“Something wrong, Suzu?” Miki chimes in as your impromptu alliance heads to class together.“Hm?” She blinks a few times.“You’re limping worse than usual.”“…” The small girl looks ready you bang her head into a wall. “Miki, how can you be so observant about some things and so dense about others?”You have… mixed feeling about how they can be so calm, given circumstances.Yan [/_________] Dere Can we please focus?

> [x] Did you Fight?We still need to be careful. I'm kinda starting to worry that the whole thing is a trap.
>>47961207We need at least some stability back, or else we may end up yelling incomprensible curses and incantations every second vote.
>>47961141>[X] Did you get in a fight or something during intel-gathering, Suzu
>>47961259If you haven't been paying attention Akira has been taking away our choices and our influence so we're being forced to be Yan, and besides that it's obviously the only way to win due to bad quest design
>>47961259Stability was a thing like... years ago.Now we're running on Yan and Dere.
>>47961141>[x] Did you get in a fight or something during intel-gathering, Suzu?We need to know our allies' statuses.
>>47961331Shit, meant Dere. Seems I'm still yearning for the times long gone...
>>47961317Shitmonkey, I thought you said you regretted wasting time here and that you were gonna leave forever to become a monk in Lumbini or something. Can you please make up your mind?
>>47961381Sounds like you need to do a better job of thinking, because I didn't say that
“Did you get in a fight or something?” You ask, wondering if you need to count Suzu out of your team’s combat potential. She sighs.“Had an attack coming down the stairs earlier. Kinda messed up my knee.” She shrugs. “I probably can’t fight but… well, I wouldn’t be much help to you there anyways.”… That’s… true, you suppose…“Here.”You reach the building – still damaged from the Riot of Rei and Asuka.“So, what’d you find out ab-” DING. The bell rings. Only way to learn Suzu’s intel now is to skip... Or your could just go to class and monitor the StuCo the old fashioned way.Yan [//________] Dere Just ditch. Go to class.
>>47961479class is for nerds>[X] Just ditch.
>>47961479ha, called it~>[X] Just ditch.
>>47961479>[X] Just ditch.It's not like Shizune or Misha would give anything away in class.
>>47961479>[X] Just ditch.
.[x] Just ditch.Ditching will allow us to learn and plan.
>>47961479>[X]Go to classWe must keep up appearances, shant we? Besides, the intel can be discussed later.
Hi Akira!Is there any chance we'll have a retcon to resurrect Lilly, regaining our alliance with in-game Akira?Or can you issue a poll asking us if we prefer going back to the choice that killed Lilly?Sorry I ask again this after all last session turmoil, but we spent almost the whole quest to pursue an alliance with Lilly and Akira, choosing Lilly in every pivotal choice we had (like the "I wanna be more like Lilly", "I'm not alone anymore", choosing Lilly every time we could do it in the first half of the route, before getting the Hisao taken by Shizune), and we lost all in a single post. Due to a choice that we don't even know which was (I figure which was but still not sure), in a way you didn't really clear (you said Lilly lost a fight, but looking at her body description and to at the tip about the poison action it was a full dere action, so no fight involved).And that wasn't only a criticism by the butthurt, but also a lot of perplexity by other anons and Fluff, as in the only choice involving Lilly we didn't had a clear choice "stay with Lilly", as both will result in us and Lilly in two different places. And all other choices were about other people, no one involving Lilly.I dunno, continuing on the path we have now after the way we played 'til a month ago, it seems being an inexplicable plot development.We all know you played F/SN. It's like playing the Unlimited Blade Works route, arrive at the first fight against Caster and Kuzuki, not fighting with Saber and Tohsaka but having Tohsaka beheaded by Kuzuki and no chance to regain Saber... but instead of getting the bad end 19 (if I remember correctly), continue to wander around hoping in a huge deus ex machina to win the game. Please give us the chance to come back to the previous situation
>>47961479>[x] Just ditch.
>>47961479>[x] Just ditch.We just lost a friend, it's expected, but I know Shizune will capitalize on our absence with Hisao.
>>47961455>>47961477Don't respond, he's proven repeatedly that he can't hold a conversation outside of writing up quest posts, and usually won't make sense when he tries to.
>>47961516that is a terrible idea. retcons are for the weak, we shall forge ahead.
>>47961479>[x] Just ditch.No doubt StuCo will try to take advantage of it, but they aren't long for this world anyway.
>>47961516No, go away. Learn to live with your failings. It's enough that every KY so far has been a ridiculous feel good scenario where everyone always won.
>>47961516see>>47961532OP is a little damaged right now, just stick to voting and we'll have a better time.
>>47961516You do not understand. There can be only one Lilly. So to become like Lilly, the Lilly that was has to be no more.
[x] ditchWe're known for being absentees, and intel is important.Besides, there's no way this whole thing is a trap banking on us being absentees like usual, isn't it? Haha....
>>47961516It's okay, bro.If we get a Bad End soon, maybe we can go back to before The Incident, but it's not likely we'll be able to retcon two threads.We may have to accept what happened and struggle on.
>>47961479[X] Go to class.While splitting up right now is unwise, we can't exactly strike right away. So it's intel vs Hisao and maybe regaining some stability.
>>47961479>[X] Just ditch.Might as well.
>>47961479Wait, really? We ask Suzu for info on the attack and she doesn't even bother to tell us who it was? Seems odd. Anyway:>[X] Just ditch.Might as well keep moving forward with the plan. We need to get the dirt on them so we can get this ball rolling.
>>47961610She meant attack as in she had a narcolepsy attack.
>>47961516The problem, I think, is that we threw away all the Dere we had been building up when we stupidly decided to murder Emi and Rin instead of using the one skill we had been working on the whole game. I'm still upset that people voted that way, but I know it's better to keep moving forward than to argue the point. Would be nice if Akira allows us a Hanako Route Gaiden where we can re-do at least some of it from that point, but we can save that for when this current quest is over.
>>47961566Trying to play based on traps isn't any good, OP never gives any clues and even the ones that people find end up not meaning anything, so every potential trap ends up like that "inconcievable" scene in the princess bride, so it's no better than a coin flip.
>>47961627Oh, duh. That makes sense.
>>47961644to be fair, even when we first voted to give the stumpletons a chance to leave, Akiratrip posted to let us know that having Akira with us would give us a huge edge over them since Akira has the highest stats in the game. we chose to attack, yes, but Akiratrip did provide incentive for that choice.
>>47961644Friendly reminder we were voting to avoid the fight, then the QM decided to relaunch the vote.
WE DON’T NEED NO EDUCATION~DUNUNUNUNU NUNU DUNUNUNUNU NUNU~ WE DON’T NEED NO THOUGHT CONTROL~You motion to Suzu and Miki. They don’t need to be told twice, they drift towards the sides of the hall while you simply activate your wallflower stealth and fade into the nothingness where a creature like you belongs.No.“‘They’ are the nothingness, Hanako…” The doll perched on your shoulder whispers into your ear. You giggle as Mutou staggers past you, Shizune and Misha in tow.die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die dieMiki’s footsteps snap you back into reality.“So, what’s you find out?”“Well, Shizune’s got herself covered on most technical points, so I spent a while looking for ways in which I could get them for negligence.”“You… found something?” You murmur in a low but excited whisper.“Yeah.” She points up. “The roof.”“The roof?”“Student Council in in charge of maintenance, but the safety rails on the roof are obviously dilapidated.” She pulls out a complaint form. “I just submit this to Mutou. He goes up and confirms, boom, StuCo is disbanded.”“Or…” Miki rocks her head. “If he brings Shizune and Misha with him, we could just jump em then and there… if you don’t mind catching Mutou in the crossfire, that is.”Oddly, Suzu, usually the moral center, makes no rebuttal to this plan.As for you…Yan [__________] Dere How would that work, Miki? And what then, Suzu?
