Fuck Job Applications EditionYou're Tammy Konstantin, an 18yo NEET/hiki of two years who've been forced to snap out of NEET-dom and get a job or go back to school within a month, otherwise you'll be kicked out from home by your parents.After dropping out of highschool due to a certain event, you've almost never left your room and haven't been outside the house for over a year, until earlier in the quest with the help of the always diligent gentlemen of /tg/. On top of that, Tammy now have a job application to hand out thanks to the help and incredibly patience shown by the very same guys from /tg/. I promise to never, ever do something like that again.There's still a long way to go, though, seeing as Tammy still have problems even talking with her family. And to go from that to having a job or stable education within the 28 days that are left is going to require some radical changes, and most likely a lot of awkward situations and stomach churning.Older threads can be found here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=NEET%20QuestWithout further ado, let's get rolling.
The finished job application for those who cares.
Leaning back in your chair, crossing your arms, you run your eyes over the application spread across your screen. With a satisfied smile, you nod to yourself and save it thrice - on your computer and two separate USB sticks. You really don't want the last 4 hours of work go to waste. You stretch your skinny body long and thorough, making sure to get that crack in your back that always sends delightful static through your body. Suddenly it dawns on you that even though you have a very nice looking job application ready, you still haven't been able to leave the house for more than a couple of minutes, let alone find your shoes.Grumbling a bit over this, you stand up from your work station and immediately fall to the floor. Your legs had fallen asleep from the 4 hours of sitting down, and cursing to yourself you massage them until they resume functioning. Raising yourself onto your legs, you brush yourself off and head to the bathroom. Seeing as you've just sat down for 4 hours straight, you have some business to attend to. After splashing some water in your face and have a good, long drink, you enter the hallway again and notice that the music from Kasper's room have stopped. You sneak up to his door, making sure they won't hear you if they're still in there, and confirming that no noise is coming from the inside, concludes that they must've gone out.You head back to your room with a slight elegance after realizing you have the house for yourself. After swiveling triumphantly on your chair a couple of times, you lean back and contemplate what to do for the remainder of this lovely Saturday.>A. Play vidya>B. Lurk imageboards>C. Watch some anime>D. Go look for your shoes and other everyday stuff in the basement>E. Go shift through Kasper's room>F. Other
>>28305272i think that counts as a cover letter, not an application
>>28305286>D. Go look for your shoes and other everyday stuff in the basement
>>28305286E. We're concerned about Kasper's well-being. Then maybe D.
>>28305286>>C. Watch some animeWe done good, she needs to cool off
>>28305371wonder what kinda anime she likes
>>28305286>D. Go look for your shoes and other everyday stuff in the basement>F. Eat lunchIt is about lunch time or soonish since Tammy ate a small breakfast 4 hours ago (still sad the glorious triple plate + apple breakfast was floored).
>>28305286C because it's unreasonable she'd do this much positive change this fast without taking some time
>>28305286E. then D, We need to investigate.
>>28305272My resume looks nothing like this.What is this?
>>28305447Resume kind of depend on the country.
>>28305547My American resume looks nothing like this.What nationality made this resume?
>>28305589It's a NEET resume for someone who has never held a job ever. Eeeeeever. Ever ever ever ever.Cut the girl some slack.
>>28305601I mean the picture, and the paragraphs of text and everything. It's got a letter in it....She should probably get that proofread.
>>28305627Is there suppose to be a difference between an unsolicited job application and a resume?
>>28305627You say it like it's importantThe whole resume compiling thing was unnecessary in my opinion. Just ask to compile a skillset, interests and hobbies and general contents
I'd rather she submitted a bad resume and had an emotional breakdown than us spend 3 days trying to write a perfect resume for her. Please move on unless it becomes relevant
>>28305286>D. Go look for your shoes and other everyday stuff in the basement.
I'll throw my vote in with lunch, and C. She did a lot of work, and it's time to relax a bit. >>28305663>>28305670>>28305681I'm not saying we should spend more time on this. I'm impressed it was put together in the first place. I'm just wondering if it's the kind of thing other people are doing, and if it works for them.
>>28305321>>28305389>>28305403You scan your memory looking for the last time you had your shoes and coats, and where you left them. Recalling coming home after that fateful day two years ago, you also remember throwing off your jacket and shoes in the hallway before locking yourself away in your room.Getting out of your room, you head downstairs, listening for any noises before heading there to ensure you wouldn't get any nasty surprises. The unexpected meeting earlier today have left you a bit on edge when it comes to moving around in the house. Seeing as no one is there, you head for the wardrobe to the right of the front door and start shuffling through the coats and shoes cramped in between each other.Finding nothing, you ponder to yourself where your stuff could be. The best bet would probably be the basement. You head out through the utility room and find the door to the basement, prying it open by leaning in some shoulder. It opens with a loud creak and leads to a staircase that seems to descend into nothing. You can't help but have second thoughts about heading downstairs after seeing the darkness, but assert yourself by reminding you that you're not a little girl any more.You turn on the light on the contact on the wall just inside the door, and a single light bulb dangling from the ceiling in its cord springs to life, revealing an amount of around 50 neatly stacked moving boxes and random other things scattered among them.cont.
