So I read this over like three times, are Kate, GALE and Mira stuck in time? Like, repeating the events that happened the night that lead up to what the system's father did? Kate, a few hours before, when she snuck out, GALE, when she got home , trying to calm him down, and then Mira when the event actually happened? And then Virgil is still mourning the system's mother's death?? I'm gonna guess that Annie is the current host-? I dunno, just my interpratation-

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

haha! ti read my mind i was just doing research on did, then I left yt and wanted to read on ti and found this!(but i cant actually read scripts icant stay interested) I'm doing research bc of a rp character I do who has it and I'm positive she'll experience trauma in the future(i wish I had done research prior to bc now I really wish I hadn't given her did, to many complications... to late) but 4 more names on top of my other rps(I'm trying to do 4 rps without mixing up names, but one rp my character is 4 ppl, one rp i play 2 ppl, one rp my character had an identity crisis and changed her name to distinguish herself, and the last rp is another name.. and all her pets. so I try to remember the charter I'm currently speaking about but with a pool of 11 names and I have 2 names its to hard... and now I realize ill have to add more names.) what was I even talking about?

Fantastic play, very well written and the performance was breath taking (literally chills)!! Also, a wonderful tool to get people to break down walls and talk openly about mental illness!
