Burning.That's the only way to describe it.Your mind is burning.The world seems blurry, like you were watching it from a moving train without actually moving:Everything has a vivid, frenzied feel to it...Your environment seems to be vibrating.You're wrapped in a blanket sitting at the foot of Emi's bed, staring off into space as this weird dream power echoes through your mind..."Here you go, Rin." Emi says as she walks back into the room with two cans of coffee.You don't say anything, instead just nodding at her.She flops down on the floor next to you and puts her hand to your head. "Well, you don't have a fever."Leaning in, she looks you in your eyes. "Bad dream? Can you talk?"Um... maybe? Your thoughts... They're not hazy like they've been in the past... They're more disturbed... As if something was being 'added'.Like the still surface of a pond being broken by the rain.Blinking, you look up at your legless friend.>Sanity: 2 Ihadmyevilfloaty-booktrytoexplainaspellinadreamIhadwhichmaybewasn'tadreamandnowI'mhearingcolors.

SAVE Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao's class has?From what we've seen so far, it doesn't look like snoozu is yandere for hisao (unless everyone is yandere for hisao automatically, that might be the case). This could be good,. She could be valuable.
[x] Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao's class has?Because I don't want to lose San, or tell Emi we now have the advantage of hearing colors.
>>20379092really quick. when did you plan start a new route?
>Hey Emi, why don't I get a date?Let's break the forth wall.
[x] Ihadmyevilfloaty-booktrytoexplainaspellinadreamIhadwhichmaybewasn'tadreamandnowI'mhearingcolors.Fuck yeah i finally caught it live.
IT BEGINS![x] Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao's class has?I don't think it's quite a good idea to possibly clue Emi in on our intentions, if she understands the fourth-wall-breaking, which after the "Lilly is a god" BAD NED I worry might happen. Might as well go for more allies.
 Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao's class has?
>>20378995>[X] Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao's class has?Considering what happened at the end of last thread, I think we may have killed Suzu.
[x] Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao's class has?
>>20379117New route starts when this one ends.I only have endpoints and a few long-term jokes conceptualized. Which we end up at and how is your call.
>>20378995>[x] The gibberish answer.The legless one has spent all my patience. She has given us nothing useful all route. She left us to die to Hanako. Despite being versed in the ways of the magicks, the other girls' villainy neither catches her eye or has any consequence or her. We have to constantly hide the truth from her. Thumbtacks in your shoe are better friends than this. Baffle her with mumbling and kick her to the curb for the rest of the adventure. Lilly deserves Hisao more than this loser.
>>20379239Couple questions if you have the time, Akira;#1 Tea set unlocks Lilly True route. Will we have multiple chances to find it or if we miss it are we SOL?#2 I think you mentioned a Misha route if we get the Shizune Good End. Is there going to be a possible Kenji route?Also, I hope the Misha route has us trying to kill Hisao to have Shichan all to our own and dealing with the other girls trying to defend him.In closing, the Rin route has been amazing so far and I am especially enjoying how mind blowing the Bad Ends have been.
>>20379157Shit. Suzu dying is not an option.
"Do you know which dorm that sleepy girl from Hisao has?" You blurt out, giving voice to your curiosity."Huh? The narcoleptic one?"You shrug. That'd explain some stuff."Yeah, I know from Miki." She scribbles the room number down on your sleeve.With that, she ruffles your hair. "You're feeling ok, then?""I feel like my head is full of insect-thingies with color. Might wanna talk it over with her since she also has a colorful head."Emi scrunches her mouth. "Ok, then... Just try to avoid getting into a fight with her or anything?"You shrug as Emi ties her hair up and heads to the door."I'll come right back here after I'm done running with Hisao this morning. Think you can manage to survive without me for just a bit?">Sanity: 2 (Shrug) "Ara ara." "WA~HA~HA."
>>20379322She seemed pretty freaked out when we 'ate' the dream world and she was still in there when it happend.And all this talk about 'adding' Akira just said?We Suzu now.
