Hiya guys. It’s been a while. Some of you may be wondering where I’ve been. Some of you may have simply decided it was ‘Este not wanting to translate again’, and some others might have speculated that it was Fallout 4.
Actually, it was neither of those really. I got sucked into a fanfiction.
Usually I don’t recommend fanfictions, but this one is special because… well, because I like it a lot, and there’s nothing you can do to stop me.
So anyway, if you enjoyed Log Horizon, I would definitely recommend you give it a go. The stuff about mobs coming alive, the stuff about importing modern technology, and the stuff about the politics with the natives and stuff is featured as well, but it’s actually good. It pretty much is Log Horizon, but with a more coherent plot, and a more standard ‘realisation’ of game mechanics and features.
i.e. no people suddenly making black goo because they have low cooking levels
Not just that, but somehow he manages interesting characterisation without people feeling out of character.
Oh oops. Right, forgot to mention that it’s a Sword Art Online and Zero no Tsukaima crossover. I didn’t particularly like either original story too much.
Kirito and SAO in general was too melodramatic, parts of the writing felt too contrived, and I hate these sort of harems.
As for Zero no Tsukaima, at first I disliked Louise’s excessive tsun, and following that I got really sick of Saito’s stupidity and lack of responsibility.
But I enjoyed this fanfiction nonetheless, so please give it a try as well. The writing is a bit rough for the first four chapters, but the rest of the long ride is pretty much smooth as it gets.
