Hello, good people of /qst/. This quest is, as is probably obvious from the OP pic, based on the Teen Titans animated series. You'll be taking the part of a young man and potential Titan, guiding him through his trials and tribulations.>RulesThere will be a 15 minute voting period between posts.Please only choose one option (I will let you know in cases where you can choose more)An option with two arrows (>>) beside it is one that can be combined with other optionsWrite-ins of dialogue are allowed, but they won't be put in as-written, just sort of the spirit of the write-in. Additionally, dialogue write-ins require a significant amount of support from other players to be put in, as they can greatly affect the character. Action write-ins will only be allowed under certain circumstances, which I'll announce. You can suggest an action to me if you want, and I may allow it, but might not depending on various factors.No dice system in this quest. Victory and defeat will come down to decisions rather than random luck. Learn from experiences, develop strategies, and think outside the box at times (like I said, an action can be suggested to me).Above all, have fun. I want this to be an enjoyable experience for everyone. Through success, failure, and everything in-between, I hope this will be an adventure worth remembering.Last thread is kept here >http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=TT+Quest>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Master+of+GamesTwitter: https://twitter.com/INSTIGATORQST
>>2212377time for COCAINE
The looks the other Titans are giving you are just priceless. Cyborg seems to recover the fastest, smiling a bit, though whether that's because you managed to successfully control your new power, or because he was right about what that power was, you can't say. Robin, Beast Boy, and Starfire, on the other hand, look pretty much stunned. You assume it's not because of your new outfit, but who knows? Maybe you just look really good in it. You stand there, letting your question hang in the air while you wait for the other Titans to gather their thoughts and say something."It suits you marvelously," Starfire tells you with a smile. "Yeah, it's a good look for you," Robin agrees. "Glad to see that Cyborg and I did a good job.""I'm not too crazy about the mask," Beast Boy admits, rubbing his chin. "But the rest of it looks good. More importantly, did you just teleport?""Yes," you answer."Called it!" Cyborg declares, pumping his fist. "Well, that should come in handy," Robin tells you. "And it'll make you a lot tougher to fight if you get good with it."Teleportation in combat could be very useful, this is true, but at the moment, with it tiring you considerably each time you teleport, it may be best not to overly rely on it in dangerous situations just yet. When you learn to use it more efficiently, however, you agree that it will be very useful.Before the conversation can progress any further, red lights begin to flash, and an alarm blares, signalling to everybody in the tower that there's trouble, and the Titans are needed. Everyone leaps up and runs for the garage, including yourself. Raven meets the group down there, using her magic to reach the destination. Robin and Starfire hop on the R-Cycle, Cyborg hops into the driver seat of the T-Car, Beast Boy calls shotgun, and you sit in the back next to Raven.The vehicles speed out and away from the tower, moving swiftly through the city toward the source of trouble. You notice that nobody said what exactly is going on, but you assume that at least Robin and Cyborg know where to go, even if they don't know the enemy.>>A. "Where are we going?">>B. "Do you know who or what we're dealing with?">>C. "Hey, Raven, what do you think of my suit?">D. Don't say anything for the rest of the ride>/>>E. Write-in

>>2212429>>A. "Where are we going?">>B. "Do you know who or what we're dealing with?"ya know I am sad since I forgot about Plastic man, when I was voting in the strawpoll
>>2212459>>2212443"Where are we going?" you ask Cyborg as the T-Car speeds through the city.Cyborg looks at you through the rear-view mirror. "Jump City's First National Bank. There's apparently been a break-in.""Do you know who or what we're dealing with?" you ask.Cyborg turns his full-focus back to the road. "All we know is that people called whoever this is a "monster", which doesn't narrow things down a whole lot considering the kinds of people we fight. Could be someone like Mumbo, dude can create all sorts of illusions that might make people think he's a monster.""I don't think that's it," Beast Boy comments. "Sure, Mumbo's ugly, but I don't think anyone would mistake him for a monster.""Well, it could be Cinderblock, or Plasmus, or Overload," Cyborg rattles off names that hold no meaning to you. "Heck, it could even be Control Freak sending movie monsters at the bank."So, none of them know, they can only guess. Alright. They don't seem all that worried, in any case, which you figure you should take some comfort in. You remain quiet for the rest of the ride, which isn't very much longer, until you pull up at the bank, which has a nice new hole in its front entrance. There isn't too much of a crowd, so you figure that most of the people that were around when this started took off.Everyone gets off and out of their vehicles, approaching the entrance in a group. A desk is hurled from inside the bank, but Starfire shoots it down with her eye-beams before it can hit anybody. The sound of the desk exploding is quickly followed by a growl, and a massive creature steps into the sunlight.You aren't really sure what it is, but it's big, and looks like it's made of some kind of stone. In its left arm, it has what looks to be a multitude of gold bars, while its right is empty and clenched into a fist. It looks at you and the other Titans with red, inhuman eyes, dropping its ill-gotten gains and roaring in challenge, charging right toward your team."Titans, go!" Robin shouts.>A. Throw Psychic Punches at it as it charges>B. Try to Psychically push its legs out from under it>C. Hang back and take a support role for now, provide barriers where needed>D. Don't do anything yet. See what the other Titans are up to, then decide how you can help>E. Try teleporting someone to attack it from behind (specify)
>>2212545>>B. Try to Psychically push its legs out from under it
>>2212545>B. Try to Psychically push its legs out from under itLaw of mass dictates that the mass of an object dramatically increases the force of impact when said object collides with the ground.
>>2212587The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
>>2212558>>2212560This thing's charging straight at you guys. It would be a shame if it just so happened to lose its balance. Most of the others scatter, but you stand your ground, psychically pushing against its legs in an effort to trip it up. As you strain and strain with no visible results, you realize that this strategy will not work for you. Of course, by the time that epiphany comes to you, the creature is standing right over you and throwing a punch. You don't know if one of your barriers will stop that.Luckily, you don't have to find out, as Cyborg gets in front of you, and catches the monster's fist with both of his hands. He attempts to push it back, and the monster raises its other hand to strike. Before it gets the chance, a green elephant charges right into its side, pushing it away from you and Cyborg.Exploding disks and starbolts hit the monster right after, keeping it stunned for a few seconds before it angrily picks up a car parked on the side of the street and hurls it toward Starfire. A black light surrounds the car, and gently sets it back on the ground. Starfire then swoops in and punches the creature in the face, causing it to stumble back just a bit before punching her in the stomach, then smashing her over the head. Starfire is sent flying past Robin and hits the ground hard. Robin turns to see if she's alright, and the creature begins charging for him.>>A. "Robin, look out!">B. Get over to Robin and protect him with a barrier>C. Get to Robin and try to teleport him to safety>D. Throw Psychic Punches at the monster to try and distract it>/>>E. Write-in

>>2212608"Robin, look out!" you shout to your leader while focusing on the monster and throwing Psychic Punches at the side of its head. The creature looks your way, and slows its charge just a bit. It seems confused as to what happened, but seems to understand that you were responsible, and so stops running at Robin, and comes charging right for you. Cyborg fires with his sonic cannon, which slows the creature down, then rushes in to attack. The monster backhands Cyborg out of the way, and resumes its movement toward you, only for something massive to fall from the sky and land on top of it.Beast Boy, in the form of a Tyrannosaurus, slams the monster into the ground by landing on it, letting out a roar of triumph. He steps back, looking down at his fallen foe, but somehow the monster is able to push itself back up. It roars as Beast Boy and charges, but the green-skinned hero takes the form of a hawk and flies out of the monster's reach. A black glow surrounds the monster's ankles, and it's pulled off its feet, falling onto its back. Robin leaps onto its chest, and slams his staff into its face repeatedly. The creature punches up at Robin, who backflips out of the way and leaps off of its prone form. As it picks itself back up, two green beams of light slam into its side. Somehow, it manages to keep standing, but it doesn't look very happy. >A. Hit it with Psychic Punches to get its attention, then teleport to a new spot when it charges at you, and do it again. Keep it distracted so the others can find a way to take it down.>B. Provide support; put barriers up in front of teammates when they fall under attack>C. You have a crazy idea. Ask Raven to pull it onto its back again, then grab it, and try teleporting with it as high into the air as you can, and let it drop. >D. Stand back; you don't know what to do at this point>/>>E. Something else

>>2212695>>2212707>>2212710What can you do here? Your Psychic Attacks seem to be little more than annoying distractions for this monster. Even the members of the team with super strength aren't doing much to whatever this thing is, and are even getting ragdolled by it. You could try something crazy with your teleportation, but you aren't even entirely sure if your powers work in such a way that you could do what you were thinking of. So, you decide to play it safe. What have you been working on lately? Your barriers. Considering how tough this thing is, you aren't sure how much good they'll do, but you have to do something to help. Starfire flies higher into the air to avoid the monster as it charges, raining starbolts down on it from a safe distance. As it looks around for something to throw at the alien girl, Cyborg charges at it and leaps up, bringing his fist to the back of the creature's stone skull. The monster drops to one knee, holding its head and groaning in pain. Cyborg's fist morphs into a sonic cannon, and he fires a blast into the monster's back. Even with all of that, the creature manages to get back up, looking furiously at Cyborg and smashing him into the ground.As the creature raises its fists again, you rush in to stand over your friend, creating as strong a barrier as you can manage in such a short amount of time. The creature swings its fists, which slam into your barrier. Your knees buckle, and pain flares through your head, but you manage to keep yourself standing, and the barrier up.Even so, as the creature raises its fists yet again, you wonder if you'll be able to keep it up through another hit. Starfire swoops in, tackling the monster onto its side and pushing it down the street. You see a flash of green light, and the monster cries out. A moment later,Starfire yelps, and is thrown into the air again, but caught by Beast Boy in the form of a Pteranadon, who gently takes her to the ground.The creature gets back to its feet, growls, takes a step forward, and then collapses face-first into the street.>>A. "Alright, Starfire!">>B. "So, do the police have a way to lock this thing up?">C. Get in the T-Car and get wait to go home>D. Tell everyone that you're going for a walk>E. Try teleporting all the way home>/>>F. Something else

