Re: Fan-made Summary - Story - chapter 11 : Remanence v3

See this is the problem... my goal is/originally was to condense to something, that would fit with style of the story page. So I'm still way, way off... by those standards. Mainly through length. Most effort I've taken is to try to identify where a story 'node' is (when the characters' threads are h...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

We'll find out for sure when Junpei and Yaku get there, I imagine. But I'm with NinjaDefenestrator, I think Ninjagrrl is Junpei's grandma. Well what about [1485]#8 ? Maybe ninja women don't use makeup (for it may have bad effect on skin when one wears a face mask all the time)... but I doubt any se...

Re: [1509] - "the floor is lava"

Also, regarding the room, what happens to people’s clothes once they’ve removed them in a frenzy of sexual arousal? How many guests have been stuck naked in there, waiting for staff to bring them new clothes because the old ones burned up and the guests can’t leave the room otherwise? I know, right...

Time gets extra nebulous here, since Fred jumps between scenes a lot and so much happens at once. Junpei leaves Miho at the ninja compound; Miho talks with Ninja Grandma; Yuki re-enters the picture and finds Mrs. Kobayashi just as Largo and Erika have cleared out the worst of the horde; Mrs. Kobaya...

The burning floor is not a problem, as it would be totally self-cleansing, lol, but I would not appreciate having to use bedlinen and upholstery made of asbestos :) and burning off my and my date's clothes... Also AC would kill the entire hotel's profits biiiiig time... and insurance.... moh dia.

Also, I notice that Kimiko is calling him "Piro" now, rather than "Piro-san".
She did do that too in 1504.

Re: Fan-made Summary - Story - chapter 11 : Remanence v3

Right... I think I saw it too much from the protagonist (Kimiko's) POV. From that perspective, it certainly looks like 'i almost killed her'... Cause she has no idea what was going on. I'll think of rewording. Thanks ... This though may be painful because the part about shoving Miho against the door...
