>>33253602“Thanks,” you say. “But to be honest I’m probably digging it more myself. It’s fun as hell.”Wolfgang laughs. “I noticed,” he says. “Not every day us dance princes get humbled, you know.”“To be fair, you’d probably give me a run for my money if I didn’t catch you off guard,” you say, briefly making way for a couple of giggling girls as they head across the floor. “Really,” you continue, “you’ve got nice moves –didn’t see something like that from you.” You chuckle at the thought that’s just popped into your mind. “Nobody’s going to know what the hell’s going on in the court room when you win the verdict and just like, break it down right there and then.“I’m counting on it. Everyone knows that a man of the law is only as good as his special moves,” Wolfgang replies. You’re pretty sure that’s exactly how it works. “Yep,” you agree. Wolfgang’s a pretty chill guy, and though you’re in the middle of a sea of bodies, it’s kind of like you’re not at the same time. It’s the most relaxed you’ve been in a long time. (-2 Stress: 2/100)But a rave is not the place to chat with anybody. “Say, you here with anybody?” you ask. “Besides Moriah, I mean. Or are you just going stag?” You wouldn’t want to pull him away from anybody. Or you know. If he was with somebody, you wouldn’t want to be a jerk and screw it up.Wolfgang shrugs. “I came here with some pals, but they do their own thing and I do mine.”
>>33256218That fits your purposes just fine. “Well my thing’s checking out all the freaks,” you say. “You still dance mastering here or you want to come along?”Wolfgang winces, as if the idea is some huge hassle that will ruin his scheduling for the rest of the night. “I was planning on being the center of attention for the next three, four hours, but I suppose I could take some time out,” he says wryly. “Let’s get out of this mess.”The two of you weave and force your way through the crowd. It seems like ten minutes, but eventually you reach the sparsely populated sidelines where you can actually like, you know, breathe and stuff. You’re surprised to find scents besides body odor in the air, now that you’re not jammed in with people. There’s the stale smell of concrete and mixed flavoring of hair products and rubber from all the masks and fake costume bits.The air is thick, but cool in comparison to the crush of the dancers.
>>33256233Wolfgang comes up beside you and leads the way over to the back of the place, from where you can get a good look at a lot of the party. You find a comfortable point and spend a few minutes picking out the coolest and the most disturbing costumes, while you lean up against the wall and take a break from the action.“She should know better,” you say, wincing at the fat girl trying to pull off a sexy Tinkerbell. Especially after seeing the adorable version just like, an hour or two ago, this is especially horrendous. “I mean, wear what you want, but you should at least, like, acknowledge your body shape, ‘cause now I’m stuck here acknowledging it.”“Just pray you don’t see the Wonder Woman,” says Wolfgang, a traumatized look in his eyes.“Why’s – “ and then you see her. You wish you hadn’t. “And I am never going to forget seeing that.” (+3 Stress: 5/100)
>>33256259Wolfgang’s face is devoid of feeling. “I am so sorry.”“You and me both, man,” you say, internally horrified.“And now to change the subject,” Wolfgang says, changing the subject. “Moriah told me about how you stuck up for her. Thanks for that, by the way. And sorry about how it came around to bite you in the ass.”>I was kind of stupid.>Don’t remind me.>I had to do it again, I’d do the same thing. Except, you know, the almost drowning thing. I’d probably change that part.>Yeah, well, nobody else was there, so.>So, why Draco Malfoy?

You smile ruefully at yourself. “Yeah well, don’t be,” you say. “If it was like Groundhog Day, I’d totally do it again. Except, you know, I wouldn’t get wet. I would probably do that different. Unless like, I was trying to kill myself? Because I guess variety would be the only reason for living at that point, even if it involved dying.”“Right,” says Wolfgang, nodding in agreement with everything you’ve just said.You’re pretty sure there’s sarcasm there somewhere, but you decide to accept it at face value. “So anyway, why Draco? Is it just like, because you can pull it off, or is it more like because it appeals to your inner sense of looking good?”“Both,” Wolfgang says. “But furthermore, I do it for Slytherin.”“You’ll have to explain that one,” you say. Although the other points are just as valid. Looking cool is its own reward.Wolfgang smirks. “They’re always portrayed from a Gryffindor-centric point of view, so it might seem like they’re a bunch of cartoon villains,” he says. “But out of all the houses, you know it’s the Slytherins that know how to have the best time. You don’t see them settling for less – they’ve got ambition. They’re all about raising the stakes.”
