Twitter: @HeroRena>Last time on HERO QUEST!>Rena, a college dropout, was on her way home from work when suddenly a monster attacked! After defeating both the monster and it's master with little effort she was asked by the Rainbow Rangers to join the Hero Association! Rena graciously accepted and is now know as the hero, RENA! With the ability to make seemingly mundane moves extremely powerful. It has been 1 day since she joined and she now finds herself within her base.
>Rena is laying about on her couch looking at the contents of a package she'd just recieved.Huh... It's from the Hero Association. I got a Morpher which allows me to easily change into my hero costume. But... All it does it put an R on my sweater.And this tablet thing. It looks like it has info on all the heroes and villains known.The numbers of both keep going up and down though.
>>27904619Well wonderful we get into a hero job where people are dying every day and we don't even get a proper fucking costume, wonderful.That's chuck this sweater out spite and get something cool, like a leather jacket. After we do that let's look up to see who the most dangerous villain of all is
Play with Cat
>>27904589Look up Monster Maestro on the tablet thingie.After that, use our money to go back to college.
>>27904619Ask the black cat if it wants to be our animal side-kick.
>>27904721What would be his/her hero name? Snuggle the cat?
>>27904619Are there guidelines for D-rank heroes in some sort of manual? If so, thoroughly read them. Otherwise, look up that person who burned your frozen lasagna yesterday- getting hit in the face with a rock hurts and villains like to get revenge on people, especially heroes that hurt them.And pet your cat.
>>27904703>>27904676Done and done.>>27904721Kitty is not going out there to fight. I don't think -I- even want to go out and fight.>>27904667The costume works. Sorta. I can take more hits in it. It just doesn't look cool.Now, the most powerful villain... Let's see...>Lord of Death>Rank: S-Class 1 (Villain)>Powers: Instant Death, Super Strength, Flight, Invulnerability.>Note: Flee on sight. Can not be defeated......>>27904745>>27904715>Monster Maestro>Rank: C-Class 17 (Villain)>Powers: Summoning Monsters, Using Monster Abilities (ex: Flight, Telepathy, Breathing Fire).>Note: D Class should not engage this villain in combat. Has been known to kidnap Heroes.>>27904745Well the rules I read are pretty simple. Basically whenever I put on the suit I'm on duty and I'm fair game to other Villains. Typically a Villain won't attack me unless I'm in costume but they're Villains so they break whatever rule they want. Also I need to be sure not to hurt and civilians. Also, if I don't beat one villain a week I'm fired...
>>27904820>Also, if I don't beat one villain a week I'm fired...Lets find the weakest villain on that list and go throw rock at him.
>>27904820Begin training!...or at least go to the gym or something.
>>27904928But training is hard! And gym is expensive.
>>27904860I actually tried that and every time I look at the lowest of the low they just vanish like the second I check on them. So... I'm really not the only one with this idea.>>27904928Nnnnn....I don't want to...I don't even want to do this stupid job.Sure, I made more in one day than I do in a month but... My other job was simple. And I didn't have to risk dying.Maybe I should go complain to the mayor.
>>27904936>>27904960Ok then. Start small. Do a push up.
>>27904820Are you paid on a per-villain basis, or a per-time basis? If the latter, lie low for five days before doing anything, since you just beat a villain and don't need to make your life any more dangerous than it has to be. If the former, we'll want to find and target weak villains. Hopefully we can build up some cash and then quit this job before we get killed.
>>27904960In that case, lets find a weak looking d rank villain, find him and throw rock at him.Or we could pretend that the mayor was secretly a villain and then throw rocks at him.
>>27904960Look for old records of Silver Ranger.>they just vanish like the second I check on themErm... I'm gonna guess this might apply to heroes too.Hero HQ still gives free meals to heroes? Better make the most of it, I guess.
Go out on the street and yell 'Monster maestro is a jerk!' and then they'll come running and we can throw more rocks at her.
>>27905068You are thinking pretty small. Lets shout that she is a slut instead.
>>27905068>>27905080Let's not. Throwing a rock at someone who is attacking you is one thing; actively picking fights is another. We might have this hero job but that's no excuse to be a bitch to others.
>>27904960It's all cool. They didn't even confirm if we actually did beat up MM. We can just choose some random bandit on the list and pretend we beat him
>>27904980It's per villain it seems. So like if a group of em attack I get three seperate payments for each. Unless... Okay, it says unless the group COUNTS as one villain. Apparently some Hero named Iced-T took on a Villain named The Multiplication and they ended up having to pay him $1,230,750. Also, I don't need to kill them. Just getting them to retreat is good enough.>>27905030She's... Not on the list. It looks like they only keep current Heroes.Getting a free meal sounds good.>Rena gets dressed and heads off once again to the Hero Association.>>27905068>>27905080... Really?Okay."Monster Maestro is a jerk! And a..." I can't say that.Yeah, she's not here. I guess if it were as easy as calling out to my enemies I could just shout the names of crappy Villains.
>>27905068>>27905080None of that- that's a way for villains to target you. Let's go complain to the mayor's daughter- it's her team's fault that we lost or nice job and have villains after us now.Maybe consider an exercise regimen if there isn't a way to get out of this- and there probably isn't. You've made an enemy of a villain and now she'll probably come for you even if you do manage to get fired. Worse- you won't be able to run to the Hero Association for help.
>>27904960>Start jogging. You'll get exercise AND random encounters.
>>27905152Lets go for a nice walk alone in the park then. It will allow us to reflect on our situation.Hopefully no villain will follow us and attack us.Nope, no villain at all.
>>27905152I'm assuming there's a penalty for high-teirs taking on lower heroes. So just jog or some shit.
>>27905152In the future, do not follow idiotic suggestions. Also, someone wants to talk to you if you turn around.