>>47961702>[X] And what then, Suzu?
>>47961702>[X] And what then, Suzu?we should know better than to try to engage Shizune in combat like that.
>>47961702>Yan [__________] DereWell, there goes our stability
>>47961702>[X] And what then, Suzu?Jumping them seems like a terrible idea...
>[x] How would that work, Miki?We don't need Mutou, we only need our enemies to become corpses.
>>47961702>[X] How would that work, Miki?I've got no issue with killing Mutou.
>>47961702>[X] And what then, Suzu?Mutou doesn't deserve to die
>>47961702>[x] And what then, Suzu?Mutou's an unknown variable, I'd be reluctant enough to get into a head-on battle with StuCo without him in the equation.
>[x] what then, suzu?We should hear what everyone has to say.Also Mutou's lost a bunch of limbs, but our team also has a narcoleptic.>>47961650Dully noted.
>>47961702>[X] And what then, Suzu?Let's hear what she has to say.
>>47961644I thought Gaiden meant side story.we'd need much more than a side story to fix this mess
>>47961702>[X] How would that work, Miki?Mutou is not a threat. He's not standing between us and Hisao. After StuCo is disbanded, Shizune will be out of her element and an easy target for Akira. At that point, we simply need to sit back and wait for the problem to resolve itself.
>>47961702[X] And what then, Suzu?Gotta work with the schemer here. The extent of Miki's planning can be best described as "Bash em until they stop moving". Which is good too, but not exactly what we're looking for here.
>>47961828We already have a size story - Suzu's struggle to get the stump overshadows even stories of antic poets.
>>47961838D'OHThat was supposed to be a vote for Suzu's plan, not Miki's. Apologies, I'm a doofus. >[X] And then what, Suzu?
You dismiss Miki’s plan. You’ve tried blitzkrieg attacks against Shizune before and it’s always ended horribly. Also you’d rather not have Mutou die if you can avoid it… You’ve lost too much in this duel for Hisao.“What next, Suzu?”She shrugs. “Well, she’ll be tasked with locking up Student Council assets while the group is suspended to await an administrative decision. That’ll take time.”“How much time?”“Well after school lets out for the day… The building’ll be dead by the time she leaves.”“And we set an ambush.” Miki finishes the thought.Suzu nods. “Nowhere to hide, nowhere to run. Just you and them. Whadya think, Hanako?”You look at Miki, obviously psyched for battle, and to Suzu, as enigmatic as always.Yan [/_________] Dere Sounds good, let’s do it. Too risky. Let’s find another way.
>>47961971>[x] Sounds good, let’s do it.
>>47961971>[X] Sounds good, let’s do it.nothing ventured, nothing gained. Shizune might suspect something if she sees Suzu file the disband doc but eh, we'd have superior numbers.
>>47961971>[X] Sounds good, let’s do it.
>>47961971>[x] Sounds good, let’s do it.Worth a shot. And we're pretty Yan, so setting up an ambush is within our specialty.
>>47961971>[X] Sounds good, let's do it.
>[x] Sounds good, let's do it.Although the StuCo may realise what we are planning and be alert and prepared for an ambush.
>>47961971This sounds very fishy, chances are Shizune left that lead for Suzu to find on purpose so that they could actually trap us. I mean THE student council being unaware of something with the roof railing? In fact, having Mutou involved would have turned the tide in our favor because he's a wild card.[X] Too risky. Let’s find another way.
>>47962015>we'd have superior numbers.No we would not. Suzu is out as far as the combat potential goes. It's Miki & us vs StuCo.But the part I'm worried about is that Akira shows up at wrong moment with agenda of her own.
>>47961971>[X] Sounds good, let’s do it.We're committed at this point. It's possible that Akira will show up, in which case we can probably just let her kill Shizune. It's also possible that if we kill Deaf Bitch, Akira will come after us for denying her the chance to avenge her sister, though, which concerns me. I don't think we can afford to let such a fear get in the way of our own plans, though, otherwise we'll wind up doing nothing.
My only question, is how will Akira return? At the moment she is conducting her own investigation, and have no doubts that we will cross paths again.
>>47962061Nah, the railing thing makes sense if you think about it. Who are the two students that spend the most time on the roof? And what's their relationship with Shizune? If anything, I imagine she'd intentionally leave them in disrepair in the hopes that one or both members of Team Limbless would fall off and die.
Hm. 2 on one... Shizune probably knows martial arts, and proxy pink guards her against sneak-ups.Eh, fork it. We're full yan, >[x] Slaughter them
Guys, please don't forget about the Pink Drill.There's no way we have a fight with Shizune without Misha backing her up.
>>47962102But isn't the roof supposed to be locked at all times anyway?
You nod and pull out your knife – the knife Akira gave to you. With this knife you’re going to avenge her sister’s murder.“Sounds good. Let’s do it.”Miki clangs her nail-bat and Suzu her can of hair spray against your weapon to seal the deal.“Alright. I’ll submit the report right now.” Suzu claps her fist into her open hand, eyes sleepy (obviously) but determined. “You two better pick your ambush site really carefully. Shizune knows this school inside and out.”She slips away, leaving you and Miki together.“So Hanners.” She laughs and mashes your head around a bit, just like Akira used to… “What do you wanna do to prepare?”Yan [__________] Dere Provisions – Hit up the cafeteria early and set up the trap before lunch. Hedge bets – Go back to class with Shizune and Hisao. Set up the trap after lunch. Additional intel – Go back to the girl’s dorms and check for anything you might have missed. Set up trap whenever.
>>47962239[X] Provisions – Hit up the cafeteria early and set up the trap before lunch.The early bird guts the worm.
>>47962239>[x] Additional intel – Go back to the girl’s dorms and check for anything you might have missed. Set up trap whenever.I'm still on edge about this; if there's anything else we need to know, we should find out now.
>>47962239>[X] Hedge bets – Go back to class with Shizune and Hisao. Set up the trap after lunch.I don't want Shizune to notice our absence as anything out of our normal schedule.
>>47962239> you’re going to avenge her sister’s murder.No chance to avenge the route how it was before last week?
>[x] Additional intel – Go back to the girl’s dorms and check for anything you might have missed. Set up trap whenever.We need more intel to aid us, the trap should also be set as late as practical to prevent Shizune from finding out more precise details.
>>47962239we will need to strike fast so Shizune can't enact any counterplanswaiting til after lunch or after investigations is like giving batman time to prep. >[X] Provisions – Hit up the cafeteria early and set up the trap before lunch.
>>47962239>[X] Additional IntelCan never have too much intel. Maybe fucking Allied command would have revised Market Garden if they listened to the Dutch resistance prior to launching...
>>47962239>[X] Additional intel – Go back to the girl’s dorms and check for anything you might have missed. Set up trap whenever.
>>47962275But we're known for being absent. Wouldn't it be more abnormal for us being there?
If we go to class, and Shizune acts familiar with Hisao.... we might blow the whole thing instantly.
>[x] Retrieve IntelShizune's gonna stay a while according to Suz, so there shouldn't be any reason to rush.
>>47962307We're known for it, but Suzu/Miki will both be missing too, and if Shizune knows we're allied with them she might suspect something's up.
