You are Christopher Phillips, previously just another teenage nerd living in a small English town, and despite all the ways your life has changed since you died yesterday, it seems that the universe still can't resist an opportunity to screw with you.The last two days have been very interesting. You're still a little worried about your new smooth, pale, slightly cold skin (unless it's warmed by someone else's body heat), and the deep, steadily growing hungers coiling in the back of your mind. But on the other hand, you now seem to have an almost supernatural talent for talking to girls, to the point where a girl who would have been totally out of your league on Saturday was wrapped around your fingers a few hours ago.Avril Dunway, the girl in question, is supposed to be coming to your house very shortly to pick up where you left off at lunchtime. Isabella Donaldson, your drop-dead gorgeous Biology partner, will be coming over later to finish your joint project. So of course your mother just had to remind you that tonight is the date of your little sister's school play.
You know what the play will be. It's Bugsy Malone, as poorly performed by a bunch of primary school kids. It's the same play every year, and it's always awful. Worse, by the time you've driven over there, waited for the play to start, watched the whole thing, and come back, both Avril and Isabella will have come and gone. Your mother is more enthusiastic than usual this year, though, because your sister is playing Blousey Brown. (She can't sing at all, but neither can any of the other girls in her year, so they just picked the girl who was slightly less likely to trip over her own feet halfway through the play.)Text Avril and Isabella to apologise, and go get ready for the play.Try to persuade your mother to let you stay home while she goes to the play.Invite Avril and/or Isabella to the play with you. You'll work out how to get an extra seat once you get there.Other

>>25872094Try to persuade your mother to let you stay home while she goes to the play.No problems, we just have to dominate Chris' mother.
>>25872094>Try to persuade your mother to let you stay home while she goes to the play.We have our priorities
>>25872094>Invite Avril to the play with you. You'll work out how to get an extra seat once you get there.>text Isabella to reschedule for tomorrow or whenever is appropriate.When's jill's birthday? because we have yet to acquire a present for that yet.
>>25872094[x]Invite Avril and/or Isabella to the play with you. You'll work out how to get an extra seat once you get there.
>>25872094How about we go to the play then ditch during the interval onwards by complaining that we are ill, that should give us time to get a present, see avril and/or see isabella?
>>25872317I think we should just pretend to be ill now. We have two girls coming over, and can get a present later. I vote we try to convince our dear mum.
>>25872282One week (next monday) from now. We have time.Try to persuade your mother to let you stay home while she goes to the play.
>>25872094Ok, tiebreaker vote for persuading your mother came in just as I was typing that there was a tie. Writing now.
>>25872348"Mum, I know that you're excited, but... are you sure I have to come too? It's the same play they did last year, and the year before, and you remember what it was like then.""I know, dear, but Sarah's in a starring role now. Don't you want to come and watch her sing?""You know as well as I do that Sarah can't sing for toffee, Mum. And besides, I've got that biology project to finish off. I already asked Isabella to come round later.""I know, dear, but it's the thought that counts. Isabella? Would that be the nice girl who was here yesterday? Well, at least you're being a little more sociable. Still, it's the only time your sister will be in a lead role like this... Let me think a moment."You know that your mother worries sometimes that you don't spend enough time with kids your own age. You could probably use that to push her decision a little. Of course, there's only so much she'll let you get away with - if you use that now, you probably won't be able to bring it up again any time soon, and it's basically your only trump card in these sorts of arguments.((Roll 2d6 to persuade your mother, I'll take the best of the first three. You need an 8+ to succeed on this, or an 11+ for a critical success. However, you can decide after you see the result whether you want to use the String that you have on your mother to manipulate her a little better - this manifests itself as a +3 bonus on the roll. One use only, though.))
>>25872425(( http://pastebin.com/fzCdh71A A little treat from last thread. Should be obvious where it fits in.))
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>25872425
Rolled 3, 5 = 8>>25872464Rerollan, with the right dice
>>25872468((It appears we're not getting a third roll, presumably because the very first roll was a natural critical success. Writing now.))
>>25872545"Well, alright. I suppose that project is fairly important. Just promise me there won't be any hanky-panky in the house. That Isabella was quite pretty."You roll your eyes at her. "I know, I know, but let a mother have her illusions of grandchildren some day. Anyway, I need to get going. There's some dinner in the fridge, you know my mobile number if there's an emergency, stay safe. See you around 8." She kisses you on the cheek and hurries out the door.You know Avril will be arriving soon, but you probably have a bit of time to prepare. Is there anything you want to do before she gets here?
>>25872600Make sure you are properly hydrated
>>25872600Have a nap.
>>25872662 hereOr better, meditate.
>>25872600((... Hmm. Well, writing now. I'll meld both of those together a little.))
Also plan a bit for cleaning up after the hanky panky.
Sorry, looks like I'm mixing this quest and Unknown quest.
>>25872743You grab a drink of water, clear off your bed and try to sit down and meditate. You've never really meditated before, but you know roughly how it goes - sit cross-legged, close your eyes and try to empty your mind. Clearing your mind turns out to be quite difficult, though - you know Avril will be coming over soon and images of her keep floating up into your mind, bent over, spread beneath you, moaning your name. You can feel yourself getting hungry again.After a few minutes, you hear a knock on the door, and when you go down, Avril is standing outside, still wearing her school uniform. "Hey Chris." She leans in and kisses you. Her tongue feels good, warming your mouth. "Shall we go upstairs?"She slides past you without waiting for an answer, pressing her body against yours as she passes, and almost glides up the stairs. As she reaches the top she turns and beckons you. "Coming?" You look up and can't help but catch a glimpse of pink skin and green hair beneath her skirt. Stay in control. Make her beg, and see what she's come up with since lunch time.Make her beg, and then send her away whatever she says. You don't want her here for too long.Take her. She wants you to, and you're so hungry.
>>25872856>Stay in control. Make her beg, and see what she's come up with since lunch time.
>>25872856first option!We're too cool to just give some slut some satisfaction.
>>25872856[✓] Stay in control. Make her beg, and see what she's come up with since lunch time.We eat, but we stay classy.
>>25872856Stay in control, and use her. But we need to finish up before Isabelle gets around, ideally with time for a quick shower.
>>25872856>green hair beneath her skirtHuh.>>25872911This. "I'm actually feeling pretty hungry. Why don't you see what's in the fridge? I hope you've come up with something good since lunch."
>>25872856((Writing now, next post shortly.))
>>25872983((You're fairly sure she's just consistent with her dyeing. Fairly sure.))
>>25873009Not that guy, but i'm not buying it.I feel like confronting her about it.
OP fell asleep?
>>25872993You close the door and follow her up the stairs, taking her gently by the arm and leading her into your room. Once inside, you put a hand on her shoulder and lightly but firmly press down. She bites her lip for a second and then sinks gracefully to her knees. Her hands go behind her back almost instinctively, thrusting her chest out a little."I told you at lunch that you'd need to beg for it, didn't I? Are you going to show me how well you can beg?""Y-yes, Chris. Please. I want you so much. I've been thinking about you ever since lunch. I want you to fuck me again. Any way you like, take me, use me. I'm yours, I.. promise. Even if you're not mine. Just please, make me feel like that again." She looks up at you, her hands coming forward to fumble a little with the buttons on her blouse. "I did what you said, I didn't touch myself at all. Please, Chris?"That's good enough. And you're getting very hungry now.You're not convinced. Make her beg some more.Other
>>25873238>[X]You're not convinced. Make her beg some more.
