However, no sooner have you done that when you're approached by a mysterious Umbrella scientist who was asking questions about Cole."...excuse me?" You blink."That girl..." The scientist frowns and puts a hand to her chin, as if trying to recall a distant memory. "I could swear I've seen her somewhere before...."You know, you've never actually known much about Cole's past, mostly because she didn't really know herself, other than scraping by in the Tombs. Maybe this was the chance to find out.Then again, maybe somethings were better left unknown. Maybe this scientist had ulterior motives."Oh, how rude of me!" The scientist's expression lightens and shakes your hand. "My name is Dr. Vahlen, Chief Researcher for the Umbrella Corporation.""The Producer for Clover Entertainment." You return the courtesy."Now, back to business..." Vahlen's eyes fall on Cole once again. "That girl... who exactly is she?">Tell her the truth about Cole.>Lie>Try to get more information out of Vahlen.>Other
>>33853757Truth. We found her and invested a lot in her.
>>33853757>"An Idol of Clover Entertainment" >>Try to get more information out of Vahlen.
>>33853757>>Try to get more information out of Vahlen.
>>33853757> "She's one of my top idols. If you would like to see her shows or merchandise then feel free to visit our website."
>>33853757>>Try to get more information out of Vahlen.Let's be honest here, Vahlen: Is Umbrella Corp a shell corporation for the XCOM Project to have a public face?
>>33853816This. We aren't telling her shit.
>>33853757>Tell her the truth about Cole.>OtherBUT ONLY the condensed version. If she want to have more access to her, they need to sponsor us.Also ask, Just why is she here in the first place?
I don’t think we can trust them at the moment, they could say anything about her because we don’t have info (i.e. She was ours to begin with, we just want to realize her true potential, etc.). For all we know, Cole’s made by a rival company and Umbrella wants to reverse engineer an army of inferior clones. If we want to know about her it has to come from her own mouth, not from someone else. And besides, she experienced something so horrible that she was afraid of losing her powers for a second. I’m not sure if we should hand her over to someone we barely know.
>>33853757>Try to get more information out of Vahlen.>>33853861we are not telling her anything
>>33853757>Try to get more information out of Vahlen.
>>33853757Try to get more information out of Vahlen
>>33853861Ah, I was wondering when you'd come by with bad ideas.Okay, so, first off last thread suggested that there is some bad things going on with Umbrella concerning the thirty year old idol and the message she gave us that we haven't read yet. Second, she's here because Umbrella Corp is here. Third, Cole was abandoned in the roughest part of town with shady biological augments: I doubt she got lost on a field trip.So, yeah, I'm going to be VERY cagey about what information we give about our best daughteru.
>>33853929Agreed, but she did ask nicely though."Who exactly is she?""She's Cole, an Idol of Clover Entertainment."That's it nothing else.
>>33853929I'm been thinking how to best defend Cole against umbrella. We should name drop handsome jack to deterrent them.
>>33853929And here is the hater. Look, if we start ACTING cagey around the Umbrella rep, they are likely going to start to think that their Idol as successfully passed intelligence off to us. Sure we're not going to accept their offer but we shouldn't clam up right off the bat.
>>33854032Dear god, that's right. Hansome Jack would be a great foil against Umbrella wouldn't it?
>>33854032And handsome jack cares more for money than anything else. If umbrella offers a business deal to drop sponsorship of us, they just might take it.
>>33854080>>33854107Wait, does jack have a super-powered daughter in this world?
>>33854107That depends if Umbrella screwed with him in the past. But we're speculating now.
>>33854107Also, jack is more about power and delusion than about money.
>>33853757"Well, that would be Cole, one of our top performing idols." You say. Technically, you WERE answering her question, even if you were excise some very important bits. "She's very pretty, but also has a very prickly and confrontational personality, which is actually most her charm. HIGHLY popular with teenage delinquents.""I see." Vahlen nods, clearly disappointed she didn't get the answers she wanted, but she knew she couldn't really press for more without giving away her intentions. "She looks to be a fine girl."You look over at where Cole currently was, ogling a chocolate fountain. Oh, this was going to be good. You surreptitiously tune into her audio feed."Holy hit, Roch, WHAT DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THESE THINGS EXISTED?!""What things...?" Rochelle blinked."It's a fountain! BUT WITH CHOCOLATE INSTEAD OF WATER!""It's not really that amazing-""IT TOTALLY FUCKING IS!" Cole grabs Rochelle's shoulder and shakes her around to hammer home her point. "Why don't we have one of these at the office? I'm totally going to take this home!""That would be stealing..." Rin joined in, obviously amused by Cole's amazement."Hey, I stole shit all the time in the Tombs and nobody complained." Cole shrugged."That's because the concept of 'laws' don't even exist in the Tombs!" Rochelle hissed. "How are you even going to take it without all these guards noticing?""Eh, I'll wing it.""You know, Cole is rather good at that." Rin nods."You're not helping!" Rochelle sighs."Guys, I'm gonna lick it." Cole says, leaning closer to the fountain."Cole, you're supposed to get one of those snacks over there and stick in the fountain." Rochelle grabbed Cole's shoulder."You're not gonna stop me!" Cole slaps Rochelle's hand away."It's dangerous! You know how hot melted chocolate is?""Not to mention unsanitary." Rin adds in."Thank you, Rin." Rochelle nods. "See? Even she agrees with me-""AUGH!""I FUCKING WARNED YOU, COLE!"(cont)
>>33854251"She's certainly very lively." Vahlen chuckles."That she is." You nod and turn back to her. "Actually, Dr. Vahlen, what exactly do you do at Umbrella?""Ah, well, I oversee most of Umbrella's research projects." Vahlen says, her inner scientist starting to show. "All of the usual things, like new pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, the latest cosmetic products, and most recently, genemodding.">Ask her more about genemods.>Ask her what she REALLY does.>Ask her why she's interested in Cole.>Other

>>33854268>OtherLet's speak later on a secure channel. Here's my card so we can set this up.
>>33854048>hater>>>/mlp/alternatively, kill yourself.
>>33854268>GenemoddingAnd that right there is why I love you, you crazy nagging gal.>Ask her more about genemods.

>>33854251Now we know what we're getting Cole for her birthday.
>>33854268>>Ask her more about genemods.
