Re: Ms. Vampire Who Lives in my Neighborhood Discussion

When I first saw this I had a sneaking suspicion it was just spam (OP reads like ad copy, and the poster never came back to actually participate in any discussion). But my first attempt at googling didn't turn anything up, and since I don't see any link in the original post I didn't see what the ben...

Re: [1541] Something to say to you

At present, Ping is "playing" like 10 different routes right now: Piro, Miho, Junko, Largo, etc. My understanding was that the SEVS doesn't "play a route", but provides routes for the owner / player to play. It's true though that she's been shifting from user to user trying to get them to "play" wi...

Aaand... this is why any fan summary is doomed to, well, I hate to use the "f" word, but... let's say "non-success". :( No two fans will ever have summaries that overlap in any significant way.

Are the archives down?

I have noticed since about a week or two ago that I couldn't get to the archives . It just gives a "timed out" message. This happens on both my laptop and phone so I'm guessing it's not just me. I just wanted to ask if mods / admins were aware of the issue. (If the answer is "we are, but it's relati...

Re: [1541] Something to say to you

Piro is getting some notoriety. I wonder if he is going to start generating stories? Maybe MT the comic is Piro's way of generating story power for himself. He is definitely in the thick of things as far as the Story (or Stories?) is concerned. What's really amazing is how much those "things", or a...

However, by tightening the controls on the Idol they very likely can also keep the MG's contained to a point, edit the story and you eventually have the ASF where the CA's always end up for "treatment" Yeah, one way or another, it always ends up at the same "offer you can't refuse": "Throw me the i...

Re: [1541] Something to say to you

I think it's that the analogue provides the Story (or the story archetype) for the magical girl, idol, or other (like Kotone) to be a character in. That certainly makes sense. I get the impression though that something more concrete has to be involved; Miho hints (frustratingly vaguely but watcha g...

Miho has a lot of enemies. But hopefully is gaining a few friends this time around. (Even more hopefully, in a way that would not subject said friends to the "people that love her die" problem.)

Re: [1540] alone?

You were right :) and so was Luminaut :) Well "someone else" was still only my 3rd choice (behind "Miho herself" and "Ririka"). I was building up to saying that Liminaut's guess of Moeko seemed a bit more likely to me than an Endgames character (Pirogoeth or Miro or whoever), but 1541 came up in th...

Those who said she was the real Moeko appear to be correct. *passes out cookies and internet points*
Rereading the 1540 thread, I believe Liminaut gets first pick of the cookies on that one.

do we have a picture of Miho & Piro's kid in Endgames? The little boy with the long hair in the middle of panel 4 [1345] . I never noticed that kid before. I was about to say I didn't see anything in-comic to indicate it's a boy, let alone Pirogoeth's... but now I see the transcript mentions an als...

Re: [1540] alone?

Moeko makes sense but the hair doesn't match... Except Liminaut I believe is talking about the actual Moeko, whom we haven't seen at all before this, not the "representation" played by Erika (which we have seen in various forms). We've had explicit reference recently of Stability making changes, ev...
