You are a young high school student who is sick and tired of his every day life. Every day for the past year of attending high school you've been praying for something interesting and exciting to happen to you and break up the monotony. You always prayed, wished that your life was like something out of a movie, or a T.V show. You wanted to be popular with the girls, save the world from some kind of dark evil force, or maybe pilot a giant robot against some invading alien army. However wait as you like nothing exciting has happened to a painfully dull and boring person such as yourself. Which is why you're through with waiting. If the excitement won't come to you you'll come to it. Several months ago the school year had just begun, and so you've decided to make a resolution. From now on you're going to live the school year to it's fullest. You're going to turn yourself into the main character of your own personal little story. From here on out everything is going to change. You aren't going to be the generic background character that fades away into the scenery any more. Now, every good main character needs a good name, what's yours? >Makoto Kurogane>Takashi Nakamura>Yukihisa Yukimura
>>2829113One for >Yuki Yuki
>>2829125>>2829129>Makoto KuroganeOh yes of course that was your name. A plain average name such as that fit the kind of person that you used to be. Of course you were no longer going to be such a boring, useless guy. You were going to live a more exciting life from now on. However before you could think about how exactly you were going to improve your life you feel the sensation of somebody lightly shaking your shoulder. Your eyes shooting open you find yourself asleep on your desk, a trail of drool dribbling down your mouth. Looking up you see a bright faced girl with vibrant pink hair staring down at you. That's a face you know very well, it's the face of Sachi, your next door neighbor since childhood.Shaking her head she folds her arms, beaming down at you. "How long are you gonna' sleep for, Makoto. Class is about to start silly. >Complain about her waking you up. >Apologzie>Write in
>>2829150>Complain about her waking you up
>write inSachi! You've woken my demon eye, Perso Lumen!
>>2829171Now she's done it! It's time to show her what you're made of! You've spent days reading this new manga that had recently come out. It had taught you about all manner of special abiltities. Placing a hand in front of your eye you give Sachi a toothy grin. A harsh chuckle escapes your lips as you look over at at the quizzical girl. "Sachi! You've woken my demon eye, Perso Lumen!" That should really teach her, it'll show her the true meaning of fear. Maybe if you were lucky seeing your demonic new form would cause her to fall in love with you. Not that you were interested in her or anything but gathering a harem would be one step into getting a more interesting life! Sachi just stares at you, her lips twitching ever so slightly. You swear you could hear the entire class start to chatter at your sudden outburst. You're certain your reputation in class has plummeted. (Class reputation -1)"H-hey... Ha ha you're joking you don't actually have a demon eye right?"Despite absolutely nothing having happened Sachi takes a few scoots backwards from you. She was your only friend in this class, it was probably due to the fact that she always believed you when you went on about stupid stuff like this. "A-anyway, did you hear the rumors?">I don't care>What is it Sachi?>Write in.
>>2829194>What is it Saici-tan?~
>What is it Sachi? do we get info on game mechanics or do we learn as we go?
>>2829194>What is it Sachi?
>>2829204Learn as we go. The section where we're currently in is currently the tutorial period, so to say. I'm embarrassed to say but I'm still working out the kinks in a few future mechanics. But those aren't going to be relevant for a while. Either way, I think now is a good a time as any to explain the reputation system, since that's immediately relevant. Social groups and certain characters have certain gauges that determine how they feel about you. These gauges can affect how an NPC or a group will treat you in the future. The gauges are from -5 through five. The higher the number is more positively they'll feel towards you. The lower the more negative. You can feel free to ask me to post regular updates on how your reputations are going. Depending on what you do you can either lower or raise an individual's score. For example Sachi's reputation is a 5, we're in pretty good with her.The class' feelings towards us is a 0 now. They're practically neutral. This is going to be the most important mechanic for right now. Future mechanics will be explained as we go, as not to spoil the quest.
>>2829196>>2829204>>2829205"What is it Sachi-tan? This better be good." You smirk in an attempt to sound cool. You're still wondering why your demon eye didn't activate but.. Perhaps you'd have to consult that manga again. Leaning back in your seat you stare at Sachi. The girl keeps her perpetual grin, placing a hand on your hip. "We have a new student transferring in! Isn't that exciting!?" She practically shouts in your ear as she bounces up and down. Plugging one of your ears you close an eye, "New student huh?""Yeah" She reaches out to grab your wrist. "I know this could be an opportunity to get you some more friends!"You feel alarmed at the sudden contact. You can't help but feel your cheeks flush red. >Like I need friends.>I have plenty of friends already! >Write in
>>2829218>I have plenty of friends already!
>>2829218>like i need friends >pull hand back and straighten self out before the transfer student walks in If we wanna start a harem we can't have a possible future member seeing us holding hands with a girl and getting the wrong idea.
Hey I'm going to go take a nap before I make my next post, so this thing is on temporary hold. I'm thinking about setting up a twitter sometime to help with scheduling. I will for sure write up my next post as soon as I wake up, which should be in a few hours.
>>2829223>>2829229>>2829390"Come on Sachi, I don't need any more friends! I have plenty already!" You retort, although that's not the exact truth. Your response seems to strike a chord with Sachi. She closes her eyes, giving you a toothy grin. "Heh of course, since I'm your only friend that means I'm enough?" "I wouldn't go that far." You retort, retreating your hand away roughly, straightening yourself out to look cool. You might have just said that but.. You still wanted to look good in front of the new kid. The more popular you CAN get the better."Hey... Makoto, even if you have plenty of friends that's fine. As long as I'm still you're best friend!" >Of course you are!>You're a few years too young to be my best friend>Write in
>>2829865>Of course you are!But who knows, this new guy might give ya a run for your money, if you're not careful.(I just feel a need to tease this person)
>>2829886ThisAlso>inb4 we're the only one that can see Sachi
>>2829886(Gonna be a little inconsistent with posting Since a friend surprised me with a visit, but I'll try to get something out every hour.) "Of course you're my best friend...." You pause, before giving her a sleazy smirk. "But who knows maybe the new kid will give you a run for your money."Her face turns into one of shock, her hand covering her mouth. "A-are you sure!? W-well I'll just put in extra effort to keep my position! So look out!" She gave you a salute, leaning down close to you. "We'll see." You say dismissively, leaning against your chair. Honestly it was a little cute seeing her flustered like that. The bell for class ran, and Sachi gives you one last smile before heading over towards her desk in the front of class. The teacher walks up to class, a dull look on his face. "Listen up you slackers, today we have a new student attending class with us." He looks towards the door and motions for the new student to come in. "Hurry up already."An unfamiliar girl saunters into class standing at the front. Everything about her seems practiced and graceful, as if she's some sort of royalty. She opens her mouth, an speaks dully. "Alice Crawford." She sends the class an icey glare before eventually stopping at you, her eyes turning into daggers. What do you do?>Say something>Just ignore her>Write in
>>2830157If it's appropriate to say something, then: "Welcome to the class." Otherwise maybe just nod in recognition if her introduction and stay silent. I dunno what the glare is for but we can try to figure that out later without involving the entire class and the teacher.
>>2830157> write-in > try to look at her with the demon eye > give her a smile we are going to be chuuni
>>2830157This >>2830331Don't take the bait.
(Gonna go with a slight mix of a few responses.)You attempt to look at her with your demon eye and yet still no response. You're lucky that you didn't shout about it like some sort of dumb ass. Who knows what could have happened this time. You briefly pondered buying some sort of contact to make your "demon eye" stand out. That was cool these days wasn't it? Either way, aside from just looking back at her you decide to ignore her. You turn your head, deciding it would be best to not deal with that. If you could control it maybe you could figure out why she gave you the stink eye later. That's when you could hear the sound of foot steps approach you. Darting your eyes upwards you see the new student, Alice Crawford, standing right beside you. At least you see her legs, from where you're sitting. You can't help but notice how slender they appear. "Teacher, I'm sitting here." The girl bluntly tells your teacher, who just shrugs his shoulders. You can't help but notice that her voice has some foreign accent. It's pretty clear she's not from this country. Class goes on as usual. You continue to ignore her, ignore her very presence. you're not going to take her bait and start a fight. As your ignoring her, however, you feel somebody's breath brushing against your ear. Turning your eyes, you feel your body freeze. The new girl was leaning close to you, ignoring the teacher. Very softly she whispers into your ear. "You're ignoring me this time. You really think acting like nothing happened will change what you did? That's almost more insulting than if you'd pretended to be friendly." What the hell was she talking about? You know for a fact you've never met her before in your life. "Whatever, it is no matter. What's done is done. I was a fool for giving you so many chances in the past. Let it be known, Makoto Kurogane, this time I'm going to put an end to your life."And YOU thought you were chuuni. This girl was spouting nonsense from some kind of anime. Was she delusional or what? Still, you couldn't help but feel this nonsense was her own personal decoration of war. >Confront her, ask her what the hell she's talking about.>Ignore her. It's better to let crazies live in their own world.>Write in.
>>2830436>Whatever mischief your up too you won't be able to eacape my demon eye!>out chunni her
>>2830436Ok, so the transfer student heard of our chuuni ways and wants to erp in the middle of the class. What a breath of fresh air! Sachi never plays along. Lets have fun! Play along! NO! Outplay her! Start speaking about past lives and destined meetings. As low as possible, try not to make an scene.
>>2830436>Confront her, double down on our chunni and escalate
>>2830489>>2830497>>2830537(All pretty much the same idea.) "Heh, what mischief you are up to this time won't be able to steer me off my path this time witch." You laugh, keeping your voice barely above a whisper. "No matter what you have prepared for me this time I will meet you toe to toe. It must have been fate for the two of us to meet again,my valiant foe."She smirks, refusing to back away. "You never change... It just so sickens me. Tell me, Kurogane, if you remember by chance how the two of us met, please tell me." >We were bitter enemies>You were a princess that I rescued in a past life>Write in.
>>2830608I seem to recall a warrior companion, bold and true, who abandoned me in my darkest hour. Could that be you?
>>2830635This seems reasonable, but it is imperative to say it as serious as possible, looking her right into the eyes. Try to make her break eye contact first. If successful, brag about demon eye.
>>2830608>We were bitter enemies
>>2830608>Ah yes, Madam Crawford. It was a stormy night, fraught with perils, but in the darkest of places, while we both wrestled with our demons within, we met under the moonlight, underneath a solitary tree. I was a mere boy, unknowing of the demonic powers trapped within me, while you were someone new, someone who I could seem to relate you. It was my mistake to trust you... But do you ever find yourself missing those days, Alice? Those happy, peaceful, tranquil days we spent together, exploring the world? I constantly ponder why it had to end the way it did, but I think I've known the answer all along. We were fated to destroy one another through our own follies. But, now that we've been given this fragile, transient second chance at life, I find myself wondering. Do you think it's possible for mankind to defy their destiny?
Sorry I've been so inconsistent tonight. I'm free now so I'll be able to post more consistently the rest of the night.
>>2830635>>2830647You feel as if the weight of the entire world was bearing down on your shoulders. The cold glare she gave you felt like it could tear through your very flesh. Clearing your throat as you stare her into the eyes, steeling yourself. You had to prove to her that you wouldn't back down."I seem to recall a warrior companion, bold and true, who abandoned me in my darkest hour. Could that be you? If so what happened to us?Are we fated to betray one another? May we not fight our destinies?"She looks back at you, completely stunned. It seemed as if she didn't have a come back for any of this. Smirking you grin down at her triumphantly. "And such is the power of the demon eye, my brave opponent." You mutter as if that meant anything.Suddenly her lips twisted into a cruel grin. She grabbed a hold of your tie and pulled you closer to her face, merely inches apart. "Oh I see...So that's your game is it? You don't remember at all do you? Otherwise how would you pass the blame on me, after all of the times you stabbed me in the back and twisted the knife. You truly are a sick person, Makoto Kurogane." For some reason you get the sense that if you weren't in a class surrounded by people she would have murdered you right on the spot. She loosens your grip on your tie. "Makoto Kurogane... I will give you one last test of character. How do you feel about this world? Are you tired of it?">I love this world>I wish it could be more exciting>Write in
>>2830950>I wish it could be more excitingyou get the sense that if you weren't in a class surrounded by people she would have murdered you right on the spotI'm gonna die laughing if she's just legit loony and we die egging her on with our chuuni habits
>>2830950>I wish it could be more exciting
>>2830950>>I wish it could be more exciting
>>2830950> I wish it could be more exciting >>2830963This is the exciting life Makoto wishes for after all
>>2830963>>2830971>>2830983You know in your heart your answer the moment she asks her question. It wouldn't need to be asked. "I am tired of my ordinary boring life. I wish this world was more exciting."Letting go of your tie somberly Alice stared off to the side, before retreating away from your desk to sit at her seat, not spearing a glance at you. "I see...You never do change Kurogane. And I am certain you never will." You can almost feel the contempt seething out of her voice. (Alice reputation -1) You sit in silence for the remainder of class until the final bell rings, signalling the end of the school day. You get up, prepared to get on with your day when you feel somebody slam their hands down on your shoulders. "Makoto what were you talking with that new girl about!?" You knew that voice, it was Sachi's. For a second you were afraid it was going to be that Alice girl again, finally come to attack you!>Tell Sachi what happened between you and the new girl>Say you don't want to talk about it>Write in
>>2831061>Tell Sachi what happened between you and the new girl
>>2831061>Tell Sachi what happened between you and the new girlWe need someone to know what happened when our limbs start being found in the trash
>>2831061> Tell Sachi > also ask if we can walk home together Maybe we can have her be our body guard/meat shield if Alice were to suddenly attack us on the way home. I bet she's the stalker type.
>>2831061>Oh dear Sachi is our healer in our ragtag group of adventurer party back then.
>>2831072Hopefully she's not the first one to find our limbs, eh?
>>2831061>>Tell Sachi what happened between you and the new girl
>>2831072>>2831078>>2831081Biting down your lip you decide to swallow your pride and tell your friend everything that had gone on, about your personal encounter with that woman. After all she'd listen to you wouldn't she? She was supposed to be your best friend. And in situations like these it'd be best to tell her what's going on. Fighting for words you look around to spot Alice. You see her surrounded by other students asking her questions. Good. "T-the new girl Alice... That devil decided it was best to challenge me! Ha she threatened to kill me! " Despite your attempts to act brave your voice betrays your fear.You turn to face Sachi, who only frowns at you. Slowly reaching out she grabs a hold of one of your shoulders. "Are you scared, Makoto?"It was a simple, innocent question, free of any hostilities. Looking down at your feet you nod your head. "I-it's not as if I can't fight her wickedness on my own but...""You want me to walk you home?""Yeah..."She smiles and grabs you by the wrist, jerking you up to your feet. "Well it's better to leave while she's distracted right? So where do you want to go? Straight home or go to the arcade or movie theater first?">Go straight home>Going somewhere sounds fun>Write in
>>2831143Go to the movies but when leaving make sure to blend in with the crowd and take a zig zagging path home.
>>2831143I hate it when I forget my picture.
>>2831147"Let's go to the theater! That foul devil won't find us there." Ha quick thinking. Once you get there you'll just dodge her left and right. You'll totally lose her in the crowd in case she followed you. "Okay you're the boss Makoto! Oh I think they're playing a new anime movie. You're such a dork, you like that sort of stuff right?" She giggles as she skips off ahead of you. "I am no dork! Anime is important to our culture! Only true sages can decipher the messages being taught!" Of course a simpleton like her wouldn't understand. Still the two of you take a thirty minute walk to the nearest theater to see an undisclosed anime movie. Eventually the line moves up and you're only waiting behind one more person. A small girl who looks no older than 13. "W-what do you mean my currency won't work here? Do you know who I am!?" She demands in very broken Japanese. It seems she's unable to pay a ticket. You and Sachi look at each other in dismay. >Help pay for the girl's ticket>Wait until she gets kicked out>Write in
>>2831206>Help pay for the girl's ticket I enjoyed the quest so far now I must sleep.
>>2831209I'm glad you had fun Anon. I'll probably run this again sometime tomorrow. If not tomorrow then the next day for sure.
>>2831206>Help pay for the girl's ticket.While on one hand, it's kinda awkward to just barge into the situation, I assume as a dork who probably watches a lot of anime Makoto would sympathize with the pain of missing out on a good show you were eager to watch.Used to hate it whenever I accidentally missed one of my Saturday morning cartoons as a kid.
>>2831236>>2831209(Gonna be my last post for tonight. I'll try to get some more posts done as soon as I wake up. Due to my bad internal clock That'd be realistically around 2:00 PM Central time. However if I'm lucky I might be up as early as 12:00 Pm central time. After this thing has been going on for a while and I'm sure it's going to last (Which I'm confidant it will) I'll set up a twitter for proper scheduling.)"... I can spare the girl a dime." You tell Sachi, resulting in the girl giving you a thumbs up. "I knew you were a nice person Makoto! Go get her!" She almost sounded like she was telling you to go pick up some girl. In retrospect you feel she could have put that better. Puffing up your chest you walk over towards the small girl and giver her a pat on the shoulder. She looks up at you with curious eyes, her breaking her attention from the guy who ran the cash register. "Yes may I help you good sir?" She asks softly up at you.Smiling you pull out her wallet and pull out some extra change out of it. It wasn't much but your sister had some to spare last night. "I saw your plight young lass, and it broke my heart. Truly it did. I have decided to grace you with my kindness and pay for your ticket."Eyes lighting up the girl's hands snatched up the money, marveling at it. Giving a small nod of her head she looked up at you, before grabbing the hems of her dress and curtsying. "Thank you for your utmost kindness sir. I appreciate your generosity. My name is Elizabeth Crawford, I have just recently come to this country. Tell me, sir what are you called by?" (Elizabeth Reputation + 1) >My name is Makoto>Ha mere mortals should not know my name>Write in
>>2831264>Mortals refer to me as MakotoChuuni but not as condescending>Alice's sisterThis is probably super not good, but thanks for running.
>>2831264>>2831274This, some chunni to defend ourselves from the panic of having run into our newly acquired enemy's sister, but not so much to be antagonistic. Try to be friendly, and if things turn sour, we can just go to the arcade instead. I'd like to befriend Elizabeth in hopes of understanding more about why Alice hates us, or to help us smooth things over with her.
>>2831264>My name is Makoto
>>2831274Ill back this
>>2831264>>2831281>>2831274These. We should slowly build up defenses against Alice. Also>write-in > it's nice to meet you Alice. What movie are you watching? If it's the same movie, offer to watch together. Make small talk about how we know a transfer student sharing her last name.
>>2831649Just remember that Alice can't kill us is we marry her little sister.
>>2831668Unless getting close to the little sister gives her an even bigger reason to off us. Gotta raise reputation with Elizabeth ASAP so we reach the safe zone before Alice launches her attack >>2831649Also just realized I put Alice in the write in instead of Elizabeth but you know what I mean GM-kun
I slept for longer than I intended. I'm gonna write up a post in 20-30 minutes.
>>2831274>>2831281>>2831649That name... Instantly you recognize it. The name of your enemy, the name of the girl who threatened to kill you. Maybe this could be your chance? If you get closer to this girl there's a possibility you could learn more about your enemy. How brilliant. Becoming friends with somebody close to the enemy could gain you several advantages. "Mortals refer to me as Makoto. And this is my companion, Sachi!" You motion over towards the girl behind you who just waves at Elizabeth. "Hello." She greets, seeming as if wanting to draw as little attention to herself as much as possible. Elizabeth between the two of you, before bowing her head. "It is very much a pleasure to meet both of you, Mister Makoto, Miss Sachi. What brings the two of you here today?" "I was just about to ask that of you young lady." You proclaim proudly, not once letting your act drop. "We are here to bare witness to the acclaimed film 'your identity'. By chance would you be here for the same reason?"Touching her chest the girl looks taken aback. "Oh my, that's the same film I'm going to watch. I knew it was destiny the very moment I met you Mister Makoto. Would you and your girlfriend care to sit next to me in the theater? I would very much like if the first film I watched in this company was in the presence of friends.">I would very much be delighted to>Sorry I'd rather see it with just her>Write in
>>2832343Oh no I forgot my meme arrow
>>2832327>I would very much be delighted toQuickly wash away the idea that Sachi is your girlfriend, not blushing or anything, just negate it, as it were an axiom that she is not, a known fact of common knowledge that something like that could never happen.More over, send Sachi to buy food and continue talking with Elizabeth.
>>2832327> K-k-kanojo?! Baka nano?!But really > I would very much he delighted to > also she's not my girlfriend. Just a friend from class.
>>2832360"I would very much be delighted to!" You tell the girl proudly. You point back towards Sachi, not looking back at her. "But do not be mistaken. She and I are not romantic partners. She is only a friend of mine, nothing more. It can not be anything more." "So that's what you want huh Makoto?" You hear Sachi chuckling behind you. Despite your cold denial of a potential relationship she doesn't seem to be mad. No matter how hash you've treated her in the past she's only responded with the utmost positivity. You're sure you could kill somebody in front of her and she wouldn't judge you. "That's fine though, that'd just be weird if we ever went out.""Oh I see, I apologize for making the mistake. I always assumed that teenagers only cared about dating, with how my older sister complained about being asked out in our old country." Elizabeth Nodded her head as if she seemed to understand. The three of you quickly purchased your tickets. With thirty minutes to kill before show time you send Sachi away to purchase some snacks. Now that you're alone with Elizabeth it's time ot ask her some questions."Young girl, I have some questions I wish to ask of you;.""Oh whatever could they be Mister Makoto?" She asks, looking up at you expectantly. >Ask about Alice>Ask some personal questions>Write in
>>2832457I really should stop forgetting my pictures. That's going to be the death of me one day.

