I'VE BEEN WAITING
Rolled 88"Everyone's asleep, try to be quiet""Will do""What's in the bundle?""My tent?""...why?""It's enchanted to be bigger on the inside, I didn't want to be in the way"You give a huff and wander into the kitchen, take two slices of toast and press the button down."Tea?""Yes, please""Sugar?""I'm sweet enough, thanks"You roll your eyes even more."JOEL" shouts Olivia's voice happily from the other room. She comes down the flight of stairs and hugs him happily."How are you?" she says"Yeah, alright, you?""Great, how was your holiday?""Got a lot of reading done, went to Scotland with the family, now I'm here"Olivia's enthusiasm for Joel is a little annoying...it's almost as if she likes him...like, like.>What are we going to do today?>We should show him Star Wars>other
>>24467375>>What are we going to do today?I thought we were going shopping.
OP, you have the weirdest sleep schedule.
>>24467375>other"We were going shopping today, right?"Are we converting galleons to pounds?
>>24467349Ain't this the truth. LOL
Well, let's see what kind of trouble we'll get ourselves into now.
Rolled 6>>24467402Sleep is for muggles.
Weren't we going shopping?
Rolled 16"Well I think we planned on going shopping" says Olivia, "Muggle shopping, not Wizard shopping""Sounds good" you say, handing them their teas. You catch a look in Joel's I as he surveys Olivia's home...when you had first met Olivia the first thing you noticed was her tatty, second hand robes. Her home, whilst still a muggle's, was clearly the home of a family which struggled to pay their way. The look you see in Joel's eye makes him look as if he's smelt something horrid. You feel a bit defensive.>Ask him what's wrong>Ignore it and drink your tea>other
>>24467563>Ask him what's wrongNot cool, Joel; especially since Olivia seems to like you.
>>24467563>>Ask him what's wrong
>>24467563>Ignore itNo sense in bringing attention to it. It would only cause both Joel and Olivia embarrassment.
>>24467563>Ignore it and drink your teaIt'll only make Olivia more uncomfortable if we bring attention to it.
>>24467563>Ignore it and drink your teaCome on, if we bring it up, Joel will get defensive and Olivia will feel embarrassed.
Rolled 80>>24467629I instead of eye. What have eye become.
>>24467619>>24467624>>24467629Eh, just trying to be in-character, but I see your point.
>>24467563Let it die. We probably made the same face since we grew up in a damned mansion.
>>24467563"Ah, I have no muggle money..."
im here im here
>>24467563>>Ask him what's wrongit might not actually be what we think it isAlso, OP has actually changed my sleep schedule so I can participate in this quest, I hope your happy
Rolled 39You let it slide and sit on the sofa and drink your tea.'Anyone want to help me put up a tent the muggle way?' Joel asks a little while later'I'm not sure what help I'll be' says Olivia.You can see it's started to spit rain outside.>Help him>Go do something else (make up convincing lie)>other>>24467706Kinda
>>24467714Help him. We can get him alone and berate him quietly.
>>24467714>>Help himif just us an Joel do it, we can ask him what's up without it being awkward in front of Olivia
>>24467714> OtherI don't believe that would be wise as it's beginning to rain.
>>24467748You never camped indoors for a sleepover?
>>24467762Well, why not make a pillow fort to go alongside it.
>>24467780Joel would invoke "No Girls Allowed."
Rolled 19Roll 1d100
>>24467714help him i guess
Rolled 53>>24467819Good to know my rolling is as shitty as it ever was
>>24467798Yeah! Well... he can't play with our giant grasshoppers then.
If it's being put up outside, we should help him get it up before it really starts to rain.Also I don't think we should berate him for his reaction. We probably had a similar one when we first saw her house, even if we weren't entirely aware.
>>24467838That's kinda adorable. sauce?
>>24467844It's less the right thing to do for me and more just being defensive and in-character. We find Joel annoying, Olivia is our BFF, and we just figured out that Olivia might have a crush on him and that he can't stand the sight of her house.
>>24467866A thread about some large grasshopper someone found. I can't find the thread anymore.
Rolled 37You decide to help Joel whilst Olivia goes upstairs to speak to her Dad about going shopping. In the garden you attempt to set up Joel's tent which happens to be a lot harder than you thought it would be. However, between to top-mark Ravenclaw students it isn't much of a problem.Once you have the tent erected, which looks big enough to fit one person, you go inside and have a look. True to form the inside his much bigger than the outside, in fact, it's nicer, and bigger, than most of Olivia's house. It's a quaint living room with a green and black decor running throughout. There's a bookshelf lining one all and...an anaconda slythering about on the floor.Roll 1d100 - 85 or less wins.
>>24467838that is kind of adorable man
Rolled 44>>24467838That's...disturbing. I once picked up a bug and loads of it's babies jumped onto my hand. Never again.
>>24467981They just wanted to hug you, HPQuest!Hug your eyes, and your lungs, and your guts! Hug them with their pincers!
>>24467973>>24467975Oh look, a snake, like we haven't seen one of them before
Rolled 11It's Joel's spaglot. It's changed from a pheonix to a snake. Huh.>Explore the tent>Talk to Joel about his attitude>other
>>24468004>Talk to Joel about his attitudeNone of that stuck up shit in our Indian teepee. Hell naw.
>>24468004>Talk to Joel about his attitudeYes, we know that Olivia's family isn't as well off as either of ours. But that doesn't mean he should let that come out.
>>24468004Why a snake now?
>>24468004>Talk to Joel about his attitudeIt takes the form of an animal we admire, right? Wonder what the implication is there.
