>photography class is first class of the morning for the next day, you are hyped to see miss Caulfield again
>a bit scared because you didn't do her homework, might get a lecture from her
>strangely you don't mind a lecture from her
>miss Caulfield walks in. Your eyes beamed with enthusiasm
>she's dressed in her usual, sophisticated and 'artsy' attire, a beige skinny pants with a white t shirt, with some sort of abstract graphic, and a checkered shirt on the outside.
>your heart flutters
>"good morning class, I am sure all of you have done your photography assignment on the "shots of nature", can all of you pass your work in front?"
>everyone walks towards her desk, except you, you are sitting there in your desk, slightly nervous, but carefully watching miss Caulfield meticulously arranging the photos, putting them into some sort of folders
>everyone goes back to their seat
>miss Caulfield looks around her desk, and suddenly her eyes fixed towards you. Your stomach sank
>"Gramham, I don't see your work here, could you pass it in front?"
>miss Caulfield sighs and folds her arms
>"that is not cool, gramham. See me after class"
>".. Yes miss Caulfield"
>you feel like you died a little inside, as if you have let miss Caulfield down. Now she's bound to look at you as the problematic kid.
>class ends, and everyone packs to leave.
>"goodbye class, and gramham, don't you leave yet"
>you see her staring at you, not angrily, but annoyingly. It's quite obvious that she doesn't want to be in this situation, that she doesn't even want to talk to you at all
>you realize this, and your stomach sank again. Nevertheless, you stood up and walked towards her, your eyes fixated on a thousand angles but just not at her
>"so gramham, I assume you didn't do my homework?"
>"yes miss Caulfield.. "
>"well why not? Don't you have enough amount of time to do it?"
>miss Caulfield sighs
>"gramham, I will give you one more day to finish the assignment alright?"
>"well miss Caulfield.. Ermm.."
>you pull out the instant camera from your bag, its clearly damaged and non functioning.
>"it's just that.. My camera died on me a few days ago"
>"hey.. This camera.. Where did you got it?"
>"uhh.. My dad gave it to me a few weeks ago for photography class. I told him to get me a DSLR, but he said this will do"
>you expected miss Caulfield to be less empathic, but her eyes lighted up at the sight of the antique, and she politely took the camera, looking at it, like a child looking at a toy
>"well, your dad isn't wrong at all"
>miss Caulfield proceeds to tinker around with the camera, looking at it from all angles.
>finally, she seem to focus on a particular area of the camera, and nodded to herself knowingly, like as if she just found out the root of the problem
>"well gramham, if you don't mind, could you leave your camera with me? I should be able to fix it"
>"but, what about the home-"
>"don't worry about that, I will lend you one of my DSLR. In fact, let's go get it now shall we?"
>"okay, miss Caulfield"
>you watched her pack her stuff, and carefully sliding that antique instant camera into her bag. She seemed so delighted, so nostalgic. like a adult looking back into their toys they played as a kid
>"I used to have one of these. My girlfriend gave it to me a few years ago"
>"oh I see.."
>your mind goes crazy at the word girlfriend, everything that has held you all along seem to fall down right now. You can't even focus on anything, just looking around frantically. Nevertheless, you forced a weak smile, feigning interest.
>"what happened to it then, miss Caulfield?"
>"well.. That's a long story. Come on, let's go now."
>miss Caulfield strolls out of the class, in her usual, slow, gentle unwavering motions.
>you follow behind her, not knowing what will come next..
filename enough for ya?
>down the hallway, you follow her slowly behind, being sure to keep your profile as low as possible, staying a good distance away from her. You try not to make things awkward.
>some students greet her as she stroll down
>"good morning miss Caulfield"
>she would reply, her a gentle hand wave, albeit slightly shyly
>your whole mind was flooded with the thoughts of that blue hair girl
>you only remembered her as being really fierce. She seemed possessive of miss Caulfield. Was she nice to her? Did she mistreat her?
>and the distinct contrast in personality between her and miss Caulfield was rather staggering
>after all, how could miss Caulfield fall for a .. Rather unsophisticated punk rock girl? You have no idea why, and even started to question miss Caulfield's taste. Or maybe miss Caulfield just have a different side..
>you have no idea, but decided that you were in no position to know
>after walking for what seemed like ages, you arrived at the teachers' room
>"DEPARTMENT OF ARTS"
>it says, on the solid wooden door
>"let's go in", miss Caulfield chirped.
>you nodded and proceeded to follow her in
>you would had expected the room to be decorated with paintings and photos or wallpapers of abstract goodies but, nah, just a simple white wall with lots of cubicles. Just like how a normal office is. At least it is rather spacious, not shabby at all.
>Brandon, the teacher for music greeted miss Caulfield
>"so what do we got over here?"
>Brandon questioned, looking at you
>"oh nothing, just a student who needs help with homework"
>Brandon chuckled and nodded knowingly
>"i see I see.."
>you followed miss Caulfield to her desk, which isn't too far away from the door
>it's located near the window, so you know she gets a good scenic view
>just as you see the desk..
