You know, I am strongly considering letting this brew for a while, the whole suspense/mystery will get annoying if they dont tell what happened in goddamn convention.
Sorry for my bad english

Oh wow I'd never thought of that song applying to Effulgence before, but now I can't unsee it. There are certain parts that are really, really perfect. Thank you for your song-related insights.

Also, may I introduce you to the Songs For Characters thread? http://alicorn.elcenia.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=210 It is possibly my favorite thread on this forum and I am of the opinion that people should post in it more often.

It was Reset, which seems like an excellent use of the format.

I can try to give twine game recommendations tailored to more specific preferences, but I haven't actually played *that* many so it might just be easier to list my favorites:

Reset
Player 2
With Those We Love Alive
High End Customizable Sauna Experience
queer trans mentally ill power fantasy

also, howling dogs is supposed to be really good but i haven't actually gotten around to playing it yet

I bought the Princess Tutu DVD after seeing the first 26 episodes here: http://www.hulu.com/grid/princess-tutu? ... pe=episode This is the story I've been looking for all my life, ever since I watched the opening of the Lucasarts game LOOM: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... +lucasarts The game couldn't match the awesomeness of its opening sequence, and neither did Tchaikovsky's original ballet. I also thought the jewel shards were a great motif in Inuyasha, but the actual story was disappointing as a fairytale. Not Princess Tutu though. Thanks for not letting me be put off by the name.

I thought LOOM was great! What did its opening sequence make you hope for? I recently downloaded all of Princess Tutu, but I haven't managed to watch it yet. Maybe further rec will help!
