Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Harry%20Potter%20Nasuverse%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/HPNasuQuest=====You are Harry James Potter, and you learned three months ago that you are a magus. You've tried learning the basics from your best friend - Illyasviel von Einzbern - but that put you in a coma for most of those three months. You think you'll stick to learning from her father, Kiritsugu, to whom you are apprenticed. Outside of the von Einzberns, you don't really have that many friends. You don't really like most people, and those who do wrong by you and yours you hate with all of your hatred. You've resolved to be a better person than your relatives, and strive to act with compassion towards strangers.At the present moment, you are busy trying to deflect the unstoppable fury of a scorned Illya. Apparently, she has taken your reaction to her choice of a particular dress - the one that you saw her die in - as a criticism of her, and is damn near ready to chomp your head off."Hey, prophecy is totally a legitimate thing that's real!" You protests. You throw your arms up between yourself and Illya to ward off any attacks, though she seems to have calmed down for now."No it's not," she grumbles, "Papa always said that prophets were hacks."You pause for a moment. That redheaded fellow said basically the same thing."That redheaded fellow said basically the same thing..." you say. "Though he also talked about some ancient egyptian wizard with the same name as Professor Zelretch."Illya tilts her head."That's weird..." She says, rubbing her chin. "Does that mean I can get the dress?"You say...>Yes>No>How the hell do those two things have anything to do with one another?>Continue Zelretch tangent, distract her.>[OTHER]

