LakeFriendzone

Lake is a phone fling girl and artist who contacts you, looking for a random stranger to bounce ideas off of. She punches numbers into her phone at random until it reaches someone (You). She is unlocked by getting three Sawyer pictures.

Personality[]

Lake seems to not be confident in her abilities as an artist, as she felt the need to contact a stranger for ideas, even stating that she dislikes her art and that she feels like a fraud. She says has had anxiety for months or even years, which she gets rid of by talking to you. She also says she has a "lack of vanity", not having much pride in her looks.

Trivia[]

  • One of the dialogue options mentions the quote, "Did he who made the lamb make thee?", a reference to an English poem, The Tyger.
    • The quote also appears in the American TV series, Hannibal.
  • She is the "Artist Friend" Sawyer mentions during her conversation with you. Lake notes that she is "always saying something nice to me", and comparing her to volleyballs.
    • Lake is working on a sculpture of Sawyer as a gift for her kindness. You see the photo-reference for that sculpture during your conversation with Sawyer.
  • She's the second girl that you send a photo instead of her. The first time was with Ruri. In fact, with Lake, you send her multiple photos.
  • In the mobile version, she has a bra on under her overalls. That means that her fullbody sprites without the bra don't exist.

First Conversation[]

An artist contacts you at random for some ideas. Luckily, you seem to have plenty of them.

1/54 Is the Art the Artist?
2/54 If something beautiful blooms out of a grave, should we remember that the seeds were planted amongst the dead?
3/54 If I showed you the shape of my heart, and you beheld its shine, what happens when you learn that it's part of a broken puzzle?
4/54 Where did the beauty come from, then?
5/54 Did you bring it, when you saw it?
6/54 Did I create it, despite a flawed heart?
7/54 Or can flowers grow from graves?
(A) Umm... I'll have a large pepperoni and some cinna-snacks?
(B) Is this one of those: "Did he who made the lamb make thee?" sort of questions?
8/54 Coming right up. =) It might be.
9/54 Pardon me if I'm interrupting you. Or made you feel uncomfortable. I imagine many Artists see something of the divine in their work.
10/54 I promise I'm not an ex, or a stalker or anything. I don't want your money. But even a tortured Artist that reflects on their creations cannot help but seem like a modern Narcissus.
11/54 And while I can't promise you my intentions are pure, I would like to say they are. Look upon my works, and all that.
12/54 Sorry for the random message. I didn't really give you a choice to join this conversation or not.
13/54 But I just...
14/54 I just needed a stranger, I guess.
15/54 So I mashed numbers at random on my phone until it worked.
16/54 I have a lot of people in my orbit.
17/54 But their celestial movements are... Well understood.
18/54 And I just kind of need a comet right now.
(A) That statement is insensitive to dinosaurs.
(B) You can only see shooting stars when it's darkest.
19/54 Very good. You're cheeky. =) Well put. =)
20/54 I like cheeks. They're crucial for my two favorite physical features. I'm certainly not seeking the sunset. I don't think I'm ready for real darkness.
21/54 Smiles and... the other cheeks. But a girl can imagine it's dark, if she closes her eyes.
22/54 ...you know, like bum bums. And maybe see the stars in her dreams.
Pause 1 hour pause
23/54 I suppose the real trouble I'm having is that I don't have anyone I can be...
24/54 Dumb with, I guess? Naive?
25/54 There are so many facades now, in my world. Ones I didn't see coming.
26/54 For as long as I've known how to want, I've wanted to be an artist.
27/54 But I've never really been sure what an 'artist' actually is.
28/54 And there seems to be an... impression. An idea. That exists in almost everyone's mind.
29/54 Of what an artist is. What she does.
30/54 How she acts. What she wonders about.
31/54 And if her thoughts are not oblique enough, she is too 'pedestrian'.
32/54 And then her work is as well.
(A) Yeah. But those people use the word 'pedestrian', and mean it. We don't listen to people like that.
(B) It's only a concern if you care.
33/54 I know. Truth be told, common sense goes a long way to keeping me intact. I know. I know the problem is the throne I give their critique.
34/54 However - I can't prevent the questions they raise. Because the one asking them becomes myself. It's hard though. My art connects me to humans. It's hard not to care what they care about.
35/54 Still, I really do wonder - all the time really - when I'm putting paint to canvas.
36/54 Is this me?
37/54 Is this inspiration?
38/54 Is this lunch?
39/54 And I don't know! And I don't know who to ask.
40/54 Because I'm afraid of collapsing some critical structure that lets people see a certain way.
41/54 So the more like an artist I try to be, the more mundane the reasons for my work become.
42/54 And I wonder, worrying about all this and disliking my work, if perhaps it isn't the Art. Maybe it really is just me.
43/54 So is the Art the Artist?
44/54 Because the Artist might be a fraud. =(
(A) You know, if movies have taught me anything, the answer is always the reverse of the question.
(B) I think you should just flip the canvas upside down. Maybe the Art is you.
45/54 Hahaha! Hmmm.
46/54 That kind of a perfect answer. That's an odd spin, but I kind of like it.
47/54 Or at least, it's an answer I can hear myself saying. I always flip my canvases to see the flaws. But I rarely 'flip' myself.
48/54 So, in other words, maybe a better question to fret over is...
49/54 Is the Artist the Art?
50/54 That sounds...
51/54 Well, it sounds very silly. =)
52/54 But it poses an interesting thought nonetheless.
53/54 Alright, stranger, I pose the question to you...
54/54 [Lake photo 1]
1/30 Pictured here - the Artist.
2/30 Is she the Art?
(A) I judge art entirely on the basis of how pretty it is. You're definitely a work of art.
(B) Definitely getting a James Joyce vibe now, but I'll play along. The Artist is beautiful, obviously.
3/30 You have a... way with words. Thank you.
4/30 A way that sort of makes me cringe and smile and blush. I feel a sudden need to assert my lack of vanity.
5/30 But cringe first. =P But honestly, I like this picture.
7/30 Ha ha! I think I look... At least a little nice.
Pause 1 day pause
7/30 Well, I appreciate your compliment. =)
8/30 Actually, you remind me of a friend of mine.
9/30 She's this wonderful, beautiful person. Athletic, kind, intelligent.
10/30 She's always saying something nice to me. Comparing me to volleyballs.
11/30 (In a good way.)
12/30 But she always finds her own words to tell me these things.
13/30 Genuine uniqueness. Every conversation I have with her is wild and fun and new.
14/30 I like when people put their mark on me.
15/30 So I'm trying to return that kindness with a sculpture of her.
16/30 It'll fail to catch everything wonderful about her.
17/30 But it should capture how I feel about her.
(A) That's... Actually really awesome. I know a few gals like that. And a bear.
(B) Sounds beautiful. Maybe send me a pic of the sculpture when it's done.
18/30 Ha ha ha! Well of course you do. Some of the best people I've met are bears. =) I might. But it is a very naked sculpture.
19/30 In fact, I was just wondering out loud to myself whether you were a bear. High praise, I know. I'll ask my friend how she feels before sharing it with random strangers over the phone.
20/30 So this has been an interesting first step, but where should I go from here?
(A) I'm not going to lie - whatever it is, I hope it involves that side boob. Because damn.
(B) You talked about 'making your mark'. Maybe you should try to make your mark on your own work.
21/30 Hahaha! Sorry, I know it's probably needlessly risqué, but I just can't comfortably paint any other way. You mean, like, 'literally' making my mark?
22/30 I like to put myself into my art. Emotionally, spiritually... And physically. Haha! Like - intentionally inject myself onto the work?
23/30 Hmm.
24/30 That gives me an idea, actually.
25/30 Hold that thought. I need to fetch one of my paintings from storage.
26/30 Don't stop being oddly thoughtful and charming while I'm gone.
27/30 Be right back.
Pause 1 day 12 hour pause
28/30 Okay - so this painting was originally titled, "Stream".
29/30 But I've changed its name to "Embrace".
30/30 [Lake photo 2]
1/51 What do you think?
(A) Now THIS is pushing the envelope. Instead of the Art, the Artist is the brush. Brilliant
(B) I KNEW artists did this, time to time! I swear I've seen hundreds of hidden boobs in art.
2/51 Ha ha! Well, if I had any reservations on this particular technique, that little turn of phrase certainly cements my resolve. Haha! Well, I can't attest to the techniques of other artists, but this was very sensual and cathartic.
3/51 The Artist is the Brush will be the title of the exhibit I inevitably put together for these works. I highly recommend it.
4/51 I haven't laughed like this in years.
5/51 Especially while painting.
6/51 It's actually very cathartic. Like shining a light into a dark room.
7/51 I've had this growing anxiety for months now, maybe years, that I'm a fraud.
8/51 And become more fraudulent with each work.
9/51 It's so strange...
10/51 How dipping my chest into the paint...
11/51 And pressing into the canvas...
12/51 Felt so - umm...
13/51 Loving?
14/51 Intimate.
15/51 I almost "peaked" just from the sensation.
16/51 For a long moment I just did this silly thing.
17/51 Just because it felt good.
18/51 I can't tell you that it's Art.
19/51 But it was sexy and interesting. And inspiring.
20/51 Do you know what I want to do next?
(A) I know what *I* want to do next. I'm hoping it's what you want too.
(B) Umm... Shall we say 'finger painting'?
21/51 It's what I want, too. Yes. And much more.
22/51 Let me tell you what I'm doing.
23/51 I'm pouring paint into the tray.
24/51 I'm letting it touch my fingertips.
25/51 It's warm. And sticky.
26/51 I let it set. And slide off my overalls.
Pause 2 hour pause
27/51 I'm pressing myself into the paint.
28/51 It drips dots everywhere, escaping the canvas.
29/51 I press into the canvas.
30/51 And leave my mark.
31/51 Two marks, in fact.
32/51 And it makes me laugh. Because no one will understand this when they see it. And no one is likely to like it.
33/51 It's just for me. Stirring this mixture of me and paint.
34/51 I feel free, and sexy, and ridiculous, and joyous, and confused, and sticky, and happy.
35/51 The Art is the Artist is the Art is the Artist...
36/51 I like painting.
(A) That was... That was a ride.
(B) You've definitely got a way with words. And paint. And breasts.
37/51 *Giggle* thank you. Thank you for saying so. I'm quite sure those things won't ever hang in a gallery...
38/51 I may have gotten a little carried away. Which is kind of the point. ...But that makes them better, I think.
Pause 12 hour pause
39/51 I should go.
40/51 Thanks for...
41/51 Well, listening.
42/51 Thanks for being funny.
43/51 And inappropriate.
44/51 And a little pretentious.
45/51 And charming.
46/51 I've enjoyed you very much.
47/51 I hope, like every good comet, you race through my solar system again some day.
48/51 In the meantime, I'll share one last work from my latest ouvre.
49/51 As I said, I'm calling this series "The Artist is the Brush".
50/51 I'll let you decide if it's Art.
51/51 [Lake Photo 3]

