Emma the Trust Fund Baby, by garcia1000
1 of 5 people found the following review helpful:twine empowerment against the system, September 12, 2017
this clickable static fiction reads so single-mindedly and plays so linearly that even the author seemed to get bored with it and thus finally offered one more choice, one that seems central to the plot:
Emma takes a "gap year" after graduation in order to find out what she really wants to do with her life.
> Travel, vacation, shopping! London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, New York!
> Compassion and volunteer work. Helping the poor in society and striving for a fair and just world.
it was obviously very out of character for Emma, thus I chose the latter and guess what?
It was tedious and uninteresting work, and she decided to find something more useful to with her life instead.
sure enough, there was no real choice in the single-minded rage propaganda with a 1-dimensional character about as deep as the author's mind... so much for choice-games... the only real choice here is to keep churning and filling ifdb with 1-star clickable static fiction...
