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 the PTU system, 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 and also may leave you open to an interrupt, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Pokemon and trainers are unique, and may have certain specializations, skills, or other things that the video-game mechanics might not allow. Some examples: That kung fu Bellsprout in the anime, that crystal Onix, or a Roggenrolla that can fly. Herb's perception skills, pokemon knowledge, context clues in general, and other things will hopefully come into play to avoid completely unfair, unforeseeable bullshit, but expect more bullshit from more advanced trainers.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Croconaw)Sorbet (Vulpix)Location: Tabo Island, outside a tiny mainlander town.Recently: You agreed to help Murkrow out with his stash. Gobble jobbed a Snorlax, When finding out Murkrow had a sister with a broken wing, went to go help heal it.

>>1770123Just means they won't let us reset her wing, which might be for the best.
You don’t know what to do. The thought of it makes you want to barf, but the only solution you can see is convincing them to let you break the wing to reset it.“Hey, Murkrow. I need to do something that’s going to hurt.”He cocks his head and narrows his eyes.“I know. But it’s to heal the wing. See, it’s already healed. The only way to set it right is to heal it again. That means...breaking it.”Murkrow, the skinny one, puffs up. You try not to flinch at the sudden move.“Can’t we take it to a pokemon center?” Laki asks.“They’d have to do the same thing.” Hana answers.“I can promise for a fact that the one it town doesn’t have any painkillers.” Abigail says. “And...don’t tell her I said this, but our nurse can barely handle pressing the button on the machine.” Abigail is still watching you, curious as to how you’re going to heal this. “I’m guessing with your confidence about healing, you can do a better job.”“I can make some medicine that will numb the pain. Mostly.” Keira volunteers.Murkrow is looking a bit overwhelmed. He’s stuck on the thought of breaking the wing. The fat one seems apprehensive and unsure as well.This is going to take some convincing. You’ve got to show them you can heal it. You completely understand why they-There’s a sharp cracking noise. Everyone turns to see Hana holding her normal pinkie with her robotic hand. She broke it.“WOAH!” Laki leaps.“Hana!”“What are you doing!”“It’s okay Murkrow. I know what it’s like to have to be hurt to be healed. I’m with you.” Hana, trembling in pain, holds her hand out to you. “Watch closely.”You have a lot you want to say, but you don’t want her to linger in pain. You reach out, close your eyes, and with everyone watching, focus your healing on her finger.You just don’t feel on the ball right now. When it’s over, you see Hana giving a brave smile and showing Murkrow. Murkrow seems to be impressed and amazing and coming around, but Hana is having trouble pretending that it’s fully healed.“So can we go ahead?” Laki pushes Murkrow?His sister, watching, lifts her weak broken wing, she nods to him. He very slowly nods to you. He’s really suspicious, but doesn’t seem to have any better alternative.Everyone waits around for a short bit while Keira rushes to come up with something for the pain. You’d volunteer to help, but you just don’t know enough about plants or medicine to be of any use, and the makeshift mortar and pestle is being handled by Laki.Hana is sitting a little bit away.>Talk to the Murkrow’s to try to win more of their confidence>Talk to Hana privately. You don’t approve of what she did>Talk to Hana privately.

>>1770154>>Talk to Hana privately. You don’t approve of what she did>Talk to Hana privately. You think what she did was brave>Sit and close your eyes, try to center yourself before you attempt to heal the wing
You sit down next to Hana. She’s got a smile plastered on her face, but water in her eyes.“I don’t want to complain, but I don’t think that healed all the way.” She mutters quietly, giving you a look showing she suspects you already know. “Can you manage with the wing?”“Umm, I think so.” You glance back over to the Murkrows. The one you deal with is watching the painkiller being made, but clearly lost.“About what you did...”“I know.” She interrupts. “I pretty much immediately regretted it. But it worked, right?”“Well, he’s convinced, but I don’t know if you needed to go that far. Are you okay? That had to really hurt.”Her smile softens. The eyes that she gives you are ones you’ve only seen a few times from her. It makes you feel like a child being looked through by someone five times your age. “It’s nothing I’m not used to.”“That’s...” you scratch your head, hoping it’ll loosen out the right word, “brave of you. But please don’t do something like that again. I don’t like to see you hurt.” The look in her eye fades a little. “Sorry. And thanks.” She nudges your shoulder lightly.You smile, she smiles back. You share a nice little moment.You close your eyes and try to focus your thoughts. That conversation put you a little more at ease. You’re still worried about her, but you feel like you got to know a part of her you’re still very unfamiliar with. You feel a bit more centered.“All ready?”You open your eyes. You don’t know how much time passed, but you can see the larger Murkrow already drank something Keira gave her. Laki is standing over two boards that she set up, with a place to put the wing. You feel a little sick just looking at it.Hana stands up. “I’ll-”“Nope. I will.” Laki says. She doesn’t seem like she’s trying to be too bossy, but more that she’s firmly concerned about Hana doing more right now.>No. It’s your responsibility>Look away and cover your ears. You can’t watch this>Watch. You can’t look away, even if it might rattle you>Something else
>>1770229>Watch. You can’t look away, even if it might rattle you.Focus on the wing while Laki works it. The second that wing is back in place we need to heal it.

Damn Gobble, just wanted to say that your grasp of islander issues and politics hits uncomfortably close to home... feels weird...
You watch carefully. Stoically. Murkrow sees you, and so do the others.Laki carefully places the larger, scared Murkrow down onto the contraption, whispers something assuring, and stands up straight. “Alright. On three, okay? One. Two. -”She presses down hard. The sound, both from the snap and the noise Murkrow makes, is almost unbearable. The sight is pure panc“Hold sti-!” Laki struggles “It’s okay. Hold still.”Keira moves in to help as well. Abigail watches, trying to keep her lunch down.Hana urges you forward.“Uh, right.” you quickly move over and kneel down. Your own pokemon move themselves and each other out of the way, all watching carefully.You put a hand on the wing that the large Murkrow bravely does it’s best to keep still. Or maybe it’s just loopy from the medicine. You can’t really tell. You focus on the task at hand instead, and let your energy flow into your healing.It’s become a lot less about forcing the flow, and a lot more about making a simple connection of energy to the right spots and feeling it suck out of you. You work more on controlling how much and how fast it flows and cutting it off at the right time than anything else. When you feel like you have it, you stop and open your eyes.There’s a silence as everyone watches. The large Murkrow is calm. It gets up. Laki let’s it go carefully.There’s a test flap, then another. It adjusts the wing back and forth, checking every little bit and re-familiarizing itself with how it’s supposed to rest on it’s body.Then she takes off. There’s a collective sigh of relief, followed by gasps as it caws in delight. She’s full of energy and life, and despite her large size she really books it around. She tires quickly though, and comes down to a sloppy stop in front of your group again.You waver in dizziness. It passes quickly.“Amazing!” Abigail says. “I....how?”The larger Murkrow flies onto your shoulder and gives you a playful peck on the head. Ow. But you laugh anyway as it flies to do the same to Laki nextThe others are more celebratory. Murkrow, the smaller one, approaches with tears in his eyes. He looks up at you, not knowing what to say or do.>High five. Keep the mood festive>Give him a hug>You can’t rest now, you want to talk to this leader of theirs>It’s really early, but you’d like to nap>Something else
>>1770328>High five. Keep the mood festive

>>1770328>>Give him a hugwould be funny if best bird steals our wallet when our back is turned out of habit, embarrassingly gives it back at the end of the hug.
You slap his wing with a high five. He jumps, but feels foolish when he sees you were just giving a nice gesture.To emphasis the point, you kneel down and hug him. But he doesn’t like this at all. He freaks out, clawing at you. You flinch and squish him in forcefully, but not enough to hurt him, as his talon gets stuck on your shirt. There’s a small struggle before you’re able to let go and he can also get free.“Woah!” You fall back. Mace leaps in front to defend you.Murkrow quickly gets a hold of himself and backs down. He looks at the ground apologetically, and explains.“He says that he doesn’t like being hugged.” Keira tells you. “He likes to have his wings free all the time.”“Ah. Sorry, Murkrow.”“He says he’s sorry. He hopes your feather-dress is alright.”“My...” you look at the shoulder of your shirt. Some strings are pulled. You’ll have to see if you can fix that later. “It’s fine.”He looks like he’sYou get up and stretch, looking around at the others.“I’d like to speak to whoever is trading you all this food.” Keira says. “I want to have a word with him.”“Oh good. More Loanah clergy enforcement of what we’re allowed to do.” Abigail says to nobody in particular.“I just want to talk.” Keira looks wounded, and a little upset.“And if you don’t like what they have to say?”Keira has no answer. Murkrow pipes in, though. “He says that their leader will lose his mind if anyone else tries to go over his head and talk to the human that trades them food”>Let’s just teach these two about foraging their own food>Let’s find the human trader>Let’s talk to the Honchkrow leader>Something else

>>1770463>>1770460[He looks like he's deep in thought about it.]
“Hey, Laki!” You quickly try to deflate the situation. “Let’s teach them how to forage!”“You know how to forage?” Abigail asks, genuinely curious“I uhh, no. But Laki does.”Laki gives you a hesitant look. “Kind of. Keira’s probably the best, though.”“How come nobody asked me?” Hana says.The three girls all look at each other, then share restrained giggles.“What?”“You’re more of a mainlander than Soft Hands.” Laki tells her. “It’s fine. You know about...movies!”Hana puts her hand in her pocket and flinches. Her pinky must still hurt a lot. “Anyway, Keira, go ahead.”A few curious Murkrow come gather around as well. They seemed to be drawn in from the screech of the broken wing earlier.Keira looks at everyone staring at her. She perks up. “Alright! Well, first, you want to keep an eye out for...”She goes on talking about different edibles you can forage, how to spot ripe fruits and what’s not ripe, easily confused plants, and other things>Listen, try to pick up some tips>Take the chance to nap>Talk to someone privately>Offer to train the Murkrow on battling>Something else

You slowly back away, giving more room to Gobble and the other pokemon. Gobble seems keenly interested in this talk about where he can find food.You sit next to Hana and take her hand in yours.She flinches. “It’s fine. You don’t need to push yourself on my-”You let more of your energy flow out. You get a little lightheaded.She loosens up, looking drastically more relaxed. She still winces a little as she moves it around, but she looks like she at least doesn’t have constant pain any more.“Thanks. I...are you okay? You look paler than u...you look pale.”“Oh yeah. I’m fine.” You blink it off.“Okay.” She squeezes your hand. “Thanks. I... I want to make it up to you later.”“Oh, you don’t have to.”She smiles. “I want to.”“But how-”She pushes some fingers together and mumbles some things you don’t quite hear.“Make sense?” Keira says loudly to the crowd of Murkrow.They caw.“Great! Then everyone try to look for one of the plants I mentioned, and come back here.” They all disperse. “Have a blessed time!”You slump. Looks like Keira wants to stay around for a bit and make sure they’ll do their exercise alright.You guess you have a little time, then.>Do some training>Fall asleep on Hana’s shoulder>Read up and study>Go find that Honchkrow>Something else

You yawn as you lean your head on Hana’s shoulder. She makes a small, cute little noise before putting her arm around you.You’re just going to rest your eyes for a bit, then start on some training. Maybe you can study while that’s happening. You let your mind wander a bit instead of thinking up the best plan. You just need a little time.You slowly wake up, wiping some slobber from your mouth. It’s dark. As your eyes adjust, you see you were sleeping under a blanket on top of Hana.“Morning wood? I call it breakfast in bed.” Hana mumbles.You freeze, looking down at Hana. But you see that she’s just mumbling in her sleep.You get your bearings a little more and find that everyone else is asleep too. Laki is close by, but has the larger Murkrow sleeping on top of her. They didn’t bother setting up a tent, but there is a hastily assembled canopy in case of rain.You stretch, wondering what you’re going to do in the middle of the night. That’s when you spot Keira. She’s got the Time Flower in her hands, and she’s muttering about trying to solve it.>Sneak up and scare her. She’s always playing pranks, she’ll appreciate that>Go offer some help>Just watch for a bit>Go for a walk>Something else

