A Trip Through Your Own Headhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Island%20Adventure%20Questhttps://twitter.com/GobbleQMCharacter info pastebin in progress: http://pastebin.com/iB0tb7rzDice cheat sheet: http://pastebin.com/994WTT3gGeneral rules:There is a 10 minute voting period after each post. Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.Write-ins for all votes are always welcome and encouraged. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as circumstances warrant.Combat mechanics involve three rolls of 1d100, taking the best, and using the base accuracy and crit ranges of the game, roughly, but the 'turn order' will be more like the anime, where sometimes you can do a few moves in a row or be hit by a combo of moves yourself, all depending on circumstances. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Totodile (dice)Badges: 1Recently: You met with the high ranking clergy on Eelilee and decided to go on a vision quest to prove your worth.

Yay! Made it home in Time! Hope you're doing well gobble

You stand on front of Laki and put your hands on your hips while posing heroically. “I’m always hard.”She looks up at you. It’s only now that you realize how close to her face you got. She smirks. “Doesn’t look like it. But if you were, you’d probably be more popular with the girls.”What does sh- Oh. OH!“I didn’t mean-”She pokes you in the gut, causing you to double over in surprise and a ticklish reflex. “Well, you’re not soft, anyway.” She refers to your stomach. “Relax.”That’s good advice. You look around for where to lie down. You can already feel your head getting heavy. You awkwardly lay down next to Laki, who is tugging at the top of her own towel to cool herself off. You sort of regret lying down now, since the view from above must be something else.Huh. She was right about inhibitions. You’re not a perv or anything, but you usually stop yourself from having those sorts of thoughts when you’re around people. It feels rude to think it unless you’re alone, for some reason.You adjust. You need something to rest your head on. Without thinking, you skooch over to lay your head on Laki’s lap.“Herb?”“Mnehg?”“Nevermind. Too comfy to care.”Your eyes flutter a bit and you decide to close them. You feel Bella come up and snuggle against you.You know what you always thought was funny? Curry is basically just a soup that you stir fry.You’re heavy, you’re relaxed. You’re very much at peace for the time being.You wonder if you’re supposed to think something.“Why do you like to cook?” A nonchalant voice asks from no direction in particular.>Truthfully you just want to feel needed and liked>It’s something you’re good at, that you want to master>The better a cook you are, the less food gets wasted>Because you love to eat>Something else

>>1100726[Sure, why not?]
>>1100875Exactly! Innocent corruption! The best kind!
>>1100849>>1100875HERB IS PUREHE WOULD NEVER EAT GREASY FAST FOOD
You look inside yourself. You feel like you can’t lie right now. Like even if you wanted to, which you don’t, you couldn’t close any of your inner walls.“It’s something I’m good at.” You say louder and prouder than you’d expect yourself to sound. “Something I want to master.”“You have a bit of a spark in you. Is it electric, fire, or perhaps just the shine of a fighting spirit?”The question isn’t for you. It’s contemplative.You look around. You’re in a forest. It’s the same kind as back home, near your grandpa’s old daycare. The tall trees make you feel connected to all the people who came before you, before cars and boats and modern towers and computers and all of that. It was just this, people, pokemon, and the land.You stumble onto spiderweb. Not a pokemon, but just a regular one. You’re about to just sidestep out of the way before you see a butterfly trapped in it. Your eyes fall to a spider on the ground. It’s got a long journey before it gets to it’s trapped prey. For some reason, you can tell how hungry he is. This meal means life and death. It might not even make the journey up.The butterfly struggles.>Free the butterfly.>Help the spider up.>Do nothing. Watch the consequences>Something else
>>1100877That's an excellent butt.
>>1100721>Something elseGood food brings people together.
>>1100954>Help the spider up.Spiders are coolAnd predators need to eat too
>>1100954>Help the spider up.We understand that everyone and everything needs to eat. The butterfly is dead no matter what, but if we help the spider up, it might live.
>>1100954>>Help the spider up.spiderbro worked hard on his web and deserves a good meal
>>1100954>Free the butterflyThe spider goes hungry will probably die
>>1100954>Help the spider up.
>>1100954>Help the spider up.Spiders are bros. They're not so cool when they eat butterflies, but they are when they eat mosquitoes and flies.
>>1100954>>Help the spider up.
>>1100954>>Help the spider up.Try not to start singing about the circle of life.
>>1100954>Something elseMake a small cut on your hand, let the spider drink that. Then let the butterfly out.
>>1100954>Help the spider up.Everyone loves butterflies, but spiders need friends too. They're not so scary once you get to know them.
>>1100954>Do nothing. Watch the consequencesWho is Herb to decide who lives or dies

>Something elseI'm pretty sure we have spider food on us somewhere, if we don't think too hard about it. We can free the butterfly afterwardIf we don't,>Help the spider upbecause spiders are our friends. They keep the garage clear of infestation from bugs!
>>1100954>Do nothing. Watch the consequences
>>1101018Spiders don't drink blood, they use enzymes to break down prey before drinking them, blood body and all.
>>1101036>>1100954Always with the linking and the forgetting the linking and the shame.
>>1101044I know, but this was the only way I could imagine a different way. Herb is always ready to give of himself to others when they need help anyway. Dream logic applies after all.
Look at this little guy. Spiders are our friends.
>>1100954>Help the spider up.All life comes from somewhere. I imagine Herb knows very well that the food he cooks was once alive.
>>1101075Yeah you're wierd
>>1101114Just trying to think outside the box is all.
You reach out your hand. The spider, too weak to run, watches helplessly. But you don’t crush it. You offer it help. It climbs onto your hand, then off of it when you get to the butterfly. It consumes it’s prey without thought or mercy, then in an acceleration of time, moves on to have many eggs and offspring.“An affinity for predators? An appreciation for the natural laws?” The voice speculates.You’re a guard to the gates of paradise, in shining golden armor. Your job is to judge those who enter. You want to let in the righteous, and turn away anyone who would make it worse. Only after you choose do you know someone’s true intentions.Last time, you allowed a man entry. He appeared fine, your view of his life from here allowed you to see him work with charity. He had a stain of blood on his hands, though. He claimed it was the blood of a friend who had suffered an injury, who he saved.The man went on the cause havoc once inside. He weakened things, causing damage and injury. He had lied. The utopia can withstand a few more of those, but not many before it’s walls would fall.Another man with blood on his hands comes, asking to be let in. A doctor, he says. What you can see of his life seems to back that up. You have a better feeling about him, but still.>Bar the gates for all newcomers.>Trust him. Let him in.>Turn him away.>Allow everyone in. This is utopia, it can handle it
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in.All make mistakes. At least this dude probably saved more lives than he may have potentially possibly maybe taken.
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in.
The (non-canon) result.
>>1101222>Question him some more, ask what kind of doctor, pose some theoreticals to him. If nothing he says throws up red flags, let him by.
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in.You can't abandon trust and goodwill just because you got burned.
>>1101222>>Trust him. Let him in.
>>1101222>trust him. Let him inAffinity with predators will help is with hydreigon and later with dice
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in.Trust is not a weakness.
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in.If his life backs up the claim, then we have no reason to deny him.
>>1101222>Allow everyone in. This is utopia, it can handle it.If it can't, then we'll need to help build something better. Utopia shouldn't be so flimsy that the neglect of one guard should lead to its collapse.
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in.One bad apple shouldn't poison our opinion of everyone.
>>1101222>Trust him. Let him in
>>1101222>Allow everyone in. This is utopia, it can handle itIf it's a utopia it should be able to accommodate everyone without collapsing. If it can't, even the real world is safer and more stable.
>>1101396I think the idea is that it theoretically could handle everyone, but people who maliciously cause harm could easily destroy it, and that's why a guard has to pass judgment.
>>1101414But if we don't let them in, where are they going to go? Hell?I don't want that. Doesn't matter what they've done, that life is over now. I'd rather not damn anyone.
