Oops, missed these posts. D:

It's on that site but not in your post, angel; you missed it by like one line, heheh. The other half should be in one of the south rooms on a north wall.

My thoughts are that the girl is desperately trying to reach something that she perceives to be a friend and wants it desperately (Birdie) but others can see that it can cause her harm. When they're trying hard to convince her about it, she rejects them and sinks into paranoia, thinking that the others are trying to seperate her from "Birdie". She draws further and further away from reality, and draws up her own world where she can live with "Birdie", but the persuasion of the others traps her inside, causing her world to become a house with no exits. Trying hard to reach Birdie, she waters the plant, which represents all the efforts she tries to put in. The telephone calls were actually the others' attempts to reach Leah and pull her back to reality, but due to Leah's paranoid self she perceives their attempts as threats, like the threatening phone calls and fire. In the end, she finally reaches Birdie, but the "Birdie"'s harmful effects have finally taken place, harming (represented by Leah killing herself) her inside and destroying all the imaginations she has created, pulling her into oblivion.

So basically, to me it seems like a representation of a mental illness. ^^;

It's up to your intepretation who she kills - Birdie, herself, or she just shot downwards. :pewpewpew:

For me it was more like the others (who wanted her to kill Birdie) put her into the house with no exits. It was kind of when you have to choose from two bad options: being left in the creepy house of old memories driving you mad, or Birdie who is supposedly evil. Leah chose what she thought was the smaller bad, even if she knew she couldn't live with it. No one sane would want to live in a house like that, even if they surely will die otherwise. At least that's my opinion. ^^

Well for me , this game was a kind of thoughts releases ...

You play the game, which is really weird, and then you don't really understand what happened nor what is going on with all this and since there's just no actual story with it , i guess you could imagine that this game is all about the FreeBird which would bring some weird thoughts in your head lol

Maybe kind of an horror game with self-thoughts story.

Well, I know one thing for sure: I loved it because it can give free ways of thinking. I love things which let the reader/player/etc. to guess for him/herself. You can clearly see now that almost everyone thinks about TML differently about the meaning of it. It's really inspiring. :P (I'm thinking about fanfics again... way much inspiration O.o :D)

Seeing as how the bird was carrying her... killing the bird meant almost certain doom for herself as well.
This might hurt, it's not safe / But I know that I've gotta make a change / I don't care if I break,
At least I'll be feeling something

Changed my interpretation a little. Leah didn't kill herself, but her family members in a fit of paranoia and sees them as a threat to her own life and Birdy's. And birdy betrays Leah drops Leah onto the ground.

Then what was the gunshot? Was birdy shot or something?

Here's a little theory that has many things wrong to it. A bit of interpretation for TML and a little theory for DYRML
Spoiler: show
Since the house in DYRML is similar to Leah's house, I believe that Leah was the families child and died in a tragic accident during the night. Afterwards, the family got a divorce and everything in DYRML happens.

OK, so it isn't that great. Sue me.

Well, i don't have any theories for this game.... (Reives has killed my great imagination  :'( *sob* )
But i think Birdie is a human and also a bird O_O Maybe he taken Quintessence?  :P

And one question for Mr. Khong Guan Kan Gao: What is Leah eyecolor?  :o (i just wanna draw her with her eyes open, but i don't what the color)

I think that Sizzle's Mirror lied story is the real interpretation. The access card is an access card to porn sites. :P
