I was wondering something about the livejournals for the Red Girls. Robin seems to be enjoying the first adventure, and she's also the only one so far to have met the Mysterious Girl. So, I was wondering, does each girl die one at a time in the livejournals? I mean, will their be "Robin's Last Entry" at some point and everyone else dying some time afterward?

We don't have a clear plan for the journals. They are just developing like real journals do. Bit by bit, depending on what happens. In a way, the girls are telling the story of the production of the game. The things that Auriea and I are experiencing while giving birth to this monster. In allegorical form. So I doubt that they will die in public.

This is more relevant to the topic than anything actually posted so far, but it seems like the origional convo is dead anyway. *shrug*

I'm loving following the journals, and it's fun to interpret them. I saw that entry from InnocentRed about how some things were only half there as saying the forest is still on its way to completion. And the fun thing is, I may be wrong!

Yeah, I love posting comments on their livejournals and reading their responses...it's great fun!
Who thought of that, anyway? It's awesome.

I too enjoy the livejournals. ^^ They're really fun.

But neither Robin's nor Carmen's have had a new entry since the girls were posted up...?

Great idea making each character a livejournal page! We get to learn more about their personalities. Can't wait for some more updates on their journals. They all seem like one big happy family. Even the grandma has a page. I don't think you should have an end one that just says "and I died", but just make the last entry sound really foreboding, so that readers know that it's going to happen. And does anyone else love the idea of having to wander around to find things like the playground instead of actually looking for them? Oh, and do we actually get to climb trees? Because Ginger loves climbing trees...

I love climbing trees too!

In fact Ginger reminds me of myself a little, in years past...but then, I imagine almost all girls will have a character that reminds them of themselves in some aspect (I also find that I have Carmen-like moods).

If the characters die in their LiveJournals, it should be in a way as if it's being reported upon by another sister, or else - like Grahamstephani said - the last entry just being really foreboding.

Something revealed by the journals that I found really interesting:

When I first read about the game, the journey into the forest seemed like a one-time thing. Like the girls came from their house a long way away to visit grandma, and the only reason they didn't drive all the way was because there wasn't a road for cars.

Strange how it's something they do all the time. It makes their potential deaths seem more...unexpected? Random? Adds a 'when you least expect it' tone to the whole thing.
