Twitter: @HeroRena>Last time on HERO QUEST!>Some stuff happened with Sparkle but none of it's really important, right? No! We're here to deal with the real hero of this tale. RENA THE ROCK!>After recovering from a recent attack by the Mysterious Creature we find a now de-powered Rena facing the most difficult choice of her life.
RM: "Please pick an outfit.""No."RM: "Please pick an outfit.""I'm not wearing either of those."RM: "Pick an outfit, Mistress.""I won't. I'm fine just like this."RM: "My records indicate you have worn similar outfits nearly every day since you started being a hero. Please pick an outfit.""Maybe that's because this is comfortable."RM: "It does not flatter your already modest appearance. Please pick an outfit.""No."Ugh...She's been bugging me about this all day.I like my outfit. And I'm just going to hang out.Also, all her stuff is anniemay stuff.
>>30315198That suit looks classy. Take it.
Just wear the butler suit Rena. At least it's classy.
>>30315198>Robomaid trying to get Rena in a suitEven she thinks you look like a boy.
>>30315198Take that suit.
>>30315198Just pick an outfit. If all she's got is anime stuff look for something from an SoL anime character so it resembles normal-ish clothes.
>>30315198Just put on a sweatshirt in another color.
>>30315198Take the suit, it looks snazzy.
>>30315198Shrine Maiden is best maiden. Wear the outfit of the Glorious Priesthood of Nippon.
>>30315198Gotta go for the suit Rena. Come on, it can be fun to dress up sometimes! Don't we want to look nice for our friends?
>>30315198Wear the clothes Cynthia bought you. You liked those, didn't you?
>>30315198A suit is a suit, even if it is a bit of an annie-may thing. That other outfit just looks weird.
>>30315198Wear the suit, Rena. You'll look snazzy, I promise.
>>30315198>anniemayhey, what do you have against anniemoo?Kubo Tite has some stylin fashions, tell her to pick something out that says "I make my living fighting evil, but I really just want to play dress up."
>>30315198Wear a fancy suit.
>>30315198Go through and find a top you like and some pants you like. Mix and match!If you really have to pick between these two, wear the thing on the left. A suit is too formal for hanging out in.
>>30315198Wear the suit.
>>30315258Then again, the other one looks comfy as fuck. Comf beats class all of the day, bro.
>>30315198They both on and send pictures to Bridgette so she can give you some advice. Tell her you're leaning towards the suite.
Wear something with a scarf.Scarves are cute.
>>30315198That non-suit one is, like, I dunno something I'ev seen swordfighters wear. That's pretty cool.
I'm not seeing any pants for that suit.Is it one of those suit top + skirt outfits or whatever?
>>30315198Do the usual, if you must change outfit, she must too. Take suit, her miko outfit.
>>30315255Whatever happened to those clothes, anyways?
>>30315282I can't quite make out the fine details, but a cursory examination seems to indicate that the other choice is a Miko/Shrine-maiden outfit.Probably very comfy, but perhaps a bit out of place?
>>30315198get bridgette/cynthia's advice.Also where is Monster Sparkle at?
>>30315348>but perhaps a bit out of place?He said, while talking to the robotic maid as a formerly shapeshifting daughter of The Original Monster awaits nearby.>>30315299It looks sort of like what that S-Class Bear guy wears.
FINE I'LL WEAR THE STUPID SUIT.>Rena snatches the suit out of Robomaid's hands and changes into it. She stomps back into the living room and holds out her arms."There! Better?"RM: "... Actually, you may wish to reconsider. I do not wish to imply that you are not appealing to the eyes but the suit diminishes your already subpar curves."I think she just called me ugly but in a really smart alecky way.
>>30315411NOPEIT'S ON NOWWE'RE LIVING WITH IT
>>30315411Screw her, just put on a bikini and a cape.
>>30315411IT LOOKS GREAT ON YOU, KEEP IT
THE SWEATER WAS CUTE
>>30315411YOU HAD IT COMING.NOW GIT IN THE SHRINE MAIDEN COSTUME FLATTY
>>30315411You should go shopping, with like, Anti-Hero or someoneRobo maid is invited, but might get ganked
>>30315411Eehh. Get something a little flashy. You're looking too butch in that.
>>30315411"Ugh, why'd you even pick out the suit if you thought it made me look ugly?! This is stupid!"
>>30315411Well, we could always go back to wearing the hoodie.
>>30315411Wear the suit anyways! That will show her!
>>30315411RM my curves are nonexistent. There is nothing to diminish. I might as well just keep the suit.
>>30315411Im wearing this, grrrr!Then come shopping with me next time!
>>30315411Loose the tie, pop the top two, no, three buttons of that shirt, and start doing enough exersive to build up your curves in the back.
>>30315411It's beautiful...Call Bridgette to see if she wants to go see a movie with you.
>>30315411Is the shirt collared? Loosen it and the tie.And find some pocky or something, go for the delinquent look.
>>30315411Yeah, like big baggy pants and a top like the maid outfits would do anything better for us. That suit makes our hips and thighs look ROCKING.
>>30315411Too bad! I'm wearing this, deal with it.
>>30315411"If you didn't like the suit then you shouldn't have made it an option!"
>>30315411I hate to say it Rena but I think she's right. Maybe try something a bit more girly.
>>30315411Rena has a very sprite-y, pixie-esque body.I think it looks cute on her.So would a Tinkerbell outfit
>>30315411She said it makes you look like a guy.Make her wear the suit then if she likes it so much. You can either grab the robe thing or Cynthia's clothes.
>>30315411Apply hat. Make her wear something too.
>>30315411You know what you need to do?GO SHOPPING.
>>30315411I think the suit could work with a little adjusting but I agree with RM. You look like a dude.
>>30315411Fuck her, wear the suit. You should get a second opinion anyway, ask Bridgett.
>>30315488Robo Maid, plsplsyes
>>30315411Wear the suit.
>>30315517Shopping for... Enhancements~?
>>30315411"This is dumb, at least my sweatshirt is armored! AND it has an R on it when I transform!"
>>30315544But Rena won't be Rena with... Enhancements!
>>30315411Damn, Rena, a hypothetical monsterboy toddler looks more girly than you. How does that make you feel?
>>30315568>that long hairthat's no boy
>>30315517We already did, though. With Cynthia. That's when we learned about the whole ghoul thing.
>>30315411Just ask Robomaid to throw in a few darts on the coat to emphasize our waist and hips and we should be fine.
>>30315568hey, he's got sparklegenes.that's hardly fair.and he's not hypothetical!
>>30315544Rena could give two toots about enhancements, but she COULD use something with more utility. And Robomaid can worry about making whatever she picks something more fashionable
>>30315587It's infused with MGS's cuteness, what do you expect?
>>30315560I personally wouldn't mind if Rena had more hips
>>30315612...Fine. But only a little.
>>30315588Yeah, but that was shopping shopping. This is shopping... with purpose.>>30315568hypothetical nothing. MS is future canon.
>>30315612NO!Rena must stay flatter than a surfboard.
Oh no she didn't..."Did you just say I look like a dude?"RM: "I implied it."----------------------------------------------------------->Rena grumbles a bit as she leaves Robomaid behind. She's ditched the overcoat of the suit and just kept the rest on.I shouldn't be so hard on her, I know... She was just trying to help.I've just been feeling really irritable all week and I don't know why.
>>30315612Well, too bad. Rena is flat and hipless.
>>30315411Dis she just say you have no figure? She just said you have no figure.TOO BAD, WE KNOW BETTER.STRUT THAT STUFF.STRIKE A POSE.WE KNOW WE HAVE IT.
>>30315648is it your time of the month?
>>30315648Admit it, you know why you're irritable.I still vote for shopping with Anti-Hero
>>30315666>STRIKE A POSE.Satan, you're talking about a woman that doesn't know what a lesbian is.
>>30315648I like how either sometime during their time together, Rena had to come up with the Sad Box to put RM in, or she just always had a Sad Box.
>>30315648Rena, continue your training.
>>30315648Well, with your lack of hips and chest you do make for a good reverse-trap. Some people are into that.Anyway, what's eating at you? Missing the powers?
>>30315648are you grumpy because you keep your maid in the sad box?Or because you will never have a baby as cute as sparkle's?Or is it because of the S-rank high chance of dying thing?Or is it because you've not hung out with bridgette in a long time?
>>30315648Face it, you look kinda androgynous with that suit on. You look cute, sure, but kinda like a cute boy instead of a cute girl.
>>30315684Can we activate Montage Mode for that?50% more progress in 20% of the time!>>30315688>Some people are into that.I know I am.
>>30315648That time of the month?Anyway, what are you dressing up for? Something happen today?
>>30315648you know what really lifts your spirits and removes irritation?working outget them pushups, situps, and squats dun gurl
>>30315648It's because you haven't been EXERCISING. Go jog. Right now.EVERY SINGLE DAY RENAEVERY SINGLE DAY
>>30315688She's still upset from when Sparkle told her off
>>30315648Research the word "lesbian". Sparkle SAID what it was, but it helps to be certain. So be SCHOLARLY about it and use the internet.
>>30315648Let her out of the sad box if she tailors the vest to emphasize your waist a little bit.
>>30315648Go buy some tampons and ice cream.
>>30315648Magical Shark Week
>>30315648cos you fucked up with bridgette and sparkle called you out on itstop being dense and ask her if she wants to go out with you
>>30315722For Rena, every day is leg day.I really don't want to imagine Rena with a cute muscular toosh and nice thighs, she's too pure for that.
>>30315725>Research the word "lesbian".
>>30315648You look like the Doctor.
>>30315648You're pregnant with MM+'s monster baby. Ovipositors dude.
>>30315749>>30315751Rena: INTERNET SEARCH lesbian subtext
>>30315648Let's go see Bridgette, she always makes us feel better. Maybe we can convince her to cook for us.
>>30315648Maybe it was what Sparkle said?Honestly, your denseness has almost made me write you off as a lost cause at times.Would have entirely but you proved capable of innuendo when drunk.Hey, maybe you should go get drunk.
>>30315648go prep up for your show ellen.
>>30315798Just induce a constant state of intoxication.It's the only way.
I swear some days the voices in my head are worse than others.I'm not mad at anything in particular, I think. Just... Everything.And I already did my stupid training this morning. Without my powers it's a huge pain, though.>>30315725But, why?>>30315711Hmph...>>30315710YOU'RE NOT HELPING!RM: "Mistress.""WHAT!?"RM: "You told me to remind you when it's 2PM. It is 2PM. You need to be at Bridgette's at 2:30PM if you wish to arrive right on time."Oh, right."Thanks Robomaid. You can leave the box."RM: "Thank you."Alright... Maybe some good food will make me feel better.Anything else I need before I head off?
>>30315857Grab one of your hats
>>30315857Tell RM to wear the robe thing. Just because.
>>30315857Check your plant to see if it's produced any flowers.If so, you can pin one to your lapell.If not, scold it for not being productive.
>>30315857Make sure you've got your communicator.
>>30315857Get a hat and get a hat to gift Bridgette.
>>30315857That gift you totally bought for Bridgette while we were gone.
>>30315857Check on your cat.
>>30315857Have her tailor the outfit a bit to bring out your curves, and bring some kind of dessert.
>>30315857>I already did my stupid training this morning. Without my powers it's a huge pain, though.That's the point, Rena. That's how you know it's working.
>>30315857Wait how is Kitty doing
>>30315857Booze.Just in case Bridgette doesn't have enough. You need like, an entire liquor store's worth.
>>30315857Bring some cleaning supplies.
>>30315923>>30315857SHIT!ARE YOU GRUMPY BECAUSE KITTY IS MISSING?
