There we are. Where were we, in the middle of some mindbreak and humiliation?
I wanted to make the point that we need to force Clair into our emotions more. In terms of shitty memories she can meet even with us, but we need to dump her in the wellspring of lonliness and such.She went through a lot of shit but she never would have been along, she would have her parents and Vance and probably professionals or something to help her along. We had nobody.
Best Psychic types, coming through!Also shouldn't there be laws for Psychics psycing around with people witchout their permission?
Pokemon time mother fuckers
This better end in brain sex
Fuck, I'll miss this very important session. Ah well.
>>31830439>Clair>Gym LeaderIf we beat her and she refuses to give us a badge until we get a Psychic Fang from Psychic Den what do?
>>31830558Nah, we just keep making her envision banging her brother.
You thought you’d have more nostalgia for this place. In truth, it feels like it could trap you at any moment. All the memories you’re ashamed up might turn into tentacles and keep you here. It smells like shame and disappointment. Judging by the look on Clair’s face, she smells the same thing.“So you’ve gotten some beatings and self-worth issues. That’s nothing new.” Her monotone has broken into the natural voice of a teenaged girl. “You’re not alone.” You think that was supposed to come off as unimpressed, but it sounded full of pity.You don’t want her stupid pity. You want someone to understand how worthless you feel and tell you everything is alright.What? No, that’s not it. Where did that thought even come from? You came here to beat her at her own mind games. Drown her in the crap that is your head. You gesture to your closet of shame.“What’s in it?” She approaches slowly.“Open it and find out.”She opens the door and is immediately thrown against the room. An onslaught of memories come flooding out. There are small ones like times you told minor lies, took things of no real value from people. Larger ones follow. Stealing from the fundraiser collection, tripping that Jessica girl in the mud even though she hadn’t done anything to you, letting Mr. Batson cop a feel when you were caught trying to take his wallet. Things that make you feel dirty.(continued)
>>31830571What if she gives up and bangs her brother?
>>31830558mind fuck her some more
>>31830598Then we have won the greater battle.
>>31830592You’re expecting more rapid-fire shame and guilt to come blasting out of the closet. Instead, a slow, barely visible fog rolls in. You know what it is. It’s not one particular memory, but a fine mist made of every night you stayed up wondering what was wrong with you. From your impulses to sometimes lie or steal just because it gave you a sense of power, to how you were made fun of when it came out that you were bisexual, to the fact that deep down, you knew every moment alone was your own fault.You told yourself you were alone because you were a victim of circumstance, but that was a lie. Instead of facing the truth, you’d tell yourself you were alone by choice. Nobody loved you because you didn’t need anybody else. That’s a lie too. The truth is, you’re just a terrible person. Nobody can ever love you.Except Robin. She loves you. You’re surrounded by a montage of all the friendly smiles, the way she holds your hand, the kisses and hugs. Robin said she loved you. She even knows a lot about you and she said that. Then why do you feel so much doubt and worry?Clair is closing the closet door. She looks terrible, like she was in a shipwreck that called her mean names. She’s starting off, unguarded, seemingly unaware of you standing there.Somehow, you know that she’s been in the heads of Jeanine, Robin, and Vance at least a little bit already today. Their thoughts are in her pockets.Clair barely mutters something. "Does Robin really love me? Can anybody?">Pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets.>Pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets.>Pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets.>Slap some sense into Clair>Something else
>>31830696>Stay still and let her stew in her stupor.
>>31830696I think I'll have to go with Pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets.
>>31830696Gee, I wonder if we should pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets?Naw, just slap her.
>>31830696>Slap some sense into Clair
>>31830696>Pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets.
>>31830474I love these edits
>>31830696>Slap some sense into ClairMind-reading is wrong.Actually, I figure Kat's terrified of seeing Robin's thoughts, juuuuust in case they're everything she fears.
>>31830696>>31830722This. Also go look at happy memories while Clair recovers.
>>31830774Some are barley edits thoughLet her stew in it, go find some sexy robin memories
>>31830722This, though I hope there's no side effects.
>>31830777Oh they're not gonna come out to be happy.
>>31830696>Slap some sense into Clair>Slap the bitch hardI still have no idea why the fuck did we decide to give her a tour in our mind.
>>31830722I support this.>>31830826Because the bitch thought she was hot shit and could handle it. Turns out she was just plain shit.
>>31830826We wanted to reverse mindrape her with our dark thoughts.
>>31830696>slap the shit out of Clair
>>31830696>Slap her. Hard.>Try to make her feel guilty for snooping in people heads.
>>31830696"Now, you said you'd show me yours? Unless you'd rather see more..."
>>31830826Kat is petty and stubborn as fuck.
>>31830696>Pick Jeanine's thoughts from Clair's pockets.Or Vance's!
>>31830696>Slap the shit out of Clair>grab the thoughts of everyone you can out of her pocket>then crush them under our foot"Their thoughts belong in their heads, not in yours."
>>31830948>>31830989Lets not fuck around with shit we don't understand.
