Thought. It comes unbidden. A stirring of emotion on the surface of our being that spirals into the depths of consciousness. One by one, our aspects awaken, signalling the beginning of yet another cycle. All across the surface of the planet, the message is heard: "THE RETURN IS UPON US".-----"Thank you for all..."The girl before you is fading, slowly disappearing in a shimmer of dust as the circle below her consumes her very essence. Your heart sinks, every last shred of will fighting to keep back the tears. You're a strong girl, and even if you aren't, you'll be strong for the sake of your friends. They depend on you, especially Hayate, and so you stand firmly even if everything inside of you wants to break down with her an-- your eyes snap open. That dream again. Even half a year later, the memories of that evening still come back to you. On reflex you look at the clock beside your bed, its face showing "4:00" in fluorescent green. Go back to sleep. Go for Magic practice Visit the family Dojo and watch your siblings practice. Talk to Raising Heart (about what?) Flick Chrono's ear. He came back yesterday and you feel like teasing the ferretboy a bit. Other

You're way way way too sleepy, and saving the world takes a clear mind and a rested body. With a sigh you curl up in bed, putting Yuuno under your head for extra comfiness. As you drift back to the world of dreams your last thought is about Fate. ---BEEP BEEP BEEP! BEEP BEEP BEEP!!"No Fate, no ther-- OUCH!" You hit the rug of your room hard, the impact jostling you awake. Come on, you didn't fall out of bed since you were in your first year of grade school! Wait. Time!"Raising Heart!"[My Master?]"Time?"[It is six fourty-five, My Master]"Thanks-"[My Master, I suggest you get off the floor]Well thanks.

>>34102235What can I say? We do things full power.
I'm not sure why I thought this quest might be happening at a reasonable pace.
>>34103201We're about a post an hour now anon, that's already pretty good.
Never one to be too late you decide that it's time to trade breakfast for a quick arrival at school. Fate probably took the earliest bus already, eager to get used to life on earth as quickly as possible. If your best friend has this much discipline it just won't do to lag behind.You quickly slip out of your Pajama and bend over to get into your uniform when you hear a strangled-off yelp from behind you. Oh right, Chrono. You keep forgetting the boy is there for some reason. Whatever.<You're coming with me?><*Incoherent stuttering*><Uh, yes.><I promise to wake you up next time>With that you finish slipping into your skirt, tightening your tie and swiping off Raising Heart of her (its? Oh wait Japanese doesn't work this way) cushion on the night stand in almost the same motion. You've become increasingly quick since you began your training.The morning streets of your town are already busy, so you take a quick detour through the park.<Fate, you out there yet?>No answer."Raising Heart, can you find out where Fate is right now?"<Negative, My Master, Fate and Bardiche are both out of range>...what. You almost step into a flower patch. Usually you should be able to contact anyone even up in orbit.

>>34103418>Barrel Shoooto!This takes place after the Reinforce arc so we haven't learned that yet.
>>34103564...ayup. Your QM still isn't quite sober or, for that matter, awake.
>>34103564Obviously it's because Chrono is Hexer's husbando.
This Nanoha is pretty slutty.
[X] Call out to the attacker (-1 AP)[X] Erect a barrier (-1 AP)[X] Transform (-3 AP)Remaining AP: 1"Hey! You over there, can't we talk about this?" You're afraid your voice might not reach them, you've never been really good at shouting. Silence. The wind seems to be slowly picking up, dancing the first autumn leaves over the grass, both breeze and tension sending a shiver down your back.Slowly, you walk onwards, keeping your hand up should you need to block any more attacks. <Yuuno, can you sense them?><No, but I'll at least make sure nobody in this park gets involved>With that, he hops out of your randsel and into the grass, a slowly rotating circle of green light shimmering into existence beneat his feet. One less thing to worry about; Anyone without the means to defend themselves should be out of danger as soon as the field touches them."Hello?! Can you heaaaar me?!"<Master!>With a deafening boom the tree you were just walking under explodes, your reflexes kicking in as you jump out of the way just quickly enough before spinrolling over the gravel and smacking into a stone statue. Okay, that won't work."Raising Heart, please!"]Alright, my master.Standby Ready: Set Up[The world explodes into a fountain of light, your school clothes dissolving into shining motes as each piece of your Barrier Jacket fits itself into place just right. It's a dizzying change, even after you've done it so many times, but at the same time you can feel nothing but joy as Raising Heart's form expands and shifts, turning into its familiar staff form.The light fades, and you idly notice that you seem to have lightly scorched the ground with your transformation. Another shot screeches towards you and--]Flier Fin![--crashes into the head of the park's founder, showering the area with marble chips. How DARE they disrespect such a great man?!You hover, casting about for whoever did this.

