>Introduction & Summary:You are Katja Hartkern, an up-and-coming Martial Artist trained in the art of Kyokugen Karate and looking to cement your name in history by winning "The King of Fighters: Infinite Match"... But right now, with all of the stuff you've got planned tomorrow and into next week (Including attending the launch of a Swimwear Catalogue you had modelled for and undercover work secret agents looking to topple a corrupt CEO with ties to just about every illicit agency world-wide), you want to kick back and relax the good old-fashioned South Town way: By watching strangers beat the shit out of each other for honor, pride & respect... (And meals sometimes too, but not always.)You idly wonder if you could get in on a match or two before the night's over, but remember that you're recovering from a small concussion you had recieved the previous day when you had been sparring with Terry Bogard & "Blue Mary" Ryan and kick back for a little bit, beer in one hand and a decent Hot Dog in the other as the lights dim, signalling the start of another fight...>The Rules: http://pastebin.com/Dj9z4r1t>Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30480309/>Contact Information:https://twitter.com/WeaselThat>UPDATED Stats Page: http://pastebin.com/eUELr1DM===>Days until the start of "The Infinite Match": 11>Date: Saturday, May 19th>Time of Day: 8:07 PM===
>>30608713Let's get this shindig started with a quick vote:>A. Watch a Night's worth of Fights at "The Pao Pao Cafe" as Katja Hartkern (Possibly taking control of of one of the combatants if enough votes get cast to do so).>B. Time-Skip to Sunday,May 20th as Katja Hartkern, getting a brief synopsis about the previous night's events.>C. Assume control of...? (Write-In vote to gain control of another character in a "Side-Story")>D. Actually play through "Run This South Town: /qtg/-Edition" (Assume the role of Bizuki Iijima and begin your quest to Fuck Bitches and Get Mana to improve your psychic powers... From a Prison Cell, of course.)
>>30608730 >A. Watch a Night's worth of Fights at "The Pao Pao Cafe" as Katja Hartkern(Possibly taking control of of one of the combatants if enough votes get cast to do so).I'm fine for not doing lewds today.
>>30608730>>D. Actually play through "Run This South Town: /qtg/-Edition" (Assume the role of Bizuki Iijima and begin your quest to Fuck Bitches and Get Mana to improve your psychic powers... From a Prison Cell, of course.)
>>30608730>>D. Actually play through "Run This South Town: /qtg/-Edition" (Assume the role of Bizuki Iijima and begin your quest to Fuck Bitches and Get Mana to improve your psychic powers... From a Prison Cell, of course.)Might as well. If it turns out a mistep, we can just eject and abort.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JUCfX1P1ik>>30609068>>30609120>Updates now OFFICIALLY begin>You Now Assume Direct Control of Bizuki Iijima>Date: Saturday, May 19th>Time of Day: ???You curse your luck as you get shuffled in-between room after room, the interogation process theses pigs are putting you through not being as "Pleasant" to you as you had expected it to be... Though mainly it was because they were focusing on purely psychological warfare rather than any physical abuse.Hell, at this point you wouldn't really mind they had you schackled up in stocks, or cuffed and straddling a "Wooden Horse"; Even some good-old-fashioned Shibari would be better than the "Clean Health & Vanilla" torture that they're doing to you right now...It's all to do with the origins of your powers, of course; You were young, reckless and not exactly the biggest on reading fine-print when you had finally gotten powerful enough to kill your captor, Mr. White, all of those years ago. You had thought that the arcane ritual you had studied up on in secret and performed on his exhumed corpse was enough to ascend and become a powerful Demoness, fit to rule this city as a prelude to conquering the Underworld at large... However, you "Done Goofed" and unded up gaining the powers of a SUCCUBUS instead, which wasn't exactly "Bad" per say, but the desire to try and sate your carnal pleasures screaming at you almost hourly was a consequence of that... Worst of all, your libido had started to affect the abilities you had gained from White, to a point where you were practically ready to start making out with that butch-looking Aussie in broad daylight to try and restore your psychic energy (Which SOMEHOW got tied into your libido, though even your understanding of the arcane can't explain THAT one).
>>30609474Instead, she and her CUTE boy-toy beat the crap out of you and sent you to the authorities... Furthermore, these clowns saw through your "Act" after the first session, though that was mostly because they had seen the whole "Amnesiac" thing play out a million times before and could see through you in minutes... You snap back into focus as the blinds over your eyes get lifted as you're lead into a windowless, though well-lit room that looks to be modelled after the so-called "Quietest Room on Earth" and get shackled to a chair. You squirm and coo a little as the brawny older guy man-handling you locks you into place, though again it's mainly wanting more than anything to just be able to wash aware the fire in your loins (As you wouldn't have found this guy attractive AT ALL under any normal circumstances)."We'll give you Half an hour in here... Try not to break anything" you hear him tell you as the blind fold goes over your eyes again, his voice sounding like he came out of an old, cheesy 70's-Era Detective show as you hear the door close shut. Your mind starts to wander a little as you can almost hear your heart beating, as well as your stomach naturally digesting the food they had given you earlier as you start to actually panic slightly; You can recall the stories you had read online about the hallucinations people would get in that room and wonder what'll happen in this one?
>>30609653>A. Fantasize about the kind of body you want to have after you master the Art of Bio-Magic, if only to distract yourself and keep from going insane wile in this room. (Please specify what kind of beauty Bizuki should look up to as a "Standard" with your vote)>B. Rock back and forth in your chair and try to "Flick the Bean" on pure friction alone, as your arms are tied behind your back and locked in gloves...>C. Plot about what you're going todo to all of these vile, disgusting monsters for doing this to you, gleefully detailng what you'd do to that older Red-Head and that Eyepatch-Wearing guy most of all... (Write-In Vote for how ridiculously "Edgy" the voters want to get)>D. Quietly reflect on yourself right now and see if simple meditation can help you overcome your wanton desires, even if incantaions can (As these fudge-packers did something to keep your hands closed, unable to cast incantations...)>E. See if you can try to cast a spell of physical strength with your toes, breaking free and making a run for the exit once the half-hour's up... (Roll 1d100 for Luck that you can actually do this)>F. Something Else (Write-In Vote)
>>30609663>MFW No VotesNot Lewd enough? Or no real interest in continuing it? If all else fails, we can switch back to Katja, or somebody else if desired...
>>30610130Not really sure what's going on. My vote I guess is "Wait for a chance to seduce a sexy prison guard." Once we have one minion our options open up a lot.
>>30610402Well, We're in the middle of psychological warfare right now; They sort-of know what's going on with Bizuki's Powers, so they're trying to "Break" her sans physical abuse (Which they don't have clearance to do yet) and confess to who she is...Thing is, we're locked in a room that might cause the current PC to lose her shit, so she needs to occupy her mind for a half-hour and wait to do what you've basically wanted... >Pic Sorta-Related.
>>30609663>>A. Fantasize about the kind of body you want to have after you master the Art of Bio-Magic, if only to distract yourself and keep from going insane wile in this roomPowerful and sexy. Like cause accidents by walking on the sidewalk sexy.
Fuck it, combining the votes below for expediency... Also, Update's around the corner; This particular brand of writing's taking some time to truly 'Nail" and NOT make it sound like I started copying Doujin's wholesale.>>30610627>>30610402You can feel a strong sense of dread rising up in your stomach, the room so quiet that you can practically her the noise your fucking EARS make and try to calm down, focusing instead on a sect of "Practical Magic" that had eluded you so far: A way to physically change your body (As well as anyone else's) that you refer to as "Bio-Magic", if only because the actual name for it doesn't really have a proper english translation.You close your eyes, visualizing what you'd want to do with yourself first of all, as you never really liked having the body you're currently stuck with, ESPECIALLY when people on the streets sometimes ask you 'Where's your Mommy?" when you'd walk out after dark in the some of the more "Adventurous" parts of South Town...You shake your head clear of that, the room's unnatural quiet causing your mind to wander against your will... Instead, you look back to being on the beach, modelling in swimsuits that were a little TOO bare, even to your tastes... Actually, sctrach that; It wasn't the designs of the suits themselves that were "Off" to you, but rather the colors that they came in. Swimsuit choices aside, you had taken the job to scout for possible choices into your future Harem's female side, as well as get an idea about how you'd want to look once you'd truly mastered this art...You think about how... "Happy" they all seemed to be, even the butch Aussie that looked terrified at the start warming up as the day went on as you start to feel your panties get a little moist... Instead of backing off or trying to release yourself through squirming in your chair, you hold that thought and run with it a little bit, thinking about the kind of woman you'd want to be out of all of them...
>>30611428Being around all of them, seeing them all gathered together for that group shot at the end... You can almost feel them huddled around you in the room, enveloping and engulfing your tiny frame (As you're around 5 Foot and less than a Hundred Pounds on a "Bad" day) as you think that you'd LOVE to be like them all a little, though as to which one you'd take after the most...?For a start, you don't want the kind of "Delicious Flat Chest" you seem to have and complimented on by certain fans at Cosplay Conventions; You want the incredibly insane figures that all of them had (With the exception of that "Christmas Cake" that had been past her prime and included only because of her ability to get the location), though what brand of ridiculous is up for debate as your breath starts to get heavy.Having exceptionally large breasts sounds good, though you balk a little at the size of Fiona & Tsuyako's a little, if only because they seemed almost cartoonishly big, nearly "Eroge" big... yet at the same time, you feel that they wouldn't be out of place on one with deigns of domination; Besides, you always got off on dominating those that you felt were physically supperior to you... Who's to say what would happen if that role got reversed?You then get a clear picture in your mind of Fiona Graves as an even taller, bustier succubuss, rocking that impossibly tiny Black Sling Bikini and a set of Horns on her head that makes you think of a certain, American Comic Book character when you hear the door open and your blindfold come off.You open your eyes and look at the person undoing your locks and stocks, noting that they're rather young, wiith Brown Hair and rather large Bangs... Curiously, you can't quite tell whther this relatively "Green" recruit is a boy or a girl, but there's no denying that he/she's exceptionally beautiful to your eyes...
>>30611735"Let's see if I can take this androgynene for a ride..." you think to yourself as you try to squeeze your hands together and rub your fingers together, thinking through all of the steps as you whisper into his/her ear "Please... Let string you along", the phrase masking the incantation required to activate the spell.You wait for a few seconds, the tension in the room almost seemingly unbearable as you wait for a response... After a minute or so, The "Greenhorn" pauses, takes another look at you and rhen says "OK" in an either an EXCEPTIONALLY high-octave Man's voice or an average-sounding Woman's voice.You smirk at your plan working, but don't lose sight of the fact that you might have to deal with more people soon, which might put too much of strain on you too quickly... Still, you want to do a quick test to see if you REALLY have gained control ofthis person's mind...You ask "What's your name" in dulcet tones, really playing up the "I'm confuesd and SUPAH KAWAII!" charm you seem to have to it's fullest..."Avery" comes a reply, the eyes on this person's face not quite as "Alive" as a normal person's, but at the same time not quite "Dead" enough to garner suspicion as you hatch a plan of action... Though at the same time, "Avery's" reply has still left in the dark over his/her's gender...>A. Ask Avery to lead you out and use the power of persuation to lead you out of here... (Roll 3d100 for Power, Persuation & Luck)>B. Order this "Greenhorn" to strip down; You want to see what this androgynously beautiful person is like out of uniform...>C. Have him/her grab a gun and go postal; You want to get REVENGE for this mind-numbingly boring "Interrogation" session! >D. Something Else... (Write-In Vote; Please write any "Explicit" responses in Spoiler Tags)Gotta Commute Home; Should take about 45 Minutes... Voting's open until then[./spoiler]

