Daisy's sitting on the most isolated swingset, alone, twiddling her fingers and staring at the pebbles beneath her feet. Looking at her makes you feel funny, and also makes you want to get her attention. So that's just what you'll do!You stroll up to her casually, trying to look cool. "Whatcha doin'?"She looks up at you, her expression a little frightened. "Um... sitting. D-did you want the swing?" She starts to get out of the swing, but you stop her with a quick gesture."No, um, I'll push you!" This is it! This is your 'in'! At least, that's what your dad called it, when he was explaining this stuff to you! You didn't really get it, but you think this is how you make her your friend!You get behind her, and start pushing her back and forth. She wraps her hands around the swing's chains as you push her faster and faster, and she starts giggling and kicking her legs! You've really got her now!When recess ends, she gets off the swing, staring at your feet as she talks. "Um, th-thanks," she mumbles, toying with her hands awkwardly.You put your fists on your hips, giving your best Superman pose. "No need to thank me! I was just doing my duty to help a girl in need!"She gives a little giggle, shyly looking up at you, her head still bowed low. Her laugh makes your insides warm up, like you just drank some hot cocoa, but it's more in your chest instead of on your tongue or in your throat."You're funny," she says.You were going for cool, but you'll take it.After recess is lunch. Daisy always sits alone.>Have her eat with you and your friends. She needs more friends! You never see her with anybody!>Ask to eat at her table today! You're not sure how your friends would react, or how Daisy would react to meeting your friends!>Don't eat with her! You don't want to come on too strong! Maybe tomorrow would be better.>Write-in.

