>>38615629>AToWWEEEE>Just as I leave to sleepBOOOO
I am Elvira “Silver Eyes” of House Alumandra, former Cryptwalker and leader of all our knowledge seekers. Former is important here, for I’ve long been seen more as a nuisance to be endured than a leader to be respected, and over the years, my station declined to match. Of course today, such concerns are trifling, the old Cabal having assembled almost in full strength. Almost, because - as expected - Dovana has remained unreachable and while the recent destruction of Sparkwire lines did not significantly incapacitate our line to the North until yesterday, Cherise seemed unwilling to travel this far for what we’d thought would be naught but a routine meeting. “I’m sending you my daughter instead; I’m suuure you’ll have looooots of fun with her ヽ(｀○´)/”. I rub my temples remembering the transcribed sheaf of paper. Knowing that woman she most certainly harassed the station attendants into writing down exactly the amount of letters she wanted and paid premium just to get that face in there. It comes at no surprise you forgot to mention the girl’s name either; She always had this thing with forgetting such details. I should see who we got from the north this time.“Lady Witch, your refreshments”. My Descendant’s voice softly pulls me back to the present and I feel myself smile as Kyra lays out the tonight’s treats for us. By the goddess, she’s as gorgeous as she was a decade ago, the luxuriant tresses of her wavy chestnut hair in stark contrast to her creamy skin and close fitting - if still appropriately modest - white dress that shows the curvature of her body in all the right ways as she bends down to pour for Ekatarina, the blonde War Oracle accepting with the curt politeness so typical of her. Did she pick up on tha-- no, she wouldn’t read my mind, not like that.<1/6?>
Waaaaait a minute is this that gay witch who married the commoner?
>>38615781>1/6Well I really gotta go sleep within the next 20 minutes, so I guess I'll just miss the vote. Good to see another thread though!> ヽ(｀○´)/Pls
I avert my eyes and look into my silvered tea cup hastily, cursing myself for the impropriety. My own rather squarish face - never more than just “comely” even in the best of cases - is in stark contrast to her heart-shaped one, and even beyond that it seems strange we’d ever fit together.For a while we just sit around chatting idly, Kyra pouring for herself after I’ve taken the first three sips of my own tea, her adherence to propriety as unflinching as always.A soft cough draws my gaze towards Noreen whose eyes flit between Kyra and the door before she raises her left eyebrow in question. I just roll my eyes and give a soft shake my my head in return. She’s staying, and I’m not going to hear another round of argument about “Witch business staying witch business” when all these words amount to is them just being unnerved by things things or people that are /different/ from themselves. Something in my look seems to have had the intended effect, because she sighs into her cup and gives the most imperceptible of shrugs.“Alas, I am forced to cut short these pleasantries and direct our attentions towards the true subject of this evening. As many of you might know, The Weave has lately grown erratic, fate and chance appearing to be increasingly aberrant and malleable at least by the standards of this age…” Our convocation stretches long past what I had planned, the women’s initial concern soon giving way to hushed debate and burning curiosity, their minds beginning to mull over the possibilities like so many well-oiled calculators. Of course, Ekaterina is once more the exception and it takes a lot to keep her from roping us all into one of her divination rituals. I suppose it’s to be expected; Nobody has seen as much as she has, and even fewer would honestly want to.But then, science would never be complete without the voice of disagreement, right?<2/5?>>>38615734((Worry not, childe, for tho shalt not miss a lot, such is my promise, my oath and obligation))
Waaaaait a second minute aren't they in the dining hall right now?Maria got fucked up pretty bad then.>>38615913>Witches using emojis
I am…Well, that is a good question.I’m whiteness.Emptiness.Nothing.I’m not even sure who *I* is. Is it someone I used to know? What is “know”? What does that word mean? What “is”? What are “words”, and why do “I” even “know” what “words” are? Huh… maybe that isn’t the “question” though. Maybe “I” should just not think about it too much and work with what I have. Right. So there’s nothing there. Good. Or maybe not so good, I’m not that far yet. UUgh, why is everything shaking? I’m trying to understand what things are, dammit, YOU’RE NOT HELPING!!“Lady Maria… Lady Maria!” Hrmmm. I knew that person. Back when I knew what knowing was, but that’s beside the point isn’t it?Huh. Looks like my… what were they called. Oh! Yes. “Eyes”. Looks like my “eyes” are open and looking onto a “face”. Funny word that, but I think it works. I mean, if it looks like a face, you could just as well call it a face. Face. Face. Facefaceface~ I giggle (that’s a “sound” I can make it seems?) and the face becomes all odd as it dances in front of me.“Lady Maria, do you understand me?” Hm. Do I? I think I understand what she is saying, but do I understand /her/? Hm. I nod. That seems to make her a bit more calm, and hey, I think I know what thinking is now. Pretty good progress, me!! Right. “I” is a thing. Nice. So this “I” seems to be sitting and in front of it is someone else, because faces don’t just fly around the place like that. Good, that’s nice too.“By mine blood and word I free thee from confusion that thou mayest stand before me free of doubt unchained by fear--” the face speaks something, and suddenly--<Stress Level: 35% (Dragon’s Seal)>I am Maria of House Antioch and, right now, more than a little confused. My friend - cause that’s what she is - Eriadne looks at me from way too lose, fingers pressed to my temples as her eyes seem to have taken on a glow of their own.<3/5>>>38615942((Cherise is a /weird/ person. Even people who like her say so. Even/especially)).
This is all way too strange."I... think I'm fine now, Eriadne". The girl just scowls at me.“No, really, I’m fine now”. I nod, but stop as the room begins to spin around me way too fast. Bad idea, really bad idea, me. Don’t shake your head around when the world refuses to stay stable.“Lady Maria, you do not look /fine/ to me”.“But I feel fine!” Ugh, she’s worrying way too much over someone like me. She really shouldn’t even be made to bother this much. There are so many people who would deserve being worried over more than me. This isn't how it’s supposed to work. I’m supposed to protect her, not the other way round. Uuugh, why does this always happen all the time?! Did The Way choose to test me?! “If feelings were all that mattered we would not be having this conversation, Lady Maria”. Eriadne reaches around my neck and moves to-- WHAT?! NO!! For a few seconds I’m just way too stunned at what Eriadne just did, my /other/ self screaming at me without sound as my body begins to do all kinds of crazy things. LET ME DOWN, LET ME DOOOOOWN!! Just let her Ask to walk on my own. Ask her to bring me to [who?] Other<4/4>((I'll have to leave for a while now, will answer questions or concerns as circumstances allow))
>>38615884>Waaaaait a minute is this that gay witch who married the commoner?Looks like it. And apparently she enjoys commoner butt way too much.
>>38616095>[X] Just let her>>38616147>Not liking superior dragon butt.This witch is a disappointment.
>>38616095> Just let her>For a few seconds I’m just way too stunned at what Eriadne just didWhat did she do?
>>38616095 LET ME DOWN, LET ME DOOOOOWN!! OtherRant about how this isn't right, we're supposed to protect her, and that we don't deserve being worried about.
>>38616275I'm pretty sure she's picked us up and intends to carry us back to our room.
