>>24655141surprise her. Just tickle her lightly and whisper into her ear. "Right behind you."Also FUCK YEAH MSQ!
>>24655192Seconded. Maybe lightly trace a finger up her spine.
>>24655192Thinking that since one twin already got pranked by you tonight, and that the other should just as well get it, you decide to sneak up behind her and surprise her.Walking quietly behind the science witch as she looks around your lab, you run a finger up her spine."EEEK!" she turns around in surprise and finds nothing there.Puzzled, she tries running her hand through the space where you were just moments ago.You take this opportunity to blow into her ear."GYAAAAA!" She screams as she covers her ear."Hayate... I know it's you!" she says with a pout."Show yourself already"[ ]continue tickling[ ]Okay[ ]I can't
>>24655380>[ ]I can't"My invisibility potion hasn't worn off yet, and I'm making sure that the timer on it is working right."

>>24655423Covers it well enough.
>>24655380Seconding this >>24655423with an invisible hug from behind.
"I can't" You tell her with a hug from behind."The invisibility potion I'm testing hasnt worn off yet, and I'm timing it's duration... and to be honest I have no idea how to make it stop if I need to.""Eh?" She asks as she pats your invisible arm "don't tell me you're stuck like that?""I don't think so..." you chuckle, "at-least, I hope not.""So... Show me this mysterious green slime you were talking about?""It's right there on the table." you answer as you lead her to your sample.She takes out her Device, the pen she keeps in her pocket and dips the tip into the green solution.**ROLLEM**Taking the average of the first 31-33 a little more info34-66 a lot more info67-100 all of the info
Rolled 62>>24655558QUICK, ROLL BEFORE LOOKOUT GETS HERE.
Rolled 45>>24655558Dammit, you know what happened last time!
Decent rolls. I'm still guessing that it's a flavored blood substitute for vampires.
>>24655571>>24655578>>2465559049, so a lot more info.I suppose it's decent.
After a few seconds of playing with Ursula's hair, her Device Victor tells you the results of his analysis."Substance contains Hemoglobin derived from human blood, traces of vitamin D and calcium also found. A minute ammount of what appears to be some kind of neurotoxin is also in it.""So it's some kind of blood sample?" Ursula asks"Negative. Though it contains hemoglobin, this mixture is too far removed from blood to be considered as such.""Thank you Victor," she says as she puts the pen away. "Well, Hayate, that's the best Victor could give us... What do you think this is?"
>>24655741"Since Miss Evangelyne, the previous owner of this resort, is a vampire, I thought that it might be some kind of flavored artificial blood for vampires. But the neurotoxin has me stumped."Let's check the Student Ability Database; surely there's a student in our class that's good with biochemistry.
>>24655741Neurotoxin means the blood-substitute theory is unlikely. Maybe it's some kind of vampire poison. It's delicious and irresistible, but fatal.
>>24655741Something vampire related.Good thing we didn't try tasting it.
>>24655741So it's blood-derived hemoglobin with a bit of alcohol in it, and our villa was previously owned by a vampire. It's a mixed drink for bloodsuckers.
>>24655741Okay...neurotoxin. In my experience those are normally bad, so I'm amending my guess to say it's supposed to SEEM like a flavored blood substitute, but is in fact a poison meant to kill other vampires. I guess. I really don't know.
>>24655741"Since Miss Evangeline, the previous owner of this resort, is a vampire, I thought that it might be some kind of flavored artificial blood for vampires. But the neurotoxin has me stumped.""Hmnnn I see... Maybe it's some kind of poison for other vampires?""Possibly, but why would it need the vitamins and calcium?""I..." she considers this, "I'm stumped too.""Why don't you ask Evangeline then?" she finally suggests.[ ]Ask Eva[ ]Consult Student Database[ ]Other
>>24655924[x] OtherGo do something else like read or prank people, we can ask Eva next time we see her.
>>24655924[x]Consult Student DatabaseI would like to have a chance for more characterization of our class.
>>24655924[ ]Ask EvaBecause why not go the direct route first? No need to go out of our way immediately if the answer could be just a call away.Also, why exactly are we doing this? Besides the fact that this was apparently what everyone in the thread wanted to do yesterday?
>>24655999Because it's an item that we've had in our inventory for a long time, that we always meant to get analyzed but never did. We're trying to get all of the things we meant to get done, finished, before the end of Advanced Class and we're sent out on our field training where we won't have access to the Bureau's facilities or resources to do all this kind of work.
>>24655924>[ ]Ask EvaWe also needed to ask her when she'll be able to reinforce the wards; wouldn't want her to come to the resort and have no one there to greet her.
>>24656063But we're invisible in a resort house full of women.Surely there are more pressing matters to attend to.
>>24655993>Consult Student DatabaseLet's reintroduce as many characters as possible.Also holy shit, I'm actually in a MSQ thread. I stopped by for like the first three threads, disregarded it until like a year later then marathonned the archive. By the time I caught up, you were on hiatus.
>>24656089Like what?But seriously the girls are always there and we can always go invisible, it's nothing special.

