I'm sorry for the impromptu hiatus, I've had trouble with my computer and internet so I'm only now able to run this again. Never wanted you guys to think this died or anything, in fact with the absence, I've gotten more ideas for this...So, without further ado. The story of Omar Denis Continues!The Story of Omar Denis Continues! I apologize for the bit of Hiatus, I had to fix up some details. It's true what they say, starting a quest thread is easy, carrying it on is what begins to get more difficult! However this is interesting...Previous threads can be found here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=OverhumanYou control the fate of an invoker named Omar Denis.After losing his parents due to circumstances beyond his control, Omar unlocked his latent potential as an Overhuman.Recruited by a mysterious woman in black, known as "Fauna," he entered into an organization known as "Renaissance."During the training of his powers, he absorbed the legend of the phoenix and shot up in danger levels among the organization, tested in the desert, he was allowed to live..Having recently forgiven Renaissance's missteppings, Omar seeks to change this organization from within!Last time: Omar had a risky encounter with Violet that ended abruptly after Katie calling him in his room. With the distraction out of the way, Omar meets Katie at the sparring sands and she aids in the making of his memento: A red glass Phoenix with his mother's ashes mixed into the form.Last time: We learn of the nature of Renaissance as a company that not only deploys Overs, but researches their powers as well. Omar has been under surveillance in the use of his powers from day one.However, rejecting his position as a lab rat and all the more as a mercenary he breaks away from Lock, Elizabeth, Kill, and Wallie to think.Calling on Katie, he finds her disposition has changed greatly, and can only think of one person responsible...Violet.

"Katie, could you look up Violet's profile. Do you see the part where it says 'thought implantation'?You've met me, I'm about as subtle as someone putting a brick in a sock and hitting you with it. My powers consist of hitting you with sea-life inspired clubs and setting myself on fire. Do you really think I could pull off anything that complicated?"I see her eyes shift, and she moves her hand to another part of the screen. At first, I think she's going to hang up on me, but she stays on the line,"I... I really want to... I want to believe you.." I hear her mumble under her breath.I don't say anything more, I can't aggravate this..After a few moments of watching her eyes reading something on the screen, she sighs."I... I guess you're telling the truth..." She looks away from the screen again, appearing to almost pout."I wouldn't lie to you Katie..."Her eyes shift back and she frowns again, her mouth slightly open in a mild scowl,"I still... I'm not happy right now... I'm especially not happy with you... Though I guedd it's because of this magic or whatver...Leave me alone for a bit, I'll see what I can do, ok? Jus... Just wait...
>>23533339lets see what we can do go on a mission
What do I do next?> Find Violet, I need to confront her about this.> I'll drop this for now, I'll return to my quarters...> I'll report this incident to someone, there has to be someone that'll do something.> Write in.
>>23533444>find violetnobody's gonna help us out with our shit
>>23533444>> I'll drop this for now, I'll return to my quarters...lets see what we can do go on a mission
>>23533444[X] Find Violet, I need to confront her about this.We need to nip this in the bud.
In my seething frustration, I need no time to think about what to do about this bullshit that Violet's pulled, I'm going to find her, I'm going to find her and... and... I'm not sure yet what I'll do when I find her, but I'll get to that. I feel my body's burning sensation as my anger nearly gets out of hand, one part of me would definitely like to burn that pale thin neck of hers as I squeeze my grip around her throat... But I'm not sure of the reprucussions to that.. Then again, what would happen to her if I reported this? Whatever it is, it wouldn't be good enough for that bitch.Walking away from the console, I set to locating her.Where do I look first?It's just after lunch..> Her room, I know she takes meals there...> The training sands, I haven't seen her there before, but she got Katie, and Katie's almost always there.> Call Violet on a console, if she uses video, I'll know her location.. But she'll know I'm after her.> Write in.Secondary> I calm down, I shouldn't go about this with a literal "hot head."> I'm angry, she's done nothing but try to control me.
>>23533708Calm down and call her
>>23533708[X] Her room, I know she takes meals there...[X] I calm down, I shouldn't go about this with a literal "hot head."Setting her on fire won't solve our problems, it'll only exacerbate them. We don't want to just punish her, we want to solve this, that requires calm.
