At least, so far.
Yes it's time!
>>765225Pokemon and Spider quest at the same time. Best day ever.
>>765225We missed you, Gobble
Best Rock hype
Bella, despite her relative inexperience, was able to slowly but surely wear down her opponent, Tyrogue. Neither Pokemon was knocked out, but if it had gone on, you think Bella would have won. A sense of pride swells in your chest. But Jane retrieved her Tyrogue and sent out Fletchling. It perches itself up on one of the two, knee-high metal barriers that are in the small battle area. The area itself is surrounded by a thick but low wall of bricks, covered in cracks, burns and stains, and other signs of frequent use.Jane narrows her sharp eyes at Bella and takes a commanding pose. She actually looks really cool right now. “Fletching! You know what to do!” Jane says.Wait! What’s that in Fletching’s mouth? A berry! A Liechi Berry! But why?You need to switch Pokemon, but to who? She’s used one unusual move so far, so you have to assume she could have another up her sleeve.>Mace (Roggenrolla)>Gobble (Munchlax)>Something else

“Bella! Return!” You retrieve her just as Fletchling takes off. “Go, Mace!”Mace appears ready to fight! Just as he’s on the scene, Fletching bounces off of his back with a Peck. It doesn’t seem to hurt all that much at all. You notice that Mace rebalances himself a little and there’s an almost imperceptible bit of light that comes from his ear-face when he does.“Hmph.” Jane puts one hand on her hip. “You’re going to regret that.” You catch her sneaking a peak at her Pokedex.Mace looks ready and eager to prove himself. His little feet quickly bounce around as he gets ready to get at it.Mace hasn’t had a chance to show anything off since his last battle. He might have some new tricks.>Tackle, start nice and easy>Use Mud Slap to throw up a quick barrier against Fletchling’s next attack>Headbutt, his head has to be harder>Harden, beef that defense>Rock Blast, blow it out of the sky>Try Iron Defense>Something else

>>765453>Rock Blast, blow it out of the skyWe need a pokemon that causes confusion.
I don't know why but I have a bad feeling about this fight.

>>765524I would expect for fletchling to evolve before it learned nature power, but you never know. A boosted steel wing or flail could be scary too.
>>765538It can only use it once. Also it is physical, so we can maybe take one
>>765453>Fletchinggimme the butt Gobble, and no one gets hurt
If mace wins can we buy him a cape?
>>765550Did we bet money?
>>765541Mace was hit by Peck on the switch in. So, no sturdy to save it. And Fletchling probably has quick attack too, so if we do survive, it won't be for long.
>>765539With the way gobble's system works and Jane stating that she trained hard it's completely possible that it does in fact have nature powerIn fact after this we should probably train to gain worry seed on budew
>>765538Natural gift consumes the berry, it can't be spammed.
>>765542[Is this one new?]
If we hit him probably is going to faint, but he is quicker. We just need to see if Mace can resist that Natural gift
If it already used the berry wouldn't Natural Gift be whatever it would normally be?
>>765628Natural gift fails with no berry.Also, we should probably be whispering all of out commands to Mace by default, so as not to tip our hand, huh?
>>765628>>765643so Fletchling to Fletchinder evolution after best rock faints then, then sweeps Bella.
>>765643We never did that as the actual proffesional battler, why would we do anything less then color coded scarves.

>>765643>>765667Nonsense, we should just get a Ralts implanted into our chest cavity to relay messages around.
>>765671Calm the fuck down Hornbeam
>>765671Nah, Shoulder psychic type would work fine.

>>765671Hornbeam leave now
>>765695Mainly that she literally spent her entire day around a strategy to beat us with. Annoyance and pity.
>>765695I'd like to win but as long as we have fun I'm okay with losing
>>765695I don't care if we win or lose. If we lose I'm hoping we tell her good battle and then largely ignore her while telling Bella what a good job she's done.If we win, I'm hoping we do the same.
>>765695I think no one wants John to fail horribly at the moment In fact most people probably want to pulverize her and all of her beliefs and ideals
>>765704Probably if we win she is going to be more pissed with us, and if we lose we will just say ''good battle'' and she is going to be more pissed with us because we don't care.
>>765695I feel like I could go either way. As long as we display humility in victory and grace in defeat. Congratulating her on a good battle, thanking her for the learning experience for us and our pokemon, suggesting we all get ice cream after she battles Laki.
>>765695I feel like even if we LOSE she'll get mad at us for taking it gracefully and making her look like a sore winner.
>>765724She is going to get mad if we win or lose.
Oh happy day, I caught the thread live!

Jane looks scary in her determination. She’s put a lot of thought and effort into what she’s doing.“You’ve been spending your time with games. We’ve been training and covering every possibility!” She proudly proclaims. “I believe in you, Fletchling! Natural Gift!”Fletchling gulps down it’s berry and comes zooming down at Mace.“Rock Blast! Hurry!”Fletchling is just too fast. Mace is hit with what looks like an incredible, green blow. It’s a distinctly grass type attack. Mace goes rolling backwards and into the brick siding along the edge of the arena.“Good job, Fletchling, now let’s-”Mace gets up and shakes himself before firing off Rock Blast. He gets a few good hits in before Fletchling dives behind the metal plating.Bits of white energy pop around Mace. He looks like he’s having trouble controlling it. It’s like he has too much energy and he’s leaking it. Health-wise, he’s looking almost completely done.“Give it up, John. It’s over. Don’t make your Pokemon pay for it.”You look at Mace. He’s tripping over himself. Every time he’s about to fall over, a bit of white energy bursts out of his face or his limbs to right himself. It reminds you of that space lander computer game. He goes a little too strong and pushes himself back a few inches.Jane uses her hand to signal Fletchling to hold off on it’s next attack. “Looks like he’s got too much energy.” She glances to you. “Just how negligent are you?”You remember something from your Pokedex saying that when they have excess energy, it forms crystals and it evolves. Is that what that white energy is?The injured Fletchling flies up high. Jane has her finger up, waiting to give her consent to attack again. The berry is gone. Fletchling looks pretty roughed up, too. If it were evolved and part Fire, it’d probably be out. You could still win this if you get really lucky.>Don’t give up! Try Rock Blast again! Hope the distance makes up for the difference in speed. (really difficult)>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon center.>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)>Swap to Bella>Something else
>>765778>>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon center.
>>765778>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon center.
>>765778>>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon center.Know when to hold 'em.Know when to fold 'em.
>>765778>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)Normally I wouldn't vote for the suicide attack, but this sounds like it will happen often so this might be a chance for Mace to eventually learn how to let off the energy (hopefully without fainting).
>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)Sending a weak grass type vs. a flying type? No thanks. Alpha-strike, all or nothing!
>>765778>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon center.>>765695[I want John to grow into a strong young man of good character with a solid team, even if his character growth comes at the low price of losing to someone like Jane. Jane used to interest me more as a player but the past thread has caused me to dismiss her a bit. I hope John just respectfully ignores her, now. That said, I'm excited about this battle because it's been a good challenge and it is an opportunity for John to say, "You know what? My team did great and really stepped up to the plate. I'm going to make sure I always do the same for them."I don't think John needs to necessarily express his strength in battling, though, and that's not the angle I personally foresee his character development going. I like the idea of acting like a Ranger, but I don't know what John will end up passionate about so I'm also excited at the prospect of him finding something worth fighting for.]
>>765778>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)He doesn't want to evolve so he needs to get that energy off.
>>765778>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)Self-destruct, go!
>>765778>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon center.>Something elseEncourage Mace to let out that energy. No sense in trying out some untested new attack, assuming it's even an attack, on a low stakes match.
>>765778>Call off the match. You’re just proud of your Pokemon for doing their best, and Mace might need a Pokemon centerThere's not really much that Bella can do to Fletchling in her injured state without risking serious damage, so we may as well just let it go.
>>765820She's at full health actually.
>>765778>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)
>>765798Or we can have a profession look at it and suggest what to do.
>>765778Isn't it way to early in the quest to start threatening evolution?This is, what our third or fourth battle? and only our third day into our journey. Just seems a bit to soon to be getting into that right now
>>765778>>Whisper to Mace to fire all his excess energy in one direction (Less difficult, but likely to make him faint)Mace chooses not to evolve. If he wants to keep to that, he's going to need to learn how to let it out sooner or later.
>>765843>a professionReally, anon?
>>765852See >>765843>>765844Mace is pretty strong. And not really.>>765854Professional. I missed two letters.
>>765778>Ask mace if he wants to stop the match>if no then use all the energy if yes call off the match
I can't wait for mace to get his power-limiter pauldrons.
>>765859if mace dosen't want to evolve then he won't evolve It doesn't even matter that much anyways
>>765877Pokemon can be forced to evolve anon. That is the exact situation we are in right now. We need to find a way for him to let off the energy or he will keep doing what he is now.

