Twitter: @HeroRena>Last time on HERO QUEST!>Rena was kidnapped by the evil Monster Maestro! She has fought to stay alive for two days and two nights constantly on the lookout for an escape route!>It is the dawn of a new day... Will she escape!?
>Rena stretches and yawns. She had a terrible nightmare about people poking her with needles.>She still feels a bit tired.
>>28295072Discover bite marks and panic.
Rolled 55>>28295072Go take a shower without looking at yourself first.
>>28295072Take shower. Discover bleeding wounds.Scream.
>>28295060Try to get up, then pass out and fall over on top of MM.This is the ideal course of action.
>>28295072You... Well you might want to look at your arms, but keep your voice down, MM's sleeping and you don't want MM+ to hear you freak out.
>>28295072I think MM is a sleep nibbler or something
Rolled 33>>28295177We taste good perhaps?Lets get cleaned up before these get infected.
>>28295177A question you should pose to your host. Shouldn't she, y'know, keep you safe, what with you being her prisoner and all?
>>28295177Are those freckles or bite marks on her head?
>>28295212Bluuuuuh.... I got a buncha dried blood on me... Oh god, it's everywhere... At least she didn't go below my collar. Well, my arms. But that's it. I think.I need to check.>Rena hops into the shower. She washes off and inspects her wounds. They all seem to have healed completely and none have even left a mark.Yeah, it was just my arms and neck.>>28295213You know I'm not even mad about the bites. I'm just upset they happened when I was asleep. Sleep is like sacred. You should not mess with people when they sleep. I don't know if I want to confront them about this. Besides, it's my last day here.
>>28295320There's someone there with you.
>>28295320OH GOD TURN AROUND OH GOD OH MAN
>>28295320>Yeah, it was just my arms and neck.Funny, because when I asked in the QTG, you said that there were some >lower bites.
>>28295320how can you not confront them? you're full of bite holes.MM is gonna notice.
>>28295320Whoa, talk about flat and freckled.You should turn around by the way.Also, you should really confront MM about this.
>>28295352There is a QTG with Rena talking in it? Links, man! Links!
>>28295365Actually they seem to have closed up pretty fast. I can't even feel where she bit.>>28295366... I'm gonna ignore that first bit.What do I even say to her? "Hey, stop biting me." I mean... It -sounds- reasonable but the girl scares me.>>28295340>>28295347Hmm? There's no one there.Anyway I don't want to tell Bridgette cause then the two might fight.
>>28295403There WAS.You should talk to MM and see if she can convince MM+ to leave for a few hours, if for no other reason than because then you don't get credit for ESCAPING from MM+.
>>28295403It is not your job to keep the peace between your friend and her sister. It IS your job to ensure that your friend is aware of issues which make you unhappy or uncomfortable, so that she- as a good friend- can do the courteous thing and help make your life better. Keeping quiet about a problem won't ever yield a solution.
>>28295403>Actually they seem to have closed up pretty fast. I can't even feel where she bit.Wait, if she has all the powers of her monster form, does that mean she could have turned us into something else by biting us!?>What do I even say to her? "Hey, stop biting me." I mean... It -sounds- reasonable but the girl scares me.You could try adding "please" at the end of that sentence.>Anyway I don't want to tell Bridgette cause then the two might fight.Come on, what is more important? Sisterly love or your blood?
>>28295403Well, you could always confront her AFTER you leave Bridgette's place, but that might cause more problems in the long run.Maybe ask to talk to her in private for a moment, then tell her to stop biting you. If you don't, next time you might wake up IN YOUR HOME with bite marks because she's become addicted to your blood and messing with you. Or something to that effect.That and she's totally edging in on her sister's plot, which makes it look like she doesn't think Bridgette's capable of doing things herself.
>>28295489take off your trip
>>28295554Please do. It's pretty rude.
>>28295489Remove the trip, asshole. Don't be like EGO.
>>28295489Stop ruining Larro's thread with your self-serving bullshit, Cosgrove.
>Wait, if she has all the powers of her monster form, does that mean she could have turned us into something else by biting us!?Pft. Yeah right. What kind of monster turns something else into a monster by biting it?>Come on, what is more important? Sisterly love or your blood?>>28295489>>28295444...I guess I'll talk to her.>She hears noises coming out of the next room. Rena wraps a towel around herself and pokes her head out."Pst, Bridgette. Can I talk to you?">"Rena? Can you put some clothes on first?""They're out there. Pass me them.">Bridgette tosses her her bag of clothes. Rena gets dressed and steps out.>"What is it?""It's about your sister. I kinda woke up this morning covered in a buncha bites again and I... I don't feel comfortable about that...">"Are you serious? God dammit... CYNTHIA!!! SIS! GET OVER HERE!">She storms out of the room. Rena hears her throwing doors open. After a bit she returns.>"Hmm... She's gone."
>>28295686MM needs to work on getting more sleep, she always looks so tired.
>>28295686>>Pft. Yeah right. What kind of monster turns something else into a monster by biting it?Vampires and zombies.>>"Hmm... She's gone."Lets get some breakfast then. I need a lot of iron.
>>28295686Clothes. Get them on before she comes back.
>>28295686There was a lot of bites Rena, shouldn't you check your blood pressure or something like that?
>>28295841>>28295686we need to eat breakfast, because we lost so much blood.The solution to blood loss is breakfast.
>>28295855>>BreakfastWe should definatly ask for pancakes to compensate.
>>28295686Does she do anything weird with blood, or does she just drink it?Also, this is a bit of a tangent, but has she been known to actually murder anyone for blood?
>>28295855>>28295744Delicious breakfast."It's fine. Just try and talk to her later. Does she actually drink it for like food though?"B: "She said it makes her stronger. Though sometimes I think she does it just to scare people."... I don't want to know if she's killed people like that. It doesn't seem like a pleasant way to go."Hey, can you make me breakfast?"B: "Fine. I think you earned it after surviving two nights with her around.""I want pancakes."B: "Okay.">Bridgette makes the two of them a hearty breakfast complete with a nice stack of pancakes. She goes over Rena's escape plan once again with a better map.B: "You're just going to run down this alleyway and lose me. Got it? It's real simple. There is absolutely no way that we can screw this up. I can get my costume on in a second so I'm ready to do this when you are."
>>28295950Dammit! She used the phrase "There is absolutely no way that we can screw this up." Now you have to change the plan, because it's destined to go wrong!
>>28295950MM+ is missing, and could possibly mess with the plan if she so wished, she knows about it and she's been plenty happy to mess with us. You might want to get recon of the escape route first, make sure that its clear of any surprises.
>>28295950This is about as simple as plans get.
Let's add a smoke pellet to cover our escape when we start. It'll be more convincing.
>>28295950Great, let's get to it. We get to use Shadow Man's smoke bombs now.
>>28295950Is there a more detailed version of this map?Anyway, lets play some video games with MM.
>>28295950be sure to ACCOMPLISH BREAKFAST before you do any crazy plan. And then give yourself a bit to sit around, because who wants to run on a full stomach?Also, MM+ is totally going to be waiting for you in that alley.
"Yeah, let me just rest a bit before we go. Digest this breakfast and maybe recover some blood. Perhaps you should check out the alley or something before we run out? Just in case?"B: "Hmm... Yeah, alright. Wait here. Bat Transformation!">Bridgette transforms into a bat."You're so cute!!!"B: "I am not cute! I am a fearsome vampire bat! Now just sit here and don't touch anything!"---------------------------------------------------------------You are not in control of Bridgette.
>>28296091>You are not in control of Bridgette.>nottypo?Lets scout out the alleyway for heros or siblings.
>>28295950What else is around there? In case it goes wrong, we'll want a backup plan.
>>28296091Oh my goodness. It's such an adorable little bat.
>>28296110Yeah, meant to put 'Now'
>>28296091>You are not in control of Bridgette.>notUm... is this supposed to be "now"?Scan the alley if Bridgette.Clean up the apartment if Rena.
>>28296110You idiots, Larro's obviously breaking new ground here.He meant that Bridgette is wild and free, uncontrollable.
>>28296091Scout for heros, keep an eye out for high rank villains. AND MAKE SURE SISTER IS NOT AROUND.
