You have Nariko firmly grasped in your arms as she slowly recovers from what just happened. You have no idea how taxing this little ordeal was for her, but you hope she’s good now. Coming back from regaining the memories of your whole life all at once should probably be physically mindblowing or give her even more brain damage, but what do you know? Flame magic is flame magic!Your favorite homeless girl slowly opens her eyes. She stares up you with wonder and starts caressing your face… It feels very nice. Her hands slowly move upwards to your hair… “I’ve always been meaning to ask, but do you brush your hair? It’s not like I don’t like it, it’s simply something on my mind for a long time.” New Nariko sounds rude already, saying that about your hair!“Look who’s talking.”Nariko touches her hair absentmindedly. “I must look shameful. Apologies.” She blushes. This feels more awkward than it should be, especially with the others in the room. Oh yeah, there’s other people in the room. “Nariko, please tell me you remember us!” Amelia appears next to you out of nowhere.“I feel like my mind is slowly re-adjusting, a few minor aches here and there, but yes I do. How could I possibly forget all the times you helped me when I was a helpless idiot?” Nariko gives Amelia a demure smile.Amelia is beyond bubbly – she’s making a stupid expression like she used to do before. “Hehehe…” So dumb it made Nariko laugh. Yu Yan walks up and bends down low to Nariko. “Oh thank god you’re just normal! I wasn’t prepared to deal with a snobby bitch attitude.”“Snobby? …Though now that you mention it, I do want to get rid of these rags.” Nariko looks at her clothes with disdain. “Could you carry me to my apartment, dear Ando? You know where it is, don’t you? I could pay for a taxi if you are tired.”“Ehm… What did you just call me?” Did she just call you Ando and not Johnny?“And what’s up with carrying you there, you lazy cow? You need to shred some weight, you know? I said that like five times now, hello?”“Dear Ando’s arms are not only comfortable, but I do feel a little light-headed right now. I have no desire to risk my health not a moment further. I would assume the Judge entity agrees with me.” Nariko starts getting comfortable on your chest. Part of you likes this a lot.Athelone bows, but there’s something about it you can’t place. Something almost mocking. Constance doesn’t say anything, she just recalls Athelone and gives everyone a sunny smile.
>>2872032Meanwhile, Nariko gives Yu Yan a narrowed glare.“…And I won’t tolerate more petty insults, short one. You can’t take advantage of me now that I’ve regained my senses.” This gets the latter stomping!“S-short one?! I’m not short! I’m just tightly packed! And that’s playing low, Nariko!”“Of course it’s low. Rather fitting for someone of your level, hmmm?” Nariko is cruel! Cruel!“Cut it out, you two.” You stop these two in their tracks before they start throwing real insults! They both give you a guilty look before turning to silent glares at each other. At least they’re quiet about it now. “W-wait, aren’t we taking this too lightly? Nariko just regained her memories! She should rest before her head explodes! And more importantly, she should tell us what happened to her!” Amelia brings everyone back to the topic at hand.Nariko casually raises a hand up to Amelia. “Do not underestimate me, Amelia. If I wasn’t capable of doing it, I wouldn’t suggest it in the first place.”“Did Johnny’s stubbornness rub off on you or are you just being a dummy on purpose?” Amelia has none of it. Hey, who is she calling stubborn? You’re pretty reasonable most of the time! That bad spell of decisions ended a long time ago, and you made sure of it! What do you do? >Take everyone to Nariko’s apartment! A nice trip for the whole family! She’s been gone from there for like a month, hasn’t she? Who knows what sort of state the place is in?!>Go with Nariko to her apartment alone while the others go and check on Nina. You feel like your girlfriend is not ready to see you just yet, but needs the companionship.>Tell the girls to go with Nariko to her apartment. You need to check on Nina right now. As much as you want to go with Nariko, what happened to Nina is your responsibility.>Take Nariko to your apartment. She needs to rest and answer some questions.>Write In.

This rule doesn't apply to the last reply of the day.Votes that require a dice roll are counted until 10 minutes have passed, so we can speed the process. Rolls are counted until 10 minutes have passed.
>>2872040Dice Mechanic (Up for Balance)We always roll 1d100s!I use the average (the mean) of the 4 best rolls plus a modifier depending on Johnny’s stats (Knowledge, Courage, etc.) for the quest. The degree of Success will be determined by the difficulty I specify for the action or prompt compared to the result. The stat based modifier is based in the level of Johnny’s stats (+10 per level not counting the first one). If there are less than 4 rolls I’ll do the math with the ones I have. For example:>Johnny punches Howie! [Hard Roll][Athletic Based]Equation:(Roll 1 + Roll 2 + Roll 3 + Roll 4 + [Stat Based Modifier]) / (Number of Dices Rolled (Max. 4)) = Result!Rolling over a 95 is a critical strike and ignores the other rolls! In the same vein, rolling 5 or under means a critical failure (Only for hard rolls on)…The difficulty of the roll is tied with the effectiveness of the action, in other words, the harder the option the better the result for the fight!Don’t forget at the end of the day this is a Story-driven quest! So what the prompts are describing is more important than the difficulty of the rolls are for the results in a fight.We will roll after the voting is done!

