Stage 127: Long Overdue, Do Over Long.You are Ryuu Ryukusa, and you are terribly awake. The only other person is is awake in your family is Er Yin-sensei, who is the one who told you to go back to sleep after you passed out chasing off some wayward kamuy who were causing trouble. Thoroughly (verbally) spanked, you might add. Er Yin is on her side next to you, her injured arm across your belly, as Kiki-hime sleeps curled against your other side. Kiku-chan is at your feet, radiating warmth, which explains why there are blankets and a pillow arranged at the foot of Er Yin's bed. Everyone save your sister is in the huge round bed, whi8ch has also been cleaned up somewhat. Your sister is in her room ….which reminds you that you should let her release Hebe Yumiko, her (most likely) ex-assistant into the wild so she can report to Oba-san everything Oba-san already knows. You also have a Kaga sorceress in your own Barrier to talk with at some point. She seemed far more level headed and disapproving of her clan's methods than the others. Hopefully she isn't as dull as she seems at first glance. You're still awake. Sleep is hard to come by since you started growing into who you were meant to be. Er Yin is sleepless for other reasons, you suspect. Pain might be among them; you can't tell if she's in pain without looking at her while she's awake, though you can feel the high levels of adrenaline in her blood and how her heart rate is higher than it should be while she is at rest.  Get up and do something – anything – about that. Admit you can't sleep and ask her if she would like tea. Let her rest, and slip out by yourself to do something, anything. Ask her if she's asleep yet. That will make sure she's asleep for sure. Try and sleep anyways. You really need it.

>>48517397 Admit you can't sleep and ask her if she would like tea.Hey XS. How are you doing? Other then the whole cancer thing.
>>48517397> Admit you can't sleep and ask her if she would like tea.> Get up and do something – anything – about thatI wish you the best XS
>>48517397Does Ryukusa actually need the sleep? I thought she basically never did any more.Also what are our immediate plans when we wake up?
>>48517656I think she doesn't technically need sleep, but it might still provide some benefit? It's a moot point, since it doesn't seem like we are gonna sleep right now anyway.
>>48517666Yeah, I suppose that might make sense. Relax and destress or the like.
>>48517397> Admit you can't sleep and ask her if she would like tea.>Offer to go to another room and talk>Kiss your sorceress wife.Hi XS!I wish you the best. Here's some spooky girls to make things feel better
>>48517709That girl is very spooky indeed.
>>48517397[X] Ask her if she's asleep yet. That will make sure she's asleep for sure.
>>48517775Meeting attactive fox again when?
>>48517795I'm sure we'll run into her in due time anon! Personally I'm looking forward to meeting Rie again.
>>48517795Dunno why, I love big wooden bead necklaces on anime women.
>>48517492>>48517501>>48517539It's s a small patch of malignant skin cancer, easily 'repaired'. Thank you for the kindness.SOP is remove the cancerous skin to the lowest layer and then graft some skin from another area there so the generic malfunction isn't repeated. They did the same for my mother, works fine, all under anesthetic.
>>48517879That sounds good. I'm sure you'll be cancer-free in a week then!
>>48517853We should do some cosplay for Akari>>48517879I'm glad for you
>>48517879As awful as it is to have cancer in general, I'm glad to hear it's one of the kinds that can be removed.Though I imagine that even if the surgery will be under anesthetic it'll still be itching/sore or something for a while afterwards, so my condolences for the additional discomfort being added.
[x] Ask her if she's asleep yet. That will make sure she's asleep for sure.[X] Try and sleep anyways. You really need it.[XX] Get up and do something – anything – about that.[XXX] Admit you can't sleep and ask her if she would like tea.[+] Kisses. Of course kisses. Duh. You wait for what seems like a reasonable amount of time, which is probably nowhere near such a thing, and run your tail alogn her smooth, powerful calf. “Asleep, Gin-Gin?” You feel more than see the smile, as your eyes are closed, but you hear the amusement in her voice with perfect clarity. “Of course I am, Ryukusa-sama.” “Uh huh.” To your credit you try and sleep: you meditate, you blank your mind, you even slow your heartbeat to three or four per minute. None of it works, unfortunately, and you can't really say you're even surprised. You sigh and roll over, giving Er Yin plenty of time to move her wounded arm so that you don't injure her further. Facing her, she rests her weakened hand on your hip, and you look at her face in the dark, trace the outline of the scar across her face with your gaze, stare into those sightless blue-grey eyes that gaze back at you with infinite calm. “I'm sorry, Er yin-sensei, I just cannot sleep. I need to do something. I want to help heal your arm, or make tea, or something. Anything.” You sigh and cup her cheek and she sightlessly preses her face against your palm. The sense of brittle care she takes in caring for the position of her bad arm is painfully obvious to you, even in the dark. “Would you like to have tea with me, Er Yin? I can make a fine cup of green tea, my sister's skill's notwithstanding. Though I hear Hime-chan is a fair hand at it to.”
>>48518249“Let us go before you wake the others, Ryukusa-sama,” she murmurs, turning her head to kiss your palm. You prevent her from doing so and turn her face to yours, kissing her softly and slowly, reveling in the strange softness and tingling taste of charged metal along your lips. She rises slowly and cautiously, worried more about injuring herself – or at least causing herself pain – than she is about waking anyone. You rise easily and silently, and you only pause long enough to talk to the one person who nearly waked up. “Stay asleep, Akari-niji-chan. I'll be back before everyone waken.” She makes a soft, sleepy noise and drifts back into deeper sleep. “Was she awake?” Asks your seer curiously.“Not really. She would have been if I'd taken any steps away from her. As it is she'll stay asleep. Mind you that wouldn't work for anyone but me, and I definitely recommend against trying it yourself.” You are nearly as dangerous unconscious as you are awake; Akari is far more dangerous unconscious than she is awake, because she simply reacts without concern for the well being of the person disturbing her.You and Er Yin slip into the hallway easily, walking with eerie silence through the rooms, though the slide of Er Yin's tail is unmistakable. Her hand remains on the wall as well, though lightly, more to guide her than because she is unfamiliar with the location. Your sister, Shoko-san and she have had more time to become familiar with the place.  Grab the medical supplies, and have her sit for you. Make tea first, you can add something to that to relax her. Ask her if she would like anything specific, or requires something stronger than tea. Ask her if she would prefer to take this conversation to her room. Yes, you know there isn't one yet, but you'll fix that. ….ask to see how her injury is doing and decide from there.
