Re: Avenues of Communication (updated 4-17-19)

Another great chapter with significant development for Hisao. "You are not an island" is an important, humbling, lesson - learning it had a profound effect on me.

Re: Yet another one-shot thread (updated 2019-04-14)

Thank-you all! I wasn't even working on the second one, it was just an outline about old man Hisao looking back on his time with Saki, then... “Well, Hisao Scroff, you might be the first, but I don’t think you’ll be the last to be subconsciously influenced by popular lyrics.” ...I heard True Love Wa...

True Love Waits

He pulls himself up from the seat and shuffles to the kitchen. His body tells him to eat, to drink; he obeys though there is no savour to be had. As he washes the dishes he watches the children playing in the park across the road while the young mothers enjoy each other's company, one eye on their o...

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#56—'Comfort') (X)

It always seemed to me that you have a special affection for Shizune and Kenji, I bet you didn't have to think twice about which pairing to choose.

I found this heart-warming but the thought of a Shizune-Kenji alliance running amok after graduation is more than a little scary...

So much fun! Wonderful dynamics between Miki and Hanako, and Naomi and Natsume.

And there was me thinking you meant it to remain a mystery!

Evocative as always, you're great at painting pictures in my mind

Re: Yet another one-shot thread (updated 2019-04-03)

Yeah I was cross with Miki for thinking with her vagina, but then I realised that she's treating Hanako exactly the same way as she treats everyone else. No kid gloves, no allowances for her being "delicate", so I reluctantly gave her a pass, providing she dishes the goss at the earliest opportunity...

Re: Beyond The Haze : A Lilly pseudo-route - I-6 added 04-03-2019

I don't know what it is about this story that I like so much, if I were to read it with my head then there'd be many nits to pick. So I read it with my heart instead, and look forward to each update.

Manga Evening

Hanako opens her door and smiles when she sees Miki bearing snacks. Their weekly get-togethers are manga evenings in name only, neither of them is very interested in comics, but they enjoy each other's company so much that there is never a shortage of things to talk about. Miki notices a photograph ...

Re: Hanako Fancopter One-Shots/Misc. Stuff (Latest 4/1/19)

Another good one! Though I'm a little worried about Lilly's arc, before we know it she'll be conspiring with Kenji to eliminate everyone who stands in her way of becoming Queen of Yamaku. And I'm sure we know how that'll go...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20190318 Yamaku's Cheshire Cat)

I agree with the 'copter! I really enjoyed the Miki/Hisao scenes in Hanako's route and this story slots neatly into that continuity. We know what Miki thinks about Hanako from those scenes so it's nice to get the other side of the coin in the story. If there had been more to the kitchen scene then i...

Re: Yet another one-shot thread

Thanks to both of you for the encouragement. I really didn't expect that this piece would get such a positive reaction, being a mish-mash of how I see Yamaku, my reaction to what I've read about the education of kids with disabilities in Japan (e.g. https://doi.org/10.1515/cj-2016-0009 ), and my (pe...

Re: Yet another one-shot thread

Thank-you both for the kind words! The idea for this popped into my head when listening to REM's "Everybody Hurts" and it kept bugging me till I wrote it. Wonder who the mystery girl is? We can rule out Rin at least! In one sense she stands for Yamaku, promising Hisao a bright future if he turns his...

"Hang on..."

Hisao makes his way through the crowd, still unsure of the layout of the school grounds, the stalls and the people milling around them making navigation harder. He was not going to visit the festival but changed his mind when he found that the cafeteria was closed for the day. His belly is being ung...
