Re: [1559] Be my eyes

Ha, you should have seen Dog Soldier back in the day. Invisigoth is practically a "nuthugger" (Dog Soldier's term of art for Largo fans :D) by comparison. And yes, I was back then occasionally guilty of tweaking in response by pointing out the impressive technical things that Largo did do right (the...

Re: [filk] largo's broken dreams on wonderwall

I really wish someone out there will find me It needs to be either "wish someone... would find me", or "hope someone... will find me." But having said that I can produce no explanation of why that is the case, which I find deeply shameful, my apologies. :( I could mumble something vague about the i...

Especially if, as some have speculated, Stability are the ones keeping her in a coma in the first place (out of fear of her "catastrophic-grade" capabilities).

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

How was Largo supposed to "help"? Piro found out, that the person he thought of calling, was Largo... to which Miho said, yeah go ahead, call him... and explains, why of all people Largo would have been the one to be able to help. Again, I think a distinction needs to be made between "marginally be...

Re: [1559] Be my eyes

So she may well be well qualified to describe what she's seeing to Largo...not sure that's really a good idea :D Oh of course, I certainly wasn't questioning Erika's capabilities there. :lol: the bath house scene - where Piro and Miho needed Largo but he was away... Uh, come again for Big Fudge? Ho...

Re: One WIP Twitch thread to rule them all [SPOILERS]

But I did say back in the 1533 thread that when the English version comes out, they absolutely need to have Kari Wahlgren do the voice of Miho. Surely someone Irish? It'd be rude not to... Kari-dono => btdt (More seriously, note that Miho was clearly not allowing any noticeable "Irish accent" to bl...

Largo really isn't helping at all
[1556] Is that even a question?
My understanding of Invisigoth's comment was that there is a difference between offering to help and actually helping (true in general of course but especially so in Largo's case ;)).

Poor Erika! And BTW Largo really isn't helping at all Was he expected to? :lol: But yeah, Erika may very well interpret his "Describe what you see!" quite differently from what he intended. (THWACK "I'm not describing THOSE, you idiot!" "Uh, those WHAT? What the heck are we talking about?")

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

I think I would prefer the Richter scale for this sort of devastation... Richter is also a log scale (an increase of one "point" means a 10-times increase in intensity, not a linear increase), and thus a special case of what I was talking about generally. More specifically, I would expect the Spark...

@Zandra: *that* sounds like something that has ‘Largo’ written all over it. This time, if what you say comes true, he may actually remain innocent.

=)
Also keep in mind it's a log scale. If a pair of Category 5 Magical Girls has a fight, that's a Category 25 catastrophe (not just 10 :shock:).

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

As to whether or not Erika is aware of real magical girls... let's put it this way. One of the reasons she's come to like Largo so much is because he is the only person she's met who sees the same world she does. Sure there are plenty of clues in that (as well as lots of other :D) directions, I cer...

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

I think she does. Erika seems to know Meimi reasonably well, and certainly knows about Meimi's five-fingered-discounts [673] . That's not enough by itself to say Erika knows about real magical girls, but I think it makes it a strong possibility. That's about where I am too. That's a good point abou...

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

I am very curious what "the girl who inspired the whole 'Girl Phase' story" unpacks to in Erika's head. Does she actually know of the existence of real Magical Girls? I've wondered about that since the conversation outside the hospital just before Ririka keeled over, and the current scene is really ...

The actual work hours took Fred away from MT stuff, and the split of the morning and afternoon runs (as well as meetings and other special runs) broke up his schedule and made it harder to get stretches of drawing and other things in.

Re: Confessions of a beginner translator

Here is why... And why I call this 'pulling a Winnie'. We all know Winnie the Pooh right? It's not easy to get its gender right. The author uses male forms of pronouns with the female name. That's actually lampshaded in the original work. There's a scene, I believe in the introduction to one of the...