“Hey, who are you calling stubborn? But they’re right, you aren’t going anywhere like this. You need a good rest back home.” You lay down the law and Amelia nods furiously in agreement!“I must disagree, dear Ando. I—”Yu Yan puts her hand on Nariko’s shoulder and leans in to whisper loudly enough that the rest of you hear. “Just like your second plate in every meal, you should let this go.” You stand up and bridal carry a red-faced Nariko in your arms. Yu Yan was right, she’s quite heavy! Perhaps you aren’t in shape for this? Either way, too late to change your mind. “Don’t worry, Ms. Nariko. A healthy girl is a cute girl! That’s what Mister Calamity told me!” Constance gives Nariko some sage advice from Dr. Calamity, minus the creepy laughing. The memory of the good doctor who got you your part-time cleaning job, lying barely alive in the hospital bed, flashes vividly through your head. How is he still doing up there in his room? Asking Nurse Kata about him would be a good idea for next time, you think.“Before we go, Constance, thank you for everything. You’re a very nice girl for sticking with us so far.” You owe Constance a lot. If she wasn’t on your side to help you, things might have been grim for the past month.“We will be always in debt to you! Thanks!” Amelia bows respectfully. “Then we’ll always be friends! I don’t like debts!” Constance is all rainbows now. “Let’s play something next time though!”“You got it.” You would give her a thumbs up, but Nariko is too heavy for you to rely on just one arm.“Yeah, your creepy monster nurse aside – you are the shit, Constance.” Yu Yan grins and taps her head a few times.“Thank you.” Nariko keeps her gratitude simple “I was serious about making her walk, dude. Weight. Loss.” Yu Yan whispers to your ear as the gang leaves the room… And so the four of you walked back home through the summer heat. Yeah that includes Nariko. Yu Yan insisted too much to ignore her, and it certainly didn’t have anything to do with your arms barely resisting your OG hobo’s weight… The chat home was basically banter exchange between Nariko and Yu Yan that slowly started to die out the closer you got to your apartment. You finally arrive home and Nariko drops unceremoniously on your couch. “What I have done to my body…?” Nariko gasps out as she’s catching her breath, one hand fanning her face. Yu Yan tries to say something but Nariko holds up her other hand to interrupt her. “That was a rhetorical question. Do not answer that.”“Here, have some water.” Amelia gets Nariko a glass of water from your kitchen.“Thank you…” Nariko drinks it empty in seconds, like her life depends on it.
>>2872391“Well, it’s time for you to answer some questions, right?” Amelia is dying for answers while you keep your curiosity hidden.“Yes. You’ve been living with us for a month without any past to speak of. And now you have your life back along with answers.” You nod with your sister.“I have some questions of my own for everyone else too, but I suppose I can save them for later.” Nariko smirks fearlessly. What could she possibly want to know from you? What do you ask first? (Select two.) >“What do you think of us now?”>“How did you get your flame?”>“How did you lose your flame?”>“What are you planning to do now?”>”What happened with your parents?”>Write In?
>>2872398>“What are you planning to do now?”>"Why were you with white flames."
>>2872398>“How and why did you get your flame?”>”What happened with your parents?”
>>2872398>“How did you lose your flame?”>“What are you planning to do now?”Important questions for now. We can ask about the others later.
“Before we move onto the big questions, however… I’m in need a shower. Amelia, could you be so kind as to lend me a brush?”“No.” Amelia responds immediately, folding her arms at Nariko’s dismayed expression. “I still remember what happened to the last one.” Didn’t Amelia give it to Nariko? What did she do to it?Yu Yan elbows you sister. “Don’t be such a cheap-ass. I’m sure Nariko can buy you a new one later.” And so you all anticlimactically waited for Nariko to be done with her stupid shower. She comes out looking absolutely… the same. No matter how she prepares herself, she’s still the same girl to you. “How do I look?” Nariko radiates a smug aura!“The same.” You shrug.“I agree.” Yu Yan shrugs, copying you.“A-are you two blind…?” Amelia is deeply confused.You can tell Nariko is a little hurt by your comments, though she brushes it off rather quickly.“No, it’s alright. It doesn’t have the same effect if I’m still using these rags.” Nariko tries to convince herself she’s not the problem. Still as adorable as ever.“But those rags help hide your fat stomach!”“Why is it so fun for you to make fun of me…?” That sounded like old Nariko. “A-anyway! What happened to your parents, Nariko?” Amelia asks the first question without hesitating. Weren’t you supposed to ask first?“They are overseas of course… They’re always busy. Always have been.” Nariko states it like a fact of life.“Busy doing what?” Yu Yan asks.Nariko closes her eyes and waves her hand to the side, tilting her face up. She doesn’t look like your OG hobo anymore. She looks like how you would imagine a rich noble girl would probably appear to others. “Second rate art for dirty foreigners to enjoy. Vain and tainted art deliberately made lacking just to gain wealth from pretenders and the easily-fooled. Sometimes they come ‘visit’ me over the holidays every two years or so, though ‘occupy my apartment and complain about everything’ is more apt. That’s it, really. I don’t need them anyway…” She scoffs haughtily, trying to sound nonchalant. Her voice still drips with scorn.“Are you fucking kidding me? Of course you needed them; you ended up in the streets alone!” This somehow makes you angry, but you’re not exactly surprised by what you know.“Dear Ando… I…”“Those two need some serious spanking!” Amelia is furious too.“Guess ‘it’s better than nothing’ doesn’t really apply to any of your parents, huh?” Yu Yan laughs it off. “Dear Ando and Amelia, what kind of people are your parents?” Right, Nariko has no idea about your family at all… She must have some vague ideas of how bad your dad is, but Amelia’s… and your mom…
>>2873062You two briefly explain your dads are basically pieces of shit, and your mom was pretty good in general. “A caring mother… I was able to feel her kindness through you two. I’m in debt to her as well. I wish to visit her grave at some point in the future.” Nariko smiles genuinely. You haven’t visited your mother in more than half a year. Maybe there could be a good time for it soon…?“Wouldn’t be funny if I’m the only one with a decent dad? Too bad I can’t remember him!” These jokes of Yu Yan’s are getting old. You’re sure you can handle them a good bit longer though. “So how and why did you get your flame?” It’s your turn to ask now!Nariko strokes her hair, running her fingers through it without thinking. “That’s not an easy question to answer, dear Ando. But a lonely girl without parents or anyone who cares about her… It shouldn’t be hard to understand what happened to reach a low point to draw those demons to oneself, yes?” Nariko looks a little bit grim. “I don’t want to indulge in this topic any longer at present…”You take a deep breath and prepare yourself for the big question. “If we tell you ours, would you tell us yours?” Here we go again!“Do you trust me that much for you to tell me your deepest secrets? Your lowest points?”“Why not? We’re friends, aren’t we?” You shrug. Amelia agrees with a quick series of nods.Nariko seems moved. “How cruel of me keeping my story to myself… But yes, I’ll return the favor. Also I saw you there, short one. I also won’t mind telling you mine when the moment comes.”“You better do it! I’m tired of being kept in the dark here!” Yu Yan feels out of place with no memories or flame, but she’s been better off without them.“We’ll leave them to later then. Plenty of time for that.” You smile. Maybe you can tell them in front of the whole team…? Is Nariko even willing to take part in your ragtag team?!