>>1770916we should wait till we're at polu's island if thats the case, #makenormaltemplesgreatagain
I'm hoping at some point we go back and get to see the stuff Fug showed us in person.
>>1770916Timeflowers from the show just seemed to give you a view of the previous time, not take you there yourself. This could be using all new rules though.
“Come on.” She mutters. “Why won’t you open up? I’m a priestess!” “Need any help?”She glances back. Her facepaint is running slightly from the sweat on her face. It looks like she’s been working hard at this. “Oh. Hi Herb.” She holds it towards you. “I guess you probably have the aura powers to open this. Just like you do everything else.” She stops herself. “I’m sorry. That’s not right of me. That’s not Priestess-like. You didn’t do anything wrong.”You hold up the flower to what little light you can find, inspecting it, while Keira tells you what happened. The group decided to stay there until you woke up. Laki spent the time trying to get the Murkrow to exercise, and Hana kept insisting she was happy to be your pillow. Abigail and Keira had been trading ideas.“So, what do you think?”>Give it back to her, and walk her through what you experience when you heal>Maybe we need to find an aura pokemon to consult>Try your deepest aura focus on it>You think it’s pretty, but otherwise don’t think it’s special>Something else

You hand it back to her. She looks at it in her hand.“I think you can do it.”“I’ve been trying.” There’s a slight edge of frustration on her voice.“Well, maybe you just need a different approach.” You start. “Close your eyes.”She does so, and focuses. You walk her through the feeling you have when you heal. The way your sort of slowly approach another aura and let a connect just happen, keeping the perfect distance. It’s like a magnetic liquid, where you only want to drain some, but not all of it. You don’t know if that’s the best metaphor but it’s the best you can do.And suddenly, you find yourself surrounded by silent lights. It’s like a holographic movie playing of you and the group earlier in the day. You see Hana slowly bringing you down to a more comfortable position, Laki training with Murkrow, Abigail calling home on her pokedex. It’s amazing.Keira wavers back and forth in her seated position, in a trance. Sweat pours down her face. But from her expression, you can see she’s thrilled, if strained, to be able to do this.>Okay that’s enough, snap her out of it>Sit back and keep watching>Try to lend her your aura>Wake the others up>Something else

“Let me help you.” You say, uncertain if she can really hear you right now. You sit next to her and take her hand in yours.Okay, Herb. Just like before. Pour your aura into her. She opens up and lets you give her everything.Her eyes glow and she goes into overdrive. The holographic vision goes back farther. Much farther. You see flashes of light as it speeds backwards into the past. What’s more though, you see yours and Keira’s auras glowing bright white. It’s like you both enter into another realm.Finally, the rushing ends, and you find yourselves floating spectrally above your bodies. She looks to you, trying to see if you see this.“Y-yeah.”“What...what do we do?”Some sort of spectral winds rush around you. You can see the real world, but also another layer on top of it. The sleeping people and pokemon have a faint glow to them.She, or her aura, rather, look around. With some concentration, she rewinds -for lack of a better term- to see things that happened earlier that day. You watch as Abigail and Laki debate over who caused the great disaster that ade large parts of the interior of Tabo unusable.Keira concentrates again, harder, and goes back to events that must have happened years ago, judging by the clothes of the Loanan people you see run by.“We can see things that have happened.” She tells you. “We can...we can see who caused it. The disaster, I mean.”“Is this safe?”She shrugs. “I don’t know. But we have a saying. ‘Life is never safe from death.’ It doesn’t translate that well, but it means, well, that you never know what will happen.”That’s not very encouraging. “We have a chance to see things, Herb. I don’t know how long we can keep this up.”>This is dangerous, let’s just go back to our bodies>Let’s go to interior Tabo and see what happened>Let’s go back as far as we possibly can>Let’s go to another event>Something else

“Alright. Let’s do it.”“You mean, see what happened to cause the disaster?”“Yeah. It could solve a lot, right?”She looks down at Abigail and Laki. “I hope so.”You try to push your aura to fly. To your surprise, it works. It just feels natural. You zoom off towards Tabo’s interior.Keira laughs and laughs, ecstatic at this new journey. “It’s like a dream vision on Hakululu smokeleaf, but different.”She reaches out to hold your hand so you don’t get separated. It feels warm. But you can slowly feel your energy draining as well. Whatever you do tonight, you’ll have to ration out your energy.You keep zooming, going faster and farther. Various random visions of the past play out on the land below you. You only catch small flashes and scenes.But one jumps out at you. A young trainer with an old Heracross.“Dad!” You stop in your tracks.Keira stops with you.>You go on ahead. I want to see this>Keep going with you. You can’t leave her alone>Ask her to stay with you>This is enough, go back>Something else

