Welcome to Do Your Best Quest. A slice of life adventure with supernatural elements where our poor main character is trying to do his best out of the situations at hand, but don’t worry, just trying your best is good enough for him.Twitter: https://twitter.com/QM91mDiscord: https://discord.gg/AmjbaTRArchives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=do+your+best+questAfter dropping the hobo at the police station, you and Osgood parted ways, he needed to go back and do an assignment for his classes. Osgood did say he will call you later when he’s available, as he felt you two didn’t have a proper conversation about your new alliance. You did exchange numbers with Lise, she’s going to call you when Constance wakes up, even though you know she will in 5 days.You’re walking towards the nearest subway station. You feel tired after all that happened, it’s getting dark… You give a quick glance to your phone… 21 missed calls, all of them from Scarlet, your crazy classmate. You feel scared; you have no idea what she's capable of.What do you do?>Call Scarlet and apologize.>Ignore it and just go home. You have better things to do.>Write In.
>>1853125>Text Scarlet and apologize.
A great man once said: “Don’t talk to women when they are mad, they will fucking kill you”… At least, someone should’ve said that, right? Anyway, the smartest decision right now is to text her to apologize. As soon as the text is sent, she replies back.“You made me cry, u know? >_>” She easily cries. That doesn’t mean anything.“That’s why I apologize.” You reply.“OK, Apologize accepted. But u owe me ice cream, k?” Really? That easily? “Tell Osgood to apologize too >:-(““That’s not my responsibility.”“-_-““Don’t -_- me.”“-________________________-“ She’s childish. “Fuck him; even if he’s cute he can't disregard the feelings of a cute innocent girl, Am I right? :P” The way she writes pisses you off a bit… What do you respond.>”I suppose…”>”I personally wouldn't classify you as innocent and I don't really blame him for disliking you.”>”So remember what you promised me?”>"I'm tired, I'll talk to you later.">Write In.
>>1853237>”I suppose…”>”So remember what you promised me?”If you're not an Uccelli supporter, there's always an option to gain another potential waifu through this. Play it off to Uccelli that we were acting the way we did to her all those times to get her the self-confidence she needed, or something.
>>1853237>>Write In.Your cuteness doesn't really grant you any special privileges like that desu>>1853245Never stick your dick in crazy.
>>1853237>Write in"Then bring it up to him. He can't figure it out if he doesn't know what he did wrong. Also, you'd probably be able to squeeze another ice cream or crepe out of him if you do it right.">>1853247>Never stick your dick in crazy.Agreed.
>>1853247>Never stick your dick in crazy.I meant her promise to get us to meet up with a friend of hers. She's all for Osgood :^)
“I suppose, but your cuteness doesn’t really grant you any special privileges like that. Bring it up to him. He can’t figure it out if he doesn’t know what he did wrong. Also, you’d probably be able to squeeze another ice cream or crepe out of him if you do it right.” You aboard the train while typing.“It should! I don’t waste my time all morning to be treated like I’m not this cute! Anyway, I’ll squeeze him more than just ice cream if you know what I mean. :-)”…That’s… Uhm…“Isn’t that too soon?”“HJASGDAjsa! FORGET THAT! That sounded so sluuuuty. I meant something like a nice dinner and clothes. D:”“K.”“T_T”…It seems your conversation have reached a dead end. You soon will arrive to your station. Do you want to bring up her promise? The one about presenting you one of her cute friends?>Yes.>No.>Ask her for something else.>Write In.
>>1853339>Yes.>Also, I'll delete that last message from my phone if you help me with my style.
>>1853339Backing >>1853350, but also add in :^) at the end. The only emoticons we'll even bother using are :^) ;_; and ;_;7
You decided to remind her about her promise.“Don’t forget about your promise.”“?”“You were going to present me one of your friends.”“We could do a double date with Osgood. :D.” You arrive to your station. You get off the train.“That was not part of the deal. Also, I’ll delete that last message from my phone if you help me with my style. :^)”“r u blackmailing me, boy? I thought you were nice >:( I’ll help you out if you buy me stuff. I don’t care about dumb messages X)” Why did she act embarrassed then…“What stuff?” “I don’t know, Ice cream, some clothes? Nothing too expensive. You don’t look like you have any money.”“I’ll think about it, now about your friend.”“Tell me what your heart desires is ;-)”…What do you want?>”Someone cute like you.”>”You talked about someone liking guys with glasses.”>”Someone not as crazy as you.”>”You know them better than me, pick one. I’ll trust you.”>Write In.
HmmmmmmmmmmmSaying >”Someone cute like you.”Might increase our handsomeness statbut>”You know them better than me, pick one. I’ll trust you.”Would avoid awkwardness and not shy away from the Uccelli routeHard choice lads
>>1853463>”You talked about someone liking guys with glasses.”>"Also, serious talk, good luck with Osgood. Keep a level head around him, and you'll do fine. And ease up on focusing on what he likes and dislikes. He'll like you if you focus on being you, and if he doesn't, he wasn't worth it."
Fuck it, let's be a tease>>1853463>”Someone cute like you.”
>>1853463>someone cute like you
>>1853477This i guess.Man, get a little power and you guys ditch best teaccher
>>1853519While I'm still thinking of Nina as final girl, we should see her friends in case they have flames, as well as increase the cast a bit.
>”Someone not as crazy as you.”
You know what, changing my vote here >>1853488 to this here >>1853477. I still want to keep the Hot for Teacher route open.
The Ucelli route is end game but we need to raise our knowledge on dating first
>>1853549>>”Someone not as crazy as you.”
>>1853519Calm your titsWe'll never hit it off with the mature older lady if we don't start easy
>>1853463Middle ground.>”Someone as cute as you, but not as crazy."
While flirting seems like something fun to you, you decided to give the most innocuous answer:“You know them better than me, pick one. I’ll trust you.”“OMG! XD! I will not disappoint you! I know who will perfectly appease your desires X)”“I’m looking forward to it.” “You tell me when you’re free for a date! And if you want my tips I’m available whenever you want. I would recommend u to hang out with first before the date tho. You don’t want to show up like that.” Well that was a bit rude.“I’ll tell you when I’m ready later.”“Don’t make me wait too much! I’ll be busy trying to contact Osgood for the rest of day, so if don’t answer u know y. :-)”“Don’t worry.” Well, that’s that. Make sure to contact Scarlet later if you want help for your appearance and when you feel finally ready for a date. After your little text exchange with your new friend, you arrive home, you open the door and your father receives you.“Johnny, I have great news.” He sounds happy, this is weird.“Hello dad. How was your day?” You reply.“I have great news, what do you expect?” He looks disappointed. “Son, you know about my work right?”“Yeah, what about it?”“We strike a deal with a bigger company, and they decided to promote me to a higher position overseas!”“That’s great!... Wait, are we moving?”“Not exactly, I’m moving!” He says all excited. “With a new big fat check, new commodities and a new place that isn’t this dump.”“Wait… what you mean?”“I’m not bringing you there, are you crazy? You barely speak English and you expect to move with me there?” Ouch.“…What’s going to happen to me?”“I have a proposition, Johnny. It’s no secret we don’t have the best type of dad/son relationship, so I don’t really want to deal with your shit in another country, so you will stay here in shit country with one my close pals who was willing to take you under their tuition.”“…What’s the proposition?” You’re confused.“Don’t interrupt me when I’m talking.” But he stopped talking for a second. “You’re a nice enough kid, you know? Like I expected something worse but you’re the type that doesn’t make a big ruckus or want everyone to help them like whiny bitches and shit, so think this as my gift to you. So, you have 2 options here, legally my friend will take care of you regardless, but if you want, I can rent this place for you and you can live here alone. You like that fucker, Greg, right? So it wouldn’t be a problem.”“And the other?”“You can move to my friend’s dump with him, he will be your all-time guardian and I’ll give you some cash every two weeks or so, how does that sound? Which one you prefer?”>”I prefer living here.”>”I’ll move with your friend.”>”Are you really abandoning me? Is this even legal?”>Write In.
>not picking the more popular optionSad!>>1853688>”I prefer living here.”A house all to ourselves is the best thing in our current situation
>>1853688>”I prefer living here.”Our own house! Cool. Now we can actually tidy this place up after our dad fucks off to who knows where. And we'll need to, if we're gonna DO OUR BEST
>>1853688>”I prefer living here.”>Write-inDoes Greg or your other friend know about this? Are they even willing?
>>1853688>>”I prefer living here.”
>>1853688>”I prefer living here.”"Also, when you inevitability remarry your new secretary, I get to alter your will on your deathbed through legal finagling to ensure I get most of your money, and leave them with nearly nothing."
>”I prefer living here.”>>1853697SAAAADD!!! :(
>>1853697>>1853718>>1853697>>1853718Oh fuck, I'm dumb, for some reason I thought that one was the most popular answer, my bad, it’s not going to happen again.
>>1853726Maybe you could rewrite the response and put some lines to seperate the new from the old
Not really a tough decision for you.“I prefer living here.”“Right, I guess small shitty apartments are your thing.” It will be your own place, so that’s a plus in your book."Also, when you inevitability remarry your new secretary, I get to alter your will on your deathbed through legal finagling to ensure I get most of your money, and leave them with nearly nothing." You say half-jokingly.“Haha! Don’t be stupid! I’ll never get married. Whatever I’ll have left by that time I’ll waste it in some dumb shit like a big ass car.” He laughs, he took it with humor. First time you make him laugh, better late than ever.“Anyway does Greg or your other friend know about this? Are they even willing?”“Of course they do, I told ‘em hours ago. In fact, we’re going to hit the bar later, wait, scratch that, I’m leaving now.” He looks at the clock.“Wait, when are you going to… wherever you are going?”“What? Do you want this place for yourself now? I’m leaving tomorrow night. I’ll see you later, cheers.” He leaves with a grin on his face. He didn’t even invite you to go with him, what an ass, but at the same time, he’s kind enough to pay rent for you. Anyway, you are left with nothing to do…What do you do?>Text Uccelli and Amelia about what happened earlier with Osgood.>Watch the news.>Study.>Write In.

