Rolled 16You walk past your sister and Charles and make for the exit, it is only when you stand ready to leave that you notice Nathaniel kneeling on the ground before a mound of earth to the far right of the room. His grave. >Nathaniel, we have to go!>Leave>other
>>24325496Let sleeping dogs lie. SALLY FORTH!
>>24325496>Nathaniel, we have to go!He has been a useful pawn. We should preserve him.
>>24325496Lets help him move his corpse.I'm pretty sure doing so will help reveal who his murderer was, and right now that's the only thing I still give a shit about.
>>24325496>Nathaniel, we have to go!I bet this is the part where he suddenly remembers how he died.
>>24325496>Nathaniel, we have to go!
>>24325496THAT FUCKING TRIDENT IS A PHYLACTERY!
>>24325496We have to go, nathaniel. Move.we'll discover someone killed him won't we? and Maud will knock us out and take the trident, won't she?
>>24325496>Nathaniel, we have to go!>Leave, whether he follows or not
Rolled 25“Nathaniel, we have to go!” you shout before turning to the exit. Roll 1d100>:D
>>24325558>We'll discover someone killed himWasn't that the whole point of the mystery? Like Bergle and Trib were his classmates when Nathaniel was alive, and it's probably related to Trib's unbreakable curse?Maud can fuck herself with the Trident, I want at least some answers to make sense.

Rolled 36From the mound of earth where you plucked the Trident something rises beneath it, the debree fallings aside as as something within sprouts from the ground. The whole cavern shakes as water begins to jet out from the walls. “Millicent!” shouts Maud with worry, grabbing Charles by the robe and pushing him into a run. The unfurling giant mass reveals itself in the light. A giant golemn with emerald gems for eyes and sapphire fangs. You can’t tell if it’s living or made of stone, it turns to you aggressively, arms and wings spreading wide. It gives a feral roar that shocks you to to the bone. You have the iniative to make a quick decision. >Run for dear life>Make sure Maud, Charles and Nathaniel are safe and ahead of you first>Stall the Golemn so the others can get away>other
>>24325728OH SHIT! You're right!
>>24325729>>Make sure Maud, Charles and Nathaniel are safe and ahead of you firstNo one else dies this year. there will be fucking happy memories, even if I have to change the fundamental nature of this quest to do it
>>24325729>shouts Maud with worry...Alright, lets stall.
>>24325729>Make sure Maud, Charles and Nathaniel are safe and ahead of you first
>>24325729>Run for dear lifeOn the way, practice our sad and surprised face for when we 'learn' that those assholes got killed.
>>24325729At least Maud and Charles. We can always build Nathaniel another body if this one gets destroyed. Also, run for dear life.
>>24325729>Make sure Maud, Charles and Nathaniel are safe and ahead of you firstI'm not too sure about Nathaniel, though. The living are the priority. Run for dear life.
>>24325744you mean: "even if we have to destroy a centuries old golem in fistcombat". Do this. think of a useful spell.
>>24325744Maud; We just learned that she has been lying to us for months and essentially completely betrayed us.Charles; Kind of a tool.Nathaniel; No longer very useful.Why risk our lives for them?
>>24325744For fuck sakes... it's gonna happen. No second year...
>>24325729run from the Indiana jones theme ride!
>>243257294. Maud, Blast this thing with me, I want a piece of it.I want to know how he made that...*admiration in eyes*
>>24325785Bombarda on the ceiling above it, we're under the lake. I hate myself so much for this plan>>24325790Because it's the right thing to do!>>24325799Like hell it won't, we haven't come this far to give up now
>>24325785We'll great our own spell. CAST FIST, MILLIE! CAST IT!
"Run, sister! I'll hold him off.">Stall the golem.
>>24325828I like your idea. DO IT!
>>24325729>Run for dear lifeLike we care about other people right now.Charles is a dick and a bully.Maud played us for 6 months and betrayed us for no other reason than she hates us.Nathaniel started all this shit and he's already dead so what could even happen to him.
>>24325822Blast nathaniel, make him take over the golem.
>>24325833Hello, new face.
>>24325729>>Make sure Nathaniel is safe and ahead of you firstFuck traitorous sisters, and lame-ass fat-rolls. The ghost gets a pass for now.
>>24325828Since when have we ever cared about 'the right thing to do?' We're Ravenclaw, and we're fiercely loyal to people who have worked their way into our good graces. Or, in other words, none of these people.
>>24325790Second>>24325744Bullshit>>24325831Yes>>24325729A chance at last, petrify both of themGolem might pick up on them, which might stall us some more time.I am completely okay with those dying and keeping our secret for eternity to themselvesTechnically>Run for dear life

>Make sure Maud, Charles and Nathaniel are safe and ahead of you firstNone of this revenge bullshit. We've got 6 more years ahead of us and I'm not going to let our anger ruin our lives anymore than it already is.
>>24325877goddamn i'm drunk
>>24325927I say, let the magic flow.
>>24325927Maud has a good Bombarda spell, if you cast one at the same time it could knock it over, stagger it, or break it even. WIth a good roll that is....
>>24325828>Right thing to doRight thing to do is not hating your sister over your psycho parentsRight thing to do is not letting your sister suffering constantlyRight thing to do is not holding her hand when she is vulnerableRight thing to do is NOT BETRAYING THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN YOU WHILE THEY DID NIT BELIEVED IN THEMSELVESRight thing to do is, Right thing to do is ,;_;
>>24325927Even a good person at heart can't take that much bullshit and still sacrifice themselves for the person who made them suffer for six months out of nothing but petty spite.That's like comic book superhero levels of good person.
>>24325927Good heart or no, there's only so much any one person can put up with before they decide to not risk they're lives for the people who betrayed them.Well except for Nathaniel, but dying's never hurt him before.
>>24325959Being wronged does not make you right, man.
>>24325729>>Make sure Maud, Charles and Nathaniel are safe and ahead of you first

