[ red_a02 ] Shuzhen – The first episode was a lot of fun, cos it had an interesting cocktail of sexual tension and smooth fight choreography. This episode is like the awkward aftermath...

[ vermilion_2 ] YAPX – I understand that most of your stories are dialogue-based and heavy on retorts and counter-retorts. This one felt unnecessarily circular. It starts with a cool premise: a killer/villain/vigilante uses Lent to swear off something that should be second nature to him (I suppose), and then talks about a story. The link between the two (giving up killing & the story) isn’t a 100% fit. Maybe instead of “let me tell you a story”, it could be “hey, you see I even passed a guy up for death today!” or equivalent. Something to drag Lorelei into the banter and the premise. // That’s my only complaint. I’m not a big fan of dialogue-based stories, but I can make a exception for this.

[ 130204 ] YAPX – Good pace, good characters, great dialogue. The thing I like best is a combination of the three: how you build up their pseudo-relationship through all that back-and-forth exchange. Somehow, you craft a unique, strange relationship: from any one point in the story, both of them are manipulative, victimised and hypocrites - though not all at once. // On word choices, I felt you could change the word “janitor” (“cleaner” or “uncle” would’ve given a different, but more acute local flavour to it). Mostly because, it’s connotes an added level of difference through: class. Whether or not you intended it, by portraying the “janitor” and “student” you bring out the fact that he’s stuck there socially in all sense of the word. It made the part where he says he reads books during weekends completely out-of-context and weird. // Also, there’s too much “sliding” in and out of the room. Not sure if that’s intentional repetition, or just a lack of other words. // I thought that the girl’s own background is pretty compelling. Even after everything, I can’t tell if she’s speaking the truth. Because I’m all for unreliable narrators and characters, I can still find her well-thought out. But other readers might lose patience or wonder at her sudden change of heart at the final moment.

I am a genius. Yeah, well, we all already know that, so what prompted this sudden declaration of self-worth?
I spent two days codifying the search engine. Figuring out the logic for the +word –word “this is a phase” commands was a bitch, but I think I finally got it. I also think it’s pretty optimised, which is good, yes. I know there are plenty of free scripts on the .net, but I really enjoy codifying them myself, even if, since I never bothered to actually learn .perl, there’s lots of stuff I can’t do. But it’s fun to build amazing things with the little tools that you have, the satisfaction is pretty amazing.
I’ve been working on the scripts for quite a while now, two weeks, I think. I started after I finished my June accounts and realised how little I made and god, that was seriously bad for the morale. So, obviously, I stopped working and started doing something absolutely unprofitable.
This reverse-psychology thing actually works, btb, when I’m done with all the scripts, mayhaps a month or so more, I’ll probably be all hyped out and ready to start working again. Unless my July accounts are screwed up too… mmm…
About a month or two ago, I had a “meet nocturne day”. I think the last time this happened was mayhaps over half a decade ago. Friends I haven’t seen in four, five years just all pop up and decide we should meet up. In two days I met five people – that would be half my social circle – two of whom called me up, another two as a result of one of the phonecalls and one on the street, enroute to one of the meetings. I also, enroute to that selfsame meeting, walked passed this asshole I hadn’t seen in as long. I didn’t bother to stop walking.
I was wondering for a while after that what this unusuality was a part of – turns out one of the people is currently in the same business, and she helped me out with some things. Fatalism is really nice, particularly when money changes hands.

“It’s as I said before,” she whispered. “You aren’t afraid of anything, are you?”
“What does it matter if I am or not ?” I shrugged. I took her arm and drew her to the passage.
“We are the things that others fear,” I said. “Remember that.”