>>2832474>>2832489(Let me just say I feel bad for basically making a post an hour. I feel I could pump out posts faster. Then again maybe that's just a personal issue of mine and you guys don't mind.) "Oh could you tell me more about your older sister?" You ask, attempting to act as if you've never met the girl before. It was best to not make yourself seem suspicious. If you did she could report right back to her sister. Elizabeth nods and taps her chin. "Well I do not see the importance of this but, my older sister's name is, of course, Alice Crawford. The two of us moved to Japan from England three days ago. She began classes today while I don't start middle school until next week. Come to think o it, your friend was wearing the same uniform my sister was wearing this morning. Could it be you two might have met already?" What should you do? Should you tell her the truth or answer in a lie? Decision decisions.>Tell Elizabeth the whole truth>Tell her part of the truth>Lie outright>Write in
>>2832531I don't mind the time in between posts.>Maybe in a past life
>>2832548supportAs long as you run QM, that's good enough
>>2832548This is fine.
>>2832548>>2832551>>2832557"Maybe in a past life she and I have met each other. I do not know. I feel as if destiny binds us." You speak with the flourish that is expected of you. She folds her arms, as if contemplating something. "Now that you mention past lives, Mister Makoto, I can't help but shake the feeling you and I have met before in some time, some place before now. Of course that notion is impossible. But still it nags at me Mister Makoto." She closes her eyes in deep contemplative thought. Now that she mentions it now... She does feel slightly familiar to you. The same with her Sister, Alice. It's a small feeling, tugging at the back of your mind. Opening her mouth again, Elizabeth begins to speak. "I believe the notion silly of course, and I know it sounds childish but please do humor me, Mister Makoto. But do you truly believe in destiny, or past lives?" You can't get of this weird feeling that maybe Elizabeth has asked you this question before. You don't know how to respond. >Not really>Undoubtably>Write in
>>2832632>Write in "Sometimes it is difficult to determine if you really believe in anything. Are humans even capable of believing? Of truly doing so?