Why does Joel have a green and black motif in his tent? SLYTHERIN SPY!
>>24468004>>Talk to Joel about his attitudereal fucking tired of your shit Joel
>>24468047Slytherin family; just like us.
Rolled 68'Do you have a problem with Olivia's house?' you ask, quietly, keeping the aggression out of your voice as you try to keep it a question instead of an accusation.'Took me by surprise' he says, relaxing into an armchair. 'Even poor wizards have certain charm to them, but muggle houses, they're just so...lifeless? It sounds harsh and maybe that isn't the right word, do you understand what I'm trying to say?'>Do you?
>>24468176"She invited you to her house, and you bring a tent like this instead. Don't you think that's a little offensive?"
>>24468176"Maybe. I still think it was a wonderful home to grow up in."It's so hard not to be jelly of her loving parents.
>>24468176"It's got more magic in it than my home."
>>24468208Nice, seconding that
>>24468208Ooooh, that's great.
>>24468176They may not possess that feeling your trying to describe, but this home is certainly filled with warmth. Something that lacks in my own home. Besides, you'll be surprised with their many contraptions.
>>24468176"In a way, yes. The lack of ambient magical auras might be a tad jarring, but they don't notice it. To them, it's normal. I'm not going to judge them for it."
Maybe. It is smaller than back home but... maybe it's the lack of magic? She and her parents seem to be happy though.
Rolled 25'There's more magic in it than my home' you say, 'they're the nicest family I've ever knows, besides, don't you think it was a little rude to bring a tent to a sleepover?'Joel sighs 'I wanted to come prepared, I have no idea how Muggles live'With Joel's tent set up you both go back to Olivia's living room where she waits with Mr.Borchard.'Ready to g-g-go?' he asks, stifling a yawn.>Yes>NoMAYBE, I DON'T KNOW, CAN YOU REPEAT THE QUESTION
>>24468373>CAN YOU REPEAT THE QUESTION
>>24468373Parrot in an affirmative matter. 'Ready to go!'
>>24468373>yes you're not the boss of me now
>>24468373Are we still in our pjs?
Rolled 64>>24468413...nope you got changed. I just didn't write that part in. Artistic integrity and all.
>>24468373"Shopping, Ho!""Shopping, Crucio!"
>>24468413dude they are muggles they wear sweat pants to formal dinner partys and drive on the wrong side of the road.
>>24468424HPQ keepin it PG since thread one
>Millicent catches sight of the arcade>"What is this magnificent place?"ddr time.
>>24468446>noodle arm wizard ddryes please
>>24468474i no rite
>>24468464There will be no noodly arms.Maybe in the drawing.
Rolled 71You all head off in Mr. Borchard's car, it's a pleasant journey, the rain looks sort of pretty as it pelts against the window. With you and Joel sat on either side of Olivia you can see she's having the time of her life, which in turn makes you happy.When you arrive at The Mall, it's filled to the brim with people from all walks of life. You're driven into a parking lot which is several stories high and Mr. Borchard presses a button on a machine which gives him a ticket before moving on.When you get out of the car you all go up an elevator, which you delight in pressing the buttons, and go to the ground floor.The mall is many times bigger, and busier, than Diagon Alley, and it's only now do you really appreciate how dominant the muggle way of life is in England.>Where would you like Millie to go?
>>24468502Bookstore seems a good start.
>>24468502magic shoparcadecomicbook/hobbie shop (buy warhammer pieces for use in wizards chess)dress shop for sexy dress montage
>>24468509Seconding bookstoreLaugh at how muggles think magic works
>Millie, after enjoying the Star Wars films, decides to check out the EU books
>>24468523Little expensive for chest pieces, remember we don't have any of our own money.
>>24468502Bookstore, just to see the variety of books.Then the Arcade.Did we convert our galleons to GBP? Or Euros?
>>24468544>You have to persuade your models to do stuffBoyz, hold that objective for this last turnAn' not charge dem beekies over der? You must be mukkin' abaht Boss Millursent
>>24468549i could see millie as a karen traviss fan
>>24468566oh my we need to atleast have a spin off of this. millies boyz vs olivias pink spass mareehns
>>24468544>>24468566That would certainly add a whole new dynamic to the game. Who cares if stat-wise the Necrons are OP as shit? Doesn't mean they're going to take orders from an illogical fleshbag like you.
Rolled 60The first port of call is, where else? The bookstore!Inside you find that Muggles have fantastic love for fiction of the magical variety, however, being a witch who'se constantly surrounded by it all the time, it doesn't quite impress you as it does her.A couple of books catch your eye; Oliver Twist, The Count of Monte Cristo, Les Miserables, Great Expectations, Romeo and Juliet...The Star Wars Extended Universe novels.Just for this exact cause your parents gave you one hundred pounds in muggle money, hopefully that should be enough to buy at LEAST one book of your choice.>Buy one book, or ALL the books.>move on
>>24468609>Buy Books: The Count of Monte Cristo, The Thrawn Trilogy
>>24468609>The Count of Monte CristoDefinitely this one. So many ideas for a young witch with a talent for curses in that one,.
>>24468609>count of monte cristo teach us how to revenge >star wars EU teach us how to muggle
>>24468609Jesus Christ... 100 pounds? Why not buy a Nintendo?
>>24468657We don't know what vidja is, and how would we play it at home or school?
>>24468609>Buy one book, or ALL the books.Seconding Monte Cristo and Thrawn Trilogy
>>24468667Pity that goes ditto for moviesUnless we can enchant a video/dvd player to not explode when around magic
>>24468609Romeo and Juliet. Since we were talkin about it some nights ago.
