Tom begins to carry their new acquaintance upstairs, making his way to the surface access hatch.Ruby jumps down into the room below, trying to reach the symbol-laden clock downstairs as quickly as possible.It's only a matter of time until Ace escapes again, and he'll be looking for them.
Alright, everyone keep sane. We're in crunch time here, post sensibly.
[Cutscene, don't flood with suggestions]
Ruby: DOWN THE HOLE YOU GOTom: START DRAGGING EMOBIRD TOWARDS EXIT
RUBY: fall in a more hard-boiled way
oh shit I just got home now I need to find the old thread before it 404s
Ruby lands safely in the room below.The backup console here is still not receiving power.She quickly heads downstairs to the clock dial, now that she's recovered the wooden EYE PEG.
>>3601326Keep Constant Radio contact! Leave both on all the time so you both know exactly what's happening even if there's no time to say anything directly.
>>3601356Good idea. Ruby and Tom both make sure their radios are on.Ruby quickly climbs down into the brig, which is still as broken as ever, and darts into the side room.There, she finally replaces the wooden EYE PEG and dials it to the symbol that corresponds to the console she used when she first woke up.
ASk tom how he is holding up!
you've made me a junkie, weaver
>>3601365Now of course go to said console to use.Move with caution.
Actually, the Brig seems worse than ever.
Whoah, this is interesting. I need to read the older threads too to catch up.
>>3601380They're invading.It's not just Ace we have to worry about. Gotta hurry.
>>3601365Got to head up to the console room, I guess...
The system returns to power and begins to slowly start up.
>>3601398"OPEN SURFACE HATCH", in case it's not obvious already.Then run after Tom.
Time to decide what command we should input...
>>3601398check on Tom.
Look up informations about #6
>>3601409No time for that.
>>3601398OPEN SURFACE HATCH
>>3601409>Look up informations about #6ಠ_ಠ
There'll be plenty of time to postulate theories and pump Weaver for more information after we get out. If I know this type of game, it'll have a post-ending encyclopedia to peruse.For now, we must focus on the victory. We must dissent. We must survive.
>>3601405>check on Tom.While Ruby waits for the system to respond, Tom runs into FILBERT. Apparently he shook off a massive dose of tranquilizer rather quickly. He menaces with spikes of flesh at Tom. He seems even more ravenously determined than last time, eager to rip Tom to pieces.This is the last thing he needed. He's got to get to the exit.Tom doesn't fucking have TIME for this!
>>3601409Are you fucking kiddding me? You really think this is the time for researching shit?
>>3601426Except Weaver's said the exact opposite. Not that I advocate wasting time in a retarded way like that.
>>3601430"THE HATCH IS OPEN, FUCK OFF"
>>3601430Tell him that Ace has more bad than the rest of them put together. ACE IS THE ONE THAT NEEDS TO BE CUT IMMEDIATELY.
>>3601426Paraphrasing Weaver:"This is not going to be like Silent Hill with a little movie at the end telling you everything that happened and why."So nope. No encyclopedia for you.
Try to throw him into the pipe!
>>3601430get the hell out of my way fil. we got the exit open. if you want to come, follow me. i'm leaving this place with ruby.
>>3601430DROP BIRD.EQUIP SCALPEL.SHANK FILBERT.GET YE BIRDY.RUN.
>>3601430WE'RE OPENING THE SURFACE HATCH, LETS GO
>>3601430Ask EMOBIRD to use PSYCHIC POWERS to OBSCURE VISION OF FIL
>>3601430DAMN IT I TOLD YOU TO KILL HIM WHILE HE WAS DOWN. Say: "Hey, know who's REALLY unclean? ACE!"
See if emobird can blind him/lead him to 6 or the fans.
>>3601430Drop bird, shovelcane to the head
Tackle him into the next room (ace conveniently starts fighting Filbert)
>>3601430"Ace is horribly infected! #6 is loose! They need to be clean! Hurry, before they manage to get out!"
>>3601435>>3601437Filbert clearly isn't listening. He's beyond reasoning with now.Filbert lunges at Tom!
>>3601430Tell him to remember the Hipocratic oath. Tom has a patient here who needs help. And yes, tell him that ACE has LOADS more Badness.
Use MANLY PHYSIQUE to kill Filbert. Tom can took him out once, he can do it again.
Inventory check plz.
Yell for help!
>>3601439I must have missed that bit.Still, point stands. We want to win.
dump the last of the anaesthetic into him, go fetch stitches
>>3601461emobird. help me out!
Throw him into the pipes! Might worK!
Give him a mighty kick, send him reeling through the door.
>>3601461DODGE.DODGE THAT BASTARD.Try to get him to lunge into the air duct and fall down it.
>>3601461Scaple to the kidneys... preferably the side WITHOUT mouths...
>>3601461SAME AS BEFORE.DROP BIRD.EQUIP SCALPEL.SHANK FILBERT TILL HE DIES.GET YE BIRDY.RUN.
>>3601461Drop EMOBIRDHold FILBERT offAsk EMOBIRD for some DARKNESS
he'll expect the scalple you idiots. Tom's best bet is throwing him in the hatch as he lunges
DON'T PULL AN SDF, WEAVER
I have a hunch that Weaver is railroading a bit, but only against death. He wants a good ending as much as the rest of us, which is why all our actions are either surprisingly effective or responded with "Are you stupid?" or something.I think this is a good thing.
You what we'd need right now? Some RED getting his righteous PLANE OF TEETH on.
>>3601461Dodge Filbert, shove him into the pipehatch, SLAM IT DOWN AND JAM IT SHUT.
CALL OUT TO STITCHES
>>3601516might as well call out to john, ace will hear either way.
>>3601515He can crush a fucking steel crowbar with his JAWS.
>>3601516OH NO U DONT KIRA
>>3601463>Use MANLY PHYSIQUE to kill Filbert.Tom has had enough of this shit.
>>3601532FUCK YES YOU ARE MY BEST POKEMON EVER!
>>3601532I actually just yelled "FUCK YEAH" :D
>>3601532BERSERK!Well done Tom. Kill him. Kill!
Tom wins.Fatality! o_O
>>3601532 JESUS CHRIST
Did... did Tom just...Whoa.Kick Filbert into the preceding room and book it. Hope Ace catches Filbert.
>>3601461Rip FILBERT's head off and spike it like a FOOTBALL at the ground.Make sure that bastard can't come back.
Check on Emo, call down to Ruby.
>>3601536Tom uses Manly Physique!It's super effective!
>>3601532Ok, continue to the exit.Let's check on Ruby.
>>3601532ANGRY TOM! ALWAYS ANGRY, ALL THE TIME!
>>3601532Finish off FilbertEnd Beserk RageGrab Bird and Run
No chances this time.
Alright, alright, let's get it sane, people.
>>3601580This is madness!
>>3601580>>3601581Well, this is more than slightly ironic.
>>3601580 I consider this the good end.
>>3601583and it's delicious
>>3601580Pick up Emobird, and keep running. Try to think about where all that strength came from, too.
>>3601580Stuff his head in the nearest closet.
Is this the same guy who got killed by Ruby? Jesus christ his death hasn't been good to him.Check on Ruby and if the console is good to go, open the hatch.
TOM SNAPS EMOBIRD OUT OF ITESCAPEMAKE LOVE
>>3601580SPIKE THAT FUCKER.THEN, TOUCHDOWN CELEBRATIONS!
>>3601580ok, enough barbarian psycho rage... grab emobird and make for the door!
Tom and Emo bird escale for hot sex, Ace kills Ruby.we all win
>>3601580PUNT THE HEAD ACROSS THE ROOM
Hey, hows Ruby doin' anyway? that console booted up yet?
Tom has no idea how that just happened.
>>3601580Ok Tom, calm down already. Pick up Emobird and go to the exit hatch.And let's check on Ruby.
Toss the head at the fans (don't bother going there, just throw it)
>>3601580Nip into the Fan room and quickly unlock 6's door, then run back, grab Emo again and continue upward.Got to give Six a chance of Escape/Coming out to stall Ace. Six may be horribly disabled and mutated, but he, like Emobird, is still a prisoner of Ace.And that makes him a good guy right now.
