Welcome to Academy City. The time is evening, the weather is uncomfortable and the date is July 19.You are Kyril Torikov and you are in pain. Those four words are inadequate to describe your pain. In fact, if you had to describe your pain it would go something like, “human spines are not meant to twist that way,” or words to that effect. It is a testament to Aneue’s skill that you are still not dead yet somehow are suffering from her tender mercies. The Tokiwadai students that pass by giggle at your limp and helpless form as Aneue drags you to her office.With a bony “crack” sound, you find yourself in control of your neck, and the rest of your body. You are seated and it appears that Aneue only dragged you here to treat that cut on your brow. It looked worse than it was really but you realise that you were bleeding for quite some time and a bit of your clothes would require your patented “soda scrubbing” technique. Still you sit still as Aneue does her work. It would not do to get her talking.“So Torikov,” she says as she cleans your cut like a corner, “what do you have to say for yourself?”She’s right in your face. What do you have to say for yourself?>Would you believe that they attacked me first?>To be fair she enjoyed the date anyway>It’s a very long and complicated story, recount your week>Say something else (Write-in)

>>30168474>To be fair she enjoyed the date anyway
“I took a wrong turn,” you reply cheekily.It is then that your heard is subjected to a vice grip.“Would you care to repeat that?”“Would you believe that they attacked me first?”Aneue gives you a hard look before moving on to bandage your cut. Once done she seats herself opposite from you.“I’ve heard that one before,” she breaks the short silence before rummaging around her desk, “That aside, I notice that you were quite friendly with Kudou, so I’ll give you two pieces of advice. Level 4 and Level 5s are often forceful personalities with their own quirks. It may be hard to resist but you must know when to put your foot down.”That was actually something you were starting to realise so it wasn’t much in terms of advice but you nod anyway.“And finally, if you do anything to hurt her then I’ll show you why I’m the Dorm Supervisor for a Level 5.”“I think she enjoyed the date.”Aneue frowns at your cheek but still pulls out a bottle of whiskey. You think it’s something she has from time to time given how stressful dealing with Level 3s and up is. She’s pouring herself a glass now but you still have something from which you can drink the whiskey.>Ask her for some>Thank her and leave
>>30169015And forgot my trip.
>>30169015>Thank her and leavedo not taunt the claw!
>>30169015Ask if she has any vodka

>>30169015>>Ask her for someWe old enough to die this damn city, old enough to drink.
>>30169015Ask her for some and say its for disinfecting your cut.
Does Kyril prefer Prokofiev or Rachmaninoff?
>>30169264He loves Metallica, ADCD and Queen.What? Can't a Russian enjoy Rock music?
You don’t know why you’re like this around Aneue. Always toeing the line, always pushing as far as you can go, taking an inch and making it a mile. It is why you don’t hesitate to ask,“Can I have some?”“I presume it is for disinfecting your cut?” she knows you pretty well.“If I wanted to drink it I’d be asking for some vodka,” you reply.Sighing she passes you the bottle as she mutters,“For the next five seconds, I am going to close my eyes and pretend that the whiskey missing from my bottle is because I may have drunk more than I should have today.”When she closes her eyes, you pour as much as you can out of the bottle in to your empty jar of painkillers. You made sure to wipe it clean with your shirt before you do however. You have about half a jar when four seconds have passed and don’t take any more. Her eyes scrutinise you for a moment before capping the bottle and putting it away. You make sure to remember that she keeps in her bottom-right drawer.“By the way,” she starts up again, “I didn’t congratulate you for scoring quite yet.”Aneue raises her glass. It must have been the alcohol.>Cheers, down the hatch and all that>She’s not my girlfriend!>Thank her and go home
>>30169459>Cheers, down the hatch and all that
>>30169459>>Cheers, down the hatch and all that>Thank her and go home
>>30169459>Cheers, down the hatch and all that.I propose a secondary objective. get Aneue laid/a BF. Maybe that blue haired dude she likes Daigo?
>>30169486Sure.why is it that I see Aneue having an Ahegeo face.For real.
>>30169459>Cheers, I think?
>>30169459Say "That doesn't sound like something a dorm supervisor should be saying" as you raise your glass.
