Her clothes change instantly, leaving her in a butler suit similar but not identical to yours.On her head were a pair of cat ears, and protruding from her lower back, a tail.She reaches up for the ears,"Eh, not so shabby. the tail could get some getting used to though."She walks up to the nearest wall, looks at the Director and asks"May I ma'am?""Go ahead." the petite girl answers.Susan pulls back and punches the concrete with all her might.Huge cracks form around her fist like a spiderweb."Hmnnn thought I could do it in a single punch."She punches it again, and yet again.You she rage in her eyes as she does this for the remaining time that Nekomode was activated.When the ability cuts-off, she still continues to punch the wall, blood now oozing from her knuckles.She's crying.WAT DO?
>>19656383Gently but firmly catch her arm.Hug her.
>>19656383go give our twin a comforting hug, bandage up her hand.
TWINS WE ARE!*wordless hug time*
>>19656383Hug her and hold her while she criesShe isn't alone now
>>19656383Engage emergency crying girl protocol #73. Simultaneously give her a comforting hug, start bandaging her hands and get her to drink some healing blue. Don't ask how it's supposed to work, it's what butlers do.
>>19656383One hand on shoulder, other offering healing potion.Say "Yes it sucks, but you don't have to deal with it alone."
>>19656383Firmly catch hold of her arm, and gently give her a hug. "I know. How you feel, what this all means to you. But you're not alone; I'll be here to help you."
>>19656395"I'm sorry you had to go through that, but you're here now. we...we won't be alone, ever again."
>read twitter>keima starts dancing the girl's part>mfw
You know why she's crying. It's pretty obvious really.Here she is, stuck in a place that's much like her own, but really quite unknown to her.She lost all that she loves, she's lost the girls.She, in all intents and purposes, doesn't exist.It's actually quite reasonable to breakdown.Hell, if it was you [and it really is you by someway] you'd think your reaction would be worse.You reach out to her and wrap her in a wordless embrace.She continues to silently cry on your shoulder.-----------------------------------------------------------------Minutes pass, her tears soaks your shoulder, but thankfully she begins to calm down."You okay now?" you ask this other version of yourself."Y-yeah." she answers."Great. Now let's fix up that hand real quick." you pull out your flask and hand it to her.She downs a few gulps of Healing Blue and hands it back to you."I guess I need to build up my stuff again huh?" she says as she does this."Don't worry. We'll help.""Ayasaki Susan, you are now officially sanctioned Bureau Trainee. Handler will be Mike "The Director tells her this."Further required testing, overseen by me. A room has been provided for you in the dorms.""Thank you ma'am" She answers[ ]Let me take you to your room[ ]Why don't you just stay at our place? [ ]*other stuff you want to say*
>>19656479[x]Why don't you just stay at our place? As if we would even consider not having her live with us.
>>19656479[x]Why don't you just stay at our place? is there a very good reason why she shouldn't?
>>19656479[X] Why don't you just stay at our place? Technically since you're me, kinda, it's just as much your place as mine. Did you ever get a beach side resort in a glass bottle, I personally have no clue how much our timelines diverged Susan.
>>19656479>[ ]Why don't you just stay at our place?
>[X]Let me take you to your roomShe needs some breathing space. Taking her with us now would be to much. Not that we shouldn't drop by with her in tow to freak everyone out.
>>19656479[x]Why don't you just stay at our place? "The girls are going to flip their shit when I bring ANOTHER cute girl back with me."
>>19656479Why don't you just stay at my place?You mentioned it was your house when I saw you beforehand so I see no reason why it shouldn't be the same now
>>19656479[X ]Why don't you just stay at our place? [x] other"Why don't you come home? It's as much yours as mine."
Would Susan know about the house? I'm pretty sure the split happened before we got it and I don't recall any mention of her finding Gulliver's shop.
>>19656493fair point, but we don't want to give her the impression that isn't entitled to a place in our family and in our home. she can get breathing room at the resort easily, there's plenty of space.
>>19656512She found the shop but didn't buy the houseWhen she was bleeding through after the party and during the bath incident she mentioned why were we in her house
>>19656512Just because it wasn't mentioned, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Probably just happened a little later.We know she did have it, because the overlap events, where she called it her house.
>>19656493That would reinforce the feeling of abandonmentRemember right now she is us in our worst case scenario. Everything and everyone we knew is gone so hayate wouldn't want to be alone
>>19656517>>19656534Yeah, and she has everyone she lost around swagged by an alternate version of her.We should ask her if she wants in. It's her call
"Why don't you just stay at our place?" you tell her."I assume by what you said when we saw each other down at the beach that you also had the house in the bottle."She looks pained by this, a reminder of this she lost."I.. I can't. I don't want to intrude.""Bullshit. I'm the closest thing to a relative you have here. We're practically twins. well... weird, timeywimey, domensionally twins, but still... TWINS!"She chuckles at this."It would be rude for me not to insist that you stay. You know that house right? It has loads of room. Besides, the girls will flip thier shit when they see you."That pained expression again, it appeared when you said -girls-."Please, I insist. You don't have to be alone here. I'm here for you.""Really?""Of course.""I'll take you up on that offer then.""Great. Director, this is alright, right?" you ask the head of your organization."Kyon, note that Susan's residence shall now be listed under Ayasaki's. Relationship, siblings."The man who had been silently standing in a corner takes out a notepad and does as he is told.As he writes some stuff down, you can barely hear him mutter a weird mantra repeatedly."...there'stwoofhimnow...there'stwoofhimnow...there'stwoofhimnow...gah.""That will be all for tonight." the director tells you as she turns back."Dismissed."WAT DO OH MASTER BUTLERS?
this thread is cancer, please stop posting. thanks
>>19656559Well, let's go home, obviously.>>19656564No, Anon, you are the cancer.
>wat doWe go home.Wait, or maybe we go to Mike.Or the Doctor.>>19656564Okay.
>>19656564Like the usual 40k Muuureeeens wanking is genuine art.
>>19656559Try and discover differences between yourself and Susan. e.g. equipment, knowledge, stuff like that.
>>19656559Go home. Avoid trolling people, regardless of how tempting it is. Brace for misunderstandings~
>>19656559Take her home.Don't warn any of the girls.How long do you reckon it will take before the girls decide that having her sleep by herself would be cruel and drag her into our bed?
