n 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!Well, the Boss wasn't particularly happy about it when you called her, but she grudgingly allowed you a couple days off. You suppose that your figurative slavemaster was tided over when Umbrella's payment got wired to her.Regardless, it wasn't as if she was going to personally fly out to physically drag you back. That was something she'd probably send Hank to do for her and you were fairly certain you could handle the old man, assuming he didn't go AWOL himself. That said, Carol and HK were pretty late in coming back, so you decided it was a good opportunity to get some rest yourself. You had taken the other suite and quickly settle into bed. When you wake up though, you see...>HK>Carol>Mom>All of the above>Nobody
>>3352074>>HKWaifu bot demands morning headpats.
>>3352074>All of the above
>>3352074>>CarolDisguised as HK wearing something lewd.
>>3352074>HK>Laying in our bed with us>Just silently staring at our face
>>3352147Do you think there are any markings to ID any T-Doll to separate them from humans?
>>3352157They probably have electronic signatures, not to mention how heavy they are.
>>3352157Could always have a tattoo for where to access the inner workings, or a barcode somewhere.
>>3352074The first thing you see is HK in your room, and she's...>Standing guard at the far end of the room.>Sitting next to the bed.>In bed with you.
>>3352175>>In bed with you.
>>3352175>In bed with you.
>>3352175>Sitting on the bed with youYes I'm going there.
>>3352175>>In bed with you.We need to really come up with a real name for HK. Preferably with an H first name and a K last name.
>>3352193Helen Keller->>3352213Fuck, beat me to it.
>>3352175She's lying in bed right next to you. Not in any intimate way, mind you. It seemed like she just laid down without putting any thought into it. Or maybe she wanted to show intimacy but wasn't sure how to convey it. You honestly weren't too sure. Still, she was close enough that you could feel the residual heat emanating from her body, almost like a real human. The engineers that built her certainly spared no expense to maintain the illusion. "Good morning, Lewis." She says, her eyes wide open and showing no signs of sleepiness at all. "...morning." You respond. >Is this about what we talked about before?>Carol put you up to this, didn't she?>That's not funny, Carol.>Other
>>3352247>Is this about what we talked about before?
>>3352247>Is everyone else up is or is it just us?Poker Face activate.

>>3352247>That's not funny, Carol.
>>3352193I swear this quest and the previous has more discussion on theme naming than any other Merc Quest.>Alice in Wonderland: Alice, Lewis, and Carol>L Names: Lewis, Lucina, and their future kids>whatever HK is gonna getMakes me wonder what Carol is gonna name her kids if she ever gets any.>>3352247>Carol put you up to this, didn't she?

>>3352247>>Carol put you up to this, didn't she?
>>3352247>>3352259Change to>Carol put you up to this, didn't she?
>>3352247"Is this about what we talked about before?" You ask as you raise an eyebrow, still staring right at HK."Inconclusive." HK responds simply. "I realize that this is not part of my normal pattern of behavior but... I suppose I had something that you would call an 'urge'?""An 'urge', huh?" You wonder. "Can T-Dolls even feel those?""We are not programmed to. That is a fact." HK says as her body shifts slightly. Was she feeling uncomfortable? "My best hypothesis is that this may be a residual memory from the mindmap imprinted in my processor.""You're saying that you're being influenced by the person you're based off of?" "That is a distinct possibility." HK replies flatly. >That sounds great!>That sounds a bit concerning.>Other
>>3352328>>That sounds a bit concerning.The real question is if HK wants to develop as her own person, or 'bring back' the original personality. Last thing we need is for both of them clashing to the point HK becomes a mental mess of personalities.
>>3352328>>That sounds great!
>>3352328>>OtherHow does she feel about that?
>>3352328>>OtherHow do you feel about that?So, knowing what you know about yourself, what do you think that person was like?
>>3352328>OtherHow do YOU feel about it?
>>3352328>How do you feel about that?
>>3352328>>That sounds a bit concerning.
>>3352340To add to that, does she want to explore who she was? It may interfere with our job.
>>3352328>Other>How do you feel about that?It's a simple but effective question.
>>3352328>That sounds a bit concerning.
>>3352328>Other>How does she feel about that?
>>3352328"How do you feel about it, then?" You ask. "Experiencing thoughts that aren't part of your programming?""I find myself... uncertain." HK blinks, a dull glow still emanating from her eyes. "Usually something like this would indicate that I am... defective in some way. But I also know that you probably would not consider that a bad thing.">Probably not.>Of course not.>Other
>>3352398>Of course not.
>>3352398>>Of course not.
>>3352398>>Of course not.Should we tell Egan?
>>3352398>>Probably not.it depends. having individual thoughts is cool, but not if it comes from leftovers of an unknown template.
