At the beginning there was song. At the beginning, all the heavens were but a melody in the Great One's mind" -- Excerpt from the Vadenaya fragments, dated around 4000 Sun Turns before the end of the Age of Desolation and the beginning of the current -also known as the Enlightened- Era. Inscribed over the great Dragonheart Library and all of Athra's temples."What is and was, what shall and may, be one and and now,be goal and path..."I am Maria of House Antioch. I'm bland and not very bright, but at least I know how to give my all! Right now I'm practicing a new spell, and even though I'm probably way slower than everyone else here I'm already making progress. Or so I think.It's really quite interesting to feel the power shift and weave down from eternity into the now, its path at once clear and completely impossible to guess at. ...well, that made no sense and I don't even know half these words. Alright, time for another try."...lay claim to all that's been given since the foundation of the world!"There it is again. The thundering joy, the ocean of mad jubilation as every fiber of my being feels like it's been awakened for the first time in forever. It feels as if I can see every fiber in my mentor's simple black dress, and the colours in the room all have a shine all of their own."Oh before I forget, don't overuse it. It won't do you any good to force your body to work four, five times as hard as it's supposed to. Do you understand what I'm saying?"Hmm, yes that makes sense. 1/2
"When wrestling it's alright then?""Why would yo-- yes. Just tell your opponent. It wouldn't be fair otherwise". That makes sense."Understood. Thank you, uh… what was your name?""Aleiya. You can consult me outside the classroom if you want. Eventually they'll expect you to join a cell and study on your own as well as with the teachers so if you want I can give help you get started once you get there". She smiles. Seems like she could be quite useful!> tbc, please wait warmly
An update on that thing from before. Still most assuredly a WiP. What do you guys think?http://pastebin.com/zKkbpY62
>>34487627My conscience says no. My boner says yes.
>>34487549Finally, it's back!>>34487627I don't wanna spoil myself, but other than the requisite suddenness of most smut the start seems pretty good to me! At least got Maria's internal dialogue down.
>>34487549>That makes sense.Perfect senseMaria has to work on that self-preservation
the witcherest quest is back!
>>34487515I missed this Hex, happy to see you back
>>34487549>"When wrestling it's alright then?"WHY IS SHE SO PERFECT?>>34487720Good thing electricity hasn't been invented yet or she'd stick her fingers in all the outlets. All of them.
>>34487798>Good thing electricity hasn't been invented yetThat's wrong though.
I am the Watcher of the Gate. The protector of the Sacred Rest. When the call came, our Cabal saw it as an honor. At last the All-Mother seemed to acknowledge Koshari and the important role we played at keeping this world together. And then I saw her again. The heretic. The abomination. The arrogant fool who thought herself above the natural order of things, calling down the power of her goddess to transgress against mandates older than the cosmos.I can feel her now. Feel her pull across the halls of this place. Oh, I won't end her, that would go against the Weave, but I'll make her face her past sins. Just wait, soon you'll no longer be able to hide behind your mask of baseless cheer.I smile to myself, my long dark hair swishing behind me as I follow the faint pulse like a carrion bird follows a dying feast in the desert…
>>34488247Well that's a thing.
>>34488247I-is Helena in trouble?
>>34488247Chuuni as fuck.
>>34488327Well someone certainly doesn't appear to fancy her too much.
I am pain. Confusion. Madness. Pain. Confusion. Guilt. Memory. I don't know what I am or why I am here. I know I hurt people. Again. Always I hurt people. Always I destroy. Always I forget. Always I remember. Two girls. One smelling like a memory, the other like a forgotten dream. Witches, I remember. They only wanted to be friends. I wanted to understand them. They wanted to understand me. And then I hurt them, trying to make them understand. Again. Why do I always, always hurt others? Even worse, I ran away. Did that thing I do when I get afraid and made everyone notice me less. I can't disappear. Wish I could disappear. Fade. End. But I can make it seem like I'm just belonging where I am. Why I can do that? I don't know. Now I'm wandering. Always wandering. There are some things I remember. Like that the feeling right now, this sensation of fading, could mean that I'll forget again.From somewhere, a… feeling, yes, that's what it's called. A feeling wells up. A wish. A dream. I don't want to fade away anymore. I don't want to forget anymore. I don't want to hurt anymore. Or hurt others. Or see them be hurt.From somewhere, a knife finds its way into my hand. The pain as I cut into my flesh is nothing. I've felt worse. Made others feel worse. That much the feelings-that-are-memories tell me.SANYA. A name outlined red against pale skin.My name. Even if I forget, my body will remember.