>>1771442>>Keep going with her. You can’t leave her alone
>>1771442> keep going with her, you can't leave her alone
You look down, watching dad play with his Heracross.“Do you want to stay?” She offers.You hold her hand again. You can sense the worry in her voice. “No. Let’s keep going.”She flickers a little, but refocuses. The two of you head to the interior of Tabo, to see what happened, how, and maybe, find the truth. It’s strange. You don’t feel like you have a personal stake in that, and you don’t think Keira really cares either, but the two of you both seem invested anyway. You guess the idea of settling a debate and bringing peace to at least Laki and Abigail is enough. There’s also the curiosity factor.[I’m afraid that’s it for tonight. I want to get another thread going as soon as possible. We should be having a short one some time before next Saturday.]
>>1771572Night G, thanks for running!
>>1771572thanks for running Gobble, when can we expect next thread?
>>1771576>>1771581[Thanks! I'm not 100% sure. Tuesday seems most likely. If not, Thursday. I have the next two lewbins out in my head but not on the screen yet.I know I probably say this more than is tactful, but I love you guys. I hope you all have a great night. Please don't be shy about any questions, things you want more of, things you want less of, etc.]
>>1771592>things you want more ofy-you
>>1771597[I think we'll be upping the frequency in the next while. Some threads during the week might end up a little shorter, but happen more often.]
>>1771602How's the Laki bin coming Gobble?
>>1771592I'd like to take this opportunity to bring up the time you said that if Kat had over exerted herself while healing Robin, we would have played as Robin for a while.I love alt-perspective bits, so I would love the opportunity to play as Gobbo or Mace or something, if not Laki/Hana. But if we wait until Herb gets incapacitated to do so, I worry it will never happen. Maybe put Herb on a bus for a bit while he aura trains? I dunno.I think I posted a list of bin ideas towards the end of the last thread.I wanna get Mace to tell campfire stories.Having given it some thought, I hope that either we don't learn how to talk to pokemon, or if we do, it is more of an understanding of intent than a language.
>>1771592We live you too. <3I want more of Laki and Hana forming a relationship beyond "You like Herb? I also like Herb."
>>1771602Thanks Gobble. Hope to see you soon!
>>1771620[I'll be on it hard tomorrow. I sort of talk to myself while driving to sort out thoughts and I hope hers will turn out to be a good character exploration/decent fetish bait.]>>1771621[I always wanted to try different perspective threads. I just heard very early on in QMing that it's a bad idea for some reason. I can't even remember why, now. As long as nobody really objects I'd love to try it.]>>1771624[They're coming around. Well, especially Hana. They're a bit in stasis though, wanting to get more intimate with Herb first. Laki's main reservation is frankly that she finds Hana's unbreakable spirit intimidating. Hana's is her fear of exposing her power level to Herb, let alone Laki. But every day she gets a little bolder. She also is sort of looking to Herb and Laki on what's expected of her and what the rules are.I'll try to put more in and give Herb some chances to be more involved. I think a date night would do everyone some good.]
>>1771592Thanks for running!
>>1771662>>1771630[Thanks for coming, and also the cute pictures! I save every OC that's made.]
>>1771638>Gobble drives around Canada vocally planning poke' porn.
>>1771638>As long as nobody really objects I'd love to try it.]I think the important thing is to take that kind of thing slow, done correctly it could be a really interesting method of storytelling that would add variety; incorrectly could be just terrible and destroy the feeling of the whole quest, which if you ask me is your main selling point as a QM.It's probably not a bad idea to do it for just 1 or 2 threads max at first and judge how if effects the story and the gauge readers opinions on it, if it works out you could later to greater effect.
>>1771638I feel like Herb would benefit from seeing an example of a healthy harem relationship. Kat planted the idea that it was possible, but he should probably see it in action, get a chance to ask some questions. Are his girlfriends expected to date each other? Does he go on dates with them together or separate? Is it weird to show them off? You've seen people be proud and doting of their singular S.O. before. But you don't want to be an ass.And also I want to see Herb talk to Kat/Robin/Clair while Hana is there too.Also, I assume the key to alt-perspectives is to use them sparingly. And if people don't like it, I'd still like to see it as a mainstay of bins.
>>1771638I like alternative perspectives, I think that say if some character splits off (pokemon or otherwise) and the action of some event is happening around someone other than Herb than we should vote to change perspectives so the players can do what they want. Also when Herb is knocked out of commission due to reasons i think it would be really fun to play another characters perspective.
>>1771638The issue with different perspective threads is that anons don't act like the character they are: E.G. players might play Hana as a pure waif afraid of sex.Some might play Laki as an evil vindictive bitch to take her out of the waifu race.Alternatively they panic and make certain decisions out of fear which are totally out of character or just plain stupid.
>>1771715I trust gobble to give us choices that are only in character for alt perspectives, I have no fear of meta-gaming or out of character actions happening if we control a non-Herb character because Gobble is that good a GM.
>>1771729I agree Gobble is an excellent QM but the fact of the matter is they have no experience using alt perspectives and the readership has no experience using them in this quest, it's something that should be approached with caution at the very least.
>>1771638> make bin fetish bait yes yes YES
>>1771890not just any fetish bait, LAKI fetish bait. oh yes
Bet it turns out to be a bitchslap from Rayquaza that caused the disaster.
would have been nice to get a yes or no instead of just waiting all night to see.
>>1776929Potentially missing a thread won't/shouldn't/hopefully does not kill you.
>>1776929If there's no message by 5:00 PST it's safe to say there won't be one that night.Personally, I follow Gobble on twitter and set my phone to notify me any time Gobble posts there, assuring I don't miss any threads without need for monitoring in my part.
>>1776951no, but it would have been nice. The ratio of effort to relief is really low.>>1776955that would not work for me but thanks, also Gobble sometime forgets to update the twitter.
>>1776976It's very rare for Gobble to miss an update on twitter and when Gobble does most of the people in the thread are quick to remind Gobble to do so.
I hope gobbles ok
>>1778572It's been like 2 days.
No reason to panic, y'all. Thread is probably gonna be on Thursday. Or tomorrow for those of you who live in the future.
[Hey everyone. Sorry about the lack of communication. Thread either tomorrow or Friday. Laki Lewdbin tonight]
>>1779256>Laki Lewdbin tonight
[Any general questions/advice/comments on the quest currently?]
>>1779596Fertility ritual when
>>1779596What's your favorite battle from this/last quest? Why?
>>1779596Who's your favorite character to write?
>>1779618[Later. Of course, Herb could initiate a smaller scale one if he thinks it'd be agreed to. There's a big huge region-wide one that could be done with great fanfare, and smaller scale ones that can be initiated for like, someone's garden.">>1779650[Hard to say. I like both major BTFO moments and close calls. I really enjoyed writing Robin vs her mother, even if that's a cheat since that wasn't really a voted on fight. Kat steamrolling with Oberon was fun, too. I liked the Ghost gym fight also, since it was a bit closer and I felt anons were giving it a lot of thought instead of trying to brute force. Anything that involves outsmarting my plans is always great to me.]>>1779729[Tough call. Laki and Clair seem to be the most fun, just because they're both contrary types. Conflict is what writing is all about.]
>>1779596I'd like to see trainers with gimmicks/themes/tactics as interesting as those the gym leaders have.Like a guy who uses low level pokemon with sturdy, endeavor, and quick attack.Or an Oranguru that got a trainer's license.Or a meteorologist with a weather team.Or a guy with a Spinda who keeps from being predictable by spamming assist.Etc.
>>1779747so hypothetically, what would the reactions be to herb being part of a fertility ritual? I'm imagining outrage or maybe slight resentment
>>1779759[Good to know! I'll be happy to throw more gimmick battles in]>>1779849[Eh. It's more accepted than you'd think, mostly. The more Herb proves himself, the more he's accepted. So far he's way ahead of any expectations. It's hard to hate such an enthusiastically nice guy. Someone so accomplished in such a short time must have great lineage. Or he's just cheating somehow and making a mockery of things. Either way, a fertility ritual is less about lewdness and jealously than it is about honoring the islands and making them stronger and more virile. He'd be amplifying the virility of the region itself, so any jealousy would (mostly) be evened out with excitement over that. Since fertility rituals are fairly rare, it's not a worry that it'd be abused.]
>>1779941Who's your favorite wild pokemon that Herb's run into, but has not caught?
>>1779941Do you have any idea what hot pics of tongues do to me?On a more serious note, do you do any non-/qst/ writing, and if so, how has your /qst/ writing affected it?
[https://pastebin.com/17LK8tzZ it's a little late and I'm tired so it might have some issues. I hope you enjoy it anyway!]>>1780018[Oh! Difficult to say. I think Hydreigon will have some fun stuff later on.]>>1780084[I don't. I used to, but I never have time/energy. I'm getting more used to my job and life now, so I might pick it up. QMing has been a massive help for me. Instant feedback is something I'm sure real authors would love, and I get so much of it. I do find I have trouble with framing stories in a consistent POV now, always trying to say "you do this" and "you do that"]
>>1780914Those two are really good together. I didn't get rapey vibes from it, Laki is the good, responsible type of dominant, who is trustworthy and keeps up communication.A few typos, but nothing that inhibited understanding except for "But if it is..." could probably be "But if so..."I'm eager to see more people (mom, sister, Laki's family, Kat, Polu, Val) learn about our new relationship. Once we leave this island I'll be sure to ask in a post-thread what Abigail's impression of us was.I agree with Laki. Fuckin' A.Herb sure does have a type, huh? Kind, smart, islander girls who could break him in half. Good taste.
>>1780971>But if it is[Thanks. I feel like I rushed this one a bit so I'll give it a go over later, too]
>>1780971Laki a best.I'm actually intrigued to see where Laki and Val's whole 'things goes and how it gets handled. Does it end? Does Laki let it keep going but feels guilty about It? Does it keep going and she doesn't see it as an issue? How do Herb and Hana feel about it?There's so much for these characters to talk about in their relationships. I'm really looking forward to it.I wonder if Laki and Hana will end up going all the way with each other out of desperation before Herb's ready.
>>1780914Goddamn. Just. Woo, lads. If Herb's first full time all the way is a threesome I -cannot wait- to see the dual POV's or switching views. Or maybe it'd be better to do that one through just Herb's view?"
>>1781031I'm just eager to see Herb get a "dueling harmonicas." But yeah, Herb is dating both of Val's potential romantic interests and it will be interesting to see if any emotions are stirred by that.
>>1781078PoV switches depending on whos getting the D at the moment.
>>1780914Very sexy stuff Gobble, but the real boner was in my heart. I really enjoy learning about Laki's internal struggles and it's cute to see how Herb effects her. I really enjoyed this bin, and I hope Herb succeeds in his goal of showing Laki just how beautiful she is as a person inside and out. Great work, Gobble.
>>1781081We could always bring her into the fold. I doubt Laki would object much, since its another blonde toy for her to top. That said I wouldnt be surprised if Hana was ok with it as well.
>>1781140I never got any sense that Herb and Val had those sorts of feelings for each other. It'd be interesting if Hana and Laki brought it up though. Herb probably doesn't want to share his girls, but wouldn't have much ground to stand on for the "I'm not sharing" position.It's not a potential future that I see being likely though.
ReminderDARK HERB APPROACHES!
>>1781155Well Herb and Val never got much alone time to begin with, minus a few phone calls. Speaking of which we havent called her in some time.As for the sharing thing, Herb's still a bit inexperienced so it would probably be at one of the others (laki) that would make a suggestion of it.
>>1781168Herb should be in the center and Jane where Herb's name is currently. You know she wont be left out if only to prove herself.Gobble - Jane/Herb/Laki Competitive sex pastebin plz
>>1781140I'd really rather not. Too many will ruin the dynamic, please don't make us have another waifu off. The last one was traumatic enough
>>1781193Well I doubt Val would be wanting to make it a 'serious' thing. If anything i see it as more of a friends with benefits. Besides Herb still has his hands full with two girls, he wouldnt be able to handle another one unless he pushes his 'manning up' to the extreme. I doubt fellow anons would want that. we'd be entering Max territory
>>1781208Did somebody say entering Max ? Herb/Maxamillion/Polu bin when?
>>1781208Like a one off fuck I'd be okay with maybe, just don't make it a permanent waifu thing.
>>1780914Wait. Line 27, I think hands --> ankles.
I love laki
I'm so sorry gobble. I completely forgot this existed. Are you okay with your rent? Last time I was here your roommate left outta nowhere
>>1780914Herb needs to have Laki be his first time.Hana can watch and be bored with the vanilla lovey dovey aspects of it, imagining how she will break out the whip and handcuffs.
>>1781736So, like, Herb and Laki finish having their first time and look over to Hana, who's suddenly chained up and helpless with a whip sitting in front of her?
>>1781736do you really want to bring this fight up again Lakifag? Cuz last time we had it out you lost. Push it to hard and it may very well end up with Hana and Herb being the first time while Laki sits in the corner.
>>1782534I'd soon have Herb raped by wild Gardevoirs than be paired up with that T-1000 in disguise!
Somewhere in the multiverse there is a universe where Laki and Hana are the same person.>In the car accident while at the poke'lympics before she actually got to compete>Acts all jovial and nonchalant about the cyborg parts but is secretly haunted by the fact that she will never be able to compete and will never know if she would have won>Hates being pitied, the idea of being the islands poster child, or having her achievement of getting to the games brought up due to never actually getting to compete>Feels like less of a person because cripple
>>1782867Go back to your afternoon nap, Bella.
>>1782867and that fate is what your pushing is working towards, you have poly be happy with what you got. Just because the Hanafags are patient does not mean they will not hit a breaking point if you get greedy.
>>1781670[Doing great! New career. New (reliable) roommate. New lifting personal record. New hair.>>1781320[Thanks! Fixed]Anyway, just popping in to say that the next thread is in roughly 24 hours.
>>1783145thanks for the update Gobble
>>1783132It's funny you say that, since, even with the combined salt of all of the losing girls fans and the anti-laki fags, Hana only won by one vote.OnePityVote.I know it was a pity vote, because it was my pity vote.
>>1783436and what makes you think the Hana die hard's won't just set up the same kind of situation again to cuck Laki if shit gets nasty? A win is a win my friend, all the pity vote means if that the Hana camp was more clever. But lets not test that, I like this story better then either girl and I would hate to see the Lakifags pitch another bitchfit and start breaking things because they didn't get their way.
>>1782534>>1783132>>1783436STOPI DONT CARE ANY MOREFUCK
>>1783436No it was my pity vote, how dare you invalidate my regret!
>>1783145I see Val is having an interesting reaction to her first sight of the Dildo Pokemon.
Oy fuckers why you being salty when we got two wonderful ladies willing to go through this strange thing together with the (initially) express interest of trying to keep Herb happy.They're wonderful characters and /I/ hope that the first night of penetrative sex is literally decided by something like a coin toss. Like, Herb's spent all day preparing a room, has the candles lit with the rose petals thrown about the room and Bella VERY SAFELY put away in her ball or the other pokemon are being babysat(Day care center use in a quest? Wooo!). So when those two enter the room they see Herb trying to be gentlemanly as fuck and failing cutely while being unable to decide how to proceed.Perhaps the two girls exchange looks and do a rock, paper, scizor match to see who goes first or for the sake of /my/ fetish Hana is the "bigger" lady and coaches the two scrubs while getting off super hard because she has a goddamn voyeur fetish as is BLATANTLY obvious.
>>1779941you, uh, got any more of that face paint girl?
>>1783145line 37 "you" should be "he"end of line 40 "he" should be "be"line 127 "same" should be "say"line 155 "town" should be "tell"really cute ending Gobble, looking forward to the next thread
Can someone give me a run down on characters names and basic personality traits? I forget where I left off and I don't have time to restart. I remember a dominant ex Olympic player or something, a native with a face mask, a robot, and a bitchy girl. Also I remember a big Dragon pokemon coming down to eat people.>>1783145Glad to hear you're doing fine, you're one of my favorite authors, and seem to be a great person to boot
>>1784461No, just read the quest man, it really isn't that long. Just search Gobble's trip and you'll read through the quest fast.
>>1784468I've already read most of it though, just need a refresher. Doesn't matter though, if you don't wanna give it I'll figure it out on my own.
>>1784469Ex Olympic is Laki, Kiera is the native pristess/face mask, robutt is Hana, and "bitchy" girl is probably Jane. You're missing Valerie who is the blonde daughter of the man who basically created the industry in the islands, she hasn't had much time to shine recently due to a lot of relationship stuff being settled and figured out.After a rather large shitstorm(If you read it JUST read Gobble's posts, it'll save you brain cells) Laki and Hana are both with Herb in a relationship. Kiera and him are exploring more aura related stuff as they go around the islands.I WOULD suggest just reading the archives though to get a real refresher because the characters have gone through a lot of exposition since the last time we met Hydregion(Dragon pokemon).
>>1784461It sounds like you left off on thread #15, or possibly #13.There's a lot to fill you in on, and I suggest reading the archives. But i understand some people are busy, so here's a shot at summing it up.We play as Herb. He's not a confident boy, but he's taken the chance at reinventing himself moving provides to be, while still not confident, at least brave. Some mix of good luck and skill have made that bravery make him look super competent, even though Herb himself still has, to put it kindly, humility.There are six other members of the main cast.Polu: the other boy. He was heavily influenced by a surfer flick that was filmed on his home island when he was little. He's a competent battler, and easy to get along with. His island's faction of the Loanan faith, the normal temple, was banned a long time ago, and he believes it was due to the scheming ghost temple, and not his people's wrongdoings. Some people used to pretend to be his friend to get him to do stuff. He has a crush on a gym leader's daughter.Valerie: Priveleged, sheltered, but not spoiled. Her father is the largest mover/shaker in Loanah. Along with Herb, she's the only white kid. She does contests. Gets along well with Herb, and sees us as someone who tells it like it is ever since we gave her a really honest opinion of her a while back. She wanted to take her journey as a chance to exercise some independence, but put that on hold for a while because Hana needed to use her Yacht to charge her limbs. The two grew close during that time.Jane: her father was a mainlander and her mother Loanan. She grew up on the mainland, but sees Loanah as her home. With colored contact lenses, she can pass as entirely Loanan. She desperately wants to be accepted as Loanan, which probably explains why she wants to collect shards, a sort of sacred recognition of exemplary deeds. She used to worship Laki, but now resents her for giving up (and symbolically pissing on Loanah/Loanans) at the games. She gives Laki a very, very hard time. Jane also has paranoid tendencies, and seems to alternate between recognizing our honesty and thinking we're some Machiavelli, toying with everyone who we meet. She has likely had her heart broken at least once. A fierce battler.
>>1784489Keira: I'd say she's Herb's closest friend who he isn't dating and isn't a pokemon. She's a priestess of the ghost temple, and has duties pertaining to escorting the dead to the afterlife. She knows an assortment of rituals, and her word carries weight to all in the Loanan faith (which really needs a proper name). She once molested us in our sleep but she apologized for it so it's ok between us. Ghost priestesses don't normally go on journeys, hers is experimental. Personally I don't believe she'll really have journeyed until she visits the mainland but for now Herb/Valerie/Hana/Laki/Polu/Jane all provide a whole lot of insight about the world outside her own experiences. We once did an aura-mixing (mind meld) where she remembered that she has been repressing her sexuality. When she decided that served her no purpose, she broke that mental barrier. Then we masturbated in front of each other naked in he woods, as platonic friends. Recently, we found a powerful artifact with her, called a "time flower." We are currently using it to peer back in time and see who polluted this island.Hana: Life just keeps fucking shitting in Hana. Orphaned, mutilated, bankrupt, raped, you name it, Hana has experienced that tragedy. Even so, she's a sweetheart and doesn't quit on people. Personally, I think she can be reckless, and I hope that doesn't stem from low self-worth. Once Herb caught her a Chincou to charge her limbs with, she's been able to leave Valerie's yacht and set off on her own. She has an affinity for water types. She's very very very kinky, and is glad Herb hasn't judged her for that so far. She's spent a lot of time on the mainland for medical needs/being an orphan. She confessed her feelings for us and we said yes, and are now dating her.Laki: she puts up a tough front to compensate for being sensitive. She's also pretty tough still though. She's famous, or perhaps infamous, locally for her performance and failure at the international games. She's strong in her convictions, including island tradition, though her faith has been shaken at least once by her travel abroad. Can't get it through her thick skull how cute she is. Has some self image/confidence/worth issues. Has a hate-on for Jane. Jane isnt willing to be emotionally vulnerable enough to express her feelings of betrayal about Laki as anything other than taunting, so it's understandable Laki doesn't like her. Hours after we started dating Hana, we talked to Laki and realized "fuck I like her too" and had a bit of a breakdown. Lucky Herb, Harems are a thing on Loanah and both Laki and Hana agreed to try out sharing Herb. It's going surprisingly well so far, though it also hasn't been too long either.
>>1784490Herb has grown in a lot of ways. His patience and empathy have been tested time and time again, and usually he can be really compassionate and solve whatever the problem is. He's made a lot of progress on knowing when to put his foot down too though. After a spirit journey, Herb unlocked the power of his aura and can heal and rejuvinate others on contact. He still hasn't fucking tested to see for certain if it works on himself. He has also learned to unlock the hidden potential of pokemon. Whether or not that works like his healing and can therefore be used on humans is also untested.Herb is so fucking friendly that even the wildlife seems to make friends with him wherever he goes, including that giant dragon he beat up, the bloodthirsty shark he cuddled, the really smart Tauros he taught Surf to, and the Murkrow he trades shiny things with.Oh and sometimes Rayquaza (aka Fug) visits us in our dreams to show us visions but not explain anything. We fed him dream-pancakes. I wonder if those visions of catastrophic destruction were important? We haven't followed up on them so probably not.
>>1784486People reacting is some of my favorite parts of these threads though, so I'll read it all. Thanks a lot for the summary.>>1784489>>1784490Zoinks, didn't know Hana got raped. Makes me sad. All the characters come back to me now though, thank you very much.
Incidentally,does anyone know the thread number in which Kiera and Herb slept naked in a cave
>>1784492Herb's pokemon are a muchlax named Gobble who shows exemplary self-control and is learning to cook from us. He recently punched out a Snorlax and it was the coolest shit.Bella is the Roselia who evolved from a Budew which hatched from the egg we got from our late grandfather. She hatched when only Herb and Laki were present. She imprinted on them and emulated them both.Dice is a Crocognaw, though he was a totodile when we caught him. He was released by his previous trainer and has, or at least had, some abandonment issues.Mace is a Roggenrola who believes evolving would result in his identity death, or something tantamount. And old, old pokemon and a deep thinker. Patient as the mountains, but also excited to see new things. A godamn dynamo.Sorbet is an Alolan Vulpix, and our newest addition. I haven't found her that interesting, but I do know our munchlax has a crush on her. He barely knows her though, so he probably just thinks she's cute. They're not even in the same egg group. I guess Gobbo gets some kink from robomommy.
You know what I remember why I stopped reading, it's because Laki is a cunt and was going to pressure cute Val into having sexual relations outside of a relationship and it made me sad
>>1784494IIRC, It was revealed in a lewdbin from Hana's perspective (grinding experience) that her Uncle was her first time, though she doesn't count it. Her much more recent comment about coercion not having to be explicit to be real reminded me of it.>>178449513 or 14, and it was a shed, not a cave. See also the bin "a hard, wet night">>1784501Laki's always been able to take "no" for an answer, which is what's important to me. And she's been made an honest woman now, so you don't need to worry about it any more I guess.
>>1784505If a sexual predator convinces a 13 year old to strip for him, saying "it's what your body wants, you know it is", is that okay to you? Just because it's not outright rape doesn't mean it's okay. I feel sick.>she lost her virginity to her unclewtf I thought this was comfy pokemon its not fair
>>1784514I think we have two different ideas about the ages of these characters, especially the age difference between Laki and the rest.And yeah, Hana's story is jarringly tragic. I didn't even mention how living so much of her life abroad has left her feeling like an outsider to Loanah. Fuck, the morning after her crush accepted her confession he went and confessed to another girl. Even the best guy she knows couldn't stay loyal to her for 24 hours. In her last bin she admitted to herself that part of the reason she agreed to share Herb with Laki was because she would feel guilty not giving Herb a "whole woman."Everyone in the cast is constantly growing and healing though.Except maybe Jane. When we last saw her she seemed like she might have been slipping back into paranoid delusions.
>>1784526Did gobble say this would end in a harem? Or will he have to make a choice between cunty rapist and cute punished robot
>>1784527It's a quest. Herb, Hana, and Laki are giving a Harem relationship a shot. Nobody, not even Gobble, knows how it will end for certain.Personally, I'm hoping Hana and Laki grow romantic feelings for each other and the three of them live happily ever after. They can take turns being harem leader or whatever.And im pretty sure Laki did nothing illegal, though feel free to ask for word of Gobble on that one.After all, Gobble's threshold for "kinda rapey" is taking a second to realize you need to remind your partner of the safe word.
>>1784537She should not be trying to pressure Val into have lesbian sex
>>1784539She didn't, Laki is hilariously aware of boundaries because of her Island's past. Stop saying rapist, sheesh
>>1784542" You switch to another knot. “Do...do you like Valerie?”“Yeah. She’s alright. A bit bubbly, and she doesn’t really know much outside of her rich little bubble, but she’s nice.”Oh man this is awkward. “No, I mean-”“I know what you mean, Soft Hands. No, I don’t have a crush on her. But I am going to nail her.”You freeze. “W-wha-”“Offer’s already out there. Just a matter of time. She knows I don’t want a relationship. She knows what her body wants. And I want her body.” She turns her head and opens her eyes. “Taking what you want is what my people are all about.”THIS IS RAPEY! It makes me feel sick. If Val wants to have sex with someone, it's her choice, but to take advantage of a naive girl's independence issues just for non emotional sex is fucked up.
>>1784527we already did have to make a choice and picked punished robot by one vote, then the cunty rapist supporters starting having a tantrum and intentionally trying to derail the quest so we agreed to poly.
>>1784543wew lad, instead of trying to lecture someone who's actually read the quest, why don't you, you know, actually read it. I know what I'm talking about, you don't. >>1784544Mate, chill out or shove off yeah?
>>1784546just filling in the kind anon on what happened, as long as the quest continues on as is I am fine with how things happened. Besides I have ulterior motives that your personal opinion really don't factor into, sorry.
>>1784543Laki propositioned Valerie.Valerie decided she wasn't ready to say yes.Laki is okay waiting for Valerie to make up her mind, and believes she will say yes.Assuming they are both able to consent, which I can see no reason not to, I see nothing rapey. But, again, feel free to ask Gobble.>>1784544YAMERO
>>1784544That is messed up that they would do that, but from Laki fans, I'm not too surprised.>>1784546Get your stick out of your tuchus.>>1784548It's no true consent if she's pressured into it.
>>1784549Nigga, please read the quest, he's desperately trying to not spoil anything for you because something did happen.
>>1784549Okay, sure, what leverage do you believe Laki can/did exert over Valerie?She's not significantly older, she's not her caretaker, she doesn't have financial pressures to extort with. Valerie isn't so naive she doesn't understand what sex is. I don't see any good indication that Laki coerced Val in any way. Val is, as far as everyone here can tell, able to and responsible for giving or withholding consent, and Laki will respect that decision.Seriously, Keira deserves this accusation more than Laki and we all put that behind us a long time ago.
>>1784553Val has independence issues.
>>1784554What issues do you believe those are?What makes you believe she has them?How would they prevent her from being capable of giving consent?What makes you believe Laki knows about them and is intentionally exploiting them?
>>1784559She hasn't ever been independent before and that's her whole reason for going on the trip, but she feels like it's been crushed a little since Hana is coming along.She has said this.She can give consent I guess, but its still very mean for Laki to take advantage of this. She wants to be independent a bit more, here comes sexual predator Laki in to molest her
>>1784560Anon, most of what laki says is stuff that makes her feel more incontrol, it's 90% bullshit. It's a security blanket for someone who's life was ruined by her own actions and has suffered for it for a while. Please, stop bitching to us on this Filipino hair braiding board and just read the story if you want to. Please?
>>1784561I've been reading the story since I started posting! Bitching is just a side thing I'm doing alongside it. And yes, I am sorry, as I read more it does seem that way. She won't really rape Val I don't think. Sorry for making a fuss, it struck me to my core or something
>>1784564>>1784561" Mainlanders seem to think where you touch over clothes matters a lot instead of skin to skin contact, so I should be careful. I saw how Valerie jumped when Laki pinched her bottom even though she’s wearing shorts"NEVERMIND SHES A MOLESTING LITTLE CUNT AND HERB DESERVES BETTER, THIS ISNT BIG TALK IT'S SEXUAL HARASSMENT that is predatory behavior and she's conditioning Val to like it, disgusting
>>1784564oh well ok- >>1784567oh lord....
>>1784567this guyI like this guyeven if I don't agree with him 100% on everything.
>>1784567Hahaha, you're preposterous.I'm amazed you're as coherent as you are with your disabilities.
>>1784580now see this guy, I think he's kind of a cunt.
>>1784567Okay, so:Molesting: it would be inaccurate to just call it molestation. It is, however, groping. So, fair point on that.Sexual harassment: it would be if Val asked her to stop but Laki kept doing it. We don't know that.Conditioning: are you talking about grooming? Because that's not how grooming works.Overall, it sounds like something laki would do drunk, I can think of another time Laki was drunk and groped. Which reminds me, Laki hasn't been drunk in a long time, come to think of it.What thread are you on? I'm looking forwards to your reaction to a couple other things.
>>1784583Herbo just turned down a sidequest for some pirate smuggler folks, and a chance to get a shard. He's going to Take to get parts for Hana I guess, and hopefully more cute interactions with her.>>1784580>Lakifags
>>1784583now this guy, a little on the over literal side but over all fair and balanced with an open mind, pretty cool guy out of 10.sorry I'm bored
>>1784582I'm fine with that. It's better than flying off the handle over small, mundane, and irrelevant things.I mean, seriously? "She pinched someone's butt and they liked it, that's rape!" These aren't the rantings of a socially functional person.
>>1784589it's the hungarian figure skating board, what did you expect?
>>1784589I function fine, I just get a little antsy over cunts. It's not fair to pressure anyone into having sex if they're not comfortable (even herb!). But when Herb is molested I don't get a nauseated sick feeling in my soul (probably because he's a guy?).
>>1784591"A little antsy".You got "a little antsy" over things that never happened, threw out the context of what did happen, twisted the events to reflect what you wanted them to be, and then had a mini panic attack/rant about it.
>>1784586Have you been reading the bins?You should have read "hard wet night" through "inside Jane" by now.https://pastebin.com/u/GobblepokemonI want to know what you thought of "hard wet night" and the "plantain" scene in thread #18.
>>1784594>You got "a little antsy" over things that never happened, threw out the context of what did happen, twisted the events to reflect what you wanted them to beto be fair I'm pretty sure most people do that on both sides of virtually every argument that has ever happened in history, they just don't see it when it is their opinion. As for the ranting I like it, it's honest and open at least.
>>1784587Thanks anon.>>1784591Uh, glad you're recognizing it and all, but it's a pretty weird double standard you've got there. Maybe... don't have it?
>>1784594Yeah well that's life yo, sometimes you get uppity>>1784599Not sure what a plantain scene is, But I'd already read hard wet night. Well written I guess. I'm not sure you want me to say about it.
>>1784603I dunno I guess I just thought you'd get on Keira's case for actually molesting Herb?And by plantain scene I mean when Jane intentionally grabs Herb's penis and threatens to break it off?I just thought you'd have a hot take on how those scenes relate to sexual abuse and how that reflects on those characters?Because at the time, I sure did.
>>1784606Was that when they were stuck in a closet or something? I won't lie I skimmed that part when it was happening, guess I was busy. I don't think it was meant to be sexual though, by Jane? See the difference is, for Kiera, she is not dominant. She doesn't really know what she's doing. Laki knows her sexuality, and it harassing a girl until she gives up her body to her, and that's much worse then dick grabbing as a threat and all. Also he's a guy, so it just doesn't effect me as much I guess.
>>1784610>Also he's a guy, so it just doesn't effect me as much I guess.it is as bad dude, it's something you should work on if you can, though it can be hard to change gut reactions you should know it on an intellectual level at least. But yeah I agree on your point with Keira.
>>1784612Obviously I know on an intellectual level that it's bad. Of course, on an intellectual level I shouldn't care at all, since its not real. In incidentally, do you have a thread number for the Jane molestation?
>>1784601The ranting may have been open, but it was certainly not honest.>>1784610If you grab someone's sexual organs, it is, by definition, sexual. Also, you're saying threatening someone with bodily harm isn't as bad as a thing that never happened. You clearly don't know what harassment is. It's not "doing something that may or may not make someone uncomfortable". It IS "doing somethu g to someone repeatedly after you have been told to stop". Valerie has never asked Laki to stop, instead there's every indication that Val welcomes the attention and that it excites her.Also, this is probably pretty telling.>But when Herb is molested I don't get a nauseated sick feeling in my soul (probably because he's a guy?).
>>1784617It's telling of what??
>>1784617it's honest in the sense it is what they actually believe, which is the only sense of the word that means anything.>>1784619it doesn't reflect well on your personality.
>>1784620It's not like I hate men or think men can't get molested. It just doesn't make me feel as sick. Reading about something like forced Isis wives will make me feel sick the rest of the day and I can't stop thinking about it. If Isis husbands were a thing I'd still care, it just wouldn't consume. I don't think that says anything too horrible. I can just empathize will girls better
>>1784623I feel you, but it still reflects negatively on you, which was why cunt anon used it as a weapon; which was the question you asked.same kind of shit he was accusing you of earlier funnily enough, but as I said he's a bit of a cunt.
Hey I shed real tears with Jane dared to said nice things about people, real good stuff
I don't get why yellow anon and new blue anon are being so overly aggressive and the fact that there's still so much passive and not so passive aggression from either of you doesn't fill me with joy.Laki's fine, she's pervy and puts up a front but she knows when she's going too far. Kiera's actions were done with naive intentions but were still "worse" than whatever Laki's done. She's also a nice character.The only one who 'I' believe has any right for being deemed a "cunt" is Jane because even after all this time she is still scheming, thinks Herb has ulterior motives, and won't actually trust anyone. Sure she hasn't pushed anyone into the dirt in a while but she's still the most assholish.Read the story dude and stop being so overly dramatic.
>>1784704Even with Jane, i think thats more of a front
>>1784738Oh undoubtedly. It's still even more abrasive than Laki and frankly after all this time it's at the very least become a very real part of her attitude. She can have good moments but overall I don't see her ever growing out of that rival spot and becoming a real friend. Especially after her reaction to Laki and Hana getting with Herb.
jesus, can we just post butts instead?
>>1784615Like I said, I believe it was thread #18. I'd say it's the only clearly actively malicious thing we've been talking about.>>1784623Yeah, I get that people don't always get to choose what they feel. But it's still frustrating to hear. And it's especially frustrating in this case because you'd think that reading this quest from Herb's perspective would make people empathize with him.>>1784658Oh yeah, I've cried because of this thread too.>>1784751Ugh, yeah. Jane has some issues to work out and I think Herb's been beyond patient enough with her already. She has to want to change.
>>1783075Not to mention all of Hana's power level with the aggression of Laki
>bunch of posts since yesterday>ooh, I wonder what people are discussing!>-On a different topic, what Pokemon would you most want to use as a pillow? I've seen a number of anons say Arcanine and Altaria already. Sorbet and Gobble might work appreciably down the line, too, though the later would be more of a bed.
>>1785701I'm willing to give Gulpin a shot, but I feel like Blitzle, Girafarig, or Miltank are all promising too. If it's a warm catnap in the sun and you don't need something warm blooded, an Ekans could be nice too.Do you think any pokemon have vestigial organs? I would be surprised if Swalot could actually do anything with those nubby little fingers that attach directly to its chest.
>>1785746Those could be semi-adhesive or stretchable. The cartoon might have more insights on that.Others don't immediately come to mind.
>>1785760As far as I can tell, the cartoon does not have any insights on Swalot.It does do Breloom justice though.
>>1785701Torterra. I would love to nap on a Torterra under, it's tree while it goes about its day.

