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!You're not sure how it is that vacations end up making you feel even more tired than when you left, but this one was no exception. You're fighting to keep yourself mobile as you disembark the Umbrella charter plane after it landed back in Raccoon City. As expected, SOPMOD had parted ways with you back at Rockfort Island, presumably to go track down that "mystery dinosaur" which was obviously Carol in disguise. Mom decided to leave with Carol, so the both of them were going to be cruising around the tropics for who knows how long,"Lewis, do you require assistance?" HK asks with a hint of concern as she follows you out of the plane, lugging the majority of the equipment and baggage effortlessly. "Nah, just shaking off some jet lag." You yawn."It's still morning here." HK points out. "Where should we go?">I'm heading home.>Better drop by the office.>Pay a visit to Lucina.>I need a drink.>Other
>>3390429>>I need a drink.
>>3390429>>Better drop by the office.
>>3390429>>I'm heading home.
>>3390429>Better drop by the office.>Also could you remind me later to write down a grocery list when we get back home? The fridge needs to be restocked again.
>>3390429>Better drop by the office.
>>3390429"I think we'll drop by the office." You say. "Just to check up on the others.""And I assume to pass around the gifts you got for them." HK adds."Yeah, that too." You nod. It's simple grabbing a cab to take you to the office. The driver doesn't bat an eye at the ridiculous amount of luggage HK casually crams into the trunk. Being a Raccoon City cab driver means you've seen a lot things and learn not to ask a lot of questions besides where to go and how fast.It's a quick drive there, and already you're feeling a bit more relieved being back on familiar territory. G is already at the door to greet you, and quickly snatches all the luggage HK is carrying, obviously insisting on carrying it all herself. "Welcome back, Lewis." G says simply. "Things have been... quiet without you around.""I don't know if that's supposed to be a compliment or not." You frown."Just an observation." G replies coolly. "So how are things going right now?" You wonder. "The Boss is currently at a business meeting and is not present. Nemo and Artya are in the lab section and Hank is filling in for the Boss in administration.""Wait, the Boss put HANK in charge?" You gasp."Under my supervision." G says sternly. "Right, right." You calm down. The Boss wouldn't do something THAT crazy without a contingency or two.>Go see Nemo and Artya the lab first.>Go catch up with Hank first.>Other
>>3390558>>Go catch up with Hank first.
>>3390558>Go catch up with Hank first.
>>3390558>>Go see Nemo and Artya the lab first.
>>3390558You keep following G to the office area, where you could see Hank at his desk, practically hidden behind a wall of stacked up paperwork. Even in this digital age, paper just never truly died, especially for old timers like Hank."I reeeeaaally hope you're bringing a fresh pot of coffee, G." Hank grumbles. "Because if I have to forge the Boss' signature one more time I'm gonna-"Hank then looks up and sees you and HK."Oh, the vacation boy's finally come back, too." Hank grunts in annoyance. "Must've been fun, huh?">Oh yeah, it was the best.>Eh, you didn't really miss anything. >Vacations are overrated, honestly.>Other
>>3390673>Oh yeah, it was the best.
>>3390673>>Eh, you didn't really miss anything.
>>3390673>>Oh yeah, it was the best.
>>3390673"Oh yeah, it was the best." You nod, giving them most smug and taunting grin you could manage. "Sun, beach, girls, the whole shebang!""G, as the acting boss, I'd like to nominate myself for a vacation." Hank grumbles. "Then there wouldn't be anybody around to run the office." G responds sternly. "Just submit a request to the Boss per company procedure.""That harpy would never approve it." Hank sighs. "I do not recommend calling her that." G warns."Even with the Boss gone I can't have any fun with this tin can around." Hank sighs and glances at HK. "No offense.""None taken." HK responds. "So, what brings you to my little corner of misery?" Hank asks as he leans back in his chair. >Just wanted to catch up on what was happening.>I come bearing gifts.>Figured you might need a little help.>Other
>>3390754>>I come bearing gifts.
>>3390754>I come bearing gifts.
>>3390754>>Just wanted to catch up on what was happening.>>I come bearing gifts.
>>3390754>Figured you might need a little help
>>3390754"Well, I come bearing gifts." You smile as you reach into your bag and set the raptor claw you bought for him down on the small patch of clear space on Hank's desk. "Ah great, something I can use to stab you with." Hank nods appreciatively as he picks up the claw and inspects it. "This is the real thing?""That's what the shop claims." You shrug. "Huh. Well, damn shame we won't be seeing more of these around." Hank sets the claw down on the desk. "So they really took all those dinos out behind the shed?""Pretty much, yeah." You confirm. "Guess Umbrella figured that venture wasn't all that profitable.""Well yeah, otherwise InGen wouldn't have been bought out like that." Hank sighs. "Still, they used to be one of the frontrunners in the whole biotech field. Sad to see them go like this.">Better give G her present before Hank goes full Old Man mode.>You can let Hank wax on a bit more.>Other
>>3390849>>Better give G her present before Hank goes full Old Man mode.