>>19656559Head home, Yuki and Susan in tow. When we get in just tell the girls to put down the rope, hammers, pliers, candles and whatever other implements they had been planning to use, we've had a long day and we have more important things on our plate.
>>19656559>"...there'stwoofhimnow...there'stwoofhimnow...there'stwoofhimnow...gah."Haha Kyon is about to have his mind snapI wonder what P San would think now there is a female hayate running about?Swing by the PX and pick up whatever we can for Susan that she wants / needs then head homeMaybe double "I'M IN YOUR HEAD GIRL" Recette while we are there
>>19656559go by Ryu's first, get us each a drink, then head home. we have a lot of 'splaining to do.
>>19656577It's late, let's not bother Mike just now.At least, I think it's late? I guess I've completely lost track.LG, about what time is it?
>>19656592it was early afternoon when we got thrown in the brig, director said 19 hours remaining, so my guess is evening, around 10.
>>19656559Give her one more hug. "I'm sorry for painful reminders. Let's go."Go home.
>>19656589>double Recette mind controlShe would never recover from such a thingI agree on picking up whatever Susan needs on the way home
Stopping by the PX sounds a fine plan, assuming it's open.
>>19656592you got thrown into the brig early, at about 4.It is now almost 10ish
>WAT DO- Mike: "My dimensional Twin sister. She will be under your care"- The doctor: "Hi. I sorted the whole ghost thing. Any idea how it will affect the whole drain thing?"- Home : "Hey girls. My twin sister. She will be staying with us. Also her Device: Naru."
>>19656619Let's see if the PX is open late. If not, just head home.
>>19656627Nah we go home and let them go nuts until we say on by the way this is me from another dimension who got stuck as a female after messing up the gender swap potionThen we watch the lecherous looks from them all
HEY GUYS!how about we don't use this opportunity as just an excuse for shenanigans.
>>19656559"By the way, how'd things go with Perrine for you?"Susan: "Perrine? What are you talking about?""Oh dear. So you don't know she's pregnant?"
>>19656662That's why my suggestion was>>19656653We let them react then we clear it up. Trying to defuse it before they have their reaction won't work
>>19656665Good idea, start finding out the differences.
>>19656682I think going over the life that Susan just lost would be too painful for her and too insensitive for us. Let's give it some time.
The Director and kyon leave the room, the man giving you a sidelong glance as he did."So, Is there anything you would need before we go home? We can pick some stuff up from the PX." you ask her."I.. I don't think I can right now. I just want to get into a bed and rest.""Of course. Let's head home then." You take her hand and Yuki's as the glasses wearing girl uses her portkey.-------------------------------------------------Back home, you walk into the main entrance to the sound of hammering and drilling."What's going on?" you ask no one in particular."Girls? We're home. Can we all meet up in the sitting room?" You mentillate as you walk down the hall.Hina and Perrine walk out of one of the empty bedrooms furthest from yours, The twins and surprisingly, Mio walks out of the master bedroom powertools in hand."You're early." Erica comments as she steals a glance at Susan. Mio holds her hand out and grins at this."Family meeting." You say again as you lead them into the sitting room.After everyone has settled in, Erica jumps to the chase and asks you without any wind-up."So, what's up? Who's your friend?"WAT SAY?>you will be answering this as Susan.
>>19656731I... have no idea what to say.
>>19656731Some of you know that Hayate in his spare time has been fiddling with a gender-swap potion, entirely for academic purposes, and has an unsuccessful test run a while back. I'm Hayate, from a different timeline where the gender-swap potion worked and was permenant. Then shenanigans occurred, time and space got all twisted up and I ended up here, long story. Since having two Hayates around would make things confusing I'm going by Susan now. I think that pretty much covers it.
"I am Ayasaki Susan. Due to dimensional mishaps involving a gender-switch potion I am stranded in this dimension. I will be under your care for the time being."
>>19656731I AM SUSAN, YOUR NEW GOD
>>19656731Might as well make it quick and to the point."Hello, I am Hayate, but now known as Susan. I . . well its complicated, but I -no - we believe that I am from an alternate timeline or dimension.""In my timeline, the gender transformation potion I used backfired, and I turned into a girl. After a series of . . unforeseen consequences . .I managed to end up here.">Deal is over>YES, SWEET FREEDOM!
>>19656731"I... I'm Hay- Susan. Susan Ayasaki. It's complicated, but, I'm a... I'm from another dimension, where I was Hayate, and now I'm here, and a girl." start tearing up "A-and Hayate offered to let me stay here. I-I hope you'll treat me well."
>>19656731This is a bit hard to explainI am Hayate from another dimension or reality or something, the director just said lots of letters and numbersI made a mistake when I tried to make a gender change potion and got stuck this way, when I tried to undo it the doctor ended up splitting me off from the male me and I ended up alone in this empty "storage" bureau of the directorsI ended up running around looking for anyone and after a while I found where Hayate was and I could see a shadow of him. Then the director appeared and said something about me being waste from the doctor fixing me in my dimension.So I am now in the bureau and listed as Hayate's sister and he invited me to stay here because he said it was my house anyway
>>19656731"I don't understand what exactly has happened, but I will lay out the facts as I know them.I'm Hayate. I succeeded in creating a genderswap potion several weeks ago, but the effects were not reversible. I was doing some tests with The Doctor (however long it's been since the split), when something very strange happened. Once I left the Doctor's lab, I found the bureau to be abandoned. I had no equipment, no device, no one. I was alone. Just now, I was following some sounds when I came upon the Director outside the detention area. She told me that I was in an alternate dimension of the bureau that only she has access to. She brought me here. I don't know what's going to happen now. I've been re-enrolled as a trainee in the advanced class, and I've been given a new device, Naru."
>>19656757I like this.
>>19656731combine these.>>19656746>>19656745>had all day to come to terms with Naru not being our robo maid.>"wait what is going to happen to those parts we found?">still a chance for robo maid!>feel slightly better>brain reminds me of those NTR mangas>what the fuck brain?
>>19656731Sigh. "This is harder than I thought it would be. I'm Ayasaki Hayate, but from an alternate timeline. I had an alchemy accident and ended up as a girl. The procedure to turn me back apparently worked, but...I...I'm waste material. I don't have a home anymore..."