>>34488476CRAAAAWLIIING IIIIIIN MYYYY SKIIIIIIIN
>>34488476So is she crazy or afflicted by magic shenanigans?
I think Hex is tripping.
>>34488499THESE WOUNDS THEY WILL NOT HEAL
>>34488524FEAR IS HOW I FALLLLLL
>>34488476>Did that thing I do when I get afraid and made everyone notice me less.So THAT'S HOW SHE SNUCK OUT and Sensing teach didn't think anything of it. She can literally become a background character at will. It's probably reality warping not mind fuckery or she'd have noticed.
>>34488545CONFUSING WHAT IS REAL

>>34488951What if she's an outsider stuck in reality and can't remember what she was?
>>34488980Then you better IA! IA! fool because this shit's going to get full of creepy tentacle rapemonsters really soon.
>>34489006>really soonSo in a couple of years.We're still on the first day of school.
>>34489315> implying tentacle rape monsters wait
>>34489350No, I'm implying that Hex is slow.
>>34489420Well so far we've had 30 minute intervals on average in this thread. He might be getting faster.
>>34489451HAHAHAHAHAHAHAThere hasn't been a vote. There are 30 minute intervals in what is basically the opening post.
>>34489451Let's put up a betting pool on number of updates before autosage limit.
>>34489534I throw in for 1 possibly none though.
She writes down an address (Fifth floor of the third circle in the west wing, door 303, Sairan of House Alumandra) and, oddly enough, signs it with a small drop of blood after piercing herself with a needle. "Oh that? Don't worry about it, some of the things woven into bricks of this school won't let you pass unless you can prove you belong where you want to go". "Really wouldn't have minded living somewhere a little more normal but that old crone insisted I-- never mind. "It is how it is, and at least this way none of us have to worry about our things being stolen. Not that many are dumb enough to steal from a witch, but you know how it is, some people are greedy enough to try and then we have to raise a fuss and track them down". The woman has pulled up a chair and is now merrily chattering away, her still ink-stained hands waving around as she explains. Oh, but thieves I understand. Some of them are really desperate and most of them have more greed then sense. Like that one cutpurse that tried to steal a casket of currency right when they putting it into the moneylender's office. I wonder if she'd like to hear that one. Hmm, probably not, tales from the life a guard must bore her. "Ah, but I'm probably boring you. I must be off for now. If you want you can leave since we'll close session in a few minutes anyway. See you".And with that, she's off. Hmm. The room is indeed draining of people. Eriadne! I almost forgot. A quick glance towards her reveals that she's already packed away most of her supplies and is idly playing with her pen. Is she looking in this direction? Uh, no, why would she?Where are the others? Hmm. Helena seems to have left already. Actually, I think I saw her leave while most of us where still practicing. 1/2
>>34489603And to clarify, a single update is one or more posts that are separated by a player voting / choice / dice roll event.
What, I thought clerics where supposed to be very studious! The twins seem to still be in practice. Apparently they're even casting spells together, each set of hands mirroring the other perfectly. Strange.After considering for a second I start towards Eriadne.SOCIAL "Let's look for the Mess Hall, if you don't mind". "Hey, what did you learn?"

>>34489750>get social with the best witch.Error, you didn't vote to have Maria talk to a mirror all day.
>>34489789Yeah, we gotta flaunt that cooking mastery. Make the nobles jelly of our skill.
>>34489789> you don't have to, I'm just separating them for clarity's sake> not suggesting an action in dialogue or under ACTION means you're letting Eriadne take the lead in this case/defaulting to what was already being talked about/on the schedule in other cases
>>34489832We're going to get food. For dinner. We could make breakfast though.

> meanwhile, Chuunie priestess raped Helena senseless in a corner somewhereGood job /tg/.
>>34487515>well, that made no sense and I don't even know half these words.kek
>>34490756Who says it was rape.
>>34491028Right, it was "a purification ritual" to "cleans" the "heretic".
>>34490756Maybe Helena turned it around on the chuuni.
>>34491057See totally PG
>>34491082> If A tale of witches were a Nickelodeon show
I thought Sora and Sanya where the same person.
>>34491604That can be excused; it has been a while so me myself can't recall half the folks without looking at a cheat sheet.
>>34491604Sanya is the chick that mindraped us in Sensing class. Sora is the redhead with the slight cockney accent that entered into an onee-san alliance with Eva.