The only person you'd ever dared to tell about how you felt about your every day life before was Sachi. You just can't bottle it up any more. Everything about your life is boring. Boring boring boring boring boring BORING! You can't help but want to spice it up. "I see... Indeed all we can do is believe." Elizabeth doesn't seem to know what to make of your words, but she appears to be making an attempt at understanding. "Well I suppose we don't know for sure do we? But... If you'd like to believe I'd like to believe too. I think it was... Destiny the two of us met, Mister Makoto." She beams up at you, taking another step forward. Yeah... All you can do is believe. If you believe hard enough maybe you can destroy your mundane life? Maybe everything will finally truly become exciting. That's when you feel an intense migraine shoot through your head. You're assaulted with visions of you sitting in a dark night, cradling Elizabeth in your arms. Crimson stains her chest and her mouth, her eyes vacant and lifeless as they stare at the cloudy sky above. When you look up all you see are two girls. One you don't recognize, looking down at her feet and... Alice Crawford.She just stares at the scene, moving her mouth. She appears to be shouting but you can't make out what she's trying to say. "Makoto?" That word, your name, calls you back to the land of the land of normalcy. You turn your head and notice Sachi, smiling at you. "Hey are you alright? I got the food! Are you two ready to see the movie?" >Yeah I'm fine let's go!>I need to go to the bathroom, go ahead of me>Write in
>>2832720>I'm fine Sachi, let's get goin.>Update your internal journal on this odd stuff.
>>2832720>Yeah I'm fine, note to self ask parents about repressed past
>>2832720>Yeah I'm fine let's go!
>>2832720>Don't mind me, I was simply dreaming of lifetimes forgotten. Nothing important; let us be off.
>>2832734>>2832742>>2832785Regaining your senses you grip your head, giving a firm nod over at Sachi. "Yes of course I'm fine. I'm not so weak I give into illness or anything of the sort! Ha exactly what kind of man do you take me for? I'm more resilient than that!" You attempt to laugh off your uneasiness. "We must not waste time here you two! It's about to start!" Eagerly Elizabeth reaches out to grab your hand, as if to tug you along. Due to not having the same sense of boundaries as a teenager would she grabs your hand instead of your wrist as Sachi tends to do. Together the three of you get to your seats at the back of the theater and the show begins. As you watch the show you can't help but be plagued by the oddities that have been happening to you today. You decide to make note every time to get a weird feeling, or what not. Maybe you should ask your parents about this? Have you been out of the country before? If that's the case maybe you would have met Alice there. Either way these thoughts take your attention away from the movie.As the three of you walk out of the theater, Elizabeth skips ahead of you, seeming to be in absolutely high spirits. "You Japanese have such exquisite taste in cinema if I say so myself! That was a fantastic movie. What did you two think of such a dramatic tale?" Sachi forces a laugh shrugging her shoulders. "Well I don't really like anime all too much so it's alright I guess. what about you Makoto?" You were sipping on the coke Sachi bought you before when you feel her elbow connect with your side. "Oh I thought it was alright." You were prepared to see more when you stopped in your tracks. As you were looking off to the side your eyes locked onto a certain somebody. Alice Crawford, looking around through the crowded theater, as if she was trying to hunt for someone. >Run away without your companions>Try to act casual >Write in
>>2832898>Try to act casual
Hey i"m gonna take a little break and will probably reply in an hour or two. I feel as if I got a few good replies in already. How's everybody enjoying the quest? This is my first time doing something like this so I hope it's at least halfway decent. There are some times where I'm afraid I'm being too limiting towards player Agency.
>>2832898>Politely say goodbye to Elizabeth and quietly make your way out through the crowd in a manner to not draw attention.
>>2832966I like it so far, didn't expect the chunni route but i don't regret it.
>>2832966Doing pretty good since its my day off. The quest has intrigued me so far
>>2832966So far so good. Keep it up senpai
>>2832980Yeah I wasn't expecting Chunni route either. I chalk it up to good anons being creative. >>2832992>>2833041Thanks you guys. I'll be sure to post when I get back from a walk. I need some fresh air.
>>2832915>>2832921Fighting back your fear you decide to act casual, as if nothing had happened. A smile on your face you look at your two companions. "How about we venture on out past here?" You suggest, pretending that you didn't just spot your enemy lurking around the corner. "Alright, whatever you say, you're the boss Makoto!" Sachi just smiles and gives you a salute. "Fine, I am tired how about we get some food? I have always wanted to try dining. You will pay for me will you not Mister Makoto?" Elizabeth asks, her arms folded behind her back,"Sure the more the merrier." Surely Alice wouldn't kill you while her sister was around would she? As you three leave the theater you turn around and feel your blood turn absolute zero. You see Alice pushing against the crowd, her eyes trained on you. >Approach Alice>Quickly hurry on your way>Go straight home>Write in
>>2833189>Quickly hurry on your wayFlank speed
>>2833189>Quickly hurry on your wayTime to disappear
>>2833189>Quickly hurry on your wayDo the Naruto run while you're at it
>>2833227>>2833247You decide it's time to make tracks. The sooner you get out of here the better. Quickening your pace you begin to make your way from the theater. Both Sachi and Elizabeth seem to have trouble following behind you but you don't care. Eventually the three of you make it to a near by McDonalds. You wanted to eat somewhere nicer than this but... You were running out of options on where to hide out. "Mister Makoto stop, allow me to catch my breath." Complains Elizabeth, placing her hands on her knees, panting. "I apologize, I was just eager for some food." You comment as you look past the girl, trying to see if you can spot Alice. Make a D 100 roll to see how well we did in escaping Alice.
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>2833321ez
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>2833321Alice begone thot
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>2833321
>>2833326You don't see Alice. She's nowhere to be seen. No matter how hard you strain your eyes you can't see her. However you get the sense that maybe, just maybe you didn't completely lose her. No she somehow knew you were going to be at the theater didn't she? What if she knows you're going to come here too? It could be all in your head but that's the thing, you simply don't know. "Eh we're eating here?" You hear Sachi complain from beside you. "Well I guess I'll order a side of fries but that's all I'm going to eat. You know I shouldn't eat that much junk food.""Suit yourself Miss Sachi, I suppose that means there's more food for me! After all you know the saying another man's table scraps are another person's dinner?" Elizabeth's analogy confuses you. Wouldn't that phrasing imply that she's some kind of homeless person? Whatever you decide not to question her strange foreign metaphors. "Let us get to eating Mister Makoto! I am quite famished.""Yes of course!" You say halfheartedly, not quite shaking the feeling you still might be in some danger, >You get your food to go and depart for home>You eat at the restaurant >Write in
>>2833469>You eat at the restaurantWe will not be cowed into submission by the she-demon
>>2833469>>You eat at the restaurant
>>2833469>You eat at the restaurant
>>2833477>>2833482>>2833542You decide enough is enough! Enough cowering from this new transfer student. It was already bad enough that she was consuming your thoughts. You were going to enjoy your unhealthy junk food and you were going to like it! You were the master of the demon eye after all, the absolute king! Deciding to get rid of all of your fears you storm up to the counter.You order A big mac with a large side of fries and another coke. One could say that you should drink healthier and not have so much soda but "to hell with you!" you say to those people. Who needs them anyway?Sachi gets an order of medium sized fries to watch her figure. Despite being such a small girl Elizabeth orders Two cheeseburgers A large side of fries, a Dr.Pepper and humbly requested that you purchase her a toy with the meal. You three sit in the center of the room, sitting around idly as you stare at the window. Conversation has been dead for over five minutes now. Not good the silence is giving you thoughts of paranoia. What should you do to break the silence?>Make fun of Sachi not eating that much>Ask Elizabeth why she's want a toy at her age>Write in
>>2833613>Ask Elizabeth about herself or her family.>Is this their first time in the country or have they been here before.? >What do their parents do?>etc.
>>2833631Nice I'm glad you guys are putting a good focus on learning more about Alice and Elizabeth's lives.
>>2833631This is good
>>2833631>>2833636>>2833667You decide that opposed to making fun of your only companions, you're going to get to know Elizabeth better. Taking a bite of your big mac you lean back in your seat,turning your head to face Elizabeth, who seems absorbed with her food. "Elizabeth, is this your first venture in this country?"Looking up at you, food still half in her mouth, she shakes her head. The girl swallows her food before wiping her mouth with a napkin. "Yes of course it is. I have only left England once three years ago for a trip to America. Why are you asking?" She pauses for just a moment before smirking smugly. "Oho... Could this be what you were talking about? About past lives and destiny? Well perhaps in a past life we met here in Japan! You could have been a noble warrior and I your bride!""Huh Makoto what were you talking about with a middle school girl? You weren't flirting with her were you!?" Sachi of course shouts as per usual. In front of the whole store. "Hmph, as if I would bother with somebody who has not yet matured into a woman." You simply cut her off before directing attention to Elizabeth again."So... What of your family? Such as your sister? How are they adjusting to this venture?""My sister? Well... Alice was behaving normally until... It came to this morning. She was behaving strangely.""What do you mean? Please explain.""Well she was acting more cold, and distant, as opposed to her more friendly self. I wonder, does she miss our life back home." She takes a simple sip of her soda. "And what are you doing in this country in the first place?""It's our father's job. Our father is an important CEO to a rather large business, and he recently got transferred to here. By the way Mister Makoto... I have a request for you, if you'll hear it. I'd rather be called Liza, if that's alright with you?"You think for a moment, before giving a nod of your head. "Very well you shall be the one known as Liza from now on!"Liza beams up at you, before pausing for a moment. Her face lights up and she starts waving. "Oh dearest sister! Fancy that you decided to come here."You Freeze. Wait did she just say... Sister?>Ignore her.>Greet Alice
>>2833748>Forgot to write write inKill me. Anyway Writing in is always an option.
>>2833748>Slowly turn around>Greet Alice"Good Evening Alice-chan, fancy seeing you here.">Look for ways to escape
>>2833760>>2833786Slowly you you turn around to face the target of your fear. The girl who had declared herself your enemy just earlier today. Alice Crawford. Standing from your seat you approach her, staring her straight into the eye. "Greetings my foe. It's lovely to see you this evening. Have you perhaps reconsidered your declaration of war?" Alice's face contorts into a cruel smirk as she matches your gaze, equally as unfaltering. "Oh so you have decided to greet me have you? That's a much less shameful display than fleeing. Perhaps I underestimated your integrity. As for receding my declaration of war... I'm sorry but that will never happen as long as you still breathe." "If that is the case then strike me down now." "... I'm smarter than to attack when you have the advantage. It's cruel of you to have abducted my sister like this.">Oh no we're simply friends>Of course I need a good hostage>Write in
>>2833829>I. Am. Insulted. Good lady Crawford have I, in anyway, Made you feel coerced into joining me this evening? Ham it up, see if she can take the hint and play along
>>2833829>Oh no we're simply friends
>>2833834I like this
>>2833834>>2833905"I. Am. Insulted good lady craw ford. Have I, in any way made you feel forced into joining me this evening?" You declare to her, feet firmly planted on the ground. If she tried anything, if she wanted to rush you, you would be ready. "How quaint, is seems after all of this time you still keep up that talk! Then allow me to answer you as bluntly as possible. I pursue you specifically because I wish to. If I could have broken all ties with you I would have by now. I suppose for all of your sins, being a coward, a traitor, a selfish imbecile a needless murderer isn't one. Especially towards Elizabeth. Still you have run from me all evening. Have my words struck a chord with you Kurogane? Are you afraid?"From the corner of your eye you see Elizabeth approach you. From her movement she seems afraid... More so of her own sister than anything else. >Ha as if you could make me feel scared>And what of you? Sneaking like a coward.>Write in
>>2833929>Ha as if you could make me feel scaredGotta maintain the facade
>>2833929>Write inPut ourselves in between Elizabeth and Alice, using our body as a shield. It is the duty of a king to protect his subjects. "Even if I was to be shaken by such tactics, I cannot allow such emotions to overtake my sense of reason. I hope that you shall also not let your emotions do the same. If possible we can calmly discuss our matters. After all, we find ourselves at an eating establishment, surely such qualms are handled best over a meal."
>>2833939I'm going with this guy. Time to be the meat shied!
>>2833939Order her a big Wac. Bitches loves big Wac. Also QM you shouldn't say M*Donald's it's WcDonald because this is anime world. You don't advertise irl fast food chain unless the company paid you to do one.
>>2833976I was debating between Wc And m*donalds. In fear of getting into legal troubles it'll be WcDonalds from now on. Also we don't want to be like Code Geass and gratuitously shill a fast food chain.
>>2833939>>2833967>>2833976Liza opens her mouth as if to say something but she shuts it again. Seeing the girl at such a loss fills you with a protective instinct. You step between Liza and Alice, holding our your arm in front of the younger girl. If you are a valiant knight then Liza is a princess in need of protection. If you are a king then she and Sachi are your subjects. "Even if I was to be shaken by such tactics, I cannot allow such emotions to overtake my sense of reason. I hope that you shall also not let your emotions do the same. If possible we can calmly discuss our matters. After all, we find ourselves at an eating establishment, surely such qualms are handled best over a meal."She stares at you blankly completely taken aback, before laughing into her hand. She seems to genuinely find your attempts at diplomacy hilarious, or perhaps they were just laughable. "Fine, I suppose I could humor you. Very well let's talk this over a meal."Liza lets out a sigh of relief. "Thank goodness." You could hear her mutter. You order Alice a big wac and some fries and place it in front of her. She eyes the food carefully before unwrapping it. Liza sits next to you, her eyes glues to her lap. Sachi eyes the three of you, oddly silent. "So... What did you wish to speak of first?" Alice bites, glancing over at you. >Ask any questions you want guys.
>>2834021>About what you said earlier on what I remember back then. Sorry about that. I was testing if you also remember something about our past. I can say it privately though given you wouldn't impale me with a sword again.
>>2834021"Do you truly wish see to my demise, so as to attain my Persa Lumen and obtain ultimate demon power!?"
>>2834032This and also "Exactly what manner of transgression have I committed against you?"
>>2834029Wouldn't this kind of question make her more hostile? Idk but saying we were testing her doesn't seem so wise since she was testing us first.
>>2834032>>2834053>>2834059"Do you truly wish to see my demise as to attain my Persa Luymen and obtain the ukltimate power?" You ask straight up without any sign of irony. "... Heh, I have already obtained the power of demons, I do not need your power." She answers suddenly, the exact opposite response that you expected. "... What manner of transgressions have I committed against you?"Her eyes narrow down to a glare. "What transgression s have you committed against me? At this point the list is countless, it feels as if you've committed a lifetime of transgressions against me. To keep it simple though the reason I wish to kill you. You have committed the most henious crime on the world, over and over, the cause of a great tragedy. Even if I explain the nature of your crime to you it wouldn't prevent it. If anything I'm certain it would only solidify that you would repeat the same action again." >Ask her to elaborate further>Get offended that she would insinuate such a thing.>Write in
>>2834095>Ask her to elaborate furtherSubtly slip in something about the vision we had
>>2834095>Like what? Like your sister dying in my arms while I cry myself not powerful enough to save her?
>>2834095"A transgression yet to be committed, but forever repeated? I see. My hazy vision from before becomes clearer. Something like a recurring reality bound by destiny? If it is as I suspect then you are right to be furious at the state of things. I may not have as vivid a recollection of it as you, but know that I do not wish to be your enemy if we mutually seek a more favorable outcome"
>>2834136>>2834138You are starting to get a clear picture of what is going on, perhaps this relates to that strange vision you had before? Deciding to pursue the truth you decide to confront her, to get further understanding on all of this. "A transgression yet to be committed, but forever repeated? I see. My hazy vision from before becomes clearer. Something like a recurring reality bound by destiny? If it is as I suspect then you are right to be furious at the state of things. I may not have as vivid a recollection of it as you, but know that I do not wish to be your enemy if we mutually seek a more favorable outcome. I too am haunted by visions of your sister..." You leave that last part rather unexplained.She narrows her eyes and bites into her big wac, taking a few moments to respond as she mulled it over. "Time and time again you've given me the same response, and time and time again you've stabbed me in the back. No matter how much things change they will always stay the same. If I tell you the nature of why exactly I must kill you I'll simply be sealing this world's fate again." A heavy sigh escapes her lips. "I have a proposition for you. If you promise me this I will leave you alone. Do you want to hear my terms?""Why of course, anything to change the course of history." She takes in a deep breath, closing her eyes. For the first time since you've met her you see a sense of vulnerability. "Tonight a series of strange mysteries surrounding this town will begin. Tomorrow at around Eight at night you will be caught up in these incidents. No matter how tempting it might be, or how exciting the prospect is... After something strange and abnormal happens to you, you will forget it ever happened, ignore it and return to your normal, boring life." >... I will never accept my boring life>Understood>Write in
I'm gonna say you guys made a lot of good choices. You've learned more early on , I'm proud of you guys. I'm interested to see how you'll react to some future events.
>>2834166"Will not the threads of fate bind me to my destiny? Alas, even if it were possible to overcome such a thing, how are you assured that such a decision will change everything? Have you not suggested something like this before? Is this truly the first time that I have been open to such a suggestion? Surely it must be otherwise you would know your efforts to be fruitless. So I ask of you, what has changed now, to inspire such a differing course of action for you? Is this a desperate last hope or a well thought out proposition? The answer to your request hangs in the balance of your response."
>>2834166>"I'm willing to agree, so long as me and mine aren't in serious danger and I can prevent it from happening."
>>2834195Supporting this, we want some more info on her efforts in the past iterations of the story
So I'm gonna head to bed. Tomorrow there's a high chance I'll busy most of the day. Still I'll try to get some posts out. After tomorrow I'll set up that twitter. I hope you all have a good quest, and for those of you who are just waking up or are still awake, have a good day.
>>2834222^Hope you all enjoyed the quest, not have a good questYou can tell I've been up all night.
Alice seems pretty obsessed with betrayal, at this point I am convinced that the only way to calm her is to accept her as our enemy and promise to "not stab her in the back" but to do it up front. If we are enemies she has no reason to expect betrayal from us.>>2834195This seems reasonable.
>>2834200Imma support this.
>>2834200"Will not the threads of fate bind me to my destiny? Alas, even if it were possible to overcome such a thing, how are you assured that such a decision will change everything?

