Nothing weird about it to me. Maybe it's a regional thing?
It doesn't seem that weird to me, either. In fact in Denmark or Sweden 'no problem' would be directly translating what we'd say in that situation, which might not be a very good way to discern if it's proper English, though... I think a German would have said 'Keine Sorgen', which would be closest to 'No worries', though, so in terms of basis in the Germanic language tree, 'No problem' seems an okay response.
I've known several people from different areas of the states, and they all used it the same way: if someone asked them to do something that could, in some possible way, be an inconvenience ("Can you run upstairs and bring me my wallet?") they'd answer "thank you" with "no problem", as in, it wasn't a big deal. If someone just asked something generally ("pass the salt"/"can you show me how to operate this machine?") they'd respond with "you're welcome". I asked them about it, and they said it's just how it feels natural - if someone asked them for directions, and then thank them, they'd find it dismissive to say "no problem". It makes sense to me as well, since that's how I use it in Hebrew too.
That was probably more than you needed or wanted to know. Ah well, forgive me, in the spirit of the holidays (it is Hanuka right now, and Christmas is coming up, isn't it?)
We're talking about Chris here.
You should have stayed with the police, Chris. If anything went wrong, you weren't guilty so you didn't need to worry. Now, if anything went wrong, you're dead.
Jeremy in Portuguese is Jeremias. It's kind of an unused name here.
This is so awkward, I can't even...
I hope not maniacally.
Oh, Jeremy, what a naughty mind! I hadn't even think about it this way!
And then put her in greater distress.
Chris, you are really killing me here... goddamnit. You could be smarter than this, you're a realistic teenager.
Good, huh, Chris? I'm relieved to know you don't go around telling strangers you found a dead body.
And I didn't even knew you could think.
Great, she's not that dumb after all. But he can still follow her discreetly to her house.
WE CAME OUT ALIVE!!!
HOW DID MOM NOT RAISE US TO BE SMARTER THAN THIS, Jesus Christ...
She still hasn't left the car, technically...there's still time for this to get worse.
Also, good god, didn't mom tell you not to get in cars with strangers, gurl?
In shining armor or in camouflaged soldier clothes?
Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
This is the greatest example of how this song can go wrong ever.
Then he waves and drives away.
What a nice guy.
Why does it take something horrible happening for me to meet a boy?
Haha, oh, Chris. You met two boys earlier, y'know.
I've got to get home.
Wow, I resumed what took me like, 9 pages in less than 1 page.
Then Lucy comes over, and I tell her again that her parents can't force her to marry a stranger. Then I asked her what happened.
Oh, THAT collection of ships.
Lucy: He was really nice.
Oh, so very nice, he is.
Then they go to the mall to let the phone there, and they find Randy, and Randy starts chasing them.
Oh damn it.
New theory; Jeremy is Amanohashi. YOUR SHAVED MOUSTACE DOESN'T FOOL ME, PEDOCIPAL!
I'll never listen to this music peacefully again.
..... Will there be any jumpscare at the end?
Depends on what you mean by 'jumpscare'. It's sound glitches at the best possible part. There's also this one, which is the whole song slowed down and messed with just enough to sound horribly right.
With jumpscare I meant The Exorcist's girl appearing at the end and screaming or something.
Nope! No jump scares in either of those, just horrible music made better.
This one has a jump scare. It's from a series of 'vlogs' that tie into a book called Skeleton Creek that scared the crap out of me the first time I read it, because I was stupid enough to watch the 'vlogs' that corresponded to each chapter too.
Oh, then NOPE. I had enough with Amnesia, my heart just can't take anything scary for the next month or so.
For fuck's sake, I just hate it when stuff get posted more than once.
Chris, you're not helping the situation.
How do you know him, Lucy? WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING BEHIND MY BACK?
Avoiding questions, huh, Jeremy?
Avoiding questions, stalking little girls, offering them rides.
Amanohashi - the early years.
How are they chasing the car? They may be fast with the belts, but they're probably without them now.
What does that expression means? It's like, speeding the car up or something?
Yay, we escaped the almost friendly werewolf gang in the car of a psycho!
BE ON YOUR GUARD, CHRIS!
And you're humble too.
Chris answered this for me:
NOPE, HE'S JUST AVOIDING QUESTIONS AGAIN!
