Caramel Mokaccino is, according to its Kickstarter page,

An otome (GxB/GxG) visual novel about love, friendship, college and coffee!

It's going to be a dating sim centred on a coffee shop, with a waitressing minigame. There's a free demo already playable.

The reason that this is a big deal is because the creators were on the team for Cute Demon Crashers, a free 18+ visual novel about cuteness, consent, and safe exploration. It has pretty much the same artstyle, and characters from the other game are making official and unofficial cameo appearances.

While it's not going to be 18+, it will allow same- and opposite-gender relationships (no nonbinary characters I think :c ) and have at least one polyamorous ending. Also, if they make it just a little farther in their fundraiser, they will release a separate, free "18+ fandisk" for the game.

... oh yeah, there are only a few hours left. Whoops!

I suggest checking it out when you get the chance. I am also totally not fangirling over the prospect of a "sequel" to one of my favourite VNs.

This is the eighteenth chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on. This story is designed to be accessible to newcomers as transhumanist dystopian sci-fi, and many liberties were taken with the setting and dialogue, as well as with certain events.

Content note: This chapter consists entirely of self-indulgent introspection on the part of the POV character. If that isn't your cup of tea (or coffee), feel free to skip it.

Author's note: This is a stand-alone story, which rewrites the ending of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story to be more consistent with its sequel, Hate Plus. It is also the next-to-last chapter of a complete fanfiction adaptation of Analogue, and contains spoilers for it. The route taken is (female Investigator | *Mute | love interest), and this story attempts to explain how the "love interest" part happened, largely using dialogue from Hate Plus which felt genuine but seemed chronologically out of place.

Content note: All the potential triggers you'd expect from a conversation with *Mute.

Absolutely no one has posted *Mute's lesbian ending on YouTube. And migrating to a new computer appears to have wiped out my saved games.

Guess who's about to speedrun Analogue? >_<

Barely any dialogue changes, I think, and I'm rewriting most of it anyway. So this feels kind of silly and trivial. But it's really important to me, because I have All The Feels about this story still and I want to be able to capture them.

This is the fifteenth chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on. This story is designed to be accessible to newcomers as transhumanist dystopian sci-fi, and many liberties were taken with the setting and dialogue, as well as with certain events.

Content note

This chapter contains a first-person account of suicidal depression and of an aborted suicide attempt, written by someone who has survived it herself in real life.

If you are at risk yourself, or feel you'd be triggered by reading such things, please consider skipping over this chapter. If you want to see the non-triggering parts of this chapter, which contain a pivotal moment in *Mute's character development, click here. Content note: More of *Mute's homophobia.

Either way, you probably shouldn't actually try to prevent an attempt using the method described here.

This is the thirteenth chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on. This story is designed to be accessible to newcomers as transhumanist dystopian sci-fi, and many liberties were taken with the setting and dialogue, as well as with certain events.

Content note: Sexism and not-particularly-graphic discussion of sex.

*Mute walked with me, down a mirrored version of the corridors towards the tram station. She matched my slow, lumbering pace, taking small and (I guessed) ladylike steps. Holding the train of her long hanbok, as though she were actually trying to keep it from getting dusty.

Sometimes, the glass "window" I saw her through was melted, sparking, or cracked, and she disappeared at those times. But she always came back on the other side, and patiently waited whenever I stumbled. It almost looked like she was having to hold herself back, from reaching out to help me.

I'd come back to the Mugunghwa to save *Hyun-ae. But for the hour or so that it took to walk to the tram station in magnetic boots, *Mute was all I could think about.

Because I was crushing on her, so hard.

This is the twelfth chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on. This story is designed to be accessible to newcomers as transhumanist dystopian sci-fi, and many liberties were taken with the setting and dialogue, as well as with certain events.

Content note: Sexism, homophobia, and a gendered slur. So, like, basically, *Mute being *Mute. Also, a bit of strong language.

Just so you know, I don't usually kidnap people.

But there was no way that I was reactivating *Hyun-ae to ask her permission, while she had root access and could use it to destroy what was left of the Mugunghwa. Besides that, I couldn't copy files that were in use, like an active AI. So if I didn't want her to die, I had to transfer her to the White Princess while she was inactive, before her code degraded in eighteen hours or so.

Was it legal? Was it ethical? At the moment, I didn't care. I wasn't trying to argue in favour of private investigators making citizens' arrests, and I wasn't thinking about whether or not she'd stand trial if she lived. I was trying to take responsibility for my actions. To save *Hyun-ae's life, and make up for pretending and leading her on.

What I am ashamed of is not consulting with *Mute, before I deactivated her core so that I could re-power *Hyun-ae's.

Author's note: It's been over a year since I posted the last chapter of the Analogue fanfic adapt. But the emotions that forced me to write it are still raw ... as I learned when I fired up the sequel, Hate Plus, on my new laptop, just to see if it'd run.

I couldn't sleep last night, and was really depressive as well. So instead of laying there being miserable, I wrote the next chapter instead. This one deals a bit more with the Investigator's semi-mysterious backstory ... as well as Hyun-ae's fate.

The story so far )

This is the eleventh chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on. This story is designed to be accessible to newcomers as transhumanist dystopian sci-fi, and many liberties were taken with the setting and dialogue, as well as with certain events.

Content note: Child abuse, non-human animal abuse, graphic violence, and strong language.

I paced the length of my cage, back and forth, over and over again.

Step, step, turn around. Step, step, turn around. Brushing my wet nose against dry plastic every time. Feeling my tails bunched up behind me, curled in an arc that mirrored my nearly circular path. There was no room to swish them, no room to stretch. Barely enough room to walk.

It was maddening.
