Sneak peek: WW:U1&2 update

So, to get my brain back to work, I’ve been updating WW:U1&2. The biggest new additions will be the expansion of the MC to now play as male, female, trans male, tans female, gender fluid or gender neutral. It might not seem like a big change, but as it affects pretty much every scene that has yr angel or the MCs pronouns in it, it’s been taking me a bit. I’ve also been fixing up some grammar and capitalization issues to match the novels, as well as adding in a few additional *choice options here and there. I’m still debating adding another classroom scene or two to WW:U1, but as far as WW:U2, you all are getting an entirely brand new scene, dealing with picking out an outfit for the dance.

Here’s the sneak peek so far:

 

Of course, after all this you find yourself elbow deep in your closet, all your clothes brought from home strewn about the floor, bed, and chairs, and uncertain if you have anything to wear to such a dance.

*if (target != “none”) and (date = “solo”)

Though you’ve still some time to deem if you’re going to go it alone, you decided to see if you have options ready, just in case.

 

“I’ve got five sets of the regular school uniform,” you say to ${angel}, pushing aside the beige pantsuits to one side of the closet, the hangers making a little scrapping noise as they slide along the bar. “The one ‘dress’ uniform, which is the same as the others, except for this heavier, braided gold trim, and then there’s all my clothes from home.” Peering at where they lay across the room, you tap your finger on your chin, pondering.

 

*if nationality = “Aralim”

Most Aralim clothing is very plain, made of sturdy materials and built for comfort and practicality. Good enough for lounging around in during your non-class time, only one outfit could be considered ‘fancy’, and it’s a hand-me-down from an older sibling that is least six years out of style and the same beige color as your regular uniforms.

*if nationality = “Nor’wah”

Most Nor’wah fashion is made for warmth and ease of movement, heavy wools to keep out wetness and preserve body heat. While some of the lighter shirts and leggings are good enough for lounging around in during your non-class time, only one outfit could be considered ‘fancy’. It’s the traditional outfit of your pack, used for high-holidays and heavy in embroidery detailing your family’s hunting and fighting exploits– perhaps not the best choice for this type of gala, though you’d never think twice about wearing it to big gatherings back home.

*if nationality = “Lubreean”

Most Lubreean clothing is very light and airy, loose, silky materials meant to combat the heat of the south and dry quickly during the rainy season. Since coming to Tar’citadel, you’ve been wearing them in layers, the cold getting to you even indoors most days. The single piece you have that could be considered ‘fancy’ is a hand-me-down from an older sibling that is least six years out of style and you’ll likely freeze to death even in a room full of people. (Or at least be fairly uncomfortable for the duration.)

*else

Most human clothing from the Tazu Nation mimics the fashions worn by Tazu themselves, loose, draping things meant to be removed quickly in order for the shapeshifting Tazu to turn into their tyrn forms. (Or made of Tazu leather, which would shift with them, but humans of course do not wear such things; rather you have a lot of belts and accessories made from slaga leather.) Lacking sleeves and overall cut rather short, you’ve been using most of your wardrobe in conjunction with your school uniform to combat the cold of Tar’citadel, which seems to get to you even indoors. The single piece you have that could be considered ‘fancy’ is a hand-me-down from an older sibling that is least six years out of style and you’ll likely freeze to death even in a room full of people. (Or at least be fairly uncomfortable for the duration.)

Hands on your hips, you sigh. “I just don’t know if what I have is good enough, ${angel}.”

 

[i]”Does what you wear really matter so much?”[/i] ${ahe} inquires. Fluttering down, ${ahe} flits across the room like a hummingbird, alighting briefly to examine each of your outfits before stopping to hover inside the closet. [i]”Your friends see you every day as you are. I thought clothing is for protection and expression, yes? Are you trying to express something different than normal?”[/i]

 

From here you will have choices as to what you’re trying to express, and then who you want to go to for help getting a new outfit, and then multiple choices on what, exactly you’re going to wear to the ball. And fear not, all this is not in vain; the right outfit could just boost yr date’s opinion of you, or cause some other interesting side effects. 😉

 

I will release this update as soon as i’m done the pair of games, so *hopefully* by summer’s end. 🙂