“You may pass.”You step aside, and the man enters paradise. Only time will tell if he makes it better, or makes it lesser.You turn to see a trade ship that was launched a long time ago. Pokemon and sailors scurry about on the deck, getting ready to dock.“Herb!” The man yells. It’s someone you know. A friend.“You call yourself Herb in your head.” The disconnected voice comments. You move on. “Friend! That’s a different ship than what you left on.”He shakes his head. “The materials faded over time. First we replaces one part, then the other, then eventually all of them. We updated the design as well. We even had a change of helpers. I’m the only original piece.”You give it a closer look. He’s right. The crew, while all acting just like the old one with their work, is made of different faces. The pokemon are from different lands. The ship is made of different materials and the design is different too. Yet the name, The Tauros, is the same.You think you heard about this thought experiment somewhere. You don’t remember.>It’s the same, because that’s how it’s designated>It’s the same ship until your friend steps off of it, then it’s different>It’s different because it’s not made of the same stuff that left>It’s different, but only because it change the design>Something else
>>1101396while that would be great, even utopias have a carrying capacity. The Kaibab plateau was a utopia for deer, and they destroyed the place by wiping out the food supplies>>1101432problem is they don't leave that life behind. He was still a murderer, in the utopia and the other world
>>1101443>>It’s the same ship until your friend steps off of it, then it’s differentThings are only yours when you are at the helm and own it.
>>1101443>It’s the same ship until your friend steps off of it, then it’s different
>>1101443>>It’s the same, it's the same legacy
>>1101443>>It’s the same ship until your friend steps off of it, then it’s different
>>1101443>Something elseIt's the same, both because it has the same function, and because of it's origins.
>>1101443This >>1101469It will always carry the memories of those who sailed on it
>>1101443It's the ship of Theseus!>Something elseFrom the moment it left port it was a different ship. Slightly more aged, slightly more used, but close enough to the original that we may as well call it the same.I'd call it the same ship, though, given the name. That's just a matter of opinion, though, not of philosophy. That lets me be self-inconsistent about where to draw the line.
>>1101443>>1101469Supporting. We create our legacy.
>>1101469>>1101491SupportingCouldnt think of a better way to say it.Well done anons
>>1101469Yeah, good call.
>>1101498>>1101478>>1101469I'll switch to back these. They're more apt descriptions.
>>1101443"only because it change the design"[My bad. Preemptive, huge butt]
>>1101443>First we replaces one partIs this a butt, Gobble?
>>1101443>It’s different because it’s not made of the same stuff that left
>>1101469>>>1101443>>>It’s the same, it's the same legacymy vote
>>1101443>>1101469Supporting this as well
>>1101443Supporting >>1101469It isn't completely the same, but it's origins and purpose are still the same as the original.
>>1101443>>It’s the same, because that’s how it’s designatedJust because you replace a part, doesn't mean the whole changes. When the first board was replaced it didn't go from 'The Tauros' to 'Most Of The Tauros And An Extra Plank'. Why would it be any different once you go a bit further? That's stupid. The human body replaces itself every seven years, doesn't mean you have to keep holding funerals for yourself on account of your tragic sept-annual departure from existence.The Ship of Theseus was asinine when it was concocted and it's still asinine today....sorry. It bugs me.
>>1101536this is unsettling
>>1101558The problem with that is that your nerve cells- the seat of your consciousness- are almost completely the ones you started with as a baby, just bigger and with far more connections between them than there were at the time.
>>1101570AnonWhy would post something so lewdBellas in the thread
>>1101558At a certain point, it's not gonna be the ship of Theseus. To take it to the extreme, if they kept rebuilding and changing the ship, it'll be so far removed from the original that you can't tell it's related at all. Thesues never traveled on a paddle steamer, even if it shares a name with his ship.Or to compare it to humans, if you had every part of your body surgically replaced, including your entire brain, are you even you anymore?
>>1101558It holds more relevance when you consider extending a human consciousness into another form, such as a computer, and have one part end while the other continues. Alternately, events such as traumatic brain injury that might radically change a person.
>>1101651should I switch to this genre?
>>1101673Yes! Post more!Herb would love the shit outta that Sylveon
“It’s the same. It’s the same legacy.”“That’s an interesting philosophy, Herb of the Mainland. I-”The disconnected voice is poofed away. An unrelenting force of wind sweeps in so strongly that somewhere in the back of your head, you feel like your actual hair is blown back. This is something beyond the tea. The aura in the air is different. It’s like your dream from before.The mighty snake, or dragon, or whatever presence it is, takes over the sky. It’s power is overwhelming. But it doesn’t want to hurt you. Or maybe it can’t. You don’t know, but it bellows loudly. The sound and power don’t just come from it’s mouth, but from the surroundings and sky itself. This isn’t just a pokemon. It’s like a deity.You don’t feel the fear or pressure like before. It’s probably because of the tea and how relaxed you are.It’s fangs are showing. It’s slithering around in frustration, like it’s trying to do something but can’t. It looks to your imagination, then to your memories. It moves forward.>Stop it from touching your memories. Let it play with your imagination>Stop it from touching your imagination, it can touch your memories>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitality>Prove to it your affinity for predators>Something else
>>1101673This is sad. Youre sad. Go cry in a corner, saddy.
>>1101622>Or to compare it to humans, if you had every part of your body surgically replaced, including your entire brain, are you even you anymore?yep, to be alive is to wake up every morning and to say "I'm _______ and this is my purpose" if you can't do that then you're basically already dead, as long as you can still do that it does not matter if every bit of your body is replaced or you're put in a computer or turned into energy or some shit you're still you.
>>1101689>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitalityFUG BEST SNAKE
>>1101689>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitalityfailing that>Stop it from touching your imagination, it can touch your memories
>>1101689>>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitality
>>1101689>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitalityWelcome it into your mind and offer hospitality.
>>1101689>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitalityI.. don't quite get the intent behind Prove to it your affinity for predators? What's up with that gobble?
>>1101689>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitality.
>>1101689>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitality
>>1101689>stop all that. Offer it snacks and hospitality
>>1101713[The snack thing is more to show it what Herb's world is like. The predator thing is more to understand it's world]
>>1101739Huh. Yeah I don't know which I like better.
>>1101689I think you miss understood the spider scene gobble, to me at least it had nothing to do with affinity for predators. The butterfly was suffering with fear, the spider was suffering with hunger; this is nature it is how things work, speeding it along was a mercy.>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitality
>>1101689>>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitalityFind someone in trouble? Solve it with food
>>1101625>Alternately, events such as traumatic brain injury that might radically change a person.That's actually a good point. Consciousness being the point of continuity in the case of a human. The consciousness being 'you'. You think as yourself, therefore you are yourself. Should that cease to be so, you - or rather not you - are someone else.>>1101689>>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitalityGive food to nice snake.
>>1101755That, pretty much. Trying to push one particular narrative for a story doesn't necessarily mean misunderstanding, though.
>>1101689>>Stop all that. Offer it a snack and hospitality>>1101696It's not a matter of purpose, it's more about how human brains work. If you had a piece of a brain implanted to replace a damaged bit, that piece is gonna have memories from it's donor. Keep doing that until none of your original brain is gone. No childhood memories are left, no first love, no friendships. Nothing is left from your past, everything is an amalgamation of donor memories. The original brain is gone, so your personality is only based on your memory of your personality and memories from donors
>>1101709>Forfeiting your memoriesJust Alzheimers my shit up senpai
>>1101768I know, I just wanted to make clear to gobble what our symbolic vote actually stood for so there was not a misunderstanding. Symbolic shit can be tricky, especially in a group format. I would hate him to suddenly get the idea that herb was a secret bully or some shit with a might is right attitude; as unlikely as him thinking that seems.
>>1101739>Herb>affinity for predatorsAnd in case there was any confusion, I also interpreted the spider thing as a case of whether we respected the natural order or not.
