Quite enjoyed seeing the followup to "Further Arguments", meeting more of the family, and exploring more of the fantastical world surrounding our characters. Loved the narrative voice, and the narrative voice.
Previously, I found Yudah to be just an opportunity to play with a stereotypical jewish Patriarchal voice, and his trans identity as just a convenient way to slip in a joke. Thanks to this story, and the chance to listen to it, I now love Yudah's distinctive personality as well as his quirky and distinctly unconventional family, and have a chance to see what being, in modern terms, a trans man really means for him and the sacrifices he has to make.
I'm glad this story shed a new light on the other story for you.
FWIW, to me personally, I didn't read the trans identity as a convenient joke in the other one. I thought the reveal was funny, but not in the sense of "haha, the rabbinical student is trans, how hilarious". But rather, the oddly pragmatically flat way of revealing the identity as being probably the way I would least expect a trans identity to be revealed.
I really appreciate this story to find out that they did indeed end up together (which the other story never resolved), and to see that they are working it out. I would also love to see more stories with these characters.