>[X] "Did you know we will be allowed to study on our own later? Isn't that great? I mean, we could, you know, do it together… maybe">[X] "Hey, what did you learn?"She looks up at me, expectant eyes a grey-green colour that reminds me of the stones found inside the river flowing through home. Ah no, I'll not think of that right now. Just focus and keep yourself together, you'll have to be at your best behaviour when near her!"Yes?" A silver word, like a glass bell rung for midnight prayer. Eriadne puts her pen away and… no, that can't have been. I almost thought I saw a smile play across her face. Trick of the light, surely. Wishful thinking. Why would she smile at seeing me? Well, maybe because of my clumsiness, but right now I wasn't being that terrible, right? Oh well, no, it was just my imagination. Better that way."If it's not too much trouble, maybe we could, you know, share what we learned? I mean, if it's okay with you. Maybe you could show me what you know and help me get better?" Yea right, good going there me, you sound like the Fool Who Asked The Mountain to Move already. Way to demand more than you're due. I'm about to withdraw my offer -demand, really-, but stop myself, as she nods, briliant white hair glimmering."Yes. It could be quite enjoyable". What? She actually said yes. And that she'd… enjoy it?! Gods. Maybe she's just being polite, but still. "Excuse us, Lady". Someone's pulling on my skirt. What. Oh, it's one of the twins. How did they sneak up on us? Normally I'd have sensed them. Come on, already lettign your instincts lapse like that?Maybe it's a twin thing."Yes?" Both have thick black hair styled exactly the same way. Some sort of braid that I can't quite figure out how-- Ah, but focus on what they're saying. "Have you seen the Senra Evangelyne?" Senra. Older sister/educator/caretaker, something like that. Funny they'd know that word.1/2
I look at Eriadne, who simply shrugs lightly. Oh right, how could she know. Silly me."Sorry you two, she left before class began". "If you want you can accompany us, we'll probably find her". Never mind, they're strange and I want to be alone with Eriadne for a while.As we enter the hall I see Sora sit at a table somewhere in the far back. Still no Helena, though curiously enough. Try to arrange for a table for all of us (3d10) Two people table. Choose who to sit with.I hope they have WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD, MARIA?Talk/say/search out/do Free

>>34493079> WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD, MARIA?Well, it's obviously Pincelli Mushroom Stew! Oh, that's Eri's as well? What a coincidence~But in all seriousness, I'll go with beef stew. Is the Pincelli Mushroom Stew something we would know how to cook? Considering her mom's occupation I'd expect her to at least know some refined recipes.
>>34493614A Tale of Witches: the Murder Mystery Quest
>>34493010>She looks up at me, expectant eyes a grey-green colour that reminds me of the stones found inside the river flowing through homeWe've seen her have green eyes before, right?
Every time Maria gets all purple prose about Eri almost all of her imagery is about something from her home. Does she just have a real love for her home and it's scenery or is there something about Eri that reminds her of home or gives her a "home" feeling?
So, taking all bets on how many more hours we'll be waiting on Hex.
Rolled 6, 2, 6 = 14 (3d10)>>34496893Hard to tell. I could be anywhere from a day to a few hours.
>>34494297Bright green is irritation, green with gold is calm waiting.>>34494376Could also be a lack of experience.
Isn't it weird how much Maria seems to like her father compared to her mother?

If anyone is going to be awake for Decu's drawthread would you mind dropping a request for me, I wanted to ask him to draw Eriadne trying her best not to pat Maria's head, but I'm about to pass out and miss it, character portraits for referenceThank you if anyone takes the time to do it
>>34502088There's also a skirt reference image somewhere. Search it by filename "Maria Skirt" and add Hexer's trip to the field.
>>34502088Why would she want to pat our head?! We're really not that cute.
>>34502478Shut your whore mouth

>>34502088Thank you guys, now I just hope he actually does it
>>34505694Since it was somewhat late and the reference pics weren't posted I wouldn't bet on it. But I''m sure there'll be more drawthreads.
>>34505860>>34505694I did link to >>34502088So unless Decu doesn't want to or is super lazy, there shouldn't be anything from stopping him - or someone else.
>>34506029He starts from the top though and predictably didn't get anywhere near far enough down the page to see your request.
>>34504852Maybe if we put on a cute dress? Ah but no, it would just look ridiculous on us. ;_;

>>34507304I-I don't know if Maria could take the grim.Speaking of GRIM, these posts today, man. Some sort of self-mutilator who also hurts others. Goddamn.
>>34507331Well she didn't seem to do it willingly. More of an act of desperation, hoping to get someone to understand and try to help her.Just taking a guess, considering that she doesn't really want to forget.
