Re: [1515] Reset?

In this setting, I don't think we're ever going to 'lose' the Miho type of a story... even if only to become an example of how not to live your life. That's the point, actually. The Story is still there. Does it need an Analogue? If it can't have Miho, who will it take? I really hope Kimiko doesn't...

As many times as you've used those exact words, I'm half-wondering: Do you have a certain... special... something in your basement with a nameplate of "Foul Miho". :? :ninja: How do you know about that stuffed ducky with the letters: M,I,H, and O crudely stitched upon its left breast?

She would have probably made tea spiked with fast acting poison to send foul Miho off to the long goodnight.

Re: [1515] Reset?

Yeah, only Grandmother would get to be lazy like that regarding an emergency termination order. I get the feeling that she’s more entertained by the whole situation than concerned. For maximum trolling, we might never find out if NinjaGrrl really is Grandma or not. Respectively: Excellent points. "...

Re: [1515] Reset?

It looks increasingly likely that my speculation way back when is accurate: Kunoichi-san is grandma, not imouto. (1471)

Edit: And it would be in keeping with the anime tradition of 400-year-olds looking like they're 14-year-olds.

Doing anything more than heavy petting in the shower is pretty much impossible without some 'assistance'. The movies make it out to be far, far less awkward than it is in reality :P Sez you!

Welcome to "romantic tension". :lol:
I think Kimiko's romantic tension is giving Fred a different kind of tension... headaches. :cry:

And some of the readers seem to be getting Rocky-Horror-style dynamic tension. (^_~)

As much as I wish it weren't so, I think things are still very much up in the air. 1) Never underestimate the power of hormones in a guy.

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

Out of curiosity: Who is the intended audience for these summaries?

It's just that it occurs to me that condensing everything down to what we know now, as opposed to what we knew at the time we were reading a given comic, might do a disservice to people who haven't read it sequentially yet.

...Kimiko was playing the part of Miho, and that part included sex scenes. Piro could pick up on this on a somewhat subliminal level... I can only guess... :?

Go, MTSD! Most movie theatres don't manage to get this much projection going on. (^_~) Kimi has a touch of the manic overly-attached girlfriend about her. Not sure if that is the 'acting', or the fact that they are both rolling down a hill here and not much is going to stop them falling. Did someone...

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

should we call this strange melange of Kimiko and Miho "Kimiho"? Yeah, we had settled on that back when Kimiko first put on the toner. I had suggested Mimiko at first (because mimic), but everybody else seemed to like Kimiho better, which is good too. But now it looks like she's going to wash out t...

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

Kimiko's performance is for the horde, and maybe for herself in some ways. But Piro doesn't see her as Miho for a single second. That is part of his confusion, and why he's not actively responding to her. My apologies to every woman who's been unfairly judged as "immoral" the moment she asserts her...

My hair is black, so my experience getting a faceful of toner isn't enlightening... but I'd note for the record that toner gets electrostatically attracted to the paper during printing. Anyone who's tried to comb their hair on a dry winter day can attest that Kimiko may have a LOT of fun trying to g...

Streaming speed

Vaguely MT-related: Does anyone else who's stuck with Comcrasht see a similar pattern for upload speed (green-er line) when they run the speed test at https://sourceforge.net/speedtest? Just wondering if it could be why the livestreams are sometimes a bit wonky.
