Gobble, I love you and all, but could you be a little more specific in the twitter, please?
>>30736750I love it when he tells us afternoon central time like its a real specific time frame.
>>30736820No it's just "in a few hours" and I'm sitting here hitting f5 on the catalog every ten minutes once two hours has passed, or something.
You think over it, but decide on Trunks and Raistlin. You release them from their Pokeballs. They’re still in rough shape from their battle before. Without using the revives, they’re not in any condition to battle, but they’re both looking better after using potions.Trunks cuddles against your ankle while Raistlin stares off into space.“Hey guys. We’re going to be gathering some berries today. It’s a contest, so we’ll have to work as quickly as possible.” Raistlin gives a subtle affirmative nod, and Trunks floats up a bit to assess the rows of greenery.You see that Vance has his Sneasel and Stunky out. Robin selected Eevee and Joltik. Jeanine is helping Vance with his pep talk to his Pokemon, but it doesn’t look like she’s participating herself.Before the contest begins, you double check on the posters with the rules. It seems simple enough. You have a time limit to collect as many berries as possible, you’re limited to two Pokemon at a time, attacking other trainers or their Pokemon is not allowed, and prizes are given out for first, second, and third place.You look down the rows and rows of trees. You’ll have to decide what your starting strategy will be quickly before the contest starts.>Gather as many as you can yourself, you trust Trunks and Raistlin to do their own thing>Don’t gather any yourself, direct Raistlin and Trunks entirely>Raistlin is really smart, he can figure out a plan by himself. Gather some berries and direct Trunks>Trunks probably has an instinct for this sort of thing. Gather some berries and direct Raistlin>Something else>>30736750Timeline wise? Sorry about that. I was given a vague timeline myself for things I had to do today so I wasn't entirely sure. I'll try be more specific for next time.
>>30736951>Gather as many as you can yourself, you trust Trunks and Raistlin to do their own thing
>>30736951>Something else>Have Raistlin use confusion to high berries, while Trucks and you gather low berries
>>30736951>Trunks probably has an instinct for this sort of thing. Gather some berries and direct Raistlintelekinesis the berries over here
>>30736840trunks hornleech the trees to knock berries of, Raistlin use's confusion to gather them all up.
>>30736951Nice to hear you're feeling better gobbles
>>30737019Well look at you being courteous and all.
>>30737068You should always be nice to the people who handle your food, your money and your yuri mindedPokemon quests
>>30737108Was I criticizing?[spolier] the answer is no [/spoiler]
>>30737143Did I sound dickish?Sorry I didn't mean too. Jokes around mate
>>30737143Well, that's embarrasing.It's like drawing the the blinds while changing and it turns out their see-through.
>>30737179Boy I'm just fucking everything up today.Don't let me do any rolls, would you?
>>30737205I'll try my best to stop you
>>30736951>Direct both of them at first to make sure they understand their task>Then focus on gathering as many berries as possible
"Alright, I'm mostly going to let you both do your own thing, but I have a few ideas too. Trunks, your Horn Leech might be able to knock down a lot of berries. Raistlin, you can get to the high or difficult to reach berries with your powers, so try to focus on that."Trunks nods his understanding. Raistlin gives no reaction, but you can tell he's listening.The announcer asks everyone to take their places at the starting line. Each team is given two baskets and heads to the edge of the starting line.You see Robin on your left. She gives you a nice, happy smile. To your right, Vance is giving you a thumbs up, but he gets distracted when Jeanine yells a cheer to him."On your mark. Get set. Go!"There are a few dozen people participating. In the rush though, it feels like a stampede. You do your best to get out of the crowd so you're not cut off from any trees.Raistlin just levitates and increasingly large floating ball of berries, mostly plucking them with his mind from the obscure spots. You wonder how big it'll get before he can't control it. There's only a handful in there now, but he doesn't look like he's planning to use a basket.Trunks indeed has an instinct for the best spots. He’s not particularly fast, but he zones in on the trees with the most ripe berries. You see he's knock them down just like you said.You quickly glance around to see how everyone else is doing. (continued)
>>30737517You don't stop picking while you look. You're pickpocketing days have taught you how to precisely grab something without having to look at it directly. A few strangers have varying degrees of success, but there are only two or three that look like an immediate threat. Robin seems to be just behind you in terms of berries gathered. Eevee is moving quickly and gathering everything within reach but isn’t particularly effective, even if it's fast. Joltik is using it’s webs to get at the hard-to-reach ones. Robin seems to just be trying to have fun and isn’t that concerned with winning.You’ve lost track of where he got to, but looking the baskets of his Pokemon Vance is probably ahead of you. Stunky is using slashing moves on the bushes with surprising precision. His Sneasel is dashing between trees and between other people and Pokemon at incredible speeds. Wait. You saw something as it zoomed by. Sneasel is stealing berries from other people and Pokemon! He’s good at it too. The only reason you caught it is because of your own experience. You doubt anyone else will notice it before the end of the contest.Vance isn’t in the immediate area. He couldn’t have gotten too far though.>Take time to find and tell Vance now. It’ll slow you down though>Stop what you’re doing and tell Robin. She can find Vance. She’s not trying to win anyways.>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!>Something else
>>30737606>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!He probably went into the bushes.
>>30737606>Take time to find and tell Vance now. It’ll slow you down thoughSneasel snitchin'
>>30737606>>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!
>>30737606>Take time to find and tell Vance now. It’ll slow you down though
>>30737606>>Take time to find and tell Vance now. It’ll slow you down thoughFucking friendship coming with fucking responsibilities.
>>30737606>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!We can tell it to Vance if we come across him. Meanwhile let the mischevious little monster have some fun.
>>30737642>>30737666>>30737678> Implying he doesn't know what's going on> Implying he isn't playing to winYou guys are starting to sound like Junior Besides, there's nothing in the rules that says you're not allowed to steal. You're just mad you didn't think of it first
>>30737606Shouldn't there be an official to stop this sort of stuff? We should go tell that guy, rat on Sneasel afterwards
>>30737717Nah man, it's really just sneasel's thing.Tell Vance afterwards, though.
>>30737716That's exactly why I wanna stop it! We should have thought of it.
>>30737606>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!
>30737606>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!
>>30737606>>30737716>You’ll worry about it later, you can win this!
You're a little conflicted on this one, but decide you'll figure it out later. You have a real chance to win this thing. Trunks is already almost ready to trade in his basket for a new one. Raistlin just dipped out of sight for a second, but his ball of berries was looking pretty big. You're picking fairly fast yourself too.Just as you're getting confident about it, you feel something slam into your back, knocking you over and spilling your berries."Sorry! My mistake!" It's a girl a little younger than you, but almost as big. She was one of the few people that looked like a threat. Both her voice and her body language shows she's not sincere. It'll take you precious time to collect them up again. "Tough break. Accidents happen though, right?" She flashes and smile and starts heading off to help her Pikachu collect more berries.>You're not out, just gather them up and keep going>"Accidentally" knock her basket over. Teach her a lesson>Steal some of her berries>Rat on her to a judge>Something else
>>30738155>"Accidentally" knock her basket over. Teach her a lessonWho-ho-ho-fuck-you!