>>33854268>Ask her more about genemods.Keep it at a professional level; we're interested in genemods for augmenting our combat idols, and a passing interest because we're ex-military.
>>33854268>>Ask her more about genemods.>>Ask her why she's interested in Cole.
>>33854412We do? our combat idols seem to be doing fine on their own, I don't see the need to genemod them.Unless that is the excuse we're doing to tell her stuff
>>33854482Professional interest. And later get more info from sales force for further interest.
>>33854482>Unless that is the excuse we're doing to tell her stuffYes, it's just our excuse.And who know's, if there's something nice coming down the pipe, maybe we'll consider buying it, or if one of our idols wants one.
>>33854362>>33854373I think she might be disappointed at the fact it doesn't continuously make chocolate. I think that is what she's thinking, a never ending chocolate supply.But seriously I hope no jealous performance idol challenges her to a sing off when she has a burnt tongue
>>33854515I can see that, but equipping gene mods from umbrella strikes me as a bad idea. We really don't want our Idols or ourselves to be turned into zombies or some sort of abomination when exposed to a key chemical or virus that umbrella can use against us or blackmail us with.
>>33854268"Really?" You nod. "You know, I've been a bit curious about genemodding, myself. How exactly is it different from augmetics?"You nod over to the the Cyberdyne delegation, who are showing off one of their latest combat cyborgs touched up to look like an idol."Well," Vahlen goes into full scientist mode, "genemods have an array of advantages over augmetics. First of all, they are far less invasive, and work WITH the body instead of completely replacing it. In the long run, genemods will actually cost less than augmetics, because your body does all of the maintenance itself, while augmetics require regular maintenance and inspection by trained professionals. Also, ease of use. Genemods only require an injection or a series of injections in order to take effect.""I see." You nod. "But aren't the only genemods around purely cosmetic?""Well, yes. But we DO have 'performance boosting' genemods in the works." Vahlen says proudly. "Imagine if humans had hyper efficient immune systems that made them immune all forms of disease, or had accelerated healing that could close wounds instantly, or even have superhuman strength and toughness! The possibilities are endless!">That sounds great.>When can we expect to see those on the market?>There has to be some kind of drawback.>Other
>>33854515Eh, Kind of hesitant on the idea of genemodding our idols but if they want to do it sure. >>33854550Maybe, but I do want our idols consent and if its sage
>>33854605>That sounds great.> But... there has to be some kind of drawback. What does (insert authority on medicine) have to say about it?
>>33854605>There has to be some kind of drawback.
>>33854605>>That sounds great.>>There has to be some kind of drawback.
>>33854614I don't really want to gene mod any of the girls. However, we do have Cole, who is already gene modded, so I want to see what information we can sneak without leaking anything about Cole.
>>33854605>That sounds great.>There has to be some kind of drawback.I sure there's no such thing as a free lunch so any cons to genemoddingThen>When can we expect to see those on the market?
>>33854605>>That sounds great.>>When can we expect to see those on the market?>>There has to be some kind of drawback.

>>33854605>That sounds great.Then>There has to be some kind of drawback.and>OtherAre there any other groups creating genemods as well? If so, how does umbrella match up with them?
>>33854605>That sounds great.Vahlen may be crazy, but she's that odd breed of good crazy.>>33854412Do you think Shen's roaming the Expo Floor, too? Maybe we could have a chat with both of them over the pros and cons of gene mods versus agumetics.And maybe broker out a deal to get some bleeding edge Beam Weaponry in return for doing a mission or three. Thin Mint Asset Recovery, anyone?
>>33854605>>There has to be some kind of drawback.
Hey guys, when this whole expo is over, do you think we can do a "Space Walk"?Oddly enough in this whole cyberpunk quest, we've had few actual bodysuits....Perhaps it's because of a lack of pockets...
>>33854692"Thin Mint" Asset Recovery?
>>33854605>When can we expect to see those on the market?>There has to be some kind of drawback.
>>33854727SPEAKING OF WHICH, why is the space elevator set up near... Delta City, is it? Isn't it too far from the equator to be safe and reliable?
Here's another idea:Take a sponsorship from umbrella. Control the terms they have access to Cole
>>33854727I don't think that bodysuits seem to be a good idea.Just imagine P-san looking at Jenner.>Don'tlookatJenner x3, CRAP!>Thinkofsomething Cold like Lilith...>You're a soldier, be disciplined!>imagining Captain with a riding crop
Rolled 20>>33854799Just the idea of giving them access to cole makes me say no
>>33854751Fun nickname given to Thin Men, aka Mr. "I will one-shot your poor Rookies with impunity from halfway across the map while in full cover while you try to move some poor politician across an alley of death." Very deadly, very annoying, and very satisfying to rip apart in the late game.
So is Cole essentially the One and ONLY combat capable genemodded person in the world?If so, this can be a proprietary advantage.
>>33854799Until we have an idea what that message from whatsherface's friend is, I'd rather Umbrella not have any access. If the message is benign, then maybe we could look into it. If they're creating BOWs out of cannibalistic idols, then I think we should keep Cole away from them.>>33854850Why not call them Thin Men, then? And they're not THAT bad: you can tear them apart when they first show up. The idea of Cyberpunk Girl Scouts sounds more interesting.
>>33854823>>33854831Nevermind. I guess the counter to one asshole is an another more powerful asshole.
>>33854875It could just be that she was the first--a prototype for proper combat genemods that don't revolve around simply boosting existing bodily systems.To put it in Bioshock terms--she's the guinea pig for Plasmid development, while every gene mod made up to this point has been a Tonic.
>>33854605"But... there has to be drawback, right?" You ask. "No offense, but as an army veteran, I learned not to take everything at face value. Everything's got weaknesses.""I suppose there is." Vahlen sighed. "You see, militaries and PMCs all over the world are interested in genemods as well, but there's one critical flaw we've yet to overcome that prevents further investment.""And that would be?""Well, we haven't figured out a way to make genemods permanent." Vahlen shakes her head. "The current genemods on the market and those being researched right now, can only give temporary benefits. Without regular doses, the effects will eventually wear off after about 72 hours or so.""Or, you DO have a permanent solution, but you're just keeping it secret so you can nickel and dime everybody." You point out."Producer, I'm a scientist, not a businessman. I am above that sort of thing!" Vahlen huffs. "If only-"She then pauses. You can tell she just caught herself about to say something she shouldn't have.>If only what?>So what's your interest in Cole?>So what makes Belle so special?>Well, I better be going now.>Other

>>33854985>If only what?>So what makes Belle so special?
