Speak a language which your target can understand. If it's through kindness, all the better. But if you have to break out the venom or fists, do so if the alternatives fail (and you have given plenty of chances).

A thread with no posts from Xanatos? What's happened to the world? :o

I'll read the manga when I have time. :)

Ah, public school. Just as terrible as I remember it.

So who'll be the first to write Shouko into a KS fic? :)

Well, this is surprising. I expected this thread to be a passing curiosity lost to time, like those "Here's an amputee Olympian" threads...But it's still here. Guess I'll have to read this thing then...Be back in a bit.

Edit: ...*hands over all his man cards, goes off and sobs in a corner* :cry:

Also, already working Shouko into a fanfic. Just a bit part, mind. I've got the whole main cast to fit into this thing. :lol: Even poor Yuuko's only getting a bit part.

I really liked it, but man, I shouldn't have started my day with this. Now I'm going to be emotional all day.

I enjoyed that, but are kids in public schools really that physical? Either way, guy's a scumbag for hitting a girl.

Girls aren't special. Quit pretending they are. That mindset just creates more useless feminists.

And yes, they are. I've never gone anywhere but public schools and I can confirm it firsthand. Kids are terrible people in general, really. :lol:

Aside from a few oddities (like the whole "three years later" epilogue) this was very nice and moving. Really liked it.

That's one shitty school. Very good read though, shame it's a one off.

Thanks for posting this, Caesius. That was so well-done, in drawing, writing and visual storytelling. Definitely not written by one of those people who think that children are naturally angelic creatures (anyone who's been around them for very long knows they can be as sadistically cruel and treacherous as they can be selflessly kind).

I fully endorse this. I could easily see her parents deciding to send her to Yamaku after her elementary school problems.

I learnt that from Angel Sanctuary. Especially kids who are literal angels. Kids mean what they say and say what they mean, for good and for ill.

Wow that was really good.

I've been bullied myself, so I can relate a bit to this. Kids can be cruel and I'm glad they ended this the way they did. :)

Okay, so I liked it so much I made a little drawing in the Fan Art section.
