>>30895971>I feel guilty. I should have been here.>I feel angry. She should have told me something!Both of these, in equal measure.
>>30896057This, but mostly the former.
>>30895971>I feel victorious. There's no way she can stop me now...
>>30895971>>I feel guilty. I should have been here.
>>30896203You grip your knees. "I should have been here. She should have said something. She doesn't need to be hurt like this."Micheal takes your hand. "I feel terrible. I should have been guarding you, not running off with some illusion." "Annelin...""Micheal, I'm your guardian! It's my job. My only job. And I fell for something like that. The security in this place is laughable. We can hardly trust the staff.""So what should we do about it?" he asks. >Writein

>>30896643>Until we can get and ire additional bodyguards, I should be with you at all times.If Monica learns how to properly defend him I have no objection to adding her to the Prince's company of guards. Also, we're promoting ourself to Guard Captain once we start hiring help.

"I should be with you at all times." you say, "Maybe a ring that lets you poke yourself even if you're all tied up." you nod."...All times?" he asks. "What about, well... Bathing, and... And other things?">All times.>I promise not to stare.>Well, some privacy should be afforded.>Writein

>>30896856>Well, some privacy should be afforded.One door away is enough for when the prince needs to be princely by himself.
Something like this for the Anti-fuckup Prince Protection Ring Mk.II?
>>30896926>>30896950Yeah this. Though we should hire a secondary guard since we have to sleep eventually.Also, where's the Kong in all this hullabaloo.
You sigh, rolling your eyes."Some privacy can be afforded, of course, but we must remain close as possible." you grumble. He nods quietly, and he leans back. "What were you writing?" "Royal orders." he says. "Regarding the wards and the like. Dedicating parts of the treasury to the effort.""You can do that?""So long as father doesn't veto it." he says, drafting another. "And this one assigns you to constant shifts with me." he says, smiling at you. Monica stirs, sitting up, her face written with pain. >Writein
>>30897118Tear up."I'm so sorry."Hug.
>>30897118>>30897182Try our best not to crush her.
>>30897118"Hey, do you remember anything?"
>>30897118"Monica you're still seriously injured, please try not to move yet." Gently reach out to support her, then lower her back to the bed. "You did an amazing job Monica, Michael's safe because you were there standing guard, but it came at a cost. Your leg has been hexed, Karl and Ja'al are trying to get a replacement made as quickly as possible, but it will still be a few days. On top of that, your throat's taken soul damage. You will be able to speak again, but we don't know how long it will take to heal. Most everything else has been patched up, but you lost a lot of blood so take it easy for now.""And thank you Monica, for being there when I wasn't. I don't know how or when, but I will make this right."
>>30897288Dude, she can't talk and probably doesnt have the coordination to handle a pen yet. Might want to start by getting her some water and seeing if she's ready to eat something.
>>30897118I assume we were sitting next to Monny for a few hours, not a minute and a half before she woke up?
>>30897365((Yes.))"Monica!" you manage, gently supporting her - then giving her a small hug. She rasps, then makes a small shocked gasp - an inhalation of shock. She tries to speak, again and again, tears in her eyes as you explain her injuries, She looks at you, then at Micheal, then down at her leg. Micheal takes her hand, and you take the other, and she weeps openly, scars marring her arms and neck, one leg missing. She can't even sob, only whispering noises leak from her mouth. Micheal reaches behind the bed, retrieving a board and chalk, and she writes hurriedly.'Is everyone okay'"Aside from you?" Micheal asks. "You were the only one injured permanently."'That is good I am sorry'Wipe.'I should have called out'Wipe.'I was selfish I wanted to show'Wipe.'That I was strong too'Wipe.'I'm not'>Writein

>>30897599that was reckless...you don't have any training, and if raev didn't help us...
>>30897599"You wouldn't be alive now if you weren't strong."
>>30897662This is good. If she says anything about our using a boon to empower her softly lie and say that was just Raev leveling the playing field.Also we need to ask her if she's still serious about being with Michael, because if so, like it or not, we're forcing her to learn how to fight.
>>30897599"It's not weakness to want to protect the people you care about."
>>30897599"You saved the Prince. You're still alive. You're plenty strong."
>>30897599"There are different kinds of strength."
>>30897599"Monica, you... You're plenty strong. We're all alive, and it's thanks to that. Even if Raeve blessed you on my request, you were brave enough to stand there."'but they were but tiny demons'Wipe.You grasp her hand before she can write more. "There are different kinds of strength, Monica."A pause. Wipe.'That is true.' she writes, then wipes. 'I'm not giving up yet.' she smiles at you with determination, a fire in her eyes you didn't expect in the slightest. >Writin

