cont: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/33412719/You're Emeline, a miner child and ace squirrel hunter. Last night, a bald man almost stole your wishing coins from the park's fountain. You forgot his strangeness when he saved you from the Orphan Patrol and adopted you. Most other adults skipped you because you smelled like squirrel stew. Still, it all feels a bit rushed.You were reminded of his strangeness when he started biting a metal drone squirrel and let it go. His wife gave you a blanket, a shower, and let you sleep in the guest room. You like her, but wonder if she was only nice because she was drunk. She left in the morning after leaving you a note to eat some cereal. 405 left soon after in work uniform.This morning, you see a TV in the living room. It's smaller than the ones they had in the orphan mines.
Put "quest" in your goddamn name or subject field.
>>33459420Continue to pout about the TV.
>>33459470Oh Christ, I realized that I forgot. Have free art in forgiveness.
>>33459502You pout at the powerless TV. It only brings up memories of mining. And squirrels.
>>33459557Snoop around the house.
>>33459596These people are almost poorer than an orphan miner.
>>33459666Preoccupy your child mind. Surely this can't be too hard.
>>33459557Ascend to a higher plane of existance
>>33459711The attempt ends in frustration.>>33459680You try to relieve the tension by playing a popular game in the mines, "Beat the Shit Out of the Snitch."
>>33459790Lie on the floor and wait for something interesting to happen.
>Get adopted>Life actually becomes WORSE than forced slave labor under the earthHaha oh wow.Do we have a key to the apartment yet? If we do, let's go somewhere.
>>33459790Dream of electric sheep
>>33459856The mention of great Sci-Fi novels immerses you in the game.>>33459851MAYBE THE KEY IS IN ROTGER'S CORPSE."Huh, Rotger! You think it was a good idea to tell on the ration hoarding? HUH!? How bout we bury you with tomorrow's squirrel?"
>>33459934Lose yourself to animal instincts.
>>33459934Damn. We just destroyed our only pillow.We're not getting another one.Weep over it's corpse.
>>33459934Look outside, maybe there's other kids to hunt.
>>33459970THE ORPHAN WHO WEEPS GETS A BACKHAND SWEEP>>33459962You start shoving the pillow's innards into your mouth and let out a muffled war cry.You still remember the day you were banned from playing with the others.
>>33460043Look for fresh prey
>>33460043I WANT TO GET OFF THIS RIDE MISTER
>>33460043search for cereal and use it to spice up the pillow
>>33460170Silly, you don't eat pillows!>>33460080Cereal counts, right? Coincidentally, Rotger was beaten up because he tattled on your gang leader hiding cereal. You personally bit off his ear.You open a box of Suino Synthetic Cereal and chow down.
>>33460268Continue finding sources of sustenance in the house.
>>33460268The shirt is displeased.Quick! We must find something fun to appease it!
>>33460344Hmm? Oh yeah, Prelestny Fashion t-shirts have AIs in them. You heard about that from a smuggler. Weird.
>>33460440Try rubbing it?
>>33460440>our new AI companionAsk it's name
>>33460485"Hello, what's your name?"It doesn't answer.>>33460469Is it broken? You try biting it.
>>33460511well, what does it taste like?
>>33460511It seems unhappy. Ask it if it wants to go for a walk.
>>33460545Distinctly, a pancake... but it doesn't taste moldy like the ones you ate before.
I still love you, OP
>>33460612One love, bro.>>33460591"Would you like to go for a walk?"Surprisingly, it answers. "No."
>>33460595Search the house for technical manuals. If we learn enough, we will be able to translate our shirt's thoughts.
>>33460642Force it to cooperate with you by threatening to cut it out with a kitchen knife
>>33460642"Would you like to read a book, then?"
>>33460665You grab an orange peeling knife, courtesy of Sturbridge Weaponry.>>33460676"No."You just about had with this shirt's shit. You consider setting the TV on fire and smashing it on him.
>>33460752Cut the face off, in front of all the other shirts.
>>33460752No OP, you picked up a toothbrush.
