「D I O」 has Doki Doki Literature Club 27 Jan @ 9:20am
I typed in Dan Salvato for giggles, and I got 17th Jan, 2013. Seriously though, the reason why I used the date joined thing on that Yuri fan account is because I was on a phone and the month joined thingy didn’t show up on my phone lol.

Edit: 900 posts! Yeah!

You win the prize, transcript coming your way soon.

For a site that is not case sensitive. if you name search with upper case X, you get the right one. Monika did make the point she chose the account name herself. (DS prolly found this anomaly a long time ago: confusion to the masses. ahahaha!)

Okay, I’ve read it all, or at least, most of it.

Let me get this straight: Monika is a tentacle monster in space,namely Mars, that has been included in the SCP “creatures” and her objective is to get to “him” (James)

This community never ceases me to surprise me…
Nor does people’s creativity…

Oh well, each one to their own! Ahaha

Hey kwhero, how is your mod doing? I hope that it’s doing good

Anyway, I’ve found this http://steamcommunity.com/app/698780/discussions/0/1479857071257248246/ on Steam. Looks like a tool to make mods for DDLC. Maybe it could interest you?

Not the best. I know enough about the scripting and everything, but it’s the writing that gets me. I noticed once I finished that scene that my style is just blatently different to a Sayori feel. Like I said before, I’m not sure if I should continue like that if I can’t do her character justice.

I’m glad to see that you’re a fellow programmer! Ahaha

I’m sorry to hear that you can’t “connect” to Sayori’s feelings… But you shouldn’t surrender though. Try to finish the whole mod first and then play it. If you still think that it doesn’t do her justice or you’re not completely please then delete it BUT at least you won’t regret not doing it. Anyway, it’s up to you and I wish you the best of lucks!

Definitely don’t give up. Sayori arguably has the most complicated style/personality. (Just like how some of her words are the trickiest to figure out/most surprising in the poetry game.) It wouldn’t be right if you were able to whip up all of her dialogue right away. Really take your time matching her mannerisms with the main game. Also keep in mind the part where Monika explained Sayori doesn’t normally act the way we see her, it’s much different when the MC is around. She should have about 4 different styles or almost personalities you could say…
(towards the group, MC, herself, and Monika<—this is the main one that makes the mod different/really interesting).

Maybe going through all of her lines/scenes in the main game again and really putting yourself in her shoes/mindset will help. We're also here if you need tips/suggestions about a specific scene and/or testers.

Not so much a programmer. Just skilled enough at Ren'Py to do the basics and successfully copy/paste tricks Dan used into the right places. But I probably should keep working at it. Lemme know if you ever want to see what I have and I can post it wherever or email it to you.

Overthinking things is what I do. Probably should work on that. Like Monika said, if you hold your pen to the paper for too long, you'll just get a puddle of ink. I can just write it and worry about cleaning it up later.

Sounds like a good idea. I kind of read through it trying to see it from Sayori's point of view when I made the theory the first time, but I was mostly just skimming through for stuff to support my theory. It might be a good idea to get a bit more inside her head. Like I said to DG, just lemme know if you want to see what I have and I can post it somewhere or email it to you.

I think its a good theory.
Originally posted by Dearlaice Gortaigh:
Btw, I shouldn't really post it here… I should do a new thread but there are too many threads already…

Anyway, here it goes:

I've seen the piano theories that people have commented in the DDLC forum here in Steam.
If you haven't you should check them since they're actually pretty interesting and they're too long to resume here ( and I'm too lazy )

I've been thinking that it MIGHT , and I insist, MIGHT be a Monika's joke.

How so?

Well I think that she's not actually practising piano , but practising PHYTON .
This game was made with python right? Well, Monika is practising python so she won't mess up the game when editing the files and scripts
Also she says that she will show the player her "song" when she's ready, meaning that she will modify the game when she's more confident about it so she won't destroy anything accidentally.

The evolution of the "piano classes"

In the first act she practices for the second act and "messes up" Sayori to commit suicide. Maybe she just added the suicide in the script , forced her to do so or "augmented" her depression. Anyway, her objective was to get rid of Sayori but she saw that it was easier to delete her and start over:

Oh jeez…I didn't break anything, did I? Hold on a sec, I can probably fix this…I think…
Actually, you know what? This would probably be a lot easier if I just deleted her. She's the one who's making this so difficult. Ahaha! Well, here's goes nothing.

