You groggily wake up from the magical paradise that is sleep. You don’t know how long you were out for but even if it was night it would still be too soon after all you went through yesterday. But before you start thinking about that you feel like you should address the adorable elephant in the room. Yes, you, Johnny Ando, managed to land yourself a wonderful night with an equally wonderful girl! You thought it was a miracle that you got to be with Nina that fateful night, so the planets must’ve aligned for you to find another girl who likes a loser like you. The cutie in question is still sleeping soundly on your chest, poor girl must’ve been even more tired than you. You have no real reason to wake her up yet and she looks incredibly cute while sleeping so you’ll just let her rest on you for now. With that in mind, you awkwardly reach for your phone and glasses with one hand while using the other to hold and headpat Yu. You check the time only to find that it’s 7:47 AM, damn, really? But that isn’t the important thing here. No, that would be the fact that it’s finally Sunday, June 16th! A day you honestly thought would never come. You swear, that one day felt like months... You begin to reminisce on the day before. It all started... like this actually, with you cuddling a beautiful girl. It’s a feeling you don’t think you’ll ever get tired of. Like last time, you two cleaned the bed because you value your hygiene. Then what happened after that? Oh yeah, you met up with Scarlet, didn’t you? Now that you think about it, did she ever... One quick look through your messages shows that, yes, Scarlet did indeed send you the picture you two took together! You didn’t notice at the time but now that you look at it you can see that she was blushing for some weird reason. She was acting weird in general when you met up actually, maybe she’s not a morning person? Something to keep in mind. Since you’re already looking through your messages, you decide to look through your phone logs to see how many calls you had yesterday out of sick curiosity. And the result is... over 30 calls! And that’s not even counting the calls you made on the phone in Pleasure Palace! How is that even possible! Although, looking through your logs is a good way to help you remember what happened. That’s right, you called some of the people you’ve been getting to know recently to team up with you. Those being Xavi, B-WORM, and Dudley! Well, the third one was actually Gio but whatever. Next up was Holly! Or you guess it was Olivia who ended up answering. Regardless, you ended up talking to Aurora in an impromptu therapy session. You found that she tends to yell a lot...
>>4438577After that, you agreed to come over to her house to help her with her brother, you got a decent bit of information on the war too. Aurora tried to convince Howie to stop but unfortunately you ended up having to put him into a Judge-induced coma. It was sad to see, you know it must’ve been hard on her. So, you were understandably pretty surprised when she, despite all that, asked you if she could join your team. And, after making she fully understood what she was getting herself into, you accepted! Although, the biggest surprise came when she randomly kissed you after the fact... You know that that good feeling wouldn’t last for long though as you would soon have to see the Dewitt family break down over what happened to Howie... You don’t regret what you did but it still sucked to see the family you grew fond of so torn up over what you did. Wow, that got depressing so fast... Maybe you should focus on something else instead? Like cuddling the little lady in your arms! You’re still amazed that you got to do this with her, you’ve never done this a different girl than Nina before. It feels completely different with another girl but equally as great. You take a minute to think about it all and you can’t help but find it funny; She’s small but surprisingly fit, she acts all smug and confident but is actually very inexperienced, when you first met her she was chasing after you but you ended up wanting her. For all intents and purposes, this girl is the polar opposite of Nina. But you know if there’s one thing they have in common, it’s that they care about you as much as you care about them. You can’t hold back anymore, so you start to wake your sleeping beauty with some kisses. “Woah, take it easy there, stud.” Yu Yan mumbles out, still half asleep. “Morning Yu.” You feel a little bad for waking her up but that doesn’t stop you from continuing your assault of kisses. “Mornin’. Still excited, huh?” She gives you her classic smug look that you always love to see. As smug as a half-asleep person can be anyway. “Yeah, last night was amazing.” “Hehe, you got really into it. I never disappointed, do I?” Yu Yan is wiggling her eyebrows with her eyes closed. “Not at all, I give the service 5 stars.” You return her gesture with some eyebrow wiggling of your own, even if she can’t see it. Despite that though, your smug girl lets out a little chuckle. After that you both stay silent and enjoy the moment together. You honestly never want to get up but alas, life must move on. “Mind letting me go? I wanna put some clothes on.” It’s kinda cold still.
A gift from Chief to me, and now to you too.
>>4438586 She simply nods and complies with your request. You go to retrieve some clothes grabbing the pants from yesterday and notice that the pockets are heavier than you expected. You decide to look through them; First you find the key to your now ruined van, Xavi never did tell you what happened to it...Next you find a card, a SoL card to be exact. You got this when Aurora tried to hide the fact that she plays. You found her reaction kinda cute though. This time you find a coin? Did you randomly pick this up or something? Wait, now you remember! This is the lucky coin you used to perform magic tricks for the Dewitts! Good times. On a related note, you find a piece of paper with a phone number and ‘add me <3’ written on it. You got this from the oldest Dewitt daughter, Sina, she must’ve been very grateful, what a nice family. You can’t believe that Scarlet actually thought Holly was in love with you, there’s no way a hug that tight could’ve been anything but maternal. You pity the redhead; she just can’t wrap her head around this flame stuff. Lastly, you find the little fish hat that Naiad gave you! Such a sweet little thing, second best entity for sure. Your time on Dream Hill was an unfamiliar but unforgettable experience. That thought is instantly interrupted when you spot the uniform that you stole for your cult infiltration. What a wild ride that was... From getting to know and gaining the trust of Vivienne and Carol, to slapping a girl on the butt at the command of another, to freeing the slaves, to getting a date with a cute girl, you did it all! But you’d be remiss to not mention the most important thing of all; the fact that you beat Cult leader Bernardo Ammirati and removed his entity Chernobog! It was stressful but you’re happy with the results. You split up with Vivienne and Carol soon after on good terms, you even got tickets to Carol’s next concert! After that, you finally reunited with your team and decided to have a party to celebrate one of these days, probably today even. Then you decided to go home and the events following that bear no repeating, they are ingrained into your mind forever. You’ve got to give it yourself though, you really did accomplish a lot on that day, now that's what you call doing your best! …And Yu Yan is back to sleep. It doesn’t seem like she’s experiencing any nightmares, so that’s good! What do you do now? >Wake Yu Yan up, you need to talk!>Go make breakfast for everyone and feed your obese cat as well!>Write In.

This rule doesn't apply to the last reply of the day.Votes that require a dice roll are counted until 15 minutes have passed, so we can speed up the process. Rolls are counted until 10 minutes have passed, so be prepared! (NEW) Dice Mechanic: We always roll 1d100s!Since most people weren’t happy with the system of averaging top four rolls, we’re using best of 2/3/4 depending on the attribute a prompt requires. If Johnny is a genius and it’s a Knowledge based roll, he gets more rolls (Max. 7)! If he sucks, he gets less dice (Min. 2)! When asked for rolls, I will specify how many you’re going to get. Rolling begins after it’s asked. Rolling 100 is a critical and ignores all other rolls! In the same vein, rolling 1 means a critical failure (only for Very Hard rolls and above). The difficulty of the roll is tied with the effectiveness of the action. In other words, the harder the option the better the result! Don’t forget that at the end of the day, this is a story-driven quest! What the prompts are describing is more important than the difficulty of the rolls, for results in a fight. Again, rolls are only counted when they are posted within ten minutes of being asked, so watch out!Remember to Vote:https://www.strawpoll.me/20770975https://www.strawpoll.me/20770975https://www.strawpoll.me/20770975

So what do you guys think? Did Johnny pump Yu Yan full of his cum raw and unprotected or safe all the way? I'm in the former camp myself
(Thanks to fucking 2 days in a row, you keep your temporal level 6 for another day as well! To clarify: You keep it all Sunday!)Yeah, that’s good. You look at her sleeping so peacefully, so serene, so unlike her usual self, it’s wonderful. Time to spoil it all! You get closer to Yu Yan and push one of her cheeks with your index finger.“Hey, we need to talk.” You don’t care if it's 8 AM, you want to talk to her.“…ngh.” Yu Yan slowly swats your hand away from her face.“You were awake just a second ago...” You remain firm in your conviction to take her out of dreamland.“But I’m asleep now…” Yu Yan retorts as she grabs the bed sheets and turns away from you.“That’s not how it works.”“Yeah, I know.” Yu Yan decides to sit on the bed, her hair still so messy. She yawns loudly as she stretches. “Anything I can help you with?” Yu Yan is in a very good mood.“I wanted to talk.”“You’re really excited this morning, huh? I just want to make something clear, we’re not dating or anything like that. Just 2 very good friends having a good time.” Yu Yan shows you her tongue with defiance. “I know this just happened. But it was a little fun, and that’s it.”“Woah, you only thought of this as a little fun?” You raise an eyebrow with full-on cheekiness.“Okay, it was really fun… for both of us. I wouldn’t mind doing it again.” Yu Yan wiggles her eyebrows. She’s fully awake now. “But you know how I feel about all of this, if you really want to secure this cutie, you need to put your pants on, if you know what I mean.”“But I thought you loved it when I had them down.” You joke. Yu Yan tries not to laugh in response.“Y-You know what I meant! I want a real confession, and if you try to confess right here and right now I’m going to rip your eyes out. I have standards.” Yu Yan casually says something brutal.“That’s a little violent.” You say good-bye to that possibility.“Yeah, maybe I’m passing too much time with Nariko and Amelia, they sure like to talk about hurting people. You would be surprised how many times Amelia talks about gouging people’s eyes out.” Yu Yan shrugs apologetically.“Good thing I wear glasses.” It’s not that easy with you.“T-This isn’t what you want to talk about, right?” Yu Yan realizes she came off as very defensive for no reason. “I’m talking too much…”“Don’t be so nervous, we’re just with each other.” You smile at her.“It’s not that, I’m still half-asleep so my mind is just going wild. I know you understand that, stud.” Yu Yan is right, she isn’t really nervous about this now that you noticed. You’re not as sharp as usual in the early morning either. “But yeah, it’s something I needed to clarify, I didn’t say anything yesterday for obvious reasons.”
>>4438821“And those reasons were?” You act confused.“You really wanted me to ruin the mood you set up yesterday, you big tease?” Yu asks, a little bewildered. “Oh, you’re just being cheeky again. I’m stupid, my bad.” Yu Yan noticed. “Besides, I bet you don’t even have time for a good relationship, I don’t want middle of the road shit, we both deserve better. I know about your escapades, amigo.”How do you respond?>“You haven’t heard nothing yet…” Tell her about what you did yesterday.>“But is it really a bad time to confess? Asking for a friend.” You might want to take this to the next step.>“And you’re okay with this…?” You care about Yu’s feelings more than she seems to realize.>Write In.
>>4438824>>“And you’re okay with this…?” You care about Yu’s feelings more than she seems to realize.
>>4438824>“And you’re okay with this…?” You care about Yu’s feelings more than she seems to realize.
>>4438824>I know about your escapades, amigo.”"Uh.. Which escapades?"
>>4438824>“You haven’t heard nothing yet…” Tell her about what you did yesterday.
>>4438821>“And you’re okay with this…?” You care about Yu’s feelings more than she seems to realize.
“And you’re okay with this…?” You need to make sure.“Of course I am; I did propose it, didn’t I?” Yu Yan wants to make it painfully clear that she’s not kidding here.“Yeah, but I’m worried you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.”“Ha! My good old prince being so concerned again.” Yu Yan chuckles as she gives you a quick kiss on the cheek. “Johnny, I’m as sincere as I’m as butt naked right now, and I can tell it’s a very chilly morning. I wouldn’t lie to you just to make you feel better. That’s not how we roll.”“That’s why I’m asking you again.”“You know my answer, pal. Unless… you don’t want to do any of this stuff anymore? That would really suck… you know how much I love doing this.” Yu Yan looks concerned. “Woah, how pathetic, I’m sounding as desperate as Nina, good lord. Someone needs to shut me up.” Yu Yan facepalms.“I would never deny you from any of this.” You adjust your glasses.“Good, because I need my cuddles.” Yu Yan wiggles her eyebrows. “By the way, what were you doing yesterday before you decided to be the boldest motherfucker I’ve seen in my months’ worth of memories?”“A lot of shit.” You don’t even know where to begin.“Tell me, I’m all ears.” Yu Yan rests her elbow on the bed and expects a response.What do you do?>“I’ll tell you while I prepare breakfast.” Time to make some food.>“I dismantled the cult.” Responds all nonchalantly.>“Still being the boldest motherfucker.” Tell her about what you did to the cult.>“It’s a secret.” Wiggle those eyebrows to tease her a bit, then tell her.>Write In.
>>4438966>“I’ll tell you while I prepare breakfast.” Time to make some food.
>>4438966>>“Still being the boldest motherfucker.” Tell her about what you did to the cult.
>>4438966>“I dismantled the cult.” Responds all nonchalantly.
>>4438577Whoa, mama. That's one big image>>4438966>“Still being the boldest motherfucker.” Tell her about what you did to the cult.
>>4438966>>“I’ll tell you while I prepare breakfast.” Time to make some food.

>>4438966>“Still being the boldest motherfucker.” Tell her about what you did to the cult.
>>4438966>“I’ll tell you while I prepare breakfast.” Time to make some food.If I've learned anything from dealing with insane shit IRL, it's that food makes everything better.
“Well, I was still being the boldest motherfucker you’ve ever witnessed…” You start your recollection of all the events that transpired yesterday, it would’ve been a good moment to do the long recap here, but you already did that so fuck it!Yu Yan’s expressions is a combination between amazed, confused and pleased; like a cooking show chef when they finally get real fucking food.“Maybe you are just the boldest motherfucker I’ve ever met.” Yu Yan deadpans.“This is the part where you ask if I'm telling the truth.” You say.“Huh? Why would you lie?” Yu Yan doesn’t get it.“N-Nevermind.” You scratch the back of your head. “Can I ask you something real quick?” Yu Yan looks a little puzzled.“Yeah.”“Why didn’t you ask for anyone from the Motley Crew for help?” Yu Yan’s face tells you that she ain’t blaming you for not asking. “I know you’ve been doing your own thing for a little while now, but the question still stands.”“I… just wanted the help of people committed to eliminating the cult.” You articulate.“I get that.” Yu Yan doesn’t look fully convinced though. “Maybe you could ask me to tag along on the next big mission. I know I would be great for morale.”“You want to save the world too?”“I want to help you more than anything.” Yu Yan has no aspiration of being a real life superhero here. Not that you are, far from it if you’re honest with yourself. “It’s your call, I won’t be offended if you don’t want me there or anything, and I’m not even sure what I could do. But you can count on me anytime you need, and you know I always make myself useful.” Yu Yan smirks.“Thank you, Yu. I will if it’s necessary. I don’t even know what the next step I’m going to make is going to be, I just want to relax for a lil’ bit.” You knew Yu Yan would do this, but it’s reassuring to you to hear it from her.“I’m sure most members of the Motley Crew feel the same way, but you didn’t leave them just to ask them for help later. But unlike them, I’m pretty cool and you know it. I wouldn’t weigh things down, if you know what I mean.” Yu Yan starts laughing. “But seriously, I don’t know how you can stay here all chill talking to me; If I were you my face would be stuck to the TV to watch the disaster unfolding! C’mon, let’s take a peek!” Yu Yan drags you by the arm.“Huh? Right now?” You didn’t see this coming!“Yeah, c’mon! It’s going to be fun…!” Yu Yan is really interested in the repercussions of your actions! Seeing her all enthusiastic made you curious as well.“I guess I could prepare breakfast too…” You think you can accomplish both things simultaneously.
>>4439224Yu Yan turned the TV on and amped the volume for you to listen from the kitchen, it’s early morning, so you didn’t think it was necessary. As you step inside the kitchen, you feel Nariko waking up, you have no evidence of this happening, but you’re sure of it. And lo and behold, Nariko woke up, guided by the aroma of your food. After saying hi to you, she joined Yu Yan on the couch to watch the news. Yu Yan informed Nariko about your feats from yesterday in a more condensed manner as the show was unfolding:-So the Cult’s downfall is as all over the news as you were hoping. The whole nation is in shock! The villainous acts of the cult were brought to light! Murder, robbery, bribery, human trafficking and tax evasion. You wonder why there is always tax evasion. More than 200 people were arrested from all these heinous acts! This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as news is concerned.-The Leader of the “Cult of Chernobog”, Bernardo Ammirati, was taken into police custody. The reporters were able to get some words out of him: “Of course, I did it!” Bernardo Ammirati said between his laughter. “Kudos to the people who brought me down! And for those who are still in the game, don’t think you’re untouchable. There is someone out there coming for you.” When asked to clarify, Ammirati refused to talk any further.-The Director of Public Prosecutions said “There is more than enough evidence to prosecute everyone involved and it would be a catastrophic failure of the judicial system if we don’t get these people in jail.”-Like Richard predicted, The N.U. is taking this news in stride and claiming all the credit for this catch. But Interim Police Captain from Pokyo Lokyo West District, Judith Leitgeb said “We can hardly take any credit for these arrests. The Public servants’ work in this city is quite remarkable. We will provide the Prosecution office all the help they need.” Her voice sounds strangely familiar to you, weird. And Richard’s name wasn’t mentioned, which was pretty eyebrow raising for you.-Members of the Morning TV show “Good Morning, Lokyo!” said that they are in shock by the news of the now ex-member of the panel Bernardo Ammirati’s involvement and told the news they never saw it coming. A cameraman called them idiots. He was fired.-President Lazarus Don Gordon Jr. sent an executive order to turn Bernardo Ammirati’s case into a Public Trial on National TV. A presidential request that hasn’t been seen since his father’s regime. Nobody is sure as to why. The trial will be shown tonight. The trials usually don’t last more than a couple of days… Lawyers are too overworked in this country.-Some interviews with random ass people to know their opinions about what happened… how boring!
>>4439226-As a little side note, Elicarto Lloydington’s great speech soured the public opinion on him considerably. The survey informed that the people thought it was “too confrontational” and “unnecessary”, reminding people of the darkest times when Gordon Sr. was in charge. In fact, people didn’t see much of a difference to what “The Hosts of Rebellion” were known for.-Back to the cult, there are some individuals that are tied to this scandal that haven't been captured. You recognize among them the name “Valdemar Bruun.” Not even a clue about Foroutan though… Is that even his real name?-Beatrice von Riegel denies any tie with the Cult as well. She says there is a conspiracy against her because she and Ammirati never met. The news shows pictures of them together in different locations. Von Riegel didn’t make any more comments and she’s currently being investigated as well.The news keeps raging on…Yu Yan looks all hype by listening to the news for the first time in her life, Nariko is still trying to grasp what’s going on in general. You’re close to completing your dish, but you feel your phone vibrating, you got messages from lots of people! All of them have to do with the cult…What do you do?>Eat breakfast with Yu Yan and Nariko, the others don’t know you’re awake yet.>Check on your phone for the messages. Seriously, it’s just 8:40! Who’s awake at this hour on a Sunday?!>Write In.(Last Reply of the day, we continue tomorrow.)

>>4439227>Check on your phone for the messages. Seriously, it’s just 8:40! Who’s awake at this hour on a Sunday?!I love this quest
>>4438577Finally, been waiting for this.
>>4439224....that vote didn't win though.
>>4438765Excellent guy right here.
>>4439227>Eat breakfast with Yu Yan and Nariko, the others don’t know you’re awake yet.Peaceful morning is go.
>>4439227>Eat breakfast with Yu Yan and Nariko, the others don’t know you’re awake yet.
>>4439227>Check on your phone for the messages. Seriously, it’s just 8:40! Who’s awake at this hour on a Sunday?!Might be urgent
>>4439227>Check on your phone for the messages. Seriously, it’s just 8:40! Who’s awake at this hour on a Sunday?!
>>4439227>Check on your phone for the messages. Seriously, it’s just 8:40! Who’s awake at this hour on a Sunday?!Wait for Ruby to wake up before eating breakfast
Well, if people are sending you a bunch of messages at this hour on a Sunday, it must be for good reasons, right? You’re going to check what they have to say, even if breakfast is relatively close to being done:-First, Scarlet tells you to check the news when you wake up, because the important happenings are unfolding! Silly Bubbles, you’re already awake! Still, she’s really excited about what you all accomplished together. It was all worth it in her words.-Second, Nina assumes everything related to the cult is your doing, and asks you to call her when you wake up. She mentions being completely taken by surprise by the pleasant news, she didn’t think you were ready to accomplish this much in so little time! She’s just wowed!-Third, Richard informs you that all the procedures with the data were a success and the police will take over from this point onwards, so that’s good. Yet, he reveals that there are some holes in the information, some key players missing and it’s out of his hands where the investigation might lead them to. Vivienne and Carol probably didn’t do a great job covering their bases, maybe you should tell them about it. Since he doesn’t address you directly, you think he sent this same message to each member who helped yesterday.-Fourth, Emily sends you a cute little message saying hi and everything. Now you have her number! She tells you that she got the tickets for Carol’s concert by contacting her. Also, she mentions the big news, and how the police came over a few minutes ago to interrogate her about what happened, she feels hopeful about justice being had.-Fifth, Holly sends you a short message thanking you for your super spy efforts. She believes you’re more than incredible! Huh, that’s one way to put it.-Sixth, B-WORM sends you another short and sweet message: We did it.-Seventh, Aurora tells you she read the newspaper ‘The Lokyo Observer’, the one Genesis works in, and thinks what you all did may have big repercussions! Did… she not watch the news? Like on TV? You’re confused. She reminds you about her reward again as well, something to look forward to, you guess.-Eighth, Matilda requires your help for something Flame Related. Wait, there is more! She asks you if you’re involved in the cult happenings. So she noticed! Wait, you didn’t tell her a thing, how does she know…?-Ninth, One little line from Henry: So that’s how it is. A little passive aggressive for your standards…-Tenth, Roger Jackson sends you a text, giving you some insider information about the cult news, since he believes it’s flame related. It’s more or less about how the Police found out and how Richard handled it. Pretty close to what you already know.-Eleventh, Dr. Calamity sends you his regards! He thinks you made a massive hit. The Police came to ask some questions at the Clinic since it was involved with this whole case. He didn’t say much because he didn’t know much! So you have nothing to worry about.
>>4440375-Twelfth, Ka-Shing assures you that he has nothing to do with this! It was all a coincidence! He’s a man of peace! He might be referring to the talk you had yesterday about doing something to Carol…-Thirteenth, Xavi tells you that the van is fixed. That’s all. Maybe he hasn’t watched the news? Poor guy, he’s going to get a massive surprise. Why did you say poor guy? This is great news!That’s a lot of messages…! Hell, you imagine a couple more coming your way in a couple of hours when everyone is really awake. Like one from Giorsal. Where is that cloud head? Maybe you should send a message...Breakfast is ready.What do you do?>Call all team members, today you party!>Call Nina, she wants to talk to you, might as well do it.>Call Henry, you want to know what’s up with the passive aggressive message.>Call Roger Jackson, you want to know more about the Public Trial, and why it is happening now. Something is fishy about it.>Call Matilda, ask her what’s going on and what does she need.>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.>Write In.
>>4440378>>Call all team members, today you party!
>>4440378>>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.
>>4440378>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.Food first.
>>4440378>Call everyone or text them what we did, and to meet up if they want more info.>Let them know after breakfast though.
>>4440378>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.
>>4438577grats on triple digits you big nerds
>>4440378>Remove Henry as a contact>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.
>>4440378>Call all team members, today you party!
>>4440451Why you wanna do Henry like that?
>>4440470To be fair, it is kinda funny
>>4440378>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.We'll party after breakfast.
>>4440470Its funny & that boy came in here disrespectful
>>4440378>Just go eat some breakfast. You’re going to deal with this later.Wake Ruby up first tho
Well nobody expects you to be awake now, so you’re going to eat breakfast! You’ll have plenty of time to properly respond to them when the time comes. You take the plates out and bring the food with you; you have an extra portion for Ruby when she wakes up, you don’t want to wake her up because it’s her free day, she needs her rest!You are all on the couch, sitting in the middle between Yu Yan and Nariko, who are still wearing your shirts as pajamas, with the trays on each one’s laps. Nariko is already elegantly stuffing her face with your meal, sounds like an oxymoron but it’s true! She moves so fast…“Thank goodness you wanted to ask Johnny about what’s going on…” Yu Yan sarcastically points out to Nariko.“Apologies, but I can’t allow this wonderful meal to go cold.” Nariko gives herself a breathing moment to explain.“I couldn’t answer her anyway, I’m hungry as well.” You had a lot of exercises of different kinds yesterday… So you are a lil’ bit hungry now! You begin eating as well.“I mean, it does smell nice…” Your smug picky eater starts digging into the food as well.You spend a couple of minutes silently eating together in a homely atmosphere with the girls as you continue watching the news, no new developments so far. This situation makes you feel nostalgic about something that was still common weeks ago in this apartment, how weird.“What a delightful way to start this day.” Nariko exclaims as she finishes.“Not asking for seconds?” You raise an eyebrow.“Not this time around, I’m the utmost curious about what happened.” Nariko has some self-restraint. That’s great! Even better because you didn’t prepare extra!“After yesterday, I expected to act all flustered in front of Johnny, but look at you now! I’m proud!” Yu Yan is pleasantly surprised.“There is no reason for me to be ashamed, dear Johnny has accepted me for who I am.” Nariko softly smiles.“But I always have.” You aren’t sure where this came from.“I-I’m used to confusing politeness with insincerity, it’s ingrained in my mind…” Nariko responds.“She’s calling a two-faced liar, Johnny. How can you let that slide?” Yu Yan jokes.“I am not! Don’t misconstrue my words, Yu Yan!” Nariko gets a little flustered by this attack. “I merely understood him better after the activities we performed together yesterday! I realize Dear Johnny is like any mortal, not too dissimilar to me. Almost like equals!” Nariko nods to herself.“There is a backhanded compliment somewhere in what you’re saying...” Yu Yan is taking the piss.
>>4440688“There is none! We both are victims of our own desires! Johnny is a man, and I’m a woman – and he sees me as one. I saw his lust, his desires, his frustrations… And if you allow me to be serious for a moment, I feel like I finally took him off of that proverbial pedestal, and I see him for who he is. I prefer it this way, we couldn’t live to those expectations, I couldn’t be woman enough for him and he couldn’t live up to my fantasy. And I quite like it, I like being able to look him in the eyes and tell him I care about him…” Nariko is smiling at you.“Woah, you realized all that by being naked? Maybe next time you take a shower you’ll find the cure for cancer.” Yu Yan makes fun of your OG Hobo. Well, you did have a fruitful conversation with Yu Yan during a shower all naked once...“Y-You don’t understand! It’s not that simple!” Nariko gets taken aback.“It’s still weird. Maybe you can start making fun of this stuff every once in a while.” Yu Yan shrugs as she drinks more orange juice.“I royally fuck up too much for you to put me on a pedestal anyway.” You comment, half chuckling.“I couldn’t help it… You’ve done so much for me, Dear Johnny.” Nariko gets embarrassed. “I was willingly blind to your flaws, like faith itself wanted to drag you down.”“Good thing you felt that way with Johnny and not someone else. You don’t know who could’ve taken advantage of you.” Yu Yan smirks.“Indeed.” You nod in agreement.“Pardon me, could you explain?” Nariko is interested in this topic.“How can you realize that you’re in danger if you ignore all the red flags?” You explain to the rich girl. You wonder if this has something to do with what Amelia did to her at one point.“...that already happened.” Nariko admits, full of shame. “My flame, Yodichaela, she…” Nariko shakes her head. “I-It’s nothing.”“You can’t just do that! Spit it out, you cow!” Yu Yan gets a little blunt here.“Perhaps at another opportunity.” Nariko hasn’t told you her backstory at any point. “Right now, I only want to have a pleasant day with you all.”“And I thought Johnny was a big tease… I’ll let you off the hook for now, just because the news seems to be spicing up again!” Yu Yan points forwards.What do you do?>Ask Nariko to speak up, you wanna hear it.>Tell Nariko that the moment she feels like speaking up, to call you both immediately. And watch the news.>Ask Nariko what she wanted to ask you.>Maybe you could make some calls now…>Write In.