>>23533708> I calm down, I shouldn't go about this with a literal "hot head."> Call Violet on a console
>>23533708good good. let the hate flow though you. this organization is out to get you, and so is just about everyone involved with it. what few connections you manage to make will hold you back.>go to her room. be direct, don't let her now you're ocming. though she probably will anyway with her psychic crap>I'm angry...
>>23533787Hate, your weakness it is.
>>23533824there is no such thing as peace, only passionthrough passion i will gain strengththrough strength i will gain powerthrough power my chains will be broken
>>23533863And the last time we tried to jedi, we ended up bleeding from all over.
>>23533863Tell that to the chosen one
>>23533881im gonig for more of the philosophy than the actual practice itself. also that's the sith code but whatever haha
>>23533937The Sith code is rather badass compared to every other code ever
>>23533921yeah but we can't get burned
>>23533881thats the Sith creedwe want >>23533952really really? look at this Emotion, yet peace. Ignorance, yet knowledge. Passion, yet serenity. Chaos, yet harmony. Death, yet the Force.
>>23533971Eh I may be a bit bias since I learned the entirity of the Sith code through Kotor
Upon leaving the cafeteria, I stay my ground for a moment to calm down... For all I know, this could be some kind of trap set up by her.. I don't have any idea what she's planning, but she's obviously got some kind of agenda. I'm upset, angry still.. But I'll go about this with reason. I walk to the console at the entrance to the Evoker hallway and put in her name.The phone rings once as she picks up, she was expecting this.I see her on the feed, her bangs have been curled and she wears a coy, pouty expression as if she's a child that's been caught being bad.Looking at her chest, I notice that she's only wearing a black lace bra, and in the background, I see the familiar stuffed animals of her room.She's in her room.Her purple eyes regard me almost gently," Ohhh, look who it is! Omar, calling on this little Violet? Whatever can I do for you?"> Hang up.> Bitch, what the hell did you do to Katie?> Violet, I...(Write in)> Mind if I come to visit?> Write in.Secondary> Maintain calm.> Act angry.> Fuck that, I'm angry.
>>23534030Act calm and ask what she did/said to Katie.
>>23533971I know it's the sith code. I'm saying that jedi didn't work out, so sith must, eh?But yes, if you guys want to operate by such philosophies, that's cool.
>>23534030[X] Write in."Violet, quit with the games. They're getting tiresome. If you want to talk to me, just talk to me, I want to talk to you, just don't try to pull off any mindfuckery on me, and don't drag third parties into this. That's all I ask. What is it that you're actually after? Why are you doing this? What do you want from me? Why me of all people?"[X] Maintain calm.
>>23534030> I like B but probably less forceful. still be direct though. perhaps just "what did you do to katie">maintain calm. still be forceful though
>>23534066>>23534087I actually like this. changing to this
>>23534066exactly! jedi went horribly wrong, and sith are the opposite so that must go horribly right!
>>23534106Just make sure we don't take up a pupil, or we will probably get raped
>>23534121rule of two. we have to at some pointwhen we're stronger
>>23534163Every damn time a sith dies, its not because of anything but their damn pupil.
>>23534106No, no, no, no, no, no. NO! We do NOT try to channel any concept that fucking big. And I thought we agreed on LaVeyan Satanism/Crowley for philosophy.
>>23534225It was more individualistic mindset than the actual religion or anything, but ya your right.
>>23534178that's how it's supposed to work. master takes on one pupil to train, and when the pupil becomes stonger than them they are able to kill their master. makes the sith stronger over time
>>23534243damn. forgot about that
She's acting like a child again.. it's pissing me off a bit, but I maintain my calm, though I can feel myself glower at her through the feed."Violet, quit with the games. They're getting tiresome.If you want to talk to me, just talk to me, I want to talk to you, just don't try to pull off any mindfuckery on me, and don't drag third parties into this. That's all I ask.What is it that you're actually after? Why are you doing this? What do you want from me? Why me of all people?"Violet's pout fades and her expression grows sharp and serious."Very well then Omar. Meet me at the training sands...""Not your roo-" The feed cuts off.Well, that apparently got her sober.. I wonder why she said the training sands... Now that I think on it, I never see her there.> Head there right away, it's time to talk.> I don't like the smell of this, I'll check her room first.> I'll check on Katie, See if she's okay.> Write in.
