I will get to your patreon when I have money, I just last month canceled all (but one) patreon accounts. It will take time to refresh after my job gets stronger.
I was just wondering, prompted by the character comment on Thanksgiving that the characters were thankful that none of them graced other's tables.
In our present pandemic, most people know someone who has died or some friend of a friend. But no character has come close since 2005. No character, no matter how minor has died. OK, Jeanne's influence. But someone should know someone who has. Statistics would force that.
As usual, I expecgt your answer will only address part of this and will be off in a direction of misunderstanding what I ask. (which is why I stopped using your daily support to ask questions)
(BTW the one patreon account I kept was one that allowed discord access to the thoughts and plans of the writer. Just to understand what is there abouit that account that made me keep it (marking research for you?) maybe check out MCA Hogarth's discord account.))