>>1853813>>Text Uccelli and Amelia about what happened earlier with Osgood.>Work out
(Fuck, I fucked up the landlords’ name; it’s Craig, not Greg. I’m stupid.)You decided to first text Amelia and Uccelli about what happened earlier with Osgood, informing your team is a must. You created a group conversation in Chat-Now with the two of them. You write a big paragraph detailing what happened with good Ol’ Barry.“Are you okay?” Uccelli asks.“Yeah, I’m fine, he was barely a threat.”“Johnny! Stop doing all these dangerous things without us!” Amelia replies.“Sorry, it was out of my control, but Osgood had my back.”“At least we know we can trust him. It’s good that our group is getting bigger.” Uccelli writes.“But he was supposed to be the rookie! I was going to be her commander >:-(“ Amelia replies to Uccelli.“…I think we should add him to this group chat. We need to do a meeting too.” You add Osgood to the group, for some reason you didn’t before. He doesn’t seem to have his phone on. Poor guy he’s going to have a rough introduction with the rest of the team.“What about this Saturday? I’m free Saturday.” Amelia says. You don’t have anything to do Saturday.“Saturday it is.” You write.“Where?” Uccelli asks.“In Johnny’s apartment, everyone knows how to get there.” Amelia writes.“I’m not sure… It’s better if we discuss this later.” Uccelli says.That’s pretty much it. It seems everyone get in their business after. You decided to work out while watching the news:Like mentioned before, the dictatorship of ‘Lazarus Don Gordon Jr’ is in full effect, and as far of dictatorships go, this one is pretty lenient. But news are still very skewed to favor the government. They show videos of the politician you met before, Elicarto Lodyington. He seems to be running against Gordon in the elections at the end of the year; he had strong words against Gordon. Your country, the beautiful “Praincijan” has the chance to achieve democracy again without getting it back by force, a very rare phenomenon. But there is still something eerie about him, but you can’t put it into words.During other news, the terrorist group ‘The Host of Rebellion’ made news today; they made an attack in one of the biggest city in the country, Topakasa, far away from here. The news says they are a group made to destroy the government because they don’t believe they will play fair at the elections and well... It is a dictatorship, so you wouldn’t expect them to play fair, right? They killed one of Gordon’s advisors; he didn’t seem to be important in the grand scheme of things. The news do say the group said it wasn’t responsible for the attack, but they basically refute it by showing pics of the bomb with the group’s logo…[1/2]
>>1854010It seems a religious group has started to gain followers; it looks like they are waiting for the end of the world. The government is planning on banning this cult. The station implores it citizens to report anyone who looks suspicious.Hey, the superhero Osgood was talking about it’s on TV, his name is “Wildflame”… That has to be one of the worst name you ever heard. He beat up some dude who tried to steal from a bank. What a cliché.It seems a new type of mental disease is appearing in the country, people are having some type of panic attacks that made them go crazy. You wonder if it has anything to do with the flames.The moment the sports recap started you decided that’s enough news for now. You feel how your exercise made you feel stronger. Your Athletics stat goes up! But not enough to level up… After taking a shower you went to bed. During the night you heard you father arriving, he sounds totally wasted, it seems Craig is helping him. You decided not to bother him and keep on sleeping.It’s a beautiful Wednesday morning! You’re ready to tackle the day! You have no plans for the day, but school is a must…What do plan to do today after classes?>Make plans with Scarlet, time to become handsome.>Buy a gift for your father. He’s leaving today.>Make plans with Uccelli.>Make plans with Amelia.>Make plans with Osgood.>Write In.+Athletics.[2/2]
>>1854013>Make plans with Scarlet, time to become handsome.>Make plans with Uccelli.
>>1854013>School + gift + ScarletLet's get our dad some playing cards or cigarsHe seems like the type of guy who'd like that gift
>>1854013>Make plans with Scarlet, time to become handsome.>Make plans with Uccelli.We still need to find a good dojo to train at.
>>1854013>>Make plans with Amelia.
>>1854013>Make plans with Scarlet, time to get handsome>get a gift for dad, he's leaving todayHopefully this'll get us in his will, and maybe an allowance as well
You decided to make plans with Scarlet first, then later meet up with Uccelli too. You text them both in your way to your school, Green Foothill High School, name it after the foothill it was built on. You receive first a response from Uccelli:“I’ll gladly hang out with you. But I can’t right after school, I have a meeting with one of my students’ parents. I hope you don’t mind waiting for me.”“Then it’s a date.”“I’ll see you in class, Ando. Have a safe trip.” She ignored your comment.Now time to chat with Scarlet.“Is Osgood going? :D”“No. I want your help. I want to be look better.”“Aw, that. Then get your wallet ready, you will learn how to treat a cutey like me!”“I don’t have much money with me.”“With some is enough, dw. I’m ur friend, u know? :-)” Friend? Really? That was quick.You had classes as normal. Nothing stands out at all, what a boring day to live. But the fun will start soon. In the lunch break, Scarlet gets near you.“Hey Johnny! I was wondering do you know about Jackey Frosties?”“No, not really…”“It’s a place where they serve the most delicious ice cream in all the city! It’s pretty cheap too.”“Define cheap.”“Mmm… You’ll see. We’re going there first, okay? Then we’ll get you new clothes… or should we start with a haircut?” She ponders.“What are you two up to?” Your classmate from the other day appears, the same one who move Scarlet away from you.“Hey, Terry, what’s up?”“You two got real friendly all of the sudden and I was wondering why.”“That’s because we’re friends dummy, besides he’s helping me in my conquest for love!” In her what now?“I see…”“Also, we’re going to make this handsome young man shows his charms to the world!” She says.“Is he going to get naked?...” Terrance asks confused.“WHAT?! NO! He’s going to keep that for himself. I will give him fashion tips.”“So that’s means you…”“Yes! We’re going shopping later… maybe, I’m not really sure. Haven’t decided yet.”“Can I go?”“What? Why? No! You’re only going to waste our time, and it’s all for Johnny, right?”>”Sorry pal, I want this to go as great as it can.”>”Damn right is my time, sis.”>”Nah, he can come too. Can’t promise you won’t get bored though.”>Write In.
>>1854220Turn up the sass to 100>”Damn right is my time, sis.”
>>1854220>”Nah, he can come too. Can’t promise you won’t get bored though.”>"I kind of need a dude's opinion as well. Besides, I'm kind of curious about how you two know each other.">"Also, no haircuts, but I'm down with shampoo."
>>1854235thisaww shit, he wants scarlett
>>1854252That's why we don't need an orbiter around to ruin this for usFuck himIf she's full of shit, we'll understand by ourselves
>>1854220>”Nah, he can come too. Can’t promise you won’t get bored though.”
>>1854235Ahh a love Trial Between our Bishounen Older Friend, A Clingy Yandere, and the Cling Yandere's probably child hood friend.>>”Nah, he can come too. Can’t promise you won’t get bored though.”