>>3352398>>Probably not.As long as she knows not to do anything too freaky like that stalking thing.Her justifying it was cute though.
>>3352398>Probably not.We're heading into Florida Man's swamps, best be on guard.
>>3352398>Of course not.Though we should report it to Egan
Small note, isn't HK not supposed to know about the brainmap? Does this mean that one of Egan's backdoor or safety protocols is faulty?
>>3352459Valen told us all about it.
>>3352398"Of course not." You grin as you instinctively ruffle HK's hair, like you always did with Carol. "I'll always accept you for what you are, HK. No matter what you choose to be.""That's.. .nice to hear." HK finally smiles, if only slightly. "Oh dear, what would Lucina think if she saw this, I wonder?" Mom coos from somewhere just out of your line of sight. You immediately whip your head around, and see Mom leaning over the opposite side of the bed with a amused grin on her face. "Morning, son." She chuckles.>Goddamnit, Mom.>Good morning, Mom.>Other
>>3352488>Good morning, Mom.
>>3352488>>Good morning, Mom.
>>3352488>Morning Mom>Is there any food nearby for me to stuff my gob with?
>>3352479I know Egan told us all about the digital mindmap being based off of real people after we got back from magical bootcamp, and said it was a secret. Did Valen tell us about it separate of that?
>>3352488"Good morning, Mom." You sigh. After all these years of her rampant privacy invasion, you had pretty much gotten used to it. Given what Carol had told you before and what you know now, you couldn't blame her having to constantly check on you deal with her rampant paranoia. Still, it was nice to see her in a good mood for once. "Anyways, we ordered a ton of room service because I told Carol she wasn't allowed to cook while we're here." Mom jerks a thumb to the door that would lead into the main living area. "Come on out when you're ready.""Yeah, sure thing." You nod. "Would you like to me give you some privacy as well?" HK asks, still lying next to you.>Yeah, that'd be nice.>Nah, you can stay.>Other
>>3352567>>Yeah, that'd be nice.
>>3352567>Nah, you can stay.
>>3352567>>Nah, you can stay.
>>3352567>Nah, you can stay.>Other: You’re part of the family now. Why wouldn’t want to come along?
>>3352567>>>Yeah, that'd be nice.Are we going for Lucina or HK or both?
>>3352594We still gotta get Lucy on a date/vacation away from her job, which might be harder than it may seem. Nevermind considering her reputation might be at stake if people find out she's going out with a BOW Hunter.
>>3352567>Yeah, that'd be nice.>>3352594Definitely Lucy but if she doesn't mind HK being around...
>>3352613HK and STAR becoming maids helping to take care of the house and kids?
>>3352567"Nah, it's all right, you can stay." You assure HK. "Affirmative." You then take the opportunity to get up and stretch briefly to wake yourself up. You can hear blankets rustling behind you as HK likewise gets up. You grab your phone from the nightstand, and then you pause, wondering if you should call up somebody...>Lucina. Better let her know what's going on. >Hank. See if the the office hasn't burned down in your absence.>Nemo. You should talk to her about HK.>Other
>>3352619>>Hank. See if the the office hasn't burned down in your absence.
>>3352619>>Nemo. You should talk to her about HK.
>>3352619>>Lucina. Better let her know what's going on.We are staying a bit longer than expected, plus we can also try to find a souvenir for her.I'm thinking of a dinosaur tooth necklace, or maybe even dinosaur shaped sweets/cookies.
>>3352619>>Lucina. Better let her know what's going on.
>>3352619>Lucina. Better let her know what's going on.
>>3352619>Nemo. You should talk to her about HK.>>3352626>not dino shaped chicken nuggets
>>3352619>Hank. See if the the office hasn't burned down in your absence.
>>3352619You decide to give Lucina a call, just to let her know what's going on. You dial her up and wait as the phone rings several times...>Roll 1d20
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>3352668Hey, Lucy, are you busy?
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>3352668
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>3352668
>>3352671>>3352673>>3352675Is she talking to us while she's preoccupied?
>>3352668Finally, Lucina picks up, and the first thing you hear is...the roar of a car engine in the background?"Lewis, what's going on?" Lucina says cheerfully as you hear the unmistakable sound of rubber screeching against pavement and the wail of a police siren."Sorry, am I interrupting something?" You ask with a bit of concern. "It sounds like your busy-""No, no, it's fine! Just a little routine traffic stop! Nothing for you to worry about!" Lucina responds.You... weren't quite totally convinced."Lucina, you really should concentrate on the road." ST-AR's voice says calmly in the background. "We're on speaker, so it should be fine." Lucina grunts. "So what's going on? Not getting into more trouble, I hope.""Nah, I was just letting you know I'd be back a bit later than expected. Family stuff and all." "Let me guess. Your mom showed up to complicate things." Lucina groans. >It's nothing like that.>She did cause some problems for a mutual acquaintance.>Other
>>3352691>It's nothing like that.