>>28305735The boxes are all labelled, making it easy to find what you're looking for. After browsing a bit, you come to a box named "Tam's Stuff". Opening it reveals what you were looking for: several jackets both for summer and winter, and five pairs of assorted shoes and boots. You try to weigh the box with your arms and find it to be of acceptable weight, so you bend down and lift it up.As you turn around, box in arms, you're faced with something that sends chills down your spine. A box labelled "T. H-School 2009-2011". Your mind blanks out, and for a moment takes you back to before the event. Hanging out with your two best friends, participating in club activities, running track, laughing, whispering about boys, having dreams for the future... You remember being happy, not having a single worry in the world, and believing that life couldn't get better.Your mind returning to the dusty basement, you find tears trickling down your cheeks without you making a sound. You try to dry them away, but they just keep running. Nothing good would come of dwelling on the past more than necessary, and the last thing you need now is a relapse to two years ago due to being reminded of what was lost. You straighten yourself up and start ascending out of the darkness, but stop halfway on the staircase. Your curiosity leaves you standing. A little peek into the past couldn't hurt... could it?>A. Continue walking. Nothing good can come out of this.>B. Take a look in the box
>>28305754B.It's just my own curiosity speaking.
>>28305754>>B. Take a look in the boxWhat's in the box? I NEED TO KNOW
>>28305754>B. Take a look in the boxWHAT'S IN THE BOX MAN
>>28305754B. We gotta know.
>>28305754A: because the majority are being unrealistic
>>28305851I agree with him don't wanna make that resume worthless
>>28305754A because emotional instability.
>>28305859If she has a trauma she probably doesn't want to look in the box no matter how much us viewers do.Plus she probably already knows what is in there and wants to forget.
>>28305754C: Take the box and throw it away in a fit
>>28305925Whatever, if writer throws a bait we gotta take it. She may know, but we don't, that's what important here
>>28305754>A.There is no need to dwell in the past, Tammy. Your current problems are in the present, and we need to deal with those.
>>28305754A, no point dwelling in the past. Keep walking forward.
>>28305966If we're all in tamys head then she shuld probably see a psychiatrist can that be >z?
>>28305993you telling me you don't talk to people in your head?
>>28305754B. Don't dwell on the past, live for the day, and prepare for the future
>>28305754>B. Take a look in the box.
>>28306032Your choice contradicts your commentB is dwelling on the past bro
>dwelling on the past>implying not confronting him
>>28306058I think he means try to get over it.
>>28305754B. Do it, fem-faggot.
>>28306098It's okay Frenchfaggot.
>>28305754BDo it, Dyke
>A. Don't look in the box!Oh wow, the other thread when to autosage by the time I got back from work
>>28306246Lol doing boring work in animation class so I'm just waiting on story and doing small bits of it at a time
>>28305754B cause. Yknow. You need shoes don't you?
>>28305772>>28305776>>28305798>>28305799>>28306032>>28306057>>28306129You turn around where you stand and walk back down into the basement. Placing the box with clothes down near the bottom of the stairs, you make your way back to where you found the box with your past in it. Slowly and meticulously, you remove the boxes on top, until you're able to sit in front of and open the lid of the one you're after. With trembling hands and sweat forming on your forehead, you add another thing to your long list of bad decisions and open the box.The first thing you're greeted with is a bunch of papers. Class notes, printouts, club schedules, all kinds of things that you used to have stashed in your locker. Your parents were probably forced to show up and empty it after you refused to go back there. Digging through the pile, making sure to check each piece of paper for anything that might be important after these years, you start to feel a little bit calmer seeing as you don't find anything worrying. Then something slips out as you pick up another stack.It's a tiny piece of paper, about half the size of an A4 ark. In the half darkness of the basement you can't make out what it is, but you know by instinct what it is. As you pick up the old, faded photograph and look at it, your throat clench up. Your lower lip quivers, your body shivering from the cold wash of sadness flowing through you, you look at the photo of you on the first day of school, smiling brightly as ever in your cute summer dress, standing in the middle of your two used-to-be best friends, Kim and Sandra.cont.
>>28306549As your body attempts to hold on to something, anything, to comfort you, but finds nothing but empty air, you wrap your arms around yourself and bend over slightly, silently weeping, letting the tears fall freely onto the concrete floor below. You three used to be inseparable, ever since you transferred into middle school when your family moved to the city. You recall the happiness of all those sleepovers where you'd all stay up and make up stories to tell each other about knights and the massive, dangerous dragons that they had to slay in order to save the beautiful princess who for some reason always resembled the one who told the story. You recall the sadness when one of you would be rejected by a boy, and how the two who didn't get rejected would drop everything in their hands and console the sad part of the trio until everything was in order. You recall the exciting times, when you all started out in the same high school, how happy you were on that day to take such a big step in your life at the same time as your two best friends. But worst of all, you remember how they turned your back on you, believing those false accusations that everyone at the school was fed by... her.Sadness turned to anger, and anger turned to sadness as you recall what that girl, that devil, that bitch did to you and that freshman. Anger from how she ruined your life, and sadness because you continued ruining it despite your promise to yourself not to. If only you could to back to that day, you could change it all, start fresh, convince everyone you didn't do it. But, in the end you had nothing to say. Everyone believed her, and with the evidence she had, who could doubt her? No one, not even Kim and Sandra.cont.
