Uh, no offense Demi, but Cake Eater seems to be getting off tangent. Wasn't it supposed to be about Ichika and the older harem? Readers might get turned off since the genre shift is pretty blatant.

You can put them in on the side or for some humor, but making too many and too focused and readers will be left scratching their heads why this is being focused on rather than what the summary says. You don't summarize a book as being an action adventure and turn it into a romantic comedy.

Nah, no offense taken.

The sidestory will be a completely different one set in the same universe. Basically Ichika's story and the story of the poor sod who eventually took his place. This mostly from the theory there are more male IS pilots but just haven't been discovered yet.

Then you might want to indicate that in the summary, otherwise people will be wondering how in the hell the two are related. Granted I show parts where Dan and OC Yuuki hang out, but that's mostly to show how the male gender gets treated in Reversal. Turns out having only one adult male pilot still doesn't do much for the other sex.

Not a bad thing I'd say but that's my view.

1. Something for long range combat
2. Something that can be concealed
3. Standard katana (yes)
3. Trick sword (flame, whip etc)

Or a combination thereoff

Tsk Tsk Tsk... Eratas, there is always room for Compensating for something joke!

In this case, Compensating for something missing!

In Chifuyu's case, overcompensating for lack of a boyfriend (though at this point, the character is most likely trolling her).

Actually, compensating for something used to be IN GREATER EFFECT THAN THE GUY'S before Moe fad kicked in mid 2000s, then it become a norm for girls to have big gun/sword, to highlight how tiny and cute the girls are.

Two words.

"PENIS. ENVY."

Uh, no, not really. Chifuyu has no penis envy, mostly because she's straight and has no issues with her sexuality. She's basically like a more sane Houki for the most part, albeit friendlier and more social. She also loves snarking, as shown when she deadpans on Ichika naming her IS an Iron Maiden of all things right before she wears it.

BTW, Type in "Metal Gear Rising Mistral Boss Fight" on YouTube. Closest thing to a cyborg ninja vs IS boss fight you'll find. Make sure you click the one that says HD in the title.

@ Senpai - I don't even know what penis envy is, sorry.

Oh, and did you search the vid?

Quote:
Penis envy in Freudian psychoanalysis refers to the theorized reaction of a girl during her psychosexual development to the realization that she does not have a penis. Freud considered this realization a defining moment in the development of gender and sexual identity for women[1] - the parallel reaction in boys to the realization that women do not have a penis being castration anxiety. In contemporary culture, the term sometimes refers inexactly or metaphorically to women who are presumed to wish they were men.[2]

The psychoanalytical concept of penis envy is unrelated to the "small penis syndrome" which is the anxiety of thinking one's penis is too small,[3] (though Otto Fenichel did explore the possibility of a boy's envy for the adult [paternal] penis).[4]
Mind you, it's an idea, not even a suggestion, much less and order. So there

Watch the vid, and in my opinion, incorrect. I.S. had MUCH bigger advantage due to open terrain, a ninja-like character need to fight them up close and personal, and I.S., with inhuman reaction and supreme firepower ain't going to give that.

Of course, it's a different story if said ninja had higher reflex and at least comparable speed and durability as the vid shown. But even then, I.S. can fly, so point is moot.

Oh, although I have my own take on it with [Terrestrial Dreamer] (Also called Celestia Dreamer, more or less referring the same thing). It's like I.S., but much smaller, and sustained flight are something beyond them. The move by leaping and dashing (think Megaman series)

They carry downgraded I.S. weapon and shield, but to compensate, high grade sensor are placed by default. This allowing them to go toe to toe with I.S. in dense area such as forest or urban environment. In open terrain, TD units will be massacred by numbers.

In short, if I.S. are samurai/knight, they are thief-ninja

We knew that they can punch through concrete wall like human punch trough a plywood, and comparison can be done: they can punch through most APC/IFV the same way, or tearing average car into two like you would do to a bread.

EDIT:

Continuing with MSG Sheanigans, I found something UNSETTLING with the HF blade tech

According to both Kevin and Blade Wolf, the effectiveness of a HF blade is proportional to the quality of the blade used in it's making. Sam's sword, a 600 year old katana made by a legendary Japanese swordsmith, is considered in universe one of the best HF weapons ever made
WOOD? DECIDEDLY LOW QUALITY IRON SWORD? WTF?

Although I suppose this can be used in Mirrorverse, since I.S. core did hack out reality to an extent.

Such as Ichika use a flattened giant bar as anti-mecha blade

Has anybody felt like that you just can't write?

You have everything all set up, you know the whole concept of your story/chapters you're going to write, but you just have no "energy" to actually write them?

Lately, I've been having this issue...

^ TO be honest, I did. Looking back you will notice that I always complain about abbysmal writing. It's when I actually lose energy to overcome the confidence issues, and it's quite often.

Another something, supposedly taking place during/after Maya's office scene during the early parts of V4:

Mmm... Having no energy in writing is usually because all your energy is running wild. You want to write butyou can't find it in yourself. You need to find something to properly channel your energies through AKA do what you currently feel. If that doesn't work. Try writing somethoing on gut feeling to get words flowing again.

It's actually one of the least worse aspect, seriously, flipping a 300 ton metal gear? Nanotube muscle? Bah. 600 men gave a total yield of 60.000-90.000 kg at most, that's like 60 ton lift force. (and that assuming the ground didn't gave up first)

I use more toned down version of, well, everything, really. Less handwavium and more sciencey
