You then decided to take a little bit of time off with Shirabut and spend some time with Yuki and Aki. Currently, you are speaking with Yuki on your dinner date about what you may or may not be willing to do come time to face the evil man that has been haunting you for months.
“That’s simple Yuki, I would….. I would…. I….” You tried to answer what was on your mind but the more you tried the more you hesitated. You thought you may be willing to do whatever it takes but thinking about what that entails…. Disregarding lives, deaths of friends… your imagination ran wild. And you didn’t want that. You shook your head, “I… don’t know. And I don’t want to know.” rubbing your arm with a mixture of concern, nervousness and a tinge of fear. Yuki looked at you plainly, after a moment noticing your discomfort she begins to speak in another, more upbeat manner, “Well then what are you planning to do about Shirabu’s castle…. Its rather drab don’t you think? It needs more color than just black and red… I was thinking white and a bit of pink, with some silver lining of course.”“I don’t know about that… that white just might turn a nasty red color depending on what happens.” You said feeling snarky. Yuki’s ability to read you are quite impressive for her to instantly change the subject like that. “Ohh you’re right, then how about this, we spruce of the decor, all those black knights, and small braziers are terrible for atmosphere. Oh! Then we can add some plants, those are wonderful for making the space feel more alive! Ohh and then…” Yuki was the one now letting her imagination run wild but in a good way. Her dedication to fashion and interior design was enough to make you smile as you continued on with your date.
>>929015You enjoyed a pleasant two hours with Yuki. You talked about all manner of things, but besides earlier, it was virtually all fluff talk, which was very much welcome to your ears. You two ended up chuckling a bit at each other just like old times, and you feel that your plan to reconnect with your best friend is working. At the end of the night, Yuki hugged and you two kissed softly. “Thanks for tonight,” she said, “I had a lot of fun.” “Me too,” you responded with a slightly tighter hug before easing up and you two parting ways for the night. You walked back to your room and once inside lightly close the door and yell to yourself “FINALLY!” as you jettison the dress shoes from your person. Infernal shoes did nothing today but dig into your skin and make it painful to walk, and after hours your feet seems to have turned bright red and swollen. “God it's going to take at least a couple days for this not to hurt.” Why does dressing like a woman have to be so hard sometimes? You asked yourself. Sighing you pick yourself up, change and crawl your way into bed. You were able to do so rather easily. Perhaps too easily. Usually, your two sisters fight for space on the bed with you being the unfortunate one in the middle but you notice them to be missing. It was rather late, and by this time they usually are asleep, but since the war was over they could likely afford to stay up and about if they wished.>Go find them>Sleep, you have another date tomorrow after all>Write in
Have to go, be back in a couple of hours and then I will be on for the rest of the day
>>929025>"Kahehana go to find out if my other two little sisters are safe. If they are, come back because we will talk in my dreams.">If she comes back go to sleep and talk to her in your minsscape."You are growing quite fast aren't you?"
>>929433>"Kahehana go to find out if my other two little sisters are safe. If they are, come back because we will talk in my dreams.">If she comes back go to sleep and talk to her in your minsscape."I think I figured a way for you to temporary get a body. If I get another little girl potion from the old man it might work. Also I want yoir head to explore my head and find out what else is there, I think that maybe someone have me fake memories about something."
>>929433>>929460It was probably nothing….. But… “Kagehana go find out if your sisters are safe. If they are come back we can talk for a bit inside my mind, or however you do it.”“Alright Onee-chan.” Your shadow extends from you and stretched toward a nearby window. To your surprise she came back rather quickly. “They are outside in the courtyard fighting.” she explains.“Fighting?! Why?!” They have never fought like this before and so far your time here has been fine so why now? “They’re not very good at it, they aren’t taking each other seriously or anything, just slapping swords against each other in fancier ways.” “Oh, so they are sparring.” You wipe off a sweat of relief. You couldn’t imagine there would be a reason to fight but if they were Shirabu would probably decimate Taka. But practice fighting is good, Taka probably wants to improve her abilities after what happened or for some reason or another. Either way, it wasn’t anything to be concerned about. “Thanks,” you say as your shadow decreases to its normal size. You close your eyes and lay back down to find yourself in a familiar coffee shop, but sitting across from you was your little sister, who admittedly, is starting to look quite close to your age.
>>930138“So, what did you want to talk about.” she asked plainly. Looking her over you couldn’t help but say, “You are growing quite fast aren’t you?”“Huh, oh yeah.” She took a minute to look herself over. “I guess it’s like you have been wondering, I think I am feeding off emotions, I think it started happening once you starting getting more “intimate with all those people.” That’s what you thinking. “Did you ever get bigger before then?”“A bit. When I was with you originally I thought I was getting bigger when you got scared. That was also when I could start messing with you, the voices and hands and everything.” You remember, unfortunately. She continues, “but this is going much faster than then.” She looks over herself, turning her arms legs and hand, “I don’t know, I don’t think it's bad, though, I am getting a bit stronger I think the more I grow.”Interesting. “Ohh yeah,” you just remembered that something had been bothering you. “You know if you get strong enough I could find you a body for yourself if you want at least temporarily. Idk exactly how we would go about doing that but maybe if I get one of Auriel's potions it would work.” “If you can look into it that would be interesting, though I got to say after so many months I have grown rather used to being in here.” You’ll take that as a compliment. “Also, I was thinking about you exploring my mind a bit to find out what might be going on. For some reason…” one you can’t quite understand, “I feel that maybe you have fake memories of something….”Kagehana nodded, “I can check, but this might hurt a bit for you.” You nod and understand the risks. Kagehana disappears and her shadow melds into you. All of a sudden you get a massive migraine, and it felt like your head was close to splitting. You grab your head and grit your teeth in pain for as long as you needed to. The pain only lasted a few minutes as Kagehana starts to materialize before you again. “I don’t see anything fake there Onee-chan. It was a little sad though going through all of your life since you were back on this ‘Earth.’” She looked rather down having seen your memories. You couldn't blame her. Shaking off the pain in your head you say, “Thanks, Kagehana.”>That will be all>Can you change what you feed on to grow?>Write in
>>930144"Not even the memories from before I came to this world? Then why... why I can't remember my parents names?"

Rolled 18 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>930374
>>930425>>930425It takes a bit of time thinking but you remember that your dad's name was Randy, and your mom's name was Holly. At least that is what you remember. You shake your head again. All this introspective thinking is starting to make you panic a bit. It came across your mind once that you may perhaps be an orphan, but you were raised with your family for as long as you could possibly remember. The only one who would know the answer to that question for sure would be Lily, but she has been gone since that fateful night. Guess there is no use worrying about it for now. You thank Kagehana again for her help and soon drift into sleep. -------------------------------------------------------You wake up the next day flanked by your little sisters who were out cold. You tended to wake up a bit later than most, but usually, they are up before you so seeing this was surprising. Then again, depending on how hard they sparred they could have really tired themselves out. After thinking about the sparring, you grew worried and quickly through over the sheet to double checked all of Taka's limbs. Still attached. Another sigh of relief as has become common recently. you soon get up and head for the door. Rubbing your eyes you walk through the hallway when you run into Aki. Well, actually she ran into you, literally. "Ohhph" you fall to the ground after getting barreled into. "Hey?!" Aki notices it was you she ran over, "Ohh my! I'm so sorry, I just was trying to get ready for...... I'm so sorry." She frantically fidgets stuttering as she did so.You begin picking yourself off the ground. "That's okay Aki, I wasn't mad just startled." You dust yourself off once you get standing again. "Now, what is the is-." You looked to Aki but she was just gone. not a single trace of her where you were at. "sue... huh..." Probably just nervous about your date tonight, she doesn't know what you are planning after all. But if you had to say, a candle light picnic at night was a perfect change of pace for you two. Still, that wasn't until tonight and you had the day to yourself. >Spend time with your sisters>Spend time with a member of the party (who?)>spend all of today making sure tonight is perfect>Write in
>>930556>Spend time with your sisters"Aki is... easier to please. She is a monster girl so she is more forgiving to me acting like one. At least the cruelty part, she might be less forgiving if I cheat on her again."
>>930572Yes.>Spend time with your sisters
Sorry for the slow update some shit came up at home.
