shit, an early session or something.I'm not complaining.Lilac's already agreed to talk to giovanni about this, yes?
>>30002131It's evolution time! And chatting with Boss about Lilac, it's our best shot.
>>30002303Oh, shit, I was looking at it wrong. Haha.Nvm
>>30002131>>30002227We'll get there soon enough.Can anybody add in some cute cat eyes and, you know, legs? Wasn't too confident about trying either of those.Are we guys cool with me forgetting the ghost type thing?
>>30002323something about how the cable loop in front of Giratina's face looks like a penis.really stretching it imo
>The Wanted Lilac
>>30002379That rocket tie is really damn cute.Writing next update, reading real quick to catch up on what we were doing last.
>>30002379the heck is up with the head?did we like become a bird?
>>30002379>The mask thingAh, so that's the Froslass thingie?Eh. I'd be fine with losing it. I like the arms so far though. And the torso and hair look good.
>>30002423He added the Froslass head. Although I think it was supposed to be some sort of skin hoodie?
>>30002405Nevah.I will fight you forever, /u/
>>30002438>>30002379well, I was never for frosslass, and I'm still again' it.
>>30002303Wait a second! Is this what I think it is?Dranule=Ygg? With a hasty OH SHIT delete to try to hide it?This would mean that ygg is black. Neat.
>>30002423I think he put in the Froslass graft (we want it but we don't got it IIRC)he's jumping the gun, but it is on our to do list...
>>30002455>Ygg is blackHa. I could see it.
>>30002472Dranule is black. If Ygg is Dranule, then Ygg is black.
>>30002481Yeah, that's what I was sayin'.I dunno who the heck Dranule is anyway, nor do I really care.
>>30002413For some reason, the mention of the ponytail really stuck to me. Unfortunately, the skin mask of Froslass doesn't have a back, so it's more like a mask that can't be removed.>>30002438>>30002456>>30002450>>30002432Yeah, I added it. I thought that almost everyone wanted it, though.Me being unable to draw faces TOTALLY has nothing to do with deciding to add it.
>>30002502Runs the Overhuman Quests. They're fun.I'd just think it's interesting if they're the same person.
>>30002521Don't feel bad drawanon, faces are one of the hardest parts of drawing, as I understand it.That and like, feet and muscles.Anyway. Looks good, keep working on it.>>30002530Oh, really? If that's true then dang, Ygg's a machine.
>>30002521I don't want it. Ghosts are spooky, and I don't want to interact with them without a lilac-esque intermediary between us and them.G-g-g-ghosts.
JUSTICE FOR LILAC!and muscle girl for Ygg
>>30002455Probably not, writing styles are different and they've both been around for a while doing separate things, I think they may have overlapped before as well, but I'm not entirely sure of that.>>30002502Currently running Over(Human) Limit Quest, we've ended up playing a magical terrorist cultist.
>>30002551I really only did this to visualize what evolution would do to the Crytten bits. Honestly? This is going to hurt like a bitch. I forgot if it always had 2 tips, but if it doesn't, her tail will SPLIT IN TWO over the course of a week. It'll also become significantly bonier and more rigid as a transition to the plate tail of Barioth......damn, I need to finish this drawing now, don't I? I suppose it stopped being a doodle by the 2nd time I redrew it and started colouring it in...
>>30002642How do people know he's black?Did it just...Come up?
>>30002552>Thinking she'll always be able to protect us.It's almost like you want our soul to be eaten by a Gengar.
>>30002697The terrorist organization in his quest was all black because they started in Africa. Someone jokingly accused him of racism and I think he jokinly responded that he must be self hating or something.
>>30002684If it helps, I'm pretty sure our evolution is Remoraid. Lowest XP value needed to evolve. It might be like one guy said and the expanding arms is causing spikes to poke through our skin.But uh, then again Crytten is a OP, so I dunno if it has a lower evo range.We'll see in the end, though.>FinishPlease do. Looks good, and I find the ponytail really adorable.
>>30002552On the other hand, Cerulean becoming partial medium would certainly open negotiations for future medium rangers.
>>30002697Yeah it just came up at one point.
>>30002733oooh.Neat. Thanks anon
>>30002742It was ice spikes.So it's either Seel or Crytten, I would think.
>>30002742I don't mind, but I seriously don't know how to do legs. Or eyes. Or any of the gear a rocket is supposed to have.Hell, what kind of legs are feline-human legs, anyway?
>>30002781Ice spikes? It was just spikes.
>>30002761>5 decades of heavy drinking>Near fatal battles to the face>And hit with a time machineCurious now. Do Rangers have a higher natural life span based on the pokemon they implant? Like, bug rangers have their life span reduced (naturally, that is) and like, rock pokemon have their life increased to near infinity?
>>30002742Crytten is making spikes poke through our skin.Remoraid omniguns are probably expanding or some shit.I never figured out where the hell those omniguns were placed. I originally imagined them as being over or under her arms or something, but are they actually INSIDE the palm of her hand? I'm pretty sure that'd fuck with bones and finger control, but then again, POKESCIENCE.
>>30002379>Long hairPretty sure Ceru was described as having short hair.
>>30002789You learn by practice, right?Anyway, I imagine her legs are still relatively human. Her claws are what allow her to move faster on all fours, I imagine.
>>30002830They're in her forearms.
>>30002830they're inside the palm/forearms.shit's gonna hurt.
>>30002830It's inside the arm, most likely it's own little 'bladder' of some sort leading right under the bone itself. Would make sense in my head anyway.
>>30002781>>30002811I think you mean Cartillage spikes. They start out white, but eventually darken as well as harden.>>30002837Shush, she's older and it looks better.>>30002859So I got them right? That's a relief.
>>30002781Cartilage spikes, there are three possibilities, either Remoraid is evolving and thus the expanding Omniguns are pushing the spikes out of our arm, Crytten is evolving and they're coming out naturally, or both are evolving and we're in for a painful week.
You stash away Lilac's robes after helping her change, it seems that they're the sort of thing that takes a second person to get in and our of. She said that Rebecca, that older medium from when you first met her, is the one that assists all the others with things like that.After getting rid of lilac's smell with the Blushing Orchid perfume, you're relieved that it's pretty much all covered up, though you reckon to a sleuth like Devon, it wouldn't matter much.You tear up a little bit from all the spray though. Not bad enough to throw up at least."Lilac, alright Lilac..." You look your friend over, she hardly looks a thing like her usual self. Blonde hair, blue eyes. dark skin, and an elegant black suitskirt that she itches at uncomfortably."We've got to.. Um.., " You worry to yourself. Alright, she's disguised, scent's covered... What's next. What do you need to do next?Tell boss? That seems like the most likely, but then you'd need to tell him that you're harboring a runaway. Then you'd also need to tell him you had her do something that she wasn't supposed to- not that he'd really care about that because he's boss and boss is above most laws but...You frazzle your hair freaking out as Lilac just kind of watches you, chuckling to herself."What's so funny?"Lilac waves it off,"Nothing, it's just fun seeing you like this." She pulls her legs into her body, a warm smile from her seamless mask. She still holds the sword near, unwilling to let it leave her person...Ughhh, what first?> Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everything.> Report to boss alone.> Go to the Research Bureau alone(or with Lilac)> Stay at your dorm, lay low from the civvies.> (Other)
>>30002893>> Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everything.
>>30002893>[x] Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everything.Boss will understand
>>30002893>Report to boss with LilacDon't leave her alone, that's a bad move I think.Also, uh, I hope that sword has a sheath or can go transparent or something, because that draws more attention then her eyes ever will.
>>30002893see if she's okay with going to the boss.If not, sit here and be frazzled for a while while we think of other ideas.
>>30002893> Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everything.Get her a bag of some sort to hold the sword, I don't think it should be on public display. She can keep it close, maybe even keep one of her arms in the bag to hold it, but not out in the open.We can trust Boss, and he really would want a Medium Ranger for the expeditions.Also, before we go anywhere, we should tell Lilac that we're evolving, and it might hurt us some so she shouldn't worry too much if we're in pain.
>>30002953>SwordYeah... Should we get a paper thing to wrap it in or something?
>>30002893> Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everything.Try to make sure the sword doesn't give everything away. Does it mind being bundled up or something?
>>30002979>we should tell Lilac that we're evolvingCeru doesn't know that in character. She just know's something's up and she wants to go see a doctor soon.
>>30002455Considering that Dranule is running a quest right now, I think it just means that he's following AoPH. NEGLECTING YOUR QMing DUTIES SO YOU CAN HAVE FUN IN SOMEONE ELSE'S QUESTS? OH MY.
>>30002871Alright, that makes good sense to me.I've also always imagined Pokemon water bladders to store extreme amounts of water; like a sponge, except far more advanced.>>30002893>Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everythingAlso, can we just shoot 'anything' out of the so-called omniguns? I heard we could use Bullet Seed, but does it actually involve loading seeds? Can we pre-load tiny metal balls and fire actual, water-powered shotgun blasts?
>>30002893>[x] Report to boss with Lilac, he needs to know everything.get this over with before it falls down hard on our ass
>>30002998He ran the quest last night and it didn't hit autosage because it only has 3 or 4 posters max and his updates are slow (but pretty long).It's not actually running now.
>>30002998But he's not running anything right now. The thread is still alive from last night, and we're chatting a bit about stuff, but it's not running.
>>30003029>>30003041Then all is well, then.
>>30003011Remember, we have an Omnigun in our throat, too.So, say Ceru eats some Watermelon.Suddenly, she's a god damn machine gun.
>>30003057Actually, that would be a good way to learn Bullet Seed.Where is the nearest watermelon eating competition?
>>30003057nobody can compete with ceru's seedspitting power on watermelon day.we all mourn the loss of brave trooper smitty who was gored by a rhydon claiming these melons
>>30003057This is just like motherfucking Yoshi's Island.Let's load up some Eggsecutes or implant a Chansey and go full-on fucking Yoshi.
>>30003057>Ceru learned Bullet Seed!
>>30003079Fruits n' junk are pretty rare, as I understand it becau->>30003082well yeah, that.
>>30003011>I heard we could use Bullet Seed, but does it actually involve loading seeds? Can we pre-load tiny metal balls and fire actual, water-powered shotgun blasts?I like it.>>30003079Sounds like fun>>30003082....This is now canon. RIP Smitty.
>>30003114Neat.I like that we don't need XP to learn moves, just ingenuity.
>>30003088>implant a Chansey>get even fatterno, just no.
>>30003114>Metal ballsThat sounds like just straight up bullet. Without the seed part.So Steel type instead of Grass?
>>30003146Pretty sure we DO need exp to effectively stuff and fire metal balls in our mouth without choking/misfiring.
>>30003114Fuck. RIP Smitty.Seriously though let's load up some goddamn birdshot and kill entire swarms of Spearow. We can have a little bag full of various grenades and bombs and packets of metal balls and fuck things up. We FPS now.Stun Spore gas grenades when?
>>30003114Hey Prof, will you be updating the character pastebin after we've gotten a chance to train?
>>30003185>Pretty sure we DO need exp to effectively stuff and fire metal balls in our mouth without choking/misfiring.Yeah, I know to be EFFECTIVE at it. I mean to use them period is all.
>>30003188I am uncomfortable with the prospect of deepthroating grenades instead of just throwing them.
>>30003159Heh."Chansey"This monster is so hell-bent on its own extinction that it feeds other creatures their eggs with such ambition that it can only be concluded that it receives some kind of sick masochistic thrill.Needless to say, there are exceptionally few of these monstrosities among monsters still alive today.
>>30003418so chansey graft makes you a fat pink chronic masturbater with a guro fetish?
You stare at the sword for a moment before you start shuffling through your wardrobe, and bring out a dress recently ruined to hand to her."Here, cover him up with this. We can't let people see you carrying him."Lilac blinks at the ruined cyan dress, blinking at it once,"Oh, ohh, right. So we're going somewhere Ceru?"You run over to look in your mirror, smoothing out your fur a bit,"Yeah, we're going to boss. We need to keep that covered at least. People pay attention around here..."You turn to look at her, eyeing her a bit suspiciously."How did you get in here anyway? I didn't see you when I was in my room, and then you were just- there!"Lilac chuckles again,"I walked through the wall.""Oh, okay then." You get back to brushing your hair until it finally sinks in."You what?!" You scream, looking at the walls and then to Lilac,"What are you talking about people don't just walk through-"Lilac grabs your pillow, her other hand taking on a sudden case of semi-transparency as she slips it right through the pillow. Your jaw hangs at the end of its hinge."It's how I get out of the Spire." "Eh, how.. When did you. I didn't know you could do that!"Lilac shrugs,"Well, you didn't really ask." She brings a fingertip to her false lips as she leans forward, her blue contacts catching light,"So. what's your boss like again? You told me a lot about him before..."The walk to boss's office is disarmed by your own tales of boss. How he's always cool, always in control and always gives you a pat on the head when you do a really good job. Kitty likes him too, though, so it's best to watch out when Kitty's around....Outside of Boss's office, the Secretary eyes you,"Oh, hello Cerulean, here to see Leader Giovanni?""Yes Ma'am, I am."She doesn't really seem to give any mind to Lilac, that's weird... Better not draw attention to her though.
>>30003418Have they considered that those are unfertilized eggs? Maybe it evolved pooping eggs all the time so that it can just offer carnivores the eggs so those get eaten instead of it.Whatever floats your grimdark boat, I guess.
