You’re sitting in a little café on the corner of the street, drinking occasionally from a cup of coffee. On the other end of the table, Laura brings her mug to her lips, drinking in tiny, barely-visible sips. Her eyes are focused entirely on what she’s doing, staring down into the steaming cocoa with a kind singular attentiveness you rarely see anyone apply to anything, let alone something as simple as a warm drink.You glance outside. There’s a Chinese restaurant on the other end of the street – or, there was, until recently. Now the windows are smashed and the furniture inside lies in scattered ruins. Police have cordoned it off, and there’s a squad car idling nearby. Normally, you’d expect something relatively uncomplicated – a bit of reckless vandalism, maybe – but the damage here looks too extensive for that. You can’t help but wonder what happened. You take a swig, but find yourself sipping at nothing but air. You downed that pretty quick. Glancing at the time, you guess you should get going soon. There was something you wanted to ask before you left, though.>Present Time: 12:45 AM>Hunger Level: 3>Current Funds: $608>[ ] What does Laura think of the Facility being at Creeper’s warehouse?>[ ] What does Laura think of the situation in the Scar?>[ ] What’s Laura’s birthday?>[ ] Write in.

>>36625583>[ ] What does Laura think of the Facility being at Creeper’s warehouse?>[ ] What does Laura think of the situation in the Scar?>[ ] What’s Laura’s birthday?>[ ] Want to train later?
I'm the guy that asked about Laura's birthday on ask.fm I was totally going to make that a write-in when this quest started. But Crusty had to go and read my mind.
>>36625854we already have super senses for that
>>36625872Just not that funny.
Kind of hoping it turns out that Laura can sing well, because I have this image of her in a gown singing while JJ plays the piano.I also expect the other Tunnel Snakes to nudge the two of them into a relationship if they both keep shying away from making the first move. Possibly a literal nudge (well, more of a shove, really) in Layla's case.
>>36625923not funny enough to start a meaningless conversation.thanks for the advice joke fairy
>>36625925Layla probably thinks boys are icky still
>>36625948Your welcome. Twinkle Twinkle mother fucker.
>>36625854Echo doesn't make us hear better. It just lets us know where the sounds are coming from.Example: Before echo we could tell that there where three heart beats in the other room. Now we can tell exactly where in the room those people are standing. (with enough accuracy to be combined with geo-vision)
>>36625948Yeah it was unfunny enough.
>>36625583>>[ ] What does Laura think of the situation in the Scar?>>[ ] What’s Laura’s birthday?
>>36625970Some of her comments in prior threads suggest otherwise.
>>36625994>>36625972>not just ignoring shit you find boring >responding and shortening the threadI'll delete this when you delete yours
>>36625970In previous thread Layla has actively tried to get Laura and JJ together. When JJ took off his shirt Layla nudged Laura and said something like "I bet you like that don't you"Just paraphrasing. It's been a while.
>>36625970>implying she doesn't schlick it to JJ
>>36626041Layla is in it for the teasing.
>>36625988Echolocation, Enhanced Kinesics, or the second level of Electrostatic Touch all seem like things we might want in the near future, the first two for their own sake and the last because it's a gateway purchase for some nice stuff.
>>36626068we already got echo you dumb shit.
>>36626068>Echolocation>want in the near futureBack to the archive you go.
I vote for whatever everyone else is doing, plus subtly listening/peeping on the broken store to find any evidence of bad people having done bad things.
>>36626041She prolly just doesn't want his spaghetti dick in particular. Someone else, who's NOT like a little sister to her.
>>36626059If she isn't already, she definitely would once the effects of JJ's malnourishment goes away, and he starts getting fit as fuck.
>>36626168This post made no sense.
>>36626168Man I miss old simpsons
>>36626201don't forget that hobo smell has got to go as well
>>36626253It has millhouse in it. Thats probably par for the course.
>>36626086Convenient. We really need to pool shark it up at least once. Also, we should get some tabletop RPG books and dice and shit for our hideout. Organized Pretend is pretty good entertainment when you don't have the money to buy new stuff on a frequent basis. Or electricity. ...does the subway station have a bathroom? if it does, we could try to rig that into a full one.Hell, we could probably set up a bathhouse for the Scar, assuming we can get a steady water supply. Kevin disinfects it, Noriko and Lucas heat water, and so on. The ability to get clean on a regular basis would be a big morale boost throughout the Scar.
>>36626274JJ is bathing regularly now.
>>36626201Photo boost to agility 5 to create an ass of cosmic power. DOOM will try to get him to move to Latveria so he can boast that Latveria contains the greatest Man-Ass in the multiverse.
>>36626303We should drown cats for fun like real hobos
>>36626168>implying the thought of Johnathan James "Ghost Buster" Green KOing a Satan doesn't ruin her panties
>>36625583[X] All of the above
>>36626337Well, we are currently working on getting a pussy wet.
>>36626303Oh yeah let's quit all the's crime fighting shenanigans and open a bathhouse instead.
>>36626303That sounds kind of cool, but we'd need running water and loads more tubs.
>>36626363These are like the kinda jokes my dad would make if he talked about obscene thingsYou are all awful
This quest has weird ass speculation when crusty's posts are a bit spaced.