>>24468657Is that a lot in the UK? That's like, one video game and a few cups of coffee in the US.
>>24468609Shouldn't spend all our money on books but we should definitely grab a few. >>24468630I'll go with this, Oliver Twist, and Great Expectations because Dickens.
>>24468693bring me my long sword ho!
>>24468701>I'll go with this, Oliver Twist, and Great Expectations because Dickens.Depends on the price, you know... because Dickens...
>>24468700if you are spending a hundo on xbox games and coffee you are missing out. If i had a spare 100 bucks i would go to the hobbie shop and get another space marine squad a used n64 and 2 games.
>>24468731>xbawxPC master race.
>>24468731Wouldn't a GBA, or anything that actually comes with its own screen, be better for Millicent?
Rolled 48You decide The Count of Monte Cristo and Star Wars: Thrawn Trilogy best suits your tastes. Deciding you don't want anyone to hold your hand during the purchasing of these fine books you slap the muggle one hundred pound note onto the table and pay for the books. The checkout lady gives you a bemused look, she must be impressed with your choices, and hands you back your change.When you've joined up with Joel and Olivia you find that Joel has bought copies of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, whilst Olivia has gone for Pride and Prejudice.Roll 2d100
>>24468749it wouldnt work anyway muggle tech doesnt work in wizard land we have discussed this.
Rolled 70, 69 = 139>>24468760
>>24468700Dunno the exact exchange rate but Inaban is exaggerating a little, you'd spend about £40 on a vidyamoar perspective is that £23 is a box of Marines>>24468749We need to play metroid>>24468760
Rolled 43, 27 = 70>>24468760
>>24468766She can keep it at Olivia's.
Rolled 30, 85 = 115>>24468760
Rolled 58, 16 = 74>>24468776dangit, left a space
Rolled 47, 89 = 136>>24468760I am not filled with confidence in this roll.
Guys, we're not going to get ripped off in a mall.
Rolled 48Whilst standing in the middle of the bookstore you buckle to your knees the world around you disappears.You're standing in the Headmaster's office...another you, joined with Joel, Nigel and Olivia come inside...it's so hazy you can barely see what's happening...CRASH...yep...that's when the books fell...Tooledge....or rather Bergle disguised as Tooledge enters...The inside of Olivia's Dad's car swims back into view, the worried faces of Olivia and Joel peering down at you.'Are you alright?' asks Joel, who is holding your hand, his face contorted with worry.>Yeah...I'll be alright.>I think I just had a vision, or a flashback, or something.>Is the trip to the mall over already?>other
>>24468760Are we going to meet some of Olivia's former classmates?
>>24468818>Yeah...I'll be alright.>Is the trip to the mall over already?When you're a MILLICENT FAUXLY you don't let a little passing out stop you!
>>24468818"I-I ruined the shopping trip, didn't I?.....sorrry."
Rolled 11, 51 = 62>>24468818OH GOD DAMN IT>is the trip to the mall over already?
>>24468818>I think I just had a vision, or a flashback, or something.>other"I didn't ruin the outing, did I?"
>>24468818>>I think I just had a vision, or a flashback, or something.>>Is the trip to the mall over already?visions are awesome, they save my life and don't afraid
>>24468835>>24468831Going with these
>>24468818God damn it divination... not now!Just had a vision.
>>24468760>one hundred pound noteWait, what?
Rolled 41>>24468874They exist.
>>24468880Literally never heard of one. A little google-fu reveals that Scotland has them. Are the Fauxlys Scottish?
>>24468927Well Wouldnt Banks Have 100 Pound Notes? Especially Magic Banks?
Rolled 22'Yeah, I'll be alright' you say 'think I just had a vision, or a flashback or something, I hope I didn't ruint he trip...''Wasn't much there other than the bookstore' says Olivia, with a comforting smile, trying to make you feel better.'Yeah, not really for me' says Joel, who doesn't notice Olivia's face tighten a little.The following week is something like a cool down period, as much as you enjoy spending time with Joel, Olivia, and the Borchard's you've started counting the days until you go back to Hogwarts.A week later and the time finally arrives to go back! You've got all your things ready, Joel's packed away his tent, and you now stand outside Olivia's house ready to pile into the car.Olivia's Mum can't come with you, she's got to work, so you say your goodbyes and she says you're always welcome to stay over.Inside Mr. Borchard's car once more he drives you back into London to Paddington Station. Whilst on your way you can feel the excitement between you three building.'Lets hope this year isn't as...hectic' says Olivia'I dunno, it was pretty fun' says Joel>I think I just want a quiet year>Trouble finds us, it seems.>other
>>24468937Magic banks apparently only have coins>>24468938>Trouble finds us, it seems.In my defense, none of last year was intentional. it feels like random chance just hates me
>>24468938>I think I just want a quiet yearLike we're going to get it.
>>24468938>I think I just want a quiet year>however>Trouble finds us, it seems.
>>24468938>Trouble finds us, it seems.We enjoyed the thrill of it, but hated it at the time.
>>24468937Don't think so. They have million pound and hundred million pound notes but printing your own notes you can't actually circulate when two fifties would do doesn't seem worth it.And Wizard banks only use gold coins as far as I remember.
Rolled 77You arrive between platforms nine and ten. Olivia's Dad gives her a hug, and then gives you and Joel both one for good measure. He smells of cigarettes yet somehow that's not a bad thing. You're going to miss his constant parroting and general good nature.'Best be off' he says, 'best be off' you all parrot jokingly.With your familiar, dolls, and suitcases lumped onto carts it's time to make a running start at the wall.Roll 1d100 - 85 or less.
