The Raiders – Part 11You know for a fact that you are intelligent.You may be the most intelligent creature in the stronghold, barring some few of the greater dragons, and you are very likely the most intelligent githyanki in the stronghold, as the most powerful of spellcasters tend to not be around very long when they achieve levels of intellect comparable to your own.So when you think you may have made a stupid mistake in molesting a dragon to the point where she's decided that she not only wants to reciprocate but to do so in her natural form, you have a pretty good set of claws to stand on. Certainly you are also in the form of a dragon, but she is both larger and more experienced with it than you are (being an actual dragon and all). You're also not entirely sure exactly how lesbianism works between two creatures shaped like dragons are. After all, male solar dragons have several things aside from a sexual organ involved in just holding onto a female they're mating with as you recall....and you do recall vividly.Really, the biggest problem is you aren't entirely sure that Yzia isn't interested in also fighting you for dominance, just because you're just that interesting to fight as well as fuck. This has been, and you're quoting her here, something that she's waited on for centuries. While you may be smaller and have less instincts, you do have the advantage of being, well, you, and that means you have a lot of power at your claw-tips, including spellcasting. The question is, dare you use any of it that you're not already using, and do you have enough left that you can use effectively to defend yourself and defeat Yzia without hurting her badly or getting yourself into an even worse situation?It's a terrible thing to have to guess at. Be affectionate and seduce her into relaxing, perhaps. Try and give her a display of power that she will enjoy rather than take as a threat. This is one time where submission might be the wisest choice. Be patient and see how she approaches you rather than possibly making a rash decision. Write in?

>>1187646> Be patient and see how she approaches you rather than possibly making a rash decision.Yay, my favorite reason to stay up all night is here again. How are you doing tonight XS?
>>1187646> Be patient and see how she approaches you rather than possibly making a rash decision.
>>1187700Doing all right, thank you.
Hi XS!>>1187646>Be patientLet's see what she really wants
[X] Be patient and see how she approaches you rather than possibly making a rash decision.Though her pose and presence initially overwhelmed you, now she is simply a strong, intense presence, her power and nature a thing of the mind and body alike. It is a sensual experience now that you've overcome the momentary fear she inspired. Her mental voice – like your own – is more song and emotion than it is words.You cannot imagine what it has been like, watching you grow, shape yourself, shape the world you inhabit, my treasure, she purrs into your mind, stalking slowly around and towards you, her tail lashing slowly and and her wings shivering before she folds them close to her body. Her body language is that of an eager yet wary dragon, one who is barely containing the urge to take what she desires regardless of the consequences of her actions. To see you take on this form, an apotheosis of your skills and power....beautiful, and undeniable in your allure.You lower yourself onto your haunches and bring your head and neck upright to your fullest height – though it is not nearly close to hers. She out-masses you by at least quadruple your weight. But you too fold your wings tightly as you half close your burning red eyes, and lift your ruby horns in a display of coyness, almost a presentation of yourself for her approval. I am honored that you would find me such a worthy recipient of your attentions, my beloved companion. To have garnered your affections and interest for so many centuries is the most flattering of your gifts to me. She moves closer and slowly lowers her head so she can slide the outer edges of her horns along your neck, up to where your own become prominent.The sensual caress becomes more-so as she presses her body along yours, chest to chest, scales making strange shimmering, ringing tones in the emptiness of this void in the Astral Fundament you have created. You shudder at the caress and instinctively respond with one of your own, ducking your head to slide your horns and muzzle along her neck, a vast humming noise erupting from the diamond of your heart as you feel a surge of heat and desire flood through your burning veins. Just let your instincts guide you, even if it is to submit to her. Try and maintain your equality with her, despite instinct. Ask her if she is going to force you, or if she is going to seduce you.... Take a chance and see if you can feel her heartbeat through her chest with your talons. Write in?
>>1187875My general thinking is> Just let your instincts guide you, even if it is to submit to her.Because I feel like Yzia and Akko trust and care for each other enough that who tops who doesn't really matter outside the bedroom and it makes sense to defer to someone with more experience, since Akko is currently unsure of the physical logistics of sapphic dragon sex.
>>1187875> Take a chance and see if you can feel her heartbeat through her chest with your talons.
>>1187875>Just let your instinct guide you>No matter what instincts run through your everything, you will always be Akko. So trust yourself to be yourself, and let yourself be yourself, even as a dragon.
>>1187875> Just let your instincts guide you, even if it is to submit to her.slow night tonight
>>1187942Risk to be seen as hostile, or at least threatening. Dragon claws are not what you want near your heart, even as a dragon.>>1187875Forgot to add here >>1187945>Still make it as interesting as possible for both of you. You know what she likes from you, even as a dragon.