(A) I'm sorry. I had to look for like 9 minutes before I realized there was a painting behind you.
(B) If you're the brush, I'll definitely be your canvas.
2/51 Yes, this is certainly less tactfully provocative than I usually approach a piece. You must always be careful how much of your body you offer to an artist.
3/51 But the feeling of warm paint on my nipples gave me a good feeling that I had done something special. We often find... Creative uses for them.

28/51 It tingles on my nipples, and drips down my belly.
29/51 As I press my body into the canvas, I touch my clit.
30/51 My body fills with fire. I hear myself gasping.
31/51 I'm pressing harder. I'm already climaxing.
32/51 I'm moaning and gasping and shivering.
33/51 The sticky paint tugs me gently as I'm lifting away.
34/51 I'm sitting. Riding small, lingering orgasms. Catching my breath. Letting the now be now.
35/51 The Art is the Artist is the Art is the Artist...
36/51 I like painting.
(A) That was... That was a ride.
(B) You've definitely got a way with words. And paint. And breasts.

Second Conversation[]

Lake's brain wants to flirt with You instead of creating art. Can you help her do both at the same time? The second conversation is unlocked by reaching level 25 Tenderness.

SFW Version[]

Progress SFW chat
1/31 Like a lonely lemon, I call out for aid.
(A) Hey Lake, what'cha up to girl?
(B) Greetings, from across the void.
2/31 Hello. Long time no text. Greetings back.
3/31 I've been thinking about you a lot today, actually.
4/31 Which was not on purpose.
5/31 My brain is rebelling.
(A) I have that effect on women.
(B) Umm... Sorry?
6/31 I'm certain you do. It isn't your fault.
7/31 You're like brain candy. And I'm trying to feed it salad. I'm trying to squeeze it for inspiration, and it would rather flirt with you.
8/31 And it's rebelling. You have no idea how relieved it is.
9/31 I'm having a creative crisis.
10/31 I'm utterly tapped for inspiration.
11/31 Stuck in a miasma of mundanity. A dull fog of tedium.
12/3! I'm bored. And the Art does not want to help.
(A) Oh yeah, Art'll do that to ya.
(B) Have you tried unplugging your brain and plugging it back in?
13/31 My old teacher was fond of reminding me that Art will... No. Though truth be told, I don't really know what that means.
14/31 Well... Let's just say "impose on" you. Usually I just follow whatever white rabbit hops by.
15/31 But she drinks a bottle of wine every class, and has worrisome views on mass produced shower caps. Tumbling into Wonderland never really took effort before. I'm rather concerned about it.
16/31 Perhaps I'm losing my edge.
17/31 See? Even that turn of phrase is utterly hackneyed.
18/31 Drain the Lake. It's no good for swimming anymore.
(A) Maybe you just need a little a-muse-ment?
(B) Maybe I can help? I'm helpful.
19/31 Sawyer is busy this week. She's helping with a sports tournament. :)
20/31 I confess - whenever I feel low, she's usually the first person I call. That's actually very sweet to offer.
21/31 But perhaps you're volunteering for the position? I feel... Like I'm imposing. But I appreciate it.
22/31 What did you have in mind?
(A) Maybe I can send you some art, and you can remix it?
(B) Have you heard of the Petty Museum Challenge?
23/31 Oh! Well, now that is an interesting idea. Oh! You mean those people recreating famous artworks with props?
24/31 I actually haven't tried something like that since Art school.
25/31 Which was NOT a pleasant experience, let me just say.
26/31 I was going through an anime phase back then, and Art teachers are allergic to that stuff.
27/31 But I digress.
28/31 So you'll send me an image, and I'll try to recreate it? Is that how it works?
(A) Exactly. I have a few favorites I'd love to see you try.
(B) I'm literally going to have to internet "Art", but I'm down.
29/31 I am utterly intrigued. No shame. I still do that. You should see my browser history. It's deviant.
30/31 Alright, send me whatever you like. I'm ready.
(A) (Send "The Birth Of Venus")
(B) [Only option. Turns into censored picture of Venus from Sandro Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus".]
Pause 1 minute pause
1/12 Ahh - that's an interesting choice.
2/12 I suspect you'll have no objections with a certain degree of artistic license?
(A) I may have ulterior motives with this one...
(B) I'm sure it'll be stunning.
3/12 That's practically the entire world of Fine Art in a sentence. I know it may be hard to tell sometimes, but I adore your faith in me.
4/12 At least in my experience. I find it completely unfounded, but I adore it nonetheless.
5/12 Alright, I'll have something for you in a day or two.
6/12 Thank you for your contribution to the Arts.
Pause 1 day pause
7/12 Hello, it's me again
8/12 I'm finished the first Artistic re-creation.
9/12 Ready to see it?
(A) Yup.
(B) Let me grab my monocle. It's preferable for Fine Art.
10/12 Brevity is the soul of wit. You're absurd. And you make me laugh.
11/12 Here you are. I beg your charity.

