Magical girl. Former boy, just like your best friend Thomas.And the girl standing before you, laughing crazily with shadowlike blood oozing out of the stump of her arm, Angelica Stevens, the one who’d just transformed Thomas into another female, is a Witch. Around you are the remnants of Thomas’ room mixed together with what look like old dungeon scraps of rough wooden tables and dungeon shackles, littered with her usually giggling and whispering cotierie - they shriek, recoiling in pain as if you had slashed them instead of her. Thomas is still gasping and twitching on the floor, his- her – his hands still squeezing around the arm sliced off. It twitches as if alive still, scrabbling on his belly, as if to crawl further down his naked body to pry and examine his new form.The matte black tendril forms into a curved, scythe-like limb that Angelica waves before her face experimentally. As if ignorant of your blade still stained with her blood, poised to strike again at her undefended body. Your eyes play over the sheer silken robes she wears – decadent transparent clothing, with frills and decorations barely covering the form of her body beneath. Clashing with the black drip of blood down her side. Was this still a game? No, it couldn’t be – you mind struggles to rid itself of the sense of unreality that she had instilled on you.
>>32757803“You’ve found me out, it seems~ I was going to have some fun in guiding you around a bit more, but it looks like it’s too late for that, hmm? You’re up against the main villain in the first act, and exposed-“ here, Angelica shudders slightly, tugging at the low-cut slit down between her cleavage to reveal more of herself as she gestures with the new razor-sharp arm– “and your friend here is in a pinch. Whatever will you do, my darling Michael?”The dark grin never leaves her face as she watches you without blinking.[ ] She’s wounded, and badly so – any strength she’s showing is a bluff. Strike her down with magic and sword, now![ ] We can’t face a Witch, not directly! Jean said that was suicide! Fall back get the heck away from her while she’s still monologuing! Get help![ ] She- she doesn’t seem actively hostile… we can talk her down. We can try to.. get her to, to turn herself in, or to give up her power.. somehow. (How?)[ ] ’Darling Michael’? She’s sweet on us. Even if Witches are supposed to be crazy, I bet with some good loving, we could have her playing to *our* tune. Let’s see if we can’t just show her some love, instead of blades.[ ] Write-in

"So I assume you're the one who's been targeting Carrie? Dick move."

>>32759058Pretty much.She seem's talkative and pretty pleased by everything thats happening, shouldn't take much of a push.
[x] ’Darling Michael’? She’s sweet on us. Even if Witches are supposed to be crazy, I bet with some good loving, we could have her playing to *our* tune. Let’s see if we can’t just show her some love, instead of blades.[x] Why is she doing this? What's the point?You have gained a shadow token. You now have 4 shadow tokens.You go from aggressive to contrite in an instant. Despite the tickle in the back of your neck of dark magics – an almost tangible feeling of pure Aether roiling off her into the world – you drop the point of your sword, take a half step towards her. “Angelica-! I’m sorry, I’m so sorry-!” A feint. Seeing if she’d attack you when your guard is down. When she doesn’t, simply smiling as you close with her as you touch that shadowy limb, you begin to act more earnestly. It feels hard, chitinous under your fingertips, and you trace it upwards along to the wounded flesh. “I thought it was part of the game, I thought you were some dark sorceress who was going to, to do dark, terrible things upon us. What happened? What made you like this? You’re too beautiful to be some evil sorceress…”You tense very slightly as the sharp arm-tendril rises up, ready to dive out the way of a sudden attack, but none comes as she strokes down your back – click-click-click as it skitters over the tied up laces of your corset, tapping against the leather. It’s enough of a light touch that you don’t pull away. “You’re not frightened, are you. –perhaps just a fraction, around the edges. Not scared of what I can do? Could do to you? You must be concerned about dear Thomas, at least?” You spare a glance for the fallen, seeing the new girl’s eyes flick open, looking down dumbfoundedly at the new breasts under tight fitting clothing. All around you, the harem girls of Angelica are slowly recovering, crawling back upright into a circle round the three of you.
