Rocket Palette Snippet chapter 1 . 12/18/2010
I'm pleased to see a decent P4 story about the implied chemistry between Yosuke and Chie. I would also like to commend you for keeping Rise and Teddie in character. Keep up the good work.

I really really liked this. I felt every emotion that Chie was feeling until

" Yosuke dared to sit next to her. He would have otherwise kept a very large distance from her, as she had powerful legs and he had a very weak groin area. And when the two collided it resulted in massive amounts of pain." That was a bit of a too big of comic relief for me to handle. Therefore it lost the seriousness afterwards.

But don't get me worng, I love that line. In fact it made my day actually.

Just found this and - being the Yousuke/Chie fan that I am - I had to review.

Very nice job! I really like the way that you capture the jealousy and angst of a broken heart, without it being so overwhelming (because I don't think that would be like Chie at this stage of her development). Nice eye for details (like about her jacket, and the subtle descriptions of the moments), and a strong sense of story.

The only thing that kind of took me out of the story (although very briefly) is where you step into someone else's head for a moment. Since the story is told from Chie's point of view (at least this first chapter), I think it would be better if we didn't suddenly get insight into Yousuke's thoughts. The Yukiko conversation is a good example of how this can be done: Yukiko "sounds" this or "seems" that...or Chie guesses at her feelings, without the reader being told them. I think that technique would be more conducive to the Chie POV than suddenly jumping into Yousuke's head every once in a while. I know that you're writing from a third-person perspective (and other authors jump around in different heads a lot), but a chapter is really supposed to be taken from one person's perspective: it creates a stronger bridge between reader and character and lets them really commune with each other.

That's not to say that I don't like the story or that I don't think that you've got a great voice - you do! And the subject is one that's dear to my own heart, so I'm really interested to see where you take this.

Great job, and I hope to see more!
