>>31010421OF COURSE! GOTTA SHOW SOME M*********ING RESPECT FOR MY FELLOW LATE-NIGHT QUESTERS! BY THE F***ING WAY, GOBBLE IS KILL!
>>31010453Stick to the steroids, the magic is mine.Gobble is kill
You face him head on. You can do this.He looks you up and down. You can see the gears turn in his head. His eyes dash all around. He thinks he can outsmart you.You really hope not. Your brain isn't coming up with anything complicated right now. You stare back at him, moving your fingers slowly. You take a breath.The lights flicker and you both burst into action. He zooms at you with incredible speed. You know you can't match him outright in how fast he can move, but you can predict how he'll move.He surprises you by turning around mid-air. He lands on your feet first, then he runs up your leg. You snatch at his bra-bundle, but he moves it out of the way just in time. He hits the ceiling then comes dashing back down again. You start falling backwards as you try to keep track of him.Sneasel gets cocky. Just as you're about to hit the ground, he tries going for your left pocket. He still keeps the bundle out of reach. As he's doing that though, you bring the Pokeball out and around with your right hand. You activate the beam and retrieve him.The jostling of your head when your butt hits the ground is terrible. You take a few seconds before getting up. The look on his face was worth it though.Vance and Jeanine come around to meet you.Jeanine has her arms crossed as she runs. "How did it go?"You hold up the Pokeball and toss Vance the keys. "That's all I got back. He even has my badges."Jeanine keeps her arms crossed and tries to shrink.Absently, you wonder how much stuff a Pokeman can have in their Pokeball. You'll have to ask Robin later.Speaking of, you see fiddling with a computer.>Bring Robin water, she probably needs some nursing>Run over, try to help with the computer stuff>Work on collecting the other Pokemon before people arrive>Something else
>>31010534>Bring Robin water, she probably needs some nursing
>>31010534>Work on collecting the other Pokemon before people arrive
>>31010534>Water for robin.Time to play nurse for the waifu.
>>31010534>Work on collecting the other Pokemon before people arriveI'll leave finding out what's up until tomorrow.Goodnight Gobble, thanks for the fun quest. It got a little too lewd for me, to be honest. But that's alright I since alcohol Maybe we can use it for character development later And goodnight to you too, Mr. Torgue.
>>31010587GOOD NIGHT! MEEDLYMOW!
>>31010534>Bring Robin water, she probably needs some nursingAnd she probably doesn't need us rushing over to her while dealing with finicky computers. Doesn't mean we can't support her by trying to help, but no need to panic; she's far from incapable.
>>31010534>Bring Robin water, she probably needs some nursingPokemon being out isn't really a problem
*ahem*Gobble is kill
>>31010914at least wait a half hour
You plug some change into a machine and get a bottle of water. Robin probably needs this more than you getting in the way.You, Vance, and Jeanine walk over to Robin. You unscrew the lid and hand her the bottle. She thanks you but blushes when Jeanine comes into her vision. You help her hold it up as she guzzles it down. You position yourself behind her and massage her temples. You can see her visibly relax a bit."How's it going?" Vance asks.Robin is concentrating too much to be overly self-conscious, but you can tell she's worried about how everything thinks of her. "I don't know. It looks like it just vanished.""What vanished? What was happening?"She stops pressing buttons and looks up. "I don't know. Whatever was messing with the computer system isn't in the system anymore. I think."Something catches your eye. Your Pokedex is on one of the computers. "How did this get here?"Nobody knows or remembers. Probably Sneasel or something. You check it out. It seems normal. You scan Zappy Dan. It just gives an accurate reading without any issues. That's odd, usually it's a sarcastic remark or something. You almost hope for it now.Vance goes to open up the main doors and let people in. When he comes back, he looks worried. "My parents are probably worried."That will probably be a really uncomfortable situation. Even an orphan like you can guess how they'll react.>The three of you will get breakfast. He should go alone>Let the others do what they want, you don't want to get involved>You'll go with him>Something else
>>31010984Ask Vance if he'd like us to go with him or if it'd be better to just get him breakfast
>>31011014THIS! WE HAVE TO BE THERE FOR OUR BROTHER!
