It was evening, the sun was just starting to dip below the horizon, and you were currently walking Lisa home. Rather, you were walking Lisa home, until the two of you stopped to have a conversation about what she and Jean were talking about earlier. It seems that Lisa shared some details about the stuff you did on the trip, and you were rather curious as to why Jean’s reaction was what it was."W-well," Lisa stammers, "I may have mentioned the necklace you got for me, and maybe that time--never mind, that's not important."You wonder why Jean would make a big deal over the necklace you got for Lisa. You found a jeweler in town and got a piece of sunstone fitted into a necklace. Why would Jean care so much about that? Unless…You feel like there’s something Lisa isn't telling you, and you think you know what it is. The only question that remains in your mind is what to say next…>Write-in (specify)
>>36533312invite her for a sleepover? it'll probably be easier to talk about it in these conditions
>>36533312Something about the necklace and my not noticing. What is it?
>>36533312"Lisa, do you like me?"
"Lisa, do you like me?" you ask plainly.Lisa's face slowly turns a deep shade of crimson. Her attempts at speech are a fix of muttering and stammering, as she struggles to form a coherent sentence."H-h-ow long have you known?" she finally pieces out, averting her gaze downward as she speaks."I figured it out just now," you reply, "Though I there were a few moments before that where I had my suspicions."She lets out a long sigh as she attempts to regain her composure. You give her a minute, but she doesn't seem to be calming down very much."S-s-so," she continues, "Do you, like me?">Write-in (specify)
>>36533866Well yes. of course I like you. I wouldn't have gotten you that necklace or offered to buy your a pet otherwise.
>>36533866just french kiss her, best way to answer
>>36533866"Lisa, what kind of question is that. Who was the one person I trusted enough to watch my back on my journey? Who did I dig through a mountain to find a gem for a necklace?"kiss her"Of course I like you Lisa, honestly I though you saw me as an older brother for a while"
Well, time for the direct approach. You move in closer and wrap an arm around Lisa moving your face towards hers."C-C-Ceil!" she exclaims, "What are-"She doesn't get the chance to finish asking before your lips meet hers. She closes her eyes and returns the gesture. The moment seems to stretch on forever, though eventually, you find yourself wanting for air, and you break off, still holding her in your arms."Of course I like you Lisa, what kind of question is that?" you smile, "You were the one person I trusted enough to watch my back on my journey. I mean, I wouldn't have dug through a mountain to find a gem for a necklace otherwise. Honestly I though you saw me as an older brother for a while"She leans her head against your chest as she begins giggling."I thought you were just being clueless about it," she laughs, "With all the doting you did I thought you just saw me as your little sister or something."The two of you share a laugh as you continue holding each-other closely. After what seems like an eternity, Lisa glances back up at you with her bright blue eyes."I'm so happy, Ceil," she says, "But I'm not really sure where we go from here."That was a pretty good question.>Continue to her house, explain the situation to her parents>Continue to her house, ask her family over to your house for dinner, make the announcement there>Pass by your house on the way back to hers to explain to your parents>Other (specify)

>>36534529this or>Continue to her house, ask her family over to your house for dinner, make the announcement there
"I guess we should go tell our parents," you start, "Mind if we go by mine first, since it's on the way?"Sounds good," she says, placing her arm around yours as the two of you begin walking.The going is a bit slower than it would usually be, with Lisa holding onto you tightly as you walk, not that you're complaining. By the time you reach your house, the sun has finally set beneath the horizon. Heading up to the front door, you give a cursory knock before entering. You search around the house until you find your parents, and then you begin to explain the situation.They're rather surprised at first to see Lisa on your arm, though as you explain the situation and what happened while you were on the sidewalk (leaving out some of the more physical details), they seem to form a look of understanding. Your father is grinning with silent approval, while your mother is positively ecstatic about the entire situation. Once you finish speaking, she stands up and clasps Lisa's hands in her own, bombarding her with questions and advice about your relationship.Your father stands up and walks over to you, clasping a hand on your shoulder. "I think we were all sort of expecting it," he begins, "Though recently I'd begun to worry if the two of you weren't as close as I thought. Glad to see you proved me wrong Ceil. I'm sure I can trust you not to do anything untoward?""Of course," you reply."Good to hear it," he nods, "Have you spoken with Lisa's parents about this yet?""We were going to head over there right after we told you.""Well, best not keep them waiting then," your father grins, "Amanda, they need to get going now."Your mother looks like she's about to protest, though then raises her hands in mock surrender. Lisa seems relieved to be free from the flurry of questions, and after bidding your parents farewell, the two of you head off towards your next destination.(cont)