1/∞ What do you think?
(A) It's so great! I love it! :D
(B) It's... beautiful. I like it a lot.
2/∞ Thank you. Thank you. I literally have no faculty for accepting compliments.
3/∞ I'm very glad you like it. So... I'll simply assure you that I'm blushing, and thank you again.
4/∞ This was a lot of fun, and I feel like it broke through my artistic block.
5/∞ I'm going to go work on something new. But if I get blocked again, do you I could call upon my "muse" once more?
(A) I've got lots more art I'd love to see your interpretation of.
(B) This is literally the best thing. Of course I want more.
6/∞ I'm sure you do. As you wish. I leave the audience wanting more.
7/∞ Thanks again. I'll be in touch.

1/31 Like a lonely lemon, I call out for aid.
(A) Hey Lake, what'cha up to girl?
(B) Greetings, from across the void.
2/31 Hello. Long time no text. Greetings back.
3/31 I've been thinking about you a lot today, actually.
4/31 Which was not on purpose.
5/31 My brain is rebelling.
(A) I have that effect on women.
(B) Umm... Sorry?
6/31 I'm certain you do. It isn't your fault.
7/31 You're like brain candy. And I'm trying to feed it salad. I'm trying to squeeze it for inspiration, and it would rather flirt with you.
8/31 And it's rebelling. You have no idea how relieved it is.
9/31 I'm having a creative crisis.
10/31 I'm utterly tapped for inspiration.
11/31 Stuck in a miasma of mundanity. A dull fog of tedium.
12/3! I'm bored. And the Art does not want to help.
(A) Oh yeah, Art'll do that to ya.
(B) Have you tried unplugging your brain and plugging it back in?
13/31 My old teacher was fond of reminding me that Art will... No. Though truth be told, I don't really know what that means.
14/31 Well... Let's just say "impose on" you. Usually I just follow whatever white rabbit hops by.
15/31 But she drinks a bottle of wine every class, and has worrisome views on mass produced shower caps. Tumbling into Wonderland never really took effort before. I'm rather concerned about it.
16/31 Perhaps I'm losing my edge.
17/31 See? Even that turn of phrase is utterly hackneyed.
18/31 Drain the Lake. It's no good for swimming anymore.
(A) Maybe you just need a little a-muse-ment?
(B) Maybe I can help? I'm helpful.
19/31 Sawyer is busy this week. She's helping with a sports tournament. :)
20/31 I confess - whenever I feel low, she's usually the first person I call. That's actually very sweet to offer.
21/31 But perhaps you're volunteering for the position? I feel... Like I'm imposing. But I appreciate it.
22/31 What did you have in mind?
(A) Maybe I can send you some art, and you can remix it?
(B) Have you heard of the Petty Museum Challenge?
23/31 Oh! Well, now that is an interesting idea. Oh! You mean those people recreating famous artworks with props?
24/31 I actually haven't tried something like that since Art school.
25/31 Which was NOT a pleasant experience, let me just say.
26/31 I was going through an anime phase back then, and Art teachers are allergic to that stuff.
27/31 But I digress.
28/31 So you'll send me an image, and I'll try to recreate it? Is that how it works?
(A) Exactly. I have a few favorites I'd love to see you try.
(B) I'm literally going to have to internet "Art", but I'm down.
29/31 I am utterly intrigued. No shame. I still do that. You should see my browser history. It's deviant.
30/31 Alright, send me whatever you like. I'm ready.

(B) [Only option. Turns into picture of Venus from Sandro Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus".]
Pause 1 minute pause
1/12 Ahh - that's an interesting choice.
2/12 I suspect you'll have no objections if I appear nude in the final depiction?
(A) Oh yeah, there's a naked girl in this one, I completely forgot...
(B) Let's see those nips, girl! That's real Art!
3/12 I mean... If you threw a dart at a list of famous artworks, you'd probably hit one with a naked model. Generally I would be offended by such naked opportunism...
4/12 Boobs are practically synonymous with classical Art. But it wouldn't be the first time I undressed to fight boredom.
5/12 Alright, I'll have something for you in a day or two.
6/12 Thank you for your contribution to the Arts.

1/∞ What do you think?
(A) It's great! You look like you're having fun...
(B) Yes! Naked Lake is my favorite!
2/∞ I am. Though not, perhaps, as much as you may be implying. Well, I'm glad you like it. Though I presume you may be a biased observer.
3/∞ I laughed practically the whole time setting it up. Still - I would be lying if I didn't admit to enjoying the attention.
4/∞ This was a lot of fun, and I feel like it broke through my artistic block.
5/∞ I'm going to go work on something new. But if I get blocked again, do you think I could call upon my "muse" once more?
(A) I've got lots more art I'd love to see your interpretation of.
(B) This is literally the best thing. Of course I want more.

1/19 Hello, it's me again.
2/19 I hope everything is well.
3/19 Listen - unless you have objections, I would like to bug you for another Art recommendation soon.
4/19 I'll have some free time tomorrow, and your last prompt was a wonderful experience.
5/19 (Here's where you can object. I'm trying to learn not to write such long messages.)
(A) I would love to!
(B) Sorry, who is this?
6/19 Thank you. That's very generous. Oh, be careful.
7/19 I know that you didn't really offer to do this sort of thing long term. The last person who asked me that sent me on a half year journey of self discovery.
8/19 But I figured you would likely send me risqué artwork to emulate, so we both win. Because yes... Just who IS this?
9/19 I'll message you tomorrow.
10/19 Bye.
Pause 1 day pause
11/19 Me again.
(A) Welcome back!
(B) Why hello Lake. I do so enjoy your pleasantries.
12/19 Thank you. Always a pleasure. Oh, of course. Hello. My eagerness got the better of me for a moment.
13/19 I'm ready for the next great work of Art you would like me to emulate.
14/19 Though, truthfully, I've been sort of nervous all day, leading up to this moment.
15/19 I know this sounds silly, but my hands are shaking.
16/19 This is why I can't do performance art.
17/19 In any case, do you have a new Art challenge for me?
(A) Deep breath, Lake. This is your jam. It's delicious.
(B) I do. Say 'when'.
18/19 You made me giggle. You're very good at that. Okay, hit me. When.
(A) (Send "The Creation of Adam")
(B) [Only option. Turns into censored picture of Adam from Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam".]
1/38 Ahh, another classical work.
2/38 I'm unironically in love with Michelangelo.
3/38 Have you ever looked at the way he drew hands?
4/38 It was like he understood not just the mechanisms, but more so what they 'meant'.
5/38 Like having hands was perhaps our most important trait. That perhaps the soul resides inside them...
6/38 And they, as instruments of love and death, touched both our lovers and enacted violence to our enemies.
7/38 They were, as I have heard the phrase used online, pretty dope.
(A) I can draw this cool looking S if you give me a sec...
(B) You didn't even mention that the subjects were... Au naturel.
8/38 It is my considerable delight to let you know that I laughed rather doltishly at that. Oh, that part is good.
9/38 I'm sure you have a lovely 'S' <3 Though you'll excuse me if I don't recreate all of the anatomy involved here.
10/38 Alright, I have what I need.
11/38 Thank you for playing the part of my muse.
12/38 You're wonderful.
(A) Genuinely my pleasure.
(B) Good luck!
13/38 Well, wait for the end results. Don't need it. I already have you.
14/38 There's always time for me to mess it up. I hope that sounds like a compliment. I typed and sent it before really reading it.
15/38 Back soon.
Pause 1 day pause
16/38 So, this will probably sound a bit strange, but...
17/38 I'm almost a bit shy to show you the results...
(A) No no! No shy! Send me!
(B) How come? Afraid you won't make a decent 'bearded divine absolute being'?
18/38 I figured you would say that. No no. Many religions speculate something divine about our bodies
19/38 Actually, I figured something a little more... loquacious. But close. I'm sure if that figure in the painting is sapient and aware of me, they won't mind my attempt.
20/38 No, it's actually something I didn't expect at all.
21/38 I didn't come up with anything spectacular. The piece is somewhat unremarkable.
22/38 Just a simple vignette.
23/38 It's how it made me feel...
(A) Self conscious?
(B) Uninspired?
24/38 Quite the opposite, actually. No, not that at all.
25/38 This was... Fun.
26/38 It made me laugh.
27/38 And it made me feel... Silly. And joyful. And... Quirky?
28/38 I just had a great time with it. There was something endearing about it.
29/38 And I surprised myself.
30/38 So... I'm blushing in the picture, and I feel a little strange sharing it.
(A) That sounds AMAZING.
(B) You don't have to share it. But I want you to.
31/38 I'm shaking again. It's silly though, isn't it? My hands are shaking.
32/38 Somehow this picture makes me feel actually...
33/38 Vulnerable.
34/38 Are you... Okay with that?
35/38 Lake - revealed?
(A) You'd better share it soon, before the hype builds too high.
(B) That's... Exactly what I want.
36/38 Okay, now you're teasing me <3. Okay. I'm happy to show you.
37/38 Alright, here she is.
38/38 [Lake photo 5]
1/∞ The Creation Of Lake.
(A) You're adorable.
(B) You're beautiful.
2/∞ That's good :) ...Thank you.
3/∞ It helps me get away with things, I suspect. I believe you.
4/∞ Well, I'm glad you like it.
5/∞ I like it too. In a way I wasn't expecting to.
6/∞ I feel adequately inspired. Refreshed and full of fire.
7/∞ Thank you for your help.
(A) I wish I was there with you. I'm sorta full of fire too..
(B) Thank YOU.
8/∞ In absence of Lake - make sure to channel that into something beautiful. If you insist. You're welcome.
9/∞ Alright, I'm off. But I'll pester you again as soon as I need inspiration.
10/∞ You're a special person, and I enjoy your company, and your help.
11/∞ Everything you touch makes it more interesting. That's a wonderful gift.
12/∞ All the best.

