After multiple distractions, I've finally caught up with your progress. What can I say, I'm loving your route, man!
I'm especially liking your depiction of Suzu; she's quite different from Scissorlips' version so it was a little disconcerting at first, but I'm loving her personality and it seems her Narcolepsy doesn't weigh her down as much as in the PPSR as much as I'd hate to say it, I found Scissor's Suzu a bit depressing towards the end of the route

You've made great progress in your writing ability from the beginning, and I can only imagine this'll be one of the more revered pseudo-routes when you complete it. I'd offer to do some illustrations or something, but I'm down one PC at the moment, so all I can do is slam that Subscribe button and giggle to myself in anticipation.

Keep up the good work, mate!
Like stupid, silly doodles with no point? You've come to the right place, friend :^)
I also occasionally write oneshots. Why not have a skimread?
Miki fic? Miki fic!

Huh. For some reason when this started I just couldn't get into it, but a couple days ago I had nothing better to do and tried again. I must say I'm glad I did, whatever turned me off in the beginning is certainly gone now.

It may be the fact that I actually posted the first chapter on a whim, then rushed through quite a bit of the first act. I have however planned everything of importance until the end, including the good and bad endings (yes, there will be two if I make it that far) and started taking my time with the instalments, which is hopefully noticeable with the start of the second act.

Other than theories at what could've put you off of this, thanks for posting, I'm glad to find out that people actually enjoyed the first act despite it's many flaws! :lol:

Started reading this, and I can totally relate to Guestimate. The beginning is sort of rushed, I think. They met the first time and BAM they're already best friends and he sleeps in her bedroom. I'll keep reading because I'm still waiting for my books to arrive, let's see if you improve there :wink:
Best story:
Hanako > Rin > Lilly > Emi > Shizune

best girl:
Lilly > Shizune > Emi > Hanako > Rin

Eh, that's my opinion.

I've decided it's best if I inform you all of my current situation now instead of raising speculation as to the lack of updates, or posts in general, in the future.

Blossom is not dead. It is simply hospitalised, in a coma if you will. I don't want to give up on the project, but an opportunity has come up which has landed me on a new Visual Novel team, known as B^3 , and as such I don't have as much time to work on it as I used to. However, evey cloud has a silver lining.

When I eventually return, I will be rewriting the entire first act, fixing the timeline issues, updating the writing to my new standards and generally making it better. In my absence, however, the newest attempt at a Miki route, COM (Promise), shows a very interesting twist in the Miki Market; it is from her perspective. I recommend going there.

So, until my return, I wish all authors inspired by my work the best of luck in their endeavours, and wish to thank you all for your amazing feedback up until now. I will still be visiting the forums regularly, so if anybody ever needs permission or advice from me, then I'll still be around to answer. So, for formality's sake, goodbye for now my friends, even if I'm not technically leaving! :D

Edit: B^3 is still hiring, details can be found here http://www.reddit.com/r/BCube/new/ (I hope this isn't breaching some rule, I'm unaware of anything forbidding it)

A shame to see it go on hiatus but at least it's not indefinite. Congrats on joining B^3!

Too bad. I was really enjoying this...
Good luck with your new project. I'd suggest getting a better homepage, though. If there is something like an "About"-thread there, it's buried too deep to find it.

Oh dear, another one. :roll: Best of luck, considering how ambitiously this is setting its sights, I think you'll need it.
