>>35678385Usually there's an update with the OP isn't there?
>>35678431Yes. Usually, but usually I don't have to reformat things so it doesn't get torn to pieces. Cutting the OP out soothes my formatting autismo so, please, wait warmly for a minute longer.CHARACTER LIMITS ARE THE DEVIL.
I am Helena the chosen of Athra, Witch of house, but I'm not really used to the second thing yet. It's not that important, really, because Athra is still the best and I have way much time to get used to it anyway. I just met some girl who is way strange but hey, she notices me and even though she somehow got through the locked doors she's pretty friendly in a kind of sleepy, dreamily happily sort of way. Oh she's still looking at me, bright eyes -are eyes supposed to have this color with normal people- droopy but but way intense. Hey, she's probably friend material, so best to not be all mistrusting and stuff. I nod, slipping deeper into the hot water. Ooh that's more like it. "Sure, you can come here if you want!" The girl comes closer, and even though it's way rude to spy I can't help myself. Her skin is cleaner than mine, small feet with red-painted nails -how exotic- leading to strong legs that are probably used to running a lot. Her hips are thinner than mine and sashay with every step, her swishing reddish orange hair that almost reaches down to them only making it more obvious how young-looking her heart-shaped face is. Fascinating!Still, there's something like, really experienced in those half-closed eyes, like she's seen way more stuff than should be possible. It's kind of interesting because you can't make out what exactly she's seeing. Oh I need to stop staring. Maybe warn her. "Just tell me if the water's too hot for you and stuff I kind of like it hotter but if it's not okay just tell me and… is it too hot? Does it hurt?" She pokes her toes into it, flinches, then steps in. Her face has some really strange expression, now, kind of like pain but also kind of happy? Okay some thing I really just don't understand. She nods "Way too hot but…" I move to stand up, but she waves a hand and I stop. "…that can be good too". 1/?
>>35678506>"…that can be good too".Wait what.
No I don't get this at all but she has to know what is good for her, that is how we learned it at least. Always care for those who can't care for themselves, but be okay with those who can and support them in the things they want to do. It's really hard sometimes but maybe I'll learn! We're just being kind of quiet for a little while. It's strange, but just being around her makes me feel way calm and kind of dreamy. It's interesting, but I'm pretty sure I'm okay with it!! The water's just great like that, and the scent of honey that seems to hang in the air makes it only better! Hey wait, I wanted to do this way faster. Senra is going to be way mad at me when she finds out how long I was slacking in here. Uooh, not good at all, not good in the littlest bit. It will probably be okay but if it's not it would be terrible and who knows how long everything will take and then they'll look at her badly because of me!"Oh sorry I have to go already please if you have some soup it would be great because I'm in a hurry but thanks anyway if you don't". She just grins and takes a glass bottle from the edge of the basin. Hey when did that get there? Probably just got there because she needed it. Yea, that makes sense. The water splashes as she comes closer, one hand still holding her wet towel in place -kind of strange to be so underdressed compared to her- while the other holds the bottle out in front of her until she's right beside me. "Hey, if you won't mind and stuff it might be cozy if I help ya get ready, know what I mean?" She tilts her head to the side, blowing one of her cherry bangs out of her face lazily. Is that honey like scent coming from her? Hmm. Yea, it might! I kind of half nod, confused. "Uhmm sure, I mean, help me how?" She puts a bit of the liquid soap -looks like soap at least, if pearly white and goopy- on her hand, then looks at me expectantly again.2/?
>>35678597Maybe she's a masochist.
Oh, my hair? "Sure, if it's no trouble, that would be kind of nice really". She grins and makes me turn around so my back is turned to her. "You're a pretty one, like really". Her words sort of distant, and I feel myself blush as her fingers begin to do slow circles on my head, going from front and back and left and right. Eeeeh~~~, pretty!! And that actually feels really, really nice. Of course I can do something a little bit like that but she's just way good at this.The girl behind me is singing now, a song that makes me think of endless skies and shimmering diamonds and yellow whales drifting through the ocean. It's kind of hard not to hum along, the melody is just kind of catchy and interesting like that. Soon the bathroom walls echo the melody and it feels almost like being in a temple.Say Tell her I'm not that pretty. Say thanks. Return the compliment. OtherDo Let her continue, this feels great. Stop her, who knows what she wants. Run away. Other>>35678597All shall be revealed in due time.Going to need to pause here since I took too long and ended up writing the majority thirty minutes before the thread.

I still believe Hex will return to us one day.I have not lost faith.
>>35681296I don't know, there seems to be some weird influence going on.
>>35678732Oh I'm somehow back in time to vote, maybe.>[x] Return the compliment.>[x] Let her continue, this feels great.It's just a hair-wash, no need for paranoia.
>>35684578I dunno, there is this whole thing with getting in somehow and getting past Helena' defenses way too easily and shit smells funny.... I don't know... Yes I used to play Dran quests.
>>35684592Even if it wasn't 100% fine, Hex wouldn't do anything too bad.
>>35684592>Yes I used to play Dran questsNo kdding, I still do.We just got raped for using the knock 'for business' on a fairy pondthese feels way more blatant
>>35684675>I still do.Do you enjoy being a battered spouse?
The only thing Helena fears is RHP who is too chuuni and gung ho for her own goddess to be safe for Helena to be around.
[X] Tell her I'm not that pretty.[X] Return the compliment.[X] Let her continue, this feels great.Hey if it feels so good it can't be bad, right? I'm way sure that makes sense and the clerics back home -wait this is home now, well old home maybe then- would agree! So I just hum along with her before remebering what she said. Uooh, too dreamy. "Thank you, our bodies are gifts by the gods though… heeeh, I'm not that pretty. You are though, like really mature and stuff, you know? Real woman-like!" She laughs, a soft, cooing sound that somehow makes me think of some large fuzzy animal. Ha! Funny thougth that, but really I shouldn't laugh now or she'll think I'm like way way too weird. Her hands play down my neck -eeeh, I didn't know necks could even feel that nice-- and begin to press some spots where it meets my shoulder. "Augh, that hurts!!" It really does, like there's way too much tension in there. I didn't even know you COULD hurt back there. Hm, though my Knowledge says yes. Really, I need to use it mo-- aaaahhhhh this is way too much!! I try to get away from her, but she softly holds me in place with my other hand. Her tone is even softer now. 1/2
"Ey, just like breathe in and out real slow for me, kay? Relaxed and easy, it's gonna feel real nice soon". I nod, weakly, and obey, and hey the pain is already getting way less! This is super awesome. "Feels better?" I just nod. The spot is a little sore, but everything around it is relaxing super well. "Want me to go on? We can stop if you don't like it and stuff". I just shake my head. It's strange and hurts, but like, in a good way, if that makes sense. She presses a spot just between my left shoulder blade and spine next, which hurts even more but at now I know what to expect. "Just like that, you're doing really well. Just in n' out. You're like a natural learner, hmm". Ha! It's bad to be proud, but maybe just a little is okay? After all, even my mind is Athra's gift, so being proud of it is to be proud of her. That can only be good. Her touches wander all the way down my back, then up again and to my arms. By the end of it, everything seems to be swimming in and out of my eyes, the bathroom and her voice both blurry and swimming."Was that nice?" I nod, blinking.Do Get out of there. Talk maybe a little more. OtherSay Thank you Can we do that again? Do you want to meet my Senra? Other
>>35684842>[x] Talk maybe a little more.>[x] Where did you learn to do that?>[x] Do you want to meet my Senra?On the one hand, doubt.jpg. On the other she's been nothing but nice so far.