>>3352691>>She did cause some problems for a mutual acquaintance.
>>3352691>>She did cause some problems for a mutual acquaintance.You know how parents are when their kids are in dangerous situations.
>>3352691>>It's nothing like that.
>>3352691>She did cause some problems for a mutual acquaintance.
>>3352691"She did cause some problems for a mutual acquaintance of ours." You say rather vaguely. Even though Mom, Carol, and HK had already swept the entire suite for listening devices, you still couldn't be a 100% sure that your phone wasn't being listened in on. "Huh, I see." Lucina grunts as there's more tire screeching.Was that the sound of a bullet whizzing by?"Lucina, I'm going to have to take the wheel from you if you're going to keep doing this." ST-AR warns. "All right, all right!" Lucina sighs. "Look, Lewis, I got some stuff to take care of, so we'll talk about this when you get back, okay?""Sure thing. Good luck out there." You can't help but grin as Lucina hangs up. You glance up and notice that HK has already left the bedroom, no doubt joining Mom and Carol outside. You quickly pull a shirt on and head out."Lewie! Just in time!" Carol says happily as you see what looks to be a miniature buffet laid out on the main table. "Food's here!""All on Umbrella's dime, apparently." Mom smirks as she pours herself a cup of coffee. "So, so, for the VIPs, they offer meals made out of dinosaur products!" Carol bounces up and down excitedly. "Like, dino meat, dino eggs, all kinds of stuff! It's so coooool!"Wait, then did that mean-"My visual scans indicate the food should be edible." HK notes, as if trying to reassure you. "Tastes kinda like chicken, honestly." Mom shrugs as she takes a bite of dino sausage. >Might as well dig in.>Ask Carol if she, well, actually ate a live dinosaur.>Other
>>3352739>Might as well dig in.>>Ask Carol if she, well, actually ate a live dinosaur.
>>3352739>>Ask Carol if she, well, actually ate a live dinosaur.
>>3352739>Might as well dig in.
>>3352739>Might as well dig in.>Ask Carol if she, well, actually ate a live dinosaur.Please tell me she grabbed a Spinosaurus or a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
>>3352739>>Ask Carol if she, well, actually ate a live dinosaur.I just feel that she'll, at one point in time in the future, consume so much biomass that she'll have to make a planet of flesh and bone just to store it all.
>>3352739>Might as well dig in.>>3352752So sorta like that living planet sized Invader Queen last quest? Maybe Carol would be able to split her mind to live in a human-sized fragment if she wants to interact with people?
>>3352739>>Ask Carol if she, well, actually ate a live dinosaur.Curious.Horrified, but curious.
>>3352739"Wait a minute, so Carol..." You frown as you pick up a plate and start stacking bacon and pancakes on it. "Did you eat an actual live dinosaur while you were here?""Mmmmmmm, I ate like, 5." Carol shrugs. "Umbrella won't be happy about that if they find out." HK warns."What, they were gonna destroy them all anyways!" Carol pouts and pats her chest. "At least this way, they'll continue to live on in some way!""You just wanted to see what they tasted like. Stop acting so deep." Mom sighs as she slaps Carol lightly on the back of the head."Moooooom! Carol whines."HK, you've been silent for a while." You turn to the T-Doll."My apologies." HK blinks. "I was merely analyzing a map of the area in an attempt to route the most efficient tour path.""That doesn't sound fun at all." Mom gripes as she sips her coffee. "Where do you all want to go?""The beach!" Carol chimes."Well, how about you, bolts?" Mom looks to HK."I do not have any particular preference." HK points out. "Man, what a killjoy." Mom rolls her eyes. "Okay, what's the first place you want to go to?""The closest location of interest is the aquarium." HK points out."I guess it's something." Mom sighs."What about you, Mom?" You ask."Ah, well..." Mom pauses as her cheeks turn a slight pink. "I heard they had a pretty mean off road course here and it's been so long since I've been able to let loose at the wheel..."Oh no. You remember very well at how "well" Mom could drive.Hm, but maybe you should get something for Lucina...?>Beach>Aquarium>Off-road course.>Shopping>Other
>>3352771>BeachBEACH EPISODE TIMELet's try to beat up anyone that tries to hit on our sister!
