It was supposed to be your moment of triumph, where Bites The Dust should have activated and sent you back into your quiet life. But Jotaro, that accursed marine biologist had his stand do something to you. You weren't sure what it did exactly, but you knew that it had destroyed you utterly with its immense speed, sending you into the afterlife.The afterlife operated with its own set of rules that inevitably led you to your second demise, or would have had Luck not been on your side. For when you were cast out into the grasping hands of the hellish alleyway by your first Victim's dog, something within your soul had managed to stay together. Even as your body was shattered, pulled into pieces by those disgusting, manly hands, your soul had managed to stay put. You and your stands remains were dragged into hell whilst your most vital parts had managed to remain. The next thing you saw was a bright light which engulfed all of your senses, whilst a biting chill nipped at your everything. You cried for the first time in a long while, but had settled down later on. There was no doubt about it. You had been reincarnated, and that was all that mattered. Luck was certainly on your side, for you grew up in a relatively unremarkable household in the Twentieth Ward of Tokyo, which was considered to be the 'quietest' and safest ward in all of Tokyo, which kept your life relatively quiet as you preferred. But most importantly of all, you still had Killer Queen, your Stand which made your quiet life possible. It was with this stand that you had removed any elements that would have given you trouble in this life, such as your Aunt and your cousin, who had mysteriously disappeared several years ago. You know what you did to them, but you thought nothing of it. Eventually your new mother died when you had just departed for college, which was unfortunate to say the least. You were Yoshikage Kira, Age 33, an unremarkable businessman with a quiet life but now you are Ken Kaneki, age 19, a literature major at Kamii University. You have not had a girlfriend since your new life began. You are inside of your small, one room apartment in Tokyo which is very close to your university of choosing. You have classes later in the evening, but for now you have nothing to do.What shall you do?>Check the TV for any news>Go to your local bookstore and see if they Sen Takatsuki's new novel>(Write-In)
>>3990614>Go to your local bookstore and see if they Sen Takatsuki's new novel
>>3990614>Check the TV for any newsOne day we'll continue SQR, but I guess that day isn't today. . . Let's see what's new about this world.
>>3990617>>3990619A visit to the local bookstore
>>3990669You exited from your apartment, making sure to lock your door tightly as you began to walk to the local bookstore, said bookstore only being an approximately 15 minute walk. You were first introduced to the works of Sen Takatsuki by your only acquaintance of any note, Hideyoshi Nagachika. The only reason why you had continued your friendship with the man, your polar opposite in almost every way was because of he his presence throughout most of your early childhood and childhood, which endeared him to you. There was also his personality, which drew quite a bit of attention to him while leaving none of it on you, which you enjoyed, albeit his attempts at getting introducing you to more people annoyed you.Your current train of thought shifted as you entered the book store, the smell of new books invading your nostrils. Then, you walked past the varying aisles of books until you reached the one that you had sought out. Contemporary Horror. Sen Takatsuki's works were all horror novels of the sort and were dangerously novel for your tastes. Still, a novelty was novelty, and your pursuit of said novelty ended up trapping you into the ocean of her works. She was most definitely a competent author, that much you could tell through your previous experience as a Literature Major before, but the novelty of it all was that the murder and violence within said books were all too real.It was almost as if she had seen or been through the circumstances which contributed to the uneasiness that many people felt when reading her novels, not that you cared. As it turned out, the book store did not have her new book in stock, for it had been sold out an hour before you arrived.Inconvenient, but your quiet walk throughout the bookstore had pleased you irregardless. A visit to the bookstore every now and then had become a part of your weekly ritual, one that you adhered to religiously. Now that you have visited the Bookstore, what shall you do?>Go back home and take care of your hands>Go to a local Cafe and wait for a girl who could be your first Girlfriend in this life>(Write-In)
>>3990676Visit the city's local kink club. You should be able to find it via the internet. Most kink clubs have a facebook group that lists what time the groups meetup and how often.The session should cost about 10-20 bucks, or it might be free depending on what event they have going. But most of them allow you to pay a bulk monthly fee of about 150.Once we're there we need to find ourself a domme. Enduring her abuses will allow us to heighten our defenses and resistances to damages. As well as learn to take pleasure in pain.. And maybe if this domme is single we can date her, and she can become our girlfriend.
>>3990676>Go back home and take care of your hands
>>3990679>>3990682Take care of your hands
>>3990691Satisfying your weekly ritual, you returned home to continue part of your daily ritual. Every day, you would measure out your nails and see if they needed to be cut. A general manicure also followed, as you would not suffer having ugly hands. You began by measuring your finger nails, which were one centimeter above the norm. With your nail clippers, you quickly cut them down to size, collecting your clippings onto a piece of paper towel that you had set aside for that purpose. It seemed that this month would be a very lucky month for you to kill, and that was the one break that you were waiting for. Chuckling at this stroke of luck, you quickly set them into a small mason jar, which you sealed. This mason jar joined a couple others among the shelves of your apartment, as this mason jar collected this month's clippings. You first soaked your hands in warm water, softening the small calluses that had built up before you gently ground them back down, leaving your palms supple. Then with a squirt of lotion, you had meticulously rubbed the lotion into the skin of your hands. Finally, you sprayed a bit of perfume that you had bought onto your hands, the smell and sight giving you a boner.You cursed, as the spray of perfume was a new thing that you had added onto your daily ritual, as your new body's hands were remarkably effeminate. They did well to serve as your 'girlfriends' for a bit, before you stopped as you realized how strange those actions would make you seem.Thus with your hands taken care of, what shall you do?>Scope out for your newest kill and Girlfriend at the local cafe, Anteiku>Study some more for your upcoming literature class this afternoon>Settle down with one of Sen Takatsuki's works that you had bought earlier this week, as you had intended to finish it yesterday>(Write-In)
>>3990694The last post of the day for now. I will return tomorrow at around 4 PM Pacific time as always.
>>3990694>Scope out for your newest kill and Girlfriend at the local cafe, AnteikuIf you're attracted to your new body's hands, is it masturbatory or homosexual?

>>3990694>Scope out for your newest kill and Girlfriend at the local cafe, AnteikuSince this quest is about Kira I think it's within reasonable bounds to talk about what he did in the main SQR timeline, quirk science. Also, Congratulations STANDO! Scientific quirk harvesting is now canon! How does it feel for a concept you introduced to suddenly appear in the main series without warning a few weeks later?