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 the PTU system, 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 and also may leave you open to an interrupt, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Pokemon and trainers are unique, and may have certain specializations, skills, or other things that the video-game mechanics might not allow. Some examples: That kung fu Bellsprout in the anime, that crystal Onix, or a Roggenrolla that can fly. Herb's perception skills, pokemon knowledge, context clues in general, and other things will hopefully come into play to avoid completely unfair, unforeseeable bullshit, but expect more bullshit from more advanced trainers.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Croconaw)Sorbet (Vulpix)Location: Tabo Island, outside a tiny mainlander town, astral version
>>1786435WhooooooHere we go!
You and Keira continue on in your spectral forms. It’s becoming less of an odd sensation, but more of a strain. Still, you’ve got a lot of steam left in your cooker.Keira grabs a hold of your hand, guiding you through it. You find yourself doing the pushing while she does the steering. Eventually, you somehow make it to your destination.Tabo’s main industrial center, before the accident. You don’t even know how long ago this was. But you can sense from Keira that it’s the right place.“Now what?” You ask.“I’m not sure.”You float there, watching the astral projection of the inside of an empty factory, with nothing happening.>Be patient. It’ll come if you wait>Ask Keira what she’ll do when she finds out who caused the accident>Try to use your energy to speed up time>Look around, investigate>Something else
>>1786498>>Ask Keira what she’ll do when she finds out who caused the accident>Look around, investigate
>>1786498>Be patient. It’ll come if you wait>Ask Keira what she’ll do when she finds out who caused the accident