>>2873066Amelia preemptively asks your question! “So what are you planning to do now?”Nariko’s face darkens and a determined fire lights behind her eyes. “Putting my life back on track is an absolute must. I need to change schools as well; I refuse to attend that rotten hellhole with those dimwits.” Her expression stops being dark and starts being excited, but restrained. “Planning my revenge is important too… And I certainly can’t forget about taking over the world either…! I know this is coming out of nowhere, but dear Ando and Amelia…””Would you two join me in my efforts to win this war?” There’s a smile of assured confidence coming from Nariko as she holds her hand out gracefully to you and your sister! She meant every word she said! What the hell?! How do you respond to this dramatic proposal?! >“No ‘taking over the world’. Just saving it, okay?”>“Why the hell would you want to take over the world?”>“No. You join us instead. A partnership is better than this.”>“Ehm… Okay…? Does it even matter if we say no?”>Write In.(Last Reply of the day, we continue tomorrow! Thanks for playing.)

>>2873069>>“Why the hell would you want to take over the world?”

“No ‘taking over the world’. The people who made it the fucked up place it is, wanted to take it over. I’d like to be better than them, and I know you already are. Protecting it, on the other hand, is something I can do.” Let’s prioritize saving it! Who cares about taking over if it’s going to explode anyway?!Nariko’s eyes show disapproval, but her hand and confident smile remain. “Who cares about protecting a world like this? Society has made this uncaring world what it is, and we have the opportunity to change it. Let’s not waste it.” “Ehm, when you mean ‘society’, do you mean our dictatorship or just people in general? Because oh boy, I wouldn’t mind if you guys get rid of some suits.” Yu Yan makes her position clear. Did she feel this way when she was evil too…?“Society as a whole, short one. Our leaders are nothing but a symptom of our rotten ways – I’m more than capable of fixing the world into something better. A beautiful world where justice is absolute.” Her smile widens in pride.“You lost me there, fatso.” “Oh god, Nariko – you’re a total edgelord! Eugh…” This is one of the rare times when Amelia is legitimately disappointed in somebody. Coming from her, it’s especially powerful!“Pardon me…? Is your solution to leave things as they are?”Amelia stands up completely straight and speaks more seriously than you’ve ever heard her speak in your entire life. “I don’t think anyone in this war is fit to control the world or make a decision like that. We all had to go through horrible things to get the powers we have, and most of us aren’t exactly sane after that. No offense Nariko, but you’re only here because you’re such a crybaby. If you were really fit to be a world leader or someone with real power, you wouldn’t have these superpowers in the first place!” Amelia is having none of it! She’s completely ruthless like Matilda!
>>2875417Nariko just stares in open-mouthed shock. No one had ever talked to her face like that before, probably. “I-If not me, who else…?” Her voice comes out hesitant, much to her visible displeasure.“Nobody. We’re not fit to decide.” Amelia nods dismissively.“Your way of thinking ended up shaping the world the way it is now, Nariko. Everybody thinking they have what it takes to fix the world just causes people to be at each other’s throats. You have to be better than that. I don’t know if this is the right way, but we’re trying to see this through as best as we can.” You’re somewhat with your sister in this, even though she’s being kind of a downer. “Finally I can see what you two are on about!” Yu Yan pumps her fist. “But damn, Ames! I wasn’t expecting this sorta intense shit from you!”“I don’t want Nariko to do something stupid she’ll regret later. I know deep down she’s not like that. If we stick together, I know we’ll be fine.”“I thought you two would agree with me… Perhaps you would disagree on who specifically would rule, but not this.” Nariko is overwhelmed. She puts a hand on her forehead, breathing like she ran hard for a few minutes. “Let’s protect it together, Nariko.” You extend your hand out to her, just the way she did.“I don’t get it… I really do not…” Her voice is scared, like the lost little girl in the streets she used to be. Perhaps you should say or show something to completely convince this Nariko! What do you do? >Write In.
>>2875422>"Political leaders are already in the war and probably will be ruined career-wise if they were exposed."

>>2875422Can she even rule the world anyway? She has no flame, all the others have partners at this point, and I don't think you really get any say at all if you're flameless. She's done in the game, no ifs, ands, or buts.
>>2875600......are you stupid or just didn't pay attention to the last thread? She got her flame back dumbass.
