"An opportunity, once lost, does not come around a second time." - Chinese proverb
Oh jeez. This was originally going to be a more ambitious project, using the Shadowrun content editor to create a mini campaign. In the end, I just ran out of time to figure out the technical details and just put the story into Twine and then skin it to look like the Shadowrun UI. That definitely made it easier. I spent soooo much time trying to find a good Chinese proverb for the tiltle.

I was originally working on this as a treat, but then it showed up on the pinch hit list. I figured that it made sense to pick it up. Life is Strange is one of those games that ate my life for a week. It does this amazing thing where it stretches out these moments, where it lets you linger in a feeling for as long as you'd like. Getting a chance to try to recapture that was a great palate cleanser after trying to do something more scripted and dialogue-heavy.( the other ficsCollapse )( oh, and a vid, tooCollapse )( superlativesCollapse )