>>31830696>>Slap some sense into ClairDoes Kat have to Machoke a bitch?
>>31830948This is a bad idea.
>>31830696>Pick Robin's thoughts from Clair's pockets.Let's trust Robin, but let's not trust Robin. Know what I'm sayin?
>>31830696>Just stand back and watch the meltdown
>>31830696>Slap some sense into Clairdon't pick thoughts. don't be like clair
>>31830696>Slap some sense into ClairTHIS IS THE PERFECT MOMENT FOR THE BANE SPEECHadoptedthedarkness.jpg
>>31831190"I'mma break yo back bitch!"
>>31831190Oh, yeah.YOU MERELY ADOPTED THE SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES. I WAS BORN INTO THEM.
Clair remains in her stupor. You look around and realize the fog of self-hate barely registers to you. You see it, but you're numb to it. It's an old friend. Odd as it is, it's almost comforting to have it back. It's slipped away since you started your journey. Clair looks paralyzed from it. You don't try to wake her. Why should you? Let her stew in the lifetime's worth of self-hate that makes up the background radiation of your life.You trust Robin, but you can't pass this up. You just want a peak. You hear faint whispering from the pocket as your hand reaches closer. Quickly, operating on instinct, you take out an orb of light from her pocket. You examine it closely. it whispers to you. Surface thoughts. Small things. Robin was thinking about the match for the most part. There's a few other things, nothing big. Wait, what's this? You peer closer...it's...a secret? A secret she's keeping from you!You drop the orb and it smashes on the ground. The thought slips from your mind. You take out the orbs from her other pockets. One belongs to Vance, the other to Jeanine. You smash them too. Why are you so angry?"Hey! Clair! Wake up!"She doesn't react. You slap her and she snaps out of it."What...What did you do?" She looks down at the smashed orbs. She wipes a tear from her eye. She's trying to sound mad but has no energy."Their thoughts belong in their heads, not in yours!" You justify your actions. You really do feel that way, but you also feel a sense of anger and betrayal you can't remember the reason for.She looks down on them. "You shouldn't mess with things you don't understand here." Her voice is distant and sad.>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.>You still want to show her something that will make her think twice about snooping in your head (write-in)>You need to think of something happy. Anything (Write-in)>Something else
>>31831352>>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.so make me understand!
>>31831352>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.Ah, yes... yes! Let the doubt and fear flow through you, Kat! Let little Robin's secret betrayal gnaw at your mind! Mwahaha!
>>31831352>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.Let us break down her towers and burn her tapestries. Let us waltz among her corridors and laugh at her paltry attempts to show us how hard her life has been.
>>31831352>>You need to think of something happy. Anything (Write-in)Think about how we played a song for Devon and made our very first Pokefriend.
>>31831352>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.Yep, we either just gave all our friends brain damage or fucked up our friendships with them. How predictable.
>>31831352>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.
>>31831455indeed. We will win this mental mind game and then we will beat her when she is but a shell in a pokemon battle.
>>31831454nah, when we have alone time we say we saw that she's keeping a secret, but its ok-she'll tell us when she's ready
>>31831482Probably just gave them a headache.
>>31831495Yes, because the girl with the lifetime of trust issues is going to be rational.
>>31831527Or yknow, removed the memory from them entirely.Why did we do that, anyway?
>>31831482I hope not. There were only like 2 votes for taking things and 1 for breaking them, and I hope Gobble wouldn't expect a unanimous decision not to be an idiot if it'd fuck us that bad
>>31831482Considering that only two people voted for it and promptly got told it was stupid. I doubt it's going to be much of an issue.
>>31831559see >>31831569 and>>31831575
>>31831559Because we did.I doubt it took the memory, just a copy.
>>31831352>Whatever! We're going to her mind now.>You need to think of something happy. Anything (Write-in)I believe we should show Clair that we are not only defined by our miseries, but the good memories as well. Like the times we got to know Vance, Robin, and Jeanine, our first night with Robin, the memories of catching all our pokemon, and our shining moments together. Also, lets see what makes Clair tick.
>>31831352You wanted this Clair! You could have stopped at any time! You didn't have to come here! But now that you're here, I'm going to leave you with something you'll never forget.>You still want to show her something that will make her think twice about snooping in your head (write-in)think of the most Malicious thing we have ever done, like stealing from a poor person, or beating up some kid when we were younger. Psychic is weak to Dark because Dark is Evil, and they can't stand to read all of the Evil thoughts in their heads.
>>31831569Looks like 3 votes for taking, 2 for breaking, 2 specifically against breaking and 10 for just slapping.
>>31831616ouch, watch the edge there kiddo
>>31831616But dark isn't evil though. It's just underhanded.
>>31831616I think we've pushed her far enough already, friend. No need to make her go catatonic.
>>31831743Well, in Japan, the "Dark" types are called "Evil" types.
