Remember when Love is Strange dropped and the fandom was happy together. I miss that. Ima play it again soon :3 it’s so cute and fluffy and gay and it made me tear up more times than I wanna admit lol Also if you haven’t played it please please consider it. Life is Strange is great….for awhile….but Love is Strange?? PERFECTION.[1]
Best fan-made game I've ever played.[2]
Warren and Nathan should have been romance options for Love Is Strange. This is an alternate universe where Jeffershit does not exist, therefor no horrible manipulation and erosion of Nathan’s mental health. Warren is Max’s friend and one of her love interests and Max is Bisexual. Really don’t understand why there is no option to choose Warren or Nathan for the fans of the characters and Caulscott and Grahamfield[3]