Okay, here goes nothing! This is going to be awkward, real awkward. Even so, you need to convince Nariko of doing good and not going full insane! Because if you don’t, you’ll feel you failed that homeless girl when you told her everything was going to be fine. And that’s not something you want to live with… You have plenty of shit to live with as it is.Time to give a speech that’s probably going to make you cringe at night! “Nariko, just taking over a city is more responsibility than any of us could handle, and the leader of the country himself is having a hard time doing this with actual manpower and soldiers. This dictatorship is unsustainable as it is – just waiting till the corrupt die of old age would work. But a full-on revolution, especially right after the shitshow Yu Yan was a part of? That won’t get favors from anyone. If we help the people in this city, and the world, we can still make a better tomorrow.”“Hehe. My bad.” Yu Yan smiles and shrugs from behind you. You continue your speech, feeling more comfortable as you go. “This whole war is only a trial we have to survive, together. The only thing at the end is a monkey's paw, if anything at all. We’re saddled with demons, or aliens, or whatever these are, who each want to be God – and they're fucking up our world to do it. You lost control once and barely won it back. Do you really want to risk your asshole passenger taking over again after you win? What makes you think anyone else, even you, can or will take over the world? We should focus on making sure this war doesn’t destroy everything we care about, and that no loony even gets near the podium long enough to do so.” “I already quashed her mind once, and I can do it again. I’m more than capable of handling the risk! I-I think…” Nariko is starting to get unsure of herself. You’re getting to her, but this isn’t enough. Not yet.“You want to us to let you run with that risk again? You’re not alone anymore! We care!” Amelia couldn’t stay quiet for much longer. Her words are helping, yes, but there’s something missing. Something more…
>>2875881You swallow the lump in your throat, take a deep breath, and brace yourself for possibly the hardest thing you’ve had to admit in your life. You put a hand on your chest and hold your other hand to the side. “Nariko… You think I’m in this war for power? You think I have any big dreams or goals in this? I don’t want to fix the world or ruin it, or anything like that. I just want to get something done, anything at all.” You look straight at Amelia, then back at Nariko. “Before I had these powers, I was a nobody. A loser. Someone invisible. Someone who nobody wanted. Someone better off dead.” Joel Tomah appears in your head for a fraction of a second, reminding you of what could have been. Fuck him. “My family didn’t care about me, except for two people. The few ‘friends’ I had were assholes – I just hung out with them because they were people who didn’t mind me there. I just lived day in and day out trying to do my best, because other things I did were only to make myself feel better. And guess what? I didn’t feel better. I felt… nothing.” All those hours spent playing vidya, all those hours spent shitposting, all those hours spent going from one thing to the next, trying not to think too much or feel too bad…You look away… You vaguely feel your hands shaking, balled into fists. “Now? After I got this power? After I got Philonune? I’m still a loser. I’m still a nobody… and I still don’t feel any better. That’s not changing, and I don’t think it’ll ever change no matter how much I get myself beaten to an inch of my life, trying to ‘do my best’ like my mom always said… But one thing’s different for sure.” Oh shit, everyone is paying attention – like genuinely!Philonune watches you silently. His smile is warmer than it normally is. You look at Amelia and Yu Yan. Yu Yan grins as your sister’s expression remains unchanged, filled with determination. Now you look at Nariko, who’s looking like the little hobo you always knew. All her bravado and pride and self-assuredness is gone. “…I have people here and out there who care about me. Who give a shit. Who worry about me dying or worse. Who care if I’m gone or if I leave them. That’s a hell of a lot better than what I had before, and I wouldn’t give it up for anything. Not anymore.”
>>2875889You hold Nariko’s gaze. “This is war, Nariko. Power doesn’t matter, anybody can be taken out. Staying alive together, trying to survive to the end… that’s what we need to do. You can be the god at the end and have all the power in the world – but it won’t help you feel better.” You extend your arm out to her as you pat her on the head with the other. You give Nariko a warm smile, and try to hold it.“Now that you’re all together in the head again, how about you join us in our exercise routines? I’m sure you’ll find some… ideas, here and there. And besides, we got cultists, the government, and a bunch of other weird baddies to stop from taking over the planet. We’re going to be busy enough as it is. So what do you say?"Nariko remains speechless. “Say something, fatty!” Yu Yan ruins the moment in the best way possible!“I-I want to feel what you feel now, dear Ando. So yes… Please take care of me, and I will do the same.” Nariko says with a smirk on her face, slowly getting redder and redder.
>>2875893You close your eyes and breathe easy again. That hefty and heartfelt speech is something you won’t forget for as long as you live. Is this what you’ve wanted from the beginning? You don’t know, but hey – it’s better than nothing.Your successful speech has granted you 5 points of Handsomeness! You’ve reached level 4 now! Congratulations! Amelia can’t contain her giggling. “That sounded like a proposal, Johnny!” If you didn’t know any better, you would think Nariko has a fever from how red she looks. Meanwhile next to your sister, Yu Yan rubs her hands together diabolically! “And a diet regimen all in one! P-e-r-f-e-c-t!”Geez, that was embarrassing.Yu Yan suddenly breaks into gleeful cackling like a witch. “Oh, and I recorded the part when Johnny said he was a loser. You bet your ass I’m gonna be using this later!” She plays it at max volume for everyone to hear.You quickly get over hearing your own voice call yourself a loser, having heard it plenty of times before. “How?”Yu Yan pulls out a phone and holds it into the air… Amelia’s! “With your phone!” Did she flawlessly pickpocket your sister just for joke blackmail material?!“W-When did you…?!” Maybe it’s time to move on to other things. What do you do now? >Take Nariko on a trip to her old apartment.>Go visit Nina! You owe it to her and yourself!>It’s time to prepare for your movie night with Scarlet.>You could check on your neighbor…? That one girl you scared the crap out of the other day.>Write In.+5 Handsomeness.

“Ugh… Turn that off.” Yu Yan dances around the living room with the phone still at max volume, completely ignoring your reasonable request.“Never! UGH—!” As Yu Yan proclaims her victory, Amelia is able to tackle her and take what’s hers! This sets off a bickering battle! Now that the other two are distracted, you talk one-on-one with Nariko. “I’m glad you changed your mind, Nariko. I felt like I would be failing you if I ended up not convincing you.”“Dear Ando, did I really worry you so much? If so, I apologize. But is the way I see things really so wrong?” You convinced her to do otherwise, but mentally she’s not there quite yet.“I don’t have an easy answer for that. I knew deep down that’s not the way you want things to go, Amelia was right about that.” “Indeed. I’ll latch onto my sliver of hope that remains for this world, for all your sakes.” A relieved smile shines on Nariko’s face! “I’m so glad I met you all; ending up in the streets ended up being worth it.”“Don’t exaggerate.”“I’m not. I’m really glad to be here and I will be more than happy if you succeed in proving me wrong.” She gets a little serious now. “Since my memories came back, I was afraid I saw the world with green-tinted glasses… That none of you were worth the feelings I had for you… Perhaps it is my inexperience talking here, but I feel like I matter to all of you.” Nariko chuckles. “That’s such an embarrassing thing to say…”“You were probably right, I didn’t do a good job taking care of you. I’m sorry.”“It’s okay, Johnny. Don’t apologize.” You felt for a second there that the roles between you and your hobo were reversed… “I do want to go back to my apartment… At least to get some things. Do you think becoming a tenant in this building would be difficult? You’re in the know with the owner, yes? That bearded man… Chris, was it?” Is everyone going to start moving to your apartment from here on out?!“Craig. And I’d prefer if you didn’t move a muscle now, you need your rest. I need to go do some things now. You’re okay with me going out? I want to make sure you’re alright.”A nod from Nariko. “I don’t want to keep you busy, dear Ando. If I need anything, I’m sure Amelia and the short one will help.” She turns and casually watches Amelia and Yu Yan bickering like children.
