Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

  1. Country side Vn

    Hello all.. I am geting back into Vn's and felt like a nice slow Vn to read, that is about life in the country side.. I would love for it to have romance and slice of life feel to it. Preferably would like it in english but can settle with easy - medium japanese level. Thank you and enjoy your day. Edit: Another type of recommendation would be if there is a Vn similar to either Hoshizora no Memoria or Grisaia no Kajitsu.
  2. Country side Vn

    thanks for the suggestions, busy lately with other things and other Vn's but yeh things like Higurashi i have already started to read..really getting to me already haha...Also as for Hoshi ori, i was wondering around vndb and came across it..definitely my next read..(love short hair heroines).

  7. Good evening Fuwa, I have not been online in months and started to come back into reading more Visual Novels. Lately I have been reading Never7 and Ever17 but it isn't that type I am looking forward to at the moment. ​ Ok the recommendation I am looking for at the current moment is as follows.. To me it has to have atleast multiple routes, Unlockable routes(such as New game there would be more choices) and a gameplay elemnt which I will describe now. That would be the main elements of the Vn I would like to read.. as for the other parts I am looking for would be 1: Mystery.. I am looking for a Vn that is similar to 999(9 doors 9 hours etc.) and Dangan ronpa.. that element where you find items or clues and you work your way through the Vn... 2: Romance... I would like there to be a romance part to it towards the end atleast but it doesn't have to be included. 3: Gameplay: as mentioned in the Mystery part, Where you can interect with the game by finding clues and or things like that to find the truth of whatever the Vn is about.. Would be nice to have things like map movement but isn't required. 4: Bad ends.. in a way I wouldn't mind them as these style of Vn I'm looking for would have them like DR and 999 had. Anything else I'm relatively find with... If you happen to know of a similar but not exact type then it would be fine and I would look and see how it is.. Thank you for your time and it is good to be back.
  8. Show off your Writing!

    EVening all(morning to some).Firstly i want to mention that i would like to post a small piece i was thinking about doing...secondly i appologise about my Grammer and about my english as a whole(for some reason it doesnt come out well). And you will see a lot of spelling mistakes. Another thing I want to mention is this is more like notes on a story I want to create but this is what I really want people to feedback on as I love to create notes and background stories on the characters and such before I write... So I apologize if this isn't the right thing to do or right type of work to post... (The following Copy and paste is from a wordpad of mine..I always talk to myself in terms of writing so you will see that a lot. Again I apologize). regardless here it is.. ||||||
  9. Into the Night( My Story )

    Heya all.. Well firstly i would like to say that this is more of a personal Topic for me.. For about a year now I have been writing my own story and I felt like I would like to get others opinions on it where it is now.. Well I am FAR from done but anyway, The Format is what you could say Light Novelish. Also Please ignore all Format and Spelling mistakes xD.. I tend to have errors now and then. Anyway I would like some feed back if its possible.. The Story itself would seem like your Typical Romance school life genre's...But I tend to add a few darkness into the story later on. I have 3 separate documents, One for Story, one for Character information and another for Bits and pieces I might add to the story.. FOr now I will post the Story and if anyone would like to read it may of course.. Well I will be in your care xD. Any Questions regarding it please don't hesitate to ask. Please Enjoy.
  10. Into the Night( My Story )