>>47961516Here's the thing. When we said we wanted to be more like Lily, that started the Hard Mode path, that vote there.Why? Lily is a dere character. She manipulates and gets other people to help her, because she can't really defend herself. Akira is her best defense as a super-yan character, a combat monster that can compensate for all of Lily's shortcomings.By playing Dere, we needed to find or make our own combat beast to defend us - and we relied on Akira for that since she was often right there. But as good as she is, she can't be in two places at once, and that's how we lost Lily. What makes it HARD MODE is now we're yan like Akira, and desperately need a dere counterbalance......that's it. We have the chance for a betrayal play since we're at full Yan. That locks us into dere and lets us play the social game to the extreme. This is how we win.
You all guys think really too much.Act random will guarantee us an higher success percentage.Why even bother on consequences when we have basically only slight variations to pick between?
>>47962416This isn't a planefag quest, bro. Yelling and shooting our firearm into the ceiling isn't our best option all the time.
“You pick a spot, Miki, I’ll come back as soon as I can.” You tell her and head off.You don’t know what you’re looking for. Maybe you just don’t wanna stay still until it’s time to start the killingkillingkillingkillingkillingkillingkillingkillingkillingkilling...Giggling, you arrive at the now-vacant girl’s dorms…Now what?Yan [/_________] Dere Investigate Rin’s room Investigate Shizune’s room. Investigate Emi’s room. Investigate Lilly’s room. Investigate Misha’s room.
>>47962455>[x] Investigate Lilly’s room.We need to remind ourselves of what she took from us.She will not take Hisao.
>>47962455>[X] Investigate Misha’s room.We might be able to find something we could use to blackmail Misha
>>47962416i think people were scared by losing lilly out of nowhere for no reasonand they think we can make the run good again, what a bunch of morons. the only goal here is to end it asap so we can get out of this shitpile and vote on a new route (voting to redo hanako's would be nice but akira is a little too butthurt to allow that)
>>47962376That's really brilliant, my friend.And it could be at least revive a little the sense of this route if we can reach this goal.Too bad we probably won't have this kind of plot development.
>>47962455>>47962476I voted with my heart, not my head.Changing my vote.>[x] Investigate Misha’s room.
>>47962455>Investigate Rin's roomShizune would have trapped her own room, and probably Misha's. She may have trapped Lilly's because that's where we're most likely to go for comfort.She wouldn't bother with Rin and Emi, because they're dead. And the LAST thing she'd expect is a swarm of Rin's robots ambushing her.
Wasn't there something that Hanako found odd about the window in lillys room?Don't think we'd find something in Shizu's or Drilly's room; there's a chance that they're also trapped.Not sure if there'd be anything remotely useful in Rin's room.
>>47962376Paging Akira trip to consider this if he hadn't aready.
>>47962455another tough choice. I am drawn to Rin because of something said regarding her and saving allies, but Shizune or Misha would be good ideas too... Not sure what we could hope to find in Misha's room, though. >[X] Investigate Rin’s room
>>47962455>[x] Investigate Rin’s roomShizune's room will be trapped. Misha's is too dangerous. Emi's is useless. We already know what's in Lilly's room.There's only one obvious answer, lads. This isn't hard.
>>47962455>[X] Investigate Lilly's Room.personally I think we should check StuCo's, but... All For Revenge, man.>>47962472All For Revenge.
>>47962477> voting to redo hanako'sI'd vote against redoing all Hana route. And I don't want to close it in a hurry, it would be nonsense.I'd vote for redoing it from session 13 tho, having occasions sometimes to pursue the Dere option we were told we could have (like the poisoning, pushing our enemies to commit suicide, and so on). And maybe with the manual Akira announced on the steam group, so we could be able to decide what to do knowing how exactly our choices have an impact on the story.As you said, I fear we won't have that choice.
>>47962514We noticed that the windows were able to be opened, which shouldn't be possible. That's all it was.>>47962514Think about how they attacked us. Emi stabbed us with screwdrivers, our knife is an upgrade to that already. Rin had her bot army, there's no real analog for that for us.
>[X] Investigate Rin's Room.
>>47962568I see.On second thought, checking that might've helped to figure out how Lilly was killed - butthat's not going to be very useful now though.>[x] Rinroom
>[X] Investigate Misha's room.Chances we'll find something secret there. Better than checking Shijewne's.
>>47962455>[X] Investigate Rin’s roomRin's killer robots are our chance. They may also be a bad end, but still.
>>47962455>[X] Investigate Rin’s roomMaybe we can find some of those robots and use them against the deaf bitch.
>mfw a wheatley choice is about to win
I wrote this >>47961516more than one hour ago, so I suppose I won't get an Akira's answer.I spent many hours asleep (european fag here) to play this quest. I won't continue knowing we essentialy can't really decide the plot (as last week development showed us, in my opinion), and we can't even discuss with the Quest Master if there's an issue as big as last session's one.I'm going to bed now.It was the last time I followed this quest.Imposing us to continue after a 9-8 vote (if I guessed correctly the choice, a thing we still don't know, and maybe we'll know at the end of the route, maybe not. And it won't be useful anymore) with no evidence that that vote led us to mess all the work we did for months. Without giving us a more fitting to the plot bad end, or at least a poll choice to going back.And the Quest Master unable to listen to any criticism, and answering with "you should expect bad things 'cause the way you played" "I explained all, it's your fault you weren't able to understand my explanations" and so on.We went from a master who put up obstacles in the route (a challenging story) to a master who decided how things have to go, and it's now only a hack&slash (not necessarily bad, but not my favourite ones). Maybe you find funny, entertaining or fair punishing us on a single vote, seeing people voting going from 15-17 to 6-9 in a session, no debate at all, with at least two of them (dunno how many anons and Fluff) playing hoping they'll get a bad end to come back, and intimidating players with your statement "you'll have to follow my decisions, or we have to abort the whole route". With these premises, I can't anymore, sorry.I never agreed with your policy to postpone all the questions to the end of the routes, but I understand in an online quest we'll avoid to quarrel about any single post. But you should have done an exception this time, and you should have questioned yourself about giving us a choice to go back.cont.
>>47962455[X] Investigate Rin’s roomThis is really nuts, but since the setting is devoid of magic, we could pull a real good one over stuco by using the Rin's weapons against them, there has got to be a way to control them somehow. It'd be especially advantageous for us since they are best used in an ambush, even an armless madman could push determined combatants back with them. And that is something Shizune definitely would not expect and have no means on hand to defend against.
>>47962675Wheatly wasn't even the first person to suggest it. Get over yourself.>>47962619Poison. We know Shizune went max dere and aggro-cuddled Hisao, and max dere gets the poison option if they can find out - but poison can only kill one person, because everyone else will get suspiscious afterwards.She's fully on the dere path, meaning if we're yan we SHOULD have a leg up in combat - then again, willing to bet Misha is pretty full Yan to make it an even match,
You decide to investigate Rin’s old room. You don’t know why… but you feel as if something is calling you there.The doorknob turns under your touch. It wasn’t even locked.Inside you find a veritable psycho-shrine of paintings of Hisao plastering the walls and the ceiling… But there are other most disturbing images mixed in: Hisao riding a shoggoth, Hisao reading from a book bound in human skin and entails, promotional art for Half Life 3…You quickly burn that last one for fear of losing your sanity.If you were hoping for an armory of some sort, your expectations are somewhat amiss… though maybe she had something else buried?Or maybe there’s a message in the pictures?Yan [/_________] Dere Rummage through the storage areas.

