So I'm going to bed and I'll write the rest of it tomorrow. I know everything that happens, and I'm at the point where I just really wish I could download.
Also, the sooner I finish it, the sooner I get to spend a couple of days glutting myself on books and serial television.
It is possible that the thing I love most about the New Amsterdam continuity is that I get to put medieval Paris, London, and Moscow back where they belong. Because in this continuity, nobody bulldozed, bombed, or burned them. Well, okay, bits of London got bombed. But not until 1937 or so.
Sadly, not-St. Petersburg is a total loss, however.