>>23534244>Mfw this has already started>mfw fauna is our master>mfw we have to kill faunaWhy..WHY!
>>23534276Head there right away. Time to do whatever
>>23534276[X] Head there right away, it's time to talk.Let's do this. She wants to talk we can talk, if she tries mental fuckery we can set the sand on fire, no problem.
>>23534276>> Head there right away, it's time to talk.Katie said she'd contact us.
>>23534276>head there right away, it's time to talki think she's gonna try to mess with our head as soon as we get there, so we should go in guns blazing before she gets the chance
>>23534325Valid point.Prepare our mind as we go
>>23534300we can kill her immediately after we sex her pussy. is that good?
>>23534276>> Head there right away, it's time to talk.
>>23534343Its better than before I guess.I say we let her have the god child first
>>23534354of course! that sets us up to train our apprentice too!
>>23534390Alright then, its settled. He will be the Alue of this universe.
>>23534426we sith now
"Appetite" 14/25I don't entirely trust her yet, so I begin taking in some of the flow to steel myself against her assault, organizing my thoughts and focusing on my objective. I won't be swayed in this confrontation, I won't let her control me.It takes some time to get to the training sands.I notice the halls are much more desolate than usual and upon my entry, I don't see anyone in the grounds.. I have an eerie feeling about this.. the place has never been empty before..> Wait patiently... She was in her underwear after all..> Vent frustration by burning the sand, is this some kind of trap? Or some kind of joke?> Leave now, I'll find her...> Write in.
>>23534463[X] Wait patiently... She was in her underwear after all..She probably cleared it out for us, might throw goons at us.
>>23534463Just wait, maybe get a hotdog or something
>>23534463>[x] Realize the sense of dread is obviously her doing, and that she likely willed away the people that should be here. Thus, proclaim we know she's there and then wait cautiously.
>>23534463>wait patiently.also as much as i'd like to embrace my anger and all, right about now it'd be good to ignore any emotions we're feeling since they could very well be her doing
Appetite 13/25I remain calm and take a seat on one of the benches. I've felt her assault before, and I realize that I need to ignore my emotions in dealing with this.. For all I know, they're not even mine... She's broken my resistance before after all...I wait pariently and keep myself easy, I figure she must have cleared this place out.. but when?Suddenly, I hear footsteps on the metal floors near the entryway. I hear two pairs. Turning, I see Katie, still with a somber, kind of gloomy expression, and Violet, her expression still as stark and intense as before.Springing to my feet, I feel my anger surge a moment before undermining it.Why did she bring Katie?> I'll ignore the fact that she brought Katie here... Keep myself in check and offer a seat.> It's time to burn this witch, I don't know what she's got planned, but this is a step too far.> I stand my ground and say nothing, I'll let her speak first.> Write in.
>>23534655Ignore and offer her a seat. Lets try to see if we can solve this simply rather than fighting katie
>>23534655[X] Write in."Violet, Katie, good to see the both of you. Violet, I believe you owe the both of us an explanation."
>>23534655bitch using katie as a human shield>it's time to burn this witchno compromising. attatchment will hold you back
>>23534695Dont, she'll make us fight katie
>>23534695No, anything but that. Don't.
>>23534655PLACE YOUR BETS! I'm taking aaaall comers! You heard right folks! 4:1 odds AGAINST Katie being controlled as a puppet. WHO IS MAN ENOUGH TO PLACE THE RISKY BET?!
>>23534695and?seeing as I'm out voted anyway I guess I'll go with C while we try to find a way to get around katie
>>23534780>>23534695No. Lets wait this out, we've got no guarantees yet.
>>23534809that's why i switched to> I stand my ground and say nothing, I'll let her speak first.
>>23534655>Appetite 13/25What's with that bit?
>>23534989Remaining power usage.
>>23535015That's a somewhat new addition.
>>23535026Omar's experienced enough to be aware of how far he is to collapse.And I could keep it hidden, running in the background if you'd like.
>>23535050Oh definitely not, this is great.Should probably eat something soon, fill the tank up. Should've done this first now that we've got this new info.