>>24656219Since you and your science-y girlfriend are both stumped as to what this potion is, you decide that the best way to solve this small mystery would be to ask the house's original owner.Having Kraus link you up mentally with Negi's mentor, the small vampire Evangeline McDowell, you begin to ask her about the green goo.'Good evening miss Evangeline.''And a good evening to you as well Ayasaki' 'I recently found some mysterious liquid here in the house and I was wondering what it was.''Boya, I used to keep many 'mystirious liquids' there when I lived in it, you need to be more specific.''Well... It's green, made from what I assume is blood and has poison in it.''...' A moment of silence, like she was trying to remember something.'Ah! It's that!'***Rollem for possible plot***Taking the 5th roll
Rolled 63>>24656378here we go!

>>24656523Oh right, that's who I'm missing from >>24656329Sakura is in our class.
>>24656444'And... what exactly is it?' you ask her.'It's a nightcap.''A nightcap?'"yeah, something to get me to fall asleep.''errr...?''You see, boya, back when I first started working here, I had to adjust my sleeping habits to fit in with everyone else's... Being a nocturnal creature for centuries makes that hard.''I see... but what about the poison?''Once you become an old vampire like me, drugs and other stuff have no effect on you, that conch-shell toxin was the best thing I could find at the time to help me get drowsy."'Oh...''You sound disappointed... kukuku!' she laughs somewhat cutely'Don't tell me you thought you found some kind of all powerful potion?'[ ] I did actually[ ] no, not really
>>24656565I was hoping it was
Rolled 54>>24656565No, not really. I thought it was a flavored blood substitute at first. Maybe melon or apple flavored.
>>24656565[x] I did actually'To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if some rock I kicked over on accident was actually a super-weapon of some kind. Everything here is exceptional in one way or another.'
>>24656565"No, not really, it just wasn't what I expected." Then ask about rewarding the place.
>>24656565>[ ] I did actually"Well, maybe not all powerful, but if not a flavored artificial blood beverage, then maybe a transformation potion of some kind."
>>24656565>Not really"Once I started analyzing it, I thought it was some sort of blood-substitute first, then some kind of vampire poison once I saw the toxin.""What? I don't know jack-all about your kind's physiology."
>>24656565also remember to talk to her about the outfit from the chest we found as well as the note (there might have been a pic that went with it)
>>24656676Better to only mention that we found a photo of hers that she might want back. Don't want to get too detailed; better to not get on her bad side.
>>24656646Might have been something better if we rolled higher.

'I kinda did, actually.''kukuku... I made sure to take everything dangerous out of that place when I put it up on the market.. There shouldn't be any potions or weapons or grimoires there anymore... I think.'The loaded silence that followed that remark unsettled you.'Anyway, If I remember correctly, I told you that I needed to reset the wards I had there did I not?''Yes miss Eva, you did.''Well, I'm free right now, and I don't think you also have anything to do, mind if I come over and do it?'[ ]Sure[ ]maybe some other day>captcha>LOOKOUT DANGERDS
>>24656833>[ ]SureShould get this done before we go away for the 2 week field training.
>>24656833Feel free, but I should let you know that I'm kind of invisible at the moment.
>>24656833[x]Sure'Will my family have to vacate while you do that, or can they stay?'those erds were already danged when I found 'em, I swear, ex-Scouts honor.
>>24656833Sure if you don't mindI am sort of invisible at the moment though so I won't be able to greet you properly
>>24656833"Of course you may, but I'm afraid I'm testing an invisibility potion at the moment."
'Please, feel free to do so. Does my family have to vacate the premises while you do it?''Nah. They just need to stay out of the room.''Okay Miss Evangeline, I will await your arrival...'"I'm already here." She answers from the hallway.You and Ursula head out to meet her, ignoring question of how she got here so fast, and prepare to let her have the lab as long as she needs it."So miss Eva, we'll leave everything in your hands then..." you say as you think of heading into the den to prep some tea for your guest later."No. You need to stay." she answers as she throws a cursory nod at Ursula, "I'm sure you want to know just what's under that floor. Also, I just might need to teach you how to strengthen those wards in-case you need to do it while I'm unavailable.""Of course." you answer a bit nervously in response to the serious tone she was using."I'll be down in my lab then." Ursula tells you wit ha kiss on a cheek before walking away."I'll see you alter then."You head into the lab with Evangeline, and the first thing she says is, "First, we need to get rid of all this stuff"Wit ha wave of her hand, the table and shelves disintegrate, the layer of concrete on the floor also vanishes, showing you the full magical array drawn on the original floor of the room."You," she asks, "what do you see?"*Roll for perception*taking the 6th

