You know, I was all set to have this post ready to go on time a week ago. Then I made the rookie mistake of not hitting "save" before navigating away. Feeling more disgusted than angry, I've been putting it off until whatdayaknow it's another week later and it's time for the next viewing session. This isn't half the post it used to be.
This(last) week we had one addition to, and two losses from, our merry band. Crest of the Stars volumes 2 ane 3 were on the menu.
The first episode of volume 2 is a bit of a downer.
Crest can come across as extremely dull if you don't find yourself becoming interested in the Abh and the world building involved. I know a couple people were having trouble following the space battles. Plane Space combat appears very cluttered until you start to wrap your head around the concept.
(Something that has always bothered me is if/how they are able to resolve where exactly one space-time bubble will intersect with another bubble. There's an extra undefined variable that they shouldn't be able to magically predict. But then again, I don't remember Gosroth ever turning into a convergence point before "the glow" began to appear on the bubble's surface.)

I've fallen out of the habit of composing my (longish) posts in Word before bring them over. I had to do that all the time because of random Blogger crashes, mostly because of their "autosaving" feature.
Bah. I lost more posts to the ether that way...
But with Minx, I'll step away half-way through writing and come back later with little fear of loosing my work to anything other than my own stupidity.