>>23535050Nah, keep it around. What you said about it being a product of experience is what made me instantly like it.
Appetite 12.5/25"Violet, Katie, good to see the both of you. Violet, I believe you owe the both of us an explanation, please... Take a seat."As Violet gets closer, she flips her curled hair as Katie regards me and then looks away."Why, I certainly do. Glad you decided to ask about the point. Sure took you a bit from my roundabout way." Her tone is condescending.. in a way. Her eyes aren't glowing, and her expression maintains the prior sharpness."Well," I beckon them to sit once more, "Let's fucking have it!"Katie tentatively takes a seat, stealing a sideways glance at me before looking away again. Violet sits between us, though I keep myself 2 people away, watching her carefully with my resistance still up.She doesn't seem to notice, or more rightly, doesn't care about my spacing."Well, to start... As you want to know what this is about... I want out of here.""Out of here? Out of Renaissance?"Violet gives a slight nod," Yes, yes. Out of this controlling, ridiculous thing that calls us lab rats, mercenaries, employees.""And what does Katie have to do with this? Why me?""Ahhh, there's the thing, the rub. You need me as much as I need you. . . And Katie needs you too."I hear a bit of a sound from the oddly quiet Katie as Violet says her name, but a sharp glance and a flicker of purple, and she's quiet.> Stop doing that...> What does Katie have to do with this? She needs me?> I've had enough of Violet's shit... Time to burn the witch.> Write in.
>>23535066It's related to power use in that to shift, reinforce, or quicken, he needs to "feed"When he's "Lost his appetite," he's beyond the realm of safety in using his power.In other words, it's the point that his body starts to break down from overuse, converting the flow gets fucked up, etc.
>>23535094>stop doing thati realy want to kill her though. she might try to break Katie's mind when we attack if that's even possible. fucking psychics
>>23535094>[x] "If you keep doing that to Katie, I'm lighting your hair on fire. I think a bald Violet would be pretty damn funny."
>>23535094Oh hey we have the same goal. This is good right?Tell her to chill the fuck out and that we have no love for this place either. Tell her that if we want to do this we need a plan, and frankly more people.
>>23535094[X] Write in."Violet, I asked you quite politely to stop with the mindfuckery. Let Katie speak.And why do I need you? Why does Katie need me? Why do you need me?">>23535182I kinda like this place actually, staying, fixing it up, far better option than trying to run.
>>23535094> Stop doing that...Tell her to stop that shit with Katie.Violet might have some actually good points here, but until she stops that shit I say we don't talk.
>>23535149Question: Is it going down because of actual, physical hunger or because we're fucking pissed?Maybe both?
>>23535182rule of two tho
>>23535191Why? They use us, control us, and almost kill us daily. Fuck this place. If we can get enough people we can start our own order called "Leave us the fuck alone"
I'm pretty sure most of us want to break out of here eventually, but I don't think many of us agree with Violet's methods. Quite frankly, she doesn't seem to have the mind for large-scale or long-term planning. Then again, neither does Omar... In fact it seems like long term planning is actively discouraged at this facility, they foster impulsiveness with the self contained economy they've set up here.
>>23535216It's going down because you guys decided to put up resistance to Violet's evocation.As a second action you guys can opt to shut it off, but Violet will see.
>>23535259>As a second action you guys can opt to shut it off,Would it be possible to try and do some sort of recycling?Somehow take any remains of our power usage, if any, and turn that into new power?(I might be forgetting some simple shit said in the last couple of threads or even in the beginning one, but it's an idea)
>>23535259god damn. she's wearing us out so she can have Katie kick our ass.stand up, grab Violet, run into the sand away from katie and go phoenix while we're still holding her
>>23535226It's not so bad, and running is far worse than staying here. We run we'll be pursued by Renaissance and every single world government out there, no place to hide, it'll be a bitch.
>>23535294Don't act so god damn impulsive.
>>23535294Calm the fuck down.
>>23535300Thats why I say we plan first, get more allies. Violet is one that I've wanted on our side for awhile, and it seems its likely we got her. If we get enough of the big guys we wont have to run. Hell we can take over
>>23535300We have no guarantee of that, don't operate on conjecture.
>>23535344Don't "but guise" me. I'm not your guy, buddy.
