    I’d like to mention how refreshing it is to have someone point out in-canon that the Miki and Jo white knighting for Mitsuko like she isn’t capable of making her own decisions. The Riot Girls’ reactions were perfect. Also, who wants to take bets on whether Kado stole Touya’s powers and/or is going to use Warp’s hypnotism on him to prevent him from detoxing? Anyone? :D

    Mitsuko’s kinda a gender essentialist and plays both sides–Manic Pixie Dream Girl for the boys, Cool Onee-sama for the girls–but most of her time in the book has been through Jo’s perspective. It was about time for Jo to get a little wake-up call from the other half of Mitsuko’s life. :) (Jo’s also a gender essentialist with feminist leanings, hence his conflict here. And Miki…Miki’s just insanely loyal and that warps most of his other ideals, making him irrational. *lol*)

    Also, who wants to take bets on whether Kado stole Touya’s powers and/or is going to use Warp’s hypnotism on him to prevent him from detoxing? Anyone? :D

    Ha ha! I like that. And I promise you–it’s gonna get full-on crazy in that penthouse.

    Holy shit When I read the first paragraph of the prologue I was already dying to get here and discuss it I mean everything’s starting to cool down but before there’s time to recover the shitstorm returns once more- I’m in love with your pacing.

    I think because we’ve seen Touya through the first and second books as pretty much invincible it kind of bothers me to see him showing weakness. It feels wrong, in a way.

    Also: SO upset that Ochi’s dead actually because Nakajima is one of my favourites and she shouldn’t have to suffer like that and Ochi’s life shouldn’t have ended so abruptly I feel so sorry for him and they’re my otp dammit-

    And Mitsuko is crazy amazing. If she were real I’d have a massive crush on her (sexuality be damned).

    Wow, I’m not really contributing to this discussion much. I’m not what you’d call an insightful reader, unless it’s for a literature assignment.

    Whatever. I’m in love with your story, Miss Sentar. Keep it up!

    P.S. Is there an AO3 category for this? My fingers are itching to type out bad fan-fiction.

    Serials live or die by their pacing, so I’m glad you approve. :) I have possibly the shortest attention span in the world, so I use my own boredom meter as a gauge to keep things moving.

    I think because we’ve seen Touya through the first and second books as pretty much invincible it kind of bothers me to see him showing weakness. It feels wrong, in a way.

    Good! :D

    Also: SO upset that Ochi’s dead actually because Nakajima is one of my favourites and she shouldn’t have to suffer like that and Ochi’s life shouldn’t have ended so abruptly I feel so sorry for him and they’re my otp dammit-

    That’s a very loaded OTP, ha ha! Yeah, sorry…Touya is especially murderous when it comes to psychics, and he already knew poor Ochi’s power, so he could work around it. And Ochi didn’t have anyone around to save him like the Kado/Sachi deal. :(

    P.S. Is there an AO3 category for this? My fingers are itching to type out bad fan-fiction.

    Actually, there isn’t! We’ve been archiving Tokyo Demons fanfiction (we have something like a dozen stories so far) on tokyodemons.com, but an AO3 category would be great…that means the poor fans wouldn’t have to wait for me to post their stuff when I’m so slow to update td.com, heh. I would loooooooooove to read your fanfiction, and if you post it on AO3, I’ll try to get some of the other fanficcers to crosspost on there to buff up the category, too. (If you need an AO3 invite, I do have an account there to post my non-TD fanfics.)