>>765900>>765902I hope that is well
Two very good rolls.
Feels kinda dickish to continue a battle after your opponent ceases attacking out of concern for your Pokemon's well-being.
>>765929Kinda, but we asked mace and he said go, so we went.
>>765929I'm glad that the 'ask Mace' vote was the tiebreaker, since it'll mean that the decision is his. I'm in the 'he'll have to learn how to deal with this eventually' camp, but ultimately it's fair that he gets to decide. He knows better than us how he's feeling.
>>765929Well that is what people voted for. Also Mace would have been able to act again technically
>>765929Well it's character development and adds a dickish side to John That and it means that Jane loses which will lead to more hilarious and sad over reactions
>>765929Yeah, but Jane's still ready to battle if we decide to and she'll have a heads up from our conversation with Mace, assuming he decides to stay and fight. If fletchling knows protect, we can just cede the battle and go to the pokemon center to figure out what we're gonna do about this energy thing long-term.
>>765803With our ranks in cooking and fashion we have the makings of a top class coordinator. Especially if we get style battles like in the animu.
>>765957I think I would be okay with coordinator as well. It depends on how it is handled, I suppose.I want to use the new Water starter in a coordinator battle with John.
>>766008>That spoilerFuck no
>>766008>New Pokemon>Not MimikyuOh I see what kind of person you are.
>>766008>New mon>not buffpod or mimikyu
>>766015>>766027MwHAHAaha.I also enjoy mimikyu. I would love to have one on our team.On a side note, what would be the best Pokemon for trolling Jane? A parafusion specialist? A swagger and evasion specialist?
>>766043All of the above. Klefki coming in hot
>>766043Spinda, for teeter dance and assist.Amoongus, for spore and bulkyness.Magikarp, for rain+swift swim, then eviolite and flail.
>>766027>>766041>>766043So... everyone agrees? we need a mimikyu
>>766062When the games come out, hopefully.
>>766043A pokemon sacred to this island.Because we got itand she doesn't.
>>766062Totally Fits our aura,/fa/ thing,and personality
>>766074that's evil anonI support this planshe'll hate us even more if we get a shard before her
I just want a Totodile, Heracross and a Bagon
>>766094Everytime you post that the probability of Jane ending up with those mons increases by 1%. Gobble wouldn't be that cruel, right?
>>766118No, Gobble would give her all 3. >implying Gobble isn't kill
>>766118Polu stole away volcaronaSo yes

“Mace, do you want to continue?”Mace gives a sloppy nod as he stumbles forward.“Alright! Let’s do it, then!”“You negligent...little...Ugh! Fletchling! Tackle! Take it out quickly!” Jane yells at the same time you’re whispering your command to Mace. You instruct him to to focus all of his leaking energy at one point.Fletchling comes flying in. It all happens so fast, but it’s amazing. Mace puts up his legs and the limb on the top of his head and all that energy focuses out in one direction. Mace goes flying back like a rocket just in time to dodge Fletchling. The red bird smacks into the bricks behind where Mace was.Mace comes to a rolling stop a good distance away, taps the other brick wall, then falls over. He’s completely out.You retrieve him. “That was really good.”Fletchling stumbles all over the ground, looking dizzy. A stray feather falls off.“Fletchling!” Jane growls at you as she retrieves her Pokemon. “I can’t believe you’re so low to use Roggenrola like that. He was just being brave for you! Not that you deserve it!” She holds her Pokeball close. “You’re a real piece of work, you know that? Is your Pokemon even alright?”She reaches for her Tyrogue’s ball as you reach for Bella’s.>You just did what Mace wanted.>Ignore her. Just keep battling.>Ask why she didn’t use a stronger attack or try to hit him earlier.>Maybe she raises a good point. Call off the match and take Mace to the Pokemon center.>Something else

>>766132>>You just did what Mace wanted.>Maybe she raises a good point. Call off the match and take Mace to the Pokemon center.
>>766132Wow, she's a right hypocrite and self-righteous as well.
>>766132>You just did what Mace wanted.Mace is kicking massive ass. And he would want us to continue doing so. Therefore, let's take out this tyrogue and walk away victorious and triumphant. And glorious. And everything else that pisses Jane off.
>>766132>>I guess youre quite deaf then>>You just did what Mace wanted.>>But she raises a good point. Call off the match and take Mace to the Pokemon center.
>>766132>>You just did what Mace wanted.Mace made his choice. I ain't going to disrespect that.
>>766132>>You just did what Mace wanted.bitch, you're about to send a near dead pokemon back into battle
>>766132>You just did what Mace wanted.We trust him. He knows his limits.We are going to end the fight with Mega-drain spam. I feel bad.
>>766132>You just did what Mace wanted.If you can't trust your own pokemon to know their limits then you don't really trust them at all.
>>766118Well I'd also like a Mudkip, Mawile, Riolu, Starly, Venipede, Espeon, Golett, Gligar, Vulpix or Elekid.>>766132>You just did what Mace wanted.
>>766199Remember who we're fighting,Don't feel bad, take it as giving her the bitch slap we all want to.
>>766132>Thank Mace>Keep battling

>>766132>>Maybe she raises a good point. Call off the match and take Mace to the Pokemon center.I'm getting a little worried.
[I'm realizing that the way I presented that vote makes it unclear about votes that want to keep battling.Regardless of how you respond, will you call off the battle and go to the Pokemon center, or keep going?]>Keep battling>Go to the Pokemon center
>>766240>Go to the Pokemon center
>>766240>Keep battlingI don't see why we need another vote

>>765225I'm late, dammit.
>>766240>Go to the Pokemon centerWe spared Mace his pride, but it's time to go take care of him.
>>766240>>Go to the Pokemon centerI feel whether we continue or not, the conclusion to the fight itself should be obvious given the first half of the fight. If she demands a forfeit for this then personally I say she can have it. It probably won't feel like much of one anyway.
[Looks like Battling wins. Sorry about that. Just wanted to be sure. Writing.Also seriously, what's with these dice rolls at all the right times? Herb isn't nearly as unlucky as advertised. I need to find more bad things to happen.]
>>766324It's because he is fabulous. That gives him his luck.

>>766324Oh that picture
>>766324Just get him landed in nasty unrolled situations that we have to figure a way out of.Like say, being picked up by the police on suspicion of being a pickpocket that matches the extremely vague description they have of the perpetrator.

>>766361>If you mean more embarrassing\hilarious\awkward situationsNah, needs to be truly painful, terrifying, and costly.We already get enough funny moments, need some dark times now.
>>766381Didn't gobble want this to be lighter in tone than the first quest?
>>766381All in good time.
>>766381We might have a medical problem with Mace. Gobble will pull out dark times when needed, don't rush for it.

>>766414Oh for sure, the vote was to finish this first.

>>766413>>766422I was referring to she-who-is-dumb-as-fuck not hexAlso hex is not for sexual
>>766324Actually, I've been wondering. Does Herb's bad luck just apply to himself, or does it extend to everyone around him?
>>766429I'm pretty sure that's exactly what she's for.
>>766443you are correct
>>766429The internet says that every pokemon girl is for sexual.
>>766463I knew this would come in handy
“I was just doing what Mace wanted.”She scoffs. “Can’t you tell the difference between a Pokemon that’s still fit for battle and one that’s pushing themselves too hard?”Her insistence on the issue is shaking your confidence. “I-I can. Mace was standing up! He wanted to battle. I’m sure of it! And what about Tyrogue?”Tyrogue and Bella appear on the field.“Tyrogue is worn down, but it’s nowhere near the same.” She stomps. “I’m sick of you playing stupid! You played on my sympathy to beat Fletchling. Tyrogue, let’s teach them a lesson!”He takes a determined fighting pose. He’s worn down, but he’s looking really pumped and motivated.“I can feel it. You’re close, aren’t you? You and I have been working hard. We won’t let some underhanded, elitist mainlander like this win with his tricky ways.” She takes on a determined smile.Belladonna is looking good. She’s not at full health, but she’s only moderately worn down compared to Tyrogue. Her attitude is less confident, though. Her opponent still has a lot of experience on her.>Mega Drain.

>>766506>Mega Drain. It was working great before>Try and blockAlways assume someone who knows Fake Out will use it at every available opportunity. Otherwise, just keep on the pressure from before I suppose.

>>766585No, pessimism is what bad luck meant.Plus naivete leading to bad decision making that gets us into trouble.
Wait, since when we have bad luck? I don't remember.