>>28296091>You are not in control of Bridgette.Reminisce on your sleep over with Rena.
>>28296162She snores a bit. Also she cheats in video games.I know she does.Still it was fun. I don't normally have guests over. I don't even really hang out with the other villains. Also, and this might sound a bit narcissistic, but I love the way she looks when she eats my food.>>28296121I AM NOT ADORABLE.>>28296158>>28296119Let's see...>Bridgette flies around a bit.Oh! There's someone at the alley... That's right where Rena would run...
>>28296209>I AM NOT ADORABLE.You are adorable.>Oh! There's someone at the alley... That's right where Rena would run...Intercept the intruder!
>>28296209I think a change of plans might be in order...Investigate sneakily. Perhaps peer down upon them from above.Hey wait, if you're a vampire bat, can you drink blood?
>>28296209>Also, and this might sound a bit narcissistic, but I love the way she looks when she eats my food.I bet you'd love the way she looks when she's eating something else.
>>28296209Be careful, get some altitude, if the buildings aren't too high up get over them, try getting a view of them from above instead of going directly towards them.
>>28296209sneak up behind her and awkwardly say "sup, so uh, what are you doing here? right where we're planning things that you could easily disrupt."
>>28296209Is that the profile of Cynthia in the corner?Hang upside down above it.
>>28296209Well, let's scout out other potential escape routes, then. No sense sending her into an occupied location.
>>28296229>I bet you'd love the way she looks when she's eating something else.What else?Speaking of which, where is the second part of that damn flatfic?
>>28296209That looks suspiciously like a familiar snake-woman villain.Investigate further from a safe distance.
>>28296209Summon some monster to check it out for you. No use risking yourself for nothing.
>>28295444>friendMM is not our "friend". I'm still feeling my way around the terminology but I'm pretty sure shes our "enemy". Our "best enemy", even.QW would be our "Worst Enemy", even though we feel kind of sorry for her.
>>28296258>What else?Her muffins.
>>28296264Actually, this might be a good idea. You could try summoning a small monster like a spider or cockroach or something and send it to scout out in your stead.
>>28296283Muffins are still food. >>28296261Bah, whats the worst that could happen?
>>28296209>she cheats in videogamesWhat if you just lost fair and square?
>>28296327Impossible.>>28296259>>28296308>>28296229Shut uuuuuuup!>Hey wait, if you're a vampire bat, can you drink blood?Blood is gross.>>28296294>>28296253I can't communicate with anything that small. Most of the monsters that I summon I can only command and hear from them when they speak to me. Unless they're psychic. But sis would notice those too if that's her... I'm gonna have to be sneaky.>Bridgette moves in slowly from behind.It -is- her! What the fuck!? Is she -trying- to ruin my plan!? This is why I hate her! She never lets me do ANYTHING on my own! Look at her, all smug!
>>28296209If it's your sister, what are the odds that she'd kill Rena? Has she killed people before?
>>28296359Confront your sister you adorable little shapeshifting bat.
>>28296359There any other good paths to escape from you place?Because if you're quiet in getting back you should be able to just head back, give Rena a different route, and let your Sister sit there waiting until she realizes what happened.Ruin her plans just like she tried to ruin yours.
>>28296359What exactly are we going to tell her?That she's ruining this hero escape we have planned?
>>28296362Worse, what if she smooches her?
>>28296359Find another alley.Unless MM+ has enhanced senses that'll sniff out an escaping Rena.
>>28296359Bite her tail! That will show her.
>>28296415Yeah, it might be best to find another escape path.Oh! Idea: Perhaps you could take Rena to a another place to put her 'on display' or something, and she could escape there? That way your sister won't be anywhere nearby.
>>28296394This, all the way. Confront her only after your plan is a success.
>>28296359>Shut uuuuuuup!That sure doesn't sound like denial.
>>28296258Part of it was posted in a QTG but no one seemed to read it.
>>28296359Transform into a mongoose
>>28296362She's... She's killed a few heroes before. But only because they fought her to the death!>>28296390... I won't only because you called me adorable.And because I think she'll just tease me until I let her do what she wants.She always does that.I think the best plan is just to switch courses. I'll go tell Rena. She 'should' not be able to detect us so long as we go the opposite direction.>Bridgette goes back to her home. She stops at the window.Oh hell no!She is -not- wearing my costume!IS THAT MY BATON!?
>>28296547Adorable.You gotta admit it's adorable.
>>28296547Screw her, let your sister have her
>>28296547>playing with another girl's batonlewder and lewder
>>28296547She look so adorable in that costume. Snap a picture of her to blackmail her later.
>>28296547Call her on the phone. Your sister doesn't have her number, does she? That way, she'll know that you're the real one.If that doesn't work, summon a tentacle monster to attack her.
>>28296547Put on her costume! That'll show her!
god dammit rena! we stop controlling you for 1 fucking minute and you do this!
>>28296547You've got a painful but nonlethal spell on that baton if someone ither thsn you uses it, right?
>>28296547This calls for serious response.Can you do that thing where you get really, really close behind the hero without them detecting you and then speak in a serious, displeased voice? It'll freak her out a little and show that you mean business without actually being mean.
>>28296547>>28296577Wait, that's Rena, not your sister, right?I stand by my second suggestion.
>>28296547Rena you monster!Try not to get charmed, MM. That baton looks commanding.
>>28296547Girl friends don't let girl friends play with their fun batons.
>>28296577>If that doesn't work, summon a tentacle monster to attack her.We can still summon that tentacle monster from the first time we met right?
>>28296547she's adorable.You're adorable.You are both adorable.
>>28296547Attack her in bat form and get all tangled up in her hair!
>>28296646>Tentacle monsters>Cute girls turning into cute things>Girl wearing clothes she shouldn't (which means she's just GOT to take them all off!)>Ara~ Ara~ is probably watching the entire time.This is getting too hot.
>>28296576If only I had a camera.>>28296659[Hisses internally]>>28296571Tempting...No one touches my costume. AND THEY SURE AS HELL DON'T TOUCH MY BATON!>>28296578Her costume is fucking lame!>>28296589... I will by next time.>>28296591Of course.>Bridgette sneaks in behind Rena. She whispers."Why are you wearing my costume?"R: "AAAAH!">Rena jumps and turns around, dropping both batons on the floor.R: "I-I just want to see if it fits!""..."R: "You got some big hips, did you know that? Hahahah.""..."R: "Hahaha...""..."R: "I'm sorry."
>>28296679"I guess it's easy to call them big when yours are so small."
>>28296679no words.just stare at her
>>28296679Snap your fingers and hold out a hand while glaring. She'd better give you your baton back and strip off that costume, pronto. There are limits to friendship.
>>28296547spy on rena.WHY is she wearing your clothes?
>>28296679Make her remove the costume right now.
>>28296679Bite.Bite her neck.You know you want to.And she deserves it anyways.Delicious nape.
>>28296679Look okay you have to prove to yourself and her that you can wear both costumes way better than she can
>>28296679"I was going to give you an alternate route, since my sister is waiting for you in the current one, but if you're just going to goof off, I'll let you take your chances."
>>28296679how did you even FIND that costume so fast?
>>28296750Don't be a dick. We're not going to put her life at risk over something like this.If anything happens to our rival, it'll be ~our~ doing, and not our sister's.
>>28296824That's why in the process of chewing her out and making us seem mad, I also told her something she needed to know.
>>28296824Doesnt mean we cant threaten too.Villian, remember
>>28296679Give back control so Rena can grovel for mercy>Rena: grovel for mercy. GROVEL HARDER
>>28296736What? No. Why would I want to bite Rena? Why am I even thinking this?I am having way too many lewd thoughts this morning.>>28296737I am the only one who can wear it...>Bridgette stares at Rena for a few more uncomfortable seconds before pressing a button on her watch. Her costume vanishes from Rena leaving her half naked and appears on The Monster Maestro."This fits me a lot better, sorry. Now, I was going to give you an alternate route, since my sister is waiting for you in the current one, but if you're just going to goof off, I'll let you take your chances."R: "Please don't...""Then go get dressed, we have a lot to discuss. And if I ever catching you touching my costume again..."R: "Okay...">Rena runs off....At least she has a decent butt.----------------------------------------------------------<You are now controlling Rena once more.>MM: "We'll just be going the opposite way, got it? Run down -this- way. Got it? It's possibly even simpler.""Got it."I feel good enough to do this. Are we all done here?