>>30612616>>30613192>>30613324Just got back home; Update's on the way...
>>30612616>>30613192>>30613324"Well Then Mr. Avery, can I go home now?" you ask, delicately framing this person to be your meal-ticket out of here (As well as your first "Experiment" if the cards of fate fall into your favor).Avery pauses, then says "Alright. I just need to confirm it with my superiors. Move along with me please" as the two of you walk together down the hall, quickly latching on to Avery's arm like a small, lost child..."What the HELL are you doin' rookie?!" you hear a man your files back the office reffer to as "Seth" yell, cowering behind Avery's surprisingly large form (5'11", maybe slightly shorter than that), playing a part "Sir, I can explain" you hear Avery start to say, manipulating his/herwords and trying to use him/her as a mouthpiece, though Seth shoots you down almost immediately."Explain my ass; You aren't supposed to be handling this suspect alone" Seth yells in Avery's face as you start to sob, faking it as best as you can as you slowly start to"S-Sir..." you pause, sniffling a little for added effect, "Can I just go home? Please?" you timidly, almost shyly ask, trying to put on your best "Bambi Eyes" expression.Seth takes a long, hard look at you as you try to bend his will ever-so-slightly, knowing that if you pushed him TOO hard at this point that he would probably suspect that you were manipulating him and lock you away in solitary confinement or something...He finally, almost begrudgingly cracks as you straight-up start to bawl, using Avery to defend yourself and voice your REAL opinion. "See?" Avery asks as the two of you walk up to seth, Avery whispering into "With all due respect sir, I think we should let her go and pray that her parents don't try to sue us or get this department shut down.""... Damn it" Seth concedes, then squats down in front of you and puts a hand on your shoulder. "What's it gonna take to put this all behind us kiddo?"
>>30614680You stop sobbing, but not fast enough to arrouse suspicion as you reply "I just want to go home..." in the cutest, yet also saddest voice you can fake as you see Seth nod, then tell Acery "You liscensed to drive?""Yes Sir" you have Avery reply.'Then take her to wherever she wants to go... But have someone else ride with you" Seth tells the two of you as you inwardly fume at his words."FUCK" you think to yourself as you have Avery put the blindfold back on you and lead you out to a hirecar waiting out in the facility's parking garage.>A. Have avery kill the other Agent sent to keep an eye on the two of you and speed off to a "Safehouse" you had prepared in case something like this happened.>B. Have Avery drive you to some random back alley deep into the heart of South Town and THEN decide to kill the other opperative, torching his car as well.>C. Have Avery crash the car halfway on the way there and kill the other opperative yourself, then try to beat feet to a safe hiding place out in the wilderness.>D. Try to somehow bend the wills of BOTH of the people in charge of transporting you out; If you succeed, you can start by having the other guy disable the tracking devices installed on your car.>E. Something Else (Write-In Vote; Please wrap the more "Explicit" responses in Spoiler Tags)
>>30615048>>D. Try to somehow bend the wills of BOTH of the people in charge of transporting you out; If you succeed, you can start by having the other guy disable the tracking devices installed on your car.
>>30615048 >D. Try to somehow bend the wills of BOTH of the people in charge of transporting you out; If you succeed, you can start by having the other guy disable the tracking devices installed on your car.
>>30615048> AEvil option gotta be evil!
>>30615137>>30615641You briefly consider having your new "Toy" kill the other agent chaperoning the two of you, but decide against it after thinking about how much of a ruckus would occur if you did; You want to make it out of here alive and in one piece, though at least quickly enough to try and sate your lust, feeling like a wave of intense, near-orgasmic pleasure crash over your body with every step out to the car...You have Avery stop and tell the secondary person to "Unlock her cuff's; She's just a civillian now" and the other person silently does so, removing the biggest hurdle in trying to get yourself out of this and settng yourself up to REALLY have some fun... "But not right this second; I want to get somewhere safe" you think to yourself as you and Avery get in the car.The third person tells you "I'm going to go over this one again; I keep feeling like there's something in the undercarraige" in a girly voice as you try to bend the wills of both of these agents... And succeed when you hear that slightly "Off" tone in the second agent's voice as she asks "OK, where do you want to go sweetie?"You pause, wondering if she truly DID remove all of the possible tracking devices this car might have as you had instructed; The last thing you'd need is to set yourself up into falling into an orchestrated ploy to uncover your place of residence... Still, you want to get home and have some REAL fun with these two, so you throw caution to the wind and tell her "There's an old Mansion out by the Northernmost tip of South Town National Park... Can you drive me along, please?", again subtly hiding a more powerful incantation and actually using your hands freely to augment the spell's power.The girl agent says "Sure" in the same tone Avery had said it, confirming success in your mind as she puts the car in gear and drives off, going through the various security checkpoints and flashing her ID about three times before she's able to get out onto the open road.
>>30609474So Bizuki is a human imprinted with a succubus's power, possessed by a succubus, or IS a succubus?
>>30616925Human imprinted with a Succubus's powers, though not by choice... She also has a small portion of Mr. White's mind-control techniques and persuation abilities, but hasn't truly mastered them yet..>>30616541You take the blindfold off and open your eyes, the mental strain of doing this only augmented by the unbelievable urge to just put a free hand down your pantsand just get this over with already, though you try to restrain yourself as you want to let it all hang out back at your home..."So... You got any parents?" The lady agent asks, nearly jumping off into the deepend of lust a the sight of her long, blonde hair framed by a Green Beret."W... Well, I..." You start to say, hamming it up to REALLY drive home the underlying sadness behind your next sentence. "I live alone. My parents died in a Car Accident when I was little and my Butler, the one man I've had to look up to..." you pause again, REALLY letting the tears flow as you add "Died just last year...""That's... Terrible" you hear Avery reply, again twisting the emotions of both of your would-be cators to feel sympathy for you, leading to something a little bit more "Interesting", you hope."You know, we could visit you if you want to" you hear the Blonde one say, your mind putting on an ellaborrate scheme to get these two to stay and live in your place, if only for a day to relive your "Stress" on them."I don't really have anywhere to go either" Avery mentions, then have him/her add "Would you like us to keep you comapny?" "That... Sounds wonderful" you reply, tears in your eyes as you inwardly chuckle at how this all was as the rest of the ride to your Mansion goes off without any real incident, Patty (The Blonde in the Beret) and Avery chatting about everything under the sun as you think "Exploiting people's emotions are child's play... The REAL test is when we get home."
>>30617150>A. Continue to play as Bizuki Iijima and take these two unwitting "Vounteers" on a Carnal Crash-Course neither of them will soon forget (IE GET. FUCKING. LEW/D/ /U/P IN THIS MOTHERFUCKER!).>B. Respectfully fade to black, but keep playing this out as Bizuki Iijima.>C.

>>30617240>B.In all seriousness, you don't need to go too crazy with this... Or like another anon said, write it all out and offer it later if you feel the need to do so.
>>30617240>A.Just do it OP. You know you want to.
>>30617274>>30618110Eh... I'll probably write it all out, but I don't expect it to be done for quite a while... For Now, here's a brief, SFW Prologue; Sorry for the long delays.>>30617591Your hire-car for the moment arrives at the gate to your impressively gothic Manor, the gates swinging open through sheer "Practical Magic" as the sedan rolls up to a series of Garages on the left (Converted from a series horse stables) and pulls in to an empty one."Well..." You start to say, but stop for a moment as Patty & Avery both look at you with "Bedroom Eyes", your inner lust starting to finally show"Let's take a shower upstairs, shall we?" you ask, already knowing the answer as the three of you get out and head inside, the grand entrance hall impeccably well-kept and clean (Partly because you had "Hired" random strangers to do the work for you and... "Disposed" of some of them after a while) as the three of you headed upstairs to your largest private bath."Here it is" you announce as Patty and Avery start to strip down, Patty's "Farmgirl" charms only accented by Avery revealing to VERY much be a woman; So much so, in fact, that you nearly break the illusion out of sheer surprise."She's like that chick from Patlabor, except built like a BRICK HOUSE" you enviously think to yourself as the three of you dive in to the "Orgy-Sized" Bathtub, feeling yourself finally give in and start to relieve some "Stress" after a couple of long, hard days...>Fade To Black===>A. Keep playing as Bizuki Iijima.>B. Resume Direct Control of Katja Hartkern on 5/19 at The Pao-Pao Cafe.>C.

She asks, her english pretty good for an Asian Lady but not truly "Perfect" as you stare at her for a little bit, sitting down at the counter-top with your hands over your eyes, trying to block out the harsh lighting that the kitchen light's overhead have."Yeah, I guess I sorta... I'm sorry, but who're you again? Not to be rude or anything" you ask, scratching your head and trying to remember as much as you can from last night..."I'm Tsuyako's mom, Hatsune" She replies, adding "Shermie sent me to chek up on ya' and drag your ass up in the morning for that gig in a little bit...""Oh... Thanks" you drearily reply, wondering if you're still dreaming as Hatsune wiggles and jiggles like her daughter underneath the apron as she starts to serve breakfast..."We got about half an hour before we gotta leave, so eat up" you hear her tell you, her accent starting to thicken slightly as you shrug, take a sniff and start to eat, not really tasting her cooking as you try to just wake a little bit more, Hatsune more-or-less devouring her meal, finishing it just as you were about to
>>30623195"C'mon, Cmon let's get going already slowpoke!" You hear her yell as she gets up and does a few mock stretches, vaugely looking a bit like Takuma as you shrug and think "WHY did I sign up for this again? WHO is this crazy old woman barkin' orders at me?" as you get up and stare at her, the tension in the room rising as she matches you eye-for-eye..."You wanna start somethin'? Because we can go downstairs and settle it in the parking lot like I used to when I was working for AJPW" she says as you wonder if you could take her, even in the state you're in right now...>A. Agree and fight this crazy lady; You aren't gonna take someone else's shit this early in the morning and CERTAINLY not in your (Sorta) home.>B. Ask her precisely WHERE and HOW you agreed to take her on for this, because she's testing it right now...>C.

