Become The Vampire Quest 11You sit around at the bus stop trying to piece together a rough plan for the afternoon and evening. A quick trip into town to go shopping with Sammy is on the agenda, followed by a quick break to get changed, though more likely by being picked up by Blake and taken to the party. It'll be wild and crazy, but when the full moon is at its highest you'll need to find a safe place to light your black candle, spill your blood into a cup and chant from your spell book so that you can summon the demon that will give you your first taste of real magic. Everything else is a perk. You just wish you knew what sort of demon you were summoning. If you had more time alone with your book you could try to figure that out.Sammy arrives just in time to disrupt your train of thought, wearing short shorts, a tank top and a loose jacket. Her hair is down and she's wearing a baseball cap, fussing a little bit with the hat to get it to sit properly. You try not to stare at her legs or her chest. An effort is made. Sammy doesn't seem to notice though, and you manage to tear your gaze away before things get awkward. As if you need more reasons for Sammy to feel embarrassed around you.“Hey there. I guess you're changing things up a bit then?”Sammy smiles brightly at you.“Yep. I can't wear my hair like that all the time, people would get suspicious. Plus I like this hat.”She leans down a bit to show you the writing across the front. It says “Wild Child”, and she seems pretty pleased with it. She's almost anything but, but at least she's proud of her heritage. Either that or her dad got it for her, which seems likely now that you've met him.“It's pretty cute on you. And you look good with your hair down.”Sammy punches your shoulder gently as color rises to her cheeks and she chuckles.“Flattery will get you everywhere. Well, not everywhere, but... You get the picture. I like it when you compliment me...”
You rise to your feet and adjust your bag.“You're always making me look under dressed though. When we met up yesterday you were all decked out for it, and today you got dressed up for me while I'm still in my uniform.”Sammy nods and shrugs.“I felt like it. And we're getting you some new clothes in town anyway, so it's not like you'll be wearing that for long. We'll get you equally fancy.”You reach into your pocket and toy with the two golden coins, debating whether or not to hit up the Bizarre again or just get normal clothes. You could afford normal attire and not risk being the only human in the Bizarre for the second day in a row, but you can't spend too much before you have to start considering... alternate methods of income.>Character sheethttp://pastebin.com/QUxw5vf9>RulesSame system as Become The Dragon Quest. If you don't know what that is, it's best of three d20 rolls. I name a stat that sums up what you're trying to do, and if I don't name a relevant skill, you try to fill in the blank based on what you're trying to accomplish. “Break open the door” might be Strength based, but if you've been playing baseball after school and there's a lead pipe nearby, you could apply your Baseball skill to the roll. A 20 on the die is a crit threat, and if either of the other two rolls is 20 or higher after mods, it's a critical. A crit fail is when you have two or more 1s. So far this system has worked out well enough. We'll get into combat rules as needed, but in basic terms you have wounds, not HP, and the worse the wounds, the more penalties you accrue while doing other things.Most Important Rule:Have fun.>Let's head to the fashion district and have a look around, I wanna look good tonight.>Let's see if there's a thrift shop or something, I don't need anything too fancy.>Have you heard of the Bizarre? I went there yesterday for clothes, and I wanna go again.>Other (write-in)

>>44009343>>Let's see if there's a thrift shop or something, I don't need anything too fancy.Also I think the reason BTDQ is lagging is time slot, lot more anons can play on the weekends than weekdays.
>>44009343>Let's head to the fashion district and have a look around, I wanna look good tonight.
>>44009391You have several thousand dollars, carefully budgeted for your next few semesters at school. You don't know how long your mission to become a vampire will be.>>44009434That is certainly a fair point.
>>44009473If we've got the money, then >Let's head to the fashion district and have a look around, I wanna look good tonight.

>>44009572>insulting someone when they bring up a valid point>>44009583Wearing some 150$ jeans won't impress the werewolves overly much and odds are shit is going to be majorly fucked no matter what.
>>44009594>insulting someone when they bring up a valid point>valid
>>44009617Refute it with a logical argument then.
>>44009594>impress the werewolvesWe're not out to impress them, we're out to make Sammy proud to be seen with us, among other things. She's our in to werewolf allies, so not embarrassing her is important, completely aside from the whole "she's ours" thing.
>>44009627There's nothing to refute.
>>44009655We're spending money we set aside for good reason in order to try and impress people we're very likely not going to impress with clothes. That's stupid. Refute that.>>44009637I sincerely doubt us not wearing aberzombie and witch will embarrass her. Our clothes were more than good enough last time.
“Let's hit up the fashion district. I've got some money I can spare, and I want to make sure I look good for tonight. I may as well get some extra stuff while I'm there too, if there's anything I particularly like.”Sammy pouts a bit.“I've never actually been to that part of town... It's contested territory. It's not like we'd be in danger or anything, but we'll have to be careful about where we go and try not to wander too far away from the main streets or open areas. Right now the Collins clan and a vampire family are competing for control of the area. I think it's almost confirmed at this point that they're either lust or sloth vampires, under the control of one of the main vampire families.”You check your bag briefly. The gold coins might not serve much use on this trip, but the book suddenly seems like a bit more of a burden. Still, you're resourceful, and if Mark's family let anything happen to Sammy then that ruins their standing even more. Plus you have the chant mostly memorized by this point anyway, and your phone could probably piece it together for you if you wanted to reveal to it and potentially Meliora that you're learning blood magic. In short, there are options.The bus arrives and you climb on with Sammy, heading for the back. The ride isn't particularly long, but Sammy seems pretty tired, and she rests her head on your shoulder as you travel. You wonder how late she was up last night, or if this is a side effect of the oncoming full moon, a natural desire to sleep before the coming night of frenzy. You gently jostle her awake and lead her off the bus, holding her hand as you venture into the fashion district, looking at the various buildings.“Alright, let's see...”Most of the stores look like they're on the bleeding edge of fashion, with all the styles that the popular people will be wearing next season. You're not after quite that level of style, although some of the outfits would look pretty good on Sammy.
>>44009343Also, BTQM, we should discuss the video of her fiance with her, and find out if showing it to her dad will have the effect we want. Because it's possible her dad will take it as an indirect insult that we humiliated the guy he had chosen for his daughter. Even if he normally would be reasonable, tonight his anger might get the better of him.

>>44009685Dont worry anon I thought the same thing, In the long run though, Sammy might be a good thing towards our blood magic yeah?
You turn to Sammy and smirk a little. She looks like she needs some caffeine, and for a brief moment you're reminded that you need to get those coffee beans for Angie at some point. It's the wrong part of town for it, but still.“I don't really know what to get. This is all pretty high-end for me. I don't think I need something quite this fancy, right?”Sammy nods drowsily.“You'll probably have to hunt again at some point, and there's probably going to be wrestling competitions and races and stuff... and then the main event... You really only need to be dressed up for the first part of the party, after that you can wear whatever you like.”With a nod you glance down one of the streets.“How about we head to a cheaper area and try there then? I can get some decent clothes and then some cheap stuff I don't mind getting torn up.”Sammy laughs a little and nods, her head sinking a little lower with each bob, and you gently pull her along, trying to suppress a joke about it being that time of the month. You want to save that for when her mom acts like a complete bitch tonight, it'll probably be a hit with the more inebriated werewolves.“By the by... I have some footage of Mark from this morning. I got a recording of what happened after you left. He transformed and tried to kill me in broad daylight. I was planning on showing it to your dad.”Sammy perks up immediately, her eyes wide.“I-I wouldn't recommend that tonight... or talking about it here... His family is trying to control this part of the city, remember? But... At any rate, if you show him tonight, he won't be able to control himself. It'll lead to a big fight, and then when both clans are weakened, the vampires will close in... The balance is really fragile at the moment, everyone is being careful.”You head around one of the corners and spot a few shops you recognize, ones with brands and not just super-fashionable specialty shops that don't have chains. You're heading in the right direction.
“Got it. I'll hold on to it then. He knows I have the recording though. Mark, that is. I'll keep it safe for the time being. I also don't know if he remembers what happened. One of the school security... golems? I think it was a golem. Anyway, she beat the tar out of him when he transformed. I think she made him forget what happened, too.”Sammy looks over her shoulder suddenly and clings to your arm.“Don't look now, but I think we're being followed... I saw something in the shadows...”>Maintain a slow, reasonable pace and act like nothing is wrong>Stop to confront the stalker>Run. Run like a coward and live>Other (write-in)

