Basically I can't write a convincing process of going from hating each others guts to falling in love for my main couple, and I find a gruesome depiction of a crime scene easier to write. It's very disquieting.

Romance is hard to write, it's a very complex thing, Gore is relatively simple. I mean you could hack off someone's arm and instantly have an example of gore, wheras the blossoming of love would require a much greater amount of time to study and observe...and figure out how to translate that to text in a way that is both logical and evokes enjoyment from the reader.

Generally they need a reason to hate eachother's guts, but have a reason to presumably work together and learn more about eachother.

is it just a very nice The Gay

Some ( mostly meaning me ) would say that The Gay is enough.

But seriously it's a good book, author is an Asian-American ( born in China ) and there's a lot of elements of East Asian cultures in the story. And stuff.

So it's a bit like your Chinese cartoons.

And I do acknowledge that I'm biased when talking about 'Huntress' because it's so gay, but it's a pretty solid book and I do love the dash of Oriental motifs that the author has incorporated into her world building.

People cannot fucking stop talking about the POV

- - - Updated - - -


But the worst offender is the constant head-hopping POV change. Trying to keep up was dizzying. I was never pulled into the story because I was too busy being kicked out of it. I have read interviews with Lo in which she mentions not liking to write in the first person. That's fine. But if you're going to use the third person, especially in a story where the main love interests are the same gender, please use POV correctly. It's incredibly frustrating (and unnecessary) for the reader to keep up with what every character is thinking. One chapter in particular that starts off in a stranger's head (whom we never see again), then skips to one of the girls, then to the other. SERIOUSLY. The writing was such a jumble.

how does one function in normal life

鳥 vs 島, I think 馬 so they're both animals. For 島 there's a mountain. Mountain aren't going to be on birds but on islands.

The 祈 to 神 one is brilliant! Guess I'll use 燃's bottom to remind me of 熱. 口, right.

Katanagatari book 9 by Nisioisin
Kyoko Okitegami’s Memorandum by Nisioisin.

Can you tell I like a certain author?


Let me guess... Honobu Yonezawa, right?

But really, nice. Katanagatari's so good.

The former.

I did study it in college, so if I couldn't then that would be pretty sad lol.

Elaborate on ginormous. Was it ginormous, ginormous, girnormous, or supermassive black hole-levels dense ginormous?

It was GINORMOUS...as in it was spilling off the plate.

I don't think I'll be eating anything else tonight...or tomorrow for that matter.

If it's not then I've apparently developed an immunity to all water based diseases. Which may not be entirely false given how we didn't have the best water filtration until something like two years ago and I still consumed great amounts of water.