THEN LETS BUILD A BETTER FUCKING FUTUREwe lost everything once, and she did it because she was jealous of what we had, sure we're mad now but we can fix this. we can make her ok

>>24325998That's not a valid justification for this bullshit dude.
>>24326002this nigga's got it.
I don't suppose we could pull of an instinctive fiendfyre? We did pull off a crucio, after all.Alternatively, could we transfigure some obstacles or something? That would give the group time to retreat properly.
>>24326002We've been moral up to now. And it's really really fucked us over.
ok seriously why is it taking so long to GTFO ?
>>24326045Oh, being moral has fucked us over has it? Not our dickbag family or some insane professor?Do you know what they call people who obsess over a perceived pattern that isn't actually related to the situation?Crazy.
>>24326045And that's no reason to give upSeriously, giving up on EVERYTHING we've worked for just because it's a little difficult?Even when we were at our worst, Olivia and Robert turned up because of the work we did when we were on the good karma train, if nothing else comes from it, having friends we can rely on at the end of this is a worthy reward
>>24326002>>24326002Okay maybe petrifying is a little bit overreacting, not that she ever put us in a life/death situation or some--EXCEPT WE ALMOST GOT KILLED BY A CRAZY, IMPERSONATING PSYCHO.She could have keep us out, that I would forgive.She could have not interfere with our letters, but that is also forgivable.But we were fuckin dying man,And why did we got isolated from our dear friends, the ones so precious that we have/had?Because random Slytherin bastard pissed us off.What was that dipshit doing there?Why would he even bother?>Maud is the cancer that is killing the MillieYou know how to suppress cancer.
>>24326130>You know how to suppress cancer.Killing yourself in a rather painful process and regretting doing it up till your deathbed.Yeah. I've seen a man go through that. Shit sucks.
>>24326094By god, we're gonna make sure Maud and that arsehole get out safe even if we die trying.
>>24326130no, because we don't need to murder someone to do itJESUS CHRIST SHE'S ELEVEN AND NO MATTER HOW BAD IT GETS, NO MATTER WHAT WE DO, SHE'S OUR FUCKING SISTERWe can be catty as fuck and never see her again if the anons will it, but seriously, dooming her to be crushed to death here isn't the answer
Why don't we try to wingardium leviosa the golem? I mean, he'd float and we could fling him on the other side of the cave while we skedaddle.Or shout at Maud to Bombarda him/the ceiling.
>>24326204it doesn't work like that.
>>24326204there's an upper limit to how much you can lift based on your raw magical potentialit's a building-sized golem of solid metal
>>24326194thank you for arguing with them. I just ignore the kill everyone posts.
>>24326246It is my pleasure, if you don't try and get them to understand WHY killing everyone is a bad idea, they'll just keep saying itand even if you ignore them, OP might not
>>24326194We're not dooming her. We're just not going out of our way to save her. She's closer to the exit than we are, she'll probably be fine.
>>24326222>>24326242Ah, well. I suspected it might be too good to be true.Run for dear life, tell Maud to Bombarda the entrance. If Nate doesn't get moving then we'll leave him behind.
Wait...oh damn it.We're supposed to use the Trident, aren't we? It was keeping this thing sealed up. Either that, or it can reveal a method for defeating this thing.>>24326130The psycho wasn't her fault: We joined the contest of our own free will, and thus got ourselves involved. I also doubt she intended for anything like the Crucio incident to occur: She just thought we would get angry and body bind him or something.Seriously, we can decide whether to forgive her or get our vengeance later. We still have that blackmail about her Hufflepuff, our parents will not like what she did to us, and it's not like we can't curse her in a less fatal situation.She's family, and she's apparently worried for our survival. Killing her is just excessive.
Rolled 55You let the other run past you for the exit, more water floods into the cavern at an even faster rate and the golemn stomps closer. With the absence of Maud’s light fading the seventy or so small golemns soar into the air, squabbling angrily. Charles and Nathaniel disappear down into the tunnel. Maud stops. “Millicent come on!” >Bombarda the ceiling then get the fuck out>Try to use The Trident in some way>other
>>24326282> We're supposed to use the Trident, aren't we? It was keeping this thing sealed up. Either that, or it can reveal a method for defeating this thing.Now that's a clever idea. WHy no do this?

>>24326289Grip the Trident with our bare hands.Ask Maud why she's pretending to care.
>>24326312I'd advocate messing with the trident but we have ZERO idea of how it works and absolutely no time to fuck around>>24326331you want to start an argument now?!
>>24326289Other?What other option is there.
>>24326289Can we roll to sense magic or something on the trident or will that take time? If no than sense magic.If yes then forget it and get the hell out of dodge.
>>24326331oooh, nice"What do you care? you tried to get me killed this whole year! Run!"
>>24326340No better time.All of a sudden she's concerned about us again?
>>24326340you don't have siblings, do ya?

>>24326093>>24326002>>24326094She is nothing to us.If it was Olivia, you can check how protective Millie should be over her in archive.If it was Joel, it was worth the risk.Maud can suck thousand cocks, by the gods I thought she would do that for us, I thought maybe she would do that for her little sister.>>24326094> little difficultLife/death situationMillie would/should not risk her life, for a miserable pile of jealousy.>>24326194>murderWe are not a golem>>24326246I'm not saying we should kill them.But taking the slightest risk for such abominations, I don't know how you can even consider this?Millie is not evil.She is not Lawful Stupid either.>>24326282>We're supposed to use the Trident, aren't we?

>>24326364yes, and my sister would slap me if I started bickering WHILE GIANT MONSTERS ARE FUCKING CHASING US>>24326387Honestly, we are never going to agree are we? Therefore, I propose we table this argument for now and take it up at a time when fucking about won't get us beaten to death by robots
>>24326364>>24326356>>24326354>>24326340I recommended we do something similar to this earlier, with the ultimatum that we wouldn't have actually gone through with.Still an option, but a bad one at this point in time. They're waiting on you now, so go.

