Nice slice of life piece, it's good to see you venture outside Miki threesomes :)

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (New Artwork 10/25)

This one looks lovely euro! I especially like how Saki turned out.

Sorry to hear about the kidney stone, hope things cool down a bit and you can relax. Oh, and no need to hurry with LtF, we've been reading your stuff for half a decade now, what's another few years :)

I appreciate that it's not a particularly well received theme so I won't flood the place with them! But i think there are interesting things to explore, like Miki's need to blow off steam, that don't dwell on what they get up to in the bedroom
Looking forward to that exploration then :)

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Act 3 Completed 8/20)

No matter how bad things get, no matter how many things you lose control over, suicide is the one thing you still have control over. It's not the idea of killing yourself that you take comfort in, it's the sense of agency the ability to make a choice gives. This is exactly why Saki's view on suicid...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20180820 Blue Haired Girls)

This was really fun, despite an eye-watering number of SPaG issues :P It felt like Scissorlips' Suzu, which I think is the highest compliment a Suzu fic can receive :)

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Act 3 Completed 8/20)

I also don't really see why her desire to live life to the fullest should contradict a wish to marry. For many "becoming a parent" is one of the greatest experiences there is, period. Whether it is for Saki... I'm honestly not sure. Leaving aside the idea that marriage is a prerequisite to "becomin...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Act 3 Completed 8/20)

It would be super sweet if Hisao and Saki got married in an unofficial wedding, just the two of them, since she won't be gettin' a real one 'cause of her condition :( Too sweet, I'd say, saccharine even. For a teenager who has her mind set on early suicide to avoid the horrors of a nursing home, ge...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Act 3 Completed 8/20)

This was lovely euro, I'm at a loss for words... I've lost multiple loved ones to degenerative diseases and the image of them withering away in hospitals hooked up to an inordinate number of tubes and cables is something I will never forget. I'm a huge proponent of assisted suicide for exactly this ...

Re: Yet another one-shot thread

"That excruciating homeroom lecture from Mutou!" She does her best to impersonate his voice. "'When you have, umm, relations with someone the law of transitivity means you are having relations with everyone they have had relations with, so use a prophylactic.' I was so confused." Besides, her phant...

Re: Yamaku Book Club ( Phantom Pains: Mirror Shoujo)

Shopping trip This one actually made me think about grocery stores like Amazon Go where someone like Hanako could shop without any human interaction whatsoever. But is that a good thing? On one hand, it allows her to avoid significant - sometimes debilitating - anxiety. On the other hand, by lettin...

Re: Walking together

she implied Chariots of Fire was her favourite film so I imagined her listening to this Ah, I completely forgot about Chariots of Fire which, while less epic than Conquest of Paradise, fits much better thematically with Miki's running. Eagle eyed as ever! Fulfil is the preferred spelling in my neck...

Re: Walking together

Another nice one Scroff! Before I go crazy with the quotes, one thing that didn't sit well with me is that this felt like two disjointed stories; one with Miki & Hisao and one with the whole Ikuno drama. In fact, if you removed all of the latter, it feels like the former wouldn't lose anything. Mayb...

Well, I'll just defer to your experience then. I'm old, but not have-a-17-year-old old :)