>>28306564Ripping the picture into pieces and tossing them all into the box, you dry your tears and pack it all back together. Putting it back in its spot and placing the others back on top of it as if nothing had ever happened, you grab hold of the box you came looking for and move upstairs, turning off the light and shutting the door behind, leaving the past where it should be; packed away in the darkness, unseen, not spoken about. With renewed resolve after recalling your promise to yourself back when it happened, you drag your stuff upstairs and place the box down with a dusty bump on the floor of your room. You noticed when you came up the stairs that music was again playing from Kasper's room, so he's back home again, probably from dropping off Chris.Opening the box again, you try on different coats and shoes and find out that, to your luck, they all still fit. Prancing around a bit in them to get the feel of using shoes again, you dump yourself down on your bed and let out a huge sigh. Why did it take two years for you to actually do something about your promise, and why did you have to destroy your life beforehand?>A. Play vidya>B. Watch anime>C. Browse imageboards>D. Make some lunch>E. Go talk to Kasper>F. Attempt to walk outside again with your newly reacquired clothes>G. Other
>>28306581>E. Go talk to KasperWe need some brotherly love right now.
>>28306581>F. Attempt to walk outside again with your newly reacquired clothesNo guts no glory
>>28306581>D. Make some lunchNeed energy!
>>28306581Do we have any money?
>E. Go talk to Kasper
>>28306581F. Let's be brave
>>28306581D then E.
>>28306581EMake him help you with something like talking to people.
>>28306581G:Consider suicide for being such a betamax
>we and a freshman of undetermined sex were accused of something by That Bitch>everybody believed her, including our best friends>evidence was damning enough that we couldn't fight it>accusation was such that it would throw a teenager into NEETdomThe plot thickens. Also>you could change it all, start fresh, convince everyone you didn't do it.> But, in the end you had nothing to say. Everyone believed her>and with the evidence she had, who could doubt her?So we might actually have done something heinous, instead of just being accused of it. Interesting.
>>28306681Calling it now: wherever we choose to work or study, That Bitch will be there, or will appear shortly
>>28306727I'm calling it that our bro's sorta girlfriend knows That Bitch
So, seeing as I'm not exactly a NEET, actually more like the opposite of it, I have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work. Which means I'll be calling it a night now.I have two 12 hour shifts this weekend, however my job at this time of the year consists mostly of sitting on my ass doing nothing 50% of the time. So I'll have plenty of time to write, seeing as I'll just bring my laptop.Question is, would you prefer me doing regular updates throughout my whole shift, albeit with some potential delay due to actually working, or writing one long-ass post to throw at you when I get home?
>>28306802Long ass posts and the time related with that
>>28306802Updates if it doesn't interfere with your work.
Where do we live, anyway? Plinkton, PE? We live in Peru?
>>28306796That's a good call, actuallyBy the by, how did she know our name? In fact, fuck literally everyone from our ex-schoolAlso now I get it why Kasper was bitter with us initially. Since we bailed, he was getting shit instead of us. Maybe
>>28306802I vote updates, as long as your work permits>>28306879Pennsylvania, most likely?
>>28306581>D. Make some lunch.
>>28306907That's PA. I considered we might live outside the US, but the only PE is Peru.
>>28306826>>28306853>>28306872>>28306907Cotcha. Need to keep the thread alive.
>>28307134How do you suppose we do that with out shit posting?
>>28307226This should be good for 6 hours. Then I bump it when I wake up.I'll get it going again myself if I must.
>>28307226By posting battlestations from time to time?
>>28307226talk about our neet lives to give him ideas?
>>28307226My 4chan folder currently has 35.429 images in it. There's gotta be SOMETHING appropriate I can post every few hours.
>>28307367>Has a bunch of images>Doesn't post a single oneFuck you, have a story time.
>>28307321I have a general idea of what a NEET is but I don't think I'm exactly one cuz I'm in high school
>>28307457NEET means "Not Employed, in Education or Training".If you're in high school, you can't be a NEET.If you go to high school, you can't even be a shut-in.
The problem is we're using NEET as a replacement for shut-in half the time when they aren't always interchangeable. You technically could have an outgoing normalfag NEET who hangs out with his buddies in bars all the time and you could have a shut-in who goes to online college but can't talk to anyone.She's more of a shut-in who happens to be a NEET
>>28307482Technically, if you go to High School, you are most likely Underageb@Like that rule get enforced.Just spell out your words kid. Truncated nonsense makes old men sneer.
>>28305262I'm confused is it the first post who decides the option, or the option with most votes, or is it decided on rolls?
>>28307504More like she became a shut-in, which lead to her being a NEET.
>>28307526Whatever he decides
>>28307504Shut-in who is not NEET reporting in.Taking online college. NEET soon though because once I graduate it's going to be hell once everyone realizes I can't go outside and talk to people to get a job.
>>28307482Ahh thanks never knew exactly what that ment.
>>28307510>Just spell out your words kid. Truncated nonsense makes old men sneerYou're getting off to this, aren't you?
You know this and the last thread were the first quest threads I've ever been to. Why the fuck haven't I gone through these before?
>>28307588No. I have /d/ for that.There's a thread about Robutts in there right now. One about aliens too.
>>28307456NIgga I said every few hours.Also I don't even know just what the fuck is in there. Like I don't even remember saving 5% of that shit. This fucking unorganized folder has been going since 06.
>>28307733Well If u got anything better then " ima a moped and you can't rape mopeds with tenticals" feel free to post
>>28307774I'm sure I have. The problem is finding it.
>>28307801I can just start a random slideshow and shit like this comes up. I don't even know which board this is.
>>28307859Do we have a bored dedicated to beards?
>>28307903It's from /co/
Anyone have the one of the guy who had yandere fairy gf, so his solution was to never stop fucking her?I believe there was a pic captioned "Can't we all just get along?"
>>28307903>>28307939Again, I have no idea where even half of this stuff comes from. But we should probably not bump this often, we are even still on page one.
