This is just a flying review, and I apologise for that - But much like yourself, I haven't exactly been on top of my game recently. Not that I'm not absolutely ecstatic that you're back in the swing of things (or.. Um... Just threw up a chapter! ) but, y'know, life constantly seems intent on stabbing you in the back the moment you take your eyes off it for a second or two. So without going into great detail - I love it! Ok, maybe that's a bit too minimalistic! The obligatory Felix Ramble/probe into his psyhce was wonderfully flippant and near-offensive as always. I can't blame him for being irrate though, if my psyche was that red raw from all the probing - I doubt I'd have much time for the slobbering masses known as fiction readers either! As for the chapter it's self - It's really very wonderfully domestic in a way, which is a nice step back from the epic build up to the epic finale, and good at portraying Felix as a human being. Which, of course, you've been doing throughout, but who hasn't gone to a bar and recieved... Unwelcome attention? Well, if it was initially unwelcome is, of course, debatable - But the point still stands. It's just so intriging to see that the Academy's internal politics are so deep rooted that they even apply to who you sleep with... But hey, that's villains for you! Always ones to hold a grudge! I got a kick out of Miss White, mainly because she reminded me of some of my lecturers... Not in that they'd sleep or flirt with you, just that kind of alien friendliness that didn't really exist in schools. It's nice to see that even in the academy, even the staff are portrayed as humans - And not some form of untouchable, unsociable freaks/pillars of wisdom you will never understand! In reply to her little rant though... All I can say is, you've been reading Watchmen! Aside from all that... One of the best descriptions of a public toilet I've ever seen! And can you remind me who Mr. David is? It's... Um... been awhile.
