Nakamura Eiji looks at you, torn. “I’m sorry, Yamada-san. But it was me all along.”I AM REBORN IN A HAREM ROMCOM, BUT I'M ONLY A MOB CHARACTER?! 8By: BSGTwitter: https://twitter.com/bisugoQMArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=I+Am+Reborn+in+a+Harem+RomCom%2C+but+I%27m+Only+A+Mob+Character%3F%21
The cold afternoon wind blows, covering the few seconds of silence after the revelation.“...Nakamura-san, what do you…?” Your spine turns to ice.He grimaces, and shakes his head. “It was me, Yamada-san. It’s all my fault. I egged the others on to turn against you.”“But...why?”He doesn’t reply.“Eiji-kun--”“Please stay where you are, Kobayashi-san.” You hear the halting of footsteps of the two girls behind you. “I know you’ve been keeping me in the dark all this time. Now I need to speak with Yamada-san, and take my responsibility as a man.”“B-But…!”You-->Swing at Nakamura Eiji>Forgive him>You’re lying>Ask for his help in stopping all this>Write in
>>2238266>>Ask for his help in stopping all thisbut before that:>Why?
>>2238277Yeah, I second this.
>>2238266>Explain yourself, Nakamura.
>>2238266“...Why are you doing this to me, Nakamura-san?”He remains silent.“Did I do you, or your friends, any wrong? Did I do anything to deserve this?”He shakes his head.“No one deserves any of this. I’m sorry. This is all my fault. Please feel free to pour all of your anger on me.”You hesitate for a moment. And then…You sigh.“Nakamura-san, all I really want is your help in all of this. I just want all of this to stop.”“Hang on!”You hear Kobayashi stomping towards you.“Yamada-kun, this is absurd. He’s obviously lying, he’s got nothing to do with all this! There’s no need to involve him any further.”“Then how does he know about what's been happening?”“I…” Kobayashi falters for a bit. “I don’t know either. But you know as well as I do that it’s impossible Eiji-kun knows all of this. Right?”>You’re right. Eiji is innocent. Do not involve him.>You’re wrong. Eiji is guilty. I want him to atone.>We need all the help we can get>Write in
>>2238327>We need all the help we can getRight?
>>2238327>It doesn't matter whether he's guilty or not. He's involved, and we need all the help we can get.Also>He's my friend
>>2238327>You get one dick kick for your satisfaction. But I got more important shit to deal with, and I need my dumbass friends help.>You get one minuet to take a breath.Kick before time is up.
>>2238336>>2238344Supporting. But he's gonna have to sit down and give a full confession after this is over. We deserve it.
>>2238327“It doesn’t matter whether he’s guilty or not right now. What matters is he’s now involved in all of this. And we could use all the help we could get.”“But--”“Kobayashi.” The silver haired girl turns around to see the class rep with a hand on her shoulder.“Class rep…”“Ken-kun’s right. Whether we like it or not, it seems Eiji is now tied up in all of this. And if he is willing to be an ally, then the more the better, right?”Kobayashi Mariko looks at you. Her intense gaze bores into your skin.“...Class rep, you know Eiji-kun better than I do.” She hisses through gritted teeth. “But I do know the type of person that he is. And the way things are going, he’s gonna get hurt. Do you want that?”“Of course not.”“And yet you want to involve him more in this. I’m sorry. But I won’t let that happen.”She marches away from the both of you, and grabs Nakamura by the hand.“K-Kobayashi-san? What are you--wha!”The girl drags away the dumbfounded boy back into the stairwell.>Give chase.>Let them leave.
>>2238402>>Give chase.GET BACK HERE YOU UPPITY THOT.
>>2238402>Give chaseI agree with >>2238405 . You don't get a say in this, woman! He's vital to us not having to do bad things to keep ourselves and those close to us alive!
>>2238402>"OH HELL NO, YOU PULLING THIS SHIT NOW!"