Rolled 29>>24469013>nat 100>miss>knock our head>land in a puddle>pass out
Rolled 25>>24469035>my first roll in HPQ
>>24469035>'Best be off' he says, 'best be off' you all parrot jokingly.Seems like we'll slip.
>>24469035Wow. Well if we never get to the train the year will be very uneventful indeed.
Did we miss the train. Very appropriate second year start.
>>24469035>year 2>Cannot into barrierI can't help but feel like I've seen this somewhere before
You know, if I were Millicent I would just be convinced that I was cursed and took bad things happening around/to us with with a certain amount of bloody-minded indifference by now.It sucks, but what ya gonna do?
>>24469035>Somehow fuckup getting into the train stationHow?
>>24468927My rich Scottish Gran used to send £100 notes for my birthday, through the post, bless her. They were never rejected.
Rolled 86>>24469125Here's how. _Joel goes first. SWOOSH. Clears it like a pro. Next up is Olivia. SWOOSH. Nailed it.Now for you. You run up, catch your foot on your robe and jerk forward as you lose control of the trolley, phasing through the wall and coming out the other end hitting some HARD.'Ouch!' says a man who you bowl over, both of you, and a very upset Tara in her cage, sprawled on the ground. You clamber to your feet and pat yourself down, as the man you knocked down does the same.In his mid-thirties a short man with shorted cropped black hair, a trimmed beard and a good natured face picks himself up off the ground and rubs his leg.'Damn it!' he shouts in an American accent. Great, another one.>Apologise>Use spell to sort everything straight>other
>>24469137Shout at him for being in the way and not having better spatial awareness.
>>24469137>>ApologiseKeep up apperances, even when it comes to muggles. We can always put a curse on him later on.
>>24469107Even worse, we have Supernatural Luck and the Luck talent on our character sheet. Truly the dice gods torment us
>>24468973>>24468951I remember Hermione exchanging muggle money at gringots, why couldnt it work the other way, or is my American showing?
>>24469137The theme for year 2, everybody...
>>24469137Is Charlie Day the new defense against the dark arts teacher?Out to protect us from nightman?
>>24469137>>otherMake sure Tara is alright.
>>24469137>Apologise>otherConfirm Tara is alright.
>>24469159Yeah, Gringotts would exchange wizard money for muggle money. Hogwarts was in Scotland but Diagon Alley and Gringotts and were in London IIRC and the biggest banknote England issues is £50. Maybe they import £100 notes for some reason, I don't know.
Rolled 40'I'm terribly sorry' you say. With the freedom to use your wand again you take it out and point it at the mess of luggage.'Nope!' says the man, holding up a hand 'Don't bother, missy'He picks up his luggage by hands, sets it back onto his own cart, and heads to the first carriage.'Millie you've got stop being so clumsy' says Olivia with a giggle.You get into the second year carraige of and find a compartment for you three.>I wonder if Nigel and Sam are around>Who was that guy?>That's the second American I've met in my life.>Second year without a fuss begins now
>>24469252>that's the second American I've met in my life.And hopefully the last
>American accent>no clappingI'm already suspicious.
>>24469252>>I wonder if Nigel and Sam are aroundWhere my bitches at?
>>24469247Okay, so my American ignorance is showing again. All cool.also, >Who was that guy?
>>24469252>>I wonder if Nigel, Sam and Robert are aroundcome on, the dude showed up when we we're in solitary for us. he has achieved friend status
>>24469252>I wonder if Nigel and Sam are aroundAmerican dude's probably the new Flying Instructor, which means he's probably going to be gone by the end of the year.
>>24468818>Joel, who is holding your hand, his face contorted with worry.>Joel likes Millie>Olivia likes Joel>Millie likes OliviaMy god, I need some popcorn, in like two or three years.
>>24469332I'm sure we'll have turned Joel into some kind of magic-powered robot by then.
>>24469351Did it with Nathaniel, already. Just have to expand on the experiment.
>>24469364Do we still have the mannequin, or was it rendered unusable after Nathaniel left it?
Rolled 33'I wonder if Nigel and Sam are about' you say'Shouldn't be too far' says Joel 'Also, I wonder where Harriet is...''So, Millie, you're going to try for the Ravenclaw team this year, right?' asks Olivia quickly>Yeah, I've got the Nimbus with my luggage, looking forward to testing it out.>Harriet's probably busy handing out pamplets.>other
>>24469387>Yeah, I've got the Nimbus with my luggage, looking forward to testing it out.
>>24469387Poor Olivia. Joel is thoroughly uninterested in her.>Yeah, I've got the Nimbus with my luggage, looking forward to testing it out.
>>24469387>>other"Will you? It should be fun doing it together."
>>24469387>>Yeah, I've got the Nimbus with my luggage, looking forward to testing it out.Did we agree what position we were applying for in the end?
>>24469387I AM MONITORING THIS THREAD>Yeah, I've got the Nimbus with my luggage, looking forward to testing it out. propose Glorious Beater or Impenetrable Keeper for the position. Keeper is best for our tactical genius
>>24469425Keeper or Beater. May as well try for both and see what the dice gods decide we're good at.
>>24469387>Yeah, I've got the Nimbus with my luggage, looking forward to testing it out.Damn, I wake up and HPQ is still running. I mean, I'm not complaining, but I'm actually starting to get concerned about your health HPQ...
>>24469451>May as well try for both and see what the dice gods decide we're good at.Nothing.
