>Proceed Quietly...

Stamina: 73%

The halls are dead silent, though a different kind from the Lavender spire. Each of your steps a touch too heavy ring throughout the gym, forcing you to tread carefully as the fur on your tail stands at end, your breath more visible than what's become the usual as your body's core temperature drops.

Warily, you think back to when Grumpy had been reading your thoughts. Could he hear you here? Could he even reply? What's his mother done to him, has she done to your friend?

You just want to see your friend.

(So, you would call him "friend.") A powerful voice reverbrates through your psyche, forcing you to clutch your head at the immense headache that sentence alone has given you.

Before you, a woman slips into existence amidst a particularly large empty room, faint sunlight streaming in from outside, red candles casting a dim glow upon the two of you.

You've seen her before, you recall as she slowly descends unto the ground, her hair slowly floating and wavering. Ranger-red garb, gold badge of the Saffron upon her collar, and long, lustrous royal purple hair that falls upon her shoulders.
Her expression though, it's an utterly monotone, repressed stare, as though she's looking through you, rather than at you.

"You trespass upon my gym as a non-esper. You call my offspring your friend. Would that have something to do with the afforementioned trespass?" Her voice reflects her expression, very little emotion other than the irritation of the fly that has wandered into her web.

>What do you say? What do you think?
>>
>>28353712
Whatever we think, I hope it's polite...
>>
>>28353712
Sabrina seems very clinical. If we knew what the word clinical was, we'd definitely think that.

Not judging. Just very matter of fact. As if she didn't care.

Simply confirm what she just said and ask if it was improper of us to do so?
>>
>>28353712
I am looking for Goldenrod, all evidence pointed toward this gym.

He disapeared from the Rocket Ranger dormitory 2 nights ago.

I am sorry if I entered uninvited, but there was no one at the entrance.

Lets think about seeing Goldie again.
>>
>>28353712
"He's my friend and a member of my team. For him to run off like this made me worry. Is he here?"
>>
>>28353712
The truth, I suppose. She's gonna pry it from our brain anyway

Our friend went missing, and we were worried. We tore ourselves out of recovery to come find him because he was missing. I think he's here.
>>
>>28353712
Yes- Have you seen him? He's been missing for days, and I'm very worried.
>>
>>28353712
"I came looking for goldenrod."

As a member of Team Rocket, don't we have authority to go where we please?

But yeah, confirm that's why we're here.

Maybe show her the spoon?
>>
>>28353782
Nooooooo no spoon.

We don't know if Goldie is hiding his transformation yet or not.
>>
>>28353712
Other people have said most of it, but perhaps we could work in a minor apology for entering unannounced. We attempted to use the doorbell, but the power seems to still be out.
>>
>>28353782
We are not members yet. We are trainees.
>>
>>28353712
We really just want to bring our friend home.
She is beautiful. And cold.
>>
>>28353800
Different anon here.

Trainees still are supposed to be allowed access to all gyms.

Even so, it seems a pretty bad idea to bring that up.
>>
>>28353712
"Well, Goldenrod has been missing for 2 days, and the trail he left behind leads here. If I could just take him with me, I'll be out of your hair as soon as I can."
>>
Think about Goldenrod's spoon story, and the hurt and pain in his heart. The loneliness. Perhaps the pity we have for her for not being able to understand her son.
>>
"W-well, I... I came here looking for Goldenrod," You stutter out through her repressive stare.

"He's been gone for a few days. And the trail for him led here."
You try to smile, to disarm her somewhat, yet her expression remains flat.

"Goldenrod. He is here. He came to train. I dismissed 90% of my class due to the power outage." She pauses, looking you over somewhat as you feel your mind being looked over, turned over at her leisure like an open book.

"Daughter of Lorelei, Cerulean." Her features contort into something of a scowl as she glowers upon you," A spoon led you here? How ridiculous." Her mask begins to break into an outright displeasure for you.

With a wave of her hand, the guiding spoon slips from your grasp and it moves into her grasp, as she examines it,"Charming," as she bends it, the scoop breaking off at the last second and the whole thing fades away, your proof and tracking of your friend now gone.

"You have found my child, and he is not ready to leave. I bid you to depart now." Her mask returns for a moment before turning up into a slight smile.
"Though it is interesting that it is you that would come here. You have another friend from here, yes?"

>[] Your move.
>>
>>28353961
"Miss Sabrina, with all due respect Goldenrod's training schedule is in the hands of Giovanni. He is a Junior Rocket, not a member of the Saffron Gym."
>>
>>28353961
"Yes, why do you ask? Also, w-would you mind if I spoke to Goldenrod for a few moments? I know he's training and everything, but he left without warning and..."

[Try not to quiver under her deathglare. Fail]
>>
>>28353961
>Goldenrod training there willing

my bullshit meter is off the charts right now.
>>
>>28353961
"i want to talk to my teammate before leaving."
>>
>>28353961
Ask to see Goldenrod.

If we need to give a reason, say that our supervisor, Kitty, was looking for him.

It wouldn't be lying.
>>
"He belongs with the Rockets now. Our teacher has demanded his presence and he is to come ready or not."
>>
>>28353961
Alexis, yes. inb4 she says "your OTHER friend" and gets all uppity.

I just wanted to see him before I go.
>>
>>28353961
We should ask her if we can leave now. We have what we came for.

We can come back later with the rockets backing us.
>>
>>28353961
>>28354049
Oh yes. This is nice. Very nice.

It might get Alexis into trouble?

Especially since we might be able to get her help later.

>>28354076
Sabrina watched us hug her and talk and stuff.

She already knows Alexis is our friend, this is just the motions of conversation.
>>
>>28354076
I don't understand your reasoning.

Sabrina knows we became friends with Alexis. We hugged it out with her.

Also, I doubt Sabrina actually knows of Bruise. Or, at least, pretends she doesn't know him.

>>
>>28353961
Y-yes, we have another friend here. She seemed nice.
>>
>>28353961
"Yes. Has Alexis been doing well?"
>>
I believe a prolonged stay in here is bad idea, considering Sabrina is a insanely strong fucking psychopath that could kill us with her mind.
>>
>>28354147
I highly doubt she'd outright murder us
She has a lot of power, but she's not an idiot. She'd get thrown out for that.
Or whatever this society does with child killers.
>>
>>28354183
Espers are wizards. The extent of her powers are unknown, she may be able to make all evidence disapear or even erase our memories.
>>
>>28353712
Ok, last thread, which one of you called blue worse than red?
>>
>>28354183

Exile sounds about right.

>>28354204
This is also pretty much true.
>>
>>28354204
I think Agatha would be able to keep Sabrina and other Espers in check.
>>
>>28354147
That's a little bit much, isn't it? She's a turbobitch, but she isn't going to make our head explode because we intruded in her magical realm.

>>28354207
...what?
>>
>>28354226
Now, I wonder who our father is.

Could it be...Red? Or worse, Blue?

I want to know who said this
>>
>>28354226
>That's a little bit much, isn't it? She's a turbobitch, but she isn't going to make our head explode because we intruded in her magical realm.
Her namesake from the anime and manga series have all been dangerous psychopath.

If we interfere with her son's training in any way, she may decide to give us a fate worse than death.

I just hope he's equatable to this dude right here.

Who's that Pokemon? It's Dewgong!

Why do you think we have such an affinity for ice? Our dad is a Dewgong.
>>
>>28354273
Grumpy's training isn't under her control any more.

He's a Junior Rocket, he has mandatory Rocket training in the morning so he can't stay here.
>>
>>28354273
Which is why we should act as if we're looking for him because our commanding officer, Kitty, is. ROCKET AUTHORITY!
>>
>>28354003
>>28354017
These. It's not Sabrina's call.
>>
>>28354303
>>28354303
if she refuses, get Giovanni, a speedo, a mix tape of some very sensual music, electrodes, and a tub of butter.
>>
>>28354305
>>28354303
Yeah, but right now we are the only one knowing where Grumpy is and we don't know what are Sabrina's intentions.

I would back away from this one and get someone with authority involved before we get mazed.
>>
>>28354326
Bruise is outside, if we don't come back he's probably going to get Kitty. It'll be alright.
>>
>>28354326
Stop worrying. If we get mindwiped, Bruise would notice. Just don't mention him and we'll still have a safety.
>>
>>28354331
Sabrina probably knows already and can probably catch him before he alerts Kitty, unless he is sprinting toward the Rocket HG right now.
>>
>>28354316
If we think about those things in rapid succession do we gain temporary immunity to psychics?
It'll be like recreating what people with evil type do with horrror but with lewd instead.