>>33257123“Yeah, ‘cause they’re evil,” you say.“Evil or not, there’d be no plot without Slytherins. Everyone else is too busy keeping the status quo.”Well, you guess that makes sense. Kind of. They do have a cool mascot, so you’ll give them that, at least. “Hey, by the way,” you say. “I kind of ran into your dad a while ago. He was uh. Busy, kind of. What’s his job again?” Maybe it’s prying, but you’d rather know straight up whether the Crowthers know about all the magic business or not.“He runs a law firm,” Wolfgang informs you.“Oh,” you say, kind of disappointed. “He looks the type.”Wolfgang pauses for a minute. “He… has some other work on the side, though.”You raise an eyebrow and glance surreptitiously at him.He remains serious. “This have something to do with your ‘costume’?” he asks.>How do you respond?
>>33257147>What? My costume?
>>33257147>How do you respond?"Well, I dunno. Does it?"
>>33257147"N-nope. Where did you say Moriah was?"Deflect deflect deflect
>>33257147"HAHA, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, MY GOOD HUMAN CHUM."
>>33257147>Okay, how much about all this stuff do you know about? Because I'd hate to tell you something I shouldn't have and get in trouble.
>>33257147"How much does Moriah know?"
>>33257248This, he knows, there's no going back.
>>33257147"N-nope. Well, itwasniceseeingyouMoriah'ssexyolderbrotherbye"
>>33257147>"What costume, Moriah's-hot-older-brother?"
>>33257147I like this>>33257248
>>33257147"It certainly doesn't have anything to do with the costume I way every other day."
>>33257147"I heard those quotation marks Wolfy, so I guess that answers my actual question.You planning on following in his footsteps?"
>>33257147>W-why, do you like my horns, Wolfgang-kun?
>>33257147"Mmmhmm. Exactly."Eventually, once the IMPLICATIONS are finished..."So, I remember you saying to me on a car ride home that you were glad that I was Moriah's friend, and that she was going to have a difficult time ahead of her. After I came out to your dad, I asked if she knew about his real job. He said, and I quote, “If you do not know, then it is not my place to say.” Now, that's a non-answer if I know it, so of course, I'm asking you the same question. And I really just want the answer to be straight.""Does Moriah know about us?"
>>33257147"It looks good on me, doesn't it. The one day a year I can 'wear' it in public without people freaking out.Does Mor know?"
He's gonna think we're brown-nosing He'll think our friendship with his his sister and our amazing seduction attempts were a sham to get close to his dad.He'll hate us and we'll be locked out of both best husbando route and backup lesbian route.
>>33257621Then make it clear that it makes us scared an uncomfortable, rather than, 'Fuck yeah, I'm so glad your dad's my boss.' 'Yeah, that was... kind of a huge fucking shock to me.'
>>33257248I like this one. I get the vibe that the whoe family but Moriah knows about magic and shit
>>33257147>My part time job puts me in contact sometimes.
>>33257147>"I'm just trying to figure out how much you and Moriah know since Papa C doesn't seem to want to give anything that could possibly be seen as a straight answer."
>>33257147>>How do you respond?http://vocaroo.com/i/s18BIFhp2P9h
>>33257621>backup lesbian route.Implying we'll even need it with primary path.
Don't panic. I was caught up by something for the past while, so don't expect an update soon.This day has been full of unexpected delays. Such is the joy of questing.
>>33258071Jesus, that's cute. And that giggle at the end makes it even better.
I laughed out loud at least three times while reading this part. But alas, I'm Yuropoor and I need to be at work to advance the socialist cause.I fully intend to wake up to make outs.. Plox.
“My costume?” you ask, your brain shutting down. “Why’d it… no. You see, the thing is that uh… that… the uh….” You have exhausted your available supply of words. “Fuck.” (+10 Stress: 15/100)“You were really counting on nobody figuring out you weren’t in costume, weren’t you,” says Wofgang.You sulk. His serious expression kind of breaks into one of amusement. “So you’re definitely not with Meckor, then.”“Well… no,” you say. “How’d you – how much stuff do you know? Because I’m not good at keeping track of this kind of crap.”“What I don’t know is how you’re living with the Hallows,” says Wolfgang, warily. “You have to know they’re demonbane. Do you have any idea what they'd do to you if they found out what you are?”>How do you respond?
>>33259388"They know. I actually kind of work for your dad now."