>>3390849Uh oh, Hank was about to go into his Old Man mode. Something he was prone to do when he was bored. You've heard enough odd stories during those long and boring stakeout jobs."Anyways, G, this is for you." You hand her the box containing the dino tooth necklace. "Ah, thank you." G nods appreciatively as she accepts the gift. "If only Master were this generous.""Heeeeeeeey!" Hank narrows his eyes. "What's that supposed to mean?""Anyways, I'll leave you to your work, then!" You give a mock salute before breaking off. >Go see Nemo and Artya.>Better leave the Boss' gift on her desk.>Other
>>3390943>Go see Nemo and Artya.
>>3390943>Go see Nemo and Artya.We better have Boss' gift in a rather expensive looking box to raise expectations.
>>3390943>>Go see Nemo and Artya.
>>3390943>Better leave the Boss' gift on her desk.
>>3390943Hm, well, you should probably pay a visit to Nemo and Artya, at the very least to drop off their presents. However, the recent heart to heart you had with HK definitely had you being more curious about the true nature of the T-Doll. Maybe Nemo could shed more light on it?>You should bring up HK's behavior.>Better to keep it to yourself.>Other

>>3391059Well, you figure that HK's apparently shifting or warping directives seemed to be concerning enough to bring up to Nemo at least. However, you were a bit torn on whether you should do it in HK's presence. What would she think about it?You glance at HK, who was still loyally following you and she returns the glance, bit of curiosity in her blank eyes. >Might as well talk about it with HK present.>You should talk with Nemo privately.>Other
>>3391068>>You should talk with Nemo privately.
>>3391068>Might as well talk about it with HK present.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>3391068Rolling for my vote boss.
>>3391068"Hey, HK." You turn to your T-Doll. "Do you mind helping G get all the gear we borrowed stowed away? We did pack pretty heavy for that job.""Of course." HK nods. "I'll be standing by once we're finished.""Great. Thanks a lot." You grin.As HK pivots around and heads back to the office area, you continue on to the lab, where it seemed Nemo and Artya were clearly slacking, both of them huddled around a tv screen and presumably playing some sort of game on it. "Hey, Lewis." Nemo says softly as her hands tap away on the controller they hold. "Finally back?"Artya just silently nods, her own hands occupied with the controller so she couldn't write on her tablet. "Yep, and I come bearing gifts." You grin as you take out the two stuff dinosuars, a T-Rex and a triceratops.Artya is instantly across the distance between you two and seizes the stuffed T-Rex. She was always a sucker for free stuff. You just casually toss the remaining stuffed animal, the triceratops, towards Nemo and she casually catches with a single hand, her remaining one still working her controller. She had way too much free time to get good at that sort of thing. "So, where's HK?" Nemo asks, still not looking up from her screen. "Hope she didn't get too damaged.""Just a few scrapes, nothing major." You assure her. "But there's something I want to talk about regarding her." "Oh? And what is it?" >It seems like HK's programming isn't working as intended.>HK seems to be acting more... human.>Other
>>3391137>HK seems to be acting more... human. It's great.
>>3391137>>HK seems to be acting more... human.
>>3391137>>HK seems to be acting more... human.>>Is that indicating anything problematic?
>>3391137>HK seems to be acting more... human.
>>3391137>>It seems like HK's programming isn't working as intended.She's doing that thing where an AI interprets directives as it pleases.
>>3391137>>It seems like HK's programming isn't working as intended.
>>3391137>HK seems to be acting more... human.>For starters, she has this hangup that maybe her programming isn't working as intended.An AI with performance anxiety, can you believe that?
