In the far future, biotechnology advances by leaps and bounds, creating stunning achievements in medical, civil, and military applications. Illness becomes a thing of the past, and genetic modification is as commonplace as cosmetic surgery.However, like all great advances, unchecked progress and experimentation has led to abuse and corruption. Ultra powerful megacorporations that monopolized the latest biotech have risen to be the great powers of the age, waging secret wars of sabotage, espionage, and deceit to get ahead of each other.In order to fuel their rampant growth, megacorps develop lethal diseases and viruses, horrific bio-organic abominations, and ever more exotic genetic modifications to both sell to the highest bidder and unleash upon each other.The rampant proliferation of bioweapons, and the need to contain them, has given rise to a new profession, the BIOWEAPON HUNTER.---Now with a new OP!Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Bioweapon%20Hunter%20QuestOther Quests: https://pastebin.com/eTUmEmRb---You are LEWIS, a Hunter specializing in hunting down biological threats with your T-Doll companion HK!Currently, you were back home, well, your old home, where you grew up. It was a nice, sizeable ranch tucked away in a special corner of nowhere, pretty much completely off the grid and largely self sufficient. Mom was the type of person who valued her privacy, and considering today's developments, you could now sort of understand why. In light of your recently emerging abilities, though, Mom had promised to help teach you how to hide and control them. After all, it would be inconvenient for people to figure out that you had magical ability. Geez, you still couldn't quite wrap your head around that. You weren't even a girl!Regardless, Mom had led you out of the house, and you just wordlessly followed her as she took you out to...>The old cornfield. >The lake.>The abandoned mine. >Other
>>3037120>>The lake.I'll take a guess that the mine has actually been repurposed as an underground bunker/fortress/fallout shelter.
>>3037120>The old cornfield.
>>3037120>>The abandoned mine.
>>3037120Mom leads you out the nearby lake. A man made one. At one end is a small concrete dam, which generated electricity for the house and created a sizeable reservoir for drinking water. It was a respectable little thing. Not exactly a full sized lake and more of a really large pond, but nobody argued about the semantics. On the shore was a small dock, with a small motorboat moored to it. Still in rather good condition, fortunately. Mom just casually jumps in and motions for you to follow."Come on, it's a little farther." She says. "What are we doing...?" You frown, a bit perplexed."Just some training. Trust me." Mom shrugs. You cautiously sit in the boat, and Mom pulls the engine cord. The motor coughs to life, and the motorboat gently rolls out into the center of the lake. "So, this is gonna be tough to teach, since there's nothing logical about magic. At all." Mom speaks up as she steers the boat. "It all runs on emotions and adrenaline. The heat of the moment. Probably why the Companions preferred targeting girls. We're more prone to that sort of shit."You just nod silently, wondering what sort of point Mom was trying to make. "Anyways, magic potential didn't really trigger unless the girl was in a seriously heightened state of emotional distress." Mom further explains."Well the, how are we-"And the words die your mouth and your insides freeze as your mind finally makes the connection."Good luck, kid." Mom says nonchalantly as she kicks you in the chest, her heavy boot knocking all the air out of your body as it splashes into the freezing water. "GAH!" You yelp as your head breaks the surface, your arms flailing to stabilize your body. "What the fuck, Mom?!""Better act fast, Lewis!" Mom says, already motoring away on the boat. That's when your biosensor buzzes, warning you of something approaching. Something BIG. Behind you, the water begins to ripple as something very large slithers just beneath the surface.>Swim for it!>No choice but to try and fight it.>Other
>>3037207>>Swim for it!
>>3037207>No choice but to try and fight it.
>>3037207>>No choice but to try and fight it.I'm guessing it's Carol's aquatic form when she ate that shark that one time.
>>3037207>>No choice but to try and fight it.Alice, we need to talk about why you have something in the lake that would try and eat us.
>>3037207>Swim for it!
>>3037207>Swim for it!Fighting a giant aquatic monster in this lake would be madness.I mean, what happens when its corpse contaminates our drinking water?
>>3037207>Swim for it!It's pretty hard to fight in water.
>>3037207>>OtherRelax, there's nothing in the lake that could support such a huge thing biologically. There isn't any report of a massive loss of wildlife from it either. It's just our sister fucking with us.Goddamn our logic.
>>3037230Our mother could have put it there recently. If you're right about it being Carol, we look a little silly. If you're wrong, we might get a huge bite taken out of us.
>>3037230We're trying to train our magic by putting ourselves in 'a seriously heightened state of emotional distress'. While you're probably right about it being Carol, relaxing would sort of defeat the purpose of this exercise.
>>3037237>>3037243That's why I added 'goddamn our logic'. We probably should feel distressed for the sake of triggering our magic but the little kid in the back of our head keeps whispering to us our hard earned wisdom of our mother and sister's antics that it's hard to take it seriously, even when we really really want to.
>>3037207Fuck fuck fuck! There was no time to think, you had to get somewhere safe!You immediately spin around and try to swim for sure as quick as possible. Damn Mom made sure to put you exactly in the center of the lake so you'd have to swim the farthest possible distance...>Roll 1d20

However, it's not quiet enough. You're only halfway there, but your biosensors continues to screech at the approaching threat behind you.