>it's decorated with perhaps dozens of pictures with miss Caulfield and the blue hair girl
>all of them different and distinct, you see one whereby they are hanging out in some sort of lighthouse
>one whereby they are little kids you suppose, whereby the blue hair girl still had her natural hair color,and longer hair.
>miss Caulfield had black hair in that one, and you realised how nerdy she looked when she was young. It warmed your heart knowing that she was just geeky, like you
>one of them posing rather nonchalantly in front of a old pickup truck, the background seems to be some sort of motel. Now what happened here..
>"alright gramham, just give me a few moments and I will get you a DSLR"
>you murmured out an okay, still taken aback by all these pictures. Man miss Caulfield and that blue hair girl must be pretty tight. Shit, are they married?!
>miss Caulfield proceeds to bend down to reach a dry box, shit.. She's wearing green today. You proceeded to look away.
>she fumbled around for a while, and pulled out a black camera.
>"alright here it is"
>she proceeded to hand you the camera, and as soon as you take it, you realised its not exactly cheap, judging by the red ring on the camera lens
>"try not to damage this one, okay"
>"no worries miss Caulfield"
>miss Caulfield let out an assuring smile
>"since you might need some time to familiarise yourself with the camera, I will extend your deadline, to next week. Is that alright?"
>you nodded and said
>"no problems miss Caulfield"
>"okay, please don't be late again"
>she proceeded to take her seat, taking out all the folders from the previous class and going through them
>at the same time, pouring hot water out of a flask into a cup, and putting a satchel into it.
>for that brief moment, she seemed caught up in her own world, blissfully unaware of you. You realised you weren't getting the attention you crave for, and that made you feel awkward.
>"Well if you excuse me now miss Caulfield.."
>"sure!" She chirped
>you gave a last, weak smile, as you proceeded to walk out of the teachers room, holding the camera in your hand, carefully. You could feel Brandon giving you a look.
>as you closed the door behind you, you gave a heavy sigh
>obviously you had wished for more, but you had no idea what you wanted in mind
>it was quite clear miss Caulfield didn't really think much about you
>you walked heavy steps to your next class, at the same time checking your timetable on your phone on when's the next photography class.
>next class is Friday, and its only Tuesday today.
>you could already feel the drag, before you get to see miss Caulfield again
>nevertheless, you felt determined to take a good shot. Maybe if you do well, she will think highly of you!
Ayyy new thread, perfect timing.
Would anyone be interested in a fanfic regarding the origin of Chloe and Rachel's relationship? It would be pretty long, a few chapters long. It would look at the early stages of Chloe's teen life, being kicked out of Blackwell, planning to runaway, Joyce and David getting married and meeting Rachel. It would show how Rachel and Chloe started to bond over issues from their past, giving a little peak into Rachels life and just overall how there relationship begun and grew. It would show similarities between Max and Rachel and maybe show why Chloe has a thing for their type. It would show Chloe's dialogue and her actions over a long period of time morphing from person to another, showing how she changed from an angry teen to a rebellious troublemaker with the help of Rachel. It would also cover how Chloe deals with certain situations that happen (argument with a friend) and how Rachel would deal with the same situation, only a lot more intense, with Chloe taking note and slowly over the course of the story shaping her into the Chloe we know, love and meet in Life is Strange.
It would be written as it's own story (you wouldn't need to play Life is Strange to understand the characters) there'll be explanations and character introductions, twists and turns, contained within the time frame of William dying and LIS starting. I would try to keep it as unpredictable as possible, considering we know what will actually happen with these characters down the line.
So would anyone be interested in reading something like that?
Man my English is shit. My vocabulary is shit as well.
I really wanna turn this into a spin off whereby this depressed boy goes to school with Max as his teacher, and somehow he has special abilities and stuff too but, for now it's fun to cuck him.
>a fic about Max's replacement (Rach) and her insecurities about her relationship with Chloe (even tho she loves her)
>a fic about Rachel's banging with Jefferson,Frank maybe Nathan and some other dickheads
It could work if Dontnod confirmed Rachel has some superpowers like Max (Rachael's revenge!) In Episode 5 she became some ordinary girl, who's usin' people tho.
>karl pilkington replaces max caulfield
is the story better or worse?
i can't be doing with you, sunshine
i'm not 'avin a go righ' but that mark jefferson fella, he's a bit weird innit
>probably thinking that ''The Butterfly Effect written and directed by Michel Koch (aka Imagination Lord) ''
Can't wait for genesiswings next render. :^))))))
oh shit.. that scene
>Cue_E5_7A_CliffFuture_ChoiceSaveChloe_Chloe_030="Max… I'll always be with you."
>Cue_E5_7A_CliffFuture_ChoiceSaveTownKissChloe_Max_050="Chloe... I love you." >Cue_E5_7A_CliffFuture_ChoiceSaveTownKissChloe_Chloe_060="You better. And, I’ll always love you. Now, get out of here, please! Do it before I freak. And, Max Caulfield? Don’t you ever forget about me..."