>>1187875>>1187909>Surely you must have wanted to do more than just admire me, how can I help meet your expectations?
[X] Just let your instincts guide you, even if it is to submit to her.[X] Write in? All I do is to maintain myself; my form is not me, but I am the form I wear. And yet, is this not what it is you desired from the beginning?Yzidriava sidles slowly next you you, and one massive claw slides around your own, a joining of hands in effect, if not in appearance. You don't resist; you allow yourself to lean over,your tail and hindquarters supporting you as you slowly bare your chest, your belly, your body to her. You spread one of your wings, opening it wide and offering yourself to her. She spreads her wing as well, but wider and forward, as though to hide you from the stars, to protect you from the faux-heavens.Your talons and hers mesh, and she lowers her body to yours, sliding her larger form against yours in a slow caress of singing scales and shimmering ruby and golden iridescence. You lift your head, sliding your horns along her neck again and she shudders, her need increasing manifold at the sensual movement. Even as a dragon you know how to make her....well, hot probably isn't quite the word you'd want to use considering you would both bleed some kind of magma at the moment.Her other talons mesh with yours, and she slides her body entirely over yours; she isn't truly pinning you, to be honest, as her wings slowly descent to cover those you spread along the transparent force that serves as the floor of this place. It is more a case of needing leverage; if there were physical objects in this place she would be able to gain more purchase.Now you want to try this while flying.She shifts her 'hips' back and forth as she walks her rear legs back until the slide out from under her. You let out a heated breath, waves of it coming from your throat in a draconic gasp as you feel her vents along yours, entirely covering yours. She shifts her hips several more times, spreading your vents and hers as well, opening you....a kind of draconic tribadism, only even more intimate as she twines her neck around yours, and opens her maw over your head.
Not a threat; more of a gape...and you respond in kind, lifting your head to lock your jaws with hers, your head oriented to the side as hers remains in line with your bodies. Her tongue immediately meets with yours and she begins to move, using her fore-claws and wings against yours to move her body back and forth along yours. Her slick, burning vent slides against yours, and where your scales and hers slide against one another here is a thrilling ringing vibration that surrounds you both, moves through your body (and undoubtedly hers as well), making the sensations all the more potent.The gleaming golden fire along your hides moves in concert, and you can feel her heart pulsing in time with your own, powerful and steady, quickening as she mates with you. You breath heat into her mouth and she accepts it, her body igniting from within and making her vent ooze shimmering liquid heat along yours. Her shuddering reaction makes your body throb, your secret flesh burn and practically liquefy against hers as you surprise her yet again with your instinctive desire to share with her.She breathes back, filling your body with her breath, making her life yours and causing your entire body to become liquid flame within as she moves harder against you, mingles her flesh with yours. The sensation of her body sinking into yours, absorbing you, is almost real; her mind engulfing yours with desire, love of a kind, and power is very much real. Accept her mind into yours. Reciprocate fully with her. Guard your sense of self; this is too much. Abandon all reason and rhyme. Write in?
>>1188020> Reciprocate fully with her.Vague but interesting! Also interesting is it seems kind of similar to the Githyanki mating thing, but maybe not as permanent.
>>1188020> Abandon all reason and rhyme.
>>1188020> Accept her mind into yours.
>>1188020>Accept her mind in yours>Reciprocate fully in kindIf we abandon all reason, it should be next turn.Dragon is great. Wonder if she's going to favor her aasimar form, now. Still, I hope other girls can sex Akko just as good, in their own way.
>>1188020Trying to dissect this a bit>] Accept her mind into yours.I guess this means let her into our head> Reciprocate fully with her.This means sharing our mind with hers?> Guard your sense of self; this is too much.This is I guess Akko starting to get cold feet?> Abandon all reason and rhyme.And this is the opposite and lower all boundaries. Tempting but I'm not sure about doing that for our first time.
Man, Akko's dungeon will be so lewd.We could probably get a lot of mooks from the local populations. Many would willingly submit to the new sexy alien overlady in exchange for relative security and food.Getting lots of sex and combat training/magical education they would otherwise not get is a bonus.Yeah, we should have a training facility in our dungeon.
[X] Accept her mind into yours.[X] Reciprocate fully with her.You refuse to look at it as an intrusion – it is sharing, a gift to be accepted....and returned.Accepting the embrace of her mind you perceive a vastness of time and intellect that would be impossible to embrace fully if you were anyone less than yourself. Seeking new experiences, looking to expand your mind, working hard to maintain an identity beyond the place you have in your society, while keeping true to it....you live for these moments. You accept her in every way, body, mind, and soul. And then you allow your own mind to open, to unfold around hers even as she explores your nature, your very essential self. The instant of understanding is complete, total, and with it comes release, explosive as a sun dying, and the sound and sensations of your lovemaking, you union would have destroyed anyone and everything nearby, if you had been anywhere but this empty place between the universes doorways.For an instant, a forever, you are one, a dragon, a githyanki, more than githyanki, more than dragon. Your hearts pulse as one, diamonds shattering to reveal white hot living power that is the center of the draconic self. Your mind is one, and you understand now what it is that drives her, as she knows what it is that drives you. Even as your spell fails, she is rising, looking down at you as you quiver and shake, your mind filled with song and power, your body glowing in rainbow coruscation as the Power fills you.