>>33259388"Give me a place to sleep and call my horns cute, probably."
>>33259388They know. It's why they adopte-... took me in.
>>33259388Treat me like a normal living family, you know, because they already know.
>>33259388They know and your dad knows
>>33259388"About that... They kind of do. And I'm kind of working for your dad. He knows as well, did an odd job for him not long ago."
>>33259388"They know. I've been working with them lately."
>>33259438>>33259448>>33259451Something like this. Gush a little about how nice they are to us before shutting up all embarrassed.
>>33259388Probably welcome me into their home and treat me with love and affection.
>>33259388Try not to burst out laughing, fail and start giggling like a little girl."Offer me a part time job. No seriously, I'm a Deputy Marshal. Even did a side job for your dad pretty recently. I'm a real American hero.They've known what I was since we met, and they still took me in. They're good people, barely even batted an eye when I brought a Hellhound home with me."
>>33259570This one is the best one
Changing this >>33259498 to this:>>33259570
>>33259570Aye, changing>>33259480 to >>33259570Even though the idea is the same.
>>33259570This, but change 'brought a Hellhound home with me' to 'brought my Hellhound home with me'. Reeber's been with us from the start.
>>33259388We should probably mention, at some point during this conversation, that we're Hellborn, not full Demon. Given the panoply of demonic traits we're showing, I wouldn't be surprised if he thought otherwise.
>>33259388Laugh so loud it turns heads, in spite of the music. Answer in the affirmative and burst out laughing again. Ask him "OK, OK... But you've got to tell me. Are any of the crowthers vampires? No way is your house that creepy on its own."
>>33259971You know, I second this.I also second wolfing down Wolfgang's Wolfgang but that's just me.
>>33260251Eh i think you messed up there
You purse your lips in thought. “I have a pretty good idea, actually, but I think it’s not the same idea of what you have,” you say.Wolfgang waits for you to elaborate.“They’d probably like, let me make a mess of their guest bedroom and try to make me not suck at school so much,” you say, kind of laughing to yourself at the thought. “You know, treat me like family and stuff. Because they already know. Because it’s why they ad – er, gave me a place to stay.”Your answer surprises Wolfgang. “Really?” he asks, blankly.“And your dad knows too,” you say. “I like, became a deputy marshal on Monday. Not like, the real Deputy Marshal, but like, a part time deputy marshal.” You look back over the dancing crowd. “I was trying to figure out what you know – I guess you don’t know anything, really,” you say, snickering to yourself.Wolfgang jams his palm into his face. “I know my father never tells me anything,” he says. He smiles suddenly and begins laughing to himself. “Though, this makes last family game night a lot funnier in context.”You furrow your brow. “You mean with Waldric? Oh. Waldo. Wald… dammit.” You really aren’t good with this crap. “Waldron!” you shout.
>>33260298“And I was thinking he was just nervous about you figuring something out,” Wolfgang continues, grinning in bewilderment. “You’re his contact? You’re the one killing Meckor’s conclave? Oh my life, this is ridiculous. Moriah is going to flip her lid when she finds out.”You’re not sure you want Moriah flipping her lid.Wolfgang catches the look on your face. “Don’t worry about her, her lid will flip in the best way possible as soon as she gets a look at you.”Everything is becoming complicated. (+10 Stress: 25/100)>This is getting kind of crazy. I uh... I'm going to go get some air.>Really? Let’s find her then. I’m all about flipping lids.>Okay, what the hell’s the deal here? Is there something I’m missing?>So just to be clear, you’re a vampire after all, right?>I’m… can I just go back to dancing for a while? Because, I came here to dance.>Other (?)
>>33260322>Okay, what the hell’s the deal here? Is there something I’m missing?

>>33260322>This is getting kind of crazy. I uh... I'm going to go get some air.I don't think a rave is the best place to break the news to Moriah.
>>33260322>So just to be clear, you’re a vampire after all, right?
>>33260322>So just to be clear, you’re a vampire after all, right?"I mean, I drink blood too. I'm not judging you Wolfy, I completely understand that it's the most delicious thing ever.">Really? Let’s find her then. I’m all about flipping lids.
>>33260322>Reslly? Let's find her then. I'm all about flipping lids.
>>33260322>Other (?)I'm just relieved that it's okay to be myself around her and you guys, without hiding. This is the only nigh of the year when I'm just another person.