>>2212778>>>A. "Alright, Starfire!">D. Tell everyone that you're going for a walk
>>2212793>>2212795>>2212816/ttquest/: 'We think Starfire is keen.'
>>2212793>>2212801>>2212795"Alright, Starfire!" you cheer as the girl picks herself back up."Oh yeah!" Cyborg shouts. "Nice, Star, very nice."Robin walks over to Starfire, and the two share a smile. "Save it for the tower, you two," Cyborg tells the couple, causing Robin to go slightly red in the face and Starfire to smile blissfully."So," you say, changing the subject. "Do the police have a way to lock this thing up?""Yeah, they've locked up worse than Cinderblock," Beast Boy assures you. "They'll be here any minute.""Why was Cinderblock trying to rob a bank?" Raven asks."For money, duh," Beast Boy answers, earning an eye roll."Rae's got a point," Cyborg comments, coming to join the three of you. "I mean, what's the dude gonna buy?""Cement?" Beast Boy suggests.>>A. "Who cares? At least we stopped him?">>B. "Maybe he was stealing just to steal,">C. Go wait in the car to go home>D. Tell everyone that you're going for a walk>E. Ask if anybody wants to get pizza>/>>F. Something else
>>2212901>E.Do we have a stipend yet? Since there was a week time skip. If so:>F. Ask if anyone wants to hit a music/record store with you after Pizza. You're interested in exploring that side of you.
>>2212901>E. Ask if anybody wants to get pizza>>F. Maybe someone told him to rob the bank
>>2212901>A. "Who cares? At least we stopped him?"
>>2212907Yes you do
>>2212901>>B. "Maybe we can ask after he's in a proper cell">D. Tell everyone that you're going for a walk
>>2212966ignore the B meant to put F
>>2212909>>2212907"Anybody want to get pizza?" you ask."Mmm...no thanks," Raven says, shaking her head. "I'll see you all back at the Tower."Raven disappears, but both Cyborg and Beast look happy with your suggestion, and when Robin and Starfire come over, you ask if they would like to get pizza."That sounds good to me," Robin tells you, and Starfire expresses similar sentiments. So, you're all soon gathered in an outdoor, second-story area of a local pizza place, which the Titans describe as "the best in the city". Everyone takes a seat, places their orders, and then takes a moment to relax after the battle that was just fought."Yo, Crimson, thanks for the help back there," Cyborg says to you.>>A. "Thanks for helping me out back there.">>B. "Anybody want to go to the music store after this?">>C. "How come Raven didn't want to come?">/>>D. Write-in
>>2213031>>>A. "Thanks for helping me out back there.">>>B. "Anybody want to go to the music store after this?"
>>2213031>D. "We are a team that's what teammates do. We watch each others back.">B
>>2213031>A. "Thanks for helping me out back there.">B. "Anybody want to go to the music store after this?"
>>2213111>>2213037"Thanks for helping me out back there," you say to him in turn."No problem, man," he says, taking a sip of his soda. "Cinderblock was really on his game today, wasn't he?""Tell me about it," Beast Boy agrees. "I dropped a T-Rex on him, and he still got back up and kept at it. Robin and Crimson couldn't even hurt him, even you and Starfire were having trouble.""But why?" Robin asks. "Why fight so much harder now than he usually does? It doesn't make any sense. It's not like his haul was much larger than normal, and he obviously wasn't acting as a decoy to split us up.""Someone could have hired him to rob the bank," Cyborg says with a shrug."Could it be Slade?" Starfire questions, not sounding like she really wants to know the answer."If it is, and he's planning something, we'll find out what and stop it," Robin promises, seeming more serious than you've ever really seen him. "Rose hasn't said anything about him showing up, has she?" Beast Boy asks.Robin shakes his head. "No, but it seems like she was never really in the loop for his plans anyway."The pizza soon arrives, the the topics turn lighter, with everyone just talking like friends enjoying lunch rather than super heroes that just stopped a bank robbery and are questioning the motives. You kind of wish Raven was there with you guys, but it's still a very nice time even with a teammate missing."Anybody want to go to the music store after this?" you ask out of the blue."Sorry, I have to do some work on the T-Car," Cyborg tells you. "I can give you a lift there, though.""I'm gonna have to opt out, too," Robin says. "I've got some reports to put together when we're done here."Wait, reports to who?"I'm in," Beast Boy tells you. "I've been meaning to see if they've got the Clash of the Planets soundtrack back in stock.""I too will join you," Starfire offers. Cyborg drops the three of you off in front of the store, telling you that he'll see you later before driving away.One by one, the three of you step inside, finding yourselves standing before a sea of records, CDs, radios, handheld devices, and more. Beast Boy rushes right to a spot about three-quarters of the way across the store, probably looking for that CD he mentioned. Starfire just stands there, seeming almost awestruck.>>A. "Never been here before?">B. Have a look around, just browse and see what you find>C. Look for a specific genre/artist (specify)>D. Follow Beast Boy and see what he finds>E. Follow Starfire and see what she finds>/>>F. Write-in
>>2213155>>A.>C. Without knowing why, find yourself drawn to the Prog Rock section, and finally realize your superhero name is a pun you unknowingly made.
>>2213155>>A. "Never been here before>C. Look for a specific genre/artist (Sublime, Jimi Hendrix and rock n roll)
>>2213155>>A. "Never been here before?">E. Follow Starfire and see what she finds
If we go investigate a genre, Starfire can tag along, right?
>>2213164>>2213180>>2213178"Never been here before?" you ask your friend."Only once," she confesses, coming out of her wondrous state of mind. "It still astounds me how many different kinds of music Earth has to offer, and how often new songs and forms are created."That makes sense. Starfire's not from Earth, so she takes a lot more interest in a lot of what most humans take for granted. But, there's more to it than that. She finds these sorts of things wonderful, not simply interesting. She's the same way with many people, come to think of it. Her genuine, innocent curiosity and wonder is actually very endearing, and you count yourself lucky to have her as a friend.While Starfire goes to look through the music, seeming to wander pretty much aimlessly, you find yourself inexplicably drawn to a certain section of the store. Progressive Rock, for reasons you can't really figure out, you feel like this is the area you should be searching for music. One particular group catches your attention rather quickly.King Crimson.For some reason, this seems really familiar to you, and you can't help but wonder if your decision to call yourself "Kid Crimson" was somehow inspired by this. You take the CD to a listening station nearby, put on some headphones, and let it play>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHJ7An2CMB4Again, this sense of familiarity is impossible to shake, and you can almost remember sitting and listening to it with your....you can't remember. But, you're pretty confident that this band is one you listened to pretty often.Starfire eventually wanders over to you, a curious expression on her face. You guess that you may be looking or acting a bit strange right now, but she doesn't mention that.Instead, she asks. "May I listen?"You remove your headphones and hand them to her. She places them on her head and listens. She seems at first uncertain what to make of it, but gradually seems to be enjoying it more and more, closing her eyes and nodding along to it by the end. She removes the headphones, and looks at the CD the two of you had just listened to."King Crimson," she reads aloud, then looking at you quizzically. "Did you name yourself after them?">>A. "I think I might have without knowing. They seem familiar.">>B. "What do you think of them?">>C. Buy this CD>>D. Buy a radio for your room>/>>E. Write-in
>>2213246>A.>>C.>>E. Buy several of their CDs, as well as something to play them on if we don't have anything.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhKJgqxNDD8

>Again, this sense of familiarity is impossible to shake, and you can almost remember sitting and listening to it with your....>and listening to it with your....Well when are we getting Brother Blood Elite goon squad we used to be part of comming after us?
>>2213329Dad. Blood is our dad and is actually a chill dude when he takes his meds. Kind of a megalomaniac otherwise.[montage of Peter and Blood playing catch in the park with psychic powers, going to a ball game, listening to prog rock at home, etc...]
>>2213343I'm theorizing that the woman in the flashback is our older sister.
>>2213351I was thinking HIVE Queen/Queen Bee, but it does beg the question why she'd be taking orders from Blood. Though I suppose its not out of the question.
>>2213250>>2213263"I think I might have without knowing," you admit. "They seem familiar.""Do you plan to purchase this?" Starfire asks, handing the CD back to you."Yeah, I think so," you tell her.So, you do end up deciding to buy the CD, as well as a radio for your room. Starfire buys several CDs of different genres, and Beast Boy comes up with some kind of boxed collection of Clash of the Planets CDs. The three of you go up to the register, pay for your purchases, and then exit together. Each of you are given a monthly stipend as members of the team. There's a budget for food, equipment, maintenance, and pretty much any purchases meant for the entire team. With that taken care of, you can pretty much use your stipend for whatever you want. It's not a crazy amount of money, but enough where you can afford to treat yourselves when you find something you want.You're feeling pretty happy as the three of you walk down the sidewalk, but then, as you pass an alleyway, you hear a sound that makes you pause. Beast Boy and Starfire hear it, too, and the three of you look down the alleyway. You can make out some kind of beeping, and see a small, flashing light on the ground."Does that sound like one of our communicators?" Beast Boy questions."It does," Starfire confirms, sounding uneasy.>A. Go and investigate>B. Back away slowly and suggest an alternate route home>C. Call up the others and make sure they have their communicators>D. Ignore it, keep going>/>>E. Write-in
>>2213343Would rather have our brother in arms as we try to convert Blood elite goons. Or as they try to beat us to prove their loyalty to blood
>>2213366>>E. Cover it in a barrier first.>C.
>>2213366>C. Call up the others and make sure they have their communicatorsIf won't take long to check, and if we find out they all have their communicators then we know it's not one of our friends down that alley.
>>2213371One or the other>>2213372You don't know how to create barriers at a distance
>>2213370Not as funny though.
>>2213366>>C. Call up the others and make sure they have their communicators
>>2213383>>2213382>>2213381>>2213380>>2213374>>2213372Being cautious, are we?Well, nothing wrong with that
>>2213450Hey, Pete's competitive, not dumb.Also, Starfire and BB are there if you need a patsy to rush in.
>>2213374This seems fishy to you, and while you briefly consider investigating, you quickly decide against that, instead pulling out your communicator, and calling up the other Titans, asking if anyone's lost their communicator. Robin, Raven, and Cyborg all confirm that they still have theirs."Are any of the honorary Titans supposed to be in town?" Starfire asks over your shoulder."No," Robin answers."Could it be Terra's?" Beast Boy suggests."I doubt she would still have it, Beast Boy," Raven tells him. "You said yourself that she wants to forget that part of her life."Beast Boy sighs. "Yeah, you're right.""It's probably a trap," Robin warns. "Get out of there as quickly as possible. We're on our way."The call ends, and the beeping stops shortly after. The three of you quickly move away from the alleyway, and soon spot the T-Car rolling up, and the R-Cycle not far behind. With the team all assembled, you return to the alleyway, but find no signs of anybody or anything being there.Robin kneels and searches the area you saw the light coming from, finding nothing and shaking his head as he stands up. "Whatever was here, it's gone now," Robin tells you. "Come on, we should all head back to the Tower, just to be safe.">A. "Alright">B. "You guys go ahead, I think I'll walk back">C. Try teleporting back>D. "I think I'm going to the park, see you guys later.">E. Something else
>>2213478>E. Tell the others to go ahead, then teleport to the rooftops and get a look around
>>2213478>A>E. "Who is Terra?"
>>2213539Oh shit, I like this.Changing mine.
>>2213542>>2213539>>2213500Since this came in late, do you guys want to include the question"Who is Terra?"
>>2213547Yes (but I already said as much.)
>>2213478yeah i'll support the question
>>2213547Sure, I'll support
>>2213547I would like to gives us a little bit about the titans back story with new members.
>>2213559"Alright," you agree.Everyone begins to head for their vehicles, but you hang back just a bit, grabbing Beast Boy's shoulder and having him wait for a moment so you can ask him a simple question."Who is Terra?"Beast Boy's eyes speak volumes on their own; the sadness and regret you can see in them making you want to give the guy a hug. You're actually about to apologize for upsetting him when he answers your question."Terra was...is...well, it's a long story," Beast Boy tells you. "When we met Terra, she was a girl on the run, travelling the world, fighting monsters and criminals, but never staying in one place for long. We all liked her, me especially, and we talked about offering her a place on the team. But Terra had a secret. I found out by accident that she couldn't control her powers. She didn't want anyone else on the team to know, and made me promise that I wouldn't tell anybody."He sighs wistfully. "Well, Robin found out on his own, but Terra thought I'd told him. She ran away, and ran into a man called Slade. He offered her a deal; he'd teach her to control her powers if she helped him destroy us. She came back with her powers under control, and we took her as a member of the team. She helped us fight crooks, spent time with us, made us all believe she was our friend. I guess she was, in a way. When it was time for her to betray us, she almost ran away and took me with her. But then, when I found out her secret, I said something stupid, and she left again with Slade.""Hey, are you guys coming or what?" Cyborg shouts from the T-Car.>A. "You can tell me the rest later.">B. "Mind telling me the rest on the way home?">>C. "Be there in a minute.">D. "Keep going, Beast Boy."
>>2213651>>A. "You can tell me the rest later."
>>2213651>A.Also, if not a hug, give him like, a hand on the shoulder. He opened up to us and we appreciate that.
>>2213651>B. "Mind telling me the rest on the way home?"
>>2213667I'll allow that if others are in favor
To confirm, MoG. A is not dismissive or anything? Its more of a 'hey I do want to hear the rest, but this is clearly difficult, we don't have to do it right now' sort of thing, right?
>>2213667>A.Hand on the shoulder seems fine
>>2213680Yeah, that's fine
>But then, when I found out her secret, I said something stupid, and she left again with Slade."So it was Slade. He must have seen the new kid with the Titans and now is trying to dig some intel on us.
>>2213722Could be, Cinderblock has worked for him before
>>2213722inb4 Brother Blood is pulling a Terra on the Titans with Peter to show up Slade.'See, with Peter, he doesn't even KNOW he's going to betray the Titans.'
>>2213667>>2213690"You can tell me the rest later," you say to your friend, placing a gentle hand on his shoulder. He's opened up to you, you appreciate that, and you want him to know that you appreciate his trust.Beast Boy manages a nod. "Yeah, good idea."The two of you head for the T-Car, taking seats in the back. Raven looks at the two of you in the rear view mirror, and you get the feeling she knows something's up, but she doesn't pry. You can't tell with Cyborg, but if he knows something, he doesn't say it.The ride home is quiet, and when the car's parked in the tower, Beast Boy heads right up to the living room, turns on the game system, and starts drowning himself in games. Robin looks like he's about to comment, but his communicator beeps, and he seems to forget about it altogether. "I've got to get to the training room," he says, rushing in that direction.Starfire has a knowing look on her face, but doesn't say anything.Raven goes to make herself some tea, and Cyborg sits down to join Beast Boy for video games.>>A.

