I almost made a single-page spread of Alex and Stan at the top.. or rather, I DID, but when I scanned I was torn in resizing. Oh well. Enjoy - definitely the best I could get for the movement portrayed. ^^
SO. FACT. In case you wondered..
Alex is, I repeat, is not built for carrying people. He is light, especially for his decent height, and he becomes lighter when he's in his half-state. Birds have hollow bones, and while his aren't entirely hollow here, they are lighter. Carrying anyone approaching his own weight or heavier (which I assumed Aeron and Neth from previous rounds were not due to race/build) is extremely difficult on him in flight if not impossible depending on how heavy the other is.
Those kinds of stunts probably are possibly from shapeshifters whose dominant forms are birds of prey such as eagles, raptors, and owls. Alex meanwhile as a raven, can carry someone of Stan's size (I assumed shorter, though not by much) by determination for a short distance, but boy is he going to be exhausted and sore later :D

MUAHAHAHAH. And for lack of a proper background, let's remember.
Stan is high above the ground. Stan does not have wings. ;[

GAW.....the emotions you've portrayed in these panels are fabulous! The strain of taking off with Stan in tow....the exhaustion of staying aloft with his passenger....the dramatic setup of the fall - way to rock! :D

You remembered Stan's lack of shoes! Huzzah! XD

Yeah, actually Stan's not the lightest guy. He's not built or anything, but he's not a scrawny guy. It would be a lot to have to carry him, I feel for poor Alex there. And I am in utter awe of the last panel here. It's heart-wrenching. The style with that subtle shading works so well. Awesome job. :D

I WAS SO HAPPY. Because... I can't draw shoes anyway.

I didn't assume he was too heavy at all, but Alex is not incredibly strong, for a guy and considering his height. Same goes for his wings, which while in good shape, aren't meant to carry anyone comfortably who is heavier than his brother. WORK OUT MORE, ALEX, YOU SCRAWNY TWIT!

The wings getting hurt are never good. *torments Alex*

This is probably horrible of me to even say this but;

Alex (to Stan): Argh! You've got to start losing weight! :dead:

XDDDDDD; Not too horrible.
Alex IS skinny/weak for his height, all considered, ehehe.