>>25873238>That's good enough. And you're getting very hungry now.
>>25873238>That's good enough. Get a sammich.
>>25873238second option.Lets go full-on evil dick and hope there are no repercussions.
>>25873238[X]That's good enough. And you're getting very hungry now.We're on a clock, can't mess around too much.
>>25873238>[X]That's good enough. And you're getting very hungry now."Alright, fine. I suppose that'll have to do. But next time I want you on your knees faster."
>>25873441You purse your lips a little. "I suppose that's good enough. But I want you on your knees faster next time."Avril smiles. "Of course, s - Chris." She leans forward and deftly unzips your trousers with her teeth, her hands going behind her back again as she does so.***You haven't looked at your watch in a while, but that must have been an hour and a half, maybe two hours. You had no idea you could feel this good and this exhausted at the same time. Your legs ache, your hips ache, your arms ache. You're filled with a warm, diffused feeling of satisfaction and fullness. Both of your hungers are completely quiet. Avril is curled up next to you on the bed, also too tired to move, and you're staring up at the ceiling. Even with your drink of water and brief rest earlier, your head is swimming a little. You don't want to move to get more water, though. You can feel yourself drifting off a little, like when you were trying to meditate earlier, but smoother. Between the exhaustion and the calmness of being so full, you feel as if you could just drift away...Let yourself relax and slip into a light trance. Who knows what you might find?Stay focused. Get yourself some water. You have things to do.
>>25873532>Stay focused. Get yourself some water. You have things to do.Got to stay strong for Isabella
>>25873532[X]Stay focused. Get yourself some water. You have things to do.

>>25873532>[x]Stay focused. Get yourself some water. You have things to do.we got to have the other option when isabella is just about to knock on the door dont we...also we have to take controol of this situation with avril. i feel like shit is gonna explode on us if we keep going like this.
>>25873582((Trust me, if you've just spent two solid hours fucking, you'll be a touch dehydrated by the end of it. It's not an immediate priority, but it'd be good to drink something.))
>>25873532>[X]Stay focused. Get yourself some water. You have things to do.Isabella could arrive any minute and we only have maybe an hour with her until our mother and sister get back. The trance can wait until tonight.
>>25873532>[x]Let yourself relax and slip into a light trance. Who knows what you might find?Gaze into the abyss time?
>>25873723((That was me, sorry.))
>>25873532You pull yourself to your feet, slipping your arm out from under Avril, and make your way downstairs to get a glass of water. After a moment's thought you pour another one and carry them back upstairs, passing one to Avril as she groggily sits up. "Hmm? Oh, uh, thanks Chris." She downs it in one gulp and looks around at her clothes scattered across the floor of the room. "I guess we should clear those up a bit?"You start to gather your own clothes back up as well and slowly help her get dressed, stopping her occasionally to lick her neck or nibble her collarbone. Once she's finally dressed, she turns back to you. "Uh... could I get my bra, as well? I mean, if you want to keep it, that's okay. I meant what I said before, about being yours. My mum might notice it's missing, though."You finish getting dressed, considering it. Keeping it would certainly give you a bit more of a hold over her. You might get her in trouble, though.Give it back. She's followed orders well enough, you might as well reward her.Keep it for now. She needs to understand her new place.Say something else.
>>25873893>keep it for now. She needs to understand her new place.Its useful to keep a blood doll under our thumb, just in case.
>>25873893>[X]Keep it for now. She needs to understand her new place.bitches need to learn their place
>>25873893>[x]Give it back. She's followed orders well enough, you might as well reward her.
>>25873893>[X]Keep it for now. She needs to understand her new place.
>>25873893>[x]Give it back. She's followed orders well enough, you might as well reward her.Let's not be a huge asshole and get her into trouble. Ask for her panty instead.
Keep it. and kick her out. We need to get ready for the hot one to show up.
>>25873893>Give it back. She's followed orders well enough, you might as well reward her.She has done well so let us throw her this bone
>>25873962And later see if we can get hot by rubbing it or putting it under our pillow.
>>25873964actually its a great idea, and i dont think any mother would notice a panty her girl is missing.win-win
>>25874009except she wasn't wearing any this morning, remember?
>>25874009>>25873964yeah, but if you were paying attention, she didn't show up wearing any panties. Bra is all she has left.
>>25873972>green haired pixie nymphomaniac with an irish accent>not the hot one
>>25874034>>25874040well then... ill be crying in the corner till qm's next post.
>[x] Keep itTell her to pretend she forgot it in a changing room and will look for it another day. Then maybe give it back later.
>>25873893"Later, maybe. But for now, I'm keeping it. It'll remind you that you're mine."Avril nods her head. "Yes sir - uh, yes, Chris. Whatever you want. I'll see you at school tomorrow, anyway." You finish getting dressed and take her to the door.Just as you open the door, you see Isabella walking up to it. She blinks for a second. "Oh, uh... Hi, Chris. Hi, Avril.""Hi, Isabella. See you tomorrow, Chris." Avril waves at you as she heads off, and Isabella turns to you, raising an eyebrow."I brought the rest of my notes on the project, and a book I found that looks like it's about genetics. I'm suddenly a little more interested in what that was about, though. I didn't know you had any projects with Avril Dunway." She walks in, hanging up her coat and handing you a folder of loose papers and a book from her bag.Tell her what's going on.Make up something vaguely convincing.Don't say anything about it, just take her to your room and get to work on the project.Other (specify).
>>25873893>[x]Give it back. She's followed orders well enough, you might as well reward her.If Isabella notices it in our room we'll have some explaining to do.
>>25874140>[X]Tell her what's going on.
>>25874140>Make up something vaguely convincing.She needed help with something so I offered to tutor her
>>25874140>Don't say anything about it, just take her to your room and get to work on the project.
>>25874140>Tell her what's going on.Be too specific. Show the bra, show her around, pointing where and how you fucked.
>>25874140>[x]Don't say anything about it, just take her to your room and get to work on the project.leave it to the bitch's imagination.
>>25874140"It's nothing to worry about," with the Will, "She just needed some help with some test she had to take. Just wanted a little tutoring."
>make up something vaguely convincing.and>OtherDo the project downstairs, in the living room. No need to show her your room just yet. Thats how ya deal with the ladies. Give her some slack, then reel her in, then give her some slack, then reel her in.
Dismiss it without being specific or lying. "We're friends. Anyway, the project..."Maybe a little Will to help.Alternatively, this >>25874193
>>25874140>Don't say anything about it, just take her to your room and get to work on the project. Give her a sly smile.
>>25874140[ X ]Tell her what's going on.
>>25874140>Yes sir - uh, yes, Chris.Next time she does this. correct her: "Don't call me Chris."
>>25874293Don't do this. Being called sir is nice, but you know what's better? Watching her squirm and trip over herself trying to address us properly.
>>25872449>http://pastebin.com/fzCdh71AReally nice. Very basic, but nice.