>>4440690>Ask Nariko to speak up, you wanna hear it.
>>4440725You did first
>>4440731Uh, no I didn't
>>4440690>Tell Nariko that the moment she feels like speaking up, to call you both immediately. And watch the news.
“Nariko, whenever you feel like you’re ready to tell us, please call us immediately. I really want to know and help you out.” You want to support Nariko through her problems!“Yeah, we’re friends after all. Like, I’m not actually joking here.” Yu Yan wiggles her eyebrows anyway like it’s a joke.“I’ll take you up on that offer soon.” Nariko looks really happy, and not the horny kind of happy!“Also, what did you want to ask me?” You remember her saying something earlier in the conversation.“Yes, I want you to clarify some fuzzy details from your amazing feat!” Nariko appears to be extremely curious about this.“Yeah, but keep it down, I wanna hear what these guys have to say about this mess.” Yu Yan seems to greatly enjoy the chaos you provoked. You can tell it’s because she loves the idea that you were responsible for all of this happening.Nariko’s questions just lead you to more or less retelling the whole adventure from beginning to end, Yu Yan skimmed over a lot of details, so you didn’t fill the gaps, and you went beyond all that! It feels strange to talk about people you know very well to other people you also know very well, at some point you feel like they should’ve met each other, but they haven’t! At least Nariko knows Scarlet from that weird date you had, so you don’t have to spend extra time to explain why she ended up being named Bubbles!Nariko was putting all her attention on you and got all what you were saying pretty quickly, hell, she remembered everyone’s names after your first time saying them. You can tell why she’s an honor student!As you were retelling your amazing tale of being invisible and walking around corridors, the news shows the new happenings in regards to the Cult:-Bernardo Ammirati has decided to be his own lawyer for the infamous Public Trial for tonight against all common sense. The news says only 0.002% of people who use this strategy get anything close to a favorable verdict.-President Don Gordon Jr. will attend the public trial in person! He’s not going to directly influence the proceedings, but the news made it obvious he’s pressuring for a guilty verdict to come out. N.U. Forces have declared they will follow Prancijanian law but they find the extra pressure unnecessary.
>>4440864-Presidential candidate Elicarto Lloydington was interviewed in regards to Gordon attending the trial and he said: “President Gordon Jr. showing off once again the ugliest part of our so poorly called ‘democracy’; just like his father, he’s infringing upon the divisions of state powers by pressuring our judicial system with his presence. He wants to gain the goodwill of the people by appearing to be directly responsible for bringing this reprehensible criminal in jail despite our DPP saying there is more than enough evidence for him to be convicted. Populism in its purest form.”When questioned on his appearance with NU armed forces on TV during his grand speech as another ugly reminder of tactics of old from Gordon Sr. (someone who loved appearing with his military forces during speeches) Lloydington made a snarky but unwitty remark before leaving in a hurry. Everyone thought it was lame.-The total numbers of arrests have skyrocketed to another 450 people related to this cult debacle only in Pokyo Lokyo. There are other bases being investigated all around Prancijan, the number of possible suspects could rise up to over 1000 in the next few hours. New victims and new cases seem to appear by the minute as more evidence is coming to light!“Holy shit.” Yu Yan is really in awe. “Damn Johnny, you changed the whole country!”“Huh… I really didn’t expect the rabbit hole to be this deep.” You’re honest with yourself, this is way more than you originally expected. “And this is only scratching the surface!” Yu Yan points at the TV… and on screen it says as she just said. “Hey, I said that!” Yu Yan feels like they stole her line.“How do you feel about this, dear Johnny?” Nariko is curious about your own reaction.“Good morning everyone.” A very tired looking Ruby emerges before you can respond to Nariko, and unlike the other girls, she’s wearing proper clothing like nothing happened yesterday. “What’s going on?” Ruby covers her mouth before yawning.“The country is falling apart!” Yu Yan exaggerates. “Also, breakfast is ready.”“Wonderful.” Ruby smiles like Yu Yan said something beautiful, she begins walking towards the kitchen, almost absentmindedly, then she stops. “Pardon me, w-what did you just say?”“Go for a plate and look at the TV. Big news, and we’ll be fine.” You answer instead.“Very well, I’m certainly hungry.” Ruby casually walks away.“Meow.” Bradford Jr. is as well. You just feed him though…“So, ready to tell your story for a third time?” Yu Yan raises an eyebrow.

“I need to make some calls first though.” You say as you check out your phone once again.“I’ll bring Ruby up to speed then.” Yu Yan has your back. “Ruby, you’re not going to believe what happened!” Yu Yan makes her way to the dinner table as Ruby brings her plate with the food you made.“Dear Johnny, I’m going to clean up the dishes then.” Nariko starts hoarding the trays to bring them to the kitchen.“Thanks.” You stand up and make your way to your room for some privacy, the girls tend to be a little too noisy for you to have a chat in peace.After watching the news, you think there is no better time to celebrate than today! You’ll make the party happen tonight! You make a group chat with everyone in it, and let them know that tonight at 8:00 PM you want this party to happen! You’re planning on going to get them in the van again, so you can decide later where to go.But not before asking Emily if she wanted to be included, she declined because she’s busy reconnecting with her family and won’t be available for a while. But told you not to worry about the date! She’s not going to miss it for anything in the world.In the chat, the responses start flocking in! Scarlet, Xavi, Giorsal and Aurora accept with no issues, Richard begrudgingly accepts going as well. B-WORM will go as well, but clarifies that Genesis won’t be able to attend because she woke up ‘sick’, it appears those two ended up drinking a lot yesterday. You ask privately to Xavi if he can drive again, and he has no issues with it. The group chat’s conversation turns to the news that you’re directly responsible for…With that already set up, it’s time to make another important call to the leader of the Motley Crew! Judging by her earlier message, she’s eager to talk and in a good mood, so you just need to inform her about what happened and whatnot. You dial Nina’s number…“Johnny! I’m glad you called.” Nina sounds relieved.“Hey there, I saw that you wanted us to talk.” You try to sound casual.“Yes, there is so much we need to discuss!” Nina calmed down. “I assume everything in the news is thanks to you, right? Or is it a coincidence? Scarlet called me before your mission as she promised and, from what I heard from the clinic, I’m sure you’re involved, but I wanted to make sure how much you did.”“Yeah, it wasn’t planned to be this big, but we took our chances and we came out on top.” You hearing everyone being so excited about it makes you realize how big this is.“Do you mind going into details first?” Nina sounds very interested.“All right, I’ll start from the beginning after our little date.” You’re wiggling your eyebrows, even if she can’t see it.“I’m assuming you’re moving your eyebrows, please continue.” This refined lady knows you very well…
>>4442003In a more condensed fashion than with Nariko, you explained to Nina every single thing you did yesterday after leaving her apartment. Well, ignoring the Drawtionary portion of the day.“You might’ve heard this from everyone else at this point, but Johnny, what you accomplished is truly incredible! I wish I could be there to see it!” Nina congratulates you on your efforts. “With this information, I’ll be able to make sure nobody can track you down, and knowing Richard was involved, I’ll ask for more details from him. Oh, and I’ll keep tabs on Vivienne Neuville and Carol Sung with the cats.”“I don’t know, I think they have more to lose than me if I somehow get found out.” You don’t think spying on them is necessary.“A little precaution won’t hurt anybody, don’t you think?” Nina is just taking the necessary precautions. If you didn’t know better, you would think she’s acting paranoid, but Nina doesn’t know these people! “Well, on the topic of precaution! I obtained a new flame again! Remember what I said about getting Kaz’s flame two days ago? Well, I have it now!”“I-Isn’t that a little premature?” You are out of words.“Says the man who took the whole cult down in one day because he saw his chance…” Nina is calling you out. “I believe I needed to act a little bold. Also, it helped that Susie was unconscious to talk me out of it.”“How are you feeling?”“It’s completely different, this flame isn’t sentient anymore. Constance told me she was never able to speak to it, but I like it so much more this way.” Nina is probably winking. “I wouldn’t have accepted otherwise after all we went through.”“What a mess that was…” You don’t even want to talk about Icioba at this point in your life…“Either way, we still have our cat intel network operating, so please, if you need any information for your next move, we’re ready to help.” Nina offers her services. “Two minor things as well, before I forget to mention, I’ve heard from Oliver that Matilda is hosting a flame user in her dojo, I’ll be checking on them today.”“A flame user?” You want to know a little more.“It seems the host, the human counterpart, willingly gave control of her body to this entity. I wish I could tell you more, but that’s all I know.” Nina reveals.“That’s unusual.” You make the understatement of the day.“I’ll see what this is all about, but I know Ms. Spice would be much more comfortable if you helped her deal with this as well.” Your teacher says. “And that’s not the only issue I have to deal with, Henry doesn’t want to hear from us anymore, I scheduled a meeting with him today as well to have a chat, but he’s pissed about something.”“I’ll see what I can do to help, but after yesterday I think I’ll need to take it easy today.”
>>4442005“Oh yes, I just wanted to inform you about what’s happening on our end! I did incite to help Matilda out, but you don’t need to do it right now, it was inconsiderate on my part, I apologize.” Nina reflects on her words.“Don’t say that.” It wasn’t a big deal anyway. “I’ll see if there is something I can do, but you know, I’m taking it easy.”“Thank you, Johnny. But disregard everything I said, I’ll deal with everything myself, don’t you worry!” Nina sounds optimistic about her future efforts.“I’ll be glad to help if I have the time, you can rely on me.” You don’t need a break that badly, right? Besides, it’s difficult enough for Nina to ask for any help, so you might as well reward her for trying.“Johnny, you don’t have to.” Nina is going back to her usual self.“Nina...” You reply in a stern tone.“I-I’ll let you go now, your help will be much appreciated! I have a long day ahead of myself, if you need to talk, call me!” Nina hurries to say good-bye.“Bye, bye.” You wave like an idiot.“Take care, Johnny. You did amazing yesterday.” Nina congratulates you once again.“And the day before too.” You make your eyebrows dance.“O-Oh shut up.” Nina coyly hangs up the phone.…Fuck.What do you do now?>Deal with Henry until it’s party time!>Deal with Matilda until it’s party time!>Laze around like a sloth in your apartment until the party!

Well, you told Nina that you’re going to take this day off, so might as well! Overworking yourself could end up resulting in worse things for yourself and the people you want to help, that’s something you’ve learned over the past couple of months. You put your phone back into your pocket and come back to the living room.“How’d the calls go?” Yu Yan is still on the couch watching the recent events. Nariko and Ruby are busy talking to each other at the table, with the two clean plates in front of them both… Wasn’t Yu Yan the one who was going to explain to Ruby what happened?“It went very well, I’m gonna get busy way later tonight though.” You respond to Yu Yan’s inquiry.“You’re always so busy! Let’s relax until then. C’mere big boy, let us enjoy the highly entertaining chaos of a crime organization collapsing from the comfort of this couch.” Yu Yan invites you to sit beside her. You accept the invitation.“J-Johnny, is what Yu Yan and Nariko told me true? Are you really the cause of all of this happening?” Ruby seems to have finished listening to your somewhat overrated adventure.“Kinda, yeah, I wasn’t the only one who helped.” You don’t really want to worry her more than necessary.“A-Are you hurt?!” Ruby gets close to you extremely quickly.“You saw him naked yesterday and he didn’t have even a scratch.” Yu Yan casually defuses the situation.“Naked…?” Ruby doesn’t remember that.“I-I meant almost naked, haha…” Yu Yan nervously looks away.“It’s unusual for you to clarify a joke like that.” Nariko is suspicious.“N-Nah, I had a little lapse. I was thinking about the shameful spectacle Firm Buttocks offered to Johnny… The one she did willingly.” Yu Yan deviates the attention towards Ruby as she goes back to acting all smug. “Imagine what that did to Johnny’s mind when I’m having problems forgetting about it!” Yu Yan is not wrong, yesterday will be forever ingrained into your brain.“I only did what I thought was right…” Ruby blushes. Yu Yan successfully changed topics.“That’s one weird way to say you were horny, Ruby.” Yu Yan cackles.“C-Could we talk about something else…? This will remain a complete secret among us, right?” Ruby is getting all red, just like yesterday.“Yeah, that goes without saying.” You promise. Nariko agrees as well.“You wanna talk about something else? That’s weird, you looked so cheated when you thought you missed this stud being naked.” Yu Yan won’t let it go. “Okay, you’re getting embarrassed for real, sorry! But yeah, something like that is never going to happen again. That’s a once in a lifetime show.”“Unless?” You raise an eyebrow.“…” Yu Yan glares at you and raises an eyebrow.“It’s a joke, I thought you liked jokes, you’ve changed, Yu.” You play dumb.“Dear Johnny is so flippant...” Nariko calls you out.
>>4442167“A-Anyone here wants some healthy snacks?” Ruby wants to desperately change topics. You raise your hand for the offer. The redhead smiles and stands up…Then someone knocks on the door a little loudly, Ruby decides to open the door herself instead of going for your snacks…“Oh, it’s you! Amelia, was it?” Ruby welcomes your little sister.“Johnny! Where is Johnny?!” Amelia makes her way inside in a hurry until she stops dead in her tracks once she sees you. “You’re… fine?” Amelia says in disbelief.“Yeah, what’s wrong?” You casually wonder.“I-I t-thought, the news…” Amelia is perplexed.“I helped with that, but I’m fine.” You give your beary worried sister a thumbs up.“Oh…” Amelia chills. “Hehe, sorry… Wait a moment, what are you two doing here?” Amelia realizes that Nariko and Yu Yan are here. “And why are you wearing Johnny’s clothes?!”“Amelia, I texted you yesterday that we were going to stay here for the night…” Nariko replies, dumbfounded.“We didn’t have pajamas with us, so this is the best we had.” Yu Yan shows off your T-shirt.“O-Oh…” Amelia calms down again. “Wait! Whose turn to clean up the apartment is it?! You need to do it immediately! We agreed that we would do it every Sunday morning!” Amelia just wants to be grumpy this morning, huh?“Can it wait?” Ruby politely wonders.“No! It can’t! One of you needs to come with me!” Amelia roars. Who the hell does she think she is to give orders like that! “Please!” Okay, now that’s not too bad.Looking at both Nariko and Yu Yan, you can tell neither of the two knows who’s turn it really is…What do you do?>Tell your little sister to get bent.>Tell her that you’re going to do it.>Sacrifice Nariko.>Sacrifice Yu Yan.>Sacrifice Ruby…?>Write In.

You decide to tame the wild bear, you approach the little beast and start patting her head. “Calm down, Amelia.” You don’t remember Amelia’s hair being this puffy before. “Cleaning can wait another day, let’s enjoy the day together.”“Hehehe… NO! We were doing so good following the schedule! I don’t wanna break the habit…” Amelia complains as she receives the headpats without issue.“Don’t tell me you don’t want to hear what I did and how I ended up all fine?” You offer her something she probably wants.“Sit on the couch, Ame.” Yu Yan invites her to your comfy kingdom.“I’ll prepare you a warm glass of milk like you love.” Nariko starts walking towards the kitchen, joining in your efforts to calm the bear.“Perhaps we can take that grumpiness away with some delicious healthy snacks. You seem hungry as well.” Ruby follows Nariko to the kitchen.“C’mon…” You start carrying Amelia, she barely struggled, the headpats are way too effective! She’s heavier than you remember. “I’ll carry you to the couch.”“Noo…” Amelia meekly responds.“Here, I have a blanket ready for you to roll in.” Yu Yan puts it on the spot designated for your sister. “I know how much you love being tucked in like a burrito.” You put her in there, and Yu Yan tenderly traps your sister in it. You continue to pat her head with Yu Yan’s help now.“B-But the apartment…” Amelia complains one last time.“We’ll deal with that later, don’t worry.” You say.“Yeah, Ame, enjoy your headpats.” Yu Yan smiles.“And your milk.” Nariko appears with the beverage.“And these wonderful snacks I’ve prepared!” Ruby brings a big tray with healthy food.“O.K., I will… hehehe…” Ame has a stupidly bubbly smile on her face. Your sister’s will is weak.“What an adorable little sister you have, Johnny.” Ruby says now that she’s spent some short but quality time with the bear. You’re glad Ruby is comfortable with this situation.And so, shortly after you explain to Amelia what happened during the last days, omitting more personal details. You feel like this is the 4th time you’ve done this just during this morning, that already went by flying, it’s 12:09 PM! In just a little while you’re going to need to make lunch.Well that usually happens when you’re having a good time…For whom do you specially want to prepare lunch for?>Ruby.>Amelia.>Nariko.>Yu Yan.>Yourself.What do you want to do after lunch?>Watch the news and wait for the Trial to finally begin!>Just let time flow by and relax.

With the explanation over, you announce to the girls that you’re going to start making lunch. Yu Yan and Nariko (mainly Nariko) decide it’s a good time to go back to their apartment for a brief moment to change their clothes. Ruby is the one designated to take care of the ‘Bearrito’ while they are gone, your roommate takes the opportunity to comb your little sister’s hair and make her less of an embarrassing mess. Ruby wanted to help you, but you prefer it if she keeps pampering Amelia.Since you don’t want to cause the uproar of your little sister, you’re going to prepare one of her favorite dishes: Tteokbokki! Amelia likes her spicy food, you’re not much of a fan though, probably her disgusting Tomah genes in play. It’s a great thing Ruby bought some groceries yesterday so you have the ingredients! Now, time to search online how to do it… Yeah, you’re going to make it less spicy than what the recipe says.While cooking, you check on Amelia and Ruby to see how they are doing, and they are having a friendly chat together; they met a couple of times before today so you were curious if they were going to awkwardly stay quiet or not, and they didn’t, so that’s good in your book!Nariko and Yu Yan are back just moments before your promising looking lunch is ready! You ask them to help you set the table for everyone. With every plate ready and everyone in place it’s time for everyone to dig in!“I didn’t know you can make dad’s dish!” Amelia seems happy to dig in. Oh right, your stepfather made this crap.“I-It’s spicy!” Nariko reacts immediately, she’s not a fan. “B-But it’s so good!” She can’t get enough of it though!“Yeah, it’s pretty damn good.” Yu Yan enthusiastically eats it in a way you’ve never seen before except with Pizza. She’s a fan of spicy food too! You’ve learned something new.“M-M-Mi-Milk…!” Nariko ate way too fast and escaped for some cow-related beverage.“Could you please serve me a glass as well?” Ruby is not struggling to eat it but knows very well that could turn around.“You don’t like spicy food?” You feel guilty for not asking if it was a good idea to cook it or not.“I do! I did buy the ingredients, didn’t I?” Ruby is enjoying herself. So it’s only Nariko in peril here. “You don’t seem eager to continue eating as well.”“Eh, if I eat too fast I’ll die.” You admit you’re only good dealing with one type of Spice, and she’s not here today.“Nom, nom, nom, nom.” Amelia munches loudly. Where are her manners? You leave her on her own means for a couple of weeks and she’s already a disaster.With lunch nearly done, you think it’s an appropriate time to have a chat with the girls… But what should you talk about? You don’t want to get too distracted and miss the trial.

