Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 10 It was somewhat ironic that in physics class we were studying relativity at the moment, because time had never seemed more relative than it did that day. Hanako was due back on the seven o’clock train. Approximately twelve hours after breakfast. So I was unsure how it was that it felt li...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 9 The warmth of Ishigaki kept us warmed and cheered for a couple of weeks after the start of the school year. I’d never taken a vacation like that before, and was pleasantly surprised at how it truly did help to restore and reinvigorate me, allowing me to dive into my new courses, and new c...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 8 I stared at myself in the bedroom’s mirror, and suddenly I sympathized more with Hanako’s reaction to first donning the surf suit. In the past when swimming, I had always worn baggy swimming trunks, not the skin-tight briefs that some men favored. But now, I was on full display. The suit ...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 7 Lilly returned the Monday a week before the new school year began, “So I’ll have time to recover from the jet-lag,” she said. I wasn’t able to meet her at the airport because of work, but Hanako did. I hadn't been fully aware of how much I'd missed Lilly until I got home from work to find...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 6 My mother packed us a couple of bentos to take with us on the train, even though the trip was barely two hours long. At least it would save us from having to buy lunch, which was nice. We hugged both of my parents good bye early in the morning before they headed off to work, and a while l...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 5 The flurry of final exams that came at the end of the school year were tough, but not as tough as previous semesters’ had been. I don’t know if that was because I just had easier classes this term (hah), or if I was getting used to the pace of university life. Lilly finished with exams fi...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 4 I was just coming out of class when I spotted a familiar blonde head sitting on a bench across the quad, despite the cold weather. I had a half hour until my appointment, so I crossed over to where Lilly was sitting. “Hi, Lilly,” I called as I approached, but I got no response. As I drew ...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 3 I was almost out the door on my way to class one Wednesday morning when my phone rang with Hanako’s ringtone. “Hi, Hanako, what’s up?” I answered. Phone in one hand, I tried to slip my backpack on. I had what felt like a hundred kilos of notes and books for today’s classes, and it was awk...

Re: Home (Complete)

Chapter 2 One Friday, as I exited the elevator, I spied an armless redhead sitting in the doorway of our apartment, a large messenger bag on the floor by her side. “Rin?” I called out, puzzled. No response. I walked over to the door and saw that she was asleep, leaning against the doorframe. I crou...

Re: Home (Complete)

Thank you, all, for the lovely comments. I must confess, I too agree that Ogata's sub-plot was not well done—it was the weakest part of the story. I think he was a victim of my desire to get to the start of the poly relationship right away. Were I to rework this story, I'd start a few weeks earlier,...

Re: Time is Dancing (Notes)

I love the story & what you've done with it. Such a melancholic ending. I think this is the first KS story I've read that deals with a stroke & the changes that follow; it's a powerful thing. Not every story, every relationship, can end happily, and this felt like a very natural progression & outcom...

Re: Ekephrasis and Other Stories [08/14/2019]

So I stop to take a break from my labors and see, Hey! A new story from Feroux! Hurrah! Good way to take a break.

...uh...

Sure, just rip my heart out and stomp on it a few more times, why don't you.

Brilliantly done, and a wonderful set of new characters. Thank you for this story.

Re: Hanako Fancopter One-Shots/Misc. Stuff (Latest 7/8/19)

Ahh, Rin and Kenji. A classic pairing. Like a jellyfish in the desert, or a goldfish swimming in vodka. Just made for each other. :lol:

I'm not normally a big fan of Kenji, but this made me laugh. Well done.