>>35684842>>35684842>>35684891> Just like that, you're doing really well. Just in n' out. You're like a natural learner, hmm". Ha! It's bad to be proud, but maybe just a little is okay? Praising someone for how smart and gifted they are for properly managing to follow instructions given by the therapist is actually a pretty common strategy in hypnotism and NLP. The real world kind not the mindless zombie variety.
>>35684949>Just like that, you're doing really well. Just in n' out>Praising someone for how smart and gifted they areAlso a sex thing

It's just unfair, this raises the number of Eva's lolis to FIVE, while everyone else doesn't have a single one.
>>35685130Please support Maria in her endeavor to befriend the most dangerous of lolis.that's gotta be worth a score multiplier.and that would also increase Eri's score via the transitive property of imoutos.
>>35684934Why is Helena so fat?
>>35685288>>35685224I want to bully her for being a fatloli.
>>35685301That's not allowed anon. You don't want to go to jail do you?
>>35685301You can't, bullying people get's you beat up by their super tough WitchGuard friend
>>35685354> implying she'd notice
>>35684842>> Time to finish up>> Do you want to meet my Senra?I'm thinking that the heat is starting to get to her. I'm just going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say the girl isn't seducing or hypnotizing her.
>>35685415Don't underestimate Maria's bully-dar.
>>35685447If she's seducing her would that be so wrong? Girls just wanna have fun.
>>35685567She's also, like, ten or something. Even if she has hips like none other.
>>35685623They're the same age or at least Helena thinks so.
>>35685668> painted nails at that age
[warmth increases]I'm sure Senra will like our new addition.
>>35685567That depends on if Shining Lady Athra approves. I don't want to accidentally make Helena fall.
>>35684842> Talk maybe a little more.> Thank you> Can we do that again?> Do you want to meet my Senra?
>>35687076> god not liking girl's loveSurely you jest!
>>35684842>[x] Talk maybe a little more.>[x] Can we do that again?Time for corruption!
>>35688596>corruption!Helena is pure!
>>35688621You misunderstand. Helena is going to corrupt the other girl. With pureness.
>>35688658She already did Kino, physical escalation and starting NLP with her, I don't think she's going to get any purer. No negging because that doesn't work girl on girl unless the other is of obviously higher social standing.
>>35689245Okay, sorry, my knowledge is pretty low. What did all of that mean?
>>35689300http://www.pualingo.com/kinesthetics-kino/http://www.pualingo.com/kino-escalation/Basically she began touching us, then used that as an invitation to touch us more The neck is an erogenous zone and she went all the way to our butt and arms which you guessed it right are also erogenous.. NLP is a technique developed from hypnotism. She taught us to relax despite pain and we obeyed. Negging is making the girl's self esteem go down with a critical comment then praising her for something else. Either I'm paranoid or Hexer's habit of over research played into this too.
Awaken the Hex!
>>35689651Does gaining access to that knowdge via All-Communion with a god make it more or less creepy? I cant decide.
>implying Hex would put PUAshit in his questAnons please stop reading too much into things.
>>35691650Why wouldn't he?
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/119248623938Is this the face of martial supremacy?
>>35691701It's socially frowned on... like a lot of things that made it into this quest.damn it
>>35691745Someone post the time Maria used it at dinner, please?
>>35691758>like a lot of things that made it into this quest.Like what?>damn itWhat?
>>35691701Have you seen how much he worries about being misogynistic?>>35691782Mind altering techniques really.
>>35691701>A: Because most PUA stuff doesn't work outside of the cultural reality of the modern world, and certainly this setting doesn't seem to have the requirements for fostering this kind of approach.>B: Because it'd get people autistically sperging about it.>C: Because it's an overwhelmingly 'male' kind of approach to acquiring sex, so it makes little sense for a woman to use it.>D: Because as previously mentioned, it's a means to and end and said end is sex, which is both too lewd for Hex in general, and too lewd for a little girl specifically, therefore she has no reason to use PUA techniques>E: Because you need to have a pretty cynical view of the world to be willing to subscribe to PUA ideas and techniques, which clashes with the general world-building and tone of the quest and its characters.I'm sure I could think of other reasons.
>>35691805The little girl being a cleric of a sex god of some sort would solve most of thse problems. Just saying.
>>35691798>Have you seen how much he worries about being misogynistic?I can't ever tell if he's jokingly worried, or worried and trying to make it look like a joke.
>>35691842He's genuinely worried, as you should expect of someone with anxiety problems.
>>35691836If you're talking about Helena she's the follower of a fertility goddess those are two different things.
>>35691836>mostIf by most you mean one (D), and that one only in setting, but not the fact that Hex seems wisely unwilling to make things lewd - then yeah, sure it does.
>>35691836Her approach seems way too friendly and non intrusive for that. Or maybe Hex is deconstructing the cliche.>>35691873No, he's talking about the unknown girl.
>>35691879> wiselyBut anonoooooooon!! What would a little lewdness hurrt?!
>>35691867...on misogynie central 4chan?
>>35691929Welcome to the Hexer zone.
>>35691879>If by most you mean one (D), and that one only in setting,No, a sex god feeding her information that works in this particular situation solves A, C, the in-universe part of D, and E.
It's funny because AToW is how I think you should handle a politically incorrect setting. It exists but it's not treated as either good or bed from a meta perspective. It's just a different world with different values and the strongest magical realm is white hair.
>>35691986It's probably because it's not so much politically incorrect and politically different.
>>35692024I'm 99% sure that if you described the society this quest takes place in on tumblr or whatever, you'd get called politically incorrect.
>>35692041>tumblrNot exactly the best place to go looking for the normal humans political opinions.Also gay marriage is legal.
