Re: Higurashi ending




Well, you reminded me of why I didn't watch Higurashi.
I did end up watching the last episode of "School Days", and took a look
at the game endings on youtube. This sort of thing is just... Well done,
in any case.

Yeah I ended up feeling similarly here. Just not my thing and I actually liked Higurashi as a whole. Mostly the good times in that show and less the terrifying death .

From my point of view it was pretty well written. Just not the kind of story I'd read that often. Somehow never got that into characters you like brutally killing each other. I need to go watch something cheerful now .

I need to give mad kudos to -Fate- for the work done with the Teana fic. The manga insert is far beyond any expectation. This place is crawling with people that make us mortal feel inadequate by far...

In light of this spirit of escalating expectation with fanfics, I have to get my lazy ass together and start doing drawing the only way I know how... shameless ripoff from what others have done and do it dirty using the magics of vector. Here's a Wendi in Clannoha. To be honest, I am not even sure about casting... hehe.



I am not done with this yet, but I am lazy. Therefore, here's this piss-poor excuse of a piece for people to chew me out! I have no idea what Wendi should actually be holding at any rate so suggest something I guess.

Re: To Walk before to Run

Spoiler for To Walk before to Run:


Well done! I haven't seen many fics dealing with Nanoha's patrol incident,
and it's aftermath. Hayate is a great character for helping Nanoha to deal
with her disabillities, seeing as how she spent years in a wheelchair, and then
finally convalescing and going through rehabilitation. From all that I've heard about that sort of thing, it's pretty much pure hell when there's a large amount of recovery to be done. This humble poster is in fact trying to write a fic around Nanoha's incident, but trying to focus more on earthside.

her have their own "unofficial" designation, Vivio following in her mother's footsteps and apparently being successful, Subaru being her over-the-top self, and even more so . And best of all, the long overdue rehabilitation of one of the TSAB's own.

The motivation behind this story:

Quote:

In StrikerS, we find out that Teana’s brother was pretty much disowned for his apparent failure before his death. This always struck me as a raw deal – the poor man fell in battle, but nobody acknowledged that were it not for him, the criminal he was chasing would probably have escaped. The criminal was eventually caught by ground forces, not the best and brightest of the lot, so it is not unreasonable to infer that the air force mage gave as good as he got and at least crippled the criminal before he got away.


Spoiler for snip:

Heh, an entire generation of flight mages fondly recalling the time "Nanoha Mama" kicked their asses and straightened their spines...


Spoiler for snip:


Heavy Land Assault... right... How many women are in Hayate's new unit? Or at least how many female officers?

I did find it interesting that in one of the last scanlated StrikerS manga chapters, that Hayate expresses her own dissatisfaction with her performance as a commander, and her intention to give up command. She's then told that you can only learn to command by commanding, and that she should make sure to learn from her mistakes.

enjoyable overall, in any case.

No complaints from me, since the needs of the story should dictate the comings and goings of the characters.

Spoiler for Bless the Broken Road: Healing:
Filler? You call this filler? *thwaps RB with large trout*

First off, you've finally provided some solid details about just what's got Fiasse so torqued at the TSAB; generic Evil Administrative Government Bureaucrats behind it--indeed, it seems apropos that Al's "superior officers" don't even get names; they're not really people, after all, more like...symptoms of a problem called "power corrupts."

(I wonder, given everyone's ages, and the fact that more than likely the "implanted core" project blew up in everyone's faces--both through, say, Al and Lindy going off on them and the apparent side effects that Elise is now suffering through, which you highlighted in earlier chapters as well at the end of the motorcycle scene here--if this resulted in more black-budget TSAB funding being directed towards Jail and/or Precia, which in turn would mean that the actions of Lindy and Al in the past are indirectly part of how Fate came to exist?)

It's nice to start getting some answers to all the questions and mysteries posed in earlier chapters, since it appears from the Zarf scene as well as the familiar scene that it's about time for the clash of forces to begin in earnest (I like how Blaze and Fury have distinct personalities, even though they're basically bit players).

