Comment on Not Real

  1. Honestly i'd never thought of Natsuki as an act of mercy i just kinda thought she was "to hell with this" and honestly I'm glad we didn't have to do another run through with Natsuki and Monika because aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

    Although now I'm going to be overthinking what parts could have been the girls going outside of the script. Like Natsuki giving you the "poem" asking to get help for Yuri. Because I'm pretty sure that that wasn't planned.

    And how self aware do you think they really are? Like it's been shown that Monika and Sayori can both become self aware, and there are points where Yuri realizes that "hmmm something's wrong with the way I'm acting"

    TLDR that has nothing to do with what i just wrote, I just really freaking love this fanfic. It's a great character study.

    1. A cute girl with blond hair, blue eyes, bunny ears, and a cat tail. She wears a butterfly-themed dress in the trans pride colors, with a matching choker. The background is a rainbow butterfly pattern.

      I mean yeah, that's always possible too. There's plenty of potential reasons why she might have done things the way she did. Maybe it was mercy, maybe it was "to hell with it, everything's broken, might as well cut to the chase", maybe it was because she didn't think the player would stick around for a third round with just her and Natsuki, maybe it was because she didn't think a round with just her and Natsuki with the player would be very pleasant at all and she just didn't feel like putting anyone through it.

      Oh yeah, Natsuki's poem is definitely a possible instance of self-awareness. So is that one remark Yuri made to Monika.
      Hmm. It's a little doubtful they'd have shown much if any self-awareness during act 1. Though, it's possible that Monika(due to her revelation) was acting out of it, prompting the others to act just slightly different than the original script. Not enough to break anything, but enough for things to stray from the base a little. Sort of a subtle ripple effect, I guess.
      Since things were breaking in act 2, just about anything could have been self-awareness. Though, plenty could also have been Monika messing with the script.
      In act 4, Natsuki and Yuri's behavior being different could have been self-awareness mixed with the script. It could also have been that Sayori tweaked their code to minimise their negative qualities though(though it's just as possible Monika had tweaked their code in act 1 to increase their negative qualities).
      We've seen for sure though that whoever gets the position of club president gains the meta-awareness.

      Really, there's so many possibilities, haha. It's hard to say exactly how self-aware they are.
