Last time on DWMA Quest, we stopped in the middle of talking with Asuka, on behalf of Grayson. The conversation was as follows:You enter Deathbucks. The smell of coffee, baked pastries, and cinnamon innediately assaults your nose. It's pleasant, and really makes you want some coffee. You act like you're about to sit, when you 'notice' Asuka nearby, and head over to her. She seems to be reading a white book."Hey Asuka, how's it going? Can I sit here?"She looks up at you. "I suppose so. What can I do for you, Tony?"You smile. "Hey, you called me by my first name. Good. So, you come here often?"Asuka takes a moment to respond. "Yes, but I assure you, it is just because it is the closest cafe to the Academy." You notice a faint redness to her cheeks as she says this."Well, it's my first time here. What would you recommend?"Asuka taps a finger to her lips. "Hm. If you order coffee, I'd stick with the colombian dark roast. Less caffeine to ruin your sleep later. For food, either the raspberry tart if you want something sweet, or the turkey club if you want something substantial."You thank her, and at that moment, an employee comes up next to you. He's a slight man, dressed in a style reminiscent of a butler. You order the coffee Asuka suggested, as well as the raspberry tart. You feel like having a bit of a treat. As the waiter leaves, you notice Asuka's eyes linger on him for a bit longer than should be proper.You smile a little. You have an idea. "What's wrong, Asuka? You seem to be interested in that waiter..."Asuka's eyes snap back to you. She's blushing a bit more noticeably now. "What? No! I... I was just looking at the uniform! It's really well made, is all..."You lean back. "All right, I'll stop bullying you about it. Although, speaking of fancy dress... Have you heard about the Winter Ball yet?"Asuka clears her throat. "Yes, I have. I was actually considering having something made for it at your place of employment."You shrug. "Trevor would appreciate the business, and he can even make it combat-capable. I'd say it's worth it. However..." You lock eyes with her. "You planning on going with anyone?"Asuka's blush returns, though she doesn't react otherwise. "No, I haven't thought about it at all. Why?"You shrug. "I was just curious. I know Grayson really likes you."Asuka scoffs. "That meathead? Please. He'll get bored of me and wander off to some other pretty face soon enough."Hm.
>I don't think Grayson is as much of a 'meathead' as you might think. He just seems to struggle to express himself in other ways.>Divert her attention. "I bet he'd clean up nice in one of these uniforms."You know, Grayson isn't a TOTAL meathead. Sure, he's super passionate about working out, but he's pretty passionate about everything he does. One hundred percent, all the time." You sigh and scratch your cheek. "Sounds exhausting, but that's just me."You notice Asuka's eyes occasionally flicking to the waiter nearby. "You know..." You lean in and whisper conspiratorially. "I bet Grayson would clean up reeeeaaaaal nice in one of these suits."Asuka stiffens immediately. "What? I wasn't... I didn't..." She waves her hands wildly in front of her, as if to ward off your perceptive senses.>Bully her more. Tease about how Grayson would look. Imply a butler fetish.>Ease off, go back to smalltalk.>Oh look, coffee is here. Let her cool off as you enjoy the flavor.>Write-in?
>>1020726>Oh look, coffee is here. Let her cool off as you enjoy the flavor.
>>1020726>>Oh look, coffee is here. Let her cool off as you enjoy the flavor.
>>1020726>Bully her more. Tease about how Grayson would look. Imply a butler fetish.BULLY THE SLUT INTO SUBMISSION.
>>1020726>>Bully her more. Tease about how Grayson would look. Imply a butler fetish.Eh, why not
You smile as Asuka's face colors slightly pink all over, but you let it be, for now. The seed has been planted. And just in time, a girl in a frilly pink outfit brings your order. The raspberry tart is pretty damn good, though you're not really the best judge of good food. You glance over at Asuka, who is finishing her coffee."You were right, this is really good. I should come more often." You sip your coffee in between bites.Asuka breaks the silence. "How are you progressing, Tony? I imagine having two partners is difficult."You grin. "Well, last time I gave it a shot, I got messed up pretty good. Been thinking I should get better control of my power before I hurt myself permanently."Asuka nods sagely. "A wise choice. It wouldn't do to lose your talent."You lean back in your chair, swallowing the last of the tart. "Why, Asuka, was that a compliment? I'm honored."She scowls at you, but her eyes don't match her expression. "Don't get used to it. You're just not a complete disappointment, is all.">Offer to walk her back>Leave and let Grayson "run into her">Leave and update Grayson on the conversation
>>1020902>Leave and update Grayson on the conversation
>>1020902>Leave and let Grayson "run into her"
>>1020902>>Leave and update Grayson on the conversation"Get a suit. She'll be eating outta your palm in no time."