>>19656755Hahaha enjoy your freedom broDid you learn anything beyond your preference to staying single?
>had all day to come to terms with Naru not being our robo maid.Oh like the Naru stuff is going to be that simple.
>>19656778I could see it as a sort of flop-sweat thing.Not that I think we should do it.
>>19656746Maybe later.>>19656731This >>19656775 is much better. It gets my vote.
>>19656776She maybe nice to talk with, but by God she literally ate a ton of my time chatting. I mean sure its nice and all, but I miss my freedom more.I'll stick to being the nerd bro. Seems to be my specialty

>>19656921We'll do it in class.
>>19656921She is us living through her worst nightmare and hoping it doesn't start all over againIt is a terrible idea
>>19656921Yes, and? She's still living through the nightmare of losing everything she had and being ejected from the place that she came to call home.Sure, we're here for her, and she's still employed at a Bureau, but she still lost HER Erica, HER Ursula, HER Hina, HER Perrine, HER Nanoha, HER Kraus, and HER home.These are facsimilies that belong to this timeline's Hayate, not her.
>>19656940>HER PerrineDid she actually get Perrine in her universe?
"Well..." you begin to explain, but she stops you."Let me." she says as she straightens up in her seat and sighs."This is harder than I thought it would be. I'm Ayasaki Hayate, but from an alternate timeline. I had an alchemy accident and ended up as a girl. The procedure to turn me back apparently worked, but...I...I'm waste material. I don't have a home anymore...""Wut?" Erica and Mio ask at the same time."I'm him. But not really. I was ripped out of my world after I was cured. Technically I shoudn't exist anymore..." She says as she looks at all of the girls, and begins to tear up again.Hina beats you in coming to her aid."Do you have a place to stay? You're more then welcome here you know." she tells the other girl."Actually, He offered me a room already." she tells her."Great. If you need anything, even if just someone to talk to, feel free to approach me.""Thank you HIna.""Wait... Wait..." Erica interrupts this scene as elegantly as a buffalo in a room of cymbals."So, you're him, and he's you... But not really?"
>>19656954That's actually irrelevant to his argument.
"Basically." You and Susan answer at the same time with a chuckle"so for all intents and purposes... The two of you are twins?""Kinda.""Yeah.""Sister, it doesn't work like that." Ursula gives her a playful bop on the head."Eh... But it's close right?""Not even. They are basically alternate versions of each other from two parallel timelines. That does not make them twins.""Ehhh..." She tries to argue again."So yeah girls. She'll be staying here with us. I hope that's alright with all of you?" you ask your assembled girls"Fine by me." Erica says with a leer"I agree.""I would'ave suggested that if you hadn't.""It would not be proper to leave her all alone of course.""Of course wife, she may stay." Mio adds her vote.You give Mio a quick look for this but she pays it no mind."Wait, what do we call you? Hayate 1 and 2? or Girlyate and Femaleyate?" Erica asks, giving you a grin as she said "girlyate"."I actually decided to use the name Susan. It's familiar to me and I used it when I first went to the Bureau, I don;t see what's wrong with using it again." Susan tells her."Ah great. Well, Susan., let's get you all settled in."-----------------------------------------The rest of the waking hours were spent getting her comfortable in a room down the hall next to Yuki's.You offered her a meal, but she said that she wasn't hungry.As everyone settled into bed, Yuki and Susan in their rooms, Perrinne and Hina choosing to bunk in the one they came from where you arrived; you slipped into your own bed with the twins, and surprisingly enough, without complaint form the other two, Mio.WAT SAY?[ ]what's with the sleeping arrangements?[ ]what do you think of her?[ ]what's with the chains and stuff?

>>19656971[x]what do you think of her?She's living through our worst nightmare. At least if we woke up in a tub of ice missing most of our organs, it'd all be over soon.But she has to live through it all.

W're going to wake up with everyone in our bed.

>>19657066Let's face it, there's pretty much no way that this isn't going to stabilise into a family centred around both us and Susan at once.Oh gog depending on how the physics of swagimetrics works we've doubled or more our swagitational pull.
>>19657092Why else do you think Kyon was so worried?
>>19657092It is going to end up with a massive collapse of everyone who has been caught in orbit crashing in at once

Ignoring the Chains, straps and other scary accountrements that have been added to your room during your absence, and also wisely not commenting on Mio laying on your left arm, you ask the girls what they think of Susan."Well... She seems sad." Erica tells you."Indeed. She's distant." Ursula agrees with her sister."Your twin needs some counseling." Mio tells you."Yeah, she'll need to talk a lot of stuff out. She was crying earlier as well when she was testing out her new Device.""Well, we'll be here for her." Erica tells you as she settles in deeper into your side."Yeah. Of course." you answer her."Something's been bothering me..." you segue as smooth as gravel "What's with the sleeping arrangements? Why're Perrinne and Hina in the other room, and Mio, why are you in our bed?"**rollem**

>>19657209"Well.." Erica begins to explain sheepishly."They evacuated when we begun our renovation of the room." Ursula explains deftly for her sister."Ah. they coudnt stand the hammering I take?""That and the drills, and the welder, and the jackhammer... and the other stuff." Erica grins."And... Why are you here Mio?" You ask the Pirate witch."It would not be proper to send a lady back outside this late at night would it?" She says coyly."But why in our bed?""You're warm.""... no grabbing okay?" You plead "I'll try."Something pokes you in the back, your reach underneath you and pull out a broken-off hammer head."So uhhh, I'm scared to ask this, but whats with the -renovations-?" You ask them as you throw the hammer head towards the foot of the bed."It was gonna be our surprise for you when you get out of the brig... But since you got out early, the surprise is ruined now." She pouts cutely."I see... And I take it the chains were really necessary?""of course they are." Answers Ursula.---------------------------------------------------------------
>>19657290>"of course they are." Answers Ursula.Say "Are?" and then run for the door. Don't run fast enough for them to not catch you.
>>19657290The chains are always necessary
>>19657290I wonder if they're going to finish the 'renovations' tomorrow.

Hey LG, when it comes to time for our class to move on to field training have you already decided what dimension we'll be stationed in or are you going to let the thread have input?I personally think it should be pic related.
