    A. It's clearly the right choice. I swallowed full-weeaboo with Senya, might as well give this a chance.
    Never played FF so forgive the future ignorance.

    Senya got hooked with a coodere/tsundere pair right off the bat. That eased the pain (and made for an excellent date sim with ALIENS).

    I am sad that FFVIII setting does not get any love, though. :( It's always FFVII that gets all the fanfics.

    Time compression ended the FFVIII setting fo' realz.

    I am somewhat curious as to how many players I just lost, though. I'd try to promise that this isn't going to be dumb bullshit but I doubt anyone on the Codex would listen.

    Oh wait, we're voting for the second option, aren't we?
    Flopping to G then, obviously the correct choice.

    Take your time and discuss this difficult decision. There's a lot of choices to choose from, after all. I'll give it 20 hours until I update. I want everyone to get a chance to participate this time.

    Prologue Redux Part II

    The correct course of action is obvious to you. You turn right around and start hopping down the tall stairs towards the streets, taking three or four steps at a time. You're getting the %@#$ out of here, this is all @#$%ed. You reach the bottom of the marble stairwell just as a squad of MPs arrives, apparently reinforcements. One of them stops and recognizes you. You glance at his initials on his armor and realize who it is. First Lieutenant Davidson, an old pal from the academy. "Lieutenant Westford? What are you doing here?" he asks.

    "I'm, uh, off-duty," you mutter.

    "Off-duty? There is a terrorist attack happening thirty meters away from you and you're 'off-duty'? What the %@#$ is wrong with you?" your old friend shouts in your face, grabbing you by the collar and pulling you close.

    "I'm unarmed!" you protest. "I can't do anything like this! They've got materia and an ex-SOLDIER on their side!"

    "Who gives a @#$%? Find a gun or something! You're a First Lieutenant of the Shinra Peacekeeping Corps! Your responsibility is to protect the people of the world! Your own comrades are dying in there! And you're just running away?! %&@# you, you piece of #@$% coward!" Davidson says, throwing you to the ground and giving his squad the signal to move up. They charge up the stairs to the entrance to headquarters, and then into the place. Moments later, you see a red glow emanate from within, and then a huge blast of flames blows out all of the glass doors and windows of the entrance, charring the ground and walls, and the squad bounces out of the flames, tumbling down the stairs, some of the men in pieces. You confirm with a glance that all four men had been burnt to a crisp. The smell of burning flesh meets your nose. You nearly vomit. Then you realize that they still had their weapons on their corpses, which were in relatively good shape still.

    You pick up a rifle and check the magazine. It's full. You check the action, and it slides just fine, no issues. The wooden stock is a little burnt, but still solid. You can grab the assault vest off of one of the troops for their ammo and sidearm. You can also put on one of their helmets. You could charge the enemy. Maybe you can buy time for SOLDIER to arrive or something. Even if it's suicidal, maybe it would be best to die on your feet. Then again, you have enough money in your pocket to walk away from all of this and live a comfortable life, maybe get a job as a janitor or something. Something peaceful and safe.

    What do you do?

    A) Go up there and die like a man
    B) Run away and remain a coward
    C) Other

    E) [Tactical Genius] Do a circuit of the building, sabotaging all blue trucks and absurdly oversized choppers potential escape vehicles because fuck that minigame to limit the terrorists' tactical mobility in the event that they survive their operation. Do the same in the building garage if time permits.

    Now that sounds like a plan. I'm voting for this as well. It's just a shame we don't have any explosives as well.

    Making good use of the other function, I see. While this is a little metagamish, I'll let it slide for now. Gonna update in two hours, get your votes in.

    C) go to barracks and grab that cool Shinra troops uniform, while reporting situation to HQ on comms/telephone.

    I mean those uniforms were kickass, btw FF7 CYOA as shinra trooper? YES i am in, still didnt expect this to happen. We could try to regroup survivors to.
