EDIT2: Oh, my whole being is itching for the story to progress 8D
Guys, can you promise to let me know if you feel like I'm not giving you enough freedom? I designed the RP to be like a game where you couldn't really control anything that your character didn't directly do :3 but I know now that you understand enough about Checkmate and Homestuck to be capable of more freedom.
Yep, you got Vieve's machines right.
And I think you're doing perfectly fine with the freedom. Now too much control but yet not too little. I think it's the perfect balance.