Total dickass route: probe Cole's memories like we did with the idol killer and find out her past.
>>33854985>So what makes Belle so special?Don't bring up Cole again: we actually just got some REALLY good information.
>>33854985>>If only what?We need to know.
>>33854985>If only what?Let's stay away from both Cole and Belle if we can help it.
>>33855060your not very smart are you she does not have a cyberbrain
>>33855077It's tempting, but I think backing off would be the better idea for now: she might get spooked and not share anything else. If we shift topics to something a little less volatile, she might appreciate it and share contact information so we can try plying her secrets later.
Another idea:Work with her to determine Cole's origin. Maybe jack might be experimenting on generous.

>>33855937I'm not even trying to get him laid, I just want to see what happens. Besides, "charm" doesn't necessarily mean "drag her into a broom closet for ten minutes", it just means using charisma and friendliness to get them to like Producer enough to share information.

>>33856188"Look, Vahlen." You sigh. "I just want to make sure I'm not getting cheated if decide to get a genemod, you know? I mean, I know Cyberdyne is on the up and up when they give me an augmetic."You flex your augmetic arms to highlight your point."Lifetime warranty on these things and they haven't failed me once so far. How can I trust genemods if I suspect you're keeping the answer buried?"Vahlen seems taken aback by your rationale and sighs, defeated."Many years ago, my father was the original project head for our genemod program." Vahlen explains. "He was an absolute genius in the field. For years, Umbrella and other companies were trying to make genemods work. The problem was finding a suitable delivery system. Nanomachines were just too expensive and complicated, and it looked like the project would be scrapped.""But your father found a way." You say.(cont)
>>33856690Jenner is love
>>33856690It's pretty much Jenner, Lillith pretty much went into same-age or little sisteru because sob story past.
>>33856712It could happen. That Idolm@ster Fantasy quest had very light romance, and the times Producer went out on dates in that it was mostly him and the girl getting into shenanigans and fight clubs and shit.
>>33856709Also part of the reason is voted charm
>>33856740"Yes." Vahlen nodded. "My father was a virologist and was previously head of our wildly successful in Virology department. He realized that we already had naturally existing vectors to carry and deliver strands of DNA. Viruses!""....what?" You frown."Oh, don't worry, the majority are absolutely harmless." Vahlen chuckles. "Anyways, my father synthesized a virus that could inject a genemod sequence directly into the target's cells.""That still doesn't explain why genemods are only temporary." You frown."I'm getting there." Vahlen assures you. "My father's original virus, the H-Virus, was a masterpiece. Whatever changes it introduced were completely permanent. We were on the edge of revolutionizing the field!""And feel a big 'but' coming...""But... there was an accident." Vahlen sighed. "There was an explosion in his lab. We lost everything. The data, the research samples, my father...""I'm sorry.""It's in the past." Vahlen shakes her head. "Anyways, we lost everything. The current virus we have, the I-Virus, is just a pale imitation of the H-Virus. The genemods it delivers can't permanently bond to the subject's DNA. It'll eventually be 'repaired' by the body and expelled, which necessitates constant dosage.""I see." You nod.>Was it really an accident?>So there was absolutely nothing left?>There's no chance of recreating the H-Virus?>Other
>>33856766>>Was it really an accident?There are reasons why certain people wouldn't want this research to succeed.
>>33856766>>OtherWhat about the test subjects?
>>33856766>So there was absolutely nothing left?This seems like the most immediate concern.
>>33856766>>Was it really an accident?I'm sorry but this is delta city after all. The chance of a competitor getting to him wouls have been rather high.
>>33856766>Was it really an accident?Sounds like sabotage, mate.
>>33856766>>Was it really an accident?We need more info, and while we're on a roll..
>>33856766>There's no chance of recreating the H-Virus?
>>33856766>So there was absolutely nothing left?Damn man, give some condolences to Vahlen. All that time, money, effort all wasted.Suggest a toast in the hopes that she can do it again.I think Cole might have drunk or got some of that into her in the Tombs.
>>33856766>So there was absolutely nothing left?
>>33856766>>So there was absolutely nothing left?>>There's no chance of recreating the H-Virus?
>>33856766>>Was it really an accident?
>>33856766Actually, we do this sort of thing already. Specifically, we've been using HIV to inject our custom genetic code. It's for anti-cancer stuff.
>>33856766>>There's no chance of recreating the H-Virus?Why do I have a feeling Cole was somehow involved with that explosion?Also--I'm assuming it is entirely possible that a whole blood sample from Cole could allow Vahlen to isolate the H-Virus in Cole's blood. If we can assure Umbrella's sponsorship for something so small as a blood draw, we should take it.
>>33856766Uh oh. Now I can see the big picture. That is why they want Cole. She likely has the H-Virus still in her, or the some other element they can extract to reproduce it.>Was it really an accident?>So there was absolutely nothing left?
>H Virus>I VirusThey've already made the G virus. The end is nigh.
>>33856869Which is why Vahlen herself doesn't worry me: she seems to be on the up and up. What DOES worry me is Umbrella, which is why I want to see where they stand before letting them anywhere near Cole.>>33856881BOWs, man.
>>33856909>What DOES worry me is UmbrellaSame. God only knows what they're really up to.
>>33856924I don't want Cole to grow tentacles, that's all I'm saying.... Actually, I might be lying about that.
I feel unsafe talking here. We should talk in an safe place, like our facility which afterwards the capt can cause an unfortunate traffic accident
>>33856909Umbrella as it is is not getting aanywhere near our daughteru
I think we have to ask Cole's side of the story sometime to see how it matches up.
>>33856924>>33857007So, pitting hyperion against umbrella to protect Cole?
>>33857053Looks like a massive shadow war in the making, huh?
>>33857049If she remembers.
Posting is back up!
Well that could have been much, much longer. Hopefully merc still has it in him to keep running a bit longer.