“So what have you been up to lately, dear sister?” You wonder.“Not much, I’ve been studying, helping some cats and realizing I’ve been my school’s delinquent gang leader for months.” Amelia struggles to remember.“…What?” You don’t know if she’s joking, it doesn’t sound like it, but it should!“Y’know, like the stuff Henry was doing.” Amelia clarifies.“Ame, how is that even possible?” Yu Yan is as confused as you are.“I don’t know, I just found out about it yesterday.” Amelia doesn’t seem troubled. “I’m thinking of resigning tomorrow.”“You just became their leader overnight or what?” You want an explanation.“Yeah, just like how you took down the cult overnight!” Amelia has a point.“So let me understand, you’re a delinquent?” Ruby is still perplexed.“No, all I’ve done is study in the library! The goddess of knowledge says I have a potato for a brain and I need to develop it. I got third in the whole school last exams, but it isn’t enough for her yet.” The Bearrito drinks some of her milk.“Have you tried asking anyone how you became their leader?” Yu Yan won’t let this go.“Huuh… I don’t even know who my minions are.” Amelia is realizing this might be bigger than she thought.“You’re already calling them minions…?” Yu Yan is not impressed.“Befitting title for people who aren’t brave enough to talk to her.” Nariko doesn’t see the big problem here.“Are you sure this is the case?” Ruby is right, Amelia has no way of knowing if everything she’s saying is true.“Yes…?” Amelia doesn’t know what to say.“That sounds more like a no.” Yu Yan raises an eyebrow in skepticism.“A girl challenged me to a duel for the control of the team! She said I was the leader! She didn’t take no for an answer!” Amelia explains.“It’s not a team, it’s a gang.” Nariko corrects.“You fought a girl?” Ruby is really concerned now.“No, but I won! I tried to run away and she ended up knocking herself on a bunch of lockers after she tripped.” Amelia’s story sounds familiar, you don’t know why.“Lucky you...” Yu Yan shakes her head.“How are you planning to resign if you don’t know who to talk to?” Ruby doesn’t get the logic.“I’ll leave a letter on the school’s billboard with my resignation! That’ll surely work. I have to concentrate on my studies” Amelia seems confident.“Would that really work…?” Ruby is concerned.“I believe it’s a good strategy.” Nariko is as dumb as your sister.This certainly sounds like something made up, so it probably happened…

“Huh, Amelia, remember Aurora? The girl I talked about earlier?” One of the most interesting parts of yesterday, if you say so yourself.“That’s the weird kid’s sister, right?” Not even Amelia can remember that rat kid’s name.“Yeah, the same one. She goes to your school and she’s more in tune with what’s happening there, maybe she could help you deal with this. I can give you her information.” You propose a sensible plan.“S-Sure…” Amelia already feels the anxiety of meeting a new person.“I’ll send her a heads up.” You text Aurora about your idea. She agrees to talk with Amelia! She’s so kind! though, she did respond a little too fast… “There, she will be ready when you need her.”“O.K., I’ll text her right now.” Amelia isn’t so sure about this but she will give it a go. You can hear her fingers moving on her phone inside her bearrito shell.“Tell us how it goes.” Yu Yan wants to see the next chapter in this saga.“This ended a little anticlimactically for my taste.” Nariko wanted more, the unsatisfied cow demands more drama.“Just wait and see. This is not one of your drama series with the whole season posted at once, Nariko.” Yu Yan shrugs.“Let’s clean up, we have been done with our food for a while now.” Ruby is taking the plates to the kitchen sink.“T-There is no dessert?” Nariko wants more…Yeah, you didn’t make dessert, you apologize mentally to the overfed rich girl and ignore her inquiry completely.Ruby and Nariko are washing the dishes together; you, Yu Yan and the Bearrito are all watching TV on the couch now. Yu Yan has been treating Amelia like her lapdog, her head on her thighs as she caresses her head while absentmindedly watching the screen, you have Amelia’s torso on your legs.Eventually the wealthy girls come back and join you on the couch, Nariko on your right, Yu Yan on your left, and Ruby on Yu Yan’s left, and Amelia lying on everyone's legs, starting from Yu to Nariko, leaving Ruby free in case you need something. You’re a little cramped, but you’re making it work.You have an amusing conversation between everyone for a little while, talking about nothing really important, mostly just making fun of everyone; you can tell the girls are having a good time, Ruby doesn’t feel isolated, Amelia is smiling as her old bubbly self, Yu Yan being smug as always and now Nariko has been able to laugh at herself a little. What a wonderful time. Then you realize the Public Trial is close to starting, just in 20 minutes more!“Let’s watch a movie!” But your sister has other plans.“I would love to!” Nariko is on board.“Eh, I wanna watch the trial, it’s going to be important.” Yu Yan wants to watch the once in a lifetime event.“Meh, someone is going to make a summary online.” Amelia doesn’t want to. “I’m tired of being all stressed out!”
>>4443264“Personally, I would prefer if we watched it.” Ruby is serious about this, you don’t know why.“Your call, stud.” Yu Yan nudges you.What do you do?>Relax until the party!>Watch the Trial!>Write In.

>>4443266>Watch the Trial!TIME FOR A COMEDY!
“I wanna watch the trial, if something important happens I might get 40 calls and I prefer to be ready.” You tell them why you’re making this decision.“I know, I know…” Amelia knows the trial is more important.“Don’t look so down, I bet we’ll watch some actual good drama there, better than whatever shitty movie Nariko would pick.” Yu Yan tries to hype this up.“I-I don’t want to watch another romance movie.” Amelia is tired of Nariko’s taste in movies.“You’re more interested than I originally thought about this, Yu Yan.” Ruby smiles.“I can say the same thing about you, redhead.” Yu Yan finds it peculiar as well.“Johnny needs to watch this, I’m not well-versed in politics.” Ruby says in an ominous way.“Why do you say that…?” Amelia gets a little worried.“From what I understand, Johnny is putting his life in danger to stop this game, it will be better for him if he paid attention to what’s happening, for his own safety.” Ruby explains.“We’re all involved...” Amelia wants to leave this reality.“I wasn’t sure about that, I think it’s important for you to listen as well then.” Ruby smiles at your sister.“Well, the pre-show is on the way.” Yu Yan points forwards to the screen. You 5 are all watching attentively to what’s on display.
>>4443403The state of Prancijan against The leader of the Cult of Chernobog, Bernardo Ammirati.There is a reporter lady and a lawyer from the Pokyo Lokyo University, he is the dean of the law department. After introducing themselves, they get directly into the meat of the issue and start talking about the cases.“You said in your interview this morning that this trial is a mere formality and that the fact Ammirati is going to defend himself is another indication of this. Could you explain further?” The anchor asks.“Like I said before, I was one of the lawyers consulted by the Prosecution Office to prepare the groundwork for this case, I oversaw it, and the evidence is not only overwhelming, it’s also damning – in other words, there is absolutely nothing the defendant could do to escape from this.” The Lawyer responds.“But how does Ammirati defending himself correlate with what you’re saying?”“The individual Ammirati is in his right to defend himself even if at first glance he has no court knowledge or experience. But what can he do? What can any lawyer do? To my knowledge, there are over 1000 solid cases against him, if he fights every single one individually he still won’t get a verdict that is lower than a life sentence. And, you know, one of the most interesting aspects of a Public Trial is that it’s one date, you only have one day to have the case wrapped up. Ammirati knows he’s underqualified, has no time, and all the evidence against him. He’s basically throwing the towel.”“But why would someone put themselves into that position? Wouldn’t any lawyer be better than having essentially no lawyer?”“It does make the trial shorter if you don’t have anything to say.” The man chuckles. “The other option, in my opinion, is for showmanship, I don’t watch much TV myself, but he was a known celebrity even before he was outed as the leader of this cult, correct?”“He wasn’t outed, he revealed himself, and the cult was known for having shady businesses going on before and after he showed up as their leader.”“Point is, maybe he expects to give us one last show!”“But he’s not known for being a showman, he has no artistic abilities to my knowledge.” The interviewer is being too serious for a joke.“Well, in a few minutes he’s going to pretend to be a lawyer, let’s see how that goes!”“It seems we’re ready for our actual coverage of the trail itself, the eyes of the whole country and maybe the world are going to be on this. We hope today that justice is going to be imparted.”Who is going to be the prosecutor?!>Someone with no experience.>A Veteran Prosecutor.>A NU Law Enforcer.>Jeff Jefferson…?>Write In?(Last Reply of the day.

The TV displays the courtroom in its entirety, then it flickers into different still shots of the place; very reminiscent of the senate TV program they show the highlights of every now and then during the news, nothing you have ever put any attention on before so you don’t know why it just clicked with you now.You catch an extremely familiar face on the prosecution side… That’s Jeff Jefferson! Wait, that cannot be! Why is Double J on the prosecutor seat?!“It came to everyone as a shock to hear that such a young man was appointed for this crucial case, any thoughts on prosecutor Jefferson?” The reporter comments. It seems they will provide commentary for this trial today.“Regarding the man himself I have nothing to say, but I have concerning thoughts I’m not going to air right now.” The lawyer softly chuckles.“Could you explain why? We learned he was brought back from self-imposed ‘retirement’ for this case, and knowing his record, we assume he’s pretty good even if he’s so young.” Reporter ignores her guest’s eagerness to keep quiet.“It’s the reason why he’s placed here that concerns me, without going into specifics, I imagine the N.U. and the government settled on choosing him instead of someone strongly affiliated to either side.”“But isn’t the DPP the one responsible for selecting the prosecutor in a case of this magnitude? Any type of intervention, like the one you’re suggesting, is against the law.” Reporter asks.“With the political tension surrounding our country these days, I imagine the DPP tried to appease everyone as much as possible.” The lawyer responds.“But both sides want this man in jail, don’t they? Why would they oppose each other?”“Who knows?” The dean chuckles.“I prefer if you directly answered the questions next time…” The reporter didn’t like that answer.Shortly after, Ammirati makes his way to the defendant table with the help of a couple of police officers. Like always, he’s all smiles. The news people already said their piece about him, so they didn’t continue to hammer into the guy.Immediately after, President Lazarus Don Gordon Jr. makes his way with his entourage to the front row of the crowd seats; the reporter asks if there is anything the president can do besides watching the trial, the college dean explains that he can take the floor and give some words for the judge to hear at any point after both the defense and the prosecution made their cases, but that’s all he can do. In trials of old, he would’ve had a special seat next to the judge, but Gordon refused for personal reasons.Finally, the old judge makes his way to his chair, he looks like an old guy, almost interchangeable from every judge man you’ve ever seen in a movie.
>>4449210The lawyer lets the audience know that the Judge is a highly-respected, patient, pragmatic, but mostly direct man. He says it’s only natural that a man of his reputation is in this role thanks to the hardening of the law by Gordon Jr.’s anti corruption policies; you have to be a remarkable individual to become a judge.After a short briefing of the allegations against the defendant (which were plenty) by one of the court officers. The Judge takes over and asks both the defense and the prosecution if they are ready, which both say they are, and the trial properly begins.The lackadaisical Double J is acting as he normally does, except he’s in a suit. You can’t actually believe he’s there! Like, it would be far more shocking if anyone here knew him, but oh well. Bernie, on the other hand, looks like the right type of relaxed for this situation. Maybe too confident, the same way he acted even when you ended up destroying his plans, he’s hard to read for all the wrong reasons. A battle of wits is about to properly begin between two individuals who don’t give a fuck…It’s the prosecution’s turn to make their statement…“Yeah, uh…” Double J lazily flips through his notes. “Damn, that’s pretty bad. Anyway, yeah, you’re guilty, right?”“No?” Bernie chuckles.“Crap, this guy’s tough.” Double J looks at the judge.“Mr. Jefferson, my colleagues spoke to me about your quirks, but their stories don’t hold a candle to what I just witnessed.” Judge doesn’t seem to be particularly happy about what Jeff is doing.“That’s bad…?” Double J doesn’t really give a fuck.“I implore you to take this seriously.” Judge rolls his eyes.Then Jeff Jefferson reiterated what was said earlier but accused Ammirati of all of it with the proper allegations. First Degree Murders, Robbery, Bribery, Human Trafficking, Terrorism, Tax Evasion, disturbing the peace and so many unpaid traffic tickets. Ammirati’s risking 1,825,000 years in prison! Now it’s the defense’s turn to speak.“I would like a recess.” Ammirati smiles.“Uh, that’s not how this works, right?” Jeff turns to the judge.“Denied.” Judge didn’t even acknowledge Jeff’s question. “Mr. Ammirati, if you don’t bring forward your case, I will have the pleasure of declaring you guilty on the spot.”“Apologies, I was merely being facetious, your honor. I know there can’t be any delays with our magnificent president in the stands.” Ammirati seems to be playing straightforward now. “These allegations, while seem true on the surface, have some nuance to them. I wasn’t the mastermind behind these heinous acts. The truth is, I’m not the actual leader of the cult, I’m just a front.”“This doesn’t absolve you of the charges.” Jefferson doesn’t seem shocked by this revelation.
>>4449213“But I would gladly make the whole country know that you built this fiasco around a pathetic individual like myself instead of the real criminal.” Ammirati is taking the piss on all of this. Everyone knows he’s the leader.“There is definitive evidence against you, Mr. Ammirati. You can play dumb all you want, but reality says otherwise.” The judge is acting more like the prosecutor than the actual prosecutor.“Yeah, tell him.” Jefferson is backing him up.“The evidence is tampered with, your honor and I can prove it.” Ammirati says while checking the files. He brings his own evidence forward. A USB Stick and some papers “This is the original documentation the police based their investigation on. If you don’t have the time to check it out, there are a few key parts and names missing that are in here. Please check them out.”“Officer, take this new evidence to the police…” Judge seems mad at this.“Hold on… I mean, uh, objection.” The great prosecutor Double J has something to say.“What for? We don’t lose anything if we wait for our boys in grey to tell us if what I have is real or not, right?” Ammirati argues against this call.“In the, uh, police report says the documents you are referring to are circumstantial evidence that lead us to the real evidence. For all we know, everything in these documents can be fake and it would not matter.” Double J sounds competent for once! “It’s a… special indication on the files from the guy conducting the investigation, your honor.”“Why are these documents part of today’s case?” Judge rightfully wonders.“They aren’t, your honor. That’s something, uh, that guy brought here.” Did Double J forget Ammirati’s name?“You’re saying to the whole country that the Prancijanian Police would use fake evidence to prosecute its people?” Ammirati is not playing the same game as the others.“That’s called Inconclusive evidence, I think. There was enough merit for an investigation…” Double J responds.“Your observation is out of line, Mr. Ammirati. Please refrain from making such comments.” The Judge won’t let Ammirati talk shit so easily.“I can see why, that’s on me.” Ammirait chuckles. “My point still stands, I’m just a front! I’m not the real leader of the Cult of Chernobog! A fool that someone else took advantage of.”“Does it matter…?” Double J raises an eyebrow.“I would like to be convicted of the crimes I did commit.” Ammirati shrugs. “That’s what justice is all about, right?”Ammirati is about to pull out some tricks from under his sleeve. This could be bad!What happens now?!>Ammirati reveals the card under his sleeve!>Double J takes over the case!>An unexpected witness shows up!>Gordon Jr. takes a stand!(Only reply of the day, we continue tomorrow.)

“Uh, is it?” Double J turns to the Judge, who only shakes his head in disappointment. “Well, you, uhm, have made your claim, but you need to back it up…”“You’re the one accusing me of these misdeeds.” Ammirati fires back.“Uhm…” Double J goes through his notes. “We have thousands of victims, hundreds of accomplices and witnesses who point at you as the main figurehead and perpetrator. Err, the burden of proof is on you.”“You haven’t found everything yet?” Ammirati chuckles.“That ain’t my job.” Double J shrugs.“Mr. Ammirati, the severity of these cases is no laughing matter. If you continue wasting our time, I’ll gladly put this case to an end.” The judge is tired of this shit.“A little short-fused, aren’t we? I can see why nobody gets a fair treatment around here.” Bernie pretends to be surprised. “Well then, do you gentlemen know what a hierarchical system is?”“Please proceed instead of asking rhetorical questions.” Judge is having none of it.“Our fancy group of friendly individuals kept a rather robust hierarchical system; we were divided into different ranks, with me posing as the maximum figure, the Final Emir, and the other powerful members were known as Chancellors, then there is an important drop of value into the next rank. I believe all the people you captured were at the end of the totem pole, correct?” Ammirait shrugs. “Lesser members didn’t know how the upper echelons operated, we kept everything under strict security measures, and our dynamic is totally lost on all of you. This is how the mastermind behind our group could mask his real influence from the public. And since the evidence I presented is not going to be taken into account, I would like to call a witness to the stand.”“Who’s this witness?” Judge asks.“One of the Chancellors, your honor.” Ammirati smiles.“I’ll allow it.” Judge is trying to conduct a fair trial. Double J didn’t have any objections, hopefully not because he wasn’t paying attention…The screen now shows the witness stand and the person Ammirati brought… He seems familiar, but you can’t recall who it is.“Please state your name, age and occupation.” Double J yawns.“I’m the minister of the dark arts, master escapist, the chancellor of the unholy – the man who always leaves his mark everywhere he goes… I’m known as the Great Markgician!” The stupid looking man poses in the stand.“What was your age again…?” Double J didn’t hear it.“Who’s this buffoon, Mr. Ammirati?” Judge is not amused.“The Chancellor I mentioned before, my witness. He knows the ins and outs of our church operations.” Bernie can’t help but to chuckle watching the Markgician do his thing.
>>4450251“I’m not a buffoon, your honor. I’m the great Markgician! The ultimate trickster! Let me show you one of my greatest abilities! Fwoosh!” The Markgician makes some briefs appear from his sleeve. “…I have your underwear, your honor. Impressive, right?”“The ladies love that trick.” Ammirati continues smiling.“…Take him out of my courtroom now.” Judge has no time for this.“Is this how the law operates, your honor?! Denying me of the few tools I have at my disposal to defend myself? I don’t believe this is a fair trial!” Ammirati is taking a piss again as the guards are taking the buffoon out.“W-Wait, you can’t take me away! I’m the Great Markgician…! It’ll only be a m-matter of time before I escape anyway! This is futile!” The Markgician is taken out by force. “T-These are your briefs, your honor! And you know it! You can’t hide the truth forever!”“I wonder if they are.” Ammirati asks the Judge.“No comments.” Judge won’t answer for this tomfoolery.“So you’re used to sealing the truth? That’s a bad trait for a judge.” Ammirati throws some shade.“But were they really yours, your honor?” Prosecutor Jefferson also wants to find the truth.“Enough.” The judge has lost his patience. “You lost your only chance to prove your innocence, Ammirati. I hope you’re happy.”“Did I? That’s a shame.” Ammirati doesn’t care one bit. “You acted out of spite and I got screwed over. My witness could’ve turned this case around, but we won’t have the chance to witness it.”“If you can’t prove anything, can we go now…?” Double J drinks some of his water.“Who says it’s over?” Ammirati has something in his sleeve! And it isn’t someone’s briefs!“The judge, probably.” Double J knows the judge is at his wits’ end.What happens now?!>Ammirati reveals his triumphant card under his sleeve!>Double J closes the case with one decisive speech.>Gordon Jr. takes a stand!

“Haha, you might be right.” Ammirati takes it with humor.“Glad we agree, your honor, please.” Double J seems happy to wrap things up.“I have something else to say.” Ammirati cordially asks for his turn.“You can, uh, send us a letter from jail or something.” Double J deadpans.“If you make a mockery out of this court one more time, Mr. Ammirati, this will be it. So I implore you to take this seriously.” The Judge gives Ammirati one last chance to overcome the insurmountable odds.“I’ll be brief then, your honor.” Ammirati is ready to play his ace. “Yes, the documentation I present might not be admissible to the court, but its content explains part of the story that seems to be lost in your archives. Previously, I asserted key events and personalities were missing from these files. The key personality being the real leader of the Cult of Chernobog, and I’ll reveal her name now.”“Spare us the details.” Double J objects on time! That’s unusual… “We’re on a televised trial, if you don’t have concrete evidence of your conjectures, all you’re going to is damage someone’s reputation.” Wait, Double J is drinking some coffee! Is that the source of his newfound energy?“Me? Throwing unfounded accusations? We all know that’s your job, Mr. Jefferson!” Ammirati cheekily smirks as he brings out of his briefcase. “I implore you all to look at this picture! In our cult, our leader has one special rarity to denote their rank, you can read it on our rules. One beautifully crafted gemstone, very few know the importance of this shard… Yes, to everyone who’s watching, it is what you think it is. The woman in this picture has it in her possession! The real leader of the Cult of Chernobog is none other than Vivienne Neuville.”“The importance of this picture is not relevant to the case, your honor. And he presented without your consent, it shouldn’t be admissible.” Jeff argues against what’s happening.“Huh? You don’t think that Vivienne Neuville having a shard of the Red Crystal is relevant to the case?! Did you even read the case file, friend?!” Ammirati is being especially loud for no reason.“I want order in this court!” The judge brings the noise to a halt. “I find this evidence admissible.”“Uh, objection, your honor.” Double J is tired again. “I reiterate my complaint from earlier.”“Ask any of the Chancellors, the owner of the shard is the leader of the cult. That’s the only way to determine it.” Ammirati smiles. “Let everyone know you got the wrong criminal! You open up the circus for a second-rate show! You couldn’t find her and put all the blame on me! How pathetic.”“You’re a grating man, Ammirati. This doesn’t absolve you of anything.” Judge responds begrudgingly.“That’s only the beginning, your honor.” Ammirati is all smiles now.

>>4450418>Gordon Jr. takes a stand!
“I would like to speak for a moment.” That’s the deep voice of President Don Gordon Jr., he stands up from his special seat in the crowd and makes his way to the witness stand, even before the Judge agrees to have him there, leaving him with no other option to agree.“Did you write a panegyric for me?” Ammirati makes fun of the most powerful man in the country, this doesn’t humor the man. “Perhaps a eulogy instead...”“A break, cool.” Double J sits down and starts drinking more of his water, ignoring his coffee.“What kind of man are you Bernardo Ammirati?” Gordon Jr. asks ominously to the leader of the cult.“That’s a broad question.” Ammirati has no fucks in his body.“What do you stand for?” Gordon Jr. asks another question.“So that’s where you were going…” Ammirati is slightly confused by the president’s questions. “Does it matter now? Can we continue the trial? I don't think this intervention is in any way productive.”“Look at me when I’m talking to you. Now respond.” Gordon won’t let this continue until he gets what he wants.“Quite aggressive, ain’t you?” Bernie taunts Gordon by pretending to be scared.“Mr. President, with all due respect, we don’t have all day. So please go ahead with what you want to say.” The Judge intervenes.“I believe everyone in this country wonders who Bernardo Ammirati is. If he refuses to tell us, I will. He was born in the streets, abandoned by those who brought him to the world, dumped like a stray dog straight into an orphanage. While the other parents died saving their children from the chaos at the time, this child found his new home next to a garbage can. A kid with no identity, no name, no honor. Did you pick Ammirati yourself?” Gordon begins his lecture.“It’s better than Gordon.” Ammirati shrugs as he’s completely unaffected by Gordon’s words.“You were treated like less than dirt. Bullied by your peers, all them in the same situation, but they knew the blood of cowards runs through your veins. Did you feel like you deserved it? All of you were Children of the Future, orphans from the war. Were you all that different? You all wanted a place where you could belong. Isn’t that what you thought?” Gordon pretends to pity Ammirati.“Did I? You’re giving me too much credit, I was just a dumb kid.” Ammirati chuckles.“A dumb kid that tried to punch too much above his weight. His aspirations too big for someone who was born to grovel. A man so pathetic he didn’t hesitate to use an innocent girl he manipulated to save himself. We know about what you did to those women, this trick of yours won’t work.” Gordon points at Bernie’s face.“If you’re really so incompetent to believe Vivi is innocent, I’m voting Lloydington.” Bernie chuckles.“I ask you again, what do you stand for?” Gordon raises his voice. They are staring at each other, everyone just silently witnessing their show.
>>4450609“Hehehehe!” Ammirati just bursts out laughing. “What are you trying to accomplish here with your pseudo-psychological analysis, Gordy? You want me to get mad? To cry? To lash out? Why? I don’t care, sticks and stones may hurt my bones and all that jazz. None of this matters. If I were you, I would be worried about who actually took me down, you could be next. I hope you’re next, hey, if you guys are watching, can you target him next?”“What are you trying to accomplish here?”“Woah, Gordy, did you forget that we’re in a court session?! I’m trying to gain my freedom! Maybe also showing the people who took me down that Big Gordy ain’t such a big deal, but that’s just a plus. You’re doing a good job of that yourself though.” Ammirati shrugs.“How can you live with yourself after all you’ve done?” Gordon looks down on Bernie.“With a positive attitude?”“So in the end, everyone was right about you, Bernardo, and I hate you for it.”“Calm down! Hate is such a strong word, Gordy.” Ammirati raises his hands. “And you said it yourself, I have the blood of cowards or something like that.”“I don’t believe those words, Ammirati. All I see is a person who we, as a nation, failed, the same way we failed the victims. I can only pity you.” Gordon sighs.“So you were trying to provoke me, cheeky Gordy! Haha!” Ammirati is having a blast. “Very well, I think I had enough fun for a lifetime. I admit it, I’m the leader of the Cult, I was trying to trick you all to entertain the audience! One last show before I say goodbye! I’m a dead man anyway.”“Huh, I won? Nice.” Double J wakes up from his slumber.“M-Mr. Ammirati, are you really confessing to all your crimes?” The Judge is in complete shock.“Indeed I have, I’ve seen the error of my ways! Despite all your shortcomings, we all found justice together, isn’t that nice?” Ammirati smiles one last time.“No. It was a huge waste of time.” Jeff sentences as the trial ends abruptly.It seems like that’s more or less the end of the Public Trial… You should start preparing for the party soon!