>>766614So is Fake-Out super OP in this or are we gonna see an evolution?
>>766668We already got hit by fakeout so may be a mixture
>>766656We are going to end up saving the planet by accident.Like how Kat stole from someone who happened to be the worst monster in pokemon history.
>>766733P-Poison Point, right?
>>766763Probably not as the mega drain spam was also her spaming thief and tackle
>>766777Right, well Natural Cure or the eventual technician are both good.
So why doesn't Tyrogue just pick Bella up and repeatedly smash her into the ground?She isn't exactly big or heavy.
>>766811Because Tyrogue is actually super weak and he wouldn't be able to dodge attacks. That is also just a shitty attack in general.
>>766811Well it's harder to catch then you think and that would just make spaming mega drain or pin missile super easy
>>766817>dodge attacksIts kinda hard to attack when someone significantly bigger than you repeatedly smashes your face/whole body into the ground.
>>766811bella has a higher BST, by 70 pointsand she only has 5 less attack
>>766831Because you overestimate how strong that is. Hint, it isn't
>>766831Your overestimating him
“Didn’t you grow up on the mainlaind too?” You remember being told she had one mainlander parent.“Shut up! Tyrogue! Fake out! Use all the power and determination you have!”Tyrogue moves so fast he nearly teleports to Belladona, smacking her and making her flinch.Then he begins to glow.“Yes! Yes!” Jane cheers. Bella uses Mega Drain on him as it’s happening, but it doesn’t stop him. She gets back a little bit of the health lost from Fake Out, though.Tyrogue fully evolves into Hitmonlee! He kicks at the air, testing out his new form.Bella backs away.But you can also see how work down he his. He can’t last much longer. Bella is hurt, too, but she has a lot more health than him. You can still win this with some luck. But since you don’t have luck, you’ll have to substitute pluckiness instead.“Let’s try some combos, Hitmonlee.”>Run and Pin missle!>Mega Drain as much as you can! Just keep it up!>Growth!

>>766985L A T E>>766983I'd say we won no matter what. Even if we didn't win the battle, we took someone who trains non stop to her very edge.

>>767069Of course, if we rush off and skip listening to the gloating all the better

Jane is ecstatic. “Way to go! I’m so proud of you!” You realize this is the first time you’ve seen her smile. You like her better this way. Her eyes are really shining and she looks cool. You feel a bit self-concious.“Wow! Congratulations on the evolution!”Jane’s smile vanishes. “I’m not letting you make me drop my guard again, coward! Hitmonlee, let’s finish this!”“Bella! Mega Drain! Strong as you can!”“Hitmonlee, do you have any new moves?”It nods. The body language suggests he thinks so. It walks forward as Bella uses Mega Drain. He stumbles, but keeps going. He quickly picks up speed, spins, and delivers a horrifyingly powerful Mega Kick!Bella’s tiny body is sent directly into the brick wall on the other side of the arena, where the impact loosens a few. She flops onto the ground.She lays there for a minute before trying to get up and failing.“It’s okay, Bella.” You run over. “You did well.”Bella smiles up at you weakly. She’s glad you’re happy. Her gaze turns to something over your shoulder. You look up and see Jane.>Shake her hand. That was a good battle>Call her a hypocrite for what she said about Mace and the mainlander thing>No time to chat. You’ve got to get to the Pokemon center!>Good match. Want to get ice cream after I go to the Pokemon center?>Something else

>>767205>>Shake her hand. That was a good battle>Good match. Want to get ice cream after I go to the Pokemon center?
Not even mad, she had to put in that much effort to scrape out a win against untrained u evolved mons.
>>767205>Good match. Want to get ice cream after I go to the Pokemon center?We can TRY to be her friend at least.
>>767205>Good match. Want to get ice cream after I go to the Pokemon center?She's gonna say no but its worth the shot.
>>767285You realize she was also using unevolved mons too. She just gave them held items.
>>767305Because anons love diplomacy.
>>767310Her Fletchling is about 8 levels from Talonflame level. Her Tyrogue evolved midfight.
>>767335Quest levels =/ Game levels, but her Pokemon were way more trained than ours
>>767305I don't know. I just don't want a possible enemy.
>>767351Funny you should say that.
>>767310Yes, but they were pretty high level, relatively.Bella's not long hatched. Not much above level 5.Her Tyrogue started the battle at 19. Her Fletchling was probably lower, but not too much so.It's not an exact measurement quest-game, but that's still a phenomenal performance from Mace and especially Bella.
>>767386Fletchling learns Nature power at 29, so unless she used a TM for it it's a LOT stronger than we are.
>>767412in case you missed the last quest. we could basically train any move we wanted from the get go
>>767412That's not how gobble's system worksShe could have just trained that move early to defend against rock types
She smugly looks down on you. “I guess good old fashioned training and hard work beats your-”“That was a good battle.” You get up and extend your hand. She instinctively moves to put her fist up, but you catch her hand and shake it, confusing her.“I-I-I-”“I guess you don’t want to get ice cream after I go to the pokemon center, am I right?”Her eyes are darting all around your face, analyzing and double analyzing what you’re saying. “...No?”“Great! I’ll see you there!” You grab your pokeballs and start to go.Jane is about to go when Laki stops her. “Forgetting our match?”Jane’s confused look disappears as she looks up to Laki. “Still eager to get your butt kicked, huh? Or are you going to choke?”Laki gets right in her face. The two stand chest to chest. From here, they almost look related. They both have relatively short hair for girls. They’re both very physically fit (although Laki is still obviously more so) and they both have a look on their face like they want to destroy the other one. The biggest differences are that Laki is bigger (in every way) and their complexion.You guess you’ll find out who won after. You run down to the Pokemon center and the nurse takes them to get healed. Gobble remains on your belt.Keira and Hana followed you. Keira’s wearing the sundress now. “That was an exciting match.”>Ask when she got changed>Ask them their opinion on Jane>Ask them if they know whatever happened to that mushroom money>Ask if they want to come for ice cream too>Something else