>>36626380a hobo Mutant bath house in the ruined subway station, that's total not creepy I am sure it will be packed

>>36626412Do you always stop to talk about shit you don't find funny?
>>36626438Not him, but you sound perturbed for a rather pointless reason.
>>36626424>JJ gets Kinesics and starts recognizing the lustful looks chicks/Kevin are giving himI'd like to see JJ's reaction.
>(1/2)>[X] What does Laura think of the situation in the Scar?>[X] What’s Laura’s birthday?Actually, there were a few things you wanted to ask. “Hey, Laura…” You begin, turning away from the crime scene across the road. Her eyes flick up, focusing on you, her silence inviting you to continue. You tell her about the events of last night, after you left the gala, and the trio of young larcenists you had the pleasure of running into in the Scar. She listens in silence as you ruminate aloud on their shady dealings, on the Hellions and the Corsairs, and on the Scar in general.“…I dunno.” Is what you arrive at, eventually. “What do you think?”“We are becoming dangerously visible.” She responds, immediately. You not in agreement. “The …‘Corsairs’… are correct, however.” You blink. They are? “One of them said that the current situation is not sustainable, and that they must be prepared, did they not?” Oh, yeah. ‘Jubes’ mentioned something like that. You nod. “That is correct.” She pauses, taking a tiny sip from her cocoa. Her lips glisten. “Yeah, but…” You frown, turning her words over in your head. “…prepared for what?” “I do not know.”
>>36626328No. For cosmic booty we would need to get Agility 5 the normal way. Then boost it to level 6 with Photo.
>>36626433Well, not in the subway station. We live there. But somewhere in the scar, yeah. For most hobos who haven't completely cracked, cleanliness is nonexistent from lack of facilities, not lack of desire. It's probably the same for mutant hobos.
Just means we should be looking into a new place to crash.Good thing were getting paid shortly. Might be able to get a ratty flat someplace.
>(2/2)You lean back in your chair, running the possibilities through your brain. Maybe this ‘Jono’ guy is preparing, like, an exodus. Maybe he’s trying to get as many of his people as possible into a position where they can buy their way out of the city. Or maybe… maybe it’s something else? Well, not much use thinking about it now. You stow the train of thought.“So.” You perk up in your seat. “Uh... there was something I was kinda wondering. When’s your birthday?” Laura stares at you. “My…?” Her brow arches perplexedly. “…I do not have a birthday. I was excised from the womb on 6th February 1999. There is no official certificate of my ‘birth’, however.” She pauses for another sip. “Why do you ask?” You smile a little sheepishly. “No reason. Just wondering.” She stares.You let her finish the rest of her drink in silence, and before long the two of you head back out into the cold. You glance across the street, unable to put the skeletonized restaurant out of your mind.>[ ] Take a look inside. >[ ] Listen in on police.>[ ] Just ask nearby cops. >[ ] Nahhhh, get to the Agency.>[ ] Write in.

