Though for the past year, the cases we've got have all been 4 (1,009–1,012 & 1,018–1,021) or 5 (1,013–1,017, 1,022–1,026 & 1,027–1,031) files long—this would be the first 3 file case since late 2017. So in a short-term (the span of 1 year is definitely short in this series' long history) context, this is actually a deviation from the pattern.
And speaking of cases only 2 files long, we haven't had one of those since the start of this decade (741–742/624)—a decade that'll soon end, at that.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