>>2876251After taking a quick shower, you left the apartment towards the clinic! It’s 7 PM now! You have a feeling Nariko will somehow go to her apartment with the other girls. You trust your sister to not let her do anything stupid. In the meantime, the clinic’s lobby is strangely empty… And on the way to Nina’s room, you hear two women chatting and having fun! What’s up with that?One of them finally hears you outside the room. “Johnny!” Nina is glad to see you, though she’s still bedridden.“Oh my! What brings you here, handsome?” Nurse Calamity is here too. For some reason, she seems more excited than before. As soon as she says ‘handsome’, Nina pinches her butt. “Ouch!”“He’s just a student…” Nina reminds Kata of something she doesn’t care about, the hypocrite.“But he’s getting better and better…!” Kata gets pinched in the butt again for her troubles. “H-Hi…?” This display didn’t make you feel uncomfortable at all! “I came to visit Nina, but since you’re here, could you tell me how the doc is doing? I’ve been worried about him lately since I haven’t heard any news.”Kata gives you a thumbs up! “My dear uncle is slowly improving! He woke up yesterday – but only for a few hours. He’s a morning person, so it’ll be difficult for you to see him with school and all. Unless this naughty teacher here gives you a certain favor…” Again, Nina pinches Nurse Kata’s butt. Nurse Kata just moans at this. Why is something like this happening in a clinic?! “Don’t say it like that.” Nina is having none of it. “Well, I’ll leave the two of you alone. Try to not steal this piece of pie from me, okay Nina?” Kata walks away with her hypnotic strut going. She doesn’t know Nina has you all to herself, or that Nina has the better ass.“Ugh… See ya, Kata.” Nina seems irritated at that comment, even though she still waves at her back. “Having fun with Nurse Kata? I’m glad you’re getting some company without us. How are you feeling?” You ask your girlfriend, who looks so much better than yesterday, almost like night and day! Except her hair is still a mess, and there are too many clinic desserts on her table.“Much, much better!” Nina smiles like the sun. “I’ll be ready to go home tomorrow…” The weak gloominess returns. What do you want to talk about first? >“Can you tell me what happened to you the other day now? I’m still super worried.”>“I have big news, Nariko has her memories back! And she’s on our side now!”>“So what happened to Carmella? Osgood said you were evading the topic.”>“So Icioba manipulated your feelings right? You don’t really love me, do you…?”>“So you’re friends with Kata now? The more friends the better, I think.”>Write In.(Last reply of the day, we continue tomorrow!)
>>2876257>“So Icioba manipulated your feelings right? You don’t really love me, do you…?”
>>2876257>>“I have big news, Nariko has her memories back! And she’s on our side now!”
>>2876257>“So you’re friends with Kata now? The more friends the better, I think.”>"So, Nina, about what happened when I came over..."
>>2876257>“I have big news, Nariko has her memories back! And she’s on our side now!”>“So you’re friends with Kata now? The more friends the better, I think.”
>>2876257>"She knows you have a better ass right?">“Can you tell me what happened to you the other day now? I’m still super worried.”>Try and hold her hand and spend time together>"Uh....so about your flame, are we still a thing?"
“She knows you have a better ass, right?”She wryly smiles.“Just saying…” That wasn’t too awkward, was it?Now she’s giggling for real. What an enigmatic girlfriend, perhaps she didn’t like you admiring other people’s butts? Or is she self conscious about her big ass? Anyway... “I have big news you’ll want to hear. Nariko has her memories back! And she’s on our side now!” After a long and stressful ordeal, this makes you unbelievably happy.“I’m so glad! You wouldn’t mind if I come visit her one of these days, would you? I would love to have a chat with her.”“When I have ever said no to you? Of course you can.” Is she doubting you or something? Nina stretches in her hospital bed, and puts her hands back behind her head. “So is she acting any different now?”Different is an understatement. “She’s a little pessimistic? A little cynical? I don’t know how to explain it too well. Deep down she’s still the same girl we all know. She has an ego though, talked about taking over the world before we talked her out of it. Still very respectful and all. I probably should have stayed a little longer, but I was worried about you.”“I have a difficult time imagining her like that, honestly.” Well, Nina’s favorite hobo was Nariko after all. “You always find ways to succeed all on your own, huh?” That smile of admiration on Nina’s face, you’ve missed it so much. “I’m not alone at all; I’m with you and everyone else.” Fuck, getting optimistic is somewhat contagious!“No need to be so modest. I haven’t done a thing aside for arriving late every time, and now I’m more useless than ever.” Nina scoffs at your comment with her own negativity. “Imagine what you all could accomplish without me in the way…”That’s enough self-deprecation out of her! “Don’t talk like that. Without you I wouldn’t even be here.” And Nariko’s flame wouldn’t have been released from Ka-Shing device either.“Oh my, you’re positively gleaming right now!” Nina seems happy. If she wanted a reaction out of you to show you care, it worked. You try to change the subject to something that won’t get her going again. “So… You’re friends with Kata now? The more friends the better, I think.”“Yeah! She’s a lot of fun, It’s a nice change of pace talking with someone my age. She’s older than me, but it doesn’t even feel that way!” Nina seems to bleed happiness now too. “I wish she didn’t use me as an excuse to get a break… I shouldn’t be judging though: She a real medical professional through and through.”
>>2877568“Still feels like an odd pairing.” You muse at this. Then again, you imagine someone as perverted as Kata would be good friends with someone so restrained like Nina…She starts snickering. “What? Mister ‘I befriend homeless people, school delinquents, and shady rogues’ talks about me having an odd friend? The nerve of you, Johnny!” Nina even does a good imitation of your voice!“I called the pairing odd, not Kata.” Technically right, but she doesn’t need to know that.“Oh, I know what you really mean, sir. I know what Mister Johnny Ando is all about. After all we’ve been through I feel well aware of your… perks.” Having fun at your expense is fine and all, but you caught her staring someplace just now and she knows it. There’s only so much fun you can let yourself have. Perhaps it’s time to change the mood and get serious… >Ask her about what happened to her the other day. How did she get to that point?>Ask her if Icioba’s words ring true. Were her feelings really manipulated, or what?>Tell her you’re going to check on her later. Some more time might be better for her…>Write In.