>>30315857>But why?Because it has upset your world view. Because it's caused you cognitive dissonance. Because you're going to be upset about it until you accept it. And, on the off chance that Sparkle lied, you feel better because it turns out that wasn't true at all!
>>30315857Don't forget to wear a hat. You'll look like a detective!
>>30315857A gift. Some fuzzy animal toy thing.
>>30315857A new set of superpowers, baby. Your ranking makes you a very juicy target.
>>30315857A gift.Maybe some new shoes?And take some tampons. Trust me.
>>30315857Acquire proper headpiece, pet kitty, leave late.
>>30316024Vigorously stroking the kitty has proven to relieve stress, calm nerves and improve stamina.
>>30315857You've been irritable ever since you lost your vampire powers, haven't you? That was around the time you used that dark magical device. Maybe it had some effect on your emotions.
>>30316078Probably the sudden blood loss.Yaknowwutahmsayin?
>>30316078Oh shit. Magical girl withdrawal?
>>30315943yeah! like Harry Dresden and his trademark hat!
>>30316078I'd be worried about after-effects from the loss of the Dhampir powers.
>>30316111You know, despite all the covers having him in a hat, I can't really remember any time he is described as wearing one. Now, his duster and jeans on the other hand, those get mentioned all the time.
It's funny how Robomaid got Rena to dress up for her date with Bridgette.
>>30316078... Maybe. I don't know. Bluh.>>30315955I wish.>>30315948>>30315909Of course! Almost forgot the Stuffed Bat Plushie I got her. I think she likes bats. I'm not really sure.>>30315924And... Booze, I guess? Robomaid has a crapton of sakay.>>30315892>Rena checks on her plant. It has still yet to flower. She waters it a bit, the bone dry soil eagerly soaking up any water she give it.Work harder, plant. You've been like this for years.>>30315911Kitty is fine and dandy.>She pets kitty a bunch. He purrs and she does feel just a little better.>Rena packs her stuff, grabs a hat, and heads off to Bridgette's. She knows the path by now and within minutes she's at the Villain's home. Bridgette welcomes her inside and Rena sees the place is... Only somewhat messy. Some effort has been made to clean the place. It's not Rena-Tier clean but it's decent.B: "I was just about to start cooking. Uhm... anything in particular you want?"
>>30316136"You."Sweep her off her feet and kiss her like a proper 1950's house husband.
>>30316136Lasagna, duh.GODDAMNIT BRIDGETTE MAKE A MOVE ALREADY, RENA NEEDS A PICK-ME-UP.
>>30316136I've been eating frozen lasagna for years.Surprise me!
>>30316136Holy shit, your costume got huge.
>>30316136>B: "I was just about to start cooking. Uhm... anything in particular you want?"Lasagna of course.With a side of garlic bread.Don't say chicken leg.
>>30316136"Maybe some ramen. Or spaghetti. Something with noodles. Nice place, by the way.""Hey, have you been feeling odd lately?"
>>30316136"I've been feeling kind of down, so if you've got anything good for cheering people up, that would be nice."I'm sure happiness via food is a thing.
>>30316181You have to take off the hat in put it on the coat-rack first.
>>30316136>B: "I was just about to start cooking. Uhm... anything in particular you want?"Mix it up a bit, ask for Spaghetti and Meatballs.
>>30316136Wow, this place looks cleaner than usual! Did your family help out?
>>30316136Rena are you sure that is a living plant and not just a stick poking out of some dirtAlso try something other than Lasagna for once, let Bridgette surprise you.
>>30316169>>30316188>>30316195Rena is morphing into garfield
>>30316194holy shit you're right
>>30316136"You. Oh, wait, you meant to eat, right?"
>>30316207Okay, first the hat, then the-Wait, she needs to be in an apron.Have her go put on an apron.THEN dip-and-kiss.
>>30316132That's the joke. He never wears one.
>>30316136"Lasagna I guess."
>>30316188I have a feeling she's going to have to lay it on thick if she ever wants to prove to QK she don't need no contract to get Rena's attention.
>>30316136Say you'd like to... try something new.
>>30316181Support, bite her neck.
>>30316136Complain about the lack of leads to investigate.
>>30316216But we don't know the formula-oli
>>30316136Hug Bridgett, you're in a bad mood and she's your best friend. Hugs can only help.
>>30316136For fucks-KISS HER, YOU FOOL.GIRLS CAN LOVE GIRLS. IT'S TOTALLY A THING. YOU LIKE ROMANCE, RIGHT?
>Rena puts her hat up on a hat rack. Gotta be classy.>>30316217I'm pretty sure it's a plant. I know what a plant looks like."Hmm... I'd like to... Try something new."B: "Oh? Like..?""Let's try something we haven't before.">Rena smiles at Bridgette. The thought of her cooking something new is already lifting her spirits.B: "... Like..?""Well... Surprise me."B: "...... We're talking about food, right?""Of course. You've made lasagna a bunch of times. This time I wanna try something new."B: "Right... Okay.">Bridgette goes into the kitchen and puts on her apron. Rena can see her pulling out flour and other ingredients she can't easily identify."Your place is looking pretty clean. Did your family help you out?"B: "No. I know how to clean, you know.""Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to like-"B: "Though, big sis did help out a little.">Rena laughs and sits down on the couch, careful not to disturb the bowl of chips nearby.
>>30316408MAKE SOME MOVES, RENALIKE HAND HOLDING
>>30316408YesssHelp us broaden our horizons bridgetteWe are food plebians
>>30316408Ask Bridgette about lesbian overtones.
>>30316408>... so when you asked if we were speaking about food>How do you feel about double entendres?
>>30316408Ask her about lesbian undertones. You're terrible about spotting them, maybe she can help you?
>>30316408There's no sense of awkward worse than when the person causing it is unaware of it.
>>30316408Does Bridgette have some music that you can turn on? There's nothing like quality music to improve an evening.I hear Frank Sinatra is pretty good.
>>30316408Compliment her work and say that you can't wait to see what she comes up with.Making other people happy always makes you happy. Well, that and tearing into those chips.
>>30316408God... fucking... damn it, Rena, you dense bitch.
>>30316408Ask about lesbians. We, I mean it's, going to nag at you forever until you get this whole thing sorted out.
>>30316447Michael Buble is more likely
>>30316408Ask her if she thinks you're dense. Sparkle seemed pretty adamant.
>>30316408Ask about lesbian undertones.What could go wrong?
>>30316408Have some chips. Not too much though, don't spoil your appetite.Ask Bridgette if she's caused any good mayhem lately.
>>30316408>careful not to disturb the bowl of chips nearby.I think you know what needs to be done.
>>30316408This is going to be almost painful to watch.I just know it.Step op your game, Bridgette. Rena is not someone you wait on to make a move.
>>30316472That would be fine too.
Actually, how has Bridgette been adjusting to her leg?Feel free to ask her about it if you don't know.It looks cool.
>>30316408"Bridgette, when I was fighting cosplay lass she mentioned something called lesbian overtones in some anniemay. Could you explain what lesbian overtones are? It's been on my mind all week, ugh.
>>30316472Bobby Darin can't be beat.Play some Mack the Knife.
>>30316408>the bowl of chipsjust one Rena just one
GIVE HER A KISS.ANY KIND. JUST DO IT.
>>30316408begin working on chips
>>30316474This. Ask her how she feels about you.
OP the thread is approaching critical levels of sexual frustration, I recommend a quick interlude into the romantic romps of any one of the sexually active hero(ines) to relieve the pressure.
>>30316545anon we JUST did that last thread.I mean did you see those cuddles?though I really want to know what happened to caffornicator
>>30316545in other words "what happened to caffornicator"
>>30316545Nope, we gotta stick it through to the end.
Guys. Give the lesbian stuff a break.Rena isn't going to act on those suggestions without good reason. At least wait for Bridgette to make things more obvious or be a littler smarter about it.
>>30316424You sick etc.
>>30316408Rena? Isn't it a little hot in here? Why don't you ditch the tie and open your collar a bit?
No, Rena, resist the chips!. You don't want to spoil your appetite before your certainly delicious mystery meal, and you need to save room for dessert.And by dessert I mean Bridgette
>>30316408GoddamnitRena, this is important. Your density is reaching levels which are dangerous to the fabric of reality. I'm talking neutron stars, here. Black holes!You need to kiss Bridgette. On the lips. For a period longer than 30 seconds. If you do that, there's a good chance you will finally understand the true meaning of lesbians. This is the only way you can save the world. Don't you want to save the world, Rena?
>>30316455Hell yeah, doritos.>Rena helps herself to some chips and Bridgette cooks. Already she can smell the delicious food coming from the kitchen.Hmm... I don't see any music related devices."So, cause any mayhem lately?"B: "Huh? Oh, nothing lately. I've been getting used to the new leg.""Oh? How's that going? Does it feel weird? Does it itch?"B: "Nah. It feels almost like my old leg. Maybe a little too strong? Best part is I can stub my little toe into things and it doesn't hurt. I have to take it apart and clean it every once in a while though. But it's pretty cool.""Man, I wish I had robot legs. With thrusters. I would just fly everywhere. That would be so cool.">>30316477"Hey, Bridgette."B: "Hmm?""What's a lesbian overtone?">Rena hears a clatter as something drops onto the oven. There's a burst of flame and she can hear Bridgette screaming.OH GOD EVERYTHING IS ON FIREWHY IS THIS HAPPENING!?
>>30316603Use your water powers to put out the fire!
>>30316603WHY DID YOU ASK THIS SPARKLE ALREADY EXPLAINED IT
>>30316603Well... I think >>30316566 was right. This was NOT the time to ask. Sorry, Rena!
>>30316603Grab the extinguisher!
>>30316603THROW A ROCK AT THE FIRE, FUCK
>>30316603THROW A ROCK AT THE FIRE
put it out!
>>30316603FIRE EXTINGUISHERFIND ONE
>>30316603ATTEND TO BRIDGETTESHE IS BURNING IN AN OILFIRE
>>30316603Fuuuuck. It's an apartment, there has to be a fire extinguisher somewhere! Whatever you do, don't put water on the oil fire!
>>30316603Get Bridgette out of there and put out any fire on her, NOW! You can worry about the rest of it later, but your friend is in danger!
>>30316603I guess Bridgette's Ex just walked inAC-Guy
>>30316603Fire extinguisher! Find a fire extinguisher!
>>30316603Oh, yeah. That could go wrong.What are you waiting for? GO SAVE HER!
>>30316603Oh god GET THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER
>>30316603smother the flames!fire extinguisher maybe!panic!
>>30316603holy shit what are you doing not already grabbing a fire extinguisher oh fuck
>>30316603Smother, don't put water on an oil fire! Use a blanket from the couch or something and wrap her up in it!
>>30316603Bridgette's on fire. Priority 1 is putting her out as quickly as possible without hurting her. Then put out any other fires in the room.
>>30316641damp towel over the pot to starve it of oxygen, attend to bridgette
>>30316642Oh god you're right TEND TO BRIDGETTE FIRST.
>>30316603Save Bridgett! You're a hero, right? Then get your ass in there and rescue the fuck out of her!
How would you all react if this quest took a very Vonnegut twist?Kilgore Trout levels of VonnegutCould he pull it off?
>Rena throws a rock at the fire!THAT DIDN'T WORK!>She searches for the nearest fire extinguisher and uses it to smother the flames, Bridgette, and most of the kitchen.Got it!>Bridgette seems mostly unharmed but is now a bit foamy. The foam slowly dissipates and Bridgette stares at the charcoaled remains of their meal.B: "Well... That sucked.""Are you okay?"B: "I'm fine.""Is the food okay?"B: "I'm afraid we lost it.""Noooooo...."This is horrible...
