Last Time: Faefnir, and Alice part ways, with the ma- magical little Noah delivering goodies to Morgan, and a special little treat to one Pity of the Noah!The family shares a tearful reunion with the reborn Madeleine, and set off once more in their wagon with armbrust at the reigns.. Destination, Scotland!After running some tests on the unconscious gypsy, Faefnir devised a few likely experiments to perform upon humans in the near future...And so:First, Faefnir's stats and abilities!>http://pastebin.com/rHJuHW12His lovely family! ~>http://pastebin.com/w7sdhcqRAnd his wondrous tale so far! <3>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20QuestWelcome to Akuma Quest, Gentlemen. We meet again! I also apologize for being late, had some things to take care of.. unexpected things..
You mull over this development in your own mind.. Even lacking Morgan's analytical mind.. You are a machine as you have so recently reminded yourself.. You go over the possibilities from what you know...The curse is based upon mana at it's very core. It is similar to a talisman in that it is fed and then releases mana. The curse involves a spellwork that draws in mana.."What else.. What else draws in mana.. What.. manipulates it.." you think aloud, cruelly grinding your heel into his hand, forcing splinters into it from where he gouged the wood.Madeleine puts her arms around you as you're deep in thought, and with her contact, everything becomes so much easier...You relax into her arms and close your eyes,"Dark matter interferes with mana.. It's unlike a talisman. He's been infused with dark matter.. cut by a level 0.. It was in the story he had told.."Madeleine pulls you a bit tighter, Schwere doesn't react at all to your further musings, absorbing herself fully int that blasted book.Your intuition has yielded..> Inscribe a second curse with Blood-oil.> Infuse dark matter from your own body into a wound.> Pry Schwere away from that book and have her scrawl a talisman upon his flesh..> Leave it alone for now...
You run tests and mana diagnostics with your process of baking bread... You notice a sharp decline in your process of actually turning something to ash.. and a further decline as you actually create said bread. before levels return to a stable medium.You give the bouncer bread to Wendel and Kralle to share."Based on that, it's infused with not only Dark matter.. but Mana.." You check on your system memory, along with your readings.. that all checks out."Madeleine, I think that we could possibly replicate this with an infusion of dark matter and blood oil.. Though we'd need to experiment o a few other humans.. Perhaps we need guinea pigs?"She leans looks down at Fonso, an appraising stare," That could possibkly work, we're not going to try it on him? He's the closest human after all.You shake your head slowly as Wendel and Kralle gnash upon your bread," No, we need him alive for now. he's useless if he dies. And we'll be doing things that really should kill him."Madeleine peers now at Schwere, as Schwere seems to be scrutinizing even the first page of that tome eagerly."Schwere dear, could you possibly assist us?" Madeleine purrs out, that tart-tone that you know so well..Yet Schwere only shakes her head," Not now, like Faefnir said, we need test subjects. If the Controlled factor dies, then we lose our method for measuring success and failure. Shush now, I'm busy. I'm running five different translators and just barely getting the words out of this thing... Thank the devil that we have built in Rosetta stone programs, however even that only goes so far."You look over your shoulder at Maddie.. Within a day, you got a good lead at how to fix someone up like Fonso.. Perhaps you should be the ability of the Noah?Smirking at that, you notice that Maddie wears a similar expression as she releases you and the two of you stride over to pester Schwere.Because hey, more brainpower, right?
Time for mechanical monster yanderes: CLANG edition. CLANG CLANG CLANGStop, that's my exhaust!CLANG CLANG CLANG
>>26666853A question, Duke. Could we still make stuff like Kralle's butterfly with our Creation Engine? I assumed that was a normal ability of ours since our oven's true capabilities were still locked away.
>>26666853I hope it wasn't anything serious, Duke.
>>26666923Claire and Jacob had a hand in that. With Maddie's help, it could be made again..
>>26666942Rather so, though not at the expense of my own person.. The party involved has laughed it off though, and I blame them for it anyway so I'm perfectly in the mood for writing!
