General 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.

Gobble (Munchlax)
Mace (Roggenrola)

You decide to train Dice. After all, he’s the newest member of the group and probably the most in need of some extra help.

Your head is still twirling from that tea. You went in pretty deep. You feel like you’re in a unique headspace right now, and whatever ideas you come up with, it won’t be like a regular training session.

You and your pokemon relax outside of the temple in an open area that doesn’t seem particularly special. You saw people running around here before and playing with pokemon, so it seems fine to train here. You’ve been trying to figure out if you want to train Dice or Mace. You decide on Dice first, and Mace if there’s time. You don’t want to neglect anybody.

You ask Mace and Gobble to keep an eye on Bella. Mace gives what looks like his best imitation of a salute. Gobble looks up long enough from digging in his fur for food to nod, then goes back to it.

Dice, who was just running in a circle with his arms out, comes to a sto looks up at you with an empty expression. He’s sort of a blank slate, isn’t he?

Dice seems like a swell pokemon, but you’ve noticed he’s really oblivious to the things around him. He doesn’t seem to dedicate a lot of mental energy to paying attention.

“Alright, Dice, we need to work on your situational awareness.”

He gives you another blank look.

“Let’s start with something easy. How many pokemon, besides yourself, are in this field?”

There’s Belladonna, Mace, and Gobble. He notices Mace rolling around, then to Belladonna, then to Gobble, then back to Mace. There are two bird pokemon on the other side of the field just hopping around and not doing much. That’s five total.

Gobble burps and Dice excitedly points.

“That’s nice, but how many? No looking back.”

He holds makes four noises, indicating four pokemon. From his face you can tell it’s a guess.

“Not quite.”

This will take some work. Maybe you can get a specialized exercise.

[There are no rules against giving a pokemon a fermented berry, although people would question why you'd do that. As long as you're not going so crazy with it that you cause liver damage (which would take so much that you'd practically have to do it intentionally) nobody will care besides thinking you have no sense of smell or something.

On that note, give me some rolls for initial success!]

There’s just something about his brain that engages more when he’s bobbing and weaving around. It’s not an intuitive solution, but your own mind isn’t in it’s usual intuitive state.

You let your body wave around a little like plant in the wind. Dice, intrigues, follows your lead.

“Yeah, just like that.”

He’s having fun. He likes this strange game. You step it up by leaning back but stepping forward. Your upper body weight nearly makes you fall backwards, but you focus that momentum into swinging it back around instead. Suddenly, you’re able to reach out and poke him playfully on the snoot. He looks surprised and delighted, and imitates the move.

Except when he does it, he uses the weight of his tail a lot to swing himself around in reaction to what you do. As you move around, you ask him things like if the rock behing him is bigger or smaller than Gobble, or if there are any clouds above you guys, or if anyone is wearing red when people walk by. Just anything you happen to notice that makes a good question. He gets a few right without having to check, but you think he’ll need some more training. Still, it’s a start to something unique, and potentially helpful.

“Alright. Good job, Dice. Let’s take a break.”

He runs off and bites Bella gently as she sunbathes. She leaps up in surprise and he chases her around. She’s half upset, half laughing.

Mace seems to be paying a lot of attention to what you’re doing. He keeps a lookout, or an ear out, or whatever you want to call it, to Belladonna to make sure she doesn’t get into any trouble, but he also faces you. He’s never had any problems with paying attention at all.

You glance over to the temple exit. Keira comes out and waves. When she gets closer, she tells you that some of the others wanted to talk to Laki some more so it’ll be a while longer.

Probably for the best. You feel like Mace could use some special attention

You know what I like most about you as a QM, Gobble? Your willingness to let people run with fun ideas they have on a whim, if it makes sense.

No one could have predicted drunken fist gator, but it got proposed, had interest, and it was a choice on the next vote, and you made it work. It makes it feel more like a fun whim Herb had, too, with the way you do it.

You're good at this. That's what I'm saying. Also, Dice is the most adorable.

You sit down beside him and scratch on his head the way Hana did before, but without the vibrations. He doesn’t like it as much, but he appreciates the gesture.

“How are you doing, buddy?”

He sighs.

“I know you had a setback before, and something went on with that Boldore friend of yours. But no matter what happens, I’m here for you, okay? Not just as a trainer, but as a friend.”

He perks up. He’s about to snuggle into you when Bella and Dice run by. Then he goes back to looking stoic.

“I get it. I don’t like to look vulnerable in front of other people either.” You think about how people always comment on you being scrawny, or that time you cried in front of kids at school.

He very subtle snuggles into your hand as Keira sits by you.

“I’m going to guess something, but if I’m wrong, let me know, okay? I think you’ve been thinking about evolution lately.”

He glances up, then nods.

“Is it something you want to do because of what happened?”

He sighs again, then starts making noises. Keira translates. She says how he thought evolution changes you, and it does, but his Boldore friend changed for the better. He used to be a bully and a jerk.

“So you think if you evolve, you might become better?”

He nods. He doesn’t feel like he’s very good right now.

“You are good, Mace. Even the best have setbacks. That’s why we need to train hard.”

He looks fired up.

“Ready?”

He leaps up.

“Let’s do this!”

You do a quick warm up first, then have him work on precision control. He whooshes out the energy like a gust of wind at first, but he very quickly starts getting the hang of it again. You hold up a leaf and he focuses little beams along the stem. Keira even helps him learn a few symbols in Loanah and he carves those into things, too.