>>24469458You know its like 9 AM where OP is right?
>>24469462We'll aim for beater, accidentally a club at someone's head, they'll fall off, Olivia will catch them and she'll get made keeper or something
>>24469458It's only been going for 3 hours though.Did you sleep for two days?
Rolled 86"I've got my new, well old, nimbus 2001 in my luggage" you say as the train kicks off out of the platform.A little while later you hear a tapping at the window. It's Robert, and he's looking a little taller, a little more handsome, and has his hair cut short unlike it's usual long length.>HIYA, ROBERT>Hey! Come in.>Go outside and say hello>other
>>24469524>otherJust a simple hello from the carriage will do.
>>24469524>>Go outside and say helloWe can always ask him to come in, if he feels comfortable with it. On second thought, it will probably annoy Joel. So:>Hello Robet, please, do come in.
>>24469524"Hey Robert how was your summer?"
>>24469524"Hello, Robert. How are you? Come in, take a seat."let's keep this regal
>>24469524>>Hey! Come in.How was your holiday? Find any unfathomably powerful trapped artifacts that ruin people's lives?
>>24469549That kinda sounds like we're blaming him a little.
Rolled 18"Hey, Robert, come in" you say, waving him in.He sits beside you, opposite Joel and Olivia.'How's it going?' he says to you all with a smile which you all give polite 'alrights''Oh!' he says, remembering something, 'I got you this, Millie''You can call her, Millie?' says Joel, which comes as a little harsh.'s'pose so' says Robert, shrugging.From his robes he gives you a box, which when you open, reveals a quaint little necklace with a crimson glass int he middle.'It brings the wearer luck' he says 'thought it might come in handy for you'>Thank you>Yes, he can call me Millie>But you can't, Joel.>And so can you, Joel.>other
>>24469491Ah, I hadn't seen it started in the morning instead of late in the evening as it usually does.>>24469541I think I'll be with this. The rest of the gang isn't too comfortable with him yet, so maybe they won't like it if we just invite him in from the start
>>24469604>'It brings the wearer luck'
>>24469604Give a good chuckle"Thank you Robert, I hope it does.""You can as well Joel, I've gotten over people not using my full name... sort of."
>>24469604>>Thank you>>Yes, he can call me Millie>>But you can't, Joel.
>>24469604>Thank you"No, only Olivia can."Robert's cool but not that cool, yet
>>24469625Robert and Olivia stuck with us when shit got really bad last year, I think he's earned it
>>24469625Possibly explain how since only he and Olivia went to see us when we were in solitary confinement, that they get to call us Millie.
>>24469604>'You can call her, Millie?'"As long as he doesn't overdo it. Same applies to you Joel. The only people with full Millie privileges in Hogwarts are Olivia and Maud."
>>24469638Nah, nows not the time.
>>24469604Well this year will be interesting.
>>24469635>>24469638Good point. Kind of dickish after accepting a present too.I'll go with this >>24469621or this >>24469644 instead
>>24469638>>24469635>>24469625>WAAH only SOME of my friends can call me a variation of my name, but others cantImagine how autistic this would sound if you said it to anyone, ever.
>>24469668It's not autistic, just childish. We are also 12
>>24469604"Thanks Robert" Try it on"How do I look?"ignore the Millie comment from joel for now. When this comes up next time, we'll tell him "when you'll come visit me in the hospital wing instead of fearing me, maybe then you can call me Millie"
>>24469668I had a friend who insisted on everyone calling him Stephen, I ignored his rage for several years to the point where I was the only one allowed to call him Steve.I have that right over his family members.
>>24469683If Joel starts a shitstorm, we should politely excuse ourselves and go talk to Maud or something.
>>24469680Then it's like we're putting some friends above others, which means that we're making splits in the group and this might end up fucking us in the arse later.>>24469685Sounds like Steve was autistic.
>>24469683I thought he did visit us in the hospital wing.He didn't visit us in the room of requirement
>>24469719Bipolar definately, but no, he just really preferred Stephen.
Rolled 51You put the necklace on, ignoring Joel's comment and thanking Robert.'Where did you get it?' you ask Robert.'Scotland, found it on a dig with my dad' he says 'don't worry, we've had it checked for any bad stuff'Roll 1d10Let's see if it works.
Watch as the young Ms. Millicent totally fails to pick up on social clues because she's a sheltered misanthrope!
Rolled 2>>24469746Are we going for low?
>>24469746>>24469748>>24469750>>24469758I think it works.
Cursed choker, roll to resist strangulation.
>>24469758probably, the only thing where we need high other than low is rolling a d10 to get a fate point back, we need 8-9-10 for that iirc.OH SHIT.
>>24469736> "checked for bad stuff"> it actually brings us lcuk> too much luck> we drown in riches and lovers and freinds> we hate this> we can't even die because of luck(sort of) Bad End
Rolled 98There is a second round of tapping on the compartment window. This time it's your sister giving a happy wave. She lets herself in and sits next to you, giving you a hug.Everyone says their hellos.The compartment is getting pretty full; You, Robert, Olivia, Maud, Joel and Olivia now sit inside.'Missed you' says Maud>How was the last of the holiday?>otherCalling it a day. Got stuff to do, things to buy, plots to plot.
>>24469828Alright, later dude
>>24469828Aight, later man. Hopefully I'll be awake to see the next of this.
So anyone got any speculation on what's in store for us this year?Bergle's motives behind retrieving the Trident remain unsolved and we're getting flashbacks to when we confronted him. Plus there was the missing potion and his brother is unaccounted for
Rolled 77>>24469899The missing potion thing was a misread. It was instructions on how to make it. I wasn't clear enough.