>>3352771"Looks like it's a great day for the beach." You say. "Yay! Then it's decided!" Carol hops into the air happily. "Come on, HK! Let's get dressed!""W-wait!" HK yelps as Carol starts pushing her back into the bedroom to change."Well, this is going to be interesting." Mom gives a sly grin. "Bet you're wishing Lucina were here, huh?">No comment. >No way, this is a family thing.>Stop being right all the time, Mom.>Other
>>3352802>No way, this is a family thing.FAMILY
>>3352802>>No way, this is a family thing.

>>3352802>No way, this is a family thing.
>>3352802>Stop being right all the time, Mom.
>>3352802>>Stop being right all the time, Mom.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>3352802Well, looks like it's time for a roll off!1. Family thing2. Right
>>3352822"Stop being right all the time, Mom." You groan. "Heh, you're just so easy to read." Mom chuckles. "But look, if you're serious about making things work with Lucina-""Mom." You sigh."I'm not gonna stop you. Not this time." Mom continues. "You're a big boy now. You have the right to make your own fuckups.""Well, when you put it that way...""At least you'll have me and Carol to drag you out of it." Mom smiles softly. "It wasn't a luxury I had when I was your age.""Yeah. Thanks, Mom." You smile."Okay! Let's go!' Carol says as she kicks open the door. Both she and HK were now wearing light jackets to cover themselves up. Well, in a relative fashion. Their bare legs were exposed for all to see, and of course Carol's and HK's were practically perfect. After all, Carol could look whatever she wanted and HK was literally designed that way."Hey, give me and Lewis a chance to get changed." Mom chuckles as she ruffles Carol's hair. "Heheh!" Carol giggles. "And Lewis, no peeking! Our swimsuits gotta be a surprise!">Fine, fine.>No promises.>Other
>>3352835>>Fine, fine.Always nice to have a surprise. Unless one of the swimsuits happens to be that revealing one Alice wore all that time ago.
>>3352835"Fine, fine." You roll your eyes. "I won't peek. Promise.""Heheh, I'll keep you to that!" Carol giggles. Mom was already gone, having returned to her bedroom suite to change. You follow suit, heading over to your own bedroom to get changed. It doesn't take long for you, though. You just had to put on a simple pair of swim trrunks. Honestly, in this case, guys really had it easy. Still, you found your mind wandering, regardless. It suddenly hits you that you were going to the beach with three of the arguably most beautiful women on the planet. There was Carol and HK, both literally engineered to be as perfect as possible, and Mom certainly was quite the looker herself, despite her age. And they were also all related to you in some way or another. You suddenly couldn't shake the feeling that this day was going to be a long one...>And that's it for tonight! We'll ccontinue things on Saturday so do't miss it!
>>3352855Thanks OP!It’s nice to see that even in umbrella resorts there can be sunny days
>>3352855Thanks for the run, boss!Just imagine if Lewis could turn into a girl~
>>3352855And so you find yourself walking down the resort's main avenue towards one of its main attractions, the large tropical beach. The sun was bright and there wasn't a single cloud in the sky, with a cool ocean breeze blowing. Perfect outdoor weather for a place like this. You were taking the lead as Mom, Carol, and HK trailed slightly behind. They were all still wearing shorts and light jackets as casual wear, opting to hide their swimwear until they reached the beach proper. However, there was one important difference, in that Carol, well, wasn't Carol. "Come on, Mom." Carol pouts, her now black hair fluttering in the wind. "I wanna go out in my normal form!""And attract a small army of paparazzi? Not a chance." Mom sighs as she ruffles Carol's hair. Carol was now in one of her "secondary" appearances, one you vaguely remembered in your younger days. With long, flowing black hair, purple eyes, and snow white skin. She was practically a spitting image of Mom if she were ten years younger, not that Mom didn't already look ridiculously young for her age. "I concur." HK nods. "Give the need to keep your and Lewis' natures confidential, additional public scrutiny would not be conducive to operational security.""But stiiiiiilll!" Carol's pout intensifies. It was honestly really weird seeing someone wearing Mom's face making that sort of expression. "Come on, Lewie! Back me up here!">Carol should be able to look how she wants.>Mom has a point here.>She looks cuter this way.>Other
>>3355499>She looks cuter this way.
>>3355499>She looks cuter this way.Lift her up, spin her around, and put her on our shoulders.I hope we can support her weight.
>>3355499>She looks cuter this way.>Give carol a headpatI'm gonna die from the cuteness.
>>3355499>Carol should be able to look how she wants.
>>3355499>>She looks cuter this way.>Give a headpat while sporting the biggest smug grin from being the Big Brother
>>3355499>>She looks cuter this way.We're still gonna beat up anyone that hits on Carol.
>>3355499>>3355512Also supporting >>3355568For being the older brother for once.
>>3355499>>She looks cuter this way.
>>3355499>>Carol should be able to look how she wants.
