What that means is something I've yet to find out but I'm sure my friends -cause that's what they are- will help me along the way. One of them, a pretty, easy-going, but also kind of strange girl by the name of Sora is currently explaining sweets to the rest of us. These foreigners really have the most amazing things. Or at least it kind of sounds amazing. I wonder if Eriadne would mind travelling the world a little with me if I asked. Probably not, there wouldn't really be a reason but it could be really exciting!>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<Not agai-->>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<I turn back, but there is nobody there. Huh, guess that wasn't Eriadne after all?"Did you just feel that, Sora?" The redhead shrugs."A lil' draft or something? Not sure, felt kinda odd. Why?" I just shake my head. I can't exactly say "I felt this yesterday and then things happend but I'm not sure if they have anything to do with it or not", not can I?"You feelin' anything, north girl?" Noo, stop making me look like even more of a weirdo!!2/?
"Faintly, if that. Maria, did you do anything?" There seems a certain amount of uncertainty in her voice though it is still controlled and soft. I suspect there are few things that really make her worry, but I saw a wholly different side of her after Helena vanished… Speaking of which, she seems a lot more affected than the others. Never really seen her shiver."Uh, no, wouldn't even know where to begin!" Evangelyne looks a me intently, but that doesn't make me miss the presence approaching though the voice is still startling."Hail. Please, if I am allowed inquiry I'd be much obliged". A male voice, young but already very controlled precedes the appearance of a young white-haired boy maybe a year or so younger than myself. By the way he moves it is clear he's had an admirable amount of training though it feels much more overt than, say, the way Pa or Mistress Vivianne do. Though it would be hard to point out the difference if someone asked me. His face is quite useful, and despite the outward display of confidence there seems something slightly unsure about his demeanor. Still, he probably knows how to use that sword he's carrying. Hey, we're not that scary, are we? Ah, but then again, boys grow up much more slowly so that might be an explenation. There is a reason the man is usually older than the woman in a marriage after all. Wait, stop staring, it's really impolite."Oi, what's the matter boy?" Sora has stepped forward, looking down at him in what I could only describe as friendly curiousity.
"L-lady Witch, if you could perhaps be so kind as to point out the location of the post office? Dragonheart has been cut off from its sparkwire connection, thus I came here in order to for message from home. I would be much obliged". Sora shakes her head ruefully."Sorry tha say but I ain't got the faintest. Though if you like we could go look for it together. Dem witches here built this thing crazy complicated so's easy tha get lost y'know". I wish I could be as self-assured or helpful… "Hey I know it I ran by it yesterday so if you want I could show you". Helena's all action again, quickly pushing towards where the two are standing, practically bouncing from to toe to-- a hum sweeps over us. Huh. I suddenly remember back in our room looking at her. She's cute. Why haven't I seen this all this time. Odd. But wait, that's not what this is about at all.The boy nods, though Sora seems a bit crestfallen. Hey, don't feel bad, at least you didn't get a wicked headache. She seemed in really terrible pain back then, and one really can't be expected to know EVERYTHING."If it is no trouble I would accept your guidance, Lady…?""Sora, leave the 'lady' out"."Helena!" "Sora, Lady Helena, if you were to provide your guidance I would be in you debt". "Whoa there boy, ain't you like one of the big honchos in here? No need to get all formal with us"."Lady Sora, politeness is /always/ needed. Besides, I am heir to no holdings and as such not much beyond a warrior". Somehow, that seemed like a practiced speech, though his sincerity shines through.3/?
"Alrighty then. Helena, show the way". Helena looks at Evangelyne, who exhangess a few glances with Sora, then shrugs and nods before taking over Thalia and Erato. What was THAT about?Anyway, they'll probably be fine. Sora knows what she's doing.They're barely out of sight when a certain person I almost forgot rounds the corner."Ohoho, yes, you, person. I remember your face, loath as I am to admit it. You will keep me company as I proceed to my breakfast". The blackhaired girl looks up at me sideways, smiling in a way saying "This and everything else belongs to me and you are only here because I want you to". Though… with her face and height it is kind of hard to take seriously.  Play along Make her say thank you. Ignore her. Other> please wait warmly
...Sora is gonna /ss/ him, isn't she?
>>35401997I'm starting to get the felling you hold back on thread until someone complains at this point Hex.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>35402075>[x] Play alongTime for Chuuni
>>35402075>[x] Play alongChuu2 is best chuu.
>>35402075>[X] Ignore her.Time for Chuuni powered rage.
>>35402075>[x] Play alongTry not to laugh.
>>35402075We can't stay long, we still need to get Eri foodActually Helena can sense Chuuni right, I wonder if she actually knows where the post is or she was just trying to avoid her
>>35402075I wonder if she'll get mad when we immediately ditch her to take breakfast back to Eriadne.
>>35402173She's going to end up following us indignantly
>>35402164>Try not to laugh.>[X] laugh even harder
>>35402179Then she can enjoy getting ignored as well then I guess.
>>35402043>She's cute. Why haven't I seen this all this time.Maria pls.>>35402075>[x] Make her say thank you.Eheheh.
>>35402075[X] Other."Your welcome, even though you're being quite rude!"Don't forget we must bring breakfast for Eridane.