>>35691985I would explain all the ways that's false but I don't want to derail the quest even more.
>>35692065>Also gay marriage is legal.BRB Ask.fm
>>35692100It's already been asked before. The goddess of law decided that it was legal so it is. Also disobeying the goddess of law and stopping her law from being used gets Judge Dreadd priests sent to your town.
>>35692120> judge dredd marrying two star struck lesbians in frilly white clothesThe best mental image.
If this was a cleric, it was probably one of Talari because of the lockpicking thing. Maybe the goddess of locks skills extend to giving massages as a way of unlocking tension?At least if it was one of the main pantheon.
>>35692486I don't know, someone from Talari would probably be more chuuni.
Night night, Hex!
>>35691773>>34554134>>34554134>>34554134>Dutifully I sit back down, ears burning. Goddess, but my entire face must be flushed. Hmmm. NOPE, here goes hope Evangylne didn't pick up on that. Look away already, this is all your fault! Sometimes I wish I could just hate people to d-- don't complete that thought, me, you shouldn't even have BEGUN thinking that. Shame on you, she's just amused, and really, who wouldn't be? Right. Besides, I'm a Witch now -or at least becoming one- so it's really important to watch my thoughts. Something in my look seems to have betrayed what I was thinking though, as Evangelyne almost chokes on a piece of carrot and quickly goes on to being particularily interested in the patterns in her wheat. That really shuldn't feel so satisfying. I'm just being awful now. Control. I need to learn more control. I forgot that she literally thought "I wish I could hate her to death".
[X] Do you want to meet my Senra?[X] Talk some more, names, where did she learn that etc[X] Can we do that again?[X] HurryingOh I'll need to hurry. Before I can say something though she speaks again. "Hold still for a bit, kay? S' only gonna take a minute and stuff". Hey, she has to know I really gotta hurry! "Uhm sorry, I really need to go or Senra will be mad an--" I try to object, but she cuts me off. "Even better, this will be quicker then". The water splashes and out of the corner of my eyes I can see her making a sign."Flaming blade of eastwind's grace, from water's curse deliver us through the might of thy holy breath--" the rest of the spell is said way too quickly to make out. Aww, sometimes it's just way easy to forget how much there is still to learn. Uooh! A hot stream hits my neck and I turn just in time to get another one to my face. That makes her laugh, but at least she swallows it quickly. "Ey, hold still for a lil' longer, gunna be done back here real quick". I nod, amazed because my hair dries real quick with that method. After maybe a minute she's done. "Yo, just a little, gunna make sure ya don't get no tangles n' stuff". I feel her fingers rake through my now dry hair again. She twirls a bit around her finger, then--- aahh, pulls, though it doesn't hurt too bad after the first shock. "W-what are you doing?", I ask, hoping it didn't come out too squeaky. She doesn't stop, but at least answers "If you put a hot iron into your hair and wrap it around it kind of like, gets a better shape. Used to do it with coal back home though now that I'm like a witch and stuff this is way more cozy, don't cha think?" Hmmm, that feels like it could make sense. Didn't really do too much of this adult woman stuff at the temple though of course we were told to always keep clean and tidy, like flowers themselves.1/?> sorry, had to start over and just wrote that in the last 20 minutes

"Pheeww, all done and set up~~~ Uhm you still in a hurry?" She looks at me questioningly, then stands up on the steps leading into the basin and stretches our her hand towards me, other one still on the soaked towel wrapped around her body. I nod. "Yea way in a hurry". I grasp the outstretched hand. That was a good idea cause everything goes all spinny the moment I stand up. The girl looks at me with what could either be amusement of worry or both. "You okay?" I nod but say nothing, biting my lower lip and just put my mind into slowly stepping out and onto the wet greenish tiles without suddenly falling over and looking silly. As soon as she's done though I take a towel of my own and begin to dry off the rest of me hastily. She shrugs, turns her back to me and unwraps herself. Hm her shape is really aesthetic, just as I thought. The goddess has really blessed her and she doesn't even know it. In the middle of her lower back is a small stylized bat. Oh, that reminds me I don't know any but Senra's totems yet. "Whatever happened to being in a hurry?" She half half-turns her head to me and winks but doesn't stop raking through her reddish hair. Right, I really should stop staring and actually do something this isn't a good habit at all, even if it's admiring the Lady's gifts to others.2/?
Really a cleric needs to be more disciplined and be a good example to others, everything else would just be giving off a bad image of her and that's just way wrong. Just going to towel of really quickly and… oh right. I look over to the bundle of new clothes I brought with me, then the crumpled official unfirm. Ggh, decisions decisions. Oh no, no going back now!! I slip into a new pair of small clothes, then put on my new outfit. Hmm, something is missing… right. I Remember and put the last part of my new look onto my head with a smile. All set! Looks like my new friend is done too, so… oh yes!"Do you want to meet my Senra? She's really nice and you could get along well?" Please let her say yes. She nods. "Sure, she might be cozy. Nice look by the way". I nod, more confident. I'm sure the others will like it too. Right, one last thing. "What's your name?" She bows, her hair falling almost into her face."Liliana of House Antioch, chosen of Yulemai… at your service". 3/?> please wait warmly
>>35703042> even if it's admiring the Lady's gifts to others.N-no homo.
>>35703140There's only two types of women: Lesbians and bisexuals. Even assuming that's wrong, women checking out other women's attractiveness is something even the straightest will do especially when they're single. Bluh, let's just say Hexer's done his research, is a girl like XS says or has a SO who shares things like that.
>>35703049>"Liliana of House Antioch, chosen of Yulemai… at your service".>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.This girl is dangerous
>>35703205No anon, this girl knows how to party.
>>35703049We always wait cozily Hex. Like the Senra.Looking forward to finding our what her outfit's like.
>>35703222I get the feeling it's super lewd from Liliana's reaction.
>>35703205Well, Yulemai obviously isn't Slaneesh or Helena would be doing more than just getting her hair combed.
>>35703231Where did she react to it? I can't find anything.
>>35703259She just said it was a nice look and well chosen of Yulemai and all.
>>35703049Liliana is a nice name, I'm sure we can be friends with her!
>>35703231>>35703259She just called it nice.
>>35703271She did say it was a nice look, but there was nothing indicating lewdness in her phrasing, tone or context at all. And she didn't compare it to Yulemai at all.
>>35703205Not necessarily. Yulemai seems to be Dionysus + Morpheus, and those weren't evil. Maybe the reason they got along together so well is because their gods domains are related.

>>35703576I already said this in QTG(90% sure you're the same dude) but Hex's setting has always been matter-of-fact about not-"apprpriate" shit. Calm down.
