Story deleted on FF.net? Any reasons for this?
Based on what's been/being posted at the Spoiler Thread, Sasa seems (if I'm reading it right) to be struggling with Creator Breakdown. Rough patch IRL, his ideas for where the plot is to go next are getting rejected by the readers...
Here's to hoping some more of Pacific's US Navy ship girls appear, and the fic (hopefully) getting on track soon...
Basically Sasa was dealing with a lot of criticism and then someone made some pretty insulting insinuations about his ideas and he basically dropped the mic.
Found that out too, and tbh I felt betrayed initally because all that discussion I had with him on the forums and contributions here felt wasted. I've recovered a bit after finding out the rest of the details.
The proverbial "straw" comment was unfortunately delivered with not enough tact - not intentionally insulting, but still not tactfully. Which compounded with Sasa's increasing RL issues of decreasing health and work problems, didn't help. Several others have pointed out that the quality of the most recent posts were much lower compared to prior his hiatus, so there were those warning signs.
Well, from what I'm hearing the author handed the rights of the fic to another guy on a forum I frequent. So there's prolly gonna be more Pacific references considering the person in question is an avid Pacific follower.
I suggest we all take a time out, wait a week or so to see what happens next before we add anything on the situation to the page. What say you all?
Might have to alter/remove the links to FF.net, SB and SV, though.