>>30738155>Steal some of her berriesDo it subtlyThen knock her basket over.
>>30738155>Steal some of her berries
Geez,is everyone on a lunch break or something?
>>30738155>Steal some of her berriesPayback time!
>>30738155>>Steal some of her berries

>>30738155>You're not out, just gather them up and keep goingKat isn't who she used to be Sooo yeah lets not be a bitch here.
>>30738182Seconding this. Steal, then sabatoge
>>30738155>Steal ALL of her berriesYou are in for it now bitch
>>30738317I change my vote to>>30738290
>>30738155>>"Accidentally" knock her basket over. Teach her a lessonquid pro quoand get away from her fast in case pulls the sweet and innocent victim routine
>>30738155>something elseHave raistlin trip her.
You can't let that go. You remember that you promised Robin you'd only steal in desperate situations or from bad people. Sabatoging you in a friendly contest like this sounds like a bad person to you. As quick as you can without looking suspicious, you maneuver in behind her. You pick up a large stick on your way over. You have a plan.Stealing the berries gives you an old familiar thrill. You're in broad daylight, in the middle of a crowd, and just snatching them by the handful before she even notices your presence. You've gotten a surprising amount off of her so far.Just as you're about to grab another handful, you feel eyes on you. You glance up and see her Pikachu in one of the trees. It points at you and starts to make noise."What is it Pikachu?" The girl begins to turn around to see what Pikachu is pointing at. You have to act now! You take the stick and very quickly toss it between her feet as she turns, and take a few steps back. She's big for her age, but you're still faster. She trips over it just like you expected, spilling her remaining berries everywhere and landing face first on the ground.She's devastated. "You did this!" She points up at you.You mockingly put up your hands defensively. "You tripped over the stick. You should be more careful. Accidents happen, right?"(continued)
>>30738872Shit's going down.
>>30738872Just as you say that, the buzzer rings out over the area. "Time’s up folks! Please stop collecting berries and make your way back to the judging station."The girl stays on the ground when you start heading back. She's not physically hurt, but she's taking it really hard. Jeez, it's just a contest. She shouldn't have started it by pushing you if she couldn't handle the same treatment.You had back to the judges area with all of your berries. Raistlin has a huge-looking ball floating over his head, and Trunks' basket is overflowing. They really did well.Robin has a decent amount, but you don't think she'll win. Vance and his team have a lot too, but not as much as you would have thought based on his early lead.The judges take awhile to weigh everyone's pickings. When they come back though, they call out your number. Second place! They give you a basket full of prizes.Candles scented like berries, a bit of Star Dust in a small glass vial, and a Dragon Scale, a Thunderstone, Waterstone, and Firestone.Robin hugs you in congratulations, and then so does Vance. Jeanine gives you a casual "Good job.">Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everything>Tell Vance about his Sneasel. He probably wouldn't approve>Go find that girl and rub it in>Something else
>>30738928>Something elsego get something to eat to celebrate!
>>30738928>>Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everything>>Tell Vance about his Sneasel. He probably wouldn't approvemake sure to mention why we did what we did before we explain what it was
>>30738928>Tell Vance about his Sneasel. He probably wouldn't approveDon't sound negative though, compliment his sneasel
>>30738928>Go find that girlBut hand her one of the elemental stones.She started it, but we got even. No hard feelings.
>>30738928>>Something elseParty time, treat everyone, maybe get drunk again.
>>30738928>>Tell Vance about his Sneasel. He probably wouldn't approve>Tell Robin whole story with the girl. We know how to get back at a bitch.
>>30738928>>Something elseget some lunch/dinner just have fun don't for get to congratulate our Pokemon
>>30738928>Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everything>Tell Vance about his Sneasel. He probably wouldn't approve
>>30738928>Something elseLet's go celebrate!Later this evening we can>Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everything
>>30738928Go find the girl and give her an elemental stone
>>30738928>>30738974I second this, give her a good lecturing.Then hand her a thunder stone for keeping the contest interesting.
>>30738928>Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everythingAnd if she doesn't, that's fun too.
>>30738955this. no need to make drama where there is no need to
>>30738928>>Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everything>>Tell Vance about his Sneasel. He probably wouldn't approveEh. Why not, hopefully it wont blow up in our faces...too much.
>>30738974>>30739053secondingthen we should tell Robin in private
>>30738928>Something elseGo find something else to do, we're done here.
>>30739124But why would we give her something for trying to screw us over?
>>30739146because we screwed her over a whole lot worse, and this way she (probably us too) learns a lesson about fucking over strangers
>>30739146It's probable that it was an accident. Going and speaking with them can determine if this is the case or not.
>telling Robin we cheatedwhy are you trying to fuck up the relationship you guys fucking worked so slavishly over?is this drama leads to cuddling BS mentality? cuz she already wants it drama not needed.
>>30739185>>30739190She could do something aggressive toward us though, she wasn't exactly a happy camper
>>30739204>keeping secrets from our girlfriendbad choice anon
>>30739204she also told us not to hide things from her.
>>30739204Right? She doesn't even have to know, she has literally no inkling, but /tg/ is going to be like> this is what adults do>>30739221She is never going to find out
>>30739204We promised her we wouldn't keep secrets from her
>>30739185she already learned did, anon.
>>30739146Because we won 2nd off of screwing her over way harder. We want to believe people can change when shown a little kindness and why would we want to collect enemies?
>>30738928>Privately tell Robin you stole the berries, she'll understand if you explain everything
>>30739243why do you want to coddle people and deny them challenge and adversity to overcome on their own?
>>30739233I won't say its what adults do, but relationships are based on trust. And she will find out.
>>30739233She might if the other girl presses the issue. So we either tell Robin or confront the stranger with a bit of kindness.
>>30739303Only way she'll find out is if that girl tells her what happened. And that girl doesn't even know she was stolen from.Worst case is that she'll accuse you of tripping her over. And even then there are no witnesses other than the Pikachu and the accuser.
>>30739300Because I'm not truly interested in seeing her grow as a person. I'm more concerned with covering my own ass.
>>30739377whiny child upset over losing blames other people.no smoking gun.
>>30739407I bet you cried to your mother every time you did something bad, even if you never did anything wrong.
>>30739204It's not even like we cheated to help us win, we just cheated to make that other girl lose. We would have collected more berries by ignoring her and just continuing to pick them.
>>30739463But! We did cheat.
>>30739463Pretty much this. We put a cheating girl in her place, actually losing time ourselves. We compensated by stealing from her too, but still.