My body is ready for the lewd result of the silly crit...
>>26666948Ah, so we're limited to magical baked goods for now?
Wild mass guessing time.We learned that there was no level 3 akuma left on Earth. Where could they be? My guess is Wonderland. I am starting to think our level 4 form is going to be a regular looking Noah at this rate. Not that I would mind.Also... CLANG CLANG CLANG CLANG.
>>26667024Unless we're working with Maddie I believe we are.On that note we should experiment more with making bread. Given that our baking can do all sorts of things maybe we could make one that will make the cursing process to give people abilities like Fonso's as simple as feeding someone a pastry.
>>26667076The effect would have to be temporary, to balance it out.A cool idea, though. It would help cement one of our themes (as a plague-bringer/natural disaster).
>>26667076So a magical baked good that would curse whoever eats it? It doesn't really feel dramatic enough for a good curse. A good cursing requires a very dramatic and tense setting. >>26667129Temporary could work through,Say Dearly dweedly duke, have you thought about some good curse ideas?
Between you, Maddie, and Schwere.. you manage to roughly translate the first Several lines of the leather-bound book..And it's still spotty by the next nightfall."That's.. ten words.." Schwere mumbles, her head frazzled from the long translation time.."And there's still holes in the lot of this.. Symbols that none of us understand.." You growl out with your own fatigue, head running hot."This is going to take a while.. isn't it?" Maddie grumbles, having grown rather bored with this extensive read.The bits translated...>̤S̥̼͎OU͎̼͓͍L̺̪ ̼͖̞S̘̠̬̜H̰͕̗̻ͅE̦A̺̞̺̹̝̹R̥̺̯̬̤̰͔I͎N̤̟G͈͔ͅ ̤̳̙Pg̠̯̻̲͈̜̣ ̘̱̬̳0̟͍͔͉͚̺͖1̺̼3̦͕͔̮̞̯̥>̖̥̪̫ ̳̩SACR̜̬̥̜̲͖I͙̩͎̻͉F̖̪̖I͖̥C͈̙̭̜̭̰̙E̘̞ ̗A̼̰̞ͅN̬͓̼͖D̙͔͇ ̼̰̻̩ͅB͕͖L̩͚̮͕ͅͅO̲͍̬͖͇O̺̗̩D̘͎̜͚̝͍̜ P̼̙g̪͉̯̮̣ ͕̪͎̻͖̭͙0͙̜2̮1͔̥͈̻̱>̬̩̙̙̭̙̦ ̪̦̼̭TH̯̹̮̥̗̱̜E͖͓̣̫ ̪O̺̲̦̠̮̭̼T̝̠̪̠H̙E͉̟͙͈̦R̠͈͕͚̱̥ ̲S͎̥̲̼̲͓̟I͚̮͈ͅD͉͖̰̟E P̫̘̺g͕ ̱͔̲0̩̯̙̼̺̠3̘3̠̞̞̺͕̮͖̣> ̞B̥̬I̲͔̖N̟D̙̖̮̼IN͙͉̳͇̱͚̰G̖̰̦̻͕ ̝̘O̰̳̯F͔͙ ͉͓͚͉M̰̣̼̙̟̭O̪̟̲͕̹̣R̰̬̞̠͔̣T̲̱͉A̺̩̥̠̗L̫̪̜̫͈̞̺Ḭ̦T̥̣̜Y͎̮ ̺̯͚̘̭͕P͕̖̝̥͎ͅg̪͔̜̱ ̩0̺7̠̰̭͎̱̜̞0̜̖̣̮̥The words seem to shift and run across the page, almost bleeding.. Thus being one of the biggest blocks in the translation...It'd actually be easier to have Schwere pick one of the topics and begin studying it...>The first one...>The second...>The third...>Forget the book, this thing is garbage.
>>26667188>The second...Sacrifice and Blood seems like an extremely useful topic.