>>20379300Kinda wish we coulda picked the challenge Emi bad end but whatevs.Akira runs this CYOA like a DM. Pretty sure we are getting almost enough hints and extra chances that I'm not worried about the tea set. Hell, I almost suspect the tea set only came out because we freaked about it so Akira is playing with us rather than at us.That said, I HOPE the tea set was spurred by us and not the other way around. If Akira knows on advance what we are making memes it would be terrifying.
>>20379339>[X] "Ara ara."
>>20379339[x] ara ara
>>20379339>[x] WA HA HASurprise what a tweest! We are now Misha!
Save for good measure, i guess[x] "Ara ara."
>>20379339SAVE![X] (Shrug)Why do I have a feeling this route is never going to end?
>>20379339Keep it with the colors.[x] "WA~HA~HA."
>>20379339[x] ara araI don't even care if we lose sanity this is worth it.
"My, my..." You mutter in response.Horrific thoughts of unholy blondeness cascade through your mind...With some effort, you battle back the craving for tea.Emi raises an eyebrow and looks as if she wants to say something before thinking the better of it and shutting her mouth.After a moment, she replies. "Ok... We'll just skip today, so you rest up."She tosses you a bright smile with strangely hollow eyes. "After all, I'll need your help getting Hisao!"...Ehe. Ehehe.You say nothing, however much your thoughts respond to this...With that, Emi closes the door and heads out, leaving you alone with your thoughts again...>Sanity: 2 Go to your own room and rest in your Hisao-shrine. Go see Suzu and see if she remembers the dream, too. Go for a walk outside.
>Ara arathe only way to beat the sue is to become the sue
>>20379460>[X] Go see Suzu and see if she remembers the dream, too.
>>20379460I fucking knew it....Save[X] Go see Suzu and see if she remembers the dream, too.Time for plot and maybe improve our gimpy magic.

>>20379460[x] Go see Suzu and see if she remembers the dream, too.Let's just hope Lilly hasn't already beaten us to the punch and killed Suzu, if we didn't kill her already.
>>20379460>[x] Go for a walk outside.Nothing bad has ever happened to us walking the school alone. It should do her some good.
>>20379460Oh fuck you, bitch. It's fucking on now Emi.[x] Go see Suzu
>>20379601SHOULDA LET HANAKO KILL HER
Yeah... It's best to get some clarification on that dream-thingie...Pushing yourself off the floor, you head through the door and into the hallway.The female dorms are rowdy as ever in the morning. In the common room, a group of Akira's students are happily playing hackie-sack with a live grenade.You make a mental note to see if you can join later and head over to Suzu's room.Unceremoniously, you begin kicking the door.You're not actually sure how many times you're supposed to knock... 'Until they answer' would be the logical solution, but you've been chastized in the past for doing that.Still, it's just the only answer you can come up with so you keep kicking for a few minutes...!!!Finally, the door is crudely jerked open.Leaning heavily against the door frame is that blue-haired girl from last night... Though now bearing the trappings of reality.With massive bags beneath her eyes and hair shooting out at random angles, Suzu greets you wearing only boxers and an oversized hoodie that doesn't look like it's ever been washed."You look like shit.""It's a sanity effect."Blinking, you narrow your field of vision and focus in on her... "No, you really do look like shit.""Fuck you."Yawning loudly, Suzu just turns and walks back into the darkened interior.With a shrug, you follow her inside.
>>20379622and then run to Hisao screaming I TRIED TO STOP HER HISAO SO MUCH BLOOD
>>20379635Entering, you find Suzu's room to be rather untidy - a criss-cross of blankets and assorted electronics, many of which are from companies that don't even exist anymore."Sit wherever." She tells you flatly before flopping into one of several improvised mattresses constructed from pillows and beanbag chairs.You have a seat on something squishy and look over to her as she guzzles stale coffee from a sippy-cup."Did I catch you in the middle of something?""Sleeping in a different dream world than where we met last time." She stretches her back, cracking several vertebrae."Did this one also involve evil gods and crazy cults?""Not sure, I think so. I guess that's what you want to talk about?">Sanity: 2 Why did you enter my dream? Why was I having that dream? What was that evil spell that blew up our dream-world?