>>1101780Memories can potentially be relearned, or replaced with better ones, provided that we're not just handed Alzheimers. You can't fix stupid.
>>1101689>Stop it from touching your imagination, it can touch your memories
>>1101689>Something elseCan we just... traipse around our imagination and memories with it in tow? We can try and understand what it wants by holding up our life and thoughts to it, offer perspective while attempting to understand it.
>>1101791>himYou mean Fug?
>>1101808Actually, scratch this, I'm going with>Stop it from touching your memories. Let it play with your imaginationIt can communicate this way, but fuck with someone's memories and you can wind up destroying them.Also, sorry I'm late.
>>1101811That sounds fun. But not until it's had a home cooked meal.
>>1101811I'm all for doing that after we give it a good meal and have some tea.
>>1101791>>1101823Gobble is an AH-64 Apache you shitlords.
>>1101836>>1101845Fair enough. Give it a tastehahof what it's in for before we start the journey.
>>1101791Is it wrong that i kind of want herb to slowly ramp up into senator armstrong levels of badassery
>>1101874I'm all on board if we can get on-demand sparkles out of it.
>>1101886Would it be worth the expenses spent buying new shirts?
>>1101823everyone on the internet is a guy until proven otherwise, besides he can't be bothered to correct me so I'll call him what I please.
>>1101891>I played college ball >University of Loanah, you don't know who you're deali'n with son.
>>1101891just only wear pants and hatswe can just amass an amazing collection of hats, starting with a tricorn
>>1101903Gobble is proven female lumberjack with pink hair.
>>1101874I want him to stay a pansy boy who's unexpectedly badass when circumstances force him to be.
>>1101891We'd need to experiment with shirtless styles. Probably new ground for Herb, so it'd be fun.
>>1101903But Gobble has been proven to be a girl... like multiple times Why do we go over this like every other thread?
>>1101891We need to find a source of income. This is becoming more blaringly obvious as we use up all of our money a day or two after getting it.Worry seed coffee is an idea, but anyone who has tried to put new food products on the market knows that it usually takes close to 6 months to see an increase in profits. Thats why Im thinking we have to make a cafe chain to rival Starbucks' growth and potential, with better coffee.
>>1101922Newfags gonna newfag.
>>1101936Eh. We all start sometime.I think the second thread I ever posted in was one of Gobble's back on /tg/, and that was years after the first thread I ever posted in.
“Hey, hold on.” you step in front of it like a cartoon figure. Your legs feel like tubs of liquid that you control. You’re relaxed and fine.It looks incredibly confused. It has important things to say.You’re already cooking up some pancakes. You’ve had a craving for them all day. You toss one over.It floats in front of the creature. He’s shrunk to your size. He sniffs, then bites it.And he looks impressed. You’d hope so. That’s the best pancake you’ve ever made.“Relax.” You feel mellow and want to spread it. “Get comfortable. The next course is coming up.” You’re already cooking it up, adjusting heat levels and taste testing.It looks very frustrated with this time wasting and tomfoolery, but when you toss it the last of the pancakes, it begrudgingly eats them. You feel like you’ve established a stronger connection.It wants to show you something, but it thinks you might misunderstand. He wants peace, but not before he fixes something.“I don’t understand what you’re talking about.” You say casually, adjusting your sunglasses. You’re just feeling so chill with things that they appeared.He wants to show you something for now, but only if you promise to lie about it for now. To trust him in that he has a plan. You feel a great and terrible amount of ego and shame being suppressed as it asks you this favor.>Okay>No. You won’t lie>Lie about promising to lie. You’ll actually decide after you see it>Something else
>>1101919But were's the character development?We can't be a pansy forever
>>1101967I posted in Gobble's first Pokemon Quest thread. Boy am I glad Gobble is still a QM.
>>1101982>okayTrust the spirit quest
>>1101982>Okayits trying as evidenced by it holding back its ego, so we'll give it the benefit of the doubt
>>1101982>>Okay>Anything I should say in place of this thing you're going to show me?
>>1101982>OkayTrusting random pokemon has helped us before, and being friends with Fug would be very good for us
>>1101982>OkayI assume that it wants us to keep this secret from the priests.
>Something elseWe can't promise before we've seen it. But if we can't promise it afterward, then we can forget it.We'll try to help, though. We really will.
>>1101982>OkayWhat could go wrong?
>>1102017>>1101982Dammit. I get so excited with typing I forget the the very basic fucking things. Like linking my vote.
>>1101982>Something elseWhat is the lie? Whom would i have to lie to? How long would i have to live with such a burden?
>>1101982>>No. You won’t lie
>>1101982>OkayWhen Rayquaza asks you to cover for it for a while you cover for it for a while. Unless hes into drugs. Then you tell the coach that Rayquaza's been doping.
>>1101982>OkayScrewing with a god is never a good idea.
I hope it doesn't show us awful things happening to our friends and we can't warn them.
>>1101936nigga I have been on 4chan for over a literal decade, I would very much like to see this proof; after the thread. Otherwise Gobble is a guy as it is what I want to believe.
>>1101982>No. You won’t lieSorry Fug.If we lose we at the very least have to be transparent about the fact that we promised to keep something secret. IE, not lie, but straight up state we're not divulging something.
>>1102061Just look in the archives, she was doxed once early on and then she posted a picture of herself while she was drunk.
>>1100601>people are still reposting thisI don't know how to process this feel.
>>1102091>>1102061This is something I don't think we should bring up or put much stock into.When you guys care so much it's kind of cringey, in addition to the fact that it's likely passing a bit of a boundary. Remember that long ass hiatus? Just let it be.
>>1102091I remember Gobble being dox'ed, but I think I would remember a picture and I do not recall one. Find it and link it after the thread if you wouldn't mind.
>>1102122>>1102115or don't I really do not even care, and if it might make Gobble uncomfortable then forget about it. Gonna keep calling Gobble him though.
>>1102115Sorry I guess, I have an issue with people being deliberately dense or hard to deal with.
>>1102091I just read through the old quest and I don't remember this ever happening in one of the threads. Gobble mentioned getting doxed in one thread, but it never happened in one of the quest threads.
>>1102091>>1102122[I never posted pictures of myself]>>1102093[I honestly don't care. It's 4chan. 4chan pranks and comments have evolved beyond people like me to electing presidents.]
>>1102181God you really were drunk, it was a picture of you at a con in cosplay. Or some sort of costume. well whatever, it doesn't matter
>>1102192That was just a picture from the Manchester Con. It was from a online magazine coverage. You can reverse search it and see for yourself.
>>1102091Well you heard the man uEFvZbK9 he doesn't mind, post the picture after the thread or you are a fucking liar.>>1102181sorry for shitting up your thread gobble, I truly do feel awful.
>>1102211well shit on me, nevermind then
“Okay.”It growls as it nods. You don’t think it’s growling at you, though.You’re transported to the sky, high above a massive island. Maybe it’s better to be called a continent. Primitive settlements and peoples can be seen. They look like Loanah people, but the clothes and buildings are all wrong, and it’s one island.Your vision blurs and you fly high, high, high up into the sky. And that’s when you see it. The dragon. Rayquaza.There’s movement and confusion, like you’re seeing someone else’s point of view and they’re fighting, but there’s a little of what you can see. The Rayquaza summoned a massive swarm of meteors. Fiery death is coming down.Your vision blurs to something incomprehensible. Time skips, and you can see the continent now. Except it’s no longer a continent. It’s a series of islands. It’s Loanah. The scars of horrible destruction fade with time, but the once united landmass was so devastated and the civilization and pokemon so destroyed, that things changed forever.You’re returned back to the cooking space. The pokemon deity stares into your eyes. Everything you saw was true, but it’s not the truth.“I don’t know what that means.”You will. Just keep your promise and don’t let them put me to rest yet.It starts to fade away.>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?>Well you’re breaking that promise! You’re a monster!>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxed.>Something else
>>1102261>>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?Oh mega Fug
>>1102261>>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?