>>2238402You and the class rep look at each other. Then you both give chase.“Kobayashi-san, wait!”“Oi, Kobayashi Mariko!”Kobayashi isn’t running, but her march is still rapid, even with Nakamura Eiji in tow. The guy isn’t resisting at all, maybe from the shock of the sudden skin contact that happened.Kobayashi opens the door, and you expect her to dash down…But instead she stops in her tracks. The both of you catch up easily now.Kobayashi is standing in the doorway. Nakamura Eiji is still locked in Kobayashi’s grasp, but now he looks guilt-stricken.You and the class rep peek through the door.”...Rinko-chan?”The kouhai is sitting on the ground behind the door, crying.“Senpai...I’m sorry...it’s all my fault…”>cont’d
>>2238459I CALLED IT, I FUCKING CALLED IT, SHIT KID IS THE ONE THAT DID IT!
>>2238459It took a while for Rinko-chan to calm down. Kobayashi rubbed the crying girl’s back, while Nakamura Eiji is whispering some things towards her. But Rinko-chan continued to sob.You and Ryou stand some distance away from them, waiting for her to calm down.“Yamada-senpai…” Rinko-chan is still sniffling, but eventually the two calm her down enough to get her talking normally.“I-It’s all my fault...Senpai did nothing wrong, it was all my fault...I was feeling miserable, you see? And Rinko-chan doesn’t have many friends. She’s too scared to tell Ryou-chan and Mariko-chan. So I told Senpai, but then Senpai said he’s going to take responsibility for me, and then...and then…!”She goes back into a crying fit again.“What exactly did you do, Rinko-chan?” the class rep gently prods.“I-I-It’s...I knew what was happening the following day, after Yamada-senpai visited. They were talking about Yamada-senpai, saying bad things. I could have stopped it...but instead...I…I even added to saying the bad things...and encouraging mean stuff...and...and...!”“Hush, hush, it’s okay now,” says Kobayashi.“Mariko-chaaaaan! Uwaaaaaah! I'm so sorry!”Tears burst from the young kouhai as she embraces the open arms of the ojou. She has surprisingly high maternal sense.Eiji stands up from beside her and approaches you with a solemn expression.“...Sorry about lying to you, Yamada-san.”“Not at all. You had no idea, right?”He shakes his head. “I’m your friend, as well as Rinko-chan’s senpai. I do need to take responsibility for what happened. I’m just sorry for not telling you the whole truth from the get-go.”You nod.“So, Yamada-san, what do you plan to do now?”>Let’s all work together to stop all this>I’ve had quite enough with you and your circle>Write in
>>2238494>Let’s all work together to stop all this
>>2238494>>Let’s all work together to stop all thisSurely the harem has more pull than The Collective.....Right?
>>2238494>>Let’s all work together to stop all this
>>2238494“It’s obvious isn’t it?” You step forward, and the four of them look at you. Having the gaze of the four most powerful beings in this world is enough for you to shake in your knees, but you continue.“Rinko-chan...thanks for telling me the truth. It’s unfortunate what has happened, but what’s done is done. Now, we should take steps in going forward.“I’m really sorry for being a bother to you guys. This all began since I intruded into your place. And I’m sorry, but it looks like I’m going to be a bother for a bit longer.“I need your help. To be honest, I’m a nobody. No one will listen to the words of an ass-kisser. But maybe they’ll listen to you guys. I have a feeling that if we all work together, we could stop all this. I’m sorry for being selfish…”You bow down.“But will you please help me?”Silence. Then, you see two pairs of feet approach you.“You don’t need to bow down, Yamada-san.” Eiji touches you in the shoulder and helps you up. “Of course we’ll help you. But there’s just some things I want to correct.”He smiles. “You’re not nobody. Certainly not a bother, either. You were never intruding into anything. We’re friends, man. You’re always welcome in our circle.”You catch Ryou smiling, while Rinko-chan and Kobayashi has complicated expressions on.>Sure thing, please include me in your circle.>I’ll pass. I’m pretty content with the way things are.
>>2238548>>Sure thing, please include me in your circle.Are we gonna become a side character?Will we suffer [ERASURE]?
>>2238548>Sure thing, please include me in your circle.Fuck, I would say no, but at this point we have to be here in order to not worry about being used as a meat shield.
>>2238548>I’ll pass. I’m pretty content with the way things are.This has created enough problems for us already.Also,>Rinko-chan has to apologize to Hanazawa.Mayumi was probably scared to death. She also had to bail us with her own money.
>>2238558Screw it, forget my vote, switching to this.
So that's 2-1 in favor of "pass"Any other votes?
>>2238548>I’ll pass. I’m pretty content with the way things are.At least until things cool off.
>>2238589>Sure thing, please include me in your circle.
