Re: The "feels" bazaar.

On a different topic, something that always gets me is that durned stuffed cat from Shizune's route. First, Hisao wins one for Shizune but not for Misha. I got the immediate feeling that was the story of Misha's life: No prize for you, just be happy about someone else getting the prize. Second, it's...

Re: The "feels" bazaar.

I just thought of this now, thanks to the game I've been playing. What if, as a major difference in Hanako's story, Lilly openly showed interest in Hisao, yet he still chooses Hanako over Lilly? I wonder what that would do for Hanako's self confidence. That could get brutal. I can imagine that Hana...

Re: What do you think of Nomiya?

My take on Jigoro: everything that we see is him trying to compensate for a deep cavernous insecurity. Basically I feel sorry for him, and anybody that has to depend on him at all. I kept on wanting Hisao to challenge him to a fight. "You dissing my vest? YOU DISSING MY VEST? That's it mofo that ka...

Re: The "feels" bazaar.

About Hanako and cynicism/misanthropy: Remember she's seen humanity at close it worst: children bullying another precisely because she is vulnerable. She's got a whole lot to be angry about in her life. She's also an intelligent, avid reader so I could she her developing into a massively entertainin...

Re: The "feels" bazaar.

I've seen little bits and pieces of Hanako's bad end, and believe me, that conviction only grew stronger. I follow what I feel is being said to my soul, over any human logic. Cause quite frankly, human logic is extremely shortsighted. Especially when it comes to dealing with another person. I live ...

Re: What do you think of Nomiya?

My take on Nomiya is that with Rin he is working with a genuinely great talent, and he wants to do absolutely what's best for her. As other commenters have remarked on, her grades probably aren't the best, so her only ticket to getting into a major arts program is to establish a reputation through e...

Re: The "feels" bazaar.

I didn't cry but I came close, and I can't bring myself to even see her neutral or bad endings. I just can't do it, I'd rather just move onto another route. You learn a lot a lot about the girl's stories in the bad/neutral endings, including thinking about why the choices bring about a bad/neutral ...

Re: Katawa Shoujo.

It's pretty amusing to me how commonly Emi ends up everyone's first heroine. I ended up going her route last. (Never did like running… But Emi herself made it worthwhile!) People usually assume running is the smart option for Hisao. :lol: When I first got to that point in the game, I thought "Tryin...

Re: Yamaku's Swimming Pool

So parents concerned about the absence of a life guard would probably complain to the school a lot, but wouldn't file a lawsuit unless somebody drowned. It might be that after a drowning there is no lawsuit, but instead after the school has lost honor by failing to protect the children the vast maj...

Re: Ask!

Seeing that Yuuko's still aiming to get into university, she's probably only about 2 to 3 years older than the main cast, most likely. (since most students are 18 or 19 by the time they graduate high school) I'd be surprised if Yuuko spent like 7 years trying to get into a university. She could be ...

Re: Yamaku's Swimming Pool

Well lets see, how about during the day, the pool is staffed by aquatic therapists who're there to work with students. After school there are student volunteers who serve as lifeguards. Then of course after cerfew the buildings locked up. It makes a ton of sense for Yamaku to have an aquatic therap...

Re: Yamaku's Swimming Pool

Yamaku is very conscious of the student's well-being: note the full-time nursing staff and extensive rules about running in the hallways. Teenagers can do very stupid things [surprise!]. I've known two diabetics pretty well; they both had multiple incidences of downing a pint of ice cream and then p...

Blind Artist

I actually knew a blind artist a few years back. She worked in colored pencils, making some pretty interesting semi-abstract work. She had lost her eyes when she was seven, so she still had memories of what colors were and how things looked, but still the images were essentially from inside. The way...

Re: Limits of Fanfiction - What is appropriate?

Speaking of which (i.e.,"don't take this too seriously") how did this zombie stuff derail a really interesting thread about the uses and value of fanfic? To try to put this back on the rails: My current thinking is that in order to be worth doing, fan fiction has to say something interesting about t...
