Well, my problem isn't so much the Canon Status as it is saying, "This stuff 
you're invested in, that you worked so hard on, doesn't add anything to the 
story. We can ignore 90% of it and it'll be much better." And following that up 
with such a boring chapter is painful, especially since the last chapter was so 
interesting and good, and *that*'s where you chose to start cutting.

Andrew "NO .SIG MAN" "Juan" Perron, sometimes necessary cuts need to be made. 
This was not one of those times.