>>2238548I'd still like to hang out with you even if i'm not in your circle
Alright, pass wins.>Writing.
>>2238548You smile. “I’ll pass. I like the way things are now.”Eiji nods. “If you say so.” He faces the others. “Now let’s start planning on how to help Yamada-san!”-------The five of you leave the rooftop in different intervals so as not to arouse suspicion. Despite the alliance being formed, it was agreed that the timing is the most important thing to get down in all of this. Being discovered might mean not only a worse time for you, but maybe even the collective turning against Eiji and the others.It was Kobayashi who left first, followed by Rinko-chan.“This is gonna be a pain…”Ryou is scratching her head, since she’s the next one out. Being suspended means she shouldn’t be here in the first place. Before she heads out, though, she looks at you.“Hey, Ken-kun?”“Yeah?”“Are you going to work today?”>Yeah, see you there.>No, make up an excuse.>Write in
>>2238621>Yeah, see you there
>>2238621>Yeah, see you there.I'm not letting this interrupt my making money. Even past this whole issue, I do need things.
>>2238621>Yeah, see you there.
>>2238621“Yeah, I’ll be there.”“Alright. See you later, Ken-kun. Eiji.”Both of you wave as she disappears down the stairs. A couple moments of silence go between the two of you.“Yamada-san.”“Yes?”“What do you know about Ryou?”“...I don’t really understand your question, Nakamura-san.”He pockets his hands and starts kicking at the ground.“...I believe I’ve accrued quite the reputation for being a dense guy. But it doesn’t really help if people keep stuff from me, right?”You stay silent.“Just the other day...Ryou was feeling down again. Everyone else seems to know what’s going on except for me. But she won’t tell me either.”He sighs. “It’s kinda frustrating, that’s all.”He glances at you. “Do you know something about Ryou, Yamada-san?”>Tell him everything about the ‘man-stealer.’>Lie. You’re in a mission to help Ryou win, and that info might harm her.>I do know what’s going on, but if Ryou isn’t ready to say it, then now might not be the time>Write in
>>2238671>I do know what’s going on, but if Ryou isn’t ready to say it, then now might not be the time>Ryou is a friend and I want to help her get better
>>2238671>"Preface this with if she didn't want you to know, its her business. But Tell him everything about the ‘man-stealer.’"
>>2238671>I do know what’s going on, but if Ryou isn’t ready to say it, then now might not be the time
>>2238671sorry about this, but irl stuff has come up and we need to stop here :( id also like to apologize for the current inconsistent state of the runs. things are hectic in my place since the beginning of the year :P as much as id like to do daily 6 hour runs, there have been a lot of happenings in my end. the aim is to establish a predictable run schedule by the end of this month :)im also cooking up something nice for the quest. ill try to post some of the results by next week.but for now, we'll continue tomorrow :) ill post in the twitter an hour before, stay tuned!TO BE CONT'D
>>2238760Thanks for running bsg we'll be waiting
>>2238760Is alright.Be safe and other things of goodness.
>>2238760>im also cooking up something nice for the questTime for some more strange pastebin links
dang, i missed it, ah well everything seems to be progressing nominally anyway.I feel like it would've been interesting to be in the circle finally but I understand not wanting to go in on it, especially after this whole shitstorm that occurred, should be interesting to see what happens from this point on.
You know, I just realized; if Rinko was the one who set us up with more rumors and shit, it wouldn't surprise me if she was the one who fucked over Class Rep too. It would make sense, considering they're competing for Eiji's affection. It probably didn't work because of how dense he was, which caused her to back off from that strategy, but not until after the damage was done.She might've been crying to put in an act, or more unlikely, out of actual guilt. Didn't think she'd go as far to try and redirect the blame to Eiji, though the guy probably took that duty on for himself. Rinko probably has a lot of connections, being the young mastermind that she is. We should be sure to use them. Of course, there's also the possibility that she's just a normal kouhai who saw an opportunity to get rid of a rival and a meddlesome intruder. Though iirc, she was the one who said some creepy shit that was borderline yandere, so I don't know about that. Regardless, we should probably be careful around her.