>>930572>>930584You decide to spend some quality time with your sisters on before tonight. Aki, after all, would likely be happy with anything you put together so thinking about it too hard is unnecessary. But spending time with your sisters is going to have to wait until they get themselves out of bed. So you waited.You know when you first sat down you figured, 1 - 2 hours tops. But no, 4 hours passed when the door creaked open and by that time you were nearly asleep. Yawning your sisters stumbled out of the room. “Onee-chan?” Taka said while stretching noticing you. You woke up immediately and you made sure to express your response as eloquently as possible, “uhh ahh, oh! ah! Yes!”....nailed it!“Onee-chan what's up?” “I just thought it would be nice for the three of us to spend a bit of time today. “Really all three of us!” Shirabu asked excitedly. “Four came a voice from over your shoulder. “Ohh that’s right Shadow sister!” Shirabu said equally excited. Their minds began racing with possibilities for today, but first, you needed to know something.“But first you two, what were you doing sparring last night?” “Ohh,” they both say before Taka begins to explain, “I wanted to practice a bit for when we fight next. The time we are here is nice but I want to be ready for who we fight next, especially when we run into him.” Yeah, so about what you were thinking. “I see, thanks.” You smile, “Okay, now let's get to the fun. Shirabu there is a park nearby right?” “Yeah, it's just a bit north of here.” She hops around eager to head out. Seeing her giddiness you get up and walk with them out of the castle for a day of fun. Getting to the park you decided to just play a ton of fun group games. You started simple with tag but then progressed into a game of four-square. You hadn’t played four-square in quite a while, but you used to almost every recess period in elementary school so you figured you had an edge over your sisters. That was until Shirabu hit the ball so hard it flew over 50 meters after first hitting your square. Taka was faster than you and Kagehana could fly. It was like trying to keep up with Usain Bolt with these kids after a while.
>>931050Growing weary after your 3 games of two on two soccer you laid down in the soft grass. You had a bit too much fun you think and Shirabu and Taka were showing signs of fatigue. Kagehana looked perfect, though, she has been acting most of the games you have played thus far. Taka and Shirabu explain that it’s because she is a “flying cheater!” as they have taken to yelling. Kagehana laughs it off and whizzes around in the air.Finally settling down your sisters sit down next to you all breathing heavily with smiles on their faces. Maybe 15 minutes passed of you all just laying next to each other. It was quite a warm scene you would say. The sun also happened to be in just the right position to give you that warm afternoon glow that encouraged you to take a nap. You were almost happy to oblige but being late for your date tonight could be catastrophic.You sit up but notice that soon that Taka actually fell asleep and Kagehana quite in your head. Shirabu looked to be tired and leaning against you. Aggressively so that she encourages you with her body to pet her head while she gets comfortable. “Hey, Onee-chan?” came the young demon lords voice. “Hmm?” you casually acknowledge her question as you petted.“You’re all going to leave soon, aren’t you… I wanna come,” she says softly.“We have been over this,” you started but were interrupted, “I know. I’m too important or whatever.” she grabs onto you. “But we stopped the war, found out about who killed my parents, and now with the system you set up the island should be stable for at least a few decades.” She got eager, “I wanna come and help! Taka told me about that guy who you are fighting and I don’t want him to take any of you three away. Or worse,” She got a tad angered, “Stuck here unable to do anything when I could have helped.” She hugs you, “Please Onee-chan. Please, please, please, please, pretty please!” She begs.>No you need to stay here>Yeah you should come along>Write in
>>931076>No you need to stay here"Without a leader demons would just go to war again."
>>931105>No you need to stay here
>>931105>>931115“I’m sorry Shirabu,” You pull her away from you just slightly, “But you need to stay here. If you don’t then the demons without their leader will just get riled up and head off to war again. That could threaten all that we have done here.” You continue to pet her as you try to let her down softly.“Onee-chan…” Her eyes begin to water before she hugs you. “I… I know you’re right, Onee-chan is smarter than me. But still, I don’t want you all to go after all this!” You hug and console her to the best of your abilities, “I know Shirabu, but this isn’t the last time, we’ll come and visit when we can. You are very important to both me Taka and Kagehana so of course we would want to take you with us but for now, you need to be here. Onee-chan needs you to be here to make sure those idiots don’t ruin anything after all, right?!” She giggles, “Hehe, yeah I guess…” She goes quite for a bit before pulling back to look at you, “Promise me! Promise me, that you will come back.” “Of course we will, I promise you.” Shirabu smiles before hugging you again. Tears were still falling ever slowly down her face but she at least understood that you were coming back and that she was needed here. After a little while of staying in the grass together, you woke up Taka and headed back to the castle where you started to get everything ready for your date tonight.Picnic and stars are easy, you just need cloth, candles, food, and the right time. But you wanted to really make the mood right with some soft and quiet music. “Shit!” you said quietly to yourself as you realized, you had no idea what kind of music Aki might like. >set up an elaborate plan to learn her secret musical tastes >infer based on her person d20+3
Rolled 19 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>931365
>>931384>infer based on her person d20+3
>>931384>>931390>>931400Panicking you quickly pace in a circle while thinking. Okay, she likes children, me, and… SCULPTING! Okay. now when sculpting happens what do they listen to… classical? I think yeah. Alright and where are all famous sculptures from…. Reconnaissance Italy? Or something like that. Okay, and who was alive around that time who made music..” For some reason you are getting the vision of a sheep person. But what does your head mean by this? “Bahhh, bahhh, bahhh, Bahhhkkk, Bahk?!” You think for a second. Bahk! Yeah that it is. You run down the halls to try and find Shirabu, who was sitting in the living room polishing her sword. “SHIRABU!” you yelled as you ran to her.“Onee-chan is something wrong?” She asks while you catch your breathe.Huffing you ask, “Do you guys have any Bahk?” She tilts her head, “Who?” “A guy who plays classical music?” “What’s a ‘classical music’?” FFUUUUUUCCCCKKKKKK. Of course, they don’t know what classical music is that's all from back home. You grab your little sister, “Is there someone here who can play the violin, like really, really, well?” “Yeah I think so, there was a boy named Johnny who was able to beat a powerful devil in a fiddling contest. “C-Can he play something softer than fiddle?” “Like what?” Damn, you’re no musician so it's hard to describe, but you come up with a good metaphor. “Alright, if he plays the fiddle like normal then let's call that rough, I want him to play something lighter and soft like air.” She just kind of looks at you and tilts her head further. On second thought, that metaphor was garbage. “Just bring him and tell him to play slow and sweetly okay?” you tell her. “Like Air?” she asks. “Sure, like Air.” You then spent the next several hours preparing everything else to be as good as you can make it. If all else fails you’ll just have to just tell Johnny to scram. After setting up the picnic, selecting the best scented candles and preparing a feast for two, you thought you had everything perfect. Thankfully the one other factor you couldn’t control, the weather, decided to be cooperative as it was a clear night. Shirabu introduced you to Johnny who was a short little imp holding a rather old looking fiddle that had gold inlaid into it. He seemed like a rather nice kid who thanked you for letting him play and apologized ahead of time if he messed up. Nothing much you could do about it so you just told him again to play it soft if he can and Shirabu aided the “Air” party that she is so hung up on.
>>931572With everything ready you went to grab the woman in question, after dressing in your dress clothes again of course. Minus the shoes, they could burn for all you cared. You knocked on her door and who else could have opened it but a beautiful basilisk nervously answering. “H-Hello..” She nervously said. She looked absolutely stunning. A red dress modified to fit her figure, her hair was done up in a fancy way that parted in a new style that radiated elegance. She must have gotten some help from Yuki with this, but still the most beautiful feature of her was of course her golden eyes, which you could stare clearly into as she wasn’t wearing her mask. She notices your starring and nervously turned away from you gaze, “I-Is there a problem.” “Ohh no, Aki, you just look beautiful.” You bow slightly and offer her your hand, “Madam if you would give me the honor of escorting you this evening?” She giggles at your over the top proposition for a date. She gave you her claw which by now you grew rather used to holding in your hand. You seal the deal and get another giggle out of her you kiss the back of her claw. Once her giggles cease you two walk through and out of the castle to your prepared courtyard, now with Aki infinitely more relaxed. Once outside you guide her to your rather simple set up of candles and blanket were you first lead her to coil down. Once situated you begin small talking and you gave Shirabu the signal for Johnny to begin playing. You winced in anticipation of pain but then were thankfully greeted by some of the softest violin music you have ever heard. Relieved that somehow your “Air” metaphor worked you begin to talk in earnest.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrVDATvUitA“Have you enjoyed our time in the demon lands thus far?” you ask.“It is noticeably more peaceful, less fights, more people talking amongst each other and this beautiful music!” I did not know they had this type of musical style here. You answered honestly, “Me either." “I feel, that now that things here are wrapped up, it's best to enjoy our peaceful time while we have it. Wine?” you offer. “I would love some, but you couldn’t possibly be of legal age.” You smile, “In the demon lands I most definitely am.” She lightly pushes on your shoulder and jokes, “You’re terrible.”