>>31011030THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT MR. TORGUE! I'M SURE YOU ARE A MAN OF WEALTH AND TASTE!
>>31010984a-are you saying that Pokedex is giving accurate information now?THAT COMPUTER STOLE OUR ROTOM/POLYGON.
>>31010984isn't there some Pokemon that basically haunts computers? now that I think about it when our pokedex goes wibblly it sounds more like its messing with us than the kind of random static a computer error should result in....
>>31010984>You'll go with him
>>31010984>The three of you will get breakfast. He should go aloneTime to gang up on Jeanine and find out what happened.Also, that Rotom/Porygon etc better not be haunting the gym and ruining our investment. I hope it acts up and gives us an in-character reason to be concerned about it.
>>31011043There is. And I sure as he'll hope our plotarmour isn't strong enough to get us a super fucking rare pokemon. We already have it easy enough with what little training we do
>>31011014im gonna have to second this
>>31011014I will also support this
>>31011123We actually do quite a lot of training. We spend days at a time solely focusing on training our pokemon, it just seems like not that much because they're usually only one post.
>>31011174I'm going to turn in. Nighty night Gobble-sama, Torgue-dono.
You don't know what you're supposed to do in these situations. You decide to just ask Vance. "Should we come?"He rubs his eyes. "You probably don't want to be there."You look down as the sunlight grows more intense. "But what do you want us to be?""I can't really ask you to-"You're so not up for this. "Yes or no Vance."His hand squeezes your shoulder. "Yes. Thank you." You hear the smile in his voice, but you don't look up.It's pretty easy to collect your Pokemon. They're mostly sleeping or at least sleepy. The four of your go into Vance's parents house. It probably looks like you've all come back from a war or something. Hair all disheveled, bags under your eyes. Robin leans on you. You think back to your spotty memories of last night. You wouldn't mind signing on for a second tour.Giorgio greets you at the door "Look who finally came home."His mom yells. "Do you have any idea how worried we were? Especially after last night! What were you thinking?"The shouting! Why is there so much shouting? You hold your head and keep your eyes away from the light."What did you even do last night?" You try not to wince. It's not particularly harsh, but it feels like it from what's happening in your skull.>Say nothing>Make something up (write-in encouraged)>Tell them about the drinking>Tell them everything you remember>Something else
>>31011256Good night! Thanks for coming!
>>31011268"We celebrated. Maybe a little too hard."
>>31011256GOOD NIGHT! YOU'RE AWESOME!
>>31011302Probably the most accurate and evasive. As long as Jeanine isn't leaking fluid everywhere, we should be good.
>>31011302I like this suggestion
>>31011268>Something else>>31011302Along these lines. Avoid mentioning drunk shenanigans if possible
>>31011302this is pretty good.
"We celebrated. Maybe a little too hard."Giorgio laughs. "I bet." He peers down at everyone. There's both anger and amusement in his eyes. He looks you all over carefully. Jeanine keeps her arms crossed. Robin barely notices anything. Vance looks like his parents are bombs that might go off if he does the wrong thing.His mom hits Vance with a wooden spoon. "Are you at least using protection?" You'd laugh really, really hard under different circumstances."Mooom!" He's about to complain even more, but you hear a disgusting Urp sound come from his mouth. He runs to the bathroomHis mom chases after him. "Vance I'm serious, we need to talk about these things before you end up taking care of three kids."Jeanine shyly looks up. "Is Vance going to be grounded." You didn't even think about that. What if they forbid him from traveling with you?Giorgio smacks taps his spoon against his coffee cup, producing an unfairly loud, high pitched noise. The three of you flinch. "What do you think?" He's responding to Jeanine, but it's an open question. "Celebrated too hard." He repeats. He keeps tapping the coffee cup, and each time is like a nail getting pounded in your skull. >Beg him to let Vance keep traveling with you>Promise you'll never do anything like that again (let's face it, probably a lie)>Say nothing, you'll probably make it worse>Something else
>>31011302Yeah I vote for this. What's funny though is that once they ask us what we are celebrating we don't even have the badges to show. And since Sneasel has the badges and Jeanine's bra His dads gonna look so proud when Vance calls out Sneasel
>>31011587>Say nothing, you'll probably make it worse
>>31011587Tell them Vance isn't actually dating Janine yetAnd you're with Robin
>>31011587"The thing about us all being his girlfriends was a joke, you know."
