I think a cry of help could be expressed in the fact I am contemplating finishing reading some stories I marked as 'bad for my digestion' a while back. I'm vaguely aware one should not take personally a story that damages your favorite character, but there's always the impulse to want to, I don't know, destroy small cities when it happens, then take away their keyboard and make them watch Favorite Character Highlights reel. Large cities are reserved for special occasions.
Yes, in other words, I again have nothing to do at work. *sighs*