"Yes, why do you ask? Also, w-would you mind if I spoke to Goldenrod for a few moments? I know he's training and everything, but he left without warning and-"

"His training is private. He wishes to see no one right now." Her eyes flicker with a further ittitation as her stare upon you intensifies,"So it is, you made friends with Alexis."

She brings a finger up to your eye-level, crooking it back you feel your whole body pulled forward against your will, floating over the floor, and stopping just before Sabrina as she stares down at you, puddy in her fingers," Curious that you would prefer to see one as useless as my offspring, why not come here to see Alexis? Why do you care so much for him? Do you have the faintest idea what Alexis has been through since she lost to you?"

"Golden.. Goldenrod's a Junior Rocket, we have training...." Your words peep out, yet Sabrina casually putting a finger to her lips forcibly silences you with a sharp pressure upon your throat, cutting off your air.

"My offspring, untalented and worthless is a Junior Rocket, and yet he comes to me for training after he finally learns how to do more than teleport. You should know how happy he was when I praised him, little fish."

Sabrina's lips curl into a smile of one thing- sadism.
"How about this, you can see Goldenrod, and spare Alexis further intensive training..."

You try to respond, yet your voice won't make it out.

"All you need to do is face off against Alexis in a duel to the knockout. Here and now. I'll be satisfied with that, and Goldenrod should be able to pause after such."

You feel the pressure from your throat leave, and suddenly you can breath again...

Yeah gonna say duelling is a bad idea, we just survived the operation and aren't even recovered
But Grumpy is our friend and seeing Alexis again would be nice so go for it

We need to figure out how to regulate our cold again as well. Chilly hugs are bad hugs we want nice warm fluffy hugs
>>
>>28354372
Refuse.
Our grafts haven't healed yet, and if Sabrina needs her students to fight an unhealed just grafted person to win, perhaps that should tell her something.

Let's not be suicidal here, let's go get a big person and tell on her.

Is this what Espers are made of? Does beating someone fresh from surgery count as honour among you? Paaatheeetiiiic.

If she still wants to do it, insist that the Rockets be informed.
>>
>>28354372
>>[] Refuse.
Not that I don't want to, but we are freshly out of a life changing surgery in which many of our organs were changed. It would be dangerous and irresponsible for us to take on her offer.
>>
>>28354372

As she can see, we're pretty injured.

But we WOULD like to see Alexis while we're here, I'd say.

Let's not test her temper, guys.
>>
>>28354372

"I just got out of major surgery. I'm probably shouldn't even be walking around right now. Fighting Alexis would be pointless if I'm not at 100%."

>>
>>28354372
>[] Accept.
we may have just come out of surgery and we are not yet at 100% but this bitch needs her shit kicked in and then hugged until she becomes a better human being.

also we get to see Alexis again so yay possible future hugs.
>>
>>28354372
>Accept

Sure, we are not at 100% thanks to just getting out of surgery, but if we don't Aleis and Grump will have to continue "training".

Or we could call her out.
>>
>>28354420
Fighting is weak against Psychics. And we don't want to put any pressure on him. Best we kept to talking.

>>28354422
We're not kicking Sabrina's ass, though.

She wants us to fight Alexis, our friend. Who Sabrina has apparently been working really hard.

We should go see her.
>>
>>28354372
[X] Call her out.

"You hold one Junior Rocket member here against his will, and intend on forcing someone who has just gotten out of surgery and whose skin is currently stitched on into a fight against one of your star students.

Yeah no. This is fucked. We just got out of surgery and are requiring rolls to just walk around.

Holy shit this is fucked.

>[x] Call her out.
"Alexis beating me unconscious now would prove what exactly? That you're just pointlessly cruel? You don't even do this because its what needs to be done to protect humanity, you just enjoy making people suffer."

eh even if its just fighting Alexis its a psychological victory over Sabrina
>>
>>28354433
I'm sure she can hand out punishments as she see fits.

She's still a superior, anon.

>>28354437
>>28354428
You guys are projecting too much. We're roleplaying as Cerulean. She's not a platform for you guys to voice your grievances against Sabrina.
>>
>>28354433
I just imagine Cerulean has severe Schizophrenia and that the words you just typed came out in the voice of a large black man
>>
>>28354372
[X] Aceept, but call her out as well.

Time to test out how our new mods work even if we are kinda straight out of the hospital, but if this "training" is as bad as it sounds Alexis might not be in just as bad shape.
>>
>>28354441
The thing is.

You're not considering what will happen to Alexis.

She is our friend.

And we do not want to make things any harder for her. Either by forcing her to see beating us as the only way out of whatever she's suffering. Or by making us the object of her anger.

Think these things true. Sabrina wins any way you cut it. We lose, she gets to pride herself on being the best. We win, she can continue to mentally mold Alexia to hate us and work her even harder.
>>
>>28354449
And we may be able to spend xp and get Crunch. Dark moves fuck up psychics.
>>
>>28354372
Are we still covered in bandaged? This should be good. I wonder what the look on Alexis' face will be like.
>>[x] Accept.
We can just walk into the ring and ask her to make it fast.
>>
>>28354372
[X] Accept.

We are a Rocket and even at half or less strength straight out of surgery we will prevail.
>>
>>28354449
>>28354455
Guys, consider the ramifications of your actions. Bad things will happen with Alexis if we accept.

Don't rise to the bait. Keep your cool.
>>
>>28354372
channel the emotional powers of being offended.

[x] call her out.
insist on the authority of the rockets, and call her out on trying to have someone obviously fresh from surgery duel. It's not like the match will be fair for either side.

>>
>>28354454
Sabrina pissed that we actually made friends with Espers, especially her son. She's gonna do whatever she can do to isolate Alexis and Golden from us. Fighting Alexis here and now would be playing into her hands.

We know where Goldie is that is enough. Regroup, and come back with Rocket Reinforcements.
>>
You lot do realize that our skin is held by stitches and we can barely walk, right? While that wouldn't be a problem if we were Wolverine, we..sort of aren't. Not to mention dueling here? With no supervisor bar her? We might meet an "accident".

Fuck dueling.

Why aren't we just leaving and going and telling Kitty that we found him and Sabrina's being a cunt about it?

That's the only route that doesn't end with getting senselessly beaten senseless by Alexis or somehow miraculously beating Alexis and having Sabrinas wrath upon her increased.

I'll actually ask for confirmation on refusing the duel.

>>28354502
Out of earshot.
>>

She can say we were being disruptive in her gym.

>>28354492
She hasn't stated that she won't let us see Goldie, I think? Just that she'd be "satisfied" if we dueled Alexia, because she's still feeling from that loss/tie from last time.

>>28354498
Does refusal mean we leave? Because I wanted to continue to insist on meeting Goldie, even if we refused.
>>
>>28354498
Know what'd be hot right now?
Crunch.
Yep
>>
>>28354509
Yeah, refuse, but continue to insist on meeting Goldie.

Maybe Alexis too, if the others are up for it.
>>
>>28354454
Didn't she say the opposite of that?

Like Sabrina flat out said she'd cut the intensive training for Alexis if we won.

Shouldn't we be naive enough to trust her word at this point?

I mean did everyone ignore the

>spare Alexis further intensive training

>>28354509
Tell her we literally dragged ourselves out of the hospital to find Goldie, we'e not in any condition to fight.
If she persists, tell her if she needs that big a handicap, then it's not worth fighting her ever again.

Then we're off to tell on her.

>>28354587
Cripple fight! That does seem like something she'd do.
>>
>>28354572
Except refusing is also lose you idiot.

Do you honestly not think Alexis and Goldenrod aren't watching this, and Sabrina isn't going to go "See, it looks like Cerulean doesn't care about you after all".

How the fuck are people not fucking getting this.
>>
>>28354577
are we allowed to accept the fight then surrender immediately?

technically there was a fight. Sabrina only said a match had to happen before she reduces the training, after all...
>>
>>28354598
We get it anon, we're just scared.
We don't want to die, we love ceru too.
>>
>>28354595
Why do you think we'll be able to leave unmolested.

You're acting like it won't have any repercussions.

There are worst things than being beaten up.
>>
>>28354581
She only said she'll stop putting Alexis through intensive training.

No way she won't punish her for losing again.
>>
>>28354603
OH FUCK THAT'D BE SOME SAMURAI SHIT
"I accept your challenge. And surrender. You win."

Totally game for that.
>>
>>28354587
Oh dear lord.