I'm having technical difficulties! Sorry!
“Nina, can I be serious for a moment?” Tonal shift let’s go!“What is it?” Mood change complete! “What happened to you the other day? I’m still seriously worried.” You grab her hand and sit near her, trying to show your support.“I… Well… It’s a long story.” One she doesn’t want to tell, it seems.“Was it something I did? Did I fuck up?”She waves her hands to stop you. “No! No! Nothing like that! I just had a cruel reminder that I’m too stupid sometimes…” Her sadness is starting to show. “Remember Carmella?” “That drunken friend of yours?”“Yes, you could call her that… A few days ago, Carmella got into another car accident. She was drunk and lost control, crashing into a post. She’s not dead or injured, thank goodness, but it wasn’t her first accident. They took her to jail.…”“Why didn’t you tell me this before?” Sure you don’t care much about Carmella, but Nina does! Having her talk to you about it before would make her feel better.“I’m sorry… I thought I could handle it on my own.”Nina waits a few seconds, then continues. “Anyway, Carmella didn’t have any money to pay the fine after her ex-boyfriend scammed her for most of hers, so she called me the other day begging me to help her pay. The naïve part of me accepted, only this once and if she promised me to go to rehab and pay me back.”Something’s not right here… “Wait, don’t you have money problems?!”She gives you a rueful smile. “Yeah… They kind of got worse now. I pawned off most of my things to get enough money to pay the fine, thinking I would get it back.” A sad chuckle expresses how stupid she was. “…Carmella completely disappeared. Never answered my calls, left her apartment completely… She’s just gone. I even tried calling her parents, but they didn’t have any idea either.” “What the fuck? Why didn’t you come ask me for money? I could go beat Ka-Shing at another bet if you needed me to!” You have 25K already, and you have Ka-Shing’s personal number on-hand! One round of a children’s card game could potentially yield enough to help Nina out if she wanted!“Yeah, ask your new 17 year old boyfriend to pay your debt? I was already a burden to you, I didn’t want to make it worse or make you feel I was taking advantage of you… Dumb pride. Money wasn’t the only problem that same day… I imploded. I don’t know if it was Icioba’s doing, but every day I felt constantly drained, my mood getting worse and worse… I couldn’t sleep and I barely ate. Only when I was with you I felt something that wasn’t necessarily anger. That doesn’t change the fact I lost control of myself.
>>2878077After our little encounter at school, Principal Galishoff scolded me again for a bunch of things I have no control over… I was so tired, so angry, and so done with everything – I snapped and told him off as respectfully as I could. Of course I didn’t expect him to take it well, but he started yelling and cursing at me. Threatened to have a replacement for me by the end of the month… Said I was a second-rate deadbeat teacher, that I ‘failed his high expectations and lost his respect’. That I was lucky I somehow landed the job, and to enjoy my last days in the city.” Every word out of Nina’s mouth is strained and anguished. Her hands are shaking as they hold the sheets, face scrunched up in grief. You silently pat her on the back as she continues her tragedy. “I was busy searching for Carmella everywhere when you called, and I had just spoken to her parents before you showed up. And then I looked at myself in the only mirror I had left in the apartment, and saw nothing but a failure... An out of shape, stupid, naïve failure – eating her last leftovers watching her broken TV, trying to ignore her couch springs stabbing her in the back… A failure, whose only hope was her miracle high-schooler boyfriend to somehow manage to fix her mess, again…I couldn’t get myself out of the pit I felt pulling me under, not even with your help. It would have only been a matter of time before it would take you too. That’s why when you attacked me… Aside from the shock and loneliness, a part of me felt… relieved. Relieved you were finally getting rid of me. You would have found happiness somewhere else… With someone better. With someone who could challenge you to be a better person and fulfill your potential and support you and keep you company and satisfy your needs and and and and I’m sorry for being like this!”
>>2878081Nina is bawling her lungs out, breaking your heart with every sob she chokes out. You hug her tightly and stroke her fluffy hair. It takes a few minutes before Nina regains her composure, breathing a little easier. “No, Nina… It was never like that.” She’s selling herself so short, she would probably pawn her accomplishments for a dollar…“I’m sorry, Johnny…” “I don’t agree with whatever you were thinking at the time. You’re selling yourself short because you’re used to feeling that way. But if you really want to prove your worth to anyone, and to be the positive influence you want to be… I think, Nina, you need to do your best for yourself first.” Okay, two heartfelt speeches in one day. At least this one is short. You want Nina to feel better, to not only stop feeling this way but to stop making herself feel this way out of habit! “Nobody can stop you now! I believe in you!” “Do my best…? Just like Amelia always says, huh?” The love of your life is finally getting the philosophy you’ve held to all these years!“Yes! What you need to do from now on is— Excuse me?! Like Amelia always what now?” Did your bitch sister steal your fucking catchphrase?! Technically it’s your mother’s but she passed it onto you! What’s next?! Stealing ‘What’s good?!(©®™)’ from you?! You’re gonna have a talk with her…“Pfft… Hahaha…! I don’t know what happened, but your face totally changed!” Nina can’t stop giggling in-between breaths. “But… I have nothing holding me down now. I will change, Johnny. I promise.” “Ehem… I felt like we had a conversation like this before.”“We did, but I’m a hard nut to crack.” She remembers your many past encounters where you needed to cheer her up. Looks like she’ll be the one doing it for you from now on! “But what will you do with your apartment’s stuff? Oh, and don’t worry about your job – Galishoff got fired today.”“He did?! About time! Any word on who’s replacing him?”“Mr. Conti…”“Oh… He’s way better to deal with, I’ll give him that.” She tries to stay positive! Small steps! “Nina, there’s still something else I wanted to talk about.” You take the plunge, seeing her silent look of curiosity. “Was what Icioba said true? Were your feelings for me really controlled or what?”Nina closes her eyes and looks away from you. “I think he played a part, yes…” “So you don’t really love me?”Nina gives you a tearful smile that aches your chest. “I do. I love you, Johnny Ando. I love your eyes, your messy hair, your sense of humor, your courageous heart and your quirkiness… But now that my heart seems to be finally at peace… It’s like seeing the world with different eyes.”