>>44010054>>44010021In addition, if they get closer, turn and confront them. Nothing upsets an ambush predator more than its prey facing it full on(that's how you deal with tigers)
You continue to maintain the same pace and try to keep up the illusion that you're not in any sort of panic at all. All the horrible possibilities cross your mind one after the other. A vampire stalking you and Sammy, eager for you to wander into a less populated area to strike. A Collins werewolf who overheard you talking about Mark and is waiting for you to be vulnerable enough to confront. Some other sort of monster not directly involved in the territory dispute, sizing you both up as a meal. A simple human mugger you could deal with pretty easily, but it's still a possibility. You slip your hand into your pocket and smile at Sammy.“If anything goes wrong, I promise I'm not abandoning you if I run away.”Sammy quirks an eyebrow at that but remains silent. She said that she trusts you, and that seems to be holding true. You pass by a few more shops, heading towards cheaper brand name stores that fall more comfortably in your price range, though there's hardly anyone around. In this town, it seems, only the poor or the unfashionable venture this far out. You hear a single footstep behind you, a careless slip up on the part of your pursuer, and duck into the nearest shop with Sammy.The store seems to specialize in skater attire, and while you're not much for boarding, it's comfortable for parkour and doesn't limit your movement much at all. As you head further into the shop to start putting together an outfit with Sammy you hear the door open and close, but there's no trace of the person who entered when you look.Wonderful.You start sifting through the t-shirts while Sammy checks through the pants and shorts, and you hold one of them up. It has a logo for a skateboard company that you don't really recognize. As you lower it down you see a brief movement out of the corner of your eye, and you pause, looking around. You set the t-shirt down and turn towards Sammy, only to find a girl of maybe thirteen or fourteen between you. She looks at you inquisitively.
“Are you the boy who's stealing Auntie Sammy away from my brother?”Sammy turns to look at the girl and almost jumps out of her skin in surprise.“S-Sophie! What are you doing here?”Her voice is a mix of shock and an attempt at a soft, motherly tone that just makes her come across as more startled than she actually is, and given how she looks ready to panic, that's pretty bad. Sophie keeps her eyes locked on you though, passive and curious. It's really unnerving, and you know it's likely just an act.>Yep. Sorry about that. I just really like her a lot and couldn't help myself.>Your brother is a jerk and doesn't deserve her. I'm not apologizing.>Who wants to know? I don't talk to strangers. You should introduce yourself first.>Other (write-in)
>>44010353He was hurting her, I didn't like that, she didn't like that. Stealing away implies that your brother didn't push her away himself. Sammy is my friend and when someone hurts your friend you stop it. Friends watch each others backs.
>>44010353>Well, stealing is only used when you own something and as far as I know your brother doesn't own sammy.And on top of that >Who wants to know? I don't talk to strangers. You should introduce yourself first.
>>44010353>Yep, your brother is a jerk to her and doesn't deserve her. I'm not apologizing.We want to be clear that he's been a jerk to Sammy, not in general. Who knows, he might be the most doting big brother ever to his sister.
>>44010353>Other (write-in) I'm not stealing anyone. Sammy can make her own choices and she's chosen me over Mark.

>>44010353>Your brother is a jerk and doesn't deserve her. I'm not apologizing
You look at Sophie for a moment. She's analyzing you right now, and whatever you say next is going to speak volumes about who you are in her eyes. Fortunately, you know exactly what to say.“He was hurting her. I wasn't a big fan of that, and neither was she. All I did was help her get out of a bad situation. Sammy is my friend, and when someone hurts your friends, you stop them. We watch out for each other. I'm not saying that your brother is a jerk in general, but when it came to Sammy? He did a lot of stuff that I wasn't a fan of. If you wanna call it stealing, go for it, you're entitled to your opinion on the matter.”Sophie nods slightly and turns to Sammy, walking up to her and hugging her while Sammy looks like she's trying her best not to pass out from fright.“You have my blessing.”She sticks her thumb out, gesturing to you and ignoring the confusion on Sammy's face.“I'll bite him and make him part of the Collins clan so you can still be my Auntie when he knocks you up and claims you.”Sophie grins and turns towards you, her canines lengthening slightly. Sammy blushes, still trying to piece together what's taking place. Sophie seems like a pretty dangerous kid, and you really hope you're not about to have to fight a werewolf in broad daylight. You reach for your phone.>Dive into a dressing room, time for a transformation sequence>Run out of the shop, get some distance between you and Sophie>Pay for your clothes, Sophie is trying to be intimidating but she's all bark and no bite>Other (write-in)
>>44010609>>Dive into a dressing room, time for a transformation sequenceSomething tells me we aren't outrunning a werewolf

>>44010609>No thanks. I like being human. People constantly underestimate me.
>>44010609>>Pay for your clothes, Sophie is trying to be intimidating but she's all bark and no biteWhile I appreciate the thought kiddo Sammy's clan was already looking to make me an honorary member, sides pretty sure it should be MY choice not yours.
>>44010609Easy now. How about you wait til after the moon to talk to Sammy about that first? After all, if you just want to be family with her, there's other ways you could do that. There's a bunch of different human rituals for it, for instance.
>>44010609>Pay for your clothes, Sophie is trying to be intimidating but she's all bark and no bite>Sorry, already promised to the Wolfe clan.
>>44010609>Pay for your clothes, Sophie is trying to be intimidating but she's all bark and no bite
>>44010679>>44010699I'm sorta worried that, it being the full moon, and her being 13 or 14, she may not be bluffing.
>>44010752we're VERY good at dodging.
You grab the t-shirt you were looking at and walk past Sophie, taking the pants Sammy was looking at and comparing the two.“This outfit should work pretty well... Yeah, I'll get this.”You walk past Sophie towards the register and offer her a smile.“Sorry, but I'm already an honorary member of the Wolfe clan. Plus I'm pretty sure that sort of thing should be my choice, right?”Sophie hides her fangs and sighs.“Literally no fun allowed, big bro? Not even a hesitation? A fearful glance? A tremble? Something?”Sophie follows you to the register, Sammy trailing behind you, and as you put the clothes on the counter and grab your wallet, Sophie latches onto your arm and starts nibbling at your wrist, looking up at you. The cashier does a good job of keeping a straight face as Sophie playfully mauls you until your wrist feels a bit sore, and you just sit there and let her have at it. She pulls away and wipes her mouth, frowning.“I'll have to try better tactics... Don't go anywhere, I'll be right back.”She runs out of the shop, and you accept your bag of clothes from the cashier. Sammy moves to your side.“That's the most emotional I've ever seen her... She's normally so quiet and... fussy. She likes pranks though. I think she just wants you to act scared or surprised, even if you're not. Honestly, I was worried she really was going to pull something bad... Last full moon she shoved someone down a flight of stairs and sat on the top step watching to see who would come help them first... They kinda deserved it, but still...">She's not getting the pleasure of seeing me scared until she earns it>Oh, fine. I'll humor her just this once.>Let's just get going. I've gotta pick up a few odds and ends and we can leave>Other (write-in)

>>44010946>Oh, fine. I'll humor her just this once.Kids are kids, it's just a game. I'm just worried about escalation.
>>44010946>Ill humor her
>>44010946>Let's wait out front. I've gotta pick up a few odds and ends still, but it's nice out.>Is she a friend of yours, more or less? She seems sorta desperate for attention. If we try to leave her behind, it'll just make her throw a tantrum, and she'd probably be able to track us anyway. Plus, it'd help to have friends in the Collins clan, to undermine Mark should he try to make a move against us through them. Also, if she's with us, we'll have the protection of her security detail that's undoubtedly looking after her.
>>44010946>She's not getting the pleasure of seeing me scared until she earns itI've dealt with things that make what I lived through here seem pleasant. Not easy to scare.

“If she wants to see me scared, she can earn it. I'm not that easily spooked.”You head for the door with Sammy and adjust your shopping bag, slipping your new clothes into your book bag for convenience and to better conceal your hemomancy tome. Sammy looks around a bit as you step outside.“I don't see her anywhere... She might have just run home to prepare something big.”You nod and glance around. There's no trace of Sophie as far as you can see, not even lurking in the shadows along the path back to the expensive shops. You turn and start heading for the nearest grocery store to grab the chocolate-covered coffee beans and black candle, and pause. You take a sudden step to the right, away from Sammy, and Sophie falls between you both, landing flat on the ground face down. She lets out a muffled groan of pain, and you look up. She had scaled up to the sign and clung to it, then dropped down to try to pounce on you.“Sorry about that, Sophie. Instinct and all that.”Sophie whimpers quietly and Sammy kneels beside her, helping her up slowly. There's blood on her lower lip, and her eyes are watering, and it looks like she bashed her knee pretty badly. She looks like she's about to cry.>Hug?