Completely lost internet access last night, hence the silence Anons... Anyway, updates now officially resume.>>30624424>>30628057>>30624424>>30623503>>30623702You eye this older woman down and feel the urge to take her offer up, get your leathers on and kick her ass in the parking lot downstairs... But you try to calm down a little as you say "Nah... but I'd like a little refresher on exactly WHY you're here, yellin' in my face like a drill instructor this early in th'mornin"" as you brush past her and head for your room, Hatsune following you as you close the door ever-so-slightly.You start to get changed into your Desert Camouflage pants and a Grey "Wife-Beater", grabbing the jacke you had on last night as you listen to Hstsune's intital explanation."Last night, at that weird-ass fight cafe... You offered me to sit with you, yeah?""Look, if it happened last night, I don't bloody remember it OK?" You tell her as you fiddle with your shirt, real "Bite" in your voice while you add "So just tell me why you're 'ere; You get sick of beating your daughter 'n her team into ground and needed a place to crash? Or what?"Hatsune rolls her eyes and crosses her arms, dropping any pretense of being "Friendly" as she clears her throat. "Alright, fine... You wanna know it went down? Here's how it went down: You were at that cafe... I had just gotten through with my match and wanted to take a table up front so I could get a real ringside seat of the rest of the night's fights. You offered me the other half of the table you were using, I accepted and we started drinking together..." "OK... And?" You shoot back, not totally convinced yet as you get on your socks & shoes."Well, you got hammered and pissed off the wrong guy" Hatsune replies almost instantly, jabbing at the air out of sheer boredom."AND?" You reply, getting increasingly agitated at Hatsune's rapid-fire conversation as you wash your face and then apply a small amount of Make-Up...
>>30628747"Turns out the fucker was a Yakuza boss" Hatsune almost, matter-of-factly replies as you walk out and grab your Helmet and gloves, leaning up against the doorway to your room."Right... So what happened then?" you ask, a little bit more receptive of Hatsune's story."Anyway, You try to fight him, but he knocks you flat on your ass with one fucking blow and had you up by the head when I drop-kick the sunnofa bitch and challenge him to a fight.""... Did he happen to say that he was from Okinawa?" you ask, thinking back to the guy that Tsuyako had talked about a long-ish time ago."Yeah, actually... But anyways, I ended up kicking his ass, we got him kicked out of the club and you demanded that I drive you home and heal up your wounds" Hatsune again brusquely explains, then says "I got the whole thing on my Daughter's Cellphone if you want to check it out later; We gotta get moving if we're gonna make it on time.""Sure...And thanks, I suppose" you sort-of sheepishly reply. Hatsune gives you a pat on the back and hear her say "No Problem!" in a very strange Japanese Dialect (Her Okinawan heritage showing).before the two of you walk to the elevator and head down to the lobby, "Hang on, did you ride my bike over 'ere? Or leave it at the Cafe?" you ask as the elevator hits the lobby floor."I had ridden it back here with you holding on to my waist... Why?" Hatsune saysas the two of you head down to parking garage, your beloved 'Bike parked in your favourite spot...Gotta Commute; Next Branching Path will be in the next update, which will arrive ASAP.
Back from my commute.>>30628905"Nothin', just wonderi' how I got home" you reply as you straddle the bike and start it up, letting the engine idle for a few seconds."You think you're good to ride?"

>>30629466 >B. Let Hatsune Ride the two of you down to Fantastique La Femme; You aren't feeling up to riding today...
>>30629507>>30629581"Hey, Hatsune? Where're we supposed to be goin'?" you ask as you feel her get on the back of the 'bike, recalling that Shermie didn't actually give you a firm location when you had talked to her yesterday."That shop she owns. Why?" She says, strapping on her own personal helmet and gripping your waist, feeling her body press up onto your back, idly wondering how can a woman her supposed age still look and feel so solid?"Just checkin" you reply as you kick the bike in gear and slowly back out of your parking spot, taking a little bit longer to get going than usual due to your own senses not being quite up to snuff and the fact that it had been quite a while since you've had someone ride along with you, your bike not exactly handling as sweetly as normal...Still, you get to "Fantastique La Femme" without a hitch, though the traffic around Sound Beach got pretty dense the closer you got to the shop, your eyes widening when you spot a line litterally going around the corner when you pull into the small parking lot behind "Beach Comber's" clothing store."Pretty impressive..." you mumble through your helmet, conscious not to take it off as the two of you"Feh... I remember when I started riots simply by being in one place for too long back in the day" Hatsune replies as the two of you head up to a small alleyway around the back of Shermie's boutique, entering through a service door before taking off your helmet."There she is" you hear Fiona Graves remark as you had accidentally walked into the shop's makeshift dressing/"Green" room, Mai Shiranui doing a few little touches to her hair while looking at a large, lighted mirror as Shermie talks to someone over the phone in French, not noticing you"Yeah, had a rough night" you hoarsely reply, playing up the story that Hatsune had told as Fiona Fist-Bumps the two of you."Where's Tsuya?" Hatsune asks, wanting give her daughter a good morning greeting before this madness starts.
>>30629975"Bathroom, I think" Fiona replies as Shermie walks over to the three of you, giving you a nice little hug as you return it in almost full, hearing her back crack as you do so."Litt's stiff, are we?" you tease, noting"Probably... But it's so GOOD to see you dear! I didn't think you were going to make it out" Shermie replies, doing a few formal pecks on each cheek before breaking away from you."Yeah... I had to get her up early" Hatsune starts to say, though you cut her off before she can finish her train of thought."Actually, I woke up smelling your food...", turning to Shermie and asking "So! We ready for this?""Just about... We have to wait for Tsuyako-chan to get ready" Shermie replies as Hatsune leens up against a wall and crosses her arms, looking a bit like a aging movie star still trying to act like a teenager as you take off your jacket and gloves, resting them on an empty chair and ready yourself for the biggest press-op you've ever had to do in your life...>A.

AMYou had caught a late flight out of Indianapolis on your private Gulfstream 6 jet (Nicknamed "The Flying Fortress", as you could practically use it as a mobile office if you had so wished), trying to get some sleep on a whirlwind of a media tour for the last few days as your pride and joy, "The King of Fighters: Infinite Match" was drawing ever-so close to the start date despite so many deals and details left undone...You had mainly flown out to Indiana in the first place for a possible chance of getting the rights to hold one of the stages there (And getting badly chewed out for bring "Such Shameless Violence into this city", as the Mayor put it), not to mention that you were trying to get some exposure for a fledgling start-up equity firm you had only just orchestrated a hostile takeover of... Not only THAT, but you were also offering moral support to your Number 1 "Right-Hand Man's" greatest passion outside of the Martial Arts, as Andrew Draco was attempting to start up his professional driving career again with an attempt to qualify for the Indianaoplis 500 in car that you were technically sponsoring/paying for, having had to start a team up from scratch after the original owner got arrested for defrauding the United States Marine Corps...Aside from the headaches, pains and endless red-tape needing to be cut to get that all off the ground for that to happen, a part of you felt a bit of melancholy over possibly losing one of the biggest influences on South Town's underworld you had for the "Straight" life once again, but you WERE aware of how this race meant to him and offered to take this endeavour on...
>>30630966Thankfully, he had qualified on the first day (9th Fastest too, getting your sponsorship quite a bit of publicity among other things) and you basically asked to leave until the next Sunday, citing all of the work you had left to do: A Deal with such-and-such on Sunday, organizing the Official "Get Together" Dinner Party on the week of the tournament, finalize a few more deals about some of the stages and the TV Contracts, OK the various print and TV adds that your media companies were trying to push through...Hell, going out there and watching your most trusted advisor into South Town's affairs risk his life for fame and glory at 230+ MPH felt like a respite from .. "What did he say? 'Racing is my Wife; Fighting's more like my mistress?" you mumble in your half-awake state, checking the time to be at around 8 O'clock in the morning and the plane you were in grounded and already in your private hangar at Howard Intermational Airport."Sir? Your car is waiting for you" a stewardess in a smart, rather tight "Blue & Champain Gold" uniform quietly states."Thank you... Cindy?" you drearily answer, taking a quick look at her name-tag (That just so happened to be near her chest...) as you yawn and take a quick stretch or two before getting off of your jet and into the back of your Rolls-Royce Phantom, Kazunori Kazahaya opening the back door for you and sitting in the other passenger-side seat."Where's Bizuki?" you ask him, not exactly liking the fact that your calls to her over the last few days haven't been returned as Kazunori asks the driver to head back to "The Paragon Group's" head office in South Town."Well... That's kind of the problem Sir; She's been MIA for the last 72 Hours and our crack surveilance teams and informants claim that she's been stirring up a REAL hornet's nest since you left' Kazunori explains, handing you a dossier of some of the more... "Interesting" things she's done.
>>30631221You take a good look at the first photo on the opening page and ask "Kazahaya... WHY exactly do I need to take a look at your package this early in the morning? Or even at all?" in a "Deadpan Monotone" and hand the dossier back to him, finding that it was filled with photos of him in various states of undress...He looks at you for a second, then spots his mistake and blushes a little, explaining "Sorry sir; Got an offer to do a test-shoot for Playgirl...""I can clearly see that" you reply, this morning already getting off to a "Great Start" you darkly think as he hands you"OK... So what exactly DID she do?""Kidknapped two secret agents, tried to kill one more and that girl that looks like Draco's Ex" Kazahaya quickly says, then adds "But our contact on the inside claims that she was captured by the same group that was looking to gather intel on us and the deal you made with Govenor.""Fan-Fucking-Tastic" you sigh, the "Hits" keeping-on comming this morning as you wonder whether or not to "Roll with the punches" and cut this off NOW, rather than later, as for this to come up NOW, less than two weeks away from the apple of your eye that you had started to pay for OUT OF OUR OWN POCKET to host would be untennable in your eyes...On the other hand, you knew that this might've been yet another one of Bizuki's "Games" and think that it might be best to just have a sit-down chat with her and set up some "Ground Rules" to keep this kind of thing from happening again. After all, she's honestly one of the best people on your payroll you have for dealling with some of the more "Fantastical" sides of South Town's underworld. Also, you have to admit that you always thought of her as being the BALLS INSANE "Little" (She's around 19 Years old) sister you never had, even inspite of her eccentricities; Killing her in cold blood, or even hiring an assasin could be hard to do, even for a "Ruthless" businessman like yourself...

Friendly Reminder that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkBMAHUkibY>>30632062>>30631841>>30631800You think long and hard about how to advance regarding this situation, as you dearly don't want to have to hurt Bizuki if there was any other way... But unfortunately, you have standards to uphold and professionalism to maintain, ESPECIALLY as you've spent so much time, money and effort to try and warm up sponsors and the media that this kind of thing INS'T a part of South Town anymore... "Get me my little black book, Kazahaya... I need to make a call" you tell him with a sigh as he nods. What's the worse feeling about this is that while the kind of hedonistic lifestyle Bizuki most-likely leads is perfectly A-OK in your book, the fact that she has to be so public about it (And seemingly gleefull about her actions) is a VERY big red flag in your eyes."Sir, If I may interject? Who could we even call for that? it's not like we're dealing with some little girl here..." Kazahaya asks, trying to be respectful of your rather difficult decision."I honestly don't know... The Flying Brigands are a No-Go, Les Assassins des Fauteuils Rollents would probably be worthless and too expensive to fly out for just ONE job..." Jean mutters, flicking through the old-school, leather-binded adress book looking through it and stopping at a name he doesn't recognise. "Who's this?" you ask as the car slows to a crawl, a traffic jam slowing you and Kazahaya down out near Sound Beach, pointing at an Itallian-sounding name (Or possibly Spanish, or even a Psuedonym, as "Panni" could mean just about anything in a book like this).He takes a look at the name and replies "I honestly don't know... I got this book from Uncle Oz a while ago."You look at the name some more, trying to think of who it might be when you notice that the car's completely stopped. Curious, you roll down the privacy divider and ask "Excuse me, but why are we stopped?"
>>30632466"Seems to be some sort of festival out here sir; Traffic's a REAL mess right now" the driver replies in an almost-realistic-sounding English Accent as you roll down the window, unzip your seatbelt and look around a little bit, seeing the traffic really start to stack up about 8 cars ahead of you at a small building on the corner of a T-Section up ahead..."Damn it... I'm late for a meeting as-is" You mutter as the window and the provacy divider goes back up and you buckle yourself back in, asking Kazunori "Who have we hired to be the back-up secretary? Because I need her number NOW.""She should be at the same front desk as always" Kazahaya replies and you hurriedly "Paragon Group North American headquarters; Can I ask who's calling?" an unfamiliar voice on the other end asks, sounding slightly "Sultry"."It's Jean Gabriel.""Oh... Sorry for not recognising you; How can I help?" she asks."Well, for a start you can call up the Taiwaneses investors that are coming over in about.. 15 Minutes? 20? And tell them that I'm currently delayed and en-route to the building.""Very well... Anything else?" she asks, sounding like she's filing her nails while taking your call."Yes... I want a traffic report on Highway Route 417 South, near Sound Beach" you reply as you start to hear parked cars blasting music and generally treat this "Jam" like a real-live festival, the sounds of martial combat lightly muffled coming from somewhere nearby..."One Moment... There we are. It looks like that there's a lingerie shop holding an autograph signing near there that's caused the delay, though I'm honestly surprised at how much traffic that IS there right now sir" she explains."Very well... Thank you, Ms.?""Mature, sir" she says before you hang up, then tell Kazunori "She seems nice.""Yeah, she's... "Different", that's for sure" Kazahaya replies as you ponder what to do while stuck in this traffic jam?

