Same here. I just created an account to ask the same. I have read it but the distance made me forgot some of the details. But still, this is an epic story. I love how you make the story have a lot of twists leaving me wanting for more. Please make it as long as you can :mrgreen: . I LOVE HOW YOU ADD A DIRTY SIDE TO MISHA xDDD and that "vagina" on Misha's shirt just got me laughing :P

I would not be surprised if this is Hisao fault. He don't know English well, after all. Maybe it was "pussy" (you know... cat) or something like that?

Don't need to reread the whole story. The incident just happened in Act 3 Scene 1. Obviously, Shizune considered it a much bigger deal than Hisao.

As for the shirt, you should already be familiar with Misha's pink outfit. It was pulled straight from the VN. I guess I can reword it to "brown and tan" rather than "dark pink and light pink" if that makes it a little more clear...

Awesome chapter Prof. Alister. Glad to see you're still writing this.

It was her Bush/Cheyney sweater.

Anyway, Misha was adorable in this chapter, good job.

Ah now i remember. Though Hisao sure assumes things too much even in the visual novel. To be completely honest, I'm not exagerating or anything, but this route you've been making has granted everything I could ever think that Misha would do. You even added something I never thought Misha would do. Though I wish you would add more twists, like another girl that would test their relationship or something.

My face when reading the part where Shiina and Hisao were studying in his room: :shock:

I was just curious. Prof, where'd you get your name? Because the closest name I know is Alistar from League of Legends.

Also Prof i forgot to ask xD Have you watched the anime Toradora? I don't know but your Misha has somewhat the same personality as the character Kushieda Minori. They both have pink hair, likes extremely spicy food, very clumsy but absolutely skilled at the hands (Kushieda is a baseball player) and they both stick together with their best friend who is an extreme tsundere.

Uhm, wow.

I'd like to imagine you're not new to the internet, but you seem to be making a few rookie mistakes, so here's a quick primer on the appropriate netiquette:

1) Don't ever use the word "netiquette." It makes you sound like an ass.
2) Asking personal questions is somewhat off-topic and generally best reserved for PMs.
3) If you have multiple things to say, but were the last person to say anything, it's generally encouraged that you edit your most recent post (with some exceptions, depending on circumstances).

With regard to your comments:

Twists and complications are coming. Introducing too many conflicts or unnecessarily long-lived conflicts can be dangerous, as people are likely to get "drama fatigue." These things work on a natural progression. From a meta perspective, we're only at Scene 2 of Act 3, so we still have nearly two whole acts to go. From the internal perspective, Hisao and Misha are still very much in the "honeymoon" period of a new relationship. During the honeymoon, any signs of conflict are likely to be ignored or minimized, if they're noticed at all. Give it time.

I've had this name since about 2004, give or take a couple years. League of Legends was released in 2009. "Allister" is probably more recognizable in the alternate form "McAllister," meaning "Son of Alistair." "Alistair" is generally assumed to be the Scottish form of "Alexander." In other words, it's a surname. In real life, I am neither a professor, nor is "Allister," "Alistair," or "Alexander" part of my name.

I'm flattered by the implications you propose in the connection to Toradora (namely that I invented the character of Misha), but that goes to the 4LS team (of which I am by no means a part). Specifically, I understand that Anonymous22 (the author of Shizune's route and one of the main coauthors of Act 1) and Aura (the author of Rin's route and the other main coauthor of Act 1) provided the most of Misha's characterization. It's also possible that much of her final character design is the result of "design by committee." I had no part in any of that. Given Toradora's air date of 2006-2009, it is possible that there was an influence, but I'm the wrong person to ask. Out of the traits you listed, the only one that comes from me (rather than the Devs/the original VN) is the spicy food. Also, Shizune's not Tsundere by any stretch of the imagination. If she's a -dere at all, it would be Kuudere.

And no, I haven't seen Toradora, or much recent anime at all.

When Prof sets things straight, he really sets things straight. Remind me never to get into a fight with you.

Sorry about that prof :? I'm just the talkative type of person. Sometimes I get too interested in something that I forget to mind other people's "rights". It's like once a topic gets in my brain, all of these wierd or obvious questions start coming out that I become rude at times.
But anyways, forgive me prof for delving into too much of something off-topic to the thread :(
