Broadband being iffy.

Have read Jane and the Genius of the Place, book picked up at random second-hand. I had no high expectations- everyone thinks they can pastiche Austen and no one can- but it's actually close enough to the original to remove me to a different world. Also finished Kohri 12, the last of that manga I have except for 23. I do like it. I like it a lot. And I still don't know why exactly. It must appeal to an inaccesible area of my soul. Alas, Silver Diamond looks much less interesting.

Went back to poking the dragon stories, all terribly unsatisfactory after writing Other People's Characters all last month. Should write a Gouen short and make Gouen a Gou Jian who writes poetry.