>>3990700>>3990721>>3990862>>3990903Scope out newest kill at local cafe
>>3991382Your urge to kill had been rising throughout the multiple years that you had suppressed it, with only a small period of momentary release after you had disappeared your Aunt and Cousin. However, this action made it rise even further than it had before, and you knew that you had to somehow satisfy it. If you didn't that would mean that the veil of normalcy that you had cultivated around your person would inevitably break. Luckily for you, there was a cafe that was close to Kamii University, and by extension close to your own home.You had at first thought to go there immediately and scope out for any girl whose hands caught your interest, but your classes had just began shortly after you had taken care of your hands. You went to your classes, reading and studying various excerpts from modern Japanese literature, mostly the classics like Osamu Dazai's works or Yukio Mishima's works. Then after class ended, you took time to hang out with Hide, who brought along an acquaintance of his from the medical department. You three went out and ate taiyaki, talking along the way. After this rendezvous, you had finally been able to go to your favorite Cafe during its later hours, and at that Cafe you scanned for a woman with pretty hands. Soon enough, you found one, her well manicured hands complementing her strangely purple hair. Her glasses added to her cuteness, although you didn't give it much thought, for you would only be after her hands. What shall you do?>Return home and come back the next day, to see if she was a regular>Send several glances her way, to further glean what you could from her>Get a coffee and get back home to study>(Write-In)
>>3991424>Get a coffee and get back home to studyPremium hand strat, put the hand in a jar of honey when not in use. Honey was the premium embalming agent for the Egyptians. Thanks to it's anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties the hand will stay in good condition for months.
>>3991424>Return home and come back the next day, to see if she was a regular>>3991443The whole point of our girlfriends was to take them out and spend time with them, not stuff them into a jar for who knows how long.
>>3991424>Stalk her in secret tonight. Killer Queen's special abilities make you an unstoppable force for normal people, so it would be extremely easy to just corner her wherever she goes - even her home - and take her life.
>>3991457This is what Kira would do, let’s do it. HOWEVER:>watch out for dogs, cameras and other security systems>ensure we aren’t seen by anyone, even with Killer Queen too many deaths would attract the attention of the police which makes hand-collecting significantly harder and risk of detection higher>don’t look conspicuous when following, blend into the background and find excuses to be where we need to be
>>3991424>Return home and come back the next day, to see if she was a regular>>3991454If we take the hand out of the jar it will still be covered into a protective layer of honey, after a few days the new fluid will really sink in making it more resistant to decay. If we put the hand in the jar while we are carrying it in the bag or while we are sleeping we'll still get all the benefits and get to keep dating it. Besides, imagine how yummy the fingers will be.
>>3991454>>3991492Return home and come back the next day
>>3991526Uh, Stando, it’s a tie.>>3991457>>3991480Against>>3991454>>3991492
>>3991547Did you not add those extra actions to your vote? In spite of supporting it, you added extra actions, thus making it its own vote. That is how I count it now. You could have omitted those actions and assumed that those would occur.
>>3991553Ah, fair enough
>>3991526You ordered a small slice of cake in order to make sure that you didn't stand out before you left. Your walk home was uneventful, save for a closed down building with yellow police tape obscuring its entrance. There were still policemen about, investigating several clues before one of the police officers called somebody on their radio, probably the CCG given the nature of the attack. Arriving home, you took a warm shower, making sure that your body was clean before you began your nightly twenty minutes of stretches. Warming up milk during the last five minutes, you finished your stretches right as your milk was warm. You drank it and then fell asleep like a baby. The next day, you made breakfast just the way you liked it, while listening to the morning radio. Apparently the CCG attributed the attack on the building to the Binge Eater Ghoul, which was a strange name for an equally as strange ghoul. Then it changed to the music you so liked as you clipped your nails again.With your morning routine finished, you left for your classes and then left for Anteiku after you were done with them, with your friend Hide towing along. He asked who you were after in a teasing manner, to which you said nothing, silently suffering his annoying yet endearing jokes until the two of you entered the Cafe. Then, Hide's attention immediately locked onto that one waitress who worked at Anteiku. You were thankful for her sacrifice. Taking a seat at a far table, you saw that your quarry was still there.She appeared to be reading a book with her graceful fingers flipping the pages in a manner that you could only describe as heavenly. What shall you do?>Tail her after the cafe and murder her with Killer Queen>Wait for now, as getting to know her would make her hand all the sweeter>(Write-In)
>>3991573>Wait for now, as getting to know her would make her hand all the sweeter
>>3991573>Tail her after the cafe and murder her with Killer QueenMost murders occur between people who know each other. By getting close to someone we intend to kill, it puts us on the radar for investigators. We cannot allow this to happen, even if it means denying a sweeter reward.Remember, Yoshikage Kira is content with mediocrity in the name of safety.
>>3991600I think the implication is that we’re stalking her, not actually speaking to her. Am I right or wrong in that assumption, Stando?
>>3991573>Wait for now, as getting to know her would make her hand all the sweeterTokyo Ghoul,that is certainly a fun choice, alright gang let's get our autism into high gear and analyze this lore. What do you think stands have to do with RC cells?
>>3991573>Wait for now, as getting to know her would make her hand all the sweeter>>3991609My preliminary assessment of the lore gave me a surge of clairvoyant autism. Everything lined up, it's all connected. I understand everything now. This is the timeline where Kars won. After only narrowly avoiding defeat by Joseph, Kars became obsessed with understating how Joseph managed to get so close to sending him into space(which was actually blind luck on the JoJo's part) the results of his experiments with humanity are the Ghouls, the unstable inbred offspring born from the unions of his half-human half-pillar men offspring
>>3991639>>3991616>>3991609>>3991582Get to know her(Eventually)
>>3991654The sight of her hands flipping through that book almost drove you mad, but you kept down your urge to kill for the moment. There would be no point in her being your girlfriend if you didn't know anything about her in the first place. She'd just be a dead thing if you were to take her now, and you'd like your first relationship in this body to at least mean something. So with these thoughts in mind, you threw several more glances at the mysterious girl's hands every once in a while whilst you chatted with Hide about college and other generally normal things.The two of you soon left the Cafe and went to a local restaurant to get something to eat for dinner. After that, the two of you went down separate ways, with you returning to your apartment. You spent some time studying some more before you went to bed again, performing your nightly ritual of twenty minutes of stretching followed by a glass of warm milk. You fell asleep like a baby. The next morning was unremarkable, just the way you liked it. With a fresh glass of orange juice, along with some eggs and toast, you felt rejuvenated to say the least.You do not have any classes today, which frees up your schedule. What shall you do?>Invite Hide to go with you for some coffee at Anteiku>Go to the bookstore and see if they've finally restocked >Take a walk around Tokyo >Try and find a job since you haven't got one yet
>>3991689>Go to the bookstore and see if they've finally restockedShould get a look at what books she reads in order to create a common point of interest. After we get our book of course.
>>3991689>Go to the bookstore and see if they've finally restocked
>>3991689>Go to the bookstore and see if they've finally restockedDon't mind the name. My ID changes and I'd rather not be accused of same fagging.So boys, assuming we become a ghoul as the main character of Tokyo Ghoul did- what's the plan of action? We still need hands and I doubt we'll be eating hands.
Apologies. Currently my computer is unavailable. I will extend the vote for two more hours.
>>3991696>>3991697>>3991767>>3991786Go to the bookstore and see if they’ve finally restocked
>>3991957You left your apartment, locking the door behind you and walked to the local bookstore. This walk in particular was uneventful, just the way you liked it, and lead to you getting to the bookstore a whole five minutes earlier than usual. This minor setback troubled you for only a moment, before you banished the thought, as you were normal enough already. You entered the bookstore and walked down the aisles as you had done two days before, albeit something did catch your eye. That something was that purple haired woman who seemed to frequent the same cafe you did, whose hands were lush and beyond supple from what you could see. The perfect woman for almost everyone, it seemed. But your gaze went by unnoticed, and you soon came across the Horror section. They had restocked and now had several copies of Sen Takatsuki's latest work, her seventh novel, The Black Goat's Egg. Reading the synopsis, you found it to be a bit too familiar to your liking, but you remembered that so long you used Killer Queen, there was absolutely no way for anything to trouble your quiet life. You bought the book and stopped at the entrance of the book store, still thinking about that girl.What shall you do?>Ignore her for now and return home to read your book in peace>Walk over and ask her what she's reading>(Write-In)
>>3992006Last post of the day, as it is getting very late. Vote extended until I return.
>>3992006>Walk over and ask her what she's reading
>>3992006>(Write-In)>Walk over, pretending to be looking for something new, and 'accidentally' bump into her. When she picks up her book, look at the cover and ask about it.
>>3992006>Ignore her for now and return home to read your book in peace
>>3992006>>Walk over and ask her what she's reading
>>3992006>Walk over and ask her what she's reading>>3991786Just eat the entire body except the hands.
>>3992049>>3992333>>3992456>>3992507Walk over and ask her what she’s reading(Sorry for the late update. Holiday festivities got in the way and I’m not feeling so good.)
>>3993340It's cool, don't over-stain yourself.
>>3993340Thinking for a moment, you backed away from the exit, returning to the aisles which you walked down, looking as casual and normal as possible. Given who you were, nobody noticed you, just the way you liked it. There were people bumped into you, a quick apology from both parties restoring the veil of normality that you had carefully cultivated around yourself. Eventually, your meandering through the aisles brought you close enough to the girl whose hands you sought. Her purple hair and kind eyes complimented her hands, making them seem all the sweeter. With your gaze locked onto her hands, your mind in an entirely separate realm than your body, you ended up crashing into the girl, tumbling over to the ground as she merely stumbled.That in of itself was odd, considering how in spite of how close the two of you were in height, you still held the advantage over her considerably when it came to weight, musculature and all. She should have fallen to the ground with you, and yet there she was standing. You blinked and everything cleared up, the mystery girl- no woman's face peering above you in concern. "Hey. Are you alright?" She asked, her lidless red glasses lowered beneath her eyes. She was certainly alluring to men, albeit for different reasons than your own. Her very existence was mightily suspicious, which added to what had lured you to her in the first place. Her hands. For some reason, it all came down to her hands.What do you do?>Get up, brush yourself off and say that you are fine>Get up, brush yourself off and ignore her, leaving the store>Get up, brush yourself off and introduce yourself to her>(Write-In)_Sorry for the tremendous amount of time it took to write this. Holy shit this new keyboard is fucking me over more than I'd thought it would._
>>3993484>Get up, brush yourself off and say that you are fine
>>3993484>Get up, brush yourself off and introduce yourself to her
Apologies for such a late and short session, but I will leave the vote open until 4 PM tomorrow at pacific time. Hopefully, I will be able to update far more then.
>Get up, brush yourself off and introduce yourself to her
>>3993505>>3993556>>3993561>>3993850>>3994214>>3994436Get up, brush yourself off and introduce yourself to her
>>3994622You got up and brushed yourself off, eyes locked onto the gently smiling purple haired girl. It was this moment which cemented your commitment to your first kill, her kindly smile, red glasses and purple hair. But most of all, it was the underlying malice and amusement beneath her facade which drew you to her, along with her hands. She was perhaps the same as you, a killer attracting its prey before attacking at the very last moment, but until then, you'd dance with her and laugh before removing almost all that made her 'her' and committing it to memory. You then noticed that your bag dropped, revealing your newly purchased book, which she seemed to be reading as well."Ah.. I'm fine. And thank you." You replied as she knelt and picked up your book, open to the second chapter which was coincidentally where the Son discovered his Mother's depravity for the first time. A truly interesting read, even if you were into it for the description of the mother's hands. She gave the book back, winking as she did. "Interesting. I was just reading that too..." She said. You were of course used to this, as in your previous life you had a multitude of women who flirted with you. Some you took, while you left the others to their fantasies and delusions by simply making up excuses. Not that the excuses were invalid, as you actually did have to deliver those files to someone else in your department that one time. "Do you like him? Takatsuki?" She asked, removing you from that small bubble of nostalgia that you had found yourself in earlier. "Sen Takatsuki? Yes. His works are something to behold." You replied coolly. "I absolutely adore mystery." "Me too!" She giggled and before you knew it, you had found yourself in a conversation with the woman about Sen Takatsuki's works. You were sure that said author was a girl, but knowing women, you kept it quiet as you did not wish to drive her off with your 'OCD' as your Father called it at times. You left the bookstore with a date in mind and the growing anticipation of a new girlfriend. You had some wistful thoughts about your Father, Yoshihiro before you stopped. His existence was then, and while you did inevitably come to regret obliterating his soul on accident, that was in an entirely separate world than the one you were in now.What shall you spend the remainder of the day on?>Go have a Coffee with your friend, Hide and talk about life>Go back home and read the rest of the novel that you had just bought>(Write-In)
>>3994690>Go back home and read the rest of the novel that you had just bought
>>3994725>>3994737Return home and read the novel
>>3994773You spent the remainder of the day at home, appreciating your new book thoroughly. The violent and brutal descriptions of the Mother's depravity reminded you of your own murders before you had found Killer Queen, whose remains shocked even yourself when the murderlust abated. The mystery and growing tension in the first two chapters were your favorite, for they were surprisingly accurate in their depictions of such matters. You knew that from your first hand experience, when you had masqueraded as Kosaku Kawajiri during the last days of your life. Time went by quickly and before you knew it, the clock neared the time which you would regularly sleep.The Son's descent into degeneracy was also amusing, as Takatsuki handled his character development masterfully, if anything. You spent the next twenty five minutes taking a shower and then stretching before warming up a glass of milk which you drank. You then fell asleep rather quickly, half finished with your book. You awoke the next day and prepared your breakfast, listening to the radio as always. Nothing eventful came up, and then you left for Kamii University.During the breaks between your classes, who did you talk to?>Hide, your oldest friend so far>Nishio, your senior and a medical student at that>(Write-In)
>>3994839>Hide, your oldest friend so far
>>3994866>>3994904>>3994914Speak with Hide
>>3994950Hide was one of your first friends in Elementary School, a boisterous and outgoing young boy who ended up befriending you, much to your dismay at the time. You thought that your dreams of a quiet life were over, and that you'd be swarmed by all of his friends as in the mind of a child, a friend of a friend is automatically their friend. But to your relief, Hide in spite of his hyperactivity and complete lack of tact at times turned out to be quite astute, which he hid behind his disarmingly friendly personality. Of course, said personality was never even a fabrication unlike yours, which meant that he was obvious to read. At least you believed so.In spite of your later thoughts of abandoning him and cutting ties, he just somehow managed to keep popping up into your life, to the point at which it endeared him to you. Your quiet life was also left undisturbed as well, which was a bonus. Thus as you have known Hide for most of his life and he with yours, you decided to get lunch with him at a simple udon shop. As you ate, Hide and you talked about regular things, such as life and the weather until he brought up the small grin you had on your face."So.. What's got you so happy Kaneki-kun?" He began, his voice taking on a teasing note. "N-Nothing Hide. Seriously." You attempted to brush him off, but his sheer Hide-ness caused you to stutter. Capitalizing on your weakness, Hide faked a loud gasp which drew the attention of some patrons, before he leaned in conspiratorially and whispered."Has my Kaneki finally got himself a girlfriend?" Hide asked, which in turn caused you to choke on your noodles. He burst out into laughter, before he helped you cough out the lengths of noodle that had gone the wrong way down your throat. "N-No. Well yes but-" You started, attempting to hide your embarrassment. But it was to no avail, for Hide whooped and hugged you closely to his chest in a manner that completely suffocated you in his hoodie."That's my boy!" He cried out loudly, like some sort of proud father. "Please stop being so noticeable, Hide." You begged, your voice muffled beneath his hoodie. "Sorry Kan-Kan-" "Never call me that." "But I'm your only friend and by extension your bestest friend. Which means that we need to CELEBRATE." He said loudly, as you could feel your Killer Queen further recede into your body. Your traitorous stand had decided to hide within you rather than wade through the storm that was Hide being Hide."God damnit Hide."You were soon back home with a date to boot. You two were supposed to meet by the Bookstore and then go to a restaurant, an Italian one if you were correct.What shall you do in preparation for your date?>Change out your clothing into your Dad's suit, which perfectly fits you for some odd reason>Part your hair in front of your eyes in an attempt to mimic your previous hairstyle>Take care of your hands again>(Write-In)