“Cheers, I guess,” you answer.Touching your respective liquid containers against each other the both of you take a long pull. You knew she was in to strong stuff but even this made you lose your sight for a bit as the liquid made its journey down your gullet known. When your eyes refocus, you notice a bottle of whiskey in her hands as she refills both of your liquid containers.“So Aneue, are you sure you don’t want to gift me an older brother soon? I’ll beat you to a wedding at this rate,” you joke.You both laugh at this though you notice your vision abruptly cuts out.The next moment you are aware of the pavement, which you seem to be sleeping on. The time is now morning, the weather is “OH GOD THE SKY IS FALLING ON MY HEAD” and the date is now July 20. You don’t seem to how you ended up like this, nor where you are exactly but you couldn’t have gotten far. What you are aware of apart from solid ground is that someone is poking you. Turning your head slightly, your bleary eyes catch sight of a girl. You realise you’re somewhere near the Tokiwadai Middle School dorm.Describe the one poking you,>A blond broad with shining eyes>A Judgement officer

The familiar green armband is unmistakeable. It’s the first thing you notice because you were used to running away from them.“Judgement,” you hear her announce.“No, no, trying it again, like so,” another voice cuts in, “Judgement desu no.”“J-j-judgement, d-desu no,” the first officer repeats.“We’ll work on it Kaoru,” her colleague sighs, “You there, what are you doing here?”“Shirai, he smells of alcohol, we should take him in.”“He’s also injured but it looks like he’s been treated in any case I agree with your decision,” the one named Shirai agrees, “We would like you to come quietly with us for questioning.”You have a headache and there were two of them. Both of their abilities were unknown so you don’t fancy your chances against either of them. Plus, it looked like Shirai was wearing a Tokiwadai uniform. The other one, Kaoru you think, isn’t but she doesn’t look any able to handle herself in a fight. You surmised that you must have passed out drunk and Aneue tossed you out and left you here. There were two options here,>Talk fast (a convincing write-in may boost the chance of success, or failure)>Go quietly
>>30170478We got jumped Walking home and a teacher saw us. Dragged us in for treatment. Sterilized the wound with alcohol. It's only barely a lie.
>>30170478>Talk fast (a convincing write-in may boost the chance of success, or failure)We got cut up, use alcohol to help the wound and then got our neck broken by the Supevisor.
>>30170478>Talk fast"I smell like alcohol because it was rubbed onto me injuries. Stings like a bitch. As to why I'm lying here, I've got a splitting headache and the concrete is cold."
>>30170478add " Some punk hit me in the head with a bottle of whiskey and ran off." then this>>30170539 " And I guess I was hit harder than I thought...I think I'll go see a doctor now if that's alright with you."if they ask, we never got a good look at them.
>>30170539This except switch teacher for "some good Samaritan, I think" and add that they didn't have any painkillers so they improvised. In retrospect, that may not have helped the concussion.
>>30170478Took a nasty hit to the head after running into a few delinquents.The alcohol smell is a left-over from the disinfected wound. I think I somehow angered the Dorm Supervisor and then blacked out.
>>30170618They already surmised the fact that we've had medical treatment, so we should probably go with "I need to change into clean clothes and wash, or burn, these."
>>30170623Ooh, I like the concussion angle, it explains the headache and sensitivity to both light and noise. Hell, the treatment is staying inactive in a dark room until you heal up, that's kind of perfect.
>>30170705I was saying lie and say the medical treatment we got was not sufficient( the cut was treated but not "Concussion") and that we should seek out a doctor. then fuck off back to home.
we're going to the drunk tank aren't we?
>>30171018We're not even drunk anymore! We should go to the hungover tank!
There was more than one way to get rid of Judgement as you’ve learned over the years. Talking was one of them. They usually would leave you alone as long as the details could be put down on a report later or whatever kind of paperwork they did. For something as small as this you could definitely get to leave you alone. First step, explain the injury.“Well I got jumped by some thugs last night if you’re wondering.”Next step, explain away the alcohol.“A good Samaritan found me and well, I had run out of painkillers so they improvised.”Final step, explain your current situation.“Admittedly, I don’t think that helped the concussion so I probably collapsed here.”Shirai scrutinises you with narrowed eyes whilst Kaoru seems more concerned about your condition.“Be that as it may it would be better if you accompanied us,” Shirai shoots you down dispassionately.“Shirai, it’s alright, I think he’s had enough trouble for one night.I’ll accompany him back to his dorm and you can file this away for later,” Kaoru replies.With another glare Shirai finally lets you off as you leave with Kaoru though you have a feeling there was more than one gaze directed at you. This is not before you surrender your contact information however. It is as you break away from Shirai that Kaoru speaks to you again,“So what’s the real story?” she asks.>Deflect, ask about her>Suspect, what is her angle?>The truthWrite-ins may enhance your chance of success, or backfire
>>30171175>The truthshe sniffed out our bs and didn't insta fuck us over.