“Really?” you ask. “Because I’ve been like, toying with the idea of telling her that I’m hellborn ever since I met her.”“Trust me, it’s better that you got to know her first,” says Wolfgang.“Well what the heck are we standing around here for? Let’s go find her!” you say, heading off. This is getting kind of awesome. (-12 Stress: 13/100)“Hey Sierra?” says Wolfgang.You pause momentarily and look back at him. “What?”“Do you know what Moriah’s costume is?” he asks, smiling.“No, why?” Then it hits you. “Oh yeah. I uh. Guess I wouldn’t know what she looks like. C’mon then, you’re holding up the operation!”“Hold your horses there, Speed Racer,” says Wolfgang. “I’ll just text her to meet us outside.” He pulls out his cell and shoots off the text, and the two of you head outside to the rendezvous point.You step outside into the cold night air. There’s a hint of salt on the air – the sea breeze is coming in strong now that the sun’s thoroughly set. Beside a couple dark figures conversing over at the way, the place is pretty deserted. The deep beating of the music sounds faintly from back inside. It’s nice out here. (-2 Stress: 11/100)“So,” you say, breaking the silence, “you really are a vampire then, right? I mean, I drink blood too sometimes, and I totally get that it’s fucking delicious and whatnot.”
>>33261074“TMI, Sierra,” Wolfgang says, making a sickened face. “Well fine, if you’re not a vampire, what the hell’s the deal then?” you ask, feeling giddy. “What’s the missing piece? Like, lay it on me, I’m all for revelations and stuff right now.”A figure in a blue cloak appears at the entryway and comes over toward you and Wolfgang. You can’t really make out any details under the cloak, but it’s fastened with a deep red jewel at the neck, and the hood’s up. The figure speaks in Moriah’s voice. “What happened?” she asks, coming up to Wolfgang.Wolfgang lays an arm around his sister’s shoulders and turns her toward you. “Your friend’s here,” he says.You smile and wave your knife-sharp fingers at Moriah.She flips down her hood, revealing that her Raven costume covers all the little details as well as the big ones. You probably could have guessed she’d dress up as something like this, now that you think about it. “This… is a surprise,” says Moriah, looking at your demon form with wide eyes. >Surprise!>I’m full of surprises.>Well, if you say you’re vampires now, I’m not going to be surprised.>Wait. How are the both of you so sure I wasn’t just wearing a costume?>So, in retrospect, your pentagram shirt does summon demons.>Other (?)
>>33261112>I’m full of surprises.>So, in retrospect, your pentagram shirt does summon demons.
>>33261112>So, in retrospect, your pentagram shirt does summon demons.>Wait. How are the both of you so sure I wasn’t just wearing a costume?

>>33261112>Surprise!Give her a slow spin, show off our awesome tail."Isn't Halloween awesome! The one night a year I can do this without freaking everyone out."
“Surprise!” you say, spinning about to show off your tail and also your sweet horns. “Halloween, man. One night I can like, be myself without freaking anybody out.”Moriah doesn’t say anything for a while. She just stares meaningfully at you, and starts tearing up. “You’re beautiful,” she whispers.That’s probably the most sincere compliment anybody’s ever given you. It’s not just like, about how you look, but you get the feeling she’s talking about you as a person too. You feel like you’re glowing, which you check to make sure you’re not. (-15 Stress: -4/100)Caught off guard by her response, you kind of bumble forward jokingly. “So yeah,” you say. “In retrospect, your pentagram shirt actually does summon demons.”Moriah actually laughs for once, and starts smiling and crying all over the place, and Wolfgang just rubs her shoulder reassuringly. Even he’s getting kind of misty eyed. Wolfgang doesn't strike you as the type to get misty eyed about anything.>What’s wrong?>Just be confused in silence. Somebody’ll say something.>Uh….>Should I go somewhere else or something?>Other (?)
>>33261658>Just be confused in silence. Somebody’ll say something.

So...were we right about Moriah being homo for us?
>>33261658>Other: "Oh jesus, you actually do demon summoning.">And then play a little with some fire tricksMy guess is she is actually doing demonology and we are the perfect specimen.
>>33261658>OtherYou know, I was almost afraid of telling you... I didn't know if you knew about this whole magic stuff, I was worried that you might have hated me because I never told you, worried that your dad had purposly kept you ignorant of this stuff for some reason......I'm really happy I got a friend I can talk to about this...(try not to cry like a bitch. fail.)