Rolled 32617You feel yourself begin to hyperventilate as the sight of the masses of water mixed with the hellish approach of the legion of Golemns. They screach and wail, eyes angry and wild as they soars down to nab and claw at you. The daddy golemn is slow yet covers many meters with every step, deep throaty roar resounding through the cavern. Hands trembling you draw the Trident and hold it up into the air. “MILLIE WE HAVE TO GO NOW!” shouts your sister, grabbing you by the shoulder with one hand and the Trident with the other.

Rolled 70838You stand within a world of white that stretches out endlessly in all directions as far as your eye can see. You’re robes are clean and your hair no longer clinging to your face. You look around, there is nothing for you to see beyond the white, a quiet confusion sweeps over you as you struggle to make sense of the situation. Your sister is nowhere to be seen. You blink. Three children stand before you, maybe a little older, maybe younger. They’re dressed in Hogwarts robes. There is a pretty girl with short strawberry blonde hair, a thin faced boy who looks at his shoes, his black hair gelled back, and on the third is similar to the other boy but unmistakeably someone you know but you can’t make out where you know him from. >Where am I?>Who are you?>Where is my sister?>other

>>24327516The last thread? Pretty much deserves it, to be honest.
>>24327516a lot of people are mad, i recall a few who came in earlier complaining about multiple threads, and some tripfags got fed up with last nights events and left.
>>24327555Probably the same cunt that got dumble banned. Along with the derailing of last night's thread.Real mature, man.
>>24327516The last thread was downvoted too. That thing with Maud pretty much left everyone upset to a certain extent. Just let it be and ride it out. We'll get this mess sorted out in the end.
>>24327571Yeah, nobody can think the last thread was a good thread. But this one is down too.
>>24327602>Probably the same cunt that got dumble banned.I'm pretty sure the person who got dumble banned was dumble himself. By breaking the rules, you know?
>>24327625you have to be reported to get caught
>>24327625Fuck that! I'm intoxicated and moody as fuck! RAAAAAAAAWR!
>>24327571It didn't start well, sure, but it's the beginning of the climax. Major events are occurring, and it's being down voted because certain people (who caused a lot of the problems with it) decided to ragequit, rather than see where it was all going.
“Time is of the essence, I really need to get back, I-” before you can finish your sentence Bergle cuts you off. “Don’t worry, we’ve got loads of time to kill, It’s magic after all” he says with childish glee. “I’m really confused, we have you brought me here?” you ask, feeling the cool breeze across your face, smelling the blades of grass. The illussion is so real you think you would only just be able to tell the difference. “Because this is what you need to see” says Trib in a sing-song manner. “Watch”The three students suddenly break out into a raptuous argument as if you were not there at all. You realize that you are watching a memory brought to life. “Well Nathaniel’s hidden it so hah! Jokes on you!” says Trib, crossing her arms and walking away in a huff. “Goddamit” says Bergle to his brother “What the hell did you do that for?”“I’m sorry” he says“What was all that crap about an An Unbreakable Bond? You know that’s some dark magic right?”“How can it be dark magic if it means we love each other. We’ll always be together. She’s agreed to it” says Bergle’s brother. “Whatever, we going to find Nathaniel and the Trident, tonight”The memory fades for another. (more coming)
>>24327655Chill, we don't need MORE arguing, especially when that's what the chucklefucks wanted
>>24327602>Probably the same cunt that got dumble bannedNah, I don't vote-spam. Suptg votes are pointless anyway. Also I'm still here and slept through last night's shitstorm.Kind of surprised that report actually did something though. Go mods.
>>24327698Okay fine...>>24327700>Kind of surprised that report actually did something though. Go mods.You sir, are a poopyhead.
>>24327662The beginning of the climax was the thread before last. The last thread was just hours and hours of shitty arguments and drama. There were only two story posts from HPQuest.
Trib and Bergle’s brother stand by the tree, it’s twilight, they hold each other’s forearms and have just finished reciting a vow. They look at one another as star crossed lovers. “I love you” they both say “Forever and always”The memory changes again. Bergle stands before a very much alive Nathaniel who is bloody and bruised, they’re just outside the opening to the tunnel in the forbidden forest. “It’s mine! I found it! I worked hard for it all year!” Nathaniel shoutsBergle draws his wand and uses the killing curse, piercing him straight below the rib. The memory changes one last time. Trib and the two Bergle’s stand within the cavern with their wands held in the air to keep the golemns at bay. The drive the Trident into the earth and look to Nathaniel’s grave. “We must use obliviate on ourselves, only one of us can remember” says Bergle, he takes out his wand and uses it on Trib, and then his brother. With blank stares Bergle leads his two near-unconscious friends out of the cavern. The memories stop. You’re returned to the world of white. The trio stand before you. >You forgot everything? That’s why you’re deformed>Bergle you scum>How do I reverse what was done to Professor Trib?>other
>>24327847>>How do I reverse what was done to Professor Trib?Priorities.
>>24327778I'm pretty sure that was the thread before the last thread that was all argument.The last thread (42) started with the Retcon offer and ended with us trying to figure out if the Trident was real.You know, the first thread we had tonight.
>>24327847>>How do I reverse what was done to Professor Trib?And...>> otherHow do I stop the golemns ?
>>24327778A lot of the argument is stemming from there appear to be two schools of thought on Millie now. On group is firm in that Maud is a cunt, and deserves not our help or love from now till a very long time from now. The other school is that Maud deserves our love because she is still our sister no matter how misguided she is. A majority of votes have gone in favor of the screw you maud school, but there is a growing undercurrent for the redemption group. We'll see what happens when we get out of our head.
>>243278473, then 2.
>>24327847>You forgot everything? That’s why you’re deformed>other"But that still doesn't answer the important questions: how do I stop the big golem, and what does the Trident actually DO?"
>>24327847>How do I reverse what was done to Professor Trib?She was pretty nice to us after we almost got killed by Bergle.
>>24327847>>You forgot everything? That’s why you’re deformed>How do I reverse what was done to Professor Trib?>otherWhy'd you all have to get rid of the trident? and if bergle knew where it was, why didn't he get it?...unless he wanted no one to find itGuys, what does the trident do exactly? BESIDES sending me into my own mind
>>24327886These two our good.
>>24327847Other, I'd love to help Trib, but I can't help Trib IF A GOLEM TURNS ME INTO MILLIECAKES!Can I use the trident against it?
>>24327890Truth.For now, I'm just going to say:>How do I reverse what was done to Professor Trib?>Other: How do I stop the bloody golems?
>>24327883you are exactly right sir
>>24327700thats kind of a dick move even for 4chan
>>24327847So Bergle killed Nathaniel so that the Trident would remain hidden and nobody could use it? And that was the same reason he was interfering with the contest and killed the Headmaster and then tried to kill us?That Trident must be some serious shit.>>24327883Oh yeah, that. I was going by suptg and this thread hasn't been archived yet. Anyway, the argument thread deserves its downvotes.
>>24327847"How can I save my sister?"
>>24327878i assume if we make her fall in love with the unnamed brother she will go back to normal
>>24327971>Anyway, the argument thread deserves its downvotes.BUT...There's still major elements that's a part of this story.
>>24327986And it's, unsurprisingly, still a shitty thread despite that.
>>24327971>Anyway, the argument thread deserves its downvotes.Except we're saying that it's not the argument thread that's getting a large amount of downvotes, it's the one AFTER the argument thread.
>>24327986So? It's still not a good thread.>>24328008Yes it is. Last time I checked they were both at -4. And the argument thread had about double the total number of votes. So an awful lot more downvotes.
>>24328041“You forgot everything, that’s why you didn’t keep to your vow?” You say“So did I become old and ugly?” says Trib wincing a little in an amusing way. “Pretty much, but I can fix that, how do I reverse it?”“Go to the tree” says the other Bergle brother “hiddin within the base of the tree is a roll of parchment with the necessary words written upon it as well as the reversal potion” “Will you do that for me?” says Trib “I promise” Trib gives a thankful smile and wraps her arm around the Bergle Brother. “Are you ready to see your sister now?” says Trib “Prepare yourself” says Bergle “We hid the Trident for a reason”>I’m ready>No wait, how do I defeat the golemns?>other
>>24328041thread 41 (argument thread)Its current score is -3 after 47 votes.thread 42 (the one thats being downvoted)Its current score is -2 after 30 votes.we are currently on 43
>>24328041Lets NOT worry about the archive in this thread, if someone is concerned HP can copy everything and make a grand recap thread that has none of the trolling and shitposting and arguing where the story is clear.
>>24328071No, wait, how do I defeat the golems?
>>24328082I'm much too lazy for that.
>>24328071>No wait, how do I defeat the golemns?We need to know this before we leave this dream!
>>2432807842 had some dodgy moments.

