Star-Crossed Myth: Teorus

Everything for Love

Teo was actually the first Wishes god whose story I read. I decided on Teorus, ruler of Taurus, mainly because that’s my actual sign. Also, I low-key hated Leon (Leo) and I had serious reservations about Huedhaut (Aquarius), seeing as he was the MC’s true love when she was still a goddess. Too much history/baggage.¬†Of the second half of the gods of Wishes, neither Tauxolouve (Sagittarius) nor Aigonorus (Capricorn) caught my fancy in the beginning. Karno (Cancer) was mildly interesting, especially since he was said to make Leon almost palatable (and not by being even worse). But for a a first foray into Wishes, I chose Teorus. And then I just never got around to writing about it.

So, here, after re-reading the story, I finally give you the write-up of Teorus, the Greedy Prince. Enjoy.

Kings of Paradise: Shirakami Kiyohito

The Walls Around the Heart

All of the Paradiso Four’s stories have been available for a while, but I was distracted by my lovers from the stars. I’m happy to be back with this title, though, as it is one of the rare games where I’m interested in all of the characters. Which, of course, was what made Voltage’s release schedule all the more daunting. We got one, and only one of these men per month? Talk about taking it slow…

Speaking of taking it slow: this story is a slow burner. It’s been a while that I’ve read a route where the movement of the heart isn’t even mentioned until chapter seven or eight. Thank god I can be so patient. On all fronts.

Star-Crossed Myth: Aigonorus

Worth the Trouble

I’ve often said that the gods in the Department of Wishes don’t interest me all that much, and of those, I have to say, Aigonorus was pretty much the one I found the least intriguing. I mean, he’s asleep, always, everywhere, even in everybody else’s story. Since he’s part of the second set of stories, I would have to choose him to protect me. Protect. How much protection can be afforded by someone who’s asleep all the time? Exactly. So I couldn’t possibly fathom how that should work. Obviously, neither can the other gods. But clearly, the King knows what he’s doing…

Star-Crossed Myth, Sequel: Ichthys

Dark Secrets

Ichthys is my unexpected other favourite. I love him. I know I love people who are a little bit like him in real life, and I know they also exasperate me. But there is something so irresistibly pure about Ichthys, something so innocent – there’s great beauty in that.

Since I recently decided to read all of his stories, the obvious place to start is his sequel, which I viewed with a measure of trepidation, because apparently somebody is trying to kill my darling. That’s what the blurb says, but, as we’ve discovered frequently with Voltage, that’s not entirely true. Ichthys is just collateral damage, as the real targets are his parents. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Not quite Otome: Food Fantasy

Sisters*, I have been remiss in my duties to inform you of the finer points of the world’s Ikemen. And that is because – after a lengthy summer break, of course – I became quite mesmerised by a game that has nothing to do with Your Crush of the Week, but is, instead, a kind of a Japanese-themed RPG with recipes. Yes, you heard that right. You are the owner of a restaurant, but you live in a world where personified essences of food roam the land. These are the Food Souls, and they are here to protect and assist humanity against dangerous Fallen Angels.