 What was that evil spell that blew up our dream-world?Not sure why, but I always have this urge to pick the longest item when presented with a multiple choice question.
[x] What was that evil spell that blew up our dream-world?
You shrug. You don't really feel like talking, but moreso like listening, so long as not-dream person is talking about something interesting for you to listen to..."Yes." You decide on. "If we saw the same dream... What was that evil spell that blew us up, then?"She yawns before pulling a tablet over to her and starting to websurf. "I told you, didn't I? It's a Magickal Pool spell - harnesses some degree of energy from the environment and feeds it to you through your natural alignment."Her eyelids flutter a bit. "Ugh... I hate being like this... Why can't I be all the way awake or totally asleep?"You prepare to kick her or something if she drifts off while you contemplate where to go with this...>Sanity: 2 So why does it hurt my head?

some other girl can just wander into our dreams, and you arent curious about that? in the worst case she has a dangerous power to wander into our mind. in perhaps better cases we share a bond of sorts and may have a more reliable ally than emi.we can find out what our power does by trial and error if nessecary.[x] why were you in our dream?
[x] And why were you in my dream?We already know the answer to the other questions.At great cost to sanity, we should be able to maybe last half a minute or so against Lilly.
>>20380057>in the worst case she has a dangerous power to wander into our mindThis is Rin we're talking about. If anything, she's the one in danger.

"So what can I do with this pool-thingie?" You ask, letting your eyes wander over the shadows."Depends on what alignment you are."You glance down at yourself. "I'm upright.""You... Don't know your magickal alignment? Really? Who taught you this stuff?"Um...

>>20380138[Meanwhile]The Yamaku athletic field's remnants have now been converted into an improvised obstacle course. Much to Emi's approval, it's enough to hold morning jogs on.A pair is currently walking the track in the morning sun, each a bit sweaty."Ehe." Emi watches Hisao with a broad smile as he walks at her side, cooling off."You've come a ways... You seemed faster than normal today."He smiles at her, only marginally shifting his body. "Had to - you set the pace."She shuffles her legblades a bit, grinning impishly. "Can't have you thinking I was going soft.""Why not? Some softness is appreciated every now and again..." For the briefest of instants, his gaze flickers down to Emi's ches- "NO! DAMMIT RIN! GET OUT OF MY MIND!"A smirk forms on Emi's scrunched mouth before she perks up. "Speaking of which, me and Rin have this little post-track ritual we're doing later. Can you make it?""Hm... I can probably think of worse fates."
>>20380156Emi beams at his acceptance for a moment-!!!Seemingly materializing from nowhere, a pair of arms lightly wrap around Hisao's torso from behind."Who?!" Hisao answers his own question from sensation alone. "Hi, Shizune."With a smile, Shizune presses her ample chest into his back."Um... Hu~uh?" Hisao emotes."WAHAHA~!" A lilting voice blasts through the air. "Goo~ood morning, you two!"The air becomes tense as Emi acknowledges StuCo's presence on the remains of the athletic course."Um... Shizun-" Hisao shakes his head, realizing she can't hear him before turning to Misha. "Could you tell her I'm all sweaty?""WAHA, she knows, Hicchan!"Emi gnashes her teeth as Shizune shoots a mischievous grin over at her, rubbing her chest against his back a bit as if to accentuate Emi's lack thereof.Misha's smile melts away as soon as Shizune's gaze is off her.After a tense handful of seconds, she finally lets go."Hurry it up!" Misha calls. "We've got a lot to take care of today."Emi pouts before sighing. "Yeah, and take care of it quickly!" A mischievous flicker in her eyes. "Rin'll be sad if we have to wait~!""Yeah, I'll be there!" He answers before suddenly coming under the pressuring gaze of a very inquisitive deafmute.Emi happily skips off.
>>20380138>>20380156>>20380198The one good part about not having killed any of the other girls yet: StuCo and Hanako are available to cock-block Emi while we learn more about magick.