>>931719Things were progressing smoothly when you start to see behind Aki in the horizon Shirabu is waving her arms frantically to get your attention. “?” You can’t cut away from this but you send Kagehana stealthily over to talk to her sister. Moments later in your mind, you hear, “We have a problem Onee-chan. Apparently, that devil johnny beat a bit ago is back and challenging him again to a contest.” “NOW?!?!?!” you scream in your mindscape. Aki asks in noticing your concern, “Is something wrong?” Nearly sweating you poorly attempt to wave it off, “No, nothing at all, haha, by the way, what do you think about Adrian as Emperor….”You start talking again with Kagehana, “Okay, then tell them to sort it out later.” “I would, “she starts, “But Shirabu said Johnny is too prideful of his skills to back down and has accepted right here, right now.” “YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.” You exchange nervous looks in the distance where Shirabu is as you start to hear a distinct tone shift in the musical arrangement for this evening. >Let it happen, it can’t be so bad right?>Interfere somehow (how?)>Panic>Write inSorry this one took me a while to get fully out, I just kept getting ideas while I was writing it
Heading out for today, I don't post on Monday but I'll be back on Tuesday. probably in the evening around 6pm PST or so
>>931727> Screw it, jump Aki like an animal in heat and hug and kiss her.
>>932016> Screw it, jump Aki like an animal in heat and hug and kiss her.
>>932016>>932165Shit, you just heard a tinge in the music but you had to salvage the situation or at least distract Aki from the music until Shirabu can figure something out and solve the situation. You heard a twang come from the sound of a warming up fiddle when you threw all caution to the wind and embraced Aki.“?!” She gasps in surprise, dropping her wine glass on the ground. You don’t let her question your actions and immediately jump on the chance to kiss and silence her. Her eyes grow wide in shock, but she does not resist wholeheartedly to your actions. She tries to speak, making random noises that are likely pleas of “why? What? Wait!” but instead it is a jumbled mess of letters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7rxl5KsPjsSuddenly though your ears become perplexed. What was the new music that sounded as beautiful as it had before. You could have sworn the revving of fiddles began but what was this? This music started to play in tandem with Johnny's music of earlier. “They are dueling with this music?” you thought. Trying to stop Aki’s protests with your tongue but your intrigue slows you and she gains ground. “W-What are you doing all of a sudden?!” She asks, having pulled herself away from you. You nervously shrug,“S-Sorry Aki, you just looked so beautiful this evening I was unable to hold back after all this time.”She blushes, “Well, I appreciate the compliment… but can we perhaps wait until later, I was enjoying or night like this.”“Ohh, of course!” you say readily to her proposition. You just hope the musical arrangement doesn’t get any more crazy.
>>937754Thankfully it didn’t, and when Aki commented on the new music noticing the distinct blend felt ominous and relaxing. And that she found it rather appropriate for the demon lands. You nervously say, “Yeah I thought so too when I first heard it.” Time went by and soon you found the two of you laying in the blanket and soft grass gazing at the stars. “Wow.” you couldn’t help but awe at the sights of space before you, as nebulas seemed to reach across the sky, stars you could have sworn were dancing before you as the shone brighter and brighter. The Moons ominous dwarfing of the other celestial bodies entranced the eyes. And behind it all was the black void that threatened to pull you in if not for the shining lights in the sky. Aki comments while stretching, “Ahh this breeze is perfect.” She turns her body to face you and notices your entrancement with the sky. She scoots over next to you and joins your gaze. “Beautiful isn’t it,” she adds.“Yeah, back home our skies are always filled with artificial light and you can’t see anything like this.” It was rather sad that the people back home are forced to miss such a spectacle like this. Some aspiring astronomers would kill for the naked eye view you currently have. If not for science, at least for appreciation. Some time passed with you two laying next to each other, Aki takes your arm into hers and cuddles close next to you, getting you to share your warmth with her. You thought that the evening all said and done was rather sweet and her smiling face only confirmed that. Looking up again into the sky you notice a streak of light pass through the void. You pointed out, “Ahh a shooting star!” you said excitedly. “Back home they say you should always make a wish when you see one.” “Really?!” Aki responded. “Well then…” the basilisk closes her eyes with her face pointed in the direction of that moving light.You do the same.What will you wish for?>Great Power>Love>Something of want (what?)
>>937777>I wish for the people I care for to be safe
>>937829>I wish for the people I care for to be safe
>>937829>>937875You think for a second about the possibilities of a wish. I mean you could wish for anything, right? So you could wish for anything, but was there anything, in particular, you really wanted. Power? That would be nice for dealing with the men that threaten you, but the thought left a sour taste in your mouth. Everlasting love? That would certainly fit the moment but you wish for something that was a bit more than that.You place your hand over Aki’s claw as you start your wish, “I wish…” you started, “I wish for the people I care for to be safe.” You subconsciously said to the stars. It was the best way to eloquently state the feelings you were having. You could easily wish for attainable things, but you care more about the people around you, and any amount of supernatural help with that is all you could help for. Aki lightly with her claw brings it to your face and helps you turn to face her before she softly kisses you. It was far less aggressive than what happened earlier in the date. After a brief few moments, she pulls away. “You know what I wished for?” she asked. “No, I am afraid I don’t?”She smiles, “For all of us to be safe and together after all of this.” She holds onto you tightly and you return in warmth. “Don’t worry Aki. I know for sure that we will be together after all this, I can’t possibly imagine my life without you or the others after all this” Your hug suddenly tightens, “I promise.” Aki pulls away slightly and looks you in the eyes. Her golden eyes were equally entrancing as the night sky, you found yourself lost in them as she said to you softly, “I love you.” “I love you too.” You respond as you once again pull her closer for a kiss. It was another soft and warm embrace, but this time you felt Aki’s tail begin to coil around your lower body. Slowly her body began to squeeze yours. You move your arms around her shoulders and neck and pull her even closer to yourself as her claws begin exploring your dress to find the simplest way to take it off. It took some time, but soon you both found yourselves bare before the night, the night breeze at first was chilling but the closer you brought yourself to Aki the warmer it got. It was an only a matter of time before you to began making unsuppressed sounds of pleasure as you indulge in each other for hours into the night.
>>938160In the morning you found the picnic blanket was the only thing covering yourselves from wandering eyes in the morning. Aki was still clinging to your arm smiling as she slept. You couldn’t help but smile, as by now it has become infectious to you.Aki had a terrible problem with sleeping in during the mornings so you were bound to be stuck in this rather sweet if not slightly embarrassing moment. At the very least it gave you time to think about where you all are going from here.After setting up the government, reconnecting with Aki and Yuki, and spending time with your sisters, but was there anything else you wished to do here before heading out?>Write in things you feel the party should do before leaving>Leave and head to your next destination.

Big update coming
>>938216>>938226As you expected it took hours for Aki to wake up. At first, you weren’t too concerned but as the sun raised higher and higher into the sky you began getting increasingly nervous and looked around you at all times, to ensure onlookers would not notice the scene.Thankfully you two were able to wake up on your own and slink back into the castle without anyone seemingly taking notice. You were greeted by Yuki, “Hey you two. How did it go last night?” Aki answered, “I had a wonderful time” “As did I” you added.Yuki giggled and teased, “Before or after you two were rolling around in the grass?” You turned a shade red. Yuki continues, “You two need to honestly be quieter if you are going to do such things outdoors. When Shirabu came back for bed she asked us all manner of questions about what you two were doing.” Oh god. “We had to explain to her that you two just really loved each other and that's what people do. But then she asked why you never did that with her before….” Yuki pauses, “Point is, she might ask for you to hug and roll around for a while, in the near future.” You were embarrassed beyond belief, having exposed yourself to your younger sister like that, but it could have been far worse you supposed, best let her keep her sexual innocence for as long as she can.After talking with Yuki, you and Aki make your way back to your rooms where you wash up for the rest of the day, by the time you were in the shower you decided what else you think your group should do.You had a bit more time on the island you thought, so you might as well spend it preparing for what's to come and train for the rest of the time.