>>1786498>Be patient. It’ll come if you wait
>>1786498>Be patient. It’ll come if you wait>Ask Keira what she’ll do when she finds out who caused the accidentIt was Jane!
>>1786435Awwwww yeah, time for Pokemans!
You sit, patiently. Keira, not having a better plan, joins you.“What do you plan to do after?”“Sleep, probably.” She answers. “please don’t make too much noise if you and Laki or Hana are going to mate.”“No.” You’re too late to cut her off. You hide your embarrassment. “I meant, when you find out who caused it. What’s the plan for that?”“Oh.” She ponders. “I don’t know. I hope that finding out the truth will at least settle the issue. I’ll tell everyone, and then maybe things might get worse for awhile, but then after that, it can heal. It's like...snipping off a dying branch of a plant. The plant becomes healthier after, even if it’s weakened for a time.”You guess that makes sense.The two of you continue to sit and wait. You’re not finding yourself growing impatient though. It’s a neat experience. And seeing at all this old timey industrial equipment as if it were new is a sight.Suddenly, spectral figures appear. They start out ghostly, wisply. Like smoke. But they begin to form shapes you recognize, and then even fine details. There are two of them clearly some sort of workers.“Hey man.” The mainlander high fives his Loanan friend. “Good work today.”“Should that be my line? I’m your supervisor.”The mainlander laughs. “Yeah. Congratulations on that by the way. Guess that means drinks are on you.”They both laugh and joke around some more. They gather up some of their stuff, do a few things with some of the machines that you aren’t sure what the purpose is, and begin to leave.“Wait up, did you disconnect the main supply?” The Loanan supervisor asks.“I turned it off.”“Not what I asked. It’s got to be disconnected, too, remember?”“Why? What, are they afraid it’ll magically turn on by itself? The switch is under the hatch. Come on. It’s stupid.” The mainlander argues. “Just more stuff management makes up to look like they’re innovating or whatever.”“Yeah. I guess you’re right. Let’s go.”The two of them leave out the back door. As they do, you hear the thunk of the last industrial lights shutting off. Keira jumps a bit at that sound. There’s some residual laughter from them as they’ve already forgotten their work day and discuss some sort of sport event.“So they both neglected it.” Keira says.“Wait.” You tell her. “I think there’s more.”And once again. The two of you continue to wait.You sit, sometimes lost in thought, sometimes just looking around. Once or twice you think you catch something out of the corner of your eye. Like a small blur moving in the distance of the factory, or a figure outside one of the windows. Keira doesn’t seem to have noticed anything. Her aura seems a little weaker, though. It flickers on occasion.>Just keep watching. This story isn’t done yet.>”Hello?”>Go investigate>Try to use your aura to light up the area>Something else
>>1786674>Try to use your aura to light up the area>Point it out to her.
>>1786674>>Just keep watching. This story isn’t done yet.>Try to use your aura to light up the area
>>1786674>Just keep watching. This story isn’t done yet.
>>1786674>Just keep watching. This story isn’t done yet.>Try to use your aura to light up the area
>>1786674>>>Just keep watching. This story isn’t done yet.>Try to use your aura to light up the area
“What is it?” Keira asks, noticing you notice something.“I don’t know.” You squint. “I...wait, let me try something.” You close your eyes and concentrate, summoning as much energy as you can. With great effort, you manage to create a stronger glow from your form.You definitely see a figure move, as if reacting.“Careful.” Keira tells you. Before you can ask why, another figure, or perhaps the same one, comes around a corner. You pause.It moves rapidly forward, then stops. It’s small, maybe about the size of a football. As you watch it approach, your lit up aura illuminates it.A pikachu! Or rather, the projection of a pikachu from a long time ago. It scurries forward again, sniffing around. Finally, it comes to a rest on the machine. You guess it must be warm, because the pokemon settles in looking very comfortable.It adjusts itself, becoming less comfortable as the machine cools. Getting frustrated with the cold metal, it makes a noise and gives a tiny zap.And a great and terrible rumbling starts. A gas valve flies off and starts spewing something. The pikachu runs off, scared.“It was a pokemon!” Kiera says.“You can’t really blame a pokemon.” You say.“No, but, well, some people might see that as the islands will acting through the pokemon.”“What do you believe?” You ask.“I don’t think the islands would will something so destructive to itself. But...I don’t know.” Her voice is full of doubt. “There’s no satisfying answer here. Everyone will just interpret this to suit whatever they already believe.”>She’s right. There’s no use it telling people>Well, the Mainlander worker didn’t do what he was supposed to>Well, the Loanan supervisor is ultimately responsible>It was just a freak accident with a pokemon. It doesn't have to have a meaning>Maybe the islands had a plan>Something else
>>1786851>>It was just a freak accident with a pokemon. It doesn't have to have a meaning
>>1786851>>It was just a freak accident with a pokemon. It doesn't have to have a meaningSometimes it's just an accident, no overarching movement of fate or forces, just many small actions ending in one massive result.
>>1786851>It was just a freak accident with a pokemon. It doesn't have to have a meaning
>>1786851>>1786870>Alternatively it serves as a warning to be watchful and follow OSHA guidelines.
>>1786892Pfffft hahahaha. Got a chuckle out of me.
>>1786851This>>1786892Nothing's ever guaranteed. Accidents can happen, so we need to be as careful and diligent as possible.
>>1786905Occupational Safety is no laughing matter anon!
>>1786924Dear sweet bajeesus someone better have gotten a very hefty and long yelling at for that good lord.
Keira looks lost. “I thought we’d find closure. That we had this chance to see the truth for a reason.”You stand silently for a moment before speaking. “It was just a freak accident with a pokemon. It doesn’t have to have a meaning. Just a series of unfortunate events ending in a big way.”She doesn’t look comforted. “If there’s no purpose behind it, then what’s the point?”A moving figure distracts your attention.“Another pikachu?” You ask.But Keira pulls you back. The figure comes forward, lashing out at you with a claw. It vanishes into a puff of smoke after it misses.“What was that!”“Angry spirit.” She tells you. “We need to find out bodies, or calm it. Or them.” Her eyes dash around, looking for others.“Can’t we just stop being in spiritual form?”“Maybe!” Her voice is stressed. “This is new to me too. Try it, and I’ll follow you if it works.”You understand. She doesn’t want to leave you alone. But at the same time, you worry. What if you ‘pull the plug’ on yourself, for lack of a better term, but she’s unable to?>No, we’ll stick together and find our bodies>Alright. I’ll try it.>You first>Trick her into thinking you did it, and let her try it herself>Try to talk to the angry spirit>Something else