It's rather late by the time you finally reach Lisa's house. You're almost certain they would have finished eating dinner by now. You knock on the door, and Lisa's mother opens it to find the two of you holding hands."Pierce!" she calls as she leads you inside, "Look who I found!"Lisa's father enters the room, and you watch as he glances at the two of you and does a double take. He furrows his brow as he marches over to you and glares directly into your eyes."Ceil, is this your way of telling me you're in a relationship with my daughter?""Well, I--""And you know that I want you to treat her right in every possible way?" he continues."Of course," you stammer, caught off guard by his stern demeanor."I'm sure I don't need to tell you that if I ever find out that you've hurt her in any way-""I wouldn't dream of it sir!" you interrupt, regretting doing so as he stares at you intensely for a moment more before finally breaking off and laughing heartily."Sorry for doing that to you Ceil," he chuckles, "I've known you forever after all. I was just worried I'd never have a chance to terrify a boy Lisa brought home with her.""Dad, stop," Lisa says, "You're being embarrassing again.""Sorry dear," he grins sheepishly, "It's just good to see that the two of you are together. You're a fine young man Ceil, and I'm not surprised Lisa chose you."Lisa's parents begin pressing her for details almost as heavily as your mother did earlier. Once they start asking more embarrassing questions, Lisa takes the opportunity to wish you good night, and you take that as your cue to leave.Once outside, you continue along your way back to your house, ready to get a full night's sleep. You head upstairs to your room and collapse into your bed, and you drift off to sleep with a smile.>Roll 1d20
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>36535198uh oh
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>36535198oh boy what could that be...
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>36535198
You glance out your window to see it's still dark outside, which is odd, since usually you don't wake up in the middle of the night. That's when you feel a sudden weight on top of you, and you look up to see Lisa sitting on top of you. You also note that not wearing her usual clothes, or much at all really. It's only then you realize the situation you've found yourself in."Ceil," she whispers in a sweet tone, "I was really happy when you said that you liked me earlier. I wanted to take the chance to return the favor."As she speaks she slowly moves the covers aside, and places her legs so she's directly straddling your bare torso."All that time and you never said anything," she continues, "Well, I'm going to make certain that you don't think of me as a little sister now."Panicked thoughts race through your mind. What would happen if your parents woke up? Was Lisa always like this? How long did she have that outfit for? Should you just accept this? She was acting really weird.Speaking of weird, how did Lisa even get into your room? Your window was on the second floor, and the doors to the house were locked. If she entered your room normally, how did she avoid waking up your monsters? You glance down at the floor, only to see that Riolu, Froakie, and Bagon were nowhere to be found, nor were the pillows they slept on."Ceil?" she asks, running her hands across your chest, "Is something wrong?"You try and formulate a response, but her hands are distracting you from saying much of anything. If only you were wearing your shirt then maybe you could think more clearly.Wait a second, you always slept in your shirt. You even remembered having it on before Lisa appeared in your bed. Wait, she appeared? What was going on?(cont)
>>36535576damn, maybe that gardevoir really did want ciel to stay
Then it all clicks in your mind, this is clearly--------------You blink your eyes open to the bright light shining through your window. You sit up in bed, and indeed you are wearing your shirt. It seems like that was a dream after all, though a rather vivid one.You get out of bed and get dressed, trying to shake the pictures from your mind. The last thing you needed today was to be distracted. After all, tonight was the night you were going to attack the blockade. After heading downstairs and eating breakfast, you contemplate how to spend your day.>Go see your father about finalizing the plan and any last minute preparations>Go out in town and buy any final supplies you might want (specify)>Go over to Lisa's and she if she wants to spend some more time together today>Other (specify)
>>36535630>Go see your father about finalizing the plan and any last minute preparationsyeah, it's not really a good time to be all lovely-dovey
>>36535630>>Go see your father about finalizing the plan and any last minute preparations>>Other (specify)i know its last minute, but any chance of maybe finding a water pokemon before we go pirate hunting
>>36535716meant something bigger, like something we could ride when we abandon ship and the water is full of enemy 'mons