There is still Mutant Xeno on board, Turn around and PURGE
>>3601606No blood? Anywhere? That's funny.Or was that a flashback? OHSHIT!
Just get out of there already!!!!!!11
RUBY KICKS THE WALL HAVING TO WAIT SO LONGRUBY'S TOE HURTS
It was pretty cool though.
>>3601606Tom you're turning into a monster, just like the others. You shouldn't escape, look at what you're doing, look what you're going to bring to the world. Think about it, the extra arms, your super strength, your enormous penis... none of it is natural.The only thing to do is kill the bird now, and decide if you kill yourself stopping Ace and 6 getting ruby, or if you shutdown the escape now, and stop all this horror fro getting to the real world
Tom is EVIL.He killed Filbert, who was clearly THE HERO.It's all your fault /tg/. I hate you.
Tom mutates even more?
Yeah yeah GET OUT NOW!!!
>>3601606Adrenaline does strange things when stress levels are high.I've heard of grown men who were able to uproot trees when the rush hits them.Calm down, grab emobird, meet up with Ruby. It's time to get the fuck out of this hell hole.
>>3601580HOLY CRAP TOM HAS TURNED TO KHORNE
Tom mutates grabs emobird and still tries to escape
I told you guys. Tom's aggression is not a good thing. It's like Ruby's eye, just more subtle.
Tom continues upstairs with the ex-prisoner.Meanwhile, Ruby has finally accessed the console -- and the results are GOOD.
Yes cool.Plus Tom is gonna get so much tail from Ruby for doing it when they get outof there.Seriously.
GO FOR IT!
>>3601645CHANGE THE PASSWORD, RELEASE THE GAS, RUN TO PIPE, CLIMB TO FREEDOM
>>3601645can she get to the pipe with the hole in it? That would lead her up to the room where Fil was mutilated, then she could catch up much quicker
>>3601645TIME TO GET THE FUCK OUT AND GET SOME PORKCHOP SANDWICHES
They get the hell out of dodgeonly to encounter more building
>>3601647A) Ruby is a lesbianB) Ruby doesn't like killing peopleC) Ruby doesn't like bloodD) Ruby is a lesbian
>>3601624Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you.
>>3601645RELEASE GASGET THE FUCK OUT OF THAT PLACE
>>3601645But there's still the amnesia and that horrible disease to be dealt with. They can't just leave.Kill Ace. Maybe whatever's controlling him will die too, releasing Ruby and the others from their torment.
>>3601645Get the fuck outta here!
>>3601645Reprogram the facility's traps to react only to Ace and activate them!
>>3601645Well, Weaver, it's time, as you yourself put it, "To run to flee that hell."
>>3601680I prefer Manowar.
Ruby tears ass to get upstairs as fast as possible. As she climbs up the thoroughfare ladder, she hears the door to the cells being opened.Ace won't be far behind, and from the loud noises of him slamming around, he seems ANGRY.
Ruby runs likea bitch
This is all you should ever listen to when viewing these threads:http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=d14511Amd08
IGNORE; JUST KEEP RUNNING!
>>3601688Ruby? Unlock 6's door on the way. Tell him Ace has scissors.
>>3601679Dude, Ace is Cthulhu and the entire facility is being invaded by the forces beyond The Curtain...Fuck the amnesia and the disease, we're going home, damnit!
Close hatch with half of crowbar (same as it was closed with a staff earlier)
>>3601712fuck yes. do it!
>>3601679>They can't just leave.Yes they can. There's gotta be authorities who have the firepower (NUKE IT FROM ORBIT) to handle that problem. People will believe them, what with the extra body parts and all.
>>3601726Yeah, but what about the AMNESIA and the DISEASE?They'll never die. And they'll never remember any of their past life. They will live for billions of years, all the time wondering what they did during all that time.
JUST FUCKING RUN FOR ITESCAPEESCAPEESCAPEESCAPEESCAPE
>>3601726I was suddenly reminded of Parasite Eve II.Weird.
I agree with unlocking the door ace vs 6
>>3601688HEY ACE. WAIT UNTIL YOU MEET TOM YOU PIGFUCKER
>>3601730I would think after billions of years you would begin to lose interest in what amounts to less than a thousandth of your total life.
Offer Ace a cupcake and a shoulder massage.
fuck you answers peopleRUN AWAYTO THE SURFACE
>>3601730That's why you keep a diary...on your back.
>>3601730At least they'll be OUTSIDE, instead of trapped inside the MADNESS of the Elder Gods.
>>3601740YES, WE REALLY FUCKING CAN LEAVE WITHOUT KNOWING.6 CAN SHOW UP ANYWHERE ANYWAY, WE DON'T NEED TO HELP HIM.
>>3601746No I mean, they'll forget EVERYTHING. Even those billions of years.And don't you think existing that long would be pretty miserable anyway?
>>3601760eldrad would like a word with you
Ace vs 6 now!
>>3601764You just really want that bad end, don't you?
>>3601765Yes! I too would like to see Ace combat 6!
>>3601760Yeah, probably.But it might not be too shabby at first, yknow?
>>3601760At least they'll have each other...
Pst.Ace only went batshit AFTER we smashed the fetus-statue in his face.
STOP SPAMMING WITH BULLSHIT!
use ruby's insaine monster blood lust to kill ace!
>>3601772Everyone play Liberation of Gracemeria RIGHT NOW!
>>3601760I don't see the problem there. If they can't remember anything, every life would be a new life. Like hinduism. The problem would be remembering everything.
>>3601782GOD DAMN IT FITS
>>3601783the worlds longest diary
>>3601783Nah, I'd still rather have one nice hundred-year life which I remember entirely.Besides, they might still mutate even worse. In billion years, they'll end up pretty horrible, no?
Ruby finally reaches the upper level and bursts into the security room, only to find a monstrously gigantic, fleshy abomination covered in eyes, looking like a huge and horribly mutated version of Subject Six.It appears to be cowering in the corner, and doesn't seem to notice Ruby.ＨＥ'Ｓ ＣＯＭＩＮＧＡＣＥ ＩＳ ＣＯＭＩＮＧＨＥ'Ｓ ＧＯＩＮＧ ＴＯ ＬＯＣＫ ＭＥ ＵＰＩ'Ｍ ＳＣＡＲＥＤ, ＭＯＭＭＹ
>>3601801Tell Six you can help him.
>>3601801Tell him that Ace has scissors and resume running!
>>3601801 "You know what six? I think you can take him!"
Ruby "Be Brave! Protect your mother"!
>>3601801HE'S COMINGACE IS COMINGHE'S GOING TO LOCK ME UPI'M SCARED MOMMY
yell at 6 to follow us to safety! We've got to protect him, he's an innocent too
I vote Ruby books it RIGHT the fuck past him!GO!
>>3601801Give him scizzors!=*(
well the ace vs 6 thing is now officially a bad idea
>>3601801take advantage of it's fear and convince it to attack Ace
Ruby, you have the bonesaw! 6 just wants to escape, give 6 the bonesaw so it can cut itself free!
Our only chance now is tom and his manliness.....unless.....Subject 6 use flesh whip on ace!It's super effective!
>>3601801Even #6 is afraid of Ace? We're fucked, people. Fucked. Fucked. Fucked.
>>3601801Give Ace's key to the fleshy eye lump. Along with the scalpel: it won't be much use against Ace but it might serve as scissors so Six can free himself for a FINAL SHOWDOWN.
Give #6 the bonesaw: "This will make Ace go away"And run to the exit.
>>3601835Ruby has the bonesaw, we can give 6 the bonesaw and the key
>>3601825What makes you think 6 would have a better life out there? Who would accept him? We at least look humanoid. He's a monster.
>>3601801cut him free with BONESAW, then run like hell!
FIST OF THE MOTHERFUCKING NORTH STAR
Ruby gives 6 all her weapons!