>>30003418I always thought they stole other Pokemon's eggs and cooked them, then they feed them to other unsuspecting pokemon to get off to their fetishes
>>30003710It's a joke my friend and I had about the thing. All of its entries talk about how it feeds other things its highly nutritious eggs and pretty much just enjoys doing it.
>>30003693>Lilac chuckles again,"I walked through the wall."I REALLY WANT A FROSLASS NOW
>>30003740They also lay eggs everyday.
>>30003837>>30003748I still don't.we're already frankenstein enough
After about ten minutes, a woman slips out of Boss's office looking an awful lot like Ms Seraphis, buttoning up her top. She's in such a rush that she barely notices you, or at least prefers not to.She smells like boss, she must like him a lot.You enter Boss's office, apprehension gripping at your sides even now as you're face to face with him, despite his usual stern, yet kind glare."Yes Cerulean? What did you want to see me about?""I... Umm... Well, my friend and I were wondering.." You gesture to Lilac, causing boss to raise an eyebrow."W-well, I was wondering i-if you could help her out..."Boss's brow furrows a bit in his own confusion as he looks at you... only you.You slowly turn around, and you feel the cold blood draining out from your face as you realize very quickly that Lilac is...Gone.> Don't panic...> Panic.> Panic a lot.> Panic a lot and run outside.
>>30003882>> Don't panic..."LILAC STOP BEING SPOOKY DAMNIT"
>>30003882>[X] Don't panic...>[X] Panic.G-g-g-GHOOOOSTS
>>30003882>[x] Don't panic...She's here somewhere...
>>30003882> Don't panic...She can walk through walls, and probably do all sorts of other weird ghost stuff like disappearing."You can come out, you don't have to hide. Boss might look scary, but he's a really kind man. He'll help us."
>>30003882"DAMNIT LILAC, I'M TRYING TO HELP YOU HERE"
>>30003882>> Panic a lot and run outside.Do it, maximize the cute
>>30003882> Don't panic...> Panic.UhLilacLilac where did you go arceus
>>30003882Ha, I knew that Giovanni was totally fucking Seraphis, that man among men.
>>30003882>a woman slips out of Boss's office looking an awful lot like Ms Seraphis, buttoning up her topThis is why you're the fucking boss, Giovanni.>Don't panic
>>30003984>>30003982>>30003882>our entire mission was, at its core, designed to be a booty call for giovanni
>>30003982I am glad someone realized this.Bout time. She looked like she needed a good dicking.
>>30003982>>30003984>>30004002>>30004023I wonder if he does any of the elite rangers too, especially Kitty.
>>30004088Do you really wonder?
>>30003882See if we can smell her. We know exactly what perfume she's wearing, she can't be that hard to locate with our nose.
>>30004088Naw, I bet he likes a challenge. Kitty or other rockets would be too easy.
>>30003882This >>30004166Then if we can't smell her, ask her to come out, and if that doesn't work then we can panic.
You maintain calm, flexing the part of you that's steeped firmly in reason, presence of mind, logic and... And..."W-where'd you go? Liiiiilac?" You flush blue underneath your fur with sheer embarrassment as you're in front of boss and talking to the air, giggling nervously to try to dispel the situation."Cerulean?""Yes Boss?"A shaky smile on your part."You're asking for Lilac?""Yes Boss." Your eye twitches."The Medium you referenced?""Yes Boss..." You lower your head."Now she's missing, and out of the spire.""Yes Boss."Giovanni lets out a drawn out sigh, before resuming a rather contented sigh. He seems to be in an awfully good mood at least."Well, this will likely be trouble... But it could also work out in the end. Do what you need to, and find her. She ran away, correct?"You nod,"Yessir, without Lady Agatha's knowledge.""What does she expect to do?""That's a promise between friends sir. I'll have her tell you herself. She'd still love to be a ranger though."Boss smiles at that,"Good, get started then."You step out of the room just about ready to scream as you take a deep whiff of the air. Not anywhere near the office. Uhhh, Arceus!You retrace your steps to where you last pick up her scent in the hallways. Following it, you find yourself in front of Bruise's dorm, and you blanch.Who knows what horrors she must be set to inflict upon Bruise in his own room...> Knock. > Open the door.> Call out Lilac.> (Other)
>>30003882well, uh, sir, I had a friend here and was going to talk to you about her problems, but she apparently, uh, ran away. Without me noticing. That's one of her abilities, sort of. I need to go, uh, find her and double check that she's actually okay with seeing you, since I thought she was and apparently she's not!
>>30004302[x]knockAfter there's no response,[x]open the door all slow like in a horror movie
>>30003858there can never be enough frankenstienWE SHALL BE CERU OHARCEUSWHATTHEFUUCKISTHAT
>>30004302>> Knock. >> Call out Lilac.
>>30004302>knockAlso>Lilac tells us she can phase through walls>We freak out>She laughs and says she likes seeing us that wayHot dang, Medium implants give you a delight for frightening people.
>>30003882[x] Don't panic
>>30004414>Hot dang, Medium implants give you a delight for frightening people.No implants for her. Just Lilac. She lives vicariously through other people's traumas.
>>30004414If we get frosslasno can hide from our hugs
>>30004465I should've said having the 'ghost type' gives you that, my bad.Human mediums are ghost type humans I figure yeah?
>>30004483It's just Lilac. She's a weirdo even compared to the other mediums.
>>30004483Ghost type isn't even the same sort of thing as pokemon types in thisIt is like a thing that marks your soul regardless of whether you are a ranger or notSort of like psychics I guess only creepier
>>30004469>someone leans up against a wall>arms slowly slide out of the wall and latch on>disembodied voice whispers "hugs"
>>30004576I have an idea. We do this to devonone of three thing will happen1: Devon shrieks like a little girl2:We accidentally do it as he gets ready to shower3: limited time offer, deep fried Ceru arms (most likley)
>>30004663Considering Dark resists and is SE against ghost, dat paranoia must help when the shadows really are out to get you.
>>30004695"Dear diary, I think I am going crazy, I keep hearing that fat bitch's giggling and feel a slight chill where ever I go. is she finally going to try to take me out?! I WON'T GO OUT WITHOUT A FIGHT. XOXO Devon"
>>30004483Ghost-type humans are also known as Yamask.
>>30004766and all yamasks are muh niggers
With no small amount of trepidation, you knock... Once, twice, three times.No answer.S turn of the knob reveals that it's open, unlocked.Peering inside, you see that Bruise's room is actually surprisingly clean, cleaner than yours as least... And there's no one inside. Not a Bruise or a lilac.You sniff around, following the scent where it must've gone...The bed, it's all over there. She must've rolled around in it or something. The covers appear undisturbed, or at the very least fixed.Next stop leads to his laundry chute. The hamper just outside bears some of the Blushing Orchids scent. Odd, but okay...The next trail ends at the wall, next room over.. Is Goldie's.You slip outside, and knock on that door as well. You hear a sudden "Shhh!" from within that causes your ears to perk up, and your eyes to narrow. "Ah-hah!"You throw the door open, and see Alexis and Goldenrod sitting on the floor with a set of cards and a bunch of spoons in a few piles between the two of them. Goldenrod had a nervous look until a moment ago, as he stares at you with bewilderment at your sudden intrusion."Cerulean?! What are you doing?!"(Goldenrod is mine.) Alexis stares at you, her expression unphased by the intrusion.you gently scratch at your head," Oh, I was just, uhhh.. Heh heh..."> "What are you two doing?"> "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?"> "Sorry for the intrusion!" Slam! Where next?> (Other)
>>30004895Looks like Goldie is about to become aman
>>30004895>> "What are you two doing?"Is he spooning her? Is this like pick-up-sticks but with spoons? Are they gambling spoons?!FUCK
>>30004895At least we didn't walk in on them spooning.
>>30004895"Alexis that's really not what I came here for."> "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?""She's, like, really really sneaky.""If you see her, don't knock her out or anything. Just tell me."
>>30004895[x]otherYou are not the rangers I am looking for.Gentle, gentle closing of the door.
>>30004895"You guys are keeping secret that you're capable of having fun? Why?"
>>30004895>[x] "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?">[x] "Sorry for the intrusion!" Slam! Where next?(Goldenrod is mine.) Alexis stares at you,is that her catchphrase or something?
>>30004895>[x] "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?"
>>30004895"My, my. The two of you are capable of having fun. How scandalous."> "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?""She's pretty quiet, you might not have even noticed her. If you see her just let me know."Walk into the room, give it a few sniffs, try to find the Orchid scent. "And why are there so many spoons?"Then leave.
>>30004895>[x] "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?">[x] "Wait, are you guys keeping it a secret that you know how to have fun? Is that a card game that wages spoons? Is that an Esper thing?"
>>30004895>> "Did you happen to see a girl with dark skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes go through here?"
We should head towards Devon's room and just wait for Lilac to show up.Since he's the one who could fuck her shit up.
>>30004967>"Alexis that's really not what I came here for."Put it in ( ) instead of " " and ok.
>>30005157nah, make her have to address her poor social graces, if Goldie even cares what we were talking about.
How old is Lilac again? It feels like we're dealing with a toddler that just wandered off...
>>30005471I think she is 16 now.
>>30005471To be fair, she has lived in a spooky tower forever.
"Alexis, that's not what I came here for..." You blurt out loud, causing Goldie to raise an eyebrow." H-huh?!"Alexis snaps forward at him,"Two pair, President and Leader with a two of fire. I raise."Goldie throws his cards in the air,"Agh! Fold!""Err... What are you two doing?"Alexis seems pleased with herself, though her lips don't even break out into a smile,"Training. Esper Poker. You need to keep a straight face, and block your mind or else your enemy can read you." She moves a finger and the pile of spoons moves to her side.You note that Goldie's is quite small."Yeah, that's what we're doing. What do you want Ceru?" Goldie grouches as they shuffle the deck for a new dealing. "I was just, looking for a girl with dark skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair, iiiif you see her, don't knock her out or anything, just let me know, okay?"Goldie deals,"Yeah, haven't seen anyone like that, can you leave us alone already? You're distracting me-"He looks at his hand."Left to right, Ace of Water, Three of Lightning, Ranger of Lightning, Leader of Water, and Ace of Wood." Alexis speaks flatly, and Goldie throws his cards down giving up again and throwing you a stare like daggers."Can you leave already?!"You sniff at the air for a moment. She must be in the next room. You slowly shut the door,"Ooookayyyyy..."Esper stuff. Sometimes you feel left out when those two get along. Oh well. It's not like you can challenge them to holding their breaths underwater, or seeing how long they can sit in cold water, or swimming races...You sigh, you'll need to hang out with Marine once she's got some time.Let's see.. If the scent goes to the next door, then that's...Mable.You knock on her door,"Who is it?"You hear at the first knock."Cerulean, is anyone in there with you?""Negative Ceru, you're welcome to come in if you'd like though.""Ahhh, thanks, I'll-"You hear a scream from down the hall, and your body's moving before you can even think.It's.. Devon's room!
>>30005549WHAT DID I JUST SAY.
>>30005549Ok, no one panic
>>30005549Well, that went as poorly as possible as quickly as possible.
>>30005549>You hear a scream from down the hall, and your body's moving before you can even think.>>It's.. Devon's room!inb4 it's just his nerd hobbyspooky books
>>30005600"Devon screams like a girl?"
>>30005614We find him hugging a body pillow of Giovanni(standard issue for all rockets) as Lilac cackles in the corner
>>30005549is it a scream of pain, fear, or pleasure?can you imagine it if Devon and Lilac hit it off?
>>30005549Now to find out if Devon is afraid of ghosts
>>30005717Considering the type vulnerabilities, pretty sure ghosts are afraid of Devon.Evil is bad for souls.
You throw the door open, and see Devon absolutely losing his shit as he's stuck upon a levitating bed, cast in spooky blue fires. A disembodied voice laughs as his scream turns into a throaty growl with your entry."Ceru! I knew it was you! You're finally gonna off me huh?! And you got those espers in on it too!? I swear I'll tear you to shreds, I'll-"A lamp flies across the room, smashing him in the face, to send him sprawling back.His window fogs over, and a a drippy scary face is quickly drawn upon it upside down so that he sees it."Bwahhh! They're comin' for me man, the people that I killed, I swear, It's not my fault, it wasn't me man!"Devon tears off of the bed, thrashing, and pushes you out of the way and onto your tush as he runs down the hallways like a zubat out of reverse.You can't help but release a stream of unrestrained laughter at seeing Devon react like that, even if you do feel a little bit sorry.The furniture all comes down, and Lilac melds back into existence snickering like a mischievous child."Oh, Oh yes, I like that one, I like that one a lot. He screamed like craaazy. Did you see that expression Ceru?! Omiarcues, that was adorable." With a sword in one hand her other slowly works its way up to her face as she blushes heavily beneath that faux-skin.> "I'm just glad I found you..."> "You should do that more. A lot more."> "I was worried about you Lilac! Come on, let's go see Giovanni!"> (Other)
>>30005549ONWARD TO THE FIRE PUPPY! DIFFUSE THE SITUATION WITH OPERATION STEAM HUG
>>30005779>> "I'm just glad I found you...">> "I was worried about you Lilac! Come on, let's go see Giovanni!"\can not leave this girl alone... even if it was amusing....
