You are Clarissa... and you're about to do something weird.It's not that you're feeling embarrassed about it or anything like that, though truth be told, you kind of are, a little bit. There's nothing really wrong with this, either. So, well...You lean up a bit on your pillow and raise your knees. If this might be your last chance, might as well, right?"Just don't let your bodyguard see anything, alright? You won't be in trouble for having that phone? Is she seriously in your room right now or something?" That bodyguard is kind of a bother, and you want to make sure Kimiko won't get into any trouble.The phone beeps with her reply. "Ew! I won't! Only you get to see me. She's not in my room, but she's in the one right next to this one, but the walls are thin. And she wouldn't take away the phone or anything, I'm allowed to have my own things. She wouldn't know what this phone is for anyway. Let's keep going if you want. I don't know how to though so you need to take charge of me, Clarissa."Actually, you don't really know how to do this sort of thing, either. You've never done it before; there wasn't really a need to do it in such a roundabout, indirect way with Aiko. Whenever you wanted to see her, you just went and did exactly that. You wish you didn't need to resort to this kind of thing with Kimiko.The phone suddenly beeps again as you're tapping on the numpad with a lone thumb, but you realize that the message came from a completely different and unfamiliar number. You immediately get a bad feeling about it, and the contents justify that unpleasant hunch."Young ladies, my subordinates have realized that something is wrong. You should have a few minutes until they shut everything down, so try to make the best of them. Good luck! -U.K."(1/2)
>>42308046U.K. must stand for Urahara Kisuke. You heave a disappointed sigh. You're guessing he sent the same message to Kimiko as well, so there's no need to waste time repeating the warning to her. The warning is much better than a lack of one, even though you can't help but feel angry and disappointed. At the very least the cut in communications won't be unexpected and abrupt, but, still... what an annoying time to end it on, just as you were about to... do some stuff....Jokes aside, you wish you could talk to her more.How do you say goodbye to her? Is this really going to be the last chance you'll get in this lifetime to speak with her? What words would be appropriate here? What words could possibly make this easier on her?Damn it... why couldn't this last just a little longer?...>Other. (Write-in).
>>42308046You'll pay for this, Urahara Kisuke.
>>42308071>"I guess that's it, huh. I don't think we'll have time then, sorry Kimiko. I love you."Urahara a shit
>>42308071"I'm not going to say goodbye. I don't know how long it will take, but I will find you, and I will give you everything you've dreamed of. So... I'll see you later, Kimiko."
>>42308071Glare at the phone and concentrate our sixth sense, maybe get in shinigami form to do it. Damn wish-granting orb can't even make a phone call last longer.
>>42308071>And she wouldn't take away the phone or anything, I'm allowed to have my own things. She wouldn't know what this phone is for anyway. Really doesn't sound like staying in touch would be that tough...whatever.>>42308071>I'll make sure I remember you properly, so you do the same, alright? I can't wait to see you for the first time. Take care Kimiko, I hope you find happiness in things other than waiting for me as well.
>>42308247Maybe the plotrock power can be used to sense SS through the connection between our phone and hers or something?
>>42308274That sounds good, just make sure that at no point do we promise to wait for her.
>>42308324That's what I was hoping, but I think it's one of those things where, even if it -could- we don't know how to do it.
>>42308343As Paul shows, you don't even need to be conscious anon, much less an expert! Alright it's not the same, but we could just really reeeeeeally want to know where it is, maybe.
>>42308362I figured the best we could do would be to end the conversation voice-to-voice instead of through text.
>>42308406That would be nice too, yeah.
>>42308274>I hope you find happiness in things other than waiting for me as wellI feel like this is important. Like no matter how small it is, I hope she finds something to enjoy.
>>42308071>How do you say goodbye to her? Is this really going to be the last chance you'll get in this lifetime to speak with her? What words would be appropriate here? What words could possibly make this easier on her?Damnit, do we no longer have control over Clarissa's resolve?
Clearly, the universe exists to make Clarissa miserableAnd Uruhara is a creepy old man who waited until the opportune moment to send that message
>>42308629It's actually heightening my paranoia that this quest is awful enough that Urahara is catfishing us.
