Not an ounce of chaos or drop of blood spilt by some hungry beast or mad man, be they monster or human. The sky was clouded, and the sun couldn't be seen under the thick black blanket almost as dark as the night itself. A cold air, a hard rain. All in all, a rather normal day for the coastal city. Puddles formed in the rain slicked streets all the way up to the castle of the miller's itself.However there was one thing missing, from the country side. a certain castle that turned from rusted metal and sand blasted stones into pure, pristine frosting and gum drops, gingerbread and other kinds of sweets all in a moment for no seen reason.In its place was a pond growing in the dent it left in the earth. Ever since the moving castle vanished, there had been a fine tension on the air like a violin being played slowly and methodically. the people of the land went about their work as they did every other day. Until a stray kick in the castle, caused by a bad dream lady Maria was having in her breathless sleep woke up her wife, The Brausr herself, Layla from her morning nap which would usually last until late evening, when the blasted sun had vanished under the castle's walls. The cat eared, tanned woman whined as she woke up, reluctantly, tiredly and confused, trying to sit up to check her bedroom from danger before she got pulled down like an oversized stuff animal. Her ears twitched as Maria nuzzled into her hair, squeezing her neck. The Brausr smirked tiredly, closing her eyes to go back to sleep.Before her eyes shot back open, her nose twitching as her sudden jerking movement woke Maria from her dream"Pink bubble beam attack" She grumbled making an odd gesture with her hands as Layla crawled off the bed, her eyes glowing a deep, furious blood red "Wha? Why's my fluffy up so early? come back I wanna sleep more, lovebug"Maria's long black hair drapped over the green sheets, as she peeked out from the thick blanket on top of her. She watched Layla's tail swish back and forth as she glanced around quickly, moving about the room like a cat chasing a fly. The soft white dress she'd been forced to wear dancing around as she searched for...something. Maria smirked, enjoying the early morning show her wife was giving her.Until She frozen, her ears and twin tails standing up straight, the patterns in the fur of both rapidly changing as she snarled, her slightly oversized fangs glistening wetly as she began to growl.Maria covered her ears with her hands, knowing what was about to happen, trying to squirm under her blanket again, her somewhat plush frame curling up as her darling glared at the wall behind the bed like it owed her moneycont
>>1099892Vanishing into a blur of colors, Layla ran through the wall, as Maria curled up tighter, hugging her ragged plushie shaped like her partner in her youth.There was a pause and then a blood curdling screech, halfway between a hiss and roar echoed through the land for miles, waking up most of the city in surprise and some bred in fear. As well as all the millers"Momma?" Vera asked, lowering her bow as she turned her back on her quarry, frowning"....Captain, follow behind me" Alex said grimly, his eyes narrowing as he turned back to the castle, tossing his umbrella away, gripping his blade as he rushed back home "Something's wrong with my mother""Ah?" Karla yelped dropping her book down the flight of stairs she was walking down, holding herself in place as she looked around "is mom fighting again?""Oh, looks like I'm not the one who's in trouble now" Mizuki said smugly, holding Kozi as the thing clung to her, hearing the demonic tones in her "Friend"'s mother's voice "Fantastic...poor iris though""Wow.....I thought I wouldn't hear sis mad again for the rest of my life" Elizabeth said, blowing smoke as she glanced towards the source of the noise".....I feel like I'll need to fix something soon" Jasmine side, rubbing her eyes as she watched the tubby maid girl trip and stumble."WHERE'S IRIS!"

The smell of sugar is thick in the air, its clouding my head up a bit, but not as much as the shame blondie is feeling from eating a nice glob of honey I jammed down her throat for stowing away in my castle. I mean sure it wasn't her fault she got lost on it when she came back for a few of her things, or that her friends' did the same, but it gives me an excuse to mess with her and turn her into a blushing mess for awhile. "D..did you have to take my clothes" she stutters, biting into the back of her hand to stop it from touching her as a two of my maids wash her hair with warm milk....mixed with my special honey"its a bath" I sigh as I lean back, resting my arms on the edge of the pool, smirking as I catch the stubborn girl staring, forcing herself to bite down deeper into her hand "And I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to try and get blood in the bath, blondie""Fuck off" She whines, squirming in the now slightly milky waters "I was just trying to get my surfboard back, why do you have to be such a bitch?""Well" I say, wiggling my toes in the warm water as she glares at me "I just thought I'd treat you, since you are my"BULLSHIT!" Blondie yells, making me giggle "You just doing this to mess with me""Well yeah, but you do need to learn to relax a bit" I say yawning as I lay back, feeling someone braiding my head as Blondie looks to Mary, who's getting a massage next to the basically passed out Daisy"Aren't you two going to say anything?" Blondie asks angrily as the buff tan girl glances over half asleep"Why look a gift horse in the mouth?' She groans, as she gets her shoulders rubbed "better than cleaning up right'"Being trapped with her?!" Blondie yelps, as I see Maya swimming back with a mischevious look on her face....guessing she bit blondie for annoying her"Quite" Daisy says droolingI glance over my shoulder to see who's touching my hair, and see Lacy, with her black hair covering her eyes. She blushes and."Ahem?" Iris asks, sounding a little annoyed...probably because I'm sitting in a tub with a bunch of naked beauties "Mali? Are you don't waiting around? we were supposed to practice my shape shifting half an hour ago, and I don't like having to wait for things, you know...sorry if I'm interupting any of your fun""Oh, I'm just messing with Blondie" I chuckle as Blondie flips me off, so I snap my fingers, and get her dragged out of the bath by the two maids tending to her "But I'm done now""...what are they going to do to her?" Iris asks frowning as she peeks over my shoulder, watching blondie get pulled away, kicking and squirming weaklycont

"Depends on the maid I guess" I say shrugging, pulling myself out of the bath with my lower arms, water flowing down my back as I stretch, and try to get the crinks out of my backIris looks at me, smirking and chuckling when she sees I'm still wearing my usual clothes, adjusting her glasses and looking me in the eyes happily."You don't actually know do you?" She asks, wrapping her wings around herself, putting her hands over her chest almost like a brooch"Well, I mean I can guess and snapping my fingers means take blondie away" I say as Iris smiles "But other than that...yeah I don't""That specific? that doesn't seem like you mali" She says teasingly as I grin, looking down at her as she walks closer to me"Well, I like messing with her, but they're usually touchy feely anyways, so I as I said I can guess what they're going to do" I say pressing myself against Iris as she frowns, since I got her shirt all soaking wet 'To her""You're going to need to relieve some of that energy soon mali, your eyes are starting to turn wild again" She says softly stepping away from me with a frown, before smiling again "And they're filled with hearts""Well if you're so worried I can always show you what I THINK, they're going to do to her, ehehehe" I Say grinning widely, laughing pervetedly as I clap all four of my hands together "If you want""...later" She says blushing as she turns away "I just want to practice my shape shifting, make sure I got it down since....well I don't want to mess with magic that changes my body...as for all I know I could mess it some how""Oh I doubt that, you're a smart girl" I say running my hand through her hair as I turn around, making sure to shake my rump to tease her "Well, I'm free now, so what exactly do you need help with"I bend back wards, looking at her face upside down. She winces and rubs her back"Alright, I guess I should tell you what I need help with sweetie" She says, frowning as I sit back up, seeing her stare at her feet and the frosting floors "How does the magic ....no what do I need to do, to not just mangle myself""Oh" I say happily as I clap my hands together "its simple really""...Kind of disappointed to be honest" She says flatly as I step away from her "So continue you please""Well" I say nodding as I run my hands down my sides and smirk "Alright, first coat yourself in shapeshifting magic LIKE SO!"-18+18=36= grand success!-Paint of all patterns and colors flow on the air around me and Iris watches it, smiling like she's observing fine art, as ti dips and covers my body entirelyWhat do I change into IRIS, to mess with the real deal Blondie, to cause mischief Lil me!

