Re: Shizune Arc (misha, jigoro)

For story purposes, I'm more interested in how Shizune, deprived of a major stereo-perceptive sense, copes with it. Her eyesight and sense of touch and vibration must be very important to her. I've lived life with most of the usual perceptions, so I'm not in the best position for someone aspiring to...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Shizune (Complete

Maybe things will make more sense with the context of the other parts, but, standing on its own, this is easily one of the most chilling, soulless incarnations of Shizune I've encountered. (edited) I think of her as showing slightly sociopathic, even psychopathic behaviour. But she's not a psychopa...

Pallas Shizune! Someone should do a visual image of that. :)

This is the seventh and last part of Shizune's main arc in 'After the Dream'. I would like to write more Shizune, but this completes my framework. Should you wish to fill in the blanks in the narrative, there are links in my sig below that will take you to the other arcs. Thanks! Shizune 7: Complet...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Lilly2 up 2014030

Needless to say, I didn't read all the way through, and I'm quite disappointed that the same author who treated Shizune with such care has made me even less accepting of Lilly than I had already been. I see there's a second part now... should I bother? Only if you want to. I'm in a way rather glad ...

This is the second part of Lilly's arc in 'After the Dream', my post-Lilly-neutral-end mosaic. Lilly 2: Transform (2008) One of the lovely things about living in a large home in the country is the fact that you can do what you want without being frequently disturbed. The long blonde girl in the eve...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Lilly1 up 2014030

Heh, I had just re-read yours because of your latest chapter, and I was wondering what on earth could have kept Lilly away until Hisao's death... My guess is that, much like with national debts and yakuza loans, the interest payments on awkwardness compound to the point to where repayment becomes i...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Lilly1 up 2014030

For what it's worth, Katawa Shoujo is set in 2007, and Lilly turned 18 in February, before Hanako turned 18 during the VN. That means she was born in 1989. My leading theory is that her parents manipulated things to pass her off as developmentally disabled, to delay her entry into school. (Normally...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Lilly1 up 2014030

Heh...interesting to read this just as I'm bringing Lilly back to Yamaku in my own post-neutral-end fic. A quick note: I've always found it odd for someone who's trying to discover an artist to choose, as their first taste of their work, a piece that's entirely made up of their interpretations of o...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Shizune6 up 20140

Another enjoyable vignette. That last line was a tad creepy, but understandably and believably creepy, so well done :) . *grin* I happen to think that Shizune is actually the most stable of the entire bunch of characters. But she does have a little 'creepy' in her that she herself doesn't see… and ...

Re: After the Dream (PostLilly NeutralEnd) Shizune6 up 20140

If they're as good as these ones, we're in for a treat (I even enjoyed the Jigoro bit, and I never enjoy scenes with him in them), but I hope they're not all sad ^_^. Thanks for the compliment! Here I must confess that I wanted Jigoro to become something a bit more than douchebag comic relief, and ...

Neat story, but seriously: What the hell happened to Emi & Rin? I don't think that the resolution was very clear.
It ain't over yet… :)

This is the sixth part of Shizune's arc in 'After the Dream', my post-Lilly-neutral-end mosaic. I've made very minor edits to previous sections. Enjoy! Shizune 6: Contest (2030) This has been a year of great change, she reflects. She feels as if she is becoming whole again. It is a quarter-century ...