>>31011587>Beg him to let Vance keep traveling with you
>>31011587Don't say anything. Lets listen to the talk. We've had to figure it all out ourself, it'd be interesting to hear how actual parents tell it
>>31011657do you think Robin has had the talk yet?
>>31011587We should be calm and collected about this (as best we can through a pounding hangover). Don't beg, don't make false promises, just explain the situation.>>31011627>>31011625These are good
>>31011587>Say nothingVance is a grown ass man.
>>31011713Isn't he not though? He's like our age, and we're 16.
>>31011738Old enough. He was already on a journey
>>31011713Nah, he just looks like one.
You say nothing. You just look up at his dad.Giorgio sips his coffee and sighs as looks at your face. "Vance isn't grounded. There's no punishment worse than what he's getting right now."You hear the distant sound of Vance throwing up while his mom lectures him on safe sex.You take the chance and give a light chuckle. "The thing about us all being his girlfriends was a joke, you know."Giorgio takes another sip. "Yup. I figured. His mom knows too."You're about to make a joke to Robin about her being lucky her dad isn't this cruel, but you figure it's probably a bad idea.You keep the conversation going. "Vance isn't actually dating Jeanine. Yet." Jeanine looks at you. "And I'm with Robin." You hold her hand."Now that I didn't know." He starts cooking something up. "How are you feeling?"Robin talks this time. "So you're not mad?""Believe it or not, I was young once too." He stirs in an assortment of seemingly random ingredients. "My gut tells me that you're good kids. Don't make the last two nights into a habit, and don't do anything you wouldn't want your own kids to do. Let me ask you something though. Why are you and my son traveling together. Really?">You're helping him train>You owe him for treating you>You're friends>Something else
>>31011944At first>You owe him for treating youbut then>You're friendsLet's leave out that our original intentions were nefarious. The second part isn't a lie, at least.
>>31011944>You're helping him train>You're friends
>>31011978this is pretty much the truth, so lets just go with this
>>31011978This is good. The first part isn't not the truth either, if the statement is phrased in a certain way.
"He treated me when I got hurt." You tell him the story of when you caught Destiny."You seem to get in a lot of trouble young lady." He's trying to scold you, but you can hear pride in his voice."Vance and I became friends. He's been great to me. I want to be a good friend to him too. That's part of why I gave him his Cranidos." You tell him that story too."You sound like your being a good friend already." He pours the concoction into small bowls and hands each of your one. "It's best to take it all down in one gulp."You look down at the foul smelling brew. Why not? You down it in a swift motion. It's terrible! You shudder involuntarily.Vance comes back. He's looking a lot better. His mom has stopped lecturing too."Hey, is everyone cool in here?"They cook you up a nice greasy breakfast. You can see why people make a big deal out of having a home. You can tell that his parents are still upset, but they're making their first priority to take care of him. And you too."So where are you kids going next?">Clairborough, where Vance's sister is. There should be lots to see on the way>Ampberg. There are mountain passes>Something else------- 1.Novum 2.Kindletown 3.Chloroville 4.Aquapolis 5.Braundalin 6.Ampberg 7.Clairborough
>>31012200>>Clairborough, where Vance's sister is. There should be lots to see on the wayPlot hooooo
>>31012200>Clairborough, where Vance's sister is. There should be lots to see on the wayI wanna meet Vance sister, who thus far seems to be vance but the exact opposite.
