The Exploration Of Katawa Shoujo The Visual Novel
Iwanako is a bit of a throw-away character as Hisao's would-be girlfriend, one who could be expanded on quite a bit. But she does work well in one sense; you get the feeling that Hisao didn't really know her in spite of his attraction to her, and his connection with the other girls is significantly more meaningful than the one he had with her. It's also interesting to see how his letter affects him differently in each of the routes, depending on how connected he is to his old life.

Ah that is true what you said about Iwanako above, she is mainly there to set off the whole plot. Through being a Smallrole Big Impact in her role in the game. Oh yes you can't compare this interaction to the other girls that happen later on.

Yeah i get the sense from the scene Hisao wasn't close to her. I get the sense as well from Hisao at time's he wasn't that close to anyone really, not even the friends he mentions. Ah yes the letter, that's something i will cover at their respective points in each route, as Hisao response to it as you said differs in each route.

Next chapter, i will bring up what it hink about the whole business between the two. Which i felt was something that is very open to analysis and different views.

Oh yeah how do you link a liveblog to the katawa shoujo tvtrope page, keep trying to, but nothing works, so help would be appericated.

romancechina88,

When you add or edit a new installment, you should see a gray button above and to the right of the text boxes, and below the link for editing help. Click the button and follow the prompts to link it to the Katawa Shoujo Visual Novel page. I hope this helps.

I don't think you could call it Grey and Gray Morality in this case, since it's not a matter of conflict.

Those are some good observations about Hisao. One thing I liked about Hanako's route is that the assumptions Hisao starts out with and has for much of the route get challenged over time, and eventually proven wrong in the path to the good ending.

For quotes as epigraphs, you should do them as follows. The first line should have two hyphens and a >, then the quote. The second line should have two hyphens, a >, and another two hyphens, before the attribution.

Incidentally, which fic did you set up a trope page for?
Valiona
You have a point, probably the best way to call the above would be both sides have a point. Though Grey and Gray Morality doesn't necessary need conflict to work I feel, but that's me.

I agree on the Hanako route comment, that was something that I liked about that route as well, along with Hanako subverting some of the stereotype that many series tend to do with her sort of character, felt refreshing to see the game do that. Since I will admit shy girls can easily be grating for me if that is all there is to them, same with nice characters as well. Likeability is a trait that can be good in characters, but I prefer characters who are interesting more than the former.

Thanks for the tip on quotes, will do that in the future.

Also did what you suggested on linking it, but still hasn't worked. Since every combo I could think of wouldn't connect, what words etc. did you use to connect your blogs to the fic's you went through.

The fic is Ice and Fire, a Code geass fic that has Lelouch in Britannia, but Kallen as Zero this time due to her family being killed off in the prologue. Written by Alsmash who has done a fair amount of fic's in different fandoms, mainly Code Geass. He asked me to do it after I had set up one or two other Code Geass fic TV tropes pages, as well as put his fic's in some recommendation pages as well. I like it, even if I'm not a fan of kalulu overall, his writing and plot is that good for me to overlook that, plus I keep neutral on pairings as a whole.

romancechina88,

In the first text box, put the namespace for the page, which is "Visual Novel" (no spaces) for Katawa Shoujo. In the second text box, put "Katawa Shoujo" without spaces. Let me know if this works.
Valiona