You look at Sophie for a moment and kneel down next to her. You can tell from how she's holding herself where she's hurting, and you hug her slowly and carefully to avoid hurting her further. She leans in you a bit, and you pat her on the back.“It was a good effort, and you had good form. Next time I'll teach you how to tuck and roll so that even if you miss, you won't hurt yourself. I'm gonna go get some stuff from the store. Sit tight, I'll be back with some ice for you.”Sammy smiles at you as you let go of Sophie. Maybe she thinks it's cute to see your caring side or something. Well, there goes your shot at being the aloof coolguy in her eyes. Oh well. You get to your feet and turn to walk off.“Sammy, wanna help her over to one of the benches? I'll only be a moment.”Sammy gently starts to help Sophie to her feet.“See you in a sec then.”You head into the store and look around. It's not Walmart-size, but it's pretty big as far as stores go, and you make your rounds as quickly as you can. Ice cream, chocolate flavor. Chocolate-covered coffee beans. Black candle. Small first aid kit with the instant ice pack. Your little basket isn't super full, but it's getting there. You'll need to be careful how you pack your book bag with the surplus.You glance at the packs of collectible cards while you wait at the checkout and spot a set for that game Meliora is always playing, and you snag a pack of those, debating between stealing them, putting them back or buying them. You could use them as a gift or bribe for sure, or she might want to play the tabletop version with you.>Buy it>Steal it>Put it back>Steal more than one>Buy more than one>Other (write-in)
>>44011981>Buy itWe don't need the trouble getting caught would cause, not tonight.
First to three, so...
We should get a luck roll to see if we got any Rare, Super Rare, or ultra rare cards.
You put the card pack in your basket and pay for your items as quickly as you can, grabbing the bag from the cashier and heading out with it. You spot Sammy and Sophie talking to a tall and rather imposing man with messy black hair. He looks homeless, if you're being honest, but Sammy is talking to him like she knows him, and he seems to regard Sophie with something approaching sympathy, or at least the closest his callous expression can muster. He barely glances at you before walking off, heading for a nearby alleyway.You sit down on the bench and glance at the man as you unpack the supplies, packing away the black candle discretely and handing Sophie the ice cream while you prep the first aid kit. She takes a big bite out of it, and you pass Sammy the alcohol swaps while you figure out how many bandages she needs and pop the ice pack, giving it a shake to get it to start chilling.“S'really good...”Sophie takes another bite, wincing as Sammy begins to clean her cuts and scrapes, and you apply the ice pack to her stomach where you know her bruising is worst.“I got you my favorite brand, and it's chocolate, because chocolate is great.”You bandage her leg and give the ice pack over to Sammy while you wrap her knee and check her palms, bandaging her hands as well. Sophie holds her hands out and smiles.“I look like a mummy...”She takes another big bite out of her ice cream.“Nex' time I'll scare you properly... And you better teach me, promise?”You nod and pat her on the head.“Promise. Now run along, little ninja. I've gotta head home.”Sophie leaps to her feet, wobbles a bit, and scampers off, limping a little while trying to maintain a brisk pace. Sammy laughs as she gets up and sighs.“You're gonna be a good dad one day.”You watch Sophie run off into an alley and nod.“Teaching girls how to scale buildings and ambush people. Yep. Great dad. Say, who was that guy who was here a moment ago?”
Sammy tilts her head slightly.“Oh, that was someone from Sophie's clan. He saw her and wanted to check on her. He's... undercover, or something. I think he's her bodyguard.”>Go looking for the bodyguard>Head for home, time to change and prep for the party>Find a place to change clothes and have Sammy call Blake for a ride>Other (write-in)>>44012338Do it.

>>44012887We can't be perfect all the time, anon. Better to be mediocre at simple things, and excel when it's important. I know that's not how it works but shush.
You look around briefly."I'm gonna get changed. Wanna give Blake a call and see if he can pick us up?"Sammy blushes."In public?"You look at her for a moment, then at the shops."Actually, I was planning to use a restroom. I mean, if you want to see me topless so badly then sure, but I would have thought you'd want me all to yourself."Sammy blushes brighter and you narrowly avoid a blow to the face with a smile, heading for the grocery store."Be right back. I promise not to be too long."Sammy nods and sighs, smiling at you."Alright then... jerk."You turn around and walk backwards."Excuse me, but I'm a Magnificent Bastard. I've snarked a lot of people to get this title, and I deserve to be called such."Sammy sticks her tongue out at you, and you make a mental note to tell her later that a lady shouldn't stick out her tongue unless she intends to use it. She's just really cute when she's extra flustered. You head for the restroom and get changed into your clothes for the party. It's not your best look ever, but it's affordable and you could care less what happens to these clothes.When you walk out of the grocery store you spot Sammy on her phone, probably talking to Blake. As you approach she cups her mouth, trying to conceal her words and lowering her voice a bit, but you can still make it out. Whoever is on the other end, they're needling Sammy for information on what she's been up to, and you vaguely recognize the voice on the other end as Marie, Blake's sister. You briefly hear her ask Sammy if she's made a move on you yet, and Sammy holds the phone in front of herself."Ride. Now. Please. Thank you."She hangs up, red in the face and unable to meet your gaze, looking off to the side."They shouldn't be too long... We should meet them by the bus station."
>You alright? Did she say something that upset you?>Let's get moving then, the sooner we get there the sooner we can forget the day>Anything I need to know last minute about the party?>I know things got out of hand earlier, but I want you to know that I'm not gonna take advantage of you tonight>Other (write-in)
>>44013174>>You alright? Did she say something that upset you?>Anything I need to know last minute about the party?>I know things got out of hand earlier, but I want you to know that I'm not gonna take advantage of you tonight
>>44013174>Marie gonna be an issue again? I'd like some warning ahead of time.
>>44013174>You alright? Did she say something that upset you?>Anything I need to know last minute about the party?>I know things got out of hand earlier, but I want you to know that I'm not gonna take advantage of you tonight
>>44013199Seconding this, plus>Anything I need to know last minute about the party?
>>44013174>Sounds good, anything I need to know last minute about the party?>Also, I promise to be the responsible part of this relationship tonight. But I only make that promise for tonight.With a smirk.
You pull Sammy in for a hug."That was Marie, right? What did she say?"Sammy leans on you, resting her head on your shoulder."Mostly she was poking fun at me, calling me a little girl, that sort of thing... I could tell my mom was in the background making her say those things... trying to make things awkward between us..."You stroke her back softly."Is that going to be an issue tonight? Marie and all that?"Sammy pauses for a few moments, as if unsure, before shaking her head."No more so than last night, I think. My mom has dirt on Marie for something so she makes her do the dirty work, but Marie does what she can to be nice to me and make up for it. Everyone else will be too wild and drunk to really pay us any mind."You release Sammy and start leading her to the bus stop."I know that earlier things got out of hand, but I promise you that I'm not going to use the full moon or whatever happens tonight to trick or coerce you. If something happens, I want it to be genuinely what you want."Sammy looks down, squeezing your hand gently."...I... kinda wanted what happened earlier, I just... I don't want you to think I'm easy or a slut or anything... I'm a little scared that if you stay until the full moon reaches its peak I'll do something that's gonna make you think of me that way... I really like you a lot, Oliver, and I don't want to do anything stupid...">If something happens, I won't think less of you>I can head out when that happens, find somewhere quiet and wait it out>I'm sure you can hold it together. I have faith in your self-control.>I won't stop what happens if something does, but I won't let it go too far.>Other (write-in)
>>44013534>I'm sure you can hold it together. I have faith in your self-control.
>>44013534>Nothing could make me think less of you. Wait, that came out wrong.
>>44013534>Kiss the top of her head.>I'm sure you can hold it together. I have faith in your self-control.But, I'm probably going to disappear for a little while around midnight anyway. It might get a little too hectic for a while.
>>44013613Wait, drop that "self control" I want it to just say "I have faith in you"And I do think we need to make sure she doesn't freak out when we disappear for the ritual.
>>44013534>If something happens, I won't think less of you>I can head out when that happens, find somewhere quiet and wait it out, if you'd prefer.>Take her hand and squeeze it.
>>44013613>>44013659Either of these will do.
You pull her a bit closer and kiss the top of her head."I've got faith in your self restraint, and I'm probably going to step out around midnight anyway. I think things are gonna get really wild tonight, and while I don't mean to be culturally insensitive, I don't quite think I'm ready for everything that'll take place. Plus it means we don't have to worry about things spiraling out of control between us."Sammy falls silent, but she holds on to your arm all the way to the bus station, and she doesn't relinquish it for an instant until Blake arrives, racing over to the bus station at top speed and skidding to a halt right in front of you. He honks twice and lowers the window."Hop in the back, it's party time! Whoo!"Sammy lets go of your arm as you get up, taking your hand instead as you help her up and into the car. Blake watches you in the mirror for a few moments before turning to face you."I have one rule. If you're going to date Sammy, be responsible. Something goes wrong? Own up to it. I don't care what you guys do, but don't try to weasel out of stuff.">You have my word>Can we do it case-by-case?>Isn't that more her dad's kind of stipulation?>Other (write-in)-Last post for the night, continuing tomorrow

>>44013899>You have my wordCan you tell me why her mom is intentionally trying to cause as much trouble for her as possible? Is it a werewolf thing?
>>44013988IIRC, kinda. She hates Sammy for being a runt, basically a werewolf that can't shift all the way.
>>44013988She's jealous and wants Oliver's D.
>>44014017Some kind anon who's on a computer (as opposed to a phone at work like I am) should compile the story so far into a pastebin or a 1d4chan page, before it becomes too unwieldy to do.