>>3355499"I think you look cuter this way, Carol." You chuckle.Carol's face instantly turns pink like her preferred hair color and she haughtily crosses her arms and pouts. You can't help but pat her little head."Hmph! Meanie!" Carol grumbles, but takes no form of resistance at the contact.You're about to laugh at Carol's response when you feel a sharp smack to the back of your head, courtesy of Mom."OW! What the hell, Mom?!" You yelp."Don't you go all fucking Oedipus on me." Mom grunts, her face also a nice shade of pink."So does Lewis prefer companions with a smaller body type...?" HK wonders aloud as she looks down at her own body.You get the feeling your little comment backfired far more than you imagine it would have.>Come on, you're all overreacting here. >Kidnap the Carol!>Other
>>3355681>Come on, you're all overreacting here.

>>3355828>HK don't think too hard about it.
>>3355828>>HK, don't think too hard about it.Adaptability is your biggest advantage.
>>3355828>HK, don't think too hard about it.If she's that concerned about it, she could always try having a back up body that's a bit different than her standard one.
>>3355828"HK, don't think too hard about it." You tell her. "It was just a joke.""Noted." HK nods.Thankfully, the beach was starting to come in view. The salty sea breeze, the sounds of crashing waves, and the endless buzz of people all clear signs. Also, as part of your special Umbrella privilege, you had access to a plot on the beach exclusively owned by the resort you were staying in. A quick scan of special wristbands you were wearing, and the guard on duty lets you through the gate.The difference was like night and day. On the public side of the cordon, it was packed to the brim with vacationers, with barely any space in between the endless carpet of beach towels and umbrellas where tourists have staked their claims on the sand. On your side, though, there was more than enough space. "Yay! Let's do this!" Carol says as she happily strips off her jacket. Mom does so with slight reluctance, and you can see that Carol seemed to have deliberately picked a matching swimsuit, both of them wearing black bikinis that matched their hair. HK's, meanwhile, showed that Carol's eye for style was still strong, as well. She had a dark blue bikini with white striping, creating a contrast with her silver hair. You had to remind yourself not to stare at them too much. They were all family in a way to you, after all. "So, what do you twerps plan on doing?" Mom asks as she stretches, inadvertently showing of her lithe build. "I wanna go swimming!" Carol chirps."I'd like to observe this new environment." HK says simply. "Huh, well, I'm sorta in a mood to wreck some bimbos at volleyball." Mom grins. "What about you, Lewis?">Go swimming with Carol>"Observe" with Hk.>Team up with Mom at volleyball.>Other
>>3355926>Team up with Mom at volleyball.

>>3355926>Go swimming with Carol
>>3355926"Well, I guess I can go wreck some nerds with you on the court, Mom." You shrug. "You're gonna need a partner, anyways.""Heh, pretty thoughtful of you." Mom grins."I'll go swimming, then!" Carol says happily as she dashes off towards the water."Hey! No transforming or eating the wildlife, okay? You'll ruin your appetite!" Mom tuts."Okaaaaay!" Carol replies, totally not listening. "I will stand guard over your belongings, then." HK says obediently as she lays out a beach towel with perfect precision. "All right, let's go get a match or two in." Mom pats you on the shoulder. "Don't wanna leave Carol out there alone too long. She might try looking for sharks to eat.""Really...?" You blink as you follow Mom to the area set aside for beach volleyball courts. There were already quite a few people there...>Roll 1d20

>>3356076Bet she sips on the T-virus in a tea cup.
>>3356035"Hey theeeeeeeeeeeere, Lewis!"You freeze when you hear the very familiar voice of SOPMOD and you reluctantly turn to see the T-Doll waving at you from one of the courts, her black metallic arms clearly visible now. And standing next to her was Hunk, bare chested but still wearing his Umbrella gas mask. It was... a rather sight."Friends of yours?" Mom raises an eyebrow."Just some Umbrella mercs I work with from time to time." You reply."Umbrella, huh?" Mom raises an eyebrow."Ohmygosh, who IS this?" SOPMOD asks as she shuffles forward, ogling Mom with a curious stare. "Hey heeeey, Lewis, tell meeeeee!"You glance at Mom and she just gives a casual shrug. >She's my mom.>Someone I met just now.>My sister.>Other
>>3356107>>Someone I met just now.Oh god that mental image.
Rolled 1 (1d3)>>3356107Where do I start, they all look so good.Rolling for my choice.
>>3356107>OtherLong lost cousin once removed?
>>3356114>>3356107The dice hath spoken for me>She's my mom.
>>3356107>>She's my mom.I mean, if we say she's our sister, then they'd probably think of our super hot super model sister.
>>3356107>>My sister.Yes, my older sister
>>3356120Could justify it as a bunch of gene mods making her look younger.
