You mean in the air?


#264

That would be Weden. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#265

Weden’s going to be my boo in my first playthrough.

(Cause it’s boo like boyfriend, and boo like… :ghost::face_with_hand_over_mouth:)


#266

God, it’s so fucking rare to be swept away completely by a WIP in a mere chapter, and you accomplished exactly that. Not only is the world you have placed us in incredibly interesting and complex, but also the characters are distinct, funny, and real. I also love the use of an unreliable narrator–I don’t think I have seen a CoG do it as successfully as this. I fell in love with your writing.

Really though, I am so pleased you are back!


#267

Wow, thanks so much!! I know I’ve neglected this WIP, but I’m excited to get back to working on it in the next couple months after I’ve published A Wretched Heart and Mass Mother Murderer.

Glad to be back. :ok_hand:

Dayum, Oz is now in the lead on the favorite characters poll. :scream:


#268

Lol nice :sob::sob::joy::joy::joy:


#269

Bruh

So, fans of TEM are in luck. Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been bouncing back and forth between half a dozen WIPs, which obviously isn’t the most practical way of going about things.

That’s the kind of writer I am, but I also realize that it’s a really unsustainable method in the long run. So, I’ve decided that as soon as I publish A Wretched Heart and Mass Mother Murderer (this should take a couple months), then I will finally start working almost exclusively on TEM.

This has got to be the second most enjoyable story for me to write, and I also have the entire outline finished. Due to my impending layoff at my job, I might have more time on my hands than usual, too…

All that said, you guys can expect me to start writing this WIP at a breakneck speed starting in late Spring. From there, my goal is to finish it and submit it to HG in about 4 months.

So look forward to the most ROs I’ve ever written, a brutal murder mystery, and more twists than anything else in my catalogue.


#271

That sounds amazing for us, but please do not forget to take care of yourself.

Oh man, I am so ready face it all. Bring it on! (ง•̀_•́)ง


#272

This is the type of shit Blihja would do. :skull::joy:


#273

Can I cuddle with ghost bae though?


#274

Funny you say that. I’ve been slowly working on Chapter 4 for the first time in like 9 months. I’m writing a scene where the MC and Blihja drink a potion that’s basically like acid. :dizzy_face:

So you all believe me:

OH BOY! I just realized non-alcoholic drugs aren’t suitable for elementary school kids, so off to the adult section we go.


#275

Sure it can be suitable for kids, just include the message of “don’t do drugs, it’s bad for you”. Jk


#276

Adult section?
Son I think that’s at least 8 months in the gulags, followed by immediate execution.
Also a kick to the jaw.


#277

I hope we get to kill the Captain at some point.


#278

god right


#279

Did you miss the part where you included explicit sexual content in the game? :thinking:


#280

There’s no explicit sexual content in the game. And before you talk about Blihja taking off her shirt, that is way below what is considered mature, even here.


#281

I remembered this game having some fairly lewd scenes. So wait, Acid like the drug Acid, not the solvent?


#282

So far it just has sexual references, a snooping scene, and one instance of Blihja taking her shirt off. But that’s all still less explicit than the stuff I had in TMB.

Yeah, acid the drug.