>>36080413>implying Alma would need to force me
>>36080307Ask to eat at her table today! You're not sure how your friends would react, or how Daisy would react to meeting your friends!
You suck in a deep breath, summoning up all your courage. You're going to ask to eat with her! That's major! That's seriously major! "Daisy!" Daisy flinches because of how loud you are, so you try to speak with your 'inside voice.' "Why don't I eat with you?"Daisy stares at your belly while she plays with the fingers on one of her hands awkwardly. "U-um, i-if you want to, you can," she says at last, her voice small.You let out a massive sigh of relief. Whew! You were so worried she was going to say no!During lunch, you sit down next to Daisy, waving off your friends. Daisy seems really shy around them, so maybe it was a good thing. Before you can start to dig into your mini-pizza Lunchable, though, Daisy stops you."W-wait!" Her voice is surprisingly loud, and some people turn to look at you, making Daisy curl in on herself in shame. "U-um, we should give thanks to God, before we eat. So He doesn't get mad at us.""Wow, I never even realized you could make God mad like that..." You trail off in thought, hoping really badly that He's not too angry at you for failing to pray all those other times. "You're really smart, Daisy!"Daisy's cheeks turn a rosy pink when you say that, and she bows her head, bringing her hands together in prayer. You just follow her lead and say "Amen" when she's done. You figure she's more experienced with the whole praying thing than you, after all!As you start to eat, you quickly realize that Daisy's too shy to start any conversation on her own! She's just sitting there, quietly eating her peanut butter and jelly sandwich while occasionally glancing up at you. If you're going to talk about something, you're going to have to be the one to bring it up.>Ask about how she knows so much about God!>Ask her what she does for fun. You like to play tag with your friends, and watch cartoons!>Ask her why she sits alone all the time. She's really pretty! She should have loads of friends!>Write-in.
>>36080746>Ask her why she sits alone all the time. She's really pretty! She should have loads of friends!>Ask about how she knows so much about God!See? She's pretty AND smart.
>>36080746>Ask her why she sits alone all the time. She's really pretty! She should have loads of friends!>Ask her what she does for fun. You like to play tag with your friends, and watch cartoons!
>>36080762We could mix in her interests and cartoons, but not too much about our friends so she doesn't get uncomfortable
>>36080746>Ask her why she sits alone all the time. She's really pretty! She should have loads of friends!
"So, um, why do you sit alone all the time?" Daisy turns her eyes up to look at you, her lip quivering nervously. "I just mean - you're really pretty! You should have lots of friends."Daisy just stares at you, her big eyes focused on yours. She takes another bite of her sandwich."You should be really popular! You're smart and pretty and cool..."That makes her blush again, and her eyes turn down to her sandwich which she hungrily scarfs down without another word, despite your pestering. When she finishes it, she starts to rummage through her lunch bag, apparently hoping there's more food so she can excuse herself from talking."You can tell meeeee," you whine, laying your head on the table as you do so."U-um," Daisy says, pulling her head away from her brown lunch bag, apparently having discovered it empty. "P-people say I'm weird... and evil... and stuff...""Well, that's ridiculous!" You say, springing up so your back is straight. "You're not weird, or evil! You're cool!""Y-you really think so?"You nod eagerly, your head bouncing up and down like a spring. "Yeah! Like, you knew that thing about God wanting you to thank Him before you eat, and you're pretty, and you're nice, and..." you trail off, awkwardly. "Anyway! You're definitely cool.""Th-thanks," she manages. "B-but most people don't think that...""Then they're wrong!" You exclaim, jumping out of your seat and yelling so loud that everyone in the cafeteria looks at you. You sit back down, but the bell rings at the same time, so you wind up having to leave.You don't share any classes with Daisy, so you don't get to see her the rest of the school day.When parents are coming to pick up their kids, you see her sitting alone at an isolated bench, reading a book.>Just watch her! You don't want to come off as weird.>Sit with her!>Talk to her some more!>Bring one of your friends over to meet her!>Write-in.
>>36081013>Sit with her!Put our hand on her lap! Make the first move!
>>36081013>Sit with her!
>>36081013>Talk to her some more!Ask if she'd be okay with spending time with us tommorow too.
>>36081013>Talk to her from here!!! Hi Daisy!!!!!!
>>36081013>Just watch her! You don't want to come off as weird.kek
>>36081013>Talk with her some more.
>>36081013>Talk to her some more>Hey do you think God made Godzilla?"
>>36081013Etiher>>Just watch her! You don't want to come off as weird.with waving/smiling to her if she looks towards us, or>>Sit with her!>>Talk to her some more!
>>36081164"Who do you think would win in a fight, God or Godzilla?a"
>>36081228Well, if we're talking God as in YHWH, then definitely him, since Godzilla couldn't exactly hurt him, and he can do some freaky shit.
>>36081263That's stupid.God's only God, Godzilla has a longer name which makes him more important.Of course Godzilla's stronger.
You skip over to where Daisy is sitting and reading. She looks up at you, a little frightened at first, then pulls her book closer to her face, so all you can see are her eyes as she looks up at you. "Hi," she mumbles."Hi! Can I sit here?" You point to the bench she's sitting at."Y-yeah, d-do you want me to move?""No! I wanna sit next to you.""O-oh. Okay," she manages, her shoulders bunched up near her neck in tension.You need to break the ice... what's something you know she likes... you've got it! "How do you think God made Godzilla?""Wh-what's Godzilla?" Daisy asks, her book still pulled up really close to her face."You don't know who Godzilla is?" She shakes her head again. "Oh, man! He's this awesome monster, like a T-Rex, but he breathes radiation, and-""What's a T-Rex?"Your eyes go wide. She doesn't know what a T-Rex is?! You stand up, holding your elbows tight to your ribcage as you gesture. "It's a dinosaur! It's like, a giant lizard that eats people, and it's got a huge teeth, like rargh," you demonstrate with a snap of your jaws. You continue to explain and demonstrate to her what a T-Rex is, and, by extension, what Godzilla is. She starts to giggle at some of your wilder reenactments.All of the sudden, Daisy stands up quickly, looking over past you. You look, and you see a woman driving a pick-up truck, the window rolled down. "Come on, Daisy!" She shouts."Sorry! Bye!" Daisy yells as she rushes to the car, her little legs pounding pavement."What were you talking about with that boy?" Daisy's mom asks as Daisy climbs in the truck."D-Dinosaurs," Daisy stutters as she sits down in the passenger seat and buckles in.You can't catch what her mom says as she drives off.>You want to talk to your Dad about how cool Daisy is! He can probably give you grown-up advice, too!>You want to talk to your friends about how cool Daisy is! They deserve to know!>You want to keep Daisy all to yourself! She's soooo cute!>Write-in.
>>36081473>>You want to keep Daisy all to yourself! She's soooo cute!
>>36081473>You want to talk to your Dad about how cool Daisy is! He can probably give you grown-up advice, too!
>>36081473>>You want to talk to your Dad about how cool Daisy is! He can probably give you grown-up advice, too!Are her parents religious zealots?
>>36081473>You want to talk to your Dad about how cool Daisy is! He can probably give you grown-up advice, too!yup >>36081524sure looks like it
You sit back down on the bench, excitedly kicking your legs as you wait for your dad to get here. Oh, man, you can't wait to tell him about Daisy! When your dad finally pulls up, you practically jump in the back seat, quickly buckling yourself in."Dad!" You all but should."Yeah, kiddo?" Your father asks, glancing at you in the rear view mirror as he pulls out of the parking lot."I talked to this really cool girl today!"He gives this smile, like he knows something you don't. "Did you, now?""I did," you say, nodding excitedly and choosing to ignore his smugness. "Her name's Daisy, and she knows a lot about God, but she didn't even know who Godzilla is! Can you believe that?""I can, actually," your dad replies, a little laugh in his voice."Anyway! I played with her during recess, and ate lunch with her, AND I talked to her before her mom picked her up!""Well, that's good to hear, son. Sounds like you're making the right moves. What did you say her name was, again?""Daisy," you repeat."Daisy..." your dad mulls over the word. "Daisy Miller?" You nod. Your dad's face twitches for a moment, and he sighs and shakes his head, keeping his attention on the road. "You just be careful, kiddo. I don't want you to go getting yourself hurt.""How could being friends with Daisy get me hurt?"He smiles like he just got a joke you didn't. "Things happen. Maybe things with the girl won't turn out well.""How could they not turn out well?" You demand."Lots of different ways," he says. You keep pestering him for a while before he finally gives in. "It's just..." he sighs. "I know her mother from church. She's a bit..." he pauses, carefully choosing his next word, "intense. She might not like you being friends with Daisy. She might forbid Daisy from being your friend.">Why wouldn't she like you being friends with Daisy?>She can't forbid that! Daisy gets to pick her own friends!>You're crushed. What if your dad is right?>Write-in.
We should get one of our books of dinosaurs and show Daisy, maybe bring a Godzilla action figure to show her what we were talking about