>>1020902>>Leave and update Grayson on the conversation
You stretch and stand. "It was nice talking with you, Asuka. I'm gonna get back and squeeze in some study time before bed. Don't ogle the eye candy for too long, okay?"Asuka doesn't look you in the eye, blushing again. "Please don't embarrass me further, Tony."You chuckle and walk out, waving to her as you do. You're scarcely out of sight of the building when two strong hands grip your shoulders, and Grayson looks into your eyes. "Well? did she say anything about me? Did you work your magic?">Joke. "Sorry man, I accidentally seduced her. My bad.">Honesty. "She thinks you're a meathead. I tried to convince her otherwise.">Make a plan. "Looks like we gotta get you a job, bro.">Write-in?
>>1020994>Make a plan. "Looks like we gotta get you a job, bro. She likes Butler's from what it seems and you got dat ass better then grass."
>>1020994>Honesty. "She thinks you're a meathead. I tried to convince her otherwise.">Make a plan. "Looks like we gotta get you a job, bro."
>>1020994>>Make a plan. "Looks like we gotta get you a job, bro."
>>1020994>>Honesty. "She thinks you're a meathead. I tried to convince her otherwise.">Make a plan. "Looks like we gotta get you a job, bro."
Does no one want to bang asuka in addition to the other girls?Shit, let Grayson find someone else or hook up with asuka naturally. You match making anons are gay.
"Well, man, first of all she thinks you're a meathead." You start, removing his hands and settling into a slow stride back to the Academy. Grayson quickly falls into step next to you. You find yourself reminded of a lost puppy, despite his muscles. "I tried to help dispel that, but I don't know how well she took it. So... I have a plan for you."Grayson beams at you. "Great! What do I gotta do? Beat up some punks? Do a hundred pullups?"You smirk. "Get a job."Grayson freezes for a second, then resumes walking. "Come again, bro?"Your smirk grows. "She has a thing for guys in snappy outfits. You work at Deathbucks, and she'll have to notice you. Might even have a think for butlers or servants."Grayson thinks for a second. "But... That leaves less gym time..."You shrug. "Is she worth it?"Grayson immediately grins widely. "Yeah, she is! Okay, first thing tomorrow, I'm applying!"---------------------------------------------------You sit in class one morning, still yawning sleep out of your eyes. Shinobu is reading that white book, and Kia is plastered to your arm, like always. Satoru seems to have a plan in mind for today, as he is standing in his desk, staring at the class as the last of you (Robert, still bleary-eyed from staying up all night playing that harem game of his) shuffles in.Satoru clears his throat, and speaks, crossing his arms over his chest. "All right gang, we're having a bit of a test today! Let's all get outside! Meet you at the Academy steps!" He strides confidently out of the room, faster than anyone can digest his words and ask questions.You all start to get up to follow him. >Talk to someone during the walk (Who?)>Get to the action
>>1021118>>Get to the action
>>1021118>Get to the action
>>1021118>>Talk to someone during the walk (Who?)>Robert
You soon find yourself in a loose group with your classmates on the steps of the academy. Satoru looks very smug."All right class, here's the deal. You're all gonna have to complete a task. Winners get a special reward, losers get to fight for my amusement. Sound good?"Asuka speaks up. "Actually-""GOOD!" Satoru claps his hands together. "Now, pair off into teams of two. Meisters have to pair with Meisters, Weapons with Weapons. We will have one Meister alone for this. Any volunteers?"You see everyone begin to eye each other. Better act fast if you want a choice here.>Pair with Grayson>Pair with Emi>Pair with Tiffany>Pair with Steven (he still dislikes you)>Volunteer to be alone
>Volunteer to be aloneWe got this
>>1021220>>Pair with Emi
>>1021220>Volunteer to be alone
>>1021220>>Pair with TiffanyDid we meet her yet?Lets get to know her
>>1021220>>Pair with TiffanyTime for crazy.