I gasp, wincing as I feel my body, and curves get compressed, my bones forced down and shrunk as all of me becomes a little smaller as the constantly changing patterns of paints flow and drip of my fingers. The magic fades from me as Iris leans closer to me, now the same height as me, reaching out curiously before she pulls her hand back and presses one of her clawed, furred fingers to her lips with a fascinated look in her ruby red eyes. Sheets of paint flow up to my upper arms, as I fold my lower arms into my self.Stepping forward, I sway my step as my spine extends and turns into a tail, and my legs turn...odd. Having scales feels a lot weirder than touching them, and so does having fur, it makes my hands stuff."Oh? You're copying me?" Iris asks, as the pain melts into my skin. I smirk, looking back at her as she blushes and hold my winged arms out, making her turn away as she gets a look of..."Oh right" I chuckle meekly as I pull my revealing clothes back up the best I can "Forgot I'm not the same size as I usually am""W..well it seems rather precise sweety, guess you've had enough time to learn the subject" Iris says, trying not to let on how flustered she is, its really adorable "Well, I do have a lot of time to study" I say leaning over her back as she bites her lip and closes her eyes "Its falling again mali" She says dully under her breath as I lay on her back"Sorry" I say leaning away from her "But you're so cute when you're all embarressed like this, honey""I know, you like seeing me like this, but you being...me is a bit too much" She says walking a bit towards our "room" "So...I just have to think on it right?"I nod and she nods curtly, grabbing her glasses and rubbing the steam off of them as she glances back at me and tilts her head"Do I really have a freckle there?" She asks walking up to me slowly, catiously "I mean...I don't get to see myself...at all, since I don't have a reflection...is this what I really look like?"She reaches out and touches my face, running her fingers over it and squeezing."Iris?" I ask sheepishly as turns away and covers her mouth"Sorry, couldn't help myself" She says calmly as she keeps her back to me "Just got a bit to curious"What do I do? So, Iris? how long until your mother gets here? show her how to make her body like mine 1d20+guile Offer to be her mirror mess with the five girls like thisPretend to be iris, to annoy herSee if my daughters recognize me go to hell for a spell "You know...this is a fantasy for some people" Call Iris a narcissistic, teasingly Ask her if I can take my girls out for some fun Check on Kelly Tease Iris, revealing that yes, I know more about her body than she does, Burst out of my Iris disguise and moan in relief...its cramped in there write in"

>>1100505Excellent, now to confuse everyone forever with magic. As it was always intended.
>>1100513Yes, and the best part is since Iris could accidentally petrify people, they wouldn't be looking us in the eye, which we sometimes mess up.
"Wait" I say holding up my...God how does she stand having her wings under her arms? its just...its a little restricting, well it feels like it should be restrictive at least, but I can move her arms as easily as I can mine its just...different "You can't see yourself in a mirror right, so how do you always keep your hair straight?""OH" She says as a few of the maids turn, looking a little curious themselves "Well Karla and dad used to do it for me, but I just memorized how to brush it to keep it nice and orderly""Awww" A maid sighs, turning away as I tilt my head, frowning as she pushes her glasses up"You don't believe me?" She asks as I shake my head and struggle to get my arms around myself comfortably, like she's doing with hers, wearing her wings like a cloak "then why do you look so confused?"Lacy stares us in confusion, stammering for a second before she sighs and walks away"Just...how?" I say shrugging "I mean that's pretty damn impressive it's just""Obessive?" She asks dully with the smallest smile "Yes I suppose it is, but I like my hair like that....and I can see I pull it off well""Yeah, yeah, but its just seems a little too troublesome" I say frowning as she nods, and just stares at me, looking curious about herself"It really is" She says sadly, my heart aches and I grip my...er her chest with a clawed hand and grin "But that's why I've been practicing, I have a very good memory, but you know that don't...""Hey, I can be your mirror can't I?" I say interrupting her, trying to grab her hands with mine but the wingy things make it a little awkwardShe pauses, and just smiles, laughing cheerfully and warming up my heart as I look her in the eyes"Yes" She says grabbing my hands and nodding "Yes you could mali"Without a word she hugs me, and I do theShe sighs as I struggle with the weird wing thingys under her arms"it must be hard switching from a body like yours to one like this" She sighs as she justs hugs meand gives me a wonderful idea. I grin widely as just the start of it, imaging all the fun we can have together with this magic and...cool it down mali...don't think about that...yet, this is teaching time right...but it does seem nice...very nice"Mali....heart eyes" Iris says as I shake those...exctingly naughty thoughts out of my head, well most of them"Hey, Iris, I think you should try my body on for size" I say grinning widely as she stares at me, adjusts her glasses"I really don't want to feel how hard it is to carry around all that extra weight" She says flatly.I pout and puff my lips out"Pleaaaase?" I say sadly as she closes her eyes, and sighscont
>>1100625She runs her hair along the side of my head, messing up her hair...looks like she's having fun with it"Well, I could try, but I don't know how it....work' She says flapping her wings for a second or two "Since it does have several imposibilities and""I can show you" I say happily as I lean closer to her "We can spend a day as eachother!""....of course" She says after a moment's pause, pushing her glasses up her nose "But I would say that long""For awhile" I say shrugging "At least...just do it for me""I said I'd try" She says frowning "against my better judgement, So...lead me through the steps?"-18+4= 22= success -"Well first, you need to grow and expand your bones to fit my frame, and then you need to grow the west of it with it...and create entirely new arms and hands which will be tricky" I say nodding slowly "Don't think you can be as I bendy as I can, but you can defiantly get the horns and wings with bit of trying!, just remember, I'm well rounded and...if you can figure out how to make my...er your skin change color, tell me!"She just nods an steps back, clapping her wings together, thin streams of bright pink paint flowing out of her hands- roll 1d20+will *for when she's done transforming*

She closes her eyes to focus, the paint expanding and spreading itself thin, but growing thick as it flows out of her hands, growing into two massive puddles forming over her shoulders. They kind of look like hands trying to scoop her up, or antlers of some great Moose. It rolls and boils in front of my eyes, as I try to keep my winged arms wrapped around myself, so I don't accidentally "Show off" in Iris' body. The paint flows behind her, encasing her like an egg and hider her from view. But I can see her shadow, her hips blossoming outward, and growing fatter as her rump turns as succulent as mine, her tail vanishing as her upper arms change and lose the winged bits, and lower ones emerge from the stomach of the silhouette. Her long hair shrinks back up, and two horns sprout from her forehead.She yelps in pain, as my wings rip out of her back, and she bends backwards, only for her chest to slowly ripple outward, sending her tumbling forward. She catches herself easily with the extra hands, and pants, looking exhausted and as deliciously plump and filled out as I always am...beautifully so..can't wait to see myself for my own eyes.A long pointed tongue droops out of her mouth and the paint clears away into nothing, brush by brush. I can see her now, her skin is milky white and kind of almost see through. And her eyes have to giant question marks in the place of her pupils andAnd...Oh. I swallow, and cover my mouth as my heart thumps in my chest, and I realize just how hot I am and how much I want to just lay down on my own stomach and-20+5= 25+ crit-I feel drool covering the underside of my fingers, and force the thoughts down before I do anything dumb and egotistical...even if I really want to enjoy my body from an outside perspective once"How" iris asks, her voice sounding like mine, buttery and smooth "Hoooow, do you move like this"She tries to stand, her wings flapping as she tries to stand, wobbling as I watch her and my body jiggle tantalizing "There's too much weight!" She yells managing to sit down with a thud "How do you even get lift...is it always this hard for you to walk? I'm sorry Mali" She pants, fanning herself, looking like she's cooking up with the extra "Padding""This must be hell, if its always like this" She says trying to brush hair out of her eyes...but my hair isn't as long as hers, so she just wipes her foreheadWhat do I do? point out her shit got a bit...destroyed Say you get used to it Wow...I should start wearing glasses...how do you use your arms with these I'm so sexy....

