Ok I’ve never read the original version and I’ve only read the first episode of this featured version (which was way too long lol). And uh. Big Yike.
First: generic “racially ambiguous” MC. Though she doesn’t have blue eyes this time so I’m sure we’re supposed to see that as progress.
Then we get generic Cool Girl™️ with this line:
And THEN her sister slaps her in the face and says “you know you MADE me do that” WTAF??? Very cool of episode to promote gaslighting in a featured story. So their whole relationship seems straight up abusive. It starts off as just the sister being abusive and awful but I’m guessing part of the MC’s makeover is now she’s mean and abusive too and they just have a mutually toxic relationship. We were definitely missing that on this platform!!!
Then they go to the sisters bfs friends house to hang out and smoke weed. But the most ridiculous thing is when the LI offers to drive the MC to school on their motorcycle after getting high. Wtf??? Community authors have had to take out scenes where you can see characters take psych meds bc it promotes drug use & here they are acting like it’s fine to drive under the influence??
It is a gem choice though, which I opted out of. Still seems bizarre to even include an option for high school kids to drive under the influence. Idek about smoking weed but the driving thing does not sit well at all.
I played with the female LI named Haley. I’m guessing the male LI is Harley. Here’s a bunch of name / pronoun errors
female LI branch errors
There’s another one where the LI shows up at their house and the sister calls her “Harley” but I thought it was just a typo. Now I realise it’s poor proof reading for the female branch, as always
Lmao, overall there’s no way I can bring myself to read another episode of this