Reading Black-Haired Priestesses response, I'm getting the feeling she's more chuuni than just, evil
>>34507394I don't think she's outright evil either. This doesn't seem to be the type of story for it. inb4 Helena really did something seriously terrible.
>>34507414From what I can tell, Helena used to be in some kind of death cult before becoming a priestess of her current god and chuuni priestess wants to punish her for abdicating the covenant.
>>34507426Nah, Helena served Lady Athra who seems to be some kind of Spring/fertility goddess. Not sure where it was said though.
>>34507444He thinks she switched gods. The info you're looking for is from the early threads. Pretty sure one of the first things out of Helena's mouth was how great her god is.
>>34507483>Pretty sure one of the first things out of Helena's mouth was how great her god is.Sasuga cleric-chan.
Didn't we vote to comfort Sanya a long time ago? I want to take that back. I don't trust Maria around her, she'll just hurt Maria again.
>>34507611It's not so bad, she did feel bad about it, we should hear her out before we make any rash judgements about her
>>34488247Waiiit a minute. How the hell is chuuni priestess sensing Helena? I thought that shit was restricted to high level priestesses?
>>34507646I'm calling hax. OR she's simply higher level than we thought. Everyone automatically assumed both to be low level but we didn't hear anything like that either IC or OOC. Helena has "intuitive understanding of the human body". That implies some sort of mediumship.
>>34507394>>34507414>>34507426Oh so that's what you were talking about: http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/116986614850I want her to verbally abuse me.
>>34507646It's probably one of those powers Hex mentioned Athra Priestesses get>RE: Powers:>Minor ones, though for how much longer is another matter. Among other things she can detect and differentiate the life force signatures of living beings (hide-and-seek is one of those things clerics of Lady Athra play as a form of training)

>>34507739Oh, that makes sense. I had it confused with that Watchfire thing.
> shadowruns> AToWDidn't know I'd see the day.
>>34507797I'm quietly freaking out for Helena despite Maria having no in-character way to know she's in trouble and knowing she's going to write a diary entry and be just fine.
>>34507797Give players enough free time to speculate and it's inevitable.
>>34507737>Sanya: [disaster] Heh.Also, I'm starting to think that Raven Hair is Hex's self insert or something, she's just too fucking chuuni.
>>34507797A loli has been threatened and it's entirely out of our hands to do anything about it yet. It's pretty natural.

>>34507874I don't think Hex is that kind of asshole.
>>34507912>tiptoe the lineThat is outright slut talk there.
>>34507824>and knowing she's going to write a diary entry and be just fine.She wrote it in class.>>34507930For some reason I don't mind it with her.
>>34507930Isn't it great?
>>34507874That would be hilarious if it happened. So would Raven Hair being the most pushy girl going for Maria since /tg/ can't resist pushy girls.
>>34507930Maybe I'm channeling Maria too hard then cause it didn't seem that lewd till you pointed it out. She's a cool slut.
>>34508018Eeeeh, she's just so chuuni though.
>>34508018> Chuuni x PROTECTMODE Space CadetCould be fun.>>34508043That's her charm point.
>>34508053Yeah but it's look at me cut myself chuuni not fun chuuni.
>>34508043>>34507844Damn I'd so fuck that chuuni out of her.
>>34508070That's not what I got from her at all? Sanya is the CRAWLING IN MY SKIN girl, raven-haired priestess is just very zealous about her death-cult or whatever.
Can you really call it chuuni when it's true and gives her magic powers?
>>34508108>death-cultDidn't she worship the same Goddess as Helena?
>>34508119You can have magic without thinking of yourself as some kind of UBER DEATH LORD.
>>34508142Not really? Being a priest seems to be all about being an extension of your god's will in this setting.
>>34508140>Didn't she worship the same Goddess as Helena?No. Protector of the Sacred Rest doesn't sound like Spring Goddess at all. Maybe they used to before one of them switched >>34488247, but when they got their tats they were already serving different deities.https://medium.com/@ATaleOfWitches/helenas-diary-d581212e53f5
>>34508142>UBER DEATH LORDWhere are you getting this? She has a job and is proud of it. Worst she's done is be a little arrogant. Okay, a lot. Her arrogance might be warranted if she's hot shit.
>>34508191>KoshariMight be the name of her goddess, but if one of them changed it would have had to be her, Helena has been serving Athra all her life.http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/116271711298>Helena came to the temple and under Athra's guidance after her birth, however.
>>34488247>The arrogant fool who thought herself above the natural order of things, calling down the power of her goddess to transgress against mandates older than the cosmos.If Chuuni is a priestess of some God of death then maybe she's mad at Helena for saving someone's life
>>34508215That says Helena came AFTER her birth. There's a window of opportunity where she could have served a different god.
