You are Luc Maddison-Remy, Son and Attendant of Mayor-Captain Matthieu Remy. You have had a strange few days since your father took you to deal with some kind of emergency. He barely talked to you for the full ride since you were both pushing your enigmas to the limit. But that was okay, you were going to your first actual adventure as an Attendant!You keep your fists clench as you bow in supplication, "You win Lord Nobunaga. It was an honour to be allowed to challenge you." "No child. You are the victor. Had you served the tea for anyone else it would have moved them to tears." He sighs, "You shall not be stopped my by ancient tastebuds." his laugh is quiet and oddly smokey, reminding you of a chimney."Go to your reward, you shall find it quite welcoming I think." He says with a smile, "I am proud one so young as you was able to challenge me in this ancient art and moreso, defeat me. I shall rest easy, knowing civility lives on in this world through you." He bows in the most submissive manner he can, going to his knees and resting his forehead on the ground.You try to accept your victory with grace, turning to Honamurei to offer a thumbs up - but she is not there. In fact you are in a room you haven't seen before.> Panic> Curse> Wonder if this is another test> Write-In Luc quest should finish tonight, I have no plans until college tomorrow morning.

>>770940> Wonder if this is another test
>>770982>>770975"I wonder if this is another test." You say aloud as you look into the room. The floor is stone but the walls are mirrors. You feel very small, but more than that... you feel watched.You walk forward, but it feels like you've only taken one step, despite feeling like you've walked for ten minutes when you come to an ornate marble slab. The first slab has what you need. Seals that will bless your weapons with the power to cleanse the demon's blood. Minerva says.You take the small sack sitting rather unceremoniously on the slab. It feels like a bag of marbles, which makes you smile recalling all the time your father beat you. The Next Slab. Will have whatever you want. But You must leave something behind. > You wish people would take you more seriously> You want to know what happened to your dad.> You want to be more powerful> Write-In
>>771127>> You wish people would take you more seriouslyNot sure what to choose, but this seems like something a child would say right?
>>771127>> You want to know what happened to your dad.
This is an important vote so going to wait until more people get in on it.

>>771127>> You wish people would take you more seriously
>>771279>>771278>>771254>>771163>>771155You take a long moment. You know that deals with gods tend to be important life changing things, all the stories tell you to be careful about them. In fact, a lot of the ones with sad endings usually have someone's biggest wish becoming a curse. You really don't want that to happen to you, so you thinkOf your father,Of how strong Purps and Honamurei are,Of how much is stung having your eyes covered when meeting Frank and the way everyone goes out their way to protect you or keep you away from things. and it's that last one that stings. The rest you can change; but this offer might be your only shot of being treated like a gods damned adult."I want a lot of things. But I want people to take me more seriously." You say with steel in your spine and tongue. A bold decision and admirable goal child.

>>771954>>771595>>771439>>771424>>771411"I present the tea leaves that defeated your guardian." You say to the... mirrored light.You feel burning. You feel burning everywhere. The last thing you see as your eyes percieve nothing but orange, then red then piercing white. Is the true form of Minerva as her giggle echoes around your mind.Something has changed in you and you think Minerva has begun to take interest in what path you will walk.[CONTINUED]
You are Purps. Amnesiac Starborn, blessed of Minerva, The Purple Firefly, Saviour of Grinnsmon and really fucking tired of Rono Pass.You were doing your job pretty damn fine until some hunchbacked fuck decided that his "MAAAAASSSSSTEEEEERRRRRR" needed to be consigned to the family crypts. The little prick had to break the wards to get in and that let the wolf men in and now you're fighitng and- THWACK You polesaw slams into two jumping wolfmen and sends them throught the statue of Minerva. Sorry Boss You think as you slam your saw down onto a wolfman's head. IT spits blood up at you as your rev through it;s skull, soon to be joined by the pew's splinters slamming into the skin of you and an alpha wolfman who was sneaking up on you.As it yelps you spin and plunge claws into it. Tackling it to the ground and flipping off it into the air. You see fur for the full lenth of the hall, howls, barks, growls - hide, teeth and claws. You can cut through these things like butter but they just keep getting back up. Hold out. They'll be out soon Purps!