>>33856766"So there was absolutely nothing left?" You raise an eyebrow."Everything." Vahlen nodded. "Even the backup servers weren't spared. But, we did find one odd thing...""Which is?""Well, when we investigated the lab, we found evidence of the existence of a research sample that was not officially logged in our documents." Vahlen explains. "Nobody seemed to know what it was, and the only person who would was dead. However, that's the extent of what I know. All of the investigation files for that incident are sealed.""I see." You nod. "So why the interest in Cole?""No reason. I was just curious." Vahlen gives you a bitter smile. "She looks almost exactly like me when I was her age.""Huh, what a coincidence." You mutter. You don't trust yourself to say anything else. You glance over at Cole, who was completely murdering a poor, defenseless red velvet cake. There certainly was a bit of resemblance between her and Vahlen. They definitely shared the same dirty blonde/auburn hair color. You honestly didn't notice until Vahlen had pointed it out to you."Anyways, I've taken up enough of your time." Vahlen takes a step back. "It was nice meeting you, Producer.">Let her go.>Talk to her more about the accident.>Ask her about Belle>Other
>>33857319>>Let her go.Oh my God....
>>33857319>Let her go.So that's a thing.
>>33857319>>Ask her about Belle
>>33857319>Let her go.
>>33857319>>Let her go.>> otherGive her our business card. If say she ever want to scratch that itch on the investigation files.
>>33857332>>33857344Welp...She may very well have a sister...
>>33857355This.Exchange business cards.
>>33857319>>Let her go.>Trade business cardsWe almost flirted with Cole's sister?
>>33857319>Ask her about BelleJust one more thing, Vahlen--if it's not too much to as kabout.
>>33857319>Ask her about BelleWell, at least we know what Cole is now. (And yes, exchange business cards.)>>33857362Cole would be her daughter, I think.
>>33857379Or by extension...We almost just flirted with a grown up version of our daughteru. A smarter version at least.>>33857319This:>>33857355
>>33857379Or Cole is Vahlen's clone
>>33857319Just exchange business cards.
>>33857397Excuse me while I throw up in the corner...
>>33857397...And also means that cole is going to be super smart....should we tell cole when we get back?
>>33857428No. Not yet. We need proof of all this.
>>33857428If she is indeed a clone, then she can be anything she wants. Her destiny is in her hands, or as the saying goes, "My heritage is not my destiny."
>>33857362Calling it right now: Cole is a clone and/or genetic experiment created by Vahlen's father because fuck biomedical science ethics and a lack of compatible test subjects.
>>33856869So we're basically treating cancer with AIDS.
>>33857428Don't let your shadowruns get ahead of you mate. We need to see what's in those files. Also want to kidnap Vahlen plus steal whatever work she has on genemodes.
>>33857465Also, would you want a superpowered mouse running around the lab?I'm seriously in need of more bleach...
>>33857455As in tell her of her possible origins and that she might have a sister.Then again we probably should do some checking, see if we can pull up pictures of vanhern as a kid and possible fingerprint records from some national registry to compare with coles.
>>33857465its pretty obvious that Vahlen's father created Cole using some of Vahlen's genes
>>33857362You mean clone, right?
>>33857465So cole is nina tucker?
>>33857319>Let her go, after giving her our card.
>>33857319"Until next time." You nod, and then hand her your business card. "Actually, if you need anything, feel free to call us.""I will." Vahlen gives you a polite nod and wanders back off into the crowd. Jenner, who had been waiting patiently finally steps up next to you."Do you think...?""Let's figure that out after the Expo." You sigh as you grab a drink from a passing server and down it in one gulp."So what now?" Jenner asks.You survey the Expo again. Well, you could try to forge some new contacts with the other idol companies. You also see Hillman, who seems to be a very happy mood. And finally, you see your idols mingling with a few other idols you don't recognize.>Go mingle with the crowd.>See why Hillman's so happy.>Check on your idols.>Other
>>33857484Or we could always ask Cole, but it'll probably hard for her to actually tell us what she knows. For all we know, the father told her never to tell anyone about her past.
>>33857519>Check on your idols.Let's meet their new friends, or enemies.
>>33857519> Check on your idols.Time for best girls.
>>33857519>See why Hillman's so happy.>Go mingle with the crowd.Girls are fine on their own
>>33857504Pretty much.Hopefully without such a gruesome end awaiting her down the road.
>>33857519>>OtherFind the sponsorship company that specialises in vehicles.Another sponsor might be abit much but i'd like access to purchase their inventory.

>>33857521Or if that past is anything usable. Are implanted memories a thing in this future? It's quite possible that everything to a certain point could be some artificial amalgamation of fake memories to make her test tube growth and Skinner Box-style development nothing more than a deeply rooted subconscious nightmare.
>>33857745Well we know that we can go "into" the memories of cyberbrains a la Animus, but I'm not sure about completely altering or adding things.
>>33857745Perhaps a bit of brainwashing and programming seeing as various organizations tried to use them for espionage in the past. Perhaps they picked it back up to see if they could find something useful?
>>33857519>>See why Hillman's so happy.>>Check on your idols>>See why Hillman's so happy.>>Check on your idols
>>33857474More or less.
>>33857519>>See why Hillman's so happy.>>Check on your idols
Once again, I should mention this. If Cole is Vahlen's clone, that would make her Vahlen's daughter, not her sister. </autism>
>>33857878I can see the logic there, but my autism says that since Vahlen's father essentially kept (raised?) her that would make her a sister.
>>33857878I'll just keep calling her sister.Her mother will be jenner.
>>33857915And we'll be the idiot dad.Jenner's the overburdened motherRochelle will be the responsible sisterJulie's the active member of the familyStig's the wacky Uncle.Nemo's Stig's wife who argues with him.
>>33857908Sort of. Biologically though, Cole would still be her daughter.
>>33857935Dear god, this is turning into a sitcom.
>>33857935What about the other idols?Also Lilith?
>>33857950It'd be the second-best sitcom ever made.
>>33857952Lilith is the understanding aunt.