How cozy are you right now, anons?
>>35704775I'm always cozy anon.
>>35704775Cozy status: blanket and warm cup of cocoa.
Liliana and Eriadne will not get along well.>>35703576Did you honestly think there would be no one but our friends here?And did you not stop to consider that the goddess of dreams and pleasure might have a vested interest in helping a deeply lucid dreamer such as Maria to rescue one dream-trapped, debased, anguished soul in bondage to her own suffering?You are short sighted and terribly touchy.
>>35705074>Liliana and Eriadne will not get along well.Why would Eri mind Liliana at all?
I want to smoke a bowl and listen to Helena sing with Liliana. Is that bad?
>>35705547If she thinks Eva is a corrupting influence, what will she think of Liliana?Not getting along well=/=openly antagonistic mind you.
>>35707518Well meta wise we know the north is prone to rebellion when you mess with them so maybe it's that too.
>>35707546They're corrupting in different ways, and I can't imagine Eri would initially like someone who is associated with hedonism. That said, I'm actually getting a good feeling off this girl: I think she'll not be as bad as people think she will be.
>>35708003She's kinda lewd-ish but in a cozy, charming sort of way.
>>35708033One sided pleasure is a sin.
>>35708139Did any of what she just did to Helena look one-sided? Liliana is a service minded individual.
>>35709138That's exactly my point, I was agreeing with >>35708033 there. She wants others to enjoy themselves. She's the kind of girl swallows not because she likes the taste or is after your money, but simply because it pleases you, which pleases her. Spoiler because 2lewd.
>>35709246Best subbes. I think she can help Maria.
>>35710434She's also >>35678506>"Way too hot but…" I move to stand up, but she waves a hand and I stop. "…that can be good too".Pretty damn masochistic. Again in a lazy, casual, charming way but it's there.
>>35710434>I think she can help Maria.Again Convergence turns out to be a rather based cosmic law.
>>35678506Liliana's first reference picture has heart eyes. That alone is enough to get me on her side.
>>35710804Good to know I'm not alone in that line of thought.The only thing that could win me over faster would be a brown girl with white hair.
>>35710880Plenty of nobles like that in the hot regions, I'm sure.
>>35710804Liliana seems cool. I just hope anons won't constantly be lewd about her.
>>35710923She's kind of inviting it and anons would do it if she was the purest girl in the history of the world. Sorry.If it helps, I don't think she's actually lewd. There's more to hedonism than its basest expression and more to Yulemai than that aspect besides.
>>35703042>In the middle of her lower back is a small stylized bat. If there's anything that reassures me about her, it's this. If she was Rabbit, I'd say to run like hell, but she's Bat, which means she probably is stronger on the dreams side of Yulemai's portfolio. Bats do focus on the Beyond and secrets.>Oh, that reminds me I don't know any but Senra's totems yet.Haha, Helena is in the same boat as Maria.
>>35711047>If she was Rabbit, I'd say to run like hell,Nothing wrong with a little bit of charm.
Is it weird to say that Helena is as airheaded as Maria but she does less "backtracking" in her thoughts?
>>35711059There is when a cleric of Yulemai is using Rabbit high magic. Even just that passive charisma aura Eva uses on her lolis would be scary in a Yulemai's hands.Gonna copy/paste the Bat stuff because it's interesting and relevant.>Bats embody the idea of the Witch as diabolist, schemer and medium. One who knows too much and always seems to have another ace or ten up her sleeve.A Bat isn't some valiant defender like the Raven or a maddened avenger like the Cat, but she'll always know the hidden places and secret words needed to push herself and the select few she trusts ahead.Most Bats have a very high aptitude for understanding magic at its basest level, and indeed most new spells tend to be originated by Witches under this Totem.It is often said that Bats have, compared to, say, Raven or Cat a somewhat poor grasp on the concept of a personal code or ethical beliefs and are therefore linked to a natural inclination towards evil, but in truth their beliefs simply tend to be much less generalized.Where a Cat might unleash a terrible scourge upon a bandit's village, the Raven would try to slay the perpetrators in honorable combat or a Rabbit might try to talk its leader down -all in the name of "good"- the Bat will instead prefer to do fairly little herself, seeing such things as rash and potentially harmful.Of course, if someone she cares about happens to be captured? Prepare for the storm, for the Bat knows powerful things and powerful people, often in places are not even aware exist.To summarize: The Bat is the totem of Knowledge, Intuition, Secrets and the Beyond. It tends to choose people that prefer to weigh their options and act on what they feel is most beneficial to them and those they are allied with.
>>35711148Such a cerebral totem paired with a follower of the pleasure god is actually pretty funny.
>>35711191Not really. It's more that Yulemai's portfolio is pretty broad. >>35703205She handles writers, entrepreneurs, and Liliana demonstrated spur of the moment insight when she unlocked the bathroom door.
>>35711258>Not really. It's more that Yulemai's portfolio is pretty broad.>She handles writers, entrepreneurs, and Liliana demonstrated spur of the moment insight when she unlocked the bathroom door.Yulemai is the god of not being an unimaginative sheep with a boring life, basically.
Can't say I have much interest in girls who aren't Maria (or Eriadne, I guess) but I do want to follow this stuff still.Needs more Maria.
>>35721786>not being interested in all the girlsAgreed that we should get back to Maria next thread.
>>35721929>not being interested in all the girlsI just hope we don't end up with some major character bloat. I guess we'll see how in depth Hex gets with the characters outside of the main 7.
>>35721929I'm one-girl kind of guy.
>>35721989That depends on our actions, doesn't it? We do decide who Maria spends her time with.And as much as I like this girl, I can't see Maria choosing to spend much time with her. Maybe as classmates, I bet she took Sensing.
>>35722148>That depends on our actions, doesn't it? We do decide who Maria spends her time with.That is true to a degree but there is an upper limit to how much interaction can happen with side characters before they start overshadowing the core cast.It already feels like the twins are falling into the background but I guess that has a lot to do with them kind of being walking spoilers at this point.>I can't see Maria choosing to spend much time with her.I agree here she's more of a side character that Helena would befriend.
>>35722187I don't see overshadowing as a problem because I don't feel there's a core cast in this story. Maybe Maria and Eriadne, but that's it. And that's only because they're crushing on each other.
>>35722248I don't really agree.I think that the seven girls we grouped up with in the first day are a strong core cast and keeping not diluting them with a deluge of other major characters is important in a character focused story like this.
>>35722335On the other hand, there is in fact plot, at least two, maybe three of them. And side characters can be incredibly important to solving plot, because our small group of witches isn't necessarily capable of solving all things on their own. Yet.