>>31831763Evil =/= Edge
"So make me understand." You begin leading her out."I can't. You don't have the gift." Clair's hand comes to where you slapped her before. It's like she's just noticing it now. "Maybe I can try." It seems the slap helped bring her mostly back. She still looks like crap though.You stop at the door. Robin kept a secret from you. That's right. That's why you felt so mad. Why can't you remember what it was? You glance back at the shattered orbs. "Did I hurt my friends doing that?""No. Those were just copies of memories. You can hurt people here if you don't know what you're doing though. You should be careful." Her voice is still distant. Her eyes unfocused.You look over the room one more time. Your eyes settle on the toy versions of your Pokemon on the table. They're playing around with each other now. At least they wouldn't be keeping secrets from you. You remember the time you caught Devon. The tune plays in your head as you close the door and leave.(continued)
You arrive at the castle almost instantly. Or did it take days of walking? Time doesn’t seem to matter here.There’s a large moat.You see an army of knights of various sizes outside the moat. They’re looking for a way in. Wait, those are all Vance! Some of them are wearing helmets, but on the ones where you can see their faces, they’re definitely all Vance at different ages. The oldest one stands at the front. He looks like he’s in charge.There’s a spear sticking out of him that he doesn’t seem to care about. In fact, there are spears sticking out of a lot of the older Vance-knights. It looks the youngest one to have a spear in him is about thirteen.“She did this to me. I stopped hanging around with her and started hanging around girls. She wanted me to mess up asking a girl out. She stuck a spear in my confidence. She says she meant to just make me screw up that one time, but the truth is she couldn’t stand to have me get friends when nobody liked her. She played with parts of the mind she had no idea how to handle and stripped me of my self-worth.”The last time you had a good conversation with Vance, he revealed that he was actually aware of how often women hit on him, and he just pretended not to notice to avoid the issue. He didn’t even ask Jeanine out when he knew she’d say yes. Did Clair do something to him?Clair's face is blank. She still doesn't seem like she's all there. She just follows behind you without comment.>You'll help the Vance army get inside the castle>Bypass him and go to the gates. You'll go in without them>Ask him a question (write-in)>Something else
>>31832171>Ask him a question (write-in)So you never had a problem with altering people permanently? Is this what you meant by not knowing what you're doing?
>>31832171>You'll help the Vance army get inside the castle"looks like you can hurt people if you DO know what you're looking about too"
>>31832171>Something elseAsk her a question. She's so out of it we might even get a half decent answer."I'm gonna guess the reason there's stuff like this outside is that you can't turn it off, can you?
>>31832201Sorry, that should be directed at Clair.
>>31832171>Something elseStart removing spears from the Vances.
>>31832171>Bypass him and go to the gates. You'll go in without them
>>31832171>>Bypass him and go to the gates. You'll go in without themWe don't want to break Clair yet, let her explain what is happening with the Vance army.
>>31832252And turn Vance into a rage monster? No thanks.
>>31832252>>31832280I think this might do something bad. It is best to not screw around with more permanent things.
>>31832171Looks like she fucked up a lot as a kid, and shut herself off emotionally to stop it from happening again.It'd also explain her reaction to us telling her we had it worse - Kids will always argue to one up each other.
>>31832171>>31832252>>31832282>>31832281Ask what happens when the spears are taken out. I get that she's a bitch that doesn't get personal space, but she obviously didn't meant to do this and doesn't know how to fix it. Just taking them out could be more harmful than helpful.
>>31832252>>31832280Nope.Fuck off with the damaging things in minds already, It's a capital B bad idea.
>>31832330I dunno, this was a couple years ago, and she's the older sister. I think the emotional shutoff is just how she stays in control in mental fights, and is still a manipulative bitch, even compared to us
>>31832350This is in Claire's mind. You want her to keep thinking of Vance as a personal punching bag for her frustrations?
>>31832171>>Bypass him and go to the gates. You'll go in without them>>31832313Agreed seriously people please don't touch anything without asking.
>>31832365You want to put her in a mental ward?
>>31832375kind of, actually. But Kat wouldn't want to do that to her friend's sister
>>31832391Nah, we just need to stick our fist in her face if she's still uppity after all this.
>>31832365She is keeping images of Vance as sources of constant guilt. We really cannot afford to play guessing games in people's minds. There is a very real chance of hurting her and almost no chance of helping.
>>31832437Very real chance of hurting her and no real chance of helping"When Dark types have good intentions."
>>31832544We want to teach her a lesson, not turn her into a brainless, drooling vegetable.
"So you never had a problem with altering people permanently? Is this what you meant by not knowing what you're doing?"She finally looks up at you. "Yes."You reach to one of the spears. "Can I take it out?""It won't fix anything. These are just phantoms. Vance is that way." She points to a building that looks like his family's gym in the distance. You look in the distance in other directions. Robin's dad's gym is far away. Jeanine's building is in viewing distance too.You look over the army of Vance. "I'm going to guess the reason there's stuff like this outside is that you can't turn it off, can you?""I can. I don't want to get rid of them."You pull a spear out of the oldest Vance. You just can't stand the sight of one of your friends being impaled like this. It comes out easily enough, but the hole is still there. He doesn't seem to notice.You bypass them and go to the gates, spear in hand. Judy is there with a clipboard. "State the reason for your visit""She won't stop you regardless of what you say." Clair informs you. "She just has paperwork she needs to file. She's a bureaucrat. Guarding these gates isn't her job. She doesn't care enough to keep anything dangerous out.""State the reason for your visit," Judy repeats.You don't see any reason to lie.>You want to understand Clair better>Petty competition and revenge>Ask Judy a question (write-in)>Something else
>>31832695>>Something else"Reasons."Then walk past.
