Re: Flowers Before the Fireflies - A Miki Pseudo-route (Updated 1/8/21)

...and I would feel bad to throw this one at them after a year of radio silence. Just throw away, but it seems fine even without much editing this time :-) Nice build up to the twist and nice aftermath as well. One of the best chapters so far I'd say. Glad to see this story continue, and I hope you...

Re: FluffandCrunch Story Archive

Well, I can certainly say your writing has improved a lot since then :-)

Also I think it's the only (potential?) Hanako x Kenji pairing outside of Katawa Kijo I remember...

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

So, I spent most of last night and some of today reading this after someone posted the link on the discord. First of all, thank you for your effort. I think this has to be the most detailed review dissertation about KS I've read over the yeas, and Ive read quite a few. Of course with more than 60K w...

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

Wow, that was one heck of a prompt. I can definitely see how one could be tempted to "overwrite" it. The final product is very concise. The story was short, but it didn't feel as if it was missing anything. You could even have left out the last part, but it fits in very well. Just bad luck that the ...

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

I'll admit to never having read Catharsis, as far as I can remember - I'll have to give it a look. But yeah, it's rare that I write a story without a happy ending - Feurox and I are constantly at war with each other over it :P I'm strongly on your side on this one :-) Almost all of my stories have ...

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

Reading your annual Secret Santa pieces really makes me wish they weren't the only fics you've written here in ages... As I've said before the most problematic step for me is always coming up with an idea, and this helps me skip that step. If there are any stories left open - and so far there seem ...

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

This one-off has the potential to be its own story, but I think what you have written is just fine as a standalone story. The story has played all of its cards and revealed all of its surprises in a way that didn't feel to hammy or melodramatic. Thanks! I don't plan to continue this scenario (unles...

Spinocerebellar Ataxia

It seems a cure for Saki's condition might not be too far off. I just saw a report on a successful treatment of an infant suffering from Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 1 The treatment seems to be effective after only one injection - though that one injection is priced at a ridiculous 2,1 million $.

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

Duh, I knew I forgot something... That's what I get for writing all the comments in the draft and then just copy-pasting.

Thanks to Feurox for helping iron out some chinks prior to release!

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

So, since no one else seems to want to go first, here’s my contribution to this year’s Secret Santa: Marry Christmas Brythain! As always the prompt as well as my author’s notes will be at the end of the story. Christmas at Rock Bottom Rika brought her old Toyota to a stop in front of the venue and r...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20201207 The Ooe Way—A Natsume Fic)

It's a fun read, but Naomi and Natsume's hyperness is a bit forced in some places... Also I agree with Blasphemy that writing articles about new students would be quite awkward for the student in question. All in all this version of Natsume is quite different from... basically all other stories she ...

Re: Mirror Image - A Rika Pseudo-Route

Okay, so a few comments: (Takes Place after Short Sharp Shock - ...) Rather than a whole explanatory paragraph try to include that information in the story, e.g. Starting the story with "After the pigtailed girl has vanished around the corner I'm left with Shizune and Misha in the hallway..." That w...

Re: Where is my Mind? - A Kenji One-Shot

Hello and welcome to the forums! First - or rather second considering the welcome - and most importantly tenses are nothing to perish over. That said there are in fact numerous sentences and paragraphs where you slip from present into past tense or use past perfect where present perfect would belong...

Seasonal Greatings everyone! It's time for the annual Secret Santa ! The prompts have been sent out, so I'm opening the collection thread in case some submissions come in early. So far there are 23 participants. If you haven't written in your participation yet - some elves told me that the Prof is s...