>>35722499I'm not particularly interested in plot. There's more than enough content here to keep me happy with side-quests, training, and social links.But all that is getting timeskipped soon. Which, in hexspeed, means around 20 threads in the future.
>>35722499This is true but it is important to have a balance between developing side character and not dragging too much focus away from the core cast.I guess as an example I wouldn't want to see a perspective switch to characters outside of the core cast except for an interlude like with the exiled witch.
I really hope I'll be able to properly balance out plot and just whimsical stuff for you guys. I'm glad when people voice their opinions because it gives me some measure of insight into what does and doesn't work.After all, I'm still learning this thing.>>35722148>>35722187>>3572192That's the thing. Maria has certain circumstances that naturally predispose her to interacting with some less than others. I do plan on returning to her fairly soon, but unless y'all are legitimately opposed to having PoV switches happen again EVER I'd like to use them every now and then in order to balance screentime in a somewhat fair manner.What are your thoughts? Oh and yes, update soon.
>>35723307I don't mind POV switches as long as they stick to the core cast.
>>35723307My opinion is basically that you need to just let things move forward more.You seemed to have given a lot of thought to the characters and I feel there's more you haven't even shown us. But I also feel that just like how you agonize over your updates you agonize over presenting these characters and who they are to us(maybe that's part of why you agonize over each update, I dunno). This has created a situation where despite not much happening yet we've really gotten to know characters like Maria and Eri real well. It doesn't feel like it's been a day at all. But at the same time it HAS been a day and it's kind of unnecessary to show off this much of the cast and who they are so early. Basically, part of the pacing issue, from my perspective, is you try to cram too much of the cast into each post that you kind of forget we can learn more about them later on as the story continues. Thus we get stuck with the slow pacing. Make strong first impressions, move on with the story, and show us who they are little-by-little when we cross paths again, you know? Like Liliana here. You made a strong first impression with her. We know who she is; we'll recognize her when we see her again. Same with Chuuni priestess and other characters that haven't been "explored" yet. But when they do we'll learn more about them.I don't think PoV's are necessary for screentime since we'll get that if you just move on with the show. But I could be misjudging the situation so whatever. I don't mind them, especially for the reason stated, I just hope you don't switch solely because you can't get the other characters to show up otherwise. Because that probably means the story hasn't gone anywhere, you know? I feel this Helena PoV was kind of unnecessary plot-wise because of that reasoning. Like, is there any reason we couldn't have met this girl later in the story?Not that character-interaction focused stories are bad but if you wanna balance with plot more there you go.
>>35723513Oh yeah, and I'd also like to add that it's kind of hard to show off certain aspects of the character if nothing is really happening in the story. Especially parts that are more hidden and only get drawn out in certain situations. About half of character depth is reading between the lines of how the character interacts with/reacts to the rest of the story and how the story reacts to them.
>>35723513>But I also feel that just like how you agonize over your updates you agonize over presenting these characters and who they are to us(maybe that's part of why you agonize over each update, I dunno).

Thus we get stuck with the slow pacing.Okay, full disclosure here. I fully expected this to die ingloriously/have myself become unable to continue/make some mistake and get trolled off the board/get sick within the first five threads or so and therefore felt I had to make it somewhat worthwhile. Hence the confused pacing in those and the on-going tradition of slow progression in those afterwards, though at least my head isn't as much of a mess anymore.So yes, you're mostly right, there is certainly this mindset at play here and I really hope to be able to rectify this as we go on.>I don't think PoV's are necessary for screentime since we'll get that if you just move on with the show. But I could be misjudging the situation so whatever. I don't mind them, especially for the reason stated, I just hope you don't switch solely because you can't get the other characters to show up otherwise. Because that probably means the story hasn't gone anywhere, you know? Hmm. Yes and no. The thing is that certain things need setting up for later in order to not come across like total curveballs and that this lets me avoid that thing where the MC seems like the only character who has a life.>cont
>>35723513>I feel this Helena PoV was kind of unnecessary plot-wise because of that reasoning. Like, is there any reason we couldn't have met this girl later in the story?Well, yes, but THAT wasn't actually a plot thing so much as a thing where I wanted to explore someone else without having it be through the lens of Maria's -intentionally- highly subjective point of view.>>35723380Yes, that's the idea.>>35723594You're absolutely right there, aye.> TL;DR: muh artistic integrity, muh deep storytelling, muh blogAnyway, further input highly welcome, I'll just gonna focus on it later and write the next part timed.
>>35723622>>35723661>this lets me avoid that thing where the MC seems like the only character who has a life.>THAT wasn't actually a plot thing so much as a thing where I wanted to explore someone else without having it be through the lens of Maria's -intentionally- highly subjective point of view.Those are really great reasons right there and totally worth breaking the "rules" for.I know a shitton about "story theory" because I'm a nerd like that but I ignore 90% of it when I write my own stuff. The knowledge is nice but it gets overwhelming and constricting if you stick to it religiously. It's something to be applied to editing if at all.
>>35723622>>35723714>Hmm. Yes and no. The thing is that certain things need setting up for later in order to not come across like total curveballs and that this lets me avoid that thing where the MC seems like the only character who has a life.Explain.
>>35723775I think what he's saying is that a big issue in quests is that it can kind of feel like the whole world is just sitting around waiting for the MC to run into it if you're not careful. Especially with how players really like to be involved with plots and characters and don't really like other people solving the conflicts in the story for them, since that basically happens off-screen(or to the side or in the background) and it doesn't feel like a story that's about them anymore. When an NPC does solve something it's usually because the PC delegated them to do it. Switching PoV's fixes that since it lets other characters step up and do important stuff without sacrificing player agency or making it feel like the PC is the only thing with agency.Also a bit of privileged subtext is nice. Like how in a scary movie you start to feel the tension when the MC is about to open the door that you know has the monster on the other side. That kind of scenario and tensionn is hard to create if you never leave this one character's PoV.>>35723828Ssshhh.
We don't need to go meta to have a problem with others solving our conflicts for us. Maria can take issue with that and we can roleplay it out just fine.I kind of wish we'd met this Yulemai cleric in a dream first. She could greet us as Helena's friend, and we'd get to ask Helena about it when we woke up and maybe flashback to Helena meeting her. But I guess this way is fine too.