>>30316772Apologize. I don't think there's much else to do at this point.
>>30316772order pizza! movie night! ask about lesbian overtones again!
>>30316772...would it be a good idea to go out to eat?
>>30316772Well, fuck it.You're already well dressed. Take Bridgette to a fancy restaurant to make up for this.
>>30316772HUGS.HUGS FOR COMFORT
>>30316772"Uh, sorry. Want to order something?">>30316746I don't think Larro is about to start talking about how many miles wide his penis is
>>30316772LET'S GO OUT TO EAT
>>30316772You need to clean the kitchen now, Rena. It is penance for distracting Bridgette with silly questions during what was obviously a critical cooking moment.Also offer to buy more ingredients. In fact, restock her entire kitchen. You can certainly afford it.
>>30316772Hug Bridgette and tell her it's okay. She has had a rougher week than you, seeing as she lost her leg along with some of her powers.
>>30316772Give it a proper burial. Tell Bridgette that you're just glad she wasn't hurt. Much. Tell her about what Sparkle said about you, like ask if you're really that dense.
>>30316772Tell her to put something nice on, because we're going to the fanciest restaurant in town.
>>30316772Go out to eat.
>>30316805This quest doesn't run on FATAL?>>30316772hug her
>>30316772Go out for dinner instead.
>>30316772Got out to a fancy restaurant to eat clams!
>>30316799VERY MUCH THIS
>>30316815>Also offer to buy more ingredients. In fact, restock her entire kitchen. You can certainly afford it.This and offer to take her out to a fancy restaurant to make up for the almost-immolation.I'm saying this because I'm convinced we'll get a cute incident where the waitress/someone mistakes Rena for Bridgette's boyfriend.
>>30316772Apology and fancy restaurant is go. No reservation? DOESN'T MATTER YOU'RE RENA THE ROCK.
>>30316772Apologise. Ask if she wants to go to a restaurant. Something fancy, maybe.
>>30316772Cry into Bridgette's shoulder. Tell her you're sorry and that the loss of her delicious food is your fault.
>>30316772Treat her to a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant,. you're already dressed for it.And have her dress up too.And then ask her about lesbian overtones again.
>>30316772"Well, as long as you're okay, I'm happy.""Sorry about, um, distracting you."
>>30316772Step 1:HugsStep 2: Take Bridgett to a fancy restaurant
>>30316772Apologize, clean up, and pay for a fancy dinner at a restaurant.
>>30316820Yea, unlike Rena, who lost... all her powers. Rena is now only good at throwing things. Rena: mope about losing all your powers.Maybe if Rena got cooler things to throw she'd be able to survive better now?
>>30316848>And then ask her about lesbian overtones again.No no no, there's no need to ask about those, she'll learn about them soon enough if she pulls off the dinner.
>>30316821>Tell Bridgette that you're just glad she wasn't hurt.this at least
>>30316872She can regain her vampire powers whenever she wants. Bridgette can't, which is to say nothing of the lost leg.
>>30316873No, she won't. She explicitly needs them pointed out until she learns to recognise them herself.
>>30316772Rena, whatever you do make sure you don't use the phrase "eat out," after lesbian overtones caused food to combust you really don't want to risk anything else.
>>30316901>She can regain her vampire powers whenever she wants.Actually, I'm curious. Did Rena actually look into whether this is really possible or not?
>>30316906No no, here's how it plays out.Rena treats Bridgette to a good time. They go out to a fancy restaurant, maybe even get ice cream.When they get back to Bridgette's place, *then* she asks Bridgette what a lesbian undertone is, and if the mood is right Bridgette might give her a demonstration.
>>30316929Cynthia offered to help Rena experiment if she wanted to.
>>30316772don't talk about lesbian overtones any more.
>>30316929MM+ made the offer.
>>30316772Take her out. Ask why she freaked out.
>>30316943>>30316926Let's face it, Rena will never understand what lesbian overtones are, even if she were to get a hands-on demonstration.
>>30316943>>30316970 is exactly right. We have a graphic firsthand demonstration of how well this works out in practice.
>>30316949>>30316957exactly, and we've not been here all this time. So I'm asking whether Rena actually investigated this or not.
>>30317003The pic's a joke. I'd rather see it actually happen before claiming she wouldn't get it.
>>30316842>spoilerAll the mild irritations come to a head, leading to Rena snapping at the waitress..."AUGH. I'm a GIRL, and that means I'm her GIRLFRIEND and that's final!"And thus, not noticing Bridgette's atomic blush, Rena smiles to herself, satisfied that she's totally cleared up the gender misunderstanding.
>>30317027the quest is a comedy questit's full of jokes
>>30317048ur a joke
"I'm really just glad you weren't hurt. I'll replace all the stuff that was burned."B: "Like my heart?""Huh?"B: "Nothing. It's fine, I can pay for the stuff. It's only a pan and some pasta stuff. It's fine.""But I need to repay you for almost killing you somehow. I know! How about I take you out!"B: "Take me out?""Yeah! Go get something fancy and we'll go to the best food place in town!">Bridgette considers it for a moment then agrees. She heads off to her room and steps out again wearing a nice dress."Wow! That's new."B: "Sis got it for me...""It looks great on you! I don't think I could pull off a dress."B: "Thanks..."===============================>The two of them go to the best diner in the city. The place is normally not available for sudden nights out but Rena the Rock is welcomed with open arms. The two of them are given the best seat in the house and handed their menus."Hmm hmm hmm... What to get~ So many delicious options~"B: "So...""Hmm?"B: "You're S-Class. I made it to A, myself. I think we could still fight each other and stuff. If you want to.""Sure!"B: "But you don't have any powers now... Right? I heard you lost them all. If I fought you I might end up killing you. I don't think you'll even stay in S-Class for much longer."I think she's mad about something.
>>30317062well, they won't really let me have a demotion.I don't like hero boss.
>>30317062>I think she's mad about something.Well, then ask her! Beating around the bush just ends up with everyone frustrated.
>>30317062She's just being super tsundere right now, Rena. Don't worry about it.
>>30317062Ask what she's mad about, then.The only way this is ever going to happen is if she makes a move.
>>30317062Well, we still have those super power drugs.
>>30317062>Hero Association>DemotionsThe two of you can be together without fighting, just look at this
>>30317062"Well, I'm doing Saitama's work-out to make up for the powers and I think the position is permanent."
>>30317062Ask her what's bothering her.>>30317085>She's just being super tsundere right nowSounds like someone is too anime to drive.
>>30317062Tell her you never asked for this.Then ask her IF SHE THINKS YOU'RE DENSE.
>>30317062Tell her not to underestimate you. You ranked up pretty fast without those powers, didn't you? Also you have the upgraded uniform to protect you so you probably won't die or anything.Ask her if she knows of any other way to get stronger that doesn't involve going through that ghoul nonsense.
>>30317062"I've made it to A rank with no powers! granted it was misunderstanding but that's what Big Boss does best! completely overestimate heroes abilities!"
>>30317062"Well, if it's you, I wouldn't mind losing. After all, you're my nemesis! You're somebody very important to me."
>>30317062She's clearly trying to feel better about herself by knowing she still has powers and Rena doesn't.
>>30317062Bah it's nothing.Order a plate of clams with lemon butter.
>>30317062>I don't think you'll even stay in S-Class for much longer.I'm told there's only one way out of S-Class. I'd rather not take it.
>>30317137>Bearded clams with lemon butterFTFY
>>30317062ask her about what has her angry.>"Like my heart?"also that.
>>30317062order FANCY ITALIANor PLEB FRIED FOOD
>>30317062Rena. STOP. THINK. PROCESS EVERY COMMENT AT LEAST TWICE.Take your time.
Well the lesbian joke got me pretty well. >>30317062Need to relax and just enjoy the meal.
>>30317062ASK HERSHE HAS CLEARLY FALLEN IN LESBIANS WITH YOU
>>30317062Ask what's wrong.
>>30317137That doesn't sound good.>Rena instead orders a hamburger and french fries. Bridgette orders herself some kind of mushroom and steak deal. Rena regrets her choice."I'm not gonna go down without a fight, Bridgette. I didn't lose all my powers. I'm about as strong as I was before I suddenly ranked all the way up. I think if we fought again it would be a great match!"B: "Hmph. Yeah.""Is there something wrong?"B: "No. I'm fine.">Rena nods and fiddles around with her utensils a bit."...... Do you think I'm dense?"B: "... What? Are you serious? Are you seriously asking me that?"
>>30317268YES, YOU ARE.Follow through. Don't back out now..
>>30317268We're trying to help you RenaYou aren't called the Rock for nothing
>>30317268Yes.WE ARE THE ROCK. WE ARE THE DENSEST. MAXIMUM ROCK. MAXIMUM DENSITY.
>>30317268>Recount the argument with Sparkle>Get emotional"I don't want to lose you. Whatever I did to upset you, I'm sorry... I just don't know what I did..."
>>30317268Is that why they decided to call me Rena the rock?
>>30317268well, sparkle yelled at me for it the other day, and it's been bothering me since.
>>30317268Drop it, your fine the way you are. Your funny!
>>30317268"Yes, I am. Magical Girl Sparkle said I was, and... it sort of got to me. I'm starting to wonder if she was right."
>>30317268"Well, everyone else says I am. Even the voices in my head."Rena, I'm sorry. But I think someone's going to yell at you again. Has to be done. Hopefully things will mover forward after this.Take it away, Bridgette.
>>30317268"Yes, I am, because I barely understand what's going on and I don't know if I'm hurting feelings and I just want everyone to be happy and I'm scared I'm missing something important and no one will tell me and aaaaaaaa"
we need to chill it on the sexual misunderstanding jokes for a while
>>30317268It's too late now. It's finally happening.Don't blow it, Bridgette. We've been trying to manufacture this scenario for almost 20 threads now. Don't fuck this up. Don't fuck it up!
>>30317310>>30317352Something like this works.
>>30317362That's kinda what we're trying to do here.I feel sorta bad for Bridgette now, despite her being a fictional character.
>>30317364Hi I am Rena.What is not fucking up?
>>30317268So the rock is finally cracking?I feel disappointed
>>30317268"...Okay, you're right. I'm sorry that I didn't notice your feelings sooner."Let's just get it out there. It'll be better to do it now than to put it off.
>>30317352>>30317310I like these. These are good. Do these.
>>30317362This really isn't jokes anymore. /tg/'s basically trying to brute force the denseness out of Rena by giving Birdgette the opportunity to lay it out in the open.
>>30317393>Finally>Twenty threads>Implying Larro will actually let it happen
>>30317268Sparkle called me dense, and so did Cosplay Lass. It was around the time lesbian overtones came up. I was wondering if they were right.
>>30317405I wish they didn't brute force it, but whatever.
>>30317364Seriously, it's time that we stop leading this girl on.Down periscope, dive dive dive! The /u/boats are on the hunt!
>>30317399We should stop panicking in response to stress. A hero should be in control of their life.
>>30317268Translated: "Yes you are super dense Rena and I am frustrated as hell with you."You're on thin ice, Rena. Think carefully about why she would react like this. It's because she's been trying to tell you something and you've been too dense to see it. Come on, "like my heart"? Reacting like that to "lesbian overtones"? She likes you dammit! If you can't pick up on that soon she won't like you anymore!
>>30317423It's not really forcing it, goddamnit. She's been told twice, once by a close friend, that she's dense as her main weapon.
>>30317268Make your excuses and leave, Rena.... but cover the bill on your way out.
>>30317430>Rena, what are you doing?>Hero Stuff.>Why are you doing hero stuff at 4 o'clock in the morning?>Because I've lost control of my life.