So I ask of you, what has changed now, to inspire such a differing course of action for you? Is this a desperate last hope or a well thought out proposition? The answer to your request hangs in the balance of your response." You truly want to understand her, you really do. You aren't going to lie, part of this conversation actually sounds... A little exciting. She looks at us with a glance that betrayed the slightest bit of hope. Biting her lip she decides to further explain. "I am not one to lie, this is a last desperate act. If you betray me this time, I will have no option BUT to end your life, as I can tell one's destiny is truly set in stone. I can't very well ask you to stay out of the up coming events, for they will suck you into them. So tell me, Makoto Kurogane, I wish to know where you stand. Will you brand yourself my enemy in the coming days?""Dearest sister, Mister Makoto is not our enemy!" Liza finally decides to speak up. "He would never do anything to hurt us.">I am your enemy Lady Alice>Of course I would never betray any of you
>>2835408>Of course I would never betray any of you
>>2835408>I am your enemy Lady Alice
>>2835408Let's stand up proudly for this and speak with vigor and zeal. "Lady Alice, Lady Liza, Lady Sachi, I, the destined wielder of the demon eye, shall never let harm befall my subjects for I am to be king of this world! If being king means that I must take humble steps towards my goal then so be it as long as my subjects are safe. For truly, what is a king without his people, what is a kingdom ruled solely by the will of the king and not of those he represents? I may have missteped in countless lives prior, but if you'll have me, I wish to usher in an era of greatness for all. Thus, Lady Alice, I shall brand myself whatever it is you wish for I would never betray your trust nor the trust of any others under my service. However, if I am to falter, please ensure that I shall never again cause anyone such pain. All I wish is to break free of this boring life and claim my throne, but the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few and thus I shall quell my ambitions till the tides of fate prove more opportune."

>>2835464>>2835479Slamming your hands on the table you stand up proudly, staring down over at Alice. You have decided to make a resolve. "Lady Alice, Lady Liza, Lady Sachi, I, the destined wielder of the demon eye, shall never let harm befall my subjects for I am to be king of this world! If being king means that I must take humble steps towards my goal then so be it as long as my subjects are safe.

You proclaim boldly at the shell shocked woman.She lets out a harsh chuckle, staring down at her big wac. She takes another bite before standing up, turning away from you. "You say all of that... I must admit, something like that is a first. Still it doesn't get up my hopes. I refuse to see you as an ally however... I will put off seeing you as an enemy. You are a wild card, Makoto Kurogane. You wish to become a king and claim your throne shall you? We shall see how you respond to your first road block then. Just be known if something happens to you, I will not help you, until I'm certain you can change your ways." She takes in a deep breath before striding towards the door. "The day after tomorrow, I want you to meet with me. I will make my decision about you then. I want to talk to you after you've been exposed to this world. Elizabeth, we're going home." (Alice Reputation +1)She steps out of the building, Elizabeth standing out of her seat. She looks up at you, smiling awkwardly at you. "Um, Mister Makoto, I hope you get along with my sister. Despite how it ended, I enjoyed my time with you. We will meet again, won't we?">Yes of course we will >Likely not>Write in
>>2836709"Surely. You are my liege after all." Also let's appoint Sachi as our chief adviser. "Lady Sachi, it is time for your position to be officially commemorated. From this day hence you are to be my chief adviser. You shall ensure that I do not act in an unwise manner, that I heed the demands of the people and that I uphold my promises."
>>2836709>"All of life is a stage and we are but poor pawns in it's play. But I digress Lady Liza, We shall meet again.">Give Elizabeth a headpat while giving a genuine smile to her
>>2836709>Yes of course we will >Give Liza-chan a head pat

>>2836720>>2836728This. Poor Sachi has been little more than furniture for the whole exchange. I am really supusicus of her."Sachi, I am tired, walk me home gently."
>>2836736Calling it now Sachi has Reading Steiner. Can we ask her how to unlock our Perso Lumen's full potential.
>>2836720>>2836721>>2836736"All of life is a stage and we are but poor pawns in it's play. But I digress Lady Liza, We shall meet again." You smile softly at her, gently patting her on the head. She beams up at you, her face turning a slight shade of red. "Of course, I shall hold you to your word... SIR Makoto. If you dare break your promise to a proper lady such as myself you will lose all right to call yourself a gentleman." She skips off towards her sister before turning around and giving you one final wave good bye. Now it was just you and Sachi. She stands up smiling awkwardly at you as she approached. "Wow that was so weeeird. What were you two playing some kind of game or something? I didn't understand half of it but, it looks like you two were having fun. Were you copying an anime you're into? It sounded like you both were on each other's wavelength. I'm kind of jealous to see you getting along so well... But maybe you should pretend less." "... Sachi, my dearest friend. From this day onward I will make sure that you keep me from losing my path." You walk over towards her, placing a hand on her head. "I am so very tired, if you would be so kind would you walk me gently."Smiling up at you she nods her head. "Uh okay I don't really know what that means but I;ll be sure to treat you as gently as possible!" And so you two headed home. As soon as you arrive you went to bed and called it a day.(Part 1/3)