Rolled 4 (1d20)>>3037406AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>3037406Does time stand still?
>>3037413With the first two high rolls I'd say yes.
>>3037413We are not getting timestop but really hihg speed to eyes of alice and carol.
>>3037420It probably looks more like teleportation. We're in one spot, then suddenly another.
>>3037413Maybe it could be localized timestop, or we're just slowing time just enough for it to be useful.
>>3037413No, because we're not at the Iron Hill.
>>3037428Of course, time-based powers aren't just limited to stopping or slowing it. Perhaps we could selectively accelerate it, see into the future, skip forwards, or rewind it.
>>3037406And the world seems to stop. It was just like before, when Loki first appeared to you. In addition the color seems to bleed out, turning everything into shades of grey and black. Leaves hang in the air, while the water is still as if frozen into ice. You... you couldn't really move yourself. Your body feels heavy and sluggish, like you're submerged in a lake of tar instead of water. But your mind worked just as quickly as ever."Oh my, this is quite the development." Loki chuckles as he strolls casually atop the water's surface. "Time manipulation, eh? Quite the rare talent.""What are you doing here?" You frown. "Just to provide bit of context for your newly discovered power." Loki purrs as he rubs his body across the back of your head. "This is quite the useful power to get yourself out of a jam, you know? If a roll doesn't quite turn your way, you can use this to force a reroll! Isn't that great?""W-what?" You blink."But you're limited to one use per session! So make it wise!" >TIMESTOP: Grants a free reroll once per session. And just like that, Loki is gone.But that gives you time. Time to think. Your crystal dagger appears in your hand, exuding a calming warmth. >Use it to escape.>Use it to fight.
>>3037445>Use it to fight.
>>3037445>Use it to escape.FUCKING GO!
>>3037445>>Use it to escape.Call me Moses, we'll cut a path through the lake.
>>3037445>>Use it to escape.
>>3037445>Use it to fight.Stars, gather, and become the light which pierces through everything.
>>3037442I look forward to internet arguments about how King Crimson works redoubling when the filthy secondaries get to see it in action.Then again, it might be easier to explain and demonstrate that shit in animation. But if they wa t to try that shit, thsy better bring Araki in and have him walk them through it.>>3037445>Use it to fight.ROADO ROLLA DA!
>>3037459We should come up with our own unique poses and magical boy uniform.I vote for wearing something that is "FAAAABULOUS". Like in Star Driver.
>>3037460I just hope HK won't bluescreen over our growing list of abilities and changes in our personality.
>>3037445You know, humanity is pretty lucky that there was a Time Magical Girl during the war.
>>3037466That there *wasn't*
>>3037445>>Use it to fight.>>3037454Heh, that's probably too advanced to use on our first magical fight, if we can ever use it that is.
>>3037445And just like that, color and sound flow back into the world, slamming into you like a tidal wave. Thankfully, you manage to keep your senses, and see the lake creature heading straight for you. On pure reflex, you swipe you dagger and there's a flash. A blade light slices through the water towards the creature, and there's an explosion as Carol comes shooting through the air, landing next to you in a loud splash. "You big meanie! What was that for?!" Carol whines, staying afloat in the water far easier than you. "You were trying to attack me!" You reply in exasperation. "I was only making it LOOK like I was trying to attack you!" Carol grumbles. "All right kids, that's enough." Mom chuckles as she pulls up in the boat, offering a hand to you. "Good job, Lewis. You just got past the first hurdle." "Um, thanks?" You frown. "Time magic's pretty powerful." Mom nods. "You live long enough and nurture that power, you'll be a pretty scary fucker."You're honestly not even surprised at this point Mom already figured out what power you manifested. "But you got a little taste of what its like to call on that power. It comes in flashes. Intense periods. You keep your cool, you keep your senses, and you won't lose control.""Is it... that simple?" You blink."Yeah. Pretty much." Mom shrugs.>Oh, cool>You... made it sound much harder.>Other

>>3037486>>You... made it sound much harder.I thought there would be a lot more to it, like important skills, special techniques, training, etc.
>>3037486>You... made it sound much harder.>>3037488Too late, we have a dagger; if we're going the singing route, then Airgetlam it is even though Airgetlam isn't a dagger Kaneko pls
>>3037459King Crimson's website has a page on how the Stand works, so I'd hope it's better understood these days.Yes, King Crimson. As in the band.>>3037486>Oh, cool
>>3037486>>You... made it sound much harder.So that just leaves us with our Invader powers, and how to potentially combine both if possible.>>3037488Could always attempt to turn our arms into biological guns if we aren't using them for more casual, or lewd things.
>>3037492ZENBU!Good to see another poster with patrician taste in songsluts.
>>3037486>>You... made it sound much harder.>>3037488Zenbu is love, zenbu is life.
>>3037496I mean, Ichaival isn't more missiles than the 7th fleet, so Airgetlam being a dagger is tame by comparison.
>>3037497I know they're fans (supposedly they keep a figure of the Stand in their recording studio), but that part's a new one on me. Do you have a link on hand?
>>3037502I meant that since our magical weapon is already known to be a crystal dagger that shoots lasers, it's unlikely that we'd be able to instead manifest a karaoke-powered rocket launcher.