>>42308629Pls, he'd have let us finish if he wanted to be a creep.
>>42308071Voting over, writing!
>>42308843Not letting them finish is really mean by the way!
>>42308856This is a family friendly quest!
>>42308872You could FtB!Oh well, done is done.
>>42308183>>42308274>>42308213You set your hands on the phone, the fingertips of your thumbs wandering around the numpad. How are you supposed to write down your feelings with only a few minutes remaining and a meagerly few hundred symbols as the limit? Even if you had all the time in the world, you don't think you'd manage to come up with anything decent. You feel like you could spend a lifetime chatting with this girl, but it's unbelievably difficult to think of how you should say goodbye. There are just a few minutes left. You have to push through this bitter pain and get it done, because if you don't, the wait will be unbearable.As you write your thoughts down, you realize something and erase what you had.This shouldn't be a farewell. It should be a 'see you again'."I'm not going to say goodbye. I don't know how long it will take, but I will find you, and I will give you everything you've dreamed of. I'll never forget you, so you do the same, alright? I can't wait to see you for the first time. But promise me to try and find happiness in things other than waiting for me, alright? I know it might be hard, but give it your best for me. See you later, Kimiko. I love you."You send it. Her reply didn't come while you were tapping down yours, so even if she was writing something, she's been interrupted. How many minutes have passed since Urahara's warning? You hope there's just a little more time left. You hope the connection is still there.The phone beeps once more. For the last time.(1/2)
>>42310159"I'll do everything I can, Clarissa. I really want to see you again, too. I can't wait for you. See you, and I love you."Has the line been cut yet? Will you get an indication of some kind, or is this it?...There's no point in staring at this phone. There's no reason to write anything else, either. This is as good of an ending as it gets, for now. Until you really get to meet with her....>Wait and try to live on, just as Kimiko wants you to.>Try to figure out a way to get to her.>Other. (Write-in).
>>42310188>Try to figure out a way to get to her.Yep.>I can't wait for youI'm sure it's reading too much into it, but still.
>>42310188>Try to figure out a way to get to her.I'd kind of like to talk to the Hougyoku about this, I had a whole speech planned out. Not sure if I should dump it now or later.
>>42310188>Try to figure out a way to get to her.I've felt pretty sure about that since yesterday's session really. Clarissa doesn't necessarily have to hurry TOO much, but she definitely should work towards it as best she's able.
>>42310188>>Wait and try to live on, just as Kimiko wants you to.
>>42310227I don't mind if we get the chance, though a speech might be a bit much. I suspect we might not meet it again though.
>>42310227Like the gist of it is that at some point, we thought that growing up meant our dreams had to shrink, and maybe killing Aiko just accelerated the process, maybe our world was already eroding. But that never had to be the case, especially not now. A chance encounter gave us overwhelming power, we can be a hero just like we wanted to as a child. Here's the main part I'd like Clarissa to say out loud"Though perhaps 'hero' isn't quite the right word. Becuase, even if Kimiko was worth risking everything, and she is, I'm not doing this for her. I'm doing this for ME, because -I- want to and I AM worth it."The only thing this call settled is that Kimiko isn't in immediate danger, which means that we don't have to rush in with our heads cut off, we can focus our powers, expand them in new ways, maybe even seeing if we can copy some tricks from Hollows and Quincys. The first thing we should do is settle things with Paul of course, but after that... Urahara should have made sure that the new local shinigami was someone he trusted, because though it's true that we shouldn't reveal our shinigami power to them, we're a lot more than just a shinigami. If we're patient, and maybe take the time to observe first, we could make a new friend.
>>42310371That doesn't really make sense to me, like if nothing else, because we were able to manifest the spirit ribbons there, our Inner World might be the safest place for us to hone our powers, since there shouldn't be a chance of the local shinigami being alerted to our presence.
>>42310466Depends who's coming, really. But if they're competent they'll probably find us as soon as we find them, so I dunno how much observation we'll be able to do.