>>44014081>the big bad Milf
>>44014175If I remember by the time I get off work, AND don't feel exhausted, AND BTQM hasn't started again yet, then I'll make an attempt.
I know folks are pushing for the magic abilities route, but if we don't get a natural pause tonight well away from everyone then i suggest we wait on it.Not to mention, we have no idea if doing the ritual will make us smell different or off or anything. Not exactly the right night to drop that one on them. Next full moon should be better for it.
>>44014791Seriously, if we did more research we could ID whatever demon we're summoning, get more prepared, and slow down the pace a little bit, this is only day 2 after all. (Day 2 or Day 3?)
>>44014902It might also be an idea to check other possible magic sources instead of permo-marking our soul on the first thing we found.
>>44014791>>44014902>>44014937All solid points. I missed the thread where we had decided to pursue this, so I was just gonna roll with it, but if nothing else, we should ask Angela about it first. She's pretty unbiased about everything, and has already proved that she'll keep our secrets.
>>44014937Yea, that worries me too. Like, what does marking our soul even mean?
>>44014175>>44014254I'm working on it. Gonna edit out the non-story stuff, should I just post it in a pastebin, or would a different site be better?

>>44017210>>44013899Here we go. I gave up editing it halfway through thread 2, gotta get to sleep so I can work tonight. It's up to date with this thread, QM.http://pastebin.com/67CKxb27
"That sounds more like the kind of thing her dad should be telling me."Blake shrugs."We're family, we all look out for each other. It's how we Wolfe's operate. Heck, if she wasn't being promised to Mark or claimed by you or whatever, I'd probably still be telling this to whichever member of the clan she ended up with."You nod slowly and smile."In that case I better make sure I give this the importance it deserves..."You turn towards Sammy."I swear that no matter what happens, I will own up to it and do the right thing. I will be responsible, and treat things with the gravity and importance they deserve instead of making light of things that truly matter. You have my word."Sammy glances at Blake, who nods, and she hugs you tightly. Blake grins."Works for me. Just don't turn out to be a liar, Oliver."He pump the gas pedal and makes the engine roar and whine before shifting gears and taking off at high speed once more.>Talk to Sammy about something on the way>Ask Blake about something>Enjoy the ride, just prepare mentally
>>44018890>Talk to Sammy about something on the way."So, what typically happens at these parties. I mean, besides dragging an entire herd of deer to the foyer where they're devoured raw in some beastial feeding frenzy?"
>>44018890>Talk to Sammy about something on the wayWhat typically happens at these parties?
>>44018890>>Talk to Sammy about something on the wayI can already see her face once she finds out we want to become a vampire
>>44018890Supporting >>44018919 >>44018986 But do we know if they party at every Full moon? If not ask about that as well. And I also think we should >Enjoy the ride, just prepare mentallyFor the ritual. But like another anon said, maybe taking a bit more time with that in general would be a good idea
You stroke Sammy's back gently as she gets comfortable beside you."So what typically happens at these parties? More of what happened last night or is it going to be wilder?"Sammy shifts slightly, yawning softly and taking off her hat."Wilder... Much wilder... Lots of shapeshifting, drinking, wrestling... other stuff..."She blushes softly, and you immediately get the gist of it. Frenzied, naked drunk people acting on their most primal instincts? Yeah, that's bound to happen at least once."Is that what all the new construction is about? These sorts of parties?"Sammy nods drowsily."Mhmm... Mom wants to redo the bedroom and I think... I think this will be her excuse..."Her eyes drift close and she mumbles against your chest, her tail emerging and wagging slowly. Blake stiffles a yawn of his own."When we arrive it'll be pretty subdued until the sun goes down. Almost everyone will be napping, so if you've got any homework for tomorrow, last chance before morning."You lightly pat your book bag."I might do some light studying, yeah. But I guess we'll see what happens."Blake turns on his music and bobs his head to it, and Sammy nuzzles your shoulder a bit, out like a light. Well, there goes the conversation. You could try to message Meliora again or maybe attempt to nap and bug Angie. Or you could just get out the book.>Enjoy the ride>Text Meliora again>Try to nap and hope for the best>Study the book, look for answers>Other (write-in)
>>44019213>Study the book, look for answers

>>44019213>>Study the book, look for answersBut probably don't just take it out. Maybe we can keep it in the backpack while reading or something like that