>>27905152Turn around. slowly.
>>27905152>>27905215>Also, someone wants to talk to you if you turn around.Yeah, that is pretty embarrassing shouting out at nothing in particular, then have someone actually listening to what we're doing.
>>27905288No! If we don't see it, it can't hurt us.Besides we don't have any reason to turn around.Nope, no reason at all.
>>27905152Ask if she's a esper
>>27905214Well it is seen as cowardly or like a A-Rank Hero to take on a D-Rank Villain. Vice versa.>>27905288>>27905215>>27905300>>27905303What..?>She turns around and sees the Monster Maestro standing there.Oh, shit! She actually appeared!MM: "... You are so lucky it's my day off. You better watch yourself though, you freak. You just made the list of every D-Rank Villain miles around. Even a few B-Ranks are looking to kick your skinny ass."
>>27905346So, how is your nose MM?By the way, I really like your new haircut.
>>27905346>you freakSo says the woman-bat.
>>27905346"You still owe me 12.99 for that lasagna. You'll continue to be a jerk until you pay me back."
>>27905346Hey, it was her fault. Her monster attacked you even when you tried to be diplomatic and then she burned your frozen lasagnas and caused the events that lost you your nice job.Still, hitting her in the face with a rock was an accident- you didn't mean to aim for the face. You should apologize for that.Then pester her until she repays you for your frozen lasagna.
>>27905412This is so true.
>>27905412this.She might also know some weak villain for us to rock.
>>27905346We could hug her, say that we are sorry for the face thing and then ask for our 12.99 back.
"Look, I'm sorry about hitting you in the face with a rock. I know that must've really hurt. But you still owe me 12.99 for that lasagna. You'll continue to be a jerk until you pay me back."MM: "Are you serious!? I just told you that people want you DEAD and you're still going on about that fucking lasagna!? IT WASN'T EVEN GOOD LASAGNA! IT WAS CRAPPY FROZEN LASAGNA! -I- could make better lasagna!"
>>27905494"I'll accept your gracious offer of lasagna. I'll call it even, then."
>>27905494>-I- could make better lasagna!"Well prove it then! Make me some lasagna you unkind lady!
>>27905494>-I- could make better lasagna!Really?Work on the most doubtful face we can muster so she can prove it herself.Also, for her to reveal her secret villain lair.
>>27905494"Oh? Well, then, if you make ME some better lasagna, that would also be acceptable."
>>27905494"Alright! Make me better lasagna like you said you would, and I'll call it even. And say you're not a jerk.
>>27905506This. Also, it was a flash sale. Also, since you aren't on the clock, what's her name? You can't very well go on calling her by her villain name if she isn't out being a villain right now.
>>27905494Then do that and we will be even.
>>27905494"Show me"Yes we are going to get dinner with her somehow. Because why not.
>>27905494Get all excited, then rush over and hug her "A DATE? With a cute girl? I'd love to! When should I come over?" :D
>>27905494And this is the beginning of a wonderful love/hate relationship with subtle homoerotic undertones.
>>27905606>subtle>>27905604>hug her "A DATE? With a cute girl? I'd love to! Yeah, that's not how subtle is done.
>>27905604I want to veto this. This isn't what we should do. We should be subtle.
>>27905531"Really? I don't know... Lasagna is pretty tough to make..."MM: "It really isn't! Maybe if you read a book on it you'd make some yourself!""Show me. Make me a good lasagna and we'll call it even."MM: "FINE!">Rena finds herself being dragged away.>She remembers something about the Monster Maestro kidnapping Heroes.
>>27905684Grab a rock on the way. Free food is totes worth kidnaps.
>>27905684You have your mace, right? Also, pocket a rock if you see a good one without her noticing.Also, maybe she's just bad at this? I mean, you beat her with a rock after all.
>>27905684>update 1/2more incoming?
>>27905684>Monster Maestro kidnapping Heroes.Who knows maybe she has prisoners we can free. Let's just go with it, see what happens.
Come on, she couldn't be kidnapping us on her day off right?
>The Monster Maestro walks Rena through familiar streets and eventually stops in front of an apartment building. She walks her up 5 flights of stairs and drags her into an apartment.MM: "This is my place. Touch anything and I cut you.">She storms off into the kitchen. Rena can hear her opening cupboards. She sounds upset....I expected more tentacles here.
>>27905823Sit down on the couch and keep our hands in our lap and wait patiently.
look around, but no touchy. like examine her costume.
>>27905823>clothes and shit just lying on the floorWhat a slob. Pick some of that up and tidy a bit while we wait.
>>27905823Are those dirty clothes on the floor? ewwwwNice costume, through one bad gust of wind and...Lets sit down somewhere clean while waiting.
>>27905823Go watch her cook. Who knows, we might learn something about lasagna.
>>27905823Aw yiss, lasagna party at MM's place? Call some other super hero friends, and maybe even a villain or two! Everybody loves lasagna parties!
>>27905823Begin tidying the place up a little.
>>27905823We could also try and put on her costume, for hilarity.
>>27905909NoooooWe don't even know if it's the right size!
>>27905887>>27905860>>27905850Ugh... This place is a mess...I can't stand looking at it.>Rena begins picking up junk and folding clothes.MM: "Hey, I told you not to touch anything!""I'm just cleaning up a bit. No offense but your home is kinda messy."MM: "Screw you, I live alone anyway.""Well, so do I. But my mom always said that a clean home helps your soul. Maybe this is why you're always so angry?"MM: "... Shut up. Do whatever you want, just don't touch my costume."
>>27905993>MM: "Screw you, I live alone anyway."She is always going to be alone with that attitude.>MM: "... Shut up. Do whatever you want, just don't touch my costume."Put on the costume
>>27906021Don't put on the costume! Just... admire it.
