PURPS“You know, I wish we could just kill this thing and be done, is there such a thing as a simple job?” You complain, as the two of you loiter outside the carriage containing the sirens. “Well, yes. This just isn’t one.” Verde states simply, looking a bit bored. Suppose it’s better than both of you being frustrated. “If it helps, I’m annoyed, too- but all yelling is gonna do is ruin my blood pressure.”“Vhen Lex told you about this, he did say that this vas important.” Honamurei says chidingly, “Vhat did you think he brought you here to look tough and scare people off?” Luc pipes in after a huge yawn, “She’s right. Master Lexington wouldn’t divert us if it wasn’t important.”You look to Verde for support from this two pronged attack and the mercenary looks up from waving her… thing at the ceramic sword. “They’re right. Neither of us would be here if it was just some bandits or stalker. That would be below my pay grade and likely none of your concern.”You don’t let your impassive face crack, but the smug smile from Hona makes it clear she knows she’s at least irked you a little.> [CONTENTMENT] Take Luc to bed> [DETERMINATION] Ask Verde how she wants to rotate watches> [FRUSTRATION] Flop down into bed in Sirens’ carriage> Write-InStar Details:Tw: @StarbornQCs:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1csg7vC-Yz10aAqk9ZwdCNv24obLGTtM5p6bKkPq1Pgc/edit#heading=h.74gk3dg6mvjpStarborn Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=StarbornPastebin: http://pastebin.com/u/StarbornOPHandler Details:MGFH Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20For%20Hire%20Quest Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/u/MGFHQHandlerTwitter: https://twitter.com/MGFHandlerDiscord Invite: https://discord.gg/xM2aCYq

It will be my Lewdbin that hosts the high impact sexual violence.But Handler will get to write the ensuing kidnapping inconspicuous departure.
>>1468221>> [DETERMINATION] Ask Verde how she wants to rotate watches
>>1468238>>1468291>>1468323I'M WRITING, I'M WRITING! *sound of muttering curses*
>>1468221>>1468238>>1468291>>1468323MIRANDA“Alright, so how are we going to rotate watches?” Hm. Good question.“I’m thinking five hours on, five off?” Before you can receive any sort of confirmation either way, a blur flashes across your vision, and then Purps is gone from your vision, the yellow-headed girl suddenly at the door of their particular wagon with an ear to ear grin on her face as she carries Purps bridal-style.“Sounds like an excellent idea! Perhaps you can take virst watch!” She doesn’t even give you the opportunity to debate the arrangement as she quickly darts inside, nearly slamming the door behind her.You eyeball the kid up top, who’s looking in that direction with a confused smile on his face. “They like this a lot?”He smiles and shrugs. “Only recently.” “Figures. Honeymooning still.” No wonder they kept making gaga eyes towards each other. You still don’t like all these distractions of hers...a couple of seconds pass as you mentally complain to yourself before you get into position, hopping up on the roof of the carriage next to the boy- he seems to start to say something, but quiets himself. You’re kinda impressed that a kid like that is holding a sniper rifle so steadily. Usually the smaller tykes go for easier to carry stuff- pistols, normally. Submachine guns in a pinch. Seen a superstrong kid with a gatling gun a few times- that was always amusing sight. Snipers, though? Those were rare.>Hm. So, you use that thing often? Any good with it?>Kid looks tired. If he wants to stay and nap up here he can as long as he doesn’t bug you.>Send the boy on his way. Sniper or not, you haven’t accounted for him.>Other

has this been back for a while?been months or weeks since i last read.Did the OP Picture get changed? fuck, no wonder i've missed so many threads
>>1468376You got time, get caught up!
nah fuck that, its a good time to stop reading starborn and im sure as fuck not reading the other shittier quest. Fuck you for convincing me to give your quest a shot, Starborn OP, fuck you
>>1468416There has been several original Starborns that led up to this crossover. I hope you don't drop and stick with it there's a lot of stuff in there that I think is really good and is totally worth it.Just remember purple anon.- Star
>>1468442I refuse to keep reading purps lesbian adventures and other starborns like that that you've done.Honestly i should have stopped reading a long time ago but i had fun infuriating the dice gods and rolling nat 1s for purps, except that one time when frank got eviscerated. I mean, your writtings good so if you do another quest i'll try for a bit but its been a long time since the last purps thread so I think now is a good time to stop reading. shes not getting with luc after all and hona keeps getting thrown in purps face to an annoying degree. Last thing before i go, some advice.When you're done taking votes, feel free to announce you are writing to the audience
>>1468476No problem mate, I understand those criticisms.Let me throw out my other quests in case they tickle your fancy.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Cabinhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=what+came+nextI'm sorry if you feel Purps x Hona isn't realistic or poorly written and I in fact welcome the chance to improve if you have any feedback.I appreciate you reading as long as you have man, I hope one of my other quests catches your interest.You can also join the discord or talk to me on twatter if you want to say anything else.