>>25874291"Oh, I'm just giving her a bit of tutoring. She wanted to catch up on a few things she didn't learn at her old school.""Hmmmph. Fair enough. Hope she's paying you up front. I don't think I'd trust that girl to pay me later. I never see her at any of my parties. Not that you come to my parties either, but I wouldn't expect you to. No offence. Just not exactly your scene. Anyway, that project." She heads up to your room like she did yesterday, leaving you to carry her notes and book upstairs. You glance at the book as you follow - it's on genetics, but it's much too general to give you anything that you haven't already gotten from other texts.You show Isabella the books you picked up from the library yesterday and the notes you've already made from them. She's not really following you on the Biology side of things, but she has a few surprisingly good points to make about the best ways to persuade and entice people with a presentation. You probably don't need to illustrate Mendelian inheritance squares with an illustration of a blonde, blue-eyed woman and a dark-haired, brown-eyed man, both completely naked, though. That might be a little over the top.Even with Isabella's sligtly lackluster contributions, the project is shaping up very well within an hour or so. If there's anything you want to say to her, take your chance now before she leaves."Actually, about those parties..."Try to seduce her againFinish the project and let her go.Other (specify)
>>25874481>"Actually, about those parties..."
>>25874481[X]Try to seduce her again
>>25874481>try to seduce her againgoes without saying. Why wouldnt we want to power trip?
Hey quick question, I know when I went to high school IN AMERICA! we had a strict clothes, piercing, and hair rules. Does Chris's school have such rules, and if so does that mean we are the only ones to see the green hair?
>>25874481>[x]Finish the project and let her go.
>>25874500>[x]"Actually, about those parties...""When's the next one? I might come along after all, check it out."No Will unless she's resistant to the idea.
>>25874481[x]Try to seduce her again.
>>25874481>Try to seduce her againBONER OVERWHELMING
>>25874542((Having a full school uniform (shirt & tie/blouse, trousers/skirts, smart black shoes) means that some British schools are a little more lax on other rules. Immediately visible piercings (ears, nose, etc.) would be frowned upon at least, and would have to be removed for sports, but Avril's only piercings are her nipples.))
>>25874585can we tell arvil to remove her piercings?
[X] "Actually, about those parties..."Should have told her about Avril and Chris. Isabella still sees Chris as an assexual being.
>>25874599Why would we do that?
>>25874585You didn't mention hair codes...Green hair isn't a natural color and extremely distracting.
>>25874619You make a good point. We should look into finding something even more kinky and tell her to wear those for us instead.
[X] "Actually, about those parties..."Guys, these arties will help unlock more people for Chris.
>>25874652Grab Isabella first, and then have her coordinate the parties so we can slip roofies in to allow better leverage for our wicked ways. To be honest though, if we go to a party, our focus will get lost. One girl at a time.
>>25874652Okay, fair enough. We should ask her about those parties and segue into seduction from there. "You know, I might be interested in one of your parties if it meant I could see more of you," sort of thing, and then proceed from there.
>>25874652>people are rewards to be unlocked through socializationLadies and gentlemen, I give you /tg/Also, I am all in favor of going to the parties.
>>25874481((Okay, writing now.))>>25874625((Hair colour was part of the 'other rules' I mentioned. It's not against school rules to have dyed hair, as long as you keep it clean and relatively tidy.))
>>25874701OK thanks for the clarification on hair.
>>25874720We should make her cycle hair colors. Carpet and drapes.
>>25874682That's what they actually do teach in various seminaries for Diplomats and managers.Is it... really all that untrue?
>>25874682God I love /tg/
>>25874720Also, he hair could actually just be green and we're fucking a fae-blood. We just don't know at this stage. At some point, probably need to take the time out of our busy pimpin' schedule to do some research on supernatural shit.
>>25874781This is why we need to hurry up and break Jill so she can do that for us.
>>25874740>>25874764>>25874682We are kind of a power-hungry revenant. Probably literally.
>>25874781Well that was the original line of my questioning, was green hair not allowed. If it wasn't then haha glamors. Still I guess we can ask somebody what color her hair is just in case.
>>25874781that, and also Isabella doesnt exactly seem to be all she appears either....hmmm
>>25874807[spoilers]Isabella's obviously The Queen, Avril the Fae and Jill will either be the Mortal or the Chosen depending how how our attempts to manipulate her go.[/spoiler]/wildspeculation
>>25874807Avril = possible faeIsabella = social powersMasami = possible gynoidJill = potential ghost
>>25874828Masami's crescent pendant says witch to me, but the fake hair thing throws that for a loop. I'm not sure what's going on with her. I agree about Jill being a ghost, though.
>>25874701"You know, I might actually be interested in coming to one of your parties. Just to see what all the fuss is about, you know.""Really?" Isabella looks at you with a more approving gaze, sizing you up a little. "Well... maybe. The more the merrier, I suppose. And you have been quite helpful already... alright. Thursday, my place, 8 o'clock onwards. Lie to your parents about where you're going and expect to be back late. If you can get away with it, bring some booze, but don't go getting yourself arrested. Don't go talking to me about it at school or anything. You might be a bit cooler than you look, but that doesn't make us friends or anything, alright? See if you can persuade that Avril chick to come too. I've asked her before and she actually turned me down. I can't let people get away with that sort of thing."She hands you the rest of the project notes and gathers up her things, sweeping off without bothering to say goodbye. She does give you another appraising look before she leaves, though, and a brief nod.You have maybe an hour before your parents will be back from the play. You could tidy up a bit more - Isabella didn't seem to notice much, but your room does still smell of sex. Or you could try meditating again - you're not as full as you were just after having your way with Avril, but you're a lot less hungry than you were before.Meditate. You might not get another chance soon.Clear up your room - don't want your parents catching on.Other
>>25874828Masami is clearly a ghost.
>>25874857>>25874828The "robot" theory is batshit crazy, but at the same time, I mean. She didn't socialize with people much, her hair could be artificial... For /tg/ it's a reasonably wild theory.
>>25874872>[X]Meditate. You might not get another chance soon.
>>25874872[x]Clear up your room - don't want your parents catching on.We can meditate later- like, late at night once everyone else has gone to bed. I want to see whether or not we actually need sleep anymore.
>>25874872>Other>Enter a state of active meditation. Project your spiritual energy into controlling your body via though. Have your body clean your room while you meditate.
>>25874872Clear up your room - don't want your parents catching on
>>25874872>[X]Medite. You might not get another chance soon.Isabella seems like a vapid bitch hardly worth our time. But that's just me. We've already sunk our claws deep enough into Avril and I think Jill should be next.
>>25874872>[x]Meditate. You might not get another chance soon.
>>25874914But Isabella's a major social player. We're not just interested in fucking bitches, we want more power, more control. She's a major step in getting a handle on a giant chunk of the social circle.
>>25874914Yeah, but it makes it all the sweeter when we can have Isabella begging for ways to apologize for her earlier resistance.
>>25874857It's a triple crescent. Does it look like some biohazard symbol, OP? I'd love to see my theroy of cancergirl disproven.
>>25874936Or a werewolf.
>>25874936((It's not quite the same as the biohazard symbol. Vaguely similar, but there's more of a noticeable gap in the centre where the three crescents overlap. Think a classic three-circles Venn diagram, with a gap in the outer edge of each circle.))
>>25874914well, thats just makes me want to break isabel even more. i agree with you that we should focus Jill next, though.
>>25873997[X]Clear up your room - don't want your parents catching on.Set up the bra under our pillow, to see if we can get hot this way.
>>25874972>>25874936>>25874857*sirens in the distance*I AM THE SON.I AM THE HEIR.
Isabella needs to learn that resistance is futile. Plus bitchy girls are so satisfying. I say focus on Isabella. Lets try and get some blood from her.