>>3356107>She's my mom.
>>3356107"Uh, this is my mom, Alice." You awkwardly introduce her."NO WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY." SOPMOD gasps as she shuffles forward even closer to Mom. "You look WAY too young to a mother! Seriously! You gotta be packing some super expensive mods or something!""Ah, well, it just sorta turned out that way..." Mom mumbles. "SOPMOD, what have I told you about interacting with strangers?" Hunk grunts. "Don't crowd up to them like that.""Sorrrrry!" SOPMOD winks. "So, you two looking for a game or something? Me and Hunk here have been SUUUUUUPER bored. Poor guy here doesn't have any idea what to do with a company enforced vacation! Can you believe that?""You didn't have to mention that." Hunk grumbles. "So about it? I can tell your Mom's got a serious hitting arm!" SOPMOD giggles.You see Mom visibly wince at that. You're pretty sure SOPMOD was just using an expression and didn't actually suspect the true nature of Mom's Invader arm. "So? How about it?" SOPMOD asks.>Ha, you're on.>Sorry, we were just passing by.>Other
>>3356192>>Ha, you're on.
>>3356192>Ha, you're on.
>>3356192>>Ha, you're on.Are we ever going to ask Alice how it felt for her when Carol ate her arm, or Carol how it tasted out of morbid curiosity?
>>3356208She'd probably describe it as absolutely delicious because of the magic, yet at the same time disgusting due to it being her mother.
>>3356258Think she ever fantasizes about the taste? Not like a whole bite but just a little lick?
>>3356192"All right, you're on." You grin. "Mom, you think we can take 'em.""Oh, of course." Mom grins as she cracks her knuckles. "I can easily deal with a tin can.""Heheheh, I like her already!" SOPMOD giggles as she dashes to her side of the court. From what you can see, Hunk looked to be taking up the forward position near the net, which made sense. His larger build and slower speed meant he was more suited to block incoming shots. Meanwhile, SOPMOD could use her superior speed to respond from the backline. On the other hand, you and Mom seemed to be on par, at least by physical size. You had some pretty big strength and defensive boosts thanks to your biomods, but Mom was a goddamn magical girl with an Invader arm, so you didn't really have a good judge of your capabilities compared to hers. "Don't sweat it, Lewis." Mom shrugs, already guessing at your concerns. "Just take whatever position makes you comfortable.>Take up the front position>Take up the backline.>Other
>>3356284>Take up the front position
>>3356275Probably has a few dreams of remembering the taste. Imagine if Lewis could somehow recreate it by removing some parts of his crystal skin like that party mask.>>3356284>Take up the front position
>>3356284>>Take up the front position
>>3356284>>Take up the backline.
>>3356284"I'll take the front, then." You say. "All right." Mom grins. "I'm in a serving mood today, actually.""Heeeey!" SOPMOD calls out as she tosses a volleyball over the net. "We'll let you guys take the first serve!"Heh, you're gonna regret that." Mom chuckles as she casually tosses the ball straight up. >Power shot. Blow it straight past their defenses.>Feint. Drop the ball where they aren't expecting it.>Other
>>3356435>Power shot. Blow it straight past their defenses.

Rolled 5, 9, 2 = 16 (3d20)>>3356524...
>>3356531Mom leaps into the air, and you can only watch in awe as she slams her palm into the volleyball massive force, making a sound like a miniature thunderclap. For a brief second, you could see her arm morph, flexing unnaturally as it carried out Mom's movements. The volleyball speeds towards the net with the force of a cannonball, and you wouldn't have blamed anybody diving for cover rather than trying to block it. But Hunk was not the type of man to back down from impossible odds. Hunk leaps up to block the shot, and it sort of works. The ball hits him square in the chest, and if the ball was served by anyone who was Mom's lesser, it would have easily bounced off and back towards your side. But in this case, the ball was carrying so much momentum, it knocks HUNK backwards and he drops into the sand, the ball plopping down right next to him. "Oh my goooooooooooooood!" SOPMOD gasps. "You killed Hunk!" "I'm still alive." Hunk grunts, clearly in pain. "Shit, I think I overdid it." Mom says with a clear lack of concern. You can see she's clearly trying not to visibly smile."So, you gonna get up?" SOPMOD asks her partner. "I think I'll just lay here for a bit." Hunk wheezes. "Damn, guess I really did overdo a little." Mom winces as she massages her shoulder. "Guess I should quit while I'm ahead and check on Carol.">Go with Mom to check on Carol.>Head back to see how HK is doing. >Doesn't seem right leaving SOPMOD alone on the beach.>Other

>>3356576Shit actually change my vote to>Head back to see how HK is doing. We can leave SOPMOD here, our robit has been left alone far too long. Who knows how many beach chads are flirting with her and putting weird ideas into her head.
