The rage thread might be popular, and practically a time-honoured tradition for /blue/, but let's try to inject some positivity into our day as well. Talk about the little things that make you smile and bring warmth into your black heart!

I'm personally quite thankful for the privilege of working with a writer who cares a great deal about his stories.

Also, fairies are the best.

Finding a story you really enjoy, whether on here or IRL is always a pleasure.

Things that make me smile?

Very cute pictures
Seeing a story hit its climax
seeing people enjoy my updates
thinking of my story
playing a really good game (FF6,SotN)
The very fact this thread exists makes me happy.
Talking about all my ideas for stories with my friends makes me happy.
Hearing about my friends ideas makes me overly joyful.
Helping people who asks for it gives me a nice warm feeling and a smile.
Discussing a vote in a thread and lose the argument (Because then I've learned something).
Watching new writers make an attempt. Seriously, this makes me so darn happy because I still remember the feeling of just starting out.
Seeing a story I really like being updated.
When my readers manage to solve a puzzle/enigma I spent a lot of time and care to lay out. Especially when they do so with almost no clues, before when they were supposed to be able to solve it.

It makes me realize my readerbase are not just a bunch of dumb goldfish, and that underestimating their intelligence could backfire horribly. Also, the mere fact that they put effort to solve the puzzle means they are interested enough in the story to care about seeing all the loose ends tied up.

Well, either that, or I suck horribly at creating puzzles.

I liked it. And it took us quite some time anyway. NOW UPDATE.
(unless you are not who I think you are, then ignore me)
That feeling of giving a story you passed on the first time a second chance and finding yourself charmed by it
I wish all of you some positivity in your day. Be well, THP.

Thanks for this thread. It improves my mood just by looking at it.
I wish I could be friends with each and every one of you.
Even if you don't feel the same way right now, I'm happy you're alive.

Even more so when she's the one who brings up a discussion about THP stories.
It also makes me quite happy that she, not just accepts the fact I write on here, but also wants to help me when she can.

Might have been a bit personal, but who gives a fuck. It makes me overjoyed.

>>19479
Reader here, your gimmick is ingenious. I really like it.

That said, I wonder why it isn't more popular. Maybe some people take themselves too seriously?
>>19481

What story is this? The fact that it relies on a cheap gimmick to draw its viewers is probably why it's not popular.
>>19483
Why are you making judgments like that when you don't even know what story is being talked about?
A gimmick isn't necessarily a bad thing, and it doesn't automatically mean you rely on it. That's not what the word means.
>>19484

"Gimmick - a trick or device intended to attrack attention, publicity, or business."
Gimmick as a word has a poor connotation - I don't know enough about the story to make a judgement, but that you both are praising the gimmick but not the actual story does imply things.
This is the joy thread. Watching people talk shit about someone's story without even knowing which one it is does not fill me with joy.
Take that shit else where.
>>19485

Then could you tell me what story this is, so I can move my complaints, if any, there?

This doesn't have anything to do with Touhou, but fuck it.

If you've been following Twitch Plays Pokemon for some amount of time, and you were around in the last stretch, I'm sure you'd understand when I say there was never a more joyous and euphoric moment in the history of Internet than when we finally defeated Blue at the Pokemon League.

It was a long, wild ride. The best ride. It was a pleasure watching and playing this adventure with you.

After today, I will finally have time to re-read my stories, work on rebuilding my notes that I lost due to computer failure, and eventually update!

Writing for THP is one of my few joys in life, so I can't understate how excited I am!

Not that it matters if you don't enjoy wading through shit.
After over a year of reading CYOAs, it feels good to be writing one, even if you feel a bit sloppy off the start.

the exact number might have been wrong but I feel my point stands: Pixiv's crap is filtered out for the most part.

The idea I had been fermenting for over a year ended up losing out to one I cooked up around 30 minutes before dinner time. Somehow it ended up becoming more than just a semi-gimmicky idea thought up on a whim.
Spring has come, and it fills me with joy~

>Spring has come, and it fills me with joy~

Surrounded by warmth,
the rain comes softly down.
I watch the leaves fall.
April showers bringing May flowers is a joyful thing. Though I can't say we're getting much rain in my locale.
I got to go outside without a heavy coat for the first time in months today and it felt indescribably good.
Today, it actually started raining, which felt so nice even if it was a little cold. I had to stand out in it for a bit just to feel a bit more alive.
My flytrap's flowers just started blooming. They're rather charming.
Last night I had a dream of my story, fully animated. I can't remember the voices, but it was so clear in my mind that when I wake up, I immediately check my TV to see if it's real.

