Welcome to the forums! If you're still hankering for more KS-related material, there's plenty of good stuff on the fanfiction board. If you're looking for a specific kind of story, the Yamaku Library is a great place to start. In addition, the shimmie is a great place for more KS art.

I couldn't imagine being so closed to new things that when faced with the possibility of some new musical experience, I deliberately mute it and put on some safe stuff I already know I like. Why would anybody do that...

@Julliant: Transcend humanity to enter the 2D world and find Yamaku. Or, y'know, fanfiction and all that.

So one of my friends is playing Fallout: New Vegas and he just finished the Honest Hearts DLC and I thought to myself:
I wonder what Hanako and Lilly would think of Joshua Graham?

Imo, I think Hanako would probably relate to his condition, and Lilly would possibly admire his devotion to his own morals (if being a bit militant)
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.

Thank you for the warm reception peoples.

I'm catching up on all the forum threads while listening to the KS OST on my headphones with built-in player.

I don't know what it is about that song, but every time I hear it I feel, like, existentially troubled.
Concord has the same effect on me.
Can't put my finger on it, but it makes me feel bad. Not sad, angry, lonely, or anything I can put my finger on... just an unidentifiable bad feeling.
Lilly's route didn't really have too much affect on me either, so I doubt it was anything to do with her, I think it's something about that beginning pattern.

Listening to it now and I still can't put my finger on it.

For the record, my favorite Katawa Shoujo theme never actually made it into the game. It's the second draft of Painful History.

I sort of consider it the unofficial-official leitmotif of Iwanako, since she's the only love interest of Hisao who never had one of her own.

That was actually quite good, though the frequent full stops were kinda breaking the flow of the song a bit.

That sounds ridiculously good. And strangely something I'd expect to hear out of Final Fantasy 10, stops and all.

The full stops actually make sense when you put it in the context of how Hanako and Hisao's relationship would go in real life - it'll take them a long time for their relationship to flow, and sometimes misunderstandings and anxiety will combine to cause effectively a stoppage of the relationship.

Ah, the piano version of Painful History. I remember it playing in the Act 1 Demo during the scene where Hanako gets stared down by Shizune. I was surprised when they used a different song for that scene in the full version...at first.
Sisterhood: True Edition. Hanako epilogue I wrote. Now expanded with additional chapters.

So whats this mystical place of wonder and amazement that is called the sorry corner :lol: ?

Just curious since from time to time it pops up and its clearly from before I ever discovered KS.

I think it's a place Silentcook puts people in, like the Sin Bin or rules for other yellow-card type offences.
