ahhhh this is one of the softest VNs I've ever read. (-':

This was short and so incredibly sweet and was such a pleasure to read. I especially loved the music because fit the atmosphere of the story really well, and although I personally can't really relate to the MC, I can definitely empathize and understand her background from how you thoroughly explained her story.

I think the reason why I liked this VN so much was because of the way you wrote it. (I mean duh majority of a VN is the story itself HAHA).
We really don't know much about the MC, and I was surprised to find out that her powers don't actually determine a huge part of the story. (I'm not sure if you intended it to be that way though.) Because we only know bits and pieces about the MC, I found that it was actually really easy for me to see myself in her shoes. Whether someone is a social butterfly, or someone a little awkward and unsure like her, we can all relate with the feeling of meeting someone new for the first time and worrying about what we say, that friend's impression of us, and how we carry ourselves around them. I am by no means a timid and shy person, but her worries were something I definitely have felt before.
In terms of mechanics, the artwork is really gorgeous and the GUI is simple yet still really aesthetic and unique. The way the plot was set up/written worked really well with the length--everything was described very well
(from the way Elijah's hair was clipped to the things on MC's desk)
, but it wasn't overkill and I didn't feel like any of the actual writing was "fluff" (aka useless or just empty words).

You did so so well and welcome to the community! I'm excited to see what other projects you plan on undergoing (-: ❤

I also felt as well that in this,
her powers don't really participate much in the narrative, I even thought of completely cutting it out.
I am planning a part two though, and there, MC's powers will for sure have more impact on the story. I already have plans on what events I'm going to be including that will revolve around that aspect of her more. Thank you for the feedback and kind words!! I'm glad you as a player could relate to her, that was definitely one of my goals. I'll keep working hard! : DD

Hi December!

So I just finished this VN last night, and the entire time I was just like “awwww”. :)

I think it’s shortness is good and allows the game to keep its charm fresh. I guess I “chose” Noah, although I wasn’t ever aiming to romance him...I just felt bad for him and wanted to try being a friend.

And guess what, we left the shore as a troupe, side by side, friends under fading light by fireworks and I loved it. Some consider “friendship” endings as consolation prizes, but I was aiming to be his friend and was...so to me, i won. Lol.

Your VN made me think of teenage summers, of purer times, of making new friends and the freshness of being young. Thank you.

Hi illuminate,
Saying you felt bad for Noah and wanted to try being his friend is interesting! I've never thought of it that way so thank you for bringing it up, and thank you for playing! Maybe I was too focused on the romance aspect, and didn't consider that players could choose between Noah and Elijah on wanting to get to know them better beyond love interests, and instead just as friends. I'll have to think on that some more!
Thank you again for playing, and might I say, you have such a lovely way with words!!