>>3601825Seconded."You can beat Ace. I don't have scisors, but take this bonesaw instead."
>>3601841Either we get cured and he'll look humanoid too. Or we won't, and eventually EVERYONE will look like a monster.
CRAP! We forgot Stitches!! Tell Tom to go and get the boy, it's not too late! We can have Stitches' help fending off Ace. Then, with the power of Stitches and Emobird combined, we will rule over a conquered and beaten world!
i might be crazy, but if the staff had to remove all the sissors after the last time 6 got hold of a pair, im guessing giving him a bone saw might be a bad idea. maby.
>>3601801Give 6 the bonesaw. 6 might be powerful and mutated, but he also seems innocent and doesn't like Ace.TRY to escape with him if possible. He's as much a prisoner as Emobird was.
>>3601853stitches is already out, the cell was open
>>3601850But there is no cure out there. The cure is in the facility.We haven't mutated yet, after all this time. What makes you think we will now?
>>3601854It won't be our problem by then. Only Ace's.
>>3601864you mean the locker that was open and empty?
>>3601864no, the locker was empty when we left ace
>>3601873Okay, we haven't gone LOL MUTATIONS like the others have.
>>3601866then good troops with guns good enough to take Ace out will come and retrieve the cure for us.
Out of pity, Ruby tries to call to Subject Six, but it's no good. He sits shivering in his grief, muttering to himself in fear of Ace.Ruby enters the Lobby. The ex-prisoner seems to have regained some of his motor skills and is shakily climbing the now-open ladder upwards. Tom says his name is "Jay".Tom is visibly shaken. If that giant monster is afraid of Ace, he doesn't stand a chance, even if he were to manage another burst of adrenaline.
Stitches busts out encounters ace ruby flees after helping 6 tom and emo bird help ruby and 6
There's gotta be a way to fix some of this. Don't just bail.
>>3601854We didn't forget Sttches. We opened the locker for him, he wasn't there.
>>3601868If #6 is as dangerous and insane as EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE indicates, it will be our problem too.
"You don't have to fear Ace. You can take him. You can beat him. Just believe in yourself. If you can't, then believe in me, who believes in you."Then give him a weapon and RUN
>>3601879GET OUTTA THERE
>>3601866>>3601873People, there's no infection, no cure, no mutations. Just FUCKING EVIL messing with everyone inside the facility. They have to GTFO.
Take mr. Magpie and get out of there!
>>3601879Follow up, don't let the little creep close the hatch!
>>3601879Get out of there.
Oh wow. Is RubyQuest finally going to end? I'm gonna miss it. :(
GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO
>>3601886minute to cut itself free. 30 seconds to climb the ladder and close the hatch. Ace, Stitches and 6 duke it out together, downstairs.
>>3601891Then that evil has to die.Hopefully people outside will believe us and nuke it.
ruby jay and tom bust out ace either encounters stitches or 6 or busts through the ground like a tyrant
What about the other guy?The one with no legs/hands/eyes.FFFF, thanks alot, Weaver.I actually cried because they're all so angsty and sad. :c
DO WE WAIT FOR STITCHES? Y/N
Alright, so what would make a blind patient grow extra limbs, mutate into horrible room beasts, grow extra mouths and experience amnesia.
>>3601911No nukes!Cthulhu would return 24 hours later, as RADIOACTIVE. This guy might be similar.Nukes are never good to anything anyway.
>>3601879Up the ladder after Jay!Let's see what puzzles/problems the surface access has in store for us...
>>3601917I'm gonna say lupus.
>>3601917I think it might be lupus!
>>3601879inb4 JAY comes down again as a spray of blood.
Tom goes first. He's less nuts, and if it comes down to somebody having to stay behind for some reason, it shouldn't be him. Ruby, on the other hand, has killed multiple people THAT WE KNOW OF, and spontaneously
>>3601915Stitches has slightly too toothy head for my liking. Let him wait here until some help arrives.
>>3601915Leave hatch open, who gives a shit at this point, its fucking STITCHES bro he ain't going down fast
>>3601917i'm thinking nuclear waste injections.or lupus.
>>3601879GET OUTTA HERE! GET OUT!
everyone gets ready to rumblehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYhhLkiIBcg
>>3601879I fucking knew it was adrenaline.Right now, you're objective is to get the hell out of there.Make a note of the name of the Medical Institute on the wall, it seems fairly important.What the fuck is that being behind the desk? Automaton or some shit?
Tom goes first. If someone has to stay behind, it shouldn't be Tom, it should be Ruby. He's less BATSHIT NUTS, and as far as we know hasn't RANDOMLY SLAUGHTERED PEOPLE GRUESOMELY.
>>3601936nah. Stitches will survive Ace. But we don't want Ace or 6 following us. Close the hatch.
>>3601951Read the previous thread on /suptg/.
[I'd really wish you guys would take running discussion to the IRC room. 50+ posts between images that are nothing but reactions on top of another 50+ repeated "RUN" posts really take a while to slog through, sort of slows it down. Maybe ease up just a bit?]Tom begins talking to Ruby as quickly as possible:There is now a very serious problem. Ace will be here in a matter of seconds. There's no time for them to get to the surface and close the hatch.Someone will have to stay behind and distract him so the other can get to safety.
Uh, guys...? The place was sealed up for a reason. I think escaping might be slightly bad idea for the survival of mankind in general.
>>3601951You missed alot.That's Bella.
PEOPLE, GET AHOLD OF YOURSELVES.We're driving this thread over a cliff here! Let's get SANE!
>>3601962Tell Tom that we're sorry, but Ruby is the main character. He has to stay.
>>3601962Rock, paper, scissors?
>>3601962NO! We will runaway TOGETHER even if the whole world has to burn!
Drag Jay back down and tell that nigger to stay here. Promise to come back (No we won't come back)
>>3601962Screw you, Weaver. You weren't supposed to do this to us.I say Tom should get out, Ruby should be a distraction.
>>36019626.6 will stay behind and distract him.Help free 6 if neccessary.
Tom tells Ruby to take the ladder NOW.There is no way either of them would survive an encounter with Ace. "Goodbye, Ruby."
Go Tom, GO!
>>3601962ruby volunteers. stitches bro will appear. sacrifice himself./tg/ cries manly tears.
>>3601963fuck mankind. were playing a rabbit, a cat and apparently a bird.
how about we execute operation: fuck the world, and just dont bother closing the hatch behind us and just flee from Ace
>>3601987Stitches comes and saves her!
>>3601962Ruby should stay, she killed Tom once, it's the least she can do.
>>3601987TOM GOES. HAVE BABIES. LIVE HAPPY.
>>3601965Partially the reason I'm deleting posts.I need to catch up on my Ruby questings.
Kiss of goodbye!
>>3601962Tom: Use MANLY SACRIFICERuby: Kiss him and depart
Are you insane? Tom has 4 arms and SUPER STRENGTH, JUST CARRY HER
>>3601962Fuck that shit, Ruby gets on Tom and forms Mecha Shiva and they climb the damn ladder as fast as fucking possible, with the amount of stress they are under you can't tell me there isn't enough adrenaline pumping to get above Ace's reach in time.
>>3601987KISS TOM NOW FOR GOD'S SAKE
Tell Tom you're not going, you've killed him before. If he wont survive neither will you. 6 likes Ruby, maybe they have a chance together. Get out Tom, you deserve it.
>>3601962Have Ruby tell Tom to go on. He's the only one strong enough to carry Jay, and Ace was after her. Tell Tom to be brave, and to remember her always.Then Ruby turns around, finally feeling clean and redeemed from that 'murder of Tom' she saw herself commit, and waits for Ace to arrive.
You go, Tom. Drink the champagne for me.
>>3601962TOM IS A SPARTANSPARTANS DIE IN BATTLE
Good ending: both get out alive.Bad ending: Ruby gets out alive. Tom dies.Horrible ending: You know.Leaving on behind pretty much guarantees bad ending. If they both stay we can have either good ending or horrible ending. Lets make it interesting, people! Both stay and fight!
