Re: The Visual Novel

Fred is a friend of mine, but that doesn't mean that we share details about our finances with each other. You are asking the wrong person. I do plan to address one of your other questions later on though. The problem being: The person who could answer the questions isn't saying anything at all. Tha...

Re: The Visual Novel

"Beyond that, well, I think that will likely be it. Fred will be unhappy about that..."
