I mean Its about as dirty as my old home in here....with a bit more dirt and fur everywhere to be entirely honest. I try my best not to look awkward or uncomfortable as I sit one one of the kind of itchy furred pillows set on the ground willynilly, since I guess Juniper and her brother yew can't really sit in chairs comfortably considering they used to be wolf beasts....or maybe they just prefer the floor? I mean neither of them exactly care for manners or proper behavior so it could very easily be the latter.Adjusting my legs, I scoot a bit closer to the middle of the pillow as Yew sits across from me, staring as Juniper runs back and forth, grabbing and fiddling with things to try to make me feel at home. If I wasn't used to Juniper's antics, I'd be a little disturbed with how her brother is just looking at me but now I'm just kind of used to it....at least he's stopped sniffing me and accidently insulting me."Ah, so that's how the air conditioner thing works!" Juniper says, with a nearly smug grin as the stuffy air in the cave turns cool and starts to finally flow, making it all feel a little less....well choking "now if only I could get the tv working""Gah, that things terrible sis" Yew groans as Juniper hops next to him, leaning against him as they both sit on their haunches, Juniper scratching her ears with her foot before she stops and smiles"So what do you think? Nice huh? Better than just some pit in the ground, for you at least right" She snickers "glad there's that ice thing that keeps it from getting too hot in here now""yeah yeah" Yew says nodding "never realized how horrible it was to fall asleep sweating""isn't that rude to say in front of guests?" Juniper asks, furrowing her brow before she shakes her head, apparently forgetting about it as she leans over me with a fangy smile "So, do you like it? Huh, huh? come on, tell me Carol!""Stop making so much noise!" Yew barks, making Juniper growl"Oh stop whining, we have a guest and you making just as much noise as I am!" She yells back at him"And you're making her scared like a sheep!" he says, pointing a claw at me "aren't you supposed to be friends or something""We are but you aren't letting her talk with your whimpering" Juniper says, lowering her ears"Wanna fight?" yew snorts as I just sit here quietly like a good guest, not want to make whatever this is worse than it already isJuniper glances at me, and frowns"I wanna fight something" She says"Her? you'd break her" Yew snorts "remember? humans are like twigs!""Not her you idiot!" She roars, shaking the whole cave as her locket glows. Yew just winces and turns to meCont
>>1830282"What?" He asks tilting his head, like it isn't obvious why I'm staring.what do I do? just sit here silently compliment their home ask if they always fight like this tell juniper we can fight something later try and steer the conversation away from violence relax for a bit and just enjoy their company. So....do you two have separate rooms or?do you have anything to eat? write in

>>1830305>How on earth did you keep cool before ac?
>>1830283> ask if they always fight like this
>>1830351> compliment their home>How on earth did you keep cool before ac?Should be funny seeing them pant to show how they kept cool.
"Do you always fight like this?" I ask without thinking, biting my tongue as I realize I might've just asked something I Shouldn't but its not like I can undo what I can say now is it?"Fighting?" they say in unison before Yew starts laughing as Juniper frowns "We aren't fighting, what would make you think that?""Sorry, just sort of got that feeling with all the yelling" I say shrugging as Juniper frowns and scrunches up her face as she tilts her head in confusion"But we didn't start biting or clawing eachother yet" She says with a blunt snort "so, yeah, anyways? What do you think of our den?""Its cozy, much nicer than I expected it to, kind of cramped but hey that reminds me of home...it could use a bit more furniture though" I say glancing around at the barely decorated "room" around me "So do you two have your own rooms or""why would we?" Yew asks, frowning"Yeah, waste of space and heat" Juniper says bluntly "if you don't want to sleep with the pack, leave""Mhm"Yew says with a nodI blink, trying to figure out how to tell them whatever magic is cooling their house probably could give them heat to, but I don't know how to word it or if they'd understand me but"Wait, how did you use to cool down?" I ask, turning to juniper as I cross my legs"let me show ya" She says, panting heavily and quickly, lowering her eyes a bit and batting at her hair to try and part it, before she starts "Like that""rolling in the dirt also helped" Yew says with a smile"But only if you dig deep enough" Juniper adds on"Oh, well that seems like it was a lot of work, guess your glad to have the ac now?" I ask happily as both of them nod "Well I'm just glad you two aren't sleeping out in the cold and rain, it wouldn't be right if you were""We didn't before we got up on two legs" Yew says"Yeah, we weren't dumb back then" Juniper says proudly as I realize I'm a little peckish"SOoooo, do you have anything to eat? I don't mean to intrude but I am a little hungry" I say, bowing my head as Yew cackles"You want raw meat? Don't trust the stove thing" Juniper says bluntly "We also have snacks""Well...." I say sighing and shaking my head "What kind of snacks?also if you want to fight something I'm sure we can find something for you to""Can I come?" Yew asks very bluntlyWhat do I do?see what snacks they have ask them about what they do here wrestle with juniper 1d20+strength Keep telling her how much I like their house try to clean up the place for them just lay back for awhile .....so do you two have any games or....aren't you two a little small for a pack? Why don't you have a shirt on yet Yew?! Where do you sleep anyways write in
>>1830445>see what snacks they have> ask them about what they do here> just lay back for awhile> .....so do you two have any games or>....aren't you two a little small for a pack?> Where do you sleep anywaysMuch as cleaning would be hillarious. Its more fun doing it when we are in our house and Juniper walks into our home. That's more than enough mess.
