Adding a Chapter

I always figured that the Shop chapters would eventually way outnumber the School chapters, especially as the Shop Timeline gets more and more complex and the School Timeline remains teenagers being idiot teenagers, so this isn't really a surprise.  The story itself isn't changing, but to fight off a chapter that looks like it could be 15k words at least, the formatting needs to be altered to keep the flow I like intact.

And of course by 'flow I like intact' I mean the mini-cliffhangers that drive you fans insane but also keep you reading till 3AM.

So...chapter +1.

FM1 was split even 8/8, FM2 was 9/8, and now FM3 will be 10/8.  I'll probably go with Shop-School-Shop-School-Shop-School-Shop-School-Shop-Shop-School-Shop-School-Shop-School-Shop-School-Shop.

Got it?

Say it ten times really fast.

I dare ya.
