Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#56—'Comfort') (X)

It always seemed to me that you have a special affection for Shizune and Kenji, I bet you didn't have to think twice about which pairing to choose. I found this heart-warming but the thought of a Shizune-Kenji alliance running amok after graduation is more than a little scary... I have some degree ...

Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#56—'Comfort') (X)

This one's written as one of the random pairings (1 of 5) issued to me anonymously. It was fun. Not sorry. Comfort No, I'll not, carrion comfort, Despair, not feast on thee; Not untwist—slack they may be—these last strands of man In me ór, most weary, cry I can no more . I can; Can something, hope,...

Re: (WIP - Updated 3/5/2019) Pilgrimage - A Subversion of Fate [Divergent Story - Hisao w/o Heart Attack]

I don't really see the problem with moving in together that soon, and proposing after almost two years of being in a relationship does not seem too unusual either. I suppose it was more the age they got married that seemed odd to me, since getting married at 19, while not unheard of, is unusual. Th...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20190218 KS Pentameter)

The technical use of English-language iambic pentameter is fine, but the rigid devotion to it makes the whole thing seem like a stilted exercise in ingenious formality. I suspect that wasn't the point, though. It made for a good joke, and Mirage must have enjoyed doing it. On a side note, anyone els...

Re: Lighting Electric Candles (Rin)

That's lovely. It's one of those things a person might feel they should've tried to write, but someone already wrote it and the colours are right, so that's good.

Re: Signs (Very Late S9 Submission)

That's an excellent piece. Different ways of looking at the two characters, without making them OOC. Well done, Scratch!

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#55—'Clubbing') (S9)

A fic that only Brythain could write. Whenever I read one, I'm reminded that I need to eventually get around to reading *After the Dream* in its entirety. As it is, it's Sci-Fi Christmas Katawas. What's not to like? Thank you very much, ProfA! Dreaming that world entire is something I would very mu...

Re: Reunions (S9 Submission)

So we know about Shizune and Rin and his wife (whom we can't identify yet)... how mysterious! Quite atmospheric, but leaves you wanting more. :)

Ah okay, for me it looked like some particularly weird kind of Russian...
Some of these are really weird indeed, many from SF.
Wikipedia has a good summary of some existing variants here.

Re: Yamaku's Swimming Pool

It's going to have water. Lots of it. Jokes aside, your guess is as good as ours. I don't think any of the devs ever gave any kind of serious thought to a throwaway line from the novel like that. I would guess it's something that could be used for hydrotherapy as well, maybe a typical Olympic-sized...

Re: Alt Dreams [One-Shots] (#55—'Clubbing') (S9)

Interesting and confusing... That one guy/girl talks with an accent even in his/her internal monologue? Even when it's told by a narrator sometimes? I took that one from real life. Sometimes people who don't define their male/female binary gender use 'ze' for he/she, 'zeir' for 'him/her', or some s...