>>36626548Lets go squat in an abandoned warehouse. In the shitty part of town, ain't like anyone will complain there. And we have the means to not be freezing cold there. Also bigger places are obviously better, even if not so legally owned
>>36626562>Listen in on police
>>36626627We could probably dig an underground hideout with our agility+strength. It wouldn't take too long, and no one would suspect muggas to be living in a hole.

>>36626625Thats in normal new york. Im sure theres cheapo places in hazardous areas we can look into.Current job could potentially pay for the rent by JJ alone.>>36626627Big cold and drafty.

>>36626688We could feesably make a small den thats accessed from the sewers. But itll smell terrible, and that will linger.Best bet we could have is finding a place along the train lines. Dig into one of the little safety alcove well into the dark and use the nearby maintanence hatch for entry/exit. Could always look into slumming in some of the storm drains as well, but thats always risky.

>tfw crusty is constantly trying to distract us with sidequestsI just want muh dollah dollah bills Crusty
>>36626562>15 years oldI feel creepy now
With the money we have it wouldn't hurt to get some supplies and go to a laundromat every now and then.
>>36626806JJ's only 18, it's not that weird.
>>36626789Gabby would be the only hard one to disguise.noriko's little electro flare ups would be a problem too.and there's Kevin's magic touch...
>>36626789We can deal with that when we get to it tbh. Its not like we would be renting someplace nice.
>>36626697There’s a question: where exactly in Queens are we? That could be important in figuring out whether city government would rather turn us into Mutietown and thus know where most of us are or evict us and put the area back into use.
>>36626806JJ's only three years older then her, chill man. Heck, we're practically felons just for being a free unregistered muties
>>36626806>15 years oldAnd? Fucking hell man, JJ isn't some 50 year old that hangs out at playgrounds to spy on little kids. And even if he was, do you feel bad killing people video games or something along those lines too?
If Layla was 2-3 years older, would a JJXMulti-slut ship have traction?
>>36626901Not to mention the fact that Laura is probably more adult than 90 year olds in some ways.
>>36626562>Look and ListenBut subtly, from the street. Do as much as you can without getting up.
>>36626971>slutDon't call Laura or Layla a slut, you cunt. I'll fuckin deck u m8
>>36626863>turn us into MutietownThere already is a Mutietown. It's called the mutant registration camps. All of the mutants in the scare are there because they didn't want to go to the camps.>evict us and put the area back into useThis is the current plan. But the city is still raising the money. And it will take a few more years before construction starts.
>>36626971>slutI'll fight you
>>36626806JJ's 18 and spent the past few years pretty much divorced from social interaction. It’s not even as creepy than a high school senior hooking up with a sophomore.
>>36627036JJ is the sophmore, Laura the senior
>>36626529That's what I meant. Spiderbutt beyond a spiderbutt
>>36626971You best check yourself. Before the waifu shit-storm wrecks you.
>>36627017>>36627033>>36627105I'll take that as a yes
>>36626971>implying I care about Layla's ageIt's not like we could be anymore in trouble with the law than we already are
If anyone in tabbycat asks JJ's origin story, we should tell them that he was a normal lizard until one day he got bit by a radioactive elf which gave him elf powers.
>>36627133Go ahead. I'm the same opinion as>>36627148>drug running, burglary, petty theft, technically murder that one time, the occasional assault.
>>36627029If we were in Manhattan, Staten Island or the nicer bits of Brooklyn, that would have already happened. But we're in Queens. There’s a decent chance the city didn't give much of a shit about the area before Kang the Conqueror slagged it, and less of a shit now. As long as the cost of evicting us is deemed to be higher than the cost of just leaving us alone, they won't do shit. You want an example of how it'll actually go? Look at what happened to US cities IRL in the 70s.
>>36627212you could have said modern day Detroit
>>36627200criminal trespassing, being a mugga, being a mugga in 65 mph zone, being a mugga without a license, no demon killing permit, making bitches weak in the knees without a permit, stealing police bullets by getting shot, and jaywalking
>>36627029So how likely is it that they're death or labor camps rather than internment camps, you think?
>>36627200also being a mutant >>36627148she will be 16 soon and I think we just turned 18so 2 years ain't too bad
>>36627212Not who you were replying to or a Clapistani. What happened to Clapistan cities in the 70s?
>>36627270Yeah, she's like less than 2 months from her birthday.
>>36627212>Marvel citizens>not being pissed offwishful thinkingand stop fucking up 4chan moot
>>36627262Crusty already said that they are not death camps yet. Labor Camps are only for Mutants that were actually convicted of a crime. (A other than you know, being a mutants.)More in common with the camps the US had for Asian people than the Nazi camps.
>(1/2)>[X] Listen in.>[X] Agency. “One sec.” You say, listening in on the squad car idling opposite you. You cut through the chatter of the city, filtering out the pounding of footsteps and constant murmur of distant traffic. You etch little snippets of conversation out of the vehicle, and soon enough they bloom into full, coherent sentences, your grasp tightening. The two officers inside are talking about mostly mundane stuff – you guess they’ve probably been there for a while. Someone does come by and ask what’s going on, though – some snazzy-dressed guy in fat shades, a cane tapping the pavement ahead of him. Their response doesn’t give away much, just that the incident is thought to be gang-related. Hmmm. You wonder if this is something brought on by Creeper’s disappearance.Turning to Laura, you – Shadows cluster in your head, bright and white. Suddenly, just for a second, you think you see – see – the footsteps pounding away along the pavement around you, your stomach suddenly churning as you become aware of a hundred thousand momentary ripples moving through the earth. They shimmer over the curve of your skull like patterns on the surface of a lake, scribbling out tiny, previously unseen details in the lay of the street, before the entire orchestra of light and sound suddenly recedes. Reality snaps back. “… athan? Are you hurt?”That’s Laura’s voice. You shake your head. “No… no, I’m fine. Just…” You grasp for the right words. “…felt a little dizzy back there.”
(2/2)She regards you in silence, seeming not entirely convinced. You assure her that you’re fine and make your way to the Agency. By the time you get there, the evening is just about underway, the sun slipping just ever so slightly towards the west. You knock, and don’t have to wait long before the girl from last time – Molly – opens it up. You get through a short barrage of questions about Laura, most of them regarding her hair or her eyes or how she gets her skin so soft (you’ve noticed that too, it must be a healing factor thing) before you manage to find your way upstairs. Upon arriving in the main office, you immediately notice that Remy is still sound asleep, sprawled out on the sofa. Someone’s drawn a set of whiskers on his face. On the other side of the room, the Blonde Phantom – dressed, as usual, in her stylish reds and really surprisingly obfuscating domino mask – swivels about on her chair, a cautioning finger pressed up against her lips. “Shhh.” >[ ] Payment, payment. >[ ] Ask if Remy’s okay.>[ ] Ask if she got Remy’s info.>[ ] Write in.