>>38616275>What did she do?Ohimesama-dakko.
>>38616320if she does, when she lays us down we have to totally pull her into bed with us 'accidentally'
>>38616356I thinking she just may not trust us on the top bunk tonight or something.>body begins to do all kinds of crazy things.Somebody is all embarrassed and excited.
>>38616347In English please?
It's interesting that even after a decade of marriage Elvira considers ogling her waifu strange. >>38616382Princess carry.
>>38616422>It's interesting that even after a decade of marriage Elvira considers ogling her waifu strange. It wouldn't be proper, especially not in public. Note how she called her Ascendant "Lady Witch" too.
>>38616620Well yeah it is her title.When a girl marries a lord they don't stop calling them "my lord" at least in public.
>>38616620but as soon as they are in private together ho boy do they get lewd fast
>>38615781>I am Elvira “Silver Eyes” of House Alumandra, former Cryptwalker and leader of all our knowledge seekers.

Can I post? Test.
>>38616376I don't even think Maria could manage to climb the ladder into her bunk right now.>>38616299So just let her do it anyway?
>>38616907Or witches just don't like human filth.
>>38616095> Just let herDon't die from embarrassment or anything Maria
>>38616907>Ten bux say it's cultural homophobia.I read it as more to do with how close she is to her commoner/non-witch Descendant than homophobia. If witches want to keep Witch Stuff exclusively between witches, then they aren't going to want to put up with Silvereyes McOglespeasantbutt who insists that her human descendant listens in on everything.Though I'm sure her being homosexual probably makes it easier to justify ignoring her and leaving her out of discussions than it would be otherwise.
[X] Just let herThat's the third time today Maria's gotten brain-blasted by some kind of extradimensional entity.
>>38617511>Silvereyes McOglespeasantbuttThis will one day be Eriadne's nickname.I swear it.
>>38617609But Maria's not a commoner anymore.
>>38617609Nah, she's be Sawmouth McGuardfondler.
>>38616095> Just let herMaria would try to complain about how improper it is to force Eriadne to worry and exert herself like this, of course, but I doubt she really has the energy to do anything else but let it be.
>>38617771She's still got the commoner aura.You know, that plain girl existence.
>>38617927I think the only aura Maria radiates is sperg. Or Killing Intent, but that's only when she's getting bullied by Eva.
Ah yes, the Hexerzone again.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gFnCwVqbWs
>>38618426Maria *is* lucky enough to be a totally awkward spaz and just seem distant and melancholy from the outside.
>>38617511>>38617511Can.I just say that while it's a nice gesture it's also kind of obsessive and needlessly stubborn to.insist on something like that?
>>38624351Some people have their lines in the sand that they refuse to budge on. We also don't know enough about this girl to know WHY it's such a big deal for her Descendant to always be at her side. For all we know, there's some major significance there that may have something to do with her fall from the graces of her peers.
>>38616095>[x] LET ME DOWN, LET ME DOOOOOWN!!Panicu!
>>38616095 Just let her
>>35246517>>38615781> She was my mother's closest friend. The one who taught her how to negotiate with the Beyond yet always seemed a few steps ahead. They used to do everything together before mother settled I think, though even after she used to show up from time to time. Wonder what happened to her. Aunt Dovana, haha. Good ti-- anyway, why?"Right, everyone probably already caught onto this, but apparently sensing teacher, Eva's mom and the person AKAZU's priest wanted to see were all friends at some point.
>>38624537>Eva's mum uses emojisShe must be so ashamed.
>>38624551Maybe she became so motherly due to her mom being so childish
>>38624551Eva learned crafting from.her. Mad scientist turbonerd confirmed.> Eva tries to be mature because her mother just isn'tWell shit.
>>38624580That actually makes a lot of sense.
>>38624596Guess we know why Eva is so good with lolis now. She probably got all the responsible jobs around the house.
>The Weave has lately grown erratic, fate and chance appearing to be increasingly aberrant and malleable at least by the standards of this age…” I wonder if this is Maria since she has the insane connection to fate and all.>>38624712Well somebody has to keep things running while her mum experiments.
>>38624729Maybe. Here's a thing>>34488247>>34488247> I can feel her now. Feel her pull across the halls of this place. Oh, I won't end her, that would go against the Weave, but I'll make her face her past sins.
>>38624836Possibly but then Maria doesn't have a "Mask of faceless cheer" She masks very little expression at all and hasn't really been all that happy while at Mooncrest just stressed and depressed.But what we do know is:a) Maria has a huge level of variance between timelines jumping from LG paladin or CE murder.b)Eriadne is tied to Maria closely by fate (Why they became friends so quickly) and gets a similar but lesser level of change. (Best friends, lovers, mortal foes, Allies of evil, rapist and victim etc.)c)Timelines have been removed by the universe due to Maria's fate in them. (Rape!TL and Mind destruction!TL)d) She normally has a very large influence on the world. (Leader of armies, Enforcer of tyranny etc.)
>>38624912>Leader of armies, Enforcer of tyrannyClearly she needs a title for this timeline too. Eater of cookies? Queen of snuggles? Protector of (very short) justice?
>>38625004No idea but I would prefer to avoid joining the military and going to war in this timeline.Our Maria is much more non-violent and pacifistic than most of the others we've learned about.
>>38624912No, I'm pretty sure she really was talking about Helena there. She was comparatively "positive" towards Maria whenever they met which wouldn't be the case if there was some spooky paranormal fate sense shit going on. I quoted it because it mentions the Weave.>>38625032> tfw "pacifistic" in Maria's case still means knowing 50 ways of murdering bitches on top of your head and that's only with her bare hands
>>38625108> tfw "pacifistic" in Maria's case still means knowing 50 ways of murdering bitches on top of your head and that's only with her bare handsWell yeah she was training to become a god.She just doesn't like hurt or killing people.She even spared the people who have almost murdered her in the past.>No, I'm pretty sure she really was talking about Helena there.That's pretty likely then. Being followers of fundamentally opposed gods would make them think of each other as sinners as well.
>>38625108>> tfw "pacifistic" in Maria's case still means knowing 50 ways of murdering bitches on top of your head AToW isn't a hard lefty's strawman universe so knowing how to kill isn't the same as being an unapologetic killer. /bait
>>38625154AToW just doesn't fit into modern political ideas or morality at all.
>>38625308That's probably part of the reason I like it.
>>38626147It really is one of the best parts.Gotta love that tasty underage loving.
Ooh right. Didn't announce, my bad. Closing, counting, writing, please wait warmly for the things to come!
>>38627268How warmly? Should I put the heater on?
>>38627888Haaah, prosimay. A bit ticked off by the tech again buuuut it's all saved so we should be back on track in a lil while.
>>38629076No worries, Hex. I'm pretty cozy.
>>38626167WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEIR EVERYTHING
by the way hex, how are human rights regulated?> inb4 read the pastebin
>>38630848Anon pls. Not here.
>>38624729>>38624729>>38624712>>38624580>>38615913>>38615942We really gotta meet her. She seems cute.
