PRECISELY! Really regret spending gems on this story. Like 3 gem choices is what I think I spent? the one gem choice that ACTUALLY unlocked a bonus scene (outfit gem choices didn’t unlock any scene other than like 2 pieces of dialogue, despite author in reader messagers saying otherwise), was miserable. It was the choice whether you wanted to go on some private lunch date (lol) with Michelle/Michael.
I replayed the story to try new paths and yes, as you said, outcome is the exact same for the story overall or just the scene. I feel cheated out of my gems now At least have bonus scenes that WON’T have to affect the plot, but a nice bonus as compensation, ya know?
I don’t regret spending gems in Fake Love True Love, which I spent the most on. I liked the story, tho it got better later on. It’z not perfect, but I liked the characters and plot a lot more than the former mentioned story. I’ve also been spending gems on the new Love Life story admittedly. But that’s mostly because thats the only Featured Story I can tolerate and because there are otherwise no Featured Stories I’m honestly interestef in.
