This makes me think you have a critical misunderstanding of Civ4's game mechanics... do you think that cottages only produce gold?

That... actually makes a lot of sense based on what I saw. No wonder it didn't have (hardly) any infrastructure. Losing a city to the barbs sucks.

Okay I will post an horror story as a test using my skills as a translator:

(female Narrator Obviously not Lion)
The following story was told to my mother.My mother has a friend that is a nurse and she was the one that told the story to my mother.

Seven years ago Mariana ( the name of the nurse that is friend of my mother) was on her night shift on the hospital and suddenly one patient who was a woman
arrived with her daughter. The woman only had a strong stomachache,since the pain didn't go away, she had to be hospitalized.

And she stayed there for 4 days. Her daughter sleeped with her all the nights.
(By the way, this hospital have rooms with curtains that separate rooms, but I dont why they hospitalized her in a room that had walls and doors.and the door had a round hole with a transparent crystal.)

Anyway, the old lady started to get worse with her stomachache. on the fourth night
both the daughter and the woman went to sleep, the girl on the floor and the woman
on an hospital bed.(The hospital bed was a little high)

In the early morning, the daughter started to hear some knockings, then she felt that a hand was pressing her shoulder. The girl reacted and it was the hand of her mother, The mother pointed to the crystal of the door and opened her mouth as if she wanted to scream but couldn't.

The girl looked at the cristal and said that she saw a man wearing black with a white pale skin and he was like mocking her,but what amazed her was that He didn't have eyes. The girl said that she started screaming and the man dissapeared. The nurses came to the room...and the woman started to felt even more sick...the morning after that the woman died.

This is a true story, since the girl went with psychologists and said that she couldn't overcome the death of her mother and that she saw the devil.

I agree. The world is wonderful.

There is nothing wrong with world; "we" who have a problem.

There are natural cataclisms. Fine. We can help the homeless.

There are preconception. Fine. We can deal with our preconception and treat people more fairly.

There are violence and crimes. Fine. We can setting our lives in a righteous way and give the example for people around us.

To change the world, we need start by changing ourselves, seeing his wonders and believing in the future.

Sorry if I was too pedantic. But that's what I believe.

You mean... "insanity"? Perhaps "madness"?

I believe hope has kept men sane since the beginning of time. Because, sometimes, the only thing that led them to madness was the logical pessimism...

I also believe, to change the world, it requires eras, not years. No matter how many people we have working together, it is always a work in progress.

It is the work that I run now and what I'll teach my children, so they will can teach their children and so forth.

If hope is madness, perhaps be mad is the only thing that can protect ourselves from a lethal ans suicidal sanity.

Of course, some are just particular thoughts. I'm always open to discussion and review these concepts.

Again, sorry if I was too pedantic.

I meant "delusional" as those two have become too diluted in meaning nowadays, but yes.

Of course, you have delusion at both ends of the scale. I'm one of types Ange would view as an cynical teen who needs to grow up, as that mentality seems related to a quotation she posted once that targets youth and cynicism specifically, but I'm still seeing things everywhere.

I can not judge that.

Everything I can say is there is more than simple cynicism.

There is a social tendency since the French Revolution, going off to the concept of society to Adam Smith, the publication of "The Wealth of Nations" and the introduction of the concept of self-interest, where things get complicated and culminate today.

And no, I'm not a communist/marxist/socialist.

I, too, am determined to dislike it. Misha seems to be cheerful and likeable enough, though, so I wanted to give it a read.

The writing is a bit awkward at times, with such descriptions as "I briskly walk through the gate", in that it seems a weird thing to narrate. It's not exactly jarring or bad, but I feel such things are always a little awkward.

So far so good, with a few things that felt cleverly written to me. It's not as bad as I'd initially thought crippled girl porn would be.

Honestly, there are a couple of choices like that, but it's not quite as bad as it was in the preview version of act one (wherein there was an infamous choice of "I'm fine" which would result in a huge rant from the MC telling off the girls that put you on a bad end upon picking).

I'll probably end up writing a scathing review of its writing when I'm done. "Misha signs for her to bail her out"... and the other day he had no clue of sign language whatsoever. It's tiny mistakes like these that rattle, even if it's also cleverly written on the other side.

How cruel, asking a maiden in love to criticise her true love's posts! Wait, you meant your own, not kami-chama's? B, baka anon-moe.

It's not that bad really. The first sentence is a bit awkward (use "only to see the taskmaster" instead of "just to see"), and "grits his own teeth" is redundant given he can't really grit someone else's teeth. The ranger attacks twice, too; when using "and" without comma, you carry over the subject of the previous sentence if you specify no new one.

So, "The ranger grits his teeth and the ranger attacks the trapped dwarf twice", but you are permitted to omit "the ranger" from the second clause. In this case, you still carry over the form.

My writing is a bit, well... To tell the truth, I haven't actually written anything in a fair while. On top of that, my writing style is littered with grammatical errors and a tendency towards somewhat erratic pacing, about the only positive thing about my writing style is that it's unique and fairly distinctive. I was always complimented on it back in high school, but I did end up dropping out (not to mention English was my weakest subject in the first place), so those compliments are pretty empty in retrospect.