“Nah, he can come too. Can’t promise you won’t get bored thought. I kind of need a dude’s opinion as well. Besides I’m kind of curious about how you two know each other.”“Whaaaat? You’re way too much of a nice guy. Well that’s why we ended up being friends.” She gently punches you on the shoulder and smiles. “Thanks. I’ll try not to bother you guys.” Terry says.“Too late for that... and I was going to mention, this is serious business! You’ll follow MY orders.” Scarlet nods.“Also, no haircuts, but I’m down with shampoo.” You say to Scarlet.“Wait, you don’t use shampoo?!” Scarlet looks startled, she gets up from her sit a bit and smells your hair. “You liar, you smell nice!” I mean, you’re no caveman either.“Forgive her, she forgets about personal space often.” Terry apologizes.“You’re starting to get annoying and we haven’t left the school yet.” Scarlet stares daggers at Terry. “We’ll going for Ice cream too, so you will have to buy me one too.”“You’re going to get fat if you eat too much.” Terry smiles.“Ugh! Shut it!” Scarlet looks annoyed.After school you three get ready to leave to Jackey Frosties first. Scarlet is standing next to you and far away from Terry, you’re in the middle and feel a bit uncomfortable.“So how did you guys meet each other?” You break the ice.“Our parents were classmates in college and good friends and every New Year my family came to visit hers. We’ve known each other since we were 8, I think.”“You mean invading our home because our apartment is near the fireworks show?” Scarlet replies.“It doesn’t invalidate what I said.”“Yes it does! You talk like we were super friends or something.”“But we’re friends, remember I was always there every time one of your love conquests went so—““Shut up! Don’t remind me!” She covers her ears. “Basically we do favors to each other even though we aren’t really close.”“Like what?” you ask.“Well, like modeling for his dumb art club!”“Nude?” You raise an eyebrow.“He wishes.” She says cockily.“What else?” You wonder.“Being friendly with you was one of them too.” She says honestly. You wonder why he did that.“Scarlet, don’t say that after just knowing him for one day!” Terry says.“’Being honest is the key component for friendship’ that’s what you always say! Besides I like him way more than you.” She grabs your arm and moves you away from him.“Sorry, if our conversation is getting uncomfortable.” Terry tries to diffuse the awkwardness by making it more awkward.You shrug. “At least you two are honest.”“Jackey Frosties! Let’s go inside Johnny!” She drags you inside the shop. The place looks childish, but it’s full of sweets and, you guessed it, ice creams.[1/2]
>>1854434“This place is neat.”“They have great variety and it’s cheap.” She smiles. “What do you want? Terry will pay for us.” She shows you his wallet.“When did…”“Shh… He doesn’t need to know yet.” Scarlet smiles. “He told me he wasn’t going to bother us if I tried to befriend you; he’s a twit and a liar, so he deserves it.” She goes to the counter to ask for her ice cream.Terrance trails behind and finally catches up to you two. “She took my wallet, right?”“Yep.” You reply.“Good thing I took some money out before. She has no shame.” He shrugs. He seems to be used to all Scarlet’s shenanigans. Scarlet appears in front of you two with a big cup of ice cream for her and an ice cream bar for you.“We’re good, let’s go. Time to make you charming.” Scarlet smiles while devouring her food. “What do you want my help first for? Hair? Skin? Clothing? Confidence? I can help you make you a smooth talker too.” >”Does it matter? Let's do all of them.”>”Just make me look like the main character I’m.” >”Just give me the gist of it first and let’s buy the necessary things.”>”I already know how to talk to the ladies.”>Write In.[2/2](Last reply of the day, sorry for taking so long to write)
>>1854437>”Does it matter? Let's do all of them.”Full package
>>1854437>Just make me look like the main character I’m.”Except not in caveman speak.
>>1854437>>Write In.BISHONEN. SPARKLES.Seriously though,>”Does it matter? Let's do all of them.”
>>1854437>”Does it matter? Let's do all of them.”>"I want to get to the point where I can almost sparkle at will."
>>1854694Pretty sure we used up most of our money on buying Constance that phone. We have maybe thirty dollars, Just something to keep in mind
Just re-checked we have 15 Dollars :(
>>1854809>>1854806We can just offer to pay her back by helping her with Osgood.
>>1854812I agree we'd probably need to borrow money from either Scarlet or Terry but asking a Yandere for money in exchange for pimping out our team member seems kind of scummy. When the time comes I say we should just offer to pay her back after we get some money.Speaking of which what ever happened to Calamity and his Clinic? Do we still have a job?
>>1854834Yes, you still have a job there and the clinic is open, supposedly you can go whenever you want. Since Constance is not there anymore, he didn't have the urge to call you. Sorry for not mention it before.
Speaking of the clinic, we never did finish clearing out that room did we?
>>1854908Yeah, there is still one room left to clean.
>>1855059Shouldn't be so bad now that we have Philo backing us. Either that or much, much worse.
“Does it matter? Let’s do all of them.”“Don’t be impatient! One at the time. I’m just a girl, cute, but just a girl.” She says while stuffing her face with ice cream. “We will start with the fun part and get you new clothes.”“I don’t have that much money.”“You only have to pick them correctly. Not all expensive clothes are good ones. How much do you have anyway.”“15 Gor$.”“Uhm… Yeah, you’re right; I don’t know how much we can get out of that. Let’s get one cool outfit and buy you decent make-up.” “Make-up?” You and Terrance say at the same time.“Ugh! Seriously! Even if you’re guys you should use make-up. This is why neither of you stand out.”“Can I borrow money from either of you two?” You ask.“I’ll lend you what I saved from her.” Terry says. “It’s not much either.” He lends you 20 bucks.“Don’t worry about that, I’ll do my best to make you look fabulous as cheaply as possible.” Scarlet smiles.You three went to the shopping district in the Northern part of the city. Same district as the arcade and the electronics store that blew up days ago. It reminded you about the deaths of your not friends. Unknowingly to you that was the spark that lead you in this journey to become handsome. May they rest in peace. You three enter to a giant clothing store. You didn’t catch the name.Scarlet gave you multiple choices for outfits, Terrance helped you pick one, but you can tell he’s bored out of his mind. You have no idea what you’re doing. You try most of them until you ended up choosing the one you like the most.“You look great! Very elegant.” Scarlet smiles.“Thanks.” You say.“It’s very close to our uniform…” Terry downer replies.“You aren’t paying attention. Just look at him! It’s completely different. Let’s buy more of that type.”“Buy him more casual clothes…”“Okay… I guess.” Scarlet looks annoyed.You ended up buying more casual clothing in the end, they don’t look special to you, but Scarlet said they fit you better than your regular ones, maybe is a size thing? You don’t know, but slowly you feel you're able to understand this fashion knowledge. You Handsomeness stat goes up! But not enough to level up yet. You’re temporarily in level 2; it will wear off once you get to bed. Before splitting up, Scarlet gave you tips on how to wash your hair and how pick outfits in general. There is a lot more thought about it than you ever imagined. No lessons about confidence or how to be smooth, sadly. She did say she’s also free tomorrow if you want to do this again.Now it’s time to go on a date with Uccelli, oh yeah! She may not call it that, but it's a date, god damn it! While walking towards the station, you received a text message. It's her:“I’m free now, where do we meet up?”You’re carrying the bags with your new clothes, also it will take you a while to get to school from here...
>>1855706What do you respond?>”At my apartment.” >”At School.”>”At Il Grande’s.”>Write In.+Handsomeness+20 Gor$ debt
>>1855710How much money do we have after shopping?
>>1855710>”At my apartment first, then we can walk someplace nice.”
>>1855710>”At my apartment.”
>”At my apartment.”
>>1855719That's a great idea. Let's start at home, Pack a picnic basket and spend time in the Park
Why did we even do this?
“At my apartment” You text back.“I’ll see you there then.” She writes.Time to get home. You take the train home without much happening except at some point Philonune starts a conversation. You pretend you’re talking in your phone.“I feel like we haven’t made progress.” Philonune says.“What do you mean? Just yesterday we beat that hobo guy; he was working for the Creator.”“I know, but we’re going aimless.”“We still have to wait to the solstices or whatever it was.”“We should gather more information, use your devices later.”“I mean, we only have to wait for Constance to wake up, we can ask Athelone about what is going to happen.”“Oh, I see, you have been taking this seriously.” Philonune nods.“Take it easy.”Philonune goes back to his flame form. Promptly you find yourself in your apartment, it seems your father’s stuff are no longer here. He may have left to airport. He’ll probably message you at some point. You leave your stuff in your room then wait for Uccelli to arrive.After a while you hear someone knocking the door, it should be Uccelli… But it isn’t, it’s your dad.“I forgot something.” He says in a bad mood.“Oh, hello.”“And good bye. Before I go, do you remember my friend I talked about yesterday?”“Yeah…”“He’s going to visit you tomorrow, he will be your guardian, remember. Be kind to the sunnuvabitch, okay?”“Okay…” “His name is Rufus, don’t forget that.”“I will not.”He takes some keys lying around the table and opens the door before leaving the apartment for the last time.>”Have a nice trip.”>”Send presents.”>”…”>Write In.>>1855973To waste money and gain a bit of Handsomeness.