>>1830445>see what snacks they have> ask them about what they do here> .....so do you two have any games or>....aren't you two a little small for a pack?> Where do you sleep anywaysThey live pretty far away, not to mention we're going back soon?
>>1830445>see what snacks they have> ask them about what they do here> Keep telling her how much I like their house> try to clean up the place for them> .....so do you two have any games or>....aren't you two a little small for a pack?This is about what i expected from these two honestly
>>1830490Allegedly, yeah. But I expect trouble to find us first...
"And what kind of snacks do you have?"I ask curiously and politely as I can, keeping my hands folded on my lap as Yew shrugs, and lays back on the floor"Soda, chips, candy, fruit....stuff like that" He says lazily "Oh and jerky"Juniper sits up and sniffs the air quickly, probably trying to just smell out what they have."Yeah, that" She says nodding "I'll get up and see what we all actually have if you're curious, we tend just to bring back and eat whatever we're hungering for""Yes, but we at least have jerky, so you won't need anything else" Yew yawns"Tch, she might be a veggitariperson" Juniper says with a snicker "You know the people who don't enjoy life at all, still can't say the name right""Why worry bout that?" Yew asks as I clear my throat"Do you have any apples?" I ask, Juniper glances over and stands up, trotting over towards their....what I guess is their kitchen? its hard to tell with how much of a mess it is "Uh, thanks juniper but you didn't have""You're my guest and friend, yes I do" She says stubbornly, her tail wagging slightly as Yew yawns, his mouth opening just a bit too wide for his human face "Now where are they?""Alright, if you're okay with it" I say, turning from her to her brother, slowly leaning towards him as he closes his eyes "So what do you do around here anyways""Sleep" He says, sounding a little annoyed "Play fight, wrestle, do homework in her case, run around""Dig, roll in the mud, teach him how to read, laze around when its too hot" Juniper lists off as she begins to claw and dig through their piles of food "and any game we can think of to pass the time""What kind of games?" I ask, as they both look at me and shrug"Depends" Juniper says "Usually catch or tug of war""or digging contests, those are fun" Yew says tiredly"Oh hell yeah they are!" Juniper yells excitedly as her tail begins to wag and she digs a bit faster"Oh....alright, maybe we could play something later" I say shrugging, before I look around the room, and realize there's a few doorways leading deeper underground to other rooms "Uh, which room is the bedroom""Yes" Yew snorts"anywhere that's comfy" Juniper says, tossing an apple into the air as a thought runs through my mind"Aren't you two a little small for a pack?" I ask, as a deathly silence falls over the room, both of their ears fall and they hang their headsthen a blur of red flies towards me roll 1d20+ speed or wits
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1830557speed
Rolled 18 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1830557Wits.Sad doggo is not good...guess we may have to join the pack...honourarily...Guess there is no time to ask about sillier things...
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1830557Speed

>>1830594Weeeeelllllp. May be a wise reroll time.
Re roll? yes 1 1d20 no

Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1830601> no
I lean back, so the apple won't just hit me in the face. I hold it up, turning it around to make sure it isn't bruised or soft anywhere before I look back up and guiltily watch Juniper skulk back to the pillow pile next to her brother and flop down next to it as both tall wolf monsters curl up in balls and stare ahead with mournful lost looks in their eyes."there, enjoy" Juniper sighs What do I say Sorry if I brought up bad memories....I know what's it like to lose family thanks for the apple Idiot idiot! I didn't mean to say that!I'm not hungry anymore I have to go Juniper? are you feeling okay....I won't ask again, sorry write in
>>1830637> Sorry if I brought up bad memories>....I know what's it like to lose family> thanks for the apple> Idiot idiot! I didn't mean to say that!> Juniper? are you feeling okay>....I won't ask again, sorry>try to hug
>>1830637> thanks for the apple> Juniper? are you feeling okay> Idiot idiot! I didn't mean to say that!> Sorry if I brought up bad memories>....I won't ask again, sorryThat seems like the logical progression to me. Also the doggos need hugs, hugs and distractions
>>1830637> Sorry if I brought up bad memories> thanks for the apple> Juniper? are you feeling okayWe didn't lose any family, as far as we know.