You come too with Yzia curled around you, her talons spread over your body, keeping you close. There is more than her power in you though; you relax to feel the power, the understanding surging through your mind. You blink slowly, lifting your hands. They look normal, your aura is stable....but you are whole, rested, and your powers – all your powers - are intact and readied. The arcane force you cultivate, your spells, the energy of the Elders....almost entirely returned to you. And you know, less instinct and more simply understanding, you know how to channel the instincts of any form you take, even if it is similar to your own.I fear we have changed, you and I....You look up at Yzia and almost recoil. Where before she was beautiful, glorious, shimmering gold iridescence sliding through scales of gleaming red-gold, horns and fangs of glistening red topaz....now she is awe inspiring. Her horns are longer and thicker, her scales a deeper shade of the red-gold, the iridescence of them shimmering and even more potent. Her talons are thicker and longer, and her eyes brighter, pupils deep and hypnotic.The power of the Elder Githyanki flows around her, singing in your mind softly as you bask in her presence. Apologize profusely for the burden you have brought upon her. Despite your surprise, you are pleased to share this bond with her and Siobhan now. Admit you're totally lost, and ask her how she intends to cope with this mess. Tell her that you were not planning on returning to the Stronghold after this raid....and ask her to join you. Write in?
>>1188126 Tell her that you were not planning on returning to the Stronghold after this raid....and ask her to join you.
>>1188126> Apologize profusely for the burden you have brought upon her.> Tell her that you were not planning on returning to the Stronghold after this raid....and ask her to join you.
>>1188126> Despite your surprise, you are pleased to share this bond with her and Siobhan now.> Admit you're totally lost, and ask her how she intends to cope with this mess.For starters, is this actually a problem? Like the Solar Dragons work WITH the Githyanki for their own reasons, not FOR the Githyanki. So it's not really the Lich Queen's business how strong they get, is it?
>>1188135>>1188137I'm kind of surprised by that option. I thought our original plan was to try and keep cool for the whole Raid, and manage to get our own Lair in a material realm which we'd stack with people we can ensure are subservient to us, and then buy time until we figure something out....On a different note, the fact that we were able to grant Mythic levels to Yzia makes me wonder about our contract with Aeuna.
>>1188147>I'm kind of surprised by that option. I thought our original plan was to try and keep cool for the whole Raid, and manage to get our own Lair in a material realm which we'd stack with people we can ensure are subservient to us, and then buy time until we figure something out.What do you mean? As far as I remember the plan is to attend the raid and then aim for establishing a raiding outpost or something. We cannot return to the Stronghold, nor establish our own Stronghold, so unless we want to completely break with the Githyanki there aren't many remaining options.
>>1188177I get that part, I just wasn't sure if we could avoid giong back to the Stronghold/Astral Plane for an evaluation or something before getting a lair.
>>1188138You may want to look at the updated (and still in recovery) character sheet.
>>1188230Oh... We were only at Mythic Level 2 weren't we?Wait, what was Akko's second trial?
>>1188236Transforming Schechei into an actual githyanki as opposed to a half-elf wearing a githyanki body.
>>1188247I thought you needed two trials to go from Tier 2 to Tier 3?
>>1188126>Tell her you were not going back at the Stronghold>Apologize for the burden... but make clear you'll always be glad about this moment, and to have shared it with her. No matter what happens.>"I love you."
>>1188263>>1188247Tier 0 to Tier 1: Letting Siobhan and Tzanzi combine allowed that Githyanki precursor to possess them and mark AkkoTier 1 to Tier 2: I thought this was guiding a wish for SchecheiBut then I thought we needed two feats to go from Tier 2 to Tier 3, though then again we probably did some other thing in that time period that qualifies because we get things done.
>>1188270I don't belive that akko is in love. She enjoys having Yzia lover and equal but i wouldn't call it love.
>>1188270Remember that love means something very different for a Githyanki.
>>1188304We layed the Dragon.>>1188305And I believe you're wrong. Akko wouldn't have done this with someone she merely "enjoy being lover with"
>>1188310There is such thing as transculturalism, and there is such thing as having atypical feeling compared to your species's norm.Maybe it is not how the Gith usually do it, but there is no other word.