>>1021233She's the crazy one obsessed with violence
>>1021231I'll change from Emi to Tiffany
>>1021220>>Volunteer to be aloneWe're fucking Tony Starbrine dammit
>>1021220>Pair with Tiffany Failing that>AloneAs I recall we get on okay.
>>1021220>Volunteer to be alone.
You step forward and hold a hand up. "I'll go alone, sir."Satoru gives you an approving nod, and you can feel several eyes on you, which soon fade as the others pair off.You glance around. Seems like Steven is paired with Tiffany though she doesn't seem impressed, with Emi and Grayson doing... a team flex? And, on the Weapon side, Kia has paired with Robert, Shinobu is with Asuka, and Melvin, the quiet longsword boy, is with Trevor, the black boy with the nice suit (though he isn't wearing it today). Satoru claps his hands. "Good! That was easy. Now! Here's the test!"He gestures out over the city. "There's three flags out there! Each is guarded by someone who will stop at nothing to defend it! Get the flag and get back here with it to win. The further a flag is, the weaker the guardian. The closest one will be the strongest. Get it?" He puts an unlit cigarette in his mouth and smiles. "You have one minute to prepare!"And he vanishes. Probably sped off to be a guardian. Damnit.>Go for the closest. You can get this done fast.>Go for the middle one. Might have to search a bit, but it's a nice balance.>Go for the far one. Not likely that people can outspeed you there, and the weak guardian might mean you have a good shot of getting the flag.
>>1021336>>Go for the middle one. Might have to search a bit, but it's a nice balance.
>>1021336>Go for the closest. You can get this done fast.
>>1021336>Go for the middle one. Might have to search a bit, but it's a nice balance.
>>Go for the middle one. Might have to search a bit, but it's a nice balance.Greyson and emi are probably going for the strongest.Shinobu's group and Melvins group will probably go for the easier opponent.While someone else fights the middle we can go for our stealthy street swipe and not even have to battle
C-Can't we just ambush the first pair of nerds to get a flag and steal theirs before they make it back?
>>1021364That is an option, yesWould Tony do that?Maybe.Anyways, I'm done for the night, but there will be more tomorrow! You'll get to beat up your friends! Or have them beat you up, since it'll be two vs one...
>>1021364Only nerds need to steal from other nerds, nerd!
>>1021364considering we have interact with these people every day... probably not a good Idea unless its that one dude who already doesn't like us or we manage it without being seen.
>>1021377I guess this means we gon show them how rats survive
>>1021336>Go for the middle one. Might have to search a bit, but it's a nice balance.witch speed + soul sight should allow us to find it pretty quickly.
Oh, before I forget: Twitter is @Lord_Quests. I post when I start every time now, so if you want warning, follow there. I know, I hate it too.
>>1021336>>Go for the far one. Not likely that people can outspeed you there, and the weak guardian might mean you have a good shot of getting the flag.
Guys why don't we just take a nap? We're going solo and if we go to the closest well have to fight satty two times if we get our ads handed to us the first time.
>>1023783We head towards medium, we hide, we steal the flag while the others are fighting for it.
>>1023786Nah m8 I'd say we're above thievery for self gain. Now thievery for self sustainment like food and water Tony might have stole back in the day was for survival.Except the panties, that was for entertainment purposes.
>>1023805We're taking a handicap, so we're playing smart.
You take off into the city, your speed still far above the rest of your classmates. You weigh your options for a brief moment, then decide: The middle flag is the safest. The far flag leaves too much time to be ambushed on the way back, and the closer one is probably going to have Satoru guarding it. That leaves one option, and if you're fast enough, maybe you won't have to worry about your friends getting in the way.You activate your soul sight and search for the flag. It isn't long before you find it in a roped-off plaza. Standing in the middle, with a smirk on her face and a green flag looped through her belt, is Akemi.Damnit. You've seen her fight. She's faster than you, and she's probably already noticed your approach. You have a second to decide how to handle this.>Rocket into the arena at full speed, snatch and run.>Charge into a punch to the face>Stop and cast Combat Precognition>Calmly walk up and say hello>Write-in?
>>1025420>Charge into a punch to the facerip
>>1025420>>Stop and cast Combat PrecognitionLet's go.