>tfw nobody will never say to you ''I'll always love you''
>tfw nobody will make a joke for you to make you feel better even that person knows that she's in a bad situation. ''Crank it up to 11''
>tfw you'll never have a gf like Max who'd sacrifice town for you
>tfw nobody will willingly sacrifice herself for you and for other people (like Chloe)
>tfw nobody will sacrifice town for you and let go all town (like Max)
>tfw nobody will love you as much as Max loves Chloe
>tfw nobody will never give you that smile, like Max gave to Chloe
why fucking live huh? WHY FUCKING LIVE??
You'll find your Max one day, anon!
>Alice loves Lisa
Yeah she loves Lisa
That seems like a dream come true.
So what music do you have that makes you feel Arcadian, LiS general?
This general is dead as fuck. Did you guys all just kill yourselves?
At least I have some free time now, so I can finish the game and actually join this depressed suicide watch support group.
When's the LE due again, the commentary and the art book will liven things up a bit.
Sup 4cheng, russian 2cher here. We are in our thread find some questions, answer on which us-anon can give.
What u zink about integrity of Maxine's hymen? Does she still a girl on the moment of the game starting? Or some hot macho in Seattle banged her?
What is the structure of Blackwell academy. Is it some kind of high school and Max after one last year should go to college/university? Or it is allready higher education?
Sorre for bad engles and ty for ur attencion.
>What u zink about integrity of Maxine's hymen?
Pure and untouched, awaiting Chloe's gentle pegging.
>Is it some kind of high school
It's a private high school.
>Max after one last year should go to ?
Yes. Once she's finished with her senior year at Blackwell she'll go to a community college or a university.
>Or it is already higher education?
No, but there is one class, English AP where she can get college credit.
>Future Max warns Chloe
>Disappears on her instant return to tomorrow
>Chloe explains the situation to the Max that remains
>Max knows what this means
>"Chloe, how much did she tell you? About the photos?"
>"It's okay. you told me what you did"
>not only does Chloe know about the photos, and her attempt to save William, but now Max knows there's another version of her calling the shots on this timeline
>No time to dwell on that though, too much going on
>They warn David, and wait out the night at Chloe's
>finally enough time for Max to really start thinking things through
>What happens to her when the other Max returns?
>Chloe doesn't quite get this particular drama
>She jokes that she should make a move on Max if she's going to forget it all anyway
>it gets later, and they're both too worried about Jefferson, Victoria, and the storm to sleep
>"I like your idea Chloe. If I'm going to disappear soon...probably tomorrow...I want something that I know was real. Something I had that...that she didn't."
>"Max. It's not like I haven't already dared you. Both of you? To kiss me"
>"That's why I need more than a kiss. Like I said, I want something I know I got to do first. You don't have to tell her. Me. What we did"
Anon is lying.
>Does she still a girl on the moment of the game starting? Or some hot macho in Seattle banged her?
Max has never been with anyone. Chloe is her first kiss and she's going to lose her virginity with Chloe.
Idk if you're kidding, RUanon.
What this anon said >>127889234 Chloe's gentle pegging,
fingering, eating, and scissoring. lelYou don't need to be with a guy to lose your virginity with someone.
Victoria obviously. Literal slut in the game.
I wouldn't want Max to give me a footjob. She's not very sexually attractive. She probably smells like a sweater.
>tfw joyce will never give you a footjob
>Having a pretty good day
>Kids Will Be Skeletons starts playing
Yes. I've only found two of Chloe though. The vast majority of their LiS ones are Max + Kate.
I welcome any fics that try to explain things not expounded upon in game. Or any fics in general. Even if I don't like their content, it brings more attention to the game and could increase the community.
I've seen a few people do stuff about Rachel and Chloe, but I think they're all been abandoned. Although the general tone seemed to be: Chloe was in love with Rachel, Rachel loved Chloe (But was not in love with her), but they would fuck when high, and then Chloe would try to make things more, where as Rachel just wanted to be friends and was with Frank.
Rachel was both one of Chloe's few sources of joy, but also a large source of her stress.
Continue. Maybe put it in a pastebin or something so you don't have to put up a chain of posts every thread. And then people can read and help with mistakes/ wording.
I did the first post as a joke because someone said they wanted to play S2 as a student attracted to their teacher, Max. I fit in a joke about it being Warren's kid in the end (In my mind it was his daughter), but now I see potential for it to be an actual story that could go places. So good job!
As long as it doesn't end with Max cheating on Chloe
It's Rachel. Who else would want to save Chloe, knew about Max, and really wouldn't care if Arcadia Bay got destroyed?
The whole thing was a way to get revenge and also save someone she cared about.
“That's why I need more than a kiss. Like I said, I want something I know I got to do first. You don't have to tell me...her... what we did.”
“Max what are you -”
Chloe's squeaked into surprised silence as Max wrapped her hands around her waist.
“H-hey Max, I-”
Again, her voice cut off in stunned surprise as Max's questing fingers slipped up under her top.
“Max, we -”
Max leaned up and kissed her. Chloe's eyes went wide and she pulled back.
“Max, jesus, let me speak!”