>>30317423I think the main reason they're trying to force it so hard is they don't see any other way to get Rena to realize it.
"Well Sparkle said that I can be like that sometimes and I don't want to hurt you by being like that and I'm so sorry...">Rena starts to tear up again. Bridgette looks like she's about to say something at her. There's a flash of anger but the sight of a trembling Rena causes her to stop.>She just sighs and puts on a smile.B: "You can be a bit dense, but you're fine.">Their food comes and the two of them begin to eat.I think she's better now.I'll try and be less dense, I suppose.But I don't even get what that means.Still, at least she looks happy now.
>>30317352>>30317310I like these.
>>30317423Everything else has been tried multiple times, and failed.The only option left is a synchronised /u/-boat strike against the bulwark of Rena's density.
>>30317496Ask her what she meant about her heart earlier. Because she should probably get some medical attention if her heart got burnt.
>>30317496Sad kitty mode Rena go.Maybe ask Robomaid when you get in.
>>30317496BRIDGETTEYOU FUCKED IT UPHOW COULD YOU FUCK IT UPWHY DID YOU FUCK IT UP
>>30317519just stop trying to make lesbians, anon.There's enough of that with caffornicator/MM+
>>30317496Tell Bridgette that she is the best thing that's ever happened to you.:3, or should that be for after dinner.
>>30317496We never got our answer to that lesbian overtones question.And what was that thing about her heart? Does she need a new mechanical heart too?
>>30317496>dense>adjective>means : stupid; slow-witted; dull.Ouch.
>>30317268"...I am. Bridgette, I don't mean to be. I just am! I'd like to be a better friend, just tell me what I have to- no, how I can figure out what I have to do."
>>30317496SHE LIKES YOU, DAMNIT.SHE FREAKED OUT OVER THE LESBIAN COMMENT.SHE WAS WAITING FOR YOU TO SAY YOU WANTED TO EAT HER WHEN YOU ASKED ABOUT FOOD.SHE'S MAD AT YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE PRACTICALLY ON A DATE WITH HER AND YOU DON'T EVEN REALIZE IT.
>>30317496Thank her for being such a wonder and understanding nemesis.
>>30317429Depth Chages dispelled the /u/ boats for now.>>30317496Enjoy the meal, play video games.Watch the Walking Dead!
>>30317496Eat food.Talk to her about all the S class heroes you met.Ask her if anything interesting has been going on in the monster family.
>>30317541Because Larro hates us and refuses to allow Rena to grow.I think.
>>30317496HeyHey RenaYou're on a date with Bridgette.RIGHT NOW.
>>30317547>>30317564This.Just move on. We can't force this so stop trying.Let Bridgette do it when she's ready.
>>30317496Ask her if she likes you.Ask her if she like-likes you.
>>30317582>>30317541anon, just chill on the lesbians
>>30317496Let her know that throwing a rock in her face ended up being the best thing that ever happened to you.
>>30317496"Bridgette, I don't always get things right away, okay? And sometimes I miss things that are right under my nose, even if other people think they should be obvious. Heck, that's part of how I got into heroing in the first place. So just... let me know if I'm missing something that I should get, okay? Even if you have to be blunt about it, I'd rather not feel like I'm being dumb. Not around you."
>>30317496Let's play video games! Watch the Million Dollar Man
>>30317496That was close.Ask if she thinks you should take Cynthia up on her vampire powers offer.
>>30317547>>30317564>>30317568>>30317573>>30317589This. Just move on for now and chill out. Bridgette's going to have to do this herself. Not us.
>>30317496Enjoy having a meal at a resturaunt.A fancy one.With lobsters.
>>30317496Nope.I'm done.I am so done.Rena can die alone. I'm just going to stand on the sidelines and mock her from now on. This is what you've wrought, Rena. Even the voices in your head are mocking your density.
>>30317596Why? Bridgette's clearly into Rena from our perspective, and we're playing the voices in Rena's head, so we're both in and out of continuity. We get the unique perspective of observing from beyond the fourth wall, and we're trying to help Rena be more aware of her situation.
>>30317496tell her about the S class people who might help you with not dying.See which plans she likes.
>>30317646because of things like this>>30317641you seriously need to chill out.
>>30317496Tell her why you asked about lesbian undertones.Tell her...tell her that you want them to be overtones.
>>30317547>>30317564>>30317568>>30317573>>30317589>>30317625Definitely agreeing with all these. If anything happens it's going to be from Bridgette's initiative. We're on a date, we don't have anything planned tonight and Bridgette is clearly interested in us. All we need to do is be sweet little Rena and say the nice things we actually mean.If that results in anything, conglaturations you got what you lot were hounding for. If not, eh, that's what pastebins are for.
>>30317704yeah, I think forcing the issue will only result in Bridgette getting mad at how dense we are
>>30317691Eh. I disagree, and think you're pushing your opinion just because it's not to your liking/you're in denial about Bridgette.
>>30317701She asked about overtones.
>>30317704I still want a waiter to mistake Rena for a boy and think they're a couple. Bridgette's flustering reaction might help click things into place for Rena.
>>30317733I think you're simply trying to force rena to be a lesbian for some reason, and are getting mad at her for acting in character.
Someone should make a Gif of a submarine holding a hammer trying to break a rock only to have it break itself instead.
>>30317765You're entitled to your opinions, but I'm looking at it from the perspective of Bridgette liking Rena, not vice-versa.
>>30317691I had assumed the picture of the skeleton would serve to show my lack of seriousness.I'm laughing, here. This shit is funny.
>>30317756>Bridgette's flustering reaction might help click things into place for Rena.Nothing will. Larro will slam this joke into the ground until it no longer makes any sense.
>>30317777That....is a little confusing. but we're Rena now why making Rena talk about this will work?
>>30317777either way, chill out bro.
>>30317765I just feel bad.Being Bridgette is suffering.
>>30317660Tell Bridgette you'd LOVE to not be S-Rank but there's only one way out of it that you're aware of and it's feet first.But... at the same time, you don't want to just take powers for the sake of having powers. You really miss regeneration.How is she taking her lack of transformation?
>>30317804I'm cool with that, too. The moment Rena becomes too competent and savvy is the moment she stops being fun to be around. It's a bummer everyone is getting mad at her for just being herself, though.
>>30317804Anon really needs to stop pressing the lesbians joke button.They're the ones slamming it into the ground by pressing it over and over.
>The two of them eat silently. After a while Rena sits up and excuses herself. As she walks back from the restroom she finds herself suddenly snatched and pulled away.------------------------------------------------------------->You are now controlling Cynthia.My my...Little Rena and my dear sweet loveable sister are going out on a date. How precious.Oh, she's squirming."Shhhhh. It's okay Rena. Don't panic.">She keeps panicking.She may not realize it but this date is a disaster. If left to her own devices it would crash and burn harder than the Last Bastion of Humanity.What to do, what to do~Maybe a few chomps to threaten her? Perhaps some advice from her elder?"Stop squirming so much~"
>>30317822She wouldn't have to suffer if she'd just be honest with Rena.
>>30317840Honestly I'm just tired of "HAHA, RENA DOESN'T GET IT!" as the punchline.
>>30317868please stop fostering a comedy ->DRAMA AND ROMANCE progression.I'm tired of that from every webcomic.
>>30317816We, as the impartial observer contained in Rena's head, realize Bridgette likes Rena in a more-than-friends way, or at least does so with a certain probability. As said impartial observers, we can't force Rena to come to any conclusion on her own since all we can do is advise, with Larro being the final arbiter for what sticks.By realizing Bridgette's feelings, we can pontificate on what they mean with regard to Rena and speak accordingly to Rena about them, but we have no direct control.And no, we're not Rena. Not directly, anyway. We can give her a push out of the nest, but she's got to fly on her own.
>>30317856Make her a vampire again.
>>30317856Cynthia needs to realize that Rena will never stop being Rena and instead chide her sister for not being honest to Rena.
>>30317868It's one of my favorite punchlines, it's just that some people trying to the shipping button is getting the same response
>>30317856Advice would work. Just play up that you know why Bridgette is mad and know exactly what she needs to do to fix it.
>>30317856Tell her about lesbians. Because Sparkle already told her, and you wouldn't agree with her normally, Rena will have to accept the reality that girls will love girls as fact.Or, you know, just give her advice on how to act fancy.
>>30317856I said STOP panicking renaHow did we get her to not panic last time? Death threats?
>>30317856Advice.But speak plainly. Rena is too dense for anything else.
>>30317856Can you like, knock her out to speak with your sister? Or maybe you have some serious hypnotism to break through the walls of density?
>>30317856Ask Rena if she's only dating Bridgette for the lasagna. See how Rena responds.
>>30317856We should teach her about lesbians wrong.As a joke.
>>30317856Hug her- with your real arms. She's not super strong now, after all. Tell her you aren't going to hurt her and that you're here to help. Calm her.
>>30317856TELL HER IT'S A DATE. TELL HER YOUR SISTER WANTS IN HER PANTS.
>>30317906The same joke over and over and over and over and over again is just making Rena look autistic.
>>30317856Take her away, How about transforming into Rena?Also Sparkle is banging your brother,
>>30317856Not to be a wet blanket or anything, but isn't this kinda similar to the situation that kinda ticked off Bridgette in the first place and touched off your hiatus from society?I suppose some advice would be helpful here, in any case. But do it honestly and openly, with the least amount of ~ara ~ara involved.
>>30317856B-But... All that sweet adorable Rena-themed dialogue about Bridgette...
>>30317856Advice. Although your sister could really be more aggressive about this.
>>30317934maybe stop pressing the lesbians button, then?
>>30317934I thought she was?She broke up with her boyfriend, was a cashier teller and only lived off video games, kitty, and junk food of unkown origins
>>30317856Tell her bluntly about what Bridgette wants, what it all means, and what she should do.Anything less, and the damned woman would completely miss it.
>>30317941>with the least amount of ~ara ~ara involved.GetOUT
>>30317856Explain, clearly and succinctly, exactly what lesbian undertones are.Or just bite her until she becomes a vampire again.
>>30317951It's not just romance, it's literally fucking everything. It grates on the nerves that there is no personal growth, no learning, Rena is just fucking retarded.
>>30317987she got stronger and she got in the swing of things with the hero thing, and she has friends.I think that is growth/
>>30317987anon, you've got little room to talk about what grates the nerves.
>>30317856hypnotize her into to being competent womanizer
>>30317987Have you been ignoring her massive growth in the hero department
>>30318020I'm sorry i don't like playing the same thread over and over.
>>30317856Tell her to stop being such a fuck up.
>>30318060If that's how you feel and you can't see any of the growth going on and merits of the threads, then please leave.Or at least calm down.
>>30317941Hey, I'm not doing anything bad. Just giving some nice friendly advice. No mind control. No turning her into an undead. Just some friendly advice from her friend~"Rena? I need you to listen to me. Okay? When you do that I'll let you go. Does that sound good? Do you want me to let you go?"R: "Y-yes.""Okay... My sister adores you."R: "... Okay.""She really truly likes you."R: "Uh huh.""... Do you understand what I'm saying here?"R: "... I'm not entirely certain I do."Haha, okay, this isn't working.>Cynthia pats her head.I don't think this girl will understand even if we tell her.If she's a dead end perhaps I should speak to my dear sweet little sister, instead?
>>30317856Cynthiaaaa, what are you doooooing?Last time you did something like this you nearly ruined everything FOR EVERYONE FOREVER.ok, what would irresponsible older sister do?She'd get Rena sloshed on something secretly. Not grab her.
>>30317856>She may not realize it but this date is a disasterThis isn't a date though, they're just dining together because Rena fucked up along the line
>>30318090Let Rena go, it really can't be helped.
