A late “happy new year” to everyone.
Just a little update on the state of this: I had run into a plot obstacle so I had been trying to research into it. After all, I want certain setting aspects to be either probable or “quite possible” since certain parts of the plot are kinda “huh, really?”
With that in mind, I had been researching how Japanese corporations deal with each other because the b2b culture is very different from Western so-called ideals of capitalism. Yeah. I’m using Japanese corporate structure as a huge setting, so I’d like just a tiny bit of realism.
Honestly, one of my biggest pet peeves with people writing about other cultures in fanfic circles is the complete failure and disrespect to understand differences and realism. Oh, “Syncope” is hardly realistic, but I mean, for example, heavily using “yakuza” as a plot device in a middle school. It feels kinda cheap.
Anyway! This is going to be an interesting year for me. I hope it’ll be a good year for everyone. OH HEY, IT’S ELECTION YEAR IN THE U.S. THIS IS SLIGHTLY IMPORTANT!