    It would seem that I come back to this topic yearly haha Regardless I wanted to co​me back and post what I have done for those that had followed some of my story...and I hope to get some more who like this type of story...as I like people to understand my story more from the beginning from now on when I do post more of my work, I will post the Story first and secondly I will post information I have on the story or just information I am thinking about in regards to the story.. Well like I always say, I hope you enjoy.. Edit: I'm copying and pasting so the format and the way it looks might look messy. |||||||| ​ As Tatsu was about to leave, He was stoped by Rika. Rika: Nii-san, Will you be alright to go out at this time? As she said this, she was holding the him of his shirt, sincerely worried about her brother. Tatsu: I think so, don’t worry Rika. Ill get you your favorite on my way back. Once he finished he gave her a smile as he knew that she was geniunly worried. Tatsu: I shouldn’t be long, today had just tired me out. I’ll tell you about it when I get back. Rika: Alright, Have a safe trip. Also you better get the right one Nii-san! As she see’s herbrother off, she reluctently removed herhand from his shirt and replied while puffing her cheeks. Tatsu: ha ha, maybe I should get the one you dislike so that you can puff those cheeks more. Finishing off, he replies while laughing at her. Rika: ah mou urasai nii-san! She then turns on her heels and trots away angrily. Shifting to Tsunika’s Point of View. Tsunika: Tadaima.. Tsunika has just returned home from her first day of High School. Tsunika Mom: Okaeri Tsunika. Did you enjoy your day? Tsunika: ah Okaa-san. When her mother asked her about her day, her face had shown a slightly sad expression, but mainly her feelings itself were confused and shocked. Tsunika: The day itself was great okaa-san. But at the end…I don’t know what to make of it. As she finished off her sentence, she tunred to look away. Tsunika Mom: Ara…Would you like to talk about it? She was worried from the move that Tsunika might not have coped well from moving to a new town. Tsunika: It’s alright it wasn’t that big of a deal. As for Tsunika, She doesn’t want to remind her mother about The ordeal they faced a few years ago..If she were to mention that she was reunited with Tatsu, She will immediately remember the sorrow they faced from the tragedy. As soon as she realised this she remembered that she must tell “her” that she found him. Tsunika knew that “she” had feelings for him and when he left so suddenly in Middle school, it destroyed “her”. Tsunika: Okaa-san I need to borrow the phone for a bit. Tsunika mom: Sure, Going to check up on Reika and how her day went? When she got the permsion, she grabbed the house phone and went on her way to her room. Tsunika: Yes, But also I have some good news for her. Before she entered her room, she made sure that her mom wouldn’t be able to hear her from in her room. When she entered, she went and sat on her bed and started to dial her friends number. She was anxious as they have been loning for this oppurtinity ever since he left..She wonders how she will act uppon hearing about all this. When the dialing tone ended, she heard another female on the line. ???: moshi moshi, Kyori household. Tsunika: Ah Reika, Its me Tsunika. Upon hearing that it was sTsunika on the line, Reika drops the formal speech and started to talk with her best friend. Reika: Ah Tsuni great timing, I was thinking of calling you myself..But didn’t you just finish school, you called pretty quickly. Tsunika let off a wry smile upon hearing how energetic she always is. Tsunika: Well that may be true but I firstly I want to hear it…any earth shattering news about your first day at high school? This too them was just the normal conversation they would usually have, but from Tsunika’s slightly down toned voice, Reika could tell it was slightly off. Reika: I wouldn’t call it Earth Shattering…but the school itself is great..Well for an all girls school it is grand as I expected it to be..but it feels bland..probably due to it having no boys..aaand…you find any boy that caught your attention huh Tsuni-san.. While laughing sinisterly, this is one of the aspects of Reika Tsunika likes about her..the playful atmosphere which can dull anyfear and problem that wouldarise.. Tsunika: as a matter of fact there wasone guy..I still have no idea what to say of it.. Tsunika was lost in thought and the conversation was quiet for a few seconds.. Reika: ooo so he was that good looking huh..hehe Letting out a sinister giggle, she wonders what has Tsunika down like this. Reika: is it that guy that has you feeling down like this Tsuni. Lowering her voice lower then it was since she knows this conversation might be a serious one. Tunika: Well yes in a way.. I don’t know how I really feel about it..Happy, Sad, surprised..more importantly in a sense it comes as good news…mainly for you Rei. Whie listening, Reika started to become confussed. Reika: Huh, Why would it be good news for me. Well in one way since im going to an all girls school it would help me but you know how I feel Tsuni.. Tsunika: Haha yes I will never forget it Rei..but that was why I know this comes as good news for you…not good but even great. Upon hearing the way the conversation has been heading, Reika started to feel hot and her mind was going all over the place. Reika: Wait you couldn’t possibly mea- With every word and breath that comes out from Tsunika, Reikas heart beats faster and faster. With almost tear filled voice she replies to Reika almost breaking out in a cry . Tsunika: its him…rei..hic…I found him. Upon hearing Tsunika’s crying