>"So, Alexis. As you can see, your /friend/ is not exactly in peak condition at the moment."
>-Loud snapping noise followed by a scream.-
>"There, fish, I've evened the odds for you."
>Alexis sits on the ground, sobbing, with her legs bent the wrong way.
>>
"Hi Alexis... you could probably just put me to sleep right now and it would all be over." And we actually no how to induce a psychic coma in ourselves.
>>
>>28354509
All i'm hearing are people not wanting to risk themselves to save our friend.

I'm changine to accept even if it's not going to win.
>>
>>28354509
We accept.

We'll lose, but that's not important.

If there's even a small chance that we can help our friends, then we fucking take it.

Because that's the kind of girl we are, and it's time to make sure everyone knows it.
>>
>>28354598
We don't wanna screw anyone over.

The problem is there's no path out of here without screwing someone over.
>>
Since confronting her isn't winning changing my vote to accept.
>>
>>28354622
No. Sabrina said it was to the knockout. It ends when someone gets knocked out.
>>
>>28354509
We accept.

Our friends are worth it.

You may also spare some words for calling her out. At your risk.

>>
>>28354598
Have you ever had major surgery done? You don't feel like moving, much less fighting. And ANY strenuous movement can burst your stitches and risk killing you, or worsening your wound at the least.
It's a goddamn miracle we WALKED here without busting out stitches and bleeding all over the dome seeing as Ceru just had a full body skin graft, and organ replacement.
>>
>>28354643
>Accept
May we not die. May the spoons protect us all.
>>
>>28354643
REFUSE.
>>
>>28354643
[X] Accept

But call her out first. We may be in terrible shape, but this is for our friends.
>>
>>28354643
Refuse
Why are you so mean miss sabrina? did someone take something from you?
>>
>>28354643
>>[] Refuse
We are freshly out of an operation that nearly killed us and we can barely walk.
>>
>>28354643
>Refuse
>>
>>28354630
Then the only thing we can do is stand by our principles.

>>28354633
Then we fucking get fucking knocked out.

Because if we do lose, than Sabrina will probably be less hard on Alexis.

And that's worth it, because Alexis is our friend isn't she?

Or was that just a matter of convenience?
>>
>>28354643
>[X] Accept
>>
>>28354643
>[x] Accept
"It shouldn't be any trouble for Alexis to quickly knock me out when the walk here nearly did so already."
>>
>>28354643
Can we use REST at will?
because we could just collapse upon entering the battle. We -are- walking around after surgery.

If we can REST, then [x]yes
>>
>>28354643
>Refuse.
I'm not playing your game today, Sabrina.

And you can believe Giovanni will want to hear about this. Somme of us are actually concerned for our teammates.

Call her out for making us fight in our condition and say we'll do it anyways.
>>
>>28354686
Et tu brutus?
>>
>>28354676
if REST counts as knockout, then I'm game for this as well.

Refuse. Our skin is literally held on by thread and you fucking retards want to fight?

Also can you bring it to numbers instead of words?

Oh boy, this is going to hurt and I would rather not mix words with the evil lady.

>>28354643

>>
>>28354708
or we lose and our stitches burst open and we bleed out because Sabrina won't help us.
>>
>>28354708
We lose we die. Seriously. Major surgery. Fighting bad.
>>
>>28354702
Stop being so fucking selfish.

Alexis will probably be able to knock us out in one hit, and she'll not aim to kill us.

The important thing is that Sabrina be less hard on her since that'll balance the dishonor of Alexis beating us.
>>
>>28354643
>[] Accept
>>
>>28354695
As you can imagine I get that alot.

>>28354724
If you're not willing to put your life on the line for the sake of your friends, then they're not your fucking friends at all you cowardly fuck.
>>
>>28354643
Refuse.
>>
>>28354643
Oh and in case a vote without smacktalk doesn't count as voting against it, I would like to say we shouldn't antagonize Sabrina more.

If anything, "When one of us is unconscious in the ring you'll drop this? Fine."
>>
We got out of extreme surgery, got out of bed, walked everywhere... and people want to give up just because a bitch is mean.

Boohoo. Its time to show Sabrina that we don't give up. Ever.
>>
I know accept is a HORRIBLE idea, but I don't see Ceru /not/ accepting.

This is one of those situations that makes me tense as fuck.
>>
>>28354723
>>28354724
don't exaggerate bruise is outside and will get Team Rocket if we dont turn up. Hell crazy Kitty may already be on her way.
>>
>>28354738
Yep
>>28354735
I can tell
>>
>>28354727
I don't know if she'll won't aim to kill us.

It sounds like Sabrina's putting her through some brutal shit.

Maybe if we can Rest immeadiately everyone can save face.

yfw Alexis knows Dream Eater...
>>
>>28354738
You're thinking with your head and not your heart.

You really think Alexis will murder us?

Do you have that little faith in your friends?
>>
>>28354727
How is that selfish? If we get hit by anything, it could break our stitches or duck up our unhealed grafts. Then there are complications and major blood loss.
Stop being fucking retarded.
>>
>>28354756
no
NO
NOOOOOOOOOOO
DON'T REST
DON'T FUCKIN' DO IT
>>
>>28354763
It's cool man, we have plenty of tenacity to burn until medical team arrives.

Oh wait.
>>
>>28354643
>[X] accept
>>
>>28354754
how long do you think it will take us to bleed out?
given that we just had major surgery and are covered in stitches, NOT VERY FUCKING LONG.
>>
>>28354643
>[X] Accept
>>
>>28354756
DREAM ABOUT MAKING FRIENDS WITH ALEXIS

instead of dark/evil, we shall rely on the power of hugs!
>>
>>28354771
fainting due to dream eater is a lot better than getting pummeled by telekinetically thrown rocks.
>>
For blood loss, you realize that you can just freeze your blood, right?

If we accept, can we ask her for a teleport to the hospital in the event that our stitches get totally fucked?

>>28354786
>>
>>28354643
>[] Accept

And call that bitch out.

>>28354786
That's actually really useful. Just freeze everything.

After we finish this we need a nice long nearly frozen bath.
>>
>>28354786
oh thats clever but also dangerous if we fuck it up.
>>
>>28354786
oh yes, because we can TOTALLY control how much blood we freeze.
>>
>>28354743
There's a difference between cowardly and sensible. Jumping in head first when it could kill you for no reason other then pride is stupid.

>>28354761
I have little faith in Sabrina.
>>
>>28354791
Niggah we magic
>>
>>28354643
why would you ask for it three times? REFUSE. We voted a bunch of times already wtf?
>>
>>28354804
we take 1/8 damage from ice. Assuming we don't have an ability that actually heals from it by now.

Why does everyone think Alexis is gonna be all friendly when she sees us?

Can you imagine the unrelenting shit Sabrina's "intensive training" has done to her?

Don't assume she'll be too happy to us.

New speculations. Tallying.

there is no pride here. Only friendship and determination not to let our friends down.

>>28354808
That's not the question.

Do you honestly think that the QM is trying to lure us into a trap to kill us?

When did you lose your heart?

How can you not understand what this is really about?

You're being a coldhearted coward and trying to justify it as being logical.

But that's not who Cerulean is.
>>
>>28354818
I'm sometimes know for my crazy ideas, but what if we freeze the floor/room so we can get around better.

That way we can get in close so we can "hug" her so much she passes out from how cold we make it.
>>
>>28354812
I think he is repeatedly giving us the chance to step back and go. "Wait a moment, this could seriously get us killed"

when the DM, or in this case QM, asks "are you sure" YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE.
>>
>>28354812
Because you're a fucking moron you fucking moron.

How the fuck can you not fucking get that the QM fucking wants you to fucking accept because it won't fucking kill us you fucking fuckhead.

Are you literally autistic?
>>
I feel like the friendship crowd is getting carried away.. You can be friends with the living only.
>>
whoa now people calm down with the insults. Just because the vote doesn't go your way does not mean you stop being polite.
>>
come on guys, just accept and throw the match with rest. We can handle a dream eater no problem(hopefully gaining tenacity)
>>
>>28354840
How is not dying cold hearted? What can we do if we die? Can we save our friends? Can we protect the dome?
No. All that'll happen is well get a plaque that says "cerulean, died over something insignificant." And Giovanni will be pissed he wasted our grafts on us.
I have common fucking sense.

It's the opposite.

He's asking "are you sure you want to bitch out on your friends just because you could get hurt."

and "are you sure you think someone you befriended would attempt to murder you even though they could take us down rather easily without resorting to such measures."