>>3037513We just need to manage being too retarded to realize we're using it wrong!Though maybe nobody's pointed it out to her due to a standing order from Genjuro involving Bikky, pointy objects, and the risk of the poor girl hurting herself?>>3037520>>3037522That is fucking amazing.
>>3037486"You... made it sound much harder." You frown as Mom pulls you into the boat. "Well, it sorta is." Mom grunts. "The Companions did all the heavy lifting, and normally, when your Companion's toast, so's your magic. Me and Loki, we had... different circumstances.""Oh, so you have no idea what you're doing, either." You roll your eyes."Yeah, pretty much." Mom concedes. "But hey, it worked, right?""Urgh, I guess." You groan. Carol is already waiting for the both of you at shore, waving happily. "Anyways, Carol can teach you how to use some of your Invader side." Mom grunts. "I technically have all the Queen powers, but I usually just delegate that shit to Carol. She's more in tune with it than I am."Wait, Queen powers-?"Lewie! You ready?" Carol asks enthusiastically.>Sure thing.>I don't know about this Invader stuff...>Other
>>3037513>>3037527Wasn't Alice's name Magical Girl Kaleidoscope? And we have one of her prism daggers and her weapon was crystal prism daggers? Jeweled Sword Zelretch when?

>>3037531>Other"Explain 'Queen powers' mom."
>>3037531Lets go with >>3037540
>>3037531>Sure thing.>I mean, I'm not ready at all, but that didn't stop Mom from dumping me in a lake, and I doubt it's stopping whatever we're doing next.
>>3037531>Other"Explain 'Queen powers' mom."I mean seriously, Lewis is probably more confused by the whole Invader shit more than unsure.
>>3037531>>Sure thing.Holy fuck our sister is queen of the invaders
>>3037553That does raise the question of what happened to the remaining Invaders across the planet. Can Carol summon all of them to her like Aquaman?
>>3037531Going with >>3037540
>>3037554>She ate them and assimilated their powers, duh.
>>3037559>She ate all of themShe must be great at hiding all that Biomass. Does she make herself a Royal outfit made out of bones and gore alongside a throne?
>>3037563>She must be great at hiding all that Biomass.Obviously, she was just a giant fish monster.She probably could if she wanted too.
>>3037531>>Sure thing.If you have Queen powers, does that give me Prince powers? kek
>>3037576If we had Pprince powers then we would be morally obligated to ditch the Hunter gig and pursue a career in music. That man was a treasure and the world is that much the worse for his passing.
>>3037531"Sure." You nod and pause. "Wait, explain these 'Queen powers', Mom.""Oh, right. Guess they covered all that shit up, too." Mom rolls her eyes. "Short version, the Invader Queen tried to come and eat Earth, some space magic on a part of me and we managed to get rid of her, but I, uh, inherited some shit from her.""You see, Invaders are a hive mind! We share information through a combination of low level telepathy and genetic memory!" Carol chimes. "That makes teaching you things really really easy!""Okay, so how does it work?" You wonder."Just uh, sorry Lewie, but the first time is gonna hurt a bit!" Carol says apologetically as she steps forward."What-"Carol then lunges forward, a black armored hand clutching the front of your head. Everything goes black, but you see flashes of images. Memories. Too blurry and alien to comprehend on your own, but there are some you can see little more clearly...>A thick tough shell, almost impervious to harm.>You see enemies writhing in pain a great distance away.>You feel like you're soaring.>Other

>>3037587>A thick tough shell, almost impervious to harm.I'm fine with this as long as we don't end up as sparkly Alex Mercer. Eating people is not good.
>>3037610>Eating people is not good.I will only concede the point if we properly define "people" to not include Wesker. Because if he so much as LOOKS at Lucina wrong we should just eat his ass and be done with it. I don't want her getting Jill'd.
>>3037587>A thick tough shell, almost impervious to harm.What's this? Eating DEagle ammo like it's going out of style? Why thank you!
>>3037613Eating people isn't justice, if Wesker tries anything we need to kick him so hard he explodes. Twice.
>>3037617Anon, that won't kill him.He's Albert fucking Wesker.He's The Man Your Man Could Kill Like.We have to be absolutely certain no part of him survives. Eating him is the only way.
>>3037624We could just fight him in a volcano. And just shoot him a lot.
So I'm assuming we also get some form of shifting power so that we can disguise ourselves as different people along with whatever combat powers we get.We should see how far we can go in terms of disguises. Like growing a beard, getting taller/shorter, younger, older, and even male enhancement like bigger muscles!
>>3037624If it didn't kill him, that means you didn't put enough justice into your kick.

>>3037641>Implying we're not gonna punch him into the sunDo you have no faith in Chris "Boulder Puncher" Redfield?
>>3037641Pretty sure he's alive, he had a cameo in Umbrella Corps. Also, it's only circular if you're not a friend of justice. Otherwise it's a straight line.
>>3037624>We have to be absolutely certain no part of him survives. Eating him is the only way.Not if you absorb his memories by eating him. Sometimes it just isn't worth it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUOtNt1uilE
>>3037644Personally I kinda hope Jill gets to finish him off, get revenge for what he did.
>>3037587You see a thick, though shell, almost impervious to harm. It was so simple, honestly. Almost like child's play. And just as suddenly, the memory fades away, and you notice your skin is... different. It wasn't skin any more, but instead, a layer of crystal coating your body like a shell. >CRYSTAL SKIN: A fusion of a common Invader evolution and Magical Girl Kaledioscope's innate power, Crystal Skin affords virtual immunity to slashing and stabbing attacks while being resistant to most others types of damage. However, it is vulnerable to blunt attacks. Will activate to trauma on reflex. Conscious full body armoring costs energy."Pretty!" Carol squeals as she hugs you. "I've never seen this before!""It's definitely something." Mom grunts. "Guess we should be heading back now. Bet your robobuddy is getting worried.">Yeah, we should head back.>Hold on, I want to test this more.>Other