>>767563>Ask them their opinion on Jane>Ask if they want to come for ice cream tooAlso does Mace still have pent up energy to get rid of or did we use that in the fight?
>>767563>Ask them their opinion on Jane>Ask if they want to come for ice cream too>>767620If we don't get him an Everstone or something I wonder if he'll need to constantly explode in order to keep the energy build up from becoming too much.
>>767563>Ask them if they know whatever happened to that mushroom moneyI don't think they stole it, but not knowing what happened to it is going to bug the shit out of me.Also, we're making unexpected progress with Jane!
>>767563>Ask them if they know whatever happened to that mushroom money>Ask if they want to come for ice cream too
>>767563Shiiiit, I wanted to watch them fight....
>>767563>Ask them their opinion on Jane>Ask if they want to come for ice cream too
>>767563>Ask if they want to come for ice cream tooIf we can manage it, get some for our mons also.
>>767563>Something elseAsk if they think we pushed Mace too far. Don't want doubt lingering around...
You turn to the nurse and mention Mace’s energy. She assures you that they scan for any diseases or issues every time, and she’ll let you know if she sees anything.“When did you get changed?” You ask KeiraKeira smiles. “While you were fighting. I missed some of it. My hair got caught pulling it on.”Hana presses her fingers together. “I was also distracted.” She mumbles.Huh. That’s a shame. You’re really proud of how well your Pokemon did. “Do you two want to come get ice cream too?”Keira snickers. “Mainland style? I’ve only had it once before. We’re not supposed to.” Her voice is low and her eye are wide. “That’s really naughty.”“I love ice cream.” Hana says, excited. “They always served a cup at the hospit... I like ice cream!”“Awesome!” You pause. “Hey, what do you two think about Jane?”“She’s really conflicted.” Keira tells you as she starts to re-arrange pins on the billboard. She’s making an arrow. “I don’t think she likes you very much. I’ve seen a lot of people like her. People that get concerned and judgmental about the rules and traditions without understanding the meaning behind them. That’s what she reminds me of.”“I’ve read some girls will bully a guy that they like.” Hana says offhandedly. “Not that I think that’s what she’s doing.” She throws her hands up. “I just mean that she seems to put a lot of thought into what you do. I didn’t really understand why she wanted to battle before. I wish she could get along with everyone.”Before you forget, you ask if they know about the mushroom money. Hana and Keira exchange a look. “Laki and Valerie sold them. Didn’t they give you your share?”You get your Pokemon back from the nurse. She confirms that there’s nothing wrong on the scan they do. “Nothing that comes up, anyway. Your Roggenrola is in great health. But if you want, you can see Professor Palm about it. I can call and see when he’s free for a meeting.”>Nah, that’s okay. As long as there's nothing to worry about>Is tomorrow morning good?>You don’t think Valerie and Laki ripped you off, did they?>Something else
>>767978>Is tomorrow morning good?/>Please do.
>>767978>>Is tomorrow morning good?Better to be safe and we can ask the girls about the mushrooms themselves
>>767978>>Is tomorrow morning good?>You don’t think Valerie and Laki ripped you off, did they?
>>767978>Is tomorrow morning good?
>>767978>Nah, that’s okay. As long as there's nothing to worry about
>>767978>Is tomorrow morning good?Ice cream with the two best girls... and Jane
>>767978>>Is tomorrow morning good?Laki and Valerie wouldn't do something like that. I'm sure they just haven't got round to it yet. Or something.
>>767978>Is tomorrow morning good?I was sure they gave it to us already guys
>>767978>>Is tomorrow morning good?why is mainland style ice cream naughty?did I miss an innuendo?
>>768023I remember Laki mentioning it as well last thread or the end of the thread before..
>>767978>>Is tomorrow morning good?I would also prefer Herb just ask Laki about the shroom money himself
>>768070>>768023That was the nugget money
>>767978>>Is tomorrow morning good?>>768023We got our half of the Nugget money, but nothing past that I believe. I don't really see it as a big deal though.
You ask her to schedule a meeting with the professor, just to be safe. She dials him and starts chatting.“Is tomorrow morning okay?”She asks, then gives you a nod. “He says any time tomorrow morning is fine. Just come by whenever.”“Thanks! Should I do anything in the meantime?”“Relax.” she tells you. “Go be a young person and have some fun. Your pokemon is fine.”That makes you feel better. You’ll be able to completely put it out of your mind after tomorrow, though. With that scheduled, you head off.Your Pokemon follow you. Mace, Gobble, and Bella. Mace seems fine. At least, until Gobble says something. Then mace looks angry.“Gobble! Don’t be mean. Mace did his best” Keira admonishes.Gobble gives Mace a playful jab. Mace gives him a headbutt. They’re just messing with each other.“Oh.” Keira says. “I guess I have a lot to learn about boys. Even pokemon boys.”The three of you arrive at the ice cream shop. Jane is there, waiting with folded arms.“How did your battle go?” Keira asks.Jane opens the door and you all go in. She’s still eying you up and down, waiting for some trap. “I won. She got upset and left. The other one followed.”The ice cream shop owner greets you and shows you the selection. Keira is happy to see some sort of traditional island ice cream among the options and orders that after some internal debate. Hana orders, then Jane.Keira once again forgets that she has no money, but the shop keeper lets her have it for free. She thanks him and offers to examine his shop for haunting, which he’s happy to have done. Just in case. She makes her way to his back room.You, Jane, and Hana sit at the table with your ice cream. Jane’s sharp eyes dig into you.>Tell her you got off on the wrong foot. You want to be friends.>So. Tell me about yourself.>This is awkward. Ask Hana about what upcoming movies she’s excited for.>Did Laki say when she’d be back?>Something else
>>768257>>Did Laki say when she’d be back?
>>768257>>So. Tell me about yourself.
>>768257>>This is awkward. Ask Hana about what upcoming movies she’s excited for.I doubt the direct approach is gonna work with Jane
>>768257>Tell her you got off on the wrong foot. You want to be friends
>>768257>So, what flavor is your favorite?
>>768257>So. Tell me about yourself.It probably won't work, but it's worth a shot.
>>768257>So. Tell me about yourself.Also ask where she found a liechi berry, john would be interested to know for culinary reasons!
>>768257>>Tell her you got off on the wrong foot. You want to be friends.>>So. Tell me about yourself.>>Did Laki say when she’d be back?
>>768257>Something elseTalk about her battle with Laki. Probably she wants to tell how amazing his hitmonlee is. Probably is the only way to talk to her directly.
>>768257>So. Tell me about yourself.>Did Laki say when she’d be back?
>>768257>Did Laki say when she’d be back?>What is your favorite flavor?
>>768257Seconding>>768283>So, what flavor is your favorite?If she says Rocky Road, I don't care how she treats us from here on out, she's cool in my book.