>>44019432>>44019448Well, i guess i can stop rolling for today.
Alright folks, pick three questions you want answered. Be specific if possible.
>>44019473What kind of demon is summoned in the ritual to mark our soulAre there any physical(that can be seen by the naked eye or smelled) signs that we are marked
>>44019473What this Book is actually about?
>>44019473Is this supposed mark something that can be detected by other supernatural creatures?Does this damn us to hell?
>>44019473>>44019510And What the soul mark will signify to the myriad supernatural beings who can see it>orMake sure it doesn't bind us into anything else, aside from what it laid out. Demons are tricky, after all.Maybe call or text Angela about it, if we can?
>>44019473What kind of creatures/monsters/people can sense the mark that will be placed on our soul?
>>44019473In what way we can create a protection against the demons we summon? Can we seal the demon if needed to trade her freedom for what we ask? What usually the demon ask in exchange for what we ask of him?
>>44019473What is to mark our soul?
>>44019550>What usually the demon ask in exchange for what we ask of him?A cup of blood for this ritual. Anything else is the demon trying to deceive or trick you.
So the biggest concerns seem to be "who can tell we're marked", "what does the mark do", and "what are the risks involved in the summoning". Is that about right?
>>44019620I guess sp, yeah
>>44019620I think the risk is more of a worry that there's fine print we haven't seen yet, than the mechanics of summoning itself, but basically, yea.And anons, I REALLY REALLY think we should consult our friendly Angel of Death before we go through with this.
>>44019620For me? Yes.
>>44019671I don't want to start dealing with demons if we can manage to become some kind of mordern alchemist i would be okay with it.
>>44019671The Mark itself might do something more, but the book seems to have gone to lengths to avoid fine print. It details a very simple, static exchange and even encourages the reader to not make any deals with the demon, and that such arts are not hemomancy.
>>44019700All the more reason to ask Angela about it, since she's probably our most reliable source, we'll just owe her a favor, which is okay. This is important. The book seems almost too easy, and those things in math class were creepy as hell, literally. Not to mention the teacher said she was feeding them students. We aren't that desperate to bring the folks back. We'd be better off making a blood oath than serving demons.
>>44019802Nobody has, at any point, said to serve demons. Hemomancy is only related to demons insofar as this ritual, which requires only a cup of blood, summons one to give you the ability to use it. No further.This attempt at fearmongering is doing nothing for your argument.
>>44019802You're nuts. The whole goal of the character is Get Our Family Back.We can deal with the teacher when we're stronger and bring it up with Angie, but it's day 2, we can slow down on the mortal enemies front.
You adjust your pack and carefully extract your book, using your school clothes to keep it concealed as you peruse it and using your phone to help make your own translations more concise. It's more of a follow-up, but you feel it's warranted. Better safe than sorry.The first thing you check is the mark. You could swear the passages on it weren't there the last time you looked through the ritual, but here they are plain as day. A magic book on magic. Classy.The mark itself is an etching on the soul, visible and obvious only to those capable of viewing your soul. So probably just Angie from the look of things. It's like a painter signing his work. The summoned devil, low in rank and power, makes an investment by unlocking a small trickle of magical power and signing your soul so that if you should fall into hell, he or she has first dibs, assuming the devil is still alive at that point.The cautioning against deals with devils is there because the ritual is an invitation of a very specific kind, and offers no protection of any sort if you so much as genuinely consider an offered bargain. The devil will appear, complete the task, perhaps make some minor offers and leave. What it wants is for the ritual to not go as planned, and it has up to three offers it is allowed to make before vanishing. Accept even one, and the devil will remain summoned until the task is complete, though frequently they simply devour the summoner and walk the earth without a time limit.You slip your book back into your bag and glance ahead. The house is coming into view, and Blake looks like he's barely managing to stay awake. He pulls up in front of the house and reclines his seat, yawning softly."Here...">Head in and look around, try to find someone who's awake >Wake Sammy up and head in with her >Go for a walk, try to find a good place for the ritual later >Other (write-in)
>>44019891>>Wake Sammy up and head in with her
>>44019891>>Wake Sammy up and head in with herYou'd think on a Full Moon night they'd be wide awake
>>44019891>Wake Sammy up and head in with her
>>44019891>Wake Sammy up and head in with herThe rules seem straightforward enough. I fail to see how this could go wrong.
>>44019845>>44019850I'm not fearmongering, I'm just saying we don't have enough information. We're just assuming this book is honest, with absolutely no fact checking. And we're putting a permanent brand on our immortal soul that proclaims to anything that can see it that we do blood magic. We don't know if this will be like waving a giant "smite me" sign or what. Blood magic is not common, remember? I'm all for going all beyond the Boundary with our blood control, or even d&d tier blood mage, I just think we need more information first. Hell, even a phone assisted Internet search would help.
>>44019891>>Wake Sammy up and head in with herFuck this ritual. And fuck the demon that wrote it..
>>44019940What's a quest without a few risks? Besides, this will probably offer a good chance. Everyone else is going to be busy losing their minds during the Full Moon, we'll have plenty of privacy, and I think we can resist the three temptations.
>>44019939>I fail to see how this could go wrong.Famous last words. But fuck it. Now that we know we're selling our soul in exchange for the power, >>44019940Ignore me there. Let's do this shit! We'll just find a way to weasel out of it later. though I'm gonna be mad if it turns out Angie could have made the exact same pact with us, if we only asked.
>>44019968The ritual will likely lead to Allegsiet/ 4 grand necromancer dickery at minimum. Fact checking would be wise. We can last 1 month here without magic.>>44019940smart
>>44019988Blood-chan seems nice, so go for it.
>>44019968I half disagree with you. There must be better way of acquiring power. Just because something is risky wouldn't you want to increase your chances to survive it?
>>44020010Literally who? Going YOLO and jumping in without looking can get us in seriously deep shit, and BTQM wants us to be paranoid. NEVER take a source at face value, and always look up extra info or second source for confirmation.
>>44020013But it's RIGHT THERE. It's power, it's in our hands, we got it, we should absolutely use it, if only to make things even more interesting than before. Which, admittedly, isn't necessary, but I want it to happen for the Fun.
>>44019850I would like you to reread our premise quest. Our mother told us a powerful VAMPIRE can bring dead vamps back. We don't even know if this book will work on the former undead. It's just the easiest path, which, >>44019968, is often how you get a bad end. It's only day two. I say we take a month for more research like >>44019988Cause what if it won't work and we can't become a vampire cause of it?
>>44020042And when dealing with demons, it's good to be a little bit paranoid.
>>44020059You just want us to die so BTQM has to focus on BTQreboot. Hush. Most of us really enjoy the social games we've been playing.
>>44020067That is the most impotent argument in this entire chain so far.
>>44020059You realize rushing into something is exactly how BTQM said we'd die right? That'd make the quest so interesting and fun, oh wait, no it wouldn't, because we'd be dead.>>44020078yup
Am I the only one that expects the demon to a qt?Knowing /tg/, we will make a deal with her if she's cute. Which I'm totally for if we get a qt3.14 demon waifu
>>44020098>Make deal with demon>Get damned>Get eaten>GG no re.At that point not even Angie could keep our dumbass alive.
>>44020098It's a low level demon, so probably not even humanoid or gendered.
>>44020098>>44020090>>44020088>>44020078>>44020067>>44020059>>44020042>>44020013>>44019988>>44019980Alright, I think we've beaten this dead horse. Let's do a straight aye or nay so BTQM can advance the plot, yea? >I say no. We need more info.
>>44020059Rushing for power is a good way to fuck yourself.Besides if we fail to acquire this power we won't be able to acquire other kinds of power. And because i like Angie i don't want to mingle with demons.
>>44020154You don't have the authority to call a vote on this, and trying to do so will just mean that I vote yes to spite you.
>>44020154I vote nay
>>44020154Nay, i say nay to demons!
You gently wake Sammy up, adjusting your bag a bit as you shake her shoulder."Sammy?"She mumbles softly in response and you kiss her gently. She kisses back sleepily before yawning against your lips and rubbing her eyes, sitting up."Mmm...?"She smiles and gives you a drowsy wave."Hi... Sorry about that..."You open the car door and climb out, offering your hand to her."No worries. You alright?"Sammy nods slightly as she climbs out and takes your arm."Yeah... It hits me hardest when the full moon is approaching since I'm... you know... But everyone else is probably napping right about now..."You head for the door and Sammy fishes her key out of her pocket, unlocking the door. The house isn't nearly as crowded as last time. In fact, you only see two werewolves curled up on the rug, fast asleep. Then you hear the clicking of heels, and Jennifer walks out of the kitchen holding a can of Red Bull in one hand and a glass of what is probably vodka in the other. She frowns at you."Good evening, Samantha. Oliver.">Write-in
>>44020154Yes.We need power, it doesn't mean we have to use it, but we need it anyways. And, if the thing is just a low rank, maybe we can deal with it?
>>44020194"Good evening Ma'am. Hope we didn't disturb you."
>>44020194What a hoe
>>44020201The problem is we may be fucking ourselves over hard for the power, and I'm fairly certain we couldn't kill even a low level demon. We really do not need power if the strings attached damn us, rip out our soul, or make us go into a bloodthirsty rage, etc.
>>44020194>Write-in, Smile, wave, say hello, try to take Sammy up to her room.Girl needs some comfy before things get nuts.
>>44019932I'm also mostly nay on this at the moment, since we only have one source. That could tell us all lies and we wouldn't know. So before doing it maybe collecting more info would not be bad. Also this >>44020236>>44020194Seconding >>44020211 and >>44020241Greet her friendly and get sammy into her room
>>44020236There are only significant strings attached if you're stupid enough to try and make a secondary deal with the demon, going by what information we currently have.Also don't respond to the troll.
>>44020211Second this endeavour.
>>44020272>Not responding to trollsWhere do you think this is, /tg/? Wait...
>>44020194>Red Bull isn't an adequate substitute for sleep. Talking from personal experience here.
>>44020272According to the book which is our one source that we haven't fact checked, at all.
>>44020201I don't know how demons work in BTQM quest. But once a demon is destroyed in our plane his soul goes back to hell and after a long period of time he can re-create his body and be summon back. Unless we get spells involving bidding or destroying souls we can get in big trouble.
>>44020272I'm getting the distinct feeling this might be some cursed book made to screw over mortals. As certain passages seem to appear only if we look for them.The first thing you check is the mark. >You could swear the passages on it weren't there the last time you looked through the ritual, but here they are plain as day. A magic book on magic.
>>44020302I'm aware. I didn't say that we shouldn't do more research. Just that we currently have no facts indicating that there would be strings attached.>>44020364It's also possible it's a magic book made to hide it's secrets from one or more kinds of creature, or that the wizard who wrote it just found this a superior alternative to an appendix/table of contents.
>>44020296>But when combined with vodka, it can do wonders for like 52 hours, assuming you don't have to drive.
>>44020364Fuck it, let's bring it to Angie or burn it
>>44020272>Also don't respond to the troll.Only because you asked nicely.
>>44020412True. So, spend a month finding secondary sources before we commit?
>>44020440So long as we don't discard it entirely, I'm fine with that idea.
>>44020457We totally have time to call Angie right now and ask her about it, while the wolves are all napping before the party. She's been as honest with us as anyone, and I do believe she owes us some secrets from our dream-gamble. Though I might be mistaken there.
>>44020492Milf wolf is still awaken. But we can always expect to have a good roll.
>>44020530We obviously make polite noises, then excuse ourselves and step outside. Might as well indirectly ask Mel about it too, since she monitors our phone with a subroutine.
>>44020492It's worth bringing it up with her, but it's unlikely to satisfy my desire for further knowledge on it's own. An angel would likely have a strong bias towards discouraging a mortal from pursuing any sort of deal with, well, depending on the nature of the setting, any magical creature, but especially demons, and possibly any path at all that would result in them acquiring power beyond their station.
You wave politely at her and smile."Hi there. Sorry to intrude. I know there's a big party going on tonight and everyone is pretty tired at the moment, so we'll try to keep things quiet."Jennifer takes a swig of vodka and washes it down with Red Bull, shuddering. You can almost smell her drink as she draws near, and it's certainly not vodka. It's a sort of... aniseed smell. You wish you could remember what drink smells like that. Something with an A..."It's fine. I'd like to have a word with you later though. I have some matters to discuss with you."She looks over at Sammy, her expression shifting to neutral, if a bit imperious."Alone, preferably."She turns back to you. You've almost worked it out. Ab-something. Ab..."I've had a word with my husband about allowing you into the clan. We've made some arrangements. We will discuss it when you have the time."She heads for the stairs, taking another swig from each drink. Absinthe. She's drinking a whole glass of the stuff along with an energy drink. Either she has the tolerance of a god, or she's going to get seriously fucked up tonight. Sammy squeezes your arm."At least there's going to be good news, right...? Otherwise she would have told you right now that you won't be able to join the clan... She would have liked that..."You shrug a bit. Mark acts like a jerk but enjoys writing poetry. Sophie acts scary but it's all a game. Patrick acts like the big dog in charge but is a huge softie around his girls. You're starting to wonder if every werewolf is like that, dual in nature and in form. Maybe Jennifer's icy exterior hides something underneath.
>>44020583She's drinking fuckin absinthe? Goddamn.
>>44020583>Maybe Jennifer's icy exterior hides something underneath.Untold fathoms of further bitchiness.
>>44020582I dunno. She's an angel of death, a grim reaper, not a halos and harps angel. She seems more like a reaper from supernatural than the Bible. that's probably just my preexisting bias though
"Maybe. Let's head to your room and relax."Sammy nods, and you walk with her to her bedroom. She blushes brighter with each step, and as she opens the door she glances at you shyly. Her walls are covered in posters of bands and athletes, and her bedspread is the same purple as her carpet. Her bed is right under a large window, and there's a bathroom adjoining the bedroom."Home sweet home...">Let's take a nap and rest up>Wanna make out?>So there's this ritual thing I was thinking of doing...>What do you wanna do?>Other (write-in)
>>44020598With redbull. Dam mama wolf you're hardcore
>>44020608>Let's take a nap and rest up
>>44020607Angels of death are still angels. Though I would expect them to be kinder and potentially more protective towards mortals than, say, angels of genocide or plague.
>>44020608>So there's this ritual thing I heard of, I was wondering if you've heard anything about it, or things like it...
>>44020608>Your mom was drinking Red Bull and Absinthe...I was genuinely not afraid of her until I figured that out.