>>28308008Shit to good need nerf P.S typing in a bus is a bitch
So it looks like things went well even after poking through the box.
Anyone else here?
>>28312199I'm here. How's everyone?
Is the other guy still here?
>>28313131"other guy"be more specific
Morning.6 hours of uneasy sleep. Bleh. Something about the full moon always makes me sleep uneasy, like if I had a fever.I'll get to it as soon as possible.
>>28313364No hurry, when you are wide awake and ready is good for you and the quest.
>>28313364It's that werewolf blood.
>>28313450My mother has the problem too.I have some weird connection with the full moon. When I stare at it outside, I get a strange calm feeling in my body Like the calm that goes over you when you stare in to a camp-fire.
>>28313494And that doesn't make you sleepy at all?
>>28313514Not really, no.
>>28313494NEET Master is of the dark arts.
Morning NEET Master!EST person here. Ya moons are cool. Was walking by the lake and looking at the moon over it all fancy like.
What time zone is NEET Master in?
>>28314737And is he/she even here right now?
>>28314737>>28315035UTC +1. And yep, writing.
>>28315451>UTC +1And where would that be?
>>28306611>>28306646>>28306661>>28306739>>28306752Sighing again, you pull yourself out of bed and remove the jacket and shoes you'd been trying on. A sort of indifferent sadness have swept over you, reminding you what's lost and the futility of mourning it at the same time. Without thinking the thought itself consciously, you get out of your room and find yourself facing Kasper's door. Mellow electronic music can be heard from the inside, and artist who's most likely The Flashbulb.Knocking twice with a shivering fist, you hear the music being turned down and a muffled "Yeah?" come from the inside as a reply to the knocks. Getting the hint, you reluctantly open the door, seeing as you're still not quite used to talking to someone about how you feel. Inside the room, you find Kasper sitting at his computer, working on something that looks like a lab report. He's turned around in his wooden chair, facing you, and seeing that it's you who he gets that certain kind of smile on his face; happy, but worried."Oh, it's you." he says with a sigh, as he most likely expected you to be mom. "Where did you disappear to before? By the way, I spoke to Chris and - ""I-I found..." you interrupt, stopping him in his vocal tracks and getting his full attention. The smile has disappeared from his face."I-I found a picture of Kim and S-Sandra when I went to the b-basement to get clothes..." Your face turns against the ground, the mere act of recalling the photo bringing up unnecessary emotions. Without a word, Kasper simply stand up, walk over to you, and wrap his arms around you, pressing you against his chest in a heartfelt embrace. Don't cry, you tell yourself. Don't cry. Enough crying. Don't cry - ah, damn.cont.
>>28315669Just holding on to you until you're finished crying is all Kasper needed to do in that moment, and he realize this. Squatting down to meet eye-to-eye with your wet, swollen, deep blue eyes."Hey, sis. It's alright." he says in an assuring tone. "If you ask me, friends who don't support friends in even the worst of cases aren't real friends." He ruffles through your hair with his hand, and stand up straight again with a smile on his face like a commander who just gave an amazing pre-battle speech to his troops. You can't help but notice the double moral in his words, but still finds assurance in them. Sniffling, you turn to look at him."A-actually, I wanted to ask you something...">A. Ask if he would like to eat lunch together>B. Ask if he would like to take a walk together>C. Ask what he thinks of Chris>D. Ask if he would review your job application>E. Ask if he would like to take a shower together>F. Other
>>28315689>>B. Ask if he would like to take a walk togetherAs much as I'd like D, we need to walk and talk this over.
>>28315485Places like Barcelona and Copenhagen.
>>28315689Could we do A, B & D together?First B, then A then D. Or D then B then A.
>>28315689B then A if possible.Otherwise B
>>28315689B, and then D
>>28315689A then maybe B, if we're up for it.
>>28315689B. Let's take a walk, we've been wanting to try out our shoes and jacket anyways.Great writing btw OP
>>28315828>Great writing btw OPYeah.Unlike BlackJack, NEET Master actually takes his time to write great stuff rather than just a shitty half-paragraph.
>>28315689EHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAI've actually been participating with these threads since the beginning, and I was always trying to make her happy, but now I just want to see her Tomoko it up
>>28316077That just doesn't make much sense.
>>28316239My motivations?Or do you not understand what was trying to I say at all?
>>28315689B bring up the job aplication then D and A while D
>>28316280The reasoning for asking him that.
>>28316349I want to watch her drop spaghetti.It's just like one of my Japanese animes.
>>28316389Only if we roll a 1.
>>28316520holy fuck you magicaly know time warp throw the spaghetti in the air and gracefully slurp each noodle as there faling.
>>28316547So does she anti-spaghetti so hard she comes back around to performing a minor spaghetti act?Or does she make her brother think that she's the coolest person ever?
>>28316641nope he has a heart attack from the pure awesomeness
>>28315696>>28315710>>28315747>>28315757>>28315828Bracing yourself for potential rejection, you contemplate how to express yourself properly. Deciding that's there's no proper way to do so, you just go with it:"W-would you like t-to take a walk... you know, t-together?" you ask him quietly, shrinking a bit, preparing for the worst. Kasper takes a second to let the question sink in, just enough time for the lead ball of regret to manifest itself in your chest. You shouldn't have asked, not so bluntly. He will think you're even more strange now. Kasper, however, thinking nothing like that, just smiles and replies:"Of course. Let me just finish up this paper, then let's go for a walk. Shouldn't take long."Upon hearing this, your whole face lights up in happy surprise. You can't help but smile a bit, and even though it's just a tiny smile, your happiness is clearly visible in the shine of your eyes."O-Okay!" you reply, not able to contain the excitement in your voice. Kasper, picking up on this, lets out a hearty laugh and smiles again. You, thinking that you should give him some time alone, quickly leave the room and shut the door behind you. Kasper, sighing and shaking his head with a slight laugh, returns to his chair. Just as he sits down, you open up the door and peek in with your head."W-would you like some l-lunch?" You ask him, thinking it proper to ask considering that you were going to get some anyway."Yes please, a BLT sandwich would be nice.""O-okay."Heading for the kitchen, you can't help but feel excited for the walk you'll be having later. You truly feel blessed having a guy like Kasper as your brother.cont.