In the second act she glitches the game but manages to modify the girls up to a point. She can "control" Natsuki ( deleting her memory * Completely* and making her say things she doesn't want to) and also "messes up" Yuri's obsessive and unbalanced personality to
scare you off. Again, she maybe "increased" her obsession or modified her script. In the end, she saw that it was going to end like Sayori. So when she also commited suicide ( she knew she was going to do so *have a nice weekend*) , she decided to delete EVERYTHING because she was feeling more confident with her " piano" skills

In the third act she has total control of the game now . She can do whatever she wants (save/load control…) Eventhough, there are some parts of the game completely broken, such as the poem maker functionality

In the fourth and final act, although she is deleted and no longer in a character file, she still is in the game. She is in the python scripts and can still modify the game one last time to delete all of it and to stop the cycle because, apparently, the President of the Literature Club has the ability to know that they're just scripts and there's a whole world beyond their own limitations.

So, what do you think guys?
Interesting?
Stupid?
Should have I been sober while writing this?

Let me know what you think and thanks for reading this far!

@Mr.foster(S.A.S) I thiink that this all is linked to XXXXXX, Libitina who is now a 17 year old girl. All the character files once decrypted link in together and reinforce each other. They are pointing towards something extremely interesting, scary yet hopefully could mean that the 4 girls could be saved if they have third eye awareness. How do we help them get the feeling of deja vu and fore-warning?

If somebody already say it, well sorry for being late to the party, and good job for finding it out!

Also this image, maybe it was natsuki mother? Or it was somebody related to libitinia and/or the project it self?

I did four runs for the endings and thought I was done. Then when I was reading all this other stuff, I went exploring. I did get the Natsuki eyes glitch and obscure words. And playing with mods and ren'py, NEVER have I had that 25% chance of different disclaimer screen.

So, what are we thinking about Sayori's parents? Do they exist? Do they not? Or should I avoid talking about them at all like in the regular story? I vaguely remember talking about offscreen characters here before, but that got buried somewhere…

Hmm, I think the only parent mentioned is Natsuki's dad, so it would be pretty tricky to give Sayori or any other character parents. DS probably completely left them out to avoid unnecessary backstory and/or to just not overcomplicate the plot.

I would say to only add them if you need to build her character more, or want to add a unique side story/view into her life. The main problem is that there is almost nothing to go off of. You would basically have full control over what they are like which is risky/might bother people who had a different mental picture of what they would be like. I personally would make them the very nice/friendly/happy type, but always busy/out working.

If the 3 possibilities are ignore them, briefly mention/reference them, or deep descriptions/interactions with them, I would choose the second option. Pick the first if you're worried about messing them up or if you don't need them to add to the plot. Pick the third if you need more content and want to be extra creative. Otherwise, the second is a safe bet.

xae-chan has Doki Doki Literature Club 1 Feb @ 4:27pm
I believe comment #162 by da ninja started it. "There is an entire world going on in the back ground."

I'm in the opposite camp. There's a few stage props scattered around to give the illusion of a world. Take your pick. 🙂

There's a Heinlein short story, 'They' in which the main character is the real one and all the world is a facade to keep him confused into believing it is real.

I didn't check the discussion to see what developed.

On my very first run ( the one where the feelings are real) I got Yuri's eyes pop out of her face. I was super confused. I was like " hey, nice programming there mate" (sarcasm). I was so naive at that time… Ahaha

Also, I got Natsuki's "real" mouth during the quarrel with Yuri. Creepy

Like mystic_man95 has said, it's very risky to depict in depth her parents. In my opinion, you should totally avoid them. It's ok to make quick references to enrich the story but you must bear in mind that most of their world is false. Just an illusion to make us/them believe everything is real/normal. Take the students as an example. They're mentioned by the MC, they give us the feeling that everything's normal but then they're never mentioned again. Natsuki's dad follows the same path. Mentioned by Monika/Natsuki, we feel pity, end of story.

In case you want a more thorough point of view about their world, here you go!

I was thinking either a brief mention of them, maybe as an excuse to get them out of the way or an explicit realization that they don't exist as she comes to an empty home. The latter is more interesting but it can be assuming a bit too much. Either way is fine though.