>>42310502Eh, the way I see it, Naoko is really good at observation, and though being an illegal shinigami is very much a crime, there's nothing wrong with being a spiritually sensitive human.
>>42310466And the main reason I wanted to say it to his face was I wanted to dare him to disagree with us like he seems almost compelled to do.
>>42310188Voting over, writing!
>>42310687Guess Clarissa needs to find her CONVICTION!Or maybe she already has...
>>42310702Well, I found it at least, and so did a couple other players as well. Let's see what that's worth.
>>42310743Its weight in gold I'm sure.
>>42310805Hopefully. I'd like to say more, but I'm worried that even something as simple as being negative and wishy-washy in inter-thread communication could effect the outcome of our prompts. I mean I do feel strongly that this is what I would want to do, and what I feel that Clarissa would do, especially earlier in the quest but.
>>42310974Yep, just gotta have confidence now!
>>42311009Then instead of doubting and worrying, I'll instead try to convey what I want Clarissa's resolve to be through song.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fCL1B5gPUg
>>42311137>Stand up be strong>Know right from wrong>Forever hence>Believe yourself>And when you feel the pressure>The strain is hard to measure>So in your sheer endeavor>Forever hence, believe yourselfGoddamn, say what you will about the Bleach anime, but it had some good music.
>>42310210>>42310227>>42310303...Of course. One hundred years is ridiculous. It's hard and painful to even imagine. But... you don't have to wait that long.Kimiko is worried that you'll get killed if you go there, and you're worried that you'll have to kill to get through. But neither of those things are necessary. Your power is to grant your own desires, not to merely destroy. Perhaps with enough time, you'll get skilled enough with it to make your way through without anyone losing a drop of their blood. That might be the way to go about it, with brute force serving as a desperate backup option in case you mess something up.Well... first of all, you need a means to get there. To Soul Society. You can't get there on your own. You need a Shinigami to open the necessary door for you and let you through, and there's just about no plausible way for that to actually happen without you directly and forcibly affecting their mind. And the power doesn't even work properly on those with spiritual powers, at least unless they wish for it themselves, for whatever reason.So you'll have to weaken them enough to make it possible, or strengthen yourself enough to overwhelm them. And that might mean a fight. If you spend time learning how to get it done without starting a battle, that would be perfect, but, well, you're not exactly sure how long that'll take or what method to use to get to that point.The other thing is that you need to make sure that whoever it is you'll affect won't alert the Soul Society of your intrusion. You have a remarkable appearance, so them just having a description is probably going to cause too many problems, however big that other world may be. There's one easy way to ensure that your presence won't leak, but it's a grim and unpleasant option that you'd prefer not to consider at all.Once again, it seems that you'll have to rely on mind control. To both start and end it.(1/2)
>>42311594...However, if it's Hiyori who reports on your rebellion, then the only person she would most likely report to would be Urahara. And would he snitch on you to everybody else? Well, there's at least a chance that he won't, which is better than a certain guarantee of the opposite. But of course, the girl is leaving really soon, and that's only a way to lighten the impact of a worst case scenario.Nevertheless, it's still an option. Is it better to deal with an unpredictable and clueless newbie, or is it better to deal with the angry but in-the-know blonde? Can you be confident in the flawless execution of your abilities, or is it better to make the 'failure' inevitable but potentially that much less painful?...>You have a couple of days; train as much as you can and try to enter Soul Society through Hiyori.>Take your time, wait for the replacement Shinigami to arrive.>Think of a reason that would make Urahara extend Hiyori's duty in Karakura, and try to convince him of that. (Write-in).>Other. (Write-in).
>>42311594>Once again, it seems that you'll have to rely on mind control. To both start and end it.Does it?>>42311633>Skip this stupid MC plan alreadyI mean that hasn't been our plan since it was pointed out Shinigami resist that, and was hardly a consensus even before that. Plotrock will offer other ways.
>>42311633I dunno, these all seem really stupid and not what I had in mind.Pass I guess.
>>42311654>>42311785Please make a write-in of what you had in mind!Sorry if I misunderstood something!