>>24732196>How the hell do those two things have anything to do with one another?Depending on how cutely she pouts I just might cave and give her the dress anyway. Still, dream is something to talk to Kerry about.Also, I just realized that all of you turned down the "Knowledge" origin. MFW, you idiots. The eyes are nice, but do you realize what you turned down? We could have gotten the "Universal Language"! Remember that one guy in KnK that could "convince" people of anything by speaking it? The guy who pretty much curbstomped Shiki because he said "You will lose sight of me here" and she did? Yeah him, we could have been him. We could have been able to talk total shit and people would still believe us like it was the Word of Fucking God!Course, that would also land us with a sealing designation at some point but hey, the eyes'll do that too if the Clock Tower gets wind of it.
>>24732451The whole Origin choice was bullshit anyway.The Eyes are a completely abstract from Origins, Nanaya had them by literally dying, and Ryougi got them through hereditary means and a fucking coma.And if our origin were truly to "Be the death of things" we'd have turned into a crazy killer, like Lio Shirazumi was.Remember Lio Shirazumi?After he got his origin unlocked he turned into a drug taking serial killer?Shit, he didn't even gain any super special powers like us, he got jump good, slight regeneration, and he could eat a ton of shit.At a cost of his sanity, his hair color, his personality, and even his fucking personality.I don't know where OP got the fucking clue that Origins ever got you Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, but I can tell you if someone's origin truly was "To be the death of things" and it had been unlocked.Shit, as Harry Potter woke up from his couple-day coma, he'd have slaughtered everyone in the hospital, simply due to that Origin.
>>24732196>How the hell do those two things have anything to do with one another?Insert indignation.
>>24732196>How the hell do those two things have anything to do with one another?
>>24732635The origin influences you, it does not control you. If awakened to it it becomes something of an OCD for you. You can't not do X, because X is your origin. Indeed, it might be impossible to defy it even if you don't know it. The reason Lio began to lose his shit is because all the previous incarnations of that origin had been predatory beasts of some kind. Thus, as time passed he became more and more like them. Strong, fast, agile, and driven by the instinctual need to feed.The only thing Harry's origin will compel him to do, by comparison, is make use of those lines every so often. We're planning on doing that anyway so it really won't affect our behavior.
>Continue Zelretch tangent, distract her.Harry Potter, master of subterfuge
>>24732744>The reason Lio began to lose his shit is because all the previous incarnations of that origin had been predatory beasts of some kindAnd what sort of previous incarnation of "To be the death of things" would be better?Again, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception are a totally different concept to Origins.You gain them by being immersed in death, and I highly doubt that Harry had the inheritance gift that Ryougi did.
>>24732796No, but he did, you know, get Avada Kedavra'd back when he was a toddler. Might have something to do with it.
>>24732818Nanaya would have gone insane if it was not for the glasses, and even then he was protected by his mother.Unless you're proposing he actually died and Lily brought him back to life.
>>24732796>Vold fires insta-kill spell, spell hits harry, mommy pulls magic bs so that she dies instead of him.Yeah, should about cover it. Totally IC reason for him to have the eyes.
>>24732843Possible.Problem there being is that HE DIDN'T GET THEM THEN.
Oh man, spoke too soon. Hello there Mr. Chaos. Doing well?>Continue Zelretch tangent, distract her.
>>24732863Does it really fucking matter?Do you really have to get this mad over the internet?Is it really worth shitting up the thread?
Are we really gonna have this discussion EVERY THREAD from here on out? It's done. It happened. Does it make sense? Not really, all things considered, but it's far too late to just retcon it away now.
>>24732796Harry got hit with a spell that's effect is flat out "You die." ALL other ways of killing do so indirectly by causing things which then lead to death, like Diffindo could cut someone's throat and then they bleed out. Avada Kedavra is the only spell in existence that, like the MEoDP, simply causes the target to stop living. Being hit by that has to be the purest case of "being immersed in death" ever.>>>24732196>How the hell do those two things have anything to do with one another?Then give in to>Yes
>>24732895What this anon said. I'm kinda getting tired of that particular argument.
>>24732896>>24732894You gained the eyes after that had happened, it's perfectly possibly he could have got them at that stage.However, he didn't.Nor are you feeling the effects of an awakened origin enough.
>>24732863>>24732938We know jack shit about the ritual, could have sealed them until Origin awakening broke it because he must be "The Death of Things" and boy do those eyes allow for that. But when do things die? Must they not live for a time before they die? We only have to kill things "eventually", thus, the origin will not be a major constraint on behavior. Just don't go more than a few days without killing something or we might have a fit.
"Illya, how the hell do those two things have anything to do with one another?"Illya gives you a confused look, as if the question isn't quite parsing. She looks to you, and then looks back to the dress. And then she looks up, the gears in her mind turning as she tries to figure out why she thought the existance of an Ancient Wizard Zelretch had anything to do with her dress. Madame Malkin guides here to one of the chairs, and starts taking her measurements for her Hogwarts robes."Please," she pouts.You frown at her.She throws you a look that would not have been out of place on a puppy that Dudley and his gang had been kicking around.Your frown intensifies."Pretty please?" she all but begs.Madame Malkin turns to you, clearly beguiled under whatever bizarre witchcraft Illya was employing. "It does suit her...""Fine..." you say. "Fine."Illya nearly jumps out of the seat when you give in to give you a hug. Key word being nearly - she gets too caught in a tangle of cloth to actually succeed. Madame Malkin rights her back up, and continues her work."So what houses ddo you think you two are going to be in?"You...>Ask what a house is.>Pretend that you know what she's talking about.>Reflect the question to Illya as petty vengeance.>[OTHER]
>>24732982>We know jack shit about the ritual, could have sealed them until Origin awakening broke itAnd what sort of magician would be able to conjure that up?Aoko stole Mystic Eye Killers glasses, ones so strong even Arcueid couldn't break them.What sort of ritual would ever be able to mimic that effect to such a degree that one of the greatest soul based spells, the awakening of the origin, would be the only thing that could break it?
>>24733009>Ask what a house is.Well I've recently been taken in by Illya's parents so I'm currently living in their house...
>>24733009>Ask what a house isSpecifically>What?
>>24733016A sacrifice of life? (Harry's mother, in this case)
>>24733009>Reflect the question to Illya as petty vengeance.Sweet blueberry fuck if we're bickering this much already just wait 'til OP sinka the Kitty Hawk.
>>24733016Not the only thing, but something that *would* do it. And the glasses could already kill mystic eyes, Aoko just made them literally unbreakable for lulz. She didn't really "power them up" as it were.>>24733009>Ask what a house is.IC we don't know shit, so they get a nice big "Hu-wha?"
>>24733056A sacrifice from one of the most talented witches in the HPverse, I might add.
>24733009>Pretend that you know what she's talking about.>Atreides
>>24733016Given how Lily's sacrifice could stop an unblockable death I don't think it unreasonable that it could delay the awakening of eyes of death.ANYWAY GUYS I AM DISTRESSEDIn the previous thread Illya said>"And it's because I'm so small, isn't it," she grates. "That I'm not and will never be some -cow-."Is this implying that she has the same growth/lifespan issues from canon FSN or does she just somehow know that she's not going to have big breasts somehow?
>>24733056>>24733079A sacrifice is only good with direction.The only person that could sufficiently seal off the root was Souren Araya, master of bounded fields, although he could do so without use of sacrifice of a life.He lived over 300 years, all of it devoted to the magic of the soul.>>24733072>And the glasses could already kill mystic eyes, Aoko just made them literally unbreakable for lulz. She didn't really "power them up" as it were.They were still made by Touko Aozaki, an EXPERT on Mystic eyes, and someone who could fight equally with a caster from the age of the gods.>>24733105>Given how Lily's sacrifice could stop an unblockable death I don't think it unreasonable that it could delay the awakening of eyes of death.Simply out of PLOT then?That's sure some good writing there.
>>24733105Or it could be, you know, she's a girl. And worried about her looks.
>>24733105I'M IN DESPAIR! ILLYA'S SMALL BREASTS HAVE LEFT ME IN DESPAIR!
>>24733143But anon, DFC is best.
Guys, please stop feeding the troll. You won't make it stop bothering you, it'll just follow you home.
>>24733120Fude, I feel the need to point out that WE SAW Kingsley perform a fucking True Magic in front of us, simply out of hand, as if it were no big deal.
>>24733149Not if it's a sign that she's gonna die absurdly young.
>>24733105I don't think she'll have any problems, she was grown up in the dream after all. She's just worried she's gonna have a DFC for the rest of her life and that Harry's into Cowtits, thus won't really like her. It's insecurity. Which makes little sense as her mother's rack wasn't all that bad so she'll get some boobage.>>24733150Indeed, ignore the man who is hammering this sign down our throats.
>>24733009>>Ask what a house is.>>24733171It could also be because she's, y'know, ten years old.
>>24733150I'm not a troll.I just don't think you've read up enough on the Nasuverse.
>>24733016a mommy's sacrificeI've never fully played FSN or read/watched all the HP movies, but I know you should stop giving a fuck already dude. We can't retcon it by now, and the world is ultimately the GM's, who can slightly alter the Eye's requirements slightly to work properly with us as they see fit. There's no point in continuing to argue, it won't make our Origin Space for those cool perspective powers.
>>24733182>Indeed, ignore the man who is hammering this sign down our throats.If I was doing that then I'd be complaining about how you had Gandalf and Zelretch as the teachers of Harry Potter.I honestly have nothing against this quest aside from a few errors in consistence with the Nasuverse.>>24733162And which True Magic was it?
>>24733194>Space>not KnowledgeFucking pleb.
>>24733227>>24733194>Not answering a field of swords.Truly you are no heir of Kiritsugu.
>>24733223Please. Please stop. I'm asking really nicely. Please?
>>24733162Yeah. There's only 5 of those and they are fuck you flashy and powerful. You KNOW when somebody's using a true magic. So which one did we see?
>>24733253Sure, I wasn't planning on continuing this all thread anyway.>>24733262>There's only 5 of those and they are fuck you flashy and powerful.Whoa, wait a second.Half of the True Magics aren't even fleshed out.Only the Fifth, Third, and second are.And none of them are inherently flashy at all.
Jesus christ what is it about the Nasuverse specifically that brings out the spergs going on about the exact details of x piece of lore and if you deviate even slightly from it then you're shitting all over the story?CONSIDER THISIF NASUVERSE AND POTTERVERSE MAGIC CO-EXIST THEN LOGICALLY NOT ALL THE RULES CAN BE QUITE THE SAMENow everyone shut up about it my god.
>>24733262>>24733223Dude created something (parchment) out of nothing, which, if memory serves, falls under the purview of the First True Magic. Or my memory for the Magics is shit.
>>24733316>IF NASUVERSE AND POTTERVERSE MAGIC CO-EXIST THEN LOGICALLY NOT ALL THE RULES CAN BE QUITE THE SAMEIf you noticed, he wasn't arguing about magic at all.
>>24733316>that one guy that starts shouting after the argumentwelcome to the thread
>>24733322Or he might have just conjured it from his study, via Potterverse spell, and it was interpreted as a True Magic by someone who wasn't versed in "normal" wizardry.
>>24733316It's got a very strict system of rule magic, which is cool to read about, but a BITCH to GM in because all it takes is that one guy who knows more about the setting and won't just roll with it, to make it impossible to run.
>>24733345Potterverse magic frequently conjures shit up out of nothing, though. It's in literally every book.
>>24733322It's implied that Shirou's reality marble is a deteriorated form of some higher magecraft or magic, which may be what you're referring to, but to be perfectly honest nothing from that was confirmed at all, so it could be a deteriorated form of the first magic, or simply a magecraft only heard about in legend.
>>24733325>If you noticed, he wasn't arguing about magic at all.Magic, psychics powers, wierd setting specific powers, who gives a shit. The merger of two settings with different setting specific things inherently means that at least some rules must be different.
>>24733408Did you even read the argument?The said "magic" he was taking about wasn't influenced at all by the HPverse.