“Have a safe trip” That's the nicest thing you can say to him. and besides, without him, who’s going to pay the rent?“…Take care.” He leaves.After waiting 5 minutes you say: “Jackass…”This is probably the final time your father, Stan Ando, steps foot inside this apartment. 15 minutes later, Uccelli arrived to your apartment. She’s wearing different clothes than usual.“Hi, Ando… Wow, you look better; finally you’re taking care of your appearance, that’s very good.”“You too are looking different.”“Oh, this? It’s my disguise. I can’t go to your apartment dressing normally.” It’s not really working though, she still looks like always.“I… see.” You like the puffy hair…“So… are we going somewhere or what? I have something important to tell you.” She asks while looking around.Where do you want to go?>”Let’s go to your favorite coffee shop.”>”I’m taking suggestions.”>”There is an old restaurant around, want to go there?”>Write In.

>Operation "Picnic in the Park" is a go!!!
“Let’s pack a lunch and go to the park” You reply. It’s your cheapest option.“Mmh, that sounds good to me, I need fresh air.” You can almost hear her thoughts. She’s as broke as you are.“You like sandwiches?”“I don’t mind them, but I’ll cook something for us, let me see your fridge.”You ended up doing sandwiches anyway, mainly because you didn’t have any of substance on your fridge to make a good meal or one Uccelli wanted to make. You took the bus to the nearest park.The Majestic Red Park of Pokyo Lokyo is the biggest and most beautiful park in the whole country and is well known tourist destination in the world. There is a big lake in there with some finishing aficionados. You can go fishing here if you’re bored or desperate for food. It’s called red because for some reason, at autumn when the leaves start falling, the water starts changing color with the red leafs and becomes a thinly more scarlet.“Have you come here before?”“Once, with my mom.”“I see. Let’s sit around.”You both sit in a bench that’s looking towards the lake. You open the basket you bring, and took a sandwich out.“Your text in the morning had great timing, you know?”“I knew you wanted to meet me.” You raise an eyebrow.“Well, yeah a bit, but not that way. Last night I read something in the internet that peaked my attention.” She takes her phone out and starts sweeping between pages. “This.” She shows you her phone. There is a weird site on the phone. In it there is an explanation about the rules of the “deadly game” you 4 are playing. Mainly it talks about the solstice and the crystal stuff, nothing you don’t know about.“How did you find it?”“In the comments section about the bombing from the other day.”“Don’t tell you downloaded the app…” You remember it from the other day, the weird mask with glasses.“What? No, it was a link and I just clicked it.” Maybe she just searched more thoroughly“I wonder who is hosting this site… and more importantly why.”“I don’t know, I just wanted you to know.”“Why didn’t you tell us before?”“I did yesterday, you didn’t receive my message? It was during the day, so you were busy fighting that guy…” Probably it was drowned with all the messages from Scarlet. But you talked to her before… Maybe you didn’t notice? You look at your conversation with Uccelli and it’s there, just wrongly linked…“It’s there, my bad, I didn’t saw it.”“It’s okay, but we should track it somehow.”>”I’m not tech savvy but I don’t think there is a way to track it.”>”Uhm… We don’t know how.”>”We should email the admin of the site.”>”We will see later, let’s enjoy the breeze and the sandwiches instead.”>Write In.