Normally, I don't mind quest threads, but I fail to see how this one is in any way /tg/. I'm not up for "move quests to a separate board", but I would like to see less of "waifu quest" and such like this. There needs to be more /tg/ content than this.Sage for the intended purpose of sage - I add nothing to this discussion, and realise it. I am merely voicing my feelings on this particular thread. You're not as bad as MAHOU SWAG NEVERENDING WAIFU, but that's just because the butler thing has been going on for far, far too long.
>>20380328Interactive storytelling is always /tg/
>>20380328This was originally running on /a/ iirc, however the mods/moot have a strict "all CYOA/Quest threads go to /tg/" policy so we're stuck with them.Polite sage for off topic discussion

"Ok... So if the magick you're envisioning was green, you're a Xel'lotath alignment."Flipping her tablet around, she shows you the triangular pattern on Eldritchpedia"That's the one associated with knowledge and perception. Basically a way of ethereally opening yourself up to the world around you."Hm... Given how useful that is for painting, it does kinda make sense that it'd be you...Painting...You think back to your portraits of Hisao and smirk beneath your breath."Still, too much knowledge can be a bad thing for your sanity, so you might wanna try and flip it off if it starts getting to you.""How do I do that?"She shrugs. "No idea. I never studied magic. I just have a dreaming-buddy who loves to talk about this shit."Hm... Next time you might want to bring her some coffee.Shaking her head a little, she continues. "I'm the same alignment. I guess that's how we synchronized our dreams."Finished with that, she yawns. "So there you go, you can perceive shit and it'll drive you nuts. Anything else?">Sanity: 2 Stay here and grill her a little more on this topic. Go back to your room and 'perceive' Hisao for a while.

[x] Stay here and grill her a little more on this topic.Who needs Hisao when we got Suzu?
>>20380367Been there, done that - I don't want to spam up /q/, and I was there on day one discussing this issue. No need to get aggressive, I was and am remaining brief and polite. This is the first installment of "katawa yandere" I've seen, and I felt that one post (with polite sage) stating that I don't think this belongs on /tg/ wouldn't hurt anyone. If I've actually upset you, my apologies for that.
More information seems in order. "So how do I use this in practice?"Suzu doesn't answer, slumping down into her chair..."Hey." You kick her shin, bringing her back up with a start. "What can I do with this thing?"She tosses you a dirty look but seemingly lacks the vigor to do much more than that. "Know what spell your enemies' casting before it's cast, see where an enemy's targeting, read movements, and the like - it's best against enemies who need a lot of preparation, like mages. ""Can I power it up and perceive more?"Suzu blinks. "You... Can do enhanced magic?""Pentagrams. Not sure how enhanced that is.""That's mid-level." She answers. "Highest level is seven... Well, there was this one Scottish clan that figured out how to do nine-point ones, but they were all slaughtered six years ago by... something.""So... Can I Pargon this thing?""Sure, but it'll take more out of you to maintain."With a swishing through the air, she tries to shoe you away. "Tired now. Come back later. And bring coffee if you do." She sighs. "That.. used to be Miki's j..."She falls into a slumber slouched over her body pillows.With a shrug, you exit the room.>Sanity: 2 Try to catch Emi outside Go wait in Emi's room Go wait in your room.

>>20380553It's all good, and to be totally honest, I think you were being perfectly polite. This has been going on for a while (there was a whole other route before this one, we moved here from /a/ in the middle of that one), and I'm not speaking for everyone, but I think the general consensus between we who frequent katawa yandere is that we got kicked out of /a/ because we were basically told quest threads are always /tg/, and if we can't be here, then where else? Anyway, thanks for being awesome.