>>33460752Tell him you're going to wash him in bleach and razorblades
C'mon guys, thats not how you socialize. You have to appeal to it's tastes."What do you wanna do, then?" is a pretty good starter.
>>33460785*Toothbrush Orange Peeler Combo Deal>>33460838"Well, what do you want to do?""Feel comfortable.">>33460802>>33460772As you threaten the shirt for no reason in particular, the door slams open. It's 405, your legal guardian."OH FUCK, KIDS GO TO SCHOOL, RIGHT?"
>>33460863>school?prepare to escape
>>33460863D-dad?DEPLOY CUTE UGUU~ LOLI EYES
>>33460863Scamper away as fast as you can.
>>33460863Probably? One would assume that there were public schools for you to go to, but this is CAPITALISM STRONK land, so who knows?
>>33460863>the door slams open. It's 405, your legal guardian.>"OH FUCK, KIDS GO TO SCHOOL, RIGHT?"Oh god I fucking lost it
>>33460952The mine's rumors said there were two parts to school: The free trial, which was mostly stuff about how great the CCCP is and Accounting 1, and then it's micro-payments or a subscription-based model.>>33460903>>33460928You hide under the table."Come on, Emeline, you gotta go! Get in my briefcase!"
>>33461049>Get in my briefcase!What
Please include the word "quest" in your thread subject in the future, so that it is easier to filter.Thanks in advance.
>>33461069I just forgot this time. I'll be sure to be extra careful.>>33461085Bawl?What a peculiar and COMMIE thought. The great Commercissar Stanislav does not bawl. He bowls. HEADS. COMMIE HEADS.
>>33461132goddammit.Also, stop the BTR
>>33461132Remember where you're driving too.
>>33461132Become intensely worried that two of our close employees have been outed as Commie spies recently.
I'm wondering.Who's the commies?
>>33461225What nonsense you think! As if someone could be arrested this morning while you were driving.>>33461281Why, NATO, of course! The National Armed Territories of the Obliged. It's spearheaded by the Union of Socialist America, the cowards!>>33461177>>33461256Commie tanks? No, you're being mugged by the underground terrorist group, the Fascist Resistance.
>>33461320SPEAK ALL THE GERMAN YOU KNOWLIKE SAUERKRAUT
>>33461320Transform and roll out.Surely your status as Commercissar means your car comes with some perks.
>>33461320Violently open our car door. Disregard their weapons.We are the GIGA-NIGGA, and their tiny fascism will not impede us.
>>33461352The weapon you need is Lady Capitalism and her fists!>>33461351>>33461354"SCHNELL THIS YOU FASCIST BASTARDS!"You grab both of their heads as they scream incoherent Polish.
>>33461465Crack their heads together! Make a merry tune!
I wouldn't be surprised if the Commercissar had a poster of a pin-up model "Miss Capitalism" in his room
>>33461465Beat the fascist out of them and turn them into productive members of society.
>>33461465Throw them into a brick wall, hard enough to smash a hole in it.
>>33461515You're in the market for one, but this isn't Pin-Up Time! It's Fascist Terrorism Time.>>33461500>>33461519"SIEG HEIL THIS MOMENTARY BANKING SYSTEM, ANTI-SEMITES!"You band their heads together, and they fall to a heap.They're unconscious. But you don't have time to wait for CCCP police.
>>33461515would it be legal tho?
>>33461614so.... what were you doing?
>>33461614Return to your car. There's no time to waste! For whatever you're doing!
>>33461659You throw the fascists in the back of the truck with the other knocked out ones.>>33461658Going to give a free speech about capitalism to schoolchildren.
>>33461725Bust the door down. The children must learn to respect power.
>>33461725Go in through the wall.Gotta impress the kids
>>33461725I hope our speech isn't written down.>>33461763>>33461762Nah, DYNAMIC ENTRY through a window. Can we see which classroom it is from the outside? An auditorium?
>>33461725 You say this speech is free, so does he normally charge the kids for it? That would be a true lesson in capitalism.
>>33461763>>33461762You do both!>>33461790You fool! Capitalism is investment."I'M HERE TO INVEST IN CHILDREN FUTURES!">>33461786Ah yes, reading. You burned that CCCP-issued speech long ago. Looks like you'll wing it.