>>19657387Ugh.>>19657371[nospoilers]It's all an act![/on/tg/]
>>19657398i made the mistake of loaning her a keyboard once. never again. I'll get a picture of it next chance I get.
>>19657389He decided earlier onIt is giant robots iircWe wanted giant school made of robots
>>19657290Some time after midnight, you wake up to Erica and Mio playing a game of sleeping tug of war with your legs.You unhook yourselves from them and for some reason, unknown to even you, decide to slip out of bed and take a walk.You found her on the midway point of the tower stairs and the beach.Looking over the artificial ocean from that balcony.She's dead quiet, and just stands there staring out into the emptiness.You try and walk away silently and give her some alone time, but your shoes grate across the steps, creating the slightest of noises."Please don't go." Susan says without looking back at youWat say/do?
After a few weeks of absence I come back>"...there'stwoofhimnow...there'stwoofhimnow...there'stwoofhimnow...gah."You broke him.I like you all already.
>>19657423"I won't."Then just stand next to her.
>>19657423Are you all right?
>>19657423Walk back and hug herSay we don't understand how it is for her but we know it is our worst fear and that we won't let her be alone
>>19657423stand next to her. say nothing.
>>19657423Put an arm across her shoulders, "Alright."
That guy who just posted about having been gone for a few weeks>- Home : "Hey girls. My twin sister. She will be staying with us. Also her Device: Naru.">Also her Device: Naru.>mfw
>>19657411not so sure i want to see it but i am interested nonetheless.have had my keyboard for about 8 years now, all the keys are turning a sick yellow except for the: left shift, c, > and enter keysi try to keep it clean, i really do!
>>19657423Don't say anything. Just walk over to her, give her some basic support contact, like an arm around her shoulder. Hug her if she turns towards us.
>>19657473Don't jinx it.
>>19657423[x] Don't go.Stand next to her.
>>19657473you're fucking welcome. although we may get punished for messing with the plot arcs again.
>>19657474Well, that's really just aging plastic, I think. Though I think the particular keys that aren't yellowing is an interesting combination.
>>19657423stand next to her and just stay there until she says more.
>>19657489>implying it would still be easy
>>19657518What's with the brig?
>>19657526We were put there with Yuki for insubordination, because we refused to fight the last fight of the tourney between the basic & advanced classes.
>>19657526We refused to take part in an exercise after startingEveryone got a weeks pay docked and Yuki and Hayate got 24 hours in the brig ( cancelled by the appearance of Susan )
>>19657542>>19657547I presume it was Hayate vs Yuki?
>>19657511It's because his fingers touch the keyboard. The oil in his skin causes the key to oxidize slightly over time. After long enough, the most-used keys will be yellower (more oxidized) than the least-used keys. But yeah, even if he wasn't typing on it, they would all yellow eventually anyway, it would just take much longer and be much more uniform.
You say nothing and walk up to stand next to her.The two of you spent a few minutes in comfortable silence, the waves echoing belos you and the soft constant breeze on your skins. Finally, she opens her mouth and asks you,"So... What's with Perrinne, Yuki and the Major?"WAT SAY?>>19657474They yellow not only from dirt but from sunlight/UV as well.Hydrogen peroxyde should deal with that.i think those particular keys not yellowing could be because they came from a different batch of keys, a slightly different plastic composition.[i replace my keyboards atleast every two months. they break so fukken easily]
>>19657555They were the ringleaders of the refusal.
>>19657542>>1965752624 hour brig stay which got cut short due to Kyon/Susan and we lost a weeks pay for it together with all the trainees who refused to fight.looking forward to see how this all plays out, weekend will be upon us soon and then i can stay for the whole threads!
>>19657555Our teams, yeah. Ours was Us, Erica, Hina, & Gai. Unless there was a fifth I'm completely blanking on.I don't actually k now the characters on Yuki's team other than her.
Ok I know we have serious stuff with Susan right nowBut am I the only one worried about>Erica and Mio playing a game of sleeping tug of war with your legsWe already have bitey assaulting us on a nightly basis but now Mio too?
>>19657565>"So... What's with Perrinne, Yuki and the Major?""That never happened in your timeline? Perrine's pregnant - future me was seduced by her when he helped us in the Witches dimension." "Yuki's infatuated, but at the moment I'm just her guardian because the Director said so." "Mio took a serious liking to me when Erica and I performed a prank where we pretended to be her future children. She's stopped drinking and, were it not for the fact that she wants to seduce me, rather than the other way around, I expect she would already be part of the family."
>>19657565"Yuki, I'm not exactly sure. The director has had her enrolled as a trainee, and I've been assigned as her new guardian. Kyon isn't happy about that, as I'm sure you could tell.Mio is head over heels, and trying her best to trip me into a bed without the girls permission. I'm trying to reverse seduce her.As for Perrine, you should probably sit down before I explain that. She's pregnant. Future-us is the daddy. apparently we slept with her the same night we made things official with the twins, in the SW dimension."
>>19657565"Perrine came in a bit after the Advanced classes started. I should tell you, she's pregnant. Apparently we get stupid in the future and go back into the past and knocked her up during our first time in Erica and Ursula's home Dimension. More time shenanigans."Mio, she got serious on us after we played a prank on her with Erica. You get to meet Ms. Melmo in the Advanced Classes? Remember the candy that Nanoha took that made her older? We took the one that makes us younger, acted like our kids from the future. Played it on Trude and Mio. Now Mio wants our kid, apparently."As for Yuki...I got nothing. The Director made us her guardian and had her move in here."
>>19657565I guess things happened differently for youPerrine is pregnant, time shenanigans apparentlyYuki got assigned to live with me yesterday because the director thought it was necessaryMio has been trying to make me her wife and well the girls decided it was ok for me to go on the offensive to get her to ask if she can join the family
>>19657565>"So... What's with Perrinne, Yuki and the Major?"Well that's complicated. Apparently at some point in the future I'll go back to when I visited the witches' home dimension and get Perrine pregnant. Once we found out about that there wasn't really any chance of her not joining our family.Yuki's here because Director Nagato decided to transfer her guardianship to me because of that time when... *blush*And well, Mio and I are currently engaged in pitched battle.
