Karan's Bakery / Cravat pastries
« on: November 18, 2015, 08:34:48 pm »
A friend of mine thinks she might have figured out what Karan's famous cravat pastries are!
I present to you the gato cravat!

They're also called torsades. Thoughts?

@Weisel yes. just yes.

Check this out. It's a video from Japan intended to teach basic English. It's... kinda disturbing. But also hilarious.

Also, the guy in the blue shirt? He went to college with my Japanese professor. Now he's a real estate tycoon.

Oh man, I wish I had seen this before, because I really like what Weisel said. Somehow the idea of the city just being like 'whatever' about it didn't sit right with me, and I love the spin Weisel put on it. I also thought that they might use someone's homosexuality against them to manipulate them, like, 'if you don't do this thing for the good of the city, we're going to stop allowing you to waste your sperm/eggs in this extravagant manner, so give us what we want." I mean, No. 6 tends to just kill off people who do stuff they don't want, but I imagine where a more subtle touch is needed, this is the kind of information they could use to guilt-trip people into doing what they want.

Shion, of course, is oblivious to all this. XD

Oh dang you better get a good grade on that one because it's pretty freakin' awesome ;3

And by awesome I mean sort of tragic :'(

Villanelles are really hard to write. I've never done one before myself, so kudos.

Aww yessss Zelda! I'm like 3/4 of the way through Twilight Princess. I was also playing Phantom Hourglass, but the Temple of the Ocean King makes me want to throw the DS across the room so I kinda gave up on it, haha.

@Ghosty if those are the kinds of games you like, you should really really really try Ghost Trick:


Hahaha I can't stand the heat back home, which is why I went north for school. (I live in Maryland usually but  now im in NEw HAMPSHIRE baby!)

I feel like Karan is the kind of mother who would want her son to be educated, so she would have given Shion The Talk sometime when he was a kid. And maybe they would have had another conversation somewhere along the lines of "is it okay for a boy to like another boy." I don't really know if that would be necessary or not because idk how they regarded gay people in No. 6... it seemed like from what Safu said that sex is supposed to have a primarily reproductive purpose. But of course humans are gonna do it anyway for fun, because that's just how they're wired...

My primary romantic relationship is very analogous to Nezushi, so I think I used to use this fandom as a coping method. Like, I projected us onto them or them onto us, I'm not even sure. That sounds awful, doesn't it? XD
(It's okay now though. Nezumi came back and fixed all his emotional issues. The little sh*t.)

For me as a native English speaker and language/psychology nut, this is totally fascinating. It's like you guys are saying that for you, English is almost the natural language of sex or erotica, even though it's not your first language and it's harder for you to use/understand in every other context. Maybe I'm reading into that too much but that's what I'm hearing. I should do a study about it XD

I guess, because the words have fewer cultural connotations for you, it's easier for you to project your own notions of sex onto them? Maybe?
I'm... gonna stop nerding out now XD

I like French smut because I love French in general, lol. I think it sounds much more beautiful than English in just about every context. Plus I like that you can use "sexe" for genitals. That probably sounds weird XD

@Yuneyn yeah I haven't read any more No. 6 fics in French in a long time, lol. I have done a little better with the NGE fandom. (Kawoshin ;A;)

@Yuneyn What do monolingual non-English speakers do then? O.o

I like smut in French (sorry Yuneyn). The problem is there isn't a lot of it in my fandoms, so the odds of finding anything good is pretty small. I found this one website with a grand total of 3 French No. 6 fics. One had no smut, one was just kissing, and the third one was a full-blown ****. I was not pleased. =.=

please never use those in a serious fanfiction. please.

Don't make me start a poll to see who prefers c*ck versus dick. Please don't. XD
I've heard some people theorise that the one you prefer is like the whole pop versus soda debate. Like, which one you're exposed to more. C*ck sounds way more vulgar to me, whereas dick is just mildly so.

@Ahiku oh they'd definitely do it in a forest somewhere. I just hope they never do it in Karan's bakery O.o that's so unsanitary...

Some smut authors need professional help. Like, seriously.

And Weisel, that image is spot on. XD

Okay, let's see what the worst word for dick I ever heard was...
I can't remember... maybe I should go through my old chat logs, I used to make fun of bad smut with my friends XD

@AoYokai you're seriously telling me that one time you read a smut fic where someone used the word "noodle" for "dick" and they weren't joking or trolling?

(Wait, is dick not actually censored... is that because it's a name or because i put it in quotes?)

It's either anatomical accurate, vulgar or an overused euphemism xD

@lawlya that is EXACTLY what I was trying to say, just in a less long-winded way, so thank you XD

@AoYokai I'm not trying to say that there are NO good ways to say things. It's just, they're very limited.
Maybe we should compare notes and see which inappropriate terms we all like XD

Also for me writing smut, specifically NezuShi smut (because all my other writing has been on hold for a couple years), I don't find the terms to be too difficult... Like, it's a little bit of a challenge, but if I'm writing a sex scene at all, it's for a very specific purpose, and it's usually focusing on what's happening as a result of that. How do I put that into better words... It's focused on the emotions of the scene, not the mechanics of everything.

@Weisel Yeah, see, that's the thing. For me, what's going on in real time and the emotions are both really important pieces of the puzzle. Okay, the actual sex thing (for normal m/m Nezushi, the part where a d*ck goes somewhere and then ejaculation happens) is not important. But all the foreplay is really important, because it's super emotionally charged. If you look at the smut scene I most recently wrote in Fateswap Beyond, you'll see that it's like 75% foreplay and Nezumi internal monologue, and only 25% actual sex. (And they never took their boxers off either because Shion would've freaked the f*ck out lol)
But in my ideal world, I would have words at my disposal that I could use to make the actual act of sex feel the same way it does in real life, instead of relying on everything that comes before and after to make up for the weakness of the writing of the actual act.

I split the topic b/c it got so random and people were asking for it. Here's the only on-topic comment in the moved thread, which is what AoYokai last said:

Back to the doujin topic, anyone read the one where Shion hires someone to pretend to be himself because he dies five years(?) before Nezumi comes back so that person now pretends to be Shion when Nezumi arrives?