I think the last person to read a sample of my writing was Kinjo, and that was something of a collaborative short story between myself and someone else. Hilariously, almost every error that had been picked out was part of what I had written.

I was waiting for someone to mention this. So far /seacats/ has only seen my Umineko writing. The most obvious piece of writing I could share would be my latest VN which is currently 30K words long, but with lack of images and sound and gaping holes in the script I don't think it would be wise to publicize any of it yet.

Other than that I've thought about writing short stories from time to time. I've even started jotting down my thoughts whenever I come up with an interesting topic. Too many of my thoughts used to get lost before I could write them down, but I'm getting better at saving them for others to read at a later time.

You flatter me, fair lass.

Well, I had a bit of trouble keeping up with his noir-esque writing style at the time, especially considering I hadn't written much of anything for months prior to that, so keeping the story flowing was difficult without making a few errors here and there.
I'd say I was overall satisfied with it though, it was an interesting collaboration and a good way to kill an hour or two of free time.

Mine becomes a roller coaster. It goes up a little, then drops a chuck, then mellows out, then repeats, and then comes back around slightly lower than before.

Example from my short story. 7,600 - 7,800 - 7,900 - 6,900 - 7,250 - 7,000 - 7,600 - 7,450.

You'll find that the story's precisely against the romanticised idea of love. The protagonist asks the girl if she loves him, and she responds with, "No, love is only possible between family". What follows is the two going on a date that is not a date, and her inviting him to sleep over. They are never explicitly said to be in love, they know each other well and the girl makes it clear that she does not love him. And still it is a story of love.

I'm most interested in weaknesses due to writing it on a whim in four instalments, so I'll show it to you once I finish joining it together into one VN.

I would've liked to present you the writing in a .doc, but unfortunately I wrote it while at my brother's place, and his files aren't available to me so easily. Never did keep a back-up since I didn't think it'd go anywhere.

It's kind of odd, I don't see myself as much of a writer either, but I've always liked to write stories. When I was little, before I knew how to write I'd tell my parents stories and have them write down the words on paper for me. Visual novels seem to be the perfect medium for me, considering I like to write and have a passion for programming games, two things which a lot of people don't have the motivation to learn.

Well, I hope not. I think my story might actually suffer a bit from "fluff" that I'm just using to increase the word count (a trick I learned from Ryu) although I hope that was mostly just in the beginning chapters. I've been writing them all out of order. Whenever inspiration strikes me for a certain chapter I'll go right to it. I just hope I can connect the dots smoothly and revise that "fluff" so it's more interesting to read. After all if it's not fun for me to write then it's not fun for anyone to read.

Speaking of Christmas stories I wrote a pretty dark/depressing one only about 1,500 words long. Should I post it?

All the VN's I've read currently have been full of 'fluff' and are so in need of tightening. But I guess a reader for VN's doesn't mind things being stated over and over again in the same scene, being extremely wordy, and going around in circles just to make the scene longer, with points that are completely pointless.

I would say go ahead and post it, I'll read it at least.

I remember reading part of that before when you posted it on here actually, the concept seemed pretty interesting so I would quite like to read the rest. Do you plan to link the individual stories together so that they flow as one work, or instead divide it up into 'chapters' that tell different points of the same story? The latter would be easier I think, but for a short work the former would likely flow better.

I like psychological thriller works, but that reminds me that I never did actually read anything that you wrote. Mostly because it was Umineko fan-work and I'm not exactly a fan of Umineko itself, besides some of the music.
My preferred genre is actually cyberpunk/steampunk myself, though psychological works are interesting to me, and comedy is something that I love but am not very good at when writing.

Katawa Shoujo's tight enough, go read it!

Former, linking them together. "Different points" is weird since it's all a running story in segments of a 1,000 to 2,000 words, with the four parts together somehow coming up as 6500. That might expand as I write scenes to join them together (they're pretty tight so I don't need to write a lot) and remove some redundancy and repeats (the protagonist points out certain qualities to the girl in each segment).

Well, I wouldn't call this one in particular a thriller, but I do get your point. It's just dark and depressing really. I only hesitate to post it because I'd feel bad from reading it.

It's really something I need to work on. Word count impresses people, but if it's all a bunch of boring fluff then what good is it really doing there?

It was surprising to learn how many people here are interested in psychology. I like to understand things, and the human mind is one of the most complex things to attempt to understand. Works that really stretch your limits of thinking and change your perspective are really my favorites.

Well, I look forward to the finished product then, and if you'd like me to lend a hand in editing it then I'd be happy to be of service.

I somewhat agree, that's why I quite like cyberpunk works a lot. Have you ever seen that anime Texhnolyze? If you haven't, you definitely need to go and watch it at some point. No other work has ever moved me so much and managed to completely change my way of thinking before in my life. People say that the ending is incredibly depressing, but for me it was the one thing that raised me up out of my own many-years-long depression. Seeing the main character, Ichise's, drive to live, his overpowering will to survive no matter what, really spoke to me and made me change my entire outlook on life.