>>30171175>The truthLeave out the part about who we were drinking with, just in case she DOES plan to screw us in the asshole.
>>30171175>deflectWe need that plot development
>>30171175>The truth"That was half-true. The injuries are legitimate, but the alcohol was administered internally. Having your spine broken like that warrants as much."
>>30171175>The truthwe had learned our friend Sagara is doing better,had a successful date, won a fight, and caught up with an old friend. Why shouldn't we have celebrated?>With another glare ShiraiI hate you too bitch
You give her the truth, but not your whole life story. She was pretty close when you spoke earlier so she must have smelled the alcohol on your breath and called out your bullshit. That she didn’t actually make a move to get the real story earlier meant she wasn’t those stick-up-the-ass types.“Well I wasn’t lying when I said I got jumped by thugs but as you’ve probably guessed, my helper had given me some alcohol to both disinfect my cut and numb the pain. Well, one thing led to another so I assumed I drank the night away with them.”“And they were a resident of the Tokiwadai Dormitory yes?”You hesitantly answer with a, “Yes.”“Well I will not do much but to advise against drinking heavily, if at all, in the future. It would be better for the both of us I think.”You easily agree, about the drinking heavily part anyway, before you arrive at your dormitory. Amidst the conversation you catch her name. It is Jaswinder Kaur and since her last name was pronounced Kaoru in Japanese she permitted people to call her if only to make conversation easier. You can tell by the name that she isn’t Japanese and her physical appearance suggests Asian. It is as you ascend the steps to your dorm, you notice that she is inspecting something on the walls. It looks like some plastered a bunch of stickers around your dorms but it wasn’t doing any harm so you dismiss it. Kaoru however seems to look at them with an intensity that matched Shirai.[1/2]
>>30171949You barely manage to catch her muttering under her breath,“English Protestants.”Regardless of what she had against that particular religion, you part ways with her there and return to your room. A quick shower and change of clothes later and you’re feeling fresh. The time is still morning, the weather is slightly better and the date remains unchanged. Now that you had a day to yourself there were many things on your mind. You intend to resolve one by the end of the morning.>Visit Sagara, ask around for Kiyama Harumi>Visit that website; you need to acquire the Level Upper>On second thought, those stickers were strange
>>30171972>On second thought, those stickers were strange.Maybe its for some new band!

>>30171972>On second thought, those stickers were strangeIT TIME TO SAVE TOUMA.
>>30171972>On second thought, those stickers were strange
You don’t know why but somehow those stickers felt wrong. Well if Kaoru, a member of Judgement, found them suspicious then you had a good reason to check them out. They were all the same with some star design and an alphabet that could only be runic on them. You’ve seen them before in video games but it’s the first time someone’s bothered to print it out and paste it around your dorm. Kaoru is still there only this time she’s removing the stickers.“Does this fall under vandalism?” you ask her.“Unlawful advertisement,” she answers, “And if you want to be helpful, remove them from the upper floors since this is a boy’s dormitory.”Giving her a shrug, you get to work. You weren’t averse to physical labour but there were so many of the damn things that you resorted to telekinesis to peel them off the surfaces. It doesn’t take you that long to finish two floors, only half an hour you think. As you make it up to the third floor you notice a black robed figure kneeling on the floor. There were more of the damn stickers and it looks like he’s the one responsible.“Hey you,” you catch his attention, “The hell you think you’re doing littering up the dorm?”He turns around at you surprised. Was he dumb enough to think no one would notice? Then his hands burst in to flames. Oh, just great.“Torikov-san, please move back,” you hear Kaoru coming up behind you, “I’ll take care of this.”>Fuck that TK him over the side of the guard rail (1d20)>Let the professional deal with this

>>30173384"Lights out, súka."
You seriously didn’t want to get another fight so soon after your last one but it looks like there was no helping in. As Kaoru steps in front, you notice that in her hand was a dagger. It was about the size of your palm before angling sharply in one direction before it finally tapered to a point. You don’t know what she intended to do but you already knew what you were doing. With a tilt of your head, the flaming faggot goes flying over the railing. A drop from the third floor probably wouldn’t kill him if he landed right. What surprises you is that he manages to railing on the second floor and Kaoru who leaps over the railing and tackling him off of it.You don’t hear much of a struggle as much as you hear groaning as you peek over the edge. Kaoru seems fine but the pyro isn’t. Moving back you hurry up and descend the stairs to find Kaoru cutting him up in various places. A pile of paraphernalia stands idly by the side.“What are you doing?” you ask.“I am severing his tendons,” she answers casually, “He won’t die.”The punk is on his back and barely cries out as Kaoru continues surgically cutting him in various places. After she is done she sets fire to his items save for his clothing.“There that should do it, now he’s secure for transport,” she states as if a job well done, “I’ll take it from here and thank you for your assistance.”>Go back to downloading the Level Upper>Go back to investigating Kiyama Harumi>You expect me to ignore this?