>>28296847I guess Bridgette can graciously relent if Rena apologizes well enough.>Rena doing tearful panicky spaghetti apologizing while tugging/hugging Bridgette's pant legs
>>28296889Just comment that you noticed MM checking out your butt, then we're done.
>>28296889>I feel good enough to do this. Are we all done here?Lets grab something to eat on the go first.
>>28296889Flee in terror, Rena.I don't even think you need to fake it.Don't stop until you get home.And don't forget Kitty.
>>28296889Haha we got to wear the costumeI think we're done. All except for MM+ jumping us anyway, since she followed the bat back.
>>28296889>At least she has a decent butt.
>>28296889>Are we all done here?Yeah. Hero transform, take inventory of stuff, then move out.
>>28296889"I'm going to be running with Kitty, so even though we have to make this look real, try not to send anything too huge my way, alright? Oh, and for the record, you wear the thigh highs a lot better than I do."
>>28296919yes. Flee with cat. And pokeyman.
>>28296889It was totally worth it, wasn't it Rena?It is an Awesome costume.
>>28296889You gotta let MM know you noticed all those appreciative glances before you leave Rena.
>>28296889Scout again. MM+ probably moved.
>>28296987yeah, we were pathetic in those things.
""I'm going to be running with Kitty, so even though we have to make this look real, try not to send anything too huge my way, alright?"MM: "Of course. I probably won't see you for a bit so... Seeya.""Bye, Bridgette. Even though I was kidnapped I had a nice time."MM: "... Yeah. Alright, let's get going. Oh, and you'd better practice your cooking when you're home.""I will!"------------------------------------------------------------->Rena manages to escape safely. There are a few fireballs that are a bit too close for comfort... She gets the feeling that Monster Maestro is still a bit upset.>She stumbles a few times as she runs, feeling a bit dizzy.>She hides in an alleyway, panting and shuddering a bit.Geeze... I feel exhausted...I only ran like one block.>>28296910>>28297002Why would she be looking at my butt? It's just a butt. Everyone has a butt.Ah, there goes the monster.I think I'm safe.
>>28297013It would have been adorable if it weren't so sad.
>>28297168Oh crap, we don't have enough arms to hold Kitty AND throw rock AND use mace.LEG IT!
>>28297168Look behind the corner.That tentacle monster looks way too happy.
>>28297168Is anyone else in this alleyway with you?
>>28297168You're tired because you have NO BLOOD. It doesn't grow back overnight, you know.Also, you'd better have traded friend codes with her.
>>28297168Dammit Rena now's not the time to be asexual AND oblivious.
>>28297168run away~preferably back to your apartmentwait shit that's destroyedhero association? maybe they could let you stay until living arrangements have been made
>>28297168Run and report back to Hero HQ. Surprise Sparkle and Chet with take-out.Unless this monster still has business with you?
>>28297168She was looking at your butt because she finds it attractive. Kinda like how you're drawn to how her costume frames her face, and her face frames her eyes.Speaking of things framing things, the corner of the alley is currently framing a tentacle monster. Call Sparkle and ask for a ride to Hero HQ.
>>28297168Report freedom, and perhaps request assistance, if you don't think you can make it home from here.You lost a lot of blood, after all.
>>28297168Rena no what if that is really MM+ Continue to get the fuck out of Dodge while you still have blood inside of you
>>28297168Aww, no action shots?
I think I can make it to the Hero Association from here... Should be fine.>Rena waits until the monster leaves before making a mad dash to the Hero Association. She bursts in and when she does the Heroes there pause and then applaud. A few of them bring her some drinks and she collapses onto a chair.>She sees them taking down a poster showing she was missing.Huh... I guess they really were worried about me.>As Rena relaxes and drinks delicious coffee Anti-Hero appears.AH: "Rena! Hey, congrats!""Thanks."AH: "You really are in the big leagues now.""Huh?"AH: "??? You don't know?">She holds up a piece of paper.AH: "A-Class Rank 25! Congrats, ladybro!"
>>28297353Of course that happened.>Pout.
>>28297353Rena's power has been discovered.She has a profound ability to advance in the Hero's association with only a minimum of effort.
>>28297353Did... did you do something to make the boss robot angry, Rena?
>>28297353>WHAT THE FUCK WHY
>>28297353...what?How did we get promoted while being kidnapped by a c class villain?
>>28297353How the hell did that happen?
Goddamn it I knew itFucking MM+ ruined everything by virtue of being there to beef up the danger level
>>28297391>>28297394>>28297400>>28297401>>28297402>>28297403>And then we discover she made the A-list because MM+ was recently found dead near her location.
>>28297353wail a wail of true sorrow to the heavens, while dropping to your knees.
>>28297353Okay, something is seriously wrong with the ranking system. The only way to solve this is to complain to the higher-ups.
>>28297353I kind of feel bad for all those heroes who spend their time actually protecting people. We get overpromoted for throwing rocks and hanging out with people.
>>28297443B-but she can't die now! It's Naga/Lamia Week!
>>28297488Yeah, we should talk to Chett about this.
>>28297501>>28297443Wait a fucking second... When Bridgette saw MM+, was she moving?
>>28297353"I was kidnapped and had to clean a villian's lair for a few days, was repeatedly bitten by MM+ because she wanted to drink my blood, and the only reason I was able to escape is because MM+ LEFT her sister's lair to go do something else.I'm tired, sore, terrified, and more than a little humiliated. HOW IS THAT IN ANY WAY A VICTORY?I was already out of my league, and now they're jacking the price on my head UP? FUCK! At this rate I'll have to defect just to SURVIVE!"
>>28297353THIS IS NOT HAPPY TIME ANTI HERONOT HAPPY
"WHY!?"AH: "Well you should know! You broke out!""But... But Monster Maestro is only a C-Class!"AH: "Well, yeah. But then you beat the shit out of Monster Master!""What!?"AH: "Yeah! They found her all messed up with a note on her. It had your thumbprint on it. In blood. That's such a hardcore way to sign something."
>>28297529She turns in between the panels we are given. And I think MM would notice if she were dead.
>>28297504And how about Shadow Man? He's an information specialist, so maybe he knows something about the higher ups/the way the system works.>>28297529>>28297541AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>28297531Every party needs a pooper that's why they invited you.Party pooper, party pooper...
>>28297541But it wasn't us.
>>28297541Sh-she knows we didn't beat the snot out of her, maybe she can appeal against this?
>>28297541"What the- I haven't seen Monster Master all day!"
>>28297541We've been framed! Perhaps even by MM+! She wants our sweet butt all to herself!
>>28297541SHE DID THIS!We've been set up!
>>28297541.......................CYNTHIA.YOU DID THIS.WHYYYYYYYYYY
>>28297541Oh, damn you MM+ you clever monstergirl.We need to find a new way to drop our ranking.Maybe getting beat up my a D rank villain would suffice.
>>28297541Refuse to take credit for thisDo not back down
>>28297541So *that's* why MM+ wanted all our blood.She was making a Rena-Homonculus!
>>28297541"Are you kidding me? Monster Master spent the past two days making me her personal juice box! There's no way I could beat her up!"
"What the- I haven't seen Monster Master all day!"AH: "Seriously? But after she was sent to jail she even admitted it. Almost instantly, actually. Said your powers were just too great for her."Why would she lie about this!?
>>28297541"That BITCH! So that's why she knocked me out and bled me!No, I ran the fuck away from her. I found out what direction she left in and ran the OTHER WAY.Regardless, it's a bad frame job. I can't leave a note in blood anyway; It's too ABNORMAL."
>>28297541If we call MM+ and surrender, will that lower our rank?I mean, at this point, Super Instant Death Man is going to notice us, so giving her all our blood wouldn't be so bad in comparison.
>>28297614she is a very special kind of evil and is specifically targetting me to make my life hell by raising me in the ranks artificiallyshe's basically suicide bombing me
>>28297614"She seeks to gain vengeance on me by framing me for beating her up. This means I'll be rank A and people will try to kill me.
>>28297614She is trying to get me killed!Lets talk to Sparkle and chet about this.