>>2213864I'll add this to mine (A.)Type 2 or 3 meditation focusing on Court of the Crimson King could be interesting.
>>2213869>>2213864>>2213825>>2213834"What's Robin doing?" you ask Starfire as your leader disappears through the door."He has gone to train with a friend," Starfire explains. "A training partner that visits us on occasion."Deciding to let Robin have his fun for now, and not wanting to bother any of the others, you leave the living room and return to your own room, setting up your radio and putting in the CD. For whatever reason, you want to try meditation while listening to the CD. Maybe your familiarity with it will allow you to achieve a serene state of mind more easily, or better focus on certain things. Maybe, if you try digging into your memories again, listening to something from your past life will help you to remember more clearly.It's worth a try, you suppose. With Crimson King playing on the radio, you climb into bed, assume the lotus position, and decide which method of meditation to attempt.>A. Method 1: Attempt to empty your mind of thought and allow it to achieve a state of rest>B. Method 2: Focus on a particular thought, problem, question, or moment while banishing all other thoughts (specify what you want to focus on)>C.

>>2213898>C>captcha is crimson road
>>2213905>>2213913Method three might be your best bet, so as you settle in and repeat the mantra shared between you and two other Titans, you simply let the thoughts come, they slowly float in front of you, each one within reach for you to take and focus on. Different subjects, from hopes and fears to memories are all present, and the options provided to you seem limitless.Which one do you choose?>A. Your past. Who were you before the surgery gave you these powers?>B. The blonde woman you saw in your memory the last time you meditated. Who was she?>C. What was Blood's plan for you? How did he intend to have you change the world?>D. The accident. How were you injured that day?>E. Your friends.

>>2213963>>D. The accident. How were you injured that day?
>>2213963>E.Because I am sappy and I love it.
>>2213969Also, joy powers? Maybe we'll fly like Starfire.

>>2213963>>E. Your friends. Thinking of those that have made your new life happy can only be good for your mental state

>>2214059Changing to >EThen
>>2214070>>2214068Ah, I saw the >D response afterward. I didn't realize it was 'first response wins', which in retrospect, makes the most sense.
>>2214039>>2214005>>2213969You decide to focus on your friends, the people that have made your new life a happy one. Robin, a leader who's always been ready to help you, whether in finding out about yourself or improving as a fighter. He's helped you to grow, and been a good friend on top of it. Being leader hasn't kept him from being a fun guy. He took part in that ill-fated eating contest, joined in on video game brawls, and, of course, was involved in the initiation for new teammates.Raven. She's helped you more than just about anybody since you got here, whether it's been getting your powers back under control, helping you figure out how they work, helping you learn meditation, or just being someone to talk to at times. She may be the least social of the group, but that doesn't make her any less of a good friend.Cyborg. He's a man who's always ready to do something fun, cool, or crazy. The guy builds super cars, has super strength, can fire from a cannon in his arm, and out-eat anyone on the team. Plus, his burgers are delicious. He's also good to everyone, always does his best to support the team when he can. He's a good guy, and you're glad to know him.Starfire. You don't know that you've ever met a nicer person. It's hard not to smile when she's happy, and hard not to frown when she's sad. Her interest in everything and everyone around her, and the kindness she shows everyone she meets is just wonderful, and you're glad to know her.Beast Boy. He's kind of a goofball, and not the brightest of the bunch, but he's still a super nice guy who always tries to lighten the mood, is always up to do something fun, and always willing to bring others in on it. And, you really appreciate that he's been willing to open up to you. You see that as a sign of trust and friendship.These people, who until recently you hadn't even met before, have given you a home, have helped you better yourself, have taken you in as part of their team, have treated you as a true friend, and given your life true joy.You open your eyes, feeling wonderful, only to freak out as you realize you're not in your bed anymore. Your surge of fear causes you to put up a large forcefield that you think extends even beyond your room, and you fall back down to your bed, which shakes under the sudden impact.Were you floating?>A.

>>2214160>>2214131There's got to be a way to recreate what you just did. You were feeling joy when you finished your meditation, so if you bring back those memories...Slowly, you lift off the bed once again, hovering above it as you feel excitement rush through you. You're flying! Wow, this is-oww!You hit your head on the ceiling, drop back onto your bed, and groan. Okay, going to need to learn some control there. But still, you can fly! Or, at least float. That's pretty awesome, right? But what's not awesome is that your head's hurting, and seeming to get worse rather than better. In fact, it's not even an ache, it's stinging, really stringing, and your whole body's feeling weird, then it almost seizes up, and you fall from the bed, writhing on the floor, your head pains becoming worse and worse. You scream, and your radio is hurled across the room, the mirror on your dresser shatters, your bed rocks, and your alarm clock joins your radio. Another scream, and a massive barrier forms around you. You begin to lift off the ground again, striking the ceiling before dropping back to the floor and losing consciousness.When your eyes open, you're lying in the medical wing, hooked up to some machines you don't really recognize, and feeling absolutely horrible."Rise and shine, sleepy-head," the last voice you want to hear right now mocks. Brother Blood steps into view, a patronizing smile on his face. "You've been a busy boy, haven't you, Peter? Unlocking powers left and right, pushing yourself to your limits, I should have expected nothing less. A pity you lacked my guidance, I could have warned you of the dangers unlocking so many powers so quickly would present. But, some students just don't want to learn, so they can deal with the consequences of their ignorance.">A. "Go away, Blood!">B. "What happened to me?">C. "What do you want with me?">D. Ignore him, don't acknowledge his presence>E. Call for help>F. Try and hit Blood with a psychic attack>G. Try and create a barrier between yourself and Blood
>>2214193>C. "What do you want with me?"
>>2214193>D.Lets keep him talking. Only give something if we think it might get him to spill something important.
>>2214193>>D. Ignore him, don't acknowledge his presence
>>2214193>>B. "What happened to me?"
>>2214193>E. Call for help
>>2214193>D. Ignore him, don't acknowledge his presence
>>2214261Did we trigger The Suffering?
>>2214263I wouldn't go that far. That's not for a while yet.
>>2214261We should have just gone and met Bestgi- I mean Batgirl.
>>2214266Well then. I will stick by my guns and trust in your narrative integrity.You knew this was going to happen though. Raven told us to ignore him and we're quite scrupulous. Its why Blood is so upset at us going rogue.
>>2214282True, this is one of the few circumstances in which ignoring him is a bad idea>>2214278It wasn't her. In fact, in this continuity, her and Robin have never even met
>>2214286That's fine. I don't mind trap answers as long as they're sufficiently rare, make sense, and aren't so punishing as to kill interest or the narrative in the process.Lets strap in.
>>2214286>in this continuity, her and Robin have never even metI guess that's good. We don't have to worry about Dick getting overprotective, then. Then again, main continuity Dick didn't much like Cassandra last I was tracking...But I'm a couple years out of date on the Bat books, so that may have changed.
>>2214206>>2214208Ignoring him worked well enough last time, so you decide to just go with that and refuse to acknowledge his presence until one of the others arrives. You don't look at him, don't give any indication that you heard him, you just pretend he doesn't exist."Come now, Peter, I just want to talk," Blood insists, walking to one of the bedside chairs and sitting down. "Besides...."His human eye glows, and his voice takes on a much more venomous tone. "You are in no state to defy me right now, Peter!"Horrific pain shoots through your head, and you begin to thrash about on the bed as the pain seems to spread throughout your body, every inch of you feeling as if a million volts is coursing through it, and every second seeming to last forever. You try to scream, but your mouth shuts itself as soon as it opens, heavily muffling you.Finally, it stops, and Blood folds his arms on his lap, smirking devilishly. "Now, do I have your attention, Peter?" he asks. "I'd hate to have to punish you again."You look at him."Good, we're making progress," Blood jokes, standing back up and coming to stand at the bedside. "Now, Peter, I don't want for us to be enemies. That was never my intent. All of this is just a mistake. And it's a mistake I can easily correct."He leans closer. "I can restore your memories, Peter, give you back your old life, let you be the person you once were. You can still have the glorious destiny we prepared you for, you can reunite with your friends."He smiles. "And your family."His eye glows again, and for a few, horribly frustrating moments, all of your memories seem to be right there, tantalizingly out of reach. You know these things, you know you know them, it should be so obvious, you should remember that-And in a flash, it's gone."Peter, I was quite proud of you, you know," Blood admits, circling the bed. "Everyone was. You were truly gifted, and your future was so bright. Now, though, you stand at the final crossroads of your path. You can either join with me, and I will restore what you have lost, or you can continue to defy me, and I can end your life right here and now.">A.