>>19657565You type too hard, man.fukken tab closure. All my typing."Well, the director assigned me as Yuki's guardian, so she moved in. Doesn't hurt that she's cute."Mio's been after me for a while, did she not try anything with you before the... change? I've gotten permission from the girls to respond with appropriate force."Perrine... Perrine's difficult." Give her a serious look, "You never found out, did you? She's pregnant, with our time baby. Trude broke my arm a couple times in the time it took to be revealed."

"Where should I begin... Mio, she got serious on us after we played a prank on her with Erica. You get to meet Ms. Melmo in the Advanced Classes? Remember the candy that Nanoha took that made her older? We took the one that makes us younger, acted like our kids from the future. Played it on Trude and Mio. Now Mio wants our kid, apparently.""I see, and I take it she has permission from the girls already?""Nope. I think she wants me to confess to her. Something about her warrior's pride not wanting to give up the chase.""That makes sense, and what are you doing about it?""I'm declaring war on her. Pursuing her myself. It now breaks down to whoever gives in first.""It's gonna be a tough battle... What about Yuki? I never did spend too much time with her after... the incident."."Yuki...I got nothing. The Director made us her guardian and had her move in here.""I see... and what about Perrinne then?""I think you're gonna have to sit down for this one." you say as you lead her to the steps to be seated."Perrinne... Well... She's pregnant, with our baby. And we did it in the past, in our future... It's all too complicated.""She's pregnant?!""Yeah.. haha.""Wait... Then back there, from where I came from... She's also pregnant?""Most likely.""That explains some stuff..." She says before silence overtakes you two again.ANYTHING TO SAY/DO?
>>19657799I'm glad i learned that too, this is my old laptop that i let my five year old bother use until my pc blew up.
>>19657789doesn't seem to hold you back, i'm impressed.>>19657793it might be because he slams the keys like so many people i know.bloody hell its not a punching bag!>or type a lot... i don't know.
>>19657807>ANYTHING TO SAY/DO?We should warn her about the other people who are on decaying orbits. Tell her about the simulation with Keima and Miki turning up in our bed one time.
>>19657807100% platonic twin-tier snuggle time. I'm willing to bet she could really use someone holding her right now.
>>19657807Ask her how Keima reacted to us being a girlWe know we affect him so this just seems too good to pass up
>>19657807explain about Naru. and about Keima.
>>19657823YeahAnd when we go back to bed drag her with us if we have to. Not gonna let her go be alone and mopey
>>19657807"Also I might have sort of maybe kissed Keima slightly. But we were both girls at the time so I don't think it's gay."
>>19657807>Anything to saySit down next to Susan."So, about Naru. I take it you missed the Infinicon simulation?"Explain to her what happened, why we felt so responsible for Naru not coming through."Oh yeah, you remember the Idols, right? Well, Miki found her way into our bed once..."And explain that little fiasco.And trade the clone program with Susan now.
>>19657807MOONLIGHT!>how many nights has this been?
>>19657807explain Naru, tell her about our familiars, garden with berry bush and mandy(? i forgot her name)>>19657812>5 year old botheri laughed.
>>19657854And bunny mode / neko modeWe haven't actually heard Kraus's opinion on all this yet either
>>19657854No, we don't give her any extra shit until Mike clears it.Even if she has as much training from Mike as we do.
>>19657861Good pointThere isn't any hard limit but we need 3 nights and possibly one that is a full moon
>>19657861Doesn't it just get stronger the longer it sits?>>19657864Totally unintentional, meant brother, though bother works too.
>>19657861Tonight should be the last night for curing the Moonlight, too. Now would be a good time to show it to Susan. Teaching it is going to be a bitch to do, though.
>>19657888Let's let Ryuu do that.I'll agree with a Bunny/Neko Mode swap, let the clones wait for now.
>>19657888Yeah. We would have to shoot her without warning.
>>19657888>>19657893Considering the prep time required, there's really not much point in us both knowing how to make it.
>>19657888Ryuu teaches herWe can show it to her and explain it thoughMaybe recount the story of after we drank it and our chasing butterflies
>>19657913Except that she's her own person with her own life who's also interested in alchemy, not some familiar or device that just acts as an extension of our will.
>>19657913There is good reason since we get two people who can make itRemember we won't necessarily both be in the same place at once so if we can both make it then it is a bonus
should probably hold off on learning moonlight for a few days. that's the one where he shot us, remember?
>>19657923And that equates to her learning exactly the same potions how?
>>19657933Well it is all up to Ryuu when she learns it anyway
>>19657933That's why I said Ryuu should do it.
>>19657935It doesn't. It should be up to her and Ryuu. There's also no reason why she shouldn't, though.
>>19657935Same progression of skills and need for useful potions such as a stronger healing potion which is pretty much expected as a standard for any decent alchemist?Plus we are going to be working together on alchemy and experimentation probably so I dare say she will learn the ones we do and vice versa
>>19657935Because, as her own person, maybe she WANTS to learn it? She has an interest in Alchemy just as we do, so why wouldn't she want to learn it.
>>19657947And maybe tuning herself permanently into a girl soured her alchemy experience and she doesn't want to learn anymore.
>>19657966Well given all our actions as Susan we kept pushing on with the alchemy so I doubt it
>>19657966Exactly. We shouldn't be making any plans for her one way or the other. She can pursue whatever she wants - or not pursue whatever she wants. If she wants to learn moonlight, that's exactly as fine as not learning it.
>>19657947She might want to but we should leave that up to her teacher.
>>19657966>>19657947>>19657935Umm... don't we also have some control over Susan? So don't we decide what she wants sorta?
>>19658006Only when it's a Susan section. Until then, she's a free-willed character.
>>19658006Yes but we're playing from hayates perspective right now.
You pull out your jar of moonlight and place it next to you on the steps."Moonlight huh?" She asks"Yep. You also learning how to make this?""Ryuu shot me when I went down to his place all depressed and wanting a drink. he said it should take my mind off things. It kinda did.""Heh, butterflies." you both say at the same time."We're gonna do that real often huh?" she asks"Most likely.""So... Huh, I guess i have to thank you for letting me stay here, I must admit this is better then my plan of just staying all alone in a room and shutting out the world.""I'm you. I knew you'd want to do that." you tell her."Thank's again.""You are most welcome.""Hey, can you tell me more about Naru?" she asks you.WAT SAY/DO?
