Subject: I actually had time to read and comment!

It is so nice to see Ix not jumping at absolutely everything. She still blushes and demurs at anything too much like praise, but she's not aggressively self-deprecating anymore. Thank goodness! ^_^

Biggest laugh: “How do vampires wipe their asses with these talons?” Charlotte, asking the important questions! {X D Yes, I am a mature adult, why do you ask?

Not too sure I buy the accurate prediction of the Sue being a daughter or incarnation or whatever of Zeus? It's not a huge issue, but it threw me for a second. I read it as the agents just joshing about D&D and stuff that Sues pull in other continua up until it turned out to be exactly the case. I think maybe going from D&D to Greek gods in Castlevania doesn't quite track. Not sure what pantheon would make more sense in Castlevania... Roman, maybe? Or they could've stuck with the D&D analogy? And that would put them in the right ballpark without seeming precognitive. Anyway, not a suspension-of-disbelief dealbreaker or anything, just a moment of "oh, really? 'Kay." {= )

I liked the bit at the end with the three mains discussing what had happened. It was refreshing, seeing them act like themselves.

Couple additional typos:

  • to mingle with the survivor’s of last night’s attack - survivors

  • verse, Sides, cause and other such abbreviations - ’verse, ’Sides, ’cause, etc. (Need an apostrophe, not an opening quote. Nitpicky as it gets, I know.)

Overall, I enjoyed this. Netflix's Castlevania is great, the Sue was really annoying, and the agents were fun to follow along.