You decide to go see your father. You needed to be as prepared as possible for tonight, and there were still some things you needed to decide.Once you get to his office, the two of you go over the basics of the plan once again. You'll sneak onto the ships and set them on fire using timed candles so the action is near simultaneous. Then, the lightning monsters stationed near the edge of the bay will start shocking the aquatic monsters of the blockade. This will all serve as a diversion and support for the main force, which consists of many able-bodied guards and sailors, who will sail directly to the blockade ships and take them out.Adding onto this was your idea to construct some siege weaponry to aid in the attack. They only managed to rig together four in the short time span, though the plan is to shoot the ships on either side, away from the edge. That will help distract them further and prevent them from lending support to the center ships where the main battle will be occurring, or the sides where the lightning monsters will be.The biggest things you still need to figure out are how you want to allocate your own monsters, and your strategy after you set all the candles.The first one is easier to tackle. Obviously, you planned on bringing your ghost sword to teleport. Other than that, you really only had enough room for one of your other monsters. You could potentially get extra pouches to bring all of them, but you're not sure if that's wise. You would also need to decide where to assign those you weren't bringing along.>Specify who you wish to bring with you (Riolu, Froakie, Bagon)>For any left behind, specify where to position them (with the Lightning monsters, with the siege weapons, with the main attack force)>Write-in if you have another suggestion or anything else to add
>>36535905>>Specify who you wish to bring with you (Riolu, Froakie, Bagon)>>For any left behind, specify where to position them (with the Lightning monsters, with the siege weapons, with the main attack force)>>Write-in if you have another suggestion or anything else to add>Riolu- stay with the lightning mons and guard them if any arrows or water pokemon go after them>Froakie- with us>Bagon- work with Lisa's Pigiotto or another flyer for bombarding attacks (ie. pick up bagon, drop on ship, repeat)
>>36535905>Riolu- stay with the lightning mons and guard them if any arrows or water pokemon go after them>Froakie- with us>Bagon- work with Lisa's Pigiotto or another flyer for bombarding attacks (ie. pick up bagon, drop on ship, repeat)Looks good to me. I'll second.
>>36535905agreeing with the other two as i can't really think of anything better
>>36535990>>36536019sounds good, but can Bagon swim? if not might wanna get him a floaty if he's on ship break duty
You resolve to take Froakie with you. He was the most suited to stealth overall, and was also well adapted to aquatic environments.Riolu will be with the lightning monsters on the east shore. Riolu's aura vision would allow him to keep tabs on your movements while you were away, and his healing abilities would let him help support and protect that flank.You consider how to handle Bagon. You could have him join with the main attack but you're not sure if that would be the best use of his talents. Then you remember how easily he was crushing rocks in the desert by diving into them, and you formulate a plan. You'll need to ask for Lisa's help, but you think that Pidgeotto could drop Bagon onto the ships from above. You'll set them up near the siege weapons, due to the similar role, but hopefully Bagon will be able to do at least a bit of damage to the ships. Maybe he'll even get lucky and hit a mast.With that resolved, the last thing to decide was where you wanted to head after the candles went off. By the plans, you'll be starting off on the ship closest to either the east or the west shore, meaning the last candle you set will put you either on the ship closest to Riolu, or closest to the other lightning monster group. From there, you could either head off shore and support from there, stay on the ship and continue your sabotage, or head back for the center of the formation to help out in the main battle.First, you needed to pick a shore to start from>Start from the west shore (ends near Riolu)>Start from the east shore (ends near the other group)Then, you needed to figure out what to do afterwards>Head offshore and support the lightning monsters there>Take out as many soldiers as you can on the last ship>Rush back to the center of the formation to help>Other (specify)
>>36536273>Start from the west shore (ends near Riolu)We may need the healing.>Take out as many soldiers as you can on the last ship
>>36536273>>Start from the west shore (ends near Riolu)>>Take out as many soldiers as you can on the last shipif we can clear a ship we'll have a solid foothold to the others
>>36536273>Start from the west shore (ends near Riolu) >Take out as many soldiers as you can on the last ship mhmm
After approaching from the west, you'll be in a good position to support Riolu if he needs help, or to receive healing from him if needed. Then, you can try and take out as many soldiers on that ship as possible, maybe even pushing through to the next if you get the chance.With the plans finalized, there was only one thing left to do. Since you decided that Bagon was going to be dropping from above, you needed to talk to Lisa about borrowing her Pidgeotto.It's still early in the morning when you depart for Lisa's house. You arrive soon afterwards, and knock on the door."Oh, Ceil!" Lisa's mom says as she opens the door, "I'm guessing you're here to see Lisa? She's still upstairs sleeping. I guess we spent to long asking her questions last night. Would you mind waking her up for me?""No problem," you reply, heading upstairs to Lisa's room. You knock on her door and call her name, but you don't get any response. You tentatively push open the door and peer into the room. You spot a handful of different bows hanging on racks on a wall nearby, as well as Pidgeotto roosting on a stand in the corner. Sentret seems to be napping on a large pile of pillows. On the far side of the room, you spot Lisa curled up in her bed. She seems to be mumbling something in her sleep.>Try and listen to what she's mumbling (1d20)>Go over and shake her awake>Wake her up in some other way (specify)>Other (specify)

