Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 3/16!)

Time for the usual comment recap! Before we get into that though, some housekeeping. The sharp-eyed amongst you will notice a Moments in Hindsight section in the Table of Contents (that and I've added an Act IV heading - Act IV will be the final act of TBoH). Moments in Hindsight is going to be for ...

Act 3, Chapter 1 - The Morning After, Interrupted

By the time my eyes open, I realize two things. One, it’s morning - the light is coming in through the curtains. I usually don’t sleep well due to my heart medications, but I slept like a baby last night. Two, I’m in a bed that’s not my own, and I’m not alone. Memories come flooding back - a blonde ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Happy Anniversary, KS!)

On the Fifth Anniversary of Katawa Shoujo: it's the reason we're all here in the first place. In a sense, the only 'book' worth discussing at such a time is all of KS and the fanfics it's spawned . What are the things that made you want to write your own? I'm really only qualified to answer this la...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 2/22!)

It's been a long time - over a year - for a variety of reasons. School, work, a general sense of depression in my life, and worry that I wouldn't be able to finish what I started. I have high standards for my writing, and my first couple of attempts at starting Act 3 went...poorly, to the say the le...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 2/22!)

First and foremost, THANK YOU ALL for the comments. I am greatly appreciative. I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that this is now easily the longest creative work I've ever written, and is probably coming up on the fifty page honors thesis I wrote to graduate from university. It's been a challenge, ...

Act 2, Chapter 7 - Drinks (After Dinner)

So this took a long time to write. A very long time. It clocks in at around 4000 words, and I probably wrote three times that which isn't seeing the light of day because it got edited or overwritten or scrapped out of existence. This is probably the most important chapter in the entire story, and so...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 2/4!)

Thank you for the feedback, everyone! Edits are made 2-7 will likely be up Tuesday; I want to take the time to refine it and make sure it shines - it is the most important chapter so far and all. Once it's up, I'll probably take some opinions on possible bonus scenes, and when/if they should be writ...

Act 2, Chapter 6 - Drinks (With Dinner)

This is horribly overdue, and for that I apologize. The only good news is 2-7 is almost finished, so you won't have to wait anywhere near as long. I found this very difficult to write, honestly - this and 2-7 have been the hardest parts of the story by far - probably because they're where the magici...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 1/18!)

Now this is turning into an enjoyable read. Clicked on it on a whim late last night and got really into it. Hisao comes across as is a very-Shizune-route-Hisao, with a bit more logic and determination in him, with a dash of the depression that we know he's susceptible to. Was glad to see some obvio...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 1/18!)

Once again, I can't stop thinking about what Hisao did to Shizune. Great chapter! Good news - you're two chapters away from finding out! It seems Misha was more involved than I previously thought but apart from the serious moments, an incredibly fun encounter! I can't wait to how Hisao's (not) date...

Re: Random KS Discussion

Starting a long overdue replaythrough of the game. I don't know if it's the best or even most emotional song in the game, but "Caged Heart" completely destroys me every time I hear it. It's this combination of eerie, foreboding, and sad that makes it the musical equivalent of a car crash to me - I c...

Act 2, Chapter 5 - Drinks (Before Dinner)

As I step off the bus, I find myself looking around the city in wonder. For better or worse, I didn’t spend all that much time here during my time at Yamaku. Most of it was spent in the Shanghai or Student Council room. I make a mental note to actually explore the place when I have time. Right now, ...

Re: The Benefit of Hindsight (updated 1/6!)

First and foremost, thank you for all of the comments! Pleased to have a following here after all those months. :) Work on 2.5 has begun. Expect it probably by the end of the weekend. Generally, I'm going to be aiming for a chapter a week or so, which should be sustainable until this story is comple...

Act 2, Chapter 4 - Dial "H" for Help

As promised, Act 2, Chapter 4! I'll be gone for a week on vacation with no writing time, and then it's likely to take a bit longer after that until I get something up - Chapters 5, 6, and 7 of Act 2 are all important and likely to be lengthy, so just a heads up on that front. Enjoy! ----------------...

Holy shit it lives. Hang on while I sit down to read this properly. It's back! I enjoy this fic a lot, but I hate it at the same time. I just want everyone to be happy why can't everyone be happy. :lol: Damn, am I glad to see this story come back. Good to see ya, Pun. Nice work, of course. Thank yo...
