    It’s more of showing the delusions and blindness someone with trauma can have. Having a story with more complex characters makes stories more interesting, which is what I attempted in doing so.

  • Dear Shawn,

    I like your take on this topic. You hit some points that are pretty crucial to understanding the reliance we have on electronics. Almost everything now is seemingly connected to something electronic/internet-related, however, it’s more of how you think of our reliance. I personally would say that our reliance is a good thing, and it…Read More

    Mitsu Hamada. The name runs through my tongue like a lemon with hot sauce. Mitsu was a trained military-grade archer, most known for his work in Japan. A hitman you could say he was, as he almost took down...

    • Jason,

      I loved your story. First, the introduction was very-crafted -> you drew me in with metaphors and a cliffhanger that continued all the way through the story. I also loved how you added small details into the plot to describe the characters, like that Kevin moved to Tokyo from New York. Finally, your story progressed through a lot in a short period of time, but it didn’t feel rushed at all. Overall, I thought it was awesome! Thanks for writing!

    • I am interested in understanding the dichotomy between the author and the story itself. The storyline captures so many different layers and does so through the use of extensive figurative language and tactics. I like how we get a deep dive into the characters thought processes and innate beliefs.

    • Dear Jason,

      I absolutely loved your story. I liked how you brought up Mitsu Hamada as this hometown hero, but then you gave us a huge U-turn by saying how he slaughtered your family. That got me hooked it was so well written I really like how went in-depth with your story and tried to make us feel as immersed as possible. I really felt immersed. Your storytelling is amazing and I like how you really went to the fullest to make us feel for the protagonist and how you made your characters so complex. I like that Kevin moved to Tokyo from New York. Finally, your story progressed through a lot in a short period of time, but it didn’t feel rushed, and overall was a great read.

    • Dear Jason,

      I am impressed by your post, “Tokyo fire” because it discusses an interesting story about Mitsu who was a hitman. I think it’s impressive how Mitsu was being looked for although people believed him to be a hero.

      One sentence that stands out for me is, ” Mitsu slaughtered my family, and his status as a “hero” has put a giant cloak that blocks the horrible things that he has done from the public eye”. I think this is impressive because this shows how you can see the perspective of someone who believes that Mitsu is not a hero rather than someone who thinks he is a hero

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like the way you use your words to develop your story.

      -Emmanuel
