Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Well more precisely we know that in 1240 Ibara says she's the source of a particularly potent and enduring story type. So, is he correct, or, how correct is he. ??? We also have seen that all three of those guys are at least a bit off in what they know/think/think they know. That Ed says she's the r...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Maybe there have been over time some hints clues chatter suggestions we remember somewhat coming from out-of-story, for whatever that's worth. There's apparently nothing specific in story that establishes there isn't at least one more Analogue around. Which then also there's nothing specific in stor...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Difficult to tell given the getup in 639 and the 14 year rw art style changes between that and 1473 certainly. But yes, aside from how Junpei refers etc to Head Ninja, whoever that is seems taller and larger than Junpei is. The eyes don't seem the same as our claimed Clan Leader Ninja either. Or may...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Has Tohya Miho been vanished without her wanting to be, by forces and mechanisms more powerful than the real thing, in whatever state it is in right now. However the Ninja Clan Matriarch and Yakugashi fit into it all. Yet, apparently this is simply only the sort of thing that happens when you stash ...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

I second those notions. ^^ Has the apparent current top Ninja of this clan taken it upon herself (and by extension everyone else who is within her control, even if that doesn't include those who work for head ninja and stability directly or whatever Junpei's deal is) to capture a tween. One who plac...

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

What it looks like, mostly. At this moment in time, both the bound Yaku and restrained Miho are being absconded by Ninja, Yaku slowly and Miho quickly, on the orders of the clan matriarch. Yaku is going to help the clan leader determine why a descendant of an existing adversary/target has designs up...

It's a more brief form of ta-ta. (informal early 1800s unknown origin, and so going by the language-speaking rule could mean she is actually English) Goodbye, toodles, l8rz.

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

It is an shrubbery. Although come to think of it, foxes taking on human form can look like anything they want to allegedly, so why not Ninja doing the same sort of thing. Unless this is like the beef with Pirates. Or how much Mugi's family is hybrid versus straight up old school mystical magical leg...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

One might imagine the real thing is no role. Whatever anyone thinks about Miho appears to be all about their opinions and perceptions, but she's clearly been often able to match those expectations, be that purpose or accident, towards a goal or otherwise. So it's probably not so odd to believe that ...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

Might seem being dismissive wouldn't work, especially if as appears true Miho is only vulnerable when she wants to seem so. When it all looks real it's difficult to tell when it isn't, might be the way to put it. In a lot of ways it continues to smell like a setup. This hasn't been the first time En...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Sure this could be something inside something else, story-wise. Aside from the true virtuality in a mundane sense; as we probably know, the causes exist inside the pathways of the authors, which then become effects to the observers. The whole process of creating and consuming, a frequent subject ins...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

Whoever she is, she's got at least three ninja that she's in command of or that work for her. And there's some unfinished business which apparently has to do with Yaku or her family (but not those who are at the love hotel, yet?) or foxpeople in general or those from Himeji, or people getting too fa...

Which they both turned out less dead (or less inclined to remain that way) than one might expect. Although one never really knows what exactly goes on behind the scenes, most of the time. At least with Ed though there was a view of or a notion of the tech that undeaded him. Then there's Largo, who s...

Re: [1527] Nature of the relationship

Yaku did call and Junpei did arrive, but that was at hospital and before, when it seemed to fit better. Here, if you've got a ninja already (whoever and however old Enjii actually is) and Miho (if she still has powers) is also with you, what else would you need. Assuming anyone really wants to or ne...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Certainly an author doesn't need to have a fully developed background or even any answers at all before something happens, regardless if the characters are guiding it to some extent or not. The Horde seems scary, but so far hasn't as far as we've seen killed anyone. Maybe at the school that was luck...

I can't imagine any reason why should would bother going along with Yuki's kidnapping of her if she could avoid it. Just because we can't think of one reason, doesn't mean she can't think of many. Or she doesn't need to, she knows them or they just are. Maybe Miho just couldn't avoid doing whatever...

It's not just the lack of infor...
