Your laughter is ever so slightly muted by the irate snake wrapped around your throat.Not that she could choke you, or anything.The tip of her tail sweeps back and forth, slapping the side of your neck, her hissing vibrating through her body. You reach a careful hand up, running it along her cool scales, petting the length of her tail till she calms. "There, there. It is not something to be mad about, yes?"You think she muttered something about hiding beneath a chair and biting someone."Mhm. We will get you some food, find some games."She snorts, loosening her coils."That won't make me less mad!""It will put you to sleep, though."You can practically feel her blushing."A-All lamia are like that! We can't help it!""Don't worry, yes. I will make sure you stay warm. And don't fall off.""Hmph!"You turn back to your highly amused half-elven friend.>Food, please.>Games? Where?>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?>Other (?)

>>37589214>>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?This can only lead good things!
>>37589214>>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?Don't mind that we have four left feet.
>>37589214>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?WE MUST DO THIS! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ip2MUtBoUxADancing Spider is a go.
>>37589214>Games? Where?We can't dance. We have four left feet. And if we feed snake now she'll miss everything
>>37589214>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?
>>37589214>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?But Lyra, you can't dance, you got four left feet!
>>37589214>Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?we have a giant spider with feet sharper then spears who probably weighs have a ton or more who has never danced as a spider before.... YES THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN, WHAT COULD GO WRONG!
Spider dancing.Sure, yeah.You got this.Writing!
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>37589418Dice rolling for the heck of it!This should be great~
Oh jeez I just woke up.Are we asking some unfortunate human to teach us to dance?
>>37589488Don't be so worried!Her human powers are amazing enough that this should be no problem.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>37589214> Milady, would you care to grace me with this dance?I wonder how much harder the waltz is in quadruplicate
>>37589488No.We are asking a specific unfortunate half-elf to teach us to dance.
>>37589488Her human half-powers allow her to do all sorts of things.
>>37589488Im pretty sure its lann.Hopefully one of those halves is strong enough to survive this
>>37589488Actually, I think we just asked Lann to dance, or maybe Ez. Either way, it should end adorably... and probably in flames.
>>37589488"Shall We Dance?", but with spiders instead of Japanese businessmen or Richard Gere.
>>37589546Why is an arachne doing disco the most adorable thing ever? I suspect it may be the cheesy afro and the bell bottoms.
Well, dancing is fun, though I feel bad for missing out on carnival games. They are the most favorite.
>>37589582Obviously we must recreate Thriller now!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIx_HbmRnQY
>>37589660But there aren't any zombies around anon.And if there were Lyra would soul drain them before she could teach them to dance any way.How about this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_K8G4eAXC88
>>37589763Every day, I mourn our lack of pedipalps, and wonder whether that is our arms.It would be so much easier to put fake human legs on if we had pedipalps to strap them to.
In the background, a drum beat starts again, and a few moments later, strings begin to accompany it, a tangy sort of tune.The smile that crawls across your face could potentially be called 'sinister'.One hand is extended to Lann, palm out and thumb wide- The other is neatly tucked into the small of your back as you bow as best you can.Lann just watches.You drop lower on your legs and bow your head. "Most gracious lady Lann. Would you bless me with a dance on this fine eve?"Lann cocks her head to one side as laughter rings out from the surrounding adventurers."Eh. You helped, so-"She reaches forward- And is immediately intercepted by a fluttering poofball in a white dress."Absolutely not! As Herald and foremost amongst-"Sheszka is tugging at your other arm."What is dance, Alpha?"Even Jin is starting to rouse herself.A soft, hissing laughter joins Lann's outrageous cackling as she takes your hand. Nin looks like she's trying to inflate herself like a balloon, but all she can manage is to puff up her cheeks and stomp."No! I'm first!""Ah, but as the invited party, t'would be such an insult to refuse-""No!">GAMES. HOW ABOUT THEM GAMES.>Dancing circles are a thing right? Please?>One at a time?>Other (?)
>>37590023>>GAMES. HOW ABOUT THEM GAMES.Dancing is a trap. If we dance, we will be stuck dancing with all of them forever.
>>37590023>Other (?)while they bicker slowly sneak away and try your hand at some games.
>>37590023>Nin doesn't ge ta dance at all! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
>>37590023>>One at a time?Lann first
>>37590023>One at a time?
>>37590023> One at a time?> Next up is decided by who wins at various carnival games
>>37590023>One at a time? Lann firstAs befitting of a Queen.
>>37590023>otherCharge herald with teaching the wolf dancing and continue with intended partner
>>37590023>>One at a time?Wa ha ha Nin's been foiled~... She's going to make us pay, isn't she? Totally worth it.