>>32759330“Eh. It didn’t hurt me to badly.” You shrug it off, even though the feeling unease grew. Another one changed, just like you. “Jean’s mistake could have been a lot worse-““Jean?” Angelica’s voice is hard all of a sudden, hugging you close with her other hand, round your waist, pressing her hips against yours. “You still think it was her responsible for this?” You interposing your hand between the two of you only encourages her further, and you feel a blush creeping up over your face as she presses her breast into your palm. Feeling her nipple dig into your soft hands.“-I don’t understand. Was it you who’s been sending these attacks at Cas- at Carrie?” It’s hard to keep your composure as the connection blinks into place in your mind, and the gleeful giggle that is her response hardly helps matters. “Why? Why have you done such.. terrible things aimed at her?”“Cassie. Call her that for me. It fits her so much more nicely than Carrie, don’t you think? I thought I’d managed to break you of the habit entirely. ” Her light laugh is of bells and silver, easily tarnished and twisted. “But, not just Cassie. Cassie, and her brother… and you. All three of you, so wonderful in your own ways. So in love, so warped in love, though none of you ever could do anything about it, could you? I couldn’t stand to see you living such humdrum lives any more. So I took matters into my own hands. My lovely little playthings.”
>>32759360She’s close – oh so close, her breath warm on your cheek and her large, blue eyes welling with madness and the tip of her limb so very slowly sinking into your shoulder. Digging in with pinpoint agony that makes you gasp. It’s suddenly so very hard to keep hold of your sword with that hand.“I’ll tell you what. I can answer any questions you have, but each time you do, I’ll get to play with another part of you. How does that sound?”She’s been manipulating you from the start.[ ] I need to know why she’s doing this. There must be some way to get her to stop, to turn around this… insanity. (Write in questions!) [ ] She- she’s the one responsible for it all. From – from the very beginning, even me turning female! I’ve got to get away from her, got to fight back![ ] She’s insane – after Thomas, Cas- Carrie AND me- I need to get away from the Witch, I need to warn Jean and get the others to safety![ ] Writein
>>32759391Yeah I've heard enough.Suspend her in the air with gravity, and move to cut her down.The gender stuff is harmless fun, but she sent a rape demon against Carrie, and we had to bear the brunt of it.
>>32759391>[ ] I need to know why she’s doing this. There must be some way to get her to stop, to turn around this… insanity. (Write in questions!)What is she getting out of this?Aside from getting off on watching, apparently.
>>32759706Seconding. Once we trap her in a gravity pain orb, she can answer all the questions we want
>>32760020>>32759706This is such an awful idea I lack words.She's oozing magic, and shrugged off losing an arm like it was nothing.And you think we'll just, yknow, float her around and she's just gonna take it?
>>32759706>>32760020[Make a fury roll; 4d6! Decide if you want to use a shadow token! Target number is 36!]
Rolled 5, 4, 2, 1 = 12>>32760132Use some tokens, yeah
>>32760131The alternative is to let her corruptive magic strengthen.Really, she's too strong for us to do anything but kiss her feet.This is much worse than the violation demon.
>>32760577Wait, is it always first is best, or do we normally have a dice pool and no one else tried rolling?
>>32760767Normally it's best of 3, but no-one else rolled for 15 minutes, so-
Rolled 2, 2, 6, 1 = 11>>32760132>>32760810It's probably because you gave an impossible to best number, but normally you still say you need two more rolls.Also, yes Shadow Tokens.
Rolled 3, 5, 3, 1 = 12>>32760132And now a last futile effort. With Shadow Tokens.
Rolled 5, 4, 6, 2 = 17>>32760132Rolling to express my displeasure that this option was chosen
>>32760937Why couldn't you roll faster? Not that it really fucking matters, since our only choices were to willingly become her fuck slave, or have it be forced on us.
>>32760844[4,4,24,2=34: 1 degree of failure, 2 off the target number]>>32760890[6,10,6,2=24: 2 degrees of failure]>>32760222[10,8,4,2=24: 2 degrees of failure]>>32760937[10,8,24,4=46: would have passed if it wasn't the 4th roll!]>>32759706>>32760020>>32760222[Used a shadow token. Two tokens used so far. Permanent change threshold dropped to 16 bursts.][Rolled 12x2=24; two degrees of failure!]You clench your fist about the hilt of the sword as best you can, trying to ignore the sudden trembling in your arm. “No games.” You could have talked it out, had she not gone after Carrie-! (You had to correct yourself before thinking your girlfriend’s name – just another indignity that Angelia’s put you through without knowing.)And as you start to drag your hand upwards to send her flailing into the air, the pain in your shoulder blossoms into an agony as the tendril caressing your shoulder with its sharp point digs into the soft flesh beneath – it pierces through your top with ease and it burns with a cold intensity.The sword clatters from your hand to the floor as you fall to your knees in pain, your arm spasming out of control.“No games? You were so eager to join mine, though… all I did was ask if you wanted someone to control your little adventures, to guide you through your magics and dictate what happened. And then you go and cut my arm off-!” Angelica twists the tapered limb into you further, and you scream. Around you, the smiles of blank-minded followers surround you, as she lets you drop to the floor. The blade vanishes after a moment or two, and you clutch at the wound behind you. Your fingers come away black, blood tinged with corruption, a deep infected sore reaching right the way to the bone.