>>23535356hes not your buddy friend
>>23535371He's not your friend, guy.
>>23535344While I do like the idea of just murdering Violet (I really fucking do), she may legitimately have some points here about why we should team up.I'll give her a chance to make her case.And if we don't like it, we'll see what Burnt Violet looks like.
>>23535417I'm just getting worried, cause I can't remember how many "points" it takes to go/maintain phoenix mode, and I don't want that option to be ruled out because we sat around talking
>>23535469She'd be stupid to kill her only way out. We wont have to fight
>>23535427I'm not your infinitum, frater
>>23535469I doubt going super-fast ape shit crazy will take much points.
>>23535505I'm not your frater, amicus.
>>23535532I'm not your amicus, pathicus
12/25"Stop doing that, I told you, no mindfuckery, and we talk.""Why does it matter? You're putting up a resistance to it, and Katie wants to be quiet..." Violet shifts her gaze over to Katie, "Isn't that right?"Katie nods, looking away again."Violet.. This isn't what I agreed to."With a haughty roll of her eyes, she concedes," Very well." She closes her eyes.Katie still doesn't speak, yet I go on."Why do I need you? Why does Katie need me? Why do you need me?""Full of questions, hm? Here's something.. During one of the times that you were put into a certain... lack of consciousness... You had a little operation... There's a chip at the base of your brain stem that will not only track you via satellite, but deliver enough of a self detonation that it'll render even you catatonic."I feel a chill through my body. That would explain why they trust us to go on missions, why no one wants to leave but.. "Why have I not been told this?""Because, my dear, dear Omar..." Her eyes remain closed, and her expression is flat, not matching her voice," They figure if you chose betrayal, you don't deserve a second chance. Such is the nature of how much Renaissance fears us.""And how does.. this involve me?"She finally smiles," Because there's a way to deactivate the chips... I need to get the resident Supervisor under my control. He's imbued his soul into the chips, and just the same, I can use him to destroy them.. It's the reason why no one can do anything about it.""And Katie?"Katie finally speaks up, Violet's eyes remain closed," I.. I want to leave too..""K-Katie?"She nods," I want to leave.. The... the other me that you know.. They made Violet do that to me... She undid it so that I can talk to you, for real.. It hurts.. All this bullshit.." Katie begins to start crying," It really hurts Omar.. I want to stop, there's nothing fun about this."
>>23535546Oh heeeeell no, I'm not your pathicus, futatrix.
>>23535593Alright. Ive now lost my shit. Everything is a fucking lie. Time to fuck this place up. Tell her we will help but that we free everyone and form a nation free from these shit fucks
>>23535633And even if it isnt, fuck this place
Violet begins to frown slightly, I swear she's about to cry herself, but it's only a moment and it's gone.This... I...> I'll help Violet, I may not like her, but she's my ticket out of here... What do I need to do?> I refuse, I need to stay here.. Renaissance needs to change, but she could very well destroy this.. facility.> Kill her, I don't trust her, this has got to be some kind of goddamn lie.> Write in.
>>23535593"Wait, I turn into a being made entirely of fire. No chip implanted in my neck could withstand that. I can melt tungsten, the material with the highest known melting point. Isn't that what these walls are? A chip, made of copper, or gold, or some other similarly conductive metal, even if it was encased in some kind of protective cocoon, would be slagged immediately."
>>23535633make our own nation? like spartacus?
>>23535659Help>>23535666Fuck yeah. take over the faculty, hunt down rogue overs that are being dicks, provide sanctuary to those that aren't. I'm on the fucking hype train now negroes
>>23535659[X] I refuse, I need to stay here.. Renaissance needs to change, but she could very well destroy this.. facility."Violet, I can't leave like this. If we escape from this place, we might succeed, we might get hunted down like dogs. But no matter what everyone else here is going to get hurt, we won't be able to do a single damn thing to help them.I want to change this place, but running won't solve anything."
>>23535659>> I'll help Violet, I may not like her, but she's my ticket out of here... What do I need to do?Throw something out like "But I expect you to stop manipulating allies, the rest of the people here I could care less, but stay out of my mind, and if Katie ask you to, stay out of her mind as well."