>>30005779[X] "I was worried about you Lilac! Come on, let's go see Giovanni!"
>>30005779>I'm just glad I found you...>I was worried about you Lilac! Come on, let's go see Giovanni!>...don't go running off this time.
>>30005779>>[x] "I'm just glad I found you...">> "You should do that more. A lot more."I want to say this, but there's the risk of Devon burning her and that would suck nuts.>>[x] "I was worried about you Lilac! Come on, let's go see Giovanni!"
>>30005779Devon feels the weight of those he's killed? Whaaaaaat?He's a fuckin' human being under all that dick? Don't listen to the voices Devon.
>>30005779> "I'm just glad I found you...""Don't just run off like that, I was worried something happened Lilac. And you should be careful about messing with Devon, if he accidentally burned you it would really hurt, and it wouldn't get better naturally. Though it was really funny.Now come on, we should go see Boss."Hold her hand so she doesn't just run off again, and bring her with us to Giovanni.
>>30005779"You probably shouldn't do that too often. He lights his problems on fire."
>>30005861We will later comfort him with a hug, mend his pain and help him maintain his humanity in the face of his implant. He's a bad boy and a rebel but we can change him.
>>30005779So...devon is afraid of ghosts
>>30005779"Now I need to get him a replacement lamp."
>>30005881Huh, Lilac needs to learn discipline if she's gonna be a ranger.
>>30005907He's a regular Scooby Doom.
>>30005881This. Especially emphasize that it was funny as fuck, but Devon's a dick and will probably burn her if she does it again. And that's a shame, because I really wanted to see that happen again.
>>30005955a fusion of doctor doom and scooby doo?yes
>>30005977I think it was a play on Devon having Houndoom grafts.
>>30005977Scooby Doo and Houndoom
>>30005992>>30005977>>30005955I like all of these things.and his minions are the Harlem Globetrotters
>>30006031We start doing more mysteries with Ghosts in the field once Lilac becomes a ranger, investigate a ghost cave of some kind, Devon won't go in, not even for a Doomy snack.
>>30005920Yeah that might be a problem in the future.
>>30005955Can we offer him Pokesnacks.
>>30006072>Devon is a poffin chef
>>30006063ok, who's shaggy then?
>>30006178Bruise, he's afraid of ghosts tooand body builders eat a lot
>>30006178They tried grafting a Torchick onto Devons best friend, he rejected the implant and died a fiery death when his fire creating bladder exploded.This is another reason why Devon is so afraid of making friends, because even if they aren't out to get him then he will get attached and they will die.
>>30005779>Ask why she wondered off>I'm just glad I found you>I was worried about you Lilac! Come on, let's go see Giovanni!No need to have her tease Devon again. As fun as it was to see him....lose his cool. I don't think Cerulean is that much of a prankster.
>>30006096That would make sense, I guess.
You calm down from a high of laughter, wiping tears away from your eyes,"Lilac," You gasp for breath,"Oh Lilac, that was great... But.. But... You really shouldn't do that, he might hurt you." You catch your breath finally, and look down the hall after Devon's rounded the corner."We should leave. He tends to set his problems on fire," You grab her by the hand, and pull her on ahead,"Come on, let's go!"===========================You stand in Boss's office, showing off Lilac like some sort of glorious prize as you manage to prove that she's really here, in the flesh and everything."I heard commotion from Devon."You smile, eyes nearly closed as you deign to let this subject pass over,"Yes Boss?""He said something about ghosts.""Yep, he was haunted boss."Giovanni peers at you with a steady look.Lilac raises her hand with a cheeky smile,"I made him wet himself!"A vein sprouts from Giovanni's forehead as he stares at Lilac," You... what?"You crick your neck to look at Lilac, cold sweat pouring out of your fur,"I don't think Lilac said anything, did you Lilac?"Lilac snickers quietly with a hand obscuring her mouth a little bit,"I' meant that I made him scream like a girl.""You did what?" Giovanni stares even harder, veins running through his eyes, going bloodshot."Sorry, sorry." Lilac takes a deep breath,"I made him piss himself, run down the hall like a little girl and now I'm telling his boss about his little girl feelings."You're sweating faucets at this point...Boss breaks out laughing as much as you had earlier. He must be in a really good mood today."Alright, that's something I would've liked to see." Boss calms down after a few moments,"So, you're Lilac, and you want to be a ranger despite what Agatha of the Elite Four has expressly forbidden you to do?"
>>30006600Arceus fuck, you almost gave me a heart attack, Prof.
>>30006600>that entire post
>>30006600I just realised that I care way too much about what Giovanni thinks of Cerulean.Dat indoctrination.
>>30006600>He must be in a really good mood today.I wonder why.hehehe
>>30006651We're eventually going to be given a choice in a situation where the boss's amoral plans are revealed to us, and it becomes a defining paragon or renegade moment...Are we so complete in our belief of the Boss that we don't see that this is wrong and what he is planning will hurt innocent people or will we be a good rocket......it will be a dark thread indeed.
>>30006600Should we mention to Boss that she's wearing a disguise right now?
>>30006687Just think. Maybe, if we worked really hard, that could be Cerulean one day.>>30006701How dare you question Boss Giovanni's wisdom....
>>30006701That is about the time when we nope the fuck outta there and go join our mom innawoods.
>>30006701>Doubting the Boss>At all
>>30006701It might not be right, but it is probably necessary, and I trust the Boss. How dare you doubt him?We're a Rocket, and sometimes being a Rocket means doing unpleasant things for the sake of humanity.
>>30006687>>30006717On that note, I wonder if Cerulean will one day look back on that memory and understand just what it was that she saw...
>>30006701I'd say it depends on whether or not he's really Mewtwo.
>>30006701I can see it now"CERULEAN, I MUST ASK, SHALL I SHOWUP IN MY SPEEDO OR A PAIR OF SWIM TRUNKS"
>>30006723>>30006717>>30006721>>30006701In Cerulaens mind it's gonna come down to Boss vs Mom....i don't know how she would decide
>>30006739It's been confirmed for ditto.
>>30006775No it hasn't.
>>30006785already looking it up, gimme a sec
>>30006775>>30006785We know he exhibited ditto like properties when Cerulean awoke to see him by her bed.I'm still holding on to the theory that Giovanni went through an experiment to artificially copy Mew's abilities. He's the Mewtwo of AoPH.
>>30006785Dittohttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29354452/#p29361693>"The intruder was half-monster, half-human. His father was a monster." You rise from your bedside, taking back your clawed hand from the boss, noticing that his hands took on white pigmentation that quickly vanishes once he's out of contact with you.>taking back your clawed hand from the boss, noticing that his hands took on white pigmentation that quickly vanishes once he's out of contact with you.
>>30006775It's been HEAVILY IMPLIED to be ditto.
>>30006840You get paler in the cold
>>30006840That's a far cry from "DITTO CONFIRMED".
>>30006840Looks like Ditto to me.
Hold on a sec, if the boss is part ditto, does that mean that he could have nearly any other implant and still appear to be totally human?
>>30006866You are dumb.White pigmentation =/= paleDo you know what pigmentation means?Cause i'm pretty sure Prof chose that word especially so that we would notice and not make the mistake that you are making right now.
>>30006889It actually means he doesn't need any other implants, because any implant he has seen (and that's probably all of them) he can recreate them in his own body.If he's a Ditto.Ditto's pretty OP man.
Lilac gives a quick nod," Yep, that's right." Before suddenly becoming reserved as she'd been last night, nervously gripping her wrapped up sword,"I can't stand being in there anymore. I need to get away from there... I really do."You put your hands together,"Pleeeease boss?"Giovanni puts a thumb to his mouth, thinking carefully for a moment,"I see, I see. Very ambitious. And you'd have no qualms about going through the rigorous training that rangers must go through?""No sir, not at all!" Lilac's starting to look hopeful.Giovanni smiles, his eyes glimmering like a demon's,"Well, you're a bit old, but we could still modify you if you're eligible for implants... There is the risk of dying from this. Are you sure of this?"Lilac doesn't seem concerned at all, yet you feel the need to speak up first,"Ah, sir... Why would she require implants? She's strong as she is, right?"Giovanni closes his eyes slowly, setting his hands upon his desk,"As it stands right now, She is under Agatha's jurisdiction due to her powers as a medium. This isn't Johto after all. These are the politics that I must deal with. The loophole is that modified personnel fall under Leader's jurisdiction. Even after discharged from their duties, they would report directly to their Leader if called upon. As it stands, Lilac here is a protegee of an Elite Four member, which as it holds true for the others, do not possess a gym in Kanto. This means that in the case that she becomes a Ranger, she will report to us. One of us.I'm sure Professor Hemlock would be pleased to put her under the knife today."Giovanni squares in on Lilac,"The only question is- will you do it?"> Stop Lilac, she can't go through with it.. she could end up like Chartreuse... Or worse.> It's her choice.> Leave.
>>30006866You don't get pale that quickly, nor would you stop being pale that suddenly. Also, it's not just pale, it's white. Actually white.
>>30006906I don't think it seen, i think it's ouching or in proximity to.
>>30006889>implying he hasn't already copied down everybody he's touched, including Ceru
>>30006914Ok,I understand.he could be that chameleon pokemon
>>30006913>> It's her choice.
>>30006913>>[x] It's her choice.ask her if she's sure about this...
>>30006926Now I am imagining the boss taking on Ceru's form and trying on pretty dresses.>>30006913>> It's her choice.
>>30006913WHAT GRAFT WILL SHE GET!!!!!THIS MATTERS MORE TO US THAN ANYTHING ELSE RIGHT NOW!!!!!!
>>30006913>It's her choice."So not only would it have to be an implant, it'd also have to be one of the eight types regulated by Gym Leaders?"
>>30006913[X] It's her choice.Tell her that it's dangerous, but we can't make this decision for her. Let her know we'll support her whatever decision she makes.
>>30006958Probably something to compliment her best friend.Betting on water type
>>30006958I don't think I've seen a ground type......
>>30006956I want to walk in on that
>>30006940then he would also look like that chameleon pokemon and would only be able to imitate things within eyesight
>>30006913>QuestionHow would Agatha view this? She may be displeased with the Rockets and, while I doubt she would do anything spiteful to the ghosts of dead Rockets moving on to the Spire (at least, I hope not), it may make things....awkward for Rocket members who wish to visit the Spire.
>>30006913> It's her choice.I hope she picks Eevees.
>>30006980doesn't fit her personalityProbably an Eevee though.
>>30006913we don't get to stop her.But do tell her we've seen rangers get very, very ill. Some die.
What if the boss is just a ditto?
>>30006906Ditto has a few weakness like the fact the each move Ditto copies has only 5 pp
>>30006997Consider how her mediums are.
>>30006958Whatever she get, I hope that it will be steel type.Ghost/steel is awesome.>>30007013That would work.
>>30006988Oh god, I just imagine The boss with those weird Chameleon swivel eyes. Yeah, it betterbe ditto, cause it was not a pretty sight
>>30006913>>30006997Also, another question. Not that I want to discourage Lilac from becoming a Rocket, we should ask her what sort of responsibilities Agatha was grooming her for and what may potentially happen to the Dome if she chooses to become a Rocket instead.We've heard stories of how bad the ghosts used to be before Agatha came around, after all. We don't want to create any unintended consequences.>>30007018And yes, this. We'll want her to be informed of the risks.
>>30007026>>30007024>>30007013>>30007012OC Ghost Eevee?I really really really really hope so.
>>30007012>>30007013>She picks Eevees>Hangs out with Ceru all day>Suddenly Glaceon>Part of it also evolves into OC ghost evelution Spookeon?
>>30007061.....Pretty please Prof?I want this more than you know.
>>30007061I always wanted a ghost eeveelutionBut sadly I don't think it'll be eevee
>>30007080>>30007061now it's just getting wierd
Lilac should get something with the Prankster ability cuz she a prankster
>>30007023You don't think Giovanni has stamina of gods to make up for it?If he is a ditto, again.Not yet confirmed. But probable.
>>30007024So you're saying she'd react in the same way her mediums do?Yeah...aside from Lilac, the other mediums seem....emotionally dead. To better channel ghosts, I presume. I guess we can expect Agatha to not be vengeful, but she'll certainly want to strike some sort of balance...
>>30007061>>30007080That'd be pointless and weird since she'd still be under Agatha's jurisdiction.C'mon guys, think it through.
>>30007109Prankster with twave/lick, swagger, foul play, substitute (she won't really need it since she can become intangible)That set would be insane.
>>30007147Until it evolved, it'd be normal, which falls under Veridian's jurisdiction.
>>30007146Agatha wants one night in the spire with Giovanni.Bring the lube.
>>30007024Would Lilac be able to continue Agatha's training as well as the ranger training? It seems like Agatha's trying to have her be her successor, and and as much as I'd love having her do missions with us, we really need someone to pick up the slack in case Agatha bites it.
>>30007163>Gets to be a Ranger for about a year>Evolves into Ghost Eevee>BACK TO THE SPIRE WITH THEEWhat the hell would having Eevee parts even give you? It's a normal type...cat...thing.
>>30007163>Viridian>The Boss' jurisdictionEEVEES, GO!
>>30007167next morningGiovanni limps back into the office, unable to sit comfortably
>>30006913Wait, before she makes a decision, maybe we should ask that she be given an opportunity to observe what Ranger training is like? I imagine that life in the Spire may not have given her much of an opportunity to exercise or move around much.
