Re: Regarding Shizune's Mother

There are many possible answers, and many possible interpretations. Based on what A22 has said when he makes posts here, he clearly had an intention in why he did it, but he sure as hell won't tell you what it is. All kinds of speculation abound, as you alluded to with your reference to previous dis...

Re: Secret Santa 2020 - Story collection

(Posted on behalf of MoashLannister/Detective Emo - he sent it to me back on January 26...) Victim: Hacksorus Prompt: Hisao is inexplicably and unreasonably excited about Christmas, and insists that the girl(s) (any combination of the main girls) get into the holiday spirit with him. “IT’S HERE!

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

With that said, I also have the strong feeling that my retelling of the story is not as much of a waste of time as people have claimed - but I’ve been really struggling to find the words to explain why. I’m still not totally there, but I think it’s something like this: For many games, there are obv...

Re: Ask!

No. Hisao is not Emi's first boyfriend. I think they mention that in the script? I think what they're trying to ask is did Emi's first boyfriend taker her virginity or did Hisao? Yes, I was talking about her virginity Well, let's first set aside that you're more or less asking the second question e...

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

I don't get it. It took you a year and 60,000 words, and you just summarized the game and said it was sentimental. Harsh, but not unjustified. It's certainly a fair point that the initial thesis of "uplifting" got kinda lost in the middle, and there's no real conclusion to tie it all together as to...

Seconding the welcome back. Even if you haven't posted here, many of us have been aware of your presence. That being said, especially if you intend on posting much of your backlog shortly, I'd recommend you read the sticky on post size and break things up. Silentcook would probably prefer you not b...

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

Well, a monumental effort, and quite thorough, though I found it a bit off-putting that you occasionally referred to it as a video. It should come as no surprise that I and others have several points of disagreement, but, at the same time, why have it any other way? I could go into detail about spec...

In the hopes of not taking forever to leave my comments like I did last year, let's comment on the current crop now, and move forward on more as they come.

Inside, a small collection of miniature cassettes - outdated even when they were new, but inexpensive and available.The memories all came flooding back. Tape 1, S...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20201116 LOL Quartet)

This feels like a 4-part lecture in how to do "lolrandom" right. "lawl", written by the inimitable A22, has a general silliness, but remains consistent in thematic imagery and more closely resembles an overly tortured metaphor. "That's Totally Cheating" is a slight step down, going for a somewhat gr...

Re: A Chiasmus Through the Night – A Late, Late, S9 for Craftyatom.

As always, your prose is lovely. But what bothered me was more structural. Specifically, we don't get much of anything about present-day Hisao, or the nature of his relationship with his chosen girl. Nothing about how they got together, the trials they faced, anything. All we get is allusions to His...

7:00? I know that holiday fantasies are a common element, but the idea that the kids would let him sleep in that late is pretty far-fetched.
