I actually loved this chapter! I was kinda meh on the Marley arc at first, but this completely changed my feelings on it!! Seeing everything from the Warriors’ perspective is a refreshing change of pace.

Bertolt is the God of Destruction, RBA deserved better, Magath is actually a nice guy, poor Porco has a terrible name and deserves more love

This is the first chapter in the Marley arc I’ve wholeheartedly enjoyed. I was always looking forward to getting the Warriors’ perspective, but the way in which it’s been done has been terrible pacing wise, if definitely interesting story-wise; consequently I’ve had mixed feelings about the recent chapters. But this one managed to really make me feel for the characters and their tragic, terrible circumstances for the first time in awhile.

Good chapter in terms of lore although kinda meh in terms of story development

I liked the chapter, and the Marley thing we are going through, but I would still like to return to the walls

Not the strongest chapter, feels the same kind of “recap-y” that 63 did, but still a solid outing. I’m convinced we’re staying in Marley as the main location for the final arc of the series, with the main cast’s appearance kicking events into overdrive.

speaking of Halloween mood, I recommend you guys to try reading Roger Zelazny’s “A Night In The Lonesome October.” It’s basically a monster mash of everyone from Dracula to Rasputin to witches to celtic druids and so on, when all these different supernatural beings come together on Halloween to play a metaphysical great Game, and it’s told from a point of view of a dog. I won’t spoil more about plot and characters, because it’s not a horror story, but more of mystery\thriller with bits of dry humor thrown in, and the characters, though being instantly recognizable, have a lot of surprising twists and humanity about them, that they don’t feel like exploited cliches. 

It also has a unique voice that mixes eldritch, supernatural and dreamlike with reality in a casual, almost understated way, where both horrors and miracles are a part of a daily life (and part of a one dog’s job). 

It also has one of the best Enemies-to-Friends narratives I’ve ever read, where it’s actually Enemies-to-Friends-But-We-Still-Hold-Different-Philosophies-But-Respect-Each-Others-Points-and-Experiences-That-Formed-Them.

Zelazny has his problems, like use of g*psy slur (though he doesn’t paint these characters negatively), but overall “A Night In The Lonesome October” is a uniquely atmospheric short novel that pays loving homages to lots of pop culture stereotypes, while changing and exploring them enough to craft it’s own cohesive large narrative and thematic conflict. And if the style works for you, it’s a lot of fun.

Every time I take a H.R. “Assessment” that has nothing to do with the job I would be doing and is just a bizzare mind game where they say that something doesn’t count when it actually does I’m reminded why I work freelance and gig based jobs as opposed to working for a company.

No but uhhh the convention was super neat, I got this thick ass History of NES games and it’s super detailed AND alphabetical, written by UH.. like… “the video game historian” or some YouTuber? I’ll have to look him up I am very invested.

Then there was a video game museaum and we talked to this super cool dude who was in charge of this collection of unreleased NES games, bizzare titles like the Californian rasins video game and stuff and he talked to us for awhile and showed us some of his favorites. Big fans.
