LIRA 2 (Question 2)
Based on the short story ‘The Storyteller’ by H.H. Munro, write your responses to ONE of the questions below. Your response must be between 120 – 150 words. Provide reasons for your answers and include references from the story where necessary.
2. Who is the better storyteller; the aunt or the bachelor? Why do you choose one over the other?
Based on the story ‘The Storyteller’ by Saki, I think the bachelor is a better storyteller than the aunt. Firstly, the bachelor is very imaginative. He adds some wordplay, like horribly good, to attract the children’s attention to him. Unlike the bachelor, the aunt tells the story without any creative wordplay in her story. Secondly, the bachelors add details to his story. He tells adjectives and details that makes the children to feel eager to hear more, while the aunt’s story is too straightforward, which eventually makes the children feel bored. Thirdly, the bachelor is expressive when he’s telling his story. He uses intonations which gives excitement to his audience, but the aunt is monotonous. She tells the story in the same intonation throughout her story. Based on the reasons above, I strongly think that the bachelor is a better storyteller than the aunt.

LIRA 1 Question 1
Write your response in about 120 - 150 words to the question below. Be sure to provide reasons and examples from the short story to support your answer.
"Is there any part of the story that you like or dislike? Why?"
Please post your answer in the ‘Comments’ section below.
Based on the story, I dislike the ending where the Hamilton brothers were accused of doing something they didn’t because of the narrator’s childish solution. I think that the narrator should’ve try to make up with Richard and Philip instead of trying to frame them out of jelousy. For twelve years the narrator didn’t make any effort to change himself in the years he spent there. Instead of proving that he can also be a dependable and friendly person, he decided to frame the Hamilton brothers by ruining the image of the ‘Golden Boys’ and made it looks like they’re the culprit. The narrator should not think of his mother’s comments negatively, even though she keeps comparing him to the Hamilton brothers. Instead, the narrator should think of it in a more matured way and realize his weaknesses, thus trying to overcome it and change for the better. These are the reasons why I dislike the ending of the story.
We know that we’ll have to say goodbye to everyone we meet eventually, whether they’re going far away or at the end of their life…
But goodbyes are still so sad, aren’t they?

So truee~ xD
Ib Endings Guide
So, yes, there are multiple endings in Ib. How do you get them? Well!
This guide is extremely spoilery, so do NOT read this if you haven’t beaten the game at least once. Even then, it’s only recommended that you read this if you want to know exactly how to get the other endings and aren’t willing to experiment on your own.
Also, it doesn’t include any puzzle hints or anything. So don’t come to it looking for that.
(Note that I’m mostly posting this because kouri has major hints on how to get each ending on his site. So it’s kind of what he wants.)
Finally! I’ve been waiting for this for a LOOOOOOONGGG TIME~!
Nath, I heard and SAW that! You pervy! XD
Yeay for me
Guys! You really need to try this new Visual Novel!!
I’ve downloaded it yesterday and just played it 40 minutes ago!
The story is nice, it makes me shed a ‘manly tears’.. (I’m the type of person who’s not that easy to cry for something)
Here’s the thread on Lemmasoft forums (In case you didn’t know, it’s a website for visual and kinetic novels development, where you get to explore more about it) : http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=19616
And in case you’re lazy to check out the thread, here’s the download link:
Aww, it said that Pewds is the BEST!
I knew it!! ヾ(^ ^ゞ
I pushed you around because i believed that,
Our relationship would never break.
If only i knew better…
I pretended to never think about it,
But just when i realized it, it was too late,
We always walked together in this love,
But when i looked by my side….
I was already lost in a maze and paralyzed,
My one and only, yet most grave mistake,
You were the one who said you loved me,
So i mistakenly thought,
No matter what i did you would never hate me.
How wrong was i….
When i fell in love with you,
You were no longer by my side,
If i can see you once more,
Ill convey it to you,
“Im sorry for being late”