>>1468349>>1468354>>1468372“So, you find yourself using that a lot?” You ask, nodding at the huge rifle in his arms. Seemed to be...what was that, bolt action? You don’t think so.He smiles, as if something’s funny. “Only recently.” Cute. If completely unhelpful.“What do you mean? You’re not some savant with the thing, are you?” Really, if he was, that’d be interesting enough. Firearms proficiency usually doesn’t happen as young as that without a lot of practice.“Well, up until recently…” he trails off looking distraught and tearing up slightly, “I used to use swords.” Luc makes an attempt at recovering, flashing a big, forced smile- even you can tell it’s faker than the puppets you’ve been fighting. “Plus, we tend to attract trouble. Some religions think Starborn are harbingers of evil.”If that wasn’t common as dirt. “Yeah? Any reason for that, or is it just crazy religious nutjobs?”The boy pauses, putting a finger to his lips then snatching it away like… well a kid caught in the cookie jar, “Well, if you want to get deep about it, we could talk about human nature. Beat bigger fish, become the bigger fish…”Yeah, been there, beat that, paying dues. “I’m not interested in a philosophy lesson, kid, I was just wondering if there was anything extra I’d need to keep in mind. Frankly, I can’t say I much give a rip who or what you are. Seen too much to care anymore.” Besides, any philosophy wouldn’t even apply to you...you think. You’re not sure you’d WANT it to apply to you anymore.“Well. In terms of what you need to know about us? Honamurei used to be a guard, I’m attendant to the town she used to work for, and since Purps doesn’t remember or know anything - she’s not working for anyone but Master Lexington right now.” He yawns again, but puts his hands on his chin, “I don’t think you’re from up North like you say you are, though.” If his face weren’t so innocent, that’d probably sound like an accusation or a threat. As it is, you’re kinda impressed with his gumption. “What makes you think that?”“Well. You haven’t called us vampires.” You have to WORK to conceal a laugh at that. You’ve seen vampires. You’ve seen a LOT of vampires. These two are NOT vampires of any sort. “I know it’s dumb. But everyone North of Malaz calls Starborn vampires. We’re the bad guys of their faith.”cont.
>>1468607You just cock an eyebrow at that. You’re not even certain how to respond to something like that. “Keep going. Any other tall tales?”“Purps killed a dragon. That was pretty cool.” He sounds pretty proud of that one. You recall hearing something like that earlier, you think. “And well, Master Lexington taught my Dad and Mum. Then…” He looks despondent, “He did his duty to the Republic, against something which can’t happen again. He was a hero and I shouldn’t avoid talking about him.”Hm. “Got dealt a shit hand and had to play it, huh?” You sigh as you lean back a bit- if you smoked, this would probably be about when you took a long drag. “Can’t say that’s not a feeling I’ve had. Kinda defines why I am where I am. But, hell with it. Nothing for crying about it. Just have to live how you can. At least, that’s what I took away from it.” A spark of thought hits you, and the words are out before you can regret them. “Better the choice is made for you, if you ask me. Gives you an excuse. ‘Did what I had to. No other way.’ All that soothing stuff. What can really bite at you, though?” You frown- at yourself, mostly. “When you do it and think ‘I could’ve done that different. I didn’t have to lose that. I just did it because that’s what was easiest.’”“I’m not going to let it stop me… um, I didn’t get your name.” You just look at him, but say nothing in particular. He blinks once, then keeps speaking. “But with or without my Dad, I’m going to get stronger. I’m going to be a great captain. I’m going to make Minerva mine and then I’m going to do something to stop devils being summoned.” He looks off into the distance for a bit, “That got… personal. I’m sorry if it was rude- I must’ve needed to vent… or something.”You just shrug. “Happens to the best of us, kid. For what it’s worth, I think that’s a solid plan of action. And, well...if worse comes to worst...might be seeing me again in one way or another.”The two of you are silent for a few moments. He looks like he’s about to conk out.> “Name’s Miranda. Not that I ever told you. Get me? In public it's Verde.”> Pat him on the back. Kid's got goals. “Get to sleep, kid. You need it.”> Say nothing. Maaaaybe you can stand having someone around for tonight.> Other

>>1468635His going to make the sun his gf
>>1468635>>1468631>>1468627>>1468801You pat the kid on the back, “Look kid, go get some shuteye. You need it.”Like a good boy, sniper child marches off to his wagon… wait he didn’t move where’s he gone? You didn’t really get a good sniff, but if he’s that quick.Or he’s sneaky.That’s what it is.PURPSYou can’t feel your legs. If Hona had her way and there was no evil phantom assassins out there, you think she’d have killed you.With love, kindness and tenderne- no. Tenderness isn’t the word. Passion, she is a very passionate companion.Speaking of your songbird, she snores beside you loud enough to rattle the water boiling for your morning cleansing. The sun is radiating in off the… wait how is there sun in here there is no window - Stop Saying My Name In Bed. I Don’t Enjoy Watching. Oh. You must’ve bothered Minerva enough that she - Oh.

