Re: CG 1509 The Floor is Lava

Having looked at it, I wonder if someone could change the hue a little bit because this looks like the volcano is getting colder (for afterwards)... Need orange on the floor, and the lava stream, that hue of red that is now on the floor, on the walls, and more vivid red on upholstery and bedding... ...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

What exactly Miho was thinking in 1121/1122, or if those plans changed or not, is a mystery. Since she didn't, the question of if Miho would have stayed at the ASF forever will have to remain unanswered. Likewise, we don't know yet if a Miho story can only end with her or others dying, since nobody...

Re: The Visual Novel

Yes but we don't know that for sure and how much was used - I saw somewhere a construct like 'supported himself and family' when he had little time to do comic and art for sale - does not mean he used ALL of it. TLI and negative bias, hello ? Well considering nothing much with the game has been pro...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Miho was playing with Piro and Largo, expecting them to lose. Then Largo started "winning" and Miho changed her mind and decided she wanted Piro to win too. This is when she makes the comment "he's not going to lose, but he's not going to win either" and she decides to take action so that Piro can ...

[Fanfic] Saved - A Megatokyo Story - Chapter 6 - Blind Summit

Cathal sat in a chair in his room, looking out of the window, recollecting scenes from the day gone by. It actually did not take long, from the estate house, just a couple of hours by horse, to reach the top of the mountain. There was a terrific vista opening to anyone who climbed: ocean as far as t...

Re: The Visual Novel

Fred mentioned financial concerns from what I saw on the rants, a total of one time. You are trying to give it more meaning than it deserves - he was sick, then he got better, and then he wanted to make up for the lost value by embarking on something new - that is what I see as an outsider. Wanted t...

Me neither (the team were telling what was up with the VN project ever since, so it's not just Fred's word) that's why the second part of the timeline is also important.

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

I don't really think Piro is ready to accept going back to Miho yet. He's barely nursed his emotional state back to being sort-of normal (from not being able to even talk to school girls at the start of the comic, to surviving the Miho-death scene now, with some apparent composure) (or more importan...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Nothing personal, but this is just me wanting the "poor schmuck" to win something for a change in terms of personal relationships. I suppose I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic in a sense. Can't fault me for that now, can you? The problem here is that Fred is determined that Piro should never 'win' in...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Hmm, the repeated reference to the children's game ('floor is lava') and Kimiko being playful, is turning Piro remarkably child-like (the second-to-last panel, is it me, or Piro's proportions there resemble a pre-teen boy? The kind of teen- pre-teen that does not have all the men's hormones yet, and...

Re: Fan-made summary - Story - Chapter 12 : Broken [stub] v3.1

I am not trying to anticipate the story; It's more like I am trying to 'report' on what happened (past tense deliberate) and condense to give an idea of the story plot node moments; But I try to make the effort to not include too many details, it isn't a re-telling of the story; If anything, more co...

Re: [1510] I guess I'll have to stop...

Totally different interpretation: Comparing panel 5 with panel 4 , you can see that PIro's hand in panel 5 wanders under the dress of Kimiko; [ quote comic=1475 ] What's wrong with you that you'd even think that [ /quote] ;) In panel 4, he has hands apart at some distance from her thighs; in panel ...

Re: The Visual Novel

Well that is my point... The health issues don't just simply go away, therefore there's no point dwelling about them over and over. They are more than just an eater of time, they are an emotional drain. Repeatedly dwelling into that territory with such questions is just terrible. So unless they post...

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

We saw what the Horde managed to do to Piro between the moment when he and Miho disappeared in it, to when Piro emerged back from the piles of rubble.. torn off jacket, damaged shirt, no tie, scraped, bruised, nearly destroyed clothing. Luckily Yuki did pull a 'I hate you' scene convincing enough, t...
