It’s a fantastic narration. The protagonist was a right bastard [edit: {at times... other times, he earned my pity}]. He reminded me of a callus John Constantine.
Nice [edit: 2-part episode].

This was really fun! I loved the forms magic could take, clothes-bound magic is delightful. I grieved that selfish love poisoned (literally) the relationship between the protagonist and his ex, but he ended up in a pretty good place, in my opinion.