>>26667188Lets start looking at "the other side". It may give us insights on the dark entity.
>>26667188Mr Trebek, I'll take "SACRIFICE AND BLOOD PG.021" for 500.
>>26667188Never skip chapters in a good book! Soul Shearing!
>>26667188the third. after all, I have a feeling we have friends on the other side...
>>26667188Yeah I'm thinking second since that is the one that will be most useful to us. It seems to deal with performing human sacrifice. The first appears to deal with soul theft and might be of mild use to us for improving processing power. The third appears to be dealing with the afterlife and how to avoid it and is sadly directed at human occultists. While we have a body and posses a soul our soul is sadly a fuel source instead of what it does for meatbags and therefore bindings to make it stay in our corpse and not progress onwards would only serve the purpose of annoying people like Allen.
>>26667337Whoops leftover from other thread this is me.
>>26667188We can't pick Binding of Mortality?In that case..[x]The first oneInitially, I was gonna pick the second. Soul Shearing's application could be used to make akuma, and I figured we don't need that as we're a Noah now, and the Duke probably won't wanna kill us. But then I thought, shee-it, we got Creation Engine, if we can make Akuma bodies and jam souls in there, we'd save the Duke SOOO much cab fare.
Rolled 68Hold on a sec, why didn't we have the choice for binding of mortality?I'd say we pick it if we can.
>>26667403My mistake, the text bled and I couldn't read it...>The first one... SOUL SHEARING>The second... SACRIFICE AND BLOOD>The third...THE OTHER SIDE>The Fourth... BINDING OF MORTALITY>Stop wasting time with this thing. This was achieved with a high roll. Aas it is, the Akuma do not have the resources to translate this quickly...
>>26667188Read the third. Let's bring our good friend out to this side.
>>26667457We did that already. It turned out to be a Bad Idea. Or I thought we did.
>>26667438Well that kinda changes things. Binding of mortality could be useful to deal with humans, including exorcists, in non lethal ways.Soul shearing is obviously about soul manipulation, which could come in handy.The other side... well we have friends on the other side.Of course, sacrifice and blood is obviously about increasing our power, which is always useful.My vote is still for the fourth.ALso, I wonder if the Doctor has realized who we were?
>>26667476The full extent of it has yet to breach.. this is still only... Scouting..
>>26667499Is there any hope for... time manipulation and dimensional travel?
>>26667513It'll take time. So long as Schwere keeps on with translation... She's bound to get better at it as well.. Hehe..
>>26667499Oh their god no.>>26667513That sounds like a bad road to go down. Mostly because the end result is always Hitler winning WW2.
>>26667564Does this mean she'll eventually start speaking in horrifying otherworldly tongues? Because that's neat.
>>26667624Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Schwere R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn>>26667597What could go wrong with time travel?
Sacrifice and Blood IIthe other side IISoul Shearing Ibinding of mortality ITied for Blood and The Other Side...>>26667624 She's going to get interesting if you leave her alone..
>>26667564Okay great so a few threads down the road we'll be asking Alice if she can get Schwere to stop talking gibberish that erodes the minds of all nearby.
>>26667646Interesting as in a good story or a volcano the spontaneously started spewing blood and gore?
>>26667646I transfer my vote for Soul Shearing into Sacrifice and Blood.
>>26667676But volcanic eruptions make for great stories. They give us plenty of new Akuma and resources for our bread. Admittedly we will probably be in our Madnir form for a while to prevent the heat from getting to Madileine but other than that we'd be fine. Admittedly the rest of the family would be somewhat worse off.
>>26667707Motion carried, the ruling is passed.Schwere will first read sacrifice and blood... The second most interesting choice..
>>26667707Oh hey. Wait a minute. I voted for Soul Shearing. So there should at least be 2 votes for it, or you're pretending to be me.
>>26667646Yeah. We've already character cleared Maddie. Maybe it's time to focus on the second woman in Faefnir's life.