>>30739407But we still run the risk of being confronted in front of Robin. Which will create questions, and we've been unable to lie in front of her before. And if we did tell Robin about it there's a decent chance she'd want us to apologize anyways.
>>30739443I bet you don't use coasters.
>>30739505is she even suspicious?why didn't she confront us now?
>>30739511That was uncalled for.
>Lawful stupid street thief amazing what a waifu can do to people
>>30739599Love's a fucky thing.
>>30739185PffNo need to lecture her about it. What the hell are we, some kind of responsible adult?
"How does everyone feel about celebrating with some lunch?" Everyone nods in agreement. First though, you need to talk to Vance and Robin. You also can't forget to give your Pokemon the praise they deserve."You both did great! I'm really proud of you!" You give Raistlin and Trunks a pat on the head. They really knocked it out of the park. Trunks cuddles up against you. He's really happy. Raistlin looks like he's in a good mood too, you think. He looks tired though. Mentally juggling those berries must have taken a lot out of him. Still, it must have been a good learning experience.Vance and Robin are congratulating their Pokemon too. Vance is petting Sneasel when you say something too him. "Vance, before you congratulate him too much, I have to tell you something."He keeps petting Sneasel and looks up at you. "What is it?" Sneasel is giving you the stink eye already."Well, I saw him stealing berries from other people and Pokemon. He was really fast, and really clever about it though. So there's that." You try to keep it positive.Vance looks down at his Sneasel. "Is this true?" Sneasel crosses his arms defiantly. Vance gives him a stern look. "We'll talk about this later Sneasel."That wasn't so bad. Now to explain to Robin-Jeanine steps in between you and Vance. "When did you see this happen?" You don't like her tone."During the contest." Where is she going with this?Jeanine crosses her arms. "And you just waited until after to say something? How do you think Vance would feel if he had won and found out it was because of Sneasel cheating?" Jeanine gets right in your face.Robin and Vance both look uncomfortable at the confrontation.>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomatic>Is she really getting in your face about this? Tell her off.>"Vance, back me up here.">Something else[The other votes from the previous post will still happen and still count.]
>>30739537Could be any number of reasons. Maybe she's calling in backup or formulating the perfect revenge. I don't know this girl. But mitigating potential backlash at least seems like a good idea. Besides we have no need of Thunder Stone unless Robin suddenly decides she NEEDS a Jolteon
>>30739489Yeah. I do think we should tell Robin, but we should be telling her that we sabotaged someone who sabotaged us, not just saying 'mwahaha, I cheated!'
>>30739647>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomaticOH SHIT'S GOING DOWN
>>30739647>>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomaticNot judging aura types my ass
>>30739647>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomaticIt was some pretty good stealing, as well.
>>30739647>Is she really getting in your face about this? Tell her off."Bitch please. Sneasel needs to learn to take orders. if he don't listen to Vance, why the hell would he listen to me?"
>>30739647>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomatic
>>30739647"Because he wasn't going to beat me."
>>30739647>>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomaticdammit woman we are trying to hook you up with your childhood friend cut us some slack.
>>30739647well we sure as fuck don't mention our thievery after this."I was trying to win no time"
>>30739647>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomatic"What did you want me to do? Attack it?"
>>30739647>Vance wasn't around"Vance wasn't around, and some girl slammed me in the back a few seconds after I noticed, so I had other issues."
>>30739736We can mention it to Robin, just make damn sure Jeanine isn't around to hear.
>>30739647>Just explain. Vance wasn't around. It's not your fault. Be diplomatic>>30739732>>30739736you're idiots
>>30739668Tell her we sabotaged someone who sabotaged us, and that we're going to apologize.
>>30739811Better, tell her we sabotaged someone who sabotaged us, and ask her how she thinks we should apologize
>>30739811>>30739807y'all the dummies here
>>30739851If we have to tell Robin this sounds like the best plan so far.
>>30739857No YOU'RE dumb.It would be good to paint us in the better light though.
>>30739851this sounds good
>>30739736>>30739732Do not say this. It makes us come off as a massive bitch
>>30739851this is turrible
>>30739925Go on and explain how it is turrible.
>>30739900We must establish ourselves as the alpha bitch.But in seriousness any sort of challenging behavior towards her probably increases Vance's chances of getting laid tonight. And we do owe him.
>>30739811fuck no just don't bring it up
>>30739953we don't need to say shit about it at all it should be a non issue just forget it and keep going
>>30739953at least one person confirmed to be a huge bitch over this and we're unsure of how Robin would react.just wait till later and K and R are alone if you A holes abso fucking lutley must confess over this
>>30739851This is probably the best option. We basically have to tell Robin, and this makes us sound more like we were trying to teach them a lesson and less like we were stealing to win which is what just saying we took berries would be like
>>30739925>>30739985Y'all are retarded.There's a chance the gal might come find us, yelling and screaming about what we did and challenging us to a battle. This would probably upset Kat a lot more than being honest. It's not very likely but covering our bases is a good thing.
>>30740021wasn't the vote to tell Robin in private?
>>30740050SHE HAS NO FUCKING CONCRETE PROOF and we can just tattle backwardand running up screaming and crying ain't gonna help her accusation.innocent till proven guilty is a thing.Jesus guys, its a berry picking contest, not the Black Sox Scandal
>>30740050*Meant Robin, not Kat.
>>30740064I think so.C'mon guys, calm down. This isn't the end of the world.
>>30740050fuck that bitch she started it and IF she does after we kick her ass we can tell robin not before also don't use Y'all and call the other person retarded. cause Y'all sounds retarded as fuck
>>30740105But Robin will know. She knows we can steal and she knows we're good enough to not leave proof.
>>30740156then we just get away from her.its why I voted to go a restaurant, to get some separation from her and avoid potential drama
You slowly, deliberately take a step back to emphasize how close she is to your face. "Vance wasn't around at the time."Jeanine keeps moving forward. "You could have found him. It's not exactly a maze.""Maybe eventually, but then I would have lost. Is it really something Vance needed that second? Wouldn't he feel worse if I lost because I had to find him?" You try to keep your voice calm and your tone reasonable. You'll solve this by trying to be logical and without starting a fight. Robin would appreciate that, right?Vance steps between the both of you before anything else is said. "Look. It's fine. Kat, I appreciate you telling me. I don't think there was much that could have been done at the time. Jeanine, I appreciate your concern, but it's all right."Her expression starts to soften. You kept your cool and she's looking like the bad guy in front of Vance. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make a big deal out of it." Vance takes her aside for a minute to talk privately.You take Robin aside too. "I have something to tell you. I need you to promise not to judge until you hear the whole thing, alright?"Robin nods. You begin explaining what happened between you and that other girl. She does her best not to say anything until you're done."Do you think you would have won second place if you didn't take her berries?"You take a second to answer. "I think so. Maybe even first." You're telling the truth. You were doing really well."Well, I can't say she didn't deserve it I guess..." Robin says. She doesn't seem upset. She kisses you on the cheek. "Thanks for telling me right away. It means a lot to know I can trust you."Almost on cue, you spot the girl with her Pikachu walking from the berry trees towards the festival. You point her out to Robin. "She looks so sad." Robin is such a softie.>You're done here. Lunch time!>Try to talk to the girl. You're on a streak with being friendly>Change the subject, ask what Robin thinks of Jeanine>Something else

>>30740372>Try to talk to the girl. You're on a streak with being friendly>ask what Robin thinks of Jeanine
>>30740372See? Things are fine. Let's ask what she thinks of Jeanine. Maybe mention that we think she might like Vance. We should probably help him out in that department.
