That was more-or-less my way of thinking about it. Plus I figured it made a certain kind of sense given her love of reading.Exbando wrote:Reconciliation:
Retelling the ending from Hanako's perspective...interesting
Hanako's a writer now? I guess it is easier to type things than it is to actually say them (considering how hard it is for er to talk to people most of the time.
Yeah, I'm very satisfied with how well I managed to mislead people at first.Exbando wrote:The Hotel Room:
I think I know where this story is going now. Hanako will meet up with Hisao and they will be together again.
Yup!Exbando wrote:Bad Connection:
So Hisao is going to call Hanako now...Oh, I guess not...OH YOU BASTARD!
None taken. It was actually attached to Bad Connection at first, but it wasn't totally finished at the time and I wanted to keep the updates consistent so I split the two.Exbando wrote:Flight:
To me, this part seemed like filler (no offense)
That's a compliment I most certainly enjoy reading.Exbando wrote:Arrival:
I feel like this is exactly how those characters would react in those situations.
It seems like Sho has the greatest sense of logic of any of the characters in the Katawa Shoujo universe (aside from Kenji, of course).
They got married...I see a conspiracy here...
So Lilly doesn't always have complete control over the tone of her voice...
Oh my god, if Hisao "faked" his own death just so he could see Hanako again I'd have to write in him getting killed out of principle. And pure, unfiltered hatred.Exbando wrote:Letting Go:
The entire time I expected everything to just be some elaborate plan to get to see Hanako again.
I hate funerals. Even if they're for someone I hardly knew, I still start to cry...
Thanks! And yeah, Twilight is awful.Exbando wrote:Breakdown:
Wow, you're really good at characterization.
I'm still half expecting Hisao to show up out of nowhere, that is what tends to happen.
Twilight hate...You win
I'm perfectly okay with that. I knew not everyone would be happy with it ending openly like that, but it's what I planned from the start. As long as I ended it on a positive note, with Hanako's future looking much less bleak and lonely, I knew I'd be content.Exbando wrote:Departure:
And still, not enough closure for me. Maybe I actually like having an ending like, "and they lived happily ever after."
Thanks, I really appreciate that.Exbando wrote:Your fic here has made me cry. That is a good thing, since you managed to keep emotional investment in all of the characters throughout.
Sorry about the rambling, I tend to type a lot...
And I don't consider it rambling at all. I'm perfectly happy reading anyone's feedback or feelings on the story, no matter how much or how little text it may involve.
