I, uh...
I had the image in my mind of a city during a thunderstorm, and I knew that there would still be light but I was having trouble drawing all the details around. Originally there was supposed to be a faint glow coming from the streetlamps down below, but halfway through I realized that if the power knocked out that block or something, then the streetlamps would be dead. Or, at least, the streetlamps around here die when the power's out. Not sure if they use a different sort of grid in Japan. But anyway, partway through I decided to switch to moonlight, apparently forgetting in my mind that there's not really enough sky exposed for moonlight to be visible through the bad weather.
Ehhhhhhhhh. I'd like to just leave it as is. I've seen moonlight during a thunderstorm at night, but it wasn't really as heavy as the one I depicted in the story. I'll play around with it and see what I can do. Thanks for noticing that.
Perhaps the apartment has a habit of blowing fuses due to wiring faults or... something. That way the rest of the area would still be lit except for the apartment. I dunno. Not exactly a major issue or anything.

I called it with the blackout (so proud). The way it turned out was pretty good. Hisao always get's away with saying so little about his past and his feelings about it, it's nice that he finally opened up about himself, even if he opened up a little too much haha.

Sucks. Although there is the possibility of Akira not giving a damn because they were pretty drunk.
It's true alcohol tends to make you let out the thoughts and feelings that you'd normally keep under lock and key. Good friends know this, and don't judge too much on a persons behavior when they've had a bit too much. I know I've gotten away with doing things I'd never do sober, because we all had too much to drink.

Anyway the way it came out was pretty realistic, and I liked it. Can't wait till the day after regrets on Hisao's part, they always come, and how he and Akira will interact from now on.

Is it possible to fall in love with words?

Because it's happening right now.

Of course it is, that's why we all loved Katawa Shoujo so much.

The song is actually about alcoholism, but it could be taken various ways.

So considering it's the weekend and all, are we going to be able to see more of Akira possibly? :3

4-3 might actually be a little delayed, since I'm writing up a few Valentine's Day pieces for the folks back home. If anything, I'll try to get it out by Valentine's Day.

It won't be a 2 week delay like last time, but I'm really sorry regardless.

You owe us nothing. It's a pleasure to be able to read it each time you update. Besides, unlike LittleKuriboh and Scott Ramsoomair (VG Cats), you update frequently.

Yeah, nothing more annoying than irregular updates.

Take your time, though; we are patient with our free entertainment needs :)

Well, I feel a little obligated to keep the story going just for the sake of keeping a reader-base, since I DO get a bit of good criticism here.
Plus I already started it. No point giving myself any chances to let interest dwindle, both from myself and the readers, by taking (another) monthlong break.

Also it might not be out until the weekend because I've got to go do a concert for TMEA down in San Antonio I'm so sorry please don't kill me
