Hello!
I'm a blind teenage girl. Most of my time here is spent reading stories or writing stupid things on the forums, but I sometimes write short stories and poems as well. English isn't my first language, so any feedback is welcome! Up for a duel anytime.
Feel free to visit My Mastodon profile.
Have a nice day, Mayana.

But ... there's no reasonable option here! CanI pick 4? I'm not yet sure what that would be, but I bet it'd be much better. 1 could work. But we are a butler, not a guard, so we have no business doing that. And Primrose'd no doubt call for the actual guards to stop us, since she'd want to question him. 2 is the best option for us not taking the blame. But is also a bit extreme, don't you think? Just quiet surprise would work better. Rory and Mopsie would think we're just shocked that Figs was found out, while everyone else would think we're shocked because we didn't know it was him. Then there's 3, which only a child would think would work. I suppose it could be a jester option, but I've a feeling Pennyworth's going to do it seriously. He's not smart. Besides, even if he does try to do it jokingly, I doubt Primrose would find it funny. Ugh. Fuck it, 3. At least that way we get some amusement out of it, if not the characters.

Option A. A and B both seem harmless enough. C is definitely a bad idea. Since Gower chose A, I'll put my vote in that as well, so it has a higher chance of winning.

2. Fuck it. We've already hinted at it, not subtly at all. He should have an idea of what happened, surely. And if not ... well, we're CYStians, not CoGites. We've avoided telling him how shitty his art is for long enough. If he posted it on the forum, he'd know that immediately. So, surely, even Pennyworth's niceness can only last so much longer.

c. Yeah, we're on a time limit. But it seems like we've just uncovered a goldmine of info. So let's try looking about some more first.

I can't actually see what Gower has posted. It shows up as an empty post, so I imagine it's on an image. Therefore, I should probably leave this to others. But still, here's my opinion, worth exactly as much as you paid for it.

Gower doesn't seem like the kind of person to make fun of someone for making mistakes. Hell, even when dealing with complete idiots like that wolf person that everyone else on here would've mocked, he remained polite. So I find it unlikely that he'd actually mock you, as you seem to think.

He is likely just providing constructive criticism. And that, in my opinion, is the best part of posting something online; being able to learn from others where you could still improve, to make sure the next story you write is even more enjoyable to read.

Besides, you already know that when you publish a story, others will be able to comment on it. How would Gower grading it be any different? If you don't want others to voice their opinions on something you write, don't make it publicly available. You read Turnip's article and agreed with it; what's the difference here?


IT DOES NOT WORK HELP PLZ on 10/12/2019 11:30:26 AM
There aren't that many conflicts between Slovenia and Croatia; Croatia and Serbia get along far worse. The vast majority of Slovenian tourists go to Croatia, so most of them at least like us for our money. Some of us can be idiots, of course, but stupid tourists are found everywhere.

Since I've been tagged, I guess I should try to help. But I'm not sure what the issue could be; you're likely using a computer, not a phone, and you don't seem like the type that would mess with developer settings or install NoScript. So uh, try clearing the cache?

Or just install Firefox. It's the better browser in my opinion anyway. And the play buttons definitely work there.

3. Yeah yeah, I want to hear this love story about as much as you do. But maybe, just maybe, he's lying and this's a code for something else, and we'll notice him trying to make something up.

Bad Seed (Collaborative CYOA) on 10/11/2019 3:55:22 AM
b. We just used up a lot of time sneaking around so we wouldn't be noticed. We sure as fuck don't want to get found right after that because someone heard us smashing things. Let's try to get as much information as we can, quietly.

Tally Ho, Chapter Four on 10/9/2019 2:25:10 PM
Both 1 and 2. Every bit of info could help.

Tally Ho, Chapter Four on 10/9/2019 10:12:14 AM
I'm not quite sure if we should mention 5 ... but fuck it. Let's just tell her everything. The more info we mention, the more it'll look like like we weren't almost useless in investigating.