>>36081942Make sure to bookmark the page about T-Rexes
"Why wouldn't she like me being friends with Daisy? I'd be a great friend!""Well, Ms. Miller is a rather... traditional woman," your dad explains. "She might not like her daughter being friends with a boy.""Why?" You laugh. "Is she afraid Daisy will get cooties?"Your dad laughs, and you laugh too. "Something like that," Dad replies."But you said cooties aren't real!""Well, it's not quite cooties that she's worried about.""You're not even telling me what the problem is!" You pout and cross your arms, giving your dad a very irritable look, and he just smiles and shakes his head at you in the rear view mirror. "Take me seriously!" You yell, kicking your legs angrily.Unfortunately, it turns out your dad is a traitor: he doesn't help you at all! Well, whatever, you'll just get ready to be the best friend Daisy could possibly want! Then her mom will have to let you be her friend! You grab a bunch of books about dinosaurs, AND your Godzilla action figure, nodding to yourself that this will definitely make her your friend. How could anybody hate Godzilla? Her mom will be happy that you've taught Daisy all about dinosaurs and Godzilla.The next day, you see Daisy in the halls, talking to a group of other girls that surrounds her as she stands with her back to the wall. Ha! See, she is cool! She's already got some friends! You knew she had it in her!"Firebug / butt plug / Daisy's crazy / and so lazy."Wait a second... those lyrics... they aren't nice at all! Those aren't Daisy's friends at all!>Jump in and protect Daisy! You can't let people be mean to Daisy! She doesn't deserve that!>Observe from a distance.

You walk towards the girls, who continue to insult Daisy and antagonize her, getting in her personal space, while she just curls up into herself, back to the wall.You strut as you near, attempting to look as cool as possible, before laying down some rhymes on these bullies. "Stupid girls / it's such a pity / you're just mad / 'cause Daisy's pretty."The girls turn to look at you, expressions of disbelief on their faces as they do. "Go away, dork," one of them - Tammy, you think - says, puffing up threateningly. "Nobody wants you here.""Nuh uh! I bet Daisy wants me here, right Daisy?" You turn your eyes towards Daisy.Daisy's eyes just get bigger and she draws in on herself even more when she meets your gaze, her lower lip quivering nervously."See?" Tammy asks. "Even Daisy doesn't want you around, so bug off."Just then, the hem of her skirt catches fire, and she starts to jump around, yelling, frantically trying to put it out. One of the other girls splashes water out of a bottle on her skirt, putting the fire out, but leaving her lower half soaking wetThe girls turn their attention back to Daisy, menace clear in their movements, and you push in, grabbing Tammy and pulling her back."You saw it!" Tammy yells. "She set me on fire!" Daisy shakes her head, quivering in fear. "Come on, don't even try to deny it! Who else would do it?" Daisy just shrugs before curling in on herself further. "Little twerp!" She struggles against your hold, but you're big for your age, so it doesn't help.The bell rings, and the girls head off to their classes; you wind up letting Tammy go, since you don't want to have to explain yourself to a teacher."Th-thank you," Daisy mumbles, staring at her feet, clutching her books tightly to her chest.>Ask if she really set that girl's skirt on fire.>Ask if she wants to hang out for recess and lunch again!>Tell her that it was no problem, you're just doing your duty to help a girl in trouble!>Write-in.