>>19658006Occasionally, but we shouldn't view those segments from the Hayate perspective.
rolled 64 = 64>>19658034PTSD TIME
>>19658034"Sure."So, you went through the Infinicon sim, right? Well, here's how we met..."And tell her how we met Naru and the Ramen-gumi, and how we think we hatted her, and how, in the end, we couldn't bring her through.
>>19658034"She was a construct in the Infinicon mission. "I actually got nothing. But that's okay, since I don't seem to have been doing well recently with written bits. And I gotta go anyway.
>>19658034Dammit we wanted to mention Keima. Fine, bring it up after telling her about Naru.>WAT SAY/DO?"She was in the Infinicon simulation... I failed her."
>>19658034That picture makes me wonder.Not counting the Major, or the potential of adult/older Nanoha after she gets back, does Susan have the biggest breasts in the family?>WAT SAY/DO?Go over the Infinicon Mission, the hatting, the Failure, and let Kraus handle the rest.
>>19658034Tell her the whole story, end with how happy we are that we got to keep our promise after all.
>>19658034>heh butterfliesDammit we are going to mess with people's headsSure. No point keeping anything from myself after all.Give her a run down of the infinicon mission from our perspective and our affect on Naru and the promise etc
>>19658034don't forget, as her device, Naru is going to hear all this."She was originally part of the Infinicon simulation, just programmed data that should have been erased when the assignment ended. But our data manipulation got into her, and I got pretty attached to her. I promised I would bring her out if I could. The director gave me a chance to wake her up full after the sim was over, but I failed. Kraus said he was going to take care of it. I owe him one now."

>>19658205Seriously guys, I can't be the only one who doesn't like this one bit.
>>19658275conveniently dodging that issue for the moment.
>>19658275Of course there are going to be complications. But currently there's nothing to indicate that there's anything wrong, so we can't act on it.The best thing to do right now is to find that robo-maid body so that it's ready for when shit hits the fan, and we need it.
>>19658259Well either the or she hammer spaces it our of her apron>>19658205Yeah but how the fuck did he actually do that? I thought even with shamisen helping he wouldn't be able to outright delete it, maybe switch it's places with Naru I could see but forcing a delete? That's like director level clearance
Don't forget to look for that element ring I mentioned. We could use some variety in out melee attacks. Preferably one with fire, ice, earth, air, positive and negative.
>>19658297>Of course there are going to be complications. But currently there's nothing to indicate that there's anything wrong, so we can't act on it.That's not what I mean. I'm not saying "Oh man is this going to go wrong somehow." I'm saying "What the fuck, Kraus just murdered something that's just like him."
>>19658315Kraus basically spawn camped the poor SoB
>oh yeah, Susan does have the nicest assets among all the family.COMMENCE BOARDING OPERATIONS!
>>19658315But according to slightly earlier in the conversation, Kraus explained it more as him cutting in line for a personality to be uploaded into the Device.>INSTEAD OF A NEW PERSONALITY BEING UPLOADED INTO IT AS YOU ACTIVATED IT, I, WITH SOME HELP FROM THE FURBALL, BUT I STILL DID MOST OF THE WORK, I PUT HER DATA WHICH I HAD BEEN STORING DORMANT IN ME, AFTER STEALING IT BEFORE IT WAS ERASED PERMANENTLY, INTO THAT STILL BLANK DEVICESo the Device was still blank when he inserted Naru's personality data.
>>19658328yeah thats kind of messed up to be honest.my bet is he fucked up somehow and it will come back all kinds of pissed off.
>>19658328would you expect any less of him?
>>19658339>"But Kraus, you told me 2 personalities can't inhabit the same device.">"YEAH, BUT I ERASED THE NEW ONE BEFORE IT COULD BOND TO SUSAN HERE."
Whatever Naru says we should apologise.
>>19658343Kraus's first yandere?
rolled 77 = 77>>19658359woops
>>19658339>>19658348>Erased the new one before it could bondI get the feeling he might not have done that good a job of itThese things are made to be resilient so they can work through all sorts of shit for their partner after all
>>19658348Alright, so we've got two conflicting explanations. He either cut in line at the creation matrix and he got Naru into a still-blank Device, or he attempted a deletion of a still un-activated personality.
>>19658235Posting is slow from phone. I almost didn't roll at all, though.
>>19658371>"YEAH, BUT I ERASED THE NEW ONE BEFORE IT COULD BOND TO SUSAN HERE."I'd pretty much say he killed it.Well, is it a murder if you do an abortion?
>>19658328>Kraus spawn campingHEY MOTHERFUCKER! WHAT IS 2 NANOSECONDS OLD AND ALREADY FUCKED? YOU!
>>19658208She bows to you, in that formal, elegant manner of hers, and says."Milord, I wish to thank you and master Kraus for keeping your promise and taking me with you. If it was not for you, I would still be going through the motions in that city. For that I would like to express my deepest gratitude.""No Naru, I did almost nothing. Kraus is the only one you should thank.""No milord. I thank you for making that promise to me in the first place. It was that tiny ray of hope I was waiting for all that time, and it set things into motion."She walks up to you and takes your hands in hers.Her hands were warm, so warm.Her tears that began to fall were warmer.You stand up and give her a nice big hug."Welcome home Naru." you tell her in your native toungue."I'm home." she replies.
>>19658379I think it was just personality preset data, not a formed mind. It's like changing the presets on something by erasing the old cookies. So instead of a blank personality preset getting loaded, Naru's personality and memories got loaded.
>>19658371Attempted deletionWe were told all inactive devices have a personality in them before which is why we couldn't throw Naru into a spare but he cut the link between it and Susan before anything bondedDid kraus maybe end up with it sucking into where he stored Naru I wonder?
>>19658303That's why he needed Shamisen.He's powered by Yuki, the Director's "clone"Haxx by extension
>>19658387Pull Susan into the hug too. A great, big, tearful group hug.
>>19658387Bring Susan into the hug too. She may have lost her old home, but this is her home now.
>>19658387"You're both home."And pull Susan into the hug.
>>19658392Nah it has a personality to begin withRemember back in the first thread mike said that kraus was a weird personality pre load? They are pre loaded and a full personality waiting to be activated.If Hayate ever realizes this it is gonna be major PTSD for him and probably Susan
>>19658425No memories, though. Not until it's activated. Just personality data.