>>47962757>[x] Study the paintings
>>47962700cont.I'm also a master when I play RPGs with my friends, I can't exige my behaviour is the perfect one but if during a session I'll take a so drastic choice (as Lilly's death was), repudiating the direction of the whole campaign, seeing my players grumbling/quitting about this choice, ignoring their requests, and avoid explaining/discussing with them 'cause I'll explain only in the end of the campaign, they would eat me alive. And they will have a lot of good reasons to do it.To all the players: I saw you continue to play. Probably I'm the one who's too stubborn and too strict. I wish you you'll continue to enjoy it, for me it was fun, as it lasted, playing with you guys.To Akira: you deserve a big fuck you on how you managed last sessions. But I owe you a bigger thank you for the entertaing times, until two sessions ago, I won't deny it.Just my 2 cents.Ps: last thing. If this kind of thing will happen again to you, please avoid statements like "I thought I fucked up, but I didn't!" or "you are the one who decide the story, I'm only the one who writes it" or similar ones.

>>47962757>rummage through storage areasPissing against the tide, I know, but staring at the paintings seems like it'd be something incredibly distracting - and the last thing we need is to be distracted.
>>47962757>[x] Study the paintings.Just FYI, the best way to make an artist's work valuable is to kill the artist. We should just grab these and sell them. We'll be rich!Failing that, I am sure the paintings will provide incredibly useful knowledge to balance out our degraded mental state.
>>47962757>[X] Study the paintings.
i don't want to point fingers at req and i'm sure he didn't intend for it to be like this, but maybe the art he drew was part of this route's declinesimply put, he drew that stuff for it to be seen, and akira would punish us for being dere, not getting in fights and therefore not seeing those drawings, and would reward us for being yan and getting in fights since we got to see the artmaybe even focusing on the art is being too narrow, maybe it was just a part of the problem, and akira was also punishing us for being dere since it meant we were ignoring his spreadsheet of combat stats (or whatever that was)