>tfw no potluck partyaww
>>27906045Just touch the costume then.While giggling.
See if there are interesting pictures or other memorabilia around. Might get some insight into your quasi-nemesis>>27906021>Put on the costumeNah
>>27905993>MM: "... Shut up. Do whatever you want, just don't touch my costume."You know what we want, OP.
>>27905993Do not put on the costume. Prioritize lasagna. Continue tidying up the place.
>>27905993Don't pick up costume. Comment on smells of Lasagna appropriately.
>>27905993Continue tidying up.Observe costume carefully through not-at-all conspicuous display case.
>>27906109>Lick Monster Maestro
>>27906145what>>27906131"Smells good so far.">Monster Maestro does not reply.Eeeeehh... I probably shouldn't touch her costume. I'm already pushing my luck by getting her to make me food.>Rena continues cleaning until she comes across the only part of the home that isn't a mess.Oh, it's like her trophies or something.D'aww, look at little Monster Maestro.Huh... None of these newspaper clippings report any deaths. Just some destruction.
>>27906207She might be a jerk, but she's not a murderess, I guess?Anyway, focus less on snooping and more on lasagna. Go watch her cook.
>>27906207Compliment MM on her kill count.Go observe her cooking.
>>27906207Eat the trophy. We'll devour her strength through her idols.
>>27906207Say that she looks happy with her family.
>>27906289Considering someone has been torn out of that picture that may be a bad idea.
>>27906289She was so cute as a kid with her little monster wands!
>>27906207It's rather impressive that she's got such great control with the powers she does that she was able to not cause any casualties. Also, don't comment on the picture- you're so close to lasagna and that might be a sensitive subject, the picture is ripped so that someone seems to be torn out of it after all!
>>27906333>>27906320Gotcha, no family comments. Let's see how that lasagna is coming.>>27906330I know, right? Gosh, you just wanna pinch her little Villain cheeks.>>27906251"0 kills, huh? Impressive."MM: "Want me to add one to that number? You didn't touch my trophies, did you?""Nope. How's it coming?"MM: "It takes a while to cook. Like, over an hour or so.""Did you tie your hair back."MM: "I didn't want any of it to get in the food. Now stop bothering me."
The person missing from the picture is probably her dad. Narrative convenience suggests he was a hero.Continue cleaning. Once Lasagna is ready, sit down and eat. Ask her how people go about getting powers.Give her your number as you leave. Tell her you're looking forward to your second date.Captcha: Each kinlsrYes. EACH.
>>27906394Does she have a tv? Ask her what she likes to watch?
>>27906394>CM apronChef Maestro?
>>27906394"So what's this I hear about you kidnapping heroes?"
once it's in the oven ask where she gets her monsters from.
>>27906423"Is that your... chef maestro apron?"
>>27906394I... is this the infamous naked apron?!
>>27906394You seem like a good cook, cooking maestro.What impressed me was your incredible control over your power. Any villain could rack up a high kill count, but it take a really skilled one to do damage without killing.What do you usually do on your days off?
>>27906394Ask her how long she's been a villian.And props to her for sticking to 0 kills. that must be hard in her line of work.
>meet villain you previously pissed off>end up hanging out at her place while she cooks dinner for youRena really does have the aura of normalcy.
>>27906527Either that or a powerful aura of yuri.
"Is that your... chef maestro apron?"MM: "Do you ever stop asking questions!?""My mom said it's good to be curious."MM:"...">She shoves the lasagna into the over and takes off her apron. She hangs it up on a hook and steps out of the kitchen. She sits down on her couch and turns on TV.Ah... Seems she likes crime shows."So... How long have you been a Villain?"MM: "Seriously? Ugh... I've been doing this for like 3 years. Been training my whole life.""I can tell. It must take a lot to keep a 0 kill count."MM: "Yeah, well... A lot of people think Villains just go around killing people. I mean, some dobut that's like not all of us. Just like how some Heroes kill Villains but not all of them do. I just get paid to cause some chaos.""I heard you kidnapped people."MM: "I let em go later. Now can we stop talking? I'm trying to watch my show.""... Is this how you spend your days off?"MM: "... Yes.""So where do you get your monsters from?"MM: "Ugh..." She waves her hand in the air. "Somewhere, out there."
>>27906646"... Well, now it's your turn to ask me questions, I guess. It's only fair."
>>27906646We never did get a name. Or did proper introductions for that matter.
>>27906646Ask her to demonstrate. It'll be more interesting then whatever silly show is on tv.
It's obviously Cooking Mama.
>>27906646Sit down next to her and enjoy the TV show. Smile like you mean it.
>>27906646Sit down and watch TV.
>>27906646So I guess they didn't force you to join them.Villains seem more civil than heroes sometime.Your costume looks much betetr than mine MM. Mine is just my sweater with an R on it.
>>27906646Is there some kind of "Villians association" that pays you for doing evil deeds?
>>27906646Well, she's making you lasagna and might be trying to be polite? Either way, you've probably dealt with worse people before. Still, you've probably pried enough for the moment.Either way, you should introduce yourself- first name only- and ask to sit down. Standing around while someone else sits and watches TV is really awkward.
>>27905993Ask her about days off. Do villains get days off? Wtf is up with that.
>>27906646Sit and watch her show with her, ask questions during commercials.
>>27906788Yeah this. Its important to not interrupt her show.
>>27906646Now that I'm caught up still wanna know about villain days off.
ITT: we somehow friend it p with a badguywhat in the fuck?
>>27906856Friend is the first step.Next step is love.Last step is building our empire.
>>27906856She'd probably stab us if we called her our friend.
>>27906856I dunno, it seems like she's just a punch-clock villain. A little pissy, but she's cooking Rena some lasagna so she's pretty cool in my books.
>>27906883When do we Lament the Women?