I can't help but feel that if Nemo took after her Mother, then she'd have some suspicions about Lewis and Carol, or notice something a bit off.
>>3391137"Well, I've been noticing as time goes on that HK's been acting... well... more human." You report. "At least, that's what it feels like to me.""Oh?" Nemo actually pauses her game and sets down the controller. "Do tell.""Well, I first noticed that HK's been essentially stalking me." You summarize. "I confronted her about it, assuming that it was something off on her protection directives, but HK told me that she was doing it out of fear being seen as useless.""Hm, that is odd." Nemo puts a hand to her chin. "While T-Dolls are supposed to have prioritization for self preservation, none of them are supposed to have any programming that's supposed to simulate fear. It would be counterproductive to their intended roles.""Which is why I found it really odd." You agree. "Do you think that HK might be, I don't know, evolving?""Too early to say." Nemo frowns as she turns her attention to her computer. "The problem with trying to simulate human behavior as closely as possible is that you might do too good a job of it. Doesn't really help that a T-Doll's base operating systems are almost incomprehensibly complex.""That doesn't sound to helpful." You frown."Because it's not." Nemo sighs and leans back in her chair. "There's only one person on the planet who'd probably know, and that's... my mom." "Auntie Egan?" You blink."Well duh, she's the one who patented the basic T-Doll OS." Nemo rolls her eyes. "Every T-Doll you see today uses software based on her work."You notice a hint of annoyance coloring Nemo's tone. She naturally had a few... issues with her mom, considering the whole family situation with Lucina, and you honestly couldn't blame her. >Maybe we can talk to her directly about it?>I'm fine with just your input, Nemo.>Other
>>3391216>I'm fine with just your input, Nemo.
>>3391216>Other"Well, I'd still like to hear your input, Nemo." Or is that too close to "I'm fine with just your input, Nemo"?
>>3391216>>Maybe we can talk to her directly about it?
>>3391216>>I'm fine with just your input, Nemo.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>3391216...
>>3391247"I'm fine with your input, Nemo." You smile. "You've never been wrong before.""Heh, I guess you're right." Nemo mumbles.Artya then softly elbows Nemo."Q-quit it!" Nemo barks. "Okay, I've got a working theory, but it's just a theory.""Hit me with it." You nod. "Okay, I'm assuming you just went off and authorized HK to alter her own code.""Um, yeah." You nod. "It was to help her stay flexible in unconventional situations.""So that's one mystery solved." Nemo grunts. "There's only been two other T-Dolls I know of that have had that same capability unlocked.""ST-AR and SOPMOD." You guess."Bingo." Nemo nods. "T-Dolls are programmed to be learning machines, to rapidly adapt to numerous situations. It's what puts them a step above BOWs. Most commercial T-Dolls have that learning capability artificially throttled. Can't risk having them being TOO smart, you know? But the first run prototypes still have that functionality.""So you're saying that HK just straight up learned how to feel anxiety?" You blink. "That's what it sounds like." Nemo nods. "Likewise, events occurred to make ST-AR and SOPMOD the way they are as well. In humans, trauma influences behavior, so it's only natural that entities built to act like humans will act in the same way."That makes you a bit curious on what exactly ST-AR and SOPMOD went though to be so aloof and psychotic respectively. >Can we get files on ST-AR and SOPMOD?>That's all I need to know. Thanks.>Other
>>3391257>That's all I need to know. Thanks.
>>3391257>>That's all I need to know. Thanks.We don't really need to pry into their history do we?