>>25874972ok, thanks>>25874951 cancergirl tried to explain the plastic hair/wig too.
>>25874914>>25874929I'm thinking we shouldn't fuck her but befriend her instead so we can go to parties and meet people.
>>25875070Agreed. Nothing more (yet). Just have her as a source of more food.
>>25874872((Writing now. Also I have a slightly clearer picture of the symbol if it would help peoples' mental imagery.))
>>25875106You lean back on your bed, focusing on that calm feeling you had an hour or so ago, trying to regain that relaxed, almost trance-like state.((Roll 2d6, best of first three. You need an 8+ to succeed here, or an 11+ for a critical success.))

>>25875157You relax and drift off, letting the mingled scents of Avril and yourself fill your nose as you try to meditate. You can feel your mind opening up connections that weren't there before.

>>25875301The Triple Crescent is a symbol of the triple goddess. The are several triple goddesses in Celtic mythology and include Anu, Danu as well as Brigid each within there own group.Triple Crescent symbolizes the three aspects of life - Birth, Life and Death. It is also called the triple moon of the goddess representing the maiden, mother and crone. Also the boy, man and matriarch. Both meanings state the three phases of existence and life.There are several styles of the Triple Crescent symbol, but all symbolize the three aspects of the moon—waxing, waning, and full moon, as well as Goddess, the feminine polarity of the universe.
>>25875357This looks like a spoiler.

As someone familier with MH, I would say for skins;Avril; MortalIsabell: queen for sureMAsami: hollow (offical bonus skin)Jill: possibly chosen
>>25875709>the unassuming nerd was the killer all along>she tried to keep you away>YOU DIDN'T LISTEN
OP you are a tease.
>>25875301I call it now; Biohazard symbol
>>25875487You lie back and relax, letting this strange array of visions carry you where they will. A few questions float to the surface of your mind: what am I? Am I dead? What happened to me? Why do I feel cold? You see yourself, in your room yesterday, the rope around your neck. You stumble, fall - from this outside viewpoint, you can clearly see your own neck snapping. It's not a pleasant sight. Isabella runs over, grabs a pair of scissors from your desk and cuts you down. There's no sound as she leans over you and starts applying CPR. After a minute, she slumps over you. Suddenly you see your back arch and your body convulse. Your mouth is wide open and although you can't hear anything, you must be screaming. Your eyes are a solid black from corner to corner for a moment, then a corpse-like white, then back to normal.The vision fades. You try to think of any other questions you might have. The party?Another vision snaps into focus. Two visions, side by side. In one, Cassandra is writhing beneath you on a large bed. Isabella stands to one side, watching, with a wide smirk on her face. She walks forward and places a hand on your shoulder, and you nod slightly. Then she stands behind you and clasps her hand around your throat. In the second vision, you're the one standing to the side and watching. Avril is on the bed in the centre of a group of people, all touching her or playing with her. Her eyes are glassy and blank. Isabella walks up to you and shakes your hand.
>>25875847 I was here first. We are a zombie? Are we breathing manually?
>>25875868The future looks good
>>25875868((Sorry for the delay, I had to re-phrase this several times to get it under the character limit.))You're shaken out of your alarming visions by the sound of the door slamming. Your parents are home from the play. You quickly move to tidy your room up a little, and head down to greet them. You tell your mother that you got distracted by a book and didn't have time for dinner, and she smiles and says you can eat with the rest of the family.The rest of the night passes without much incident, but as you sink into bed that night, you worry whether you'll dream about what you saw.The next morning you're up fairly early again, and take some time to think about your options. What do you want to focus on doing at school today?Focus on Jill.Focus on Avril.Focus on Masami.Focus on IsabellaOther
>>25875868((Hrmm. The rephrasing ended up cutting an important part out of one of the party visions. When Isabella clasps her hand around your throat, your eyes go blank and dazed, much like Avril's in the second vision.))
>>25875949>Focus on Jill.
>>25875868hmmm. so we are some sort of undead sexual vampire, that feeds on sex energy from other people?with this energy, we can use it to improve ourselves with greater charisma, or perhaps even better looks or great strength?This really is MH.i dig it
>>25875932I'm not quite sure what you are saying, can you re-phrase. I was calling dibs on masamis pendant being a biohazard symbol.
>>25875983((Maybe. But you're not quite at the level where you might be improving yourself yet. Nearly there.))
>>25875868Isabella is a threat. We need to get her locked down pronto.
>>25875949focus on Isabellahaving her gives us power. where she is Queen, we will be King.
>>25875949Focus on Jill and Avril, getting them to know each other
>>25875868>Isabella wants to try to break our toy.What devious twisted punishment could we possibly come up with to make up for such a travesty... hmmm?
>>25875868Alright, Isabella, clearly a Queen for those of us who read MH.Also, I get the feeling we can't be "friends" with her now. She's a major power player around here. And she may have also done stuff to us. She controls people, exerts power over them. Which is like, exactly what we do.We're predators after the same source of food, for lack of a better term. We're gonna have to either keep our hunting ground clear of her, or find a way to out-compete.
>>25875949[X]Focus on Jill.
>>25875949>[x]Otherfocus on ourselves and trying to figure out what we exactly are and what we are capable of. maybe do some research.i'm worried about those dreams now.i also dont want to give up avril to stuck-up bitch. if we want to have a chance against her, we need to understand ourself better.it seems she is also the one responsible for us being alive.
>>25875983incubi, maybe.>>25875991I mean I called it here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25854859/#p25866129 and OP told us it isn't here >>25874972
>>25875949focus on everyone except Isabella
>>25876013so in other words there is no better option than to try and get her under our finger.Predators don't have to be lonely on top of the food chain.besides, Isabella offers the greatest challenge. I relish challenge>Isabella
>>25875983Technically, we're a Ghoul (we are undead, and we hunger), and our Hunger is probably Power/Control, as per the mechanics of MH. We add hungers for sex by having sex with people. What >>25875996 is saying is that we don't have the move that gives us stuff for sating a Hunger.Spoiler'd for metagame
>>25876036Fair enough.>>25876048I concur with this, we can't let ourselves be pushed out by Isabella, we should give her some respect but show that she can't push us around either like any of her hangers on. We should be careful though, even if it looks like shes friends with us then its likely shes plotting our fall (the old frenemys thing)
>>25876048I mean, if we want to extend the metaphor, we either need to keep our "territory" separate, or figure out a way to "outcompete" Isabella on her turf. If that means we flip this shit on her and make her part our prey... she'll be kine just like the rest of them. But that'll probably involve beating her at her own game, on her turf. Real Hardmodo.We White Court Now
[x] Focus on CassandraBecause red head.
>>25876115>not wanting to become a powercouple
>>25876106I think we need to build our own power base and move from there first. We don't gain power and move fast, we won't be able to compete with her by the party, which seems to be bad juju for either us or our toy
>>25876136Judging from the visions we had, I don't think that's how Isabella rolls.
you people should keep in mind that we dont have to face isabella so soon. we were invited to party, but we are not obliged to go.we can postpone having to face her.i dont think rushing for her is a good idea.
>>25876137I'm not saying competing with her now. I'm saying we need to pay her lip service whilst holding our ground and consolidating (which is kind of what it sounds like you are saying)
>>25875949((Okay, writing now. We're not going to delve quite as deeply into all of our classes as we did yesterday, or things will bog down fast. You don't share all that many classes with people you know well, anyway.))