>>37590023>One at a time?They'll get their turn!
>>37590023>One at a time?"I asked Lann first, if you behave, I'll dance with you too. That means you Nin, behave."
>>37590023>One at a time?>One at a time. The fair Lady Lann first.
>>37590100Supporting, tell Nin she can go next if she shows Shez what to do.
>>37590100Supporting this one.
>>37590259But there are carny games...
It looks like we're going one at a time!Do people prefer the carnival games to determine past Lann, orHave Nin teach Sheszka?
>>37590314>Have Nin teach Sheszka?This one, yes.
>>37590314I am always voting for carnival games.
>>37590314>Have Nin teach Sheszka?Thats alright
>>37590314> Carny games between Sheszka and Jin, provided they bring Ez along> The "loser" of that competition gets taught by Nin how to dance, so they win something even if they lose.Everyone gets to feel important. Everyone wins.
>>37590314>Have Nin teach Sheszka?Yes
>>37590314>Have Nin teach Sheszka?if nothing else it would be amusing to see
>>37590314>Have Nin teach Sheszka?Oh this is going to be fuuuun.....
Thank you for breaking the tie. Teaching it is!Writing!
>>37590314>Do people prefer the carnival games to determine past Lann,
>>37590314>Have Nin teach Sheszka?because funny
>all this dancing businessThis is the exact opposite of how I imagine a fair.Which is cotton candy and corndogs in one hand, some kind of rifle for target shooting in the other.And then rides after you eat all the corndogs and cotton candy and are most likely to get sick.
>>37590531Thing is, this is more of a seasonal festival in ye olden' times. They don't have rides (other than cart rides which we are more likely to be drawing than riding)
>>37590634They also don't have corndogs.
>>37590676No rides I can accept.I cannot accept no corndogs.
>>37590723Well, is it worth going into the meta well on this one? We have the know how. Vegetable oil, cornmeal, and sausage are already things, as are little sticks.
>>37590750If there are no corndogs, then I do think we should produce them at some point.Now I sort of want to run the corndog stand with one of those little paper hats.
>>37590750Do we know how to make condiments? It's not the same without condiments.
>>37590832I dunno, they're pretty good without condiments, it's how I prefer 'em.But now that you mention it, FUCK, WE'RE NEVER HAVING KETCHUP AGAIN.DO YOU KNOW HOW SECRET THE RECIPE FOR KETCHUP IS? NOT EVEN THE WORKERS KNOW!
>>37590867Ketchup isn't all that great, man.
>>37590990But it's a lot harder to replicate than coffee.Soda, though, we'll miss that too.
>>37590990That's not even to mention that our palette has completely changed to basically omit sweetness.
>>37591007Soda isn't all that great either. Not to mention that it'd fuck up Lyra.
>>37591157Soda is amazing.
>>37591115We can't taste sweet things anymore? Has it come up or is it an assumed spider thing?
>>37591338We can taste sweet stuff.Regular spiders can't, but we don't have the mouth of a regular spider.
You stare, goggle eyed at the impending squabble.You need, you need-Aha."Nin?""-and I- Wha- Lyra?""Could I trust you with Sheszka?""Huh?"The wolf leans around your side, peering at the little moth, who looks between the two of you."Could you show her how to dance?"The moth looks trapped, frozen between wanting to protest and wanting to help you out.She purses her lips, eyes gleaming."If such is what my Queen desires."She responds, flipping her hair back with a toss of her head.You'll probably pay for this later.You pull Sheszka out in front of you, scratching her head and mussing her hair as she looks up to you."Nin will teach you how to dance, yes. And I will be right there if you need me."She nods twice, one ear flopping, and follows the Moth to the circle, hand in hand.You turn back to Lann, watching the whole scene with the fixed smile of someone who knows exactly what kind of trouble they're stirring."Milady Lann? Shall we dance.""Oh, I would be ab-so-lutely delighted."She takes your hand, leading you side by side towards the roaring fire, where the circle slowly spins about the pyre, people dancing and laughing."I must apologize, yes?"She takes both your hands, standing before you, looking up into your eyes."What for?""I am afraid that I have four left feet."Her involuntary grimace at the pun brings just a little joy into your spidery heart, and you push her into the slowly moving crowd, doing your best to step in time to the music.At the very least, Lann recovers fast from terrible jokes.She tries to lead you through a series of fast steps- and after dodging a few ill timed razor legs, settles into a slow shuffle. Side to side, step in, out- She even lets one hand go, spinning herself with the other, laughing. Even Ezzy is shifting back and forth, her body twisting in time to the music, eyes fixed on the fire above.