In other words, "are you sure you're not abandoning playing in character for heartless self-preservation which isn't warranted because this is not a death trap"

You make me sick.
>>
>>28354829
How exactly does Ice Body work in AoPH? Is it still us recovering 1/16th our health if it's hailing? Do we have to make it hail or would making the area really fucking cold work?

>>28354841
I say start with hitting her with all three Water Guns in order to get her soaked and throwing an Icy Wind at her. And we have our Freezer Sacs pump out as much cold into us as possible to freeze our blood to keep us from bleeding and make us faster.

Then we close the distance.

If we have Ice Body, couldn't we expend a bit of stamina to chill ourselves and heal before the fight?

>>28354865

Do we have any reason to think Sabrina is literally MURDEROUS. Yeah, she may be a monster who broke her son's wrist, but that isn't that huge of a deal in this setting, it's mid-tier child abuse. They can heal that shit pretty easy.
She's pissed at us for interfering with her regime and wants to punish us.
>>
>>28354865
We're not going to fucking die you imbecile.

Have you forgotten about Lavender Tower?

There is NO way to cover up a murder.

If we die, Sabrina gets exiled.

Stop being retarded you retard.

I have also now accepted it that we are going to die and have emotionally distanced myself from the character.

Better to say that it's just what I mentioned, capability of freezing over wounds with ice. The full implement would be fine-tuned control so that it's just a scab.

let's accept. We need to find friend.

And we can REST
>>
>>28354865
Giovanni will be pissed if we run from our problems

Rockets don't run we blast off and thats only after we have tried our hardest.
>>
>>28354894
Professor also said she can erase memories.
>>
>>28354882
But they are called after being killed.

Like our ghost would be if we get killed.

Which would get Sabrina in big trouble.

Can we PLEASE get another revote since people are apparently so stupid they forget that ghosts are a thing?

So it's like what Vonnegut was doing in Shadow Quest? Every time he got stabbed / slashed or whatever, he just froze it shut.

As confirmed by Professor earlier, Sabrina could alter our memories.

Because I think people aren't understanding what the situation is about.

This is Anime-Frankenstein quest, and yet they can't see what's the point of all this on an emotional level.

They're just trying to be sly, and only succeeding in being douches.
>>
>>28354930
Not enough to finger Sabrina. And she doesn't have to do it after we die, she can do it before and then kill us in a way we can't see.
Or cause a sparring accident, I mean we are covered in unhealed major fucking surgery wounds.

Of course we don't.

We're going to lose.

Bad.

But in doing so, we'll let Alexis regain her "honor" so Sabrina will stop tormenting her.

And Alexis will know that we still consider her our friend.
>>
>>28354987
Throw in a couple >it all happened so fast!
Which ends up with her being chewed out for negligence, not exiled for murder.

I don't think our remoraids even have ammo in them.

That's nice and all, but we'll also be dead, so that won't be worth very much.

You have some fucked up priorities if you think risking death is worth it to appeal to some girl we have seen once.

Struggling against the psychic binds, the prospect of a duel sinks into your mind with a tired weight. You can't do that right now, you couldn't possibly deal- but.

But this.. This is for your friends, for people that you care about.
Alexis did right by you, and you'll do right by her as well.

With a sigh, you nod your head with tears welling in your eyes," Till knockout, right? I'll do it." As you resign yourself to this farce, Sabrina lets you go with a smile.

"Good." You feel the room around your peel away as you're displaced into a new area.
A round arena lies before you, a multitude of strange disks lie in the ground, of the black floor. with the field outlined with a vibrant white metal.

Sabrina stands before you a moment before another person teleports in.

Gone is her long blonde hair, and in its place is a short, shaven head. Her eyes are sunken deep into her skull with fatigue, and a vein protruding from her forehead as she stares at you.

"This is the Alexis that you will be fighting," Her monotony returns, as though she's bored," She has gained sufficient amounts of psionic power, she should not fall to any tricks you may have. You are indeed doing a wonderful thing for her- and my offspring, allowing your body to be martyred for her salvation."

Alexis stares you down, a harsh buzzing filling the air with her power.

"I am the leader that draws forth the power necessary for pure humans to live in this world." She walks out of the ring, military bearing, " I would witness how she compares, despite this handicap."
Turning upon a heel, Sabrina stands between, judging the fight.
"Till knockout, the two of you may begin."

Alexis's power surges forth, and instantly you feel a pressure upon your mind like before as hard metal disks rise up from the holes in the ground...

>Your move!
>First battle with new armaments- choose wisely!
>Points may be spent on techniques!
>>
>>28355018
What makes you think winning is the goal?

The important thing is that we tried, and Alexis stops being given a hard time because she crushed that Cerulean brat as she should have.

Up Watergun by 1 level to 3. That should cost 2 xp.

Hit Sabrina with all three of them, try to soak her in water.

Upgrade Icy Wind by 1 point, this should cost 3.

Send an Icy Wind towards her as well if we can.

Turn our Freezer Array on full blast, cool ourself down and the area around us, freeze our blood to scab it so we don't bleed out.

Dodge the incoming projectiles, lateral movement.

Buy Crunch for 1.

After she's soaked and freezing close the distance, feint a Water Gun, and Crunch her.

And I guess getting smashed with metal disks at 100km/h counts as a knockout, too. Everything else is side effects.

>>28355080
How is it any more suicidal than just taking our lumps.

And just falling unconscious won't count, Sabrina won't allow that.

Of course I mean Alexis. Sabrina would paste us on our best day.

I'd say we should definitely get Feint Attack, given that it's Evil yet doesn't involve biting someone with pointy teeth.

Could let us get one hit in.

>>28355096
changed my mind
>>28355103
this. if she's been trained so hard that she collapses, even better. Sabrina can't train her harder if the training is what made her lose.

Turn this into a winter wonderland. Upgrade Icy Wind and Water Gun. Soak Alexis and the area around her with Water Guns. Make sure to cover the holes for metal disks around her as well. Send an Icy wind in that direction.

And stop our bleeding and run cold so we get the energy boost from Seel.

And for the love of all that is good and hold dodge. Don't get hit.

or

>>28355072
with possible exclusion of crunch for feint attack.

>>28355142
Ah, yes. I'll add that. Going to need a proper conclusive vote of what techniques to train. Hard to tally the votes along with plans.
>>
Guys...actually fight this isn't going to end well if we just up and faint Sabrina may actually mean to kill us. Metal disks are not Non-lethal. Alexis looks to be mentally abused to the point where she probably doesn't recognise us anymore. Hugs may not win this one.
>>
It started out with humorous spoon jokes.

How did we get here?

>>28355029
Upgrade Icy Wind and Water Gun.

Try to freeze the discs down and keep at range.
>>
>>28355155
no chance of us tanking this is there? would have been badass too :(
>>
>>28355111
>[X] Freeze the projectiles and close distance for a hug.

Can we try to warm ourselves up a bit? Last time she fell asleep because of it.
>>
>>28355164
Psychics require concentration yes? now tell me, who can concentrate if THEY ARE FROZEN SOLID
>>
>>28355164
its the other way around. She can't recognize us anymore, so we use the strongest impression we had on her: hugs
>>
>>28355161
List the 3 choices as options and let's do the number vote.

>>28355168
Tanking is even more no-go. The only chance we have is freezing everything.

Idiots ranting about friendship and thinking this was going to be a friendly fluffy hug match.

>>28355161
Start by freezing the disks down so she doesn't have stuff to throw at us. Also freeze the fuck out of her with Water Guns and Icy Wind. Keep our distance, use our new physiology to try and dodge.

Don't go in for a hug or feint attack until she's slowed down.

>>28355170
We should probably make our hug cold so she passes out.

Isn't Feint Attack, like, us rapidly moving with no accurate location?
Can't we use that to dodge instead of...attack?

I also like trying to freeze the discs down. Going in for the hug seems to be ill-advised.

>>28355196
Wut? Don't you remember how our last battle ended? We were warm and she fell asleep. Cold probably would keep her awake.
>>
Considering we had to roll to even stand up earlier today, I think any kind of rapid movement or straining effort would be dangerous and probably make us collapse.

That would actually be a good thing. We try to end it in one single shot, if we fail, we will be knocked out by the effort.
>>
>>28355189
No, I knew damn well that we were going to get the shit beaten out of us.

But the point is that we won't be killed, since Sabrina specifically told Alexis it was to the knockout, and it'll help Alexis stop being abused.

This is going to hurt, but it's worth the pain.
>>
>>28355161
This>>28355072

But freeze the projectiles down so we can close distance.

