Dreams.They tell us who we are even if we turn our eyes from it. They can tell us things we want to forget or we forgot to remember. They're a blessing and a curse. They can hurt us just as much as they help us. What kind of dreams will I have tonight? I get scared when I go to bed, thinking of that question.Sometimes I have happy dreams and sometimes I have bad dreams. One that has plagued me recently though is one I remember vividly. I stand there on top of a skyscraper overlooking a city of flames. The heat in the air embraces my body. Constricts my lungs so I can't breathe. Sweat trickles down my brow. A sharp pain seizes my body. After all this I hear a voice from afar:"Will you wake me?" her voice is a stark contrast to the scene in front of me. Her voice is calm, cool while the fire below continues to roar. That question, will I wake her?>No, I don't know who you are.>Yes, as long as you let me escape this nightmare.>Custom
>>26666192>Yes, as long as you let me escape this nightmare.
>>26666192>No, I don't know who you are.
>>26666192>Custom"If it helps me get laid."
Something like TV static corrodes my vision. I suddenly feel detached from both the dream and the waking world. "Yes, as long as you let me escape this nightmare."I answer curtly.The heat was too much.I had to escape."You will wake me, in the end? Thank you. Thank you very much." the voice says nothing more after that.Per my request the nightmare has ended. The flames dissipate. The city below me vanishes into darkness. "Gghhh." though something continues to choke me. It feels like invisible hands but-"HAH!" I breathe out. Suddenly the scene shifts. After letting my breath out - I realize that I finally woke up. The sweat that accumulated during the nightmare must have been me sweating in the real world. "Oi." I look down to the book in front of me. [1/2]
"Mmmmmgh." I can't muster much more than a mumble after that mental display. "Hello...?" I speak into the dark corners of the room behind me. It doesn't take much for me to notice a blanket draped over my shoulders. My familiar did this, didn't she? "Raid, thank you." I say her name with a smile. Now what was I doing before I woke up?Right, right, I was reattuning my magic flow into ... well, Raid.I power Raid with my innate magical power and if I don't reattune the flow every once and a while, it'll 'break' so to say. Now... where do I begin?>Basically combat depends on the SSS system but a bit modified. Here you will attune the familiar Raid's stats. Decide through discussion or dice rolls. Stats are as follows:>Strength (Sinew): Physical toughness and strength. >Dexterity (Sleight): Represents fine dexterity and adroitness.>Intelligence (Smarts): Represents mental acuity and depths of knowledge. Applies to magic and recollection of memory.>Charisma (Sass): represents social acumen and strength of character. Checks would involve convincing someone to do something. Applies to negotiation.>Since Raid will develop as the story goes, you will have 180 points to distribute among these four stats. At base, they are 30. Go to town.

I say the words of power required for the desired attunement. The white-silver grimoire in front of me flutters its pages open. An image of a running, gold river passes through my mind. It goes through my arms, my spine and down to the waistline. It creeps further down til it reaches the tips of my toes. Afterward it's expelled from me to Raid. "Sigh..." afterward I feel drained. Now I know the reason why I fell asleep to begin with."I shouldn't over do it.""No, you shouldn't." I turn to see the light-brown haired Beastkin wolf girl in the hallway. Her arms are crossed, her golden eyes are staring right through me. "What have I told you about this?""Uh, not to do it?" I smile wryly.She isn't amused."You're aware of the time, Itonami?""I am. It's ... 2 in the morning?""Try again."I frown. Really, I don't know what will happen if this little talk continues. She's already mad as it is.>I'll keep the conversation going to see if I can wiggle my way out of it.>I'll apologize up front. It's best to own up to mistakes.>Custom7 minute time limit on voting. Will extend for 3 minutes if necessary (not enough votes, etc)
>>26666925>I'll keep the conversation going to see if I can wiggle my way out of it.
>>26666925Apologize up front.
>>26666925>I'll apologize up front. It's best to own up to mistakes.She's patient with us, but it's good to be relatively responsible.
I'll apologize up front. There's no point in getting into a fight when I'm half-tired as it is. "I'm sorry, Raid. I just wanted to be of use to my parents. That's all."That's right. This strange white grimoire in front of me is the sacred treasure of the Juritsu family line, the Akashic Grimoire. My parents, my entire family put a lot of pressure on me as a Recorder. The reason I spoke about dreams earlier? It's because that is another power of mine. To see other worlds, to dream through the eyes of many. That's why I hate going to sleep.The good and bad dreams I spoke of? They may be a dream for me, but they are reality for another. The words I spoke earlier were not mine but anothers. I have no control over it. It happens because it happens. "Your family should realize that if they want you to keep the line going, they shouldn't work you to death." Raid scoffs to the side as she says that."They're just doing what they consider best for me. They... want me to work hard, you know? My family has expecations and I have to fulfill them, as the last child. I dunno if you understand that or not.""I understand that my Master is a bit too naive and a bit too forgiving." she continues to stare at me.>I am not. Do you even have a family to speak of, Raid? Do you understand my feelings?>Maybe I am, I won't deny that. You have a point, Raid, but I'm just a child now - what do you expect me to do about this arrangement?>You're right. Too right. I have no desires of my own so I just follow the flow. >Custom

