Knot a Problemhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Island%20Adventure%20Questhttps://twitter.com/GobbleQMCharacter info pastebin in progress: http://pastebin.com/iB0tb7rzDice odds for best of 3: http://pastebin.com/994WTT3gGeneral rules:There is a 10 minute voting period after each post. Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.Write-ins for all votes are always welcome and encouraged. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as circumstances warrant.Combat mechanics involve three rolls of 1d100, taking the best, and using the base accuracy and crit ranges of the game, roughly, but the 'turn order' will be more like the anime, where sometimes you can do a few moves in a row or be hit by a combo of moves yourself, all depending on circumstances. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first. Infact, you can do more than one move in a row like the anime, but so can your opponents.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Totodile)Badges: 3Recently: You had a fashion-off with a pirate captain and won! You helped Hana catch a Chinchou with some good old night fishing.

“Sorry about that.” Hana quickly puts her clothes back on and covers the scarred parts especially fast. Her clothes cling and get soggy because there’s no towel to dry off with first. “Heh, I don’t want to kill the chef’s appetite.” She awkwardly laughs at her self deprecating joke.She drains the water as much as she can from her shoulder length hair, shakes herself off a little, and then approaches you. Her giddy enthusiasm is much more muted now. “Thanks, Herb. You’re really the best.” She leans over to give you a one armed hug, being careful not to get water on you. “How can I repay you?”“Oh, you don’t have to. I didn’t really do much.” You smile.“Yes you did, and yes I do.” Her voice takes on an unusually firm tone. “I’m not really comfortable being a burden and feeling like I owe people. Please, you’ll be doing me a favor if you let me repay you. Name it. Whatever I can do for you. Anything.”>Help me massage Laki>Surprise me, then. I’m sure you’ll think of something>Help me find a gem, it’s the last thing I need for the rod>Treat me to dinner some time>Maybe...umm..what we did in the closet...>Something else

>>1390510>Help me find a gem, it’s the last thing I need for the rodIt'll be a good bonding experience, Hana'll feel useful and we'll get the list finished.

>>1390510>Help me find a gem, it’s the last thing I need for the rod
>>1390510>>Help me find a gem, it’s the last thing I need for the rod
>>1390510>Help me find a gem, it’s the last thing I need for the rodI mean, I think we all know what Herb WANTS to say, but this seems like what he actually would say.
>>1390510>Maybe...umm..what we did in the closet...Cmon guys she's obviously into it so it's as much a reward for herb as it is for her
>>1390565Remember, Herb is 100% totally asexual and does even not know what sex is.
>>1390510>Help me find a gem, it’s the last thing I need for the rodThough of course, the fishing practice was benefit enough.
>>1390565At least be honest about it like >>1390528>>1390570I wouldn't go that far.
>>1390510>Treat me to dinner some timeToo cute not to do.
>>1390510>Maybe...umm..what we did in the closet...I might be boarding a new ship....
>>1390510>>Surprise me, then. I’m sure you’ll think of somethingWoo time for provider of best butts and massaging muscle butts!
“Well, if this is too much, let me know, but I’d really like to eat you-” he lights up and gasps “...‘re cooking sometime.”“Heh. Oh. Umm, yeah, okay. I’m not a good chef like you, though. Maybe I could buy you dinner instead?”“Whatever you prefer. Just don’t go to too much trouble.”“Sure! Umm, was there anything else? That doesn’t seem fair, just dinner, I mean.” Hana shivers, but still comes a little closer. The poor girl must be cold. You’re feeling fine, and the night air is a bit warm, but you’re not soaked to the bone like she is. “It’s just that it doesn’t feel like enough. Are you sure there’s not something else I can do for you?”You feel a bit guilty asking her for anything else, but consider how much she’s shaking right now, and apparently has something in her teeth she’s trying to fish out with her tongue, you feel pressure to add something to the list. “Yeah. Okay. Now that you mention it. You could help me out with my rod.”“Really? I mean, okay! Wow. As long as you’re okay with that and you don’t think I’m weird or like this with just anyone. Oh gosh, this is crazy! Right here?”“Here? Do you think we’d find the gem on the beach?” You look around on the sand. Maybe she knows something about them that you don’t.“Gem?”“Yeah. For the rod. I have the bamboo and the silk, but I still need the gem.”“...oh! Oh.” She looks embarrassed.“What did you think I meant?”“That’s not important!” She starts pushing you back towards the ship. “Come on, it’s late, and didn’t you say you had more to do tonight?”“Oh yeah! I have to massage Laki.”“Alright. Well, good luck!” she cringes at her own response. “I mean, have fun. You don’t really need luck. Not that I mean, well, yeah. Anyway, thanks. I’m going to get to go to my room for a bit, then get to know Chinchou.” She laughs a lot for some reason. “See you tomorrow!”You wave as she vanishes into the ship, then head to Laki’s room.“Laki?” You cautiously knock on the door. Hearing no response, you crack it open a little and peak inside. She’s facing down asleep on the bed, with nothing but a small towel covering her lower body. Bella immediately climbs up and crawls next to her to sleep.>Well, you’ll just do it some other time then>Grab the oil and massage her awake>Wake her up, ask if she’s still up for it>Wait, there was something you wanted to talk to Hana about before bed>Something else
>>1390732>>Wake her up, ask if she’s still up for it

>>1390732>>Grab the oil and massage her awakeMen do! Show her you're a man!
>>1390732> he lights up and gaspsButt
>>1390732>Grab the oil and massage her awakeIt's the Laki thing to do.
>>1390732>Grab the oil and massage her awakeWe promised, and this'll be a fun surprise for her, right? Just make sure not to start "full body."
>>1390732>>Grab the oil and massage her awakeWell it's good to know that Herb is made from the most dense material known to man, shonen protagonist.Though now I feel kind of bad for Hana and wouldn't mind finding some way to make it up to her.
>>1390732well shit changing >>1390736to >Grab the oil and massage her awakewew
>>1390732>>Grab the oil and massage her awake
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>1390732>Grab the oil and massage her awake

>>1390790>While Herb is unconscious desperately tries to think of a way to apologize>Hana is the only one awake to give her advice
>>1390811And so Herb had another seven minutes in heaven. Unfortunately he wasn't awake for them.
>>1390732>Wake her up, ask if she’s still up for itWell, it's going to be a hard choice between Laki and Hana, so how about some music to help us think:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RVTvwZUAyM
>>1390886I choose both.
>>1390886I choose Keira. Those two aren't bad though.
>>1390886Laki is the far, far superior option
>>1390886>>1390890>>1390896>>1390910No stop, its too early.
>>1390886Laki a best.not ashamed to admit that missing limbs honestly creep me out. She's a sweet girl but just no.
>>1390886Hana is the best, obviously. Don't get me wrong, I like Laki. I just like Hana more.
>>1390910Honestly it's only been little bits but I wanna see more of Val she could be nice>>1390915I was gonna link you to the kawata shojo thread on VG but apparently that died at some point, I'm kinda sad
>>1390886I'd be happy* with either of them.
