Re: Yamaku Book Club (20191111 Two Old & Colourful Pieces)

These were entertaining. I didn't immediately remember reading them even though I think I read through the entire corpus as it existed back in 2014.

I think they made little impression because they made so little attempt to be canonical while still having some fun of their own.

Re: NuclearStudent's Story Repository

I have no idea what I have just read - I didn't finish reading - but it seems to fit in well with the "dream" theme of this batch's stories. Though in this case it's probably more drug-induced hallucinations... I'm not sure why all of us turned in dream-like entries. I know that I had an incredibly...

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#61—'Paralysis')

This was a wonderful story, if actually quite heartbreaking. I’ve been thinking about doing another Saki story myself, and this certainly captures the trapped poetic beauty i’m aiming for. Suzu’s final act of reading the letter, and then drawing subconsciously, I can see them with Suzu gently cryin...

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#61—'Paralysis')

Very recently, I had a death in my family—the day I wrote this piece, in fact. Actually, the last few years have been pretty bad. Some of that has come out in the five years that I've been writing KS fanfic, and it has honed my art somewhat. So when I read the wonderful comments that people have wri...

"A policeman had appeared, and he began haraunging Misha and Yuuko for disrupting the piece yet again."

*haranguing
not sure if also *peace, but 'piece' works fine here.

This is truly a shaggy-dog story. Would love if you could separate the lines—easier to read. :)

Re: Hanako Fancopter One-Shots/Misc. Stuff (Latest 10/26/19)

This seems like it's about an old chesst nut.

As a player myself, I found it to have a conventional opening but there was 'fire on the board' as Alexei Shirov used to say.

Thank you, gentlepeople, for your kind comments. Yes, this was uncharacteristically frivolous of me, but I enjoyed it and I'm glad you did too! :)

It's the end of an era! Thanks for the closure. You're right that art is never completed, only abandoned.