>>38630848>human rights regulated?Like how they are managed?Well the rights of the person are protected by the government and the religions in the area.Infringing on another person's rights generally results in harsh punishment up to death and removal of your status as a person.
>>38630848Well >>38632228 has some good points.Human rights per se don't really exist because being human isn't considered something that really entitles a being to anything. Rather, they're people's rights since, as the rationale goes, you are born human but become a person through your behaviour and virtue. Thus follows that the idea of natural, inalienable rights is, well, an alien one. All rights come from either divine edict or/and the way you act in relation to society. Furthermore it has to be noted that the High Nobility isn't human to begin with which would make the concept a little hard to maintain under these circumstances. Clerics aren't either but that's a bit different..As for rights, the right to property, freedom of religious practice and bodily integrity are generally considered very important, though from time to time the second one is being infringed upon - to the chagrin of the victims - with comparatively little recourse, though that is fairly rare.On the flipside, beings that have lost their personhood have a fairly short list of rights which essentially is the same as the rules regulating excess animal cruelty.I hope this was both informative and entertaining. Writing resumes.
>>38632484Jotting down notes.Yes, the image title is what the image says.
>>38632546What you gonna do with the notes, XS?
>>38632546thats not a good sign....>>38632591probably destroy everything we hold dear in this quest
>>38632484But if your worth as a human is purely dependent on your actions and relations, won't that encourage nepotism INCREDIBLY hard? And how does this work with what you'd maybe call benign outsiders, someone like a nice hobo or a hermit or the like?Also since 'the right to property, freedom of religious practice and bodily integrity' are basically human rights, I assume they only count for people who demonstrate worth?
>>38632653I think he means more ethical behaviour than productivity.
https://archive.moe/tg/thread/38626918/#38626918_158> A girl gets stuck in her own head on the way to magic school. Features many cute girls for you to drool over. Should finish this day sometime in the next decade. Oh spooky.
>>38632687But without anyone to vouch for your behavior (hermit most obviously) how does that work?
>>38632814Probably same way we don't just arrest hobos on a whim.
>>38632835...because of human rights?Besides, I'm hardly worried about them getting in trouble with the law as much as random assholes.
>>38632546Oh? Waiting warmly for the things to come.>>38632653Do not take this too literally, in practice this essentially is used majorly as a way to enforce compliance with the law and punish behaviour deemed asocial such as disruption of public peace through terrrorism or gross violantions of contracts. The law goddess Sharsee is quite adamant about rules being followed and while she's not active in all forms of government she does influence the thinking quzite a bit.
>>38632943>Besides, I'm hardly worried about them getting in trouble with the law as much as random assholes.You mean random assholes doing shit to them and getting away unscathed?
>>38633019>Do not take this too literally, in practice this essentially is used majorly as a way to enforce compliance with the law and punish behaviour deemed asocial such as disruption of public peace through terrrorism or gross violantions of contracts. The law goddess Sharsee is quite adamant about rules being followed and while she's not active in all forms of government she does influence the thinking quzite a bit.That makes sense. It's fucked up, but it makes sense.
>>38633139You do realize that human rights means fuckall to the kind of people who go and beat the shit out of bums for shits and giggles, right?
>>38633019>asocialYou mean antisocial?
>>38633940You're absolutely correct, forgive the germanisme.
Rebel scum please leave
Really, is there any reason Lady Athra WOULDN'T be the best goddess?!
>>38647399Best deity is All-Mother followed by Yulemai and AKAZU.
>>38647407Don't argue with the Helena, you monster. You'll make her fall.
>>38647761I don't think any cleric is capable of falling out of favor with their deity, largely because a part of their deity lives within them. The psychological implications of this are incredibly unpleasant for most of /tg/ to contemplate.
>>38647873>The psychological implications of this are incredibly unpleasant for most of /tg/ to contemplate.Explain.
>>38647873No? We know they can fall, almost all witch clerics do sooner or later. ... And yes, that does have some unpleasant implications now that we know they have biological changes too.
>>38647873Mild (?) spoilers ahead.>largely because a part of their deity lives within them.Yes, but It's not a mind control thing, not quite. >I don't think any cleric is capable of falling out of favor with their deity,Think of the connection as less like an umbilical cord to be severed and more of a frequency. The connection of a cleric to their deity is a two-way street. A Ask Liliana if you wanna know more. /meta
>>38647973Why does Liliana know more about it than Helena?
>>38647981Minds are her thing. Also Maria has enough trouble processing anything Helena says as it is.I mean, I guess you could also ask RHP if you wanted or even poke around Alumandra's HQ; At least some witches will most likely have poked around to find out what makes Clerics tick.
>>38648019I'd love to ask RHP if Maria was on good enough terms with her. But that's looking increasingly unlikely.
>>38648099Pffft, we can just walk over and ask her! Aggressive friendship!
>>38648123Best take Eva then. Unlike other spoiled children she's got the means to seriously hurt those she doesn't like.
>>38648123That's OOC for Maria though. Maybe if we had a Sora or Eva or Liliana perspective switch. Someone less jumpy.
> "Just like, that you do things to people… you know… those things". I forget focusing for a second and my face instantly burns like fire. Oh Athra no! Surprisingly, that only makes Lilianna widen her eyes for a second. She looks almost offended instead of amused, then just shakes her head, smile returning a little weaker but it still feels true though her mood seems a little down for once. "No, Helena. Y'know, it's only allowed if the ohter likes it and ya woulda felt real bad afterwards so ya… not something we do… you believe me, right?">ya woulda felt real bad afterwardsDid... did Liliana check if Helena would enjoy it with Yulemai powers? Does she do that often if so?

> "Your honor, one cannot believe in a moderate approach in the face of an all-consuming fire.". -- Holy Knight Reona LaFontaine, Law Cleric of Sharsee when tried in front of a worldy court for a long list of purges following the blinding of the Free Trader Adrian Lamere. Whoa holy shit. Isn't this that trader guy Maria references all the time? SOMEONE got some serious revenge for that shit. Does Maria know about this?Or do I have the characters confused, because this went entirely without comment when it was posted.
>>38648355No yeah, that's him.She mentioned this guy too back when Lilliana asked her about Order or Happiness
>>38648355>>38648378>Whoa holy shit. Isn't this that trader guy Maria references all the time? SOMEONE got some serious revenge for that shit. Does Maria know about this?Your comment made me go on a short archive dive, and it looks likely.> Oh for the sake of everything just good and holy, it's your room, me. It's not exactly like you're a servant girl and she's really not that sick. Learn. To. Relax. Seriously, this is worse than that one time you thought taking on Skullface Gang with just yourself, the trader Lamere and ten others would be a good idea. That was probably one of the few times Pa was genuinely mad. I shudder, trying to banish the memory. > This is just like taking care of the Trader Lamere, though Eriadne doesn't have quite as elegant a beard. The thought of Eriadne wearing the olive-skinned man's carefully-trimmed moustache almost makes me drop the wrap, but I just compose myself in time. At least Eriadne has both her eyes still. >My hair stands on end as I think back on the day the Holy Knight LaFontaine's trial was declared after she purged several nearby villages for harbouring criminals. Sure, they had blinded the Trader Lamere a few months before, but while he was probably the best friend I had at the time I wouldn't have wished what she did on them. >"So, uhm…", I begin, shooting Eriadne yet another glance. She regards me questioningly, eyes shifting between various shades of blue, green and grey like the comings and goings of the tide. Or at least I think so; I've not quite seen the sea yet, but if what the Trader Lamere said was true, that's probably what it would look like. Err. Less staring, more talking. It might really help not seeming quite so lost, me!