>>30318090No, go ahead and out-and-out tell her. Use the word love. Do iiiiiiiit.
>>30318090Yes, please do. Make Bridgette confess.This is going to be so goddamn gooooood do it do it do iiiiiiit
>>30318090>If she's a dead end perhaps I should speak to my dear sweet little sister, instead?Yes, this. Bridgette needs to confess to Rena, because Rena will never understand otherwise. She can't even see the lesbians in Cinnamon Toast Madoka, for fucks sake.
>>30318090"She likes you like my brother likes that hussy Sparkle. Does that clear it up?"
>>30318090Yeah. We've pretty much concluded if Bridgette doesn't do something obvious nothing will get through to Rena on this.
>>30318090yeah, the sister would probably be more advantageous.Though, I doubt this would ever work. Rena doesn't seem like the type to maintain a loving relationship.
>>30318090Vampires are deeply sensual creatures. Turn her into one!
>>30318090SPARKLE IS DOING THE LEWD WITH YOUR BROTHER!!!
>>30318090RENAMY SISTER WISHES TO HAVE A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUSHE WISHES TO HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH YOU.
>>30318090Yeah, do thatHook her up with someone more decent maybe
>>30318090Tell your sister to just make a damn move already.Nothing is ever gonna happen if Bridgette doesn't make the first move.
>>30318090either that or some kind of natural aphrodisiac poison.That sounds like a thing that Cynthia might have, right?
>>30318090Current drama aside, that pic is motherfucking adorable.
>>30318090Tell Bridgette to confess.Do not tell her you tried to make Rena realize it.
>>30318090There's no choice Cynthia, you must internet lesbians and show Rena what goes on, then tells her that she and Bridgette should do those things together.
>>30317856Bite her into being a vampire again, then hypnotize her and make her realize she and Bridgette love each other.Also, tell her the truth in the simplest most direct words you can.
>>30318110It's a date. We know it's a date, she knows it's a date, Bridgett knows it's a date. Everyone but Rena knows it's a date.
>>30318129Madoka was gay?
>>30318090Yeah, Bridgette needs to do it.But maybe not right away. When they get back home, tell Bridgette to KISS HER YOU FOOL, probably with some sort of signboard or something.
>>30318090Tell her what a lesbian is- explain it slowly, carefully, so she understands.Make she understands what romantically interested is. Slowly, carefully like telling a child if she doesn't.Then, once she understands, explain that Bridgette likes her, romantically.If that fails- kiss her.If that fails. Give up. She's a lost cause.
>>30318135Nothing will happen. Not even if they fucking kiss, Rena will just ask what it was for canned laughter.And then it'll start feeling akward because it'll be like dating a functioning retard with the intellect of a goddamn child.
>>30318090We -can't- talk to Bridgette. If we do, she'll just flip out and the date will be completely ruined.Our only safe bet is to tell Rena explicitly that BRIDGETTE WANTS TO BE YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND KISS YOU ON THE MOUTH.
>>30318173But there are no romantic undertones
>>30318179No, but Homu is.
>>30318179Go away Rena, we're talking to Cynthy right now.
>>30318090Ask her if she even knows what the word lesbian means. If that doesn't get through to her, then let's go talk to your sister. Tell her she can't get through to Rena with hints. She needs to be straightforward.
>>30318134I laughed, I smiled, I despaired. This.
>>30318090rena:Explain to cynthia that you're already dating shadow man
Too bad, MM+! You're up against Rena one true S-class power: super-density!
>>30318273What a tweest!
>>30318273This plus "but she's a girl!" will get Rena's neck snapped out of sheer frustration
>>30318285If only Rena could manifest that into something useful. Hell, she'd probably be able to pull off a Flash-style infinite mass punch.
So since you're off tomorrow, double-thread?
... where did Rena find a rock in Bridgette's kitchen?
"Rena, run along and get my little sister here. Okay?"R: "Okay...">She lets Rena go. Bridgette approaches the Villain and sighs.B: "Sis. What the hell are you doing here.""Helping you~ And this time I'm not doing anything mischievous. This is honest to goodness advice."B: "Well, what is it, then? Spit it out. I have to force the rest of this food down my throat."
>>30318333Tell Bridgette that she has to make the moves and make it REALLY OBVIOUS.
>>30318333"Rena's never going to pick up on it on her own. You should stop waiting around and spell it out for her."
>>30318333If you really want this, be more direct.like WAY more direct.Also be prepared for rena basically being a sexless barbie doll.
>>30318333Holy shit she is angryWell you're on your own, as long as I'm concerned, since I've no idea how relationships work
>>30318333Give her some good advices.Tell her to confess her true feelings to Rena.And explain to her what lesbians are.
>>30318333Bridgette, if you don't tell Rena you love her in a "I want to be your girlfriend and maybe someday marry you"-way she's never going to figure this out. Her power is rocks because she is a rock.
>>30318333Tell her to confess. Unambiguously. Use the words "love" and "romantically".
>>30318333Bridgette, you have an INSURMOUNTABLE obstacle ahead of you.Rena is as dumb as a sack of hammers.Consider lowering/raising your standards.
>>30318209I knew that, I just thought madoka was just a magical girl with no real interest in romance.
>>30318333Tell her to make a goddamn move.Gotta use the words 'I', 'love' and 'you' in a subsequent fashion. Rena is too dense for anything less to work.
>>30318333Seriously, no ambiguity at all. Tell Rena that you love her, would want to marry her, and that you want nothing more than to have lewd makeouts with her.And yes, that means lesbian overtones. Tell her those words, and you -might- be able to break through to her. Anything else and she'll just lead you on for the next eternity.
>>30318333"Stop lying to her."
>>30318369I don't think she's angryThat is the face of somebody who is very close to despair.
>>30318333Tell her if she wants Bridgette to understand she needs to make moves on her. Like say Rena is sexy, or say something like "This date kindof sucks".Maybe when they get home she could put on a romance movie and hold hands with Rena during a romantic scene. Or move in to kiss her.DO SOMETHING OVERT.
>>30318333You have to be completely blunt with Rena. No hints, no coyness, no allusions. Be straight to the point. The woman is stone - don't use a fucking hammer, use a pick, a pointed tack to get the message through.
>>30318333Tell her she may need to literally spell out her feelings. I don't think Rena even knows what a lesbian *is*. Bitch is more dense than a neutron star. Also, she's not trying to hurt your feelings, she seriously has no idea you have romantic feelings for her. Because she's dumb.
>>30318333"Wow! you really know how to pick 'em! but Rena isn't the only that dense around here.... Make your move of give up sis. Rena is far too dense to connect the dots on her own."
bridgette: have a problem completely devoid of romantic feelings for rena.You've got a crush on someone else.
>>30318414OHOkay yes. YES. That strikes to the core of the issue. Bridgette is lying to Rena when she says nothing is wrong, when she shrugs off Rena being dense, when she backs down.She needs to STOP LYING.
>>30318333"She feels the same way about you, she's just too thick to understand it. You're in love. Kiss her and explain what that means simply.If you don't, then I'll have to turn her into a vampire so you two have to start necking~ ara ara~
>>30318427>I have to force the rest of this food down my throatIt means she's in very very sour mood. Might be sadness instead of anger though. Again, human interaction is hard so I don't know
>>30318414I like this, this is good.
>>30318414...That's a good line, but I'm not sure if it's in Cynthia's nature to say it.
>>30318333"If you don't make a proper move on Rena, tonight, I'm going to give her a tail ride and take her for myself."
>>30318496ALL THE FLATFICS WERE TRUE
>>30318333"Rena is an idiot. An adorable idiot, but an idiot. If you want her to do something, I'm sure she will, so long as she knows that you want her to do it. But she won't know unless you tell her."
>>30318496Cut to the next morning.Cynthia: ...well, fuck.Bridgette: SEE!?
>>30318490It is. She opens her eyes and says it.
>>30318542>She opens her eyesJesus christ how horrifying
>>30318534AT LEAST SHE'LL HAVE TRIED
Eeeehh. I'm ambivalent about this progression.I just hope Rena's denseness just shifts to being adorably incompetent about being romantic for Bridgette if this does go through because while I do find her density frustrating at times I can't really imagine her without it.
>>30318557When the ara are~ opens her eyes, you know that shit is serious.
>>30318590I myself don't like going for romance at all in this situation, but am going with it because I am not a very vitriolic arguer.
>>30318564Bridgette: Point out that you're not, infact, ready for a proper relationship and are more or less happy with things the way they are at the moment.
>>30318590relax, the only way rena could ever love Bridgette is if Bridgette turned herself into a food monster
>>30318590I could see Rena being an adorably terrible girlfriend. Bridgette just needs to sell her on the idea by saying it's like being friends, just with more cuddling. And more excuses to cook for Rena.
>>30318610Same boat as me, then.I kind of agree that something has to happen and Rena needs to be clued in, but I'm not sure this is it or how.But whatever.
"Stop lying to her."B: "What..? What do you mean?""Be honest with how you feel with her~ Rena is a nice girl and she may be a bit dense but if you tell her you love her romantically... Well, there's very little to misunderstand about that. Go on, do it~ I'm cheering for you little sister~">She pushes Bridgette out back to the table.You get this one for free, my dear sister~Next time I'll find other ways to help~===================================>You are now in control of Rena.>Rena sits down, eating her meal as she sees Bridgette walk up to the table. She doesn't sit down, instead she clears her throat to get the redhead's attention.B: "Rena. I have something very important to say to you.""??? What is it, Bridgette?"B: "Do you know what lesbians are?""Uh huh.B: "Okay. Well. I'm sorta kinda one and I've been having romantic feelings for you since a while ago. I really want to go out with you. I am saying that I am in love with you. Not like brother and sister, mother and daughter, aunt and niece. I'm saying I love you in a romantic sense. Do you get me Rena? I FUCKING LOVE YOU.">Bridgette stands there, trying to level out her breathing as she waits for Rena's reaction.>Rena stares up at her for what feels like hours."Uhm... Wow. I'm glad you care about me but... I don't think I love you the same way? You're like... My best friend. So... I don't think I can say anything back except let's keep being awesome friends."B: "......................."
>>30318628Bridgette: At least then I'd get a licking every once in a while...HEY-yo!
>>30318628Rena's true love is pic related?
>>30318610That, and trying to stop the other anons /u/niting would be like trying to swim up a waterfall.
>>30318646FUCK RENA YOU'RE SO DENSE, YOU'RE DENSER THAN THE DENSEST ROCK ON EARTH.INFACT YOU ARE THE DENSEST ROCK ON EARTH.
>>30318646...>Equips helmet>Enters bunker>Slams blast doors>Awaits inevitable fallout
>>30318646Knew it was coming. But better now than never.
>>30318646THEREFINALLYNOW WE CAN ALL MOVE THE FUCK ON
>>30318646Well, there we go.Rena: Explain that there's been a misunderstanding, you'll be more careful with your expressions, and that you'll be happy to do that.
>>30318646this is exactly what I expected."Sorry".
>>30318646Ask if she could just try for us.If not, cry. Don't be ashamed, just cry.
>>30318646>???Wait, what?Is that really Rena?
>>30318646Tell her she'd better at least put in the effort to try, or else you'll KILL HER.
>>30318646RENA WHY ARE YOU SO BAD AT THIS
>>30318646Way to waste everyone's time Rena.Apologize for not being gay, and not picking up on anyone's signals.
>>30318704I think I got that part covered for now, man.
>>30318676She is a living singularity, so much so that the universe has begun to revolve around her.
>>30318704Beg her for at least one chance at it. There's no shame any more, just desperation.
>>30318646Ah, well that's all cleared up
>>30318646Rena, try to keep all your important organs inside of yourself.You will need that advice in a couple of minutes.
