    AaronIsCrunchy got a reaction from Dergonu in '...and not a single thing of worth was said.' - 500 posts ^ ^   

    Given I'm pretty sure I've contributed next to nowt of worth in my 18 months here, I'm frankly amazed I've gotten to 500 posts in the first place. Since joining the forums, I've read the grand total of 13 VNs (which is way more than I thought, sadly), learnt the basics of the Japanese language and apparently, not much else. Here's to the next worthless 500!  /
    Just wanna ping a few people who have enriched my life since joining this place:
    @mitchhamilton - for being a beautiful human being  And for pictures. Aw yee.
    @DarkZedge - for your tireless work in enriching lives with neko goodness. 
    @Forgetful Frank - for making me think you were a new source of intelligent conversation to the world, and then comprehensively obliterating that misconception  Also because you make me laugh on a daily basis.
    @Kaguya - for making the 'list of 50 translated VNs' list that I found on Google that drew me here initially, and for being a well-informed grounder of chats when things get a bit too bizarre. Also, a sincere thanks for snapping me out of my self-pitying hole around a year ago.
    @VirginSmasher - for discussions about technical death metal and deathcore, which is always a +1 in my book.
    @Kawasumi - for being one of the first people I recall having a chat with on here, and for having an incredible taste in music.
    @Arcadeotic - For your deadpan Finnish wit, immeasurable patience and appreciation that Tsumiki is indeed best girl, I stoop to you.
    @Fred the Barber - You either post something interesting or you post something that's funny, and that's good enough for me. Sorry for my constant avatar changing.
    @Dergonu - I had you pegged as a beautiful, pure yuri lover, and then look what happened  You're glorious all the same though, and if you ever continue with your story, gimme a shout and I'll be happy to read through it!
    @KosakiFag - I suspect you may have actually been the very first person I properly conversed with on here, though to be honest my memory is shit. You've been a constant though, and a wonderful one at that. Also thank you for bringing Subway pr0n into my life, which will never cease to be hilarious.
    @HMN - for just being generally lovely.
    @Asonn - for just being generally salty. And lovely.
    @Flutterz - for being salty. And lovely. And for bringing moe into our lives.
    @Kiriririri - for being the moe in our lives.
    @madvanced - your linguistic prowess will likely never cease to amaze me. Also thank you for Nyoron, which is simply incredible.
     
    Shit, this was longer than I anticipated. If I've forgotten anybody that feels like they've been forgotten, shout at me and I'll write a nice sentence about you
    (Also, if anyone has any questions I'll answer them. Probably.)

    Aside from continuing the Grisaia series, the biggest one for me is Pigeon Blood, which I stumbled across one day playing the random VN game on vndb I so frequently play. It's yaoi horror with fine-as art and, supposedly, some really messed up ends.

    AaronIsCrunchy reacted to InvertMouse in Attending my dad's funeral this afternoon   
    Hi there everyone. A few of you may have heard that my dad has passed away this Monday from cardiac arrest. Never before have I felt so broken. It's like there's a hole in my heart that would never heal again.
    But after close to a week, I felt the healing process taking place. I can now smile again, and I no longer break into tears at random. When I reflect, my dad's passing has helped me grow so much in the span of three to five days. It's not at all worth the exchange, but now I hold Mum's hand a lot more, and the whole family is closer from the incident. My mind seems to have pushed all of Dad's flaws aside, so now he's turned into some kind of deity who I can always count on to watch over me. I've never been spiritual, but maybe it's all I have now to keep me sane.
    But as the title suggests, my dad's funeral is on this afternoon, and I'm so nervous about it. I haven't seen Dad's face since I left the hospital on Monday, and after the cremation ceremony tomorrow, I'll never get to see him again. Really scared to guess how I'll respond when I see him today. My wounds have at last begun to heal, but the funeral might tear those stitches open again, which is so tough to bear. I feel terrible for worrying about myself at a time like this, but I must own up to what's going through my mind. For now, I'm telling myself that the funeral should be a celebration of my dad's legacy, but once those doors open, my narrative will probably fly out the window.
    So yes, if anyone has any advice for me, I'd appreciate that so much. I'm up typing this at 3am because I really can't sleep, so maybe I'm a bit desperate. Of course, I'd be thankful for any good wishes you have for my dad as well. Just a lot of selfishness and confusion on my part.
    Thank you so much everyone.

    A'ight, here's my take on it.
    I'D PREFER IT IF YOU DROPPED THE JAPANESE THINGS
    Honestly, I think originality and cultural differences explored in VNs can only help to expand the medium. Why set something in Japan (or incorporate Japanese thingmies) when there's a wealth of things to be explored on your home turf?
    Basically, go for it

    I have to agree with most of the thread: if you're not from Japan, you probably shouldn't be writing about Japanese people. If you're from Spain, write about Spanish people. Don't do it because that's what you think I want to see, or even because it would be a pleasant change of pace (even though it really, seriously would; Highway Blossoms, as many problems as I had with it, was a breath of fresh air for its setting and some of its themes); do it because you'll almost certainly do a much better job with it.
    Honestly, when I see a western VN with a cast full of Japanese names, my immediate reaction is: "weeb; probably not interesting". If the creator is so stuck in the world of JP VNs that they can't even get their head out of that country, there's very, very little chance they have anything substantial to add in other areas. If enough people say good things about such a project, I'd certainly take a closer look and reassess that position, but the first impression left by a project like that is never a positive one, to me, and I have yet to see a case where that first impression was wrong.
    Unrelated, but I clicked the screenshot link after @Darklord Rooke said something about "a nice sensible longsword" and thought to myself, "That's not a longsword, that's a claymore," and felt a lovely jolt of smugness when I scrolled down to find the OP correcting both him and Kurisu. Me: 1. Errybody else: 0.

    Allow me to refute a recommendation: Konosora, or If My Heart Had Wings.
    Whilst it fits your parameters, its translation is terrible. It is highly recommended you wait for its retranslation to eventually finish.
    This is not me being picky. One of its routes was butchered to the point of being impossible to comprehend to any English reader.
     
    I'm sceptic as to whether "Yume Miru Kusuri" would be a 'feel-good' VN, as most of its content is somewhat sad, if you put any thought into it.