>>26667754Apologies. the vote even listed in the count was counted as 1 before the tallying.. So add 1 to each vote.
>>26667769How many women do we need until we can all combine into super sentai robot?
>Remember this series from highschool>Remember pretty twisted and fun monster designs>Gee I wonder what crazy monster /tg/ came up with"It's like a knight and he makes like holes and stuff"
>>26667809I think you're in wrong thread or are reading one of the NPCs as the PC
"Blood and Sacrifice." You point to the shifting words upon the page and look at Schwere, who's been staring at the book madly, trying to analyze and reanalyze the words as they move, shifting language and script altogether."This is the one that I'd like you to study.." You tell her and she immediately opens up the book to the appropriate page," Right away.. I think you for the help, let me.. Ah, let me try to translate it alone for a while.. I think I've got an idea, of how to get this done a bit quicker..." Schwere withdraws from the two of you, closing the book with a finger stuck inside of it upon the selected page.. Kralle and Wendel look to Schwere and snicker," Hey, Faefnir, what's Schwerie doin with that book you three've been glaring at?!" Kralle gets up to her feet, walking around the fire that's been made along the snowy road-side, her butterfly shimmering with dark hues, almost invisible in the nightly air.Armbrust peers over as well as he pokes the fire, turning the kindling over to give more air to the flames.Madeleine stares at Schwere intently as Kralle struts up to her and makes a reach for the book, Schwere backing off quickly to keep it out of her reach," Ah, uh.. Hehe.. Kralle dear, please don't touch my nice book.. Your hands are usually claws you know.."Kralle frowns, " And Faefae's usually on fire, and Maddie's usually crushing humans until the bones snap.. You let THEM touch it."THe two begin to bicker lightly back and forth, elliciting some light laughter from Kama and Maddie. Hell, you even get a little chuckle yourself..Yet you need to make a decision...> Remove the book from Schwere's care.> Destroy the Book.> Leave it be, she has work to do.> (Other)
After this, we do the silly crit, I promise. I want to do this a bit faster, though as usual the votes seem to have a bit of back and forth here and there.. I like to give that some time to settle..
>>26667925Wait. Why would Faefnir, in character, make any one of those decisions? Isn't everything aside from leaving Schwere to her work tantamount to the "kill everything" option?
>>26667925Leave the book to Schwere.She is the only person competent enough to translate it. Also, I want to see what the book will do to her.
>>26667925[X] Leave it be, she has work to do.However ask Schwere to check in with us somewhat regularly and keep us updated on what she's learning from it. This means if things do start going weird or if she starts failing to check in with us we'll know pretty quickly.Tell Kralle that Schwere is working on something very important and to not distract her too much.
>>26667925>[x] Leave it be, she has work to do.Children shouldn't touch nightmarish artifacts of death. Also, because Kralle is the kind of person who would destroy the book because she thinks it's funny. Now that she's got that butterfly golem, I've started imagining Kralle as basically loli- Sena from Haganai.
>>26667925Leave it be. Kralle is just teasing
>>26668001We'll have to intervene if she starts going obsessed with the book (I mean, we're not going to let Morgan succumb to her thirst for knowledge completely, so why would we let Schwere?), but I agree on letting her study it alone for now. We'll just have to monitor her closely.>>26667925>>26668011This. Give Schwere a reason to constantly interact with the rest of the family so that she doesn't get completely absorbed into the book.
>>26667925Could Wendel assist her however? As our little brother and as an Akuma, he had a lot of magical potential and possibly some arcane knowledge.
>>26668043Oh, and supplemented to this- We could play with Kralle and Wendel for a bit before the silly-crit. We're not 100% stern, and this is family time.Family time that doesn't involve the Necronomicon. If there is such a thing.
>>26668067>>26667925Oh yes, this!Ask Schwere to take Wendel on as an apprentice. Gotta develop his potential as a mage!
>>26667925[X] Leave it be, she has work to do.I am very curious as to how this will develop.