>>30007163wouldn't the fact that it is a physical implant make it ranger jurisdiction?
>>30007201Mumbling to self about "fuckin' ghost tentacles"
>>30007163What would happen if the implants evolved into something that didn't fit into any of the gyms?Back to the spire, or remain with Boss?
>>30007208It's a now or never kinda thing.Either she gets the implant and gets shelter or leaves or goes back to the spire.
>>30007163Viridian is Normal as well as Ground?Huh.
>>30007208This is pretty reasonable.
>>30007230Like a Slyveion/Umbreon?They're both really good combos with Ghost.
>>30007243I really want their to be a Dodrio ranger with the heads mounted on his shoulders.
>>30007200I don't think we should choose. Well unless Professor rolls for her possible implants and she asks us which she should get
>>30007267Sylveon is fucking beastly. With no investment into spec attack, pixilate hyper voice punches holes into anything that isn't steel or fire.And Sylveon just laughs at special attacks. It's bulky as fuck.
>>30007240Where's that implication?Lilac is in disguise for now and, unless ghosts are excellent trackers, she's "invisible" since mediums don't give off any signals like espers.
Stop grasping at straw here guys. If all that's needed is an implant, why do you guys keep insisting on Eevee? That's kinda retarded.
>>30007109>pranksterAhahahaFuck you Sableye.
>>30007230I think they just train with whoever would best suit their style.But Boss.
>>30007310We don't get to choose anyway anon, ha.We're just chattin'
>>30007294I hope Prof just chooses for her based on what she'd pick.We trust him to write the character. I trust him to write her picking the monsterbits she'd pick.Throwing the choice to us would be a huge fucking mess. I want the Eevees, but I'd much rather just let Prof pick it.
>>30007310Just speculating jeeze>>30007304Pretty sure Agatha is gonna track her down.You don't hide from the oldest Elite 4 Member for long. I don't care how spooky you are, she's spookier.
>>30007336Eevees are more likely to result in death.
>>30007353Agatha bursts in just as the surgery is finished
>>30007336ThisI don't think anyone actually thought Prof was gonna let us pick after what happend last implant round.>>30007360Something she is totally okay with.
>>30007353Yeah, I uh, I am honestly surprised a big ass storm cloud hasn't appeared over the entire dome as ghosts pour out of the spire and seek her out by her LIFE ESSENSE
>>30007360No they aren't. Lilac has no other implants. There's no way for it to result in more than 3 types.
>>30007360No they aren't. Unless you already have other implants and them turning into the wrong type will bring you up to 3 types and kill you Eevees are safe, and not hard to find.Ghost doesn't count as a type for this either, typing isn't what might kill her, it's getting cut open and having monster bits put in that will.
>>30007360Only when you get them on top of already existing implants.
>>30007375Yeah we're kinda in time out right now>>30007378it's coming>>30007379He was talking about the volatility of Eevees
>>30007379>>30007375>>30007401>>30007402Eevees are really unstable. There is a reason nobody implants them>>30007415exactly
>>30007360>>30007379>>30007401>>30007402He was referring to the Eevees tendency to be unreliable and fuck up on the operating table.It is much more likely to die from a misevolving Eevee than any other implant.
>>30007415>>30007429I love how there are still people who have no idea how this shit works...
>>30007429But people do implant them. Prof has said as much, they get them as their first implant and however it evolves determines what gym they end up in.
I'll fish you guys for ideas of what Lilac should get. But yeah... You don't get to choose other rangers' implants.
>>30007461Golette.MECHA LILAC GOAnd then Lilac was Ironwoman
>>30007461Figured as much.Probably for the best, mang. Personally, I think her getting a simple water type because she wants to hang out with Ceru would be adorable. But that's just me.
>>30007447Except that's wrong. The surgery itself is no more dangerous than using any other monster.The danger comes from them evolving into something that exceeds the type limit.
Aside, about that whole thing with Lilac being groomed. I'm not sure that Ceru would be the one to bring that up.It's also exceedingly likely that at this stage, Lilac doesn't care.
>>30007494>Aside, about that whole thing with Lilac being groomed.What?
>>3000747the six million dollar Lilac
How much does Lilac know about b-boys?
>>30007451I love how you don't pay attention to what Prof says. He has specifically stated that Eevees are much more dangerous to implant than any other pokemon due to their instability. They also have a much higher chance of failure on the operating table and upon evolving.>>30007452yeah, just not nearly as much as the local amount would dictate. due to danger. He also stated that existing rangers that got them were very closely monitored and influenced to ensure that the evolution progressed properly.
>>30007494Figured as much.Let's get her on that table, I imagine our decision of 'letting her decide' would go like"Lilac, are you su-""HELL YES GET ME OUT OF THAT HELLHOLE OF A SPIRE PLEASE MASTER GIOVANNI"To the table we go!
>>30007494Eh. Then I guess consequences be damned. Let Giovanni deal with the fall out!Also, perhaps something with wings would suit Lilac? In terms of imagery, I mean. I mean. Ghosts. Wings. Angel. I don't know, it'd be something nice.
>>30007490Do you want me to go look it up again?I find myself quoting the archives in every quest i'm in. The Anons ability to pay attention disheartens me.
>>30007519>He has specifically stated that Eevees are much more dangerous to implant than any other pokemon due to their instability. You're ignoring WHY that instability is dangerous. It's the type limit that makes them dangerous. That does not apply to Lilac because she has 0 types that count towards it right now.>They also have a much higher chance of failure on the operating table and upon evolving.No they don't.
>>30007461Fishing for ideas is a bit much even.
>>30007563>>30007541>>30007490This one may take awhile.
>>30007524Followed by a disney esc song
I don't know about you anons.But I am preparing my anus for Professor's nat 1 on Lilac's Surgery roll.How much Tenacity do you think she gets to burn?How much?I'm betting not enough.
>>30007563If they evolve in the middle of an operation the parts will be rejected regardless of typing because you can't implant parts that are evolved.
>>30007630She's got friends on the other side, girl can probably pull through.
>>30007524"Miss Lilac, you're going to have to let go of your sword. We're trying to operate on you.""No!"
You bow your head with a swallow. Now that Giovanni's given Lilac her way out, there's nothing in the world that you might be able to do or say to stop her.Lilac smiles as though she's just been given the greatest thing in the world,"Yes! Yes, yes, yes, yes!" Her entire body trembles with guy as she clutches the sword against her chest, tears welling up in her eyes as she rubs them away.======================================Since you had to go for your own checkup, you sit in the checkup room with Lilac for emotional support, or rather, just to keep her in one place so that she doesn't wander off to look at something else as she's done more than once on the way here. She looks at everything. EVERYTHING."The lights in here sure are bright... Nothing like that dusky old tower." She smiles, extremely pleased with everything that's happened so far.You hold her hand, happy that at the very least, Lilac's finding her happiness. She's always wanted to be free of that tower. Now, one way or the other, she's going to be getting out of it.Things are changing for her, things are really changing.A nurse draws some blood from her, and she actually giggles at the needle, delighting in the prick.You've dealt with needles for a long time yourself. Mom used to bring you in for frequent checkups. A lot of the kids did with families expectant of them to be rangers. You liked the bug-candy that they gave you after they drew blood. And the little colored bandages. They were really cute."We'll return in a few moments for a proper physical. Then Professor Hemlock will be with you to tell you the results of your tests."
Now you play the waiting game... At the very least, Hemlock is a private Professor of the Rockets. He's the one that put Crytten and Remoraid in you. You'd heard afterwards that if it wasn't for him and your will to live, you'd be dead.Surgeries can go wrong. You tremble, gripping Lilac's hand more tightly as you realize that once she goes under, this could be the last time you ever see.Lilac looks to your hand, and then in the eyes, her other hand still firmly gripped around her sword in its semi-transparency. She gives you naive smile. Warm and joyful.She's your friend.. She's been as much your friend as Bruise, and Goldie, maybe better. She's the only girl you've really talked to, and shared secrets with...You could really lose her.>Anything you'd like to say, Ceru?
>>30007861Tell her she better not die, or we won't let her tease Devon anymore!
>>30007861"I know you don't mind death too much. But promise me please. Don't Die. For me? I'd really miss you."
>>30007861>>Anything you'd like to say, Ceru?What do you know of the other side?
>>30007861I think this might be the time for a hug.
>>30007861Whatever happens, I'm your friend to the end
You know, I just realized how good an idea for an implant that spooky ghoster sword would be for her, you know, if it was cool with it too.
>>30007861nah, bruise and goldie are good friends too. Just as good as lilac.>anything you'd like to say?"I'm really worried for you, Lilac. Surgery and training alone are deadly. And who would I go to if you died and I wanted to talk to you?"
>>30007861"No matter...no matter what happens, you know we'll always be friends, right Lilac? Even if it...takes a while for me to see you again.">teary eyed
>>30007915>>30007915..............uh I don't think it's possible
>>30007898I like this one.
>>30007898I like this She doesn't care, but damn it we do. We care a lot! A whole lot!Keep her hanging onto something in this world.
>>30007898And a hug
>>30007918>nah, bruise and goldie are good friends too. Just as good as lilac.Guyfriends vs an actual galfriend.Need someone to girl-talk. You think Sanna and Mable fill that niche? Marine is basically a boy.
>>30007986>Marine is basically a boyShe still counts for girltalk!we'll make her wear dresses!
>>30007994No you idiot, we make Goldie wear dresses for girltalk.
>>30007986>Marine is so tomboy she takes the tom out of boyI really want to hang out with her more. She's really fuckin' cool.
>>30007591I give up, i can't find where Prof talked about Eevees being dangerous, it musta been in one of the QTGs.
>>30007986I know thats how you intend their interaction to be but my shipping goggles registering them as a strong contender to Goldie. Especially since we haven't been naysaying Alexis's claim on him.
>>30008040Cerulean is modest, after all.
>>30008040Lilac x BruiseCeru's gonna die alone.ToBeedrill
>>30008076No, no, no. Bruise x Kitty.
>>30008030Wee need to kick it with both of our old cerulean buddies. Aqua too, i only really like him cause Blue hair and Electricity though.
>>30008076Bruise wants the kit kat
>>30008112obviously we should start going after aqua now that our crushes are being stolen
>>30008112We definitely need to hang out with them before we go off on that trip outside of the dome.
>>30008076Relax anons, we're still way too young for relationships to solidify.If anything, I suspect Alexis' relationship with Goldie to blow up because she's so much like his mom, harsh and overbearing. Least, from what we saw.Or hell, maybe Goldie's into that shit.
>>30008110>>30008113>implying kitty would settle for anything but the boss
>>30008076Lilac x Bruise x KittyGoes well with our Ceru x Goldie x Alexis
>>30008119are we not the manic pixie dream girl of Lilac?
>>30008126Bruise and Lilac are both old enough to hold a stable relationship.
>>30008126Goldie is so into that shit. Remember how he reacted to us laying into him over his training?
>>30008119What crushes? We never had any.
>>30008040>Alexis's claim on himOh reminding me of this moment of them playing esper games, we should totally start a game of psychic-laser tag.>Feint attack prepped"Oh, okay then. If you see anything unusual let me know. and by the way...">Feint Attack + Psybeam to the noggin"TAG YOUR IT!"
>>30008137that would be one fucked up three way
>>30008154He was only acting out because he wanted to be Punished.
>>30008158I'm crushin' pretty hard on goldie over here.a little bit on devon, too, when he's not being a jerk
>>30008153>16 is old enough to know what you want in the opposite sexOkay anon.
>>30008210I know a couple that has been since the 8th grade, we're in college now.As long as they are mature about their relationship then it can work out fine. Espicially since this job forces you to grow up fast.
>>30008284>been dating>especially I'm an idiot.
>>30008284Well the big problem with the current relationships we're seeing is that the participants aren't all that mature. Except for maybe Ceru and she is kinda oblivious to romance at this stage so far.
>>30008324Alexis is mature
>>30008352not really. She is emotionally reserved, but still very immature.
>>30008205He's just got that bad boy charm all the teenage girls fall over.....
>>30008126Goldie is totally into that shit.
"Lilac... What do you know.. of the other side?" You whisper, your voice barely more than a breath.Lilac gives a pause, as she lays her sword upon her lap, thinking it over some with a finger to her lips."Well, the other side is ruled by a god called Giratina. Not many people talk about him, but Agatha knows of him.""What's he like?""Well..." Lilac looks to you with her eyes wide and a mischievous smile breaching upon her face."He's an enormous dragon! And all the ghosts that gather in his realm of the reverse are sent back to this realm of Arceus once he's done with them.""Well, what's he do with them?"Lilac things about that for a moment,"That's actually a good question. I guess he just keeps track of them and watch over this world from his. The real name of the reverse, is the distortion. Agatha never really liked talking about him, other than the fact that he's a legendary monster."A chill runs down your spine at that. Legendary monsters... They're so powerful that normal tactics and rangers don't even have a dream against them. They defy all logic and reason, natural dusasters they're called- but."A god that's a monster? That's stupid Lilac, why would a god be a monster? Arceus wouldn't let that happen."Lilac shrugs,"Maybe Arceus is really a monster too." She smiles to herself, looking up at the white lights of the doctor's office, kicking her legs out.you frown at that,"Arceus isn't a monster, it's a great god that saved us from the monsters...""That's what the ones in the cathedral say. Agatha knows the truth."You frown. Holding your words. Arceus can't be a monster. Arceus is a god... If Arceus is a monster too then... What hope do people have?