>>938609After your shower you make yourself look presentable and address your friends in the living room. “Alright everyone, we should spend a bit of time training for what is to come.” “Sweet!” Victoria yells with excitement as she preemptively throws a punch at Anna, who by this time knows Victoria’s shenanigans dodges easily. “Guys I didn’t mean right here right now! Let's go outside.” Soon you all found yourselves outside doing various types of training. Most decided to focus on fighting, besides Yuki, who is far too skilled a holy mage to stop practicing. Anna and Victoria opted to roam the nearby town challenging literally everyone they saw to a fight. You are sure they will be fine, but hopefully, Shirabu won’t have to deal with the village in uproar over being beaten by two young girls. Decided to ask Nessera and Serena to acts as ambushers and attack your friends from stealth periodically, making them more aware of their surroundings; A crossbow bolt zooms by your head, including yourself. Shirabu decided to join you in training and sparred with you one on one. She seemed to be having quite a bit of fun, while you were trying desperately not to get your arm cut off like last time. Thankfully besides a few bruises, your limbs stayed intact and attached to your torso.
>>938624Every now and then you noticed Tharja walking amongst the training ground bringing people what looks live refreshments. Though it was likely hard with the number of chains she was in to prevent her from casting any spells or attempting to attack one of your friends. She didn’t complain or say much at all though and just slinked around you all like a zombie. During a break period, you asked Shirabu about her.“So, how is she coming along?” She crosses her arms as if to pout, “Alright, I guess, she doesn’t seem particularly interested in anything at all and she blindly follows my orders. I had Rozalin take a look at her for a while but it seems even her personality wasn’t able to bring back much of anything from her old self.”“She probably needs time is all then.” At the very least she is cooperating with what Shirabu asks, and however cruel this may be at least she is paying back for her crime of fanatically killing your sister's parents. You’re still a little bummed you’ll not be able to have a cognitive conversation with her, at least, for a while. Kagehana was able to tell you all the important stuff she knew, but just being able to chat would illuminate you more on the type of person she really is, and how she feels. Maybe then you could learn if she is suffering from both a broken mind and a broken heart.Later in the evening Anna and Victoria come back to the castle, supporting each other as they walked, smiling and exchanging snide comments about the day. You first here Victoria’s voice, “That ass though he had you but wham! Right in the jaw!” “Haha yeah that’ll show that jerk for thinking he can try to ‘break me’ hehe” “Now now you two,” you announce your presence, “Get inside for Yuki can take a look at you. We’ll rest up one more day before we are leaving. Victoria chides, “Where are we heading then, worrywart-leader?”You shrugged off her comment about your worrying nature, “We’ll talk with everyone in the morning about it, for now just get some rest.” All party members (minus Yuki) can a +1 increase to their primary weapon of choice>MC gains +1 STR>Yuki gains a +1 bonus to her Magic rolls>Anna and Victoria get +1s to all of their weapons
>>938654When you finally were able to make your way back to your bed you were greeted by Shirabu jumping onto you with enough force to make you tumble to the bed. “I love you Onee-chan!” She yelled as she moves her face closer for a kiss.You instinctively pulled away. “Did they tell her that too?!” you thought. They said she would want to roll around with you like you did with Aki, but not this.”Shirabu looks at you, “What's the matter Onee-chan? They told me that you do this kind of stuff with the person you love right? And I saw you do it last night too.” Her eyes cast down as she gets progressively sadder as she speaks, “Could it be that Onee-chan doesn’t love me like that….”With her tiny body clutching to you, you can feel her hands begin to tremble as they hold you. >Explain its a different kind of love, but you love her even more than that the way you are now!>Kiss her and get it over with>Write in
>>938654Taka actually gets a +2 bonus for sparring with Shirabu in her free time
Heading out for the night. Be back tomorrow night at 9pm PST
Rolled 17, 8 = 25 (2d20)>>938659>Explain its a different kind of love, but you love her even more than that the way you are now!"Shirabu,,the things I do with Aki and Yuki are the kind of things a husband does with his wife. Is something lovers do, not family. I love you as my little sister not as a lover. But... in a way I love you as if yoi were my daughter and I would be completely destroyed if something really bad happened to you. You are the reason I came back. I thought Adrian would be fine with the Thunderbird as his wife but I left you alone. And Taka missed you very much! And if you want to learn to do those kind of things with Taka, well she might be my sister but she never drank your blood right? So she technicaly isn't your sister legally. So no one would think is bad if you two become lovers. Just remember to be gentle since kitsune are way more fragile than demons. And ask her if that's what she wants."
>>939459This, she loves and trust us so a 17 should be enough.>Explain its a different kind of love, but you love her even more than that the way you are now!"Shirabu, the things I do with Aki and Yuki are the kind of things a husband does with his wife.

So no one would think is bad if you two become lovers. Just remember to be gentle since kitsune are way more fragile than demons. And ask her if that's what she wants."
>>939459>>939466“Shirabu,” you spoke softly, “The things I do with Aki and Yuki are the kind of things a husband does with his wife. It’s something lovers do, not family. I love you as my little sister, not as a lover. But... in a way I love you as if you were my own daughter and I would be completely destroyed if something really bad happened to you. You are the reason I came back. I thought Adrian would be fine with the Thunderbird as his wife but I left you alone. And Taka missed you very much!” Your mind takes a turn during your explanation, “And if you want to learn to do that kind of things with Taka, well she might be my sister but she never drank your blood right? So she technically isn't your sister legally. So no one would think is bad if you two become lovers. Just remember to be gentle since kitsune are way more fragile than demons. And ask her if that's what she wants."You were trying to explain to her the bond you two shared but it seems you went on a bit of a tangent. Shirabu looks confused at first at your words but soon she hugs you again. “That means Onee-chan loves me as me as much as the others right?!” “Y-Yeah.” more or less. Shirabu sticks to you as she giggles happily for a time before getting ready for bed. Although it seems this evening getting ready for bed meant clinging on to you the entire time. Taka comes in a short time later for a well-earned rest and upon climbing into bed she is greeted by a huge hug from Shirabu and they roll around a bit. Taka asked as they rolled around, “W-What?! Is this cause we are leaving tomorrow?” You chuckled and answer, “Probably.” Though you knew a little more. Oddly Shirabu didn’t immediately go for the kiss like you were expecting, but then again Taka’s protests are making anything besides rolling around rather difficult for her.
>>941726That night you three sisters all huddled together and you felt that you had one of the best nights of sleep in your life. Waking up you felt fully refreshed and strangely charged after that time you spent training. In the morning everyone gathered in the audience room to discuss our next plans.“So where from here?” Anna said staring at a map you picked up along the way. Now that you thought about it,“We’ve been the most places,” Looking over the map you take mental notes of all the locations you have thus far visited. There is that small island group to the south past the Mikawa River and the island to the north of the Accursed lands.” That was where the shadow temple was said to have been, along with the Night Orb. A weapon of extreme power, locked in a land of overwhelming darkness and abyss.That man likely wants that orb most of anything, but you still didn’t know about those islands to the south. Plus there were other places you could stop at if you so choose. Those are the only two locations that immediately jump out at you at the moment. "Where should we go?" You wonder.>>929008>Islands past the Mikawa>Shadow Lands>Another Location (write in)
>>941732>Mother's castle, you two need to talk.
>>941870>Mother's castle, you two need to talk.
>>941870>>941880What about? You all just came from there.
I'm heading out, so please feel free to discuss where you are going to next, and with a reason why in some cases as like the above case. Please go into detail if need be, not only for my clarity but for everyone else for argument's sake. I am busy tomorrow so I will be back on Friday night 6pm PST
>>941958>Mother's castle, you two need to talk about what Mother did to you and the other kids. Why did she kill your parents and the other kids parents when there are literally billions of orphans she could have taken and would have actually be grateful to have her as a "Mother"?>Why I do have memories of me and the others living in an orphanage, of meeting you and you hypnotising me to think that you killed my parents? Of you saying "I finally found you." before saying that?" Did that really happened or what?"