>>36627252I figured that went without saying. Although Detroit is odd in that they let the most prominent part of the city decay; most American cities try to keep the bits outsiders might visit in decent shape even if it requires letting everything else fall into ruin. Right now, I figure the Scar might end up as mutant Newark, except with slightly higher property values. >>36627274Rough version (not exactly an expert on the subject): racism, economic malaise and then drug-related violence led to the people with money (usually white) leaving for the suburbs and the poor, usually minority residents being stuck in a city that had the heart ripped out of its tax base. End result: urban decay that people with power spent a while not caring about or fixing in the most ham handed ways because it didn't affect them personally.

>[X] Ask if Remy’s okay.>[X] Ask if she got Remy’s info.You make a note to be quiet. Which isn’t easy – this place is old and its floorboards are decidedly creaky. Laura glides along beside you like a ghost, however, and you can’t help but watch the way her legs shift back and forth for a second. The amount of lucidity in every one of her actions is actually pretty daunting. She thinks about everything, every step, and it shows. Hell, just standing next to her makes you feel a little quieter yourself. Weird, that.You nod in Remy’s direction. “He okay?” The Phantom smiles broadly, her eyes scrutinizing you from behind her mask, like a cat’s. “He’s fine. I assume he teleported last night?” You nod, and she sighs very slightly in response. “Well, I’m sorry that your first official job had to be such a turbulent one. I assure that I had no inkling of what was coming there. None of us did.” “It’s fine.” You answer, shrugging. It was a nasty shock, but you got out alright. “Did you find Remy’s note?” She perks up. “Yes, I did!” She glances over at Laura, her eyes narrowing. “Before that, though, who’s your friend?” >[ ] Uh, uh, cousin, or something.>[ ] ‘Roommates’. >[ ] She’s another mutant. >[ ] Write in.