PLEASE say that person is Stitches. #6 Turned out to be a wimp so he's no help.F5ing like a mo-fo here
FIGHT HIM TOGETHER, YEAH!
There's still the "Significant twist" to be played.Stitches will arrive to the rescue!
>>3602015fuck you, there's always options. And Ruby can stay and Tom can survive.
RUBY stays with tom tehy both die for the sake of love
TOM MUST LIVE!!!!!
>>3601987KISS TOM OR YOU WILL LIVE IN SHAME FOREVER
ruby: i'd rather i stay and die, then live without you.
ruby, use third eyetom, get ready for the final epic conflictboth: dual monologue
RUBY IS STAYING AND THAT'S FINALGET UP THAT FUCKING LADDER CAT
>>3602015yeah fuck it, these two have been in this from basically the start, what's the point if just one gets away free? ALL OR NOTHING. HEAVEN OR HELL. LETS ROCK both of them can stay
A) Ruby refuses to leave, and Tom can't force her.orB) Tom and Ruby have sex because they won't be accepted in the real world anyway.
>>3601987Fuck no, Ruby isn't leaving him behind now, stay with him, meet your ends together, be happy in Valhalla.
START CLIMBINGSMASH WINDOWFLOOD FACILITY
Refuse. Make Tom go. We killed him once before, nows the chance to make it better. We can also communicate better with Stitches and #6, and as far as we know Ruby could go BATSHIT NUTS again on the surface.
FOR FUCK'S SAKE PEOPLE, JUST LEAVE TOM. THERE'S NO WAY TO SAVE HIM AND NO WAY TO BEAT ACE. YOU FUCKS WASTED TIME MAKING DECISIONS BEFORE, TOM PROBABLY DIED FROM THAT.
tom rip out ruby's heart and eat it, then escape. then they can live forever... TOGETHER FOREVER
>>3602036...AND SAY NO TO RAILROAD.
>>3602039You shut your whore mouth.
No, Tom, nooo. There has to be a way ;_;.Think harder /tg/ , damnit!
If Ruby goes up and Tom stays behind; Game over.If Tom goes up and Ruby stays behind; perhaps another session?Therefore; Tom Must go up.And Ruby must stay to stall Ace.
Oh fuck you Weaver. Fuck you right in your eye-sockets with barbed tentacles.Manly tears. Manly tears.Read note, drink champagne, hug Tom.
Both stay and fight it out, It's the only way to go after everything that has happened between them.
Ruby kisses tom goodbye.[cutscene!]
break the window to stall ace with rushing water
Oh you bastard!
You fucker, after all this you railroad us? I mean, even if Stitches DOES save us, the huge majority didn't want to leave.
Ruby climbs the ladder as quickly as she can.It's time to take a stand.
>>3602057dumbass, learn to tripcode
>>3602053>>3602071>>3602076It's an anonymous poster, not Weaver! Stop panicking!

alright. tom punch Ace in the balls with SMALL ARMS and pull a mortal kombat untill you knock ace off into the endless darkness.
>>3602099RIP OFF MASKBREAK WINDOWKILL THEM ALL
He wouldn't ignore all the people saying not to do this if there wasn't going to be Stitches or something coming along anyway. Calm the fuck down.
>>3602103seconded. The end was almost pure railroad.
except stitches is locked away right now...
>>3602116TOLD YA!TOM RUN!HAPPY END!
TOM GET THE FUCK UP THAT LADDER RIGHT NOW
>>3602116>>3602111he ignored it because he drew tom in this cutscene ahead of time.
>>3602116Yeah, who didn't see that coming :|
>>3602116STICHES!!!! YEEEESSSSS!!!!RUN TOM RUN!!!
Damn I thought you just ended the session!:-/
>>3602118LOCKER 5 IS OPEN!
>>3602116WEAVER I FORGIVE YOU NOWNOW GET THE FUCK OUTTA THERE AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER
>>3602116Don't fail your climb check now Tom, run like ffffffffffffffffff
>>3602114It was almost certainly for the newest post to happen. Tom lives, GOOD END occurs.
>>3602116You'll be always remembered Stitches.NOW TOM; GET YER ASS OUT OF THERE.
X( is that stitches or the hound
Tom takes this opportunity to get the fuck out.
Yay for not bashing his head in when we had the chance! Also, RUN YOU ONE-EYED BUGGER!
>>3602116break window, CLIMB LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER!
UR HUR HUR.Tom will try to escape, but Ruby will have already shut the hatch.
THANK YOU ALMIGHTY GOD FOR THE INVENTION THAT IS DEUS EX MACHINA!!
>>3602138climb you manly cat youCLIMB
>>3602146we were the ones who put stitches in the healing box. We didn't have to, but we chose to.
>>3602146I c wat u did thar.
>>3602138they climb out and are shot dead immedietly by executive decisions
>>3602146We did this. We didn't kill Stitches, instead we put him in the Enertron (but he's still hungry) and gave him the photo. Weaver said that what we did that day would be very significant, and that he didn't expect it.
>>3602159Really? Then I am converting to atheism RIGHT NOW!!
>>3602159In fact, we weren't suppose to have the tranq when we found Stitches (he had the key to the med cabinet). So, we could have killed him.
>>3602126>Yeah, who didn't see that coming :|Tom takes a moment to reflect on how tragic it is that sometimes actions have to have consequences, good or bad. Ruby is relieved beyond words that Tom made it up. She's also glad she saw him coming up before she slammed the hatch shut.Tom and Ruby close the door behind them.Jay has been loaded onto the tram.
in b4 red greets ruby and tom at the surface.
>>3602177ROLL OUT ON THE RAILROAD!
Open Champagne, operate tram.
>>3602177That's a familiar looking train. From a fanart too, yes?Leave. Don't wait for Stitches: He's dead. His heroic sacrifice will be remembered forever.
>>3602177Examine the tiny text above the intercom-thing.
Examine the little cabinet in the wall.
0_0 its all so clear now. IT WAS A REALITY GAME SHOW!
resident evil happens now
>>3602177YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT JAY THEREI DONT TRUST THAT FUCKER
>>3602176 Very good point. We smashed the cabinet open, proving once again that mindless violence solves everything.
>>3602177Read the writing above the.. intercom?
>>3602177Quickly, before we get on board, what does that tiny writing above the tiny door say? It could be damn important, like I RIGGED THE TRAM WITH A BOMB or something. READ DOOR
>>3602177Look around. Read tiny text.
>>3602177Shout obscenities into IntercomBoard tramDEPART POST HASTE
>>3602183>ROLL OUT ON THE RAILROAD!Ruby and Tom hop on the tram and survey the simple controls.Ruby opens the STEEL DOOR. Beyond it lies fresh air, and a long track leading to the mainland, leading over the water.
>>3602215READ INTERCOM/DOLOR/SAFE FIRST!
>>3602215NO! STOP! READ THE TEXT/OPEN THE CABINET FIRST!
read the tiny text
what did it say over the intercom btw weaver?
>>3602215Well, hopefully all the amnesia and sickness and shit was just stuff in that place, and won't follow them.
>>3602215Have Tom go: "CHOO CHOO"
The tram begins to move, leading out towards the land beyond.It's on an automated track, so it will continue on without Ruby or Tom needing to do anything.CHOO CHOO!
>>3602188Nooo! Don't drink and trolly! Ruby knows better!Also, before they leave, Ruby should access the intercom just in case it goes to a receiving party (with guns and fruit baskets) at the end of this line. First though, is love time.
I participated in something beautiful... *sniff*Thank you Weaver. :D ;D
>>3602232NOW would be a good time to talk.
>>3602232YOU RAILROADING FAGGOT, LET US READ THE SHIT FIRST! MOTHERFUCKER!
>>3602215Do we still have Red's hand? We should, right? We never discarded it that I know of. Maybe we'll have a fourth survivor out of this. Just need to make sure he's nice and locked up while regenerating
>>3602220It is not important!GTFO OF THERE!
Tom twiddles all four of his thumbs
The tram pulls away, leaving the station behind.