>>30740650>she might like Vance>might>maybe>not certain
>>30740372>>You're done here. Lunch time!
>>30740650anon, she wants him to ruin her.not fuck her, but ruin her. ruin her for any other potential partner
You hug Robin. You can't believe how lucky and happy you are to have her. She's just so damn sweet, and smart, and cute. She's like an adorable pixie. Well, a Fairy, based on her aura reading.You glance over to Jeanine and Vance talking. You expected them to be fighting or something, but they're already looking like they're joking around. "What do you think of Jeanine?"Robin puts her finger on her mouth and thinks. "She seemed a lot nicer during the reading. It didn't seem like she was faking it either. I don't think she likes you that much. She's really protective of him against you. But why?"Adorable. You lead her the rest of the way there. "She likes him."You can almost hear the cogs turn. "Oh!" You have no idea how someone so smart can be so slow sometimes. Robin turns to you. "She's jealous of you! Wait. Why is she jealous of you?" You think she's almost going to accuse you of something. She puts her hands to her chest. "Why isn't she jealous of me too?""I don't think it's jealousy. She thinks I'm taking advantage of Vance or something." Robin looks a lot less insecure after you tell her that."She's just needs to get to know the real you." She smiles at you. Yup. If not a pixie or a fairy, then she's definitely some sort of magical.You keep glancing over at the other girl. You might as well settle that while she's around. You and Robin head over to her."I'm sorry Pikachu. We'll find a different Thunderstone." Ugh. Of course it had to be some sob story. Still doesn't excuse her from starting it though. She looks at you suspiciously. "What do want?"What you really want is to get this over with already and get some lunch.>Offer the Thunderstone>Offer an apology>Don't bring it up, just chat>Something else
>>30741096>>Offer the Thunderstone>>Offer an apology
>>30741096>>Offer the Thunderstone
>>30741096>>Offer the Thunderstone"no hard feelings?"we have the other one anywaycan we pull this tooth and move on?
>>30741096>Something else"Nothing." Then walk awayWe owe her nothing.
>>30741096>>Offer the Thunderstonetell her that we know from experience that cheating takes you down a bad road
>>30741096>>Offer the ThunderstoneDon't apologize unless she does so first
>>30741096>Offer the Thunderstone
>>30741096>Offer the ThunderstoneThan walk away. Be a boss.We don't have anything to apologize for anyway.
>>30741096>Offer the Thunderstone>Offer an apology
>>30741096>>Offer the Thunderstone>Offer an apology"sorry your such a brat"
>>30741096>Offer a Thunderstone"If it's a Thunderstone you wanted, I've got one."
>>30741096>Just chat>If she seems apolegetic, offer the thunderstone>Else keep it
>>30741096>>Don't bring it up, just chatIf you can't handle reprisal, you don't cheat. Kid's got no-one to blame but herself, and we shouldn't fall for her pitiful sob story.What, you thought she miraculously says that just when the one person she knows has a thunderstone is standing right there?
Don't you think we're being a little hasty with just handing over the thunderstone?
>>30741096>Offer the Thunderstone>>30741275Eh, it's just a stone.
>>30741275we got 2 dude and nothing to use em on anyway.I ain't crazy about talking it up with the brat either but just let the paladins have their way on this or they'll be cranky all day
>>30741275nobody we travel with needs it
>>30741350Still, would say it isn't like us, even on a nice streak, to just hand it over. I'm not against handing it over, but not just right of the back.
>>30741392we stopped being a rogue and became a paladin a long long time ago friend
>>30741392Thus >>30741236I'd like to figure out if she's as much of a fussy bitch as she seems.
>>30741429I wouldn't call us a paladin.
>>30741096Ask her about her desire for a thunderstone. let us judge her reasoning behind it... maybe we could make a deal with her...
>>30741478going out of our way to apologize is pretty paladin
>>30741487she wants one because its the only way to make her pikachu not suck
>>30741546Not really, more like just becoming a better person.Would we be doing this if we weren't in front of Robin?
>>30741585yes. We wouldn't be doing it if Robin hadn't shown us we can be better than street trash
>>30741585tg likes being shounen as fuck, so yes
>>30741585basically >>30741617Robin's still the reason, but it's more we want to deserve her as opposed to us wanting to show we're a good person.
>>30741585I'd like to think no.If we're just doing it to try and get laid, that makes the choice a little more bearable.
>>30741703this I can dig>>30741668this sappy crap makes me roll my eyes
>>30741721Yeah, it's pretty gay
>>30741875We are dating another girl you realize.
>>30741898pretty sure he meant gay as in the sophomoric slang for stupid and or lame
"Here," you toss her the Thunderstone, then start walking away. You already have one, it's not a big deal."Wait," she yells after you. You make sure to position yourself in front of Robin, just in case. "I'm sorry. I really wanted the Thunderstone for Pikachu. I've had him for a long time and feel like I'm holding him back by not helping him evolve. I guess that got to my head."You know she's not that sorry. You remember how confident she was when she knocked you over. If anything, you're here just to keep this from festering into something worse. That and maybe to make Robin happy, you guess. Maybe you feel bad about how fun stealing was? You're a little concerned that you're not sure about your own motivations, but you go through the motions."I'm sorry too, I guess. You got it worse anyway." There's a long awkward pause. You want to say something cool or helpful. "Y'know, you could have stolen the berries, you would have gained more while still putting me behind."She laughs. It's just such a bizarre conversation. "No way, I'd get caught for sure.""I wasn't." You half joke, half brag. You can at least give advice. "It's all about distractions."She thinks for a second. "Oh! I could have knocked your basket over, and then a little bit of my own on the same spot, then shove most of them back into my own basket.""Now you're getting it!" You give her a high five. Robin is looking confused and concerned. "But uh, stealing is wrong."You say goodbye and head back to Vance and Jeanine.(continued)
>>30741096>Offer the Thunderstone >Offer an apology
>>30742015Robin looks up at you. "I never thought of it as something you could teach." She's quiet enough that nobody else hears. "Believe it or not, I think that it's cool. I mean, in a way. You seem like a natural teacher."Well, true to her word, she isn't getting judgmental on you. You are a bit surprised she's impressed though. Then again, you do remember her being impressed back when you showed her how to sneak into the museum that one time. Maybe she has a weird side that enjoys that you're a bit of a wild child? Dating a girl is confusing.The four of you find a nice little spot to enjoy your lunch. You let out your Pokemon, except Leviathan still, to enjoy some treats as well.>Talk to Vance privately, figure out how he feels about Jeanine>Talk to Jeanine, what's her plan after the festival?>Talk to Robin (write-in)>Let Leviathan out too. The festival has loads of Pokemon snacks you can feed her.>Something else
>>30742093>Talk to Jeanine, what's her plan after the festival?Let's see if she intends to go with us.