>>42311633>Take your time, wait for the replacement Shinigami to arrive.When I said I wanted to befriend the new Shinigami, I meant exactly that. I mean I figured that we could just ask the new shinigami -how- to open the door, hopefully without revealing that we're a shinigami, and then do it ourselves. We have a couple hell butterflies after all and that and a zanpakuto are the only requirements, after that it's all technique.
>>42311819Personally I was planning on simply trying heading somewhere remote (after training for a bit I guess) and unleash the full plotrock power focused on the phone (which has a connection to SS) to force our way there. See no reason why there should be a limit on our power preventing this from how it's been described.If it fails, oh well. Using MC is just leaving a trail and antagonizing more people than we'll have to, assuming it even works which seems unlikely.
>>42311633Is that really the only way? We've seen things go to and from different worlds before, Clay Bone in particular we've seen retreat many times. And when it comes to perks hollows have, No One's stealth would certainly make operating in the Soul Society a lot easier. Sure, we'll probably have to be careful not to let it overwhelm us, but impossible? There's no such thing. But first, I'd like to see about replicating Naoko's powers, just to see if we can.
>>42311905I feel like one thing we could do is see if we can change our shinigami appearance at all. Like if we get some cheap hair dye, the kind that washes out, would it affect our soul?
>>42311938The idea of using a hollow to travel to Hueco Mundo and get some experience with that/find a way to SS from there also has merit.
>>42311962>Shinigami weakness: hair dyeI dunno anon that sounds very weak, even for an overpowered girl like Clarissa.
>>42311905Eh, I feel like we'll definitely use at least -some- Mind Control, but hopefully nothing more severe than jedi mind tricks. I just don't want to be completely reliant on it, and I don't think we're ready to go in the next couple days, especially against Hiyori. I mean, she really doesn't like us, and if she notices us messing with her, then she will probably legitimately attempt to murder us.
Anyway, I feel like even if we want to MC, waiting until we get more practice is fine - when we free Kimiko we'll get most of SS against us anyway, there's little to gain from not 'tipping them off' or whatever. So no reason not to try plenty of other methods relating to our powers first - while we don't want to leave Kimiko alone for years or anything, we can take a couple weeks at least if we must.
>>42311962So let's set up an order? Don't do anything rash, practice our powers for a bit and I guess try this out. Then the other options one by one. I dunno if introducing ourself to the new Shinigami will sabotage our chances at the others or vise versa, but I don't mind trying it first. Then we can try to force our way through and/or finding a hollow to bully if that doesn't seem to pay off.
>>42311633>You have a couple of days; train as much as you can and try to enter Soul Society through Hiyori.>>42312044That being said, though, Hiyori doesn't like us or Urahara that much, so we might be able to use that. Maybe something like"Look, I'm gonna be able to get there eventually, and I'm probably gonna make a mess of things when I do. And when the other shinigami find out about me, you're gonna get caught up in it because Urahara was playing around. But if you help me, best case scenario is that I stay out of your hair pretty much forever, and maybe even minimizing any splash I would make. And worst case, you could get on top of the situation while letting Urahara get his just desserts."
I feel like there are a lot of differences in how everyone envisions the plan, myself included, but I'd like something more concrete so that I know what to write next!I'll skip the current choice and write the next bit I had in mind!>>42311962So you want to bleach your hair?
>>42312219Like what does Hiyori want? At the base level, what she wants is not having to deal with us or our bullshit anymore. And she probably wants to watch Urahara at least squirm a little bit. So we might be able to convince her that helping us is the best way of granting her wish.
>>42312244pls>>42312244It's more that anons have several different ideas of what to try and most of them have far smaller (or at least less definite) consequences than trying to mind-control a Shinigami. So that comes at the back of the queue.
>>42312244I guess what I figured was that a 'plan' wasn't something we needed just yet. When it comes to our powers, we're still just a child, unaware of how to use our potential, and what we can truly do.We don't know what we'll be able to do in the future if we keep up our resolve, so I don't want to be tied down by our current limitations, not when the Hougyoku said that mostly all those limits are illusory.