>>30008439>Implying Goldie has eyes for anyone other than SabrinaUntil she acknowledges his as her successor, Goldie won't be able to have a stable relationship with a female.
>>30008499>If Arceus is a monster too then... What hope do people have?he'd make a reverse of a graft...
>>30008499FINAL BOSS, ARCEUSalso, remember that guy said how his group ran a game set in this universe with one of the pokemon rpgs, I envy him greatly
>>30008499>Next on the list, Kanto Religious Crisis
>>30008499It's not like all monsters are automatically hostile.I mean Venonats don't inherently hate humans, nor do Pidgey and so on.
Hemlock comes in to give Lilac her physical. Despite the fact that she's made to strip for the full checkup, Lilac doesn't seem to mind, and asks for you to stay. You blush heavily at seeing her undress, but you helped her with that robe of hers before, so it must be okay.After another period of waiting for the results, Hemlock returns."Your results are about what I had expected of a resident of the spire... Your reflexes are decent, though could definitely use work, your pulse is low, almost deathly, and you show vitamin D deficiency due to the lack of sunlight."Lilac just kind of stares on awkwardly, nodding as though she understands everything, as the doctor rattles off a bunch of other nonsense, until he seems about done."So, when can I get a graft?"Hemlock adjusts his spectacles, a grim look upon his face,"I'm afraid you don't have quite the physical condition for your survival rate to be very high. Your age will also make it quite difficult. However..." He glances back at the results of the tests."Your M-Virus count is exceptional. If you do survive, you will adapt very well to whatever grafts you obtain. It is likely that you will be as well off as your friend Cerulean here." Hemlock gestures to you, and you shy away just a little bit."Your M-Virus count very nearly rivals that of an Elite Four's child. It is very impressive. Likely a side-effect of the development of your spiritual abilities."> Wait, what?> "Let them an carry on speaking.
>>30008669>We have something called the M-Virus? Why didn't we know about this when we took the operation?
>>30008669> Wait, what?Worldbuilding!
>>30008669Nod dumbly like we understand.Rude to interrupt, even if I am curious.
>>30008669What the hell's an M-Virus?
>>30008669> "Let them an carry on speaking.We can ask one of the nurses or something later.
>>30008669damn you midichlorians
>>30008669For some reason this reminds me of how midichloreans fucked up the lore of the star wars universe.
Hmm, I think I want Ceru to be curious about how this all works so:>>30008669> Wait, what?
this mother fucker?
>>30008742Actually, it's only because of Lilac's physical condition that she has a low survival rating.The M-Virus was probably inspired by the new Pokemon game's version of the pokerus.
>>30008770I know that this is a thing, but i forgot which thing it is, so please explain.
>>30008770The Prof finally makes good on his threats....
>>30008669> Wait, what?"What's an M-Virus? Nobody told me about them before."
>>30008799http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/%27M_%2800%29get 128 of whatever your 6th item is
>>30008669We should ask if it's possible for her to get like the most basic graft possible for now, until her health improves.
>>30008840I wanted her to get a Pidgey too, but I think it's a matter of her age and physical build that's the matter.>>30008853Prof was taking possible suggestions.
>>30008669so vitamin supplements, a bit of coffee, and ohgodthisistotallynotsafe?I think Ceru is too scared for Lilac's life to care about worldbuilding.
>>30008817I'm not even normally /u/, but I think it would be funny as fuck for Ceru to fall for Lilac.It'd be troll as fuck to all the people that would never shut the fuck up about how "She's a perfect example of a heterosexual female character!" when she was 10.
>>30008898She's heterosexual because that's what the majority of the people here prefer and because Prof has actually given viable love interests early in the story.
>>30008898please keep this type of behavior to QTG
>>30008898Yeah, though I still think it's too early for any romance, straight or not
>>30008898>>30008927Yep. You've got an awful personality, anon. Try to at least keep it hidden in this thread.
>>30008914Or she can just not give of fuckThere is always that option
"Umm, What's the M-Virus? I haven't heard of this before, Professor." You raise your hand timidly, fearful of retibution.Hemlock looks at you a little funny, his eyes squinting at you amidst his profile of disheveled hair,"You've not been told? Ah, well, it is something that only rockets are privy to after all."Hemlock clears his throat," M-Virus, otherwise known as Monstrochondria. A micro-organisms much different from a virus that has been around for longer that the dome has apparently been around.It has been theorized that it came to this land via shooting stars, asteroids and comets falling from above. Those that survived the impact bonded with curious specimens that investigated the crash.As I've said, it's only a theory. From what we know, it aggressively bonds with, and forcibly mutates the genetic structure of anything it's interacted with. It's for this reason that we may acquire parts from monsters and implant it into our own young rangers with high traces of it.It certainly reduces the chance of rejection from the invasive surgery, while also increasing their rate of adaptive mutagenesis." The Professor appraises yours and Lilac's faces before sighing and rubbing at his temples."They're magical symbiotes in your flesh and blood that give you magical powers." You shakes his head, muttering under his breath,"Damn rangers, why'd I even bother explaining such a theory. They're not even bound to show the slightest interest."Looking up, he stares at Lilac again," I estimate your chances for survival to be at around 20%. If you're still willing to go through with it, I'll need your signature here."Hemlock hands his clipboard and Pen over to Lilac, and she just kind of stares at it for a moment before raising the pen...> Lilac, wait.> Stay quiet. Just support her.> Leave.> (Other)
>>30008898Think of it as backlash for how obnoxious /u/ anons can be at their worst.
>>30008957> Stay quiet. Just support her.She'll survive, just don't make her let go of her sword.
>>30008957> MonstrochondriaOH YOU MOTHERFUCKER
>>30008957>> Stay quiet. Just support her.>> Worried looks intensify
>>30008957t...twenty percent isn't much lilac.
>>30008957>> (Other)Remind her of the risk involved and that it's her choice
>>30008957> Stay quiet. Just support her....how much Tenacity does she have to burn?
>>30008957> Stay quiet. Just support her."You can back out Lilac, I'll still be your friend no matter what happens."
>20%What was Cerus?
>>30008949That's up to player choice, anon. Prof has already given clear indications that romance is on the table for this quest and there has been a large following for either Goldie or Devon. So, you know. Be respectful.>>30008957>magical symbiotesHah.>Ask if there was any way to improve Lilac's chances.
>>30008957>support her>be worried and fidget>tell her not to die, she'd likely wind up in a squad under your command so as her future co you order her not to die (on the verge of tears)
>>30008957[x]otherAre you sure you don't want to try working things out with agatha one more time?
>>30008957>>[x] Lilac, wait."are...are you sure you want to do this?"
>>30008957> Lilac, wait.Please, before you decide, make sure that you have no regrets doing this. I don't want to see you hurt yourself by being too reckless.
>>30008957goddamnit, it's Attack on Pokemon Parasite Hunter Quest now.Is there a way for Honedge to commune or something with Lilac? Summon/sap strength from other lifeforms to survive the surgery?Because...goddamnit, Lilac is not gonna say no.
Lilac was willing to risk leaving the dome with only a ghost sword.That was WAAAAAY less than 20%
If Lilac dies on the table, Ceru will NEVER forgive herself....
>>30008982Pokerus.>>30009001High enough to not require a quote.
>>30009002Goldie , has some one seems interested in himDevon I like, as he provides a challenge to conquerBruce as stated before has kitty, but it's doubtful he'll make any headway on thatLilac and Ceru is cute in my opinion, but it's also the most unlikely simply because Ceru has shown no homosexual tendencies or desires
>>30009046If Lilac dies on the table, she'll reappear at a later point in the story after Cerulean has gotten Froslass implants and will serve as a mentor/guide.Although I'd rather she lived.
>>30009058>Goldie , has some one seems interested in himWell, really, Goldie was already the easy target considering how well he'd started getting along with Ceru. So of course an obstacle (ie; a contender) would show up as a challenge to conquer his affections.
>>30008957>> (Other)What about the most minimal operation possible? She already has medium powers, so it's not like she needs the implant for anything more than legal jurisdiction.Could she get something really lame, like a single ear stitched to her shoulder?
>>30009060Implying Agatha won't destroy her soul once she learns that she died trying to became a ranger
>>30009051It's going to come down to a roll, isn't it...
>>30009086Yeah but she seems like a nice girl and I really don't want to steal her first love
>>30008957>>30009002>>30009087These make sense. We're only trying to get Lilac by through a technicality. See if there aren't things that could be done to reduce the risk to her while achieving the minimum needed for her to be considered a Ranger.
>20%Uh...Can we likeI dunnoGive her something to help?
>>30009105I would like to think that since prof won't let us choose drafts then he won't let us roll for the surgery too.
>>30008957>> (Other)"The theory you stated on the origin of the M-virus doesn't seem to fit with your hypothesis that Lilac's spiritual training increased her count."
>>30009110We really need to get around to asking just how Alexis began crushing on Goldie. Did he crush on him all along while he was getting bullied in Saffron? Or did she admire his dedication to improving his psychic abilities in the year before she passed the Viridian Wood test?
>>30009087>>30009051SKIN. Still counts as an organ, but is relatively easy to operate on and remove in case things go wrong.
>>30008957Remind her that it's her choice... but 20%....
>>30008957>20%Holy hell.Can we ask for a delay long enough to get Lilac some health training or some shit? Just make her jog and eat vitamin tablets for a week or so before doing this or something?
>>30009121Like a blood transfusion?
>>30009012>>30009121Honedge-assisted vitality transfusion! They suck life anyway, can they give it back!?>>30009051
>>30009087Pretty much this.
>>30009153That could be neat. Honedge life support?
>>30009164I still think you need important monster bits to be considered a rangerlike stuff useful in combat
>>30009131It granted her such powers. Also the likely cause of her advanced abilities as a medium. Her potential is measurable.
>>30008957>>30009087>>30009012These sound reasonable. If needed, Ceru can even offer up some of her own vitality. It's the least we can do after she saved us from having our soul eaten.
>>30008957>Stay quiet. Just support her.Why does believing in people have to be so haaaaard
>>30009212That doesn't mean that the training would increase the count, and actually contradicts the idea because for the high initial count to indicate a high potential, there would have to be a high initial count which goes against hard work increasing it.
>>30009212what do you need to be considered a ranger?
>>30008957[x] Lilac, wait.Nooooope. There might be a mechanic to make her live, bur 20% is too low.
>>30008957>Stay quiet. Just support her.I'm not going to enter the shipping argument at all. I'll just be in my corner, quietly cheering on Lilac and Ceru and throwing in my worthless vote when it comes up.
>>30009257There's having potential, and then there's being able to make use of it. This is an organism that forces evolution of absurd powers.>>30008669>Your M-Virus count very nearly rivals that of an Elite Four's child. It is very impressive. Likely a side-effect of the development of your spiritual abilities.This was meant as the initial development of said abilities, not the refining.
>>30009257>>30009212how about this? Spiritual powers attract M-virus, which still survive for a little bit after the host dies. ie. They mooch off the M-virus of dead people.
She had enough tenacity to give Agatha a big metaphorical middle finger, fuck with Devon, tell the Boss to his face that she fucked with Devon (three times while he looked madder each time), and she was totally prepared to WALK to Johto with only a honedge.Lilac can totally survive this surgery. She might end up losing all of her Ten score, but I think she'll pull through.
>>30008957Support her, but ask for options to make the percentage higher. Could her sword help?
>Lilac dies on the tableWakes up in the morgue, goes to see Ceru.
>>30009308Fuck. Just realized. All the pokemon.....they're probably ordinary animals and microorganisms which evolved after getting infected with the M-Virus.
>>30009318Oh fuck she's gonna become bosses new favourite
>>30009308So20% chance of success...What's the uh,crit fail chance (aka death on the table)
>>30009308>There's having potential, and then there's being able to make use of it. This is an organism that forces evolution of absurd powers.So this is actually a Toriko quest too?
>>30009308Being able to make use of it should be a separate thing from the potential itself.A big pile of bullets is a lot of potential to shoot shit. Adding more bullets to the pile doesn't do a thing for the marksmanship of the owner of said pile.
>>30009331IT'S THE CAT GIRL AND ZOMBIE SHOOOOOW
>>30009336Nah, we're both going to be his favorites and get headpats because we work well together and do missions together.
>>30009242The problem is, even if we are able to offer up our essence to the sword, we wouldn't have any way of knowing this in character, so we can't offer it up. Unless Lilac asks for our help, which she won't because she's probably insane.>>30009257I think the M virus is supposed to be more like a passive power potential increase, so if it starts low, you can still develop with hard work, and gain more M virus, but your implants won't passively upgrade as fast at the beginning.I don't know if I'm explaining that well enough, so as an example of how I see it:Rocket A starts out with shit M-virus, has low potential. Trains hard. has good M-virus, and good potential.Rocket B starts out with good M-virus, has good potential. doesn't train at all, still has good potential to develop his powers if he starts trying. (or possibly his M-virus count decreases.)
>>30009368>The problem is, even if we are able to offer up our essence to the sword, we wouldn't have any way of knowing this in character, so we can't offer it up. Unless Lilac asks for our help, which she won't because she's probably insane.We don't need to know if the Honedge can do it. Lilac already told us before that the spirits siphon life energy, back when she was explaining how the candles work in the Spire. It wouldn't take much to make the deductive leap and ask if Lilac can do the same and let us supplement her.