>>1830656Well I meanLiterally you did Lose alice, as you don't know exactly where she is
>>1830661I'm assuming lose, meaning died. Outside of perhaps the grandparents, though it pretty obvious there's not many options for old age.
"Thanks for the" I begin to say before guilt and the realization of what I just did hit me "IDIOT IDIOT! I didn't mean to say that! I'm sorry if I brought up bad memories""its fine, we weren't people back then, just beasts" Juniper sighs, sounding like she's just tired now "its fine because"She's lying to herself, and yew isn't saying a thing. She curls herself up tighter, and I reach towards her, standing up as I cautiously move my arm nearer to her shoulder."Junipe?, are you feeling okay?" I ask as she closes her eyes and shakes her head "I won't ask again, I'm sorry""You didn't know" She says as Yew whines before her speaks"its how the lives of beasts went" He says simply"We weren't here when it happened, but it still hurts" Juniper says, tapping her head with one of her claws "its hard to explain....hard to remember""But the hole is still there" Yew adds with a whimpering sighWhat do I do? try to cheer them up somehow Hug juniper try to change the subject to something just leave them for now ask if there's anything they want to do? write in
>>1830726> try to cheer them up somehow> Hug juniper> ask if there's anything they want to do?Surely there is a way. Friends are like a pack.
>>1830726> Hug juniper> ask if there's anything they want to do?> try to cheer them up somehowHugs will solve everything forever
>>1830726> Hug juniper> try to change the subject to something
>>1830726>shrug> try to cheer them up somehow> try to change the subject to something> ask if there's anything they want to do?> just leave them for nowBoo! Hugs are for freaks! They fix nothing!
alright, I need to change the subject so they can get their minds off of their losses and I think I know an easier way to do just that, I hope. I'm not exactly sure if it'll work, but its worth a shot. I might be used to gloom and sadness but that doesn't mean I enjoy seeing people trapped in it."Hey, is there anything you guys want to do? just to pass the time? have a little fun before I go?" I ask as they just keep laying there, looking like dogs lazing around inside on a hot summer day, with a betrayed sad look in their eyes, their tails and legs shifting as they readjust to look at me. Yew just shakes his head, as Juniper sighs "Not really, I just want to stay here for now, sorry I guess Carol""Would a hug make you feel better?" I ask, as I reach my arms around her, and get pushed back by her fur covered palm"No" She grunts as she turns away from me "But thanks for trying I guess"I frown, feeling it deepen as my skin starts to feel cold like I've stepped out in the middle of the winter. If I just hadn't open my mouth they wouldn't be like this, I feel horrible now. this was supposed to be a fun little visit and I messed it all up.and to make matters worse, my locket begins to shake and lift up, glowing faintlyWhat do I do? find the monster my locket is sensing tell juniper Make sure Yew is safe herecontact Holi, tell her to tell Lyra there's trouble sigh and hang my head write inNot sure how long I can run forsince I've been up for like 24 hours and I feel myself starting to crash
>>1830803> find the monster my locket is sensing> tell juniper> Make sure Yew is safe hereIt's cool HM, sleep if you need to sleep
>>1830803> find the monster my locket is sensing> tell juniper> Make sure Yew is safe here>contact Holi, tell her to tell Lyra there's trouble> sigh and hang my head>Sorry...Maaaaan so much for fun doggo times. We fucked that one up hard.I had a sneaking suspicion when energy drinks were mentioned...
>>1830825>>1830819I at least want to make actual progress in the story
>>1830803> sigh and hang my head> find the monster my locket is sensing> tell juniper> Make sure Yew is safe herebetter safe than sorry.>contact Holi, tell her to tell Lyra there's troubleWe won't be able to make it back home before dark, so might as well have an impromptu sleepover?It's fine HM. Just have the fight ready for next time.
>>1830825I realized if we tell Juniper, we should probably let her know that if she wants to stay she can. Its part of the reason we should call for Lyra and Holi.
>>1830848It's ok HM, really. I'm more than pleased to learn more about Juniper and further our relationship with her, even if it is in one of the worst ways possible. (Not a complaint, losing family sucks but it can forge strong bonds between friends.)