>>24328071"How do I defeat the golems? If I die here, I can't save anyone: That includes you, Trib."
>>24328113I'm sure that this anon is a nice and decent fellow. At least he admit of doing it. He's cool on my book for doing that.
“You shoot straight and run lik hell” says BergleThe world changes around you again. You’re standing outside the pet shop with your Dad and Maud, in the exact time and place where you bought Tara. Seeing your Dad again makes your heart soar, but you can’t see his face as he peers into the window inspecting the inside. Maud looks down at you with a sad smile. “Millicent” she says “I’m sorry for everything”>You expect me to forgive you? When we get back, and IF we survive, we’re through. >Say nothing>I...it’s okay. I love you. >other
>>24328131Spamming pointless bullshit in good threads is a dick move. And now he's stopped. And he was only banned for a few hours which is not really that big of a deal. So everything worked out.
>>24328071"How did you find the Trident in the first place?"
Rolled 67>>24328211>Say nothing.Seems like the most normal thing to do right now, maybe we'll forgive her later.

>>24328211I...it's okay. I love you. I'm still hurt, but...it's okay.>I thank she's suffered enough, if she's suddenly done a one-eighty. I'm not sure I want to know what she's been experiencing. Either that, or she's dying because of the Trident and these are her last words. Let's be nice about this.
>>24328211>other"You can't just do that to someone and expect an 'I'm sorry' to patch things up! Don't you have anything else to say?!" Shouting at her.
>>24328211>Say nothingI'm not saying we're through forever. But we sure as hell can't trust her after that. No matter how convincing she is, she was convincing last time. We thought we'd made up last time. And it was a half-year long campaign to make our life a living hell. So we can't just kiss and make up now.

>>24328383Well... GAWD MAUD, LET ME SNAP BACK TO REALITY AND SAVE OUR SORRY HIDES!
>>24328383Reading comprehension. He was telling us to shoot the golems, not Maud.
>>24328412How do we know Maud is not a golem!? I wouldn't put it past her now.
>>24328412well, he did also tell us to prepare ourselves because the trident does something dangerous
>>24328211>say nothingwe have no proof that this is real and she means this.
>>24328435>ahaha.wav.jpgWhy you do this?
>>24328466"I looked in my crystal ball, and I saw us once. We were together, in a room at the Leaky Cauldron, just like you said. I know I did it right, I could see and hear you just as clear as I can now” you say, feeling the weight of her gaze looking down at you. “So how... how could I see something that could never happen?"Maud smiles, laughs and looks up at the sky as she wipes tears from her eyes. “Because that’s what’s going to happen, Millie” she says, stepping close and kneeling, looking up at you. “We’re going to be together,we’re going to go there...but I won’t be the same”>What do you mean?>How is that possible?>Are you dying?>other
>>24328466I think he's trying to tell us something.

>>24328475"You lost me."

>>24328475>What do you mean?She knows her deception of us being disowned will have her disowned herself. The crystal ball showed Millie with her because she won't have the heart to let her kick her out on her own.