Please put quest in the subject field next time.
"Maybe I am, I won't deny that. You have a point, Raid, I'm just a child now - what do you expect me to do about this arrangement?""Choosing a different one for yourself would be a good start." "Again, did you miss the child part? Fourteen here.""Practically an adult where I come from.""I think Beastkin and Summoners live in completely different worlds. Literally. Your customs don't match ours." it's true. Raid is from another world entirely, summoned for the sole purpose of protecting the Juritsu family. I wonder though, was she summoned because she agreed to it or is she some kind of slave? I never found that out."You don't say?" Raid raises a brow, her voice dripping with sarcasm."Mmm." I mince words and just end up mumbling rather than speaking coherently. "Well?" her eyes narrow.>I'll find my own path soon, but not now. If an option or chance comes my way, I'll take it. I'll leave this life behind. That okay?>Why are you so hung up on this? Why do you care about which direction my life goes?>I'll remain silent... I don't think I can make a decision like this right now.>Custom
>>26667293>>I'll remain silent... I don't think I can make a decision like this right now.
>>26667293>Why are you so hung up on this? Why do you care about which direction my life goes?She sounds awfully invested in us.
>>26667293>What exactly would you do, then, if you were in my place?
>>26667293>I'll find my own path soon, but not now. If an option or chance comes my way, I'll take it. I'll leave this life behind. That okay?
>>26667293>>Why are you so hung up on this? Why do you care about which direction my life goes?
"What exactly would you do, then, if you were in my place?" the words fire out of my mouth as soon as they come to mind."Why do you think I'm suggesting this to begin with?"My eyes widen, "Huh?""Everytime I watch you work away at those books. Everytime I watch you open that grimoire, I start thinking 'you're a kid, so why don't you act like it?'... then I realize you don't have a single desire to do that. You would rather dedicate yourself to those books and family rather than find something for yourself." her voice is pained as she says this. To be honest, it catches me off guard. "Raid, I.. uh.""But in the end, it's your life and you make your own decisions. I guess I got a little to confident you'd accept my advice. I'm just a familiar, after all.""Uh." I try to find the right words to say.>No, you're not just a familiar. You're a friend of mine, Raid. >You're right, you're just a familiar. That's all you are.>Nah, you're family. Don't forget it, kay?>Custom
>>26667557>No, you're not just a familiar. You're a friend of mine, Raid.

>>26667557>You're not just a familiar, you are my waifu.

"No, yo'ure not just a familiar. You're a friend of mine, Raid.""Nice of you to say so." she sighs as she turns around. Her arms fold while she looks on over at my bed. "Alright, friends listen to each other, right?""Of course." I nod."Get in bed.""I could say 'well played' but I kind of saw this coming.""Good, that makes this that much easier then - doesn't it?" without hesitation, Raid walks over, pulls me up from the chair and takes me over to the bed in a princess carry. "Go to sleep." she throws the covers over me. "Ah-""You're exhausted, aren't you? Get some sleep. Those books aren't going anywhere.">I don't want to sleep, Raid. I think I'll stay up. The last dream I had was something I don't want to experience again.>Alright, fine, you win. Friends listen to friends. You better make one hell of a breakfast for me when I wake up!>HOW about YOU sleep with me tonight, Raid?>What were you doing up this late anyway?>Custom

