Fic­tion:

Fan­fic­tion:

  • Sig­nifi­cant Dig­its (Harry Pot­ter and the Meth­ods of Ra­tio­nal­ity: se­quel in­tended to con­clude the sto­ry; more ac­tion-fo­cused with a lit­er­ary bent, and much less didactic/“au­thor tract” and Har­ry-fo­cused than MoR. Highly rec­om­mended for any­one who liked MoR.)

Film/TV

Live-ac­tion:

  • (pe­cu­liar Cary Grant WWII com­e­dy-dra­ma; it’s un­usual to see Grant cast as a mis­an­thropic drunk­ard and the movie can’t quite de­cide whether to be deadly se­ri­ous or comedic, but most of the comedic beats are highly pre­dictable)

Ani­me:

  • ([/Anime-reviews#short-peace))
  • (ex­pan­sion of Death Bil­liards, as an episodic se­ries; sto­ries re­main a bit heav­ily fo­cused on sui­cide and mur­der, but while the dark back­ground story arc ul­ti­mately ends in a whim­per, the main story arc ends in an emo­tion­ally sat­is­fy­ing way)
