*cackles* I mean, I had to have them suggest that sort of thing, and it just 
seemed perfect.

You know, this reminds me of something I was thinking about. After another 
friend said that the meta-ness of the LNH prevented immersion for them, I gotta 
wonder if my idea of "immersion" is different from everyone else's - because I'm 
fully able to be what I consider "immersed" while, at the same time, being 
perfectly aware that I *am* reading, and that what I'm reading is fiction (and 
not particularly realistic fiction, at that). Heck, I couldn't have made it 
through Limp-Asparagus Lad were it otherwise, and that's one of my favorites.
