@Anarore_Kriptih Ah yes, I also caught on the mic thing during my play through, just another bit that make me wonder why would mc tag along with the two. For a hot second I was certain mc would say something and have it taken out of context to forge drama. But guess not yet
@Nhia I personally didn’t take the example you have given except the last one as mc being naive. And even for the last bit, I feel like “not knowing how a reality show works” and “not knowing to hang out with strangers at night in a quiet place is not the greatest idea” aren’t quite the same level of naivety.
For me, I see them as calm and collected (relatively speaking), but could underestimate their fame and achievement which makes sense consider, in my case, they have parents who constantly tried to talk them out from doing music and “get a real job”.
I think part of how I perceive mc came from not just anyone but O entrusted mc to be the leader and look after the band at the party. While leadership could be demonstrated in different style, I still take it as a hint of mc having some level of sense of responsibility and a capability of making a good call. Surely you could say nope and just sneak out, but that part is at lease optional.
@parisgracex G/V’s part makes a lot more sense to me I would say. I see it as a mixture of being lost, nearly avoided an assault, and a false sense of security toward celebrities. Which is funny to say, as this would be an example of mc’s naivety, but oh well. I was not creeped out by that character, but the fact that we got an option to ask if they were taking photo of us, made me go conspiracy mode lol
@slizard I think getting that level of involvement with a fan would always be a bad idea, seeing how complicated and toxic fandom culture could be. Maya being a minor surely isn’t helping. And again, we are in the middle of shooting an exploitative reality show, so I won’t be surprise if all these interactions with Maya will come back and haunt us somewhere in the future
@notapretzel Party scene didn’t bother me as it is optional, I could avoid it and keep my mc consistent in my head. The walk however, is mandatory, and thus I struggled to find a way to make it fit. Guess I should take the advice and let it go.
I myself didn’t put much thought to all the stuff that happened in one chapter. But fwiw, I think the author have mentioned ch. 2 is still kind of an introduction, while ch. 3 would be where things really kick-start. So yeah, we’ll see how it goes.
As for an additional option, from my understanding, Maya’s storyline is an essential part of the story to explore the fan-celebrity dynamic, and her relationship with Seb would be a sort of reflection of mc’s own relationship with their parents. And being someone who dig for antsy family drama, I’m totally onboard. It’s more of the scenario where it happened I have issue with, than if it happens at all.