>>33261658>Uh….>What’s wrong?Give her a hug? It's more hugs in a day than we're used to, but it seems like what you're supposed to do in this sort of situation.
>>33261727>>33261744fucking anti /u/ sierra
>>33261759We've been over this before, but the general thinking was that Sierra'd notice notice if Moriah was her twin.
>>33261769Fuck being anti /u/, we're going full speed ahead.
>>33261830Sierra by her very nature emits an anti-/u/ aura.
We've just gained another place we can chill with our demon bitz out. Amazing. Hopefully we can have a WoD tabletop game after Star Wars.
>>33261860Apparantly she doesn't, seeing as how it didn't stop Moriah.
>>33261756Fuckin' this.Specially for the Yuri.
>>33261894Moriah uses magic to be immune to it
>>33261903This is not a /u/ quest
no/u/, pls. T-that's lewd.
>>33261903Sorry but Sierra is so straight she shits only in 180 degrees.
Guys, you should really stop the /u/ thing while it is innocent. I mean i don't have much personally against it but i have seen quests being utterly ripped to pieces by this shit in the later stages.Just a small warning. And remember to respect the OP's wishes.
“What’s wrong?” you ask. Did you do something wrong? Man, you screw things up too often.“Nothing, you – you’re great,” says Moriah, beaming through her tears. She breaks Wolfgang’s grip and embraces you tightly, like she’s afraid you’ll blow away. You stiffen reflexively at the contact, and you fight back a panic attack. It’s Moriah. “You’re the best,” she says, burying her face in your shoulder.You are stuck in a very awkward position. On one hand, you hate this and you feel like your skeleton’s going to jump out of your skin. On the other hand, you think Moriah’s going through something really powerful right now, and that she needs to hug you for some weird reason.You must not complain. (+14 Stress: 10/100)>Don’t panic. (Dice: Hard)>Eh heh heh, okay, get off of me now. Get off get off!!>R-remember the thing about the touching thing?

>>33262025>Don’t panic. (Dice: Hard)Return the hug for a little bit while trying not to panic immediately. Then remind Moriah about the touching thing, and gently extricate ourself from her grasp. She'll probably explain this herself once she's calmed down a bit so don't press her, just let her be happy about this.
Rolled 7>>33262025Don't panic
>>33262227Man, the dice gods really want us to hug it out.
I wonder what a critical fail on a resist freakout from hug would look like.I suspect it involves Explosive Flare.
Rolled 35>>33262025>Don't panic>Hug back
>>33262260Probably just loadsastress.
>>33262260Instant 100/100 stress.
>>33262260Maybe if all three rolls are 100s
>>33262260EVERYTHING IS ON FIRE!
>>33262025>"I'm pretty confused right now."
>>33262260It would result in us freaking out, but not terribly.
>>33262325It's ~14 points of explosive damage "like an incendiary grenade". Point blank, that's going to kill a human no matter what. They'd look like Salisbury steak.
>>33262025>Don’t panic. (Dice: Hard)>Hug her back.
>>33262373And people call me autistic...
I wonder if we still get sunburns after getting Fire Resistance. We very well might, which would mean the sun would burn us more than bathing in lit napalm.
>>33262566The sun is just really big really far away fire. Sorta. Not really... Close enough, damnit.
>>33262566Well that's a radiation burn, not a heat burn.
>>33262611Well, fires output a shitton of radiative heat...does Fire Resistance let that through?
>>33262642I should have specified. That's UV radiation, not heat radiation.
>>33262669And that differs from a fire's radiative heat how?It doesn't, but nice try. UV is a matter of wavelength, and I guarantee fire emits UV light.
I think it's just more likely that the one person Moriah could consider a friend doesn't need to be excluded from the 'special' portions of her life, and now she doesn't need to self-censor the supernatural elements. She probably exited for the same reasons we are, but we already had Ro and Harvey. And hell, even the gang we were in. Moriah didn't have anyone outside of her family.
>>33262669>>33262712>>33262642I think we're missing a key point it.Its fookin magic. It ain't gotta explain shit.
>>33262743We will never know, anon. Magic is just too mysterious for the likes of us.
>>33262719I agree with you, but I think it might be more than that too.
>>33262712http://www.physlink.com/education/askexperts/ae664.cfmIt doesn't seem to be the same at all.>>33262743Do you want us arguing over physics our /u/bats?
>>33262795The physical effect of /u/boats
>>33262795My mistake, I've made the error of mixing up UV and IR in my head again.Thanks for the correction.