>>27906903Lets wait to taste her lasagna before calling her cool.It could be vegan lasagna for all we know.
>>27906883No, no, no. In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.This is fundamental stuff, anon.
Let's ask her advice on defeating some villains. There has to be some villainous twits she'd like to see knocked around.
"So...">She sits down beside her and waits for a commercial."Villains have days off, huh?"MM: "It's not anything official. I just don't feel like working today.""I hear ya. So, what's your name? Mine's Rena."MM: "... It's Bridgette. That's all I'm telling you.""That's fine. So, did you get forced to join the Villains."MM: "What? No. They're not -that- evil. It's a family thing.">The show comes back on and it's a few minutes of silence."... Anything you wanna ask me?"MM: "No.""Okay. So... Is there some kind of Villain Association that pays you?"MM: "Why would I tell you anything about them? If you wanna know, join up. Not that they'd accept you. We only take the best of the best."
>>27907027"Geez, seriously? I literally got drafted as a hero. They called my old job, got me fired, and told me now I villains for a living. Why do you guys get to have standards?"
>>27907027I want to second >>27907069
>>27907027Get slightly closer to her on the sofa.Also this >>27907069
>>27907069>now I villainsFight. Now I fight villains.
>>27907069I like this.
>>27907069This sounds nice
>>27907027Say this >>27907069Then do this >>27907000
>>27907027Braid her hair.
>>27907199How deliciously cute would that be. Yuri time.
*mutter* Beat you. Somehow.Good old rock. Nothing beats that.
>>27907199>Rena reaches out and Bridgette slaps her hand away.B: "Don't touch.""Sorry. You know I can't believe they let you join when you wanted. I was practically forced to join the thing. Literally, they fired my from my old one. Why do you guys have the standards?"B: "Heroes suck. It's as simple as that. Villains may be evil but we have a stricter set of rules.""Any advice on how to fight villains?"B: "... Do you really think I'll give that away?"
not you, i mean, i am sure there is someone you really don't like and would love to see beaten.
>>27907380B: "Heroes suck. It's as simple as that. Villains may be evil but we have a stricter set of rules."Well at least they aren't pouting all the time. Cheer up monstercup.That lasagna smells delicious by the way.
>>27907380"Couldn't hurt to ask. And hey, for all I know you might hate some of your coworkers."
>>27907380Maybe not technique, but perhaps a few names of people you don't like...
>>27907380Well you're being nice so it was worth a try.Ask her what her lasagne recipe is.
>>27907380Ask where the bathroom is. Then go sneaky sneaky exploring.
>>27907520No. It is rude to go snooping in others' houses.
>>27907520Don't do this. You've managed to get dialogue going. Also, just a quick Question, Rena- you do have other friends, right? And you can't count your cat as a friend.
Well not like, villains you like.Come on, I'll probably die pretty soon anyway.... I'll be your friend if you do.
>>27907520We already had a run of the place, I doubt there is anything else to see. It's just an apartment, after all.
>>27907380Ask if she can teach us how to make lasagne.
>>27907380well, I was hoping if there were any villains you didn't like....I mean, the hero association does pay pretty well...
>>27907380>"C'mon, we could be one of those hero-villain duos where they're more rivals than enemies!"
>>27907601That's just insulting. We're a newbie, and she's trained her whole life. I'm sure she wants a rival who's actually competent.
"Couldn't hurt to ask. And hey, for all I know you might hate some of your coworkers."B: "Of course I do. But there's still like a code you know? Can't just betray people like that.""Yeah. Lasagna smells good."B: "Of course it does.">>27907520... I don't want to even know what her bathroom looks like.>>27907558Cat's aren't friends? Then I have no friends.>The show ends and Bridgette stands up.B: "It's about done now.">She goes into the kitchen and pulls out the lasagna. She lets it cool for a moment then cuts Rena a piece.B: "Now you'll see what real lasagna tastes like!"Oh my god that smells so good.>She takes a bite.Mmmmm!!!B: "Well?"
>>27907624>I'm sure she wants a rival who's actually competent.We beat her with a rock.
>>27907633Shed tears of joy for getting a proper, home cooked meal.Take back what was said about Monster Maestro being a jerk, I guess.
this is amazing, i love you! heat of the moment comment!
>>27907638"This tastes like happiness.">>27907380"Thank god. After those ranger pricks literally FORCED me into joining them I was worried everybody involved was dumb as rocks. Yea, these guys have issues. And I don't just mean mismanagement."
>>27907633"TEACH ME, KITCHEN MISTRESS."
>>27907633Your lasagna redefines the concept of heaven!It tastes just like the one mama used to make!TEACH ME YOUR SECRET!
>>27907633How can a villain so evil do something so good?
>>27907685Lets wait until third date before asking that.
>>27907633Goddamnit Rena stop being adorableMy heart can't deal
>>27907633Totally repaid me. If my cooking didn't suck I'd have to make you a meal. So I'll say sorry for hitting you with a rock.
>>27907633"You are going to be a good wife!"
>>27907679IT'S KITCHEN MAESTRO YOU NOOBSHIT
>>27907767It's actually "Monster Maestro", or maybe "Cooking Maestro" if we believe her apron. Changing both was the joke- calling her by a random super-ish title that isn't hers, appropriate to her current actions?Eh, whatever.
"Oh man, you can consider your debt repaid! This is the best thing ever! You are officially no longer a jerk."B: "Hahahaha! Now you see that my cooking is truly superior to anything mass produced!">Rena takes another bite.B: "Now, if you want the antidote to that poison you must swear loyalty to me!""Huh?"B: "Kidding. I don't poison on my days off.""Phew... Man, you really gotta teach my how to do this. I haven't had cooking this good since I lived with my mom."B: "Oh, I'm sure you wished you knew my secrets. However, I am afraid I will be taking this recipe to my grave! Bwahahahaha!"Her casual talk still sounds so villainy.
