I don't understand this question; can you rephrase it?

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

I discovered this fic back in the summer, and it's still my favourite. Thank you so much :) I've tried to write kind of story I wished this fandom would have had, so hopefully I'm sating the appetite of others with similar tastes. Yuri route? I don't consider this story a route, and I don't conside...

Hot damn that was some top-shelf praise. I'm vicariously glowing.

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumes — [Shizune])

You know, I'd like to think I'm a pretty solid writer, but one thing I notice a lot is that I'm not really well-known for sublime takes on any character I didn't flesh out myself. Like it's easy enough for me to say that Forgetmenot's Rin and Hisao are top-tier, as are Dewelar's Emi and Rin, Blank's...

Re: Learning To Fly - A Saki pseudo-route (Updated 10/15)

"Countdown" has been such an appropriate title for this whole act. Particularly since the last chapter—where Saki's cards were laid out on the table—there's been a rising sense of tension in the narrative. The inevitability of Saki's progressively dwindling quality of life weighs me down as a reader...

There's a reason we call that movie Mad Max: Yuri Road.

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

I've read a chapter, and this seems really interesting thus far. I've noticed that some aspects of your writing are kind of similar to mine, namely, the type of humor. I want you to know I've been puzzling for days over which scene it was you actually read, because most of the first few chapters ar...

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

Heavens, I'm not worthy of resounding praise. You guys are great :) dear lord, this is by far the best fic i have ever read. And this is by far the highest praise I could ever hope for. This fic is very much like a new game plus Excellent. That's one of those things I've definitely always been going...

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

Thank you for this. Thank you so much for this. I think I actually like this more than I like MTtB , which is a high bar. Not since the very early pre- Developments days of my association with this community has there been something that rewrote large chunks of my headcanon for KS like this one has...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Update: Aug/Sep—Hanako)

Another book Hanako was mentioned reading in the VN was Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami. According to the article, the novel (as well as several of Murakami's other books) deals with loss, abandonment and alienation. It's possible she read that book because it hit a personal spot. This is esse...

Re: Comment from the Chair

I love this discussion as much as I loved having Leaty around last month. We're seeing nuts-and-bolts, comparisons, learning points... wonderful! I'll just throw in a little question here: What short Hanako fiction do you like most, or has made the greatest impact (good or bad) on you—and why? A li...

Re: Developments, Epilogue

I start to shake a bit, because at first I don't know what she means. Then it strikes me. "Ah!" I say aloud, then return to signing. [Desautels? In Tokyo? I think they only have a master's program.] [No,] she says, smiling and adjusting her glasses. [I'm talking about their home campus at Ma-gi-ru ...

Re: Developments (Post-Lilly Neutral End) - Ch.60 posted 8/3

It's a little sad, though, to see that unlike Hisao, Iwanako seems to have gotten a little colder in her interactions, and she was never all that warm to begin with. At this point, maybe I'm reading too far into the limited dialogue we get...? (Or I just love cold-yet-secretly-lonely characters.) I...

Re: Bantamweights: A One-Shot

Thanks to everybody for the praise! I think Iwanako comes across here worse than Hisao ever did in the game. It's an interesting way to look at her and their relationship. I'm having a bit of trouble parsing this. Do you mean that Iwanako comes across worse than Hisao ever portrayed her as being? Be...
