sorry for replying with useless nonsense to say but it still amuses me that people who made their account 6 years ago still visit these forums.
Yeah... I decided I'd be here till 2024. Then, of course, something critical happens in the timeline.

Re: Yet Another One-shot Repository (New Entry 12/24/19)

I like Shizune/Kenji pairings. The nature of the interactions between Jigoro and Kenji, and Hideaki and Kenji, are largely hint-only here, but it's a good vignette. And the tying it all up with a canon shot, that's good too!

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#63—'Winterhome')

Wow, Brythain. That was wonderfully powerful for some reason. I utterly adore the flash-in-the-pan style, with life rapidly taking place around the edges. There's a beauty to the snippets of this story, like we don't need the in-betweens. Wonderfully done, as always Bry. You continue to inspire my ...

Re: Feurox's Den of Sadness [01/05/2019]

Aha, this is good stuff. It establishes you as a prime author of melancholic material.

It's OK not to get into too much detail. Sometimes, quick, dark brushstrokes are all you need to outline characters and their feelings. Or at least, that is (as you know) the way I think about it.

Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#63—'Winterhome')

This one's written for the 2019 Secret Santa project initiated by ProfAllister. Victim: PKMNthiefChris Prompt: Hisao and the routeless girl of your choice (Miki, Suzu, Saki, Ikuno, etc. OC's accepted if that's how you're inclined) will not be going home for the holidays. What do they do for Christm...

Re: Secret Santa 2019 - Story collection

I tried my best and I hope you all enjoy this, especially you Brythain. Hey, Tetrax... the Mahabharata and Ramayana were two of the earliest epics my father fed me when I was a kid. This has unexpected resonance, and I enjoyed it very much because of that. What a strange and wonderful juxtaposition...

Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#62—'Secrets')

This one's written belatedly for the 2018 Secret Santa project initiated by ProfAllister. I’m not a good ‘fluff’ writer, so I apologise in advance. It's also rather fragmented, I'm afraid. Too much to write, too little time. :( Victim: Vekter Prompt: I'd like some fluff/cute Hisao x Misha stuff, so...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20191202 The Pusher)

I remember reading this story and knowing it was a fantastic story that I never wanted to write. For years now, one of the courses I teach covers a lot of these substances, their mechanism of action, and stuff like that. I shudder. And yet, this story is so very unlikely for Japan. See, for example,...

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...