>>30009308So, Honedge life force transfusion?
>>30009347Better metaphor would be that the organism develops the gun to shoot said bullets. Then the skill required to shoot with accuracy would be the refinement.>>30009368As for increasing the count. It's possible via exposure.
>>30009308>>30009404Stop trying to teach anon Pokescience, you will fall asleep on your keyboard and nothing will be done.If you want to chat, do a Q&A at the end of the thread.
>>30009404pokescience. it works, kinda.seriously, life force transfusion and non-invasive implant,like skin, can we suggest these?
>>30009308>>30009404>>30009434Yes, get on with it!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEtm_Q2LK9g
>>30009440Look, lets just do the transfusion if it's possibleWe can't choose her graft
>>30009391I don't want to insult our protagonist, but it will be a pretty big leap for a twelve year old to think that. I agree that it would probably work, I just don't think it will occur to Ceru because her knowledge of that subject is sketchy at best.
>>30009477The point is whether we can do EITHER of these. Prof hasn't really replied yet.
>>30009482M-VIRUS, MOTHERFUCKER.I LETS CERU KNOW THE KNOW
I could see Lilac dying during the operation, and having trouble understanding why everyone is freaking out about it.
>>30009358>But Cerulean, she's already getting all of Boss's attention, she made him Laugh! Have you ever made him laugh? Her and that bitch Alexis are going to steal all the head-pats, and then what? You've got nothin. You need to take her out now. Just an extra-cold hug for a little too long, hell, she even likes it. Or even a claw across the throat. You haven't used your claws since that bastard Hypno. Imagine it, seeing her blood contrasting against such pale skin. It would be exquisite /dark.
>>30009482How is it a big leap? Spirits absorb life energy, then maybe Lilac can too? Easy.
>>30009505The Midichl- M-virus allows her to FEEL A CONNECTION WITH THE FORCE.
>>30009526I can't even tell if Giovanni actually found that funny or if he forced himself to relax and laugh so that he could better persuade a prospect like Lilac to go through with his suggestion.Although it would be touching if Giovanni really did get angry. It would mean that he really cares a lot for the Rockets under him. And it would make a lot of sense, considering how coldly he acted towards Janine after she rejected his offer to join the Rockets.
You touch Lilac's arm, and she looks to you, ponderous,"Cerulean.""Lilac, it's not a lot, are you really sure about this?" You feel your hands shake, tears welling up in your eyes as you stare into hers.She touches your cheek, brushing away your tears, and smiling her same old smile,"I was going to run away to Johto, and leave my only friend behind." She touches her forehead gently to your horn, you feel the wetness of her own tears drip down, soaking your fur."This way, I don't have to leave, right? I might get to see you again, right?"Throwing your arms around Lilac, you cry into her clothes as she pats your head gently, reassuring you despite it being her that's going in with a 20% chance to live.She looks to Hemlock,"I'll sign it but... Can I bring this sword in with me? He's worried for my safety. He might be able to help even..."Hemlock raises an eyebrow only to roll his eyes in his rugged, tired features,"I suppose it can pass. So long as you do not hold it directly. We require unrestricted access to your body."Lilac looks down at the sword, Okay. So long as he's near."Lilac pats you on the shoulder, and gently moves you away as you wipe away your tears. She looks like a real adult as she signs that document. Her expression resolute, determined. She has conviction.If she had the conviction to walk out of the dome and across the silver range, she should have the determination to live as well. She needs to."Don't die on me Lilac... I'll be sad if you do."Lilac pats your head again,"Yeah... You'll be visiting me. Here I thought I'd be the one to outlive you."She hands the form to Hemlock, whom nods with approval,"Right this way then, we must hurry before Agatha catches any wind of this."Lilac gets up, as you grip at her hand weakly, letting her go.She looks back with a reassuring smile, though more like she's unsure of what kind of face she should make. She's walking to her own death sentence.>Lilac Cam
>>30009561lilaaaaacTalk things over with agathaaaaa
>>30009561well nothing we can do now but wait
>>30009526I'm more curious to see which person Dark/evil typing will make Ceru doubt first, Giovanni or mom.>>30009561Ghost powers activate! CLING TO LIFE AND NEVER LET GO
>>30009561>Yeah... You'll be visiting me.That is, if Agatha even lets us....
>She's walking to her own death sentence.pls don't talk like that. My imagination is bad enough on its own.
>>30009592Is anyone else hoping that Agatha will be more or less Yubaba from Spirited Away?
>>30009602Man, imagine if giovanni got hitched with Ceru's mom
>>30009561>>Lilac CamPhew! I thought for a second we were going to have to fight off Agatha until the operation ended.implying she wouldn't just walk through the wall
>>30009561If there is rolling required in the near future, no way in hell I'm touching the dice. I don't want her life to be in my hands like that, If she died I would feel so shitty.
>>30009625Scary and strict, but not evil and actually very fair?Reminds me of Sabrina.
What implant do you guys think she's going to get?What type would compliment her ghost powers the best?
>>30009673She gon die
>>30009625Right now I've been imaging her as more like Genkai. Though that may be because I've been on a YuYu Hakusho binge the past few days.
>>30009561>>Lilac CamPlease for the love of god don't throw the implant choice to us
>>30009636>Implying she wouldn't just walk through the wall>And us
>>30009673Better not be feebas, I am good with anything but feebas
>>30009673Fairy (I hope)
>>30009561btw, Lilac and Honedge aren't going to start draining the DOCTORS, right? It would be a bad idea to steal life force from the people focused on keeping her alive, and LILAC KNOWS THIS RIGHT
>>30009708Nigga we've been through this a million times.
>>30009718If she does, and people notice, then Ceru will go in and hold Honedge's tassle so it takes from her instead. Because we're friends and that's what friends do.
>>30009718I think we're going to lose a nurse...or two
>>30009692may as well look up non-invasive implant choices>>30009733its the>and people noticepart I'm worried about.
>>30009673I'm personally hoping for poison, she could make a fucking badass ninja assassin with her skillset.
>>30009673Voltorb, so she can self destruct the second she wakes up
>>30009759That seems like the most risky type to implant.
>>30009768Voltorbs aren't monsters, they're batteries
>>30009759Need to get her trained in Fuschia, get her and Honedge like Xianghua from Soul Calibur.
>>30009777ah yes, I had forgottengeodude, so she can self destruct
>>30009771She already only has a 20% chance to live, she might as well go for it. Even if it lowers it 5% survival, she's still basically doomed either way.
>>30009673I don't care if she was dumb enough to pick Magikarp.I just hope she survives this.
>>30009807uhhh, how about no?20% is a lot better than 15%, and we're trying to raise it, here.I agree with this anon>>30009820>gyaradosON SECOND THOUGHT I DONT AGREE AT ALL.
>>30009833SteelNo evil plsNever evil
>>30009833Steel. we don't want her evil
>>30009833Lilac with Devonoia? HELL NAH>Steel
>>30009833Steel will be unanimous
>>30009833don't make us make this choice.steel
>>30009833steel is bestI've been petitioning for steel on anybody FOREVER
>>30009833I don't care how OP Spiritomb and Sableye are, Lilac's mischievous and detached as it is, girl doesn't need a dose of Evil.Also, really Lilac? Picking the two types that there aren't any Kanto representation for?Really?
>>30009833>Doc transplants Honedge>he did promise to keep the sword close to her
>>30009833COLD FRIGGIN STEEL.
>>30009833STEEVILSeriously though ,steel
>>30009833STEELWHY CAN IT BE???The only non-legendary pure Steel types are the Klink family.So it's OC or a dual type.PLEASE BE A MAWILE PLEASE BE A MAWILE!!!!
THE SONG OF STEELhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24z6ejrS7GMPls survive Lilac
>>30009879Isn't Honedge just a dude in a sword?
>>30009879>he did promise to keep the sword close to her>that cheeky fuckerhaha
>>30009896She already dresses like a priestess.
>>30009896FUCK YEAH MEGA LILAC
>>30009833>SteelCan't really girl talk with someone Evil. I mean, you can. But....the topics would be rather limited.
>>30009903Yup.Departed spirit stuck in a sword.
>>30009896Steel/Fairy, best typing
>Lilac becomes Ghost Steel>Weak to Devon's Fire Dark stab.>Still fucks with him anyway
>>30009901Holy fucking shitYou guysLilac can be a Witcher!
>>30009879>Doc puts Lilac under.>Picks up sword with Surgical gloves.>Stabs it into her abdomen.>High fives all around, surgery complete!
>>30009943>pokesurgeon simulator 2014
>>30009833On the one hand, I feel like Steel might be fat enough away from human biology to make it harder, on the other hand, pretty sure Evil requires brain surgery to work right.
>>30009943Perfection, just like the good Doctor
>>30009922>Talking about boys>Did you see Bruise earlier today? He looked so good I want to RIP HIS GUTS OUT WITH MY TEETH.That might be how women talk to each other for all I know.
>>30009978Pretty sure that's 100% accurate
>>30009943>Later that day, Dr. Hemlock had his doctor's license revoked>And then replaced with BEST FUCKING SURGEON license
>>30009896I'd planned for a cutty, cutty electric-type but... Mawile is really my favorite. Ugh.. the choices.That damn backwards glare.
>>30009939I am not opposed to this. Not at goddamn all. She would need herbal training though.Witchers are Ghost, Steel, Poisonor Fighting, Poison, esper-likeor....Witchers don't translate well into Pokemon, I think.
>>30010007Steel/Fairy is best type. You know this in your heart Ygg. Imagine it.FairyLilac.
>>30010007You know you wanna ProfessorYOU KNOW YOU WANT TO ITS JUST TOO EASY NOT TO DO ITMEGA EVO AHOY If we get lucky. Prolly not
>>30010007If you don't make it a Mawile, I will cut you.You said that Fairy type isn't understood well. Just have Viridian take them in as "abnormal normal types"That sounds like something the Boss would do to get a Ghost/ Steel/ Fairy ranger.
>>30009943>magic ghost girl with sword
>>30010007she can do this verbatimand then get in anyway
>>30010020Now imagine that wielding a giant-ass ghost sword.>SO MUCH YES.
>>30010020It fits with her eating ghosts, now she EATS FUCKING MONSTERS
>>30010022>Herbal training>Hey Jeanine, mind showing my friend how to coat her wicked arm blades with poison!>Nah she's immune to ever dying via poison so don't worry about hurting her
>>30010044>Just have Viridian take them in as "abnormal normal types">"abnormal normal types"Giovanni as fuck.
>>30010058Or 2 giant ass ghost swords.Or a ghost sword/shield.
>>30010007Fairy gets Play Rough.What would you call what she just did to Devon?SHE GETS A MAWILEDo >>30010044 if you have to swing it.
>>30010007Imagine it. Fairy/Steel/Ghost, it would be a beautiful sight, and immune to Normal/Fight/Poison/Dragon.
where does all this fairy bidness come from?
>>30010053Holy shit that is terrifyingWhat is that from?!
>>30009943>wakes up>finds sword in chest with Ceru looking on in horror>smile like its nothing and get to work, a rangers wok is never done after all>runs into devon who sleuths it was Lilac from earlier>devon when he tries to wail on Steel Liliac
>>30002131this was a lot easy then ceru's second implant choice
great, I need to leave right before the climax.COMEON HONEDGE, I TRUST YOU AS BEST BRO TO KEEP LILAC ALIVE
>>30010007>I'd planned for a cutty, cutty electric-type>That repto-slicer thingI cannot express just how much rage it makes me feel to imagine Lilac getting stuck with that.
>>30010117It's an edit of a Junji Ito manga page.Not sure which one.
>>30010128What? I like it. Electric doesn't suit her, tho, that's not totally our choice anyway.
>>30010121Devon wants to learn a new move: FEARBut devon already has four movesForget a move to learn FEAR?>Forget a move>give up on FEAR
>>30010121Y-You do realize he's fire type right?
>>30010151he would get in a lot of trouble if he used fire on another non-fire ranger.
If Lilac dies, I think we might be devastated enough for a Blissey to show up.So at least we'll have an egg to eat. As well as a Blissey.
>>30010151He'd be so mad/embarassed he'd probably try to sock her, only for her to catch him with ghost hugs and tickle him til he wet himself...again
>>30009943>Lilac rolls a nat100 on Surgery>Gets stabbed so hard she gets Steel-typeBitchin. I was thinking she'd end up with like Purrloin or something. We could have still been friends if she had gone Evil. We're headed that way too. We could go dark together.
>>30010196Imagine Ceru and Lilac working together to fuck with Devon's head. He wouldn't know what hit him, random freezes, spookiness everywhere.
