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

@Darrin, according to Fred during discussions in Twitch attempts to keep Moeko's wand away from her have all failed. Ha, I actually called something for a change? Awesome. :lol: :lol: Also all attempts to dress her have failed as well. the only thing covering her is the bed sheet. Try to dress her ...

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 ...

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

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. I linked to this and this a few times on the twitch channel; I k...

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...

Re: [1556] A magical girl transformation sequence

I like how Erika is teasing Largo knowing full well that he is almost certainly completely ignorant of the various anime tropes with which she is teasing him. (And probably knowing full well that even if Piro sat him down and tried to explain said tropes, Largo would be bored in about twelve seconds...

I was certainly horrible at making any kinds of predictions on the old forms, so I have tried to steer clear of that myself (I have maybe gotten slightly better at making small-scale predictions :lol: but that's maybe just because of trying to make a lot fewer).

My problem with most filks is that I don't recognize the original song.