>>48518291> ….ask to see how her injury is doing and decide from there.

>> Make tea first, you can add something to that to relax her.>> Ask her if she would like anything specific, or requires something stronger than tea.>> Ask her if she would prefer to take this conversation to her room. Yes, you know there isn't one yet, but you'll fix that.Heya XS, glad to catch another thread live. Always a joy to read your stories.
>>48518400That's appealing anon, but is Er Yin in any kind of shape for lewdness right now?
>>48518291>>48518340I'll add tail-caressing, that's a good idea.
>>48518291>>48518400forgot to link>>48518449We should tend to her the best we can. Some soft, gentle loving and teasing won't hurt her.
>>48518687Yeah I suppose that's true.
[XXX] ….ask to see how her injury is doing and decide from there.[XXX] Make tea first, you can add something to that to relax her.[XX] Ask her if she would like anything specific, or requires something stronger than tea.[X] Ask her if she would prefer to take this conversation to her room. Yes, you know there isn't one yet, but you'll fix that.[+] Brandy, coffee, tea, or me, whatever most pleases thee. As you both enter the living room, she pauses, waiting for you to get ahead of her. You only glance back; you've seen her do this before, searching with her tail to map out the furnishing. With the door closed you ask in an only slightly subdued tone, “Would you like to sit on the couch? I want to change your bandages, if you don't mind.” She smiles faintly as she takes a seat on the edge of the love seat, which will still allow you to sit next to her to change her bandages, just much closer than perhaps is wise. Not because you'll do anything too terribly lewd, but because it's more close quarters than you should be for bandaging....oh, who are you kidding, you're a freakin' Water dragonette. You know EXACTLY what she chose the love seat. “And if I say that I do mind, Ryukusa-sama?”“Then I won't change your bandages.” That seems to startle her a little. “I have medical training, Er Yin-sensei, but I'm no healer, and I know that. You have every right to refuse me, and I'm not going to pull nonexistent rank. If you would be more comfortable in your room, we could continue there, rather than so close to our sleeping loved ones. I should warn you, I'm very likely going to spike your tea with something, so if you'd prefer something stronger than tea, you should probably let me know now.” You do start the kettle to boil....and then curse yourself for three kinds of idiot as you make the water boiling hot with a glance and set the tea to steep.“Of course you may, Ryukusa-sama. Please forgive this impertinent dragonette.”
>>48519098You collect the medical kit from the kitchen (undoubtedly placed there by Akari before everyone went to bed, because the one in the bathroom is going to be even more heavily loaded than this one is) and walk over to the chair, easily hopping onto the overstuffed arm and crossing your legs before you. Your tail slides to swirl lightly about hers, and she entwines her tail with yours agreeably enough. The faint tremor is there, caused by her overload of adrenaline, and you can tell she'll exhaust herself in a few hours. Taking off the bandages is both easy and difficult; physically it is terribly easy, because they are soaked in one of Yui-niji-chan's herbal concoctions that ha partially dried. You use your talons – cautiously, ever so cautiously – to slice away those you can't simply lift off. Once you get down to the injury proper, you frown mildly, unsure of what you are looking at. The wound hasn't changed in shape or size, for better or worse. What has changed is the consistency of her flesh. The tendons and muscles exposed and damaged by the weird flames your bother spat on her the same shape. But there is a strange luster to them, a silvery kind of shine. This is much more pronounced at the edges of the wound, where the skin is nearly silver in color and tone. The shine is less pronounced along the deeper tissues, but the exposed bones are definitely turning to silver.  Okay, so, is this how YOU scar, or is how all of your kind scar? Please tell me that your flesh turning to metal is normal? Well, it looks relatively fine; I imagine that everyone has asked about this already. Um. Not quite sure how to proceed here. Is petrification normal? Just do what you said you would, there isn't any need for talk.
>>48519357>[x] Please tell me that your flesh turning to metal is normal?Freaky! Sorry Er Yin, but definitely freaky.
>>48519357> Please tell me that your flesh turning to metal is normal?If everyone scars to their respective elements we will finish this quests as the drongonette power rangers
>>48519357> Just do what you said you would, there isn't any need for talk.I'm sure if it was an issue we'd have already known.
>>48519357>Does this mean I'm running out of time to heal you?Like even if we got healing powers, we wouldn't be able to affect the wound when it completely becomes metal?
>>48519357> Please tell me that your flesh turning to metal is normal?
>>48519386We've seen weirder.No rejection for our wives.>>48519357>Kiss Er Yin again. >You're not shocked, disgusted or anything. You can't shake a ping of guilt, however.>Does this means the Mill Pond Demon's power won't help you, Er Yin?
>>48519357[X] Just do what you said you would, there isn't any need for talk.
>>48519540Well, I didn't mean Ryukusa should say the freaky part, haha.
>>48519386For shame anon. There is nothing wrong with a little petrification, I mean look at our hand.
>>48519684Hey, what if Ryukusa likes it freaky, anon?
>>48519789sure i guess it can be hot.
Today's slow and comfy kind of RQ, huh.
>>48520669I don't know about comfy, since it's about Er Yin's suffering.Also the title worries me deeply.
>>48520699Like it makes me think of both missing a chance/something coming back to bite us in the ass AND time travel, which are things I'm anxious about.
>>48520669I guess. But I am so use to waiting for this quest it feels natural. >>48520699What part? the overdue bit? its just time for Er Yin anon.
>>48520724Also, since Er Yin is Chinese, I vaguely suspect that "Long" is a dragon pun.