>>33857519"Hey Hillman, it looks like it's your birthday today." You grin as you approach your fellow producer. "Something good happen?""Yep!" Hillman's head bobs. "I managed to secure a sponsorship with CMC!""Really?" You whistle. "What'd you have to do to get that?""Funnily enough, it turns out that Mr. Duke is a huge fan of ours." Hillman laughs. "Guess really does have a soft spot for magical girls.""No shit? What kind of perks is he giving you?""Oh, well, he's going to be fitting my girls with a new line of armor they're planning on. Intended to be very sleek and lightweight, or so I hear.""Hey, any chance you could hook me up with some of that stuff?" You nudge him."I'll see what I can do." Hillman grins. Suddenly you hear a loud shriek, causing you and many other people to snap their heads around to see where it came from. Unfortunately, you see that you idols are in some sort of confrontation with another trio of idols.Goddamnit.You and Jenner quickly dash over, where you see an idol with long, blonde hair done in a series of curls glaring at Cole. You wonder why when you notice chunks of red velvet cake stuck in her hair. The blonde idol was flanked by two other idols, no doubt her bodyguards."Cole, did you-""She was asking for it!" Cole pouted. "She called me a peasant!""Cole, I think she calls EVERYBODY peasants." Rochelle sighed."Somebody explain what happened here already!" You sigh."THAT WHORE ATTACKED ME, THAT'S WHAT!" The blonde idol shrieked. "I WANT HER HEAD ON A PLATTER!""WHO YOU CALLIN' A WHORE!?!" Cole shouts back."I'm sorry, sir." Rochelle sighed. "It happened so fast. We were just talking up with some other idols and that bitch just pushed her way through us and made Cole drop her food.""What kind of food?""Her ice cream."Oh man, now that was a SERIOUS crime where Cole was concerned."What's going on here?" An older man strides up.(cont)
>>33857952That is gonna take a while.>>33857935Morgan's the long lost relative who has been living in Russia and gets into zany antics over cultural differences.Niko is the rebellious kid.Rin's the glue that sticks the family together.
>>33857991"THAT MEAN PEASANT ATTACKED ME!" The blonde idol wails as she points to her ruined hair."Are you their Producer?" The man turns to you."I am. You nod. Producer, Clover Entertainment.""Baske Ohm, Castle Entertainment." The other producer frowns. "Your idol should apologize to Princess.""Wait is that her actual name?" You blink."Yes." Ohm nods. "Is there a problem with that?"It was weird. Then again, Hillman had all sorts of weird stage names for his girls, so you guess it wasn't that uncommon.Yeah, one good way to piss off Cole was to throw insults at her. She was particularly defensive about her less privileged background."No." You shake your head. "Good. Then have your idol apologize." Ohm says again.You glance at Cole, who locked in a glaring contest to the death with Princess. Yeah... you weren't sure your prospects on convincing her to apologize were very good. Plus, technically it was Princess at fault, anyways...>Tell Cole to apologize.>Tell Ohm Princess is at fault.>Other
>>33858010>>Tell Cole to apologize.*Sigh* Sometimes you just gotta suck it down....
>>33858010Both apologise and shake hands.
>>33858010>>Other"Only if she apologizes for insulting her, a princess shouldn't be above admitting her mistakes"make them shake hands
>>33858010>OtherHow about we just all forgive and forget. Move on. It's party. Stuff happens. Yadda yadda... No need to make a bigger scene that already is.
>>33858010Yeah, Cole's not going to apologize. She won't apologize to you, she won't apologize to us, she won't apologize to ANYBODY. If the God of Ice Cream, Red Velvet Cake, and Awesome itself descended upon us and told her to apologize, she'd tell it to fuck off. And probably try to eat it.
>>33858010>>33858045This, try to appeal to her ego and pride.Don't make them shake hands, Cole might accidentally shock her
>>33857935>>33857950>Stig comes through the door to the office after two weeks>Girls swarm him"Uncle Stig! Uncle Stig! Didja get us anything while visiting your cousin in America?">Stig simply stands there, arms folded>The girls' heads fall>Then he produces a two boxes of Mallomars for Cole, a shiny ACOG optic for Rochelle complete with a year's subscription to a gun magazine, and a new pair of brass knuckles for Julie"Wow, neat! Whered didja get all this stuff for us, Uncle Stig?">Cue flashback sequence where Stig stands in a supermarket, a gunshop, and a self defense store>Stig simply shrugs>Cue canned laughter
>>33858010>Other"Only if she apologizes for insulting her, a princess shouldn't be above admitting her mistakes"I'm just glad we didn't pick the princess idol way back then.Also: Baske Ohm? Are we running the risk of getting gassed or Gryps-ed?
>>33858010>>OtherHave both apologise
What's the odds of a morale down coming from this? cosnidering how she might take this as siding with princess instead of her
>>33858062>"That's Stig!"Cue theme music.
This is what I'm picturing what Princess looks like.Either thishttp://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101120231512/typemoon/images/3/38/Luviagelita_Edelfelt.pngor this.http://www.animekon.com/uploads/2008/02/Koi-Hime-Musou-05.jpgActually, the second picture is kind of perfect for me.
>>33858010>Other>Apologize ourselvesAs their producer we should take responsibility for certain actions made by our Idols. Not them.Really I just want to guilt trip Cole, because know if we force her to apologize it will start something. And if we blame the other girl we will also start something.
>>33858197even though she's really at fault? I think the worse thing one could do is make our idols feel we don't have their backs.
>>33858010>>Tell Ohm Princess is at fault.This might not be the most lucative way but better than risking a morale down.
>>33858010>>Tell Ohm Princess is at fault.
>>33858010>Tell Cole to apologize.
>>33858010>>Other>>Apologize on behalf of ColeWe know Cole's too proud to do it herself. Besides, we're supposed to be "in charge" of her while we're in public.
>>33858010>>OtherApologise for cole's behaviou4
>>33858010>>OtherGonna have to apologize on Cole's behalf.
>>33858010You decide to at least try to be diplomatic about this. You glance at Hillman, who just shrugs noncommittally, while Jenner just adopts the "wait and see" stance. Such a big help, those two were."Okay, how about this." You sigh. "From what I understand, both of you girls are in the wrong, so if you both apologize to each other, then we can-""NO! NONONONONONO!" Princess stamps her foot down repeatedly with each syllable. Was this really a grown girl? "I refuse to have this girl be treated as... as... AN EQUAL TO ME!"Man, what a bitch, you think. Of course you don't say that out loud."Well fuck you too, blondie!" Cole retorts.You glance at Ohm to see if he would put his idol under control, but he just looks away. That tells you volumes about who gave the orders around here."Fine! If you won't apologize of your own will, then I will MAKE you!" Princess stamps her foot down again. "I DEMAND A DUEL!"At that moment, the entire hall goes quiet, and all eyes turn to the current confrontation. "This isn't good." Jenner whispers. "Yeah, I don't really want to get in a fight." You sigh."You may not have a choice. Backing out could make us look weak." Jenner glances at the other producers and idols, and even the Tribunal, watching with great interest.>Fine, we accept the challenge.>We're not going to participate in some silly duel.>Other
>>33858330>Terms and conditions first
>>33858330>Fine, but we choose the terms and conditions since you challenged us to a duel.