1:27 AM, the second dayA girl stands above a building, her long dress billowing in the wind. A sigh escapes her lips as she jumps down from her place, landing gracefully on the ground. She dusts herself off as she approaches the gruesome sight in front of her. A pair, a man and a woman, lay in a heap of flesh in front of her. She brushes a strand of hair from her face, staring down at the corpses with eyes full of sorrow. Their bodies were utterly brutalized, it was hard to tell where they began and where they ended. The scent rung fresh in the woman's nostrils. This wasn't her first time seeing such brutal sights. Ever since her involvement with the church she'd been exposed to many a tragic sights. "I pray for your safe passage to the world beyond." She muttered, pulling out a cross and gently kissing it. "I apologize I came too late." She turned her back from the corpses and began walking away solemnly, a single tear dripping from her eye. She may have been involved with this kind of work for several years now, but that didn't mean it made this any easier. She went on her way, searching for the villain who would instill such tragedy.
I can't wait for Sachi to awaken our demon eye>if you know what I mean
>>2836833OH SHIT! What is going on? Wait, didn't Alice mention she had the powers of demons? The plot thickens.
Your name is Makoto Kurogane, and your find yourself in a plain field, a nice, bright warm environment. In front of you is a figure. You can't make out their shape, gender, age anything about them. They seem to be a form shrouded in ambiguity. All you can make out is an ever present smile on their face. "That was quite an eventful day wasn't it Makoto!? It truly was far from the ordinary, huh? How do feel about the life you wished for? Your more exciting life? Did you enjoy your first day?" You stare at the stranger, unsure how to exactly respond to them. >It was exciting>It was rather boring>Write in
>>2836867>"It was pretty okay. Could use more fries and soda though."
>>2836867>Write in"Who are you?"
>>2836837Still waiting for Alice backstory before picking between either Sachi or Alice route. But one things for sure We must protect Elizabeth's smile
>>2836881>route locking this earlyThe king loves all his servants. Harem path a go!
>>2836881>settling for oneThat's not how being an exciting protagonist works
>>2836867>Whom do I have to thank for such an interesting day?
>>2836867>Write in >I suppose it was more interesting than usual. Why do you ask? Did you have anything to do with it? I don't think Makoto is fully on-board or fully aware of things going on. A more cautious answer would be best.
>>2836914I like this
>>2836867>Write inI suppose it was more interesting than usual, but still, rather tame. No offence, but I was expecting more, much more. Nevertheless, keep the good work.
>>2836914This, he doesn't seem like the type to go headfirst into the unknown, even if it is tempting.
>>2836914"I suppose it was more interesting than usual. Why do you ask? Did you have anything to do with it?" You feel your head, trying to fight off the fogginess assaulting your brain. The figure lets out a small chuckle as they outstretch their arms. "In a way I suppose I do. Really you're the one causing all of this. I'm just giving it a little push. I only exist to make your wildest fantasies come true, Makoto. That's why... I'm truly hoping you're enjoying yourself. I suppose you can call me your guardian angel, although I guess you Japanese don't really care for such a concept. So consider me a spirit who's watching over you!">Why me?>Oh a guardian spirit, that completely makes sense.>Write in
>>2836976>>Oh a guardian spirit, that completely makes sense.Truly the demon king can command even angels to his side.
>>2836976>Oh a guardian spirit, that completely makes senseBut sarcastically if it wasn't already
>>2836980>>2836981"Oh a guardian spirit, that makes complete sense. Just the utmost." You speak sarcastically of course. You may believe in demons and angels and stuff but something of this manner was a little dumb. The figure only chuckles, turning away from you. "I see you're having a hard time believing this. Oh well, you have plenty of time to become acquainted with me. Just keep in mind, Makoto, if you ever truly bore of this world..." They turn they head in your direction, their smile still ever present. "You can always destroy it and create a new one whenever you please." Your eyes shoot open and you find yourself laying in bed, staring at your ceiling. It appears that whole vision was merely a dream. Still, the prospect of a king such as yourself controlling even angels was... a very tempting thought. Getting out of bed you change into your school uniform and check the time. It appears you've over slept! Class is in fifteen minutes. What do you do?>Book it to class>Stop by Sachi's house, maybe you can walk with her? >Write in
>>2837022>Stop by Sachi's house, maybe you can walk with her?
Sometimes I wish I had artistic talent to draw out the scenes, since half of my time now is looking for pictures to use for the quest.
Also at the risk of getting shit posts I made a twitter for the quest as I promised. I'll be posting any time I plan to run here. I mean I can't run every day so It's best to to keep everybody up to date. https://twitter.com/Shiki042
>>2837022>>Write inPssh , Kings don't need school
>>2837022>You can always destroy it and create a new one >Class is in fifteen minutes Activate Perso Lumen. Destroy the world and start over obviously. Serious answer: >Write in As we get ready for school, we become curious about the vision we had. Try activating our powers. "Wish" for time to stop. >>2837029>>2837035If we overslept, will Sachi even be home?
>>2837113>If we overslept, will Sachi even be home?I am curious to see if she even has a home, and if she does, how it looks like. There is something off about Sachi.
>>2837118>if she even has a home Sachi Under the Bridge spin-off when?
>>2837071Nice. I don't usually use Twitter but it would help with keeping track. I pretty much have this thread watched on all my devices by now too.
>>2837113>>2837029>>2837035You become curious about the dream you had. you wonder... What was the whole meaning behind it? What was that figure trying to tell you. As you rummage through the kitchen to grab anything to eat on your way to school. You begin to ponder... Could you perhaps bend reality to your will? You concentrate and concentrate as hard as you can to perhaps stop time. To test if you were successful you take out a spoon from the drawer and see if it will drop. You let go and it... Unceremoniously drops to the floor with a clang. Damn it, turns out you were unable to stop time. As you continue to think about your dream you walk out of the house to go get Sachi. If you're lucky maybe you could walk home wit her? After all she WAS your neighbor. As you exit your house you notice the girl sitting on her front porch, not wearing her school uniform. She seems down about something. You approach her, walking up the steps. "Sachi, why are you not dressed for school? Class begins in only 10 minites!"She looks up at you, with sour eyes. "Oh Makoto it's..." She trails off before finding her courage. "It's just.... You know that my aunt and uncle that I've been staying with? Well I was just called by the police. They said that they found their bodies earlier this morning, and are coming by to take me to um... Confirm that it's them.">What happened?>I am sorry for your loss>Write in
>>2837130I'm glad somebody enjoys this quest enough to have it on constant watch.
>>2837155>I'll destroy the ones who did this
>>2837163I enjoy it enough that I'll probably make a twitter just to follow this and a couple other quests.
>>2837168Thanks that really means a lot. I was actually worried about whether or not this would survive past the first day of starting it. Seeing you guys come up with theories and stuff helps add to the fun of the whole thing.
>>2837155This>>2837165 and offer to go with her
>>2837155Fucking sword lady not coming in time to save them. You had one job. >>2837182Yes. Offer to go with her. Our people need us.
>>2837155>Write in"It is Alice's fault! I know it! She is my enemy after all, all the sweet talk was just to make me lower my guard!" Blame her, about everything and anything, past, present and future.Enter in a self indulgent diatribe about her, do not think too much about the situation, try to draw Sachi to it too, it is better that way.
>>2837188We were supposed to meet Alice after school today right? I'm pretty sure Sachi needs us to be with her for now. Throwing out accusations in front of her won't do us much good. We need to save our rage for when we demand from Alice to know what in the actual fuck is happening. Is it demons? Makoto doesn't know this but the woman with the sword is affiliated with the Church.
>>2837155Hug the fuck out of her. Offer to let her stay with us. So sorry for your loss. Assure her that she can always talk to us about whatever she needs. Also this >>2837165 and this >>2837182
>>2837165>>2837182>>2837202Walking over towards her you fall to your knees and wrap your arms around the girl, pulling her in tight. You feel her warmth against you. Still you pull her closer and closer. "You can always talk to me whenever you need it Sachi. After all, you are my ally, one of my beloved subjects. You are one of my dearest friends. I swear... I will destroy whoever did this." All you feel is rage, rage for whoever hurt Sachi like this. You hear a sniffle and feel her wrap an arm around you. "Don't say anything like that.... I know there's nothing you can do but, the sentiment is enough. Thank you Makoto." "I shall join you in your journey to the police station." You offer to your good friend. "Thank you... Makoto. You're a good person." As you two are embracing you hear the sound of frantic footsteps make their way to the front of Sachi's home. It is accompanied by ragged breathing. "Hey you're Mako right? Kurogane's brother?" It sound's like a girl's voice.>Why yes I am>Ignore her>Write in
>>2837215>Why yes I am
>>2837215> Write in > Yes I am. And I know my brother always gets into trouble so this better be important. As you can see, this isn't the time for me to deal with my brother's shenanigans.
>>2837218>>2837223You let go of Sachi and turn around to face the newcomer with a scowl on your face. "Yes that is what you mortals have decided to call me! I know my brother gets into all manner of trouble but I don't have time to deal with his shenanigans today. I have more important matters to attend to."The stranger stared at you, blinking on occasion. She wore the girl's uniform of your school, but you don't remember seeing her out of any of the faces of your year. Her face softens as she looks over both you and Sachi. "Ah sorry to interrupt but... Your brother sent you a ton of calls earlier today. He wanted to make sure you went to school on time, so he called me and sent me over. He helped me a lot when he was my upperclassmen so I decided the least I could do was check on his little brother." She gives you a wink. " My name is Maki Makinami. Trust me I know it's a dumb name. If what your brother told me about you is right I'm your upperclassmen." Running a hand through her hair she seems to look past you and over at Sachi. "Hey if something's the matter can I help?" >I don't imagine you could>Write in
>>2837298I don't imagine you could, (we are getting a little carried away here)
For the past hour I've been lamenting at how much I regret introducing this character at such a poor time. Oh well the past is the past.
>>2837298>Feel free to try to try your hand, but, unfortunately, I doubt you can ameliorate this tragedy.
>>2837349>>2837365(Yeah I think I need to call it a night. I'll return when I wake up.)"Feel free to try your hand but unfortunately I doubt you can ameliorate this tragedy." You look away from the girl who introduced herself as Maki. Quite frankly she irritated you slightly. You suppose it wasn't her fault, she couldn't have known, but you were still reeling from the emotions of having learned about Sachi's Aunt and Uncle's deaths. You didn't really talk to them personally however you understand Sachi's pain. "A tragedy? I don't mean to pry but, what happened?" The girl asks innocently, she's concerned at least. You guess that's all that matters. "... My aunt and uncle... Their bodies were discovered earlier this morning." Sachi mutters, her voice darker than you'd ever heard it before. Something about it makes you feel a slight pang of guilt. You were out late with Sachi that night. Perhaps if you hadn't been keeping her she could have spent a few final moments with her aunt and uncle. Your upperclassmen, Maki, bites her lip as she looks down at the floor. "Oh I see so those bodies... I'm sorry I didn't mean to pry or anything. Look I understand the situation, I'm sorry for barging right in uninvited. If it means anything, I'll make it up to you sometime later." There's an underlying theme of guilt in her voice. "You're right, there's not much I can really do, besides say I'm sorry." "Oh you don't need to apologize. It's not like... You were the one who did this." Sachi says meekly, reaching out to grab onto your sleeve. "I guess you are right. Well you have my blessings. I hope they are resting peacefully in heaven. I'm sorry for interrupting you two." She gives a quick bow of her head before walking off. Soon after her departure a police car arrives in front of the household. Stepping in front of you Sachi turns to give you another glance, tears still stinging her eyes. "Well, that's our ride. Do you still want to come to the station with me? You don't have to if you really don't want to." >I'll come>I think I'll wait here>Write in
>>2837378>I'll comeWe made a vow to take care of our own and we intrend to keep it!I wonder if our brother has anything to with these odd happenings?
>>2837378>I'll come inside you, you pretty lady.
>>2837378>I'll come. Nothing could stop me.
>>2837432>>2837469>>2837743>>2838297You approach Sachi and place a hand on her trembling shoulder. "I'm going to come with you Lady Sachi, my friend. Nothing is going to stop me, not even the devil himself. I'd laugh at such a demon if they dare stop me. You and I shall face this trial together, and only together we shall prevail.""You say some weird things Makoto." You hear a soft chuckle escape her lips as she wipes away the tears from her eyes. "Thank you... Thank you for being by my side, and not coming to school today. After all, I guess it's good for you too, you don't have to see that scary Alice girl at all."You two get in the cop car and drive off. You sit in uncomfortable silence as you drive along to the police station. It's only a ten minute ride, however it feels like an eternity. A weight is lifted upon you as soon as the officer stops the car. He walks out and opens it for the two of you. As you two are led inside the building one of the officers stops you. "I'm sorry I'll have to ask you to wait in the lobby.""This is absurd! I wish to join my underling!" "No Makoto it's okay, the fact that you're here waiting for me is enough." She departs with the officers leaving you alone. You sit down on a chair, looking through some cheap magazine as you wait. It took more than an hour for Sachi to return, face pale. As you get up to approach her she walks over towards you and leans against your shoulder. "I'm tired... Makoto can I...Stay at your house for a little while?" >Of course>Shouldn't you contact the rest of your family?>Write in
>>2838560>Of course.But also:>Shouldn't you call the rest of your family, to let them know you're alright?
>>2838560>>Of course>I would never turn my most trusted lieutenant away.
>>2838560> Of course > Give her a hugShe is leaning on us both literally and figuratively. Might as well try and comfort her with a hug. After we set up a living space for her at our house is it possible to drop by the school to talk to Maki? We don't know where she lives but we know she's an upperclassman. We'd be able to ask her why she spoke weirdly about the bodies. Also Alice wants to talk to us after school. But maybe Sachi needs us to be with her? Can't decide.
>>2838646Supporting this. Also we need to sit her down for a deep heart to heart.
>>2838585>>2838607>>2838646>>2838678You reach out and give the girl another hug, closing your eyes. She is your most important friend after all. She's been with you through thick and thin. "Of course I shall let you stay with me, I am not one to abandon a friend such as you. But first should you not contact your family to let them know you are doing alright?" "Y-yeah... Of course." Her voice sounds silted, almost forced even. "i'll do it when we get to your place." Eventually the two of you were dropped off at your place. You let Sachi into your room while she calls her family, while you wait in the kitchen. Getting something to eat for yourself you look down at your phone. It's 12:00 on the dot. There's still time in the school day. Now that you thought about it you could get into contact with Maki or Alice there. >Go to school>Stay with Sachi>write in
>>2838847>>Stay with SachiThe pitiful mortals at school matter not, compared to our most trusted friend.
>>2838847>Stay with Sachi
>>2838854>>2838859You decide that those pitiful mortals that attend your school are worth nothing now. You wait until Sachi enters the kitchen, leaning against the wall. She smiles weakly over at you before approaching. "Thank you for everything, are you sure you don't want to go back to school?""It matters not, I could miss a day in class! You are far more important, you are my most beloved lieutenant. Both you and Lady liza are under my care. I would throw down my life for you."Sachi smiles up at you, nodding. "Yeah you're right. Besides the further away you are from Alice the better. I didn't want to say anything last night but you two were really scaring me with that weird conversation. I could tell Elizabeth was getting scared too. I mean it's probably safe for you to talk to Elizabeth but... I'd say keep away from her sister." Sachi hugged herself, looking out the kitchen window. You've vowed to spend the day with her, and that's that. it looks like destiny didn't have anything weird for you in store. Yet still, you couldn't get the sneaking feeling that you and Sachi have had this conversation before. Again it's that strange feeling of deja'vu, that crippling nagging sensation. You are assaulted by another headache, like the one from yesterday. And again, another vision. You are in an alley way, Alice standing in front of you. A large, otherworldly blade is in her hands, as she takes a step towards you. You are sitting on your ass, staring up at her. Sighing gently she smiles down at you, offering you a hand. "Good, I'm glad I made it in time. A minute late and you could have ended up as one of those victims. I'm glad I could save your life... Kurogane." In that moment, in that time you knew you could-"Hey Makoto?" You're snapped back into reality by Sachi, who looks rather concerned about you. "Hey are you okay? You're spacing out again." She knocks on your head. "If you'[re really tired we could do something together? I'm not into video games but.. We can play one of those?" >play a video game>Watch a TV show sachi likes>Write in
>>2839037>>Watch a TV show sachi likesMake chunni observations on the plot and characters.
>>2839037>Watch a TV show sachi likes
>>2839039This, both watching a show she likes and making chuuni comments, as long as she finds them more entertaining than annoying.
>>2839039>>2839040>>2839128"Let us watch whatever you want to! I'm sure to enjoy it if it is truly what you wish to see, my dear lady." You decide to shrug off your earlier vision. "Oh what I want to watch. Um... Alright I don't know if you'll like it or not but, sure!" She laughed uneasily as you two made it to the living room. Knowing your family's work schedule you'd be by yourselves until at least ten tonight. so you had plenty of time to spend with Sachi. Turning on the T.V she turned on a random nature documentary. "Ah yes, a tale of predators stalking their prey. I know the feeling. To this day I feel like I'm being hunted, as that prey, trying to out maneuver my vicious foe who wants to dig into my flesh. Tis a sad fate, it is." "Ha ha, you're always so weird Makoto, when did you get this way?""It is my nature, I have always been like this.""Heh, if you say so. I just remember you being more normal as a kid."The two of you continue to watch TV for hours on end. However Sachi always changes the channel once in a while. The choices in shows very from all sorts of genres. From game shows, to dramas,m to reality TV, to even TV marketing shows. None of it had any rhyme or reason.Eventually Sachi got up and headed to the kitchen. She called out from the other side of the room. " Hey it looks like you're all out of tea, could you please go out to the store and get some for me?" >Why of course lady Alice>I don't feel like it>Write in
>>2839232>I am fine, dear lady, I do not wish for more tea.
>>2839232>I do not require more tea, I am quite content. I could request my parents pick some up on their way home, if you so wish, but it is getting quite dark and I do not wish to leave you by yourself. Who else will protect you, after all?
>>2839232Alert! Alert! Do not take your eyes off Sachi. This is depressing levels right here.>>I am fine, dear lady, I do not wish for more tea
>>2839233>>2839249>>2839256She wants some, she's not asking if you do. Saying this just makes you come across as self-centered.
>>2839326He's chunni. Isn't he even just the least bit self-centered, even though he's better than most examples at relating to others?
>>2839233>>2839249>>2839256"I do not require more tea, I am quite content. I could request my parents pick some up on their way home, if you so wish, but it is getting quite dark and I do not wish to leave you by yourself. Who else will protect you, after all?" Her lips twitch as she looks down at her phone. "Yeah but that's so much later than now... I really don't want to wait. I mean I'm the one who really wants the tea you know." She sighs, before smiling at you. "If you're really all that worried about leaving me alone...We can go together. Come on, it's been such a long time since we've gone out on a walk together, come on Makoto~" She hops up off of the couch, seeming to have regained some of her former energy. She grabs hold of your wrist. "I'm going whether you come or not!" She decided to tease, tossing in that last bit.>Go with her>let her wander the dark streets alone by herself>write in
>>2839424>Go with her>Alright, if you must insist.
>>2839424>>Go with her>Alright, if you must insist.
>>2839424>Go with herTogether into the darkness we shall venture my lady.
>>2839424>>Go with her
>>2839424Why is she so insistent on us going out? Why was she looking at her phone? We gotta be on high alert. The event is coming. > Go with her > Send a quick text to your parents where we are headed. Sneak a small knife in your pocket without her noticing. Just in case. I mean with the attack that happened yesterday, can't be too careful, right?
>>2839438>>2839440>>2839529>>2839531"..." You let out a sigh of exasperation on your own. Couldn't she tell this was to protect her? Well, you supposed there was no harm. "Very well, if you insist, but I do say I believe it is a better course of action for us to stay home." "Oh you worry too much." She smiles and skips off ahead towards the door. You do find it a little strange at how chipper she's been acting, especially since she was so dower earlier today because of the recent incident. Still you follow her into the darkness. That's all you can do. Follow her and protect her. You want to be good for something. Helping at least one person gives you a sense of fulfillment. You remember when you stuck to the background before you met Sachi. Because of Sachi you have the strength to stand out more in the first place, become less of a background character. You won't be so bland and boring as you were before. Sachi drags you along through the darkness, deciding to take a short cut through an alleyway to get to the nearest store faster. This was an alleyway you've crossed through so many times. There were no homeless bums or delinquents rummaging around here. Everything was absolutely safe. Staring down at your phone idly you check the time, 7:59. You briefly recall somebody mentioning something about something occurring at 8:00 tonight. As you continues to walk you collided right into Sachi, who appeared to have stopped. "Sachi whatever is the matter? Keep a move on!""Shhhh... M-makoto look." Raiding a hand to her face and pointing forward Sachi draws your attention to a large figure rummaging through the alleyway. It seems to be eating something, from what you can make out, you see fur scattered across the alleyway. From the coloration it seemed to have belonged to a cat of some sort. (Body count +3). The large mass lifted it's head up, appearing to be sniffing around, before bringing it's eyes onto you and Sachi.>Approach it>Sachi run!>Write in
>>2839609I wish you were a little earlier because that could have made us a little more prepared.
>>2839611>>Sachi run!>Sprint off into the night with your loyal lieutenant.
>>2839611>Cheese it!>Run off as fast as you can towards a crowd of people or a police officer, hopefully it'll bug off then.
>>2839614Yeah I was worried I was too late. I was too busy assembling furniture. It's alright. Alice-chan will save us! >>2839611>Trip Sachi then run>Sachi run! >Call out for help while looking for things to obstruct the creature's path

>>2839691>>2839699"Sachi run!" You shout towards the girl as you two run away. You grab onto a trash can and slam it to the ground in hopes of distracting the creature. Because it didn't expect either of you, it's slow in chasing after the two of you. The rush of fear is your biggest motivator, you feel as if you have the stamina of an Olympic runner. Of course that's not the truth but the adrenaline is making you feel that way. "Makoto! We're close to the main streets!" Sachi yells in front of you. You turn to look back and the creature is now gaining speed. Even if you escape you aren't entirely sure if it will stop chasing you. You're sure you can make it to the main street, but will that save you? You feel the need to call for help, but to who?(Good job. If you rolled super low you would have gotten very horribly injured.) >Help me, Alice!>Help Police!>Write in
>>2839761>>Help Police!Alice is of dubious trustworthiness, and we can trust in upstanding officers of the law.

