Re: Ask!

I had a lot of questions, but two years and 233 pages of Q&A have answered most of them. Except… 1. Did any of you have specific 'voices' in your head when scripting the various main characters? This includes Shizune, because while she's mute, I'd guess it might be hard to think of things for her to...

Re: After the Dream (Post-Yamaku One-Shot)

...Yes, all of it. If you feel the need to provide this as a footnote to your writing, the footnote is as large as the piece, which suggests that you should have made the piece rather longer. If you don't, then why are you explaining to the reader what should be taken away from the piece of writing...

Re: Katawa Kijo

I had just got on this forum this year when the piece appeared on the Book Club thread. I am glad that you wrote it, Mirage. It has in it potential for more than a second life, and stands well on its own. I think it suffers from pacing, but that's because the somewhat more leisurely canonical pace i...

Re: After the Dream (Post-Yamaku One-Shot)

Not sure what you are trying to do here. The first post has almost no context, and the writing is quite dreamy. After reading it a few time's I'm guessing it's Emi written from the third person? But the way its written reads like Rin dialogue. I think the part with the conversation is between Rin a...

I'm happy with leaving it to the president. I'll abide by that.

Reserved (used to contain spoilers)

I used to have some path notes here, but they actually distracted people. So this slot is reserved for future expansion now. :)

Re: Yamaku Book Club

I'm a bit of an empiricist… so one thing perhaps we can try to do is look at existing pieces and see what the shortest piece is that we'd really consider for a book discussion, and why that is so. So I started with the obvious: themocaw's 2400 words from a path never written. Based on the metrics I ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club

What would be the minimum amount of completion before a work should/qualify for discussion? I think that's a great question when turned around a little. 'How complete is this work?' is a question even for a formally complete work. Since this has been called a 'Book Club', I suggest that a collectio...

Re: Yamaku Book Club

@brythain: Not going to comment on anything content-related yet, but one thing that it's probably good to keep in mind when reading the story: When it was written only Act 1 was out, so no science club and no extra-lessons for Misha - and of course no Lilly and Shizune being cousins. Thanks very mu...

Ooops. Sorry. Thought I was late to the party, actually. Hard to remain situationally aware when under the KS influence. :)

Re: Yamaku Book Club

This has been my first time reading Katawa Kijo. It's very smoothly crafted in its present form; the plot is clear, nicely linear, and does not dig too deeply into the psychological matrix of KS. This is a strength for this kind of story; it can be seen as a weakness, but only if you're looking for ...

After The Dream—MAIN INDEX (Kenji Bk6 complete 20190527)

LATEST (27 May 2019): Book 6 of Sakura: The Kenji Saga is concluded here . ===== This post contains the main index for my ' After the Dream ' post-Lilly-neutral-end mosaic. The title of the mosaic comes from a phrase coined (I think) by Rikabro—'the dream of Yamaku'. The mosaic begins near the end ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club

How the hell did you read 440,000 words in 8 hours? Not being coy or anything, but that's about 50,000 words an hour, a thousand words (four pages) every ten minutes. It was 4 am over here when I was done. I slept badly and had to go for a full-body massage the next day because I was so stiff. Amaz...

Re: Yamaku Book Club

No, because there's absolutely no way anyone could ever possibly finish Tomorrow's Doom in three days, at least not without completely cutting themselves off from life. I might be biased in that regard... I finished it in a bit under 8 hours excluding breaks, about the time required for LotR. Yes, ...