You head for her bed."Let's take a nap and relax for a little while."Sammy nods a little and heads for her dresser."Let me get changed into my pajamas then..."You sit on the edge of her bed and wait for her. She turns to look at you, hesitating."They're in the wash..."She turns back to her dresser and grabs a few things, sparing you one last glance and running off to the bathroom to change."Feel free to get comfortable. I'll just be a second..."You take off your shirt and bag and set them aside. You know Sammy doesn't drool in her sleep, but if Sophie was any indication she might nibble on something, and you don't need to have to explain a wet patch to someone during the party, especially her parents. 'Yes, we went to sleep together and here is where she chewed on my shirt in her sleep'. You can't see it going well. You slip under the blanket and relax.Sammy comes out of the bathroom in a white T-shirt and panties and nothing else. Nothing visible at least. She strides towards you with forced confidence, looking embarrassed and trying to gauge your reaction. You do your best to subtly encourage her, partly for her sake because she deserves to be confident in her appearance, and partly for your own sake, because damn."I don't really have anything for you to change into, but I wanted to get comfortable..."She climbs under the blanket with you and curls up at your side, tail wagging slowly. You slip an arm around her and try to keep it casual, kissing the top of her head. She lightly pecks you on the chest in response, and you try to relax into sleep. It's not easy, but you manage it despite the distractions, although you drift through your dreams without control.
>>44020814It was to lock the door We wake up with Sammy, Marie, and Sophie in bed with us. They're all naked for some reason. Patrick and Jennifer are standing over us.Bad End.
...You awaken in a cold sweat, with Sammy sitting up beside you looking worried."Oliver! Oliver, wake up!"You rub your head a bit. All you can remember is black cloth and a silvery blade sweeping toward your face. Someone was there, laughing at you, a voice you didn't recognize. Something about time, and tonight, and... the rest is all lost.>I'm fine, just a nightmare>What time is it?>What happened?>Other (write-in)

Someone is behind working to get us killed by eliminating a werewolf possibly trying to incriminate us?>it's going to happen tonight and the time is ticking
You sit up slightly and take stock of yourself. Physically intact, sweaty, dull throbbing pain around your neck that is vanishing moment by moment. You turn to Sammy and pat her on the head softly."It was just a bad dream. I get those sometimes. I'm sorry for worrying you. What happened?"Sammy leans into your touch before holding your hand in her own and hugging it to her chest."You were mumbling in your sleep, and then you screamed and went rigid. You went limp all at once, like you were dead, and... and I was... I was scared... that..."She tackles you, hugging almost crushingly tight and whimpering against your neck. You stroke her back soothingly while she slowly calms down. The full moon has her all out of sorts and it isn't even dark out yet."I'm fine, Sammy. I'm here. I'm not going anywhere, I promise..."Sammy nuzzles your cheek and rubs her eyes, nodding.>Let's go back to sleep. We need our rest and I'm enjoying having you close.>We're already up, how about we cuddle for a bit?>I'm gonna shower and get cleaned up, mind if I use your shower?>Other (write-in)
>>44021212Possibly, or one of Angie's coworkers is expecting to collect us, and the silvery blade was her scythe. But let's stay on guard and next to Sammy all night. She needs protection from Mark right now. All the blackmail in the world will do us no good if she's dead.
>>44021233>>I'm gonna shower and get cleaned up, mind if I use your shower?
>>44021233>Kiss her deeply, holding just as tight>Let's go back to sleep. We need our rest and I'm enjoying having you close.
>>44021233>I'm gonna shower and get cleaned up, mind if I use your shower?Check ourselves over in the mirror, make sure there's no, like, fucking pentagram or something on us.>Promise cuddles when we come back.
>>44021259Supporting instead of >>44021256But throw in a kiss for reassurance first.
>>44021259While we're in the bathroom, make sure the hero suit app is functioning properly, we might need it. Just run a diagnostic or something, no need for a transformation sequence.
>>44021311>Inb4 the nightmare corrupted our suit and we Devil Man now
>>44021339at least we'd still have our soul. Lol
You kiss her and smile."I'm gonna get cleaned up, alright? I just need a quick shower. I'll only be a moment."Sammy looks down and nods again."I'll be here when you get back... Leave the door unlocked, I don't want to have to worry that you've slipped or something in there..."She's really getting protective of you all of a sudden. It's endearing, but also a little worrying. You don't need her following you all night if you decide to perform the ritual."Alright, I will. But no peeking."Sammy blushes brightly, and you leave her stammering and flustered on the bed as you head for the bathroom for a shower. You run the water and look yourself over in the mirror. There's no mark on your body, at least, as far as you can tell, but you could swear you saw a black haze looming behind you for a split second. You get into the shower and scrub yourself down, collecting your thoughts.Angie said that your mind creates dreams and controls them, or something like that, and that you could dream lucidly once someone lets you know it's a dream. You don't remember the nightmare at all aside from fragments that are getting hazier and hazier, so it probably wasn't a vision or anything. The black haze could have been a trick of the light, too. Or death is right behind you waiting for you to run out of time. One or the other.You dry off as you get out of the shower and inspect your pants and underwear. They could probably do with being hung up for a bit to air out, you don't want to reek of sweat all evening, but you don't have anything else to sleep in besides your school uniform.>Screw it, naked time>Dress pants are basically fancy pajamas, right>They'll reek of alcohol, so they can deal with it>Other (write-in)

You slip your pants back on for the sake of decency and check yourself in the mirror one last time. You adjust your hair a little bit and head back out into the room. Sammy is already fast asleep, and as you walk closer you see that she's hugging a pillow to her chest. You climb into bed beside her and hug her from behind, and she scoots back slightly to meet you, her back against your chest. Your eyes slide shut, and you let yourself sink back into sleep.You try to retain enough awareness as you sleep to dream lucidly, and you almost fail. It's the irregular phantom sounds around you that keep you from zoning out completely. You look around and find yourself on a cliff. Ahead of you is a deep, black ocean full, you are certain, of lost souls. You turn and see a figure in black robes advancing towards you slowly, dragging a scythe behind them. It's a different style from Angie's weapon, cruel and wicked and decorated with spikes.>Call out to the figure>Try to call Angie into the dream>Leap into the black sea to escape>Imagine something else (write-in)>Other (write-in)