>>28316883Frying bacon, toasting bread, and slicing tomato, you're in such a good mood from having the chance to help out like this that you start to hum for yourself. Different anime themes can be heard over the sound of chopping and sizzling, and before long you're balancing upstairs carrying two plates, a delicious sandwich on each of them. Placing yours on your computer desk, you head to your brothers room and knock before entering. After getting the green light to enter, you quickly run in and place it in front of him without saying anything. Kasper looks fully surprised at the sight of the sandwich, and turns to you with an impressed look on his face."Wow, Tam, it looks delicious. Thanks!" he says with honesty in his voice.You can't help but blush. It's been a long time since anyone have shown appreciation towards anything you've done. Resisting the urge to bow before leaving, you quietly slip out the door and back to your room, catching a glimpse of Kasper digging into his sandwich with vigor before closing the door behind you.As you sit and nip on your own sandwich, all bubbly inside from making someone else happy, you try to compile a list of places that you could perhaps go to for a walk.>A. Ask /r9k/ for advice>B. Go to the local grocery store (roll 1d20, must be over 15, first uneven post number counts)>C. Go to the mall (roll 1d20, must be over 18, first even post number counts)>D. Just go down the street and back. Let's not get cocky.>E. Other
Rolled 9>>28316520>B. Go to the local grocery store (roll 1d20, must be over 15, first uneven post number counts)Even if I fail, we can probably just go down the street and back.
Rolled 6>>28316900>C. Go to the mall (roll 1d20, must be over 18, first even post number counts)
>>28316900D. Let's not push it too hard. Just go outside, get used to walking around in the cold, talk a bit, then come home.
>>28316900E any public parks near by? nice place to walk. probably low chance of being bothered by other people. and fuck ya parks
>>28316900>>28316996Seconding the public park idea. Otherwise D. Little steps.
>>28316996>>28317060A quick Google Maps search on your address turns up a number of locations in the neighborhood that would be worth visiting. What immediately catches your eyes is a tiny park named 'Contemplation Hill', no bigger than an acre, two blocks over. You don't remember it being there, so it must've been planted in the time you've been shut away from the world. From what you can see on the satellite image, it appears to be a fairly regular park layout-wise; built on the corner of two roads, a small pond in the middle surrounded by a dirt trail with two trails leading in from the street located in each end of the park. There also appears to be a tiny paved area near the pond, probably for people who wish to sit and read or play chess, and some open, grassy areas for relaxing in the sun. The choice of where to stroll by seems obvious after looking at this park and its features, though here in the wintertime it's sure to be more like an idyllic, quiet place with a frozen over pond, naked trees sporting snow clad branches, and paths formed in the snow from people enjoying the chilly atmosphere. You're not really sure with yourself which version of the park you'd prefer; the warm summer edition full of life, or the cold winter edition of eerie quietness. Thinking that it might be because you just haven't experienced any of them in a long time, you decide upon going there anyway.You start dressing yourself for going outside. Scarf around the neck, thick, woolly coat to keep you warm, and winter boots to keep your feet dry. Your thin, pale body wrapped in winter clothing makes you look like a sick girl trying to ward off a cold. Just as your finish tying your boots, Kasper knocks on your door. Opening the door, you see him dressed in the same manner as you; scarf, coat and boots, albeit his style, colors and overall body shape makes him look like a hunter heading out into the woods.cont.
>>28317866"Ready to go?" he inquires, you responding with a single nod. As you head down the stairs he asks where you'd like to go."T-the park. Over by Lincoln Street.""Fair enough, that isn't too far away. It looks nice this time of the year. The pond is all frozen over, you can even ice skate on it."For a second the image of you dressed in full ice princess regalia flashes before your eyes, and you feel the warmth of your blush heating up your face. Kasper doesn't seem to notice.Kasper push open the heavy front door and steps outside with a worry. That is to be expected of him, of course, but it still appears a bit unreal to you to have such a leisurely attitude towards the outside. Again you freeze in place mere feet from the open door, shades of doubt clouding your mind. All kinds of dangerous things are out there, shadows from your past living in this very neighborhood. You could bump in to them, even if it's only such a short walk. Kasper, noticing you not following you outside, turns around and looks as you standing there with a look of desperate undecidedness in your eyes. He extends a gloved hand towards you, welcoming you to the outside."Are you coming?" he asks in a neutral tone.>A. Turn around. It's too dangerous.>B. Take his hand and follow him. (roll 1d20, highest of first 3 rolls count, must be over 15 total. +5 brother bonus to rolls.)>C. Other
Sorry for taking a war an a half with the updates. Customers are rather pushy today.
>>28317894Take his hand. Come on. Won't you take a poor sinner's hand?
Rolled 1>>28317894>B. Take his hand and follow him. (roll 1d20, highest of first 3 rolls count, must be over 15 total. +5 brother bonus to rolls.)
