EPISODE 005 // Fancy Reunion part 1 // Ribbon Drive

“And I can’t be running back and fourth forever between grief and high delight.”
J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey

Previously on Fancy Reunion part 1: Trent picked up Kyle & Chris from the airport in Maine and they headed west to upstate New York. They haven’t seen one another in a decade, not since they left high school. The pact made with their dead friend- the hub of their social group- has forced this reunion. It has been awkward, a lot as gone unsaid.

Ribbon Drive, by Avery Mcdaldno is a game built around mixtapes and road-trips. This story takes place over the course of two mixtapes. We all love making a mixtape, so the setup for this game was a joy. In this episode John gives a prompt at about 2 minutes 45 seconds to begin playing the mixtape in sync with the show, but it doesn’t need to sync up perfectly.