>>1102261>>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxed.
>>1102261>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxed.I doubt he'd have shown us this if he thought we'd want to stop it. There's probably more to this than meets the eye.
>>1102261>>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?>And why did you do that? What were you fighting?
>>1102261>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxed.
>>1102261>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?
>>1102261>>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxedWe'll come up with something.
>>1102215[Relax. I really don't mind. These things do not bother me one bit.]
>>1102261>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?Hope this isn't the end and this kicks off Aura powers.
>>1102304I have to apologize too, have a butt
>>1102261>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxed.Don't think about the fact that Rayquaza probably meteored the world to break up an argument between legendaries and doesn't want to be sealed away because he thinks it'll happen again and he'll need to intervene to save the world from complete annihilation in a way that hopefully doesn't involve pummeling the planet with giant space rocks.Yeah. We're cool.
>>1102304Hey Gobble, I asked this question on your twitter, but you might not have seen it: in light of all the stuff you've been having to deal with, and to give something back to you for being such a great QM in general, I want to write a lewdbin for you.What would you like to see in it? I'll makeit extra special, just for you.
>>1102261Okay. Cool man. You're still relaxed
>>1102261>Wait, what should I tell them I saw?>>1102322So somewhere in the world, the plot of Emerald is taking place, except this time just yelling at everybody to sit the fuck down isn't gonna cut it.
>>1102304they bother me, you're like my drug dealer here and it's like I'm fucking up your house while waiting for my next hit. Let alone it's rude as fuck it is also delaying the time before I get those sweet sweet drugs into my system by sidetracking you with this shit.
>>1102356>You’re transported to the sky, high above a massive island. Maybe it’s better to be called a continent. Primitive settlements and peoples can be seen. They look like Loanah people, but the clothes and buildings are all wrong, and it’s one island.>Time skips, and you can see the continent now. Except it’s no longer a continent. It’s a series of islands. It’s Loanah.Not 'taking place'. It already happened.
>>1102348[Oh! Sorry for missing it. I'm not sure. Something that involves both Kat and Herb would be neat]
>>1102382Celebi and Dialga playing matchmaker?
>>1102382Cool, message me once you figure out more specifics.
>>1102261>Okay. Cool man. You’re still relaxed.So Rayquaza nuked old Loanah in order to stop... something. There was fighting involved, possibly with other legends.And it's all but begging us to keep them from putting it to rest.Interesting. Doubtless it thought there was a good reason to do so, but clearly somebody (possibly the priesthood) knows about what happened and somehow holds sway over it in some capacity, and wants to keep it sealed/bound/something because of what happened in the past.
>>1102396It's probably bound because it nuked the old world. Whatever was going on, what Rayquaza did was enough to end it, so it was probably magnitudes beyond what was going on at the time.People probably didn't know why Rayquaza did it, only that it did, and they bound it out of fear that would do so again. Time has passed since the event, so people are unlikely to ever uncover the truth of what happened.If the people responsible for keeping the seal found out Rayquaza could communicate with us, they might reinforce it and further limit its actions.
What if Rayquaza didn't summon the meteors but was trying to save everything from them
>>1102382An older Kat seducing Herb while Robin, Laki, and Keira look on...?
“Okay. It’s cool, man.” You stretch. You’ll figure something out.It fades. But you know you’ll meet again.“He’s fine.” You hear a familiar voice say. Keira? You feel like you feel her presence.“Hmm. Yes. I can see into his head again. But I was cut out before.” You hear the disconnected voice. It’s strange to hear it be so real.“Well, okay. I guess we should let them be until they’re done, then.” Keira says. Her tone is more formal. Must be another person in the clergy.“Yes.” The other voice says. “I’m interested in Laki as well. We’ll let the mainlander be. I think I’ve seen enough.”Was she spying on your trip? You bet you’d feel violated if you could care at the moment. But you’re still so relaxed.You hear Keira and the other person leave. Your head snuggles into whatever nice pillow you’re using.>Wake up. You’re done and need to study Rayquaza before they ask about your vision quest>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillow>Try to meditate>Something else
>>1102522>>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillow
>>1102522>>Try to meditate
>>1102518what, were the meteors a fleet sent by deoxys?>>1102522>Try to meditate
>>1102522>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillowWe can study when we wake up. We're too chill to worry about it now.
>>1102522>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillowAs if there was another option.
>>1102522Wake up, you need to study rayquaza before they ask you about your vision quest
>>1102522>Something elseLets try and see if we can see into the outside world. Just make sure we stay relaxed the whole time because being relaxed is awesome.
>>1102522>Try to meditate
>>1102545we wont have time to study if we do that, that's why Gobble said we need to wake up to study
>>1102522>Snuggle into the Keira-shaped pillow you can sense nearby
>>1102522>Try to meditateon the off chance we get powers from it.
>>1102522>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillow
>>1102522>Try to meditateRayquaza themed super powers pls. They're way better than a post about a waifu
>>1102522>Try to meditatePissing against the Laki tide.
>>1102579>>1102584>>1102587>1 post by this ID
>>1102538It's not unprecedented, given how that's literally how Deoxys ended up arriving on earth in ORAS.
>>1102522>>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillowplease work internet
>>1102595Nice catch; looks like we have some samefagging in the thread.
>>1102522>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillowLet's do it!
>>1102601yeah... so is it going to be a full on squadron of deoxys (1 in each form I bet) or will it be a federation of various interstellar pokes... will there be mechs? god I hope there will be mechs
>>1102625>>1102637>>1102646>1 post by this IDat this point it's almost looks like a false flag
>>110261950/50 chance it's false-flagging.Either way it's annoying.
[Let's redo that. Any "1 post by this ID" posts will be ignored for this vote.]>Mediate>Snuggle
>>1102663>Mediate(don't you mean meditate not mediate) still my vote either way.
>>1102663>>SnuggleBut why not both?
>>1102522>Go to sleep and snuggle your body pillow>Try to meditateActually, can we try to do both?
>>1102663can we do both? If not, snuggle.
>>1102669[Yeah, my bad.]
>>1102663Oh goddamnit. I get home after 9 hours at work and "one post is ignored"?Eh. you've built a reputation for being reasonable and having everyone's best interests at heart. Whatever.I wanted to vote for meditate.
>>1102663>MeditateWould also be okay with both as an option.
>>1102694if you vote now you wont have 1 post
>>1102663>SnuggleMuh post was real boyos
>>1102674>>1102686>>1102701>the (1)s from before voting againstop that
>>1102708I assumed he meant that anyone that had one post in this second vote would be ignored.
>>1102708What, is a lurker not allowed to vote now?
>>1102705I'm not sure what you mean. That vote is my first post from my home wifi. It is indistinguishable, at the moment, from tomfuckery.I'm perfectly willing to sit out my first vote of the night for the sake of the quality of the thread though.
>>1102708>>1102722after all they could just be lurkers coming out of the woodwork for a waifu related vote. seems to happen a lot in these quests
>>1102732Just got home and just caught up on the thread actually
>>1102708This is also time EU anons wake up and West Coast normie anons get home from work
>>1102732I am one of those guys been lurking whole thread but I am abstaining from this one. Gonna go back to lurking and playing DQ VII now
>>1102726It's why I vote on everything/make comments. I used to just vote once or twice but now people jump down your throat for it.
>>1102726This has been discussed before. It's completely reasonable to call out probable samefagging because it does happen and it has the power to shit up quests completely because if one side does it the other side starts thinking it's okay since the first side is doing it.Does Wrestlequest ring a bell?
>>1102663>SnuggleAm I too late?
>>1102759>Does Wrestlequest ring a bell?I frown at your likely unintentional pun.
>>1102663>SnuggleWelp, I'm late.
>>1102726when six lurkers all post for the first time, with 5/6 having the exact same opinion, it looks like samefagging
>>1102783The call of the Waifu is strong anon.