>>19658387enjoy the moment boys. It's probably the last of its kind we'll get for a while.
>>19658433It is still infinitely more complex than Naru was. It may not have memories but it was a full conciousness that he stomped out of existenceWhich means Hayate had better not find that out
NEXT TIME ON MSQ:Washing AwayNew thread at 0700 4chan time.>can't do 2200
>>19658451Night LGHave fun with whatever is taking up your time tomorrow
>>19658445Naru's a full consciousness. She's so complex that Hayate was only able to keep her running for seconds before passing out. She's certainly on the exact same tier as a device personality - and has memories to boot. What Kraus did to that device was alter its personality in Naru's and insert her memories before it had even taking its first metaphorical breath. It's less like abortion and more like if a fetus had its genome completely rewritten and some memories implanted part way through gestation. It becomes a different person than it would have been, but doesn't really die, per se.
>>19658445>Naru wasThen we meddled with Naru's code, causing her to "awaken."
>>19658451Another job out of the office?Or they're actually making you do work?
>>19658433>>19658445I smell a BBEG in the works!
and whoever came up with that "the means I'll always be there to protect you" line in the last thread,that was so cheesy it made me lactose intolerant.
>>19658425From Kraus' explanation, and that first thread, I gather that the personalities are stored in that "creation matrix" and then only loaded into the devices upon activation.And killing personalities isn't that weird.Mike gave us that option when Kraus first spoke
>>19658477>Mike gave us that option when Kraus first spokeRemember our reaction to that option?
>>19658494Our reaction was more along the lines of "Nah, this guy is funny".Not "oh gob you're going to kill a sapient AI".
>>19658494Slap him, drink alcohol until we woke up in our vomit in Rio de Janeiro with our new best friend?
>>19658461Actually the devices are a step above since they have powers and such standard and we could just support Naru as a familiarAlso devices are pre loaded as complete personalities. Kraus was Kraus, regardless of who got him>"This is your badge and device. The preloaded AI will be able to assist you during duty>Hmnnn seems like you got a weird AI there man. I can have it replaced if it grates on you too much."Devices are entire entities prior to anyone using them. Replacement is possible but done by the bureauLike it or not Kraus killed something just like him
>>19658494"I think I'll keep him"we were'nt too opposed to it, nor did we react violently
>>19658503Yup. I don't think we'll react terribly badly to the fact that Naru overwrote some basic preloaded personality data.
>>19658506Ah, I remember when something quite similar happened....
>>19658518After our shitfit over Naru who was a basic construct until we fucked with her code?If Hayate finds out he would flip his shit. We nearly attacked the dude because we wanted to save Naru we nearly broke down because we failed to sustain her. Kyon nearly bitchslapped us and told us to let it go because she was a construct we had known for about 5 minutes before becoming attached to ( I know we spent 3 days in there but people grew attached too fucking fast )
>>19658540Fuck Kyon, the shit does he know?
How many reloads do we have left?
>>19658558We don't know.
Anyone else notice this new Tweeted photo?The word REAL has been crossed out
>>19658540If she had stayed a basic construct, then we wouldn't have flipped a shit over it. It's because she went beyond a mere construct, and become a fully sapient AI, that we flipped our shit. We've dealt with construct NPC's in sims before and since that incident, and haven't had any problem with them getting erased. Naru is a special case.
>>19658540The fact of the matter is this: We knew and cared about Naru.Does anyone remember when we killed Raz? We didn't even so much as blink when we killed him. Hell some of us felt accomplished.
>>19658593Yes but because she was sentientJust like what kraus killedWe didn't care about the rest because they were just NPC's and we understood thatThis is a whole new ball game
>>19658601>Does anyone remember when we killed Raz?No. Refresh my memory.
>19658601See >>19658610The reason it became such a big issue was because she was sentient. Once we realized that is when it changed from "oh well she is gone" to "WE MUST SAVE HER"
>>19658614Raz was the target in an assassination simulation.It's also the same one that we got Daniil from.Raz was holed up in a fortress, so we dropped a couple barrels of Molotov and some boulders on him. Then, when he survived, we stabbed him right in the chest and killed him.
>>19658614The sim where we picked up DanHe was the boss of the sim who we saw for all of five seconds before stabbing him to death
>>19658635That's a sim. That's completely different. He was just a simple construct. Naru stopped being one because of our data manipulation.
>>19658564... I'm scared.
>>19658645...uh, yes. That was the point of the anon who brought it up.And I was just explaining who Raz was, because someone wanted a reminder.
>>19658670The real point is that he wasn't even truly killed. He'll be reloaded good as new next time someone runs through a sim. It's a bad comparison for that reason, not because he's simple and she's complex.
>>19658564She could have been so much moreInstead now she's only a device...
>>19658705>onlyI think that's a grand thing to be. And as proven by slotting Kraus into strikers, she could power other things. Like, say a robotic body. And that's aside from physically manifest as many devices, like Saber, do.
>>19658705Well, at least she's now our River Song
>>19658716She could have been a-
>>19658728Real girlWhere is kyuubey when we need him?
>>19658601>>19658635>>19658677Complexity is irrelevant, it seems.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19449259/#p19452891>"Well yeah, Just wiping out all those innocents just seemed wrong to me."I see this line as implying that we see the constructs in the simulations as people, not just devices.
>>19658758in the SCP Bestiary, locked under the deepest keter-class vault
>>19658780But those people got wiped anyway when the sim ended. And the same for every iteration of them that existed for all of the other pairs of trainees.I think the line was more about us considering the implications of calling in an air strike in an actual field op, where we would be consigning hundreds of people to their deaths.
>>19658780i think we said that in the context of "if this was the real deal..."
