    Well I'm really liking If My Heart Had Wings so far. I'm still only on the first route though so that could change.

    Yeah, I think so too. It's just that I thought maybe one of my stories could work as they are now. But looking closer at it, I'd say they all need rewrites.

    That said, I could expand Bauer Island to novel-length and just submit chapter one as my entry (they get the rest of the manuscripts later), but the problem is, the premise itself isn't too original, and originality is one of the criteria they're looking for. Granted, I have 1-3 pages to write a description, so I could emphasize what makes it different, why Ram is an atypical detective, etc., but I'm still kinda worried it won't work, and forking over $40 at this exact moment over what is effectively a gamble is kind of too risky.

    Still, I'm glad I know this exists. I may try next year.

    Ah, remember A Rough Week? The one with the vampires. That story was also kinda open-ended and could work as like the pilot of a TV show. That is, I would have to explain the entire premise in the notes I attach to them . And I'd probably need a rewrite too, because I wrote it so long ago... Oy vey. This is way too late/

    It doesn't help that I'm sick now and will probably be unable to do anything constructive after work

    Hmm... Sounds good, but both Evie and Chuck and Bauer Island would need work, I think. I think Franco is workable, but kinda not open enough to expand on it, if they wanted to. It could work as a short film or something.

    I'll give it all some more thought, but it may actually be too late. There's always next year, though!

    As someone who has pretty much read all of my short stories, I need your advice.

    Wolf just informed me of this. The deadline is tomorrow, and the entry fee is $40 dollars, but since I have tons of stories, I thought that maybe I should try.I just don't know which standalone thing would work. I don't wanna use Eden or Crosswords, because I want to make them into novels first. Can you remember any single, stand-alone story that stood out to you, that could work as a visual story?

    Grandia II review is up

    I just started it but it seems like it will be substantial in size. I got a guide so I can see all da routes and I haven't even had my first decision yet. Heck I haven't even been introduced to all of the main romantic options yet and I'm over two hours in. So I think it'll keep me going for a while and I'm also playing To The Moon, which seems like it might be shorter.

    The visuals are pretty stunning and I like a few of the characters I've met. It has a male tsundere which is a nice twist. He hugs the protagonist because they haven't seen each other in a while and then starts calling him an idiot and stuff. I'll have to wait and see how it shapes up though since I haven't seen too much of it yet!

    I did notice most of the games on my wishlist were on sale, so luckily I managed to grab one but that's all that's in the budget for right now. I think a blog post on it would be good though if you want to make one! I'm also excited to hear your thoughts on Root Double once you've played through it as it might be another game to add to ~the list~

    Aha, well that's good xD. In it's own way, I suppose!

    How's Root Double going?

Interesting Routes: Aqua

by Karifean on 11-30-2017 at 09:21 PM
There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.

Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 12:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.

Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of clichť, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 08:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.
