I have to say, I discovered both Stockholm Syndrome and Lima Syndrome last night and have finished both of them thanks to power-reading and not sleeping! I want to cordially thank you for giving me a massive amount of quality Sly Cooper feels and an amazingly written OC that I can't help but fall in love with. I wish you the best in any future writing endeavors (hopefully a Sly 4 story?) and eagerly anticipate the epilogue for Lima Syndrome which I'm sure will make me cry!
You are so welcome!! Thank you very much, I’m glad you enjoyed the stories so much!! And yes, there will definitely be a third story for Sly 4. Hopefully I’ll be able to get started on it here in the next couple of weeks (I’ve been ridiculously busy). I’ll be posting updates on how writing is going here as well as a Lima Syndrome commentary over the summer, so hopefully that’ll help tide everyone over. Thanks again!
I just remembered I have to post the last chapter of Lima Syndrome later today.
There’s going to be an epilogue, but still. I can’t believe it’s nearly over.
And I’m a little scared of what the fan reactions are going to be, tbh
First of all, I just want to say what a FANTASTIC job you've done with your work :) I'm an author myself (maybe not a very good one) and I really admire the way you you write. This is probably one of the funniest series I've ever read :) Keep up the good work! I also want to ask, when do you think the next story will be up, or what will it be called? I know you haven't even finished Lima Syndrome yet, but my curiousity is endless :) lol
Thank you very much!!! I really appreciate you saying that! I’m not sure at all when the next story will be up, I haven’t really gotten a chance to write much on it because I keep changing my mind about how it should start. I do have a name for it, but I’ll wait to say what it is until I have a release date in mind because kalicoofdoom did an amazing promo poster for it and I’d like to be able to give you guys a date to look forward to. I’m glad you’re enjoying Lima Syndrome!
Can you please put a playlist of Kaia's favorite songs on the Ask Kaia! Tumblr page. I think it would make the experience more enjoyable! I'll even offer you some brownies! - J the Anon
DONE! Really sorry this took so long, J, I have been so busy with school I couldn’t find two seconds to rub together. I’m actually home sick from work right now, if that says anything. I hope you enjoy the songs though, and I really enjoyed the mental exercise of thinking through Kaia’s character enough to select some favorite songs for her. Thanks! Do I still get brownies?
I don't know if you heard about this but, have you ever heard about Second Funniest Podcast? If you don't know it's a web podcast that starts Kevin Miller (the voice actor of Sly Cooper) and his best friend Justin Worsham (the comedian guru) talks about Sly Cooper, other video games and some random funny stuffs. It's really funny I laugh so hard while I was listening this! They also bring special guests from other games and the crew who made the Sly Cooper games!
I have heard of that! I listened to one a while back and loved it, but I don’t really have the attention span for podcasts, lol.
What's this about haters? While it infuriated me that the latest chapter of Lima Syndrome ended on a cliffhanger like that, I stopped and thought about why it made me mad, and I think I've got an answer now. I care about what happens to Kaia. I care about a fictional person, an original character in an established canon no less, and I'm concerned when she gets hurt. It's rare that I find something like that, and I treasure it like the literary gem it is. I can't wait for more! -Coriale
Oh, wow. Thank you very much for your kind words, Coriale. I’m sorry the cliffhanger angered you so badly, the next chapter will be up this Tuesday, hopefully that’s not too long. I’d contemplated updating it early, but I want to give myself as much time as possible to write the sequel before ending Lima Syndrome, that way you don’t have to wait too long.
Ooh another Sly fic writer! Howdy! :D I'd come off anon to greet you properly but I's super shy. *hides* Just wanted to drop by and say hello!
Hallo!! It’s nice to meet you! Not to worry, I’m super shy as well. Thank you for saying hello!
kalicoofdoom’s response to hearing about the hate on my fics, bless her feisty soul.
Ruaaawwr. Them haters going down. >C Pictionary style! Just gimme a few minutes....You'll see...
Oh boy… I’ll be waiting on AIM with baited breath to see what you come up with! XD
You shouldn't worry about posting your fanfiction to the Sly tag, since that what's a lot of people do. Now, it can clog the tag if you don't use a Read More on the chapter, so you would want to use that. But you shouldn't feel like it would annoy fans! We're looking for stuff like fanfictions in the tag! :) Oh, and it sucks that people go out of their way to be mean to you. >:(
Well I’ll certainly think about it, though I might wait until some of the hype has died down. Thanks!