>>1188230Also, holy crap. 22 Dex
>>1188313I mean, seriously. We did a mind meld with the dragon. A Githyanki. Allowing anyone into their mind.
>>1188313See>>1188310This is something i could see Akko doing with Tzanzi but agian i dont think that is love. Rather i think it is a show of the depth of the trust and respect we have for Yzia. Yes affection has something to do with it but love for Githyanki is a feral instinct, and it is not subtle.
As an example, we would likely have instinctively attacked like three diffrent people in our own home just because yzia showed interest in them.
>>1188324I'm pretty sure Githyanki do that sometimes and it's not a taboo? I don't know, I do agree that Akko and Yzia's feelings for each other would be considered love by most, I just don't think Akko would see it that way.
>>1188313But there should be three feats total to go from Tier 1 to Tier 3, and I can only think of two and can't remember which I'm missing.
[X] Tell her that you were not planning on returning to the Stronghold after this raid....and ask her to join you.You gaze at Yzia for a long moment, feeling her power, and your power, swirling and feeding off each other. You suspect that Siobhan would approve, unfortunately; you wonder how her power would interact with yours and Yzia's now.“I have a confession to make, my lovely companion....I have mentioned it to you before. But I am afraid that I can not risk remaining in the Stronghold any longer than I absolutely have to. Even with the run of the Unknown One to protect me, my powers are growing beyond anything I had anticipated. And to transfer any amount of them to you, as well as Siobhan....” You sigh softly. “You will come with me, will you not? I would not force you to, and you have said that there is a danger in it for you....but I would not leave you to face the consequences of my leaving.” Though she had agreed to assist you before, now you are worried about her having to face an inquisition. You cannot return Siobhan, nor can you risk the scrutiny of the Knights.This wonder you have given me is not unknown among my kind, dear one. Though it is the elders and the greatest of us, it is not something that will be much remarked upon. However, such as I am now I should be companioned to a Supreme Leader. I will be required to argue the case before those of us who posses this nature. Your concern for yourself is suddenly eclipsed by your concern for her, and she chuckles, liquid music in your mind. Fear not, my treasured Akko; I will at least make it so that I may remain with you on this raid, and then we shall make our escape.You nod, running your hands over her smooth scales, basking not only in her heat, but the warmth of her affection for you. Once the compact she has with your people is broken, there will be nothing save your loyalty to one another and the love of one another you have to sustain your relationship.“You will be able to use this place to access your Cell, beloved, and to move that which is yours to where you can hide it.” Her amusement makes you flush; she apparently learned a great deal when you were mated with her. The memory of it makes your body flush hot, excited. “....I think that your gift to me was your lust, wicked creature,” you comment mildly, as you slowly rise. The spells you still have up protect you from any form of divination for the moment, so you don't bother trying to see if anyone else could determine more for the moment. On the other hand, the ease with which the new power comes to mind is frightening.
I believe I will take my leave of you and your lovely friends for now, Akko; but before your Colloquy is over, I shall return and enjoy myself with our lovely cadre and your amusing slaves again, this you may be sure of. She lowers her head to you, and you kiss her upon the maw, your tongues eagerly meeting, tangling, your hands gripping her massive fangs. You shudder, the desire to make love to her again rising. But there is much to do, and while you might be rested, it wouldn't do to let people realize that you have some aspect of time under your control at all.“I will await your return with longing, my darling companion.”Acknowledging your goodbye with a warm, vibrant, pleasure and lust filled cloud of emotions and thoughts, you watch her move towards one of the 'walls' and conjure a curtain of shimmering silver iridescence. You watch her leave, wondering at the pang in your heard. Just worry. It must only be that. It must.Cleansing yourself a little more (you suspect you were quite thoroughly cleaned already while you lay unconscious) you return to your cell. Only moments have passed, and things are much as they were. Kteine and Yashi disciplining your half-orc fuck-toy Yustuoc, who is bound and making interesting muffled noises; Schechei and Falna speaking softly with Auena, Cyrillian assisting Jiyua with her p[reparations for the enchanting of the rune, and Rana slowly dance-floating around your human slave Mayune, who is trembling and clearly fearful of the ifrit's attentions on her.You know Jiyua will need at least another hour and some to finish her preparations, but otherwise you are at your leisure....though, you do owe Rana a spanking. Take Rana aside for her spanking in semi-privacy. Torment Mayune a little. That is what she is for, after all. See if Yashi would like to indulge your punishment of Rana. Perhaps Kteine might enjoy being taught to administer a proper spanking....which might annoy Falna a little. Write in?
>>1188339Again, it is not because Githyanki love is like that than Akko's love has to be limited by it.Love an emotion and a societal concept, and is part biological and part cultural in both case. But individuals are more than their species.I can't see another term to describe the bond between the Gith and the Dragon.