>>24733390"out of nothing" is kind of an odd phrasing. Remeber how Hermione was a bookworm, and started spouting off this "can't create something out of nothing" spiel? I think it was in the sixth book.Anyway, it's supposedly one of the Laws of Magic or something that you can't create out of nothing, there has to be something to start with. You can't make food from nothing, but if you have food already, you can duplicate it. Stuff like that.
>>24733422>The said "magic" he was taking about wasn't influenced at all by the HPverse.You of course have a deep understanding of the metaphysical laws of this combined universe and what things are affected by what.I'm done with this discussion, waiting for more posts by professor chaos.
"I shall be a member of House Atreides," You declare with great pomp and circumstance. "And all Hogwarts will know: THE SPICE SHALL FLOW UNENDING!"Illya giggles."Sorry," she says, "We don't know what you're talking about.""Ah, you're muggle borns, are you," Madame Malkin says a wistfully. Her sewing doesn't even miss a beat as she carries on in the conversation - she's clearly had god knows how many years carrying on small talk with her patrons. "There are Four Houses that they'll split you up into when you arrive - Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin."With each word, she gives a flick of her wand, and the ghostly images of four animals fly out of it. First, a golden lion prances across the room, shedding crimson sparks like loose fur. Next, a black badger trudges behind it sturdily, leaving behind yellow paw prints. A deep blue and white raven follows it, and lastly is a snake of forest green and silver scales."Gryffindor," she points to the lion, "is the house of the brave. Not exactly known for their wisdom, though.""Hufflepuff," the badger waves, "is the house of the loyal and hard working. Students from it tend to be either extraordinary in all they do, or scrape along the average.""Ravenclaw," the raven flutters around Illya's head, "is the house of wisdom. Very bookish folk, those people, but you'll rarely find anyone smarter.""Slytherin," the snake slithers around your head, "is the house of cunning and ambition. Always wind up going into politics, those ones."You decide that you want to be in...>Hufflepuff>Gryffindor>Hufflepuff>Ravenclaw>Hufflepuff>Slytherin>Hufflepuff>[HUFFLEPUFF]>[OTHER]
>>24733433Indeed. If you have dirt you can transmute it into anything of equal mass. Equivalent Exchange, you sac prana and this dirt for a turkey. It all balances out. Something came out of something else, hell, you could even transmute air into shit, just gonna need a lot of air as it ain't got much mass.
>>24733433Then explain how spells that spontaneously make a bouquet of flowers or a group of birds or a snake spout from your wand work. These spells are apparently commonplace in the Potterverse. They clearly create something out of nothing since there is no Transfigurations involved. Perhaps these ARE low-grade copies, but these are STILL being created out of nothing if the original remains intact.
>>24733519>Slytherinbecause spite and scheming seems more our style.
>>24733519I BELIEVE IN CEDRIC DIGGORYAnd declare our intent to be extraordinary
>>24733519>GryffindorFor the awesome that would be Mystic Codes in the hands of the Weasly Twins!
>>24733524No.Harry Potter Conjuration is explicitly a low grade version of the Denial of Nothingness. This is Word of DM, I don't care about anything else.Now stop it.
>>24733519>[Other]>Ask for more information"Do we get to pick which house we go in? That seems like it would kinda defeat the point."
>>24733526Those are, arguably, Projection.More interesting is Transfiguration. If my (admittedly weak) inderstanding of the Nasuverse is correct, turning a cat into a cup and back, without killing the cat, would be classified as Magic, rather than Magecraft, because it's not possible to achieve through non-magical/thaumaturgical means.
>>24733519>[Other] We get to pick?
>>24733519>[OTHER]>ask what house Illya wants to be in>we want to be in the same one
>>24733558>This is Word of DMannnd that's that>SlytherinI honestly dont see us fitting into hufflepuff, and we might be able to change people's opinions of slytherin
>>24733558Alright. Sorry, I'm much more versed in Nasuverse lore than I am potterverse, only read a few of the books. I of course always defer to the judgement of the Based GM.
>>24733519I suspect Nero might have a favoured answer here.
>>24733519>HufflepuffHarry Badger don't care.
>>24733519Hufflepuff might be a good fit for us.our spitefulness isn't in the open >all hell breaks loose>"I didn't do that."may help us get away with our non Potterverse shit too as people will just assume weird shit happens around us.
>>24733558Also, you said this quest was a little playtest for a nasuverse system. If it all works out well will you publish it for us fa/tg/uys? I've been saying for ages that the nasuverse fucking NEEDS a system. It's practically begging for one! If you can deliver you will have my eternal gratitude.
>>24733656That's totally Slytherin, man.
Hufflepuff seems to be winning (yay)
>>24733679We're very meta about our hiding it. Even being related to anyone in Slytherin is too risky.
>>24733519I'm gonna say that we SAY we want to be in gryffindor, but actually want slytherin
>>24733519>SlytherinWe have spite as one of our traits, and our Origin is the Death of All Things. how can we NOT be this house?
Hey op, can you give us some details on the system you're using? I'm quite interested in it. Here have some best girl for your troubles.
>>24733733Because we are also compassionate and loyal to our friends. And our wand is MADE for healing.
>>24733734Isn't it sad?
>>24733748Oh shit, I forgot about that.Guys.Illya got the wand that Harry was supposed to get. Illya's wand is the brother of Voldie's wand.
>>24733748Who says good guys cant be in slytherin?
>>24733763That's changing in the remake (fuck yeah!) anon.
It's occurred to me looking at how the numbers seem to work in our statblock. With it being roll equal to or under on 3d6, if we had both the stat and skill at A rank it would be impossible to fail.I assume humans use a different scale of F-EX than the servants do, otherwise Harry is as agile as Lancer.
>>24733793>remake>implying not vaporware
>>24733519I would say Slytherin only because we will become the House Head that it needs, not the one it deserves.
>>24733768If we plan to be a cunning schemer, we don't want people to KNOW we're one, hmmmm-aaah.
>>24733748So are we, compassionate is another healing perk, that's a bare minimum of 3 wounds healed with wand magic on a success. As we only have 6 and Kerry had 12 that's quite a lot of healing.>>24733764Good thing we intend to keep her around, maybe even romance her at some point.>>24733793Now if only they'd hurry up and crank that thing out! Satsuki deserved a potential happy ending even if I thought Arc was best girl.>>24733799Servants are broken bastards. Some things we wouldn't even be allowed to roll for that a servant would because of that. You can't run at 50mph no matter how high your agility and athletics score are. If the servant makes a good roll, they can.That is why an average magus is fucked when taking on a servant.
Oh dammit, I have a paper for psych to write on surviving a zombie apocalypse due tomorrow......It can wait.>>24733519>Gryffindorfor creating Magical Mystic codes with the Weasley Twins for Fun and Profit!
>>24733519Slytherin. Really, why are we even having this discussion?
>>24733937Because any good plotter knows not to paint a giant "Scheming Bastard Am I" sign on their fucking forehead. Being in that house does just that, so I for one don't want in that one.
You're torn, you're very torn. On the one hand, scheming and plotting in the background while people's eyes are on other, more obvious targets is totally your joint, and you love doing that. On the other hand, a house of people loyal to their friends - and thus not assholes like Dudley and his merry band of cowards - is something that you not so secretly want to be a part of. And really, who would expect the House of Normal to have a schemer in their midst?Really, there is only one choice."If we get to choose," you say, "then I shall be..."You pause, making a grandiose gesture with your hand, as to say that your a bringing the full force of your will down upon this decision, and damn anyone who would deny you to the depths of hell. You clench your fist, and declare your favored House."The first of House Atreides!"Madame Malkin bursts into a a giggling fit. Illya gives you a blank stare filled with a potent mixture of annoyance and amusement."Harry, Atreides isn't even an option?"You determination intensifies."The spice must flow, Illya," you decree. "The spice must flow."After a good few laughs all around, you walk out of the shop 10 galleons lighter than you were and two bags of uniform robes and one frilly white dress heavier than you had been. You asked her about the Dracovests that the cool looking redheaded Indiana Jones was talking about, but apparently they don't make any of those in children's sizes, so you'll have to go without.It is approaching three O'clock. Your next destination is...>Broomstix>Eeylops Owl Emporium>Magical Menagerie>Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment
>>24734025Let's save the best for last, and go to >Magical Menagerie first.
>>24734025>Magical MenagerieWe need a loyal pet at our side. Preferably a(n Atreides) hawk.
>>24734025>Wiseacre's Wizarding EquipmentNeed to get a device that will allow for us to communicate with Kerry in real time while within Hogwarts until we learn enough about that magical fuckery to make us a cell phone mystic code that'll work inside that anti-tech zone.
>>24734025>Magical Menagerieacquire familiar (or something kerry can convert to a familiar for long-distance communication)
Menagerie or Wizarding Equipment: As Kiri's apprentice, we must seek out viable tools and weaponry, and Heracles is Illya's: We need our own familiar.
>>24734025>Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment
>>24733734It's an experience based, point buy system. I'm trying to balance things at "Average Joe = 100 points"It costs an increasing amount of points to but higher ranked Attributes, as they apply to a broad range of skills. Skills each cost 2 points per rank, with 0 points to be untrained and have an effective rank of F. You generally know a number of mysteries equal to your rank in a particular type of Magecraft.You can designate almost any skill you want as a combat skill, though some can only be used to determine your defense score. Your defense score, is [Combat Skill Rating] - 10, to a minimum of 0. To hit someone, you first have to roll against your [Combat Skill Rating], and then find the difference. [CSR-Roll] is greater than zero, compare it to their defense score - the higher of the two wins.Wounds are dealt based upon the weapon you use. As a MEoDP user, you always deal a number of wounds equal to [CSR-Roll] when you hit.It's a bit crunchy, though, I'm thinking of lightening the maths, though I'm not quite sure how to go about that.
>>24733669If it were possible to use the exact Nasuverse system as exists in FSN would you play it?
>>24734202That system basically being "You get to break one rule. Choose wisely" + fluff?
>>24734202The nasuverse system as described in F/SN was too vague. You had grades for stats, but not much to tell you what that meant other than they're either really good or suck at a certain thing. It needs more crunch.
>>24734025Menagerie.We need a SQUAWK
>>24734224>>24734227>>24734234Hmm... Well it's nice to know there's interest in it.
>>24734265>>24734257>>24734234Fuck trips and fuck me.Good night, have a pleasant time.
What happened to the OP?
Your trip to the Magical Menagerie is about as eventful as all of the other shopping that you've been getting out of the way today so that you won't have to do it again for a looo~ong while. That is to day, you bump into a few colorful looking people - literally, mind you, as they were dressed in the technicolor fashion abortions that Wizards think muggles walk around in - and find it nestled between its top competitor, Eeylop's Owl Emporium, and Wiseacre's Wizarding Supplies.Stepping into the store, your nose is assaulted by the various interesting smells of animals living their day to day lives mixed with the pinesol scent of rotting wood chips. It is surprising similar to a muggle store - much like any pet shop, it has aisles of cages large and small, housing animals of all shapes and sizes.It's oddly depressing in the same way those are, now that you think about it. Especially since the cages are barred instead of glass.Several other young witches and wizards are scurrying about the aisles, begging their parents to let them take home a familiar. Most parents seems only content to let their children gawk at the critters, though some do let them pick a bird, or cat, or dog.Speaking of dogs..."PUPPIES!" Illya's eyes light up when she sees the pen, strategically located right infront of the store. There are all manner of adorable little doglets, that you have no doubt she should not be allowed to bring home to Heracles.You...>Join Illya at the puppies.>Take a look at the cats.>Take a look at the rodents.>Take a gander at the birds.>Peek at the reptiles.>[OTHER]
>>24734192I think its alright in its crunchyness, having attacks be more effective the more you succeed in attacking makes sense. It also seems easy to come up with modifiers for rolls. I like it so far
>>24734490>birdswe should have some canonicity here and not be full on retard away from HP canon.go get your damn owl and lets get going.