>>1468858>>1468846“I am sorry for my indiscretions and won’t force you to watch me again.” You murmur under your breath as you locate your white outfit for the day, “Bring light and warmth to my day Lady Minerva.” You finish the prayer, much preferring when you can have actual conversations with her, you’re fine for treating her like a person when you can interact with her, but praying feels like a mix of writing a letter, asking for a favour and begging for extra pudding from parents.“Huh. Weird comparison to draw for someone who can’t remember her parents.” You deadpan to yourself as you begin pouring the night boiling water over yourself. The hot has become something of a staple for you, the little fire birthmark that you were 100% not born with is a testament to that. Such is Minerva’s blessing, this would redden and peel the skin off most…. But to you the steaming water is invigorating and sets you up for the day.Soon you’re all dressed and ready to set out, to hide yourself from Hona, Luc and Lex while pretending to be one of the pretty little birds in cages to sing on command.Somehow, despite that sour note… this feels right. Good even.You turn back to your sleeping lover, her eyepatch on your dresser and the searing pit that used to be an eye lies hidden amidst the nest of sweat drenched locks stuck to her face.> [LOVE] Love you Lisbeth 1d20> [DETERMINATION] I’ll get you that eye soon.> [PRIDE] Minerva’s Light I’m good> Write-In

>>1469134>>1469122“Hey…” You begin awkwardly, looking at Honamurei curled around a pillow like her life depended on her ability to snuggle it. “I’m going to get you that eye. Soon.” You vow.Stepping out into the communal area of the wagon, you find that Luc has left you some kind of bread based breakfast. Chomping down the crunchy treat without even stopping to sit down you note that everything is a bit messier than you last remember; even from your escapes from the clutches of the troll in your bedroom to keep watch, it was neater than this.The answers both draw your attention by rolling over and yanking the blankets closer. Picking up the glass of fruit juice left for you, you take a loud slurp and peek over the back of the couch to witness Switchwick and Lexington under the same blanket and comatose, the Siren's wings curled around them like some feathered cocoon. Judging by the bundles of clothing thrown to the side you were not the only one seduced last night. Gulping back your drink, you ponder if you should do anything about this situation.> [CRUELTY] Try not to laugh, laugh anyway> [DETERMINATION] Leave Wagon and adopt siren disguise, which means chores & rehearsal.> [WORRY] Leave before things get weird> Write-In

Hopping down onto the scarred road, you exhale and take in the scene.It is a beautiful morning. Suns shining, birds singing, the girls have yet to awaken from their frightened and restless sleep, so you have solitude right now. The carriage will get moving soon and since you’ve eaten breakfast you don’t really have much to do.Well, the road has to be cleared from your impenetrable wooden wall of overturned trees. Perhaps in your fervour to find out what the Stalker was and kill it, you may have went too far in trapmaking.

>>1470718>>1470748>>1470754>>1470755MIRANDAIt’s not a great effort towards mentally rousing yourself from your eyes open trance that makes you frown- you’ve done this many times before and will do it many times in the future. No, that’s not it at all.Purps was late for her watch. Extremely late, as a matter of fact. Late enough to have missed the whole thing entirely. You’d considered slamming on the door for her attention, but you’d decided to be rather magnanimous and let her have her fun times, under the excuse of she’s technically still young, so responsibility likely doesn’t come as easy to her.Still doesn’t mean it didn’t piss you off, though. For all her skills, she’s got certain...faults. At least she’s up early enough. That’s respectable. You see her head off towards the mess of fallen wood that she’d caused- some effort at putting forth physical traps. Another thing you can respect well enough. You still preferred magic, though. She then proceeds to get to work lifting, throwing, cutting, and generally dismantle all her hard work.Well, if she wants to slack off with taking watch, she can reap the consequences. You’re more than happy to catch a quick nap in the time it takes her to clear all that lumber out- although, really, that might just be getting petty. Not that you haven’t earned that, you’d like to think…>Catch some extra zzz’s. She’ll be fine clearing out that woodwork herself.>Ngh. You’re better than this.

>>1470916>>1470868>>1470817>>1470806>>1470805>>1470802PURPSWith a heave, you manage to throw the tree over your shoulder. The solid impact of the wood making your legs shake for a second; bending your legs to even out the strain - it all evens out. Despite the strain on your back and neck you begin slowly walking to the side of the road, shooting glances over your shoulder to make sure you don’t smack a carriage or person with a tree.With a guttural cry you push upwards at the side of the road, tossing the tree upwards. It flies a short distance lengthwise before landing with a thud on the other side of the overturned logs that framed the road to the side. At least it’s out of the way, damn if you’re going to move the stuff that’s providing a natural barrier to the forest unless you have to.The sound of foot on dirt alerts you to Verde approaching, “Hey. Sorry about being late this morning.” You begin dusting off your hands, “Hona was… well I didn’t have much of a choice.”You’re blushing, but honestly Verde barely seems to have reacted; she’s just getting on with the task of clearing the road, she does seem to be a bit of a slow starter so maybe she’s not that angry? She didn’t seem to be that pissed at the time.Also it was ten minutes and you had to literally get untied. Hona is weird, but you can’t say you mind.Oh yeah, morning. Trees.