>>35402179That's kinda creepy.
>>35402075Who's she again?
>>35402075> Ignore her.
>>35402043Seems like we will need to support Sora in her goal to get the dragon boy.
>>35402075> Other"Oh, are you lost?"
…I thought people would rage at the faintest hint of het. My opinions just improved.
>>35403059Well to be fair while I don't mind the het, /ss/ is garbage-tier and should be avoided. Hopefully she finds someone older. Though I still don't see what on earth makes her come off as straight other than 'didn't get immediately matched with someone else in shippers' heads' like the rest of our main cast.
>>35403059They met a guy asking for directions. Males existing is not a faintest hint of het.
>>35403059Sora is straight though, it's not like anyone is suggesting Maria date someone that isn't Eri, everyone else can love who they want
>>35403059Really the only serious non-joke shipping is between Eri and Maria. I've always seen Eva and Helena as just something funny to joke about at least.
This guy is going to be PISSED when he realizes that the Sparkwire network is just fucking GONE.>>35403095To be fair, we don't know how old Maria is so he might not be shota aged either.
It's Eriadne's ex.[kaleun intensifies]
>>35403513>I am heir to no holdingsVery unlikely with Eri being in house DeVega and all.
Why did Helena suddenly become noticeable in his presence? >>35403558Maybe she's into poorfags. Joke.
>>35403513Even younger than Maria? Unlikely. Maria even specifically comments that men marry older, after all.I mean, beyond the fact that it's literally a random dude and there's nothing indicating it in the first place.
>>35404074Not even poor he's probably a bastard.
>>35403059>>35404074I trust Hex not to do some lame bullshit.>>35404115He's the result of PLOTSURFING. He might not be something like a boyfriend but he's gonna be relevant.
>>35403513With the way Hex has been spoilering stuff I wouldn't be surprised if she had an Ex or some kind of unrequited love.It doesn't really bother me as long as he doesn't use it to pull Kaleun style faggotry.
>>35403059Neh, I I'm okay with straight stuff but I'd probably be pretty crestfallen if things don't out lovey-dovey between Maria and Eriadne. I'd not lose sleep over it though.
I wonder if Hex realizes that most of us won't bite his head off over this stuff yet.
>>35404737> hex>not as paranoid as Twen and self doubting as AngelicOkay.>>35404647Don't you mean Exabyte style faggotry?

>>35405513Breddy gud anon.
>>35405513That's beautiful, Anon.
>>35401997> Wer nicht schreiben kann, säuft. Wat.
>>35405681Those who can't write drink
>>35405681"Those who can't write, drink" if my gtranslate-fu is correct
>>35404074> Why did Helena suddenly become noticeable in his presence? Dragonbloods have an externalized Deviance aura?
>>35405888Seems restricted to males then.
>>35405918Yea, or maybe even just males with magic. Or maybe it's because Eri's deviance frequency is different than this guy's which got perceived by Helena as Eri being scary.
>>35405513Who is Maverick in the Hexer zone?
Hex, live you still?
>>35407551Yes.>>35404737WELL I HAD MY DOUBTS!Anyway, drinking, counting, writing, thanks for being cool, everyone.
>>35407621That's good. Waiting etc
>>35407621How trappy is dragonboy and how hard does Sora want to dress him up in girl's clothes?
>>35408035Trap fetish a shit.
>>35408035Straight trap a shit
>>35408035Not at all and... not at all. If one were to theoretically get him naked he'd look quite athletic in fact.
>>35407621How hard are we still plotsurfing?
I WANT TO MARRY SORA.
>>35408673ENJOY YOUR NTR AND AIDS FAGGOT
>>35408673Go away, DragonBoy.
>>35408748> implying Sora would cheat
>>35409510>implying redhead swashbucklers aren't the archetypal woman of loose virtue
Sup, just caught up. Is this where we wait?
>>35411229>http://pastebin.com/h7TvK9yxHere's some reading material while you wait. It has most of the lore in it. It's best to start at the bottom.
Sorry if people are tired of it but I just got here, I was really surprised how not-snooty or haughty the guy was given the position of absolute power nobles hold in this world.
>>35411371How often is this updated?
>>35411461I'm thinking about doing it once a week.
>http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/118717158466> Helena> humanChoose one.
>>35411459It's because he has inheritance so he's only a small amount above witches social ladder wise I believe..
>>35411459The leadership seems generally kind of okay-ish for absolute rulers.
>>35411563Yeah it's good to have a setting where the authoritarian rulers aren't automatically evil for once.
>>35411459>>35411535>>35411563>>35411621There is also the fact that a Witch can just challenge a Dragonblood as long as they're both at school it seems. Basically talk shit, get hit. If he pisses off someone who happens to a Cat he's toast.
>>35411716>If he pisses off someone who happens to a Cat he's toastPeople still argue it's best sign.
>>35411773They all have their uses.
>>35411773It's the most devastating one, but I wouldn't want to get to know the kind of person that wields such a thing.
>>35402075> Play alongI'm late.
I wonder if Hex will update before he goes to bed.