>>2839846True harem route would be cool. Knowing anime though, being indecisive and not route locking could result in BAD END. If we go for the imouto we should be safe. QM-kun would never truly hurt the child would he?
>>2839898It's not indecisive if we decide we want them all.The best chinese cartoons have harem route as TRUE END.
>>2839820>>2839832(I had so many holdups with this update. At first I got a little busy with IRl stuff. Then in the middle of typing the update up I puke all over my keyboard. I spent the past hour cleaning it up so I didn't lose it.It really gave me a scare.)"Help Sachi, Alice! Or I swear I shall destroy this world one thousand times over! I will never forgive you! You flat she witch with barely any meat on her bones!" You shout at the top of your lungs You don't know if she'll hear you, you don't know if she'd even help if you did. But for that moment, you decided to put your trust, your faith in Alice. It was there you saw a figure step out in front of the alleyway. By the shape and frame you knew, it was Alice. "... You're lucky I don't want to let an innocent person in all of this die, Makoto Kurogane. This is the first time you got her caught up in this." Rushing into the ally she runs towards Sachi with an inhuman speed, with equally ihumann strength. She casts one last glance back at you,before dashing off, with a screaming Sachi."Hey wait! Don't leave makoto!"But it was too late, Alice wouldn't stop to help you,she left with Sachi, likely to save her life. You feel yourself trip and fall to the floor. Wincing you turn around staring up at the beast looking before you. It takes a few steps towards you, you can feel it's breath on your face. You feel it, you are probably gonna die. Damn it, maybe if you asked Alice to just save yourself? You close your eyes, accepting your fate."That sure was rude of her huh? She could have at least saved the both of you. Don't worry, I'm not going to leave you to die, Mako."you open your eyes, to see a woman standing on top of a building. A nun, from the looks of thing.Suddenly there was a bright flash of light and several blades appeared in between her fingers. She tossed one of the blades at the creature, p[inning it's arm to the concrete floor. Gracefully she jumped out of the air and landed between you and the beast. Her back was turned to you, but her voice was familiar. "I couldn't just let you die, my dear underclassmen." >Here let me help you!>Let's get away from here!>Write in
>>2840071>Here let me help you!
>>2840071>Thanks, that was close>Let's get away from here!
I'm going to get to sleep. I'm supposed to have plans tomorrow so I might be gone part of the day. However if I still feel sick I might cancel them, thus I'll be able to QM for longer.
Get well soon Shiki!I'm really enjoying the quest even if I'm terrified we're going to have to kill Sachi when we find out she's been orchestrating all of this.
>>2840071Forgot to vote>Here let me help you!We totally weren't afraid!
>>2840071>How do we slay the beast?Time to channel our inner knight errant.
>>2840250This is more romantic
>>2840115>Write in"WHAT IN HELL IS THAT???"Oh man, this was freaky, from SoL chuuni to some modern horror and an endless recursion of time.Hope you get well soon, can't wait to see where this ride takes us.

>first quest>first thread>qm already dyingThe curse is too strong.
>>2840325That was always the plan, to go from SOL shenanigans to something... Weirder.>>2840419>>2840490I'm already feeling a little better, some sleep really helped.
>>2840895Good sleep, a shower and, food will fix just about anything.
>>2841159Yeah I'm just gonna take it easy I'll probably write something up in a bit.
Alright I know I've been slow today but expect some posts at around 10:00 PM central tonight. I'm feeling well enough that I'm not cancelling my plans. Tomorrow I'll be more free.
>>284131310PM CT? This is exactly when I get off work tonight. I am excited that I'll actually be around when you post live.
>>2841313Just take your time and relax, no need to die for a quest. Also I'm sure Sachi is going to die a gruesome death
>>2841921Not if I have anything to say about it. Childhood friend best girl, always and forever.
>>2840095>>2840100>>2840250You stand up, pushing back your fear as you get to your feet. You step up to the plate, walking beside the girl, who you recognize as Maki Makinami. For some reason she's dressed up as a nun as oppose dot her school outfit. While you do find that odd that's hardly the point now, is it? Taking in a deep breath you decide to proclaim. "Brave noble warrior, please,allow me to aid you in this battle." She looks off to the side, raising her eye brow. "Are you sure? I don't know if you could really help me against this thing." "...Please allow me to, I will no back down against any challenge, especially o ne as minor as this!" Despite all of your bluster you were afraid, absolutely terrified. But you couldn't show it. You could see the faint traces of a smile on Maki's face. "You're a brave man, are't you? I respect that. Alright you can help, just be sure to be careful." "First off, brave warrior. How do we defeat such a beast?""Good question. Normal weapons don't affect them. I have the best shot of actually hurting it. It's up to you to distract it to give me a clear shot to take it out. All I need is an opening for it's head." You look around the alley way for something to use to distract the beast. You see an iron pipe and a trash can lid.

>>2842117>>2842121>>2842124>>2842132You grab hold of the trash lid and pipe, using them as your mighty sword and shield. You rush at the beast in a bid to distract it from Maki. Raising the pipe you slam it down on the creature. It turns it's head towards you and snarls. Lifting one of it's hind legs it kicks out towards you, coming into contact with your makeshift shield. You drop the lid and are sent flying, slamming into the nearby wall. You feel your vision begin to dip as the creature extends out a large claw. It flies towards you until Maki jumps in front of you and the beast. Her left side is impaled by it's large grotesque claws, digging deep into her flesh. You hear her coughing violently as her legs wobble. "Got... You..." Lifting up one of her blades she tosses it for the creature's head, immediately impaling it. It cries out in pain, before falling over, growing limp. Slowly it's body begins to fade away into nothingness. "That wasn't... Too hard..." Maki takes a few steps forward before falling flat on her face, slamming into the floor. You crawl over to her, and see her smiling up at you. "Hey you don't seem that hurt... That's good. I would never forgive myself if anything happened..." >Try to help her>Leave her, there's nothing you can do>Write in