>>2239743Anon, I don't think any of the girls have acted remotely yandere yet (aside from maybe Ryou in one instance or another with that whole "man stealer" schtick she's got going and all). You do raise a viable point, though. Whoever is manipulating the events backstage has proven that they aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. It might be a good idea to keep an eye out for things that might give us a hand in this little war--chains, sports equipment, the odd wood chipper in the schoolyard or furnace in the basement. Art supplies, bottles of sedative--anything easily swipable, really.
>>2239031>She might've been crying to put in an actI thought so as well, at the beginning, but thinking about it, she didn't have to tell Eiji anything. The only reason for her to tell him was if she was feeling guilty.
By the way, we are going for the [True Ending], right? I'm just asking because I haven't seen it mentioned in a while. If I remember right, our brother told us that in order to get the [True Ending] we need to achieve [Happiness] for every character. Does that include mobs?Well either way, I think we should go for it. Obviously right now getting The Collective off our back takes precedent, but let's keep [True Ending] in the back of our minds.
>>2240285It explicitly doesn't include Mobs. Or us, for that matter.
>>2238671>>I do know what’s going on, but if Ryou isn’t ready to say it, then now might not be the time
>>2240309>thingsFuck that. We're getting the [True Ending], and we're getting [Happiness] for ourselves while we're at it.That, or we'll die trying.

>>2240641Reporting for duty, and if we're doing the same vote. >>2238695I vote for this write inThe dude NEEDS information, but he doesn't need everything until such a time when ryou is comfortable telling him her problems.
>>2238671“I do know what’s going on, but if Ryou isn’t ready to say it, then now might not be the time.” You reply. “I’m her friend too, Nakamura-san. I want her to get better as well.”He smiles and nods. However, you could still sense a doubt behind those eyes.“I might be a dense guy, but please don’t think I’m dumb. I don’t know why, but somehow I feel like the girls are hiding a lot of stuff from me. I wouldn’t even know what’s happening to you, if not for all the bandages you have, and if Rinko-chan didn’t…” He shakes his head. He seems a bit frustrated.>Don’t worry, I won’t keep things hidden from you>Reassure him for now, but don’t promise anything>Maybe they don’t tell you things because of your twisted sense of justice?>Write in
>>2240775Don’t worry, I won’t keep things hidden from youBut also >Maybe they don’t tell you things because of your twisted sense of justice?We gotta be a bro about things.
>>2240775>I believe that sometimes they hide things from you because they're afraid you'll get into trouble on their behalf. I know you wouldn't think of it like any hazzle, but they'd still feel guilty for burdening you with something they think they should be able to shoulder themselves. Your friends really care a lot about you.
>>2240775>Don’t worry, I won’t keep things hidden from you
>>2240786Basically this >Don’t worry, I won’t keep things hidden from youPlus >Maybe they don’t tell you things because of your twisted sense of justice?
>>2240775>Don’t worry, I won’t keep things hidden from you>Maybe they don’t tell you things because of your twisted sense of justice?
>>2240775>Have you ever hidden things from someone to protect them, Eiji? It's something I've done before, and it's an understandable approach. Because you care about them, you don't want them to suffer, even if it means suffering it by yourself.
>>2240786>>2240786But we know that's not why they keep things hidden from him. We shouldn't mislead him. My vote is for>Reassure him for now.We can't tell him about the other girls' love, or about Ryou's manstealer title. But we can tell him that we're here for him and no one is hiding anything harmful to Eiji.
>>2240775“Don’t worry, Nakamura-san. I won’t be keeping things from you.”He nods. “Thanks. I’m really grateful for that.”You fake limp towards the stairwell. “I guess it’s my time to leave.”“Alright.”But before you exit, a thought comes into your head. “Nakamura-san.”“Yes?”“Have you ever considered -why- the girls are keeping things from you, if your assumption is even correct in the first place?”He stays silent.“This is just my opinion,” you continue. “But maybe it’s because they know how you really are Nakamura-san. That you’re the type to dive into the problem, sacrificing yourself if it means you save their well-being.“Nakamura-san...that’s a twisted sense of justice.“They keep things from you because they don’t want to hurt you. What would hurting yourself benefit them? Do you think you could save everyone if you sacrifice yourself? I know you have the best intentions but...that is incredibly idealistic of you.”He seems to struggle for a bit, but comes back at you determined. “...And what’s wrong with that? What’s wrong in trying to save everyone? It may be idealistic, but if there’s a possibility...why shouldn’t I give it my all?”You pause at the surprising answer from Nakamura Eiji. You chuckle.“Eh? Did I say something funny?”“Nothing, nothing. Hm, to be honest, I don’t have an answer for what you just said right now. Maybe I’m just jaded.”“Jaded?”You smile. You feel the weight of 38 years of idealism on your shoulders. You shrug, and limp down the stairs.>cont’d
>>2240848>38WHERE'S OUR WIZARD POWER'S, REEEEEEEE! !!!!