>>27907814You should one up her. Demand that she release the recipe for the good of all mankind! Swear eternal vengeance unless you can get more of this delicious!
>>27907814>However, I am afraid I will be taking this recipe to my grave! To your grave? You don't plan on having children Cooking Mastro?You know that you are a really adorable villain.
>>27907814You know, I think we could be friends with the whole Villain and Hero thing.
>>27907814QQ MM. QQ
>>27907857While I think this is a good reply, I'm concerned we might get things a bit... Heated at her apartment if we start proclaiming shit at each other.
>>27907814It's clear that she's spent years preparing for the villain lifestyle. What a hard worker!"If I threatened to sneak into your house on a raid for your cookbooks, would that be more villainous because I'm stealing or heroic because I'm releasing this deliciousness from your sinister clutches?"
>>27907814QQ MM. QQAlso we should hang out more. Become the female equivalent of bros.
>>27907894So long as she doesn't end up back at our place playing with out kitty, it's all good. Rena should have some professional standards.
>>27907923>playing with out kitty
>>27907903I like the idea of on duty enemy's off duty friends like that old cartoon with the coyote and the sheep dog.
>>27907923>So long as she doesn't end up back at our place playing with out kittyWhich kitty are we talking about here, anon.
>>27907960I agree with this idea fullheartedly
>>27907977Which one do you think.
>>27908007Her hairy one?
>>27907977>>27907949Guys... Stop being so lewd.I'm talking about Rena's adorable kitty. It needs attention, but I'm not sure that we should let MM have a go at it. After all, she summons monsters, and I'm not sure kitties and monsters mix well.
>>27907814Now that the lasagne business is out of the way, ask if she wants to be friends.It's sad to not have any friends.
>>27908048>I'm talking about Rena's adorable kitty. It needs attention, but I'm not sure that we should let MM have a go at it. After all, she summons monsters, and I'm not sure kitties and monsters mix well.You are not helping.
"If I threatened to sneak into your house on a raid for your cookbooks, would that be more villainous because I'm stealing or heroic because I'm releasing this deliciousness from your sinister clutches?"B: "... That is a very good question. If you do break in here though I'll have to cut ya.""I won't. However I demand that you release this recipe for all to use! For the good of mankind!"B: "What!? Never!""Do it!"B: "The only way you'll get that recipe is if you fight me for it!"Wow, she really gets into the whole villain thing. It's adorable."Oh I will... Some other day. It's my day off right now."B: "... Pfthahahaha!" She starts laughing and keeps going for a few minutes. It's the first time Rena's seen her actually smile. She wipes a tear away when she's finished. "Alright, done eating? Take the rest and get the hell out of my house."
>>27908077"Want hang out again when you have free time?
>>27908077Give her a big warm hug and tell her that we will enjoy our next date with her.
>>27908077Say farewell and thank her again for the meal.Also see if you can claim this as 'distracted a villain for a few hours'.
>>27908077Thank her profusely, tell her that you had a great time and you'll have to do this again sometime.Congratulations, you made a frenemy. It's all the best parts of a friend and an enemy, but in one adorable package.
>>27908077"Sure. Thanks a bunch, Bridgette. Hey, I heard there's this new movie coming out on Friday, want to go see it with me?"
>>27908077Give her a hug and thank her for the food.Tell her that we should do this again some time when we're both not on the clock.
>>27908094>>27908115And already /tg/ is trying to turn Rena into a lesbian.>>27908125this has my vote, though.
>>27908077OK FINEI'm going.Not like I wanted to stay anyway.Oh god I'm so lonely.
>>27907814"Heheh. It's nice to meet somebody else caught up in all this that's actually a person, and not a deranged muppet."Pack up the rest of the Lasagna and write down your phone number."Thanks, I had fun" Hand her your number "I can't top your cooking, so I'll find a decent restaurant for next [i]date[/i]~"Grin and leave
>>27908144It was going to happen. I can't even be upset at this anymore.
Guys, let's not actually go full yuri. She'll be a full villain tomorrow, and who knows what that would mean.
>>27908131My vote goes for this.
>>27908144It's much slower then what I expected
>>27908144>And already /tg/ is trying to turn Rena into a lesbian.Hugs and dates =/= lesbian.
>>27908161>>27908144Well this is a Larro quest
>>27908144It was going to happen.You can't give /tg/ a character so adorable and expect them not to turn their yuri goggles to full power. It's just the nature of the beast.
>>27908190I just blame the fact that its /tg/
>>27908167My sister hugs other females all the time.
>>27908077In hindsight, MM enacted a pretty good villainous plan here.Now Rena won't be able to taste frozen lasagna the same way again after MM's home cooked lasagna, and she'll have to find another source of cheap frozen goods.Mad props for her keikaku.
"Thanks a bunch. This is some seriously good stuff. We gotta do this again. So you can uh... Show me how good Villainous cooking is."B: "But of course... Lasagna is only the tip of the iceberg. If I showed you my true talents you would never be able eat that crappy Hero Association food again!""And that would be just terrible."B: "Exactly! Next time I'm off I will be sure to show you exactly what I'm capable of!""Til then!">She moves in for a hug but Bridgette pokes her head.B: "No touching. Now, go.">Rena leaves the apartment. Outside of the building a small robot is floating. A check is attached to it.R: "BZZZT. Records show you delayed some potentially villainous activity and infiltrated the enemy base. Here is $2,000. You are now Rank 84. Your mission for the week is done."Oh, hey. Look at that.
>>27908257Sweet. We just got payed for eating lasagna. This Hero gig is pretty alright.
>>27908257You are now aware there are heroes who just seduce their opponents.