>>48520724>time travel ??? >>48520733
>>48520699It's the kind of uncomfy comfy where you're injured but it's been treated and you're kinda used to it so it's not as noticeable and you try to focus on being comfy instead.
>>48520740Ignore the second link, fat fingers
>>48520724We missed the chance of having every member of the family helping with the problem but something bad would very likely have happened. This way we keep the smiles.
>>48520740Just the Do Over bit. Like if not time travel directly, it seems like we might be getting a second chance at something.
Apologies, passed out in the chair. Writing. I'll continue a bit late today in retaliation.
>>48521080If you need a break it's alright XS
>>48521080Uh, as long as you don't need to lie down or anything...we can wait for next session if needed.
>>48521080Normal no oxygen pass out?
>>48521080Thank you for your perseverance, but please don't push yourself too hard!
>>48521102>>48521100Yes, normal stuff.
[X] Just do what you said you would, there isn't any need for talk.[XX] Please tell me that your flesh turning to metal is normal?[+] Is time critical here?[+] Is this going to affect the power of a healer, specifically the Mill Pond Demon?[+] More affection!You gently begin cleaning the strangely glistening flesh of your seer''s – sister is ~a~ seer, but this is ~your~ seer – wound. You do so with the precise touch and calm of someone who is dealing with the most delicate of silk painting, or the most fragile glass. The sterile water goes exactly where you will, and you can feel the living flesh and blood where the injuries are most tender. More worrisome is the dead flesh and bone where the injury is destroyed tissue, but there is less of it than you feared there would be.It still hurts her, but you are as gentle as possible.“Your scarred flesh is a little odd, Er Yin,” you comment in the most casual fashion possible, a quiet question hidden in the words. “It beautiful, but strange, really.” And it is a kind of beauty, a glistening, glassy, lustrous effect. “I sincerely hope that time is not an issue.”“Hmm? Ah. No, Ryukusa-sama, that is natural to my kind. As long as the process is incomplete it won't cause any real issues. The full transformation will take months.” You've never heard of that happening with Void dragonette's so she must mean Metal dragonettes. “It is not painful or harmful, only strange. With Stone dragonettes it is jade, and with Wood dragonettes it is most often mahogany.”
>>48521272You slowly apply the medicinal that was left in the kit. At least, it says 'Er Yin's medicine' on it in a childish, rather sweeping script, so you assume that it is Yui-niji-chan's writing. “That sounds like it is something unique to China, I'm afraid. I've never heard of it happening here.” You apply the medication with the same perfect skill, and you do notice that she immediately relaxes as you apply it to the most sensitive of the living injuries. Anesthetic of some sort.Sliding your tail more closely about hers, you consider carefully. It would be easy, very easy to heal her using the power of Wood....but there is another way. You study the injury with your full Void Eyes, seeing how her meridians and flesh have been injured beyond mere flesh and blood and bone. You can also see the salve's more mystic properties, how it lends itself to supplying chi to those places injured. Yui's pure, innocent power infused into the material. You trace the flows of Chi and Shen through her body, where it should go, where it is meant to go.Er Yin stiffens and her tail tightens about yours, especially as you trace one of the more damaged flows of her life force. “Ryukusa....?” she murmurs softly.The destruction caused here is bad, but you can see....you can FEEL how it is destroyed, how it is meant to be, and how to remove the injury from her. It is so simple, yet terribly complex. Fire destroys the Void, and isn't what is here Void in the truest sense? Hush, I'm thinking. ….relax Er Yin. I promise it will only hurt a moment. Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not? Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over. Here, bite down on this, and trust me.
>>48521289>[x] Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.>[x] Here, bite down on this, and trust me.>[x] ….relax Er Yin. I promise it will only hurt a moment.Time to heal!
>>48521289Wasn't there other people we wanted to heal? Like that one girl who had some bad facial scars that also damaged her life force?
>>48521289> Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.> Here, bite down on this, and trust me.> ….relax Er Yin. I promise it will only hurt a moment.I have a feeling this isn't what most people expect the god of destruction to be pretty naturally good at doing but here we go
>>48521289> Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not?> Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.
>>48521325Anon makes a good point. Er Yin isn't the only one who needs helping.That said I am a bit sick of treading around the final element so I don't mind going full fire.
>>48521289> Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.> Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not?
>>48521289>[X] Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.>[X] Here, bite down on this, and trust me.>[X] ….relax Er Yin. I promise it will only hurt a moment.>[X] Its going to hurt a lot.Wanted wood but will settle for scraps now.
>>48521325Ginka, yes. On the other hand if we can heal Er yin with fire I don't see why someone in a similar situation couldn't be healed by it either.
>>48521388Sure we can just melt the flesh to look good.
>>48521289> ….relax Er Yin. I promise it will only hurt a moment.> Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not?>Fire Eyes>Call your priestess. Kiku should be here, both because Er Yin is incredibly powerful in Void and you will need her assistance, and because she's Er Yin's beloved.important>>48521325We need the Mill Pond Demon's power for that
>>48521289> Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not?> Here, bite down on this, and trust me.
>>48521289>>48521325> Hush, I'm thinking.Like I don't know, it's neat that we'd be using Fire in a new way, and I'm still not really familiar with what the elements mean in terms of who we are and the doom we will bring but I kind of feel like Ryukasa is more tied to Fire than Wood...But I'm still a bit wary that what feels most natural might not be the best way of doing things.>>48521388Er Yin is an -extremely- unique case, because her wound is actually becoming Void/Metal which is trumped by Fire. Ginka doesn't have that advantage so we'd just... you know, burn her.
>>48521380Don't feel like that, anon. >>48521388Ginka can't be healed with Wood.
>>48521406wait, I thought we'd automatically get healing abilities if we chose Wood?I need to read better.
Reminder that Ryukusa realised her clothes-making skills were essentialy destroying in order to recreate harmoniously, and that Fire is as much destruction than craft
>>48521452True, I'm not sure how applicable that is to healing though.
