Why'd you write from Miki's perspective? I like it, it's just surprising since nothing else was written from anybody's perspective other than Hisao's.
Just pointing out that you're wrong: all of us wrote things in other perspectives than Hisao's. You can find some old things in the fanfic forum. It was fun to change things up and/or it helped develop characters.
Okay. I guess I meant more the route itself being fully from somebody else's perspective, as in, when you choose any of the five girls' routes, you still see Hisao's thoughts and not theirs. I suppose this was just a case of writing to develop Miki in a new way?

I think what Aura meant was that most of the KS writers have written KS fanfiction from other characters' perspectives - like his own very short Mutou route - and Surikos recent story is simply the longest such to date.

Okay, that would make sense then.

Suriko:

I've been reading Summer's Clover alongside an older Suzu fanfic by a gentleman by the name of Scissorlips, and I've noticed something interesting: Scissor's interpretation of Suzu seems to be a polar opposite to your interpretation.

In his story, she doesn't have cataplexy; in yours, she does. In his story, she's a shy but reasonably extroverted and playful person; in yours, she's totally introverted and mechanical. On and on and on.

Was this intentionally done or is it just a big coincidence?

Suriko answered a similar question on his ask.fm page a while back, but concerning a Lilly fic:
I haven't really read any of the KS fanfiction that's around. Nothing against it at all, though.

Wow, nice. :)

Hmm, is this based on real life or is it just made for fun?

I would like to say a representation, but I have my stupidly expensive headphones on whilst I am downloading photos from my camera.

Aura wrote:The names were decided before 4LS and were some of the first actual decisions made for the project because priorities. It really wasn't any more or less difficult than any other decision, even with more people talking about them with somewhat less coordination. The deaf girls' name was initially Rosa, which was changed maybe a few months later. Humorously, the biggest proponent for "Rosa" came back months and months later, after 4LS was already formed, to fight us about the name again.

When the cast expanded with side characters, they were mostly named by single 4LS devs, maybe with some consultation. The philosophy with naming them ranged from pretty laissez-faire (which resulted in some stupid shit that still makes me cringe) to obsessive (similar to the trench warfare about Shizune's name), depending on who was involved.

I know this is going back a few answers, but "Iwanako" is a bastardisation of a girl that I had a crush on at the beginning of KS (she was Polish), and I used "Misha" because I watched "Hannibal Rising" at about that time.

Also "Yamaku" is an inside joke from a (failed) attempt at translating the Higurashi Visual Novels, where our translator mis-read "Yamainu" as "Yamaku". Since Yamaku was going to be on a mountain ("yama" meaning mountain) and me being a massive Higurashi fanboy, that is how that was chosen. That was very much in the "democracy be damned!" phase of development.

Make it official, Misha's older brother is Hannibal Lecter.

Pardon me if this has been asked/answered before:

Where/when did Hanako get the penguin?

He means the stuffed penguin that's seen on her bed in the bad ending CG.

Aura wrote:3) Even if you think you know the answer to some question, don't answer it. Misinformation has a tendency to stick around, and the point of this thread is to clarify things, not muddle them up further. I will enforce this one pretty heavily until everyone gets the point. The exception is pointing out that the same question has been answered before (with a link)

Duly noted. I can see where I did that earlier in the thread (Paragon Terminus' question about the Suzu fanfic), and I apologize because I have read the thread rules and thus should've known better. But in OremLK's case, I wasn't providing an answer to his question, I was only trying to clarify it for you since you didn't seem to know what he was talking about. :|