>>2842197Just act panicked and they will not ask questions. Be hysterical if we need to i mean we are chuuni to begin with this is very easy to act one.
>>2842197I meant "shirt off" rather than shoe runoff.
>>2842184FUCK SHIT DAMN DICE>Try to help her, apply pressure to wounds>Ask her for advice on what to do>Bring her to the nearest hospital, call 911 or some shit>>2842197We can just either explain it off as a really shitty dog or the murderer that attacked people the day before, obviously this will work out with no problems whatsoever. Also other anon is probably right about the panicked thing, they won't give a shit, they'll probably try to save her life unless they're all demons too. Also I don't know how viable trying to apply pressure to the wound is considering the fact that apparently her whole left side is mauled up, but it'll probably help.
Why weren't the 75, 66, or 83 counted?
>>2842222Yeah I actually have a question about that, QM-kun. How do you count rolls? Do you just take into consideration the first n amount or do you take the best of n rolls?
>>2841921What if her dying is what causes/caused us to reset the world?
>>2842222>>2842226I'm thinking it's probably based on the general trend of the rolls. Most of the rolls were shit, so we got a shit outcome, something like that.>>2842233What if we reset the world every time because, without fail, every single person we love ends up dying a horrible death?
>>2842226>>2842222When I was writing up the post the only high rolls were the 75 and the 66, leaving us with mostly negative rolls. There I compared the severity of the incident based on how low the rolls exactly were. Since I haven't had to deal with a large number of people rolling before I'll treat that a learning experience. From now on I'll take the first three rolls into consideration. A crit fail (1-5) Takes precedent over normal rolls however a crt success (a 95-100) Overrides a crit fail.
>>2842242To be honest, I just assumed that the reason you picked the lowest rolls was because we had no actual experience in combat at all and going at a monster that could stomp our shit in with ease.
>>2842242You can take rolls however you prefer. It just seemed odd to me.
You stare down at her, before shrugging off your school jacket. Very carefully you wrap it around her wounds, making sure to at least stop the bleeding. You reach down to gently hold her up,. wrapping her arm around your shoulder and your arm around her waist, to keep her supported. You feel some of her blood seep through your pure white shirt and onto your skin. "I will not let you die her, Lady Maki. You saved my life so it is time I returned the favor." "... H-heh I haven't had anybody save me in a while. You're a good guy, Mako." She coughs out. You turn your head to see crimson dripping down her lips. Her breathing is ragged,you can only imagine just how intense the pain she was going through was. As soon as she sees your face, she forces a smile. "W-hat you worried about me? I've been hurt worse than this... My body isn't exactly normal any more, so as long as I get immediate attention, I'll live. I'm more worried about looking so uncool in front of you." "I do not believe you. No mortal can take that kind of blow and shrug it off. I shall take you to the hospital for you to reincorporate.">What do you mean?>Nonsense! We need to hurry to the hospital>Write in
>>2842314>Could you perchance define immediate attention?>Probably hurry to the hospital
>>2842316This. Unless it's something we can do, or she knows of a magic healer close by, we still gotta take her to the hospital.
>>2842316"Could you perchance define immediate medical attention?" You ask the girl, beginning to walk. You try your best you keep her supported but truth be told she's heavier than you expected. Then again you've never supported anybody's weight before in your life. Maybe it's just because you're so weak. "... I mean basic medical attention. I need to close my wounds and my body will recover on it's own. Really convenient."She began to cough violent, trying her best to keep up with you. "Thanks for bandaging up my wound Mako. Without you I'd probably die before I made it to the hospital." (Maki reputation +1)"Oh it is no matter. I am not one to abandon their allies in a time of need. A king does not leave his friends to suffer. "After an agonizing twenty minutes the two of you eventually make it to the hospital.You frantically start shouting about how a stranger attacked Maki and how you found her bleeding on the street. Maki remained silent during the whole exchange. Eventually she was rushed to the emergency room and you were left in the waiting room. You looked down at your phone. It was 9:00 at night now. What were you going to do?>Wait for Maki>Call Sachi>Head for home, maybe Sachi's there!>Write in
>>2842314Reading back on this and I realize that some of my post was cut off. It wasn't that important aside from Maki saying her body would recover in about 2 days or so. And saying she wasn't mortal.
>>2842375>Write in a general idea of what we could do.First think about what happened in these days.Then go to the near vending machine and take a coffee.Text our brother, dad&mom and then Sachi. From our Brother we ask him what the heck did he do at school.Dad&Mom if their at home. And for Sachi how about : "Are you OK ?! where are you at the moment and where is Alice ?"If Sachi is in a good situation, she will call us right away. if instead she does not write or does not call immediately, we call her immediately.if we get more messages, we'll just take a look at them. however other calls could arrive. Remain in the waiting room.
>>2842511This is good.We should find Alice after making our calls.
>>2842526I almost forgot, we should ask a nurse or a doctor, how is Maki and if we can go to visit her.
>>2842375>>2842511Supporting. There's probably lots of time for us to do some catching up with others.>Decompress. We've had a hellish day. >Text mom and dad about the situation >Text Sachi and ask if she's safe>Call onii-san and tell him about Maki. Ask if he has anything to do with this and to explain his role of he does. Also >Wait for Maki She saved us. The least we could do is wait for her to reach stable condition and visit with her. (in the future, we need to ask everybody for their numbers. esp. Alice, Liza, and Maki)
>>2842741>Alice>implying she's ever not within earshot
There are times I hate my sleep schedule. I just woke up now. Expect an update in an hour or so.
>>2842511You decide to decompress a bit, think about all of the wild things that have happened to you. It's a lot to take in. First the transfer student threatens to kill you. Then you are assaulted by strange visions. Then you are told you cause the world a great tragedy. dSoon after that Sachi's guardians die, and you're attacked by a monster. Now the one who saved you is on the operating table. Closing your eyes you wonder what was the cause of all of this. After processing everything you decide to ask a nurse how Maki is faring. She says the girl is in stable condition, however they're still operating on her. You can visit when they're sure she's safe.Taking a deep breath you text your parents and ask them if they're home. They say they're still at work and will be until late. Next you text your brother. "Um... Hey bro what's your relationship with Maki Makinami?" You drop all pretenses of your chuuni behavior around him. You can't help but be slightly intimidated by him."She was two years behind me when I used to attend school. We're still friends. What did she give you a hard time when I told her to get your ass in school? Not sorry, you should keep up your attendance record man." "She's in the hospital...""Hang on what the hell happened?""She got attacked." There was a three minute delay between the next response."Stay there, I'll be there after I get off of work." You go to the vending machine and get some canned coffee, opening it up you text Sachi. "Sachi my friend are you unhurt?" Almost the instant after the text you get a call from Sachi."MAKOTO ARE YOU OKAY!?" You pratically hear her scream on the other end."I am unharmed. Tell me, where is your current location?""Um... I'm at the Crawford household right now. Alice took me there." >What happened to you after we seperated?>Let me speak to Alice>Write in
>>2843630>My dear friend, what happened to you after we separated?>Be sure to mention how we totally valiantly fought the monster alongside Maki when she inevitably asks us what happened to us.
Now that the thread's saging I guess I should look back on it a little bit. . How's everybody feeling about the quest so far? I feel like I've been a little rocky in some aspects but still, I feel like I'm doing an okay job. This is doing a lot better than I initially thought. And I appreciate all of you guys for reading an playing along.
>>2843655I'm still liking it. I even made a Twitter account to keep up with when your running.
>>2843647This>>2843655I like it
>>2843655It's pretty good, just stop dying and vomiting and fucking up your sleep schedule.
>>2843655I'm really liking it.Maybe it's 'cause I'm a softboy, but I was genuinely spooked when Alice was introduced and have been consumed by paranoia towards Sachi despite liking her and wanting to trust her. I don't know if this was deliberate or if I'm just crazy, but something about her has caused fear to fester within me. The story's interesting and I can't wait to see where you go with it, but hopefully no heartbreaking twists. >>2843647This, but lets not be afraid to admit our ineffectiveness. It can strengthen our resolve to become stronger so that we can protect our subjects!
>>2843773>forgot my image
>>2843770Yeah I gotta take better care of myself. I'm probably gonna head to bed earlier tonight, in hopes of getting up earlier.
>>2843655I like it, there's not enough chunni in anime quests these days.
>>2842741>(in the future, we need to ask everybody for their numbers. esp. Alice, Liza, and Maki)We need to have them. Also what about creating a chat group with all this ladys ? (If an equivalent of whatsapp exist, we could call it the "knights of makoto")
>>2843647>>2843773"My dearest friend, what happened to you after we separated?"There's a short pause on the other end before Sachi speaks up again. "Um nothing much Alice just took me to her house, she said I could spend the night. I asked her about how she felt abourt you and she said she said you were probably alright. She seemed confidant you'd survive..." There's another short pause. "What happened with YOU?" "I fought valiantly against the beast with Maki. The two of waged war however due to my naivety she was horribly wounded. It was a tragedy brought on by myself. But I shall learn." You take a sip of your coffee, regret in your heart. If only you were stronger the girl wouldn't have been wounded. If you were stronger Maki wouldn't be struggling for her life. "I see... Well as long as you're alright." There's a sign of relief in her voice. >Alice didn't do anything to you did she?>Is there anything else you want to know, Sachi?>Write in
>>2843967>Does Alice have any tea in her house, or should I bring you some?I mean, it'd be a bummer to go through all of this and STILL not get any tea. Plus, what are the chances that we'd be attacked twice in one night?
>>2844003This is great. Do we get exp for completing the quest?It also gives us an excuse to check on her and question Alice. As long she doesn't have tea at least.
>>2844003You're the best anon. Supporting.
>>2844003(I love you guys sometimes.) "Tea. Does Alice possess any?""Uh... I don't know let me ask." Sachi's voice becomes muffled and you hear the two engage in a brief conversation. "Not that she's aware. According to her they just moved in so they don't have a lot of food. Um... Could you please get me some on your way back?""Why of course!" You briefly remember your brother saying he'd be showing up at the hospital. You wonder if he could give you a ride. It's better to be safe after all. "Send me the location and I will arrive once my chariot comes to take me away. I shall see you momentarily, my Lady Sachi." "Yeah... See you." And thus the call reaches it's conclusion. Soon the nurse approaches you, a smile on your face. "Your friend is all patched up. You can see her if you want. But you'll have to keep the visit brief. Only ten or twenty minutes. The girl needs her rest." >See how Maki's doing>Refuse and wait outside>Write in
>>2844157>See how Maki's doing
>>2844157>See how Maki's doing.That other option though.
>>2844157>>See how Maki's doingIt would be churlish not to
>>2844162>>2844163>>2844165You are led to the room that Maki is currently staying in. As soon as you enter the room you see the girl laying down on the bed, her eyes closed tightly. Although she's covered in a hospital gown, you can see some of the bandaging wrapped around her chest poking out through the openings in her garments. You walk next to her bed, staring down at her somberly."Oh dearest Maki, you're hanging on the balance between life and death now. Oh how careless of a mistake have I made? It is my fault you're suffering such as that. If only I could do anything ot make you awaken from your slumber. Such as a prince kissing a princess. Oh but such a thing does not happen in the real world. Oh if there was anything I could do!""You'd go as far as to kiss me? I'm flattered but what would our classmates think about me kissing an underclassmen? Oh I know god would never forgive me for taking advantage of your good will." Slowly she opened her eyes, giving you a wry smile as she attempted to push herself up in bed. Wincing in pain she eventually steadied herself, giving you a playful wink. "Hey I told you I would let something like this kill me... Sorry I got my blood all over you.""Oh it is fine, anything to save the life of one who saved my own.""Heh... You've got honor, I respect that. So I bet you've got plenty of questions? Ask away." >Ask anything
>>2844293>Are you an angel, sent from heaven?
>>2844293>Do you know anything about "guardian angels"?
>>2844293>your number, we need to stay in contact.
>>2844293>What was that foul demon you courageously slew?>Did mere fate and happenstance draw us together? Or were you on constant vigil, guarding over the city?>What did you mean by not being mortal?Damn it I just spent the last 20 minutes trying to make up some clever and witty question that also doubled as a shitty pick-up line after seeing >>2844297 but I got fucking nothing.
>>2844357Fuck excuse the name that was another thread.
I hate to call it in early but it's storming pretty bad outside right now. My power went out once already so there's a chance it could go out again. Again I will also be busy for most of tomorrow. I'll probably be starting again late tomorrow evening or I'll just start again on thursday. Would I be jumping the gun a bit if I started a new thread,or does this one have a little more life?
>>2844403It's on page 4 and /qst/ usually moves pretty slowly so you could use this one for a while.
>>2844347Alright I got it. Witness my glorious masterpiece in all of its shitty glory.>Do you use magic? Because every time I look at you, everyone else disappears>Where do you hail from? Because in my eyes, you're from out of this worldAlso made them both related to eyes because demon eye haha fuck why am I such a shitty person
>>2844414Yeah that's what I thought. Just wanted to make sure.
>>2844416I love you anon. Keep making these awful shitty puns.
>>2844157>Alice Crawford >Moved from England>Doesn't have tea I sense shennanigans
Alright finally gonna make a post in a little bit. Sorry for keeping you guys waiting
>>2844297>>2844307>>2844335>>2844347>>2844416You decide to ask Maki a few questions, clear the air and get them out of the way."Very well Maki, first thing's first... Are you an angel?" She blinks, before laughing. "Is that a pick up line? Nope I'm not an actual angel. I wish I was, but sadly I'm only a daughter of god. Or should I say the daughter of a man of god. It's rare to find devote Catholics like us in Japan, but I assure you we exist.""I see, shall we exchange numbers? I feel it is something necessary, for us to communicate with each other in the future." She smiles and holds out her hand. You hand her ypour precious phone and she enters her number, tossing it back to you. "Do you have any more questions?" "Well, this may sound like a fool's question but do you know anything about Guardian angels?' "Well I've never met an actual angel in my life, but I personally believe they could exist." "What was that foul demon you courageously slew?""... Heh I was waiting for you to ask that." She leaned back in her seat, closing her eyes. "My father calls that creature a demon. Although, other people have met call it the universal term "Phantasm". It's more like a yokai from our country than a biblical demon. They're said to be creatures born from people's negative emotions. Whatever it is though, it's my job to exterminate it. And make sure nothing happens to people like you.""Did mere fate and happenstance draw us together? Or were you on constant vigil, guarding over the city?""About that..." She chuckles lightly, rubbing her cheek. "After I heard that your friend's aunt and uncle were last night's murder victims, I decided to um... Well stalk you guys, to put it lightly. It was my duty to make sure nothing bad happened to the either of you." "So you followed us around all day?""Not ALL day, but most of the day, yeah."" By chance, what exactly did you mean by not being mortal?"She flashes you a toothy grin, eyes locking onto yours. "I'm special, you see. When I was a girl, around ten years old, I awoke to a special ability. I don't know exactly what to call this ability other than a... "Soul blade." It's an uncreative name but I'd like to see you come up with one better." She takes in a deep breath before going on. "This ability allows me to summon those swords that you saw before. They're a representation of my soul, my life energy. Every time I summon them I lessen my life span. Not by much, but it adds up with multiple uses. In turn they give me stronger than average strength, healing ability, and speed. I know all of this is a lot to take in, so take your time.">I don't believe any of this>Ask about the murders>Write in
>>2846817>"Did one of these demon's kill sachi's parents?"
>>2846817This>>2846835Also applaud her for sacrificing her life to protect people.
>>2846817>Hah, "Soul Blade"? That's all you could come up with? My saviour, indulge me in this one instance, for this is my specialty. Perhaps Sabres of Mortality? Nay, perhaps Twilight Swords would be more apt, considering you live on the boundary between life and death when you utilize these weapons. Or maybe even Ethereal Hope, or Evanescent Edges! Ephemeral Light, Demonic Bane, the possibilities go on and on!