Remember how raven-haired priestess was stalking Helena when we got her perspective? And now she suddenly shows up after Helena leaves? Suspicious.
>>35412988There is also the >>35401997>>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<>Not agai-->>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<Bit. Which of course might just be Maria being sensitive to Dragonblood radiation... things. But I doubt it. CONVERGENCE.
>>35405513I'm starting to feel the urge to make spooky scary skeletons parody lyrics next. Since the ride into the Hexer zone never ends.
I'm starting to list off convergence events. Please help me retain my sanity/finish it.> Eva's mom's ex/friend/exfriend taught her the travel spell> Our desire to protect got us a shield spell> the desire to cuddle Eri led to us getting punished which led to more cuddles after we ad to travel to AKAZU's placeAny others?
>>35414272You're trying way too hard to make sense of a plot device that boils down to "convergence lets Hex do what Hex wants"
>>35414396I do silly things when I'm bored. I was supposed to have guests today but they quit on me. So I am sitting here.
>>35414421Guests quit on you, host (QM) quit on you.. You need better company.
>>35414478We'll never quit on them at least.
>>35414272Convergence is also partially responsible for everyone ending up in the right house and witches forming into covens so quickly and making sure senpai notices us later today and everything else.Fate gonna Fate. Maybe chuuni priestess could tell us more about it if we asked, she did say something about sensing the Weave, whatever that is.Posting that whole bit because it is currently relevant.>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…
>>35414551>as I follow the faint pulse like a carrion bird follows a dying feast in the desert…Edgy. As. Fuck. Though I must ask, how sure are we it's not Helena who did something wrong?>>35414478At least with Hex it's cause he's a scatterbrained ball of anxiety. Not so sure about the others.>>35414482Hotly.
>>35414658>Though I must ask, how sure are we it's not Helena who did something wrong?You mean you think she didn't? Helena is a healer. The protector of the Sacred Rest clearly haaates healers, especially supernatural ones.Whether she did something wrong depends on who you ask.
>>35414706>>35414551Didn't we see her in the second dream sequence?
>>35414731>I think that was Sanya? They both have long black hair, don't they?I'm weightless, bodiless, thoughtless. There is nothing but the feeling of rushing emptiness as the thing-that-used-to-be-me zooms through an infinite expanse of patterns that change in time to an unseen will.>Behold the harmonies beyond time<>Behold supernal beauty and infinite woe<>Behold damning salvation and liberating fear<A cage, woven of symbols made of golden light. Inside, a girl, stripped and bare, suspended in the centre by chains of similar make. Her head is slumped forward, long black hair affording her naked chest at least some minimal modesty.She needs my help! The thought lances through me like lightening, and as if in response, my aimless flight carries me just in front of the cage."Hello! Can you hear me?!" The girl shakes her head, still looking down, as if too weak to look up."Not be here… nobody be here…"."I am here, can you hear me?!"She shivers and slowly looks up. Her face is covered in strange markings, but what really shocks me is the pure despair in those half-closed eyes. Suddenly, her gaze seems to focus as she /sees/ me for the first time."You shouldn't be here! Nobody should be here! Leave! LEAVE! LEAVE!"I try to speak, but suddenly I'm far away again, seeing that the cage seems to be the centre of something much larger. I try to get closer again, but a swarm of bats suddenly bears me away.With a small cry, I wake.
>>35414810I meant Helena. What would ATOW be without creepy unexplained unprompted chants?
>>35401997>>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<>Not agai-->>>Sensation. Impression. Presence<<I think we're missing the obvious here. The last time we felt this, we were walking to dinner. Same as now. It could be a ward.
>>35414879A miserable pile of dyke innuendo
>>35414939Pretty sure we were walking AWAY from it on our search? And wouldn't at least Eva have an explanation?
>>35414976If it was a chantseeker thing, Eva couldn't explain shit.
Hes is asleep
Man, coming up with interesting stuff for her mid-section is difficult. Also can't decide what to do with her arms. I know I want a bayonet-staff there.
>>35420934>bayonet-staffA... spear? Give her a proper glaive. She likes glaives.
>>35421002>spearAnon, what are you even...Bayonet-staff is the ONLY way to go.
>>35421036Bayonet-staff or halberd is the only way to go.
>>35420934She could be holding it behind her back?
>>35420934....you're getting better.
>>35421051I guess! Can't forget umbrella-lance either.>>35421065I've thought of that and I used to draw many things that way but it was mostly to save myself from actually trying to draw the thing. Doesn't help with improvement.>>35421082Thanks! I also changed brush settings a bit though I still have a boner for the sketchy style.
>>35420934>Man, coming up with interesting stuff for her mid-section is difficultSteal Talan's uniform stormtrooper armor thing.
>>35421233Could you show a reference? I'm not sure I've ever heard of that.
>>35421268>Could you show a reference? I'm not sure I've ever heard of that.The ex witch in the interlude.http://archive.moe/tg/thread/35226141/#35257511
>>35421389It doesn't really work. Maria only has a medium armor specialization something like a chainmail shirt or gamberson would make more sense for her. also she can't use the gloves or helmet because they interfere with her magic.
>>35421389Oh! Right, her. I knew that!Hmm, that could be really cool on Maria. Since the pic's not her current self. Should have more childlike face for that. I'll see what it looks like.Cheers.