Apologies for cutting the session short with such a late notice, felt horrible for some reason. Vote open until tomorrow.
>>3990614Hey STANDO what site did you use for the the stat chart?
>new stando questYes!>ken KanekiNo!Ah well, I'll give it a shot. Literally can't be worse than canon.
>>3991639If Kars won, why isn't he God-King of the universe?
>>3995909My guess is that he's focused on his experiments right now and wants to understand what humans have that got Joseph so close to killing him. Alternatively this all could be the work of Nazi scientists who continued experimenting with vampires underground after the war. We might run into Ghoul Cyborg Stronheim while he's trying to steal the Yata no Kagmi so they can use it in a ritual to achive heaven. Also,bets on if Giornio is a Ghoul or not.
>>3996200>Also,bets on if Giornio is a Ghoul or not.Half-Ghoul, obvi.
Hey Stando. Good on you for taking the night off to get back on your feet. Don't worry about this thread to much, you have to do what you have to do in order to stay healthy,we'll be looking forward to when you get you natural rhythm back in order. For fucks sake don't mangle you sleep schedule for QMing, do not hesitate to cut things off early for health reasons or even to be safe and make sure you are going to end up alright the next day, even if it's during a really important story event. Breaks in the flow don't really do anything to hamper my enjoyment of the quest and if anything the anticipation and the autistic hypotheses actually build hype. Have a great night and don't get in that downward spiral my dude.
Sorry for not being able to update. Just moved back home and it took a while.I should hopefully be able to update by 4 PM Pacific later today.
>>3996852I moved recently too, so I understand how difficult it can be. Make sure to rest up and stay hydrated, and always lift with your legs!
>>3995011>>3995015>>3995027>>3995085Dubs/All of the above
>>3997461>>3997461Given that this was your first date in this strange new world, you wanted to commemorate it in the only way you could. By looking like yourself before you became your new self. As such, you spent part of your morning before college looking through your closet, which contained plenty of hand-me-downs to find your Father's suit when he was alive. You never truly got to know your Father in this life, as he had died early on before you were able to properly get used to this world. But his tastes in suits befit him, as you had heard that he was an avid reader of all sorts of books. His suit was predominantly grey and white, his jacket and slacks grey whilst his dress shirt was white. He wore a red patterned tie that was seemingly designed to stick out, clashing terribly with the rest of the suit. You put up with it of course, but that would change as soon as you were able to find a job like your former self.Then you attempted to part your hair in an attempt to look like your former self, but it ended up clashing horribly with your naturally round face and other features that would be considered 'cute' at best. So instead you endeavored to take care of your hands once more, putting extra attention into the clippings that were left after the event. They were lucky. Now satisfied, you left for class and then came back after it ended, at approximately 6 PM which would give you an hour to prepare for your date.

>>3997583As this was your first date in this world, you wanted it to go as smoothly as possible. As such, you left your apartment and arrived at the restaurant an hour early. This restaurant was a relatively casual place, more like a Cafe and it showed as it had no reservation list or anything of the sort. The bookstore it was neighbor to was the very same where you first stumbled into the girl. The streets were bustling as usual for any street in Tokyo, and nothing seemed to be awry. Time passed relatively quickly, and before you knew it, you were escorting your date into the Cafe. She ordered a plate of Spaghetti Neapolitan, while you simply ordered a sandwich.The date went by swimmingly, as the two of you discussed literature and other such matters in between Rize's frequent visits to the restroom. You figured that she either had bulimia or that her intestines were somehow processing food at a much quicker rate than it should have been. Neither option would make any sense, as she seemed to be quite healthy, so you dismissed the thought. Still, you were thankful that her frequent trips to the restroom attracted no attention. You absolutely despised attention, for it was what ruined your life before and will likely ruin your life now. After the two of you finished your meal and then continued talking for a while, the date came to an end. Rize mentioned how there was an uptick in Ghoul Attacks in the 20th Ward and those attacks usually occurred at night.How do you handle this situation?>Escort her home, but murder her when you have the opportunity>Escort her home peacefully>Let her be for now, as you still need to interact more with her >(Write-In)

>>3998220In the end, you decided to escort her home, not because you wished her well. In fact, you were meticulously planning her murder using your stand Killer Queen, but you figured that killing your quarry on your first date would just be incredibly rude. You also did not want any sort of Ghoul to claim her, for you were certain that they would eat her entire body, which would in turn leave nothing of her to keep. As the two of you continued walking down the street, you found out that you shared the same blood type as Rize. At least, your new body did. You knew for certain that your blood type was A, which fit your personality a lot better than AB. You also discovered that your body was the same age as Rize, which could not have been a coincidence. You were close in age to Reimi as well, only being two years her senior when you tore her back to shreds and spread her internals all over her bed through her back, but you eventually learned the values of not making a mess. You found that Rize was surprisingly pleasant when it came to small talk, which was a revelation to you. For all of your life and your previous one, you had found women to be incredibly annoying, the only thing of worth their hands. But to find a woman who was good at small talk, nonetheless one you actually took to a date while alive was simply thrilling.You could feel your urge to murder rising by the second, peaking the very moment the two of you walked by a lone building. You could take her now and be done with it, and everybody would simply wonder where she'd vanish off to. You noticed that you were suddenly walking by yourself, which prompted you to turn and look at your date, who was standing. "But it's mysterious, isn't it." She said, completely diverting the your conversation away from the topic of one of Hide's many mishaps. "That what started you and me walking together like this was a Takatsuki Novel." You did find that to be mysterious, but you were never one to question fate. "It must have been fate." You responded curtly, before she suddenly buried her face into your chest. "Kaneki-san." She began, looking up from your chest. "The truth is, I noticed. I noticed that you were watching me, Kaneki-san." This was not good. She had known after all. "I too.. Was watching you!" She then suddenly bit down into your shoulder, eyes blackening, reddened veins worming across her red eyes. Needless to say, you were not amused.What do you do?>Push her away and begin to calmly explain the dire situation that she was now in>Say an ever familiar phrase.