Yeah, I was thinking just the same!

A mention to why her parents are not present could be an interesting addition to the story in order to create a nice mental picture . I suggest you doing this on the beginning though.
Just like when the MC mentions the students! Ahaha

Making Sayori question the existence of her parents, although it's a very nice idea and I really like it, it's a double-edged sword. You can easily mess up here! But if you do it nicely (which I'm sure you can do it) , it can really improve the story. You can use the theories here to help do so! Ahaha

EDIT: Making Sayori question if her parents had ever existed would probably trigger those who believe that DDLC's has a little world inside of it going on… But it's your mod! People already know that you're showing them your reality when they download it so they really shouldn't complain though! Ahaha

EDIT2: You only mustn't make it look too far-fetched.

Then her falling and getting caught refers to her becoming self-aware and finding out how everything is meaningless/fake and the code (wind) predetermines exactly what will happen. The actual Lady might just be a metaphor to strengthen the depressing theme of the poem.

Now that I think about it, Sayori is the next feather to fall, but for her Monika has kind of turned into The Lady for her at this point. I still don't believe that Monika would consider herself as knowing everything though. For instance, she didn't know everything when it came to altering the code.

Overall, it is kind of undefinitve/up for interpretation who/what the actual Lady is, and I'm not sure Monika would actually even say. The main importance for this scene is just getting the general theme/truth across to Sayori, and getting the her reaction right. It might be the most critical scene in the mod. This seems to be the moment where everything started to unravel for her (depression and knowing more than we thought wise).
I agree! I thought I was the only one who thought so!

I remember having in the beginning of act 2, a certain scene starts to be zoomed, the focus slightly falling to the right. And I had a poster of Sayori hanging behind her as she was speaking of poetry… Good times

Yup, the zooming effect is pretty rare ( the faint effect maybe? I don't recall the name) And the poster I think it was like about 33% or so. Quite common actually. Ahhh good times indeed! Ahaha

Welcome to Web 2.0, computer standards are good cuz there's so many of them …

I wrote it on Win7/Firefox and it was fine. I read your comment first up this a.m. on my linux/Firefox. Eureka, said I, he must be using Chrome (or whatever on a Mac?) And .yeah, that was ugly. All I had to do was center-align that cosplay photo to make Chrome happy and not affect Firefox.

WordDepress shares some of the blame. Their HTML is somewhat proprietary. And editing is a barrel of laughs. To start, you have a visual editor and a tab for HTML editing. But the visual editor has a generic serif font so what you see is an approximation of the final look.

When you think you're done, there's a Preview button and it again looks different but is not the final look. To get that, you HAVE to Publish the ♥♥♥♥ing page, warts and all, click the View Site button and see what the world sees.

I haven't checked the site with my S5, guess I'd best do that next.

I just joined the American Cryptogram Association (I think, waiting for Paypal confirmation).

Done. They are pencil and paper types so I will submit my text file, possibly with the backstory of the steganography first step. I wonder if they've heard of base 64?

If they can't come up with anything then we are in major trouble 😀

This is pretty much the last major mystery. It makes sense that Yuri would have the most complicated poem.

Hey guys, the other day an idea came to my mind

Well, it's not actually an idea, more like a realisation of something that I hadn't really given much attention until now. It's about Sayori's last poem( again yes).

Something that probably many of us (including me) overlooked or took for granted is how it got to school if Sayori was already dead.

In my opinion, this is what could have happened:

-Sayori wrote the poem before the weekend,namely on Friday, or on Saturday and submitted it to Monika. This is very unlikely(not to say impossible) becasue the poem had her handwritting so it couldn't had been submitted online.

-Sayori had already written the poem and handed it personally to Monika like the other girls did. I presume that the other girls actually handed their poems to Monika hand to hand since the MC recognised their handwrittings. Also, I suppose that the other girls submitted the same poems they had recited on Thursday. Still, I don't think this is possible since Sayori wasn't that bad at that time.

-Sayori wrote it before hanging herself as a way to struggle against the unavoidable and then Monika personally took it with her after the ordeal. This is very likely since Sayori's "Meadow" is not present among the other poems on the festival probably due to Monika's intervention. Which is troubling is why Monika did that.To end the Act1 already? Seems like the only feasible option.
Moreover, Monika herself told the MC that she was present during Sayori's death so… probably this is what happened.