>>772373>> [PRIDE] 「MINERVA'S LANTERN」!
"MINERVA'S LANTERN!" You scream as a claw comes for your throat. You grab it and pull it in. Burning the fucking wolf to a blistering mess.A claw rakes across your back and you spin, letting your own claw shoot on a wire into the thing's eye. A bite snaps behind you and you step for and kick back with your leg, hearing a yelp. You let your trusty old saw form and duck while sinning. Cutting the legs out from under the wave of wolves harrying you. They part like wheat before you and you use the breathing room wisely. You charge before they recover, weaving a tapestry of exquisite death. You ram your saw in a jaw and rev it, kick the beastaway to get slack. You recall and leap over it, cutting through three skulking wolves, as you land a stray claw catches your mouth on the way down and in retalitation you can't help but curb stomp one of the ankleless ones.You back up against a wall, letting them think they have you. For the first time since you woke up from your twenty minute nap. You smile.> Fire Breath> Leap into the press and detonate latern> Write-In

>>773097>>772843>>772573>>772561>>772531You inhale and hold your breath for a seocnd as they all seem to surge forward in tide of fur, muscle and death. You can't see anything beyond browning bloodied fur and the smell of burning hair filled the air as you echale.A now familiar and comforting torrent of purple fire poured forht from your gullet and you find yourself shutting your eyes from it's uncaracteristic brightness.Roll 1d20+2 for effectiveness.

>>774171>>773515>>773470>>773378>>773250It burns like a bursting star, and two Wolfmen crumble into ashes. You can't help but be impressed, though your sensation of pride takes aknock as you're quickly forced into a series of blocks and counterstrikes. Whizzing to and fro, your blade claims a few arms as it carves it's way through your attackers. But you're feeling like a sword against the sea.

>>775872>>775825>>775817You flip backwards until your feet touch the wall. Then jump backwards and upwards, enjoying the confusion of the wolfmen as you gain height. You sigh, getting your wind and noticing the blood pouring from your side, back and jaw.This is vaguely troubling.The Wolfmen are cowed as their alphas go to the wall and sniff it.

You grin.You feel glee that one of your ideal situations for your extremely situational enigma. You giggle maniacaly as your saw orbits you faster and faster and faster.A slight electrical charge fills the air and you click your fingers, sending your buzzsaw's orbit wider and wider until a series of wolfmen wrists are severed. Claws remain attached to the wall. Wolfmen tumble, howling as they all soar through the air. You let yourself fall and land on the handless wolves, each one recieving a swift slash to the throat from your claws.By the time you've hopped from body to body you've crossed most of the hall and end up back where you started, on the switch at the altar. The light shines down on you dramatically and smashing the statue of Minerva earlier revealed the mechanism the light must hit.

You take a deep breath. You put your saw in it's holster and slide the silken glove you've worn for so long off of your hand. The world goes quiet as you focus.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOGkZsuFILUThe first stance of Sunshine Fist.You inhale and slide your left foot back along the ground, turning it at a right angle to the direction you're facing, you bend your knees even as you slide the right leg forward a touch. A wide stance perfect for step 1 of all techniques in the sunshine fist martial art - blocking.You square your shoulders, rising to your full height. Quite impressive for a woman, but still the beasts silently charging towards you tower over you.There's no fear, worry, concern or frustration. No rage, no pride, no jealousy. All emotions fade away as you extend your right arm and bring your left arm close to your ribs for your shattering counter.You soul screams out and your body begins to glow gold. Your hair turns to that same white that it did when Minerva belssed you and the area above your crotch exudes a blinding red flame brand as the first wolfman's jaws come within six inxhes of your face.A claw reaches in and you catch it on your right forearm. The wolfman whole body shudders and the air around is violently displaced. It is with no emotions filling you that your golden fist slams into the creature. As you connect with a punch to the sternum it is sent spiralling back thrhought the very rock itself. It glows white as it sails through the air like a shooting star through a midnight sky - the sheer velovity with which it travels tears the other wolfmen apart. One collision robs an alpha of it's head and another just explodes into blood... which then turns white.As the wolfman shaped whole to the outside settles. The pack are stunned, you can see Minerva rising alongside her twin brother through the gaping wound in the rock. But you don't move, even when you realize the wounds caused by Sunshine fist haven't healed. You killed nine wolfmen with one counter and terrified the fearless and mindless monsters. You close your eyes and exhale while you return to your stance. [ZEN UNLOCKED] Zen Active > Wait> Attack> Write-in