>>1856349>>”Uhm… We don’t know how.”
>>1856349”We should email the admin of the site.
“…Looks like I’m going to have to earn money for a burner phone…”“What do you mean?” Uccelli asks.“There was a link for an app to download in the same comment section; I think it’s probably malware or something worse… All I know it’s tied to all this mess. Maybe I’ll just email the admin and ask about it.”“I see…” It doesn’t look like she understands.“We will see later, let’s enjoy the breeze and the sandwiches instead.” You bite yours.“Sorry for relying all of this on you.” She looks down.“It’s no big deal.” You try to cheer her up; she takes a sandwich for herself too. “So, you look like you’re getting back into teaching again. Like you’re on top of the game, y’know?”“Yeah, I was trying lately… But that didn’t go so well. The meeting I mean.”“What happened?”“My student, Jeremy, he’s… a trouble kid. Remember Blake? Like him but a little less violent. I had a meeting with his parents so we together could guide and help Jeremy to take school seriously, and it wasn’t my idea anyway, remember your P.E. Teacher? He was the Jeremy’s classroom teacher, but he’s in the hospital thanks to Blake’s outburst.” The teacher he punched with Ethinael while chasing you after he got his flame back. “Anyway, His parents just began screaming at me, I swear to god, I just finished talking and they went nuts… I didn’t say anything at all about Jeremy, only that he needed our help to straight him up, but they blamed me and the school for all of it, they even treating me to get me fired, hell, her mother almost slapped me for some reason, just violent people all around… I was so scared I ran away. I never thought about something like that ever happening. Mr. Conti and the principal had to deal with them…”“So, are you going to sue? They wanted to hurt you.” Assholes.“Can I?... Now I wish I could, I don’t have any money to pay for a lawyer anyway, besides the school isn’t backing me up on this one. I probably get fired for losing control of the situation or something” Her gloomy side is starting to show. “I was trying so hard to make things better… But that’s enough of me, probably I’m overthinking it and my job is safe. But that wasn’t the impression I got… So Johnny, tell me about you… How have you been lately?