Now that I think, didn't the MC submit a poem he found "online" ? After being through Sayori's confession and all of that, he just searched something "online" and submitted it afterwards to Monika rather than making something to support her or whatever… Another point that makes him even more unlikeable! Ahaha

Also, I feel like Sayori's job was more like a way to get her out of the way so Monika could actually do whatever she wanted to her. To let her be with her own thoughs and fight with her demons (because Monika knew she would actually lose of course) .

Why do I think so? Well, the girls (in both acts) tell Monika and the MC that her job is suitable for one. So another person isn't really needed. That applies for both the MC and Sayori. And such aggressive answers from the girls if the MC actually chooses Monika or decides to go with Sayori are a bit unsettling too… Those girls are really needy! (and uncompassionate)Ahaha

Well, enough "observations".

I hope that you've found this interesting and helpful! Thanks for reading! Ahaha

I was trying to think about when Sayori would write the poem and bring it to the school. The plan I had right now is that on Friday night, as the player turns off the game (a stopping spot that I've seen a lot of Youtubers use), Sayori experiences the void of meaningless noise and colors that Monika describes in Act 3. Barely hanging on to her sanity at this point, she wonders why Monika would expose her to such a horrific reality. Suddenly, she remembers. The moment that the truth of the world hit her, Monika said "What if I just… do this?" Sayori realizes that Monika isn't quite as helpless as she is. That Monika has some kind of control over the world and even over her. She wonders just how far Monika's power goes. So she could write the poem at that moment, trying to send Monika a message and deliver it by hand to the school in the middle of the night or try to learn a bit of piano herself and write it just before hanging herself and get it there by programming magic. Anyway, I don't think Monika was physically there. She's omniscient as far as I can tell, so watching Sayori from far away wouldn't be a problem, but I have no problem physically putting her there either. It would make a more dramatic scene, but I'm trying not to antagonize Monika too much. Anyway, not much of that is actually written, so sorry for my super slow pace. 😛

edit: Or antagonizing Monika a bit more might be a good idea. Because at the end,

Yeah, the timeline here is very tricky. I had only considered this for a normal game but I guess that this is actually a critical point in your mod!

Is the game really turned off on Friday? I mean, I know that Saturday literally never happens… I guess that you are referring to to that, right?

Anyway, the exposure to the "void" would pay a great toll on Sayori in every sense but it would also open her mind (even more) and realise that Monika has something to do with everything, even her own condition.

You're very right about that but, in my opinion, it feels like writing the final poem on Friday would feel off… Especially, after you friendzone Sayori, she tells you "I should write a poem about these feelings" hinting that she was going to write her final thoughts later on the same day or that she at least had already started writing them ( she blames herself for being weak and opening too much to the MC and she even makes some quick references to Monika).

Deliver a message to Monika? What message? And programming magic? Monika's well aware of what Sayori had done ( she mocks the player a lot with that) and she really wants the MC to see it with his very own eyes (maybe to keep the game going? to make us abandon all hope in Sayori?)

The options for your mod are unlimited! Though, in the normal game, I do believe that Sayori wrote it moments before her death. It just feels " appropriate" for the reasons I had explained in my previous comment.

And about Monika being present… Well, you're right that she would proably have no problems at all watching from afar BUT she does like to be "in the middle of the action". An example? Yuri's deja vus. Monika could perfectly had eavesdropped her without making the MC aware of her presence… YET she decided to slowly appear to scare the out of us and to show her power ( and to ensure that everything goes as planned too?).

Maybe this would also be the case? If you decide to make her appear… Man, it would be super dramatic! Ahaha.
Also, there is no need to make her look like the antagonist, you could make her look like the misunderstood "girl" she is! Ahaha

And don't worry about your pace. Remember, easy does it! In case you need any help or whatever, here we are to help you out! It's always a pleasure 🙂

EDIT: A very bad joke I've always wanted to crack (I'm so sorry)

Yikes! A lot to process here, but I will offer one point here: remember the gimmick new game, delete Monica, new game, Sayori appears, can't handle epiphany on her own …

That 'feature' was not in the original release! What is its purpose? I suspect it's to show that Sayori would never be as powerful as Monika. And 'The Monika' is the only one who can create and write files into the game. (And not with her piano.)