>>30010208Deeeeeeeevon, why did you kill uuuuuusit buuuuuuurns Deeeevon IT BUuuuuuurns
You leave Cerulean behind as you clutch your sword, your friend that's been blue for as long as you've known him. Staring at the back of the man in white's head is an odd experience to say the least. His messy graying hair, disheveled and uncombed, and his demeanor somehow colder than the maidens of the door. Always waiting and watching you for visitors, challenging whatever may cling to them.The man leads you to a strange room and sits you down with a funny little device."It's here that you'll be selecting what you'll be implanted with. Scroll down the list of what e have available. Mind the fact that as this is a Rocket operation, you will find that you have a much wider selection than you'd normally have..."Looking through the list, you see a few things that look to be of some promise. You've only seen some of these creatures in illegal channelings you've done of brutally slaughtered tangers, and heard descriptions of them from your dearest friend Cerulean. Ugghh, you quiver at the thought of those times. You'll get to see them- for real!So many of these monsters though.. they look either artless or just.. not quite right. No doubt that there wouldn't really be anything outright spooky or anything...How about something.. dangerous? Yeah, that's what you want. Something that could tear things apart...Your eyes lock on a particular little monster that's been imported from another region. Small and yellow with a vicious maw situated at the back of its head. Something about it makes you squeal in delight, that causes a bead of sweat to form upon his brow."This one," You point filled with glee at the thought of mashing up monsters in that glorious extension,"I want this one!"Hemlock looks at your choice, adjusting his spectacles with a snide look,"Ah, Mawile. That's a testy one. We'll need to perform extensive modifications for the metallic bonding to take to your skeletal structure properly.You grin madly, you have NO idea what that means.
>>30010215That reminds me, we need to talk to Sanna about Devon. Seems like she might know things.
Guys we've been over this shit.Fairy types are nonexistant as far as Humanity knows. Yes that even counts the "abnormal normal type" bullshit.If a "fairy" get's captured then you bet your ass they aren't going to cut it up and put its innards inside a rookie ranger.
>>30010219and then lilac was Wolverine
Moments later, the thing is carted out within a case with a strange powder cycling through, and you're upon a white bed that they seem to call an operating table, a sheet larger than your robes thrown over you and fastened tightly.A glance up reveals that your friend is near, giving you reason to smile, his sash gives you a little bit of a wave.A mask is put over your mouth and a woman beside you whispers,"We need you to count backwards from ten."You take a slow breath as you feel something tickle your body."How do I count backwards from ten?" You whisper, breathing slowly.The woman brushes back your hair with a kind smile," Ten, Nine, Eight.."She does the counting for you. One less thing to worry about.You hope you get to see Cerulean again...>1d100DC80+Threshold Critfail of 205 rolls.
>>30010219...Maybe she should have aimed for Evil after all.Also goddamnit Blue, what are you doing being dead and in a sword?
>>30010208I can imagine him talking to his evil mind after training while Ceru and Lilac go invisible and whisper in his earD:Stupid fat cat, thinks she can ignore my challenge while she hangs out with the new girl? I'll show herL:But she's our friend, we shouldn't fight with her. We should be friends and hugC:And buy her ice creamL:And buy her and Lilac ice creamD:Yeah ice cream, I'll get them ice cream like they wouldn't believe. Then they'll see how alpha i am
>>30010228Without regen powers.So a carcass with metal on the bones
Lilac post surgery
Rolled 60>>30010234Oh my fuck. Don't let me be the one to kill her damnit.
>>30010234>RollingOh fuck you Prof, I'm not doing this.
Rolled 81>>30010234Goodbye Lilac.
>>30010219>MawileYESYES YES YES YESY E S
>>30010250>>30010260Oh my fuck.My heart can't take this.>>300102611 success to 2 crit fails....
>>30010234>RollingFuck off.>>30010266What did you expect?
>>30010250>>30010260>>30010261Does she have the necessary Tenacity?Considering the dice, I feel as if this is a surprising amount of success.
>>30010250>>30010260Well, two crit fails, hopefully the sword and burning Tenacity can help her out with that.>>30010261And a success by the skin of our teeth.
>>30010234>>30010266w-well she might have a lot of tenacity
Oh no, oh no no no...
>>30010250>>30010260>2 critfails>>30010261>1 success
>>30010281She's barely even alive and not instinctively interested in staying that way.
>>30010250>>30010260You killed Lilac.You monsters.
>>30010266>>30010288This is Cerulean's second surgery all over again. 1 success. 2 crit failures.I guess it's kind of.....symbolically appropriate.
>>30010279She ran away from Agatha, THE MOTHERFUCKING AGATHA, and was willing to trek to Johto with nothing but the clothes on her back and the sword in her hand. She undertook this procedure with the knowledge that she might very well die. Lilac should have plenty of Tenacity.
>>30010234Rest in peace, Lilac.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDNMrco6je8
>>30010301I feel nothing>>30010302but a slight flicker of hope
>>30010298If she dies she can't spend more time with her friend. Her dying would make Cerulean sad. She can't die now.
>>30010234>>30010302Oh gawd.But really, having that Honedge around.....is that our replacement for tenacity?
>>30010303Don't forget how she looked Boss in the eye with a shit-eating grin while he was pretending to be mad.She has more Tenacity than Bruise.
>>30010302>I guess it's kind of.....symbolically appropriate.It's not symbolic it just means that TRUSTING THE /tg/ DICE IS RETARDED
>>30010321She has more tenacity than Giovanni's right ballwhich has more tenacity then all of the lesser rockets combined
>>30010319>Honeedge is her knight>He spends all of his life force to try and save her>First critfail gone>As he passes, her heart goes out to him>"I can't do it without you!">Second critfail>Flat line
Prof KNEW there would be at least one critfail.One does not set the critfail range to 20% on a 5d roll.
>>30010343Eh. People have been telling him that before.
ARE YOU READY TO BE HEALED ANON
>>30010338OR>she starts flatlining>Honeedge ain't having none of it>Nurses start dropping like flies>vitals stabilize
Prof is there going to be an OC-mon of pic related?>muh plague doctor bird
>>30010343QMs cannot into probability.
>>30010343There was a 67.24 percent chance of a critfail.JUST a critfail.
>>30010371Yeah, I hated what that thing turned into.
>>30010374We got one success though!Hell, that's somethin...right?r-right...
>mfw my dice rolls kill againMaddie. No god. Not again.>>30010370IT'S A HEALING TYPE QUEST, ANON!
>>30010378I like it
>>30010374What were the chances for 80+?
>>30010374On these d100 ones think of them less as critfails, and more like complications to the procedure.
>>30010343>>30010373>>30010374This, I don't know why you guys even bothered rolling.
>>30010384A-anon, you're the other crit failer?I'm...I'm sorry... I can't...;~;
>>30010374I know there's a site where this sort of stuff is calculated. What was it?
>>30010395Because wherever we are, we must also roll.
the suspense is killing me
>>30010371That reminds me, I wonder if Prof has seen this guy's work?Another person who realized that Monster Hunter was already pretty much Pokemon and decided to do the rest himself.
>>30010392>complications to the procedure.You do know that "complications to the procedure" is the number one cause of death in hospitals right?
>>30010343Does Prof even listen when people explain probability here and in the QTGs?
Oh boy here we go.
>>30010343Hemlock said there was a 20% chance of survival.
>>30010429It'll be fine. I think.This quest has something that most quests don't: A mechanic to overcome critfails by spending points.
>>30010435I'm not even mad anon.Just listening to Lavender Town Lyrics and crying myself into my pillow
>>30010440Yeah, but that doesn't really translate into the dice since, with the chances of getting one success and getting a crit failure...
>>30010400Hold me. Please, just hold me....did anyone else see how she mentioned that she assumed she was going to outlive us? Not anymore, Lilac. Not anymore. This is where we break, isn't it? We did this. We made her want more. Made her want the outside world. We killed Lilac.
>>30010446>Just listening to Lavender Town Lyrics and crying myself into my pillowGood stuff, isn't it?
>>30010404I just used the calculator app on my phone. I'm sure there's a site like that somewhere.
>>30010441Which I am very happy exists, by the way.Holy crap am I glad that's a thing.
>>30010441We don't even have the option of doing that. Or at least, Prof has been ignoring posts about that.
>>30010440That's only when the critfailure is on a nat 1 on a 100, stop trying to imply that you know probabilities.
>>30010452I can hold you, but I can not stand.I am too busy drowning myself in tears.
>>30010452no, we didn't kill her.we just sat and watched
>>30010462I think he does it automatically.Bruise did it when he critfailed Rocket Training.Goldie couldn't do it when he critfailed mindwiping those guys because his Ten was too low.
>>30010440GOOD THINK THAT WE ROLLED A 81 THEN.Raising the critfailure to 20 was fucking retarded prof and means that Lilac had LESS than 20% chance to live.
And now Lilac is dead. She was never even supposed to be here. She was only here because you wanted to be something you're not.A friend.
>>30010453Yes.I hate you, this song makes it so much worse.
>>30010440well, the chance for a critfail is like 60%.just... it was only two critfails countered by a success.Please let her have tenacity.
>>30010440>>30010450>>30010465Yeah, saying that it's a 20% chance of success isn't really appropriate, considering.
>>30010441I'm pretty sure she's going to die though.>>30010458Or spend all of her points just to end up comatose for a year, which is what I'm hoping for, though it's pretty unlikely she'll be anything but dead-dead
>>30010440Ygg, rolling more dice increases the chances of a low number. Its basic probability. You HAVE to keep that in account when making your critical chances.
>>30010482Critfail =/= instakill. Ceru lived through a double critfail operation because she had Ten to burn.
>>30010458Yeah, I like how it's implemented. It provides us with a way to occasionally dodge the bullet for a penalty, as well as a way to reward us with points for taking certain actions. I've never liked the reroll mechanics that a lot of quests use where it's implemented as a skill. See- HQR. It basically turns problems into save-scumming and removes a lot of the risk from decisions.Unrelated- My god, they were grafting that stuff to her skeleton. She crit failed THAT.
>>30010440She has tenacity to burn, right?Hell, she escaped from the spire and was planning on WALKING to Johto. She's gotta have tenacity.R-right?
>>30010482>>30010487>>30010493I've never seen Prof reply when people tell him about probability, guys.
>>30010489>I'm pretty sure she's going to die though.Ceru's last operation got rolls exactly like this: 1 success and 2 critfails.
>>30010506Prof allowed us to burn tenacity for Bruise when we were rolling for Rocket training.>>30010511Which means nothing, if Prof doesn't let us burn tenacity.
>>30010509Maybe he just hates math
>>30010511Yes, and Ceru lost control and frost breathed a nurse to, almost, death.What do you think is going to happen to Lilac that has Spooky Ghost Powers?
>>30010519>Which means nothing, if Prof doesn't let us burn tenacity.We've never had to tell him to burn it for other characters when they were able to.Except Devon, but that was another level of control that we're not at now.
>>30010378please Professor, I don't think I can take this againIvan was bad enough
>>30010484Did you read the description for how the singer came up with the lyrics?
>>30010529There is no Lilac, only Zuul.
>>30010529She absorbs several nurse's life force, like some anon said. Through Honedge that is.Hope that's not uh, her fault technically.
>>30010529>Exorcism in the operating roomTHIS GON BE GOOD
>>30010544Ceru busts in"Quickly doctor, I need a puppy and a kitten. The power of hugs compels you!"
A true 20% critfail would be setting the lower limit to 5. 4% every dice roll.
>feasts on the souls of the deceased patients' ghosts lingering in the buildingwe turned our friend into a soul eating monster
I'm about to start eating my limbs due to stress
>>30010563oops setting it to 4, not 5.
>>30010535>I don't need to remember that right now anon
>>30010569>thread over>come back next time to find out what happened
>>30010568Or she could find her own sword to possess. Maybe that's how Doublades are formed.
>>30010581Don't you dare, I'd start going bald if he did that
>>30010531Bruise. I....I just mentioned it in the same post. We burned tenacity for Bruise.
>>30010568Honestly she'd be doing us a favor if she did that, you don't want ghosts hanging around operating rooms.
>>30010569>>30010581Prof wouldn't do that to Anon....pic related
>>30010603And that wasn't our choice. He did it automatically.
You feel weak your heart's beating far slower than usual... No.It's not beating at all.You gasp for breath as you're dimly aware of what's going on. Your body feels numb, the people around you look sad, as they look at a machine making a steady, bleeting.====Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee===Your lungs won't move, your body won't move, and your vision is hazy. A roll of your eyes, and you see the various little metal instruments lodged within your body to pull your skin back and expose your muscle, bones, and guts. The little creature that had been carted in is picked apart. You feel a bit giddy about that.~I killed you, to put in me~You laugh on the inside.Where's your friend? Is he near? Oh... You sense him being held by one of the nurses looking at you, she begins to walk away, taking your friend with you."You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you Lilac?" A familiar voice speaks to you through the ether. That old, tired and haggard voice makes you really want to cry, only.. your body won't respond. Nothing's working. That stupid bleeting sound just keeps going on, and on."Had I known that you would be so rebellious I may have chosen someone else as my protegee.""There were the others, though right? Why not them?""Lilac, you were the strongest. I have made and repeated mistakes in my long life. I had never intended for you to be one of them." At the corner of your vision, you see the sword's sash wrap itself around the nurse's throat, strangling her as she gasps for air, clutching at her neck, attempting to pull the cloth away, yet it's to no avail, even with assistance.
>>30010618No, he asked us to.
>>30010629this is all going so POORLY
>>30010629This is going perfectly.
>>30010639This was going to go poorly from the beginning.
>>30010629Well here's the thing that was gonna happen by default because /tg/ dice.
>>3001056320% to LIve.80% chance to die.
>>30010629Ceru I'm alive>Yay!Also two people died>...Woo
>>30010629I hope that wasn't the nurse who treated Cerulean. This would be a horribly ironic way to die.
>>30010658Fix you? I came here to laugh at you
>>30010662Yeah, even then.