With a pace that eclipsed Honamurei's your foot left the ground and you darted forward for a blistering left hook.Only for your aura to disapear as you broke the rules of sunshine fist. Block and Counter.More than that, you feel frustration. Claws come into existense at your waist. But not before your hesitation and failure at sunshine fist costs you. Teeth sink into your shoulder as a runty werewolf latches on.You are about to react with what force you can muster when claws are stabbed into your stomach. Blood spurts form your mouth and into a wolfman's face. a long tongue reaches out and laps it up. Before it slides from your wounded jaw all the way up to your temple.You kick out at it, sending it back.You get your left claw and swipe at the eyes of the wolf latched onto your shoulder. But it doesn't budge and you are bodily ripped from his grasp by an alpha's backhanded blow. Most of your shoulder is gone, you have a hole in your stomach and you can't lift your arms to find your feet. Collapsing in a pile of blood and viscera, you can't help but feel an emotion you can't understand. But it pushed away as he pounces upon you, predatory excitement and bloodlust dripping down on you from his snout and mouth. Drool and dried blackened blood falling into your eyes and wounds as you feel that unique mortal terror of the prey about to die.You tear your eyes away as the beast lingers. Seeing a stranger in a blue coat. He clicks his fingers and the beast explodes from the inside. STARBORN 19.5 END

>>776555If you guys got an odd then Honamurei would have been first out of the vault.Evens was the now Teen Luc.Turns out there's some relative time progression shenanigans with that there vault being not in this plane...
>>776565So luc is a horny teenager now?Will he start masturbating to sun?
>>776530>I'm happy with how this turned out.Eviscerated?
>>776565>Teen Luc is Roy MustangWill Purps be able to control her [LUST]?
>>776575He'll start getting horny in sunlight as he fantasieses the warmth as Minerva caressing him, he will masturbate at night to seem gentlemanly in Minervas precence.
>>776583I was talking from a writing point of view. Rather than revealing Zen 40 threads earlier than expected or Purps vs the Horde.We got some cool moments I think from Luc Quest and The Purps Quest bit.
>>776575>>776591>>776595Motherfucker literally just got puberty slapped into his body by a god he wants to bang. Have Fun Kiddo.
>>776607So does this mean Minerva is smitten with Luc and was secretly ecstatic for him to choose what he did so she could age him up to avoid squick?
>>776607I hope this won't change Purps and Luc's reletionship to be more lewd. Kinda liked the Big sister/younger brother thing going on.Luc can waifu the sun if he wants. And Purps can help him out.
>>776638Can we call it Operation BIG BANG?
>>776633 I am a Godess I do not get smitten. >>776638I do not plan on it but like I have said, anons rule the quest. If they decide they want the /D/IO then that's what Purps will try to do.>>776648>>776650Sure whatever. I'm just the QM man. Metamemes are all on you guys.
>>776661Minerva pls stop lying to yourself.You may fall for it but we won't.Just perform let luc into your core and perform fusion already.(wink, wink, nudge, nudge)
>>776661I sense some defensiveness in that statement, Minerva ;^)Also, question for Luc: What do you think of your new fire powers? Oh, and puberty, how's that so far?
>>776661>I am a Godess I do not get smitten.So its straight to unconditional love then, understandable why would a god take anything less!
>>776661>I am a Godess I do not get smitten.Tell that to every non-abrahamic religion.
>>776672 Luc: ... I've always had explosion magic. But yeah... I have hair in places now.>>776677>>776672>>776669 You're lucky the inquisition answer to the senator and not me.
>>776697Don't worry we won't tell luc how lovesick you are.No need to be in such denial though.So what do you think of luc(Besides the unconditional love) so far?
>>776708 He's bold that's for sure. I mean, Oda won't shut up about him. I swear if Luc ever meets one of his lady descendants, I think an ancestor ghost is going to "conveniently" appear to try and get them to marry him.