>>28297614Don't you see the master plan?Guys, guys, this might be a "good" thing.MM let herself get beat the fuck up so Rena advances in rank.When Rena advances in rank, that means any villain who defeats her will get an even bigger jump than if she was, say, C-class.Rena owes Bridgette some favors.Bridgette will want to defeat Rena in a flashy, open battle and thus advance up the Villain ranks.
>>28297614"Well, I did lose a lot of blood when I was being held captive. Maybe someone, uh, made a more badass clone of me or something? Do people do that?"
>>28297541Guys, what if MM+ did this to make MM look like more of a badass for kidnapping us in the first place? Let's just roll with it for now.
>>28297614She's trying to force our hand and make us go villain!That said, we probably got a big chunk of change for "defeating" her. Can we retire yet?
>>28297614Obviously because she is trying to fuck your hero career over so you'll give in and join the villains like she wanted
>>28297614"Oh, I can answer that. She's a siscon.She has unhealthy desires for her sister, and she thinks I'm getting between them because she's straight-up legit crazy.She's doing this so my rank will go up and somebody else will kill me without raising her threat level."
>>28297614Bridgette needs to know about this. We've got to tell her that someone was impersonating us to attack her sister.
>>28297614Go to the jail MM+ is at."WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK CYNTHIA"
Oh god.I'm laughing so hard right now.This is great.
>>28297614We need to go to jail and ask Cynthia what she;s planning.
>Rena begins shouting that she was framed and that she didn't really beat her and that she should not be this high of a rank and sisterly love and that she hates everything.AH: "Woah, woah, woah. Back up. I'm not following you. If you've seriously got a problem with this you might wanna talk to Big Boss. He's the one in charge of the ranking system. I warn you though, he's pretty... Intense when it comes to the rankings."Ugh... Why, Cynthia? Was it to help your sister? To screw with me? Both?Right now I can either go see the Big Boss, talk to Cynthia, or go talk to Bridgette.
>>28297614ugh we have to visit MM+ and angrily confront her.Surely the jail bars will keep us safe.
>>28297764Go talk to cynthia. She tends to be honest with us, so let's find out her reasons first.
>>28297764Well, first, thank Anti-Hero for letting us know and giving us her advice. She's been pretty good about this whole thing.Let's go see Cynthia first. The boss can wait a bit.
>>28297764Definitely talk to Cynthia firstdemand answersdepending on these answers follow up visit to big boss
>>28297764None of them!Go to Deviant Artist's jail cell.Re-enact that office scene in Fight Club.
>>28297764When we go see Cynthia, bring a hidden recording device so that we can use whatever she says as evidence when we later show that we're framed.
>>28297764Go talk to big boss.He's our best bet yet.
>>28297764>The Boss can be pretty intense about the rankingsWell, given that we just tried to game them, let's not talk to him. At all.Thank Anti-hero and see Cynthia, i guess.
>>28297764"First, I'm getting some answers."Go talk to Bridgette to to find out how much she ranked up, and explain what her sister did.Cyn's motive is pretty clear - Make Rena defect or get her killed. She's the classic yandere siscon. Talking to her is only going to waste time.
>>28297821Oh, oh, and bring goodwill cakes for those dudes we threw rocks at.
>>28297764go to Big Boss, but call MGS for help first
>>28297821not necessarily. Cynthia was the reason we sprung up in early ranks as well, so if it all gets out it would end up being her fault anyway.
>>28297814omg yes this
>>28297764Go see the Big Boss.
>>28297764SighThank Anti-Hero for her concern. Hug her even.Then go find Cynthia
>>28297861Drag antiHero with you, Rena. Don't let go of her.
>>28297168Rena is a poor girl from the boonies who was too dumb to get into college and thus missed out on the frenzied sexual experimentation phase of her life.She LITERALLY doesnt know what the word lesbian means
>>28297876If we bring anybody else with us to see MM+ she is just going to keep the facade up. We need to be alone so she can be smug at us.
"I think I'm going to have a talk with Cynthia first. Thanks Anti-Hero."AH: "No prob, ladybro. Hope everything gets fixed."...----------------------------------------------------------->Rena arrives at the Hero Prison with a tape recorder hidden in her sweater. As she walks to the entrance the wall suddenly crumbles and the Monster Master slithers out, two massive clawed arms in place of her normal ones.MM+: "Rena~ I didn't expect to see you so soon."
>>28297941WHAT THE FUCKING FUCKGOD DAMNITYOU RUIN EVERYHINGGGG
>>28297941Run to her.Hold her shoulders.Shake her and go WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHY
>>28297941WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO US??WHY???
>>28297941what monster is that?
>>28297941whyyyyyyyyyWasn't my blood enough for you?
>>28297941YOOOOOOUUUU!!I'LL REMEMBER THAT
>>28297941WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO MEEE?
>>28297941"Why did you do it, Monster Master? Why did you claim I beat you when I wasn't anywhere nearby?"Work that tape recorder, and hope like hell she doesn't find it.
>>28297959I must agree; WHAT THE FUCK, WOMAN?
>>28297941"WHY DID YOU FRAME ME FOR BEATING YOU?"
>>28297941Are you a hydralisk?No, wait, more important things. One, i'm off-duty, because I HAVE NO BLOOD.Two, WHYYYYYYYY?!
>>28297941Why do you go out of your way to torment me like this?
>>28297988>>28297999lets not be obvious about it guysemotional will work
>>28297971A big fucked-up coala?
>>28297941Why do you continue to attempt to ruin my lifeWhy are your hands covered in bloodWhat even are you right now
>>28297982"...you're about to frame me again aren't you?"
>>28297959this is basically our responsePOSSIBLY getting woozy from blood loss and falling over in the middle
"WHY DID YOU FRAME ME FOR BEATING YOU? WHYYYYYYY!?"MM+: "How are you feeling right now? A bit woozy? Dizzy?""I'm Rank A! You know I didn't fight you!"MM+: "Is the sun a bit too strong?""Why aren't you answering me!?"MM+: "Ara ara~""THAT ISN'T EVEN A WORD!"
How come AH wasn't surprised that we know MM+ by name?
>>28298030Koala? No, drop bears are terrifying at their normal size. Being larger would make them LESS scary.
>>28298066Shake her like an ugly baby!
>>28298066>MM+: "Is the sun a bit too strong?"Wait...what? Did she...did she make us a vampire!?
>>28298066Damnit I told you to stop taking my blood!Of course I'm woozy! You have all my blood!
>>28298066shake and/or throttle herrage knows no fear
>>28298066What is this, a doombot? It's not responding intelligently.
>>28298066I don't WANNA be a rank A!I don't wanna be a vampire!I don't wanna be a rank A vampire!
She's trying to find out if we became a vampire overnight.
OH GOD THE WOUNDS HEALED BECAUSE WE'RE A VAAAAMMMMMPPPPPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRREEEEEEENow we'll need to take lessons from AH on how to be an edgy good guy. Thanks a fuckin' lot, MM+...
>>28298066"Why did you do this to me? You know I'll never be able to survive at A-rank."
>>28298066What do you want from me, I just want to have a home for my cat and not diiiiiiiiiiieeeeeee
>>28298066Channel our inner saitamaPunch her so hard she lands on the moon
>>28298066I just wanted to have a home and food and my cat and be friends with Bridgette and now I'm going to diiiiiiiiiiie *cue crying*
>>28298104or worse...she's trying to make us a villain.
>>28298066Aw fuck. AW FUCK.
>>28298066"Hey! Albinos aren't monsters! And that's not infectious!"
>>28298112>implying you need to be edgy to be a vampire
>>28298066Rena you don't have to deal with this bullshit just turn around and go home and quitYou can still be buddies with Cynthia and you should have plenty of cash to live on while you figure out what to do with your life instead of dealing with this three ring circus of a mockery of justice
>>28298156I think that stopped being an option when MM+ decided to turn her into a FUCKING VAMPIRE.Now it's daily trips to the blood bank and pitchfork/torch mobs.
>>28298086>>28298104>>28298105>>28298112Lol vampire guessesimplying she hasn't guessed we have a tape recorder or something
>>28298156>CynthiaI mean BridgettePardon my brain problems
>>28298170such assumptionmuch silliness
>>28298171>>28298205I can't think of any other way to explain those bitemarks healing.
