Setting as Character

When the Red Sox won the World Series, people went out to the cemeteries to tell the dead.

This panel heavily revolved about cities.  (Chicago in the Dresden Files series)  Welcoming cities, hostile cities, cities that can not be replaced in the story with any other city.  Indeed, one audience member wanted stories with a strong sense of place not set in a city.  (I put in The Girl Who Chased the Moon.)