>>36628350I was going more for "totally oblivious to what that sounded like," actually.
>>36628616Since he can copy anyone, he'd be amazing at looking like he belongs wherever he is. Just mimic posture, the way they walk, etc, and he's good.
>>36628666We were Multitaskmastering.
>>36628666Gonna be honest until the part where we got quieter I thought we were doing that
>>36628666Oh Satan, you perv!
>>36628700Forgot to add that with Kinesics, JJ would be able to do facial expressions even better too. He wouldn't just be copying an expression without knowing what it means. After he gets used to the ability enough to know what most people are expressing, anyway.
>[X] ‘Roommates’.“We’re roommates.” You say, quickly. Maybe a little too quickly.Well, whatever. It’s not technically a lie.“Is that so?” The Phantom turns back toward her desk, fishing a large, heavy envelope out from under a stack of papers. She swivels back to you and, for once, appears to have a rather serious expression on under that mask of hers. “Well, while I’m sure she’s quite trustworthy, I’d appreciate it if she could wait in one of the other rooms. Perhaps Molly could keep her company?” “I could!” Chirps the younger girl, a big, dopey smile on her face. “Would that be alright with you, miss…?” Laura blinks, and you practically feel the artifice form in her brain, cogs whirring and hammers falling. “Williams.” She replies. “Laura Williams.” Her eyes turn to you for a second, before snapping back. “That is fine.” Molly drags (yes, drags) her out of the room, leaving you and the Blonde Phantom alone. You feel a little embarrassed, for some reason. When you think about it, Laura could probably be more useful to the Agency than you. She’s certainly a lot better at keeping secrets than you are. “Sorry about that.” Says the Phantom, seeming genuine. “I can’t say I advise bringing all too many people here in future. What we do is not entirely safe, after all.” You smirk just very slightly. You can’t help it. She has no idea how totally hilarious what she just said is. “Anyway…” She lifts the envelope up, waving it back and forth, almost like bait. “I suppose you want to get paid.” >[ ] Yesssssssss.>[ ] Ask about the job.>[ ] Ask about other jobs.>[ ] Ask [insert]. >[ ] Write in.