>>32761390“Perhaps tit for tat’s right, in this case?” She’s whispering, now, stepping round you as you curse under your breath. “Perhaps you’d look a lot nicer asymmetrical, too… though, I have been playing with just you too much. Thomas-!”Over your shoulder, you see your friend flinch. Eyes filled with confusion, you see his hand gripped around a hardback book of all things. Angelica doesn’t seem to notice as she slides one foot up against the new girl’s waist, putting pressure across her thigh, bare toes slipping in to dig up against his crotch. Thomas flinches, another gasp of pleasure escaping his now feminine lips.From this angle, he looks almost like Carrie.“What should we do with our dear beloved Michael, Thomas? Do you think she’d look better missing one arm? Or perhaps that should be you, since you’re blameless – that’d give Michael a motivation to feel sorry for you and give you the love you’ve been wanting, wouldn’t it? Or perhaps Cassie, and your dirty little thoughts of incest could be that much more easily carried out?”"-Did that strike a nerve? Do you think you're in need of a different punishment, perhaps?" Thomas bites his lip, his horrified gaze crossing from you to the eratz GM. He swings at her, and she easily sways back out of reach – but you might just have a moment to act with that small distraction.[ ] Another strike at her! This one with all the magic we can muster![ ] We’ve got a moment – we can get away – regroup, get the word out and come back to stop her! She wouldn’t.. kill off one of her beloved pets, would she?[ ] Now! We can get Thomas to safety, if we get him out the door. Then it’d just be us vs her, and no-one else could get hurt.[ ] Writein
>>32761390You're not picking the one degree of failure one?What the fuck?
>>32761414[x] Now! We can get Thomas to safety, if we get him out the door. Then it’d just be us vs her, and no-one else could get hurt.
>>32761414Get Thomas out of here, tell him to find Jean.
>>32761414>] Now! We can get Thomas to safety, if we get him out the door. Then it’d just be us vs her, and no-one else could get hurt.
I think you might want to consider lowering the DC.
>>32761484>>32761512>>32761611When Angelica jerks back away from the wild, unaimed yet all the more heroic swing of a hardback book, it’s then you strike. With her back turned to you, you stagger to your feet and move – kicking off with one step, two – digging your feet into the ground with gravity at your side to give you enough friction to accelerate in such a short distance. And jump, pushing the ground away for both you and Thomas. You even manage to plant a solid boot on the Witch’s back as you catch Thomas in your arms – soft, squeezable, yielding in your grip – and kick off her, throwing him at the door. You begin to think you might be able to make it out yourself when a yank on your foot catches your attention – that shadowy limb had reached out and seized you, melting into your black boots as if it had always been attached, and it spins you over and over like a top in zero-G. Round and round-The lunging of the harem members at the other flying girl. Angelica’s face, now a broad, triumphant grin. The ceiling, luridly coloured in the strange light. Thomas crashing into the door, the magic wearing off as he rolls with surprising grace.“Run!” you shout to him as you spin again, catching his attention as one of the blonde girls lunge at him. “Tell Jean!” He dives out the way, and you can hear the patter of his feet down the hallway before you’re thrown back again into the far wall. Something may have broken, but it’s no pain at all compared to the white and red flashes in your vision with each throb of pain from your right arm. You can barely hold the shortblade in your left as you concentrate on righting yourself.Abruptly, you feel the breeze on your foot. She’d pulled the boot off you, laces and all.“You could have killed me dozens of times over! What do you want?!” you cry, staring down at her from the ceiling.
