HEY FAGGOTS GUESS WHAT TIME OF YEAR IT IS AGAIN

ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ANONYMOUS. Non-anonymous posts will be disqualified.

Deadline is 15 September at 23:59 GMT (which, conveniently enough, is what site time is). Any submissions after that will be ignored.

The number of posts you can use maximum is two. MAKE VERY SURE THEY'RE OBVIOUSLY LINKED TO ONE ANOTHER. IN-THREAD LINKS ARE SUGGESTED.

Next, the categories. Veteran/newbie, normal/porn, the usual. We'll be dividing vet/newbie by a simple cutoff: if you've been writing here since before January 1st, you count as a veteran. All others are newbies.

I think you can distinguish between porn/non-porn yourselves.

Judging will be done the same way it was last contest: I will aggregate a list of the entered stories, and everyone will be allowed to vote for a story in each category: that is, non-porn/newbies, non-porn/vets and porn. I'm lumping the porn categories together due to low turnout for newbie porn. Voting will last another week, ending on 22 October at 23:59 GMT.

It was bad. It wasn't Hitler. There's exactly one cure for bad writing, and that's writing more. You can either knuckle under and give up (you know you really don't gotta do this whole dogshaming thing about your entry because it flopped), or you can just stick to it, keep trying, and learn from what you do wrong.

Keep trying.

This. Whenever I try to go back and read any of my early writing (whether it was for the site or elsewhere), it almost provokes physical pain. I got better by writing anyway.

For what it's worth, I wouldn't really call your story bad. Incomplete? Sure. Rushed? Definitely. However, it looked to me like you had something, and if you had more time to work on it and refine the details, it would have come out fine. What killed you wasn't you, it was the timeframe you were working in. In the past, when I've forced myself to rush, I've always been unhappy with the results, so don't use the quality of your writing while you're under pressure to meet a deadline as a measure of your general skill.

/shorts/ is always open, even without the writing contest. Why not try taking your time writing and post the story you wanted to write, instead of the one you were forced to by the deadline?

>don't use the quality of your writing while you're under pressure to meet a deadline as a measure of your general skill.
I'd say my main problems lie with the fact that when I have no pressure, because there are no expectations or there is no deadline, I can think of a story, but not write it, while, when under pressure, can write rather fast, however my creativity becomes limited.
The only reason I was able to write what I wrote is because, when I thought the deadline had passed, the weight fell off my shoulders and I got some creative ideas, which I would work on when I heard the deadline had actually not been reached.

Okay, so we used up all of Thread Six, so we obviously need a new one.

I'll start with my own question, What stories in /others/ are worth reading? There are a few that seem promising, but I'd rather focus on one or two at a time to avoid draining my entire day away. I prefer active stories too.

Silver of Sovereign had Tokiko as a main character, if I remember correctly. It died is on "hiatus" after four threads. I can't really think of any others that have her as more than a passing mention.

Any good ones out there with Sekibanki, Wakasagihime or Kagerou as a main character?

The new characters (largely from the DDC trial) have actually shown up in a few stories.

in /th/

Paper Football Days has Sekibanki

Flights of Fancy has the mermaid

Gensokyo's Public Enemy seems like it's going to have Raiko.


there's also The Fifth Age over in /others/ stars Kokoro and currently involves Kagerou.

We've had three of these?

Anyway, the important thing's the rules, so I'll get those out of the way first.

ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE ANONYMOUS. Non-anonymous posts will be disqualified.

Deadline is 30 September at 23:59 GMT (which, conveniently enough, is what site time is). Any submissions in October will be ignored.

While I'm tempted to also put in the one-post "fuck balista" rule, I'm willing to try out something new. So, this time around you'll have two posts to write your story with. MAKE IT VERY CLEAR THAT YOUR POSTS ARE RELATED. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO THINK ANY MORE THAN I HAVE TO.

Next, the categories. Veteran/newbie, normal/porn, the usual. We'll be dividing vet/newbie by a simple cutoff: if you've been writing here since before May 1st, you count as a veteran. All others are newbies.

The previous thread hit the auto-sage limit and I thought we should keep it going. So, I'll start it off.