>>33858330>OtherWhat are terms and victory conditions?
>>33858330>>Fine, we accept the challenge.It's time to D-D-DUEL!Though who should decide on what kind of contest will the two participate in?Maybe not something that Cole is completely bad at.
>>33858330>OtherAsk for terms and conditions first. It'll probably be a performance duel, given Princess doesn't seem like the scrappy type.
>>33858330>>33858345This niggah knows what's up.Also include time and place. >We using Sabers? or Pistol? or Good Ole' Fist-e-Cuffs?
>>33858361>>33858359Or this. Either or really.Though I really don't want Cole using her powers (not that I think she'll need them).
>>33858380Man this is reminding me of a certain duel in VMQ1...
>>33858381And then thought of something also... Duel doesn't need to be a fight fight. At least here. Could be singing or dancing... Oh boy.
Inb4 its a singing dancing duel
>>33858393And that is how Cole Vahlen earned the title of "Princess Puncher"...
>>33858398This is why we choose the terms and conditions.
>>33858411Or maybe the title, "The Princess of Punches"
>>33858413True.>>33858359>>33858381>>33858361Change my this'n to that one fully.
>>33858403What Cole lacks in grace she makes up for in Grit. She's less Ariana Grande and more Pink.
>>33858330"What kind of duel are we talking about here?" You ask."I will be the judge of that!" A masked, red suited man slides his way between you and Ohm. "As an involved third party, I, the Carnival Master, shall mediate this duel!""...what?" You blink."Oh, don't be like that, Producer!" Carnival Master chuckles. "Every fight needs rules, I'm just here to enforce them!"You glance back to the Tribunal for confirmation, and they nod in unison."Okay... so what are we doing, then?" You ask."You have two choices!" Carnival Master waggles two of his fingers in the air. "Either you have your performance idols face off in a singing competition, or you have designated combat idols battle each other! Nothing fancy, just a 1v1 until one side can't stand any longer!""No way to back out of this, huh?" You sigh."And miss out on a wonderful show? Never!"Great>Performance contest.>Battle
>>33858663>>Performance contestLet's see Rin shine
>>33858663>>BattleI'd pick Rochelle. She can show off what she learned from the Captain. Also, if Cole uses her powers, Vahlen just might get clued in to her real identity way too early.
>>33858663>>Performance contest.We'll show these prissy little bitches who really is fairest in the land.
>>33858663>>Performance contest.Because I'm honestly curious in just how much Cole has progressed with her voice.
>>33858663>BattleThis sounds more fun, plus Cole might be able to fight her own battle this way.
>>33858663Want to punch him already...>Performance contestBecause I want to have Princess humiliated and beaten at her own game. What point is there in beating someone else up. It's Princess that needs to be put in place here.
>>33858663>Performance BattleBeen a while since we took part in any performances.
>>33858663>>Performance contest.I like having Rin fight Cole's battle.
>>33858663>>Performance contest.Finaly a way for Rin to defend her protectors
>>33858663Tough choice.If we choose battle, most likely Princess might choose a champion because the whole "Uhh Nobility and Peasants, and stuff". And we might run the risk of exposing Cole's powers. Wwe could have Rochelle sub in, but then again Cole wouldn't like that.She would want to fight herself. Unless we can somehow confince them to do a 2 on 2. Like have Rochelle chime in how "Insulted she was too" or something and issue a duel herself as well. Then there is a Performance. We and everybody knows that Cole is not a Performance Idol, she is a combat one. She will be the underdog and the not expected to win. So losing wouldn't be surprising, and we wouldn't really 'lose' anything. Compared to if Princess lost, she would lose face and rep. Plus Cole could benefit with some more exposure in Performing. And if she wins shows that she can kick but and do it while performing. Again we could have Rin jump in too, if she issues a duel. Similar to the whole Rochelle fighting Cole's battle. But I don't know...My final say.>PerformanceI wanna hear her sing and see her dance.
>>33858663"We'll go with a performance battle." You say."Hmmmm, I'm slightly disappointed at that, but nevertheless!" The Carnival Master snaps his fingers and a small stage lights up at the end of the hall in front of the massive window gazing out into space."Behold, your stage!"Princess quickly and confidently strides up to it, while your three idols all look at you."I so want to beat this bitch." Cole scowls."Now now, this is Rin's department." Rochelle warns."Well, if Cole really wants to go up..." Rin frowns.>Have Rin go.>Have Cole go.>Have Rochelle go.>Other
>>33858833Have Cole go
>>33858833>Have Rin go.Sorry Cole, but she's top-tier and we need to bring our A-game for this one.
>>33858833>>Have Cole go.
>>33858833>>Have Rin go.You can't always have your way Cole
>>33858833>>Have Rin go.
>>33858833>Other>CLOVER REPRESEN' SON! DON'T BE FRONTIN'!>Everyone Goes In
>>33858833>Have Rin go.>Other"I know what you're thinking, Cole, but think of it this way. When Rin beats little miss high and mighty over there, Princes will have to come down and apologize to you right after. It will simply be amazing to watch."Or something.
>>33858833>Have Rin go.This is an important stage.
>>33858833>Have Rin go.
>>33858833>Have Cole go.I'm fine with having Cole go, but she does know what she is risking, does she. Make it clear that if she fails, she will have to apologize.
>>33858833 >>Have Rin go.
>>33858833>>Have Rin go.if you wanted Cole to field the duel then you should have voted for combat you idiots
>>33858833>Have Rin go
>>33858833>>Have Cole go.She wants to go, she gets to go.
>>33858833>Have Rin go.This is too important to risk a loss, we have one chance to show off in front of literally everybody and we'd be fools to not take it.
>>33858833>Have Rin go.What >>33858881 said."I know what you're thinking, Cole, but think of it this way. When Rin beats little miss high and mighty over there, Princes will have to come down and apologize to you right after. It will simply be amazing to watch."
Merccc, question.Can rin's helping hand be used when rin herself is not on the stage?
