I can’t pick any romantic options for Akira. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi @vocaloidsrcool . Thank you for playing the story. Sorry, due to my non native English skills I didn’t correctly understand your question. Could you please explain it again?

I can’t tell Akira that I love him, and I cannot tell Akira that I want to kiss him. Those choices are greyed out and I can’t click on them.

I see.

Spoiler alert!

Those options are not fleshed out just yet. I will eventually add them later.

Don’t worry everyone, many more ROs will be available as the story further unfolds. :wink:

I was thinking since female parent sounds weird maybe you could just write “Her”. Maybe in italics to emphasize it’s someone specific and has a different meaning.
Honestly you could write mother too since formally sounds very distant in feeling.

I know plenty of people who spoken of their parents in that nature.

English is very much a language best understood by listening to the speaker’s tone.

I agree with the recommended italicized mother or her options. It would look like the MC was being disparaging about the title to single it out in particular, in their grumpy, mostly private thoughts. I tend to auto-replace ‘female parent’ in my head with mother for this reason; it just feels more natural to native speakers like me to go about it like that. :thinking:

Thank you @LadyUmbreon89 and @tooweiss .

I really appreciate your feedback. I used “female parent” trying to be as derogatory as possible. I wanted to give the idea that Shiva was not a single bit a mother in the MC opinion. Italians like me are mother lovers, calling someone mother is always a good thing. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

If calling her ‘mother’ in italic hits the target in a better way, I will immediately change it.

@Gilbert_Gallo I had the worst of the worst relationship with my mother, so I call her mother if I had to in a most neutral tone possible but my twin and older brother have a normal mother-child relationship and they call her mum or mom…
Like @tooweiss and @LadyUmbreon89 said it works but female parent actually sounds odd…

Hey @Gilbert_Gallo is this cause of the old saves?!? Hmm, my first comment in this post is the exact same thing.

Sorry to see this. Anyone else is having the same problem? It didn’t occur to me in my last run.

If it helps, I am using old saves

@Empress_Nightmare could you please try starting a brand new game and see if that issue still occurs?

Okay