>>1102783While I agree with you, in all fairness there were really only two choices here. It's not that unlikely for them to tend a certain way, especially when that way points to a potential waifu.
>>1102791true, strong enough to promote samefagging and lurkersthat's why I post butts, no one questions the butt dealer
Does anyone know what the Tally is? Gobble was kinda vague about whether it was new 1 post ids or the ones from before
[Well balls. I'm actually counting a tie. It sort of diminishes the concept of voting, but for this one issue I'm going to say fuck it and just do both. We'll just magically say there was more time than originally implied and roll with that. Sorry about all the time wasting. This is also a good lesson to remember not to make waifu stuff compete with non-waifu stuff in the same vote.Anywho, please give me some meditation rolls.]
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>1102813
>>1102806I'd post more but I most likely would be Jane posting and I rather save that for post thread instead of waifu wars taking up space for no reason. Also DQ VII is fun, I miss Kiefer though.
Rolled 98 (1d100)>>1102813
Rolled 42 (1d100)>>1102813
>>1102806What if everyone posted the same butts at once? What then mighty butt dealer!
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>1102813
>>1102813It's cool, Gobble. Sometimes you just have to say fuck it. It's not like this is a hugely important choice anyway.
>>1102827>98We are the zennest motherfuckers to ever zen.
>>1102827Okay, we're now going to get some insight on the trip.
>>1102827oh boy!>>1102826I picked up VII a bit ago and haven't gotten to playing it yet, is it good?
>>1102827Good job anon
>>1102827good job anonif we get super powers, what should our superhero name be?
>>1102827Trust in mega fug, he delivers
>>1102813Laki a best gobble. >>1102855Herb. Or.. or John!
>>1102827The snuggles have granted us more power than any would dare imagine.
>>1102835hah, you think anyone has my butts? I get my shit imported over the border by the Colombian mob. They have enslaved dozens of artists to supply me
>>1102846I've played most DQ except the PS2 ones since I never had one, it's fun but long I still don't have the full party yet but recently got the job changing. Nothing tops V for me though it's my favorite
>>1102872I want a full size version of chickenchan in there
>>1102905You're a good person
>>1102827The cosmic truth of thighs.Oh Lord. Last time we meditated we stayed under for hours. How long as you going to keep Laki pinned down with cuddles?
>>1102876Having just recently finished V for the first time, I'm inclined to agree.
>>1102846It's a marathon of a game, and I mean that in a good way. It's definitely my favorite of the entire DQ franchise.Unfortunately the new localization is pretty crappy, but otherwise the gameplay is mostly unchanged, which is the meat and potatoes of the game.
You don’t worry about that and go back to dreaming. No, meditating. It’s no longer a vision quest, but it’s something you feel you can do better in your current state of mind.You’re the farthest thing from an expert at meditation, but you think that’s sort of your problem. You try. You heard you’re not supposed to try, just do. All that advice ever did though, was make you try not to try.But none of that matters right now. You’re able to freely reach deep within, and see something you never could before. And it’s because you’re not attached to it that it works.You fall into your mind and find...>Secrets to meditation in general. You can use this to teach Mace (no powers, just very helpful to training Mace and anyone else that needs it)>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*>The ability to heal*>The ability to see and sense things that aren’t there.*>Something else[*You will start out incredibly shitty.]
>>1103053>>The ability to heal*
>>1103053>The ability to see and sense things that aren’t there.just vague enough to be interesting
>>1103053>>Secrets to meditation in general. You can use this to teach Mace (no powers, just very helpful to training Mace and anyone else that needs it)
>>1103053>The ability to heal*What's that astric for? Like.. heal like cuts? Bruses.. or do we mean feels?
>>1103053>>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*
>>1103053>The ability to heal*
>>1103053>>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*>>1103073>[*You will start out incredibly shitty.]
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*
>>1103081Oh right. Other things to read. Sounds good.Healing good can come eventually. No eye left behind anon.
>>1103073[Yeah. Very minor stuff and it's still difficult and unreliable for now.]
>>1103053>The ability to healIm good with starting out shitty. We have Keira for aura and speech magics right now. We are effectively team dad. We need to learn to heal with our minds.
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*It'll help with our goal of being buddies with random Pokémon and might extend to humans over time. Finding out what the ghost priest asshole's aura looks like would've good too
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*Neato.
>>1103053>The ability to heal*Truly, the kindest power.
>>1103053>>1103085actually... I change my vote to:>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*
>>1103053>The ability to healThough aura would be fine too.
>>1103053>>The ability to heal*Duh.
>>1103053>The ability to see and sense things that aren’t there.*
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*Could help us catch them easier
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*>The ability to see and sense things that aren’t there.*One of these.
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*Talk to all our friends!
>>1103053>>1103115>>The ability to heal*Shit gonna change my vote since my original has no support and I don't wish to see aura, healing sounds nice even though I don't want powers
>>1103149Yeah I think healing is the most useful. Being able to eventually* prevent people from dying sounds super useful.
>>1103101>>1103053On second thought, I'll switch mine to>the ability to healI don't want Herb to turn into a total rehash of what's her name from last quest.
>>1103053>>The ability to heal*Learning to Doolittle would be amazing, but healing Herb too good.
>>1103053>The ability to heal
you know, if seeing aura wins out, Herb is gonna freak out. Imagine if you never saw the color blue and after getting high af you can suddenly. Also how thick/see through are the auras? Every pokemon will be different colors than the pokedex says they are.
>>1103053>How to read the auras of pokemon, maybe even understand them like Keira*Ah, fuck I'm late as hell.This is why I fucking hate housework.
>>1103189Eh I'm not a fan. Pokemon becomes a bit creepy if you can suddenly talk to all your mons.
>>1103189By my count healing is winning right now
>>1103225I fucking hate it in my smut when the Pokemon suddenly starts talking in English. I know exactly what you mean.There's a good chance it would be more 'hearing the intent' behind the talking than anything else. Less quotation marks, more plain text.
>>1103053>>The ability to heal*I just think it's neat
>>1103183>healing herb>herb is about to gain magic powers from drug teaHerb is going to be such a manly hippie faggot can't wait
>>1103225I don't think aura leads to talking. Keira had to learn it like a new language, compared to aura which is more of a innate power that has to be awoken. Aura would lead to understanding how they're feelingPersonally I think healing is a boring power. It's only ever useful in extremely niche situations like Robin's eye. Starting out, we won't even be able to do that. Robin's eye required a psychic, aura reader, a girl almost killing herself, power boosting crystals, and it only caused a scar to form instead of fully healing. Herb will only ever be able to heal minor cuts unless we find some of those crystals
>>1103280You just haven't seen decent healing get creative enough.
>>1103280>Robin's eye required a psychic, aura reader, a girl almost killing herself, power boosting crystals,Also a whole team of Psychic mons power boosting the whole thing.
>>1103291what can it do?Cause cancers?
>>1103262he's becoming the Hiker from pokemon sun and moon...
>>1103303Function as a safety for BDSM shenanigans, clearly.
>>1103280Also, the only person we're likely to know that we'll ever need to use that power on is Herb himself.
>>1103303Keep food fresh at all times. Possibly help with life threatening injuries.
You fall deep into your mind and soul, and see who you really are. You’re a supporter. A helper. You like to make things all better. You have the heart of a healer. You’d probably study to be a nurse if didn’t spend so much time on cooking and fashion.You reach your hands out and touch something. You feel a connection to this living creature. A small irritant on the skin. Probably just a rash, like something you’d get from falling on the ground. You feel a warm pulsing on your hand, and it fades.Boy, that took a little out of you. Even as relaxed as you are, you feel it. Nothing some rest and food can’t take care of, you’re sure.You snuggle up close to your big warm fleshy body pillow. It smells nice. It even wraps around you a bit. “Hmmm. That feels nice.” it mumbles. Somewhere in the back of your head, you think that body pillows don’t mumble. But details like that just aren’t important right now.[That’s all for tonight. I have a bit to do tomorrow but we should still be running.]