>>31832695>Something elseI want to see the type of person who screws with peoples' heads so freely and carelessly.
>>31832695>You want to understand Clair betterknow thy enemy
>>31832695>Petty competition and revenge
>>31832695>You want to understand Clair betterIf you don't let people in, you're never going to understand them. Pretending like mind-reading lets you know everything about people is a fast track to disappointment.
>>31832695>Something else"Bitches an money."
>>31832695>You want to understand Clair better>Ask Clair if she thinks you are dangerous
>>31832695>Ask Judy a question (write-in)"What do you care about the most?"
>>31832695>You want to understand Clair betterlet's throw a curve to Clair's assumptions
>>31832779>Grab her by the throat and slam her against the wall
>>31832695>>You want to understand Clair betterTIME TO ENTER THE SHADOW REALM
>>31832695>You want to understand Clair better>"So you never had a problem with altering people permanently? Is this what you meant by not knowing what you're doing?">She finally looks up at you. "Yes."I wonder how much she ever actually did in his mind and how much of this is his suspicion hurting her. I could imagine one incident in childhood making him fear her and her listening to that fear the rest of her life.
>>31832695>>You want to understand Clair betterLet it begin.
>>31832695>"Theft, Assault, Underage Drinking, Underage Sex, Blackmail, Fraud, emotional therapy and helping fix my best friend's little sister."

"I want to know Clair better." Judy just scribbles it down, but Clair looks genuinely surprised. Then suspicious."Why?" Judy asks.You have a lot of things you can say to that. Jokes about being a reckless badass teen come to mind. You don't want to spend all day explaining it to her. "Reasons." You walk around her. The castle itself is cold. You notice that Clair is starting to look odd. Her face is warped. The purple cord in the back of her head head throbs as you go deeper inside.You look on the pale, sickly girl. She's slowly changing into something other than a person. "Do you think I'm dangerous?""Not to me. I don't like how much the others are willing to follow you." Clair keeps close. "I don't like how much Vance trusts you." She sounds nervous. "Seen enough yet? Can we go?"No way. You look at a map on the wall.>Go to the stables. Her Pokemon are there>Servants quarters sounds interesting>Follow the cord to it's source. End this>Something else
>>31833193>>Servants quarters sounds interesting
>>31833193>Go to the stables. Her Pokemon are thereYou can learn a lot by how a person's pokemon are treated.Also team preview.

>>31833193>>Servants quarters sounds interestingThis sounds like the best place to learn more about what she's like.

>>31833330I suspect that people don't care so long as it's not Vance.
>>31833375Why not both?
>>31833193"Sometimes I worry about how much they trust me too."
You head to the servants quarters. You'll head to the stables afterwards."Clair!" Vance and Clair's parents come to greet the two of you. "You brought a friend!""A friend!" Her dad repeats. He scurries to bring some snacks on a tray. "We're so proud of you! Always so proud!"You can hear their thoughts. They seem happy, but also worried. You listen a little harder. They're worried because they think there's a small chance Clair did something to you to make her your friend."I only did that once and it was an accident!" Clair yells suddenly. She must have heard the same thing. "Once! You don't have to be worried all the time! I'm already better than the psychic teachers you sent me to. Nothing like that will happen again." You see a few more people appear. You don't recognize them, but assume they're her teachers. They walk around cleaning up the room.Her parents don't seem to hear her protesting. Her mom grabs fusses over her. "Oh dear. You seem upset. Did you want to try the pills again?"Clair turns away. "No! Stop trying to fix me! Stop trying to help me! Haven't I shown you I can handle myself?" Clair turns uglier. She looks like a warped caricature of herself. The sound of the Vance army outside becomes audible again. She crosses her arms. "If you're so proud of me, why do you always think I need your help?"Her dad looks at you. You know it's not really him. It's just Clair's vision of him. He looks bigger than you remember. More imposing and authorative, but also more jovial. He interupts your thoughts. "Can I get you anything?>Comforting cocoa. It's happy and full of good times>Eat your vegetables. They're bitter>Try one of the pills her mother has.>Nothing, thanks>Something else
>>31833801>>Try one of the pills her mother has.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjMcOcJqhcE

>>31833801>>Nothing, thanksHa you suck at this for a psychic.
>>31833801>Comforting cocoa. It's happy and full of good timesChrist, everyone in this world is messed up.Well, Junior and the Prof both seem relatively stable, but outside of them everyone seems to be two seconds away from snapping.