>>36083076>Ask if she wants to hang out for recess and lunch again!Its obvious she set the girls skirt on fire with her mind, but the other girl started it and its not like pyrokinesis means she's a bad friend.
>>36083168Dude, we're 6-12 years old. How is pyrokinesis the FIRST explanation that comes to your mind?
>>36083185Did you not play superpowers in school when you were small?
>>36083274Pyrohokinesis would be only for that hyper smart nerdy kid, everyone would just call them fire powers.
>>36083274This -> >>36083313When I was 6-12, Pyro was one of my least favorite X-Men; as a kid, the only powers worth having, in my opinion, were wolverine's healing and Colossus' super strength/invulnerability.
>>36083366See as a kid i preferred cyclop's eyebeams, never got hurt and blasted the crap out of the badguys, was pissed when they nerfed him.

>>36083405Have you read the latest Cyclops Comic? I did and I was NOT prepared for the feels. It's surprisingly about a time-traveling, younger Scott Summers reuniting with his estranged father after years apart. I recommend it. >>36083445I agree that my younger self underestimated Pyro, but he really isn't all that great. Comparatively speaking, his power is just too limited to be all that interesting.But I do agree with you that Nightcrawler is the shit.
>>36083543Also his dad is a fucking space pirate.
"No problem," you say shrugging it off with an affected cool. "Uh, so do you want to hang out for recess and lunch again?""D-do you want to?" Daisy pulls her books up so they hide the lower half of her face again. She is so cute when she does that!"Yeah!" You puff up your chest. "I mean, if you want to," you say, deflating at her torn expression."U-um... okay..." she says at last, before scurrying away to her next class. You hope you didn't scare her or anything!When recess finally comes, you immediately seek out Daisy like a... a velociraptor seeking prey! You even brought one of your dinosaur books to show her! She's going to think you're so cool!She's kicking her legs on the swing, staring at the pebbles again. When you approach, she looks up, and her expression brightens a little before falling again.You're not sure what the problem is... fortunately, you've got the perfect icebreaker! You show her the book. "Check it out! It's got pictures of SIXTEEN different dinosaurs in here. Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Ankylosaurus-""M-my mom says that dinosaurs are a lie put here by Satan to deceive good Christians into falling away from God."You blink. "But- dinosaurs are cool," you say."In Genesis, it tells how God made the world in seven days, and it never mentions dinosaurs," Daisy explains, kicking her legs awkwardly above the pebbles.Your shoulders slump. "Not even once?" She shakes her head.>Dinosaurs... not real... your world is shattered.>That's... that's bupkis! They probably just forgot to mention them!>No! Dinosaurs are real! You don't care what her mother says! They totally are real! If they're not real, explain Godzilla!>Write-in.

>>36083731>That's... that's bupkis! They probably just forgot to mention them!WAy i see it the bible is for and about people and God, it'd just skip the dinosaurs since they aren't people
>>36083731>No! Dinosaurs are real! You don't care what her mother says! They totally are real! If they're not real, explain Godzilla!
>>36083731>Well, I don't know, maybe you're right, but I don't want to write off dinosaurs just yet,
>>36083731>Write-in"They don't talk about Sea Urchins or Walruses either! But they exist!" *Pout* They just....they must have forgotten...or something...." *Huff*
>>36083731>You won't find Tyrannosaurus Rex or the term "dinosaur" anywhere in the Bible. Yet, Scripture does use the Hebrew word tanniyn to describe a mysterious creature resembling a giant reptile. This being appears 28 times in the Old Testament, with English translations referring to it most often as a dragon, but also as a sea-monster, serpent and whale.Dinosaurs confirmed for biblical, blow her out with our theological knowhow

