It's never been the same since she left you. Living life in the poorer section of Seattle has never been easy, as a kid you grew up with friends by your side, enough food to healthily make it through the day, and despite several run ins with drug addicts, gang members, and the general scum of society you've managed to come out unscathed as you enter your 20th birthday. Today used to be a fun day, time you'd spend with her, celebrating, drinking cheap liquor and smoking cheaper weed, enjoying the time you've had together. Time you’d laugh, make love, and be happy to be alive.But now? Now you just sit in your rundown apartment, in a state of disrepair and uncleanliness befit of a rat, you are contemplating the end now that she’s gone, disappearing a year ago today without a word, several options exist - looking out the window you decide that that's where you want to do it. Sitting on the beach as the cold waters wash up next to you. You make yourself presentable, fixing your hair, putting on what good clothes you have, and put your knife deep in the folds of your pocket. -- The air is chilly, early fall bringing out your breath in long white clouds. Rounding the corner from your apartment onto the street you see your best friend, Jackson, heading towards you. He’s always been a protector of yours you suppose, the brother you never really had. When your single father would be too drunk to watch over you, he’d be there, taking your mind off of it all, just like she once did. Internally you groan, this is possibly the last person you wanted to see before you do this. He raises his hand, “Hey! Nicholas!”---------A.) Say nothing and press past him B.) Strike up a small conversation C.) Say hi but continue walkingD.) Other
>>44454326>B.) Strike up a small conversation Faking your way through social interactions is what you do when you're depressed.
>>44454326>B.) Strike up a small conversation
>>44454394Agreed, fake it and move along like normal.
>>44454326>B.) Strike up a small conversation Fake it till you make it.
You muster up whatever normalcy is left, raise your head to look him in the eye as he walks up to you, “Hey Jackson! How’s it going?” You say with some exuberance to hide your current intentions. “It’s going well, just got off work, same ole grind,” He puts his hands in his pocket, rummaging for something, “One second and I’ve got a… here it is!” He pulls the hand out from the jacket, a small poorly wrapped box is handed to you. “Happy birthday Nick!” He smiles and pulls you in to a hug, a tear forms in your eye but you quickly wipe it away. “Go ahead, open it” he says releasing you. You half-heartedly tear at the paper, a watch lies inside, not fancy by any means, but definitely something Jackson would not normally be able to afford. He smiles, “You’ve always been talking about having a nice watch, thought you’d like it.” You’re quickly getting caught up with emotion, panicking that you might begin to cry and cause him to be concerned. ---A.) Thank him, and make an excuse to leave quickly.B.) The emotion is too much, but play it off as the thoughtfulness getting to youC.) Distance yourself from him, act unimpressed, give a half-hearted thanksD.) Write-in
>>44454635B.) The emotion is too much, but play it off as the thoughtfulness getting to you
>>44454635D.) If we're planning suicide here I feel like that would be the most reasonable response.
>>44454635Aww, poor guy.A.) fastest way to leave without getting suspicious
>>44454635>B.) The emotion is too much, but play it off as the thoughtfulness getting to you
“Thanks man, I really appreciate it,” you quickly take the watch out and clasp it around your wrist, admiring quickly and showing Jackson, “I have to get going, got a date down at Maren’s.” You give a fake grin and he returns it with a smile. “My man! Don’t fuck her too quick, get to know her name atleast,” He laughs, you can’t bring yourself to pretend to be that happy so you grin slightly, “I’ll see you later then, best give me all the details yeah?” He playfully hits you in the shoulder and walks past you, the fake grin melts as fast as it took him to leave, dropping the box on the ground and you continue walking, several minutes from the coast. ---The salty air feels so nice around you as you climb down the rocks to a private area you used to use as kids, first to play pretend, later on to take dates and get away with life’s more illegal substances, to the place you were planning on proposing to her one day. Your boots sink into the sand slightly with every step, the ruined wooden dock spans in front of you, you step onto the weathered wood and walk several feet out to the shattered ends of the planks, you sit down, and take in the sight before you. The gray sky spans infinitely before you, crashing waves lap at your feet, and match the same shade as the murky clouds. It’s honestly beautiful, a good last image. You pull the knife out of your pocket, a simple thing, a worn metal handle, you click the latch on the side and the blade pops out, the color is fade don some parts of the metal, but the edge you spent a few hours sharpening looks almost menacing. You raise the blade to your throat, a thin line of blood starts from the contact with the razor, you are about to press it deeper, to end it all, before you hear her voice. “Are you fucking mental?!” (cont.)
