Twitter: https://twitter.com/dirtylemonjuiceLast thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/32714053Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/NtpCW4qYYou are Carmen May and you just had a very long day yesterday. After getting suddenly pushed into a raid on an Armada hide out, the assault team stumbled upon a roided up rabid mummy that pretty much tore through two of their members and Gail's sword. Luckily you managed to hold it in place while the others piled on explosives. You did however end up going home with a new friend, a rottweiler puppy that some jerk kept in the closet. Of course, because Gail lives in a dorm it fell upon you to take him home.You expected Beatrice to be mad or irritated at you for bringing home a dog, but instead she got a little excited and went out to buy a bunch of dog stuff, while Emma got a little bit jealous. At first you didn't really peg her to be much of a dog person but then again she's dating a werewolf. Lyn also was pretty happy to see the dog and played with him for a bit apparently she was pretty withdrawn all day, just studying a magic book that her father had given her in your room for most of the day.
>>32757205The dog did cheer her up, but you still feel guilty over her father possibly not coming back ever again. And you still feel the need to tell her.And that's why you're at a restuarant of her choice along with Emma for moral support, you figure that breaking the bad news while eating her favorite food wouldn't make it too hard on her. After all, one thing girls love is food. "Why are you smiling like that? Its weirding me out" Lyn asks in between spoonfuls of her ice cream brownie dessert. "I..uh.." you start. Emma taps you on the shoulder "I'm going to touch up on my makeup for a sec." she gives you an uneasy smile and heads off to the bathroom.Lyn continues eating her dessert, you probably want to get this over with.>About your father..(writein)>You know when I said you wouldn't be separated for long?>I'm sure your father will be back eventually>Put it off until later, you can't think straight>Other(writein)Forgot my trip
>>32757219>About your father..."I don't really have an easy way to say this, so...you probably won't see him again. I am sorry, though I doubt that matters much."
>>32757219>About your father...I'm afraid his crimes were more serious than I had anticipated. I'm sorry, but he won't be coming back. Of course, he must have known that when he agreed to come along. He gladly gave himself up to protect you, so he must have been a good man. I know you probably want to lash out now, but I beg that you please don't run away or put yourself in danger in the process. At least don't waste his sacrifice in that way.That's fuckin' wordy!
>>32757355>>32757415Something like these would work. We should definitely tell her now though.
>>32757219I'll back >>32757415>>32757205>After a bit of thinking I just realized I liked writing SoL more. Oh well, lesson learnedYou can still do some SoL here.
"About your father...I don't really have an easy way to say this so..you probably won't see him again." you pause and sigh. "His crimes were more serious than I realized. I'm sorry but he won't be coming back...He probably knew that when he agreed to come along though. He gladly gave himself up to protect you so he must have been a good man." you try to gauge her reaction but she just sits there staring at her slowly melting ice cream. "I know you probably want to hit me or call me names or something, but please don't try to run away or put yourself in danger because of this. I promised him that I would protect you, so don't waste his sacrifice if you're mad at me." you look straight at her, prepared for anything she might dish out.After what feels like ages, she finally looks up at you and looks you in the eye. "I..I always figured he must have been doing something bad...we were always moving around. Always in a hurry...it feels like something like this would happen eventually, where he ends up not coming home." she says the last part almost in a whisper.
>>32757722She starts shoveling the rest of her dessert into her mouth with tears in her eyes as you watch in awe. You didn't really expect this, but as soon as she's done she puts down her spoon and continues. "...Thank you but its probably hard on you too right? I mean you don't look much older than me">Reassure her, its fine. You're the one who took up the responsibility.>We'll get through this together, maybe she can go to a real school>Stay silent, you still feel pretty bad for her.>Other(writein)
>>32757747>We'll get through this together, maybe she can go to a real schoolHug time!
>>32757747>Reassure her, its fine. You're the one who took up the responsibility.>We'll get through this together, maybe she can go to a real school
>>32757747>>Other(writein)Hug her, or we have no soul.
>>32757747>Reassure her, its fine. You're the one who took up the responsibility.Yeah, give her a hug.And damn, I'll probably miss some votes as long as this WC match is going.