>>30318646WHAT IS WITH THOSE QUESTION MARKS
>>30318646...You're on your own Rena.We're retreating to someone else's head to avoid the inevitable fallout.
>>30318646Apologize for being so dense about this.
>>30318646apologize. Awkward silence.Possibly lose your nemesis.
>>30318646Rena, apologize for not picking up on this sooner.Bridgette, apologize for not saying it sooner.Both of you, don't stop being friends, alright?
>>30318718BRIDGETTE IS GOING TO BLAME CYNTHIA FOR RUINING HER FRIENDSHIPGOOD JOB RENA YOU RUINED HER FAMILY
>>30318646Oh shit.Uh.I got nothing.
>>30318646I am seriously SAD right now.
>>30318646As Cynthia:"Damn, shoulda just told her to give up and move on:
>>30318646brace for impact
>>30318646No happy endings.
>>30318646Rena you should probably not actually fight Bridgette anytime soon because she will very likely actually kill youI mean, if she doesn't do it right now, that is.
>>30318646That was horribly insensitive Rena. Also, you just lost a friend.
>>30318646run and cry to big sis arms.
>>30318790I'm thinking a two-pronged attack.Cynthia holds Rena from behind while Bridgette kicks Rena in the ovaries with her robot foot.
>>30318646Rena, you're an idiot. You're the biggest, dumbest idiot to ever walk the face of the earth. Now, if you apologize hard enough you may be able to salvage this relationship and keep Bridgett from becoming the angriest, most dangerous villain of all time.
>>30318646Well that was interesting....
>>30318782The sad thing is the friendship isn't even ruined, I don't think it even had an impact on Rena. She won't feel awkward at all, and if no one brings up Bridgette's confession Rena will probably forget about it forever within 5 minutes.
>>30318646RenaJust give it a tryNothing you do at this point can make the situation any worse. Say you'll try.
>>30318824So basically fake being a lesbian? I don't think that's how it works.
>>30318844but what about bridgette?
>>30318646Honestly, I'm just happy you figured it out.And as for everyone else, I think it was silly to expect reciprocation from someone who barely comprehends lesbians. Even if it's possible, this was always going to be the necessary first step. There's still a chance here maybe but this was what had to happen first.
>>30318646Bridgette. Bridgette.Listen to me Bridgette.You can still be friends. Just be friends, okay? She says you can be friends, so stay friends. Please.
>>30318846You know, for all I wanted a happy ending for Bridgette, I don't think "trying" to be a lesbian would be honest on Rena's part. If she isn't, she isn't.Now, I also don't think Rena actually has half a fucking clue what lesbians actually are, and she was answering based on her own mistaken understanding, but that's something completely different.
>>30318646Whelp.I guess Rena is some kind of autistic retard.Or this is a doppleganger.
>>30318858Bridgette feels awkward of course, but she can't blame Cynthia because Rena isn't creeped out or driven off.
basically what we're looking at here is a situation wherein Rena is likely to be simultaneously murdered by both Monster Sisters?
>>30318881it COULD be that she just isn't a lesbian anon.It's a possibility.
>>30318898Even if she wasn't, the fact that she was so blunt about it proves that she basically has no sense of empathy.
>>30318892Eh, they're a bit distant anyway. It could be a good bonding experience for the two of them.
>>30318892restuarant mexican standoff.OH MAN, we should have had Mexican. for a Mexican Mexican Standoff.
>>30318859Agreed.Expecting Rena to jump in her arms is just unrealistic. Now that the truth is out she'll actually be able to consider it.If nothing still happens at least Bridgette isn't pursuing a lost cause.
>>30318646Rena I think you might want to run away because she's going to try to kill you.
Bridgette.Summon some monsters.Fight.You know you want to.
>>30318916rena's been established to be a romantic sadsack anon.
>>30318646Ouch. I mean, that... that's just painful to watch.I could load up a Surface to Air Missile and shoot down somebody less painfully.
>>30318916Beating around the bush is also just as bad
>>30318646no fire extinguisher can save Bridgette from this burn.
So how many people is Bridgette going to kill?
B: "Ha... Hahahahaha!""Uhm..."B: "Yeah. No. Totally should have seen that coming. Wow. I didn't know what else to expect. Well... At least I don't have to keep torturing myself any more. That's good.""Bridgette..?"B: "It's cool. At least I know it's not just because I'm some kinda loser. You would say that to anyone, huh?""Uhm... Maybe? I think so..."B: "Yeah. Figured. Aright. Cool. I'll see you later, Rena. I need to go home and just think for a bit.">Bridgette starts walking away."Bridgette..."What did I do wrong this time?Should I have lied?Ugh...I just wanted to hang out and play some games or something.Why does everything keep going wrong?
>>30318956allright.Now -NEVER GET INTO A LESBIAN RELATIONSHIP-If you do bridgette will explode.
>>30318956THOSE EYES LOOK LIKE SPARKLESRUH ROH.
>>30318956You broke her!
>>30318956Eat Bridgette's meal.Can't let it go to waste.
>>30318956It's alright Rena. You are who you are, and don't let anything change that.
>>30318956I think you need to really consider where you are going in your life.Maybe see a therapist. Like, a good one.
>>30318956Bridgette: Retrieve costume, kidnap Sparkle, sucker MMA into razing city.
>>30318977I think we've just established that arena can't get into any kind of relationshipShe'll die aloneAnd soon
>>30318956Hug her, and tell her you're too stupid to know what love is.
>>30318956There there Rena. It's not your fault.
>>30318956Because you're so bad at social interaction that people famed for being bad at social interaction are going "Holy shit, how can anyone be this bad at understanding people jesus fuck."
>>30318956Pay for the meal and leave Rena. It really might be better if you didn't talk to anybody for a while.Except maybe Robomaid, since she doesn't really have emotions, you know?
>>30318989Unless superpowers are involved, naturally. You'll just fucking jump at THOSE, won't you.
>>30318956be sad. pay the bill. go home. be even sadder
>>30318956Eat her steak.Hope that Cynthia won't kill you.
>>30319001well, she does have a thing going on with shadow manI agree on the dying part though.
>>30318956Go home and frown at meido.Bridgette said she needs to think, let her think. Maybe do some thinking of your own.
>>30318956>Bridgette internal monologue cam
>>30318956Calmly and quietly reflect on the fact that you just friendzoned somebody.Or broke their heart. Both really. Whichever is easier to understand.
wow ur such a fkn lesbo LOLu can breath fire but u also breath fish because yo eat pussy all da tim!"oh im a dyke's so big can be ridden into work by middleclass people " - uHoW GAY do u even have to BE to even THINK that everyone is into uI honestly think this would have been an easier way to let her down.
>>30318956well this just got depressing and sad, thanks Larro, I'm out
>>30318956Talk to Sparkle.
>>30318956You broke her heart. Now run before Cynthia breaks your everything.
>>30319018Inb4 Robomaid bitchslaps Rena and returns to her villainous ways.
>>30318956Pay the bill. Leave a wildly excessive tip, at least a few hundred percent.Go find Cynthia. Ask her for advice as to how to make Bridgette happy even if you don't love her.
>>30318956Well, that didn't go too well.Have you figured out why you've been feeling irritable all week?
>>30318956this was a long time coming rena, you didn't do anything wrong.Cynthia: ENGAGE DAMAGE CONTROL MODE
>>30318956That was rough, but honestly, that's the best answer you could have given. If you aren't romantically attracted to girls, then you shouldn't force yourself to like her. Bridgette will be depressed about the whole thing for a while, but that's pretty much unavoidable....Are you sure you're not attracted to girls? A week ago, you didn't even know it was a thing. I think you need to do some deep thinking about what exactly you feel.
>>30318956This isn't because you turned her down.This is because she's been trying to get your attention for a while and now she realizes you've never noticed her and you turned her down rather badly. Didn't even really think about it.I know you just didn't notice but it comes off like you just don't care.
>>30318956pay for dinner and call MGS.
>>30319055...what.Dropping because you don't like the-What the fuck.
>All of Rena's friends side with Bridgette on this one>Rena goes back to being lonely>Really misses Bridgette.
>>30318956Rena, go see a therapist.
>>30319019No... No. I think Rena would be much happier without all of those superpowers, down in C-class. Then she could just hang out with villains and get paid for it. It's all very unfortunate.
>>30318956Rena, you might want to watch out for crazed monster siblings trying to maim you in the near future.
>>30318956You didn't do anything wrong aside from phrasing it badly.So to make things clear you're super straight, right? Not attracted to girls?Finish your meal and call Anti-Hero. Ask if she wants to hang out, at least she hasn't been giving you any signals. Actually maybe you should ask to make sure she's not attracted to you too.
>>30318956Cynthia was trying to help you before Rena, maybe ask her what went wrong?
required:Night at the Roxbury gif with Rena, MM and MM+
>>30318956Rena the HeartbreakerI like it better than your old title.
>>30319019hey rena go find cynthia and ask her to bite you
>>30319107Is Anti-Hero still be in trouble because of the whole incident with the demon in her head and Ignis, or was that resolved?
>>30318956It's because you acted like you didn't care at all, as if she just offered you some form of dessert you didn't like.Less enthusiastic than even that, really.
>>30319110wheatley please go
>>30319134uh who is wheatley?
>>30318956Because you're too dense to survive.Get help. You seriously need it. You have some massive issues.
>>30319158'Bad Idea Sphere' from Portal 2.Some guy avatarfags as him in quests, suggesting obviously-terrible courses of action.
>>30319181asking Cynthia for help isn't terribleshut up
Why does everyone assume that density is the problem here? I mean she knows what lesbians are, but that won't make her into one
>>30318956Why has no one suggested getting drunk yet?
>>30319158Intelligence Dampening Sphere from Portal 2.He's as stupid as Rena is dense.
>>30319204they refuse to believe in straightness is all.
>>30319204bitter /u/boats anon. bitter /u/boats
>>30318956Rena if you let her walk away she is going to hate you forever. You don't have to pull some dumb "I'll try being a lesbian, j-just for you" bullshit, but you can at least catch up to her and apologize about accidentally leading her on for so long and being so blunt with your rejection. You really do think she is a great person and you're sorry that you can't return her affection in the way she wanted.
>>30319204It wasn't that she turned her downIt's how she did it, and the fact that she's asking why everything keeps going wrong.
>>30319204Because she didn't really display any empathy and said it in the worst manner possible.Heterosexuality is to be expected really, but there are better ways of turning someone down.
>>30319181I saw him and though that it's pretty stupid, but I didn't know he actually writes suggestions like him. That's actually kinda cool
>>30319204its not even that i'd imagine, its rena did it in literally the most assholeish way possible.
But... She asked me and I answered... I don't get why that's bad. She said she loves me but I don't really love her bad.Isn't it worse to pretend I do?Maybe I should ask Cynthia. She'll know what to do.>Rena pays the bill and leaves a $2,000 tip.>She goes to try and find Cynthia again.>Cynthia finds her first.>She slams Rena into a wall and hisses at her.C: "You little bitch... I warned you about what would happen if you made my sister sad. Look at what you've done. I should kill you right here.""But I didn't do anything! She asked me out and I said no! What else was I supposed to do!?"C: "Love her, dammit. I don't care if you have to fake a smile and lie through your goddamn teeth. You go and make her happy or I will drain every last drop of blood from your body.""But that wouldn't do anything! I'm not good at lying! She'd find out!"C: "WELL DO SOMETHING THEN INSTEAD OF SITTING AROUND BEING USELESS!""I don't know what to do!"
>>30319231I'm pretty sure Bridgette is likely to physically attack Rena if Rena accosts her .