>>1025420>>Stop and cast Combat Precognition>>Calmly walk up and say hello
You skid to a halt outside the roped area, and reach into your soul. Instead of directing the wavelength you find there, you start to chant your mantra while pulling on that small part of you connected to magic. You can feel energy filling you, and you direct it how you learned before. Just like last time, the energy seems to fade, but you know it was done properly. You open your eyes and see Akemi staring at you blankly."Tony, are you a god damn WITCH?"Uhhh oh. Might want to handle this. She didn't react well when she heard about Layla watching you back in London either.>"Uh, hello to you too?">"No. Definitely not. Maybe. Don't worry about it.">"Listen, I can explain...">Charge in and fight without explaining. Maybe it's a trick.>Write-in?COMBAT PRECOGNITION: 3 TURNS REMAINING

>>1025465>Charge in to secure the flag, No chill. She's distracted.
>>1025465Nope! Apparently I am distantly related to one though. Figured I should use this stuff for good. Can I get that flag real quick though?
>>1025465>>1025474This seems fine
>>1025474This is good
>>1025465>charge in with no explanation
>>1025489Maybe with less insulting of the intelligence. She's been nothing but friendly, but we did just cast witch magic, which is scary and weird.
>>1025474This but call her a retard instead
You decide to deflect the question with a technical truth."Dudes can't be witches! Ask Teach or Lord Death if you're so worried about it, but I'm not gonna yell about it on the street. I'm still me."Akemi seems to relax a little. "How about you treat me to a beer after this and tell me about it then?"You smile. "I'm still 16. You'll have to take me somewhere I can buy it first. I'll tell you later, though, okay?"You jump into the roped area and dash towards her...>roll 1d100, best of 5!

You streak in like a blonde bolt of lightning, eyes focused on the little triangle of green on Akemi's black leather outfit...You take her by surprise as you duck under her high kick, which would have caught you in the face, and you turn your momentum into a roll. Your hand closes around the flag, but Akemi manages to move at the last second, right before you grasp it. You spring up from your roll, launching yourself over Akemi's head, and see that she had another, lower kick, meant for your back. Her eyes are wide."What was that, Tony? You're way more skilled than before..." She darts forward to strike you out of the air with her fists, but you angle your arms to deflect her attack, and land inside her guard."Nothing fancy. Just giving myself an edge. Wouldn't be able to keep up with your speed otherwise!" You manage a chuckle and feel the magic pull on your wrists. You follow the flow, and your hands reach the flag again. This time, you get a firm grip, tearing the prize loose.Akemi is stunned for a moment, and then she drops her arms. "Holy shit, kid, that was pretty good. You got me." She laughs a little, and adds, "Now, if I had Daisuke, you'd be dead. Don't underestimate having a weapon, you know. You're twice as effective just by holding your partner."She smiles, and looks over your shoulder. "Speaking of partners, you should get going. They're coming for you."You scarcely have time to turn around when you hear footsteps, and two figures round the corner.It's Kia and Robert. There's a short pause, where they look from Akemi, to the flag, to you. You glance between them, and then at the flag in your hand. You stuff it into your pocket and ready a stance.ONE ROUND LEFT ON COMBAT PRECOGNITION>"Heeeeeeey guys!

You aren't going to stick around now that you have the prize. You're faster, uninjured, and you really don't want to hurt your friends."Heeeeeeey, Kia! Robert! Nice to see-"You activate every bit of your Soul's energy, and let magic flood your system as well. You rocket off into the air, flying above the buildings. You take a moment to appreciate how much power magic gives you, and it hits you that maybe this sort of power is why so many magic users go mad on it. You land heavily on a roof and jump again, landing on the main street leading to the academy.You're running to the stairs... when you sense, rather than see, something coming at you from the side.>Roll 1d100, best of 3

All the good rolls used up on the un-critable moment I see.
You feel something collide with you, but you manage to roll with it and avoid most of the damage skidding across the street would have caused.You wind up tangled in a heap with something warm... and soft... and it smells like pomegranate... In fact, your hand is grasping something extremely soft-Oh.Tiffany looks at you from her position half-under you, and smiles. "Aren't you forward today, Tony?"You compose yourself externally, and slowly remove your hand. "I was about to say the same of you. That was something I'd expect from Kia."You hear a cold voice from behind you. "Tony, stop thinking with your dick for once and use your brain. We have you outnumbered. Give us your flag."Shit. Steven is right there and you're basically prone. This is very likely to get ugly.>Full power, try to fling ourselves away (Moderate roll)>"What makes you think I have a flag anyways?"

