This was such a hilarious chapter! You did an excellent job writing it. Quick question: Is Rosaline bulimic? I'm just curious, as she claims to not be able to eat solids or even drink water. I wonder if she suffers from a rare disorder? Good luck with your future stories!

I finished reading through Scenes II and III today (I have been busy doing other stuff related to my schedule, as my electronic times are thirty minutes to one hour), and I thought to myself, "This is perfect for Pride Month!" I am bisexual myself and don't mind reading about or seeing people in the LGBTQ community. I would love to continue developing my characters and perhaps make at least one of them gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender (maybe bring back my character Stephanie).

Beautifully written. You appear to be excellent at writing plays; I'm impressed! I loved the stereotypical Chinese-American words, like "Wah!" and the parts of the story where Romaine's mother doesn't know what to say due to speaking English as a second language. I am accustomed to that, as I have read some of Amy Tan's novels (where that theme is used frequently). Best of luck in your future stories!

Still going very g-well I'll just say written with punch. It's actually quite balanced, I think, in terms of emotion and tone. That might not sound like much, but it's less common than you think, particularly here. A good/engaging story is one that has full control over its tone.
As for characters so far,
I have a very vivd picture of everybody. Well, every major character anyway. Do you happen to use picture reference or imagine celebrity likenesses for your characters?
P.S.-I don't want to bring up any stereotypes about Asians being nightmarish parents, but I did it just now, so...whatever. I don't believe most of them anymore. I can think on reasons why it happens and why it doesn't, now that I'm significantly more detached. Just people...flawed, biased, but occasionally trying to do right...I hope.
Here's to hoping you show this girl mercy. Or at least more mercy than her mum.

I love the idea of formatting it as a play it's so cool! Another nice thing about plays is you can use music to set the scene. Like the polka in a street car named desire that rises with Blanches madness. You could do something similar with the mother's anger although the heartbeats are already really good!

The tension was held immediately and throughout the scene. It was light a tight drum that just kept getting tighter. The scene was full of emotion, both verbal and nonverbal. The use of props in the scene was extremely effective and kept your attention. It was an amazing scene that foreshadowed greatness to follow.

It IS very indulgent, and the self-awareness you have sets that off and makes it enjoyable to me. Well in a certain sense of "enjoyed."
The subject matter goes too close to home. Especially the parents.
You write good, is what I mean to say.
Now I have to go sit and stare at a wall until I feel normal again.