>>942168>>942227There was something in the back of your mind that kept bothering you. Your memories. Earlier you had difficulty remembering your parent's names and for some reason remembered an orphanage. You figured Lily might know more, but also you didn’t start seeing or thinking these things until you came here. In which case, there was only one person you might be able to help you with that. “Mother,” you said to yourself. She was the start of everything she would have to know why you are feeling this way. “Guys we, have to go back to Mother’s again…” “Again?!” Victoria uproared. “We were literally just there?! And if you wanted to talk to the bitch couldn’t you just think it?” She scoffs and points to her head repeatedly in an angry fashion, “Or did that gas the snake had you bake in make you lose brain cells?” Anna confronted her, “That’s enough!” she yelled. “If she wants to go there it must be for an important reason. What’s your problem?!” “My Problem…” victoria started, “My problem is all this damn running around we are doing! I would be fine with it if we were still wandering around like in the beginning. BUT, we know who the asshole here is, where that asshole lives, and what that asshole wants. Let's just go and kick his fucking ass already? Then we can go the fuck home!” Anna responds, “It isn’t that simple! What part of being here has ever been as simple as that?! Calm down, after we go back to the Castle I am sure we will continue as we have been.” Anna turns to you, “Right?!”You weakly respond, “R-Right...” It was all you could manage in this situation as Victoria was getting physically upset at the situation. Your wish to go see Mother again was admittedly no immediately pertaining to the danger, but you just have to know. “We’ll be leaving shortly. If we head out soon we should reach her castle in a day.” You said that as a final word on the situation and your friends as always referred to your judgment and did not object. Victoria turned away from the scene however and walked out of the room. Punching the door on the way out, and leaving a considerable dent in the wood. Anna reassured you with a hand on your shoulder, “I am sure she will be fine, She just needs to blow off a bit of steam.” You already figured she took care of that after beating up all of those demons but it seems her blood was always, in some way, boiling.
>>946062After deciding where you all were heading out your friends all started to pack up your things. After so many months on the road, you learned to pack incredibly lightly, much to Yuki’s dismay at not being able to bring all of the clothes she wants to. That being said, it did not take long to get everything together and before you knew it you were at the gates of the castle ready to say goodbye to the demon lands, at least for now. Hoisting up your backpack you feel a small body glomp onto you. “Goodbye, Onee-chan.” You pat your little sister's head, “Goodbye, for now, Shirabu, be sure to be a good girl while we are gone and beat those idiots’ heads in if they start something.” She smiled, “Hehe, you got it!” Taka takes a long moment to hug Shirabu before leaving saying, “I’ll miss you, but we’ll be back soon okay?” To which Shirabu was eager to reply with equal hopes and a considerably stronger hug that caused Taka to cough. Smiling at the scene you get situated and leave the castle. On the to the docks on the western part of the island, you decided to make a quick stop and check in at the new capital. Adrian asked you to stop by before you left after all. You found the location to be under immense construction, worked on by all manners of species. They seemed to segregate themselves to different projects, but still, they are working together as a whole and it's a good sign of relations. Also, nothing was on fire and people weren’t screaming at each other. With is a Plus. You quickly find where the politicians are staying, the large buildings. Plus the lightning streak in clear day also gave it away. Shortly after you saw Raiko storming out of the house, covered in long multicolored cloth that seemed to prevent her from flying. “TWELVE LAYERS?!” she yelled, “WHY THE HELL DOES IT HAVE TO BE TWELVE LAYERS OF CLOTHES?!” “Lady Raiko please!” yelled some female dragonkin that followed her as they tried to explain. “These are the traditional clothes worn by the previous ruler and their family, it is a requirement to present yourself in the same way.” Raiko responded by pulling at the clothing around her neck“Did the last guy die because he couldn’t breathe or something? Cause I can relate right now!”
>>946076Her attendants continued to chase her about when another figured stepped out of the house, dressed similarly to Raiko. Sighing he said, “I wonder how long it will take for her to actually get used to-” he stopped mid-sentence as his eyes noticed you, “Oh hey!” Adrian yelled, waving you over.“Hey, guys. You come here to stop by before heading off?” You Joke, “Yeah, figured we should make sure the place wasn’t burning down already.” “Haha, amazing it's not. Raiko has yet to accept her role, but Ryuga and I are able to convince her to go with it when she needs to.” You nodded, “that’s good.” and after that, you two talked about the last few weeks while behind you Anna and Serena seemed to be making fun of Adrian's choice of dress, Mainly because the loose fitting cloth resembled something like a bathrobe or even a dress. Yuki silenced them with a firm grip on their shoulders. Likely her fashion senses were able to tell people were making fun of traditional wear, which is unacceptable here.“Alright well, then I wish all of you the best of luck.” He says sticking out his right hand for a handshake.You take his hand, “You too.” you said with a smile, but as you did so that handshake turned into a hug as he pulled you into him. “Truly, thank you for everything, and please come back soon.” He squeezed.You return the hug, “Thanks for everything Adrian. I am sure we will see you again soon.” He pulls back from the hug and smiles cockily, “Alright, then go get them, Leader! And if I am not there hit that bastard no named guy once for me!” You respond to his enthusiasm in kind, "Haha, you got it!"Finally saying goodbye you wave as you head westward to the docks, and leaving the island behind.Roll a d20

>>946421Nice. And I am glad we skipped wearing twelve layers of clothing.
MeanwhileTower of Spite, Accursed landsDeep in the mountains of the Accursed lands sat a man in tight clothing spinning crystal balls in his hands.“Honestly, what does that idiot think she is doing losing to that little brat like that.”A rough looking goblin with a scar responds to the man's open-ended question, “Cause she stronger den yu giv her credit boss. I fought her twice nows so I would know, plus diddnt yu loose too?” A large rock flies from the man and hits the goblin directly in the faces, “Owwsss” he hisses as he clutches his head in pain. “That is odd Gurtag. I don’t remember asking you your opinions on the matter. Nor did I loose! It was a draw you remember.” A large female voice echoed the dark room in response, the voice belonging to a bird made of pure fire, “Haha, draws are defeats here Nareth. At least admit to it.”The odd man named Nareth scoffed, “Like who you lost to that old man? Such glory in defeat I say!” “Why you insolent little-”“Enough”A booming voice engrossed the large open room and it demanded attention. The voice belonged to a figure, walking in slowly holding a large staff with his face completely obstructed from view. Slowly the figure walked in to join the conversation, his staff making a clicking sound as it connected with the stone floors that seemed to cut through the chatter of the three individuals.“My lord!” “Da Boss!” “Master!” the three each yelled as the bowed in respect to the man walking into the center of their conversation. “Now then,” The figures low, deep, and masculine voice drew the attention of all to it “Now is not the time for your petty arguments, As far as I am concerned you have all failed.”The three simultaneously launched into rambled explanations for their failures, “Well they had a dragon.” “I swore I killed themz” “I blew up their prize!” were yelled until it became a jumbled mixture of letters. The figure tapped their staff on the ground producing a loud knocking sound followed by his voice, “Silence!” he yelled, “I did not come to discuss your failures, I came for a report” Nareth answered his lord hesitantly, “S-She is leaving the island it seems my lord.”“And what of Tharja?” “A-Alive it seems, though lost without you.”The cloaked man seems unresponsive to Nareth’s explanation and simply moves on to the next subject.