>>30010629HONEEDGE STRANGLE THE LIFE FORCE OUT OF HER. I BET SHE RAPES CHILDREN OR SOMETHING. DON'T STOP LIL BUDDY
>>30010662No.Shut up.You don't understant so stop trying to.Just write and shut up.
>>30010666I was just telling my friend last session that Remedy is a saint that deserves our undying respect and gratitude...it's totally her...
>>30010662Er, crit failures, Prof. Because crit failures subtract from our successes.A failure is a failure if it doesn't reach the requirement, but a crit failure makes things harder by taking away any successes we DO get.
>>30010662Redeath is right Professor. You can ignore all of those warning you about your mistake but stop trying to correct them.
five rolls at 1-20 is 100% chance of a critfail if you intended 80% then you want 16.
We did this. We killed her.
>>30010689>>30010696>Redeath is rightWhat a horrible time to live at.
>>30010662Prof, you're forgetting crit failures. Like what>>30010686said, crit failures take away successes.If you had wanted a 20% for success, you'd have removed the crit failures. I KNOW someone has explained this to you before, here or in the QTGs, but you never seem to notice or respond to them.
>>30010701We didn't, math did.
Holy shit people stop trying to jew the dice math and let him run his fuckdamned quest. I bet she dies because you all keep bitching at him when he was probably going to give her a shot.
>>30010696... that's not how math works.With a 1/5 chance of a crit fail, you have a 32.768% chance of not getting any crit fails on five rolls.
"You will understand the weight of the lives, the souls you take in the future. I should never have sheltered you with such ambitions. I thought you would be satisfied with Lorelei's child..."The Nurse grabs the sword by its handle, flailing away at the other surgeons in the room, forcing them back. With the very next move, the sword is driven into the palm of your right hand, through the fabric of the bed.Feeling returns to that part, and you flex your fingers as you feel the pain run through your hand.The woman's life-force floods through your body, empowering you, and making you feel... feel GOOD."May you gain a conscience in that friend of yours. Your fate is your own. Someday you will outlive her, outlive everyone you know. When that day comes, I will be waiting for your return home." Your hearing returns. Nurses scream as the woman falls limp, the thirsty sword taking everything from her that it can take.Your beautiful friend returns life to you. You take a breath as function returns to your abdomen, the slow beat of your heart pushing blood against your several wounds."I'll see... my friend again..." You croak, forcing out the fluid of your lungs with a rattle of death between breaths.The Nurse, no longer able to support herself, falls to the ground, dead beyond a shadow of a doubt.Hemlock steps forward, wary of the blade as the steady beeps of your monitor return,"We continue."A man of conviction... You like him.Your friend remains in your hand, balancing out your force of life through the remainder of the operation. You remain awake for it, giddy at the little pokes and prods as they put more flesh from that monster inside your body.Agatha grants you freedom, your friend gives you life, and you'll see Cerulean again... Your life as a ranger begins...>End Lilac Cam
>>30010662Then, to be matemathically correct, you should have made it <27/28 critfail.Aaaaaaand I'l shut up now.
Can we continue on before I go bald from stress here people?
>>30010706He's not.Five rolls with a threshold of 20 is no where near 100% chance of critfail.Prof's probabilities arent right either.
>>30010735Fuck that's spooky
Alright we really need to become immortal somehow. We are NOT leaving Lilac to deal with Agatha alone .
>>30010735...REALLY glad she didn't pick an Evil type.
>>30010735AgathaaaaDoes this mean you -weren't- going to prevent her from seeing us?Does that mean she was misinformed or lying about that?
>>30010749If the critfails overule the successes, like here, then he is correct.Anyway none of it matters now.
>>30010756>Obtain Froslass>Eat ghosts
>>30010735Aww, Agatha really does care.
>>30010735I like Hemlock
>>30010735WellDamn.Muh tears are real, but it seems they were wasted.thank you based Agatha. I want to meet you in person If you even have a person you're my favorite old hag.;~; damn it tears go away
And so you faggots see that "80% chance of dying" means a lot less to someone with spooky powers.It was really an 80% chance of Lilac eating one of the nurses.
>>30010779You can shed the tears for that nurse who died.Lilac won't.
>>30010735>nurse diesWell. Fuck.I think all this could have been avoided if we could have convinced her to go back to the tower and talk about her aspirations frankly.Poor nurses. Why do they even work here?
Hey since we're around the Doc we should explain how we are changing. It's kind of important now that Lilac is not in danger of running off\dying immediately.
>>30010789>"80% chance of dying"Prof never did say who would die....
>>30010735>"We continue."Based Hemlock
>>30010800Somebody has to.
>>30010800Because the pay is good, it's good work, and if you lose a limb you get a discount on your next Silph co Product
>>30010735>Cerulean is so demanding to see Agatha so she can hug the hell outta herI love/hate you so much right nowwhy must you toy with me so
>>30010774Oh god, this needs to happen. We can be friends forever. FOREVER.
>>30010800They're probably all clones anyway.
Oh. Uh.Well guys, looks like Lilac may be addicted to human blood.Or maybe just blood.THIS IS GONNA FUCKING SUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
>>30010735Fuckin' A.I'm happy about this, but it sucks that the nurse died.
>>30010811Technically, Lilac did die. For like 30 seconds her heart was stopped.So it was two deaths, although only one is permanent.
>>30010756It was thanks to Agatha that we can still deal with Lilac.Granted she's no Giovanni or Lorelei, but she at least cares about who she looks after, unlike some other people we know.
Soooooany bets on how long it takes Lilac to take a bite out of a civie with her Mawile mouth?
>>30010840I don't belieeeeveCerulean- visit family of dead nurse
>>30010840>The true function of the nurses is to be meatshields for the Professors in the case that things go sour.
>>30010840So uh, just questioningDid the 'two deaths' count because of the fails, and did the 81 actually let us live? Or was that a scripted event?
>>30010840hah I love it.
>>30010833There's gonna be a loooooooot of missing Eevees in the near future.
>>30010845WHOAWHOAWHOA HOLY FUCKGUYS ISN'T THIS SHIT EXACTLY WHAT AKUMA QUEST'S MC STARTED WITH? A METAL MOUTH OR SOME BULLSHIT!?
>>30010840Obviouslylike anyone can deny cloning exists in pokemon, just look at Joy/Jenny
>>30010718The problem, I think, is that Prof never addresses these things. Even if things turned out well, the problem was created by him.There's, what, a 67.3 chance of a crit fail? That's different from a normal failure (that is to say, a roll that isn't 80+). Crit failures TAKE away from successes.It's only natural for people to get frustrated. It's not as if people haven't tried to be polite about it before, but Prof just doesn't seem to acknowledge those posts. Until recently, that is, and even then, it's to correct them.
Nah, if anything Lilac is going to be an energy vampire. Why bother with blood when you can feed off their very soul?
Does anybody else find her tormenting the Mawile spirit just as creepy as eating the nurse?I mean, really. "Ha ha! I had you killed so that they could put your pieces inside me."/smugfaceIt's... It's really twisted.Lilac best grill
>>30010851first thing they teach in med school actually
>>30010872ah yes. the teeth. especially the chainsaw teeth. How I miss them...
>>30010840Oh.That's alright then.
>>30010840YOU TOLD US THEY WEREN'T.
>>30010891And just think, if she was Evil type, she'd be even WORSE.
>>30010840ah, drain another on the way. Lilac is still growing
>>30010891Lilac's entire shtick is being creepy in a really adorable way. Or being adorable in a really creepy way.Also, totally in favour of Froslass for Cerulean now. Ice ghost and metal ghost team up to make Devon never sleep again.
>>30010845>>30010872>An emotionally stunted killing-machine with a metal body that feeds off souls....oh my god.>>30010835Just the two of us being 2spooky for all eternity. Among other things.
>>30010879>>30010879Disney has a song to sing you.
>>30010833Er....no she isn't? What gave you that idea?She simply doesn't think of death in the same way as everyone else does. She's been like that since we've met her.It seems like Agatha is letting her out so she can "grow" a proper conscious.
>>30010891but she didn't "kill" the mawile, she became her
>>30010924So Lilac confirmed for wolverine?
>>30010879Don't think of Crit Fails in these events as EVERYTHING IS RUINED FOREVER. Think of them as there is a complication, something goes awry, but the task can still be accomplished, it just costs you something. And there being a 67.3% chance that something goes awry in this surgery seems perfectly reasonable. Lilac is older than is preferred for implants and not in the best condition. >>30010872Is it just me, or does she remind you guys of Kama, from Akuma, as well?
You receive a checkup from a proffesor's aid, recount your pains, and show him where it hurts. A massage and a dismissing appraisal of your arms later and he unceremoniously congratulates you on your evolving.He jots down some notes for the Professor to sign for you to receive pain medication to get through the whole ordeal."It's the remoraids apparently, seems you've been using them vigorously enough that evolution has been stimulated. Your Omnibladders will be changing substantially.If you wouldn't mind us observing the changes every day, we would appreciate it as an educational experience of first hand remoraid evolution."You shy away from that subject a little bit but you...> Wouldn't mind daily checkups.> Would rather just be left alone while it happens.
Lilac is the single most METAL character in this quest.
>>30010932Maybe she ate the Mawile's soul to cancel one of the critfails, and then Blue cancelled the other?
>>30010946>[X] Wouldn't mind daily checkups.FOR SCIENCE
>>30010946>Wouldn't mind daily check-upsCeru's pretty dutiful.
>>30010946>[x] Wouldn't mind daily checkups.It's kind of embarrassing, but FOR HUMANITYwe can also visit our friend more often
>>30010946>[x] Wouldn't mind daily checkups.
>>30010946>[X] Wouldn't mind daily checkups.Honestly we're better off that way. Besides we can try to learn more SCIENCE!
>>30010946Daily Checkups should be fine, advancing pokescience never hurt anyone.
>>30010921They're still people.
>>30010946> Wouldn't mind daily checkups.It's for the Rockets, and SCIENCE. And Hemlock helped out Lilac, it'd be rude not to do him a favor.
>>30010954...That's her tenacity. She leeches it from other people.Fucking neat.
>>30010946>Check upswith plenty of Nurse Lilac to help us>>30010953>Steel typeobviously
>>30010946>> Wouldn't mind daily checkups.SCIENCE!
>>30010946> Wouldn't mind daily checkups.Plus it gives us a chance to see more of Hemlock and Remedy.
>>30010946>Wouldn't mind daily checkups.We wouldn't have to stay in the hospital all the time, would we?
>>30010946[X] wouldn't mind daily checkups, just make sure you notify the rocket command so they know
>>30010943>a psychotic killer with a mothering personalityKama would be like... the bastard child of Lilac and Cerulean. Our kindness+Her nuttiness>>30010946>Wouldn't mind daily checkups.It's gonna suck for us, but maybe we'll get some nice pain meds or something for our troubles.And we'll get to spend time with Lilac while she recovers from the whole dying on the table thing.
>>30010943Can Prof confirm that? Can he come up and tell us right now that crit failures in these kinds of rolls don't actually lead to a failure?Again, the real problem here is that Prof just dismisses what he's told about probability. He doesn't even respond unless he's telling them they're wrong.
>>30010946>> Wouldn't mind daily checkups.SCIENCE! the life blood of the dome!
>>30010943Exactly what I was thinking
>>30010979Gives a whole new meaning to the term 'Leech Life" don't it?
>>30010989Lilac is very loving towards her friends, granted her two friends are us and a sword, but she really cares about them. And Ceru probably feels a bit mothered in their hugs.
>>30010980Considering how Mega Evolution works, with an item unique to each species, nothing is going to stop them from giving a Megavolution to everything in upcoming games, is there?
>>30010990Pretty much true. I don't consider critfails as , you trip and get impaled.It's a complication. As much as I make it out for encounters. Granted, if she died on the table, Cerulean would be crying for DAYS.In this case, Lilac is liberated, lived by the sacrifice of another, and doesn't even really care.Agatha also specifically stated to hope Cerulean becomes her Jimminy Cricket.I also hate dealing with mathematical probability. I rather just focus more on what I should be writing.
>>30011029Then what would it have taken to actually fail the roll, Prof? If we hadn't gotten an 81?
>>30011024didn't stop them from making pokemon like "ice cream cone" and "slightly different monkeys" so no, nothing will stop them
>>30011029Also, she had the Tenacity, and presence of the sword to carry through that success.>>30011047Pretty much.
>>30011029>cerulean acts as jimminy cricketOn it, boss.
So Marine is going to be a Water Ground type.So if she gets something with the Sap Sipper ability, she won't be weak to any type.Except if something knows Freeze Dry. That single move hits water/ground for 4x.
>>30011029I get ya. So, Elite four watchful eye saved her, along with Honedge.Neat.
>>30011029You're going to make Cerulean wonder if she should be happy that her friend lived, or sad that a nurse died in her place. Poor Ceru.
>>30011054so we literally saved our BFF by 1that's...shit man, I don't think I can deal with that fact..
>>30011029 Marginally related, I think I've figured out Lilac's power. She's effectively immortal because like Agatha she is capable of consuming the spirits , thus giving her an Alucard-esq pool of lives to fall back on, and as long as she continues to eat she will keep that buffer, but of course at the cost of many innocent souls, as we just saw, so Agatha wants her to learn moderation and proper diet. Am I close?
