Lady Louise… I’m so glad that you aren’t kept separated from your family. Please be happy… you and Lord Pent and Erk…
[/Private]

Thank you, everyone, for all the wonderful books I received at Christmas! They were all very good! And my room is now starting to resemble the one I kept back home!

Jinbocho… What a wonderful place that was! It was well known for its number of book stores! I visited the area and fell in love with it, so I bought a building nearby, and filled it with books! All of the shopkeepers were so nice to me! Some even hung my picture in the windows, labeling me their best customer and requesting the staff treat me nicely.

My favorite store was Toto’s Books. The owner was very selective about who he sold his books to… he even networked with the other store owners to judge if you were worthy of perusing his collection. He allowed me into his store very soon after I arrived. His shop held some very rare and hard to find books… sometimes they could be rather expensive, but even if I didn’t have enough money to cover the cost of a purchase, he would let me take it on credit and pay him back in the future. What a wonderful man!

I hope they’re all doing well back home… and that business hasn’t suffered too badly in my absence…

It sounds like you had a pretty amazing time there, Yomiko. Can't say I'd think the same way about a bookstore, but I'd like to visit it someday.

It was a book lover's dream, Jaime. All of those books and everyone was so kind, even though I wasn't a native of Japan. I'm sure you'd enjoy it there!

I don't know... Japan's kinda far from my hometown, but I'll think about it when I get back?

Oh, right...

...I wonder if Jinbocho exists in your world... I hope so! No reality ought to be deprived of such a wonderful source of books!

Considering we've got crazy superheroes in my world, a place like that wouldn't be much of a stretch.

Remember that comic book you gave me for Christmas? Funnily enough, most of the ideas in there seemed to happen in my world.

/wow, forgot this tag, sorry :<
Well, yeah... if you count "buildings getting blown up all the time" as interesting.

No worries!
Oh... er... well, I suppose "interesting" is one adjective that might be applied to that situation. "Destructive" and "property damaging" might be others...