Rip the dream
>>2214363>>2214362>>2214358>>2214349That's quite the ultimatum. And after coming so close to having your memories restored, it's agonizing to have them ripped away once again. Right now, you want nothing more than to remember what you've lost, where you came from, who you are. He's offering it to you on a silver platter, and the alternative is death. Still, if you agree to serve him without even knowing what he plans to do...you don't know if you can rightly do that. Promising to dedicate yourself blindly to someone who has threatened your life and now is holding a gun to your head does not sit right with you, nor does giving in to this jerk. He's another psychic who's trying to dominate your mind and body, and force you to submit to his will. A competitor like you does not appreciate that.Still, what choice do you have?"Restore my memories first," you tell him. "Then let me decide."Blood chuckles, moving back a bit. "A reasonable request, but I'm afraid I'm not going to negotiate any further."His eye glows, and once again you feel that horrific pain wrack your body and brain. Once again, you can't even scream, and the agony is unbearable. It's almost enough to make you give in, but you hesitate when Cyborg and Robin step into the room, each of them looking at you with horrified expressions.Blood slinks back, but the pain does not subside. Robin and Cyborg rush to the machines, saying something that you can't hear. Cyborg rushes out of the room, returning but a moment later with a syringe. Before you even register that he's injected you with something, you lose consciousness once again.Darkness surrounds you, stretching as endlessly as space itself. You can't really see where you are, but you can feel something solid beneath you, so that's something. A light shines from above, illuminating the area, and you see that you're on a large, circular platform, and you're not alone.Brother Blood smirks at you from the platform's other side, beginning to casually stroll toward you."Alone at last, Peter," he tells you with a laugh, looking up at the sky and shaking his head. "Not a lot going on in the ol' noggin, is there?">>A. "Wait, we're in my head?">>B. "This is just a dream...">C. Create a barrier between the two of you. There's plenty of reason to be scared now.>D.

>>2214428>>A.>C.Using our powers seems like a trap, but not much we can do in this situation. I don't think we can win this one ourselves. We got to hope the Titans can help.
>>2214428>>A. "Wait, we're in my head?">E. Keep your powers controlled and create a barrierI don't know what to do anymore, so might as well see if the barrier can do anything to prevent him from wrecking us any further.

>>2214428>>A. "Wait, we're in my head?">F. Keep your powers controlled and attempt to push him backMaybe it will "push" hit out of our head or maybe it will do nothing, I'm the hopeful type
where's manhunter when you need him
>>2214465Our best bet is Raven at the moment, but yeah, I'll take Manhunter if they've got him on speed dial.I don't think we can beat Blood. He's too deep in our head. We go down fighting or we're saved by our friends, but we're not giving Blood what he wants.
>>2214445>>2214453"Wait, we're in my head?" you ask, thrusting your hands toward Blood and creating a barrier between the two of you. As you focus, it stretches out to divide the platform in half, creating a perfect wall between both you and Blood, who takes a moment to examine your handiwork, seeming slightly impressed, but only for a moment."Yes, that's right," he confirms, gently tapping the barrier. "Normally, I'd never be able to venture this far into your head from so great a distance. But with how much you've strained your mind...."He knocks on the barrier, which shatters like glass."I can do as I please.">To be continuedThat's where we'll be leaving off for this section, folks, I hope you all had an enjoyable time.As always, feedback is welcome and encouraged, and I will be lurking to see what you all have to say.I hope you all had fun
>>2214482Nice. Enjoyed myself as always.When is the next game planned for?
>>2214489Probably Tuesday night, but we'll see.
>>2214494Cool.What's the typical time you plan to run? I ended up missing the first few votes due to how early it started.
>>2214502Usually around 6 Eastern, but I had some extra time today so I started early.
so how long till we get a "Numbers" session
>>2214609What do you mean?
>>2214631Probably not happening
>>2214634When will we fight our evil alter ego Retep?
>>2214637I.....Idunno, maybe if Trigon shows up and pulls that "inner demon" crap again
>>2213963>>A. Your past. Who were you before the surgery gave you these powers?I just noticed this. Had we previously been given any indication that the surgery was responsible for our powers? My impression was that gaining our powers were unrelated and happened before the accident.
>>2214642I thought I'd implied it, but maybe I misremembered
>>2214645So worst case scenario, it wasn't a spoiler.Oh also, today I really enjoyed this line:"Alone at last, Peter," he tells you with a laugh, looking up at the sky and shaking his head. "Not a lot going on in the ol' noggin, is there?"The sudden shift between formal to casual rings true to cartoon Blood, who balanced menacing and goofy well. Man, if that guy could just curb his megalomaniac tendencies he'd be just a really fascinating and entertaining dude.
Thoughts about the next section: Blood has let slip quite a few details. Firstly that trying to unlock new powers quickly increases our strain considerably (and making our powers uncontrollable to an extent), that strain I'm turn makes us more vulnerable to his influence, and that he is communicating with us from a distance, as opposed to being a psychic imprint or other alternate explanation.Given how easily our shield was blown away, our powers might be useless, or worse, further increase strain and make us even more vulnerable. It might be better to rely on unarmed fighting, or see if we can use non-powered mental techniques (Breathing exercises, meditation, etc) to reduce strain and thus diminish his influence.This is all conjecture, there's not enough to home in on a correct conclusion. The answer could just as well be to unlock the power of Hope and wait it out until the Titans ride to our rescue. The answer could be that in our minds cape using our powers doesn't cause strain because we're not really using the them.Thoughts on our approach?
Also, just noticed, our power might not be based on the emotional light spectrum, but instead, Metal Gear Solid villains. We still need to collect The Pain and The End.
>>2214993I'm gonna wait to see what happens next and what our options are before I worry too much about it, but I'm thinking to try and keep Blood talking for as long as possible. Maybe Peter will be able to use breathing exercises without focusing 100% on them, I'm not sure how they work.I feel like fighting won't work and may even contribute to Peter's mental strain. I also feel like Blood is unlikely to let Peter meditate or otherwise focus entirely on calming down. Without a clear path to victory against a superior opponent, all you can really do is try to drag things out for as long as possible and hope an opportunity comes.
>>2215211Not worried so much as engaged and with time to kill at work. Sounds like we have the same train of thought though.Narratively, when there isn't enough information to make an informed decision, it makes sense to make a reasonable decision (any reasonable decision, really) and adjust if new information suggests you should.
I like this, good job QM.You've found a neat way to keep anons from power gaming and choosing emotions and power meditation all the time
>>2215305We are potentially overpowered, due to the breadth of our powers, but thus far the magnitude of our powers, particularly at the controlled level, is fairly low, and I'm okay with that. I suspect we could develop into a wizard-style character with more firepower like Raven, but I really like the Kung Fu wizard route: lower power, but well-integrated and with a solid basis in skill, insulating us from the close ranged and high speed vulnerabilities of a wizard.
Will be running in a little bit
>>2216068Great to hear it!
>>2216068Gold leader standing by.
>>2216068Reporting for duty, sir.
As your barrier crumbles to pieces, Blood continues to leisurely stroll toward you, whistling to himself as he takes each step. You don't know what his deal is right now. A minute ago, he was screaming at you and torturing your mind, but now he just looks like he's taking a pleasant walk through the park, occasionally gazing at the crumbling pieces of barrier, but mostly just absentmindedly walking toward you.Whether you choose to admit it or not, you're scared. Blood held your life in his hands moments ago when you were awake, and even in your unconscious state he's strutting through your mind like he owns the place. With how easily he took down your attempts at a defense, you wonder if perhaps he really does own it.Blood dusts himself off, coming to a stop and looking around the platform the two of you currently occupy. "I'm guessing you don't entertain very often. Well, thank you for making me the exception, even if I did have to let myself in.">A. Get as angry as you can and hit him with everything you have>B. Let your fear wash over you, create the strongest barrier you can>C. Use controlled Psychic Attacks>D. Use a controlled barrier>E. Rush in there and try to fight him hand-to-hand>F.

>>2216272Chagin my vote and supporting: >>2216277
>>2216277>>2216285>>2216292"Why do I even matter to you?" you ask Blood, partly out of desperation to stall for time, and partly because this question has been bugging you ever since you woke that day."Peter, Peter, Peter...." Blood chides as he shakes his head. "Someone hasn't been paying attention. I told you, you were meant to help me change the world. You have a great destiny to fulfill. You were groomed for quite some time, trained by the best the HIVE had to offer, and given an honor most would have killed for. Now, you've betrayed your friends, family, and allies to play hero with a bunch of costumed children."He's not advancing on you, nor is he making any aggressive moves at the moment, so you certainly consider that an improvement. You just hope it lasts. In the real world, you never stood a chance against Blood, and if your mind is in as bad a condition as the madman claims, you might have even less of a chance in here."The Teen Titans are supposed to be your enemies, Peter," Blood tells you, frustrated. "You were supposed to help bring about their destruction. And now, you call them allies, and friends. I'll let you in on a little secret, Peter. The Titans are doomed. If you choose to stand with those brats, you will meet an even worse fate than what awaits them!">>A. "What's this destiny you keep talking about? I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing!">>B.

>>2216331>>F. You keep saying that yet you have given no proof on any of what you said.

>>2216331>C.>D.>F. Why do you rely on me joining you so badly for this "destiny"?Though I suppose F can be divulged more with A.
>>2216372>Thrust in our friends
>>2216383Why else do you think we keep complimenting star?
>>2216388Do you really want to provoke the rest of the team like that?
>>2216372>Thrust in our friendsIs it just me or does that sound like part of the subtitle to a season of Symphogear?
>>2216356>>2216361>>2216366"Did I even have friends in the HIVE?" you ask, your desire to stall giving more ground to true curiosity. "You guys don't seem like the friendliest bunch."Blood looks amused. "We can be quite chummy with our own, Peter. And yes, you did have friends. In fact, you were as thick as thieves. Some of them were even given the same honor as you, Peter. Needless to say, they're shocked, hurt, and disappointed by your decision to abandon us.""What's this destiny you keep talking about?" you ask in frustration. "I don't even know what I'm supposed to be doing!""It's as I said, Peter," Blood speaks slowly, as if speaking to a particularly dull child. "You were going to help me change the world. Destroying the Titans would be part of it, but not the end. You were to be given even greater gifts, powers and knowledge beyond imagination, if only you'd remained loyal."Swallowing your frustration at not being given a clear answer, you ask Blood another question, though you aren't sure you're going to like any answer he gives, whether it's true or not."You mentioned my family," you remind him. "What about them?"Blood smiles. "Let's just say that your bloodline has more than one member present within the HIVE. Your family is-mostly alive, and those that remain miss you terribly. I could take you back to them, you know. I'll let you reunite with your family and friends, do some catching up, and then we can put all of this behind us.">>A. "I don't believe you.">>B. "If they're anything like you, I have no family">>C. "I'll come back to you.">>D. "I'm not coming back.">>E. "Why are you going to so much trouble to bring me back?