He leaps up and fires three beams at the same leaf. It’s like a proto tri-attack. He’s really got his confidence back.

“Great job!” You pat him on the back. “How are you feeling? Do you want a new Macho Brace?”

He shakes his head. He doesn’t want it as a crutch anymore. He’s still got a long way to go, and he knows it, but he’s going to learn to handle it himself.

Laki comes out of the temple building now. She looks exhausted, but she turns a little self-conscious and almost bashful when she greats the two of you.

“Keira. Soft Hands. I just got a call from Valerie. Her and Hana will be sailing the yacht by tomorrow. They might stop in the dock if there’s time.”

I'm imagining Mace as a rune master now...

I wonder if mace could use his precision beams to etch ring targets and such into the opponent? Like, it'd be a welt or anime-esque scorch mark. Makes me wonder what other sorts of tags there are...

You decide to walk and talk. You feel like seeing more. And Keira looks eager to show you. She hops around.

“Okay! Now that you can come up the mountain a bit, we can see the Holy Wood Path, then the Ice Flow Dip, then Traitor Lookout! Oh, it looks so nice from there!”

She jumps ahead of you, Laki, and all your pokemon. Laki’s Chatot flies to catch up with her.

“So...”

“So.” She says flatly.

“That spirit quest huh? Sure makes people act strange.”

She looks like she’s going to put you in a headlock, but stops. “Yeah. I don’t really remember it.”

You think she’s telling the truth. But then again, you’re not really good at knowing.

“So how was your interview?”

She keeps her eyes ahead. “Well, you know. They couldn’t tell if my vision was just my psyche, or a prophecy.”

“A prophecy?”

“I don’t want to make a big deal out of it. t happens sometimes. It’s all vague and up to interpretation. Don’t worry about it.” She picks up Bella instead of continuing to talk.

She doesn’t seem like she wants to talk about it.

You want to ask Keira about prophecies, but first, you should talk to Laki.

“I made pancakes in mine.”

She tries holding back a laugh, but only manages it for a second before bursting into a loud one right from the gut. She has to put Bella down to hold her sides.

“That’s the most Soft Hands thing I’ve ever heard.” She wipes a tear from her eye. “Ahh. Crap. Pancakes don’t mean anything special to you, do they?” She realizes she might be trampling on something.

“A bit, but that’s okay. What’d you see?” You push. At least, you push as hard as you can, given that you’re you and all. “I mean, if you don’t want to talk about it, I understand, but you seemed really-”

“Yeah. Yeah. I guess. Keira already knows all about it, so you might as well too.” She stretches. “Just don’t take it personally, okay? And if you tell anyone, I’ll give Keira some work to do, understand?”

You gulp and nod.

“I saw something I’ve been thinking about ever since the games. The future of the island. The islands changed into a smaller version of the mainland.”

“Oh, what does that mean?”

“It means Loanah won’t exist in the future. Not the way it does now. Mainlanders will keep coming in bigger numbers and bring their money and culture and all their children and we’ll be strangers in our own homeland. It won’t happen tomorrow, or a decade from now. But in a few generations, that’s where we’ll be. Because of people like your family.”

“But we don’t want-”

“Yeah. I know. And you’re a nice guy, Soft Hands. Really nice. That Jacob guy, you, and probably Val and others like you want to learn and you follow our customs, mostly. But It’s not just you. And even if nobody came here, I’ve seen what all the media and everything else does. That’s just how the world is now. We always kept our numbers down to make sure there were enough resources for everyone. We’re going to get washed away by the dominant power. That’s just nature. The strong dominate the weak.”

You always took Laki as a bit short-sighted and rash, but she’s thinking really far into the future.

“So they wanted to know if your vision was something that was bothering you, or a prophecy of the future?”

She nods, then picks Belladonna up again. "It's nothing personal."

She didn't actually see how the people changed, right? Didn't see if they were like us, or something new entirely. That's an important part to overlook.

People will change in response to new ideas and cultures. It cuts every way, meaning that if Loanah disappears it won't vanish without changing the mainland as well. That's the way of things, too.

>That’s generations from now. Lots can change from now until then

>>1129517

>If your people hold true to their culture and traditions, then won't it be possible for the Loanan culture to survive contact with the mainland?
It's not like the mainland is actively antagonistic toward their culture; the danger here is in the future generations choosing freely to forego their own culture in favor of the mainland's.
>>
>>1129575
not sure reservations are a good outcome

biggest problem with culture is how it shifts over time, and there's really nothing we can do to stop mainlanders from moving to the islands. Best possible outcome is mainlanders get accepted into the native culture and integrate. Ironically, the antimainlander gang will cause the destruction of their culture by having the mainlanders never integrate and maintain their mainland culture on the island while they grow in numbers
>>
“That’s generations from now. Lot’s of things could change from now until then.”

“Maybe. But we have a saying. A tree planted today is a forest tomorrow.”

“And it goes two ways. There are lots of cultures on the mainland. And they all interact and mix. Maybe Loanah culture will spread.”

“We don’t exactly have a lot of books or television stations here. But thanks.” She tousles your hair. “Maybe you’re on to something, though.” She plays with your hair some more. “And there are a few things from the mainland I wouldn’t mind more of.” She laughs. “Oh yeah. Did Val talk about me before when you two camped together?”