>>33262858They get me physically hard.
>>33262873If there's one thing Utsuho knows about, it's radiation.
Wait wait, has anyone archived this thread? as in 33 part 2?
>>33263025It's not over yet. Let Languid do it, it's his quest and the title/description is his prerogative.
>>33263046I'm used to anons doing for qm's most of the time to be honest ha.
The next part is relevant to my interests.
Languid is killLets chat about lesbians and physics
>>33263157I hear some people have decided to change QM interpretation lately. There's a real life analog that explains wave/particle duality more intuitively.
>>33263157False dendrite quest isn't running for a while though.
>>33263157All this talk of lesbians reminds me that Gobble's pokemon quest has been dead for quite some time now.
>>33263157Yes, or get >>33258071to speak again. Or even discuss the scenario of niggers returning again.
>>33263223I saw a nigger the other day, horrible creatures.
>>33263157There's a new phase of matter that no one without at least a Master's in physics will know about.http://www.iflscience.com/physics/new-state-matter-discovered
>>33263297This is awesome.
>>33263419Glad you enjoyed it, maybe one day you'll win Jeopardy by asking Alex, "What is a dropleton?"Have a picture from my home state.
>>33263591Ohh yeah. I'm hype.
>>33263639Here's the QM article.http://www.wired.com/2014/06/the-new-quantum-reality/
>>33263223B-but I'm tired.
>>33262025I refuse to go to sleep before the next entry.Please let there be one more this thread
I'm starting to suspect that he expected us to fail the freakout check and is trying to decide whether he can pull off claiming that the DC was totally lower than 4 or if he needs to toss all the stuff he had planned to do.
>>33263812i just woke up after falling asleep when laguid vanished last thread, so i want this one to keep going
Probably a lot of writing and re-writing going on.
>>33263856Or maybe we can expect a really long entry
>>33263856If we were meant to fail, then he'd have just called for more subsequent checks every turn to not freak out.
inb4 she's in some way related to us
Sorry, today is just one of those days.
>>33263923Son of a bitch. She's Nevada.
>>33263950She looks nothing like us dude. We discussed this already.
>>33263972well she did die a few years back, who can blame her?
>>33263941Nice to see you're still alive at least. Keep up the good work, I believe in you!>>33263923Wouldn't Sierra immediately recognize her twin sister?
>>33263950>She looks nothing like us>That means she must be our twin sister!You people must be fucking with us at this point. nobody is this thick.
>>33263990Wrongzo. The fortune telling session was vague as shit, but it did say for sure that Nevada is alive and when we see her again shit is going to go down somehow.
>>33263923>she keeps crying and holding us.>fingers tighten painfully around our shoulders>it's Nevada and she's one of Meckor's lieutenants>"Let me go! I must kill the demons!">"No Sierra, you are the demons">and then Sierra was a queen.
>>33264018That whole vague as shit part was in no way certain she was alive, in fact I interpreted it to mean she was dead and I'm sure I'm not the only one who read it that way. besides as many others have said she looks nothing like us and while we may not have been identical twins I really doubt we are related to her or the crowthers
>>33264142They are identical twins...
>>33264156and thus the Moriah twin theory has been magnificently shot down. thank you sir
>>33264183Glamour spells. Magic.
>>33263213I just realized that the other day. I got really depressed. I really liked that quest.
>>33264447does anyone know what happened to him? supposedly they said he talked about it on his twitter but I don't have the link to that either.
>>33264508Lots of quests are going on haitus right now. QM's gotta rake in that sweet, warm summer cash. They're be back once their wallets are nice and full. Probably.
>>33264508No idea. I just realized I hadn't caught his thread in a really long time and checked the archive. I might have to brave QTG and ask around.
You stiffen up, but you buck up and power your way through. You rigidly bring your hands up and weakly kind of simulate returning the hug, though it’s just about all you can do to endure without freaking out. If she wanted a hug so bad, maybe she could have like, asked or something and you would have given her one – this isn’t a two way street. (+6 Stress: 16/100)You’re really confused as to what’s going on, and eventually manage to kind of wheedle your way out in a way that’s not offensive or unnatural. Well, more than the usual level of unnatural, coming from you. “What’s going on?” you ask, confused. You pull back enough to get a look at Moriah’s face. Her makeup’s streaking down her face with the tears. “I’m sorry, I just – I had to,” she says, stepping away so as to not be in your personal safety bubble. “I’ve just never… I never thought I’d have a real friend,” she says, smiling. “And then you’re… you’re not just my best friend, but you’re… like me.”You frown. “I’m like you? Like. What are you talking about?”Moriah smiles. “I’m a demon too, Sierra.”And then she flickers. The skin on her face fades and disappears completely, as does the muscle beneath it. You’re face to face with gaunt, skull-like face that resembles Moriah, though only in traces. She still has her hair, but a notable addition is that she’s got horns. Two pointy, thin straight horns that jut right out of her forehead and straight up about a foot.