Rolled 12>>28317894BWhoops. That 1d100 was from another quest. I'll delete that soon enough.
Rolled 17Go dice roll!
>>28317917>>28317920>>28317940Looks like we made it.
>>28317920>>28317917pls stah rolling
>>28317940Listen to this while reading the following: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UvepzXMdVEYou extend your hand, and pull it back again halfway. Seeing your brothers face beyond the outstretched hand makes the fear go away just enough for you to finally extend your arm and catch on to his hand with your own. With one, strong pull, he guides you out of the door and drag you gently onto the street. Walking onto the sidewalk after all that's happen fills you with thrill, as if you stepped on to a rollercoaster. Clutching the fabric of your brother's coat with both hands, half-hiding behind him, you start walking slowly down the street towards the park.The world is as if sleeping; everything is clad in snow like a white silken dress on a pale, frail body, seeming like the slightest disturbance could ruin the perfectly still atmosphere. Not a wind is blowing. Every sound, every breath you take, silenced by the snowy fabric, as if your surroundings imply a need to be quiet. Feeling the snow crush under your feet sends slight shivers up through your bones every time a pile gives away to the weight of your body. The sun, starting to hang low on the pale blue winter sky, sending its warm beams through the snow hanging from the branches of the trees in the front gardens of the houses you pass on the street, creating a cascade of colors whenever a bird takes off and spread the snow into particles for the sun to play in.cont.
>>28318847¨You and Kasper walk in silence, simply because words are not needed to express what you're feeling. You can't help but view everything you see with a childlike curiosity, which presents itself through your facial expression and your eyes darting around, capturing every event worth seeing and even those not worth it just for the sake of seeing them. A car rolls by, its wheels croaking in the snow underneath it, and as you observe the people inside with a nervous glance, you suddenly feel your feet disappear below you as you slip on a path of ice. Kasper, fully aware of every little move you're making, braces himself and grabs on to you with the swiftness of a falcon, snatching you up before you're able to hit the cold, hard ground.Placing you back on your feet and dusting you off, he simply nods and continues walking. You mumble a quiet thanks, and once again clutch on to his coat, this time a bit tighter to avoid repeating your embarrassing semi-trip. Continuing your silent journey to the park, you eying everything to make sure you know what to expect once you leave the house by yourself, you suddenly find yourself standing at the entrance to the park. A sign with a strip of undisturbed snow on top informs you that it is indeed "Contemplation Hill" that you've reached, and shows a tiny map of the place which in itself might have been a little superfluous seeing as you can easily look from one end of the park to the other. cont.
>>28318864The dirt trail snaking its way through the park had been cleaned for snow, so walking on it resulted in a satisfying 'crunch, crunch' sound with every step, breaking the peace and quiet just enough for it to be enjoyable. Out on the pond, you see two children skating along, laughing as they make attempts at spinning around and jumping. Every time one of the would fall over, they'd have a hearty giggle and help each other up again. You and Kasper, reaching a bench overlooking the pond, sit down and sigh simultaneously. You'd never thought that simply walking along in silence could be so exhausting, but all the little sights and feelings, such as the cold biting into your skin and the sun reflecting off a frozen puddle, combines into one big picture that's so very new and strange compared to your everyday of the last two years. Allowing yourself to lean against Kasper's shoulder, and him not disallowing it, you sigh the longest you've sighed in a while, feeling truly relaxed in an outdoor environment. You feel tired, exhausted from a busy day, the sun slowly sinking into the treetops across from you and the warm, secure feeling of Kasper next too you, and before you know you've drifted off into a deep and sound sleep.—cont.
>>28318876You wake up with a jolt. Looking around you, expecting to see the park in darkness, you find yourself lying in your bed in your room. Seeing your boots standing by the door dripping with snowy water, and your jacket hanging from your chair, you come to the conclusion that Kasper must've carried you home after you dozed off. Perplexed from the thought of this and not really knowing how to react to such a thing, you can't help but freak out a bit considering what Kasper might think of you for falling asleep on him. You quickly calm yourself though, considering what he's put up with you doing so far while remaining nice to you, so instead of freaking out you yawn good and thorough, and stretch yourself. With the intake of air following the yawn you smell something good coming from the hallway that could only be the scent of dinner being prepared. You take this as a solid indication that mom and dad are home. Moving yourself from your bed to your computer, you yawn once again, and see that the time is already a quarter to 7 in the evening. You've slept for more than 3 hours. You make a mental note to thank Kasper later for his friendliness. For now, you open up your regular imageboards, browse through them and conclude that it's all the same shit being reposted.>A. Play vidya>B. Watch some anime>C. Post on /r9k/ about your achievements>D. Go see if you can help with dinner>E. Go refresh yourself in the bathroom after the walk>F. Other
>>28318889F. Go thank Kasper.
>>28318889>>B. Watch some anime
>>28318915Yeah, I should probably have added that.Forming a coherent post while managing customers is a challenge in itself.