You walk and chat a little longer. She seems to be in much better spirits. You’re on a roll today! It makes you feel great.

You go catch up with Keira and ask her about prophecies.

“You know about Laki’s vision?” She asks. She quickly covers her mouth. “I mean. Oh shoot. Pretend I didn’t say anything, okay?”

“It’s okay. She told me.”

“Oh thank the ancestors. I’m supposed to keep it confidential. Lots of personal stuff gets revealed.” Keira relaxes. “Prophecies can happen during vision quests too. It’s really rare and it can come to anyone, and it’s a really great honor. Our ancestors on the other side of the veil can see things that haven’t happened yet, and that’s how they let us know. It can be a warning, or help us decide if we’re at a crossroads about something, or just good news like a special person being born.”

Now the two of you chat for a bit, too. She points out different things she likes about the path, then the ice flow dip, which is a point in the river where the ice melts and large chunks flow down.

She stops. “Oh. It’s growing season. I almost forgot.” She points down a few ways you can go. There’s the main path, which just takes you to where you’re going, the path with lots of bushes with berries and things, and the very rarely walked one with rare pokemon.

>>1129792

Her flames would be helpful for cooking
>>
>>1129792
I'm hoping for a female Snorunt, but an A-Vulpix would be nice too
>>
>>1129792
People voted against even meeting an A Vulpix last time we had a chance. Apparently people some of the Anons don't like that mon. Personally I wanted to at least meet the cutie, but such is life.
>>
>>1129745
>Berries? Let’s go that way
>>
>>1129806
A. Vulpix is an Ice type that also gets Fairy moves.
>>
>>1129810
Froslass would indeed be my pick for an ice type. We just got our gator friend, though. We don't need a fifth right now.
>>
>>1129816
ah ok my bad i misread as 'a vulpix' not aloha vulpix

Though Ice w/ Fairy is awesome as well
>>
>>1129818
yeah, but there aren't a lot of places to get ice types

We've already getting close to a full team, and I don't really want us to get more than 8 at max
>>
>>1129810
I'd be happy with either.
>>
>>1129818
Ghost would be nice, but it's a much lower priority than Fairy. That's why A. Ninetails would be p good, that sweet Ice/Fairy typing.
>>
>>1129816
A. Vulpix would be very nice, but yeah we should wait a little while to train and enjoy the pokemon we've got right now.
>>
>>1129825
[Ice pokemon can be found on any mountain in the region, and the islands are actually full of them, despite the lack of snow on the map]
>>
>>1129816
It's an Ice+Fairy type

not just an Ice with fairy moves

>>1129818
I'd really like a Mismagius for the ghost coverage. It learns cool support moves and unique attack moves
>>
>>1129825
Good point. I agree, but I'm sure we'll have a chance to get some more ice types later. Presumably there'll be an ice temple.

Where were all you guys like 2 threads ago when we saw one of those things on the path?
>>
>>1129745
>We don’t exactly have a lot of books or television stations here.
Well maybe that could be a good way of preserving the culture.
Going around and gathering up old legends and stories and getting them published
>>
>>1129810
I prefer standard Vulpix.
>>
>>1129825
>8 at max
I think most people are good with 6, I think that's the popular thought anyway.

I think another egg would be cool.

A. Vulpix is just Ice for it's type, it's the A. Ninetails that is Ice/Fairy typing. So you aren't right, but you aren't wrong either. I also think that Mismagius would be a cool mon. But I agree with most anons in that it's still a little too soon to catch another mon. We'll see tho

“Berries?” You ask. Gobble immediately perks up. “Can we go that way?”

“Okay!” She clasps her hands together excitedly. “Oh, they’re so good this time of year.”

You wave Laki over and you all head down into the brush to find some berries.

“There’s a ring around this area that makes the perfect conditions for them. It’s just cool and just warm enough. We’ll find lots! We should split up to look for them.”

And so you do. It’s a small enough area and you all agree on a spot to meet up by a really tall tree in case you get lost.

You search around and find a few berries, but you find you’re really not all that good at it.

You’re about to check out how your pokemon are doing when you step onto a chunk of ice that was in a shaded area. It comes loose and you slide down the hill. Luckily, you don’t go too far. The brush turns into a clearing very quickly.

Unfortunately, you fall very ungracefully and get covered in mud and dirt.

“Are you okay?” Someone riding a block of ice on the small river near by hops off and comes over. Looks like someone Laki’s age, or maybe a little older. “Hey, you’re a mainlander.” He helps you up. “Explains the clumsiness. So, are you lost, or what?”

“No, but thanks.” You look up the hill. You can still see where the really tall tree is. “What are you doing?”

“Ice riding. You’ve never done it?” He hops onto another chunk of ice on the stream. You look down the range and see this one feeds directly into the ocean without anyone being where you’d drink from it. They must only care about snow and ice in certain parts.

You see Laki and Keira coming out of the brush towards you. You must have made some noise on the way down.

“So you ride the ice on the river?”

“You catch on quick.” You detect a hint of sarcasm. He’s being loud enough that the girls can hear. “It’s a sport. You race someone else down and try not to fall in. It’s more of a grown man’s thing. You wouldn’t be interested.”