Kazunori Kazahaya asks, the sounds of the traffic and the honking of a few nearby horns starting to seep into the backseat of your posh Rolls-Royce.You think it over for a few seconds, a half-baked ploy to "Act a Fool" (As Kazahaya would put it) taking shape as you look over and quickly tell him "Well... There seems to be an autograph session at a Lingerie shop up ahead; Stay with the car for me while I check it out?", asking him a rhetorical question before unbuckling your seatbelt, opening up the "Suicide Doors" (Referred to by RR themselves as "Coach Doors") and stepping out into the street.You feel a little bit like a naughty schoolboy and relish in how eckless this all feels as you start to manuever your way down the road and head towards the white building on the corner of the T-Section up ahead, wondering what all the fuss is about, Kazunori quickly trailing behind you as you hear him yell "No disrespect sir, but that was a TOTAL Dick move!""I know! That's why I'm not docking your pay for the day!" You yell back as you start to see that whatever Mature had told you didn't seem to be accurate, as you've stumbled into one HELL of an honest-to-god street fight.===>You now assume control of Katja Hartkern===The catalogue launch had gone swimmingly at the start, with a surprising amount of people waiting in line to get you autograph and take photos with you (Though your fanbase was probably the smallest, with Tsuyako being the closest to your tally of popularity and Mai, Shermie & Fiona all more-or-less equal). Still, it was actually kind of fun just to talk and hang around a few fans, most of them not even all THAT creepy... But the mood all changed when a certain troublemaker you refer to as "Orochi Christ Superstar" arrived...
>>30635921>New Thread Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7StC3Ob9cXIHe had been dressed incognito and eventually tried to open fire on you with a concealed handgun, though Hatsune was able to help you "Dodge the Bullet" (QUITE litterally) as the others sprang into action and delivered a "Red-Ass" beat-down... Only for "Justin's" hired muscle to arrive late, a bandage across his nose and a big, white fur coat over his shoulders.Hatsune recognised him as "Mr. Bigshot Oki" from the Pao Pao cafe last night, his tall, muscular frame somewhat hidden by his grey clothes, his odd hairstyle making him stick out like a sore thumb (As if he didn't already)... Sensing a deep urge to pay back the favor Hatsune, you challenged him to fight outside; Curiously enough, he agreed and formally introduced himself as Ryuji Yamazaki, but only on the condition that he'll fight Hatsune next if you lost... Though you were able to lead him out into a much more open space, the fight hand't gone well for you so far. It seemed as though Yamazaki had been in control of this fight from the start; His long, snake-like arms lashed out at you and kept you from getting up close to him to dish out REAL damage... And on to of that, on the one time you DID get in and land a decent combination of attacks, he grabbed you by one arm and head-butted you away in a large explosion of energy, knocking you down and away from him as you struggle a little to land a Ukemi.Meanwhile, Yamazaki took a hand he had in his pocket the whole time and starting to sretch his neck a little, mumbling something in cantonese as you wonder how you're going come out of this fight in one piece...?===>Your Health: 56%>Yamazaki's Health: 81%>Your Ki: 46%, 2 Bars>Yamazaki's Ki: 57%, 1 Bar of Ki

However, you don't take the bait and yell "Hey Hatsune! You wannna' go another round with this clown?!""Gimme a minute!" you hear back as Yamazaki scowls at you, then yells at Hatsune in VERY rude Japanese that you don't even want to TRY to think about, much less repeat in your mind as you rush towards him, but hop back just out of range of his "Sand Scatter" attack, Hatsune distracting him long enough for you to try and close the gap.However, Yamazaki tries to kick you with one of his rather-beefy legs, then grabs a switchblade out of his right pocket and tries to stab you with it, slicing wildly and laughing like a maniac all the while... It took every last ounce of speed you had to dodge the slashes, your top getting ripped open slightly with each slice (And revealing that you forgot to wear a Bra today...), though you block his last attack with your padded glove and sock him in the Jaw, stunning him long enough to "Power Up" and hit him with your newest attack... "Fuujin to Raijin no TENSHOUKEN!!!" you scream, drilling him into the air with your electrified, twirling uppercut and launching him into the pavement... And notice that he's still raring to fight you, though he's got a nasty cut that's trickling blood down his forehead, only amplifying the creepyness he exudes.Your eyes widen as he jumps up and grabs you with his right arm, your hop back being just a tad short of missing him ashe performs "The Drill" DM on you, road-hauling you across the ground and stomping you in the stomach, ribs and kidneys...
>>30638064... However, Hatsune Horikawa knocks him out of it with a well-placed punch to his back, bowling him over and away from you before she helps you up as you start to cough up a little bit of blood..."I'll take this turkey home, OK?" She tells you, putting her coat over your shoulders and feeling too winded and hurt to argue for once.

Unfortunately for you, it doesn't seem like he's actually taking damage and tries to kick you in the crotch. Luckily for you, his attack telegraphed itelf and you jumped over him, using your hold as a fulcrum and hop back onto your feet, Yamazaki looking a little dizzy but not exactly sure if you should punce on him right now...===Your Health: 79%>Yamazaki's Health: 41% & in a "Dizzy" state>Your Ki: 31%, 2 Bars of Ki>Yamazaki's Ki: 56%, No Bars===>A.

TAP! TAP! TAP!" all while you can hear police sirens off in the distance...He looks at you with an almost goofy grin on his face, clearly enjoying this a little as he asks you "You're fucking TOUGH for an old bitch! Why don't you work for me and we can RULE this shit hole together!?"You smile, then tell him "Been there, done that" in English as you let go of the hold and drop-kick him in the chest, stunning him long enough to grab him up by in a "Fireman's Carrry", some people in the crowd chanting "F-U! F-U1!" before you knock him out cold with "The Eye of the Storm", the adrenaline flowing through your body feeling welcome as you slowly get up and raise you hand high in the air, your daughter and Fiona Graves both being the first people to give you a hug as the police start o break the traffic jam up and scatter the crowds away a little...===>KO!

>>30644059 >A. Continue to play through this scenario as Hatsune Horikawa.Asian Wrasslin' MILF quest? Count me in! Why does the real MC seem so bland in comparrison?
>>30645301Are you voting for B or C Hermes?
Rolled 61>>30644889>Why does the real MC seem so bland in comparrison?Because the main character was already intended to be a sore thumb sticking out in the King of Fighters roster (muscular, black, butch, scarred), but the QM has made side characters all more outlandish and standout than the MC herself. To put it another way, Katja was meant to make the rest of the KoF ladies look bland by comparison, but she has managed to surround herself with characters that make HER look bland by comparison.That's why.
Rolled 64>>30645571That, plus compared to a major chunk of the KoF roster, Katja is still notably weak by comparison. Notice that most every named character that isn't Yuri has manhandled her in a fight.
>>30645571That's very well-put Anon, though there's a secondary motive and an In-Universe explanation for these seemingly "Non-Traditional" fighters appearing in a new KOF...>>30645608True... But when you start to think about whoshe's foought and how much strength she's gained from the start of the quest, I personally feel that Katja's growth level HAS grown; It's just that the opposition she's had to face has too...>>30644513>>30644641>>30645301>You now resume Direct Control of Katja Hartkern>Date: Sunday, May 20th>Time of Day: 12:52 PMYou were quietly escorted away from the front row of the fight between Hatsune Horikawa and Ryuji Yamazaki, though a part of you wanted to get back in there and inish it yourself, your body recovering MUCH faster than it ever had before and filling yourself with an unbridled energy...Though a part of that gung-ho attitude faded when you looked down and saw that Yamazaki had basically sliced your shirt open, letting anyone within eyesight get a good look at more of your female form than you had liked.You had to thank Hatsune for giving you her coat, as even though it was a little small for you, it was enough to cover yourself up as you and the others walked over to her after her victory, Tsuyako hopping up and down with her like they had just discovered a cure for cancer or something as you could overhear Shermie talking to the police that had arrived, sparring you the trouble of having to deal with them (As you STILL couldn't quite look an average member eye-for-eye) as Mai asks "How are you holding up?""Not too terrible, actually... Why?" you reply, switching Hatsune's jacket with your own with your back to the slowly dispersing crowd, traffic starting to flow a liitle again as you and the group walk back across the street, gleefully watching as camera's snap "Justin Beiber" getting arrested while you try to holdback the urge to go over and kick his ass some more....
>>30646535I apologise profusely for not posting the second half of this update; For whatever reason, I had fallen asleep at the lap-top without actually posting, half-dreaming that I had... Regardless, said update is on the way ASAP and that one will officially pause updates until around 9:30-10 AM PST, 12:30-1 PM EST... Again, no words can cover up tne shame I'm feeling of dropping a quest like this and not officially following up with a "Proper" pause point.
>>30646535"Nothing" Mai smirks as you sadly watch the cops get to do that before you could reach him, gleefully looking on as they press him down onto the hood of a police cruiser and then cart him off into the back of a specially-prepared van."Pardon me, miss, but haven't we met before?" you hear a sort-of familiar voice ask as the two of you turn around to see Jean Gabriel standing on the corner near the entrance to "Fantastique La Femmr" in an impressive outfit (Blue-ish suit with a slightly golden hue to it, no Tie and a white button-up shirt on display)..."Hey yeah... You're in early" you try to make sound natural, Mai checking him out as you can see Jean try to "Turn Up the Heat" between the two of you, not exactly sure what his angle could be..."I was on my way to a meeting and got stopped by your charms fighting that man..." Jean replies.Mai seems almost slightly smitten as she whispers "He's kind of hot... What's his name?"You don't answer her and ask Jean "Really? ... how'd I do?", trying to get the flow of conversation to flow and favor more to stuff you can REALLY talk about..."Flawless... Though you were a bit unlucky to get your biggest attack to come off, only for your face to get pounded into dirt by the character that got away" Jean replies, then quickly asks "I know that you're not exactly in a well state of dress, but would you like to go out for lunch?"You look at him and try to hide what you're thinking (Mainly "WHAT in the actual FUCK is he tryingto pull on me?") as Shermie walks out the front door and asks "Katja, could you come inside? We have a few things to...", Pausing when she sees Jean. "Ah! Sorry for my intrusion, Monsiuer."None taken, Mademoiselle" Jean replies to her, doing a light bow to her before turning his attention back to you, a funny feeling rising up in your stomach as you can see another guy minding his own business a ways behind him, yet undoubtably eavesdropping on your conversation with him...

It's not like I don't want to go out with you tonight, but I haven't really dated in a long time and" you start to say, though Jean cuts you off and the others more or less are talking amongst themselves (Fiona, Tsuyako & Hatsune talking about how the fight went AFTER you had let Hatsune take your place)."Neither have I... And I know I top-quality surgeon that could take a look and have you healed in no time at all.""Sure you could" you think to yourself, as you hear Mai quip "Honestly? With looks like that?", then puts a hand over her mouth and plushes slightly at letting that thought slip out...

