It's summer vacation, and Yvette is bored.
Auuuughhhh, she's run out of things to do. She could go to the library and pick up a couple of books, she guesses, but that sounds like work. She is not the kind of bored where she wants to do things. Paradoxically. She wants to sit back with a terrible movie and rip it to pieces, or click through a low-effort video game and pick apart all of the problems. Something easy and simple and satisfying, to quickly eat up the hours of this day so she can get to the next one and have a do-over, after she's had some sleep between her and this mood. Unfortunately for her, she doesn't have anything readily available. Nothing on Netflix appeals, at the moment, because of course her paradoxical bored mood refuses any and all attempted solutions. Of course. So instead, she clicks through Reddit, reading through post after post with glazed eyes.
It's not really clear how she gets there, but after falling down a link-chain rabbit hole, she somehow she ends up on some obscure blog. There's a glowing review of a weird indie romance game. Probably the beloved pet project of a group of friends, or a young studio that's just trying to get their name out there. At the end of the review is a link; apparently the game is free. Sure, why not. She'll play it. She'll check it for viruses, obviously, but she'd kind of like a change of pace. The game could be good. Or, of course, it could be awful. She doesn't really know, and to be honest, she doesn't really care. If it's good, maybe it can drag her out of this black mood she's in with adorable saccharine romance. If it's not, then it'll certainly be fun to snark at it in the safety of her own room.
She downloads and clicks the file, wondering vaguely if she's going to give her laptop computer cancer despite the virus scan.
