Re: How much control would you want as co-author

Actually, I think you just need to find the right person to do that job. Personally, if I were your co-author, I would like you to be the one in control, not the other way around. Your job -> Decide the overall story, the feel you want to make, but detail is up to you, you can decide it, too, or not...

Re: Ideas Dump

I really want to see a protagonist that is smarter and stronger enough to pretend that she's okay with every situation around her, no matter how bad it is, until someone can notice that she's actually not okay. That kind of defense mechanism has nothing to do with smarts or strength, honestly. Ahah...

Re: Ideas Dump

I saw an OP for an otome game where the protagonist looked a little, to my eye, like Hotaru Tomoe. Which made me wonder - are there any such games where you are playing the Dark Magical Girl? You are the daughter of the Big Bad, part of his/her plans to Take Over The World. By day, you pretend to h...

Re: What are you listening to while you write?

Basically, anything that matches my mood while I'm writing, or matches my character's mood in the story. =) Songs really help get me into the groove! Same with me. Basically, I rather choose instrumental ones, though. For example, when I wrote the prologue of story with fairy tale feeling, I used S...

Re: Present vs Past Tense, Narration vs Graphic

So, in my opinion, VNs are not prose novels. They are their own medium. And I have generally found that people who go into VNs thinking they are basically slightly easier novels tend to write crappy VNs. Graphic Novels are also not prose novels. If you understand your medium who create *for* that m...

Re: Does anyone know how to program mobile Otome games?

Like trooper said, if you have a good programmer skill and good logic (or have that kind of programmers in your team), then you can make it. The tricky part, though, I think you will need server to do that Ticket system, because it allows the game to reset a certain amount of Tickets everyday, withi...

Re: Present vs Past Tense, Narration vs Graphic

This is a case-by-case question. Everyone will have their preferences, and one isn't superior to the other, no more than a genre of music. A possible reason why some readers view present tense as 'strange,' is because we tend to think in the past tense. Not all, and arguably not many, but some stil...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

I have been struggling with chronic illness for a few years, and just passed my five year anniversary with my partner. I can't stand or walk for more than 15-20 minutes without becoming dizzy and collapsing and it keeps getting worse. I've just been chugging along, doing my best to do what I can do...

Present vs Past Tense, Narration vs Graphic

I couldn't find this kind of topic here, yet I've seen that sometimes people were using their preference in this matter to give opinion about story. So, I kind of wondered, how many people will choose which. This is just a pure question, that won't really affect much on my writing nor other's. Howev...

Re: Writer Looking for Work - Paid or Trade

Just wondering these questions. 1. Do you have any preferance of genre to write, other than Fantasy? And what can't you write (or at least, you don't want to write)? These are some sensitive genres I thought : Yaoi, Sexual Content, Gore. 2. Between Galge (dating for boys) and Otome (dating for girls...

Re: VN idea Need Feedback on title and synopsis

Thanks for replying Ernestalice. I did originally did not want to use ominverse due to the fact when you typed it in google ben 10 omniverse would come up. I didn't want to be associated with that. So then I thought about using multiversal but the story encompasses all possible universes so even th...

Re: Choices of no return?

Well, I don't really like when I can't do all options in the game, so I'll end up uninstall it and never want to play it or watch other players to play it anymore. So, I need to ask you this one question, do you want to play such game yourself? I saw that some people have mentioned about a similar g...

Re: VN idea Need Feedback on title and synopsis

I would suggest the hero's name or the world name for the title. Since Super Hero is one of your theme, I tried to compare with Captain America, Spiderman, Big Hero 6, and such, and I think "Magnificent The Kitsune" will probably suit the most. If you want to give the hopping universe theme in your ...

Re: How to come up with plot twists and interesting endings?

That's kind of what I'm trying to do with mine, and I have a few of the same concerns. Personally, I think that having romance and multiple choices available, with some "obvious" choices to raise affection, and some comical relief/humor as well as romantic actions true to the character's personalit...

Re: How to come up with plot twists and interesting endings?

The heroine is kept bland and devoid of strong characteristics because she is not meant to be a person - she is a symbol of the romance the audience themselves is investing in. Yep, I realized this, too, as I thought about it. But I just wonder if strong characteristics for female protagonist would...