>>44455131You drop the blade, it falls in the water beneath you. You turn and see her. Elizabeth. Standing at the steps of the dock staring at you. Brunette hair cascades down her shoulders, she looks gorgeous, standing there in a simple outfit of tight jeans and a coat. ---A.) Say nothing. You must be crazy. B.) “What… How? Is it you?”C.) “Why are you here?”D.) Write-in
The plot thickensB.)He's prob crazy but might as well make sure
>>44455156>B.) “What… How? Is it you?”
“What… How? Is it you?” You sputter, quickly rising to your feet. She has a serious but concerned look on her face. “Yes, it’s me. Now come here before that damn pier drops you in the frozen water.” She sounds almost annoyed at you, chastising you like a child. You stand still, still incredulous at your former lover’s existence. This is becoming too much for you, panic quickly fills your mind, and tears begin falling. The water is cold enough to kill you, being this deep it would take a miracle to get you out with the heavy clothing you wear. You don’t want this hallucination to stop you. You take a step back, aiming for the water and debris beneath you. You feel the sensation of falling backwards, before you suddenly jerk to a stop and banging your ehad on the side of the wood, nearly knocking you out but not quite. She’s holding you over the edge, dragging you back up. She brings you to your feet, weakly you stand in front of her. “Why are you here?” You mutter into her shoulder as she helps you walk to the shore. “To protect you. Come on, you’re going to rest then we’re going to talk.” She wipes the blood from your head and neck, and leads you up the rocky path to the surface. She puts you in a car, and you pass out. Waking up, you dimly recognize Jackson’s bedroom, messy but kempt as any bachelor in their early twenties would keep it. You hear them talking, Elizabeth and Jackson in the other room. You get to your feet, and pad your way out into the hall where they stand. “How could you do this to him? Do you know how badly he felt when you left-“ Jackson abruptly stopped seeing you in the doorway. “Nick! Buddy, are you okay? The welt on your temple doesn’t look fun.”You raise your hand and feel your head, yup, big sore bump. A.) “I’m fine. But she needs to leave, now.”B.) “Why the fuck are you here?!”C.) Stay silent, see what she says first.D.) Write-in
>>44455515B.)And I noone gonna mention she just lifted a grown ass man out of the ocean
>>44455515Bumpin for you OP, people should eventually come around
>>44456074>>44456046>>44455870>>44455729Going to need a tie-breaker
>>44456154>>44456074>>44456176You say nothing, staring at Elizabeth with confusion, hurt, and anger filling your eyes. Crossing your arms you lean back against the doorway. And you nod your answer to Jackson.“O- okay then.” He says, turning to look at Elizabeth, “How did he even get hurt?”You open your mouth to interject, but quickly Elizabeth says “He tried killing himself, ended up slipping and hitting his head when I stopped him.” The curt answer shocks both of you, Jackson runs a hand through his hair confused, “I don’t know what is going on here, but you two need to talk this out. I’ll be in the living room.” He mutters as he opens a door, walks through, and shuts it. Elizabeth looks at you, the hardened look softening quickly to a look of guilt. “I have somewhere we can go. To explain what happened…” She says, her voice soft. Curiosity fills you, and you simply follow her as she walks out the door. Back in her car, you’ve been driving, now on the edge of Seattle heading into deeper wooded areas. She pulls over on an in descript road. “This will sound very odd,” her voice pierces the tension in the car, “but please blindfold yourself.” She hands you a bag made of a black cloth, thin enough to breathe through, and soft to the touch. A.) Do as she says.B.) Refuse.C.) Write-In
>>44456309c) Ask why.
>>44456381Seconding, if she doesn't blow the fuck up because seriously we just tried to kill ourselves over her
>>44456381 good point "Why would I do that?" You ask her, holding the bag. This day gets more and more confusing every second. She shuffles uncomfortably."You won't understand how we get to our destination, you'll just have to trust me. But it is for your safety, I swear. This place we're going, it'll explain where I've been and why I'm back."She rambles out. You can tell that she's being truthful.A.) Put the bag over your headB.) RefuseC.) Write-in
>>44456524>CDid you get blindfolded when you were taken wherever it is we're going
>>44456524>CWhat makes you safe?
>>44456586>>44456560"What makes you safe? Were you blindfolded when you went wherever we're going?"The questions make her shift in her seat slightly. "No. I wasn't. The circumstances were different from yours. I'm safe because I live there now. Hopefully one day you will too." She wrings her hands in her lap. "I know you're hurt. But I will make this better."A.) HoodB.) Refuse hoodC.) Write-in I love players when the write-in is used! Already looking forward to the future of this quest.