>What were you doing up this late anyway?
>>26667835>This. We don't need no sass.
>>26667800>HOW about YOU sleep with me tonight, Raid?
"How about you sleep with me tonight, Raid?~" I say that with a grin. "Nope. Too good for you." she completely rights me off. The two of us a share a laugh. "Though Raid uh, what were you up at night for?""I was a bit worried about you've been neglecting your health. That's all.""Oh, alright, I appreciate it." "I know you do. So make sure to get some sleep, alright? Not just a light nap either - get a full night's sleep."[1/2]
>>26667800"Okay, Raid. I'll get some sleep. You too, though. You shouldn't have to stay up just because I have terrible sleeping habits. And even if she's my familiar, I can't let my friend exhaust herself worrying over me, can I? Good night, Raid."
>>26668032>"Nope. Too good for you." she completely rights me off. The two of us a share a laugh.D'awwwwwwww....
"I will but..." I hesitate to speak anymore. The nightmare. The flames engulfing the city below. I can't help but wonder - who was I seeing that from? Who was the host of that dream? I guess I'll never know. "I don't want to dream again. I'd like to stop dreaming, if possible.""Stop dreaming? That's not possible, you know.""I've been looking into some spells to see if I could make that happen and nothing.""Well for one, magic like that won't work on you. You and your entire family are freaks in that regard. The ability of the Recorder was passed down to you, right? You don't 'dream' in the strict sense but I guess you already get that.""How do you know about-""Been your familiar for a long time. I know a LITTLE bit about your powers.""Right.""Now sleep alrea-" Raid stops talking. She leans in. "Itonami, are you alright? Speak to me." for some reason she seems concerned. >Perfectly fine. Why do you look so worried?>Now that you mention it, I feel strangely light headed.>Just scared of dreaming is all. No need to worry. I've lived like this for my entire life, one more night won't kill me.>Custom
>>26668142>Now that you mention it, I feel strangely light headed.
>>26668142>I need healing... Sexual healing...
> Now that you mention it, I feel strangely light headed. What's happening?
>>26668142>Perfectly fine. Why do you look so worried?
>>26668142>My name's not Itomi!
>>26668142>>Now that you mention it, I feel strangely light headed.
>>26668142Hug. Bury face in shoulder. Cry.
>>26668142>Now that you mention it, I feel strangely light headed.Honesty is the best policy and all that.
"Now that you mention it, I feel strangly light headed." images flood in. From the dream from before. The one that made me fear sleeping again.No, this doesn't feel like my typical dreams. It feels more like a telling. Something bad is going to happen tonight.Something terrible."Raid." I push myself up so I can talk straight to her face. "This dream, this terrible dream is a vision. Something is going to happen. Tonight. A fire... a fire is going to burn everything down the ground!" I scream. Raid draws back."Are you sure you're not disoriented?""I'm positive, I'm positive I'm not. Please, believe me.""Uh - this is pretty sudden... but I'll choose to believe you for now. So if something is going to happen, what would you want to do about it?">Let's runaway. Whatever is happening seems inevitable.>Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course.>Nothing. If it's unavoidable, why run?>Custom
>>26668358>Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course.
>>26668358>Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course.Gotta want to do it.
>>26668358Start the fire yourself.Why fight your fate?
>>26668358>Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course.(But doing >>26668396 is probably part of that.)
>>26668358>Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course.And so /tg/'s White Knight Complex is invoked.
>>26668358>Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course. Well, unless the costs of stopping it turn out to be higher than the fire itself. Irony would be bad.
"Stop it at all costs, no matter what, of course." I nod firmly."So tell me - where is this going to happen?""The tallest skyscraper in the city. If I had to put an estimate on it..." that vision just now had to be triggered by a recent event which is of course related to the dream itself. That means - "It's happening now!"Raid now looks at me, her mouth agape. "W-what? How do you know that?""Because the vision hit me again." I move up out of the bed to my feet."Wait, where are -""Come on. We have to warn others and get there as soon as possible.""Think about this carefully - who would believe a girl screaming IMMINENT DANGER, RUN?">You've got a point. Better idea. How about we run to neutralize the threat and try to mitigate any collateral damage?>It's better than doing nothing, isn't it?>What do you propose we do then?>Custom