Max froze in place, her hands going motionless beneath Chloe's vest. Sudden worry was painted on her face, as though she'd done something wrong.
“Look, Max, I... I really like you. I.. I.... love you. But is this really you right now.”
“Of course it is Chloe, what do you-”
“Max, I've been hurt before you know. Me and Rachel we- we fucked around once or twice, you know? I thought.. I thought it was a lot more than it was. Rachel was just experimenting, and... I don't want this to just be something with you to never happen again. When Max the Time Lord comes back, where are you gonna go? Are you gonna take this with you? I cant fucking handle that, not again, I-”
Max silenced Chloe with another kiss.
“Chloe you dork, I don't know what's going on. I don't. I don't know who I'll be when she comes back, and I don't know what she's planning. But I know that we've had a crush on you our whole lives. Maybe we didn't recognise it back then, maybe we suppressed it in Seattle, maybe it's taken us this long to actually do something. But if I'm going to be gone in the morning, I'm taking our first night with me. I love you, Chloe, and I have forever. Might take take SuperMax a bit longer to work out, but that's her stupid mistake.”
She actually blushed. Max hadn't seen that in years – even when they were kids, Chloe had always been so sure, so unashamed.
“Miss Price, how strange, you're so gungho go-get-em. Whatever happened?”
“Fuck you Max, goddamn retro junkie hipster nerd...” Chloe was flailing for another mock-insult to try and save face with when Max gently dug her nails into her back.
Chloe gasped, suddenly short of breath.
"Now there's a new face, Chloe. Not seen that before."
"M-Max what's gotten into you, you're not-"
"Not like this? Time travel is 'her' power, maybe this is mine."
Chloe blushed harder, the red contrasting with the cool blue hair framing her face.
"I kinda like you like this, Max."
put it somewhere we can follow it without constantly checking the thread
like fanfiction net maybe?
it would really suck to loose some of it becouse the thread died
Yeah would be nice to introduce a character and make Max the side character. If I were to write this, things would get sinister, I want it to be dark somehow.
But for now cucking him is fun
Seems like I don't see people comparing the ending of this game that much to the ending of The Last of Us, even though it seems obvious that it must have been influenced by that, as well as Fallout 4 was.
I've seen so many people complain about the ending being generic and cliche and whatever, and it's true that it is derivative, the butterfly effect thing we've all seen plenty of times before, but I actually can't really think of anything else that came before it that used the trolley problem aside from TLoU. Just wondering how much the fact that it was already done recently in a major game affected people's reactions to it.
You could turn Warren into a villain and then his son being the main character has the dilemma of either helping his father or trying to stop him.
Or you could introduce someone trying to copycat Jefferson.
Got it. Neither am I really. I'm sure you'll think of something, even if it's just keeping things in a mostly happy manner without going full darkness.
I really should type out a story at some point. I have a few posts that I made, and screencapped, that I thought could be turned into more.
I honestly hadn't even though of Last of Us. I was too busy making the more obvious comparison to Steins;Gate I guess.
The end of Last of Us was an even stupider sacrifice than Life is Strange episode 5 though. and they didn't even give you any choice in the decision.
People compared it to the ending of TLoU plenty, maybe you missed the discussion.
My problem with the whole trolley problem discussion is the point of the trolley problem isn't about the morality of pulling or not pulling the lever, it's about an individual's consistent morality. It's 'if you agree to pull the lever and sacrifice the one for the many, would you do the same if you had to physically push a human off a bridge above the tracks to stop the train'. It's designed to point out the inconsistencies of subjects refusing to push the man but agreeing to pull the lever.
In LiS, Max's choice is the 'lever' - it's Nathan who does the dirty work. So what would happen if Max had to physically shoot Chloe instead? If we were subsequently forced to make that choice, then you would have the true trolley problem.
But none of this makes for satisfying narrative in a story that doesn't sell itself as a philosophical experiment.
Gosh its not easy trying to write something. How does the lead character look like.. Is he skinny? Or fat? And most importantly, I have to imbue a personality into this guy?!
Now, Max. How does teacher Max looks like, does she wear glasses after staring at the computer screen for too long? How does her hair look like now, is it shoulder length, or longer?
And Chloe, holy shit. Does she keep her punk outlook or does she 'grow out of it'? I would say most people do grow out of it eventually but, I don't know.
I uh... kinda find Chloe much easier to write than Max honestly.
I like Max, but I dont really 'identify' with her well, cant get in her head.
Chloe, I really easily can.
That's up to you how you make him look. Depending on who you think his mother is, you could mix her and Warren's features.
I think Chloe would keep her hair about the same length. And probably the same blue (Or another color), I could not see her going back to being blonde. It would remind her of being younger and would remind Max of the Paralyzed Chloe. Her clothes would probably be a little more professional depending on her job (She still has the leather jacket for her bike). I think she would drop the loose tanktops. She still keeps her bullet necklace, but maybe added a blue feather onto it.
As for Max. I've only seen one person try to draw her grown up (http://lifeisfineandnothinghurts.tumblr.com/post/133848430571/im-being-slow-on-my-comics-right-now-so-until) but she looks more like she'd be in Africa photographing lions.
