>>46461023The sight and the environment of the metro have become a bit unnerving for you now.Having basically spent most of your time awake in the asphyxiating underground system of this world probably equates spending a day in prison.Except that the people in prison are probably a tad more agreeable. A bit further down the wagon, a guy is loudly having sex with a girl who’s just as loud as he is.The Priest is plainly pretending not to notice, but the stupidity coming out of their mouths is too much for you to ignore them.It’s like they’re uttering profanities and obscenities for the twisted sake of just uttering them.Normally you wouldn’t have a problem with that, or with sex in general, but this… this something else.“This is something else”, the Priest echoes your thoughts.“Hm?”“See, they’re hentai characters”“Hentai?”“Uh… porno cartoons”“Aaah!”, you nod. “So… chicks with dicks”“Y-yeah, well it’s not the case here. This is just a rape”“A rape? But the girl is begging for more, I can clearly hear her”“That’s not how rape works in this world.”To stunned to reply, you just nod again and crawl back inside your thoughts.‘A warrior whose heart is pure. I am sure the guy at the tavern will do just fine’.Speaking of the tavern, you’re reminded of the fact that reaching it at night can be potentially dangerous.The Priest ignores it, but there’s at least one powerful ‘heretic’ roaming the streets at night. Granted, one that wasn’t exactly hostile at you, but nevertheless an enemy.Who is your enemy in these circumstances? At least one group here is lying. It’s either the Priest and his Goddess, or the black-robed witch who cornered you a few days ago. There’s no way to tell who’s is who, especially because the fuckers down the wagon are so goddamn noisy.
>>46461038It’s becoming so unbearable that you can hardly hear yourself think. The Priest is shrinking on his own seat, by now walking the narrow line between sanity and madness. You, on the other hand, have other plans.>Stare the idiots until they get uncomfortable>try to talk to the Priest to help him out of his embarrassment>get out at the next stop and wait for the next metro.
>>46461076>>get out at the next stop and wait for the next metro.Staring won't do anything, and talking just has us taste the foul air.Sup Author. When do we get the token love interest?
>>46461261>love interest>In my questsAnon...
>>46461284I didn't know you did other quests. And now I know what to expect.
>>46461306 I will blogpost very briefly and under spoiler so that people will be just able to dodge this.I handled a successful quest before and a couple of failures. This quest is pretty much by testing ground for launching something larger that will be connected to my first quest
>>46461076>try to talk to the Priest to help him out of his embarrassment
>>46461076>try to talk to the Priest to help him out of his embarrassment>>46461350 So we'll never have a cute loli dragon wafiu? ;-; Why live?
>>46461544 One was related to Fate/. Two others were homebrews
>>46461076>get out at the next stop and wait for the next metro.
>>46461261>>46461366>>46461420>>46462032aaaand now we need a tiebreaker.
>>46462072roll a 1d2, giving each one an option and then go with it?
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>464620721 is get out2 is talk
“Come on, Priest. Don’t let those faggots get to you”, you attempt to comfort the Priest. “Let’s just get out at the next stop and take the next train”As soon as the metro stops, you get out together with the Priest.The atmosphere is oddly uncomfortable, once again.There are no couples noisily having sex around this time, so what is it?Perhaps it’s because of your whereabouts. “Priest, where are we here?”“If my instinct doesn’t fail me, we’re far enough from the City to be pretty much outside of the ‘normal life’ area, but still close enough to the Shounen sector”“Meaning?”“This is roughly the ‘Dark Shounen’ section’ ““Ugh, who thought it was a good idea to call it like that?”“No one in particular. It’s just that the archetypes living here usually dwell in a world which is created to appeal to male teenagers, but which lacks the usual happy-go-lucky feeling usually associated with the genre”“I see. So something for grown boys, in short”“Correct. You might even call it Seinen, which means adult. But then again not all Seinen archetypes are built to appeal to a male demographic”You nod, positive that you will retain 0% of whatever the Priest just told you.You appreciate his efforts, it’s just that you’re too new to understand. Can the location be the reason for your ominous feelings? You feel… observed. Not in a good way either. The next train won’t be here before 15 minutes. Understandable, in the real world metros go around even more slowly during the night, if they’re not closed at all.There is no one around you, except for the Priest of course.So what is it that is irking you? Could it be the thought of the archetypes living here?‘Jeez, I can totally picture them ‘I am a mature character designed to appeal to mature people, thus I am better than you!’ You take a deep breath. You don’t like this weebshit, but unmotivated hate is just not your style.
>>46462416There is something wrong. You’re certain. You check the clock once again: 10 minutes till the next train. You have to figure out what’s wrong before then.>Check the ring in the bathroom, where the Priest can’t see you>Propose the Priest to get out and have a look around>Ignore it. It will go away when you go away.