Even Northstar would ogle that
>>36628946and on the 8th day, God created dat ass. And it was good.
>>36628853>>36628946We couldn't possibly have truly mastered her stealthy walk with a few minutes. I vote we ogle her ass some more on the way back to the station.I really want Laura to turn around at some point and say completely dead pan "Johnathan why are you staring at my posterior?"
>>36628930>Does this count as "cute"You have to ask?>>36628946Mmm. Is nice. Second best ass in Marvel.
Should we ask a job for Laura? We could tell her as well that if she's looking for a specific type of power set we can keep an eye out for her.
>>36629093does she still have the tabby cat job of bouncing/waitressing?
>>36629087How come I only ever see storm wearing that headband thingy when she's around spider-man?
>>36629058ogle it via echolocation, so she doesn't catch JJ staring
>>36629106Well, she hasn't been showing up in there for a while, so...
>>36629106She vanished from that when JJ was back.
>>36629135But her catching JJ staring is the fun part.
>>36629164she'll just smell his arousal or notice his increase in pulse
>>36629186>smells his arousal>gonna have to take care of that for you JJ
>>36629186She probably has training to deal with her pulse so she won't get caught by lie detectors.
>>36629186>implying JJ won't notice her arousal first
>>36629235Woops, read it wrong.
>>36629131Well, the shape always seemed reminiscent of blinders. Must play hell with her peripheral vision.So I suspect it's to keep her from staring at spidey-ass.
>>36629260Still works that she'll find it noteworthy.
>>36628923Asking the important questions I see
>[X] Yesssssssss.>[X] Ask about the job.Yes, yes, you want to get paid, you so want that. You suffer through asphyxiation giant octopus arms for nothing.“Well, yeah.” You say. No big deal, right? It’s just more money than you’ve seen in, like, a whole three years, probably. No biggie. She grins, sliding out of her seat. She moves like some kind of lucid, red dream, effortless and determined. You imagine, though, that there’s just as much thought in her movements as there is in Laura’s (well, maybe not quite that much. But it’s probably close). She hands you the envelope. It’s heavy. Hnnng. Yes. Yes, that’s good. You refrain from opening it there and then, stuffing it away under the cavernous folds of your coat. “So…” You clear your throat a little. “What now? Have you contacted your client?” “Our client.” She corrects, a small, wry smile playing at her lips. “And yes, I have. I’ve not yet received an answer. Mr. Kamar stipulated that he wanted the information in physical, written form, however, so I haven’t yet sent him any of your findings.” You catch a hint of trepidation in her breath. “Is that… weird?” You ask. She perches her hands on her hips, one side of her face screwing up in consideration.“Well… it’s a little odd.”>[ ] Leave.>[ ] Anything you guys want to do? [insert]
what do you guys think of the sound absorb power? Would deal with sonic attacks, but still undecided.
>>36629316>[ ] Anything you guys want to do? [insert]Ask if we can get Laura and/or Lucas a job here.
>>36629135Actually JJ's muscle memory extrapolative only works with his eyes. He can't copy things he "sees" with echolocation. So says Crusty Jones.

>>36629316> Ask about other jobs> Ask about good birthday presents for Laura
Is it even January yet in the Quest?
>>36629524>Seems like a very bad idea.Why?
>>36629316>[ ] Anything you guys want to do? [insert]Since we are in the middle of a detective agency and we do have mad dosh, maybe we could ask her to look into a certain family members of ours?
>>36629624He's like twelve.
>>36629624Not that anon, but I think he meant that Lucas is unstable and wouldn't be a good fit for this kind of job
>>36629708>>36629694>He's like twelve.He's 14, and he won't do any damage with his powers or get JJ arrested (Layla, due to being a missing person, possibly).
>>36629524>>36629571Detective agency's usually require a lot of stealth. Lucas doesn't really stealth.Depending on what the job is we might be able to enlist some of the other tho.Surprisingly Gabby can stealth really well. She managed to steal food from Laura and JJ for a few day with out them noticing. She did get caught but it's still impressive if you ask me.
>>36629624What happened to us on our first job? We would have died instantly if not for our healing and strong skin. Lucas is a kid, he shouldn't be working as a mutant PI going into dangerous as fuck situations regularly and intentionally.
Like the other anon posted, we should seriously be trying to find at least our sister. Shit would be mad cool. JJ would probably flaunt all his cool ass abilities in front of his sis too.
>>36629724>>36629716He doesn't have to be a detective, you know.He can be a file clerk or something.
>>36629714Didn't he level a building during training?
>>36629742Kevin would be great at getting rid of confidential documents.
>>36629727>leave the city and all plot/jobs/people related to it to look for someone who will end up finding usNo, we shouldn't seriously be trying to find our sister.
>>36629764After we dared him.

Does anyone else find the idea of JJ taskmastering the phantoms sexy walk hilarious?
>[X] Try to get Laura a job.“Say…” A thought strikes you as you move to make your way out. “…Just… just wondering here…” You hold your hands up, as if to demonstrate the sheer hypotheticality of your hypotheticals. “…Do maybe have a need for someone else? Someone else working for you, I mean?” An eyelash rises under the mask. The Phantom gestures toward the ceiling, likely towards one of the rooms Molly is keeping Laura company in. “The roommate?” “Yeah…” You scratch your neck nervously. “She’s got loads of skills. Probably more useful than I am.”“Well…” She sighs. “As a rule, I try not to let talent go to waste. But this is, to be honest, a rather small operation. We’re not the Avengers. There’s no Stark money here.”She thinks for a moment – a very tense, uncomfortable moment – before she seems let her poise slacken, her shoulders falling into a shrug. “You said she has skills. What are they?” >[ ] [insert]
>>36630355>[ ] [insert]"She's sneaky, smart, good at fighting, can keep lots of secrets and is can put up with a lot of shit."
>>36630355What kind of skills do you need?
>>36630355Amazing senses, Snikt, top tier combat skills, actually trained to do sneaky jobs
>>36630355>"Let's hear the story straight from the horse's mouth.">call LauraThat way she will only tell them what she thinks is appropriate for them to know.
>>36630355Ask her she'd know better than me