>>33264615Her eyes are recessed in dark flesh, deep within the sockets; though they retain the same look that you’ve grown accustomed to since you’ve known her. Her nose is gone, and the where it would have been is just and empty hole, which turns into a split in the bone that continues down to the top of her mouth. Her teeth are razor sharp, and her bony jaw is split in the middle into independent mouth-part mandible kinds of things. Sinewy cords of skinless muscle holds her mouth together, and the same kind of flesh composes her exposed neck, which is thinner than it was with the illusion in place.Her look reminds you of a fluffy cat after you douse it with water. Skeletal and thinner than natural.Her jaw mandible things shift slightly when she speaks, and you you can see flashes of the inside of her mouth and teeth in a way that’s completely alien to you. That’s just not how humans talk. “I’m a hellion,” she says, a gravelly, watery quality to her voice that you’ve never heard before. “That’s… different,” you say, still shocked by her sudden metamorphosis.Wolfgang grins. “We’re both hellions,” he says.--End Part 33--
>>33264635>Wolfgang grins. “We’re both hellions,” he says.Oh shit. Looks like Papa C is adventurous with the Dick.
>>33264635Thanks for your time, man.
>>33264635>Wolfgang grins. “We’re both hellions,” he says.I'm, err... Infernus-Belphegoran-Verwelken-Landmaster.
Next thread Wednesday, 2:00 PM MST. Unless I cancel, which I will say will be about 50% likely.I will say stuff on Twitter.
>>33264667So, their daddy was actually the BBEG all along?
>>33264635Ok. So Hellions are like mage demons, right?Anyway, I'm having a bit of trouble picturing what exactly they look like. I'm thinking something like The Mummy with some sort of alien bug mouthparts?
>>33264694Thanks for running.
>>33264690Don't forget dovahkiin. Because at this point. Why not?
>>33264635>“We’re both hellions,” he says.Just like fucking Meckor...
>>33264741Meckor is Infernus-Hellion.And come on, man. Just 'cause they're hellions doesn't mean anything. Trevon was infernus. Cordeliate and Cpt. Sparklepants were/are belphegoran. The thing that killed Rowan's grandpa was verwelken.
>>33264705don't think so think there dad is the human and the mother was the deamon also explanes why he was ok with waldo hanging out
>>33264710In my mind they look like horned Turians from Mass Effect, maybe crossed with Predator.
>>33264635Thanks for running, now I can finally slumber
I find it interesting that Wolfgang was still all grossed out by the blood drinking thing despite the fact that he looks like a predator corpse.
>>33264897I find it hilarious that there is still some shit we might not want to talk to Moriah about, like our involvement with gang violence and our occasional murdering.You know how sometimes on a show a character will wake up on a roof or in an alley next to an empty bottle and no memory of how they got there? Well, one time I woke up on a roof next to a corpse with no memory of how I got there.
>>33264635" Oh man, you look way more metal than me " say slightly disappointed
>>33264976I blame Tweedy. He coulda just not been an asshole about things.
>>33264635If when we have kids with Wolfgang, and assuming they don't explode from being Landmaster Infernus-Belphegoran-Verwelken-Hellion hybrids, they will be both sincerely freaky looking with their demonic traits out, and likely powerful as all fuck. And I bet Wolfgang's blood tastes like magic, which makes him an even better husbando than before.I wonder if the hint of "waterfall" we smelled when we first met him was from him being a Hellion. I'm guessing Papa C isn't a Hellion, though he could just be really good at hiding it instead of being a mortal magician.
>>33265074I want Papa C to be a human. It would make him all the more impressive.
I think Moriah is pretty innocent for being a demon, judging how she reacted to Beatrice and her cronies. Imagine all the questions we're going to ask Moriah about being a demon, and how she'll react when she learns about the more extreme stuff we've done.Or she might look up to us and think we're soooo cool because we've actually been out and doing real demon things, like rampages and killing but on the side of the good guys.