>>31833906What about eddy or whatever his name is.
>>31833911>>31833940>This water tastes funny>It's metaphorical water>This water is dry
>>31833801>Comforting cocoa. It's happy and full of good timesI wish Vance could see this. Always envious of how much his parents favored her and all they were really doing was trying to avoid the cornfield.
>>31833906I want to learn the Prof's tragic backstory. I want to learn it so bad.>cocoa
>>31833966>I wish Vance could see this.He probably will get to. He's challenging her too, they can have a sibling bonding time in each other's brains.
>>31833801Man, Kat, despite not having parents, is pretty much in a perfect position to relate how Clair's parents feel to her - Kat's as proud of (and worried about) her pokémon as she would be a parent with kids.
>>31833995>CLAIR WHY IS THERE AN ARMY OF ME STABBED WITH SPEARS
>>31833801>Comforting cocoa. It's happy and full of good times
>>31834005"It's a metaphor for how much I want your dick?"
>>31833995I get the feeling she doesn't do this with everybody.
>>31833995I get the feeling that after this Clair's going to keep her sticky fingers out of people's brains for a while.
>>31834005>VANCE WHY CAN I SEE A GIANT STATUE OF ME FROM MY BRAIN>oh I know why, fuck me I'm a monster
>>31834044Most people don't exclusively show her terrible things. Even in a psychic fight we're trying to status effect her.
>>31834098Kat is the Queen of Status Effects.That said, status effecting her to fix her seems to be an undertone here.After all, Medicine is just controlled poison, and Kat's a Dark/Poison type.
>>31834098Kat really is the worst person to fight
>>31833801>>Comforting cocoa. It's happy and full of good times
>>31834146Some people begin a fight with a punch. Other people announce hostilities with artillery fire.Kat opens with locusts and smallpox.

"Just water please."He instantly produces a glass and hands it to you. It's clear, honest. Water has no particular meaning to either of you. You do notice that the act of drinking it is refreshing. It's not the water that refreshes you, but it feels like taking a break from all this metaphysical nonsense gives your mind a rest. You finish the water."Cocoa sounds nice too."He instantly produces a warm cup. You take a sip and instantly see Clair's memories of her childhood. Countless happy breakfasts at the table. Reading books beyond your age level and having praise heaped on you. Playing with Vance and even other kids, at least as a smaller kid. Genuinely feeling the pride and love from your parents and even Vance. Slowly, it wears off. You're left feeling empty and sad when it fades. It was a sip of childhood.You put down the cup before the temptation to guzzle it all becomes too great."Clair, come on, let's go to the stable." You lead her away.The Pokemon you know is Solrock greets you and Clair. There's a Gardevoir. It hugs Clair and positions itself between you and her.Clair gently pushes her aside. "It's alright. She's with me."A timid Inkay comes out and approaches. It reminds you of Trunks. You also see a playful Wobbuffet, a Drowzee that looks at you creepily, and Alakazam that sits there meditating.When she approaches, a thin cord appears and connects them all. Despite Clair's increasingly grotesque face, she seems at peace here.>Try to learn the moves and abilities of her Pokemon>Relax here with her for a bit.>Try to connect your own head to the cord they're all sharing>Something else
>>31834570>Something elseAsk what order she met them in.
>>31834570>>Relax here with her for a bit.Just because she's a cheating cheater is no reason to do it to her.
>>31834570>Try to connect your own head to the cord they're all sharing
>>31834570>>Relax here with her for a bit.and >>31834595
>>31834595This sounds good
>>31834570>>Relax here with her for a bit.Her pokémon seem to be treated well.Kat approves.
>>31834570>Relax here with her for a bit.>Try to connect your own head to the cord they're all sharingAsk her first about the what the connection is and if its a private thing.
How the fuck does a wobbuffet get into someones brain?It only learns the four moves
>>31834570>Relax here with her for a bit
>>31834708She probably identifies it, given her childhood.Counter, Mirror coat - internalizing and shutting out the concern percieved doubt
>>31834708The same way an army of Vance's does. Its not the real wobbuffet. Or if it is real the same way we did, through Clair.
>>31834806Identifies *with* itfuckballsdamnit
>>31835034...well played, anon.
Slowly, you approach the cords. You look to Clair for approval first just in case. She gives you an inviting look, and you press forward.You're an outsider here. You don't sense hostility, just a lack of connection. They seem to like it here. There's an open honesty. It's like they're having a pleasant conversation and you're the quiet one.Finally, you ask something. "What order did you meet?" You have to say the words out loud.Clair's grotesque look has faded. She seems at peace. "Alakazam when he was an Abra. He was a better teacher than any humans I met. Then Gardevoir, Solrock, Inkay and Wobbeffet at the same time, and finally Drowzee. There are others, but they're not here right now." She seems tired. "I can't give all of my attention to them at once, even if it's in my head."You can't find fault in that. You relax here for awhile before moving on. It's nice, but eventually the sounds of the Vance army outside grow loud again, and Clair begins to take on her grotesque look.The main hallway is long and wide. Torches light the way, but somehow it's darker and colder the deeper you go in.Clair is floating now. She doesn't seem to want to go in this direction, but does anyways. "Why didn't you try to find out about their moves and abilities?">You don't need to do that to beat her.>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with them>You don't know>Something else
>>31835107>You don't need to do that to beat her.they use psychic attacks, big whoop!