>>3998534Many different feelings coursed through your mind at the very moment your date revealed her true nature. None of them were fear nor were they any shade of it. In fact, you felt more disappointed than you did betrayal. The revelation that she was a Ghoul did not strike you as hard as it could have, mostly due to your own nature as a obligate killer of people. You were of course angry that she even dared to bite into your body. But most of all, you were disappointed in Fate. Why had it given you such a difficult girlfriend? Not to mention that Ghouls were obligate cannibals, meaning that you'd have to take human flesh and feed it to her, not that you had any objections to her diet. Rather, your objections lied within the very fact that you might need to even kill outside of your lucky months in order to feed this troublesome girl. You didn't even know that much about Ghouls.You stepped back from her, your face completely still as your hair fell down, casting a shadow over your eyes. "Aaaahhhhhh... Delicious.." You heard her moan as she licked up your blood and put something that belonged to you, was you into her body. That moan of satisfaction seemed to be entirely too sexual, even for her type. Were you really that good tasting? She stood there for a while, gently lapping what blood had spilled onto her, as more of your blood continued to flow down in rivulets down your suit. She had completely ruined it. You would have to reprimand your girlfriend a bit earlier than usual. (1/3)
>>3998566After her rapture had passed, the Ghoul finally opened her eyes, only to blink in confusion. Rize was a ghoul, and one with a massive appetite at that. She did not care about the other ghouls, which in turn with her personality had her ravenously consume people to her hearts content. Those feasts were satisfying to her, but the most satisfying meals were those who had gone on dates with her. The look in their eyes as she'd reveal her true nature and eat them was one that made them all the more exquisite. But this one, this Kaneki Ken was an anomaly. He was calm and soft-spoken, kind in every way that mattered in spite of his hard exterior. She knew that he was after her, what with him giving the very same glances that she'd give a good looking meal, and found that it was a shame that he wasn't a ghoul. When she had bumped into him in that bookstore, which led to them dating, she found him to be interesting in a way none of her previous meals were. He was extremely literate, intelligent and most of all, he was exactly like her.She could see the growing anticipation of the kill within his eyes in every minute of their date, in every second of their conversation. He was a predator like her, but he was not a ghoul. She always found that her dates would always lead to an interesting confrontation at the very end, but none were so interesting as Kaneki, who instead of betrayal showed disappointment in his eyes. Who instead of fear, was only mildly annoyed. This both confused Rize and affirmed that it was a terrible shame indeed that he was not born a ghoul like her. They would have been the perfect couple. But his succulent flesh made that thought all the more terrible, as he for some reason was the perfect meal in every way. Not too fat, not too lean, but just with the right amount of marbling. His blood was sweet, complimenting the rest of him. Her thoughts were interrupted when Kaneki began to speak.(2/3)
>>3998575"Oh my.. Look at what you've done." He said quietly, addressing her with the tone of a disappointed parent. At that moment, all of her hairs stood up on their ends, a chill flowing down her spine. For some reason, her instincts told her that this was a fight she could not win, the meal that she could not partake in, but she ignored those instincts in favor at standing her ground, her Kagune immediately emerging from her back, each end pointing menacingly at the prey-turned-predator. "This suit belonged to my father, you know that? It is well colored, but the tie doesn't go with it. That was why I decided to forgo wearing it. But you." He said with an even stronger taste of disappointment. "You just had to be naughty. Repairing this suit's going to be a hassle, and an interruption in my life." There seemed to be a growing darkness which quickly overshadowed his form, almost as if it were rising from his body. "On top of ruining my suit, you just [i]had[/i] to be a ghoul." He said, sarcasm and vehemence dripping from his voice. "Do you know how troublesome your diet is? Getting human flesh for you would be a nightmare, and I wouldn't want to eat any at all. But I guess your hands are worth the trouble. Maybe. Just maybe." He finished, the shadows seemingly coalescing into a hunched figure that stood by him, your eyes widening. In that moment, you saw Death with its leering skull appear for but a moment, before it all passed. He was by himself, and the strange figure which stood by him was gone. "Killer Queen." Rize heard her meal intone, before he was suddenly right in front of her, her superior vision catching his sudden sprint. All of her fears vanished in that moment, for her meal had just ran into her and into his death. Her kagune reeled in for the kill, only to suddenly stop. Rize found her self stopping, blood gushing from her mouth. "GHA-Ghk." She spat out what looked to be the remains of part of her own intestines, eyes wearily looking down at the sudden hole that had appeared in her midsection, completely obliterating her lower spinal cord. She could recover, but yet her flesh would not heal. It would not mend. Rize began to panic with what little strength she had, her kagune slamming into the human and sending him flying into the wall with a loud thud. Yet darkness overtook her vision, sending her into a deep sleep. (3/4)
>>3998586That Ghoul lady, Rize was far more troublesome than what her hands were worth, you had no doubt about it. You winced as you attempted to stand up, a lancing pain erupting through your side. Her tentacle had just utterly ruined your kidney, you knew that, along with the same arm whose shoulder had been bitten. With your good arm tightly grabbing onto your broken one, you attempted to rise, only to slide downwards. Suddenly, a pedestrian appeared from out of nowhere, staring at the two of you before he immediately began to call someone through his phone. For a moment, you thought he was an enemy stand user, only to realize that you were delirious with blood loss. Your fears of dying again were assuaged by the distant sounds of a siren, along with what appeared to be people yelling loudly. Still, all of this was worth it, if only for a glimpse of Rize's face as Killer Queen punched a hole through her mid section, practically removing what organs she had there. Fate was still on your side after all of its blundering. That thought gave you relief, as you passed into the darkness and back into the light.--Your eyes blearily opened only to be blinded by the sun. You were wearing a breathing mask, with a noticeable pain on your left side, albeit at a lower intensity than what it was the day prior. You turned your head to the side, only to see what appeared to be a dialysis machine that was attached into your wrist. You remember seeing one of those before, in your previous life when your Father's kidneys failed. He died a month later from natural causes.Now that you have awoken in what appears to be the closest Hospital to your location, what shall you do?>Ruminate over Rize's lost hands>Laugh, for Luck is once again on the side of Yoshika- Kaneki Ken>Ponder over what surgeries they did to you>Attempt to get up >(Write-In)

>>3999542A very late update, things came in my way. I will update soon..
>>3999753Now you began to remember what had happened last night. The fight against your first victim, how you'd opened a hole inside of her waist with Killer Queen. Her tentacles surprised you with their strength, as you thought that such flimsy appendages couldn't do that much damage to you. You were wrong. But the very fact that you had awoken in a hospital and not in the afterlife made you chuckle, only for it to evolve into full blown laughter. Fate truly was on your side, as you were certain that your wounds were very lethal. You practically on your last legs at the very end, which meant that you would have died had it not been for the fateful stranger who called 110. Still, you wondered if they had to remove something from you, as you were certain that you required surgery due to the condition you were in. Before you were able to call up a nurse, an elderly physician entered the room. His nametag read "Akihiro Kanou". You figured that he was a doctor who worked here, or perhaps the surgeon that had likely operated on your body. "Ah. You're awake." The Doctor stated, clearly not expecting you to be up so early after what had happened yesterday. "Well Kaneki-san, I just have to say that you are an incredibly lucky man. Not only did you survive a Ghoul attack, but you were able to emerge mostly unscathed. Although, we could not save your kidney. We'll give you the recommended changes in your diet after, as there were no kidneys available at the hospital." He finished, leaning towards you. He gave his condolences about Rize, who was the only victim of the Ghoul attack. They classified her mortal injury as being caused by a Kagune, specifically a Rinkaku type.If only he knew who Rize was. Still, with all things considered, you got off almost uninjured from your fight, save for a missing kidney and a broken arm. You'd have to wear a cast for the next couple weeks. Now that you've been discharged from the Hospital, what shall you do?>Walk back home to recuperate and eat some actual food>Grumble to yourself about the changes in your diet, before going to your local Cafe to get something to drink>Look through your phone to see if you missed anything

>>3999810>Grumble to yourself about the changes in your diet, before going to your local Cafe to get something to drinkAww, we couldn't have gotten Rize's kidney?
>>3999876As you walked to your local Cafe, you looked through your phone, only to see a wall of text messages from Hide. Reading through the messages, it seems that Hide immediately noticed that you weren't home, as he was going to surprise you with a gift for finally getting a girlfriend. Then he began to realize that something was amiss, and attempted to call you several times, before he ended up asking if you were alright. His final messages were simply notifications, such as him leaving a spare set of your clothing for you to change into at the hospital, along with a 'gift :D' as he so eloquently put it in chat. As you walked into the local Cafe, you sat down to order something whilst you grumbled about your new dietary restrictions.The waitress who received your order momentarily widened her eyes in shock, before she composed herself, coming back with your drink, a hot piping cup of coffee. The dark caffeine soothes your nerves, and you figured that it was time to go home and study, even if you were currently suspicious of the waitress. You don't quite remember her name. Why would she be so shocked if you were alive after your encounter with Rize? Did this mean that she knew that Rize was a ghoul, and by extension she herself was possibly a ghoul? You'd certainly investigate this matter, but you are stopped by yourself. You reminded yourself that curiosity only lead to an absolute disruption of your quiet life. So you simply sent a text to Hide, telling him that yes, you did in fact recover. Now that you've exited the Cafe, what shall you do?>Return home and see what this gift was>Return home and study, opening the gift the next day>Investigate the Waitress from Anteiku>Go look for a Job>(Write-In)
>>3999923>Return home and see what this gift was

>>3999923>Return home and see what this gift wasIt'd be weird to go back in for an investigation of her. We can cyber stalk her later, if we remember her name. It could be worth getting in touch with Ghouls, we get all the hands, and they get...the rest. A match Made In Heaven if you ask me.
>>3999928>>3999933>>3999938Return home and see what this gift was
>>3999968After you sat in that chair, ruminating over your suspicions, you decided that it would be best for you to return home and discover what Hide had left for you as a present. You had no idea what it was, but you were certain that it was something cheap and small, given your respective budgets as college freshmen. It would be unwise of you to question or otherwise investigate the Waitress, as she or maybe her compatriots might reveal themselves and attack you. You knew that you could destroy them all without any problems on your part, except for the one problem of it making too many waves. There would be investigations more intense than those in Morioh who chased you. As such, you decided that it would be better for you to investigate more about Ghouls later on in the week.Returning home to find it neatly organized, you found a sticky note on your plain wooden table, it simply saying "I know how organized you like your house, so I decided to clean it up while you were busy recovering. - Hide." You were reminded why you were still Hide's friend. He was a good friend, and also one that would give you company along with his very presence diverting any suspicion away from you. You were surprised at just how fond you were growing of him, but just like Shinobu, you figured that it was just something to better help you keep your quiet life.You found a small box by the note, and opening it revealed a bolt of strangely patterned cloth. You unraveled it to reveal that it was a tie, a purple one with white skull patterns running down each side, with larger iterations of the skull pattern going down the middle. How do you feel about this present?>Elated yet cautious, as you do not want to get too fond of Hide>Grateful, you will repay him eventually for this>Surprised.

