all this is to support my overarching thesis that if Shakespeare were alive today, his plays would be thinly-veiled bisexual Homestuck fan fiction with titles like "It Do Be That Way" and "Whomst'd've"

I finally read the second half of In The Night Garden-- much more quickly than the first half! It's possible they're meant to be read right after each other?