>>24469905Ah, alright then.
>>24469899I suspect that mirror might have something big in store for us this year somehow. Any magic device as suspicious as that is going to bite us in the ass.
>>24469919At the very least it'll be an interesting device for character development. Depending on where Robert got his necklace that cause us some problems too.I don't trust anything that the story goes out of the way to say has been checked for bad stuff.
>>24469919I was just thinking about Mr.Weasley's "Don't trust anything that thinks by itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain" comment. >Millicent Fauxly and the Dark Lord's Handmirror
>>24469950Shit, if it has come out of grave, we're probably going to get the wearer's ghost on our ass. Maybe Nathaniel can sort us out if that's the case. Which reminds me, we should go say hi to Nat when we arrive :3
>>24469954yeah, pretty much that.>>24469950I can't argue with that at all.
>>24469954>Millicent Fauxly Through The Looking-Glass in which Mirror-Millie swaps with us and we play as PI Olivia trying to figure out what's wrong with Millie, and Millicent trying to break out of the Mirror Universe
>>24469973Yeah, I can't wait to get a follow up on the other characters. Particularly Trib, since I assume we'll have a level of favoritism with her that goes well beyond teacher's pet. We should really invest in studying potions more seriously.Also, Sam. Just to see if he developed a crush on us for saving him from cat form so we can make this love triangle thing even more complicated.
>>24470016Shit nigga, thats sick, or play as Millie in mirror world trying to escape.
Spin the wheel, male a deal...WITH A GHOST!
Damn, I missed it. Here, have some non-cursed Professor Trib. 1/3
>>24470056Steadfast Sam once he's older. I've got a soft spot for the Hufflepuff, I hope we'll be seeing more of him now.2/3
>>24470056I think you should change the intensity/colour of her lipstick. Doesn't really fit her, in my opinion, and clashes with her hair colour.
>>24470056>>24470072Feel my dark power.
>>24470086Thanks for noticing! I hate it when I get blind to my own mistakes after a while, so feedback like this is helpful.
>>24470056Damn, that is awesome.>>24470086has a bit of a point though. lipstick is a tiny bit too much.
>>24470134perfect. You are awesome.
Rolled 37Mirror-world thing is a cool idea, does sound like one of those filler episodes you get in tv series sometimes.
>>24470142>You are awesome.N-No I'm not! I ended up drawing this abomination while I was trying to figure out how to draw Joel consistently.3/3
>>24470160I was thinking of a full-blown Mirror Hogwarts, Star Trek style Dread Hufflepuff, where the Dark Wizards dwell
>>24470134That's perfect.>>24470161That... that's not how you draw Olivia. She doesn't have white hair, or such a prominent eyebrows.
Rolled 44>>24470202mirror world looks like dark power world.
>>24470193Oh, so you want Olivia, now, do you? WELL THAT'S FINE WITH ME, MISTER.
>>24470441he keeps his eyes open when he kiss! what a bastard.do robert and millie now, for research reasons.
>>24470447>>24470465I, um, yeah. I'll get right to it once I've had lunch.
>>24470511THIS IS SO WRON AND YOU SHOULD cpontoinue
>>24470511>T-this is really how Muggle friends greet? >Shut up and kiss me, Millicent
Rolled 43>>24470511This is about as far as I want the drawing to go, please. Don't over do it.
>>24470634It's as far as I'm comfortable going tbh, so don't worry.
>>24470634Next up: bedroom scene...
>>24470666Been there, done that.
>>24470675Aww man, that is so hot.
Rolled 96>>24470730Finger hovers over kill character button
>>24470987Not Elise! :o
>>24471096Hey, the doll's gotta go eventually.
>>24471161Nah, we just need to keep upgrading her as we grow up. Elise could make a nifty magic personal assistant.
>>24471161She was nearly gone, we had friends whom we cared for and whom care for us in return and like most children when real friends appear make believe ones fade away... the we got banished and relapsed. One would assume that after 6-8 months of normal life at the end of year 1 we would have grown away from her again but it seems not. She'll maybe start fading again now that we're heading back to hogwarts
>>24471194Not unless Nathaniel takes over the doll, the perfect body for a ghost. (I kid)
I think I need to focus on practicing Robert next, this took me ages to figure out and I'm still unsatisfied with the result.My hand is hurting so no more doodles for now unless I'm doodledumb. I'm going to steer away from all the icky cooties now.
>>24471239You'll have to do Maud next thread.
>>24471239> kissing her nose> adorable buffoon> perfect comedic sidekick/love interest for our Adventure Lawyering Firm
>>24471239We still require the other characters with noodle arms....
>>24471276Duly noted. I'll get to it once my hand has recovered.Re: quest.I find it interesting that despite the similarities in family background, Millie reacts with curiosity and excitement to muggle shit, while Joel seems uninterested and condecending.I think it'd be interesting to hear about Joel's thoughts on muggles and stuff.
>>24471329Well if I remember right, general rule with purebloods is that they think muggles are silly, or less developed if that's the correct term I am looking for. since they don't have the conveniences of magic, hell Ron refers to doctors as "muggle nutters, who cut people up." I guess the best conclusion is that he might think of muggles and their technology as not as odd, possibly he is being calculating and thinks that after Hogwarts, he will never need to ever associate with the muggle world ever, so whats the point.