>>28318915This, then >D. Go see if you can help with dinner
>>28318915>>28319136You lean back in your chair and start to recall the events of the last few days. First of all, you became forced to deal with reality thanks to the ultimatum presented to you. Then the day after, you cleaned your room and made first contact with your mom. After that, you've stepped outside of the house for the first time in years, gotten incredibly friendly with your brother, and made a job application. You've gone from a disgusting, unpleasant, awkward NEET to a clean, hopefully pleasant, yet still cringeworthy and rather awkward NEET. The amount of radical change in such a short time have made you forget to be scared of it all.You believe a thank you is in order to Kasper for having to haul you back to the house after falling asleep in the park. Building up your courage, you exit your room and head for his, getting a good impression of what might be for dinner in the process. Smells like chili, yum. After knocking on Kasper's door, you're greeted by him having the most provoking smirk ever plastered all over his face."A little tired, eh? Slept well?" he asks in the most teasing of tones.Your face turns beet-red, and you start to fumble around, not really knowing what to say. His remark caught you completely off guard, and you can't seem to properly explain what you came for.cont.
>>28320334"Uh, um, erh, eh, buh," you say, only making it all that much more awkward. Kasper, standing there smirking even more after getting the reaction he was hoping for, just start to laugh uncontrollably. Straightening yourself up, clutching your hands in front of you, still completely red in the face, you manage to spit out the words you came to say:"T-t-thankyouforcarryingmehome!!" you yell at him and run straight back to your room, slamming the door behind you. Throwing yourself on your bed, you start to curse and cringe to yourself about what you just did. Damn, Kasper! You big jerk! How dare you tease me like that for an honest mistake! Yelling in to your pillow helps reduce the embarrassment a bit, and after calming down you turn around, staring into the ceiling, wondering if dinner is soon ready.>A. Play vidya>B. Watch anime>C. Browse imageboards>D. Go check up on dinner>E. Go show dad your job application>F. Other
>>28320344>F. Otherlets watch chinese cartoons pornography while waiting for dinner
>>28320344>E. Go show dad your job applicationActually a good idea, he can help with that, if there's something wrong
F: Take a warm showerlet our OCD rear its head again.
>>28320344>A. Play vidyaI think we need to do something that doesn't involve other people for a while.
>>28320455Yeah, plus he might like the progress we've made.
Heading home from work now. 12 hours of multitasking work and questing on little sleep have left me exhausted, so I'll call it a night already.Are people still interested in this quest?
>>28321103It's the only quest I've ever been interested in, take that for what you will
>>28321103Oh my god it's so good.
>>28320344As practical as E might sound, it might be a bit too much. I know I'm not ready to deal with job applications after going through that.A or B
>>28321103It's about the only interesting thing going on now, so yes.
>>28321103Yes. Mmmmmmmake it so.
>>28321139>>28321141>>28321143>>28321156>>28321196>>28321234>>28321310>>28321311>>28321368O-okay guys, stop making me feel all fuzzy inside.I'll try to do even better from now on.
>>28321523This feeling is why I QM.
>>28321523>I'll try to do even better from now on.That's impossible.
>>28321523>I'll try to do even better from now on.How about making it harder? Like don't give us a list of only positive options, or more rolls to resist falling back into old patterns, etc. Especially the last one seems very realistic.
>>28321570b-but I haven't even gotten to all the intriguing plot twists yet
>>28321523little late to this cuz of time change but, fuck ya. my first quest thread ever and from other comments a really good one. even got one of my choices used! and the park went unexpectedly well
>>28321801>Plot twistsI'm gonna need more booze for this.
>>28321801>plot twistsOh shit.
>>28321103>>28321523God damn it. Long live NEET Master. Long live Shower Quest. We shall be the saving grace of Tammy.But yeah, quest has been a little easy, as >>28321794 said. I kinda liked having Fear and Doubt around, or whatever his name was. Sure, he sounded like a damn creeper, but he voiced a side that has gone underrepresented due to /tg/'s desire to save Tammy.
>>28321801you make us love her then your going to horribly crush us. why would you do that to us NEET master? we even banded together to make a job aplication
>>28321794>How about making it harder?I've been thinking about how to do this.The problem with implementing the risk of relapses through rolls is that the quest can end up going nowhere. You build up some personal development in Tammy, and then one bad roll destroys it all. Then you build it all up again, and then it falls back again. Before you know it the month is over, and we've gotten nowhere. That wouldn't work.And if I gave a list of both positive and negative options, you guys would always end up picking the positive one anyway. What's the point of a quest with negative progression?Adding some change of pace through the story itself seems the only way, an example being Chris and the photo in the basement. And as Tammy gradually grows, the stuff I throw at her have to grow gradually worse, too.Besides, I like writing positive stuff. For now.Sorry if it's wrong to discuss this. I have yet to learn the etiquette of QM's, seeing as this is my first quest.
>>28321953its your quest thread so if you try to cater to use and end up not enjoying it yourself, then its pointless.
>>28321953It's generally considered cool and fine to discuss this stuff between 'active Questing'. Doing it during the Questing leads to a disjointed conversation.
>>28321953If the month comes along and we've failed it can always turn into Homeless NEET quest where she finds a strapping young man willing to take her in and rehabilitate her or something.
>>28322007Oh, I love it. It's challenging in a good way, and writing is an amazing way of expressing oneself.It's like building a daughter and grow fond of her, then decide what gruesome way to use today to make her hurt and suffer.
>>28322059well keep up the great work. this newfag to quest threads is enjoying it.
>>28322059>It's like building a daughter and grow fond of her, then decide what gruesome way to use today to make her hurt and suffer.Please. Please no.
>>28321953No, how dare you speak of such thi-Yes, NM, it's fine. At least, as far as I know. Which isn't much.It's fine that you like writing positive stuff. It really comes out in her moments of happiness, even some of her more depressing moments. However, what makes it a game is the threat of failure. Sure, we could guide her to general mental health and social stability in 30 days... but what if we can't? What if we push ourselves a little too hard, and break during an important moment, or even just a temporary one?It gives us something to struggle against. It's a hard balance, of course. You've got the basics of it, though.
