“Nicole”

In the midst of her first year of college, protagonist Nicole gets swept up in the mystery revolving around the disappearances of three girls from her school.

They had panels that attracted fans of many different fanbases and interests - Olivia Mears of Avant-Geek, a past Player Theory interviewee, hosted one of the panels.