>>47962757>[X] Rummage through the storage areas.The only thing we're likely to find in those paintings is a message that reads "I love Hisao" and pure insanity. I doubt they'd provide anything useful even if we could decipher what goes on in her mind. She may have a physical item that's useful, however.
>>47962985Wrong.In previouse routes, Rin was able to use her paintings and tap into her Other Selves from different routes.We may be able to tap into our Other Selves through them as well.It's worth as shot. Better than rummaging through her refuse.
>>47962895When tree falls in a forest and nobody is around, does it make a sound?
Rin was a painter before anything and everything else. Her paintings are essentially a window into her soul… and Jesus freaking Christ is that one messed up soul.A piece of toast inscribed with all manner of evil glyphs.A shoggoth burst out of her head in a most disturbing self-portrait.Tons of portraits of Hisao, of course… You pocket one or two of the nicer ones for… um… ‘research’ purposes…Then you freeze.Hidden behind one of the Hisao-portraits is a strange trigram insignia… No, not insignias… pictographs: A red teapot. A green teacup. A blue saucer. They appear to be arranged in some sort of an array with one having precedence over the other…And… more disturbingly, about each arrow is a painting of Hisao’s face… The exact same face. It’s odd because all of her other paintings depict Hisao in different poses and expressions…But this… They're the same... And this evil tea set…What… does it mean?
>>47963026Yes, unless you've been playing VLRThen it simultaneousy did and did not make a sound, and will remain in that state until someone listens to it.
>>47963026If a bear shits on a fallen tree in the woods, how much wood would he chuck?
>>47962797Hey dude, it seemed you cared a lot about this quest. A little too much, probably.It's an online CYOA after all, you shouldn't be so bitter about it when things go wrong.I also disliked a little Akira's behaviour, but he recognized the game choices weren't clear so he'll write a manual about the Yan/Dere meter for the next route.I still hug you, hoping you'll sleep well and you will think again about leaving us.
>>47963033>But this… They're the same... And this evil tea set…>What… does it mean?OH BOY.
>>47963068>responding to copypasta
>>47963033“Um… Hanako?” A soft, raspy voice suddenly tears you from your intense study of this evil painting.You whirl around to find Suzu standing in the doorframe. “I… thought you were gonna be setting up an ambush for Shizune?”“I… wanted to check… something…” You murmur, still feeling a bit out of it.“Are we robbing graves now?”“The grave is where they’re buried. Their living space is fair game.”She shoots a tired smile your way. “Find anything important?”Yan [/_________] Dere Do you understand this painting? N-no…
>>47963106>[X] Do you understand this painting?
>>47963106>[x] Do you understand this painting?Never let a thread go once you've pulled it.
>>47963106[X] Do you understand this painting?
>>47963106>[X] Do you understand this painting?There's no going back now.
>>47963033So this route became pretty low-tier only to get the teaset?Seems legit
>>47963106Didn't she have part of the teaset? She'd probably know something about it.>[y] Do you understand this painting?
>>47963139The route is a reflection of our choices.
BTW, does the Teaset still unlock the true Lilly route? I'm having a memory lapse.
>>47963175> The route is a reflection of our choices.
>>47963216That's what I recall, but Akira is seeming to imply that it now unlocks a route of anyone we choose, including YanAkira.
>>47963258Will be able to replay partly this route?
>>47963258Also the True Lilly Route.I just don't know who to choose first- Lilli, Akira, or Illya.
“Do you… understand this painting?” You indicate the ancient glyph depiction of the Tea Set.She looks it over, then shakes her head. “Nope. I… don’t really get art. At least… not that kind…”She looks off to the side, cheeks a bit flushed.Wait… you could have sworn that you saw…DING.The bell informs you that lunch is over. Miki is almost certainly in the process of setting up the ambush now… You have no time to waste… But… the Tea Set…Do you press Suzu?Yan [/_________] Dere She’s lying. Press her. Save it for now. Avenging Lilly comes first.
>>47963258>it unlocks the true Hanako route
>>47963292>[X] She’s lying. Press her.WE. MUST. KNOW.
>>47963292>[X] She’s lying. Press her.c'mon Suzu stop putting the tea in tease and tell us what we want to know
>>47963292Shit. The worst part is that we can't even tell whether she is actually lying or it's Hanako's yanparanoia acting up. Although avenging Lilly means jack shit anyway. She's dead and our goal is Hisao. In fact it works in our favor - one less competitor.[X] She’s lying. Press her.
>>47963292>PressPress Press Press Press Press
>>47963292>[X] She’s lying. Press her.
>>47963292>[X] She’s lying. Press her.I'm unable to make reasonable decisions whenever there's a Teaset (or a shoggoth plush) involved.
>>47963292>Save it for now.She wants the Miki Route. We can't blame her for it, and we might even be able to help her a bit. But pushing her right now does us no good.
>>47963292>[X] Save it for now. Avenging Lilly comes first.
>>47963033Red Teapot = RinGreen Teacup = EmiBlue Saucer = Shizune.The paintings of Hisao are the Hisao's from each route.>>47963292>[X] She’s lying. Press her.Threaten that if she doesn't tell us, we'll leave Miki to face Shizune alone.
>>47963366> We can't blame her for itAt this point, the only "logical" path we have is to blame anyone for everything
>>47963395Wasn't Rin in her route Green with a bit of Red for healing??
Goal is setting up ambush with Miki and killing Shizune and lesbo, getting distracted by tea set picture doesn't help that and is only gonna get Miki killed just like Lilly.>Save it for now. Go shove knife up Shizune's fuckslit. >>47963362I'm blanking on what the shoggoth plush is actually supposed to do/unlock.
>>47963426I was referring to each of the girl's theme color.Hanako is purple and Lilly is yellow.
>>47963292> Save itNo time to waste? Better start prepping up.
>>47963400Suzu has been blueballed this entire fucking route. She also has absolutely 0 interest in Hisao and has been loyal to us pretty much without fail.She deserves at least this much.
We're Yan at this point. Our allies are only useful if they serve our needs.
>>47963395>>47963426> inconsistencies inside a single route on weekly basis> implying 2012-2013 routes matter something
A twinge goes through you. In an instant, you slam Suzu against the wall and have your knife to her throat. She doesn’t even make an effort to resist. Without Miki it’s like she has no violent instinct of her own.“I’ll say it again: What do you know about that tea set?”You can feel her pulse quicken as she find herself being held at knifepoint by an obviously deranged individual.“I… I know a story! That’s all!” She wisely decides to continue not resisting.“What’s the story?”“It’s a fable I heard as a child: The First Tea Set was used in the first ever tea ceremony. It had the power to unlock girl’s routes which weren’t in the main game.”You sigh. You know that part. “What else?!”“You… you need two souls… Ah! Hanako! That hurts! Tha-! Ah! Ok… Ok… you need two souls in alliance to be able to see it. You need all three pieces to be able to make the wish, but the wish itself is made by drinking from the teacup!”She whimpers. You…Yan [__________] Dere Back off and go join Miki. Keep at it.
>>47963493>[X] Back off and go join Miki.That's enough intel for now. Time to meet up before Miki tries to take StuCo alone.

>>47963493It'd be best to actually kill her here and put the blame on stuco, this outburst will come to bite us in the ass if we let her live. But that's enough ruthless pragmatism for now, I guess.>[X] Back off and go join Miki.
>>47963493>back off and go join MikiWay to fuck it up guys. Pressing her for more information is going to torpedo our alliance entirely, and we didn't get much useful intel here.Rin and Emi were a pair for the teaset. Miki and Suzu are a pair for the teaset. Hell, evn Shizune and Misha are a pair for the teaset.We don't have a partner, this is less than useless intel for us. Back off and let her do what she do.

>>47963493>[x] Back off and go join Miki.Let's cool down before we alienate/murder our few remaining allies.

>>47963493I know backing off and joining Miki will win.But you can't whine on the route if we continue to change our mind.>[X] Keep at it.
>>47963582Obviously she's hiding something. No one would willingly give up information as easily as that.Keep at it!
>>47963685That time weren't we waiting for a vote to break the tie?Anyway, >>47963493>[X] Keep at it.

What is going on, you fucking Jians?!
>>47963767Blue Hair cares for friendship and love alike, and will try to keep on to both. She'll only see us as an opponent if we're willing to sacrifice her happiness for our own. As long as we make sure she's also happy she'll keep with out plans.Back off and go join Miki.
You don’t let up and drag the flat of the blade just lightly across her throat. “AND?”“And… and that’s it! That’s all I know! It’s a fairy tale about a magic tea set that grants wishes! That’s all I know!” She starts sobbing.You rock your head back and forth.“I…”BOOM.Suddenly you hear a crash from the direction of the school.Shit. Miki must have botched it somehow.Without a moment’s rest, you drop Suzu and tear out of the building like a bat out of hell. That bitch better not cost you your chance for Hisao… or for revenge.
>>47963699Full Yan it is!>>47963493> [x] Keep at it.

Whelp, I knew this would be a waste of a choice.
>>47963810Well shit. Hopefully someone finds her there and finishes the job.
You guys are fucking morons.
>>47963810Oh. Looks like you were right, Wheatley.
>>47963834>>47963836It was still too late.How many seconds we lost again with Suzu? we clearly had no time to go out
>>47963873Indeed, Wheatley. Indeed.

>>47963876That's not how this works.That's not how any of this works.>>47963873>>47963888SHUT UP, OTHER WHEATLEY!
You arrive to find the cafeteria ablaze, the echoing of steel and woosh of flames… It’s kind of nostalgic.You giggle in spite of yourself.It’s not too hard to guess the broad strokes of what happened: Miki must have gone down to get some kinda food, or maybe she was lured in by Shizune anticipating something like this... Whatever the case, she hit Shizune early. One spark from blade against blade is all it would have taken…And judging from the clashing of steel, the duel is still going.Yan [__________] Dere Slip in stealthy for an ambush. No time for stealth. Miki’s up against two.
>>47963898Every core has its right to an opinion!
>>47963904>[X] Slip in stealthy for an ambush.Use our strengths. Miki is a tank, she can hold out.
>>47963904>[X] No time for stealth. Miki’s up against two.gotta save the delicious brown and undo some of the damage dawdling at Rin's place did
[x] No time for stealth. Miki’s up against two.No time to ambush
>>47963904>[X] Slip in stealthy for an ambush.Option one probably results in Miki dying, but we take down Shizzle and Misha goes insane so that's a victory. Option two is the more straight up approach, but it puts our hides at risk and deprives us of the wallflower advantage.
>>47963898No?Sorry, but we didn't even know where we were headed.We told:>>47962455> “You pick a spot, Miki, I’ll come back as soon as I can.”Without even knowing where we had to go.
>>47963904>[X] No time for stealth. Miki’s up against two.SCHNELLER! SCHNEEEEELLEEEEEER!
>>47963876That's how it works in real life, but akira doesn't give a shitthere's been huge disconnects between insignificant choices and their rather large consequences for the past 3 sessions that akira will never fix
>>47963904>[X] Slip in stealthy for an ambush.Stick to our strength. Miki should be able to hold on if Shizune's not desperate and uses Ea.
>>47963904Hoh. Deafy is deaf, so ambushing them while they're distracted by Miki woud be good.... but that means we rely on Miki holding up.On the flipside, are Beacon and Stumpy really strong enough to overwhelm the 2 in a direct fight?
>>47963954>I’ll come back as soon as I can.Nice damage control.
>>47963904>[X] Slip in stealthy for an ambush.and SAVE