>>44456641>BWe were ready to die a bit ago, I'm willing to take this risk.
>>44456641(Last question I swear)Will I be trapped for a year there too?
>>44456671"Will I be gone for a year too? Like you?" You mutter, emotions welling to the surface slightly. "No. We will come back soon, within a few hours."
>>44456641>C)Is the knife still with us? If yes, pick a moment when she isn't looking and pierce a bag at the place where our right eye should be. If there's no chance of that happening, >A)
>>44456708Alright, hood up
>>44456723Knife fell in the ocean.>>44456746You pull the soft cloth over your head, she wasn’t kidding, you can’t see shit out of this. “Okay,” you hear her say as the car door opens, “Take my hand and follow me.” You take her grip and she helps you out of the car, and you start walking. “Liz… Why did you leave me?” You croak out as your voice breaks slightly, her grip tightens around your hand as she pulls you forward, you can hear leaves crunching under foot. “It will all make sense soon Nick, I swear. Now hold on to my shoulders. Tight.” She moves in front of you and you grip on. Suddenly, you feel weightless, air rushes past you, and continues this way for several minutes. You try to get words out, but you simply can’t hear past the roaring wind. Suddenly, you stop, your feet find solid ground. “I’m going to vomit,” You say as you rip the hood off and fall to your knees, you gag but thankfully nothing comes out. You notice the grass is very green here, unlike what it should be for fall in this part of the world. Slowly your senses realize more, it’s warm first of all, far too warm to wear a jacket. You raise your eyes, it was dark when you got in the car, but now? It’s dim like late afternoon, the sky holding an orange tint of a sunset. A.) “Where are we?”B.) Explore the area around you.C.) “WHAT WAS TH-“ Vomit more.D.) Write-in
>>44456956>A.) “Where are we?”
>>44456984Standing shakily, you observe the area around you. In the distance, a vibrant forest expands as far as you can see, bright green leaves, and colorful plants dot the ground. Behind you lies a large sprawling city, buildings rise high, notably made of stone or wood, with some modern looking buildings interlaced between them. In the middle of this city rises a massive cathedral, ornamented with colorful glass, large statues, and metal structures rising into the sky reflecting the orangeish red light back onto the city. You walk forward to the city. "Where are you going? Well... Fair enough." She follows you, walking by your side. A.) "What is this place?"B.) "Where do you want to go?"C.) "Well? Are you going to explain what happened to you?"D.) Write-inD.) Write-in
>>44457237>A.) "What is this place?"
>>44457237>C.) "Well? Are you going to explain what happened to you?"
>>44457272"What is this place?" You ask her as you walk side by side. "This is Eden." She says, you glance over to her. "Like Eden eden? What?" You ask her, confused as hell as to what's happening. "Eden. The Garden of Eden. The start of the world. Biblical Eden? Yes, but not the way the Christian faith knows it." She explains as you approach the edges of the city, "It's the place I've lived for the past year, I've been coming here since I was a young child. Spending my time between here and home." The Garden of Eden? Living here? Has she or yourself gone crazy? Your thoughts race as you try to comprehend what she says. Lost in your thoughts and questions you quickly notice that you've reached an entrance point, standing guard are two regal looking soldiers, dressed in modern military gear, body armor reminiscent of kevlar plates, but adorned with decorations that you could only describe as ancient, a helm with a plume of red cloth, leather adornments, and what seems like a sheathed sword hanging at their hips. They pay little to no notice as you and Elizabeth cross through the gate. Before you is a market of sorts, merchants and store fronts all over the place among a bustling crowd, following what you have noticed is a theme of this place, some dressed in modern dress, while other wore outfits from varying eras. "Will you finally explain what happened to you?" You blurt out finally. A woman passes the two of you and stops suddenly, sniffing the air. (cont.)