>>48521443It's a question of level. We'd get some healing abilities, but neither Yui nor Kiki could do anything for the problems of Ginka or Er Yin.>>48521289Adding to my vote here >>48521406:>When Kiku is here: "I am going to do something dangerous and untested to help Er Yin. Will you trust this foolish lizard?">Focus on the warmth of your family and the burning passion you have for them, and then the ones you have for Er Yin. It is how you handled the madness flames of your cousins, and it's never a bad moment to think those things.
>>48521289>>48521318I can support getting Kiku in for it as well, sure.
>>48521289> Hush, I'm thinking.> Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not?
Sorry for those who wanted Wood.
>>48521653Pretty sure we who wanted wood just wanted to heal so if fire works I am good for it.
>>48521763It'll work this time, but we'd never get true healing unless we succeed the Mill Pond Demon challenge
>>48521289I forgot to my vote here >>48521406>Kiss Er Yin, Kiku, and each of their bellies.
>>48521804and that doesn't really matter what element it is?
>>48521818>bellykissingAnon we're supposed to be doing a serious healing scene, not lewdness!
>>48521841Right. Let's get her nice and healed, then we can lewd her till the sun comes up.
>>48521653>>48521763I think another concern was wondering whether or not Wood would make the reckoning we are destined to bring down unto Japan easier to recover from?
>>48521289>[X] Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.>[X] Here, bite down on this, and trust me.
>>48521519True, but I don't think that Kiku can do what we're thinking of doing to Er Yin, can she?Like our Wood healing might have been a higher calibur?
>>48521882I don't think it would. We're the one destroying; taking on Wood would only add Wood's aspect to the destruction, which would be plague, presumably.As opposed to Fire, which would... uh, Fuji's a volcano, isn't it?
>>48521841We must practice for when she is pregnant. And Kiku is.Also, you should have learned by now that Ryukusa can do both serious and cute lewd.
>>48521925Wood would have provided optimal paths of destruction that minimized recovery times and let us better direct the reconstruction afterwards.
>>48521925I vaguely remember XS saying that choosing our element would also be choosing the nature of destruction we're to bring about.Like Water I think was always HorobiWood was AokigaharaFire was Mt. Fuji yeahNot sure about Void and Stone though.
>>48521929Hell, it's still practice for kissing the bellies of Ryukuza's already pregnant wives.
[X] Tell me if I'm over thinking this but....Fire also Overacts the void, does it not?[X] Here, bite down on this, and trust me.[XX] ….relax Er Yin. I promise it will only hurt a moment.[XX] Just using a bit of logic taught by videogames the world over.[+] It might hurt A LOT.[+] Fire Eyes[+] Call on Kiku-chan?You see the the flow, ebb and tide of Shen and Chi through her body, injured by a flame that was more madness than destruction. As much Void as Fire. And that's what makes this different than most other burn wounds; this was created as much by magic as by fire. And Fire ordinarily destroys magic. Your voice feels like it's coming from a million miles away as you drift in this place between thought and deed, a place you never really explored thoroughly. For you it has always been act or do not act. This is....this is what it must feel like to be a sorceress or a miko, maybe, to be in tune with something greater than yourself. Your not possessed, no, this isn't what that feels like at all. You've been possessed, you remember. “Please remind me if I'm wrong, but Fire overacts Void, does it not? No....that sounds wrong....”Er Yin is very still, as you trace the lines of her Shen and Chi through her body in places that no longer exist for her. “No, Ryukusa-sama, Fire overacts Earth, which Creates Void. Fire destroys Void.” “It does doesn't it....” you murmur thoughtfully, leaning into her slightly. “Here....” you gently slip two of your fingers into her mouth – finger from your left hand, your index and pointer finger. “Bite down on this.” You slide into the seat behind her, and wrap your legs about her waist, as you reach around with your right arm to hug her closely. She is blushing deeply, and you look at her calmly, your Void Eyes naturally giving way to Fire eyes, showing you the true nature of the injuries your cousin inflicted upon her.
>>48522089You channel your Shen through your right hand, the hand wreathed in fire and flame in your true form, the power of the volcanic forces of the ocean, the power which raised Japan from the ocean floor. But not JUST that power. You channel the Fires that erupt from your sapphire claws with the Waters you command, guiding the power through the places where her flesh no longer exists but her meridians and her chi flows still do. You burn away the magics that stain her spiritual essence, that infect her Pearl and her body. She bites, and she bites hard, shaking in your embrace as you hold her steady. Pauchi Kamuy is a creature of madness and curses, and your cousin is a thing of fire and rage. You are a creature of order and thoughtfulness, and creature confined by your role and abilities. But your abilities are not confined by that role. Inau-kun keeps telling you that you can change the world. Well, this is a part of it you can change for the better. Fire overacts Stone, and Stone creates Metal. Well, your claws are sapphire – you don't get much more Stone than that. And Metal and Void are one so....“It is all right,” you whisper softly to the sobbing near thrashing dragonette in your arms, as you rebuild the parts of her body destroyed by Pauchi Kamuy's cursed flames using your own Fire to destroy the magical forces that have kept your lover from healing. “I'm here.” Her talons dig into your immortal flesh, tearing and bleeding you, but that's not important. The destruction of her cursed wound is far more important, and destroy it you do, weaving Stone into Void, and burning away Void with the power of your heart. Because that's the source of Fire – the heart and pericardium. “Heart and Mind are the same, in your language,” you whisper to her....and then you let go of her.
>>48522163Awww, that seemed really damn painful. We're gonna have to do a lot of pampering to make up for it.
>>48522163Er Yin falls off the chair, onto her hands and knees, her unseeing eyes wide and her chest heaving. You feel....you feel surprisingly normal, as if you hadn't just tortured the master of your priestess and your would-be – will-be – lover. You look at your right hand, studying the blackened talons, chipped and scorched until they fade into sapphire, and you flex your terribly injured left fingers, though they're already healing. The ruby chip in your right palm, your blood tie to Yui-niji-chan is glowing. Er Yin sits up and you look over at her with a smile touching your lips. You are at peace, and she is in shock. Not the medical kind, though. She pulls away the bandages and opens her robe, looking at her shoulder and chest – rather nice chest really, you think dazedly. Er Yin traces the blue-white tracery of her meridians and Chi and Shen flows that are emblazoned upon her clean white skin. White as in alabaster, her flesh untouched by sun or elements, pale beyond the norm. you can see the veins and arteries under her new skin, and you lean back in the chair, curling up. “...h...how....” Your seer doesn't look towards you, it would be a futile effort you imagine. She only has eyes for her restored Shen and Chi at the moment, and you really don't blame her, having lost an arm yourself. Elements obey rules, but I don't have to. Elementary, my dear Er Yin. Does it matter, beloved? Just me being Clever, really. Hug her and kiss her and shake your head.