Grabbing my locket, I sigh and hang my head. Well isn't this just the perfect timing."Juniper, there's a monster about" I whisper, leaning away from her brother, so he won't hear exactly what I'm saying. My friend's ears perk up and she looks up at me, he frown turning into a growl that flashes her fangs as she sits up on her haunches and then standup to her full height"Of course, just another thing to piss me off" She grumbles angrily "Well at least I'll have something to beat up""Hmm, what are you doing now?" Yew asks, still sounding out of it "Already feeling better sis?""No, I just want to get some fresh air with Carol" She says quickly "maybe running around a bit will help me""Oh, well then I'll come to" He says with a heavy sigh as he tries to get up"No only girls" Juniper growls as I head for the entrance of the cave, scanning the every nook and cranny for monsters "That doesn't make any sense" He growls, as I grab my locket and whisper Holi's name into it."Huh, what do you need?" She asks, as she appears in a puff of pink smoke, as I look over my shoulder again just to be sure there aren't any monsters lurking around "....you have a look on your face that tells me something has gone horribly wrong""there's monsters around here, could you tell Lyra's there's trouble? as quickly as you can?" I ask as I hear Juniper and her brother yelling as she forces him to stay down in their "Den""Well, it's my duty to help you anyway I can" she says, bowing as she takes off her hat, showing her short pink hair.and then she's gone as quickly as she camewhat do I do? look for the monster before lyra gets here wait for her!yeah this will have to be the last updateI am so sorry for all the delays and the short thread.>>1830865if I wasn't forced to try to run this without any sleep I would've had it ready this thread.
>>1830892> look for the monster before lyra gets hereFor Juniper's sake...Sorry to hear that HM. But I guess its something.
>>1830901I blame the Call of cthulu session I was in the day this was supposed to run before I overslept, forgot about it entirely. No idea why they held it at the middle of the night, but its my fault for forgetting about it and not planing around it, cause it made me stress out that I wasn't going to be able to get enough sleep for this, that I just couldn't fall asleep
>>1830892> look for the monster before lyra gets hereIt's perfectly fine HM, get some sleep and feel better, that's what matters.
>>1830892>if I wasn't forced to try to run this without any sleep I would've had it ready this thread.Yeah, I understand. Not easy to think up things without proper sleep.> look for the monster before lyra gets hereMight backfire on us, but we should get enough info on it so we can tell the others it's abilities.
Alright, well I'm know the monsters aren't down in the den, and Juniper can make sure it doesn't wander or run down into their burrow if she stays down or near it. She might be down there for awhile, wrestling with her brother to keep him from putting himself in the danger we have to rush towards as part of our "Jobs". And I need to find this monster fast, which just puts another obstacle in my way because I am surrounded by normal monsters, meaning they could be in danger and they don't really have a whole city to run to out here in their woodland village. So this is going to be rather difficult, I can already tell. People are in danger, and I'll have to be careful with my magic. Hmm well I've never balked from hard work before.So I begin to jog where my locket leads me, knowing Juniper will follow as soon as she calms down her brother and makes him stay in their home where its safe....ish? Not sure what kind of monster we're going to fight so I can't be sure their den will be safe from whatever magical abilities it holds.I pause, as my necklace begins to dart around in my hand pointing up, in front of me and every where between the two points.A horde of glowing gold eyes flashes, and I take a step back, gripping my locket as my heart skips a beat or two before it calms down and goes back to work. Cat....bat....catbat like creatures made of dripping blood are hanging from the branches and hiding in the bushes in front of me....a horde of little monsters."Bloody Nyanorde" my locket hisses "annoying little pests....brought upon by a stronger chaos monster's blood magic, don't get swarmed. They're weak to water, poison and fire. Only dangerous in numbers....which they have, So crush them all! and paint the town red with their stolen blood!"the sound they make, after they hear my locket is a mixture of hissing, growling and laughing as they all ready to pounce me like I'm the biggest, juiciest mouse in all the worldand we'll end here (might use this thread again, since I'll be running this in the front of next weeks schedule)Might start lost in da'ta quest next week, will decide when I wake upWill be posting the schedule when I wake up as well, so I can make it better than this oneI've archivedan will answer any questions when I wake upSorry about all this guys, once again
>>1830970Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. Get some sleep, and dream of Alex getting his locket.
>>1830970Would be nice to go for fancy fist assassin, while not joining the assassin guild. Will mounts be available in the cash shop?
>>1831206Yeah, you can buy mounts from the cash shop
>>1832273Omake: Sheep And Bunny, Another Wrong UniverseSheepie looked over to how it was raining cats and dogs... literally. Strangely the cats and dogs didn't get hurt when they hit the ground. And she and the others were safe inside the cave anyway."Let me guess, not back home yet?" The sheep girl asked sounding annoyed. "We might have to try a few portals more before we get home." Lazy Cat said as it wasn't a big deal. "At least this is still paid leave."The sheep girl then pointed to the sleeping hare girl in the lazy cat lap. "What if she gets in danger?""I got a few healing potions and stuff. Plus I did give you that club.""Whatever." Sheepie sat down inside the cave next to the other two. "Do you think we carry that monster girl virus with us?" "No, we got those vaccines for a reason and even if we did we are already monster girls so...""So who cares if we infect someone else? Darn it Lazy, you don't care if we fuck over our world more than it already is?" "Ugh... well I do care a bit, but I am just... too lazy to do more than we did." Groaning, Sheepie curled up next to the two other monster girls and went to sleep. AN: Fuzzy Piccles!