Chris' so close-minded. To meet a boy he must be from school or a boyfriend?
I thought Lucy said the guy was much older.
Yes. It means pressing harder on the gas pedal to suddenly accelerate.
Also, Jeremy is totally not sketchy at all, nope.
See, Lucy? Thinking is healthy sometimes.
That you're old and ugly.
Yeah, there's something people usually ask when they see a guy the other person know.
"Hey, Random Name, this is my school group partner."
"So, are you going to marry him?"
Stop lying, Chris.
I hate it when people do that with me.
After puberty, it isn't called tickles anymore...
Pfff, such a killjoy.
She CRIED? In so little time? Damn, Lucy's a tickle master.
TO JEREMY'S SECRET TORTURE CHAMBER!
... Or just Lucy's house.
YOUR SECRET TORTURE CHAMBER! I mean, nope.
Yeah, you kinda just got rescued from there.
THEY'RE NOT CRAZY!!!
Just Randy being Randy, don't mind him.
GASP HE KNOWS IT ALREADY! Didn't remember this.
No, Chris, it kinda IS foreign.
Friends? I don't think we're in friend terms yet, young man.
Good thing Chris agrees. She would be DUMBMASTER if she accepted that naturally.
Lucy's so dead.
That's also something people usually go around saying. "Hey, friend, I know a boy with a car!"
Is she angry?
She's not looking, but she's not not looking? Man, that's confusing.
Lucy only have eyes for you, Chris.
"Hum, so, was he your secret boyfriend?"
... What the fuck, Jeremy?
WE'RE ALIVE AGAIN!
SUNGLASSES DO NOT WORK THAT WAY JEREMY!
Hey now, don't be a hater just because your sunglasses aren't as cool as his.
In fairness to Christina, you always do sound very angry when you speak German unless you really take care. Jeremy, though... you'd think by "FRIENDS WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO MARRY LUCY TO CREEPY OLD GUY" Chris would assume he was maybe not a very good friend to have.
Damn those wolf-belts.
NO, LUCY, DON'T LEAVE US ALONE WITH HIM!
Christina: Thanks. Goodbye.
Jeremy: It's about Lucy.
What about Lucy?
Jeremy: If you come with me, I'll tell you.
NO FUCKING WAY! This can only be a trap.
He wants to get me alone and tell me secrets about my own best friend?
I'm not sure I trust this. And Lucy's waiting for me.
Yes, Chris, be suspicious. I'm so proud of how less-dumb you grew up to be.
But just a little bit.
We get the option to go with Jeremy or follow Lucy, and I obviously choose go with Jeremy.
JUST KIDDING we're following Lucy of course.
Christina: Lucy's waiting for me. I have to go.
I hurry away without waiting for his response.
Good. 'Cause his response could be a stab on your neck.
Why wouldn't she? Lucy can be a total bitch all the time sometimes, but when she's not being a bitch, she's a sweet friend!
Lucy: Come inside, quick, before anything else can go wrong.
Haha, stuff really keep going wrong in this game.
Lucy: Don't worry, my parents still aren't home.
Do you mean we're aloooone~?
Phew, indeed! We survived!
Sisters before Misters, I say!
Lucy has a far better assesment of danger than Chris. Far better.
Curse? Interesting times? What the fuck are you talking about?
You better not. I don't think the curse's about interesting times, but dangerous times.
Christina: I just wish I understood what was going on!
So many strange things have happened in the past few days, but I can't see how they fit together. And why are they happening to *me*?
That's because you're Protag-chan.
I need to talk to Lucy about...
Wow, that's a huge lot of matters. Let's talk about all of this, if possible!
Christina: Now that he's not listening - who is Jeremy and how do you know him?
Chris, I think she answered it already.
Lucy: Jeremy Bowman. He's a little older than us. I think he's about to start university.
He's actually younger than I thought.
Lucy: We're not really friends - we tend to argue. I played a prank on him years ago and he's pretty much thought I'm an annoying brat ever since.
So, he's going to kill you and everybody as his revenge for the prank? And, Lucy, friends tend to argue too. A lot.
No, you're more of a bitch than a brat, but not always, of course ^w^
Dads always mess computers up and put the blame in their children. At least that happened to me a lot.
