I remember reading a few pages back that Eratas disliked Cosmic Horror, why is that?

@ Box - I dislike stories where people fight giant, alien monsters then end up getting mind raped/killing themselves by the end of it. Most of the time, the abomination doesn't even stay dead.

Mass effect is a good example of a cosmic horror story. You're fighting millions of years old abominations that can take an orbital strike without flinching. Still, if you play your cards right, you can achieve a happy ending and successfully tell Cthulu to shove it.

Basically sumamrized all Seinen Magical Fantasy, at best the ending is bittersweet.

If not for those youtube videos, I think you're lying but it's the truth. Basically that's what happens with Azure Breaker vs ETX.

No. I just dislike "failure is the only option". The original plot for Shadow had a bad ending but at least they end up achieving something by the end of it. Irish commits suicide at the end of it but at least the people were stopped and the threat is over. Not like Cosmic Horrors where the monster just ends up regenerating at the end of everything.

Mass effect also uses this. If you prepare and make the right choices you can save everyone, on the other hand. If you rush through the game and act like an idiot, you get your squad slaughtered and you end up dying. It's actually up to the player on how the ending goes instead of making you fail no matter what you do.

@ Cosmic Horrors:

They can still be killed, but it needs forces beyond.

I have a few hidden, but i'm not taking them out for now.


Third Heroine Progress: 75% complete.

That's abominations. A cosmic horror story is when the protags lose by the end of it and end up dying as a result. Eldritch abominations are killable but if they're in a cosmic horror story then 9/10 times they're gonna win.

Another Scene 4...

Spoiler for Scene 4:
What the hell am I doing... I guess in my world, instead of humans, Karon without her IS is only sensitive enough to pick up Oceanic, aka dolphin speak.

Horrors, Abomnations... they are all the same in the end- the ones killing or the ones killed.

We just need to find the way.



- Unknown Galactic Force Commander.


Well anyways:

I'll ask a question that was ignored pages back.

http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/783386
http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/600222

Which of those 2 is the better image?

@ Meister - Karon's that empathic that she can understand animals? That's pretty amazing for a 9 year old.

Side note - At least I know what Tio looks like now. I was clueless in the drafts.

@ Saint X - I like the second one but it depends on you. Appearance isn't that important anyway since most readers don't pay attention to it. They prefer reading about the story and dialogue. A lot of stories don't even describe the appearance of the character and no one really asks.

Just dolphins, their more advanced brains have a bigger footprint than humans, so Karon can pick up on them without an IS. But the creatures make their intentions very obvious, so she can guess what they mean.

She's no mermaid however. She just lives near water for much of her life.

@Zero: Underwater. Certain weapons become more effective, others less, and the strain on the pilots increase.

Good lord, I laughed at Ichika's 'innocence'.

Woo thanks, I missed that one.

I plan this for the I.S. VR game which Ichika, Madoka and Dan participate, where a rabid I.S. fan-girl will complain like

Fangirl: "First, you guys turned I.S. from space exploration to earthbound gladiator fighters, and now this? What are you, mermaid? This is Blasphemy! This is Madness!!"

Ichika: "Hey, most I.S. can still fly! Mine definitely aren't earthbound!"

Yeah, facepalm ensues, except Ichika DELIBERATELY missing the point to shut her up.

Then Karon would correct her that flying in a Gas Giant planet like Jupiter will effectively be swimming. High density atmosphere = liquid after all.

Flying through a sun would be "underwater" too.

@ Zero - Did I rush it? I'm afraid I made Laura too bipolar with her arm locking Ichika on one part then Blushing at the other.

Side note - IS reminds me of Gundam. Strong in space and land but impeded on water.

Ichika: "I want to go to Jupiter"

Dan: "Why?"

Ichika: "I want to know how it feels like swimming in a pool of metal"

Dan: "?!"

Madoka: "He means Liquid metalic hydrogen....not sure if it exist in Jupiter"

In my fic, Ichika is well versed with 'conventional' science but is a cloudcuckoolander when he tried to explain it.

Nope, you don't seems to rush it and this Laura is very close to Reformed Laura in Canon.

As for I.S., it was designed for VACUUM fight then modified for atmospheric fight, high pressure condition isn't the best condition they can jump in...