>>31835107>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with them
>>31835107>>You don't need to do that to beat her."Because anyone who needs to do that to win isn't worth much as a trainer."
>>31835129Wynaut, pronounced Why not. the baby form of Wobbuffet.
>>31835107>Something elseI want to win because I'm good enough, not because I cheated.
>>31835107>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with themI wanted to know how they felt about you, besides just knowing their moves wouldn't have helped anyway.
>>31835107>>You don't need to do that to beat her.Because we aren't a scrubnoob who needs psychic powers to win.
>>31835169I assure you, I didn't misspell my post. Nor did I miss the joke. I was doing the anime thing.
>>31835163>>31835189Lets not kick her when she is at her most vulnerable and really, really down.
>>31835107>You don't need to do that to beat her.>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with themthese both seem good.
>>31835107>You don't need to do that to beat her.>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with them
>>31835107>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with themdont kick the poor psychic puppy. she just needs a friend
>>31835107>>It doesn't matter. You just wanted to know her relationship with themIt makes us feel good to see people appreciate their pokemon.
>>31835196Hey this was her idea.
>>31835107>You don't need to do that to beat her.
>>31835196That's exactly when we should kick her.She wanted to take this to mental warfare.She did it because she thought we'd be an easy target. That we were defenseless against her. That here, in this, she was unassailable. That she could run roughshod over us as she has countless others.Hubris. Arrogance. Pride.We must break her. Only then will she learn.
>>31835232We aren't trying to recruit the gym leader, are we? I wasn't considering this an option until I remembered how many Ash had following him.
>>31835335Yeah, no. Kat's brain was all bad side. Her brain is Kat's good side.
>>31835339I don't think we should antagonize her. This is her brain after all, god knows what she could do if we pissed her off
>>31835384Pretty sure she was just being a bitch.
>>31835241This is more true for Kat than vengance.Sure, the inverse leads to violence, but she's the one that wanted in our head.
>>31835243>>31835335Yeah she crossed a few lines but, in light of>You look on the pale, sickly girl. She's slowly changing into something other than a person. "Do you think I'm dangerous?">"Not to me. I don't like how much the others are willing to follow you." Clair keeps close. "I don't like how much Vance trusts you." She sounds nervous. "Seen enough yet? Can we go?"I think she has an understandable if not forgivable motive. This trip has highlighted a lot of barriers her powers have erected around her in her life the biggest of which being between her and Vance. I don't think she was trying to start something as much as get perspective on her brother that she no longer can get directly. She never turned anything against us really and has been for the most part respectful the entire time. This was never about us it was about Vance
>>31835410She probably wouldn't be able to do anything we couldn't handle. We're no stranger to mental horrors. That's why we are immune to her as a dark type in the first place.I still agree that we don't need to go any farther, we've basically done what we meant to do.
"I wanted to know how they felt about you. Besides, just knowing their moves wouldn't have helped anyway." This hallway goes on forever.She floats a little higher. The throbbing from her cord grows larger. "It could give you the edge you need to win your badge.""I want to win because I'm good enough, not because I cheated. Anyone who needs to do that to win isn't worth much as a trainer.""I'm not a trainer Kat. I'm a gym leader. My job isn't to beat you, it's to test you." Her voice sounds like it's coming from many mouths.You arrive at the end of the hallway. There are large steel doors here.Clair looks like a monster now. She simply goes through the door like it isn't there. "Are you sure you want to come in here?" The words echo through the hallway. "You won't like what you see.">Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so gross>Look for somewhere else in the castle. This is her mind after all (write-in for what what part of her mind you'd like to explore)>You're done here. Time to leave>Something else
>>31835560>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so gross"You've seen my dirty laundry, now its time to air out some of yours."
>>31835560>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so grossYou saw the worst of me and buckled, let's see how well I do now.
>>31835560"Heh. So what else is new.">>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so gross
>>31835560>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so grossTime to see some shit
>>31835560>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so gross

>>31835560>>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so gross"if its worse than mine I'll give a shot of my booze"
>>31835560>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so grossLet's see why she thinks of herself as a monster. Maybe it made it easier to cope with what everyone else thought of her.
>>31835560>Press on. See what's behind the door, and why she's becoming so gross.Hit me with best shot.