Holy fucking shit.
>>38648385Maria's best friend was an "olive-skinned man".I'm not sure which side is more pathetic here.
>>38648467> not wanting to be an italian trader with a glorious moustache and a tiny kung fu sperg tomboy friendAnon, we need to talk about your tastes.
>>38648474They should have friends their own age!Then Maria would be less messed up socially.
>>38648524Don't be ridiculous. Maria would be messed up socially no matter what. It's her fate to be brought into bloom by Eridane's concern when she nearly gets herself killed.
>>38648385Guess she's not +that+ gay then. Just pretty gay.
>>38649367What? I don't get it.
>>38649448She seems very friendly and kind of appreciative towards his appearance.
>>38649508I guess maybe? I was imagining him more as having one of those really impressive and well-groomed mustache/beard combos, since that was the only trait of his she actually commented on.
>>38649367I wouldn't say that she did see the guy as her big brother almost.
[X] And On This Day The Prophet Said To The Gathered Masses: There is strenght in service and power in submission, for such is the law of this world. Don’t let thy weakness discourage you nor your thy heart say to itself “My hand is feeble and thus my being lacks worth”. For I say unto you this day: Strong are those whose power shan’t be wasted on their pride.All of me just wants to kick and scream and make Eriadne put me down. This isn’t right. None of this is right and she should just stop pretending that it’s okay for her to do this. But then, it would probably look really bad if I just kind of fell on my face suddenly like that. That’s just really the kind of risk I don’t want to make, not when she is already wasting this much effort on my for no good reason at all!!Swish. Siwsh. Swish.‘Let me down!’‘This isn’t something you should do!’‘Please. Just let me go!’‘Come on, you’re wasting your time!!’‘I can walk by myself. Hey, are you listening?’‘This just really totally is not right come on now come oooon!!!’I blink and swallow hard as it dawns on me that none of the things I just said ever passed my lips. By all the saints and prophets, just what’s wrong with me? She just has to understand that this is completely different from how things should work at all!Swish. Swish. Swish. Eriadne’s skirts rustle as she carries me out the dining hall, through the endlessly winding corridors and up steep steps that seem to go on forever.>Presence. Awareness.

>>38650558>I blink and swallow hard as it dawns on me that none of the things I just said ever passed my lips.So does Maria really want to be carried or is she still a bit broken?Will she use the latter as an excuse against the former?

>>38650558Eri-carry must be comfy as hell.
>>38650774She's definitely broken in a few ways. This does not make her either a bad person, nor any less of a good girl in any wayAlso, I think she is currently suffering from some damage, she doesn't normally nearly pass out upon standing - her will is usually stronger than that.
>>38650858We didn't even pass out. Just... shut down, for a bit. Apparently we were looking at Eri the entire time blankly without getting what things are.
>>38650897I was referring to the headshake that shook the universe, actually.
inb4 next update in three days.
>>38651737No way, Hex knows better than to hold out on us that long when cuteness is on the line.
“--what happened to this one?”“It is… difficult to say”.I try to open my eyes to see who’s talking, but my lids seem to have a will of their own. I can only listen, the soft, soft blanket around my thoughts growing thicker every moment. We seem to have stopped though. “I expect you to take good care of this one. I won’t stand seeing her cut from the Weave like that. Hers is not such a short destiny and she was most entertaining so far”.“Be assured, she is important to me as well. You have my word… may I inquire what your name was?”“Thanyreia , heir to the Blackheart and chosen of the Evenstar, vessel of Koshari’s grace. Who might you be?”“Eriadne ben Tharek of House Antioch. Now, if you may excuse me, but my… friend here really needs her sleep”.“But of course. May the shadow of death pass thee by tonight and mayest the infinite void deliver upon you naught but peace”. I can feel Eriadne bob her head.“Radiance and truth be upon you as well, may thy path be never lead you astray”. The other girl just laughs in a way that is at once sort of cute and really, really not right at all.“Be assured, my truth is the truth of all! Good night!” She seems to have left, because there is a quickly fading echo of small steps in the distance and Eriadne starts to move again.“Lady Maria, are you awake?”‘Sure. She’s really strange that one, but just now she seemed kind of friendly’. Uhm. I’m not sure I just said that.“It is quite alright, do not overexert yourself”. Eriadne’s tone seems, what, caring. Haha, good one! Well I guess it would be a bother if I just collapsed like that and she had to explain what happened. A-and besides, maybe she even pities me a little.“Whom do you pity, Lady Maria?” Aaah, damn this mouth of mine. 2/4
“Hrmmm? Mfeawy mwyself… fwood nod foo shish, efiawne… fwan walkf mwyeshelf”. If only thinking were as easy as speaking sometimes aaaagh! I must sound like a complete drunk. By the saints I’m really terrible at this.“You most certainly can not ‘walkf’ on your own, Lady Maria. I shan’t hear no more of this. Am I understood?” I try to nod but floating inside a soft nothing like this it’s hard to tell if I did anything at all. For a while we’re silent, but just as sleep is about to pull me back I jerk awake, trying to find out what just happe-- again. The sound of a boot striking wood. Aahg, too loud!! Everything shakes and I realize the person making the noise might be the person carrying me. Eriadne, yes, that’s righ-- peng! Peng! Peng!The door opens and there’s a squeak of surprise“Whathappenedtohereriadneisheokaycanilookheroveriwassoworriedthegirlwou--” “Easy, Helena. I am not certain what happened, but I would appreciate if you could apply your skills. I was, unfortunately, only capable of helping her in a little way. My kind is not well-suited to this type of work, therefore I ask you to aid us in whichever way you can”. “Sure, sure! Put her onto my bed and I’ll be there riiiight away okay?!!” My eyes finally manage to open far enough to see Helena light the candles around the room before rummaging around in her pack. How did she even carry this thing; It must be three times as heavy as herself. Well, I’m not one to talk, I guess.“You do have a way of ending up in beds other than your own Lady Maria”. Uugh, I guess she’s still mad at me over that. Not good but what am I gonna do now?! Eriadne puts me down onto the bottom bunk of the bed and pulls the blanket over me all the way up to the neck.“Thanks Eriadne that’s just perfect!!” Helena steps up to me and begins to wave bundles of herbs in front of my face. Hey, I’m not a cat! Ah but it probably all makes sense kind of.3/?
>>38651862>“You most certainly can not ‘walkf’ on your own, Lady Maria.Pffff!
>>38651826>“Thanyreia , heir to the Blackheart and chosen of the Evenstar, vessel of Koshari’s grace. Who might you be?”So chuuni it HURTS.