>>2240848Early evening. The chief takes one look at you before waving away his hand.“Go home, Yamada. You’re in no state to work.”“But chief--”“No buts! You think you could peel a potato with half of your face covered in gauze?!”“I could still clean u--”“Oh? Ohhh?! So you’d like to limp your way out there in front of the customers and start mopping?! Are you outta your mind?!”Despite the chief being only half your height, you feel yourself shrinking and shrinking with every passing second. The employees around you aren’t even looking at you. You think it’s partly because of rush hour, and mostly because this is a common occurrence.“You better make your way out right now, or I’ll finish the job on the other side of your face!”>Chief, is there really no other way? I need the cash…>Get out before things get too rowdy>Ask for help from Ryou
>>2240875>Chief, is there really no other way? I need the cash…We really do need that cash
>>2240875>tell him we're faking, this gauze ain't real
>>2240875>Get out before things get too rowdyLet's just accept it and take a day to cool down, or mabe even just excercise at home
>>2240884What do we need it for again?
>>2240875>Chief, is there really no other way? I need the cash…
>>2240898A computer. Anything that could come up. We are nearly broke at the moment.
>>2240898New phone and laptop Plus any other expenses this hell throws our way
>>2240875“Chief, is there really no other way? I really need the cash…”He looks you up and down, and then sighs.“Do you have a curfew?”“Eh? Not really, chief.”“Then, if you really want to be paid, you could clean up after dinner rush is over. Just stay in the employees room for now and do your homework or whatever. That fine?”“Of course chief.”“Then call your parents and get out of the kitchen,” he says as he turns away. “You’re getting in the way, Yamada.”You nod, and head over to the employees room. You really need to save up for that computer, or at least have enough to take Hanazawa out on a date…-------With dinner rush ending, you head out to the front and start earning your keep.Though some of the customers raise their eyebrows at the sight of your bandages and limp, none of them speak up or complain. Maybe they notice just how hard you are working, cleaning tables, carrying plates, mopping the floor.You didn’t even notice the time until someone tapped you on the shoulder. You turn around to see a familiar lavender color.“Ryou.”“Good job out here.”“You too.”“Chief says you’re free to go since it’s getting late. You haven’t eaten either right?”“No.”She smiles. “Let’s eat together then? Chief says dinner’s on the house.”>No problem.>Make up an excuse to leave.
>>2240959>No problem.We do need to talk with her about what happened now that there has been time to cool off, i think we should suggest she tells Eiji about her past as well
>>2240959>no problem Just sit kind of away from her.
>>2240959You smile. “No problem.”You and Ryou take a seat on the cornermost booth. Though you have changed out of your uniforms, you’re recognizable as you are right now.You both order a meal and wait in silence. She stares out the window while you observe her. Somehow…“Hey Ken-kun. I’ve never apologized to you properly about what happened before.”...she seems normal.You sigh out. “What *did* happen back then, class rep?”Ryou takes a shaky breath. “I’m sorry.” She looks at you with sincere repentance in her eyes. “It’s...well, I think I just got carried away, that’s all. I don’t really know myself to be honest…”She shakes her head. “That’s not a valid excuse though. I’m sorry Yamada-kun. Because of my actions I might have destroyed not only our friendship, but also mine and Hanazawa’s. It was never my intention to...steal you away.” She smiles, pained. “Now you know why they call me that. I’d understand if you hate me now. I’m...just a moron, aren’t I?”>I don’t hate you.>I’m sorry but we can no longer be friends.>Write in
>>2241063>I don’t hate you.
>>2241063>>I don’t hate you.
>>2241063>I don't hate you, but let's set some limitations, ok?We definitely want to be her friend, but BOUNDARIES !
>>2241063>I can't speak on Mayumi's behalf, but I for one don't hate you. I promised to help you and I won't go back on that promise.
