I think Grace/Clementine wasn’t dating the professor when she starts talking to MC, but she had been until somewhat recently and was in denial that he was arranging frequent meetings just to see and talk to her more so than for her actual thesis beyond her wanting to like the idea of the subject he picked for her with the possible hope that she would go back to him. It seemed kind of up in the air where she had ended things, but not in a clear way? Or the professor simply refused to accept the outright rejection in the end. But I remember her saying she needed to make it more clear that she didn’t want to be with him…?
I don’t compare myself to MC or try to pick a reaction that’s closest to how I might respond in the situations presented with the characters. But by believability I meant more by what was realistic. Though, again, it’s a game and it’s about the sometimes crazy adventures as MC and the character navigate a budding relationship.
I like Angel/Emmalyn a lot despite it being more sweet than a wild adventure though I did pick liking a hamburger on a date at the vegan place to see how she would respond. I also like the supernatural element with the curse in Vitoria/Sage’s story though much less keen on hooking up with her while in here werewolf form. No thanks, hard pass.
I don’t think anyone’s story has me hooked completely, but I definitely have those I favor well above others.
