    Knew it was only a matter of time before Si finally put the shutitups to people finding "holes" in the story. Overdue.

    I mean, Warren would have nipped that shit in the bud in two seconds.

    Reckon Si's right about the reaction to tossed babby. Throw a babby at someone, (uncrossed) they'll try to catch it, every time. Not try to punch it, kick it, or in this case, shoot it. Instinct, innit? And Lurker, you're right, Ellis would have made posters AFRAID totry picking holes in his ( pretty much flawless) writing. I've been over FA with a fine pernickity toothcomb, and found no continuity issues. And once WYWH is finished and complete, Ill wager my left nut it will bear equally picky scrutiny without being found wanting. Not that t's leaky as it is, but you can't make continuity or plot calls on a project that's ongoing anyway. That's only for obsessive pedants, and cellar dwelling fanboys.

    Giving people the benefit of the doubt (I know, I know, I should have been a defense attorney), I choose to believe that such nitpicking comes from an enthusiasm for the story. It's just that we're reading what is essentially a multi-volume novel in tiny chunks. Much of the majesty can't be fully appreciated until you read it as a whole.

    Agreed. But while you may be a defence Lawyer on the quiet, I seem to be a High Court Judge at heart, and often pass erroneous and even spurious Judgements on people. More so online, but that's because it's so easy to blurt out what you think based on one stupid statement. And that shit can be great form of entertainment for a trollish personality like myself. And it IS the internet, so everyone else is a troll by default too.

    See how sweeping, generalising and judgemental people get? (And when I say "people", I'm obviously referring to myself) What a stupid statement! I really crack me up sometimes.