>>24471329No worries, you're doing awesome.>I find it interesting that despite the similarities in family background, Millie reacts with curiosity and excitement to muggle shit, while Joel seems uninterested and condecending.I guess that's the case because Millie is currently rather disillusioned with her parents, and by extend the wizard world. Despite being supposed to be pitied by wizards at best, Olivia's muggle parents appear to be doing an incredible job in the parenting department. They may not have a high social standing, and barely any money, but they appear to be much happier and approachable than Millicent's parents.Probably got our young witch thinking.
>>24471329>>24471366I think Joel just finds the Muggle world boring by comparison. He likes things to be adventurous and flashy, while Millie, on the other hand, has some scientific curiosity and loves to learn.Joel only likes new things if they're exciting to him and Millie finds new things exciting in and of itself.>>24471382This is also probably true.
>>24471399You might be on to something there man. For some reason, I can't see Millie fully integrating into either muggle or wizard society by the time we graduate, which could leave us in like a perpetual learning mind set as we learn about the muggle world and such.
Finally caught up. I think Joel lacks empathy. It's seems like his own weakness.
>>24471444He's a pureblood, there's bound to be at least one problem if your family tree kinda looks like a circle.
>>24471417Yeah, I can see her doing that. I think it really comes down to what career we consider pursuing for her in the end. I know ParanoidBro's got his heart set on Adventure Lawyer, but I see her as more an inventor or researcher as she's already proved to be good at it and the quiet and less-social lifestyle of the career suits her more right now. >>24471469Just look at Millie.
>>24471481I love that Millie has struck a middle cord like Harry. She's part of both worlds except it completely her choice, as a Ravenclaw, to open herself up to walks of life foreign to her. ALSO: Massive thank you to those who did the pastebin, saved a lot of time.
>>24471481>Just look at Millie.Yep, exactly. Or Maud before her reset.Also, first wizard on Mars.
>>24471518This must happen.
What does everyone think is going to happen later in the year? My bets is evil Joel.
>>24471518>>24471557What if magic in space turns out to work like shadowrun? Laws of physics returned to their base components... BOOM
>>24471646Wouldn't know, never played Shadowrun.
>>24471617I'm expecting Bergle's brother to show up and the Trident to be more adequately explained. I also suspect that the Trident has done more to Maud then just wipe her memories.A plot or sub-plot related to Robert and/or the necklace he gave us seems possible too. Like I said earlier: I don't trust anything that the story goes out of the way to mention has been checked for bad stuff. Plus it's a necklace that gives us LUCK. The single thing we need the most in this whole quest and it's very likely for us to become reliant and dependent on it. It's like the situation with Maud all over again.
>>24471646We would, of course ,use the scientific methode and send something unimportant up first.Joel, Nathaniel, Charles, radnom house elves.
>>24471417>Millie is going to be in the MoM under Arthur Weasley
>>24471692Actually, I was thinking that for a while.
>>24471686My optimistic side hopes that all the trident did was take Maud's memories, but I suspect that it might be like a slow deterioration of other things perhaps like knowledge of spells, or personality, or magic ability, and can only be reversed by bringing back the old Maud and doing Salazar's bidding.
>>24471692Millicient Fauxly, Special Muggle Relationship and Artifact Retrieval Liason Officer.she works for the M.U.G.G.L.E. : Ministry underachieving group of goblin, guys and elves.
>>24471399Yeah, I mean Millie took it like an insult but from what I read Joel's just uninterested. Well the tent was weird. Though maybe he thought her parents would object to a boy sleeping in the house, I could see some purebloods being very particular about that sort of thing.
>>24471692Her parents would explode like fucking Mega Man bosses.It'd be great.
>>24471935It technically was an insult, but Joel definitely didn't intend it to be one. Just like when he called the shopping trip boring. Also, he seemed to be very uncomfortable with the idea of staying in the house and practically said so himself. Since Olivia invited him and her parents agreed, thinking he wasn't allowed to sleep in the house is very very weird.
Anyone else laugh at Charlie Day?
>>24471686I think that's just a nice thing Robert did. Shows he cares...or wants to get laid. One of the two.
OP, if you're taking requests - I'd like to know more about our friends' families.
>>24472180I just believe something is up with the necklace. I only consider it a possible likelihood that Robert is aware of it.A Slytherin boy suddenly treating us super nicely after being petrified and embarrassed in front of his friends is kind of weird, after all.
>>24472221Yeah, it might just be me, but I find both Joel and Robert a bit suspicious. Robert for the reason you just stated and there is something about Joel that rubs me the wrong way.
>>24472246It's not just you. Suspicions and paranoia are the way of life here.
>>24472271Well paranoia has saved lives quite a few times, just ask spies.
>>24472246I'm not sure if Robert's heritage is ever mentioned. He could be a pureblood or a half-blood. Also, what do we really know of Joel's thoughts on the blood system? I love the idea of Indiana Robert btw. So cash.The reality of it, for the most part, would be like any other boring dig.
>>24472246The only one we can trust is Sam. We saved him from a life as a cat, that's got to have earnt his loyalty. Unless he preferred being a cat? Nyo~ron~ :3Who knows, maybe being transformed for such a long time makes it easier for him to become an animagi later on.Robert's necklace may indeed have some far-reaching consequences. We should try investigate the enchantment on it, and ask him about the site it was found at.
>>24472318Actually, as someone with an Archeologist friends. Going on digs is actually really exciting even if the digs themselves are typically "boring". There is a lot of weird and dangerous shit that happens in foreign countries and bringing a bullwhip and pistol isn't a very weird thing to do.The real "boring" thing about Archeology is that 70% of it is just research and paperwork.
>>24472328What about Olivia or Maud?