>>19658809You are sort of grasping at straws here.We have repeatedly shown a reluctance to kill anything sentient. Raz was the one exception and we even tried taking to him first.We will flip if we find out what happened. You don't have to like it any more than I liked us getting Naru this shitty way
>>19658840Raz was not the one exception. There was also Caster in the Bluebeard Scenario. The only hesitation we did was to keep him talking while we took in the situation, then Timestopping to kill him as soon as we identified where the last of the kids were. If I'm remembering correctly, we've actually only played through 5 simulations that weren't against combat exercises against fellow trainees:1. Bluebeard2. Infinicon3. Melmo's combat sim against monsters4. Raz5. St. Vicious1 we didn't show any reluctance to kill, 2 we didn't kill partly because we didn't have lethal weaponry and killing would have taken longer than simple KO's, 3 didn't really have anything resembling sapients, 4 we didn't hesitate to try to kill Raz (talking to him was just fight banter, it didn't involve trying to get out of killing him), 5 we wanted to complete the mission without calling in a strike because we thought we could do better, and we don't like the idea of calling in an airstrike that would kill civilians.And as for real-world situations where we killed, we've already killed sentients in the form of the Martians that attacked Castle Barin. It was in self-defense, yes, but we killed those Martians without any hesitation or even any remorse.
>>19659084We were disappointed, but it was Hina that took it really hard.
>>19659037Blue beard was a magus not a humanInfinicon we didn't killMelmo's sim was against non humansRaz was a fully thinking human constructWe fought our shadow selfSt vicious we avoided civilian casualties and destroyed an alien life formWe didn't see any Martians in the castle barin attack and they were threatening our friendsWe wanted to drug Raz which was why we tried talking to himEvery other situation we have hesitated to hurt anything that has no reason to cause us harm.Like say an AI that is just about the be activatedWe didn't kill it but it will cause us a problem because Kraus did so happily. We trust him but this is a new side that Hayate was almost certainly unaware ofAnyway until LG says one way or the other it isn't going to change muchAlso the Raz fight he tweeted "you now realize Raz was Hayate's first reall kill and it was up close" we haven't seen anything from it but that doesn't mean he isn't keeping some PTSD in reserve to fuck us with
>>19659084Where the hell did my post go?>Plus during the bluebeard mission we took it really hard when he killed those kids>>19659102This is true.
>>19659109>We wanted to drug Raz which was why we tried talking to himThat was us putting Molotov into his tea.That's pretty much explosive assassination; there was nothing nonlethal about that.
>>19659155I never mentioned what to drug him with.I actually wanted to watch him explode from Molotov teaI am just saying it isn't particularly in our character to pass such things off given our history of these sorts of events with even lesser constructs
>>19659184And I agree to an extent that our character is far more willing to choose a non-violent approach when possible. And, if Kraus really did delete a fully sapient AI, and we find out that he did it with a cavalier attitude, then yes, I think we should be a little disturbed by it. But I don't think that we should flip shit over it like we did when we thought we lost Naru the first time, since part of the reason why we were so invested in her was because she reminded us of ourselves so much.And as for the loss of NPC constructs in sims, I think our character would be disappointed at their deaths, equivalent to scoring badly on a test (which it technically is, since these are training sims), or losing at a video game. Be a little sad, but don't lose any sleep over it.
>>19659266SeeI agree on that point, but I still think it would be more than scoring badly on a test. So far Hayate seems to have a pretty big savior complex where he must save everyone he can because he is afraid of losing anyoneThe only time we were truly cavalier about a civvie death was the kids in the Bluebeard scenario but that I think was largely because Hina was in trouble.That and we still saved most of them
Now for the most pressing issue of all: How do we eliminate our parents as a threat?
>>19659329Point Nanoha at our planetTell her to go crazy
>>19659329First, we sever all legal ties with them, so that they can't hold any kind of legal hold over us, or put us into contracts of any kind. Then, maybe pay off with the Yakuza and give them a bonus to 'remove' our parents.>>19659350As much as I like that idea, I don't want a black mark to go on her record for our sake.
>>19659360I like it, it's constructive>>19659350Hina's family and that nice little rich girl we met, we have some ties there that we don't hate.
>>19659329What parents? Our parents are dead. It's the only logical explanation. Thus, who ever claims to be our parents must be either imposters, or zombies.One we can kick out without any twinge of conscience, and the other we can destroy with impunity.>>19659360We should ask Mike if he can do something about those legal ties while we're still in training.
>>19658564Yep he crossed the world real out, expect something terrible regarding Naru.
>>19659381Maybe have a death certificate forged, and our old identity listed as dead, while creating a new identity for us in the National Register?
>>19659381>Our parents are deadHayate's parents are fucking cockroaches man, they wouldn't die if a nuke were dropped on them. They'd find a way to sell us to whoever dropped the nuke so they could go on a three day gambling bender in Vegas.
>>19659457Of course they're not actually dead. Yet. It's an excuse to do horrible things to the "imposters/zombies"
>>19659480If you think about it, if Hayate and Mio are our great parents in this timeline, would we not be the legal guardians of our parents?
>>19659543our great grandparents*
>>19659543I think it doesn't really work that Hayate & Mio are our ancestors in our own timeline. Between Hero of Japan and Best Butler of all Butlers as influences, there would have to be some serious drift to reach the recklessness of Hayate's parents
>>19659631Well there goes reverse sell our parents as a plan...
>>19659706Im not sure anymore, came up with it after sleeping through my Roman Law course one day.
>>19659727We get them declared unfit to take care of themselves and then we take legal custody and sell them to someone! Brilliant!
>>19659861Eh, let's just cut legal ties. To start with.
>>19659350But A-tan might still be down there.That reminds me, where was it we did the scrying from where we saw Bike-kun? Because I've been thinking of maybe doing that again, and maybe using it to find A-tan's ring. Or maybe even A-tan herself.
Honestly I think trying to deal with his parents might be the one thing that sends Hayate into a complete breakdown. They've been in complete control of his life for a very long time and he's definitely not yet over everything they've done to him.If they turned up suddenly I would expect Hayate to be unable to do anything about them unless the girls were there to save him from them
>>19660133That's definitely an option, but I like the incredulous rage alternative, which is what I've been suggesting all along with the "My parents are dead" lines.
>>19660133>>19660369And then we can get cool sith powers?
>>19660650Im under the assumption that any "evil" actions will set us on the way to spawning negayate.
>>19660754Nah. Not when it involves Hayate's asshole parents.
>>19660763If I remember Fallout 3, killing bad characters adds good Karma, you may just be right... but then again no man is as accursed as the kinslayer.
>>19660782They aren't kin if we disown/divorce/whatever them.
>>19660953I mean, genetic links can only carry you so far.
>>19661000Again this is true.