>>1390890>>1390896>>1390910>>1390914>>1390915I'm a little surprised that song didn't get a mention from anyone.Not even a shot for being an awful joke?
>>1390935Everyone was too distracted talking about their waifus to notice
>>1390935I thought it was a rather nice song actually, adding it to my playlist.
>>1390928Yeah no someone linked that game to me once and told me it was a great/happy cute vn etc.I started it and then my blood ran cold and I was grossed the fuck out. Missing limbs triggers my squick.
>>1390955You weren't missing much anyway, it was ok but nothing worth obsessing for 2500+ threads on 4chan
>>1390955That's an interesting phobia to have.Can you think of any experiences that may have ingrained that into you? Or do you find limbless people to bring up emphatic feelings of helplessness and weakness or something?
>>1390944>>1390946Well, at least some people enjoyed it.What's betting Herb and Keira's children would be gods?
>>1390986I don't think Keira would be a fan of going for the blasphemy route.
>>1390983Somewhere in between? I've had my feet reconstructed twice. There's empathy but mostly disgust.>>1390935Weird song. Not a fan. If I'm going for folksy stuff I'll stuck with the followinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3bodlgmZYwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVY8LoM47xIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49FWp7WLYKw
>>1391001Please, explain this disgust more.
>>1390986Not sure they'd be gods but that would depend on what Keira's interpretation of us meeting Rayquaza would be. The vibe i got was he was more of the 'great destroyer' type>>1390996Yet.That said, it would have to be her choice
You take the bottle of oil she apparently prepared and squeeze a little out. You figure you still owe her one heck of a massage, and that she’d probably appreciate waking up to it. No need to rustle her awake when you can do it gently.You make sure your hands aren’t cold or anything, then lay them on her shoulders. She stirs, but still remains asleep. Your hands start working her shoulders and just generally getting into it. You’re no expert at this, but you know the basics.“Mmmm.”Bella is already asleep, curled up in a ball. She makes a high pitched sigh right after Laki’s moan.You keep going up and down, just getting her body used to the sensation and spreading a thin bit of the oil. You work up and down her legs now, feeling her intensely strong muscles there. It’s a bit intimidating. You could bounce a coin off of almost any part of her and it’d spring off with a healthy air time. You touch under your own shirt and find while you’ve come a bit of a ways, you’re leagues under how toned she’s gotten her body.“Mmmm.” She moans again. Is she awake now?Oh gosh. Her towel slips a little as you work up the back of her leg. You adjust it back onto her more securely and move back up her body to her arms. Now these are tense, and there’s some knots around her shoulders too. She must have done a million pushups or something. Even the muscles on the outside of her shoulder blades are stiff. You accidentally brush her squished breast when massaging it. Oh jeez. You back your hands away.“Mm, come on, don’t stop.” She barely lets out. You guess she’s awake. “More. Don’t be such a wuss and do a good job.”Wuss. Why’d she have to say that? She knows that’s a sore spot for you.>You’re offended. Stop the massage. That hurt your feelings and she knew it would>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!>Try to use your healing power, despite how tired you are (will require roll)>Just give a regular, professional massage>Something else
>>1391052>>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!>Try to finish it with healing power despite how tired you are!
>>1391052>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!
>>1391052>>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!I'LL SHOW YOU
>>1391052>>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!
>>1391052>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!She wants it? We'll give it to her. All night long
>>1391052>>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!>Something else"You asked for it."
>>1391052>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!>Try to use your healing power, despite how tired you are (will require roll)Work those healing muscles!
>>1391076Adding>smack her butt
>>1391090Slow down Dark Herb
>>1391052>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!Bella close your eyes
>>1391052>Just give a regular, professional massageShe' said probably just talking in her sleep.
>>1391097please, knowing Herb he'd hurt his hand since you could probably bounce quarters of her butt. For the record though, she'd love it
>>1391090>>1391052Y-yeah! That'll show her!
>>1391099This really is like a Mom and Dad getting lewd in front of their Kid, isn't it?
>>1391090Hell, I'll suppory it
>>1391052>>1391090Fuck it why not, throwing in support.
>>1391090Oh god. Dark Herb is here and it's worse than I ever imagined.
>>1391052>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!And supporting smacking the butt
>>1391162Dark Herb' s depravity truly knows no bounds!
>>1391162Its all part of my master plan. Just think today, smacks on the ass, tomorrow HANDHOLDING! Mwahahaha
>>1391052>Give her an intense, full body, invasive massage. You’re not a wuss!Also:>Try to use your healing power, despite how tired you are (will require roll)Practice, practice, practice. I want to see Herb transfixed by an Aura Sphere he created by the end of this.
>>1391090Supporting>smack her butt.With a side of "Behave."
>>1391236The only non-support skills I'll support are fitness and learning to sword fight like a true conquistador.
>>1391256Pokemon training might be another to add to the list..
>>1391264Pokemon training is just supporting your pokemon, it's literally bringing out the best in someone else.
“I’m not a wuss.” You say quietly. You hate that accusation. Just because you’re nice and you don’t like to impose, people think you’re a doormat. Sure, you let a lot of stuff slide, but that’s because you just choose your battles and you’re not petty. You’re willing to make a stand to a bully when it really matters. When talking it out just won’t work.You are, aren’t you?“Prove it.” She bounces her butt muscles. Even through the towel they’re obvious.“Fine!” You whisper as loudly as you dare. You give her rear a good smack. “Now behave!”Her eyes shoot open. Uh oh, was that too far?“Heh. Yes sir. Guess that’s what I get for teasing you.” She smiles and closes her eyes again. “But that’s just a half second contact.”She’s still implying you’re scared. Okay, maybe you are scared, but you’re not a doormat and you’re not a wuss! You put your hands on her legs, then move your hands right up to her bare butt and start massaging.Holy jeez what are you doing?“Right there. It’s been sore all day.” She says nonchalantly as she lowers her head back down onto the pillow. “And see? The sky didn’t fall.”You massage her shapely, perky, somewhat large butt, working the muscles and trying not to peak. When you’re done that area beyond what’s reasonable, you move up her lower back. Since it’s a bed and not a massage table, you climb over her to get a better angle. As long as you don’t move too forward, she won’t feel you poking her.Oh jeez oh man how did you get into such an awkward situation?You work her lower back. Man, there’s something about the naked back of a woman that’s beautiful. You massage up to her upper back and shoulders, making sure they’re okay, and occasionally poking her despite your best efforts anyway. She just has this condescending, smug look on her otherwise relaxed face. You work her stiff arms. She really has been working them out.Next, her sides. You no longer care about brushing the side of her breasts, and you keep working the muscles there. You’re losing a lot of the gusto that you had when you started. She rolls over. You guess that’s your signal to keep going. You work the front of her arms, her shoulders, then stop and move down to her legs.“You’re not done, are you?”You turn around and gulp. Her heaving breasts stand out as the one spot on her torso not shining with oil. You remember punching her and massaging her there before, so what’s the big deal, right? You gulp, then massage them too. She gasps and smiles. Oh wow. They’re soft but not and you can feel them move up and down with her quickening breathing. You even feel her heartbeat. By the time you figure you’re done, she’s arching her back to your hands. You’re feeling a lot less wussy now, but also a million times more intimidated. What are you doing?(continued)
>>1391341You work her feet now. The soles, the toes, all over in a methodical draining of all her tension and soreness. She gives the occasional guttural noise to let you know what’s working, and feeling the stiffness in certain spots fills in the rest. You move from her feet to her calf muscles. The towel covering her front slips a little and you don’t bother fixing it. From there, you keep moving up. Her legs are too close together to get your hands around, so she spreads them for you without a word. You push all the stiffness of the day out of her tree trunk leg muscles, making her even more oiled up. You eyes occasionally go somewhere else other than her shiny, oiled body in the dark room to check on Bella or to see if the door somehow got magically opened without you noticing. This whole thing has gotten very intense. Your hands on massaging her inner thigh now. They’re feeling warm, and Laki’s contented face is giving you a lot of confidence and confusion.You’re millimeters away from touching her under the towel. You can feel the heat. She very subtly adjusts herself to be another millimeter closer. Oh jeez oh man how did this even happen?“On my island, a man takes what he wants.” She mutters. Her one eye is half open and looking at you.What’s happened lately? First Hana now this. Is she serious? Is she taunting you? Did she really have to phrase it to imply you aren’t manly enough? Your head swims with a mix of emotions and questions. How is this night going to end?>Lewd>No lewd[If lewd, we’ll vote on how far. If not, I can still give a lewdbin so you don’t feel like you need to vote one way just to get extra content. This is not a routelock]

>>1391353>LewdLaki instigates.She probably wants some satisfaction after Val left her hanging. What she does with Herb is something else entirely. Domming maybe?