>>26668067If Wendel is interested that's a good idea, don't force him to help her, he won't be useful if he's being forced into it and it'll just distract Schwere if that's the case.>>26668090I'm always in favor of playing with the kids, we don't want them to feel like we don't pay attention to them after all, we love them.
>>26668067Wendel needs more screentime anyway. It's always about his drunkard of a sister or psycho of a stepmom. It's never about Wendel.
>>26668281Wendel is the drunkard.And Kralle is turning into a bit of a psycho herself.
>>26668267Of course we love them. They are our parents stuck in our siblings body by dark magic we brought on them. Someone call Freud.>>26668308Oops my bad. Got them confused.Well, to be honest, all Akuma are naturally psychos, only some more than others.
just as a aside, when we get the time could we ask the noah inside us to give us a control over what akuma we free from the earls control. we seemed to be doing it passively before that that might not be such a good thing in the future.
>>26668387Given that the two Noah souls are in separate bodies now instead of both being inside of us separating an Akuma from Adam is probably going to be a lot harder and require both us and Maddie to work together on it.I could however be wrong.
Maddie lays a hand upon your shoulder, and looks into your eyes from the side, her voice soft, and breath upon your ear,"This is.. important in a way.. right?"You touch the hand on your shoulder and give her a slight smile as you bring more of her into your view.Beauty of a lamb that hides the fiercest devil of a lion.."Yes, we need to leave Schwere on this task.. However..""Wendel!" You call and the drunken boy's roused from his feigned stupor."Y-yes, Faefnir? What is it...?"You point at the boy, "You need a hobby besides sucking down spirits. You will assist Schwere with the translation of that text. "Schwere's eyes immediately go wide and pleading," B-but Faefnir, I wanted to read it myself.."You pause for a moment, collecting your thoughts, and then you look to the demon," Now, now Schwere.. Wendel needs to develop his talents, and you are easily the best teacher that we have available.." You put a hand to your brow and move some of your hair out of your face... Has it been growing? "Further, I would have you check with me every other day as to what progress you've made with the book, at your earliest convenience.. I must know what new resources become available after all."Schwere pouts, her emotions completely betraying her," B-but.. Faefnir.. I."You twirl one of your locks with a finger, idly," I believe I've made myself clear Schwere. I'm concerned for you first and foremost." You stop to look at her directly, giving her a gentle and disarming smile,"I'm sure that it won't impede your progress. If it does, speak to me about it, and we'll see what we can do.""H-hey.. Faefnir, Don't I get a say in this?!" Wendel cries out, holding his jug out, sparse amounts of alcohol sloshing around.You take one look at the jug, and then to the child," Same for you, I think this is quite clear. You will help Schwere.. After all, you'd stated interest in learning more magic.."
The boy looks thoughtful for a moment, takes another swig of his jug, seems to mull over the thought and then pours it out. "I'll do it.. Beats drinking this shitty swill."Kama giggles and clasps her hands together," Oh, lovely, lovely! Wendel's finally gotten something other to do than drink away our funds!" She brings her hand to her face to brush away a clear tear," I am so proud.. my little boy's growing up..."Wendel shakes, blushing and turning beet-red," I.. I... I.."Kralle falls backward and rolls her way over to wendel, ending with a handstand and blowing a raspberry at him from upside down," Wendel made Momma proud! Come on, Say something gallant! Or mystical! Or are ya a buffoon?""Shaddap!" Wendel makes a swing for Kralle, and she cartwheels away, giggling as her butterfly chases after her."Momma's boy, momma's boy!"You clear your throat with a mechanical scratch, "Kralle." She stops upon one hand, mid-wheel."Y-yes, Faefnir?""Leave the two of them alone.. Maddie and I will play with you."Madeleine gives you a kiss upon the cheek, and Kralle cheers, while Schwere resigns herself to mastering Wendel and the Leatherbound book...It's a good night for games, everyone's in a good mood..
