Re: Precious Friendships (Shizune BE, Sisterhood plot) [Ch48 Updated 19 Mar 2021: More Iwa-chan!!]

That Japanese bit in the middle was really jarring - especially since the whole of the story is supposed to be in Japanese...
A bit as if suddenly learning that up to this point they all were speaking English^^°

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20210308 Ungraceful Reunion)

Well, according to the author they had two more chapters "almost complete and ready for posting"...

I remember liking that one a lot. Shame that it hasn't updated in so long.

Re: God's Gift to Yamaku - An OC-centric Pseudo-Route

Read this article a few years back, and it seems to be pertinent to this story.

Usually you would surgically remove something like that - apparently health insurance paid for it even in the US!

Re: Running Away To You (A Post Lilly-Neutral Story) (Updated 14/2/21)

After all, she’s the one who left him without letting him weigh in on the matter, or even the opportunity to say a proper goodbye, from the looks of things. At least Lilly granted me that much, even if it did little to ease the feeling of abandonment. Not sure where Hisao got that from. The convers...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20210215 You And I Both)

Not sure if I would classify the ending of A Runner's Afternoon as "downer" or a gut punch. Hisao never gives the impression of being particularly unhappy with his life, even if we don't learn much about his social life. I'd give higher odds of Hanako being dissatisfied with her position in life, or...

Re: God's Gift to Yamaku - An OC-centric Psuedo-Route

Hello and welcome! The prologue feels a bit choppy and probably could have done with a bit more proofreading, for example: I find my sleep troubled, as it usually does when I forget as it usually *is* I bare the pain bear She looked to be in her mid-20s *looks* or better *seems* As soon as before no...

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

I agree it was a very nice story - if a bit saccharine... When reading this Secret Santa Submissions I always think about what I would have done if that prompt had reached me. Most of the time I feel thankful that it didn't :-) This time I almost immediately had a picture in my mind of Hisao organiz...

Re: Precious Friendships (Shizune BE, Sisterhood plot) [Ch44 Updated 5 Feb 2021: Cousin Collaboration?]

The first part of chapter 43 felt like a lot of people chaotically talking over one another. If you were going for that, congratulations, you succeeded. Problem is, in real life when people do that I simply tune them out, and that's exactly what I did here... As a renounced university in Japan, I th...

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: 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 ...