"I'm the one who took responsibility after all. So its fine, really!" you laugh. "You'll probably be able to go to school too, make friends and even get a cute boyfriend?" Lyn smiles, trying not to cry. "Y-Yeah, going to school sounds fun." you can't really help yourself, so you stand up and go to her side of the booth and give her a big hug. You stay there, letting her sob into her shoulder while shooing away the waiter. Jeez doesn't he see that you're having a moment here? After a while, Emma comes back to sit down and you take her to the bathroom to get cleaned up and to wipe the snot off of your blouse. "Why don't we go shopping for the rest of the day? You know, just have fun and stuff?" you ask her. Lyn nods enthusiastically and smiles, "I'm going to put a huuuge dent in your wallet!"Getting back to the table, you nod in approval at Emma and pay the bill plus the tip.Emma skips and smiles "So where are we going now?">To get clothes, lots of clothes.>To find a gift for Beatrice and maybe Gail>To the arcade, there's a DDR machine that's been waiting to be played>Other(writein)
>>32758077>To get clothes, lots of clothes.Clothes first, gotta cheer her up!
>>32758077>To find a gift for Beatrice and maybe Gail>To get clothes, lots of clothes.Gotta do both! Let's see if we can find something badge-like for Beatrice, heh.
>>32758077>To find a gift for Beatrice and maybe GailGifts have priority!
>>32758077>>To get clothes, lots of clothes.>>To find a gift for Beatrice and maybe Gail>>To the arcade, there's a DDR machine that's been waiting to be playedWhy not both?
>>32758462>bothBut that's three, anon.
First things first. Its time to get clothes, lots of clothes. "Let's go to a few clothes shops." you nudge Lyn with your elbow. Lyn smiles and skips along with Emma right into one of the more high end clothes shops.Looking at the price tags...yeesh you're super grateful that Kwan paid you for your efforts last night, in a pretty large cash sum you're not even sure what to do with. When you and Beatrice were alone you asked her what she did with her pay, she just shrugged and said she invested it. Its probably why she can afford to run a bar with no customers in any case. Browsing around, you think about your childhood. Despite your father bringing in a pretty large paycheck your parents were still penny pinchers. You learned quickly that if you wanted something, you had to make sure you kept your grades high. Even then you had to work hard to convince your mother that whatever they got you it wouldn't interfere with school, unfortunately that happened pretty rarely.
>>32758644Now that you can pretty much buy whatever you want, it takes the novelty out of buying anything too racy or outrageous. You see Lyn piling on the clothes on her right arm while browsing through. Hopefully those are to try on...you shake your head. You'll buy whatever she wants!...today.Figuring that finding a gift for Beatrice is in order...and maybe Gail that big oaf...so you head over to Emma, who was browsing through some skirts."Here hold this up to you." Emma hands you an admittedly cute looking skirt and you hold it up to yourself. "Hmmm....That looks nice, you should buy it.">Hold on to the skirt, you do look pretty good...>What kind of gift should I get Beatrice?>Put back the skirt, you can shop for yourself later>Do you think Beatrice would want a badge? >Pick up another skirt for yourself and then ask about gift ideas>Other(writein)
>>32758663>>Hold on to the skirt, you do look pretty good...>>What kind of gift should I get Beatrice?
>>32758663>Hold on to the skirt, you do look pretty good...>What kind of gift should I get Beatrice?>Do you think Beatrice would want a badge? Don't tell us the badge is stupid!
>>32758663>Hold on to the skirt, you do look pretty good...>Do you think Beatrice would want a badge?Find something sexy for our dates! Not the first one since that's too aggressive, but later ones.
>>32758663>Hold on to the skirt, you do look pretty good...>What kind of gift should I get Beatrice?We're obviously getting Gail a new sword that isn't shit.
>>32758898She might take offense though...So obviously that's what we do.
You hold onto the skirt, you do look good in it. You feel you can pull off a lot of things in fact, but that could wait."Hey Emma..What kind of gift should I get for Beatrice?" you ask tentatively. Emma laughs and shrugs. "I have no idea, she's impossible to shop for! Every holiday and birthday I agonize over it." "Do you ask her?" you ask and Emma nods and leans in."Just between you and me, she always says something corny like 'You're all I need' or 'as long as you're here'. Its ridiculous! Though I think you already made her week by bringing home that puppy." Emma whispers. You burst out laughing, you had no idea that Beatrice had such a mushy side to her. "Geez, so you really have no idea? How about a police badge? Since she used to be an enforcer and all." you suggest. Emma gives you a warm smile and a thumbs up. "Go for it. At least there's something." You nod and head over to a novelty store real fast to pick up a novelty badge that says 'World's best police officer'. You then head back to the store to witness Lyn and her massive pile of clothes on the counter. "Geez Carmen where did you go? I thought you ran away." she laughs and pats her pile.You add your own few articles of clothing, shopping for something...sexier can wait for the later dates. And witness the total go into triple digits. You balk and sag your shoulders maybe your parent's stinginess is hereditary, as you felt a slight pain when swiping your debit card.