The way she speaks and is handling the situation is not only suspicious but downright bizarre by your standards so no, you can’t ignore this and you tell her so,“I'm interested in answers Miss Kaur, whatever is going on impacts my life and I want your assurance that you'll pass along any notable information you get to me.”“This does not and will not impact your life any further. I do not expect you to ignore this but I do expect you to forget,” she replies evenly.Faster than you could react she strikes your chest with an open palm. The last thing you hear before slipping unconscious is,“Embrace eternity.”[1/2]
>>30173937Welcome to Academy City. The time is noon, the weather is pleasant and the date is July 20.You are Kyril Torikov a Level 2 Telekinetic Child Error, and you just downloaded the linchpin of your case against the Graviton bomber. It seems to be a music file and though you haven’t listened to it, you are considering your options at the moment. One, you could palm it off to Nakazawa so that he could pass it on to Anti-Skill as an anonymous tip. The other option was to personally deliver it to an Anti-Skill officer. You recall that your homeroom and physical education teacher, Yomikawa-sensei, was Anti-Skill so that’s who you would go see.>Pass it on to Nakazawa>Deliver it personally
>>30173955>>Pass it on to Nakazawa
>>30173955>>Deliver it personally
>>30173955>Deliver it personally
>>30173955>deliver it personally
>>30173955how much did we forget?
>>30174019Pretty sure that date never happened.
>>30174047that's what I'm afraid of
>>30174098We rolled a 1 and the date is directly connected to how we met her. Yeah, it's gone.
>>30174129maybe it was just that morning that got erased...
>>30174285Clearly. We remembered the URL, right?
Welp, now we need to get Touma to touch our head somehow.
>>30174364we must roll a nat 1 on a high 5
If you wanted something done right, you really should do it yourself, or so the saying goes. That was why you were making your way to your High School to give it to Yomikawa-sensei. She was the other half that kept you on the straight and narrow. Getting caught by your homeroom teacher would spell social suicide. You idly wonder why your life is dictated by women.The stray thought is like corpse gas. It befouls the air a moment and then it disappears. You make your way to the teacher’s office quietly. There are summer classes that are going on today. No point in disturbing those unlucky sods, you decide. Yomikawa-sensei greets you as you enter,“Oh Torikov, I was just about to call you. Sagara has been moved to a different hospital and they wanted me to let you know.”“Thanks for the heads up but I have the Level Upper here,” you hand her the USB stick.“You didn’t try it out did you?” and at your answer she smiles, “Smart. You don’t know what it could do or what it might contain. You may have not heard but it seems Kaitabi fell in to a coma. If it’s connected then you definitely dodged a bullet. We’ll analyse this as soon as possible, in the mean time, why don’t you go visit Sagara. I take it you haven’t seen him in a while.”It seemed like a good idea.>Question Yomikawa-sensei about something>Go see Sagara

>>30174518Are you confirming that one of the deadliest living creatures on Earth is going to be looking for us?
>>30174530Within the context of the quest, you have just found out it is a music file that supposedly raises your Ability by as much as two Levels. And by Ability I mean super powers.
>>30174555I neither confirm nor deny. It's all up in the air really and I am obligated by the previous episode preview to lie about it.
>>30174530This is spoilers from the anime/manga: Level Upper is basically linking Espers (people with powers) for some nefarious purpose. It temporarily boosts the power of the user, before knocking them unconscious and transferring their power to the person who created it. This eventually results in some sort of giant, super-powered fetus thing.Frankly, I'm hoping this is the end of our involvement in the Level Upper arc, because the impact we just had on the Index arc is hilariously huge.
>>30174555I don't see why she would come after us.maybe if Kaur mentioned us in her report, she might question us. or she could just go after Kaur.I'm sure Kyril would do something, if he remembered...>>30174652you think it'd become watchable now?
>>30174680>in b4 we accidently accelerator as a LV 2 or some shit cause why the hell not.
>>30174652>mangaInteresting, what's the name before I decide whether or not to read the spoiler?