>>30319257Rena why did your relationship with your ex end
>>30319257Give up and die right now, Rena. It would be the right thing to do.
>>30319257Ask her for advice on how to make Bridgette happy.
>>30319257Go, Cynthia, go.No mercy.
>>30319257Remember your training!
>>30319257Pretending to love her the way Cynthia wants you to would hurt her even worse in the long run. Tell Cynthia that.
>>30319249>>30319237>>30319233She turned her down in a bad way? Huh, I saw nothing wrong with how she did itI guess I'm a horrible human being
>>30319257Break down and cry. Everything's going wrong lately and everybody's upset/mad at you. Just... Fuck everything, break down and cry.
>>30319257Apologize to bridgette more.
>>30319257Chase after Bridgette!
>>30319284Nah, you're just autistic/sociopathic.If it's the latter, you're also stupid.
>>30319257Use Logic. we're friends, lying won't do any good.
>>30319263Better now than after she's had time to stew and actually hate Rena
>>30319257"I'm really sad I hurt Bridgette's feelings. What should I do, Cynthia?"
>>30319257"I'm not going to lie to her. When she found out - and she would, your sister is smart - it would hurt her even worse than I already have! Stop trying to reconcile your feelings for Sparkle through us!"
>>30319257Suggest Cynthia turn into some kind of psychic monster, like an Illithid or something, and, you know, try and find out what is wrong with you.
>>30319257Cynthia, you're really not grasping the irony of what you're saying considering what happened to you.
>>30319257>Curl up into a ball>Try not to cry>Cry a lot
>>30319284nah, the way was all right.They're just overreacting.
>>30319257I care about her too much to hurt her by lying.It'll work for sure.
>>30319257tell her she would be better at cheering her up than Rena right now...
>>30319257Ask Cynthia if she really thinks that Bridgette is so oblivious that she wouldn't be able to tell that we're faking a smile. Her sister is clever and smart and wonderful, and we'd never be able to deceive her. If Cynthia wants us to reciprocate Bridgette's feelings, she'd better have some way to make the love genuine, because we're not going to torment a friend by pretending.And if she can't manage that, she can back off and spend some time thinking about what would actually make her sister happy.
>>30319257Stop being autistic, Rena
>>30319284I don't see what's wrong with it, nice and clean.better then useless baiting or lying
>>30319257Rena. Tell her you'll think about it.And then seriously do. Not just about Bridgette, but about you and relationships in general.How'd you break up with your boyfriend for instance? What did you even do with him?
>>30319281Remember the basics of rock cqc
>>30319257But wouldn't lying to her be just as bad as what Sparkle did to you?
>>30319257Go over how your past relationship went down and how you concluded you weren't ready for another relationship until the next decade.
>>30319341Pretty much this.You should perhaps go see some sort of doctor.
>>30319312If only...>>30319313Actually.Yes. I like this.>>30319257Rena, you keep fucking up, but you can't figure out why. So get someone inside your head and see what's wrong.
>>30319257"Cynthia, I can't change how I feel just because you're threatening me. I don't want to hurt Bridgette's feelings, but I can't fake being in love with her if I'm not. That isn't what she wants."
>>30319341>How'd you break up with your boyfriend for instance?She just sort of forgot about him.
>>30319257Cry. You don't want Bridgett to be sad and you don't want Cynthia to be mad, but you're so socially retarded you don't know how to fix your fuck up. Tell her exactly this, you don't need to know what it means, just say it.
>>30319257w-will you be happy if i find someone for her?
>>30319257Rena. You know what must be done. Collapse into an ultra dense state. Become a black hole.
>>30319302I guess I amAlso why is sociopathy=stupidity?
><???> I always thought Larro was joking when he made those 10000% canon pictures on twitter.Thanks for leading us on like Rena lead Bridgette on you cunt.
>>30319340yyeah, it was fine.
>>30319257>WELL DO SOMETHING THEN INSTEAD OF SITTING AROUND BEING USELESSTHIS IS ALL I CAN DO FOR HER, AT LEAST ABOUT THIS.
>>30319400It's not, but only stupid sociopaths don't learn to recognise obvious social cues even though they don't really understand them.
>>30319403Boo hoo. Cry harder /u/. It'll only sink your boat faster.
Rolled 28>>30319257yeah... this hurts to even look at
>>30319436Wait what? How are you supposed to recognize something you don't understand?
>>30319443Nothing wrong with /u/. Bridgette's a canon lesbian now. You saying you don't want our best friend to be happy?
You know, aromantic and asexual IS a thing.
>>30319486But she has an ex-boyfriend
>>30319486according to SJW on tumblr maybe
>>30319257cmon Cynthia you can't blame her for thisthat would be like blaming someone who was born without legs for being unable to walk.
>>30319480Not when forcing Rena into a relationship she's not interested in is your solution. That is both awful and a little rape-y
>>30319496So?Did she ever fuck him? Or even kiss him?
>>30319500>why haven't you transformed into something with legs you fucking underachiever
>>30319500Don't they have prostetics for that?But I get your case
>>30319511What? No, dumbass, I just meant that the rejection of /u/ implies a rejection of Bridgette. If Rena's not coded that way, she's not and I think forcing her into it is a terrible idea for reasons I previously stated (see the "Reconciling your feelings for Sparkle" thing).
>>30319496She described her relationship as hanging out. Does it really count?
>>30319500Kinda like this.
>>30319540I'm entirely unsure about where you fall on the issue now anon.
HERO TIME.THIS IS ALL CYNTHIA'S FAULT, SOMEHOW
>>30319354Uhm... I went out with him for a few days... Then I dropped out of college and stopped seeing him?C: "SOMETHING. GO. I swear to god if I go to her home and she is still crying I will end you.">Cynthia lets go of Rena and shoves her out of the restaurant. The Hero stumbles along into the street.Okay...So I guess I gotta do something or I die.You guys are saying I was too harsh but... I thought I was being normal. What else could I have done? How do I turn someone down more politely? No one's taught me this so... I kinda did what I thought was right.I should at least talk to her again. Let her know I do care about her still. I would hate to loose her.>Rena goes over to Bridgette's home but the Villain is not there. She looks around for her.Oh, wait.>She goes to the rooftop where they battled and sees Bridgette on top of it. Rena enters the building and makes her way to the roof.>Bridgette is sitting on the edge, looking out into the city."Hey."B: "Hey.""... Are you mad at me?"B: "... No. I'm not. I'm just pissed off at myself. I should've just seen that you weren't interested in me. Instead I kept trying to force this relationship I knew wouldn't work out.And now I've lost my best friend because of it.""Hey, no you haven't. I'm still your best friend."B: "Ha. Rena, you may feel like nothing will change between us but that's not how I feel. It'll just be too awkward for me."
>>30319257Rena have you ever even THOUGHT about seeing girls that way? Have you ever even considered girls as romantic partners? Do you really know if you're straight?
>>30319561I like Bridgette and want her to be happy, and if she wants to find that happiness in a /u/ relationship, then more power to her. Now, having that person be Rena since she's (allegedly, because she's a fucking neutronium golem) straight makes no sense. I still want Bridgette to end up happy, but it can't be with Rena because that would hurt her because Rena would be lying her ass off.
>>30319583NO, IT'S KIRBAY'S FAULTKILL THE CAT-THING>miscarry felineEVEN CAPTCHA AGREES
>>30319585Solve this like you solve all your problems. Throw a rock at her. Battle her. Show her that nothing's changed!
>>30319585OH GODWE'RE ON VERY THIN ICEPANICMOST FATGUYS HAVE BEEN ON THE BRIGETTE END OF THISNONE HAVE SURVIVED IT WITHOUT GETTING MAJOR FEELINGSHURTWHAT DO WE DO?AHHHHHHHHHHHh
>>30319603well... I suppose we do agree then. I'd say match making time, but this is Rena we're talking here.Shit'll end in atomic explosions if she tried to touch it.
>>30319585no pls noI love youplatonicallycompletely platonicallyno hint of romance or lustyour food is delicious thoughI think I love your foodhow do you feel about open relationships
>>30319625It's [1/2]. There's nothing we can do. We're about to see what happens.
>>30319646Rena. How do you feel?
Rolled 65>>30319585wouldn't be simple as her explaining she doesn't know how these things work?because at the basest level she doesn't. She just kinda coasts on life and hasn't ever taken control of it for herself.Basically, Rena is either too afraid or lazy to do something for herself for once.
>>30319585"C-Can we still be nemesises?"
>>30319688We're playing a fucking game of Everyone Is John, aren't we.
>>30319585force her to fight you, let her go all out and same for you
>>30319716...that might actually work.Bridgette loves Villainy like Rena loves lasange.
>>30319712It's what it has been since the start
>>30319585"NO! You're my best friend! No matter what! Even if all of this gets in the way! Even if I have to fight you!"
>>30319784no, think about it man. Bridgette REALLY gets into those corny hero/villain exchanges.Maybe we can show her that it doesn't need to change all that much.
>>30319784Yes. It'd be great stress relief. I can see it now. Bridgette kicks Rena's ass, has her pinned down ready to deliver the killing blow, she gives Rena a deep kiss to the soul, and apologizes for trying to force her emotions onto her. Or something.Then Cynthia kills Rena, and we spend the rest of the quest in control of the plant.
>>30319806This is not the time for corny bullshit.>>30319810You mean stick.
>>30319800I will force you to be my friend!
>>30319712... isn't every quest where you have direct control of the protagonist like that? I mean for the protagonist, we're a bunch of opinionated, conflicting and ofttimes vitriolic voices in their head. Honestly it's amazing that we've not driven Rena to looking like this.
>>30319810That's too awesome to happen...
>people are barking order even before the other shoe drops
>>30319843Can we agree that perhaps it's more of a stalk than either a plant or a stick?
>>30319843>This is not the time for corny bullshit.those things are corny because they work.
>>30319848Rena's obliviousness gives her a +50 on "resist blithering insanity caused by bickering voices".Unfortunately it doesn't do the same for all forms of insanity. The Monster is kind of hard to ignore.
>>30319585"No, seriously. It's fine. I get that you liked me and all that. But I... Bridgette, come on. I don't want to lose you. You're like my first friend ever since I left college. Really. I think I would be so lonely if you just stopped being my friend. I mean, I have Sparkle and Robomaid but you're my most awesome friend ever. Please don't stop being that."B: "...""Bridgette, please. I'm sorry that I'm like this but please don't stop being my friend. Please."B: "...""Can we at least still be arch enemies?"B: "...">Bridgette sighs.B: "Yes, Rena. We'll still be arch-enemies.""... So... Planning on any villainy right now?"B: "Huh?""You know. Bad things. The kind that would force me to stop you. That kinda stuff."B: "No. I... Oh. I see. Well... I was planning on robbing a bank.""That's pretty bad."B: "Extremely. And there aren't too many heroes nearby to stop me.""Except... Me!">Rena throws a rock at her. Bridgette catches it.B: "You're slow, Hero Rena.">She changes into her villain outfit and jumps away from Rena.>Rena changes into her own suit as the Monster Maestro summons some of her minions.MM: "I'll teach you what it means to upset a Villain, Hero Rena.""Bring it on!"I think that helped her a bit.>One of the demons shoots a fireball at Rena, missing her by only inches.Hooooly shit that actually almost hit me.And I think that would have really hurt.Uhm...I don't think Bridgette is going easy.
>>30319951Use your rock throwing skills, she can't catch them all!
>>30319951duck and cover!
>>30319951Throw a LOT of rocks.
>>30319951>I don't think Bridgette is going easy.That's fine. We need to prove to Bridgette that we can still hold our own.
>>30319951remind her you're working without powers here. And since she probably already knows, try running away.
