As we've welcomed our Rose/Blue 'shipping friends to the shelter of the comm, I think that a discussion is called for. To sum up: What the fuck?

I agree to a certain extent, but think it may be on an upswing. Personally, I thought the war was pretty weak after all of the build up. I'm liking the new level of baddies, though.

You're right about the collapse not being plausible. Somebody would have noticed and freaked out. Plus, wouldn't be suspicious that there was a major building collapse, but little to no dust? This is supposed to by NYC- they know what it looks like after a building comes crashing down. I can give some leeway for the magic, but not this much.

Maybe. Depends on how this plays out. I'll keep reading, no question there, but I really miss the days of character-driven plots.

*nodnod* Recall during March of the Wooden Soldiers, all the magic users on the 13th floor gave it their all to keep attention away from the battle -- and even then, they whammied a news report so that anyone it didn't catch who noticed noises or flames would think it something normal.

The collapse of the Woodland, on the other hand . . . they were all rather distracted due to the evacuation, and all the base spells -- the ones that helped ensure people would pay the street no mind and so forth -- had unraveled. Thirty seconds in(and I'm only allowing that to give it time to register and for running time), you'd get mundys running in going "Oh shit, not again. What can I do to help?"; by the time Bigby decided to shift, there'd be a fire truck or twelve on the way, rescue teams prepping, and news reports interrupting regularly scheduled programming.