>>42312261I sincerely doubt that, not the least because it's an enormous risk to herself to let someone like Clarissa into SS.
>>42312330Yeah I know, I guess I was trying to convince her that our incursion into Soul Society is inevitable, and she literally can't kill us (might need to fight her first), so her best option is directing us to minimize our impact, and finding a way to cover her ass.
>>42312377I dunno, I just don't see why she wouldn't go straight to Urahara with it. And if we posed that to Urahara, I don't see why he wouldn't try to remove plotrock instead of take the risk. Unless we have a REAL mean Jedi Mind-trick, Kimiko's family will raise hell and everything will be out in the open from that, after all.
>>42312427With Kimiko's family, I figured that from what we've heard, it seems unlikely that they have any spiritual powers themselves, and are instead just wealthy and influential pluses. So they shouldn't be a problem. LIke one of the reasons I want to wait is to figure out an endgame instead of merely run for the rest of eternity.
I don't know, I'm starting to really lose confidence in this, like the way Mushroom wrote it out, it seems like that was the wrong choice and there really are themes we're missing out on.
>>42312477I dunno, they'd probably have SOME power even if not anywhere near influential Shinigami level like captains. Her bodyguard must surely be mook-level at least and they presumably have some normal guards too, plus probably at least a FEW spiritually powerful people across the family. I mean, Kimiko wasn't the strongest but she still had power herself.>>42312537Stay strong, anon!
>>42312572True, but it sounded like we weren't dealing with the Kuchiki clan that has a proud martial tradition, so I feel like they're unlikely to be stronger than a lieutenant. Like I don't know, even if they had natural power, that's not worth a lot without training.
>>42312627A fair point. I definitely think we should try it when we get there, would make things a lot simpler and it's not like we won't be antagonizing them anyway if it fails.
>>42312572I'll try, but it's hard. I think we really were meant to be done with the Hougyoku despite him being a guide to help us with our powers. And despite how cool cutting loose was, I don't think fighting was meant to be more than incidental. I think this really is one of those almost artsy stories about growing up and letting go, and we'll force Mushroom to choose between compromising the ideals he set out to have in the quest, or having us suffer the consequences that he already decided such childish actions would bring.I feel like it's such a good quest it deserves to be played right, even if that means not doing everything we wanted to.
>>42312718>I think we really were meant to be done with the Hougyoku despite him being a guide to help us with our powersHas he ever done shit to actually help use his powers? Other than advising us to use it for seducing fair maidens I can't remember anything.
>>42312785He helped tell us what it was, and he did give us at least some advice in the past, like what to do with Paul. And I don't know, when it comes to learning fine-tuned control I still think in our head is as good a place as any.
Maybe mind control isn't the only option at your disposal. You have the power to grant your own wishes and desires, so surely, the potential application is far broader than just those forceful methods? The only barrier is your current inability to properly carry out your wishes in a controlled manner, which can hopefully be changed given enough time.The Hollows ran away from you somehow; you remember Clay Bone in particular abusing that ability. They tore holes in the fabric of the world itself, and escaped into the void that was hidden underneath. It's disturbing to think that you'll have to enter that darkness yourself, but if that's what it takes, then you'll do it without a second thought.Your biggest worry is that the tunnel they use might not even lead to Soul Society. Do Hollows have their own 'Soul Society', or is their hideout in the same world all the Shinigami reside in as well? That seems somewhat unlikely. And unfortunately, there's only one way to find out for sure. But it's terrifying the more you think about it. What if you mess up and get stranded in that void?...Damn it, the biggest problem is still getting to Soul Society. You'll pull everything off once you actually make it into Soul Society, you're sure, but getting to that place is such a pain.Well, there's not much use thinking about it on your own. If anything, you should consult with the Hogyoku, as it is your power itself. You should do that, and you will get to chatting with it again soon enough.(1/2)
>>42313082Did I imagine it or wasn't there some hollow bigwig taking interest in Clarissa foreshadowing at the start of the quest? The Menos Grande seemed mindless, so has that been completely abandoned?
