Just did my first playthrough. Thank you for this. I jumped on the Wallflower route immediately because... well, I've been in a long distance friendship/flirtation with a gaming buddy for years, and I think it's permanently impacted my idea of romance. Late nights swapping in game items and instant messages in an MMO is an achingly familiar dynamic. We were supposed to finally meet in person last year but ahahaha WELP.
Fantasizing about a world where I could have been lucky enough to find out we lived in the same building is a bittersweet little bit of wish fulfillment that was nice to indulge in.
(... that same RL online other is right now messaging me to gently remind me that I'm up too late, a service we provide each other across time zones. XD I'll pass on the link before we say goodnight. Thank you for keeping me up playing this.)
