This is a segment from Fate Zero that perfectly encapsulates Urobuchi's approach to writing:

Emiya Kiritsugu’s right hand continued its work of writing while his left hand mechanically shoveled his nutrition – hamburgers from a fast food restaurant he bought while investigating – into his mouth. For nine years, Emiya Kiritsugu had eaten at the table of the Einzberns, who were merely a hair removed from royalty themselves. He had grown tired of the cuisine. This fast food, filled with the sense of slaughter, was more suited to his tastes. Being able to eat without interrupting one’s words or thoughts was better than anything, no matter how you looked at it.

I will say nothing more.

It's actually amazing how searchable this text is.

Yay!

(Perhaps) Amusingly, this question comes up like every year since 2014. I think that strip was uploaded specifically to provide an easier way of addressing it when it came! It's pretty cute, too.

The wholesome parts are just vaguely boring because you have no reason to care about the characters, and the edgy parts are hilariously off-key, predictably written, tonally dissonant and generally just so tryhard and melodramatic that you wonder if Gen Urobutchi was called in to help with them.

1) This was me watching Violet Evergarden. I'm so curious about this Tabi show now, I might have to check it out when it's finished!

2) Don't hate on the butcher :v

Huge thanks to drpepperfan and /u/ for their respective roles in getting us the rest of this, and most especially MuroMaki, for all her work and continued graciousness for allowing us to host it! So awesome to see how far you've come!

Are you referring to the tab icon or the Dynasty Reader logo?

I'm only around 10 episodes into season 1, so there's gonna be some fun times ahead. Also, the ending theme is the most catchy song I've heard from anything that's not Touhou.

Crazy reading this when I think season 2 is on a whole other level from season 1. Hope you feel the same way. Also, nice vocab!

Just what I needed.

I'm not quite sure how to do this but there's a tag that I've been thinking about for a while. Mistaken Gender. A recent example is "Handsome Girl and Sheltered Girl" where a large portion of the plot revolves around mistaking one of the girl's gender. There are quite a few other stories that would very much fit this tag and there's no real equivalent among current tags.

Once again I'm sorry if this isn't how you're supposed to go about recommending tags, but if a mod could consider the suggestion that would be great.

Reposting from here.

^Beautiful.

Oh, I can help! I've been reading She-Ra fics for the past couple weeks (along with Owl House fics, but that fandom is too young to have many really good stories yet). I'm still making my way through the tag, but assuming you're looking for Adora/Catra fics (that's all I can help with anyway), here's what I recommend:

Wow thank you so much, TB! This was a life-changing moment for me. Less my friend, though. Funny how that works out. Sadly I don't have much to offer in return, because while I did read a lot there wasn't a ton that blew me away. Learning Curve was super good though so if you didn't read it yet you ought to!

I just heard a song and decided to share something embarrassing, Something I can't tell my friends or in twitter and much less in the shitposting site I frequent because they would destroy me.

Serenata.... ;__;
This story was so cute and endearing sad! That sounds awful! How one recovers from that...well. My "embarrassing" story is when I was like 7ish one of my slightly older friends in the neighborhood brought a bow and arrow to my house and we proceeded to use the family tent - unoccupied, don't worry - as target practice. Yeah, still can't get over how short-sighted I was in that moment. Imagine shooting arrows into a tent and not realising the damage is permanent? Heh...it me.

Friendly reminder that openly insulting other users and attempting to devolve forum threads into personal attacks and taste policing is a violation of Rule 1 and will result in at least a timeout. No exceptions.

This conversation escalated quickly......there is some possibility that the reverb effect will be significantly stronger and garner them more support in the end. One can only hope.

Bless whoever suggested Tomboy I totally forgot that was a tag.

Hey @Nosebleed don't forget to add the scanlator tag when uploading new chapters! It's the only extra entry you need to fill for series releases :)

Hey guys, I think everyone has said their piece on this topic. Let's leave it be, ok?

Hi. Not going to entertain too many posts in this topic. The user asked a question, let's answer that question.

This is not legal advice, I do not know Canadian laws. However, what I say will generally apply to most relevant countries.

You are not under any threat of prosecution for visiting a website hosting degenerate content. You are not under any threat of prosecution from even going so far as to accidentally click or view illegal, degenerate content. If you were, Twitter and Reddit would be legally precarious sites on their own. You are responsible for the specific content you regularly access of your own volition. On the topic, if you view NSFW content in general, you may wish to read up on specific guidelines for the depiction of fictional characters of certain ages. I doubt there is a concrete answer to this latter question, as legal precedent is finicky on its own.

Best of luck in Canada. Take care.

Edit: If you are still at ill ease, keep an eye on your ISP-linked (or billing) email address. If you're doing something the government doesn't like, your ISP is very likely going to let you know about it long before law enforcement will.

Yeah, just type "completed" or "ongoing", hit backspace once after the final letter, and you should get the popup for the tag search. Not sure why those are a bit finicky...

Nothing wrong with that (hopefully). Should not be an issue going forward, thanks for your patience!

This is a global problem, we're looking into it. Current ETA is a few hours to a day. Will update when we have more info!

Pretty cool to do it in an announcement like this.

The official policy of the site re:licensing is pretty straightforward. We will not upload works whose scanlation begins after the work has already been officially released. If an ongoing series is licensed, we will follow the lead of the scanlator who worked on it previously. If we are asked to remove a series by a publisher or a scanlator, we will comply. We evaluate all other works that get a license on a case-by-case basis.

In this case, we shouldn't have uploaded this series given that it directly contradicts sentence 2. Outside of edge cases like this, we aren't really in the business of removing chapters already uploaded, unless asked to do so by a relevant party.

As for the red notification, it's simply a relic of a previous era, when the policy was thought to be different. The site has a lot of stuff like this, hopefully we'll get it cleaned up sometime.