Alright, writing, sorry for the delay
"HEY!" I shout angrily as she slumps against the wall, confused maids watching us from across the bath as I make motions with my single set of arms, trying to trace my usual figure in the air "All that is is Extra curves, and fat tis and ass, Don't act like you're covered in stones, Iris!""But its all just so heavy, it throwing off my balance" She says angrily, poking my hips with an angry pout "it certainly doesn't give me as much trouble as I used to have with walking but still...its just so tiresome"She slumps forward, her shirt's buttons straining to keep her newly thickened form inside of it as she sits on the ground"Well you get used to it, but you don't have to stay like that for long anyways" I say as I walk closer to her, and can't help but stare at all the colors on her skin...wow, I didn't know they looked this bright before, guess I'm just used to seeing stuff like this all the time...and Its really different seeing my body from another point of view."And I am glad for that" She sighs in relief, closing her eyes and leaning back against the wall, rubbing her neck "My shoulders are killing meQuite the view indeed"Yeah, maybe my body only works for demons" I say sheepishly as she shakes her head"I think I could handle it...if I had enough blood" She sighs as she stays sitting there and looks up at me "...but I think I get why you like showing off so much, besides your instincts""Yeah, I'm so sexy" I say leaning closer as she smirks and giggles"Well I knew that" She says bluntly as she notices me staring and frowns slightly "Mali?""Mistress? Can I use you as a pillow?" I ask innocently as she continues laying there "Why?" She asks, sounding a little suspicious.I turn and scratch the back of my beck"I wanna...I wanna check something" I say grinning widely...her fangs feel strange, like they shouldn't fit in her mouthShe thinks on it for a few seconds and smiles"Aw what the hell" She says, opening her arms and legs up "its your body anyways, I can't keep you from it"What do I do? just sit in her lap, and summon snacks lay on her and fall asleep Chat, while laying against herInspect herUse this time to get perspective in how much I've changed Ask Iris what we're going to do if her mom is mad change back to normal ontop of her, make sure maya isn't causing trouble check on Kelly...after a quick nap write inAlso sorry I'm going slow, but I didn't sleep at all

My body burns, the warmth of desire flushing down from my spine and resting between my legs, in my heart and in my head as I stare at my own body, wearing a pair of glasses, and a pair of practically bursting jeans and a baby blue shirt."What? Scared?" Iris asks teasingly as she taps her lap smirking as I bite down on my tongue, my sharpened teeth ripping into it...thankfully even if I've changed my body, its still a demon's body, so I don't have to worry about having a mangled tonguethe pain clears my head enough for me to get a foot hold and push back against my wants and calm down."No, just trying to figure out where I wanna sit" I say as I plop myself down on her legs and lean backwards into her chest with a sigh.She hugs me and pushes my head a bit harder against it."Comfortable, Mali?" She asks looking concerned as she looks down at me"Of course" I say happily "I wouldn't want to sit here if I didn't think it was comfy, I mean you seem to like it""You also tend to force me to enjoy it" She says dully as I cackle, staring at my...her hands, frowning a bit"Well you seem to enjoy it" I say grabbing her arm....remembering when It wasn't so brightly colored, when I had a slight tan from working under the sun, and so did this body.When I was shorter than Iris, when I was just a skinny little farm girl. Couldn't fly through the air with wings large enough to cover a small crowd in shadow, or horns on my head polished to a shine. Or my weird eyes that never seem to choose how they want to look.I don't look much like myself at all, my hands are...nicer, delicate, they don't have little faint scars on them from nicking them with scythes or other sharp blades. My face is clean, and...well it looks so much more matured than I ever looked. My hair is brighter, and has more sheen, but is still the length I had it when I died.

"Hey, Iris" I say, my voice shaking, making her hug me tighter "what are we going to do if your mom is mad""Well" She says pausing, thinking on her answer a bit, as she turns paler than usual "Well, she won't hurt us, and the worst she can do is ground both of us for a few decades, which isn't that big of a set back....right?"Iris frowns, the paint melting off of her as her body shrinks down back to her regular self and she rests her head on my shoulder"right?"

"Yeah" I say nodding, as I lay back into her and grin, before I remember how much her fangs embarrass her, and just smile "Not like anyone could kill one of you millers anyways""That's what I'm resting my hopes on" She says softly she squeezes me again "besides being grounded won't matter to me, because I do have you don't I? at the very least""yeah, with me there it'd be like a vacation" I cackle as she smirks and nods"Without any sleep" She says, blushing slightly as I nod"Neither of us need any, and I'm not that hungry" I say, pouting dramatically as she snickers"I know, but I was just trying to tease you a bit" She says nudging my side, making me giggle "Guess I don't have a good sense of humor when I'm nervous""No one does, but...hey if it'll calm you down you can drink my blood" I say sweetly, as she scrunches up her face"Only if you turn back to yourself first" She says dully"Of course, but hey, another way to stop worrying is just to go out and just" I say pausing to try and figure out how to word what I'm about to say "fix this mess between your Marla and Layla""If we can" She says softly "But I think the two of us can figure something out, we're a great team aren't we?""I mean I was kind of made for you in a way" I say smiling widely "hey, would confusing the servants and blondie by shapeshifting into eachother again cheer you up""Hmmmm"She says, rubbing her chin as she stares at my neckWhat do I do?

"I'd really rather mess with blondie and the help" I say meekly as she smirks and chuckles"I mean, most of the maids have already seen us as each other sweetie" She says happily, brushing her long hair out of my eyes as I lay against her "So we could only really fool the ones doing actual work or the ones who took blondie away""Well that was who I was talking about" I say, sneering as she smirks "You know, just mess around with them for a bit, nothing really serious at first""Well, that is assuming of course they're not...indisposed right now, like you guessed earlier" She says calmly as I sigh"Yeah, the one time blondie giving into her desires would bite me in the ass" I groan as I slump against my girlfriend' wiggling the copy of her ears ontop of my head right now "I mean we could still mess with her""I don't want to walk in on the poor girl being ravaged Mali" Iris says bluntly, I huff and grip her shirt"Well I mean, I was planning on playing with the girls for a while but...I really want to abuse my magic" I say trying to smile innocently as Iris raises an eyebrow"More than usual?'

"Pleeease?" I ask pressing my head against hers as she frowns, and sighs, smiling as she ruffles my hair and slowly stands up.Paint flows up her legs and begin to cover her as she walks out of the room, as I follow after her, giggling manically as she pushes her glasses up, and takes them off by pinching them at the bridge. calmly folding them up she stuffs them into one of her shirt's pockets. Pushing open the massive golden brown doors of fresh baked cookies, we walk into the cinimon coated hallways. One of the bandits the serves Elizabeth glare at me, his new look obviously not to his tastes...even though his suit is such a wonderful shade of green and his hair is nice and wild.He and one of the nagas close the door behind us, before they go back to sitting together, barely paying attention to me and Iris as we march down the hallways, falling the faint foot prints in the frosting path.What do I do? remind Iris that Blondie will be suspicious if I'm wearing that much clothing Make a plan with iris to mess with her Go first, and chat with blondie nicely for nce <Switch to Iris and try and act like Mali> get one of the maids to help figure out if blondie is "Busy" or not write in