>>35421457>also she can't use the gloves or helmet because they interfere with her magic.> dem implications I guess Talam gave up for good when she donned that thing huh.....
>>35421486She isn't called Talam the Banished for nothing. Giving up her magic probably wasn't her choice.
>>35421679At least she got sick armor and a sexy, sexy boss for her troubles.
>Her goddess IS the deity of the birds and the bees and the things they do to each other. Teaching aside, she would just need to wonder about it and she'd immediately kno-- realize she knows it. It's somewhat like cloud computing. The "Medicine" section of her mind is always synched to Athra without her having to consciously think about it.>As long as she doesn't pay attention to it, she might in good faith assume she doesn't know something, till she pokes around in her head and realizes that she's known it all the time. Must not have impure thoughts about Helena. Must not have impure thoughts about Helena.
>>35421710>Must not have impure thoughts about Helena. Must not have impure thoughts about Helena.Eva pls. Don't be That Northener.
I'm starting worry that we're outgrowing Hex's writing speed.
>>35422364>outgrowing Hex's writing speed.What do you mean?
>>35421710> deconstruction of the Pure Loli genre
>>35422372Well we're at 125 posts and Hex has only done the OP. It's not like you can stop people from talking or something.
>>35422394>Well we're at 125 posts and Hex has only done the OP. It's not like you can stop people from talking or something.Oh that? It happened before a couple times, don't worry about it.
Stop badgering Hexer you guys!!! He doesn't need your help to feel bad about not updating.
>>35422636No we need to badger him hard so he feels forced to update.
>>35422636> not bullying your QM
>>35422647That's my point! His self-esteem is so shit that he feels forced to update whether we say anything or not.
>>35421710I like that take on cleric healing.
>Yulemai, God of intoxication, pleasure, dreams, creative madness and spur-of-the-moment insight. Worshipped by writers, harlots, starting-up business people and hedonists far and wide. "Bringing an offering to Yulemai" is a common expression when referring to the consumption of Opium, Hashish or Alcohol.Clerics of this god must be a hoot.

>>35423849You mean Beta timeline EriadneQuest, because then that would be accurate, beta timeline a shitBut Eri a sweetheart
>>35423849SoraQuest would be endless waifu and plot dodging and generally just not giving a fuck apart from being ~dashing~ and pissing off Eva by simply existing.
Are we 24 hours updateless yet?
>>35424163Dunno. Some anon just wrote out the though of Beta Eriadne it seems
[X] Play along[X] Imply rudeness on her partFight the urge. You've withstood pain like others couldn't dream, you can resist laughing at her strange behavior."That is a big honor. Hey, is your head better? You seemed in a really bad shape yesterday"."What is this, Maria?" Evangelyne looks from me to the girl and back curiously."Oh, Eriadne and I met her yesterday after dinner. She was pretty badly beaten up and--""NOT TRUE!!" My vindictive spark flares. This is just way too rude."You were. You could barely STAND back then if it hadn't been for the others holding you!"She runs in front of us, spreading her arms as a cold presence seems to seep out of the cracks in the walls towards her."You will RESPECT me!! ~Gates of Beyond open to admit a power to crumble stones and rot all hope--""Five Heavens, nine flames, a falling star…" The voice beside me is controlled, but angry. Uh oh, will they duel? Right here and now? From the corner of my eyes I can see Evangelyne draw a something that looks like a piece of paper out of her breast pocket. "Y-you wouldn't dare?!" Evangelyne keeps counting quietly. Huh, it seems time has done this thing where it slows down a lot."Impact Three: Air Bullet!" With a harsh motion her hand whips forewards, there is a thunderous crack, and a second later the black-haired girl is staring up at us teary-eyed, clutching her forehead, half-kneeling on the black-tiled floor.1/2
"You HURT me!! How DARE you hurt me?!" Evangelyne just shrugs before shaking her head ruefully."Bad girls are punished. Good girls are rewarded. It is quite simple". Hey, are you sure this is okay? I mean, whatever she was about to call on was POWERFUL. Though she's a bit young, she probably doesn't know better. Guess the best way is to simply treat her like her age. Usually gods will interfere only when called by their clerics so if we keep her from doing something weird it should work out fine. That cold though, that skin-freezing cold she called. Ah, but come on. You shouted at AKAZU just an hour earlier. Or was it more? Less? Anyway, what matters is that this wouldn't be your first experience with unearthly ire being directed at you, and when the conduit is this small and excitable it just seems much less daunting by comparison."You really should…"Erato has been kind of silent all the way through, but now she speaks, tones even. I'll never figure these out."…do as the Senra says" Thalia concludes, the both of them wearing a mirrored expression of deep displeasure."Insolent fools, the Chosen of Koshari does not cower to base violence!" Oh my, she really likes pushing her luck."Shantak's…"…whisp--". The quietly-spoken joint command is cut short by Evangelyne shaking her head. "Well? What shall it be, young one?" Evangelyne's stepped forward, stretching out her hand and… yes, the younger girl is actually taking it, blushing sullenly while looking to the side.2/3
"I shall spare you for now, morsel, if only because you are associated with one who has been helpful to my cause before. Do not presume this means any sort of friendship between us, your existence is but a candle to be snuffed out at my leisure"."I know, dear. You must be hungry, I know I am". "You are permitted to escort me as well for the occassion". Now talk about a quick change. I mean, I've heard of beating people into being your friends -in a way I've done it a few times as well- but still, that was a quick change anyway.Just then, we arrive at the hall lit by that strange light I've seen in other places.

