… in the course of my professional activities, I encounter this gentleman and think, "Yes! Now I've met Kenji's uncle!" :D

So I just woke up (its my day off work, so lay off me!) after having a dream where Steven Spielberg directed an academy award winning documentary over the course of many years following Hisao's life as he marries Rin, becomes a motivational speaker and an activist in the disability rights movement. Unfortunately, he dies of a heart attack before ground breaking legislation is passed by the Diet which is named in his honour. Dem feels.

Is it a lucid dream or something? It doesn't seem to have any random crazy illogical shit. Even the sudden heart attack makes sense. It could just be sudden cardiac death.
Or maybe Rin is the illogical shit in the dream and you just forgot it or forgot to tell us about it. Maybe they lived on a cloud~

It was towards the end of my sleep cycle and it was quiet short, so I guess I could have been influencing the flow of things. The whole tone of the film was similar to Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth.' As for Hisao death, Spielberg (who was also narrating the documentary), simple states that Hisao "died two years before his victory" and he was still young in the dream, so when I woke up, I interpreted it as a heart attack, but your suggestion can work too. What I can remember in terms of Hisao being an activist is him fighting tooth and nail to get Rin's work displayed. I think its how my mind interoperated it afterwards was that gallery owners were refusing on the grounds of her disability.

Just woke up from a dream about Hanako, so the thought should go here.

That is pretty sweat of Hisao to do so. Although that is quite strange since gallerias have already accepted Rin's work.
But I could see a good story developing from it. Hisao and Rin are a sweet couple and Rin makes fantastic drawings which Hisao loves. Hisao believes that the world should see her art but because of Rin's disabilities she has trouble getting her art into galleries and getting them to sell. Therefore Hisao fights stereotypes and prejudice for Rin and eventually wins (with her help of course)! But right after Rin becomes ridiculously rich and their work ultimately work pays off, Hisao dies of sudden cardiac death.
Lets say that Rin has a baby so that she wouldn't commit suicide right after Hisao dies.
The documentary will show how a man and a women managed to change Japanese stereotypes against Disabled people and managed to bring much more worldwide attention to disabled people.

Yea my silly headfanon/brain fart went for too long. Sorry about that. I think I prefer the household where Rin is producing all the piles of money and Hisao is the househusband and deals with Rin's art (selling it and the like). I like thinking about how happy Rin and Hisao and their children are and how much fun they have everyday in such a unique household.

I dunno if merely dreaming about KS means you've played it too much. I think it'd mean you'd played it too much if you dreamed about it all the time, or had a bunch of really sexual dreams about it or something. :p

The thing is the only dreams I'm able to recall or even having the knowledge of having are dreams about KS. Also, they're the most vivid for me while I'm dreaming.

I know I've been playing too much because I keep wanting to dream about it. STILL haven't gotten to Dreamy Yamaku yet.

Try thinking about it while falling asleep.
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.

You have to REALLY try to make it work. Play KS before bed, Listen to KS music, Look at KS art/fan-art.

I mean hell I had a dream about Shizune/Misha and I haven't touched her route yet :P

I appreciate how nice it would be to have Yamaku-y dreams, as they'd just be awesome while you're 'there', but what happens when you wake up? If it's really vivid, then surely it'd just be that feeling of finishing a route amplified? :/ (Unless of course, you can continue dreams one after the next...)

If you read my short piece 'The Wake', that's at the end of the first post in this thread, you'll see what can happen after you wake up… it was such a harrowing experience that I just hadtogoandwritesomething! :)