words…Reika instantly droped the phone and started to dash out the house….It was a bit too hard to believe…at first she was thinking that it couldn’t be him, not after all this time looking..but when she recalls how the conversation was developing and how Tsunika was softly crying over the phone, makes it undeniable of how true it all was.. Her heart wouldn’t slow down..Her mind kept racing…Its been three and a half years since he disappeared..She has been searching for him, Ever since he left that note that day…she has been longing to find him once more. Although even if she ran out in a mad search for him..her chances of finding him were nearly zero. Even still, her feelings for him, the feelings she wasn’t able to convey to him in the past..even if she cant convey them or even if he found someone else…she wants to see him, Hear him… in the past, He meant everything to her. Reika: Its been a long time since you left and ill finally get to see you again…Yuuki-kun. End of Chapter 2 !!! That would only be my second chapter..and that would be the only part I have in regards to my written story...but in terms of the additional information ill give now would probably be equal to another two chapters... (The following I will give you is from a wordpad I use to type formyself so some of the writing will be in first person towards myself.) |||||||||| They met in the first year of their middle school, Afterwards he changed schools and met Kitsuji at his new school. I could also have it that his past and present are two differant towns. and that Tsunika and Reika have moved here to the schools boarding housing. With that, the moment they met gave an even stronger shock as it is asking "Why is he/she here"? I have changed or should say I added quiet a bit of information onto my phone. One of the ideas I thought of recently was the change of view..But in doing so, I will have to edit my whole story or just addd more information. Firstly, at the part in my story where he had reunited with tsunika at school, he wonders about his past and goes out at night to go to their old hang out spot hoping to meet “her”. At the same time I can have a change of perspective and have it at that Tsunika is having a phone call with “Her” and tells her what had happened at school and who she found had returned. Instantly after hearing that it was Tatsu, She hangs up the phone and runs straight out of the house and heads in the same direction as Tatsu. Now in regards to why they havnt met in over a few years…Before that I intend to change the school they meet in< I previously mentioned Middle school and then said that he gained popularity in the last two years…This is a contridiction as they are in high school now, The schooling system is Middle school, Junior high and then High School. So I intend to change the time at when Tatsu changed schools to be around the middle of their third year of middle school.. That would let there be around 3 Years of a gap between them…I will put it that they met in the second year of Middle school. This way I can have Tatsu meet Kitsuji and Shiitsu in Junior high. Ok now back to my original topic, Why they hadnt met… Its true if all main characters are in this town then they would of met one day or another…but this town is where Tatsu moved to in the past.. Tsunika and Reika had moved here because Reika was moving due to her family problems and Tsunika moved with her into the school dorms.. Little did they know ofcourse that Tatsu was at the same sschool as Tsunika. Continuing from where I left off in my chapter two…at first I had it that Tsunika was the one that was afraid or scared of Tatsu when the reunited, but thinking about it. He moved away from their previous town because of that incident that he possible was the cause of. So wouldn’t it be more common if it was him that was afraid and scared of his past…ofcourse he is confused and happy about meeting his old friend again but he still wants to put that allbehind him nad he wants Tsunika to live her life without worry… Now I have to come up with the reason why he wants to go to their old hang out spot and why Reika wants to meet with Tatsu…I just thought that in the past she had unrequieted love towards Tatsu ever since they had talked at the cafeteria..and upon knowing that thiswas where Tatsu hadmoved to, ofcourse she wants to meet him again ever since his sudden dissapearance. She would then recall that letter he left behind in her locker the day he dissapeared. So when Tsunika told her about Tatsu the emotions swelling up just sprung out and made her move instantly towards that place.. Nevermind I have been mentioned their old place, their hang out and the place they use to play and such…but that doesn’t make sense since this was the town Tatsu had moved to and hasn’t met them since he moved…so their shouldn’t be any place for them to meet up at…So for now what I will have it be is that Reika will go out and just randomly search for Tatsu and at the same time Tatsu will be out and about just randomly walking to clear his mind about his encounter with Tsunika. |||||||| That would be all.. I guess all I really would like is how people view the way my story is going and see if its only my personal opinion on how I enjoy my story... This was a long post but I hope you read to the end. Most of it was just me talking to myself in my notes but I feel like I can understand my story better if I ask myself questions.. Hope you enjoyed it and It might be another long time until I write a bit more on this story..Follow like what ever you want if you wish to see more in months time.... Until then enjoy your day, week, month.. Arturia
  11. Evening Fuwa..Recomend a Mystery