I wonder when the obligatory R63 thread will happen.
You focus your wavelength and magic again, and shove into the ground with your hands and knees. You manage to disentangle yourself from Tiffany, but you go spinning end over end into a nearby wall. Luckily for you, the wall doesn't break apart (props to whoever builds these things), but you feel waves of pain course through you as you bounce off and hit the ground. You're back at a neutral position, but Tiffany is back on her feet, Steven is closing in with murder in his eyes, and you're stuck between them."Tony..." Tiffany purrs. "You're strong, but this will go so much easier if you don't resist. I'm stronger than you are, and the strong take their due."Steven growls. "You'd better listen to her. Give me a fucking reason to pay you back for humiliating me."Shit. What to do here...>Charge Steven. He is an unknown here, and you'll need to even the odds.>Charge Tiffany. You don't think she's bluffing about her strength.>Wait for them to make the first move.>Cast Combat Precognition, hope they don't realize what you're doing.>Make a break for it.

You look between the two people bearing down on you, and decide, yet again, to be pragmatic. You launch yourself into the air over Tiffany's head, trying to suppress the aching in your side as you clear her attempt to grab you. You land awkwardly on the ground next to the stairs and dart up, taking the steps four at a time as the magic propels you.You spare a single glance towards Tiffany and Steven. The tall redhead is screaming unintelligibly at you, and Tiffany seems... disappointed. Huh. Guess she likes to fight.You reach the top of the steps and are faced with Emma, Satoru's wife and the nurse of the DWMA."Well, look at what we have here. Of course you'd be the first one back, Mister Starbrine. Fucking proud of yourself? Here, gimme the flag." She holds out a hand.You reach into your pocket and hand her the scrap of green cloth, and she examines it. "Huh, looks real. There's a surprise. I'd taken you for the type to not take this seriously."You blink. Is she just trying to insult you?"So, you hurt anywhere?" She eyes you critically.>"Slammed into a wall. Just sore.">"No ma'am.">"Hey, I'm the first one back. What's with the insults?">Write-in?
>>1025902>"Slammed into a wall. Just sore.">"Whats with the insults?"
>>1025902>>"Slammed into a wall. Just sore."
>>1025902>Just sore, what i do to piss you off this time Mom?
>>1025902This better not be one of those "anyone could be a witch" betrayal kind of bullshit lessons.
>>1025902>>1025902>>1025918>'Slammed into a wall, Just sore. So what did i piss you off this time Mom?
>>1025902>"Slammed into a wall. Just sore."
"Just sore. Slammed into a wall." you wave her off. "I'll be fine. Although..." You frown. "What did I do to piss you off this time, Mom?""Oh, sure, I'm soooo impressed with yo- wait, what did you call me?" She freezes.You lock eyes with her. "You heard me."She opens her mouth, then closes it. She furrows her brow and pointedly looks away from you. You look away as well, pleased that you got one over on her.A few minutes later, you hear the sounds of someone running up the stairs. Grayson and Emi straggle up, panting. Grayson is bleeding from a large cut on his arm, and Emi is limping. Her face has a large shoe print on it.You grimace. "Satoru?" It isn't a question, but a statement.Grayson nods. "Satoru." He pulls a red flag out of his pocket.Emma immediately rushes over, pockets the flag, and places a hand on Grayson's chest. You watch, fascinated, as his cut starts to close.Emi is transfixed, as well. "How... do you do that? Are you magic?"The nurse scoffs. "No, nothing so strange. I can accelerate natural healing by many thousand times over by syncing my wavelength with your own. It would be extremely draining to most people, but my soul is able to regenerate nearly instantly. However, I cannot output much wavelength at a time, making my combat capabilities... mediocre, at best."Huh. That's the longest she's ever spoken without profanity.Emi's eyes are nearly sparkling. "Woooooaaaah! That's so cool! Can you teach me?"The nurse is taken aback, but smiles faintly. "Sure, why not. You'll probably never be able to use it like I do, but hey, it might save a life." Her face hardens suddenly. "However, you'll need to be at least cleared for missions before I start. It's an advanced technique, and misusing it could hurt you AND your patient.">Continued