>>2216446>E.Continue to stall for time.I have a really fun line idea (I think) for when he catches on and gives us an ultimatum.
>>2216446>A. "I don't believe you.">E.
>>2216446>>>E. "Why are you going to so much trouble to bring me back? If there are others like me, I can't be completely irreplaceable."any one else notice how he keeps saying all this shit with out giving any substance to it
>>2216469He's cagey, and he may be drinking his own kool-aid.
>>2216469Yep. Hasn't given any names, descriptions, or anything at all to go off of. He's trying to play the fiddler here.
>>2216469>>2216496>any one else notice how he keeps saying all this shit with out giving any substance to it>Yep. Hasn't given any names, descriptions, or anything at all to go off of. He's trying to play the fiddler here.If Brother blood can't name at least 5 King Crimson songs there's no way he's ever spent any time with Peter before!
>>2216514It's Pete's mind, he could probably play a song inside his mind.That said, Pete's training gives substance to his claims, but it could've been implanted so...
>>2216514Blood: uh, uh, court of the crimson king.Peter: That's one.Blood: ...Starless.Peter: Two.Blood: Epitaph.Peter: Threeeeeee...Blood: Elephant Talk.Peter: Four.Blood: and 21st Century Digital Boy!Peter: ...You got fucking Elephant Talk, but you fucked up THAT one?Brother Blood listens to Bad Religion
>>2216450"Why are you going to so much trouble to bring me back?" you ask him, hoping some miracle occurs sooner rather than later. "If there are others like me, I can't be completely irreplaceable."Blood looks at you like that was the first intelligent thing you've said all day. You don't know whether to consider that a good thing or a bad thing."True, you can be replaced, but not easily," Blood answers, and for once you're almost positive he's telling the truth. "It took time and effort to shape you into someone worthy of the destiny you've been offered. It will take time and effort to prepare another to take your place."If there are others like you, but you still need to be replaced, you wonder just how many like you there are, and what Blood needs so many for. What is this "great destiny" he keeps ranting about? It doesn't seem like you're going to get a straight answer."Still," Blood continues, his eye glowing dangerously.Pain shoots through you, and you fall to your knees, then the floor as he begins to approach you once again. His pace is slow but deliberate as he makes his way toward your prostrated form."If I must go through the effort of replacing you, then that's what I'll do," he explains as he stands over you. "And I will make sure that you suffer for making me go to that kind of trouble."You feel something move through you, but it's not pain. Just the opposite, in fact. It's some sort of warmth that makes the pain fade away, and gives you a sense of returning strength. You aren't sure where it's coming from, or if it will be enough to stop Blood, but it's clearly preferable to the sensations you had seconds ago."Now, Peter, this is your last chance," Blood assures you, raising his left hand, and psychically pulling you off the ground. Your feet dangle just above the surface of the platform, and it feels as it you're being choked, despite not having a true physical form at the moment. "Now, I'll make this a simple choice," he tells you, showing off the claws on his metallic right hand. "Join me or die."You can feel more of that healing energy coursing through you, but you still doubt it will be enough to stop Blood.>>A. "Alright, I'll join you.">>B. "How about neither?">>C. "Fag.">D. Throw a Psychic Punch at his face>E. Try pushing him back with Psychic Energy>F. Create as strong a barrier as you can between the two of you>G. Kick him in the face>/>H. Write-in

>>2216569We're being force choked, I don't think we can roll off because we're hovering off the ground.

>>2216553>>B. >F.Then expend the barrier until we push him out of our mind

>>2216553Supporting >>2216583Might as well start with something physical while we are in range for it. Hurts our brain less too.
>>2216553>H. TeleportMaybe we can break his concentration by moving to the side instead of resisting head on? Figuratively speaking.
>>2216604Why'd you even include such an immature and inappropriate choice? I'll have you know this is a good christian web site
>>2216626Because anons try to write it in every time, so I figured I'd do the work for them
>>2216634I mean it's like one guy. You really shouldn't mistake the actions of a few for something people ACTUALLY want to do. I mean that's just dumb.
>>2216641Well, live and learn, even with it as an option it didn't win.
>>2216642Bah, a guy can dream though
>>2216602>>2216583>>2216563"How about neither?" you ask, surprising Blood with a kick to the face.Had he known it was coming, the kick would have never connected, but he truly was not expecting you to even be able to fight back, much less to try and do so without your powers. You're pleased to see that the kick knocks him to the ground. His hold on you released, you drop to the platform's surface, that choking sensation gone, and your feelings of strength growing greater by the second. Your power is returning, and this is your mind. Blood said himself that he wouldn't have been able to manage something had you not been so badly weakened. Now, it looks like you're back in control, and Blood realizes it. He stares daggers at you, picking himself off the ground and slowly beginning to back away."You've made your choice," he declares as he nears the edge of the platform. "I'll be in touch.">>A. "And I'll be ready for you.">>B. "Where do you think you're going?">C. Let him go>D. Try what you attempted the first time you fought him, and use your powers to restrain him>E.

>>2216664>>C. Let him go>>A. "And I'll be ready for you."I'd like him out of our head asap, i don't want the mental strain of a punch giving him more leverage again.
>>2216666Thanks mega Satan, good luck with your future shitposting.
>>2216664>>A. "And I'll be ready for you.">C. Let him goFag.
Let's hope this serves as a lesson to anons so they stop abusing our powers all the time.Nah who i'm kidding anonymous are terrible at long plan attemps.
>>2216703Shows what you know, I'm planning on us managing to get a yellow or green ring, so we can eventually slap Blood silly with mental and energy constructs
>>2216703Actually, credit where it's due, the anons have done well so far.Though, if other quests I've seen are any indication, that won't last forever.
>>2216703I'm planning on creating a bunch of Tulpa Guards to fight for us.
>>2216664>>>A. "And I'll be ready for you.">C. Let him go
>>2216703>>2216707>>2216720I'm planning on cloning Peter's brain so that if he ever gets too mentally fatigued again he can just pop in a fresh mind and be good to go.
>>2216731Ooo we should get cyborg to turn our head into a jar so we can just swap brains instantly
>>2216673"And I'll be ready for you," you promise, letting Blood leave your head without a fight. You're just glad to have him gone, and honestly worried that attacking him would drain you to the point where he could turn the tables again.With Blood gone, you're left alone in your mind, but only briefly. Very soon, you're roused to consciousness, sitting up in bed in the medical wing to find Cyborg holding smelling salts under your nose. Raven sits in one of the nearby chairs, sweating, breathing heavily, and just looking exhausted. Beast Boy is standing a bit further away, looking relieved to see you up."Peter!" Starfire shouts, flying right up to your side. "I am overjoyed to see you well once again. We were most worried for you.""Someone should call Robin and tell him he's up," Raven says to the others from her spot on the chairs."I'll do it," Beast Boy volunteers, taking out his communicator and stepping out of the room.>>A. "What happened?">>B. "Blood was in my mind. He almost killed me.">>C. "I felt like something was healing me. Did you guys do something?">>D. "Sorry for worrying you guys.">E. Go to sleep>/>>F. Write-in
>>2216708No MoG don't praise then or else they will start having self esteem and will be less cautious then ever
>>2216761>>B. "Blood was in my mind. He almost killed me.">>C. "I felt like something was healing me. Did you guys do something?">>D. "Sorry for worrying you guys."
>>2216761>>>B. "Blood was in my mind. He almost killed me.">>D. "Sorry for worrying you guys."
>>2216731As funny as that is, wouldn't some sort of medical relaxing agent or a specially made concoction for psychic fatigue be more practical?...Or do you just want to become a Psyborg?
>>2216708Don't be afraid to exercise veto power if its for the health of the game. And if the anons can't handle that, then it was probably too far gone already.
>>2216731>>2216752>Not having the brain run parallel to our own to not only double our stamina reserves by tapping from two sources, but potentially double the strength of the spells by using both at onceYou need to think crazier
>>2216782Or get half a dozen cloned psychic brain that gets connected to us like a gestalt hive mind
>>2216782Dude, if Blood really did give other people powers similar to ours, we need to harvest their brains and use them in our brain array for even more power.
>>2216782Or somehow tap into the mental power of the entire human race itself to mental spirit bomb our enemies
>>2216799That's Brainiac-tier, but we can get there eventually
>>2216795Or fuck them and create the perfect physic being
>>2216799>>2216795>>2216792A hivemind hivemind..........Huh.
>>2216707>>2216720>>2216731>>2216752>>2216782>>2216792>>2216795>>2216799>>2216804>>2216806Blood was in our head for a couple minutes and we're suddenly thinking like power-mad supervillains. Coincidence?
>>2216806You mean have sex with all of them in some weird artificial selection, then we speed up growth with use of speedforce shenanigans.Finally when we are done with the breeding we select one of our descendants of great potential and transfer our mind into them.Genius plan eh?
>>2216819Blood's already won. When we spiral out of control and end up killing him in our own power mad scheme, will he be proud or bitter?
>>2216819We wont be supervillains once the whole world is under one mind. Who's to say what is evil and what is good if they're all under the consensus of one? It's a plan in the working though, so it'll be on the backburner for the moment.>>2216822I'm pretty sure that's what Blood did to have us. Maybe not him fucking per se, but definitely some fuckery going on.
>>2216826Depends on how we do it. If we spaz our way into world domination, he'll be bitter.
>>2216852Don't look at me. I'm the good, if annoyingly chatty, one.
>>2216852Ok, ok, sorry.
>>2216852Every time I think of the Random Fag Comment I laugh my ass off. Having so much laughter all through out the day's made me really hyper and put my autism into overdrive
>>2216852We haven't done anything!Yet...
>>2216774>>2216770>>2216766"Blood was in my mind..." you tell the others. "He almost killed me.""We know," Cyborg says grimly. "We honestly weren't sure you'd survive."Well, that's a comforting thought."I felt like something was healing me when I fought Blood," you continue, looking around at your friends. "Did you guys do something?""Raven did," Beast Boy tells you, smiling over at the girl. "She was able to heal you enough to fight back against Blood.""Then I woke you with smelling salts," Cyborg adds. "We thought that, if you woke up,you might be able to force Blood back out, but it looks like you managed that while you were still asleep."So, you owe them once again. "Sorry for worrying you guys," you tell them."Do not apologize," Starfire instructs. "You are our friend. It is only natural that we worry for you. That is what friends do.""Yeah, besides, if one of us was in trouble, you'd do whatever you could to help, right?" Cyborg asks.You nod. Raven stands up. "I need to get some rest. That whole experience took a lot out of me. I'll see you guys later."Raven leaves the room, with the others calling goodbyes after her. Not long after Raven leaves, Robin shows up, stopping at the door and talking to an unseen person, assuring them that he'll be right out."Hey," he greets. "Glad to see you're okay."Okay might be overselling it, but you're honestly just glad to have Blood out of your head for now. And, also being alive is kind of nice. So is being conscious and not in total agony...okay, maybe "okay" isn't such a bad description."What happened?" Robin asks, standing beside Starfire."Blood got into his head," Starfire explains for you. "But how?" Robin asks.>>A. "He said it was because I strained my mind too much. I pushed it until it couldn't take anymore, and that made it weak enough for him to force himself in.">>B. "Who were you talking to out there?">>C. "Is Raven going to be alright?">D. "Can I go to sleep?">E. "Can I get out of bed and get something to eat?">/>>F. Write-in