>>768310>not chocolate chip cookie doughshe's dead to me if she goes with pistachio
>>768257And now I'm worried about Laki....
so are we all ignoring the social taboo of mainland ice cream?
>>768325>pistachioThe most scandalous of flavors. Don't you know the social implications of asking for pistachio in front of a ghost priestess?
>>768441>>768325If someone orders pistachio in front of us, we should just vomit then and there.I can't think of anything more disgusting. Why does this even exist?
Pistachio makes a lovely muffin tho
>>768458Go blueberry or go home
>>768458you misspelled terrible anonI demand an apology butt
>>768458Muffins exist in flavours other than blueberry and terrible?Learn something new every day.
>>768466Blueberry is great, but you gotta have variety.Cinnamon or chocolate muffins are also nice.
>>768482>he doesn't know about lemon poppyseedYou poor, poor soul.
>>768509Those do sound good. I also had a raspberry muffin once that was amazing.>>768510Tell me more
>>768510I like eating lemons, and I still think that sounds revolting.
pretty much any berry with white chocolate is godly in a pastry
>>768470[Have one from me for the slow update speed today.]
>>768534>I like eating lemonsMuh nigga. I fucking love lemons.The only other person I met in my life who likes eating lemons was my mom, everyone else is a little pussy cause "it's too sour" for them.
>>768531>>768534It's a poppyseed muffin drizzled with a bit of sweet lemon glaze.It isn't sour at all; the lemon mostly provides flavor that contrasts with the sweetness.
>>768555My grandfather and I used to quarter lemons, dump a bunch of salt on them, and just bite right the fuck in. I miss him.
“So. what flavor is your favorite?”She eyes you suspiciously.“My favorite is Rocky Road.” You tell her, sharing first so she’ll relax a bit.“Same.” She shows you her cone.“Chocolate Chip cookie dough.” Hana says quietly. You nod. That’s a respectable choice. You’re pretty laid back about most things people choose for themselves, but if any of them chose something like pistachio you’d need to give the misguided poor soul an intervention.Jane nods her approval at Hana’s choice too. Her composure reminds you of an old samurai movie where they’re discussing techniques.There’s another awkward silence. You can hear Keira loudly chant something in the other room.“So, tell me about yourself.”Jane looks at you again. “You first.”Okay. Jeez. “Well. My mom works for the company that processes vispum.” You start. You go into detail about the move and your old life. Nothing too big, just where you grew up, that you have siblings, your grandparents, stuff like that.When you’re doing, you realize Jane has been taking notes. “Hmm? My turn? Well, fair is fair.” She tells you where she grew up. It’s actually not far from where you did. “This is all public record information. I guess there’s no harm in it.” She tells you about here parents. They’re divorced. A mainlander dad and islander mom. She chose to live with her dad until she was old enough for her journey, at which time she changed her mind and decided to come to the islands and find her true self. “I’m sure you already have a dossier on me, speculating the reasons.”“I really don’t.” You try to convince her. She just gives you a sly look, like she’s trying to say sarcastically “sure you don’t. I believe you. This is my believing face.”(continued)
>>768558>sweet lemon glazeUgh. I'll stick to straight lemons, thanks.>>768576She certainly has an inflated sense of her own importance.
>>768576“I think we got off on the wrong foot. Maybe we can be friends.”She laughs. “You never quit, do you? Or maybe since I beat you you’re sucking up. Maybe you know I’ll be the future champion and you want an in, huh? What’s your plan? Win be over with kindness, learn all my weaknesses, and then usurp the title? Just take my from behind like that?”Hana coughs and chokes on her ice cream.“Well I’m not playing ball.”“All clear!” Keira comes back, giving the grateful shopkeeper the good news and receiving her island style ice cream. “What does playing ball mean?”Hana explains it’s a mainlander phrase. Jane looks uncomfortable at watching the reminder that she’s still very much an outsider here.“So did Laki say when she’d be back?” You try to break the awkwardness again.Jane turns her head. “No. But it’s not like her word means anything. Knowing her she’s going to take her loss as badly a possible and be an embarrassment to the region.”>What’s your problem with her, anyway?>Ask Keira if she’s okay with you guys eating the mainland ice cream>Tell her you’ll train hard for your next battle with her>Thank her for coming and see her off.>Something else
We need to get our poor, suffering Munchlax a muffin. That's what I've taken away from this conversation.
>>768601>>Tell her you’ll train hard for your next battle with her>>Thank her for coming and see her off.
>>768601>>Ask Keira if she’s okay with you guys eating the mainland ice cream>It isn't nice to talk bad about people behind their back Jane.>Thank her for coming and see her off.>Get Gobble some Ice cream
>>768601>Hana coughs and chokes on her ice cream.Okay, Hana’s pretty much my favorite and moments like this arr what clenched it.>Ask Keira if she’s okay with you guys eating the mainland ice cream>Tell her you’ll train hard for your next battle with her>Thank her for coming and see her off.That's probably enough Jane for now.
>>768601Hana is a lewd girl isn't sheShe needs to learn the true extent of lewdness under this thread's tutelage
>>768601>Tell her you’ll train hard for your next battle with her>Thank her for coming and see her off.>Something elseGo look for Laki, she needs comfort. Bella will be happy to help
>>768601>What’s your problem with her, anyway?But not like that. More like "You two don't seem to get along very well. Did something happen between you two?"
>>768601>>Ask Keira if she’s okay with you guys eating the mainland ice cream>Tell her you’ll train hard for your next battle with her>Thank her for coming and see her off.
>>768601>Ask what's so taboo about mainland ice cream
>>768601>Tell her you’ll train hard for your next battle with her>Give Gobble Ice Cream
>>768576>“My favorite is Rocky Road.” You tell her, sharing first so she’ll relax a bit.>“Same.” She shows you her cone.Jane is now our new best friend.Also:>When you’re doingIs that supposed to be>When you're done>>768601>Win be over>Just take my from>What’s your problem with her, anyway?
>>768601>Just take my from behind like that?Butt.>>What’s your problem with her, anyway?I want to punch holes in her ego. So much.
>>768610>>768624>>768630>>768631>>768632>>768634>>768639>not getting Gobble ice creamPoor neglected Gobble.
>>768575>I miss him.I know that feel, bro. My mom and I used to do the same, its how I acquired my love for sour food in general.
>>768651I'm sorry, I forgot!
>>768651Jane was right about us after all.But nah, let's get our while team some treats once they get back from the pokemon center, including ice cream for Gobble.
>>768639[Guess I owe a few for that]
>>768601>>768630Add treating our pokemon when we leave to my write in instead of starting to search for Laki
>>768639>>768646[There we are.]
You're a good QM, Gobble. Let no one tell you otherwise.
>>768601>Thank her for coming and see her off.I thought the muffin debate was settled last quest.Thread 4 if I remember correctly.
>>768745The muffin discourse will never be finished.
>>768695Also, you're spoiling us with all the Misty lewds.Original and best, indeed.
>>768745>>768749All muffins are equal.Except blueberry, which are better. But they don't fit into the equation so it's all good.That's the only way to look at it.
>>768759I find the lack of Chocolate chip and banana disturbing.
>>768759You're not wrong.
Why are we even talking about muffins anyway? It's not like they are the poffin equivalent here.
so when do we somehow send Jane over the edge with our antics?i want to see her cry.
>>768868We just keep being friendly. She'll eventually lose her mind and accept that we have always been the best of friends for years.
I'm really trying to like Jane, really, but she's such a bitch. Low blow to Laki. Low blow.
>>768601hana needs to get her head out of the gutterand onto Herb's lap
>>768882I want to believe she'll get better over time. Right now she's just a bitch, though.
>>768891Cute picture. I approve.
>>768879What's the logistics of that? I mean she thinks we have a dossier on her and we were just trying to be friendly.>>768898Hopefully we'll get through to her she's pretty dense
>>768911I don't know. Take a bullet for her or something.
>>768913I'd die of laughter if she misconstrued that as an elaborate attempt to gain her trust so we can swipe the championship from under her.
Mace and Bella are sitting on the floor just hanging around, but Gobble is standing beside you, staring.“Oh! I’m sorry, Gobble. Let me get you some.” You order some more for Gobble with your remaining money. You check with the others just in case, but they don’t want any. Bella has a small appetite and Mace seems to prefer fried foods.As you’re feeding Gobble, a sudden thought strikes you. “Keira, is this okay? Eating mainland ice cream and all?”She waves off your concern. “It’s only a priestess rule. One that I never understood.” She thinks. “Actually. It’s just for buying it. It’s okay if it’s going to go to waste.” She’s eyeing your cone. You feel a little bit drip down your hand and reach for a napkin to wipe it off. Keira stops you and just sucks it right off your finger. “That’s sooo good.”Hana’s cone explodes in her hand. Keira eagerly attacks her hands..It’s about time to take off, but before you see Jane out, you have to know something. “You and Laki don't seem to get along very well. Did something happen between you two?"“She never said anything?” Jane eyes you up and down. “Alright. I’ll tell you. But first, I need something from you. An insurance policy. A secret. Something I can have in my back pocket just in case this is a trick.”>Nevermind. Forget it.>Tell her about a very simple recipe you can’t make no matter how hard you try>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandals>Tell her about the last time you had a...nocturnal episode>Something else>>768891[Too cute]
>>768913No way. You know how precise the timing has to be for you to take a bullet for someone? She'll end up convinced we hired a sniper to make ourselves look good.
>>768911I thought her hostility was rooted more in reasonable expectation based on past experiences, but dossiers? Throwing an athletic embarrassment in someone's face? Come on, that's just stupid. I thought Jane would be better than that.
>>768925>>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandalsDear god
>>768925>>Tell her about a very simple recipe you can’t make no matter how hard you tryFucking Omelets man
>>768925>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandals
>>768925>>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandals
>>768925>>Tell her about a very simple recipe you can’t make no matter how hard you tryAnd then she will spend a lot of time mastering it and make us try it to rub it in our face and we can just tell her how great it is
>>768925>>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandalsNot our proudest moment.WE WERE YOUNG AND EXPERIMENTING!
>>768925>>Tell her about a very simple recipe you can’t make no matter how hard you tryOur secret shame. Our constant failure. Our eggy bread. How do we keep messing that up?
>>768925>Tell her about a very simple recipe you can’t make no matter how hard you tryHana continuing to be the best, I see. Tell me again why we shouldn't bring her and Keira along for more of this?
>>768934Omlette du fromage
>>768925>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandalsgod damn it Keira, stop messing with my rankings
>>768925>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandalsIs Jane a doomsday pepper? Is she heavily invested in gold? Does she think 9/11 was an inside job? Her paranoia is off the fookin charts
>>768925>Tell her about a very simple recipe you can’t make no matter how hard you try
>>768925She'll probably end up saying that she doesn't see anything wrong with that outfit and that it looks quite good
>>768925>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandalsAlso>jortsthat's a butt.
>>768959Is Jane a doomsday pepper?This isn't even her final form
>>768925>Show her the picture of the time you wore acid fade jorts and socks with sandals.Wait, did we even decide we were going for the league?
>>768978>He doesn't know Jorts
>>768978jorts are a thing anona very very bad thing but still a thing
>>768989No and if we did Jane wouldn't know because she doesn't do anything but yell at us.
>>768978jorts are jean shortsno butt for you anon
>>768925Actually, change >>768978 to>Tell her about the last time you had a...nocturnal episode
>>768978[Jorts are a real thing, but have a butt with your example anyway.]
>>768978Jorts. Jean shorts. They shouldn't exist, but they do.
>>768998I never knew such a monstrosity existed.I'd have liked to continue not knowing.Oh well.
>>769006>They shouldn't exist,Counterpoint: >>769005
>>769014>he's never known the joy of daisy dukesyou live a sad life anon
>>769005Good god, I always thought she just took a pair of scissors to a pair of jeans.
>>769031No dude, those things are fucking abominations IRL. Sure you can draw anything and make it look not-horrid but no, they are a thing that should NOT exist.