[x] Try to catch Emi outside
>>20380553Not to worry.The thread is less waifu-y than Mahou Shonen or MGQ or Bromont stuff. We're mostly dealing with caricatured Eternal Darkness cthuloid magicks and ultra violence here. hell, the romance is practically just there to give us a McGuffin to aim for and a failure condition that isn't death. All of the last game was pretty much plotting brutal murder.We got room for detractors, not to worry. Detract all you like especially if you are this polite. We're on 4chan so we should have a thick skin
>>20380605fair enough. I can see why you get hated on. I'm not trying to hate, I just... don't feel you belong. I hope you see the difference. It's like going into your FLGS and finding a new shelf devoted to anime statues. They're small models, they're expensive, but they're not really FLGS material. I wouldn't flip my shit, upturn a table, shit on the floor and scream "WHY, FLGS OWNER? WHAT IS SHIT ANIMU SHIT IN MY WARHAMS SHOP?", but I would be puzzled and ask politely what it was there for. I'm gonna stop posting in this thread now. Any further continuation that looks like it's me is likely a troll trying to rouse hatred, given that I've accidentally caused a little rustling already. I forget what it means, but enjoy your yandere.

Wandering out into a hall, you decide to try and intercept Emi on her way back.As if sleepwalking, you head out of the doors.Entering the larger world......The sun feels especially bright...The ground especially hard...It's noisy.The female dormitories behind you host seventeen girls having breakfast at various parts of the building.One of them has French toast.Yummy.The sidewalk around you has a winding pathway that you can clearly see even though it's outside your field of view.Have you moved yet?You try.Why won't those fucking birds SHUT UP?Oh...

Emi's voice. And her worried face.You can clearly tell she's worried this time. Usually you just have to guess."Rin... What... What are you?"

"Rin?! Why are you outside?! Didn't I tell you to rest?""Hm? Oh yes. Rin is outside." You confirm, glancing down and your feet to double-check. "I wanted muchly to get some rest but Suzu took it all. Wasn't that thoughtless of her?"Emi drags you though the door. "Dammit Rin." She gives you a worried smile. "You seem slightly more weird than usual."Weird?Biting your lips, you look at the floor.Really? Are you so weird?You become dimly aware of Emi lowering you into her bed and pulling a cover over you.Wierd?It's true that you see visions of insane rituals and dark temples using a magickal floating book than only you can see, but so what?There's unweird things about you.You go to school. You have a hobby. You have a boyfriend.Oh. Right. Not that last one. Not yet....Balling up, you start sobbing at this thought."Rin?!"

>>20381168>[x] ShrugWe can barely manage a day of walking around and talking without naps. As much as I am loathe to accept it from the legless false friend, we do need sustenance.
>>20381168>[x] Don't go.
>>20381168>"...Omigosh! So that's where the tea set was!"
>"...Omigosh! So that's where the tea set was!"
[x] Shrug >swaggering pippimI think that sums it up nicely captcha
Keep teasing that tea set and I'll keep posting reaction images Akira
>"...Omigosh! So that's where the tea set was!"0/10
>>20381168"Wait." You pipe up. "Don't go. I prefer it if you're here right now."Actually, you'd truely like it if Hisao were here... But you'd rather not make him feel concerned.Emi smiles down at you and strokes your hair."Ok! Yeah. You're right. We should hold off since we'll be eating with Hisao, soon."Contented, she flops down next to you and cuddles against you.As if reminded by her own words, she lunges into a detailed account of his workout plans."Anyways, Hisao's actually made a lot of progress on his running!" She reports to you.Truthfully, you really don't understand running... But you like hearing about Hisao...And Emi's treating you so nicely...It's a pleasant feeling...A warming one.>Sanity: +2
>>20381340>Sanity: +2>That picture>Friendship with Emi +WOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>20381365We still have to kill her.
>>20381379I would like to cite Hanako from Lilly's route.We have magicks, a way to break her to our will might pop up.
>>20381340Good, milk her for sanity before we disembowel her with her own leg blades.Oh who am I kidding? We can barely disembowel dinner
>>20381340Does anyone else realize that we are simply using Emi to keep a grasp on our sanity long enough to murder her so we can have Hisao all to ourselves?We're a sanity leech.