>>38651826>“I expect you to take good care of this one. I won’t stand seeing her cut from the Weave like that. Hers is not such a short destiny and she was most entertaining so far”.Maria is a good girl deserving of nothing bad, not your entertainment!Beyond that; damn Maria, if you you weren't ill that mealy-mouthed blabbering would have been hilarious.
>>38651826>“Thanyreia , heir to the Blackheart and chosen of the Evenstar, vessel of Koshari’s grace.And RHP has a name.Finally.
>>38651826>Be assured, she is important to me as well.Oh gosh, we're important to Eri.
>>38652039It makes me wonder what she was going to say before she switched it to "friend".
>>38652039Don't worry anon, it was probably Maria hallucinating it. Nobody could treasure such a useless girl.
It's sort of hilarious that everyone seems ignorant of everyone else's relation to Than and Helena and theirs to each other.CONVERGENCE, ho!
“Well well, looks like she’s just kind of mixed up. Like her soul’s a bit cracked, but it’s going to heal pretty good really!!” Helena chirps, and I just kind of wonder how someone can sound both concerned and really untroubled at the same time. It’s honestly more than a little disturbing, but that might just be because I’m so weak right now.“You have my thanks, Helena. Could you explain this in some more detail, mayhaps?” Wow Eriadne, you really can handle such things super well.“Nu-uh, not so good with htat mind stuff. Liliana might get it better maybe probably but I don’t know for sure!!” Isn’t a mind just part of the body, Helena? Seems like a strange line to draw. Well I’m not too good at these things.“Where might she be, then?”“Uuuh, no idea really. She and Senra went outside to watch the stars I think and I was tired so Senra said I should go to bed!!” Hey Evangelyne, shouldn’t you be taking care of both of them the same way? IT seems unfair to send one to bed and just walk around aside past curfew. Hm, do they have a curfew here? See, now here are the important things to worry about and I DON’T KNOW THEM. Really, how could I forget this easily?“Watch the stars, Helena?” Eriadne’s voice sounds slightly peeved. Hey, what’s wrong with watching the stars? It’s not like they could know it could come to this!!“That’s what she said yes. Is that bad?!” Eriadne just sighs, and there’s the scraping of wood on wood. The chair? Hmm, probably. Wait, why would she “Well, I suppose not--” I can’t hear what else they say, because at last the day is finally claiming his dues as I sink into the soft embrace of sleep once more.4/5
---Something touches my skin and I I feel the rush of readiness swirl down my neck and arms.=The smell of trees. The feeling of a raincloud in the distance. The soft sound of leaves dancing in the wind=Whaa-“Uhm. Maria, aahh” Helena? Normally she doesn’t seem that hesistant.“Yes, Helena?”“l well. Youknowsenraisn’tbackyetand… could I sleep here like with you and stuff?”Well, now *that*’s not quite what I expected....what? NO! Uhm… Sorry... Do you kick in your sleep? Yes, sure!! Other
>>38652646> Yes, sure!!Might as well before we forget her again.
>>38652646>[x] Do you kick in your sleep?
Are you thinking what I think Eriadne is thinking right now?>>38652646[X] Do you kick in your sleep?We're not some cuddleslut.
>>38652646>[x] Other>I guess that would be alright.>Do you kick in your sleep?
>>38652646>[X] Uhm… Sorry...We really should apologise for scaring her and hurting her.
>>38652646>>38652717Backing!>>38652608>tfw Maria can't watch the stars with Eri now>tfw Eva and Liliana get to watch the stars together firstO-oh well.If that was anyone but Eva and Liliana that'd be mighty suspicious by the way.
>>38652716>Are you thinking what I think Eriadne is thinking right now?Probably some mad jealousy.
>>38652753>If that was anyone but Eva and Liliana that'd be mighty suspicious by the way.How does this arrangement make it less suspicious?>>38652716>Are you thinking what I think Eriadne is thinking right now?...yes.
>>38652798>How does this arrangement make it less suspicious?Despite the harem joke, I wouldn't really expect it from Eva. I mean, I don't mind being wrong there but I'll stay skeptical for now. I bet it's just Hex trying to make us think that way!
>>38652837Yes, but> LilianaIf she felt her Senra wanted she'd probably...
>>38652646>[x] ...is she scared of sleeping alone?I'll blame the lack of tact on Maria feeling under the weather, yeah!
>>38652608>Isn’t a mind just part of the body, Helena?And so the clash of ideology slowly begins.
>>38652646At least she can speak now.
>>38652307Care to explain?
>>38652646>[x] Do you kick in your sleep?>[x] if not, alright...
>>38653047I mean that Helena doesn't know we met Than, Than doesn't know Helena's of our cabal and Maria doesn't know the two have beef.
>>38652646[X] Uhm… Sorry...[X] Other:"Don't worry, I can protect you."
>>38653094>“Whathappenedtohereriadneisheokaycanilookherover~i~was~so~worried~the~girl~wou--”What girl would do what to Maria, is my question. I think Than was actually recommended by Helena, or that Helena thought Sanya would do somethign to Maria....
>>38653175>I think Than was actually recommended by HelenaWhat? Did you miss the part where they almost killed one another?>or that Helena thought Sanya would do somethign to Maria....Probably that. I suspect her mojo didn't read right.
>>38652646>still not backPls Hex, think of the implications!
>>38653244>Pls Hex, think of the implications!((Evangelyne probably has terrible sense of orientation and got them both lost trying to find Liliana's room. What a clumsy Senra!!))Closing, Counting, Writing. Please Wait Warmly.
>>38653300I'm side-eyeing your explanation hard, Hex.Waiting warmly!
>>38653300To be fair, Liliana needed her guidance while Helena was safe in our room. And sometimes Helena can't fulfill Senra's needs either! Perfectly natural.
>>38653300Maria will be fine, r-right?!
>>38653917No she's broken forever, can't even be fix.There's no point in anyone having her.
>>38653936We should probably run away tomorrow when we do our rites.We're nothing but an inconvenience.
>>38654004Maria would never abandon her friends, no matter how useless she is. She's a scatterbrained klutz, and not very good at being helpful, but she's still the best person to protect them because she is trained to do that well at least.And Eriadne might think something of her. Maria would never betray that kind of trust, on purpose, because it would be wrong to do so.
>>38654195What do you think of Silvereyes McPeasantogler?
>>38654226I think all things are cyclical and that Convergence is not Coincidence.
>>38654455In context meaning?
>>38654455Such is indeed the nature of this universe. This XS Has Heard The Call And Listened.Anyways, hopping devices, if my focus ain't playing tricks on me we should have have another one out tonight.
>>38654532I believe in you Hex!
>>38654455>>38654532You two need to get really high together at least once.
>>38654532>>38654532That would be pretty amazing Hex.
>>38654526Meaning I think I discovered a plot point and am not going to jinx it.It's a paralleled life situation - the two relationships and the situations that are happening to the people in those relationships are linked by synchronicity and therefore the subject of Convergence. But, really, In other words, the two dragon-ladies and their peasant lovers paired lives are involved in equally important and entirely different situations that will both have equal and drastic effect on the world; that's what I'm extrapolating from it.
