It will break, yes, and when it does the whole place will come down, but it will happen suddenly, not with any sort of gradual creaks getting more frequent or anything like that to warn you.

Do something green.

Oh! Something green!
>Green envelope. Now.
Also, +1 reader. Wanted to catch up before I told you, but I read it all in a matter of a few days, and I'm LOVING it! :D
Thank you so much for reading!
Do you mind if I ask, how long did it take you, in terms of hours, to read all of this? I have no real idea of how long this thing is…