>>37591338It was mentioned that candy doesn't really do anything for us. This isn't to say that it tastes bad or we can't taste it, but our tastebuds are no longer really configured to crave sweet things so much as raw meat.
>>37591463The music stops, and the crowd roars, people switching partners, laughing as they read themselves for the next song.Sheszka runs up, her dress hiked to her waist, tail barely visible above.Lann spies your moth trailing behind, and intercepts the wolf with a wink to you. "C'mere, fuzzy. I'll show you a quick step."Sheszka smiles and waves as the half-elf drags her off, and your hands are suddenly full of moth."My turn."You smile at her, despite the steely-eyed return gaze, and wait for the music to start.It's the strings that open this number, a crawling tune that's soon joined by few more of the instruments. Whatever they are.Nin lets her hands slide up your arms, pulling herself close, slow stepping in time with the people all around you. Who are at least smart enough to give you quite a bit of space.You hum along, your hands over her shoulders, swaying with the steps and holding her close.She keeps quiet, wings folded and hands lightly holding your arms, her head turned to one side, pressed against your stomach. You're a little tall, all things considered.The song ends, and Nin steps back, though she keeps her hands on your arms, sliding down the chitin as she moves. "Thank you.""Mhm."What do you say to that?She seems happy, at least. Lann leads the excited wolf back to you, throwing her arms up and laughing as she closes."I learned to dance, yes!"You smile back at her. >A circle dance would probably be fun, yes?>What kind of games would a medieval festival even have?>Food. Now.>Other (?)
>>37591487>>A circle dance would probably be fun, yes?
>>37591487>>Food. Now.Poor stall owners won't know what happened
>>37591487>>What kind of games would a medieval festival even have?Hee~.
>>37591487>What kind of games would a medieval festival even have?and we taught our dog some new tricks, hot damn.
>>37591487>What kind of games would a medieval festival even have?Deciding what to do at a festival is serious business. You have to efficiently hit as many attractions as possible.
>>37591487>What kind of games would a medieval festival even have?
>>37591562>>37591487I sort of want to append an (also food) to my games vote.Because I can't imagine not having food on a stick while playing games.
>>37591487>A circle dance would probably be fun, yes?afterwards we grab a few snacks one of everything... then we play some games and get some more snacks...
Can't believe we didn't try our weird future dance styles. I think a break-dancing spider would have turned some heads, and made mom rush out in embarrassment.
>>37591487>Food first.>What kind of games would a medieval festival even have?Load up with snacks and go check out the games.
>>37591646I don't think we can really cut a rug safely.I mean we are made out of half-ton blades.
>>37591646You can't kill the metal
>>37591681Yeah, that's something we should practice alone before we ever think about doing it in a crowd. We could accidentally slaughter everything in a ten foot radius.Also, we should practice it alone to prevent making a fool of ourselves in public. Some of the human dances we know won't translate well into spider form.
>>37591681And now I'm imagining a capoeira arachne fighter.
Games, with a side of food?Writing!
>>37591750Skull Spider Butt Twerking
>>37591755That is appropriate festival procedure, yes.
I just realised... If we were to put secure seating on our skullbutt, we could become a Spider-Coaster...
>>37591750Always practice dances in private first. Don't want to kickstab someone in the face.>>37591752-I- am imagining an arachne on her back wriggling and being embarrassed.
>>37590634Well this time around, there shall be rides.Spider rides.
>>37591922>>37591850We'd have to make some rudimentary seatbelts too, if we want to do anything fancy.
>>37591737That reminds, they probably only have medieval period music with some renaissance era stuff if we're lucky. I pity any world hat doesn't have Jazz and Rock&Roll. This needs to be remedied as soon as possible.
With a monster hanging from each arm- and a laughing elf following you around- who has somehow located more alchohol. A miracle of festival spirit?Whatever.You lead them towards noise. And also the scent of food, because hungry.An excited tiny snake, with a handful of your hair, directs you towards a rather large amount of laughter- There's a variety of games running. More than a few you can't play, though.There's kids in a hastily drawn circle, armed with heavily padded training weapons and wearing bucket helms that are far, far too large for them duking it out. People cheer as they collide, one child's mask spinning backwards on his head as he swings, the other falling face first into the dirt as she attempts an overhead swing. There's also a few woven branch circles, hanging from a simple frame- people standing at a line riven in the dirt, hurling balls at the swaying circles. And not hitting much of anything. You are fairly certain that beer is a fairly major portion of the event.You make a spiderline to a little kiosk emitting a most pleasant sort of smell. Ducking beneath the cloth roof, you are face to face with a pair of staring- well, dwarves, as far as you can tell.Unless the world has other short bearded people."Uh. Hello.""Hello, yes. Can I have some food?""Sure. Yeah, sure. A copper for a stick. How many would you like?""Everything you are cooking would be a good start.""Right then."They adjust fast. Moments later you are back in the street, fistfulls of stickmeat in your hands. And two in your mouth. Patience is not a virtue you possess. Luckily for Esmerelda, the meat is already hacked into small cubes- you snap off sections of stick, and she eats it sideways, like corn on the cob.