>>30897842Lean in and whisper in her ear, "Neither am I, but if he chooses someone else, I hope it's you."
>>30897945You smile back."I'd expect nothing less." you say happily. Karl sighs behind you and Micheal, raising an eyebrow as she grins. "Well. If you would all clear out, I need to examine her now that she's conscious." he says, and you and Micheal leave. "So..." he scratches the back of his head. "What now?">Writein

>>30897945This, but ask that we don't sabotage each other anymore, not just because it's mean, but because things can escalate out of control.
>>30898258>>30898192>>30898205"We're talking to Ja'al." you say, pulling him along. Ja'al smiles up at you when you enter the room. "The initial warding of the castle is complete!""...What?""I figured it might be wise to encircle the castle with wards, which would create a larger, more powerful ward. Like, uhm... Imagine a suit of armor made of tiny, tiny suits of armor itself." "...?""And then those tiny armors are made of even smaller ones! Recursive Warding!" he grins. "This way I don't have to paint the whole castle - but I'll be working on individual rooms as well." he hums to himself. You describe the ring you had in mind, and he thinks. "Well... I could make a ring that works like Shocking. It won't make him bleed, just zap him. I'll make both, in case of antimagic." he says, setting himself to work. "...Shouldn't you be working on Monica's leg?" you ask, and he freezes up. "Y-yeah, I... I probably should, huh?">Writein.
>>30898382Don't worry, we'll find someone in town to make the ring. You focus on that leg.
>>30898382"you did a really great job with my hand, but for her it'll probably be better if it can be discrete"
>>30898382"She's awake now, you probably need to do some check up too, I guess?"
>>30898382Ask how long the ring will take to make before deciding whether it's worth it for him to do that first.
>>30898417this, its a basic thing to have done, sent someone to place the order, never leave the castle. and dont forget to USE THE EYE, NO WARDS WERE MADE, FALSE SECURITY IS OUR WEAKNESS .
>>30898382Ask him if we could just buy one in town.
>>30898382Get one commisioned from a jeweler. In secret, of course.
>We can get someone Karl can trust to make the ring; prioritize Monica for now.
"Well, we could have someone else make that ring.""That... Sort of isn't the problem." Micheal says. "She wouldn't wear a leg made by Ja'al.""But my hand is fine..." you say, spinning it for emphasis. "She doesn't trust critters." Ja'al says flatly. "Never has. Her father's shipping company and the docks are staffed almost entirely by humans, unless ogres can be coerced to work for food." he says, "She hates most Dra, and people like me..." he sighs."But...""Are you shocked?" Micheal asks. "That's how it is, sometimes. Totally kind people can be... intolerant, ignorant. I've tried to talk her down from it, but she dismisses many of my ideals as a phase." >Writein
>>30898382>Tell him to make the ringSeriously guys? We're going to revert to "oh, everything's safe for now, let's not rush this and get the prince secured before dealing with our social life" instead of learning anything from last thread? Really?
>>30898683Facepalm. "Ok, that's mildly insane, but ok. How bad an idea would it be for me to have a talk with her about that later?"
>>30898683"well in that case she'd better learn to walk with clutches... anyway, if she doesn't want help that'll leave you enough time to work on the new ring, right?"
>>30898683"well if she doesn't want a leg then who are we to say otherwise. shes a big girl, she can make her own choices."
>>30898683"If /you/ built the leg, could you have it done in time for the party?"
>>30898764>clutchescar parts probably arent a great substitute for a leg but thats just me
>>30898817I dunno, you could probably use part of a drive shaft as a peg leg
"Well, if she doesn't want a new leg..." Micheal frowns. "We'll make one. If she turns it down, then she can sit and stew in the medical ward through the party." he says. "She's not disrespecting my friend again." "I'll send out the order for the ring to a friend of mine." Ja'al says. "Rainbows On Sunny Day, most folks call her Rainbow." he says, getting back to work on the leg. "And hopefully Monica can get over her issues." he says quietly. Micheal palms his forehead as you leave the room. "Well. Father is handling preparations. I think I need a nap."That's when you remember that you and the prince, while not far apart, share separate rooms.>Writein
We should give him a thumbtack that can he can stab himself with so he can summon us if shit gets real.
>>30899024Take up position outside his room after varifying that no one is lurking inside /and/ that the windows, balcony etc. are secure. Also remind him that if he so much as thinks of sneaking out after we lost and arm and Monica nearly died protecting him we will kick his ass into next Thursday.
>>30899024there's a seat in his room, right?let's just keep watch in case something happens...might be a good idea to take something to read too...
>>30899024Do we know if his room is warded? It must have been.He keeps wearing the ring anyway.
>>30899098I should note, you've had maybe a few hours of sleep in the medical room last.
>>30899110You're too lewd
>>30899110We should find another Guard to stand at the door and get a chair in his room to sleep in then.
Yeah, but how skeevy would it feel to bed down with him right after all that? I suppose we could go sleep in the tub in his suite if we had to...
>>30899173Sounds like best plan
>>30899184Or bring a chair like a normal person.
Okay so I'm just popping into this thread, what is with that OP picture? I take it you guys voted to sleep with a dragonblood or something?
>>30899291Yes, minus the blood.
>>30899291Yeah, about 20 threads back. I'm hoping to get a new OP drawn eventually, since the current one is misleading.
>>30899291It's of a guy we had a one night stand with, not sure why the image hasn't been updated since nothing came of him.
>>30899343Because no-one has drawn an image of Annelin ruffling Michael's hair yet.
>>30899343Because no one can come up with a better subtitle than what the current pic has
>>30899328Are you kidding me? It's fucking rad.
>>30899361Just get an image of someone giving a noble boy a nuggy as a temporary placeholder.