"You've seen my dirty laundry and buckled, now its time to air out some of yours." You press forward. You forgot you even had it, but that spear you took out of the oldest Vance is comforting now. You have to lean hard into the door to force it open. What could be so bad? "If it's worse than mine, I'll give you a shot of my booze."A large terrible beast with many tentacles and eyes glares at you. "I told you you wouldn't like what you see!" It swipes a tentacle at you. "This room is as deep as it goes! This is me!"Another tentacle comes at you. You narrowly dodge it. You brandish the spear,"You can't hurt me! I'm a monster!"Calm down. What the hell is happening? You look around the room. The Clair-monster has a lot of eyes and tentacles, but not an infinite amount. It's guarding a locked box.Where are the memories? The feelings? All there is here is some fear.>Stab the monster in it's biggest eye with the spear. You have to protect yourself!>You can probably go for the box, but you might get hit in the process.>Reason with her! This is crazy! (write-in encouraged)>Something else
>>31835964>Stab the monster in it's biggest eye with the spear. You have to protect yourself!
>>31835964>You can probably go for the box, but you might get hit in the process.A monster that is yelling about how it is a monster isn't really all that scary. Go for the box.
>>31835964>Something elsePlease, it's a mental manifestation of her own self lothing. If there's anything in the universe Kat knows, it's that.I say we hug the tentacle beast.
>>31835964>Something elseHug her. We of all people can accept her for who she is, monster or not.
>>31835964>Apply hugs to problem
>>31836008Hug what a tentacle?
>>31835964>You can probably go for the box, but you might get hit in the process.He who fights monsters, blah blah blah the rest.
>>31835964"Ah, shaddap. You call that mental trauma? Nobody's impressed.">>You can probably go for the box, but you might get hit in the process."Pandora, eat yer heart out."
>>31835964I'll agree with hugging. Just feels right ya know?
>>31835964"Clair... you aren't a monster. This is ridiculous. People called me a good-for-nothing, and look? I've got friends, Pokemon, and a girlfriend who's a conniving little bitch, it seems who love me. All it took was opening up to people and showing them that inside, you're just like them. A little more gifted, but human too."
>>31836036>>31836008>>31836006/tg/: Love, hugs and understanding
>>31835964>Reason with her! This is crazy! (write-in encouraged)You consider this a monster? I've seen monsters Clair, hell I've walked the edge myself countless times. And you know what? I think you're just scared, scared that you might NOT be a monster, just a girl who's made mistakes. Being a monster is easy, you don't have to try to be better or change, but being a person? That's hard, cause it means you're flawed and the potential to be better is there if you try for it. But with that potential comes the possibility of failure. So why even try right?
>>31835964>Something elseHug the tentacle beast.Attacking her with the spear would make us no better than anyone who's tried to "fix" her.
>>31835964>Something ElseGoing with the hugs
>>31835964Clair wait! You have tentacles and I have no sense of shame, we can be billionaires
>>31836084Gonna be honest here, hugging the tentacle beast probably isn't the best idea when we're a teenaged girl. Especially since we kept filling her head with lewd thoughts.
>>31836121Ohgod I choked on my coke damn you
>>31835964"your not a monster, I've seen monsters, and none of them saw themselves as a monster, and not a one of them felt guilt."
>>31836140>>31836121Meanwhile, in real life>"Okay, so they've stopped screaming and crying, and now they're just sort of... writhing. What in Arceus' name is going on?"
>>31836159But you can't get consent from a tangela, with this is can be legal and mass marketed!
>>31835964Just walk up to the box.
>>31835964You know this would probably have a lot more impact if they didn't live in a world already full of monsters.
>>31835964>Something elseshe just needs a hug.work on her self image."you are what you choose to be"
/tg/: save the little sister from her internal demons with love and understanding, and then make tentacle porn.
>>31836121Hey now, we can't do a thing like that! It just wouldn't be right. Shame on you.Get Robin in here to watch before you even consider suggesting it again.Honestly, some people.
>>31836184You know, someone mentioned last thread that there were monitors in the gym, hinting that we might be broadcasting all this to everyone else.
>>31830379This really is Mindfucking edition now!
>>31836235In which case there's gonna be some massive group hugs after this.
>>31836225You need to multitask more.
>>31836225sounds about right
>>31836225im pretty sure that's at LEAST a win-win scenario
>>31835964>>31836008Treat her like a monster and she's a monster. Treat her like a girl and she's a girl.
>>31835964>Something elsegive that bitch a hugbitches love hugs
>>31836235Well, that's gonna be awkward as fuck.
>>31835964"Monster's are never this obvious."
>>31836235That will teach the bitch to poke about in peoples heads.
You approach slowly. A tentacle whips by your face. "You can't harm me like this."You flinch instinctively, but keep moving forward and drop the spear."Do you want to be a vegetable? I will flay your mind!"Another tentacle cracks at your face. This time it connects, stinging you. You don't let it deter you. You reach out to the large main eyeball and collection of mouths that form the center of her tentacle beast.You hug it. No, not 'it', her."What are you-?"You squeeze. "Monsters don't see themselves as monsters Clair. I think you're just scared. Scared you might not be a monster, just a girl who who's made mistakes. Being a monster is easy, you don't have to try to be better or change, but being a person? That's hard."The monster fades away. Clair does appear though, instead there's just the box. You hear a thump from it.Good thing you're good with locks. You're able to pop it open. Clair comes out, naked and shivering."I..." She doesn't know what to say. You hug her, the real her. It feels real. Her skin is cold. She's incredibly vulnerable.>Don't say anything. Just hug her.>Promise not to say anything about what you saw here.>Convince her to give you a badge.>Something else
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug her
>>31836566>>Something else"you are what you choose to be"
>>31836566>>Just hug her. Mutter something about having to apologize to Robin.We are hugging a naked girl here
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug her.