>>37592623With your friends mostly quiet due to chewing, you wander the streets watching games. People taking tries at drunken archery, drunken wrestling, drunken swimming. Lann manages a rather impressive shot with her tankard balanced on her head.Ezzy is a little disheartened at the size of the games, but the food leaves her drowsy. Her complaining trails into mumbling, and then snoring. Very predictable. With the moon perfectly over head- And you've already started yawning- Your shell is covered in now slumbering monsters. And you have to carry Nin. And Lann. You'd think she'd have a plan for drinking that much.At least she's conscious enough to unlock her door. At which point you all pile into her little room- mostly.You leave a few legs trailing into the hallway, lying your head down and going to sleep.>Next up is studying/training. >I'd like 2 sets of 2d100, please!
Rolled 72, 93 = 165 (2d100)>>375926441's here I come.
Rolled 36, 12 = 48 (2d100)>>37592644And thus Lann gets ribbed for an entire month about bedding five monster girls at once.
Rolled 59, 21 = 80 (2d100)>>37592644
>>37592644wonder how the rest of the family fared that night
Rolled 49, 37 = 86 (2d100)>>37592644The following morning, the villagers found spiders sleeping in all sorts of odd locations. Our mother spent all day tracking us all down.
Rolled 16, 78 = 94 (2d100)>>37592644

>>37592693>>37592683>>37592691The rest of the family had good festival times, and got scattered around the village.Mom has to perform one of those boring collection quests where she looks in all the nooks and crannies for skullantulas. Except just normal... antulas.
>>37592827But we have a skull.
>>37592886Yeah, there's ONE skullantula.And a bunch of others with no skull. And you have to find those too.
>>37592742This looks about right!Writing!
>>37592644The quest was explicitly for 5 Widow Arachne.The Skultula is the follow-up quest with a boss fight at the end, but she never did find the book store Sara broke into and didn't leave until the festival was over.
>>37592983Goddamnit all I want is a larger wallet so I can get the cool sword upgrade thing.
>>37593142We don't use swords, though. I'd be fine with a Master Glaive, though.
>>37593232The sword is needed to complete a missing item quest. Handing it in gets you a magic item as a reward.
>>37593232No see you can upgrade the big sword to not break after five uses if you get the big wallet
The morning is an interesting runaround. Not for you, of course.But your mother has the unenviable job of trying to locate and collect a variety of monsters, including her six arachne children.You do manage to say goodbye to Lann, who moans something about a headache and pulls her pillow back over her head.Aria and Elle apparently took refuge in Jin's parents house. Your brothers slept in a barn that had been left open. And Sara somehow managed to fast-talk herself into the trading post, and spent the entire night reading books. She's more than a little loopy on the way home.___________________________________________After a few days, your sister's sleeping pattern has returned to normal, and the tremendous bags around her eyes have faded.So you consider it safe enough to approach her."Sara?""Yes?""I was thinking, yes?""Should I get my book?"You blink."Why?""This is history happening, yes?"You grab her cheeks, distorting her face as she starts to giggle."You have spent far too much time around Nin, yes. I want to learn more about magic. There are things I can't do with just power, yes?"Her eyes light up.You feel a chill down your spine."Sit!"Maybe it's the teacher harmonics in her voice, but you find yourself on the ground, legs curled next to you in short order. She skitters away, rummaging through piles of books till she finds one in particular.Staying on her feet, she starts to read."The critical piece of your continuing magical education is study: A student remains a student throughout their life, ever dedicated to the ideal of an ever-advancing knowledge of magical-"Oh. Oh gods, what have you done._________________________________________________________When it's all said and done, you've learned a few more spells.Actual spells, rather than rock shaping, or hoping the local spirits like you.And when you try to ask what's wrong with that, Sara directs a glare that could easily melt steel at you.Mages.