>>30899343Go bug a drawfag. Larro's too busy and for some reason my identity pissed off Decu.You sigh, fetching a chair and another guard. "Go on, then." you say, entering the room with him. You set down your chair and flop into it, still in the black dress, feeling tired beyond words. "...You know, you don't have to sleep in the chair." he says. Okay, yeah. You never really looked, but that bed of his could hold three people without issue.>Implications of sleeping in that bed with him are too much.>Who gives a shit, no one needs to know and I'm tired as hell!>Bed with prince~!>Writein>>Sleep in...? (writein section)
>>30899381Teel really was rad, wasn't he. Too bad we fucked that up.
>>30899410>Bed with prince~!>>Sleep in... his arms (and our current underwear)
Not so much the implications, but I think jumping up from a chair would be easier than being snug in bed, if something happens
Much as snuggles would be nice, we should get distracted. Just sleep in a chair, facing him. And prop a bell or a clock or something else that makes noise in front of the door so we know if someone tries to get in.

>>30899711=== You're in that place again.A room of hot iron. A man of stone. "She's here." comes a whisper. "AH!" the man of stone grins wide. You admit, it reminds you of those statues in the library, strong and powerful, but the whole head is curved like a beak, and the arms and legs are oversized and rounded. Bull horns stick out from its head. "Finally. We learned the name of the soul from the castle we pulled in, and... It's you, Annelin Karkinos!" he grins. "A mortal I can actually understand! How wonderful!" >Writein

>>30899791What do you want with me?
>>30899791who are you?
>>30899843Never ask that question! It makes them think you're corruptible and then instead of having a civil conversation it's all lies and bribes which are also lies.
>>30899791"So, who were you before the whole demon lord thing? One of the elder gods? Some mortal king? Just someone with a powerful will that was wronged in life? Since you have my name you have me at a disadvantage Mr...?"
>>30899791"More demons, fucking hell why cant you guys just FUCK OFF and let me sleep in peace."
"Why do I have the distinct feeling that you're no friend of a more co-operative and accepting world?"
>>30899791If we have our spear just scream in incoherent rage and start stabbing the fuckmout of him.
>>30899791I seem to be at a disadvantage. You know who I am, but I don't seem to know you...

Since you have my name you have me at a disadvantage Mr...?""Haru Umda! Lord of Warriors!" he announces, rather bombastically. "You're speaking through my lieutenant, Garibaldi!""Why can't you let me sleep in peace?""You are sleeping." Haru Umda says. "When you wake, you'll be nice and energized for the day of... Whatever it is you humans do." he waves it off. "But the ones aiming for your prince, ah, we have a common foe! And there's no better way to contact you!" Does this guy have a volume other than shout? "And you see, you see, that damn Lord of Lords wants to end war! I can't have that!">...What?
>>30899791"Ah, the Destroyer of Lost Souls! I was wondering when we would meet. Might I commend you for being far more cordial than I had anticipated, you cad you. Why to think a demon lord powerful enough that his subordinates would rather break their soul gems than answer our questions? Well I assure you my heart is a flutter from such undeserved attention and flattery."
>>30899988>...What? bet that lord of lords is law having a bitchfit
>>30899988I made you a new OP picture, Avalon
>>30899988"The Lord of Lords? Huh, we thought that was probably you using a pseudonym. Ok, and that would be bad for my world why?"
Can someone please explain what this is all about?
>>30899988"This is to do with Law, isn't it? An entire world subjugated under one ruler. I can imagine how that might not appeal to you.The question is what you intend to do about it, aside from give me dream peptalks."
>>30900072Michael is exactly how I imagined him.
>>30899988"Is there realy nobody else you can get to do whatever youre going to ask me to do? I'm getting realy sick of this shit"
>>30899988>"Why not? I'm sure he'd leave you an arena in which to crush anyone he disapproved of."
>>30900072Well, Annelin has a nice tan, but you Nailed Michael perfectly.

