[up] I believe that after Taylor mentions her mom being in the hospital, you need to rewind and mention that in the conversation.

I wonder what sort of consequences that might have...

I'm also thinking that Brooke's drone might prove useful later in the story, but I'm not sure.

Oh God! Natural light!

I tried to be nice to Victoria in ep1 but she's carried on being a bitch, so fuck the lot of them. I remember Taylor mentioning her mother, but I did nothing about it, and I'm pretty sure the result was 'not nice' at the end. I don't think it was one of the big decisions though.

I didn't realize that there was something to protect Allyssa from hitting her head again. I didn't even see it which surprises me because I'm usually rather good about finding these moments.

It did kinda come out of the blue. I was just walking along the corridor when something flew out of the door and hit her. I just rewound and spoke to her before it happened.

Yeah, I walked by the bathroom and looked at a roll of toilet paper on the ground and Max mentioned something about "Rewinding to prevent this TP accident." So I did. I didn't even see it happen the first time.

I didn't even see it happen. I thought she was talking about the TP Accident that occurred in the first episode because, where it lands, that area was covered in TP in the first episode.

Faction Paradox is a series where, among other things, people often discover they can manipulate time and the destinies of people around them.

And also where most of the stories have extremely sarcastic, sorta hipsterish gay/bi ladies as the protagonists/narrators. Oftentimes with the time powers.

...Our FP page doesn't take note of that as such, but our page is. Um.

Needs work. I have no idea where to start, and haven't for a while now.

She's basically me.

I love it.

EDIT: So this is creepy.

Warren is so fucking creepy. I don't know if it's intentional, but he definitely seems like the type of guy who'd fly off the handle and rant about getting "Friendzoned" if he told Max he liked her and she rejected him.

[up][up] I did not. Which seemed to bite me in the arse when I tried to tell the Principal about other stuff later on.

I hadn't been getting creepy vibes from Warren, but yeah, I can sorta see it now. I think he's probably sound really though. I'm certainly going to carry on playing it that way, unless something happens to prove otherwise.

Which reminds me, does anyone else ever get torn between one choice and another because you're choosing between what you think Max would do and what you, as a gamer, would do?

I was gonna redo a thing where I agreed to go to the movies but.

Nah.

Anyway.

I saved Kate.

...I was kinda worried what with the thing where I took a picture of her and Madsen.

In my defense. Um.

Having proof of things is nice.

...Anyway.

Mr. Jefferson's victim blaming bullshit kinda weirded me out too, so I kinda gave him the heat. He was kind of the most immediately to blame. I mean, Nathan has the majority of the actual blame, but. Kate went up to Mr. Jefferson before class to talk to him and get help and he ended up driving her off in tears.

Thirty minutes later she's on top of a roof.

He's kind of responsible. For the specific incident, at least.

Nathan though. I mean.

I don't think he'd really care about suspension. He doesn't, actually. I rewinded shit a few dozen times.

I doubt this is the last time we're going to get the chance to give him what he deserves, and make sure it sticks.

Mr. Jefferson's been creeping me out anyway.

When you put it that way...

No, I still have no regrets about blaming Nathan, since he is the one truly responsible.

...unless ...Kate is lying.

No.

No, fuck that garbage, and how dare you.

No, Jefferson gets the axe for being a victim blaming tool.

Because Kate had been doing so much better, was getting help, had called the police, until she approached him for help and he told her he thought she just wanted attention.

Nathan will get his. I'm sure of it. But this? No. Jefferson gets it this time.

There's no way Kate is lying. And even if she were, Nathan's still a scumbag.

Nathan is absolutely a scumbag.

...But they gave us back the rewind power.

And. I know from experience that the people these sorts of lawsuits by stupidly rich parents hurt tend to be the other students.

And a lawsuit will involve Kate more which is not the sort of shit she probably needs right now.

I mean. I don't think they'll be able to put a case together in three days. But still.

I blamed Nathan. What Jefferson said was awful and horrible and fuck that shit, but I took this as my one shot opportunity to bring any of those three down and Nathan has been presented as the most untouchable so far.

I also officially believe Jefferson had a thing with Rachel, which was mentioned in episode 1. Something he said when Max connects Kate to Rachel struck me. Also, Art Teacher... Scrapbooking? They seem related enough to me at the moment.

[up][up][up][up] I'm not saying that wasn't a bad thing Jefferson did, but I'd still rather take Nathan down. Also, the closing montage showed Jefferson and the Principal arguing. I just wonder who was arguing what.

I told Kate not to call the police, by the way. I figured gathering evidence would be better, since the Prescotts are so untouchable.

Of the three options, Jefferson seems the most... decent to me. He's still kinda shitty, but he deserves the blame less than Nathan and David do.

[up][up] I told her to call the police. By law, police have to investigate these claims. I figure she'd probably already have all the evidence she was going to find anyway.

[up][up][up][up] See. I disagree.

I mean, Joyce can barely pay the bills as is. David does seem to mean well.

I honestly can't get a read on Jefferson. He creeps me out sometimes.

And Nathan. I don't think this incident will effect him at all. If it does, I don't think it will be now. I think this incident, and his culpability for it is something to be saved for a better day.

If nothing else we can tie him up somewhere on Friday.

Also: Jefferson lied. He told the principal that he tried to encourage Kate earlier. When, using my rewind powers, every word out of his mouth was to belittle her.

[up] Seeming to mean well and doing good actions with positive benefits are two different things. Madsen's speech when you return back to the school certainly suggests to me that he is trying to figure out WTF is going on at this school, but I had no proof of it either. And I figure this wasn't really his climax in this story either.

Nathan, on the other hand, I had reported him earlier and certainly would be able to get more evidence against where I had none on Madsen. That might change if I go back and take the photo of Madsen arguing with Kate, but I'm scared of being able to help her on the roof during episode 2.

I don't really expect the accusations against Nathan to stick right now, but I'm kinda thinking maybe if we get people looking at his behaviour now, maybe it'll make more stick later on. I dunno.

I'm not changing any decisions now. Probably when I have played the whole game I will go through it all again and try different things. And get all those bloody optional photos.

...Also, I came out of the closet for Chloe earlier.

This may have effected some of my decision-making.

I took the photo of Kate and Madsen before that and found it really helpful.

I answered Kate's call and told her to go to the police and cleaned up her board and the mirror and things, and told Juliet not to watch the video. I don't think that decision "matters" matters, but.

I looked around her room and her art and stuff. Tried to be as nice in that conversation as possible.

EDIT: I thought the optional photos were easy.

Got em all first try.