>>37593773Of course, when Mom drops in, literally manhandling you to your feet, you take it as a blessing. You silly, silly spider."Did you think you could get away with it, little one? Just having your friends train?""No?""Arena."What follows is far to gruesome for any history book to record- There is no mercy in the arena. Pitiful pleas go unheard, and it is said that forevermore, the whimpers of two spiders, their names forgotten in the mists of time, are ever heard in that unhallowed ring. And on quiet days, if you listen closely, you can hear an angry, cry, like a drill sergeant."Parry! Block! Dodge!""Again!"The heat doesn't particularly lend itself to ferocious amounts of exercise. But on the plus side, you do get to enjoy a bit of spoiling form your friends.On the downside, it's because you actually can't lift your body off the ground.Aria is likewise assisted by Elle, though the latter is merciless as ever- She takes your inability to complain as compliance, and uses the two of you as test subjects for all her clothing experiments. You have worn more than two dozen different models of 'spider-underwear'. Three of them sent mom fleeing and blushing.It's an interesting summer.>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.>Elle Niallasdottir, starring in 'One dress to rule them all'.>A tale of moths and dust entwined>Esmerelda and Eggs>Other (?)

Elle takes the vote with her threats to the very fabric of society!Writing!
>>37594171There may be a delay for food. My apologies.
>>37594171I-is this the true form of our sister?!
>>37594171oh god she found out about moth silk
>>37594238Uh oh.Elle might have some grander schemes than we thought.
>>37594238>*German chanting intensifies*This is why Elle can never learn magic and only use magical cloth under the supervision of a mage, wizard, or sorcerer. The suffering wrought will eclipse the fall of the city in the eyes of history.
>>37594238Well, there is such a spider species who hides brilliant plumage below their usual chitin flaps. In a magical world, such a colorful spider would surely produce colorful silks. Add a little bit of Elf Dad's magic and a little bit of cross influence with Sara, and I can see Elle becoming some sort of terrifyingly maniacal rainbow spider.As for the other undertones... I think mom's been a slightly better parent to her than all that.
Alright, I'm back and writing again!
>>37594838Mom would probably try to take down any of her kids that go rogue. Assuming Elle goes pick related though, I imagine it being a situation where Mom is unable to stand against her, not because of her power, but because her attire is so damn lewd that she keeps having to blush and cover her eyes.
>>37595767>I imagine it being a situation where Mom is unable to stand against her, not because of her power, but because her attire is so damn lewd that she keeps having to blush and cover her eyes.I assume that, during her time adventuring, Mom has dealt with her fair share of scantily clad sorceresses and evil doers. I think she would be more ashamed that Elle's fashion sense followed that line.
>>37595851She probably carried around a cape, not for defense or fashion, but so she could throw it over said people then beat them unconscious. Alternately, Elf Dad gave no craps and just set everyone on fire, regardless of state of dress.
>>37595906>She used that cape as a blindfold until she got used to seeing Elf-dad naked
A few days after the second 'underwear incident'-Which resulted in Mom choking on a large piece of some unidentified animal when Elle revealed that your latest set of test panties consisted entirely of lace-A new crisis arose in the nest.Elle, as usual for her early morning plans, had absconded from hunting duty, rooting about the nest for more books about fashion. Or even a book about monsters or magic or humans with a few illustrations of people in clothes. She is rather terrifically un-picky.Anyhow- You were lying down, nursing a muscle ache that wouldn't quit, and quite enjoying a dust enhanced hot cloth on your back when Mom directed Elle to check the vault for more books.Thirty minutes or so later, she returned with wedding dress.Silenced reigned across the nest.For a little while, anyway."W-Where did you find that, dearheart?""A chest, yes? It was almost buried! Look at it! It's so beautiful- Ah, there's different materials and lace and frills- The chest is made of layers of lace, yes!""Please- Please be careful with that, yes?"Elle's head snaps up with a manic look in her eyes."Is this Yours?""Mine and your father's, yes.""Dad wears dresses?""No, dear. It is a wedding dress.""Wedding dress?""When two people are married, it is called a wedding, yes?""Married?""When two people love each other and want to spend their lives together-""Like Lyra and her friends?"You choke."When two Adults love each other and want to spend their lives together, they have ceremony to bind themselves together before the gods. And sometimes, the woman wears a dress like that.""I want to make more.""Oh dear."Elle spends the day feverishly at work- demanding silk of everyone left in the nest, weaving faster than your eyes can follow. Measuring and sewing and cutting and weaving and...
>>37596047She finishes shortly before your father arrives home with Aria, having spent the day studying the ruins or something.He pulls himself from the rope ladder into the nest proper, rising to stand beside his frozen daughter, and looks on into the carnage his home has become.There are shred and scraps everywhere.Bits of cloth and thread and lace line the nest, lying across blankets and books and anything else in their path.And front and centre in your home, you stand next to your mother, your sister, and all of your friends.All of you wearing wedding dresses of various design.Your own splits in the centre, just past your hips, a pair of wing like pieces of cloth failing neatly over your foremost legs. Which are both sporting lace stockings, for some unimaginable reason. Nin is wrapped in some low cut dress, her whole back exposed, the front made of layered lace and only barely opaque. Sheszka has a silk bouquet, whine Esmerelda has a long train falling over her tail.Dinner is awkward. >Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.>A tale of moths and dust entwined>Esmerelda and Eggs>Other (?)
