Tarot Cards

I found these old tarot cards I randomly created a couple of years ago. The images on the cards are all old paintings that are in the public domain. I'm not going to use them, but I'd be gratified if someone does something with them. Examples: http://i.imgur.com/z0vl8pv.jpg http://i.imgur.com/PqMtFb...

Re: NACIRA [GXB][Otome,comedy,mystery]

Wait wait...is this partially inspired by The Mahabharata? (As in, the Indian ancient epic?) I'm assuming it is, since you have the Pandava brothers? But I just wanted to confirm. I always thought that The Mahabharata would make great material for a VN. I mean, it literally does have a harem aspect-...

Re: Best Anime Ever Watched?

I'm sure I don't watch as much anime as most of you, but these are my top 10 in alphabetical order. (Note, these are my favorites in terms of pure enjoyment, and not necessary the "best" by any measured criteria.) Baccano!

Re: Bram Stoker's Dracula has potential for dating sim.

Do you play as Mina or Lucy? Is Dr. Seward one of the obtainables? And you can't possibly be thinking of leaving Quincey Morris out, can you? XDDD Lucy would probably make the most sense, as she's the one with all the suitors. But she also drives me nuts half the time, so it had better be Mina. Bes...

Re: What do you do to improve your writing?

"They" say that to become really, really good at something, like high-quality professional-level good, you need to work at it for at least 10,000 hours. I think this is true of writing. Taking writing classes is great, but they have their limitations. I'm not an English major, but I've taken some un...

Re: [GxB] Mail Order Bride

Thanks for the comments everyone (including those I haven't responded to in over a year :P)! I'm glad you enjoyed the game. It's funny, I look back at this with embarrassment because it was very much a freshman effort and something of a rushed job, not to mention it betrays the fact that I'm a total...

Same here, and I use the same card at 4-5 libraries in other cities. I thought that was why I paid taxes!

Re: Any recommended books?

My favorite young adult novels are The Queen's Thief trilogy by Megan Whalen Turner. It's a politically themed series set in an AU Ancient Greece. The first book is just okay, but it's very fast-paced, and once you get through that one, the next two (plus a fourth book set in the same universe) are ...

Re: Fanservice for women?

I was just using Labyrinth as an example of female-oriented fanservice with which people might be familiar. I was never a huge fan of the movie myself, but I do like Bowie's music (which likely makes him seem more attractive to me), and I probably wouldn't have liked Labyrinth at all if I didn't. My...

Re: Fanservice for women?

Slightly off-topic, but I actually think it's the plump girls that don't get any love, at least in Western media. Guys with a bit of pudge are much more likely to win over some hot girl than the other way around. (Of course, this is probably because Hollywood is mostly controlled by men.) Back on-to...

Re: Fanservice for women?

Hm...Yes, I would definitely consider most of the images posted on the previous pages (Gibbs, Hotch, Armitage, Tennant, etc.) to be my kind of eye candy. :) For me, it's not about skin; a guy can be completely covered and still be insanely attractive to me. I don't know if any of this has been menti...

Re: Your first ever video game.

I used to play a lot of the educational PC games when I was younger, so my first games were Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?, The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, the Trail games, etc. all of which I'd check out from the library. As for the first game I owned, that was probably either Civilization...

Re: Referring to parent characters

Well, I call my parents Mom and Dad when I'm talking to them in English, Mummy and Daddy when talking about them with other members of my family, and Mama and Papa when I'm talking to them in Gujarati, so it depends on the circumstances. A couple of my friends are more formal with their parents and ...

Re: Epicness...

Ha, when I think of overly witty dialogue, the television show "Gilmore Girls" comes to mind. It's hard to think of good examples out of context, but too much wit comes across as artificial and contrived. Often it's too fast-paced, too obscure, too heavy. Real people don't think on their feet that q...

Re: Petite/loli protagonists in otome games?

Ha, I'm a short and relatively flat-chested adult female...and I don't think I look like I'm 12. I hope not anyway, and I'm pretty sure that most of the guys I've dated weren't pedophiles either. It's a body type you don't see well-represented in (Western) mainstream media, which tends to be overstu...
