Re: Developments (Post-Lilly Neutral End) - Interlude 4 up 8

*ahem* If I may step in with a tidbit of evidence found over in Leaty's Mean Time to Breakdown thread, I hope that you'll like the next update. This, I do not question. Now, will your update get posted before my next chapter? Knowing whose PoV it will be, you might want to make sure it does... :wink...

Re: Random KS Discussion

I like to see how many self-insert fanfics I can find where the OC is transferred from America or the UK to Japan for no real reason, and then reimagine these romances with an appalling language barrier I've never got that. The closest school that will be able to take care of you is six thousand mi...

Re: 'Queens of the Land'

I love this example of early KS Satou/Hakamichi/Mikado. Starting to read the early short pieces has really given me an appreciation for what might have been or not. :D Agreed 100%. I love when old pieces get dragged up to the front page, especially stuff the devs wrote. Even if Aura's stuff is 50/5...

Re: The Bells of Life-Kirino Kage (OC)

All right, since you're about four chapters in on this, I'll waive my statute of limitations regarding commenting on new fanfiction before I can get any sort of decent feel for what the story's going to look like. I suppose I should start with what throws me the most: Your egregious misuse of "your/...

Re: Developments (Post-Lilly Neutral End) - Interlude 4 up 8

Interesting, *ahem*, developments to be found in the past few chapters. I often abhor these kinds of situations, simply because the easiest (and certainly most hackneyed) way of resolving them is to leave one or more characters holding the idiot ball. These are problems that blow up because of a sim...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Now Reading: Panda's Stuff)

I'll echo Mahorfeus' thoughts on this. As I was reading, a paraphrase of the witch's words from "Last Midnight" from Into the Woods came to mind: it's not good, it's not bad, it's just nice. It's unremarkable fluffy filler, but there's very much a place for that type of thing when one is in a certa...

Re: Kagami Pseudo-Route [Updated 5/8]

Loved the route, just finished reading it in its entirety within one sitting(although I may be late to the draw). I started reading this route last year before all the current chapters were posted and stopped at around chapter 15 was it? I can't quite remember, but I took it up late last night and ...

All of this.

Your formatting makes my eyes bleed, but I suppose in a situation like this there's probably not many better ways of doing it. Good chapter.

Re: A Birthday Wish (Saki/Rika) [Complete]

That ending was like something out of a cheesy sitcom. I love it. One small criticism though, when Saki is worried about Rika's heart, she calls her Rika-chan. Personally, I don't think honorifics work in English prose, with exceptions such as Misha's nickname quirk. The hikikomori thing too, it ju...

*clap clap clap* I love it, uplifting ending despite the feels in the middle. Like a molten lava chocolate cake. *nods* Thank you! I didn't want this to end on such a melancholy note, especially after the first two chapters really only had hints regarding what was to come in the third. Glad you enj...

Last installment! Sorry it took so long. Hope you enjoy! Part 3: I’m not sure how long I’ve been asleep when a loud sound from the hallway jolts me into consciousness. I sit upright in my bed; it’s something I’d marvel at in any other situation – my muscles don’t really allow that sort of thing fre...

Re: Sakura—The Kenji Saga (Part 1-5a up 20140716)

Hoo boy. Doesn't this pack quite the emotional wallop. It's interesting to see one's own character used to illustrate themes you'd have never even considered on your own. Especially one with such gravitas as the persistence/illusion of memory when compared to the now. It's funny that she should show...

Re: Have Your Parents ever Confronted You about Katawa Shouj

I'm sure my fiancee knows I'm on the forums pretty regularly, but she's never asked. We've talked about VNs before (mostly just discussions about the validity of the format), but never KS specifically. Not necessarily because I'm trying to hide it, I just don't think she'd be interested. It's just n...
