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

While reading this beautiful story it occurred to me that After the Dream is a fractal rather than a mosaic: wherever you look there's more and more intricate, surprising detail to be found.

Re: Avenues of Communication (Complete)

untranslated words tend to be woefully insufficient when conveying tone and atmosphere. I had never come across this opinion before participating in this fandom and it makes no sense to me at all. I see untranslated words in literary fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, technical literature etc so I wonder wh...

Many thanks to Lap and Feurox for helping me de-clutter this tale; any remaining clutter is, of course, my responsibility. *** Hisao sighs unsteadily as the Principal walks off the stage.

Re: Yet another one-shot thread (updated 2019-09-06)

Thanks all for the really useful feedback - I tend to overthink the circumstances around my stories and consider the background to be "obvious", so it's good to be reminded that trails of breadcrumbs get eaten by birds

"Checkm-mate." "Dammit!" He slaps the table in frustration then frowns when he sees her flinch. "Sorry, I didn't mean to startle you." "I-its ok. What's wrong? I don't usually b-beat you so easily."

Re: Yet another one-shot thread (updated 2019-08-12)

Thank-you all for the lovely comments, it's such a fillip to read them. I didn't intend Quercus mongolica to be depressing per se, yes there's pain but by the end the only thing to actually lose out is the tree and it might be happy to not have Misha wahahaha~ing incessantly! And of course ...pirate...

Re: Respice Adspice Prospice - A Misaki Kawana Pseudo Route [Updated 8/17/19]

Intriguing update! Hints that Misaki likes Hisao but is steering him in Ikuno's direction because she loves her friend. Hisao being the only person in the whole world who hasn't cottoned on to how Ikuno feels about him, though he's not immune to her charms. Ikuno making the plays but not wanting Mis...

Thank-you so much Feurox, an amazing story and an incredibly generous dedication. Its immense personal significance, which you were completely unaware of, makes the dedication even more poignant.

Re: Lap's One shots & misc - New Entry 8-11-19

I enjoyed that very much! Akira explicitly says in Context that she feels like she failed Lilly as a nineteen year old so I can imagine her taking a belt-and-braces approach to Hisao, using her own observations as well as trying to find out what others think of him. Mutou wasn't falling for it thoug...

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#59—'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes')

I'm not at all ashamed to admit to brushing a manly tear from my eye after reading this. Misha didn't have an easy time of it in AtD so giving her many years of happiness here was wonderful.

Thoroughly modern pirates

The following post was written in response to Stiles Long's writing challenge. Each participant was given a list of KS character pairings and a list of locations. One of each was chosen for this fic, where we find out what happens when Hisao drags Emi into the library. *** "Omigosh Hisao, I'm not t...

Coach is hiding her annoyance at Emi's dumb decision to swim with open sores and regular bandages well. She can't have told Nurse of her plans otherwise I'm sure he'd have dug up water-proof plasters for her. Cleverly done, I don't remember reading other examples of Emi's tendency to self-sabotage.

Yeah, now you've shown it, I can imagine Yuuko having an internal monologue which races along at 100 mph, never pausing...
