      I had a nightmare the other night that you changed your avatar. I was actually upset that you had abandoned [The Pages and the Books] for a generic anime girl

        The word nightmare was a bit tongue in cheek, but I was just amused a bit by the fact that I hadn't realized it wasn't a real memory till I saw your avatar today and had to ask whether it ever happened. I was about 40% expecting you to say that it hadn't been a dream and you had just changed it back. That sort of thing always amuses me.

      I can't help but get especially nervous when a mod starts reading my stuff lol. Especially since you're a far superior writer by far. Still, I hope you enjoy my fumbling about Groon.

      I just finished the Erogamer. It was astoundingly beautiful. I hope you can continue writing astoundingly beautiful things.

      You could make a bit of money writing. A lightly-edited ebook version of the Erogamer now that it's complete would be an easy way to test the waters.

      I've started reading the Erogamer, and I just finished Book 1. It is extremely rare for fanfiction of any kind to give me chills and a feeling of horror, especially on QQ. But the paintings Cindy saw, once I realized the terrifying implications, had me genuinely disturbed. Well done.

      I just read the anonkun quests that got shout-outs in Erogamer, holy crap I can't believe you managed to sell the Little Death Note plotline so well. I was genuinely invested in Ero Light and Pachi.

      I guess you read my mind, that matched up way too well
      Thank you for everything. <3
      Hope level: 5/100 -> 20/100

      I guess you can add "made a completely satisfying ending to a story that had to be terminated due to IRL issues" to your list of literary improbabilities, I've never seen that one before.

      Time for me to get back to hyperbolic spiral wrangling, thanks for the ride~

      I was reading/re-reading erogame and I saw your thing about wanting more erogame stuff to read.

      And I realized, did you know that there's erogame glowfic that's only visible if you log in? You probably do, but I thought I'd mention it in case you didn't. Most of it's pretty short and most of the long stuff is M/M, but it does exist.

        I think it means novels similar to erogamers. Or stuff based on ero like games/systems

        Glowfic is the literary tradition descended from "Luminosity" that is about being aware of your own thought processes, psychoanalysing yourself and not acting thoughtlessly. There's a massive RP/cooperative storytelling corpus on https://www.glowfic.com/

        It all started with a really good Twilight fanfction with the premise "What if Bella was a sentient being?"

        The smart and self aware Bella was such a crowd favorite that the Author has inserted her in basically all the worlds.

      Thank you for writing The Erogamer. Somehow it seems that every other chapter is like a punch in the guts, in a good way. You manage to put real emotion into this story in a way few authors have, ranging from existential dread to real love, famial or romantic, to guilt and gratitude and everything in between. So, sincerely, thank you once again ,from the bottom of my heart, for writing The Erogamer.

      I had to come here and give you some compliments. Your writing is amazing, seriously. Do you have a patreon, because i would pay for this, and i think many others might feel the same way. The Erogamer is among the very few webserials like Wildbows work and the Practical Guide to Evil, that i always read straight away when they update.

      ""Starry," Charles whispered at the gawking alien, as quiet panic began to well up in him, "you need to start thinking high-probability thoughts. Right now."

        This had me laughing so hard I almost fell out of my chair. Then I went ahead and fell over so I could commit to saying ROFL. Beautifully done, sir. It's always amazing to have an author masterfully subvert a parodically exaggerated trope.

      Randomly, before I forget again.... Given SV's increased publicity on their allowance of (clearly marked) NSFW stuff, have you ever considered creating a thread up over there for Erogamer? (Even a read-only that lags behind the current story by a couple of posts?)

      Frankly, this story is my usually gold standard go to example for things that pass SV's NSFW requirements, so....

        I think I'm happy with the current readership. I don't want to take on the work of dual-posting either, but mostly, I'm happy with the current readership and with having the story behind an account-required wall.

      Would you be willing to have a mirror of The Erogamer hosted somewhere not behind a loginwall? That would lower the barrier to recommending the story to others substantially.

        I don't want to have to maintain it, and I don't want to have to worry about updating two different sites in synchrony when I go back through a dozen chapters and retcon available stat points because I miscounted and put in an extra 5 stat points, like I did yesterday.

        Though aside from that I wouldn't mind, especially if it only mirrored Book 1. I do feel like I get most of the psychological benefit on my end from readers who are voters, and I don't want to have to track votes in two places, so people going to QQ to read the last chapters would be better from my perspective.

        6.a would do pretty well on its own somewhere and is semi-SFW, I'm just not sure where to put it.

        Whenever I finish writing the third part of the 3-parter. I don't have a predicted finish time; my writing sessions happen whenever I have enough energy to write but not enough energy to do all the tasks that are more important than writing. Or when the urge grows too great to resist.