>>1103303stimulate the appropriate glands to produce adrenaline at key moments to boost strength, turn on other hormones (melatonin and others) for sleep, induce pleasure, induce pain. the ability to manipulate the human body in the ways healing can has a ton of potential.
>>1103324Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>1103324thanks gobble, have a good night
Actually, now that I'm thinking about it.>Herb with healing powers.
>>1103304complete with short native girl waifu>>1103317obviously it depends how Gobble handles it, but I assume it functions like xmen regeneration. It speeds up the healing process. Keeping food fresh sounds like the opposite of that, stopping it from changing state
>>1103324See you next time gobble! thanks for running!
>>1103324Thanks for running!
>>1103312Well Herb is a bit of a sub...
>>1103324See you tomorrow! We missed you Gobble.I missed you the most.
>>1103334Pearl Jam is the best fucking stand. My favorite. Beautiful.>>1103324Thanks for running Gobbs!
>>1103324Thanks Gobble, you are great!
>>1103324thanks for running gobble
>>1103350>I missed you the mostfite me
>>1103335But Herb's waifu is tall and muscular. You must be thinking of the main character from a different quest.
>>1103324we sweet guy now
>>1103324Thanks again Gobble. >You snuggle up close to your big warm fleshy body pillow. It smells nice. It even wraps around you a bit. “Hmmm. That feels nice.”Question....isn't there another priestess in this room too? Hope she's enjoying the show
>>1103370This was posted like 5 threads ago.
>>1103376>>1103382I know. I posted it.
>>1103363nah, Herb's waifu isn't shittime for the post thread waifu wars?
>>1103324Night Gobble. Thanks for running.
>>1103325Those aren't healing though. Maybe we'll be able to learn to do that in the distant future but there's a difference between just accelerating the body's natural healing process and snatching control of completely separate organs of the human body.
>>1103398Sure, Jane is my favorite but I'll settle for Hana or Laki.Also thanks for running Gobble.
>>1103398>nah, Herb's waifu isn't shitThat's why Laki's his waifu.
>>1103398Of course she isn't. That's why he described her as perfect.>>1103412Jane is a horrible shark monster. But she and Laki are the only true options.
>>1103413there you go again with these bizarre typos. Might want to get a new keyboard mate
>>1103427My keyboard is magic and compels absolute truth. That's why it's forcing me to tell everyone you've got lice.
>>1103427>Laki's gonna talk to Herb in french when she rides himYum.
>>1103408Well stimulating an organ seems within the realm of healing at least, it depends on whether healing is just applying aura energy to a system to make it function or if it somehow reverses states. either way that'd probably be a grandmaster level technique even if it is possible...I just figured it made a good explanation for herbs sudden bursts of power and dexterity
>>1103408>>1103325That said, if we could do that then we could also stimulate our own body to produce growth hormone and testosterone too get SWOLE.Or Jane's prolactin levels to distract her with surprise breast milk.
>>1103398Hana and Keira have been constantly vying for first place for me, but the brief amount of time we spent bonding with Valerie made me like her a lot too. Jane and Laki are roughly tied in the position of not being bad choices, but being less preferable to the other girls.
>>1103463>stimulating an organ seems within the realm of healingNot really.
>>1103488>>1103398Hana best girlHana and cute, suddenly nervous-Laki best lewdbinJane a shit.
>>1103446now that's just rude anon. Also factually incorrect, as you lied in >>1103350>>1103452>implying second worst girl knows more than one languagetraining your whole life to jump high, then drinking your sorrows away aren't very conducive to learning French>>1103489considering healing a scab tired Herb out, I don't think he'll be anywhere near that even if he becomes a master.
>>1103535Neither is running around naked in a jungle but you seem to like her.She's actually traveled to the outside world. Where were the games held? Maybe she was in poke' france.
>>1103489its an alteration of a living system via an outside influence. And if the aura healing amounts to stimulation and boosting of the bodies own self-healing via addition of aura energy then it shouldn't be too hard to simply focus that energy on a specific spot like an organ. that said I doubt we'll do that sort of thing with herb anyway. Being able to heal our own pokemon (especially mace being volatile as he is) will be useful.
>>1103544>liking French in the first placeConsidering Keira can speak at least two languages(whatever Herb speaks and pokemon), I think that puts her ahead in the language departmentAnd we all know what happens at the Olympic village.
>>1103616Laki's a native as well so that puts two on her plate.
>>1103544So... Kalos?Laki and Keira and Polu are bro-tier.Val is growing on me. Hana is waifu tier.Jane depends on if she figures out that we've never been out to get her.
>>1103616>And we all know what happens at the Olympic village.If you read Laki's bin you'd know she was still a virgin.
>>1103651Only in her daydreams
>>1103616>And we all know what happens at the Olympic village.
>>1103651other holes don't count, in her opinion>>1103622that would mean Keira is at least trilingual. Man, looking even better now
>>1103612Since it looks like it can ease pain / discomfort I feel it wouldn't be too big of a stretch to use it as a way to calm down Pokemon that are angry, stressed, etc.. Would probably get a decent amount of mileage out of the ability too knowing how Herb is.
>>1103682We're gonna be the best at massages.
>>1102855Sauce or original pic please? It's for...research purposes....
>>1103907sorry anon, I didn't save the original and visit way too many site to remember where I found itI'll give you an apology butt of your choice, all of them will be SFWish though
>>1103931Ah nuts. May I humbly request some Olivia or Candela then?
>>1103398Laki is my number one but I still hold out hope for Hana or Kiera or all three to be be a part of it as well.Jane isn't even a contender.Valerie is nice and I'd love for Herb and her to be lifelong friends but stay at that kind of level.Polu is best bro.
I wonder if Laki picks up any spiritual powers.
>>1104071oh man that pic takes me back...
>>1104071Hopefully she at least gains some insight as to her recent behavior. I want to see her face those insecurities directly, rather than avoid them.
>>1104071I doubt it, she only drank half a cup. Hopefully she did some soul searching while she was on her trip, and realized that you can't just run away from your problems and hope they go away
hey gobble, I wonder before you go; can you do me a favor?post more often, I know you post a lot already but as I said it's like crack to me. I need to ask so thanks for even considering.
>>1104090>>1104120Hopefully she'll realize that she wants to fuck us.I find the idea of the priests observing that lewdbin to be humorous.
>>1104071Man, I miss that quest. Wish the QM would come back.
I've thought about waifus and such, so here's my viewpoint (which nobody asked for, but anyway...)Polu is someone I wouldn't mind at all. He's a massive bro, but a bromance without the b would be fun, too. Completely out of ranking.Keira seems like a fun option, bringing us deeper into the culture and offering great plot lines. A solid second place.Laki sounds like a great rehabilitation questline, although I'm not sure what else she might offer. But I trust Gobble with this. Not my style, but interesting. Valerie has gotten a lot more interesting after the last bit of plot we had with her. This relationship would be the one in which Herb could possibly be the 'mentor' most of the time, which would be rare in others. Got some potential, I would be okay with it. Hana is special. She's rich in facets, allowing for various interesting plotlines. Accepting her body the way it is, improving our healing magic to restore it... Also, she's fun whenever some innuendo comes along. Call me a thirteen-year old for liking this kind of humor, but I enjoy it. My number one for some weird reason. Jane... got more acceptable with time. I think she will be reasonably enjoyable if we keep her 'redemption' up. Honestly, I'm down with mostly everything. As long as it is human.
>>1104852I don't agree with your exact order, but I agree with all your reasons. We've got a really solid set of choices this time around.
>>1105143Same, it's very good listing.Personally I prefer Keira because the facepaint obsession is cute, and dating a priestess would lead to some fun stories and interactions with the native culture. Laki and Hana, despite being islanders, aren't nearly as "native" as Keira, having adopted a lot of customs from the mainland
>>1105222Hana seems like a mainlandaboo and Laki is warrior caste.