>>48522216> Elements obey rules, but I don't have to.> Hug her and kiss her and shake your head.
>>48522216> Hug her and kiss her and shake your head.> Just me being Clever, really.
>>48522216 Elementary, my dear Er Yin. Just me being Clever, really. Hug her and kiss her and shake your head.
>>48522216[x] Elements obey rules, but I don't have to.[x] Hug her and kiss her and shake your head.
>>48522216> Elementary, my dear Er Yin.This is absolutely the best time for a stupid pun.So wait, was this us choosing Fire as our third element, or was this more just our current abilities of Fire and even a bit of Stone?I forget what it was like when we chose Void.
>>48522216>[x] Does it matter, beloved?>[x] Hug her and kiss her and shake your headEven though it was worth it, ouch!
>>48521968>I'll answer this after session.
>>48522216>[x] Hug her and kiss her and shake your head.>[x] Elementary, my dear Er Yin.>[x] Just me being Clever, really>>48521929I personally enjoy the cute lewds more than the serious lewds.
>>48522310well now I'm scared.
So what brought on our flash of insight here? With the role of karma I get the feeling this wasn't as cheap or easy as it seemed.
>>48522358Eh, destruction was inevitable whatever the form.
>>48522377well yeah, but "destruction" is a broadish term if you're clever enough.
>>48522366I think part of it might be we just never looked into it?But I am a also bit concerned about whatever price we just paid, even if Er Yin is worth it.
>>48522366Eh, we probably dipped into the bad stuff making it so that Er Yin is no longer forced to use only her legs and tail to "play" with her pet.
>>48522412That's true, but approaching it from that direction, I doubt it would be so simple as 'fire = bad destruction, wood = good destruction' or whatever.
>>48522451Fire isn't evil anon, look at Kiku for an example. The only difference is that fire does not have the ability to think for it self.
>>48522216Did we only heal the wounds she got from our cousine? Or all the ones she has sustained?>Explain the process as well as you can. Your beloved sorceress needs to know.>"My family gave me many gifts, and I used them to succeed this. Being with you is another one I have to thank Kami and Kamuy." > I am ready to destroy Japan for my family and my duty, but tonight I'll settle on destroying your troubles.>Please forgive this foolish lizard for all the pain you had to endure waiting for her to act.>Kiss her again.
>>48522366We earned this discovery.
>>48522526How so, if you don't mind me asking?
>>48522559I hav the same question, I reread the thread to see if I missed some clever suggestion and didn't see anything. An insight from an earlier thread perhaps?
>>48522585Honestly having Chinese dragonettes have their wounded areas become their element which gives us a way to heal Er Yin and choose Fire right away makes me think we paid a very dire price indeed for this to work. Which is bad because we have some serious business ahead of us.
>>48522216I vote for something like >>48522498
>>48522498I like some of this but I feel like bringing up the destruction of Japan is a bit of a mood-breaker.
[X] Ryukusa, of course. You slide languidly and gracefully off the love seat and onto the floor and slowly crawl around Er Yin until you are kneeling in front of her. You lace your healing hands with hers – though your right hand aches, aches deep into the bone – and gently pull her closer to you by spreading her arms. You rise up a little to meet her chest with yours, and you look into the unseeing eyes that stare through you. “Because me,” you murmur softly, delivering a delicate lick to her throat before kissing her on the nose, making her blush. She 'focuses' on you, and you gaze up at her with a smile.“Totally elementary, my beloved Er Yin-sensei. Fire overacts Stone, creating Void, which overacts Water, Water creates Wood....Truth becomes reality, thought becomes action, action creates the body. Well, blood forms the body, really, after it is infused with Chi that stems from breath being forced through matter. Or something like that.” She laughs, a choked sob, and you mentally urge Kiku-chan to wake up. Er Yin could use her presence now. “It's not like I actually have to play by the rules set before me. I didn't really understand that before. Now I understand it very well.” You release her hands and she reflexively slides them around your waist as you slide your hands over her bare breasts, covering them gently.“Besides,” you continue softly, feeling the sleeping presence of your priestess leave your awareness as she wakes up. “It doesn't really matter how I managed it, does it? My cousin wounded you with something more Void than Fire, so it only made sense that Fire had to be a part of what healed it.” You lean forward, kissing the place where her Pearl resides, hidden beneath her breasts and her sternum. “We're both whole now. That's all that really matters. I may have to destroy Japan for my family and duty, but right now I would much rather destroy the things troubling my family. I think this counts, don't you?”
>>48522851She nods slowly, looking down at you, and then slowly leans the tiny bit forward necessary (it's so NICE to be the little spoon sometimes!) to kiss your brow. You catch the glint of your glowing horns along hers, something which they didn't used to do. “Hai, Ryukusa-sama. This counts. I welcome you in the fullness of yourself, my Mistress.” You smile as you look up at her, your heart bubbling over with love and laughter. “Well, I think I've still earned a spanking at least.” Her soft laugh is slightly giddy as well; you're drunk on power, she on her well being.Kiku-chan prances silently into the room, yawning hugely and rubbing her eyes with one oversize sleeve of her sleeping kimono. You turn your head, utterly relaxed, and she blinks golden eyes at you and her Master....and her hair immediately explodes into apparent flames. “Baka dragon, my Master-” Is fine, silly matchstick. Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses. Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix. Wait it out, let her have her diatribe. It's all groovy. Has the cutest booms, don't you agree. Well, the biggest at least.