>>1391390Lewd doesn't mean we have to make her pregnant.Herb could just give her an indepth lower massage. Or... maybe.. with.. his mouth. First time they have the sex he could take her on a romantic dinner. and Take her to a room covered in rose petals a-and Hold her hand while taking her virginity.
>>1391390The Lakifags are out in full force, your unfortunately not gonna be listened to.
>>1391390We don't have to push too far, we can lewd her just enough to leave aching and wishing for more.
>>1391413I get the feeling that last one is long gone. Laki's pretty clear on taking what she wants.
>>1391419I really doubt Laki is this many anon's #1 waifu.
>>1391353>No LewdBe strong Herb
>>1391413I wouldn't mind teasing her like Val did too much.>>1391426Laki's fantasybin says otherwise I'm pretty sure.
>>1391429I feel that the amount of votes speak otherwise.
>>1391426Her fantasy bin implied she's never been with many guys/doesn't think guys find her cute/attractive.The confidence is a show. She's worried she's too big/manly.
>>1391429She's strong, confident and she's got Herb around her finger.I think this is more people voting on the outcome of Laki's teasing, than anything.
>>1391353>>LewdFor the record I'm still on the Hana train, but we got the closet so fair is fair
>>1391429I for one am torn between Hana and Jane but I'm down for some exploratory lewds here. Laki seems cool with casual stuff, so it's not like this *has* to be a big thing.
>>1391437I'm sure some anons just want lewd no matter with who. or >>1391445
>>1391429Doesn't have to be, it'll be who whoever's second most liked of all the waifus who wins the Herb bowl. But worry not Anon route locks are far away.
>>1391441People tend to forget that's she's all bravado and still a virgin. The thing is, she's goading herb because she WANTS to be claimed like a fairy princess. She's got acceptance and body issues.

You wake up the next morning more sore than ever. Your legs especially feel like you might have pulled something. You can’t believe that happened.“Hey dildo.” Laki walks in from the shower, drying her hair. “Sleep well?”“Yeah. You?”“Very relaxed.” She stretches. “What’s for breakfast? And what are you smiling about?” She can’t help but smile as she asks.“Nothing. You just still have that cute smile.” you state plainly. It sounds corny, but it’s true.She takes her towel off, and throws it over your face. “Shut up!” Her voice still has that high pitched, embarrassed tone. “Don’t get the wrong idea, Dildo. I took what I wanted for as long as I wanted, so don’t get all sappy or weird, okay? Because Valerie’s next.” She removes the towel from your face for you since you were struggling. Her face softens a little. “But you did a good job, so I might just take you again another time. Maybe we’ll go farther. We’ll see.” Her tone is much loftier and happier than her words, but you get her meaning. “Shower and get dressed, because you’ve got a big breakfast to cook. I bet you’re as hungry as I am, too.”You follow her instructions, still pretty content from last night. Dad really meant what he told you about girls in Loanah. You should call him and check in. Laki’s gone when you get out of the shower. Everyone is gathered in the kitchen and getting ready to split up after breakfast. You let Bella back out, since you almost forgot you put her away last night.“I’ll still come with you to your contest.” Hana tells Valerie. “I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”“Thanks!” Valerie smiles. “I think I’m going to go home for a quick visit.” Polu says while stuff down a pancake. “Then I’ll go to Huka after.”Valerie nods. “Where are you three going? If it’s on the way to Huka, I can give you a ride.”Keira looks to you. “I’m good with anything.”“Tabo is pretty nice this time of year.” Laki says. “But yeah, good with anything here too.” Other than being extra relaxed and doing a little humming this morning, she seems completely unchanged from last night.>The fisherman’s cousin’s small island>Tabo, the nearest island>Back home to Kaitwe for a visit>Kontote, Polu’s home island>Somewhere else

>>1391680>>The fisherman’s cousin’s small islandFinish the side quest so we can bond with Dice while he swims in the lake while we feed Gobble the fish we catch. Maximum comfy.
>>1391680>>Tabo, the nearest island>>1391701Honestly. It seems like an error. Like Almost Kiera levels of out of touch.
I kind of hope Herb gets dragged into Laki's conquest of val. not to participate, but like just stuck in the room and can't leave for some reason
>>1391742Why? That sounds horrible.
>>1391701Understandable. There's a person attatched to that dick, you know? Laki's just trying to appear secure after we rocked her last night. Putting us down shouldn't be the way to do that, but it's understandable.That said, I don't like it either and wish greatly that we can be romantic before we get lewd. It'd help if we weren't so remarkably attractive to these girls.
>>1391742According to Gobble, Laki's working on building her mainlander harem. There's gonna be a white bread sandwich down the line
>>1391742Literal cuck plz go
>>1391742>>1391701agreed, it's not even a good nickname. At least soft hands wasn't a literal object
Oh before we take off, should we talk with Val and do another 'become more outgoing' challenge with each other?
>>1391680>The fisherman’s cousin’s small islandSure, let's do this. Especially since Hana agreed to help us finish the rod.>lewd stuffI'm looking forward to the bin, but man is Laki's attitude a turn-off.
>>1391680>The fisherman's cousin's small island.That alone will get me voting against lewding the Laki again anytime soon.
>>1391770At least she probably won't call us Dildo in front of everyone else.>>1391772After all these casual hookups, can Herb become any more outgoing? We're challenging pirates and earning badges and learning aura and touching girls and getting fit. What else can Herb even do? Will himself taller?>>1391776Join me on the Keira side. (But yeah, Hana's overtaken Laki for #2 for certain for me now. Perhaps my attitude will change after reading the bin proper, but I'm not expecting it.)
