It begins when you’re walking home late at night. Or maybe you’ve been left in the house all alone.

[Beware, Traveler, spoilers for the series below]

I've finally finished the first season and I'm still not crazy about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

[Beware, traveler: spoilers ahead

Every six months or so my dental hygienist (hey, Camille) and I get to chat fandom stuff, which would be even more enjoyable if I wasn’t trying to rave about anime with someone else’s fingers in my mouth. When she mentioned an adventure game called Life is Strange I agreed to play it on faith, knowing that Camille had yet to lead me astray. However, what she failed to mention was that this game would absolutely ruin me.

Taking a step back.