>>2878082She rubs the tears out of her eyes as if on cue. “Is everything I feel for you real? Was Icioba playing with my mind? How long are the effects going to last? I feel like he gave me that little push for me to find my happiness, but pushed me too far the other way and made me incapable of controlling my feelings. I feel like I’m slowly coming back to terms with myself, like I should have a long time ago.” She looks down at her palms. She’s dodging your question. “So that’s a no…?”“That’s a… I need more time… I’m going to do my best from now on, alright? I need to do this the proper way. No monster is going to tell me what to do or how to feel anymore. We deserve better than that, I deserve better than that, and you of all people deserve better than that.”“I’m confused.”Nina puts her hands behind your head and pulls your face closer. You’re inches away from your love’s tear-stained face and mesmerizing eyes. “It means that when I get closer to your lips to kiss them, closer to you to feel your breath, I shouldn’t hear a little voice in the back of my head saying ‘a monster was the one who started it all’. I want to do it myself, because I love you… And nothing else.” “T-that’s means it’s over?”“That’s up to you…” Nina is shaking now. The grief is back. “But I can’t be with you until my feelings sort themselves out. So I’ll leave it up to you. I know this is too much to ask, and I probably shouldn’t have that right… But I’m doing my best. For me and for you. At least I think so…” How do you respond to this heartbreaking revelation?! >“We’re going to still be friends. I don’t care if you love me the way I love you, but I want to keep visiting you.”>“Then let’s pretend this never happened… But it’s up to you if you want to come back together!”>”It doesn’t matter if you love me back or not. We’re still part of this team together with everyone else, and we need to stay alive.”>“So you really never loved me? That was all a lie from the day I brought you to my apartment, and only now you’re back to how you should be?”>“So a break for now? I guess I can deal with that… After all that happened, I think having some space is good for both of us.”>Write In.

>>2878083"...Then how about this? Wait for me. Let me grow into a man that can love and support you in the ways that you need. It'll be hard on the both of us, but if we're going to try to do our best at this, then it'll be better if we wait until I'm able to say I love you openly and out loud.">“We’re going to still be friends.

>>2878083>“So a break for now? I guess I can deal with that… After all that happened, I think having some space is good for both of us.”
“Then let’s pretend this never happened… But it’s up to you if you want to come back together!” It’s time for her to do her own chasing. Clinging onto false hope is not your style anymore.“Don’t say anything you’ll regret, because I will take your word on it… I’m sorry everything had to end up this way, Johnny. That doesn’t mean things won’t get better in our future though.” She gives you a bright smile. Feelings are weird and confusing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t understand them. “Mhm! I’ll try to grow into a man that can love and support you in the ways you need. One who’s going to be able to say ‘I love you’ openly and out loud, without worrying about anyone else hearing or caring. One that’s worth waiting for.” You channel your level 4 handsomeness into your voice.Nina’s face reddens. It worked! “Don’t tease me saying stuff like that! We just ended this…!” Are you confused or not, woman? Be honest!“What are you talking about? It never happened…” You look at the horizon… Inside the room. She gently slaps your arm in obvious jest. “Ouch, I’m still injured! How could you hit a broken man like this?” The double meaning is not lost on you as you say this.“I’m sorry!” Nina forgot something so simple. Perhaps her mind is wandering to the future… A future you need to save at all costs! “Then… Uhm… I’ll take my leave, Ms. Uccelli.” You adjust your glasses. “I’ll see you one of these days.”“Have a nice trip back home, Mr. Ando.” She shows you her tongue as you leave the room. The same tongue that twisted around yours that one amazing night you…No. That’s enough reminiscing about the night you lost your v-card to the woman with the incredible ass. You were mature enough to end this amicably and left the door open for the future. Now it’s up to Nina to take the first step or not. You wish she wouldn’t take her time though. Now you’re outside the clinic, the fresh air fueling your hope for the future - not to mention the clinic air feels kinda stale despite the AC. You have one last thing to do for today, don’t you? >Walk around the area near the clinic, you need some time alone. Perhaps call Scarlet to cancel.>Scarlet and the movie are waiting for you.

It’s time to get to the movies! You promised Scarlet and you can’t back down now. It’s not like she’s going to get mad at you or anything, she’s not like that anymore. That doesn’t mean you can do whatever you want at her expense! Good thing you took a shower before getting here! You head straight to the strange movie theater she mentioned! It should be close by, judging by the map on your phone… As you get there, you decide to text your sister to see how the hobos are behaving… or lack thereof. From the gist of it, you don’t know where this is going, but it’s going somewhere! Nariko wants to negotiate with poor Craig for an apartment room, but it appears he’s not available. Yu Yan and Amelia are helping this new and improved hobo bring her stuff over to your apartment too! Things are getting more cramped than before… Yu Yan has been complaining the whole time and Amelia is sick of her whining. Amelia wonders if this bickering is what you’ve been dealing with for so long, and apologizes for not being a good sister. What’s she talking about? She’s the one who spent more time with them! Maybe you should have stuck around and brought some order to the place…?Eh, fuck it! Amelia deserves it for stealing your catchphrase! She can bear it for a few more hours! Eventually you arrive at the seedy movie theater. This place seems awfully familiar – not because you have been here before, but you feel like someone close to you described this place to a tee recently. The prelude to some accident happening, perhaps…? It’s 8:55 pm and you’re outside waiting for Scarlet. Always better to be early just in case things happen, like you have to fill out boring paperwork or wait in line or things like that! Scarlet shows up sooner than you expect! She’s wearing a cute dress with style and flair! “J-Johnny! Did I make you wait?” Scarlet is way too excited for just a movie.“No, we’re both early.”“G-guess both of us hate making people wait, right?”“You could say that, yeah.” “So what movie do you want to see?” Scarlet checks the billboard. There’s a dozen movies showing here, and a good number of them start soon!“I don’t know this place, so…? I mean, you always pick. Why not do it again?”“T-That’s exactly why! I want you to have fun today!” What’s Scarlet doing? It was her idea and she didn’t have a movie in mind? What the hell?! Okay fine, what movie do you pick? >This weird foreign romantic movie.>This psychological horror movie.>This strange sci-fi movie.>This tragic comedy movie.>Force Scarlet to pick anyway.