>>44457530"You, you smell good," The older woman says as she leans in close and creepily sniffs your soldier. You nearly scream as she opens her mouth and a pair of fangs reveal themselves. Quickly Elizabeth pushes you behind her, saying with a firm voice "He's my human, leave him be." The old woman looks annoyed but walks away, the crowd seems to be heading towards a similar location, a stage towards the center of the market. "Human? Your human? What are you? A vampire like that thing?" You spill, thoughts and questions throwing you into near vertigo of confusion. "Yes." She says, pulling you close, she hugs you and you can do nothing but fall into it, "I am a vampire Nicholas." She strokes your hair, "Do not be scared, as long as you stay with me you'll be protected. This is where I went, after my father turned me."A loud noise of a microphone being cleared draws your attention to the stage, on it stand 7 people, dressed in shockingly beautiful silver garb, long robes for the men and tighter fitting dresses for the 3 women. "Your new Alpha class ladies and gentlemen" A speaker announces.A.) Start moving back towards the exit, "Can we talk in a less... Vampire filled spot?"B.) "A vampire? What does that mean Elizabeth?"C.) "Is this whole city made of Vampires?"D.) Write-in
>>44457548B.) "A vampire? What does that mean Elizabeth?"C.) "Is this whole city made of Vampires?"
>>44457635Seconding, this, alsod) Point at the stage: "What is that all about?"
>>44457548>C.) "Is this whole city made of Vampires?"
I vote we take the Bram Stoker approach the moment we get away from these monstrosities
>>44457733Currently I propose we take Tsukihime approach.Let's see how dangerous these creepers are and how much of a snowflake Liz is.
>>44457675>>44457635"A vampire? Elizabeth, what does that mean?" You quickly ask her as you break out of her embrace, standing closely though as to not attract the attention of another passer-by. "You know what a vampire is Nick. Everyone does," She laughs as if it were a joke, you don't take it lightly and she can tell you're pissed. "Fine, fine. One, my kind is immortal, like the stories, two, we drink blood to sustain ourselves, three, we are stronger quicker etcetera than the average person, but not by insane amounts, but enough that it's noticeable." She explains holding a finger out for each number. "Oh, and no, we aren't afraid of the sun, and garlic is still a relish for food.""And this whole city? Vampires?" You ask, all of this information making you curious enough to forget the pain for once. She nods, "Yup, every single one. To be fair I'm breaking the law by bringing you here unregistered, humans are illegal beyond our borders except in rare circumstances." "And that, what;s that about?" You quickly ask pointing towards the stage. (cont.)
>>44457890"New vampires, it's a big deal. Every decade Eden welcomes new vampires into the fold, and this woman we call an Auger tests their blood for... purity, we'll it. The 'purer'," she makes air quotations with her hands, "you are, the stronger you are naturally, and are then split into a relevant class. The purest go with Alpha, hence the people on the stage, they often grow to be leaders or key military officials within Eden." As she is explaining this, the beautiful creatures leave the stage and a crowd of others dressed in a variety of clothing step up, multitudes larger than alpha. "And those are the Beta, strong in their own right, but vastly weaker than Alpha. That continues down the greek alphabet int he same fashion, Alpha being best, Beta being weaker, Gamma being weaker still, and ending with Delta which make up the weakest." This onslaught of strangeness is giving you a headache. > Ask question (Write-in)> Begin to leave New Eden[Spoiler] Everyone is bound to have questions at this point, so I'll answer a lot and then progress the story [/spoiler]
>>44457904Annnnd spoiler fail, go me
>>44457904What class are you? And where do you get blood from? OOC: Can we hunter on this shit cause I am instinctively not trusting any inch of this place
>>44457904Which letter do you fall under?This is too good to be true, what're the drawbacks?Were you always a vamp? Like, before you left?
>>44457904>askSo what do you plan to turn me into one?>delta is weakestWhat, no Omega?>strongFuck it I wanna see her show us how strong she is, act like you're still not convinced because well, to be fair...>eden, alphas, etcWhat's with this structure? Who made it? If they are truly immortal why do they welcome more people?Why Eden? Is god a vampire? Did vampires come before humanity or..?How do they feed here do they have human farms or what?What about silver, how can they wear that, or is that just against specters and werewolfs.FUCK are there werewolves and ghosts too?What about antivampire?What reasons would a human have to be allowed in here officially anyway?How powerful are they outside of this place too (the vampire leaders)?
>>44457904Questions overflowing. For now, let's start with the most important.>Why are you showing me all this?
>>44458005Omega are the unspeakables I would bet. Like the Harijans
>>44458005>>44457904Oh yeah and:>how many are there?>what is the oldest vampire like? Is it Adam? is Elvis a vampire?
>>44458079Oh that'd be pretty intersting actually.
>>44458090The oldest is probably Cain.
>>44458115That happens often in fiction.>>44457904What are the rules for vampires revealing themselves to humans, and do many humans know about all this?
