That's actually really interesting. One of my stories was following the fourth one listed, but I've been rethinking the plot and its not quite the same anymore. It's sortof leaning towards "Enmity of kinsmen" now. o_e

I suppose for my original story I'm working on now, the plot is "revolt" where the main character is going against a sort of foe (industrialization) that everyone seems to follow.

I was really trying hard to figure out the plot of my other story, but I didn't see one (or pay attention enough) to find a suitable match. Overall, I suppose the plot would be "living with and without tradition simultaneously" AHAHA BIG, BUT TOTALLY USEFUL, WORD! So, yeah, it's almost like a slice-of-life anime where there are a lot of subplots, but no big plot overall (not until part two anyway. eue)

My story, not on KP, is a mix of revolt and fatal imprudence... sort of.