>>35424364>"Well? What shall it be, young one?" Evangelyne's stepped forward, stretching out her hand and…Evangelyyyyne! Come on, that one was ours!
>>35424883It's a compulsion anon, she can't help it. It's like an alcoholic snatching the last beer.
>>3542488399% of lolis are controlled by 1% of Nee-sans. #OccupyImoutoStreet.

>>35424883She scored the kill though. >>35423469Hopefully they're the cool hedonistic and not the loud slut types.
Inb4 Yulemai loli.
>>35425680She already has a loli and we were on better terms. She was supposed to be bad cop to our good cop.
>>35425880Three. Unless Sora onee-sans the twins permanently. Or maybe it'll be a timeshare thing.
>>35424357>You've withstood pain like others couldn't dreamDo I even want to know? Dese grim overtones cause panic in me.
>>35425987She's just been shot and stabbed and broken a bunch of bones a few times. Nothing too serious.
>>35425987Chill, just a little stabbing and beatings. It's not like her family died or she got raped or something.
>>35426128>Maria got raped when she was younger>this is why she's stuck in PROTECT EVERYONE mode, has such low self esteem and is into women on the basis of them being saferit makes too much sense for comfort.
>>35426207It already got asked an refuted.
>>35426232>>35426207It's like I'm really reading one of those shitty "mature" indie comics!
>>35426232The formulation was odd though.
>>35424378Line up like a good girl.
>>35428155How are you holding up, Hex?
Has warmth been maintained? If so, good, closing and writing. >>35424378> didn't actually include the announcement in the post after all...I mad. Anyway, closing, counting, writing.
>>35430095> didn't actually include the announcement in the post after allDon't worry Hex, it's only 7 hours late!
Does it worry anyone else that Maria had no way to deal with RHP herself? I was thinking she could use AKAZU's fear aura before realizing it wouldn't work on her.
>>35432595Oh, this reminds me.>Ask raven-haired priestess's name.
>>35432595She could use the shield and just hit her in the face with it. RHP seems to have a more direct connection to her god, but she needs an incantation. ...eva's chant this time was strange, and since when do they use paper?
>>35432613Who caaaresss. She's super annoying and not Eriadne.
>>35432613Oh yeah, that's pretty important isn't it
>>35432709>She's super annoying and not Eriadne.Maria seems bemused by her.
>>35432709She's annoying in that cute way animes often are. Haughty loli-clerics best loli-clerics.But we're deep in personal taste territory so yeah.
>>35432810She kinda feels like the most "anime" of the characters, doesn't she?
I seriously wonder how much of this is her and how much is her reflecting her god.
>>35432854That's what happens when a character goes maximum overchuu.I mean, just look at Hex himself, I'm pretty sure he's part anime or something.
>>35432900>I seriously wonder how much of this is her and how much is her reflecting her god.Probably about fifty-fifty, there is no such thing as having powers in AToW and not at least being slightly different from normal humans. Witches have pink blood and Helena can do photosynthesis for crying out loud.
>>35433011>Witches have pink bloodWe don't know that? Talam has pink blood, and she is Not a Witch anymore.
>>35432810She was ready to use a spell to have us respect her - possibly some sort of mind-altering one. Fuck that noise.
>>35432900>I seriously wonder how much of this is her and how much is her reflecting her god.http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/118717158466>>35433084>Talam has pink blood, and she is Not a Witch anymore.Pretty sure she still had some powers. The guy said only a Witch could do the contract.
>>35433091You're welcome to that opinion. I'm more than willing to forgive her.For a more sane opinion, I'd trust Evangelyne's Bunny-powered intuition if I were you. She's the kid expert here.
>>35433263>She's the kid expert here.Even kids that are walking WMDs of questionable sanity?
>>35433407Yes? She definitely acted like it last update. I'll agree that we need more proof to be certain.
>>35433263Hrm, we'll see. Feels like walking on razor's edge though.
>>35433731>Hrm, we'll see. Feels like walking on razor's edge though.Isn't that what AToW is about? Walking on Razor's edge while looking really fucking cute in the process?
>>35433867But this edge seems razorier. Razier.
>>35434889>But this edge seems razorier. Razier.I like Razier. HOLD ON, how will Eva have all four lolis if two of them hate each othe?
>>35435683>Implying Eva can't get them to kiss and make up
>>35435683The RHP falls.
>>35435683I'm looking forward to seeing how that plays out, yes. As much as I like chuuni priestess, I can't not take Helena's side if forced to choose.I'm guessing she's only getting close to Maria because she thinks it'll make Helena fall somehow. She's wrong, of course.
>>35435808>I can't not take Helena's side if forced to choose.That's the crux of it really Helena is just too useful to us as a cleric for her healing powers. RHP making her fall is something to be avoided at all costs.
