fucking firefox crashed and I lost what I wrote
Oh look, it's our friends. Everybody makes a note of how out of her way Ciel is going to be here and how she really shouldn't and she's gonna be totally late. She's a fast runner, she says. Shiki pretends to object to this whole business because he's contractually obligated to. I'm going to explain an important rule to you: the harem lead has to act like he totally doesn't enjoy any of this, despite the fact that the universe around him has been built to the exact specifications of his fantasies. When one of the girls lavishes attention upon him he has to stop and say "whoa there how very unusual, and dare I say I'm a little uncomfortable oh ho ho" but really everything is totally chill. It's a personality type!
So Ciel and Arihiko gossip about how moving must really have Shiki down and how, you know, dude flips out when he doesn't understand things. We squabble with Arihiko while Ciel watches maybe too intently? Weirdo. Then she says hey, that was your house on the news, right? We tell her yeah, the police came by. Hmm. Chick is nosy. When she leaves, Shiki and Arihiko ponder how nosy chick is, and how totally hot girls in glasses are (a sentiment shared by myself). "It was a short friendship," he tells us.
Choice! As interesting as this whole girl in glasses business is, we really need to get to the point already. Getting to the point means purposely ignoring Ciel! Isn't it sad? I stick around in the classroom while I bet Arihiko and Ciel are getting some quality time. Good on them. Nothing at all happens because Shiki doesn't even have anything to stare at. As though dude didn't have enough. Harem leads, like the player, also have a denied and barely suppressed thirst for more. Just sayin'.
"OH BY THE WAY I HAVE ANEMIA," Shiki tells us during fifth period. Since the stabbed-in-the-chest incident, of course. So he sees a crow again, and everything starts all goin' crazy. Screen starts flashing, and whatnot. Arihiko gets him out of school, and Shiki walks home. And finally, on the way home, something major happens. I'm sort of surprised it took me this long to get to the first major plot point, but hey, the game is wordy.
I guess I'm back at it again! I'll definitely be working faster on these over the break but it's still a pretty huge videogame to be playing for you. Anyway, this is going to start to get fun, so look forward to that.
