This looks interesting! I'm guessing "3d5mo" is supposed to mean the third day of the fifth month of the year? Given the title, the numeric formatting, along with the use of military time instead of A.M./P.M. seems a little ominous. For right now, I guess we should get a better idea of who we are, so...

UMMMM

So we've got ourselves a dystopia here. Hoo boy. Okay, so... currently may 3rd? We're following a 16-year-old dude, and we're 2 days before his birthday, it seems. And looking at the friend list, DG hasn't been seen for 4 months, guessing that's important.

Oh. 18-month calendar. well then. so starting from not-December....

...oh. I noticed that WB is registered as a guy but refers to herself as she. Well then~ In any case, her reactions to DG vanishing are both heartbreaking and hilarious. "it was a fuckin fantastic shower lemme tell you, soap everywhere, just piles of sponges it was great" asdf

> "Another Blackeye Detained Near Via Oceanica"
is this the resistance :V

oh my god the church is a friggin pay-to-win mobile game

Hmm. Looks like she's got an email from a family member, most likely about her birthday? Could be interesting. Let's do it:

Hi I know you're asleep but I wanted to say a little bit more about that game we were chatting about earlier before I forget. I have to admit the gameplay is solid especially with the whole switching perspectives thing for each chapter. But I don't recommend playing it. Honestly the whole thing is just straight up propaganda. Who do they think they're fooling question mark exclamation point.

Good morning, my darling son!

I know you're on break and don't plan on waking up early, so I wanted to drop you a note since I probably wasn't going to see you before I had to go in to work. I'm sure you don't need me to remind you that your birthday is in 2 (!!) days! Your dad and I have something special for you, but I don't want to give anything away yet. Would you like to go out to dinner too? Be thinking about a place you'd want to go, but if you don't have a preference, we could always go to A Better Place again. You know how much your dad likes their steaks.

Have a great, relaxing day!
Much love,
Mom

> Read: News about blackeye

Welcome to AXSIS News 8.0.3!

v "Another Blackeye Detained Near Via Oceanica"
by Vander Olson
0812, 3d5mo


Residents of Via Oceanica breathed a collective sigh of relief today as, in the early hours of the morning, AXSIS Law Familiarity Operatives cornered and detained the blackeye that had been terrorizing their neighborhood.

Authorities state that the blackeye, which caused significant structural damage to an AXSIS DomicileUnit in the area, was captured with no harm coming to any nearby citizens. It was the third blackeye captured in the past month, putting this year already on track to be one of the most dangerous to date.

Blackeyes, persistent threats for as long as anyone can remember, are the mindless shells left over of people who cast unauthorized magic. They are distinguishable from normal humans by their horns and their black sclera. Blackeyes who have been at large for long periods of time grow even more monstrous, and the longer they go free, the more dangerous they become.

Citizens are reminded that reporting blackeyes, when spotted, is mandatory, and that AXSIS Cast is the only safe and authorized way to use magic.

[TT] And you as well.

1232, 15d4mo
[WB] hello maam
[TT] Hello, Fiametta. What can I do for you?
[WB] do you have some time after school today
[WB] your homework is kicking me up and down the street
[TT] Of course, Fiametta. Would you like to meet online, or do you want to come over?
[WB] can i come over today
[WB] i kinda need to get out of the house
[TT] Certainly. I'll see you after school.

1546, 1d4mo
[WB] do you have a second maam
[TT] Of course, Fiametta. What do you need?
[WB] im having trouble figuring out where to start on section 2
[TT] I see. Well, as a hint, have you considered drawing another radius in the circle between points C and F?
[WB] okay ill do that but i dont see why that would
[WB] wait
[WB] oh
[WB] oh i get it now
[WB] i shoulda seen that to begin with
[WB] im such an idiot
[TT] Now, Fiametta. You're certainly not. There's no need for you to be so hard on yourself.
[TT] Learning is a process, after all.
[WB] i guess so
[WB] thanks for the help
[TT] You're welcome!

1445, 17d3mo
[WB] good afternoon maam
[WB] what was the assignment you gave out today
[WB] my axsis won't load your page for some reason
[TT] Yes, that's been happening a lot recently. I'm not sure why.
[TT] Anyway, it was sections 3 and 5 in unit 14.
[WB] thank you
[TT] Of course!

1601, 16d3mo
[TT] Good afternoon, Fiametta. You weren't in attendance today.
[TT] I just wanted to make sure everything was okay.
[WB] yes maam
[WB] im fine now
[WB] i just needed
[WB] uh
[WB] some breathing time i guess
[TT] I completely understand. I'm glad you're feeling better now.