“Oh. Well, thanks for explaining it. Have fun.” You brush yourself off. You still feel a bit embarrassed by your clumsy entry and appearance, but there’s nothing you can do about that right now.

“Okay, kiddo. You too.” Even you get a bit annoyed by his tone. But you let it go.

You catch up with Keira and Laki.

“I would have punched that jerk out if I were you.” Laki says. “You start letting people walk all over you, and they never stop.”

“Laki! This is an island of peace!”

Laki holds her hand up. “Right. Sorry. I’d invite him out to a boat and kick his ass there.”

“You’re missing the point.” Keira says, half admonishing, half giggling. “Herb, you did the right thing. There’s nothing manly about defending your honor with violence.”

She’s sincere, but that still stings. Maybe you’re just oversensitive and reading too much into it. Laki called you a secret badass before, after all/

You go back to picking berries. Keira even finds different plants and root vegetables she says make great foods. You’re excited to cook things you’ve never tried before.

You gather everything up and head for the lookout before it gets dark. You cook up a few things, feed everybody, and relax.

“Remember, I want a massage before you go to sleep.” Laki says as she picks food out of her teeth.”

You actually have a lot you want to do before bed. But hey, you’re full of energy at the moment. It’s been a crazy day.

“Okay. I’ll give you a massage in a bit.” You tell Laki. “I guess you’re expecting one too, huh?” You half joke to Keira.

“I don’t want to cause any trouble.” Keira says a little shyly.

Laki coughs.

“But okay! Nobody from the temple is around so it’s okay, right? I mean, it would be anyway because that’s a judgement I can make on my own, but sometimes other clergy don’t understand, and-”

“She says yes.” Laki yawns. “Don’t take too long.

You grab your pokedex and sit somewhere out of earshot. You call Valerie. The reception is better than you expected.

“Herb! Perfect timing. I just got settled in for the night. Hana did me hair. You should see it! She’s really great with her hands.” Her voice tapers off and she sounds a bit awkward. “Anyway, have you thought of a good challenge? I think I’m getting that same fire that trainers talk about when they’re excited for a battle.”

She sounds fired up. You have a feeling that she’ll suggest something for you that’s proportional to what you dare her to do.

What’s a good challenge to make her more outgoing and daring?

You challenge her to tell Hana something really personal.

“Oh. That’s hard. I know just the thing, though. Oh my I feel overwrought already. This is perfect.”

“What should I do?”

“Hmm. Well. I have the feeling you’re quite open with everyone already. I think you should disagree with someone’s opinion, and not back down.”

“Laki?”

“That’s who I was thinking of. She has a lot of strong opinions, and I’m sure she says things you don’t always agree with. You tend to sidestep or avoid conflict, but I think you need to stand your ground. It doesn’t have to be her though. But next time someone says something you don’t think is right, I want you to stand your ground loudly and proudly.”

That’s horrifying. You’re okay with saying you think otherwise, but if someone feels strongly about something you tend to just sort of let it go and move onto something else to keep the peace.

You stop scratching Gobble behind the ears and get up and stretch. Time to massage Laki.

“Took long enough, Soft Hands.” She teases. She’s not actually upset. She’s laying on the ground without a top on.

You lotion up your hands and get to work. “Where’s Keira?”

“She’s washing her face. She’ll be back in a bit.” Her voice trails off into a soft, satisfied murmur as you work on her back muscles.

Oh jeez.

“Something change with your hands, Soft Hands? They’re warm, or something.” She relaxes even more. You don’t think she’ll care if you don’t answer.

Oh that’s right. You had a weird trip where you had healing powers or something in your dream. That’s crazy though, right?

“Do you think I’m masculine?”

She opens her eye. There’s a long silence. “Do you?”

You work a knot. “Do I think I’m masculine? I don’t know...”

“There’s your answer.” That stings a little, but you know she’s trying to teach you something. “Some people are deluded, but for the most part, if you carry yourself a certain way, and you’re always honest to yourself, then that’s all that matters. Of course, you can be seen as masculine by just being strong and taking what you want, like cute little blondes.”

You switch to another knot. “Do...do you like Valerie?”

“Yeah. She’s alright. A bit bubbly, and she doesn’t really know much outside of her rich little bubble, but she’s nice.”

Oh man this is awkward. “No, I mean-”

“I know what you mean, Soft Hands. No, I don’t have a crush on her. But I am going to nail her.”

You freeze. “W-wha-”

“Offer’s already out there. Just a matter of time. She knows I don’t want a relationship. She knows what her body wants. And I want her body.” She turns her head and opens her eyes. “Taking what you want is what my people are all about.”

Oh Jeez. Wow. Okay. Huh. The half naked girl you’re massaging just told you she’s going to do things with the beautiful rich Valerie. And she’s so confident about it.

You need to get your mind off of this before you embarrass yourself. You focus on something else. “Where did you get that cut?” You gently poke it.

She flinches “Hmm? Didn’t notice it before. Probably from the brush.”

You put a hand on it. You close your eyes and concentrate. You imagine it sewing up and healing over.

It’s gone.

You know, this might be an opportunity for our challenge. We could very well make the argument that Laki will not nail Val, as she likely wants to be romanced.

“It’s like I was saying, Soft Hands. In this world you loudly and proudly go for what you want. Even if you can’t take it, people will respect you for trying and being honest about it.” She smirks “Why are you so interested in my love life anyway?”