Next up the stairs is Shinobu and Asuka, just as Emi is healed. They seem... completely uninjured. Huh.Grayson waves enthusiastically to Asuka, but she ignores him and presents a purple flag to Emma, who takes it. "Well done. You're both fine?"Shinobu nods. "Lord Death himself was there! At first, we were really scared, but I just asked nicely and he gave us the flag!"Emma sighs. "Yeah, that sounds like him. He's a dork."Shinobu sits down on the ground next to you. "How did it go, Tony?"You can't help but smile a little. "I beat a two-star student, and then escaped from Kia, Robert, Tiffany, and Steven."The purple-haired girl's eyes nearly bug out. "You had THAT much trouble? I feel sorta bad. All we had to do was ask nicely..."You wave it off. "It was probably a trap for reckless students. If you had charged, he'd probably have sent you flying."Shinobu thinks for a moment, then smiles. "It's good that I stopped Asuka from doing that, then!" She leans against your side. "So, I heard you had a date with Asuka at the cafe. Care to tell me what that's about?">Include her in your attempt at matchmaking>Change the subject
>>1026014>Include her in your attempt at matchmaking our Bro, but away from the others. Make it seem you're giving her a hug or something like that.
>>1026014>Include her in your attempt at matchmakingDon't worry yours are the only girls panties I currently have.
>>1026014>>Include her in your attempt at matchmaking
>>1026014>Change the subject.its all about the bro-code. (prompt grayson for a high five if he's near enough) also, we discussed some things about the upcoming ball. Have you thought about what dress youre getting yet?if anyone wants to make this better, go at it.. im not good at talking to girls.
>>1026014>Include her in your attempt at matchmaking
>>1026031>im not good at talking to girls.You're among good company senpai.
You whisper to her, "What, getting jealous? Don't be, I was doing recon work." Shinobu looks at you oddly, so you continue. "For Grayson. He's head over heels for her. Thought I'd help him out."Shinobu sighs. "I figured it was something like that. Guy couldn't be more obvious if he had a neon sign."You look down at her. "When did you become so... not a blushing mess, by the way?"Shinobu reddens slightly. "Since I became convinced that you actually like me."You're stunned. Shinobu takes the opportunity, and presses her advantage. "Besiiiiiides, you still owe me that favor~"You're fairly certain your face is red now. Great. You clear your throat and continue. "Well, anyway... Grayson is a good guy, and he really does like her. He can't shut up about her, honestly."Shinobu looks over at her. "She needs someone who will be her rock. Stability. Grayson seems... sorta wild, doesn't he?""You know, he does, but he's predictable. Dependable. She could give him a chance."Shinobu hums to herself, thinking. However, before she has a chance to talk, several people come up the steps. Steven, Tiffany, Kia, Robert, Melvin, Trevor, and Satoru are all in a group.Satoru claps his hands together. "Well done, teams! Looks like our winners are Shinobu, Asuka, Grayson, Emi, and Tony! Please stick around for your reward! As for the four of you, tough luck! As they say in certain communities... Get good, scrubs!" He smiles widely. "But seriously, you were all impressive. Better than I expected. You all have the potential to be the best class I've ever taught. I don't say that lightly."He gestures to Emma. "Those of you who didn't win, please get checked out if you're hurt at all, and get some lunch! That'll be all for today."Satoru then walks over to your small group of winners. Now, I'm going to be super generous. You all get one combat outfit from Dressed to Kill, the place Tony works nights at. The owner is an old friend of mine, so he's more than willing to make you each ONE item. However, I'd suggest saving up for several. They're great quality, but even then, they can get destroyed. Also, keep in mind that this is NOT for custom orders. You must grab an item off the rack. I'm not made of money, you know."Satoru gives you all a thumbs-up. "In any case, congratulations to you all, and I hope to see you continue to excel! Now go get some lunch."You head in to eat with your classmates, head spinning with ideas on what outfit to get...-------------------SESSION PAUSE-------------------It's getting late and I'm a bit tired. I'll be continuing this in a day or two, probably. Thank you all!
>>1026100Thanks for running.
>>1026100Thanks as always dude!