>>37596047>>Esmerelda and Eggs
>>37595906Elf Dad's "burn now, ask questions later" approach to adventuring gives me an adorable image of how they might have met.> "Ha, got you you foul spider creature!"> "Why are you attacking me?"> "You can talk?!"> "I'm also wearing clothes you stupid elf! Did that not tip you off?"> "About that..."
>>37596073>A tale of moths and dust entwined
>>37596073>>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.IT WILL WIN EVENTUALLY!
>>37596073>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.We'd be a shit sister if we missed this and this could be the last post we get during the timeskip.
>>37596073>A tale of moths and dust entwinedgod damn I love you OP, I'm still laughing my ass off over here
>>37596073>>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.My goodness, Elle. My goodness. Good thing she didn't find out about Nin's silk.
>>37596073>leg stockings and wedding dressthis is amazing.>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.we've put it off LONG ENOUGH! Though I am also interested in eggs and moths.
>>37596073>>Esmerelda and Eggs

>>37596073>>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'
>>37596073> Esmerelda and Eggs
>>37596118I think we brought this up in an earlier thread, spider mom was exploring some ruins and elf dad thought that spider mom was the dungeon's guardian but before anything could come of it they were both attack by the real guardian and run until both of them were so tired they couldn't be bothered to fight each other. Then one thing lead to another and eventually they got hitched much to the shock of everyone who know spider mom.
>>37596073>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'.Evolutions, Evolutions. What will they have? Place your bets.3:1 Aria is a Half-Lord like mom.Sara should be more interesting as she went a completely different line, the magic line.
>>37596073What about Jin's dress? Aria? Sara?
>>37596225Sara is split pretty much evenly between a magic half-lord and an orb-spider.
>>37596073>Aria and Sara in 'The little spiders that could'
>>37596073>>Esmerelda and EggsYay spider stockings, I hope Elle turns them into a fashion trend.
>>37596253Jins probably back at home.Aria was out and just got back
>>37596317I like them.We should keep some.
Sister Power takes the vote!Writing!
>>37596518Can we do something with out brothers at some point? We haven't heard from them in a while.
>>37596659I'm pretty sure that we've never actually heard them talk, even. I can't remember anything in quotation marks that was attributed to (either of) them.
>>37596775Monosyllabic answers only so far.
>>37596775In that case I'd really like to do something with our brothers
>>37596865>>37596775We were even already hunting with them. So we did hear them talk already.We didn't have much to do with them before because our interests don't really coincide.Maybe they want to learn the art of big-game hunting now.
>>37596659How did the last time go?IIRC we just hunted stuff while being awkward at each other. Arachnes are highly solitary by nature, I recall QM stating. Us amassing a gaggle of friends is unusual probably because friends is the only thing we had in past life.So in the end, the duo have their own thing going. If you want to attach to them, well, we'd need some actual plan and good ideas on how to do it, lest it be an awkward waste of time. (Chiefly QM's time on writing it out.)
>>37596964Big game hunting up-river would probably be a good bonding experience with all of our siblings. It could be a family-outing safari!
>>37596961>>37596964how about a little contestthem vs Lyra and Arya, the ones who bring back the biggest prey win
>>37596659Could be interesting if one of the brothers would try to romance either Jin, Nin or Sheszka. Probably while the other states his opinion about that with retching noises.
>>37597035That wouldn't be fair, Lyra would just attract every bear for miles around and win by sheer volume of meat.
>>37597035>>37597072Yeah, it's not a very fair competition.They bring back lots of normal prey, we bring back one big prey. Different hunting styles.
>>37597048>brother gets a crush on nin>moth is now distractedthis is ideal.
oh wouldn't Elle level from making the wedding dress?She was at 99 before the timeskip started, and based on the description she probably pushed her web production to make all those.
>>37597035Maybe just the biggest volume of food.
>>37597166Elle already evolved, as did the brothers.The pastebins just haven't been updated.
>>37597035>them vs Lyra and Arya, the ones who bring back the biggest prey win1)Bros WILL lose it.2)In the attempt to get the biggest catch, they may run into something too hot to handle.I remind you, they're generic 1-evo arachne.Lyra is triple-blessed highly trained wizarding twice-evolved spiderbutt. She alone can wreck them. Arya is also going to be twice-evolved and is also trained her ass off under mom. She can likely wreck them too.