0907, 14d3mo
[WB] maam what was the assignment from yesterday
[TT] Section 1 from Unit 14.
[TT] Wait, Fiametta. That assignment is due today.
[TT] Are you just now starting it?
[TT] Fiametta?

0745, 1d3mo
[TT] Good morning, Fiametta. I just wanted to check that you were doing all right.
[WB] yes maam thank you
[WB] i appreciate it
[TT] Any time, Fiametta.

1632, 18d2mo
[WB] good afternoon maam
[WB] um
[TT] Hello, Fiametta. Is something the matter?
[WB] not
[WB] exactly
[WB] but um
[WB] i dont know how to ask this
[WB] things are a little tense right now
[WB] can i talk to you about some stuff
[WB] like in person
[TT] Of course, Fiametta. You can talk to me about anything.
[TT] Where would you like to meet?
[WB] is sly park okay
[TT] Certainly. I'll see you there.

1706, 13d2mo
[WB] good evening maam i have another question about the assignment
[WB] for the first part of section 4 i keep getting 17 as the diagonal
[WB] and ive done it about 5 times now
[WB] but apparently thats not the answer
[TT] Ah. I was hoping it wouldn't do that, but sometimes the application has issues with significant figures.
[TT] Try entering 17.00 and tell me if that works.
[WB] oh yeah there it goes
[WB] thank you
[TT] You're welcome!

1304, 1d1mo
[WB] good afternoon maam
[WB] can i work on the project with makani
[TT] Of course, Fiametta. Collaboration produces results that would be impossible on one's own, after all.
[TT] Just make sure that you each submit your own copy so the program doesn't mark yours missing.
[WB] okay thank you
[WB] have a good day
[TT] You too!

Good morning, my darling son!
#ouch

Your dad and I have something special for you, but I don't want to give anything away yet.
Curious how we'll learn about this since (I assume) the whole story will be through the smartphone. Maybe we'll learn what happens through convos that happen afterward?

Blackeyes, persistent threats for as long as anyone can remember, are the mindless shells left over of people who cast unauthorized magic. They are distinguishable from normal humans by their horns and their black sclera. Blackeyes who have been at large for long periods of time grow even more monstrous, and the longer they go free, the more dangerous they become.
OH. Not the resistance then. Kay.

Aww, TT is such a supportive teacher. Of course, now I'm wondering how those in-person convos went, aha.

Hmm. I wonder if any of these games are the one that she was talking about with Makani... But from the message, it sounds like Fiametta hasn't played it, and Take Ten is the only unplayed game there. (Well, aside from Second Chances, but that's a sequel to a game she has played. Hmm...)

[CB] Hey sorry I missed your messages.
[CB] I was out all evening I was at Ms. Kronopoulos's house.
[CB] She's like a goddamned encyclopedia did you know that.
[CB] Ask her about anything and she knows the answer.
[CB] She was able to recite newspaper articles from the last year by memory.
[CB] And she could tell me where every blackeye recently was found.
[CB] Anyway my point is that she made finishing my research project a lot easier.
[CB] The answer you were asking about is two pie over three at least that's what I got.
[CB] I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that that didn't get transcribed right.
[CB] Talk to you later.

[WB] so
[WB] propaganda huh
[CB] That's right.
[CB] The main character is clearly supposed to be an expy of the Goddess.
[CB] But it skips over all of the church's abuses.
[WB] yo uh
[WB] youre preachin to the choir
[WB] pun fully intended
[WB] but are you sure you should be talkin about how bad the church is
[WB] on a device made by the company that owns the church
[WB] kinda feels like youre buckin to get hit by a stray lightning bolt
[CB] Point taken.
[CB] In that case, take ten is a great game wink and I recommend everyone play it wink.
[CB] Definitely without a critical mindset wink.
[WB] now the million gold question is whether or not youre actually winkin when you say that
[CB] I actually have it set up so that when I wink it types the word wink for me.
[CB] It's very advanced.
[WB] oh cool
[WB] does it work for blinkin too
[CB] I don't blink know what blink you're talking blink about.

I've been having fun following this, and I'm glad to have the chance to actually toss my hat into the ring properly at this point. I don't know if we'll be going full Homestuck here (Suburbs addiction oh NO), but I think you've done a wonderful job of giving the different characters distinct voices through their chatlogs and bringing the humor despite the hardcore dystopia you've also been hinting at along the way. There are loads of interesting threads to pull on here; it's hard to decide which one to choose!

We gon make friends with a blackeye? We are totes gon make friends with a blackeye, I will Make It Happen. But for now, > Open: AXSIS Cast

Somehow it hadn't occurred to me that Fiametta lives with her parents! Then again, I guess she is 16... although is that 16 in our years? There are 18 months in this world's calendar. But we've also not yet seen a date higher than the 18th, so their years could still be the same length as ours. Hmm...
