Aaah this conversation is so intriguing to read!! I’m laughing a bit at those who want to sacrifice just one character because they hate them or are fine with sacrificing everyone, lmao I won’t lie; I tend to play a sadistic character in these types of games… Like renegade Shepard in Mass Effect. It’s just so entertaining haha.
Anyway, I’ll try responding best I can to the questions and stuff you guys have brought up while I was gone!
@Lyanna, I have now included a scene that is respectful but curious for the Q intro scene! I hope it has the right kind of tone that you were wishing for
@Hearts Haha, I wouldn’t call it slice-of-life, exactly; it’s more a chance to get familiar with the new place you get to, along with the new characters there, and for your MC to reflect upon stuff. And another very important aspect that I can’t reveal, but it has to do with the MC gaining certain advantages in fights… Though it also brings problems with it. It’s up to you how to use it, though
And yes, it rains there. They don’t have ice cream, chocolate or any of the good stuff, I’m afraid well, they do have delicacies, but it’s only preserved for a certain kind of people. They have alcoholic beverages, though.
And thanks for the well wishes, I feel better today
@CalcuttaCalling I know it wasn’t your intention! You did a really nice thing all in all and I just think it’s easier to shorten the name sometimes hehe. Though I could always call you Calling if that’s better
And who’s Sophia? My alter ego?
I won’t confirm or deny anything about the course of the story, but I can’t write “deep” stories that are void of tragedy or sacrifice… Especially not ones with the theme of existence, morals and stuff that are included in TSS. BUT the story is determined by the reader too, so there will be several ways for it to go!
@Gwenstn Oh, thank you! I love reading all the discussions and questions here so much, so I try to devote as much time as I can to the forums when I’m too tired to write on the story, I feel like this is a welcome break. And when I feel like it’s difficult to formulate myself here or on tumblr, I turn to writing the story. It has a lot to do with my mindset at the moment, but I try to stay active nevertheless!
@Eric_knight Ahaha yes, that’s exactly how the Coach would react I sure hope you chose the lying skill, or you could end up in real trouble, lmao~
Oh yeah, that would be a little awkward… Well, first it would be pretty shocking seeing how Q found a way to the Sunworld all of a sudden, but then it’d be kind of tense for sure. And you know how bad M is at handling awkward situations!
And concerning the MC getting tricked, well, I’ve been saying from the very beginning that you have to choose yourself who to trust, so don’t be surprised if everything isn’t the way it seems but I do want to confirm that once an RO is your friend or lover, they will genuinely care for you. However, that doesn’t mean that their goals will not conflict with yours or the other characters, you know?
@Lycanthromorphic Ooh, now that you brought it up, I really want to write those kinds of ads haha! If I feel like I have time for it in the future, I’ll definitely take it into consideration, but right now I have to really set a limit for myself, since I also have the patron tiers to work on… But it’s a great idea, and I’ll definitely bear it in mind
@LauraSikdar Oh, poor M… That one tiny segment really made people suspicious, haha. Which is totally understandable; I’d be, too! Though I want to make it clear that just because the MC picks up on something that seems a little odd about a character, doesn’t mean that that character is necessarily going to do something bad; it’d be way too spoilery if I made an MC with the intuition skill able to predict the outcomes or motives of a character. My intention with that particular scene was just to show that maaybe M is more than they seem? How that’s going to play out, though, you’ll get to see at the end of book 1
@Sugi Oh, he’s mysterious alright… As of now, anyway You’ll find out more about him soon!
That’s all I have time to for now; I’m going to travel home from my geandma’s now, so I’ll get back to reading your posts when I get home
