Apologies for lengthy delay between posts. Life intervened.
I should be back on a regular posting schedule now of 2 - 3 episodes per week.

Yay Zarq! So pleased to see this back, thanks for taking it up again and hope everything about life intervening is resolving in a good way.

Ah me, this series gets serious sometimes. Extended commentaries on history, love and fate; the choices we make to respond and the myths we tell ourselves about it.