I can't help but feel Gobble is taking sides in a waifu war. Let me point some things out: >Laki insults us, first thing she's said to us all thread. >Immediately get a worse nickname after a very tender moment shared between two people. I really don't want to accuse you of anything Gobble, but it almost seems planned to make us not like her and pick someone else. I honestly can't think of anyone besides Jane who's done worse things. Like Hana is basically anon's perfect waifu and can do no wrong, Val is really kind and forgiving and Keira had a brief period of uneasiness around Herb but was immediately forgiven. It seems like you're just making the other options more palatable, and when we vote to spend time with or do something with Laki you write her in an obnoxious way that's almost guaranteed to make someone mad. Now I hate accusations, I really honestly do, but I'm just putting this out there. It's kind of emotionally manipulative, and I really hope I'm wrong. Hopefully that was eloquent enough to not sound like bitching and moaning.
>>1391798Well Val seems like she's still a bit reserved, figured it would be more of a supportive gesture. Maybe she'll think of something that we haven't though of. Doesn't have to be 'outgoing' challenge, could just be a fun challenge
>>1391798Hana's my #1, but Keira's good too. Laki's been my least favorite for a while now, to be honest. I didn't dislike her, and still don't, because I like her as a character, but this solidified her even more so as the girl I'd least like for Herb to end up with.My personal order is Hana > Val = Keira = Jane > Laki. The non-Laki spots are actually fairly close, because they've all got some very strong points.>>1391804Laki's acting like she always does. This is entirely in-character for her. That kind of blows any chance of Gobble taking sides out of the water. This is just the sort of person Laki is.
>>1391804I don't think it's Gobble taking sides, they're just accurately portraying Laki's reaction to being vulnerable. She doesn't want to appear vulnerable, so she tries to make the moment they had seem insignificant. It's her way of taking back controlI'm a massive Keirafag though, so I might be biased.
>>1391830Laki hasn't literally called people sex objects though, that is kind of a turnoff for me and I've had Laki as number 1 since the start.
>>1391804Don't even try it nigga.You guys voted to screw the pootch too early, and this is your reward.I mean how did you not see this shit from a mile away?Did you just think giving into temptation like that wouldnt lead to any negative consequences?Really dude, focus up.
>>1391841I don't think Gobble is taking sides either, but why doesn't Hana have anything negative for giving a blow job?
>>1391836Well said >>1391839That's what I noticed as well, it seems a bit to ham fisted for the character we've learned about. >>1391841This>>1391856Why should there be Negative consequences? And like, she's still my #1, but hopefully this leads into us having an emotional conversation. But I don't think anons are willing to try, which is why I'm worried. Once people get mad they tend to stubbornly refuse to interact or fix a situation.
>>1391839I mean, again, none of this is a surprise to me. Laki made it pretty clear what sort of person she was (and just for clarification, that's not saying she's a bad person) right off the bat, and has stuck with that whenever the topic of sex comes up. She's treated Val like a notch to be put on her headboard, and has repeatedly talked about how she's just interested in taking what she wants.Again, this doesn't make her a bad person or anything like that, but this attitude shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone when it's perfectly in line with how she's acted since thread one.>>1391856Because giving a blowjob isn't an inherently negative act? Both of them wanted it and consented to it, it was in-character for Hana to do it, and the fallout from that is Hana still feeling worried that she's some sort of turbo-slut.
>>1391856>>1391877It's all about what character and when anon.When we fool around with Hana its always on equal footing. You are two lost souls going through your sexual awakening shit at the same time. But Laki's WHOLE DEAL is that she uses her body in order to gain emotionally leverage over others because of her own self esteem problems.
>>1391895Exactly. If this came as a surprise to anyone, or it's caused people to suddenly see Laki in a negative light, those people haven't been paying attention to the sort of Laki very openly is.And I like Laki. I think she's interesting, and she adds a lot to the story, but this is why she's been at the bottom of my list since the beginning.
>>1391916Oh you mean the Laki that easily gets flustered in her internal thoughts about sex?
>>1391895>except she's never actually had sex or done this before. And that's where you're wrong, EVERYONE is going through their sexual awakening. >>1391916And no, I'm not seeing her in any light then the one I normally have. I'm not angry, far from it, I was just voicing a concern that I had.
>>1391925If that's the only side you see of her, to the point that any of this came as a surprise to you, then you haven't been paying enough attention to her character. You've just been fixating on the parts you like about it.>>1391931My bad, I wasn't referring to what you said. You didn't seem angry at all.
>>1391925she is still confident and is happy to use her body to put Herb off balance.
“I think we should visit the fisherman’s cousin.” You say. “I want to take care of that favor.”Hana collects your breakfast plate. “You don’t want to feel like you’re not working to repay someone.”“Yeah!” You look up at her. The two of you share a bit of a smile. She gets it. And now you get what she was saying to you before a little better. You feel like you can really pick up on her meanings, even when she’s being subtle like that. Like last night where she was hinting that...Oh jeez. You’re an idiot. She was obviously hinting that she wanted to help with new fashion items for your pokemon.“That’s a good idea.” Keira agrees, leaning over to your pokedex. She points to the map. “It should be close.”“Great! I’ll give you a ride, then.” Valerie says. “Herb, can you come help me?”You don’t know why she’d need your help with the yacht, but you don’t question it. You gently remove Dice from your lap and get up to follow her to the control room. She closes the door behind you.“So what’s the next challenge?” She asks eagerly. “I’ve been racking my brain for a good one for you, but I want to hear yours first.”That’s a good question. What can you do to help Valerie get more out of her shell?>Challenge her to dance with someone>Challenge her to do some public speaking>Challenge her to share another intimate secret with someone>Something else>Tell her about your two encounters
>>1391856Hana's brain is on full alarm screaming (don't screw this up! don't screw this up! don't let him see how slutty you are and make him think less of you!) but also (TAKE HIM TO THE B O N E Z O N E ! NOW IS YOUR CHANCE, TAKE IT BITCH!) She's clearly reaching new levels of spaghetti over it. Girl's unsure how to act.Laki's got her own reaction, which is "don't let him think you're not an invincible goddess or he'll look down on you like everyone else." But she's not actually confident, she's faking it. She props up her persona by being casual to the point of callousness. She wants us to think she does this sort of thing all the time because she's super cool like that. Like Jane, some more emotional honesty would seriously push up my ranking of Laki. Laki was ranked highly for me at first because she was willing to maker herself vulnerable in our first one-on-one scene with her.
I like Laki. Ive been on the Laki boat since thread one. I'm starting to shift though. She's been getting more and more abrasive as we go. It's gone from playful and charming in its own way to abrasive.I feel like Herb need a to have a serious talk about where they stand. As friends or whatever else. As much as she does obviously like him, she certainly doesnt seem to respect him at all. No relationship can last without respect. I think Herb should stop with the massages. And if not stopping, atleast keeping it professionally distant.I dont know. Hopefully the bin will put some context on it and change my mind. Kind of doubt it though.It would probably help if, whenever Laki said something insulting or demeaning to Herb, we stopped voting to 'man up to the challenge' and voted to react appropriately offput.