(Just to clarify, you and Amelia are half-siblings. You share the same mother.)“Well you told me so much just now. Would be unfair if I didn’t tell anything back…” You explain to her about your dad fucking off to who knows here, leaving you alone. 2 dads and both have abandoned you, but hey, what can you do?“That’s terrible, why would he do that? Even before I knew you better you always strike me as a good kid. How can parents treat their children like this? I don’t get it.” You remember her telling you were boring before, she changed it.“It’s not all bad, at least the apartment is mine now. You don’t have to worry about other people seeing you there.”“I still don’t feel comfortable with the idea of anyone finding out that we’re friends” What? Are you that terrible? “Rats, I didn’t mean it like that; I don’t want rumors to spread or any type of misunderstanding. We talked about this before. Does this make you uncomfortable? The fact I dress up like this?”“It’s okay, I get it.”“I made it all about myself again… Please continue talking. No, wait, I sounded insensitive, it's like I didn't care about what you're saying.... Ugh… I’m sorry, I…” She firmly grabs her skirt. “Just tell me, do you hate your father? For what he did?”>”It’s not his fault he dislikes a kid he barely knows.

“I don’t really care.” You reply. Uccelli looks surprised. “You don’t pick our blood but you pick your family, I didn’t pick him so I don’t care.”“I…” Uccelli is in shock for some reason. “I never thought about it like that.”“Besides, it’s not like he actually spends any time at home. I’m used to him not being there.”“I see… Regardless of that, you keep surprising me every time we chat.” She stares at the lake… “Where was this Johnny all these years? I know I’ve been your teacher only for 2 years, but still…” She talks like you were some type of failure…“Waiting for an inter-dimensional war between demons to drag him out.” You joke.“Haha.” She laughs, she sounds cute. “Okay, enough of this.” She stands up.“What?”“It’s getting late, Ando.”“Oh, I thought you meant something else…”“Like what?”“I don’t know.”“You’re the one full of surprises, not me.”“I’m not sure if I qualify as ‘being full of surprises’”“You’re to me.” She smiles.You stand up and follow her.

You decided to leave her at the station. While walking towards it you had a little chat about what each other hobbies. During the talk she confessed she still has the plushy you gave her. She also said she will give a present soon.“So… here we are.”“I had a good time. Thanks for coming with me.”“I had a good time too, thanks you for listening to my ramblings. I want to give you the favor back somehow.”“It’s not necessary.”“You make me want to repay you even more after you say that. Good-bye, Ando. See you at school.” She leaves. It’s not too late, but it’s dark, you have some free time… Your temporary level 2 of Handsomeness will wear off when you get to bed.

>>1856903>>Go to work at Calamity’s clinic.The Doctor must be feeling miserable about Constance, and we need to pay Scarlet back. Or possibly Terry, seeing as she raided his wallet...
You decided to go to work. You wonder how Doctor Calamity has been lately, he was miserable the last time you heard him. The attempt at kidnapping left a mark on him too. At Calamity’s clinic everything looks way spookier than you remember… Aimless flames are floating around everywhere, and they are too many of them. This place is scaring you. You get to Mr. Calamity’s counter.“Ando, boy! I thought you were never going to come back! I mean, fending off those thugs must have been a nerve breaking situation you didn’t want to repeat.” He looks extremely happy to see you.“Mr. Calamity, how have you been? And that’s no bother, I just was busy lately.”“I’m not doing well, quite honestly. I’m worried about Constance, she hasn’t waked up since the attack and I can’t help but feel it’s my entire fault.” It somewhat is.“Don’t worry; I have the feeling she will wake up very soon.” You’re sure of it. Athelone told you.“Thank you for your kind words, yes, it’s better to keep our spirits up!” Like these flames are? “The little girl needs every bit of hope in her side. So what brings you here?”“I want to work today, if you don’t mind.”“Excellent! I’ll gladly accept your help. You know about our deal, and don’t worry; you don’t have to entertain no one this time. I’m trying to not keep patients in this clinic for a while.”Doing your normal job is not as taxing as trying to clean one of the messed up rooms, who knows what the side effects of working too much could be? But you will get extra pay if you do it and you have a small debt to pay… But, this place is 100 times spookier with the flames roaming around freely… You don’t know what could happen. You do have Philonune by your side.>Do your normal job. Normal pay (30 Gor$) >Deal with the final creepy room for extra cash. (70 Gor$)>Don’t do it. It’s too scary.>Write In.

>>1856964>Do the final room for the extra dosh.
Time to throw yourself in the lion’s den and deal with the final creepy room. You tell Mr. Calamity your intentions; he smiles and gives you a vacuum for it. It seems this is going to be harder than the last one.Inside the room, the flames start to congregate around you… You try to speak with them, they respond…“SHUT UP! WE DON’T NEED TO HEAR YOU!”“FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU!”“DIE, DIE, DIE, DIE.”“JOIN US, JOIN US.”“I FAILED, FAILED, FAILED.”“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH”The dancing spirits yell, cry, scream and whisper. The deep dark thoughts of sadness of beings that will never find peace, the ones whose voices were silenced, the ones who have lost hope are being send directly at you. This is way too fucking spooky, even Philonune seems scared.“I-I’m not scared. Our feelings are combined; it’s your fault!”“That’s bullshit! You never talked about combining our feelings or any of that shit!”“Why I wasn’t “the one who dark didn’t bother him” or something…”“Yeah, that would have been useful! Your power sucks Philo!”The flames pass through terrain, to your vacuum, and everything you need to clean up only to bother you. They all combine and create a dark energy to scare you, your courage is too low to deal with this. One of the flames stops right in of this mass of a flame.“Stop you fools! Let the kid be. You’re all worthless!” You remember this voice. The flames separate and dance around like before, they keep insulting and threating you, but it isn’t as bad as before.“Who are you? You sound familiar.” You ask.“Heh, you remember a loser like me? It’s me Nermento-o. You talked with me when Constance was still here.” Indeed you did. He was the chilliest one of the two.“…Uhm… Can I ask you why are we able to talk like this? I thought I had to put you on my eyes or something to communicate.”“I’m going to take a wild guess and imagine it’s because we now form part of this world and you have a real good perception of the unnatural.”“That doesn’t sound right.” Philonune questions the validity of his claim.“You don’t know, but most of these flames aren’t from our world, demon.” He replies back… Wait, there are just spooky ghosts? “Anyway, I supposed this is good enough to let you do your job.”After Nermento-o’s intervention, it was easier for you to clean up the place. You finally did it, and you are beyond tired. Mr. Calamity is very happy with your deed and you get paid 70 Gor$ for your effort. You went back to your apartment and went directly into your bed. You were exhausted.It’s a beautiful Thursday morning!... Wait no, it’s not! Fuck, you overslept! You’re late too school, it’s 12pm. You were too tired to hear the alarm! What do you do?