>>28322171>What if we push ourselves a little too hard, and break during an important moment, or even just a temporary one?That's definitely a way to make it challenging. I try to add this with rolls, but it seems that I'm either too soft on the results or that you guys are too good rollers. I would like other ways to add challenge, but I need to come up with them first.I believe my main problem is that my ideas vary between incredible feel good stuff, and way too fucking brutal stuff to throw at Tammy now without causing major damage.
>>28322264>or that you guys are too good rollers.Ha!
>>28322264The way you're doing it (e.g. DC 15, only uneven rolls count) the probabilty of faling that is pretty low. But keep going, /tg/ dice will show themselves soon enough.
>>28322264well some one did roll a 100 on a 1d100 to eat spaghetti...
>>28322389Actually eat, not metaphorically.
>>28323091yup they used time stop and everything.>>28316389>>28316520
>>28322264A very common example of failure for a neet is to fall back into an old habit for a day or so, it doesn't have to be huge, but one thing I used to do when I gave up is just lay in bed all day. You could have her wake up, fail a roll, and then decide to sleep till dinner and then have the rest of the 'day' that you narrate be from 5pm - 3am or something, rather than 9am - 11pm or whatever. Falling out of good habits is very common on recovering shut-ins.
Can we have Tammy browse something other that /r9k/ from now on? Seems like it's making the browse internet option completely useless considering we want her to become less of a loser.
Why don't we get her into traditional games? Work at local game store and find a party of neckbeards to play with.
>>28323423>Can we have Tammy browse something other that /r9k/ from now on?Yeah. Even if it's just like /v/ or some shit, at least it's different than just browsing /r9k/.
>>28324982How about /tg/?
>>28325081>How about /tg/?Maybe.
>>28325126How will she be after that?
>>28326356Not willing to visit any other board, because she doesn't need them.She will also participate in NEETQuest.
>>28327303>She will also participate in NEETQuest.That's too fucking meta for my tastes.
>>28327391People say this hits quest close to home.Who do you think those people are?
>>28327548Are we all a dream of a NEET girl thinking about life in terms of a CYOA to better cope?!Christ, brb taking a shower.
>>28327685>Christ, brb taking a shower.That's so Tammy of you.Think recursion.
>>28327303>She will also participate in NEETQuest.however she will not realise that it is about her and will only shitpost.
>>28327810>however she will not realise that it is about her and will only shitpost.Okay, now that's pretty fucking funny.
>>28327685Wrong.One NEET tries to fix his life, and in his free time participates in a NEETquest on /tg/. In that quest, a NEET tries to fix her life, and in her free time, participates in a NEETquest on /tg/.Tammy is but one link in the chain, one turn of the great wheel.It's NEETs all the way down.
>>28327984>It's NEETs all the way down.
Should we be keeping this up or waiting for him to make a new thread later?
>>28330025i dont know what is auto sage limit?
>>28330055We aren't there yet though I don't think. 4chan x turns the post count red when we hit it I'm pretty sure.
>>28330072hmm i dont know what time he starts i keeped this tabed all day
>>28330082Picked up earlier at ~0200 4chan time.Still got like 4 hours, assuming we can go by that.
>>28330479meh well if it does 404 or another one starts i guess ill just ctrl+4 for NEET on catalog
Morning. New thread coming up in ~2 hours.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ei2izPLpHc
>>28331441Sorry, scratch that. Today is going to be busy at work. Questing will have to wait until tomorrow.
>>28327984By that logic it's also /tg/'s all the way down.Imagine the shit we could get done if we found a way to communicate.
Is it just me, or does Tammy appear to be an unkempt pile of slag at the moment?Shouldn't we make sure she's neat before she goes out an apply for a job? Like, get some proper clothes, a haircut, and perhaps do some pushups and squats?
>>28334874yeah why is she an anime and not a fatty?
>>28335413Because instead off binging on food, she'd more or less stopped eating out of apathy.
>>28335488She should still be flabby from lack of exercise.
>>28335504She really shouldn't.Source: tonnes of nerds, myself included, and browsing /fit/ for a while.
>>28335413People like Tammy are either whales or twigs. Strangely enough it seems that the NEET girls tend far more towards the second category, whilst NEET men tend towards the first.
>>28335858NEET men eat ice cream and cookies to make themselves feel better...no I'm not talking from experience...
>>28338193>no I'm not talking from experienceSure you aren'tBut why is this restricted to men only? Ice-cream and cookies make NEET girls feel better just as well, no?
>>28332542It should be "I and the futon are married" (or "the futon and I"). Me is incorrect.Compare "Me am married" and "I am married."
>>28338227Men and women have different metabolism, anon.
>>28338278When people refer to themselves and somebody else they usually use me, like "Me and Sandra are traitorous whores"
>>28338341That's wrong, though. To check for the correct term, separate the sentence out. "Sandra is a traitorous whore. I am a traitorous whore. Sandra and I are traitorous whores."
>>28338227Neither men 'nor women will eat regular healthy mealsNEET Men supplement their lack of a diet by subsisting on soda and snack foods. NEET Women, I guess, don't. Which means they don't eat.
>>28338354Yes, but it's the dialogue of a girl that thinks she's married to a futon.The goal of dialogue isn't to be grammatically correct. It's to sound realistic, and to help characterize the speaker.
>>28335513Hey when is this quest going to get up and kicking, come on let's advance the story.