>>1391945>Challenge her to dance with someone
>>1391945>Challenge her to dance with someoneHerb's not a kiss-and-tell. He's a gentleman.
>>1391945>>Challenge her to dance with someoneValerie is for tender loving and care.
>>1391945>Challenge her to dance with someone>>1391959Well said all around. I agree with all of this.
>>1391945>>Challenge her to do some public speaking
>>1391945>Challenge her to do some public speaking
>>1391945>>Challenge her to dance with someone
>>1391959I can get behind it.
>>1391945>>Challenge her to dance with someoneSomething like flamenco
>>1391945>Challenge her to do some public speakingAlso, I feel like we should tell her about what Herb did with Laki last night. No details, but ita been pretty clear Val' s been into her and I'd feel really bad if this came out and she thought we were going behind her back or something.
>>1391945>>Challenge her to dance with someone>>1391959agreed, some time soon there needs to be a hear to heart talk with her. Not sure if I'll like the outcome, but we need to put a line in the sand and make her act like the person Mr. Rogers knows she can be
>>1392001I think we should give Herb a chance to collect his thoughts and figure out how he feels about it before that, but after that I definitely agree that we should tell Valerie about it. She's our friend, and a good one, at that. I for one don't want to see her get hurt, or to have a secret get in the way of our friendship somewhere down the road.
>>1391945>>Challenge her to do some public speaking>>1391952well said >>1391959I'm hoping we can have another heart to heart, but will see
>>1391959I agree. Keep things gentle but firm though. No flying off the handle. Explain that you've clearly proven yourself (challenging pirates, fighting dragons, petting sharks, 100% winrate against gym leaders, gaining superpowers) and she should find a more fitting nickname. Explain we don't want her thinking of us as incapable.And yeah, hold out on the lewding too. While my optimum is Herb holding out for romance, I'll gladly take holding out for evenness in the relationship.Of course, we definitely need the context of having read the bin first.>>1392012>>1392010Laki's been really good about setting expectations with Val I think. If Val wants exclusiveness, I'm pretty sure she'll know to ask for it.
>>1392037>Of course, we definitely need the context of having read the bin first.Hopefully that helps some. I think, this is personal mind, that I'm not used to Nuanced characters in quests. Any other quest that would've been a waifu lock and Laki would probably have taken a 180 in attitude. Even in OG Pokemon quest we stuck with one waifu for so long we never really did get to experience some of the nuance in a relationship. Also it's kind of a reverse Kat x Robin situation, with us on the other end. which is kinda odd.
>>1391959I'm down for the whole talk it out deal, but i don't think we really have a leg to stand on right now. It's not like she pressed us any harder than usual, we simply didn't have the will to fight back cause people where thinking with thier dicks.What are we even supposed to say to her?"I've been doing some thinking and i regret giving you the lobster claw, can we just forget that happened and undo threads worth of development because we are moving toooo fast."To be honest I'm salty as fuck, and already sick of the emotional bullshit this is gonna bring about, but i think we need to make sure we make slight adjustments instead of jumping the gun the other direction.
>>1392037Has she been good about setting expectations? I'm genuinely asking, because all I can remember at the minute are instances of her copping a feel or talking about how she's going to get Val in bed. I can't recall any time boundaries were ever even brought up or even a factor for her. That doesn't mean it hasn't happened, but like I said, I'm drawing a blank.Also regardless, we should still fill our good friend in, just in case she had any expectations of exclusivity.
>>1392061We talk about what was mentioned before, because we totally do have a platform.
>>1392058It's interesting, for sure. I prefer it this way, though. Realistically flawed characters are more interesting, even if you come out of it not wanting to stick your dick into them.>>1392061I mean, I think our platform is "You're being kind of a bitch, and I don't appreciate it, whether or not we decide to continue lewd things." It couldn't be simpler, and it doesn't even need to be and big emotional thing. Just set some ground rules for how we're willing to be treated.
>>1392061You need to read what people have been saying, the primary problem right now is that they don't like the new nickname.
>Leave for a half hour>People want to lynch lakiJesus. The dildo comment came off as hamfisted domineering to me not trying to put Herb down.I think she's just bad at pet names. I mean she's been calling him soft hands forever. But I'm cool with a heart to heart.
>>1392062I think the names were meant to be switched. Val has made it clear that she expects to be treated as a girlfriend, rather than a hookup
>>1392061I don't think the problem is anything sexual. I'm just thinking we should ask to be treated with a little more respect. Less belittling nicknames.>>1392062See this exchange. It's brief compared to the rest of the quest, but clear to me.“No. I’m sorry. I just, it’s so fast! And I don’t know how you feel about me.” You’d probably be more into girls if they didn’t get so sappy. You give her space and move back. “I told you. I’m just in it for this.” You lift your finger for her to smell. ”Look, I didn’t mean to make you fall for me. I thought I was being clear about what I want.” “I didn’t. Fall for you, I mean.” “Good.” She didn’t have to say it so quickly, though. “But you don’t have a crush on me?” “I don’t think I can be clearer about that. I, Laki of Akaneki, don’t have romantic feelings for you.” You try not to sound too annoyed. She’s scared and everything. But still, talk about mixed signals. “So it’s just lust because I’m blonde? Do...have you done anything with Herb?” “Not yet.” “Will you?” You fold your arms. “If the mood strikes me. Why?” You’re really starting to like teasing him, but you’re sure if you took the poor little guy, you’d physically destroy him. Then again, he’s been working out...>>1392103No, Val's thoughts I'm uncertain on.>>1392101Basically yeah, I just want to tell her that her nicknames for us are unappreciated/bad, and she should find better ones.
>>1392061"Laki, we did something really special last night. It really meant something to me, and when the first thing you did this morning was call me a dildo, well, I was hurt. I guess i shouldnt have let it go as far as we did last night, but i guess i do stupid things when i feel like someone is questioning my manhood. Thats my issue and i need to deal with it. Still, i think we should stop the massages for a while until we figure out where we stand with eachother. I like you, I think we could be good friends, but I dont feel like you respect me, and i dont know what to do about that."That seems pretty good to me. I'm sure someone could improve it though. I'm terrible at creative writing.
>>1392115>Basically yeah, I just want to tell her that her nicknames for us are unappreciated/bad, and she should find better ones.It really doesn't have to be any more complicated or heated than that.
>>1392101I mean, personally, I'm not really upset at all. I was kind of trying voice something that maybe others were feeling. iunno, probably should've kept my mouth shut.