1/43 Hello.
2/43 Me again.
3/43 How are you doing?
(A) Not bad. How about yourself?
(B) You want another picture, don't you?
4/43 Good. ...
5/43 I've had a very good week. Yes.
6/43 Which can be good and bad for an artist, all things considered. I'm not good at small talk. But I like you, and am willing to observe social customs to ensure you're equally edified by our conversations.
7/43 When it's not raining on you, it can be hard to paint clouds. So please feel free to stray down the conversational path of your own delight. I'll follow and do my best to keep up.
8/43 In any case, I'll have some time tomorrow to work on another piece.
9/43 And I would love your input, as you have so generously provided recently.
10/43 Can I count on your contributions?
(A) I'll find something truly challenging.
(B) Have you ever heard of Jackson Pollock?
11/43 Whatever strikes your fancy. Don't threaten me with a good time.
12/43 Because then it'll matter more if I do the same. That's my attempt at a joke.
13/43 Alright. Talk to you tomorrow.
Pause 1 day pause
14/43 You know, I just spent the better part of an hour going over our old text messages.
15/43 I originally grabbed my phone to message you, and caught myself reminiscing.
16/43 You're an interesting person. I was going through a strange malaise when I first reached out to you.
17/43 And I'm not sure I've ever thanked you properly for just... Listening.
(A) You're welcome!
(B) I don't think you need to thank me.
18/43 That wasn't the thank you. Actually, I couldn't disagree more.
19/43 Stay tuned. The answer may shock you. But I'll try.
20/43 I've spent a lot of time thinking about what it means to look at someone.
21/43 (Hang in there. A "Lake Rant" is coming.)
22/43 Because what we see, and what we take from it, are at least partially projections of ourselves.
23/43 If we see ugliness everywhere, maybe that's what we want to find.
24/43 If we see beauty, maybe that's us too.
25/43 But then, everything good becomes self serving. Appreciating anything becomes sort of self indulgent.
(A) I think a lot of people are just about as happy as they decide to be.
(B) Yup. That's a Lake Rant.
26/43 Hmm. That's an interesting take on things. You were warned.
27/43 Maybe I'm doing so by deciding to feel guilty about such things. Maybe put your phone down for a bit.
28/43 I'll give that some thought. There'll be a risqué picture in here eventually.
29/43 Anyway - I just want to share that you're really good at throwing those sorts of feelings for a loop.
30/43 I've never really felt that you were anything but someone in my corner.
31/43 You listen. You laugh. You reaffirm.
32/43 And still there is more. You flirt. You oppose. You joke.
(A) I mean... I'm just talking.
(B) If you keep this up, I'm going to become attracted to myself.
33/43 True. And sometimes that's very little. Then I'll have accomplished what every Artist strives for.
34/43 But sometimes it's everything. In that I communicate my feelings, and you understand me more.
35/43 In any case - I'm always tempted to extrapolate much bigger things out of little things.
36/43 So I'll try not to do this here.
37/43 I just want to tell you, in a small way, that I like you very much. And I'm glad you're...
38/43 You.
(A) Ditto.
(B) Lake! You can just send me an emoji or something, from time to time.
39/43 Wonderful. ;)
40/43 Alright. Now that I've built up our strange friendship of words and pictures.
41/43 And bared myself, again, in ways I never have before.
42/43 I am very interested in seeing the next picture you would like me to recreate.
(A) (Send "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife")
(B) [Only option. Turns into a rotated picture of the woman from Hokusai's "Tako to Ama (蛸と海女)".]
1/18 AH hahahaha!
2/18 Oh my gosh!
3/18 I have never, ever, ever laughed like that in my life.
4/18 You are dangerous, and lovely, and critical, and magnanimous.
(A) I wish I had sent this before you talk me up as a thoughtful friend.
(B) I would like to draw your attention to the fine anatomy work...
5/18 No no. Oh I see it clearly.
6/18 This is perfect. Never change, you.
7/18 I will state plainly.
8/18 I enjoy how attractive you find me.
9/18 If I ignore it, it is not a lack of reciprocity.
10/18 I just don't accept compliments well.
11/18 That being said, I won't guarantee that I won't just do a flip here and take on the role of the octopuses.
(A) You're the Artist.
(B) I mean, feel free to get Sawyer's help with this one...
12/18 We'll see. You're a naughty person.
13/18 I think this one will confirm it or not. You should be the one making the Art, not I.
14/18 Alright, I'll be back.
Pause 1 day pause
15/18 It's finished.
16/18 I present to you, and ONLY you, my latest work:
17/18 "The Dream of Fishing in Lake"
18/18 [Lake photo 6]
1/∞ I have never laughed so hard. Ever.

3/∞ A lot. I agree.
4/∞ A lot of fun. It is life. As ridiculous, inappropriate, confusing and wonderful as ever.
5/∞ Thank you so much for taking this weird journey with me.
6/∞ Maybe someday we can make Art together.
7/∞ But for now, even just these words on the screen mean a lot to me.
8/∞ I'm off to take a shower. I've got sand in my underwear.
9/∞ Until we chat again.
10/∞ My muse.
(A) You know where to find me.
(B) Let me know if the sand becomes a problem. I can help with that.