>>946431“And how goes the preparation for our assault on the Shadow Temple”Gurtag responds, “Forces is ready! They getting ancy though, they keeps diving deeper and deeper into the lower lands to kill.”“Let them, rampage and panic will force their handsNow the Firehawk added to Gurtag’s statement, “Without the Sun Orb we cannot cut through the darkness as you can. If you wished to bring our forces with you as intended then you will need to scour for the Orb”“Good luck Azrazzor,” Nareth jokes, “that orb gives off a particular ancient energy that only Tharja was capable of reading and finding. But even then the orb should give off some sort of energy pulse. But are troops report nothing, and even when Tharja was with us she noticed the energies disappeared from the plane.”The cloaked man puts his hand to his chin in thought.The rough goblin asks, “You think it busted?” “Impossible, it's an ancient artifact and it would take ancient magics on an incredible scale to destroy such a thing. No one studies those magics anymore and all that knowledge was lost almost 700 years ago!” Azrazzor responds, “So we should grab Tharja then, once she meets with Master again she will likely regain her sanity.” The Lord having sat in contemplation for a few minutes suddenly tapped the ground with his staff, “Of course!” He begins slowly walking out of the meeting room. “There is no longer a need for Tharja, as was there for that soft kitsune spy. I will take care of this issue personally.I must make preparations.”Before leaving he turns and addresses his servants, “Gurtag, you are to inhibit the girl, I don’t care how as long as she is not killed in the process. Nareth, research more into the shadow temple, and if you may find an alternative way to enter than test it and inform me. Azrazzor, You are to watch over the tower in my absence and aid Nareth if he needs it. “Yes my Lord.” “Yaz Boss” ‘Yes Master.”“I want results. I did not kill you all when you first failed because you are still of use to me and valuable assets. I expect results!” were his final words before vanishing out the doorway. We Now Return to the MC and I can't believe this took me so many times to get right. My proofreading skills are infamous
>>946491Anyway... let's get back to the MC.And it seems giving the Sun Orb to Baba Yaga was a good idea.
>>946396>>946421On the way to Mother’s CastleTravel went rather smoothly, Thankfully you were able to get a proper boat from the docks rather than Anna’s raft, though you oddly miss the sense of danger you had when riding it. It wasn’t long till you reached the shore and soon after that, the castle. There was more centaur activity you noticed in the plains and the Eversong Forest seemed to be bustling a lot more than usual. However, that did not concern you.Mother did. And soon you were at her front door knocking on the rather large gate. Two guards opened the gate for you, “Mistress Ravani says for you to meet her upstairs. The rest of you are to stay in the foyer.” She was expecting you, but you knew she likely would. Victoria displayed her disagreement with this stagnation with another punch on the gate. Still made out of wood, but far less flexible as there was bar none no damage. The guards escorted you up to the main room of the lord vampire and upon opening the door you found the little vampire lord sipping on wine at a table.After finishing her sip she addresses you calmly and motherly, “Darling, Mother always appreciates it when you bring yourself all the way out here just to talk with me. What is on your mind?!” You take a seat in the provided chair as the guards leave and close the door behind themselves, “I wanted to talk to you about… you and me.” It was complicated but you guess that may be the best way to put it.“Ohh? Besides our loving relationship?” “Something like that….” You sigh, “I need to know… Why did you kill my parents and the other kids’ parents when there are literally billions of orphans she could have taken and would have actually been grateful to have her as a "Mother" Why I do have memories of me and the others living in an orphanage, of meeting you and you hypnotising me to think that you killed my parents? Of you saying "I finally found you." before saying that?" Did that really happened or what?" You grasp your hands to your head as all these thoughts and the emotions with them return vividly in your mind.Mother sets down her glass as she begins to laugh, “hahaha, how interesting. Aleister was right.”“W-What?” you asked in confusionShe comes down slowly from laughter before apologizing, “Sorry Darling, I just couldn’t contain myself… I should explain.” She begins twirling her wine glass in her hand as she does, “I suppose I should tackle your questions in order, though they are all related I suppose. Orphans do exist, darling, in all worlds, but I don’t want those soft ones who crave family, I want people of action. Which is why I kill and steal.”
>>946772“There are typically three ways people deal with extreme emotional trauma like witnessing the death of family members and kidnapping.” She holds up a finger, “One, utter spite, retaliation, and contempt. Or two,” She holds up two fingers now, “Complete shutdown and eventual acceptance of circumstances. I want them to fight darling. Fight and prove themselves worthy of challenging the face of fear. That is why I kill and steal, because I want those that choose to fight. Unfortunately… some opt for the second path and need “encouragement,” which is why I threaten them. Mothers, unfortunately, have to be mean to their children, but of course, it is for their own good.She holds up a third finger, “You, my dear, are currently experiencing number 3. You find reasons. You don’t like the situation so you try to explain it however rationally or irrationally you can. ‘Well maybe if I was an orphan then this would make sense,’ ‘Well I suddenly don’t remember my parents ever existing.’ the mind is a powerful tool Darling, tricking one’s self is not as hard as you may imagine it to be.” You grew angry at her words and were becoming emotional,“Stop it!” you yelled bringing your fist down onto the table, “Do not make light of my, or any of the kids you have stolen over this time feelings.”Mother gets a rather serious look on her face, “I am not Darling, I am only explaining what you are feeling. If you are referring to the time when I laughed I should clarify that it was out of irony, as Aleister told me this exact same thing hundreds of years ago when I first arrived. “That I was searching for reasons to understand and that I would lie to myself in order to achieve self-comfort.”You yelled back at her “You’re lying!” “I am not!” This time she slammed her fist into the table. After giving you an intense look she sighs and calmly begins to explain “You remember Aleister correctly, he killed my family, my village and brought me here as his heir. I cried for days until I understood why I was there. It was because Malena died and I, princess Ravani was Aleister's heir. You remember do you not? When you first interrogated me about Malena and the doll and such. I told you she died a long time ago and laughed off your claims. I wasn’t doing it to hide something from you, I did it because I needed it.” She paused for some time, letting her last sentence hang in the air as she stared at her wine glass. After some time, she continued, “You were also there when I understood what I was doing and broke down in realizing that fact.” She half laughs, “heh, it's funny, but the more I think about it the more alike we are in this respect.” I was convinced of my own illusions and when Aleister tried to show me the light I refused to listen and did not believe a word he said.” >You’re wrong! I am definitely not my parents' daughter>You’re right>Run away crying>Cry>Questions (what?)>Write in
>>946788> Walk to "Elena" and hug and pet her, accept no protests."I only see a broken child trying to act as an adult. You are no one mother, you just pretend. And you know what? You want to be my little sister. You can argue all you want but that's the truth. You wanted a monster that did your job better than yourself and you got it. A human that got strong like a monster and thinks like one.">"Maybe I am really deluding myself, but the fact is. You got what you wanted. You know what would happen if I returned to the real world right now? I wouldn't be able to fit with humans anymore. I manipulate, I cheat, I kill like a true psychopath. So the question is, do you want that monster to see you as a little sister to protect or as a monster to kill?"
>>946944This."You know what I think when I see my friends? I imagine what kind of monster girls species they would be better as. When I see my little sisters I actually care about them... more than I do about my real one. You know what I really want besides protecting those I care about? To twist and change others to fit what I want. Just talking is not enough anymore. I want to... change their bodies to fit my sexual fantasies. That's why I turned that lying boy into a cute centauress. Yes it was to save him, but I also liked it. I liked the feeling of power. That's why the Sun Orb wasn't what I wanted. It was just... destruction. And why I fear the Shadow Orb. I... I am death, water, mother, big sister, shadows, trickery. Things all associated with the night. I don't think that if I ever got the Shadow Orb I eould ever let it go."
>>946969Good."Yuki asked how far I would go to defear that man and I don't want to know because if this continues... I will just not be human anymore. Heck I have to make an effort to think as a human lately. Even if everything goes well... I see myself as some sort of Kitsune in the future not as a human woman. And my friends... not a single one of them will stay human if I have my way. And thst fucking scares me. Wanna know why I got rid of Adrian as soon as I could? Because I was fantasing anout how to turn him into a cute monkey girl, a female Son Goku!'
>>946788>>946944>>946969>>946987You know, this is a nice twist of the "MC is the players".
>>946944>>946969>>946987You didn’t say anything and stood up from your seat, walked over to Mother and gave her a hug, “Darling it's okay, Mother understands,” she was comforting you until you reached your hand up and started patting her head. “Darling we have talked about this!” she started to protest but you ignored her. "I only see a broken child trying to act as an adult. You are no one mother, you just pretend. And you know what? You want to be my little sister. You can argue all you want but that's the truth.