>>3037676>rainbow crystal wingsTrust me anon, you do not want wings made from any form of light.
>>3037661"Yeah, let's head back." You nod. And so you, Mom, and Carol head back to the house, with Carol still teasing you a bit as she usually did on the way back. Already, the sun was starting to sink low in the sky when you all got back. HK was still sanding at attention at the door, like a royal guard. Her eyes flicker and glow when she sees you all return. "It is good to see you've returned safely." HK say calmly. "I have been standing guard on the property. Nothing to report.""Just the way I like it." Mom nods as she walks past HK and into the house. "Hey, since we're all together again, how about I crack open a few cold ones?"Oh no.Mom was trying to get you all to drink.Again."Lewis, is something the matter?" HK asks curiously. "Your vitals spiked for 0.63 seconds.">Aw fuck it, it's a family tradition anyways.>Oh hell no, not this time.>Other

"Come on."You lead HK back into the house and to the kitchen where you see Mom has already pulled out the whiskey bottle, much to Springfield' disapproval. "Alice, I thought we went over this." The Doll caretaker frowns. "You shouldn't drink in excess. It's hazardous to your health.""Heh, with all the shit I've exposed my body too, a bit of inebriation should be the least of your worries." Mom rolls her eyes as she rolls out the shot glasses. "Come on, Lewis, let's see if you've toughened up in the time you were gone!""Yeah!" Carol giggles as she pick up her own glass."Lewis, this is a course of action I do not advise." HK warns. "Don't worry, it shouldn't be too bad..." You try to assure her. You reach down and pick up one of the filled shots glasses, glancing at the powerful amber liquid within."Well, bottoms up!" Mom says happily. >Roll 12d0

>>3037737Fortunately, you're able to hold your own in the first round, the shot merely burning its way down your throat. Neither Mom nor Carol looked phased at all. Carol was some shapeshifting alien horror that you weren't completely sure could even get drunk at all, and Mom was... Mom. "Aw yeah! That's the stuff!" Mom says happily as she pours the next round. Springfield continues watching with a disapproving expression, but doesn't do anything to stop it. "Hey, HK, you wanna give this a try?""My systems would merely recycle the alcohol into chemical fuel." HK states simply. "It is not affected in the same way biological humans are.""I'll take that as a yes." Mom grins as she holds a glass out to HK.HK gives you a curious look, as if wondering whether to take it from her or not. >Tell HK it's okay.>Better not risk it.>Other

Rolled 10, 6, 8 = 24 (3d20)>>3037745"Don't worry, HK, it's okay." You nod."All right then..." HK carefully takes the shot and puts it to her lips.That's the cue for everyone else to drink, as well.>Roll 1d20

>>3037785That also reminds me if Alice has an armoury hidden somewhere on the property filled with plenty of Magical Girl/Invader War era weapons that we can borrow.Does she still have The Switzerland?
>>3037773And... rather expectantly enough, HK doesn't appear to be affected by the alcohol at all. "This is an... interesting chemical composition." HK observes, her expression still blank."Awwwww, that's no fun!" Mom rolls her eyes. "Why even make Dolls lifelike if they ain't gonna get drunk!""There there, Mom! I'm sure you can find someone who can keep up with you!" Carol giggles."Doubt it." Mom says as she grabs the bottle and starts drinking from it. You're laughing so much you can barely finish your own shot. The drinking continues into the night, until finally, Carol falls asleep in her chair. Guess even she had her limits, in a way. "Shit, maybe we did go a little too far." Mom chuckles. "I think I'll go get some fresh air. Walk it off a bit."As Springfield thoughtfully drapes a blanket over Carol, Mom heads back out the door, slightly unsteady as she goes."Should we pursue?" HK asks you. "As a precaution?">Yeah, let's go check up on Mom.>I think she wants some privacy.>Other
>>3037795>>Yeah, let's go check up on Mom.

>>3037795>Yeah, let's go check up on Mom.
>>3037795"Nah, I think she just wants some privacy." You assure her. "Don't worry, she doesn't really lose any of the fighting ability even when drunk. Guess it was something she conditioned herself for."Carol, despite being asleep, snorts loudly. "Then perhaps it would be prudent to retire for the night so you can regain your stamina." HK advises.You look to HK, and then Springfiled, who is absolutely beaming. You can't help but feel Mom's caretaker passed on some teachings to HK here. >Yeah, I can use some sleep.>Nah, think I'll go for a walk, too.>Other
>>3037837>>Yeah, I can use some sleep.