>>1188364This is in addition to what we voted to do already, right?
>>1188364Now im willing to admit that Akko is beginning to love. She will still fight it though if for no other reason than to keep from narrowing her options for entertainment.
>>1188364> See if Yashi would like to indulge your punishment of Rana.
>>1188376She can love more than one. She can also love several people in different manners.As for limiting herself, neither her nor Yzia are going to stop having sex, fun and sexy fun with others. The dragon's last comment was basically "have to go, i'll be back to lewd the people under you"
>>1188364> Take Rana aside for her spanking in semi-privacy.
>>1188372I belive you might be under a slight misconception. Githyanki love, as far as it has be explained, is an instinctive reaction to an emotional bond bread into the race. Akko would immediately know(and does) when it happed. Now we will most likely fight down our instincts when they try to rear their ugly head.
>>1188364>"Torment" Rana and Mayune a little, in a way the three of you enjoy. Then move on to the promised spanking for the ifrit, and see how the human reacts.Experimentation! Science! Threesome!
>>1188406I know that, but people are not limited to their instincts and breeding.For exemple: Falna, in her own ways, did love her half-elf and half-ifrit enough that *not* being bonded with them was unacceptable. So she tried to make them Gith, with the consequences we know.The idea of wanting that level of bond with someone from another species would be alien to most Githyanki. But Falna had it enough that she went "they must become Giths to accomodate me".Speaking of Falna>>1188364I forgot to add to my vote here >>1188411>Perhaps Kteine might
>>1188431>>1188411>>1188381I don't know, I thought Rana was more "punishment" than actual punishment, so I'm not sure about making a big show of it, even if she's a pretty good performer.
>>1188435Please, we're in the middle of an orgy that's just starting. Yustuoc is getting sexually bullied right now
>>1188442Well yeah, but she's a slave we got for the express purpose of sexual bullying.
>>1188373It's an adjunct. The choices made were:#1 Akko's New Spell (Completed)#2 Rana's Spanking #3 Fixing Cyrillian #4 Tzanzi Arrives #5 Akko's ResearchThat doesn't mean the choices can't be expanded or modified to an extent, nor does it mean other things will not happen while Akko is busy.>>1188372As a slight correction, love between two githyanki is emotional, but it is also extremely locked into their biology and psychic power. Akko has stated before that the concept of Yzia as a mate was 'ludicrous' because their species are alien to one another. That doesn't mean she cannot have more platonic forms of love.Also, Tzanzi cannot be mated to any githyanki - there are parts of her brain that are missingfor that to happen. It doesn't mean she cannot love in a lesser sense. Likewise, Akko couldn't fall in love with Tzanzi - there are too many things literally missing in Tzanzi for it to be possible, not the least of which is the psychic connection.
>>1188447Thank you for the clarification.
>>1188364>>1188411>>1188400In the interests of avoiding deadlock, I guess I could see> Torment Mayune a little. That is what she is for, after all.Or at least give Rana permission to do whatever it is she wants to do to Mayune, before segueing into spanking Rana.

[x] Take Rana aside for her spanking in semi-privacy.[x] Torment Mayune a little. That is what she is for, after all.[x] See if Yashi would like to indulge your punishment of Rana.[x] Perhaps Kteine might enjoy being taught to administer a proper spanking....which might annoy Falna a little.[X] Write in? I wonder what it is that interests Rana about my pretty mindbroken toy....You silently walk over to where Mayune stands holding an empty tray close to her bosom, her simple yet elegant dress with the long slit along her thighs barely brushign the floor. Rana has paused and is bent over in mid air before the human slave, who is biting her lip nervously and looking worriedly at the ifrit. Rana is smiling, murmuring something to Mayune....you narrow your eyes studying her lips. ....sweet and lovely woman that you are, I can see that you are interested – all it would take is a few words – I wish that she would love me – and she would....The smirk that your lips curl into is, honestly, mostly amusement. You would no more expect Rana not to tease a human with wishes than you would expect Schechei not to try and kill you if you kissed Falna on the lips. Freshly mated githyanki, especially youthful ones, are even more volatile than older githyanki. You suspect that Mayune's current issue is that she can't tell the difference between an ifrit and a demon. Especially with Rana playing the temptress.“Mayune, what are you doing?” You slide your hand along the small of her back and the woman immediately stiffens, crushing the tray to her ample bosom and making her tremble. Rana smiles wickedly and performs a slow somersault through the Astral Fundament. “What have I told you about bothering my guests?” You give a knowing glance to Rana, who gives you a wicked and knowing grin in response. Mayune is far too terrified to notice. You slowly walk around to face her and she trembles even more, uncertain if she should fall to her knees and beg forgiveness, or hope that you're in a benevolent mood today.