(Forgot to add that you gain some Courage from working at Calamity’s! You didn’t level up though. Just to update, the closest thing to level up is Handsomeness, but Athletics and Courage aren’t far off either. Knowledge is not even close to level up.)Too late for classes, better not bother and skip them altogether. You send a text message to Uccelli about what happened. You hope she makes up a good excuse or something to help you out. Sadly, she doesn’t answer immediately, most likely she’s busy teaching.You decided to clean up the place, to prepare it for operations! You move stuff around the house since you don’t have to care about bothering your father anymore. Almost looks like a decent place albeit small.That didn’t take long; you still have the whole day for yourself, its 12:30 pm. Remember your dad’s friend and new guardian is coming to visit later today. Also, Constance wakes up in 2 more days.

If you are fighting in an interdimensional demon battle royal you need to learn how to fend for yourself. You search in the web for a good battle dojo or gym where they can train you in martial arts. From all the affordable places that weren’t scams you could find there is one near you, it costs 10 Gor$ per class. You can pay a monthly fee of 40 if you want and you’ll have access to it every day if you want. Classes start at 5:30 pm every day except weekends. You’ll decide there what martial art you want to learn.Will you do it?>Yeah. You will also invite Amelia to train with you; even though she probably is too fragile for something like that.>Yeah.

>>1858614I'm almost sure she has a place to live already, and that would complicate things with our legal guardian, probablyAlso not sure how martial arts would help a teacher, or whether said teacher will be a good training partner but whatever, not gonna go against public opinion

Learning how to fight is important! And also a fun side activity with Uccelli wouldn’t be a bad idea. You text her your idea. While waiting for her answer you prepare your lunch. Finally she responds.“What happened to you? Are you alright? How do you always get yourself on trouble?” Oh, she read what you text before.“It’s all bad luck. I’ll tell you about it later. Now, what do you think? Want to get into martial arts with me?”“Don’t change subjects. Explain what happened.”“K.” You write more or less what happened at Calamity’s clinic.“Ghosts? I don’t like ghosts...”“Now, about martial art classes…”“I don’t have the money or the time. If it was on weekends it would have been a fun activity. Sorry, Ando.”“I see…”“Don’t be sad. I’ll search for something for us to do! I like the park and all but there must be something more riveting for us to do together.”“I’ll try to find something too.”“Again, sorry.”What a letdown. You need to talk with whoever you want to go with you in person, maybe they will feel obligated that way. Anyway, you think who the real options truly are, people who have free time and are willing to do this type of training. All it comes to mind is Amelia, Terrance and Scarlet. And none of them excite you as future partners… You’ll have to give it a shot by yourself later.

(Sorry, I cast the votes earlier.)You decided to exercise, mainly to wait for your guardian to arrive. With Philonune’s assistance, you made progress in the fitness scope, your athletic ability has risen, but enough to level up yet, but you feel next time is going to.You hear someone knocking the door, it must be Rufus, what a lame name. You open the door and there he is and Craig is with him. He looks like your average car salesman. You don’t know if he’s one, though.“Hello” You say to both men.“Hey, kid, It’s your good pal Craig and this is Rufus Hogg, he’s going to be your guardian for the time being. This Johnny Ando, Stan’s son.”“Hello, Johnny very nice to meet you.” He extends his hand to you, you two do a handshake.“Nice to meet you too.” You reply.“I’m tellin’ ya, this kid is nothing like this father.”“I hope you say that for the better. Stan was a close friend of mine.”“What else could I meant? The kid is super chill. Right, kid?”“I suppose.” You shrug. “C’mon in.”The two men get inside; they look how the place is all cleaned up somewhat pleased.“I see, this kid is really responsible. This place is cleaned up.” Rufus mentions.“Top lad, I say. He’s like, super quiet too! I didn’t even know he lived here for years! Crazy, right?”“I agree, but for other reasons.” Rufus laughs.“What brings you two here exactly?” You wonder.“I was going to make sure what type of kid I’m dealing with, you’re going to be my responsibility after all. But Craig has been telling me how much of a nice young man you’re, I can help but feel that you’re going to be good on your own, but I needed to see you with my own two eyes. I’ll ask regardless, do you really want to live here alone?”“Yes, sir.”“Good. If you ever feel like solitude is getting to you, you’re always welcome to live in my house. That reminds me; let’s change information, so I can contact you when necessary.” He takes his phone out, you change numbers and he texts you his address. “While you have given me a great first impression, you’re going to have a week trial period anyway.”“What?”“Don’t worry, Craig here is going to tell me how have you been behaving and I’ll consider if you can live alone or not. If you do anything stupid, well, you know… I’ll have to do more than just making you live with me. That’s it, I’ll send you money every Sunday through Craig, so you can buy your food and get by the city.”“I won’t take any, I promise.” Craigs laughs.“I can’t promise you a certain amount, so spend what I gave you wisely. If you ever feel you don’t have enough money, you can always ask Craig for lunch or dinner.”“I’m not a particularly great cook, but I get the job done.” Craig says.“Any questions?”>”No. I’m good.”>”I’ll call you if I have one.”>Write In.
>>1858890>>”I’ll call you if I have one.”
>>1858890>"What's the deal with you and dad? Why'd you agree to be my guardian?"
“Just one, what’s the deal with you and dad? Why’d you agree to be my guardian?”“To give the favor back to my good pal from college, of course. He did so much for me and my family now I finally got the chance to pay him back. And also it’s my turn to give something back to this newer generation.”“What did he do?”“Let me say it’s not easy to escape a country without help. And if you have, better be good and your father was.” He gives a sad smile. ”You don’t know how bad this country was before when Gordon Sr. was still in power. This is a quick visit, so I won’t go into details, but if you ever want to talk, you know where I live. I’m not a phone guy personally.”“I see…”“Any other question before we wrap up?”“I’ll call you if I have one.”“Then it was a pleasure Johnny.” You two have a handshake before he leaves. Craig stays for a second here and says:“You don’t know, but he’s kind of a big deal, kid. A big shot. Well, see ya, need to accompany this old man to his car.”That felt quick, but it was a long conversation. You thought it was funny how both of them talked about how good of a kid you’re when you forgot to go to school today. You’re past the time for your dojo’s classes. In fact, the sun is about to set. You’ll have to find something to do.>Go to the clinic to work.>Buy a cheap but useful phone in one of the antique shops around here.>Invite Amelia to walk around the neighborhood.>Shitpost in the internet.>Write In.