"You've got a point. Better idea. HOw about we run to neutralize the thread and try ot mitigate any collateral damage?""Better and less complicated." without any further word in the conversation, Raid gets up. "Let's get going then, Hero." now she's calling me that? Some nickname."I don't think I can be any kind of hero.""Well you're about to save the day so you might as well be one. Grab your Grimoire." "As if I'd forget it." I run up, grab the white-silver tome and start out of the house. Raid follows behind me.The cold night signified the end of a hot Summer. The clear sky with a full Moon coupled with the shift of the weather makes me feel uneasy. The sky is pretty, yeah - but it strikes me as surreal. "Itonami, get your head on straight.""Right, sorry." I slap my face with both hands to keep awake and focused."If we're going to have to fight, you're going to have to keep alert.""I know already!" Raid and I eventually arrive at the main district downtown. The two of us look up to see the contents of my vision. A single girl standing on the edge of the building. I can see it by forcing magic into my eyes. Raid can see it just through her natural eyesight. It just goes to show that humans can't accomplish anything without magic.>Raid, can you get me up there? If you can, run! (1d100 against Dex)>I can call out to her. I'll yell as loud as I can.>The two of us need to get prepared for anything that may come.>Custom

"Looks like we're going up." Raid grabs me into yet another princess carry. She lowers herself to the ground, angles her legs and looks up. My friend leaps high up into the air. She lands on a window ledge. After getting her footing, she just continues to jump up.She finds a ledge, jumps. Finds another ledge, keeps on jumping. As we ascend, I can hear people below gasping in awe. Some are screaming due to confusion. "Hey!" I shout to the girl above while taking care not to look down."Free me. Please, free me." is all she says to me. "Please." a smile on her face.Wait, that cold voice in my dreams.Was she communicating... with me?"Free me." she says that again as she falls from the top of the building.What the hell is she thinking!?>Raid, catch her.

You get 3 each Episode/Session. What they can do is add +20 to your base statistic when you're up against a challenge, they can allow you to reroll and they can basically 'heal' you if you have suffered a Strike Point. Use them sparingly if you think you're going to be in a difficult situation in an Episode. That's all I have to say about them.

Well this was a stupid way for the story to die.
"Raid, catch her. Now!" Raid looks straight up at the descending girl. What does she want to do? Kill herself? Life is bad but no matter what, I don't think offing yourself is the right answer. Raid has to save her. "I can't hold the two of you at once." she looks at me."Don't worry, just set me down." "Tch." she stops leaping and places me down on a column nearby. It's large enough for me to stand, maybe even sit on. "Stay here." afterward Raid plunges straight down the side of the building. Her legs are moving in a blur. Her speed is absolutely incredible. She leaps in a clean arc to catch the falling girl. Raid's arms pull her into a carry."...So you won't free me?" I hear the words even though I'm not near her.Maybe I can try speaking through telepathy.>Why do you want to kill yourself? What's so bad that you have to do that?>Were you... planning on destroying this town in a fire?>Raid, what's going on down there!>Custom

"What happens if we free you?" "That means I won't have to dream anymore. I won't have to..." her voice becomes muffled. "Dream." she becomes monotone.Suddenly a pulse. It's like a heartbeat. Badump.Badump.I feel it. It's coming from the wall, from the building. It's the same as my Akashic Grimoire. There can't be another text with this much power, can there?It continues to beat. Sweat forms on my brow.Then I realize it... and it's too late.The girl becomes shrouded in a red light.>Let go! Now!>Leap hold. Subdue her somehow. >I'm going to subdue the pulse...

