This Seth dude sounds a lot like someone else I know.
So.....guess who screwed up and forgot to take some screenshots? THIS GAL.
PS: I'm sorry if screens seem out of order or missing further down the line, I was apparently struggle bussing to get the screenshots loaded.
However, thankfully it wasn't anything too important or crucial. We last left when Iris was just about to call Alden and ask to meet up some place to finally confess her feelings after TWO YEARS. Her heart would have to wait a couple more days though as Alden was going to be out of town for two days and was leaving fairly soon. What is a protag to do now?
REGRET. That's what we do.
I thought it was TWO YEARS.
And you failed.
Well...that would have been a really short game and rather easy if the call had been successful.
I KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO.
Buck up soldier.
Sounds like my typical Friday nights.
Hey. I prefer text to talking on the phone too.
SHE'S THINKING CLEARLY. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS IN A VN PROTAG?
Seth. I love you.
Iris berates him and Seth apologizes. <3
That story really wasn't as long as you think it was...
Seth. Marry me. Right nao.
Well maybe if someone didn't talk about their fantasy boyfriend all the time you would hang out more...just throwing that out there.
I swear...if you get attacked....
Oh. Okay. Texts are okay.
Apparently didn't the get the shot but it's a text asking if we like mysteries.
FROM A MYSTERIOUS NUMBER.
I LOVE MYSTERIES.
Well then why did you ask oh clairvoyant, creepy phone number?
So logically we decide to go check it out.
Demon squirrels square dancing?!
DEMON SQUIRRELS SQUARE DANCING WITH CHUCK NORRIS?
It's dick Devlin.
Hon. Something tells me he ain't telling you shit.
He just leaves (no...my screenshots didn't get all messed up again)....
The bad kind?
DAY 3! Is this game only a week? I honestly have no idea....
Really? Using Seth AGAIN? That guy is a saint.
Uh...maybe he's doing other stuff? Although I shouldn't be one to talk...
THUS WE CALL HIM.
Ladies and gentlemen...I present our astounding protag in all her glory.
I love you. So. Much.
GUISE. WHAT DO WE WANT TO DO WITH SETH.
besides the dirty stuff.
seth the feelings i am having i can't escape them
LET'S WATCH ANIME TOGETHER and also hold hands and we can call each other ___-sempai and then confess our feelings on the rooftop while the FREAKISHLY HUGE SUN sets.
I want to play a game :D
Playing a game indeed.
Watch an anime. Your definition of dirty Seth is probably the same as mine... which means that the show you're watching is probably alright for Protag-chan for it to be a choice.
He knows the meaning of the word "shoujo-vision", obviously anime.
Also dear god Iris, hearing you go on and on about how perfect this one guy is is as wince-inducing as trying to pull a burn scab off and as true to life as weevils sneaking into your pancake mix.
SETH YOU MAKE MY KOKORO GO DOKI DOKI <333
My answer is anime, of course~
If Seth somehow converts Iris that would make this VN the best thing ever.
Of course if won't happen, but let a lady dream.
So this is what it's like to befriend Bella...
Let's watch some anime!
But where's the fun in that?
Iris. I'm shaking my head at you.
D'aww. Yes, I find that sweet. I don't know why...I JUST DO.
His...CDs? Well...I suppose that might work...
Hon. That's like 80% of anime.
A sexy one.
There are episodes where they count the number of pantie shots.
This...doesn't seem to be going well. I don't see a sunset in our future. Or hand holding. : (
NOT THE BITCHITUDE YES.
I like you. I'm assuming you like yourself. THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.
THAT'S NOT THE WAY TO HIS HEART.
BLASPHEMY. BEST. DAY. EVER.
Protag is confused about her feelings. Check.
CONVENIENT END OF THE YEAR/GAME PARTY.
CONVENIENT DAY OF THE WEEK DISCOVERY.
LEAVE YOUR BITCHITUDE AWAY FROM THE MYSTERY MAN.
I suppose there IS that stranger danger factor...meh.You didn't get attacked while walking on a dark street by yourself...you should be okay.
...........well probably nothing good. Just...just throwing that out there right now.
WELL BROKEN FORUM?
Yes. THERE'S NO WAY THIS COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG
YES WE WANT TO SEE THE FAT BIRD ARE CURIOUS.
What could possibly backfire in meeting a stranger without telling anyone, possibly in a dark alley?
Normally, no way in hell. According to game logic, of course.
Game logic is ALWAYS the correct answer.
LET'S THROW CAUTION TO THE WIND! WEE!
......seriously? Is he ALL you think about?
Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Kay. I'm not a morning person either...but I would actually want to get up to meet some mysterious texter who may or may not know something about the super special boy I've liked for TWO YEARS.
Srsly guize. Srsly.
When the sun is up? SEIZE THE DAY WOMAN.
That would qualify as morning.
.....why are you whining?
Cause you're a stalker.
Just like game logic...VIOLENCE IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER.
The same old couple? Or is the park populated with old couples?
