With a longsword, you should have the main hand just below the guard and the other holding the pommel at the end of the hilt, for improved leverage. (Incidentally, if you do it right, you don’t need gauntlets to half-sword. The blade only cuts you if it slips, which means you have the wrong type of grip.)

@germanvisitor: Yes, it *is* low on the list, because most people don’t know that you *should* use two hands to wield a longsword.

As to questions of them being controlled, check the previous comic. Teresa said “on OUR mark”, not “on YOUR mark.”

It seems that Either Peonie’s wielding it or Teresa is… it’s certainly being wielded one way or the other.
