Reiko’s story will be in the eyes of Aarika Lorraine. You may wonder, what kind of name is Aarika for a male protagonist? Well that’s the point. Aarika is not a male, but a female. Some of you may already know that I was considering yuri. But now it’s finalized! I chose this simplybecause of the setting this VN is taking place in. It’s in my country and I know how people in this country react to homosexual behavior. We are quite ignorant, to say at the very least. The story will include politics, family drama, drugs, romance (obviously), and more. Your choices will affect how your relationship with Reiko will be handled. I want to include plenty of choices that will lead to multiple endings.
The two characters, Reiko and Aarika, have been developed to be much different than each other but not polar opposites. For now, I’ll let you know that both have one simple thing in common, and that’s a mild identity crisis. It’s common for freshmen in college to have this. I mean, they leave home for the first time ever and they’re often in a new society. This forces them into situations to try new things, whether they want to or not, and to choose what they would like to do for the rest of their lives. College is a very important time of many people’s lives as it throws out much of what is learned as a child to form a completely new person. Friends and teachers often have a major influence on the students.
I’ll be honest, writing can sometimes be a pain. You plan all your scenes and start writing only to imagine a different idea for one of those scenes. You later realize that new idea contradicts your plan for a later scene. You start redeveloping and have a completely new story-line by the end of the day. Yep. That’s writing for ya. Still, it’s worth it!
That’s all I got for you today, but I’ll let you know we are making more progress now than we’ve had for quite some time!