>>4000347You felt grateful towards Hide, and that was what had bothered you for the rest of the night. In your previous life, you had not felt grateful to many people, save for your Father, whose works allowed you to keep your quiet life and Shinobu, who you grew to eventually care for. This unfamiliar emotion exhibited by you in this moment of moments has cemented an uncomfortable fact into your mind. Hide had become more dear to you than your Mother, who brought you into this world and sought to teach you of her incredibly self destructive ideology. Now that you thought about it, you knew that your Mother would occasionally break under moments of stress, most exacerbated by her younger sister, your Aunt who you had disposed of.The police who later investigated the Crime Scene almost immediately called in the CCG, where a first class investigator and his fellow junior investigators came to investigate the scene of your crime. You do not know how they felt about your works in particular, but you knew that you had still had it, even without Killer Queen, as the CCG later declared her cause of death to be a particularly brutal ghoul. Your Mother never truly recovered from that incident, but it was certainly a learning experience for you in this new world. That Ghouls existed and even if you didn't have Killer Queen by your side, a quiet life might have been possible by foisting off the blame onto the local Ghoul population.Speaking of which, you still needed to find a job. The visit to the Hospital only mildly affected your funds, as Doctor Kanou apparently paid for your surgery out of his own money for some odd reason. You had no idea why he did so.What shall you do?>Actually go and look for a job>Visit the local CCG Branch Office, as it does offer jobs as grisly and unquiet as they are, yet they also have a tendency to give tours around the local facility>Visit the local bookstore and get a book by Hisashi Ogura, famed Ghoul Researcher
>>4000575>Actually go and look for a jobSee if the cafe is hiring.
>>4000575>Actually go and look for a job
We should probably try eating something soon.Quiet life is ruined.Dude fate what the fuck I thought we were cool.
>>4000709The next day you decided to go look for a job, starting early in the morning after you finished your daily morning routine. You started off by drafting the viable job careers that you could take as of now, along with any future careers that would be desirable for you. Such as an office worker, which was your previous job before Josuke, that teenage delinquent with nothing to do ruined your life. Of course, given that you were still a college student, you'd probably only be able to either be an intern at the CCG or as a worker at a restaurant, both career options that would be typical for one such as you. Your early morning search was interrupted by your college classes, during which you noticed several complications that you did not have. For one, while you could eat food rather comfortably, breathing started to become a hassle for you. In fact, at one point in class you had to be dismissed and sent to the hospital due to an onset attack which left you struggling for breath in the middle of the class. Doctor Kanou handled your case and rapidly diagnosed you with asthma, which was not unusual in of itself, but when the Doctor began to look through your medical records, something became apparent. Your family on both sides did not have early onset asthma nor did they develop asthma in their youth.You were prescribed medicine and returned home with several suspicions in your mind. Your family's medical records did mention that your Father suffered from asthma by age 15, and that in his early 30s, he had developed osteoporosis along with arthritis, both diseases that would normally only be found within the elderly. And yet, he died in his mid 40s by sudden and total organ failure. His cause of death was determined by the doctors to be Multiple Organ Failure, a result from his organs seemingly ceasing to function due to either old age or heavy substance abuse. You knew that he neither smoked nor did he drink, given what sort of profession he was in. From what little you remember along with your Mother's anecdotes, your father grew seemingly senile in his last years. The search for a job has been interrupted by several bizarre revelations in your family tree.What shall you do?>Investigate your Father and who he was>Look through your family tree carefully to see where this sudden onset of asthma could stem from>Continue searching for a job, perhaps at Anteiku(All three options are mutually exclusive)

>>4000786>>Investigate your Father and who he was
>>4000807>>4000835>>4000837>>4000864>>4000881Investigate your Father
>>4000947You were never given the opportunity to know your Father in this world, as he had died when you were at the age of 4. At one point, you were curious about your body's Father, so you went through his belongings and found his collection of literature, and you had to admit as a literature student that his tastes were quite good. There were Japanese translations of the The Brother's Karazmov, Anna Karenina and other books of such nature. There were also works from Japanese authors, your favorite being Osamu Dazai. In your previous life, you had found his works to be amusing, but now with an entirely new insight into life and death, you began to appreciate them more.Beginning your search in your Father's belongings, what you found was rather odd. There was a small badge in a pile of mementos kept from him, it identifying him as a First Class investigator of the CCG. You had no idea how he came to met your mother, but according to the photos that your mother kept of him, he was a middle aged man with white hair and wrinkles, already with several signs of being older than he looked. Besides that, there was not much about your Father. His suit became more familiar as a result of it, and was probably what might've triggered Rize's strong response, given how you were a tie away from being dressed as a senior Ghoul Investigator. You felt that you had dodged a bullet by not wearing it on that date, but still you have not found a job yet.You later took a shower, stretched for 20 minutes before downing it with a glass a milk, which allowed you to sleep through the night like a baby. The next day, Hide invited you out to dinner to celebrate your second day free from the Hospital from the Big Incident. Do you accept?>Yes>No9
>>4001078>Yes. Wear the tie he got for you.
>>4001084Support>Father was a half humanDoes that make us 1 quarter ghoul then?
>>4001084>>4001091>>4001104>>4001111>>4001731Accept and wear the Tie he got you
>>4002753You accepted his invitation rather quickly, and began to pick out your clothing for the next day. For a moment, you were half tempted to wear your Father's suit, only to for you to be reminded of its rather dire condition. Thankfully, your Mother befriended a Tailor, said Tailor being the one who you sent the suit to. There was also the matter of wearing a suit to a casual outing that would just reek of non-conformity, bringing much unwanted attention onto you. On top of that, your Father was an investigator, and a good one at that. He in actuality looked quite similar to yourself when you were both at the same age, with the same round face and nose, albeit his eyes were a bit larger than yours, along with his hair being completely white. The similarities were enough so that a Ghoul might have mistaken you for your father, which again, would have caused a massive wave of attention which you did not want. So instead, you simply folded a short sleeved polo short, the dark grey sweater that you had worn for the majority of your late High School early College career along with the same pants that you wore as always. You also left the tie there. The next day came and went as it always did, with you making breakfast for yourself while listening to the radio. You went to school dressed in the clothing that you had picked out, albeit your new tie was folded somewhere in your pocket. The two of you went out to eat later that day for lunch, at your favorite place nonetheless, Big Girl, which was an American themed restaurant chain that definitely did not exist in your previous life.You had to admit, their burgers were very good, good enough to the point where Hide and you were regulars at the local establishment. You returned home and began to study, which mostly consisted of reading through an entire book and then analyzing them. You had read and analyzed the book rather quickly, but you made sure to turn in your assignment around the time someone your age would have, along with an acceptable essay neither stood out nor was unexpected by a student of your age.Now that you've finished up your errands for the rest of the day, what shall you do?>Go pick up your inhaler from the local pharmacy>Visit the local CCG Branch building and perhaps go on their tour>Visit the local bookstore and buy a book about ghouls by some Ghoul Expert you saw on TV a lot>(Write-In)

>>4002899>>4002907>>4002928Pick up your Inhaler from the local pharmacy
>>4003021You were due to pick up the inhaler you had been prescribed by Doctor Kanou, who seemed to be handling your medical care for some reason. The Doctor insisted that you only scheduled a checkup with him, and seeing as how he was technically paying your medical bills, you didn't mind that caveat. Albeit you were beginning to grow a little suspicious of the Doctor's intentions. Nevertheless, you still had to pick up that Inhaler, so you walked to your Local Pharmacy and got it along with its medication. You were diagnosed with a mild form of Asthma that could grow worse over time. You had no idea why or how it even happened, but in spite of the rather low risk of you suffering an attack, going through the motions would attract unnecessary attention onto yourself.You walked back home with a small bag with your inhaler and medication within. You returned home, rather curious as to why Ghouls even existed. There were multiple theories, some stating that they branched off from humanity several hundred thousand years ago to the outlandish who claimed that they were introduced by an Alien species in attempt to conquer humanity. Information about Ghouls and their abilities is rather sparse, mostly due to misinformation and mass confusion about Ghouls in general online. Even the CCG only bothered give out pamphlets detailing Ghoul activities, their diet and how to tell if your neighbor was a Ghoul. With your curiosity peaked, you decided to go online for a bit with your old(yet in your mind, stunningly advanced laptop). What did you do?>Go to several forums dedicated to Ghouls and knowledge relating to them>Visit the CCG's official website>Visit Sen Takatsuki's official website>(Write-In)

>>4003070>>4003080>>4003125Go to various forums about Ghouls
>>4003272WAIT! Get a VPN first, we're not animals.
>>4003272>>4003272You spent your time visiting several different forums which were all exclusively dedicated for ghouls. Some people developed an unhealthy obsession with the things, given how detailed some posts were. However, there was one thing that all forums held in common. They had all had at least one thread dedicated to the 'One Eyed King', some sort of Ghoul of semi-myth that was apparently leading the ghoul terrorist organization Aogiri Tree against the CCG. There were threads about the rumored types of Ghouls that existed, which you took interest in particularly because of their threads about half-ghouls. As it turned out, Ghouls and Humans were able to interbreed, even if it was mostly theoretical, with the mythical 'One Eyed Ghoul' popping up every now and then.The Forums even had sections about Ghoul biology and why they had to eat humans. The information you gleaned from that section was great for your understanding of ghouls, even if it was a bit hard to grasp at times. Apparently due to a change in their tongue structure, ghouls could not fathom eating anything that was not human flesh, which was theorized to have evolved due to their unique food source. Ghouls were obligate cannibals, forced to eat either each other or humans. Apparently ghoul flesh tasted terrible to a ghoul, which did explain why their population had managed to stay semi-stable in the face of regular culling by humans. Now that you knew more about ghouls, you figured that if any of your future prey ever happened to be one, then you'd have an advantage over them. After all, Killer Queen was superior to anything a ghoul could do, as proven with your encounter with Rize. Eventually your brief stint of internet exploration came to an end as night fell. You felt your urge to kill slowly begin to rise.What shall you do?>Go out for a nightly walk around your block>Visit Anteiku for a late cup of coffee>Search for a Job >(Write-In)

I will return tomorrow at around 12 PM to update. Vote open until then. Discussion is encouraged.
>>4003863So have we tried eating regular food yet if so what was our reaction and what does this mean?
>>4003863Has Killer Queen retained Bites the Dust, or does Kira believe that he's lost the ability in the transition to this new life?For that matter, is Killer Queen still capable of using Sheer Heart Attack?Will Kira's Sheer Heart Attack be able to do some of the things that it was capable of in Part 8?
>>4003887No. I'm wondering just how long we can maintain quiet life until Kira realizes he is a ghoul. >>4004135Requiem Stands are usually stripped down versions of themselves so we probably don't have sheer heart attack. But, that means when we do get sheer heart attack we might acquire either version or maybe something completely different like under pressure.
>>4004181>Requiem Stands are usually stripped down versions of themselvesAll two of them, one of which retained its original abilities pumped up to max in addition to the most broken ability in the canon series? Besides, Killer Queen isn't a true requiem stand, it wasn't hit with the arrow - the user was.
>>4004190>it wasn't hit with the arrow - the user was.Eh, potato tomato.
>>4003457>Visit Anteiku for a late cup of coffee>>4003887We managed to drink a cup of milk with no problems - IIRC ghouls can't stomach anything but coffee without vomiting all over the place unless they're a one eyed ghoul?Honestly I'm going to laugh so damn hard if Kiraneki winds up an Eto-tier ghoul, because his very body is betraying his wish for a quiet life. He's going to be so pissed
>>4004190Sorry I actually meant reincarnated stands fuck I'm retarded .
>>4004512More valid, although part 8's Killer Queen still had some version of Sheer Heart Attack.