You’re not really paying attention to what she’s saying. You’re staring at your hands. “AHHH!” You leap back and look at your hands.

“What! What is it?” She pushes herself up, wraps the towel around her chest, and looks around.

“Laki... Can people in Loanah heal things with their hands?”

She raises an eyebrow. She looks more confused than anything.

“Oh! Wonderful!” You turn to see Keira in a mask. “Yes. Some can. It’s a gift that comes from meditation and aura training. I’ve never heard about a mainlander with it before.”

“Wait. Wait wait wait.” Laki says as she tries to bring her arm up so she can see where the cut was. “Wait.”

“I can see it in your aura, Herb. You just healed someone.”

Laki fingers around the site of her former cut. “Holy-”

“Well, some clergy think of all healing as holy, but it’s more about the act of giving. It’s a really interesting theological debate.”

“I can heal, for real!” You finally say something.

Keira looks confused. “You just did.”

You sit down. You wonder what mom and dad are going to say.

[That's it for tonight. I have to study tomorrow, but we'll still be running. And then some more during the week. Sorry I've been so far behind on lewdbins.

Good luck studying!

I'm wondering how common "powers" in general are.

There seem to be a lot of highly visible psychics among gym leaders, and the gym trainers below them seem to be pretty commonly psychic.

Then there's aura, which has everything from blasts to readings to healing to Jeneane's "aura massage" ( which I really want Herb to learn by the way!)

All pokemon are basically magic, but communicating with them might be another aura power? But trainers that bond with their pokemon real well seem to pick it up in a narrower form.

And with the weird disparate tech levels (candles but also teleportation?!) I wouldn't be surprised if some savant scientists basically qualified as superpower level smart.

Let's see. There's also hex-maniacs and fairy girls, who seem to have something supernatural going on with them.

Then there's niche things like those that can tell what hidden power type a pokemon can have, or move deleters, etc. etc.

I wouldn't be surprised if having powers was pretty common. If I were a scientist in-setting, I'd probably be pretty obsessed with crafting a unified theory of human paranormal abilities.
>>
>>1131076
Thanks for running, Gobble.

Also, for those who are interested in lewdbins, I've been talking with Gobble about the special lewdbin I offered to write for her, and thus far I've been given two pieces of information on what she wants in it. I could use some suggestions for how to develop them and anything else you guys might want, since it's for you guys, too.

The two things Gobble has requested for this lewdbin are as follows: a crossover between Herb and Kat, and Hana with her vibrating arm.
>>
>>1131163
>Herb and Kat
Mature Milfy Kat or quest Kat?

Because right now Kat is probably super Ara Ara~
>>
>>1131163
Herb being taught by Kat on how to properly satisfy a women, with Hana as the willing "test subject".
Maybe even some PoV switches to Robin and Clair as they "check in" using Clair's psychic powers.
>>
>>1131191
If Hana's arm was made by Robins company I bet Kat know all the special features it has.

Kat must tease Hana
>>
>>1131191
That'sa solid point. It's not usually my thing, but I could work with that. My first thought was Kat guiding Herb and Hana through their sexytimes, and an older Kat would work well for that.
>>
>>1131163
Hana masturbates to a fantasy of Herb being seduced by the famous Viscountess(if I'm remembering correctly) that she had seen so many times on tv. It even makes it semi-canon.

Well I have opinions.

For the arm, I'd like something set after meeting Hana in thread 1. A quick jaunt through several kinky scenarios during a masturbatory session would be nice. Being dommed by Jane, then pneumatically riding Polu, then sensually embracing Herb, etc, as she fantasizes about all these sexy new friends. Bonus if she gets off to the idea that we know her preferred masturbatory style.

As for crossover... I'm less certain. I'd like it set up so there's no significant age difference, using the characters basically as we knew them during their runs. Maybe a "what if Kat were born later, and was adopted by a loanan?" and we skip partway into her journey with Herb where she seduces him. If you'd like to cater very specifically to me, include any number of the following ways kat might seduce Herb: Kabedon, lip-biting, pulling down her neckline with one finger, whispering in the ear, getting him alone in the woods, and hip-wiggles in shorts.

Of course, the hottest part of a seduction is when the seducer allows themselves to become emotionally vulnerable and asks honestly for physical affection.

Honestly, Herb and Kat have such strong personalities and the chemistry seems obvious, since Herb is starting off a bit like Robin after all. I want to see Herb be Katnip.

>>1131241

So, I like a lot of these ideas, so combining them seems like a good way to go.

I like the idea of the whole thing really being a masturbation fantasy of Hana's, and I like the idea of her mentally placing Kat in her fantasy with Herb. On a personal note, Hana getting off on Herb knowing her preferred masturbation method is also very good for me. Does that all sound good to you guys?

Kat being older might work, but Hana imagining her younger could work too. That's the part I'm least sure about. What would you guys prefer on that front?

>>1131277
I would really like Ara ara Kat but if you feel you can right normal kat better go for it

>>1131277

>>1131277
I prefer normal Kat. I always imagined her as Hilda, so it makes for clear visuals for me. I don't have a very good picture of milf Kat in my head. If it's all fantasy though, I can see Hana trying out both situations.