We Kerry's apprentice, we understand these things.>>24734527We left the reservation the instant we didn't get our "destined" wand. I for one am quite happy about this.

>>24734490>Join Illya at the puppiesJust looking at them doesn't mean we're immediately going to buy one, guys. We can indulge in cuteness for a bit here.
>>24734544Yes.But first look at puppies with Illya.
>>24734490>take a GANDER>at the birdsOh you.
>>24734555i figure the more we deviate from one side the weirder it will get to be honest.personally i'm of mind that this may be the result of nasuverse interference with this particular universe.that doesn't mean we shouldn't TRY to at least somewhat follow what we are supposed to be doing.
>>24734651That is an artificial limit on our actions. There is nothing we "should' do, only things we want to do.
>>24734490>Take a gander at the birds.ACQUIRE FALCON Though we could get some rats to make familiars out of.
You join Illya for a very brief moment to play with the puppies - their inherent adorability is not something that a ten year old boy is well equipped to resist. Getting one is very tempting indeed, as the cute balls of fur and fluff with their little bobbed tails and big droopy eyes will one day grow to be a large, powerful, adorable beast of wrath and protection. You hug one. It licks your nose.Putting it down before you do something that will inevitably cramp on Illya's position as "small person with big, badass, friendly dog," you leave to take a look at the birds.There are rows and rows of gilded cages, containing majestic and powerful figures of the avian variety. Owls, hawks, doves, sparrows, albatrosses, all the myriad species of bird you could have thought of and more rest within this aisle. Most are asleep, letting the days of their captivity slip by them.A few, however, catch your eye. A majestic eagle that wouldn't have been out of place on an American propaganda poster. A brown hawk with spotted wings meets your eye, showing you its nature as a hunter of prey. A dove seems to bow as you walk by it, causing you to double take to make sure you weren't halucinating. A beautiful white Owl, that seems oddly familiar for some reason.You go to the...>Eagle>Hawk>Dove>Owl>[OTHER]

>>24734818Hawk. Totally the hawk.
>>24734818>Check out what was up with that dove>Go to the Hawk if the dove turns out not to be very interesting
>>24734818Hawk or Eagle, matters little to me as both have talons that'll wreck your shit.Though if I had to choose it'd be the Eagle because of the 'MURICA jokes we could quip as it clawed peoples eyes out.
>>24734818Hawk, we'll be way more badass than those faggots with owls.
Any snakes we can talk too?
You approach the hawk. It casts a discerning glance your way, as if trying to take your measure. You reach out to the cage, and brushes against the bar."Caw Caw," it screetches, though that isn't quite the right onomodopoeia. "So, are you a smart little guy?"It gives you an offended look. Apparently, it doesn't appreciate being called a little fellow or something along those lines."Alright, you're a smart big guy, then?"It doesn't nod, which is somewhat disappointing. It doesn't really need to nod, though - its approval is conveyed through more than anything a mere gesture would have been able to tell you."Caw. Caw." Again with the incorrect onomodopoeia."You know," you tell it, "If you're the fellow I'm gonna be bringing back with me, you're going to need to correct that. Hawks don't go 'Caw caw' like that -" You flap your arms for emphasis. "That's more like a crow - and those are filthy scavengers. You wouldn't want to be compared to a scavenger now, would you?"If it didn't have a beak, you'd imagine it would be pouting."I thought not.""Caw," it squeaks, begrudgingly.You...>Ask one of the employees if you can purchase this fine specimen>Continue looking at some of the other birds.>Try another type of animal.>[OTHER]
>>24735127>Check out that dove>Maybe try talking to some snakes?This'll be our familiar for a long ass time, so we need to choose him/her carefully.
>>24735127>Ask one of the employees if you can purchase this fine specimen
>>24735127>that picThat's what should have happened to Sakura, swarmed in cuteness instead horribly violated by penis worms!Anyway, I say we look around a bit more, check out the other birds quickly so we can make a more informed decision. This is gonna be our familiar, we need to choose carefully.
>>24735127>Continue looking at some of the other birds.See if they have some larger falcons, and check out that eagle
>>24735127>>Try another type of animal.Snake snakes are cool.
Why are you guys so dead-set on getting a bird? We can't take it with us to our room at Hogwarts (I'm assuming, since that's what happened to Hedwig), and if we need to send mail we can just use a school owl. We should get something we can take with us everywhere.
>>24735127Might as well see what else they have in the bird department
>>24735245A valid point, but we won't be at hogwarts forever. Birds (or anything that can fly really) are the best familiars because of flight and recon. Also, Eagles, Hawks, and Falcons are capable of fighting other creatures and generally ruining another person's day because talons are sharp.
>>24735127>Continue looking at some of the other birds.EAGLE MOTHER FUCKERIf it doesn't act like this guy, I will be very disappointed
>>24735231yes snakes something small but smart, maybe even piousness.
>>24735127Let's go check out that Owl, she seems smart.
>>24735392Also they don't have that stigma attached to Reptiles, and make a good smokescreen for whatever other familiars we may make for ourselves.
>>24735449>maybe even piousness.Well then we have to decide what religion we want.Actually, what's parseltongue for DEUS VULT?
>>24735509SSSSSSSS SSSS I imagine.
>>24735530you're using the wrong case bro, it's SSSSSSS SSSS
You decide to leave the bird section of the Menagerie behind for the time being, and take a look at the other sorts of animals they have for pets. Your meanderings lead you over to the snakes, which from what you can hear seems to be pretty popular, despite the general stigma society has for reptiles. You are very surprised to find the aisle nearly empty, despite all the chatter."'Ey, cholo, come 'on!" A voice says from somewhere to your left. "Whysss you leaving me hangin man? How did old Esssmerelda get her sssweet assss adopted by one of thessse humansss?""SSSilence you Brazzzilian cur!" another says, apparently from behind one of the cages. "SSShe wasss not asss vulgar asss your impudent tongue isss. Perhapsss if you ssshut up about adopssshon, then thessse humansss will onssse more sssee what a sssuperior familiar our breed isss!""You mean thisss isss my fault!" the former shouts."You can't know that, sssilly," this voice comes from across the second, and seems to be reprimanding it. It is much more high pitched than the others, sort of reminding you of Illya, or Hermione. "Sssweety, it'sss not your fault the humansss don't like sssnakesss any more. I've read their papersss... the lassst ssspeaker wasss a bad apple."You...>Ask whose there.>Search for where the voices are coming from.>Engage in the philosophical question of why snakes are considered evil.>[OTHER]