>>2216937Er, that >Eshould be an >F

>>2216953>>2216958"He said it was because I strained my mind too much," you explain. "I pushed it until it couldn't take anymore, and it became weak enough for him to force himself in. He's been broadcasting at a distance, using his powers to communicate with me.""That's a new one," Cyborg remarks, sounding a lot more bitter than skeptical. "He keeps finding creative ways to be a royal pain in the-""Were you able to find out anything else?" Robin interrupts. "He said that I have family and friends that are part of the HIVE, and that one of the things I was supposed to do for them was help destroy you," you admit. "He also said there are others like me.""So you were probably meant to be part of some special team Blood was going to send against us," Robin sums up. "I'll bet Blood's regretting that plan now," Beast Boy remarks. Cyborg smiles at that."Can I get out of bed and get something to eat?" you request."If you're feeling up to it," Robin responds, helping you get out of bed. The five of you leave the medical wing, finding a girl with long, white hair, grey armor, and what looks to be quite a few weapons waiting, leaning against a wall. Since the other Titans don't seem worried, you take it she's the sparring partner the others talked about."So, crisis averted?" she asks nobody in particular."For now," Robin answers, stopping to talk to her. "But this isn't over. Not by a long shot."The girl nods in understanding. "From what I've heard, Blood's persistent, not to mention vengeful. The only way you've seen the last of him is if he winds up dead before he has the chance to try something again.""If only we could be so lucky," Cyborg grumbles.The girl looks at you, and it feels almost as if she's sizing you up and mentally planning how best to take you down in a fight. It's not very comforting."You're the new Titan, then?" she asks.>>A. "That's right, my name's Peter.">>B. "That's right, my name's Kid Crimson.">C. "Can we talk later? My stomach feels like it's about to eat itself.">/>>D. Write-in
>>2217027>>>B. "That's right, my name's Kid Crimson."
>>2217027>A+BKing Crimson, but you can call me Pete
>>2217046Let's keep it smooth
>>2217046Yeah, changing mine (>>2217033) to this.
>>2217055>>2217046We will only start calling ourself King Crimson when we hot adulthood. For now we are just Kid Crimson
>>2217046I'll support this just don't forget we're still Kid Crimson, haven't been crowned yet.
>>2217046Just Kid Crimson. We aren't King Crimson yet.
>>2217027>>>A. "That's right, my name's Peter."
>>2217046Oh yeah I meant Kid CrimsonMy bad guys, I'm sleepy
>>2217046>>2217055"Kid Crimson," you introduce, holding out a hand. "But you can call me Pete."The girl smiles, shaking your hand. "Ravager, but you can call me Rose.""Rose comes by from time to time to train with us," Robin explains. "She's an excellent fighter."Rose shrugs. "If there was one positive about trying to follow in my father's footsteps, it's that I learned to fight almost as well as him.""Rose is an honorary Titan," Robin explains. "She's not officially part of our team, but she has a communicator in case she ever needs us or we ever need her.">>A. "Are there a lot of honorary Titans?">>B. "How come she's not an official member of the team?">>C. "Would you mind sparring with me sometime, Rose?">D. "Nice meeting you." (Go get some food)>>E. "Who's your father?">/>>F. Write-in

>>2217100>>2217102>>2217109>>2217113>>2217118Okay, looks like we have a deadlock in terms of inviting everyone for lunch
>>2217098>>A. "Are there a lot of honorary Titans?">>D. "Nice meeting you." (Go get some food)
>>2217146Yeah I don't mind inviting everyone. so add that to my vote>>2217109
>>2217147Okay, nevermind, Pete's eating alone.
>>2217150In that case, we technically have a deadlock again, but since >>2217147 came later, I guess we'll go with it.Unless there are any serious objections
>>2217156I will support inviting them if we're still locked.
>>2217156>>A. "Are there a lot of honorary Titans?">>D. "Nice meeting you." (Go get some food)Fuck it I don't feel like stalling this
btw, MoG, how like shit do we look right now?
>>2217160And you broke the lock.>>2217161Oh for fuck's sake.
>>2217165You look like you had a very bad night's sleep
>>2217156When there is a deadlock, Peter should just default to calling everyone a fag.
>>2217168All things considered, that's pretty good. Raven is a good healer. We should get her something nice.
>>2217147>>2217113Fuck it, I flipped a coin, the write-in won
>>2217174a new book on the occult and some hippie dippie tea from the herbalist in town maybe
>>2217188I feel like we'd probably end up getting her something fake or redundant if we went for an occult book, but some nice tea would probably be good. She also seems to like scary movies, so maybe one of those would be good.>inb4 evil bong
>>2217201jump city is on the west coast right? couldn't we just grab a good gram of weed for her? she seems the type
>>2217207Yes, but also the legal age is 21 for weed.
>>2217201We could do activities with her as well.
>>2217211Sure, but her sociability varies. Maybe tea and a scary movie, and an offer to watch it with her if she wants might be best.
>>2217211You want to "do activities" with her?Lewd activities like Hand Holding?
>>2217216wait I got it. Tea and one of those Japanese horror movies
>>2217233You're not supposed to use the spoiler image to post nsfw material.>>2217234Sure. Or classic horror movies.
>>2217233I'm not Team Raven, but go ahead. For
>>2217113>>2217100"Nice meeting you," you say to Rose. "Hey, what do you guys say we talk over lunch?""Sounds good to me," Cyborg agrees. "All this stress has got me starving.""I could eat," Rose agrees. "Alright, I'll make tofu dogs for everybody that wants them!" Beast Boy declares."So, just you then?" Cyborg asks.Beast Boy nods, not seeming insulted. "Yep, plenty for me."Everyone walks together to the living room, and as you make your way there, you take a minute to size up Rose like she did to you. She's got the figure of somebody who works out quite a lot, and you can see a multitude of weapons on her person, from katanas, to throwing stars, to daggers and throwing knives. She carries herself in such a way that you have the feeling she's ready for a fight at a moment's notice. It's not hard to believe Robin's claim that she's a great fighter; she certainly looks the part.Soon, everyone's gathered around the table while Cyborg serves up hot dogs, and two huge bags of potato chips. There's ketchup, mustard (with plenty extra for Starfire), relish, and plenty to drink. It's not a healthy or fancy lunch, but it's nice and filling."So, are there a lot of honorary Titans?" you ask after scarfing down your first hot dog."Mhmm," Robin nods as he takes a bite out of his. "All over the world, and we get new members pretty often these days.""We should really stop calling them "honorary" Titans," Cyborg comments. "They fight crime just as often as we do, some of them have formed teams, and they all keep in touch with us.""Yeah, but we're the original Titans," Beast Boy points out, grabbing a potato chip. "Peter only recently joined us," Starfire points out. "Does that make him an "honorary" Titan, Beast Boy?"Beast Boy looks at you nervously, though that stops when he realizes you're not about to go off on him or anything. "No," he says. "Eh, we can worry about titles later," Cyborg declares, eating his third hot dog. "Hey, Rose?" you say to the white-haired girl, who's sitting diagonal from you."Yes?" she asks, looking your way."You mentioned your father being a great fighter," you remind her. "Who is he?"The table goes quiet, and Robin looks like he's about to say something along the lines of "maybe this isn't the best topic", but Rose answers, albeit not sounding thrilled about it.>Continued
>>2217269"Slade Wilson," she tells you. "Ex-military turned super villain that's given this city plenty of trouble. When I was younger, I tried to follow in his footsteps. I emulated him and tried to be just like him."She allows herself a smile. "But, then the Titans made me realize I didn't have to be like him. So, I changed my ways and fight for the good guys now."Slade. You keep hearing that name from just about everybody. Sounds like he was some serious bad news, maybe even up there with the likes of Brother Blood.>>A. "How come you're not a full member of the team?">>B. "Would you mind sparring with me sometime?">>C.

>>2217277>>>B. "Would you mind sparring with me sometime?">>>>C. "Trust me, I know what it's like to come from a bad background. Glad you're with the good guys."
>>2217277I'll support >>2217287
>>2217277>>D. "Wait, is that why Kid Flash and Jinx aren't here? Because they're honorary Titans?"Ya know, its odd we haven't though about them much since they rescued us. you'd think we'd care about them since they actually busted us out.
>>2217295We should get them a gift too.
>>2217287Support, the road to Waifu starts with being thoughtful
>>2217302>>2217299>>2217287>>2217295Bringing her tea for totally innocent reasons, I'm sure

Because they're honorary Titans?">F. See if someone will spar with you after lunch (specify)Rose. We've got plenty of chances to spar with the regulars, but this is a rare chance. And besides, since we now know trying to master our psychic abilities too fast leaves us vulnerable to Blood, we have all the more reason to start in on the "Kung Fu" half of being a Kung Fu Wizard.
>>2217309Fair point>>2217299They would probably appreciate that
>>2217306I'm okay with waifu route or friend route. We're just being considerate. I fully expect Raven to refuse visitors right now, and we'll just leave the tea and snacks outside her room for her.>>2217315We'll need to do a shopping trip. Really, we should just blow our remaining stipend on getting gifts for everyone for being so great.
>>2217277>>C. "Trust me, I know what it's like to come from a bad background. Glad you're with the good guys.">>D. "Wait, is that why Kid Flash and Jinx aren't here?

>>2217328Well, Rose isn't leaving in ten minutes. Depending on how you spend your time, you might still get a chance to spar with her.
>>2217287>>2217309We have a draw, friends. If no tiebreaker in a few minutes I'll flip a coin
>>2217287I'll support, plus MoG said we should have plenty of time to spar with rose still
>>2217358So long as you don't spend a ton of time doing something else, yeah, you can probably manage that. Might be a good idea to wait a short bit before exerting yourself like that, anyway.
>>2217369Also a good point, we did kinda just got mind fucked
>>2217277>>>B. "Would you mind sparring with me sometime?">>>C. "Trust me, I know what it's like to come from a bad background. Glad you're with the good guys."Reverse the order and soften it a bit. "I think I get what it's" VS I totally know all about this business.
>>2217287"Trust me, I know what it's like to come from a bad background," you tell Rose. "Glad you're with the good guys."Rose seems to appreciate that. "Thanks. Glad you wound up on the right side, too.""Hey, would you mind sparring with me sometime?" you ask her."Uh, dude..." Beast Boy starts warning you."Sure," Rose tells you. "But only when you don't look like you ran a marathon in your sleep."When you're finished eating, you decide to bring Raven some tea and a light snack. She seemed exhausted, and a little fuel might do her some good right now. Plus, you think you should do at least something small for her after all she's done for you. You make some tea (Starfire's able to direct you in preparing the kind Raven likes), and grab something light for your friend to eat (you settle on some crackers and peanut butter). Then, you put it on a small tray and take it out of the living room, carrying it to Raven's door, and giving a knock with your psychic powers (convenient when your hands are full).The door slides partway open, and the one eye of Raven's that you can see looks down to the tray."What's this?" she asks.>>A. "I thought you might need to eat or drink something after what you did.">>B. "I wanted to thank you for what you did.">>C. "You missed lunch, so I thought you might be hungry.">D. "See you later."

