Maybe it’s me, but…it seems like the shorter the actual physical chapters become, the longer it takes me to go through. It’s weird. Or, it could be with the more that’s changed, the more I have to wrestle with to make this work without everyone flocking to Beau’s yard for his co-dependent milkshake. Don’t get me wrong, I can get into a yaoi manga as easily as the next manga nerd, but that’s not what I’m trying to do here.
This is also the chapter in which my caveat about keeping sh*t at least 90 percent pure text matters, because when you are trying to avoid the “everyone is gay for the Hero” thing, it’s necessary to play a bit fast and loose–move dialogue, alter reactions, etc. So, please forgive me if I come across as a bit smug. After 7 hours of wrestling with this beastie, I am feeling extremely happy to be alive.
All that said, I have for you Chapter 4: The Meebling
Stay Tuned for Chapter Five, as I will probably be doing my first Sparkle Crown Chronicle entry during that update.
