I Can Hear Your Thoughts, but it's not like I'm Telling You or Anything!
Hey hey, how's it going! Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this and my novel, at least the chapters I've released so far!
A few words before you start reading the actual thing:
Author-kun is a huge anime fan, so expect a lot of Japanese names, honorifics (-kun, -san, etc.) and terminology, I suggest looking them up if you don't know what they mean to understand the relationships between some of the characters better!
(The rest is updated as of 30/9/2017 to utilise Honeyfeed's most recent additions for a better reading experience!)
To not get confused about dialogue and transmitted thoughts, apostrophes (') indicate the thoughts Taichi hears OR a past dialogue/thought, while quotation marks ('') indicate current dialogue. Do know though that when a dialogue has apostrophes (' '), they're either used to quote someone or something, either out loud or in a character's thoughts (E.g. [Taichi's thoughts] I said ‘ordinary person’… OR [Out loud] ''I’ll quote Higashiguchi-senpai on this: ‘IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?!’ ''). However, these two are interchangeable, so if ''I’ll quote Higashiguchi-senpai on this: ‘IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?!’ '' was a thought Taichi heard or a dialogue somebody recalled, it would become 'I’ll quote Higashiguchi-senpai on this: ''IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?!'' '
If none of the two are present, that means Taichi is acting as the narrator.
Anything written in bold is either info about where or when an event takes place (E.g. Date: April 11th or Current time: 9 AM) OR something Taichi wants to emphasise something with his narration (E.g. Observation #8: When curiosity falls upon Karasuma, it gets the best of her. or if it's just one thing he wants to emphasize ironically: ''he also happens to know a lot of things.'')
Italics, on the other hand, are used to indicate thoughts Taichi hears (E.g. ‘Phew, that was close! Imagine if he were to see me sleeping on the seats!’), but if a point in narration/a thought/a dialogue is a plot point, it will be written in bold as well (E.g. As if something was snatched away from her and she could have prevented it. [if the plot point is in a dialogue or a thought, it will be written accordingly])
Additionally, you'll see italics being used when a character emphasizes a certain word in their thoughts/dialogue (E.g. ‘’It is unfortunate!'') to help get the right meaning of their words through.
Also, CAPS DON'T REALLY HAVE A ROLE other than to add to the comedic aspect of a scene!
Last but not least, the asterisks (***) indicate a completely new scene to the overall event! It might seem a bit confusing when said like this, but you'll understand this concept perfectly when it appears in a chapter!
Without further ado, I hope you enjoy reading ''I Can Hear Your Thoughts, but it's not like I'm Telling You or Anything!'' (Lol what a mouthful of a title)
