Spoiler :
Here's my stab at a non-improvised thread. Expect surrealism, mixed media (including low-poly 3D shenanigans!), a vaguely serious tone, and a cute aesthetic. :D

If you've been spoiled for the story because I'm a loudmouth in chat, please keep the speculation in spoiler tags!

ACT 0: The World In-Between

An echo of a memory permeates the void. An island and a door spring into existence, as the World In-Between prepares to accommodate a trespasser.

You have been chosen to assist her. Lucky you! Listen closely, now: What do her memories whisper?

My name is ­■■■■■ ■■. I'm 11 years old.
My favorite color is ____ and my favorite subject is ____.

Last week, my parents took me and my best friend, ____, to the movies.
No-one believes me—not even my parents—but something strange happened
in the theater that day...

As our heroine's soul approaches, the echoes scramble. An orange glow bleeds into the world.

Slowly, slowly, the door swings open.

Ah. There she is.

Let's leave you two alone.

Aubrey has welcomed you into her mind. You're now privy
to her Health Bar and the contents of her Inventory.


You can view the world through both this third-person view and Aubrey's eyes.
Simply enter the <SWITCH CAMERA> command to swap between them. When examining
an item from the Inventory, you will automatically do so from Aubrey's POV.


AUBREY
"What should I call you?"

"... ... ... ..."

Aubrey gives you a moment to sort yourselves out.

AUBREY
"I'd heard of collective guides being conflicted,
but I didn't realize to what extent they were..."

AUBREY
"'Council' it is. There's no way I'll remember,
uh, whatever your full title was."

[Image: she_talks.png?raw=true]

AUBREY
"I need your WILL."

AUBREY
"The last time I was here... it wasn't voluntary, and I never would
have escaped without my last guide's support."

She's quiet for a moment.

AUBREY
"The In-Between's strange about autonomy. We visitors may interact
with the world, but we're weaker than children unless we borrow a guide's WILL."

AUBREY
"On the other hand... for as powerful as your kind are, you can't physically
affect anyone or anything without a visitor as your proxy. No-one but me
should be able to hear you."

AUBREY
"Council..."
"I'm literally asking you to lend me your strength."
"Beyond walking and talking, I can't do much for
myself in this world. I'm defenseless."

[Image: pick_doors.png?raw=true]

Aubrey closes her eyes. The void shudders. Three doors blink into being around her.

AUBREY
"Pick one. The person I'm looking for's somewhere in this world. It doesn't matter where we start."