NOW. For the silly crit... CLANG CLANG CLANG
>>26668487W-w-with Kralle?B-but she's only 13!GRINDING GEARS
>>26668479So. Are we going to refer to everyone with the original names we gave them when we're in private (Kama, Armbrust), then with the human names they gave themselves when we're in public (Klaire/Claire/Whichever, Dennis)?Since it seems kind of weird for Kama to go back to being called Kama when she made a bit of a deal of getting called Claire by Faefnir.
>>26668506Freud spins in his grave so badly he drills into hell.
>>26668487oh my how lovely<3
>>26668569This could actually be the identity of the dark being that empowers the devil's luck.
Oh, I also wanted to mention...The bonds that connect the two of you are friendship, sister-brother, child-parent, and Lover.. It's interesting that it's ended up this way.. Multiple forms of bonds.. Hell, you even shared a soul with her..>>26668546Yeah, so long as I keep the distinction. I think I've been good with it so far with private vs public modes.. The children and Schwere still need proper public names...
>>26668586Also, Duke, I'm a bit confused. Were we in the wagon and traveling towards Scotland in the last thread? Or are we still camped out in the bandit's clearing?
>>26668586Every bond possible must be made. Soon even the bond of killer and victim will be achieved.
>>26668619well, technically making her an akuma was killing her
>>26668619Wait. We already have that bond.
>>26668619Technically that's already a thing.>>26668610Armbrust got the wagon going again, the horses need to rest at night, so they set up little camps. Helps to have a convincing cover as humans at that... You could always opt to have the family pull the wagon.. or do it yourself...
>>26668640>>26668644That was technically not Madeleine, but another human.
>>26668672No, only a peasant would pull his own wagon, and we can't allow that.
>>26668689>>26668672We're not in a hurry right now, but if needed, we'll definitely do it.Gotta maintain cover. We don't want to accidentally show some random traveler our true forms.
>>26668712Agreed.If it comes down to it, we could probably just carry the non-fliers, and just fly to where we need to get. Maybe. I'm not quite sure who can fly and who can't, but wagons and possessions aren't really all that important. Outside of Fonso and the Necronomicon, we can just leave it behind and steal more shit if we must.
>>26668799Us, Schwere, and Kralle can fly. Kralle probably can't carry anyone else, and we're not as big as we used to be.
I am off to sleep for now but will happily analyze remains of this thread come morning.
>>26668799It should be noted that Schwere can easily levitate the wagon and horses.
The next morning, you're awoken by Kralle shaking you back and forth, whispering her words a mile a minute,"Comeon-comeon-comeon...""Wake up Faefnir, it's time to play!" She squeezes your cheeks apart,forcing you into a catfish-like expression."Whot ehn dhe debil ah you dohing Kall?" You groan out from your pulled lips.The crazy girl just smiles at you," Playing, it's playtime! It's playtime right? Let's wake up Maddie next!"You swat away one of Kralle's hands, and a different hand replaces it, pulling on the cheek roughly, and maybe twice as far as Kralle did."Woht, Woo?" You swivel you ocular up and see a large bosom blocking your vision, only to come down to block your sight entirely."Guess, whoooo?" The bosom croons in the early morning.After a pause of about 2 seconds before guessing."Mahbelleine?"The hands leave and the bosom comes down in full as hands wrap around your head, suffocating you.After a few moments of flailing, you finally remember that you don't actually NEED to breath.Kralle giggles at you as you're finally released from Madeleine's valleys, huffing and puffing with the false need. "You're all trying to kill me, trying to murder me, I swear.""Schwere!" calls Kralle, and she waves over past you.Finally up, you look over in the direction and you see Schwere asleep, snoring into the book.. the book that she had been so keen on Kralle not touching.."Is.. is she drooling?" You ask."I think she is.." Maddie smiles, with an almost sinister look."Oh, oh, we're being sneaky now, right? She's still asleep, what should we do?" Kralle whispers to the two of you, and a smile comes across your face as you run your fingers through your hair, pushing your bangs back," My dears, I believe we have a game to play...