>>46462430>Propose the Priest to get out and have a look around
>>46462430>Check the ring in the bathroom, where the Priest can't see you
>>46462430>>Propose the Priest to get out and have a look around
>>46462573>>46462561>>46462499“The atmosphere here is oppressive, Priest. Can we take a walk outside?”The Priest gives you a perplexed look. “Sure thing. Are you anxious to see how a grim world looks like?”“Not really. But it feels like any place is better than here, right now.”You make your way outside. You still have around 10 minutes, hopefully it will be enough to get some fresh air and clear your mind.The air outside is pleasantly chilly, a breeze passing through what looks like an evergreen forest.It’s strange: the station is in the middle of nowhere. Well, perchance this place holds a special significance for the locals. As for you, it looks like the kind of place you’d never take a step into.It’s not that you hate the outsides, it’s just that the outsides are much less entertaining when you have to fight to survive.“I’ve been here a couple of times before, in my old mission days”, The Priest says to break the silence. “Folks here are ok. You could say they’re comparable to a certain acquaintance of ours”“Oh, yes. The Edge Knight”“Indeed. I know you’re not fond of him, but people here are probably the least likely to turn into heretics in the entire world”“Oh? And on the basis of what?”“Well, you see, characters here are obsessed with the idea of making the most difficult choice. What this means is that they would put up a show and pretend to be ‘engulfed by the darkness’ or they would spout non-stop about evil and betrayal, but they wouldn’t demand worship from the Outers”“So it’s just an act.”“Indeed. They act dark to look cool, but they’re good people on the inside. Must be the Shounen heritage”Then, a chill runs down your spine. It’s not cold. You’re just assailed by a terrible premonition.
>>46463076‘Get out of here. Get out of here’. All your instincts are screaming out against you. The forest looks every second more minacious. And yet, another part of you is protesting at the thought of going back underground. You’re torn, and you feel time is against you. It’s time to make a decision>Leave at once>Stay>Ask the Priest what to do
>>46463099>Leave at onceRUN BITCH RUNNNNNN
>>46463099>>Ask the Priest what to doWat do?
>>46463099>>Leave at once"Suddenly I'm reminded about the not-so-good kind of these people I read about in my world. Let's go before we get caught up in someone's demon summoning circle."
>>46463099>Leave at once
OP where are you?
>>46463669I think the edge killed him.
>>46463707I was writing.“Very well, it’s been wonderful”, you stutter. “But now let’s get back, we wouldn’t want to miss the train, now would we?”You hurry inside. Your pace is faster than you’d like it to be, and the Priest is quick to notice it.“Something worrying you?”“I have no idea. The whole forest had an ominous feeling. I can’t quite put my finger on it. I just felt I had to run, and get away from there as soon as possible”“Wise move, onii-chan”.A sweet and acute voice surprises you. You wince in surprise, and turn around to see a kid dressed as a magical girl, standing right next to you.She wasn’t here before, so it looks like she materialized out of nowhere. Wait, she?“Hey, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me”, you say, pointing your right index to her in accusation.She looks at you in self-satisfaction, an expression so smug you barely can contain the urge to punch the lights out of her.“My my, aren’t we butthurt today?” she laughs at you mockingly. “Just because you got duped by a trap, it doesn’t mean all magical girls are secretly boys, onii-chan”“Stop with that onii-chan. It’s not cute, it’s just annoying.”Before you can utter even more word, she is holding you by the neck of your shirt, her face dangerously close.“Oh yes? Make me, onii-chan. Again, not all magical girls-or, in your case, boys-are accommodating as you think they are. I suggest YOU watch your tongue, onii-chan”.She releases you. “You’d do better not to forget it, you colossal faggot”“Right”, you mutter in anger. “What was that about? The forest, I mean”“Oh you were just about to die. Apparently you’re not as stupid as you look like, and you could save yourself. A pity, we have no use for folks like you here”
>>46463669sorry, meant to quote this guy here.“What a wonderful magical girl you are. I am sure you just go around spreading love and friendship, don’t you?”Her gaze starts reeking of murderous intent all of a sudden. There was mockery before, then there was challenge, but this is outright thirst for blood. She stares right into you as she talks.“Do not mention my job or my job conduit, here or elsewhere, onii-chan. Or I might have to beat you into a pulp”You nod. This is by far the worst magical girl you met, and it’d be a blessing if you didn’t have to meet her again.>So, what are you doing here all alone?>Where are you headed to?>Wait for the train’s arrival.
>>46463744>>Wait for the train’s arrival.what a right cunt.
>>46463744Oh joy. The first magical baby girl I meet that doesn't want to spread rainbows with every breath is an edgy dipshit. Come on priest, let's leave before we get assaulted by undead candy canes and murderous puppy dogs.
>>46463744>Wait for the train's arrivalDo not engage the psychopathic loli
>>46463744>Wait for the train’s arrival.
>>46463788>>46463783>>46463766Called. I am gonna visit the WC and start writing right away.