>>35435876I agree with your conclusion but detest how you reached it. Friends are not our friends because they are useful.
>>35436317Well of course I was just talking on a purely Meta stand point. Throwing one of the original nakama under a bus is completely out of the question.
I hope Hex-chan stays warm while he sleeps.
>>35438539I'm sure he does, anon
>>35438752But is he warm enough?
24 hour mark has been reached.
>>35449359I believe in Hex's ability to update 2 hours after I sleep.
>>35449646Well hopefully he pulls through soon or we may be in the land of CCQ.
>>35449950>CCQNo clue what that isCQC is Close Quarter Chuuni isn't it, though?
>>35450004Hex's last quest Convict Cyborg Quest.He left a thread with no update for three days before moving it to akun and abandoning it.
>>35450021>abandoning it.Well he did make one updatetwo months later...I think his current plan is to get AToW to a good point and then write more CCQ
>>35450039It's a pity he's backsliding so hard all of a sudden.He was doing pretty good for a while there.
>>35450046Indeed.He just needs to stop editing while he's writing, write out a chunk, then come back to edit any errors out like an hour later and post it instead of staring at it for 12 hours beating himself up over it
>>35450056To be honest judging form some of his Ask.fm answers he's starting to just give up.
>>35450039I doubt it. He seemed pretty hype about that dragon-noble AToW spinoff though.CCQ is shit anyway.
>>35450073>CCQ is shit anyway.From what I've heard about it it does seem way too edgy for my tastes.
>>35450069His brain's broken. Don't put any stock in what he says.
>>35450091Well if he can't even stay under a day anymore we may be seeing then end of cute witches.
>>35450078My personal problem with it is that it seems like Hex never even wanted to run it. Just got talked into it by QTG.
>>35450104Was AToW his idea then? I only started following him with this quest.
>>35450073>CCQ is shit anyway.Fuck you too anon>>35450078>From what I've heard about itIt is not edgy at all, and if you read it you would know instead of believing the L&M that anons spew all over the place.>>35450104>>35450111They were both his idea and pitch, only reason he was reluctant to run CCQ at first was because he had no experience running a quest.
>>35450111It's seriously depressing to think that he put this much effort into worldbuilding without enjoying it.
>>35450123That's true it's not often you see a quest with this much thought and effort put into it.
>>35450111Nah. Hex started this on his own volition.
>>35450123>without enjoying it.Keep on spreading those lies anon.Go back to the /qtg/ if your going to be a faggot.
>>35450134Well that's good to hear at least.As a side note are you guys alright with setting 280 as the cut off for just bumping until the thread autosages? If it takes Hex another 12 minimum to make a post we're probably not getting one this thread anyway.
>>35450104Then you might want to actually talk to the guy sometime instead of believing the cesspit of lies because you are way off the mark.
>>35450143Anon I don;t think you really understood what he was trying to say there. You should calm down a little.
>>35450152I understand exactly what he's saying, and its all just conjecture and poorly made conclusions doing nothing but creating rumors which are not going to help Hex in any way.
Not quite kill though I feel a lil' like that. Fell asleep at four, woke up at eight and then slept again till ten fifteen and felt kind of tranc-y since then. Sorry for the blog.Anways, let's see wht can be done.>>35450039>I think his current plan is to get AToW to a good point and then write more CCQPretty much this, ya. I want to get amout 6000 - 7000 more words in, then put AToW into hiatus for two weeks while running CCQ every other day, then run the two side by side.Sorry for making everyone worry.
>>35450164>Sorry for making everyone worry.The silence is the worrying part, just jump in and make a short post letting us know whats up and we'll continue sitting by the bonfire keeping warm.
>>35450160Read it again>>35450123He was just saying it is depressing for someone to put a lot of effort into something while not enjoying it.He didn't say that Hex doesn't enjoy AToW.
>>35450176You just contradicted yourself anon.
>>35450172>>35450164And why does it keep stripping my tri-- wait, I think I set it to that because it kept staying on where it wasn't wanted.>>35450175Yes, that too is a problem for me.
>>35450164>running CCQ every other day,I'm sensing a flaw here. Don't set unachievable goals.
>>35450187He can totally do it if he sits down and doesn't let himself get distracted, he's done it in the past with CCQ and Hexer Quest, and in AToW.Though its been so long it might be clouding anons memories...
>>35450183How?Saying that it's depressing to think that someone puts effort into something they don't like isn't saying that they don't actually like it.
>>35450187Then let's say "updating CCQ every other day". Which is still fuck-off slow, but decent for an Akun Quest.>>35450197Also this.
>>35450200>into something they don't like> they don't actually like it.Still doing it.
>>35450200Please stop defending my post. I don't care.