>>1102041I don't speak for everyone, but if you aren't feeling 100% maybe you shouldn't force yourself?Could wrap this thread up and do some Q&A or something, because, personally, I'd rather you were writing at your best.And speaking of Q&A, what exactly is the plan right now in the story? Are we just going off to find Marla? Because if so, I feel like we might have done things out of order. First step might have been trying to talk Layla around to even entertaining the possibility of having Marla around. If we bring her back now, she might just kill her.We had a revelation in the fact that Layla killed Marla's main squeeze and took his soul. We still don't know if Layla even understands why Marla went crazy and attacked her.And even if we do find Marla, what do we even do then?
>>1102102also... we're still standing up that one demon in the sea of lost memories... wonder if we're ever gonna get that dealt with.
>>1102136Well, demons deal with time differently than mortals. So do vampires and werewolves for that matter.Maybe the impatient approach we have with getting the family back together isn't the surest way to go about it . . . We have forever, why not use it? Take a more gradual approach to some problems.Just a thought.On a lighter note: here is something that reminds me of Mali and Iris.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrhXkwPyR10I could totally see them like this someday, maybe Mali is being her usual mischievous self and trying to be sly about and Iris just wants to read and isn't in the mood.
>>1102102Honestly, Iris probably considered talking to Layla for about 1 second before the thought of what would happen scared the shit out of her. Layla is stubborn as hell and a little irrational when it comes to people who've hurt her family, and that's what she thinks Marla is right now. Not to mention the fact that knowing she may have killed her niece/nephew before he/she was even born would destroy her (even though I highly doubt they're dead). Getting Marla to just come home is by no means the best plan, but it's probably the safest for Marla's existence and Layla's remaining sanity that we get her to come of her own free will, and keep Layla in the dark about things for now. That's my take on it anyway.>>1102136Jeez, we really do need to get on that soon, a pissed off Zodd won't do us any good.
>>1102136I was hoping we would have dealt with that and looked into why that soul is trapped in hell first. Honestly, I would have thought at least Iris would have tried vising hell to see how she was before just taking off to look for Marla.
"Hey Iris, you know, I couldn't wear that much clothing without nearly scratching myself bloody, right?" I ask sweetly, trying to sound as innocently as I can as I stand up on my toes to whisper into her ear "Blondie has never seen me wear more, and she'd certainly be a bit suspicious that I'm wearing a bunch of clothes a few sizes too small"Iris stops and glances back at me, with a deadly and vulnerable glare, her eyes wide open as she clenches her first no doubt ready to show how much she hates what I just said with a quick "SIT""Oh come on" I say quietly as I smile sweetly "No reason to be embarrassed, its just my body, you've seen it in less, I know its a little weird Iris, but come on, its just a bit of fun"Her face turns as red as her eyes, as her wings flap, like she's tapping her fingers on her cheeks think."Fine" She says, almost squeaking as she quickly takes back her usual flat monotone voice "I'll do it, but don't tell a soul Mali or....Or I'll do something, I don't know what, but I will do it""Hey I won't tell a show" I Say grabbing her shirt and tugging it "come on, lets switch clothes really quickly and""Ah...yo..you were still wearing that bikini this whole time?" She stutters, as she realizes that we just walked past two guards with me in it "Ah...ah"AH, ooops sorry iris it kind of just skipped my mind" I say quickly as her eyes dull for a moment."Nothing but cuddling for a month" She grumbles looking quite upset that I was still wearing my slutty attire"Sorry" I say again as I block off the hall ways with a few walls of crystals to give us privacy while we change"its fine...just" She sighs shaking her head "you can't help it, anything more would've burned you"I nod and she ruffles my hair"Still, its nice being taller than you for a change"She moves her hand likes she's adjusting her glasses, and looks down at herself, turning bright...bright...bright red all over"Uuuuuh" She whines as I clap my hands together and grin "Soooo cuuute" I say giggling as she pouts "What?" I chuckle as she turns away, trying to cover herself with her wings-Iriscont>>1102102Oh the plan involves somethings from ASQ, but I don't like spoiling stuff.>>1102136I've been giving you guys chances>>1102164Also cute videoBut Caught up actually has a pretty good insight her>>1102210>>1102228Well, she can go there whenever she can, with mali. But mali hasn't been opening doors to hell.
>>1102210But going to get Marla first doesn't solve the problem you mentioned: it makes it worse because how do you think Layla is going to respond to "Surprise! Here is your traitorous sister!"Maybe Iris should have talked to her "father" for help about how to deal with Layla, because getting Layla to change her mind about Marla really does seem like step one. Yea, Layla might go ballistic, but Maria might be able to calm her down or help everyone get through it alive at least. Currently we are going behind her back with a dubious plan or no plan at all really.Again, what good does getting Marla to come back do if she is going to get killed as soon as she gets there? This is assuming that Marla will even listen to us. As far as she is concerned, Layla is still the same dangerous monster with no remorse for the terrible things she has done.I feel like the most important thing to do is to try to salvage/cultivate what little remains of the more compassionate side of Layla in order to change Marla's mind. Maria would be instrumental in that.Just a reminder: Layla killed dozens of people before she was even old enough to drive. Not only did she kill them, she gave them paralytics and let them burn alive when she burned down her school. She did all that with no real motive. She is morbidly touched in the head. Sad really, when you think about it.There has always been something deeply wrong with her mind, the only thing that has kept her slightly human has been Maria and her sisters which she is somehow able to care for. Worth remembering.
>>1102281>"Surprise! Here is your traitorous sister!"There isn't really anything Layla feels betrayed over. She is angry about Marla leaving her more than anything else.
>>1102309Well, in hindsight that statement was mildly stupid because she feels betrayed over Marla leaving, but its unlikely she would prioritise keeping a grudge over having Marla be back. Ultimately the far bigger issue is to make Marla forgive Layla, not the other way around.
>>1102309No, she is angry that Marla attacked her. As far as what Layla seems to know: Marla attacked her own little sister (over Layla's outrageous retribution for someone chucking a rock at her immortal spouse.)She probably feels hurt and betrayed and only just barely let Marla live and flee because she was family.
>>1102235I feel cold. I don't like this. I'm okay with showing this much when its just me and Mali, but this is just too much. Its not even that revealing, its just that mali's body has out grown it to the point it feels like it barely covers anything. and it might just be me, but it feels...really...really tight down there. Not to mention it feels like wet seaweed somehow...so I'm constantly feeling it as least slightly. Lust demon sense have to be different than mortal's, because I could not see Mali wear this any other way. It feels like I'm being touched and groped everywhere its touching. Not to mention the panties have a cupcake on them....I've noticed it before plenty of times, but it just feels so much more...demeaning when I"m wearing it.I glance around to make sure no one is looking at me, my skin flashing purple, pink and red with waves. Which means I'm embarrassed if I've guessed Mali's colors right. I'm standing outside the door of chocolate that I was told the two maids put Blondie in...I don't hear any...noises that would get mali into a frenzy. So it has to be safe, besides me wearing...this. I try to cover my lower half with the second set of arms, but they're....how does mali control these things. Must be practice. I remember, she had trouble with them having minds of their own before.I take a deep breath, and unwrap my wings, feeling naked as I open the door and walk in, trying to smile Mali's playful and slightly smug, devious smile."And what do you want?" the girl called blondie asks venemously as I walk into the room, trying to keep up the act the best I can.She has a slight tan, and is dressed like a beach bum, fumbling with a beast tooth necklace."Well are you just going to stare at me now?" She asks, glaring at me from the bed in the corner of the roomWhat do I do? try to act as teasing and play ful as mali go full sadism1d20+will Try and be nice, and ask her what she needs Flaunt my body and try tomake her flustered 1d20+will Imply the things "I" am planning for her just act like one of those villains from the show's dad likes Ask if she wants any cookies?

>>1102370>No, she is angry that Marla attacked her.I heavily doubt that. Layla doesn't care much about that sort of thing. marla leaving her definitly hurt her way more than Marla ttacking her, which at most confused her, and maybe made her angry at the moment, but isn't cause for a grudge to Layla.Layla doesn't associate physical attacks as something particularly worth worrying about, just think of all the times she and Thomas attacked eachother, or when she incinerated marla, or how she syringe drugged Maria in the same evening they confessed their love.