I like Gaberoid's idea for Max. Same hair color but in a pixie cut. She'd probably dresses in typical teacher clothes when at work: Either slacks (sometimes a skirt and maybe tights) and a blazer. I think maroon would be a good color for her jacket.
I really wish I could draw, because I want to try to actually make this visible.
I'm mostly interested in what conversation Chloe and Max had that night, and what temporary-Max's thoughts are on the whole thing.
Honestly, half the reason I made it go directly to sex is because I figured that's the only thing that would catch anyone's attention here.
So yeah. I got bored, and tried to put my ideas into an image. Purely for fun. Nothing too crazy.
I really need to reinstall gimp, MS paint is horrible.
Don't worry. I will.
We all will eventually.
Thanks. I was actually thinking a little bit of Victoria when picking Max's stuff, since Max likes her sense of style.
Although I just noticed I made a typo and it says "Bulelt".
I'm never leaving, KillYoSelfAnon. :)
Can we just agree with ''BOTH ENDINGS'RE SHIT'' ?
Eh, I know the feeling. Sorry man, it'll come
My last ban here was because of a Dana and Kate story.
It was late night and the newest vortex club part was a true success. No drugs were involved as Nathan had been arrested for his previous drugging of Kate and the discovery of Rachel Ambers body, leaving Kate relieved when Dana promised her everything was going to be fine. What Dana didn't know, however, was that Kate was a lightweight. Only a few cups of different types of drinks had gotten her head over heels so Dana decided it was best to take her back to her dorm.
With her car pulling up outside of Blackwell, Dana looked over to Kate. She had been knocked out the entire journey and waking her up seemed like a bad idea. Getting out of the car and taking herself over to Kate's passenger side, Dana opened the door and lifted her out, carrying her in a position which she would soon regret. Kate was slung over her shoulder, her ass in Dana's face. Once she had locked her car, Dana started to walk her way through the academy grounds towards the girls dorm, it was already past curfew and being caught would not look good for either of them.
Dana held her breath, being cautious about her steps so she wouldn't make a sound. The security guard was passing by, which caused Dana to take refuge with Kate behind a wall. The guard was almost gone until a light pitched squeak was heard, clearly coming from Kate's ass. Dana's eyes widened. She didn't know this could come from Kate, of all people. She wasn't too worried about the guard hearing the gas leak, until it formed into a blast which rumpled in Dana's ears. The smell was horrible, but Dana couldn't cover her nose otherwise she'd drop Kate.
"Hello?" The security guard was shining the flashlight towards them. "Who's there?"
Shit. He had heard it.
Last one I got.
And aww, that last one ;__;
Well shit that's something at least!
Past that, I dont know if there are any e-blockers or anything you could get, but if you try and find the guide for GPs they put out... last year, I think, Im pretty sure there's something in there about what is effectively palliative blocker treatments whilst waiting for a proper diagnosis. I'm on some meds that block oestrogen because of my own medical issues, but its fuck expensive so Im not sure the NHS would be happy giving it to you without the official diagnosis, but it might be worth a try
I actually don't know, it's 10 minutes from a train station if that helps
I can give it a go in trying to get some, but they're pretty shit at helping you out. I was surprised when they willingly gave me AD's without a psychiatrist seeing me first
It could be. I wouldn't mind paying for it privately, but the only doctor I know of that does that is in London and he only treats people over 21.
Just some gender shit I have to deal with
Hang on in there man, the waiting will be tough but it'll be worth it in the end
Yeah, it's DEFINITELY worth a try. There have to be some oestrogen blockers other than the one Im on, cos this one is like high end bullshit heavy duty kind. I dont know if there's any lower tier ones, my doctors certainly never fucking mentioned it. But this one is like £1200 a year, it's insane. Works though. Havent had a period in a year and a bit, shits weird.
Im pretty sure the latest things for GPs had details about how they should be doing their damndest to help deal with the mental issues of the before time, so try search around for those guildelines and give them a read.
Also, I assume you mean Curtis as the one in London? There's a woman in Edinburgh I believe too, and I know she must see people under 21, since my friend went to her and is only 19.
Honestly couldnt tell you, I'm actually an outsider on this shit, I know via a couple of friends
and my exgfbut it's all second hand.
I'll poke my friend on skype, see if she can get back to me in short order.
I seem to remember her not being that bad though, iirc my friend said she was about the same / slightly less than Curtis.
And yeah, the whole thing seems chronically underfunded, huh.
>reminder that Michel is a serious artist and every time you use his photo to make a meme he goes home and has a little cry
Michel is bastard and fucking shit at his job. When are we going to lynch him?
Warren has some strength hidden that comes out when he's angry.
Chloe definitely has more experience fighting and maybe learned some stuff from Frank.
Brooke wouldn't feel jealous of Max once Max said she didn't have feelings for Warren.
Max would at the least try to break up the fight or step in on Chloe's side if somehow Warren gained the upperhand.
Fight ends fairly quickly. Warren throw a punch, misses, Chloe kicks him in the dick.