>>23535469For an evolution shift, it costs 5For a concept shift, it costs 2 +1 per post.For Reinforcement it costs 2+ 2 per postFor Quickening it costs 3 for the post that it's used.To acquire a new form, it costs anywhere from 5-15'For Phoenix, it's been acquired and it's an evo shift to get into, and concept upkeep.
>>23535659i fucking hate her.> help violet>>23535682you know what happened to Spartacus and his followers right?
>>23535725They died heroes and were remembered for the rest of eternity so far?
>>23535716oh cool. i recalled it being more expensive. thanks... buddy
>>23535742Not your buddy, Over.
>>23535610the fuck? i aint yo futatrix, puta>>235357416000 crucified on the Via Appia simultaneously. bodies were never actually taken down
>>23535769Well all we gotta do is be less shitty then
>>23535725this ask her this
>>23535791Im not your space brother, heretic
>>23535659> Kill her, I don't trust her, this has got to be some kind of goddamn lie.I vote this.I waited for her to give an answer, and I don't really feel hers was sufficient enough.
>>23535794>less shitty>than spartacusk
>>23535854Were fucking superheroes
>>23535849if she's telling the truth and we make too much comotion we're fucked... but that one anon did have a point, how the fuck is the chip still intact?
>>23535862yeah but niggers>account repoody
>>23535879but what about?
>>23535910Fuck man, too soon.We are so far off track in this side conversation...
>>23535862and how do we know spartacus wasn's an super hero?
>>23535960Did he ever turn into a human torch?
I'll help Violet, I may not like her, but she's my ticket out of here... "I'll help you."Violet opens her eyes and stares at me deeply, as if she's witnessing me for the first time," Excellent, the-""I expect that you stop manipulating allies though, rest of the people, I could care less.. Stay out of my mind, and if Katie asks you to, hers as well.""My, my, you speak as though I can read thoughts... While... I can sense your emotion through the flow... Reading is better done by an animist. And I don't go in anyone's mind, my dear Omar...""Whatever, just stop trying to control us.""As you like it.""What do you want me to do? And how is the chip even still intact with what I've done?""Well, Omar.. that''s why I'm interested in you... With that power of yours, you should be able to resist the chip to some degree... however it should be in tact due to the Supervisor's small possession. As I stated before.""Are you saying.. that he's an Over?"Violet gives a roll of her eyes," Could've been smarter, yes, he could've been smarter.""Ok, that's rude.""Well, sorry..." She resumes her normal playful posturing.""As for what I want you to do, I want you to create a spectactle. You'll need to go on something of a rampage, enough that the supervisor steps in. That burning form of yours should do the trick.. However, I should warn you.. Most of the other Overs here are quite comfortable... I've heard of the loss of your moth-"Don't you dare bring her into this," I say as I clutch the ash-pendant around my neck."Very well. Though, I figure yoy'd have no love for this place either."And you?"Violet rises, brushing her dress down as she bends over and stares deeply into my eyes," Why, I'm sick of being controlled." She begins to walk away before stopping abruptly, my eyes had been following her and only now do I notice Katie staring at me."Omar, would you like to get to know the real Katie? Or is the happy one what you want?"
> Wait, I have more to ask [Write in](options bellow will dismiss Violet)> I'd like to know the real Katie...> As much as I'd like the real one, we need the happy one for now.> I like the happy one... I... I don't mind.> It's Katie's choice.(save for this one)> Write in.
>>23536039>> It's Katie's choice.
>>23536039[X] I'd like to know the real Katie..."The truth, no matter how unpleasant."
>>23536039> I'd like to know the real Katie...but> It's Katie's choice.
>>23536039I'd liek ot know real Katie, but we should let her choose> it's her choicealso let down mental block, see if Violet pulls anything, jsut as an experiment
>>23536039Here choice, also ask more questions about allies. Who else does she think will be with us?
