I literally just checked the story for the hairstyles and oml that ombre looks so cool! I was confused how it’s not a gem choice.

So far, it seems like this story is the typical ‘fake-dating’ plot. I have nothing more to add at the moment, but I would give more of my thoughts later.
All I can say that this story was a bit of a pleasant surprise considering my opinion of the author, while also pretty cliche and expected on its part as well

Damn, I don’t have the ombre options on mine. Can someone take a screenshot for me? I’m dying to see what they look like

Bump

How do I say this? The story is a bit of an unfocused mess so far. First the story is about the MC Ryan and LI (already forgotten the name) not falling for each other because of stupid band rules, then it’s about a fake-dating plot, then it’s a love triangle but not really because it’s seriously last-minute and unbalanced.

Characters are quite underdeveloped, especially since they are just avatars with quirks about them. Like the best friend character being a tease with guys for no reason, her LI being a narcoleptic, Tom the Tambourine guy being gay and fashionable, etc

So the main character and female protagonist doesn’t radiate much humanity, and the potential love interest is okay, but not enough to make me actually feel anything about him. Asher’s not as toxic and dominant as Caleb Thorn, though, so that makes me grateful, but I wouldn’t like him if I would.

It feels a bit weird to see significantly more choices to choose from that’s not gem-locked. Past experience has taught me that if you wanted to be a good wingwoman, you have to cough up gems to hook your friend up with someone else.

The premium outfits and some optional dialogue were gem-locked, but I’m not bothered by that. Gotta make the most of it :grin:

Overall experience so far:

  • For once, I was happy with being able to pick a premium hairstyle for free
  • It might be a limitation with creating the illusion of distance between Asher and Ryan, but it looked a bit silly that Ryan didn’t notice Asher standing practically in front of her when reminiscing her HS days
  • Episode, you’re not fooling me into paying gems for the same yellow dress I saw in Instant Princess or that I have easy access to in the portal’s art catalog. I went in sweats.
  • Weird love triangle indeed. I thought it was going to be with Kathy, but then it’s really someone else. And Ryan’s too oblivious to notice two guys pining for her.
How come I've never seen this male hairstyle before in the forums?