I would like to reiterate that dialogue is important to me, internal or otherwise. Throwing in a line here or there about jow into it the characters are does a lot for me.
>>
>>1131305
>I don't have a very good picture of milf Kat in my head
Hilda's mom?
>>
>>1131287

I'm confident I can write ara ara Kat just fine. Age differences like this are just something I don't typically go for, but I'm not against it of that's what you guys want.

>>1131305

That makes sense too, yeah. And the characters really being into it is something I definitely want to highlight l. I'm a vanillafag at heart, and my biggest turn-on is people being happy and comfortable during sex.

It makes sense for the Pokemon setting because it's Japanese.

Shintoism has pretty much bred into them a baseline culture of accepting minor supernatural shit.

In the western tradition we relate most of our supernatural shit to straight up God, but in theirs there are fucktons of nature gods and all kinds of bizarre shit can happen for no real rhyme or reason.

Now that I'm no longer sleepy and coherent I can totally see that Laki could want Herb to be more assertive. Feels like even if she rejects him she'd probably respect Herb more. Though I really really don't want her to reject him.

She did say she doesn't want a relationship right now. Hopefully Herb can change her mind.
>>
>>1132291
This seems like a good idea, Val is sort of a sheltered main-lander without much experience in physical relationships, to Laki it may not seem like a big deal but she could do real damage if she just goes in (when Val is willing) and doesn't bother with after care. Val is our friend and I for one want to protect her smile.
>>
So, here's what I think we should disagree with Laki on, being masculine doesn't mean taking what you want, it's about protecting the ones you care About. Its About responsibility and doing your best for your friends, family, and community.
>>
>>1132291
>>1132496
We could work these together, I think.

We need to assert dominance and tell Laki she is Herb's. We will not have an open marriage, especially when they have a child!

Hmm... I've been thinking about this "Strength is taking what you want" thing, and decided how I feel about it. Maybe Herb would feel similar.

I think that taking what you want doesn't work when other people are involved, because then you have to ask for what you want. I think that like how bravery is overcoming your fear, strength as a person is when you conquer your weakness.

When I feel hurt, I want to give up or say something hurtful back or pretend it didn't happen, instead of trying again or being forgiving. When I do what I want instead of what I think is important or right is when I'm a weak person. When I do what I should instead of what I want is when I feel strong.

If wanting to sleep with a cute girl was all Val's only thought on the matter, She would have done so already. Maybe she needs to feel trusted or romanced. I don't know for certain. But she hasn't, so she probably has other priorities.

That's why when people give into temptation, they say they're weak. Because strength is conquering yourself.

>I think that like how bravery is overcoming your fear, strength as a person is when you conquer your weakness.
Herb needs to use this line to Laki.

Also, I think taking what he wants is impossible for Herb, since what he wants is to give.

Although I would like an AU bin for every girl we don't get to Bone Rush.
>>
>>1133083
Let's try and string them together.

General thrust of the counterargument to "taking what you want is strength" is overcoming your own weaknesses and protecting others.

So, start with arguing that Laki isn't showing her strength or even assertiveness by hooking up with Val. We know she's not interested in a relationship. We can reasonably guess that that is a lie, and she's just telling herself that because she doesn't want to commit to something and get burned again when if it fails in spectacular fashion. Knowing her past, we can reasonably see her taking Val as a one-off fuck buddy without consideration for feelings or romance is a sign of Laki's personal weakness. We've inverted her logic now - taking something can be seen as a sign of weakness.

Now, we could tell Laki at this point that if we were more like Jane, we could really hurt Laki right now. We know enough about her sensitivities that we could use this opening to further exploit them and validate her worst fears about forming a relationship with someone. But she knows we're better than that. We build people up, not tear them down. And if we're calling Laki out on her shit it's because it really *is* shit that she's holding onto and we're willing to push our bond to try and help her help herself. Because if she didn't believe that we were exactly who we said we were, she'd walk off in a heartbeat and never let us into her life again.

So, moral of the story - there's far more to strength than simply taking things, and that's where our strength is going to lie because taking without giving back is *never* going to be how we or our friends walk through this world. Not on our watch.
>>
>>1133392
Fucking do it.
>>
>>1133392
Actually, I'll add to part of this.

If she didn't believe that we were exactly who we said we were, she'd walk off in a heartbeat and never let us into her life again. And if we didn't believe that she wasn't better than what she thinks she is, we wouldn't be having this conversation with her. We'd just warn Val off from dealing with Laki because we won't let one of our friends give away something she cares about to someone who ultimately didn't give a shit about what they were getting.
>>
>>1133462
>didn't believe she wasn't better
*was better. Tripped up on on keeping track of my negatives there.
>>
>>1133472
Oh, and to really, really sell it at the end when she's speechless.

"Did I do good, Laki?"

If she doesn't start cracking up at Herb wrapping back around from man with a spine of steel into his everyday self then she is officially worst girl.
>>
>>1133392
I think that combining the two would work best by explaining that taking care of others means putting what others want above what you want.

I don't think that speculating at Laki's inner life will do us much good. Herb doesn't know everything that we do, and any sort of direct approach will be met with resistance if it's not 100% dead on.

Better to keep the scope of our discussion to our own views of strength and maybe Val. If our views make sense, Laki will probably give them consideration.

The important thing is we stand our argumentative ground.
>>
>>1133511
I'd argue to the contrary. The direct approach definitely carries risks and relies on assumptions that Herb may not be entirely comfortable with, but it's also the approach Laki herself is most familiar with and we know how she'll respond - directly and vocally.