>>46464043You decide that ignoring her is probably the best policy. After all, you’ve nothing to gain from this, might as well just wait for the train.‘The first magical girl isn’t a girl. The second magical girl has anger issues. I am starting to think that this is not mere coincidence, there people just are your average magical ‘girl’ ‘“Oi, onii-chan, are you ignoring me? That’s not polite”.That word. That word. That fucking word. Why does she have to call you like that. Anything else would be fine.Well maybe except faggot. Come to think of it she’s already called you that once.“I bet you’re fantasizing of having hot, steamy sex with your trapboy. Isn’t that so? As soon as you will get home, he’ll greet you with a wide smile. ‘Welcome home, Onii-chan! How was the trip?’”‘She’s seriously taking this a bit too far. Doesn’t she have evil monsters to slay? Friends in danger to save? Former playmates turned villainous to redeem? Revealing costumes to wear to get pedophiles all horny?’“Then you will wrap your arms around him in a warm embrace, and whisper him ’I am home, my sweetheart. Please, let me make sweet love to you’’N-no, onii-chan, please…! That’s… That’s forbidden!’‘But I’ve wanted you for so long!’‘Me… me too, Onii-chan! I wanted you for a long time too!’”“Alright, stop, you have my attention”“Eheh, you’re so fun to tease, onii-chan”“Could you PLEASE stop calling me like that, please, just stop, I can’t stand the sound of that anymore”“Onii-chan, onii-chan, onii-chan”“Oh yeah, very mature. I applaud your behavior”“Why, thank you very much”“You know what, I think you’re evil. Yeah, not like, Hitler-evil, more like high-school evil”“Oh? Is that so?”
>>46464368She turns serious all of a sudden, as if she instantly aged and gained wisdom in the process“But you see, sometimes the Hair of the Dog is the best medicine”“The Hair of the Dog?”“Yeah. You’re hunting heretics, aren’t you? Don’t bother denying it, a Priest and an Outer going together on pilgrimage, I don’t think it could get any more obvious”>Were you following us?>What do you know about the heretics?>How did you recognize who I am?
>>46464384>How did you recognize who I am?
>>46464384I notice you lied about me suddenly dying. Why should I believe you now?
>>46464384>Were you following us?
>>46464516which one should I count this one as?
>>46464384>Were you following us?Again, a real bitch.
>>46464764How did you recognize me.
Since we couldn't find a consensus, I decided to try and make everyone happy.You shrug. “No point in denying it then. Although I don’t have anything against those whom you call heretics. Our interests just seems to be mismatched”She nods heavily. “I know that much. That’s why you were summoned here by the Goddess, I presume”“How do you know that? How do you know who I am? Were you following us?”“Not for long. I was with you when you went to talk with the guardian in the Shounen sector, albeit you couldn’t see me, I guess. I realized since the second I saw you that you were an Outer, onii-chan: no denizen of this world is as clumsy and clueless as you are”“How very observant of you”“Indeed, indeed. And so I thought: what could an Outer be doing here? That’s the method I’ve been taught. Observe. Analyze. Then act. And now I thought it was a moment as good as another to act.”“Why should I believe you? After all, you claimed I was on the verge of death, and nothing happened”“You must have misunderstood. You were on the verge of death in that forest. A Dire Wolf was about to descend upon you, a kind of monster only Main Characters can hope to defeat. An Outer is powerful, but he won’t stand a chance against such a creature”“You didn’t answer me yet. Why should I trust you?”“Quite impatient, aren’t you, onii-chan? I am not telling you to trust me blindly. My point was entirely another: sometimes a lesser evil is necessary to defeat a bigger one.”“Bigger one… the heretics?”“Heretics is a term I use, but I much prefer the term ‘Idols’, since they propose themselves as object of worship.”
>>46465300(check them)The rumble of the incoming metro echoes in the small station. “I will be going ahead. You take the next one, it’s safer if we split up”The doors of the train open and the magical girl steps in with a hop.“Wait, what if I need to talk with you again? Where will I find you?”“Have no fear: we will find you when the time comes to march under one banner” She winks. “Oh, and one last thing: I think I fit more into the ‘older-sister’ type of character. Make sure to address me properly next time”The doors close, and the train leaves. You’re left dumbstruck, but the Priest speaks up.“Well, there you go, Outer. You’ve got a new ally, although not exactly the kind of person I’d like to associate with”“Why so?” The girl talked about an Hair of the Dog remedy. Does it mean she’s “evil” too, to some degree?“Outer, did you not realize? That was a Rotten Girl”
IN THE NEXT EPISODE OF SAVING ANIME QUESTWhat is the price of the pride of an hero?Can our MC understand what the Warrior is trying to teach him?Can he bring relief to a land convulsing in pain?Will there be ananas on my pizza?This, and much less, in Saving Anime Quest 7!
>>46465326>Rotten Girl>translated from FujioshiI REALLY HATE THIS BITCH.