>>3391257 >>Can we get files on ST-AR and SOPMOD?
>>3391257"That's all I need to know. Thanks, Nemo." You smile as you ruffle her hair. Artya is quick enough to take a picture at the exact moment. "H-hey!" Nemo pouts. "That's not funny!" However, the moment is interrupted by a knock at the door. "Erm, is it okay to enter?" HK's voice asks from the other side."Oh, you can come in." Nemo replies. The door slides open and HK enters."My apologies, Nemo, but I did suffer some minor damage during the mission." HK reports. "It's nothing serious, but my diagnostics are reporting a 6% loss in mobility and a 9% loss in overall combat efficiency.""Well, you at least still have your limbs attached." Nemo yawns. "She'll probably have to stay here overnight to get tuned up, unless you need her for anything else?">Put off the repairs for a bit.>Might as well get HK fixed now.>Other

>>3391288>>Might as well get HK fixed now.
>>3391288"HK, you might as well get fixed up now." You nod. "Can't have you breaking down on the next mission, can we?""That would be highly inconvenient." HK nods. "Don't worry, I'll take care of her." Nemo says, leading HK to rear of the lab where the repair equipment is located. Artya just gives you a silent wave, still clutching the stuffed T-Rex in her other arm. >Maybe you should wait for the Boss to come back.>You should head home. >You could pay Lucina a visit.>Other

Show it!"That's when you bring out the box, which you had deliberately made to look expensive, choosing to use wood like some kind of antique box. The Boss practically snatches the box out of your hands and greedily opens it, only to see the simple mug laying within. >I hope you like it, Boss.>TIME TO LEAVE.>Other

However, you're smart enough not to stick around to be the victim of her wrath, and you're already moving and out the door when she starts yelling."LEWIS YOU"RE SO GETTING YOUR PAY DOCKED YOU ASSHOLE!!"She was totally kidding. She'd eventually cool down and forget about it.Maybe.You hope. >And that's it for tonight! We'll continue things on Saturday so stay tuned!

>>3391398You swiftly make your escape from the office, your car blazing out of the garage and onto the Raccoon City streets.Well, the office was going to be a little hot right now, so you couldn't really go back for the time being.And it's just now that you realize, both Mom and Carol were off on the high seas, HK was in for maintenance, and everybody else was back at the office.

You've gotten "picked up" often enough that you're somewhat of a regular here, so it was probably odd to them that you were apparently willingly visiting. You head to the front desk to sign in, and the officer on duty looks at you warily right as the phone on his desk rings. He picks it up, pauses as whoever's on the other end speaks, and then hangs up."Sir, just head down that hallway and take the elevator." The officer points to the hall behind his desk. "It's considered a restricted are, so please don't deviate from the path."Well, guess being buddies with the chief did have its perks, though you wonder why Lucina didn't just come down to see you herself. You follow the officer's instructions and enter the open elevator, which heads up to the top floor.As the doors slide open, you see ST-AR casually sitting at a desk positioned in front of what you assume to be the Chief's office. It was a bit amusing, seeing like that. "Hey." She says simply. >Promoted to secretary, huh?>Is Lucina free?>So about what you told me on the phone earlier...>Other

"Maybe I should've just told the desk officer to kick you out.""Hey, don't be like that." You chuckle. "I guess they didn't program you to have a sense of humor?""Nope." ST-AR crosses her arms. "Anyways, Lucina's a bit busy at the moment. She's in a meeting of sorts. She's just wrapping up, so she should be back in a couple minutes.">Meeting with who?>None of my business.>Other

>>3394213"Meeting with you?" You ask, a bit curious."Some big shot from the BSAA." ST-AR shrugs. "Naturally, the fact that she's talking to Feds is making a lot of people nervous.""I guess so." You nod. "Guess the local guys don't like federal agents barging in on their turf.""Or, they're being called in to investigate something the locals can't be trusted with." ST-AR shrugs. "Or maybe, to investigate the locals themselves.""I mean, it's not like the RCPD has had the greatest reputation to start with.' You point out. "True. Maybe she's trying to clean up the force. Maybe she's got her eyes on a big fish." ST-AR frowns. "But she hasn't told me anything.">You sound a bit annoyed at that.>Lucina's got a bad habit of keeping things to herself.>Other

