Watching Ore Dake Haireru makes me kinda want to start a new story with a less terrible MC.

I believe one thing that can explain that dissonance between cynical readers like me and them is suspension of disbelief. Once you accept something as fact or take it for granted that It would happen,you don't think too hard.

WanderingSwordNuub · Jan 15, 2021

Once my suspension of disbelief crumbles even a little,I start looking at the framework more closely and then find more things wrong with it. The only explanation for those manga readers is that their suspension of disbelief is crazy strong combined with the novelty of not reading every isekai like me.

WanderingSwordNuub · Jan 15, 2021

It is for the same reason people like chinese xianxia novels,it's novel and new;that makes it exciting but then when you look more closely it's the same tropes and cliches done over and over in a different flavor.(the last statement applies to the MC of Ore dake Haireru)Always the same execution of the tropes,never done meaningfully or has any emotional impact.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 15, 2021

It's also possible the repetition of tropes is comforting to them, so they keep coming back for more.

Maybe that's why this story isn't so well-received since I'm trying to make something different with the MC. clear.png

Damn, just noticed my one star rating is increasing. 😂

FailerQt · Jan 15, 2021

Did he give feedback? One stars are like a 50/50 between trolls and people who read maybe 1-5 chapters and just came upon something they don't like and instantly rated it a one.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 15, 2021

No, no feedback. I think there are around five new one star ratings and they don't really say anything. No one ever does really. clear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 14, 2021

Goddamnit, almost all the novels here that I believe have good writing have higher reading level than mine. They're at 11th to 12th grade while I fluctuated between 9th to 10th and 7th to 8th grade.

And it's really hard to try to bump my story up to that level. I'm trying with the Fiora chapter I'm currently writing but it's not going well.

Farok · Jan 14, 2021

A high Reading level only means they are using more words than fewer people understand. Don't boss yourself too much with that, and if you're worried about using too simplistic words, look up synonyms. clear.png

FailerQt · Jan 14, 2021

It seems fine to me though. Can you perhaps tell me what chapters you use to grade them?

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 14, 2021

Just the two most recent chapters.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 14, 2021

I just realized I could just accept commissions to write stuff for people instead of begging for donations if I really want to commission images. That's a thing apparently.

You have a patreon?

No.

Thats sad.

Aliryuume · Jan 14, 2021

We can't always see the sun and the clear blue skies, there are nights and storm clouds that darken the sky.

In a book I read a few months ago, in the book's Afterword his author compares the writing of a story to sailing on a sailboat (without GPS) in the ocean that leads to some unknown place

In the Afterword to this book, the author also wrote that sailing with the sun, a clear blue sky and the sea breeze is a very good thing, but there is the night or storm that hinders navigation.

Aliryuume · Jan 14, 2021

He also wrote that when night comes you have to try and guide where you are seeing the stars. And when the sky starts to get dark because of the storm that may come, the browser has to choose between:

> Try to come back thinking about what he did wrong that left you close to a storm.
> Prepare to weather the storm.
> To face the storm without any preparation.
Aliryuume · Jan 14, 2021

If I understand correctly:

sailing on a sailboat (without GPS) represents the journey of an author writing his stories.
a clear blue sky and the sea breeze represents the support that the author receives while writing his stories.
the night or storm represents the negative criticism that the author receives while writing his stories.

Damn, Marina and Fiora head to head with Sherry really close behind. clear.png

Fiora and Sherry best girlclear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 13, 2021

And now Fiora's winning. I guess people really like confident girls like her.

FailerQt · Jan 13, 2021

Fiora & Sherry will have quit an interesting dynamic I think. Fiora is the confident one who won't be shy about her affections to Hugo and Sherry is the shy one who technically has first dibs on Hugo. Those two are likely going to clash quite a bit in the early stage of their relationship.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 14, 2021

And now, Fiora and Marina's toe-to-toe again.

I'm surprised how many people are okay with incest. 

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 13, 2021

Oh damn, Re;Zero actually has an episode where Subaru goes back into his past (real life).

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 13, 2021

The last time I asked if people want to see Earth again relating to Hugo's original self, they all said no.

Well, want it or not, it's going to get brought up once

Just looking at the summary, I can already tell it's one big touching character development for Subaru.

Let's traumatize Hugo yet again. clear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 12, 2021

Ends up starting the Fiora chapter too, because I want to write down all that worldbuilding stuff right away.

She's going to be the extra chapter at the end of the arc. Like Felicia's chapter at the end of the first arc.

Look forward to that, if you are Fiora fans. Dunno how many of you are around. I should make another poll.

how long ago was that poll? and what site was the polls taken from? i can't point and laugh if i don't have a target! lol

that said marina sure is popular. clear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 12, 2021

It's from QuestionableQuesting.

That poll is still open even to this day. I started it waaay back months ago when I first posted on that site.

Yeah, she is. Probably the most popular character for now. Gotta poll it again though to see if people's opinions have changed or not. A lot of readers who get through the first arc where she's a prominent character have stopped reading altogether. clear.png

loshi1505 · Jan 12, 2021

mmm, makes sense why the newer characters votes are abysmally low.

i mean i would think felicia would be more popular than nicole at least! lol

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 12, 2021

Yeah, Nicole doesn't even have that lovey dovey interactions with Hugo.

Feels bad that someone dropped my story because they didn't like Fiora and Felicia. clear.png

Doesn't help that the character design I stole for her is simply god tier.

I would've made her a waifu, if I hadn't gotten the plan to pair her off with another guy that is not Hugo. Heh, sorry Hugo, you ain't getting an elf waifu, it seems.

I'm still open to future possibilites.

FailerQt · Jan 12, 2021

Ah okay, I thought it was already pretty much locked in already, as I doubt Hugo is going for a large harem. What is the limit you've set?

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 12, 2021

The only limit is whether they will fit into the story or not.

FailerQt · Jan 12, 2021

Ah alright.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 10, 2021

It's funny and nostalgic at the same time, reading old comments when I just first started my story. All the predictions and ideas people gave me, with most of them now not even reading the story anymore.

loshi1505 · Jan 11, 2021

lemme guess, you plan to use their fetishes against them and black mail them to continue reading your story!clear.pngclear.png

He is starting to change right now, but change is extremely gradual and slow. If you start changing Hugo too fast now, you actually undermine your own story.

FailerQt · Jan 10, 2021

Alongside that, you have a catalyst coming up that might have an influence in changing Hugo to become a more reliable and confident person, namely Sherry. Hugo was a major fact in giving confidence to Sherry, so why not turn it around and have Sherry play a major role in giving Hugo confidence in himself?

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 10, 2021

Exactly. I agree with all of that! clear.png

Spoiler

But Sherry might not necessarily be the catalyst that aids that change.

FailerQt · Jan 10, 2021

Ah okay, I am curious who or what it will be then. I always thought it would be Sherry.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 10, 2021

I think it might be fun having Mira be able to cast a certain magic that not even Ilymhyrra is capable of. Make her someone with overwhelming magical  talent, to the point that you can call it a cheat.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 10, 2021

I already got an idea for that unique magic as well.

loshi1505 · Jan 10, 2021

how will that impact the main story? by subtle changes to Ilymhyrra?

I think I might have another idea how Hugo can accept going the incest route with Marina.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 10, 2021

Inspired by how Rudy ends up marrying Eris, even though he no longer loves her at that point.

loshi1505 · Jan 10, 2021

clear.pngnot sure i like where this is going. does it involve hugo feeling guilty?

i'd rather all of the wives have a good foundation for their relationship imo. it could also be a good means of why others may not have become his wives.