Yuuno picking the door lock was the best part of the Fate/Hayate/Yuuno scene, though Hayate recognizing Fate's "fake smile" issue was good too. That reminds me of how Fate would act with Arf in MGLN about Precia; she and Nanoha are very similar in how they both want to hold their pain inside, although they act in very different ways while doing it.

Miyuki cheering up Fiasse seemed a little abrupt; while loved ones can offer comfort without necessarily getting to the point of the problem, Fiasse seemed too happy too quickly without ever getting around to the point of why she was so upset in the first place (meaning that whatever issues had her down didn't get addressed). That's probably the weakest scene in this chapter.

Zafira recognizing that Arf wasn't asleep was one of those cute little touches and feels right. I myself can always tell the point at which my wife goes from "relaxed" to "asleep," so the comment felt "true."

I totally forgot who Iria was, though.

It's (something akin to) Swedish. Sigrid herself has an accent coming from norwegian/swedish, I have not determined that.

Seeing how Beskanti is a world unknown to the rest of Mid and even Earth, I can't "define" their languages by existing ones, but I made some sort of hybrid of what I wanted.

A rather big human error. I mistook Arc-en-Ciel for the Arthra and didn't know Chrono even commanded another ship.

Changing to the Claudia, which is canon standard.

Post Fic Bunnies: Laguna and Vice

*Falls out of the LURK!*

Ack, gotta work on that landing. Anyways, sorry, but this is pretty much a repost of my prospectus from over in the Relationships thread...which is presently going through another floog storm, so I figured I'd try to shop it here.

Here's the idea:

Laguna and Vice, 'cause I honestly wanna hear some theories about those two. Best of my knowledge, there was nothing about Vice's parents or family mentioned at all in the show. Shoot, Laguna practically came out of left field, so there is a lot you could do with the two characters leading up to the Sniping Incident.

For starters, I don't think there's any concrete info on Vice's background, so it wouldn't be stretch at all to make him a "bad boy" from birth (the voice actor helps). Being an orphan only spurned this further, and seeing how he'd never be able to quite fit in as a model citizen (getting told this by a pissed off, zealous preacher didn't help either -- hence "Vice"), he figured being a hotshot in the Bureau was a good way as any to get out of the slums and make a name for himself. Getting into the sniping program only helped to enhance his image per say.

Now, years down the line later, here comes the kicker, which brings us into Jousei / Clannad territory, that is the single bachelor raising up a kid by himself: Laguna enters the picture.

I guess, it's assumed she's blood related, but it doesn't hurt either, if she isn't. She could have been some waif in some failed state, a warzone, or just out in the streets, with her own circumstances, picked up by his folks as a surrogate daughter. But can you imagine what this little tornado is going to do to Bad Boy Vice? In fact, the fact she exists at all is a hint that his folks were still alive up to a point (or could still be). I'll leave it to you all to extrapolate.

Bottom line, there is a lot of fun and drama to be had here. Is he going to do the right thing and clean up his image into something of a sorta role model? Or is he going to need a kick to the pants before he gets his priorities straight? Plus, there is Laguna's side of the story too.

Thus, it makes the inevitable tragedy all the more dramatic.

As far as resolution goes, well, you could take the easy way out and go by cannon, which somehow the situation was resolved offscreen, I believe. On the other hand, there is potential to turn this into some pretty GAR / RAG / Metal Gear Solid / Tista / Black Lagoon messed up, epic stuff.

That's pretty much my pitch. Let's see what you all got or what is cannon for that matter.

*Is swallowed by the LURK!*

On that note crack challenge for you all if you're not aware of what FML is then google it. You challenge is to write an FML for one of the Nanoha characters. We need a whole collection people. Good luck and Hayate bless you.

Since I'd already written some crack this morning, I'm posting it instead of responding to Shiny's challenge. At least it has Zaffy...

This was inspired by the fact that my wife and I did some heavy spring cleaning in our apartment this past weekend. Well, mostly her, honestly, but to be fair it was almost entirely her stuff being sorted, moved, repacked, and put away. I was...the mule.