>>1102397> write inask if she want's any "Upgrades"
>>1102281I agree with you, talking to Layla first would probably have been the best first step in this plan. But Iris isn't going with the best plan right now. She knows that her mom is terrifying and will ground her for 50 years if what she's trying to do get's out, and she doesn't want to have to deal with that. Iris is currently fighting with both her fear of hurting her mom, and her desire to reconnect with a part of her family that she's never known (which will heal all of her family, especially Layla, in the long run). I think it came down to a choice for her: sit at home where she could think over all of the terrible possibilities of what she could and should do, paralyzed by indecision, or just fucking go for, and figure everything out as it happens. This is more of an instinctual plan than a logical one, and it's by no means the best one overall, but I think it was the best one available to Iris at the time, at least by her thinking. Think about it like this: if you go skydiving, but you're terrified of heights, you can sit on the ground and think about all of the horrible things that can go wrong, or run into the plane and force yourself off without thinking, and then you're fucking flying man. Or something like that at least. That's how I see the situation anyway.>>1102309Marla also defended some of the rioters who indirectly hurt Maria (her boyfriend/husband) and that's why Layla more or less took her off of the family tree.

>>1102427>Marla also defended some of the riotersAs I understood it Marla intervened later during the rampage, I doubt she was fast enough to prevent the brutal murder of everyone in the general vicinity of that event.

