Re: Making a VN out of Katawa shoujo fanfics!

There's also a fairly large grey area that I would think Aura and/or the other developers would have to define. I understand completely about not using anything original to the game such as sprites, music, BGs, etc. The grey area comes in with the first part of what Aura said, about trying to make i...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Updated 12/9)

Gah, I hate multiquoting on BB boards. http://i.imgur.com/CpbnsCB.gif I knew you'd get a kick out of that line :lol: Should be hyphenated as "raven-colored," but the phrasing is awkward and best changed entirely. I personally recommend "A girl with short, raven hair..." 'Raven' and 'sable' are adjec...

Re: Limits of Fanfiction - What is appropriate?

Now, that gets into... is Missing Stars (which was even originally titled Mentaru Shoujo , and it's set in a school for the mentally ill in Austria) a KS fanfic? If so, then you might as well call Katawa Shoujo merely good fanfiction of Raita's concept. :lol: There's a pretty big difference between...

Re: Limits of Fanfiction - What is appropriate?

For me, it depends. At what point does it remain fanfiction or become its own story with nearly nothing to do with the original inspiration besides character names? I've read and wrote fanfiction under different pseudonyms for years. For me you have to retain either the original setting, the persona...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Updated 12/9)

Wow, I had no idea reaction to that other route was that...strong. Thanks for the kind words all, and the grammar corrections. Some of them are so obvious that I miss them when proofreading. Thanks for the feedback as well. I'll do my best to do the character justice, and I hope she came across well...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Updated 12/9)

I remember getting reamed in English class if I ever used the phrase "someone else and me ," always being told that the proper phrasing was "someone else and I " Actually it depends on the context. If "someone else and me" is not the subject but the object of a sentence then it is correct. Lilly, M...

I'll go back and make some quick edits now with some more thorough ones after I get home tomorrow night. I remember getting reamed in English class if I ever used the phrase "someone else and me ," always being told that the proper phrasing was "someone else and I " I honestly had no idea that Cold ...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Updated 12/9)

When we leave the art room I no longer hear any arguments coming from my classroom, so we turn towards the center of the building. This time however, Saki heads in the direction of the elevator instead of the stairs. She notices the look of puzzlement on my face. “Remember when I told you that if th...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route

EDIT: Split into two posts to make it more manageable and more in line with the flow of the forums. Was able to recover it from the hard drive and do some editing to it :) Longer than the first chapter, hope you like it. This takes place in the middle of Cold War. I posted a rough draft of this for ...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route

That's some terrible luck, don't you think? I will remain patient. I'm used to having horrible luck. I'll price out a new motherboard tomorrow vs the cost of a SATA enclosure as there are some rather time-sensitive things on that drive :( Newegg is pretty fast with their returns, but I can't wait a...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route

Bad news. Second chapter is done (and quite long) but while playing a game last night to kill some time between finishing it and editing it, my comp froze. Long story short, the motherboard in the new computer I just built two weeks ago is bad. I've already sent it off to newegg for a replacement, b...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route

I meant to say this when you first posted the opening chapter, but I feel like I can already get an intuitive sense of Saki's character just from that little bit. I will be awaiting the next chapter. In that aspect, once again, the Dramatica software has been incredible. It asks and helps define as...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route

the only question i would have for you is--what drives your character of saki? this is something you should really have in mind, and if you've really planned it out for months, it should be as concrete as a cinder-block. for now, i think you're doing just fine. just be careful to keep a character l...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route

Thanks for the encouragement :) I'm writing some other scenes right now, but the next linear one after this should be finished in a few days. I'm getting crushed at work right now and have little time for writing, but it will get very slow after Christmas. I've already had more than one person ask m...
