Thank you for your post! I'm sorry you've been going through some rough stuff, too. College (and then the year or so immediately after) were some rough times for me, so I feel you. I've had similar sort of existential crises and yeah. Stories are how I cope and escape, so for me TLJ / Dreamfall are very much part of that time in my life. That's part of why I feel that accurate and diverse portrayals of people from all walks of life in games is so important. Games can be so healing.
We're straying a little off topic, but if you ever need to talk my inbox is open. *hugs* You're going to get through all of this. But if you need to talk or vent or bounce ideas off of someone I'm here.
