Ahhh, this definitely made my day! >w< Playing it right away!~ I love the story and characters of Arena Circus so much <333 And the music! I decided to replay it from the start and I'm just admiring everything I fell in love with! <33 Was the small drawing of Lilie and Aldrich leaving the tent always there? I didn't notice it before and I have to say it's adorable. <33

Aw thanks so much. ;u; This made my day. Yes it was always there! I'm glad you're still finding new things you like about the game. >w< Just let me know if you find any bugs and I'll fix them as soon as I can! (there's probably so many bugs i'm so scared omg)

owo!! >w<!! <3!~

I just went through my first playthrough and I'm super excited to go again when I have time! :> I love Natalia's personality, and like Lilie, I think it's really cute how she words sentences xD. She has such nice intentions though! And I'm really pumped up for the drama Owo. The world building is great and the first chapter is almost like a slice of life visual novel set in a fantasy world, but I love how as I progress to the other chapters more and more details are revealed! I'm pretty sure Lilie will get involved with a lotttt more things than she expected. And I wonder about Aldrich's past and his intentions a lot too Owo~

As for bugs, when I tried to access the galley, it brought me to a rollback page. Was that on purpose? :> It's really minor though and doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the game of course! >w<~
Could I ask for some hints on how to get Aldrich to dance with me? :'D

Quick writing update, ch 4 has around 5,000 words! I'm trying to keep to a 1,000 word a day schedule, so with any luck it should be done by the end of April.

I've been posting some on twitter so here's an excerpt for those who care to read!

edit: And I'll try to remember to post updates here, but if you want regular updates and sneak peaks you can follow me on twitter @capminyan!
"I never really noticed how lanky Santana is before. His intimidating gaze and gruff demeanor make him look like a tigher, but sitting up on Aldrich's back like a spoiled child, he looks like a disgruntled kitten."

aldrich "So is Lucy able to make you laugh, or are you just this grumpy at all hours of the day?"

santana "Master Lucy's evolved sense of humor is far beyond what someone like you could understand."

"Okay, he has to be jerking us around now. 'Evolved sense of humor'? What does that even mean?"

lilie "Careful Aldrich, wouldn't want to drop him..."

"Santana glares at me."

santana "You stay away."

lilie "What? I'm not doing anything. I would never trip Aldrich."

aldrich "..."

Current word count for chapter 4 is about 11,000 words!

I've also been changing around the gallery for ease of use:

Ch 4 is at 15,000 words! Here's a small excerpt:
leslie "..."
leslie "...So..."
leslie "..."
leslie "So you're saying I should... seduce him?"
"I spit out my water."
lilie "Uh, no, not what I said, nope."
Also, Arena Circus has over 11k downloads! Thanks so much guys. I'm going to be doing some art in thanks, you can weigh in on what you'd like to see drawn by voting in the poll on my twitter page @Capminyan!