________________________________*Schwere*The world spinning, a chorus of cries and then silence as the words began to pour into my head, my very being, my very soul.. Words beyond words, that conveyed knowkedge, forbidden and beyond.. I kept my eyes open for as long as I was able.. Yet the sweet whispers of slumber finally seeped in and covered the screams, the crying...Something moves... My nose itches? Why does that itch? It's never itched before.. I don't know why it would itch...Slowly opening my eyes, I see nothing but color, translucent and ever shifting. A wonderful display.. yet my nose still itches...I reach my nose up to scratch,and find that my arms won't move... Why won't my arms moveFeet? Kick those feet. I hit something? And now I can't move them either.Not even a whisper from those cries? What's that book doing? Ah.. I think.. I think I'll go back to sleep..."WAKE UP!"__________________________Schwere jumps up like a bat out of hell while under Maddie's and your strength. Kralle's butterfly finally flits away from Schwere's nose.You cluck your tongue a few times," Shame on you Schwere, falling asleep while studying... That's a bad student, worse teacher.. this calls for punishment."You remove One of Schwere's boots as she breathes heavily," Fae-faefnir.. No.. No... Please don't Faefnir...""Don't say that I wasn't ever merciful.. I've been so kind after all...""No.. Whatever you're about to do..""Maddie, something light, wispy.. a feather. Can you picture it?""No, No, Faefnir... Please don't..!"You now hold the ideal feather between your fingers, rolling it gently...," Schwere, Ped nerve endings- On. Sensitivity 100%."
"Oh devil no, Faefnir, I'm so sorry!""It is.. too late..."You bring the feather to Schwere's exposed foot and engage in the most brutal forced tickle that an akuma will ever know. The rest of the family slowly awoke to the panicked laughter and "no's" of Schwere along with the maniacal laughter from you, Maddie, and Kralle.It's fun to be a kid sometimes, isn't it?
Oh lord. This cute family moment is the lewdest thing I've ever seen.I no longer regret almost killing Maddie with my dice rolling, because it led to this.
>>26669248indeed... it so cute it's almost indecent.
>>26669248We were already assured Maddie's survival with the first crit. You just gave it the possibility of becoming silly.You did, however, almost kill the mood.
>>26669313indeed. and killing the mood is a most heinous crime indeed.
>>26669331But what if they kill it then summon it back as an akuma?
>>26669342The Akuma wouldn't be in the mood.
After Schwere finally catches her breath, from the brutal tickle frenzy, she passes out once again, overstimulated from the relentless assault.Kralle rolls over on her back, laughing," Oh. oh, that's great! I think.. I think Schwere needed something like that, right?" She smiles, wiping away a few black tears. Maddie laughs with an arm over your shoulder," Ohhh yes.. She really needed to lose some of that tension, just let it all out."You chuckle yourself," She was like puddy in our hands.. Though..." You run the tip of your tongue over your upper lip," I think I got some relief from that myself..."Madeleine gives you a little jab in the shoulder," Oh, and having me isn't a relief?"You give her an eye with a coy grin," I have no idea what you're talking about, you haven't relieved me of anything.."You feel her hands touch your shoulder and turn you to face her, a smirk over her lips," Let me begin by relieving you of a little something.."As she leans in, you close your eyes and begin to lean in yourself for this human custom.Your lips touch something.. soft.. and there's hair?.. what.. You open your eyes and istead of seeing Maddie, you see Kralle's cheek, her head inbetween you and Maddie."TOO LEWD! NO KISSING!""Wh-wha?" You start, yet the embrace that you had with Maddie breaks, and it's a triangle between you, Maddie, and.. Kralle.The wagon begins to move and a smelly gypsy groans.Kralle places her hands upon her lap for a slap and then extends them forward," The next game.. Is pattycake!">roll for pattycake. 1d100. Roll for it right now.