>>2217413>C.While I think we could get away with thanking her this time, keeping it casual respects her wishes. We look like crap, she'll get the picture.
>>2217413>>D. "See you later." (Go back to the others).>Just leaves with the tray without another wordShitpost aside,>B>C
>>2217413>E. "Tea, ckrackers and peaunut butter">C
>>2217413>"Uh, dude..." Beast Boy starts warning you.Silly Beast Boy, clearly Peter loves the kind of woman that can kick his ass.>>C. "You missed lunch, so I thought you might be hungry."
>>2217438>Raven>Starfire>RoseIt checks out
>>2217443There's not a ton of superhero ladies that can't kick your ass.
>>2217451He's barely said two words to Jinx
>>2217454Besides she's with Kid flash isn't she?>>2217443Just you wait until he meets Troy and Cassandra.
>>2217454Hey I'm just trying to list down all women we met that can kick our ass which probably includes all of them except that random purse lady. Like the guy above me said there's not a lot of superheroines that CAN'T kick our ass
>>2217443>CassandraAnd yes, I know we haven't met her yet, but look at that poll.We all know she's gonna show up to the waifu war like Commodore Perry and just blow all the other girls out of the water.
>>2217461Yeah, about that....>>2217463>>2217451I was more listing women that Peter has made an effort to spend time with that can kick his ass
>>2217467>Implying Cassandra has time for anything other than fighting crime
>>2217477She makes time for learning how to read.
>>2217470About what? About Jinx and flash or about meeting Troy and Cass
>>2217477Well guess we will become a villan then. Wouldn't be the first time anons go villan to keep a waigu.
>>2217477>implying that doesn't just make her more enticingNot only is she sexy asian ninja Batgirl, but she's also pure as fuck.
>>2217425>>2217434"Tea, crackers, and peanut butter," you answer, earning an eye roll. "You missed lunch, so I thought you might be hungry."Raven's door opens the rest of the way, and she looks down at the tray, seeming surprised for some reason, like, really surprised. You guess she's not used to people bringing her things. Or maybe she's surprised that you came to give her something instead of asking her for help with something."Thank you," she says, reaching out and taking the tray from you, a smile coming to her face for a moment.She looks back up. "No offense, but you don't look so good. You should probably get some rest. My magic was only able to do so much, especially with Blood in your head."She lets out a tired sigh. "I'm going to go get some rest myself. Thank you for the tea and crackers."She turns around and walks back into her room, the door shutting behind her. You take a moment to decide what to do next.>A. Go to your room and take a nap>B. Go see if Rose is ready to spar>C. Go tell the others that you can fly, or float, or whatever>D. Go see if anybody wants to play some video games>E. Go for a walk, some fresh air might do you some good
>>2217512>A. Go to your room and take a napMultiple characters have told us we look like shit. Time for nap.
>>2217512>>A. Go to your room and take a nap
>>2217512>C. + And that's why I was nearly mind murdered. Goodnight!>A.
>>2217512>ATomorrow is another day. don't want to be to weak and have Blood taking possesion of our mind again
>>2217512>A. Go to your room and take a napA black pool opened up at my feet. I dived in. It had no bottom. I felt pretty good - like an amputated leg.
>>2217512>A. Go to your room and take a nap>>C. Go tell the others that you can fly, or float, or whateverI like the idea of Peter just going "Hey guys I can fly now kay g'night"
>>2217515>>2217516>>2217526>>2217528Both Rose and Raven have told you that you're looking pretty bad right now. That seems a good indicator that you should go and get some sleep. Tomorrow's another day, and once you're refreshed, you'll be able to face it much better. Then again, it's only lunch time, so after a nap, you should be able to do some stuff today.First thing's first. You go to to your room, climb under the covers, and fall asleep right away.>To be continuedThat's where we'll stop for tonight, everyone.As always, I welcome questions, feedback, and so on.I hope you all had fun.
>>2217562Good times, thanks for running.
>>2217568Thanks for playing
>>2217562Thanks for running.
>>2217592Thanks for playing
>>2217562Good run MoG.Pet the dogs.
>>2217603They are sleeping soundly downstairs. I gave them pets and kisses before they went to bed.
>>2217606We will still need pictures of these dogs someday.
Oh right, obligatory question: When's next game scheduled for?
>>2217613Probably Wednesday night. If anything changes, I'll post on my twitter
>>2217616Cool. Though don't feel obligated to run every night. Its good to take a break now and again. No one wants you burning out.
>>2217624This week my nights are free. Next week I go back to college, so my schedule will be up in the air.
>>2217628Raven's opinion of us? what rank is our social link at?
>>2217643She likes you, and appreciates the trust you seem to have in her.
>>2217645Beastboy: Gay for us, or just friends?Other social links?Also, behind the scenes question: Did you have this particular encounter with Blood in mind in advance? Was it meant to be triggered around now or was it totally dependent on when we tried to acquire too many powers?
>>2217656Beast Boy is straight. He thinks you're a pretty cool guy.Cyborg likes you, and definitely sympathizes with your struggles against Blood.Starfire thinks you are a wonderful new friend, and likes that you appreciated her cooking that first nightRobin thinks you're a good person, but he worries about you quite a bit. He also respects how much you put into your training
>>2217664>Peter is overcome by [joy] again and winds up being brain-assassinated.
>>2217664The trap with tje communicator. Was it Slade's doing using Terra's old communicator?
>>2217670>Peter takes [Joy]I wonder if it's possible to derive a power from feeling nothing. We're always at a balance of emotions, some flaring up during particular moments of our daily lives.
I wonder what the felling of rejoice would manifest as Peter's power
>>2217723Was it rose and was she try to test us
Will Peter live up to his Marvel counterpart of same name and his waifu shenanigans?
>>2218027No, not her style.
>>2218075How does Peters HIVE hand-to-hand stack up against roses?
>>2218100We'll find out once we spar against her
>>2218134Ohh are we going the Harem route now?
>>2218221I doubt it
>>2218221I hope not. That'd end up as such a huge mess.Starfire is the character who would be most open to something like that so you'd have to build around her.Peter/Starfire/Robin is currently the most realistic scenario.
>>2218286Plus beast boy
Please no harem shitit's cringy as fuck
>>2218310Jokes aside, I agree. Harem route not being cringey would require an able and supportive QM, anons who wouldn't fuck it up, and the stars and planets aligning.
>>2218321Not to mention the calling of the Old ones while a thousand year comet passes by the earth.How about we just fuck everybody instead
>>2218333Considering it's comics, that's actually viable.
>>2218333As >>2218345 says, that's not out of the question, but it really depends on the tone of the story. I'm not really getting an 'everyone is horny on main' kind of vibe in this game. Compare to Manthor's TT game in which first thread, Adam gets his dick complimented by Harley.
>>2218351I say fuck everything. I mean that weird larva pet starfire has is pretty hot
>>2218351Then there's always the [UNKNOWN] route of dating some random girl.Like what happens with a lot of super heroes.
>>2218358Possibly.Raven and Starfire are the only two true competitors for the Peterbowl right now, on the basis that they've known him the longest and have positive relationships with Pete. I'd be equally satisfied with either of them winning, though Starfire would be the more novel option. Unfortunately she's currently with Robin, and even if that changed, it'd take quite some time for Peter/Starfire to not be a dick (hah) move.Peter simply doesn't know Jinx and Rose well enough at the moment for them to be serious competitors. If they first develop good chemistry with Pete, sure. Same goes for any other girls that show up.I just want it not to be a shit show, and so I hope we take it slow and just let whatever route feels natural unfold.At least until we get to the very end of the quest, unlock [Regret] powers and New Game+ a different route.
>>2218356>Lewding the Silkie
>>2218397I'd argue Raven's the only real competitor at present. Starfire's currently getting Dick from Richard, and I do not want to have Dick Grayson pissed off at us. Even though I always have and always will ship Dick with Babs.
>>2218486I count Starfire as a competitor largely to contrast her with Jinx, Rose, and the various names that get thrown out. Starfire makes more sense than them at the moment, despite being in a relationship. You're right though.
I'm definitely in the minority and Peter doesn't know her but I love Supergirl
>>2218500Hey anon, if we meet her and have good chemistry, don't rush it, and aren't in another relationship at the time... sure, why not? Supergirl isn't even in my top five, but if those conditions are met I pledge to support it and defend it from those who would tear it down in the name of 'not-my-waifu'.I know that might seem like a narrow path, but the best way to avoid the most acrimonious aspects of the waifu wars is to agree that the good of the game is more important.
Just wanted to say this is a pretty good quest. Its slow and more believable then most quests, also it just has a comfy tone. So thanks I guess?Pic related. Is also comfy. Raven best girl
>>2218584There are plenty of legitimate criticisms you can levy at the Teen Titans 2003 cartoon, but holy shit. Even 15 years after it first aired there are still people producing content for it (quests not included), and its incarnations of its protagonists have endured, in some cases becoming the iconic interpretations of those characters.
Will be running in about an hour
>>2218500you sir are my brother and I am with you 100%
>>2218956>>2218500>After third date, Peter dies of shattered pelvis

It's amazing how much good a simple nap can do for you. When you wake up a few hours after lying down, you feel like a whole new person. The pains in your head are gone, you no longer look like someone punched you in both eyes, and you don't feel exhausted by the mere act of standing. You still aren't feeling perfect, but it's one major improvement, to be sure.Getting up and doing what you can to make yourself look presentable, you notice that the mess you made of your room before seems to have been mostly cleaned and fixed. You'll have to thank the others for that. Speaking of, you wonder what they're up to. It's about four in the evening, so dinner will probably be in an hour or so. That should give you time to manage at least one activity.>A. Go see if anyone wants to play some video games>B. Go see if Beast Boy will tell you any more of his story about Terra>C. Go and see if Rose has time to spar with you>D. Go check on Raven>E. Go to the training room and get some exercise>F. Meditate>G. Go for a walk outside the Tower (staying on the island)>H. Go for a walk in the city
>>2219183You've met Beast Boy, haven't you?
>>2219189>E.Sparring with Rose might be a bit too intense right now, but staying limber seems fine.
>>2219189>E. Go to the training room and get some exercise>>2219183It's less about wanting to fuck Terra and more about cucking BB
>>2219189>>E. Go to the training room and get some exercise
>>2219189>EWe should eat tons of eggs while at it.
>>2218627What kind of criticisms? It's been a while since I've watched it and this quest is making me nostalgic. But I don't want to go in with rose-tinted glasses that end up cracking.>>2219189>G. Go for a walk outside the Tower (staying on the island)Enjoy the ocean air.
>>2219206Nothing major. I rewatched it a few months back. I would suppose the most common criticism is its attempt to be animesque at a time when Anime was really catching on the US. Its hardly a deal breaker, but it does feel obvious at times. For another is that the pacing and story telling style while fine, feel slow compared to more modern cartoons, particularly ones that pack things into 15 minutes instead of 30.
>>2219124I checked the quest board on the 4chan server and didn't see any activity. What server is this?
>>2219195>>2219198A little bit of exercise might be just what you need right now. So, leaving your room and stepping out into the hall, you start heading for the training room. You don't pass anybody on the way there, but as you get closer to your destination, you start hearing sounds. Grunts, the sounds of something clashing together, it sounds like there's a fight going on. This prompts you to pick up the pace and you arrive to find that a fight is indeed happening. Robin and Rose stand in the sparring area of the room. Okay, they're not really stand still for more than a second or two at a time, but they're in that area, and fighting hard.They're both armed with metal staves, which clash together as they attack, block, counter, and repeat with their weapons. Beyond that, they make use of basic combat and, from what you can tell, gadgets. What you find most interesting is that Rose actually seems to be overwhelming Robin. Her attack style is vicious and unrelenting, and Robin's having quite the difficult time defending against it. It's odd to see Robin struggle so much. Rose swings her staff down at Robin's head, but he brings his up to block it. That doesn't do him much good, as Rose kicks him in the chest right after, pushing him back and swinging at his head. Robin ducks and jumps, kicking her in the jaw and back-flipping to gain distance. Rose responds by pulling out throwing starts and hurling them at Robin, who spins his staff like a propeller in front of his body to stop them. This gives Rose time to get in close, and she jumps at him, throwing a kick at his head. Robin brings up his staff, stopping her foot, and Rose springs off it, flipping and landing in a crouch. As she rises up, Robin throws a birdarang at her. Rose simply turns her body and lets it pass her, but then looks back to see it circling around and coming back at her.She dashes right at Robin, seeming to take the obvious route of getting Robin's own heat-seeking weapon to hit him instead. Planting one side of her staff on the ground, she vaults right over Robin's head, causing the birdarang to fly right at his face. Robin throws a disk at it, and the resulting blast knocks him right off his feet into the arms of rose, who hooks her arms under his pits and performs a suplex on him.>A. Walk away>B.

