The Red String

A new move for Thirsty Sword Lesbians that represents a deep bond between characters.

The Red String, based on the Red Thread of Fate from East Asian culture, represents a bond between two people that is more than just Smitten. The players involved can decide if this connection was always there, waiting to be discovered, or if it was forged through mutual growth and affection. However this connection looks is ultimately up to you, but you can use this optional move to represent the power of that bond.