Hey, she got back to me, here you go
http://your-gp.com/services/sexual-health-gender-clinic/gender-dysphoria/ Friend says "Highly reccomend her, she was really nice, and wait time for an appointment was like two months when I saw her and it wouldve been less but she was on holiday for one of those months.
So yeah. Better than a year for NHS help, that's for sure.
Hey, no problem, I hope she's a good fit.
I hope you get shit sorted before these threads die man, im rooting for you.
Edinburgh is sadly a lifetime away for me to get to (and I'm shit at navigating trains) so I'll probably have to hold out for a year or perhaps get curtis to make an exception. Thank you so much for the help though
Fighting Max would be like fighting Dio.
You think you're about to land a hit, then suddenly time freezes and they appear behind you. Expect instead of steamrollers, Max will summon a tornado that drops a boat on you.
Yeah, my friend was going from Birmingham to the 'burgh. Trains arent so bad, since Edinburgh is pretty central for bonnie Scotland, but yeah.
Whatever you go with, 100% best of luck to you
>Japanese dub comes out
>Game becomes a smash hit in Japan
>New golden age of LiS fan art and
>Max and Chloe become virtual Louis Vuitton models ala Lightning
Or at least have one of the characters in FF15 say "What a sweet screen, I'd love to play Life is Strange on it. I don't care what anybody says, that's one of the best adventure games ever made"
>Max and Chloe become virtual Louis Vuitton models ala Lightning
I could see her working as a tandem character with Chloe. Like, you control Chloe, punches, kicks and her guns, but one of her free abilities is to build up support from Max, where she skips back and tells Chloe what to do. You could use these to either minimise incoming damage as you get hit, or maximise damage output for an attack.
Have you anons already ordered your copies of Limited Edition? Remember that if you don't give your bucks to Michel there will never be LiS 2. Is that what you want? Now, go to SE's website and put in the order.
My problem with LIS in Dissidia is that it'd open the floodgates. If LIS got in, you'd have Kingdom Hearts tumblrinas demanding Sora or Riku, you'd have DQ fans wanting their characters in, you'd have Nier, Grandia, Full Metal Alchemist or whatever else's fans demanding their character make it in too because how dare Life Is Strange get priority over them.
Now some of those games, I'll admit, would be awesome in Dissidia, but I'd much prefer Dissidia was kept as a mainline FF thing.
Have you memes already ordered your copies of Limited Memes? Remember that if you don't give your meme bucks to Meme Master there will never be MeMe 2. Is that what you want? Now, go to ME's website and put in the meme.
Chloe fights by herself.
She build ups and unleashes Max. Who can freeze time, while holding Chloe's hand so the two of them can move. Then Chloe gets a few seconds to beat the shit out of who she's fighting.
Or if you take a lot of damage you can have Max rewind, you regain the health lost during that time, and you know how to counter what originally hurt you.
Her victory pose involves cheering while Max takes a picture of her celebrating.
Her defeat pose is collapsing onto her knees and crying, with Max comforting her.
What do you guys think the Imagination Lord will have to say in the director's commentary?
Even though it's the first new content in months (and for the foreseeable future) I'm really not looking forward to hearing about the Director's Commentary. After all those post-game interviews I'm certain the commentary is just going to piss me off.
How much would it cost to "hire" Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch for two days in order to have them record a commentary track over a play through of the game?
Cause, uhh, I'd be willing to contribute towards a fund to get this done. :3
Or get them to record some line as Max & Chloe to use in a fan made scene/ level.
Hannah would probably do it in a heartbeat, Ashly would depend on her schedule. As long as you paid them, and there wasn't some contract element preventing them, I think they do it.
Forget Dontnod, we'll make our own Polarized. With Blackjack, and Hookers.
>Hannah will never get to voice Max again
I hope she gets some work in the future. She did a great job in LiS.
>and there wasn't some contract element preventing them
I'm not sure they can do paid voice work as the characters owned by SE/DONTNOD without their permission.
Plus they both probably feel quite loyal to dontnod, so if the fan project was about 'fixing' the ending they might feel a bit offput.
I know Ellen Mclain did the voice for that Portal fan level for the guy proposing to his girlfriend, but that's sort of a sweet little personal project.
She's going to be in some short film this year about a virus and the apocalypse. Oddly enough her character's name is Max.
I think she has a good future ahead though. LiS no doubt got her exposure and she said it really helped with her shyness and confidence issues. Although she hasn't played the game yet and doesn't know if she will.
Hannah would probably never do it, but I think it would be funny as fuck if they both got a bit drunk and read through some of the fan fics. Many lols would be had.
>I'd be okay with Hannah and Warren, Kate, or Victoria's VA.
I thought about the same, but I don't know enough about those VAs. I'd argue that it wouldn't be worth having Kate's VA on, she literally knows nothing about the game outside of the lines she recorded. Listen to the Blackwell podcast episode she was interviewed on. She didn't know there was a storm in the game until she recorded some of Alyssa's lines for Ep5.