“That’s a good one!” She clasps her hands. “I’m scared just thinking about it!”Valerie can be a little strange sometimes, but that’s okay. She’s nice. And the more time goes on, the less you feel you can judge. “Great! What about me?”She puts both hands on your shoulders. “Kiss a girl.”“Kiss a girl?”She nods, then thinks. “Or a boy. I see the way you look at Polu.”You have no idea how to respond to that.“Kidding! Sorry. I’m trying a new thing.” She removes her hands. “Oh no, I didn’t say something awkward did I? Because if there is something between you and Polu that’s fine too.”“There’s nothing between me and Polu.” You’re not offended, just confused.“Well, the important thing is to kiss someone. I know you and Hana had your time in the closet and something happened, but I mean to do it without any pretenses of a game. If that’s going to far, you can forget that and just tell someone your biggest fear instead. Me, if you want.”“I’ll think about it.” You tell her. A lot’s happened in the last few days and you really don’t think you’ve been able to fully digest it all.She opens the door and heads off into the inside of the ship. You stay out and watch the waves while holding onto the rails. You don’t get much time though, before a slap on the rear brings you right out of your thoughts.“Hey there, dildo. How are you doing?” Laki takes the spot next to you and gives you a smile. “Whatcha thinking about?Bella comes running to catch up. Laki lifts her up so she can get a better view of the ocean.>Nothing>About that nickname...>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respect>Tease her back. Call her by a teasing nickname (write-in suggested)>Something else
>>1392101I like Soft Hands as a nickname.
>>1392115Oh yeah, the bin. It's all coming back to me now. Thanks for the refresher>>1392124No, not this. It wasn't special, and this is super cringy.>>1392128Exactly. No need for a huge speech or anything. This summarizes it just fine.
>>1392136>About that nickname...
>>1392136>>About that nickname...
>>1392136>About that nickname..
>>1392136>About that nickname...>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respect
>>1392136>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respectI think the nickname is a symptom of a general lack of respect, and this is a good chance to nip it in the bud.
>>1392136>About that nickname...>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respectThen>Tease her back.
>>1392136>>About that nickname...Stahp. Find better.
>>1392136>About that nickname...>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respectSome stuff from this>>1392124If others think any of its usable.
>>1392136Fuck I thought I was gonna get to read the bin first for context.Okay, um...>About that nickname...>Please don't call me dildo. It's weird. Also, I think I've earned something a bit cooler than soft hands.
>>1392124gonna go with naaaaah but writing dialogue is pretty hard
>>1392143I was afraid of that.Was any of it decent?
>>1392136>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respectIt's a bit dehumanizing to be called a dildo, Herb doesn't need that kind of stuff, especially if we end up in a relationship with Laki.
>>1392160No, between Hana and Laki, all Herb is probably feeling right now is confusion and possibly guilt.Something like 'it was fun and all but let's ease up some.'And if she gives us shit, stand up for ourselves, no matter how hard it might be. This is serious.
>>1392136>>About that nickname...>Firmly but gently confront her about her lack of respectI like you. But Dildo is incredibly disparaging.
>>1392176Yeah, good call. I'll support that.>>1392171I mean, none of it was incorrect, aside from calling what they did special. It just came across like something that was being blurted out all in one breath, and it didn't really feel natural.
>>1392171I think the tone was too formal,rehearsed, and made it sound like we were scolding a child. You've gotta cut quickly to the core of the issue so it doesn't turn out like a lecture. For instance, don't talk about the lewd when the point is respect. Furthermore, don't tell people how they feel. Saying "you're not respecting me like you should" is accusatory. Saying "I don't feel like you respect me when you call me Dildo" is better, because it's more specific and doesn't assume that you know her internal world. Be even briefer and informal if possible. "Please don't call me dildo, I don't like it." Or even better: "I'm not liking the new nickname." Brief, informal, unassuming, specific.Of course, writing realistic dialogue is different from writing diplomatic dialogue.
>>1392194On my defense, it wasn't supposed to be one line, but a general summary of what could be said. I wrote it in response to the other anon asking what we could even say to her after giving her the "lobster claw". But I fully admit I'm bad at writing dialogue. That's why I avoid writeins.
Yeah. I'm frankly wondering if even though she's been out in the world... and is more worldly than the other islanders if she doesn't realize how Dildo sounds.
>>1392199Alternatively, we could get our point across by calling her "fleshlight" or "pocketpussy", but that doesn't seem like the Herb thing to do.In all likelihood, Laki is probably trying to express some level of familiarity and intimacy by giving us a special nickname she only uses alone with us, one she knows we know she wouldn't use in public. Something special that just the two of us share. It might hurt to have that rejected. But Herb needs to stick up for himself.>>1392217Yeah, it's tough writing write-in dialogue when you can't know what the other person is going to say. You can really only write the first line in the conversation, and hope that guides things as you predicted.
>>1392231>>1392136If it turns out Laki somehow doesn't know what she's been calling us and we have to explain, how do we explain how we know?Blackmail material on sis or an awkward find in mum's closet and an even more awkward talk?Either of those could be funny reading and it'd help break the tension.The look on Laki's face would be worth it as well.
>>1392217No worries, man. I appreciate you being so cool about my critique.
>>1392263I can't improve if I can't accept my faults.
>>1392271That's very Herb of you Anon. I of course mean that in a good way.
I hope this talk about nicknames leads us to talk about why we have our chosen name.
>>1392322Because the Colonel was already taken and we used to obsess over recreating the eleven secret herbs and spices.
>>1392337Fem Herb needs to be called Spice.
>>1392337This is canon now.

“About that nickname...”“What about it, dldo?” “Can you stop calling me that?”“Hey, that’s fine. No problem. Plenty of other things I can call you.” She gives you a gentle bump with her hip. “String bean. Barbarian. Princess.”You look over to her for a moment. You’re not sure what sort of face you're making, but from her reaction it’s not a nice one. You’re actually surprised to see her break eye contact. “I feel like you’re missing the point. I feel like you don’t respect me.” You look away now too. You don’t know how to say what you want to say. “You’re always putting me down with names and calling me a wuss or something.”She keeps looking out to see few a few agonizing moments. Is she going to respond?She puts Bella down. The little grass pokemon “You’re right. I guess I just feel a little exposed and want to take control of the situation. But I guess I forgot that you feel exposed and vulnerable too.” She glances over. “That’s not meant to be an excuse. I knew it bugged you, I just didn’t know it bugged you this much. Sorry. I guess don’t really have a good sense of where the limits are.”You’re about to tell her all is forgiven, but she keeps going.“It’s hard, you know? Even though I’m older, everyone else has themselves sorted out better. And I’m always the bad guy. It’s always, ‘Laki, don’t grope me right now.’ or ‘Laki, stop picking fights with Jane’ or ‘Laki, don’t call people robocop or dildo.’ I can’t get anything right. And you know what’s worse? If I don’t act like that, I’m invisible. I hate how everyone looks at me sometimes, but I hate the thought of not being noticed at all even more. And I know how selfish that is and how I’m basically just annoying everyone into validating my existence or whatever you want to call it and I’m too scared to stop. And I feel even weirder and out of place because almost all of you have the opposite problem of being too scared to be noticed.” She takes a deep breath. “Wow. That all just sort of poured out. And I totally just made it about myself.” She looks out to the sea again. “You don’t deserve some condescending nickname. I’ll stop. And you’re not unmanly, Herb. You’re the manliest, bravest guy I know. In every sense of the word.” Her eyes glance down to your shorts for a second. “And now I’m changing the subject and attention by putting it on your junk. Please start talking so I’ll shut up.”>You can still call me soft hands>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out.