>>24328475>but I won’t be the same"But I don't even know what you're normally like! I'm not sure if I ever even met the real you."
>>24328475>Do you have...cancer?
Rolled 41>>24328466>>24328475wut?We don't get the play anymore?If we do,>>What do you mean?
People....do remember that Harry Potter is a setting with magical memory manipulation on the order of many transhumanist settings, and that if a person doesn't like who they are, they can have their memories re-written and their personalities edited to become the person they'd rather be, or do that to someone, right?
>>24328475"While I would like a sister, I wouldn't like a ghost, a voice in my head, or an invalid/someone who is unable to take care of herself. So... keep that in mind before you do whatever it is you think you're doing."
>>24328565>Do you have...MAGIC cancer?
>>24328578I think you can't actually add anything, only take awayit's kind of like a magic lobotomy
>>24328578Why would the person that Maud IS want to become the person we want her to be though?
>>24328627Apparently Trib was still able to become a Potions Professor, so it doesn't look like it deals severe brain damage.
>>24328578The only time we've seen a re-written memory is when Voldemort himself implanted a single memory. It doesn't sound like something a thirteen year old girl would be able to do. Not to mention, she has shown no remorse for her actions outside of whatever is happening in our imagination. The most she could do is wipe her memory, but since her grudge goes back throughout her entire childhood, she would be wiping herself down to nothing.
>>24328648Because she regrets her actions?
“I don’t understand” you say, which has been something you’ve been saying a whole damn lot. “The Trident was made for pureblood slytherins to take knowledge from the other houses. It was Salazar’s way of testing his followers to see if they were worthy. I saw him, he gave me a choice, take all your memories for my own or surrounder mine to the Trident”“You mean you’re going to forget everything?”“I don’t know how” she says, hugging you tightly. “Maybe next time I won’t be such a terrible sister to you. I’m so sorry, I let my jealousy get the better of me. It all got out of hand. I don’t ask that you forgive me, just understand”>Take my memories instead!>Surely there’s something we can do?!>I love you>other
>>24328680I don't know, she seemed genuinely concerned for our safety when the boss golem showed up.
>>24328627Actually, Voldemort, when he was still Tom Riddle, edited the memory of Morfin Gaunt to make him believe he had killed Riddle's paternal family.
>>24328698>Surely there’s something we can do?!
>>24328627No. Remember in Deathly Hallows? Hermione completely rewrote her family's entire history: They thought they were Australian, and presumably had memories to support that.I don't think Maud's going to do this to herself, though. I think the Trident is forcing her to become what we want her to be...if it's just memory modification, that is.Alternatively, it could be something worse. It could be the reason that Nathaniel went crazy. It could be the reason that Slytherin became a pureblood fanatic and left Hogwarts.I guess we'll see.
>>24328627What about legillimancy? I forget exactly what the limits of that are.Well, there's always the Imperius Curse. Makes somebody act exactly how you want them to. Undetectable, unresistable, perfect mind control.
>>24328698"We're sisters, can't we share?"
>>24328698"No. Definitely not. I won't accept this."The Trident can go fuck itself, for all I care.
>>24328698>take my memories insteadthen>I love you
>>24328698>surely there's something we can do?!
>>24328698Break the Trident. Fuck you're damn ultimatums and fuck Salazar Slytherin.
>>24328698"What do you mean everything? Will you forget how to walk or talk or do spells? Will you not be able to still go to school? Will you be able to form new memories?"
>>24328727wait take my vote of >>24328740and replace it with this.
>>24328745if you broke the trident i have a feeling maud would continue to be a cunt
>>24328698>Take my memories instead!I don't want to forgive Maud, but they're all completely shitty memories anyway. And that way she can actually learn from this experience.
>>24328716>>24328722I stand corrected>>24328698>>Surely there’s something we can do?!Are your memories just stored here? Could I get them out if we got a pureblood slytherin to work it?....or do you want to forget?
>>24328698>Surely there’s something we can do?!>other"I refuse to bow down and be ordered about by the shade of a pompous buffoon trapped within a garish and chintzy piece of metal! We survived the Cambodians' Theradra, we'll survive this!"
>>24328740how does this help us? we are the main character and we have years more of quests to do why would you want to take a shotgun to our work.
>>24328756She already regrets her actions, she would have taken our memories if she was truly a cunt. To be honest, losing her memories is a greater risk.You can't learn from a mistake if you don't remember it.
Rolled 43>>24328745Yeah, chuck the Trident right into his fucking face. Cause that's what tridents are for.
>>24328698>>>Surely there’s something we can do?!>>I love you
>>24328740>>24328754Listen, she might be trying to make up for what she did but the fact stands, she created our one bastion of happiness in the entire world and then crushed it under her heel out of spite. I say we can make up with her after she sacrifices her memories to a trident to save us, but not before. Certainly won't be sacrificing ourself for her.You niggas forgive too easily.
>>24328778I said it without thinking.
>>24328698"Are you really going to let the echo of a bitter, jealous, old man tell you what to do? I don't care if I have to shatter the trident to save you, I'm not letting an oversized fork take my sister away from me."
> Surely there's something we can do?!> I love you.If we can't stop this from happening, then, after escaping the golems, we need to research the Trident. If it can steal memories, we can reverse engineer it to transfer them back.
>>24328698"You think an ancient incredibly powerful artifact is a match for the Fauxly sisters?"Smile, we're not going down without a fight.
>>24328798I feel the same way. Often times you just gotta sleep in the bed that you've made to yourself. Maud made her bed and she's deciding to atone. You can't do much...
>>24328804No silly! Tridents are for fishing! They're most useful in fast flowing, shallow waters.
>>24328829What kind of atonement is forgetting your own damn mistake and regret?
>>24328829i think we should cut the whole memory think and run. Just huck the trident back in to the cavern and fucking forget about it. Deal maud slowly uncuntifying and live our damn lives.
>>24328698"You can't go, I still don't understand what the point of involving Charles was!"