I REALLY don't feel like going anywhere except a hospital right now."Before Jean could interject, Mai backs you up by saying "Yeah... I think we need to get you out to the clinic pretty quickly", then yells "Hey! Fiona! Can you get me my keys?!"Fiona Graves"I... See. I'll see you around then" Jean replies, trying not to sound dejected as he turns on his heels and walks away, an obvious slump in his stature as he heads back down the street with that other suited guy that you had spotted earlier.The two of you turn around and start to walk together, Mai shouldering you to play up your injuries as you whisper "Thanks; You're a REAL life-saver, y'know?""No problem... Though i don't know why you'd want to give that guy the cold-shoulder; He's almost as pretty as Andy" Mai replies, absentmindedly thinking out loud again as Fiona & Tsuyako head over to you, worried looks on their faces."It's a long, complicated story i should'nt try to be talkin' about" you tell her as you look up to the others and sort of shrug, explaining "I guess my body's feelin' it right now... Can one of you ride my bike out to The Kagura Clinic for me? Ineed to get a check-up.""My mom'll probably do it" Tsuyako replies, then says "Let me go ask her" before heading over to"Shit Kat, I'm amazed that you're even STANDING after something like that" Fiona tells you, shouldering up your other arm as she admits "I thought he went fucking New Jack on you and almost jumped in to beat him up for you.'"Yeah... It was all down to Tsuyako's mum coming in at the right time, because if he kept goin' I'd probably be pushing up daisies right now" you reply in a matter-of-fact tone as Shermie heads up and gives you a soft, rather tender hug."I'm SO sorry for Chris acting like this..." she almost sobs, really nuzzling up near your chest.
>>30654259"Hey, it's alright; I'm still 'ere aren't I? It ain't the first time I've had to deal with wankers like him either" you reply, not 100% comfortable with her pressing up to your almost-bare chest as you spot Hatsune and her daughter walk over to you."How you holdin' up?" Hatsune asks, toweling hersel off as you note that she's got muscles and tone that damn-near match yours, her silhouette reminding you of Blue Mary for a little bit."I'll hold up... But thanks for havin' my back out there" you reply, gingerly lifting your arm up and putting it on her shoulder. "I guess I owe you another one eh?"Hatsune grins, reminding you yet again of a slightly younger, female Takuma as she says "Nah, I'll call it square... But gawd DAMN that was fun! Makes me almost want to get back in the ring with all of y'all...", pausing to take a few more breaths."Mooom..." Tsuyako wines, again the parallels between her and Yuri Sakazaki a little too blatant to ignore as Shermie smirks, then says "Well, I'm looking for a third member of my team... You want to try out with me and Yashie-Kun tomorrow?""Hell, why not? If that guy was a baseline I could probably hack it" Hatsune muses, though Tsuyako"What about your neck? Or your back?""What...? I never broke either of them; I told you a million times that the "Injury" I had was faked so I could be around you some more" she replies, Fiona's eyes widening."Dude... Really? Because I knew a guy that ran a website for Women Wrestling that claimed that was the case, but DAMN... You played us all" Fiona gushes, trying to show her admiraion for Hatsune "Yeah... I was getting sick of doing the high-flyer shit too; I wanted to have a legit excuse to go back to my old-school "Shooter" style again" Hatsune admits, then asks "So... Anyone want to go to lunch first? I'm fuckin' STARVING right now..."
>>30654606"Sounds good to me... I really feel fine, honest; I just wanted an excuse for getting away from that guy..." you admit, getting a slightly miscievious look from Mai as you glance over your shoulder and see that yes, he's actually out of sight and his car's gone..."What, you finally find a guy to go after?" she teases as you blush, then adds "Take it from me; It's easier to try and play up someone's affection than try to build it up.""Wot?

Buut decide against it and tell everyone that "I'm up for some Lunch... Pao Pao Cae 2? Or drive out to King's place?""I wouldn't mind a quiet meal at La Illusion..." Mai says, throwing her opinion out there and wanting to limit the amount of uniquely "South Town" brand of craziness that seems to be the heart and soul of the city."Screw that, I want to check that other Cafe out" Hatsune interjects, clearly still on an adrenaline rush from fighting Yamazaki..."I'dunno, I never really liked their food all THAT much... They're more of a bar than anything else" Tsuyako points out, though her mother seems to shrug at her words."So? Nothing like kickin' back with a cold one to take the edge off after a fight like that..."Tsuyako makes an odd, indescribable face at her mother, her expression and general body language suggesting that bringing her mom out here was a BIG mistake and Mai backs her up."Honestly, the Pao Pao Cafes are nice, but they don't REALLY come alive until 6-7 O'clock at night... Besides, unless you're REALLY lucky, you won't find anybody in there to fight.""Why don't we just ask to spar until somebody shows up?" Fiona asks, Hatsune nodding in agreement as you feel like a bunch of bickering schoolgirls outside of Shermie's boutique (Even though you're pretty sure that you're all old enough to drink, Tsuyako being slightly not-too sure about)..."Well... What d'you wanna do Kat? I'm cool with whatever you're up for" Fiona asks, snapping your attention back.>A. Head down to the Pao Pao Cafe 2.>B. Ride out to "La Illusion" with the girls.>C.