>>47964003You're on 4chan.
>>47963948> No time to ambushWe should have an ability useful to ambush right? Really strange we never saw it working before tonight, but that's another story.
>>47963937Is she actually a tank or is that wishful thinking?We don't have any character sheets right now, although OP in his deranged state will probably insist that we do

>>47964003I have literally never seen anyone as butthurt as this guy. Like ever. Even the kids in kindergarten throwing tantrums when they lost a soccer game were more mature.
>>47964003You're being ironic on purpose right?
>>47963904>slip in stealthy for an abmushShizune's going to be taking a huge penalty against it, and we get bonuses to it. If we can get 3x her score it's an instant win.Worth the risk here.
>>47964003I believe a more fitting comparison can be done with terrorism.It's easy to see terrorists blow themselves and call them crazy assassins.It's harder understand why terrorism will ever find people ready to kill themselves.
>>47964025Miki's on the track team. In the KS game it was said she's the second-fastest runner, only Emi beats her.

[Meanwhile]Suzu sits on the sets of the girl’s dorms, placidly staring out into space. She seems to have calmed down very quickly. She sighs… and suddenly realizes she can see her breath in a white cloud as the air goes cold.A slender suited figure fades out of the shadows behind her. “Hey there, Suzu.”She turns to find herself staring into Akira’s burning red eyes.
>>47964109Oh.Oh no.We have ERRED.
>>47963904>[X] Slip in stealthy for an ambush.Maybe we should try actually playing to our strengths instead of recreating Twitch Plays Pokemon? For once?

I have to leave, so don't you fuckers ruin this.Sorry, Suzu.

>>47964109Wait..Could it be that..Suzu.. killed Lilly?Why else would Akira track her down?
>>47964109Oh! Akira is contacting our friends to tell them that she's accepted the death of her sister and is willing to cooperate with us again!
>>47964162We're going nuclear.
>>47964170God damn it, Wheatley.
>>47964162See, in my experience, there is always a part of the quest where it all just goes to hell.I think we've reached that part.
>>47964163I kind of didn't make the connection right away but...>Suzu blueballed constantly>Learns of the teaset legend to finally get that sweet Miki yuri>Attempts to steal it getting Lilly killed in the process
>>47964163>Could it be that..>Suzu.. killed Lilly?That's a possibility. Perhaps even accidentally.
>>47964186I have an inkling you're insinuating something...Fluff, are you trying to tell me we're friends?
You slink into a low stance, take a deep breath, and dart into the smoke.Although you’re sure it was unintentional, this low-visibility environment is a perfect counter to Shizune. She can’t hear you… so if you can just stay out of sight…There.A flash of pink.“SHIICHAN!” Misha smashes off the ground and throws herself into Shizune, knocking her out of the way just as Miki’s nail bat slams down.SPLUCK.Misha is blown through across the room as if having been shot with a rocket launcher.Shizune… can’t scream. But her eyes say it all. She tears up into the opening Misha bought with her life – driving her scissors at Miki’s liver.SPLUCK.And stops halfway as you fade out of the smoke and stab her from behind. A perfect ambush.
>>47964190I think we reached it two threads ago (probably it wasn't even our fault), but I have to agree all went shit.At this time, as my grandfather used to say: "if you are in a pile of shit, start doing the pig"
>>47964190So now the idea is to keep going and see what happens?
>>47964209I recall Hanako coming to a conclusion that Lilly was distracted, perhaps Suzu was the one that distracted her inadvertently. Or perhaps intentionally.
>>47964206building on that... what if ownership of teaset pieces only transfers in death? that would be all the more of a motive.oh shit. >>47964220>>47964220shitshitshitshitshit don't tell me Miki died here.
>>47964231Yeah... I mean, have you read the Lilly route? Jesus that just went to hell in the last few chapters..
>>47964231it's pretty hard to take seriously anymoreI wonder if OP will respond to this post with or without his trip this time

>>47964259What did I tell you?
[Meanwhile]“Where’s Hanners?” Akira looks around, sniffing the air like a wolf.“With Shizune and Misha right now. I can take you-”“No need. It’s actually you I had business with.” She tilts her head. “I wanted to check something with ya.”The brains of Yamaku’s unofficial amateur detective duo tilts her head.“First, Lilly met Shizune at the beginning of the lunch period… But she wasn’t killed until lunch was almost over. Now, given the delayed nature of poison as a murder technique, that on its own doesn’t spell anything conclusive… but considering other stuff…”“Other stuff?”Akira pulls the shard of broken teacup out of her jacket. “Hanako lifted that from the crime scene. It was enough to get a chemical sample of the poison from.”Silence.“Lilly was killed with an overdose of a drug called modafinil. That’s a pharmaceutical that was discontinued just earlier this year…” Her red eyes take a razor-sharp tone. “One used to treat narcolepsy.”Suzu tilts her head back. Slowly her face cracks into a hollow smile.
>>47964162I played in the previous two girls' routes. Anons played the Lily route pretty smartly. Rin's route was when the player base went full fishmalk, hitting one bad end after another and dragging the route out further and further.
>>47964245Pretty sure she didn't. Here's how I read it.>Miki attacks Shizune, about to kill>Misha throws herself in front of the attack and dies horribly>Shizune takes the opening she got from Misha dying, stabbing m->We interrupt Shitzune's kill with a perfect ambush, killing her.