>>3394383Lucina had always been terribly self conscious after the true nature of her conception came to light. It had put a lot of pressure on her to perform to expectations, and she quickly learned to bottle up all of her thoughts and concerns so as not to make people worry or think less of her. You also suspect that there was a bit of shame to it as well. A lot of her peers ended resenting her out of jealousy, and you weren't too proud to admit that you were among them for a time. You were young and dumb, after all.But you felt it wasn't your place to say all these things to ST-AR."You should probably ask Lucina about it, if you can pry it out of her." You reply calmly. "Hmph. Figures." ST-AR sighs.And as if on cue, the elevator doors slide open and Lucina walks out, pausing when she sees you."Lewis?" She blinks. "Star, why didn't you tell me he was here?""You were in a meeting, remember?" ST-AR rolls her eyes. "Couldn't very well have you walking out just to see your boyfriend."Lucina seems to be taken aback at that last word ST-AR utters.>Well, she's not wrong.>It's not like that at all!>Other

ST-AR sighs as she gets up from her chair. "I'll go grab some coffee. Don't make a mess while I'm gone."ST-AR heads down into the hall and around the corner, out of sight, leaving you alone with Lucina."So, erm, I guess you can come into my office." Lucina says awkwardly. Lucina opens the door and leads you inside. However, the office looked rather plain, with just a desk and few pictures hanging on the walls. It was pretty spartan, otherwise."I haven't had a lot of time to really settle in yet." Lucina sighs as she sits down on her chair and leans back.

>>3394476>Tell her you got a present for her.
>>3394487They have biofuel processors if I remember correctly.
>>3394476"Ah, well, I'm sure you'll break it in just fine." You grin. "Anyways, I brought a little present from Rockfort Island." "You did?" Lucina pauses."What, you thought I wouldn't get you a souvenir?" You laugh. "That would be pretty heartless of me."You then take the wrapped package containing the dinosaur onesie from your bag and present it to Lucina. "Here you go.""Thanks..." Lucina blinks, genuinely grateful. "Is... is it okay if I open it now?">Sure thing.>You should wait until you're home.>Other
>>3394491They do indeed process food and drink like us to make themselves just that bit more human. Also helps for those who feel bad for not feeding their dolls.
>>3394507>>You should wait until you're home.
>>3394507>>Sure thing.Lucina won't murder us, right? She has to set an example for the rest of the force.
>>3394507>You should wait until you're home.
>>3394507>You should wait until you're home
>>3394507"Sure thing." You grin. "Open it up!">Roll 1d20
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>3394542
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>3394542A story for the kids.
>>3394542Lucina eagerly unwraps the package, only to be presented with the blue triceratops onesie that you had gotten her.She just pauses as she stares at it before calmly folding it back up."I'll tell you what, Lewis." Lucina says with a sickening sweet smile. "I'll give you a five minute head start to get your ass out of this building before I put an APB on to every RCPD officer in the city.">Surely she's joking... right?>Better book it!>Other
>>3394562>Sigh, shake your head, and then haul ass like the devil himself was behind you.
>>3394562>Y...you don't like it?>Be absolutely crushed.
>>3394562>Surely she's joking... right?
>you’ll thank me later when you get to appreciate the SOFTNESS
>>3394562>Surely she's joking... right?What next, spending the night at Lucy's in handcuffs?
>>3394562Say that we are vewy sowwy, we thought she would appweciate such a fine gwift.

Rolled 4, 7, 7 = 18 (3d20)>>3394562"Come on, you don't like it?" You ask, giving a hurt expression. She couldn't possibly be serious about siccing the entire RCPD on you over this! Well, hopefully.>Roll 1d20
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>3394589Well, if she really does mean it, how about we surprise her with our enhanced strength mod to princess carry her out?
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>3394589

