Am allllmost done with the translation of the artbook Saiunkoku story. (As usual, will be posted at the blog).

Some notes on random fictive tropes:

I loved the part in Book of the New Sun where there was the storytelling contest, and Severian puzzled over which stories were the best and by which criteria they should be judged and what each story really meant, and what the motivation of each teller was in telling it.

The reset ending in part 6 of a certain manga: it somehow interests me to essentially end as an AU and negate everything to create a "better world"?

Can the "and it was all a dream and they woke up" ending work well? For some reason I want to see someone pull it off.