>>2219224A private one
>>2219283>>2219277You weren't expecting this, but you decide to stick around and see what happens. There's one thing, though. You can't resist speaking up about the rather intense competition the two crime-fighters seem to be having."You guys are just sparring, right?" you joke.Robin drops smoke pellets onto the ground, then shoots his grappling hook up to the ceiling, finding a place for it to hook on to, and using it to lift himself up. A throwing star shoots out of the smoke, slicing through the rope pulling Robin up, and sending him into a fall. Rose leaps from the smoke at Robin, who spins and kicks her in the cheek, knocking her to the ground before landing on his feet."Yeah, don't worry," Robin tells you, his eyes not leaving Rose, who rubs her cheek and picks up her staff. Robin readies his staff, and the two of them charge at one another, swinging their weapons at one another. The staves clash as the two pass each-other, which the tip of each breaking after a few seconds. Robin and Rose look at their weapons, then laugh, turning toward one another and shaking hands."Good fight, as always," Robin tells her with a smile."You too," Rose replies. "Really, though, you're just lucky I didn't go all out.""I was about to say the same thing to you," Robin jabs playfully.The two walk out of the sparring area, approaching you. Relief washes over Robin's face, so you're guessing you look much, much better than the last time he saw you. "Well, looks like somebody took a nap," Rose comments. "Think you're in good enough shape to spar?">A. "Alright, sounds fun.">>B. "I wouldn't stand a chance against you.">>C. "Are you still in good enough condition to spar after that last fight?">D.

>>2219422Might be best not to use our powers for now, given, you know, the events of one nap ago.
>>2219391>>2219401This wins, gotta take the dogs out, will update when I get back
>>2219428>>2219391"I wouldn't stand a chance against you," you admit to Rose."Not standing a chance never stops you from sparring against me," Robin jokes."I wasn't finished," you inform your leader before looking back to Rose. "I wouldn't stand a chance against you, but it sounds fun."Rose smiles at that. "Alright, then. I'll go easier on you than I did on bird-brain over there. Unless you're an even bigger masochist than you seem like."You aren't completely sure if she's joking with you or not. She steps back into the ring, and you follow along, moving to stand across from her. Robin sticks around, either as a referee or because he wants to see how badly Rose puts you through the ringer. Either way, you at least trust him to stop her from causing you permanent damage.You've seen Rose fight. She's relentless, and quick to adapt to her enemies. If you want to last more than three seconds in this match, you're going to have to use your head.>A. Run in and attack her with all you've got.

>>2219559>A. Run in and attack her with all you've got. Maybe your prior training will kick in and you'll catch her by surprise
>>2219567>>2219571Not wanting to reveal your powers just yet, and not trusting the outcome of rushing in blindly to be positive, you instead decide to start by fighting on the defensive. You feel some trepidation about this approach after seeing how this girl was able to break through Robin's attempts at defense, but ultimately decide that it's your best course of action right now.Rose smirks as you take a defensive stance, not wasting any time in making her move. She dashes across the ring, leaping into the air and descending with a strong kick. You cross your arms in front of your body, managing to block the kick, but not managing to stop from being pushed back. Rose is on you again right away, and you find yourself giving ground far too quickly as you struggle to fend off or dodge her furious strikes. Rose soon lands a kick in your gut that causes your body to curl, and brings her knee right up into your jaw as you begin to hunch, knocking you onto your back. Before you can sit up, or really even recover from the hit, Rose places her foot on your chest, pinning you to the ground. She smirks down at you, clearly enjoying this. She probably expects you to give up right now.But, you're a competitive guy, you don't feel like giving up so easily.>A. Psychic Punch her and get back up>B. Psychic Shove her and get back up>C. Try teleporting to the other side of the ring>>D. Go on the attack with a mix of physical and psychic attacks>>E. Keep on the defensive, but add barriers into your defense, and throw Psychic Punches as counters>/>>F. Write-in

>>2219678>FTeleport behind her and go on the offensive
>>2219678>ECome on psychic kung fu. Because we are GOING to get counterpunched if we're overly aggressive.
>>2219701nothin personnel kid
>>2219678>B. Psychic Shove her and get back up>>E. Keep on the defensive, but add barriers into your defense, and throw Psychic Punches as countersI think we're gonna have to take a nap immediately afterward this match...
>>2219717Adding >B to mine (>E) because defending from prone is kinda pointless unless we learn psychic judo instead.
>>2219714I'm trying to minimize the use of psychic powers and gain maximum tactical advantage from it.Rely on physical defense and offense mostly, but with tp giving us a surprise attack.
>>2219723I agree with your strategy, but teleporting is something we haven't practiced at all. Its very draining. Our barriers and punches are our most practiced powers, and playing defensive and counter-punching minimizes our effort expended.
>>2219678>B. Psychic Shove her and get back up>D. Go on the attack with a mix of physical and psychic attacks
>>2219740Alright, you've got no choice. With a Psychic Shove, you're able to get the girl off of you and scramble back to your feet. You don't wait for her to make the next move, instead deciding to try your hand at attacking her. Starting with a punch that she catches easily, you follow with a Psychic Punch to the face that takes her by surprise, and leaves an opening for you to kick her in the stomach, pushing her back. As she starts toward you again, you throw another Psychic Punch at her face, then rush in and throw a real one. Rose sidesteps, grabs your arm, and twists it behind your back. You quickly throw another punch at her face, and while it connects, she does not release you.Okay, girl's tough, and you're in a bad position. You wonder if she's holding back as much as she said she would, or if she's just that good. Either way, you are not in a good position.>A. Focus and put more power into your Psychic Punches>B. Get angry and put more power into your Psychic Punches>C. Try teleporting away>D. Surrender>/>>E. Write-in
>>2219796>>A. Focus and aim for soft spots like her stomach, nose, liver
>>2219796>C. Try teleporting awayIf I remember right the distance we 'port affects how strenuous it is? Try to teleport right behind her.
>>2219796>E. Separate yourselves with a barrier.
>>2219796>>C. Try teleporting awayThen try to suplex her.
>>2219796>/>>E. stomp her foot then kick her knee out
>>2219796>C. Try teleporting awaySpecifically could we teleport above her and like use an axe kick?
>>2219818You could try that
>>2219796I'll change my vote here >>2219806to trying to teleport above her as suggested here >>2219818We might fuck it up but whatever, it's practice.
>>2219729Fair point actually, but we managed to do quite a few teleports the first time we tested it, so one shouldn't hurt us.
>>2219876We can probably get away with one, but that fatigue stacks up very fast.
>>2219880It'd be useful to get a general sense of how Pete's doing.Like"You're feeling *normal*""Your body is *uninjured*"
>>2219818>>2219839Time to switch things up a bit. You focus your mind on the proper emotion, and teleport. Your hope is to teleport into the air right above Rose, and do an axe kick as you fall. It goes anything but how you expected, though.You do manage to teleport into the air, but when you look down, Rose is gone, and you can still feel your arm being twisted behind your back. She teleported with you. Luckily, the surprise of suddenly being up in the air does allow you to free your arm. However, she recovers from her shock quickly and kicks you in the back, causing you to be sprawled out on your stomach when you hit the ground. You don't see Rose land, but when you start to push yourself back up, you feel something press between your shoulder blades, and are pushed back into the ground.>A. Give up.>B. Focus your mind and put more power into your attacks. Psychic Punch her until she gets off of you, then maybe Psychic Punch some more>C. Get angry and Psychic Punch her off you, then maybe Psychic Punch her some more>D. Psychic Shove her off you>/>>E. Write-in

>>2219898>D. Psychic Shove her off youHell, aim for her legs maybe?
>>2219898>>/>>E. Write-inPut all energy we have left into crushing her with a barrier
>>2219898I like this idea from previously >>2219808But I feel like it's time to give up before we get another mind-raping>A. Give up.
>>2219898>D.This is the last exchange I'm willing to do. I'm worried about pushing too far.
>>2219898Can we maybe psychic push the floor to flip her off and get us on our feet?
>>2219906You remember that this is sparring, right?
>>2219910Hmm...you could give that a go. Like, giving an extra strong push to get yourself up?
>>2219898People seem desperate but psychic punches aren't enough anymore. She know about that>Put all energy we have left into crushing her with a barrier
>>2219907You know what, switching to>A.Lets not push it. We had to fight Blood like, 4 hours ago.
>>2219898>>A. Give up.We we're never gonna win and I'm just happy we got our hits in
>>2219910>>2219911She'll be prepared for a shove since we already did that before. Might as well experiment with our barriers
>>2219921>>2219920>>2219907I think A wins, unless I've miscounted.
>>2219898>give upHonestly not surprised with the direction of how the teleporting works
>>2219907"I give up," you relent, not seeing any way to continue this fight without straining your mind past its limit or turning it into something serious. Rose gets off your back, and you push yourself back up, feeling sore from the various hits she landed. She looks a bit marked up herself, but you aren't sure if that's from you or Robin."You had some nice tricks," she compliments. "But, you need practice.""Well, I'd say he's had enough for one day," Robin comments, approaching the two of you. "What do you say we go have some dinner?"Dinner passes pleasantly, with Cyborg making ribs, Robin making salad, Starfire making glorrk, and Beast Boy making various tofu-based products. The rest of the night is spent talking, playing video games, watching some TV. Finally, Rose says goodbye to everyone and departs, and one by one, you and the rest of your team go to sleep.The next day has you feeling refreshed, though still a little sore from what happened with Rose. Looking out your window, you see that it's a bright, sunny day. You can already smell bacon and waffles from the kitchen, and you hope that Cyborg's made a enough for everybody. Your stomach is rumbling.He has indeed prepared enough to go around, and after a pleasant breakfast, the team begins to split up and do their own things. Cyborg heads to the garage to work on the T-Car, Raven and Starfire go off to meditate, Robin and Beast Boy sit down to play videogames, and you...>A. Ask Cyborg if you can help him in the garage>B. Ask Raven and Starfire if you can join them>C. Ask Robin and Beast Boy if you can join them>D. Go for a walk around the island>E. Go for a walk in the city>F. Go to the training room>/>>G. Write-in
>>2220022>>A. Ask Cyborg if you can help him in the garagelets help a friend and learn too
>>2220022>E. Go for a walk in the cityMaybe see if we can meet other people beyond titans? Or find interesting places dunno
>>2220022>A. Ask Cyborg if you can help him in the garageHaven't hung out with Cyborg in a while. Maybe we can drive the T-Car someday.
>>2220032"Hey, Cyborg," you call to your friend. "Can I help you in the garage?"Cyborg stops, and looks at you. He seems hesitant, though you aren't sure why. Ultimately, he seems to shake off whatever worries or doubts he was having, and nods at you."Sure, come on.">To be continuedThat's where we'll stop for tonight. I know it was brief, but I hope you all had fun.