>>2241091This seems reasonable Support
>>2241063“I don’t hate you,” You reply. “I’m still your friend class rep. I promised to help you, and I won’t back down on that promise now.”Sure, the promised help you had with Ryou was with her conquest of Eiji. But you also promised to yourself that you’ll help the ‘man-stealer’ part of her. And you won’t back down until she, as well as the others, achieve [Happiness].That’s the least friends should do for each other, right?You laugh. “Though, you -are- a bit of an idiot though.”Ryou snorts. “Ken-kuuuun...that’s a low blow…”Chuckling, you sigh out in relief. At least your friendship is still intact for now.“Oho? What’s this?”A shadow covers the two of you. You look to see the familiar crimson red hair of a certain person. You feel Ryou tense up across from you.“I didn't mean to interrupt, but you are aware, Yama-chan, that I’m still under contract of a certain ‘girlfriend’ of yours?” Nakahara Fumi sneers.>cont’d
>>2241139Nakahara Fumi plops down beside you, and leans back on the couch, with her feet on the table.“What are you doing here, Fumi?” Ryou, with clenched fists and gritted teeth, glares at the delinquent girl.“I could do whatever I want, since I am a free citizen of Japan, no? What, fallen in love with your class rep powers so much that you think you could order me around?”“Don’t spin my words. You know what I’m asking you.”Nakahara smirks. “Don’t get cocky. I’m not here for you.” She turns her neck and leans on your shoulder. “I’m here for Yama-chan.”“Wha--?”“You think you’re actually being sneaky going to school like that? If the teachers didn’t already like you, they would’ve called you out after they saw you snooping around like that.”Ryou stays silent. Nakahara continues.“So you go to the rooftop. And for some reason, so did the whole gang. Kobayashi Mariko, Nakamura Eiji.” Nakahara smiles, one oozing with mischievousness. “And a crying Fujimura Rinko. As if guilt stricken, or something?”Ryou slams on the table. “You knew?!”“Unlike you class rep, my jurisdiction goes beyond the borders of the classroom.”“And you didn’t stop her?!”“Hey,” Nakahara snuggles closer to you, smiling. “If it makes this little city shit’s life more miserable, who am I to stop it?”The class rep is fuming. “Let go of Ken-kun.”“Nah. I wanna hear something from him first.”She faces you, her body still huddled up to you. “Hey, hey. Aren’t they just a despicable set of girls? Especially that Rinko girl! If you only heard about the trash she talked about you, oh boy…”>Stop that. I’ve yet to hear her side of the story.>To be honest, I don’t think that girl ever liked me…>Rinko-chan did nothing wrong.>Write in
>>2241184>To be honest, I don’t think that girl ever liked me… but that still doesn't change the fact that we have to stop The Collective… or I might actually die! (say that last part as if it was a joke)
>>2241184>>To be honest, I don’t think that girl ever liked me…
>>2241184>I honestly don't care what she said about me, I only want the students to get off my back.
>>2241184>I've already forgiven her, Nakahara. Everyone deserves a second chance. People make mistakes, and poor choices. That shouldn't damn them forever.
>>2241200>support Fucking yandere
>>2241200>>2241200>support Add, I gave you the benefit of a doubt.
>>2241184>"To be honest, I don't think she ever liked me...but that's in the past and I've already forgiven her."Think we could get away with calling her Fumi or that's a beating?
>To be honest, I don't think that girl ever liked me...>I've already forgiven herWriting.
>>2241184“To be honest, I don’t think that girl ever liked me…”Nakahara smiles. “Right? That’s why--”“But I’ve already forgiven her.”“...Eh?”“Look, what’s happened to me so far hasn’t been the greatest, yes. And of course, Rinko-chan adding to all of that didn’t exactly help.”“Yes, that’s why--”“But it would be unfair if I blame everything that has happened so far to her alone. It won’t be right to condemn her, when she’s only trying to protect what she feels was an intruder. Of course she’ll be defensive right? So I can’t blame her wholly. Part of the blame is on me.”Ryou is smiling. “Ken-kun…” She seems genuinely overjoyed from your words.Nakahara on the other hand…“...What the hell is that?”“What do you mean, Nakahara?”“This girl has been encouraging the attacks on you on her grade level! One that your friends consider to be their friends! And now you’re protecting her?!”“Nakahara…”“Listen to me, Yamada. I came for you today for one thing. I don’t know if you’re just changing the tone of your voice cause the fuckin’ class rep is around you fuckin’ gomasuri, so I’ll come at you straight.“I know you’re mad. I know you’re frustrated at all this. If it wasn’t for your girlfriend being there at the right time, there’d be nothing under that gauze right now. You would have -wished- that you were dead.“Join me, Yamada. Let’s crush everyone who goes against us together. You’ve gone toe to toe with me already, so I know, if we team up, no one will call you a kiss ass again.”>Accept her proposal>Refuse her proposal
>>2241324>"Why are you making this offer to me now? When I asked you to be my ally before, you seemed pretty adamant that it wasn't worth it to you... What changed?"
