I don’t like Xellos paired with anyone except, perhaps, other Mazoku (though I’m still not 100% sold that Mazoku have something like love even for each other, but perhaps something based on loyalty, which they do have, or perhaps they’re into Sadomasochism with each other). It just goes against my concept of Mazoku to be loving.

I think an example of this is Rashatt in the novels. He was Gaav’s minion, but after Gaav dies rather than avenging Gaav or appearing torn up (or happy to be free from Gaav) about it, his allegiance changed to Hellmaster, the person who killed Gaav. So there’s extreme loyalty, but it’s very hierarchical and it doesn’t appear as though they have an emotional attachment to their superiors, equals or subordinates.

And I also don’t like Lina paired with anyone but Gourry, unless it was before she met him (like Lina and Naga, I don’t see it, but it doesn’t phase me much, or if she had a cute crush on the neighborhood boy before she left Zefiel City). Lina/Zel and Lina/Xellos both really aggravate me.

-Private practice peaked in December, ebbed in January, and is starting to pick back up again. People who've done this awhile say to get used to it. The good news is that even with the ebb I made enough to stay out of the red. And though it's good things are picking up again, it's also stressing me out. It seems every day I'm doing something work related, even if it is for a few hours. I was known for my work-home boundaries at work, but now that I own my own business, they are blurred and one blends into another and it's taking some getting used to.

In some ways I think working 4 tens (with three days off in between) has exacerbated this, especially since before I was working 4 tens I was working 3 twelves. Um, in my entire work career I've only had a 9 to 5 for 2 years, lol.