>>4004703Hey, real life is always more important. Take care!
So while we're waiting I'm wondering what kinds of autism you guys have tucked away for when the main SQR threads come back on around the 23rd or so. I have a comprehensive technique list that is larger then the move lists of 3 or 4 conventional fighting game characters put together. I don't know how Hori couldn't think of some of these, there are so many possible applications for concussive force and when you partner it with basic martial arts research you can get some really cool stuff. He really didn't need to add 7 quirks if he wanted some variety in the combat.
>>4005340None, because the autism meme is stale and honestly trash.Early threads of SQR had anons take it way too far.
>>4005396Most of us have made it a point to dial the autism down a little bit since it did get out of hand several times (The Stain Pissing Incident), but this kind of retarded speculation and madlad-ism is part of what makes STANDOQM and his quests so popular. It doesn't matter if anything is actually connected or true, it's just fun to have all these conspiracies on a cork board and imagine that there's some kind of galaxy brain scheme behind literally everything that's happened.If you can't stand the heat then get out of the kitchen, Anon.
As it turns out, I cannot update today. I'll try to update tomorrow by 4 PM Pacific Time. Hopefully. Apologies for the inconvenience.
>>4005340After the last thread I somehow managed to shit out an entire essay of raw autistic speculation in a single day. I'm not sure whether to be amazed,impressed, appalled or disgusted by what I've made. On a side note my powerlevel is so high now that I might be undertaking an ao3 novelization of SQR and giving it that extra layer of big fancy words and extra detail in the writing. Do you guys think that I should have the prologue be a slightly altered end of the King Crimsion fight followed by Giornio's perspective on watching the universe end during his vacation to Florida or should I play it safe and do the not all men are created equal speech but upgrade it to a full existential rant about the inescapable contrasts of the universe and thier role in mortal existence? It would be wierd to have 2 prologues and I'm not sure which one fits best. More info on the project when SQR comes back. >>4005396Autism is merely a title we have attached to a much wider array of concepts. At this point the definition of autism in these threads is 1. Anything that inquiries on existential concepts 2. Wild speculation with or without evidence3. Zealously held ideals or incredibly pronounced personality traits that can be observed in a person4. Acting on biological or ideological reflex without thinking 5. The core human instinct to fuck the most athletic female available 6. Complex ideas or thinking It was pretty bad back then but all autism is centered around the most recent information so it makes sense that the dated threads are so cringe inducing.>>4005517The galaxy brain scheme does indeed exist but what few things we have guessed correctly are smothered in inaccurate information. What's freaked me out the most is topics that have been discussed here months ago have appeared confirmed in the manga as actually canon in the chapters since Stando came back. AfO free quirk extraction and a conveniently bulldozer-making amount of acid gel production being confirmed in quick succession makes me very suspicious of what's going on here.
>>4005747>very suspicious of what's going on here.Araki and Horikoshi have fused into a single being, and call themselves StandoQM.
>>4003457You briefly mulled over your urge to kill over a nice cup of coffee at Anteiku, your local cafe. It was a small and quiet place that never seemed to lack customers, even in the later hours of the night. You had to admit that Anteiku was preternaturally good when it came to their coffee. Nothing in your previous life could compare, except for the cup of cappuccino you had at Tonio's restaurant before Josuke and his band of delinquents decided to thoroughly trash your life. That man could make magic with his food, even if the process was highly unusual. Irregardless, you found that Anteiku's coffee came close, and that was enough for you. Your visit was not as quiet as it should have been, as you saw the suspicious glances that the Waitress threw your way. Perhaps it was the way you smelled? You sniffed your sleeve, smelling nothing outside of the norm. You chalked it up to something only she could smell, before you paid your bills and left the establishment. It was a nice night in Tokyo, the stars were out in the open, revealed from the normal veil of light pollution that came their way.

>>4006723>Return home and plan for the next day
>>4006735>>4006790>>4006809Return home and plan for the next day
>>4006842You returned home later that day, with the waitress still on your mind. She was certainly pretty, there was no doubt about that, but you were certain that she was far younger than you. While you may have been a serial killer, you preferred girls who were either slightly older than you or around your exact age. Anything more or less would have thrown your normality into jeopardy. As you returned home, you took a shower and began your daily routine, even if it was a bit harder than it used to be. For one your bones have begun to recently ache in a way that they didn't before, and you feel a lot less limber than you used to be.It was almost as if your body was 33 years old instead of the 18 years it should have been. This shockingly familiar situation left you reeling for the next minute, before you began to settle into your stretches with much more comfort than you had before. It seemed that in spite of all of the years that you had lived in this body, your very self wished to be like your older self. You suspect that it stemmed from your subconscious, but you didn't quite understand why. Nor did you care, as you were a literature major and your interests mostly consisted of having a quiet life. You'd be damned before you'd have anything jeopardize this opportunity for you to live again. College classes went by as smoothly as they did usually, albeit you were forced to detour from your regular path. You were forced to go down several alleyways and then into another section of alley that lead into another alley. You were annoyed at the CCG for damning you to this convoluted path with their investigation of the surrounding area. There, you found a ghoul eating a dead person's body, a starved one from the looks of it. Inwardly, you cursed. What was with Luck sending you ghouls every now and then? One ghoul was rare enough in the 20th Ward, and that one was made even rarer by her personality type. He hasn't noticed you as of yet.What shall you do?>Flip a coin in his direction, with a silent whisper of 'Killer Queen'>Ignore him and continue down your detour>Question him, as you were alone and thus your 'regular' reputation would not be jeopardized by your curiosity>(Write-In)

>>4008394For the first time in your new life, a Ghoul was not being a blithering idiot by attacking or otherwise harassing you. Not that it was hard or anything, given how the only ghoul you'd ever met was Rize, who had stunningly beautiful hands, the very sight of them making the entire cat (heh) and mouse chase worth it. Better yet, you were certain that you were completely alone with nobody to see you break the image of normality that you had cultivated around yourself. Now was the time if any to satisfy your slowly growing curiosity which you grew to hate. "Hello." You said in a voice that could best be described as confident, self assured, even if your friend Hide often called you 'Seneca' as a joke. The fact that you got that reference did not make it any better. The ghoul looked up, its black and red eyes practically boring into your soul. Or they would have, had it not been for the surprise on the Ghoul's face, followed by hunger and then disgust as it sniffed the air. It turned to you, then back to the corpse, and then it nonchalantly broke the corpse's arm off at the elbow joint. "Want some?" It said as it brought the offending limb up, its fingers and hand grotesque. You shivered and replied, "No." a little too quickly for it to be normal. "More food for me then." The ghoul began to eat forearm, starting at the fingers and then down, mulching the flesh and bone with each powerful crunch of his jaws. "By the way, what the fuck is wrong with you?" The ghoul asked, stripping a bit of flesh from the person's thigh, eating it. "What do you mean?" You felt confused. "You smell like a girl. As in y'know, your kakuhou smells like one." Wait wha-You froze. You could still eat human food, so why did it confuse you for being a ghoul?What shall you do?>Blow up the Ghoul and pretend this never happened>Cough and make up an excuse for leaving>"What did you say?" >(Write-In)

>>4008675"Excuse me, what did you just say?" You asked with a mild hint of malice leaking through your normally calm self. "I said that you smell like a girl." The ghoul responded, nonchalant as ever. Dear god, it seemed that the Ghoul might've been a ghoul version of Hide, and that would've been troublesome. "What do you mean by that?" The Ghoul looked at you with an expression that asked if you were a retard, before it shrugged, taking another bite from the Corpses' thigh and then swallowing before it answered. "Look, I don't know who brought you up -(Probably some brain damaged ghoul)- but your Kakuhou should smell like a guy's. I wonder if yours is faulty?" The Ghoul asked, curiously approaching your body. "Can I see?">"Yes.">"No.">"Killer Queen."
>>4008741>"Killer Queen" "My name is Kaneki Ken. I'm 19 years old. My appartment is in the northeast section of town, where the university is, and I am not married. I am a student at the same university, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I may have been diagnosed with a mild Asthma, but besides that I have a clean bill of health. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone."
>>4008757This and >yes
>>4008757Legal drinking age in Japan is 20.
>>4008876"Killer Queen." "Wha-" The Ghoul was cut off by its body suddenly bulging outwards, cracking in various places as a bright iridescent flame erupted from deep within its body. It continued to explode, its shattered form continuing to fragment, down to the very atom. In the span of two seconds, the only thing that had ever remained of the ghoul was a rapidly dispersing wisp of dust that was about the size of one of your hairs. The body by the ghoul soon joined in its fate, violently disintegrating into nothingness with a touch from Killer Queen. Your stand was always your most useful tool in the previous world, and it has proved itself to still be that ever useful gift from your Father in this world as well.You whistled a short tune to yourself as you got home at exactly around 8 PM, before you took a shower and eventually retired for the night. Before going to bed and after performing your standard routine, what did you do?>You spent a little time reading over some books that you hadn't finished yet>You spent some time studying before sleep>(Write-In)
>>4008953>You spent time examining your body. What the ghoul said about your 'smell' earlier has you concerned, and you'd rather not be surprised by strange developments.

