Yeah, I've done the forum mod thing before, and it's a thankless pain in the ass. My condolences to End and Killa. You don't even get a shiny different-colored name to milk for a fake sense of importance.

We do! (In the who's online thing on the bottom). Special stars too.

but but but the POWAH over the Lilliputians. Don't you know ruling a small web community with an iron fist is the only thing that brings meaning to life?

I mean, assuming you're not planning to do something truly valuable with your life, like waging war on a TVtropes page while high on painkillers and the warm affections of goats.

P.S. Go post your bio in the Politician thread I'm fixing to necro. (Lol my phone is just repeatedly insisting that should be 'Negro')

Iavatus, you too.

This sounds like a much better deal. End and Killa should have gone for a mod job on BHB instead.

@mizal: Tempting, but I'll have to pass. I mean, mods have to do all kinds of things on CYS. Do you really expect me to read stories on this story-writing site?? Please.

And sure, I think you might get a kick out of my bio. You're lucky I was too busy to carry out any of my plans, because let me tell you, I was going to unleash the biggest drama shitstorm and it was going to be great. Still regret not Trumping it up in the RP thread, but I just never got around to it.

It's nice that on CYS the stories that need to be removed always helpfully make that obvious within the first five seconds.

I know Endmaster doesn't really read very many, I remember he once said that he reads his own stories more  than any others on the site. Can't say I really blame him lol.

I always really appreciated that Endmaster would always be one of the first to leave comments on my stories, back when I actually wrote stuff.

Okay, I dumped my bio in the Politician thread, as a matter of historical record since that was a lot of words typed for no one to ever see. I hope we don't have a kneejerk 4 day policy here about smelly dead threads.

btw for those of you who don't pay much attention to CYS, all the entries for Bucky's short story contest are now available. If you've got the time it'd be cool if you could give them a read or a quick comment. I haven't read them all yet myself, but Will's and Steve's are definitely worth checking out and I assume the win will go to one or the other.  Will would definitely lose a knife fight with Steve so I hope the mystery judge has a fairer way to make up their mind.

Bwhahahahaha

So, in Rutgers New Brinswick, theres like 4 campuses. College Ave, busch, Livi, and Cook/Douglas, yeah? And cook is notoriously ugly so no one wants to live there, but about 3,000 people do.

Somehow something snapped and all of their electricty got cut since last night. So all of the classes there were canceled, and now C/D students are being forced into the gyms to sleep in, because they can't stay in the dead dorm buildings ha ha.

Soooooo funny.

The CYS thread is gone, so I guess this is the next best place to post this:

http://chooseyourstory.com/story/koi-koi-~2d-the-hero-of-japan~21

The alpha version of the mythic nippon game I was making is up now. Basically need to test to make sure all the matches work now. Last time I actually updated it was a while back, so for the time being:

- Easy/normal/hard campaign gives you the same storyline. It's completed and ready for testing.
- Heroic gives you another storyline. It's done except for the last match (which can be played, but has placeholder text, and im not sure if it's even working yet). You can just skip the match itself though.
- If you dont want to play all the matches, you currently have the option to skip them
- Let me know about things like balance/if it's fun/if something is broken
- Also if you played mythic nippon and feel your guy got less time, let me know if you have any suggestions for them to make another appearance (I'm planning on having a bonus in tutorial once someone completes the game)
- Also also, Udo's algorithm for koi koi'ing is different from everyone else's. Let me know if it seems worse/better.

Ignore arcade mode and other things for now. Also the UI for the menus will be changed later. And the abilities need pictures.

There was a freaking squirrel in my toilet.

Really.

So, I've been on wierd shifts again, I go in at lunch and get home around midnight if I am lucky then try and sleep enough before the next day. Sadly I've been having to be up before 7am each day too to watch my lil guy while my wife works so I'm ver ver tired. Today finally she was off and had everything arranged so I could sleep in as long as I needed to have a proper rest.

She comes in the room shortly after 7 having just gotten up with our lil guy to to tell me she needs my help removing a squirrel from our toilet....

So no sleep in again but I did get to fish a squirrel out of our 2nd floor toilet and get it back outside while trying to keep our cats away as they would be on it in a second if they could.