>>34104386I'll back >>34104892, seems smart.
Oh wait, I thought we died. Okay then, writing.
>>34106598When Hexer could not acquire fast, the thread seemed to lose anons' attention (compare reply-speed in the first three updates with this last one) dooming the quest to death. I mean, it's Hexer after all.I mean, you kinda want to get to the hook at least before taking hours to update.
>>34106635It's interesting nobody ever minded it in the OC quests he does.
>>34106642It's not like people are particularly mad now
>>34106642Well frankly, Hexer knows how to do engaging chargen, which keeps people discussing even in long downtime. And OC settings are also potentially ripe for speculation. Plus, he started off with the ferret, no wonder people got bored with the most boring Nanoha character. Should clearly have gone with Fate/Chrono sibling shenanigans instead.
>>34106642>>34106673There was enough content in the others to keep interest. This is three posts. As someone who doesn't know Nanoha and is only following due to it being Hex, I have nothing more to add or discuss. Coupled with being silly early and having nothing worth talking about (like which witch is lewdest), there is nothing here to hold anon's interest.
>>34106718>like which witch is lewdestEvangelyne and Sora are lewdest with eachother and probably a lot of other people
>>34106728>Evangelyne>not being lewdest with Helena and the twins
>>34106738No that is pure sisterly! Even sleeping naked together is purely sisterly.
[X] Other Wide Area Search (-2 Action Points)[X] Keep your head down and your guard up."Raising Heart, scan."]Understood, Wide Area Search initiated[You feel the familiar tug as Mana weaves into patterns with a precision no human mind could achive, your link with Raising Heart making you both stronger, more complete. Just like Fate and I, you think idly, as a swarm of pink orbs springs into existence around you, zipping off into the park as you will yourself higher into the air. It might only be a minor problem, but you sometimes regret that you never quite learned how to fly without your device's help. Everything in the universe has a balance they say, so perhaps being among the strongest mages in this generation comes at the cost of some minor skills. The lack of further attacks is disquieting, and so it's hard to surpress a small smile as one of the orbs reports back with a mental bleep."Picture?"The vague outlines of a human pop up on the runescreen floating in front of you. It seems the probe is filming from behind them. That instant, they turn, and with a frustrated yelp you find the connection cut."Last location"]Right ahead, my Master[You land, keeping your shield at the ready. "Hello? I don't want to hurt you!"The stranger seems to have other intentions however: Two more shots whistle past you, a third impacting on your shield, the next three following even quicker. You pant, the beating of your heart speeding up as the thrill of battle slowly begins coursing through you.]FLASH MOVE[ You vault over the now near-continuos stream of shots."SHOOT BARRET!"Your shout is accompanied by a bright sphere of light that blows up the brush your assailant was hiding under like a grenade.As the smoke clears, you almost faint, the person half-kneeling, half-standing in the rubble probably the last one you'd expect here.Slowly, you walks towards her, saying her name name more on accident than by conscious decision."Suzuka… chan?"
And that's unfortunately it already for now, thanks to those that came. I'll conclude this at another time, hopefully soon.My twitter is https://twitter.com/ConvictCyborg, please wait warmly for our story to continue.
>>34109231Don't strain yourself
>>34109231Alright, thanks for running. Your pace doesn't seem great for one-shots though.
>>34109280A Tale Of Witches will most likely continue today. Watch the Twitter or Cutie G.
>>34109296Sounds great! See you Friday.
>>34109295>Your pace doesn't seem great for one-shots though.Nope. Not yet by far.>>34109287I'm not sure whether that was sarcasm or not. I gotta refill my prescription for autism meds.
You write Nanoha pretty mannish. Any reason for that? Atow indicates you can write really girly girls.
>>34109323>I'm not sure whether that was sarcasm or not. I gotta refill my prescription for autism meds.it wasn't, I really don't want you to die
>>34109360>I really don't want you to dieThat's the nicest thing anyone has said to me today. Thank you.>>34109342Hm? Well, she's really not all that /girly/ girly in the way she talks and acts so I had to account for that. She's a very, uh, input-output focused kind of person. Very direct, very focused on results and truths and discipline.Some would say "butch", but that carries way too many negative connotations to use for a character I'm actually quite fond of.
>>34109323We only rib you because we love you.I'm wondering though, do you usually take ages to update because you don't get proper inspiration, or because you need to make sure it's 'perfect' and requires a lot of research/re-writing/proofreading/etc?
>>34109471>I'm wondering though, do you usually take ages to update because you don't get proper inspiration, or because you need to make sure it's 'perfect' and requires a lot of research/re-writing/proofreading/etc?All of those in varying percentages. On one hand I think character interaction is one of the few things I'm even remotely capable of calling myself semi-decent at with a straight face, on the other it requires a lot of listening to the characters and re-adjustment of sentences in order to read without rolling a Willpower Check each sentence.Sometimes I also simply get stuck because I know too much of the scene and too little of how to make it come out.At other times, it's mere loss of stamina, or some unwanted thought keeps intruding. Stuff like that.>We only rib you because we love you.Ah! It is how wise man once say: "Anon love, like moon, is harsh mistress".
Thanks for the thread!