>>1392361>You can still call me soft hands>We're all figuring this stuff out.>And you’re not unmanly, Herb. You’re the manliest, bravest guy I know. In every sense of the word.Probably the nicest thing anyone's said to him. It's the perfect time to ruin it by crying.Back on the Laki boat.
>>1392361>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine>You should stop massages until she figures herself outAnd I'll add a vote for compliments if a good one comes up. We probably should make some space to sort things out though.
>>1392361>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine>Compliment her (write-in suggested)You don't have to do anything to stand out, Laki. You are an amazing person.>You can still call me soft handsOr call me Herb. Nothing wrong with nicknames. Just how you use them.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>1392354You ask, you receive.
>>1392361>>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine>Compliment her (You're the strongest toughest person I know, you're also really nice when you actually let go of all the insecurities go. Stop worrying about always being in control, no one is just do your best. With that straight up unfair body of yours I doubt you'll ever be invisible. Also you're cute when you ramble.)
>>1392376I like this.
>>1392361>You can still call me soft hands>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine >Compliment her
>>1392361Oh god Laki's like my dad.>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine>There's no right rate or way to grow up.>Compliment her>I trust you a lot, you know? And I don't think I'm a bad judge of character. I care what you think because you're important to me. Give yourself some credit too, you know? You do watch out for me an awful lot, and I appreciate that.And maybe:>Pick what you wanna do and do it as best you can and you'll stand out, in sure if it.
>>1392361Hey gobble I just want to point out, that stopping the massages is in the minority, so please don't add that. Pretty please
>>1392361>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine>You can still call me soft handsSoft hands is a good one.>Compliment her (write-in suggested)She's beautiful and when she's not being critical she's actually pretty funny.We know she's a good person, and Bella knows too.She needs to let people notice her because of that and not just lash out when she's not the center of attention
>>1392361Oh, also,>She puts Bella down. The little grass pokemon How was that thought going to end Gobble?>>1392384Yes, crying at the compliment please!>>1392419Massages are good, but I'd like to see Herb sort out his thoughts on casual lewds before doing more lewds.
>>1392364Anyone who says KFC is better than Popeyes either hasn't eaten popeyes or has no soul and should be destroyed.
>>1392429[The little grass pokemon scurries back into the ship, looking for trouble.]
>>1392435Oh dear god....Bella joined Team Rocket?!
>>1392435>Herb and Laki are talking, can only be good.>Better go find something else to doOn the other side of the ship mace feels a sudden chill run down his spine
>>1392361>hold her hand
>>1392404This.With the exception of the dad bit.
>>1392425I also like this.
>>1392361>“What about it, dldo?”Also, that's a butt. Got that one picture of the girl sitting on a magnemite?
>>1392548[One butt, coming up]
>>1392573I think this one was used a few threads back, but it might've been someone giving it to you...
I was worried fell asleep but the thread is still up. What ended up winning mouth or hand stuff?
>You can still call me soft hands>Hey, we’re all figuring stuff out. It’s fine >Compliment her
>>1392594Knowing Gobble, I'm thinking both. I'm hoping for touching.
“Do you really mean that?” You try not to choke. “You think I’m manly?” Don’t cry when you’re being called manly!“Yeah. I mean you stand up to dragons. And when you’re not standing up to Jane you’re even fighting Dragon pokemon.”You laugh. You feel a little guilty because you don’t really like insulting people behind their back, but Laki can be funny like that.“But it’s not bravado or just picking a fight like I always see back home. You put yourself out there to try to help everyone. And you don’t even do it for attention or anything either. Who challenges pirates to a fashion contest? Who feeds a pokemon that tried to eat them? Who does what you did for Hana and everything else?”You’re not sure what to say. “I just do what I feel like I should.”“Exactly.” She pokes you in the chest. “That’s being a man. Trust me on this, I come from the island of men.”“Thanks.” You feel really touched, but you don’t want to look anything short of stoic right now.“It’s okay.” She sniffs “It’d make me feel less self-conscious and crummy.”You wipe that tear from her eye. “You shouldn’t feel that way. We’re all figuring stuff out. There's no right rate or way to grow up.”She laughs a little. “That’s why you’re the sweet guy everyone trusts and pays attention to. You always know what to say.”“Thanks. But you’re not bad yourself. You’re pretty funny when you’re not being critical. And I think everyone pays attention to you anyway.”“Why’s that?”You motion over her whole body, but mostly her face. “You’re pretty. And beautiful.” It’s a statement of fact, so it comes out easily. “And cute. Which one depends on what sort of face you’re making at the time.”She tears up again. “Come on. You don’t mean that. You’re just saying that because I’m always teasing you.” She pokes your crotch. Even after last night that still makes you jump a little.“It’s true!” You adjust the hair from her face. “And you’re a good person. I know you’re always looking out for me and the others. Bella knows, too.” When she smiles, you point to her face. “That smile right there, that’s the cute one.”That just makes her smile anymore. “Jeez. That eager to get me back into bed, huh?” She shoves your shoulder. “Thank you.”The two of you look out into the sea for awhile. You’re not sure when it happens, but she ends up hugging you from behind while you watch the waves go bye.You can still call me soft hands if you want. I don’t mind that one.”“Good.” She rests her chin on your shoulder. “Keep me grounded, Soft Hands.”You her adjust a bit and wonder why, but the reason becomes obvious as you feel and hear Bella climbing from her back to the other side of your shoulder. She plants herself there to join the both of you.[Going to have to call it there. Thanks for coming, everyone.]
>>1392608Thanks for running gobble I'm not crying, I'm a man's man goddamnit
>>1392608Things worked out excellently. I don't know what everyone was worrying about.Thanks for running, Gobble!
>>1392608Thanks for running again GobbleSee ya next time
>>1392361>>1392425Came back late, supporting this.
>>1392608Well done, Gobble. I had faith in you. This thread hit all the feels. Thank you for running!
>>1392608Thanks for running
>>1392608Thanks for running Gobble! Have a good night!
>>1392608Cute. They really do make a good pair.Thanks for running Gobble! You sure know how to stir up emotions, don't you?Also, I'm not sure what Laki's referring to in this line.>“It’s okay.” She sniffs “It’d make me feel less self-conscious and crummy.”>That just makes her smile anymore.Should be "even more">You her adjust Forgot "feel"
>>1392608Skipped the last few, looks like I got back for some character development.Thanks for running, Gobble.
Laki leapt back up again. She's a good girl that just needs good, warm, wholesome Herbings.[\spoiler]
>>1392608All aboard the S.S. Laki!G oddamn Gobble. This was pretty much perfect.Are we getting a thread tomorrow?
Jane is best girl
>>1392687I agree with this man.
>>1392608>You can still call me soft hands if you want. I don’t mind that one.”Also, you forgot opening quotation marks here.