And either Crunch or Feint attack is fine. Since we'll be freezing ourself our might be a damn good club right now.
>>
>>28355210
Then by the power of hugs we will revive her!
>>
>>28355164
let me reword what I said here Hugs may not win this one until we have a way of dealing with iminent danger
>>
i'm mad that we are doing the stupid "for the power of friendship" shonen battle, i know we are playing a quest based on shounen and friendship and cuddles are all good but we can do it without the absurd stupidity.
well, since i'd be constantly bitching if i stayed i'm out now, gonna read the fight from the archives.
hope it all goes well.

also, it really is not a good thing to ask for the same vote three times prof. it only aggravates people further and basically you beg for the shitstorm to hit and for people to yell about rails if you do it.
>>
Maybe freezing our fur will act as armor and keep us from getting too fucked up...
>>
>>28355210
even Sabrina's not that stupid. braindead rangers are not useful rangers. The cost and rarity of them means that they need to be able to think for themselves and stay alive.
>>
>>28355216
Yeah let's try using ice and water attacks because they don't involve moving.
>>
Hmm I wonder if Sabrina is a purity nut who thinks blended rangers are sub human. It would make her desire to prove us less then her students as well as her hate for Goldenrod.
>>
Such anxiety...
>>
>>28355226
Our tail might be a good club. I hate missing words.

>>28355236
It is spiky, so it might slow down the disk a bit. Hopefully enough. And the layer of fat is a bit of a cushion. And we have cartilage which adds some durability.

It'll still hurt like a bitch.

>>28355241
We will still want to dodge. I'd rather accidentally pull a stitch a bit than get smacked with one of those disks.
>>
>>28355236
That's a good point, we should do that if we can.
>>
>>28355228
>>28355228
No, that will make us dead both inside and out
>>
>>28355224
Considering how Alexis looks and the state we are in, I am afraid the resulting wounds would still kill us accidently.

>>28355241
Cover her in water and freeze her solid, or at least keep it up long enough that we collapse from the effort.

Watergun Alexis, her projectiles, and where they're coming out of.

Then throw as powerful an Icy Wind at her as we can manage. Get her and her disks nice and frozen.

Upgrade both of these as we do it if we can.
>>
Feint Attack is a backstab skill not a dodge move.
>>
>>28355260
>>28355260
[X] Water Gun Left and right to the discs. Watergun Head right at her.

Icy wind to to freeze dics in place/make ice area so we can move better and to slow her attacks/reactions down.
>>
We could just say something like "I humbly request you incapacitate me with a mental rather than telekinetic technique." While just focusing on neutralizing the disks.

And why are people so gung ho on feint attack? He didn't even say if it can dodge.
>>
>>28355281
Definitely. Prof encourages lateral thinking. If it's a possible application of a move, go for it.
>>
>>28355289
Actually Feint attack is pretending to move one way when you actually move the other.

The 'attack' part is just part of the move. I don't see why we can't remove it.
>>
>>28355289
And water gun is a gun to shoot at things, not something you spray on hard surfaces and then chill to make mist...

...

oh wait.


We can use moves for things other than their intended purpose.
>>
>>28355276
At higher levels you'll be able to use other attacks from Feint attack, achieving an instinctual, high accuracy.

>>28355281
Feint attack by virtue is made after appearing unassuming and then suddenly lashing out.
It's what Kitty had a habit of.

At yet even higher levels and your current physiology, it could allow for rapid movement as well, devoid of killing intent.
>>
Nothing in Feint Attack says speed.

>>28355260
[x]water gun
We don't want to be hit by spinning iron disks

Awesome then, let's go with feint attack. It should work for our purposes here.

Blank our mind
Move with the flow

>>28355290
That me, name came off for some reason.

Maybe instead of aiming at her with our head water gun we should aim at the disks she already has to knock away those and make them useless to her when we freeze them.
>>
>>28355302
>At yet even higher levels and your current physiology, it could allow for rapid movement as well, devoid of killing intent.
Meaning the plan to use it to dodge is bullshit by virtue of not having high enough levels in it.
>>
>>28355302
>>28355302
Get feint attack, we'll need it later as well
>>
>>28355302
Get Feint Attack 3
>>
>>28355318
It prevents her from reading our mind, man. No matter what level it is.

It'll be good for this fight if nothing else.
>>
>>28355302
level 2 feint attack then

don't rush, slowly move forward while focusing on dodging projectiles with feint attack. this kind of movement shouldn't be taxing on the body.
>>
>>28355318
>>28355302
What would level 2 gives us, Prof? Level 3? With how many points we have, we could afford to level it up all the way to 4 (with 1 point remaining), although hopefully we wouldn't need to go that far (if lesser levels are acceptable or if we go with another plan).
>>
>>28355323
It hides only the killing intent..
>>
>>28355331
If that's all it does, I'm pretty sure Professor would've told us that using it to dodge now is a bad idea.
>>
Feint attack upgraded to 2

3 will yield the option to perform single target attacks in chain.

>Feint Watergun

For instance. Will hit unless the opponent adequately reads the suspicious move. It will not hit aimed targets however as a reflex shot.
>>
What if we level up the water gun to max we can and shoot the discs down?
>>
>>28355347
we don't have enough points for that.
>>
>>28355346
Can we upgrade our Water Guns and Icy Wind.

Icy wind if we upgrade it will be effectively Level 5 due to our Freezer Array. That ought to be really nice.
>>
>>28355346
Upgrading to 3 will leave us with 4 points left. Anyone fine with that? I'd be willing to vote for that option.

He just did, you simply can't read. Nor do I think you know what Feint attack even does. Let me illustrate it.

Situation 1, no feint attack

>esper catches the killing intent
>dodges by virtue of sensing your intent

Situation2, FA
>you move towards esper
>FA suppresses your intentions
>suddenly you lash out
>esper is caught by surprise and the attack connects

And I don't think level 2 counts as "high enough" to use it for dodging.
>>
>>28355347
>>28355346
The only reason we can upgrade our Evil skills is because they're instinctual, right? Other skills still require training? Or is that only for acquiring them?

Would Water Gunning count as instinctual to the Remoraid? The entire mechanism for using it is better since we have Remoarid stuff instead of Seel stuff.

Also for upgrades I'd get Feint Attack to 2, Icy Wind to 4, Water Gun to 3, and Frost Breath to 1. Frost Breath will be effectively Level 2 so if we get close it'll be pretty effective.

As Alexis lashes out with the disks, sending them flying for vital locations with bizarre speed.

Yet your eyes see them and training kicks in along with instinct as you feel a small pressure in the back of your head. Arms forward, you unleash twin gouts of pressurized water that tear through the bandages upon your hands, forcing down the disks despite psychic power.
The last one, aimed for Alexis is a chilling spray fired from the mouth, bursting your bandages and dousing her with a sopping coldness as the area's filled with mist much like before.

>Battlefield drenched!
>Misty haze established!

Alexis brings up more disks as she runs to you, bearing one as a buckler, and swiftly removing the moisture from her body.

She seems intent on closing the distance..

Snarl is fine. I'd be up with that.

The question is, do we stop at level 1 or 2?

Launch one hell of an Icy Wind at her. Upgrade it if possible.

Freeze the ground she's trying to walk on and chill her to the bone. The place is still wet all around her, and even if she dried herself off the moisture in the air will make her wet.

Buy Snarl and Frost Breath, Snarl as soon as we're able to.

Spray another Water Gun to thoroughly drench the ground she is charging on then follow it with Icy Wind to freeze her feet to the floor or at the very least misstep and lose her coordination for a moment.

With her in place we continue to freeze with Icy Wind while spraying her down with more water a la maniac ice sculpture. She'll be able to lash out even totally mobilized but all that ice will still sap her energy like a zubat on fresh meat.
>>
>>28355546
You can buy Frost breath now if you wish.
>>
>>28355555
It's mostly her trying to crush us thing.
We can lose, but not with our organs squished outside of us.

When did we get that?

[x] gust icy wind AS HARD AS YOU CAN
Make it look like you're going to freeze her over
Then collapse from your wounds
>>
>>28355565
Yes. Buy 1 level of it, our Freezer Array will get it to Level 2 which is tolerable and not eat too many points which we need for other things like Icy Wind and Snarl.
>>
>>28355555
because Sabrina may actually intend to kill us and make it look like an accident.
>>
Sure buy one level of frost breath. Also buy Icy wind since we are planning on using both.

Because Sabrina can read our mind. If we throw the match, she'll know it.

The goal is to try our hardest, but still lose.
>>
It seems we already have a level of Frost Breath. What?
>>
>>28355488
Launch out a Icy Wind and Snarl her. We should be able to bare our teeth with menace and sent out icy pain at the same time.