>>1102456My general point was that I doubt Layla still considered all the later "victims" i.e. the ones Marla defended as actually being guilty of anything. It was more a issue of this whole episode rousing her from her general "contentment." Layla doesn't 'need' a reason to murder people. She 'wants' to murder people and only being generally content with Maria and Maria disapproving if she would slaughtert people in masses is the only reason she isn't doing it anymore all the time.She didn't slaughter these people out of a sense of vengeance anymore, she slaughtered them because they gave a her a moment in which she forgot about Marias disapproval and indulged in something she genuinly enjoys doing.
>>1102474Adding.>ask if she want's any "Upgrades"
>>1102481While I agree with all of that, I think she enjoy's Maria and everything about being with Maria even more than slaughter, if only by a bit. For the simple fact that murder and killing doesn't make her dead heart beat, while being with Maria (the special moments anyway) do. I don't know, maybe I like their relationship too much for my own good, but that's the way it looks to me.
>>1102523>I think she enjoy's Maria and everything about being with Maria even more than slaughterWell yeah, thats what I said. I'm not sure what you're objecting to here.Its been true since that fateful halloween that Laylas two favorite things in the world are Maria and Murder in that order.
>>1102541Sorry, I just thought that you meant that the only reason Layla doesn't just go out every now and then to tear apart a neighborhood is that Maria would be mad, not that her time with Maria is more important to her. My mistake.
>>1102568I added her contentment of being 'with' Maria to avoid that impression, I probably wasn't clear enough. But no, what I mean is that being with maria makes Layla happy enough that its stronger than the "itch" of going out and killing people most of the time. Additionally Maria disapproving is also a factor.
15+9=24= success-I smile softly, folding my upper arms under Mali's wonderful rack, pushing it out as I put the lower hands on my hips. They pull Mali's panties askew a bit as I walk up posing slightly in a way to show off as much of my body as I can. A stance I've seen Mali go into with out realizing it, bending slightly forward to show off her bosom and pushing her ass out for everyone to see. Blondie blushes and my hear twitches, my colors turning deeper shades as I force my smile to remain just that."Look, I'm not interested alright, also don't you have the princess already?" she asks frowning as I chuckle"Oh sorry force of habit" I say sweetly as I hope over to her bedside and she leans back "Just wanted to come check in on you, make sure you weren't being naughty""Says queen turn my friends into a bunch of perverts" Blondie grumbles as I bite my tongue...ah that would explain why she hates Mali so much...should've asked how she picked up the girls back in that town but...it never crossed my mind back then. And that is what mali does and...She's staring at me, I don't like it, its not even Mali's hungry obvious stare, or Alith's watching glance, Or Maya's snearking peek. She's just looking at me, trying to pretend she isn't. And somehow its worse than being around Mali when her libedo and lust cloud her mind. Its make me feel like I'm wearing even less.I stop myself from covering up, even as I begin to feel cold and just keep smiling"Puuuuhleaaaase" I say, like Mali sometime says to be mocking "I can't just create perversion, lust is different, but if they're perverts its their own fault, maybe you need to be less of a prude?""right feeding them ice cream that makes them act like cats in heat is EEEEEH!" She yelps as I lean closer to her and chuckle "I just like giving people sweets, is that so wrong" I say, pouting and lowering my head like Mali does...its good I know most of her mannerism from just watch her day by day "and you just happen to be the sweet they want""F..fuck off" She says pushing my finger away from her chest "its your fault they're like this""Oh please, they were just waiting to eat you up, I know I would" I say, cringing inside as Blondie turns red, her fist shaking as I chuckle "So do you need anything""for you to go away, get me something that isn't sweet and turn my friends back to normal?"She says "But knowing you, the best I can hope for is, don't touch me""Oh that's your friend's job" I say cheekily as she huffs and turns away from me "So you sure you don't want something, I could make you some food or""Already....horny enough, I'm here so I can calm down" She grumbles angrily "And to hide from Mary and Marcy, and you're making it very hard to both with your...lewd body, seriously what the hell, why are you so GRAH""Oh jealous" I say, suddenly pushing my chest towards her, my hear beating once as she leans forward and then shoots back cursing at me cont
>>1102402Well, except for the people whom she violently and brutally killed when they attacked her. In those instances it seemed to matter. I think the context plays a huge part of it. And the event in question was caused by someone tossing a rock at Maria. I think it is fair to say that mattered. Maria clearly is one case where it is not tolerated at all.But ultimately you are right. It wasn't the fact that Marla attacked her in and of itself that upset Layla. It was what it represented. Saying something is not okay is one thing, but attacking someone because of how strongly you feel sends the message a bit louder.Marla had been critical of Layla's tendencies before, but in this case she appeared to be so incensed over Layla, who was in her mind just protecting someone dear to her, killing a bunch of nobodies that she would turn on her own flesh and blood. Also: recall that, at the time, there was a pseudo-rebellion going on. People wanted to depose Layla, some of them wanted it violently. In reality, Marla was probably just distraught and hurting over losing who SHE cared about, and not in the best state of mind to communicate her grievances. That lack of clear motive might have led Layla to assume the Marla was siding with the rebellion and that she was turning on her. That would have been further exacerbated by the fact that Marla's love was at least somewhat involved with the rebel faction.I am just extrapolating on what I have picked up so far, but as near as I can tell: Layla felt betrayed that Marla disapproved of her and her actions (which, again, in Layla's mind was just her acting out her very strong feelings of protective love for Maria) to the point of attacking her over it.In other words, to Layla it appeared that Marla was openly hostile about Layla's inhumanly obsessive love of Maria. Her act of attacking Layla was, in some ways, like Marla was saying that it was wrong for her to love Maria to such an extent.In Layla's mind, Marla was challenging her for loving Maria too much, and siding with discontented rebels over her own sister. And she was set in her feelings strongly enough that she attacked Layla over it.Just my best guess theory, anyway.
>>1102649"I could always give you some upgrades~""FUCK OFF!"Blondie roars "I don't want any more of your..your bimbo magic!"I think I've got the smooth as butter and sweet as honey tone mali has. I manage to keep smiling as my heart beats again and my legs shake from embaressment. Why do I have to be a good actor, she probably saw everything in my bra just now....but its just mali body...not mine, even though knowing everyone sees mali like that kind of pisses me off a little"Wait" She says pausing for a moment as I cover myself up, breaking my "character" as my wings fall over my body "Why are you..."And blondie seems a little rude...hmm"Well, I'll go tell Mali that then" i say calmly as I turn, watching the girl turn as pale as i usually am"W...wait you..you were" she says as I turn back and grin, like mali"Am I?" I ask as her eyes go wide as I laugh "What? cute, adorable, sexy? Beautifuly and bountiful"She stares at me as I laugh and let my real eye color seep through my fake body for a momentI hear her shriek as she realizes who's she's been bad mouthing, and through the door hear cried apologizes and please for mercy. >>1102650Pretty damn close actuallyAnd we'll end hereI've archivedand will answer questions
>>1102650>Well, except for the people whom she violently and brutally killed when they attacked her.Again, Layla doesn't need a reason to brutally and violently kill people. You are making the mistake of assuming them attacking her was 'why' she killed them. it wasn't. She kille dthem because she likes killing. They were just convenient targets of the situation.Again I remind you of all the casual physical violence between her and her "friends" like Thomas. its simply untrue to believe Layla puts much stock into being physically attacked or takes it very serious, she doesn't.>>1102650>Marla had been critical of Layla's tendencies beforeYou're confusing her with Jasmine. Marla has never been critical of it.>>1102650>That lack of clear motive might have led Layla to assume the Marla was siding with the rebellionThats implying Layla has emotional attachment being Countess. Thats, not really true. Its something she considers amusing at most.>>1102650>In other words, to Layla it appeared that Marla was openly hostile about Layla's inhumanly obsessive love of Maria. Her act of attacking Layla was, in some ways, like Marla was saying that it was wrong for her to love Maria to such an extent.I think you're extrapolating WAY too hard here with no real basis to fund such claims when the obvious reason is much more likely and more well founded in laylas personality. Marla attacked layla and interrupted her during doing what she enjoyed, Layla was annoyed and they fought. I'm sure heated words were exchanged and Layla felt insulted/hurt by her sister in that moment (by the words, not the attack) and then marla 'left'. And 'that' is what really hurt Layla because losing her family (especially Maria, but also to some extent her sisters) is the only thing she is terrified of.
>>1102427Well, I will credit that I wasn't taking into account Iris making an arguably poor decision based on her own concerns. She is a pretty sharp girl, though, so I would have thought she'd have thought this through a bit more.>>1102481While I can't cite anything specific to call you out as wrong, I suspect you might be underestimating how much Layla wanting express her outrage over someone attacking Maria factored into her actions. Layla wasn't killing up close and personal for fun, she was wielding her full power with abandon and descended on her people like a vengeful deity. She wreaked havoc with great force and speed. She was mad, not focused on enjoying herself.Also, wtf was Maria doing when Layla was going on a rampage? Did she care? Did she try to stop Layla? Obviously the people who were in the immediate area at the time had no chance, but didn't Layla continue her rampage for quite a few minutes?Was Layla just THAT pissed off that not even Maria was able to get through to her? Did Maria not even try to stop her for some reason?
>>1102716Thanks for running.Really, I can't imagine Layla keeps a grudge about having been attacked by Marla. What she has a grudge over is Marla leaving her behind and whatever she might have thrown into laylas face during their fight verbally. What do you think HM?
>>1102716Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. Good talks towards the end there. And seriously, if you aren't feeling up to running tomorrow, you can postpone it. None one here will mind, and I think we'd all be happier if you were in your top form (I mean you too when I say "we" BTW).
>>1102716Thanks for running HM. Guess we'll make up some ground next week. Hope you feel better. Get some sleep!Lifa for earth magic upgrades so she can act like a shark in the mud and sneak attack enemies/her sisters.>Dun dun dun dun dun dun>Brown blob pops out>It smiles like her mother>Mud turns to devistating earth spikes>Or in a more playful mood. TACKLE HUG GALINA AND ALITH!Seriously though, get some rest and I will see you next week for level uping or trips to hell!