"I'd like to know the real Katie..."I decide to take the risk, and stop my feed to resist her powers. To trust her as much to test her.Violet raises an eyebrow at this, yet I continue."However, the choice is hers."I look to Katie and she wipes her face with one of her short sleeves, regarding me sadly with her green eyes, frowning slightly.," You leave it up to me... Heh.. I..." She looks to Violet," I don't want him to know the real me yet."I'm taken aback a bit," Wh-""You don't know the real me, and you shouldn't. I didn't lie before, about what I came from before coming here.. There's too much of that in this... In the real me. And I need to be the happy little test-taker for Renaissance or they'll think that Violet went against her orders.""I... I see..." She really thought this through... In the same light, it seems she's serious about getting out of Renaissance."Ready now Katie?" Violet locks her eyes on the redheaded girl sitting on the bench... The one I don't really know...She nods, and stares back at Violet, that purple glow returning."Look into my eyes.. You're getting sleepy... Sleepy... To the border of your consciousness.. You see a girl there. Her smile is brighter than yours... You will wear her smile.. You will feel her joy... You will don her outlook, that life is a game. You are that joyous little girl that you want to be." Violet's eyes stop glowing at the end, and Katie's smile returns.With a swift grab of my mutated hand, she says,"Omar, It's ok, I'll show you in the future, do you want to play with me?" That bright smile I remember has returned.. however it seems so.. strange now..."Viole-""I'll speak with you later, Breakfast tomorrow..." She heads for the entryway."Oh, and Omar..." She turns from the doorway of the chamber. " If you cross me, the last thing I'll do is break you..."She's gone.> Play with Katie.> Return to my room.> Ask Wallie/Kill/Lock/Elizabeth about this... Can I trust them?
> Write in.I notice that Violet didn't seem to try to control me...
>>23536367Play with Katie, we need to get better before this shit goes down. We should also probably talk to fauna about what shes thinks as she is the only one that can kill us.But first, fight Katie so she knows taht we don't think different of her
>>23536404What she thinks of the company. Gotta be subtle.
>>23536412Actually, that may be a good distraction. Ask to spar with her, have it 'accidentally' get out of hand, and they company will think nothing of it.Still ask her what she thinks of the company first though
>>23536422wait, did Violet want us to start the comotion now? i think we should get some food first and refil our power points, but this could be a good way of starting it when the time comes
>>23536468Not right now, but Im saying we should visit Fauna before we start the shit storm for both the reason of figuring out what she thinks, and a possible commotion.
>>23536367> Play with Katie.
>>23536498kk> play with katie
For playing with Katie, as we've spared with her before, I'll offer the option of advancing ahead and giving the results.> Full spar.> Speed Spar.Up to you folks.
>>23536569> Speed Spar.I feel the need.
>>23536727Need for Tweed: Continental Drift.Because stereotypical Geography teachers wear tweed.
With Violet gone, I decide that I should humor Katie with a spar... To show her I don't think any differently of her.. However on the inside, I can't help but feel that it's wrong somehow.. and I can't shake what I know about the state of her body literally being held together with her soul... It makes me spite this place all the more.We clash in the sands as some other Overs come in and the overall activity in the training sands resumes.Katie's armor is much thicker and resilient this time, however I've gained some prowess at reinforcement, enough to not feel her attacks all that much, however I'm unable to damage her beyond anything superficial. I feel like I'm unconsciously holding back, then again, she might too.Our match ends with sleight of hand as she forces me off of my feet with sand and pins me under her weight, but more, locking me with her power.On top of me, Katie laughs cheerfully as the sand on her body melts away, slipping down our forms and into the rest of the field.Her green eyes lock onto my brown eyes and she seems to have gotten some kind of an idea. She leans down to plant her lips onto mine...Appetite 5/25> Accept the kiss, I.. like her after all.> Refuse, this isn't right, this isn't her.> Refuse, I'm interested in Violet.> Refuse, I'm interested in Fauna> Write in.(I've gotten a bit better at fighting animists, Katie controls her own body as much as her environment, I've become more mindful of this. Should I fight an Animist, I'll pay close attention to their medium and my surroundings.I'm also still struggling a bit with Reinforcement... it seems that it's my shortcoming.. My right arm still won't go all the way back to normal..)
>>23536781Accept, but ask her not to do it again until after all of this shit storm goes down
>>23536781> Accept the kiss, I.. like her after all.I mean, we might like other girls too, but that doesn't stop us from liking her.Also, we should just chop that arm off and grow a new one.
>>23536781> Accept the kiss, It looks right if any one is watching
>>23536781> Refuse, this isn't right, this isn't her.Yeah, this isn't really her. Too weird to get a kiss.