RAILROAD to FREDOM!!!Oh, you Weaver.
"Man tom, i am about to get SO familiar with the use of condoms"
>>3602232>It's on an automated track, so it will continue on without Ruby or Tom needing to do anything.HUG TOM
INCOMING CHASE SCENE!
Something bad is going to happenI CAN FEEL IT
BRACE FOR FINAL IMPACT.
>>3602251GET OUT OF HERE SDF, THIS IS NOT YOUR QUEST
>>3602251Fuck I lol'd hard
>>3602251NO JOHN, GET BACK TO JOAN FUCKINS.TOM AND RUBY HAVE HAD ENOUGH SHIT FOR ONE DAY.
>>3602251JOHN WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE EATING TRAMS. YOU'RE NOT A CERTIFIED TRAM DRIVER
>>3602251ohyou.jpg I chuckled
No two people are not on fire
F5'in like my life depends on it.DON'T BE FUCKING UP OUR SHIT WHEN WE'RE RAILROADING WEAVER D:
>>3602248Guys, I think this is the last one.
RUBY: so um... about that kiss...
>>3602288I... am suddenly overcome by sadness.
>>3602288last thread, yes.last post?FUCK NAW.
>>3602288If it is, that sucks.
Red appears on a jeep.Ruuuuuuuby!!It's not over yeeeet!!
>>3602288Sunset!>>3602293"I didn't mean it!" *Tsundere*
Closing paragraph is taking too long
>>3602299X> i lol'd
>>3602288What if they get to the mainland and it's COVERED IN ABOMINATION because the people in charge of the Glen released the Treatment to the public?
COME THE HELL ON WEAVER
Jay and Tom throw ruby off the tram and have man sex
Naw, we have to see them riding off into the sunset
>>3602316okay*fap fap fap*
Suddenly, when they get out, all their memories return!They remember everything!Turns out Ruby and Tom liked each other from the beginning!And that Ruby is pregnant!And that they're both Time Lords!
This is either going to be an epic last scene, or the bit where rocks fall and everyone dies. Either way, I think Weaver really wants to do this one justice :P
>>3602314That's ruby quest 2
o_____o the tension
Ruby and Tom head towards land as the tram slowly crosses the land bridge.Jay sleeps at the fore of the tram, recovering from his ordeal.Tom tosses away all the NOTES he's been collecting. He is happy just to be alive.He never wants to READ another NOTE as long as he lives.
This is just like an MGS ending...?
>>3602351Now! Sudden memory return!
>>3602351In before Ruby goes psycho again.
>>3602351That's some spazzy sunset there, Weaver. Good job.
Why am I half expecting an "IT'S SO DARK! *fwoomph*"?
weaver, if you turn this into a novel, ill buy ten copies preorder i swear
Tom breaks out the champagne. He and Ruby decide now is a good time to celebrate.They pour, they toast, they drink.To freedom.
and then, Jay mutates into something even more horrible than anything they've seen yet. >:3
This is the point where everyone will spam "HUG TOM"s
>>3602351And then, suddenly, Ruby and Tom have sex right there on the moving tram floor!Yeah. Is this the last post, Weaver? :c
>>3602351WHERE IS THE LAND, I SEE NO LAND!
I see 98.I presume this builds to a 100.
>>3602369Now! Seal it all with a kiss!
>>3602369IT'S POISON! D8
>>3602369Anyone else think Jay looks as cute as hell in the last two pics?
>>3602384he's gonna stop at 101 just to piss your ocd ass off.
>>3602388Aww. I'd've liked the kiss.Still, great job with an awesome adventure, Weaver! Congratulations everyone from good end! Champagne to everyone!
Not good end....LAME END
>>3602388Thankyou, Weaver, for putting up with all of Anons shit and continuing Ruby Quest.Kudos.
Wait a...FUCK YOU, WEAVER! HOW MUCH DID YOU NOT TELL US?
>>3602388I DON'T WANT IT TO END!
Good show weaver, thanks.
>>3602388Damn it weaver, post the ears so I know it's over
>>3602406FUCK YOU MOTHER FUCKER9001/210 POINTS
>>3602388Thank you Weaver! Really.
But... but we didn't see Red any more!
Awesome. Just wonderful.Okay, now let's get to work on the flash game.
>>3602371goddamnit, poor shy Ruby, there's that guy they saved, no sex for now :(
Thank you for not doing some lame surprise plot twist at the end like Ruby killing Tom or Jay flipping out. HAPPY END!
Yay!This was fun. You should do more (as though you didn't go through enough hell the first time).
>>3602388God show Weaver. Thanks for the ride.
the last lines of that peom..., mean to me... moar.leaving people trapped in hell... not an ending.
Time for awesome fanart!Then time for an awesome computer game that will tell all the answers we missed!
There's no image macro for the amount of awesome this thread deserves.
1/200 points collected
Bravo, bravo! Thank you, Weaver, thank you. I believe there shan't be a phenomenon as remarkable as this again in the future of /tg/. Really, thank you.
Bravo, my good man. Bravo.
and they lived happily ever after with extra eyes and arm for the rest of their lives
Somebody needs to write up RubyQuest as a proper novel.Weaver, go talk to /x/.We have some wonderful writers/authors over there that could make this epic.
At the end we hear Red talking on the phone to someone.
There are still a lot of questions unanswered.
So what about #6? Killing Filbert with rage didn't mean anything? What use did saving Jay have?I dunno, but I feel like the ending is kinda boring compared to the amount of mindfuck and awesome this series started with (The dummy for example still gives me the chills)
>>3602452Second. I bet they would just eat this shit up, too.
>>3602388I just discovered the Ruby quest archives three days ago and I've had a hell of a time reading them. today i had to call in sick to work since I've barley slept all nigth due to violent throwups. and in an attempt to cheer myself upp I went to /tg/ to partake in some rage and shit, and what did I stumble upon? I fucking love you Weaver! thanks for glorifying this otherwise puke-ridden day, I have really enjoyed rubys quest ^^
guys, it hasn't ended yet. we still don't know what happened after the last frame. they could have died in a giant explosion and the poem would still be true.
ruby and emo bird have 6 kids.Tom goes off to create myspace.Ace opens a bar and grill in a small town in ohio.Stitches gets a job in a korean sweatshop Hound lands a contract with an adult modeling studio.6 dies.
>>3602457The dummy, if you'll recall, shows up in the Cold Storage, mounted at the top of the wall.As for the rest, we can only postulate. Weaver has said there will be no comprehensive encyclopedia.
I agree too much shit left unsaid... it's droll to have an ending like this
>>3602455>>3602457Second. I want to hear it all. I think Weaver should go for the Silent Hill ending and tell us, nonetheless.
Stitches didn't even get a big heroic fuckoff awesome IMMA SAVING THE DAY scene. He just appears, lunges, disappears.
Too bad we didn't see more of #6. He was awesome.
Still half-expecting red in a jeep now that someone said it.
Oh god, so many loose ends.
Red: Hello? Yes, its me. Yes, they got out..........No, no they never found it. It all went as it should have..............No they thought it was the other one.In the end, No one realized that I was Ace. Talk to you soon...Mr President.
Weaver, please tell us! Tell us everything! Release us of this horrible pain!
I-i-i....I am s-so happy. *baaaaaaawwwww*
someone post the archive...i feel ive missed something :(
>>3602369A better ending, duh. :3I've played this game. You have to play through about sixteen thousand times to get all the endings.
>>3602493biggest understatement of the new year, ammirite?
So are we getting some scissors and then coming back?
>>3602503THAT ONLY RAISES MORE QUESTIONS
if this doesnt become a novel im going to be pissed. DONT SCREW THIS UP WEAVER!
I expected more. Sequel, anyone?read the textbox.
>>3602503Well I just shat myself.
>>3602502>>3602499thanks guys. will get to work on this
>>3602503HOLY SHIT WHAT?
>>3602503I FUCKING KNEW IT. SOMETHING IS UP.