>>3037872You sleep is dreamless, or if you did dream, you retained no memory of it. However, what you DO remember is being rudely woken up by HK, who just the night before was recommending you get as much sleep as you can. "What's wrong?" You grunt, trying to wipe the sleep out of your eyes. "We having incoming." HK warns you. "An object has breached the perimeter alarms and is approaching at a rapid velocity. You rush to the front porch, where Mom is already out there, rifle in hand. Carol was nowhere to be found, though she was most likely lurking somewhere in hiding, just in case."Looks like a single car approaching." Springfield reports to Mom as she stares down the single main road that leads to the house. "No signs of extra occupants.""What a minute..." Mom frowns as she squints. "Is that..."You find your heart stopping when you finally see it too.The quickly approaching car was a Raccoon City police car. Only one person came to mind who would both know the location of Mom's house and be part of the RCPD."Lucina...?" You mumble in surprise.>And that's it for tonight! We'll be continuing things on Saturday night, so don't miss it!

Seeing as we'll most likely have Lewis and Carol's kids inhereting powers, how much of a warzone will the family property turn into?
>>3039336Better, since Magical Girl powers are hereditary, we might get to a MHA situation where everyone has a quirk.
>>3039345Everyone with Magical Girl powers... that sounds scary.
>>3039345>>3039366Is this Loki's true goal? To make Homo Superior/Novus?>>3039336Alice is definitely going to be shellshocked trying to get all the little kids managed.
>>3039345>>3039366>>3039394I wouldn't be surprised if their kids start spreading their genes across the world within the century if their Invader powers are used to 'enhance' reproduction.We just need Lewis and Carol to learn how to do adjust some parts. Lewis will have to make little Lewie ribbed for her pleasure not mentioning how lewd Carol could potentially be.
>>3039646Other Magical Girls survived too, like Mirai, Kanako and Mary. As well as the ones on the prison station and any hiding on earth once the companion's control ended.
>>3039646>ribbed for her pleasureNot sure if Lucina would agree to that unless she's one of the more adventurous types. Hell, maybe she wants a bit more than that?
>>3039669Oh yeah, I forgot about those girls. I wonder what they're doing.Mary probably owns a few hospitals
>>3040079At the end of MGH, Mirai was a cop, Kanako was part of the JSDF Navy and Mary owned hospitals if I remember right.
>>3037889"Huh... she must've figured something was up." Mom grumbles a she watches the RCPD police guard tearing down the road. She sets down the rifle she had been carrying all this time, but you note she leaves it somewhere clearly visible and easy to reach. It leans against one of the columns supporting the front porch. "Maybe I should-""I'll handle this, Lewis." Mom cuts you off. "I'll handle this. She doesn't have jurisdiction out this far, anyways.">Let Mom handle this.>You should handle this.>Other
>>3040213>>Let Mom handle this.

>>3040213>You should handle this.Mom REALLY doesn't want us getting with Best Girl, does she?
>>3040254Well of course not she's your mother that would be weird.
>>3040254Maybe she thinks Lucina just wants to get her hands on our genes?
>>3040254I'd imagine she would be overly protective of us when it comes to most potential partners.
>>3040213>>Let Mom handle this.She has a lot more experience with this sort of thing.
>>3040213"I can handle this Mom." You grin slightly as you step forward ahead of her. "Besides, it's not like I did anything wrong, right?"Mom just pauses and gives you a hard, cautious stare."...fine." She finally decides. "Just remember, she can't know about the magic.""Got it, Mom." You nod. "Don't worry, I know."Mom just gives a deep sigh and heads back to the porch, plopping down in one of the chairs set up outside.At this point, the police car has reached the house proper. Is screeches to a stop and Lucina comes barreling out of the driver's seat."All right, Alice, where did take- Lewis?"Lucina pauses in surprise as she finally realizes its you meeting her. "Huh, doesn't look like much of a kidnapping." ST-AR remarks casually as she calmly exits from the passenger car. "Lucy, what are you doing out here?" You blink. Lucina is about to speak as if she's about to go on a rant, but catches herself and takes a deep breath to calm herself down. Yeah, she was well aware of Mom's disapproval of your once close friendship. "It's good to see you're well, Lewis." Lucina says, now a bit calmer. "Though I do admit, I was a bit concerned when you were so suddenly whisked away to... your mother's home."Lucina glares at Mom, who's still lounging behind you. >Well, it's been a really, REALLY crazy week. >What, I can't visit my own mom from time to time?>Other
>>3040335>>What, I can't visit my own mom from time to time?
>>3040335>What, I can't visit my own mom from time to time?
>>3040335>>What, I can't visit my own mom from time to time?>You alright Luce? You're getting paranoid on me.
>>3040335"What, I can't visit my own mom from time to time?" You frown. "Come on, Lucina, you're not THAT cold.""It is when-" Lucina pauses and sighs, glancing at the porch where Mom, Springfield, and HK were watching the little conversation. "Can we just talk somewhere privately? Just between you and me." >Sure. Let's go for a walk.>I'd rather not keep secrets from Mom.>Other
>>3040386>Sure. Let's go for a walk.
>>3040386>>Sure. Let's go for a walk.
>>3040386>>Sure. Let's go for a walk.Hang out in the barn?
>>3040403Are you suggesting what I think you're suggesting?
>>3040386"Sure, let's go for a walk." You say, motioning for her to follow and old trail that wound around the perimeter of the ranch. "Thanks." Lucina nods as the two of you head out. You note that both ST-AR and HK were following as well, that at a respectful distance."Can never get rid of them, huh?" Lucina sighs."Not ever." You chuckle. Lucina is silent for a few more minutes. It's only when the house is a distant blip that she finally speaks up. "Lucas, I don't know what's going on between you and your mom, but I'm worried.""About what?" You blink."I've..." Lucina looks away, as if recalling a memory she's not proud of. "When I made police captain, it gave me access to a lot of government networks. High security rating. And I... I did background checks on your mom.">You were being cautious. I don't blame you.>How could you do something like that?!>Other
>>3040480Congratulations on being promoted! Where's Whesker? Mom's past is best left alone, Lucy.