>>27908232Are they her friends, or people who she threw a rock at, and then demand that they make them lasagna?
>>27908257Alright, new plan.Befriend all villains.Make mad dosh.
>paid for being friendly... maybe this hero thing wont be so bad
>>27908257We should do this professionally. Just make friends with villains and hang out, get paid thousands of dollars for it. Could be pretty alright.
>>27908284And we throw rocks at the ones that don't want to be friends!
>>27908257Sweet! I think, Rena, that you should spend some of that on a fancy cat toy.Also maybe you should buy a cookbook, so you can learn to make something delicious to take over next time.
>>27908257We now have 4000 dollars let's go clothes shopping.
Get a phone, get her number, ask her to the movies
>>27908257WowYou got paid $2k for throwing a rock at somebody, and then another $2k for apologising to that person and then eating lasagne. It's almost surreal.
>>27908308>that you should spend some of that on a fancy cat toy.Yeah, Rena needs some alone time.
>>27908257"I get paid for hanging out and eating delicious lasagna? Maybe this isn't so bad after all."Time to start doing 100 pushups, situps, and a 10km run every day for 3 years too. Also only a banana for breakfasts and no air conditioning during the summer.
>>27908257I get what happened... They paid us because our "aura" negated her, so she couldn't engage in villainy. Also, we managed to get invited into her home.The heroes are stupid. Lets milk them for all they're worth.
I wonder if Bridgette gets paid for obstructing Justice with this too. If so, the two of them just found a way to make $4000 or so dollars a week just by hanging out with each other.
>>27908375I am starting to think we really have some power.>>27908257Go take a walk in the park.
>>27908337My cat is named Kitty, not Rena. Why would I name my cat after myself?Anyway this is like the best job EVER. No way in hell am I quitting now.I got like $3950 saved up so I could get anything I want. Oh man I should get some new clothes. And maybe a new TV. And some cable to go with that TV. And a new computer. And maybe even sign up for the gym. Maybe.>>27908284I'm going to make so many friends now.
>>27908426Say hello to MM+
>>27908426OH GOD IT'S MEDUSACLOSE YOUR EYES RENA
>>27908426Rena confirmed for worst nameNow buy all the things
>>27908426Hey yeah! Some nice new clothes would make you feel better, and it'll be easier to make new friends.Don't forget to save some money, in case a villain breaks your windows or something and you need to cover it.
>>27908426Look up. Wwwaaayyyy up
>>27908426"Oh, hello, ma'am! How are you today? Out visiting your daughter?"
>>27908426Oh, hey! Someone's there. Say hi.And KEEP COOL.
>>27908426Heads up, rookie.Also, shouldn't that shirt emblem be copyrighted?
>>27908426"Start with the one in front of you"
Rolled 10, 4, 20, 9 = 43>>27908426Say high to nice Medusa lady, she can't hurt us because of our power.
>>27908426Don't mention the snake tail. It might be a faux pas or something.
>>27908494Don't believe your own lies. Avoid looking in her eyes.
>>27908426Say hello to Mama Maestro of course!
>>27908470>>27908494I'm pretty sure monster master is maestros big bro, and not a girl.
>>27908559I don't know of any guys with a rack like that
>>27908559But Lamia Maestro has boobs.Speaking of boobs, for a college girl Rena's kinda flat.
Huh?>SLAM>The Villain has slammed Rena into a wall! Luckily Rena was able to change into her Costume right away or that would have killed her!MM+: "My my... Aren't you Rena? My sister told me all about you... Said you hurt her pretty bad. Made her bleed... Would you like it if I did that to you? Made you bleed? Hmm? Say something, dearie."I think she broke my everything.
>>27908602Now that's just uncalled for.
pretty sure you just did
>>27908545That's not her mother, but her brother.
>>27908608Hey, you apologized for that already. Besides, what's the state of the lasagna?
>>27908602They're in perfect proportional to her power.
>>27908608Go with "Ow."
>>27908608Your sister makes great Lasagna.
>>27908608Are you sure you should be fighting your sister's battles?
>>27908608What! You made up with her and everything!Show her the lasagne to prove it! It's a secret recipe, so she'll be able to recognise it.
>>27908608"I just had dinner with her! please stop hurting me."
"i already said sorry about that, she even made me lasagna. go ahead and ask her"
>>27908608I already apologised for that!Want some lasagnas?
*coughcough* Hi. Nice to meet you. Ow.
>>27908608Scream for help
>>27908632ThisShe'd better not have made Rena drop that lasagne
>>27908608"Your sister? You mean Bridgette. I was just over at her place. She makes great lasagna and I apologized for the rock thing."Show her the lasagna if she doesn't believe us.
>>27908608>I think she broke my everything."Haven't you already made me bleed? Maybe not externally, but that wall slam hurt. T_T"
>>27908642This, then >>27908649
>>27908608Auch, try not to puke your lasagna.
>>27908608All that money going to medical bill now.
"I just had dinner with her! Please stop hurting me!"MM+: "You're lying~""No, really! See!">Rena holds up the thankfully undestroyed lasagna.MM+: "Oh my... That does smell like her cooking.""So we're all cool about the rock thing! Apologized and everything!"MM+: "Hmm... Okay. But I should still kill you anyway. It's nothing personal now but... A gal's gotta eat.">She smiles at Rena.
>>27908776I don't think, I'll taste like your sister's cooking if you eat me even though I just ate her delicious lasagna
>>27908776Pout at her.Since we have kitty, we no doubt have learned the greatest of pouts from her.AND THEN PEPPER SPRAY.
>>27908776>MM+: "Hmm... Okay. But I should still kill you anyway. It's nothing personal now but... A gal's gotta eat."You can't eat me! My hero power makes me poisonous. I don't want you to die since you are Bridgette sister.
