Midgar Mist Plays Alter Ego (better this time)

The game begins not long before your first birthday.

Will you be male or female?

Female

You are in a warm, dark comfortable place. This has been your place since you became aware that you are alive. It's almost time to enter a different world now.

Select an action:

Come out Fighting

Yes, I can certainly understand how troublesome it can seem to be evicted unexpectedly. You have every right to feel angry. You were getting a little too big to be carried around in your mom's belly--those backaches were really starting to get on her nerves.

Besides, your dad had to suffer through a lot for the past couple of months and wasn't exactly Mr. Sunshine either. Get ready to be born in a flurry of waving arms, screams and a slap on the bottom.

Happy Birthday, and welcome to the world. From now on, life will begin to change rapidly. You will have to learn to accept responsibility, build up your resources, and manage yourself physically and emotionally.

The events that transpire over the course of the next few days include:

Your mother is proud when someone points at you and tells her you look just like a "little porcelain angel." Your rich Aunt Martha places a $1000 bond in trust for you. You develop a mild respiratory infection that causes some concern, but no later problems.

A woman walks into a room holding a blanket and a bottle with warm, white liquid.

Happy

Select an action:

Cry

How could these two choices possibly go together? I will let you go back and try a more sensible set of responses for now, but let me warn you: Choosing responses without thinking about them first might be interpreted as a sign of poor judgment. People who have poor judgment usually wind up having very difficult lives. Please try again.

Select a mood:

Angry

Select an action:

Cry

The woman is your mother. She interprets the crying as a sign that you need attention. She picks you up and holds you next to her where it is nice and warm. She feeds you. Some would say that you have begun to show a pattern of manipulating people who are close to you, but at your age a child cannot be spoiled.

Unfortunately, your mother doesn't know this and begins to feel as if there might be something wrong with either herself or you.

Select an action:

Stop Crying

Now that you are fed, you stop complaining. Your mother attributes your crankiness to hunger. You have salvaged her self-esteem and will be well taken care of.

Select an action:

Sleep

Good idea. Infants do need their sleep. As a matter of fact, most newborns spend a very small amount of their time awake (only about six or seven minutes of wakefulness per hour) for the first six or eight weeks of life.

What's even more interesting is the fact that out of all of this time, more than 50 percent of it is spent in sleep that follows the same pattern as adult dream sleep. What could you be dreaming about?

You are alone in the kitchen and begin exploring the closets and refrigerator.
Select a mood:
Curious But Cautious

Select an action:
Move towards the Refrigerator

You have a grand time examining and smelling many of the items in the kitchen. You are young but have obviously learned that many things can hurt you if you put them in your mouth. You should know that some of the other choices could have led to your early death from accidental poisoning. Your judgment is superb and will help you in later life.

You are touching something smooth and shiny. You pat it with your hand a few times.
Select a mood:
Confused

Select an action:

Keep Touching

It is flat and a little cool. Wait a minute! There's a baby in there. Who is that baby?

Select an action:

You
That's right! You are looking at yourself in a mirror. Isn't that a BEE-YOO-TEE-FUL baby?

Select an action:

Yes

You really are quite stunning. You are developing a positive self-image.

Your mom announces to you, during a heart to heart talk, that it is time for you to give up the bottle and drink from a glass like a big girl.
Select a mood:
Disappointed but willing to try

Select an action:

Give the Bottle Up

Mom understands how difficult it is to let go of an old friend and appreciates your effort. She has a box for you.

Select an action:

Open it

OH BOY! A plastic Suzy Fantastik Drinking Cup with Bendable Straw! Look at this! It even has your name on it. Mom tells you Suzy wrote it there herself. (Mom is laying it on a bit thick at the moment.)

Daddy says, "It's time to go to bed."
Select a mood:

Select an action:

Say “I don’t wanna go to bed”

Dad tries to bribe you by offering a bedtime story.

Select an action:

Accept the Bribe

You are so tired that the murmur of words puts you right to sleep. You don't even remember what the story was about.

It's Saturday morning, and Mom asks you to help with some chores. The Suzy Fantastik Cartoon Hour has just begun.

Listen to Mom

What a good girl! Mom makes you feel very important. As a reward, Mom takes out some special make-up and some old clothes.

Just before you play dress-up with Mom, the phone rings. She stays on for a whole two hours!

You are in a sandbox playing with your favorite toy. An older girl pulls it away from you and screams, "MINE!"
Select a mood:
Anxious

Select an action:

Cry

You send out loud cries of anxious protest. The girl sees you and brings your toy back. You reach for it.

SMACK! She slaps you right in the face and laughs. Her mother sees her and pulls her away. Your mother sees her mother and gives her a piece of her mind. It is wasted. This woman doesn't really care about the behavior of her child.

You are in the back seat of the car during a VERY long ride.

Mom explains that the family is taking a trip to the mountains. She takes out a book that has pictures of mountains and animals. She points to one with stripes. She says, "What is this?" You answer:

Select an action:

Say “A Zeee-burrr”

No. Mom points out, "THAT'S a tiger. HERE'S the zebra." This learning business is tough! (Don't worry, things will be much easier to learn when you get a little older.)

You are still not completely familiar with using the toilet. It is still quite fascinating to you. You have just finished, and have cleaned yourself like a big girl.

Select an action:

Leave the Bathroom

You have resisted a strong temptation. You deserve a cookie. There are some on the table over there. Would you like to take one?

Select an action:

Leave them Alone

You are a hard one to fool. You seem to be growing up to be a real goody-two-shoes. We'll see how good you are at remaining this way when someone offers you your first drink of alcohol when you are still under age.

Time to feed the fish. You pinch a small amount of fish food between your fingers and tap on the glass. There is no sign of Gabriella.
Select a mood:
Confused

Select an action:

Call for Mom

Gabby floats up to the surface from under a big, gray rock. Her eye seems very puffy, and her body is stiff. You are relieved to see she hasn't jumped out of the bowl.

Select an action:

Ask Mom about Gabby

Mom stutters through the answers to your questions. She is uncomfortable and sad. Mom explains that Gabby can't swim anymore. Mom says she's dead, that she's gone away. (How can that be, she's right THERE.) "What is 'dead?'", you wonder. You are confused. Mom says that Gabby has to be taken out of the bowl.

Select an action:

Flush Gabby down the Toilet

Even though Mom has on a sad face, you giggle at the thought of Gabby swimming in the bowl. You wonder if she will tickle you the next time you go to the bathroom. (Hee!) It isn't a real laugh, but you don't know what else to do.

Today is Dad's birthday and you would like to make him breakfast.