>>28298205>implying it's not wishful thinking
>>28298236no seriously we have to prevent this vampirism from setting inLet's go eat some raw garlic cloves
>>28298259The only cure for vampirism is p/u/re love. We need to find Bridgette, stat.
>>28298259But why? We can be stronk and WRY and such. I mean, if sun didn't kill us instantly we're safe... I hope
>>28298273that's a lie and you know it!
>>28298287the sun INSTANTLY KILLS US!And we don't get LASAGNA!Vampirism is 0/10
>>28298226Oh, that's easy: If there weren't actually any marks there in the first place. Just drip some blood and it'll LOOK like there was a wound that magically healed.This was clearly planned in advance, and we know she took Rena's blood from the FIRST bite. She's doing a LOT of deception here, so don't assume the evidence we have is real.
"Why did you do this to me!? You know I'll never be able to survive at A-rank!"MM+: "But you will little Rena, at least for a little while~ I made sure of that~""What do you mean!?"MM+: "I decided to give you a bit of power during your stay. I really had to make sure I didn't give you too much or your body would fail... Just a bit at a time~""What!? What are you talking about you crazy monstergirl!?"MM+: "I wanted you to be stronger. So you can be a real fighter. And an even better companion for my dear sister. She's so lonely, always fighting by herself. I wanted to give her someone strong to fight with. I'm sure you'll be kicked out of the Heroes once they find out about... If you don't quit willingly from the pressure of being A-Class.""Find out about what?"MM+ "I may have bitten you while transformed into a vampire, only a little bit~""... I'm a vampire!?"MM+: "Not fully... Not yet. I would need a few more chomps to do that. And since you've already brought yourself here...">She smiles.
>>28298259We didnt get it.Remember MGSs buff? Neither does Rena but dollars to donut it "saved" our asses.Because being magical girl is suffering.
>>28298066"Don't avoid the issue! Are you trying to get me killed? Are you mad at me for hanging out with your sister? What's going on!">>28298155Arc also didn't need blood to live, was just fine in the sun, and was never human to begin with.
>>28298323flee. Acquire garlic.
>>28298323MM+ plspls no>Implying there's a choice
>>28298323"Wait, why would they kick me if they know I'm a vamp? I don't see the connection, explain your logic"
>>28298323oh fuck oh fuck oh fuckRUN!
I think its time to call MGS. And maybe get her opinion on curing vampirism.
>>28298323BITE HER BACK!
>>28298323Oh god she opened her eyeIt's all over
Magic girl tittysprinkles, we need you
>>28298323Time to pocket sand and leg it. Then talk to MGS about vampirism and MM about her crazy sister.
>>28298323Flee like the dickens.
>>28298323RUN FROM THE ARA ARA~ WE CAN'T SURVIVE
>>28298378well, her eyes /are/ open now...
>>28298323RUNRUNRU-WAIT.IF SHE DEFEATS RENA HERE.DOES SHE DROP FROM A RANK?
>>28298323What makes you think I would sign up with the villains and put myself in a position to deal with even more of your bullshit
>>28298378>>28298323use pocket sand, flee while screaming in terror.
>>28298323You've got a communication link with other heroes. Call for help.
>>28298323run and get to MGS then call MM and tell her what her sister did
>>28298323Ohfuckohfuckohfuck.One of her eyelids is OPEN.... FINALLY! Our pepper spray can work with this. R-right? Hope we filled it up with holy water...
I mean, is MM+ A rank? If so, can't we throw a fight here (and by "throw" I mean "survive") and get deranked?
>>28298398Interesting point.Plus, what with Antihero having a demon trapped in her eye, I'm pretty sure the hero association doesn't give much of a damn about where your power comes from.
>>28298323Slap her across the face.
>>28298323"If you do that to me, I'll do it to your sister!"
>>28298424I think we'll get reinforcements if we stay and fight
>>28298323Bitch u crazy
>>28298424WAIT, RUNNING AWAY COUNTS AS LOSING
>>28298434Shes Best Enemy, we can't do that!
>>28298323Call bullshit. (Run anyway.)
Oh god this is so kinky I can barely contain the tingles.
>>28298434O wow o wowyeah lets go ahead and threaten the sister she's fucking crazy aboutmaybe there'll be enough left of us for a DNA test to confirm the corpsebut probably not
>>28298457But if she hears us say it, she might hesitate.
>Rena runs. Rena runs so hard.>She can hear Monster Master chasing her but she does not turn to look. She knows if she looks it will be over. She just keeps running until her legs are sore.>She runs into an alleyway. Once there she feels a bit stronger and she is able to sprint. As she runs she calls for Magical Girl Sparkle.>She hers 'Ara ara' from behind and then.MGS: "It's time to get magical! MAGICAL BLAST!">There is the sound of destruction. Rena is tossed and her head hits solid ground. She is knocked out
Thinking a bit, I think Monster Maestro is the only person that can help us right now.
>>28298470I think she'd just kill us on the spot
You know, Rena, being a vampire won't be so bad. You can stay up all night and live forever and get all the ladies.And, let's be honest here, did you really go outside that much before anyway?
>>28298475IT'S TIME TO GET MOTHERFUCKING MAGICAL!FUCK YEAHMGS SO SWOLE
>>28298323Start laughing.Then snerk.Then laugh harder."You think that matters? AH has a Demon IN HER BRAIN telling her what to do, and they haven't kicked her out. You think a vampire curse is going to change anything?But no, you don't get it, do you? How things work between Bridgette and I?Hero, Villian, it doesn't matter to me, but as long as I'm her nemesis other heroes aren't going to go after her.Do you know WHY I registered her as my nemesis? Because Anti-Hero planned to KILL HER.You're putting her in MORE DANGER like this!"
>>28298480Sleeping during the day sucks and most stores are closed at night.
>>28298424At this point I would not be surprised if surviving at all jumps us to Super Duper Secret Turbo Rank SSS++ and gets us booted out into space to deal with Galactus analogues.
>>28298496man if we were conscious this would be a good thing to say
I really want Cynthia to know that she really ISN'T HELPING. Not Rena & not Bridgette
>>28298511We should just assume fetal position and hide under a pile of coatsI mean, it hides from the sunlight as well
>>28298509>Sleeping during the day sucksLies. Lies and slander. Nocturnal master race > diurnal scum.
>>28298538I dunno about you but I feel like shit after a daytime nap
>>28298475>It's time to get magical!The fact that she has enough PTSD to kill a man only makes this sexier for some reason
>>28298475I guess we just wait to regain consciousness?Or we could get to kick MM+ ass as MGS
>When Rena wakes up she hears a voice...MGS: "Why is it that every time I see you it's because you fucked up again? You are just a never ending ride of bad luck and fuck ups. That should be your know Hero name, The Fuck Up. I swear, it just keeps happening with you."
>>28298565Grab and hug.Try not to cry.Cry.
>>28298565"Ugh, fuck off with you, I'm having a rough day as it is"
>>28298565I try.I should be the trieror the queen of bad luck and crazy sistersdid u beat her up 4 me?
>>28298565Fiddle with your transformer thingy until you get an F on your shirt.
>>28298565I didn't ask for this.
>>28298565... To be honest, it probably should
>>28298565IIII KNOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWW[sobbing intensifies]
>>28298475wait a sec, Monster Maestro was here in the corner!>>28298565S-S-S-Sorry.I just learned that I am becoming a vampire.
>>28298565I didn't fuck up! A vampire bit me!I got fucked up!
>>28298577o yea lets be rude to our only friend in heros who isn't weird or crazyfuck off man, I bet you were the one who wanted to threaten Bridgette as well
>>28298577naw, we're friends with her
>>28298565"...thanks. For putting up with me. It keeps happening, and you're always the one good enough to bail me out."
>>28298565"I don't know why. I seriously think fate hates me. Do you think I wanted a crazy snake girl to turn me into a vampire and make me an A rank hero?"
>>28298565Bawl your eyes on how much a failure you are.
>>28298565Because I fuck up so frequently we dont have any tIme for social visits inbetween.Though to be fair, this wasn't entirely my fault.Fucking Cynthia
>>28298565It gets worse, MGS.Ask how to cure vamprism
>>28298565By the way, Sparkle is adorable too.
