Dear Protagonist With Whom I’m Becoming Reaquainted After Long Absence,
You never do anything the easy way, do you?
No, no, it’s not a problem, it’s …

Dear Shiny New Character Very Recently Created for this Project,
Are you sure you want to do that? It’s up to you, of course.
Only you should know that I’m having this debate right now. About whether you survive to the end of the book.
Not that that should influence your actions in any way. It’s totally up to you.