It's not true! It's impossible! "They do so exist! The Bible authors probably just forgot to mention them!"Daisy curls up a little, obviously not prepared for an argument."They - they didn't mention walruses, I bet! But those are real! Or, like, sea urchins!""M-my mom says...""I don't care what your mom says! Dinosaurs are real!"Daisy pulls her legs up onto the swing seat, wrapping her hands tight around the chains holding it in place. She stares at the ground, her black hair completely obscuring her face. "M-my mom says I shouldn't be friends with you..." she mumbles out.Those words take the wind out of you. "What? Why?""B-because you're a boy, and I'm not allowed to talk to boys until after I'm married. A-and because you're trying to tempt me into unbelief with the Darwinist lie of dinosaurs. And because you told me about Godzilla, who is a monster devised by the Godless Japanese and used, like all mainstream television and movies, to degrade the faith of good Christians. Um. And probably some other things I forgot.">Ask if that means Daisy doesn't like you.>Tell her the two of you can just keep it a secret! How will her mom find out if she doesn't tell her?>Throw a tantrum.>Write-in.
>>36084234I am fine with this. I'm just saying, a daunting intelligence and an almost autistic obsession with dinosaurs are cool ones if you ask me.

>>36084795>yfw thats the plot twist
You bring up your hands, trying to calm Daisy down. "Okay, I just won't talk about dinosaurs. Or Godzilla. Or, um, what was the other thing?""Mainstream television and movies," Daisy repeats."What's that mean?""Like... um... cable, and TV, and stuff like that.""Then I won't talk about TV either," you conclude. "But I don't think I can stop being a boy...""M-maybe you could apologize to my mom for saying those things? I-if you didn't know they were wrong, then m-maybe she'll forgive you and let us be friends, even though you're a boy...""I guess..." you mumble, making it obvious you're not pleased with the prospect. "Since you still want to be my friend, does that mean you like me?"You catch the sudden pink coloration of Daisy's cheeks in the gaps between her hair. "Y-yeah," she murmurs. "I like you."When she says that, your stomach suddenly fills up with sparkly butterflies. At least, that's what it feels like."Sorry about my mom, but, you know, Colossians 3:20...""Colossians 3:20?" You don't remember like, any Bible verses, except John 3:14. Or was it 3:16? Anyway the really famous one."Colossians 3:20 says, "Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord." My mom made me memorize it.""I-is that really in the Bible?" You laugh nervously. Daisy just looks at you through her black hair, head still bowed."It's really in the Bible," she confirms. Her legs kick at the pebbles beneath her.>You can convince her mom to let you be her friend! She needs a friend, after all!>Tell her that you can lie to her mom, so that the two of you can still be friends!>Tell her that her mom sounds crazy!>Write-in.

We can be her sidekick!
>>36085056Since she's basically the mom from Carrie, yeah.
>>36084903>Tell her that her mom sounds crazy!

>>36085147Emperor told me not to hang out with psykers.
Nothing more fun than bible lessons...
>>36085095She's actually more patterned on the milieu I grew up in.
>>36085198Nah. She can set stuff on fire with her mind, we can speak or read any language, including the animal and computer ones. Superpowers are kind of random like that.
>>36085265So we're going to be superheroes then? This is going to be fun.
>>36085260You have my condolences. Unless you set them on fire before leaving, in which case you have my approval.

>>36085453If you're not American, then my apologies. If you are, then color me surprised, because that’s definitely the dominant strain of Christian fundamentalism here. I didn't think there was another type that meshed with the "mom from Carrie" setup in this quest.
"I've got an idea!" You practically jump up and down in glee. "Your mom could teach me about the Bible! Then we could be friends, and you wouldn't have to worry about me, um, tempting you away from God, and it would make a good impression on your mom!"Daisy fiddles with her fingers, looking up at you hopefully. "M-maybe that would work," she says. "Y-yeah! My mom could teach you the Bible! O-or you could go to the pastor! My mom talks to him all the time, and she says he's really holy! He'd probably teach you if my mom won't!" Daisy jumps off the swing, running up to you and hugging you tightly. The act surprises you, but not in a bad way. The warmth of her arms wrapped around you, her head hooked over your shoulder, the feel of her body pressed up against yours... it makes your heart do somersaults in your chest for reasons you don't quite understand.After a second or two, though, Daisy pulls away from you suddenly. Her cheeks are burning a brilliant red, and she quickly shuffles backwards away from you, head bowed, before sitting back on the swing, her shoulders pulled up near her chin as she pulls her legs up onto the swing's seat. "U-um, anyway," she mumbles, awkwardly.Recess ends shortly thereafter.>Eat lunch with her again, talk about... [Write-in]>Bring her to your table and introduce her to your friends.