>>48522866> Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.
>>48522866> Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.> Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.
>>48522866> Has the cutest booms, don't you agree. Well, the biggest at least.> Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.
>>48522866>[x] Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.>[x] Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.>>48522866
>>48522866>[x] Has the cutest booms, don't you agree. Well, the biggest at least.>[x] Wait it out, let her have her diatribe. It's all groovy.>[x] Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.All's well that ends well. Right? I'm sure Kiku will help kiss the lingering pain away.
>>48522725Agreeing with this sentiment.
>>48522866>[x] Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.>[x] Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.
>>48522866> Has the cutest booms, don't you agree. Well, the biggest at least.> Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.> Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.
>>48522936>All's well that ends well. Right?Eh, I feel like while the price we paid is probably high, it was also almost certainly worth it. We just need to figure out how best to carry that weight.
>>48522866> Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.> Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.
In terms of our associated elements, what exactly did we just do? I thought we already had fire covered?
>>48522866 Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses. Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix. Has the cutest booms, don't you agree. Well, the biggest at least.
>>48521968My guess would be earthquakes for Stone, obviously, and for Void, either thunderstorms or maybe something like a CME.
>>48522866> Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.> Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.> Has the cutest booms, don't you agree. Well, the biggest at least.>Er Yin, if you want to; I've had a few ideas on what we could do with Kiku. And we have a dungeon or two to test. Shall we~?
>>48523012What? I am on mobile so I am forced to copy anions posts for my choices
>>48523349Just weird you copied my comment too without adding something of your own anon.
>>48523239A CME would be stepping on Ammy's toes, don't you think?
[X] Wait it out, let her have her diatribe. It's all groovy.[XX] Has the cutest booms, don't you agree? Well, the biggest at least. [XXX] Needs kisses. Lots and lots of kisses.[XXX] Has been terribly neglected by me, something which I would like to fix.[+] You'll mention the dungeon later.“-isn't in condition for you to be a hentai dragon! She needs rest and to be healed!” It doesn't help that she is on the right side of you both, meaning she can't see what you have done very well at all. You flick your tail, which incidentally makes your black and silver kimono slide off of one shoulder. The movement catches her eye and she stares at your bared breast, then at her lover's breasts as you gently squeeze them. “....doesn't she have the cutest breasts? No, not Kiku-chan, you, Er Yin,” you clarify, making her blush deepen. She's terribly easy to embarrass when she's drunk on Chi and Shen. “They're bigger than hime-chan's I think, but that may just be because you''re so much stronger than she is,” you murmur mildly, as Kiku-chan's ire increases. You look over at her glowing eyes and lay your head along Er Yin's breasts, and she slides her hands lower, pulling you up into her slightly as she cups your derrière.“I think she really needs lots and lots of kisses,” you murmur to Kiku-chan, who is looking at you like you're either drunk or insane, and maybe you ~are~ a little of both at the moment. “I think you and I need to kiss her and make it all better.” Er Yin's soft, liquid chuckle is a little thrilling to hear against your ear, and you lash your tail, baring your shoulder completely and motioning Kiku-chan closer.
>>48523370Sorry anon even backspaceing is hard on a iPad
>>48523449She doesn't approach, but you feel her Fire eyes open, and what she sees is more than a shock, apparently: she rocks back as if struck, and both hands go to her chest, covering her Pearl. You lash your tail languidly, perfectly content to be held by Er Yin at the moment. “In my opinion, which, at the moment, is the important one, really,” you claim, only to get a playful nip from Er Yin, as she bites your ear lightly. “Owowowow....itaiiii.....” you whine without much force behind it. Kiku-chan is staring at the both of you still. “....anyways....in my opinion, I have been neglecting Er Yin quite a lot. Not just in matters of love, but in matters of taking care of her. So, I wish to fix that.” You lean back, though still covering Er Yin's breasts, which kind of leaves you unable to cover your own, but you're not really concerned about that right now. “I think I made a good start, don't you?” You slide your hand from her breast to her healed shoulder, more pale than she is naturally, traced by the lines of magic and power you helped restore. Kiku-chan's eyes widen even more, and she takes a slow, hesitant step closer. With a smile, you slide out of Er Yin's lap as Er Yin turns to face her diminutive lover.Then Er Yin's arms are filled with a bundle of fire dragonette, who is crying softly, eyes wafting steam. You move closer, and embrace them both, holding them close to you as they celebrate Er Yin's healing. You kiss them both, many times, and they kiss many times as well. Once the tears are finished you and your priestess and your seer hold each other close, reveling in the restoration of your family to wholeness. It's a start.>To Be Continued....
Thank you for reading, playing, and your forbearance. I will answer some of the most immediate questions as soon as I backtrack and find them, and will accept a few others as well.
>>48523484I feel warm and bubbly. Thanks for the thread XS
>>48523484Thanks for running XS! For now at least, a good end.
>>48523484Thank XS for the healing. Poor Er yin kept getting left out
>>48523484Thank you for writing, running, and your fortitude, you're the best.
>>48523484Thanks for running XS.
>>48523484Thanks for the thread. I hope things go well next week.
>>48523484>tfw QM use your pic after so longThanks for running!How well did we do, this session?
>>48523641I don't really feel like WE were particularly clever this session, so while I'm happy for Ryuu and Kiku and Er Yin, I feel guilty because I feel like we were given something we should have been able to figure out on our own a LONG time ago. Like in a way, we did run out of time.