>>27908776Shove her face full of lasagne and run!
>>27908776Give Lasagna, its that or your life.
Oh god you're almost as cute as her
>>27908776"But then we'll never have movie night!"
>>27908776Offer her lasagna instead of our organs.
>>27908776Oh noPlease do not be eating RenaIn fact, it'd be great if you just didn't eat people full stop.
>>27908776Give lasagna. It's the only way out.
>>27908776Dang, she is female? I coulda sworn Monster Master was called her brother at the end of the last thread.Also say eating people is icky. She should find something else to eat. And something else does not include your lasagna. That is yours.
>>27908776Can't she share the lasagna?Besides, you saw her in that picture- she looked pretty normal here-http:images/1382577218039.png Why can;t she eat like a normal person?
>>27908812If that doesn't work than apply mace
>>27908823>>27908837>>27908812>>27908808Guys, if she wants lasagna she can just ask her sister to make her some any time. It's not an effective bargaining tool here.
>>27908867It's more of an emergency distraction then a bargain.
>>27908776Now that isn't very nice.I don't even taste good, since I've been subsisting on microwave food!You're only going to give yourself a heart-attack!A comment on the character art, btw. She's a big sis, got long hair, permanently closed eyes, and a decent rack. Yep, I won't be surprised if she goes "Ara ara~".
>>27908808>>27908812>>27908823>>27908837This and try to escape.
>>27908776MACE MACE MACE MACEPlease god I hope Larro suddenly doesn't like vore
>>27908897Thank God I wasn't the only one thinking she was Aratastic. That damn smile.We need to get a rock, fast.
No!!!! NOT THE LASAGNA!"Why do you want to eat me!? I don't even taste that good!"MM+ "Huh..? Oh, I don't want to... Like, eat you whole. I can't even do that. I'm just gonna drink all your blood.""That's not good either!">She moves in to bite Rena's neck when she hears someone call out.B: "Hey! Cut that out!">Monster Master moves away.MM+: "Huh?"B: "We've already settled out problem. Besides, it's her day off."MM+: "Oh? Is that true?">Rena nods. Monster Master sighs and lets go of her.MM+: "My my... I guess we will have to play another time then."B: "God, sis... Check your phone some time."MM+: "Sorry~ I left it at home."
Villains get paid for meaningless chaos. Heroes get paid "stopping" meaningless chaos.If it wasn't based on OPM, I would have thought that the Heroes/Villains were run by two separate insanely rich billionaires whose wealth was only surpassed by their boredom. It would fit the silliness of the setting quite nicely.I would be perfectly okay with this being true.
>>27908969Thank Bridgette for saving us and MM+ for not eating us. ATtempt to hug Brigette.
>>27908969Well, that was... a thing. Play it cool. Introduce ourselves properly, get her name, tell her it was nice to meet her (even though it wasn't)...
>>27908969We are just one big target for all the villains
>>27908969Still going to need medical attention but at least we get to keep our blood.
>>27908969Run home to kitty. Kitty won't crush our bones.
>>27908969"No harm, no foul.Except the ribs. Oww."
>>27908969oh god we're gonna get paid for "defeating" an A class villain aren't we? We are so fucked
>>27908969Back up all the way to the wall.While looking at the floor, tell Bridgette that her sister is scary in the meekest way possible.
>Rena goes in for another hug but is pushed away once again.B: "No touching."MM+: "She really doesn't like being touched.""Okay... Well... Thanks for not drinking my blood."MM+: "Of course~ I wouldn't want to hurt a civilian. What's your real name, miss?""Rena...">Monster Master loses the snake tail and shrinks to a more normal size.MM+: "Oh? How curious. Well right now you should keep calling me Monster Master but my real name is Cynthia. I do hope that you and my sister get along. She really could use more friends."B: "Sis..."MM+: "But don't let me catch you when you're on duty, okay~?"
"okay, i'll try"then WALK quickly, don't run
>>27909170>>MM+: "But don't let me catch you when you're on duty, okay~?"I promise you I won't. Go and play with our kitty.
>>27909170"I, uh, won't. That shapeshifting trick is kind of awesome. How did you learn to do that?"
>>27909170>MM+: "But don't let me catch you when you're on duty, okay~?"Okay, gotcha.Time to limp home then.
I wonder if this encounter counts as... an encounterOh man rolling in dosh... provided we're in Canada. Please tell me we're in Canada. God I hope we have some decent fucking healthcare
>>27909222Or maybe we could find a hero specializing in healthcare...Bama Ranger!
>>27909222but if it does, that could be the kinda shit people get promoted for, and well, I don't think we want that
>>27909170"I'll certainly try!Thanks for the save, Bridgette. I'll keep an ear out for any killer heroes taking notice of you~Neat shapeshifting trick, Cynthia; I really need to figure out how people get powers."
>>27909222If we claim this as an encounter then MM+ might find out, and she'll know we lied about it being our day off. And then we're not trustworthy and that's bad.
>>27909256Yeah, Bridgette already said there's a bunch of people already out to kill us.
Jesus Christ you lolicon fucks quit trying to hug the girl who doesn't want to be touched.
We didn't infiltrate this one's base or anything, just didn't get killed. Didn't even drive her off, really. Sooooo... doubt we get paid, but that's fine."Thanks again Bridgette, maybe we could compare pets as well as cooking, next time!"
>MM+: "Of course~ I wouldn't want to hurt a civilian. What's your real name, miss?">"Rena...">>Monster Master loses the snake tail and shrinks to a more normal size.>MM+: "Oh? How curious.Ya know, reading this sequence of events right here made me think that learning Rena's name turns Supers into normals, and that MM+ was surprised by this.So I guess every time we get a super villain encounter, we introduce ourselves first. Just to check.