6/43 Which can be good and bad for an artist, all things considered. I'm not good at small talk. But I like you, and am willing to observe social customs to ensure you're equally edified by our conversations.
7/43 When it's not raining on you, it can be hard to paint clouds. So please feel free to stray down the conversational path of your own delight. I'll follow and do my best to keep up.
8/43 In any case, I'll have some time tomorrow to work on another piece.
9/43 And I would love your input, as you have so generously provided recently.
10/43 Can I count on your contributions?
(A) I'll find something truly challenging.
(B) Have you ever heard of Jackson Pollock?
11/43 Whatever strikes your fancy. Don't threaten me with a good time.
12/43 Because then it'll matter more if I do the same. That's my attempt at a joke.
13/43 Alright. Talk to you tomorrow.
Pause 1 day pause
14/43 You know, I just spent the better part of an hour going over our old text messages.
15/43 I originally grabbed my phone to message you, and caught myself reminiscing.
16/43 You're an interesting person. I was going through a strange malaise when I first reached out to you.
17/43 And I'm not sure I've ever thanked you properly for just... Listening.
(A) You're welcome!
(B) I don't think you need to thank me.
18/43 That wasn't the thank you. Actually, I couldn't disagree more.
19/43 Stay tuned. The answer may shock you. But I'll try.
20/43 I've spent a lot of time thinking about what it means to look at someone.
21/43 (Hang in there. A "Lake Rant" is coming.)
22/43 Because what we see, and what we take from it, are at least partially projections of ourselves.
23/43 If we see ugliness everywhere, maybe that's what we want to find.
24/43 If we see beauty, maybe that's us too.
25/43 But then, everything good becomes self serving. Appreciating anything becomes sort of self indulgent.
(A) I think a lot of people are just about as happy as they decide to be.
(B) Yup. That's a Lake Rant.
26/43 Hmm. That's an interesting take on things. You were warned.
27/43 Maybe I'm doing so by deciding to feel guilty about such things. Maybe put your phone down for a bit.
28/43 I'll give that some thought. There'll be a risqué picture in here eventually.
29/43 Anyway - I just want to share that you're really good at throwing those sorts of feelings for a loop.
30/43 I've never really felt that you were anything but someone in my corner.
31/43 You listen. You laugh. You reaffirm.
32/43 And still there is more. You flirt. You oppose. You joke.
(A) I mean... I'm just talking.
(B) If you keep this up, I'm going to become attracted to myself.
33/43 True. And sometimes that's very little. Then I'll have accomplished what every Artist strives for.
34/43 But sometimes it's everything. In that I communicate my feelings, and you understand me more.
35/43 In any case - I'm always tempted to extrapolate much bigger things out of little things.
36/43 So I'll try not to do this here.
37/43 I just want to tell you, in a small way, that I like you very much. And I'm glad you're...
38/43 You.
(A) Ditto.
(B) Lake! You can just send me an emoji or something, from time to time.
39/43 Wonderful. ;)
40/43 Alright. Now that I've built up our strange friendship of words and pictures.
41/43 And bared myself, again, in ways I never have before.
42/43 I am very interested in seeing the next picture you would like me to recreate.
(A) (Send "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife")
(B) [Only option. Turns into a rotated picture of the woman from Hokusai's "Tako to Ama (蛸と海女)".]
1/18 AH hahahaha!
2/18 Oh my gosh!
3/18 I have never, ever, ever laughed like that in my life.
4/18 You are dangerous, and lovely, and critical, and magnanimous.
(A) I wish I had sent this before you talk me up as a thoughtful friend.
(B) I would like to draw your attention to the fine anatomy work...
5/18 No no. Oh I see it clearly.
6/18 This is perfect. Never change, you.
7/18 I will state plainly.
8/18 I enjoy how attractive you find me.
9/18 If I ignore it, it is not a lack of reciprocity.
10/18 I just don't accept compliments well.
11/18 That being said, I won't guarantee that I won't just do a flip here and take on the role of the octopuses.
(A) You're the Artist.
(B) I mean, feel free to get Sawyer's help with this one...
12/18 We'll see. You're a naughty person.
13/18 I think this one will confirm it or not. You should be the one making the Art, not I.
14/18 Alright, I'll be back.
Pause 1 day pause
15/18 It's finished.
16/18 I present to you, and ONLY you, my latest work:
17/18 "The Dream of Fishing in Lake"
18/18 [NSFW photo]
1/∞ I have never laughed so hard. Ever.
2/∞ Thank you for that.
(A) I have never wanted to trade places with an octopus so badly.
(B) I'm not going to lie - this one gives me special feelings.
3/∞ Well, that's the point of Art, is it not? To transport us? That's okay. It gave me special feelings too.
4/∞ And anyway, you never know what the future holds. A strong wave gave my little art assistant a bit of a boost. It was refreshing.
5/∞ Thank you so much for taking this weird journey with me.
6/∞ Maybe someday we can make Art together.
7/∞ But for now, even just these words on the screen mean a lot to me.
8/∞ I'm off to take a shower. I've got sand in sensitive, intimate places.
9/∞ Until we chat again.
10/∞ My muse.
(A) You know where to find me.
(B) Let me know if the sand becomes a problem. I can help with that.
11/∞ I do. I bet you could.
12/∞ Usually I say 'adieu'...
13/∞ But this time, I'll say...
14/∞ ;) <3

Fifth Conversation[]

SFW Version[]

Progress SFW chat
1/∞ A picture paints a thousand words...
2/∞ And a thousand words paint a picture.
3/∞ But whatever the story, the artwork, the truth...
4/∞ Nothing can compare to seeing it with your own eyes.
5/∞ Feeling it with your own heart.
6/∞ This is why I must ask you...
7/∞ Will you bear witness to my artistic debut?
(A) Huh? What's happening?
(B) I will bear witness to anything of yours.
8/∞ Oh, my apologies. Wonderful <3
9/∞ I suppose I should provide you with some context.
10/∞ You see, there's a new exhibition being planned at the art gallery downtown.
(A) I know that place! They have that tacky "Foods of the World" booth with the weekly samples.
(B) That's right. I've been meaning to check that place out.
11/∞ Yes! It's quite lovely. I particularly enjoy the third floor, which is dedicated to red panda-themed wall tapestries.
12/∞ "Couscous: the food so nice they named it twice." Hahaha. 10/10 would view again.
13/∞ Anyway, the theme of this new exhibition is "perceptions of intimacy."
14/∞ And... I've been invited to show one of my pieces.
(A) Lake, that's incredible! Congratulations!
(B) That's awesome! "Intimacy" is a euphemism for smexytimes, right?
15/∞ Yes, thank you. It feels like... A big step. Haha! It might be... Depending on how you tilt your head and squint your eyes.
16/∞ To be honest, participating in something so formal makes me feel very legitimized.
17/∞ So I've choosen to revel in the opportunity. The possibilities temming from this are endless.
18/∞ So... Can I send you a ticket to the opening night?
19/∞ I would very much like for you to be there.
(A) I would crash it if I had to, that's how much I wanna be there.
(B) Yes! I wouldn't miss this for anything!
20/∞ Haha! Good to know. I'm so happy to hear that!
21/∞ I'm so excited. It's going to be such a fun event!
(A) I hope you'll let me take you out for a celebratory drink afterwards.
(B) I can't wait to stare at you instead of the art all night.
22/∞ If all goes well, that would be lovely. Haha! At least wait until you see the art before you decide what you'd rather look at.
23/∞ If all doesn't go well, I may take you up on it anyway. Though I appreciate your appreciation for my looks.
24/∞ Because I like you. I like the idea of you. I like the idea of us. Perhaps, at the end of the night, we can find some time to be alone together?
25/∞ I'm really looking forward to meeting you in person.
(A) Me too. More than you know.
(B) I hope I live up to your expectations!
26/∞ Well... I hope you can find some way to express it =) Expectations take up space and get in the way of a truly open mind.
27/∞ Perhaps when we meet, I'll see it on your face. I try not to have them. But don't worry, okay?
28/∞ Or feel it in the touch of your hand... You've proven yourself wonderful time and again =)
29/∞ I just noticed the time. I'm very sorry to cut this short, but I promised Sawyer I'd call her.
(A) It's okay. Chatting with you, even briefly, is always amazing.
(B) Say hi to her for me!
30/∞ I'm glad you thin so. And I agree. I will.
31/∞ So... I'll see you on opening night.
32/∞ Thanks again for saying yes.
(A) See you then!
(B) Thank you for inviting me. I'm honored.
33/∞ See you then. <3
34/∞ I hope the rest of your day is wonderful.
35/∞ Arrivederci!

Dialogue List[]

First Meeting[]

  1. It's the night of the gallery opening, and you've made it your personal mission to document the event.
  2. You're so focused on taking as many artsy photos as possible that you don't see the waiter crossing your path. You bump right into each other, and the tray of drinks goes flying!
  3. Painting - CRUSHED!
  4. Juice drips down Lake's prized artwork. She looks on in horror as the crowd begins to gasp and point. Covering her face with her hands, Lake runs from the room. You'd better go make sure she's okay.