>>48517795When you no longer need the scepter.>>48521325>>48521358Healing Ginka is not possible through any normal techniques - the injury is very old and was mundane to boot, and her body has 'adjusted' to it's current state. Not to say it can't be done, but it can only be done through truly supernatural means, and there is invariably a high cost to that.>>48521882>>48521925This anon - >>48521957is correct. However, that will not make the destruction any less pervasive or any less effective. In some ways it would make it worse.>>48521968Stone was earthquakes, and Void has been determined to be the chaos and insanity that revealing the spiritual world permanently to humans would cause.>>48522302This was using Fire by choice, as a tool for destroying harmful magics and curses, as well as exponentially increasing the Elemental Cycle though use of the Heart/Mind/Pearl. It is Ryukusa's element, a destructive force used as a beneficial tool. Ryukusa is slightly power drunk as a result though, and is now a fully fledged demigod (which is what rocked Kiku-chan's world).Mind you, Ryukusa is and always will be a thing of Water first and foremost. >>48522366Remembering what caused the injury, and a closer study with Void Eyes. You haven't had a chance to use the new understanding of Void Eyes that you learned from possessing Yui-niji-chan with Er yin's injury before this point.>>48522498Only those from your cousin, but those are all the ones she has now. She's been recuperating for a while.>>48522585>>48522559>>48522526Though possessing Yui you learned how to properly assess void Eyes, and once that was accomplished, you realized the wound was never truly just physical - it was actually a magical curse. Only Fire could truly cure such a thing outside of supernatural healing (which is not what Ryukusa did, incidentally).>>48522635You already paid the price (see previous thread). You are currently at 0 Stuff.
>>48523706Part of my job is to recall for anon what they forget Ryukusa has done and experienced. It takes a slightly insane mind to collate all the huge amounts of data (not all of which is even relevant data) I throw at you people, and it wouldn't be fair to punish you for it.
>>48523749>0 stuffMild worry.
>>48523749>revealing the spiritual world permanently to humans would cause.>revealing the spirit world permanently>permanently>PERMANENTLY
>>48523808To be honest, that sounds like it would be fun in its own way. Also terrible. But fun.
>>48523804It's not like we're doing anything difficult in the future, like fighting literal foreign devils.
>>48523749So is the destruction we're destined to bring about all three things at once?Because it seems kind of unwise to reveal that the supernatural exists at the same time as unleashing unspeakable destruction.
>>48523827>>48523808Did somebody say GENRE SHIFT!>>48523749To clarify: when you say "the spirit world" revealed "to humans", are we talking about the Japanese spirit world revealed to the Japanese, the Japanese spirit world to everybody, or EVERYTHING to EVERYBODY.
>>48523780That is very kind and one more reason I wish more QMs were like you....I'm still gonna try to take notes.
>>48523855No, that would have been the end result if Ryukusa had been attuned to Void instead of Water.>>48523869>Japanese spirit world revealed to the JapaneseThis. Other spirit-children would still be aware, but all Japanese would be. The Shinto religion would have boomed shortly after the reformation that would have to happen (the Emperor would also have to be much more well protected - he would LITERALLY be the spiritual heart of Japan).
>>48523967Hm, well I feel like Void would have definitely been the most fun in terms of end result but I imagine it'd be a dark path getting there.Ah well, I love Ryukusa the way she is now.
>>48523967Alright so spell this out for me because I keep getting confused, what is our current elemental balance and what does it mean?
>>48523967Damn, you had me HYPE as fuck for a minute there.Instead we just get some lameo fukin floods and shit.
>>48524060I mean, it sounds fun but would probably provoke unspeakable suffering and chaos.
Well find a way to make good with our Water destruction.>>48524060Ryukusa will protect this smile
>>48523967speaking of void, is Amatsu-Mikaboshi a thing in this quest?On a related note, is Amatsu-Mikaboshi a thing in Shintoism in reality? I'm still vaguely suspicious of him.
>>48524096Well yeah, but so will HYPER TSUNAMIS.Except when the water's gone and things calm down, you don't get a world where kitsune waifus visibly exist.
>>48523868well I know what I'm gonna watch next. Thank you for showing that statistically I should have already been into!
>>48524043Ryukusa is first and foremost a creature of Water: Deadly, Clever, able to move with whatever her environment provides her, unerring in her ability to direct herself. This lends itself to overthinking, reading too much into situations, and most problematic, finding it difficult to cope with suddenly changed situations that she thought she had already planned for.Howeever, as a demigod, Ryukusa is also strong the Fire and Void. Not nearly to the same extent a Void or Fire dragonette would be, but she is capable of using aspects of those elements in limited fashions: telepathy, foresight (her psychic choices are much more obvious once you know what you are lookign for), wind and lightning in the case of Void. fire lengs her the ability to unravel and destroy curses and magical effects, as well as to burn away decption, illusion, and potentially one or two other abilities. >>48524154Mikaboshi does exist, but he is currently quiescent. If Ryukusa had been Void, it is entirely likely that she would have been Mikuboshi's incarnation. Mikuboshi is the kami of the pole-star and primordial chaos, though he has been influenced by the Buddhists to bevcome associated with the morning star (Venus) and eventually became part of the kami that represents all the stars.
>>48524265So certain anon? Part of the idea behind this act of destruction was to bring the Japanese people closer to their spiritual roots....
>>48524387Hype cautiously restored.
>>48524359And she also just dabbled a bit in Wood right? Like just enough that she's pretty good at healing and has Wood Eyes still?...Poor Stone, so lonely, though at least we gave it a try here.
>>48524359>This lends itself to overthinking, reading too much into situations, and most problematic, finding it difficult to cope with suddenly changed situations that she thought she had already planned for....Wow, Water really was the perfect element for /tg/ wasn't it?
>>48524532>Poor StoneWell it is kind of our antithesis and all that, despite the dabbling.
>>48524532Also I forget, what would Stone Eyes have done?
>>48524642Give us reverse x-ray vision?Stone Eyes seem to be the most grounded hue of the eye powers, they mostly just show us what's on the other side of a boulder.
>>48524359Do we still have to expand our elements?
>>48524532She can actually use all types of Eyes as a result of beign a demiogod (which is also why she feels Eyes upon her).Actual spoiler. Inau-kun can feel and use all the Elemental Eyes as well, which she does not advertise.Ryukusa is clever enough to use the things she does know to help her heal yes. And she will always have her regenerative capacity (a Wood Effect) and Indestructible Left Arm (a Stone effect).
>>48524703I think we're a full demigod now and Stone isn't taking our calls anymore since we spurned it.
>>48524714Stone was never really on the table for adopting as a demigod. It's inimical to our base nature.