"Daisy," you say, pinching at her dress to stop her from running off. She turns around to look at you. "Um, could you teach me some, about, like, God? So I don't make your mom too angry by asking dumb questions, or anything."Daisy nods, and the two of you sit down to eat lunch together, praying before you start.Daisy lectures you on the Bible, and teaches you a couple Bible verses she's memorized. She talks about how the sinful world tries to tempt Christians away from God by all kinds of things, like lying about how old the world is (6,000 years not 4 billion), about how the fossils got where they were (satanic deception and/or the Flood), the literal truth of every single event recorded in the Bible (there's this thing called apologetics, and it's all about how the Bible is literally 100% true, apparently), and all kinds of things.Your dad never taught you about this! You had no idea that the Bible was so... perfect! The whole idea of "biblical inerrancy" is mind-blowing to you. You just assumed that, like, the Bible was some people writing about God, and sometimes they got it wrong because they were people, but apparently their hands were guided by God so that they never wrote a single false thing!Thank God that Daisy was here to tell you all that! You definitely have to read the Bible really hard now!>Go bother Ms. Miller when she shows up, and tell her you want to learn all about Jesus and the Bible and stuff!>Tell your dad you want to learn about it, and see if he can help you out!>Let Daisy tell her mom.

>>36086210Dear god. We've just indoctrinated our MC into a fundamentalist cult. Anyone have a game plan, or are we just rolling with this?
>>36086246Seconding this. We should see if Dad has any ideas about what we can talk to Daisy about other than Bible stuff, since we can't talk about most media and stuff.
>>36086316Our plan is to marry Daisy.
>>36086210>>36086316>Tell your dad you want to learn about it, and see if he can help you out!Our dad is the only person I trust not to fuck us up.
>>36086210>Tell your dad you want to learn about it, and see if he can help you out!>>36086341Seems like a plan.
>>36086316It is called Christianity, and it has not been a cult in over millennium.
>>36086354i tip my fedora to you kind qm
>>36086354Seeing as her brand seems to be highly controlling and extremely intolerant, I'm willing to say its a cult.
Are we all ignoring the fact that daisy is a straight up witch or did I misread?
>>36086341Also tell Dad that Daisy can make fire, and see if we've got any superpowers.

My mother wound up quitting her job teaching there because they started requiring you to sign some garbage that said you didn't believe in evolution.
>>36086413All we know is that Daisy may have made a girl's skirt catch fire. Best/worst case scenario, she IS a witch, she introduces us to Satan, and we ask him to let us Godzilla.

>>36086445Back in 5th grade, my guidance counselor was hardcore fundamentalist, and I got in shit cause me and some friends were playing pokemon at recess. Cue filling every damn desk in the school with trading cards.
>>36086499>>36086445Maybe it's just because I went to a Catholic school, instead of some filthy Baptist heretic school, but the worst I got was a beating from the nuns a few times. It was actually a pretty moderate place otherwise.

>>36086499Pokémon owns and I'm glad my parents let me play it, even though it misrepresents evolution and involves Shintoist "kami."
>>36086538I was in a public school in New York. It was bizarre, especially since the day before, the math teacher (who had a thing for science) randomly hijacked the cafeteria during lunch and taught us all about visible light.