>>4008799Clearly, social pressures force him to make an appearance at college parties, and to refuse to drink would be a disruption of normalcy at such an event.

>>4008963>>4008981>>4009004>>4009005>>4009050Examining your body
>>4010176You spent a good chunk of time checking over your own body, as that Ghoul mentioned that you somehow smelled like a girl. If that was how you smelled, then it would completely obliterate your quiet life in ways that you couldn't even begin comprehend. You idly chewed a single finger nail as you lifted your shirt, looking over your relatively thin yet toned body for any blemishes. There were none, save for the scar on your left kidney, from the operation that saved your life two weeks ago. That was not enough to assure you, as from what that Ghoul said, it seemed obvious to it that you smelled like a girl in spite of the two weeks of relative peace you enjoyed post-operation. If you had smelled off, you wouldn't have doubted that Hide would be first to pick up on it and bring it up to you somewhere in private, just the way you liked. That meant that the Ghoul was either telling a lie, something that you doubted given how genuine it seemed, or that you smelled like a female ghoul due to pheromones or scent. You had once read a CCG flier which detailed general facts about Ghouls, the first fact being that Ghouls were purpose-built predators of man, built in every way to be utterly superior than him in all aspects. That included their unique biology, which allowed them to emit pheromones in order recognize themselves among their prey. Your grasp on biology was tenuous at best, but you knew for certain that Ghouls are a complete miracle, somehow surviving the original split and mutating into their own connected subspecies with Humanity running about in all ways possible. You briefly pondered if a person could be artificially turned into a ghoul, before you fell yourself drifting off into sleep.The next day occurred as usual, except during your daily walk with Hide, he told you that he had to get something from an upperclassman and asked if you wanted to come.What did you say?>Yes>No
>>4010197>YesHide will try to drag us along either way, best to avoid conflict.
>>4010205>>4010215>>4010256>>4010260Yesapologies for the lateness, ended up falling asleep on accident which should not be happening.
>>4010537Sleeping can be healthy for you, it's generally a good idea to do it once a day or so.
>>4010537"Yes. Sure." You said, almost too quickly for your comfort. Hide pretended not to notice, instead walking down towards the dorms of Kamii University, directly located south from the Main Office. The two of you soon came across it, a large spartan building that somehow managed to resemble a hospital more than even hospitals. The insides were as calm and orderly as the building itself, mostly empty except for the occasional student going up the stairs or down, presumably to their rooms. Entering the elevator, you saw Hide quickly motioning for you to get out, and you soon knew why.The elevator's buttons were completely broken. As you exited, you found out that the elevator was worked just thirty minutes before, until some asshat came along and broke all of the buttons. As soon as you exited, you saw an elderly custodian quickly wheel on by, an apologetic look on his face as he quickly blocked the entrance with a roll of yellow tape. The walk up the staircase to the third floor was mildly annoying, although it was offset by the conversation you had with Hide."Hey. Hide." You began, your happy-go-lucky friend turning his head in acknowledgement. "Do I smell like a girl?" "Woooooah! 'Neki! I didn't know you put on perfume!" Hide teased, before leaning in and sniffing. "Nope. You smell like your usual self, full of 'neki and other things." "Gee, thanks Hide. Also isn't his dorm on a different floor?" You came to realize as you read the sign in front of the both of you. "Sixth Floor". The two of you quickly ran down the staircase in unison, in an almost synchronous fashion before you reached the third floor and slowed down. "Here it is. Almost there." Hide said in between breaths, before he stopped and took in a deeper breath. You knew exactly what he was going to do, and you didn't like it."Hide. Maybe you should knock-" Your suggestion was made too late, as Hide slammed the door open with a loud "HELLO!!" You saw a girl half undressed on your upperclassman's lap, the two of them making out. They had suddenly stopped, as the girl detached herself from your upperclassman and turned to look at the two of you, screaming as she wiggled about on his lap, before getting off and running away.What did you say?>"On behalf of Hide, I am genuinely sorry for that.">You remained silent>(Write-In)
>>4010578>"On behalf of Hide, I am genuinely sorry for that."
>>4010587Also, check her hands.
>>4010578>>"On behalf of Hide, I am genuinely sorry for that."
>>4010668The room was engulfed in an awkward silence, a silence that you were first to break. "On behalf of Hide." You began, perfectly bowing at a low 45 degree angle, one bow that you had grown familiar to in your Quiet Life when you had to mimic Kosaku. "I am genuinely sorry for that." You finished, rising to see the disinterested look of your upperclassman. Hide's mouth opened and closed like a pufferfish, before he finally caught up and said, "Yeah... Sorry about that." Sheepishly. "Nagachika." Your upperclassman began, his voice cool and overall disinterested, "I really *don't* like having my territory violated." He seemed to be adjusting his glasses for a moment, continuing. "Can't you knock? Where's the respect for your elders?" He asked mockingly as Hide sputtered, "I-I wasn't trying to- " Only to be interrupted by your upperclassman. "You're speaking too loud and clear for that." As passive-aggressive as he was, your upperclassman did have a point. If Hide wished to apologize, he should have spoken less clearly and with deference. The upperclassman sighed, getting up from his chair as he idly scratched his stomach."Yo. You're a friend of Hide's right?" He asked, slowly blinking each individual eye. This in turn caused Hide to up his Hide-ness, as he exclaimed, "Oh yeah! This is my friend, Kaneki! We've known each other since we were kids." You really wished that he hadn't introduced you like that. However, college was temporary, and your skills in being normal were eternal. "I see. So you're name's Kaneki." That was obvious. You did not know why he repeated it so fluidly. You didn't even get the chance to greet him, as he started to slowly walk towards you. "I'm a sophomore in the pharmaceutical department. Nishiki Nishio." He introduced himself, before he lazily took a knee, lowering himself to your height, as he was standing in his dorm room, which specifically had the traditional lowered entrance. "Nice to meet you."What do you do?>Greet him back>Simply nod at him back>(Write-In)
>>4010709>Greet him back
>>4010709>Greet him back>Remind Hide why he came here to begin with.
>>4010808>>4010989>>4011445Greet him back and remind Hide why he came here to begin wtih
>>4011685"Nice to meet you as well." You replied, greeting him in turn before you quickly turned to Hide, reminding him of his purpose. "Ah right. Do you have the files?" Hide asked as the two of you stepped upwards into the dorm, Nishio simply rising from his position and walking towards his desk. "Hold on. It should be around here." He said, looking through a stack of [i] messy [/i] CDs. You felt your urge to fix this problem briefly spike, to the point where Hide noticed it. He quickly put his arm in front of you, holding you back from your righteous correction, mouthing 'No' as Nishio continued to look through the CDs. "It's not here." Nishio concluded, placing the stack back into a semi-organized stack, which placated you for now. "Can you take a look on that shelf over there, Nagachika?" Nishio asked, as Hide then joined in on the search. You began to rummage through his drawers at his request, secretly correcting every messy pile that you could find. As it turned out, the Disc wasn't even in the Dorm room, but at his house. You were confused, and asked him, only to be told that this was the Medical Wing of Kamii University. You blinked at this revelation, as Nishio and Hide both seemed to grow mildly uncomfortable. You brushed it off, laughing like normal before you asked Hide if you could come along with him to Nishio's house. He inevitably accepted, which led to all of you walking down a street.Your internal ruminations were interrupted by Nishio's voice calling out to you and Hide. "Wanna grab a taiyaki?" Hide, the accursed fool he was replied in the affirmative, saying "That sounds good!" What did you do?>Also get a Taiyaki. You wouldn't want to stick out after all>Refuse, as Taiyaki tended to not be perfectly molded>(Write-In)
>>4011732>Also get a Taiyaki. You wouldn't want to stick out after all
>>4012079>>4011813>>4011790>>4011774Also get a taiyaki
>>4013803You had to admit, this taiyaki did look good. Originally, you got one so as to not stick out in your friends group, but now that you had a closer look at it, you'd say that it only rewarded your tendency to not stick out. The outer pastry looked crispy, the fish mold almost perfect instead of being malformed like usual. Even the steam gave this particular taiyaki a particularly delectable look. You took a bite into it, the taste of anko predominant among all of your senses. This was far too sweet for you, but you had to persist in eating it in order to keep from standing out. That in of itself was odd, as you distinctly remembered the taste of anko not being this sweet, but you figured that it was a peculiarity of the shop you bought it from."You're not on the committee, Kaneki?" Your thoughts were once again interrupted by Nishio. You swore that you would kill him when you had the opportunity to. "No. It's too much for me." You admitted, sending a withering glance to Hide as the three of you continued walking, eating your respective taiyakis. Nishio complimented the taste of the Taiyaki as being just sweet enough, to which you personally disagreed with him. From what you could glean from his and Hide's conversation, Nishio seemed to be a shrewd individual, one that might've been able to see past your carefully constructed self. "It's right around that corner," Nishiki said in front of you, as you lagged behind deep within your thoughts. "It's pretty far in there." The two of you walked in, Nishio walking with you. It was a dead end."Huh? This is a dead end." Hide stated the obvious, before he was suddenly knocked into a pile of garbage by Nishio. "Yup." You had to hold in a chuckle, as this situation seemed to be far too ridiculous for you to believe. You, Kaneki Ken, an ordinary man running into more than a single ghoul in the course of a month!? Preposterous!"Don't want anybody to see us now, do we?" Nishio sneered as Hide flew into the assorted junk in the alleyway. You took in a deep breath, before you...>Began to tell Nishio just how fucking done you are with life>Explained to Nishio that you were a quiet person who enjoyed having a quiet life, but you just couldn't tolerate meeting three ghouls in the same month>Tossed a coin at Nishio, aiming to at least blow his arm off>(Write-In)