>>25876184kind of. I just think we should avoid rather than pay lip service. if she's as good at this game as I think she is, she'll see right through it
>>25876136thisIsabella is the most practical option. Chances are she believes we are just a normal guy, so she will not be expecting us to play the game as well as her.We can either use this time to get to know her, so we can better use it in the future. OR we use this time to do a little playful showing off. We aren't a victim anymore, and she will see it if we show her. Then we team up to take over the whole school, Hell, the whole town.a whole town of thralls for our games.>Isabella
Eating during her party is trouble. Taking Avril to the party is also trouble.As long as Chris controls himself and Avril doesn't go to the party, there shouldn't be any trouble
>>25876188((No, wait... on closer examination, there's a tie. 5 votes for Jill, 5 for Isabella. Tiebreaker needed.))
>>25876162Hrm, yeah, we apex predator now. We don't need to charge in like some story book hero. Bide time, find where she's weak. Strike. Which reminds me, Avril wouldn't go to her parties. We should ask her about what she knows or thinks about Isabella next time we see her. >>25876213Nah, first vision. Isabella was there when we died and came back. She may know something is up. Don't count on her not knowing shit's up with us.>>25876227Jill then.
>>25876227i change my vote from other to jill.
>>25876227jill, and one against Isabella
>>25876204If we avoid her then she might think that we are scared of her. I think we should neither avoid nor look for her.>>25876249>Which reminds me, Avril wouldn't go to her parties. We should ask her about what she knows or thinks about Isabella next time we see her.This seems a good plan to query Avril about her
Since we're meta-gaming anyway, what's a Queen? No, I'm pretty sure this Queen doesn't sing Bohemian Rhapsody.
>>25876289no pllease dont answer this. even with spoilers. if you are so curious, go read it on web.dont ruin this guys
>>25876310>She's totally a Queen guys! >Don't ruin this guys!
>>25876227Isabella?though the rest of you seem intent on not trying to smolder our way into her icy heart.I bet all she needs is a strong man to set her straight. Someone she cant manipulate
>>25876348>implying she needs powers to manipulate our inexperienced ass
>>25875301With the half brain I have around 11pm, in 20 min I found that exact image with the funny detail.
Tiebreaker is always the first post after I ask for one, guys. Writing has started.>>25876361Damn. I was sure I'd censored it enough. Please don't spoil things too much for people - you won't know any of that stuff in game, just the rough shape of the pendant.
>>25876289>>25876310Op has been good about giving us information about this; you aren't going to be losing out by looking it up but obviously its there if you are interested.>>25876348>>25876356We can probably hold our own against her if we need to, but she probably has alot more social leverage than we do and will be striking where we can't defend or protect (i.e not ourselves)
>>25876356>implying suddenly getting super powers isnt fuel enough to give our nerdy ass a god-complex strong enough to pass any will save.
>>25876361(but there is a metric ton of symbolism that could be found if you only had seen the thing and not be given this picture. )
>>25876289One of the other playbooks/skins in MH. Vague details inside the spoiler.The Queen is the manipulative social-dominant kind of character, who comes with a gang of followers at the start. They don't have to be supernatural, but judging from our Visions, Isabella might be. She could also be something entirely different. NPCs don't actually play by the same rules as PCs.
>>25876400*be losing out by not looking it up
Everyone seems intent of believing Isabella is out for our blood. Couldn't we just ask her where we stand? All this behind-the-scenes plotting will get tiresome.I say we put it all on the table at her party. Straight up tell her you'll be taking a claim of the student body. Then tell her you can either work together, or she best stay out of your way. confrontation please
Just got into the thread, I was fairly interested in Monsterhearts when someone mentioned it in a thread some days ago. Two things: anyone got the other two threads so I can read up?And might I join your merry round?
>>25876491>taking a claim of the student bodywut
>>258765071) It's all archived on suptg.2) No, you missed the chargen and so, you can't participate.
>>25876249Most of your classes today are quite dull - you have English, History, Physics and more Maths. You're smart enough that you're fairly good at all of them. You have History and Maths with Jill, and you take the chance during History to talk with her a little about whether she's talked any more with Masami, and ask her if she knows Avril at all. She tells you that she had a brief chat with Masami before school, and might meet her at the library later - her mother might be happier at her making a female friend than a male friend. She doesn't know much about Avril, except that she's a recent transfer student and hasn't been hanging out much with any of the obvious cliques. She's made a few friends, but no close ones. She's a little nervous when you briefly mention finding out more about the occult - her mother might have a few books on identifying witchcraft and demons, but they're not the sort of thing she really wants to look through.At lunch time, you get a tray and sit next to Jill in the lunch hall. She's understandably a touch surprised when Avril shows up and sits down across the table from the two of you.You're spending time with Jill right now - subtly let Avril know she should come back later.Try and get Jill and Avril introduced a bit. Tell Jill you're tutoring Avril, like you said to Isabella.Fill Jill in on exactly how you're filling Avril in.Go off for a brief private chat with Avril, come back to Jill later.Other
>>25876507((There's a link to the archive at the top of the thread. The more the merrier.))
>>25876537Try and get Jill and Avril introduced a bit. Tell Jill you're tutoring Avril, like you said to Isabella.
>>25876537>Fill Jill in on exactly how you're filling Avril in.
>>25876507http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Monsterhearts%20Questand feel free to join in, in short we're just discussing what to do today at school and possibly how to deal with the kind of social leader therein.
>>25876537>Try and get Jill and Avril introduced a bit. Tell Jill you're tutoring Avril, like you said to Isabella.
Fill Jill in exactly how you're filling Avril in.Nothing can go wrong with this.Also, insteresting to notice that this trhead is already archived, and with a -1 rating on it.
>>25876537>[x]Try and get Jill and Avril introduced a bit. Tell Jill you're tutoring Avril, like you said to Isabella.
>>25876491I dunno, open confrontation doesn't seem like the right move. And we don't know if the party is a good idea. It's pretty clear that depending on the circumstances, she'll either try to manipulate or control us (Via our weakness for pussy) or get a handle on our toy/food/pet. We did also just have a weird ass mystical vision while meditating, though, so see how much stock we take.But I seriously doubt she'd be prepared for an open conflict. Are we prepared for the consequences when shit gets violent and we have to cave in some skulls though?>>25876518Remember, Predator.
>>25876603There's a little bit of Monsterhearts hate on /tg/ right now. Doing that thing where the fixate on the small stuff and think about all the terrible people who could make terrible games out of it. As opposed to, y'know, finding the right people to play the right games.
Actually, considering the prophetic dream, we should probably work on sounding out Cassandra for a bit. Maybe if she knew about what Isabella planned, she would work with us to get a drop on Isabella. Or maybe she's entirely Isabella's, in which case I'd advocate breaking Isabella's hold over Cass.
>>25876537>[x]Try and get Jill and Avril introduced a bit. Tell Jill you're tutoring Avril, like you said to Isabella.This way we've got a single story, not a web of lies.Filling Jill in will devastate her, and we want to help her.
>>25876537Go off to talk to AvrilI am heartily against filling in jill on how we are fillin in Avril despite the ensuing luls
>>25876709Even if we go gently?
>>25876563((Interesting. If you're looking at what I think you're looking at, I'm afraid you're completely wrong, but it's still good to know there are other meanings. Now I can confuse the players even more. Muhahaha.))((Writing now.))
