Comment on Next steps...

  1. This scenario is what initially triggered by desire to write, so I hope that the remaining chapters will be delivering on the premise I set out for myself.

    Since you say "from unexpected perspectives", may I enquire as to what exatcly you mean? I'm curious to say the least on what it might be.

    1. I apologize for the delay in my response to your question. My big summer project just wrapped.

      By unexpected perspectives I mean I like how you seem to get an outsider looking in view of Nico and Maki sometimes. The first chapter of this, where neither appeared set a nice level of suspense and intrigue. In another of your fics, I was struck by the scene of Maki on the train in clothes that set off a 'does she belong here' alarm in the staff...I appreciate details like that that help build the world around the main characters.

      1. No need to apologize. I hope the bard provided entertainment for troop and audience alike. When I was in Uni friends of mine put up various plays in the outdoors, Midsummer was one of them. Fond memories.

        Ahh, I see what you mean. Though I think it has more with my inexperience as a fiction writer to do and my understanding of Japanese culture, both from personal observations on site and other sources. I'm trying to interlace the story with places and locations that I have visited myself in order to ground it.

        1. I've never believed 'inexperience' in things like writing is a drawback. It's an opportunity for a fresh perspective and I'm excited to see what further insights you've gleaned into Japanese culture.

          1. I shall certainly try my best to anchor as much as I can. There is something coming in the later chapters that is a mirror of a trip I/we took in Japan last year. True magic in a place on earth. :)