>>30174710To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
>>30174710A Certain Scientific Railgun is the source manga for the Level Upper arc. It's a spin-off of the A Certain Magic Index series of light novels. Both have two seasons of anime adaptations. Honestly, if you watch the first episode of Index, it'll be quite apparent just how much we're already fucking with the canon events of the series.
So, what exactly is Kaur planning on doing with Stiyl? Where is she going to take him?
>>30174759It's a quest. Canon goes in a blender on thread one and then we wait to see how quickly we can turn it into a smoothy.
>>30174796the rape dungeon
>>30174807I concur! Fuck the Canon!
>>30174807I'm just worried that the quest is going to turn into a revolving door of Index cameos until we inevitably attack someone that can turn us into mince-meat without trying (like Kanzaki). AC is a big enough place that we don't need to have wrecked two entirely different arcs in the span of a couple days.Plus, if we fuck around with Accelerator, Misaka, or Touma too much, we risk Crowley deciding to off us.
>>30174982'course, living in the same building as Touma might bring its own crazy down on us.
Before you leave you ask Yomikawa-sensei a question,“Is there someone I can see about learning more about Telekinesis?”“So you’re concerned with the theoretical stuff now?” you nod, “Well Komoe-sensei should know someone. She’s busy teaching summer classes though so I don’t know if she’ll have time. You could sit in to talk to her though.”With that you bid her adieu and rush to Sagara’s new hospital as soon as possible. The doctors are all giving you the same look as you walk past them and enter his room. It is quiet save for the machine so you can still hear him mutter something under his breath. Repeating over and over are the same numbers and you had figured it out a while ago. This Kiyama Harumi was somehow connected. The other doctors had told you that only Sagara’s case was unique. Somehow, you knew it wasn’t over even if you did bring the Graviton bomber to justice.Visiting hours were brief and as you leave you noticed that a gaggle of doctors were gathering around a woman. The nametag on her breast spelled out, “KIYAMA Harumi.” When she spots you the hallway goes quiet as she approaches.“Kyril Torikov I presume,” she asks.>Get your answers here>Tactical retreat, get her when’s alone
>>30174759Ok, so read Index before Railgun, got it.

>>30175029>Get your answers here>Tactical retreat, get her when’s aloneLet's combine. See what she wants, then make some sort of arrangement to talk later. Tell her we have to go meet with our teacher.

>>30175018Living next door to a shounen protagonist must be absolute hell.Place is always getting wrecked by the villains of the week and every available girl is too busy drooling over the hero to give you the time of day.>>30175029>>Tactical retreat, get her when’s aloneDoubt she'll give us much info in public.
It seems you wish to get your answers here.>What do you ask Kiyama Harumi? (Write-in)
>>30175269"I have some questions for you but it looks like you're a bit busy at the moment. Would you rather I came back later?"
>>30175269How to treat those who falled to Level Upper.Why she doing this?Ask her to stop.
>>30175269"My friend's talking while unconscious and it appears to be some kind of code. Mind telling me why you're name's encrypted in there?"
>>30175300We have no indication that she's behind this. No need to be rude.
>>30175269Whose waifu did you fuck?
>>30175269"What's this I hear about you being a stripper or something?"
>>30175364And could we join you next time?
“Yes that’s me,” you answer, “and I have some questions for you Kiyama Harumi.”“Of course,” her voice is even, “Ask away and I shall answer to the best of my ability.”“My friend's talking while unconscious and it appears to be some kind of code. Mind telling me why you're name's encrypted in there?”“Is he now?” she seems intrigued, “Well I may be a neurological specialist but that doesn’t mean I know every secret of the human brain. Maybe I should start looking at him first?”“Maybe but that’s not the whole message. It was ‘I fucked you’re waifu, signed Kiyama Harumi,’ so I’d imagine the following question is logical. Whose waifu did you fuck?”You notice some of the doctors snickering.“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” she gives you another dead even stare, “That said it’s really hot here. Stupid black out.”Without realising it or maybe she just doesn’t care, the good doctor starts stripping. Well it certainly was hot in the hospital hallway and the crowd behind her wasn’t helping matters. It also answered your questions about whether she was a stripper or not. One of the female nurses moves quickly to have her clothe herself once more.>Thank Kiyama for her time, leave>Mention the Level Upper to her
>>30175873>>Mention the Level Upper to her
>>30175873>Mention the Level Upper to herWhat the fuck is goin' on man? I'm so lost right now.
>>30175873>Mention the Level Upper to herMight as well.