>>36630355She's sneakier then me. Seriously.
>>36630453>>36630455This is a good idea. Laura lied about her identity for a reason.

>[x] She is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant'Just saying, so please consider her if we are to expect combat. Hell, I might even bring her in for heavy runs as backup.'JJ already pimping out X23I'm so proud
>>36630524Actually, wait. Just call Laura in and ask her if she wants the job first. I just realized we didn't even ask.
>>36630308I'll find it hilarious if JJ starts unconsciously walking like her.
>>36630455>>36630453>>36630561All of these.
>>36630453yea see if she even wants this as0 a job first.
>>36630453Really good choice.
>[X] Check with Laura“Well…” Man, you… are not entirely sure what to say to that. You don’t know what’s compromising and what isn’t. All of it, maybe? “I think, to be honest, she can probably tell you that stuff herself…” Now that you think about it, you kinda just went ahead with that without asking her, didn’t you? Kicking yourself inwardly, you lean out into the stairwell, and call Laura’s name. She comes plodding down the stairs a few seconds later, Molly trailing behind her. A long strand of hair on one side of her head has been tied into an awkward pigtail. She stares in your direction, her eyes asking in silence. “Hey. I was just talking to Ms. Phantom about maybe getting you a job.” She cocks her head to one side. “Is this job better than my current one?” She asks, in a flat, unadorned tone. Oh. Right. “Well…” How do you answer that? “…It would pay better.” “I see.” She says, thinking for a moment. “That is better.” She pronounces that last bit almost like a question. “Laura.” The Phantom cuts in, moving to stand in the doorway. You shuffle back almost automatically. “I asked John what skills you have. He said that it would be best to ask you.” Laura glances at you, before turning back to the Phantom. “I have been trained in one-hundred-and-twenty-seven styles of combat, as well as covert operating procedure, first aid, enhanced interrogation,”– You notice the Phantom frown a little at that –“advanced acrobatics, espionage….” etc etc etc it goes on for some time. By the end, the Blonde Phantom can only be described as looking decidedly worried. There is a long, awkward silence. “Jonathan…?” You nod. “Yeah?” “May I speak to you for a moment? In private?”--------------------------->HMQ 94: END>Congratulations! X-Point!>Congratulations! Paid!I'd go on for longer, but these damn bad gateway errors are making it laborious. Sorry.
>>36631255thanks for runningAnimal affnity if there's a vote
>>36631255Bank!Laura's secret agent/weapon past gets a reasonable reaction!And we get a great session from Crusty!
>>36631255I wonder what her reaction is.
Remember to post the ask link. I think it would be better if you did it at the end, but then again that's also more shit you have to keep track of.http://ask.fm/CrusyJones Bank

>>36631329"John was one of your parent's name Connors?"
I think we would have been more subtle with her skills then she was.
>>36631255Bank it, for the good of the land.
>>36631255Can you tell us how many shekels we got?
Solar Paneling, please!We can use our wings as solar panels and get lots of sunlight in.
Welp, there goes our job...
>>36631362>Reminder that JJ will be saying this soon.Depends on the definition of soon. It will definitely take more than 1 day for JJ to master a style of martial-arts. The entire span of this quest has been about a month and a half. *in game time)
>>36631329"I am in love with her"
>Where did you find this girl?Burger king
>>36631481>Depends on the definition of soon.Obviously.
>>36631477Exactly what I was thinking. She is an information broker so she's likely to know about The Facility. Cutting us loose would put them away from the heat.
>>36631498Ha!We need to say this.