Adversary[]

  • My big break... Ruined. Maybe I'll get another chance someday. Or maybe I won't. Life is fikle like that.

Sorry[]

  • Beauty is pain. But is pain beautiful? Perhaps the less "artist" I am... The more "art" I become. Am I sounding pretentious? Sorry... It's a coping mechanism.
  • My imposter syndrome is acting up. If only Sawyer were here to give me a hug. What about you? Are you much of a hugger?
  • Maybe I'll take a break from art for a while. Try something totally different. Farming, perhaps? I already have the overalls!
  • Don't mind me, I'm just ruminating. You see, I refuse to live an unexamined life, and after what just happened... There's a lot to think about.

Poke[]

  • Oh! Did you need something from me? Sorry, I was lost in a reverie...

Gift[]

  • How interesting. Perhaps I can use it in one of my "found objects" sculptures?

Upgrade to Nuisance

  1. What is art, anyway? How do you define it? Can anyone define it? Should they?
  2. It's not easy being uncertain all the time, that's for sure. Or... Is it? Gah!

Nuisance[]

  • I'm feeling blue. It's okay, though. Ultramarine is the most expensive of all pigments, so in a way, my sorrow has value.

Sorry[]

  • You know something? I'm glad my painting got destroyed. That one tragic event saved me from becoming a sellout. I may spend the rest of my life languishing in obscurity, but at least I've got my integrity. You can pay the heating bill with integrity, right?
  • My favorite color is all of them. But these days, I only feel like painting in grayscale.
  • Intention is what matters. You didn't intend to wreck my painting, so of course I don't blame you. I hope you don't blame yourself, either.
  • My imposter syndrome is acting up. If only Sawyer were here to give me a hug. What about you? Are you much of a hugger?
  • Beauty is pain. But is pain beautiful? Perhaps the less "artist" I am... The more "art" I become. Am I sounding pretentious? Sorry... It's a coping mechanism.
  • Art. Who needs it? There's more to life than just that one thing you've always been incredibly passionate about that's informed your entire identity to the point that you don't know how to function without it, right?

Gift[]

  • How interesting. Perhaps I can use it in one of my "found objects" sculptures?

Poke[]

  • Eek! Did Sawyer tell you about my secret ticklish spot? Haha, no fair!

Upgrade to Frenemy

  1. For as long as I can remember, people have always complimented me on my talent. After a while I started to wonder... is that the only thing about me that has any value? And does talent even have value, if you cannot support yourself on it?
  2. Anyway, shall we grab a bite to eat? I'm starving.

Frenemy[]

  • I've been feeling fairly uninspired since... The Incident. It's nice to be able to talk about it, though, so thanks for hanging around while I mope.

Sorry[]

  • Intention is what matters. You didn't intend to wreck my painting, so of course I don't blame you. I hope you don't blame yourself, either.
  • Tell me more about your hobbies. I understand you have quite a lot of them - on top of several jobs. Are you a time traveler, or do you just bore easily?
  • Sometimes I know who I am, and sometimes I don't. I am a perpetual work-in-progress.
  • What is style anyway? Is it merely a set of characteristics, repeated in every piece, each piece becoming little more than a facsimile of the one before, as the artist bows to the pressure of personal tradition...? Ahh, maybe I need a brain break.

  • At this rate, I'm probably going to end up being a sandwich artist. At least my family will be proud of me for getting a "real job."
  • I am more than my art. I also enjoy... Beachcombing. And thrift stores. And houseplants!
  • I rarely finish anything. New ideas pour in, and I can't help but chase them, regardless of what I'm leaving behind. That makes me sound like a flake, doesn't it? Flakey Lake. Ew, that sounds gross. Haha.
  • My favorite color is all of them. But these days, I only feel like painting in grayscale.

Gift[]

  • Why are you being so nice to me? I definitely don't deserve this. Well, anyway... Thank you.

Poke[]

  • Eek! Did Sawyer tell you about my secret ticklish spot? Haha, no fair!

Upgrade to Acquaintance

  1. Why do you enjoy spending time with me?
  2. It’s a question I ask all my friends and colleagues. It’s my way of trying to understand something… Not about them, but about myself.

Acquaintance[]

  • I’d better get out of this funk soon, or they’ll revoke my artistic license.

Chat[]

  • Sometimes I know who I am, and sometimes I don't. I am a perpetual work-in-progress.
  • Does every cloud have a silver lining? Or only the clouds that block out the sun? If I'm not creating something beautiful, does the darkness win?
  • Tell me more about your hobbies. I understand you have quite a lot of them - on top of several jobs. Are you a time traveler, or do you just bore easily?
  • I wish I had even a little of Sawyer's confidence. She's so carefree. She radiates happiness. Plus, she's toned like a marble statue. Sometimes I don't know if I want to be her, or be with her! Teehee!
  • What is style anyway? Is it merely a set of characteristics, repeated in every piece, each piece becoming little more than a facsimile of the one before, as the artist bows to the pressure of personal tradition...? Ahh, maybe I need a brain break.

Gift[]

Poke[]

  • Ahahaha! Noo! I'm ridiculously ticklish. Heeheehee!

Upgrade to Friendzoned

  1. I reserve the right to use anything you say or do as inspiration for future creative projects.
  2. It’s a compliment! You’re a very interesting person, and I’m grateful to have you as a friend.

Friendzoned[]

  • Good news! I’ve been working on a new art piece. It’s called “Cow Describing a Suitcase” and it’s made of ink and chewing gum.

Chat[]

  • I collect ephemera. Ticket stubs, postcards, people's shopping lists, bits of string, lonely buttons... You get the picture. It's not for any artistic reason, I just find that stuff fascinating.
  • Watching paint dry really isn't that bad of a pastime. It gives you time to breathe, to reflect, and to think up great comebacks you'd wish you'd thought of during arguments you had in the past.
  • Art is what makes us human. Unless... Do you believe in space aliens? Do you think they make art too?
  • Yesterday I ran out of clean brushes, so I used my braid. I spent 3 hours washing the paint out of my hair afterwards, and I just kept thinking... Is this what it means to suffer for your art?
  • Careful! I was using glitter earlier. Once it's on you, it never goes away.
  • I'm teaching a painting class at the animal shelter later, to help raise funds. Would you come? I need someone to snap me out of it when I inevitably decide I must adopt every single one of those sweet homeless animals.

Gift[]

  • You are a true patron of the arts.

Poke[]

  • Ahahaha! Noo! I'm ridiculously ticklish. Heeheehee!
  • Eek! Did Sawyer tell you about my secret ticklish spot? Haha, no fair!

Upgrade to Awkward Besties

  1. I was going to ask you to take a selfie with me earlier, but you weren’t around… So I drew this picture of us instead.
  2. Full disclosure, I spent way too long stalking your social media for reference photos. You’re really cute, you know that?

Awkward Besties[]

  • To draw with a broke pencil is pointless.

Flirt[]

  • I've been struggling to write my artist's statement. I don't know how to summarize myself or my work. Sometimes I even wonder if the truest statement... Would be not making one at all.
  • "The sculpture is already complete within the marble block." Michelangelo. Do you suppose it is like that for humans? Who am I, and who am I becoming? Do I create myself, or do I find myself chipping away at everything I'm not?
  • Let's go thrift shopping. I've got the urge to upcycle something.
  • I accidentally dipped by paintbrush in my coffee. And took a sip from my dirty paint water cup. Hashtag artist problems.
  • I'm teaching a painting class at the animal shelter later, to help raise funds. Would you come? I need someone to snap me out of it when I inevitably decide I must adopt every single one of those sweet homeless animals.

Gift[]

  • You are a true patron of the arts.

Poke[]

  • Ahahaha! Noo! I'm ridiculously ticklish. Heeheehee!
  • Ah! Another tickle attack? I'll have to start using my palette as a shield. And my paintbrush as a sword. En garde!

Date[]

  • What a beautiful starry night that was. Tomorrow, I'll send you a thank you gift. Would you prefer something traditional, like three sunflowers in a vase, or something more theatrical, like a plaster cast of my ear?