"Raid, get away!" I stand up from the column that supports me. The pulse gets stronger and stronger with each passing second. I'm going to have to put everything I have into this. All of my strength. "Huff." I turn around and leap backwards off the building. I feel my hair extending down my back, transforming into a pure white. A blue magical circle stops me from descending to the crowd below. "Sorry for the light show but it's necessary...!" I feel an invisible force pushing against the palms of my hands. I do my best to push back. A red magical circle appears on the side of the building. It continues to grow at a rapid pace. Brilliant wings of blue ether blast out of my back. I close my palms. The magic energy starts to fluctuate from the book into me. "GGhkk." a spark of electricity hits my hands. I wince in pain but I have to keep this up.Wait, no. It isn't enough."What-?"I hear a cricket. No, what sounds like thousands of crickets chirping in unison. A black silhouette appears inside the center of the red circle. It begins to stretch through the side of the building. The crickets chirping becomes more apparent the more itme passes.I continue to struggle but it's no good. I'm going to have to do something else.+2 Degree of Failure>I'll try to force it again!

I reach into my reserves to pull out everything I've got. I have to close this magic circle no matter what. The same river from before when I woke up from my dream. The river of gold floods from my body to my finger tips. The beast behind circle continues to chirp. It's moving closer and close. "I don't think SO!" that's my last sprint.The hole closes on the monster's head. It lets out a loud screech but that's not all. It breaks down the all to reveal its true form.I know I managed to weaken the monster before it could come out for battle. I take in a heavy breath to steady myself. "Itonami!" immediately Raid leaps up from the ground to grasp me out of the sky."▄▄▄▄▄▄███████!" the unintelligible screeching from the monster causes me to clamp my hands over my ears. "W-what is that thing?""A very large dragon." Raid speaks to me as she takes everything in stride."Huff, where is that girl at?" I ask the question that comes to mind."She vanished... completely."I look at Raid. She casts a downward glance. "I don't think she matters right now, Itonami. She isn't dead, I know that much. What I do know is that red light and that red summoning circle reacted to one another. THAT girl summoned that thing.">Alright, I understand. Raid, go beat it down.

"Alright, I understand. Now Raid... go beat it down!" I point at the large dragon as it rips itself out of the side of the building. "Got it. Stay back, Itonami." Raid runs as fast as she can down the road and through the panicking crowd. A crystalline sword appears in Raid's hand as she maintains her amazing running speed. The large monster opens its mouth, releasing a hot flame upon the road below him. "HAH!" Raid swings her sword causing a violent wind to snuff the flames out before they can endanger anyones lives. "Alright, you just moved - my TURN!" with a blur Raid leaps up, swinging her sword to cleave into the dragon's 'breasts'. The blade rips across its flesh but it seems as though the damage it did was minimal. "Cheeky one, aren't you?" the monster once again bellows fire but Raid wails out the sword, smelting it out a second time. "That monster..." I remember seeing it. I know I've seen it. "In my dreams, I know I've seen it." Where is it from? What is that thing? I know it's name though. Kagutsuchi.>Raid needs to continue her attack on the beast.

>>26671564Voting for this.
>>26671564Sick roll bro, I thinkThat should be 50 after calculation I think, so THIS
>>26671605You're correct.If the roll is higher than your Stat, that's bad.If it's lower, HELL YEAH.I'll be explaining the system I'm using after the thread is over in a few posts. I'll also answer any questions you all may have.
The dragon breaths a large plume of fire. Because there is no one around, Raid doesn't have to be on the defensive. She runs as fast as her legs take her under the dragon. This time Kagutsuchi doesn't fire just one plume of fire. It lets out a 'beam' of light in an attempt to incinerate Raid."What do you take me for?" she quickly runs a half-circle around the large, floating enemy. She leaps up onto its back to swing her crystaline sword down. The sword punctures a wound near the back where the 'wings' meet.It lets out a roar in pain. It opens its 'wings' and thrusts itself into the air. "Gghhh, you're a tenacious one, I'll give you that much." Raid pulls the sword out while she holds herself on top of the monster.>Raid can deal a finishing blow for her to end it. (60+10 Vs. 1d100)>I think Raid should leap off the monster and wait for it to return before attacking again.>Custom