I just want to stop friggin' talkin' about eatin' and just put some food in my stomach" you reply, feeling your head ache a little.Hatsune grumbles something in Japanese that you can't quite hear, but says "...'Kay. I'll follow y'all out alright?" before heading towards your beloved motorcycle, her personal helmet in hand."Well, It's not going to be a total waste at least; I just called up Andy and he's at King's with a friend of his" Mai tells you, Fiona & Tsuyako as she leads all of you out to her (Andy's) BMW 5 Series."Well, what're we waitin' for?" you ask and the four of climb in, Mai firing up the engine and sound system blasting a "Crunchy" baseline to a rockin' instrumental track from some band from days gone by and humbly drift off to sleep, the ride and your injuries feeling as though they faded away like a bad dream when Fiona wakes you up after Mai parked the car out front of "La Illusion", the sound of Hatsune on your 'bike riding up behind your shoulder, it feels like."Hey, Kat... Katja? You still with us?" Fiona asks, a hint of worry in her voice as you drowsily respond with a few "Hmm's?", then force your eyes open."You didn't hit your head too hard out there, did you?" Fiona asks as she cracks her door open, a slightly cool breeze blowing through into the car."Nah, most of his hits went t'my body" you reply as you yawn, wiping the crust off of your eyes before unbuckling your seatbelt and hopping out, doing a few quick stretches as Mai locks the car with a keyless remote.
Had to commute unexpectedly and my cellphone died en-route; Here's the second haf of the update.>>30661330"OK, ready?" she asks, not even waiting for response as King opens up the door to her establishment and welcomes all of you inside, "La Illusion" not OFFICIALLY opening for a few more hours...You shrug, waiting for a few seconds and admiting the look of the building with Hatsune & Fiona, "Fio-Chan" asking "How're you feelin'?""Hmm?" you ponder, a verbal question mark coming from your mouth as Fiona rephrases her question."You just seem kind of down, that's all... Penny for your thoughts?"You smirk a little at Fiona actually giving you a penny from her back pocket as well as a handing you a plain, Black T-Shirt with "Big Red Machine" on the back to go over your own tattered piece of clothing (As well as allowing you to give Hatsune her jacket back), but you let outa long sigh, the outcome of your fight with Yamazaki weighing heavily on your mind."I just... It just sorta feels like EVERY SINGLE person I've met's stronger then me, or fought better than I have lately... And it's just pissin' me off a little, y'know? Like, I try to get to the goal and score, but somebody else beats me to it, y'know?"Fiona nods, understanding where you're comming from as Hatsune puts a hand on your shoulder, then tells you a small anecdote that Fiona, Tsuyako & Mai have heard about a thousand times since she had arrived and started to train them."Kid, I'm gonna tell you what my coach told me when I first started as a young'un and couldn't sell hits for shit and had the charisma of a Two-By-Four, but could grapple with ANYBODY, anytime and anywhere; He sat down with me and said " If you choose to learn what I have to teach, it'll become your whole life. Everything you do and everything you have, will be tied into the path of a warrior" she pauses, taking a few seconds to clearly remember the next part of her speach.
>>30662794"It's like dealing with the most impatient lover on the face of the earth. It won't always be kind... It WILL break your mind, your body and your soul. But the rewards are vast, you'll see the world with open eyes... And you'll NEVER be afraid."You look over your shoulder at Hatsune, her words yet again sounding like something Takuma Sakazaki would say (Well, if he weren't such a goof-ball anyway) as she adds "And right now, you're smack-dab in the middle of that stage where you're doubting yourself; You can chart your growth by inches while others seem to be gaining MILES ahead of you... And all I can say..." She pauses again, taking a breath as Fiona leads the three of you up to the entrance, "Is stop thinking about it. Let your progession come naturally to you and learn that the fight game ISN'T all about your fancy moves and "Ancient Japanese Mystic Hoo-Doo": It's about your conditioning."Fiona chips in as she says along with Hatsune "You gotta be strong enough to bring the pain, hearty enough to take it, and confident enough to not get rattled!" before the three of you head inside, one of the blonde twins that help run the place respectfully closing the door behind you."And just remember, if you can get all of those on your side and in spades you WILL go far" Hatsune quickly mentions as you join Mai & Tsuyako at the far end of the bar, an odd sense of Deja-Vu overwhelming you as you sit in the same spot that you had around two months before with Ryo, Robert, Yuri & The Bogard Brothers..."Can I get you anything?" One of the "Twins" asks, handing out a few menus as you try to recall what the actually serve here for foo, the requisite Foster's from a draft already a given...
>>30663459>A. Play through the rest of the Day as Katja Hartkern and see what kind of food "La Illusion" serves...>B. Time-Skip to 5/21 as Katja.>C. Time-Skip to later that night and go on a "Dream Sequence" as Katja, waking up on 5/21.>D. Assume control of...? (Write-In Vote to gain control of another character for a possible "Side-Story")>E. Time-skip to the start of "The Infinite Match", because this shit's getting BORING GOD DAMN IT! (AKA "The /qtg/ Option")
>>30663521>A.Keep goin' for more crazy stories from Tsuyako's mom.
>>30663521>A. Play through the rest of the Day as Katja Hartkern and see what kind of food "La Illusion" serves...How can you stop thinking about it when you've been targeted by corporate thugs, been run out of two different homes, kicked out of your dojo, mind-controlled, been in a coma, and been almost explicitly killed on no less than FIVE separate occasions -- including just recently -- all in the span of just a couple months? And she's getting lectured by people who've already had it made, to boot?NO SHIT Katja's in the dumps.
>>30664148Don't forget being in the hospital at least twice, having her own moves self-destruct on her at least twice to almost-lethal effect, and suffered a panic attack when forced to deal with women obviously more beautiful (on paper) than her and confront her up-to-this-point-nonexistant sexuality.So yeah, easy for you to say.
>>30663521 >A. Play through the rest of the Day as Katja Hartkern and see what kind of food "La Illusion" serves...Yeah... As >>30664148 & >>30664277 point out, Katja has a TON of emotional baggage on her mind right now and I think it might be time for her to air some of it.
>>30664148>>30664277>>30664829I'm pretty sure Katja gets the whole "don't think about it, just let it happen and run with it" when it comes to power growth, but shit like this can't be ignored. Fate has conspired against her, and there's only so much one can do to counteract fate.
>>30665568It's not just fighting. It's...fucking everything, really.
>>30663938>>30664148>>30664277>>30664829"Foster's, from a draft please" you tell her, handing your menu back as to fill up in your mind, understanding Hatsune's words but feeling as though you're being patronized or put-upon as a quiet tension starts to build in the room, the chatter of the others getting tuned out as you chew on her words, the urge to stand up and kick her ass and yelland scream at how NONE of the people in the room have ever gone through what you've experienced over the last three months...When Mai snaps you out of your inner melancholy and asks "Hey, "Earth to Katja?" You sure you're alright?"You look around the table, a "Long" expression on your face as you admit "... No, I'm not", then quietly take a BIG sip from the beer on your right, revelling in the bitter taste."You wanna talk about it?" Fiona dutifully asks, placing her hand over yours and squeezing on it hard enough to get your attention.You look at her and fight the urhge to cry, instead taking a long, weary sigh as you reply "No... But it's just, It's like the world has been crashin' down on me the last three months, tellin' me to stop fightin', throwing everything and kitchen sink at me to PROVE that I should quit fightin'..." You pause, taking a breath as you continue voicing your thoughts. "And you know, I'm starting to think that it's true... That it's just me denyin' fate; That somethin'll happen to me and knock me out for good before I ever get a chance to grab that brass ring, or even try..."The room goes quiet as no one wants to try and refute your beliefs, all of them knowing the kind of trauma you've been through... Except Hatsune, it seems, as she asks "Oh come on, it can't be THAT bad... Could it?"You glare at Hatsune, your anger rising to a boiling point as you icily ask "Have you ever gone to a hospital twice in three months? Or have your training and your moves almost KILL you twice?"
>>30666159>Have you ever gone to a hospital twice in three months?Probably a bad question to ask the former joshi-puroresu ace.
>>30666583Katja's in the fuckin' ZONE chief; Now's not the time to question her logic... Also appologize for the delay between updates; It's a bit hard for me to be up as late as it is on the west coast trying to edit out the words to get that certain, intangible "Feel" I think the scene should have.>>30666159Her eyes widen as everyone else in the bar gets a "Varying degrees of DAMN!"-Face as you start to unload and unearth all of the bad luck and madness you've experienced ver the last three months, feeling as though a great weight has started to lift off of your shoulders..."No? Thought so... Shit, I've been run out of two different homes, kicked out of my dojo, MIND-CONTROLLED by some bloody perveted young girl, been in a COMA, tussled with gangsters of all stripes AND have survived no less than FIVE, FUCKING, ASSASINATION attemps... INCLUDING one just today!"You stand up out of your chair and quickly point at Hatsune, yelling "And you're feedin' me the same horseshit the Dojo had been every day of my life for last five years?! YOU'RE TELLING ME TO JUST "STOP THINKING ABOUT IT" WHEN I CAN'T EVEN FIGURE OUT WHAT IT ALL MEANS?! FUCK YOU! AND YOUR FUCKING HIGH HORSE!!!"The silence in the room is unbearable as Hatsune & King both glare at you, Mai & Fiona facepalming at your blow-up and Tsuyako shaking her head as her mother slowly, confidently gets up out her seat.You can feel electricity in the air as you hold your ground and get ready to fight as Hatsune confidently walks over to you, the expression on her face unwavering as you match her glare-for-glare, King almost ready to throw all of you out...When she simply says "Yes... Yes you should. Because I've suffered almost as much as you have" in a plain, near-unnacented Japanese (Clear enough for your limited knowledge to understand it) and your rage seems to simmer to a broil."Mom, you don't have to talk about your-" Tsuyako starts to say, though Hatsune cuts her off.
>>30667237"No, it's OK Sox: I'm doin' this for me too" You hear her tell her daughter, one eye still looking at you as she turns her head to face you and yells "OK, I'll admit that going through all of that in THREE MONTHS is pretty fuckin' hardcore, but guess what? You aren't the only one with that kind of baggage to lug around..."Your expression is seemingly cut in granite as you stand your ground, not really impressed and your rage not exactly subsiding as Hatsune starts to air out her own troubles."Do you know how many bones I've broken and bruises I've gotten over the years Pro-Wrestling Day-In and Day-out? Or how many friend's I've lost over the years because they couldn't handle it the way I did?" she pauses, takes a breath and adds "Fuck, I mean my tag-team partner of nearly ten years, ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS, is in so much pain from wrestling that she has to live out in California? Because the nly thing that cure her pain is straight-up illegal in Japan."You raise an eyebrow at that and are about to ask what that has to do with the conversation when Hatsune interjects by explaining "And she's one of the LUCKY ones, too... Though, I can see what you mean about having "Your training and your moves almost KILL you."You still stand and quietly listen to her, your inner rage getting calmed slightly as this all makes you think of when Terry Bogard bared his soul for you after a few beers. "You want death threats and botched hit-jobs? OK... Well, I ended up dating a guy that was a Yakuza once in highschool and through him claiming about how I "Broke his heart" when we split up, guess what ended up happening? Trained fucking killers getting sent after me at least once or twice a month for FOUR YEARS, THAT'S what!"Your eyes widen at that as Mai even says "SERIOUSLY?" at that, though Hatsune doesn't miss a beat as she adds "That's why I had to move out to Okinawa after I had my baby girl here in the first place..."
>>30667237>>30667924Figured it'd be one of those "You think YOU got it bad?" discussions.The difference here is that while Hatsune got it spread out over the course of several years, Katja got it all at once, which only compounds past traumas (of which there is only one of any real note).
>>30668043True... But it also seems that Tsuyako wasn't lying when she said that "My mom makes Great Teacher Onizuka look like a chump".>>30667924Your mind flashes back to that one "Banchou" you had "met" in a dream for some strange reason and ask her "Did this guy happen to wear a headband like Tsuya's and a Black jacket?" without any trace of malice in your voice.Hatsune nods and says "You know, he did", adding "Plus, you know, I had to deal with my parents DISOWNING me because I didn't stop wrestling after college, creepy fans that STILL try shit when I'm just alone minding my own business and the fact that, fuck it, I WAS a perfectionist back in my youth and I was NEVER satisfied with my performances or results in wrestling, Pro or otherwise..."Her voice tails off and you relax a little, understanding what she's trying to do and once again making you feel foolish for "Popping-Off" like you had... Though Hatsune doesn't let up and says "So... Yeah, I think I DO know how you feel right now. Shit, I'll bet anything that EVERYONE in this room's gone through at least one of the problem's you've faced head-on in the last three months in their life."You sigh and close your eyes, nodding and letting your head drop low as you hear Hatsune conclude "And THAT'S why I know you're in a lot of pain right now... Of course, your shit having happened in three months compared to 20 Years on mine? No contest, you're the tougher girl than I am...""I know, I know" you quietly say, then lean in and whisper "But did you almost get... Well, you know? At some point?"Hatsune looks at you quizically for a second or two, then her eyes widen in acknowledgeent of what you're asking her. "Fuck me, now THAT'S something I can't say that I can share with you" she whispers back, adding "... I'm sorry that it happened to you though."You silently nod. then tell her "I think I wouldn't wish these last three months on my worst enemies sometimes..."
>>30668231"I can see why" Hatsune replies as the tension in the room eases a little, though it's mainly"Gawd, I'dunno how to fuckin' DEAL with all of this crashin' down on me at once..." you sigh, then wonder aloud "Maybe I SHOULD see a psychiatrist?""Dude, I think a shrink would probably pay YOU to leave him the fuck alone" Fiona jokes, then quickly adds "Which is why I'm here for you. Good or bad.""Me too" Tsuyako chips in, backing her supposed beau up."Well... Damn, my life's problems are small potatoes compared to yours, huh?" Mai admits, not really WANTING to play the part of a psychoanalyst but ot really wanting to look too disrespectful to your problems either. "I'll be around for you if you need my counseling.""See? Every storm's got a silver lining somewhere right?" Hatsune syays to try and cheer you up, adding "You're lucky as hell you've got all these people to help you out and care about you." "Yeah... And thanks for letting me air all this shit out today guys: I needed it" you sigh, then yell "Ah fuck it, next round's on me!"Fiona & Tsuyako both raise their glassses at you while Hatsune says "C'mon, give me a fuckin' hug kiddo" and you oblige for a few moments, feeling your though However, King ruins the mood a little by heading over and asking "Hey, Mai? Weren't Andy and Joe supposed to be here by now?"The room goes silent for a moment as the six of you start to realize that Andy and his friend Joe Higashi are nowhere to be found... Though Mai breaks the tension by stating "He left a text just five minutes ago; He's stuck in traffic out by the Airport", bringing a big sigh of relief throughout "La Illusion" as the drinks start flow a little more freely and you finally feel like you can start to relax a litt;e bit as you and Hatsune both sit back down...

You had shit to say and you said it; What's the problem?" Hatsune asks, sensing that despite your bravado a few moments ago that you're still fighting this feeling of almost permanent impotence in the eyes of the fighting gods you seem to lock horns with on a daily basis."... Nothin" you sigh out, then quickly explain "It's just that I get stuff like that happen to me all the time... And I don't feel anything, y'know? It's like the advice I get goes in one ear and out the other.""I was like that too for a while; I'd go over a match with somebody for like an hour sometimes, then flub it about a quarter of the way through and improvize" Fiona tells you as you spot Tsuyako & Mai quietly watching something on her cellphone.You aren't quite sure that you got your point across and try to get it across better as you clear your throat, then say "I just feel powerless all the time. It's like, I've been in around 7, maybe 8 fights over the last two weeks and I haven't really felt like I won any of them; Even when I did it feels like I scraped by on pure luck or something...""That's just a natural part of the fight game. I can tell you that even when I was young and cleaning house in my amatuer championships across Japan, I felt the same way you're feeling right now..." Hatsune offers, trying to cheer you up a little and impart some age and advice.
>>30672853"You had it relatively easy though, yeah? You had your way and could win as you please, but I keep feeling that every fight I get into I'm going to come out of it hurt regardless...""I think you spent too much time learning and not enough time actually fighting... And don't feel bad about it either; I saw that all the time when I was young" Hatsune "Yeah, when I started wrestling when I came out to America, some guys would come in and do every drill and exercise like they was born to wrestle, but put them on the mat and most of them would go soft and look like they're scared shitless to even BE there" Tsuyako adds before taking a sip"You wrestled GUYS in college?" Mai asks, practically taking the words right out of your mouth."Well, yeah; I couldn't make weight for the women's division if I tried... So I accepted a transfer student application and started wrestling guys out here" Tsuyako explains, shrugging like it was no real big deal to her."Huh... You never told me that" Fiona asks, then adds "You win any matches?"Tsyuako chuckles a little at Fiona's question, sounding a bit like her mother as she says "I ended up going 23-0-1, with the only draw on my record coming from another girl from an out-of-state school; She was just too fast for me to react in time." Fiona lets out a low whistle at that wile Hatsune beams with pride at her daughter's accomplishments as you sigh yet again, slowly dawning on the fact that it feels like you can't really talk about anything because you feel like you haven't DONE anything with your life...>A. Say nothing and listen to everyone else for a bit longer, if only to come up with a story or annecdote >B. Keep relatively quiet, but speak when spoken too.>C.