Part of this is designed to have her push back on us and refute our assertions. If we're right, we're right. If she can't open up on what her issues really are, then our argument would go unchallenged and we win the argument, something that would burn Laki up bad given her competitive nature. If she does and some of our assumptions were wrong, then we've learned something about her IC. That's still a win, honestly.

It's almost the same thing she's doing to Val, where we know that, given time and the right moves, we can get Laki to give us something (her inner thoughts and demons) without needing to take it directly.

If she proves that analysis wrong, good. We each get to see the other where the other stands on something that matters to them, and we know that the bond between us is strong enough to survive a direct confrontation like this.

Alternately, she does blow up at us and storm off. But I still think we'd get something useful out of it and we'd get an arc where we have to patch things up with a good friend. Much as it sucks, it does happen, and I think Herb anons in general, really would put in effort to fix that bond.
>>
>>1133601
I'm not one to be risky or pushy, though when I get outvoted on such things it tends to work out fine. I am, however, resolute that telling people how they feel is a bad argumentative device. I'd rather we made our case as best we can and trust her to apply it to her own life.

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.

I like the general thrust of the first two suggestions, but i think Anon is right. No matter of the validity of such a comment I don't think telling someone how they feel is ever as strong of a device in an argument as the person using it thinks it will be. Cause often times the person will rationalize if you are right or be completely angered if you are off. So neither gets them to the head space you want.

Keira spends some time assuring you it’s nothing to worry about.

“Vision quests can give people a new direction in life, reveal prophecies, or help the, understand a part of themselves they didn’t notice before. Some people just have those sorts of abilities.”

“Really? That sounds so strange.”

Keira turns to Mace. “Do you think it’s strange?”

Mace makes a noise.

“He says you’re being dense.”

Mace makes an objecting noise. Keira bursts into laughter.

“Okay. That’s not what he said.” She keeps laughing. “I couldn’t resist. Because he’s a rock, and you’ve seen me talk to pokemon, and...” Her laughter tapers off as she realizes explaining the joke ruins it.

“So, what happens now?”

Keira shrugs. “Massages?”

Laki lays back down and gets settled in again. “Sounds like a plan to me, I guess.”

You ask as you work down Laki’s legs. You avoid going too high. You’re not sure where the limit is, or if there is one.

“Umm. Are there any muscles you want me to work on?”

Laki relaxes. “My butts a bit sore.”

You think she’s joking. She’s joking, right?

“What did Mace actually say?”

“He said I’m strange.” Keira says without a hint of offense.

Huh. “Is the fire gym dangerous? How do people win?”

Keira thinks. “Well, the fire clergy really like it. They look forward to stuff like this. It’s not dangerous, though, because if anyone gets too hot they can dive into the water below. I think the important thing to remember is that the fire makes the wood weak, and that means he’s going to try to take you out quick.”

You nod. “That makes sense. But if it’s so much trouble and over so quick, why does he bother?”

“Because he likes it.” Laki chimes in. She’s feeling a lot more relaxed. “He knows what he wants and he goes for it.”

“I don’t think that makes you manly.” You say.

“What do you mean?”

“I think being a man is more about overcoming weaknesses and protecting others.”

“Oh.” Laki gets up and turns around, covering herself with her towel first. There’s a little mischief on her face that makes you feel uncomfortable. “That’s just something weak people say to justify not having ambition. Look at me, I’m protecting a bunch of stuff nobody wants!” She puts a hand on your shoulder. “Sorry, Soft Hands. The world is just a mean place. You either dominate or get dominated.”

You remember your promise to Val and keep your eyes locked with Laki. “I disagree.”

She goes from a little upset, to impressed, to mischievous again. “I’ll prove it.” She grabs you, spins around, and pins you down with an armlock. “See?”

She adjusts her towel, causing her grip to loosen.

Ah i like this as well

Can we use the tickle attack as a counter if we fail to break the hold? or maybe as a reversal, putting us in a dominate position?

>There’s a difference between being manly and being a bully
Men don't just assert themselves, they watch out for those in their care.

Those who don't protect their loved ones aren't seen as manly, they are seen as cold, helpless, or cowardly.

A tickle attack would actually be rather symbolic, in the sense of sheer force being overcome through other means.

I do. I'm also hoping Keira gets funny feelings over watching this.

“I can stay here all night, but I won’t give in.”

“Ha! Okay, tough guy. If you-”

“But I won’t!” You slip out of her grasp and turn around. The oil on your hands helps. She grabs her towel up and that’s when you strike. Your fingers find their mark right under her ribs. You try to avoid thinking about her breasts on your wrists and you just go for it.

She jerks back in shock and laughter. “Wait!” She jerks again. She tries to reach out to grab your hands to stop you, but doing that just leaves her ribs open. She can't decide between that or clamping her arms down.

Her towel comes off. You stop to let her get it back, but she instead tries to overpower you, so you keep going.

“I! Ah! Ha!” She can’t even think of what to say as you’re pulled on top of her. Her legs can’t make up their mind either, from trying to kick you away to wrapping around you to wrestle you down.

It’s strange, but in the commotion of it all, the one thing that sticks out to you is how much small and vulnerable she looks while she laughs and screams.