>>1105230not sure if they had a caste system, but pretty accurate.One thing that interests me is Laki's home island. From an anthropological perspective, it's extremely strange. Some island cultures have been matriarchal, but the males have always been the warrior sex. With how interconnected the islands are, just the one island becoming matriarchal should have never happened.Gobble is great at worldbuilding, so seeing how they handle it will be cool. Even better if we get a antimainlander leader waifu
>>1105276Villain Waifus are for noncanon lewdbins only.
>>1105284>not converting them with Big Mainlander Cock>not turning them into perfect mainland ladies
>>1105295Not saying I don't like it, but we got enough of a main cast now.
>>1105317Jane could have been it, if we let go down that path. Noncanon lewdbins will have to be enoughespecially if they have a happily ever after where they get married, settle down, and have cute half islander babies
>>1105295What if we just get Keira or Hana to dress up like a Team Aether grunt? It would be especially lewd for Keira, seeing as she wouldn't have any face paint on. We might even see her freckles.[/spoilers]
>>1105460too lewd anonShe'll only take off her facepaint after months of dating and sex in the nest she built
>>1105276>>1105295>>1105357Can we just have Courtney on vacation in Loanah and that be a route for Herb to embark on
>>1105609Courtney is not for HerbCourtneyxBrendan is OTP
>>1105230Wairriorfu a best.
I will not be able to participate in this thread as I will be watching the Royal Rumble with my mommy and daddy! I hope that everyone here will continue to put the best girl's interests ahead of all else!
>>1106994Okay, I will continue to vote for all the Keira interactions, just for you,
>>1106994OkayI never knew that bella was such a jane enthusiest
>>1106994Wait, are we talking about Hana or Val?
>>1107052Dunno. Best girl is so many girls. Anon really should have clarified a bit further.
>>1106994man, I can't believe that Bella has changed her mind so quickly. Good to know that she likes her new mom
[Alright! It'll be a really short one, but let's get this going!]
>>1107339LET'S GO ALL NIGHT!!
>>1107339Thanks for all your hard work Gobble!
>>1107339Still one of the highlights of my weekends
>>1107339Wasn't expecting this. Thanks for the surprise, Gobble!
>>1107339Well, looks like I'm on time today.
>>1107339Also, not to be pushy or anything, but whatever happened to that last lewdbin?
You cuddle your huge body pillow. She snuggles back and pulls you close.It’s finally, actually occurring to you that you don’t own a body pillow that snuggles. In fact, your don’t own one at all.The fog is clearing from your mind. You realize the pale brown blob in your face is Laki’s chest. Your towels are as big a mess as your heads right now. You try to scooch away before she comes out of it.You think you’re about to get loose when she puts you into an armlock.“Why don’t we get to exist?”It sounds like she’s still out of it. There’s an edge of anger and frustration in her voice, but just a little. Belladonna looks concerned, like maybe you’re not playing. You don’t want her to think there’s any trouble. Mace is out of it and Gobble is snoring. Dice is just sort of playing by himself by lazily flopping around.Her grip loosens a little.>Try to wake her up so she’ll let you go>Quickly jump out of her grip>Slowly sneak out of it>Accept it.

>>1107407>Accept it. This is your life now Hi gobble!
>>1107407>Answer her questionPeople don't always understand the weight of what they place on us. If it ever becomes so great that we no longer feel as though we exist as something more than their expectations, then we need to seek out people who are light enough to accept some of our burden so that we can find who we are again.
>>1107407>You only stop existing when you stop fighting for it.

As much as I enjoy wise man herb, I feel his mind would not be in the right place for long winded replies, especially whilst being restrained by someone so sexually intimidating.
>>1107492>>1107464>>1107407Fair enough. I'll condense it."You exist to me, Laki."We'll coax some more responses out of her.

>>1107503Yea seems good to me.
>Keira wonders in>Sees Herb and Laki in a loving embrace>runs out cryingI love it!
>>1107515She'd be more likely to ask to join in.
>>1107515She was already in the room watching us just a moment ago
>>1107519I think she'd be jealous and not fully understand why.
>>1107519she wouldn't ask, she'd just jump in there
>>1107407>>1107503I'll second this.

Gobble wasnt' lying, this was a really short one. Thread's over, see you guys next time.
>>1107605Gobble isn't kill until at least an hour after the post.
>>1107407Super late probably won't work.>Accept it. This is your life now>comfort her. assure her she exists.
You decide to accept it.“It’s fine.” You whisper to Bella. She lights up at your reassurance and goes back to trying to tickle Mace while he meditates. He looks annoyed but keeps doing what he’s doing.You try to look up to the face of the half naked, powerful girl holding you down. “It’s okay.” You huff out. Your voice is much deeper than you remember it. “You exist to me.”She spins you around. There’s not that much force to it because she’s slow, but she’s still very much in control. She’s straddling you now.“No! We do now but we won’t later. And there’s nothing that can stop it.” She pins your arms down. “But I know it, and that means I can at least keep some control over how it happens.” She huffs. Her heavy chest hangs over you. She holds you down like that for awhile. Any time you look like you’re adjusting or moving, she uses her pelvis and keeps you pinned. Nothing intentionally sexual happens, but your body sure assumes it will.Oh jeez oh man oh boy. You're horrified of moving even a little.Slowly, her glazed eyes turn more and more focused and sober. She starts to realize where she is and your current situation.“We didn’t-”“No!”She looks very concerned about ending up like this beyond her control, but she also has a bit of a shocked laugh and that aggressive glint in her eyes. "You didn't fight me off at all, did you? I bet-" She’s about to say something when the footsteps are heard at the door. She scrambles off you and secures her towel. You hitch yours up, too.“Herb.” The woman who had the disconnected voice speaks to you. “Come, the others wish to speak to you about your journey.”>Ask for some time get a clearer head.>Wait!

Laki had the same potential to become a priestess as Kiera. Ignored it in hopes of becoming first Athlete. Choked. Ouch.
So, what with the comment that we "called our self Herb even in our head, it got me wondering where that name came from. I was thinking that maybe it is our "man's name", granted to us when we turned 13 in some sort of barmitzfa-like tradition. Alternatively, it could have been a nickname that stuck with us from early childhood, perhaps to distinguish us from another, older John in our family. Does our father or grandfather have a canon first name?
>>1107767As someone who's had a nickname my younger brother gave to me stick with him for seventeen or so years, it wouldn't surprise me if sis or younger brother were the ones who bestowed it.
She looks impatient. Not with you in particular, but with something. She's tall and beautiful, with a full figure. Her robe is asymmetrical but simple, in contrast to the very complicated and elaborate headdress.“Okay.” You take your time moving to get up for obvious reasons. She tosses you your clothes. “All are naked to me, but I understand you mainlanders have your modesty.” She glances down. “I can see why. How barbarous. You may have a few minutes. Don't worry about Laki. We’ll have someone watch over her. I’m interested in her vision quest as well. I’m going to prepare myself a cup of tea. Be in the room at the end of the hall before it’s ready.”You quickly get dressed and head out with your pokemon. You were hoping for a few hours. You guess they want to talk to you before your inhibitions are back.Huh. You know they’re still gone right now, mostly, but you don’t care that much. Sure is chilly here outside the sauna.How are you going to spend these few minutes before they ask about your vision?>Ask the giggling girls about Rayquaza>Call someone on your pokedex for advice>Splash some water on your face and get your head clear>Fix your clothes and hair and everything else.

>>1107828Okay? I don't think we're in a situation where having Bella with us is going to change much and she might like to have reassuring company. sounds like a bad trip.
>>1107785Supporting this as well.>>1107817
>>1107842It didn't seem that bad if the first thing she did when coming out of it was start teasing us and Bella was the reason we fell into the snow and is a good example of our good character in general.
>>1107785Supporting asking bella to keep Laki company.
>>1107870She was worried about existing. And seemed troubled when she woke up.>Bella... is a good examplePoint taken.