>>24328853I thought the get a +20 against certain Roman gladiators?
>>24328829I don't want her to go back to the same person she was before. That person was a cunt.I don't want her to forget all this and not even have to feel guilty about what she did. Not even a single sleepless night.That's not atoning. That's getting away with it.
>>24328863>>24328865Could this work, HPQUEST? Just chuck the trident at the golemn and let the gargoyles and golemn fight in a underwater tomb?
>>24328876Only if you have a net too.
>>24328876only with a tiny but inescapable netcaptcha: full romanfo
>>24328893I mean, it seems like its only interested in the trident. Not us. So, I say to do it. We found the trident. I'm happy with just that. So CHUCK THE FUCKER AWAY!
>>24328911CHUCK THE TRIDENT? WHO'S WITH ME?
>>24328893Well, I don't think the Trident is going to let either of us until one of us loses their memories, or we fight its influence off.At that point, it'd be far better to turn the Trident over to the Ministry.First, so that someone else on the trail of Hogwart's Founder artifacts doesn't come across it.Second, so that everyone can see just what kind of a douchebag Salazar really was.
>>24328924If it saves Maud? Sure.>>24328883Agreed.
>>24328924>>24328911Sorry guys, but not me. I want this thing put on display and let everyone know just what kind of backstabbing dick Salazar really was.
“Surely there is something we can do?” you say, beginning to cry, holding your sister tight. Maud holds you tight then looks up at Dad who still looks idly into the window, an oblivious memory unknowing of what’s really going on. “I know I dissapointed you” she says “I wanted us to be together, to stay in the leaky cauldron, but I couldn’t see past my hate. I love you”“I love you” you say, as the world brightens all around you, sound fading, your embrace becoming soft.“Be careful” she says “I might not be the same”The world fades. The cavern comes crashing back to reality. The golemn ahead of you, the Trident limp on the floor, water rising. You turn to Maud who looks around with a confused expression as if she had just woken up from a deep sleep. 1)Run Maud!2)Run!3)Fend of the Golemn4)Take Trident or leave it
>>24328698"Maud, I'm really glad I got sent to Ravenclaw. Your house is bollocks."
Congratulations Millie! You found the Trident, Your sister loves you again, your parents haven't abandoned you, and your friends are still with you!Everything you wanted!
>>24328956"You! Pick up the trident and run!"
>>24328956Just run with Maud.
>>24328956Grab trident, grab maud, run like fuck. do not allow maud to touch the trident, I'm still for bombarda-ing the roof to stop the golems kicking our asses
>>24328956>>24328981Er 1+3, not 2+3
>>24328992Wait, why wouldn't we let Maud touch the Trident?
>>24328956We need the Trident to get our Maud back, so take it. Then get the fuck out of there. If possible, start shooting the golem while running away, but that's not as important as getting the fuck out of there.
>>24328956>1)Run Maud!>2)Run!>4)Take TridentSo to clarify, we're running, we're telling Maud to run, and then we are also taking the trident, because god damn it we are GETTING A FUCKING REWARD!
>>24328956We can't leave the Trident, we need to make it give us our sister back.
>>24328995fuck, and leave the trident.
>>24329003Because then it'll activate again
>>24329024Looks like 1, 3, and 4 is gonna be the majority. Jumping on the bandwagon.
>>24329028That Trident has our sister's memories in it. Do you really think that's wise?
>>24329053wizards who actually know what the fuck they are doing can fix her.
>>24329040Yeah but it only activated because we were both touching it at the same time.She's still a pureblooded Slytherin, so who knows what it would do.
>>24328981>>24328995>>24329028These are me, ignore my votes.
>>24328956124NOT 3 NEVER 3
>>24329082Thank you for saying that.
>>24328956Grab Maud's hand and run.Take the Trident.
>>243289561) Run Maud!2) Fend off the Golem.4) Take the Trident. It might hold a way to fix her, if she needs fixing. Let's just make sure no one else gets a hold of it: This thing is quite horrific.This thing doesn't belong in a Museum: It belongs in a heavily warded, unbreakable container that we can keep safe from, say, the Ministry (Can you see imagine what they would do with it?).If we leave it here, someone might find a way to retrieve it.
Take the Trident, we'll need it as evidence for all this bullshit.And then we'll hand it over to the school, because I doubt Millie ever wants to see or hear about it ever again.
>>24329075If it works anything like the Pensieve then it proably literally has her memories. Like, inside of it.A skilled wizard like the headmaster or someone of high-tier power can attempt to retrieve them from the trident at a later time, but it's probably going to physically require the trident.
>>24329075Aren't artifacts like a really big deal and are beyond regular magical understanding?I'd rather not take that kind of a risk.
>>24329114I like your trip. Dats a nice trip.
>>24328956Woops, left out the running part.1, 2, 4
>>24329138You know... Running does sound tempting to me now. 1, 2, 4.
>>24329094Even in a continuity where the Chamber of Secrets doesn't exist, Salazar Slytherin still remains an awful AWFUL person.Kudos OP.
>>24329154I'm beat. I'll see you guys tomorrow. Hope it wasn't as utterly disappointing as the last few threads.
>>24329112couldn't we use a pensieve to transfer her memories, now implanted in our head to her?
>>24329172Looks like we'll see the conclusion tomorrow. It wasn't, but people are still steaming mad.
>>24329172no problem, later OP
>>24329172I've got mixed feeling about the whole thing... but not terrible.
>>24329172We get the sister, and a not totally fucked ending, fine by me.
>>24329172>>24329172>>24329172The way I see it, the highly contentious voting on suptg just means that a lot of people REALLY REALLY CARE about your threads!
>>24329172It was alright, but I can't help but feel as if one of the reasons Maud lost her memories is so you never have to explain what exactly she did and how/why she did it....But I guess that's as good as you can manage without some heavy retconning so I suppose I'm alright with it.
>>24329226We might have gotten the sister but it was just handed to us, I don't know. I would've liked to see Millie at least punch Maud a FEW times.
>>24329172See you next thread.Boy I hope we still get to see Maud around. I still wanted to try many stupid hairstyles on her.
>>24329226We might still get the bad end. People want the trident, like myself. I just want Trib to remember and be back to herself. Poor Nate. Fuck Prof. Bergle. His bro sounds cool though.
>>24329172You done right by me at the very least. Good job today HPQ. Get some sleep, take tomorrow off if you need to. I'll be monitoring your twitter.