>>36086803This is an OC quest.
You tell Daisy that she should be the one to tell her mom about how you want to learn about the Bible. After all, she knows her mom better, and would know how to phrase the question. You, on the other hand, are going to talk to your father...You avoid sitting next to Daisy while waiting for your dad to pick you up. You don't want her to get in trouble with her mom, after all! She sits alone, quietly studying her Bible, her eyes occasionally flicking up to you, then back down to the book.Dad gets here before Ms. Miller, so you wave a cheery goodbye to Daisy before hopping in the back seat and sitting down."Hey, Dad?" You ask, kicking your legs in your seat."Yeah, kiddo?""Um, I wanna learn about the Bible. Like, Daisy was talking about it, and she knows a whole lot, but I don't know ANYTHING. And her mom doesn't like me, apparently, because I'm not a good enough Christian or something."Your dad sighs, taking a long while before speaking. "Ms. Miller is entitled to her religious views," he says, at last. "I don't agree with all of them, but one of us will be vindicated by God, and I'll accept that, whichever way it goes.""Um, okay, but what about what I was asking? Like, Bible study? I want to make a good impression. Could you help teach me?""Sure, son," your father says. "But I don't think that Ms. Miller will be that happy with what I'll teach you.""Why not? I mean, it's the same book, and God wrote it, so it should be fine, right?"Your father spends most of the trip home explaining to you the (numerous) problems of the doctrine of Biblical inerrancy. You wanted to make a good impression on Daisy's mom! This won't help with that at all! In fact, it'll do the opposite!>Whatever. Just pretend that your Dad didn't actually teach you anything. Act like the Bible is completely perfect no matter what.>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it?>Write-in.
>>36086886>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it?
>>36086886>Write-in."This is a good way for us to use our knowledge, we can find out the popular ways of how christians deny this, so we can pretend that we've seen people debating this matter before!"
>>36086886>>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it?>But we don't want to make Daisy's mom mad so we should avoid mentioning it in front of her and ask Daisy not to mention it!
>>36086886>>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it?We must begin our subtle trolling career.
>>36086886>>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it? If not, that's cool too, you won't push her.
>>36086886>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it?I mean we kinda have to if we don't want to be crazy.
>This is really cool! It's way more complex than that whole Biblical inerrancy deal. You wonder if Daisy would like to hear about it?
>>36086926Changing from >>36086940to this.
>>36086886>Write-in.Think about this stuff, perhaps write a little bit of it down; the more interesting bits anyways. A large part of being a good christian is not doing things you can't put your faith in and it doesn't seem like we can wholeheartedly put our faith in Ms. Miller's rendition of the bible. The only moral thing to do is to be honest about our feelings and thoughts and deal with the consequences as they come >WWMCD (What Would Michael Carpenter Do?)
>>36086920No. I don't even get what you're talking about, but it definitely doesn't seem like something an 11 year old would do.