>>20381340[Meanwhile]Hisao, Shizune, and Misha and busying themselves with monotonous student council paperwork, but seem to be doing a decent job of keeping each other entertained.Hisao and Misha both burst out laughing seemingly out of the blue as Shizune finishes signing something humorous.After a moment, she tents her fingers before her expression sharpens ever so slightly.[So why is it that you like running with Emi so much?]Hisao purses his lips in thought for a minute...!!!Before suddenly his phone-alarm breaks him out of it.Shizune, while not having been able to hear it, gets the idea when Hisao checks it to turn it off.[I'll tell you tomorrow, ok?][You'll tell me tonight.] She seemingly commands.Hisao widens his eyes a bit. "Pardon?"He forgets that he needs to sign it, but thankfully, Misha didn't.[We've still got work to do and I doubt Misha and I can finish it all by ourselves.] She explains... Or perhaps dismisses.He smirks.[Ok then, see you in a couple hours.]With that, he leaves the two of them and heads out.
>>20381415....time for DIE
>>20381415It's like they're trying to give him another heart attack.Wait...
>>20381408Why shouldn't we? It isn't like she is good for anything else besides sanity and killing
Having tidied yourselves up you and Emi head out of the dorms together with Emi carrying a picnic basket large enough to transport bodies."You really can stay back if you want." She tells you. "I'm sure Hisao'll understand."Hopefully absent too much vehemence, you shake your head."I want to come."After all... You've been thinking about Hisao so very much today...No matter how bright the world about you seems to be..."Hey, you two!"All your perceptions stop dead and redirect on the source of that voice."Heya, Hisao!" Emi chirps back happily.You can only nod, feeling completely overwhelmed.>Sanity: +1"Hisao." You manage a deadpan greeting.Giggling a bit, Emi lithely skips over and hugs his arm....No.This is not ok.You maintain your collected facade, however, and pull yourself up alongside him."So... Where did you two intend to eat?" He asks."Huh?" You and Emi emote in unison."Um... You didn't have a spot in mind?"Not really. You two usually just pull up wherever it's quiet.>Sanity: 4 "The park. In town." Ignore question. Continue Hisao-gazing. "There's this place I know in the forest."
 "The park. In town."
>>20381571>[x] "There's this place I know in the forest."Town is StuCo territory
>>20381571>[X] "There's this place I know in the forest."Home territory for us.
[x] "There's this place I know in the forest."
SAVE "There's this place I know in the forest."This is our spot, the park is emi's spot. It may or may not work that way here, but if there's a chance it'll result in hisao gravitating more towards us than emi, I'll take it.
[X] "There's this place I know in the forest."
>>20381571[x] "There's this place I know in the forest."Remember your routes.
>>20381571[x] "There's this place I know in the forest."
"The forest." You answer."Huh?" Emi asks, turning to face you."There is a place I know of.""What place?""The forest."Emi scrunches her mouth and Hisao tilts his head slightly."There is a place I know of." You elaborate. "In the forest."Emi finally gets what you're saying. "Oh! Yeah! That's a great idea, Rin."Hisao apparently takes you at your word and dutifully falls in behind Emi as you lead the group.The world floods around you as you walk together...You've been this way a dozen times...But now it seems different.It feels... Odd.You shake it off and enjoy Hisao's presence.He's not saying much, but his being there is enough...After a bit of a trek, you arrive at your dandelion field.
>>20381827"But now it seems different.It feels... Odd."oh fuck we are walking in to a trap. But hisao's with us. This is interesting.
>>20381827Without missing a beat, Emi and Hisao break out the picnic blanket and set up.You walk around in circles and observe the dandelions for a while.This is your place... Your special spot.Gathering in the world from here doesn't hurt as much...Only the most evil of intruders could hurt you here...And pacing around has let you hang back and watch Emi and Hisao taking their positions.Smiling, you make out Hisao taking a seat and dash over to flop down alongside him.He jumps a bit while Emi prepares to pull a gun on you before realizing it was just you and hiding it.Hisao calms and actually chuckles a bit, raising an eyebrow at you as you fix your seating position.You like sitting next to him.Ehehe.And of course... You needed to get the best spot before Emi.Ehe. Ehehehe.>Sanity: 4 So have you kept up drawing? (Let him talk.) So do you like it here?