You carefully move across the room, barely making a sound as you approach Lisa's bed. You've never been this good at sneaking before, but it's almost as though your curiosity is making you extremely focused on this goal.Once you arrive at your destination, you lean down to try and listen in. Unfortunately, it seems Lisa's face is currently buried into her pillow, which is making it impossible to decipher her words. Just as you're about to give up, you think you hear your name. You lean even closer to try and make out something else, when suddenly Lisa's sleeping form shifts. Before you can react, you find her arms wrapped around you, holding you next to her in bed. You're lying face to face now, and her blanket seems to have slipped a lot lower. You note that her nightgown is much less revealing than your dream earlier, then quickly focus your thoughts away from that. Instead, you try and Listen to what Lisa's mumbling now that she's facing you."Ceil..." she starts, "Ceil, I love you."A smile spreads on your face. It seems like she is dreaming of you after all."Ceil, more," she continues, "Please, harder..."Your smile slowly turns to horror as you realize just what sort of dream she's having. You try and think of how to handle this, but the noises she keeps making are extremely distracting. >Try and squirm out of her grip and stand (1d20)>Just try and get her to wake up>Wake her up in a different way (specify)>Other (specify)
>>36536919>Wake her up in a different way (specify)whisper in her ear something like "calm down, your parents could hear us"
>>36536919I like it! >>36536986
You keep trying to run through the options in your mind, but Lisa's voice is really distracting. You don't even want to think of what would happen if her parents walked past the room and overheard something, so you decide to lean over to hear ear."Calm down," you whisper, "Your parents could hear us.""But Ceil," she mutters, "It's so..."She trails off, and you notice she wasn't mumbling as loudly. Maybe she heard you after all?"It's so.." she continues, "Big...and deep."You can feel your cheeks getting redder by the second. While she wasn't being as loud anymore, she also seemed to be more coherent in her speech. You're not sure whether this is better or worse than the random mutterings from before.You still needed to wake her up soon though, eventually her mother was going to get suspicious about what was taking you so long, and this would be a very bad position to get stuck in.>Maybe there was still time to get out of her grip (1d20)>Just try and shake her awake>Other (specify)
>>36537208>Just try and shake her awakeLet the awkwardness intensify

>>36537208>Just try and shake her awakereaaaaallly gently
You decide to just shake her awake. You place a hand on her shoulder and start nudging her gently. Soon enough, her eyes blink open and she stares at you groggily."Ceil?" Lisa asks, "How'd you get your clothes on so fast?"She pulls her arms back from their grip around you and starts rubbing her eyes. Blinking them open once more to observe her surroundings. It's only when she starts turning a deep shade of crimson that you know she's figured out what happened.>Wait for her to address the situation>Say something yourself (specify)>Get out of her bed since you're no longer trapped by bind>Other (specify)
>>36537516I went to wake you up and you were muttering in your sleep. Then you grabbed me and uh... I figured the best thing to do was to just wake you up.
"I went to wake you up and you were muttering in your sleep," you begin "Then you grabbed me and uh... I figured the best thing to do was to just wake you up.""S-sorry," she stammers, "I was having a dream and you were there and uh, I didn't say anything embarrassing in my sleep did I?""No, nothing," you reply. You really don't feel like repeating anything she said, and you'd rather not dwell on this awkward situation.After you get out of bed, you leave the room to wait while Lisa changes. You really didn't think Lisa was the type to dream about that sort of thing, but then again, you didn't think you were either. Still, it's strange that you both had the same sort of dream on the same night.You really hope there wasn't something weird going on.------------------And that's where I'm going to call it for tonight. Thanks for playing and participating. I'll be around for a bit longer this time for questions and comments.
>>36537780That was great, lol. Thanks for running! Don't particularly have any questions. How are you doing?
>>36537879I'm doing fine. I'm glad I've been able to find time to run these threads each week. I hope the times are working out well for you guys though.
>>36537900I am happy you've found time, too. Personally I think the time is great. It just now hit 9pm so its perfect no matter how fucked my sleep schedule gets. Also I figured I should mention that the time and effort you put in is really appreciated and I'm really glad you returned.