>>1787100YES! NEVER LUCKY! Thank you OSHA.
>>1787100Herb can go ghost now?
>>1787100Praise be to Fug, in him we trust We really need to ask mom/kiera about fug sometime
>>1787115i'm okay with only one of those options
>>1787100Looks like everything went fine.
“No, we’l stick together and find out bodies.” you tell her firmly.She looks at you with frustration. There’s relief, fear, and concern, but frustration is the big one. “Herb. This is my speciality. You could get hurt. Didn’t you learn anything from seeing those two-”“Look out!” Another spirit rushes forth, anger and confusion in it’s eyes. But instead of dodging or rushing off to find your bodies, you pulse out your aura. Your inner light. Your sense of self, energy, and protection. The spirit and it’s anger recoils off of it.Keira looks bewildered for a moment. “Wait. Don’t hurt it.”“I’m not trying to.” You tell her.You keep the aura up, and it forms a protective bubble around you and Keira. She examines it, watches the spirit circle around without being able to come too close, and seems to approve, or at least accept it.You’re both completely safe as you calmly go back to your bodies. You thought you’d have a problem finding them, but it’s easy. They seem to have wandered away from the camp, though. Like they were coming towards your spiritual forms. The thought of your body acting on it’s own deeply disturbs you, but you can’t do anything about it right now.“What do we do?” You ask.“This. I think.” She says as she floats her spiritual form inside her body.Keira’s spirit and body seem to become one. Despite feeling like you’re invisible to everything else, she seems to be looking right at you.“Come on. It’s fine.”You do as she says and try it yourself. It works without a hitch. You don’t even know exactly when you go from spiritual to material, until you start to feel all the sensations a body feels. Tired, sore feet, a little sweaty, a little thirsty, and a little cold.“That was, um, an experience.” You say, yawning. That took a lot out of you, whatever you just did.“Guess you didn’t need that bone clip after all.” She says. “When did you get it?”She knows about that? Polu asked you to keep it a secret. It made you uncomfortable, but you did it.>Tell her about when Polu gave it to you>Uhm, you picked it up off the ground>Apologize. You kept a big secret from her>Explain you were asked to keep a secret, and you don’t feel that you did anything wrong>Ask her about it>Something else

>>1787239>Explain you were asked to keep a secret, and you don’t feel that you did anything wrongPoor Kiera having to listen to Herb mate with his girls. Maybe she should join in some day.
Gobble says his computer is bored. Has to get a laptop from a friend and can't continue today
Gobble's computer is caputski right now.
>>1787348Broke*Jesus Christ, auto correct.
I want butts too.
Sadness everlasting. Sorry to hear about that Gobble, hope the hard drive and everything is still okay with your computer. Thanks for running while you could!
Welp, thanks for running.
Herb should ask Laki to puff out her chest and burst the buttons off of a buttonup shirt with no bra next time they mate.
>>1787775Yes he should
Would floating into somebody else allow herb to possess them? Could he bodyswap with kiera? Or is this not like regular sloppy ghosts
>>1787854If Herb can bring a guest then Herb body swapping with Laki or Hana would certainly be one way to spice things up/abuse an artifact.Plus, I'm pretty sure it was the weird aura crystals that caused the body swap episode last quest.Or Herb could learn how to guide an aura mixing.Dance lessons could be fun too though.
>>1787239Hey gobble, where'd you learn to write
>>1787854>bodyswapNow I want a lewdbin with that. Clair's bins hit all my buttons in the previous quest.
Are we running at all today/tomorrow?
So, uh, are aura bubbles a new power now, or was that a one-time thing?This episode has really driven home how far Herb has come in using his aura, but also how far he has to go. I'd like to see Herb experiment with his healing some more. He still needs to find out if his healing works on himself, and he still needs to find out if his potential unlocking works on humans/himself.I'd like to see Herb try healing in reverse, sucking in someone else's aura in instead of pouring his out. Use it as a touch attack to drain opponents or reinvigorate/heal himself.Can his sphere do anything other than shield him from spirits?And how do you guys feel, and by extension how should Herb feel, about the banning of the normal temple?Not only do I doubt that the normal temple didn't have any important duties to perform, but I also think it's fucked that Polu has to be punished for something his ancestors did. Collective punishment is the worst.Question for Gobble: how does Herb's "fuel tank" of aura compare to Keira/a normal Lucario/other aura sensitive people?
I don't think herb will be able to drain, it seems more based on characteristics. Herb is nurturing and protects when needing to, hence healing and a protective bubble. Leeching would imply parasitic on some level.( or maybe it's not like this and all the abilities are free game with practice )Anyway, about that possession lewdbin
>>1788813doesn't seem likely, I haven't heard from Gobble all day and usually he's around early on Saturdays. computer might still be broke
>>1789290I'm sure personality has something to do with it, though to what degree I'm uncertain. Though if you wanted to, you could think of it as Herb eating someone's rage/turmoil, then quelling it within himself. I just think it'd be a useful trick if Herb ever needs to do healing that takes more fuel than his normal maximum. Plus I wanna see Herb overclocked, glowing with life energy, doing cool shit with all the energy lent to him spirit-bomb style from his friends.And thinking about possession/body swapping...Honestly, it'd be pretty useful in other contexts. Moving the mind of someone who is paralyzed/comatose into the body of someone who is brain dead would be pretty fucking amazing.Transgender people could partner up.Spy agencies would go nuts for that kind of thing.It would have been nice to pull Murkrow out of her body while we were breaking her wing.But none of those things apply to Herb right now. However...Hana could get to swim again. Or feel the sand between her toes.Also, there's the prospect of Laki and Herb (Hana's body) giving Hana (Herb's body) a double blowjob.Or Herb having his first time with Laki (with Hana in there too) so he can have his first time with both of them.Since all three of them seem to be switches, it'd be nice to see Herb (Laki's body) dominating Laki (Herb's body.)This is all assuming that the time flower isn't going to be used up by all of this. Actually, come to think of it, the time flower is kind of a huge invasion of privacy. Whoever has it can spy on anything anybody did at any time.
>>1789418Anon pleaseThis sort of thinking is how you end up with human instrumentality projects. It's a slippery slope.
>>1789542There were a lot of ideas in that post and I've never seen Eva. Could you be more specific? Or at least say if it's a good or bad thing?
>>1789542I dunno those bodyswap blowjobs seem pretty tempting. Also imagine Laki trying to be domineering in Herb's body while Herb's being super submissive in Laki's.
>>1789554>Hmm, well, some people are uncomfortable with their bodies>Some people want to be somebody else>A lot of people have trouble understanding others>Pain also sucks, what if we could just let people not feel it>What if everyone was everyone else>This is the best idea, surely everyone will be happier as a hivemind entity
>>1789571Herb(Laki form): Hey there, uh, -Soft Hands-, you ready for me to rock your world?~[Hell yeah, being tall and strong feels great!]Laki (Herb form): [Shit, this is actually super intimidating and hot. I wonder if I can goad him into pinning my arms above my head? Do I really smirk like that? Seas, he's getting into this.]"Wh-what are we going to do on the bed?"Hana: [Wow, new fetish.]>>1789590I feel like there was a logical leap right before those last two steps. I'm not /that/ crazy.
>>1788813[Thread today. Gimme an hour or two. Sorry about last night. We should be good to go again, and with gusto!]
Do you chaps think a time flower might be a good way to attract a celebi, Not necessarily to catch but maybe chill with and share a meal?
Personally I count last night as neutral, like you never ran at all. Looking forward to tonight

Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.Write-ins for all votes are always welcome and encouraged.

Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves and also may leave you open to an interrupt, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Pokemon and trainers are unique, and may have certain specializations, skills, or other things that the video-game mechanics might not allow. Some examples: That kung fu Bellsprout in the anime, that crystal Onix, or a Roggenrolla that can fly. Herb's perception skills, pokemon knowledge, context clues in general, and other things will hopefully come into play to avoid completely unfair, unforeseeable bullshit, but expect more bullshit from more advanced trainers.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Croconaw)Sorbet (Vulpix)