>>28298565Okay I'm terrible whateverplease just tell me my rank went down because of thisplease
>>28298565"It's true! I tried my hardest to stop it but my rank keeps going up!How do I not die?"Also: Call Bridgette and tell her to tell MM+ that you're nemesii because heroes don't go after each other's nemesii, so you being a hero keeps her safer. That might get MM+ to stop trying to kill or corrupt you.
>>28298595Uh, no, but we're really are having a rough streak and now she stays there and badmouths us. I mean it's not like it's our faultBesides we -are- friends with her, so we can tell her to fuck off and not ruin everything. It's not like she'll comply
>>28298581Give after changing it to an E. We can't even succeed at showing how much we suck.
H-H-H-Hold on a sec.If we become a monster and Monster Maestro has the power to control weak monsters, does that mean that MM will be able to...you know...
>>28298627"Seriously, she's been directly and indirectly responsible for every ridiculous rank leap.Bane of my fucking life.I'd arch her if she didn't fucking terrify me."
>>28298565Sniffle and say, "I think I must have really pissed someone off that day I bought frozen lasagna."
>>28298689yeah, really.We fucked -something- up while buying that lasagna.
>>28298712But it was a flash sale!
>>28298670......We need to find MM+ and let her bite us
>>28298712Well we -could- run from that monster till fuckup rangers showed up, then none of this would've happened
>>28298726Doesn't the vampire that turn you usually have control over you, too? Do we really want MM+ to have control over us?Who am I kidding, of course we do.
"I KNOOOOOOOOWWW!">Rena starts crying again.>Magical Girl Sparkle holds onto the poor girl until she calms down. When she finally does she begins to explain just what the hell happened to her.MGS: "I heard the tape, there's no need. Look, what you do as a Hero is your own thing. I'm not going to mess with that. And personally, I don't care that you're some kind of vampire thing. But I know others would... So, if you want to change back you have two options. Option 1: Kill the Monster Master. That one just isn't going to happen. Option 2 is perhaps the more difficult one though...""What is it..?"MGS: "The least violent way to change back is through the most powerful and magical force in the universe...""Love?"MGS: "No, atomic energy. Of course it's love! The only other way to cure this half vampire state is to find someone you care for and then... Kiss them."
>>28298670Of course.Though ironically Bridgette doesn't want Rena as a villian/minion any more than Rena wants her to be a hero/sidekick.Bridgette is clearly way too into the villian thing.Bridgette got a good arch when she picked Rena. Have you any idea how difficult it is to get an arch who'll let you be who you want to be and who you can trust not to murder you except in exceptional circumstances?And Cynthia is fucking it up for both of them. Though admittedly its probably because Bridgette went crying to her.
>>28298787But I have no friends!
>>28298787blush.Blush like you're holding hands.
>>28298787who do we lovehmmmmmkitty?lets try kissing kitty
>>28298787Oh you're just fucking with us now Rena.We could kiss kitty.
>>28298787I'm not entirely sure what I feel
>>28298787What's the second-least violent way?
>>28298787Welp. Bridgette and Kitty seem to be the only options I can think of.
>>28298787Kiss MGS immediately. That should work, right?
>>28298787The /u/boat has officially arrivedAlso why would anyone care about us being a vampire? I seriously don't get it. Isn't it racist?
>>28298787...This isn't a joke, is it? We've been jerked around enough for one lifetime.
>>28298787"Oh. Guess I should ask Bridgette out, then."
>>28298787Uhhh... This is serious, right?
>>28298787I am cool with being a vampire
>>28298787IT IS TIME TO GO OUT FOR COFFEE WITH SHADOW MAN
>>28298787Ask how long we have to find that kiss. We only have like two friends if Sparkle-fairy counts. Both of them are chicks and Rena knows that is forbidden love.
>>28298787Stand there quietly for a moment."Welp, I guess i should go buy a sun umbrella or something."
Well if everything else fails, we can ask Queen of Za Warudo to charm us again and make us kiss her. That's surely a way. While having MGS as back up, of course
>>28298829Nope.We must accelerate our dating plan with Shadow Man
>>28298820>I seriously don't get it. Isn't it racist?Vampires drink blood from living people who would rather keep their blood.>>28298829We could also try kissing sparkle now.
>>28298787I think I would have preferred atomic energy.
>>28295320>Rena hops into the shower. She washes off and inspects her wounds. They all seem to have healed completely and none have even left a mark.This plus this >>28298323Fast healing is our new power.>>28298787We need to visit Bridgette again.
>>28298787Rena cares deeply for herself, right?>Kiss your own hand.
>>28298787MGS please I have had an amazingly shitty day I don't need you yanking my chain as wellW-what kind of kiss, anyhow? Like a peck on the cheek?
>>28298787Go find Bridgette. She's the only thing close to that at the moment.
>>28298787Someone I love huh.Guess I'm part vampire now.
>>28298847Rena doesnt even understand the concept of lesbisnism....But she could be an enthusiastic convert
>Rena jumps in and tries to kiss Magical Girl Sparkle.>=SLAP=MGS: "What the fuck Rena!? I WAS KIDDING! How the hell would a fucking kiss cure ANYTHING! If you want a cure just wait til the Doctor comes back from his trip!"
>>28298787go kiss your pussy
>>28298787"Could you close your eyes and hold still for a minute?">yQueer meansOh, captcha
>>28298889NO, YOU RUINED MY DREAMS MGSNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>28298851We can use blood banksAlthough it's the only way. Drinking blood from a living creature would require us to kill it, lest it becomes a vampire
>>28298889Apologise. Say you panicked.
>>28298889So I suppose that means I shouldn't try kissing my cat next?I don't have a very long list of people to kiss
>>28298889Then stop stringing Rena along with jokes like that! Of course she'll take it seriously.
>>28298889That was worth a shot.Lets go wait for the doctor patiently in a dark place.
>>28298889"Sorry i was scared and I don't have any friends and I don't want to be a vampire.
>>28298889Well excuuuse me! If you wanted to make this a joke you should've worded it better
>>28298889"Oh. Sorry, I just figured, you know, magic was your thing and all, so... Uh, what do I do until then? Like, stay inside all day and drink tomato juice?"
>>28298889I am not a smart girl we have established this
>>28298908yeah, just too much.
>>28298889"YOU ARE A MAGICAL GIRL! CURSES ARE MAGIC! WHY WOULD I DOUBT YOU?"
>>28298889Well, for now, how about we get to work. Go back and look at some wanted listings.
>>28298889Sorry, I panicked. Am panicking.The panic isn't ending!
>>28298926Honestly the best answer.
>>28298889That was in poor taste. We've had an egregious and we don't appreciate jokes like that.Especially when it comes to magic and superpowers. What if we're up against a villain with some ridiculous-seeming power and we assume that it's just a joke?
>>28298889that wasn't very niceI just came to from a head impactgive me some leeway
>>28298889"I'm sorry! I just really really really don't want to become a vampire and I'm really really scared that people will start to hate me because of some shit that I didn't even fucking do or want!"And start crying.(This could be shit, but meh, I tried)
...At least that wasn't my first kiss."Oh. Sorry, I just figured, you know, magic was your thing and all, so... Uh, what do I do until then? Like, stay inside all day and drink tomato juice?"MGS: "Just go about your every day business and don't let that bitch bite you again. If you get worse there -is- no cure. The Doctor should be here in two days. Can you last until then?""I think so."MGS: "I'm also going to speak to Big Boss about your rank and see if we can get you lowered. Until then enjoy your super healing, strength, and speed. Now, I need to hunt Monster Bitch down.. She turned into a bat and left before I could beat her.">Magical Girl Sparkle walks off."Hey, don't kill her..."MGS: "... I won't.">She leaves.>Rena is by herself.
>>28299006Go to Hero HQ and hide in a dark place.
>>28299006>Until then enjoy your super healing, strength, and speed.I think it might not be that bad of an idea to just keep it.
>>28299006try not to panic because MM+ IS BEHIND YOU
>>28299006COVER yourself in garlic.
>>28299006Time to find some temprary lodging for the next two days.Shadow Man's place might be the right ticket. No light, natural or otherwise...
