Re: Tips for fanfiction writers (that means YOU)

That's the problem with the top-down approach, I suppose. But it's still not entirely impossible to do. I'm writing a manga/fanfic, (A3), the main character, his partner, their team, (7 people) These are the people you need to flesh out in greater detail. Or the 5-10 main characters you mentioned, I...

Re: Tips for fanfiction writers (that means YOU)

That explains why my current fanfic is going so poorly, I have like 10-15 chars atm and it looks like I need another 30-40 and I'm having trouble just managing the few I have already ;-; well boo, going to be a rough write. I doubt you really need or actually want to use 40-55 characters at once. A...

Re: Misha Route Collection

I guess I could have put that better. The maintainer would not be obliged to include all fics - it would be also a valid procedure if (s)he only included fics that were sent to him/her by others. It would be largely up to the maintainer how much "independent research" (s)he'd want to put into the wh...

Re: Misha Route Collection

The authors would be able to help the maintainer by submitting information about their fics if they are not yet included, yes. But the general goal of the thread would be to contain as many KS fics as possible, since any quality considerations may lead to unnecessary drama as Silentcook noted, and t...

Re: Misha Route Collection

So, if I may summarize what seems realistic given the above considerations: - ONE compendium thread with ONE maintainer, containing (almost) ALL fics here and perhaps elsewhere as well. It would provide categories that would make stuff easier to find, and/or provide a sort of categorization that is ...

Re: Misha Route Collection

Like Silentcook said, using separate accounts which can potentially be shared is risky. I'd say it'd be more straightforward if the "librarian" would use their own account for the job. Should the need arise to change maintainers, the thread could be locked/deleted and the contents of the "library po...

Re: Misha Route Collection

Since the list would most likely only be the first post of the thread, people could recommend stories to be added right there. Perhaps a good rule for inclusion would be that a thread opener can never recommend his/her own thread, and the user recommending a story would need to have made 10 posts in...

Re: Misha Route Collection

Well, I can see some positive and some negative aspects to this idea. Pros: - Currently many great fics are hard to find here, since they are buried somewhere in the Nth page of the section, or exist in some obscure form, for instance on Pastebin. I wouldn't have found a couple of the best stories I...

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (New Chapter 8/7)

Regardless of whether Misha has an actual disability or not, it can be said for a fact that her potential disability is not the reason she is at Yamaku. Misha told Hisao that she learns sign language and has been offered a discount in school fees because of it - but this is certainly not the only re...

In Central Europe (Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, etc.), doors like that are basically unheard of.

Re: For Want of a Nail - Misha Route (New Chapter 8/7)

I may be way overthinking this, but Fool's Mate is basically impossible to do unless you're trying lose like that. I wonder if Misha is trying to lose for whatever reason... It could be as simple as she thought she would win battleship and wanted to go to a 3rd game. Or this implication wasn't inte...

Re: Misha route?

I sort of agree that Shizune's route can be considered to be Misha's as well, to an extent. Not because you can end up with her (you can't, not counting fanfics like mine) but because Misha's backstory and personal issues play a crucial part in the plot; in my opinion her presence is more significan...

Re: A pseudo-pseudo Suzu route (completed)

Suzu demanded that I read, and so I did. I managed to get the good route again. My impressions of Act 4 were mixed overall, but I think it was nonetheless superior to Act 3; most of the things I'd have wanted to bring up had been said by others already, so I won't get into those again. I did realize...

Re: Redshift - Rika Route [7/13]

I was completely serious, thanks, I really never heard of this one. :) It just feels strange because "up" is apparently used as a verb here.