>>3602503[17:45:46] <TG_Weaver> it isn't over yet
>>3602503if your intent on continuingthis you have my full support... I knew this was a proper and and surely you did too.
>>3602503Glorious! Weaver, you old bastard!
SADFKHRASHDASVDSA WEAVER YOU FUCKER
jay is subject 6!!!!
I think it's important to point out that, on IRC, there are 79 people including weaver.You should have SEEN the reaction to that last scrap of paper ;D
>>3602503Who the fuck is the tom we know then?
>>3602546MY HEAD JUST EXPLODED
>>3602546It starts over for Maddie! Or #8 or whatever.
MADDIE QUEST! ... or is that Daisy?
>>3602547The reaction to Ruby pushing Stitches over the railing was better.
>>3602546I'M TRIPPING BALLS
>>3602546haha, oh wow
More question endings jesus
>>3602546And so it comes full circle.Weaver, I hereby award you the Eldrad Official Symbol of Dickery, and the Cthulhu Citation of Mindfuckery.
Seriously start it all over you will be much more epic for it
What are they symbols?I'm assuming it says THE END but I can't see them.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN I DONT EVEN
THAT'S RUBYSUBJECT 6 JUST ESCAPED WITH TOM AND JAY
So there's two Toms. Ours number six, the unpredictable maniac (he's over it by now, though). Nook's five.I still reckon this was pretty good ending.
>>3602546But.. why...Dammit Weaver, you magnificent bastard, I hate you so much I think I just died a little inside.
>>3602547Can you post some reactions? I love reading those :D
>>3602546Hey! It's Daisy!Daisy! HUG STITCHES
>>3602546Oh god what?!
But that means "Subject 6" is 5....And Tom is 6....Oh dear.
WHAAAAAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUCK!?
Okay, during Daisy Quest, we'll have to work hard so that we'll find out those things about Ruby and Tom too.
>>3602603Nah, he's over it by now.
Thanks for your request.It has been added to our database and the thread will be archived as soon as enough request for that thread have been made.This thread has been requested 1 times now.
Long ears, skirt, Ruby.Our "Ruby" is subject 6. Dunno what the whole Tom thing means. A clone?
>>3602546What does it say >:[
Please tell me your done posting for today, Weaver.
THAT WASN'T A CONCLUSION! THAT DIDN'T EXPLAIN ANYTHING!IN FACT THAT WAS A NEGATIVE EXPLANATION! YOU TOOK AWAY OUR ANSWERS WEAVER!I demand satisfaction! Pistols at dawn, sah!
Wait. Do we know who 3 and 4 are? 1's Stitches, 2 is Maddie, 5 is Tom Nook, 7 is Ruby, 8 is Daisy, and we've got Jay, Tom, and Sven left to fil out the rest.It'd be hilarious if Sven was 6
For the record and the Sup/tg/ Archive, I'm laying down how, I believe, this is to go.Ruby is Subject 7. There are also two Toms (as there are in Animal Crossing)- Tom Nook, and Tom the Cat. Nook is Subject 5, who we BELIEVED was Subject 6. The photo reinforces this.Tom the Cat is the actual Subject 6, who we believed (and so did he) was Subject 5. Subject 6 is purportedly psychopathic etc.; Tom's utter destruction of Filbert reinforces this.However, he appears to have gotten better.Also, the person in the coffin at the end is most likely Subject 8. This follows the logical skip-progression that Red was using every third subject (2, 5, 8) in his whatchadoozit experiments, plus all three of them were female (which may not be important, but it's worth noting).
"Subject #6: unpredictable and violent behaviour"Tom ripping apart Filbert...
[17:54:38] <TG_Weaver> <Jik> WHAT WAS ABOVE THE INTERCOM/CABINET IN THE TRAM ROOOOM[17:54:57] <TG_Weaver> Basically it just said "please press intercom call button and wait for head security officer to grant admission"
>>3602614Could easily be Daisy or a regenerated Maddie.
WEAVER IT ISN'T OVER YETYOU HAVE NOT POSTED THE EARSI DEMAND THE EARS SO THIS WILL BE A PROPER ENDING
So Tom isn't really tom. And..Oh my god. Thanks for making me BAWW again, Weaver.Now I feel like shit because poor Tom was trapped.. and.. Ruby..But anyway, MaddieQuest should kick ass.She's much more lovable than Ruby.
>>3602641Well at least that's settled.
<TG_Weaver> I love how nobody caught on and everyone's just like BOY IT SURE IS A COINCIDENCE THERE ARE TWO PATIENTS NAMED TOM
>>3602660>Now I feel like shit because poor Tom was trapped.. and.. Ruby..Ruby was always together with this Tom, though. They kissed in that video and all.
Haaang on a second.Ruby was making out with Tom in the videos, right? Or at least, who we assume to be Ruby.But then Tom, the REAL Tom, mentioned that he was "Tom, the love of your life.".I'm so confused.
>>3602668They're both purportedly psychotic, even though they don't remember it.At the very worst, they'll do a Bonnie and Clyde, launching a campaign to tour the world and stomp everyone else under the jackboot heel of their love.
>>3602638>>Tom's utter destruction of Filbert reinforces this.Now that I think about it, doesn't this also explain Tom's seemingly random bouts of "Man it sure felt good to smash that stuff with my crowbar."
>>3602681>But then Tom, the REAL Tom, mentioned that he was "Tom, the love of your life.".He also thought Ruby was Lucy.
Wait, so if this has happened dozens of times in the past... It can happen again.Weaver, start over! We can change things this time! We know more! Red will not die! Jay will be healed, Ace will be defeated!BETTER ENDING. WE MUST GET IT.
>>3602684>Now that I think about it, doesn't this also explain Tom's seemingly random bouts of "Man it sure felt good to smash that stuff with my crowbar."I TOLD YOU THIS WAS RELEVANT BUT DID YOU LISTEN
>>3602617But Tom tried to kill Ruby in that video, now that we know he is psychotic as well. They make a great insane couple.
If i recall, didn't weaver say that during the cutscene where ruby kills tom we could see subject 6? We know ruby is subject 7, so......gah! why didn't I see it sooner!? I'm an idiot
>>3602694The madness was brought from the facility, and it will stay there. They'll be sane from now on.
>>3602687That is a good point.So who is the new chick?Maddie or Daisy?
Well, that's the true end, everyone. I hope you had as much fun playing as I did running this little campaign for you.It's been a long run but it's finally over. All stories have to come to an end sooner or later.Thanks for your patience, your support, and your encouragement. It's been a blast.Also: Some people have been asking to donate, and I'm a little hesitant to accept free money from strangers but if you honestly feel like just throwing money at me I am not too proud to accept it. If you weren't going to or think it's a ridiculous idea then please continue as you were. For the few crazy people who think this was somehow worth money, I'm flattered, just drop me a PM on IRC.
BRING BACK RED.
Animal Crossing had two Tom. Weaver is fucking with your heads, and doing a damn good job of it.
>>3602707Will you tell us all the answers if we donate enough?
>>3602696fuck! YOUR RIGHT!!
Everyone BAAAWING over number 6 being our TOM.Look at it this way. Ruby was just as much a psychopath before now. We don't know what caused her insane behavior. This just means the guy we ran off with MATCHES. Though it seems TOM is better to the point where he won't use violence if he doesn't need to, and he has been protective of Ruby.They shall be a happy couple, and possibly go on a killing spree together. GOOD END. Tom Nook? Too far gone to ever ever help. And quite absolutely freaking insane.
GODDAMNIT, HOW DID WE MISS THIS. From 1d4chan, summary of the timeline:>November 1: Red takes actions leading to his detainment in cell 6 (probably a suicide attempt). Subject 6 already in brig. ♠ becomes '?' in at least one department's memoranda. >Subject 6 already in brig.>SUBJECT 6 IN BRIG
>>3602724No no, as I said, they're good now. No more mad shit. It was all from the Glen.
>>3602710Too bad. I come from /x/, and therefore everything is a conspiracy.Tom Nook was #5. And, if I remember correctly, the "don't trust Ruby" note was in his locker.So what reason did he have to not trust her?