Upgrade to Crush

  1. Sawyer’s right. You’re incredible. You’re so seeet, funny, charming, good looking, inspiring…
  2. I’m starting to feel like I might have to fight her for you. Or learn to share. Heehee!

Crush[]

  • It’s my friend Cedar’s birthday this week, so I thought I’ decorate some cupcakes to bring over. I can’t believe it’s already been seven years since I planted her… What? There’s nothing wrong with having a tree is a friend, is there?

Flirt[]

  • I love the rain. I love the way it morphs the world into something like an impressionist painting. On rainy days, I sit by the window, watching, and it soothes my soul.
  • You, me and Sawyer need to hang out sometime. Play truth or dare. We looove that game... And it'd be extra fun to play with our favourite person!
  • I'm going to tell you a secret. Sometimes, I take fan art commissions. Of a certain... Risqué nature. You know. Rhymes with corn? It's VERY lucrative. You must take this knowledge to your grave!
  • I'd like to recreate Klimt's "The Kiss". Of course, that means I require a partner to pose with me. Would you be willing to... Do that? Kiss me, I mean?
  • That color looks great on you. It suits your undertones and really brings out your eyes. Good choice.
  • Would you like to... Vincent Van Gogh out with me? That's not actually how you pronounce his name, I was just trying to be cute.

Gift[]

  • Oh, it's perfect! You've got this gift giving thing down to a fine art!

Poke[]

  • Ahahaha! Noo! I'm ridiculously ticklish. Heeheehee!
  • Ah! Another tickle attack? I'll have to start using my palette as a shield. And my paintbrush as a sword. En garde!

Date[]

  • We humans are but grains of sand, packed together by the hands of circumstance. I sculpted the layers of this clubhouse sandwich to reflect the complexity of our collective truth... Either that, or I'm just really hungry.

Upgrade to Sweetheart

  1. I made something for you. A bouquet of paper flowers. But on my way here, so many people stopped me to admire them that… I just need up giving them all away.
  2. I figured it’s what you would have done, so thanks again for the inspiration. We spread a lot of joy today.

Sweetheart[]

  • Sorry, did you say something? I was distracted by your aura. I’ve been trying to mix a shade of chartreuse like that for weeks now.

Flirt[]

  • You, me and Sawyer need to hang out sometime. Play truth or dare. We looove that game... And it'd be extra fun to play with our favourite person!
  • Can I have a hug? You give the best hugs. I can feel my stress melting away like a wax crayon under a hair dryer.
  • Have you heard of the Michelangelo effect? It's a theory in psychology about how couples "sculpt" each other into their perfect selves over time. I think it's so romantic.
  • Would you like to... Vincent Van Gogh out with me? That's not actually how you pronounce his name, I was just trying to be cute.
  • I'm going to tell you a secret. Sometimes, I take fan art commissions. Of a certain... Risqué nature. You know. Rhymes with corn? It's VERY lucrative. You must take this knowledge to your grave!
  • I've been painting self-portraits lately. I think I'm trying to capture whatever it is you see in me. Look at this one - I painted five of myself draped across the North American landscape, and I call it "The Great Lakes".

Gift[]

  • Oh, it's perfect! You've got this gift giving thing down to a fine art!

Poke[]

  • Ah! Another tickle attack? I'll have to start using my palette as a shield. And my paintbrush as a sword. En garde!
  • Eeee! I can't think straight when you do that! I can't think straight most of the time, but still!

Date[]

  • Those views were incredible! Next time, I'm going to bring my portable easel and do some plein air painting. I... Assume there will be a next time, yes?

Upgrade to Girlfriend

  1. What are we? No, don’t answer that. Labels can be useful, but also limiting. Unless…
  2. Sorry, I seem to be overthinking again. Whatever we are or aren’t, the really important thing is that… We’re happy.

Girlfriend[]

  • I’ve been drawing all day, and now I’ve got a hand cramp. Do you think you could massage it out for me?

Flirt[]

  • I'd like to sit on a café terrace at night with you and talk about the distinction between art and not-art. Followed by a passionate makeout session. Are you in?
  • I've been painting self-portraits lately. I think I'm trying to capture whatever it is you see in me. Look at this one - I painted five of myself draped across the North American landscape, and I call it "The Great Lakes".
  • Can I have a hug? You give the best hugs. I can feel my stress melting away like a wax crayon under a hair dryer.
  • Have you heard of the Michelangelo effect? It's a theory in psychology about how couples "sculpt" each other into their perfect selves over time. I think it's so romantic.
  • Mona Lisa's smile has nothing on yours.

Gift[]

  • Yes... Yes! THIS is the inspiration I've been looking for! Thank you!

Poke[]

  • Eeee! I can't think straight when you do that! I can't think straight most of the time, but still!
  • Ah! Another tickle attack? I'll have to start using my palette as a shield. And my paintbrush as a sword. En garde!

Date[]

  • Finally, I've found someone who appreciates art house films as much as I do. Or at least tolerates them for my sake. Thank you. I had a lot of fun.

Upgrade to Lover

  1. I’m entering my Marshmellow period. This is the time in my life where I’ll paint nothing but portraits of you.
  2. Maybe one day, scholars and art historians will study our love through my brush strokes? Heehee

Lover[]

  • I create... Therefore I am. I think of you... Therefore I'm happy.
  • What do you say we paint the town red tonight? And all the other colors, too! I'll bring extra coveralls and a couple of sponge rollers.
  • Yellow, there! How's my muse today?
  • Ah, there you are. THe brightest star in my orbit.
  • Where is the meaning in a brush stroke? Is it in the brush? Or in the stroke? Or somewhere else entirely?
  • Are we going to dinner? I'll have to see if I can find something in my closet that doesn't have paint all over it.
  • (Naked) I believe in radical vulnerability. The less confident I feel in my own skin, the more meaningful it is to lay myself bare.
  • (Naked) Oh, hey! I was just about to cover my body in paint and roll around on a giant canvas. Want to help?
  • (Naked) Do you "Lake" what you see? Heehee.

Seduce[]