    mm i looked them up and they look like the type..Thanks Kaguya for the help...enjoy your day.
  12. hmm i agree with Tay...the game might seem simple but as i have just finished it myself i can say that there are points that people will not get...there is alot of story linking between F/Ha and the rest of the Fate series...i was even surprised to see the link with Fate/illya kalaeido.(sorry for bad spelling)...If there is something someone does not get or is confused about that doesnt have any mention in F/Ha then they could look here..but i am sure for people who have watched the whole series or read it will understand most of what is said and done..Good luck Tay.
  13. Sprite Maker

  14. Sprite Maker

    just a quick question..i was able to do my sprite but i am unsure of how to save it? any help regarding that?
  15. happy birthday, Not sure if you will come back to Fuwa but nonetheless i wish you a good day.

  16. Character Hairstyles

    if i were asked this question in the early stages of my anime life, i wouldnt of answered well.. If i was asked half way through i would say blonde hair for some unknown reason, i have found that 80% of my favorite characters have blonde in it.. But at the current "me", i would say short hair around shoulder length. as for the color it would probably be light, like light blue to white..Example like Ayanami Rei and Eureka.. as for the question itself, Yeh i think characters are distinguished by their hair..but if i find that there personality is on the down side then that affects the final opinion.
  17. Fate/History

    HMm pretty interesting.. Well like my names suggests i am a Fate fan and a saber fan.. just want to mention that people who have read the Fate Vn and Attaraxia Vn will mention that it has alot more information about her and her "counterpart". Funny thing about her Design was that it actually made me doubt History itself, and made it feel like Type moons version was better..but thats ofcourse my personal opinion.. I have yet to watch the latest series but i have a feeling even more information might be released for those that have not read the Vn..
  18. Hi to you all.

    Welcome, Hope all is well and i hope to see more of you in the forums..Enjoy it.