>>3602707I'd pay price of admission to my local theater (about $8.50) at least once for each thread you started, as I have taken at least equivilent enjoyment from each RubyQuest thread as I would have from seeing any movie.Alas I am FUCKING BROKE.
>>3602707 Lame end
Weaver, I think I'm going to track you down - yeah from the other side of the world - and squeeze all the answers out of you!
>>3602724If this is the case, I fear for Jay. Unless he's also a bloody psychopath instead of just EMOBIRD. Then, they all get to have a nice, murderous, abominationy romp throughout the world.
TG_Weaver> Okay to clear things up: Maddie died and was never reanimated. Her body was destroyed.<TG_Weaver> The "Hound" abomination was Subject #8, Daisy.
>>3602764This is what I thought.
>>3602728True. As I said. Ruby was just as dangerous. Just not physically powerful as Tom. She was much SNEAKIER though. She didn't get a note because Red kept it secret so the research could go on. And everyone else was JUST as psychotic and insane at some point or another. We could only escape by looking past this fact and living in the now. Right now they weren't insane monsters, and it would remain so as long as they didn't die again.
>>3602764Too bad. I still love Maddie. <3
>>3602707Check score table. Restart game.
There IS going to be a game about this, as you talked about, right? And Weaver is going to be involved, and tell all the answers, right?Better too.
ok, time for spoilers and extras, and secrets we missed.I'm pretty sure we rated like 120/200 or so. We missed a bunch of stuff. Manequin. Brig. Drawings. WTF happened to Ace. What did the blue pipe do. I'd hate to think I'll never know.
Did Weaver ever explain what the deal was with the disappearing room?
>>3602794Seconded. This thing will consume me for the rest of my life.Or a few weeks at least.
>>3602794I honestly believe that Ace was just a perfectly sane, is somewhat one-track-minded orderly until we smashed the fetus-statue in his face.Bella said that he hadn't been listening to her recently, and the statue is now in his little room.Plus the creepyshit blood patterns all over the room/himself.
I'm convinced there will eventually be RUBYQUEST 2.0
Why the fuck was Stitches actual name Stiches when we only called him Stitches because he was covered in actual stiches when we saw him
>>3602814We never smashed the statue at him.
>>3602727WE DIDN'T MISS IT I FUCKING TOLD EVERYONE IN IRC AND THEY LAUGHED AT MEalso cruise control
>>3602546Weaver, you are awesome.
>>3602802John broke the brig. HAPPY?
>>3602814>>3602819yep, we smashed the case, releasing the trap mechanism at him. The statue was never used.
>>3602819We still smashed the case.
YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS FOLKSsave some caffeine for the next season ofTHE METAL GLEN doo doo doo doo doo dam dwooooooooOOOOOoooooo....
>>3602825It hardly matters.Without him we wouldn't have escaped. The flock that works together..Also, the notes can be misleading(just as we believed nook was 6 because we read to much into the notes). They call him DANGEROUS, but there were much more dangerous things than TOM hanging around. Tom only happened to get a special mention cause he is the one that got noticed before EVERYTHING WENT OUT OF CONTROL. Otherwise everyone would have been labeled and locked up.Really, the only purpose knowing 6 was dangerous served was to make us unnecessarily paranoid about getting Nook's help. It wasn't about OH HAI TOM KILLS YOU AFTER THE CREDITS. It was to freak us out. SO COOL IT.
That was awesome.HUG WEAVER
>>3602859>Really, the only purpose knowing 6 was dangerous served was to make us unnecessarily paranoid about getting Nook's help. I feel sorry for poor Nook now.
At any rate, measures must now be taken since the saga is complete.The 1d4chan page needs updating, and so does the TvTropes article.
Wait, what was the familiar voice that shouted curses at Tom through the intercom earlier?
>>3602707There better be a fucking sequel.Dear lord. This was amazing.
>>3602815I'd rather see something different. Something with guns and explosions. The blood levels seem to already be adequate.Some crazy revenge story without amnesia and confusion. With extreme car chases and high-octane anger.The hero could be called... Timozabeth.
>>3602881I'd be good with some answers.LET'S HEAR ABOUT THOSE ANSWERS WEAVERWHY WOULDN'T YOU LET US READ ALL THE NOTES WHEN I SUGGESTED IT
<TG_Weaver> That good end <TG_Weaver> I drew it <TG_Weaver> The marriage one I mean Hehehe.
>>3602902tom isn't in this one
>>3602902It means that's canon?Cool!More answers, please!
THANK YOU, WEAVER!YOU ROCK!
>>3602876Yes, Nook was crazed from his injuries and mutations, but he wasn't actually dangerous.We came in expecting him to kill us. So we saw what we wanted. Masterful on Weaver's part. Tom never posed a secret danger. It was about making us too scared to get the help we needed. If we got Nook's full support it all probably would have gone lots easier. Nook probably did just want to help.. and cuddles. That's all... that's all..
>>3602859I'm not saying it matters I'm just reacting violently after pointing it out and arguing for a couple hours and then some guy comes on here saying OH MY GOD HOW DID WE MISS THIS
>>3602922If we had taken his full support, we might've had the best ending. Too bad.
Too bad it was all in her mind...
Weaver, thank you for this insane and sometimes beautiful story. It is unforgettable.:teardrop:
Aw poo. We could have saved Nook too? We suck. However, remember there must have been a VERY good reason everyone hid the scissors from him.
I am inrigued to see how subject zero fares in the metal glen
>Posts: 633I'm proud of you, /tg/.
>>3602960The last thread had nearly 900
>>3602922But, when ruby looks into lab B with her third eye she gets the imprssion that the inhabitant "seems very distinctly unfriendly". Personally,I think Nook was almost certainly a danger, avoiding him was the best policy in the long run, even if he was okay in the beginning he was quite definatly insane at the end. I've also been wondering, how did Nook get inside the locked lab B?
>>3602952Fuck, I know why. To cut himself. To cut himself free of the growth. Damn it! We COULD have saved him.Bum clouds!
>>3602946"Gentlemen, our project was clearly a failure. A single mind cannot change the course of history. I'm afraid we have to pull the plug on this endeavour."AND THEN RUBY WAS NEMO
>>3602981ace put him there clearly
>>3602928It was staring us in the face all along.Subject Six was confined. The notes said it. That is where we found Tom. Something else mentioned a subject being confined to Lab B. We jumped to the wrong conclusion because we didn't want to believe our Tom was dangerous. We WANTED him to be good.Even worse, which Tom got their hands damaged in the z hatch? We assumed it was ours and the hands just grew back from the treatment. Obviously not. Nook was missing hands(and more), and we know from the most recent batch of notes that the REGENERATIVE POWERS HAVE LIMITS. It can't replace something that just isn't there, but it can fix problems. If you lose an arm you have to either sew it back on and let the voodoo work or you don't have an arm. It won't regrow the whole limb. Just reanimate against all odds. We stabbed tom.. where..? In the gut. Guess where his mutation is.
>>3602996Our Tom was always subject 6. He died after Ruby attacked him, remember? What if he lost his memories? Maybe he doesn't REMEMBER being subject 6?He IS Tom. He's just not the Tom we thought he was.
>>3602922There there,pillow butt. You'll get a chance to save him in Maddiequest, right?Assuming he's not in a filthy mood for being abandoned.
>>3602996Well, I'm quite confident that it was this Tom we were always romantically involved with, and that there will be no more psychotic attacks or sudden power surges and violent outbursts, because it was all in the Glen.They'll have a happy ending. I guess I could be content with that. If Weaver doesn't cough up what he knows.
>>3602992That would make sense, perhaps to contain his hideous fleshy eye mutations
>>3602996But he also lost an eye and that area didn't mutate further.