>>27909310lolicon? Everyone here is an adult
>>27909278she didn't say kill right? I heard beat up.I hope it isn't kill.
>>27909321>"I'm Rena, but you may know me by my real name, Rena!">Deathlord falls to the ground and dies>Get paid
After this gets sorted out we should find Iced-THe obviously games the system, which we want to do, so we could learn a thing or two from him
"I, uh, won't. That shapeshifting trick is kind of awesome. How did you learn to do that?"MM+: "It's our family secret~ Now, run along. Before I rethink letting you live...""R-right.. Thanks again Bridgette."B: "Yeah, whatever. Seeya.">Rena runs home. She examines her wounds and is surprised to discover that there's only a small bruise.The suit is pretty sweet... Thought I'd be bleeding internally. Awesome.>She sits down on her sofa and pets her kitty. Not even a minute later there's a knock at the door. She goes and answers it.???: "GREETINGS, MISS! IT IS I, A-CLASS 20 HERO CHET..... MANLYSTACHE!""... Huh?"???: "I have come here to personally congratulate you on reaching C-Class!""Whaaaaat?"???: "Our records show that on your day off you managed to single handidly fend off the attack of an A-Class Villain. That is worthy of promotion! BE HAPPY! If you need any help on adjusting to your new rank I will be more than glad to show you the ropes with a few personal lessons!"
>>27909426His pantsI see itI see what you did thereIt is gloriously hilarious
>>27909426woah calling bullshit you had help
>>27909426Well we're gonna die quickly. Better write a will quick.
>>27909426"Um... does it come with a raise? And also, do we have any kind of healing benefits? I got a little smashed into a wall."
>>27909426No thanks, my power do not mesh well with other heroes.Go back to petting our kitty.
>>27909426"Can you tell me how to get some ACTUAL powers? To be honest I'm just really good at bluffing and making things up as I go along, and my ribs hurt WAY too much to do that at C rank."
>>27909426close the door slowly
>>27909442Oh shit, it took me a sec but I see it.
>>27909472Seconding this. Just close the door.
>>27909426Take the personal lessons. Learn how to quickdraw our mace.
>>27909426"Can't I just... refuse getting promoted? I never asked for this!"
>>27909426"your mustache...it looks soft and furry. like my cat"look at kitty then him and try to touch the mustache
>>27909426[X] - TAKE LESSONS TO AVOID BEING KILLEDIf this keeps up, we'll be like King in no time.
>>27909469This.>>27909496And then later this.
>>27909426accept the lessons, say our physical abilities aren't up to par and need trainingLeaves the implication that our aura is more than up to snuff while getting the lessons
>>27909426Will my newfound rank cause problems with villains? If so, plz hold me.
"No thank you...">Rena slowly closes the door.CM: "I AM AFRAID THAT THE INVITATION CAN NOT BE TURNED DOWN AT THIS MOMENT! It's okay, miss! I know you are afraid! Everyone is at first! Just relax, and you'll get into the swing of things eventually!"Aaaaaaaaah!I don't want any of this!
>>27909518WHY DO WE WANT TO APPEAR COMPETENT. WE AREN'T. GOOD PAY ISN'T WORTH HORRIBLE DEATH.
>>27909541Continue closing the door.Also, excellent reaction image.
>>27909541Rena, if you don't get the lessons, you're going to die. The Hero Association thinks you're awesome and will put you in situations based on that. You need to be awesome. Accept the lessons
>>27909541Can we not go public with this?
>>27909551our powers stem from how normal we are. NORMAL POWERS!
>>27909541ask if you can touch his mustache too sooth your nerves
>>27909541Blow the whistle. It'll definitely work this time!
>>27909541I don't have any power. I bluffed my way to rank C.I am dead if I face a villain immune to rocks.
remind yourself to google how to get superpowers later
>>27909541"I AM RENA, PLEASE STOP BEING CREEPY ABOUT THIS!"Can you call the cops on heroes if they are being a nuisance?Captcha: wax evytheynYou are not helping, Captcha.
>>27909541Time to test our Normalcy powers. If it indeed works that way.Step 1: Full self-introduction.
We need to practice our JankenWe've already semi-mastered the power of Rock, but are far from perfect.Next, we will need to discover the power of Paper, I suggest Pocket Confetti. No one ever expects Pocket Confetti.The final step will be the power of Scissors, but I'm not certain if we're ready for that.Our ultimate techniques can be Lizard and Spock.
Clearly we must accept then. Accept everything he has to give.
".... Can we just not make this public?"CM: "Of course! The only ones who will know are all the Heroes and Villains!""Ah...">Rena sinks down."How do Heroes get their powers?"CM: "THE SAME WAY AS YOU! They are either born with it, gain them through some experiment, or THROUGH SHEER MANLY WILLPOWER!""Gotcha... Well... I think I'll take some lessons from you."CM: "EXCELLENT! I am busy right now greeting others but tomorrow I should be free! Goodbye, Hero Rena! You are a shining example to all D-Class Heroes!"...I just wanted to go out and eat... Why do these things keep happening to me?
>>27909719Be happy Rena, I'm sure Chet Manlystache will be able to help. And if not, here's a workout schedule for youYou'll survive just finealso Janken
>>27909719>"Gotcha... Well... I think I'll take some lessons from you."Lets get a gym subscription.
>>27909719You failed to introduce yourself! You don't know if you can take away powers!Tell him you have no powers, and you were forced into this by crazy people.
>>27909719Follow the saitama schedule. Become female saitama. Except without the crippling boredom.Also, check on who the rank 1 hero is. Is it someone ridiculous like the strongest villain death guy?
Oh no... what if we've made a terrible mistake? What if she has not the power of normalcy, but rather... NON-NORMALCY!?It's almost too much to contemplate but... but it may be true.
>>27909754Who needs gym when we can buy bear mace?