>>35724009>We don't need to go meta to have a problem with others solving our conflicts for us. Maria can take issue with that and we can roleplay it out just fine.Well, they aren't really OUR conflicts, or more accurately Maria's conflcts, they're just conflicts within the story. Like the classic story of overthrowing an evil empire. You(not the MC, you the player) would take issue if someone else did that beside the PC that you're playing to do exactly that, right? Bit of a bad example but the idea I'm trying to establish is that when stuff shows up in a story players want to interact with it and figure it out, and if it gets fixed by itself without player input it feels like it's pointless because it's the QM taking plot hooks and resolving them without us so why make it a quest and not a novel?But at the same time some of those problems are tied to specific characters or something and while it might kind of makes sense for the PC to butt in and help them out a bit it isn't always logically necessary for them to be involved at all. But because it's a quest and you have player agency to worry about and fixing an issue off screen is bad QMing form it's how you have to do it. The players has to be involved in the process of resolving plot hooks because the players have to be involved in the story and that results in the MC feeling like it's the only character with a life if it's the only character you ever play as.In this case, Maria wouldn't take issue because it wouldn't have been Maria's place to solve it. But if we only play as Maria then she kind of HAS to solve it because player agency. Obviously, it's not like everyone's gonna jump down Hex's throat if we complete ignore some plot hook in favor of others and someone else deals with it instead but if it was something we were interested in getting resolved wouldn't we want to be a part of that process?
That makes me take a step back, ooh actually yes, it seems like the "feeling" of her life really is a little fuzzy at the edges. Maybe oh, this could be bad, this could be real real bad if what I heard of that god is true.~I open the wings of my soul and know the world~She grows indistinct, like the mist that still fills the bathroom suddenly became way thicker, her cream-coloured blouse and almost too short skirt seeming to blur into the backround. Her life the thing that keeps her going though is getting stronger and it feels like it's almost forming a dome of light way brighter than is normal. Uooh, this is way strange. Looking at her like this it seems like she has a second face over her normal one, one that doesn't quite match up her expression but instead is always a few seconds ahead or behind. Though now, both of her faces look at me with the same amused grin."Ey, you checkin' me out?" Checking out? I've heard that word but she doesn't seem to come from anywhere where they talk like that and I don't really know what that means when you talk about people like that oh no now she'll think I'm way way too rude!! "N-no". I try my best to look not guilty but that probably makes it look way worse. Really hate lying it's not good at all, especially not with friends."Not like that, though I wouldn't fault ya, s' just that I think you're lookin' at me with more than your eyes and stuff". I return to looking at her normally though it's really more shock. "Y-you can tell? I mean I didn't, I mean, how do you mean aaah sorry that was rude please don't be mad I won't do it again unless you don't mind". She just shrugs and goes on to fix her hair into two long messy side tails. "If ya want to apologize and stuff ya could mayhaps tell me which god's yours and how you're called. Fair's fair, right?"> tbc, had to run unexpectedly
>>35724431That is rude Helena, pls.
>>35724431>twintailsI already like you, you can stop trying.
>>35724522> liking prophets of the slut god
>>35724550Dreams, pleasure and joy=/= slut.
>>35724431> "Not like that, though I wouldn't fault ya, s' just that I think you're lookin' at me with more than your eyes and stuff"Someone call XS! We have to adjust the purity ratings.
>>35724550She's not the slut god, but if she was, it would only make me like her more.
>>35724679Now now anon, we can't do that every time there's a small change, it'd just spam the quest and I wouldn't wish that on poor Hex. There's already tons of lewd discussion as it is.
>>35724679I don't have a bead on Liliana yet, and Helena is at 80% still. The thoughts associated with her deity don't count against her regardless of who they're about.
>>35724679>>35724758What's interesting with her is that she's very casual and assured about things. She doesn't really second guess herself and just does whatever works best, casually teases then immediately backs off before it starts to feel pushy and does something else.
>>35725753I've been thinking of her as mini-Sora/Eva.
>>35725753>>35725781All-Communion is one hell of a drug.
I'm cooling down, somebody help.
>>35724163>>35724009>>35723834Some pretty interesting persepctives there. Thank you a lot.>>35723714Ha, thanks. Thank you all for your support so far, you're the best playerbase one could ever hope for.
So...How about them Witches, huh?
>>35730439Witches are cute.A friend gave me a cute girl dress-up thing and I made cute witches in it. Well. only Helena so far, I couldn't decide on an outfit for Maria and wasn't satisfied with my choices for Eri.
>>35730677That's pretty cute anon, I approve.
>>35730677Animu as fuck 10/10 would imouto
>>35730677Looks fine except for those feet.
Fair sure is fair, that's absolutely true. Really I shouldn't have spied but a cleric of THIS god of all things is just way strange to find here. She's just way different from how I thought they would be and from what little I saw of them when we went to one of their temples. Really though it's not good to jut think that, she's been nothing but nice so far. Uoh, stop looking guilty stop looking guilty I'm just making it worse!! I nod, slowly. This is at least something I know. "N-nice to meet you, I serve the Shining Lady Athra. Uhmm… they call me Helena, yea…" Awkward, awkward, way too awkward. Liliana smiles again, taking a step towards me and bowing her head again. "Helena, 's a pretty name, and Athra seems like a cozy god to serve. What you think… wanna be friends?" Eeeeh, she like's Athra!! Friends!! Her hand leaves me arm -whu~ when did it get there- and I raise my own. I nod. "That would be the greaatest". We shake hands and I feel like something super important just happened. Well it did! Lilliana winks. "Well, let's meet that Senra of yours, eh?" I nod, bundling up my last clothes before a loud pang makes me turn just in time to see Liliana sitting on her rear and rubbing her forehead while glaring at the door muttering words neither of us should know yet. "What did you do, Lilianna?!". She looks at me, then the door, sounding really indigno… she sounds really offended. "Tried to open that blasted door!" Now that is strange. I step up to her and help her up, then pull the door open. I look at her and she blushes, rubbing her head again. "Guess that thing opens the other way, eh?" What a nice but strange girl. >cont
>>35731725>doesn't know which way the door opensHow did she get inside then?
>>35731776Theory: Influence of her god makes her basically perma high.
>>35731776We (well, Helena) should ask.
>>35731776The ceiling, probably.
>>35731776Walked through the dreamworld.
>>35736266>Night night, Hex!S/he'll deliver!
>>35736328I hope so.
>>35731725>Eeeeh, she like's Athra!! Friends!!Helena's only friend was her god. That's either pathetic or incredibly badass.
>>35739192I read it as incoherent stringing together of impressions and thoughts but this works too, kind of.> implying you need friends when you have a god for a friendFace it, if reality worked like AToWverse we'd both be posting this from inside a temple. Sadly, even assuming god(s) exist they're much more subtle than that.
>running out of picturesYou wouldn't have this problem if you raided pixiv/*booru/whatever and expanded your subject pool.