>>33461833They're real impressed now.Make a snap ad for Prelestny before continuing.
>>33461833Strike fear into their hearts.
>>33461962>>33461889"Prelestny Fashion: COVER YOUR DISGUSTING BODIES WITH THE FUTURE!" you shout. "Respect your elders!" you add.All the students cower. All except for one. A brown-haired girl.
>>33461833I hope you're willing to pay for the repairs.
>>33461975YOU! BRAVE TINY GIRL, COME UP HERE. YOU WILL AID ME IN MY SPEECH.
>>33461975>those solid black eyes>that blank stareIs that... Rena?
>>33461975Teach this girl what happens to people who stand up to powerful authority figures who aren't capitalists.
>>33461975She doesn't fear! This means two things: or she is future spy or she is a future Commersiar. Either way, INTENSE STARING CONTEST. Winner takes all!
>>33461978Insurance! >>33461975Hey, watch it. We all know uneducated peeps always dream of going to school.
>>33461998>>33462020>>33462025You call the child up."THIS CHILD WILL RULE OVER YOUR WORTHLESS LIVES ONE DAY."
>>33462106Make glorious statements, FOR CAPITALISM, and go far beyond your allotted time.
>>33462131You are Emeline. This strange man is bigger than anyone you seen in the Orphan Patrol. He tells you, "Now, how about this tiny girl tell you a glorious speech?"The class meekly nods.
>>33462172Dance your emotions.
>>33462172whisper to your AI underneath your uniform for advice.Preferably get it to do it for you.
>>33462214"AI, speech," you whisper.>>33462214"Over-shirt: Compatible!Task: Extend and flap left arm.Task: Complete!" the AI chirps loudly.This counts as dancing, right?The big man looks confused.
>>33462265Start barking orders at the other students like a drill sargent.
>>33462265Today, we are going to MAKE SOME MONEY!
>>33462301>>33462349Your experience as second-in-command of an underground orphan gang comes in handy."Money is pretty alright, clients!" you screech.As you open your mouth to speak some more, however, you feel pillow innards stuck in your throat.
>>33462371Regurgitate the innards. Show them the lengths you will go to for PROFIT.
>>33462401No. Vomit is for the weak! Swallow that shit.And then, we will vow to do the most capitalist thing we can think of--destroy our competition!
>>33462422You... can't... "HACK!""You children are all pathetic!" shouts the big man. "To show you true fear, I also came here to take a protege Commercissar. AND THIS PUKING CHILD SHALL BE THE CHOICE."
>>33462511Did...did we just get DOUBLE ADOPTED?Damn nigga things are looking up.
>>33462511Ask him how much money you'll make.
>>33462511This is a strange, scary man.On the plus side, he's apparently going to give you a position of power. In the future, you'll have the opportunity to improve the lives of the nation's workers. That's something to look forward to.
>>33462593Power? Like, over everyone? With no stabbing involved?>>33462542"Unpaid mandatory internship, child! I will pick you up some days after-school and show you how to lead fools and terrify the hearts of the weak!"He hands you a badge.Looks like the end of Part 7, kids!
>>33462677Great thread OP! The art and humor's great, you're a pretty cool guy.When are you thinking of running again?
>>33462746Aw, thanks! I usually aim for starting somewhere between 10:30 to 12pm EDT. But with how crazy the internet is around here, weird work schedule, and school coming up, I don't know what the future scheduling holds. Perhaps a less fast-paced forum or webcomic format?Basically, ideally around 11pm tomorrow night, if the internet doesn't die out again.
>>33462799You could look into doing this on anonkun if scheduling gets hard later. It's a decent alternative to here.
>>33462920Oh my god, I didn't even know something like this existed. It seems pretty good. Thanks, bro, I'll keep it in my sights if it ever comes to that.Good night, ladies and gents!
>>33462677>unpaid>mandatoryThat doesn't sound very capitalistic.
>>33462957You could also try here, if you want.http://tgchan.org/It's a lot like this board, but much slower-paced. It's good for quest threads.
