Model Citizens: Unmasked (WIP - Minor Change May 23, 2018)



Nope, I refuse. Finley’s staying alive and getting romanced by my MC and that’s final.


I hope so too. But am worried about whose death is going to have a big enough impact and Finn seems likely :(( THEIR ROMANCE STUFF VIA RENA’S TUMBLR IS CUTE AF AND IN GENERAL IS SUCH A SWEETHEART


Absolutely! The MC’s reaction after the unmasking scene isn’t set-in-stone. There’s a couple of different options. (Ex. (I guess blurred in spoiler for anyone who wants it to be a surprise but there’s not much spoilery here anyway) You can go to the police as mentioned, try to track down your Ex and get more answers out of them, or, for the more shaken MCs who just cannot process this right now, go to a friend or your family, as well as one or two other options.)

:grinning: As of so far it’s true that failing to unmask the Ex, for any MC like yours who does want to do that, would be their only “failed case” so far.

And you’ll see exactly why by the end of the Case One (well, before it, really. I’m excited for you guys to find out because it makes things a bit more complicated for the MC and is also kinda sorta why they’re in Nickelport right now so it’s a fun time for everyone.)

Aha, hahaha, haha…

That blackmail material might not work out so well, my friend.

You’ll see why, of course. :slight_smile:


So I’m not sure whether to count @idonotlikeusernames’s and @blackrising’s hopes for not-death as votes for guesses on whose gonna die b u t, this makes the counter now; Fin: 4, Daisy: 1, V: 1, Ricky: 1

:grinning: Awww, yay! I’m so happy you like them! Honestly Finley is so much fun and I love them dearly and with all my heart their romance is gonna be so much fun to write it’s so dramatic and I love it and I love them.


Let them smooch

:clap: LET :clap:THEM :clap: SMOOCH :clap:

:clap: LET :clap: THEM :clap: SMOOCH :clap: HAPPILY :clap: AND :clap: WITHOUT :clap: PAIN


This I can do.

This might be more difficult to do knowing me and my writing style. :smile:

Especially with Finley’s first kiss scene.





Of course there’s more than one kiss. I may love drama and action but I’m also a sucker for cute and probably way too cheesy scenes as well. You need both for a healthy writing diet.


Query: is there a Lucy kissing scene?


There is absolutely a Lucy kissing scene.

Hey all! I figure I should get back into the habit of progress reports now that we’re moving again.

So first things first which is the actual progress report: Things are moving steadily and I’ve been focusing on the non-love memories. I’m working on Raf’s right now and that’s been progressing pretty well, I’d say! So that’s been going pretty well.

On a couple of housekeeping notes, I’ve also been going back and fixing up a couple of spelling or grammatical errors here or there. I know that sometimes changing the earlier scenes can mess up people’s saves (which I hope doesn’t happen here) but if it does then that’s why and I’m very sorry. Another small housekeeping note, you may see the name change for the author. Like I’ve mentioned before I’ve been using the pen name ‘Rena B’ (which was always just letters from my first and last name scrambled around… before getting too lazy to come up with a fake last name, aha), but I’ve been considering changing it for a while and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to stop using a pen name for this story as I get more and more serious about it. Just wanted to give you a heads up in case you’re at all confused as to why that’s changed!

Have a lovely day!


So while the wait happens, anyone want to speculate on plot stuff? I feel like Nickelport’s best and brightest in the hero scene might also be the same people behind the chaos? Just to keep status quo?

This is utterly speculative and probs has very little to go on evidence wise so don’t quote me


Hm… maybe. I mean, I could see that being possible, especially considering the Exes stole from a major bank at the beginning right? I mean for Lucy it could be argued that it was just for the thrill of it, but we know that Raf’s feats of evil are generally more planned out and he tries to minimize casualties… It would be understandable if he had no qualms with robbing the bank if he knows that the people with money in it are slum lords and such. But I don’t really think either of them are exactly trying to be Robin Hood. I like the thought of it though, it would definitely explain why Ricky’s job is so time consuming. I mean being a politician is one thing, having to constantly be working against the evil agenda of everyone else in government is another thing. (although not that different from reality i suppose)


I think it will be amusing to see the ROs discuss when they will meet each other with the MC being oh-what-am-I-doing-here-?, don’t you think ?

And yes. I think all the characters have their own little secret. And another life. Everyone ! I could have been influenced with our MC’s job ~.


Hehehe was browsing around and reading the First Likewise Heist (hehehe still laughing about the situation) and I have to come here and voice a question that’s been in my mind for quite a while.

Does our MC get to romance a masked hero/supervillain or “only” their counterparts (I mean can the Reporter fall for a masked persona after the impact the Big Ex Reveal had on their live? Do they know about the “other life” of the person they flirt with or not at all?)? For the rebound Exes it is evident but I have my wheels spinning as of how the MC could be swept off their feet by a certain someone and boom another Big Reveal and “NOT AGAIN GODS WHY ME!” shaking fist at sky scene xD. Aaaand now I’m thinking about the big question mark that is the Informant too.

Keep up the good work! :smiley:


(Oh and just a heads up as to why I’m not responding to the theories- it’s because I don’t trust myself to give everything away. I know I would if I let myself. But just want you all to know that I adore them all.)

Likewise has always been quite the… character. Even before they became a big thing, ahaha.

Some of the ROs definitely do have double lives. You’ll meet all the main romance options as themselves (well… minus the Informant, who you meet as… the Informant, ahaha). You might also meet and flirt with a couple of heroes or villains along the way (or people somewhere between the two). So, yes, there might be a chance for a moment or two along those lines. :blush:

Thank you very much!


That’s my boy! Likewise has gotta be Vince, right? Although, come to think of it the idea Ricky of all people is leading a double life a costumed superhero or villain is for some reason strangely enticing as well. :thinking:


:smile: You know I can’t say anything! But you’ll find out, eventually. :wink:

Well, you’ll see who wears what mask eventually!!


I did a redraw of a pic I drew of the Vs a few hundred posts ago! I’m not linking to or reuploading the original version though because it’s old and I’m tired of looking at it :,)


Hello yes e x c u s e y o u and your amazing talent- how dare you create something so beautiful and amazing and wonderful. This is amazing and wonderful and did I say it was amazing already? It is. It absolutely, 100% is.


Its good art.
Is it me or is the jawline of the person in the middle seem darker and more outlined? every time I look at the drawing it I’m drawn to it.
The varing blends of reds are nice.


It is a little, I’ve been playing around with brushes and only just now found on that I like but I wasn’t completely used to it yet when drawing this. I did the lineart for Vera’s face first and went more heavy-handed on her than the other two by accident

Also, thank you!
