Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

So far the fic is about about 71,500 words (not including Bantamweights,) and the last Saturday update's looking to be about 6-8k words, so we'll probably be in the neighborhood of 100k at the end. Maybe less. Hopefully not more.

I don't owe you a reason. I would appreciate it if you would stop posting in this thread.

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

It's not something we've really talked about, but I do wonder if Emi was able to piece it together, even without having a whole lot of context. There's evidence in the visual novel to suggest she's especially sensitive to that kind of thing... But she doesn't make any comments to Hisao about the enc...

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

It bears mentioning that I'm still learning as an author—if people think the homoromantic subtext was way too subdued, I'm more than willing to entertain any sort of constructive advice regarding how I could have made it more evident. Honestly, though, I think I've kind of decided my life experience...

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

my belief (prior to this, anyway) was that she may have never allowed herself come to that conclusion if it weren't for the events of MTtB scene four - actually, looking at the relevant bit, that's also where I really noticed heteronormative thought patterns) - basically, I guess I was thinking she...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

I don't know what the heck I just read, but it was sweet, in a weird way. I'm very curious as to how you arrived at this idea. My bestie is getting carpal tunnel in her wrists, and I have a silly sense of humor. (no idea what IA stands for) Intersex and Asexual. Well, I'd classify Techi Muyo as "ha...

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

To be honest, I never picked up on that - I picked up a BFF vibe, but not really a vibe that Mai was romantically interested in Iwanako, even on a re-reading of both this and Developments chapter 60 Okay, this has driving me absolutely insane for a while now, so here is a transcript of a PM I sent ...

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

I missed the existence of this little gem. I like it. Thank you for reading it! I'm glad your attention was finally alerted to it. I think it's some of my finest work, so I'm happy to see it paid off. Iwanako is more suited to here than there, I think. It's her setting. You know, I hadn't really th...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

Yuri is a term for a genre of anime and manga. I could undersand if somebody uses it to categorize other kinds of literature - or maybe even other media - but the thought that someone could use the term in real life didn't even occur to me before now. I mean, I don't go around calling people "SciFi...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

It's not particularly subtle in this story either. Fucking thank you. 1. The chapter title -- am I right in thinking that this is a reference to a certain song? The Coldplay song was my inspiration, because it was all over the fucking radio, but I wouldn't have used it if "sky full of stars" wasn't...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

My thinking is like this: IRL there's actually this girl I'm kind of seeing right now. It's a new thing and I don't know where it's going, if anywhere—these things tend to fizzle out for me, because I'm positively awful —but we're mutually interested and that's pretty cool. But okay. Look at the sen...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

Fucking christ. I really shouldn't have posted in this thread this weekend. SC, you have my apologies. I think he's asking if you're avoiding any yuri because Iwanako may have heart problems from the physical acts of such a relationship, AKA Hisao and his heart attacks when having sex. In that case,...
