It’s Thanksgiving, and that means two things:
1. Your author is going on a break of at least one week.
2. He didn’t realize that he didn’t have enough in his notebook for a regular post today.
So you end up with this, instead, which is probably a nice surprise: it’s just a hair over a thousand words, which is like five updates in one.
Since it’s Thanksgiving-time, I thought I might try something feast-inspired and happy. (Note: minor spoilers follow.)
Although it’s a good ending, I don’t know if I’d call it, in the fashion of visual novels everywhere, the true ending. You’ll just have to stick around and see the end of The Long Retreat for that.