>>35450214>it's depressing to think that>to think that>think that>think
>>35450218> Eva life advice.jpg
Now is the time! Quick, pounce into the can-opener's window-face thing!"Boss, are you sure about this?"Of course I'm sure! Don't make me spray you, fool!"To be honest, he seems as though he's back home. And he left some tuna cans open too."He's just going to bumble around and do that wallowing business of his, we both know that!"What I know is that there's a tuna can that doesn't smell of poison, and it's been twenty twilights since I've had wet food. I'll see you some other day, boss."Bah! Herding cats, I tell you! I'll do this myself!DYNAMIC ENTRY!!OMGTHEZAPANDTHELIGHTSANDTHEEXISTENTIALTORMENT!!!... Where am I? This place seems floaty... Hey where did you people come from!? And why do you look like you understand me? You can-openers never did before!Actually, wait! This makes everything easier!As the leader of the FFFF, I now declare this quest to be subdued under my velvet paw! My first command is: instruct me where to go, so I might reignite the ancient wars between my progenitor and his foe!..You seem a bit confused, let me explain the situation. See, I'm surrounded by.. what I can only describe as night sky. Kind of floaty too. Far away, I can spot a garden of some variety. I'm sure I can lay waste to the wee children of the dragon there. However, there is also a mansion to the other side. I don't know if I can hunt anything there, but who knows what I might find.So I command again, thee who sit on chairs in excess of your kind's average. Advise me where to go!Or else I'll puke a furball in this thread.
>>35450420Oh no, anons are catching Hexer too, now!
>>35450420>Advise me where to go!Go find a friendly helpful Dragon, I'm sure they can be of assistance.
>>35450430Is this your first hostile takeover, can-opener? Have you not read the news? We, the Fluffy Feline Fighting Force (we keep renaming ourselves to avoid profiling, see?) have decided to stop taking hostages and actually invade this quest, in the hopes of expediting our goals: quick updates, rekindling glorious war, and unpoisoned tuna.You are either with us, or against us! Now advise!
>>35450446There are no dragons here, only stars. And two places far away. You'll never become an advisor to anyone this way.
Cat ISIS pls go.
>>35450520Yes, that's what I'm trying to decide!
>>35450526You're the worst advisers in wherever I am! Fine, I'll just go in the direction my tail's pointing...The mansion room it is! And since there's a long walk ahead, I'm going away for a short while!Because seriously, I'm going to have to lie down here every other time. Long walk.
>>35450662>MansionAhahahaha... I suppose you're going to have fun, ahehe.
>>35450966Not now, pundit. I'm having my beauty sleep.
>>35451032Of course of course.
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/118782369858Why would someone ever think that fan fiction set in the future of a quest was ever cannon.
>>35451883It was some dumb anon from QTG trying to convince someone else of his L&M.
>>35451899>L&MI don't know what that means sorry.
>>35451883Wait there are people who want Hex to become the Kaleun?What a waste of potential.
>>35452122>Clapistan awakens>/u/boats appear on the shore
>>35452147Hi you must be new to AToW. Most people are /u/ here.
>>35452147Hex pulling a Kaelun is literally a requirement for the fic to work.
>>35452167"Most people" need to go have a fap somewhere else. Just give it a rest with your cutie gee culture shit already.
>>35452185No, the players could choose to back off and it might work. Wait no, that's still retarded because Maria cheating is even unlikelier than Pa turning out to be evil.
>>35452196Fight to good fight anon. People liking things you don't shouldn't exist. I believe in you.
>>35452167>Most people are /cute/ here.FTFY.
>>35452234>Mariadne not cuteYou need better opinions.
>>35452244Fuck off /u/shitter
>>35452234>>35452244Sssh. Let's agree that everyone is cute and cute when they're together. Even the twins.
>>35452274You're in the wrong thread.>>35451653
>>35452277Twins a creepy.
>>35452216It's not the fact they like things I don't, that's inevitable. It's the fact they keep bringing it up whenever they have the chance. You people made up evidence in your heads that supports the notion that the cast is totally gay for each other, and now you've convinced yourself this is a quest about lesbians. Fuck off already. >>35452244I'm the one who coined the term Mariadne (as far as I know), it wasn't intended as a name for a lesbian relationship between the two.
Keep it quiet, I'm trying to dream here.
>>35452313>the notion that the cast is totally gay for each otherThere's only been a serious push for Eri and Maria the other stuff is just joking around.Stop getting butthurt over people talking about stuff they enjoy in the quest.
>>35452346dream of warmth
>>35452313Maaan. I know the point you're trying to make but still.
>>35452313At lest they aren't telling people to fuck off for talking about stuff they like.
I wonder if Eva had a big loli collection back home as well.
>>35452350>Stop getting butthurt over people talking about stuff they enjoy in the quest.Well it just so happens the "stuff they enjoy" is something they imagine to be true. It's on par with slash fanfic in terms of merit, and made all the more obnoxious due to your constant pushing.
>>35452385It's something that Hex aid is an option if people want to go for it. The fact that you've decided that it's impossible puts you on the same level anyway.
>>35452406>WE BULLIED HEX INTO EET!! WEEE!!! SUCK IT :3
>>35452416Anon, getting mad at people for being delusional based on your own delusional reasoning is really silly.
And anti-/u/ vs. /u/ autosages the thread. Whatever.
>>35452429Going keep on forcing your interpretation like it's the only valid one.it only makes you look like a hypocrite.
>>35452448That's exactly what I just said, anon.
>>35452444It was bound to happen eventually with how much the quest has been growing.