Hrmmm... Within the first three, your pattycake rating isn't higher than 58.. If you can tell me the words to the game, I'll raise that by 20! Though it needs to be within 5 minutes of this post...

>>26669886Fuck! I misremembered. That's the 1765 version from Mother Goose after looking it up. God damn memory.The oldest one is 1698 and goes "and pat a cake Bakers man, so I will master as I can, and prick it, and prick it, and prick it, and prick it, and prick it, and throw't into the Oven." Oh, and replace T with K, and Tommy with Kralle, because you're supposed to personalize it.

You bring a hand to meet hers gingerly, vaguely recalling this game in your soul.mem..Maddie does the same, one hand to Kralle, and the other to you.. For three way Pattycake."Alriiiight, then! It goes like this..."Kralle goes through the motions, a touch quickly though.. Slapping her hands upon her knees, bringing them up and forward to clap with yours, clapping , and then clapping together with Maddie.It takes you and Maddie a moment to get in the groove of it, however within enough time, you're all singing the song to the little game.."Patty Cake, Patty CakeBaker's ManThat I will MasterFast as I canPrick it and prick itAnd mark it with a KAnd throw it in the oven for Kralle and we!"The three of you go around in a circle with the words for some time, alternating the letter and who it's for, even so far as to include family members that are'nt taking part in the little game.Kralle simply seems delighted that you've gone out of your way to play with her, even despite the fact that it's a little kiddy game..If it makes her happy, you don't recall seeing her really smile this much, and hell.. even Maddie seems to be excited at playing with her.. She actually seems really happy about it... Or perhaps its a bit of Jacob slipping through?By the late afternoon, Kralle finally seems a bit bored, or rather tired with the game..."So Kralle, did we win?"The girl grumbles, rubbing at her oculars lazily," You.. you don't win at Pattycake you dummy..""You're just saying that-""Because you lost, right?" Maddie finishes for you, and your eyes snap open wide a moment as you realize what happened.
"Hey, Maddie.. Can you do that again?"She turns to you, her golden locks about her face with bedhead that was never corrected," What do you mean, Faefnir?""That thing, that you did just now.."She seems confused," I'm not sure what you're talking about.."You throw a palm to your forhead, growling out with a bit of frustation," Oh boy, it would've been nice if it were that simple..""If what were that simple?" She stares at you, slightly puzzled," Oh, do you mean-"Ending each other's sentences? Yeah, I do..."Synchronization rating has been brought up by 2/10.

>>26670195What have Edward and Andrea been up to while we've been doing this?
>>26670223Andrea's been a quiet little dove that's been watching you the entire time.Edward? Well.. Waking up to deal with this scene would've been too much work.
>>26670195Thanks for running!Last thread we remembered we have a bunch of cool machine powers like manameters and translators. Is there anything else we've got that might be useful? Like... a compass, or infrared vision or something?
>>26670268Yes, you have an internal compass that gives you a perfect sense of direction so long as strong magnetism doesn't interfere with it..Your Rosetta stone translator programs are set to translate all european languages. You'll require an upgrade for other ares of the world, however it should suffice for now.In all likelyhood there are more programs and equipment integrated into your being that you can use... There are plenty of features that Faefnir is still not consciously aware of...
>>26670381Ah. I guess we'll have to take some time to check that out then. Archived: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26666853/
If we get a high synchro rating... can we... gatai?
>>26670195Still here, Duke? I was wondering if you could explain Andrea's weapon in-depth. I'm having trouble visualizing it.
>>26671596If we couldn't, then that portmanteau I came up with (Madir) will go to waste.
>>26671611She opens and extends her jaw like a fish.
>>26674806It's the extending part I don't get. So she has this huge underbite, I guess?
>>26674897I suppose she would, wouldn't she? Though she's bound to evolve as it is with the rest of the family.
>>26674897I'm thinking something like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GjRSlnJ1rA4#t=29s