And I got another Sunday morning cartoon.

The dream was only a moment, but it fills me with happiness. I hope I could see dream another this night.
I came across this quote from George R. R. Martin today. It made me laugh for at least ten minutes straight.

“So I need to write faster. The last two books took a really long time, so I’m hoping this one [the Winds of Winter] will go a little faster. But I make no promises. I found out long ago that when you look at the overall task, the cathedral you have to build, it looks so daunting that you just give up and sit down and play a video game.”

>you just give up and sit down and play a video game
>>19652
I don't know, that makes me feel a bit disheartened. Learning that one of the most respected and acclaimed authors of our times indulges in procrastination whenever he is overwhelmed by the scope of his work, like the rest of us fanfic writers... On the one hand, it shows Martin is as human as we are, but on the other, it kind of stains the image of the hard-working, methodical writer I had of him.
It's raining again. Feels so refreshing to hear and watch.

After several months of careful planning, back and forths with my proofer and loads of test writing, I’m finally able to see the end of the prep-work for my next story. It fills me with excitement to know I’m almost ready to start another story.

I finally started the story that I spent months hemming and hawing about!
>>20097
Congrats~
I'm almost there myself. It's gonna feel so great when I finally post it.
I prodded a friend into reading my story. When he finally got around to it he loved the characterization and style. Hooray for self-esteem boosting!
>>20100

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but he's you're friend, of course he is going to say it's good. Go find one of your enemies and ask him/her to read it. That way you have someone who isn't afraid to point out the flaws.

Or maybe go find this Wiseman fellow, since he seems to pretty much be the enemy of all THP.
Fairies fill me with joy!
>>20101
Depends on the friend. Ask Deme. He knows I'll tell him something that is shit is shit and why it's shit.

Buuuuuuuuut not everybody's like that.
>>20105
I'd like to fill a fairy with joy.

A good friend will warn you of issues s/he notices and not be a yes man. Friends don't let others write shitty fanfics.

A track for the occasion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDywRDwiVYU
I'm putting in special effort for the opening post for my next story here on THP.
Because of a decision I made shortly before I started writing it, I knew it was going to be long and take time to write.

It really makes me happy to look over what's written already, and know how much closer I am to posting it. I can't wait.
I finally managed to update my story and people weren't completely mad at me~
>>20951

Nope. I was completely and utterly mad at you. I just didn't say anything because low self-esteem writer isn't conducive with getting more updates.

A story about how all myths are true and secret societies of humans are using ancient and powerful magic and fucktons of guns to fuck up eldritch horror from before time itself. If only said societies could stop bickering among themselves.
>>20978
Bionicle story when?
In all honesty I've thought of several ways to start a story about that, but its making them worthwhile that would be the issue.
>>21117
Well, lost things have a certain tendency to end up in Gensokyo. And the Toa Mata were lost for at least a thousand years.
Something where you play as a seven-foot robot walking around Gensokyo could be fun, maybe. You could also make it a bit of an Incident, depending on how you decide that their welcome would be. I could see Tahu getting attacked by a youkai and accidentally starting a forest fire in his retaliation, for instance, or the Toa in general acting hostile towards youkai in a way that would threaten to shake up the status quo.

Personally I'd maybe do something with Kopaka and Team ⑨, but that's entirely just because of my personal preferences.


But yeah, that seems like something that would be hard to make actually worth it. There's a pretty big difference between a setting and a story, after all.

Not to mention that it's a crossover, and with something relatively obscure to boot. If I were the one writing it, I'd be worried about whether or not I'd actually get any readers at all!
>>21118
If a crossover story is good, people will read it even if they have absolutely no familiarity with the source material. I've never played a KH game, but thoroughly enjoyed High Contrast. Similarly, I've never played Killing Floor or The Secret World, and yet I'm quit enjoying both the untitled Killing Floor story and Lost Bees Quest. You just need to be careful about who you cross over and how you do it to make sure that you don't end up with either source material's characters being disproportionately powerful with the other's.
It started raining and I slept so soundly because of it.
Ikr
>>21118 It's conceivable the Toa could see the youkai much like they see the Rahi.

In other news, I have home internet now, but I've been abusing it and not focusing on my writing.