>>1026100Aight. Thanks for running and thanks for setting up a twitter.
>>1026100thanks for running.satoru said "as for the four of you, tough luck!" i thought that six people failed
>>1026159Oops, I meant six. My bad.Kia is sad she didn't win, but happy that you and Shinobu did. She's going to catch up to her, and even surpass her relationship with Tony! Just have to calm her heart first. Shinobu is happy. She's stronger than she's ever been, Tony likes her, and Kia likes her. She just wants to be a better weapon, and that book details the life of probably the strongest weapon ever...Asuka is conflicted. Grayson is irritating, but Tony doesn't seem like a liar, despite his background and upbringing... or lack thereof. Too bad he's spoken for, Daddy would flip if she brought him home. Would almost be worth seeing that.Grayson feels like a badass. He tanked a direct shot from Satoru, he's got a new job, and damn does he look nice in that outfit. Now he's just gotta play the part when Asuka shows up.Robert is having the time of his life at the DWMA. Even if he didn't win, he knows he can't stand up to Tony in a straight fight, so it's a good thing he ran off like that. Still, it's not like he'll ever have to go hand-to-hand as a weapon, right?Tiffany feels... what's the word... Blueballed? She really wanted to feel Tony's bloodlust. Maybe another time... might have to corner him.Emi thinks this was fun, but she didn't learn much new. She already knows how Satoru fights. She's curious about other people too. Emma was neat.Steven IS 1000% MAD.Satoru is happy to see his star experiment in training a magic-user do so well. Emma liked hearing someone call her Mom. Why did that hit her so hard? She might have to talk with her husband...
>>1026178>She might have to talk with her husband...SALT SON IS GO. HERE WE GO LADS.
>>1026178>Emma liked hearing someone call her Mom. Why did that hit her so hard? She might have to talk with her husband...MUH DICK
>>1026178>Tfw plan for Tony to have a real mother worked, It worked so well her desire for real kids kicked in. Fuck no, we're gonna be replaced. We're not losing mom again.
>>1026178>Shinobu is happy. She's stronger than she's ever been, Tony likes her, and Kia likes her. She just wants to be a better weapon, and that book details the life of probably the strongest weapon ever...>She just wants to be a better weapon, and that book details the life of probably the strongest weapon ever...>the strongest weapon ever...Oh dear god please tell me Shinobu isn't going to be taking tips from excaliber.
>>1026390He grew up in 1850's Britain and hung out with the toughest gang around you know.Taught Jack The Ripper everything he knew by enacting a massive dance number involving various ladies of the night.Afterwards he fought in the great war against the british that had betrayed him by killing his pupil and thus set him on a path that would end with him in a siberian prison where he met Putin and fought him numerous times.During a daring prison escape he was once again beset by tragedy as Putin, his now rival, was shot aiding a sick mother of three that had been unjustly imprisoned.This finally led him to forming The Beatles and record the hit song "Burning Love"

If anyone wants to suggest ideas for future pastebins (lewd notwithstanding) I'd appreciate it. I'll probably continue this tomorrow morning for a bit. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to.
>>1026100Alright guy's, here is the plan. We bribe him saying we'll use our employees discount on the clothing BUT inreturn we get more 1 on 1 training with him. We need to soak up everything we can from either magical or wielding our weapons and this is our best chance. Whoses with me?
>>1026875Sounds good to me
>>1026214the fuck are you on about?
>>1027090He wants Emma the Saltiest Nurse to adopt Tony, but if she has her own kids she won't need to.
>>1026809>future pastebinsI would like some day in the life ofs for the various side charactersAlso more Kia never hurts
>>1027124Thats fucking stupid but i'll feel bad for anon if his plan backfires like that.A sailor cussing adopted mom would be neat
>>1027161I feel no such guilt or pity and hope his plan burns like the hinderburg.
Hey guys, my computer is having trouble. I'm going to run in a bit, assuming I get this thing working. I'm on my phone currently, which would NOT work for regular updates.
>>1029198The QM curse continues
All right, I'm back.Now, what to do...>More lunchtime chatter with Kia and Shinobu>See about getting that outfit (at work later on)>A few days later, Shinobu cashes in that favor.
>>1032245> OutfitWe Original Devil May Cry Dante now?