The night was normal.Giant spider normal, of course. Not human normal.You live in a giant tree and consider a bear to be an easy meal. You have come to accept that your normal is so far off in the distance from other peoples that it can no longer be glimpsed.You are fine with that.Anyway, night was normal. Sara stayed up too late trying to read books, and you wound up dragging her away to bed as you snuffed her lights out and Mom laughed. Aria had managed to crawl down from the arena, but hadn't quite made it to the dinner circle, and Elle had thrown a blanket over her, making her look like some sort of tragic spider traffic accident, legs and one arm hanging out from beneath the white sheet.Your smallest sister had attempted to complain bitterly, but you just held her close and dozed off hugging her. She isn't anywhere near strong enough to pry her way free. And then came morning. Aria was the first one up, Shouting triumphantly, cackling and flexing and generally making a lot of noise until Mom threw a balled up blanket at her head."Ahahahaha- No- wait!"When she fought her way free of the blanket, you peeked, cracking a few eyes to see what the deal was.Aria had grown. She stood taller than before, easily. Maybe a little shy of Mom? You pushed your way up onto your hands, struggling to free yourself from your personal monster pile to get a better look.She had horns, much like Mom, dividing her hair- That was where the similarities ended, though. Her pair jutted up and out, branching almost randomly. Also, they were apparently formed of a dark, smoky sort of crystal, shot through with glittering blue. Her hands, rather than simply mimicking Mom's, had followed suite: A smoky sort of crystal inset in the chitin, with veins of the blue crawling across her shell.
>>37597286She catches you staring, bearing her fangs and grinning, one finger extended accusingly."I'll have you sparring in the ring, yes!""Okay.""You're supposed to be intimidated.""Too early."She sighs. Then points again."Sara!"And you turn, and find you smallest sister stretching and yawning, a new form all her own.A bit bigger than before. Barely noticeable, though. Her speckled shell is practically glimmering in the morning light, each dot raised, reflecting light all around. Your fingers drift over one- it's like a faceted gem, but part of her shell? There's no part where they're pushed in, just chitin through and through. She's also sporting a tiny pair of horns- maybe two inches tall at best, and barely pushing through her hair, but each is a brilliant white sort of crystal, almost glowing. Or maybe actually glowing. Your sister is currently trying to chase her own butt around so she can get a better view of the changes. You can show her to the mirror later. After more sleep, maybe. You settle your studious little sister with a hug, pinning her arms to hger sides and pulling her to a halt as you congratulate her. "Well done, yes.""You can't say I am the smallest anymore, yes.""No, you definitely are."She frowns, and her horns spark to light as she glares.Magic powered then. You laugh and grab one of the horns- It's warm to the touch- and apparently sensitive, judging by the way your sister immediately yelp, yanking her head from your hands and covering the little crystal protrusions.All in all, a good start to the morning.
>>37597318>And that's it for tonight!>Next session will likely be monday, barring unforeseen circumstances.>Comments, questions and concerns, Answered in thread!
>>37597318Haha all of you jerks have horns.So unstylish.
>>37597318>You laugh and grab one of the horns- It's warm to the touch- and apparently sensitive, judging by the way your sister immediately yelp, yanking her head from your hands and covering the little crystal protrusions.>>37597358Thanks for running!
>>37597318Our poor sister is still gonna get beat up by mom and probably us if she actually challenges us.>>37597358Thanks for the thread
>>37597358Thanks for running.
I just realized Sara could have been elegible for Grave Arachne evo since the Hydra fight.
>>37597318>flashlight hornsshe'll just stay up reading until she passes out, hidden in a blanket fort >>37597358thanks for running
>>37597358Thanks for running.Will the other two options be in a pastebin?When will the sheets update to reflect the evolutions?What exactly are Aria and Sara's evolutions and what can they do?
>>37597436>Our poor sister is still gonna get beat up by mom and probably us if she actually challenges us.As far as I gathered, she IS challenging us.Although in a spar, the difference probably won't be too overwhelming. We both got 2-evo swole, we both got mad training. Lyra has a little edge, but dice will play a big role.>>37597358So they're both half-lord with subvariants, right? What are they called?
>>37597390Haha!>>37597432>>37597436>>37597445>>37597497Thanks for playing!>>37597459She was rather massively overqualified for what she got, to be honest.>>37597497You say that like she doesn't do it already with stars
>>37597459I think her specialized sub-evolution might have disqualified her from branching further into our tree, though I could be wrong.
>>37597527>You say that like she doesn't do it already with starsoh, riiight
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>37597523She's going to beat us up and take our lunch money, but maybe then there will be peace.
>>37597527Did Sara get a blessing from a god?>>God of those who make things go BOOM
Honestly, we were never super good at the spear.We're more about just sort of brute forcing it.