Had to commute; Here's the belated update.>>30674631>>30675622>>30673833You decide not to try and push yourself into the conversation and gingerly lay back in your chair, letting everyone else talk as you try to think up a funny story or cool annecdote...However, King knocks you out of your introspection by asking the table for menus, then whispering "You want another round from a bottle? My draft for Foster's is out and the guy hasn't come in yet...""Sure" you reply, not really caring too much as you try to not look awkward as you slip back into thinking about how and why you're damage doesn't seem to stack up compared to practically everyone else in the room (Give-or-Take King assistants), when Mai asks "What do you think Katja?""Er..." you start to say, thinking of a way to try and bluff your way through to an answer, but shake your head and reply "Sorry, I wasn't listening; What's the question?", taking the high road and admitting the truth."What's the better way to get around South Town? Car or Bike?" Hatsune asks, sounding slightly envious of your trusty Triumph Thruxton's performance."Bike obviously; I haven't driven a car in a long time... Plus, you can get to some pretty cool places on one" you reply, thinking about riding through some of South Town's seedier back alleys as the second round of drinks arrive."You ain't lookin' to MOVE 'ere, are you? Because I can tell ya' right now that you're just askin' to walk into a world of pain" you ask her, trying to tease her a little and get your mood up a bit."Nah... I like being in Okinawa with the occasional American tour; I'm thinking about renting a bike while I'm out here s'all" Hatsune responds as she polishes off her beer, Fiona stretching her neck out with Mai & Tsuyako taking turns playing "Rocket monkeys" on one of their cellphones....
>>30677014>A. Try to talk about fighting and how women seem to be put down upon in fighting and see where the flow of conversation goes.>B. Start talking about Bikes with Hatsune and see if you can at least get a "Ridin' Buddy" out of it...>C.

Something Else... ("Write-In" Vote)>E. Time-Skip to later that Night and go on a "Dream Sequence" as Katja Hartkern.>F. Time-Skip to the start of "The Infinite Match" because THIS. IS. BO-RING!

Connection issues flaring up again... Apologies all around for the wait Anons.>>30677770>>30679896>>30680102>>30680697>>30681687"Gotcha... You ride a lot?" you ask, trying to break the ice with Hatsune as she looks at with an incredulous, yet almost priedful look on her face."You kiddin' me? That's all I practically did outside of school or wrestling..." Hatsune muses, reflecting on her "Glory Days" a little bit as she adds "The freedom I'd feel when it was just me, the bike and some back road working together in harnony? Some of my best memories...""Shit, I'll toast to that Mate" you reply with a smile, holding your bottle up and toasting with her, Fiona chipping in as you hear her mumble "Ah, what the hell..." as food starts to arrive, the smell of it making you a little light-headed as you ask the waitress (One of the "Twins", you can't really which one) "I'll have what she's having please", pointing to Fiona's impressive grilled stake, somewhat rare."Damn, this food looks pretty good for a place like this..." Hatsune remarks before digging in, surprisingly deft at using a fork and a knife."Yeah, but I don't think you should eat too much of this stuff Mom; It's good, but it can get to you if you aren't used to it" Tsuyako chips in, thinking of the stomach ulcers that her mother would get from time to time, her diet being fairly strict and traditionally Japanese..."It smells too good not to have though" she replies before taking another bite."So, Katja... You found anyone yet?" Mai asks, her "Girlie" side showing a little as she mentions "That one guy was really digging on you hard...""Yeah... But I'm only humoring him so I can write a book about how it'll be "The Worst Date EVER" or somethin' when I'm older" you jest, then admit "Seriously though? I've got a couple of nibbles 'ere 'n' there, but nothing really to talk about yet... Besides, I'm waiting until the tournament ends to try and find a steady partner anyway."
>>30684826"That's pretty smart, you know; Sex can really kock the wind out of you and deplete your Ki if you aren't careful..." Hatsune mumbles, Tsuyako blushing at what her mom just said."Seriously?" Mai asks, hostility in her voice as Tsuyako looks like she's going through all of her worst nightmares at once."It's different strokes for different folks, sure, but I was always more driven and focused when I WASN'T getting any... Not that I would've, even when I had my looks; AJPW had a strict "Three No's" policy when I was wrestling with them and one of them was "Men"..." she replies. "Shit, one time I was out on some cross-promotion tour with some big-shot American company and one of the biggest stars AJPW's Women's Division had got fired because she got caught breaking that rule.""Oh yeah, "Tiger" Takahara... What was she like?" Fiona asks, genuinely curious about the "Storied" past of "Joshiresu" in Hatsune's time (Which was considered part of the "True Golden Age" of Professional Wrestling in Japan as a whole)."Hate to break it to you, but she was total fucking bitch that was a pain in the ass to deal with in-ring and out" Hatsune coldly replies, then starts to dish out some dirt. "The closest current wrestler I can think of is that Spanish guy in South Town Wrestling... Juan Cena?""No talent, cheated on everybody AND acted like a self-absorbed god?" Fiona asks, gleefully trying to piece the description together as you silently sit back and listen, nursing your beer."She was a bodybuilder that got into it way later than anybody else on the roster and basically fucked her trainer to get anywhere... And when everyone treats said trainer like a fucking divine being that can do no wrong, then you can guess how it can go from there..." Hatsune wearily explains, then takes a nice cut of her chicken breast as you start to wonder what's taking your food so long to cook?
>>30685145"It can't be any worse than when I started in WWC" Fiona says as Hatsune and Tsuyako's eyes both widen, nearly saying "Holy SHIT!" in exact same tone of voice."Dude, I swear to god I could probably write a book about all of the shit I saw there... Makes your Dojo's politics look like small-time schoolyard shit Kat" Fiona adds, then starts to explain how, among other things:The company rigged the votes of it's online polls to favor it's biggest star's matches, the head of the Booking Team became World Heavyweight Champion and EVERYONE was underpaid or not paid at all... The highlight being hearing how Fiona got bucked by a horse during a "Hardcore" Pay-Per-View Match in a stable, then dusted herself off and yelled "You fucking horse! I'm gonna kick your ass!"Yet another round of "Varying degrees of DAMN!"-Faces could be see around the table and the bar, King shaking her head as she finishes up the prep-work and officially opens "La Illusion" for business, Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi being the first two people to walk in, joe dressed rather stylishly in a button-up shirt and black slacks."A~ndy!~" Mai exclaims as she takes the excuse to get up and give her beau a big hug and a quick kiss on his cheek, Andy smiling a bit, but annoyed at Joe making funny faces, knowing that Mai couldn't look back at him."Hard day?" you hear him ask her, then hear Fiona conclude her story by saying "But you know what? If it weren't for that Horse, I probably wouldn't have gotten picked up by the SWF."Andy looks back at all of you and Joe tries not to laugh, Mai nodding and her face wordlessly conveying her mood."The fuck you lookin' at skyscraper?" Hatsune asks, trying to rib him a little as he recognizes Tsuyako sitting down next to her mother.You finish up your meal and seriously think it might be time to head somewhere else, or do SOMETHING to try and comprehend the incredible amount of "What in the actual FUCK" Fiona had just shared with all of you...
>>30685982>A. Offer to spar with sombody, hell, ANYBODY to try and clear your head and get back into training for the tournament.>B. Formally introduce yourself to Joe Higashi and try to diffuse any possible tension between him and the Horikawas, ESPECIALLY since he refused to fight Tsuyako over something as trivial as her body shape...>C.

(If Mai hadn't clued him and Joe in already, of course...)>D. Respectfully ask to leave and be alone with your thoughts for a while... Maybe check back in with King later tonight and hit her up for advice on how this tournament's going to go? Sje IS quite a veteran, after all...>E.

>>30686132>H. Something Else...Combine voting option B & D: We introduce ourselves to Joe Higashi (Trying to diffuse the possible tenaion he might have with Tsuyako &Hatsune), THEN respectfully head out on our own.
I like >>30686132's style.>>30688862>H.Combine B & D OP.