For those wondering, this seems to happen more often than you'd think. It seems they crawl down into sewage line vents which typically come out the side or top of your roof then find themselves stuck in the sewage pipes. Since most mammals can swim find they simply start looking for a way out and see the glint of light from your toilet pipe. Climb up and swim through the U-bend then get stuck by the closed lid. And poof you have a freeky jack-in-the-box squirrel as a morning surprise.

Weird. I could have sworn I put them in, but I remember fixing something else with that match as well, so maybe I forgot. Either way, it's fixed now.

Yeah, their lines aren't done yet.

Glad you enjoyed it. Anything you can think to change or maybe a skit interaction you'd like to add for Roka and the player/other characters (he probably has the least amount of lines out of our characters, short of Keitaro).

Off the top of my head, I think one where Roka makes the player his minion and attempts to train them anyway could be funny.

Thought the entire story line was great! There were a few minor spelling issues like Yuki fells vs. Yuki feels, etc.

I got all the right text up through Kirito and Yasuo and thought they were funny. It was the Roka and Rai battle where the text reverted back to Udo for me.

Also has four 'Walk Away' Links on the choice to give up page with no 'Stay' Links at all, except that the second Walk Away Link was really a Stay link.

I feel your bug pain Killa haha! It was amazing how many issues kept popping up on my Cows vs. Aliens game, when I was 100% positive I had finally gotten it right each time.

Yeah, Roka's battle should be fixed now.

The walk away one is intentional. Before you enter the dojo, Yuki says to hover over your options if you're unsure. If you hover over the second one for a few seconds, the word "stay" shows up (as a tooltip or something).

Not sure if you played through the heroic storyline yet, but towards the end a similar thing happens (except this time the choices are actually replaced when you hover over them).

I had to skip Sakura on Heroic because I kept on getting killed by her magic missile (neither of us ever managed to get an attack on the other). Beat the others just fine, and got lucky against Yunikawa and one-shotted him using Miya's special. Fun game, funny lines :)

Interesting. On heroic Yunikawa is supposed to revive himself after the first death. Seems because you did it through the ability that didn't trigger.

I think I'll keep it that way as a feature just so there's an easier way of beating him. Sakura may be a bit too hard, yeah.

Yeah, it sucks since he made a pretty good story and he was definitely one of the best all around members on the site.

He probably would have laughed at this recent comment about his story:

It started off great; a few typing errors here and there, a bit of confusion over who spoke, but a very interesting premise with rich and delightful characters. The setting felt real and was well-written, with some excellent imagery, and there was a constant feeling of threat and conflict, which kept me on my toes, however . . .

. . . Cecelia was the start of the downfall; she was not developed *at all*, but came across as a love-at-first-sight Mary Sue (even odder when it alienates some people, as well as seemingly goes against the character, and breaks the genre of the story somewhat). I found Kelso to be a potential love-interest, much better than she was, and that it was even hinted at (the fact the hero's gender WAS ambiguous made this easier to believe, too, as he could be gay or straight as one wished to interpret, depending on what gender one assigned him).

Cecelia also marked the point I twigged who the Professor was, which ruined the upcoming element of 'surprise' and big 'twist' . . . I found myself skipping the text of the battle, no longer interested, and forced to endure more of this relationship with Cecelia (seriously, they'd known each other ONE WEEK, why would I - or they - care about their 'romance' when I have a huge battle raging on and deeper philosophical debate to consider)? I managed to guess all options from that point on to get to a good ending, simply as the narrative went from 'original' to 'predictable'.

Yes, it turned out the Professor was EXACTLY whom I thought he was . . . I would have been happy with that, had it been a chance to deeply explore one's loyalties, sense of identity, and the grey side to 'right/wrong' . . . instead it became a black-and-white choice with little explanation as to anything, making everything beforehand seem pointless.

So much potential as a story . . .

Wasted . . .

If this was rewritten WITHOUT Cecilia (or she was given - you know - a personality or some likeable traits), I would give it a much higher rating, but . . . frankly . . . Cecelia pissed me off so much - with her Mary Sue, Love-At-First-Sight, 'Soul Mate' crap - I felt that I was being sucked into a "Twilight" fanfiction by a teenager at that point and wanted to bang my head on a wall.

Probably won't replay.