>>30175873>Mention the Level Upper to her
>>30175913Our comatose buddy has been whispering a code. The code translated to something like "I fucked your waifu, signed Kiyama Harumi." Somehow, Kiyama knows about our involvement with everything.Kiyama is the one that made the Level Upper as part her plan to make an organic super-computer to save some orphans she accidentally got stuck in a coma.
>>30176280does her message mean she did something to Askuka? she's the closest thing we have to a waifuperhaps its a generic taunt
Confirmation of the “Stripping Woman” rumours aside you mention the Level Upper to her. You explain is supposed ability to raise the Level of Ability Users and how you found out it was just a sound file.“A sound file?” Kiyama still has that deadpan down even without most her clothes, “That is interesting. Perhaps it is like brainwashing.”“Affecting a Personal Reality I could understand but how would that explain the coma then?” you wonder.“That is the question then isn’t it?” she agrees, “Perhaps in affects more than just your Personal Reality? Or does it affect the senses in more than one way? Either way you’ve given me a lot to think about.”With that the gaggle of doctors, Kiyama Harumi and yourself exit the building. Your stomach growls as you are reminded that you have not had breakfast, nor lunch.“How about lunch?” she questions, “It will be on me.”She is brandishing a remote, one of the cars in the parking lot beeps. It is a blue Lamborghini Murciélago. Have lunch with Kiyama Harumi?>Yes, get in the car>No, you’re good
>>30176427>>Yes, get in the car
>>30176427>>No, you’re goodlets practice our telekenesis
Fun fact: Kiyama drives a Gallardo in the anime when in the manga she has a Murciélago.
>>30176427>Yes, get in the car>start recording everything covertly with our cell phone
>>30176427>>Yes, get in the carHmm, getting into a car with a strange stripping woman.Seems legit.In all serious, she's our best lead to helping Sagara, so stick with her.
>>30176427>>Yes, get in the car>>30176492We should make a habit of doing this.
>>30176427>Yes, get in the car.She's going to raze and kidnap us if we don't, so might as well go with the flow.
>>30176427>>Yes, get in the carFree Food!
>>30176427>Yes, get in the car>She owns a fucking LamboJesus, we need to be a doctor.
>>30176427>Yes, get in the car.There is absolutely no way in which this could go wrong.
>>30176427my Russian parents always told me to go with strangers who have money
>>30176598Say this out loud. Please say this out loud.
>>30176483Actually now that I look closer, the front bumper doesn't quite match but I wouldn't know if it were one of the later Reventón or even Aventadors. Still it's definitely not a Gallardo in the manga.
Everybody ready to use TK to deploy her airbag? This is going to be just like the fight against Stiyl; we either win on the first move or we lose.
>>30176598>We don't remember our parents>But they did manage to plant one tiny bit of wisdom in our heads>"If you see a stranger with money, get into their car no matter what.">Probably how I ended up here.
>>30176626>>30176598From a meta perspective, it would be better to find a way to mention that we're a child error to garner sympathy with her.
>>30176598replace Russian parents with Russian proverb
Just ask her where the free candy is.
You’re a guy, a male, you know this, and there is no rationalisation in the world that could steer you from this course. After all what guy could resist getting in to an Italian supercar with a hot lady for a free lunch. Earlier, when she stripped, you noted that she had a classy black bra that was probably a size up from Asuka.“You know, this reminds me of this Russian proverb,” you say, “If you see a stranger with money, get in their car.”Kiyama only seems mildly amused as you both hop in. The engine of course is a V12 and all 6.2 Litres of it goes roaring down the highway as you make your way to lunch. You’re not quite sure where you’re headed so you stealthily started recording, just in case.“You’re a Child Error aren’t you?” she asks as she shifts up and hits 120.“Yes,” you answer as you ride out another V12 induced eargasm, “So is my friend Sagara.”“I’ve heard your story,” she overtakes a black Porsche, “So I was wondering about how you’d approach a certain hypothetical situation.”“Purely hypothetically?” you eye her suspiciously but she gives nothing away.“Imagine a teacher in charge of an orphanage, yours if you’re having trouble,” the black Porsche flashes her twice but she doesn’t respond to it, “Now imagine that all their students became stuck in a coma due to an experiment gone horribly right. The question is thus how far should the teacher go for them, her students? Is there a line they shouldn’t cross?”>Answer her question (Write-in)
>>30177169"Depends. Where's the line?"
>>30177169I think that the teacher should't cross a line that the students wouldn't be proud of being saved by their teacher.