>>769045Natural jorts, as in what happens when you wear a pair of jeans so long the holes in the knees wrap all the way around and the bottom falls off, are perfectly fine. Daisy dukes are top-tier.Store-bought are abominations, just like pre-ripped jeans. Jorts are something you break in and EARN, so by the time you have them they're perfectly molded to the curve of your ass.
>ice cream discourse>muffin discourse>daisy duke discourseI love this quest
>>769064No, all of them are abominations, only Pre-fabbed ones are on an even LOWER tier of hell than the rest.
what is worse, jorts or jeggings?
>>769103You don't find hot sluts that wear daisy dukes attractive?
>>769108I mean, I like seeing cute girls in either.
>>769036Not in rural AustraliaAnd sad?Not really, but lonely would be a better descriptor.Every time I've worked up the courage to ask a girl out, both times I've been shot down.First time, turns out she was lesbian and in a relationship.Didn't find out until she came out shortly afterward.The other time the girl was moving interstate for a new job in a week or two.So no, not sad.Just fucking cursed with no sex life. Pickings are slim enough in the country as is without that coupled with social anxiety.But enough of me ranting, let's get back to the quest.
>>769124Anyone have virtual scotch? I unaccountedly want one after that.
>>769108Jeggings. Jorts are bad. Jeggings are an abomination that must be purged with fire.Fuck. The horror stories of Dundee on a saturday night. Just no.
>>769108>jeggingsPut some proper stockings or kneesocks on for God's sake. Don't make me look at the third-trimester abortion of my fetish.
gobble is kill
“Alright. But this stays between us.”Her suspicious eyebrow raises. You glance and Keira and Hana. Keira’s still got Hana’s full attention by licking the ice cream off her hand.“Oh no!” You tell Hana. “There’s a bunch on your new shirt, too.” You hope that comes out. She just got it.You turn your attention back to Jane. She gives you a funny look. “What?”“You have them all wrapped around your little finger, don’t you, you Tepig?”“I really don’t have any idea what you’re talking about.” Why is she so insistent on this? You’re just worried about her shirt. You look over to them. What could be so- Oh. Keira really likes ice cream and will suck it right out of the fabric.“Alright.” You turn back to Jane as you gently pat Gobbles head while he struggles with brain freeze. He’s making a high pitched noise that sounds slightly more relieved from the slight pressure. ”I’ve got something.”You sigh and whip it out. The picture of your greatest mistake in judgment. “Store-bought, acid wash jean shorts, and socks with sandals.”Jane examines the picture briefly, then snatches it from your hands.“Hey!”“Relax.” She tells you. “I’m a person of my word. I’ll tell you everything.” She looks around, then drags you to the back room. The shopkeeper doesn’t seem to care.She sighs. “I used to be her biggest fan. She’s only a few years older, but I saw her as this big hero. She was representing our islands in the international games! And she was so young. I wasn’t dumb for looking up to her. Just naive.” She shakes her head. “Anyway. My parents were thinking of getting back together. They both agreed to take me to the games. Things were going well. We were laughing. Remembering the good times. They played our anthem at the games. And then Laki choked. She flubbed it completely.”“Everyone makes mistakes.”Jane almost kicks a freezer, but stops herself. “That’s what I told her. She didn’t even look at me. You know what she said? She said she didn’t want me as a fan! Who tells that to the actual president of her fan club?” Jane looks really worked up now. “She didn’t pick herself up and try again. By the rules she had another try. Everyone forgets that. But she just walked out. She gave up and spent the rest of her time being a lazy, debauched, feckless punk.” Jane looks away. “She never cared about representing the islands or her fans or anything.”>Thank her for sharing>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that way>Ask for the photo back>Laki was probably under a lot of pressure>What happened with her parents?>Something else
>>769275>>Thank her for sharing>>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that way>>Laki was probably under a lot of pressure
>>769275>>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that way
>>769275>Thank her for sharing>"there's probably more too it, but I have no idea what."
>>769275>Laki was probably under a lot of pressureShe is really selfish.
>>769275>Thank her for sharingLet's not push our luck by probing further or trying to defend Laki. We weren't there, and we don't know the circumstances, so let's just thank Jane and move on. Anything else will probably make her mad.>Tell Keira she shouldn't be doing that to Hana.
>>769275>>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that wayShe probably didn't think she deserved fans. She choked, broke down, and she's been regretting it ever since.
>>769275>You glance and Keira and Hana>You glance AND Keira and Hana*at>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that way
>>769275>>Thank her for sharing>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that way
>>769275>>Tell her that Laki probably didn’t mean in that way>Thank her for sharing
>>769295I feel when the stakes are that high you take the second shot, she kind of ran from it and has been sortof half assing everything since.You can tell really, Laki's easily mad but her answer for goals is kind of "Yeah im not getting anywhere remotely related to this anymore".Shes the definition of hasbeen and it probbably got jane's parents divorced.
>>769295>>769303I agree with what you guys are saying, but I think voicing any opinions about this is just going to piss Jane off more, and will hurt our chances of her opening up to us later.She's being selfish and dumb, but we don't have to tell her that right now. John should just keep his mouth shut about this.
>>769275I have a feeling that Laki meant she didn't deserve fans at all. What mess
>>769315>Shes the definition of hasbeen and it probbably got jane's parents divorced.Marriages don't fall apart because the athlete you both like loses. Jane might see Laki that way, but if her parents got divorced, there was a lot more going on.Laki has literally nothing to do with Jane's parents getting divorced.
>>769275>slap her in the faceHow goddamn selfish do you have to be to walk up to someone in what is quite probably the most shameful, self-hating moment of their life and expect THEM to be considerate of YOU.How dense do you have to be to interpret "I don't want you as a fan" in such a context to be a slight against YOU, not an admission of THEIR unworthiness?
>>769328I don't think it will go that horriblyAs long as we are polite about it without saying shit about her the worst is that she will just leave for now but at least have something to think about.
>>769275>Thank her for sharing
>>769351 But anon! everything revolves around her!
>>769275>Something else"No wonder Laki seemed so torn up..."
>>769351>go to cheer up your hero in their lowest moment>they tell you to piss off and then they walk awayI'd be mad as fuck and hold a grudge as well.>How dense do you have to be to interpret "I don't want you as a fan" in such a context to be a slight against YOU, not an admission of THEIR unworthiness?Phrasing. Had she simply said she didn't deserve or want fans in general, that's one thing. But when you single someone out, "I don't want YOU as a fan", well its hard to not take it personally.
>>769380I mean, it's possible that's not how Laki said it at all. Jane does seem to be the sort of person who jumps at shadows when she's upset.That said, if that really is how Laki reacted, then I can see where kid-Jane would take that personally. Jane can be selfish and abrasive, but Laki can be the same way at times. It sounds like Jane saw her at her worst and has it in her head that that's just how she is.
>>769402Possibly, but if Laki's feelings having crossed her mind after all this time, she's still really selfish.
>>769402Jane probably saw her at her worst and clung to that impression.That said, I could see Laki being abrasive. Both of them have their own points of fault. Jane needs to learn to rise above the hostility she receives as an alternative response rather than just lashing out.
>>769413>>769417I agree completely.
>>769380>I'd be mad as fuck and hold a grudge as well.Then you're a dick. Hell, had the two of them ever even spoken at that point? Why would the consolations (condescension) of a stranger matter to an emotionally distraught child? Why the fuck would anyone respond well to someone you don't even know acting like they should be important to you?This might just be my autism speaking, but I can relate strongly to just saying "I fucked it up, it's over" and shutting down even when there's still a chance to unfuck myself. That thinking cost me my college degree and several relationships. Sometimes you don't WANT to be picked up, because it means you can fall again. Sometimes you just want to put your head down on the desk and feign deafness until people forget you and stop looking with disappointed eyes.
“She probably didn’t mean it that way.”“She meant it every day she ignored her fan mail.” Jane glares at you. “I even overheard her say she never cared about the games. She just wanted sponsorships and free travel.”Gobble waddles into the room, looking for more ice cream. “Sorry, Gobble. This isn’t ours.”He frowns.“But I have some good, tasty, nutritious food for you.”He lights up. You can’t help but laugh and smile as he eagerly tries to get you to hurry.You thank Jane for sharing. She just gives you a funny look. “Don’t think you have me fooled like the others. But I have to admit, your cute little show here with Gobble looks pretty convincing.” She holds the photo of you in jorts. “I’ll hold onto this.” She smirks, but it turns into a genuine smile while she looks at it and holds back a laugh. “Hmm. Maybe there’s a chance you’re just a...nah.” Her guard goes back up.The two of you walk out towards the door.“I won, by the way.”“You won?”“You could have found this information from studying old footage or asking around or any number of ways. But this? The only place I’d find something this big is in your pants-”Hana, who was recovered and having a normal conversation with Keira and coming over to you, stumbles.“...pocket.” Jane slides the picture into her pocket. “Get a badge under your belt and maybe I’ll consider letting you have a rematch. By then me and my pokemon will earn three!” Jane leaves with your great shame.You quickly feed Gobble as well as Mace and Bella before deciding your next course of action. It’s getting late. Keira’s buzzing from the ice cream and Hana looks zoned out.>Go sleep at the Pokemon center>Stay up training. You need to get stronger>Go look for Laki and Valerie>Something else
>>769496>Go look for Laki and Valerie
>>769496>Call Hana lewd>>Go look for Laki and Valerie
>>769496>>Go look for Laki and Valerie
>>769496>Go sleep at the Pokemon center>talk with Hana and Keira
>>769496>Stay up training. You need to get stronger>Go look for Laki and ValerieNope.I need to rephrase:Jane isn't just selfish.She's a paranoid cunt.
>>769496>Go look for Laki and ValerieAlso give Gobble a snack to hold him over
>>769496>She smirks, but it turns into a genuine smile while she looks at it and holds back a laugh. “Hmm. Maybe there’s a chance you’re just a...nah.” Her guard goes back up.also huh we might be able to get through to her someday
>>769496Supporting>>769509Man, we need to go hug Laki. Also, Jane wasn't very descriptive, so we need to ask her how her battle went.
>>769496>Ask Hana what's wrong. She's been acting funny.>Realize why once you think back to the conversation.>Ask her if she wants to go look for Laki and Valerie>Try to talk about something less awkwardIn this order.
>>769520Also, like >>769517 suggested, talk with Hana and Keira while we go looking if they're up for it.I'm rather enjoying Hana's filthy mind in the background.
>>769509Herb doesn't understand why Hana has her freakoutsHe is too naive at the moment
>>769520Yeah, kinda.>>769522I hope so. She's interesting, and her motivation makes sense from her perspective, even if that's nit the perspective of a stable person.>>769534No matter who we travel with, Hana needs to be there. She's too good
>>769496>Go look for Laki and Valerie>>769520Maybe she has some sort of disorder?
>>769496>>Go look for Laki and ValerieJane seems to have developed a pathological obsession with winning. She thinks she just won a conversation. It's rather unsettling.
>>769548The needless, obsessive paranoia certainly makes it look that way.>>769547This thread has kind of put Hana on the 'mandatory party member list'.We can try and get Polu to go with Jane so maybe she learns how to chill the fuck out.
[Alright. I'm going to head off to sleep, but thanks for coming! We'll pick things up very early tomorrow.I appreciate everyone's patience. I know updates were a bit slow. I'm really hoping I'll have more time in general this week to run. Best part of my week is running.]
>>769548>>769556She very well might. I mean, it's hard to day based on just these conversations, but that would be an interesting explanation, and it's certainly possible.>>769561Agreed, Hana needs to stick around. She's got a great dynamic with Keira, but I think she and Valerie could get along well, too, if the shopping trip is anything to go by. Even Laki might be okay with her, although they don't seem to have a ton in common. That's kind of a recurring problem for Laki on general, though, and isn't limited to just Hana.