>>1102745>I suspect you might be underestimating how much Layla wanting express her outrage over someone attacking Maria factored into her actionsNo on eis underestimating that, but her outrage had been expressed in that first moment of violent reprisal against everyone in the general vicinity of the event. All the stuff afterwards wasn't about that anymore.Hence why she stopped after Marla left. Otherwsie she would have just continued slaughtering them.>>1102745>she was wielding her full power with abandon and descended on her people like a vengeful deity. She wreaked havoc with great force and speed. She was mad, not focused on enjoying herself.I might remind you how much of a kick Layla got out of exploding that town. She doesn't 'need' to be close and personal to enjoy the kill, even if she does like being close and personal.
>>1102719This guy is also right. Layla doesn't need a reason to kill. She just likes doing it. Even if she's calmed down and "matured" these last hundred so yearsShe also does hold great love for her family.So its a mix of the two in a way. she was furious that Maria got hurt, but some part of her screamed "EXCUSE">>1102754I'd say its fairly close. >>1102773YepAlso yeah, Layla does like watch people's life fade from their eyes, but Fraust likes her for a reason. Like how she kills someone doesn't matter to her, but she does have preferred methods>>1102757Adorable ideas anons
>>1102756I didn't see this one, but yeah, if you're not feeling well, good rest ensures you don't drag it out.No one would blame you.
>>1102716Poor Blondie, ending up as Mali's chew toy. Get some rest for tomorrow, if possible.Is Layla still at the castle? I though she would have showed up at the end and take fake Iris, but I'm guessing she's just upset for a different reason that won't involve her coming over.
>>1102884>>1102756I'll see how I feel when I wake up in the morning. I just hope I don't sleep past the usual start timeAs I have never done that once. and I'd hate to do it now>>1102897Mariaremember, Layla is pregnantMaria has her "Web" abilityShe basically locked Layla in their room with it to keep her from going out.Doesn't stop her familiars or children from going out. But it does keep Layla from recking your castleSo hey, some old friends are coming back soon!
>>1102932Did you ever say what the MC of Data had that made her so hospitalized?
>>1102932>So hey, some old friends are coming back soon!Never before has that sentence been so awesome and so terrifying at the same time! Would one of these old friends be a certain lich, with certain... tastes in heavy ordnance?
>>1102959Its left ambiguous. But in general she had a very weak immune system and constitution, she just had a lot wrong with her in general though>>1102969I know when Fraust is coming backthen all may here the gospel of EXPLOSSSSSSSSIONS
>>1102969God I hope you are right!
>>1102719You're absolutely right: she doesn't need a reason. All she needs is an excuse.I get that she is different, that she lacks normal human compunction against killing people and even enjoys it somewhat, but she isn't stupid.By that I mean, it is generally in her best interest (for a number of reasons) to NOT be killing everyone she meets. Layla recognizes this and is willing to "play along" most of the time and not kill people all over the place. Heaven help you if you give her an excuse to suspend that restraint, however.For normal people, they generally don't kill someone unless they have a really strong reason/desire to do so. Layla is almost opposite in that she needs reasons NOT to kill. You might as well consider her to be constantly on the lookout for excuses to sate her killing craving. Excuses that would suspend or mitigate the logical reasons she has for not killing: like attacking her or her loved ones. But that still doesn't change the fact that plenty of reasons, some of which she even cares about, exist to not kill people.Now, if you attack Layla with deadly force, you probably just volunteered for stress relief duties. At that point if she doesn't have a good reason to keep you around (like with the people you mention that she has violent encounters with that don't result in death) you are going to shortly discover how dead it is possible for you to be.>You're confusing her with Jasmine. Marla has never been critical of it.I don't think so. I would ask that you look again. I can't dig up a reference right this instant because I have to go, but I assure you Marla has voiced her concern about how far Layla takes things on at least a couple occasions, just not as much as Jasmine.Anyhow, thanks for running HM. I will try and sneak back on here at work to continue discussing this great quest.
>>1102988>EXPLOSSSSSSSSIONSYes, YES. I love that crazy bastard.
>>1102932Whoa, Maria must be REALLY good at grounding her children.
>>1102932That explains why she didn't pop up. Also I'm very disappointed in Layla for never bothering to learn teleport, even though it's funner to watch her victims run. Can't wait to "talk" to Alive. On another note, does "Maria" spiders communicate to her in any way for her to know anything that would interest either of the Maria's?
>>1102997>>1102829For the record, I had written that wall of text before HM mentioned the excuse thing.Glad I was on the right wavelength.
>>1102805>Adorable IdeasIt gets better if Mali learns earth magic>Motherly bonding as she and Lifa pelt Galina and Alith with mud balls as "revenge">Galina and Alith fight back throwing mus balls of their own>Maya is dodging everyone, wanting no part in this>Lifa and Mali "Win">Mali beaing bullshit with magic, she turns the tables on her colaborator>Free for all>Iris walks in "What's going on in here?">Everyone in the fight looks at her>You have made a terrible mistake.jpg>A minute later when the inevitable is done>Beat>Iris gives them a miller smile>The rest of you have made a terrible mistake.jpg
>>1103024I just pictured Maria having an army of little spiders the secretly serve her and tell her stuff that happens in her domain.Wicked.
>>1103012Yeah, she isProblem is Mizuki is a neat and is the most likely one to misbehave >>1102997I have to say, this discussion brings back really good memories >>1103024I mean Layla can phase through walls, and turn into a puddle of very murderous blood>>1103024Yes she can understand themBut she can only call them as "Maria">>1103029Yes, they realize Iris, when close enough to mali, has all her magical power. And is smarter with it
>>1103040I imagine them acting like the soot sprites from my neighbor Totoro and spirited away
>>1102997I'm not entirely sure what the point of the first part is except to agree with me? Yes, Layla doesn't need a reason to kill people. That was the answer to your raised theory of Layla killing these people because she was angry.Layla didn't kill them because she was angry, she killed them because wanted to and they gave her a excuse in front of Maria for doing so.layla wasn't killing people 24/7 back in the day because despite all her emntal issues she is a extremly intelligent person, both intellectually and socially. She realises social repercussions which is why she enjoyed the Coin so much, because they gave her a way to do what she enjoys in a way that was longterm sustainable more than random rampages.Anyway, thats all besides the point of Layla not being mad at Marla because Marla "protected" anyone. She got in the way of her fun, but that isn't something Layla keeps a serious grudge over. If she really thought these people were guily of transgressing against Maria she wouldn't have stopped after Marla.>>1102997>I don't think so. I would ask that you look again. I can't dig up a reference right this instant because I have to go, but I assure you Marla has voiced her concern about how far Layla takes things on at least a couple occasionsI don't claim to have memorized verbatim every single of the multiple dozen threads worth of ASQ spread across years, so I can't claim with absolute certainty that it has literally never even once under some impression happened.But it was not a "thing" and certainly it woulod have been a very exceptional occurance if she did. I honestly can't remember a scenario in which they were somewhere together were Marla had a reason to object, and so I have to ask you to find me theis situation no, I can't even see that having happened given Marlas own bloodthirsty character.
>>1103076Still loving this discussion Also, remember, Layla did spare people on occasion, though she often gave them even crappier fates than simply dying
>>1103055>"It was just a little fun!">Mali, seconds before the mud tidal wave burys everyone.>After that Iris finally starts laughing with them>The family bath after that will be worth it
>>1103109I think of all of them only Kimberly got something remotly resembling not a fate worse than death and thats mostly because she lucked out on Layla not paying much attention to her and finding her very creepy.
>>1103068Is there any of "Maria's" spiders in our castle? Is there an invisible web that relays the ongoings of it? Does Mizuki have anything to counter them since they would probably tattle on her.
>>1103109>Still loving this discussionSomehow the specifics of Laylas and to some extent Marias mental issues has always stimulated animated discussion.I quite like it because I enjoyed thinking about it a lot back in the day.
>>1103159Because she was obsessed with Layla, so Layla avoided her when possible, which was most of the time>>1103160Mizuki is also a spider>>1103182And I always love hearing it.
>>1103160Mizuki probably has bags of snack for them and she bribes them to keep quiet
>>1103192>Mizuki is also a spiderSo is she just bribing them with flies then? Or is there some kind of spider solidarity where they don't snitch on each other.
>>1103076The point is quite simple: absent the excuse of anger, Layla wouldn't have succumbed to her killing frenzy.If mad, then killing spree.If not mad, no killing spree.The "mad" portion of that extends beyond the initial knee-jerk reaction where she wastes the crowd and into her purposeful and, above all, TARGETED vindictive killing spree afterwards. If she wasn't motivated, why go after specific people?She wasn't randomly killing people after that, she was going after family members and sympathizers of those who initially angered her. Her anger is still attached as the pertinent factor in their demise.An excuse to kill might be the opposite of having a reason to kill, but functionally it is the same thing: a cause.So yea, I guess if I put it that way, it was the reason. It was an excuse, but it was the reason why those people died.
>>1103232>why go after specific people?Because thats what she could justify to Maria.
>>1103227Are there any god's hanging around, or is Fortuna the only one left?
>>1103282Depends on what you consider a god.
>>1103282I'm not sure Fortuna is a god anymore than Min or Santa were.
>>1103311She was worshiped as a god for centuries and has god-like powers. She probably is a god
>>1103326We know nothing about her, for all we know she is a entity that uses the deities name more than anything else.
>>1103337We won't know unless we find out whether her power has divine aspects
>>1103365Thats not really a thing. The setting has pretty much exactly 5 kinds of magic, if she is a "god" the only meaningful category for it would be something like Layla (or Santa) i.e. a being with a metric fuckton of natural magic.
>>1103392She can produce imperial tons of super crit coins. She probably is comparable to a god, if not already being one.
>>1103425>She can produce imperial tons of super crit coins.Technically she doesn't produce those.
>>1103430They are based on her power. She has direct access to the source of that luck. She could probably use a "coin" at will
>>1103442>She has direct access to the source of that luck. She could probably use a "coin" at willIf she could do that then the Coin couldn't be abusing her powers against her will, but they can. So clearly her power is pretty limited.
>>1103455It doesn't help that her champion is tied up in their basement with who knows how many paralytics flowing through his veins. A lot of her power was probably poured into him.