....STAHP. MAKE HER STOP.
Uh...dramatic music change.
Uh...I didn't mean...choking her to make her stop........
...you...you wanted the phone?
Well...he is running. So chances are he won't listen.
Annnd with that I leave this lovely game for the night. As Bastion is almost finished downloading. : )
Good God, now I might have to play this just to prevent Iris from inflicting herself on anyone.
Yeah, Iris is really annoying me as a protag. Although I did play through another path and she wasn't as annoying when she wasn't obsessing all the time....
Love Seth. Find Iris a tad grating at some points.
Damn it. Nostalgia attack.
i was seriously screaming, but then I realised that there are young people that are actually this stupid and it's just being realistic.
Really don't like Iris, she doesn't have a lick of common sense and she's obnoxious as all hell. Seth, on the other hand, is perfect. If Iris doesn't take his hand, I will.
Alright Iris...let's go.
When we last left our protag she was attacked in the park and unfortunately only had her phone stolen. She gets back home and what's the first thing on her mind? Calling Alden of course! Thus she calls Seth to once again request his number. *sigh*
Iris explains that she's calling from her home phone since hers was just stolen.
Why, yes Seth. I believe she is.
FOR ONCE WE ARE ON THE SAME PAGE.
Seth plants the idea in her head that the guy who texted her and the guy who stole her phone MIGHT be the same person.
Seth figures since she's calling him right now she hasn't told her mom yet. He also suggests that she call the police, but Iris rebukes the idea. Then she reveals the truth behind her DESPERATE need to call Seth.
Good God woman. You won't die if you don't get Alden's number.
Seth. Marry me. Nao.
Yeah. It was just her SECOND thought.
Imma smack you.
THANKFULLY, Seth reveal he no longer has his number as he just got it for Iris so why would he keep it.
Protag uses whine.
It has no effect on this wonderful man.
The you're a horrible, horrible human being and you deserve to be thrown in the nearest ditch full of demon squirrels.
Iris. Iris. STAHP.
Seth you're amazing. Just the way you are.
She laments and whines a little before suddenly somehow getting a great idea.
....kay Iris I'll give this one.
....no. Please don't tell me you're going to suddenly show up at the park.
THIS IS CALLED STALKING.
And here's our obsession crush of TWO YEARS.
They exchange pleasantries and what-not before Alden finally says:
I'm REALLY curious what you were expecting then.
You look really sorry.
Cause the game has to be longer...we don't confess. Guys I'm not gonna lie, this conversation kind of bored me. Alden is kind of...bleh right now.
she wants to see your naked self portraits
She compliments his pictures and his camera. She then states that he must really be into photography because...
when we're alone.
They walked around for a bit and for the third time we hear how Iris's phone got stolen.
No...he's just going to accept the fact the you KNEW he was here.
I decide to keep quiet, as I hate it when people try and talking to me when I'm reading/writing and such.
Iris gives that reason.
Alden's memory card is full and the pair beside to sit beneath a tree in the park for a little bit.
Kay. That gives you a few points in book. I'm a sucker for literate men. Both fictional and real.
That's nothing too new, honey.
Oh friends and hacking. Good times. Good. Times.
The first thing that popped into MY head while reading that?
Cause I stalk you. All the time.
She then gets really defensive and names off some basic stuff he likes that she found out like two minutes ago and starts getting really annoyed when:
Yep. She's really into knowing all about you Alden.
That was like....five minutes ago.
I would like to point out that during this scene sounds of seagulls and crashing waves could suddenly be heard. I...I thought we were at a park...
I don't think she has a cameraphobia.
Of course since Alden is her crush of TWO YEARS...she finally says yes as long as he doesn't look while he's taking the picture. Plus she likes the fact that he will have a picture of her..........yep.
HOW DARE YOU WANT MY PICTURE!
Iris freaks out a little bit, understandably.
.....seriously? A note from TWO YEARS ago?
WHAT FRIEND WAS THAT ALDEN?
....troublemaker? Now does that does that sound like anyone we know?
Okay that's...kind of sweet.
Classic popular boy is really a sensitive artistic soul.
Well you would not fit in on BF Iris. That much is for sure.
Then they part ways and we find...
Payback is a bitch.
I know what I to do. : )
douse him with fire water
How is this even a choice? Obviously we should drench him.
Speaking of which, Iris was a lot more awesome on Devlin route. Seth route makes her intolerable.
GO GO NINJA IRIS.
With an impromptu rain shower...
The argue for a while and Devlin basically keeps daring her to do it.
That sounds accurate.
Characteristic of an otome protag? Check.
My best friends call me much worse things than Fluffy...especially in public. I think you're okay Iris.
I: You've got to be kidding me.
D: What was the name of the dog in Lady and the Tramp?
D: No, the other one.
I: You're an idiot.
Way to change the subject.
Some more mockery ensues...and then:
They argue a little bit and Devlin points out that he would know Alden a little better than Iris, since they were friends for 5 years.
She realizes she's going too far and apologizes.