>>36631573I really fucking want those prehensile elbow blades. And the prehensile tail, for that matter.
>>36631573all suck but maybe OLAR PANELING
>>36631589How would JJ hide them?I would only vote for horns if we also bought genetic mimicry. There are a lot of situations where JJ isn't going to want people to know he's a mutant. GM would allow him to look human at level 1.
Had a thought for a new power, although I haven't worked out the exact mechanics yet. Basically, it would let us drop a power down a rank for a period of time to build up a "charge", which we could then use to boost that power by a rank for an equal period. Higher levels in this power would let us bank more charges for longer, or possibly even take the boost first and then drop the rank afterwards.Opinions?
>>36631615Though not quite as much as I'd like to save points for Wings 3 (so we can leave our arms free) or Kinesics.
What are you guys banking for? Just curious
>>36631695>How would JJ hide them?Like he does his claws.
>>36631695Retractable and even if they weren't he can turn invisible.
>>36631695The horns, elbow blades, and tail are all freely retractable at will. Meaning that JJ can still pass as normal.
>>36631255Animal affinity>>36631695Horns are retractable, like claws.
>>36631712Enhanced Kinesics, aka Anti-Spaghetti powers.
>>36631712Agility 5, Wings 3, Bioweave 3, Animal Affinity, etc.
>>36631712Agility, Kinesics, Wings, some others. In no specific order yet.
>>36631695Fuck that GAMMA PRIDE WORLD WIDE
>>36631695It annoys me that so many people are against genetic mimicry because they think that it means that buying level 1 will force JJ to eat brains.No matter what utility power we buy it's not going to get to level 5. I legitimately only want GM level 1. And I want to leave it there like we did with adhesive touch.
>>36631712Agility, Kinesics, Wings,Optic blasts,
>>36631712Kinesics, Wings 3, or Optic Blast 3.
>>36631806The reason I don't want genetic mimicry is because then he no longer is a proper mutant.He'll be like those bland X-guys that get no real repercussions for having powers and still complain

>>36632275You underestimate the pastamancerbut we've already held hands with her
>>36632328Fuck man after hand holding I'm going to assume they've already hit all the bases and slammed it out of the park.
>>36632275I legitimately don't understand why someone would want to start posting in a quest when they haven't read the story.Ever since HMQ hit thread 50 we've had about least 1 person per thread posting that obviously doesn't have any idea what's going on.I'm not trying to be argumentative I'm honestly curious about why you'd start a quest when you don't know anything about it.

>>36632397It's like going to a library and picking up a book, flipping half way through the book, starting to reading then ask the librarian what's going on every 5 minutes.The only thing worse than someone not reading the archives are the people that actually tell them what's happening. Seriously. Someone honestly asked who Laura was and people actually told him. Why? You're only encouraging him to ask more stupid questions.
>>36632397I legitimately don't understand why someone would want to start posting.Ever since I learned to type we've had about least 1 person typing.I'm not trying to be argumentative I'm honestly curious about why you'd start posting when you don't know anything about it.
>>36632397I legitimately don't understand why someone would want to start posting about phasing .Ever since HMQ hit thread 1 we've had about least 1 person per thread posting that obviously loves phasing.I'm not trying to be argumentative I'm honestly curious about why you'd start a shit storm about phasing when you don't know anything about it.
>>36632503>You're only encouraging him to ask more stupid questions.This. Being a faggot enabler makes you just as much, if not more of a faggot than they are.
>>36632354>>36632328pretty sure we kissed her during one of her cry hugs (maybe just the forehead, does that count?)
>>36632674it wasn't in a romantic context so no
>>36632674No. If we kissed her, we'd remember it.
Phantom blond hsd been hired to find Laura...
>>36633086Shit. I didn't think of that.
>>36633086well then she should turn in who ever contacted her for that there mass murderers. who have committed crimes agents humanity.
>>36633172>>36633180But anons.. should she just convince JJ to return the poor girl to her caring mother?