“Oh. You noticed it, huh?”She nods. “Yup.”You feel a deep sense of discomfort. It’s not quite shame, because you were asked to keep a promise and you did, and you didn’t see the harm in keeping it, but at the same time you still felt the weight of keeping it from a close friend like Keira. You don’t quite feel that you did something wrong, just something you didn’t enjoy doing.“I was asked to keep it a secret.” You begin.“I figured.” She said. “You’ve been keeping things from me.”“I...” you look inside yourself. “I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings, but I don’t think I did anything wrong. I don’t really know what this is, exactly but-”“It’s Polu’s.” She says. “I could see it in his aura.”You do your best not to show any signs that she’s right. She seems really confident in that assertion, though. “Regardless of who gave it to me,” your voice shakes as you try to find that middle ground between firm and not wanting to sound defensive, “I hope you’ll understand why I kept it a secret.”Her face, hidden behind the makeup and darkness of the night, is especially difficult to read.“I’m starting to.” She sounds, her own voice cracking now. “Herb. I’m,” she swallows, “I’m starting to have...”You move in closer, not sure if you should be ready with a hug or something else.She struggles against herself. “I’m starting to have doubts. Does my temple really make people feel the need to hide themselves? Why doesn’t all this heresy from your family or Polu seem so bad?” She’s wiping away a growing flood of tears. “Why are we so worried about other belief systems?”You give her a big hug.>Say nothing, just hug>She should talk to another priest who might understand>There’s nothing wrong with people who have different opinions living together>Maybe there’s a reason for why things are the way they are>Something else
>>1790109>There’s nothing wrong with people who have different opinions living together
>>1790109>>There’s nothing wrong with people who have different opinions living together
>>1790109>>Say nothing, just hug
>>1790109>Say nothing, just hug
>>1790109>There’s nothing wrong with people who have different opinions living togetherAlso I'm fine with hugging
>>1790133>>1790109yeah tag>There’s nothing wrong with people who have different opinions living togetheron to my voteeither of those are fine
>>1787892[QMing. I wouldn't exactly call myself great, but I feel like it's helped me come a lot way.][Thanks! Nice picture! Saved!]>>1787360[Just for you]
>>1790109On further thought.>There’s nothing wrong with people who have different opinions living together>Hug.
>>1790145I would call you great, I've seen a great number of professional writers fall into narrative pitfalls and fuckups that you're clever enough to avoid or sidestep.Also we should probably clarify to Keira at some point soon we never had any intention of ever using the boneclip; it was always my understanding we kept it because it was a gift.
>>1787526[Whoops. Meant to say this is a nice picture and saved]
caught up with this thread, their are some weird ass people talking about herb body swapping for sex into a girl's body ( which would kinda negate the purpose of the gender selection at the start of the quest) and other shit and i am just sat here wondering if they'll take their fetishes to some other part of the site
>>1790282I feel you anon, don't get me wrong I enjoy most of those fetishes quiet a bit but there is a place for them and it is called lewdbins; some talk is required obviously to set them up but anons have been pushing that line way too far in my opinion.
You keep her held tight to your chest. She gets out a good long cry. Every time she sniffles and wipes a tear into your shirt you cringe a little and internally weep for your poor shirt, knowing that won’t get out, but you don’t mind. Serving as a rag for a friend in need makes it look a lot better to you anyway.“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with people who have different opinions living together.”“I don’t either, but some said that if that happens, Loanan culture will change. Outsiders will subvert it. I don’t want to make people hide their beliefs or go away, but I don’t want that to happen either. And what about things like the bone clip? Using that would be terrible! How do I tolerate that?”“If it makes you feel any better, I just kept the bone clip because it was a gift. I never had any intention of using it.”“I thought so.” She sniffles. “I just...we believe that you can cause serious harm with something like that. The spirits need to be guided to the afterlife as soon as possible, not scattered into a million lost pieces. It could take a spirit years to come back together, all the while confused and unable to form a coherent thought.”You finger the clip. “Is that what I was doing with my aura?”“Maybe. I don’t know. It repulsed the spirits before they got too close, but if they did I don’t know what would have happened.”The two of you walk back towards the camp. Keira seems shell shocked and lost in thought. At least, you think so. You can’t see her face in the darkness.“Do you want to see it?”“See what?” You snap out of your own head.“You know.” She has unusually coy body language now. She points to her face in the darkness. “it.”>Yes. You’d be honored>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right now>No. She said it could be dangerous before, right?>Something else
>>1790295>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right now
>>1790295>No. She said it could be dangerous before, right?
>>1790282Of course they won'tQuests are just a vehicle for people's fetishes, after all, right? Right?
>>1790295>Yes. You’d be honoredwow, go to one convention and you miss everything. Glad to be back this weekend
>>1790295>>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right now
>>1790294it really doesn't help with the fact that i find anything to do with body swamping or gender bending as bad a fetish as scat or water sports , disgusting
>>1790295>Yes. You’d be honored>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right now
>>1790295>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right nowI feel like a jerk since she only asks us when she's feeling down
>>1790295>>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right nowi'd rather wait until it's been awhile after this experience and she isn't feeling any sort of emotional high and do something she might regret
>>1790317Sounds like a personal problem to me.
>>1790295>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right nowTell her you want to but would feel terrible taking advantage of any sort of emotional vulnerability. I am tempted just to say yes.>>1790317I can understand that, even if I do not see eye to eye with you there. That's one reason I have always kept me fetishes and these threads as separate as possible, it would be nice if more people did the same.
>>1790295>>Yes. You’d be honored>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right now
>>1790326Herb should mention that.In fact, I'm voting to bring this up. She's asked us, like, twice, but only when she's really upset.
>>1790339well that even if it's a peroanl problem to me, there are people bringing their fetishes into a thread about questing which they know some people won't like, so if they can push for their fetish i can push against it, it would be like if suddenly people started talking about yaoi ,with polu after a gym battle, not everyone likes that fetish so when you starting bringing it up for no relevance it's gonna make some people just a tad uncomfortable.
>>1790295>>1790363I'll second this.
>>1790372Unlike yaoi, bodyswap is not a strictly sexual thing. There's plenty of PG plot lines you can make with it. Fuck, haven't you people watched Freaky Friday?
>>1790295>Another time. She’s a bit emotional right nowand also something about>>1790363
>>1790402Or even last quest.
>>1790402when their talking about a boy switching into a girls body to suck his body's dick whilst the girls inside of it, yes i am going to say it's at least somewhat fetish based
>>1790425I won't lie, it's a kink for me. But if the audience were generally more disgusted by it than aroused, I wouldn't want it implemented. I'd still hope for a fanbin if Gobble shot the idea down.
>>1790475If Pokemon fucking got a lewdbin, I can see body swapping getting one.
>>1790425Anon will turn anything into a sex thing, more at 11. Don't get all up in arms against an idea just because people spun it a certain way. Argue against the spin if you want, but dismissing the whole possibility is throwing the baby out with the bathwater.>>1790413That was just eavesdropping on other people's brains, if I'm remembering right. Not really the same thing.
>>1790478the argument isn't about a lewdbin is is about in thread discussion.
>>1790482There was a scene where people swapped bodies on the beach.
>>1790482nah, we had like one thread where everyone was mixed around after using the weird crystalsI think we got Clair's body, which is why we were able to eavesdrop
>>1790478those two have no correlation with each other >>1790475it's fine to have even if i hate the fetish, but for the love of god don't start putting that stuff in a quest thread when is wasn't even asked for and you know that a lot of people wouldn't like the fetish, like i said it would be as bad as if someone brought up polu yaoi whilst nothing it had no relevance, these guys know a lot of people aren't into that fetish.>>1790505I never read the first quest, who were the people?
>>1790521I don't remember who exactly got who, but the shy girl ended up in the body of a martial artist guy who was ripped.Also chillax my dude, lewd talk is pretty common for this quest.
“I would, but another time.”“Oh.” She looks down. “I didn’t mean to pressure you.”“It’s not that. It’s just that you’re a little emotional right now.” She gives you that look Laki sometimes gives. “I mean that, uh, you ask when you’re down, not when you’re happy.”She keeps her eyes glued to the ground. “It’s because you’re always the brightness when I feel sad. Besides, if you can just keep them away, you’re safe to see my face. I think we would have been swamped by spirits from using the time flower, now that we’re done it. But you just did so well that it doesn’t matter.”You’re not sure how to feel about that. “Well, regardless, I’d like to save it for another time.” You tell her. “It’d be a big honor, and I’d like to do it at a time that’s more deserving.”She laughs. “I don’t understand that reasoning, but okay. As long as you’re not mad.”Man. You are toasted. It’ll be morning soon and you feel like you’ve been up running a marathon. Every step is like dragging a shoe made out of cement through a swamp of molasses. And it will be morning soon.Keira covers her face when you arrive in the clearing with the moonlight. You catch a glimpse of her smeared paint and understand why. There’s not much left. “I think I’ll meditate. I won’t be able to get back to sleep.”Mace is there too, not quite sleeping, but not quite doing anything. He does run up when you approach, though. You assure him that you’re fine.>Snuggle back in with Hana and sleep>Snuggle next to Laki and sleep.>Stay up, make an extra fancy breakfast>Stay up and chat with Mace>Something else

>>1790652same goes for mine>>1790596
so whilst we wait, i am just gonna ask question to start a conversation, but are there any quests that you follow on any other sites?
>>1790826No, just a few others on /qst/
>>1790826I read Larro's hoodie quest. There's a story on touhou project I check on now and then, as wel, although I'm not sure one wall of text every month or two with a choice every other update really counts as a quest. I guess Exalted quest counts since it's on akun now.
>>1790826I follow a few on akun but thats it.
“Hey Mace.” You sit on a rock near him. Maybe you’re tired, but you want to make a joke about if you’re sitting on a friend of his. You decide against it in case it’s in bad taste.Mace nods subtly. But you can read him decently these days.“Yeah. I’m safe. Sorry buddy. I didn’t mean to vanish like that.” You explain your journey with Keira. He seems oddly accepting of it.“You’ve seen a lot. Haven’t you?”He nods again.“He says yes.” Keira yawns, eyes still close, meditating.You figured. “So, what’s on your mind?”He turns his head up to the night sky.“What are stars like? He’s been around for a long time, and heard about them, but he doesn’t know.”You guess he can’t see them. That’s touchingly sad.How do you describe the stars?“I’d like to hear your answer too.” Keira says. “I’ve heard that long ago, Mainlanders used them to navigate. But you’re not really a sailor.”What do they mean to you?You guess this questions goes deeper. It’s about what you see in things in life that hold no practical or material value to you. It’s easy to have an opinion of a food you like or colour you look good wearing. What about something so distant?>Stars are balls of burning gas, far away>Stars are magical, twinkling sparkles. Visions of the heavens and inspirers of men.>Stars are too far away for you to have ever thought about>Stars unite everyone. We all live under them>Something else
>>1790921>Stars are balls of burning gas, far awayBut also>Stars unite everyone. We all live under themKinda funny, right?
>>1790921>Stars are balls of burning gas, far away>Stars are magical, twinkling sparkles. Visions of the heavens and inspirers of men.>Stars unite everyone. We all live under them
>>1790921>>Stars are balls of burning gas, far away>Stars unite everyone. We all live under them
>>1790933I'll support this.
>>1790921>>Stars are balls of burning gas, far away>>Stars unite everyone. We all live under them>>1790933supporting
You stare up at them for a moment. “Stars are...just balls of burning gas, really far away. Well, maybe not strictly burning since there’s no air. Exploding might be a better word. Anyway. They’re just a bunch of bright stuff in the sky.”Mace listens closely. So does Keira.“But they unite everyone. We all live under them. It’s kind of funny, isn’t it?”They both sit back, reflecting on what you said. You don’t really think you said anything particularly deep, you were just sort of thinking out loud, but they seemed to like it.“That’s a nice thought.” Keira leans back. “No matter how we’re separated, if we look up, we’ll be looking at the same thing.”Mace makes some noises.“He says he likes that thought, even if he can’t see them. He used to think the same thing about the large mountain on his home island, until he left.”“You mean, with me?”He responds. Keira translates. “No. He’s found rides between them. He’s seen lots of different things. Pokemon come and go. Streams change slightly. But the more time goes on, the more things stay the same. Except for when he became your pokemon. It’s been a non stop blur of excitement. He can’t process it all, except that he feels unable to keep up sometimes.”>You’re glad you can still show him new things>That sounds depressing, seeing pokemon come and go like that>He’s doing fine. He’s not slow>Didn’t he ever want to do anything besides watch?>What does he think of a youngster like you?
>>1791085>>You’re glad you can still show him new things>He’s doing fine. He’s not slow>Didn’t he ever want to do anything besides watch?