>>3356556>>Go with Mom to check on Carol.
>>3356556>Doesn't seem right leaving SOPMOD alone on the beach.>Help get HUNK over to some shade And then>Head back to see how HK is doing.
>>3356556>>Head back to see how HK is doing.
>>3356556Well... it didn't seem right leaving SOPMOD alone on the beach. Not only did you feel a bit sorry for her being left alone, but you were also a bit concerned of what she'd get up to if she got bored without supervision."So uh, you okay there, Hunk?" You ask the Umbrella mercenary as he lays on the ground."Don't worry about me." Hunk coughs. "I've been hit with worse.""Whatever you say." You shrug as SOPMOD trots over and plants an umbrella next to Hunk to give him some much needed shade. "Well, looks like it's just us two, then!" She chirps happily. "What should we dooooo?" >Maybe try to get her and HK to hash out their differences.>This might be a good opportunity to get SOPMOD to open up to you.>Just hang out, you guess.>Other
>>3356632>This might be a good opportunity to get SOPMOD to open up to you.

>>3356632>Just hang out, you guess.vacation time
>>3356632"Well, I actually need to go check on HK and make sure things are okay on her end." You say."What? Boooooring." SOPMOD rolls her eyes. "I'll throw in some ice cream." You offer."Oh, you really do know how to get a girl's attention!" SOPMOD's mood instantly reverses. "All right, let's go, then!"You grab some ice cream bars from a passing vendor, making sure to grab an extra for HK and you and SOPMOD start making the trek across the sand to where HK had set up. "So, just curious, but how exactly are things going on between you and HK?" SOPMOD asks casually as she takes a big bite out of her ice cream bar, munching it with those fanged teeth of hers. "You still trying to pretend she's a real person?">I don't have to pretend.>It's nothing like that.>Other
>>3356702>I don't have to pretend.
>>3356702>Are you sure you're trying to convince me? Or are you trying to convince yourself?MUST. BE. DEEP.
>>3356702>>I don't have to pretend.We are all real human beings.Totally not aliens and robots.Nope.
>>3356702>>I don't have to pretend.
>>3356702"I don't have to pretend, SOPMOD." You say simply. "Who are you trying to convince, here?""Ooooooh, I didn't expect you to go deep like that." SOPMOD chuckles. "Guess I shouldn't be surprised, though. You aren't Hunk, that's for sure." "Are you actually happy working with Hunk?" You raise an eyebrow."He ain't an asshole, if that's what you mean." SOPMOD shrugs. "He always makes sure that I'm in tiptop shape all the time, but I don't doubt for a second he'd ditch my ass if I end up being a burden to him.""And you're okay with that?" You blink."Well, it's a nice feeling being useful to someone." SOPMOD shrugs. "Until you're not." You point out."So I'm gonna ride that feeling as far as I can take it." SOPMOD responds casually. "Just cause we don't age doesn't mean we don't have an expiration date. Just enjoying things until mine rolls around!"However, before you can respond to that, you finally reach the spot HK had claimed. She's simply sitting on her towel reading a book.However, you do notice quite a gathering of young men around her. After all, now that you think about it, HK was designed to look incredibly attractive. She was doing a good job of ignoring them, but you're guessing that it was more of her single mindedness and lack of social maturity than anything else. "Oh boy, are we gonna ride in and save our fair maiden?" SOPMOD gives a murderous grin. >You want to see how HK will react.>Better chase these guys off before someone gets hurt.>Other
>>3356837>>You want to see how HK will react.

Rolled 2, 9, 10 = 21 (3d20)>>3356837...
>>3356902You decide to pause and see how HK reacts. It's difficult to hear from the distance you're at, but you could guess that it was just a bunch of rich tourists trying to hit on what they presumed to b ea pretty loner girl. However, HK continued to ignore, or more accurately, be completely unaware of the romantic advances directed at her. Some of the guys soon lose interest and wander off for better opportunities. There's still a knot of about six though, that stubbornly stick around. Unfortunately, one of the guys seems to lose his patience and puts his hand on HK's shoulder, gripping it tightly. You at once realize this was a gigantic mistake on his part, as you see HK's body stiffen and her eyes widen for a brief second. Her response is preprogrammed and swift, her hand reaching out and grabbing the guy's wrist. You can hear the snapping of bone from where you are a split second before the bloodcurling scream. "Niiiiiiiice." SOPMOD whistles, genuinely impressed. "You know, maybe she ain't so boring after all!""Not the time, SOPMOD." You seethe. Already, one of the victim's friends was dragging him away from the scene, but the others remained, obviously angry about what happened to their friend. HK merely stared blankly at them, waiting for them to make the first move. This was a dangerous situation all around. >You need to get HK out of here.>You need to get rid of these guys, fast.>Other
>>3356909>You need to get rid of these guys, fast.