>>4017251"My name is Kaneki Ken. I'm 18 years old, turning 19 soon. My apartment is in the northeast section of the 20th Ward, where Kamii University is located close by, and I am not married." You began, much to Nishio's confusion. "Hey- What the fuck are you doing?" He demanded, but you continued on nonetheless. "I am a student at the same university as you, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, nor do I drink." Nishio immediately took on a combative position, his feet evenly spaced out, turning towards you as he bared his teeth. With a sickeningly sweet squelch, he revealed his Kagune, which best resembled a sort of two pronged slug or a shiny tie hung loose, its incandescent blue irritating your eyes. "I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get 8 hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I may have been diagnosed with a mild case of asthma, but besides that, I have a clean bill of health." You recited, the details coming to the front of your mind like a wave crashing onto the shore. "What the fuck are you talking about?!" Nishio shouted, his kagune leering menacingly towards your location, his body tensed up for a pounce, and yet seemed to remain frozen."I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. However, it seems that society in turn brings me trouble. Do you know how many ghouls I've run into this past month? Three." You continued on, heedless of the look of a dawning realization on Nishio's face. (1/2)
>>4017410"First was Rize, good hands and a kindred spirit. That was until she tried to eat me, but sanctity of the date ruined notwithstanding, I killed her anyways. She was my first kill. Then there was another ghoul who was eating someone in an alleyway while I was walking back from home. He told me that I smelled like a girl, so I killed him for that." Nishio's eyes widened, his body shaking in what could either be fear or him attempting to overcome his locked body, trying to kill you before you finished. "Tell me, Nishio? Is this because I smell like a woman?" You asked, before Killer Queen manifested from you, casting a dark shadow over yourself. It grabbed a single 10 Yen Coin, flipping it towards Nishio. He finally moved, bringing his kagune up to the coin in an attempt to bat it away, only for it to detonate. His screams filled satisfied you immensely, as his kagune was practically cut in two, one half disintegrating while the other half bled profusely. Nishio cursed repeatedly, withdrawing his kagune as he slammed into the wall, cracking it. His red and black eyes blazed as he glared at you with all the energy he had left."Fucking asshole....." Nishio gasped, slumping limply into the garbage pile that he had landed on. It seemed that he might have lost too much blood. That was that, but your friend Hide seemed to still be unconscious. A small amount of foam leaked from his mouth. You sincerely hoped that his brain was not damaged in your altercation with Nishio, but that was that.Now that you have an unconscious Hide hefted onto your shoulder, where did you take him?>You took him to the local hospital, as no matter how suspicious it may have looked, you were certain that the Doctors would be able to take good care of him>You took him back to your apartment to rest, as you had walked off in even worse conditions, multiple times in fact>(Write-In)
>>4017415>You took him to the local hospital, as no matter how suspicious it may have looked, you were certain that the Doctors would be able to take good care of him
>>4017415>You took him back to your apartment to rest, as you had walked off in even worse conditions, multiple times in fact. There was something fishy about the doctors there that you couldn't ignore. It's best to play it safe.
>>4017415>>You took him to the local hospital, as no matter how suspicious it may have looked, you were certain that the Doctors would be able to take good care of himBut make sure to erase Nishio before we leave. It wouldn't do to leave our skin flakes at the site of a gristly murder after all...

Since STANDO is going to be a while I guess I'm going to put in my two cents on a more recent question. A while back someone wondered if all demons were actually independent stands. From the looks of things the answer is no, we have confirmation of divine entities existing thanks to the guardian of the united corpse being a thing, and likewise that mean that actual demons do in fact exist. Since stands have a strong connection to the supernatural it is possible that a stand with enough intellect could actually pledge it's alliance to Satan so that it could persist even after it's user died by being bound to a demon. There is a distinct possibility that at some point down the line Deku might run into some asshole who got themselves possessed and now have a Stand on top of bonus voodoo bullshit from their possession.
As it turns out, I am unable to update today. Apologies.I'll try to update tomorrow.>>4021106To answer your question, wew
>>4021237Give it a rest stando, we already know Satan has 666 stands stop playing coy. You've done everything short of stating it outright at this point.
>>4021237Oh cool it's question time. Has All Might transferred the core of OfA to Mirio yet? Is Deku's sudden surge of sociability and charisma not only from uniting his fractured a side effect of his proximity to Mirio giving him an aspect of his charm from the bloodline connection he has from the OfA quirk. It was shown in the final King Crimsion arc that a bloodline connection can go deep enough to predict the other's thoughts so just how much does he know? Does he feel where we are? Is Mirio now suffering symptoms from the feedback on his end of the connection such as overwhelming introspection,increased sweating and heart rate in close proximity to girls though he isn't bervous around them,intense urges to masterbate to Nana Shimura at unpredictable intervals, a desire to love and cherish Yuyu despite not being interested in a relationship for his entire tenure at UA, etc. ? What happens when a OfA user gets hit by a de-quirking bullet, is it under the no you isn't asspull umbrella or will the core of OfA rupture releasing all 7 quirks into the user's body, destroying thier psyche and mutating them into an insane tentacled beast that can barely be considered human? What was the fate of the MLA agents, were they successfully imprisoned, did they suicide or ((sucide)), get bailed by Re-Destro's giga jew money, or are there no public records of anything? >>4021686Nah Satan will be trapped in hell until the end times where demons walk the earth killing, raping and consuming the souls of human beings. He probably just hands them off to other demons so they can be of use.
>>4021237Has Mina pieced together the possibility that whoever she met in the alleyways might be responsible for bringing in stain and if so has she recognized that it was Deku? With everything he knows so far how suspicious is All Might that Midoriya is All for One's kid? What is the status of the speedwagon foundation post age of strife and has Santana escaped containment? My guess is since the holy corpse managed to get out of its vault and into a desert that means that whatever speedwagon existed in the SQR timeline completely collapsed during the second dark age which started by my estimates in the 2050's and ended in the late 2180's during that time the lights in his cell died allowing him to regenerate and create the right adaptations to escape the crumbling remains of his prison. Was there a second Sengoku period in Japan during the dark age where half naked mutant beserkers with giant swords clashed with archeotech mechas kept barely working after generations of decay, bullets met blades, and men faced monsters and what were the major factions in this historical period? I'm putting my money down for Okinawa being a east aisan Sparta that strived to breed an army of biologically perfect tomboys to slaughter the women and children of enemy nations, robing them of thier future and capturing thier armies for use as auxiliaries and breeding stock.
>>4017487>>4017628>>4017457The local hospital
>>4022622As it turned out, walking into the local hospital while carrying a body on your shoulder brought undue attention. Thankfully, Dr. Kanou quickly cleared up any suspicions the staff may have had, and the Hospital quickly took him in as a patient. You had no idea why Dr. Kanou was so lenient to you, but you were going to take advantage of his kindness nonetheless, as wasting an opportunity while being able to remain undetected at the same time was simply not acceptable. Realizing that you had forgotten about Nishio, you returned to the alleyway where you had left him, with the intent to erase him using Killer Queen, but his body was no longer there.It seems that ghouls are a lot tougher than they look. This was bad, as you were unable to guess as to where he slithered away, the thought causing you to bite into your nails, almost to the point of them bleeding. However, you had stopped yourself. It would not do good to mess up your hands for now, and if you ever ran into Nishio at the University, you could always just walk into his office and erase him. Still, you regretted not erasing his limp, unconscious form when you had the chance to, a thought which soured your otherwise restful sleep.The next day, your urge to kill erupted by tenfold, probably a result of being so close to a kill, yet getting blocked by your victim's escape. You felt your nails grow over the course of the school day, as you occasionally checked in on Hide through your phone. As it turned out, he had little to no lasting damage and had simply been knocked out by Nishio's blow. You somehow felt relief at this, but the feeling was short lived as your nails were beginning to get a bit too long for your liking.What did you do?>Cut your nails and divine them to see if luck would be with you>Cut your nails, but ignore your urgings for now and look into your condition>Cut your nails and look for a job to distract you>(Write-In)

>>4022715>Cut your nails and divine them to see if luck would be with youFate has been a bit hit or miss this time around. I told you we should have erased him. He either dies and leaves an unexplainable corpse or lives as an enemy with knowledge of one of our abilities.
>>4022715>Cut your nails and divine them to see if luck would be with you
>>4022733>>4022966>>4023036>>4023089Cut nails and divine them
>>4025304You cut your nails with your favorite nail clipper, a simple plain metal one that did nothing to stick out. Just like you, it lived quietly when not in use, and it fit you in a matter that you just couldn't describe. You collected your clippings like always, meticulously sorting them by size through eye, and then further sorting them with measuring tape. You then averaged their length, and found an explanation for your recent misfortune that especially became prominent after Rize's death. Your nail clippings were much shorter than usual, which meant that for now, Fate had given you the cold shoulder. You sighed, resolving to wait for at least another week before you would cut and measure them again.The next day you got lunch with Hide at Big Girl. In spite of the fact that the establishment was a chain restaurant, Big Girl's hamburger steaks were on a level that you could not hope to replicate. It was the one chain restaurant that you could tolerate going to, and the presence of their waitresses, often girls with cute hands added to the restaurant's charm. You returned home later that day after a cup of Coffee at Anteiku like always. The Waitress, Touka as her nametag read seemed to be both wary and unsettled by you, although she was skilled at hiding it. You saw her face briefly scrunch up when she came to take your order, as if she had smelled something off about you.This was the second time that this happened. Was it because she, too, could smell what Ghouls seemed to always smell from you?What did you do?>You waited until the Cafe closed, then you confronted her>You ignored her and returned home to do something else>(Write-In)
>>4025387>You waited until the Cafe closed, then you confronted herWill Fate ever leave us alone? All we have ever wished for is a life free of conflict and enemies, but it seems we have been cursed to find them wherever we go. This threat to our normalcy must be isolated and destroyed.