>>25876573Done the reading, now in for playing.
>>25876734Didn't read the rules, and don't care about metagaming. Must be said notheless that it is possible for MC to find some data in a few google queries.
>>25876537"Sorry, Jill. I should've mentioned that I've been tutoring Avril a bit. Getting her up to speed in things she didn't learn at her old school."Avril blinks for a second, then turns to Jill. "Yeah, Chris has been very helpful. He's teaching me about Biology, Physics... I thought I'd come over and say hi, see when the next, uh, tutoring session would be. You're Jill, right?""Uh, yes... Is it just Physics and Biology you need help with? When it comes to Maths or English I'm even better than Chris is." Jill is a tiny bit smug there, but only a tiny bit.Avril grins a bit, and winks at you. "I might have to take you up on that some time, but I'd have to ask Chris about it first - I don't want to muck with my current tutoring arrangements without his permission. So what do you do for fun, Jill?"((Having trouble with the spam filter. One moment please.))
>>25876940"I, uh, go to the library a lot. Sometimes I talk to Chris there. My mother doesn't like me hanging around with strange people too much. Boys and parties and so on are just chances for the Devil to get his hooks into you, she says."Avril laughs. "Oh, sweetie, I can promise you I'm not the Devil. Maybe your mother would be a little happier if a nice girl took you under her wing?"Jill stares at Avril's bright green hair. "Um, I'm not sure about that. I don't think she'd object too much to tutoring, but I try not to... upset her."Do you want to try and steer the discussion in any particular way, or just finish lunch and head to Maths?
>>25876962((There we go. No idea what words it was objecting to.))
>>25876962Be cool and dismissive.head off to Math.
>>25876991also, do alot of staring and looking detached.
>>25877014>>25876991Engage: Too Cool For School mode.
>>25876962Jill loves Escher, she probably know a lot about impossible drawings. We can ask about Masami's pendant to relax her, before keeping pressing her about her relation to her mother.
>>25876962steer it to maybe us and Avril tutoring Jill together sometime, with a surrepticious wink in Avril's direction when Jill's not looking
>>25876962get them to chat a bit about light topics, then whispering ask jill if she wants to invite avril to her b-day party (whisper so jill can refuse without being ashamed of avril being there)
>>25876962I say we get to maths but at least stay and listen to them intently whilst looking detached
>>25876962Agree with Jill on her being better at maths and English, for her confidence. Maybe make a joke of it, "Haha, don't worry Jill, I'd have pointed her in your direction if she needed help in one of your areas of expertise. Now that I know you're interested, though, I'll drop your name if those subjects come up in conversation with anyone else..."Besides that, keep Avril and Jill chatting, especially in the current topic, Devils and Jill's mother.
>>25876975It's probably random words that happen to be in URLs that have been spammed in the past. I'd be interested in trying to work it out if you could post the original in a pastebin.
>>25872449>"Ah! That's coooold..." She shivers a little, but keeps pressing her body against yours.So just how cold are we? Shouldn't she freak out by our body temperature? Unless she's not a normal human.
>>25876962>Oh, sweetie, I can promise you I'm not the DevilExact Words.
>>25877158not any devilI'd put her at summer court fae
>>25877146((You're not room temperature, but you're noticeably a degree or two colder than most people, if they're paying attention. As for why Avril didn't freak out, you can always ask her yourself at some point.))
>>25877145((I didn't save the original, unfortunately. I didn't cut out much, though. I think 'a lull in the conversation' is the main possible suspect.))
>>25877202We'll put it on the list>>25877191Well, obviously, she doesn't have the right attitude for Unseelie.
>>25877244we may have to have a "you tell me, I tell you" kind of thing between us and Avril soon
>>25877223"Conversation" sounds like it could be in advertising spam...
>>25877279You keep Jill and Avril chatting a little, agreeing with Jill that she's better than you at Maths and English, and suggesting that perhaps the two of you could tutor Avril together some time. As soon as Jill looks at her food, Avril glances over to you and gives you a wide grin, licking her lips. You wink back at her.You try and persuade Jill to talk a little more about her mother to Avril, but she's understandably nervous about the whole topic, dancing around it. Still, you do manage to quietly suggest to Jill that she should invite Avril to her party as well. She blinks at you a little, then nods tentatively.Avril finishes her salad quickly enough, and bounces off, asking you to text her the moment you decide when your next 'tutoring' session should be. You and Jill head off to Maths, which is a continuation of yesterday's discussion of Statistics. It's still not the most gripping of topics, but you and Jill have some nice conversations. Now that she's met Avril, Jill finds her a little odd (especially her hair), but very friendly. She's happy that both of you are making more friends lately.((Is there anything you want to sort out this afternoon or this evening, either with Jill, Avril or anyone else? If not we'll skip to the next interesting plot event, during school on Wednesday.))
>>25877444next plot event!Im actually really enjoying this OP.
>>25877444Let's have that chat with Avril. The game is afoot. Let's get some answers the conventional way, before we start asking the universe more questions.
>>25877444We should ask avril about isabella, scope her out before she has a chance to get the drop on us.
>>25877444Did Avril put a bra on today?
>>25877523Seconding. Mention how suspiciously thorough she's been dyeing the carpets, as well as her fondness for salads.This will be so humiliating if she's just a perfectly normal girl who was too polite to mention our coolness.
>>25877444ask avril what she thinks of isabella.
>>25877542((You don't see any suspicious bumps in her shirt where her piercings are, so she's probably wearing something there. You haven't checked under her skirt today.))
>>25877085Still this. Ask Jill, she would be the goto person for that.
>>25877599Well, we'll have to fix that.Though, actually, how Hungry are we? Don't think we've Eaten all day.
>>25877617((You haven't, no. You've been trying to put it out of your mind a bit. It's there in the back of your head, though, or in the pit of your stomach - whatever metaphor you prefer. Two hungers, twining around one another. Gnawing, waiting.))Writing now.
>>25877662we should do a little branching out.See what sort of other things can satiate our hunger. Or other people.
>>25877444>You keep Jill and Avril chatting a little, agreeing with Jill that she's better than you at Maths and English, and suggesting that perhaps the two of you could tutor Avril together some time. As soon as Jill looks at her food, Avril glances over to you and gives you a wide grin, licking her lips. You wink back at her.
Next plot device please.The further we can bring the story, the more details we will have on what exactly is going down in this damn place.
>>25877662You text Avril. "Can we meet after school, in the park? I want to ask you a few things."You wait on a bench in the park, the same one you and Jill were using Sunday evening. Avril shows up a few minutes after you. "Hi s- Hi, Chris. You wanted to ask me some stuff?""Yeah, I've been noticing a few odd things about Isabella. And she mentioned you don't come to her parties. Do you know something about her?"Avril looks as if she's got a bit of a sour taste in her mouth. "I don't know exactly, but I can tell that she makes bad bargains. Some of those people that hang around her, they're not getting their end of the deal. They're... hers. Not in the way that I'm yours. More complete, more insidious. They didn't choose to be hers, not really. I don't want to spend too much time around her, and... I mean, I wouldn't tell you what to do, but I think she's dangerous to you too. If she gets her claws into you, you'll have a hard time getting free.""And what about you? There's obviously something about you. The hair, the food. The promises. What are you really, Avril?"She blushes and looks at the floor. "I... shouldn't talk about that, really. I mean, if you insist - you're not *exactly* covered by that any more, but if I push my loopholes too much, it might cause problems. You can work out some of it for yourself, can't you? And I can... talk around things, a little. If it's you that asks." She blushes again and sits on the ground in front of the bench, by your feet.