>>3040488This works. Also, that's kinda creepy Lucina. This power isn't going to turn you into a stalker is it?
>>3040480"And what reason did you have to investigate?" You ask suspiciously. "It's just..." Lucina sighs. "Just a lot of small things I've noticed over the years. How she's always so private and guarded all these years. Always being so anxious when me and Nemo are around. And then there's the fact of how she's even friends with my parents. My mom, especially, who specializes in researching old Magical Girl and Invader technology. And then you just up and disappear after a job..."Lucina runs her hand along the wooden fence marking the perimeter of the ranch. A warm breeze blows, rustling the grass around you. "So... I ran the background check. And I didn't find anything.""Would that be a good thing?" You raise an eyebrow."No, I mean, I literally did not find ANYTHING." Lucina grabs your hand and holds it tight. "The war years, they're completely blank. Gone. Completely expunged. That's not normal.""Lucina-""Lewis, just let met finish." Lucina closes her eye and takes a breath. "Is your Mom a Magical Girl?""That's something you should ask her yourself." You frown."You and I both know what's she's going to answer with." Lucina squeezes your hand. "I need to hear it from you.">Yeah... she is.>Of course not.>Other
>>3040552>>Yeah... she is.>>Other"I didn't tell you, you don't tell anyone, we need to go talk to mom about making her background less conspicuous."

>>3040552>Other>"She's my Mom. Always had, always will be."
>>3040552>>Of course not.

>"She's my Mom. Always had, always will be."
>>3040552>Of course not.
>>3040552Magical Girls lost their powers after the war. How would I know?
>>3040552>Other"So I have to choose between lying to you, and betraying my mom's trust? She was. And then she was a Hunter. But Magic doesn't exist anymore. And fuck you for making me choose."
>>3040552>Does it even matter? Magic doesn't exist anymore. And if she doesn't want to talk to you about it, that's her decision. Don't push it on me.
>>3040560This. We don't want to hide it, but we can't just go against our own mother's wishes. If she wants to hide it, it's her choice.
>>3040552"Of course not. Everybody knows Magical Girls aren't around anymore." You shake your head. You didn't want betray Mom's wishes. If she didn't want Lucina to know, then you couldn't tell her Besides, you technically weren't lying, either. Mom wasn't a Magical Girl, at least not anymore. She was just... Mom. Lucina exhales loudly. Exasperation? Relief? It was a bit hard to tell."Maybe I'm just overthinking this..." Lucina grumbles. "Wesker just quits and appoints me as his replacement, and he suddenly gets a position on the Umbrella Board of Directors...">Inquire more about Wesker.>Just let Lucina keep venting.>Other

>>3040620"And, well, I just don't know what the heck is going in Wesker's mind!" Lucina groans. "Did he appoint me because he felt I was qualified for the job? Or is he trying to set me up for failure?""Does it matter? You have the opportunity to run the department your way now." You shrug. "I thought that's what you wanted.""I'm just a little wary" Lucina sighs. "Just because Wesker got sent upstairs doesn't change the fact Umbrella is still a big benefactor to the department. I'm not a scummy corporate shill like Wesker, but that doesn't mean I can just ignore them.""Well, all this corporate politic stuff isn't really my thing, but if you need something shot or blown up, I can do that. I won't even charge you for it." You grin."Please, let's not make my job any harder." Lucina chuckles. "But it's good to see you're okay. When Carol told me what happened I feared the worst.""And you drove all the way out here to check up on me. I appreciate it." "Still, I've left a lot of work piling up on my desk." Lucina sighs. "I better head back, especially if things are fine here.">I think that's for the best.>Why not stay a bit longer? Your mom's coming to do a final checkup.>Other

>>3040703>>I think that's for the best.
>>3040703"Why not stay a bit longer? Your mom's coming to do a final checkup on me." You grin. "I'll be able to get back to work once she gives me a clean bill of health.""Please don't. I enjoy the peace and quiet." Lucina banters. "But I suppose I can stick around a little longer." You both turn to see that ST-AR and HK were apparently in a conversation of their own."Huh... wonder what they could possibly be talking about." Lucina frowns. "HK never seemed to be the talkative type.""She isn't." You confirm. >See if you can get close enough to eavesdrop on them. >Seems like a good opportunity to sneak away from them.>Other
>>3040758>See if you can get close enough to eavesdrop on them. Tell me your secrets raifus.