>>30742093>>Talk to Jeanine, what's her plan after the festival?4 team members. seems like a good idea. plus that way Vance can have his own bed warmer.
>>30742093>Talk to Jeanine, what's her plan after the festival?
>>30742093>Talk to Vance privately, figure out how he feels about JeanineIf she's gonna be all up in our bizz we need to know.
>>30742093>Offer the Thunderstone >Offer an apology
>>30742093>>Let Leviathan out too. The festival has loads of Pokemon snacks you can feed her.don't play favorites or odd ones out
>>30742159You know she might stick around to see if we're screwing over Vance.
>>30742093>Talk to Jeanine, what's her plan after the festival?"Vance gets lonely, you know."Talking to him in private would just make her suspicious. Letting Leviathan out is rude, there are probably children here that would be afraid of her, even if she was perfectly behaved.
>>30742093>Talk to Jeanine, what's her plan after the festival?Let's find out!
>>30742093... I guess Levi can come out, if she promises to behave herself.
So is anyone going to watch Cosmos with this?
>>30742093Talk to Vance
Hello? Monsieur Gobble?
[Sorry about the delay. Needed to help in the kitchen before there was fire. Will be faster now]Everyone is having a good time. Jeanine is finally letting go of her death grip on Vance and chatting up Robin and meeting some of the Pokemon. You take this chance to spark up a conversation with her."So Jeanine. What are your plans after the festival?"She pauses, then looks to Vance. He speaks up instead "That's actually something we wanted to talk to you two about. Jeanine invited me to stay with her and her mom for awhile." Your heart sinks. You don't like where this is going. "But I can't leave you guys. Besides, we're visiting my parents soon too, then probably my sister in Clairborough. So I wanted to ask if it was alright if she comes with us." Oh. That's better.Jeanine finally says something. "Vance's sister might be able to help me improve my aura reading. She was always so smart. Now that she's a Psychic gym leader, I'm sure she can help me learn more about my ability."That sounds a little flimsy, but you don't really know anything about that sort of thing, so it could very well be a good idea.Traveling with Jeanine might be rough if she keeps up the attitude towards you. She did seem really nice before Vance was in the picture. Maybe if you sees you actually helping Vance train she'll relax instead of being such a bitch to you.You look to Robin. She doesn't seem to have any objections.>Welcome aboard!>Welcome her aboard until you see Vance's sister.>Absolutely not>Politely find a reason why it's a bad idea (write-in encouraged)>Something else
>>30742956Gobble is kill
>>30742995>>Welcome aboard!>But we need to have a talk>we /u/
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!I don't see why not.
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!It'll be good for Vance
>>30742995>>Welcome aboard!Explain how there recently was a rule set about everyone having separate tents, offer no explanation.
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!Yaaaaaaaay...We're gonna have eyes booring into our backside now.
>>30743065We can share a tent with her.To make Robin jealous, to make Vance jealous, and to spend time with her so she can see what an angel we are and cool her ass off
>>30743041oh no you dont we already have someone this is vances time to shine when he realises she wants the D
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!The more the merrier.
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!If we lay it on thick enough with Robin, she should get the hint pretty fast. No need to actively support her getting with Vance until we get to know her better- she might not be good enough for him!
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!yeah baby shake up that group dynamic
>>30743100Okay whatever.Nevermind, we can just fuck with her while she doesn't know.
>>30743083Let's not but joke about doing so
>>30743137We should make the offer, in case she doesn't have a tent.
Rumors reach Vance's sister of him building a harem, we stop by her gym and she proceeds to beat the crap out of him.
>>30743119Time to deploy the secret weaponSet up the tents!
>>30743235And then we beat the crap out of her.
>>30743277Implying kat could stop giggling long enough to stop her
>>30743235>not join them
>>30743309Because gym leader.Also, no one messes with our Vance.
>>30743277Dark-type domination. We're immune to psychics, right Gobble? That's how aura-reading works, surely.
>>30743336I don't think so, anon.
>>30743277Dark is super effective against psychic.Then again, psychic is super effective against poison. ROCKET TAG, HO
>>30742995>Welcome aboard!if you try and take robin from me Ill smash your face in with a rock
>>30743352Dark is immune to Psychic so it doesn't matter.The only thing a Dark/Poison type is weak against is Ground.
>>30743353in your sleep. because dark. and you are kind of buff, girl can get a feel, oooI think I want to mess with Jeanine now
>>30743441Being in our party means you are subject to our teasing.
>>30743460No one is safe.
>>30743482What if she gets fed up and punches us?
>>30743532Kat returns the favor then mud wrestling ensues
>>30743532Then she's out.
>>30743532Kat is revealed to be a master of Baguazhang circle walking due to practice shadowing and pocket-picking.
Sorry, alive. Had more more quick thing to take care of. Update coming soon
You extend your hand out to her. "Welcome aboard."Gingerly, she accepts. "Thanks. I'm sure it'll be fun." It must be throwing her off your you're remaining so friendly to her despite her attitude.Vance looks happy too. "It sure will! We have to go find your mom now. She still doesn't know, right?""Crap, you're right. She might not approve. I haven't traveled like this before."The four of you finish up dinner and head to her house, a short walk outside the festival grounds. Before you get all the way there though, Jeanine stops the group. "Wait." She starts fussing over Vance's hair, then adjusts his shirt to look proper. She moves over to Robin."What are you doing?" Vance asks her. Robin is too shy to say anything."I really want her to say yes. She needs to be cool with the people I'm traveling with."She moves on to you. You tell yourself that this is for Vance. She grooms you for a minute before she's satisfied.Finally, you move on to meet her mother. She looks like an older, shorter, stubbier version of Jeanine.Her mom greets Vance warmly. "You've gotten so big!"Jeanine introduces Robin, then you. Her mother invites you all in for drinks. She's very friendly and warm. Everything you expect a mother would be.Her mother catches up about Vance and his family for a few minutes before coming back to you and Robin. You didn't catch anything new in that conversation."I'm so sorry dears. I don't mean to ignore you. Tell me about yourselves."Robin looks uncomfortable at the question. She probably isn't that sure>You're a Pokemon trainer, don't speak for Robin>Tell her you're a Pokemon trainer, and so is Robin>You're an orphan trying to become a Pokemon trainer. You're currently loaded from gambling and are dating Robin. You're good at stealing. Robin stole her Houndour and punched a guy and went to jail too.>Something else
>>30744062>You're a Pokemon trainer, don't speak for Robin
>>30743731the curse strikes again>>30744062>>You're a Pokemon trainer, don't speak for Robin
So, are Kat's parents dead or did they just ditch her? Does she have any memories of them? Will they ever come up in the quest?
