Coding help for brackets

Can someone tell me where I’m missing my { } ?
I’m usually really good at catching these, but I just can’t seem to find my error.





If anyone knows, please help :slightly_smiling_face:

Your elif on 1114 i think is the issue I only see one bracket there :thinking:

choice “Tell Nat the truth, there’s no need to lie” {

    FEMALE (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
Yeah...

    FEMALE (talk_exhausted)
I'm sorry Nat, so mu-

    NATALIA (talk_deny_neutral)
Hey! Don't start that

    NATALIA (talk_armscrossed_neutral_loop)
I know your schedule has looked like hell let loose

    NATALIA (idle_handsonhips_neutral_loop)
No need to apologize

    NATALIA (laugh_chuckle)
But no [FEMALE], we never talked about it!

    NATALIA (talk_armsraised_neutral)
I wanted to surprise you

    NATALIA (show_phone_happy)
See, I'm coming with you

@FEMALE starts react_claphands_happy

    FEMALE (talk_exclaim_yes_happy)
This is about to be one of the best New York trips

@NATALIA starts laugh_chuckle

    NATALIA (talk_excited_happy)
Oh! Also-

@NATALIA +1
readerMessage Nat loves that you’re always honest with her
readerMessage | color:lavender , animation:shuffle-sideways | Natalia +1
gain truth_to_nat

} “Lie and cover up that you forgot” {

    FEMALE (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
No, of course not! How could I forget that?

    NATALIA (eyeroll_sarcastic_atcamera)
Really?

@FEMALE starts idle_awkward_uneasy_loop

    NATALIA (idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop)
Well, I'd love to know how you knew that I was going

    FEMALE (talk_awkward_loop)
We talked about it remember?...

    NATALIA (idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop)
Now didn't. I was surprising you today with the news

    FEMALE (talk_exhausted)
I'm sorry Nat

    NATALIA (talk_armscrossed_angry_loop)
I don't know when we started this lying thing, but it should leave

@FEMALE starts idle_sad_loop

    NATALIA (talk_apathetic)
By the way, your lying is awful

    FEMALE (talk_awkward_loop)
It's because I hate lying to you

readerMessage Nat doesn’t get why yu’re lying to her
readermessage | animation:shuffle-sideways , color:salmon |-1 Natalia

}

    NATALIA (talk_armscrossed_neutral_loop)
I have all of our activities planned out- were saying at the 5 Seasons, we have some spa apointments, shopping, etc

    NATALIA (talk_apathetic)
Practically we'll be living our best lives in New York

    FEMALE (talk_excited_happy)

    NATALIA (talk_agree_happy)

@pause for 1
@FEMALE starts eyeroll_sarcastic

    FEMALE (laugh_giggle)
I love you Nat! You're the best

    NATALIA (talk_primp_neutral)

    NATALIA (laugh_chuckle)

    NATALIA (talk_armsraised_neutral)

choice “Apologize to Nat for lying” {

    FEMALE (talk_sad_timid_loop)
I'm really sorry for lying to you, I just didn't want to let you down

    NATALIA (talk_reassure_neutral)

    FEMALE (talk_armscrossed_shrug_neutral)
Nothing!

    FEMALE (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
I need to get to my meeting

    NATALIA (talk_exhausted)

}

}
@transition shade out

Are you sure,??I’m pretty sure I have both :((

before choice Apologise for lying, you need a }? Unless, that’s meant to be an integrated choice.

Oh never mind, I was wrong, you do have one for it! Let me read through it again.

Try putting a @pause for a beat in between the 2 brackets. I’ve gotten errors for that before. But other than that I don’t see anything else :thinking:

Alrighty! One sec.

Nope :pleading_face:

It’s a choice, then an if/elif, then a choice within the elif

Line 1060, the “m” in your reader message is lower cased. It’s suppose to be capitalized