So the question is, do you want that monster to see you as a little sister to protect or as a monster to kill?"“Darling we had already discussed this and we have just been over it! I have accepted what I am, and you helped with that. I being far older than you refused to be your little sister and you are going into much darker directions.”You ignored all of her protests and just kept unloading your emotions."You know what I think when I see my friends? I imagine what kind of monster girls species they would be better as. When I see my little sisters I actually care about them... more than I do about my real one.

With your train of thought you are going to drive everyone away from you, or maybe even kill those around you. I doubt you truly want that. I certainly don’t. And you are already stronger Darling! I wanted to wait for the most dramatic time to tell you but you should know by now that Humans have the potential to be far more powerful than any monster can. You are living proof. Don’t throw that away because you need soul searching and are throwing a tantrum!”You unloaded all of your emotions out onto Mother and here she was trying to counter and get you to calm down. >It’s too late, this is me now>I understand what she is trying to do, fuck I need a psychiatrist>This really pisses you off. She doesn’t understand you, and if she refuses to submit then she is better off dead. strangle her.>Pretend that you are stable>Try to become stable in earnest> Leave with your friends immediately and head to Yaga’s.

Be back tomorrow night 7pm PST

"All those lives you killed or made them suffer, all those dark magics used on me, anyone would become strong with so many sacrifices but the end result is just technically human. That unlimited potential is a lie, any monster could do the same with so much effort. This is the human monster you have created."You rip Malena clothes away with a cruel smile. "So I ask for a last time, are you my little sister, or my enemy? Well?"

I will be returning to write for the first post in approximately 30 minutes. Currently, there is a tie for the next decision and when if it remains as such I will be flipping a coin when I begin writing.

>>949750Yeah, why is so many people voting against the little sister option?
>>949764>>949750Because she also killed our parents
>>949771We had many chances to kill her for that before. We didn't.
>>949777So? That was in the past and she has a shitty excuse as to why she kills.
>>949759>"I said, do you want to be my little sister or a monster I have to kill?"This quest has been over a month with like four voters max. Can you say samefagging?
>>947124>>947165Im choosing this.>>949787Funny you can say the same for either choice.
>>949781>Not wanting to brainwash her into being our little sister.I think you are in the wrong quest.

>>949852>>949860Like you guys just got a perfect one?
>>949563Look at what you have done!Know what? Is evidently both sides are samefagging, let's have the GM roll for it because this quest NEVER had this many people.
>>949882How odd that voting has ended 14-12 and suddenly you pop up claiming samefaggotry>>949872He didnt vote twice you know.
>>949882Agreed. Is quite strange that a quest that only had like four people for almost two.months suddenly has 20+ people voting.
>>949882>This quest NEVER had this many peopleIt hurts a little bit to know you're right.
>>949892One vote has a roll, the other doesn't.And I can't honestly remember this quest ever having so many people anyway. This is why votes tend to be timed to 10 or 15 minutes around here.
>>949882Its rather evident that at>>949709 samefaggotry popped up at minute intervals. Now notice how suddenly all voting stopped, with one side clearly winning. You then proceeded to quote someone showing the other side tht lost samefagging by showing them rolling once and then showing samefaggotry commited by the losing side. You then proceeded to ask for a roll.Its pretty clear that you're the samefag from the other side, desperate that you lost.
>>949895Just roll for it.
>>949921Explain were those 14 something votes you claim aren't samefagging came from pretty please.
So to conclude>samefaggotry starts between two dudes at >>949709>one dude accidentally reveals samefaggotry and loses the vote>shows a false example of samefaggotry on the winning side>proceeds to ask a roll by OP because he knows thats the only way he can win
In fact its rather evident that the quest has been samefagged by a single person for the entirety of this thread considering that its filled with 1 post by this IDs people all agreeing to another.
>>949938>And then it turns out this quest only has two people posting besides the GM. Use an ID counter, how many ids have at least three posts? The ones that have just one that happens to be a vote is samefagging.
Rolled 1 (1d2)Christ guys, no matter which I choose I'm fucked.Just to end everything I am rolling for it. It was clear that samefagging happened on both sides either way.1 = strangle2 = little sister demands
I am absolutely certain this quest has been sabotaged by one person, now mad that he was beaten at his own game. There's no eay to save this quest.>>949971You would say that wouldn't you? You cycle through ips by samefagging over and over that you inevitably get them via turning on and off airplane mode or a list of proxies.
>>949984All that time to turn her into a little sister wasted. Do we at least get XP out of this?
Rolled 12 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>949984Your eyes roll down to the small vampire lord who is attempting to console you. Is it out of genuine compassion. Ha, that is impossible, she killed your parents, kidnapped you, and sent you off on an adventure that may have killed you. It didn’t but that adventure has changed you. And the you now, is sick and tired of this bullshit she keeps spouting at you. Is it pity she now feels for your shift in personality? Perhaps. Or maybe is it fear. She knows you are powerful and that you have had many chances to kill her up till now. So maybe she is afraid what you may do given the chance. But she has a right to fear, for as of now, you refuse to be mistreated, misunderstood, and sent on this bitch’s errands. If she isn’t going to accept what you are becoming, then she is better off dead.Your hands move with lightning quickness to the vampire's throat. “Darling what are you-?!” You don't giver her the chance to question as with strength unknown to you before you start crushing the girls throat. Her nails bite into your arms and she drags them down in attempt for the strength to leave your body. It doesn’t work. In your vice grip she begins to flail all of her body in an attempt to squirm out of the hold, coughing and choking the whole way. You gazed into her eyes that were darting about the room, searching for something while also attempt to appeal to your reason. You hear a voice in your head, “Darling cease this immediately! If you go any further you will be heading down the road of a true monster and-”“SHUT UP!” you physically scream at the girl now under you. “You deserve this you monster!” This wasn’t only for the shit she has done to you, but also your friends. She killed their parents, stole countless children away with her shitty excuse for doing it. You start to feel her throat give way to your strength as you stare into her frantic eyes, foam rising from her mouth. You were so engrossed in this sight that you however did not notice her hands had begun glowing red and hot. Roll a d20+7I am rolling for Mother

>>950156Would you shut the fuck up? You got what you fucking wsnted and the MC got a perfect roll. Thanks for ruining the quest.
>>950185You sound quite mad over this dude. And it's rather hard for me to ruin this quest when I've been here since thread one?
>>950113The arms begin to blaze with heat as it starts to run up your arms in a torrent of fire. That didn’t stop you, however, you just constricted harder and faster. The fire burned your arms and threatened to rise to your head but before that you pressed down hard, putting your entire body into as you pressed your body into her and feel her throat give way as there was a distinctive snap that rang through the room. The flames halted at the sound as did all sound in the room. Her eyes started to turn dark and her arms were sliding down yours, losing all strength to resist. Her arms fell to the floor but not before one reaches out to the corner of the room and you hear a weak noise in your head, “Darling…. please, can I have Mommy….” The doll? Why should you care? You get up from her and walk around trying to find the item to finish her off. Tearing off a piece of a cabinet with your new found strength through adrenaline you acquire a stake to pierce her heart. Out of fancy, you gaze to the corner of the room were the diorama of a little girl holding onto “Mommy’s” hand. >Take the doll for yourself>Give Malena the doll before killing her>Tear it up in front of her
>>950241>Give Malena the doll before killing herGuys please at least let me do this.
>Give Malena the doll before killing her
>>950241Give em the doll.
>>950241"I wish... I wish I could have saved you so you wouldn't have become a monster. Stupid time travel, I desperately looked for a way to save you, maybe you weren't so bad? Maybe you were lying,tricking me somehow? But no, you were both a monster in heart and soul and... this will be my future, right? Someday I will be the monster who gets killed by the hero."
>>950360"That stupid wish I made to that star, is not working is it? Because I care about Malena, the little girl who died so the monster called Mother was born. And no matter what, I couldn't... I couldn't save her."
