I'm with Andrew.  Honey-Love Bunny actually reminded me of my own
storyline, only with the guts to abandon continuity and go for all-out

Thanks for the reminder.  It's all one big serial when I read it, so
sometimes I forget the little stories need all the story elements just
like the big one does.

Leon was indeed intended as "point-of-view".  But now he's joined my
character stable, to emerge again when needed.  I haven't figured out
what he's learned yet, other than "Beware of Darkness".  I'd bet he
now sleeps with all the lights on in his house, though.