>>30744062>>You're an orphan trying to become a Pokemon trainer. You're currently loaded from gambling and are dating Robin. You're good at stealing. Robin stole her Houndour and punched a guy and went to jail too.why is this option soo GODAMNED TEMPTING!but we cant be stupid enough or evil enough to say this so i'll leave my vote with>You're a Pokemon trainer, don't speak for Robin
>>30744062>Something elseWe're a trainer, traveling with the first friends we made after leaving the orphanage. We're in town for the berry-picking festival. That's basically the short of it. Gets in all the relevant details.
>>30744154Orphan, probably the former.Who wouldn't want an angel like us?
>>30744062>Tell her you're a Pokemon trainer, and so is Robin in Vance's ever expanding harem
>>30744062>You're a Pokemon trainer, don't speak for RobinThird option would be hilarious, but she doesn't need to know that we average more than one run-in with the law daily.
>>30744202I don't know. Being an abandoned child would make her self-esteem issues make a whole lot more sense.
>>30744154They're the leaders of team cirrus cumulus
>>30744062>You're an orphan trying to become a Pokemon trainer. You're currently loaded from gambling and are dating Robin. You're good at stealing. Robin stole her Houndour and punched a guy and went to jail too.
>>30744237Yeah, I guess that's right, but wouldn't we be too young to remember anyway?I doubt being an orphan under any circumstance is self-esteem building.
Am I the only one that thinks this bitch is really irritating?Not a slight against your writing, Gobble, I think it's actually due to you writing very well.
>>30744326Nah, I like her
>>30744221>>Vance's ever expanding harem>>expanding haremyes please
>>30744295The underlying feeling that your parents didn't want you because you weren't good enough probably wouldn't go away.
>>30744372Maybe we don't know the circumstances of being orphaned?
>>30744326Eh. She's irritating because she's irritated with us.Gobble seems to have a habit of starting off Kat at odds with people like he did with Vance so I'm willing to see what kind of character she becomes after she chills out.
>>30744418>Gobble seems to have a habit of starting off Kat at odds with people like he did with VanceThat was all the players fault though.Not that I blame anyone considering we woke up naked in his bed
>>30744326>>30744354I'll like her much better when she finds out that Kat is an orphan with serious confidence issues, thus explaining the conflicted feelings she was projecting and making her feel like a hypocritical bitch for judging her entirely based on her aura without even bothering to get to know her.Even after she herself said that you shouldn't judge someone based on their aura, and that she can only tell what someone is projecting.
>>30744455It was a bit of both.Gobble wrote Kat as being suspicious and distrustful even without player prompt.
>>30744485Well we did wake up in a strangers bed, naked.Would you be cheery-ho after that?
>>30744417We don't. Not sure if Kat does.Kind of why I asked this >>30744154. Was kind of hoping for some confirmation from Gobble.
>>30744484She doesn't give a shit about the aura, she gives a shit about Vances strong ties to us, and our being a shitty person.
>>30744547Nah, leave it a mystery, for now.
>>30744523Of course not. I'm just saying Gobble made the situation what it was and the player's went along with it.I'm objecting to the phrase "that was all the player's fault" since both parties were equally involved.
>>30744603It was all the players fault though.
>>30744637Oh, don't start this now.
>>30744694It was. The players decided how to react, they decided how to keep reacting, they had the chance to go "Well okay then buddy!" but they didn't
>>30744523If it was a hot girl I would be like> YooooAnd then I would check if my bits were still attached
"I'm a Pokemon trainer," You show her your two badges. "I'm going to try to compete in the league." You let Robin answer for herself.Robin hesitates. "I'm a Pokemon trainer too, I guess. I used to help run a gym, but I...I'm a trainer now too." Surprisingly, Robin grabs a hold of your hand. "I'm a lot happier doing this now."Jeanine's mom looks touched. "I'm glad to hear it. Most people are a lot older before they switch out of a career they hate. Just be glad you don't have a mortgage." That gets a soft chuckle around the table. She's such a nice woman. You're a little jealous of Jeanine."Mom. I want to travel with them. I want to see the world and meet new people. I think I can really learn a lot.""I think that's a wonderful idea. More tea?"Jeanine looks bewildered. "Mom, I'm serious.""So am I. You've been cooped up here a long time now and I can tell you're itching to explore. I think it will be good for you to leave the nest for a bit. I'll miss you, but I'll manage."Jeanine hugs her mom tightly. "Thanks mom. I'll call every time I'm at a Pokemon center." After a few moments she heads to her room to pack up.After a short wait, Jeanine is ready to go. She says another goodbye to her mom.With everything wrapped up, your group steps out of Jeanine's house, and onto the road.>Wait, there was something else at the festival you wanted to do (write in)>Look for a trainer fight>Just cover distance. You're eager for to see Braundalin>Something else

>>30744891I like this.If she brings anyone out, scan it, for the lulz
>>30744818>Just cover distance. You're eager for to see BraundalinChat with Jeanine a bit and clear this shit up.
>>30744818>Look for a trainer fightwe need to get swole
>>30744818>>Just cover distance. You're eager for to see Braundalingit down 2 bizness
>BraundalinMan, that matchup sucks for us. Vlad is the only surefire shot, otherwise we've got to use neutral mons, or play risky using a team that's weak to one but strong against the other and trying to focus fire the vulnerability. Devon would resist the dark type and still be able to use fire just fine, so him and Vlad could try to annihilate the fighting type ASAP, before it murders Devon, we'd want to find out if either trainer ever uses a scraggy/scrafty, though. Trunks might work that way as well, but it is more risky, he's weak to dark and no one is SE against that except maybe some coverage moves like Devon's Counter which won't help in that scenario since the Dark type would be targeting Trunks. Confuse Ray could be really fun in a double match though, and if the Dark type is physical, then Will-o-Wisp makes it a lot less scary. Still risky though.
>>30745331We'll ask Vance about it later.The gym might have closed, remember Robin mentioned something about it.
>>30745331The only logical choice is to go with Vlad then switch into Levi and brute force our way through it.