In terms of getting a better idea of the game itself, I'd say that Hannah, Ashly; Nathan, Madsen and Jefferson's VAs, and maybe Frank's too would be the most important ones. Hannah accidentally said a bit more about Jefferson's background in her Blackwell podcast interview than is made clear in the game, so I imagine the various VAs still have a fair bit of background knowledge about their characters to make it interesting.
Cristina Vee did voice over a fan comic of her character from Blazblue, so I guess it isn't impossible to get one of the cast to record something unofficial.
The fic would have to be pre-vetted. And I wasn't thinking of it as "reading through good fics" so much as "making fun of all the shit in the fan fics". Less a serious narration, more of a "then Max says ... WHAT?!" :P
>I know Ellen Mclain did the voice for that Portal fan level for the guy proposing to his girlfriend, but that's sort of a sweet little personal project.
Holy shit, that's awesome.
I'm not a religious man, but I'd attend that.
Yeah. I doubt much would phase Ashly, she does a lot of stupid/ dark stuff for her own channel. Which reminds me of these videos:
I find it funnier that she's gone on the record as saying violent video games contributes to the whole gender inequality thing, and then goes on to voice a character for Mortal Kombat X.
Let's get things back on topic. Cuteposting!
>thinking threads actually work like that
You know what kills the thread? When discussion stops. You know what's not an example of starting a new discussion or continuing an existing one? Posting simply to complain about previous discussions.
Oh ho ho.
Have a Kate.
It honestly boils down to hypocrisy. Some groups you can make fun of. Others will get you in deep shit. And if you're a part of a minority, you have exclusive rights to make fun of that group.
Fuck that. Anything and anybody is fair game in comedy.
Don't even try to appease/ apologize to SJWs because you will never do enough to gain their favor. Honestly, unless you really did make a mistake or genuinely regret something, don't apologize to anyone.
Yep. It's just a shame, because it basically ruins their series for me. I generally like Ashly Burch, and I don't really care too much about all the crap everyone talks about Anthony's private life. But I'm not much for "lel so random" comedy, so their show is already somewhat borderline for me (as are other similar "internet humour" shows they're involved with, like Rocket Jump). So seeing the random "SJW CONTENT OOPS" annotations on some of the videos just make me roll my eyes and switch off. From the sounds of it, I'm not alone.
Ash, pls, come do commentary on Life is Strange. We promise we won't hold any JOKES against you as if you're some horrible person. Pls.
Idk if Ashly has played the game yet. I remember reading some interview with her about some points in the game, but the the interviewer was asking garbage questions. And Ashly was just giving vague answers that resulted in some going "OMG Chloe is Trans/ Genderfluid so progressive and ground-breaking!"
I don't get why some haven't played the game yet though. I mean Hannah said she was nervous she didn't do good enough, but if I worked on something I would want to see the results ASAP so I would know if I should be celebrating or beating myself for fucking up.
I guess games and TV shows don't have big premier nights like movies where everyone has to sit through the final product. You seem to get a lot of people who don't sit through their own work outside of movies.
I was just about to save and post that.
Get out of my head!
Yeah, it'd be interesting to know if Ash has played it or not. She's by far the biggest gamer of the lot (from what I know of the other main VAs), so, probably? Maybe?
It sounds like Hannah has seen bits and pieces, though she does seem genuinely anxious about listening to her own performance. But to be fair, the response of the game has been overwhelmingly positive, so I think she can be safe in thinking she did a reasonable job even without playing it. It might have even helped - her view of Max got to stay pretty consistent throughout the process, it wasn't ... tainted (?) by seeing in-game Max as a complete product. In the Blackwell podcast, after one of the interviewers mentioned that a lot of lines had been cut here and there, she replied with "oh, that makes sense". So it seems like she already knew there was some discordance.
She looks like she's crying. That's not very nice. We need some more happy Vicky.
Something photography related maybe. Or perhaps a bag of chocolate cookies.
Maybe Kate would knit Victoria a nice cosy sweater. Or give the birthday girl her very own pet bunny.
Max get her those Coconut bite things that Victoria took. Since she obviously liked them enough to break into Max's room. And maybe also a frame print of one of a photo is there was a specific one Victoria liked.
Kate could get her a scarf or bag.
Maybe even Chloe would get her a gift. Even if it's an inappropriate card with a giftcard inside.
Welcome to the club.
Maybe if the budget wasn't (allegedly) exhausted they would have given us an interactive epilogue where we could do that.
To quell the idiocy that would be them leaving without looking for anyone, I choose to believe they left a day after the storm. And that's why there's nobody outside and the roads are mostly clear.
It was all a part of Max's nightmare. When she wakes up she will be with Chloe on top of the cliff, and Chloe will be ecstatic because the storm dissipated before hitting land. Then they will drive into intact town and celebrate with their friends and family.
Max finishes school at Blackwell (With a sub teacher) and then her and Chloe go to Seattle. The End.
They sought shelter because there was a regular storm, and nearly everyone had basements. Then when they heard the thunder stop, they go outside and see a beautiful sunset. And there was no more odd weather or dead animals.