>>44457971>>44457990"And what do you fall under?" You look at Elizabeth, she grins at you."Alpha. I skipped this ceremony to find you. I can't explain why but believe me it was important to do." >>44457990"And the drawbacks of being a vampire?" You continue, "That... Is much more difficult to explain right now. To say it quickly we're forced to reside here the majority of our lives, among other more serious drawbacks that would be impossible to explain right now. And the need for blood, of course." >>44458005 Holy fuck dude, gonna keep this cut down to the essentials "Do you plan to turn me into one?"She shakes her head, "That will be your choice, which we will explain when we're back in Seattle. ""How do you feed on blood...?" This was the one thing that genuinely scared you. "Blood banks in the human world. Countless groups run those so Eden has enough supply.""Why stop at Delta?"She coughs, "Weird question, but it doesn't, special classifications exist for other letters. Zeta for example, determines that a vampire will operate in the priesthood of Eden. Something that I am forbidden of explaining to a human." "Is God.. real?" You are firing questions out like a Gatling gun at this point. But she seems to keep in stride. "Not in the way you know, a 'god' exists, but he is not human or vampire, and beyond that the priesthood doesn't tell us much." She explains, the group on stage changes again, announced as the Gamma class, the stage is overflowing at this point. >>44458020"And why are you showing me this?"You ask her, incredulous that this is even real, "To explain that I didn't just abandon you." >>44458147"Can you reveal yourselves to humans?""Of course, but..." She coughs, "There are safeguards against it, I refuse to explain that right now."
>>44458090"Who's the oldest vampire?" "The Oldest vampire... We don't and aren't allowed to speak of her much. She is not in Eden, and will never be in Eden."
>>44457990"And were you always a vampire? Like, before you left?""No. But I was always aware of their existence. "
>>44458229Lillith maybe?>>44458260>was always awarehuh
Gonna interject and continue with the story, inc.
Interesting quest so far.
>>44458219Head overflows with questions>You have priests? And military? Who do you worship? Who do you wage wars with?>Why do you vampires isolate yourself from the human world?>You mention that this or that is "forbidden" quite often. Who is the one doing the forbidding?>Where did you vampires come from? Evolve? Came from space? Cursed by god?>Do we have to discuss this in the middle of a street?
Your barrage of questions finally seems to get to Liz's head, and she raises a finger and tells you to shush. Grabbing you by the arm, you head back towards the gate leading out of Eden. The crowd seems to be focused on the stage back towards the market, so you quickly make your way unnoticed out of the city. The guards stay still as you pass by, as statue-like as when you first came in. Elizabeth brandishes the bag again, you put it on without much argument, grab onto her shoulders, and the same feeling of terrifying vertigo engulfs you. Soon you're standing, and pull the bag off. Right next to the car, Elizabeth jumps in the driver side, and you get in. ---Soon you're back at Jackson's home. The drive back being a blur of fear, confusion, fascination and anger. Parked outside on the curb of the small house, Elizabeth faces you. "I'm afraid you're going to have to make a choice now. Will you join me in Eden?" She flatly states this while looking in your eyes, no buildup, nothing. You stare at her open mouthed, confused and unsure of what to say. A.) Yes, anything to be with you.B.) What will happen if I accept?C.) And if I say no?D.) Write-in
>>44458529>D)Wowowow calm down sis, you were apart for a year, dude's barely got any info and now you spring this on him, wow..Does he have some time to think about it?And more importantly, how long can she stay among humans here or is this a "I must go back NOW" thing?What -will- happen?
>>44458529Both b & cMy body is readyAntibatman is coming
>>44458529>I want to be with you again but>B
>>44458589"Hold up Liz, stop. Stop right now," frustration is clearly apparent in your voice, "Do I have zero time to think about this? You came out of nowhere after abandoning me, I was committing suicide this morning, you come back, you reveal an ENTIRE world, and now I have to become a fucking vampire?" You're verging on yelling at this point. She takes it well strangely, probably expecting this reaction. "No, you will not have time to decide. I have to return for my training, and will not be able to leave Eden for years afterwards. You have to decide now, and if not, we will probably never see eachother again, to be blunt."
>>44458529B, C, and D - What's the hurry? Why must I choose right this moment?
>>44458712Then leave me a way to get there on my own. You were coming and going there as a human, weren't you? Then I can do that as well.