>>44022006When gambling secrets with Angie in our last game of dream poker, one of the secrets was Olivers fears of an "imaginary" Nightmare Beast which stalked him as he and Dead (Beat) Dad moved from place to place.
>>44022046Ah alright, thank you>>44022051Thank you for compiling that (I assume that was you), but I don't want to reread everything, since I've read the first threads in almost one go around thread 6 to catch up.And Seraching for "nightmare" doesn't reveal anything relevant (It brings me to the passage about eating Sammys Cookies :3).Still good work, I appreciate it
You face the figure and focus on Angie, trying to will her into existence. Your mind latches onto the easiest thing to imagine, something you've pictured before, and as the figure ahead of you starts to run at out, scythe raised you imagine Angie in front of you in a schoolgirl uniform. She sweeps her scythe through the air, knocking the robed figure away, and turns to face you with a smile."You really love seeing me in this thing, huh. Maybe I should invest in one for you to accidentally walk in on me modeling. What do you say to that?"Before you can reply she leaps after the figure, black wings spread wide as they clash. You focus on imagining the terrain always shifting to Angie's advantage since you can't seem to affect either of them directly with your imagination. After a few particularly intense moments Angie knocks the figure back a few steps and slices the blade off of their scythe."He's mine. Don't interfere anymore."The figure pulls back their hood, and they look like an older version of Angie."But he grew up in my jurisdiction! Come on, sis, he's supposed to be mine!"Angie shakes her head."So long as he remains in this town, he's under my care. When the time comes, I'll reap him, so long as that's within my borders."Angie's little sister stomps her foot before vanishing, and Angie strides over to you with a smile."Sorry about that. Did she scare you? She's always so overzealous.">I'm fine, now that you're here>So about this ritual...>I've got your chocolate coffee beans>Other (write-in)

>>44022152>I've got your chocolate coffee beans>So about this ritual...
>>44022244Typo happened. I can't brain, I have the dumb.
>>44022269It's okay, QM, we like your dumb. It's a fun dumb.
>>44022195Third or fourthing
>>44021909Guessing either a demon or something inside Oliver himself.
"I'm alright, mostly."You conjure a mug of coffee for her, along with a bowl of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and sit down at a table that you imagine between you. Angie takes the mug and downs half of it before sitting down, eating a few coffee beans with a smile."You certainly know how to spoil a girl... So what's this about 'mostly'?"You conjure a copy of her sister's scythe and examine it."She's been trying to scare me for a little while now. Any particular reason she keeps trying to kill me in my sleep?"Angie sips her coffee slowly, taking some time to consider her response."She's training to be a grim reaper. They're a specific class of angels of death who use fear to drive people to their ends. Particularly wicked people, mostly, those who are running out of sand and who must learn to fear death in the hopes that their final moments will be full of good deeds and repentance. I think she just wanted some extra practice. I'll have a word with her."You nod slightly and conjure a copy of the hemomancy tome, though it's completely illegible in your dream."This is the other thing that's bugging me. I saw this book on blood magic, and that sounds interesting, but part of it involves a deal with a devil and my soul being marked. Can I get a second opinion on it?"Angie narrows her eyes slightly, a wry smile on her lips."Those marks only affect you if you die and go to hell. I could do it for you if you like, mark your soul and everything, but then I wouldn't feel right giving you your present when I see you next.">I'll deal with the devil and look forward to your present then>Could you do it? I trust you, and I'm fine with not getting a present>Will this do anything else? Let me use other magic, keep me from turning into a monster?>Other (write-in)

>>44022469>>Will this do anything else? Let me use other magic, keep me from turning into a monster?>I'll deal with the devil and look forward to your present thenSeriously wanting to know all my options, blood magic alone will pay dividends in a school full of vampires.
>>44022396Could just be a hallucination of childhood insecurity given form by his brain. or an accidental tulpa made of same. Or it could be his old imaginary friend that went five kinds of yandere when Oliver forgot it existed.
>>44022469seconding >>44022505>>44022515 I bet it's a demon or something Mompire set up before we staked her.
>>44022469>>Other (write-in)Ask her if the ritual as we know it seems right as the book is being a bit sketchy with details
>>44022469>Could you do it? I trust you, and I'm fine with not getting a present>Will this do anything else? Let me use other magic, keep me from turning into a monster?>Presents can wait. I've got a bag of real life beans to gamble on you with.
>>44022534We feared it when we were a kid well before we staked our bitchy mompire.>>44022515Given monsters are real? Unlikely. I also doubt Oliver has enough mental energy to make a tulpa or imaginary friend, unless he's innately magic.
>>44022534I reckon it could be an old vampire that turned Oliver's mum and then just followed the family to watch the drama unfold.
>>44022585>>44022635>>44022731>>44022755Literally why? If she confirms no backlash we can tell the demon to fuck off. We're wasting shit.
>>44022469>>44022501Changing to supporting >>44022505
>>44022616Maybe we ARE innately magic or psyonic. Who said we aren't?
>>44022763It's a samefag, duh.
>>44022763Who says we won't be popping into hell at some point? Personally I'd rather have Angie mark us, mainly cause she's best girl, but we'll go with the majority. I don't truck with hell, in general. I mean, they are, by definition, unadulterated evil.
>>44022797So what they're doing it in a vain attempt to waifu the angel? That makes no fucking sense.>>44022850We get marked we're fucked in Hell no matter what so your waifuing her doesn't work.
>>44022797Clearly. Don't be upset just cause the majority doesn’t agree with you.
>>44022882>What is phone>What is dynamic IP>What is proxy>What are basic samefagging techniques everyone can use that trick the (You) system
>>44022909>what is butthurt
>>44022867No, she said she can put a mark on our soul. The mark from the book guarantees we go to hell and belong to that demon if we die. She just said she can put a mark on our soul like that(likely her own mark, since it's an ownership thing)
>>44022469>>I'll deal with the devil and look forward to your present then>Will this do anything else? Let me use other magic, keep me from turning into a monster?
>>44022929>The mark from the book guarantees we go to hell and belong to that demon if we dieIt only guarantees we go to that demon *if* we go to hell. At least get your facts right.
>>44022929>The mark from the book guarantees we go to hell and belong to that demon if we die.Wrong! If for IF we go to hell. If we're not a evil asshole we're fine. It's basically the demon spending a dollar or two on the lottery. IF we go to Hell then we belong to the demon. I for one don't plan on Oliver being a shit.
>>44022909>What is I'm laying in bed and honestly trying to enjoy this quest instead of shitting it up, as you seem determined to do with your obsession with the demon mark.Most of the anons appear to not want it, just let it go.
You lean back in your chair."You said you could do it, right? Because I'd rather go through you than some random demon. I'm fine with not getting the present if need be."Angie looks at the imagined book and flips through the pages."I already got you the present is the thing. Plus, if this is the book I think it is then you'll need a demon to talk with as you go through the various advancement rituals, and you may as well start shopping around using a safe ritual. Really you only have to worry if you plan on being an evil and selfish bastard your whole life. And then my sister will just show up and scare you straight."You nod and consider her words, and decide to press for more information."What else does the mark do? Will I be able to use other types of magic or anything?"Angie smiles a bit."Yes, and it also functions like an advertisement. Whatever devil you get to mark you, your deeds and growth will impact them and their status. You can use that to your advantage. Devils want the souls of powerful, evil people to fall into their hands, and will sweeten their deals considerably if you present the right bait. Plus, if you help that devil out then other, more powerful devils might seek out your services with their own offers. I can coach you on that if you like, I spent my younger years working in accounting, working out what souls went where and dealing with dropping wayward souls off in hell.">I'd still rather you did it, even if it means I'll only have access to the basics.>Let's play some devils for fools then. Teach me your ways.>I'll wait on this, actually. I'm still not sure.>Other (write-in)
>>44022967I'm summoning the demon anyway.
>>44022949>>44022964And again, why would we want to risk belonging to a demon, instead of a chill angel that plays poker with us?
>>44022909Why waste time, if everyone relevant is voting for the same thing?Now you're just going full shadowrun, son. It's not healthy.
>>44022984>Let's play some devils for fools then. Teach me your ways.
>>44022984>Let's play some devils for fools then. Teach me your ways.Teach me oh wise and beauteous one! That's how you lay on thick for those otherworldly entities how have big heads right?>>44023000Because we only go to her IF we're sent to heaven.
>>44022984>Let's play some devils for fools then. Teach me your ways.>>44022987Right, cause that's how this works. One anon decides it. Shut up and bro down with the angel ally.
>>44022984>Let's play some devils for fools then. Teach me your ways.Scam the damned
So she can us give the mark that will unlock some basic potential but to advance we would still neet to deal with devils and demons later ond, did I get this right BTQM?>>44023020>Because we only go to her IF we're sent to heaven.So you are planning not to?
>>44023020>Because we only go to her IF we're sent to heaven.No, she said those marks are only relevant IF we go to hell. But if she's willing to help us screw devils over, all the better.
>>44023059Not him, but I'm not planning on dying period.
>>44023059Correct. Which means using other rituals that aren't guaranteed to be safe like this one and conducting interviews looking for a devil to partner with. Using this ritual ensures you can meet at least one devil under safe circumstances, so long as you don't intentionally fuck things up.
>>44023059>So you are planning not to? Planning on existing a long time, remember what the end goal for Oliver is.>>44023069>No, she said those marks are only relevant IF we go to hell.If she, an angel, is marking us, then pretty sure it's the same effect but different domain.
>>44023059>So you are planning not to?We're planning to be immortal, remember?
>>44023095>pretty sureAssuming things gets you killed in these quests, anon. Just like assuming she's on "heaven's" side. Did you not catch the whole, "She worked in accounting, with devils and demons" thing?
>>44023094Al right>>44023095>>44023106Oh shit, yeah ... That was dumb of me I guess. But still, sooner or later Oliver is going to die. When the sun burns out and devours the earth or when finally the heat death of the universe draws near.>>44023137She coached the souls to their place, she didn't say she worked with devils, but she noticed which souls go to powerful ones. At least that's how I read it
>>44023137>Assuming things gets you killed in these quests>He says in defense of another, more drastic assumption
>>44023137She is a reaper, they get to see where souls go, how they get judged, etc. She never worked with the demon/devils, she just dropped off the souls of the people who deserved hell to them.
>>44023180I expect to have conquered heaven and hell and ascended to true god status by that point.
>>44023220I'll allow it. But you better have your trusted werewolf lover by your side still.
>>44023220You realize the all of higher end demons/devils and archangels would be living walking nukes in our world at full kick right? I.E. Critical existence failure by being in a 100 mile radius of them?
>>44023219>I spent my younger years working in accounting, working out what souls went where and dealing with dropping wayward souls off in hell."You may be right, but that reads to me line she worked in the Hell Liason office, and had to deal with the rebel cousins regularly.
>>44023267Anon, we have until the heat death of the universe to become an eldritch god vampire able to bitchslap galaxies.
You conjure a cup of coffee for yourself and sip it."Alright then. I'll deal with the devil tonight and then you can teach me how to properly mess with some infernal heads."Angie smiles broadly, looking quite pleased with your decision."I really hope we get to mess with this one devil, a greedy, card-counting jerk. I forget his full name but he calls himself Erickson. You know, like the hypnotist?"You shake your head because you don't know who she's talking about. Angie shrugs and helps herself to some more coffee beans."Well, he was a really famous hypnotist, and this devil thought it would be fun to use his name since he's a manipulative jackass. At any rate, someone is trying to wake you up, so I'll let you go. Have fun tonight, and whatever you do, use your head."You open your mouth to speak and wake up with a slight jolt, the dream vanishing. Sammy is pressed against you, though after a moment you realize it's more you pressing against her. She's tugging at your wrists, trying to loosen your hold a bit, and you realize it's probably because you're rock hard and your hips are right against hers.>...five more minutes>Apologize, try to make light of it>Mumble her name, see what she does>Get up and give her some space>Other (write-in)

