Well. Outside.

Hey, I should have played this sooner. It's really good. Naturalistic writing is tough to get right, it often feels fake or forced, but you nailed it.

thank you!! the truth is, though, it was all method acting! i let myself run out of food, bugged my friends over discord, had a meltdown in a park, and then transcribed the whole thing!

and then i renamed everyone, and also rewrote their dialogue, because it didn’t feel natural enough.

none of this is true, but i still appreciate the compliment!

I feel like I would have a meltdown in a park in the middle of the night and text my bf or a friend about some random bs till they find out I am not actually ok and home.