>>42313119That was only No One who wasn't even an Adjuchas. Just a wicked old hollow who learned some tricks and had been around entirely too long.
>>42313082There's just one more thing you have to figure out on your own, and that's the question of your life here after your departure. Of course, you still have Chappy, and you can have it live your life while you're out, and the joking worries about your reputation aside (which aren't really all jokes, you suspect, though it's still negligible by comparison), there's nothing wrong with that. But... Ren and Naoko know of Chappy and will most certainly notice your absence the moment you are gone.They both clearly dislike the idea of you going there. Even though the trip doesn't necessarily need to be full of bloodshed, you'll still be going to a completely different world, completely alone, and there's plenty of risk and danger even if you don't try to force your way with through any obstructions with a hail of soul-cutting swords. So, their worries are not unwarranted at all, and they'll no doubt attempt to discourage you from it if you tell them about your intentions; even if Naoko might bitterly accept it without a fight, Ren will most certainly at least try to convince you to stay.Even so, should you tell them what you're planning to do? You may not have a plan of any substance yet, but that might change at any given moment, and it might be proper to warn them of that possibility. ...But at the same time, it'll no doubt be a tiring endeavour....>Tell them as soon as you get the appropriate chance that you're planning to head to Soul Society.>Take your time and see where this goes first. You don't have to worry them now, while nothing is certain.>Other. (Write-in).
>>42313145Was that the only one? Huh.>>42313154>Tell them as soon as you get the appropriate chance that you're planning to head to Soul Society.We should. Tell them we're being patient about it too though.
>>42313154>>Take your time and see where this goes first. You don't have to worry them now, while nothing is certain.
>>42313154>Take your time and see where this goes first. You don't have to worry them now, while nothing is certain.
>>42313154I don't know, what would we say?Phrase it more in terms of a long-term ambition, and not a desire to throw our life away. If they demand why, all we have to offer is that as foolhardy as it is, it really does feel -right- to us. And with Kimiko, we love her.Would they distance themselves from us, maybe even alert Urahara themselves? Or would they try to support us when they realize this isn't desperation to the point of despair, like it was before?
>>42313154>Tell them as soon as you get the appropriate chance that you're planning to head to Soul Society.Does the 'as soon as you get the appropriate chance' refer to when we'd tell them, or when we're planning on heading to Soul Society?Because I'd like to make sure they understand that we're not going to rush to our death, or let our life burn down in our desire to grow stronger.
>>42313328>>42313274Both me by the way, initial deliberation and then deciding to take another risk.
>>42313328When we'd tell them. As in, as soon as you get the chance to talk about this, instead of right now, in the middle of the night. Sorry if it's unclear!
>>42313154>Tell them as soon as you get the appropriate chance that you're planning to head to Soul Society.
>>42313154Voting over, writing!
>>42313082I definitely remember hollows being able to go from Hueco Mundo to the outskirts of the Soul Society, but I'm not sure if that was filler or happened in the manga as well.
>>42313578Wait never mind, of course they can, at least in one very spectacular method, that's how Aizen made his ultimate "deal with it" escape, by gillians using that force field that they've never done again in the entire manga.
>>42313667But unfortunately, hollows might not be able to instinctively do that, or at least we'd have no way of finding that out.
>>42313565You know, I kind of wish Urahara would have explained that on the Soul Society side, there's only one Senkaimon that's constantly monitored (technically royal families might have private ones but that was only in filler arcs) and even shinigami can't use it casually.I mean that would be really discouraging and more or less remove that as a valid option. It's almost like he wants us to break in.