>>32762993Around her, the various girls clustered around their mistress, eager to reach out to her, to touch her. Some of them stayed behind, pulling the remains of the door back into place. Not a fantastic way to seal you in, but with the Witch in the way, it would be enough, you had no doubt.“Why, what I want?” Her smile is sickeningly sweet and far too innocent for her past acts.“I want to see you grow and change, Michael. As a hero, or as someone being corrupted, or your relationship with Cassie. I want to see you struggle against adversity, to force your way through against setback and failure, to take pride in your victories and mourn your failures.”The long tendril snakes around one dark haired girl – try as you might, you can’t remember her name, and she squeaks with happiness as the bladed tip traces down her chin – a red blossom of blood oozing out as it traces down the skin of her neck, splitting her clothes as she’s scored by the sharp tip. “I’ve got all the puppeted pawns I could ever use with me, and it’s so easy to make more. But I want to see something more amazing, to see something independent.”Her eyes gleam as she talks to you over the twitching, writhing body as it hugs itself in agony, in bliss. Raising her hand up to you as if in appeasement.“She said that if I were to push you, you’d the potential to give up everything but your heroism. Become nothing but a magical hero. I think it’s not quite that likely, but if you brave my dangers or fall to corruption, either one will be fun, wouldn’t it?” As if pondering something, she snaps her remaining fingers, and curvaceous armor forms about her, shining and brilliant and bright in your eyes, far different from your black leathers.
>>32763010“Perhaps it would be easier if I were to take control of far more than this city. In the place of these magi, you would have a queen! Not skulking and old but beautiful and terrible as the moon-! Treacherous as the seas! Stronger than all the Aether in this plane! All would love me and despair!“ She stops as you grip your sword once more, pressing her hand against one of the four wall. The wall with Carrie’s room on the other side. “Or perhaps, I should make a certain someone very happy indeed, along with you. How about a happy little ending, lost in each other’s arms, forever in love?”[ ] Shut her up with another attack, no matter how difficult it looks. If she wants to push you, you’ll play her games. It’ll keep her busy until Thomas can get through.[ ] Play along for the moment. The less you antagonise her, the less she’ll be wanting to hurt you. Carrie might get dragged in, but she’s less in danger than if one of you accidentally blows up the house.[ ] Try to escape. With her attention solely on you, it’ll be much harder, but you’ll be able to find a way – you managed it with Thomas, after all. You can slip round and rescue Carrie before Angelica gets to her.[ ] Refuse to fight or play nice – her plan’s based around you doing interesting things, right? Don’t act, and that’s all there is to defeating her.[ ] How bad could it be to go along with what she says? Eternal pleasure does sound good…[ ] Writein

>>32763279We know what sex is, we're already leagues ahead of Shirou.That said, Fighting against her is the flip side to giving in to her corruption, here. She isn't going to get rid of us till she's no longer interested.

>>32763515[24,4,2,8=38: 2 degrees of success! You have used 3 tokens so far; one remains.]For just a moment, you stand on the ceiling, looking down at the Witch. The one you thought had been swiftly becoming a friend. “No-! Don’t. Don’t go near Carrie.” An outburst that grew softer as each word was spoken. “I won’t let her get hurt.” An oath, more than a declaration.“You saying that makes me want to play with her more, you know…” but Angelica seems to have focused on you again. “What would you give to me to make me focus on you? Your body? Your mind, perhaps?” She holds out her hands as if to embrace you, and you drift towards her – slowly at first, then accelerating in tremendous spurt of force. She brings that bladed arm up to block – only for it to be yanked up straight with your power. Aiming for a stab straight through her head-The clique jumps in, colliding with Angelica’s side – the sword bites into her shoulder instead of piercing into her, and it jerks in the wound as you force it up with gravity. Twisting and cutting flesh, you hope, trying to paralyse the other shoulder in the same way yours is in agony. The armour’s too tough for the thin blade to saw through it, and you withdraw the blade to spin and stab again, this time trying to strike at her chest, at her heart. Taking a moment to disperse the crowd of girls around you with a crushing pressure – they slump and collapse to the floor, unable to do anything but struggle to breathe. It keeps them out the way as you parry another lightning-fast strike, bringing the sword back in line to riposte. Nonfatal wound again, this time barely piercing the shield before the gravity you try to use on it drags the blade from the hole, but this one seems to have winded her – she staggers back, coughing, and laughs as she spits.
>>32764121[gah, capatcha failed to go through-]“You’re- you’re actually trying to kill me. You’re trying to put me down!” A mixture of relief and glee as she wipes her mouth clean, narrowly avoiding another strike. Her counterattack whiplashes from between your legs sideways and misses your feet barely as you jump across them. “I’m glad. So very happy-!” The tingling sensation of magic forms from around her, runes crackling into existence in a showy display.Again you stand above her, but this time she’s building up something big![ ] Keep on the offensive!