>>34507737Maria to so pure and innocent it hurts, goddamn.
>>34508392Best girl by far.
>>34507737While Eva's response is the most naughty, I still find Sora's weirdly arousing and I don't know why.
>>34508392>>34507737So she's done training to resist capture before? Escape Artist feat when?
>>34508392>>34508449>>34508574You now realize that this means that her father has put her into bondage before as part of her training. Apply quotation marks as you see fit.
>>34508739No, she said this is a new kind of knot. Her father would have use boring knots for tying people up non-sexually.
>>34508392>>34508449>>34508570So Maria for Daughter, Eva for lover, Eriadne for Wife and Sora for fembro?
>>34508942Helena + Twins for Daughterus.
>>34508942>Not everyone for harem girl
>>34508942All for my dungeon in my basement
>>34508986>>34508975>>34508942Would you daughteru a chuuni cultist?
>>34509020Better her than Sanya.
>>34509020Yes, then ship her very hard with rival priestess. Eva a shit.
>>34509032It's like you don't want to be accidentally mindraped.
>>34509044More like I don't want to try to touch Sanya's many faults with a ten foot pole. Maria better not good girl herself into trying to fix her.
>>34509035>Eva a shit.What?! Why?
>>34508942Does a fembro allow for sexytimes? Because Sora is the sexiest.
>>34509089But anon, Sanya is the daughteru who needs you most. Don't you want to help her, save her, make everything okay?
>>34509124Fucking your bro is usually against the code, but sure.
>>34509138NO.I'm sure Maria doesn't try to comfort every drug addict and hopeless reject she meets, too.
>>34509089But delicious broken daughterfu with superpowers, anon.
>>34509183That'll be Helena when unnamed raven-haired priestess is through with her. Way cuter and she doesn't cut herself.
>>34509237This isn't /qtg/How embarrasing
>>34509220She doesn't do it yet you mean. U wonder how we'd have played in Cleric mode.
>>34509264We have crossover with GermanSchteel, DXR and XS it seems.
>>34509288We'd be devout as hell. Roleplaying!
>>34509288Stripped of our powers in thread three.
>>34509411Just my kind of gal, but I respect your opinion.
>>34507678>"intuitive understanding of the human body"I wonder how far that goes.
>>34510033Helena is not for lewds.
>>34510073Everyone is for lewds anon, and you can't stop me.
Okie dokie, thanks for staying around. Gimme a bit, I gotta rewrite this a little.> this entire conversationHoo boy.>>34508574>So she's done training to resist capture before?Yes. The guard in Maria's part of the woods is somewhat like gendarmery with strong aspects of a Secret Service once you rank up enough. >>34510033Minor spoiler: She can perform operations on the level of a modern field surgeon, though the nature of her powers precludes her from doing anything needing pharmacological knowledge save the things she's actively learned. Also, she doesn't quite understand WHAT she's doing WHY, so all in all a regular doctor will show her up if he/she's good enough.
>>34510251Is that what pissed unnamed raven-haired priestess off so much? God-assisted field surgery?
The plan is to draw a forearm there too but after trying three times and ending with an abomination, I decided to do it later.
Listen to your elders.
>>34510251> HEALING MAGIC IS FOR PUSSIES, HAVE DIRECT KNOWLEDGE UPLOAD OF MEDICAL SCIENCE INSTEADScalpel cleric best cleric.
>>34510251Is raven hair your chuuni self-insert?
>>34510371The entire cast is my self-insert, anon.>>34510323> dat sparkle and :x faceKihihi.>>34510290...WHOOOAAAAAaaaa damn.>>34510285Ha! As if such pathetic struggles were even worth acknowledging!
>>34510290How do I help her, anon, tell me ;_;
>>34510469Kill her. Put her out of all our misery.
>>34510469>>34510497I was going to say that too.Not but seriously, I think she's gone to the deep end and is actually really miserable. Too many bad turns. If we decide to try and redeem her, there's a good chance Maria'll get injured some way.Also, even if she gets better, she might get fixated to whoever paid attention to her.Or maybe it'll be a happy ending and everything will be ALL RIGHT. I don't know Hex well enough to predict if shit turns grim at some point.
>>34510560Hex as a person is kind of a dark motherfucker but seems to prefer Nobledark stories.
>>34510560Why would I want everything to turn out all right for HER? She's a horrible person who hurts everything she touches.
>>34510615>>34510560She could make for a good weapon.