>>24472381I would say we can trust Olivia, she has proven herself a good friend. As for Maud, we can trust her until she gets her memories back.
>>24472403Well now the question is does she want them back?
>>24472413I think we'll have to wait and see about that. The new year is *cough* an open book. >>2447237950/50 library/out on the field work according to Indiana himself.
>>24472381Them, too. I was more thinking of in lines of which guys we can trust not to have ulterior motives behind their possible affections. Though tbh anyone who misuses their cutlery is bound to be a dangerous radical.How about the staff at Hogwarts, how trustworthy do you reckon they are? Trib probably has our back and we could perhaps wring some favours out of her should the need arise.I mistrust Avori, Leverty and Lloyd. Seems to me they wanted to groom Millicent for some task, last year. We'll see what happens. If we're still having advanced lessons with them, it'd be a good opportunity to wrangle some intel about their past, and perhaps get some hints to their possible plan. Did they know the Bergle Bros. and Trib at school? Hmm.Mr. Olivier the DADA teacher seems like a bit of a doofus with his theatricals. I'm unsure as to where he fits in all this.I wonder who the painting outside the Headmaster's office is of. He recognised us as a Fauxly. Significant, or a red herring?Who will be our new Flying Instructor? And what's Mr. Gleesan up to, anyhow?And most importantly, when will the quest continue?
>>24472521All this, and more tonight/tomorrow morning on HPQUEST!Okay seriously, those are definitly good questions and hopefully we will learn about some of those, though why is Mr. Gleesan so incompetent? Letting 2 creatures (was 2 right?) almost go apeshit on us seems kinda irresponsible. That and yeah, what the hell is Professor Awesome and his two friends grooming Millie and Joel for? The Triwizard Tournament?
>>24472521I think that might have been our robe...changes color when we need it to. Just a hunch.
>>24472559Loydd strikes me as the type who collects people, like slughorn, but in a less callous way.
>>24472571Do you mean with the man in the painting? He was colour-blind, hence he didn't realise we were not in the righteous house of Salazar Slytherin.
>>24472559>>24472521I personally think Lloyd and the guys are okay even if they do seem to be grooming Millie for something. They acknowledged that we were going through more shit than any first year should ever have to and went out of their way to help.Yeah, the 2 week isolation was harsh, but we DID Crucio a guy. We're lucky we're not expelled.
>>24472645We were lucky for 2 weeks. Could have been months.
>>24471770I don't know, if anything Maud seems smarter than she was before.Which is honestly pretty suspicious.I still suspect she was overstating how much of a jerk Salazar Slytherin was, and in reality she asked the Trident what she could do to un-fuck the situation she put herself in.And it gave her an answer.
>>24472788The situation of irrationally hating her sister and wanting a new lease on life?
>>24472991Was it so irrational? Do you know how deep sibling rivalry can go?
>>24472998Wouldn't know since I just stayed the fuck out of my brother's life.
>>24472998Particularly when the parents basically encourage it.
>>24473020I'm basically Millie and my bro is Maud. I get it. Though he's never done anything like Maud has.
>>24472991Yeah, that.I think that prank of hers spiraled out of control almost immediately.Maybe she enjoyed being a good sister to us, which would double fuck her since it was built on a lie that would immediately destroy all the goodwill once it was discovered.Like I doubt she had an endgame in mind for what would happen in the summer.
>>24473065Now I see. She wanted to be a good sister and not be based on a lie.
>>24471686>The single thing we need the most in this whole questWhich is funny because Character Creation gave us both of the SUPER LUCKY traits available, Supernatural Luck and Lucky.
>>24473090Imagine if we didn't have that. I'm certain we'd be dead by now...though this could be counter waying the cambodia stuff.
>>24469899Some of the things I'm looking forward to in the indefinite future:Field trip to the ruins of CamelotFinding the Trident of Rowena RavenclawGiving our mannequin to a ghost who we really shouldn't haveHot Springs and/or Beach episodeRelease of the True Fae from their interdimensional prison
>>24473065I think she may have offered ditching their parents and living with us because that's what SHE wanted. She started off hating us for taking our parent's attention, but then she realized far too late that we were just an eleven year old girl and it was the parents she really should have been angry at this whole time.
>>24473077That's my theory, and in my mind the best case scenario.Either that or the Trident implanted subliminal programming.
>>24473111...I can't exactly disagree with her on that front.The best thing you can say about our parents is that they don't try to be so awful.
>>24473103>Finding the Trident of Rowena RavenclawYou mean the Diadem of Rowena Ravenclaw?The Trident was actually a Salazar artifact, since the Chamber of Secrets was disproven.
>>24473145Yeah that, wouldn't be surprised if we need it to restore Maud's memories.
>>24469604Well, looks like Robert is still into us. Sounds like he enjoyed his break too. >>24469736Too bad we missed out on that fate point. >>24469828And here's Maud just in time.
what if the necklace is a spycamera
>>24473347We will definitely have to investigate it.
>>24473347In that case I'm severely disappointed in Robert, I did not expect such lecherous activities from him.
>>24473347Okay... that's just creepy if it's true.
>>24473347It'll fry in Hogwarts. Muggle tech can't deal with the background magic. Gee, it's like you've never read Hogwarts: A History!
>>24473472I think he means the magic equivalent.
>>24473487>implying a Slytherin spycamera can resist the might of Fur Elise
>>24470511> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI9hgp32-f0This is my stance towards this.
>>24474906>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI9hgp32-f0oh yes they can
>>24475217I'm sorry. But... the line is too thin. The relationship may cross the line and may make this quest all fetishy.