Reimu has suddenly become ill with a disease that has never been seen in Gensokyo and Eirin can cure it, but she needs to gather the materials. Eirin sends Tewi and Reisen out to gather everything, but things don't go as planned. One of the ingredients is a plant that doesn't grow in Gensokyo so they must venture into the outside world to find it. Time being of the essence would mean that Reisen and Tewi might have to resort to less, savory, means to survive in the outside world as they search for the ingredient. [spoiler]Less savory could mean anything. From murder, to theft, to whoring themselves out. Up to the writer/voters[spoiler]

I'm also thinking about a dungeon crawling type story that features the characters as adventurers in a fantasy style game due to Yukari being bored. The kicker being that Yukari isn't the villain! She'd be one of the original members of the party! It would feature most of the characters in some way/shape/form. The initial party would be-
-Yukari (Protagonist) as the "Support Mage". She would manipulate the "borders of what one is capable of" to increase their "stats".
-Reimu (Sidekick) as the "Red Mage". She would have minor offensive and defensive spells as well as moderate physical power. She's not very keen on the "Game" Yukari created.
-Marisa as the "Rogue Mage". Her specialty would be offensive magic and swiping items from foes. She agreed to this on the terms that she gets to keep whatever she steals.
-Tenshi as the "Fighter". Basically the one who will pummel the enemies until they die, a few spells but nothing major. Yukari had planned on leaving her out of this, but Marisa accidentally let it slip and Tenshi demanded that she be part of it.
-Nue as the "Blue Mage/Mimic". She'd be able to use enemy attacks and copy the appearance and abilities of party members (Stats remain the same but she gains access to some of their spells). Nue wasn't the initial choice to r

So I've seen people made up stories about Tank tsukumogami. But since i know there's somewhere in canon that said nothing built in the past 100 years could become a tsukumogami, why don't someone write a story about a colonial era Man-o-War? Imagine, a tsukumogami, a cute girl that's 80 percent of her bodymass consists entirely of cannons!

>But since i know there's somewhere in canon that said nothing built in the past 100 years could become a tsukumogami
That's because the definition of a Tsukumogami is an item that has been used for a hundred years before gaining life.
Or one of the definitions at least. It's a bit fuzzy. I'm sure there are some good sites about Japanese folklore out there that can expand on it.

I'm also not really sure if a war machine like a battleship could ever become one, but whatever. Feel free setting sail on the SS Moe if that's your poison.

Just make sure that you have a good idea for a story beyond just "moe battleship". That's not exactly a lot to go on.

A Touhou-based card game with character spell cards and pretty artwork? Count me in.

It's already pretty close to the goal, but I thought I should spread the word a bit. I'd put information in this post but everything you need to know is already in the link.

That one time it wasn't derpression (as I like to call it) but the size of the project. I wanted a 32-touhou tournament and I didn't want to cut down to 16, you must realize how hard it is to choose 16 touhous without leaving someone's waifu behind, right?

I have (banlist updated!) decks somewhere with a general idea which touhous could use which deck, so not all hope is lost. It's just, ant-sized.

I am trying to make a spell card script in danmakufu PH3 that basically goes like this
Phase 1 of spellcard: small white or blue orbs or bullets appear. They are fixed and do not move.
Phase two: instantly, the dots are linked by lasers, forming the constellations seen in this picture of this post, either trapping or killing the player.
Step three: It rains yellow bullets diagonally from the right side of the screen.

Spellcard times out.


I would do this myself but have no experience in scripting. Is anybody willing to help me or at least get me started with this?

So, I want something translated into japanese, but it is contains somewhat large spoilers for the fic I am writing, and reading it would pretty much ruin it's reveal. But since I cannot speak japanese, I come here to ask for help. Can somebody translate this into japanese?: The genetic mailability of each specimen is almost as impressive as their fighting capabilities. Most of them are able to use specially designed spell cards, and some are even born capable of limited shapeshifting. They are still children however, and thus need more experience in simulation before we can be truly prepared for this war.

FYI, translating into one's second language is magnitudes sketchier than doing it into one's first. The Japanese media you adore solves the same problem by using Engrish and is perfectly fine with it, so imo there's no harm in using google translate!
>> No. 13153
Or you could instead describe the lines as something in a foreign language, and focus on the reaction of the character who hears and understands the message.
>> No. 13155
The likelihood of anybody around here being able to do E->J (a very, very different process from J->E, I might add) with any reliability approaches nil.

Case in point, >>13153 has the right idea.