>>47964328Or it wasn't Suzu. Just Shizu intentionally left behind evidence that would point to Suzu.
>>47964393Why did Suzu do it though. What was there to gain with that action? Is it really about the teaset or there was something else involved? Was she bribed by Shizune or someone else?
>>47964287Now the question we need to ask ourselves is this: was Suzu working with Deafbitch or was she making her own play for Hisao?
>>47964421Or was she making her own play for the tea set?
>>47964421she was clearly making her play for the teaset to try to get on a Miki route.
>>47964372Suzu rocks her head back and forth, her movements reminiscent of a doll coming apart at the hinges, eyes wide and vacant – her madness finally unveiled.“You killed Lilly.”“Yes.”“You used Hanako to kill Shizune for you.”“Yes.”“You planned this all along.”She giggles. “No… not ‘all’ along. If it hadn’t been for Hanako, I probably would have never gained the courage to do what had to be done. She showed me the way after you two killed Emi and Rin… Death for love’... How… romantic…” Flushed, she puts her hands on her face.“Why, though? What for? How does all of this help your cause in any way?”“Why… because of this…” Opening her bag, three glazed objects come rolling out – a cup, a saucer, and a teapot.But their markings are gone. The magic has been used.“Lilly had one. Shizune had one. And I had one.” She laughs like a clown. “I killed Lilly for her piece and used Hanako to target Shizune for hers…. With this, I will have Miki no matter what. I will have my own route, probably written by Suiko.”Suzu is overcome by a fit of giggles, happily losing her mind. “Don’t you get it? No matter what happens in this reality, I’ve won! I’ve won! MiKi will love mE…”Akira’s machete materializes in her hand. “’No matter what’? That’s… a very bold claim...”
>>47964414>>47964421fan theory is that she wanted the 4th-wall-breaking tea set so she could be lesbians which makes no senseand since it's a poor explanation you better believe it's right
>>47964372Say it with me AnonsLIKEAGODDAMNEDFIDDLE>>47964421>>47964435She doesn't give a fuck about Hisao. She was only after the teaset for the Yuri route.And now I'm going to archive dive to see where she picked up that information about Lilly and the tea set. That probably was the death flag option, and it was probably LONG before asking Lilly to run interference for us.
>>47964449>that's a very bold claim
>>47964372I- YOU-THAT IS JUST-FUCKAlright, I'll admit, that was pretty clever. You had us assuming that nothing could go wrong by setting up Miki and Suzu from the get-go as friends, and we never really suspected she would make a play like that. That... okay, I'll give you that one. You got us.
>>47964372This is intentionally so stupid, which makes it smart.DAMN SURIKO
>>47964479Trip back on
>>47964449RAAAGH!THEY PLAYED US LIKE A DAMN FIDDLE!
>>47964449I TOLD Y'ALL TELLING SUZU THAT "KILLING FOR LOVE" WAS A BAD IDEA I WARNED YOU
>>47964449So again, playing dere made us take a big dick in the ass?Nice
>>47964449Suzu about to get slowly murdered by Akira. So much for her yuri route.
>>47964492But we're the ones laughing. She dismanted the StuCo for us, eleminated Lilly as a potential rival, and even gave us Miki to get rid of Shizune for good... and she'll get Akira'd for all her trouble. All we need to pray now for is that Akira doesn't pick us next.
The sad thing is that since the OP is actually going and explaining everything (referencing really old posts and showing us the truth in third person), he must actually think it's good enough to put a cap on and not let us redo the route to figure out the master plan ourselves.
I still have to understand if I like how things went or not.
>>47964544It doesn't matter. Like she said:“Don’t you get it? No matter what happens in this reality, I’ve won!"Each KY is it's own reality.....and Suzu just created one..
You stand over Shizune and stare into her eyes as she dies.At last it’s over…At last, Lilly is avenged.“Hanako?”Suddenly you freeze and slowly you turn around to stare into Hisao’s horrified visage.[Katawa Yandere – Hanako Q Ὸ oʞɐuɐH – əɹəpuɐY ɐʍɐʇɐʞ[·əɓɐsıʌ pəıɟıɹɹoɥ s’oɐsıH oʇuı əɹɐʇs oʇ punoɹɐ uɹnʇ noʎ ʎๅʍoๅs puɐ əzəəɹɟ noʎ ʎๅuəppnS”¿oʞɐuɐH“·pəɓuəʌɐ sı ʎๅๅıႨ ʻʇsɐๅ ʇ∀…ɹəʌo s’ʇı ʇsɐๅ ʇ∀·səıp əɥs sɐ səʎə ɹəɥ oʇuı əɹɐʇs puɐ əunzıɥS ɹəʌo puɐʇs noYEverything implodes unto itself.

And in front of it is a familiar waif – one of the handful of Yamaku’s students who might be your equal in the ‘being quiet’ department.“S-Suzu?”The ever-tired-looking girl turns her head the absolute minimum distance required to acknowledge your presence, then looks back disinterestedly.
>>47964554Indeed. I'd say everything worked out quite well so far, as far as our goal is actually concerned. People ought to learn to differentiate between their fondness of other characters and winning the game. I voted to stab Emi to death in Rin's route when she gave us the dagger because I knew it will be a problem when we'll have to share the man.
>>47964568So it means we played Suzu route during Hanako route?Damn, will I ever see AT LEAST ONCE a Hanako route without her being treated as a smokin' shit?
>>47964562I'm okay with it. Emi's route is supposed to be Fate/Zero IIRC
>>47964583LEEEET'S DOOOO THE TIIIIME WAAAARP AGAAAAAIN
>>47964592Okay, I retract that statement.
>>47964583>Suddenly you freeze and slowly you turn around to stare into Hisao’s horrified visage....YOOOOOOOOOU MOOOOTHER FUUUUUCKER.Now Akira is just fucking with us!
>>47964614Me too, lel.
>>47964583WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENINGGGGGGHHH
TIGERGRUPPE! ABANDON TAAAAANK!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvEHImfv8RI
>>47964583“You’ve felt it… haven’t you?”You approach alongside her. “Felt… what?”“An ancient battle is being repeated. A battle with reality itself at stake… wait….” Suddenly, you both stagger – the world swimming before your eyes as if looking through a mirage in a desert. Iamges flood your minds – images of chaos, calamity, failure on every level.You see Suzu’s betrayal. Even though you weren’t actually there. She sees you kill Shizune.Your head pounding, you and she look to one another.““What happened?”” Your voices overlap – the tired girl looking just as confused as you are.“You used the First Tea Set.”In a state of numb shock, you look over to find Rin standing languidly off to the side, staring placidly at you.“What…”“To create an alternate reality in which the wish it was used to grant is true, the First Tea Set uses its own existence as a sacrifice. So in order to avoid any contradictions that might arise in the law of causality it resets the timestream back to a point before its magic was first invoked.”“How do you know all that, Rin?”“Because the stuffed shoggoth who lives inside my head told me so.”“…”“…”She shrugs and wanders off. You and Suzu are left staring slack-jawed at each other. “Well… this is awkward.”
>>47964650>“You’ve felt it… haven’t you?”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F86cYaCGyw
>>47964638Akira warped us back to the "Who do you want to be like" question.Like we begged him to.
>>47964650So that's where the stuffed shoggoth was all along...God dammit.
>>47964558The real sad thing is that I supposed the butthurt tried to derail the thread when we were threatening Suzu.But our destiny was to reach this end, no matter what.
>>47964650Well, this, uh... this sequence of events is feeling very Classic Katawa Yandere right now. I have no idea where this is going, but I'm interested to find out.
>>47964679>weI didn't do any of that. In fact I'm perfectly fine fighting out this insane struggle until its bitter and horrifying end. I suppose now we'll vote whether we warp back to that point or not, or something. At any rate, if it results in more KY, I'd be happy to oblige.
>>47964650The Stuffed Shoggoth...so that's what it was for.
IT JUST KEEPS TUMBLING DOWN, TUMBLING DOWN, TUMBLING DOWN.
[Meanwhile]Misha stops trying to strangle Shizune and curls up, then starts crying.Shizune, meanwhile, just stares up vacantly at the sky for a few minutes before she finally snaps back to reality.… [Kimochi Warui.]
>>47964650>"so in order to avoid any contradictions that might arise in the law of causality it reset the timestream back to a point before its magic was first invoked.">Suzu using the First Tea Set induces its own retcon so it can't be reused.>We retcon back to the decision that the whiners wanted to redo.THE PAINTING WINSTHE PAINTING WINS FUCKING *AGAIN*