>>24735587>Engage in the philosophical question of why snakes are considered evil.This isn't really a question. And like many things its mostly the fault of the abrahamic religions having humanity cast from paradise because of a snake.Before that however, they were largely regarded as charmed, even having healing abilities or immortality due to the shedding of their skins (see Gilgamesh)

>>24735587Gotta say, I was down for atreides hawk, but just think of the shenanigans if we own a snake. If we had a pet we could communicate with that is far better than a stupid owl.
>>24735720I wonder if its descended from the snake whose skin was so damn important
>>24735587Its always good to enter intelligent discussion of life and why snakes are evil, good for the brain I mean. would love to see how the snakes react to a new voice joining in the discussion
"It goes a bit further beyond that, actually," you tell the girly voice, "Humans, at least in Europe and the Middle East, haven't been all that fond of snakes for quite some time." You start pacing the cages, looking for where the voices are coming from. "At least as far back as the Bible - actually, no, even further than that. The first hero of the world, according to legend, slew the first snake."You're not entirely sure why Kiritsugu drilled that little fact into your head - he never went into any of the other part's of Gilgamesh's epic, just that..."That'sss troubling..." the refined sounding fellow hisses. "To think that sssuch animosssity hasss exisssted... perhapsss that isss why the old onesss made the ssspeakersss.""It'sss jussst a legend, cholo." the snake says. "Itsss not like knowing thisss one way or the other changesss thingsss between usss and the humansss..." One of the snakes in the cages that you're staring at turns its head towards you."Ssso cholo, you a ssspeaker then? What'sss your name?"You blink. The darting of the snake's tongue was in perfect timing with the voice that just spoke to you. The snake's head tilts, as if in expectation of an answer.Oh bloody hell the snakes can talk.You...>Get the hell out of dodge and ask a shopkeep if they're supposed to do that.>Freak out a little bit, and continue the conversation.>Tell them you'll be right back, grab Illya and show her the snakes.>[OTHER]

>>24736169Eh, it's something for him to do. He'd be running the city in no time.

You jolt back from the cages in shock. Holy balls, the snakes can talk."Holy balls, you're a talking snake!" You all but yell, pointing at the golden scaled creature that had adressed you as "cholo," whatever the hell that meant."Holy ballsss," the snake responds... deadpanning, you think? "A talking human.""But... but..." you stammer out. "How... you don't... you can talk!""Yesss, I can talk, cholo," the snake tilts its head the other way. "Been doing it sssince I wasss born, in fact - my breed hasss alwaysss been essspecially fluent in the Parssseltongue..." It flicks its tale back towards its cage, in a gesture that quite plainly tells you to stop freaking out and embrace your snake filled destiny. "What'sss more interesssting isss how you are a ssspeaker.""Sorry?" you ask. "Speaker, what the heck does that mean?""It meansss you can ssspeak!" the happy sound girl snake chimes in."What ssshe sssaid," the golden snake nods, "Not many humansss possssessss the gift to ssspeak the Parseltongue. Not many humansss indeed. You ssshould feel honored, cholo.""Excuse me," an older girl rounds the corner - she's got an apron over some surprisingly fashionable muggle clothes, and a shock of pink hair. A badge is pinned to the apron, reading 'Hi, I'm TONKS'. "Sorry kid, I could have sworn I heard someone scream back here or something."She grins at the way you're practically hanging onto the cage."So, you like snakes, kid?"You...>Tell her how awesome the snakes are.>Ask her if there are any other talking snakes around.>Ignore her and continue speaking with the snakes.>[OTHER]

>>24736354>>Ask her if there are any other talking snakes around.Tonks is cool. She'll be in her 6th or 7th year at Hogwarts this coming semester, so we should befriend her. For an older teen to befriend a munchkin, we need to win her interest. Thus, we tell her about our parselmouth ability.

It is currently the year 2000 - Harry's first term is in 2001. Tonks will be returning to Hogwarts for her second semester of sixth year after new years. Grail War IV happened in '97.

>>24736682Why is he buying clothes he won't wear for a year, or books he won't read for a year?

>>24736682YES! Must crack problem of magical fuckery ASAP so we can have smartphones inside Hogwarts! Thank you based GM!

>>24736705>books he won't read for a yearI am fairly sure that we will read the SHIT out of them
>>24736736The first thing that popped in my head was Index.
>>24736705Why not? I know my mother always bought me winter clothes in summer simply because they were cheaper that way. Similar applies to school uniforms, you don't buy the summer set by itself.
Guys!We need to stop 9/11!
>>24736705Books to get ahead on his studies, of course.The clothes bit happened to distract Illya from evil dress, which you caved on anyways.
>>24736714I think Limewire and those kinds of things sprung up around 2000.
>>24736721Forgot to add. We don't have them now, but in a few years the first I-phones start rolling off the production line. Damn useful they are, it's like a computer in your pocket. Always nice to have the bonus to research rolls thanks to an internet connection.
>>24736748>>24736766Even depressed losers don't need to study school books. Those efforts are better spent on practical shit, especially since Kerry will be unavailable at school.
>>24736761Stopping 9/11 would be pretty fuckin' badass but there is no way we'll end up in new york at the right time.
>>24736721Well, unless you count the earlier stuff by Palm or Blackberry, the first modern smartphones probably won't start happening until 2007, with the Iphone
>>24736783Limewire? Hell, napster is probably still around
>>24736792On the flip side, Kerry doesn't know much about Potterverse magic. These books could very well be for his benefit as well as Harry's.
>>24736784>the first iPhoneshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XOr6RVjdFc>>24736688Sadly, she's a bit old for us. Admittedly, she was a bit YOUNG for Lupin, so we could always give it a shot in a few years, but still...
>>24736792Not if we get a good scrying orb or something similar. Plus, he's got a few months with Kerry before this happens. Once he gets the basics of Nasuverse magical SCIENCE we can work on cracking the anti-tech field around Hogwarts. Once that's done Kerry is just a phone call away.
How bout pokemon cards?
>>24736814Yes, but Potterverse doesn't know much about Nasuverse either, so since we'll be out of contact with Kerry for longer, we should take advantage of what he has to offer.
>>24736738I mean, Hufflepuff is like 50% about being nice.Like, where Ravenclaw has "smart" and "inquisitive", Slytherin has "ambitious", Gryffindor has "courageous", Hufflepuff is basically a split between "industrious" and "being a pretty cool guy".
>>24736880Hufflepuff is split between "industrious" and "useless."
>>24736880dont forget the gender imbalance. Hufflepuff is like, 3/4ths female
>>24736880I'm tempted to vote Hufflepuff now just because of Tonks. Damnit.
>>24736880Hufflepuff could replace their badger with this thing, and it would be pretty accurate.
>>24736921>You are now imagining Harry assembling a Harem if he gets into Hufflepuff.