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug her.And grope her, of course.
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug herAs if there's another option here
>>31836601She's probably watching on a monitor though.She might like watching.
/tg/, this is why I love you. I really do.
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug her.After that is done. Maybe this.>>31836597
>>31836566Should have kept writing. We all knew the answer to this one.>QUICK NOW THAT SHES VULNERABLE GET HER!by huggings
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug her.Woohoo! Bandwagons!
>>31836566>Take advantage of her, lewd her.
>>31836566Hug her.Okay, so we know:Robin's keeping a secret from us. Not necessarily a large or important secret, but nonetheless a secret.Clair sabotaged Vance when he was younger, and has been beating herself up over it ever since.I expect Vance will resolve his issues on his own, now that we've shipped him with Jeanine, and now that he has a chance to face Clair directly.That secret from Robin, though, I'm curious about.But people usually have a reason for keeping secrets.I wonder what that secret could be.
>>31836816To be fair, it could just be something about her past. It said she had a secret, not that she lied to us.
>>31836816If it turns out this IS being broadcast, we may not need to ask.
>>31836816oh god, what if we got her pregnant?
>>31836816She used to be he.
>>31836566>Don't say anything. Just hug her.I remember being an asshole when I was a kid.
>>31836863Celebrate? I mean obviously Arceus is blessing our relationship.
>>31836566Quick! Suckerpunch her in the gut!Or hug her. Hugs are nice.
You hug her closely. She lets out a sob.You quickly rub your arms up and down to try to warm her up. It works a bit, but you're keenly aware of her nakedness. You wonder what Robin would say to this sight. You're probably just putting your mind elsewhere because you never know what to say in these situations. It lasts a good long time."You are what you choose to be."Suddenly you're back at the gym. You're standing exactly where you were standing when this all started. The machine is still strapped to your head. You glance around the room. After a few seconds people start to look at you."Kat, are you alright?" Robin approaches. "How long was I standing here?"Robin looks at the others, then you. "A-a few seconds." She tries to touch your foreheard. She looks back at Judy. "What's wrong with the machine?""Nothing is wrong with it," Clair's voice echoes out. "She's fine." Clair has massive bags under her eyes, but seems fine. She looks exhausted but relieved.Vance steps forward. "What did you do Clair?"You put a hand on his shoulder. "It's fine. I'm good. Really. Just adjusting."Jeanine speaks up. "You look tired."You feel tired. You're definitely not 100%. Neither is Clair though.Clair forces out a shout from her chair. "So do you still want your match right now?">Have a match now. You're both tough trainers>Come back tomorrow. You'll both probably make mistakes>Talk to Clair privately first (write-in)>Something else

>>31837106Aww, despite it being 1:30 and I should probably really get to sleep tonight I was hoping to go for a bit longer.
>>31837206Dammit I keep leaving my name on in non-relevant threads.
Thanks for coming everyone! I hope you have a great night! Next thread should be Saturday, or maybe even Friday if it opens up. I'll tweet as soon as I know for sure. Great write-ins and ideas as always. You guys rock!
So, what shall we talk about now that the thread has just hit autosage and the quest itself is over? Strategy? Angst? The possibility of a bitchin' threesome with Clair?
>>31837487Wobbefft and Alakazam scare. Maybe Solrock (depending on the situation)
>>31837116The good thing about wobbufet is that we don't have to use moves, so we can just wait for safeguard to run out and throw down leech seed or confusion for one turn. Wobbufet can't hurt us if we don't attack directly, so we can just beat it in the slowest battle ever.
>>31838399Mirror Coat is a psychic move that reflects special attacks, Dark Pulse is a special attack.Devon is a dark type.
>>31838483What I'm saying is, never use a special or physical move. It isn't the game so you don't have to attack every turn, so we can send out trunks, have him use leech seed, sap HP for a short while, wobbufet uses safeguard, leech seed goes away, wait a while, safeguard runs out, repeat. Eventually wobbufet will die since it won't heal and it can't damage us directly. Mirror coat and counter can't do shit to confuse ray or leech seed. Worst case scenario is destiny bond, at which point we switch pokemon, use a super effective attack and end it in one hit so mirror coat/counter can't go through. If she ever switches wobbufet, trunks is still a good pokemon anyway.
>>31838712You're forgetting Shadow Tag though.Admittingly, so did I, but dragging the fight out probably isn't a great idea.
>>31838862Good point, I didn't think of that. Well, if it is trunks, he can still switch out since he's a ghost type, but I suppose we can't rely on switching into a good matchup vs wobbufet or dodging destiny bond with a switch out.
