We’ve mentioned this elsewhere, but after running a poll on Twitter, we’ve decided to push through to the end of X instead of pausing for Rayearth(and other series released during its early run). We’re too far in to turn back now, and X feels like a good series for the very dark and very depressing year that is 2020. We’ll save the lighter stuff for 2021, when either things will be better, or we’ll be in even more need of a light pick-me-up.
Nothing is set in stone, but here’s a quick road-map for the year ahead!
As another little bonus, this is the first episode of our brand-new, writing-centric podcast Write for Me, Write for You, where we chronicle our attempts to finish a novel (each) in 2020. If you enjoy this episode, you can add the podcast to your podcatcher of choice using this link: https://feed.podbean.com/writeforme/feed.xml
This week we take a quick break from our usual content and share our first bonus episode, in which we dive in to sci fi classic They Were Eleven by Hagio Moto. Although most of our bonus episodes will be exclusive to our $5 and up patrons on Patreon, we wanted to share this episode with all of you!
We continue our read through X with vol 6, and things really start taking off.

CW: blood, gore, death, assault, and other grisly things. Also a potentially glib/dark humor approach to grim subjects. We joke about death, specifically familial death, a lot in these episode (it’s one of those laugh-so-you-don’t-cry things).
