The Science of Art
The Science of Art is a story written by eth. It ran in Special Issue 11 at http://s2b2.livejournal.com/331509.html, and is mirrored at http://www.shousetsubangbang.com/mirror/the-science-of-art/.
The story follows two girls, Kai and Rita, as they navigate art school, boys on Tinder, and overly complicated Asian families one meme at a time.
Thank you so, so much for reading this. It's a very personal story to me and some parts were difficult for me to write for that reason, but I really enjoyed writing it overall. It ended up being longer than I thought but well, that's not necessarily a bad thing!
I'd like to give a very, very special thanks to Luna, for letting me write the story of our OCs-- Rita is her character and this wouldn't have happened without her. Also to Michey, who encouraged me along as I wrote this and told me to not quit, and to anyone who agreed to read and comment on the shitty first draft (Ari, Kii, Stella, YL, Blo at this count.)
And finally, to the one who showed me how wonderful it is to be in love with your best friend. You know who you are.