>35744054But anon that's just not warm enough.I have tons of non-warm pictures but it wouldn't be the same.
>>35744065The burning joke got old a while ago. It's fine to switch to plain old comfy pictures now. Yulemai would approve.
>>35744103You're just trying to take our warmth away aren't you!
>>35744103>Yulemai would approve.> tfw rather than the god of sluts and druggies Yulemai turns out to really just be the god of feels good, manHA! Told you, but noo had to pretend Hex suddenly turned into ND just because of the word "pleasure".
>>35744419She's also the god of writers and creative inspiration. Definitely a much better god to propitiate than the god of fire and invention, whatshisname.
Hope you're ready for a new day, Hex!
>>35746040Yes, just about done hallucinating/half-sleeping/etc all that fun stuff.
>>35746146Sounds like the perfect time for Witches!
>>35746166This, good anon, is objective and absolute truth. It still looks like there are about 400 words between now and the next choice which means that in total there will have been 2000 words between two choices. Control, life, lost, etc. The Hex stands before the Weaver's throne, asking "What is pacing?"
>>35746199Then the great lord Decu looked down and said "Fuck if I know".
>>35746199Don't worry about it Hex, we can deal. It's not like EVERY update is that meaty.
>>35746199Personally I love big updates.
>>35746423Yeah they're not so bad as long as it doesn't take two days to do them.
How's it going Hex?
>>35749623Should be done in half an hour or less, way too many distractions before. Sorry.>>35746423>>35746213Cool.>>35746212HAHAHAHA.
"Sooo…" We're just out the door and Lilliana is already back to being all relaxed and sleepy like, her breathy, kinda melodious voice feeling way calming to just listen to. "Yes?", I say, hoping she'll not ask anything embarassing yet. "Going to tell why the first thing ya did was rubbin' your soul 'gainst mine, hmm?" Juust the worst of luck today, but really it's not like it was polite at all. Uooh, Souls rubbing? Hey that's way too rude! It's a divine gift you really shouldn't make fun of that you know even less because you are a cleric yourself. Come on now it's only right to respect this a little bit more or else the other people around us won't learn respect either. Really it looks like I'll have to teach you that. Patience is way important here!! Really it won't do at all to have friends not respect the Shining Lady Athra or even their own gods like this."Soo~oo~oo~oo~~~?" Lilianna draws out the word and plays with until it sounds like way too silly, like listening to a reed flute player making "wah~ wah~ wah~" sounds for the children listening to him. Really now must keep calm must not laugh. A cleric always has to be dignified. Whoops, too late. I quickly bite my fingers to stifle the laughter but it's way too late and Liliana takes the moment to poke me in the ribs painfully and repeats the same from the other side till and again and again!! "Stoooop~!!", I yell, but she doesn't and it seems like she's just getting faster! Suddenly she's in in front of me, grins, and while I'm hesitating just a second too long pushes against my forehead with three fingers."Gotcha. Now tell me!" She demands, sounding every bit like a pirate would sound like taking over a ship. >cont
Uoh, she's not much bigger than myself and yet she can do a voice as deep as that!! I force down the blush creeping on my face just in time. Sometimes Athra's gifts really are convenient just like that. Uoh, guess I'll really have to tell her after all. This is just the worst, but she defeated me in duel so the loser has to do what the winner says, I'm pretty sure that's how it works and Maria would agree.>cont
>>35752251That post sees...unusually short, Hex.
>>35752289Character limits are the devil, next part coming up. My apologies, again.
The chemistry these two have is way too good.
>>35752316No worries, just making sure you weren't missing anything.
>>35752220>"Going to tell why the first thing ya did was rubbin' your soul 'gainst mine, hmm?"I would post 'LEWD' but...I mean, it's getting a bit tired. Then again I guess I kinda just did. Oh well.
>>35752381It's less lewd and more teasing, coming from her. She just has this kind of innocent earnestness.
I really like Maria but I kind of don't wanna switch back now.
>>35752414Everything she says is full of innuendo. It's innocent teasing now, but in a year or two...
>>35752460Lilliana is fun, anon! That's all!
>>35752497>>35752460I just hope our Senra doesn't badly influence her... tendencies.
>>35752518Eva has a naughty streak but she does seem to prefer keeping it away from her lolis. Or can anyone here recall her ever even implying something dirty in their presence.
>>35752432But that's like eating sweets for every meal of the day.
>>35753524Isn't everyone agreed that Maria is best girl? Being her all the time is eating all the sweets.
>>35753573Maria is a different type of Moe to Helena.Helena is super high sugar food while Maria is more like a piece of fruit.
I'm out of warm pictures.
>>35758181Hex status: asleep?
>>35759834Seems so unfortunately.
How's your afternoon going Hex?
Why's this piece of shit still going? You can get your moeslut fix out from the animoos this hack gets his pictures from.
>>35769564Has someone been vexed by Hex?
>>35770223More like Vexer amirite.
Hex pls it's almost 30 hours since there were '400 words to go' and 21 since the first part.
Will there be an update today?
To be honest I kind of want Hex to drop this fucking POV switch and go back to Maria.It's almost been 4 days at this point.
Ggh, sorry, done FINALLY though 99% was hastily re-done in the last 30 minutes. My apologies, but we're finishing this now."Well, that was..." I begin, but then I am really not sure how to continue. Lilianna just wags her finger threatingly at me -huh, it looks like there is a different symbol painted on each one, that's way odd though at the temple we did used to paint ourself for some ceremonies so maybe it's not that strange afte rall who knows I need to calm down here- and I nod. "…it was just like kind of strange to find another cleric just like that and I wasn't sure I had seen you yesterday at the meeting and… well… they say things about you!!" Uoh, that last bit really shouldn't have come out with the rest but really it's not good to lie maybe she'll just kind of ignore it. Best to distract her, but with what with what… oh nice I got it and really *am* curious about that. "Now!" I say, trying to sound serious and all cleric-like and concentrating my will. Does this Voice of Ceremony thing even work on servants of other gods? Even if it does it's not reall meant to give commands but hey anything might help. After hearing no protest from he I continue really fast "How did you get into the room, you didn't even know which way it opened!!" Hope that didn't sund too accusing, but if it does bad luck she did sneak in even if she is way nice and great, if not as great as Senra of course.Lilianna plays with one of her side tails and looks somewhere far away. Don't ignore the question, this is way rude! Really I'm just about to say something when she shrugs, regarding me sidw-- are those hearts in her eyes? No that's probably not right, but if she has them do I have the right to to tell her no? Friends shouldn't tell friends how their eyes should look, I mean Eriadne's change all the time, and while she's still a little bit scary she's absolutely okay because Maria thinks she's okay.1/5~
>>35775036Yaaay, Hex is back!