>>38654745I don't think the older witch is a dragonborn actually.The theories about her being Eva's mum's friend is interesting though.Along with that theory about the disturbance in fate being Maria's large cosmic presence. Also the person that designed this Andriod autofill the word shit and using American spellings when it's set to UK English needs to be raped with a barbwire dildo.
>>38652646I mean, it IS her bed, so refusing would be kind of a dick move.
>>38653175Keep in mind that Helena loves to bump souls with people to try and read them. She probably did that to Sanya when Sanya showed up at lunch and got some major Bad Vibes from her.
>>38655299Anon please don't spread such gossip, Helena is not a soul-slut.
>>38655341Too late anon, Liliana revealed Helena's promiscuous ways to us already.
>>38655015She doesn't HAVE to be dragonborn. But the concept is locked in my head for now. I'll need to purge it later.
>>38655408Also Maria isn't a peasant anymore.
>>38655623She was always more lower-middle class than full on peasantry, too.
>>38655673That too.Though she was a lower class than her friends (Except maybe Sora it's unclear) she and her family still had status from being government employees.
>>38655623>>38655673Points noted, but it doesn't stop the conceptual parallel from existing. That's why I mentioned synchronicity and not literal parallels.
>>38655855Yeah, I get what you're talking about.
>>38655855There's definitely some parallels, don't get me wrong, but there's also some significant differences, the most glaring of which is that Peasantbutt isn't a witch. Now if she turns out to be a former guard or something, then we might have something to go on.
>>38656278Every time something mystically significant happens in one of the cut-aways Maria's brain gets hammered into mush. Could be coincidence.
>>38656278Not to mention Eriadne's nickname ks waaaaaay better.
>>38656349Right, sleep deprivation is taking a much much bigger toll. Thank you for the updates, Hexer.
>>38656349Thanyreia herself said that Maria is pretty damn close to the Weave, so it could be everything from seeing parallels to herself to seeing people who will influence her life in ways conventionally unseen or even a combination of the two as Convergence whims it. Finding out exactly HOW Sanya keeps brainfucking us would probably be the best way to find out the ramifications of said brainfuckery, but it's all speculation at this point.My personal theory is that Sanya is completely removed from the Weave, which is why she is constantly forgetting who she is, what she is, and where she is. It's not that she operates in a different reality like Liliana, Helena, and the twins or has come unstuck from time or anything like that, it's that she literally has no Destiny, no threads of Fate in the Weave, and thus is a Nobody, even unto herself. Po-tee-weet, motherfucker.
>>38656765Remember our astral journey? She's ~trapped~ away from the Weave, and we know where.
>>38656765Well as far as I know Sanya doesn't exist on other timelines.
>>38652646 Yes, sure!!
>>38657033If I'm right, she doesn't -exist- at all. The Twins exist but aren't real, but Sanya doesn't even reach that level of nonexistence. She's a hole in the Weave to the point that just interacting with her almost severed Maria's own fate. Basically, Sanya is the Exile from KOTOR 2, except with an even MORE sinister brainfuckery aura.Notice how every time Maria interacts with her, she has to be reminded of the fact that she can do basic things like think, talk, laugh, or just plain -exist-.
This speculah just became really fucking spooky. Like SQ-tier spooky.>>38655341>Helena is not a soul-slut.Sorry, but she kind of is. Hell she touches other people in their special place before she even knows their name.
>>38655767>(Except maybe Sora it's unclear)Sora is His Eminence The Resplendent God-King's Most Hallowed property. A mere noble cannot compare to being the property of a god. That's why she's so casual vis a vis Eriadne.
>>38656765>>38656349Holy shit...>>38655015>The theories about her being Eva's mum's friend is interesting though.Going by what we know of witch society combined with Elvira being former head of the spoopy division and Dovana being a super spoopy witch herself who taught Eva's mom how to be spoopy... it's likely.inb4 Eva's mom and Elvira had a thing and she left after going straight.
>>38657148>The Twins exist but aren't real,But what are they if not "real"?
>>38660061They're actually knock-off twins, Eva bought them on the black market so she could be sure to have some lolis following her around for her peace of mind, it's tough to be a Senra without them. Of course, she found Helena and Liliana pretty quick so it turns out they weren't needed after all. But her mom's probably pretty well-off so the price for some knock-off twins is no biggie.
>>38660131> the Senra literally begins to suffer withdrawal syndromes akin to severe caffeine addiction when without at least one loli at all timesYou know what, I like this theory.>>38655767>Though she was a lower class than her friends (Except maybe Sora it's unclear) she and her family still had status from being government employees.Isn't Eva's mom some random crafter?
>>38660061Living dreams, self-aware contemplations of whatever caused their homeland to go all wonky, shades a la Nier, take your pick.
>>38660207Think about it, her mom is incredibly irresponsible and childish, Eva has to be the responsible one, probably plan and schedule everything and shit. No wonder she'd feel awkward and lost without someone else to fuss over!
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/125147778882>We'll see.Helena is getting thrown off the bed.
>>38660261>>38624712>>38624596I'm amused people are extrapolating so much just from the message sciencewitch got.
>>38660207She'she's still a witch are about between low and high nobility. Still outside the system like any witch who hasn't joined a noble house but still waaay above a civil servant or a seamstress.
>>38660626It would be even funnier if that wasn't even Eva's mom.
>>38651826>“Be assured, my truth is the truth of all! Good night!” She seems to have left, because there is a quickly fading echo of small steps in the distanceI'm going to imagine RHP running off doing the Naruto run after acting all chuuni and there's nothing she can do to stop me.
>>38624537That's sensing teacher in the opening post? I can't remember any teacher's name other than Vivian being the fighting teach.>checking out buttssasuga feito
Night AToW thread, I'm sure Hex will be ready to update when I wake up!
>>38651826Does RHP sound less chuuni when placed next to Eriadne to anyone else? It's like that stuff is how proper nobles act.
>>38664305I actually thought it was a different, older Koshari.
>>38664305>>38665602Or maybe she actually gets serious when she's doing something more than having blood feuds with fat lolis.
>>38664305Could just be some kind of serious aura dragonborn have.
>>38663206Elvira is noone important. Sensing teach is >>38615781>>38615929>Of course, Ekaterina is once more the exception and it takes a lot to keep her from roping us all into one of her divination rituals.

Did she pick up on tha-- no, she wouldn’t read my mind, not like that.
>>38664305She's formal, but before breakfast she was downright condescending a la "You have the homor to accompany me to my breakfast" and shit.
>>38671836So? Eri when she slipped up was almost that bad. She said something like This one may approach in spells iirc.If she didn't care about Maria and wasn't making an effort she'd be a right bitch too.
>>38671903>If she didn't care about Maria and wasn't making an effort she'd be a right bitch too.kek, probably.>>38662961> Thanyreia Blackheart Evenstar...yep.
>>38671903>If she didn't care about Maria and wasn't making an effort she'd be a right bitch too.Yeah obviously.Maria's pretty much the only person in the cast that really gets along with Eri.She's openly hostile to Eva, Helena is afraid of her, she's annoyed and probably a bit intimidated by Liliana, I'm not sure how she is with Sora and the Twins have still not become actual characters.