>>31012200>Clairborough, where Vance's sister is. There should be lots to see on the way
>>31012200>Ampberg"Probably Ampberg. The mountain passes should make for solid training."
>>31012200>Clairborough.Time for Vance to see his sister!
>>31012200What... What did we just drink?Did we just drink a liquid morning after pill? Because the guy was talking about safe sex and everything
>>31012340My guess is more like anti-hangover cure. Maybe even just coffee, depending on whether we've ever drunk coffee before.
>>31012340Hangover cure. They generally taste like shit. And it was vances mom that was lecturing him on safe sex
Whatever he made is really perking you up. You're guessing that his dad is where Vance learned to that treatment he used when you first met."Clairborough. We're going to Clairborough." You get up to stretch. Your muscles ache, but in a good way. Your headache is slowly fading.His mom clasps her hands together. "Wonderful! Would you mind taking a small package?"You don't see why not. "Sure. That's no problem.""I'll have it together soon. Just don't leave quiet yet." The mood has definitely shifted.You weren't planning on running off this second, but regardless, you have some time to kill.>Train a Pokemon (Specify)>Maybe you can find a trainer battle>Just rest up. You're still tired>Something else
>>31012365I guess that actually makes sense.>>31012372If hangover cures taste like shit why would people drink them? Do hangovers actually hurt people that bad?
>>31012388>Something else"Pssst. Jeanine. Jeaniiiiiiine...""What?""You get any?"
>>31012388>Just rest up. You're still tired
>>31012388Yes, let's bother Jeanine>>31012407
>>31012388we should probably get our stuff back from sneasel
>>31012388>bug Jeanine.>>31012390I take it you've never had one? Just imagine the worst migrane ever then multiply it a few times, add dry mouth, funky breath and sensitivity to everything. Stir until boiling. Suffer.
>>31012388>>Train a Pokemon (Specify)>>Something elseget out dan and sneasel like >>31012459 suggested. offer to have the sneasel give its loot over voluntarily or get thunder waved and have it taken. his choice.
>>31012388>Train a PokemonDevon or Zappy Dan, they're probably gonna be our go to pokemon for the Clairborough gym, so we should try and get them in good shape. Either Dan's special defense or Devon's attack/special attackWe could work on Vlad too, in anticipation of a medicham at the gym, since the leader is Vance's sister, after all.
>>31012527I have actually had one before but it was kinda just annoying and forgettable compared to a migraine.
>>31012567Woud've been a mild hangover then. Or barely even that.Real, hardcore hangovers are utter nightmares.
>>31012567They can vary pretty wildly. The person/drink/hydration all play a huge part
>>31012594I'm 31 and I got drunk... I mean, for-real-not-just-being-a-buzzed-pussy drunk... for the first time a couple weeks ago. Ended up looking for a cup to get a glass of water (was at a friends friends apartment) and I ended up waking up the following morning realized I'd been swilling water out of her blender.
>>31012586>>31012594Oh. Okay. If hydration is a factor then maybe thats why? I kinda have to drink a lot of water for reasons I can't actually remember
>>31012624Hydration affects it hugely, so yeah, that probably helped.
You're feeling a bit negligent of your training, but given the circumstances you can forgive yourself.You have other things you want to settle though."Jeanine, want to help me with Sneasel?"Jeanine becomes more aware of what she's wearing again. She folds her arms in front of herself and nods. "Good idea."You both go into the bathroom and open the standup shower. You cram yourselves in and let Sneasel out. You don't give him a second. As soon as he's out, you both grab him and get the remaining items off of him. Jeanine looks just as relieved to have her stuff back as you are to get your badges.You hold them tightly. It's your proof that you're a trainer. That you've made progress to your goal. You've beaten three experienced gym leaders. You're a real, legitimate trainer.You're actually starting to believe that."So, how was your night with Vance?"You can't see her face she she's turning around to put her bra on. "Can you help me out?"She's ignoring the question.>Press her. She's not dodging this>Leave it alone. Training time>You'll tell her about Robin if she tells you about Vance>Something else>>31012624Hydration is THE factor, in my limited bartending experience.A lot of the worst hangovers are more dehydration combined with having drank a massive amount of sugary drinks for mix.[I know it's a very short part 2, but I'm fading. Going to call this the last vote before I fall asleep on the keyboard]
>>31012624Drink lots of water and don't drink cheap vodka. Two easy ways to avoid hangovers.
