About the Story

You've prepared for this conversation. You've rehearsed your lines, cooked up whatever possible scenarios could happen, thought of what they would say.
You're ready. This time, you'll make them stay.

Content warning: Friends can wound with the deepest cuts. If this strikes someplace tender, tread carefully.
Created for the 2024 Dialogue Jam on Twine. Constructive feedback appreciated!

Impossible indeed, May 11, 2024

The Impossible Conversation is, like its name suggest, an impossible conversation, or at least one that will probably not lead to a happy ending in its current form. You (an unnamed person) is having a conversation is your (probably former) best-friend following an unexplained conflict. Your choices in where you bring the conversation forward should influence how your relationship with the person go.

Due to the nature of the conversation, the writing is heartbreaking and painful. The end of relationships are hard, especially when people have strong bonds with one another, and it is the more painful when both parties have hurt one another (though, in this case, the hurt seems more one-sided). The bareness of the interface (keeping to the base Harlowe UI) and interactivity (click to show the next words) does add to the struggle and dreariness of the situation.