>>2241324>Refuse her proposal
>>2241324>Refuse her proposal>Counter-propose for her to join you instead. Violence needn't be the resolution here. We can resolve these issues in a different way than that.
>>2241324>>2241341>>2241346 I want to support asking this in addition to the refusal
>>2241341This. I don't want to outright confuse her, she may still be valuable if shit goes south.
>>2241324“Let me ask you something, Nakahara. Last time it was me asking to be allies with you, and you refused me. What changed your mind?”She stays silent.“Did you think I would break because of what they’d do to me? That I would beg for your mercy and turn to the path of chaos to ‘get even’? No. Nakahara, I don’t think that’s the right way at all. If we fight anger with more anger...do you think two wrongs will make a right? I respect you. But I’m afraid I will have to refuse your proposal.”Nakahara has pushed away from you. She’s glaring at you, with a gaze full of killing intent.“Why...Why….”“I’ll ask you again Nakahara. Do you want to become allies? With your help and influence, surely we could overcome anything the collective will throw at us.”She says nothing. Instead, she spits on the ground.“Fuck off, city shit. Who the fuck do you think you are?”You glance at Ryou. She looks sad as well.“I thought...I thought we were the same...I thought finally...”Nakahara’s voice tapers off, and she shakes her head.“...Ryou.”“...What is it, Fumi?”“Watch this guy’s back 24/7, or I’m going to kill him.”And with those words, she leaves.>cont’d
>>2241407She wants mc D
>>2241411I think you mean "Wcdonalds"
>>2241407Fucks sake, all I wanted to do was ask her what her reasoning was, not belittle her and tell her to buzz off.
>>2241424Same, seems the railroad strikes again.
>>2241424>>2241437'refusing her proposal' means angering her either way
>>2241446My write-in wasn't refusing her proposal.
>>2241407“Well, that kind of put a damper on our dinner, huh?”Ryou tries to cheer the mood up while you are both walking home together. You try to laugh along, but it’s obvious that both of you are only half-heartedly doing so.The road itself is illuminated well by the streetlamps, yet Ryou keeps on glancing on the shadowy parts of the street.“What is it, Ryou? Worried that Nakahara’s threat is real?”“As far as I know, Fumi has never killed anyone, but you just don’t know with her…”Upon reaching a certain junction on the road though, Ryou’s steps slow down. When you glance back at her, she looks torn. Looks like this is her stop.“Don’t worry about me class rep. I could handle myself. I’m actually more worried about you.”“You don’t need to, my house is near here already.” She sighs. “Are you sure you’re gonna be alright?”You laugh. “Pretty sure.”“Alright then. Next time I see you, it should be at school already!”She turns around, but before leaving, she turns back as if remembering something.“By the way, Ken-kun. You should get those wounds sorted out. You should probably not come to school on Monday.”“Eh? I’m sure I’ll be fine by then--”“Ken-kun, you're not listening to me.”“You shouldn't come to school on Monday.”(TO BE CONT’D)
>>2241488Well that's ominous.Thanks for the run, BSG.
>>2241459fair enough. but we didn't 'belittle her and tell her to buzz off' neither :) i understand that im not the best at handling write ins, but its literally either a deny proposal or accept proposal choice. we could easily just ban write ins when theyre not asked, but i really do appreciate your inputs.couldnt you at least meet me halfway on this one? since, tho im just assuming, you were gonna refuse her in the end anyway?>>2241498thanks mate, glad you enjoyed it :) ill try to run tomorrow again, at around, say, 21:00 UTC?I'll post on the twitter an hour before running as well :D
>>2241488>>2241507Thanks for the run, BSG.Really looking forward to the next one.Honestly I feel bad for rejecting Nakahara but following her path wouldn't be a good decision.