>>42313172>>42313328>>42313424You decide that you'll tell them as soon as you get the chance. Even if they protest, that's fine. You'll just have to bear with it for a while and hear them out; of course, you'll try to drive across the fact that you aren't going to break your neck over this, and that you'll try to make it as safe as you possibly can. But the inconvenience is worth enduring if it means that you won't have to be burdened with having to hide it from them, and they, too, will be able to prepare themselves for it.You just need to wait for a more appropriate time. It's past midnight right now; the chat with Kimiko seemed brief but it actually took a while because of those unwieldy phones. You'll tell them tomorrow about your intentions.So what you need now are answers and clarifications. Your power is ridiculous, and you're clearly not making full use of it. You just need to figure out how to actually do so without degrading into a monster every time.Once again you enter the bastion of your inner world. To your surprise, the golden man is absent from his throne, instead entering the throne room a few seconds after your arrival through the massive double doors of engraved stone. He seems almost surprised to see you, but quickly regains the usual neutrality to his expression and walks on towards his seat."Do you have questions for me already? I can't say I expected you to return so soon." He suddenly stops, turning away from his throne, and looks out towards the desert beyond the walls of his fortress. The blond man approaches the window and sets his hands on the windowsill, thoughtfully observing the bluish sands....>Ask him a question. (Write-in).
>>42314160Let's ask what he was doing out there. He seemed to enjoy the throne so much!
>>42314160Tell him we're planning to go to SS, ask if we could use our power to go straight there with sufficient training. I feel like we already asked but might as well do it again.
>>42314160>Anything different out there? I wanted to hear if you had any advice for me in how to use my power.Explaining our goal, again. And let's not listen to any attempt to dissuade us this time.
>>42314160"Can I practice my power here, in a way that wouldn't endanger the world of the living, even if, while here, I cut loose?"
>>42314234Don't bother asking this, he said that he doesn't know how, so we don't know what to wish for.
>>42314160"Wait a sec, are there -other rooms- here? More to the point, I've made my decision with Kimiko. I don't care how long it takes, or how hard I have to work, but I -will- see Kimiko again, so I'll probably be seeing a lot more of you. Consider everything before now a warmup, because I'm going to put you through your paces.That being said, I decided that since tomorrow I'm going to be lectured by Naoko and Ren, I might as well talk to you first, so you can participate in your favorite activity of trying to take the wind out of my sails."
>>42314298He already explained that. If we want anything constructive from him, we'll have to be more specific.Like try asking him what it would take for us to be able to replicate the powers of hollows or quincy, considering that Kimiko had to pierce our heart with a sword.
>>42314160I'd like to end the thread for tonight, it's getting really late! Next thread will begin with the answers to the questions!Next thread will be announced on twitter:https://twitter.com/MushroomgamiIf you have any feedback or questions, shoot them my way!Thanks for reading!
>>42314609Thanks for running!
>>42314482Or alternatively, "I've decided I'm no longer going to let my dreams be eroded by acceptance of things as they are. I'm not going to be chained by doubt or what is or isn't possible anymore, but nor am I going to burn in my own ambition. I will temper and hone your power in ways I haven't dared to imagine until now, and then, when I'm ready, I will see Kimiko again because that is my will."
>>42314609Thanks for writing, Mushroom
>>42314609>cockblocked by a dead personLike I said, there will be a reckoning for that.And thanks for running, and for being flexible with us. Hope we don't give you too much of a headache.
>>42314710Don't worry about me, just do what you think you should!
>>42314765We were but then he cockblocked us!
>>42314788Should have just been really quick about it.
>>42314837But they're girls, not boys!
>>42314364I mean we could ask if his ability to create zanpakuto with all their properties, if 'open a senkaimon' actually means something to him as to a list of zanpakuto functions along with cleanse/damn hollows with the blade, send ghosts to pass on with the hilt. Like it -sounds- kind of easy.Also that soul phone. Any way to charge it more, or figure out how it works?
>>42314765But what if what we think we should do is make sure you're having at least as much fun as we are?
>>42314883Love overcomes all obstacles.>>42314926You can't do that because it's already done.
>>42314903Unfortunately, if I'm interpreting Urahara's cockblocking (cuntblocking?) text correctly, the problem isn't that the phone lacks power, or the signal will erode, it's that the longer and bigger the transmission, the greater the chance of Urahara's own subordinates decoding it and then we're screwed. So the problem is more one of encryption, concealment if we want to talk to her again using that method.