"Oh hello!" you greet the older girl. "Yeah snakes are great! Have you every tried talking to one? They're actually kind of neat."You turn back to the snake."So, what were we talking about, again?"Tonks gives you a bizarre look."You're a Parseltongue," she says. "We've got a parseltongue in the snake aisle. Oh lord, this will only end well.""Shh!" you say to her, "I'm trying to speak with... ah..."You motion for the snake to fill in his name. When all his does is tilt his head at you, you give up and actually ask him."What's you're name, mate?"The snake blinks. "I don't really have one, cholo," he concedes. "It'sss been too long sssince any of usss have actually needed one.""Ummmmm... Mr. Gargan... Mr. Gargan... we've got a Parseltongue chatting with the snakes in the..." Tonks is holding her wand to her throat, and speaking quite softly.

>>24737086It's origins are as a slur which "refers to individuals of mixed or pure American Indian ancestry, or other racially mixed origin."So yes, it means "mongrel". That's why we latched onto the snake being Gil.

As they are now we won't be seeing the lines and dots on dementors, must fix this ASAP as we want to be able to kill them to death the instant we see them roaming around.>>24737274It just dropped hints that it's positively ancient. That is highly relevant.
>>24737266Tchau is goodbye in Brazilian Portuguese
>>24737274>decides this is highly relevant and suspiciousNo, we just think it's cool that a gold-colored snake is using a phrase equivalent to the mating call of The Greater Mesopotamian Douchebag.
>>24737301Also, wait...>>24737058>"I don't really have one, cholo," he concedes. "It'sss been too long sssince any of usss have actually needed one.">>24735587>"Whysss you leaving me hangin man?

>>24737111Fourthing this idea.
>>24737111I'll throw in behind this one.
>>24737301>positively ancientNo, it said that ALL of them hadnt needed names for a long time. Probably since they've been in the petshop this long. Talk with the humans first, then continue talking with the snakes, get a feel for their personalities and such. THEN we decide which one we take (although Goldie is currently my favorite).
>>24737111Me too. I want someone else to be with us because I am a man that lives by one word, and that word is PARANOIA!
>>24737432You just reminded me that Hermione will be going to school too. She has to get in a different house, or we have to do something to keep her away from Ilya.
>>24737474She's got a Kaleidostick, I want her on the team as it were because of that. The second True Magic, it is not to be underestimated. Illya isn't a yandere. She can handle someone else coming after our D without going murder route because of that.

"Ummm... ah..." You look pleadingly to the snake, wondering if he had any ideas that could bail you out. "'Ey don't look at me, cholo," he says, shaking his head, "I'm stuck inside this cage. Can't do much outside""I was taught to never go with strangers," you tell her, giving her a funny look. "Yeah, I'm not supposed to walk off with random strangers, at all. So, yeah, I can't exactly go wandering off to talk with your boss."Tonk chuckles."Oh don't worry, kiddo, magic's solved that problem." Tonks waves her wand in front of you. "All you've got to do is speak into the wand, and you and Mr. Gargan will be able to talk with one another, okay?""Alright..." you say. "Adios, Mr. Snake.""SSSayonara, cholo.""Hello?" you ask into the older girl's wand."Greetings, young child!" A jovial man's voice comes from, somewhere behind you? But no one is there - it must be an effect of the spell. "Now, Miss Tonks has told me that you've been talking with some of the snakes - you haven't been trying to stir up any trouble with them, have you?""No!" you say, a bit too quickly. "I just thought it was cool, being able to talk to some of the animals is all - I didn't know that it wasn't allowed." You pause for a moment. "Do any other types of animal talk? I wonder what that hawk I was looking at would have to say...."The man on the other end just laughs. The pink haired girl is noticeable biting back some giggles herself.You...>Continue your line of apologetic questioning>Ask him what's so funny.>Demand to know if this was some clever ruse.>[OTHER]

>>24738054I think Chaos said that Voldy would be around the same level of hax as Arc given that we have MEoDP or something along those lines.
>>24738054Nrvnqsr;Chaos did say Voldemort is going to be just as crazy OP we are. He did mark Harry as his equal. And to for reference he said "Start at Araya and go up" for Voldemort's power.

>>24738119He's our equal. The more hax we and our team are, the more hax he and his will be to match it. In the end, he's trying to make it a true toss-up as to who will come out on top.
>>24736169Oh please, if anything he'd be running an entire favela in São Paulo. Hell, he'd have the whole city so scared that even the rich folks that go to night clubs in helicopters would be paying him tribute.
>>24736354O GOD TONKS IS EMOEN
Over the man's laughter, you continue."I mean, he looked kind of annoyed when I called him a little guy - it was almost like talking to Mr. Golden over here, except Mr. Golden talks back. And keeps calling me a cholo. Do you know what that means, mister?" You take a deep breath. "Also, he said that none of them had names, which was kind of weird because he was talking about 'old Esssmerelda when I walked in on them."The man's laughter intensifies."What's so funny?" you ask, your voice getting touch by a hint of anger. "Was this some sort of clever ruse - some kind of joke?"The man's coughs back his laughter. "Sorry, sorry, my boy. It's just - we have procedures for parseltongues coming into the store, based upon the actions of the last... person who we knew to have that gift." He gives another laught. "It's... funny how you're acting entirely contrary to our expectations, is all. What's your name, kid."You see no harm in telling him."Harry Potter."This time, even Tonks joins in with the laughter.You...>Ask why that's so funny.>Guess that this is probably about how the killing curse bounced off of you.>Ask if you can just purchase the snake now.>[OTHER]

