Thanks for writing back, and again please accept my apology for assuming anything about your position. I prefer the goat-eating and gut-ripping to the singing and flower-wedding, myself. Sometimes this is taken a step further and you get a cleansed rough adaptation of the premise marketed directly to them. Each book grows progressively more mature, "growing up" with the reader. Never stooping to engage in petty tribal conflict like that silly Red Tribe, but always nobly criticizing my own tribe and striving to make it better. Say Black has an hour to plan something. Blue should be effectively immortal.