You see Daisy at recess again, and she's looking kind of guilty, sitting off on her lonesome in a corner, throwing stones at the wall. She doesn't run off when you approach, though, so you decide to try to talk to her."Hi, Daisy," you say, waving your hand in greeting. She turns to you, then immediately turns away. "What's the matter?""I didn't ask my mom..." she mumbles, throwing another rock at the wall. "Sorry. I was scared that she'd say no.""Oh..." you say, sitting down next to her. "Is it okay if I sit here?""Sure," Daisy says, wiping at her eyes with one of her hands and sniffling. "I'm a bad girl anyway. I disobeyed my mom, now I'm going to hell. It's not like it matters if you sit next to me."Hey, maybe this would be a good opportunity to mention that thing! "Daisy, I was talking to my dad, about what you were talking about, earlier? The Biblical inerrancy thing?" She nods, not looking at you. "Well, he was talking about it, and he was saying..." you start to talk about the idea that the Bible was put together by human beings, who inserted their own particular viewpoints and values at times, and that people have to look at what context the Bible was written in and who was writing it and what they were writing it for, before assuming that any given word the genuine intent of God, rather than the mortal author inserting their own values, intentionally or unintentionally."S-so," Daisy sniffles, "maybe the whole, obey your parents thing, was just somebody's own dumb idea they stuck in there without God's permission?">Yes, that's exactly it. Daisy should be more careful with the Bible, and use her judgement.>Well... maybe. You don't really know. You're just a kid.>That's probably what God really thinks, and Daisy should definitely talk to her mom.>Write-in.
>>36087530Well... maybe. You don't really know, but God gave Daisy a brain so she should use it.
>>36087530>Well... maybe. You don't really know. You're just a kid.
>>36087530>Well... maybe. Daisy should read it how she wants to.
>>36087560>God gave Daisy a brain so she should use it.This
>>36087530>Yes, that's exactly it. Daisy should be more careful with the Bible, and use her judgement.
>>36086445she could have truthfully said she doesn't believe in it but rather accepts it as the best theory(hypothesis supported by a body of facts) that fits the available evidence.
>>36087667No she couldn't have.It was more the "agree or be banished" thing that bugged her, anyways.
>>36087530>>Well... maybe. You don't really know. You're just a kid.
>>36087560This. Admittedly, he may have intended her to use it to set things on fire, but Jewish God is better anyway. For one thing, he's actually cool with you arguing with him.
>>36087845Jewish God is a huge faggot about arguing with him, have you read Job? Everything he says is just "shut up, bitch, I'm God, I do what I like."
>>36087845>Admittedly, he may have intended her to use it to set things on firewe should try to get a fire extinguisher if we can.
>>36087880Eh, that one was more about stress-testing his creation. It’s why he had the Satan with him in the first place, to point out things that might not be working as intended.
>>36087880Hey God, that guy only loves you because you don't fuck him over>Nuh-uh!Yeah-huh!>You'll see, I'll fuck him over so hard and he won't give a fuck.Heh.LaterWHHHYYYYYY???>because fuck you, I do as I please.
>>36087845nigga jewish god is basically the god everyone hates. Everything new testaments is christian, older is mostly hebrew shit my man
"Exactly! It's a book! You have to be careful not to take it literally all the time! And that whole thing about obeying your parents - probably it didn't mean everybody! I mean, there are bad parents, right? So obviously some parents shouldn't be obeyed."Daisy nods along, apparently accepting your logic. "Y-yeah. That's it... it's advice, not rules!" Daisy jumps to her feet, doing a giddy little bouncing dance, apparently ecstatic at this revelation. You follow her up, standing next to her. "Thanks so much!" She hugs you again, and all the butterflies in your stomach simultaneously explode into a warm, fuzzy feeling that tingles all the way through your chest. Her face presses into your chest, and you feel the wet spots where tears are going through your shirt.You're a little confused by her giddiness. "You're welcome?" You softly pat her on the back.She pulls away, a manic grin on her face, then she looks at the spot where her tears/snot stained your shirt. "Oh no, I'm sorry," she looks up at you, blushing, and she starts to wipe at them with her thumb, which seems unusually warm to the touch.Then your shirt catches fire where she's rubbing.Unlike Tammy, you have the good sense to stop, drop and roll. Dad didn't raise a kid who was going to burn to death! That's what he always says, anyway. Well, said a couple times when he was teaching you fire safety. Anyway, the point is, you put yourself out without much trouble, though the fire makes this ugly black and crusty spot on your shirt.When you stand up and start brushing yourself off, Daisy is standing a couple feet away, her fist in front of her mouth, eyes big, her long black hair falling around her face again as she stares at you, a nervous smile in her lips.>END OF CHAPTER 1Twitter: https://twitter.com/72oOCCJ1Cutting it here because it seems like a good place to.Hopefully will run again tomorrow, about the same time.
>>36088043"I thought you were hot Daisy, but not THAT hot!"
>>36087992Christian God is the one who condemns everyone who doesn't believe in one highly specific version of himself to eternal torment, including everyone who existed before Christianity did. He's also the one who doesn't care how much of a shit you are in life; as long as you really really believe the right things, you get to spend eternity at his side. And he's the one who has ritual cannibalism as a central part of his worship. He's an enormous creepy douchebag.
>>36088082Play with fire and you're gonna get burned
>>36088043So you do have fire powers! Cool!So is the entire quest going to take place in this timeframe or be as they grow up?
>>36088043>Dad didn't raise a kid who was going to burn to death!Why is our dad so cool?
>>36088043This is way cuter then I thought when you pitched it. Thanks for the thread OP.
>>36088043My inner 11-year old is telling me that a friend with fire superpowers is the best thing ever. Especially when she's also a pretty girl, although he's not sure why he thinks that.
>>36088117Probably pretty much this timeframe, plus a big timeskip at the end for an epilogue.Incidentally, what age do you guys read the MC/Daisy at? I never can remember how old little kids are, and if I want an [x years later] epilogue I need to know.>>36088107Salvation through faith/grace alone is an interpretation, made fairly early in the Church's history, but an interpretation nonetheless. The New Testament itself is actually pretty contradictory on the subject.
>>36088207>Incidentally, what age do you guys read the MC/Daisy at?Like 4-7
>>36088207Elementary schoolers. Probably 4th grade.
>>36088223Yeah, I remember being significantly more mature at age 11. I didn't exactly have a fun childhood, and my parents talked to me like a grown man.I think people act how society reinforces them to act.
>>3608820711 or 12.
>>36087530"Well, sure, sometimes parents are wrong, right? If your mom disagrees with my dad, we can't both obey them and be right! Right?"
>>36088207Well, they are really easy to influence and carefree, but they have gotten to the age where they start being interested in the opposite sex and don't care about cooties anymore.So yeah, 4th or 5th grade. 10-11 years old.>>36088282But our character isn't the serious / moody kid that got picked on at school and spent his days at home reading fantasy books and playing videogames. He has lots of friends and is happy, carefree and very self-confident.I wasn't like this at all, but many other kids were.