>>769577Thanks for running.I like Jane fractionally more, so good going.
>>769577Thanks, Gobble. You're the best!
>>769577 Night, Gobble. Thanks for running. I look fr ward to these threads every week, so I'm glad we're getting another one tomorrow.
>>769577No worries, Gobble. Real life takes priority.Good thread. It made me not despise Jane. Enjoy your sleep!
>>769577Night Gobble, see you tomorrow!
>>769577thanks Gobble, see you soon>>769589same, she's at least acknowledged that we /might/ not be a mastermindIts also made Hana and Keira seem like much better traveling companions for shenanigans. Just image how our bad luck would compound with Hana's lewd mind and Keira's density
>>769577Goodnight! I'm glad we got to see a bit more about what makes Jane tick. Here's looking forwards to learning about Mace, and taking that bone to the elders.Oh, and getting to know Hana and Val a bit better. I really liked shopping with those two.
>>769646I misread that as shipping those two.
>>769556Jane's a powergaming neckbeard or /pol/lack. I hope John can passively spite her by having friends and being happy and successful.That claim about Laki only being interested in the travel reeks of bullshit.
>>769611>>769646Gotta form the shenanigans squad with Hana, Keira, and Valerie. It's the only way to ensure maximum greatness.Also, pic related is what Jane thinks we are.
>>769496>“She meant it every day she ignored her fan mail.” Jane glares at you. “I even overheard her say she never cared about the games. She just wanted sponsorships and free travel.”>start ditching classes I'm failing instead of dropping them to put off dealing with it as long as possible and put myself further in the hole, so I can feel a little less bad at failing to climb back out (after all, there's no fixing it now that all this stuff has piled up, it's impossible. There's no reason to try)>ignore everything, if you don't open letters from the school you can pretend they're just junk mail, not a notice of suspension. It's not happening, it's not important, think other things>claim you never meant it anyway and don't really care, blow it off quickly before it digs in. if people give up on you that just means they'll stop digging the shame up so you don't have to think about it, maybe lower their expectations so you don't have as far to fall next time>I always wanted to work manual labor. I was a shit programmer to begin with, it's no lossHa ha ha, Laki is me and now it's whiskey time. Fuck this.
>>769675>no Laki Anon pls
>>769680Serious internet hug from me to you. It's okay man; no tears now, only Pokémon.And it's never too late for your dreams. Fuck the haters like Jane.
>>769695laki doesn't fit into the shenanigans squadI like her, but she doesn't cause massive shenanigans like the other members
>>769704She'd be the straight guy.You know, the one that make the shenanigans seem that much more fun.
>>769695Doesn't grab me like the others do. She's great, but I prefer the others to her; same with Polu. There's nothing wrong with either of them. I just don't like them ad much as the other three.>>769704Yeah, exactly.>>769680I was the same way, anon. See a therapist when you can. I waited too long and burnt a lot of bridges by the time I finally got help. It was rough going even after that, and for a few years after, but now I'm finally working a job I love and feeling good about myself. It's never too late.
>>769680I was headed that way a couple years ago. Went down to the dorm basement to cry most days. Real glad my parents didn't let me ignore them.Yeah I dropped out, but a year later I had gotten some counseling, figured out what I wanted a bit better, and was pursuing my goals again at another college. It still isn't easy, and a lot of the same impulses are there, but it's better.
>>769713>laki>the straight guyyou need to read Gobble's spoilersshe's got a blond fetish
You're all crazy. Laki is the one that directs bullying to Herb.
>not wanting LakiY'all niggers got some shit tastes.Like fecal matter in your mouth shit taste.
>>769680Been there, still recovering.Everything works out eventually. Not always how you want it to, but things do have a way of turning out for the better. The only way you ever lose is by giving up.
>>769762I bet Keira is your favorite.Keira is worst girl. Even worst than Jane.
>>769767Wrong on both counts, homo supreme.Hana’s my favorite.
>>769767>not wanting to sully a priestess' aura>wanting the girl that disappoints her biggest fan and yells at a child
>>769782>that picWhy hello boner
>>769726Oh I read that spoiler and I approve, but 'straight guy' is the comedy term for the one who walks in when someone else is doing something funny to make the scene more awkward for them and thus funnier.
>>769790I knowbut it worked to well to let the opportunity go by untaken
>>769798>Laki is currently using Valerie as stress relief.
>>769826now that's a pair I can get behind
>>769838Yeah, I'm shopping them.
>>769826I wouldn't mind that being a lewdbin, honestly.
>>769875Me neither, anon.
Are we going to travel with 2 or 3 companions?
>>770285I'd go with three, I think.
>>770285Either 2 or one overgroup that splits into different, smaller groups of 2-4 for differing interests.
>>770298Probably going by interest is the best but... what are we going to do? Are we going for contest or badges or just traveling?
>>770301Interest is more than just that. But as a general thing I think we should try them both then decide. Some anons really seem to hate the idea of contest, but there isn't any harm in trying one.
>>770301I figure we'll try each at least once and see which ones we want to keep trying at.
>>770308It's funny how will Jane react if we go full contest and don't get a single badge
I think that Herb and his pokemon do seem to really enjoy battling. Contests would probably take a backseat.
>>770350Contest have battles in them, also they have only tried Battles.
John seems like he'll be trying a bit of everything to see what sticks. All his pokemon seem to enjoy battling so far, so that's probably never going to be entirely off the table, but I could also see some of then being up for contests. Bella would probably love all the attention, and if the restraint he showed while mushroom hunting is anything to go by, Gobble is a really well behaved Munchlax. I could see him doing well in contests, too. Plus, we still need to get him into a tiny tux.This is why I'd like to run with the three I like most: Valerie can be our contest friend, Keira can be our lore friend and probably also battle, and Hana seems like she's not against battling, but she strikes me as more of a potential pokemon ranger so far.With those three, we get a little bit of everything. Obviously Polu and Laki are more focused on battling, so I'm thinking they would both make great rivals for us. We're probably going to run into them pretty often, and they can be a constant challenge for us; a hurdle we have to clear that gets bigger as we get stronger.That's how I'd like it to go down, anyway. That would be the most in line with my interests.
>>770373I don't think we should have a static group. We go with whoever wants to. Sometimes this will mean camping with Keira, training with Polu, practicing routines with Valerie, etc. Other people may want to go hang out with each other also.
>>770379While this does seem more realistic than a static group, if we do this, we get less character development opportunities, as the development will be wide, over a bunch of characters, rather than deep, over a few. But I like the idea.
>>770379>>770393Oh, I have no doubt we'll hang out with the others pretty frequently, too. I don't think there's a single friendly character who isn't liked by at least most of us. I was talking about our main group, and I think those three would be best for that. They've got a good dynamic between the three of them that none of them really share with Laki or Polu yet.
>>770393It just means it would be more spread over time, we can still have deep character moments with people. Also five or six including Jane isn't much more than three.
>>769779Hana is worst girl. She's missing half the parts to even be a person.
>>769782Laki a best. Also anything that would piss off Jane is just icing on the cake.
>>770490But she still has the two important parts. Her elbows.
>>770407Laki and Kiera team bullying via just looking at each other is dynamic.
>>770411Eh I think people are just trying to get rid of competition for waifu.
>>770503Oh yeah, I forgot about that. That's a good point, and bullying John has some very real potential. Still, Keira can do that alone if need be, and I like Hana and Valerie more than I like Laki.But an ideal situation would be Valerie going full rich girl and gently teasing John instead. Or maybe both of them.>>770508I mean, I'd mostly just like to thin the herd a bit, but you're not wrong. I'm also doing that.
I'd be happy to travel with Laki, Keira and Hana...
>>770519Drop Hana or Keira for Valerie and we're good.
>>770523We can't drop Hana
>>770519Eh, I'd be satisfied with that. Two out of three is fine, and it's not like I dislike Laki.
>>770527Terrible waifu material. Retread of Robin, now with more suffering. Might be good for comedic value.
I really hope the others have their own opinions of who they want to go with.
I think we shouldn't rule anything out yet. Even Jane. Things will happen as they happen, and it's our job to guide Herb into as many lewd situations as possible, only to be frustrated as he flubs them or ignores the obvious.
>>770551For that we need to always be near Hana and get into as many lewd situations as possible until she thinks that Herb is doing it on purpose.
>>770530Now that's what I call edgy!>>770546Yeah, I hope so too. That would only make sense. I have a feeling they will.>>770551>>770556These guys know what's up.
>>770565That's not edgy? Gobbles the one who took her limbs.
>>770556Hana is just one part of it. Everyone has their kinks to fulfill.
>>770566>says girl with prosthetic limbs is only good for comedic value>not edgy
I like Laki and Hana best, I consider Valerie and Keira bro tier but I am interested in Keira. I'd love to travel with Jane if we can just get past her, she is denser than a harem protagonist. Also Polu is great I want more of him and more battles love me some hard work, determination and bonding in the heat of battle.Also who is everyone's favorite game protagonist and Rival, mine is Gold and Green/Blue
so, for Herb's Halloween costume, what do you guys think of this?
>>770578I meant that her reacting to everything like it's innuendo was funny. Hence the comedic value.I don't like her as a waifu choice and that's primarily because I think she's boring, not because she has prosthetics.>>770581What's it supposed to be?
I like Hana for the travel party and maybe two more companions is how we should do it. I like Valerie too, that rich girl type is interesting.
>>770584king Arthur found it in another quest and thought it looked cool
>>770584My bad, then. I misunderstood.
>>770546Don't say that. The Anons are over here playing waifu match maker. Lord forbid one of them doesn't actually like us.
>>770639Well I mean so far no one seems to dislike us, save for Jane, but she's a cunt.
>>770652She likes Rocky Road, so she isn't a completely terrible person.There's still hope for her.
>>770659What part of "thinks we're some kind of evil mastermind" don't you get? Bitch be crazy!
>>770667What if she was right all along?
>>770667Paranoid people are funny except when they think that you are the evil mastermind.
>>770671Exactly! Then they're just crazy! You never stick your dick in crazy!
>>770667To be fair, John does have like 50 people planning his every move. His very nature as a quest protagonist makes him a fair bit more competent than he might otherwise be. And we do a fair bit of planning.
So on a different note, how do you think Gobble is going to implement John's bad luck?
>>770687Jane is simply the protagonist of a different quest. She's angry, paranoid, and lonely. It all makes sense.I wonder if she'll get a harem...
>>770690Putting us in more bad situations and having rolls we fail be slightly worse.
>>770690Well, Jane is totally fixated in us in a bad way. And we fell in the cave. And maybe Laki spent our mushrom money thinking that we got our share already.
>>770687>>770699>In a parallel universe, Anons are playing Jane, a new trainer out to prove and discover herself, and stop the villain John from whatever evil he has planned>She must go the adventure alone, for that devious bastard has already tricked everyone else into thinking she's the bad guy, with him as the hero>Can she overcome his mind games and free the innocent people of the island from his control?>Also, Laki is a bitch.
>>770699>She's angry, paranoid, and lonely.She doesn't like sand either I'm sure
Finishing up work now. Should have a thread in an hour or less or your thread is free.
>>770781I we don't have a thread in an hour I want ALL the butts
>>770756>implying anyone likes sandits only good in the moment, the instant you aren't surfing/playing a game/making a sandcastle/digging a big hole, you notice the grain of sand right in the worst place
>>770850What's eating you?
>>770900literally the exact same situation
>>770905just add in that im probably getting kicked out of the army for smoking weed once over a year ago. test results came back a few months ago and now it's up to my Battalion commander whether i stay or not.
>>770781awesome, this thread's free now
>>770981Aw nice. We just saved like 10 bucks!