>>1032245>>A few days later, Shinobu cashes in that favor.Time for us to be the bullied
>>1032245>>A few days later, Shinobu cashes in that favor.
>>1032245>>See about getting that outfit (at work later on)
>>1032245>A few days later, Shinobu cashes in that favor.
A few days after the flag test, you find yourself and Kia following Shinobu through the desert near the DWMA towards a local mountain range. She had come to you earlier that morning, saying she was cashing in that favor, and that she wanted you around in case something went bad. You were immediately apprehensive, but a quick reminder of your debt to her caused you to cave instantly.Besides, not like you don't appreciate the situation. You sneak a few glances at the girls as you help them climb the rocky terrain... Kia is starting to fill out a bit. She's not as shapeless as she was when you met her several weeks ago. She really is a late bloomer. And Shinobu... she was a bit on the soft side, but now she's got clearly defined leg muscles. She does a lot of running on the treadmill with Asuka. You're idly wondering how you got so lucky when you realize that Shinobu has stopped and is reading through that white book again.Kia leans against you and pants. "Ughhhh. It isn't summer anymore, but it's still pretty warm out. What are we coming up here to see, anyways?" You pull a water bottle out of the backpack you're wearing and hand it to the small blonde girl, and she drains half of it instantly. You're wondering the same thing. "Shinobu, mind filling us in?"Shinobu puts the book away and smiles at the both of you. "Well, it isn't like I expect him to actually be there... but there's a story of the greatest Weapon to ever live. He did such amazing things, and I thought that I could ask him some questions to figure out how to be a better partner myself."You scratch behind your head. "I think you do pretty well already, Shinobu... Ah well, what's the worst that could happen? He says no?">Continued.
You find yourselves at the mouth of a large cave. Shinobu checks the book again, and informs you that this is the right place. You head inside, though having tons of solid rock over your head makes you uncomfortable. A small ways in, you realize that it should be getting dark... but it isn't. Weird. You're about to comment on this, when you hear a sound... a small fluttering of wings.From around a corner ahead, a tiny humanoid form floats through the air. She's probably barely a foot tall, and really cute. Kia immediately squeals. "AAAAAWWWWWW IS THAT A FAIRY?"The fairy seems confused, and a little afraid. You briefly wonder if it understands you...>Introduce yourself to it>Offer it food>Ask Shinobu to look through the book and find out what to do here
>>1032295>>Introduce yourself to itI guess
>>1032295>>Introduce yourself to it
>>1032295I should clarify. Offering food means like... treating it like an animal whose good side you're trying to be on.
>>1032295>>Introduce yourself to it>Introduce yourself to itTry to introduce ourselves to it.
You clear your throat and approach the tiny humanoid. "Hello... uh... I'm Tony, this is Kia and Shinobu. What's your name?"The tiny being cocks its head to the side, before making some squeaky noises. Huh.You continue. "I guess we're here looking for a Weapon of some sort? You know anyone like that?"The fairy freezes... and then its face distorts into a look of pure disgust. You didn't think anything with a face could look that way, but this fairy clearly has an issue with your question. It points down towards the way it came from and flies off.The three of you continue into a large open room...
The whole area has a weird feeling to it. You look around at the slightly greenish walls, when Shinobu yells "There he is!" You follow her pointing finger to a white longsword stuck into the ground in the center of a raised stone platform. It's all very fancy looking.The three of you climb up and approach the blade. It looks very ornate, but also functional. Even if it's just a regular sword, it's not a bad one, as far as you can tell.Shinobu has the book out again. "So, apparently, only the chosen one can remove Excalibur from the stone. Guess that explains why he's still here after all this time... Anyways, who should try it first?">"Shinobu, you wanted to meet him. Try pulling it out.">"Kia, give it a shot. Your family is full of Death Scythes, so that's got to help, right?">"I'll do it, since I'm the only Meister here..."
>>1032323>"Shinobu, you wanted to meet him. Try pulling it out."Friends (I am assuming we are friends) don't take the spotlight from each other.
>>1032323>>"Shinobu, you wanted to meet him. Try pulling it out."This is Shinobu's show.>>1032325Friends for now. Fuckbuddies later.
>>1032323>>"Shinobu, you wanted to meet him. Try pulling it out."
>>1032323>"Shinobu, you wanted to meet him. Try pulling it out."