>>20381873We can't really fall into traps now that we have our Madjicqkal Pool
>>20381910 So do you like it here?
>>20381910>[x] So do you like it here?Did we please?
>>20381910[x] So do you like it here?Time to see where we stand.
 So have you kept up drawing?SAVE
>>20381910[x] So have you kept up drawing?Do I ever cross your mind… anytime? I miss you…
>>20381910>[x] So have you kept up drawing?
 So do you like it here?
>>20381910[x] So do you like it here?
"So do you like it here?" You ask, looking at his face as you mechanically grab what you assume to be food from Emi.He doesn't answer you right away... Instead taking his time to gaze around on your field of flowers.His expression right now...It's... like... He's calm.Not despondent... It's like he's genuinely at rest."Yeah." He breaks you from your reverie. "I really do." His smile is, in truth, rather small... But it's so genuine...Burning the image into your mind, you give a smirk of your own. "I'm glad.""Rin's pretty good at finding these little places, actually." Emi says, laughing.He looks around. "There weren't any little groves like this back where I used to live."Emi devours a riceball before frowning."This isn't really a 'grove' Hisao.""Ehehe. My mistake. Told you I'm new at this."This isn't, no... But there is one nearby...>Sanity: 4 "No. But there is one nearby I can show you." (Say nothing)
>>20382128[X] "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."
>>20382128[x] "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."save
>>20382128 "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."We're kind of like the school's pathfinder, but we lack devilfish and railguns and class levels
[x] "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."This is more than likely going to be the death of us, but fuck it.
>>20382128>[x] "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."BONDING TIME
>>20382128Save>[x] (Say nothing)The accompanying picture… it told me to. Might be too early to show them.
[x] "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."
 "No. But there is one nearby I can show you."I fully expect this to end in a bad end just because.
"This isn't a grove, no." You answer, finishing your bread. "There is, however, one nearby which I can show you.""Really?" Emi and Hisao say in unison.Oh, that's right... You've never showed Emi, either."Yup. I'll show you after we're done, here."Taking your time, you finish eating together, chatting about nothing in particular.Well, Emi and Hisao chat. You just savor the sight of their faces.This is nice...And Hisao... He seems so much more handsome with your perceptions enhanced.You... Need to spend more time with him...A lot more...Ehehe. Ehehehe. Ehe.After a bit, every one of you finishes, ritualistically declaring the conclusion of your meal with the obligatory "AAAaaah!" noise.Hisao flops back and you snuggle up against him a bit.It's not too much... You certainly wouldn't want to freak out Emi. But the proximity's enough......No... Not enough.It'll do for the moment...But it's not enough.
>>20382267It's never enough.
>>20382267Posting because it's getting a bit ded in here.
Finally, after lazing about for a bit, you straighten."Come on, then." You tell both Emi and Hisao. "We should see it before it gets dark.""Okie dokie!" Emi says, catapulting upwards in a manner that might suggest demonic possession in anyone else.Hisao straightens at a much more relaxed pace.The two of them take a moment to pack out."Lead the way."You lead the two of them through a winding pathway that doubles back onto the school from a different angle.Hisao's right behind you... So you're eager to please him.Eventually, you pull ahead and walk through the bushes into a small clearing flanked by trees.???It feels... Wrong.So terribly wrong.You're perceiving it... But it doesn't feel like it should.It feels like a perception of elsewhere.No... Not elsewhere. It's this grove.You're here.But...?