Between the Freezing and the Evilness we ought to severely throw her off her game.
>>
>>28355569
Crytten, probably.
>>
>>28355565
either use frost breath or icy wind.
Either one.
>>
>>28355586
It's still 0 in the pastebin for me. I haven't refreshed my tab of it yet.

Our Snarl is at level 2 as well.
>>
>>28355586
Because we have the freezer array we auto get a plus one.
>>
>>28355593
I'd wait for her to get closer before Frost Breath, she's still closing the distance so we impede her movement with Icy Wind, then we Frost Breath her once she's slowed down.
>>
>>28355597
Unrefreshed, mine has Frost Breath at 1 and Snarl at 0.

Odd.
>>
Snarl (2) purchased, Reduces technical attack by rank equivalent. costs no stamina.

Frost breath (1) purchased.
>>
>>28355597
>Our Snarl is at level 2 as well
I meant to say that I refreshed and confirmed the changes. We have Frost Breath at 1 and Snarl at 2.

>>28355598
No, we spent a point.

We had 8 initially. We spent 2 points for level 2 Feint, 2 points for level 2 Snarl, and 1 point for Frost Breath. We have 3 points remaining.

>>28355603
Refresh again?
>>
>>28355598
Freezer Array only affects acquired skills. It's not acquired at 0.
>>
>>28355605
Welp let's get creative then.
She's charging us on an icy floor, so Frost Breath that shit, then Snarl as she starts to hover.
>>
>>28355611
Floor isn't icy. Its just wet.
>>
>>28355605
Does using Snarl take up an action?

>>28355607
With 3 points I think our best investment would be Icy Wind. Assuming we're allowed to buy it with XP now. Considering we just got some major Ice implants we might be allowed to.

>>28355611
Icy Wind is probably better at freezing a wide area, like the path she's on.
>>
>>28355621
>With 3 points I think our best investment would be Icy Wind. Assuming we're allowed to buy it with XP now. Considering we just got some major Ice implants we might be allowed to.
Agreed. Icy Wind upgrade please.

Then freeze the arena, interrupt her powers with Snarl, and try to continue water gun shots.
>>
>>28355620
He might have meant to say that we'd use Frost Breath to freeze the floor.

What's the range even with that move? And I think Icy Wind would be more efficient, wouldn't it?
>>
>>28355605
1 more rank in Icy Wind please.
>>
You begin to snarl at her, besides yourself, readying a frost breath to intercept.

-Complication!-

Alexis vanishes midstep as you open your mouth for an icy attack.

Esper teleportation!

It could be from any angle! You have a moment to react!

Dive down to the ground and slide whle using Frost Breath to freeze the area above us.

[X]Feint Attack

Feint Attack so we're sure it hits and she can't detect it coming. Smash her face in with our sharp freezing claws. The Snarl should have still done something to her so she'll be a bit off.

If that dazes her follow up with a Frost Breath.

And make our fur as cold as possible and freeze our blood. We should be running as cold as possible as that helps us out a lot.

Why would Alexis know that we suddenly acquired Dark/Feral attacks?

She hasn't seen us since our last fight, and we literally got these implants two days ago. I doubt she knows what got put in us.
>>
>>28355639
Create an Icy Wind surrounding our immediate area in as large a diameter as we can manage. She's likely coming in behind us but she may account for us expecting that, so best to hedge our odds.

As soon as we have her direction run away from her trailing our Icy Wind to discourage pursuit/further fatigue her.

If we make this a battle of wills we can have the advantage with her constantly losing strength faster than us, much quicker if we can land a decent blow.

God damn it. And against a 2.

We may need to spend Tenacity, oh well.

We should be getting a metric fuckload of Tenacity from today's events. I mean seriously, getting out of the hospital to track down our traumatized friend, ignoring the fact that our skin is literally stitched on right now because our friend needs us, and then getting into a fight with a powerful Esper with untested untrained implants so that we can save her from painful training and save our friend from his cunt of a mother.

We are the most badass 10 year old girl that ever walked this earth.

I can see it all now. Ceru loses sight of Alexis, and let's the cat instincts guide her. A tingle alerts her feral subconscious of a threat on her 5 o'clock. She ducks and rolls to about-face, seeing her target. The new targeting system in her optic centers immediately focuses her attention on the center of mass... up 2 inches. right 1 inch. The cat unleashes its murderous breath on the target 3 feet away, the chilling cold piercing her body, freezing everything in its path. Alexis' heart stops...

>>28356003
Icy Wind is an area attack, or can be focused to a locale. Good for cooling down/freezing an area, ideally after soaking the target(s) with water prior.

Ice Breath is exactly as it sounds, a short range 1 directional (likely conical) blast of super cold air. More like a shotgun in use.

You feel something tear as your instincts force you to lunge forward, spinning about upon a painful claw as you see the Esper miss a swing in your thoughtless actions.

You look her dead in the eye like an animal, glassy-eyed and absent of thought.

The girl pauses, trembling in fear as you unleash the most biting, frothing breath that you can muster, matched only by the one you expelled in your half-madness upon a hospital bed.

The cold erupts from your jaws, biting through her flesh in a straight line up until you see the breath bouncing the frozen moisture in the air off of an invisible wall.

Your senses return, and you try to right yourself, to stand up, yet only succeed in falling backwards, blood trickling down your leg from a ripped stitch.

In a panic, you apply your cold hands as it tries to seep through the bandages, your power over cold slowing the flow.

"Well, that is quite enough." Sabrina steps forward, her eyes locked upon Alexis,"This is what I've told you several times now, Many monsters can fight as beasts with a madness that cannot be read. To close the distance is foolish when you don't know the next move."

Alexis convulses, gripping at her chest, as she loses faculty of her body.

Sabrina shakes her head slowly and places her hands upon her disciple's chest, eliciting a snarl from you in her defense only to be glared at in return,"You are done." She sneers at you before turning back to Alexis.

Sabrina's hand pulses with power and Alexis starts moving again, taking a deep breath, coughing up bits of blood.

"Your implants will forever serve you well, Whelp of Lorelei. However you should practice restraint. You are infused with a dangerous creature, just as my son has. I am keeping him here alone for reason. I may allow you to see him, now that- and I hope you understand."

She finishes the technique on Alexis, whom slowly rises much to your relief, you'd thought for a moment that she'd been killed...

Dude. She was aiming for our vitals with the discs. Alexis has a murderboner.

Winning is the best option. Killing her, I agree, is not. But losing ourselves went out the window a while ago.
>>
>>28356043
A good lesson. We panicked and bought a bunch of dark moves. They're useful, but only in a panic situation.

Guys, be fucking CAREFUL next time. Don't use our rape attacks on practice fights.
>>
>>28356043
>However you should practice restraint
Haha, fuck you.

We blew this joint. ELITE to the max.
>>
>>28356050
Was she aiming for our vitals with her discs?

>>28356043
that felt good.
>>
>>28356000
If we are going by latest gen rules crits do 1.5x damage and sniper modifies that to 2.25x. However that is still *close* to being hit by an ice type Hyper Beam, sooooo...

And how could THAT happen without Alexis getting KO'd?

Go on, I'm all ears.
>>
>>28356080
Couldn't she have told Giovanni that?
>>
>>28356043
Woo. She's not dead. And we got a one shot on her. ELITE!

I'm liking our new implants.

And now we get to see Grumpy.

Give Alexis a hug, apologize, contain the cold we give off if we can so we're fuzzy and warm to hug. Cry. Try not to bleed out.
>>
I fully intended for Alexis to die. Evil techniques were mentioned at some point to not be allowed in duels. If not, it's this reason, they tend to be lethal.
>>
>>28356043
Hug Alexis. Give her the biggest warmest hug that we can muster and tell her that we hope she's okay, and that we can hang out and train together soon.
Then, we go see Grumpy.
>>
>>28356074
HUG HER.
>>
>>28356084
I wasn't voting, anon. I was reading through this quest while doing something else.

Really, now, when you start lashing out like this, you have to take a step back. You're becoming irritable, and that's harmful for our little group since it encourages bickering.
>>
>>28356080
If that was the case, why didn't she actually tell Giovanni?

>>28356096
How come she lived then?
>>
If we hug her remember to make them as warm as possible. I didn't like how Bruise shivered when we hugged him.
>>
>>28356096
>Evil techniques were mentioned at some point to not be allowed in duels.
I don't remember that ever. I remember that Vermillions and Cinnibars didn't do the dueling, but nothing about Evil techniques.
>>
>>28356096
True. But this wasn't a fair duel anyway.