>>770918Sorry to hear about that man, I hope things work out in your favor.
Valerie is secretly best girl. Just wait a few threads, guys.
>>771001Yeah she is such a great girl she has to pay guys to go out on dates with her
>>771001Laki is openly best girl. No waiting is necessary.
>>770981>>770989[Latebutt]>>770918>>769680[I'm glad Laki is coming off as realistic but sorry about it hitting close to home. If it makes you feel any better I can relate.I hope things look up. Just remember that everyone has low points and failures, and that it's okay to forgive yourself. Don't give yourself any more grief than you'd give someone else.]
>>771005I don't like Laki very much.
Laki x Valerie are OTP
>>771009I do, aren't opinions great?
>>771013You appear to be mistaken, it's okay anon it happens.
>>771013That picture is wrong about everything
Laki best girl But only because i have a weakness for sarashi, abs and brown girls.
>>771008Whew that's a mighty fine butt.
>>771020>he doesn't like gardenia>>771019>implying they aren't the perfect couple
>>771033>Gardenia with an already taken Pokegirl
>>771013I can't tell if you're shipping Laki and Valerie because you actually like it or to remove competition.
>>771033I mean, they've barely even spoken to each other, and just happen to be in the same place right now.It's like saying John x anyone is the OTP at this point, except somehow even less true.
So which girl has the best thighs? This is an important question
>>771044M-Muh Laki likes blonde hair!
>>771045Actual poke girl? Or questwise?
>>771050John is blond.
“I think I’m going to go look for Laki and Valerie.”“Are you sure? It’s pretty late and you have that appointment tomorrow.” Hana asks.“Yeah.” After your talk with Jane you just feel like it’s a good idea. Who knows what her and Valerie are up to. You’re about to get your Pokemon ready when you see Keira is squatting down and nodding at Mace as he seems to pantomime something. “I see. I see.”“What’s Mace saying?”She looks up. “He feels like he didn’t do a good job in his battle. His opponent hit harder than he expected. So he wants to get stronger. But he’s worried that getting stronger means more energy problems.” You look down to Mace.>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things out>Tell him he did great against a strong opponent. Typing doesn’t mean everything>Tell him that maybe he should consider evolving>We’ll do better next time>Something else
>>771057>>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things out>>Tell him he did great against a strong opponent. Typing doesn’t mean everything
>>771057>Tell him he did great against a strong opponent. Typing doesn’t mean everything>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things outWe're already on it, no need to worry.
>>771057>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things out>Tell him he did great against a strong opponent. Typing doesn’t mean everything>>771045thighs plural?not Hana
>>771052I meant quest wise, but both answers would be good.>>771057>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things out>Tell him he did great against a strong opponent. Typing doesn’t mean everythingAlso take some of this new Ace trainer design, I love it
>>771057>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things out>Tell him he did great against a strong opponent. Typing doesn’t mean everything
>>770994>You got insight into her as a person and her issues with Jane>With JaneI mean that's kind of true, but... not what you wanted to say, I guess. Did I do well? Do I get a butt now?
>>771045Best abs/legs/butt is probably Laki do to her profession.After that who knows.
>>771072[Is this new?]
>>771078It is. And pretty nice, if I may add.
>>771057>Don’t worry, we’ll see the professor and figure things out>Something elseAsk him why he doesn't want to evolve. We don't know why, right?