>>3602996I regret that I do not have any "response" type images with expressions serious enough for these posts.We fooled ourselves. We actively deluded ourself to keep up the idea that the Cat wasn't the evil one. My GOD. We found him in a cell THEY DUG UP AFTER THE COMPLEX WAS BUILT because they had to confine someone THAT BADLY. We found TOM in the place they went way our of their way to build. Yet we ignored this. Even I had the revelation at one point that all the evidence pointed toward our Tom being the one that was confined for being highly dangerous. The notes logically said that the cat was the dangerous Tom. Yet I quickly laughed it away. No way, I thought. He's our Tom. Our Tom can't be bad.Our conclusions were founded on emotion rather than logic..
>>3603022What if Tom became "dangerous" because Ruby went psycho on him and murdered him? That would explain a few things.- Ruby murders Tom- Tom goes batshit- Tom gets slapped in prison- ????- Tom forgets- Ruby forgets- Tom and Ruby escape, have a thousand three-eyed four-armed cabbit babies and annoy the fuck out of environmentalists.
>>3603028Because Ruby didn't do it. More pointing towards Ruby being the "carrier" for this mutation. Except I thought we'd disproven that already...
>>3603035Could be.But if Tom was locked up in Upper Lab B, how did he end up to the Brig? How did Nook end up in Lab B in his stead?Really, there still isn't any real evidence that Tom was #6. Though he probably was.
>>3603028Correction.Tom was dragged off by Filbert while he was half conscious and the eye removed. It WAS mutating at that point, and that is why Filbert removed it.HE CUT THE BAD OUT
>>3603047Pay attention. Tom was never Subject 5. He's Subject 6. The OTHER Tom was put in Lab B.
>>3603035This shit has been on repeat for the last year. Tom and Ruby constantly forgetting each time they try to escape. This time they succeeded.Shit started to go down in October, but those weren't the last dates we found in the notes. Yet we escaped in.. OCTOBER.We were there for at least a year. If not more. Endlessly repeating the process of trying to get out. Forgetting each and every time.
>>3603068That's right.He was said to be put in the Lab B. How did he do the switcharoo with Nook?
>>3602981>But, when ruby looks into lab B with her third eye she gets the imprssion that the inhabitant "seems very distinctly unfriendly"The eye could've been lying to Ruby. For all we know, the eye was evil.
>>3603079But the notes and recordings and other shit stopped appearing after the last november. That's when things really went bad.I guess we'll never know what happened during that year. The Year That Never Was.
Here's a though- if Subject 6 was so dangerous that not only did they lock him in a lab with SUPER RESTRICTED ACCESS, but BUILT A BRIG JUST FOR HIM, why was he able to be in a private room with Ruby?
>>3603082The BRIG we found Tom in was dug out after the complex was already built. LONG after the tests were underway. It was done so that they could have a place to put Subject Six that was actually secure. Lab B was a temporary measure.They must have transfered him at some point.
>>3603087The eye tried to FUCKING KILL US.Of course it was bad.
>>3603082Ahhhh. I forgot that one. Well done.Good, fuck Nook then. Let him rot with the others.
So, how did those previous escape attempts end? Dead and reforumulated? Captured by Ace and imprisoned again? Why the memory loss?Oh, here's one for you: Were Ruby's hallucinations actually memories of weird shit that happened previous times?
>>3603127And they would have put up a note about it for everyone to see in the locker room, to replace the old one.
>>3603126 November 8: Ruby attacks Tom in the medical room. Stabbed many times, bleeds out, and dies. Confirmed to have died by F. November 23: Subject #6 Isolated in upper Lab B. Only Ace authorized to allow contact.
>>3603148An entire year past. Notice how fucked up shit is?Notice how most of the notes are HALF MISSING?Of course we never found a notice. It was gone by then.
>>3603170And the old note mysteriously replaced the new one. Nah.I just think that during the Year That We Will Never Know Of, Tom somehow ended up in Brig, and Nook in Lab B. We can only guess what really happened during that time.
>>3603138On at least some of them they probably found notes saying TOM IS 6 or found out earlier that RUBY IS MURDERER, leading to them killing each other
>>3603179Not new, dipshit, just undamaged. Paper doesn't just disintegrate. Also, there WERE notes relating to the digging up of the brig to DETAIN a CERTAIN SOMEONE. We just ignored it.
>>3603188If either of our protagonists had died since the deaths we're aware of, wouldn't they have more mutations from the trauma?
Did Weaver stop questing with Ruby or can we look forward to Timozabeth's Revenge (or something entirely different)?
>>3603226We apparently get Thursday Quest on Thursday. Starring Thursday.
Here's some good music for the ending: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cZiKuZikMI
Also calling all drawfags! I'm compeletely certain that our Tom's (Six) last name is Baker! I will now request you to draw him in a funny hat and suit and really long scarf!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Doctor
Sad to see it come to an end, but nice work, Weaver. Thank you for the hard work.
I present to you Dr.Shttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dcaHeSjS_I
>>3603353*Grabs Weaver by the throat before he gets away*ANSWERS DAMMIT! TELL US EVERYTHING!
>>3603405That's not Weaver dumbass.
>>3603405>>3603424Um... He just filled the namefield with Weaver's name and tripcode. Hence the Tripcode part being Boldfont
>>3603425Oh.*Punches him anyway for a few times, to vent off aggression*
If anyone's interested in a compilation of Ruby Quest threads, Weaver's posts only, all images saved locally, I've uploaded it at http://rapidshare.com/files/193468282/ruby_quest.zip .Made from threads saved to suptg, all 31 parts.If I fucked something up with rapidshare account and only 10 people can download then someone not as stupid as me please reupload.If there are any problems with the html file, especially with that funny font Weaver used, fix them yourselves (file made on Linux, utf-8, valid transitional).
all hail the Weaver!
Weaver needs to make a book or a comic out of this. Epic.
>>3603517A book or comic that will actually tell us all the answers.
>>3603277full IRC log of that:[17:18] <TG_Weaver> coming soon[17:18] * NoNoNo (~chatzilla@Rizon-77E23B07.rhhe1.2wcm.comporium.net) Quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.84 [Firefox 3.0.5/2008120121])[17:18] <Kitfox88> Cocks are pretty cool[17:18] * Makrond wanders out, his lust for speculation sated[17:18] <TG_Weaver> thursdayquest[17:18] <Xom> OH SHIT[17:18] <MrQ> weaver really is doing a lot of stuff[17:18] <TG_Weaver> starring thursday[17:18] <Xom> xD[17:18] * Makrond (~Makrond@Rizon-EE4881EC.kelvn1.qld.optusnet.com.au) Quit (Quit: "Many strangenesses of Internet Explorer have been attributed to excessive use of the word fuck")[17:18] <Octodummy> THOR[17:18] <Kitfox88> THORSDAY?[17:18] <Octodummy> THORQUEST[17:18] <Spiku> I'll pass[17:18] <MrQ> THURSDAY WAS HERE[17:18] <Underscore> THOR'S DAY.[17:18] <Spiku> I hear thursday is gay[17:18] <Xom> THOR'S HAMMER[17:18] <MrQ> THURSDAY'S A LOSER
Honestly Weaver, it'd be so damn sadistic of you to not tell us everything.
>>3603683Question and answer session on IRC tomorrow! What time? Who knows!God I hope someone screen captures it.
>>3603749Is this piece of information coming from Weaver himself? Why can't he do it in 4chan so the rest of us could see it, and he could show pictures too?
>>3603772A brilliant question indeed.
>>3603772he only has a handful of unused pictures we didn't get to see, most of it was on the fly so he didn't end up putting a lot of time into drawings that weren't even going to be used
>>3603880He could make some more art.
Dear lord.Just reread the entire thing.Jesus.Fucking.CHRIST.Weaver, I would nominate that you take this to a producer. This would make an amazing book/comic/graphic novel/animated noir film.
Also know something strange? I'm feeling almost worse that Ruby and Tom didn't learn this stuff, than that we didn't.Hopefylly they'll regain their memories. Life would have its hardships anyway for a while if they had no idea about their past.
Do we know that our Tom's name is actually Tom?
>>3604174It is. Looks exactly like one another Tom from Animal Crossing. Confirmed by Weaver, IIRC.