>>24657354so you're the swabby on lookout's boat of fail
>>24657225You look down at the entirety of the magic circle, but it makes little sense to you.The circle itself is compose of two large ones superimposed on each other, one drawn with what looked like dried blood, and the other burned into place.The runes running around the circles were completely alien to you and to Kraus' translator, the squiggly lines looking a lot like a made-up language than anything else."Well... I see the circle, no wait, make that two circles...""And? Can you read it?" she asks, an eyebrow up."Err no... I guess this writing system isn't in the Bureau database.""I see..." the eyebrow comes down. "Well, I guess that's for the best.""What is this exactly?" you ask her."It's a gate." she answers plainly.[ ]Where does it lead to?[ ]Are you keeping something in there?

>>24657389[X]D. All of the aboveHey, aren't we still invisible? Some stuff has been going on while I was off doing other things, and I feel like that was forgotten.
"A gate? Where does it lead to?" you ask the small vampire."No wait, let me rephrase that. It's a window.""If I may ask again, where does it lead to?"She knots her brow, her mouth in a weird grimace."It's... It's someplace you don't have to know about right now."[ ]Push her to tell you more [ ]leave it at that.

>>24657686why would you do that?!?!?!
Knowing that this information would prove vital to you eventually, specially since said information was about a mysterious majaikal gate/window in your house, you decide to try and push her further."Miss Evangeline, I think we both know that whatever information you're holding from me would be needed to properly look after this... thing."you say wit ha wave towards the magical array by your feet."I would appreciate it if I wasnt kept in the dark about something potentially dangerous to my family.""I can't. I really can't. You're not supposed to know yet.""Why can't you?""Bureau protocol. And it's also for your own safety.""Miss Evangeline, we both know that I'll try and find out more about this thing eventually after you show me the warding process. Why not tell me now to save both of us the trouble?"Again she knots her brow, the grimace on her face intense.[ ]Use the picture[ ]Don't use the picture

NEXT TIME ON MSQHayate No Gotoku!New thread on Wednesday, 2200, 4chan time.
>>24658341No, it's Hayate from Hayate the Combat Butler. We're Bizzaro Hayate.
>>24658323Are we looking at the main version of Hayate's universe?Did we just become Meta aware?
>>24658374I believe we did.Bueno.
>>24658344But will it really have that much impact?I mean, we've already been told a modified version of the Many Worlds hypothesis as an explanation for what we do and the Bureau. So parallel versions of ourselves isn't new or strange.>>24658374>>24658394Not unless we realize we're fiction and that there's a Plot that needs to unfold. We're only Parallel Worlds-aware.
Rolled 15>>24658394uh, no.Not Bueno.That puts us one step closer to getting mind-wiped.
>>24658323Have we just caught a glimpse of an actual plot element?I am filled with such joy. Can't wait for Wednesday.
>>24658409The Bureau's Many Worlds explanation is given only to the newbies, I believe.Most of the higher ups are surely meta aware.Now, If we do realize that we're fictional, we are screwed, but if we keep thinking that this is just the "main version" I think we won't get wiped.I think I remember LG talking about most Meta-aware agents becoming part of the "Watchers" whatever that is.
No butthurtno bansplotgood thread.
>>24658323>To that which this was once part toSo "fictional" may not be the correct term for it. It's probably complicated.
>>24658674Not if our Hayate was from an off-shoot the author planned but scrapped.I remember LG once talking about "dead plotlines being rescued"
>>24658464>Meta-aware agents becoming part of the "Watchers"No such reference is in the archives, or on Twitter.