>>950260>>950269>>950277>>950306>>950360>>950402You grab a firm hold on the doll you pick up from the diorama. It would be so easy to just toss this away or even destroy mother more by letting her watch its destruction, but a small voice that wishes her to have it in death.“Tch!” you scoff at yourself as you walk the item over and place it next to Mother’s face. You even position her head so she could look at the item in her final moments. From somewhere deep inside herself, you see water to form in her eyes. Her lips attempt to move but her the through the way it is she could not actually speak. She gazes at the doll as more and more tears pour from the vampire's eyes. You hear her weak voice once again in your mind, “Thank… you…” You kneeled down over her with the stake raised before speaking with a tinge of regret, "I wish... I wish I could have saved you so you wouldn't have become a monster. Stupid time travel. I desperately looked for a way to save you, maybe you weren't so bad? Maybe you were lying, tricking me somehow? But no, you were both a monster in heart and soul. Malena died that day and you, a monster was born." “Hehe, we all wish darling… but lately, it seems that people... wish for too much. I often wished that I could again be my human self, then I wished… to throw it all away… but it seems my wish to have someone strong enough to prevent the collapse of the mortals was too much… Ironic... that my wish to help humans is... the one to kill me...” You continue to have one last chat with her. Looking at her you can't help but see a part of your future. Dying at the hands of a hero, though your definition of hero has become rather, liberal. “This is my future isn’t it Someday I will be the monster who gets killed by the hero."“Perhaps… but if that is the case then let me wish for one last thing... “ you see her eyes close and her head touch the head of the doll. “I pray… that you find solace in the path you chose darling… for your path is above all... a lonely one.”
>>950490Her voice cuts out in your head. She sits motionless under you with the remnants of water tearing down her face. Hearing nothing after a few moments you do one last wind up of your stake and slam it deep into Mother’s heart. Blood erupts from both her chest and her mouth as she coughs it onto the floor while the chest wound sprays onto your hands and torso. Her body convulses and one final moment and her back arches to before losing all power and falling to the ground. The vampire, Malena Ravanni now laid truly lifeless on the ground in front of you.You slowly release your grip on the stake and your hands tremble. Your breathing quickens to the point of hyperventilation and your body stumbles backward from the corpse.“I...killed her,” you said in between breaths. The stench of copper permeating from your soaked and trembling hands. “I… did it…I…” you kept repeating yourself to truly make you understand the gravity of what you have just done. Just looking at your hands and smelling that distinctive smell cause a reaction in you. You felt like throwing up. You could feel the motion being forced upon you but nothing ending up coming up. Uncomfortable dry heaves at the sight drove your body to the ground. Over time your heaving stopped and your breathing begins to slow down as the adrenaline leaves your veins and you become more conscious of your surroundings. You had just killed the vampire lord of the castle in which you and your friends were in. What can you hope to do in this situation?>Go on a rampage through the castle>Clean up the mess, play it off and leave like nothing happened.>Write in
>>950517>Free the rest of the children and taje them to the harpies.
>>950517>>950540>>950517>Free the rest of the children and take them to the harpies.>Take the doll with you, to remember the little sister you couldn't save.
>>950560Okay.>Take the doll with you, to remember the little sister you couldn't save."Girls... Mother is dead, I killed her. She once was a human girl named Malena... one that I couldn't save. Let's free the kids still in the castle and take them to the harpies, okay?"
>>950540>>950560>>950583>>950584You are slow to stand and require the furniture to support yourself at first but soon the strength came back to your legs and the trembling stopped. You took a calm couple breaths and accessed the situation. With Mother dead, you figured that you were free to free the other children she kept in the cells in the dungeon so you slowly began walking for the door. Uncaring about the absolute mess that was your clothes. Opening the doors you were surprised to find that there were no guards outside her room, but you weren’t about to complain. Leaning on the stone wall of the stairwell down you eventually come to the foyer where your friends waited. This time, however, there were guards.“What?! Why are you covered in blood.” you friends and the guards yelled at you in unison. “The Mistress!” one yelled as it headed up the stairs while two other guards come up to you, pointing their weapons clearly at your person.“Leave her alone!” Taka yelled rushing at the guards. >Stop Taka and try to talk your way out of this 1d20+4 (this is difficult because you kinda did just kill their lord)>No point in talking, let’s just beat everyone up who tries to stop you
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>950681>Stop Taka and try to talk your way out of this 1d20+4 (this is difficult because you kinda did just kill their lord)"I killed Mother, whar makes you think you guys stand a chance?"
Rolled 20 + 4 (1d20 + 4)>>950681>Stop Taka and try to talk your way out of this 1d20+4 (this is difficult because you kinda did just kill their lord)
>>950729Holy fuck, we are scary. Do we get some "Mother ordered us to serve the one if her children who actually became strong enough to kill her on its own power."? Or something?
>>950724>>950729>>950741You threw yourself between Taka and the guard and halted her wit ha palm, before starting your explanation. “Everyone, Mother is dead, I killed her.” “What?!” the audience replied as the guards begin to try and bring their weapons down onto you. But before they can your stare coldly and planning into their eyes and they seem to freeze in place unable to willingly attack.Seeing their stiffness you continued while walking to join your friends, “She… was once a little girl named Malena but she became a monster who did countless evils, and for that I killed her. I killed her so then guardsmen, what makes you think any of you stand a chance should we choose to fight.” Turning about you face them dead on, “You will not hamper us and you will release the children underground into our custody. We will then leave, understand?! I do not wish to kill any more than necessary so make this easier on yourselves and stop.The guards in the room panic and talk amongst themselves, “But our mistress?! Can she really be dead… who is going to lead us now, there was no clear heir.”You half-thought about taking the position for yourself, but then again they likely would only take a vampire as a ruler of vampires, and you preferred the prospect of kitsune a bit more. “That is not my concern, you are all to either not interfere or help in the release of your captives.”
>>950981The guards in the room resign and toss the keys to the cells over to you. Seems they chose to give up and watch. The children you began freeing were heartier than the ones before but the harpies should look after them well nonetheless. You had your friends keep watch over the guards while you helped the children leave but none of them ever tried to stop you. Being the killer of their leader they either feared or respected you. Either suited you. While aiding the children Yuki and the others asked how you were, likely concerned by your near zombie-like appearance with the blood and sick feelings you were having. You waved them off, saying such lines as “It’s fine, I am just tired,” and “Let’s focus on this and talk later.” Soon you found yourself droning about, mindlessly helping the crying children at times. Loaded up you once again began your caravan to the harpies in the north. Again the guards did not hamper you and were all too happy once you left as they closed the main gate incredibly quickly. You lead the exodus looking nowhere but the harpy village in the distance. The journey was nearly two days long and you barely had time for rest. At nights Aki and Yuki would attempt to approach you, as did Taka, but you would insist that you would talk about this after you could stop worrying about the children. After what you went through, they respected your wishes. It wasn’t long until you came to the village, and were greeted by the town guard who insisted you go see the queen once more. You nodded in acknowledgement and began a firm walk to the queen’s tree.
>>950996South of the Harpy Village, Felwood ForestA small goblin rushes through the forest, hitting branches and bumping into trees as he hurries. Finally once he found his destination he trips over a branch and falls at the feet of a rough looking goblin with a scar on his chest.“Oi Gurtag, we followed them much likes u asks. They brining the humans into da village.” Gurtag grins, “I is right for followin’ ems. Da Boss says we just hamperz the girl, but now we have all these kids Da Boss is sure to want to look at.” he laughs in content for his action before adressing the large group of goblins around him, “Is a damn good thing I stopped ya allz from raiding early! Now look at what we can get, kids, jewels and what Da Boss wants, ain’t I smart?”Silence hangs in the air of the makeshift goblin camp.“I says, AIN’T I SMART?!” “Y-Yes sirs, you be da smartest!” groveled the tripped goblin and the rest of the goblins followed suit offering praises for the goblins intellect. Gurtag gracefully accepts their praises,“Hehe, I knows right?” He pauses, and his grin widens, “But now… now we can gets to da fun part.” Gurtag readies a crossbow into his hands. “Now boyz, it be raiding time!” “The camp uproard in yells as the goblins hoisted their spears and crossbows into the air to a resounding , “WAAAAAAAGGGHHHH” that echoed between the trees.To be continuedLast post for the night, and I, unfortunately, have quite a bit of holiday things to do tomorrow and Monday so I won’t be back until Tuesday. Closer to Tuesday I will announce what time I will be beginning.
By the way, I am curious how people like these villain asides I started doing. I thought it would be a fun way to see the inner workings of the enemy and finally get glimpses of the people hunting you. Also, they are little breaks from the MC that personally for me keeps things fresh.
>>951031Is okay. The doll we took from Mother has Malena spirit on it.
Looks like posting will begin tonight at 9pm PST
