Would I do it again? Ofcourse I would. I don't remember that much of it anyway. Only the good parts.
I'm pretty sure the gut is the emotional bank of the body. All, each and every moment of your historical adventures and misadventures, are soaked dry for emotions, spunged out of their society-induced-behaviours, and deposited in a safe vault deep in the gut, sometimes for more than their worth.
Which is why, if you feel it from the gut, it probably triggered something. Something with more substance than a heart flutter or a parchness of the throat. I'd listen to it.
Pourquoi? Because magic is rare. When it happens, or for that matter happens again, nothing else matters.
So go on, bash on regardless...