>>32759300Next is shopping for Gail, you figure that getting her a sword that doesn't suck would be the best gift for her. Yeah she loved that Katana, but it doesn't seem to do much against hard muscled mummies. You ask Emma about a nearby weapon's shop and she rattles off directions in a heartbeat.---After about an hour's drive, you all arrive at a seedy looking place, ran by a seedy looking guy with a scraggily beard. "Emma! Sis, how're ya doin'" he waves at her."Fine, but we're looking for a sword. For a friend. Got anything cool in?" Emma says smiling brightly. The guy with a scraggily beard immediately leads everyone to the back, where there's an arsenal of legal and not-so-legal weapons hanging on pegs. "Take your time sis." he shuts the door behind him, leaving you all to browse.Lyn immediately wanders around, touching everything before you can utter the words "Don't touch anything" so you decide to not bother with nagging her for today. You head towards the wall of swords, a lot of them look sharp, deadly and expensive. You can't believe you're about to spend this much on Gail, she totally owes you one for this.>Pick up another Katana, its what she's used to>Pick up a Scimitar, it looks pretty sweet>Pick up a Claymore, looks kind of big, but Gail is tall>Pick up a naginata, swords are overrated>A rapier looks nice and classy>Other(writein)
>>32759327>Pick up a Scimitar, it looks pretty sweetScimitars are cool + good, definitely.
>>32759327>Get her a proper broadsword. One-and-a-half handed hilt, to make her strength really matter.Against supernatural critters you need something that can properly chop and stab.
>>32759389Yeah, sounds good!
You pick up a nice looking broad sword and the sheath that goes along with it that also comes with a rich looking royal purple cloth. "Wow Carmen, are you going to get Gail that?" Emma comes up from behind suddenly, you kind of jump, almost dropping the sword."You scared me! And yeah..it seems studier than the old sword she had and against supernatural folk you need something that can properly chop AND stab." you explain. Emma pinches your right cheek and laughs. "It is pretty pricey sweetheart." "I'll deal with it." you say with your right cheek still being pinched. Man you hate it when she does this but you can't really tell Emma no. You make your purchase with the scraggily guy, who you now know as Freddy. It turns out he's actually Emma's younger brother. Not that you could tell with that huge beard. Emma pulled the longest hair out of his face and snickered at him when he yelled in pain. "I tell him he should shave all the time." she rationalizes it.Lyn asks you about the prospect of her owning a rocket launcher and you immediately decline. You have to draw a line somewhere. However you let her pick the next location and it was to...where again?>The indoor pool, swimming is pretty fun>The arcade to play tons and tons of games>To an electronics store, Beatrice is cleaning out the "storage room" right now and a teen girl does need a computer>Other(writein)
>>32759876>Ask Lyn where she'd like to goI'm sure she has a preference between these!
>>32759876>>The indoor pool, swimming is pretty fun
>>32759876>>The arcade to play tons and tons of gamesIs Lyn a casual? Time to find out.
>>32759876>To an electronics store, Beatrice is cleaning out the "storage room" right now and a teen girl does need a computerPC! PC!
>>32759876>>To an electronics store, Beatrice is cleaning out the "storage room" right now and a teen girl does need a computerCan't deny her her computer, she aready lost one authority figure.
>>32759876>To an electronics store, Beatrice is cleaning out the "storage room" right now and a teen girl does need a computer
>>32759876>Lyn asks you about the prospect of her owning a rocket launcher and you immediately decline.Come on Carmen, it'll be fine, nothing could go wrong.