“She has been no bother at all, Gish Akko,” Rana claims contritely. “She was indulging me in a small game of 'what if', nothing more, I assure you.” Mayune looks at Rana with a slightly horrified expression of relief, uncertain if she's going to get into moretrouble, or less, and undoubtedly wonder what the succor will cost her.“Indeed?” You look back at Mayune in a calculating manner and she swallows, unable to avoid looking you in the eyes. You have made sure of that over the decades. She is also pressing her thighs together, her terror bringing with it arousal, a response you have trained into her. “Would, you perhaps care to tell me what the question was, Mayune?”Her face goes white and Rana slides around behind her, resting her hands on the woman's shoulders, and leaning to murmur in her ear. “it is quite all right, Mayune....she can't exactly fault you for indulging a guest in a game after all....” Rana's entirely off the mark there, of course, and she knows it. Mayune swallows, looking into your eyes with an unspoken plea to give her any clue as to your mood. Encourage Mayune gently. Encourage Mayune forcefully. Threaten Mayune wickedly. Gently coax Mayune. Write in?.
>>1188601> Gently coax Mayune.I'm not sure if Rana is tempting Mayune for Rana to love her or for us to love her. But if it's the former, I feel like it's only fair that we warn Mayune that when a Githyanki loves someone, they love with -teeth-.
>>1188601> Threaten Mayune wickedly.
>>1188611>formerI mean latter. I'm... not really sure if Ifrits have any cultural standards when it comes to love.
>>1188601>Encourage Mayune gently>Maintain her arousal at the same level despite the reassurance
>>1188611We should act wounded, and make Mayune -sincerely- tell us in which ways she's not satisfied with how we treat her, and then correct some of it.Mayune would probably be useful in the Material Plane, if we handle her carefuly.Wonder if Akko has any bit of affection for her slaves, despite how she treat them.
>>1188639>Wonder if Akko has any bit of affection for her slaves, despite how she treat them.I'd guess about the same affection you'd have for a semi-useful farm animal. They provide a service you appreciate, but not one you can't manage without.
>>1188639I guess encouraging Mayune is fine instead of coaxing, but we're probably not going to lay much more groundwork than we already have with our slaves without heavy magical intervention.
>>1188648Well, I voted encouraging because coaxing, even gently, means Akko is taking control, while if we just encourage, she realizes what happens next is her responsability
>>1188615Ifrits may, but Rana is a slave in the City of Brass. A well regarded, high ranked slave....but it's the City of Brass, and her master is- and father probably was- efreeti.
If breaking the tie is needed, I can change my vote
>>1188747The two other votes are closer to each other than mine. Better to go for some merge of those two.
[X] Write in? Perhaps this time you might be allowed to get away with something. Perhaps.[X] Encourage Mayune gently.“She is right, Mayune,” you comment mildly, lightly bushing a stray wisp of hair from her cheek, your fingertips stroking her skin ever so lightly. She blushes immediately, and swallows, as you smile at her. “I may be cruel at times, but if it is Rana's game you are playing, then it would not be you that would earn my ire, would it?” She hesitantly shakes her head, as she is supposed to. “So, do tell me what the question was, and we shall see what kind of trouble Rana has tried to get you into, so we can deal with it appropriately.”Rana's flaked-gold-and-topaz eyes glitter with amusement; she is clearly impressed by your manipulation of the lovely woman. You've had a lot of time to work on her though, and you can tell that the poor thing's scattered wits aren't helping her think through her decision. “She asked me if there was someone I wished to love me,” she murmurs, keeping her eyes on you with a great deal of effort. “I wasn't sure how to answer, my lady.” Her cheeks are bright red, and you step a little closer, gently lifting her chin up to keep her eyes on yours.That it allows your breasts to brush along hers through your silken tunic and her satin dress is not coincidental or accidental.“Would you wish for someone to love you?” She swallows nervously, but her eyes don't move. “Would you wish me to love you?” Her eyes flick down and she tugs at the sides of her dress, but she only lets her eyes escape yours for that instant. “Oh, that was the answer then?” Her heart would be racing if it beat in this place. As it is, she is excited and terrified. Rana watched enraptured, as you lean a little closer, and whisper to her. “Do you love me, Mayune?”“Y-yes m-mistress. I love you.” You would have been surprised if she didn't. She also fear and hates you, but her love is still overwhelming and pervasive in comparison to the little hate she feels when you are cruel.