Well that’s the end of that as far as you’re concerned, all your efforts paid off, what a nice sensation to have. Now it’s time to move on! Unless something unexpected happens, you hope nothing of this nature occurs. This is exactly the kind of mentality that allows something unexpected to happen, more by causality than anything, like the whole world is conspiring against you. You should stop thinking about this…You need to worry about what’s next, like the party! You need to start preparing in a little bit or else you’re going to be late. Maybe you’re exaggerating a little bit, you like being punctual but you’re taking it too far. You can enjoy a little moment with everyone here. You quickly check your phone and see some comments in the different chat groups about the trial, but none directly to you, so for now, you’ll ignore them…“So, any comments, girls?” You start the conversation here with actual people you can talk to.“That was more entertaining than it had any right to be!” Yu Yan enjoyed the clowning on screen.“The grand speeches, the unexpected turns of events, and the crazy characters! I didn’t know the court system was this fascinating! A career in this field wouldn’t be so bad.” Nariko loved it so much that she wants to become a lawyer.“I don’t think that’s how these normally go.” Amelia poops on your OG Hobo’s party.“I’m not so sure, this was a real case, Ame.” Yu Yan raises an eyebrow.“I… I still don’t understand what that magician man’s deal was. Am I the only one?” Ruby can’t take her mind off that. He really leaves a mark… “Is this really how the law works? I-Is our court system this goofy…?” Ruby is having a little existential crisis.“I just said that I don’t think that’s how these normally go...” The Bearrito pouts, feeling like she was being ignored.“Did you think those were the Judges’ briefs?” Yu Yan grins. You wonder if Bruna saw that trick…“Don’t be ridiculous.” Nariko won’t entertain the idea.“It must’ve been really humiliating for him if they were.” Ruby, on the other hand, believes there is chance.“Yeah, stripping away someone’s underwear, who does that?” Yu Yan smirks at your direction. You look away.“I don’t enjoy perverted characters like him.” The perverted cow has contempt for the Markgician.“Nariko, this actually happened.” Your sister shakes her head.What do you do?>“Any comments on what our president did?”>“So Ammirati was a total psychopath in the end.”>Prepare them dinner before leaving for the party!>Write In.(The cozy place was selected btw.)

>>4451469>>“So Ammirati was a total psychopath in the end.”
“Any comments on what our president did?” You want to know their opinions.“He’s far more intimidating than I remember.” Amelia comments first.“What? He’s a fragile old man! He looks one stroll away from having a heart attack.” Yu Yan doesn’t quite get it. “Still, he’s in better shape than Nariko.”“Y’know, I’m going to write down how many fat jokes you make.” Amelia brings her phone out from her shell.“Count the ones that are actually funny too.” Mooriko sarcastically retorts.“G-Going back to Johnny’s question. I wonder why he kept asking that criminal what he stood for.” Ruby wants to talk about this. “He’s a criminal, what’s there to know? You don’t commit those atrocities if you have principles or morals.”“So you’re okay with thinking that he’s just some cartoon villain?” Amelia didn’t like that answer.“I don’t think it’s inconceivable to think there are just bad people in this world.” Ruby says without much confidence.“I mean, he totally deflected all questions, so we don’t know that for sure.” Yu Yan shrugs.“What could he possibly say to justify his actions?” Ruby is confused.“People do horrible things, Ruby, anyone can. There is nothing they can say to change what they did… You end up just wanting to know why… it’s just something you need to have to make peace with what happened. No matter how dumb their answer is.” Amelia tries to explain herself, probably thinking about someone you hate…“There is morbid curiosity as well, but I don’t believe it was the case here.” Nariko points out.“I don’t think so either. I felt like our president was sincere.” Ruby smiles.“Could’ve been an elaborate stunt, hehe.” Yu Yan smirks. “I thought it was until the old man realized our baddie here wasn’t going to answer the way he thought he would.”“I’ve never felt that vibe.” Ruby shakes her head.“Honestly, I think this is the first time I saw him, y’know, not threatening people. So I’m not used to any of this.” You don’t remember any other type of appearance from Gordon on TV. “There’s clearly more to him than we know.”“Does anyone know anything about him? He barely shows up on TV...” Amelia realizes now that you mention it. “I don’t put much attention into politics…” Nariko confesses.“I don’t either. I know Gordon is an exceptional man, but that’s it!” Ruby has no clue either.“That’s my impression as well.” Nariko agrees.“Are we really going to ignore what the prosecutor guy did…?” Yu Yan brings another topic onto the table.“Meow. Meow.” Bradford Jr. has some kind words for Double J.Well, nothing the girls say changed your newly formed opinion on Gordon Jr., you’re still on the fence about him… But you’re going to wait and see if that somehow changes!

Now that you feel this chat has reached its natural conclusion after Bradford Jr.’s words of wisdom you let everyone know that you’re planning to go out now! You push that stupid looking Bearrito out of the way, and make your way out to your room to get some nicer clothes for your night out.You hear the girls talking among each other about other trivial things while you’re preparing, having a good time without you, which is really good because they’ll have to endure each other while you’re out. If they stay that is, they could go back to their apartment instead; but by the looks of it, Ruby seems to enjoy their company. They’ll have to figure out what to eat on their own like adults.Still, you go with your clothes in hand to take a shower! You need to be in your most presentable state, whatever that means! As you put on your supposedly nicer clothes, you call up Xavi to let him know that you need to go in a few minutes! You need him ready since he’ll be the one driving as previously established. He asked what place you are going to eat, and you told him it’s going to be a cozy place you always had your eye on, nothing really that fancy but not cheap either like a fast food chain. You let the team know that the time to meet draws near in the group chat! As you go, you say good-bye to all the girls who were busy playing a card game at the dinner table… that looks like fun… And you’re going to have fun too, that’s all that matters here! Everyone having a good time!And so, you made the trip to get everyone just like yesterday, except no ice cream this time, that’s for dessert! Some took the dress code more seriously than others, you just went with something comfortable plus jeans, you’re not going to a fancy place after all.“Thanks everyone for coming over, let’s have a good time! Now tell me what the fuck happened to my goddamn door.” You want your answers! Did they think you forgot?!“We need a proper celebration after what we accomplished.” B-WORM completely ignores your question.“Everyone watched the trial, right?” Bubbles diverts the conversation as well.“Ammirati is in jail. The cult is no more. Thank you all!” Giorsal is almost moved to tears. You know what brings you to tears? Your door.“I didn’t watch it, but my sister Olivia told me about it. I can’t believe we made such a difference!” Aurora seems so happy right now. Like you would be if your door was fixed properly.“You know, I think I met the prosec-… Nevermind. Forget I said anything.” Xavi retracts his statement. Yeah, because it has nothing to do with your van’s door! You don’t care that he fixed it, it looks like dog shit!“Jefferson followed all of my indications, thank goodness.” Richard seems relieved about what happened. You’re just going to desist on the idea of having justice for your door. “I proposed him out of necessity, but you all saw how he’s like now.”
>>4451774“Huh, right, I forgot you know each other.” You knew there was something between them when you met Double J the first time. RIP Poker Nights…“Out of necessity? What happened?” B-WORM wants more details.“Internal politics plus Bureaucracy, I don’t want to get into the details right now, but we needed someone unbiased for the job.” Judging by Richard’s expression, it must’ve been a nightmare to deal with.“For a second, I thought Ammirati would’ve gotten away with this.” B-WORM was worried.“You weren’t the only one.” Xavi agrees. “He did convince me that one time though…”“You two need to be more positive! We had everything in our favor, that’s what we worked so hard for!” Scarlet reprimands both guys.“We did it all in one day’s time though.” Xavi has a point.“Hey, it wasn’t easy at all.” You won’t let this guy undermine your efforts!“For some of us, it was longer than just a day!” Giorsal piles on Xavi as well. Yeah, it was almost a week of effort…! Wait, that doesn’t sound much better.“Agreed. I got beaten up more than once to get to this point.” B-WORM joins in too.“S-Sorry, I forgot I was the only one who joined late.” Xavi apologizes.“I joined late too and I knew how difficult it was for everyone! If I can get it, you should too!” Aurora affirms.“I think we should move on, we’re here to celebrate!” Scarlet tries to play peacemaker. “We brought this big baddie to jail!”“It’s no big deal, I can take it. I make fun of them too every once in a while.” Xavi knows how banter works.“I bet she doesn’t care, she’s just hungry.” You know Bubble’s quirks.“N-No! I-I just…!” Scarlet won’t let herself be slandered.“You mean you ate before this?!” Aurora looks at Scarlet in awe. “You’re really brave!”“W-What’s that supposed to mean?!” Scarlet doesn’t want this bullying to go further.“Can we move on?” Richard raises an eyebrow.“I would like to know where we are going!” Giorsal has been excited ever since she got in the van. It’s like she never went out eating with a group of people before.“It’s a secret.” You wink.“But I need to know how much money I need to spend.” Giorsal brings her coin purse out and picks some coins from it.“Heh, it’s not going to be that expensive...” You bring the hype down a lil’ bit.“Are you sure?” Giorsal wants a definitive answer.How do you respond?>“I’m paying, don’t worry.” Take the whole burden.>“Yeah, it’s a little cozy place I wanted to go.” Just tell her where it is so Giorsal can relax.>“Yes, believe me.” Giorsal should trust you at this point.>Write In.(Last Reply of the day, we continue tomorrow!)
>>4451777>“Yes, believe me.” Giorsal should trust you at this point.
>>4451777>>“Yes, believe me.” Giorsal should trust you at this point.

>>4451777>“Yes, believe me.” Giorsal should trust you at this point.>Wiggle those eyebrows like a trustworthy person you are.
“Yes, believe me.” You think Giorsal should trust you for something so minor at this point. “Do I look like I have money?” Funnily enough, that phrase convinced Giorsal.“D-Do you want me to pay for you…?” Giorsal believed you way too much!“I-I don’t think Johnny is really broke…” Even Scarlet believed it. You paid when you went on a date with her! Did she forget? It was a shitty date anyway…“He wouldn’t have invited us if he expected us to pay for him.” Richard argues.“I have a friend who did that all the time, she arranged dates with some dudes and expected them to pay for everything. I don’t know why they kept going out with her! I think they were stupid.” Aurora remembers. “But I always felt bad for ‘em.”“Did you partake in any of these dates?” B-WORM wonders to keep the conversation going.“I went to a couple of double dates with her, but once I realized what she was doing, I stopped! She begged me to go, but I just couldn’t afford it if she decided to make me pay! I couldn’t risk it!” Aurora shakes her head.“You were never in danger of paying anything...” Richard doesn’t need his detective skills to realize. “She wanted you there to make it more interesting to the losers she was deceiving.”“Oh yeah, but I wouldn’t put it past her to make me pay!” Aurora doesn’t agree.“Your friend sounds trashy.” Xavi raises an eyebrow.“I-Is it really that bad letting someone else pay?” Scarlet seems to have done it at one point.“If you’re not taking advantage of someone’s naivety like, for example, Giorsal here, I don’t see why not.” B-WORM holds a reasonable opinion about the subject.“I-I’m not gullible! I was just worried!” Giorsal defends her naivety. “So that’s how your bubble butt was funded…” You raise an eyebrow. Scarlet angrily slaps you on the shoulder. “Ouch.”“Hey, are we still using our nicknames?” Aurora seems happy about this.“No.” Both Richard and Scarlet respond without hesitation.“I prefer still being called by it.” B-WORM wants to establish that he’s forever the worm with the B. Did you ever ask him what that means?
>>4452898“S-So, you don’t need money?” Giorsal feels ashamed for asking as she keeps playing with her coin purse.“No, I’m fine. It was nothing more than a joke...” You have conflicted feelings about how this conversation developed thanks to your innocuous comment. “Thanks anyway.”“Hmm…” Giorsal pouts.“So I assume everyone is paying for their own meal, correct?” B-WORM wants to make sure. You hear no objections.“That’s how I took it.” Xavi is ready. “Should we go now?”“Nobody is stopping you from driving.” Richard is unimpressed as usual.“Yeah, but I don’t know where to, Double Dick.” Xavi turns to you. “Where?”“Okay, keep going forward for a little bit…” You pull your phone out and look where the eating place is.You arrive at a nice looking Seafood restaurant you always kept an eye on, its name is The Little Oyster. Supposedly, it has been running here for decades and looks like a nice little cozy place to stay in and have a nice meal, it has a buffet too – just your kind of place, if you’re honest. You’re ambivalent on seafood, but it’s their job to change your opinion about that tonight! Why does this place have your attention? Frankly, you don’t remember at this point, but there was something years ago about it that you wanted to check out. It helped that it was close to the meat restaurant from last time, you almost forgot this existed. Going inside might refresh your memory, perhaps that’s the reason you want to eat here…You had to park a little far from the restaurant since it’s near downtown, nobody seemed bothered by the unexpected little jog you had to make. Inside, it’s a cozy, tidy place! It has plants hanging on the walls, some plaques with names on them as well, and you can see the chefs working on the meals, with the food on full display behind some glass, and some plates rotating on a conveyor belt. The relaxing music helps with the ambience as well, and not being able to smell the fish from where you are is a big plus in your book. There are large seats and tables made out of wood for you to take a seat...The place is not full but not close to empty either just like outside on the streets. It’s hard for you to get used to Pokyo Lokyo being so deserted in general…“The Little Oyster, huh? Looks pretty good.” B-WORM takes a pic of the place with this phone.“I’ve eaten here before, it is pretty good.” Xavi is fairly happy to be here.
>>4452899“I was worried you guys wouldn’t like it, or worse, that someone would be allergic to seafood.” You air your concerns.“I think this place is really really nice!” Aurora grabs your arm and smiles at you, then rests her head on your shoulder.“We haven’t eaten the food, how can you say that?” Richard has to be a dick every time, huh?“Okay, you need to give Johnny some space, Rora.” Scarlet puts her humanity in between you two to separate you. Then gently pushes you forward.“Huh, if you say so.” Aurora starts walking forward after being confused for a second.“Those plants need watering...” Giorsal notices.“I think they’re made of plastic.” Richard uses his detective skills.“Eh?!” Giorsal didn’t think of that possibility.“We found empty seats for everyone.” Xavi announces to the group as both him and B-WORM were occupied doing so.Who do you want to sit next to you?>Scarlet.>Xavi.>B-WORM.>Giorsal.>Richard.>Aurora.What do you after ordering food?>Ask everyone what they thought about the trial more in-depth.>Ask what everyone’s plans are from now on.>Let them guide the conversation.>Write In.(Only reply of the day, we continue Saturday!

Upon hearing Xavi, you all took a seat and ordered your food, you asked for today’s special, whatever that is. The table is round and fairly big, with a large couch almost completely encircling it, it’s comfortable and soft. Clockwise, the order you’re all sitting is: Richard, Scarlet, Xavi, Giorsal, Aurora, You and B-WORM. How you ended up in that order was mostly by chance, but you won’t complain.As the waitress leaves with everyone’s order, you start a more serious conversation topic, one that nobody here should ignore:“So what did you guys think about the trial? Like, more in depth than what we have talked about so far.” You find a gap between conversations to start your own. “They did show a lot of character in there, huh?”“That Ammirati is surely an odd fellow. I don’t think he ever took anything seriously, not even for a moment. It sure left a bittersweet taste in my mouth.” B-WORM almost wished he didn’t watch because of it.“Right? It surprised me, I thought he would break for sure once reality hit him, or get angry, but not even a hint of that. Maybe when he’s behind the bars he will stop thinking that this is all a joke.” Xavi agrees somewhat with what B-WORM is saying.“That does sound like a letdown.” Aurora understands their gripes.“He has a fucked up sense of humor, so it didn’t surprise me that much.” You just remember what you went through inside the dark church. Nothing made any sense.“Ammirati acted like the perverse man he truly is. There is no guilt or remorse inside of him, no regards for anything or anyone, not even himself. He only wanted to amuse himself in any way possible…” Giorsal puts her napkins on her collar and on her lap.“We were all a bad joke to him, huh?” That doesn’t sit well with Xavi.“We’re talking like he defeated us or something! We saved a ton of people and stopped the loser from destroying the world! Why do we care if he feels bad about it or not? He’s not important.” Scarlet won’t let negativity have its way!“I agree, we’re giving too much credit to a guy who was this easily defeated.” Richard agrees with Bubbles.“I never said he was particularly impressive.” B-WORM doesn’t want to be misunderstood. “It is easy for us to say when we didn’t deal with him directly.” He turns to you.“He wasn’t hot shit, so, meh?” You shrug.“You mentioned some interesting tidbits about that prosecutor, Richard. What’s the deal with him? You also mentioned something about internal politics.” B-WORM is curious to know about Double J.
>>4458232“Oh yes, Jefferson. I wouldn’t say these details are interesting, but we had an internal dispute regarding the prosecution role for this case. The N.U. wanted their man for the case, and the government wanted theirs. The N.U. needed the popularity boost so they wanted a favorable verdict, while the Government wanted a Prancijanian man for the job to stop N.U. from overstepping their boundaries even further; the Court System can’t be affected by external forces. Since I was highly regarded by everyone for bringing the case forward, I suggested Jefferson for the role as an unbiased entity, he retired months ago from his position for personal matters. President Gordon Jr. attended the trial as a show of goodwill from the government to the N.U. that he was pressuring for Ammirati to be imprisoned.” Richard explains.“I don’t think I get what the problem really is. You said we had enough evidence to get Ammirati into jail easily. Why was N.U. so distrustful?” Xavi is confused.“From what I gathered, as much as this was a massive popularity boost, it could’ve created the adverse effect if things didn’t go as planned. To outsiders, we’re under the wing of an oppressive authoritative government, so to them our Court System cannot be trusted. Their popularity here in Prancijan is what gives the N.U. legitimacy to continue here; if they are widely unpopular, it would look like an authoritarian government was replaced by another one. Other foreign powers won’t take kindly to that and Prancijan would have legitimate reasons to request their departure.” Richard explains this overcomplicated mess.“Sounds complicated…” Aurora tries to laugh it off.“It isn’t; I just considered it dull. I severely dislike these issues. It makes us walk on eggshells for no good reason...” Richard expresses his frustration.“So this means that this is the best case scenario for the N.U., correct?” B-WORM raises an eyebrow.“And for the victims as well.” Richard puts his little caveat.“That Jefferson guy, where do you know him anyway?” Scarlet wants a simpler topic.“I worked alongside him, he’s an honest guy but not awfully competent on his own.” Richard shrugs.“Why do I have a hunch that there is more to him?” Giorsal glares at Richard.“I have no idea what you want me to say and I’m a detective.” Richard raises an eyebrow. “Johnny knows him as well.”“Yeah, he’s my neighbor.” You nod quickly like your stupid sister. Oh god, it’s contagious! “But that’s kind of it. Anyway, I was going to ask you guys what you make of our president going there, but Richard pretty much answered my question…”“It leaves another question open: Why did he agree to play the N.U.’s game? He certainly didn’t have anything to gain politically.” B-WORM brings forward another question. “Best thing I can come up with is a boost to his popularity, he needed it.”
>>4458236“Your guess is as good as mine.” Richard doesn’t seem to care.“Oh, look! Our food is here!” Aurora gets excited and grabs your arm.As the feast is presented, you know it’s finally time to eat! It looks really yummy!…But this doesn’t really help you jog your memory of this place.What do you do?>Shift topics to a less serious conversation.