>>3356909>You need to get HK out of here.It's now a emergency evac!
>>3356909>>You need to get rid of these guys, fast.
>>3356909>>You need to get HK out of here.Guess it's too late for them to see any obvious markings that she's a Doll.
>>3356909>>You need to get HK out of here.Watch Lewis just swooce on in there.
>>3356909>You need to get HK out of here.If it was Lucina in this scenario, we'd probably let her go to town, or join in.

>>3356919Speaking of which, we better plan our first date with her whenever she has free time.
>>3356909Crap, the last thing you needed was these guys to try and rough up HK. They'd all end up in the hospital or worse. However, you didn't have much time to to really formulate a plan. You could make your presence known and try to intimidate them into backing off, but these guys already had their blood up and might not necessarily be in any mood to de-escalate. In light of that, you could probably ambush them from behind and physically chase them off or knock them out before they could get seriously hurt. Either way, you would have to act fast.>Intimidate>Ambush>Other
>>3356944>IntimidateWe don't want no trabbu!
>>3356944Damn, well, your best bet to not escalate was to try and get them to back off. You start to walk forward when SOPMOD speaks up."Whoa, hey, this looks kinda fun! You need any backup for this?">You could use the help.>You can handle this yourself.>Other

SOPMOD sweetly assures you.You're not quite convinced, but you don't have time to argue as you arrive at the site of altercation."Gentlemen." You say calmly and politely. "Do we have a problem here?"The little gang men turns to face you, anger in their eyes. This was going to be tricky.>Roll 1d20+2

>>3357056I'm thinking our Invader side took over for a bit, and may have given us something useful to use.
>>3357061What if it IS SOPMOD's presence that tipped the dice in our favor?
>>3357064Their cosmetic mods are no match for our combat mods (with a hint of bishonen sparkle)!
>>3357054You don't back off, though, and take another step forward, trying to puff up your body as much as possible to make yourself look larger. "I don't appreciate you harassing my friend." You growl. "If you leave now, I won't call the cops. Or the hospital.""S-she started it!" One of the guys yells, pointing at HK. "She broke my buddy's hand!""And we'll break a LOT more than hands if you keep pressing your luck!" SOPMOD says cheerfully as she visibly flexes her clearly robotic hand into a fist. "I could always use a few more souvenirs, too! An eyeball from each of you would be nice!""Fuck this, I don't want to mess with these crazy bitches." One of the guys grunts and storms off.This seems to gives the rest of the group the excuse they need and they break off as well, still muttering insults and slurs but otherwise departing peacefully. "Your intervention was not necessary." HK notes. "I had already gauged that they had a 2% chance of success if the confrontation turned physical.""Yeah, well, thankfully it never got physical." You sigh. "Boy are you ungrateful!" SOPMOD rolls her eyes as she plops down on the towel beside HK. "Man, I'm beat! Guess I'll just take a break here!""Why is she here?" HK asks you."I just wanted to come along to pester you!" SOPMOD giggles."I didn't want to leave her running around unsupervised." You explain. HK then turns to face SOPMOD again, who just stares back before holding out one of the spare ice cream bars she had been carrying."Ice cream?"Well, this was going to be interesting...>And that's it for tonight! Next thread will be on Friday, so don't miss it!
>>3357072>bishonen sparkleOh no.
>>3357081Thanks for running OP!
>>3357072In all honesty, I kind of see Lewis looking kinda like P5's Joker.Just throw in a bit of blood whenever we get some of his crystallized flesh forcibly removed.>>3357081Thanks for the run, boss!
>>3357083Of course Lewis has those sparkles! Just don't tell any infatuated women that the sparkles are essentially crystal dandruff.
Do you believe that Carol is kind of person to be secretly jealous of Lewis for finding a romantic partner to be with?I'm thinking that she's been clingy lately so she spends as much time with her family as possible due to everyone's comparative life spans.
I just hope Lucina is ok
>>3357868I bet she'll be just fine. We should only really worry if we receive a phone call from STAR that she's hospitalized. That'll be the day that everyone in the RPD will know that Lewis and Lucina are seeing each other.Honestly, I'm more concerned for her mental health. God knows what sort of pressure she's going through with her job. Nevermind the expectations put on her for being peak human.
>>3358309If we need her to blow off some steam, there's always the previously mentioned camping trip to the scenic Arklay Mountains. Just the two of them, and nature. No news crew, no hustle and bustle of city life, no social status, and no violent BOWs trying to murder them all.
