Everything Mystic Messenger players need to romance V, the first route available in Another Story mode.
Our Mystic Messenger guide now boasts a full and complete set of resources pertaining to V, the enigmatic, sorrowful photographer.
Another Story is set about a year before the events of Casual and Deep Story, but should be played last. It provides more background information on the game's meta-plot than any other route, and as such, this page may contain spoilers. We recommend you play through Zen, Yoosung, Jaehee, Jumin and 707's routes, then view every After Ending episode in the two Secret folders, before beginning Another Story. When you're ready, this page has everything you need to romance V in Another Story.
Rika's fiancee and a close childhood friend of Jumin, V is the official leader of RFA. His disconnect and long absences since Rika's departure have had a profound effect on the group, allowing them to drift apart a little and putting a halt to further organising activities. He is respected for his leadership and trusted deeply by all members except Yoosung, but his stubborn tendency to keep secrets and work alone can be alienating. V longs to open up, but has a hard time overcoming his defensive habits.
V is not a difficult catch, and although his story does pass through some heavy psychological territory, it's generally pretty easy to stick to the story path if you play nice with him, and not with Ray and the Saviour. Focus on being positive and forgiving and show trust and respect for privacy, and V will gradually open up to you. It's important to show kindness for Ray and the Saviour without siding with them, and to accept that V will come to you in his own time; he doesn't belong to you just yet.
You'll earn a teal heart is one of your answer has a strong effect on V, although as with the other characters this doesn't necessarily mean you've chosen an answer pertinent to a good ending. In general, the key to V's hearts and his Good End are as follows:
- Trust V and encourage others to do so
- Engage with and be kind to other members of RFA
- Take any opportunity to derail the conversation onto the topic of V
- Respect privacy, especially as regards V, Rika and 707
- Follow V's instructions
- Show concern for V and the RFA members
- Take things nice and slow with V
- Encourage V to be kind to himself
- Focus on V's health and wellbeing
- Don't talk about the RFA as AI and the Messenger as a game
- Don't say nice things about or flirt with Ray
- Don't question V and Rika's relationship or allow others to
- Don't get hostile and aggressive with V and the Saviour
- Don't push too hard for a relationship or behave posessively
- Don't encourage the RFA to take revenge and lash out at Ray and the Saviour
