Child's Play

An interactive fiction by Stephen Granade (2007) - the Inform 7 source text

Section 5 - Becca Thorsby

Becca is a woman. The description is "Becca is Jemison's mom, she is as loud as Jemison is quiet and that is very loud. Or very quiet. Anyway, that is Becca." Understand "thorsby", "pants", "parent", "leg" or "legs" as Becca.

Rule for writing a paragraph about Becca during Playtime: say "Those are Becca's legs by the loveseat."

Rule for writing a paragraph about Becca during Picturetime: say "Becca is all ordering everyone around."

Rule for writing a paragraph about Becca when the player is standing during Playtime: say "Becca is sitting on the loveseat."

Rule for writing a paragraph about Becca:
    if Snacktime is happening or Costumetime is happening or Climaxtime is happening, say "There are Becca's legs, they are by the rocking chair."

Rule for writing a paragraph about Becca when the player is standing:
    if Snacktime is happening or Costumetime is happening or Climaxtime is happening, say "Becca is sitting on the rocking chair though she is not rocking."

Instead of upstanding using Becca the first time: if the player is wearing the squid costume, continue the action; abide by the check upstanding using rulebook; say "Becca laughs this booming laugh and says 'Whoa, Farina, have you ever got a climber here!' and then she puts you back on the floor." Instead of upstanding using Becca: abide by the check upstanding using rulebook; say "Becca says 'Careful with the fabric! These are new pants!' and she laughs and puts you back on the floor."

Instead of Jemison upstanding using Becca:
    abide by the check upstanding using rulebook;
    if Jemison is present, say "Jemison pulls up on Becca who rubs Jemison's fuzz of hair and laughs and puts him back down on the floor."

Instead of a playmate (called p) upstanding using Becca:
    abide by the check upstanding using rulebook;
    if p is present, say "[P] pulls up on Becca who says 'Watch the pants, kid!' and she laughs and puts [it-them] back on the floor.";

Instead of giving or showing something to Becca, say "She is too busy with talking and adults and other stuff."