I sincerely apologize for fallling off of the face of the earth last night; I had initially intended to make >>30686132 a "Pause Updates" post, but ran out of space on it and quickly fell asleep afterwards. I also thank the Anons & Tiger for keeping this Quest Alive long enough for me to get back on the horse and start updating again.>>30686294>>30688571>>30688800>>30688862>>30689028>>30689371And it looks like a 3-Way TIE Between Options B, D and combining them... I'm tempted to just combine them all, but I'll leave it up to /tg/ to voice they're opinions on this (If anyone has any, of course).
>>30690168I've said bedore, I'll say ot again: Combine them like Voltron OP!
>>30690168Thirding >>30690183 & >>30690307.
>>30690183>>30690307>>30690580Just checking. I also had to take care of things around my house before I could settle in and start, so pardon my delayed response.>>30686294>>30688571>>30688800>>30688862>>30689028>>30689371>Updates Officially resume>You're still in Direct Control of Katja Hartkern>The Days until the start of "The Infinite Match" and Date remain Unchanged>Time of Day: 2:33 PMYou eye Joe a little, noting his natural-born arrogance and legitimate swagger as he walks over to your table, Tsuyako & Hatsune Horikawa glaring at him somewhat... You wonder why they're giving him such harsh looks, but then almost immediately recall when he had refused to fight Tsuyako because "I don't do fat chicks" (His words, not yours) and wonder if you should try to introduce yourself to try and break the tension... Though King does it for you as she asks him "I haven't seen you around in a while... Still out in the jungle?"Though you can tell that she was trying to be friendly, there was a slight tinge of hostility in her voice and figure that they've got a history of-sorts, what with them being kick-Boxers and alll...Joe brushes off King's query and replies "Nah, I had to move to the city for a change; I've been busy training up my next great disciple in Tokyo, ettin' ready for the tournament... YOu competing?"king starts to say "yes", but you cut her off and get up out your chair, feeling like you're almost towering over him by saying "Yeah, with me "n' Yuri Sakazaki" with a smile, holding out your hand and waiting to see if he'll shake it.Joe looks at you for a moment, a bit struck by your size but calmly shakes your hand. "They call me Joe.""Katja Hartkern... And I can speak some Japanese too" You reply, confidently speaking Jpanese to him in a vaguely Osaka-ben dialect butchered a little by your Austrailian heritage (With mai trying to make sense of what you said to him in her mind, but dropping it without a comment).
>>30691330"Cool... My English isn't as good as I want it to be anyway" Joe replies, then looks at the Horikawas still seated at the table and says "I came her to tell you that my disciple's in town... You want to go a few rounds with her at the Pao Pao?"Your eyes widen as you watch Hatsune & Tsuyako rise out of theirseats and yell "Fuck that, I want to fight YOU!" in almost perfect unision yet again, a little unnerved at"Mom, I NEED this one!" Tsuyako pleads, then points to Joe and says "This guy's been ducking me for nearly a MONTH now...""Hey hey, I don't duck ANYBODY, alright? I was in town getting my physical and wanted to get back home quickly enough to keep Kuan out of trouble" Joe replies, un botonning his shirt a little bit as you adds "But if anyone of you wants to try me now... Why don't we take it outside and settle it for real, eh?""Oh come on Joe, we don't need to do this right now" Andy Bogard replies, Mai standing near him with her arms crossed."Besides that, the only fighting I allow in my bar is when I kick somebody out" King cooly comments, tightening the grip around her gloves and looking as though she's ready to kick ALL of you out right now...>A. Offer to take everybody out to the original Pao Pao Cafe so that Joe, Tsuyako & Hatsune can settle their differences there (As well as see what kind of fighter Joe is)...>B. Ask King if there's somewhere nearby that would be good for doing this and ask if everyone involved wants to awalk there with you so that this conflict can be resolved.>C. Quietly slip away and tell King that you'll call her up later; You're in a virtual powder-keg of a situation right now and want to get away before the shrapnel of it hits you...>D. Punch Joe out and just start fighting him in "La Illusion"; You want to bar brawl with this snide little prick before anyone else can, for some reason...>E. Something Else... (Write-In Vote)
>>30691631>A little unnerved at their uncanny timing.Fixed.
>>30691631>D. Punch Joe out and just start fighting him in "La Illusion"; You want to bar brawl with this snide little prick before anyone else can, for some reason...#YOLO
>>30691631C. Let's not YOLO in our teammate's establishment. That's in really bad taste.
>>30691631>A.To The Pao Pao Cafe! Also, can we choose to control somebody during that fight?
>>30691631>>C. Quietly slip away and tell King that you'll call her up later; You're in a virtual powder-keg of a situation right now and want to get away before the shrapnel of it hits you...Joe is Joe. I meh'd.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ussCHoQttyQ
>>30692544>>30692931"What a bunch of bloody fools...." you think to yourself as you slowly start to walk back towards the exit, Joe & The Horikawas smack-talking each other (Which you basically tune out) and whiper "I'll be in by myself in a little bit; I'm sorry this got out of hand..." into King's ear.To your surprise, she grabs you by the arm and replies "If you walk out now I'll bar you from this establishment and kick you off of the team" in hushed tones, adding "YOU brought them all here? YOU deal with what you caused" in a whisper.You roll your eyes and sigh, feeling the urge to punch Joe in the face and start brawling with him (If only to spite King), but think better of it as Mai sorta voices what you were planning to ask."God, you guys are actling like little kids!" she yells, irritation in her voice as everyone except you turn to look at her, a vein comically forming on her forehead."If you want to fight, then head out to that alleyway behind this place, or go down to the Pao Pao Cafe or something..." she pauses, then tugs Andy by the arm and says "C'mon, we're leaving.""Dude, what the fuck? You're our ride!" Fiona yells, following Mai and Andy."Too fucking bad!" you hear her claw back as she practically drags Andy outside, Joe scratching his head and wondering aloud "I knew he was whipped, but DAMN...""Yeah... Pretty pathetic if you ask me" Fiona concurs, then says "Fuck it, let's just roll down to the Pao Pao Cafe and bust each other's heads there... Besides, they won't kick us out if we ask to use that area right?""Right" you reply, adding "And honestly, y'all can do what ya' want; I'm busy with other stuff I had planned today...""Sounds good..." Hatsune says, her "Red Mist" clearing a little bit as she and the others (Sans King) head for the exit, though she stops to tell you "Keep my words in mind; Even if you don't think you need them right now, someday you might..."
Apologies for the delay; Had to commute to town earlier than I had expected.>>30693522"I know" you reply as you wait for everyone else to leave, Tsuyako giving you a quick hug and hearing Fiona yell "See ya' around Kat!" before "La Illusion's" virtually deserted...You turn to King and ask "I'm not going to have to pick up the tab, aren't I?", half joking as King glares at you."Just leave please... And show up at around 10 tonight when I get off shift" she replies and you head out the front door without a moment's notice, wondering what to do with the rest of this crazy day you've had so far...>A. Call up Seth and see if you can "Secure a Location" so you can go over how your "Date" with Jean Gabriel's gonna go.>B. Hop on your bike and ride around the city for a bit, maybe going out to South Town National Park for a quick hike through the woods?>C. See if "Slick" Sukihiro's teaching Tai-Chi today and ride out to "Meadow's Park" to join him; You need to calm yourself down and find an inner peace of mind...>D. Something Else... ("Write-In" Vote)
>>30694614>>A. Call up Seth and see if you can "Secure a Location" so you can go over how your "Date" with Jean Gabriel's gonna go....tai chi tempting... but this ought to get done.
>>30694886Giong with this if there aren't any more votes in the next 15-20 Minutes...
>+20 Minutes pass>No other votesOK then.>>30694886>>30694886You head out of "La Illusion" and walk towards the corner, seeing your bike's still parked where Hatsune had left it, your keys sitting on the tail of the seat.You think about riding down to Meadow's Park or to the National Park, but there's something on your mind you want to take care of first... You spot a narrow-ish alleyway and calmly walk your bike down it, out of view as you flip out your cellphone and turn it on. After checking to see if there had been any messages since this morning (And finding that there weren't any), you call up a number you had memorized and anxiously wait for a reply."Who is this?" Seth asks, his voice sounding a bit harried."Katja H., Your Aussie connection..." you reply, then add "I'dunno if I ever got a codename, so...""I'm gonna call you "PITA" if you call me up and answer like that" Seth replies, then asks "Shit, WHY are even you callin' me up this early? We don't really need you 'till tomorrow.""I'dunno,Gabriel came in a day early and REALLY tried o pressure me into goin' out with him today..." you pause briefly, then explain "I just feel like going through how my gig with you-know-who's gonna go...""Easy; you pump him for information while sounding like you're not really interested and let us do our job" Seth quickly counters, then says "Damn it, I've got two rookies MIA and that suspect that you tipped us off on's the only real culprit; I don't have TIME to deal with your ass today!" You half-expect him to hang up on you, though he quietly admits "... It's just that the stress's gettin' to me today; Come in at around 14:30 tomorrow and we'll talk you through it OK?""Gotcha. I'll leave you to your work" you reply as you hang up on him, then wheel your bike back out and hop on, the time being 2:33 PM and the rest of the day, hell, the whole world feels like it's your oyster...

See if "Slick" Sukihiro's teaching Tai-Chi today and ride out to "Meadow's Park" to join him; You need to calm yourself down and find an inner peace of mind after going through all of the craziness and insanity today...>B.

Call up Robert Garcia and see if he can get you in touch with a real-estate agent; You need to start thinking about where you're gonna live after the Tournament Starts...>E. Ride down to "Wessel's Garage" and see if they got your parts in stock yet; They're silence isn't too comforting...>F. Head back to the "The Imperial" hotel and relax for the rest of the day...

>>30696665Seems like my lunch didn't take as long as expected...Still, I'm going to wait for another 10 Minutes or so to see if there are any more voters on the way.
>>30694614So Katja's chemistry with King is next-to-nonexistent. I WONDER WHY.
>>30697867That's why King asked her to come back after her shift's over... Also, lost track of time talking with an old friend Here's the update.>>30697911>>30697262Thinking of nothing better to do, you fire up the bike and head down to Meadow's Park, the wind in your hair as you quickly realise that you left your helmet in Andy Bogard's car... You decided to ride out anyaway, sticking to back roads and arriving at the park in little over an hour, though you notice that the usual crowd isn't there today. You shrug at that, then quietly walk up to the place that you had trained with "Slick" Sukihiro and start to hear the unmistakeable sounds of two people fighting. You rest up under a blooming Sakura Tree and watch a tall, kinda cool looking Black Guy covered in tatoos with a wild shock of Blonde hair fighting Ryo Sakazaki.Curious, you study Ryo's movements, sensing an unseen ferocity behind his attacks as he deftly trounces the other guy, not even using visible Ki attacks to counter and punish his opponent's boxing moves.You do a "Golf Clap" after you watch Ryo defeat him with a rather odd-looking Ryuuko Ranbuu, Ryo turning around after a few seconds and asking "Katja? What're you doing all the way out here?""I usually take a Tai-Chi class with some spindly-looking old guy... Calls himself "Slick"; Y'know where he might be?" you ask, worried slightly that something might've happened to him."Sorry... I can't say that I've heard of him" Ryo replies as the big guy slowly picks himself up and the two of you assume combat stances, though you catch yourself wonder why you did so..."I ain't done yet muthafuckah..." he mumbles, looking more like a lanky Basketball Player than a fighter and sounding half-asleep when you can sense that he had tried to sound intimidating with that remark.
>>30696665>>30698847"Your legs tell me otherwise, Dweebenheimer... And tricks like yours can't beat Kyokugen! If you fight, fight me fair and square" Ryo confidently replies as the other guy falls over and passes out, his legs spasming in his unconscious..."That was pretty good..." you admit, looking at him like a"To be fair, he hit strong but had no range; If I used my Ki I would've mauled him in about 35 Seconds tops" Ryo muses, then rotates his arms, making genuinely intimidating-sounding cracks and pops as you wonder if you should do something you always wanted to when you were going to the Kyokugen Dojo daily, but never got a real chance to do...>A. Challenge him to a fight; You're feeling pretty good right now and want to wash out the bitter taste of defeat from earlier in the day out of your mouth...>B. Ask him how his dad and sister are doing and how life in the Dojo, if only to buy a little time to see if you want to fight him.>C. Ask him if he wants to do combat drills with him to cool down after his fight; You want to get your head "Back into the Game" so-to speak and want a good benchmark for how strong and limber you are...>D. Say your goodbyes and check out South Town National Park before the light starts to fade away...>E. Tell Ryo that you'll see him around and ride back to "Wessel's Garage" and see if they got your parts in stock yet...>F. Head back to the "The Imperial" hotel and relax for the rest of the day, starting with a swim in the pool to cool your nerves a little... (Roll 3d100 for Speed, Dexterity & Strength) >G.

>>30699175I'll second that.
>>30699175>>30699281Having connection and Lap-Top issues; Update should be on the way...>MFW this shit goes down tonight.
Still battlin' connection problems and have to commute home... The QM Curse seems to be starting with me tonight.>>30699175>>30699281You think about actually stepping up and fighting him, but think better and ask "Well, I'd fight you right now, but I'm pretty sore from earlier... Wanna just do some cool-downs?"Ryo takes a look at you, that stare for sizing up a fighter coming from his dad as you tensely wait for his reply... And relax a little when he shrugs and says "OK. Can we head out of here before this chump wakes up?"You nod and smile a little as you walk with him back to your 'bike and ask "How's life at the Dojo?""Same old, same old I guess... The student body tailed off after you left though; Now it's just me, Dad, Yuri, Robert, Marco and his kid and that guy with the Boomerang" Ryo dutifully replies."The usual suspects eh?""Yeah... Yuri misses you a lot though." he quietly admits."I figured as much... Did they lock her phone out from callin' me or somethin'?""Takuma confiscated it..." Ryo tells you with an annoyed sigh, adding "AND basically grounded her until the tournament starts.""And to think that he wants meto be a "Mr. Karate" for girls... I think I'm gonna enjoy kickin' his arse in the tournament" you tell him,"You'll have to get through a couple of old friends of his though... And they're fairly crafty fighters for they're age" Ryo adds as you stop near your motorcycle and start to stretch, not quite matching Ryo's movements as he's much more advanced in his training and physical fitness than you are...Still, you get through your "Cool-Down" stretching routine with ease, Ryo letting out a cleansing breath before says "THanks... I really needed that.""No problem..." you reply, then stretch your neck out a little bit more and ask "You think you can sneak your sister out tonight at around 10?"
>>30702030"Why do you think King invited you to her little pow-wow at La Illusion otonight?" Ryo replies, then says "Well, I guess I'll be heading back home...""Yeah, no problems Mate" you reply, a sinking feeling overwhelming you before Ryo puts a gloved hand on your shoulder."Just so you know, I don't agree with my father's decisions... You're free to do whatever you want with your life as long as you put my art in a positive light" he tells you.You pause at his words and fight an urge to cry as Ryo calmly adds I'll see you around" before walking away...You take a seat on your bike and just... Think about what a monumental lift his words were to you, the sound of Ryo's motorcycle blaring off in the distance.>A. Ride back to "Wessel's Garage" and see if they got your parts in stock yet.>B.
