If a coma patient's back is red it usually means the staff need to turn them more often.
Or use sheets with more color-fast dye.

Re: [1560] A story that needs to be put away

So, to clarify, Moeko wants Erika to resume being an idol in order to finish Girl Phase so that Moeko herself can die peacefully, right? That's my take on it. Interestingly, Moeko seems to be a bit mixed up about "out there". It kind of seems that shed doesn't have a well defined sense of where the...

Re: [filk] Provisional lover

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

That said, I think you captured the tenor of Ping's interactions with Piro fairly well. I found your lyrics somewhat sad and wistful and sweet.

Re: [1554] the parts needed

Wow, you guys are shitting on Ping now too? I am pretty done here with repeating myself about how dismissive and denigrating this line is to the characters, so this will be my last post this thread. But as bad as that was in Junko's direction, for Ping it is pretty much crossing into puppy-kicking ...

Re: [1553] Oops

There's a good chance that Ashe cannot bear children and as for surgical correction...well she's kitsune so odds are slim to none that there's even been research into something like that. Oh well, maybe if she'd consent to become an experimental subject.... If a kitsune's middle and inner ears aren...

Re: [1553] Oops

This is perhaps a bit off topic, but I'm wondering about how well Ashe actually hears, or doesn't.... She's been referred to as deaf, by Megumi a comic or two ago, but a few pages before, Fred drew the comic in such a way as to suggest that Ashe can hear voices, but can't make sense of them. Betwee...

Re: [1552] All of either of them

She does use JSL according to Fred in a stream but whether the "snapshots" of sign we get to see in each frame actually translates over to a genuine JSL word (or part of one) I couldn't tell you, I don't know the first thing about either language. Well, I only took one semester of ASL, but in frame...

Re: [1552] All of either of them

Okay, I've been wondering this for a while, but is Ashe signing in ASL (American Sign Language)? From what I've heard, the Japanese have their own totally different sign language. Or is this something like the joke where Junpei still uses weird grammar even when speaking in Japanese, and she's actua...

Re: [1551] A little rough

That said, the forever alone curse is not a part of standard mythology for kitsune lore, but it really is a undefined curse that most kitsune women suffer from but it's hard to say if it's a curse, it's part of behavioral nature of these girls, maybe it's part of the stigma that comes from being di...

In fact, the only real reason shes sorta in on the cousin loop is because grams worked for the brothel when sh...

I believe her medical device is an dual function ICD which can be pretty rough given that her heart may be fighting the defibrillation in an effort to correct back to her original story. I vote for the dual function ICD too. Combination pacemaker and defibrillator. So it keeps her from dying. Still...

Who would even do that? Deliberately walk through the door on someone you know and like potentially having sex with someo...

Miho. (At Megagamers ostensibly to confront Piro, interacts with Yuki Piro Ping Erika & otaku.) The other, between the 'diner rescue' and the CoE, with Dom Kimiko & Piro on phone. The examples of what she's doing often includes either Piro or Largo (even if only indirectly) but not always, the only...

Yuuji didn’t put anything on Yuki’s chair during that dinner. I don’t think he even noticed she was gone. Yuki initially suspects her brother, but then she sees her mom looking at her.

Re: [1516] A New Story

What Yaku doesn't realize is that her mother loves Miho *because* Miho's story makes her sad. If the story didn't make her feel sad, then Miho would probably not be a part of Mugi's life. I'm not so sure about that. Mugi seems more like a personal friend than the horde in general. Although she's ce...

I sincerely doubt Miho was in any danger. You don't talk like that to someone if you really plan to kill them.

How figurative was that story told to Kimiko. How literal. How much metaphor and random was there or not.