>>31012527Man, I remember on boxing day I had a hangover that would have given Zeus pause for thoughtIt felt like somebody had spent the entire night bashing my skull in with a claw hammer made of fireworks and jet engines. I was genuinely almost knocked unconscious by somebody shouting at me.
>>31012686>You'll tell her about Robin if she tells you about VanceAh, yes. An exchange of information. Most excellent.
>>31012686>Press her. She's not dodging thisThe beansSpill them
>>31012686>>You'll tell her about Robin if she tells you about Vanceyou rub my back, and...well, you get the ideaalso, g'night gobble. this is about the point i gotta head out too
>>31012686>You'll tell her about Robin if she tells you about Vance
>>31012609It's a glass right? Just a rather large one.
>>31012686"If you don't tell me, I'm sure Vance will."Thanks for running, as always!
>>31012686THE TORGUEMEISTER HAS NEVER BEEN F***ING DRUNK, EXCEPT FOR THAT ONE TIME I DRANK A WHOLE BARREL OF GASOLINE AND SOME C*******ER DARED ME TO SLAP SKAGZILLA ON THE B***S! IT WAS AWESOME!
I've drunk to the point of repeated vomiting more than a few times and I've never really had a noticeable hangover. Always drink water, piss a lot, try to sleep as close to your normal number of hours as possible.
Alright! Seems like a good consensus and some great dialogue ideas. Probably thread tomorrow. Sorry. I'm preparing for a multi-day job assessment. I'll try to have sometime Tuesday, but I can't promise that either. If I get the job though, there will be many more threads.You all rock. I know this was a bit of a change of pace and we've been lacking actual Pokemon stuff. We'll be back to the Pokemon part of Pokemon again next time (Unless votes go way crazy).I hope nobody was too scared off from the lewd.
>>31012857WHAT THE F**K IS A LEWD? NEVERMIND! GOOD NIGHT! YOU'RE AWESOME!
>>31012857Nope the lewd was good and get some sleep you made some mistake in your post. I think you meant there won't be a thread tomorrow.
>>31012857Thanks for running Gobble
>>31012857Thanks for running, Gobble
>>31012892Thanks!Has anyone heard from that anon that was reading posts? I hope he's alright.
>>31012857I thought the lewd was rather well done. Also are you planning to do any sort of continuation if the ftb in a pastebin? If so will you just be posting the link in the next thread?
>>31012857It wasn't too bad. You were skirting the line between 'Acceptable to post in thread' and 'Pastebin time', but you did good.Honestly, you have your shit together pretty well. You manage to quash most shitstorms by just being so chill that it gives me frostbite. And that's great. Keep it up man.
>>31012912Whoops. Yes, you got it.>>31012920Holy shit I am making mistakes.The drunk anon that read posts out loud and posted it on vocaroo. >>31012926That's the plan. I'm hoping to have to done by next thread. I don't think it will go as well without player input every 2000 characters or so, but I'll do my best.
>>31012920He did say he was drunk at the time, so he's probably gone back to lurking.One day, Drunk Voice Actor Anon will return to us
>>31012938I really appreciate that.I felt the same way (in that I was really bordering on being too inappropriate). I got a bit more carried away with it than intended. Glad it didn't turn into a major mess.Just having write-ins was a nice change of pace too. I love the awesome suggestions.I also want to say how impressed I was with the last gym battle. There was a lot of smart ideas getting posts in that one.
>>31012947Just remember the 4 Ns. Neck nipples navel naughties. Works well enough. Plus its better to start from the top down.