>>30177169Putting other kids into comas to wake up the first set seems counterproductive, you're still left with comatose vegetables.
>>30177169"There's always a line."
>>30177169She should not save them if it would make the students disappointed in the methods she used.If she murdered the entirety of Japan to save them, do you truly believe they would approve of such a thing?
>>30177169"She shouldn't put others in a coma trying to help them. Nor should she take away anyone's free will."
>>30177207That's what she's asking us.
>>30177310Don't be too hard on him. Wrenloft is only good for rolling dice or so I'm told.
>>30177169If by helping her students she makes others fall into comas she is going to make those kids guilty by association.
>>30177169Close our eyes, "There's always a line. Just sometimes it gets really hard to know where it is anymore."
Rolled 17>>30177207I don't even... you didn't get her question did you?
>>30177169"Whatever she can live with. Make no mistake, just because something's immoral doesn't mean it's unnecessary. Of course, just because something's necessary doesn't make it moral."
>>30177169"...well, I'd say repeating that mistake, even by accident, wouldn't be good. But I would understand the need to make things right."
>>30177360Kyril is not nearly jaded enough to deliver that line effectively.
>>30177333whoever told you that is wrong
Instead of responding to the question, ask her if she can reverse what has happened to Sagara.There is no right answer to this question. Instead of locking ourselves into being her enemy, let's help her to help Sagara.
>>30177169That depends, how likely would the teacher be able to fix whatever wrong by crossing the said line? After all, if she's successful, then no problem and everything's right in the world...though if she isn't, there would be quite a number of people that will be unhappy about it.Hypothetically, should a friend of the people that was placed in a coma found out about this, what do you think he should do?
>>30177722Or if we have to respond to the question, ask if she can reverse what she did to Sagara. If so, tell her to do it as a gesture of good will, then we'll help her rescue her orphans.
>>30177853And then she puts us in a coma for a few years. In trying to find a cure she's causing the same "success" more often than not.
>>30177897She knows how to reverse the comas caused by Level Upper. She needs the computational ability provided by the Level Upper network to save the orphans.Plus, being on her side means opposing Misaka which means opposing Touma which increases our likelihood of getting him to touch our head.
>>30177975>>30177897Plus, if we can record her admitting to being able to cure the Level Upper victims and being the cause, this gives us another avenue (turning her in).
“There’s always a line,” you answer easily, “Would their students be proud of the lengths she went to help them?”“She tried, all her options were taken and she was backed in to a corner,” Kiyama moves the goal posts.“I’m only talking with my experience and Sagara. Sure I shook up a few punks, left some to their fate but never once did I do something I regret. So maybe at the end of the day, the question was could I live with my choices?”“I know,” she grips the wheels tight, “Sometimes, it gets so hard she can’t remember where the line was at all. If there was one at all.”Between the two of you, you’re aware that this isn’t merely a hypothetical situation. Even if you recorded this, this was inadmissible evidence. It was why she was talking anyway.“What orphanage did you grow up in?” she finally manages after a long silence.“Cypress Park.”“Cypress Park huh?” she wonders aloud, “Perhaps I should send her students there someday.”Dinner with her flew by.Episode 5 end.

You are the Index Librorum Prohitorum, holder of 103,000 magic grimoires banned by the Church. There is currently a black out going on and the guards have switched to flashlights. This makes infiltration easier. Once you’re inside you’ll be home free. Those that are chasing you would give it up and the forbidden knowledge that you contain would be safe for a while longer. The current checkpoint is manned by a lone guard. He’s had a long night you’re sure since he’s reading a magazine with a flashlight in his mouth.Surely you could sneak by him undetected but that would mean remaining at street level. The roof tops were safer for you given that most people didn’t frequent them. Your inventory was nothing but the Walking Church on your back and your only weapon was anything you could get your hands on. Before you proceed you hear another guard approach. He’s knocking on the door and complaining about the light. Shit, you knew if you waited too long things would get harder.How do you approach this?>Stalk>Silence>Strike
>>30178393More like,"Looks like the pyro was tackled off the third floor."*glasses*"Guess he ain't so hot now."YEAAAAAAAHH
>>30178538>StrikeStriking the base of the spine should stop them long enough.
>>30178393>>30178565You're going out on a limb here. Cut to the chase.
>>30178538>StalkAFAIK, Index has no combat skill.