>>28299021aka visit shadow man againdepress self by asking who else has you as a target now
>>28299006Test your new super powers.
>>28299006Find Kitty. Attack any creatures that approach you with Kitty as a backup
>>28299028Don't do this. You'll only make yourself look more delicious.More importantly, where's your cat?
>>28299006Just, fuck everythingLet's go home and eat some ice cream
>>28299006Some nomaly please.BUY DINNER. AND FOOD FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS.Hide at home with Kitt-Wait.Wheres Kitty.
>>28299044WE ARE NOT ENDANGERING KITTY YOU STUPID FUCK.
>>28299049With our luck, we'll meet a villain who want to prove himself at the ice cream shop and end showing everyone how strong we are.Lets hide somewhere.
>>28299006Make a date in the next week to go and see MGS for a 'nothing at all is terrible and we're meeting' occasion.
>>28299006>At least that wasn't my first kissDid I miss something or is it just some background fact?
>>28299067oh, hang on. Vampire Powers have a whole bunch of obvious weaknesses.Could we exploit them to lower our ranking?
>>28299006Call Bridgette and tell her what happened. Maybe she can explain to her sister that you're keeping her SAFE by being her nemesis, and you're not gonna let your day job get in the way of friendship.Ask her out for coffee.
>>28299006Lay low for two days. Preferably at Hero HQ. Do not give Monster Master another shot at you.
>>28299090We weren't able to lower our ranking without any power at all.
>super strength and super speed thanks to vampirism>upgraded punch and running speed due to Velociraptor's gadgetsAm I the only one who thinks we're pretty top-tier now?
>>28299055>>28299049That sounds good..>Rena grabs her kitty from the Hero Association, buys a ton of food and ice cream, and goes home. The place is a bit destroyed but well enough for her to sleep in.I think I'm just gonna keep eating this until I'm fat and diabetic. I don't want to leave my house anymore. Everything bad happens when I leave my house.
>>28299120NO RENA, YOU'LL BECOME FAT
>>28299120Whats that under the door.WHATS THAT UNDER THE DOOR.
>>28299120Check the doors and windows!
>>28299120Ohgod what's thatI bet it's MM+ againIt's always MM+
>>28299120There's a note under your door.Also: Your apartment isn't safe. Stay at Hero HQ until you get treated, or bunk with AH.
>>28299120Don't worry Rena, Vampires can't get fat.
>>28299120It looks like someone stuffed a letter or a note or something under your door.Should probably read that.
>>28299120Maybe you should get some better locks on your door, or jam a chair under it. Just to be safe.
>>28299120just read a book.
>>28299120You have a letter.
>>28299120Noo, we already have a NEET questAlso check under the door
>>28299116yes, but we didn't have any weaknesses.Now all we need to do is visit a shop with a lot of garlic and boom, instant defeat. Or cross running water. Or turn up at MM's lair and not get invited in.This could be a serious boon!
>>28299120Nothing good can come of that thing, throw it awayDon't even look at it, just go back to ice cream and catching them all
>>28299120If it's another Hero rank-up, tear the damn paper to pieces.
>>28299172To be honest, we're gonna get pretty fat checks... just sayin'
It's kind of funny how much of this quest is "Rena, look at that thing in the image!"
>>28299120survived another encounter with mm+helped MGS drive MM+ awaylittle slip of paper says we're s-rank now
>>28299205Well it's also cute drawings and cute suffering
>>28299207Hopefully we at least get paid.
I can't just ignore it. It could be something important.>Rena grabs the letter and opens it. The first thing that comes out is something that makes Rena's heart stop...>A check for $100,000.>The second one is an even bigger shock... A letter from Magical Girl Sparkle.>It reads 'Dear, Mrs. Fuck-Up. I've spoken to the Big Boss from you. I hope you know I was dropped down 1 rank for disturbing him but I think it's worth it to ensure your safety. You have been dropped down to C-Class Rank 50. It's not much but I hope it helps. Don't give up.>Signed, Magical Girl Sparkle.'
>>28299120Is there someone who could tell us the full effects of vampirism? Like VRaptor? I'd like to make an informed decision about this.On another note, we might want to call Bridgette and work out a scheme to distract her sister. Maybe if she pretends to try and do some evil scheme on her own, her sister will be too distracted with meddling to finish converting us.
>>28299225Send Sparkle a thank you letter...written in vampire blood!
>>28299225>dropped down 1 rank for disturbing himYou know what must be done
>>28299225Maybe we can send her some of the cash? Like as an apology, payment for being our "lawyer" in a way (couldn't think of a better word) and a thank you.
>>28299225We... we should buy stocks and bonds...
>>28299225OH GODTHANK HERYOU OWE SO MUCH
>>28299225MGS YOU'RE THE BEST>I hope you know I was dropped down 1 rank for disturbing himWell you should know that ranks don't mean shit by now
>>28299225check the doohickey.We must be sure that this is a thing and not some cruel hoax
>>28299225poor sparkle!She didn't need her rank lowered for us!
>>28299225Sparkle is the bestest.We need to bu- NO. COOK HER DINNER
>>28299225Oh thank all that is holy.You'd best send MGS a thankyou message right now.It does beg the question though, does that mean we can bother Big Boss repeatedly to go down in ranks? Perhaps we can be his PA?
>>28299244An S-class who regularly gets checks like that?She wouldn't even notice it.We have to use our friendship powers.
>>28299254>COOK HER DINNERnot even Cynthia deserves that.
>>28299254Are you trying to kill her? God, you're a backstabbing dooshnozzle
>>28299225It's that easy to lose a rank? This system is seriously messed up. As hard as it's been on us, I can't say we'd be any safer outside of it if this is the clusterfuck that's supposed to protect us from villains. I'm tempted to go back to the "become a true hero and show everyone how it's done" plan.Of course, the money's not bad either.>captcha: was ncluctvNah, ClucTV was pretty good too.
>>28299225See if we can even CONCIEVE of a thank you lasagna grateful enough for MGS.Then become paranoid and check your ten for abnormal pointiness.
>>28299226...OR we have her explain this sweet setup we have where she gets a friend as a punch-clock nemesis who keeps other heroes from going after her.Bridgette shouting "ARE YOU TRYING TO GET ME KILLED?!?!?" at her sister might work.
>>28299263At least she'll know we appreciate her if we add a thank you note to it.
>>28299266New plan. Cook MM+ dinner.
>>28299225omgwe could have just annoyed the big boss a lotand he would have ranked us down for itgoddamnit
>>28299286Note to self: don't go off and confront villains on our own without telling anyone.
>>28299299and maybe find a way to jam those annoying robots so they can't see us win/successfully not die vs MM+
>>28299120Didn't our apartment get trashed?>>28299225We probably shouldn't spend it all in case they want some back for dropping down our rank so much. Did we ever visit Mantis Shrimp Man?
Wait, so we are C rank now? That changes things a bit. We could keep the vampire powers and dominate C rank villains.
Oh man I'm gonna make her the best thank you card ever... Magical Girl Sparkle is the best!====================================>You are now Magical Girl Sparkle.>She has just finished breaking into the Hero Association's computer and changed Rena's rank. You have The Esper here to detect if anyone's approaching.>All of these things are very illegal."That should be it. Tell Shadow Man to send her the letter."E: "Will do!"Damn.That girl would be dead ten times over without my help.
>>28299299confronting villians is logged more or less automatically via the PDA.On which we should totally check our rank and MGS's just to be sure this isn't some kind of cruel hoax
>>28299339You're a good girl, Sparkly. The world needs more heroes like you.
it's not her fault MM+ is an ass.
>>28299339The Esper looks like a turret from Portal
>>28299339Dawww. She's breaking the law for Rena. Go, Metal Gear Sparkle!
>>28299339Find MM+ and make her pay.
>>28299339Get out.Time for smoke break.We deal with this shit way too often....That kiss was nice.
>>28299339make sure everything is settled and this can't be traced back to you or anyonerevel in your awesomeness
>>28299339drink and smoke heavily.
>>28299370>...That kiss was nice.Don't mention the kiss!
>>28299339Wonder how you ever got so swole
>>28299339...But now she's got the wrong impression of how the system works. If you keep trying to help her in secret, it'll bring trouble in the long run.
