I have waited long enough! *unwraps her present*

... DAMN. Really short (which isn't a bad thing), and quite simple, but as excellently written as all your stories, and a worthy and atmospheric ending to the show (Dean's part of it, at any rate). The central metaphor strikes a chord with me: I've had moments like that, where my life really seemed to take the form of an easily readable grid depending on which way I would go. The title is good, too.
Spoiler
Full marks. This is as good as I could have wished. Thank you very much for this present, and recommended for all other Venture Brothers fans here.

I promise you, next year I will write you a longer thing! This one decided to come in so short - sort of Dean drawing an internal line and deciding to follow it!

Please never apologise for your story being short. :) (Not like mine was ultra-long, either.) This one was exactly the right size for the action.

I may write one or two stories about what happened to the characters after the end of the series, too. Stay tuned.
