Makes it all the more interesting in the long run! And hey, it's not like it hasn't been done before. There's just something oddly funny about seeing super-powered/supernatural chicks fighting over the one normal/semi-normal guy.

EDIT: Pageclaim for Yuuno harems!

Oh I didn't mean to say that the idea itself is a problem, thematically speaking!

Just Yuuno's problem. Good thing he's so good with defensive magic. :k

Well, in my case I never liked using Rai for Material-L, but went with it since it was consistent with Yami and Seikou. But now that a better, official name was out, I was considering going back and swapping Levi in. But I'm aware that would wreck the name consisteny and that I should use Stern and whatever Material-D's name is instead, but I don't like those

@Aaron008R: Glad you like it

Though something about that fic I wonder about... Was spoiling the pairing in the description a bad move? Would it have been better if there was no indication of where the fic was going?

I started it back in the days when I was alone on FF.net and backlash from that incident was still pretty strong. I thought that if I didn't mark it NanoFate, as well as mark it Hayate/Yuuno to assure people that Yuuno wouldn't get in the way of the NanoFate, no one would read it.

...

I now have an image of Yuuno desperately running around the city as the girls fight over him, casting shields and other things to try and protect the building and the people as best he can while up above in the air, there's a cat fight.

Never thought you implied that, either. But anyway...

Defense, teleportation, healing, binds and a whole smattering of support abilities that CAN be used offensively. In the hands of someone who can use characters well, harem lead!Yuuno could easily match the Aces/Materials in due time after a few upgrades as a tricky fighter. Let's just hope nobody in the harem is stupid enough to pull the defeat-means-youcandowhateveryouwantwithme card...

Hmm. Changing the name shouldn't be much of an issue. But I guess that it could affect some of the people who have become intimately familiar with the Material Days fic. If it was me, I wouldn't mind. There are much, much worse retcons compared to just changing a name. Besides. I like Yami and Seikou better but prefer Levi for M-L as well. :3

No.

Consider it as a legitimate form of advertisement. There are people who read fics for the author, those who read for the pairing or those who read for the genre. And of course, a mixmatch of those above plus some more. Whenever I read fics in fanfiction.net, one of my criteria of reading a fic I know nothing about is the short summary/description. Trust me, my interest meter wouldn't have been as high if the description was Babysitter!Yuuno rather than the current Babysitter!Yuuno + HayatexYuuno development along the way.

In short, the point of the description on fics is to draw in readers by catching their interest. If you don't want to spoil an element of the fic, fine. But be sure to advertise well. A good fic is wasted if no effort is put to it getting attention from readers. =3

Some people like surprises like that. But everybody have their own tastes. If some people feel like the sauce is spoiled by revealing the ingredients too early, then too bad for them. If you ask me, it's fine as it is. But I'm sure you'll find a number of people berating you for spoiling that part early. It's different strokes for different folks so don't be too caught up on possible negative comments and such.

(Of course, things are different once you get NOTHING bu negative comments. That's some difficult situation you'd have to dig out of; which, apparently, is not the situation you're in right now so relax. :3)

Ahh... A fanfic-writer's Freudian excuse-*SHOT WITH A MACHINEGUN*



No. I apologize for that. I know it might come across as rude to some but it was the first thing that popped into my mind. I've been reading too much tvtropes for the past few days, sorry.

In any case, I do get where you're coming from. I was lucky to have started writing here (well, in the OC community ) where everyone wasn't as stringent about NxF compared to other web communities. And I wasn't even writing about any pairings so it was safe. I'd have done similarly if I was starting out in fanfiction.net But again, I know it's a bit late to say this but you should relax when you're here. We don't bite.


*phew*

It's been a while since I commented. I guess I'm a little too wordy for my own good. X3

EDIT: GAH!!! Damn you, Nanya! Ninja-ing an update just when I finished my post!

*goes to read*

... I can easily picture Hayate pulling that kind of stunt, especially with her "canon" capabilities in battle.

Yuuno: Argh stop following me! *Puts up a shield*
Hayate: *Flies straight into shield* Oh dear! I seem to have flown too fast and am now far too injured to do anything to stop any unwanted advances.
Yuuno: ! Hayate! I'm sorry I didn't mean to hurt you! Let me get Shamal right awa-
Hayate: Oh there's no need for that~ you know a few healing spells don't you?
Yuuno: But if your injuries are so bad you can stop any mismannered men I definitely can't help you!
Hayate: ... *sigh*
Vice: Seriously! Why does he get the chicks!!!!

Also
Vice: Hayate! What's with you, I thought you were in charge of your own personal lesbian army!
Hayate: I am~ and I want Yuuno to be part of it. I mean look at him~ he's practically a girl already~ just a few snips here and there~
Yuuno: Please just leave me alone ;-;


Honestly any girl trying to pull that sort of stunt with yuuno would run into this

I think his reactions to when the girls' would bring him into the bath with them tells us all we need to know about how he'd act in typical harem situations

Little snippet from a short fic I'm planning to write sometime in the future, explaining Miranda and Lutecia's partnership. Kind of rough around the edges, but it was an image that wouldn't leave me alone, so I decided to write it out just to see how it felt. Thoughts?

Wait, an official name? The original staff had made another name or is it just your idea? IMO, I prefer Seikou, Yami and Rai, as it's easier to remember than the other names, which I can easily confuse for OC names.

Stern's the only one that's still sort of meh, mostly because it's more of a guys name, but I'm getting used to it. Considering it means star in German I can see what they were trying to go for (try pronouncing it in German in your head, it suddenly sounds a lot better).

No problems with the others. Levi is the name of a rather well known psycopath, so that certainly fits. Dearche is a cool name, now that I've gotten used to it.

Ugh.

Hayate, dear. Lampshading your (fake) situation in such a manner doesn't work most of the time if it's done like that...

Though why Yuuno believed it in the first place... Hell if I know. *facepalm*

*currently trying to imagine Material-S of all people trying it*

...

I'd better stop.

Well... He was a kid by then. I wouldn't think he'd be as virtuous when he's older.

You say imagine it. Stern does sound pretty good. But I also tried thinking of them in Japanese syllabicated dialect...

Stern = Shu-te-ru (omitting the 'n' at the end?)
Levi = Re-vi (Nothing too jarring)
Dearche = De-a-ru-chu (Hoo, boy)

Then again, I can't read Hiragana/Katakana just yet. So I don't know how they are actually pronounced as per magazine scans/websites.