Ephemeral Light, Demonic Bane, the possibilities go on and on!"You laugh, folding your arms. "You sure are a spirited one aren't you?" She sighs before mulling it over. "I like twilight sword though. So let's go with that. Not that the name exactly matters."You nod your head before, lowering it slightly. "I... Applaud you for sacrificing a little bit of your life every time you want to help someone. You are a brave warrior indeed. I'm proud to fight by your side." "Well, it's not that big of a deal. I figure at the rate I'm going I've got at least until my mid fifties. And even then that's just an estimate, I could live longer." She forces you a smile, before looking away. "Those... Demons, did they kill Sachi's aunt and uncle?" "Probably, I don't know. I'm starting to believe somebody's orchestrating the phantasms in this town. But I'm not sure. It's a horrible case. I just wish I had somebody helping me.">Sorry I cannot help>Allow me to aid you>Write in
>>2846917>Allow me to aid you
>>2846917Screw you Alice, we're getting fucking involved.>Allow me to aid you. Uh, what exactly would helping you entail?
>>2846917>Allow me to aid you, if only to payback what you have sacrificed for me.
>>2846931I mean, does she just expect us to NOT hunt down the monsters that killed our best friend's aunt and uncle? Besides, we need to repay Maki for saving us, even if it is her job.
>>2846919>>2846922>>2846931You know your answer. There was only one option. "I will help you but... How exactly do I help?""You help me investigate I can't do anything like this. Be my eyes and ears and report back to me whenever you learn any information about the case. Tell me if you meet any twilight blade users or if you see anybody suspicious. Right now though... I want to get some rest okay? I'll see you later, Mako. You're a good kid." As you leave Maki's room you see your older brother standing in the hallway, raising an eyebrow as he sees you."You look like hell. How's maki doing, little bro." >She will survive>It took you long enough>write in
>>2846954>She's better than she looks.>So what happened with you tonight?
>>2846957>>2846958>>2846960"She's um... Better than she looks.She's going to uh... Survive." In front of Takashi, your brother, you just lose all composure. You can't look him in the eye. He's just that grander than you, just that much better than you. Something about him transcends humanity itself. At least that's how you always felt ever since you were kids. "um... What happened with you tonight?"He pushes up his glasses, the glass shining in the light. "I was at work all day. I got held up a bit after work. You know how it is. Shit let me take you home alright?"You two walk over towards the car. You feel absolutely exhausted and feel like going to bed. However you promised Sachi the tea. >Go home and get rest, Sachi will understand>Get Sachi her tea
>>2847001>Get Sachi her teaFor Mako is an honorable man!
>>2847001>Get Sachi her tea
>>2847001>Get Sachi her teaAnything for best girl.
Been trying to make a post but I'm tired. I'm gonna be way more active tomorrow. Night.
>>2847001>Not yet bro, I need to make a pickup at the store. Won't take too long.
>>2847001> By the way, I know we've been pretty distant the past few years. With what's been going on the past few days, I've realized that life is fleeting and if anything were to happen to you or me, I wanted to tell you my true feelings. I love you Takashi. You're the best brother I've ever had. >Fist bump
>>2847386I'm all for bromance, but I'm not sure we're open enough, and we definitely don't seem to be confident enough, to voice a desire to be closer.
>>2847489Yeah, but seing sachis uncle and aunt die and almost seeing maki die must have made us put life into perspective a little.
>>2847502Maybe we could tone it down a little bit
>>2847502WWe on about their deaths, but I get what you mean. I was suggesting that we coul tone it down like >>2847616 said.
>>2847743>>2847616You're probably right. It does seem a little exaggerated.
I woke up earlier but I had to go out for a bit. Will go live again after I eat.
>>2847022>>2847027>>2847031"Hey Takashi... Can we stop somewhere? I want to um... Pick up some tea for Sachi.""Oh Sachi... I heard about what happened to her aunt and uncle. You should take care of her right away." His voice sounds distant, almsot detached as if he cares more about what he's going to eat for dinner. Without speaking another word to you he turns his back and begins walks away. Now you had the chance to finally say something to him. "U-um Takashi I know life is fleeting and horrible things have been happening so..." You stumble on your words as you try so desperately to connect with your brother. He turns and stares at you dully. "What is it?" He speaks coldly, a hand tucked into his pocket. "If you've got something to say you can just say it.""Well I just wanted you to know that..." You trail off, looking at the floor. For once you are unable to speak your feelings. "Look, if it's nothing let's just pick up the tea. The sooner we get home the sooner you can rest." You two head towards the nearest convenience story. Due to your state, Takashi picks up the tea for you. He drives you to Alice's place, following the directions Sachi texted you, and parks the car. As you step out you notice how nice Alice's neighborhood is. Liza wasn';t lying when she said their father was Rich. You walk over towards the door and ring the doorbell suddenly Liza opens the door, face bright with joy. Just as she's about to greet you, she notices the blood on your shirt. "EEEEK! Mister Makoto Are you okay!?">I'm fine this is just dye. >I've had a harrowing night>Write in
>>2848274>Worry not my lady, come we have much to discuss with your sister.
>>2848274Dang, that hurts. I hope we have a chance to do some proper bonding with him at some point.This >>2848289 is good
Hmmm blood on our shirt? Thats no good...
>>2848289"Worry not my lady, I have much to discuss with your sister.""Um... With Alice? What do you want to talk about are you sure you're okay?"You reflect on how odd you must look, covered in Maki's blood after having carried her. It's a good thing you have a spare uniform stashed away at home, as all students do. "I am just fine. But really,I must speak with Alice.""Alright... She is currently residing in the library.""Very well, can you lead me there my dear lady?""Sure!" She forces a smile as she leads you to the reading room. There you see Alice sitting on a chair, a book in hand as she hums to herself. She looks up upon noticing you, and closes her tome. "It'sMoby Dick, quite a fascinating read. About a man consumed by obsession, the obsession of hunting his prey. I'm not surprised to see you still alive." >You have a lot of explaining to do>Where's Sachi>write in
>>2848501>"Where is Sachi?" in the calmest voice we can muster
>>2848501>Where's SachiThat foreshadowing doe>Well you needn't fear that I'll put my subjects at risk for my own sake
>>2848505>>2848529>>2848534>>2848535(Again sorry for being so slow, and not making lengthy posts. I've had IRL stuff to deal with these past few days.) You calm your breathing, trying not to show Alice any hint of fear. She was still not your ally, and thus a potential enemy. you knew she wasn't to be trusted, she could secretly be holding Sachi hostage for all you know. "Where is Sachi?""..." She bites her lip as she turns her gaze away from you. "You always seem to worry about her. More than anybody else you worry about her. You have no need to fret,I would never do anything to harm her, even to get at you. I never want to harm an innocent, even though you're so willing to. I might have threatened your life but trust me, I'm no evil master mind. Shes in the living area.""Many thanks, I shall be off to see her now." You turn to leave the room before Alice's voice stops you. "That';s all you are going to leave it at? You don't have anything else to say to me, Kurogane?">I do not wish to be enemies>You are my enemy, I have nothing to say to you>Write in
>>2848718Checking on sachi is a matter of more importance than hearing from Alice about all the bad things we've done/will do for the millionth time. Also, best get that tea to her quick.
>>2848718>I do not wish to be enemiesBut leave it at that. We've got tea to deliver and I don't feel like her and muh gorrilion betrayals are gonna budge anytime soonAnd there's no need to be sorry,IRL stuff comes first
>>2848718For now but the poor girls been waiting on tea for hours.
>>2848718Switching to this >>2848748
>>2848718>What's there to say? You seem rather set in your ways.
>>2848720>>2848748>>2848757"I have nothing to say to you for now. Sachi has been waiting for her tea for hours upon hours.I feel now. Besides...." You continue to walk away from Alice not looking back. "You seem rather set in your ways. I doubt there's much of anything I could say to you to get you to trust me.""... It's not that I wish to distrust you... " You could hear a small crack in her voice as she says those words. "But I suppose it's better this way. After all I have done nothing but push you away this time." You exit the room and approach Elizabeth who awkwardlyapproaches you, grabbing a hold of your hand. "Um...Mister Makoto...Miss Sachi has been worried about you all day. She was relived when you called. Although I do say she's a rather picky girl.""Whatever do you mean." "She was rather insistant that she did not want the tea we had supplied in our house. She wanted something more eastern rather than western." The girl gives a shrug of her shoulders before eventually leading you towards the living area. There you could see Sachi, watching Television>Loudly announce your presence.>Sneak up on her>Write in.
>>2849036>loudly (and dramatically) announce our presence.n
>>2849036I actually wrote up a much longer post before but my computer crashed and I lost it. RIP.
>>2849036>Sneak up on herSome light bullying will help take her mind off of things>>2849042F
>>2849036>Sneak up on her and loudly announce your presenceI'VE COME TO YOUR AID M'LADY!
>>2849036>You're tea m'lady
Been staring at the screen for a while but I can't write anything this moment. Fall is just starting and that's allergy season for me, that and IR:L stressors have kept e from posting as much as I'd like to. Hopefully in a day or two I'll be able to post more. Thank you all for still keeping up with this, and putting up with my inconsistent schedule.
>>2849193Dang I know how shitty fall allergies are man don't get too stressed.
>>2849213Yeah it recently hit me like a truck like a day or two ago.
>>2849234It always gets me when the dry winds start blowing towards me in mid fall.
I'm gonna take a break today.I'll start again tomorrow on Saturday, 4:00 PM.
>>2850428Take your time man.
>>2849050>>2849074You sneak up towards the couch the girl was sitting on. You were like a lion to an unsuspecting gazelle. A beast ready to pounce on it's prey and devour it. And pounce on it you did. Your arms dart out towards your target, and you roughly grab Sachi's shoulders. "I'VE COME TO YOUR AID M'LADY!""EEEK!" The girl shrieks in terror and literally jumps out of her seat. She stumbles before regaining her footing and turning around. Her surprise is replaced by overwhelming joy, as tears start to form at the pits of her eyes. She rushes over towards you, and give you a tight embrace. "Makoto! I was so scared I'd never see you again!">I appear whenever you are in danger>Ha as if anything could kill me>Write in
>>2853477>Have more faith that your king will protect youThis way we can look cool AND convey that she can rely on us
>>2853477>>I appear whenever you are in danger
>>2853536>>2853629"Have more faith that your king will protect you. Ha! You and Liza are my underlings are you not? I will make sure the enemy doesn't lay their paws upon you."Sachi let go of you, wiping away her tears. "Thank you... I know I can trust you Makoto! It's been like that ever since we were kids. You always protected me.,.. In your strange way." Wasn't it always the other way around? You remember it was because of her kind words that you became the way you are now. You'd be a nobody if it weren't for Sachi."I'm glad you both are unharmed. Mister Makoto, are you to take Miss Sachi home with you for the night?""I say the two of them should spend the night here." A voice cuts through the room like a bitter knife. You turn to see Alice hanging in the hallway. "It would be mutually beneficial. I can keep an eye on Kurogane and the two of you can rest easy no phantasms will assault you at night." >No I'd rather stay at home>Safety in numbers I suppose>Write in
>>2853881>No I'd rather stay at homeI will rather take my chances with a hundred of those beast than spend a night under the same roof as you, Alice Crawford.
>>2853881>Safety in numbers I supposeAlice looming over us is sure to make it difficult to feel comfortable, but it'll be safer for Sachi.>Wasn't it always the other way around? You remember it was because of her kind words that you became the way you are now. You'd be a nobody if it weren't for Sachi.Is anyone else worried that our "guardian angel" is changing our history? Maybe we should have a chat with Sachi about our childhood and see if our memory matches.
>>2853881>No I'd rather stay at homeAlice might kill us in our sleep or some shit. I don't trust her. We should defenitely spend the night with Sachi though, to make sure shit doesnt hit the fan.>>2853967>Is anyone else worried that our "guardian angel" is changing our history? Maybe we should have a chat with Sachi about our childhood and see if our memory matches.Fuck, you raise a good point. Next time we see Maki we should bring that up.
>>2854129She is dangerous, but so far it seems like she'll go back to trying to kill us if we give her a reason. Plus we REALLY couldn't do shit if we got attacked and she'd just kill us know if she wanted to.
>>2853881>Safety in numbers I suppose
>>2854200>killing us right in front of witnesses
>>2854221She hasn't exactly hidden tne fact that she's willing to kill us, so yeah. She seems more likely to challenge us to a duel.
>>2854247I mean, she would kill us in an instant, I have no doubt, but she cares about Sachi and her sister, and wouldn't kill us in front of them.
>>2854255That doesn't mean she'd be duplicitous about it.
>>2854266I'm not saying she would be, just that she wouldn't kill us when they are around. Remember how she was gonna kill us, but didn't because we were with sachi and liza at wcdonalds?
>>2854285Yeah, she'd ask them to leave or find us when we're alone. It's not likely that she'd kill us in our sleep.
>>2854305You might be right about the sleeping part, but I still think staying with Alice is a bad idea.
>Steps away for a bit and comes back to a full split 50/50 voteBear with me as I wait a little while longer fora tie breaker/Think of a way to settle this.
>>2854336roll a 1d2, 1 for staying home 2 for staying with alice
>>2854316That's fair, I don't think she'll cause any intentional harm at this point and that phantasms are a much realer threat.
dice+1d2Well let's roll.
>>2854345I don't think there are so many phantasms that we'll get attacked a second time on the same night. it seems unlikely in my eyes.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2854374Fuck I fucked it up.
>>2854374It goes in Options not in Comment.
>>2854379>2, staying the night with Alice. "... I will stay the night but under one condition. I stay in the same room as Sachi!""M-makoto, you don't need to go that far! It's so indecent!" Her cheeks turned red as she placed her hand on them. "Boys and girls shouldn't share the same room!""Do not worry miss Sachi, You shall stay in my room. You'll be safe. I promise I shall keep you safe! I trust my sister!" Liza rushed over towards Sachi, tugging on her sleeve playfully. "Um... If you say so. Makoto, I'll text your brother and ask him to get you a fresh change of clothes..." She beams over at you, her earlier apprehension completely gone. "If you say so, my lady but whose room shall I stay in?" "You can stay in the guest room... Next to my room." Alice brushes her hair, smiling at you darkly. ".. Of course I jest. You can stay on the couch... Unless you trust staying so close to me. I told youI wouldn't harm you personally, did I not? That is unless you're thinking about taking advantage of that closeness in that situation." Was that.... A joke coming from her?>Ha I will keep an eye on you, I will stay as close as I can>The couch is fine>Write in
>>2854504>The couch is fine
>>2854504>Ha I will keep an eye on you, I will stay as close as I canOkay, this time I just find it amusing that we'll probably spend the whole night waiting for her to attack instead of sleeping.
>>2854504>Ha I will keep an eye on you, I will stay as close as I canI-I'm totally not afraid or anything! We can even sleep in the same room for all I care!
>>2854504>Ha I will keep an eye on you, I will stay as close as I canWe take jokes very seriously, Alice.
>>2854525>>2854570>>2854611(Sorry for being so long. I was getting burnt out for a little bit but I think just now I got my energy again.) "Ha I will stay as close to you as I can you foul devil! I won't back down to you she devil!" You tilt your head back, standing firmly in place as you antagonize the 'she devil'. You might as well keep a watch on Alice for as long as you can. If she was going to keep an ever vigilant watch on you you would keep an ever vigilant watch on her. You would never let her out of your sights. Her lips curl into a smirk as she approaches you,leaning in forward, her eyes locking onto yours. "Oh you're going to be brave are you? After you get your spare change of clothes do come to my room. I'm sure there's much we can do to keep ourselves entertained if we stay up all evening. And do take a shower, the scent of blood is rather harsh on my delicate nose. I'm certain your friend and my sister feel the same." She turns away from you and prepares to leave the room, before turning her head backwards. ":I do look forward to it."You wait in the lounge with Sachi and Liza until your brother arrives. You quickly grab your belongings, a spare school uniform and a set of pajamas. You took a quick shower,k leaving the door unlocked. You specifically left it unlocked. You didn't expect something to happen, but you kind of hopes, what with everything that was going on you wanted something ANIME to happen. You wanted a girl to walk in on you, not for any perverted purposes but like just for the sake of comedy. Yeah comedy that's how you justified it. However... Nothing happened. Deciding to cut your losses you put on your pajamas and headed towards Alice's room.There you found her dressed in a pair of Pajama pants and a T-shirt. She's laying on her bed, leaning on the bed frame. "It took you long enough. Well let's entertain each other Kurogane. Is there anything you want to say to me or ask of me?">Write in
>>2854789>"Are you from the future?"
>>2854789>Tell me about my past incarnations

>>2854815*what we did

>>2854789Sorry for all the one post IDs, but phoneposting.>So, Crawford, are you a Twilight Blade user as well? Or do you still use that old-fashioned name of "Soul Blade"?>My dear antagonist, tell me, what are some of your hobbies? What do you do for fun? Did you enjoy your time back at home in the British Isles? Why did you move to Japan? How's your family life? Where are your parents?>Are you of nobility? Did you ever live in a castle? Because you rule my lifeAlways gotta throw in the shitty pick up line. I would also like to get to know more about her. Of course, supporting past reincarnations anon.
>>2855231Also, just for shits and giggles.>Our math teacher is kind of a demonic whoreson, isn't he? Did you understand that unit circle wizardry he was talking about?
>>2855231>>2855235Also supporting, she probably doesn't expect us to have a casual conversation
(I apologize I was gone all day. I hate to admit but I was pretty much sleeping all day because of allergy medication)>>2854799>>2855231"Tell me about my past incarnations." You decide it'd be best to know. What were you like, what kind of person were you like? She turns on her bed, to get a better look at you. "That's a very complicated question. In most timelines you were the same. I suppose one could call us friend in a vast amount of them.In the last world line I never left your side... Until the end. I regret leaving you to your own devices. I thought for sure in that world you wouldn't decide to bring about that tragedy. Or maybe there was nothing I could have done..." A bitter sigh escapes her lips. "So, Crawford, are you a Twilight Blade user as well? Or do you still use that old-fashioned name of "Soul Blade"?" She grins, crawling across her bed and hovering over the edge ever so slightly. "So you still go with the name twilight blade do you? Yes I am one. Do you want to see my blade first hand? Oh I promise I won't use it to rend your flesh." She chuckles, covering her mouth slightly. "My dear antagonist, tell me, what are some of your hobbies? What do you do for fun? Did you enjoy your time back at home in the British Isles? Why did you move to Japan? How's your family life? Where are your parents?"She seems to take a while to process your long series of questions. She is completely caught off guard that you're initiating in casual conversation. "Heh... My hobbies include reading and watching plays. You've gotten me to read manga on occasion. I honestly don't remember my time back at home, I've been here so long, from my prospective of course. I believe my sister told you why we moved here already. As for my parents, they';re late with with work. They'll be back long after we sleep.... Assuming we don't stay up the entire night.""Are you of nobility? Did you ever live in a castle? Because you rule my life."".... Now thats a new one." She ran a hand through a strand of hair. "Our math teacher is kind of a demonic whoreson, isn't he? Did you understand that unit circle wizardry he was talking about?""If you need help understanding math properly I could give you a full crash course. I have at ;east a college understanding sol I can likely teach better than him at this point. That is if the world does not loop again." She pauses, before staring at you again. "So what do you say... Do you wish to see my twilight blade?">No I have no desire to.>Go ahead show me!>Write in
>>2857056Sorry I didn't mean to take so long. If I was conscious most of the day I would have said something.