"Got ya now- GAH!" the thruster wings continue to blast the dragon further into the air. Raid can hardly hold on to its back now due to the sheer amount of gravity pushing on her. "D-dammit!" her grip on Kagutsuchi finally fails her. "S-shit." as she descends she grasps onto its tail. "Like... hell I'm letting you torch this city." her strength returns."████████!" it screeches in protect as Raid starts to claw her way up to its body with its tail. It slashes left and right but Raid doesn't move. "█████--!" with one violent lunge forward with the tail, the summoned beast tosses Raid into the air. A large pillar of light exits the dragon's maw. "Not on your life." she stares the burning white with a smile on her face. "HAH!" the Beastkin swings her sword down to intercept the light. The light digs into the blade but bounces off into the sky without hitting the intended target. "Go to..." a magic circle appears at Raid's fight. She pushes herself off the circle to plunder down toward Kagutsuchi's open maw. "HELL!" An arc carves itself into the night sky. The roar turns into a quiet chirp. The chirp turns to silence. The dragon's multiple green eyes close. The white dragon falls to the ground in two halves before completely vanishing in a fine green dust.I stand there on the ground, watching the display with a smile on my face.>Good job, Raid! You were incredible!>I should go check the scene where the dragon fell.>Where did that girl fall to? Or rather, where did she disappear too?>Custom
>>26672083>I should go check the scene where the dragon->Wait.>Oh shit, what happened to all the civilians watching?
The dragon fell over there near the intersection just before the skyscraper. Wait a second, what happened to all the civilians watching? I turn my head to observe the surroundings. There are a few people lying here and there but they don't appear injured. "Raid!" flustered, I run to Raid who's finally landed on the ground. "Yeah..." she takes in a few deep breaths to quell her exhaustion. "I'm... fine." she takes a quick look around. "Seems everyone ran away but-" a red light takes away my vision.I clench my chest.That beating from before. "Agghh." I close my fist. I gasp for breath. "Hey... Hey, Master. Itonami, are you alright?" I feel hands on my body."You liar. You liar. You liar." the voice of that girl. What did I lie about?Right, she wanted me to release her. Release her from what? She never answered. The only thing she did do was summon that monster. Was endanger innocent people. "Aghhhhh!" I scream out loud to relieve the pain however I can.[1/2]
The pain intensifies ten fold. My body screams for mercy but receives none. The onslaught continues.My body weakens. The grimoire that I drew power starts to shake violently. "What the... he-"My vision dies out again. Instead of a red explosion, it is white. What I guess is blood blasts out of my mouth. Rather than a human, I've become something of a rag doll. I go completely numb.The red magic circle that the dragon had come out of comes alive again. This time instead of summoning - it's doing the inverse. I feel my body float up into the air. Raid yells something I can't make out. She grasps my hand and that's where I lose consciousness.To Be ContinuedWhat did you think of the first thread? Of course, it's just the Prologue as the title says. The REAL quest doesn't start til Episode 2. So thoughts, opinions?
>>26672351I'll repeat my questions from >>26671461if just for the sake of curiosityI followed half way, but I was quite sleepy when I joined. I think your writing is fine, quality and speed, but I think the lack of players kinda slowed it down towards the end. Roll system was a bit funky at first, but you fixed it as a roll-under possibility system, which helped. I'd follow, but the time this is posted might stop me.
>>26672503Am I using rolls now? Yes. What made me change from the old style in Magia? Well Magia was a CYOA and not much of a quest. I didn't dabble into rolls until Vapor Tale, and that wasn't system based like this quest is. And for future reference, the system I'm using is called the Simple Solo System which can be found here http://pdfcast.org/pdf/simple-solo-system Now second question regarding Anonkun. I'm actually using both /tg/ and Anonkun with Fantastic Phantasm http://anonkun.com/live/Fantastic-Phantasm/-J18y48vLTHyintuyUcn See here. Essentially if 4chan were to go down in the middle of a quest, I could hobble on over there to finish up the thread. I'm making use of it as a back-up and a tool in that case.Now regarding the time that TODAY'S quest started - this is abormal for me. If so, I'd like to start the quest earlier in the day but my sleep cycle is pretty skewed now because LOLSUMMER. Hope I answered all your questions.