Hex pls, it's been an hour, since when does rewriting a little take an hour?This feels long even for Hexer Time.
>>34511258It's not. One hour is an eyeblink in Hexer time.
>>34511307We still haven't hit 24 hours since last update and we're not at bump limit. So it's not that bad.
>>34510251>About to head to sleep>Update soonI'm tired but I can't leave yet
>>34511307Man, if Hex ages in Hexer Time then they may really be a few thousand year old loli.
>>34511435That it you're suck in the Hexer zone. You know he won't update but you won't go to sleep anyway.
>>34511523You get stuck in this loop of, it's been so long surely he will post any minute now
>>34511547Next thing you know it's 7am the next morning
>>34510420Did you actually need to rewrite or did you just have an autism attack?
>>34513119It's not perfect yet!
>>34513119>>34513162I imagine hex with powdered wig wringing his hands at the impertinent fool.
Hex pls, we've only had one update in 27 hours. I know you can go faster than that.
So, about that update?
>>34519007We should just give up anon, Hex has forsaken us again.
>>34514910>ImplyingHex is being a massive faggot. I don't know why we expect anything better.One update in 30 hours is ridiculous, and I don't give a single fuck how nice a person Hexer is.
>>34519086Yeah this quest is probably going to get abandoned by him soon.
>>34521052Gotta get worse before it gets better.
>>34521643HAHAHAHAHAIt's been 9 hours for a minor rewrite
God is dead
[X] "If you want you can accompany us, we'll probably find her".[X] Try to arrange for a table for all of us (3d10)[X] Beef stew[X] Operation Goulash I guess whatever Evangelyne saw in them is rubbing off on me a little cause I really, really don't want to say no. Or maybe I'm just that nice. Either way, they're coming with us."We're looking for the mess hall. If you want, we can look for it together. Evangelyne will get hungry and show up all on her own". See, flawless planning. Go, me. What if Eriadne doesn't like it though? Ah, but isn't the nobility supposed to guide the lost? I mean, she's technically not a noble anymore -as hard as that is to believe- and I'm not sure if such small things interest her, but it's important. I really don't like her being angry with me, but these two really want to see Evangelyne. They probably don't have many friends here. Maybe none at all, they are new after all. I can't imagine how lonely I'd be here if I didn't have anyone. So if I help them, wouldn't that be protecting the weak, too? Even if gets set with me I'll have to press on here. ...even if it means to apologize later. Hm. Best to just tell her.I look at her, expecting some sign of displeasure, but she just raises her perfectly arched eyebrows in question, eyes more green now. A shrug, and that's it. Huh. "They're coming with us, Eriadne"."I can see that". Is that amusement in her voice? Probably not."Uh… let's go then". Before I emberass myself any further I turn, the two kids in tow. Hopefully Eriadne will follow, but I'm not about to turn my head and maybe run into something -or worse, make her think I mistrust her- now.1/?
"So what are you two even called?" "Erato". The girl with the red frills on her dress states, looking ahead."Thalia". Her sister is only a second behind, looking up at me with a smile. I'm starting to see why Evangelyne took a shine to her. She's really cute like that. "Those are nice names. Much nicer than mine I'm afraid. Uuh, I'm Maria. Of House Antioch, I guess, but that still sounds so funny to think about. I'm no lady obviously, hahaha.Stop. Babbling. Dammit. This is worse than when Itried talking to that smuggler captain. At least there I uickly adjusted and even got a few songs out of it. Come on, me, they're just two kids. Two kids that need your help, and that's probably one of the few things you're even vaguely good at. Focus, and please by the gods stop talking so much stupid.Was that a-- yes. The girl -Thalia- to my left is giggling, the back of her fragile hand held to her mouth. Oh great…"You're funny, Senra Maria. I like you". I guess that's… good? Wait, "Senra"? That's even worse than "Lady", at least when it's not Eriadne saying it! Best to change topics away from me or this will only get worse each moment."Thank you. Where do you come from? I can't really tell, sorry".The question makes Erato stare at her sister, widening her eyes in a silent question, but Thalia just squints and shakes her head. Twin talk, huh. Wish I could do that with Eriadne, I never know what's inside her head. Though I'd probably not understand it anyway."The west", Erato finally says, voice flat but not unfriendly. She seems to be a bit more withdrawn. Or maybe she just controls her emotions better, going by their manners they seem to come from a place where that's important.2/?