Rolled 12 (1d20)>>3394589ZOINKS!>>3394591>>3394592LIKE DOUBLE ZOINKS SCOOB!
>>3394591I think that would qualify as kindnapping the chief of police.
>>3394592Does that mean we unlock something special like magic, or is Lewis secretly emitting pheromones?
>>3394601We discovered her fetish.
>>3394605Don't tell me that it really is handcuff play and a bit of bondage.
>>3394601It means lewis is hurt and she feels bad
>>3394612I feel that she's secretly way lewder than she lets on.I'd imagine that when she discovers and accepts Lewis' true nature she'll incorporate it into kinky roleplay with Lewis being the alien hybrid seeking to spread his genes.
>>3394589"Okay, okay, I guess it's kinda cute." Lucina mumbles. "It's still kinda embarrassing.""Hey, don't sweat it, I was just messing with you." You assure her. "You just seem so tense and stressed all the time now. Well, moreso than usual.""Yes, well..." Lucina pauses and then takes a deep sigh. "You know what, fuck it. Let's go somewhere, Lewis.""Where?" You blink in surprise."Anywhere." She replies. "I just... want to get away, even if just for a little while."Goddamn, this really came out of nowhere. >Your place.>Lucina's place.>Carol's mansion.>The Ranch>The Arklay Mountains.>Other
>>3394619>>The RanchSomewhere far away from the shit storm that is Racoon.
>>3394619>>The RanchSomewhere that isn't busy or anything. Where you can get back to nature or simple stuff. But isn't TOO far.
>>3394619>>The Arklay Mountains.
>>3394619>The RanchI bet Springfield can fix her up a nice exotic coffee.
>>3394619>The Arklay Mountains.
>>3394619"We could always go the Ranch." You say. "It's out of the way, isolated... and Mom's not home."Lucina raises an eyebrow. "Don't worry she's doing totally legal stuff with Carol. Honest." You assure her. "That wasn't what I was thinking about." Lucina snorts with laughter. "I almost thought for a moment that- ah, nevermind. It's a good idea.""So, we're just gonna go? Just like that?""Just like that." Lucina nods. "Don't worry, I'll smooth things out with your Boss.""You mean bribe her." You point out."I'm not without resources." Lucina grins. "What about ST-AR?" You ask."Hm, well, I'd feel bad leaving her all alone..." Lucina pauses.>I guess ST-AR can tag along.>I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own.>Other
>>3394649>>I guess ST-AR can tag along.
>>3394649>I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own.
>>3394649>>I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own.She'd probably find a way to handle daily matters.
>>3394649>>I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own.
>>3394649>I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own.We'll make it up to her later, but this needs to be an 'us' thing.
>>3394649>>I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own.The real question is what the two of them should do when they get there.I'm thinking about some nice walk down memory lane.
>>3394649"I'm sure ST-AR will be fine on her own." You assure her. "She's a T-Doll, after all. They're built tough.""Oh, I'm not worried about Star herself. I'm just worried about how she'll run the place." Lucina sighs. "Even after all this time, I just can't seem to get a read on her. I just get the distinct feeling she's hiding something from me. Is that a crazy thing to feel?">I'm pretty sure she IS hiding things. >Now that's just your work stress talking. >Other
>>3394663>>I'm pretty sure she IS hiding things.
>>3394663>Now that's just your work stress talking."Next you'll say I'm distracting you so she can do some wetwork. That's silly."
>>3394663>>I'm pretty sure she IS hiding things.You know, aside from the data analysis they probably give their manufacturers every so often.
>>3394663>>I'm pretty sure she IS hiding things.All these T-Dolls are.
>>3394663"I'm pretty sure she IS hiding things." You grunt. "Feels like all the prototype T-Dolls do.""Made them too damn start, apparently." Lucina shakes her head. "Still, Star has turned out be dependable so far, even if her attitude is rather dour.""So... are we leaving now?" You ask."Is there any better time?" Lucina raises an eyebrow. "I guess not." You shrug. "Are you going to tell your mom?" Lucina glances at you, as if to gauge your reaction.>You know I have to.>I don't think she needs to know.>Other
>>3394678>>I don't think she needs to know.But if she starts to rummage through any of Alice's old stuff, that's when we're calling it.
>>3394678>>I don't think she needs to know.She spooks us all the time might be fun the other way around.
>>3394678>>I don't think she needs to know.
>>3394678>I don't think she needs to know.No lewds!
>>3394678>I don't think she needs to know.
>>3394678"Nah, I don't think she needs to know." You shake your head. "She's supposed to be on vacation relaxing, so I don't see any reason to put more worries on her.""That's a good point." Lucina smiles and holds out her hand. "Now then, shall we?""Let's go." You nod as you take her hand.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread will be on Friday!>And don't forget I'll be running a special April Fools thread on Sunday, so don't miss it!

>>3394678>ST-AR leading the departmentI wonder, are T-Dolls legally persons? If not, ST-AR can't lead anything any more than a toaster could, regardless of her intelligence. At least not officially.