"--spiration". I turn to Lilianna just in time for like hte last half of a word to leave her mouth. "Urm, sorry please could you say that again?" Lilliana just shrugs again before beginning to speak. "I said it's a gift, like, I can know some things and they work, but like, my head's a little dreamy cause of that too so sometimes I do way silly thing even if they are like easy. You know, like, when you're half asleep and got all those good ideas but couldn't like solve a simple puzzle? S' like that I guess". Her eyes twinkle as she speaks, her arms weaving through the air. "S'way cozy though, wouldn't wanna trade it for anything". Hmm. So if that's like my gift then it's probably okay. I nod. This kind of thing is just the way it is and if she does not mind I really should respect that. She takes out a small bottle from one of the pockets in her dress and takes a deep swallow before putting it away. Huh, strange she'd carry water around with her inside. Or maybe it was something else, but I'll so not ask now cause I've asked already way too many things."NOW!!" I jump at her shout and dignity flies all the way through the window to its bloody death. Uoh, not good! Lilliana looks at me surprised, then mutters "Come on, don't be so jumpy" before beckoning me to get walking again. This girl is completely out of control. "Now", she starts again, raising one of those orange-red eyebrows. "Yes...?" I reply, wary. This girl really has way too many strange ideas way too quicklyHer smile deepens and her eyes glitter again. "What is it they say about us, eh?" Not goot, really not goo, but lying would be worse.>>35775093> It feels good.
>>35775036>1/5~How many words?
>>35775162She's got you pinned down now Helena!
"Just like, that you do things to people… you know… those things". I forget focusing for a second and my face instantly burns like fire. Oh Athra no! Surprisingly, that only makes Lilianna widen her eyes for a second. She looks almost offended instead of amused, then just shakes her head, smile returning a little weaker but it still feels true though her mood seems a little down for once. "No, Helena. Y'know, it's only allowed if the ohter likes it and ya woulda felt real bad afterwards so ya… not something we do… you believe me, right?" Actually I do, I really do. I just nod, and just like that, we're at the end of the hall. We look at each other, sigh as one and start to laugh before I lead her back to our actual room. With grace and dignity, of course. Lilliana twirls her hands around each other, the slightly loopy expresssion all restored. "Well, you'll, like, knock walk in or something? Cause like, it's your room, not mine's what I'm sayin'". Right, rightt, she's totally right there. I knock, sudenly way too aware of my new style, then push the door open, the white linnen of my short-sleeved summer dress suddenly feeling way heavy."Welcome back dear, I was just about ready to go looking for you an--" Eeeh, Senra was worried!! That makes me really happy but also kind of sad. "--your look…" Oh no will she hate it? She will probably think it really doesn't suit me at all! "…your look is quite surprising, but you look even cuter in it. Come here". I step forward, and she pets me on the head, the flowers in my hair pressed against my head. "Where did you find these, dear?" I beam up at her. "Athra provides, Senra!" If I remind her often enough I'm sure she'll eventually see how great the Shining Lady really is. Just thank her. It's not *that* good. Ask her how much cuter I look OtherDo Introduce Lilliana Just let her introdue herself Other3/3, [character counts are weird]>>35775180> One thousand
>>35775218I bet they think Yulemai are massive lewdlords and sluts.
>>35775264>[x] Ask her how much cuter I look>[x] Introduce Lilliana
>>35775264That's a lovely dress.>[x] Ask her how much cuter I look>[x] Introduce LillianaOf COURSE we introduce her! After getting praised.
>>35775264 Ask her how much cuter I look Introduce Lilliana
>>35775264> Just thank her. It's not *that* good.> Introduce LillianaSee anons, Lilliana is a good girl.

Not sure if fun or just NOPE.>>35775419Of course she is. Yulemai is a classy pleasure god and Liliana is a classy powersub, not a rapist.
>>35775264 Ask her how much cuter I look Just let her introdue herself
>>35775279>>35775264>>35775279I WAS RIGHT.
>>35775162>She takes out a small bottle from one of the pockets in her dress and takes a deep swallow before putting it away. Huh, strange she'd carry water around with her inside. Or maybe it was something else, but I'll so not ask now cause I've asked already way too many things....that wasn't water, Helena.
>>35775652Naaah, what else could it be? Obviously water.
>>35775700>>35775652> A Tale Of Russians
>>35775264>"No, Helena. Y'know, it's only allowed if the ohter likes it and ya woulda felt real bad afterwards so ya… not something we doNow if you reverse that... So if you ask her, she'll fuck you?
>>35775832Now now anon, I'm sure she only CUDDLES people she likes.
>>357758322magical4hex, but they probably have fewer hang ups and are really open to try things.
>>35775832Or part of the reason is simply that she's not into girls or not exclusively.
>>35775264> Ask her how much cuter I look> Introduce Lilliana
>>35775999Don't be silly anon.
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/119428518466Is that quote implying what I think it does?
>>35776047What do you think it implies anon?
>>35776054Breaking your marriage vows gets you Sharia'd because you don't count as a person anymore. Hex said a few times that humans and people aren't the same in AToW.
>>35776132>Sharia'dI'm not entirely sure what you mean by that. But yeah the punishment is probably very severe maybe something like slavery.
>>35775999>>35776021>>35776043They're probably like in the north and it's not seen as an issue.
>>35776172Fucking northerners man no sense of right and wrong.
>>35776201If acquiring an additional loli every few hours is wrong then I wonder which arguments you have for being right.
>>35776276As an interesting side note if Eva keeps up her current loli collection rate of about 4 per day for the duration of the quest which is planned to be 3 years she will have 4383 lolis by the end of the story.
>>35776330Hmmm...but at some point, it'll have to slow down simply because she won't have time to deal with more.
>>35776330Eh, many lolis is good but you have to treat them well. I think she'll be happy with 4.
>>35776351>Doubting Senra's ability to notice her lolis.I have a feeling it might be exponential actually.
>>35776330I forgot that the twins are actually 2 people again.So about 5479 lolis.
>>35776351That's only a small fighting force so she'll just use Rabbit's power to make them into an army. Though I suspect Mooncrest doesn't have that many lolis.
>>35776388>>35776419I think it might end up exponential her lolis have already started collecting other lolis for her.So it wouldn't be surprising if her influence passed beyond Mooncrest.
>>35776407>actually 2 people I DON'T THINK THEY'RE EITHER OF THOSE THINGS.
>>35776388>>35776452I wonder if her mom was such an expert lolimancer as well. Or maybe she looks really young and got lolimanced by her dad.