>>30178593Niggas be jelly I got mad krav maga skills

>>30178802There are plenty of better lolis on that showand I'm also one of the 8 people on 4chan that isn't into lolis
As much as subduing or stalking one of the guards was, it was much safer to just leave them alone. God knew you didn’t have quite the power to brute force your way through everything. All it takes is for them to discuss their choice in reading material and you’re through the door that the second guard forgot to close. You’re in to Academy City proper now. That doesn’t quite solve your problem however as you are still in the middle of restricted territory. It doesn’t help that your attire would draw attention.Dodging in to an alleyway, you hear more guards running around and the mentions of a sniper on the roof. That made your infiltration even harder. You couldn’t proceed at foot level without drawing attention so the sniper must be dealt with expediently. Your climb is swift and silent. A few buildings down you see a red light move. It must have been the sniper.>Distract>Disarm>Death from above
>>30178879>>Death from abovetime for Blank impressionHEADBITE!

>>30179217She can't get captured. She definitely makes it to Touma's place, as we already met Stiyl setting up for Innocentus there. This interlude is probably going to be pointless.
Better not try something drastic you think. The sniper is currently standing up and scanning for threats so even if you did, he would probably see it coming. Then he would raise the alarm and that’s something you really don’t want to do right now. The question remained of how to catch his attention for a few seconds, long enough for you to hop out of his line of sight. How were you going to distract him if you had nothing by which to do so?The answer to that question comes relatively soon as a truckload of guards pull up. It seems they were changing shifts. Or maybe they were reinforcements. Either way it didn’t matter. This was a golden opportunity you realise as you pick up a loose brick. There were enough men down there to create their own ruckus and with an underhanded chuck, the brick lands in front of the assembled guards. It is then that they start looking around as the sniper focuses in to one area at a time. You time your jump as he looks away and escape his notice easily.Up ahead you see the final part of the checkpoint. You had to sneak past the gate but there were two guards there. They were slacking in shifts but you notice that there was a small delay in shifting their attentiveness.>Ghost>Panther>Assault
>>30179287>GhostFull white regalia isn't exactly good for sneaking.
Stealth hasn’t failed you so far, miraculously enough. You give a small and silent prayer to God as you approach the final hurdle. You’ve timed them. There is an exactly five second display as one radios the other and look in the same direction. It is almost routine really with a deviation of a minute or two in their shifts of attention. On the next shift, you slip slowly past the first guard who goes to reading another one of those magazines with his flashlight. The second guard hasn’t seen you yet and patiently, you count down the minutes.Slowly, the minutes tick by.“Hey Tanaka, what’s that over there?”Goddamnit!“That?”You braced yourself for discovery but apparently the guards were looking at something else. You don’t look back once you recognise the silhouette of your pursuers. Security would just have to deal with them, you thought as you leapt past again. You’re tired and you’re hungry. The chase had been exhausting but little did you know, it was all going to end.Epilogue complete. GHOST Style mastered. See twitter for next thread.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorNanasen.

>>30179721just how much did Kaur make us forget? wanna hear it from the QM
>>30179764You don't remember.
>>30179764For those who want to be kept in suspense: You haven't forgotten a thing. Your brain's paging file table just has an entry edited is all.
>>30179846So we just have to get Touma to punch us in the face? Awesome!
>>30179846So, the event with Stiyl is simply changed to him being arrested by Kaur without incident?
>>30179846Oh, it's reversible. That's both convenient and disappointing. We're totally going to succeed in resisting Dictator's attempts to force fix that.
>>30179916You think it's probably not important.>>30179921Are you sure you want her to know what is in our mind?
>>30179984>>30179921Touma will fix it for us.But I do agree to another 'date with the dictator'
>>30179984The question is can she handle it?
>>30179984It's more whether I expect her to order us to tell her all,our dirty little secrets or something to that effect.
>>30180023The question is can you handle her reaction?
>>30180099probably like pic
>>30180099What's so bad in his mindbesides all the perverted things he thought of doing with her
>>30180099If Kyril and Touma live in the same complex, which floors are they on and do they ever see each other passing by.
>>30180119Just the fact that he's been mentally interfered with perhaps?>>30180135I recall Touma lives on the second floor. Kyril lives on the first which is not the ground floor mind.
>>30180203Japan uses "ground floor"? I thought that was only britain
>>30180203But what would her reaction be, I mean it's not like it's his fault
>>30180247A lot of places do that. France does, it's called a RDC. Thailand does that. Sweden does that.If anything you are weird for having first floor and ground floor be synonymous.>>30180251Wouldn't you like to find out? We'll get there eventually.
>>30180318I'd prefer to keep having good relations with her, if possible
