Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

So as I explored the 'why not so great' question, I started writing from her perspective more, and also from those of her family members. I became more and more certain that Jigoro and Hideaki, while being just a little peculiar, were also hamming it up in the Japanese tradition of hazing the new p...

Re: Shizune's "Good" Ending -- Sad or Happy?

Ah, this discussion again. Always fun. From my most recent read, I am currently of the opinion that Shizune's route "ends" with "The Summit". The next three scenes are epilogue - tying up the loose ends, reaching conclusions, etc. Also, you're missing a key detail with even presenting the idea of "...

The rare occasion on which I get to do the 'incongruous' thing to our dedicated proof-reader. :wink:

That said, I've always wondered exactly what opportunities and whose opportunities were lost, in Silentcook's mind.

I truly appreciate your work ("enjoy" isn't the right word, given its nature) and want to send you heartfelt thanks. “Nat, you’ve not called me that for ages. Aww. Shit.” Her tears are hot, huge drops. They scald my heart. “Aww. She’s not with me anym… aww… come on Miki, come on. Ahhh, Nat. Ahhh…” ...

When the dark years came, unexpected leaders arose, and were entangled with unexpected events. The Girl From The Convent (2044) I had first met Chiaki Hasegawa at the office of an old friend who was her boss. Poor Misaki , I had said to myself that day, this is the kind of person who will win every...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20180514 'Scar-Crossed Lovers')

I'm ready to become depressed: who would actually prefer bad stories over good ones? Yes subjectivity, one man's trash, yadda yadda etcetera, but still. Maybe it's not so much a preference for bad stories over good, but a preference for talking about bad stories. (Some people prefer trashing bad th...

Re: Consolidated Calendar of Events

This is not an authoritative and canonical organisation of events, because such a thing is impossible. This is merely a "best attempt" to give all the events a specific day of occurrence while contradicting canon as little as possible. This is excellent, and as authoritative as it gets. Thanks very...

Re: Consolidated Calendar of Events

You put a lot of hardwork and effort into this. But you don't start with Hisao's heart attack, so I'm going to dock points. No perfect score for you. Hisao's heart attack likely happened around Sunday 25 Feb 2007. It was the coldest day in Japan that year; in fact, it was the only day in Yokohama (...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (20180514 'Scar-Crossed Lovers')

I'd like to get some more interaction here. Before I post the next story, what kind of story do you WANT to talk about? Short or long? OC based or main character based? A Good story or a bad one? Finished or unfinished? Standard slice or life? Romance? Humor? My preference would be for 'long enough...