>>44458712Yeah fuck it let's do this.Worst comes to worst, if we dislike things we can try and leave, then we turn into this guy to hunt monsters you must become one
>>44458694>>44458643"What will happen if I accept? If I say no?" You ask, exhausted from this day. 'If you accept, we will begin the process, simple biting like you hear from fantasy, you'll be in pain for hours, then you'll die, and awaken as a vampire.""If you refuse, you will never hear from me again, as I will be forced to stay in Eden for many many years."
>>44458759Ask her if there are other creatures from myth. Like werewolves?
>>44458759I say we accept. I am curious as to where the quest would go if we said no, but just jumping into the abyss seems even riskier.
>>44458759Ask her is she is happy that she became a vampire. Also >>44458746
>>44458833Also, if I absolutely have to give yes or no question, then it's no.Let's not take the easy way out. We'll get there and break in on our own, that's even cooler.Besides, vampires suck.
>>44458858Would it really be fitting to be apart from her for one year then say no when she asks this, and decide to go kill vampires because your ex who you still love is now one? I mean, wew lad
>>44458746>>44458746"You came as a human, why couldn't I when I decide?" Elizabeth sighs, "You won't understand it much. But someone was taking a vested interest in preparing me for this world, no that is not common, I cannot tell you more."
>>44458895And where exactly did you see all this in my post?I'm probably the only guy in this thread who doesn't want to go Stoker mode.We find a way to get into Eden on our own, get inside, learn more, then either vampirize ourselves or just keep making conjugal visits. Everyone's happy.
>>44458962>everyone is happyAside from the vampires that won't allow it or will eat us like the old lady wanted>conjugal visitsWhat would make you think she'd like for the dude to make up large trouble>we will go back there on our ooown!Yeah well, while that is possible with lots of research, MAYBE, you have to consider that she said "you wouldn't understand how to get there" and the whole ordeal was strange so I'm guessing it's not so simple and would take a long time.And perhaps she'd even move on considering she has eternity and he said no.>but then we vampirize ourselves in there!Consider all of what I said then rethink what you just said.This is a serious case of wishful thinking.
She begins rubbing her temples, "I'm sorry this has been so difficult for you Nicholas. But tell me you'll come with me. Please. You need to understand that this is the life you need, the life you were about to throw away doesn't exactly seem pleasant, now does it?" You grip the car door, your knuckles are turning white at this point - A.) Accept the offer.B.) Refuse.
>>44458994>>44458962And one more here because it's fun:>we learn moreFrom what are you gonna sneak around the vampire filled city and steal their books?Are you gonna go up to one and ask stupid questions?This is some serious lack of thought for a "plan".>>44459007>A.) Accept the offer.
>>44459007Curious what would happen to the quest if we said no...>B)
>>44459048Too difficult, I want to explore the vampy world,>A.)
>>44459048She might force us. Or another player enters the scene. Opposing side or something.
>>44459007B) Refuse>>44458994>>44459016Well, for one I don't like be taken for an idiot. That "you wouldn't understand" managed to become really tiresome for the last hour. Maybe she sould try explaining instead of going all "know-it-all-but-won't-tell-you".>This is some serious lack of thought for a "plan".At least I have a plan. You vote for getting a cat in the bag with a whole laundry list of unknown drawbacks, implications and possible catches.
A.) Seriously this sounds so much better
>>44459070Better than having absolutely nothing of a plan that makes absolutely no sense and has no consistence with anything show so far, and despite all that you play up this so called "plan" of yours.I already said I want to go in and understand what is up through the inside, unlike a certain guy who wants to infiltrate vampire city as a human and somehow get information there, and who thinks Liz will somehow like that and find it cool that you refused only to make a half-baked excuse of a plan to infiltrate shit and probably cause trouble for her and you, because yeah that's totally gonna work.
>>44459094>>44459065>>44459016A is gonna win here, if I let voting continue samefagging will be everywhere.
>>44459097And as a note, I love that y'all are debating details like this. As a writer that makes me love presenting these choices.
>>44459070Oh and to be honest, I'd be all up for not going if I knew people would be opting for something more sensible such as outside research and not trying to go into vampire city.If you want in on the vamp city at least suggest something more sensible like finding an alternative sponsor...
>>44459097No, not better.For one, you may be going in as a lowly delta. With no way of keeping contact with Liz, but with a whole new luggage of bloodthirst, other unspecified drawbacks, as well as restraints placed on you by new society.Next, you can't talk about consistence with the character that is formed by votes from collective hivemind. There's no predefined consistence, or QM is a railroading faggot.I didn't make "half-baked excuses", I straight up tell her: "Give me a way of keeping contact with you without this baggage, We both know there is one." Besides, she's an alpha, she's already top dog in that city. We can't make that much trouble.