>>33858959If this can be done, i have no qualms sending cole
Rolled 4, 3, 19 = 26>>33858959Nope. Only if they are on at the same time.>>33858833"Rin, this is your show. Go kick her ass." You say."All right, Producer." Rin nods and clears her throat."Hey! Why does Rin get to go!" Cole complains."Because Rin is a better singer than you are, and this is the type of competition she was trained to handle." You sigh. "Besides, won't you like to see her blow Princess out of the water? I'm sure after she's beaten, Princess wouldn't have enough pride to not apologize to you. Trust me, it'll be amazing to watch.""Whatever you say...." Cole grumps. "Still would've like to beat her or one of her goons up."Of course, Princess decides to go first. She takes the stage, microphone in hand. The entire room falls quiet and Princess starts her song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9F_4EN5PBoYou have to admit... it wasn't that bad, and there's quite a bit of applause as Princess finishes her song and curtsies, shooting a smug look at Rin.>What song do you use to respond?

>>33859068https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye7BGnlTZmQBitch please, you call that a soothing song.....Dammit, listening to this again is making me tear up again
>>33859068https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_20tKuKtF8Because a bit of jazz would be refreshing.
Speaking of singing...I totally just remember that I had this back from when Sparky sang her little song. But I don't think ever posted here. >http://vocaroo.com/i/s11eMyBMxOVz>>33859165I like Jazz.
Do we vote between the suggestions or will Merc pick the most suitable?
>>33859177Or roll. I think he did that before at or near the start of the quest.
>>33859068Shinku Diamond Crevasse
>>33859068Fuck it.Max Anarchy - It's All About Mehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaB-7wnj5Ag
>>33859142I kind of like this song
>>33859068>>What song do you use to respond?>While Your Lips Are Still Red
>>33859068Ai Like Hamburger. Joke.Well if she did Wiess's them, we should go with the infinately better:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ikK5docONc
>>33859132It's alright. Most of the crazy music you people post completely flies over my head.>>33859165Also I remembered I filed away a better version of this song, still sung by Lady Day.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVuI1aLDkLI
>>33859068You can see the gears turning in Rin's head as she tries to recall a song that she can use. You already know that David had her commit quite a large selection to memory, just in case, and you believe it's going to pay off now. Rin, struggling to hid her anxiety at being at such an important stage, steps up and takes the make.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye7BGnlTZmQ>roll 1d20
Rolled 11>>33859267Go Rin
>>33859279I love you, Anon.
>>33859267>>33859279Are we finally going to use star power to add an idol's appeal to the roll?
Rolled 3>>33859279Guys. I vote we spend star power and get the crit.Blow her out of the sky. Get more exposure. Get more sponsorship.
>>33859267She beat our highest but we won 2 out of 3, I wonder what that result will bring?
>>33859267>>33859279Holy Shit yes!My Song won!
>>33859306I think we might have to if we want to beat that 19 the princess rolled.
>>33859267>>33859279We should Pop a Star Power on top of this or something and just destroy her. >>33859306>>33859309We should!
>>33859309I agree, bust that power out
>>33859279So, at this rate, Princess is going to edge out ahead of Rin. Would you like to use a STAR POWER to boost Rin's rating? She should have sufficient Appeal to beat Princess.You currently have 3 points.>Y>N
>>33859310A tie breaker round with each girl singing part of a duet, trying to out do each other?>>33859365Y
>>33859365>http://pastebin.com/Wrrjy1RM>YDon't we have improvise?
>>33859365>YThis is likely the biggest stage she will ever perform on, it is totally worth it.
>>33859365>YDamn straight. This is the perfect opportunity to advertise ourselves, and Rin in particular. That, and I want to put this idiot in her place. She could stand to learn some humility.
>>33859377Quick, fans of musical stage plays! What are good duets that feature the two singers competing against each other?
>>33859382She already got an 18, I'm not sure improvise is going to be much help on this particular roll.
>>33859365If there was ever a time its now
>>33859393>http://pastebin.com/Wrrjy1RMWell we already did tell her she is the best.Better prove it
>>33859365>STAR POWER USED!>You have 2 remaining.You're not quite sure what it was. Maybe Rin was just in the zone, or maybe it was the way the Moon just happened to place itself directly behind her as she sung. However, what you didn't doubt was that Rin's song seemed to make an impression among all those gathered. Finally, after the final line is uttered, Rin curtsies and steps off the stage without missing a beat. Everything is silent for a few more seconds until one of the Tribunal, of all people, starts to applaud. And the rest of the guests begin to applaud as well."Did I do good?" Rin asked."Yeah, I think you did good." You grin.Across the room, you could see Princess' mortified expression as she realized she lost. Heh, that was pretty funny.>Go over and force Princess to apologize.>Nah, this is enough punishment for her.>Other
>>33859589>>Go over and force Princess to apologize.Bullying is always an option
>>33859589>Go over and force Princess to apologize.WE SHALL FEAST ON YOUR TEARS
Rolled 8>>33859589>>Go over and force Princess to apologize.>>OtherBut we get cole to apologise as well.And we do the apologising discreetly, no need to make a major scene or drag her through the mud.
>>33859589>>Go over and force Princess to apologize.
>>33859589>>Go over and force Princess to apologize.We promised Cole she would have her pound of fleesh.
>>33859589>>Go over and force Princess to apologize.be civil
>>33859589>Go over and force Princess to apologize.>Other: To Cole"See told you. Amazing.">>33859625That she does.
>>33859589>>Nah, this is enough punishment for her.This is done and over. Move on.
>>33859589>>Go over and force Princess to apologize.make cole say sorry at least
>>33859618I agree wid this. Less anomasity between competitors this way.
>>33859653I really doubt having Cole apologizing is going to change how much animosity there's going to be here. Princess is going to be on a blood hunt after this party no matter what.
>>33859589>Go over and force Princess to apologize.A deal's a deal, sweetheart.
>>33859618Keep it behind closed doors
>>33859589>Go over and force Princess to apologize.
