I can see Azalynn trying to live up to what she claims (or is that live down?) and failing as the rest of the band forms up around her.

The original bit of phrasing that this hails from is one of my favorite scene starters of all time, entirely due to your influence, Ben. Part of it is the excellent use you've put it to, and the other is your ability to so excellently play off of it.

This one just pushed that envelope :)

... Well, I should hope so (the last part, I mean - whether it's your favorite is of course entirely up to you). Unlike "This will be a good life - good enough," I'm reasonably sure that opening is my invention. :)

not that we were, but, I ran across this today. It's evidently a crossover/parody image with something else I'm not familiar with, but I dig it on its own merits.

Mind you, Mio possesses certain qualities that militate against her being an effective swordswoman, primary among them the sad but inescapable truth that she's... well, a coward. :)

On the other hand, a sword-toting high-school-rock-band bassist is not even slightly weird in the Dìqiú/Zipang system. I fully expect that, in/on both worlds (as well as on Ishiyama and certain parts of Tomodachi), the configuration of the sword pocket on one's gig bag is just another ordinary and expected layer of the transaction at, e.g., Guitar Center.

"May I help you?"

"Hi, yeah, I need a gig bag?"

"No problem at all. Is it for a guitar or bass? Short scale or regular? Katana or ninja-tō? Left- or right-hand draw? Do you need a shuriken pocket?"

Obviously it's a shot from another music video.

Or Sumire swept the poor girl up in her wake and now Mio's wondering how the hell she ended up an action movie star.

I don't know whether to be pleased I'm thought of as dependable in this regard, or dismayed that I'm so predictable. :)

Well, I guess you're in the right place, then. :)

I was thinking last night, and it occurred to me that one of the main reasons why Azalynn is enjoying her self-imposed mission so much is because there's so much love in the little peer group she's observing. Azalynn is happiest when she's near people who love each other; she's not picky about whether it's the kind that involves gettin' it on like crazed mandrills or the kind that involves giving somebody else the chestnut from the top of your montblanc. And there's a helluva lot of Type 2 in Hōkago Tea Time.

That would really make cause-and-effect confusing, though. Azalynn goes back to high school because the Great Magnet pulls her there, and ends up in a band?

It makes more sense this way, even if it's less efficient.

No, the underlying scenario would've been the same as that presented in the FD on HTT - Azalynn went to the school they attend in order to get more information on the amazing band whose demo found its way to Kate. The difference would've been that there was no actual Azusa Nakano, and it was the identity Azalynn assumed as part of her Jump Street strategy.

But, like I say, I like the real Azusa too much to shuffle her out of the deck like that. Besides, she's likely to be the first one who suspects that the New Kid isn't what she seems. She's a skeptical little beast. :)

I have a bit, but in the interest of full disclosure, I was only using the reference as shorthand for the fact that Azalynn infiltrated a high school by posing as a student. It's not actually meant to have anything to do with 21 Jump Street. :)

Oh hey, speaking of which, let me just run this by you guys: I've got the opening sequence (three scenes, plus the one already posted as a teaser) for The Federation Lives Forever finished, and I was looking at it tonight and noticing that it actually makes a pretty nice little story all by itself. Hypothetically, would you rather have that now and the part with the actual plot arc in it later under separate cover, or just wait and have the whole thing at once?

Just a straw poll, nothing scientific, but I'm curious. With the school year under way, I don't really have the internal bandwidth for long-range planning, so I've been playing with the idea of doing something like a prose equivalent of those page-at-a-time-when-they're-done online comics. Sort of an extreme version of the "sequence of Minis that get compiled at the end" thing we've done a few times. I'm not sure whether that would be fun or annoying from the reader end, though.

   On the one hand, I like having the minis popping up as fun and engaging bits here and there? But on the other, if they're all pretty much part of the same whole, I don't mind waiting to see the finished result.

That being said, if you're in a position where it would be easier on your end to push things out in short sequence, as a sort of..."Mini Parade", if you will, then I'll happily follow that breadcrumb trail.

I have very mixed feelings about this, which means that you should probably just do whatever you feel like. On the one hand, I am always eager to read new material, even clips and teasers and the like. On the other, finished pieces are admittedly better to consume, and waiting for a sequence to be done reduces the chances of the author getting to the end and realizing that a bit back near the beginning should have been different, which maybe you're pretty confident won't happen in this case, but is something that occasionally bugs me a bit about the entire genre (genre? medium?) of serialized fiction.

Oh heck, I'm not confident of anything. This is an experiment! A serial experiment. But hopefully without quite as much gratuitous surrealism as that phrase might tend to suggest in anime fans of a certain age. :)

Gratuitous surrealism leads to psychological indigestion.

Psychological indigestion is that feeling you get after certain works (Lain being one of them, 2001: A Space Odyssey being another for me) where you're not sure what just happened, but you feel as if trying to understand it might cause irreparable damage.

I wasn't suggesting that you should take our comments lain down (sorry). Anyway, I for one promise not to get overly critical of what has been sufficiently disclaimed as an experiment in a New Thing.

I'd prefer having the whole thing at once, but I'm not picky.

Hmm... well, I guess you could always wait until it's all there before you start... :)

   "Mio, I've been thinking," said Moose. "Maybe what you need is a number where you can really cut loose."


Wake up, got another day to get
Through now, got another man to see
Gotta call him on the telephone, way-oh
Gotta find a piece of paper
Sit down, got another letter to write
Think hard, gotta get a letter just right
Hear a ringing on the telephone, whoa no
Gotta write a little later

No such thing as tomorrow
Only one two three go!
Time, got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head

If I tell you what I'm doin' today
Will you shut up 'n get outta my way?
Someone asked me what the time is, I don't know
Only know I gotta go now
No time, try to get a watch repaired
No time, never got a thing to wear
Hear a ringing on the telephone, whoa no
Hear a ringing in my head now

No such thing as tomorrow
Only one two three go!
Time, got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head

No such thing as tomorrow, all we want
Two three go!
Time, got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head
Tickin' in my head

Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick tick tickin' in my head
Time!
Got the time tick...

I just wrote the scene reffed in the original post. I didn't end up using "One Big Rush" for it.

Instead, I used the 2001 Live in San Francisco version of "Summer Song". The intro has some very lovely guitarist-bassist-drummer dialogue happening, particularly from 1:15 to 1:48.

In-universe, "Summer Song" is a Crush of Love song, but the Art like to cover it at their live shows and it's on their 2408 Perth concert album, The Art of Noise Beyond Thunderdome.

Merciful Grodd, I can't believe Live in San Francisco is 13 years old.

   Clearly, they are so bad that they should be in detention.