>>30319951You didn't.Why should she?
>>30319951Time to take your lumps, Admiral No Powers
>>30319951Throw a rock at her.Aim for her heart.
>>30319951That's fine, this is for her sake after all.Focus on surviving, not beating her.
>>30319987unfortunately we can't throw em all either.Not without a sling.Improvise a sling.
>>30319951Aim for the monster's eyes?Do we have sand or pepper spray?The eyes like last time!
>>30320002 time to get the shit beaten out of us
>>30319951Disorient the minions with rocks. Get in close to Bridgette and throw one at her.
>>30319906Yeah, well, I mean, compared to your general low grade insanity that comes from having a bunch of neckbears living inside your head. That... that's like weapons grade insanity, the Monster Kind.
>>30319951She isn't. You're going to need to fight seriously. Honestly, you're probably still gonna lose. But, it'd be insulting if you didn't fight her with everything.
>>30319951Well, it isn't perfect, but you two will hang out again and play Mario Kart in the future.But for now, you're going to have to improvise. Keep dodging and look around for things that you can use as weapons or such. And activate that ranger suit you have!
>>30319951Well she PROBABLY won't kill you, just try your best.
I hope Bridgette find happiness elsewhere
>>30319951Now just DON'T DIE and everything will be fine
>>30319951You've got smoke pellets. Use them to distract the minions and zero in on Bridgette.
>>30319951go all out too!throw those rocks!
>>30319951The monsters still have eyeballs. Aim for those.Also see if you can find anything more dangerous to throw. Something Bridgette can't simply catch....it's been so long since Rena got in a fight without powers I forget what stuff she's carrying around. She probably can't just punch these demons. Can she? She probably still has mace. If any of them get close she can use that.
>>30319951Use SMOKE BOMBS to distract minions.Hit them from behind!
>>30320055Ah yes! The smoke pellets should allow Rena to get in close and take Bridgette out with her fists.
Worth bearing in mind, Rena isn't completely depowered.>"I'm not gonna go down without a fight, Bridgette. I didn't lose all my powers. I'm about as strong as I was before I suddenly ranked all the way up. I think if we fought again it would be a great match!"
>>30319951Don't worry, what's the worst those tentacle demons could do to you?
>Rena does her best to dodge the next few fireballs. One catches her side and she can feel it's intense heat. She readies another rock and throws it at the demon firing them at her. It hits the monster square in the eye and the monster vanishes.>Rena tosses a smoke pellet she's saved up. The smokes blinds most of Bridgette's monsters allowing Rena to take them all out with well placed shots.>However, each one she takes out is replaced by a new one.B: "Come on, Hero Rena! You beat me before and you were even weaker! Are you going easy on me!?"
We're in freefall, page 8.
>>30320163TRY YOUR HARDEST RENA, PROVE THAT YOU CAN BEAT YOUR ARCH-NEMESISGO ALL OUT
>>30320163"You've forced me to use my secret technique!"Do a large power up kind of deal.Then throw a rock at her.
>>30320163Final smoke pellet! Make a beeline for Bridgette!
>>30320163Charge MM!And hug her
>Rena easily loses>Bridgette has tentacle beasts restrain her>she tells them to "fuck rena silly">Bridgettes face when
>>30320163aim for the wands
>>30320163Wait, if she's still standing at the edge of the roof, don't attack her directly. Sine, you know, she'll fall off and die.
>>30320163Smoke pellet, flip up the flappy bit of her costume, then rock her world.With a rock
>>30320163Aim for the wands!
>>30320163GIGU WANDU BREAKAAA
>>30320163Tell her that your winning spirit burns hotter than those fireballs!
>>30320163"Never! I was just hoping you might have something up your hilariously oversized sleeves!
>>30320163warcry! charge, dodge, throw!this is to save your friendship rena, go all or nothing!
>>30320226Don't you see that's what she wants? She can't live in a world where Rena doesn't love her back.>Rena kills MM+>Promoted to S-rank 1
>>30320163>Are you going easy on me!?Just a little.I'd target the wands if I didn't know how long it takes you to replace them.
>>30320163"No, you just got way stronger!"
For future reference, we need to start using all that money to buy upgrades. We can purchase stuff for our costume, and even some actual powers for ourselves. We should totally get on that.
>>30320226dive after bridgette. No delays, no second thoughts, just brainless Hero mode....don't remember until half-way down that you don't have vampire regeration anymore.
>>30320277And MM can't shapeshift anymore.
>>30320163Throw a rock, then a smoke pellet, then follow it up with a surprise tackle/hug.
>>30320163Don't be so modest, even a hero such as I can admit that my Nemesis has grown much stronger since our first clash!
In the main comic, does anyone think that S-rank one could be ONE's insert?In other news, go for the baton breaker, rena
>>30320163Perhaps you could try using some of the monsters' movements and attacks to mask your own?It might be difficult for Bridgette to see a disarming shot if it's thrown in close proximity of a fireball, or if she only sees it right as one of her monsters dodges out of the way.
>>30320163Channel your inner GILGAMESH!
>>30320271Like ninja stars and a strength-assist exoskeleton on top of the uniform. Heck, we could go straight up power armor and start throwing chunks of metal.
"Never! I was just hoping you might have something up your hilariously oversized sleeves!"MM: "Over... How dare you insult my outfit, Rena the Rock!? Prepare to die!">She fires ice bolts and fireballs at Rena. Rena dodges them but stumbles at trips.MM: "Haha! You really are weaker! This is it. Rena. I'm gonna end this here and now!">Monster Maestro waves her baton.>Rena throws a rock.>The rock hits Monster Maestro right in the face. There's a crunching sound as the rock connects with her nose.>The rock drops and Bridgette has a half grin on her face.MM: "... Okay. You still got it... That really hurt."
>>30320337Oh god she's bleeding
>>30320337Hugs time now. Apologize, both for the rock and for not being able to return her feelings.
>>30320337Pretty round rock.
>>30320337oh godI'm so sorryI never meant to take things this farplease hide that from your sister
>>30320337Oh geez are you okay that sounded like it really hurt
>>30320337"It can't have hurt that badly if you're still smiling, Maestro! Come on, I was looking forward to seeing your best!"She's having fun...
>>30320337Throw more rocks.
>>30320344To be fair she's USUALLY nose-bleeding around Rena
>>30320337Attagirl, now help her stop that bleeding.
>>30320337Keep throwing rocks, she'll get it in her head.
>>30320337Compliment her on not falling off the roof.
>>30320337A-are you okay?
>>30320337HAM IT UP! Smile, no hugs. This seems like a staring in content.
>>30320366No, we've passed the point of rocks.What else do we have in our pockets? Something softer?Right now we don't wanna mess with the wands because QK-Defence: Don't want to leave any hero or villain defenceless.
>>30320361>>30320354>>30320375It's probably not a good idea to touch her for a while.
>>30320428Oh. Does this suit have a handkerchief?
>>30320337GET READY TO DODGE!Try to think of something witty to quip while doing so.
>>30320337"Hey, you still feeling up for it?"New tactic: Aim rocks at her minions, starting at the leftmost and moving inward. Then interrupt the sequence and throw one directly at her.
>>30320337trip over nothing and say we lost.
>>30320337You know, at this rate we might end up really messing up her nose if we keep breaking it. Or we might end up really badly hurting her. Pieces of bone breaking off and getting lodged in your brain, that sort of thing.
>>30320460we keep trying to not hit the faceDamn our luck
>>30320337The fight's not over until someone gives up! Show her that you've learned not to hold back. Get in there and disarm her.
>>30320361>>30320354You guys know about how some girls keep accidentally leading guys onThis is why this happensIf we do go soft, it's in action and voice..physical contact that isn't a punch/brawl is not recommended...and grappling her down would not end well for anyone
>>30320471Wait a minute, has Rena weaponized failure?
>>30320460Hey man don't bring real world medical problems into this fantasy quest.
>>30320337"Are you ready to give up on your evil ways, Monster Maestro!?"MM: "Never!" She wipes the blood off of her face. "So long as you are still a Hero, Rena, I will never stop.""And neither will I, my arch-enemy!">The two of them smile at each other and continue their battle.=================================>You are now Magical Girl Sparkle.>Your 'Rena fucked up' radar has been dinging like crazy but it finally just calmed down.Tell me, voices.Did she fuck up?Is she dead?
>>30320337Okay, that looks bad, but don't overreact. She'd probably be offended if she still felt like fighting and we assumed she didn't.
>>30320510Naw, she's cool.Congrats on the impending motherhood, by the way.
>>30320510nah, she's not dead.She managed to solve everything by having a pitched battle. It's still going on, in fact.don't watch it though. There are so many rock puns that you WILL do horrible things.
>>30320484That's the point. We feed on misery.>>30320510Naw, she handled it pretty well this time.
>>30320510Yup.She fucked up.She told Bridgette that she didn't love her.
>>30320510yesno, not yet
>>30320510She fucked up but isn't dead, Sparkle.Did you gain some weight?
>>30320510Nah. She fucked up really hard, but fixed it. Mostly.
>>30320510Bridgette confessed her love and Rena said she doesn't feel the same but they can still be friends.Rena fucked up.
>>30320510Well, as it turns out, she really isn't a lesbian.Beginning to think she just doesn't have a sexuality at all.Girl has issues.
>>30320510I dunno magical girl sparkleAre you talking to voices in your head?
>>30320510She fucked up.She is not dead.Another day in the life of Rena
>>30320510MAGICAL GIRL SPARKLEWhat are you going to name the baby?
>>30320510she actually did fucked up, but she is fixing it on her own this time.go back to spooning that hunk and making those cute babies.
>>30320510She did fuck up. But she also unfucked it.It's still a little fucked, but now the true unfucking can begin.
>>30320510Yes. No.Did you use protection?
>>30320510The thing that's been building up ever since Bridgette and Rena met finally happened, but Rena seems to have resolved it about the best way she could hope to.
>>30320510it's like a background radation fuckup. It's "okay-might-have-consequences"-tier,Not something that needs urgent Sparkle attention.
>>30320510yeah she dun goofednot deadbut some serious goofageexplain the birds and the bees to her sometime
>>30320510Someone confessed to her! She shot the confesser down instantly! Now she and MM are fighting! Its awesome!
>>30320510Bridgette told Rena she was a lesbian and wanted Rena. Rena responded by saying she wasn't a lesbian and just wanted to be friends. THIS CAUSED PROBLEMS.
>>30320510Not really. She handled things about as well as she could have.Bridgette finally confessed her feelings, but Rena didn't reciprocate.Cynthia threatened to kill her over it, again.Rena is now cheering up Bridgette with a hero-versus-villain battle. They're doing pretty well.More importantly, you're aware of us as a distinct entity now. Any guesses as to what we are?
>>30320510She needs help realising her true feelings.You ship BridgettexRena, right Sparkle? Right?
>>30320510Today she became captain after single handedly sinking an entire fleet of /u/-boats
>>30320510You should get your head checked sparkle? What voices?Also yes,and not yet.Also how was the Bedroom monster.
>>30320510She rejected Bridgette's romantic confession in a really blunt way but seems to have mostly smoothed things over.
>>30320510Cynthia MIGHT murder Rena because she didn't want to bang Bridgette.Other than that, things are coolies.
>>30320510She fucked up. A lot. She's working on fixing it at the moment.She's not dead yet.
>>30320510yes, she fucked up and is about to commit suicide via villainand its all your fault
>>30320510HOW BIG IS HIS PENIS?
>>30318646i hate you. I HATE YOU!
Hey! Someone post that picture of her potential babby!
if a magical girl has a miscarriage does it turn into candy
Be straight: Is Rena your kid?