“Okay! Okay! I give up!”

You stop as it becomes clear she actually means it. Then things are really awkward for a moment as the girl who is just wearing bathing suit bottoms with her legs wrapped around you has a sudden realization. Her eyes jump between looking at yours, and between her legs.

“Wow!” Keira says, breaking the tension. “You beat Laki!”

Belladonna makes a bunch of excited, happy noises. She sees it as you playing.

“He didn’t beat me!” Laki protests. She tosses a towel at your face and you flop back. You take your time taking it off and keeping yourself crouched over. “Tickling doesn’t count.” She just finishes putting a shirt on when you look again.Despite her tone, she’s got a smile.

“My turn?” Keira asks.

“Yeah. I think Soft Hands here got enough copped feels on me for the night.” She gives you a funny look. You thought she might get mad, but she looks like she respects you more. She shows it in a funny way, though.

You don’t even know how to respond to that. You saw her boobs. You know people here are more relaxed about that sort of thing, but wow. You didn’t mean to look, but wow. You still have to stay crouched over.

Keira lays down. “Thanks, Herb! You’re always doing stuff like this and cooking. How can I make it up to you?”

>You don’t mind. It’s fine.
>Help me learn more about healing.
>Just keep bringing me new things to cook!
>Ask her a personal question (write in)

Healing seems more like a self discovery thing than something that Keira can teach us. All the other things are just kinda silly. I would want to ask her a question but i cant think of any right now. So this will have to do.

“I don’t mind.” You hesitate. You need to wait before you go over there. Keira is looking right over at you.

“What’s the matter, Soft Hands? Just stand up straight and go massage her.” Laki grins from ear to ear. Why is she...oh.

Oh jeez.

“Umm, Keira, you should close your eyes and relax.” This is by far the most conniving and scheming you’ve pretty much ever been, but you don’t want to freak her out. It’s bad enough that Laki noticed. And she’s still looking at you.

Keira closes her eyes and you quickly go over. “If you really want to though, you can help me learn about healing.”

“Of course!” She becomes bubbly and opens her eyes again. Luckily she’s not at an angle she can see you.”

"Is there a proper way I'm supposed to touch a priestess during a massage? I don't want to break any taboos."

“With gloves or something like that.” Keira says, eyes closed. “But that’s okay. Just treat me like any other girl. You can touch me. Besides, it’s only fair.”

After a second she tenses up.

Huh. Okay. You start massaging her.

Laki gets up and stretches. “I’m going to wash up. I feel really dirty for some reason. Don’t get into any trouble.”

It’s just you and the small Keira. She lets out a noise similar to Belladonna as you work on her shoulder.

“We did this a lot in the temple. The priestesses all know each other inside and out.” She sounds content. For some reason you picture Hana in your head for a second. “Tell me something about the mainland.”

Huh. What can you tell her that she’d be interested in?

You talk about fashion for awhile. Different shows, walkways, the importance of proper lighting, and all the stuff you need to really understand before you can even get into the clothes. She seems really lost, but you get really into it and she doesn’t mind.

You move onto something more relatable. Food. She’s more interested in that, and interrupts you a lot to ask about ingredients you just assumed everyone knows about. Food is so different here. Lots of people fish and forage. But they do have farmlands too. It’s just that if you needed to, you could survive without going to a store.

“You’re making my tummy rumble.” She tells you.

And that’s what makes cooking worthwhile. You know, her muscles are like jelly. If there’s someone absolutely relaxed in this world, it’s Keira. You try not to think unclean thoughts as you work up her leg. You’re normally not perverted or anything, but this night is really putting that to the test. Her small, pert butt becomes visible as her towel starts to slide. You quickly fix it for her.

Um um um. Say something. “So what did you mean before when you said it was only fair?”

She tenses up.

“Uh...”

“What’s the matter?”

“Herb.” She sound scared. Is there a ghost? “Is your culture forgiving if someone makes a mistake?”

“Umm, I guess. It depends on the mistake.” Jeez. Her muscles are rigid now.

“I... I value our friendship.” She says. She sounds like she’s on the verge of tears. “Would you forgive me if I did something bad to you?”

Probably. I mean, we trust her and she knows we're pretty relaxed about stuff. But it's better if we tell her that after she tells us what she did wrong because then she'll have no choice but to believe it.

>>1134950

Feeling less that 'she has to', and more that if she feels this bad about it that she should really get it off her chest. I don't think an apology would matter much if she still feels she's hiding something from us.

“I’m sure I will, but I have to know what it was.”

She sits up. The mask that she uses when she’s giving her face a rest from the paint still shows her very expressive eyes. She even covers herself up. She must feel really worried.

You check to see all your pokemon. They’re all accounted for and okay. If there was one thing that you’d assume that people would be worried to tell you about, it’d be if they hurt one of them.

“Herb. Remember the night of the storm when we took shelter in the shed?”

You nod.

She breathes in and out, and then tells you all about it. She explains what happened, why, but doesn’t offer any excuses. She does mention not quite understanding the seriousness mainlanders have with attitudes to their bodies, but not in a way that sounds like an excuse.

She seems to drop any hope of forgiveness as she finishes the story. “We might see each other again on our journey.” She sniffs. “You can pretend not to know me if you want.”She gets up to leave. “Please don’t let this make you hate Loanah. I hope the view on the lookout is still nice.”