Oh right, the electronics store. A girl does need her own computer though. You fondly remember the computer your parents got for you. The operating system was years behind and it always seemed to blue screened on you. Lyn heads straight over to the laptops with Emma in tow, looking at the ones with those nice floral or butterfly coverings. You wander around the TV section, looking at some nice flat screens and they only seemed to get bigger and more expensive. You even saw something about a new resolution a big whopping 4k? 90 inch TVs? You wonder why someone would need a TV as large as a full wall in their house.Watching some in store commercial for a while you can't help but feel a pair of eyes on you, as if they're just watching you. You turn around and see an dreadfully plain looking man this time in a dark blue polo shirt, staring right at you while smiling. You recognize him from the rundown apartment.>What the hell are you doing?>Say nothing, glare right back at him>Try to catch him. Screw breaking things in the process>Other(writein)
>>32760340>Say nothing, glare right back at himStaring-contest!
>>32760340>>Say nothing, glare right back at him
>>32760340>Go find EmmaAnd ask what we should do
>>32760340>Try to catch him. Screw breaking things in the processGRAB 'IM!
>>32760340>>Say nothing, glare right back at himLyn is here, we can't do anything stupid. Be careful.
>>32760737Good point, we should honestly not engage him at all.
>>32760374>>32760391Deciding not to approach him or say anything you just muster up the most intense glare you could and stare directly back. After a very long minute he speaks. "So did you like that surprise I left you Carmen?" You end up dropping your glare and replace it with a look of shock. You try to muster up something to say but he chuckles. "Do you really want to start a fight here Carmen? I don't really peg you as someone that'll let civilians get hurt." he smiles at you and nods. "I'll probably see you around sometime. Have fun with the rest of your day off."The man walks off, even his stupid walk is confident. What's his problem? How did he know your name? You feel a poke in the small of your back and you jump. "Emma!""Nope, its Lyn and I'm ready~" you turn around to see Lyn smiling and holding some laptop accessories covered in butterflies as well. "Looks pretty sweet huh? And its only $500~"You hang your head and laugh. "You're really taking advantage of this huh?" "I warned you when I said I was going to empty your wallet." Lyn jokes. "But seriously, thank you for everything. I mean it....its nice to suddenly get a big sister." she wraps you up into a big hug and you hug her back. Its nice to suddenly get a little sister...
>>32761142You finally pay for everything and make your way out of the electronics store. Looking around the parking lot, you see no sign of Polo guy or Lana or any Armada creepers hanging around. More or less he pretty much declared openly that he's been watching you.----On the way home you can't help but feel incredibly tense. Maybe its his stupid mind games getting to you, but you can't help but feel angry about it. Some creepy asshole has been watching you, your friends, your almost little sister and your possible maybe girlfriend. Not cool. Emma squeezes your shoulder and gives you a concerned look, you realize you've been clinging onto the steering wheel pretty hard. Ugh you need to relax.
>>32761142D'awwwwBut seriously, no spoiling her in the future.
>>32761170Going through the door you're greeted by the puppy which now has a collar on him with a name engraved into it..."Pepper? Really? You named it Pepper?" you ask Beatrice, who smiles unusually brightly. Jessica is also sitting at the bar, you wave meekly and go to sit next to her. "Yeah and I also taught him how to sit." Beatrice demonstrates as such, Pepper sits immediately and wags his little stumpy tail. "It practically took all day." "Well if that took all day, who was clearing out the storage room?" you ask, but your answer immediately becomes clear when you see Gail stumble down stairs."I moved all your crap." Gail says as she practically collapses into one of the chairs. "Hey Carmen, and that must be Lyn." Lyn shyly says hi and runs upstairs with her bags of goodies. >Good job Gail, you scared her. >Just wait and see what I have in the car for you>Beatrice I have a present for you too>So I guess everyone was productive today?>Other(writein)
>>32761201>>Just wait and see what I have in the car for you>>Beatrice I have a present for you too
>>32761170We definitely need to tell Beatrice about it. Afterwards.>>32761201>Just wait and see what I have in the car for you>Beatrice I have a present for you too
>>32761201>>Just wait and see what I have in the car for you>>Beatrice I have a present for you too>Tell them about the Polo-Shirt guyIt time for presents!
>>32761201>Just wait and see what I have in the car for you>Beatrice I have a present for you tooOf course!Polo-guy can wait until we're done enjoying ourselves.
>>32761201We should have movie night some day. Get Jessica over, make Lyn be social and get comfortable. In fact, why not today? Even if Jessica can't make it on short notice.
