Congrats, Jim! (It still amazes me that some people can get through your backlog in under a month.)
Somewhat related to Billy's first comment (kudos on the CSI reference there by the way, I chuckled), I'd be interested in knowing how the story evolved from it's first conception to where it is today some time. Like, Jim, I know you've said you'd have started with fewer characters if you'd foreseen where things were going, and I know some of the ones (like Amy) have evolved from background characters to support to almost full time members. How much of that's planned and how much of that's just seeing where the story takes you? How many elements are really just side stories to give readers a breather? How much relationship angst was in the cards? Do "arc" plans need to shift as earlier elements get fleshed out?
I dunno, don't feel you need to respond, it's only something with so much history feels like the evolution would be neat to look into sometime. (A "Behind the Scenes" for when the DVD is released. I wonder who will play Nick.) Congrats again.
