Re: _

Kind of disappointed to see this abandoned so soon, but I can see your reasoning. You don't feel ready to write a long project like this yet. That's perfectly fine, try one-shots until you are more confident in your abilities, it's a big project writing a route or epilogue with multiple chapters. H...

Re: Ask!

Do you have any interest in interactive fiction outside the domain of VNs? It was (and to some extent, remains) a hobby horse of mine. I even wrote a good section of my Master's dissertation on the subject, which, in case you are curious, turned out to be academic suicide. Would you be comfortable ...
