Basically, yes the implication is the demon healed it for you (I mean, you’ll find they had also cleaned and dressed you and healed any bruises and the like, why not heal the fatal wound as well?) Preserving your mental and physical health is important to them as your body is now theirs as well, they need it in good enough condition to function. And if letting you pretend it never happened up until you truly can’t pretend anymore is the way to do that, so be it.
So… I’m stuck between enforcing the scar now and letting it be a choice, but I will add one thing; if it’s a choice this might mean those with the scar get certain extra content. Not only with choices on how to feel about and deal with the scar, but since I’m such a trauma writer, I find there’d be quite a bit that could be explored especially with MC’s feelings on it (as pointed out by a couple people, particularly in intimate scenes) MC being in denial (and having that denial justified by the lack of a scar) can still yield content and it’s not like I’m going to purposely make it unbalanced (I will try to keep it balanced as best I can) but I don’t want to force it and MC’s trauma about the event isn’t even going to be a big focus of the game. (I just can’t ignore the trauma, is all, because again I write so much about stuff like that)
So, clarifying that, I want to ask again; Should I enforce the scar (and just go forward rewriting a chunk of chapter one, which I admit I was reluctant to do but now after resting a bit I feel like I can) or just make it a choice?