>>2878434>This tragic comedy movie.Specifically, the one where the MC's mother dies from getting hit by a car, flipping into a post, and exploding.

“This tragic comedy one seems… Ehm… decent?” You cannot put it into words to describe it correctly, but there is something about this movie that caught your attention.“A dramedy? Sounds like it could be fun! Oh it’s going to start soon, let’s get moving!”“Let’s get those tickets then.” You insisted in buying both tickets for no good reason. They were cheap enough it’s not even a bother anyway. There aren’t many people in this cinema, but nobody here seems like a creep or anything – so it’s okay for you to relax. You have Philonune anyway, though using excessive force is not something you want to do today after all the emotions you went through. “You sure you don’t want anything to eat?” Scarlet starts eating her popcorn.“Not in the mood right now.” On the big screen appears words you weren’t expecting... “Ka-Shing Productions Presents…?” The fuck?!“Never heard of them either. Huh. That reminds me, they gave us this thing with the tickets.” Scarlet hands you something small and flat. It’s a Sparks of Luck card… It’s the Warrior Queen of Prosperity! Somehow looking at this card is making you depressed inside. “Do you want to keep it or…?”“Sshhh!” Some asshole in the audience shuts up Scarlet. You glare at his direction, then you nod at Scarlet. Why not keep it? You could use it in your deck. The movie… hits home for some reason! The main character’s mother had the same tragic backstory as yours! You have no idea why these tasteless and heartless people are laughing at this real hero’s misfortune. The hero turned himself into a Yakuza hero, and then his misadventures began on the path of strife! The movie continues, oblivious to the creeping air of danger you feel out of nowhere… Wait no, it’s just Scarlet! She holds onto your arm and puts her head on your shoulder. You’re a little used to people doing stuff like this. Is this weird cinema the right place for it though?! What do you do? >Tell her you need to go to the bathroom for a second.>Use your free arm to steal some popcorn from her!>Pull her closer to you then let her be. This is nice.>Rest your head on hers, show some dominance.>Write In.+1 Warrior Queen of Prosperity-8 Gor$(Last reply of the day, we finish the thread tomorrow! Thanks for playing.)

You were comfortable a few seconds ago, but now with her head resting on your shoulder you are having a problem even paying attention to this future award-winning movie. She thinks she can do whatever she likes, huh? She thinks you’re comfy with her head on your shoulder? Well guess what? You totally are. Time to switch roles and go on the offensive! You rest your head on hers and pull her closer with your arm over her shoulder, leaving her head on your chest. Who’s resting over who now? This bold maneuver caused her to whimper and jump in her seat the moment you attacked!Scarlet, if you want play with fire you might need to be put out… Because you become the fire, and… That’s not how it goes, though the point still stands! Whatever the point was supposed to be in the first place is lost on you. Maybe you’re thirsty? Why else would you think about water at a time like this? Did the AC in here break or something? Suddenly it feels warmer in here…What’s that sound anyway? Sounds like heavy breathing.It’s coming from Scarlet isn’t it? She really needs to calm down.Maybe you should rub her shoulder, that usually calms all the girls you know. Must be the movie making her feel this way. This is a dramedy, isn’t it? Maybe you’re at a sad part? You haven’t seen too many dramedies to tell if this is supposed to be a sad part or not. You’ve seen Scarlet cry multiple times, so why would this be any different?Wait, when they did get into space…?! That’s your fault for not paying attention! Even then, this doesn’t fit the way she’s acting. Why are you asking all these questions to yourself?
>>2879756Speaking of paying attention, you get the brilliant idea of looking around to see if you can spot anyone you recognize. You can use Philonune’s shit ability for this! Sunglasses mode on!Shit, this place looks shittier with the lights on! Were the walls colored like that? Were the seats this worn down? There aren’t even any cup holders! That’s the real tragedy right here! Oh wait some seats do… Guess you picked the wrong ones. “D-d-d-d-did something ha-ha-happen?” Scarlet whispers. She did feel a bit stiff a few minutes ago, almost frozen up. Now that you think about it, having her this close feels nice. Smells nice too. Did she start using new shampoo or perfume?“Nothing…?” You whisper back. What were you doing again? Oh right, checking on people! The place is not even that filled up, but it’s a respectable crowd! Most of them look like college students, at least between that age gap – there are 2 or 3 more older-looking people like Flint…Wait what?What is he doing here?! He’s obviously way into the movie you’re all watching, which you silently approve because it’s a damn good movie that hits close to home but what the hell is he doing here?! Wait, Scarlet is breathing hard again! Enough worrying about Flint, you have your guest to worry about.You turn to see what’s wrong and end up face-to-face with each other. She has some popcorn leftovers near her lips and – fuck, she already ate most of it! Guess having this night vision is showing things you don’t want to pay too much attention to…It’s not like her face is cute to look at or anything… Sadly this is all we have for this week’s thread! Thanks for playing!
Here a joke. Question, should I post all related DYB art on twitter? There are some shitty doodles (mostly suggestive art wink* wink*) here and there I can post; or should I only post good art?Maybe I should post them here, but you know - this is a blue board and shit.
>>2879836Post em here, being a blue board is irrelevant
>>2879857>>2879878here you go! I hope you guys like them. I spoiler them just in case.
>>2879951Unless its actual nudity there is no reason to spoiler it, now post more
>>2879958>>2879986I don't have more, for now... If you want more from a specific character, please do tell!