It would be awesome if RHP ended up in the same coven as us, but not the same cell. That way we could have sweet meetups like >>38615781 and be rivals and stuff without having to see her all the time.
>>38672017Not really.Remember how covens are responsible for each others fuck up?I don't want to deal with the fallout of her summon a demon or some shit.The current girls are fine for now and it gives us 8 which is the standard size for a coven.Sanya is too much of a plot device to ever become a standard member as well.
Not to mention her and Helena are so ideologically opposed it would likely come down to one or that other and fatty > chuuni.
>>38672009A lot of her difficulty getting along is because she thinks they're bad influences on her precious Maria. It's possible that she'd be less uptight if she didn't have a girl to be all possessive over, and would get along with some of them better.> the Twins have still not become actual characters.If Maria would spend time with them... I bet Liliana would be fascinated by their mind-thing.>>38672037The shit Maria gets up to is more likely to cause trouble for the coven than a properly Eva-disciplined RHP, I think.>for nowBut you're right, we don't need to nor should we decide now.>Sanya is too much of a plot device to ever become a standard member as well.That's not fair. I don't like her now, but writing her off completely before fixing her is silly.>>38672062No shit? That's why I said not in the same cell.
>>38672099>No shit? That's why I said not in the same cell.I don't think there's as much separation between the cells in a coven as you think there is.>to cause trouble for the coven than a properly Eva-disciplined RHP, I think.Even though Maria does get into difficult situations it's never really been an intentional decision rather than an unfortunate event.RHP kind of is a difficult decision.>but writing her off completely before fixing her is silly.I guess but so far we can't even stay in the same room as her for a couple hours without Maria's soul getting punched in the face.
>>38672099>A lot of her difficulty getting along is because she thinks they're bad influences on her precious Maria.I really don't think it is. She respects Maria and gets along with her because Maria has good and sensible morals.That's something Evangelyne would do.>It's possible that she'd be less uptight if she didn't have a girl to be all possessive over, and would get along with some of them betterAgain not really you can tell when we met her that cold and distance if not completely abrasive and standoffish is just her natural state Maria is the exception not the rule.
I missed this, AToW. I missed discussion. I missed the thread just kind of flowing along without bumps. No disrespect towards bumpfag of course.>>38672128>>38672062>>38665720You know what if Helena actually did sin in some way? Her charsheet lists one of her Endowments as Defunct so maybe she was punished. There was also that dream.
>>38672037But Sanya is a lot more interesting than twins or Sora or Eva.
>>38672162>No disrespect towards bumpfag of course.None taken, I try to bump with discussion when it's active but a lot of the time it just sort of dies in the middle of the day.It's the best part of this playerbase.>Her charsheet lists one of her Endowments as Defunct so maybe she was punished. There was also that dreamIt's possible it might be why she's so afraid of falling as well since she's already tasted loss and distance from her god.She's at least way more uptight that Liliana who sees her god as like a big brother or something.>>38672178>Sora or Eva.I think Sora and Eva are plenty interesting,>than twinsI hope they stop being background decorations soon they get ignored harder than Helena and she has a supernatural effect making her ignorable.But the point isn't about being interesting it about how dangerous and unstable she is.
>>38672128>I don't think there's as much separation between the cells in a coven as you think there is.That's probably true. A rival coven is fine too.>RHP kind of is a difficult decision.That's not a problem because everyone in-character agrees right now: It's not happening without some serious character development.Except possibly Eriadne. I got the impression that Thanyreia made a good impression on her.>>38672178I'd much rather hang out with any of those three than uncover whatever boring mystery Sanya is hiding.
>>38672212>She's at least way more uptight that Liliana who sees her god as like a big brother or something.To be fair that might also be the difference in deities themselves. Athra seems solidly in the incomprehensible elder god corner who just happens to be good by the standards of those who believe in her but certainly isn't too approachable on the understanding level. Like maybe the members of the Hindu trimurti or God YHWH.No I don't want to hear THAT line of argument.
>>38672241>boring mystery, let's ignore itThis is how you get WoL aka 'I don't want your plot-hooks, let's just grind forever' levels of QM-spiting.
>>38672257Hexer and AzureEarth run way differently though.
>>38672241>That's not a problem because everyone in-character agrees right now: It's not happening without some serious character development.Right. Expanding the cover to its maximum really isn't the best idea either because it just leaves us more and more people to be responsible for.There's nothing stopping us from working with and interacting with people and witches outside our coven so I personally just want to keep it to the manageable 8 we have now.I really want to avoid turning into some kind of witch Pokemon shit where we add every named witch we can until we max it out.>>38672254Athra is supposedly really friendly and approachable actually like a loving mother.Which is why it's weird that Helena worry so much about disappointing her.All of the weird alien gods probably don't even have clerics like the All mother and AKAZU.
>>38672257I was exaggerating. Her freakout wasn't boring at all and I'd like to see it solved.Just not as much as I want Twins character development.
>>38672280>All of the weird alien gods probably don't even have clerics like the All motherHere is the tweeest: All witches are clerics of the All-Mother.
>>38672304Go away Shyamalan, you can't make an AToW movie.
>>38672304I know you're joking but clerics of the All-Mother are a thing. They don't happen recently because reasons.
>>38672319All just a matter of cash.>>38672323I'm not joking. Remember how Witches aren't human and gain their power through connection to big AM.
>>38672336>I'm not joking. Remember how Witches aren't human and gain their power through connection to big AM.Oh, right. I think I got confused with there not being a cleric strong enough to have a Watchfire recently.

>>38672336It's a different kind of not human though.Clerics are not human because their god has formed a close bond with them and changed their soul to match them.Witches are non-human because the all mother has created a link between them and magic and human can't use magic.Also with he relationship itself becoming a cleric is an act of love and devotion for your god but the All Mother makes witches involuntarily to be what are effectively shock troopers to protect the world from certain threats.Also, Clerics form to fit an ideology and their powers while witches' ideologies from their powers to fit them.
>>38672362Also has to be in 3rd person ruining the vital aspect of being in Maria's perspective and hearing her thoughts.So know she just comes off as a retarded sperg and is pretty unlikeable as a character.
>>38672381Naaah they just retcon her to typical teen girl to avoid that.>"Like, omigosh, Eridan like toootally looked my way earlier! He's SUCH a hottie."
>>38672396That's basically how Maria acts now without the quotation marks.
>>38672362>>38672396>>Eriadne is now some random dude from the other school who Maria falls in typical teen love withWell that's accurate aside from Eri's gender/sex which are the same in AToW because CIS SCUM. I would say....Rebels would probably be good, right?>>38672407Kind of yes.
>>38672407>>38672415What quest are you reading where Maria fawns over Eri?Respects a lot sure, but she's definitely not admitting any attraction to herself.
>>38672396>...Rebels would probably be good, right?Probably and they would all team up to take down the oppressive government just like in every other piece of teen fiction.>>38672407The quotations make a big different in how insufferable you are also >>38672424is right Maria isn't even fully aware of how she feels about Eri yet.It's a good thing Eri is.
