Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed: July—Iwanako)

Jesus, guys, my birthday isn't until October. http://i.imgur.com/6kraCUE.png the more active roles of the NPCS in the scene vs. the general passiveness of everyone in the original KS prologue. You know, of all the intentional parallels I put into my writing, I can't actually remember if that was sup...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed: July—Iwanako)

Walls of text are really only an issue when the poster is kind of an ass, and those guys get Cooked pretty quick. Well, the last time I commented on Developments , people said I stole all the comments. I'm also a little unsure as to whether or not discussions are now open on early MTtB chapters, an...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed: July—Iwanako)

Iwanako never came across to me as dislikeable to begin with. It was only later that she showed some behaviours which might have been so. Particularly in these early chapters, getting that across was a less pressing objective—I wrote the prologue in a totally different mindset, which is why Iwanako...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed: July—Iwanako)

EDIT: oops, I read back further up and realised that you actually liked Finality , Leaty. :) The lack of a http://i.imgur.com/2PQyP2U.png should have tipped you off. It's one of my favorite Brythain stories, actually. And I should clarify my hatred of M/S::I/T originates with Themocaw's writing, no...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed: July—Iwanako)

And I'm not quite sure why you think you might have... My pop culture analogies are very hit-or-miss with you and I find that amusing. I do agree that that seems weird. Those are hardly even characters , more like names why would you care who they are shipped with one way or the other? I guess sinc...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Resumed: July—Iwanako)

I'm working on my own writing, so I don't think I'll be able to analyze the other Iwanako pieces at length--and I've already said my piece on Something Different. I'd like to keep the discussion going, though, so I'd like to briefly touch on the remaining three shorts. Challenge Accepted has always ...

Re: Firing Blanks - (Updated 6-27) Scrapped Routes

You know, now that I think about it more critically, it seems like kind of a missed opportunity that there weren't any Hisaos in wheelchairs.

Re: Firing Blanks - (Updated 6-27) Scrapped Routes

This is basically the reason I'm so fond of this thread: everything in it is really high-concept. I'm totally about that. It's similar to "A World Much Like Our Own" though, in that I didn't fully understand what was going on during my first read-through. Admittedly my medications have been totally ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Iwanako Rising)

Misstep!Hisao is really the only permutation of the character I can't sympathize with, to be honest. For all people talk about how much of an asshole he is in the bad endings, none of his behavior in the other endings really strikes me as especially unreasonable. He's definitely always placed in a p...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Iwanako Rising)

the only thing I would disagree with is the ending remark that "nobody wants to see your literary noodlings" because that was what happened with my Miki route. Sure, it's a rare case that the literary noodlings seem to actually go somewhere, but if you can keep it up for long enough, people will re...

Soundtrack

So, I didn't want to post in this thread again until I finished a new scene, but I just wanted to let everybody know that the soundtracked version of the fic has been completed. The OP has been updated—each ( ♬ ) links to the GDocs version of the listed scene. (I've included some Author's Notes as w...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting/Hisao Final Week Approach)

Speaking as a writer, I think that, if I wanted to write an honest-to-goodness, original flavor "Hisao fic," I'd need to do one of four things: A) Puzzle out how Hisao might have some kind of juicy secret that, was, somehow, never reasonably hinted at in any of the routes. I've been trying to think ...

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting/Hisao Final Week Approach)

But the general question I suppose I've found myself asking in this part of YBC is this: aside from KS itself, is there a 'big Hisao fic'? Can there be? It's an excellent question. I would point to two different fics one could consider "Hisao fics": Tomorrow's Doom and Summer's Clover (taking the S...

I've actually been trying to remind myself not to obnoxiously monopolize this thread when that time rolls around. Image

Re: Yamaku Book Club (Meeting Continuing 11 June 2015)

All right. As always with a Brythain piece, I’m at something of a disadvantage—your voice and pacing is just so different from my oeuvre that it, to some degree, undermines my ability to provide a thoughtful analysis. Add that to the fact that I haven’t finished After the Dream (it’s an attention de...