As all the plates were served, you couldn’t help but notice that Aurora’s was certainly lacking in comparison to the others, it looked more like an appetizer than a complete meal. You whispered to Aurora asking if she would let you share your meal with her, which she politely declined, but upon your insistence she relented without issue.From the corner of your eye, you noticed that Scarlet realized what you were doing and, after putting two and two together, stole a piece of your food in front of everyone shamelessly for seemingly no reason. As everyone noticed Bubbles’ disgusting act, she put her plate forward and told everyone they are free to eat from hers as well.In fact, Scarlet proposed to put everyone’s plate in the middle and do the same, so everyone can eat what they want like some kind of buffet. Giorsal loved the idea, probably because she has never done anything like it before, and put her plate up for grabs as well. Xavi also did the same, exclaiming he will get better food this way. You and Aurora soon followed together without any fanfare. B-WORM did it as well after taking a picture of his plate; then finally Richard did it begrudgingly, soon he will realize the magic of sharing... or not, he’s a double dick after all.Everyone happily ate together, with maybe just a little too much being spilled on the table, but that’s what napkins are for! Well, plates do a better job, but they are up there and you’re here. It ended up being a great idea, you enjoyed a variety of different dishes and everyone got to eat as much as they wanted – yeah, some ate more than they would’ve done otherwise, but you’re not complaining about something like that! They’ll have to abide by the consequences of an unhealthy diet later.“It’s so delish!” Scarlet is enjoying expanding her backyard’s territory.“I know!” Aurora loves it too!“I didn’t remember it being this good.” Xavi is on the fish train too.“You haven’t eaten much…” Giorsal glares at you like a worried grandma. You never had a grandma who made you overeat, but you’ve heard those stories before!“I eat enough for my frame.” You’re fine anyway.“Are you shit talking-me again?” Scarlet feels persecuted. “This is totally a cheat day, we’re celebrating big here!”“I-I wasn’t even talking about you, but if you’re feeling like honoring your nickname…” You couldn’t help yourself… Scarlet sarcastically smiles at you for a second then frowns.“Did you guys ever explain why her codename is Bubbles? If you did, I think I missed it.” B-WORM wonders.“Can’t we stop talking about those stupid nicknames? I’m tired of it!” Scarlet demands peace.“Agreed.” Richard is on board with this idea.“Point still stands, there isn’t much we know about each other and I was curious.” B-WORM doesn’t feel guilty about this.
>>4458523“You’re lowkey a very curious individual, Mr. WORM.” Giorsal notices.“I hope I haven’t troubled any of you with my questions.” B-WORM preemptively apologizes.“You haven’t, I think.” Xavi didn’t realize B-WORM has asked that many questions, you haven’t either until now. Wait, is that really a thing? You’re confused now.“This gave me an idea, why don’t we play a Question Game? It would make it easier to get to know each other.” You have a brilliant idea.“What’s a Question Game?” Giorsal has no idea what you’re talking about.“A game where we get to ask questions.” Xavi poorly explains to make fun of Giorsal.“That’s what I gathered, but how does it work?” Giorsal took his response to face value.“That would depend on the game.” Aurora smiles.“…” Giorsal wants real answers.“Have you ever played Truth or Dare? Something like that.” Aurora tries her best to answer now.“No.” Giorsal looks down at her skirt.“Ta-dah! I knew we would do something like this!” Scarlet takes something out from her pocket. It’s a bunch of sticks of different sizes. “Let’s play with these! Each one of us picks a stick, the one with the smallest stick will have to answer a question from everyone else! The longest one gets to ask a question first, then the second longest and so forth. How does that sound?”“It would be a real shame if you brought those here and we didn’t use them, so let’s do it!” Aurora is on board.“I say it’s better than spending 20 minutes deciding on what game to pick.” Xavi agrees as well.“It can be any kind of question?” Richard wants a clarification.“Y-Yeah.” Scarlet got all tensed up by Richard’s seriousness.“Short answers aren’t allowed?” Richard asks.“T-That would depend on the person asking.” Scarlet doesn’t like where this is going anymore.“Very well. I’ll participate.” Richard wants to use this for real business.“Now you put everyone on the edge.” You call him out.“I have to make it interesting for myself.” Richard won’t feel guilty about this.“You are already aware, but it’s a double edged sword, Mr. Richard.” Giorsal gets all intense as well.“I have no idea what to ask.” Xavi breaks the tension by being himself.“Same...” You just wanted something chill but you’ll have to deal with weird shenanigans... So business as usual. “Everyone else is on board?”You see no objections.“Okay, let’s do a quick round, here…” Scarlet holds the sticks for everyone to take. “Last one is for me!”You all take the sticks… Yours seems to be the 2nd longest. And the loser is…Who’s the loser? The one you’re going to ask the questions!>Scarlet.>Xavi.>B-WORM.>Giorsal.>Richard.>Aurora.What question do you want to ask?>Write In.(Last Reply of the day, we continue tomorrow.)
>>4458524>B-WORM>"What got you into the entity business anyway? From what I know, they seek out people with... issues. Going through things worse than anything normal or usual. What's yours if you don't mind me asking? I want to know the reasons why we're even here, in this dumb war to begin with. I get it if you don't wanna answer. It's a tough topic after all."It might kill the mood to talk about traumas or shit, but we're a team and we got 6 Handsomeness going. And Johnny can use this to judge people in his head if they're really worth relying on to save the world like he wants, if it comes down to having to decide serious shit or whatever. He broke from the Motley Crew for that, remember guys? He had that whole revelation at the end of Judgement Day? It would be like Johnny to get serious about things like this, having come as far as he has

And the loser is… Giorsal! She’s the pathetic individual who took out the smallest straw from the pile! Everyone is going to remember that the first person to ever lose this game is none other than Giorsal, and you’ll bully her when the time comes because of this. Well, since you’re 2nd, you need to think of a question!“Oh…” Giorsal is saddened yet excited about losing. “W-What am I supposed to do?”“Nothing! We need to check who has the longest straw first.” Scarlet explains to Cloud Head. Yeah, you’re going to call her Cloud Head from now on, the other nickname sucked.“Huh, I think I won…” Xavi shows his long stick.“Ask her something, buddy.” Aurora encourages Xavi.“It can be anything.” Scarlet reminds him.“Huh, let me see… uhm, I wasn’t prepared for this…” Xavi is having problems here. “Why the big hair?”“Is that your question?” Giorsal is not sure if she should answer.“That’s certainly a question.” Richard is not impressed.“I’ll go with that anyway.” Xavi doesn’t want more problems.“Uhm, my grandmother used to comb my hair this way and I still like it.” Giorsal plays with her fingers as she answers, a bit embarrassed.“That’s cute.” Aurora smiles.“Yeah.” You agree.“Can’t imagine her with another haircut.” Scarlet nods.“I know that in the countryside, they like those types of haircuts.” B-WORM brings a tidbit.“Huh, by the way, I think I have the second longest stick.” You show them it. “So Giorsal…” You get all serious.“Yes?” Giorsal gets all serious as well.“What’s up with the plants? Why do you like them?” You don’t know what her deal is.“I’m a botanist! Ever since I was little I loved taking care of my mom’s garden.” Giorsal smiles.“A botanist that can’t recognize a plant from plastic…” Richard reminds everyone about that little mishap from her.“I-I’ve never seen a plastic plant before.” Giorsal reveals. “They aren’t as gorgeous as the real ones.”“How is that possible? I know they’re tacky and all, but…” Scarlet is surprised.“T-That’s another matter entirely.” Giorsal refuses to answer.“Well, it’s my turn to ask, so spill the beans!” Scarlet eggs her on.“A-All of my family were environmentalists. I used to live in a Green Community away from the main city until I fell ill and I had to move to the city; there are many things that I’m not aware of...” Giorsal explains her own backstory.“So you grew up sheltered? It’s my turn to ask now.” B-WORM shows his stick.
>>4459604“I spent most of my life inside a hospital room, yes. I was always unlucky since I was little…” Giorsal looks down. “I never attended school, never had any friends, or anything of the like... if you’re wondering.”“You’re not missing anything with school.” You shake your head. It’s all shit anyway.“But you said you’re a botanist, you had to study for that… How does that work?” Scarlet sneaks another question.“I took online classes, I’ve never exercised my career until very recently...” Giorsal is so ashamed of herself right now.“I assume you had the chance when you got your powers.” Richard deduces. “Makes me wonder, how does a Judge get their power? I know you’re sickly people, but is that the only requirement?”“You have to die, Mr. Richard.” Giorsal won’t go into details.“Die?” Richard wants to know more.“Whoops! It’s my turn to ask now! Gio, would you like to go out to have fun somewhere else another day?” Aurora smiles at the botanist.“Uhm, uh…?” Giorsal got all confused.“That’s not the type of question you should make.” Scarlet shakes her head. “You should ask details about her.”“But that’s my question!” Aurora doesn’t care one bit.“Still...” Scarlet is one curious bubble.“Then, uh, who’s your favorite person here?” Aurora radically changes questions here!“F-Favorite…?” Giorsal is all confused. Then she glares at you for no reason.“What kind of question is that?” Xavi doesn’t like that one bit for some reason.“Hey, could you guys stop complaining about my questions? I’m doing what I can.” Aurora doesn’t like being questioned too much.“We’re worried you’re not getting how this game works.” Richard just tells it as it is.“Still a better question than Xavi’s.” B-WORM has his reservations.“I mean, her second question works for this without issues.” You defend Aurora’s actions.“I-I don’t have favorites, no.” Giorsal has no answer for this.“Oh, I thought you were going to say Johnny or something. You keep looking at him all the time.” Aurora points out.“I-I’m fiercely glaring at him! I can feel his twisted mind going into depraved places…” Giorsal is glaring at you again. “I would cover my blouse if I were you, Aurora.”“H-Hey, don’t say stuff like that. You’re making me sound like a monster.” Yeah, you’re not flawless, but you’re discreet, gosh darn it!“Huh? I don’t mind.” Aurora doesn’t see a problem. She even gets closer to you.“Y-You don’t know what he’s capable of!” Giorsal warns Aurora of your devilish attitude.“What did he do to you…?” Scarlet is now glaring at you as well as she asks Giorsal.“You already asked your question, so please be quiet.” You adjust your glasses as you shut down Scarlet.
>>4459608“Can we move on?” Richard wants this to stop.“Hmph, fine.” Scarlet grabs everyone’s sticks back. “Here, take…”Who’s the loser now?!>Scarlet.>Xavi.>B-WORM.>Richard.>Aurora.>Write In.What question do you want to ask?>Write In.

>Xavi>THE FUCK HAPPENED TO MY VAN?!>Pointed look at everyone as we say this.
And the loser is… Xavi! You already know a great deal about Xavi thanks to your little adventure in Dream Hill, but there is always more stuff you can ask about him, in fact you have the perfect question to ask! And you took the longest stick as well, how fortunate!“So I go next, huh?” Xavi sounds thrilled…“Don’t worry, I’ll throw you a softball.” You show him your really long stick. That would sound bad without context. “THE FUCK HAPPENED TO MY VAN?!” You point look at everyone as you say this.“Since I’m legally obligated to give you some kind of answer, all I can say is that it was Scarlet’s fault.” Xavi looks away and nervously drinks his water.“M-My fault?! You know that’s not true at all! Xavi, how dare you?” Scarlet looks incredibly offended right now.“You were the one who said you-know-what!” Xavi defends his position.“That’s because B-WORM dropped it and we needed to act at that moment!” Scarlet won’t take the blame.“I wouldn’t have dropped it if Giorsal didn’t say she activated it, I’m not careless.” B-WORM is not going to stand idle either.“I didn’t say anything, don’t lie, it was Aurora’s call! Did you forget?” Giorsal won’t be bullied.“Y’know I was busy being yelled at by Richard, right? I told you that I couldn’t say anything! It was up to you, Gio!” Aurora isn’t going to accept this either.“But I told him to stop yelling at you!” Giorsal speaks the truth.“I recall telling you all that I’m not going to make myself responsible for your blunders.” Richard raises his hands in the air like that proves something. “If I kept my mouth shut, we wouldn’t be here right now.”“C’mon, it wasn’t that dangerous.” Scarlet shakes her head; it appears everyone else agrees but…“Can you guys actually explain to me what happened?!” You just hear people shifting blame on each other without an explanation.“I think we all should move onto the next question!” Scarlet decides on her own. They all seem to agree, even that bastard Richard.“W-Wait!” You want your answers. They can’t keep getting away with this!“My turn to ask!” Aurora shows her stick, the one you held before. “Did you ever have a girlfriend?”“No.” Xavi shakes his head. He was quick to admit it.“Do you want me to present you to one of my friends?” Aurora smiles.“Uhm…” Xavi is thinking about it. Maybe after hearing her story from earlier, he’s having doubts.“Stop making plans with people like this...” Scarlet wants a serious Q&A.“Xavi seems like a nice dude, so I thought he wouldn’t mind…” Aurora feels a little bad about this.
>>4459906“M-My turn, so how did you get your flame?” Giorsal asks a more serious question.What Xavi says now checks out with what he told you in Dream Hill. It kinda happened to him more or less the same way as you, with the difference being that Naiad wanted someone who could protect her from the hardships of this world instead of being a cool fallen angel like Philonune.“So it can happen just like that? Interesting.” Richard finds this informative. “I believe it’s my turn now, is there any particular reason that urged you to join the cult when you did?”“I joined because they wanted to reform society and all that. I felt like… it could happen.” Xavi shrugs.“But why?” Richard wants a deeper answer.“I’m an impressionable guy, and for new recruits it was a totally different vibe. They really treated me nicely, it was like I was part of something, and people were there for me, y’know? What’s not to like?” Xavi is not trying to come up with excuses, he’s just being honest.“Murder?” Richard raises an eyebrow.“C’mon, they hide all that stuff from you. I’m not saying I wasn’t stupid, but it wasn’t as black and white as you might think.” Xavi shows remorse.“Alrighty! We’re getting a little heavy here! Now it’s my time to ask!” Scarlet wants everyone to have a good time. “Okay, Xavi, tell us what your first impression of us was!”“Like, as a group or individually?” Xavi wants clarification.“Both would be cool, but you don’t have to go in-depth.” Scarlet smiles.“Frankly, I think you guys are nice people.” Xavi gets a little embarrassed to say. “I’ll go in seat order, so, first, Richard… You were such a dick the first time we met, you’re kinda scary.”“S-Sorry about that but you were suspicious.” Richard interrogated Xavi the first time they met, after you saved Holly and the first batch of Sex Slaves.“I don’t blame you, honest. I blame you for how you acted with us here though.” Xavi chuckles, then he turns to Bubbles. “Scarlet, I thought you were cute.”“Aw! Thank you!” That made the redhead happy.“Also I thought the way you randomly raised the pitch of your voice on some words was annoying at first, but now I don’t mind.” Xavi nods to himself.“The way I do what…?” Scarlet feels self-conscious now.
>>4459911“Now, uh, Giorsal. When I saw you first in that reunion with all flame users I thought you were such a wholehearted girl.”“That’s very nice of you.” Giorsal feels surprised by this.“That quickly went to the dumpster when you panicked after that weirdo asked you about your entities’ fetishes or something. You looked like such an airhead, but it’s good to know that’s not the case.” Xavi keeps going.“Ngh…” Giorsal looks down, then glares at you.“Oh, I wonder who that valiant man was.” What great memories. “Can I skip Aurora?” Xavi asks politely.“Huh, why?!” Aurora doesn’t like this one bit. “What’s wrong with me…?”“Nothing, don’t take it the wrong way. I’m very glad I met you, same with all of you.” Xavi tries to be wholesome but Aurora is not buying it.“Then why can't you say something about me?” Aurora looks frustrated.“I can, just promise me you won’t get mad at me.” Xavi takes a sip of his drink.“When have I ever gotten mad about somethin’ any of you guys have said about me?” Aurora doesn’t get it.“I thought that your chest was massive.” Xavi opens his eyes wide. You wonder how he would react to seeing Holly…“Oh, and I was worried for a second.” Aurora took it well.“…That’s not the type of answer you should give.” Giorsal is disappointed in Rora.“And with Johnny, huh, I guess we met when you tried to take the truck away so… I thought you were going to kill me, yeah.” Xavi is being too nonchalantly about it.“And when you actually saw me?” You raise an eyebrow.“I thought you were way too damn tall.” Xavi is rather shallow. Well, most first impressions are like that.“And finally, B-WORM.” Xavi looks at the cosplayer one more time before saying anything. “All I could think of was that your haircut must be a pain in the ass to maintain.” “And it’s all worth it.” B-WORM poses. “Guess that leaves me for the final question; hmmm, tell me, Xavi, were you disappointed that all you did was drive the van?”“Yeah, sitting inside the van and waiting is so unfulfilling.” Scarlet gets why B-WORM is asking.“Actually, I was worried I was going to do more than that, haha.” Xavi is happy with his role. “This is not a TV show, I don’t need to be the main character or anything like that to know I’m being helpful.”“I see. That’s good to know.” B-WORM liked that answer.“Welp! That’s it for this round, let’s do another!” Scarlet grabs all the sticks back and presents them to everyone…!Who’s the loser now?!>Scarlet.>B-WORM.>Richard.>Aurora.>Write In.What question do you want to ask?>Write In.
>>4459913>Aurora>"Why do you hide the fact that you play SoL?"
>>4459913>Aurora.>Any developments with your new entity?
>>4459913>>Aurora>>"Why do you hide the fact that you play SoL?"
And the loser is… Aurora! You simultaneously know very much and very little about Aurora, she was at her lowest point when you first met so she easily opened up to you in desperation, probably revealing more to you than to her closest friends. But just because you know someone’s deepest secret doesn’t mean you know what she’s like day-to-day! Sadly, you’re far from being the first one this time around…“My turn! Please be kind to me, hehe.” Aurora is taking this humor.“I’m first.” Richard doesn’t look thrilled. “I’ll get straight to the point, I know Johnny was responsible for assembling this team, yet your mere presence here completely puzzles me to no end, what’s your deal? Why are you involved?”“I-I asked you to be kind...” Aurora is uncomfortable.“Richard…” You glare at the man without tact.“That seemed unnecessarily hostile.” B-WORM is surprised by this.“You need to start measuring your words, Mr. Richard.” Giorsal didn’t like that.“Let’s give him a break, we all know he’s quite direct like that, but yeah, maybe be a little nicer next time.” Scarlet plays the pacifist role.“Sorry, I’m merely curious, don’t take it as an attack.” Richard apologizes. “I really didn’t want to cause any harm…” Now he sounds remorseful.“That’s alrighty, I was actually trying to be funny… but that backfired.” Aurora still feels uncomfortable. You can tell that’s not true, Aurora really felt attacked there, but you commend her for turning the other cheek and moving on here. “Answering this is so hard, even if I tell you the whole story, I feel like it would mislead you all. Like, the story comes down to me feeling in debt with Johnny for what he did for me and wanting to repay him, but really, I did out of regret. I turned down the opportunity of helping everyone once, I didn’t want to do that again. It helped that I was sure I was doing the right thing this time, do you get me?”“Hardly.” Richard shakes his head.“I just want to help no matter what, and Johnny let me! That’s all! It’s not complicated!” Aurora puts it in even simpler words. Richard nods, not looking completely satisfied with this answer, but he will let it go regardless.“I’m next.” B-WORM shows his stick. “Continuing on this topic, why did you decide to get a flame for yourself? For example, Scarlet here doesn’t have one and found a way to help us a lot by her own means.”“I wouldn’t mind getting one…” Scarlet says between her teeth.“Johnny needed every bit of help I could offer, and Giorsal gave me the option. I wanted to show how committed I was, and I wanted to be useful too! It was the perfect storm!” A determined Aurora explains.“And it paid off. You did phenomenally well under the circumstances.” B-WORM declares.“T-Thank you!” Aurora didn’t expect those kind words.
>>4460115“For a change of pace, I think I’ll ask something softer.” It’s Xavi’s turn now. “What’s your favorite food?”“I can eat any garbage, really. Though, in my house, all desserts are considered sacred.” Aurora is thinking about this. “I don’t eat it often, but I like eating stuff with shrimp like today!” Aurora giggles. You’ll take mental note of that.“The Orange-Glazed Shrimp here was so good, oh my god!” Scarlet has fond memories of a couple minutes ago. “That reminds me, it’s my turn to ask something! Hmm, I need time to think about it. Oh, I know! Aurora, why do you always talk yourself down?”“Huh? What?” That question caught Aurora off guard.“You have a tendency to do that, like you’re the stupidest person ever.” Scarlet clarifies.“She does it for the laughs though.” Xavi interjects. “Self-deprecating humor tends to turn a little toxic for oneself.”“I know that I’m not the worst, but I’m really, really dumb! Like, everyone has told me so at one point in my life. There isn’t anything I can do to change that, what you see is what you got.” Aurora tries to play it off as a joke. “It’s not like being smart or dumb is the end of all things, y’know?”“Not so sure about that.” Richard couldn’t help himself.“You reminded me so much of a friend I have. She never gave two fucks about school because it never went well for her, she’s not dumb, she just never tried. You actually need to try to know if you’re capable or not.” Scarlet is giving Aurora a random lecture. “I don’t want to see the same thing happen to you. So turn around that mentality of yours and try! You’ll find out that you’re not as stupid as you think you are!”“In other words, just do your best. Always works for me.” You give Aurora a thumbs up.“S-Sure.” Aurora doesn’t know what to make out of this as her cheeks turn red; they’ve known each other for so little that you get why this could be uncomfortable for her. “I guess I never thought about it this way…” Or maybe that’s exactly what she needed to hear. “Wait, this wasn’t an actual question!”“I pulled your trick on you, Rora.” Scarlet winks.“I believe it’s my turn now.” Giorsal is ready to ask a question. “Any developments with your new entity?”“N-None so far, I just took a long ass nap after coming back home yesterday… I was mad tired.” Aurora confesses.“That’s fine, I hope you had a wonderful nap.” Giorsal doesn’t seem bothered by this.
>>4460117“Now it’s finally time for my wonderful question.” You adjust your glasses, it’s your turn. “Well Rora, it’s time for us to know each other a little more intimately.” You wiggle those eyebrows.“You can ask whatever you want, Johnny…” Aurora presses her body against yours as she looks you right in the eyes.“Very well then…” You smirk, you know very well where this is going. “Why do you hide the fact you play SoL?”“Eh?!” Aurora jumps away from you.“The card game?” B-WORM wonders.“She plays?” Richard is relatively curious“No! M-My lil’ bro is the one who plays, Johnny, I told you!” Aurora is panicking.“Rora, stop lying…” You want the real answer.“What are they talking about?” Giorsal is dumbfounded.“It’s a children trading card game, surprisingly deep for what it is.” Richard explains.“I assume you play too by that description...” Xavi realizes about Richard. The detective doesn’t bother to respond.“Too? Didn’t you hear me?! I said I don’t play! Nu-huh!” Aurora wants to convince everyone to no avail.“Oh my god, she’s such a dork.” Scarlet finds this humorous.“I’M NOT!” Aurora is having a meltdown.“W-What’s the problem with playing?” Giorsal doesn’t get it.“That’s what I would like to know, it’s a pretty popular game with people of all ages.” B-WORM doesn’t understand Aurora’s reaction.“There is no problem, but it’s not something I do! Johnny completely misunderstood what he saw in my home!” Aurora won’t back down.“Why get worked up so much for a simple mistake, then?” Richard wants an explanation.“How would you react when someone tells such outlandish lies like these?!” Aurora is collapsing.“I would merely prove him wrong.” Richard doesn’t see the big deal.“Yeah, you’re a super detective or something, I’m just a twerp with a bird brain!” Aurora doesn’t know what to do.“We just talked about not putting yourself down…” Scarlet looks disappointed.“I don’t play this card game, end of the story!” Aurora refuses to keep entertaining this topic.Scarlet starts gathering the sticks once again… You’re not sure if you liked Aurora’s response…What do you do?>Show Aurora your super rare care to see how she reacts…>Let it go, continue with the game.>Write In.Who’s the next loser?>Scarlet.>B-WORM.>Richard.>Write In.What question do you want to ask?>Write In.(Last Reply of the day, we continue tomorrow.)