>>3040758>>>See if you can get close enough to eavesdrop on them.
>>3040758"Hey, how about we shake them off for a bit?" You grin."Oho, just like old times?" Lucina raises an eyebrow."Exactly like old times." You nod. "Well, where should we go?" Lucina wonders in a playful tone. >The old treehouse.>The secret bunker. >The barn.>Other
>>3040802>The old treehouse.
>>3040802>>The old treehouse.
>>3040802>The old treehouse.Let's hold hands while we run.Do we still have our old toys and drawings in there?
>>3040802>>The secret bunker.
>>3040802>The secret bunker.
>>3040802"Hey, let's go the treehouse." You grin. "Wonder if it's still there?""Five bucks it's totally collapsed by now." Lucina chuckles. "So little faith in our workmanship!" You gasp."It's been almost a decade already. My hopes aren't high." Lucina huffs. "Plus, it was my dad that did all the work, remember?""Hey... I helped." You mumble. "Anyways, now's our chance! Let's go!"Still holding your hand, Lucina tugs you forward into a patch of tall grass and you both make a dash for a small copse a trees. Nestled in there was an old treehouse you, Lucina, Nemo, and Carol used to play as kids. It was nice and secluded, and a good escape from Mom's often overbearing nature. The treehouse itself was a rather simple thing. Basically just a wooden shack built on top of a tree, with the only access being a set of wooden rungs nailed directly into the trunk. Looking up, you could see that the treed had grown in your absence, but the treehouse didn't. The whole thing looked to be on the verge of falling apart. "Yeah, that looks kinda dangerous." Lucina frowns. "You just sound like you're scared." You tease."What?" Lucina puts her hands on her hips, completely miffed. "I'm just being cautious here!">Maybe Lucina has a point. >This is your chance to totally show off to her.>Other
>>3040844>This is your chance to totally show off to her.

>>3040844>>This is your chance to totally show off to her.
>>3040844>Maybe Lucina has a point.
>>3040844"Oh come on, it still looks perfectly fine!" You laugh as you start climbing the old wooden rungs. "You're going to get yourself hurt gain." Lucina groans. >You worry too much, Lucina. >Well, I can count on you to catch me, right?>Other
>>3040895>Well, I can count on you to catch me, right?And then she fails to catch us.
>>3040895>Well, I can count on you to catch me, right?

>>3040844>So little faith>>3040895>>Well, I can count on you to catch me, right?
>>3040895>>Well, I can count on you to catch me, right?just like old times

>Don't worry I'll catch you>Accidentally impales him
>>3040940Yup, just like old times indeed. I bet Lewis did exactly the same thing before and knocked each other out by landing on her, resulting as some kind of really embarrassing position.
>>3040940"Well, I can count on you to catch me, right?" You grin as you continue to scale the treehouse. "I mean, you've always been there for me, you know?"There's no immediate reply, and you turn around worried and catch Lucina, her face beet red. "Um, Lucina?" You blink. "SorryIjustrememberedsomethingIgottago." She blurts out and takes off. >Um... what?>Better go see if she's okay...>Other
>>3040960>Better go see if she's okay...

>>3040960>Better go see if she's okay...Did she remember a time capsule in the treehouse containing an embarrassing letter to her future self, or maybe a love letter?
>>3040972We could potentially give ourselves the perfect jawline if we really wanted.

>>3040960Better go see if she's okay...
>>3040975At this rate, she had her view on us change quite quickly since we've been in Racoon.First, we were childhood friends, then kind of an annoyance in Racoon, then a pretty damn good cop if we applied ourselves, and now we're here.

You ask curiously. "Ah... it's nothing. Just some old memories about this place." Lucina mumbles, her face still pink. "You did used to be pretty cool, after all...""What do you mean USED to be?" You raise an eyebrow. "A-anyways, it's not important!" Lucina stammers. "It was just a really long drive here and-">All right, if you say so.>Now who's being the troublesome one?>Other

"Well, anyways, I think we've been walking around enough." You laugh. "We should go grab some brunch while we can.""Right." Lucina nods, taking a deep breath and regaining her composure. The two of you stroll back towards the house, running into ST-AR and HK along the way."You two sure took your time." ST-AR says nonchalantly. "Doing a lot of catching up, I suppose?""Nothing happened, Star." Lucina grunts as she walks past. "Come on."ST-AR follows her partner, while HK turns to you. "I sense that Lucina's heart rate and blood pressure are higher than normal. Did something occur?" She asks innocently. >I don't think you'd understand. >I'm pretty sure she remembered why she liked me.>Other
>>3041045>>3041039Ah fuck, Loki's gonna try recruiting our kids in the future isn't he?Just more crazy stuff happening on the family ranch.

>>3041047The implications in both of these options...
>>3041047"I'm pretty sure she remembered why she liked me." You say, unable to suppress as smile.""I... see." HK nods as she follows you back to the house. You smell Springfield's breakfast before you even see it. Eggs benedict. Seemed like she knew more than just pancakes. It looked like she had set them all out on the porch, where Carol was already wolfing them down by the mouthful. "Hi Rufinaaaa!" Carol waves, her mouth still full of egg and biscuit."Hey, Carol. Still haven't learned to swallow I see." Lucina smiles. "Oh!" Carol finally gulps down her food. "Sorry about that! I still forget sometimes!""Looks like you two sorted things out, huh?" Mom says simply. "In a way." Lucina says coolly, still regarding Mom with caution. Guess she still didn't fully trust her.HK and ST-AR head back inside to help Springfield clean up the kitchen, since neither of them really ate, leaving you with Mom, Carol, and Lucina. "So, looks like you got a T-Doll around to bother you, too." Mom observes. "Gift from your mom?""She's a test unit being trialed by the RCPD." Lucina responds. "Part of an initiative to support officers in the field with a partner more able to respond to dangerous situations.""You mean a more expendable partner." Mom rolls her eyes."ST-AR is a valued asset, and is irreplaceable in my opinion." Lucina grunts. "Lewis, you'd say the same for HK, wouldn't you?">Damn right.>I mean, they're still T-Dolls...>Other
>>3041063If the two of them ever decide to get intimate, Lewis has to tell her the truth.