>>32761410I like it
Leaving the Polo guy matter for later, you decide to put the topic on gifts. "Well since you're here Gail, just wait and see what I have in the car for you." Gail stands up, heads to the bar and grins. "Really? What?" says while trying to grab your keys. Eventually you let her win, so she runs out to the car, eager to see what you got her. "You'll see, and also Beatrice I have a present for you too." you grab Beatrice's hand and put the badge into it. Beatrice stares at the gift. "World's best cop...." she raises the badge to the light. "....." can't she just have a normal person reaction for once? Suddenly, you feel Gail pick up into a massive hug. "Who told you to spend this much on me you moron." you try to wiggle out of the hug while Jessica laughs. "When you broke your stupid sword, so I got you a better one." you manage to say while a little flustered. Finally, Gail puts you down. "You're now my favorite shrimp you know that?" "You're not bad for a beanstalk yourself." you counter. After all the commotion winds down you have a suggestion on your mind, it'll make Lyn more at home. "Why don't you guys stay over and we'll...">Watch a movie>Play board games.>Other(writein)
>>32761688>Watch a movieMonopoly only ever ends in tears
>>32761688>Play board games.As long as it's something modern and not monopoly. It offers more interaction than watching a movie, which would be nice to get Lyn comfortable and included in the group.
>>32761688>>Play board games.
Rolled 2>>32761688UUuuuuhhhh..I'll roll for it. 1 movie 2 games.
>>32761688>>Other(writein)Let Lyn decide.
>>32761688Mildly surprised that Gail liked the sword, she was pretty attached to that katana.
>>32761882She's a sword-slut, any sword's as good as another!No but really, one sword's busted, might as well try another.
>>32761969I would have figured she would prefer to have the katana fixed over getting a new sword.
"Why don't you guys stay over and we'll play a board game or something. You know, to make Lyn feel more at home." you suggest. Beatrice rustles your hair, messing it up. "Uno?" "Yeah, that sounds like fun." you say, somehow though, all the skips and reverses end up being used on you. But its a noble sacrifice for making Lyn feel better.Beatrice and Emma rush upstairs and Gail shortly follows behind while checking out her new sword. Just you and Jessica linger behind.Jessica hugs you from behind and you blush. "So where's my present?"Your mind goes blank for a second. >Uh...Wait until the date?>Give her a kiss, just a small one>Play dumb, what gift?>You can't really think of anything right now>Other (writein)
>>32762149>Play dumb, what gift?
>>32762149>Play dumb, what gift?Then when she presses the point>Give her a kiss, just a small one
>>32762149>Play dumb, what gift?Then kiss her. Then tell she gets the real one at the date
>>32762149>>Give her a kiss, just a small one>>Play dumb, what gift?
>>32762149>Play dumb, what gift?>Give her a kiss, just a small oneThe classic move!
"What gift? I didn't think you were expecting a gift?" you play dumb and lean into her hug. She tickles your neck with her lips and then blows on your ear. "You forgot about me? How could you?" she says in a playfully dramatic tone and lets go.You turn around and smile. "Hmm? What kind of gift were you looking for?" you step towards her. "Clothes? Jewelry?"Jessica giggles. "A nice ring would be great. With diamonds." You just smile and kiss her instead, a small one. But before she could kiss you back you back away. "Ah, but you get your real gift when on the date." Jessica smiles coyly at you and signs dramatically. "You know I can't wait that long right?" woah really?You try to keep up your mysterious air though. "How about tomorrow if you're so impatient?" good one. Jessica blows a kiss at you and turns around. Wait was that a yes or a no? You shake your head and follow her upstairs to play a mean game of Uno.
>>32762735You arrive to see the cards dealt out already and Beatrice wearing the 'World's greatest police officer' badge on her shirt. You almost chuckle at that, you almost thought she didn't like it.It does seem like that Gail ends up absorbing your bad luck at this game somehow, as she ends up being the target of various draw two chains, skips and reverses. Though the actual winner ends up being Emma every time. The though of the polo guy stays on your mind, but you figure it would be inappropriate to bring it up. So you push it back for now and focus on having fun, plus you have a hot date tomorrow. 6You do however want to preserve these good times as much as possible. -Thread 8 end-I'll announce the next thread on twitter. Because I have an interview for a job on monday so stay tuned
>>32762760 Good luck with that, and thanks for running.
>>32762760See you next thread.
>>32762760Alright, thanks for running!It was nice with a slower thread too.
>>32762735Jessica a cute
Looks like the suptg archive is broken. So unless that's fixed by the time this thread dies, this one will probably be on foolz.
>>32763311Man, that sucks.
>>32763311It's working for me now.