>>25877950Geas detected. And we know not to accept any bargains from Isabella. She doesn't deal in good faith, apparently.Ask her to tell us what she feels like we can, and we'll solve the rest./tg/ hivemind bruteforce solution, go!
>>25877950((This is your chance to tap Avril for information, as long as you word things right. Suggest whatever you want to say to her, but watch how you say it.))
>>25877950"Tell me everything..."comforting evil grin time
>>25878018I will reproduce with you if you tell me>Upon Reproduce
>>25877950Explain to her about us and then inquire if she would happen to be associated with certain courts from Ireland
>>25878056>>25878034WHOA WHOA PEOPLE. Have you never negotiated with Fae before? This is a bad way to do it!
>>25877950>>25878018"I've figured some of it out, yes. Where were you from in Ireland? Who were your family? What brings you here?"
>>25877950"What do you know about... things that cant really be explained? I mean, have you ever been a part of something that most people would call you crazy for believing? I think you could help me find some answers."
>>25877950What is the closest analogy to a mythological being that you can come up with to describe what you are?
>>25878018>>25878002>Ask her to tell us what she feels like we can, and we'll solve the rest.Rather, ask her to tell us what information she feel like she can. If that's not specific enough, we'll first ask if she promised someone she could talk about what she is. Or, I mean, we can just jump right into it, an ask what she know about the Fair Folk. Or another good oblique question is how she feels about Cold Iron.>>25878056Question for question, answer for answer is a good game, but she sounds like she's made promises to watch what she says. She literally cannot tell us the straight up truth.
>>25878002We got two visions of Isabella's party when we meditated, one featuring Avril, one without. Those are what'll happen to us if we attend, depending on whether or not we bring Avril along, unless we can resist her.That'd be a risky thing to try. Maybe better to understand more about ourselves and our powers, and about Avril and Isabella, before we do anything that might lead to a confrontation with her.
>>25878081And have you? We might want to ask /x/ about negotiating with fae.
>>25878127We should probably find out if there's a way to get her off the hook with whatever contract she's made that's keeping her from speaking. No only would the information be useful, but it would indebt her to us.
>>25878081taking risks is better than this quiet stagnation. We hunger
>>25878111We need to be subtle, to get through those loopholes. Maybe "What's your favourite fairytale?" or something like that, open for her to fill with details and pointing the conversation in a certain direction, but hypothetical.We could ask open kind of questions about the things we already asked: "What's the significance of the colour green? What's special about your salads?"
>>25878170Only in WoD, but this guy knows what he's talking about.>>25878127If she's sworn to watch what she says, we need to be very, very specific with our wording t get a coherent answer from her.
((Writing now. This one, again, may take a little while as I work out exactly how Avril can phrase her answers.))
>>25877950"for now, tell me what you feel comfortable with telling. from ten we'll see where this conversation goes."
>>25878002This, can't risk getting her into trouble. No one breaks our toy except us after all.
>>25878225I'm really liking this quest, OP, and I'm not one of the anons who's said so already.Avril's whole "You can work it out yourself, right?" and "I can talk around things..." is especially tantalising.
>>25878225Ask her if she thinks her parents are Fair or unfair, folk.
>>25878284and what if they are fair folk, but they are not "fair folk" ? lol
>>25878300She'll know what we mean, though. That's the whole point, we need subtlty and innuendo
>>25878300I think she will get our implicit meaning being from Ireland
I take it your parents were members of the gentry and the sort who you really didn't want to get caught badmouthing?
>>25878225"My favourite fairy tale?" Avril pauses to think for a moment, grinning up at you. "Does A Midsummer Night's Dream count? That's always a good one. Very funny. Or Sleeping Beauty. A bit more somber. But everything works out well in the end.""Where were you from in Ireland? Who were your family? What brings you here?""Oh, nowhere special. Nice little place. Very near to a hill. Very near indeed. My family were... I suppose you might call them the gentry. Not so well to do as they used to be, though. Not many of our sort of people left anymore. I suppose that's one of the reasons I'm here. We're... spreading out a little. Looking for anyone else like us. Or close enough to talk to. Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who understands you, right?""I suppose you might say your parents were very fair folk, huh?"She laughs, a few soft but elegant sounds. "Oh, absolutely. Fairness is very important to us. In a lot of things." She looks at you carefully. "You're very perceptive, did you know that? Very well-spoken. I think my parents would approve. Anything else?""What's so special about the colour green? Is it anything to do with your salads?""Oh, that's an easy one. The salads are just about not taking something that wasn't offered. Simple enough. The green?" She grins. "I like it. It makes me stand out. And it attracts interesting people."((Sorry, that took way more work than I thought it would. Second part in a sec.))
>>25878786We've hit the bump limit, btw, OP. Probably want to start a new thread after this.
>>25878786"Might there be any way to... renegotiate things, so that you can speak more freely to me?"Avril frowns. "That's... not something I'd be able to do on my own. You'd have to speak directly to my father. I think he'd like you, but that doesn't mean he'd go easy on you. Especially since it's meant to be for my own good.""What's the closest analogy to a mythical being you can give me, to describe what you are?""Analogies are a tricky thing. Especially mythological ones. A fictional being, close to me?" She thinks for a moment. "An elf, maybe? What you think of as an elf is totally mythological. But it might help.""Was that everything, si- um, Chris?"
>>25878815((If people have many more questions, I may head to bed once I'm done answering them and pick up with Wednesday in the next thread, on Tuesday afternoon. It's 1:30am at the moment.))
>>25878858"Everything? never." then proceed to grab her by the back of the haed and gently yet forcibly kiss her.
>>25878858"one more thing, my fair beauty,what do you think about ME?"
>>25878858Do you think Isabella is more like you, me, or something else entirely?
>>25878858"yes thank you.... but i think im not quite done with you yet"lets sate our hunger
>>25878900Fade to black
>>25878897Ask about Jill too.
>>25878786>>25878858Grin at her compliment about our perceptiveness, then "What's the cause of your family's woes? People like me? Your own kind?""The people you're looking for... What kind of people are 'like you'? Am I?"Maybe ask about the 'sir' thing too. I thought she was just submissive, but if rules and analogies and distinctions over what's offered are so important, we should pay attention to any quirky language.
>>25878888I too are curious about the depth of her feelings.
>>25878995Tell her we will ignor her if sje dosen't call us sir>i an sorry for my bad grammar
>>25878995We've determined she's Fae, of some sort. She's "ours" so she's like, loyal or something. She was raised by traditional, "noble" people, she's offering respect.May need to go back and check the specifics of early interactions with her. Avril seems nice, and doesn't exactly ask us for much, but we should be wary of taking or giving things to her or her people. We may end up accruing (or inflicting) debts we don't intend. Which would be bad.
>>25879113So no more sniffing her used bra at night? ;_;
>>25879145Eh, that was more of a token of her esteem, I think. Y'know, since ladies don't exactly pack silk scarves or handkerchiefs so much these days.
>>25879113She seems smart and seems to know her game, like when she asked for a commitment promise at the start. I don't think she would unknowingly trap us in a promise and at the same time I don't think that asking for something or taking something given counts. So whilst it may be worth going back and checking, i don't think we are too heavily engaged
>>25879281we havent madeany deals, i dont remember making any promises either.from the start, we first saw her as an easy girl, shutting down when she act too clingy; and then turned her into a sub/pet. so we are in the clean for now. and now that everything is out in open, it should be easy for us to avoid that.