>>24738434Oh yes. The hilarity. Our familiar knew the servant he fought in Heaven's Feel IV. They might become bros in a way. Kerry needs bros.
>>24738480I thought we were doing that to fuck with him. He's lost his meaning and life and has been deprived of his successor, so he needs conflict, if anything.
>>24738434>>24738480>>24738606Don't forget that thanks to the lack of angry manjew, the Gilgamesh that got summoned was a huge bro and not the "MONGREL" spewing douche we all knew.
>>24738606>hes been deprived of his successorwon't that end up being harry.in addition he actually has his wife and daughter this time.
>>24738645Gilgamesh was greater than Angry Manjew, though. He couldn't have been corrupted by it. His stats were lower, but that's because the body it gave him was closer to modern humanity than the imitation of his old body.>>24738652If everything in your life is devoted to reaching happiness, then happiness depreciates drastically in value. Trust me, I'm a truNEET.
"What's so funny?" you demand. You are quickly losing your patience with these buffoons - could they stop laughing at you and just explain why its so damned funny? "Does it have to do with the fact that my parents were murdered and their killer decided to bounce electric green lasers off of my forehead? Because that's not funny. That's not funny at all."Tonks straightens her composure, and tactfully shuts off the raucous guffaws of her employer. "Sorry, kiddo. It's just ironic, you have to understand.""What's so ironic about it?" "Well, you see," she says, "the last person who could speak Parseltongue sort of gave it a bad reputation; he was the same guy who gave you that scar on your forehead.""So what," you begin, "is it an evil talent or something - will people start thinking I'm gonna jump off the deep end in a split second because I like chatting with snakes?""Some might," she said, "others might not. The older families would be less inclined to, especially if they keep the old lore." She pats you on the shoulder. "There were a few Saints who were Parseltongues, throughout the centuries - St. Patrick, for instance, was probably the most famous of them.""So it's not inherently evil?" you ask."Nope!" she smiles. "No more evil than my gift, anyways."Suddenly, her hair changes to blue, and her face shifts into that of a completely different person. It's almost uncanny...You...>Ask her what she just did.>Ask her how Parseltongue even compares to that.>Ask her if you can purchase the snake now.>[OTHER]
>>24738702Call her an idiot.
>>24738606No he hasn't. In this world Kerry decided that a happy life with his family was more important that fulfilling his ideal. HF IV went down in a rather noblebright manner instead off the Grimdark manner we saw in Fate/Zero. Thus, he chose to save Iri and Illya with his wish. Saber got to be Saber Lilly as well. He also gets to pass down what remains of the Emiya crest to Illya due to her being his daughter. Harry is his true apprentice though, as Iri wouldn't want his PARANOIA and other habits being fully imparted to her.In other words, Kerry has lucked out hardcore in this timeline. I'm happy for him, dude went through so much, bout' time he lucked out.

>>24738672DM already stated that because the grail wasn't corrupted, a different incarnation of Gilgamesh was summoned.His lack of douchiness actually scored him Saber.

>>24738702>Ask her what she just did.
>>24738765I like you too. This, do it people.
>>24738761It's all a matter of opinion. Gilgamesh wasn't trying to be a douche. Hell, if you owned the world, wouldn't you feel you were entitled to anything you want?
>>24738768This seems like the right thing to ask.She knows what OUR thing's deal is; it's only fair that we ask her about hers.>>24738765And sure, go for this as well.
>>24738799Regardless your opinion on how to define his behaviour in canon, his lack of that behaviour scored him Seibah
>>24738849The "different incarnations" were mostly based on limiting abilities according to class. They still had their personalities. Therefore, it was more like someone named "Gilgamesh" than Gilgamesh himself.
>>24738849Correct, untainted grail summons Gil Post-Enkidu. That guy, like I said before, *really* mellowed him out. Made him into a bro-tier kind of guy. I've heard he acts more like that version in Fate/EXTRA CC. Which is good. He is a likable character, after he met Enkidu I mean.
>>24738898Where was this stated, would you know? I can't really recall anything like that.
>>24738898But he was summoned after he met Enkidu in cannon. Gil told Broskander on the final night in the 4th war that he only needs one friend, or something along those lines.
>>24738957>>24738940>>24738898Perhaps he was summoned in between his bromance with Enkidu and Enkidu's subsequent smiting?
>>24738983Or Proto Gil was summoned instead of Gil.
>>24738983Really, you're trying too hard to explain it based on him being the SAME Gil as Zero and Stay Night.When that's not necessary. considering the nature of the multiverse (it's not so much "multi" as it is "omni") that SOMEWHERE in the myriad Kaleidoscope of universes, is Prototype. Thus, there exist an infinite number of universes that have ProtoGil instead of DoucheGil. And this is one of them.That's the thing about having an infinite number of alternate realities be canon. You can kinda mix and match from the ones you glimpse.
>>24738983see >>24738991And read the previous threads please.
>>24738940GM said grail is untainted and summoned the "nice" version of Gilgamesh. "Nice" version being the version of his character after he'd been with Enkidu for a good long while. That Gil was a likable guy.>>24738983Was about to say that. Thanks for bringing it up.>>24738991Proto Gil is Gil after his bromance with Enkidu. Made him a much better person. It's why Saber let him giver her the D. Douche Gil would never stand a chance because Saber hates people like that. But Bro Gil? After a bit of Tsundere shenanigans... yep, she'd give it up, because at base he's a good man. Only good men get to plow her, if you catch my meaning.
>>24738702>>24738742this and >>24738768
>>24739066The way you worded it, I thought you were referencing some official material I had forgotten.
>>24739066No... Proto Gil is Proto Gil. Gil is GIl.
>>24739066>Proto Gil is Gil after his bromance with EnkiduSeriously, ProtGil is just a DIFFERENT Gil.Same as how ProtoSaber is a different King Arthur than Arturia.
>>24739085Not referencing shit, just going off of logic. The legends say Gil was once a giant douche. The people prayed to the gods to give him a distraction, something to get him out of their hair. The gods responded by creating Enkidu and arranging for him to meet Gil. Thus began their tale of adventure. It's a long story, but let's just say Gil did change over the course of the story.
>>24739151Either way, if I was leaving over some detail OP decided on that didn't make sense in the context of the base material, I probably would have chosen something more important than such a minor detail, the MEoDP or his Origin.

You stop and think for a moment. The implications of being able to shift into any body that you wish to possess are frightening."Your... your power doesn't have any mass murderers associated with it like mine does, does it?" you ask, more than a bit nervous."Not quite," she says, with a grin. "But... there are quite a few old legends in wizarding folklore, about how the metamorphmagus will steal your children away and take their place in the middle of the night."She shifts again, now to a form with the most absurd combinations of hair color and eye color Harry had ever seen. She flashes him a big grin, as she slowly shrinks herself down to someont his age and size. It's rather uncanny, the way that her flesh seems to simply mold itself anew."I could see how that might make people not like you..." you say, after a moment."Yeah." She grins at you, melting back to her original form. "So don't worry about it. Talking to snakes is small time, on the rankings of evil powers, after all."You nod, a little bit."Now, do you want to take Mr. Gold back home with you, then?">Yes.>No. (Browse Some More)>No. (Check out the Owl Emporium)>[OTHER]>Last post for this evening.