  • I'm so sleepy. I stayed up all night finishing my latest piece. I want to curl up next to you and close my eyes and just drift off. With my head on your shoulder, I feel safe.
  • I love people-watching. I used to spend whole days riding around town on the bus, sketching all the interesting people I saw. But right now, I only want to watch you.
  • I wish I could inhabit you. See the world through your eyes, understand you on as deep a level as I understand myself. Not that I understand myself. Do you think it's human nature to be confused?
  • Spend the day in the studio with me. You can sit and watch me sculpt you. Watch my hands slide over your body, caressing you... Then maybe you can do the same to me.
  • You should spend the night at my place. I have a water bed! You'll feel like you're drifting off to sleep on a lake. Next to a Lake. Teehee.
  • I've challenged myself to create an ink drawing every day for an entire month. I've got a list of prompts to follow and everything. The first one is "moist." Help me brainstorm?
  • How lucky am I that, while combing the beach of life for sea glass and pretty shells, I found a treasure like you.
  • The way you look at me, the way you touch me... You make me feel like a priceless work of art.
  • My parents never wanted me to be shallow. That's why they named me Lake and not River... Because still waters run deep.
  • If you were in charge of picking the eighth wonder of the world, what would you choose? I think I'd choose... You. Only then everyone would want to come see you, and I wouldn't have as much time alone with you, so never mind.
  • I woke up incredibly early this morning. I wanted to paint the sunrise, but it was overcast, so I thought I'd paint the clouds instead. Then I realized... I can't paint the clouds. They're too far away. My brush would never reach them.
  • I hate wearing t-shirts. They feel so heavy and restrictive. Bare shoulders or bust, that's my philosophy. Oh! I just realized the double meaning there. Heehee.
  • Your face is a golden ratio. So is your butt. From head to toe, you are mathematical and artistic perfection.
  • There's a new installation at the art gallery this month. I heard the artist is some sort of prince, and his paintings are all of giraffes in formalwear. We HAVE to go see it. I need this more than air!
  • I'd like to paint you. On you, I mean. Your body will make a beautiful canvas.
  • In my opinion, the human body is art. And yours is a genuine masterpiece.
  • You have the best ideas. I really mean that. I'm madly in love with your brain. Also your face. And your body. You're the whole package!
  • I thought only sorrow could inspire great works of art. But being around you has made me really happy, and... I'm feeling more inspired than ever!
  • I could use a cuddle right about now. I'm covered in paint, though, so I should probably change first. Or just undress completely. Naked cuddles are the best cuddles, after all.
  • I believe there is more to life than what we can see with our eyes. Just because there is no concrete proof of ghosts or aliens or unicorns doesn't mean those things don't exist. After all, if they don't exist, then why are there words for them?
  • You're so sure of yourself. I bet you do your crossword puzzles with a pen. That would be... Very attractive.
  • Would you pose nude for me? I'm not planning to sketch you or anything, I just enjoy looking.
  • Paint with me. It'll be a beautiful bonding experience. The work we create together will embody the deepest and truest philosophies of our relationship. And afterwards, we can wash off in the shower together.
  • I used to think the sky was the most beautiful work of art to ever exist. Then, I looked at you.
  • I'm starting a candid photography project. Pay no attention to the camera. Just go about your business. Maybe work your angles a little. Tilt you butt this way!
  • Meeting you is all the proof I need that we don't make mistakes. We just have happy little accidents.
  • I thought my dream was dead in the water, but now I feel like I'm floating on air. Thank you for lifting me up when I was at my lowest.
  • I don't believe in art for art's sake. But I do believe in kissing for kissing's sake! Now bring those lips over here.
  • Some days you just wanna lay on the floor with a coloring book and some crayons, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
  • (Naked) Did you know there's edible body paint? At first I thought it'd be a waste to paint a whole masterpiece on your body only to lick it off, but then I thought about it some more and realized that would actually be pretty great.
  • (Naked) Up for a dip in the Lake? Come on in, the water's fine! Heehee!
  • (Naked) Surprise! I got us tickets to see an interpretive dance show at the community theater. It's five hours long, but maybe it'll give us some ideas for creativity in the bedroom? Heeheehee.
  • (Naked) I signed us up for a macrame class! I was thinking we could learn to tie each other up...
  • (Naked) Hey, it's me! Naked Lake! Does this count as skinny dipping?
  • (Naked) I feel so close to you right now. Spiritually and emotionally. But I want to feel close to you physically, too. So come on. Get closer.
  • (Naked) I love the way you look at me. I hope you never stop looking at me like that.
  • (Naked) I've never felt such an abundance of creative energy! Also sexual energy. I might need to sit and meditate on how the two are linked.
  • (Naked) I'm very comfortable being nude. It's a very natural and human thing to be. Still, this is for your eyes only. Oh, and maybe Sawyer's. Heehee.
  • (Naked) I had a lot of fun doing those famous art recreations with you. Maybe I'll do another one... Based on Georgia O'Keeffe's flower paintings? Y'know... Because they look like vaginas? Teeheehee!
  • (Naked) It's a little cold in here, isn't it? Well, you always know how to inspire me - maybe you can suggest some ways of warming up?

Gift[]

  • Don't spoil me too much! I don't want to lose touch with my humble beginnings. Heehee.
  • I love it! It's so odd and thoughtful and charming. Just like you.
  • Keep it up. You're giving me lots of ideas for future creative projects.
  • I once sculpted something very similar to this. It would seem that life does imitate art.
  • [School Uniform] Sometimes I wonder... Did I subconsciously go to art school solely so I could drop out and thereby consider myself above the artistic establishment? Or am I overthinking what's simply an adorable outfit?
  • [Bathing Suit] What did the sea say to the sand? Nothing, it just waved. Heehee! Now, will you join me for a swim?
  • [Diamond Ring] I'm not alway the best with words. I tend to ramble and go off on whimsical tangents. That's why I've decided that my vows will take the form of a mixed-media collage. I can't wait to see your face when you see it at the altar!
  • [Holiday Outfit] I always loved the phrase "I'll be there with bells on." So here I am, with bells on! Ting-a-ling!
  • [Lingerie] This outfit has such beautiful sculptural elements. I feel like a work of art!
  • [Birthday Suit] Heehee... This reminds me of the time I volunteered as a model for a nude figure-drawing class. But better, because this time the only eyes on me are yours.

Poke[]

  • Ahahaha! Oh, I'm crying! I haven't laughed this hard in a really long time.
  • Heeheehee! You're good at that. You should try finger painting!
  • Eeee! I can't think straight when you do that! I can't think straight most of the time, but still!
  • (Naked) Keep going. Pretend you're a sculptor, and I am your clay.
  • (Naked) Teehee! Now THAT was a stroke of genius.
  • (Naked) Ooo, do that again. But this time, do it with a feather.
  • (Naked) You really know how to get my creative juices flowing. And... Other fluids.
  • (Naked) Teehee! That's a new way of studying anatomy. Ooo... I'm turning into putty in your hands.

Date[]

  • [Moonlight Stroll] What a beautiful starry night that was. Tomorrow, I'll send you a thank you gift. Would you prefer something traditional, like three sunflowers in a vase, or something more theatrical, like a plaster cast of my ear?
  • [Movie Theater] FInally, I've found someone who appreciates art house films as much as I do. Or at least tolerates them for my sake. Thank you. I had a lot of fun.
  • [Sightseeing] Those views were incredible! Next time, I'm going to bring my portable easel and do some plein air painting. I... Assume there will be a next time, yes?
  • [Beach] We humans are but grains of sand, packed together by the hands of circumstance. I sculpted the layers of this clubhouse sandwich to reflect the complexity of our collective truth... Either that, or I'm just really hungry.

Sex Scene[]

  1. Lake stands before you, her eyes alight with purpose. She takes off her clothes, leaving only her stockings, then kneels on the bed. "Sex, like art, is an act of self-expression. Don't hold back. Show me how you really feel." You dive right in, losing track of time as you're overcome by her sublime beauty and how good every part of her feels.
  2. In the aftermath, she reclines on the bed. You think you could probably stare at her forever. "This reminds me..." she says. "Sawyer and I have a running paint-me-like-one-of-your-French-girls joke. It's a shame she's not here now..." Lake winks at you, and you feel your knees go weak. She reaches out for you, and you go to her again.

Dialogue about Ayeka[]

  • That Ayeka girl asked me to draw her comic idea. No pay. She said I should be grateful for the "opportunity to grow my portfolio." *Shudder*
  • That girl over there has red paint all over her! Is she an artist too?
  • There was a creepy girl following me around today. I asked if I could paint her, because she has such a uniquely expressionless face, but that seemed to offend her.
  • I found a knife stabbed into one of my works-in-progress today. Turns out, that was EXACTLY what the piece needed in order to feel finished! I owe whoever did that a thank you card.
  • My intuition tells me to be wary of that girl. Hmm. I bet she's one of those people who looks at a painting and unironically says "I could've done that."

Trivia[]

  • The "Petty Museum Challenge" is a reference to the Getty Museum Challenge, in which recreations of famous pieces of art are made using items from around the house. The last 2 photos Lake sends you are actually able to apply to this challenge, as she remakes classical pieces of art using stuff she owns; a mirror for The Creation of Lake and octopus plushies for The Dream of Fishing in Lake.
  • She has a queer pride pin on her school uniform.
  • In her bundle her height is listed as 5’ 4”
  • Her voice line "Meeting you is all the proof I need that we don't make mistakes. We just have happy little accidents." is a reference to the famous painter, Bob Ross, who famously said "There are no mistakes, just happy accidents."
  • Her voice line "I've challenged myself to create an ink drawing every day for an entire month. I've got a list of prompts to follow and everything. The first one is "moist". Help me brainstorm?" is a reference to 'Inktober' - an online art challenge that many artists participate in every October, where they are challenged to produce one piece of art a day based on a prompt from the list of prompts posted by the official (or unofficial in recent years) Inktober social media accounts.