>>30745331Neutrals are better than weak, at least.Don't get me wrong, being prepared for a gym we know is coming is good, but we can't just rely on type effectiveness to make us a good trainer. We need to learn how to deal with what we don't know is coming too.
>>30745425It's a double battle.But I forgot about Levi, yeah, she is the obvious second choice, resist and SE the fighting type.
>>30745500We'll need assurance of obedience from Levi, first.
>>30745523naturally, but I think we've made steps forward
>>30745618Somewhat, we hurt her feelings, but other then that she still seems too willing to try to wrest command from us.Also, she's mean to Robin.Also, are we going to rotate a fellow out of our party?
You get a good long distance towards Braundalin. After Aquapolis, walking on flat, regular ground seems so easy. Vance doesn't need to check the map anymore. He starts pointing out landmarks.You start walking alongside Jeanine. You figure you should get to know her if she's tagging along. There's a question you've been meaning to ask. "Do you have any Pokemon?"She takes a second to respond. "I don't."There doesn't seem to be any follow up, so you press. "How come? I mean, we should get to know each other right? I don't really feel like we know each other as well as we should." You hammer the point home. You don't feel like she's treating you fairly. A simple aura reading or whatever isn't much.Vance is way up ahead. He yells that he knows a cool spot to camp for the night. Robin catches up to him. You and Jeanine are in the back following by a large enough distance to talk freely.She sighs. "I had a starter once. It got sick. I haven't had any since. It's just not for me." She looks dead ahead. "Look. It was a long time ago. I got over it." She looks to you now. "I can't really tell you a sob story that you probably couldn't beat. Vance mentioned you're an orphan."You know she's deflecting, but what you don't know is if you should let her.You can see Vance and Robin have started unpacking at a clearing up ahead.>You never knew your parents. It wasn't that hard.>It sucked, but you're doing great now.>Change the subject. Ask what she thinks about Robin.>Something else
>>30745686>>You never knew your parents. It wasn't that hard.muh tough girl facade
>>30745686>Change the subject.Ask if she's met Vance's sister.

>>30745729Whoops, Disregard the >>It sucked, but you're doing great now.Didn't mean to paste that
>>30745686>It sucked, but we're doing greatI mean, we actually found friends who are fine with our past.
>>30745686"And yet here I am... I leant that sometimes sharing the past opens the future..."
>>30745686>Change the subject. Ask what she thinks about Robin.or this>>30745728
>>30745686>You never knew your parents. It wasn't that hard.
>>30745686Not trying to score pity points here Jeanine.>>You never knew your parents. It wasn't that hard.>Right, that's why you're a mess of conflicted emotions louder than I've ever seen.
>>30745686>>You never knew your parents. It wasn't that hard.>>30745686"But just because my childhood was rough, doesn't make your stories less valid, or important to you. It shaped us to who we are today."
>>30745976 What the fuck kind of teenage girl says that?
>>30746008one with neck beards in her brain making her lust after little girls
>>30746008The one from Dawson's Creek?
>>30746008one with a mind full of melodramtic neckbeards that can't write decent dialogue
>>30746174Who the fuck watched Dawson's creek?
looks like Gobble had another emergency...probably orphans out of a burning building
"I never knew your parents. It wasn't that hard." That's a half truth. Not knowing your parents wasn't that hard, truthfully. Growing up and watching everyone around you get adopted and be replaced with new fresh faces was hard. At first you missed the kids that went away, but after awhile you resented them a little for getting picked over you. New kids always heard you were a bad kid first thing. It became harder and harder to make new friends. As they came and went, it also became pretty pointless. That's when you started running away. You smile to her. "So you know Vance's sister, right?"She gives a half-hearted smile back. She's at least making an effort now. "I did when we were kids. She was always off winning awards. It was mostly Vance and I. His sister always had a Weedle up her butt about this or that. She was fine when she put effort into it, but she usually didn't talk to you unless she needed to."Sounds pleasant.You catch up to the camp area. You immediately start helping to set up the campfire with Devon as Vance prepares dinner. Vance was right, this spot looks cool.Jeanine looks lost about what to do. The three of you have developed an almost seamless routine. It'll be different having her around. In fact, she's getting in the way. You still manage to get everything set up quickly though. Vance is watching over dinner as it cooks. You have time for some short training. Nothing fancy, but at least it's something.>Maybe something different today. Challenge Robin to a friendly one on one.>Try more bonding with Leviathan>Destiny hasn't gotten much attention lately>Train with Devon. He's always up for it.>Train with Trunks, he was a huge help today>Train with Raistlin, his psychic berry juggling was really impressive>Nibbles is still young. He could probably use training>Something else

>>30746424>Try more bonding with Leviathan>Nibbles is still young. He could probably use trainingEither one.Nibbles because babby, Levi because she would be helpful at the next gym.
>>30746521Nay, Nibbles is ours.We shouldn't force her to get a pokemon if she is unwilling to train or keep one.

>>30746762Hahaha we had to buy such a massive tent huh?Fuck
>>30746571Haha, sucks to be you
"I'm going to be giving Levi and Nibbles some time.," you announce, and find somewhere just outside of view of the camp. Robin has been really great about Leviathan lately, but you don't want to push it. Plus while you're sensing she'd never intentionally hurt anyone, she might wreck dinner or the camp."Nibbles, Leviathan, come on out!"Both Pokemon appear in a flash. "Levi, I want you to watch me and Nibbles. This is how trainers and Pokemon train together. You might learn something." Like how to listen. Leviathan watches you, expressing nothing except a little boredom. Sadly, it's a little better than last time.You crouch in front of Nibbles. He jumps up and down in excitement. He really must have liked those treats. "Alright buddy, here's the plan, we don't have a lot of time today, so we'll just focus on the basics for now.">Work on a stat (specify)>Start training on Dragon Dance>Start training on Ice Fang>Start training on Fire Fang>Start training on Thunder Fang>Start training on Poison Fang>Something else
>>30747005>>Start training on Dragon Dance
>>30747005>>Start training on Thunder Fangfuck water types
>>30747005>Start training on Dragon Dance
>>30747005>Start training on Dragon DanceWell, looks like I need to go to sleep.Don't fuck it all up, somehow.
>>30747005>Start training on Dragon DancePoison fang is good, too, it fits with our ~aura~ and has toxic poison
>>30747051Who gives a fuck about our Aura, it's not like it means anything
>>30747046Quick ! Anon is asleep! Everybody start fucking up!buy internet stock on marginspit into the windtry to eat only one potato chip
>>30747005Dragon DanceShred a mean flute solo to really get that dragon blood pumping.
>>30747005Can we train him to do some kinda evasive dragon dance? Where he focuses on dodging with his slick moves while he powers up?
>>30747005>>Start training on Poison Fang
>>30747005>Start training on Dragon DanceIf only because Gyarados might also learn it by watching.
