...honestly, a major goal of mine with this series is to go back to the early LNH's furious ideaful chaos, and Teenfactor is an *enormous* well of that. Yeah, a lot of the execution was weird, flawed, and confusing. But you've always had good instincts, and there's always been something meaningful buried under the hormones and sugar buzz and struggling-to-exist-in-a-world-you-never-made. (Heck, sometimes that *is* the meaningful thing.)