>>44459167That's fucking goes without saying. Or do I have to spoonfeedl everything out for you?Unless she tells us something right now we can't get to the place we might as well have flown through the air to reach. First outside research then getting in.
>>44459167>Oh and to be honest, I'd be all up for not going if I knew people would be opting for something more sensible such as outside research and not trying to go into vampire city.Then why didn't you opt it yourself?
>>44459176>Give me a way of keeping contact with you without this baggage, We both know there is oneYeah but this isn't what you suggested in the other post, you literally said you wanted to - invade - the goddamn place without inside help, AND stay there gathering info. In a city. Of vampires.That is:1. fucking stupid2. fucking insane>it wouldn't make troubleOh right, because she is instantly top dog. That isn't how castes work, you still have an hierarchy within it and I doubt she could do as she pleases.Now if you or the other anon, whatever, went with something like:>let's stay out and see if we can arrange visits with heror>let's stay out and research things, then find a way to get in with legitimacy because why would we ever whant to sneak in a city WHERE EVERYONE WANTS TO DRINK YOUR FUCKING BLOOD and you have NO ALLIES>>44459191Yeah but explain to me why exactly do you think one human dude infiltrating a vampire city is going to fucking work?Specially when his only vampiric contact was denied... are you fucking kidding me? >hey look at me I'm a totally normal guy and BAM now I read some books and this somehow prepares me to infiltrate a city of bloodsuckers hahah so badass!The simple fact I have to point this out to you boggles my mind.
>>44459229Because I am reading other anons posts and if we stayed out we'd go with something retarded like that idiot who wants to invade a city filled with people who want to drink our blood.That'll totally work right guise? hahaha so smert!
>>44459233You don't need to point this all out, I knew that shit without you. I didn't elaborate for the same reason as you did not opt for the research proposition - the thread is effectively on timer.Congrats. We both wanted the same thing, but you sabotaged both of us. Hope you trip on your way from your machine when you get up.
>>44459290>you sabotaged both of us bwaahThen I am not talking to you, perhaps read the fucking comment chain because I'm shitting on the dude who wants to invade the city and stop replying to my comments with your inane shit, because it was never about what you wanted or what I wanted, it was about replying to another anon's idea.
>>44459290Meh, I believe opting out would've either forced her to show her hand and force us to go (she can probably do that), or we would've been contacted by someone else (maybe the reason they have a military).Either way, the quest continues. No need to let it get to you.
>>44459307Wait, are you retarded or just baiting? Same shit anyway.Brah, if you wanted B option, you should've voted for B option. If you wanted A option, then stop shitposting, like I'm about to do after this post. And wear a trip so I could recognise you.
>>44459360>if you wanted B optionI didn't say that, I said I could've agreed or liked the idea if it went somewhere sensible. As in, I wouldn't get butthurt about it.But instead I replied to an anon giving a very shitty idea.Which isn't you, so I don't fucking get why you keep replying. Just shut the fuck up, I don't give a shit if your vote was sensible or not, I was replying to another dude because I thought his idea was stupid, to the point where you said "You don't need to point this all out, I knew that shit without you.".So - you - stop shitposting and stop dropping in the middle of an entirely unrelated chain to drop your stupid "wisdom".
Well, if we're vamping, I vote we go Blade style. No rest for the wicked.
>>44459337Sorry guys I'm writing! This discussion had me interested so I keep going back to look.
>>44459426comic blade or movie blade?
>>44459390Man. Just in case you're not trolling and I do need to spell things out again - I'm that anon you're raging against. What I'm guilty of is poor choice of words, (because picking right ones for your non-first language when you're excied is not easy) and not being elaborative enough (because, again, time limit and I forget that some people on this site may be younger than 16, so you need to explain everything in minute detail or they just won't understand) . So, to drive the point again.>We both wanted the same thing, but you sabotaged both of us.
>>44459465>poor choice of wordsOkay so you either somehow confused infiltrate (as in enter without permission) with some other word. That is fine, it's okay to make mistakes, just don't make those stupid "muh underage kiddies don't get shit" comments because this is ome silly primary school level insult, if YOU were unable to explain your idea without making it sound like the most absurd shit ever then it's on you, not on people who read what you're writing for what it fucking is.>you sabotaged both of usNo, I am happy as it is. Either way would be fine as long as we did something more sensible than actual invasion of the place. Visits? I'm fine with that. Turning? Fine with that too.
