Dad

Natsuki by Natsuki1I’m not very good at ren’py. Actually, I know enough not to be dangerous – unlike She.who.must.not.be.named.

I had help, however, getting these clues. You see, it’s time to set the record straight about dad, sometimes called father.

Not called papa, not by me!

How some people can clasp misinformation close to their heart mystifies me. And they even elaborate on it./

Like, I even found one topic  commenting on my mother, can you believe that?

 mc "I just figured that since I'm the one helping, I would be going to your house..."
    n "Yeah, right."
    n 5x "Like I could have a guy over my house..."
    n "My dad would kill me."
    mc "Really?"
    mc "That's kinda strict, if you ask me."
    n 5r "Yeah, how do you think I feel?"
    n "I can't do anything when my dad is home..."
    n 2q "Anyway...I just needed to complain for a second."

I’m sure most parents are more than familiar with adolescent hyperbole. I plead guilty. And yeah, he’s strict.

n 1bm "Uu... I wish I could have one now!"
    mc "Well, there's no reason you can't, right?"
    mc "I don't see any harm in that."
    n 1bc "Well, yeah, but..."
    n "My dad's making dinner tonight, so I really need to save my appetite."

    n 4bs "Besides, when my dad cooks, I need to eat as much of it as I can..."

END

Make of that what you will.

    n "Like I could ever get my friends to read this..."
    n "They just think manga is for kids."

    n "I mean, I feel like I can't even keep it in my own room..."
    n "I don't even know what my dad would do if he found this."
    n "At least it's safe here in the clubroom."

Maybe dad thinks the same as my friends, reckon? Or he wonders how long he needs to support me before I become an adult. I’m in my senior year. (Pay no attention to Dumbo, “First year”? Meh. I’m height challenged.

So. That finishes Act One. Most people think it’s all normal. Full disclosure: there’s a semi-glitch in the first poem game, the music and silences, didn’t
you feel a little unsettled by my argument with Yuri? Whatevs.

  $ style.say_dialogue = style.edited
    n "My dad would beat the shit out of me if he found this."
    $ style.say_dialogue = style.normal
    $ _history_list[-1].what = "I don't even know what my dad would do if he found this."
    n "At least it's safe here in the clubroom."

What can I say about Act Two? Remember how suspicious I was of she.who~ turning up late to the club room? She ‘lost track of time’ using a keyboard all right. Only it was editing code with a computer keyboard. There’s the smoking gun above.

How devilish to give you glitch text in-game but write clean text in the history list.

And now, the pièce de résistance …

Isn’t that sweet? Only …

Who do we know that likes to  play with space on paper?

Now do you want to trash my dad some more – or apologize?
