If you had a story Arc in KS...

Post by Hamadyne » Mon Jan 09, 2012 2:24 pm

...what would your Acts be titled?

Mine would be:

Act 2: Thread
Act 3: Emote
Act 4: Humanity

Although I do not have a physical disability, I found myself feeling very close to Rin as she started to break down in her arc. She couldn't understand others like most people could, much like myself.
I had a lot of problems with my Asperger's Syndrome while I was growing up. I couldn't understand others, much less express myself when I really needed to. I sometimes didn't consider myself as fully human because of those qualities. But, as time went on, I finally started to feel for others; I embraced my emerging humanity. I was a real boy after all.

It's hard to title my Acts when I don't feel like I've reached some sort of contentment, or a logical conclusion of my character progression. At best, I'd be able to title my Act 2 (but I don't know *what* the title would be without knowing where I'll end up).
Pie is delicious.

Act 2: Black
Act 3: White
Act 4: Grey
Hanako = Shizune = Rin = Lilly = Emi
I just don't like categorizing people. Even if Hanako will always be the dearest for me, I still prefer if they all get equal share of love.

Act 1: Da Capo
Act 2: Crescendo
Act 3: Al Fine

Very unsure about the act names, just something I threw out. (Every act name is a word in musical language(?))
I would be the social anxious piano player, I think.

If I was to be the inspiration for a story in Katawa Shoujo.

The story would revolve around the struggles of a musician who can no longer play music after an accident that caused damage to her brain.

When I was 15 (4 years ago) I was attack from behind by a serial assaulter who clubbed me over the head with a steel pipe. I suffered massive trauma to my spine and he severe Tramumatic Brain Injury to the left side of my brain including my cerebrum.

As a consequence of this attack I lost much of the fine motor skills in my entire left arm, causing it to sporadically spasm and I was unable to control it with any degree of finesse. If I wanted to move my arm left it would go through the notions of going up, then down, then spasm to the left.

After becoming aware of the results I was devastated. Because of this I was now unable to use my right arm, I could no longer cook properly, nor write well. I lost my prodigious skill in games at the arcade and my famous sleight-of-hand. Even now typing this post is giving me quite some trouble.

But most jarring and frustrating of all was that I lost my ability to play music.

My guitar, Piano and flute... My Cello and Violin all sat in my room unused. I no longer had the motor control to play them. It made me physically sick when I looked at them and thought that I would never hear myself play again. Depression hit very hard, very quick.

I could deal with everything else but the loss of music in my life was like losing a loved one, It felt hopeless and I despaired frequently about my life. I cursed the man who attacked me, I cursed the doctors who couldn't help me, I cursed my parents for ever letting me start music.

Then I began cursing myself for cursing others.

It took me a good 2 years to overcome my depression. With the help of my friends, my family and the medical community I am able move forward. They helped me realise that even If I can't play music I can still be a part of it.

I have since begun moving into a career of music composition. I hope to one day have my music played in concerts across the world.

Katawa Shoujo,

Alexandra Ness

Act 2: Mezzopiano (picture: Alexandra slumped over a piano or similar instrument)
Act 3: Requim (Picture: A broken Piano or similar instrument)
Act 4: Finale (Picutre: Alexandra holding a conducters baton smiling)
I believe that a man should not go back on his decisions,
But here I am deciding to break that one rule of manliness.
Because I would rather be thought less of as a man,
Then be lost as a person.
-Alexander. Infinity Ocean

Attachment and Love, is Attachment and Love, regardless of time, space or circumstance.