Rana's elation is almost palpable as you tilt your head and brush your lips along Mayune's cheek. “Do you want to make that wish, dear Mayune?” you whisper to her; she whimpers, terrified and yet hopelessly needing you. “Will you sell your soul for that opportunity?”“No!” She catches herself as you lean back and look at her with an amused smile. “N-no mistress, please forgive me, I did not want to think of it, but she said such things....”“forgive you for what, Mayune?” you ask curiously, gazing at her with aplomb.Mayune's frazzled nerves start to fray. “F-f-forgive me for....” Her eyes dart right and left, as if frantically searching for the reason she should seek forgiveness. She catches onto it quickly enough this time. “Forgive me for making the refusal without calling you my lady, my lady, and forgive me for considering the demon's offer!”Rana sprouts an illusory tail and a tony pair of wings, which fade just as quickly as they appeared. Tell her she's been rude, and must make amends. Forgive her, for the moment, and send her on her way. Have her offer an apology to Rana and request discipline. Explain the difference between demons and ifrits, and tell her she will be reprimanded later. Write in?
>>1188757> Have her offer an apology to Rana and request discipline.
>>1188757> Have her offer an apology to Rana and request discipline.> Explain the difference between demons and ifrits, and tell her she will be reprimanded later.
>>1188757>Explain the difference between demon and ifrit. Don't punish her for her mistake, but make it didactic: make it like a mini-lecture, and ask her questions to make her come to conclusions herself. If she get it right, reward her, if she gets the wrong conclusions, punish her and correct her.>Reveal to Rana you were serious about punishing her for messing with your slave >Tell your slave you are none the less please she still has enough good sense to not sell her soul.
[X] Have her offer an apology to Rana and request discipline.[X] Write in? You really should know the differences by now, Mayune....but you'll learn them well by the time we are through with you. As for you, Rana Najla....You look into her soft grey eyes and murmur calmly and slowly to the shaken woman. “Mayune....you should apologize to the genie-kin and ask her for a suitable disciplining before she makes a complaint to me.”Te lovely woman blanches, her face white as a sheet and the tremor in her body not merely the result of your teasing. She steps back from you and bows her head before turning to Rana, who floats a few inches off the flooring of the Cell and smiles beatifically at your slave. “Please forgive me mistress, for my ignorance and stupidity in referring to you as something which you are not. I shall endeavor to learn the differences more carefully, and avoid giving offense to your kith or kin alike.” She looks at the exotic half-efreet and earnestly begs, “Please discipline this slave as you see fit mistress, for her temerity and stupidity!”You smile and stroke her soft hair slowly, approving tacitly of her apology. She smiles, despite the terror and the fine tremble through her body.“It would be unseemly for one slave to discipline another, Mayune – please consider the matter closed, if you would.” Rana's magnanimous gesture and indulgent smile are swiftly gone when she see how horrified Mayune is. You smile wickedly at Rana, who looks to you, then to your slave.“Thank you mistress,” she murmurs in a stricken voice. Before curtsying clumsily to Rana and then to you before she slowly walks away to fetch more refreshments.
Rana looks at you in confusion, and you smile. “Never fear, I will do no further lasting harm to her for your lack of discipline. She will be barely useful until I get back to her about it, but the worry will do her good. I will make certain she knows the differences between demons, devils, tieflings, ifrits, and other peculiar peoples well enough, you have my word.”Rana watches the slave find your cold-locker and collect delicacies and cordials to fill her tray. “What did you do to her, if I may ask? I have seen a very few slaves reduced to such a state in the City, but none so thoroughly and utterly broken yet sane enough to feel anything at all about their situation!”“She was in a worse state when I found her. She had been losing her mind; she is not terribly bright, and this place can destroy stronger minds than hers. I brought her to life by a combination of cruelty and affection, drawing her out of herself until her entire universe is ruled by me as both angel and demon.” Mayune is still excited and terrified, all the more so because now she has no idea when, where or in what form her discipline will come. She barely speaks to the guests she serves, and you can see that she's pressing her thighs together as she walks, but dares nothing more. “Though I would be a liar if I claimed I did it for her sake.”Rana looks at you with an expression of mingled curiosity and awe. “I will remember never to cross you again, Gish Akko. Yzia had warned me, but I did not understand the warnings until now.”You take the coiled length of golden chain from the catch at the throat of her collar and slowly unwind it, until a four-foot length separates the looped chain about your hand from her collar. “And here I had thought you would have dismissed the fact that I was going to spank you. Though I am going to have to consider exactly whether or not you earned further by trying to trick my slave into selling her soul to you.” She shivers, and looks at you with an expression of amusement all her own. “Not at all, gish Akko....Mistress Yzia was quite clear that you do not ever make idle threats....”>To Be Continued....
Thank you for Reading and Playing.Akko will indeed lecture and punish her wayward slave, but not in the next few sessions. Rana on the other hand, is definitely going to get hers next session. I will be around for a little while and checking the thread periodically as always. thank you for your patience today.
>>1188877>>1188879Rana is truly a delight.>>1188916Thanks for running.