Rolled 19>>33859589>Go over and force Princess to apologize.But get Cole to apologize as well
>>33859589"Cole," You wave your idol over. "We're going in.""Yesssss!!" Cole grins.The two of you walk over to where Princess is, now in absolute tears over losing and stuffing chocolate cake into mouth."Wow, and people say I issues with food." Cole frowns."Quiet." You sigh. "First, you say you're sorry." "What?" Cole looks at you with a look of betrayal."It's the polite thing to do." You say. "The faster you do, the sooner we can get it behind us.""Ugh, fine." Cole rolls her eyes. "Look, I'm sorry for getting cake in your hair, Princess." Princess says something, but you can't really make out what it is because her mouth is still full of cake. But... you assume she apologized as well. Personally, you feel a bit bad for kicking a girl when she's down like this."Damn... you know, I figured I'd feel a whole lot better after we -I mean- Rin showed that bitch who's boss." Cole sighs. "But, I dunno, I guess I sorta felt sorry for her, actually.""Awww, what's this? Did my little Cole's heart grow three sizes today?" You coo."Sh-shut up!" Cole punches you in the shoulder. Not hard, but enough that would feel it."Anyways, Producer, it looks like the party is starting to wind down." Jenner says. Indeed, you can see guests starting to filter out of the room slowly but steadily."Really? What happened to that contest at the end?""I guess they figured with Rin stealing the show like that, there was no point." Jenner shrugged."That's nice." You nod. "So should we be going, now?""Actually..." Jenner bites her lip. "There is one thing."(cont)
>>33859836"What?" You ask."Well, I talked with Boss before we came here, and he seemed to think that... um... the both of us were overdue for a vacation.""Does he?""Y-yes." Jenner nods and hands you a slip of paper. It's a certificate for one night at the hotel here, in one of the penthouse suites.Jesus, Boss, where do you get this stuff?"So, I was wondering if you were going to take up Boss's offer. Erm, it seem like a shame not to." Jenner says a bit awkwardly."What about the girls?" You nod to Rin, Rochelle and Cole."Stig can meet them at the bottom of the elevator and take them back." Jenner shrugged. "Unless, you know, you feel like bringing them with us, which is totally your call...">Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.>Sure, we and girls could use a little break.>No time for vacations. We should head back.>Other
>>33859836>"Awww, what's this? Did my little Cole's heart grow three sizes today?" You coo.Damn it Producer-san. Your inner daddy is showing.
>>33859848>>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.Hohoho.Jenner i see what you're angling at
>>33859848>>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.Oh yea.
>>33859848>>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.Because it's true
>>33859848>Sure,I think the two of us need a day off.
>>33859848I have a felling boss isn't exactly forthcoming on his intentions. There has to be a reason for this. Too convenient that he'd have this right here and now with all these people in this place.
>>33859848>>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.It's time.
>>33859848>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.
>>33859848>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.You best be ready Jenny.
>>33859848>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.I feel like this is going to end horribly, but I can't resist the lure of the shiny red button just begging to be pressed...
>>33859903Not leaving the suite
>>33859848>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.At last. It begins.>>33859836>Cole sighs. "But, I dunno, I guess I sorta felt sorry for her, actually."Best daughteru.
>>33859885Don't question boss. He's far beyond anyone here.
>>33859848>>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.
>>33859848>>Sure, I think the two of us need a day off.Rin, Roro, Cole. You get a day off with the rest of the girls. Have fun.
>>33859910How is this a shiny button.
>>33859945It's waifu button. They're always shiny.
>>33859945Because something awful is going to happen to the idols in transit that we could have prevented had we been there, I just know it. Alas, nothing we can do about it.
>>33859957True, but we can't exactly say no. Stig is already waiting. The Boss gave us tickets for the both of us. I mean what can we say as no?
>>33859931>Producer getting too attachd to Boss's little group of teenage killers.>Orders Jenner to seduce the producer in order to get him under controlI'm on your game, Boss.
>>33859931Obviously Boss is planning to engineer a Kwisatch Haderach from the monstrous child that will inherit the genes of P-san and Chifuyu-nee.
>>33859848"Sure, I think the two of us can use a vacation." You nod. "Even if it's only for a day.""That's great." Jenner nods, maintaining her stoic expression, though you can tell she's trying to suppress a smile. "I'll let the girls know about the new plan.And off Jenner goes, now with a slight spring to her step.You can't help but feel that she planned all of this. And everything was going according to plan...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread will be next week. Don't forget PJ Witches on Sunday and Gundam Build Fighters on Friday!
>>33860031Thanks for running Merc.
>>33860031Thanks for the thread Merc, even if there was a huge hiccup along the way.Also next thread we're spending it with Jenner or back to business?
>>33860031Haha. Time to give jenner the D
>>33860031Loved the run, Merc, especially the revelations about best daughteru's sister/mother/gene-donor and the chocolate fountain. Looking forward to next week.
>>33860031Thanks for the thread Merc.Now wheres a smut anon to write up how the night goes for P-san and Jenner
>>33860057Either:1) A Day Without Producer (Idols Side)2) Improving Co-worker Relations, Among Other Things (Producer/Jenner Side)
>>33860031So does that means Rin won the contest, unofficially?
>>33860095I kind of want to see both.Or Himawari hacks into the tower to see what their doing and eventually grabs the attention of all the idols, and staff.
>>33860133I want this to turn in to Die Hard. Terrorists attack, so Jenner and barefoot Producer have to save the hostages.
>>33860161I try to see that scenario playing only for Jenner to kill all the terrorist with her bare hands since her only day off in how long is ruined
>>33860205That would be pretty great.
Rolled 92>>33860205Thats fine too.It leads to her raping producer after a hard day's work.
>>33860205>playing from Jenner's POV>showing her inner thoughts from time to time, only to get pissed at the aborted vacation due to some terrorist scumYeah, I'd buy into that.
>>33860161I really just want a chill vacation day, with pay per view movies, room service, massages, talking and a peaceful no-worries day.
>>33860232I can imagine Jenner trying to choke the producer due to his slight density
Rolled 9>>33860263and ride him at the same time
>>33860161>barefootYou have no idea how shitty it is to be barefoot during a firefight
>>33860232but yeah I really want want to see this. Now We have to wait a week for this now....
>>33860233You too? God only knows how low of a chance that's got...
>>33860349Maybe it would happen only for a few of our idols managing someway to bust in or spy on us
Rolled 29>>33860233>>33860349and a candlelight dinner in the sea of stars.
>>33860031Thanks, Merc. See you as always.
Just caught up, damn, now I REALLY wanted the charm option.
>>33861056We can charm Jenner next week.
