Section 3 - Gestures

Include Gesture Variations by Emily Short.

The gestures are eye-gest, breath-gest, and walk-gest.

[This is the same idea as the foregoing, except more abstract. The idea is, we don't want to describe her looking funny at you twice in a row, or walking somehow twice in a row, or... etc. So we keep track of what kind of gesture we last used and pick a different one. Text can be tagged with text variations of the form

"[for eye-gest]She glares[or face-gest]She frowns[or walk-gest]She kicks the tree[end for]"

and this will both select the correct piece of text for the present and record for next time what to avoid in future iterations.

A handful of such texts are not marked up, on the grounds that the specific gesture is crucial to the passage in which it appears and sufficiently distinctive not to run on with the others.