>>1103232I'm back. This is my ID while at work, I guess.>>1103242Really dude? I don't doubt that Layla's fondness of murder factored into the equation, but to still claim it was the primary driving force behind her actions? To insist that what really happened is that she got mad, simmered down, and thought to herself "why stop here? I could probably milk this for a few hundred more people without upsetting Maria too much."She doesn't have an all consuming pathological need to kill people, she is just somewhat predisposed to it.Layla's protectiveness and concern for Maria is practically the most genuine thing about her. If anything could put Layla on the warpath in a "righteous" rage, it would be attacking Maria.You could argue that she had gotten over her initial anger and was just going after the others because she felt like she could get away with it and wanted to because that's how she gets her jollies, but wouldn't the simpler explanation be that her obsession with maria enabled her to feel genuine outrage?Couldn't she have felt that punishing that action with a brutal and disproportionate display would be protecting her precious Maria?This is just me, but I still feel like it was her feelings for Maria and not her affinity for murder that was the main factor. The fact that she was able to feed her murderboner was just icing on the cake.
>>1103556>She doesn't have an all consuming pathological need to kill peopleThats where you are kinda wrong. Layla really really likes doing it, so when she has a excuse to indulge, she does.Hell, Headmaster outright confirmed it.>>1102805>she was furious that Maria got hurt, but some part of her screamed "EXCUSE"She had a excuse before Maria to murder a bunch, and she took it.Oh she was mad, sure. But not at them specifically. Thats not why she killed them. Because, again, if she thought them legitimately culpabhle, she wouldn't have stopped.
>>1103556>Really dude? I don't doubt that Layla's fondness of murder factored into the equation, but to still claim it was the primary driving force behind her actions? To insist that what really happened is that she got mad, simmered down, and thought to herself "why stop here? I could probably milk this for a few hundred more people without upsetting Maria too much."No, I guess you're misunderstanding the sequence of events here.Basically. Maria was attacked, which threw Layla instantly into rage, she killed the people responsible and everyone in the general vicinity for the crime of attacking Maria. But then she kept going. She was mad, sure. But it wasn't at the people she killed so much as just generally being furious about someone having attacked Maria, and indulging in the killing after so long felt good and the situation gave her a excuse to Maria to keep doing it.Layla undoubtedly loves Maria more than killing people, but that was always a thin line.Its the one thing that made her sneak away from Maria, and defy Marias wishes to be able to do it.Why do you think she prioritized going on the murder rampage herself rather than sending out her minions and staying back to pamper Maria after she was attacked like that? Because Layla has a very serious craving for killing people. So yeah, the killing aftr the initial one? That was 100% Layla having a great excuse to do what she loves (besides Maria).
>>1103556>she is just somewhat predisposed to it.This one nade me laugh. Thats the understatement of the year. Layla isn't "just a kittle predisposed" to it. Its her only hobby and the only thing before Maria that she enjoyed doing. You think she had practical reasons for poisoning her parents to death? Burning these kids in her school alive? Layla kills because takes enjoyment from it like a gambler from gambling, a architect designing or just likely you and me from playing a grat vidya or reading a good book. And she got nothing else filling her life that she cares about besides it and Maria
>>1103583Naa, if it was all consuming she wouldn't be able to keep a lid on it like she has been. She wouldn't be able to function without it. Murder is more like her favorite food, not her crack.The things she is willing to do to get it pales in comparison to someone who was ACTUALLY pathologically consumed by a desire for something.>>1103583>Layla really really likes doing it, so when she has a excuse to indulge, she does.Agreed, however, that still sounds more like how someone who really likes cake would act around, well, cake. She doesn't go around fabricating excuses or structuring her ENTIRE LIFE around getting as much of it as possible.She is willing to be patient. It does not consume her very being.
>>1103735>And she got nothing else filling her life that she cares about besides it and MariaThese days its probably like, 50% Maria 40% murder, 10% family.>>1103753>she wouldn't be able to keep a lid on it like she has been. She wouldn't be able to function without it. Murder is more like her favorite food, not her crack.She has a lid on it because Maria is even more crack to her.
>>1103760But if you can protect your stash of crack by shooting up your heroin, why not do it?
>>1103753Maria being more addictive and more important to her us a statement about just how much Maria means to Layka, not about how much she can resist murder.Its not like cake, its more like all your hobbies snd your job combined.Maria is the world to Layla and still Layla constantly snuck out and worried her despite knowing how much it hurts and upsets Maria just to be able to kill.
>>1103753>She doesn't go around fabricating excuses or structuring her ENTIRE LIFE around getting as much of it as possible.Its funny you say that given layla has for years done exactly that. She didn't stay at Ullysses school because she liked the people so much. She stayed there because it gave her the opportunity to indulge in killing at her leisure.And Layla fabricated excuses to murder all the time to Maria.
>>1103654>Why do you think she prioritized going on the murder rampage herself rather than sending out her minions and staying back to pamper Maria after she was attacked like that?>Because Layla has a very serious craving for killing people. So yeah, the killing aftr the initial one? That was 100% Layla having a great excuse to do what she loves (besides Maria).. . . Or she was angry and that anger demanded she seek the catharsis of resolving things herself. We know she has never shied away from killing. So if to Layla's mind there existed a group of people that urgently actually NEEDED killing for once, it wouldn't even occur to her to ask someone else to do the job. And that is basically the case I am trying to make: Layla doesn't often have a typical motive for killing, and this is one of those cases. That was what made it extraordinarily efficient. Remember, it was called "The Thirty Minute Revolution." She wasn't fucking around, she got shit done and fast. She had a mental list of people that she wanted dead and went about it with unusual precision and ardor.At this point, we are basically going back and forth on motive: something that can't be decisively proven. All I can do is try to interpret her actions with respect to what they would seem to indicate.I mean, can you think of an example where Layla was ever this duplicitous with Maria in the past? You kind of do make it sound like she cares more about killing than Maria.
>>1103865>So if to Layla's mind there existed a group of people that urgently actually NEEDED killing for onceBut they didn't. Layla isn't delusional, she can very well distinguish between people respnosiuble and not responsible for a action. She doesn't believe those peoples random family members and friends were in any form responsible for that event. She had no "reason" to kill them and she didn't need one.>>1103865>. She had a mental list of people that she wanted dead and went about it with unusual precision and ardor.You must have faulty memory of ASQ because "efficient and with ardor" is how a lot of her killings went down.>>1103865>At this point, we are basically going back and forth on motive: something that can't be decisively proven.Headmaster confirmed the motive ages ago. She was mad someone had attacked Maria and a part of her told her she got a great excuse now, so she followed up on it.>>1103865>I mean, can you think of an example where Layla was ever this duplicitous with Maria in the past?Literally every single time Maria told her to stay home and she went on a mission anyway, which was like, most of the missions she went on after getting together with Maria.Its kind of a silly question considering just how incredibly common it was.>You kind of do make it sound like she cares more about killing than Maria.You mean ignoring all those half a dozen times I explicitly said she cares more about Maria?But you make the mistake of thinking its a 100% sure thing where maria has completly replaced murder in her life. She hasn't. And never will. Murder is the only thing that makes Layla go against Marias express wishes. Has done so several times. Because its important to Layla. It fulfills her.
>>1103820>>1103792She tolerated the academy for as long as it suited her. Also, she couldn't have left even if she wanted to, at first.And mostly, Layla's approach to murder was much more nonchalant than you guys are making it sound. She did it for the challenge, she did it because she was bored, she did it because "meh, why not." She never killed because "I NEEDS MAH MURDER FIX NAAAOOOOWWW."And lastly, which I feel I can't stress enough, she has killed far fewer people than she would have if she did it EVERY opportunity she could get away with it.I'm just not seeing her fiending for it to the degree you guys imply.
>>1103911>She did it for the challenge, she did it because she was bored, she did it because "meh, why not." She never killed because "I NEEDS MAH MURDER FIX NAAAOOOOWWW."Meh, the implication of a raging addiction was entirely on you really.Layla did it because she had fun doing it and enjoyed doing it. Thats all there is to it. And its something she enjoys doing a lot, like, her most important hobby level. Its not something she gets cold turkey without, but if she goes without murdering for a long time she did get increasing urge to do it again. That came up all the time. Layla constantly started session wtih "Damn I didn't kill anyone in a long time, lets go on a mission".
>>1103911>she has killed far fewer people than she would have if she did it EVERY opportunity she could get away with it.Thats the point where you ignore that Layla is a rational person.Anyway, you are kinda ignoring that before that event Layla hadn't killed anyone in what was likely a ungodly long time for her. The itch was there, so she scratched it.
>>1103911>I'm just not seeing her fiending for it to the degree you guys imply.I don't understand how "hobby and job" implies fiending. That sounds like a hyperbole close to strawmanning.Its something Layla fels a genuine urge to do and feels a lack of not having done iz in a while.
>>1103980>Its something Layla fels a genuine urge to do and feels a lack of not having done iz in a while.Basically like sex. For Layla, killing is what sex is like for other people.You don't sex up literally everyone you meet either. But as a teenager with a healthy libido, you do it kinda often when you can find a socially acceptable opportunity. And sometimes even when you don't and it looks like a really fine lay.And surely you don't go crazy if you haven't had any in a while, but you definitly feel the hormonal pressure.
>>1103996I think the implication of a certain substitute here was always there, IIRC we had even talked about it back on ASQ.
>>1104027>ASQ was a snuff smut quest in disguise all alongNow it comes out! Face your shame Headmaster!
Anyway, I'm out for today. See you next time HM and have a good day anons.
>>1103934I feel like you bought into it with how you fought my contention that she isn't consumed by an unmanageable compulsion to kill. You said that I was wrong for asserting that.Right here:>>1103583Are you agreeing with me now?I am willing to entertain that she started her spree in anger, was reminded of how interesting she found killing to be (even though it was incredibly straightforward and easy. She was a gal who liked her fun, she never assassinated people at long range with guns for example.) and just kept going because it was fulfilling. But clearly she still made some connection to Maria because she did make an effort to limit her targets to individuals related to the attack. Obviously they weren't directly responsible, I never said they were. But Layla might just as well have been so full of anger that she just kept looking for more targets to vent on. She just went for the next best thing.Why is it so hard to accept that her rampage was an act of passion? At least I think that's what the issue is here. You disagree with almost everything I say and I'm a little unclear at this point what the reason is.Remind me again, what am I trying to say that you disagree with?