“End of story? Really?” You raise an eyebrow, you have an actual ace under your sleeve to show. “What do you have to say about this?!” You show your super rare card!“WOAH! OH JEEZ! That’s a rare first edition Lieutenant of Headpats!!!” Aurora got so excited in a way you’ve never seen before that she forgot her cover. Everyone is either staring at her in disbelief or unamused. Aurora slowly realized what just happened. “T-This is a misunderstanding… M-My brother… M-My brother told me about it… H-He would be r-real excited if he—”“Stop. Have some self-respect.” Richard won’t listen to Aurora’s excuses.“Not only do you play, but you’re a big expert, huh?” B-WORM doesn’t know how to feel about this.“Why do you keep lying to us?” Giorsal looks down on Aurora with pity.“Because she’s a big dork.” An all-smug Scarlet interrupts Aurora’s deflating voice.“Is nobody going to ask why Johnny is carrying those around…?” Xavi points out that you have your deck here. You’ll stay quiet because this is all about Aurora. “Anyway, what’s your problem?”“I… I…” Aurora buries her face in her arms on the table. “I’m not… I’m not a nerd!”“Are we in middle school or what? Who cares if you’re a loser or not?” Richard doesn’t get why this is happening.“I-Is middle school like that…? How terrible…” Giorsal didn’t want to hear that.“Aurora, for the last time, it’s not a big deal…” You try to calm her down. “We know that you’re not a nerd, you just like playing a card game.”“A card game for nerds though...” Scarlet is being wicked for no reason! “But there is nothing wrong with being a big nerd! It’s something that you enjoy doing!”“I agree! There is nothing wrong about being passionate about your own hobbies!” Giorsal is being positive as well.“Not sure about that. There are all types of hobbies.” Richard takes a sip of his drink.“R-Richard, we’re trying to help Aurora here.” Scarlet nudges the detective, making him spill out some of his drink. The double dick just glares at the redhead. “W-Whoops… Hehe, my bad.”“You just called her a big dork…” Xavi seems to be the only one paying real attention here.“I-I said it playfully…” Scarlet tries to defend her actions.“Aurora, if you start opening up you’ll find more people who feel the same way you do, and being part of a supporting community, just like SoL’s, is well worth it.” B-WORM knows that well since he’s a cosplayer and all.“I’m not ready for this… can we move on?” Aurora just won’t admit it.“Then to help you get ready, I propose that everyone call Aurora a big dork or nerd from this point onwards!” Scarlet wants to set up systematic bullying here.“That’s awful! No! We need to be nice to each other.” Giorsal doesn’t like this one bit.
>>4461099“This is so childish…” Richard dislikes this turn of events.“Damn, Scarlet, what’s wrong with you?” You don’t know what to make of this.“W-Why are looking at me like that? You started it all, Johnny. I’m just trying to turn this into a positive.” Scarlet finds this humorous.“S-She’s right, Johnny. I need to toughen up…” Aurora recovers some courage to agree with bubbles.“If you say so.” You scratch the back of your head.“This is wrong…” Giorsal doesn’t like this plan.“Yet amusing.” Richard chuckles.“So you admit that you play Sparkles of Luck?” B-WORM drops the golden question.“Fuck no.” Aurora drops an F-bomb for emphasis.“I’m glad that nothing got done.” Xavi smiles.“Can we move on?” Aurora takes the initiative and grabs everyone’s sticks, she’ll be the dealer now. “Here.”And the loser is… B-WORM! He doesn’t talk too much so this is the best opportunity to learn more about him! You’re not going to waste it! Sadly, you’re dead last on the totem pole…“I’m ready for action.” B-WORM flicks the stick upwards with his index finger and grabs it in one smooth motion. “Who’s first?”“I am!” Aurora appears excited to leave all that SoL talk behind her. “What does B-WORM mean?”“It’s short for The Best WORM.” B-WORM makes an extravagant pose. “It is my online tag. It doesn’t have a deeper meaning than that.”“But why a worm?” Aurora isn’t satisfied with that answer.“It’s an obscure reference from a novel I read.” B-WORM doesn’t give long explanations, huh?“Perhaps you could share it with us.” Richard is interested in reading it.“Gladly.” B-WORM is happy to share.“My turn, my turn!” Scarlet shows her stick. “How did you meet Genesis?”“She’s my childhood friend, we were next door neighbors for almost all of my school life. She’s a couple of years older than I, but I was responsible for waking her up every morning and dragging her to school.” B-WORM doesn’t have fond memories of that.“Oooh, that makes a lot of sense.” Scarlet doesn’t appear surprised by this response.“I would like to know if you’re still in contact with other members of the Assembly.” Richard raises his stick to show that it’s his turn.“I wasn’t expecting you to throw a softie, but this isn’t quite as hard hitting as I thought. I didn’t lie to you, Richard; I’m not in contact with any other members except Dudley, and from what I learned if you want to ask him something you’ll have to go through Giorsal first.” B-WORM has nothing to hide.“Is he your boyfriend?” Aurora asks Giorsal who wasn’t expecting that question, she met Dudley after all.“N-No!” Giorsal denies it immediately. “I-I don’t have any sort of relationship with that man, you’re free to contact him any time you want, Richard.”
>>4461103“Are you not lying to me, B-WORM?” Richard wants confirmation.“I don’t know what I can say to prove it to you. But I’m not lying.” B-WORM remains firm.“Very well.” Richard relents, a little disappointed that he didn’t learn more.“I’m next…” Xavi interrupts to replace this awkwardness with his own! “So B-WORM, do you feel any different?”“Excuse me, I don’t understand.” B-WORM is quite confused.“Saving Genesis was his wish, right?” Xavi looks at you for an answer.“Yeah, that’s what I recall.” You think.“My wish?” B-WORM is really confused.“Then something should happen right now.” Xavi is confused. “Maybe if I…” He brings out Naiad. The little fairy waves at you and Scarlet first, then gets too shy for the rest. Scarlet couldn’t see her so she couldn’t respond, something that disappointed the little fairy. “Naiad, he’s the one.”The little fairy looks at B-WORM for a second. She presses a button on her ship, a beam comes out and points at the eccentric guy like it’s scanning him. From the same beam, a miniature version of the stars you saw in Dream Hill comes out of his chest and slowly gets downloaded to the ship. Now Naiad’s ship has been upgraded, it has a scanner by the side! Immediately after being done, she goes back into flame form.“Could you explain what’s going on?” Giorsal demands an explanation.“Is that your ability?” Richard asks another question.“What was what?” Scarlet never saw anything.“Oh right, you couldn’t see it!” Aurora realizes, albeit too late. “Poor you. Chan, chan, chan!” Aurora condescendingly pats Scarlet’s head, she frowns in response.“Y-Yeah, I’m using my ability! Something cool should’ve happened because we saw his wish come true…” Xavi poorly explains. “I got an upgrade… Now Naiad can scan stuff… She’s not being specific. And she’s busy updating her program.”“So let me guess, we need to ask later?” You raise an eyebrow. Xavi just shrugs, he has no idea either.“That was certainly confusing.” B-WORM is as puzzled as everyone else at the table.“I ask again, do you feel any different?” Xavi wants to make sure.“No.” B-WORM is honest.“Can you explain to us right now what your ability does again?” Richard wants answers.“Should’ve asked earlier.” Xavi shrugs. “I’ll write it down later and send it through chat. It’s really not that important.”“Fine…” Richard isn’t convinced but he doesn’t want to spoil the party.“I suppose it’s my turn to ask now.” Giorsal raises her stick. “But I don’t have any questions, we talked before I let you go.”“Right.” B-WORM relaxes.“Boo! You need to ask anyway!” Scarlet pouts again.“W-Well, uhm… Oh! I got it!” Giorsal has an idea. “Can I call you Sven instead of B-WORM?”“No.” B-WORM deadpans.
>>4461105“…I-I understand.” Giorsal looks down.“Well, after that softball of a lame question. It’s my turn.” You bully Giorsal for being boring. “What got you into the entity business anyway? From what I know, they seek out people with... issues. Going through things worse than anything normal or usual. What's yours if you don't mind me asking? I want to know the reasons why we're even here, in this dumb war to begin with. I get it if you don't wanna answer. It's a tough topic after all.”“It’s a perfectly reasonable question to make, Johnny.” B-WORM is willing to answer your queries. “Dagon appeared before me and asked me to join forces to defend humanity from what was coming, I felt ill-equipped for such a task, but it would soon become apparent to both of us that nobody was prepared for this. As for the reason I was down, I don’t want to bring the mood down or bore you with details, but the business I was working on was completely decimated.”“Business?” Scarlet is curious for more details.“A small comic book store I put my heart into; I sold comics and artwork from overseas, there is a lot of material that was never translated to English that I was happy to bring here. But after an incident with a school boy, my store was decimated…” B-WORM explains.“What kind of incident?” You wonder.“I prefer not to tell, it’s pretty outlandish even by our standards. And it isn’t important either.” B-WORM looks down.“So you’re a dork too, huh?” Scarlet, queen of dorks, makes fun of B-WORM.“I profited from them as well.” B-WORM deadpans.“Can we stop calling each other names?” Giorsal asks politely.“I don’t know, it’s kinda funny.” Xavi defends bullying for some reason.“If you’re bothered, I won’t call you names, Gio!” Scarlet promises. “Same goes for everyone. Except Aurora and Johnny. And maybe Richard…”“What did I do?” Richard looks offended.“Tell me about it…” You don’t know what you did either.“You two started the bullying.” Scarlet is disappointed in you.Who’s the next loser?>Scarlet.>Richard.>Write In.What question do you want to ask?>Write In.
>>4461106>Scarlet.>Why the hardcore teasing of Aurora?
>>4461099>“Is nobody going to ask why Johnny is carrying those around…?” Xavi points out that you have your deck here. You’ll stay quiet because this is all about Aurora.Do you mean all that shit in the OP inventory here >>4438586, all those cards... they're on Johnny's person EVERY THREAD? He's just had his SoL deck with him constantly, even bringing it to missions and life-or-death moments? Are you fucking kidding me? And it took only this long for somebody to point it out? Holy shit. What a DORK.>>4461106Nice response from B-WORM. Looks like my write-in paid off. I personally want to save Richard for last because I want to write-in something to play up the "rivalry" between them. Maybe a SoL duel? For now, backing >>4461138
>>4461106>Richard.>"Why did you start investigating the cult in the first place?"
>>4461158I'll support>>4461151Can you give an example of what it would be like? I'd rather ask something about him than just challenge him
>>4461173I don't know, anon. I just wanted him and Johnny to interact more with each other. Same with entities getting the spotlight and more insight into their characters as well.
>>4461183I mean, the whole point of this is to interact with everyone and I'm enjoying a lot so far. I was just asking because I'd be willing to switch to it if I liked it
>>4461151>He's just had his SoL deck with him constantly, even bringing it to missions and life-or-death moments?It’s saved our life before and made us a shitload of cash. I’d say it’s been very worth keeping on us.>>4461106>Scarlet>How did you get so good at making my gadgets?
Aurora starts gathering the sticks for next round, she has completely taken over this part of the game now! You all grab one once again to decide the order.And the loser is… Richard! There is plenty to ask of Richard that will help you in the future, but it might not be the appropriate time to get all serious, unlike him, you can read the room. And more importantly, you’re not a dick.“So the time has finally come…” Richard sighs.“I’m going first.” Giorsal shows her really long stick with pride. “How did you end up involved in all of this, Mr. Richard? Why join the fight?”“I’d rather not tell you. Nothing personal.” Richard is a very secretive person. Guess you’re going to be the only person who’s going to know about his dead brother… err… you forgot his name, was it Mickey? That’s probably it…“I’m really more interested in knowing why you’re helping us out. And I don’t mean it as just taking down the cult, but you offered your help to the Judges as well.” Giorsal clarifies while maintaining her seriousness.“Doesn’t take a genius to realize that without you all the whole world will be in great peril. I’m part of this world as well, it’s only natural that I came to your aid.” Richard doesn’t get Giorsal’s question.“Heh, are you throwing shade at me?” B-WORM chuckles.“It wasn’t my intention.” Richard sounds apologetic.“Either way, I deserved it.” B-WORM doesn’t take it badly.“I’m not satisfied with your answer, Richard.” Giorsal doesn’t feel like it’s enough. “You don’t seem like the kind of person who would act selflessly, no offense.”“You got me all wrong then.” Richard chuckles. “I let my actions speak for me, nothing more, nothing less. It’s up to you all to draw the conclusions.”“But is there any reason you do all this?” Giorsal is being as insistent as when she questioned you before. She’s trying to judge Richard’s character.“Why would an old man plant a tree whose shade he will never sit under?” Richard makes a rhetorical question.“I don’t think that’s how the proverb goes...” Xavi is not sure.“Y-Yeah, I’m paraphrasing it…” Richard gets a little embarrassed.“So you’re the dickiest nice guy, huh?” Aurora comes to a conclusion.“…No. Don’t say it like that.” Richard glares at Aurora.“I wouldn’t have invited him if I thought he was evil or something. He’s really reliable.” In a rare moment, you defend Richard.“I try to be.” Richard nods.“I understand.” Giorsal acts like she’s taking notes or something.“Next question.” Xavi raises his stick. “D-Do you intend me to throw me in jail with the other cultists…?” It’s been a while since Xavi sounded this paranoid.“Are you hiding something else from us?” Richard raises an eyebrow.“N-No…” Xavi can’t come up with anything.
>>4461310“Then the answer is no.” Richard just shrugs it off.“T-Thanks…” Xavi sighs in relief.“I’m the next in line.” B-WORM holds his stick up. “Is there any particular reason you have trouble opening up? Is it that you actually hate us?”“I said my actions speak for me. Now ask yourself, why would I be here if I hated you all?” Richard raises an eyebrow.“To interrogate us about what we have done and what we are doing.” B-WORM has another good reason, one less paranoiac. “Not that I believe it.”“Yes, that does sound plausible.” Richard agrees with B-WORM’s reasoning. “Onto the next question.”“You didn’t fully answer mine.” B-WORM interjects.“You shouldn’t have asked 2, then.” Richard is remorseless.“Still a dick, I see.” B-WORM deadpans.“My turn.” You raise your hand. “Why did you start investigating the cult in the first place?”“I found out Giorsal was involved with them, and I needed to know why. Constance wasn’t willing to give me the information, so I had to track it on my own. The more I learned, the more I knew I had to stop them. I was actually relieved when I learned she was part of this operation.” Richard explains with ease.“H-How did you know…?” Giorsal wants to know.“After our incident at the hospital, I was able to track down one of their members. The girl Ammirati mentioned in the trial helped us bait the Behemoth out of the Grand Hospital.” Richard looks at B-WORM. “Right?”“So you didn’t waste any time even after our disagreement, huh?” B-WORM looks surprised.“It was a long day and I needed to get done as much as I could...” Richard sounds exhausted just thinking about it. Still, it doesn’t hold a candle with what you had to deal with!“Now it’s my turn, Richard!” Aurora seems excited to get involved. “Mmm, what’s your type of girl?”“I’ll tell you when I find her.” Richard spits his answer out in a second.“Sorry, Gio.” Aurora feels bad for Cloud Head.“W-What? I’m not interested in Mr. Richard!” Giorsal panics.“Next question, please.” Richard interrupts this dumb exchange of words.“I’m the last one, Richard!” Scarlet shows her tiny stick. “We have told you what we think about your attitude, but, and this is very important but, what can we do to make our presence more enjoyable around you? It should go both ways, y’know?”“I don’t understand your question.” Richard is perplexed.“What can we do to make you hate us less?” You change the wording.“You don’t need to accommodate me, I’m not going to be here much longer after this.” Richard is surprised that this is even a question.“What makes you think that I’m not going to ask for your help again?” You raise an eyebrow.
>>4461312“And if you don’t plan to come to our aid, we can totally be friends too, y’know?” Scarlet winks. “Also friends need to help each other, so you’ll have to come to help, like it or not!”“You’re so unnecessarily pushy.” Richard is not having a good time.“The possibility is still there though.” You give him a thumbs up.“My answer remains the same, you don’t have to do anything.” Richard rejects everything. “You do you, I’m fine.”“But you always look so irritated…” Even Aurora doesn’t like it.“Perhaps he lives in a perpetual state of irritation.” Xavi chuckles.“Sounds plausible, all samples indicate that.” B-WORM agrees with Xavi.“I appreciate the gesture, but I don’t find myself uncomfortable here. Despite odd attempts at humor.” Richard tries to be kind in his own way.“How dare you? I’m the funniest guy.” You deadpan.“I differ.” Richard is actually serious though.“I mean, he’s the funny guy here, c’mon Johnny, throw one of your great one liners.” Scarlet throws the ball at you.“Yes, I’m the funny guy, here is my funny joke: Bubbles.” You respond completely emotionless.“You’re right, Richard, he’s a boring douchebag.” Scarlet doesn’t even change expressions.“Frankly, it’s the best joke I’ve heard from him.” Richard deadpans as well.“C’mon! It’s not time to make fun of me!” Scarlet pouts.“Yeah, it’s time to take another stick!” Aurora recollected them while nobody was watching. How sneaky!Who’s the next loser?>Scarlet.>Write In.What question do you want to ask?>Write In.(Last Reply of the day, we finish the thread tomorrow!)
>>4461314>Scarlet.>"I never did ask you, but what was going on on your end of things when Judgement Day was happening? Feels like everybody had something serious they were going through, like fights or running or hiding out in a safe place. What about you, Scarlet?"

And the loser is… Scarlet! That’s fine, at least it wasn’t you! You can use this opportunity to make fun of her. Yeah, that’s what you will do.“It’s no biggie, I was always open to answer all your questions about me.” Scarlet doesn’t mind at all.“Good attitude to have. What’s the origin of your nickname Bubbles?” B-WORM asks without hesitation, he has the longest straw and he isn’t afraid to use it.“I retract my statement.” Scarlet doesn’t want to do this anymore, all emotion is gone from her voice.“You still need to answer my question.” B-WORM wants answers.“Johnny said it before, it’s because of my bubbly attitude… I’m a positive girl and all that.” With none of her bubbly attitude, Scarlet responds.“You’re not sounding very positive there, homegirl.” Xavi sounds skeptical.“Or honest.” Richard loves calling out everyone’s bullshit, huh?“What makes you think I’m lying?” Scarlet the liar lies shamelessly.“C’mon, Bubbles, the truth will set you free.” You wiggle those eyebrows.“…” Scarlet just stares daggers at you. You smile.“We all answered with honesty today, Scarlet. Please return us the favor.” Giorsal politely requests.“Fine, if you wanna hear it so badly, I’ll tell you. I don’t want anyone to intewwupt me!” Scarlet is not going to enjoy this! Her lisp made a little unnoticed cameo, sadly, everyone was too focused on the redhead’s words themselves to note it. “One of that dork’s perverted friends calls me Bubble butt because of my huge fat ass!” Scarlet points at you as she pouts in impotent rage. “Really funny, isn’t it? No matter how many times I told him to stop, he kept calling me Bubble butt, I hate it! I don’t have a huge ass! Yeah, I love ice cream and I eat it when I’m feeling down; and yeah, I’m probably packing up a few extra pounds thanks to it – and yeah, maybe all the extra weight is going into my butt! And there is a slight chance some of my clothes don’t fit me anymore because of that! But I’m not a Bubble Butt! You get me? You get why this is so fuckin’ stupid?”“That definitively answered my question.” B-WORM won’t admit the other half though.“So should we change her codename to Bubble butt?” Xavi jokingly asks, then he takes notice of Scarlet’s silent rage. “Maybe not, haha.” He’s nervous now.“Oh, imagine that! Eating anything you want and all going into your ass!” Aurora gets excited for some reason. “My little sister Bruna can’t stop eating and it all goes down to her belly, it’s fun to mess with it – but I know Bruna would much prefer if the extra weight added to her curves and didn’t make her round.” Aurora goes into a weird tangent. “She needs to go on a diet.” You sadly agree, but you could help her! Pretend her training is magic lessons or something.
“Is there any particular reason Bruna is overweight?” You ask Aurora since you’re close to her.“Huh, she thinks once that she hits puberty, her extra weight will disappear magically and she’ll look like Sina or me. So she wants to eat as much as she can until then.” Aurora explains. “No matter how many times I tell her that’s impossible she doesn’t listen.”“I see…”“I believe it’s my turn!” Giorsal raises her hand to ask a question. “Scarlet, how did you learn about all of this? And why did you decide to help?”“That’s two questions.” Richard can’t let anything go.“I know, but they go by better together!” Giorsal explains apologetically.“It’s whatever! No other question can humiliate me more than the last one, thanks B-WORM...” Scarlet glares at the lanky man.“I live to serve.” B-WORM deadpans.“I learned everything from that dork over there.” Scarlet points at you with disdain. “We’re friends after all, and I knew something was very off about him lately, he was always distant and he never opened up at any point. I feel bad about it now, but I stopped being his friend because I didn’t want to be around someone who didn’t want to trust me. Then he confessed to me what was happening.” Funny, you’re the one who feels bad for not telling her sooner. “And frankly, when you learn about this your life can’t go back to normal. And instead of waiting with my arms crossed, I wanted to help save the world. And Johnny is all about that, so it all worked out.”“Y-Yeah, you can’t do that…” Aurora feels bad upon hearing that.“Yeah, inconceivable…” Xavi feels guilty too.“It’s commendable that you’re putting yourself at risk like this.” Giorsal nods.“What are you talking about? He’s the one doing all the work. Just because it sounds more dangerous for me to be here since I don’t have a flame, doesn’t mean I’m incredible or anything.” Scarlet won’t take the credit, she thinks it’s all you. “I’m just sitting on my… sigh… bubble butt, waiting for him to be awesome.” Bubbles is trying to take things with humor. “I mean, you all are too…”“Those are very kind words from you, but we haven’t done enough.” Giorsal isn’t satisfied yet. “If you were in our position from the beginning, I’m sure you would’ve done more than us.”“Naaah, I don’t like to admit it, but this dork over here is the one who helped me out first, I was such a mess before.” Scarlet gives you props, then thinks it over. She’s still mad at you from the previous bullying. “Okay, I’m giving this nerd too much credit. Forget I said anything…” “You keep calling people a dork or a nerd, is that to hide the fact that you're actually the biggest dowk I've ever met?” You show your stick, it’s perfect timing! “My turn to ask.”
>>4462425“Are you really going to make fun of me using that in front of everyone?! How low!” Scarlet has had enough of your teasing. “I really touched a nerve when I called you out on your shit.” Now she’s acting all smug.“Answer the question.” You pressure.“I’m not gonna, because I know I’m not the biggest dork you have ever met.” Scarlet doesn’t buy it.“Guys, if I tell you that Scarlet was the one who begged me to wear a mask she made herself, built a secret base, and wanted the codenames because she thought all of this would be really cool, wouldn’t you think she’s super lame?” You have people here to judge.“When you say it like that, it does sound lame. Sorry.” Aurora realizes.“I wouldn’t call it lame, but I certainly would consider it nerdy. In a good way.” B-WORM agrees somewhat.“W-Why would you consider all of that lame? I don’t understand, it’s the next logical step if you want to keep your secret identity!” Giorsal doesn’t get it one bit because she’s a dork.“She told us her special ability was to spread positivity, she can’t get any lamer than that.” Richard is on your side… that’s new.“I completely forgot about that; I think Johnny has a point.” Xavi nods.“Didn’t Giorsal buy it as a real ability though?” Aurora points out.“Nice catch, Giorsal is pretty dorky.” B-WORM wants another contender in.“Huh?! T-This is not a competition!” Giorsal looks offended.“What are you guys on about? I-I’m not a nerd or a dork!” Scarlet argues like a dork.“I mean, you called me a nerd with absolutely no proof, so yeah, you’re big dork.” Aurora strikes back at the best opportunity.“Shut up, nerd!” Scarlet won’t receive slander like that.“I’m not a nerd, twerp!” Aurora is tired of her shit!“S-Stop insulting each other…!” Giorsal doesn’t want more chaos.“Can we move on?” Richard is tired of this.“That’s your catchphrase here, huh?” Xavi realizes.“I proved my point, so sure.” You’re satisfied. Scarlet is not amused.“You didn’t prove anything, you liar!” Scarlet continues her meltdown.“I’m next!” Aurora shows her stick to Scarlet. “Why are you teasing me so much today?”“Y-You’re kinda easy to tease and I thought we were becoming good friends so I had some leeway, but I shouldn’t single you out, I’m sorry.” Scarlet quickly apologizes now that she realizes she’s being mean.“Oh no! That’s fine! Make fun of me all you want, I was worried you started to dislike me for some reason.” Aurora was worried about sticking out.“I must’ve gone overboard if you had to ask, I’m sorry…” Scarlet now looks sad.“D-Don’t be sad, we’re having fun, you’re the positive girl and all!” Aurora cheers the redhead up.“Yes, more of this please.” Giorsal likes what she’s seeing.
>>4462426“A clarification once in a while helps to calm down, so I kinda agree.” You don’t want people to fight each other over meaningless things.“Hey, it’s my turn.” Xavi is up. “Can I ask a weird question?”“S-Sure.” Scarlet doesn’t know what to expect.“Don’t take it the wrong way, but you said you have a bubble butt and—”“I said that I don’t have one.” Scarlet rudely interrupts Xavi.“A-Anyway, can we see it?” Xavi nervously asks.“No.” Scarlet denies. “Pervert.”“That’s a bold request.” You raise an eyebrow, you’re pretty bold yourself but with people you already know much better than Xavi does Scarlet.“I-I’m not a pervert, I’m just curious, I never took a peek before and you guys kept talking about how big it is.” Xavi is not doing himself any favors. “I-I’m not asking her to take her clothes off, just to stand up and maybe turn around quickly… I just want to know what exactly everyone considers way too big, that’s all.” The more he goes, the more embarrassed Scarlet looks.“There are some questions one must keep to oneself, Xavier.” Giorsal didn’t like this at all.“I guess you’re right, forget I ever asked.” Xavi looks disappointed. “Am I the only one who’s curious anyway?”“I believe we all already saw it.” You nod to yourself.“Indeed.” B-WORM deadpans.“Can’t deny it.” Even Richard is shameless.“I think it looks nice.” Aurora smiles.“A-Am I the only one not looking at people’s… b-butts?” Giorsal just got embarrassed by saying the word butt…“MOVE ON!” Scarlet doesn’t want to hear this anymore.“It’s my turn to ask.” Richard is the last one. “Has Johnny told you everything about the war thus far? Every moment he experienced?”“Yes, as far as I know…” Scarlet knows that this is a tricky question.“So he trusts you that much?” Richard seems surprised.“I do. Not like anything interesting happened.” You interject. Except fighting a huge skeleton monster. “Why the question?”“I'm trying to judge how much you have changed since that incident.” Is Richard talking about the Neko stuff? Or Judgment Day? Or what? “Looking back at it, I can’t say that I don’t feel responsible.”“Huh, I see…” You don’t know how to respond.“I don’t like when they talk in code.” B-WORM feels left out.“I know, right?” Xavi agrees.“It is rude.” Giorsal is in the same group.“Sorry, I didn’t mean to.” You apologize.“Well, Johnny is totally going to be the next one now. So you can ask him all about that stuff if you wanna!” Aurora grabs the sticks but leaves the smallest one out. “So prepare yourself!”It’s basically kind of a miracle nobody repeated, but oh well… time to endure the pain.