>>25878858I support ending it with the "No, not everything..." and pulling her in for a kiss and sating our hungers.But before that, asking a bit about the nature of bargains, or some of the rules of them, may be good. Definitely what bargains she knows or thinks we have.May be worth it to ask her what question she thinks we should ask, if that doesn't incur a debt.
>>25879372We keep asking her to beg, and we feed off her.
>>25879496thats neither a deal nor a promise.
>>25879163"Almost everything, my fair beauty." You lean down and give her a deep kiss. "What do you think about me?""Um, in terms of my feelings, or in terms of... what you are now? I think I, uh, made my feelings pretty clear." She blushes a little. "I wouldn't make a promise like that unless I meant it. And I definitely got something in return, something I don't think I could get anywhere else, so it's fairly bargained. As for what you are... a soul bound to a body, the same soul and the same body, but not the same binding as it was before. There's something else - I don't recognise it, it's not one of us. Something you made a bargain with without consciously acknowledging it, maybe. But it's a fair bargain. I don't think I could get it out without severing the binding, I'm sorry.""Well, that will have to do for now. One last thing."You draw Avril up onto your lap, letting her straddle your legs. The park is fairly abandoned, and you're just two teenagers sitting together from a distance. You kiss her deeply to stifle her moans.***You return to your house a bit later than usual, feeling well fed. As you lie down, you reflect a little on the last three days. You feel even better than before, in fact. Feeding from Avril earlier left you flush with power. You wonder whether you'll feel any different when you wake.((This will be the last story post for tonight. In a moment, however, you'll get a series of options for what Chris can do to expand on his abilities.))
>>25879496order, not deal. by Fae law, if I rember it, neither count as a bargain struck nor a favor owed
>>25879592>Fae lawAnyone has a canon link for that? I found http://www.aelyria.com/forums/worldforge/59458-laws-fae-second-draft.html but I don't know at all if it is the reference or not.
>>25879592>>25879542>>25879496Sounds like that's part of our larger bargain with her in this relationship, or whatever.Also, not really sure our Hunger actually takes anything from the people who "feed" us. More just that being in contact with the thing we Hunger for temporarily fills some aching basic need in our cold, dead soul.
>>25879581(( Chris's options for advancement:More generally persuasiveBetter able to keep your cool, and seduce others.Stronger, tougher, fasterMore at home with meditation, trances and visionsSatiating your hungers will give you greater rewards.You came back from death once. Maybe you could do it again. Something else, something more unusual or unique? Ask, and you may or may not receive.))
>>25879652i believe we will actually gain something by feeding that hunger. shoudl find out about it soon enough, aybe next thread.
>>25879666We feed a lot, so my vote is for sating the Hunger, or for +1 Volatile, since we may need to have more running and fighting in our future.
>>25879666>Better able to keep your cool, and seduce others.
>>25879666(( Those of you metagaming a little may notice options missing from this list. Some of them just don't fit with the character as it's been established so far, and two of them you have already, although one hasn't come into play yet. If you want to suggest moves from another playbook, feel free - I can't possibly list all of them. ))
>>25879666Satiating your hungers will give you greater rewards.
>>25879666How many are we allowed to pick, OP?
>>25879726This or >>25879699 That
>>25879666 either of[ x ] Better able to keep your cool, and seduce others.[ x ] Satiating your hungers will give you greater rewards.
>>25879666either persuasion or seductionwe diplomancer
>>25879666>[x]More generally persuasivewe are playing mostly diplomatic. lets go for full will manipulating zombie powa.or>Satiating your hungers will give you greater rewards.for benefits in the long run.
>>25879738((Sorry. Pick just one. Voting will stay open until the end of the thread, although that will probably be fairly soon - we're on page 7 already. The next thread will be on Tuesday, around the same time this one was.))
>>25879652Technically, we at least take some of their time.
>>25879666Satiating your hungers will give you greater rewards.Got to build a strong base first.
>>25879688What I'm saying is I don't think the people who feed us have to give anything up to sate the Hunger. Rather, just the experience of exerting or having power, or having sex with Avril, fills the need. >>25879720We have Disaffected, and since we remember how we died, I assume Ending? Though Watchful Golem would be cool it doesn't fit with anything we've done. the Infernal's Dark Recruiter would be funny and appropriate, but I don't think any of us would win the vote with moves from another playbook just yet. We should save that stuff for some more dramatic moment.
>>25879754Better able to keep your cool, and seduce others.But I might also suggest 'cold as ice' from the vampire skin
>More generally persuasive.This is a good defense. We need a good defense before we can focus on wooing Isabella. Besides, The more in control and powerful we are, the easier it will be to satisfy Hunger. And the more we satisfy our hunger, the stronger we will become.
>>25879666>[x]Better able to keep your cool, and seduce others.>[x]More at home with meditation, trances and visionsEither of these, whichever is getting the most votes (currently keeping cool).We don't seem to be in great danger, so I don't think we need the come back again skill yet.> Something else, something more unusual or unique? Ask, and you may or may not receive.Something that might make us more effective, in any way, against other supernatural entities? Or better able to perceive them and learn about ones we meet?We should ask Avril about Masami some time. And about Jill and her mother, just to see if she got a hunch about them.
>>25879808then i agree, i dont think we take anything away from other when we ?feed? either. avril didnt give any sigh of such a thing.
>>25879666begin working up defenses against supernatural bindings?
>>25879720((The thread has been archived at the usual place, http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Monsterhearts%20Quest . The last update was a bit over twenty minutes ago - hopefully the last few posts will be archived before the thread 404s.))
>>25879956You can manually update it again by submitting the thread again. That won't overwrite the original name/description/tags, but you still can't leave those fields blank when resubmitting. If nobody does, it'll probably still manage to do it automatically before 404, since it happened every two hours and we're only on page 7.
>>25879644I'm still /r/ing some canon Fae law, please.
>>25880042((Ah, I didn't know resubmitting was allowed. Thank you.))
>>25880058((Getting the precise details of Fae Law out of Avril will be long and frustrating, as there's quite a lot she can't talk about directly. You can try to get more out of her in later threads, or go to someone who can speak more freely.))
>>25880066er.... any chance of more of the fade to black scenes?
>>25880058It's folk-tales. There is no canon, necessarily. There are some widely used ideas, but it's not like the Bible or a fictional work. There's no authority to say one way or the other.If you're asking about in Monsterhearts, there aren't any. That details of the supernatural are up to the group. We'd have to figure out in game.
>>25880094when's the next thread?
>>25880097Absolutely, if people want them. Writing long scenes of reasonably-okay erotica is a much slower process than writing short quest posts, though, so they'll likely lag behind the main story. Also, the longer ones may get a bit repetitive - there's only so many ways one can say 'and they fucked a lot'.>>25880114Tuesday, the 9th, at the same time (roughly) as this one was.
>>25880097i assume we'll get a pastebin in the next thread for park scene, similar to the one we got today.
>>25880157Not to mention the scene before that, when we had Avril over after class.
>>25880137thanks MH!and yeah.... i would be pretty interested in the fade-to-black stuff. im voting yes
>>25880110 >>25880094well, okay. Thanks.