>>24739379Indeed, why not both? We have a good amount of dosh left to spend, we can afford both. Plus I still want to talk to bonafide 'MURRICA Eagle.The shit we could say as he claws people to death. "Be blinded by the might of 'MURRICA!" and other such cheasy, hilarious lines. And that we have Gil Snake for even more lol worthy commentary.Just because we in a grimdark setting, doesn't mean I can't desire a heaping helping of comic relief.
>>24739452But we're English.
>>24739358I want this>>24739379>>24739507So? 'MURRICA was founded by a bunch of posh well to do English gentlemen who more or less told the king to fuck off since he wouldnt listen to themWe are technically related to them like a cousin or that one bastard off spring everyone knows but ignores the scandalous origions off.Almost to well really as I remember Bush once asking the Queen of England to a 4th of July celebration once...yeah thats not awkward or anything...
>>24739507and murrica jokes get old fast
>>24739507We can still into humor. We can still laugh our asses off because we're spouting technically inappropriate lines. Harry is spiteful, he can get this kind of shit, especially if our Eagle is clawing out the eyes of an enemy.Let the potential for comedy take you, for later on there will be only suffering when the war against Vold really swings into gear. Get the comic relief while ye can anon, we'll be needing it to not go full PTSD mode by the end of this.>>24739583We use them sparingly. Not every time an eyeball is skewered by those talons, but if the opportunity presents itself we make the quip. A good comedian does not crack a certain joke any time he could, only when the situation is practically begging him to do so. That's why a certain joke stays funny. It's not overused, but it is used when appropriate.
>>24739437I mean, there's nothing keeping us from getting both of them. Gold seems personable enough, and the well-spoken one is also well-read(!?), which is a thing we probably should've been more surprised about to begin with once we got past the "we're talking to snakes" bit.>"I've read their papersss... the lassst ssspeaker wasss a bad apple."Third snake seems like a arrogant dick, so fuck him.>>24739452Yeah, there really isn't any reason for us to be terribly focused on the eagle in-character aside from eagles being fuckhuge and thus physically impressive in their own right.Not as impressive, nor as practical as actually being able to communicate, though.
>>24739604I think we should get the well-read snake and the Hawk myself, but I just want to see the eagle.
>>24739603>expecting /tg/ to show any restraintI take it you aren't a participant in Girls und Panzer Quest? We've got to deal with jackasses trying to make EVERY CHOICE into a 'MURRICA joke. We nip that shit in the bud or we'll have that here.
If we can keep our Parseltonguin to ourselves, as a secret, we'll have a spy in the the snake.
Alright, Ebook updated! http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb
>>24739604There are Three Snakes you've heard speaking - Gold Snake, Moe Snake, and Pompous Snake. Anything that began with "Silly" or "Sweety" was Moe Snake.Unless well spoken snake is Moe Snake, in which case, my bad.
>>24739642Then they are either poor players or a collection of trolls. A real player knows restraint. I live in 'Murrica and I enjoy those jokes immensely, but I know not to turn everything into that type of joke. Again, a joke only stays funny if it is used only when the situation begs for it to be made.For example, if we do get the eagle as a familiar and we end up in America and he claws out the eyes of a death eater near the Statue of Liberty? Then yes "BE BLINDED BY THE MIGHT OF 'MURRICA!" is what I will say.Eagle does that in jolly olde England? A mere, "Oooooh, I'm gonna have a nightmare tonight." is my response. Restraint, it's one of the keys to comedy.
>>24739764Yeah, it's that one.I was interpreting that snake as having more like a motherly/kindly authority figure tone than aiming for Moe, but if that was the intention, that's probably an even more amusing dynamic with Gold Snake than my interpretation.So yeah, my feelings still stand at taking those two snakes with us and leaving the pompous one to get picked up by an uptight Slytherin kid that fits his temperament better.
>>24739801I believe you when you say YOU would show restraint. But I've been on /tg/ long enough to know that at times pulling out a submachine gun and firing into the ceiling Harmon Rabb Jr style would be a better option than what /tg/ decides to do in pursuit of "lulz". We can't trust /tg/ with that kind of lulbait.
>>24739949It all depends really. We must always remember that anon on /tg/, while usually quite clever, has the tendency to go full retard for no good reason every so often.Also, this setting, or fusion of settings as it is, does not lend itself all too readily to 'Murrica jokes. This ain't MLA or Girls und Panzer, IRL politics has little to do with a world of Wizards and Magi. They are above nationality, beyond them. Something in the shadows behind the shadows of the world...
Throwing in a vote for buying gold snake and moe snake.
>>24740131I want gold snake and eagle. Hell, he's south of the border, he'll get the symbolism we're getting at and will likely be amused by it. Plus he might have known Gil in life, I just can't pass that possibility up. Not often you get to hear of history from a man/snake that was actually there to experience it.
>>24740232He's BRAZILIAN. Assuming a Brazilian will instantly recognize an Aztec legend relating to the Mexican Flag is both idiotic and more than a little racist.
>>24740232Why not all 3?
>>24740279Fuck it, BUY EVERYTHING.We can afford it!...Oh god, you guys are actually considering it now, aren't you? I was joking.
>>24740265He's ancient, very ancient if his line about not having need of a name for eons is true. He's been around since the Age of the gods if he is to be believed. He would have picked up on these things naturally.>>24740279We could swing all 3 given our dosh reserves, but I still want a good flying broom by the end of the day. It's very nice, being able to fly fast and agile like. Don't want to throw that possibility away. Plus, we lifted a spear. Know what goes good with a nice spear? A great mount. A great broom=great mount.>>24740311We can, but we also have other priorities. I still want 'good' quality broom and a device that'll enable us to talk to our master (i.e. Kiritsugu) while attending Hogwarts. When shit hits the fan, there isn't a better man to call upon for advice and/or aid.
>>24740311I was joking about all 3, but two snakes doesn't seem ridiculous for a parseltongue.
>>24740340You know he could have been speaking for snakes in general, right? He probably meant that it's been so long since any snake has needed a name that he and the other modern snakes don't have names.If anything, this Esmerelda is the one who might be ancient. Or he could have just been referring to her by the color of her scales. Something like "The female green-scaled one" that didn't get translated because he was using the Spanish/Portuguese variant of Parseltongue and Harry only knows the English variant.
>>24740340>line about not having need of a name for eonsHe never said that. He just said it had been a long time since he'd needed a name. "Long time" does not automatically mean eons.
>>24740424True, I'm probably just hoping but still, his words were intriguing to say the least. Plus, he's explicitly described as being gold in color. Not yellow, or golden yellow, just gold. That in itself is unusual. He's interesting, that's all I'm saying. When I see an interesting character, I start wanting to ask questions. I'll probably miss the next thread if it is held tomorrow, but please, ask a few more questions of him. Need to know how right or wrong I am about his glorious golden ass.
>>24740340>He's ancient, very ancient if his line about not having need of a name for eons is true.Yeah, agreed with these guys on this front.>>24740405>>24740424No point in extrapolating our attribution of Gil-isms to this snake (to the extent that we literally made Nero make it by sheer force of amusement.) to him ACTUALLY being the First Snake. That's a bit more than a little over the top.>>24740356>two snakes doesn't seem ridiculous for a parseltongue.And this gives us the amusing reasoning of "I got two so they have someone to talk to when they're alone." The overwhelming majority of people will go "Aw, isn't that cute.", and all the while we are doing this because we know that they are literally capable of speech, and leaving a sentient creature alone in a terrarium while we're in classes is cruel.
>>24740500>make it GOLD by sheer force of amusementAccidentally a crucial word, there. Whoops.
>>24740517I still pronounce it "Nrvnqsr" myself.
>>24738702>"There were a few Saints who were Parseltongues, throughout the centuries - St. Patrick, for instance, was probably the most famous of them."Okay I've suspected it for a while but now I know for sure, the OP's been reading Herwald von Einzbern.
>>24740752Basing a quest on a fanfiction, a crossover one no less, spells only disaster. If that is what you mean, I should hope you are wrong.
>>24740752Well he did drive out the snakes from Ireland somehow. Convincing them to leave would be a kind of miracle...
>>24740774Not saying he's based it on it, just that he's read it in the past.
>>24739358Yes, also the Hawk.Because we're Harry, cholo.
>>24739358Even if the gold snake isn't actually eons old, I love the idea of Harry being gullible enough to constantly be led on by the ridiculous stories of a snake. If we don't take him, I'll be very sad
>>24741576Yeah. I wonder what the Snake'll think of the Hawk
>MaybeGo back and chat to the snakes some more, without interruptions this time. See what they're like. Also ask Tonks and her boss if they could keep this a secret since the Boy Who Lived being able to talk to snakes might be considered a Big Deal.