>>48524710That IS an actual spoiler. She might be the most dangerous person in our house.
>>48524703No, you are done, though you can refine Fire a bit.>>48524678Seeing through stone and the earth, but also understanding the basic nature of a thing (not it's truth or it's spiritual essences or how it can be manipulated or it's mental state, but simply what it is at it's most basic and fundamental self.)
>>48524760how's nature different than truth?
>>48524760I see. What do you personally think of our elemental choices?
>>48524387Inb4 born again christians
>>48524785You are, at your very basic nature, a human being. You can no more escape or change that basic nature than you can alter the path of the solar system through the galaxy. Your true self, however, is the spirit, mentality, emotions, and everything that makes up YOU. That CAN change, be changed, and transform. But you will always be human.This is a gross oversimplification, but it gets the gist across.
>>48524840They're the choices I have to work with and they are appropriate and true to Ryukusa's nature. Which would be true regardless of which ones you picked, because you picked them for her.
>>48525041What an elegant way to avoid the question. Heh. It's not so much wanting to have your judgement on our decision, but I'm wondering what Water/Fire/Void looks like holistically.
>>48525041How can Fire be used to help us chart the course of destruction an reconstruction?With Wood we could have charted a course that gets us the best outcome, even if it means certain areas are more devastated or the casualties higher. Fire is very good for us personally, but I'm disappointed that we won't have pseudo-prescience to give us an idea of what our choices will lead to, to better do our job.
>>48525187We'll just need to work it out, even if it the responsibility does fall on us, we'll have our family to help.
>>48525187I dunno, but it should at least be a cleaner burn. Purification is kinda the point after all.
>>48525025So wait, Ryukusa's basic nature is as a Water Dragonette and not a Demigod, right?
>>48525186Very cerebral, focused on the idealism and awareness of things rather than the physicality or potentials of things. "When you understand something fully, inside and out, you can then reduce it to it's component parts with ease, or prevent others from doing the same." Ryukuza is, by the nature of her elements, a creature of thought, action, and incredible destructive potency. By the time she understands the situation and her opponents, there will be very little they can to to survive, because she will udnerstand the truth of their existence, see their thought processes, and drown them in understanding (or swords, claws, knives, lightning, whatever is necessary to win).
>>48525187You do have pseudoprescience - that's an aspect of both Water and Void. What Wood provides is the ability to manipulate others and their goals, rather than your own efforts. Mind you, you do have Wood eyes, so you can manage this on a more individual basis.Yes, kiki-hime is extraordinarily manipulative. Ryukusa is very aware of this fact.Fire provides Ryukusa with the most basic element of destruction - but more importantly, she can use that particular element of destruction to affect those who might have 'charmed lives', magical defenses, and other spiritual backup and protection that would not suffer as much as they should (Oba-san, the Kaga, and the spirit-children who might take advantage of a weakened humanity). Fire is THE element of destruction, after all, and is fair in how it will heat everyone's homes and burn them to the ground.
>>48525250That is correct. She is a demigod by birthright, but her basic nature has and will always be a Water dragonette. This means she won't change much personality wise, despite her new abilities.They may, in fact, exacerbate her Water Dragonette nature.
>>48525344So basically, by not focusing on wood we lack some ability to wreck japan in such a way to result in ideal regrowth. And our lack of stone...?
>>48525369I did kind of fear that Fire will reinforce Ryukusa as she is, which... I guess there are worse things to be.
I'll answer anythign further ina few hours at work. I hope you have enjoyed and am glad if you have..If you haven't, then suffer more you should read something else.
>>48525488Stone is the foundation upon which all is built, anon. Fire inspires, Water nurtures, and Void give hope and understanding, but Wood is growth and Stone the foundation for it.There really is no 'perfect combination' nor is there a 'doomed set'. The checks and balances are inbuilt into all the Elements.

>>48525488The way I'm seeing it we picked the best elemental set for the long-term duties of Horobi, but choosing Wood and/or Stone would have been more beneficial in the context of coping with our "birth pangs", as it were.Under normal operating conditions, it's not Horobi's job to handle the aftermath and rebuilding, just to enact destruction is the most direct, effective, and appropriately comprehensive way. Fire and Void gives us the best tool set to identify, isolate, and excise that which needs to be destroyed.Personally, I'm fine with being specialized more towards outright destruction, even if it means we can't fix it up as nicely afterwards. We have a specific place and duty in the divine hierarchy, and we should look to making ourselves as effective in that context as we can first and foremost.
>>48525551I guess because it'd more passive, I don't see what a stone ascendant destructive reckoning looks like. Just a big earthquake? I'm not seeing the metaphysical angle.
>>48527901Upsetting the foundation of society and belief.
>>48527922Ah. Hmm, that would have been a good thing I suppose.
>>48524751>>48524714We don't need stone.We have Akari.
>>48527901Never heard of the Great Kanto Quake or the Great Frisco Quake? Those were disasters that made history....and neither had a controlling intelligence behind them. Both shook the very foundation of the cities they were in, and there is a very real fear of them to this day across much of the nation - in fact, many people prefer to live in hurricane and tornado country than risk moving to places earthquakes happen. Conceptually, >>48527922is accurate as well. The sense of ones' place in the world is incredibly vital to the Japanese, and without it they become quite lost. A towering ego collapses quite quickly when you kick the person's feet out from under them and don't allow them to regain their firm standing.
So I fell off this wagon, like, maybe a year ago, I'm not sure. I think Ryukuza kicked Susanoo's descendant in the she-dick, then armlessly fucked a girl; what part should I pick back up at?
>>48531224Start from where you left off? Honestly though you might as well just start from the beginning easier to keep all this shit straight. And it's a good read.
>>48531336No, I misspoke, I meant that I don't REMEMBER the number of the part where I left off. I remember pretty much all of the key details from before then, though.
>>48531536Here is where she madelove to Kiki-hime the first time (missing an arm). http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/33104099/ (line 31 in the pastebin)So presumably, the next thread after this one. You're welcome.
