Venus Meets Venus


Venus Meets Venus is a Twine piece that I created for IFComp 2014 (its 20th year). It was submitted by the September 28th, 2014 deadline for the competition. With 84 votes cast, it managed to reach 13th place out of 42 games and won the unofficial Silver Banana of Discord (second highest standard deviation of votes). It’s the story of the relationship of two women who meet at a bar. Saying much more may spoil it.

My personal rule for writing this story was to not hold back. I refused to pull any punches and I think that paid off.

Emily Short wrote about it here. Spoiler warnings, though!

Venus Meets Venus is also a finalist for the 2014 XYZZY Awards in three categories: Best Story, Best Individual PC (Lynn), and Best Individual NPC (Macy).