>>1791085>Didn’t he ever want to do anything besides watch?>You’re glad you can still show him new things>He’s doing fine. He’s not slow.>Does he want me to slow down?
>>1791085>What does he think of a youngster like you?>You’re glad you can still show him new things
can we ask how old he is or the earliest thing he remembers?
“I’m glad I can show you new things.” You say. “But I don’t think you’re too slow.”“Maybe. But things seem faster now. It must be age.”You get up for a moment, looking for your water bottle. After taking a sip and sitting back down, you look back to your old pokemon. ““Hey, Mace. What do you think of me.”“You’re a good boy, Herb.” Keira says for him. “But I worry. Idealists become the hardest of all when the world beats them down. They become the most vicious and ruthless. The most jaded.”“Herb would never be like that.” Keira comes to your defense after translating. It’s a little comical the way she waited to translate for you in one tone before switching to the next.You decide to change the subject. “Mace. You’ve seen a lot, but you never talk about what you’ve done.” You hope that’s a diplomatic way of broaching the subject. “What are some of the things you’ve done?”The’s silent for a moment. “He’s done a lot. But when he was younger. He says he’s loved a girl, too, but it didn’t work out. He became less trusting, less wanting to be out there. He’s made friends, lost them, and became bitter about it too. Over time, he’s gotten over it. And he’s repeated it a few times. He learned to stay out of trouble, and out of the way.”Huh. You aren’t sure how to feel about that either. Mace sounds like he hasn’t had much fun for a long time. You suppose that if he chooses that sort of life, that’s what he wants. You can understand it, too. Before you started your journey, you weren’t the most outgoing.You yawn.>Ask him something else>Get breakfast going. People will be up soon>Something else
>>1791344>Ask him something elseIs there anywhere he'd like to see again or anywhere we should be weary of?>Get breakfast going. People will be up soon

>>1791344>Ask him something elseWhat does he think of the others? People and pokemon.
>>1791344>>Joke that maybe someday he'll be telling your great grandkids what you were like.>Start breakfast and coffee.
>>1791375>>1791344I'll second this.
>>1791344I can't think of anything to ask but I appreciate Mace.
“I’m glad you chose to come with me.” You tell him. “And who knows, maybe someday you’ll be telling your great grandkids about what I was like.”He says something to Keira. She giggles.“What? What is it?”“He says that the way things are going, you’ll have too many to keep track of.”You blush and shrink. After they giggle some more, you think about one last question you have. “Is there anything you’d like to see again, or anything we should avoid?”“Old friends.” Keira says for him. Her voice shifts slightly as she realizes what she’s translating. It takes you another moment to realize that that was his answer to both questions.“Soft Hands!” Laki gives you a nice, soft hug from behind. You can feel the lack of a bra. “Were you up all night? And you too, Keira?”“Yes! We had a journey with our bodies!” Keira answers.Laki’s hug slowly tightens so hard that you can’t breath. “I’m sorry. I don’t think I heard that right.”Keira explains about the happenings of the last night, just in time for Hana and Abigail to awaken. The pokemon are all getting up now too. The camp has come to life.Hana fetches a coffee cup for you, and Laki arranges for a Worry Seed with Bella.You thank them for it and get breakfast started. Woo. That put some pep in your step.Abigail is still sleeping. You’re not sure how long she plans on staying with you guys. She just sort of came along to see how things end up with the Murkrow.Speaking of, you see them both hopping up to inspect your sizzling breakfast. You want to treat these two to some, but you worry that would undermine the training with having them gather their own food to be independent.>Give them some. It’s a treat for how well they did>Offer to trade for it>Wish them luck on their foraging for the morning>You know what? Ask them to take your pokemon foraging.

>>1791583>“And who knows, maybe someday you’ll be telling your great grandkids about what I was like.”Pretty sure it should be /my/ great grandkidsSo butt me Gobble
>>1791765good god Gobble are you trying to get everyone to want Keira?
>>1791765Woooah, an animated butt! Nice find gobble!
>>1791765I can't view webm on mobile, somebody please describe it.
>>1791784It's like twelve choppy frames of circling around Mallow and then panning to above her.
>>1791777>And you already didn't?
>>1791784Mallow in Baseball uniform without pants; just panties, shirt, and shoes. She is standing with her head between her legs and the camera circles around her
>>1791784[Aww. Have a different butt instead.]
“Well, I’ll cook up whatever you guys bring me.” You tell them. “Here’s a small treat to keep your energy up.” you give them a tiny taste of what you have. It’s not filling, but you like how enthusiastic they get over it.They look at each other. Curiosity seems to percolate in their minds before the set off. You have no doubt they won’t take long.You enjoy breakfast, feeling the new energy from the coffee. It still tastes awful, but it works. You’re zooming through meal prep. Laki and Hana are both eager to get on with the day. Laki though, keeps looking out for the Murkrow.“What’s the plan for today?” Hana asks.Keira’s still lost in thought, thinking about the events of last night. You didn’t really mention what you saw. You guess she hasn’t either.“You guys going to hit up the gym?” Abigail says, helping herself to some of your food without asking. “You don’t look like the battling types.”“What does that mean?” Laki finally takes her eyes off the skies.“I’m just saying. There are different types of journeyers. The battlers, the contest people, the explorers, the party kids. That’s not saying you can’t be good battlers. But the battler types get all ramped up for a gym. You guys are too mellow for that.”“So what are we then?” Laki asks, less offended.“Unique?” Abigail says. “This has been a fun bunch of stuff to watch.”“There’s always the temple.” Keira says. She seems to be pretty perky about that. You’re surprised, given what happened last night and what she said, but you remember her fondess for the grass temple in general.Of course, you could just take the day to have a long-awaited date with one or both of the girls. Some private time.Or good old training, too. You can never do too much of that.>Training>Date(s)>Temple>Gym>Something else
>>1791852>>TrainingHerb is literally Kiera's happiness? Anons she's a good girl.
>>1791852>Date(s)DATES>>1791861He's there for her when she's feeling down, anyways.
>>1791852>>Trainingin the day>>Date(s)in the night
>>1791852>TempleFirst then in the evening>>DATES
>>1791852>>Traininggym and temple will be there when we're prepared. We need to get Sorbet ready for a fight
>>1791852>>1791869SupportI feel really bad about not going to the temple but we need to prioritize PokemonGirlfriends Normal friendsWith exceptions of big quest hooks and family shit
>>1791852>Date(s)Although there's not really much to do here, is there? Maybe a beach day. We can have intimate talks with the girls. Maybe we can play truth or dare, or something like it.
>>1791852>>Date(s)with both at once, also don't forget we were supposed to have dinner at Abigails literally yesterday so we have to do that at some point soon.
Training (focus on sorbet), then let her partner with another mon while doing our lali training. (Couldn't she refrigerate things to allow us and gobble to prepare more complex dishes?)Dates tonightTemple can wait, just did spiritual, there's no rush and kiera needs time to reflect. Maybe tommorow we
>>1791918Never mind dates, this island isn't particularly well off, might have trouble and nowhere nice to treat them on a first date. Maybe Abigails after training Pokemon body and aura?
“I was hoping to do some training today, then, well, if you two are up for it, dates.”“Dates?” Keira asks.“It’s a mainlander courtship thing.” Laki says bluntly.“Omigosh!” Hana gets excited. “There was a theatre in town. It looked a little run down, but...oh, sorry Abigail.”“Nah. It’s a dump. It’s just where people go to make out or whatever. You’d probably hate it.”Hana looks even more excited.Laki looks a little perked up too. “I’ll be expected to dress up, huh? I guess I don’t have a choice, then.”“So, dates with them and then dinner at my place?” Abigail says.Oh right. You almost forgot. “Umm, yeah.”“Sounds like a great date night.” Laki says. Except you’re struck by the lack of sarcasm. She seems like she’s really looking forward to it. She grabs your butt to your shock. “I can’t wait to meet your parents.”Abigail gives Laki the stink eye, until Bella walks up and makes some noise. She looks down at your cute grass type pokemon and softens, then laughs. “Okay. I’ll be nice to you and your trainer.”“Actually, Herb is her trainer.” Hana corrects.“Huh.” Abigail says. "Guess that's why she's so cute."Hana puts a hand on Laki's shoulder to stop her before she even does anything.Bella turns back towards you. You think she’s going to ask to be first, but instead, she goes and grabs Sorbet, dragging her out in front.“You want Sorbet to train first?”Bella nods. She seems to want to see what Sorbet has to offer.“You know.” Abigail says. “You and this Sorbet here could battle me and Conqueror. After seeing the way you handle wild pokemon, I’m curious to see if you can handle the heat of battle.”>Sure, if you’re up for it, Sorbet>You’d love a battle, but with a different pokemon>Thanks, but no thanks. You need regular training>Wait, you had a different idea for the date plans>Something else[Last one for tonight]
>>1790559>Besides, if you can just keep them away, you’re safe to see my face. I think we would have been swamped by spirits from using the time flower, now that we’re done it. But you just did so well that it doesn’t matter.”This is old, but 'm having a hard time understanding what Keira said here, I think there's a butt in the second sentence. Is she saying it'd be okay to see her face if we were in our bubble?
>>1792008>Sure, if you’re up for it, Sorbet
>>1792018I think she's relieved that even if we see her face, there won't be any evil spirits using us as a channel or something to strike out at her. We have the power to prevent that. Iunno.>>1792008Conqueror, huh?>Sure, if you’re up for it, Sorbet
>>1792008>>Thanks, but no thanks. You need regular trainingPutting Sorbet into a fight before we have given her any training at all seems a little too reckless for Herb.Thanks for running Gobble, when can we expect next thread?
>>1792008>Sure, if you’re up for it, SorbetWasn't Laki going to battle us? Remember?
>>1792008I changed my mind. Turn this >>1792029 into this >>1792026 please.
>>1792018[Ah sorry. She's saying that Herb seems capable of keeping himself and others around him safe from spirits. Since a major reason she keeps her face a secret is to avoid spirits shenanigans, it's safer than showing her face to a normal person. She's happy he's safe, but also almost dejected at how trivial it seems for him. The inferiority complex is growing]>>1792029[Thanks. I'm hoping to have Laki be even less impressed with Abigail horning in on that.]
>>1792066Hey Gobble, what is you opinion on freaky-Friday lewdbins?
>>1792066Gobble I wanna say I love Keria. Kinda hope we can help her through all her issues
>>1792074[I'm okay with it in principle but don't see a way of it working into the quest]>>1792078[I'm glad. She's been on a constant trip of eye opening experiences, and starting to feel like she doesn't really know her islands all that much after all. Or her duties and role.But she knows Herb and her Pokemon]
>>1792133I'm going to bed, Gobble. Thanks for running and have a good night!
>>1792133>don't see a way of it working into the questHana's a clever, kinky girl. That time flower can do a lot. If she ever borrowed Herb's body to go on a swim...Either way, night Gobble!
> sure if sorbet up for itIf she isn't, battle using bella or gobble and train sorbet afterwards using lessons and examples from the battleI love your characters, kieras growing on me with more development, we should do stuff to help stop the inferiority complex esrly
>>1792133>don't see a way of it working into the questreally? It seems pretty easy to work in to me, Herb has aura powers and has confirmed been able to pull himself out of his body. It was worked into last quest and while aura powers were a thing they had a much more minor role.But to be clear that kind of thing doesn't interest me that much personally.
I want hana to swim, laki/ hana to experience having a dick.Also herb being sub in lakis body, naked in an apron cookingHow can we restore kieras self confidence? We should aura mix again abd learn what she thinks of herb after all of this. Whar is Jane planning? Will val ever get development? How big is polus penis Bd does he low key want herbs dick? Will Abigail be a new companion or just part of this island?
>>1792066I kind of want Keira's inferiority complex to grow until she becomes a rival, as much as I like her.
>>1792245She's not really a trainer, so rival, not so much.If Herb keeps on completely invalidating her presence by accident I can see her ending up with a hell of a bitter streak though. What happens when she finds out that a literal god of the islands talked to him?
>>1792274>Keira slowly becomes bitter and starts acting more distantly>Herb tries his best to make her happier>Keira finds out that GOD(™) talked to him very early in the journey>Snaps at Herb>Herb breaks down, he knew how Keira was feeling and didn't want to make it worse, but he can't help what has been happening to him, and he doesn't know what else he can do.>Laki was right.I do not want this, this is pain.
>>1792008>“Sounds like a great date night.” Laki says. Except you’re struck by the lack of sarcasm. She seems like she’s really looking forward to it. She grabs your butt to your shock.mmmmmhm
>>1792008>Thanks, but no thanks. You need regular training
>>1792438Little late to the vote, friend.
>>1792530I don't see how given it was the last vote of the night.
Just a heads up, part 50 isn't in the archive
>>1792542Well at least there is the backup archive.https://yuki.la/qst/1747752
I'm unclear, when are we running next?
>>1793105when you get a good pair of running shoes
>>1792570Hey, Gobble. If you have an idea for when you can run next please shoot us a line here or post it up on twitter. I don't think you mentioned when you might be able to run next. Anyways, Thanks!
>>1792570I even asked last night and you didn't answer, saying you don't know when you can run next is a perfectly valid answer Gobble; though maybe not the preferred one.
>>1793105>>1793211>>1793527[Sorry! Thread in an hour ish!]
>>1793570oh that's wonderful, makes my evening.
>>1793570What a pleasant surprise! Awesome!
>>1793578>>1793580>>1793609[Here we go!]>>1793795
