Fortnightly* Update #10

Running a bit behind. I was gone most of the weekend with little internet access. You would think that then I got a lot of reading done, but unfortunately, despite my resolve to start getting through a lot of manga/graphic novels I have to help out my overall reading challenge, I just have been running around this last week and it didn't really happen.

 

*I've decided to change this a bit to a bimonthly update, on the 1st and 15th of each month. But I'm keeping the name, since I really like the word fortnight.