>>24329172Things are beginning to look brighter again. So I'm good. I was quite devasted before but I assumed there would be some light at the end of the tunnel.
>>24329172See you tomorrow, HPQ.
I kinda hope by memories, it means magical talent.
I just feel so fucking depressed that I let you guys down. Second year, if you're all here, is going to be the best plot I can dream of pulling out all the stops.
>>24329301Is Maud going to be the same year as us now?
>>24329252>>24329242>>24329257think of it this way we might have a river and simon tam relationship with maud for a while
Actually, now that I think about it. That Trident probably has tons of fucking peoples memories in it, probably even of Rowena Ravenclaw herself considering what it was originally made for.The sheer historical significance and amount of knowledge in thing...
>>24329301YFW this popped up in your playlist during the flashback.> http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=uhr_Gv3Q9Mc
>>24329301less twists over more time with more slice of life. everyone will be worshiping you if you can pull that off.
>>24329301Eh, the parallel with our sister's jealousy towards us, and Slytherin's jealousy towards Ravenclaw, and our sister ultimately choosing something differently, that was alright.The only problems I had was the whole 'forging letters' thing seemed to go too far to the point of impossible and nothing about Charles made sense.
>>24329301You didn't let me down. But some of your followers certainly have.
>>24329388You would of let me down if you stopped authoring the quest. I would of picked up the mantel.
>>24329301also for the record you didn't let me down. It was like reading a book and having a character you like die. I'm just gonna roll with where ever the quest goes and hope that we never become evil millie.
>>24329301You're doing fine. A controversial plot twist isn't the worst thing that's ever happened to a story and a lot of your core readership stuck with you. Give year one a glorious sendoff, recharge your batteries and come back with a good year two when you're ready.
Hm, it seems like you could rig up some major exploits if you combined the memory-eating Trident with legimancy.Although I guess that depends on just how much of an unfathomable dickbag Salazar Slytherin was.
>>24329450Same, Maud betrayal pissed me off but its not like there wasn't plenty of reason for it to happen, what with her being the rival and all.
>>24329329Maybe maud becomes a squb because of this, bringing back the squib rights plotpoint.
>>24329301Well, I'LL still be here. This is still one of the better quests on /tg/ right now.
>>24329301>Second year.Oh boy, does that mean I get to draw Millie with a new haircut? Because she obviously wouldn't keep the same hair. Maybe a little longer.
>>24329506I hope not.Like if there was any way way to make people incapable of using magic, don't you think it would be used as an alternative to Azkaban?
>>24329540Since the year is only half over, I hope she just gets stuck in the same year as us, then we can help her study.
>>24329506That would make absolutely no sense, to be honest. I hope OP has emptied his supply of derp moments with the letter thing.
>>24329540It's possible they still use Azkaban because a criminal without access to magic is still a criminal with access to knives, or criminal skillsets and information.Even if there isn't, it's possible a high-powered artifact could do things lower-level magic can't. It's magic, who knows.
>>24329516dude HPQ said he was in it for the long hall just to outlast blatent fetish quest. we are gonna get 7 years of hairstyles
Fuck my tablet to hell, spent most of the night trying to fix it instead of following the quest.>>24329301Cheer up, old chum! The quest has gone on for +40 threads, it's only natural for mistakes to eventually happen. After discussion it was resolved in a satisfactory way, so don't let it keep you down.
I hope we still have a little more time for this year though.Study some new spells.Get some Wild Magic lessons.Mend and strengthen our friendships.Experience happiness.
>>24329594>That year we get magic cancer and have to go bald.Not really looking forward to that.
>>24329606We also have to visit Olivia's home.
>>24329568I'm still pretty sure our parents actually disowned and abandoned us, and Maud just wanted to hurt us as badly as possible due to jealous bitch....Because that last letter at least was definitely unfakable.
>>24329594I know but it still makes me happy.
>>24329301You've done great, don't let the minor issues depress you.Most of the issue here as that you, as the author, had the "privilege" of seeing your collective readers have a breakdown because of a tragic event.In normal books, everything's set in stone. Thus, the reader simply accepts it. Here, they whine at you when things don't go their way.Clearly, you knew where this was going from the start. They just didn't have a clue, because it was a twist in the plot-line. Their response was the problem, not your writing.
>>24329625i really can't wait for some carefree noodle armin times. going to olivias house will be like going to the buro but more special to all of us because of the time we put in to this quest.
>>24329625That follows under strengthen friendships and experience happiness.We definitely need to meet up with Olivia though, total bro-tier character and the only stable relationship we have.
>>24329638No, the problem was OP contradicted himself, and wrote an impossible twist, which is something he acknowledged repeatedly.
>The crystal ball begins to glow dimly as a foggy image rises to the surface.>You see yourself. You’re older, maybe by a year. You’re wearing your Ravenclaw robes. Your sister is with you, she looks older too. You’re in a room you’ve never seen before. You’re both sitting on a bed. You have your arm round Maud and she’s hugging you close. You see two suitcases sat behind you.>“I’ll try not to be so damn forgetful” says Maud, hugging you tightly. With a loving smile on your face you kiss her on the cheek and walk out the room. You can see something on the table, a sign, it reads ‘The Leak-“>The dreamlike vision inside the ball fades as you feel your dorm room swim back to you.Wait...>>“I’ll try not to be so damn forgetful” says Maud>>forgetfulBut the future refused to change...
>>24329540That would be excessive. Most (including myself, oddly), would find that to be a far worse punishment.Think of it this way: You can spend a few years in utter misery, or you can have your arms chopped off.Which would you choose?
>>24329301As said before, more slice-of-life, and limit the plot twists; you don't want to go M. Night Shyamalan with them.
>>24329694So... what exactly is going to happen to our parents in the next year?Or are we just staying there overnight or something?