Sabrina's fault, man.
>>
>>28356104
>How come she lived then?
We used frost. Much less lethal.
>>
>>28356096
Yeah we completely forgot about that.

I think almost killing someone might be better since it allows us to be horrified at our actions but not broken enough inside that we'll snap.

In the future though, don't encourage us to pick the secret murder option.
>>
>>28356088
we already sprayed down her disks with water. She was coming at us with just the one.
>>
>>28356104
I think cause we used Frost Breath and not an Evil attack
>>
>>28356096
i wished. it'd be a good lesson. also, it'd cause the sabrina bitch alot of problems if one of the students died in this stupid and unnecessary fight.
i am happy anyways with how things turn out though.
>>
>>28356096
Wasn't it Frost Breath that did her in, though?

>>28356101
Anon, there's a time and place for these kinds of things.

And this may be one of them. Alexis did say hugging reminded her of something.

>>28356104
I don't really know? All I'm saying is that's the implication from the dialogue.
>>
>>28356096
>Evil techniques were mentioned at some point to not be allowed in duels.

I don't think you ever posted this in the quest.
>>
>>28356096
Good thing we were using Evil techniques to dodge and position for using not-Evil for the actual attacking.
>>
>>28356087
yeah we may be ELITE now but we are still the lovable, hugable ball of fluff we've always been.

makes you wonder if Loreli raised us to be hugable because of her habit of collecting plushies.
>>
>>28356102
I don't give a shit, you're everything that I hate about stupid players.

>>28356106
There was a little tidbit where Dark types never sparred because they were auto-aiming for the kill.
>>
>>28356096
Then don't fucking encourage us to accept fights like a murderhobo.
>>
>>28356123

It would've been in a conversation with Kitty. Or my own insanity. She should've mentioned that she's out of the running for friendly duels due to her evil arts.
>>
>>28356125
Our usage of Frost Breath was pretty vicious. It was facilitated by an Evil technique and showed no restraint.

>>28356129
She probably gave us plenty of hugs, but I don't think she planned for us to get a Seel and then a Crytten.
>>
>>28356043

>>28356120
>I don't really know? All I'm saying is that's the implication from the dialogue.
The way I read it, she realized how dangerously unstable her son has become with the implant, which has probably gotten worse because of us. Bad enough that he had to run away from the rocket ranger.

Alexis wasn't exactly showing restraint either.
>>
>>28356133
Hell when we get a critical failure, don't encourage us to get a super high role guaranteed to do lethal damage.

Though I guess we learned why the type is called Evil.

Might make us not want to use Evil-Type moves again.

I don't really see anything that implies that we've been a bad influence on him. She was just comparing our crytten implants with Goldie's abra augments.
>>
>>28356152
If anything this makes me want to use evil attacks more! (On things that are not people or friends)

We could learn alot from Kitty.
>>
>>28356169
Agreed. They're damn effective.

Just.. don't use them in spars.

Honestly I cannot see upping Feint attack anymore. We don't want to inadvertantly attack friends.

"These things are not toys. You are no longer a person. You are a monster, and you must respect that fact."

You shake your head," I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. Arceus, Alexis, I'm so sorry." You feel tears well up in your eyes as you try to crawl over to the poor girl you nearly killed.

Yet it's all cut short as Sabrina extends her hand once more and Alexis vanishes," She will enjoy the warmth of her room and the lack of your presence." She turns a hand over, matter-of-fact, not dropping a beat to spare your emotions,"Do you still wish to see Goldenrod?"

Kitty's use of feint attack is due to Persian's fickle nature of lashing out at things for exceedingly little reason.

These combos were my intention all along when I lobbied for things like sniper remoraids, lock-on, focus energy, and crytten having frost breath. I just never thought we'd be fighting were (at least part of our collective unconscious) is scared for our life against a friend. And using feint attack won't always be necessary, lock-on does the same thing right out of the box. I guess that depends on how Prof has all these effects interact though. Does lock-on really guarantee a hit against a teleporting psychic?
>>
>>28356260
I just realized, Frost Breath has a base power of 60, and Technician is an ability that boosts the power of all moves with 60 or less base power by 50%! Factoring in same type attack bonus, our Frost Breath would have an effective base power of 303.75! And the best news of all is that a Normal type Pokemon in our region has this ability, and it is Meowth.

"Yes.. I'll see him.." You rise up wiping away your tears with downcast eyes, your leg stinging and forcing you into a limp.

"You said that you'll spare Alexis, right?" You sniffle, your heart heavy.

Sabrina looks upon you with a cold hardness that could bite through even ice,"I'm sorry that I cannot keep that promise, I've given her the training she's asked for. She's only redoubled her efforts and shaved her head since that exam. A pewter died and she blames herself.

I foresaw your coming, as I did her death. Yet I told her if she could see where she stood with you, I would train her in the next level of Esper techniques. She is not yet ready, and I am sure that she understands this now."

Sabrina's speech is dry and emotionless as before. You wonder now. The emotion, was it a mask broken or a mask worn?

With a snap of her fingers, the two of you are displaced to a room with a single red light falling upon a meditating goldenrod upon an altar.

A large bushy mustache upon his face, and an upside-down star upon his forehead.

"As promised, it is a pause in his training." Goldenrod's eyes drift open and you feel a pain in the back of your mind as he glares at you with deadly eyes.

He growls through his mouth and mind, "You, I hate you. Why are you here?)

Not so sweet, he's terrible at friendship. I also expected that.

Hmm, we may be able to Feint Attack into a hug. He'll never see it coming.

Huh, neat.

Looks good to me. Hopefully we can stop spending Tenacity.
>>
>>28356460

Caiss died because his teammates ran. One was an Esper.
>>
>>28356457
yes. This was a good lesson.
I honestly thought they were the same thing before.
>>
>>28356461
Didn't we only spend 1 point of Tenacity on Alexis?

Or are we losing Tenacity because we nearly saw our friend die.

And hey, 5 xp, so 6 xp total. We have enough now to upgrade Icy Wind, Water Gun, and Lock On.

>>28356470
Never abandon a team mate. We aren't going to run away from Grumpy.
>>
>>28356470
Alexis blames herself for the Pewter's death.

Are you implying what I think you're implying?
>>
I would like to get frost breath up to 3 maybe.

It's pretty frosty.

>>28356461
...Yeah I don't think beating Alexis was really worth it in any sense.

2 exp and 3 tenacity seems better.
>>
>>28356476
Would you say we aren't going to give him up or let him down?
>>
>>28356355
So, guys.

How will Cerulean see Sabrina now? She's definitely still scary, but is she beginning to understand her motivations a little?

>>28356483
We're back at 8 exp, though. So. Really. This was a gain for us.
>>
>>28356461
>- 2 Tenacity
Weren't we supposed to burn only 1 as per >>28355844
?

Or did we burn 1 more somewhere?
>>
>>28356491
Whoops, 6 exp, not 8. Added it wrong.
>>
>>28356492
He's saying that defeating her in the way we did (almost killing her) cost tenacity in and of itself.
>>
>>28356476
>Or are we losing Tenacity because we nearly saw our friend die.

That's why. The burn is not counted towards the results, unless you would likt it to be.
>>
>>28356481
I'm sure Anon is talking about RIGHT NOW, while he is trying to push us away.
>>
>>28356491
>She's definitely still scary, but is she beginning to understand her motivations a little?
>10 year old understanding tough-love mothers

Nope. In fact it would be OOC to understand her.
>>
>>28356501
Ah. Damn. So we're still at 6 Tenacity.

That bites.
>>
>>28356492
Going into the fight we had 6 tenacity.
Burned 1 for the crit, down to 5.
Almost killing her burned 2. Down to 3.
Walking out of the hospital like a badass gave us 3. Back up to 6.
>>
>>28356491
Well she still did break her sons wrist because he couldn't bend a damn spoon.

So that's still out there. Worst mother of the year award.
>>
>>28356501
Prof, how many hugs can we chain together with Feint attack before Grumpy notices?
Infact, can we use Feint Attack and turn into some sort of Hugging Solid Snake. Walking into rooms, and hugging everyone without anyone noticing?
>>
We should arrange to meet Alexis later. Away from Sabrina. We've only met her on the battlefied and almost killing her is not a good impression.
>>
>>28356514
But that defeats the purpose and would only serve to make everyone miserably cold.
>>
>>28356520
Our fur keeps cold in. It's an insulator. With some control we should be able to not exude any cold.
>>
So yeah.

