i loved the beginning of this. i loved the trepidation of, “wait, what? is this really happening?” and all its goofy-spookiness. but then its goofy began to outweigh its spooky — which would ordinarily be fine; cantero’s brand of goofy is just what i like, but it started going somewhere i couldn’t follow. i don’t know if you need to have read (or seen) any harry potterses to best understand/appreciate this story, but i have neither read nor seen, although i ate some harry potter jelly beans one time, and they were gross. as a story that captures the spirit of childhood and slumber party logic and contagious terror, it’s a lot of fun. i just felt like i was missing something trying to read around all the harry potter bits. life is hard for the hp-ignorant. there’s safety in numbers and danger for lonesomes.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
