the playing time for Children's Week, Mardia rocked up in Eye of the Storm on Friday night for a final last attempt to capture a flag.
And she got it. 4 achievements in one - the one for the flag capture, the one for the Children's Week Battlegrounds, the overall Children's Week one, and the meta-meta for completing all the seasonal metas. The sense of relief at finishing it was enormous, especially since as when she was halfway back to the Alliance tower with the flag (the first time she'd managed to get her hands on it at all), the tower fell to the Horde. However, she turned and started running towards another tower, one that was surrounded by Alliance, and it became ours just as she got there.
And Mardia now has that violet drake, and I have the knowledge that I never ever have to fight in a battleground again.
