Have you tried Pixlr? Its fits along the lines of Gimp and Photoshop, but it does help with drawing curves like if you are using a pencil.

Re: Random KS Discussion

Just because it exists doesn't mean it should be made worse. Rather than giving up on trying to fix discrimination problems you should try to stop the discrimination. And no it doesn't create a place to get away from it. When white people were separated from black people it certainly did not help b...

Re: Random KS Discussion

Usually the giveaways are that it's a wish fulfillment self-insert, and things like non-Japanese names (especially if it's a male OC whose name matches the username of the poster). That makes sense, though I haven't noticed a lot of OC based Fanfics in a while, at least within the Fan Fiction secti...

Re: Random KS Discussion

With "Self-inserted" OC Fan fiction, what exactly would be good for it. That it's just written well? (but filled with how easy the attraction between the OC and girl are.) or something a bit more original that doesn't fit the common belief. (OC doesn't get the girl, or maybe not much on love interes...

Re: Staggering Harmony - (A2,S9 Update - 8/7/14)

Scene 9 – Unexpected Rapture. The feeling of a cool breeze against my neck urges me to open my eyes as I stare off into the distance. My fingers grasp the metal fencing in front of me, which covers the edges of the roof top of the school. Standing here was the only way I could feel any sense of rel...

Re: Random KS Discussion

That one thing made my night, haha.

I would just guess it's human nature to put people into categories.

Things that are more "socially acceptable" go by unnoticed while something that can be viewed as Abnormal is quick to be criticized.

Re: Questions to ask your character

Having had my character designed years before this was put up, I decided to use it to see what kind of person he is. Surprisingly I had some interesting insight into the inner workings of my character (which for my Fanfic's sake, I will not really talk too much about.) Though something I thought abo...

Re: In What Order Did You Complete The Routes?

I started my first time through with a fully blind play through and ended up on with Hanako

It ends up like this

Hanako>Emi>Shizune>Lilly>Rin(I had to look up how to get to her at this point)> Manly Picnic.

Re: Random KS Discussion

Its not that she was irrational, just a bit too irrational for my view of her character. I dunno if it's just me, but I have always wondered what kind of responses Lilly would have if she was not dealing with what is shown as her norm. Outside of Lilly's Path, she has Hanako as an outlet to her per...

Re: Fanfics - Known Plot vs Plot Discovery?

It does make me wonder if this either preference gives any insight on a person's view on things. I can only speak for myself, as my preference is always discovery, I've always enjoyed the journey of a story (If it came from Movies, Books or video games). This kind of reflects on my interactions with...

Fanfics - Known Plot vs Plot Discovery?

Having been around for a while, reading several fan fictions. I have wondered what others thought about these two concepts when reading stories. In some stories, from the title of the thread or just in obvious writing, you know what is going to happen (If it be relationships or basic plot events) Ot...

Wow, it's been such a long time. But I finally got all moved in to my new home and a job and all that! So now with that, I can finally get back to work on writing this story. Scene 8 – A Sudden Wilting. I can't remember a time it felt so crowded when I was at my old school, but people sure know how...

Re: Staggering Harmony - (A2,S7 Update - 4/21/14)

Hmm... I'd not have expected Hanako to play chess so badly that she would lose against someone with no skills to speak of... nor to throw a few games for his sake. That was pretty much my thought. It's hard to imagine Hanako losing to an opponent who doesn't know about pawn promotion or castling. H...

Re: Staggering Harmony - (A2,S7 Update - 4/21/14)

Scene 7 – Blossom Tending A rare moment in which I feel relaxed within the slumber I bathe in. Am I truly asleep, or did I enter this state and wish not to open my eyes? With so many restless nights, it is difficult to determine if I am truly awake or within a dream at times. The silence kept me in...
