Chapter 8 of II is finished. I think from now on I'll skip the ponythread prereading process and just publish the chapters when I'm done with them. Not that I don't appreciate the feedback when I get it, I just can't justify delaying each chapter like this. Better to just publish it and let everyone read and critique it.
I am sorry, I fell behind before and will not have time to catch up until December due to school.
By and large it worked because this community has common interest in understanding how other human beings think in conjunction with a shared amusement at watching other humans inflict suffering on themselves for entirely delusional reasons.