>>30747005>Start training on Dragon DanceFuck yeah
"Let's work on Dragon Dance. If the enemy is distracted, this is a great move to pull off so you can hit harder and faster."Nibbles gives off a tiny roar. It's both cute and a little mind blowing, when you consider that it's the same sound an ancient Pokemon would have made. Levi lets out what is probably her version of a condescending chuckle. You ignore her.You instructed Nibbles through the forms. It's slow and clumsy work, but he never loses focus. Still, it's not going well. Levi chuckles some more.You've had a lot of crap to deal with today, and it's starting to wear down your patience. You glare at Levi. "If you wanted to impress me, why don't you try helping out for a change?"Levi cocks her head back in incredulity. She moves over to where you're standing and pushes you out of way. It's gentle, by Gyarados standards, but it still knocks you over. Leviathan actually starts showing Nibbles how to start the dance. She gracefully moves her body to an imaginary rhythem. You can almost hear it based on how she moves."Levi, I thought you showed me all of your moves. I didn't know you knew Dragon Dance too."Her moves come to a sudden stop. Ah. You can see she doesn't know the full thing. She's confused about the next move. Leviathan looks suprumely humbled to be exposed like this.In the distance you hear that dinner is on.>Congratulate them both on their progress>Thank Leviathan for her help>Ask Levi if she's holding anything else back>Leviathan needs to be taken down a peg. "Maybe you don't know everything after all Levi, so you should start listening to me">Something else
>>30746619Pretty damned well, thanks. Met her dad, anyway. Beat the hell out of one-another with boffer swords, took a walk, watched TV for a bit.
>>30747461>>Congratulate them both on their progress>>Thank Leviathan for her help
>>30747461[x] Hey, bluffing is supposed to be my job.[x] Snicker.
>>30747461>>Ask Levi if she's holding anything else back
>>30747461>Congratulate them both on their progress>Thank Leviathan for her help
>>30747090Have Devon hold Jeanine down and force her to take brokerage exams!
>>30747461>>Congratulate them both on their progress>>Thank Leviathan for her helpbaby steps but step none the least
>>30747461>>Congratulate them both on their progressand>>Thank Leviathan for her help
>>30747461Thank Levi. Congratulate 'em both.
>>30747461>>Congratulate them both on their progressWe don't want to alienate Levi. But we don't want to pump up her ego too much either.
>>30747461>Congratulate them both on their progressWe shouldn't suck up to Levi too much.
>>30747461>Congratulate them both on their progress>Thank Leviathan for her helpI'd rather encourage her since she was just humbled a bit, and we want her to know that its fine to not be superior all the time.
>>30747461>>Congratulate them both on their progress>>Thank Leviathan for her helpHugs
>>30747584Credit where it's due. This is supposed to be a partnership kind of thing, so we shouldn't out and out snub her.
You give them both a quick scratch behind the ear. "Thanks for the help Levi. Good job with Dragon Dance. You too Nibbles. You both did really well today. I'm proud of you." It's the truth. They both really did better than expected. You're getting a little sick of doing all the work to make Pokemon and people like you lately. It was nice to see Levi do something helpful.Levi takes on a prideful look. It's different from her usual prideful look though. It's less...dominant? That's probably it. Nibbles jumps up and down, losing all of the grace he was starting to have a minute ago.You had back and enjoy dinner with the group. Robin, Vance, and Jeanine are enjoying dinner, and have a hot plate waiting for you.Vance hands it to you. "Hey Kat. We have a small hitch. Jeanine didn't bring a tent." You try not to roll your eyes. 'Forgot'. You already milked that one with the group. Wait, why is that a problem they need to talk to you about? "So we working out who she should share with.">Ask Robin if you can move back into her tent. Jeanine can take your old one.>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?>You can probably maneuver this conversation to have her in Vance's tent if you try.>Something else[Last vote of the night]>>30747482Sounds really nice!
>>30747802>>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?jelly robin?
>>30747802>>You can probably maneuver this conversation to have her in Vance's tent if you try.Literally the only reason she came along
>>30747802>>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?Shenanigans Ahoy!
>>30747802>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?We just had to buy such a big tent.
>>30747802>>Ask Robin if you can move back into her tent. Jeanine can take your old one.Just until we get to town. Then she can buy her own tent, and we can get ours back
>>30747802It was. Now I just need to make a whoopin' stick of my own!Why can't she just double with Vance? She wants the D, and I think Vance could be convinced to oblige.
>>30747818>>>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?>jelly robin?and then>Robin totally offers for use to move in with her, stuttering, stammering, and all
>>30747846"D-dummy Kat! It's n-not like I want you in my tent or anything... b-baka..."
>>30747802>Something else"And what were you thinking?"Let's let them suggest it themselves, so we're not culpable for anything that happens.
>>30747846and then>Jeanine beds with Vance>We bed with Robin>Our old tent blows away in the night>nothing of value was lost
>>30747802>>You can probably maneuver this conversation to have her in Vance's tent if you try.
>>30747802>You can probably maneuver this conversation to have her in Vance's tent if you try.
>>30747802>>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?
>>30747802>Ask Robin if you can move back into her tent. Jeanine can take your old one.>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?Either of these.
>>30747802>>She can double up with you. Couldn't hurt, right?Make Robin Jealous
>>30747802"Well, my tent is the biggest, so I wouldn't mind sharing..."
>>30747802>Ask Robin if you can move back into her tent. Jeanine can take your old one. promise you'll stay on opposite sides
>>30747802>Ask Robin if you can move back into her tent. Jeanine can take your old one.if she still wants to sleep seperate, get her in with Vance
Thanks everyone for the awesome time! I'll post precise times as I know them. No thread Monday for sure, and probably Tuesday. Wednesday is confirmed for roughly 6:30-7:00 as usual.I appreciate everyone being so understanding about the shitty scheduling. I'll update twitter with exact times as far in advance as possible.As always, feedback, especially constructive criticism, is always welcome. Don't be shy if you have ideas too.
>>30747802>Ask Robin if you can move back into her tent. Jeanine can take your old one.failing that, >You can probably maneuver this conversation to have her in Vance's tent if you try.
>>30748162Get well first. Thread can be worried about later.Thanks for running, man. Glad I caught it.
>>30748162Thanks for running, Gobble
>See threads on Suptg>Try to get on 4chan in time for one>NopeSo, uh, I have a question. We're playing an orphan with mysterious flute powers, right? And we occasionally use said flute in combat?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxpFSgDOgKwAre we Moon Tribe?
>>30748529We are the pawn of Dark Gaia. Get out of here with your Mayan time-wankery!
>>30748529No, we don't have mysterious flute powers, we're just good with he flute.And we cannot use it in trainer combat.
>>30748579Just you wait until we get a Honedge, then you'll see!
>>30748960Shut it, Ark. You're a bitch and even Ella doesn't love you.