>>24329726It's probably so ambigously written to account for several possibilites.
>>24329726I think we really were disowned and if not they're still shitty parents and I think this Trident deal has probably made us hate the whole Slytherin house to an extent.
>>24329694i cant wait to make jokes about maud being forgetful
>>24329726Its quite possible that Maud is the one disowned after her shenanigans. With her parents refusing to budge on their decision Millie chooses to go with Maud into exile.
>>24329606We also need to put in some serious work to fix Maud. Study-montage tier amounts of work.
>>24329694>With a loving smile on your face you kiss her on the cheek and walk out the room.Aw man, that sounds almost motherly on our part, I hope that doesn't mean that Maud is permanently regressed to a childlike state or something.We're in the Leaky Cauldron instead of St. Mungo's, so I hope not.
>>24329726Slytherins, specifically the racist Pureblood Slytherins, will not appreciate the Wizarding world being shown just how much of a dick Salazar really was with the revelation of what the Trident does.So our parents would still be socially ostracized for our actions. Unless they abandon their old social circles, I don't see them welcoming us back, and that's a pretty far-fetched possibility, I think.
>>24329772Technically they might not know if we don't tell them.Like we can just say Bergle was pressuring her or whatever.
>>24329821It was probably them to tell her to betray us.
>>24329801Yeah that's a good point, we need to make sure the world knows and appreciates just how many dicks Salazar Slytherin should suck in hell.
i've been following this quest and worrying about it and getting mad about it and all this shit for over two months. Obviously HPQ is doing something right because this is entertaining as hell.you drawfags put it another level over the top of awesome.also you trips give some good luls anon you can be just as good sometimes.
>>24329801It's supposedly Ravenclaw's trident. They could protect their reputation by sticking to that claim.If we don't tell the world first, that is.Also, I'm pretty sure we've just been promoted to "older" sister. Luckily, she seems to have retained most, if not all, of her intellect. She just has to regain some lost skills and experience.
>>24329875>she seems to have retained most, if not all, of her intellect. She just has to regain some lost skills and experience.what the bloody hell are you basing that off of. We literally only know that she is capable of simple motor functions.
>>24329875>They could protect their reputation by sticking to that claim.Then we must recover the Ravenclaw Diadem, to prove once and for all that the Trident was made by Salazar to backstab Rowena and steal all her memories leaving her as an invalid.Everyone knows that Salazar had a falling out with the others, but something so obviously meant to hurt one of the founding witches of Hogwart's would damage his reputation beyond all repair.
>>24329868>anon you can be just as good sometimes.Good motherfucking rolls! HELL YEAH!
>>24329875It all depends on what St. Mungo's can do for her...
>>24329894SCRATCH THAT we don't even know if she can move. only have proof she can stand and look around like a fish.
>>24329934Well unless we aren't really in the Leaky Cauldron in the future, and just like, happened to bring a sign in for some reason, it doesn't seem like Maud winds up being permanently committed.
>>24329894She's speaking normal english, despite this being only a year later.She either retained language, or learned it in a year. She's at least partially intact.Furthermore, she's with Millie in Diagon Alley: That means that she's not broken enough to be locked up in St. Mungo's (like Lockheart was).Admittedly, "most" may have been an assumption. We can deduce, however, that she is within a reasonable range of normal human intelligence.Besides that:>“The Trident was made for pureblood slytherins to take knowledge from the other houses."It's not anything definite, but it does seem to suggest that it's simply a knowledge transfer. Pensieves and such achieve a similar effect, but do not cause brain damage. There's no reason the Trident wouldn't be consistent with this, as it's probably derived from the same magical root.
>>24330029There is a reason.Salazar Slytherin was an unfathomable asshole.Seriously, I'm pretty sure this is worse than the pet basilisk.
>>24330029i have been neglecting to take any dreams visions or what have yous as facts.
>>24330061New flavor of butter beer."~Salazar did nothing wrong!~"
>>24330081...Why?Visions one and three happened almost exactly as we saw, with minor variants, and now it seems like two really was possible after all.
>>24330061Well, I can't argue with that, at least. Still, our vision seems to suggest she's still somewhat stable.Oh, and she must have basic motor functions, at least. Otherwise, she's going to drown when she fails to run from the cavern. We'll likely die trying to save her, as well.
>>24330104Oh shit. I forgot about the water.
>>24330104If she's not immediately hospitalized, I think we should see if we can take her with us when we visit Olivia.It might be interested to see how someone who is effectively a blank slate would view the muggle world and the wizarding one.
>>24330003Yeah, possibly just with slight memory problems and not the magic equivalent of downs
>>24330172Hmm...I wonder. Magic and tech would both seem to be, well, magical. I'm guessing cars would be pretty intimidating, but so would a lot of stuff in Diagon Alley.
Rolled 27>>“The Trident was made for pureblood slytherins to take knowledge from the other houses."And we know what to do once we escape. Break it to pieces. Smelt it down and abolish all magic from its fragments.It has no use for us personally and we are a potential target. It is a impediment in our ultimate goal.
>>24330371Not until we make it give us our sister's memories back.And make sure the world knows, now and forever, that Salazar Slytherin was a monster.
>>24330371What? That's a terrible thing to do.First, it contains Maud's memories, as well as those of countless others, and perhaps even those of Rowena Ravenclaw herself. Memories which are priceless and of immeasurable importance to the Wizarding world.Second, it is evidence that we need to prove, once and for all, just how much of a backstabbing douchebag that Salazar was, and to help in stamping out the vestiges of the old wizarding world order and its racism.
Found this doodle buried in my files.
>>24330469After we've recovered all of those memories and desecrated Salazar's name some more, we can break it into pieces and throw them into Mount Doom (or whichever volcano you prefer.)
It must be bloody hard to come up with a plot like this, fuck up aside it's decent.
