Re: Yamaku Book Club (20190916 Yields Six Servings)

Yields Six Servings Not exactly sanitary, but it's the best I can do. If I had to choose one line to represent the entire story, this would be it. It is cute and slice-of-lifey, for sure.  The continuous messiness and hygeine issues are somewhat unsettling, but understandable, and hey, all the bett...

Re: The Kintsugi Club and Other Stories [08/28/2019]

This story represents the end of what I’m half-jokingly titling the ‘Feels’ trilogy. [...] My thanks as always to those who read and enjoy this story. I hope you can connect with it. I'll admit that, reading that opening, I expected another very sad story.  In my opinion, that wasn't what I got - i...

Re: Time is Dancing and Other Stories [08/28/2019]

My word, that was depressing. Really depressing. Like, human condition -level depressing. In my own life, I have experience with significantly altering the brain, but only for the better, and always with my hand on the emergency stop, which has certainly been used before. The thought of it being irr...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20190826 CplCrud on Hanako)

H29 - Future It's strange to think that this might be the first of this type of story.  I've read a handful of stories that explore this concept, putting forward different reasons, approaching the same outcome - but this one likely isn't derivative of those. Personally, this isn't how I'd do this c...

Re: Fallen Leaves & Broken Clocks/A Conversation on the Roof

Fallen Leaves and Broken Clocks "You've been reading too much poetry," she'd said. A very meta point, given Hisao's monologuing. This was a piece of rather purple prose. Luckily, I have a huge soft spot for this sort of poetic language, so I loved it. It really did fit Hisao's character, too; he's ...

Re: Da Capo

As others have said, you really put together quite a good plot, and managed to make the start feel dynamic by only trickling in exposition when needed. Makes for a good read, bolstered by good general writing and no obvious errors. The idea of this story is intriguing, and even though we as readers ...

Re: Crafty's One-Shots (Aug 11th, 2019: The Longest Road)

Damn we never got to find out which girl it was with Hisao huh? I'm guessing Emi though maybe Rin also fits. While I of course tried to provide a lot of detail about Hisao's feelings and relationship, I did also specifically set out to make sure that this story was written without any particular gi...

Re: Ekephrasis and Other Stories [08/14/2019]

I'm not really the crying type It's still true. But this time, it didn't matter. Absolutely brilliant. The characters work well, including Kaiko, who is from the very beginning just too sweet without being, well, too sweet. Hisao and Rika's relationship seems organic, which is easy when things are ...

Re: COM(promise) - A Miki Route (Updated Oct 15th, 2018)

I'd also praise your depiction of Suzu, though we certainly take her in different directions :lol:! You're absolutely right there - I can remember the first time I read your take on Suzu, and being surprised at just how different she was from my own depiction. As far as anything constructive, I'd d...

Re: Ekephrasis and Other Stories [07/23/2019]

The opening line, along with the situation, tickled something in my tired brain last night. And so, against my better judgement, I took to Microsoft Paint, brandishing naught more than my mouse and keyboard, using only the default color palette and entirely without visualization capability due to Ap...

Re: Ekephrasis and Other Stories [07/23/2019]

Short and interesting. The phrase "ships passing in the night" comes to mind, but isn't really appropriate... More like ships passing in broad daylight, but with the first believing that the second is derelict, and the second convinced that the first is a whale. The characters seemed fluid and belie...

Re: Crafty's One-Shots (Jul 6th, 2019: Dead of Night)

The following post was written in response to Stiles Long's writing contest. Each participant was given a list of KS character pairings and a list of locations. One of each was chosen for this fic. There were a limited set of options available to participants in the contest and it may be that this ...

Re: Crafty's One-Shots (Jul 6th, 2019: Dead of Night)

It's the most ridiculous and insane and entertaining tragicomic one-shot in the forums. I used to think my strange one-shots were one-offs, but after so many, I might just have to come to terms with being 'that guy who writes weird stuff'. Hisao needs to take lover lessons from Misha. Well... Misha...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (shit nobody cares about: the game)

shit nobody cares about: the game An absolutely wonderful read. As you said, that feeling of dread is conveyed excellently, and I found Hisao's internal monologue to be well-characterized. The descriptions were raw and explicit, and the cascade of 'plot twists' - while far from surprising to the re...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20190715 Radioactive/Call of Yamaku)

Radioactive Okay, I'll start by saying that I'm not a huge fan of this type of story as KS fan fiction. It's difficult to make a good piece of first-person action as is, and tying it in with KS canon never felt like it offered anything. I felt the same way about Meadows' Titanium (similar style): i...