>>33258071Christ that's hilarious.>Fuck really finishes it.Or maybe that's the exact reason why it's funny?
>>33265147I think a lot of it is probably that Hellions don't seem to have the inborn rage problems like Inferni do. Combo that with not being an orphan bounced around foster care..
>>33265074>Reject Moriah's love>Get it on with her brotherI thought we were trying to not play an evil character?
>>33265201We're playing a character who identifies as a heterosexual and is confident in her sexuality.
>>33264635So I remember you said that Moriah had the normal human HP. Same with Wolfgang.Was this because mage class low HP as far as demons go or is it because their spells hid em good like how Tweedy did or what?
>>33265201We're not even sure she's in lesbians with us. She might be, but we're pretty much her only friend, and she just found out she doesn't have to hide what she is from us, it's not surprising that she got emotional over this even without taking any potential lesbosity into account.Also, Sierra isn't a lesbian and Wolfgang is totally hot. I think Moriah will understand, and be alright with us as a sister-in-law and best friend. Besides, this just means we can set her up with Rowan.
>>33265314>Besides, this just means we can set her up with Rowan.I was about to say "imagine what their kids would look like..." but then I felt retarded.
>>33265190Shy bookish nerd with anti-social behavior and self-esteem issues befriends traumatized delinquent with anger-control issues and a history of violence.
>>33265335Magic might be able to solve that problem, and Hellions are supposed to be really good at magic.
Moriah probably has a massive PP reserve.I want to see it.
>>33264635But we're not a demon, we're hellborn, part demon.Also hellion faces are kind of freaky.Also they seem like nice people but damn.I love you, Languid even if Sierra didn't smooch with Wolfgang.
>>33265398I think a lot of people just refer to hellborns as demons.
>>33265367 inb4 Rowan is asexual
>>33265420th-that's because they're prejudiced against hell!
>>33265420>>33265441Well, that goblin did call us demon but they might not know better.Anyway, we'll know on weekend. Implying there's going to be a game on Wednesday.Cool development though. We'd need some drawfag to picture us a hellion, maybe? I'm megas confused how they look except for skull-face with weird jaw-thing.
>>33264994I blame the players.
>>33265478I was thinking about doing one, but I don't even on this. I'm just going to wait and hope Languid does one of his little pic things like he's been making for Sierra.
>>33265478>might not know better.Maybe, but I think it's way more likely that it's a one-drop type deal going on. I mean, yeah, you could call a half black half white kid mulatto, but most people will just call em black.
>>33265497I'd totally do it if I had more skill. Maybe in a year.Laguid should totally do that tiny pic thing for Moriah, yeah.
>>33265478Only with more darkness and less fire.
>>33265706And this is what I imagine mother dearest looked like when she was glamored.
>>33264635>tfw when you've been avoiding your friend, because she's super awesome and you've been lying to her and keeping something secret>tfw when you get dragged to a party by your older brother in the midst of that>tfw when you get a text from your bro saying to meet him in the lot, it's super important.>...tfw when you find that one of your best friends in the whole world just so happens to have the same secret as you.
>>33265806Word. These last handful of threads have been a feels train, man
I don't think the Hallows know that Magister's whole family is demons. How would Isaac think of that?
>>33266498He'd probably try to fucking adopt them our something.
>>33267401Adopting Papa Crowther.That would be weird as fuck.
>>33267473Well, you know Old Man Hallow. All crazy paternal about hell-things. Adopting demonic murderers straight off the street just to start.
Yuropoor at work here. I'm not disappointed in the lack of makeouts.
>>33267822Well, maybe we'll kiss some skull on Wednesday.
>>33265706They had those split jaws though, didn't they?
>>33269026Basically, start with a naked skull.Add two short, straight horns.Sharpen the teeth.Split the jaw into two separate bones, instead of one.And add in raw sinew holding it all together.That's a hellion.I assume the rest of their bodies also tend to feature naked bone being held together with raw sinew/muscle, but that's just an assumption.
>>33265201It's been established repeatedly that Sierra does not pack tacos or clean pearls. She deals strictly with woodwork.>>33265314>Wolfgang is totally hotMuh fucking nugguh right here. Wolfgang Superior, all other husbandos inferior.
>>33269087Only one way to find out.
I'm betting Papa Crow was a loyalist to our mother
>>33272956Okay two ways.
>>33273229Look it up in a demonology textbook?