You shift a bit, loosening your hold and yawning."Sorry about that..."You sit up a bit and ease away slightly, and Sammy latches onto her pillow once again. You stroke her side slowly, her tail wagging slowly. It's not resting along her legs but instead lifted and against her back."Having you beside me like that made it easier to sleep. I guess I got carried away by my instincts."Sammy nods a bit."R-Right. Instincts."It sounds like she's trying to force the words out, like she's having trouble speaking, whether from fear or something else. You peek behind the curtains and see the sky turning dark, the sun slowly setting. You look at Sammy.

So we are dense on purpose, is that it?
>>44023808We got a handjob from her not too long ago, oliver is anything but dense 2bh
You gently scratch behind her ears and her tail twitches." Come here, Sammy. I want you to tell me what's bugging you."Sammy moves slowly, body trembling as she rolls onto her front and crawls closer on her hands and knees, tail raised. Her eyes are still focused and alert, but she's slowly slipping into that same daze you put her in when you bit her ear. She climbs onto your lap, straddling you and resting her hands on your shoulders for a moment before embracing you."I'm burning up inside... I... I know that I shouldn't... that we shouldn't... but I really want to, and I'm scared that we'll..."Her tail twitches behind her, and Sammy whines softly."I'm sorry, Oliver... I don't want you to think badly of me..."You stroke her back slowly to reassure her, but it doesn't have the intended affect."I promised not to take advantage of you, and I won't. If you need some time alone, I'll go and hang out while you get ready. Do whatever you need to do."Sammy nods and releases you reluctantly."Thank you, Oliver..."She buries herself under her blanket, and you kiss her softly before you dress and grab your bag. You can hear her stirring under the blanket before you leave, and you close her bedroom door behind you, making sure to lock it on your way out.>Go see what Jennifer wanted>Track down Stephen>Time for shots>Other (write-in)

You contemplate Jennifer's summons and decide that now is the time to take her up on it. You take a single step and see a brief flash of... something. Jennifer, upstairs with two women, Marie and another who you don't recognise. Two empty cups where once there was absinthe, two empty cans of Red Bull beside those. Marie and the other woman looking concerned, Jennifer looking perfectly poised and in control, save for the smallest of tells, the way her hands move, one on top of the other and then switching.You come back to your senses and find yourself at the foot of the stairs leading to the third floor, leading right up to Jennifer and her entourage. She's drunk and barely maintaining her front of complete control in the face of intoxication and the full moon. If you were looking for a good time to reason with her, now isn't it, but if you were looking to persuade her emotionally or make use of her inebriated state, you've struck gold.>Venture upstairs, let's get this train wreck started.>Now isn't a good time, let her sober up or crack completely first>Other (write-in)

Look at it this way, if she wants, later on she can use this to go back on her word or modify whatever deal. Due to her intoxicated state. However, provided we don't try to get one over on her she -might- let us off light.Or keep her word despite the drunkeness. Possibly gaining more points in the process. It's pretty much all upside as long as we aren't douches.
>>44024658>>44024671It would be in poor taste to deny you a crit here. Its just too disappointing otherwise, there's too much hype. So with your crit, what do you want to discuss with Jennifer?
>>44024747Our claim on Sammy since Daddy Sam already said we're cool
>>44024747Considering the crit?Threeway
>>44024747>>44024775This.Here's a pastebin with up to the end of this thread, QM. http://pastebin.com/0QiN4UEw
>>44024747Reasons why allowing Mark to be Sammy's mate over us would lead to Patrick killing him and subsequently going to war with the Collins family. We can use the video as evidence.Also why Marie's on the hook and, if possible, getting her off the hook.
>>44024747Sammy being our friend, of which we have very few. Yes we're interested, but not going to rush her. The fact that Mark is a verifiable hothead and jerk who had blamed Sammy for us telling him off, which is a crock of shit honestly. Oh and honorary pack member status.>>44024789Silver, no.
>>44024747claim on sammy, treatment of sammy, why marie's acting weird
>>44024775Our claim on Sammy. We're basically together, no sense putting it off at this point.
>>44024796Not tonight. We promised
>>44024796>We can use the video as evidenceNot with her drunk and wolfy. We're trying to NOT cause a war between packs, remember? We'll just say we have evidence.Just our claim on Sammy.
Snack break then new thread.
>>44024658>>44024671You...you guys,,,you're awesome!!
>>44024821Might as well go for all the female werewolves, it'll be a bad end, but worth it.
>>44024881I rolled part of the crit too, hot tonight I guess.
>>44024891Not really anon. Not at all.
>>44024747Might be a good point to try and press the claim, maybe emotionally manipulate her into feeling bad about her behavior towards Sammy before pressing home with the fact that she really likes us (and the feeling is mutual) and we have a claim that would let her end the engagement to Mark with minimal loss of face with the Collins clan as a whole.
>>44024927>not wanting to be torn apart by a werewolf haremThat's some casual taste right there.
>>44024891>bad endI don't think that means what you think it means. And we're going to make the female vamps our thralls too. AND Angie and her sister. Harem end FTW
>>44024929She'd owe us way harder if we weren't taking advantage of her. So how's about we just bother her about stuff in general? Ask about the Collins and figure out her reasons rather than assuming she's garbage?
>>44025040>She'd owe us way harder if we weren't taking advantage of her.She's a literal and figurative bitch that kinda hates her daughter and us. Taking advantage of her current state is the best shot we have, the other being getting Patrick to be a man already and tell his wife to fuck off with that shit, and our best chance at causing *that* could start a clan war.
>>44025040Why'd you have to go and get all reasonable, anon? We're a teenager, complete with hormones and (possibly)supernatural compulsion to resurrect our parents.
>>44025040We learned her reasons already anon. She is a bitch, she hates her daughter for being a runt, she is marrying her to Mark because she knows he's a jackass and it's a way for her to be useful and in misery.
Should we try to convice her to let up on sammy?