I lay still and feel her lips press against mine gingerly, I return, though something in me does feel that it's a bit wrong.. She pulls back and gets off me, getting back onto her feet with a bit of a twirl."Omar, Omar..." She says my name with a slight giggle.I get up and she closes in on my, grabbing my hands and looking into my eyes again, I want to tell her to stop..."It's okay silly.. I'm still in here, this... this is still me. I know you feel weird about this... But.. Don't worry, okay?""How... How do you know about how I feel?"Closing one eye for an extended wink she laughs at me again," Don't you listen? Animists can sense how people feel.""Ah... R-right..."Is there anything I'd like to ask her?> No, I'll return to my room.> No, I need to talk to Fauna now.> Yes,[ Write in speech.]> No, [Write in next action]
>>23537040>> Yes,[ Write in speech.]what about now think very hard about tacos
>>23537127Seconding, but I want to ask her about the shrimp arm and ways to fix it.
>>23537158We'll ask her multiple things
>>23537040> No, I need to talk to Fauna now.Go see what's new with Fauna, maybe try and discretely ask her things about Renaissance.
"Right... Well, I've got to be going. I need to speak with someone." As I begin to leave, Katie grips my hand tightly."Don't get them. Whoever it is. We can't trust anyone right now." Katie's voice is a singsong as she gives her grim warning. I only feel all the more unsettled by this version of her...."R-right... It's just some basic stuff... like about my arm here.. that you're holding."Nothing wrong with it... It's just a bit shelled up, hm? " She giggles and lets go."Take care now Omar."I bid her the same and take my leave to see Fauna.Once out of the training sands, I realize that i'm not even sure whether she's returned from her mission yet.. Hell, she's always been the one to find me after all... I wonder if she'd even want to talk to me...Now that I think about it, I wonder if she knows about the chip... and why... why did she tell me to hide my ability to evolve?> Look up Fauna's room via console.> Call Fauna on the Console.> drop by Fauna's haunts... Then again, does she really have any?> Write in.
>>23537380well if the chip is in our head we should move our brain to our chest
>>23537380[X] Call Fauna on the Console.>>23537430Please don't try this, I can see so many things going wrong.
>>23537380> Call Fauna on the ConsoleSee if she's there or not.
From the training sands, I head to the nearest console, which is in the hallway that leads to the Butterfly chamber/ water strider room, and one that I'm not really sure what the symbol is...I put in Fauna's name on the console and it rings. It keeps ringing and right when I'm ready to give up on the seventh, I see Fauna's masked form on the video feed.For a moment I'm speechless, as I kind of didn't expect her to pick up, my words hang in my chest long enough for her to lose patience."Not even going to say hello? It's been a minute, you freaking shit," She sounds almost amiable... "I heard you fucked yourself up after I left. At least you didn't cost me any more creds. What do you want?"Uhh... Yeah... Right... What did I call her for?> Ask about my mutated arm.> Ask about what she thinks of Renaissance.> Ask if we can meet in person.> Write in.I have so many questions...
>>23537573> Ask about my mutated arm.And>Ask if we can meet in person.
>>23537573[X] Ask if we can meet in person.
>>23537573> Ask about my mutated arm.> Ask if we can meet in person.hey could you take a look at this for me ?
I raise my mutated right hand, I've noted that it functions perfectly as a human hand.. however its appearance is obviously strange, alien... it's been bothering me a bit."I wanted to ask you about this, it's stuck like this, I can't make it normal anymore."Fauna is silent for a moment."Such is the nature of shifting like this. You'll need to find some rea- Actually.... Just come to my room, we'll talk here.""What were you going to say?""Nothing, just come to my room okay? I'll be able to help you with that bullshit a lot better here.""Well, where is your room?""I'm in the northern wing of the facility. My quarters are officer-quarters, unlike scrub quarters like you and the rest of your lot. Takes massive credits, and a bunch of high-rank missions. Anyway, get her ass moving. I'll give you clearance."I hadn't even known of the Officer Wing... that would explain why I don't really see Fauna around even when she is here...(That's all for tonight folks, good night!I'll resume tomorrow night at 7:30 pm -8 utc!)