>>28299339Won't someone notice and just put her back to Rank A?Anything else interesting in the computer system? Anything about the villain organization, maybe? Or any secrets about Rena, like a hidden power she has or something?
>>28299387>Wonder how you ever got so swolePuberty can be a real bitch.
>>28299330Just one of the rooms, I believe.>>28299339Remember, Sparkle, this is a sneaking mission.
>>28299339why are they even very illegalwhy are ranks so important anywaysrsly
>>28299433Because Big Boss wills it
>>28299371Done and done.>>28299380In the process of doing>>28299381It was mostly the feeling of her teeth smashing against my soft magical girl lips.>>28299399Girl doesn't need to know how the system works.>>28299407No one's going to notice.Trust me.Rena's powers? I wouldn't be surprised if it were just pure bad luck. Right now though she would actually be pretty strong. I put her in C-Class because I honestly believe she would do well there right now.>>28299369Tried that. She ran away. Rena doesn't realize just how much trouble she's in. I didn't want to freak her out but the Monster Siblings have control over all lesser monsters. Rena isn't exactly the sparkling example of strength so...I think you get what I'm saying.>She leaves the room.A few Heroes are walking around and one or two look at her but no one questions her being there. She leans against the wall and smokes a cigarette.I'm getting the feeling that Rena is getting a bit too close to The Monster Maestro. She doesn't realize how dangerous that entire family is.
>>28299490MM is pretty harmless. You'd like her, actually.Pray tell us, how many bad dudes have you killed?
>>28299490>I'm getting the feeling that Rena is getting a bit too close to The Monster Maestro. She doesn't realize how dangerous that entire family is.MM is harmless, Rena is probably makinh her even more harmless.Lets go get drunk at a local bar.
>>28299490MM is harmless. MM+ is... a bit crazy, but I believe she's nice at the core. Are you talking about Monster Marauder?
>>28299490I mean, Vampires are generally considered near the top of the food chain, would she really be in that much trouble?And maybe you should go talk to Monster Maestro, off the clock of course. You both have an interest in keeping Rena happy and safe
>>28299490Why do you think the Monster Master didn't control her to keep her from running away, then?
>>28299339Go have a chat with MM.She and Rena obviously have a budding relationship, and she's reasonable.Explain how it would be taboo to fight, as she has a nemesis.Then tell her what MM+ did to Rena, and ask her to help keep her sister in line.She will immediately contact MM+ in a panic and explain you showed up and implied you'd kill her if MM+ does anything to Rena. MM+ can hold her own, but she can't protect MM.The problem is thus solved.
>>28299490I have to ask, as is with Sparkle's left arm? Is it in a cast or what?
>>28299490so uhhow did it feel to be betrayed by the master you trustedhow did it feel when you killed it?
>>28299553How could this possibly do anything but make everything worse
>>28299490Just make sure you don't go down with Rena when the inevitable happens.
>>28299490>Girl doesn't need to know how the system works.That's a dangerous way of looking at things. Not knowing important things almost always gets people in trouble. What if she has to talk with the boss for some reason, and ends up mentioning your "negotiations" previously? You could very well be found out and lose your job. And possibly blame her for it.>No one's going to notice.>Trust me.She's already famous for being a rising star hero. Someone's going to notice her suddenly being promoted a rank and then losing two ranks.
>>28299585It's a typical MAD situation, and MM+ is doing this as a plan to help her sister.MM+ won't try to convert or kill Rena if it means MGS takes over as MM's nemesis; MGS is a killer, MM would be helpless against her, and the best MM+ can do against MGS is run away.
>>28299654Is MGS a killer? Self Defense once maybe, to keep a monster from eating her, but outside that I dunno.
>>28299552She's not a real monster, yet.>>28299554It's mechanical.>>28299555...>>28299536If you think Monster Master is crazy you should meet Monster Marauder. He's fucking insane. I've seen him rampage and rip people in half... Heroes and civilians alike.>>28299518Killed? I lost count. Maybe 12? 13? I try not to think about it. I only kill them when there is no other option though.>>28299587You think I'd let myself die for her? I will protect her but people have sacrificed too much to me for me to die for such a stupid reason.>>28299593They won't notice. It seems silly to say this to myself but the rankings change so often that it doesn't bother anyone.And Big Boss will never notice.Now let's hope that girl can handle a few missions for the next few days and avoid that crazy Monster Master.>She finishes smoking and tosses her cigarette down....I need a drink...
>>28299692Find Charle's Bar.Some Kong sounds good.
>>28299692Lets go get drunk
>>28299692Thanks for running.But if I can comment, I think your quests are better when you don't rub our faces in the cuteness, and it just stands on its own.Also please railroad slightly less.
>>28299692>Go get a stiff one
>>28299692>people have sacrificed too much to mePeople sacrifice TO you? As though you were some sort of pagan blood goddess?Not what I'd expect out of a hero type. However, as Anti-Hero would say, it's hardcore.
>>28299654The best we have SEEN MM+ do is run awayThere's also the rest of her crazy family and the potentially fatal assumption you are making regarding MM+ reacting like a reasonable person.
Is rena a not completely a vampire forever now if she doesn't actively try to cure it?
So... about that fic...
>>28299692Archive time?Thanks for running. Really tugged at all the emotional (panic) highs and lows.
>>28299808Mostly highs though
>>28299724Surely you mean a Cold One?
>>28299006Go home. Practice cooking. Make garlic bread.
>>28299721You say that as though I actually planned anything that happened this chapter. We were supposed to meet a different villain.I had to cut off this chapter a bit sooner than I would have liked but it's getting rather late. Check the twitter and I'll post when the next chapter starts.>>28299785Rena would stay half vampire so long as she doesn't get cured>>28299808Glad you liked it. We're about done for the day.Also someone had asked for MM's hair color so I quickly colored the first update just to give an idea of some of the colors.>>28299786It was already posted in QTG. Not sure if it's the whole thing but here it is: http://pastebin.com/EHKsTUmg
>>28299856That fuck should seriously get a pastebin account so I could track himThanks for the link
>>28299856>Rena would stay half vampire so long as she doesn't get curedI think the cure should be avoided just as much as getting bitten more.Actually having some powers would be nice. No more worrying about ending up like the rainbow rangers.
>>28299856>Rena would stay half vampire so long as she doesn't get curedso she actually is half-vampire?
> Rena is half vampireSo... We can learn vampiric disciplines?
>>28299924Technically, yes. There's really no other term that would fit.>>28299962No.All she has is better strength, speed, and healing. It's similar to the buff Magical Girl Sparkle gave her.
>>28299995We don't seem to be suffering from the sun much. Or will it only affect us when we're full vampire?
>>28299995what I am hearing is we need to get a sword some shades, trench coat and a old man
It would seem that the game plan is to acquire lots of not-quite-full powers that have different downsides but similar upsides so as to stack them into become strong without incurring any significant weakness.
>>28300008It only makes her feel a bit weaker right now. In bright sunlight Rena would feel very uncomfortable and if she would stay out too long she would get burned.That is the least of your worries though if she becomes a full vampire.>>28300015Yes. Yes we do. Forget the old man though. We have a cat.
>>28299856This is the -woist- fapfic. it cuts off right as rena gets knocked out to go to the rape dungeon!I guess he had to leave in a cliffhanger for part 3
>>28300017I think the game plan is to survive this clusterfuck
>>28300024Read the title, it says preview
>>28300015We should talk to AH about those first three.
We need to up the training. Besides doing what Chet told us, we should see if there's anyone willing to teach us martial arts. And we could go for an improved uniform to further increase our durability in battle.Next, gadgets. The hook gun, some gloves and boots that'd allow us to cling onto walls, glue and gas bombs, all that noise. And we could put away some of our cash on a bank account. It's not smart running around with all that money. Have to think of a retirement plan as well.
>>28300106>Have to think of a retirement plan as wellOr a will
>>28300121leave it all to the cat
>>28300192oh shit, our mom might still be aliveDo we even have parents?Let's not tell anybody about them, but put them in the will.
>>28299856I don't suppose anyone has a link to the first fic.
>>28300106>putting your money in a bank in a town full of supervillians.