>>3041079"Damn right." You nod. "HK's done a lot for me, and I'd like to think that it's more than just her being programmed to be that way.""Yeah!" Carol butts into the conversation. "HK's like my cool little sister!""Hm, well, I guess you two have a point." Mom nods and pauses. "Oh, and speak of the devil."The little breakfast gathering is interrupted by the roar of helicopter engines as one sets down in the field just outside the house. As the rotors wind down, two figures emerge. One is a tall, rather handsome yet rugged looking man. Mom's old war buddy Leo and Lucina's father. And of course, in a signature white lab coat, was Egan, Lucina's mother, and apparently the big mysterious force behind T-Dolls. "So, somebody called for a checkup?" Egan asks casually. "Oh, Lucina, I didn't expect to see you here, too.""Hello, mother." Lucina smiles. "How's work going?""Oh, the usual." Egan shrugs. "Poking this, prodding that. Seeing what happens after.""Looks like you're doing well, Alice." Leo chuckles. "The arm giving you any trouble, lately?""Nah, it's been pretty good to me so far." Alice grins. "Still roaming the world?""Yeah." Leo sighs. "Pure invader DNA is just getting harder and harder to find these days. All the other megacorps are snapping up what few sources are left.""Dear, that's why we're branching out into robotics." Egan chides. "How are ST-AR and HK doing, anyways?""She's been incredibly invaluable so far." Lucina replies."Same here." You say."Good, good." Egan then walks up to you with an injector gun. "I'll just inject some diagnosis nanites and see what's up.">All right>Can't it be something a little less... invasive?>Other
>>3041103>All rightCan't be all that bad, right?
>>3041103>Can't it be something a little less... invasive?WAIT, the nanites might not react well with the Activated invader powers, similar to how Lewis's biomods reacted to his awakening.
>>3041103Ask HK how she feels about thatif she's not comfortable with the notion, just tell Egan she's performing perfectly, she doesn't need to bother with this.
>>3041116oh wait you mean lewis. I thought you meant HK is getting diagnostic'dnevermind then
>>3041103"All right." You grunt as Egan presses the injector to your arm. "All right... the preliminary diagnosis seems good. No genetic abnormalities outside of expected parameters.""So... I'm good." You conclude."For now." Egan says simply. "The nanites will be active for another couple of weeks so i can monitor things in real time, but so far, you've got a clean bill of health.""Well, good news, I guess." Mom shrugs. "Guess you'll live a little while longer, Lewis.""Mom." You groan. Well, with a clean bill of health, and a better handle on... whatever it was you were. Guess it was time to get back to work.>And that's it for tonight! Next thread will be on Friday, so don't miss it!
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>3041132>real time monitoringhmmLets avoid rolling 1s so we dont have to draw on magical boi powers...
>>3041132Thanks for the thread Merc.>>3041142There's always that super biomod that we can get from last mission. We could probably assimilate that.
This reminds me, Carol and Lewis should probably fortify their apartment or set up some escape plans just in case some scary guys decide to come knocking.Best case scenario is that it's kept rather quiet. Worst case scenario is that the whole damn city is on the lookout for "Two highly dangerous rogue bioweapons", and they'll have to leave the city.
>>3041132Well, Egan hasn't aged a day.
April Fool's event.Lewis woke up with a body of little girl. Carol decides to mess with Lewis that she was a little girl all along. Lucina was decieved very hard making Lucina hug Lewis harder than she used too forcing to call her Onee-san. Then forced to work with Carol that she is also a part time model which she poses embarrassing position. At the end where Mom decides to visit it was broken because Mom can't really hold secrets. Chaos ensues Lucina is shellshocked.The end
>>3042031Sounds like a fun time going from Hunter to Hunted.>inb4 Hunters across the city are called in to hunt the 'bioweapons' down for billions of cash and lucrative contracts. >Sam calls Lewis to tell him of the hunt of a lifetime while he's in the thick of it>"Lewis, get your ass to HQ! We got a one in a million here!">*sounds of gunfire, and explosions*>"Sorrybosscan'tmakeitbye!"
>>3043667>>3042031Could always have it be a reason to have a Lewis vs Lucina fight, and police being mislead by saying that they're shapeshifters who disguise themselves as people they know to create doubt and hesitation.
>>3045094Isn't that literally what the Invaders did? Which is kind of unfortunate because it's sort of the truth referring to our character and his little imuto/nee-san
>>3045094Or could go for the classic idea of Lewis knife fighting against her until her knife slashes open a gash on his helmet/mask, revealing his identity.>>3045370Well, that certainly is quite a bit of ammunition to use against the two of them. I'm not sure if Lucina would be able to make peace with the idea that her childhood friends were Invader hybrids.
>>3045969Lucine herself is a genetic abomination. I think she would cope well.
