Re: Secret Santa 2022 - Story collection

Quite late, and perhaps a little less to the letter of the prompt than may have been desired (yes, I may have misread the prompt a little), but it is what it is. Victim: CraftyAtom Prompt: Winter can be dark, cold, and depressing - but it can also be beautiful, peaceful, and joyous! Two people at Y...

In fairness, "you're still here after 15 years" is pretty close.

Re: Secret Santa 2021 - Story collection

Samosa Surprise [/b] The beep of my alarm liberates me from a bizarre dreamscape. Groggily, I slap the snooze button and extricate myself from the bedsheets. Throwing on some warm pants and a grey hoodie, I prepare to face another miserable cold snowy day. On cue, the moment I leave the room I'm gr...

Re: Musings

Also worth noting that Shizune and Misha are Hisao's friends in every route (and acknowledged as such). All the others get demoted to off-screen (at best).

Re: Regarding Shizune's Mother

There are many possible answers, and many possible interpretations. Based on what A22 has said when he makes posts here, he clearly had an intention in why he did it, but he sure as hell won't tell you what it is. All kinds of speculation abound, as you alluded to with your reference to previous dis...

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

With that said, I also have the strong feeling that my retelling of the story is not as much of a waste of time as people have claimed - but I’ve been really struggling to find the words to explain why. I’m still not totally there, but I think it’s something like this: For many games, there are obv...

Re: Ask!

No. Hisao is not Emi's first boyfriend. I think they mention that in the script? I think what they're trying to ask is did Emi's first boyfriend taker her virginity or did Hisao? Yes, I was talking about her virginity Well, let's first set aside that you're more or less asking the second question e...

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

I don't get it. It took you a year and 60,000 words, and you just summarized the game and said it was sentimental. Harsh, but not unjustified. It's certainly a fair point that the initial thesis of "uplifting" got kinda lost in the middle, and there's no real conclusion to tie it all toge...

Re: Post-PhD, I spent a year writing this 60,000 word KS Essay

Well, a monumental effort, and quite thorough, though I found it a bit off-putting that you occasionally referred to it as a video. It should come as no surprise that I and others have several points of disagreement, but, at the same time, why have it any other way? I could go into detail about spec...