>>1392687>Jane is a girlftfy
>>1392889>Jane is best dragonFtftfy
>>1392893>best dragon>not hydreigon You take that back
Now would be the PERFECT time to give her a kiss & fulfill the Val challenge aswell as encourage this kind of Laki in future (cute musclefu instead of overcompensating), we can ask Val for a new 1 straight away before leaving.If not Laki, it'd be really fun to plant 1 on Jane (if there's a chance). We could try kissing Val would open her up abit. She'd freak out a little but she said "without any pretenses of game" and hopefully calm down, while opening up to us abit more which should help those Valfags in hiding in future, since Val hasn't really had much development for a while. Still voting for Jane above val though for the excellent Jane shenanigans that'd followI hope Laki was really cute last night in the lewdbin, making cute noises and biting her lip, maybe in a hushed voice begging herb for more and covering her face with a pillow if herb called her biting her lip cute, it'd make the nickname thing seem like even more of her trying to salvage her crumbling brovado (not personally bothered by the nickname, but it'd make alot of anons happy)>‘Laki, don’t grope me right now'That made me laugh
>>1392929nah, best time to fufill Val's challenge is after mingling auras with Keira
>>1393143Do you think she'd let it slide because she still feels bad about looking at herb's manhood? And wants to see it again
>>1393143She wants to learn about mainland customs & be colonized
>>1393155>>1393159we can show her the joys of handholding and having a bunch of kidsShe can show us the joys of aura mingling during sex
>>1392929Actually, I was thinking either Keira for romantic kissing or Hana for fun times kissing. Because it'll probably be a while yet before things get romantic, I think there's a decent chance we'll take our out.
I think it would be fun for Herb to get a Mime Jr.One because it's cuteAnd to it could help Herb get over his fears Though I'd never want it to evolveAnd three because it's cuuuuuuuute
>>1393602Hopefully we'll hatch one eventually.
>>1393631I don't get why you want another egg so much
>>1393640Herb being a papa is cute and I like mystery boxes and waiting.
>>1392915>>1392893>Forgetting about Mega Fug
>>1394260He isn't mega until we teach him how to make pancakes
>>1393602The spawn of satan is not cute.
>>1393602>I think it would be fun for Herb to get a Mime Jr.What, to cook and eat one? I'm pretty sure there's laws against that.
>>1393602>>1394833>>1394914I'd prefer a smoochum
>>1395097But.. when it evolves...
>>1395145Is it weird that I still like Jynx?
>>1395097a Magby could be cool to have, or a Victini
>>1396011Mystics and legendaries get out forever
>>1396063hey, late game pokemon are always a possibility.and Victini are cute af
>>1396162They suck and Victini is the nuclear bomb Pokemon. That shit can fuck right off as much as the UBs can.
>>1396171>not wanting to feed a little Victini his favorite flavor of macaroonwhy do you hate cute nuclear reactors anon?one could also make Herb a healing machine, as the infinite energy might allow him to heal a Robin-tier wound
>>1396196Because I dislike getting legiendaries enough in the games, in quest they are even stronger.
Magby would be nice, I like Bagon he'd look awesome with a red scarf. I also really like our Murkrow thread and honchkrow looks boss.
>>1397834either a Bagon or Shelgon would be fun, trying to make an outfit for a ball with legs would definitely be a challence
So, odd thought occurs: would our healing powers work to regenerate Hana's limbs? Or at least clear up her scars?Might also be worth making an anonymous request to the Robin Foundation about lighter prosthetics. Or ones designed for swimming.Also, if Hana gets more comfortable with herself, I could totally see her hiring a trio of Ditto to pretend to be her limbs on Halloween and terrify people with their help.
>>1400614I'm pretty sure Gobble said healing would never get that strong. Look at all the shit it took not just give Robin an eye last quest.
>>1400614It's probably take a wish-tier piece of legendary magic to restore limbs, and there are more important things to wish for.Scars aren't wounds. Unless it's healed wrong, and with the amount of medical attention she's gotten I doubt it has, there's not much we could do.If our healing could get rid of scars, it could probably reduce muscle mass too.Swimming limbs would be Real cool, though likely to be a long ways off.You do bring up a good point: what does lie at the ends of the branches of the healing skill tree? I'm guessing anti-disease (since we did heal a rash), energy transfer (to pump up an ally with our aura tank) and anti-healing (draining another's aura to heal ourselves/ replenish our aura.)What I really want to learn is aura massages like Jeneane did last quest. If/when Herb learns of such a thing, I think we should seek to study under a master.
>>1400745Z-moves, possibly? If Mega-Evo in this universe works using energy transfer via empathy, I've been trying to figure how Z-moves would work.I was thinking that it would require understanding a type to the point that you could change your aura entirely to that type, then send that energy to the pokemon in a similar way to Mega. The difference is that the energy for Mega is perfectly tailored to the pokemon receiving it, whereas this energy is charged purely with one particular type. They can't transform with it, but they can release it all at once with a single massively powerful attack: a Z-move. Provided, of course, that they know how to utilize that type's energy; i.e. they know a move of that type.Interestingly, this would mean that the Loana preisthood would be in a good position to know about and widely utilize Z-moves, at least in the upper echelons, since they dedicate themselves to a type and have both the discipline and knowledge of Aura to make that happen.Not sure about unique Z-moves though, which is a shame. Because I want to see Gobble using Pulverizing Pancake.
>>1401418Z-Moves are just big nukes that would make fights way too boring.
>>1401461Only if you look at it from a gameplay perspective. There's a reason that The Hero's Great Big Iconic Finishing Move is such a popular trope in anime.Also, status Z-moves could potentially make things interesting. I'm not suggesting we go and get an Eevee and never evolve it just for Extreme Evoboost Baton Pass shenanigans, but there's Mimikyu with Z-Splash (+3 Attack) or Z-Destiny Bond (has the effect of Follow Me tacked on).
>>1401612Z-Splash is just worse Swords Dance because it takes your item though. And I dislike super moves that just end the fight from the start
I've lost track, there's 3 bins we're looking forward to right? Girl talk, laki's massage and what else?
>>1407539Rule 63 Herb.
I want to get Herb a Pichu
>>1409436Missed that bus a loooooong time ago
>>1409453What about Pikachu?
I miss Gobble...
>>1410555There there. We'll hear something soon enough.There'll probably be smut, too.
>>1390449Is that island on the bottom left a dick?
>>1411376No its an island.
>>1411376Dive the archive on the earliest threads and you'll see a someone make that joke but with art.
>>1410555>>1410616[Heyo. I miss you too. Still alive. Been a busy week but we are on tomorrow and bins are in progress]
>>1411993I love you Gobble!how soon till the next bin? I've been waiting for that girl talk one for forever!
>>1411993Hey Gobble, not to be a nag, but could I get an answer to >>1392652 ?When Herb says "Thanks" and Laki says "It's okay. It'd make me feel less crummy." in response, it sounds awkward to me. I'm not certain if you forgot a sentence in between, mistyped a phrase, or if I'm just not understanding a particular aspect of human interaction.And, as always, thanks and hype!
>>1411993>I miss you too. >Still alive.
>>1412116[Girl talk should be done today or tomorrow.]>>1392608>>1412116[Good catch. I meant to set up a line or two where she noticed him holding back and assured him it's okay to show his feelings.]