"Celephais", Thalia explains. I start. "I thought it was destroyed". "Well, as you can see we are…" Thalia begins."…very real" Erato concludes."I'm sorry, I shouldn't have--""It matters not. We keep to ourselves, others leave us alone, and everyone is happy that way". Erato shrugs, but at least she's looking at me now though her gaze is somewhat expressionless.>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<Whu-->>Sensation. Impression. Presence<< No seriously, what is--I turn, and the feeling passes, being replaced by the sight of Eriadne walking behind us a few steps. She's a pretty silent walker it seems. Did she do that? Hmm. No, probably not. "You're slow!" Thalia! Don't make me go back on thinking you're cute now. That makes Eriadne's lips curve upwards the slightest bit. "A fly appears in one day and disappears the next. An oak takes years, yet lasts forever". The quote makes me grin, though I quickly turn my head to hide it. My Pa used to say something similar when he taught me how to defend properly. Though it seems I still have a lot to learn there. Don't just act. Think, and then do exactly what you need to and not more. Nice going Eriadne, you really took her down a notch. Noo, don't look at me like that, I'm *trying* to teach them some manners, it will just take a while. Or maybe I'm just bad at this. I'll have to tell Evangelyne then. Though she seems a bit too carefree maybe? I'll have to try either way, rudeness like this just isn't okay."Lady Maria?" "Yes?""Are you certain this is the right direction?" What do you mean, of course it's the right direct… ion. Actually, I don't know, I was just guessing from what I remembered."I'll ask". Thanfully, there's always somebody about, and a quick inquiry assures us that, yes, we're indeed going in the right direction.3/?
>>34526044>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<Magic shit is happening
>>34526284It's either Sanya or Eriadne.
> it's not killWhat.
> Erato> Thalia> Celephais> insisting that they're realThey're not real, they're from the dream world or something like that.
>>34526044>Nice going Eriadne, you really took her down a notch.Maria and Eriadne are bulliesBut it's cute so it's okay
>>34526581It seems that Maria really doesn't know what to do with kids.
The smell of food is heavenly, many of the scents completely new to me. Gods, but I hope they have beef stew. Something simple, something NORMAL after this completely abnormal day. Hey, maybe I could cook it for all of us. That would be nice, and maybe Eriadne would like it! Mama said that people that you don't really know a person until you've cooked for them. Pa said the same about fighting, but that's so not happening with her!Sora's already seated in a corner somewhere sipping a strange green liquid from a tall glass. That won't do.With a hurried "Excuse me, I'll be right back" I leave my companions behind and quickly begin to push two of the worn tables not built into the walls together. Oof, but make a lot of noise. Thankfully few are staring and it turns out I'm just strong enough to move them with ease.That done, I wave the redhead over before turning to Eriadne and the twins. "We'll all sit together!" "Yer a strange one" Sora says, but nevertheless puts her tray down. Hey, there's nothing strange about wanting to spend time with friends!"Who is being strange?" I don't jump. That would be silly, and against what I've learned. No, I didn't just shiver, I'm not that easily startled."Senra!" The twins almost run towards Evangelyne. What's with people sneaking up on me today? The older girl smiles and pats them both on the head. Wow, are they… rubbing against her? Like kittens almost. Now I'm starting to miss being petted. Almost. I'm a grown girl and witch, not a child!! Think of something else, think of something el-- oh right, I wanted to cook!"Who is being strange?" Drop it already, come on! At least Eriadne is sitting, I couldn't stand having her see this."She is". Sora points at me with a thumb. "Oh? And why is that?" Time to get out of here."See you, I'll cook something quick!"Behind me, it seems like I can hear a "...because of things like this", but that might have just been my imagination.4/?
>>34526797>Mama that you don't really know a person until you've cooked for themFixed. Fuggin' revisions blending into each other.

Reading a quest by Hexer is like having a deadbeat alcoholic for a dad. Every weekend he promises to play with you, and every weekend it's the same. On Saturday you try to rouse him at 3 PM after hours of fruitlessly waiting for him to get up on his own. All you ask is go out back and play catch. You just want to spend some time with him. "In a minute," he grumbles, his face half-smooshed into the couch cushions where he passed out the night prior surrounded by empty bottles, "I'll be out in a minute. Go and wait for me."So you go outside with your catcher's mitt and your ball and you sit on the swing in the backyard -- the swing that's too rickety to actually swing on because dad half-assed assembling it in a drunken stupor two weeks after he gave it to you for a Christmas present -- you sit on the swing with your catcher's mitt and your ball and you wait. And you wait. And you wait. And the sun starts to droop low in the sky and your hopes start to droop with it. From neighboring backyards you can hear the joyous concord of other children playing with their fathers, fathers who love them. You hear peals of laughter and conversation. You smell barbecuing meat and freshly mown grass, so different from the dead brown weeds in your yard.Finally you go back inside to check on him. He's asleep, of course. You shake him. "Dad, you promised," you say. "You promised!""Ugh," he groans, rising. He stumbles toward the patio door, knocking over beer bottles in his wake. Twice he nearly falls down. Bleary eyed and ashen he stands in the backyard. He listlessly chucks the ball to you a couple times. It's clear that he doesn't even want to be here. After five minutes he turns to go back in."That's it?" you ask."Daddy's tired," he says. "We'll have to finish next week."You sit back on the swing and watch him through the pane glass door as he sits on the couch again and cracks open another beer. A you watch him drink, your tears finally come. Then the swing collapses.