Crytten. Much deadlier than Remoraids.
>>
>>28356520
They may end up a bit cold, but in the end we would be warming up their hearts!
>>
>>28356506
No, we're at Tenacity 7 now.

The -1 from that was already added for a cumulative -2. We got +3 earlier on from leaving the hospital on our feet, so we got net +1.
>>
>>28356532
To be fair we haven't invested in Lock On yet.
>>
>>28356542
We also don't have any low-accuracy high damage moves that synergize with lock-on yet.
>>
>>28356553
>No low accuracy moves
>Frost Breath
>>
>>28356509
She broke his wrist because he tried cheating. And like I said before, it is merely a harsh punishment somewhere above a caning, it isn't possible permanently damaging mutilation here. Hell, she just healed someone from frozen internal organs. GenWun Psychic OP.

>>28356534
It's Remoraid's sniper that makes Frost Breath particularly lethal, otherwise it is about as good any other attacking move, excep tit trades the chance of extra damage for piercing defenses.
>>
Should've given harsher oenakties for surgical wounds. Then again, in this assortment of rolls even -8 wouldn't have mattered due to a crit , a fail-cancel followed into overwhelming success.

It's interesting. Cerulean's definitely a trooper in either case.

Remember when she actually doubted her ability? Oh boy.
>>
>>28356532
It's to be expected that they're beasts at melee, anon. The assault aspect was their whole appeal.

I suppose we could explain how Cerulean acted in this duel to her post-operation state and her bestial implants. Cornered animals bite harder, or something like that.

>>28356553
>>28356558
We've also got Ice Shards. Though, even with Lock-On, I doubt we'll have the Dexterity to handle them until we've got Thrown Weapons training.

>>28356561
ELITE

Anyway, aren't you tired by now, Prof? Can't believe you're still active.
>>
>>28356558
You really think Frost Breath is the kind of thing you combo with lock-on? Ha.

90% is not low accuracy. It may not be as good as the rest of our moves, but it's not low accuracy.
>>
>>28356561
I would doubt myself if I got shitty seel genes in my body too.
>>
>>28356561
we still doubt our ability in most things. Like in fighting monsters.
But in getting our friend back? 100% certain.

You raise a good point, noddin off here.
>>
>>28356571
Hey, man. Our mom began with Seel implants too.

And look where she is now. Lost in an icy wasteland and possibly doing battle with a legendary monster that embodies ice itself.

>>28356576
Have a good one, Prof. Thanks for the game.
>>
SO.
How tough will the battle to hug goldie be?
Can we even manage it, after busting the stitches in our leg?

Also: busted legstitches. Is it really wise for us to just freeze them shut again?
>>
>>28356576
Indeed, thanks for the game. I'm really not sure what to think of everything that happened today.
...
See you tomorrow!
>>
>>28356579
>>28356579
she comes back, with great blue wings
>>
>>28356585
>not sure what to think
Let's start with something simple.
AUGH MY LEG.

After that:
Oh no alexis are you okay?

And finally:
Hey goldie, we missed you!
>>
>>28356582
No, of course not. We need to go back to the hospital asap after this
>>
>>28356561
That's because we're a Rocket now. ELITE.

>>28356553
We'll be getting Blizzard some time if we keep on upping Icy Wind like we've been doing. And once Seel evolves we'll get Sheer Cold which is great for that. It also helps if we're doing attacks in bad conditions or if they're a long distance away.

>>28356571
Seel is actually pretty damn good.

>>28356579
That'd be a long fight. Our mom has Thick Fat, likely Water/Ice typing, and maybe other stuff meaning Ice attacks are pretty weak against her. But if she's fighting an Ice monster it'll resist her attacks too.
>>
>>28356576
Thanks for running Professor, enjoyed the read.
>>
>>28356561
Good thing we're Modest.

Also let me get this straight.

You made sure we accepted the duel, and when we got a crit fail, got us a sweet deal to use Tenacity to negate it.

All the while planning on having us kill Alexis so Sabrina could go "no YOU'RE the jerk".

I'm glad you changed your mind.
>>
>>28356582
Prof said ice body is go. We love the ice poultices.
>>28354829
>>
>>28356593
those nurses are going to be piiiissed
>>
>>28356592
So should that mean next thread our priorities are
>Fuck get me to a hospital
>She's gonna be a rival/boss/enemy later
>God damn it, stop being a cockhead Grumpy. Don't make us name you Grumples.
>>
>>28356582
Depends.

Is the "I hate you" he gave us at the end just his regular annoyed statement? Or does he REALLY hate us now?

Although I don't think he started hating us, though. I think he just used the word the way a kid would; carelessly and without understanding what it really means to hate someone in earnest. Although that may have changed now.

In any case, we'll see next time.
>>
I just hope goldie doesn't grow to resent us more and more as he grows smarter and smarter.

>>28356605
I think our meeting with goldie is going to be cut short by bleeding concerns.
Sabrina didn't even notice that shit.
>>
>>28356620
We can freeze it until we get back to the hospital.

I'm sure Bruise is ready to carry us around some more.

Anyway, I guess our role in our relationship with him is to keep him grounded. Gotta keep him safe from that psychic superiority complex. Although I'm not sure what approach we should take.

Going from the suggestions given so far (HUGS), I'm afraid we might be too overbearing. The alternative, though, is not being close enough to him. I think, though, what Goldie needs right now from us is some confirmation that we're willing to shoulder through his faults and that our hand will always be extended for him to take.
>>
>>28356637
Honestly, I think all we need to do here is let him know we were worried sick about him. Heck, we almost left the dome thinking he went out there.
Now that I know everyone's fine though, I feel so much better. SO much bette-
And then we pass out.
>>
>>28356637
Basically we begin this by bitchslapping him for disappearing like that on us. Then >>28356648
>>
>>28356648
>>28356652
Yeah. We went through quite a bit for him because we were worried and, after finally meeting up with him, he acts like a jerk. In a situation like this, we need to show him that we didn't look for him so that we could gain the pleasure of his gratitude at our worry. We did it because he's our friend and knowing that he's alright is all that we need.

I wonder if we could speak to him privately? Sabrina may be a psychic, so she'd hear our thoughts anyway, but maybe if we ask her to, she'd respect our privacy?
>>
Ugh, you guys, we don't bleed out anymore. We can freeze our wounds. An organ would have to be impaired or vital blood vessel disconnected.

>>28356637
Yeah, I don't hug is always the answer. I'm worried he thinks we are making him weak and unstable. Sabrina's teachings seem to be about utter control, and yet when he was alone with us he broke down crying.

Ceru is more and more showing herself to be hugterminator.
>>
>>28356663
ahahaha
>>
Does anyone else feel like Ceru is...I dunno...
bottling up shit?

Like, think about it. Anytime someone is mean to us, we just laugh and hug it out or whatever, but never say much about it.
I think we know where the evil came from
>>
>>28356672
I think she's blubbering an appropriate amount to not be considered bottling things up.
>>
>>28356661
Ceru used GIRLS ARE CONFUSING
It's super effective!
>>
>>28356672
>>28356684
That seems like it would reveal itself in the Evil type's more bestial side. Right now, we're leaning towards the cold and collected aspect of it. Although I guess THAT could represent how we repress our greater fears and stresses (as is obvious in the times where Cerulean chants to herself, saying that she needs to be like the ice). Cold and reflecting nothing through the frost. How fitting.
>>
I want to know what Bruise will think the next time he sees us.

>finally, I was abo-..wtf?
>got in a fight, won said fight, long story
>I'm officially scared of you now
>shut up and carry me back to the hospital
>>
>>28356694
I fully expect all of our wounds to explode into critical condition the instant we get off the find-comrade adrenaline rush.
Which will happen right around the time we get back to bruise, if my timing is right.
>>
>>28356658
When we interact with Goldie next time, I think it's important that we not baby him. He decided on his own to approach his mom for training. I assume this was because he was afraid that he wouldn't be able to measure up to the Rockets training regime.
>>
>>28356694
>Scared of us
>Not Machop High fiving us and shattering 18 bones
>>
>>28356706
I have a feeling ceru is going to be in the pokehospital for a long while. Thank goodness for rest.
>>28356704
yeah, I'm fine with him going back to his gym and getting training, we were just worried he got, I don't know, kidnapped by vengeful psychics, or stolen by burrowing dugtrio, or any other kind of horrible thing that can happen to make a person dissapear suddenly without so much as a note.

Man. We really filled up the two threads this session pretty quickly. Seems like more and more people are joining in. I can barely recognize the mannerisms other anons now.