>>38672424Okay, I'll give you that.>>38672362>>War is simplified to some basic us vs them shitOh and that, isn't it that already? Sort of?
>>38672436Rebels a best and most cute.
>>38672424>Respects a lot sure, but she's definitely not admitting any attraction to herself.There was that write-in where she called her cute.
>>38672436>Oh and that, isn't it that already? Sort of?We just had Maria say we need to learn about them especially if they're wrong. There has been no learning.
>>38672452>There was that write-in where she called her cute.> Eri just side steps it cooly without even a hint of embarrassmentSo good.>>38672455Right, true.
Seriously though even if the world's government was evil and malicious rebels would still be complete shit.With how they target younger people who are going through a rebellious phase really makes them the AToW Isis.Not to mention our shadowy fiqure head.
>>38672491I bet they don't have any real options, so had to take a super shitty one and brainwashed themselves enough to go through with it.That doesn't make it okay, but what the fuck were they supposed to do? Live under [list of complaints here]? Fuck that.
>>38672514Well, since they decided to join a bunch of anarcho-capitalist murders their complaints were probably fucking stupid to start with.Or at least they were fucking stupid and didn't even attempt to solve their problems properly first.
>>38672491[notmyblog]As someone who has been forced to engage in firefights with children under arms that hit me hard. I don't resent Hex for writing it but shit man.[/notmyblog]
>>38672537I'm feeling pretty sure the whole Lamere/LaFontaine debacle has something to do with it. I mean, purging villages is generally something that'll spawn rebellious moods and such.
>>38672546He's been writing that since day 1. Some witches are disturbingly young, will be expected to kill, and don't have vows of nonviolence like Helena.Liliana will brainwash herself to like the killing, while we're at it.
>>38672561> it's all Maria's fault> ofw
>>38672561Still doesn't make them less stupid though since a) she got put on trial for it and b) She's not a government agent she was a knight of Sharsee.Like the government has no control or ranking over her and even if the rebels win the law clerics will still be there to enforce the law even if they have to judge dread it up.>>38672562This world really doesn't put much value in the innocence of the young.
>>38672573Please support Eriadne in stopping Maria from killing herself!
>>38672546...just how many armyfags do we have in Hexer's fanbase?>>38672584> tfw so lawful she does something she knows isn't legal for the sake of justice, then is woman enough to allow herself to be judgedDid Hex just make Paladins not shit?
>>38672584Well, generally A: people are often less than reasonable with this kinda stuff, and B: the government kinda managed a one-two combo of first not dealing with criminals in the area and then letting a knight rampantly murder anyone suspected of aiding them afterwards, which probably is gonna spark some 'what is the government doing for us anyway' feelings.
>>38672589Yea no. Such a piece of refuse doesn't deserve to live.
>>38672610>which probably is gonna spark some 'what is the government doing for us anyway' feelings.>The sheep have gotten far too comfortable in their guarded pens and think they can survive in the wild.It really is a minority though which is why the rebels have to resort to bombing factories and killing civilians.They're even worse than the gangs and will get no sympathy from average Joe in this world.Since most of them are still aware of the dangers in the night of this world.
Will Hex get another post in before thread is ded?
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/125157420098> how is Thanyreia pronounced S/Tan-eeh-ray-ah.>>38672641((That is the intention, anon. Also, daaaaamn all dat dere speculah. This will take a while to process. Also, I love you guys. So much)).
>>38672698Shyamalan presents: A Tale of Witches when?
>>38672714((Since thread one.))They're actually sisters.
>>38672725Who?Trick question, all of them.
>>38672725Nooooooo!Git to updatin'
>>38672725>Not even the same speciesShyamalan plsOn an unrelated note it's got to be fucking insane to come up with a way to get Maria and the twins to interact with Maria not liking to interact with younger people and avoiding it and the twins being pretty quite themselves.At least Liliana and Helena are social butterflies and initiate with Maria.
>>38672754Avoid it long enough and Maria will do it out of duty. Like, she's supposed to be their team leader, and she barely knows them?! Better fix that! Then she spends an entire thread getting laughed at by Sora.
>>38672754But how can they interbreed if they're not the same species!? Checkamte, atheists.
>>38672754How can they interbreed if they're not the same species? Checkmate, atheists.
>>38615929>Our convocation stretches long past what I had planned, the women’s initial concern soon giving way to hushed debate and burning curiosity, their minds beginning to mull over the possibilities like so many well-oiled calculators. Of course, Ekaterina is once more the exception and it takes a lot to keep her from roping us all into one of her divination rituals. I suppose it’s to be expected; Nobody has seen as much as she has, and even fewer would honestly want to.I just want to take a moment to appreciate that Sensing teach's main method of problem solving appears to be tossing the biggest divination she can manage at anything and everything.
>>38651862>You do have a way of ending up in beds other than your own Lady MariaI would be disgusted by my waifu's sluttiness too.
>>38672846She's just upset because Helena put her in a position of not being able to get Maria in her bed while not coming off as too forward.Helena probably doesn't even realise that she cuddle blocked Eri.
>>38672846Maria is such a playa.>>38672863inb4 the Senra is mad as fuck at finding us this way.
>>38672863Eri isn't kidding about not wanting to be touched, you know. She's probably happy someone as disrespectful as Maria is sleeping with someone else.
>>38672878>inb4 the Senra is mad as fuck at finding us this way.Maria would use a Rite to detect the fact that Liliana and Eva have been doing worse things.
>>38672882Denial is an ugly thing anon.So's jealousy.
>>38672863>cuddleblockedBut what if Maria was the middle spoon? Now it all works out. Unless the bed is too small.
>>38672917Dragons don't approve of sharing.
>>38672698>S/TanHow do I pronounce whatever this is?
>>38672917>Three way cuddlingYou're in the wrong quest and the wrong setting.Not even northerners are that degenerate.
>>38672924>Eri and Eva get into a fight about it>"Lady Evangelyne, your loli is being improper and stealing lady Maria, I must ask you to keep her in line rather than go off doing whatever you were with your other loli.">"Excuse me, I think you'll find it's Maria who's taken Helena for herself! And I am none too happy about it myself. I was trusting you to keep your Maria well-separated myself, why isn't that you in the bed with her?"
>>38672890...worse things? I'm sure they didn't really do anything bad.
>>38673991I honestly prefer these threads of discussion over 4 days of slowly bumping the thread to stay afloat.
>>38674064It's barely been 2 and a half days, anon!I agree in general, but the past 10 posts or so, while not bad like bumping, were still unnecessary with the promise of an update.
>>38674111No, I agree. Discussion is much better even if it shortens the thread's lifespan. I might be otherwise inclined if cozyanon stopped forgetting to delete his posts.
Almost off the board. See you later Hex!
Bye bye AToWSee you next time.
A Tale of Witches chapter 36 Pt. 1 has now concluded. Part 2 should be up tonight or tommorow. I thank all of those who played for your continued support, glorious discussion and infinite patience.
>>38676813Stay cozy Hex!
>>38676813Bye bye Hex, thanks for the thread