[Meanwhile]Lilly yawns and stretches out on her bed, motioning for a cup of tea that Akira dutifully hands her.“You’re alive.” Akira greets her with a rather fruitless but still genuine smile.She puts a hand to her face and giggles. “Certain Japanese philosophers have theorized that people don’t always die if they’re killed.”Akira sighs. “So… did everything go as you planned?”“My, my… far from everything, Akira.” She sips her tea. “I never would have imagined the finalists would be Shizune and Hanako, of all people…” She giggles. “It was an immensely entertaining show.”“You just wanted to watch.”“Mhm. If you and I fought together outright… we’d ‘probably’ win… but it wasn’t a certainty. But now though… now for all intents and purposes I’ve already won.”“That’s why you held me back from killing Emi and Rin in Nomiya’s basement.”“Mhm.” She nuzzles against her sister. “Now I know that all the other girls are pursuing Hisao. Now I know what kind of resources they have and what they’re capable of. I know everything about them and they know nothing of me.” She hands Akira a gleaming runed knife. “’Now’ we act.”A dreamy expression sweeps over her face and she presses her hands to her cheeks. “Hisao will be mine… Just according to plan.”(T/L Note: Plan means keikaku.)[Katawa Yandere Part 16 End]
>>47964847Boy am I glad I stuck around for this. Good show, Akira.
>>47964874niceebini like it
>>47964847I criticized you in a couple of posts, but now I have to say:MASTERPIECE!
Now to wait another fucking week... Goddamn it you magnificent bastard..
>>47964847I told twice, in this route, Lilly could our greatest opponent for Hisao's heart.I WAS RIGHT, FUCKERS!!!Great show.You deserved a lot of insults for what happened the last weeks, but this was glorious.
Aaaaand 'that's' why I ask for criticisms at the end instead of the middle. Even rookie artists know you can't judge a piece until it's finished.I was smirking like a loon the entire time the shitmonkey and his online boyfriend were screeching about how 'everything is shit it's hopeless it's too late'. That defeatist attitude is just depressing, dude.
>>47964950Imo should have pushed until the end, unrepentant. But it's your choice of course. I love Lilly to bits, but this was a game and she was eliminated from it.
>>47964950>I was smirking like a loon>just depressingI'm sure you can make your passive-aggressive damage control posts a little more consistent than that my man
>>47964731So... I'm assuming Third impact happened when the Tea Set was used.
Anyhow, there will be no KY next week.What you can look forward to instead is the release of the official Katawa Yandere Rulebook! I'll be completing it soon and posting a link for download on our Steam Group. So get in on that if you're not already. It's free.See y'all later, my lovelies. ^_^
Holy fuckThis thread went from 0 to holyfuckingshitwhat pretty quick
>>47964847Say it with me everybodyLIKEAGODDAMNEDFIDDLE
>>47964950I suppose it was hard.But the butthurt duo (or trio, or whatever) wasn't a measure of how well you tricked them?THANKS REALLY A LOT FOR THIS GEM!
>>47965006See you in two weeks Akira! As always another great thread!!
>>47965006WHAT?2 WEEK TO GO ???bad Akira!I'm waiting for the rulebook
>>47965006See you around Akira!
>>47965006THANKSREALLY A LOT
>>47964847>>47965006Man I just don't even know what the fuck anymore. You've managed to subvert expectations more times than I expected. Almost feels like I'm playing a VN written by Hideo Kojima. I don't even know how I feel about where things are going or how this has played out, but I can't stop now. Gotta see where this goes. I do hope we can collectively get our shit together. Seems like we're gonna need to seriously work as a team from now on if we're going to have any hope of surviving all of this. Which means we're probably doomed.At any rate, see you next time, Akira. Although I don't agree with absolutely everything in how this quest has been run so far, I nonetheless appreciate you taking the time to make it and run it for us.
At least the tripfag wasn't around for this."Oh shit, I think I know who this guy is." can never be followed by anything but pure garbage on an anonymous imageboard

>>47965141It's a preview from the rulebook?If yes, it would be great.1/19.IT JUST BEGUN
I have to reread tomorrow morning the whole thread.But when I said>>47964562> I still have to understand if I like how things went or not.It became a full YES !
Hi everyone! This is my first Katawa Yandere thread!
>>47965285It's over but the old ones are archived here.>>47961237
>>47963904>[X] Slip in stealthy for an ambush.
>>47965285Glad to see a new face, though this particular thread has already reached its conclusion. You're more than welcome to read through the archives, get up to speed on our current route, and join us for the next chapter however. Will most likely start two weeks, and the time of day should be about four hours prior from now.
>>47964650>dat filename>dat TWISTAkira. You are a fucking genius.
>>47965285You picked a good one to start, it was a pandemonium!Now you have 2 weeks to read the archives (at least this route), we'll wait for you!
>>47961477http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/47842975/#p47843214http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/47842975/#p47845683You did, in fact, say that, though. More than once. And you are, in fact, a shitmonkey. It was just beautiful how easily Akira upstaged you using like a tenth of the posts you did.
>>47965708why are you talking in third person and referencing posts from old threads that you can't verify ownership of?
>OP spends 4 hours trying to dig up old posts that don't relate to the thing he said
>>47965803You're the only one in these threads unfamiliar with the concept of capitalization.You actually got called on it last thread. And forgot about it again in this one. I have to ask: Are you literally retarded?
>>47965971as we all know, >>47961477 is clearly uncapitalized. dig a deeper hole, this sounds fun
>>47966009and both the posts in the archive at >>47965708 are also clearly uncapitalized, as we can all see
>>47964874You magnificent cunt.I'd been thinking we'd have to take down Lilly at some point. After all, EVERY girl is yandere, if not always for Hisao.She didn't seem sweet on broken heart boy, and didn't seem hot for Hanako, so I'd been confused for a while.
If people got that salty over Lilly before how mad are they going to be when we ACTUALLY kill her?
>>47966029>>47966009>>47965870>>47965803A week ago Akiratrip was trying to say things about posts he insisted were samefagging, and they were also just plainly not even close to true.Him doing it again should come as no surprise.