>>44459508Cancel out that first either, don't know why that went there.>>44459465and have a tl;drIf you post something that smells like shit, sounds like shit, and seems like shit people will assume it's shit. So own it up
You let out a long sigh. She does have a point. Just earlier this day you were holding a knife to your throat, you had zero motivation to live. Fuck it. “Fine. I’ll do it.” You force out. A small fact dawns on you finally, “Why are we at Jackson’s?” She coughs, a slight blush follows, “The process will be… Difficult for you to process. Pain will be immense. Jackson… Knows very little about Vampires, I’ve educated him lightly, and he knows you will possibly become one. He offered to essentially hold your hand through the process. Keep your mind off of it.” (cont.)
>>44459536The two of you step out of the car, and head inside. Jackson seems solemn at best, how she convinced him to go through with this you will never understand, you are taken to a bedroom, clean sheets lay on the bed, and Elizabeth tells you to lay down. Elizabeth leaves the room, and Jackson looks you in the eyes, “Dude, this is insane. She told me what’s happening, and that it was your choice. I’m here for you buddy. She doesn’t want me talking to you much so let’s keep it hush hush –“as he says this Elizabeth walks back in. In her hands is a box, golden filigree covers the metal in designs that you have zero capability to understand. A small simple latch adorns it in the shape of apple, the more you look at the box, and the clearer some images become, reminiscent of childhood memories of hieroglyphics, some of an Asian origin, others of Arabic, a mishmash of random cultures scrawled across every surface of the thing. It has you fascinated, the whole world becomes centered on this one piece of art.You snap back to reality, suddenly you notice something, your arms and legs have become bound to the bed by thick metal chains, at this point panic sets in. Jackson has taken less of the look of a concerned friend, and more of a worker oddly obsessed with his tasks, beyond your vision he is clearly placing objects around you, some clearer than others: you see a large vase of some sort, a strange powder he continues to sprinkle around you, and the final object pulled from the box simply being a knife of obsidian. You struggle against the restraints and beg them to tell you what’s happening, but your pleas fall on deaf ears. (cont.)
>>44459544Elizabeth walks up to you with the knife, cutting your wrist and her own. The pain is not immediately debilitating, but you still cringe at the sight of so much blood nonetheless. The two wounds are placed upon eachother, and Liz begins chanting in some strange guttural language. Immediately it feels as if fire is originating from your wrist, spreading through your body as you convulse on the bed. Jackson holds the vase to the side of your head, and as your stomach churns you realize why. It’s a vomit bucket. Slowly the pain becomes existence, blurring out all other thought or consciousness, slowly your vision fades, the determined face of Liz slowly becomes darker and darker, and all at once you feel no pain in this endless void. ANNNNND that’s all for tonight folks, I’ll try running tomorrow around some time. Feel free to follow me on twitter @Emperor_of_QM And I’ll be archiving this shortly, thanks for following!
>>44459508Well, seeing how you reacted to all that I wasn't that off the mark. Anyway, seeing how this train goes not down the track that I'd be happy with, better hop off before I get even more upset about it or litter the thread any further. QM - godspeed in any case. That particualr anon - suck cocks.
>>44459553Cry more you fucking fag, jesus christ man you make one stupid idea that you acknowledge is stupid and yet you insist that "you were only pretending!"You also take to calling me a kid and telling me I suck cocks? At least make actual arguments instead of crying about evil shitposters.That or stop changing your reasoning mid-air to try and dodge the accusation that you're a fucking fag that makes stupid suggestions and can't even own it up.
>>44459551Hop you liked the shitstorm. It happens sometimes, see ya!
>>44459551Thanks so much Sun, really enjoyed this quest and look forward to more>>44459553Bruh this will still be interesting, and I can totally see us still rebelling at some point if we wish>>44459585Calm tf down anon
>>44459597I am calm, I am just insulting someone who can't even have the guts to admit to his own shit.Dude, he said he wanted to invade the city, then he said he didn't and just worded it poorly, proceeded to blame his poor wording on me being a kid, and kept telling me I am a shitposter, with a final touch of "you suck cocks", while crying the quest didn't end up exactly where he wanted.Meanwhile all I did was tell him his idea was stupid and I'd be fine with A or B as long as we didn't go with that stupid fantasy of his.I feel entitled to at least telling him to fuck off.
>>44459621Eh, you're not wrong.
>>44459621But on another note, I am really curious to know what group we'll be put in to.