So just before her death then. It does feel right. I just mean she's telling Monika with the poem to get out of her head before she does something drastic. Or telling her to stop forcing agonizing thoughts about her guilt over loving MC, which might make more sense just because of those lines that seem like they were aimed at MC rather than at Monika. The poem could get to the school by piano or Monika physically taking it. I'm leaning towards her taking it though. Come to think of it, it did say in "A Joke" that she killed herself just in time before the universe collapsed. If Monika is in the room that day, she could say something along those lines to convince Sayori to do what she does. Which would explain the lines "before I listen to everything she said to me" and "before I show you how much I love you" by saving the MC with this.

I can probably add that scene if Monika's character file doesn't exist without any problems. Just need to redirect the original to a different part of the script and rewrite it from Sayori's point of view. I kind of used that scene as reference for her realization in ch3s, but had Monika there to keep her under control.

Get out of my head before I do what I know is best for you.
Get out of my head before I listen to everything she said to me.

Get out of my head before I finish writing this poem.

But a poem is never actually finished.

I was hoping for the complete handwriting image, I only have a piece, the end section/screenshot.

I've done six of the handwriting poems, painful as the win snip tool interacts with the screen, so scroll top, do a snip, close the snip scroll down, snip, rinse and repeat. But they look betterer on the website.

I really, really want to see your mod, no matter how long it takes. 🙂 ["super slow pace' … how long is a piece of string? 😛

DG, it seems that "Meadow" only existed as one instance of 'spoken words', when Sayori recited it to mc on way to empty classroom for supplies. And title reference in the presentation practice.

Mc fiinds a poem online that Monika would probably like, and sends her the link Friday night?

We know Sayori was helping Monika online,on Sunday, not a meetup, That's when she scanned her % poem and u/l. Monika would have been doing deskop publishing her booklet..Mc's visit before his meetup probably pushed Sayori over the edge. The "I know what's best for you" oblivious kid. Natsuki was right about him being a dead weight.

I spent 2-3 hours on that depression scene yesterday, condensing it for the website. More and more I think her motivation is more about him than Monika. In the beginning she fears he'd become a NEET. (And he admitted no motivation.) Sayori didn't want him to worry about her when he could go do important things.

And she did tell him, "Soon you won't need me any more."

kwhero, your "Because at the end" is simply brilliant.

That's right, Saturday is totally skipped over. It's not even mentioned so you have literally a whole day to do whatever you want! Ahaha

Yeah, the message is pretty straightforward but like xae-chan has said, Sayori's main motivation seems to be the MC, even if she does acknowledge that the world around her is fake and that Monika is controlling everything (even her) ,she wants to keep the MC safe and sound. So, like you've said, she pretty much kills herself to keep the game going and let the MC continue even if it's without her. There's another thing that makes me believe that Monika was present or that at least she intervened afterwards:

If we trust Monika (and sadly we must trust her on this one) Sayori hanged herself after jumping off the chair. She didn't break her neck and started to choke to death bla bla bla. I didnd't notice but her chair is actually standing up ( ok Sayori could have jumped without making it fall to the ground) BUT it's facing to her desk! Pretty hard to jump off a chair in that way… So, or Sayori jumped off another chair that is actually lying on the ground and we cannot see it (unlikely) or Sayori actually jumped off the chair that is now on her desk. The chair may had fallen or not to the ground , but it was totally not facing in that direction. The only explanation is that Monika placed the chair on its place again. Why?

That's actually a good question. There is not a good reason for her to do that. To keep Sayori's "good image" in front of us( to be less traumatic maybe)? To ensure that she wouldn't actually be able to survive even if she regretted afterwards (which is what happened)? You must admit that her chair is VERY suspicious…

EDIT: Jumping off her desk or her bed looks impossible to me

Yeah, "Meadow" only existed for a brief lapse of time which is the one that you have just commented but, I think that's the poem that Sayori actually wants to perform. She already knows how to perform it so it's a little bit dubious…

"Mc finds a poem online that Monika would probably like"

I totally forgot the part "that Monika would like". Another point that makes him Monika's puppet. She sure is having fun with him! Or should I say it? Ahaha

And your explanation makes sense. The MC pushed her over the edge without any doubt and started a chain reaction that couldn't be stopped.