You didn’t even get to play, but you’re the loser! Like all party games were meant to be played, no fairness in mind…“So my time has finally come at last.” You are playing with the smallest stick they left out.“Well, would you look at that? I’m first.” Scarlet has the longest stick of them all, and she’s not afraid to use it.“He has been making fun of you all day, it’s time to return the favor in kind, right?” B-WORM is hyping this up.“R-Right…” Scarlet didn’t realize that this was potentially the best opportunity to put you in your place. Sadly, you’re where you should be, at the top! Okay, you need to lower that ego stat now…“Mmm, I wonder what kind of question would unsettle Johnny?” Aurora is getting excited.“Shouldn’t be difficult, he’s not complex.” Richard finds you easy prey. “And since these two know each other very well, Scarlet won’t struggle.”“Y-Y-Yeah, he’s only a dork…” Scarlet isn’t so sure. “So tell me, Johnny. Who’s the cutest girl in the team? If you aren’t honest, I’m going to make you pay!”“Oh, oh! I want to hear it!” Aurora is excited.“…That’s it?” Richard is not amused.“Shut up! I-I just felt bad for him…” Scarlet pretends that she’s a kind woman. “We can make fun of him once he gives us a cop out.” Scarlet is confident that you don’t have an answer.“Uh, I think it’s Giorsal.” You point at the Judge who was busy drinking her orange juice.“Eh?!” Scarlet’s face drops.
>>4463388“M-Me?!” Giorsal starts panicking as she almost drops her glass on the table. Once she regains her composure, she hides behind the glass all flustered. “Y-You unruly man, you’re just making fun of me!” She can’t even look at your direction while saying this.“Your reaction was adorable just now…” Xavi points out.“Are you sure, Johnny…?” Aurora looks worried and uncertain of herself.“Don’t take him seriously, he’s just giving the most outlandish answer he can think of just to spite us!” Scarlet believes she’s seeing right through you.“Y-Yeah… an outlandish answer…” That hurt Giorsal…“N-No! I mean, you two aren’t that close! S-So obviously he would choose you or else it would be pretty embarrassing for him!” Scarlet tries to fix it, albeit poorly.“So, you say I can’t consider Giorsal cute?” You raise an eyebrow.“Don’t put those words in my mouth! Giorsal is our adorable cloud head.” Scarlet is tired of everything backfiring on her.“S-So, y-you think I’m cute…?” Giorsal looks down to her skirt. “Nobody has called me cute before…” Then Giorsal realizes. “What’s wrong with me? I don’t care about your opinion on this matter! I don’t want to be part of your perverted thoughts!”“H-Hey…” You’re not that bad, are you? Maybe you’re becoming too bad…“I’m glad we didn’t get that kind of question.” Xavi sighs in relief.“What do you mean? It’s evident who the most attractive one here is.” Richard doesn’t get it.“But the question was who he considers the cutest, perhaps he would change his tune if asked who the most attractive girl here is.” B-WORM explains.“Ooooh, then I was getting worried for nothing!” Aurora relaxes.“I’m curious about what you would say about us in his place.” B-WORM responds.“Huuh…” Aurora really doesn’t want to tell.“Don’t wanna know, my self-esteem is already low enough” Xavi doesn’t wanna hear it.“Have some confidence…” Richard shakes his head.Easier said than done, Richard. Easier said than done…The next question you’re going to receive is…Do you have any regrets about leaving your old group?>“No, not at all. They didn’t weigh me down, but it feels nice being part of a team who all work for the same objective.” You left them for a reason…>“Yeah, at least they didn’t destroy my goddamn van.” You will never let this go. Never.>“Kinda? I feel kinda bad because I like them and I couldn’t see things working out. But I feel like I ended up picking the right choice after all we’ve done.

“So I’m next.” Richard pulls out his stick, yep that’s the 2nd longest one. His are usually the toughest questions, so you’re kind of glad to get him out of the way earlier. “Do you have any regrets about leaving your old group?” That’s a simple question…“Kinda? I feel kind of bad because I like them and I couldn’t see things working out. But I feel like I ended up picking the right choice after all we’ve done.” You are completely honest. “Also, it’s not like I’m not friends with them anymore or anything. I’ll help them out if they need me.”“I don’t think him going out of his way to help people is going to change any time soon.” Scarlet smiles.“So your decision to leave was result-oriented?” Richard wants a clarification.“I don’t want to force anyone to do something dangerous, that simple.” You shrug. “Saving the world is not easy.”“So you’re still trying to throw yourself at the wolves and expect to come out on top based on nothing?” That’s the side of Richard you didn’t miss.“It’s different now; I know what I want, I know what I need to do, and if I don’t – I figure it out first before making a move.” You argue. “I’m not saying I invented the wheel or anything, I’m just using it.”“Yeah, you’re right.” Richard seems satisfied. “Not a fan of your analogy, but you’ve certainly changed, it’s hard to notice from the outside; but you’ve done well.” Richard acknowledges your progress. “I’m still iffy on some details of your method of working.”“Hey, if you of all people think I’ve done something right, it means I’m doing great.” You joke.“If he fails to acknowledge the massive feat of tearing down the cult, I think it’s not about his standards being too high, he would have to be plainly unfair to you.” B-WORM gets in the way to support you.“Am I getting this wrong or is Dick Dick saying Johnny is incompetent? Or, er, was?” Aurora wants a clarification.“Yes, I am.” Richard clarifies. “A-And don’t call me dick dick…”“It’s true that we don’t know much about Johnny.” Xavi points out. “At first I thought he was like 10 times more competent, like an action movie star or something. He appeared way too capable, enough to bring anyone down, but he’s no different than any of us...”“Let’s not exaggerate, he’s still cool.” Scarlet feels like Xavi is throwing way far down the curve. “F-For a dork, I mean.”“Damn right he is! He decided to help me in like 5 minutes and saved me just like that!” Aurora won’t forget that. “He even saved my mom just because!”
>>4463579“I wasn’t the only one who did that though.” You look at B-WORM, he acknowledges with a nod. “I accomplished none of the things I did alone, don’t forget that.”“I’m just glad I listened to you. Now thanks to you, Ethempress doesn’t cast so many shadows on my decisions.” Giorsal smiles.…Huh, you tend to forget how nice it feels to be acknowledged this way.The next question you’re going to receive is…What’s your next move? You have any objectives now?>“I’m not prepared to answer, I feel like I need to wait for things to develop.”>“I feel there are many unanswered questions about Lloydington’s involvement in this war.”>“There are so many little things I need to deal with first that it’s not even funny...”>Write In.
>>4463585>>“I feel there are many unanswered questions about Lloydington’s involvement in this war.”
>>4463585>“I feel there are many unanswered questions about Lloydington’s involvement in this war.”
>>4463585>“I feel there are many unanswered questions about Lloydington’s involvement in this war.”Cult is down, white flames next? Sounds good, plus prepares Mafia CotF GordonJr. and other faction plotlines
>>4463585>“I feel there are many unanswered questions about Lloydington’s involvement in this war.”We also have a bunch of little stuff too.
“Oh, my turn to ask!” Aurora is happy to be next in line. “Uhm, what’s your next move? You have any objectives now? I wanna keep helping, so I want to be mentally prepared for what’s coming.”“I feel there are many unanswered questions about Lloydington’s involvement in this war.” You know that there is something iffy going on with that guy, you aren’t sure why – you remember the time you saw him doing one of his rallies, and you saw no flame on him. But he coincidentally escaped prison on Judgment Day and gave his shitty speech. You know there is something there.“The candidate? That Lloydington?” B-WORM looks fairly surprised by your statement.“H-He’s kinda of a big shot, isn’t he?” Aurora just realized that.“He’s running against Gordon, so probably.” Xavi is a little surprised.“You are suspicious of him as well…” Richard is interested in your future plans. “Any reason in particular, or just a hunch?”“Probably the most well justified hunch I’ll ever have.” You don’t have proof or doubts. Well, Dream Hill should count as proof, right? Too long to explain now...“As a judge, I shouldn’t say this, but you two are onto something…” Giorsal is the least impartial judge you know.“Oh right, you're super important! You can tell us all about that bad guy!” Aurora forgot how important Giorsal’s role is.“I’m sorry, but everything I’ve discovered about the players was within my means. The cloaking device we used for the meeting didn’t affect us, I could clearly see Lloydington during our meetings. Aside from their faces, I don’t know much about the participants. I could track them down while they are sleeping, but it’s not as simple as you might think, we can’t distinguish what flame belongs to who.” Giorsal clarifies. “I’ll work hard to provide you with more information.”“Huh, but I saw no flame on him.” You point out.“How peculiar, I’ll look into it.” Giorsal nods to herself.“We know so little of him, where are we going to start looking?” Scarlet is thinking ahead.“We don’t have to jump right into it now, we still need to wait for things to settle down.” You can’t move too fast. Though, there is always that computer you got from Dorothy that you never checked out.“You can resort to asking that repugnant informant for help, she works with Uccelli after all…” Richard is talking about Neko. You can see the disgust in his face.“W-We’ll see.” You’ll make your move when you see an opportunity.“Planning ahead, already… You guys move too fast.” Xavi feels stressed just thinking about it.“S-Sorry, I was the one who asked…” Aurora feels a tiny bit guilty. But it is something you all needed to clarify.
>>4463660The next question you’re going to receive is…Can you tell us what got you into the entity business?>Tell them your full backstory with details!>Tell them about your first encounter with Bastet onwards, the day you saw Nina’s flame and shit!>Be vague about the whole ordeal, just tell them what you think is necessary.

>>4463662>Tell them your full backstory with details!Being invisible in a human way for so long, triple parental abandonment, loss of all hope, doing things on a whim, wanting to not do much of anything with the faction in the war (a.k.a. laming it out) until Neko stabbing, only using Philonune's power enough times to be counted on one hand from all the way since the contract was made up to the moment Johnny had to hide from his sister trying to incapacitate him by force - then using the invisibility a fuckton, despite (now that he thinks about it) a certain nagging feeling that it might relate to the way he suffered up until the war.

“I believe it’s my turn again.” Giorsal shows her straw to everyone, albeit a little more uncomfortable than in other occasions. “I thought this might be an uncomfortable question as it's very similar to the one you made to Mr. B-WORM.”“You want to know the reason why he got into the entity business or something like that?” B-WORM clarifies the type of question you made to him.“Yes, and like he said as well, I’ll understand if he doesn’t wish to answer.” Giorsal is looking quite serious.“For a second I thought you wanted to ask me if I was joking earlier about you being cute…” You jest.“T-There is no reason for me to ask such a thing, I have absolutely no interest in your opinion related to these matters!” Giorsal is easy to tease.“Sorry, it was a joke before things get heavy.” You admit. “I guess I really don’t mind telling you guys my boring story, can I bore you guys with the details or...?”“Feel free to talk as much as you want.” Giorsal sounds very understanding.“I’ll order some drinks for everyone, so the owner of the establishment doesn’t kick us out. All on me, of course.” B-WORM asks the waiter to come over… Predictably, Giorsal wanted to pay for her drink, but B-WORM refused anyone who wanted to do so.And so, The Ridiculous and Sad Tale of Johnny Ando was told… How your mother parted to the skies, the dark plot behind her accident and the involvement of your stepfather, and the empty years living with your biological father until Bastet put an actual start to this wacky adventure that changed your life.For whatever reason, the more you relive these depressing memories, the easier it gets for you to go through them. Maybe you’re getting used to opening up to people? Rehashing material is easier than trying to come up with everything on the spot… But you’re not sure if it’s just that, it doesn’t feel like it’s a storytelling problem at all, you took less time to tell the whole story. But who knows? It certainly helped that nobody laughed like a certain someone at this very table did once…Yeah, of course you got questions about if your mother really spun like that, but I mean, who hasn’t casted doubts on that particular part of the tale?“I’m so sorry, Johnny!” Aurora is moved by your sad tale of… sadness? After leaving her soda can to the side, Rora gives you a motherly hug just like Holly’s!“A napkin?” B-WORM offers Giorsal who is a sea of tears.“T-Thank you…” Giorsal cleans them up from her face.“Johnny…” Scarlet is heartbroken for you in a way you haven’t seen before, she’s just holding her glass all shocked.“Wait, you didn’t know…?” Xavi mutters to himself as he didn’t expect this from Scarlet. Xavi already knew, so he isn’t as affected as the others.
>>4467769“My tale pales in comparison to yours…” B-WORM feels bad about this.“It’s not competition, relax.” You turn your head to answer. “You guys are kinda overreacting a lil’ bit if I’m honest.”“Ugh, I hate when you say stuff like that, I just wanna hug you, you idiot!” Scarlet pouts.“You learned about your stepfather’s doings in this case recently?” Richard doesn’t remember that part of the story.“Yeah.” You escape Aurora’s embrace to answer, then you adjust your glasses. “Like the day after I told you.”“Is there anything Johnny can do to bring his stepfather to justice?” B-WORM wants justice.“I need to review the evidence to see if it’s worth pursuing, but I don’t know if Johnny is willing to take him to justice.” Richard briefly clarifies.“I would need to ask my sister, but he’s at the very bottom of priorities right now.” You don’t wanna think about it.“Thank you for being so honest with us, I appreciate it and I’m sorry for your loss.” Giorsal regained her composure.“It’s all good. I just want to be as open and honest as possible with you guys.” You scratch the back of your head.“It’s a nice gesture, I won’t forget it.” B-WORM nods.“Y-Yeah, but I didn’t want to bring down the mood, let’s go to the next question.” You don’t like staying on this topic for long at all…The next question you’re to receive is…If you win the whole thing, what are you going to wish for?>“My van getting fixed.”>“I just want to go on as normal.”>“Better sight.”>Write In.
>>4467770>>“I just want to go on as normal.”
>>4467770>“I just want to go on as normal.”
>>4467770>“I just want to go on as normal, maybe improve my eyesight on the side.”
>>4467770>“I just want to go on as normal, maybe improve my eyesight on the side.”>"Maybe mom too."
>>4467770>“I just want to go on as normal.”Big no on the wishing for Mom back thing
“Very well.” B-WORM shows his straw, the second to last question you’re going to receive. How exciting. “If you happen to win this whole thing, what are you going to wish for?”“Huh, I just want to go on as normal.” You don’t have a super grand wish, nope, not at all… “Maybe improve my eyesight on the side…”“That’s reassuring, yet disappointing.” B-WORM is having conflicted emotions.“I like the glasses too.” Aurora agrees.“That’s not what I meant.” B-WORM shakes his head in disagreement.“Can we even go on as normal after everything that has happened?” Xavi seems to have asked himself these questions before.“I really hope so…” Aurora is worried.“Of course we can!” Scarlet has no doubts on her end.“With what we accomplished yesterday, the whole country is going to enter a new period, different from the one we just were. Which was different from where we were before Judgment day. And so on. The balance of power is shifting constantly.” Richard is fairly relaxed about it. “A completely different world awaits us at the end of this ordeal, and we keep moving forward to make sure it’s not a hellhole.”“Y-Yeah, that…” Scarlet isn’t sure if Double Dick is on her side or not.“Then I imagine your wish isn’t much different from Johnny’s.” B-WORM deduces from Richard.“Why would I care about his eyesight?” Richard raises an eyebrow.“Again, that’s not what I meant.” B-WORM doesn’t get why people care about your problems.“Why were you disappointed in his wish, if you don’t mind me asking, Mr. B-WORM?” Giorsal wants the same clarification as you do. You didn’t want to interrupt the conversation’s flow.“I expected something… grander.” B-WORM poses.“I believe it’s riveting hearing someone with no such aspirations from this mayhem.” Giorsal is tired of hearing crazy people. “Are you that kind of person, B-WORM? When I questioned you, you didn’t appear to be.”“It’s a troubling decision to make, isn’t it? No matter what your beliefs are, this is once in a lifetime opportunity to change everything. I feel like it would be irresponsible for me just to discard it without giving it a second thought.” B-WORM argues. “I know I’m not fully prepared to make a decision now, but who knows what I could learn later. Imagine, for example, we could get rid of all the environmental problems in the whole world instead of continuing just like we are. We would, in theory, be in a better world.”“I understand what you’re trying to say.” Giorsal is learning something new.“But what if, after everything we do to stop this, we end up with a better world anyway!” Scarlet is being really positive here. “We won’t need to change anything, because we already did.”“That could happen…?” Xavi doesn’t believe so.“Why wouldn’t it?” Scarlet doesn’t get Xavi’s concern.
>>4467943“Wondering what-ifs is not going to get us anywhere.” Richard doesn’t see the point. “Even B-WORM’s theory is flawed. We only would delay the problem, the causes wouldn’t be fixed.”“I mean you could just wish that the environment never gets worse or something.” Scarlet doesn’t get his point.“That’s impossible... Besides, I’m very iffy on the details about how this wish fulfillment is going to work. The entities don’t seem to know how exactly any of this works.” Richard just crashed this party with no survivors.“So the question is pointless?” Aurora wonders. You don’t think it was…“Better make another one then.” Xavi pulls his stick. You already knew that he’s the last one…!And the final question is:What’s your most unforgettable moment since receiving your entity?>Fighting a Giant Skeleton Monster.>Getting stabbed by a schizophrenic nerd for being a dumbass.>Being betrayed by your own little sister.>Punching Bernie in the face.>Dumpstering Rise and transforming her into a smug machine.>Making a Magic show for kids.>Calling Giorsal flat.>Fucking your teacher twice.>Meeting Philonune.>Watching one of your closest friends die in your arms.>Adopting a Fat Cat.>Tragically leading a bully to get run over by a police car.>Write In.

>>4467944>Dumpstering Rise and transforming her into a smug machine.>Fighting a Giant Skeleton Monster.These two are kinda related
“From what you told me, you’ve done a lot during these past few months, so I want to know.” Xavi tries to sound like some radio interviewer. “What’s your most unforgettable moment since receiving your entity?”“But your story started earlier than that, partner.” Philonune makes a rare comment.“Since when did this turn into an interview?” You act confused.“Well since this is the last question and everyone asked what I wanted to know, I needed a way to make this interesting.” Xavi is way too honest sometimes.“Hmmm… I wonder. I need some time to think.” You kinda wish you had a video montage so you don’t forget anything.“We just beat the cult, that has to be up there somewhere, right?” Aurora is kind of amazed that you have to think about it.“He has made some questionable decisions, most unforgettable doesn’t mean it has to be positive.” Richard seems to think you’ll pick that moment with Neko, huh? The consequences of that were far bigger than you’ll ever imagine… You won’t forget what happened Bradford.“I hope he doesn’t use this opportunity to make fun of me again.” Giorsal is ready for your cheekiness despite not feeling like making fun of her or anyone else for that matter, and you could, you have TONS of ammunition.“I’m sure for most of us the events we survived during the first Judgment Day will stay with us for the rest of our lives.” B-WORM thinks fighting a giant skeleton monster is up there and… y’know… Osgood.“Johnny has helped a bunch of people, honestly it doesn’t need to be something really flame related.” Scarlet is thinking about the bunch of weirdos you’ve interacted with like Trent, Matilda, Nariko, Ajna and many others. You’ve met so many people…“My biggest moment since meeting Naiad was turning against the cult and helping Johnny. I’m glad everything turned out this way.” Xavi thinks.“Since meeting Ethempress? Mmm, I did have to beat Gordon Sr. for the role of leader. It was pretty intense.” Giorsal mutters to herself.“The Behemoth?” B-WORM asks Richard with a certain air of cheekiness.“The Behemoth.” Richard agrees that that was pretty bad. You wonder why, it’s not like anyone ended up injured or anything…“For me it’s beating up the cult…” Scarlet feels left out because nobody else considers it their most unforgettable memory…“Do I have a moment?” Aurora thinks this through. “Who am I kidding? Learning what he did changed everything…” Rora won’t forget her little brother’s mischievous moments…“Hey, he asked me… Why are you all responding?” You don’t want to be rude but it needs to be stated, moreso because everyone is ignoring each other. You wanna know more about what happened to them! “For me personally, it was dumpstering Rise and transforming her into a smug machine.”“Dumpstering?” Xavi wants to know more.
>>4468089You give everyone the abridged version of the events that lead to the birth of the Yu Yan you know and love. You put special focus on the part where you threw the garbage on her.“I already knew that.” Richard, the party pooper, exclaims. He didn’t say that before and he knows some parts of your stories!“W-Wait, if Giorsal takes the flame back I’m going to forget everything!?” Aurora gets all worried.“No, if Giorsal fucks up, you can potentially lose your memories for a little bit.” You clarify.“There is no ‘if’. I won’t, it’s too easy.” It’s a peculiar contrast seeing Giorsal be so confident about her abilities as a judge compared to her normal reactions.“Hold it, you’re the one responsible for getting rid of the leader of the terrorist group…?” B-WORM didn’t know you were capable of that.“Huh, yeah, I kinda forget how big of a deal she was since it kinda happened.” You scratch the back of your head. Trent helped you there too, good times.“A leader with no influence. She wasn’t as threatening as she once was.” Richard puts down your accomplishments.“But that begs the question, how much did this guy actually do under everyone’s noses?” B-WORM is in shock. “And we thought you were a joke…” He feels like a complete fool.“Not much, I didn’t do anything that important on my own. Ammirati is the first actual threat I’ve dealt with, and I couldn’t have done it alone.” You remind them of your achievements.“You keep saying that, but how much of that is true?” B-WORM chuckles.“All of it is.” You won’t take any more unnecessary credit. Hell, without Vivienne, Carol and Emily; everything inside the Dark Church could’ve gone terribly! Funnily enough, the couple of times you dealt with someone completely alone it ended up awfully… Both with Flint and Neko. Henry is the only you beat on your own, but that’s only Henry, he barely counts.“If you have some spare time one of these days, I would want to hear everything you have done, Johnny.” Giorsal formally requests.“It’s crazy stuff, really!” Scarlet gets excited just thinking about it.“That’s the last of the questions, unless we want to keep going.” Richard notices.“We all went through it, so I don’t think we should continue.” Xavi points out.“It was really fun, I learned so much about you guys! But it wouldn’t hurt you if you could explain some stuff in more detail! I was hella lost sometimes.” Aurora shakes her head.That made a couple of hours fly by very quickly…What do you do?>Return home and rest. You deserve it.>Go for one round of Ice Cream for everyone as dessert before dropping everyone home.>Maybe you spend time with one of the members after this.