>>20382412You notice a mass pressed against the ground.Perhaps Emi is calling your name, perhaps not. You can't really tell with this thing before you.It's captivating...You approach this shape on the ground...Your sandals start to produce packing sounds as the earth becomes damp.It takes form.!!!It's... you.Your body.Your dead body. Staring blankly up into the sky.>Sanity: -1Your pulse has already more than doubled and it's climbing higher still.This is... Not an illusion.This is real.But. What? You're here. How?This is you. Dead. Literally shredded apart as if by a storm of needles."Aaahhh..." You feel sick. You start to feel a coldness running along your spine similar to what this you must have felt.>Sanity: -1"AaaaaaAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!" You shriek, falling back, resisting the urge to vomit.There's a force on you now, but you ignore it.Perception. You've perceived something real. But something from elsewhere.Perceived... Your death?From... where? What?You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead. You're dead."RIN!!!"Finally, your thoughts stop as if that single voice had shattered the world itself.You find your staring up into the eyes of a very worried Hisao beneath a wavering sky.
>>20382428>Hisao is worried about usIT'S ALL WORTH IT, GUYS
>>20382428Well, shit. That could have gone better.
>>20382428ABORTABORTABORTABORTABORTABORTABORTABORTTHIS WAS NOT PART OF THE DEAL AKIRA, NOT PART OF THE DEAL
>>20382428>Literally shredded apart as if by a storm of needles.Dude, we got a glimpse into a past route.
>>20382428Oh god what.
>>20382428Let's let Emi take on Lily, then, shall we?Hey, it worked well in the other route.
>>20382459>Rin died by the needler in Lillys route.....I.......Huh.Well shit.
>as if by a storm of needles i.e. Lilly's third canewelp
>>20382472THIS NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF WE HAD SPARRED HER ALL THAT TIME AGOBUT NO, WE HAD TO MURDER HER
>>20382488Wait, we're getting shit for stuff we did in the last route?WHAT'S NEXT AKIRA? WE START GETTING FUCKED UP BY FUTURE?!
>>20382488I was young and impulsive!
>>20382428When the world comes back into focus...You're in the infirmary with Emi dosing at your bedside.Hisao... Is not here.You can tell because his scent is missing.Too bad... That... would have been a good thing to wake up to.Sighing, you flop down into the covers...The ending was a bit... Unexpected...But it was still a decent picnic.And now you know that it isn't just this world you're perceiving...Also..."Ehehe."You breathlessly giggle so as not to wake Emi.That expression of his..."Ehehehe."Now you 'know' Hisao cares about you.
>>20382518Nice to know Emi still loves us. We might not have to eliminate her after all.
[Meanwhile][She'll be fine.] Shizune signs over to Hisao, breaking him from his lamentation at an edge of the Student Council room.It's darker now and Misha is curiously absent.[If nothing else, we know your training with Emi paid off since you probably couldn't have run with Rin beforehand.]Hisao snorts before casting his head down and looking back over to Shizune after a moment.[You always know what to say, don't you?]She crosses her arms and gives him an angry expression. ['Say'?]"O-Oh! Um." He remembers to sign it. [No. I meant-]She stops his hands with hers and smirks.[I'm teasing you. It's fine.]
>>20382561KILL THAT WHORE
>>20382561I don't know whether to be happy that hisao may have ran carrying us to the hospital, or "diediediefuckingdie" about shizune
>>20382561[Actually... I think that's a decent segue into what we were talking about earlier.] She asks. [So why is it that you like running with Emi so much?]He sighs. [It feels like I'm fighting myself.]The deaf girl tilts her head, not needing to sign out her curiosity.[I shouldn't be able to do that kind of thing. But I'm doing it.][To 'fight yourself'?]Hisao pauses for a minute, then finally hangs his head and bares it. [I hate being disabled.]Shizune's normally sharp expression becomes soft. ...After they stare at each other for a moment, she signs back. [I feel exactly the same way.]She breathes a small sigh. [I hate being the way I am. In so many ways.]Hisao moves to sign something back before thinking the better of it.This isn't a situation for words.Instead, he just pats her head.Resonating with each other's feelings, they share a moment together....After a bit, Shizune flushes a little and smiles.[Hey, close your eyes for minute.]"Huh?" Hisao says aloud before signing. [Why?][It's a surprise.]With some hesitation, Hisao complies, leaning back into his chair. Smiling mischievously, Shizune approaches him, playing with a silken chord...[Part 22 End]