>>2241515You know, if she had asked us 2 sessions ago we probably would have said yes based on the sentiment in the thread.
>>2241602That was just a faggot edge lord namefag, seriously, the guy's name began with a Z, how did anyone actually take him seriously! !?!!!
>>2241602Pretty much yeah
>>2241488Is this the "some of you guys are alright" situation?Should we warn Hanazawa?
Seems like Nakahara has a lot of hate and loneliness to work through, hopefully we can sort it out after this mess we find ourselves in.As for not coming to school on Monday, that's a pretty odd request from Class Rep, idk if we should follow through or not. But if we do, I think we can use it as a day to get some training in.
>>2241602I don't think a vocal minority would be able to sway the vote her way.
>>2241488>“Ken-kun, you're not listening to me.”>“You shouldn't come to school on Monday.”Does anybody else get the vibe that a school shooting's about to go down? This really felt like one of those "Some of you are cool" type messages.
>>2241507No, either make write ins banned or fucking follow through them to the intent of the letter. This wishy washy bullshit when we get one over you is starting piss me off.
>>2241978It was an either or decision and he didn't ask for write-ins, you put up some third option to add and the majority voted no anyway with asking as part of it. Don't be a bitch about it anon, you just look autistic.
>>2241878I want to do what this anon>>2241755said and warn Hanazawa, but we could just cause the collective to hound her too/more than they already are.
>>2241978If you don't like how the QM runs his stuff you don't have to participate and can run your own quest how you want.
>>2242161Actually, Hanazawa is Hikaru's friend so she should warn her on her own if necessary.
>>2241806With her dyed hair I got no idea what she is, but bringing her [Happiness] makes sense because she has worries and sorrows . As she said 'What do YOU know about my situation?!', or something along those lines....By the by...Has... ANYONE mentioned yet how much this shit (Read: Awe-inspiring Quest) resembles fokken 'Angel Beats!'? Plot wise?
>>2252530Angel beats is generic as fuck though.
>>2253511Could've been a great series if the ending hadn't been so rushed.
If this delinquent girl really want to cut ties then i propose something.Give her the last fistfight that we owe her, no bars, no rules cagematch if she want's that.She is probably alone and we gonna be full shonen punching with this girl and after we beat (or hopefully beat)her we gonna ask that question again if she would be willing to be our ally. Not really that we should call her all the time but when the worst fucking scenario comes.I wanted to have Fumi achive [Happiness] too.Also if this is Ken Purgatory then this is all revolves around him. What we know about him is he is a NEET Otaku and probably living alone who has dissapointed parents. And now we have a chance to do what we didn't do when we are teenager so we probably want to achieve something (like winning the sprinting race or win the soccer)If my hunches are correct then we need to learn love that we didnt experience or abandoned when we were a filthy neet shitposter back then.Ken needs to love his parents and in extension Kei, Eiji needs to choose who to love (and probably figure out what is love), Class Rep needs to learn to love herself, Oujo needs to learn how to find love in others (rid that fucking jealousy you bitch girl), Tezuka needs to acknowledge love and not give up, and twintails need to learn what is love you immature brat.Although we already slash one of our objectives and that is to find ourselves a lovelife and that is waifu Mayumi so we are gucci on that front.And oh Fumi could be looking on a love on a battlefiled and mother and father we should at least say we love them.
>>2254415I am fully onboard with everything written here. The name of the game being to retain the status quo fits well with the purgatory theory. It might not be so for anyone else in this world but maybe it's ours, cause we had to have been put here for a reason.
bro did say we could fight instead.which would make sense, fighting and doing stuff outside being the opposite of staying inside like a lazy fuck watching cute girls doing cute shit.
>>2254415Good suggestionActually, fucking great suggestion.
>>2254415this anon knows what's up
Are we dead?
>>2266227silly anon Ken is dead
Where is BSG?
>>2268314He got a Bad End
>>2268307That's literally the premise of the quest
And he promised too that he will not disappear and give this quest a good or bad end dependsWe got bae quest over again
>>2269502>>2269389>>2269229>>2268314Reminder that you are allowed to lose hope only if they are gone for a full month or two.
>>2269532I forgot that he has schedule problems on January hoping it would be better this February
>>2269777its not even a new month yet. calm your tits