>>35452428>>35452444War is inevitable. Such is the way of those who war for the most important matter of all, the War of Sex.Maybe I should get going to that mansion soon, my advisor pannel is getting noisy... Why can't I ever get good helpers..?
>>35452474Merge with the stars into a stained-glass fractal god.
>>35452444I just wanted to read a about cute girls doing creepy things. Why are they fighting, anon? ;_; Does who they like really matter if they are gay or straight? It's just supposed to be cute. I don't get it.
>>35452495Because trolls, anon.
>>35452464>growingI thought it was slowly shrinking?
>>35452513It appears to be growing sideways, much like the belly of my former comrade when he's stuffing his face with tuna.
>>35452495Because as a quest grows larger with a primary /u/ or no/u/ fanbase eventually some one will show up who it either militantly /u/ or anti-/u/ and they proceed to shit everything up as hard as possible.>>35452513We've had quite a few anons going over the last week in the thread and CutieG gives a lot of exposure. CutieG is also were the Militant /u/ and anti-/u/ reside as well.
>>35452464>>35452513>>35452536I'm pretty sure this is a result of boredom and probably irritation at update speeds.Same reason for all the lewd talk. You know what they say about idle hands.
>>35452556That can be a factor as well. The slow pace is causing some of the /u/ and no/u/ followers to militarize and go for each others throats.
>>35452444>>35452464>>35452537I'll never understand why people feel so strongly about it anyway.
>>35452580I don't get it either. Especially anti-/u/ anon it seems he just wants cute girls doing cute things so I don't see why it affects him so much.
>>35452575So it's like the situation before the first world war?
>>35452556>>35452575Not even, here's what happened.>Anon bored of waiting for Hex update, doesn't want to bump thread and/or talk about it here, mentions that future-fic in QTG in an innocuous manner.>Some brief polite discussion of it>Some incredibly bad troll sees a chance to make people mad, tries to claim Hexer said it was canon>QTG dies, troll can't keep it up, goes into the thread insteadTa-da, we have this incredibly obvious shit-stirring situation.
>>35452596Cute girls doing cute things is not the same as cute girls carpet-munching.
>>35452612Sounds like the cause was boredom to me.
>>35452628>cute girls carpet-munchingIf those carpets belong to other cute-girls, its still a cute thing.
>>35452608hahaha I guess so. It's a real shame because normally everyone is really polite here even if they disagree on /u/>>35452612It's a shame this kind of stuff happens.>>35452628But they're not mutually exclusive. There is no need to get so riled up about it.
>>35452632The anons being bored aren't (necessarily at least) the same anons starting and continuing the argument though.
>>35452668I'm pretty sure if Hex was posting and they had something else to talk about they wouldn't bother. Since this happens on a pretty frequent but occasional basis.
>>35452612Makes sense. Since we're Saging anyway, how should we add to the party? Hex has pretty blatantly hinted at Eri being Bat and Sora cat so we'd have the complete set if one of the twins is Snake.I suggest we get Mireille to hook us up with a Witchbreaker or two for fast anti magic CQC and a dragonblood for quick striking.
>>35452740Hex was talking to an anon in the ask.fm about having the current 7 girls as a core party with a selection of side members if that makes sense. I assume they would be RHP, Sanya, Dragon boy and maybe Mireille at this time.
>>35452740I'd rather see what kind of quest this is before optimizing for fights that might not even happen often.
>>35452740Sora doesn't seem angry or angsty enough for Cat.
>>35452740>Sora catWhile this is rather flattering, I fail to see your reasoning. Then again, I'm admiring the firmament.
>>35452773Well the party stuff includes a fair chunk of non-combat stuff i the first place with Eva being an Artificer and Eri's caste being related to finding and holding knowledge.
>>35452690>I'm pretty sure if Hex was posting and they had something else to talk about they wouldn't bother.Anon, while there are plenty of reasonable arguments against the yurifags to be made, the tone and timing of this argument makes it obvious that was a troll. Why would a troll care whether Hex posted an update or not?
>>35452808I'm saying the troll was bored and is preying on other player's boredom.
>>35452808The timing of the Ask.fm answer really points to some troll showing up waving the /u/ or anti-/u/ flag just to start shit with the opposite side in the quest.Normally Everyone here gets along even if they don't share the same opinion on yuri.
>>35452769Mireille herself? Sounds like an amusing means of getting Eva endlessly annoyed because she's an adult. Who she can't even bully with magic because monk.
>>35452808Well the fact that an anon in the general was going on about how the fanfic was cannon before we had someone here welling about how /u/-boats are invading anf that yuri was non-cannon shitposting is pretty suspect.
>>35452892It may just be the same guy from earlier.
Oh. Thought I was the only one left in this thread. Though this conversation is… not cute.>>35452769Ooh, can we train Sanya to use her doomgaze at will?! CAN WE CAN WE CAN WE?!
>>35453020If we can get her to stop cutting herself for a little bit.
>>35453026So...that's a 'no', then.
>>35453026I'm sure Eva could do something.
>>35453048Probably. Her edge is 3 atoms wide.That's pretty edgy.
>>35453057That's literally edgy enough to cut through individual molecular bonds.
