Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)(complete)

Yeah, I think in hindsight a lot of the side characters could've used a bit more time to make impressions and have more depth. Adachi in particular, actually--I continue to feel that I didn't quite do her justice in this piece. The Sumi/Ryou plotline only really got one beat for Hisao to interact wi...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)(complete)

I've known for some time that the next Haruhi piece I would write would be Unhandled Exception and that it would concern Nagato, but I've only started actually writing it properly in the last month, having spent most of my time on The Coming of the First Ones or the Identity rewrite project since fi...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)(complete)

Thank you very much for your comments. The Coin and this piece are both special to me; I'm glad you've enjoyed them. You're right to observe that Hisao has grown a little more off-screen than Rin has. It probably comes from Hisao having his own problem (the plotline about his research) that was sepa...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

Devotion Epilogue When I open my eyes, the sun comes through the blinds in narrow bands, creating a pattern of light and shadow on the sheets. It has to be morning. It's too bright to still be afternoon or evening. The night was peaceful, I think. Rin is a calm sleeper. I sometimes think she dreams...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

Note: this scene contains explicit content. The next two days are a bit easier and more relaxed. Only the passage of time helps me realize how much all these issues were weighing on me. Even homework seems positively relaxing compared to what I've been dealing with. I can't keep four different thin...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

Either two or three, depending on how I split them. I'm taking a break from other writing projects to try to deal with my editing backlog, so hopefully it won't be long.

Re: Direction (post Rin bad ending)

Good chapter again, except for the part in the beginning where Jirou and Michel give their advice. I had to think for a moment about just what felt wrong about the passage, but I think somehow their monologues feel more like rehearsed speeches than natural dialogue... Yeah, that makes sense. I'll p...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

After our first class, Sumi drags me to her office and sits me down at the desk beside hers. There is a proper occupant to this desk, a Chinese guy I've spoken to once or twice, but he doesn't respond when spoken to, so I don't know his name. He keeps his things entirely in the overhead drawer, so I...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

I feel a little beat when I finally get back home. It's getting close to noon, so hopefully I can scrounge something up to eat before heading in to class. Actually, I might just skip classes today. It's been an exhausting morning, and I could stand the time to recharge. I put my key in the lock, but...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

Deluge Chapter Four Thanks to a map from a friendly bus driver, it's not hard for me to make my way back to toward Toudai, but I'm not ready to go home, not just yet. Mutou urged me to tackle one problem at a time and break it down, and I'm doing that. My first stop is Rin's school. In a lot of way...

Re: Direction (post Rin neutral ending)

Would be an improvement imo. I agree. This is really good stuff. I took lots of physics as an undergrad, but never took it as far as Hisao is here. Obviously you have a lot of knowledge of physics. I think you're pretty good at explaining it to non-physicists. Thanks; I'm a physicist by trade mysel...

Re: A thought about Shizune's Path

Hisao is very self-conscious and averse to embarrassment. ... Yes, Hisao's rapid learning of sign is contrived. There's no denying that. Hisao would likely be a poor sign student. Sign class is all about participation, if you're afraid of making mistakes or looking silly then you'll just sit there ...

Re: A thought about Shizune's Path

My issues are likely entirely personal problems with how the story is going so far, but I'd still like to hear some discussion. (PLEASE spoiler if it's past Shizune act 2 or in another path) OK. So I had this great idea in act 1 about Shizune and Hisao eventually learning to communicate through sig...
