Music: Bach, Four Concerti For Various Instruments. This is my pretty much my standard Three Double Concertos with an extra one. Don't remember when I bought this CD.

Reason for stopping: End of chapter.

The reason I always write things on weird edges of genre is that I feel as if genres use small parts of the palette and I want more range. I can't understand people who want the answer to be mundane, who want to dismiss magic as madness or faked up, because that's just so boring. But I also can't understand why having magic be real means that I have to have an adventure plot. And with this, there are people who say that alternate history with no time travel isn't SF because... look, the Winged Victory of Samothrace! Because it sure isn't mainstream. Oh well.