>>4468090>Go for one round of Ice Cream for everyone as dessert before dropping everyone home.>>4468421>>4469108>>4469166I support the visiting Ajna idea
You guys chatted for a little bit longer until someone noted it was getting late, you’re not going to name any names but he tends to show dickish behavior. After that, you proposed to go for a round of Ice Cream with everyone for dessert before dropping them home. They all agreed to have dessert together outside of this dump!…You feel like you’re forgetting something you really wanted to do, but you can’t help it if it was that forgettable!Reunited inside the van with everyone’s sweet selection in hand, you’re getting comfortable near the Jackey Frosties you went for yesterday just before your mission. But this time, Richard actually bought an Ice Cream instead of just drinking more coffee, so that’s good.“We’re back where it all began, huh?” Xavi mentions the obvious callback.“Why this place again? I don’t understand.” Richard isn’t that much of a fan.“Ice cream just makes everything better, duh.” Scarlet makes a well-researched argument…“This decision was so out there, it made me relax the first time we met. A nice ice breaker.” B-WORM confesses.“Just don’t let Giorsal drop hers again.” You won’t forget that.“I-I’m being careful!” Giorsal won’t let this happen again.“You have something right next to your mouth, riiiiight here.” Aurora helps clean up Giorsal’s face. The judge was too dumbfounded to stop her or say anything. “Like brand new.”“I like that we’re all comfortable with each other.” You point out after watching Aurora do that.“Perhaps a little too comfortable…” Richard isn’t sure if this is a good thing.“For a hastily made team, it’s quite remarkable.” B-WORM agrees with you. “Though, I don’t think this is the last we’ll see from this partnership.”“That’s the spirit!” Scarlet smiles.“Under the right circumstances, everything is possible.” Richard is not against the idea.“Yeah, let’s all work together again.” Aurora is up for it.“Before I forget, please all go to bed early tonight!” Giorsal requests.“Tonight?” Xavi finds this odd.“Yes, I delayed it as much as I could, but we have important news to deliver.” The leader of the Judges will be on duty tonight.“Why the delay?” Richard is curious.“It would’ve disrupted our plans for infiltrating the dark church, it’s all going to be clear to you later.” Giorsal is acting enigmatic all of the sudden.“Why keep it a secret?” Scarlet pouts! She knows she won’t be able to see it.“It’s within our rules to keep Judge related matters secret.” Giorsal apologetically responds.“Wait, I’m going to be called as well? Cool!” Aurora didn’t think about that.“It’s not cool, it’s just weird... You’ll understand later.” Xavi isn’t a fan. “Just don’t forget to wear your pajamas.”
>>4469489“It would be wise if you could drop us at our homes now.” Richard is hurrying up the process.“Aww… I can’t believe we’re actually at the end of this.” Scarlet wanted this to continue.“We have to keep going with our normal lives. I have important work to do, I can’t let your efforts go to waste.” Richard is one responsible boy.“Yay… School…” You’re feeling disappointed just thinking about it.It’s close to 10 PM… You might need to call it quits once you get home.What do you do?>Go back to your apartment all defeated and go to sleep immediately.>Spend some extra time awake at your apartment to keep relaxing.>Make a quick visit to Ajna!>Write In.(Only reply of the day because of personal reasons, we start earlier tomorrow.)

“Our well-earned celebration has come to an end.” B-WORM sentences, putting the final nail in the coffin.“I had a lot of fun, fun, fun!” Aurora is all bubbly.“It was way better than what we did yesterday!” Scarlet had a lot of fun as well. Of course she did, she’s stuffing herself with ice cream… “Remember to keep up with the Chat-Now! group we have!”“I’ll keep you guys updated about the cases.” Richard makes a promise.“Again, don’t forget to go to sleep early!” Giorsal doesn’t want to wait that long to make the meeting.“Uh, I’ll try.” You’re a busy man after all.“So who was first again?” Xavi forgot where he needs to go now to bring everyone home.And so, everyone was delivered home or a place close enough to it! Nothing important was discussed during the trip back, with how much everyone talked earlier, there wasn’t the need to keep going on about other issues – just a nice trip back home.You and Xavi are back at your apartment building, he gave you back the van’s keys since the machine is actually yours and all, and he didn’t want to be responsible for it after the still confusing incident these idiots don’t want to tell you about. You wish him a good night and you two part ways to your own respective apartments.As you are fumbling around with your keys outside of the door, one part of your head thinks you should check on Ajna, it was only a couple of days ago, but you need to know if she has evolved for the better or worse… Or regress… Regress sounds like a better word if things got worse. Why are you thinking this? You need to knock on the door, if she is trying to get better, you don’t need to text her first. It’s kinda late, so it’ll be a short visit……You wait for a short while, but the door opens! The chain lock remains, and you can see the eyes of your easily perturbed adorable neighbor. She remains frozen for some reason, but having her eyes fixed on you is the only reason you aren’t panicking.“Hey there, I came to check on you.” You smile.“…” Ajna is still frozen in time.“Y-You in there, Ajna?” You’re getting worried. Did you trigger another episode?!“W-Wait…!” Ajna shuts the door in one second, you hear her running away from the door. After what shouldn’t be more than a couple of minutes, Ajna reopens the gap again. “H-Hey, there…” Her speech has gradually improved again!How do you respond?>“Just doing a quick check up on you since it’s late, how are you doing?” Keep things simple.>“Can I come in? I’m not going to take much of your time. Wanna see how you’re doing.” A more intimate checkup might be necessary.>“Feeling better than last time?” Get straight to the point.>Write In.

>>4470341>>4470344I'll change to "can we come in?"
“Can I come in? I’m not going to take much of your time. Wanna see how you’re doing.” You politely ask as you think a more intimate checkup might be necessary. She’s acting strange.“Oh… mhm.” The absentminded Ajna just realized that talking this way might seem rude. She fully opens the door for you. “C-Come in…”“Thank you.” You make your way inside.You don’t remember this place being decorated last time, it has some things hanging on the walls related to the hobbies she told you about that other time. Also, there is a nice aroma floating around, you don’t know what it is though. It appears that the interior gets better at the same time Ajna does.Now you lay your eyes back on Ajna, she’s wearing a long dress and a jacket, she doesn’t look as healthy as a normal person but for her standards it’s pretty good – you were thinking that what happened the other day might have affected her negatively, but that isn’t the case. Ajna disappears into the kitchen and comes back with mint tea for you and herself.“H-H-Here.” Ajna wants to be a good host.“T-Thanks.” You really didn’t want this level of hospitality. “Woah, Ajna, you’re doing so much better than I thought. I’m proud of you.”“I-It’s not d-d-difficult to be here at home.” Ajna won’t accept your words of praise easily. She digests one of her pills and drinks her tea in one swing...“Don’t undermine yourself.” You think this is awesome. “Has Craig been around here lately?”“Y-Yes, but today I-I asked h-him n-not to come here as often…” Ajna is not very comfortable explaining this right now. “I-I think I n-need s-some space to get better.”“Oh, so maybe I should go?” You jest.“N-No, visits are fine, but he did the house c-chores too. I j-just wanted to be more s-self-sufficient…” Ajna nods to herself. If you didn’t know any better you would think Craig is her caretaker. “S-Sorry again, f-for w-what happened the other day…”“Huh, it’s fine. Ruby doesn’t hold it against you either, so if you want to come to visit, the door is always open.” You reassure her that everything is fine.“Y-You’re being too nice…” Ajna is acting very nervous for some reason. “I-I have s-something for you…” Ajna pulls out some kind of controller.“Huh?” You didn’t expect any presents!From her room, a little drone appears carrying two gift boxes in an elaborate way to hand them to you. The little machine deposits them on the table, then Ajna turns it off…“T-These are for you and Ruby… as an apology. Red for you, blue for Ruby...” Ajna still feels really guilty about that. Shouldn’t the red one be for Ruby? It fits her better... “Woah, I didn’t know you had one of those.” You’re fairly impressed, though isn’t it dangerous to fly one of those in closed spaces? To be fair, she has perfect control of it.
>>4470540“I-I f-forgot to show it to you t-the other day.” Ajna laments things not going as planned. “I’ve been p-practicing since I bought it, t-they are really cheap...”She seems to like the fact you’re interested in this silly machine.How do you respond?>“I might get myself one.” Show interest because you’re kind of interested.>“You’re doing pretty well for yourself, I’m really happy. Well, now I must leave, I’ll visit you again one of these days.” Promise another visit before leaving.>“It’s not safe to fly them around inside the apartment, you know?” She can’t forget about safety measures!>Write In.(You will not miss the meeting unless you choose to not go to sleep at all tonight.)
>>4470545>>“I might get myself one.” Show interest because you’re kind of interested.
>>4470545>“I might get myself one.” Show interest because you’re kind of interested.Fuck yeah, drones are the coolest
>>4470545>“I might get myself one.” Show interest because you’re kind of interested.
>>4470545>“I might get myself one.” Show interest because you’re kind of interested.>Any recommendations?
“I didn’t know that. I might get myself one.” You show genuine interest. You could use it for your missions“S-Some comments I read warned p-people not to buy one if you live in Pokyo Lokyo…” Ajna alerts you that something is going on. “T-They said flying them w-will get them destroyed, hence the m-miniscule price.”“Huh? Does it have anything to do with the N.U. guys outside?” Maybe the guy who shot Amelia might be involved…“S-Some of c-comments are months old…” Ajna doesn’t think that’s the reason. “I w-wonder what the reason is… They mention s-something about Crocodiles, but t-those don’t fly.” Ajna is deep in thought. “O-Oh, I didn’t w-want to d-discourage you… I-I-I-It would be f-fun if both of us have o-one. Hmm, Hmm.”“Do you want to race?” You read that stuff like that happens here for some reason.“Y-Yeah, t-that’s a delightful i-idea.” Ajna is excited by the prospect of racing. “B-But it isn’t as e-easy at it l-looks.”“It doesn’t look easy to me.” You shake your head, you know your limits.“W-Want to try it…?” Ajna wants to lend you her controller. “O-Outside, I mean…”Not counting that it’s already late for you to be here, it’s dark outside too, that would be difficult for your first try…What do you do?>“Huh, I don’t want to break yours.” Reject the idea!>“It’s too late and too dark to even try now. Maybe next time.” It’s just a bad idea all around right now.>“Sure, let’s fly this thing.” You want to do this! [Hard Roll][Knowledge Based]>Write In.

“Sure, let’s fly this thing.” You want to give it a shot, and since she already knows that you don’t know shit about it, she can’t complain if you end up destroying it, right? You don’t actually want to destroy it, it’s just a possibility.“I-I know you’re going to like it.” Ajna feels really confident about this. So confident that her fidgeting has slowed down.And so, after putting a coat on, you left her apartment and now are in the same place you two had a snowball fight together. You hope nothing dangerous happens here like that time, or else you’re going to feel like you two are cursed or something.Ajna does a good job explaining how the controls work and, without losing modesty, you think they’re pretty straightforward and shouldn’t be an issue. It has a little screen for you to see directly what the drone is seeing, and has a special controller for the grip it has installed, and some lights you can turn on and off to see in the dark. In short, there is no good reason for you to screw this up.“Here I go.” You press the buttons necessary to get this thing going.“B-Be c-careful.” Ajna is fidgeting again.Getting it off the ground was pretty easy, as it is suspended in the air, Ajna gives you a couple of indications that help you ease the nerves – the nerves of destroying something that doesn’t belong to you, because you’re really chill otherwise. If you think about it, these aren’t really nerves, just a sense of responsibility over protecting something someone kindly lent to you. Just thinking about this too much is a simple indication that flying this thing is going really smooth and you don’t have anything to say besides that you’re having fun.“Y-You’re really good.” Ajna is pleasantly shaking now.“Thanks.” You’re enjoying this more than you expected, which is a lot!As the minutes go by, you start to notice the buzzing of another one of these, you look around and see another drone painfully colored in some tacky way, menacingly come closer to yours. As you notice their objective was to actually tear down yours, you evade his pathetic attempt at leaving you on the ground by crash landing – and safely put your drone on the ground.“W-What was his problem…?” Ajna feels cheated out of having a perfect time.“I don’t know, but I think we found our sharks.” You say in an ominous but cool away.“Y-You m-m-mean the c-crocodiles?” Ajna corrects you.“That’s what I said.” You won’t be cheated out of your cool line.What do you do?>Investigate who these Crocodiles are. You have encountered a new mystery that needs to be solved!>Ignore this happened for now and keep having a nice time with Ajna.>Thank Ajna for the good time and go to sleep after leaving her inside her apartment.>Write In.+1 Knowledge for Driving a Drone perfectly.

Maybe it wasn’t such a cool line. You should let this go.“Despite that, everything went fine, I’ll look into buying one of these in the immediate future. Let’s go back to your apartment.” You grab the drone.“Mhm…” Ajna gets by your side while looking at the sky, wondering where that damn alligator went.Back in Ajna’s apartment, the fidgeting menace puts the drone away with the controller, then invites you to get yourself comfortable.“I’ve been wanting to ask, you were strengthening yourself to go out by coming over to my place, but you don’t have any issues going out with me. What gives?” You genuinely wonder.“I-I f-feel safe around y-you.” Ajna confesses. “S-Same with Craig.”“But wasn’t Double J watching you that time? You don’t trust him?” You are going to ignore his role in today’s trial for now.“…I-I s-suppose I was c-cheating.” Ajna realizes. “B-But m-my issue is that I c-can’t take the i-initiative.”“So you’re saying you don’t mind being dragged around?” You need to know more so you don’t put too much stress on her.“I-I t-think I’ll panic i-if I go somewhere I’m not that f-familiar with…” Ajna knows her limits.“That’s fine, now I can plan ahead what we can do next time.” You need to know the possibilities.“I’m g-glad, a-after what h-happened with R-Ruby, I d-didn’t t-think you were g-going to s-show up s-so soon… or at a-all.” Ajna has some hiccups between her words.“Why would I do that?” “B-Because I’m m-miserable to be w-with.” Ajna has a terrible self-image.“Would a person who knows how to play the trumpet be miserable to be with?” The answer is that it’s possible, but she’s the exception!“Pft… hahaha…” The fragile girl gives you a carefree chuckle. “M-Most of them are.”After this little depressing turn, it’s good that the conversation made a shift!What do you do?>Ask Ajna if she wants to come over to your apartment and meet up with Ruby again next time.>Ask Ajna if you can open your present now.>Ask Ajna if she can learn about these Flying Crocodiles, to keep an eye on them.>Ask Ajna if she wants to eat something.>Write In.

“Quick question, do you mind coming over to my apartment one of these days to meet up with me and Ruby to have some fun?” You ask politely. “You don’t have to if you aren’t comfortable with the idea…”“I-I w-would like to apologize in p-p-person…” Ajna agrees but doesn’t look all that prepared.“Huh, can I ask you something else?” You get all serious again.“F-Feel f-f-f-free.” That got Ajna nervous.“Can I open the gift?” You deadpan.“I-It is y-yours.” Ajna doesn’t object, but…“…But you don’t seem like you want me to.” You point out. Now that she’s starting to get her act together, it’s easier to understand what’s going on with her. Or at least guess something!“M-My g-gifts t-tend to u-underwhelm…” Ajna has hurtful memories about this. With that in mind, you’re going to be kind to her! You like gifts anyway! Nothing inside this box could be shit to you! Unless it’s actual shit, and if it is, you’re not the issue here.“I’m sure it’s good stuff.” Fuck it, you just want open it! You’ll be selfish this time!It’s some kind of amulet, perfect for a keychain, you don’t know what it says. It uses an old alphabet no one under 60 cares about except for aesthetic reasons. And it looks cool to you, so yeah, you can be shallow about these kinds of things, but you’ll learn about this stuff eventually.“Oh, it’s an amulet!” You really like it despite what your earlier thoughts might indicate. “What does it say?”“It says ‘Guts’!” Ajna didn’t hesitate to respond.“Cool.” You like it so much you immediately put it on your keychain. At least, your key has some companionship… You wonder if you could put Naiad’s gift there too.“Y-You can c-channel my c-courage with it to help y-you out.” Ajna smiles from ear to ear. “Y-You j-just need to r-rub it in your h-hands like y-you’re washing t-them.” She makes the hand motion.“I see, I see.” You’re going to need it! “Wait. Shouldn’t I give you one?”“O-Once y-you accept it, y-you can’t give it b-back. F-From me to you.” Ajna won’t take it.“So I have to buy another one? Understood.” You’ve never received something like this before.“Mhm.” Ajna is eagerly waiting for her future gift.“I really want you to compensate you somehow right now…” But how?How?>Just wait for a better chance later!

“How about a massage?” You won’t wiggle your fingers like certain someone you know since you don’t want to come off as a creepy fuck.“E-Eh?” Ajna is trembling in fear, or just trembling in general, yeah she’s not afraid of you. Point is, she wasn’t expecting that.“A simple back massage, it doesn’t take long and it helps ease your nerves.” You explain it further so Ajna can get past her initial reaction.“U-Uhm…” Ajna holds her arms and looks down to her body, she doesn’t look confident.“Yeah, maybe that’s a little too much. How about a neck massage? It’s a godsend when you stay at home most of the time.” You propose this new alternative.“I-If y-you insist…” Ajna agrees, and not as begrudgingly as you were expecting a second ago.You invite her to sit down on one of the chairs in the living room, apprehensively Ajna moves to her position before you can unleash the pleasure. You rotate your wrist as a warm up before moving her hair away from the zone of interest.“Woah, you have so much hair.” Why did you say that? You sound like a cheap hairdresser.“I-I n-need to t-trim it…” Ajna confesses, a little embarrassed of how poorly she has taken care of her body.“Long hair is fun to mess around with though.” Another weird comment, what’s wrong with you?“I-Is it?” Ajna’s never heard anyone say that before.“Huh, some people like to mess with mine, so I assume more is better.” You know a couple of people who can’t help but play with your lock of hair. It’s not annoying per se, but condescending. Knowing this, you wonder why you even bring it up…“B-But y-yours is…” Ajna knows your hair is long for the traditional human male, but she doesn’t consider it that long.“Yeah, they like playing with my lock of hair.” You point it out once Ajna turns to see. She absentmindedly grabs with care.“Hehehe…” Ajna plays with it for a second.“Okay!” You put your hands on her shoulder so she can sit straight, that made her skip. “Now onto your massage!” You begin using your fingers to pleasure another woman.…Your thoughts are becoming way too strange now. Good thing it doesn’t affect the effectiveness of your massaging, because Ajna hasn’t said a word about it! Judging by her reflexes, you applied a little bit of unnecessary force until you got used to it. Just use them thumbs, yeah, that’s the way. Ajna’s skin is very soft, and the smell from her hair is quite pleasant… You’re getting relaxed as well, how nice. Ajna moaned for an instant, but you both decided to ignore that it happened…After a couple of minutes, your lack of expertise on how to massage necks makes you feel like Ajna’s neck is feeling numb, so you decide to bring this to an end.“Did you like it?” You ask.
>>4472151“M-Mhm…” Ajna, with both eyes closed, rotates her neck all relaxed, no fidgeting in sight.“I’m glad.” You didn’t want to screw this up.It’s starting to get late, it’s close to 12 AM…What do you do?>“Are you ready for a back massage now?” This was merely a test!

“Well Ajna, I need to go, text me whenever you want to come over to apologize to Ruby and have some fun.” It’s time to make your exit.“…” Ajna silently nods after snapping out of her trance.“Cool, then see ya!” You start walking away, but Ajna grabs your hoodie before you can go.“I d-don’t t-think y-you understand h-how much this means to m-me…” Ajna gets flustered just saying it. “T-Thank y-you f-for c-cheering me u-up, J-Johnny…” You think it’s odd that she’s putting this much emphasis on the massage, but hey, everyone has their thing. Now she lets you go.“I’m glad you liked it.” You smile one more time as you check your pocket to see if you still have Ajna’s present for Ruby. “Take care, Ajna. I’ll see you soon.”“T-Take care…” Ajna smiles.And so, you left Ajna’s apartment to put an end to this great day of celebration! It couldn’t have gone better if you say so yourself, all your efforts were well worth it! Now back to your apartment.The lights are off, which means that Ruby already went to sleep, she’s probably the person you know that sleeps the earliest! You imagine she has little to worry about since you didn’t leave the place to do something actually dangerous for once. A perfect opportunity to use one of your abilities and see through the dark! It’s all tidy and clean, like the other girls weren’t here, you imagine both Ruby and Nariko working together to do this since they’re like that. Bradford Jr. is sleeping on the couch, he’s protecting your kingdom from foreign forces in your place. What a loyal knight he is.Taking into account that you don’t want to wake up anyone in this apartment, you stealthily make your way to your room like you were on one of your missions. Heh, you can actually say something like that! You feel cool and nerdy at the same time… You’ll deliver Ajna’s present later.As you prepare your clothes for tomorrow and put on your pajamas, you enter your bed and let the comfiness go through your body like the night’s sky. As you force your pillow to shape itself after your head again, you leave your glasses to the side and let the dream world take you…“Rest well, partner. You deserve it.” Philonune acknowledges you one last time before the day is over…“Thanks…” It’s time to take a rest.…You find yourself in the dark realm known as the Distant Frontier! These are not sweet dreams at all! And yeah, you actually remembered the name of this dumpster… You don’t usually remember the name… What gives? That doesn’t actually matter!You’re once again in this massive meeting with every single Flame user in this hall! You think you kept your seat from last time, but you can tell that a massive number of flame users are gone. And yes, everyone is here:
>>4472368You, Amelia, Richard, WILDFLAME, that one terrorist guy you saw fighting WILDFLAME once, Ka-Shing, Flint, T_T Neko, Nariko, Charlie, Vivienne, Carol, Dudley, Carmella, B-WORM, Billy, Oliver, Nina, Aurora, Linda, Xavi, Lise and a fat guy you don’t actually remember! And of course, from the stage, Constance and Giorsal! As always, you wave back to your favorite mummy. Anyway, Valdemar, Foroutan, Ammirati, Kaz, and many others are absent this time around for obvious reasons. You feel like you should recognize a couple more people though...Holy shit! Most of them don’t actually have the stupid veil now that you know them! And some of these pajamas choices are… uhm… interesting. But that’s not why you’re here…!“Welcome back to the Distant Frontier!” Giorsal makes this meeting official! “Tonight we’re going to discuss the new changes to this 2nd Stage of our deadly game.” She’s setting the mood!Sadly this is all we have for this thread! Thanks everyone for playing!
>>4472369Added Aurora because I forgot her, wew.
>>4472369Holy hell, congrats on 100 threads man, this is the best quest on the entire board. Thank you so much for running it.
>>4472369>>4472372Fuck yeah too a hundred more threads man. Or however many it takes for us too win.
>>4472369Congrats, man! Looking forward to more!
>>4472369wait what the fuck happened to valdemar for him to not be here? I thought he escaped the Dark Church being taken down somehow?
>>4472507Uh anon, Valdemar was de-flamed and most likely put into a coma by Giorsal back during our second solo mission at the car workshop. He wasn't at the Dark Church when we infiltrated it
>>4472510Oh right I forgot about that. I read he wasn't apprehended with the rest of the cult, so I thought he had escaped. What did Giorsal do to him? Also>Von Riegel of the soda pop company, who is related to Matilda, is there>Ruby's father, the rich guy Billy wants to murder, is there>no Rob Banks, except if the guy next to Von Riegel is him? Looks like him>mystery guy below Richard?>who is that fat guy next to Lise?>other people we as players know have flames like Strawberry, San Wich, Behemoth, Joe, etc. are not in this image
>>4472514I think you're mistaking Strawberry for Von Riegel and yeah, that is Rob Banks next to her. Also, if I had to guess, that guy below Richard is probably Lloydinton
>>4472369Nice stuff, keep up the good work
>>4472369It's been a pleasure reading all of this and I'd easily read a hundred more
I came here to announce there won't be a thread this weekend; and to post the full version of the OP with some characters I forgot the first time.>>4472374>>4472380>>4472390>>4472728>>4473622Thank you everyone! I hope we end up finishing this crap!
>>4478221Looks great, take as long a break as you need after all this