As for psychology, I have mixed feelings towards it. It's hilarious how impossibly stupid half of it is, how inaccurate it can be, how the entire field is littered with misconceptions and errors, but on the other hand the DSM handbook makes for some entertaining bedtime reading. Though, that's just my view on it as someone whom several psychiatrists have labelled "incurable through psychology/psychiatry" for various reasons, so it's just my bitter opinion on a flawed subject.

That short story was alright. Though rather than depressing, I'd say it's more frustrating for the girl's pointless stubbornness. If you've ever seen Grave of the Fireflies, it made me feel like that movie did, just frustration towards the character for being too stubborn, selfish and prideful. It was well-written though, I did like it.

Texhnolyze, huh? Never heard of it, but I'll look into it now. I've also been wanting to watch Grave of the Fireflies but keep forgetting.

I do agree with you that psychology can be so silly sometimes and interesting to read. Although now that I'm taking a class on it and learning it step by step it all seems to make more sense.

The silly thing is that it's mostly theoretical. I guess that's why it's mostly considered pseudoscience, but either way there's little to no proof for most of psychology. Just analyzing and interpreting things, but I find that to be really fun, so I don't mind at all.

Anyway glad you read the story, I find your comments on it to be pretty interesting.

The concept is interesting, and I'm not going to give an actual critique, because I don't think you want one/don't know if you do. And I don't want to give you one if it is not welcome.

But I will say a few things anyway. Where are the quotes when people talk?

Also, I think you should expand on the points it would give the writing and the overall message more power.

I didn't feel like writing quotes. I also thought it added to the style of it.

Which points? Either way I kind of want to expand on this in a later work, so I'd like to keep the theme a little more hidden until then.

But if you can find it, good for you.

Texhnolyze is one of those series that most people don't take much of an interest in, which is a shame because it's one of the few anime that I'd actually consider a "masterpiece" scenario-wise. It and Serial Experiments Lain sort of go hand-in-hand as well, so if you liked one then you're sure to enjoy the other.

>Where are the quotes when people talk?
To tell the truth, that caught my eye as well, but it was actually one of the things I quite liked about it. I've seen the technique used in writing before but I'm not sure if it has some kind of name, in my opinion it helps the reader dissociate from the characters and adds to the overall atmosphere of it. It seems like quotation marks would be an unnecessary addition in a story that doesn't have much talking to begin with if you ask me, but again that's just personal preference.

...I was fifty minutes thinking about what to say. The words just will not leave. I have nothing constructive to say. So I'll say what I feel.

I love it. It was beautiful.

I read the Notes as well. I agree. The ending is not sad. It may sound stupid, but I think the story continues. For each person who has to say something to someone special, this story continues. She did not finish reading the Visual Novel.

I have to say something to someone. Long ago I should have said that. But I was so immature and silly, so young. So stupid. Maybe my friendship with her is over years ago, but I certainly have to say those words.

Thank you for write it.

I see I understand, without quotes is fine in my opinion.

I think you misunderstood, what I meant by 'it would make the overall message more powerful'

What I meant by it was, the reader would get more impact I feel out of the story, (the sadness of the whole event) if the storytelling wasn't so distanced.

Well, it wasn't really you in particular but I felt that it might be coming across to some that the writing in KS was bad. Jyoji's comment comes to mind, and Rosa's response to one of your comments. I don't think it's either poor or fantastic, and I do think it's better than a lot of the Japanese VNs I read (though that may be the fault of the translation).

Heh, I think it's good that you're going for Shizune right away~ Honestly I think I might have liked her route less if I had read one of the others before it, because it's very different~

Well, I never much was one to take an interest in paintings, and most modern art just confuses me as to how anyone who isn't blind could possibly think it's good anyway, so art critics disappearing would make little difference to me really.
Of course, the inverse also applies that somebody who is good at writing won't necessarily make a very good critic. Being able to produce high quality works doesn't necessarily imply the ability to recognise other high quality works; likewise, being able to recognise works of high quality doesn't mean that one has the ability to produce works of similar quality.
>> No. 38066 edit
Because I've seen these critics do what critize, and it's not all that better. It might even be worse. But at this point, I'm not even talking about writing, but things in general.

i.e. Your sibling comes in and sees you draw. They say "It's nice, but it's not like [insert anime/manga here]"
I'll agree to that, though I've seen a little less of this inverse circumstance.

When a person criticizes something as being as being terrible, then going on to say that their own work is much better even when it really isn't, then that certainly is a problem. Other than that, I think it's fine for someone to point out the flaws in something so long as they recognise that their own work isn't much better, or even if it's a lot worse as the case might sometimes be.
Well, that's what I think about it anyway.
>> No. 38068 edit
Sometimes they don't. They just freely tell them that they are terrible at it and never make an attempt to do their own stuff. Like movie critics.

Well, as long as they aren't too bad about it.

>> No. 38069 edit
But film critics criticise better than you do, so you're not qualified to criticise them. Moreover, by your own logic, as someone who hasn't shown himself to be a good writer, how can you claim anyone's work is bad?
