    @Terabyte Thanks, Terabyte! I appreciate your time. I've gone ahead and applied your corrections.

    As far as the "4 consecutive periods" thing goes, those were representing an ellipsis along with a period to end a complete sentence, and it's actually the style I'm used to using. That said, I get the impression that people tend to prefer 3 dots for every instance of an ellipsis, so I've decided to go ahead and switch Parts 1 and 2 to the always-3-dots style, and I will maintain that style for future parts.

    @Zubonjin Yeah, every other LN on this site basically uses 3 dots so seeing 4 just felt wrong somehow. Thanks for making the change. 👍

    10% A 15-year-old and a 17-year-old dating definitely isn't normal.

    I'm sure the lady would be flattered, but she's a 27-year-old, not a 17-year-old.

    "N-No, it's fine... Actually, I'm sorry! I was heavy, wasn't I?!"

    One of the duplicates ought to be deleted. I'd suggest keeping the second one since it's using "it's" instead of "its".
