For the charm Calm and Ready Focus (Exalted, p.349), that grants the Solar 1 initiative when she "successfully parries an attack while using the defend other action", does using the charm War Lion Stance suffice for this, or does she have to actually spend her turn taking the defend other action?
Also, happy holidays!
Yes, War Lion Stance counts as a defend other.