Your future martial art classes aren’t going to pay themselves, you decided to go to the clinic to work once again. A cheerful Calamity welcomes you to work! Now that both rooms are crystal clear, there is only regular work for you to do. The flames are still lingering around, but they seem uninterested in you. That was by far, the most forgettable visit you ever had inside the clinic, way better than being in danger. You earn 30 Gor$! You have a grand total of 100! Remember you still need to pay your debt. After doing a good work and double checking your phone’s alarm, you decided it’s time to doze off. You find yourself in the bridge between worlds or something like that, the room looks like an actual tangible place; you’re sitting in a gallery, around you there are people who look like shadows to you, not many of them to be honest, their voices sound distorted like the entities sounded before the pacts. Everyone seems as confused as you; they are moving their heads around and are whispering to each other. In the crowd you spot Amelia, she looks normal to you for some reason... And she’s wearing her dumb pajamas. You try to leave your sit but you’re unable to, there seems to be a weird barrier that doesn’t let you go out of a small perimeter. You keep looking around and spot Uccelli and Osgood, they are far apart from each other and nowhere near close to you. She’s wearing a large shirt and Osgood is... Uhm… You think Scarlet would have paid a fortune to be here… And no, he’s not naked.Lights turn on from a stage that just appeared in front of you, the light doesn’t affect you but some people seem to be bothered by it.“Ladies and gentlemen, the 1st Registration period is finally over! No other entity is allowed to participate until further notice! Which means today we officially begin the games for the throne of god!” A stage appears in front of you, there is a big screen in front of you, and it’s like you’re in some type of Movie Theater. Besides it there are 5 entities with their partners; like everyone else the humans are just shadows except one… Constance.You hear panicking from the crowd; the voices are mainly asking what’s going on. “Your questions will be clarified if you let me speak! Please, entities make your partners behave.” After the commotion calms down, the voice resumes talking. “Today is the first day of the war! I hope all members know the rules…” The voice explains the same rules as before, the solstice and equinox stuff, the red sky, and others. For some odd reason he calls the place of confrontation the red valley. He also talks about the judges, who they present themselves. He says anyone who kills one of the referees will be automatically eliminated from the competition.
>>1859235“… in your electronics devices there will be a new application where all the information needed will be displayed, including a countdown for the first equinox. I like to remind the participants it doesn’t work like your regular equinox and solstices. The countdown is the only valid method to know how much time is left. Any questions?”>Raise your hand. “What the fuck is happening?”>Raise your hand. “Is there a non-violent way to decide a confrontation? I don’t want to kill everyone here.”>Raise your hand. “What’s the red valley?”>Stay put. Probably all the questions you have are answered in the app.
>>1859239>>Stay put. Probably all the questions you have are answered in the app.
>>1859239>Raise your hand."Yes, who are you, and what do you do in this contest?"
>>1859239>Raise your hand. "What are YOU getting out of this war, using us as proxies?"
>>1859262>>1859263These are better than mineGo with these.
>Raise your hand. “Is there a non-violent way to decide a confrontation? I don’t want to kill everyone here.”
Just to be Clear "I don't want to kill everybody here" is talking about our teammates since there can only be one winner
(Most of the characters in the pic are placeholders)You raise your hand. “Yes? You” A spotlight appears on you. Everyone turns around to look at you. You stand up for some reason. You’ve enough courage you don’t feel too uncomfortable.“Yes, who are you, and what do you do in this contest?”“I’m the collective consciousness of all judges.”“…”“…What?” A random guy yells after 5 seconds of silence.“Ehm, another question. What are YOU Getting out of this war, using us as proxies?”“Mainly to not obliterate our world in the process of us deciding our new leader. And human energy is a delicacy.”“Can you elaborate on that?”“I prefer keeping the questions about our war. Who’s next?”Amelia raises her hand.“Uhm… Is there a non-violent way to decide a confrontation? I don’t want to kill anyone.”Half of the crowd starts laughing. Poor Amelia she looks extremely embarrassed, she’s in the verge of tears.“Sadly, there is none at least for the crystal collecting game. Now for the aftermath, that’s a completely different game and set of rules. You’ve to reach that stage to know the rules. I hope you get there.”“I see…” She sits.“Any other question?”Someone raises his hand.“One question, if I take all the crytals for myself, I win?”“Yes, of course.”“Thanks.” He sits.“Any other question?”Someone else raises his hand.“I’m not going to make a question. I just want to tell everybody I found the whole crystal forThe first equinox. So I wouldn’t bother searching for it if I were you…”“That’s not a que—““You know I have god on my side? You think your puny threats will stop us?” A cocky shadow says.“Foolish fools, you don’t get how far behind are you from me and my friends? This war is mine.” Another shadow says.“How many people I have to hear rambling everyday about winning this or winning that? I control this country. I decide who wins. You think you can defeat me?” More and more people start doing cocky remarks one after the other, even Amelia did one. Uccelli, Osgood, You and other 3 shadows didn’t even bother.“I’ll take it as there aren’t any more questions. Good bye players.”You wake up… You see your phone; a new app is in there. You think everything is going to get crazier from now on… Sadly, this is all we have for this week. See you next time and thanks fro playing.
