Another belated chapter update, this one for Flowers in Boreal Twilight. I keep feeling like something is lacking in Chapter 3. Though just like the character that I write, I can't seem to pinpoint what exactly it is. Grasping the metaphysical is hard :< (Edit: after some more discussions and thought, I decided I didn't really like this chapter and is planning a major edit.)
The next one will also be Flowers as well, as I'm already into Chapter 4 and trying to hit the ground running on its story.
Chapter epigraphs are also being introduced (and retconned to older chapters). It has worked well in another writing project of mine to supplement world-building, cultural understanding, and characterization. As Flowers shines a spotlight on the Samarans and their Dharmic world views, I hope this'll come in handy.
...And for those who like learning in general: a Chapter references post.
Holidays is coming up! Hopefully this season I'll play less games and write more.
Pascal, dress uniform ver.
Finally! (...and Krytyk is back so I'm no longer stealing his thunder!)
Beta readers have been busy and I've been distracted so this took a while.
Volume 4 Chapter 1
In the spirit of my works as usual, I hope you learn something from this chapter. The Spice and Wolf readers can tell me how this compares to the depth of economics in that series. Those of you who read Flowers will also see why I wanted to finish that exposition first before starting this one.
In other news, uploaded two character profile sketches of Pascal to the fan art, plus Hachi-Hana has given Tofu it's silkiness~ see the Daybreak and fan art pages for more ^^
Again, not Krytyk. This is Aorii~
I have a few updates:
First of all, this is Aorii and not Krytyk. Sorry to disappoint those of you who have been wishing for an OSO update.
Second of all, no this isn't a Daybreak update. However if you did enjoy Daybreak -- or enjoyed parts of it but not the genderbender -- I'm starting up a new writing project that you may be interested in:
The Flowers in Boreal Twilight
If you're a Daybreak reader, you might remember Captain Markov telling Kaede about the 'Grand Marshal of Samara' having a story similar to hers? This is that story.
You might be surprised that this is on completely different site. This doesn't mean I'm migrating from Krytyk's or moving Daybreak. However, I do have several reasons for this:
Posted a short, Extra Chapter for Daybreak Volume 3, finally getting a chance to explain archery as well as two scenes that I dropped from the main story due to pace considerations. It's a fairly lighthearted read so, enjoy~
Volume 4 is currently in planning stages although work on it will start soon.
For anyone watching current anime, Kotarou -- the male protagonist from Tsuki ga Kirei -- is essentially a younger version of male Kaede (introverted, awkward, sensitive and easily embarrassed, but very disciplined in his aspirations). I challenge those who say "Kaede doesn't feel like a boy" to disagree with this =P