>>26672623Ah thanks, I thought you had gone to sleep.Also, kudos for running this for 6+ hours. You gonna give an update on your twitter for this? I'm curious you didn't do that before. You have quite a following, which could have livened this quest a bit.
>>26672688Now I'm wondering why the hell I didn't do that to begin with. I guess it was just because spur of the moment.Also, you think 6+ hours is a big deal? BACK IN MY DAY I ran 3 Magia Revolutuion Episodes for 12+ hours on a SCHOOL NIGHT. I'm the definition of EDGE.
>>26672708Ah, I guess quests aren't what they used to be nowadays. I'm guessing you archived this on sup/tg/? Btw, what do we call this quest?
>>26672729Uhhh... Fantastic Phantasm isn't exactly descriptive of it. A Crossover Magical Girl Quest or a Cross Magical Girl Quest? Either one, I guess.
>>26672739Its up to you in the end. Just wondering so I can find it with the tag on sup/tg/. That is, if you even use it. If not, I'll find it on foolz anyway, but its less organized.
Holy fuck we're really useless for a keeper of FANTASTIC. COSMIC. POWER. Our Friendly Fuzzy Familiar™ seems to pull most of the weight.>>26672708Magica pls . Pls calm down.
>>26672806Oh fuck its you!So whats the odds on this quest being shit on for being slightly animu? Magia did say it was a crossover quest, so I feel a storm brewing...
>>26672835No matter the contents of a quest, quests themselves will continue to be hated. Also I'm going try and handle the 'crossover' part as something SRW is known for and that's Canonwelding. I hope it works out.
>>26672835'Slightly'? Aside from that, don't you mean how beloved? Anything that expresses an inch of originality in /tg/ drowns and dies. Animoo goes straight to the 20s. Don't worry. They'll love this shit.
>>26672871Then I should put Aether Cross on the back burner!
>>26672862>>26672862> No matter the contents of a quest, quests themselves will continue to be hated. Wise, that one.
>>26672871I dunno man, I'm probably delirious right now. I just pray it doesn't become a meta quest.>>26672862Words of wisdom. I just wish you luck then, and maybe I might see you mentioned in the QTG, for better or worse.
>>26672901You most likely will after a few threads of FP. ALSO next thread will probably be tomorrow afternoon, EARLIEST at 4, maybe 5.
>>26672880Yet ANOTHER project? Do you plan to run both in tandem?
>>26672976>Yet ANOTHER project?I have 3 going on right now, including Fantastic Phantasm. I'm finishing up Fate/another world next week since there's only a couple episodes left.After that I'm diverting my attention to Magia Requiem;End of the Journey on Anonkun on Thursdays at 7 PM. Friday and (maybe) Saturday are reserved for Fantastic Phantasm.The miracle of scheduling.
>>26673012>3 I didn't realize I was dealing with Ultra questfag. Fuck, you probably get more shit done than most questfags here.
>>26673012You could probably rival Cosgrove in terms of output if you keep that up.
>>26673091I don't know who Cosgrove is. Maybe I've been away from /tg/ for too long.>>26673045I've completed every Magia (Revolution, Sketch, Covenant, Rebuild, Resonance. Had to reboot Requiem because of almost a year of hiatus. The cause of that was I WAS TIRED OF WRITING MAGIA and it lost the spark), SHQ Part 1 added to that too, I guess? Add Fate/another world to that and I have a pretty decent number of quests under the belt. That plus 2 or so years at it. I'm prone to NOT doing shit like other QMs but I literally can't live without writing something.I don't feel right if I don't.
>>26672901I hope it won't turn into swishy swag Butler harem quest or one of Strike Witches Quest's many ugly children. How OP handles the crossover aspect remains to be seen, especially with a (presumably? ) male main character.
>>2667330099% sure the main character is a girl. It'd be weird as hell for it to be a guy in a giant magical girl crossover.
>>26673375>>26673300Itonami is a girl.
>>26673405>>26673375Alright, I see.
>>26673405>>26673375inb4 lesbonics everywhere.
>>26673440Itonami is actually straight.
>>26673440I ask of you: Would you be supportive or opposed to the MC practicing Advanced Lesbonics©?Personally I wouldn't much mind either way, truth be told.
>>26673505Like that will deter anyone.
>>26673505> straight magical girlHERESY.Just kidding let's roll with it. See you around.
