Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

Even so, his world is slightly different from ours. Differences will become more apparent as the story progresses, but that's one of them. Again: If your world differs from the real world in any significant way, you have to tell your readers - preferably IN the story and not in a comment after you'...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

If he is a Scot, his native language is English! Only about 1% of Scots are even able to speak Gaelic. Only half of them are fully literate in it. NONE of them have Gaelic as their native tongue. The last native Gaelic speaker died in the 1970s. Actually, I think most Scots' native language is Scot...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

Could have him trip up on words and when he doesn't know it, he starts speaking English for the words he doesn't know. Could be a fun way to have misinterprete wordy situations. It is a way I'd do it, and plan to in mine. :) That could work. Well, a good way to start would be to - use short sentenc...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

We only get to see what you write down. It is possible that his Japanese is imperfect in your head, but if you want to get that across to your readers you have to put in some effort. And to get imperfect language across is hard enough if the text is written in the language they are supposed to be s...

Exactly. He learned a foreign language - well enough to be perfectly fluent in it
He's not supposed to be perfectly fluent. He knows enough to deal with his business and to get around, but that's it.

He learned how to speak it out of courtesy, but never needed to learn how to read it beyond romaji.
Do you even realize what that sounds like?
It sounds like he spoke with people but all written documents were in English?

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

and was spelled out in hentaigana. In what??? :lol: Hentaigana is the Japanese equivalent to Ye Olde Englishe Texte Fonte. Although they seemed to be speaking Japanese, Hanako could not understand anything of what they were saying. Sure, she could understand the words well enough, but that didn’t m...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

Angus and Hanako were walking side by side down the street in Yamaku Town. They had passed the park and were starting to get to the part of town Hanako was less familiar with. She wasn’t particularly enthused with spending the walking, much preferring to spend time reading, but unfortunately the Yam...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

Everything has to belong to one town or another. Who would be in charge of building permits, local taxes, maintaining access routes etc. And how would you address something at all if it were not part of a town? That's a good point. Fortunately, its a minor detail with absolutely no bearing on the p...

“Sl-sleeping won’t fix this, Lilly!”

“Then… what will, Hanako?”
I think there's a saying that goes something like, "drinking can't fix anything, but it can make the unfixable tolerable," or something like that. Not sure how applicable it is in this situation though :lol:

Uh... Yamaku is a part of that town
I always interpreted it as Yamaku being outside of the town. Maybe I read too much into it.

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

A couple of illogical things in this one, but let me just point out that he apparently traveled halfway around the world without knowing the name of the place he was going to - and apparently he arrived anyway... He knew the name of the big city where his hotel was at, and he knew the name of the s...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

Hisao returned from his first run with Emi. It wasn’t much of a run since he was so out of shape; he had actually done worse this time than he had at the beginning of the school year. He showered and put on new clothes before leaving the dorms. He managed to miss Kenji on the way out. He was hopeful...

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

Rothkos is what I assumed the plural of a Rothko, or a painting by Rothko would be. But you make a good point anyways. I'll bump it down to maybe 400? Or should it be lower?

Re: Unforeseen Consequences, Katawa Shoujo Forums Edition

And the strangest thing is I have no idea WHY you would even force this scene in the first place, except to drop a few cameos and show off that Angus is filthy rich - but we already know that from the fact that he was able to simply travel to Japan on a whim. Most of that scene was cameo and reinfo...