  20. Into the Night( My Story )

    i was pretty surpised to see the time stamp for this topic to be a year old...im amazed that i didnt do muhc for my story for this long, Anyway i managed to add a bit more lately for those who want to know abit more of my story.. I haven't stoped it, i just tend to neglect it which i dont want to.. Anyway here is a bit more. ||||||||||||||| It has been well over 2 years that they last saw each other.. He didn't think they would ever meet up again..It was all thanks to her that he is who he is today.. Tatsu: Tsun-San. It really was you.. . Only you and her knew that Nickname because it was her that gave me the courage to live on and you brought enjoyment and fun back into my life. Tatsu sat up from his bed and went towards his drawers. He went down and picked up a picture frame.. Tatsu: How could i forget you and her. how could i have forgotton all those fun days we spent together during Middle School..... Ever since that day, Ever since then i have changed thanks to you. But…. But it was because of me that.. ..... As he lies back onto his bed with the picture in hand, He starts to remember the past.. The tragic past he doesnt want to remember and the past when he first met her. .. . *Sfx*Ding Ding Dong*(The sound to signify Break has started). With the sound that all the children were waiting for sounded, They all got out of there seats and hurried to the cafeteria...All but one. Tatsu, Siting there with no expression, He slowly got up from his seat to go towards the Cafeteria. Tatsu: *Sigh Its better to be at the end of the line then being ignored and get cut by someone else into the line. Even though he was tired of being ignored by his fellow classmates, he didnt have the self confidence to do anything about it. He felt like if he were to say something, that the situation would just get worse. By the time he got there, There wasn't much of a que left already..And by the looks of the Items on the menu, Most have already been sold out. Tatsu: Luckily my Favorite isnt gone yet.. When Tatsu gets to the counter.. Tatsu: One bowl of Chicken and Rice please. ???: Alright coming up. One thing he did enjoy..Was that simple talks like the one he had just now was what kept him in check..Since he couldnt have a normal conversation with anyone else. Once he recieved his Meal he went to his Usual Spot in the Cafeteria.. a Small table in the corner where no one goes Due to the fact that it was small and away from many of the other tables. This small table didnt bother him though, As he liked the solitude and how quiet it is there. Once he sat down and said his thanks, He started to eat. ... But. Rika: Nii-chan? Tatsu: Hmm.. Sorry Rika i will be there now. Tatsu slowly Got up rubbing his eyes. Rika: Were you sleeping? She asked in wonder. Many Brothers and sisters you could say hardly ever get to be close due to the so called Sibling rivalry. But these too are differant and can See when the other is hurting. Tatsu: Ah ya, Dont worry im up now.*Opens the door.. Is mother home yet? I didn’t realise it was dark already. Rika: Yes, she got home not too long ago. Tatsu: I see Thank you for wakeing me Rika. He replied with a warm smile, One that Rika loved to see as it made her happy. Although it was the type that she knew had a sadness to it. Rika: Nii-chan, Were you dreaming about that time again? Tatsu: Don’t worry, its in the past now…remember, we need to move on Rika. As he affirmed that he is alright, he puts his hand on her short hair and rubs it.. Rika: Nii-chan.. haha that’s ticklish.. As they walk side by side they both arrive in the lounge, Although Rika and there mother already had supper, Tatsu sat down at the Dining table and started to eat. Rika: Sorry I didn’t wake you for Supper Nii-Chan (He seems to have been worried about something when he got home and then when he started to call out her name…I didn’t want to wake him and take him away from that place.) Tatsu: Anything made by you is good to eat at any time Rika…Ittadakimasu. As Tatsu Picks his Chopsticks to eat his food, they drop as suddenly as he picked them up. He didn’t realise it until now, That his hands were trembling… He thought the past was all behind him and that he wouldn’t see her again…hoping that it was for the best.. Rika: Nii-chan? Are you ok..Sorry you must still be tired, do you want to have it later? Tatsu: t t that would be good thanks…rika. I think im going to go for a walk quick to wake myself up.. Motsuki Mother: Don’t go too far or stay out late at this time, but if you happen to pass the convenience store…Get some milk and an ice cream for yourself and Rika. Tatsu: alright, Will do. |||||||||||||| That is a continuation of the story part..For those that are interested on what i am thinking at this moment, i will post a thought of mine for my own story.. This is my Point of view so reading it might seem strange. This was something that will be put into the story at a later time and is just a though which might change in the future.. it shows the connections between certain events that have and will happen. |||||||||| Some more thoughts came to mind today.. The connection between Tatsu and Tsunika might seem distance at first, but once they reunite it might also seem close…That is not the case. In my second year high school part im going to add, mentions a girl taking him in her arms in the rain…I didn’t mention “Who that girl is”…Also I didn’t mention who his childhood friend is who cured his Shadow…The personality of the girl is not the same as Tsunika, The childhood friend has a cheerful atmosphere and is always looking to help others…Among my main Characters, There is only one who Resembles that and that is Reika, Tsunika’s Friend…She helped him, and that is how She knew of Tatsu’s Childhood nickname Yuuki Which means bravery. A thought came to mind now, The part where he lies on his bed looking at his hand, also the part in the third year could be apart of this…The reason why he feels conflicted is that his feelings feel Confused, He is unsure if he loves his childhood Friend, or a new found person in his life, Tsunika.. That is one of the Plot twists in my Story…Four main characters, and an unsure ending. I just need to figure out a good reason, why he forgot them and why both sides never tried to contact each other..I cant say that he moved away, because he lived in the junior high near there and made friends with Kitsuji…Could be a dramatic event, a good reason why they never tried to talk to him anymore and a reason why he forgot.. but im unsure how to go about it…I havnt mentioned a father yet so that could be a reason and his mother is alive..HMm a good reason is that he could of caused the death of someone close to Reika or Tsunika..Will think about it.. ||||||||||||||| When Tsunika gets knocked down the first time her and Tatsu met in the hallway when he was late, She didn’t get a good look at him as he was a bit of a distance and he wasn’t facing her..The second time she gets knocked down, she can see him straight in the face and from the angle, it recalled all the memories she had of him and the terrible past she had hoped to have forgotten. At first the remembrance Part with him in the cafeteria, I had made it that it was her that helped him become who he is today….but, that I just thought of now was not how it happened...He has gotten his memory mixed up and the reason she called him by his old nickname was because she was friends with someone who had called him that first, Reika.. So how it so far.. The person who met him in the cafeteria and helped him get his courage was Reika, When Reika became friends with Tsunika, the three use to play with each other a lot.Alot of this part of the past I am unsure about but somewhere Tatsu’s Sister joined in and had fun with them.Some time after that the “Incident” happened and caused a rift between them..But now that I think about it, if it was really devastating then he wouldn’t of still ahd his courage and his high spirits in the beginning of high school.. A Strong thought came to me…the connection could probably be Tatsu’s Father and Tsunika’s father. One thought Was that Tatsu’s father planned a deal with her father that would help her father tremendously but in the end His father betrayed Tsunika’s father and took off with her fathers money and along with the companys future..He deserted his family and never looked back. as for Tsunika’s Father, He fell tremendously ill and his family started to lose a lot more money..In the end he killed himself.. As for Tsunika, She didn’t blame Tatsu for this, but Tatsu.. He knew it was all his fault..He knew that if he never met her and her father..this wouldn’t of happened. Both familys Hated and resented Tatsu’s father for what he had done. To not put anymore sadness to her and her family..He decided to stop seeing her and Reika…put a “Rift” between them so that they can hopefully forget this whole ordeal.I didn’t think of this till now but if I will go this route then I might have it that his first year Middle school was there where he was, but then after the incident he changed schools…but not without a word..Last day of his old Middle school..He left a Note inside Reika’s Locker….But what was on it? Present day and I will only put this information im about to write now around his second year of High school.. One day after he has finally managed to feel like old times with Reika and Tsunika and that it was as if the whole thing never happened…Someone who he hoped to never see again returned.. |||||||||| Reason i am showing you this is that i like to hear other peoples opinions on the matter, So tell me what you think..Might not change anything ofcourse but yeh..
