I really can't thank you enough for doing this. T_T

I did not expect the moment that attacked me emotionally to be a full-on fist fight but here we are. I was pretty relieved that the fight focused more on Yuki and Kyo's relationship than anything else at that moment. Obviously the situation with Tohru was a major contributing factor but if it had been the focus of the scene it would have come a little too close to the shovel talk trope - which I am *not* a fan of.

And well, then Kyo made a housecall and uh I was very worried. It was just a lot. But in a narratively satisfying way.

Having done a number of rewatches and first watches of various genre shows in the vein of X-Files over the past year (including re-attempting to watch the X-Files itself lol) I know exactly what you mean. xD

I think the pandemic really did something to our attention spans or something, didn't it?

Oh, for sure. Not having a commute also did a real number on getting any reading done. My industry is still pretty much shut down (although things will start picking up over the next few months) so the reading I would get done during down time or on the train kind of went out the window. Without any structure, there have only been a few books where I felt compelled to keep reading as opposed to having to kind of make myself get around to it. It's kind of like an extension of the Netflix problem where you can't make a decision because there's just so many options. :|

Mostly it's the first Circle of Magic quartet and the Protector of the Small books - since those were the ones I followed along pretty closely when they came out. There's a couple other random parts of books I enjoy for one reason or another but I was gonna try downloading those myself first with the link shared earlier in the thread.

If that's something you were willing to do, I would definitely be interested?

I know it's by no means on the long end of Brandon Sanderson books, but before I switched to borrowing the ebook, the copy my library lent me (wooo no-contact holds) *lied* to me. I was surprised at how small it was but it definitely used the thinner paper you sometimes get in paperbacks so it looked like it was 300-400 pages when it was really twice as long.

Oooo yeah there's definitely a lot to talk about there. Although, in all honesty, with how scattered by reading time has been most of my thoughts is me giggling at some of the plot's resemblance to a certain video game. xD

When I'm actually able to get momentum it's fine, but I was doing most of my reading during my commutes (yay public transit) and I've found that if I'm not super into a book it's very difficult to read when I'm not on a train. Which is, interesting, I guess.