>>1107885I'm not saying it wasn't bad but it doesn't seem so bad that she needs someone there right now or else she'll break. And she does have her own pokemon too
>>1107904It doesn't seem she's bonded to her own pokemon as much as Bella. Not their fault Bella is an angel.
>>1107817>>1107785I'll support Bella keeping Laki company.
>>1107908Well this would be the perfect chance for that
>>1107785>Splash some water on your face and get your head clear>Ask Bella to keep Laki company. She sounded... off.Makes sense. Besides, the priestess said to be in the room before the tea is ready. ETA, 3-5 minutes unless they need to wait for the hot water to get ready. Not much time to do much else.
>>1107914Eh. I stick with my original suggestion. Bella wouldn't detract from any time spent with her own. And she may not think to call out her uhh.. parrot thing. After gen one I get lost.
>>1107936>After gen one I get lost.oh god
>>1107953It's why the nicknames are helpful. I remember Nibbles the dinosaur. Loved his pokedex entry. Folly of man or some such. Oberon the dragon. Aria the.. thing. Trunks the stump.
>>1107972My dude, you're hurting my soul a bit.
>>1107936nah, Laki should bond with her pokemon. She said herself that she hasn't bonded with wailmer, and while now isn't the best time for a wailmer, she can bond with her meowth and chatot
Water flows on half open, wooden pipes along the walls in a lot of places. It pools in some areas and then continues on it’s way. You’ve seen a lot of people just wash their hands or drink from it, so figure it’s find to do the same.You splash the water on your face and shake your head. You even give yourself a few light slaps. You drank a lot. And while this helps, you’re still out of it.You find somewhere else to change and adjust your clothes. You know where all the creases and folds are and how to handle them. You change a few things to try to give yourself a better look, find a reflective surface, and nod in satisfaction. You look good. Loose. Cool.You go to that room the woman pointed out before. There are five people sitting cross legged, and two girls attending to them. They quickly make themselves scarce at your presence, and you’re motioned to sit.The five people presiding over your interview, or you guess you might call it an interrogation depending on how it goes, are the Ghost Priest, Keira, the woman with the headdress, the Grass Priest, and someone you assume is in a Fire priest type of roll, based on how he’s dressed. He has a robe similar to the others, but with flame patterns. His hair is wild and tall, probably held up with something. He has a necklace of huge beads.“You don’t see people coming out looking so good.” The Grass Priest says, filling the dimly lit room with a little more joy.“So, Herb. Describe your vision quest.”You describe it as best you can. You’re stopped right before the part where the thing you suspect was Rayquaza showed up.“My college from the psychic temple seemed to have some trouble after that point.” The Ghost Priest says. “An occasional hiccup with inexperienced leaders happens, from time to time. But would you please explain to us what you saw while she struggled with her duties?”You were hoping to avoid this so you didn’t have to lie.>Nothing you can remember.>Think about grandpa.>Describe your vision with Rayquaza, leave out what it showed you>You can’t say.

Is it really about him or his message?
>>1108057>He wants to show you something for now, but only if you promise to lie about it for now.He wanted us to lie about the something. If he meant himself entirely it's his fault for not being specific. He repeatedly stressed don't talk about "it"
>>1108057>He wants to show you something for now, but only if you promise to lie about it for now. To trust him in that he has a plan. You feel a great and terrible amount of ego and shame being suppressed as it asks you this favor.We aren't talking about the vision, just that something that looked like fug appeared.
>>1108042>>1108000>>1107994Nevermind. This is simpler.We even know a dragon we could base it off of. I forget the exact spelling of its name, but it was the one we fed in the cave. Keira can even back us up on that if people ask questions!

But lying/deceiving the circle of priests judging our visions seems both stupid and out-of-character.
Normally you’d have a lot of inhibitions about deceiving people, but right now you’re just cool with whatever. What would Grandpa say?“I saw this big dragon.” You start. They hang off your every word. You describe everything up until the vision. Instead of mentioning it, you talk about the pancakes. You go on about them. One of the best parts about staying at grandpa’s was waking up to pancakes. Even your sister and brother would all get along with them. You’d play games about who got which one, and cut faces into them, and-“Pancakes.” The Ghost priest says, incredibly unimpressed. “You had a vision of the great protector, and you fed it pancakes.” He turns to Keira.She’s looking at you funny. She’s reading your aura. “He’s not lying.”“I can’t see the memory.” The psychic woman says as your head tingles. “But he has familial memories associated with them.”“So, they remind him of family, then?” The Fire Priest says. “That gives this a new meaning. Not disrespect, but love and passion!”“That’s what I have to believe with the evidence we have.” She replies.“He loves to cook.” Keira chimes in. “He even made baco bread on his first try.”That seems to impress all but the Ghost Priest. He looks even less approving than before. “Moving on!”They ask about your vision with the spider and the butterfly. “Why did you help the spider?”>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.>You just thought it as the most logical choice>You respect the natural order of things>Something else
>>1108196>You just thought it as the most logical choice
>>1108196>Everyone feeds the butterflies. People should feed the spiders too, even if they're scary. It's not fair otherwise.
>>1108196>>You respect the natural order of thingsPrey gets consumed, predators die, life continues
>>1108196>You just thought it as the most logical choiceNow we all vote for why we voted
>>1108176We have no confirmation of why he nuked the island, and it stands to reason that he did it to stop either pokemon or people from fighting and destroying the islands(even more than he did).Breaking a promise to someone we made pancakes for is out of character too. He didn't want them to know about him, or else he wouldn't have blocked the psychic entirely. If he was fine with them seeing him, he would have only censored the bombardment
>>1108196>You respect the natural order of things
>>1108196>You respect the natural order of things>"The spider wasn't doing anything wrong, everything needs to eat to live"

>>1108196>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.Just because you are bad guy, does not mean you are "bad guy"
>>1108196>>You respect the natural order of things
>>1108196>>You respect the natural order of thingshnnng hi gobble
>>1108196>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.We wanted to help both, but there was no way to aid both.
>>1108196>>You just thought it as the most logical choice
>>1108196>>You respect the natural order of things and it seemed the most logical choice at that moment
>>1108196>You respect the natural order of things.Spiders deserve to be appreciated. They help out far more with keeping other insects in line than butterflies do with their minimal and abyssmal attempts at pollination compared to the superior bee.
>>1108196>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.Not sure if I'd call it affinity, though. Maybe an affection? You can't really change their nature, but we can redirect it given time and trust. We're simple enough for that to work.
>>1108196Ghost Priests is a real bitch ain't she.Well yall know what that means, add her to the list boys.
>>1108196>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.I feel like saying we respect the natural order will have the priests bitch at us about the snow and shit.

>>1108233Herb's gonna become a conquistador at this point
>>1108196>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.The dragon.
>>1108196>Something elseThe spider was gonna starve, I wanted to help it!
>>1108237>>1108238>>1108249oh fuck what have i done
You know we have made friends with sharks, a dragon, and a crow. Maybe there is something to this affinity for predators.
>>1108257We also made friends with plenty of non predators.
>>1108196>you have an affinity for predators
>>1108270Yeah but these are ones we didn't catch but it was implied they will be back at some point
>>1108257Yeah,thats why i chose itThat and it adds more depth and ways to connect with pokemon
>>1108257Funny thing is that we're definitely prey. We may be badass at times, but we basically have nothing in common with many of the pokemon we attempt to befriend.We're weird.
>>1108291That's kind of the reason why I think the predator affiinity thing makes no sense.Herb might respect them, but he has no real common ground with them.
>>1108291And youre figuring this out now?
>>1108291Eh, to me we're prey the same way elk or other large herb's are prey. Badass if you aren't careful, and only the more dangerous of pred's are any real threat. Besides, you only takes some good stomps/kicks to the ribs or horn gore to persuade them to carry on and mind their own.>see BarracudaJane and MountainLionLaki for further reading.