>>1188916Thanks for running!There is no reason to thanks us for patience, the pace was nearly as good as the writing, and the writing is incredible.Question, though: in what way is the slave girl "not bright"? Isn't she a wizard?
>>1189001Akko is speaking from the perspective of a 500 year old genius who has made survival in the Astral Plan into an existence long project, and who has seen brighter and better mind among the githyanki destroyed by life on the Astral. Mayune is a certifed wreck after what she's gone through, and though she is a wizard, she is both human and been systematically abused. Even Akko's relatively benevolent abuse serves to keep her mind occupied with things outside of her existence on the astral, and her previous owner wasn't nearly as attentive.
>>1188916thanks for running!
Aww man, I missed the whole thread.Thanks for writing XS!
Thanks for running!
You are all very welcome.
Is there a Mythic Trial I'm forgetting, or did Akko just need one to go from Tier 2 to Tier 3? Did talking Kteine into Evil count? Because it seems like we're really rocketing up the ranks.
>>1189939Tier 1: Encounter with the Elder spirit possessing Tzanzi and Siobhan.Tier 2: The wish that made Schechei a true Githyanki in body, mind and soul.Tier 3: Mind-Link with Yzia during awesome dragon sex.
>>1190000Yeah but according to the rules I'm looking at, while you only need to do one trial to go from tier 1 to tier 2, you need two trials to go from tier 2 to tier 3, and the Elder Spirit doesn't count as a trial because that's what brought Akko from tier 0 to tier 1, so I feel like we're still one trial short.I mean, I guess if anything it helps us out, since we gave Yzia Mythic Power and it's a lot harder to hide than a rune on her cheek, which means that the only way we can stay with her is if we both go on the run, so we need all the power we can get, but it's still a little confusing.
>>1188916XS, what does Akko think of Gith slavery in relation to the War? Does she understand the concept of hubris and becoming that which you despise?
>>1190070>>1189680Relinking this as well, XS.
But man, we are in a pickle. Not only is Akko powerful enough to be on Vlaakith(?)'s shitlist, her closest compains include a Myhic Solar Dragon and a Mythic Silver Sword, two things the Githyanki definitely want, and let's not forget the purpose of her originally gaining mythic tiers was to reform the Silver Swords which means being in close contact with the Githyanki.It is amazing how things spiralled out of control essentially from experimentally kinky sex.
>>1191784The purpose that a corrupted spirit said was to do that. It's clearly an Elder Power, but why it was connected to Siobhan is another question. Hell, why it specifically targeted Tzanzi specifically is interesting. Makes me wonder just what happened to create it.
>>1190070>>1189939>>1190000Close. Guidingn Kteine into the mindset of the githyanki is what accomplished it. It wasn't obvious, it wasn't "in-your-face" glaringly "THIS IS A N ACT OF THE GODS" sort of thing.You gently and quietly helped Kteine overcome her 'humanity' in favor of taking on the inhuman, pragmatic, emotion-wracked life of a githyanki warrior. You remade her, not through magic or force, but by (relatively) gently showing her that she needs to be something more than human - or ifrit - and definitely more than a slave in mentality to achieve her dreams.tl; dr: Akko acted a psychologist and used thoughtful and calm methods without sex or undue violence to teach Kteine "this is what it is to be githyanki".Like all such trials it's a one-off; you won't be gaining any power through another such success or attempt.
>>1191337Gith slavery is a paradox, but it has a solution. The solution is the same one the githyanki used - declare yourself no longer a slave and fight off the chains that bind you.There was one point where she was explaining to Kteine that there are githyanki warriors who used to be slaves; but she explained the "slaves" part in telepathy because she didn't want Yustuoc to overhear because then Yustuoc would make assumptions about how to free herself. To be free in githyanki society you have to actually decide that you're going to be free and fight or prove that you are free. You do that, you can take your place in githyanki society, regardless of your race.Even the word 'githyanki' isn't a name for their race; the literal translation is "those/we who follow Gith". Githzerai means "those/we who reject Gith". _____________----------------------_______________Spoilers.__________--------------_____________
>>1191954The spoilers in the previous post are in relation to your question.
>>1192104So if Yustuoc really fought to free herself, Akko would accept it as valid, instead of thinking "inferior beings should obey the Gith on principle"?
>>1192277Yes. One of Akko's mentors was a human; inferiority is a position that isn't imposed, in her thinking, but when you accept impositions. (Though she may not be entirely correct, that is her viewpoint.)
>>1192098So how close is Kteine to becoming a "proper" Githyanki?
>>1193136Closer than you expected, and definitely close enough that she's starting to think on their terms, instead of the terms she has been. It might take a few months, but the raid will make her properly githyanki if nothing else can.