>>34534074Let it all out, anon.
>>34534074Come to /d/. You'll find no lack of love until the QM disappears forever.
>>34534074…I can't laugh at this.
>>34534074Uhh, anon? Are you alright?
>>34534074But Hex actually tries!I'd say it's more like having a Hikkikomori for a dad.
>>34534351Alcoholics try too.
>>34534351Reading a quest by Hexer is like having a hikkikomori for a dad. All day he sits at his computer drafting up crazy plans and scenarios for the adventures you'll have together, but he never actually wants to go on those adventures. At 3PM on a Saturday you try to grab his attention as he works on a blueprint for a mechanized waterslide that he wants to erect in the backyard. "Dad," you say, "you promised to play catch with me today.""This waterslide is gonna be great!" he says, ignoring your plea. "It'll have three different sliding modes, a turbo gear, two tiers... and of course robotic maids to clean up..."You cut him off. "Dad, you're never gonna build that stupid slide or any of those other inventions. We have two mitts and a ball, can't we just play catch? I just want to play catch. That's all."He looks nervously out the window and gulps. "S-son, you know it's... hard... for me..."You fold your arms. "You said you'd do it. Why can't you be like the other dads? Why can't you play with me?"He stands. He hugs himself as he paces back and forth in his dingy bedroom, trying to work up the courage to leave the house. All for your sake. After an hour of muttering to himself, he finally gets the nerve to step out. Even though he's trembling and clearly scared shitless, he has the catcher's mitt on and he's willing to do his best. Because of his crippling anxiety at being outside, the game of catch takes forever. Every time he has the ball, he takes what feels like hours to toss it to you. He keeps glancing this way and that like he's waiting for some impending doom, and can't hold up his end of the conversation. After five minutes he scuttles back inside, apologizing under his breath, promising to do more next week.Five minutes later you see him drafting plans for a steam-powered battlesuit. "It's gonna be great!" he insists. "You'll love it, it's going to have a turbo mode, and dynamic power... and of course a robotic maid to clean it..."
>>34534820That's sweetly depressing rather than just making me want to take the jump.
Oh, we've hit bump limitWelp, nothing for it now, bye bye AToW, it was fun while it lasted
>>34530223>>34534917Yea we gunna need a new thread today.>>34534074………By all the gods, anon.
>>34535260This is what you've done, Hexer.I hope you are proud of yourself.
>>34535260It just shows anon loves you, Hex! Think positive!

>>34535383>cripplingly miserableGit faster and we won't have to git sad
The relationship between Hex and his players is strange. Not that I don't like it, but I don't think anyone but maybe Diarca and Chief ever had something similar.
>>34535996It's because any one sane would have dropped this quest ages ago. Only the crazies are left.
>>34536060Then I dearly love all you crazy people.
>>34536102We love you too.
>>34536060I don't know about "crazy", but we're definitely one of the more patient audiences.
>>34536545I definitely know crazy, and nowadays, patient=crazy. ADD and ADHD is the norm.
>>34536661And who do we blame? THAT'S RIGHT! VIDEO GAMES.Err, anyway. This first got shown as 404'd but now it's still here? Weird. Anyway, this thread's done so we'll continue in the next. Any questions so far?inb4> Where were you?Family business this time, not procrastination/lack of focus/realizations of hackery driving me up the walls, though I thought I'd be done sooner.
>>34537101Why is Eva so lewd?
>>34537101How foolish does Eriadne think Maria is after this thread? 90% foolish? Omega-foolish?
>>34537167Lewd? I know not which lewd you speak of. Evangelyne is a fine, upstanding lady that loves to take care care of those in need of guidance.>>34537211Ah but let's not think about that. She probably wonders how Maria manages to dress herself in the morning now!!She mainly wonders how someone could be THIS hyperactive.