>>37597539Nah it's not like that.Lyra and Sara were both variant Widow Arachne.Grave was available for Lyra (retaining her ruby variant, but we just had to get MOAR), so it would be for Sara.However, Grace and Wolf are martial-themed evolutions. She's a caster who really doesn't lift, out of three shown to us she would only have inclinations for Orb, and even that is unlikely due to lack of weaving practice.
>>37597607It's not like spears are something that require a great deal of finesse. You just thrust it forward as hard as you can and hope it penetrates their armor.
>>37597519>>37597523>>37597574I'll try and get everything updated for monday- It'll probably be done the morning of. Tomorrow is going to be busy.Sara is a half spell lord- Massive mana generation capabilities, ehanced chanting and speedier spells are now hers. Her blessing got an upgrade as well!Aria is a half Gem lord. I'm sure confronting her and asking for an explanation will be entertaining.
>>37597539I wonder if she would have a different-looking, glowing skull on her butt?
>>37597728A black hole is pretty much a star's skull, right?
>>37597763Accretion disc and/or a plasma jet display on her butt?
>>37597655>Aria is a half Gem lord.HahahahahaWe need to give her shiny gems
>>37597655>half Gem Lordthis is because of her stash of pretty rocks, isn't it. That's a weird thing to get a Half-Lord evo for.
>>37597789>We need to give her shiny gemsOh boy she's going to get SO FLUSTERED when she'll think we found out about her collection.This is the plan we should definitely remember.
>>37597846And next evening Aria is going to take her revenge by gifting us a bear. Or a pile of skulls. I'd say bear skulls, but that would take some time to gather.
>>37597655>half gem lordSo she's finally embracing glam?
>>37597827She spends a significant amount of time hunting down gems and the like- One character from the LN winds up an earth lord because they like mining a lot. >>37597886No 80's hair in my quest, anon.>>37597784Sara will not be acquiring world ending concentrations of matter on her butt.
>>37597938>no 80s hairWell, she IS only half gem lord after all.
>>37597763>>37597784So the skull would have either been glowing, or vantablack and not reflect any light.That sounds kind of cool...
>>37597938Chances that Aria chases Sara around, asking about the shiny stones on her shell?
>>37597938>She spends a significant amount of time hunting down gems and the like-Where does she hide her loot?
>>37597938>No 80's hair in my quest, anon.fucking dropped just kidding, i love your quest, dude
>>37598127Maybe some cautious questions about whether or not she likes gems.Aria isn't going to try and pull bits of her sister off.>>37598244She keeps a small bag of then on her person.She doesn't show it off.>>37598270I'm sorry I can't fulfill your dream of becoming an Arachne Hair Metal star, Anon. Perhaps someday.
>>37598394>Aria isn't going to try and pull bits of her sister off.Well yeah, but it would be something for Lyra to tease both of them with.Of course, Aria might start asking Sara to make her some of those gems, just because.
>>37598394So, we're keeping the stockings.Right?
>>37598908Stockings, lacy spider-panties, and nothing else
>>37598933Sadly, now that we have a few pairs of spider panties, we no longer have to worry about dress malfunctions as we grow older.
>>37598967YOu think wearing all-lace panties means we have less to fear from a wardrobe malfunction?
>>37598967How do the spider panties even work?
am i the only one who would love to read some lewds between a certain giant horned spider and her rough looking elf adventurer ? with lots of lingerie and loving
>>37599062There were numerous panties!
>>37599075Probably side tie?>>37599135Are you talking about Mom and Dad or are we somehow hooking up one of our sisters with Lann?
>>37599255 mom and dad, of course
>>37599324How long do you think it takes her to work herself up to it? She gets so embarrassed about lewd things.
>>37599387She probably made love to Dad first in a pitch black dungeon, since she was so embarrassed.
>>37599387 i bet if he gives her some coffee... or maybe she'd use her silk to blindfold him because it's too embarrassing
>>37599441>>37599449Unless she demands to wear the blindfold. Probably wants to be kissed, held tight, etc. She seems super romantic, alternating between pushing away and pulling close.
>>37599588>>37599449>>37599441She's only super shy about her kids learning about these things. Though I like the idea of dad leading. Now I am done with this converation.
>>37599636Too bad.Nin using her own silk for bondage with lyra when? I fucking love the idea of bondage with someone more than strong enough to tear the ropes, awkwardly trying to hold the position and not break them.
>>37599324>>37599135>rough lookingI believe that was the point of confusion. I admit 'rough' is not an adjective that comes to mind regarding elf-dad. More so Lann.
>>37599939I keep forgetting that dad is tall, gangly, and scruffy.He is like the antithesis of 'elf mage'
>>37600178He's also (slightly) bearded. Such a weird looking elf.