Because we're capable of thinking and do not just blindly accept things based on incredibly flawed "logic" that contradicts other things in the game. We also paid attention to sideplots which were dropped with no resolution.
Everyone else will just watch without soaking anything in and then claim the ending was deep and well-written because it made them cry.
Depends on the person. I don't like watching or listening to things I've been in but I do like watching things that I've edited. I can understand Hannah's reluctance to play the game, not only because she isn't confident in her acting but sometimes you want to take a break from the project before diving right back in.
Only mentally challenged people would like a retarded choice ending such as sacrifice Arcadia bay or sacrifice Chloe due to a magic tornado, especially considering that this ends the game with more questions than answers.
I'm not certain how many like and dislike the ending but it's not just lisg that hates it and the episode is clearly a lot more polarising than any previous one. Dontnod were forced to do a lot of damage control in the interviews that followed. Metacritic's user score has only half of the users giving Episode 5 a positive review, while the other half are split between mixed and negative. The other four episodes had a much more positive reception.
Not everyone likes it actually. Even on reddit there are people who find the ending to be ambiguous, lack of closure.
Lack of closure, that's reason #1 why the ending is not that good in my opinion.
That's a big part of it (for me at least) but it's hardly satisfying for the two main characters and there really is no justification for the final dilemma. It relies on a very flimsy pre-schooler's understanding of quantum physics that even scientifically illiterate people like myself can tell is bullshit. Kind of like Bioshock: Infinite in a way.
They weren't trying to tell a well-written story so much as they were trying to make players feel sad. It's that incredibly lazy kind of storytelling where the writer assumes that "tragedy" and darkness makes a story deep.
Kate struggles to go back to Church, but Jefferson's arrest proves it wasn't her fault and makes it easier for her. Victoria shows up one day and publicly apologizes to Kate and tells the other worshipers that Kate's video was partially her fault (At least why it spread) They all say a prayer, and even though Victoria is not religious she feels happier.
Kate goes on to write and illustrate kids books. Victoria runs an art gallery, but unlike her parents she doesn't try to pressure people and instead features those with the most passion. She has a friendly rivalry with Max in photography.
Nathan is initially arrested and is facing a large sentence. His father pulls strings and flaunts money to get a reduced sentence. After some bribery, Nathan is out entirely. He runs away to Brazil to be with his sister. Before he leaves he sends letters to Kate, Chloe, and Rachel (Putting it on her grave) apologizing and hoping that if he returns they can try to have some type of civility. Not sure what he does, but he's a lot happier and saner because there's nobody to corrupt him or restrict him from getting help.
Well he would at least be his own man. So if he really didn't want to hurt people and be involved with drugs, he would stay away from that type of thing. It would be a test for him, and hopefully having someone that actually cares about him would help him pass it.
That's not very nice anon. Why can't we end the general on a more positive note?
The only things holding my hopes up are that and the possible fan movie.
Unless we hear news of Season 2 we really don't have that much to look forward to. And I fear we've run out of discussion topics. Cuteposting can only get us so far.
>tfw not looking forward to any other games in 2016
>season 2 not yet announced
I dont know how to feel
A few people posted about the cancellation over on Reddit (too lazy to look up the posts now). Not sure if the one guy who was speaking on behalf of the project (the director, I guess?) ever outright said anything, but they've deleted their official Instagram which is what they were using for early updates. I'm pretty sure I saw official confirmation somewhere, just too lazy to check.
Regardless, even if it wasn't cancelled ... come on, it's very unlikely they would have finished it anyway. Interest in LIS is already drying up pretty quickly, why would a final year film student (ie. someone who already has a shit load of other work to be doing) be motivated to continue such a project throughout the year?
I know the Instagram was deleted, but thought that was because it was leading people to false conclusions.
I saw it before the page was deleted and it was just some pictures of wigs. But people thought the models wearing them were the actresses they picked- which as of the most recent post from the Director was not something they have announced/ decided on.
As for why they would make it? It was from a site that's made music videos and short films already. They make it because they care about it and for the experience and if they do well they can show it off to potential employers.
>what do you think Max and Kate would get Victoria for her birthday?
Easy now anon. Let's just stick to snuggling for the time being.
This /lisg/ers anonymous /vg/ thread still exists! Great stuff.
Friends will be friends, keep on trucking, pet the pompidou, ignore the trolls etc.
Funfact: January 8, 2016 is the birthday of M. Roy "Like Tears in the Rain" Batty, pic related.
I dread that day. This is the coziest thread at 4chan.
This general helped me with my post LiS depression
and general depressionand I'm gonna miss you guys when it's over.
Regardless of how Season 2 turns out (I honestly think it's probably gonna screw up somehow) I'm going to make sure to be a regular on that game's general. I hope all the other anons show up as well. Especially Katemarshfan69 and Selena Poster.
You realise, Dontnod planned for episode 5 to split everyone in the community.
They PLANNED for most of us to hate it and for streamers to show how retarded they are.
Why else would they call it polarized.
They were referring to the fanbase.
All imagination and no logic makes Dontnod a shitty storyteller
Alright, finally have some free time. Time to continue playing this game.
