Back at it; writing that is. Trying things a little different than Act I: taking the time to write "plot notes," or a very loose outline of each character's path. If any stray bits of dialogue sound good, Ijot those down. But, it's mostly the plot branches, menus, choices and the like.
Once I sit down with the right mental attitude -- and coffee or alcohol -- the interactions will take care of themselves... usually.
Yesterday was six hours and 8 cups of coffee only to slam against a wall: how in the Hell do women think? So, break out the big guns: I asked my wife. I outline Atti's situation and the drama into which both she and Shirou were cornered. Not really knowing how the female species thinks, I asked what a guy should say to provoke a Good End, and what would guarantee a Bad? She had to explain it twice, but about 45 minutes later, it's all good.
Atti's plot notes are complete. Rimu next.