"And I assume this doesn't please you.""Damn right! Crush everything under one ruler... Pfah! Then we've no one to fight but ourselves. No war, only... civil strife. It cannot stand!" "...So? Why are you calling on me?""Because your damn hand-soul fell into my realm when that bitch of a half-lord claimed it! And then I saw what was going on through it!" he growled.

"...And what am I to do about it?""...What you're already doing." he grumbles. "Apologies for my Lord's brashness," Garibaldi whispers to you in his own head, "But we really cannot predict when you will arrive. And my Lord does not possess the intellect, nor do I, to form a proper plan." "The man's got a hold of almost every damn clan! They all want to run around topside! But that fucks things up!

>>30900355"Wait...I have a friend that's been trying to summon one of you. Is their a chance this Lord of Lords character is selectively blocking summoners?

Haru Umda states, leaning on his other fist. "But summoning a Warrior is dangerous. It's not a big shock that a meager summoner would fear my men!" he guffaws, then catches himself. "Er. Sorry.""So... I should just keep the prince safe.""Well, you know the name of a reasonable Warrior! Tell that summoner!" he says. "Then maybe we can interact on a more suitable level!" he growls.

>>30900728>"We'll talk about it with Ja'al tomorrow.">"Now, can I help with whatever's keeping you up? You have training in the morning and really should get some rest."
>>30900874"We'll talk with Ja'al about it in the morning. What's bothering you?"He frowns. "I don't... I don't like hurting girls." he says, leaning on the balcony. "It's amazing to have two beautiful young ladies so desirous of me, but... If I turn to one, I turn away from the other." he says, "And... Well, if I pick neither, then I'm hurting them both. They're both such wonderful people..." he groans. "Clown is laughing...">Writein
>>30900947>"Michael, we're both big girls. We'll recover. Now stop worrying and get some sleep."
>>30900947we'll recover... you're not the first or the last who got in a situation like this...shit happens, it's life
>>30900947"You'd be hurting us worse by stringing us along or choosing someone you'd be unhappy with."
>"Given the quality we display, I think you can rest assured that no feelings will be hurt with any choice."
>>30900947>Throw a pillow at him.>"Stop worrying about potential girlfriends Michael! Priority one is keeping you alive long enough that worry about relationship crap when the world isn't ending!"
>>30900947"Michael, it'll hurt us both a lot worse if you wind up unhappy. If you choose Monica over me, I'll be heartbroken but I'll get over it-I'm sure she will too." hug him gently. "Be a little selfish and do what's right for you. You'll be the king, you might not get the opportunity a lot."
>>30900947"You know how you'll know when you find the right person Michael? You won't balk at the cost of loving them. She's out there, somewhere, probably thinking about things entirely unrelated to love, but she's there. If fate is kind then your paths, however unlikely, with cross."
>>30901139Are you honestly, at this stage, trying to say to Micheal that he shouldn't pick Annelin or Monica?
>>30901139yeah nah thats stupid, what >>30901184 said
>>30901184Yep. Because he basically just said that he isn't interested in either of us but he's too afraid of hurting our feelings to say it outright.
>>30900947"All the other girls also have to deal with not having you too. Don't push yourself into inaction, it's not good for those in command."
>>30900947"I don't think you have the right to call anyone but children "young" just yet."
>>30901212What.I do seriously hope your being sarcastic and terrible at it.
>>30901212Are you honestly this dumb?
>>30901238>>30901257I think he's hoping Mike won't be MC dumb. We're providing enough of that.
>>30901318But what he's actually talking about is some awful "love at first sight perfect waifu" grade shit.
>>30901342Eh, I guess we aren't reading it the same way, then.
>>30901342Not love at first sight. I'm saying he'll find someone worth fighting for, come hell or high water, and (this is the important bit) I'm coaching it in terms consistent with our faith and including us in the pool of candidates. I thought the "you may even have already met her" bit went without saying, but I was clearly wrong.
>>30901409>but I was clearly wrong.That goes without saying, the whole thing reads like your trying to break up with Mike and want him to find someone else...How about you stop trying to write fancy dialogue and just clearly convey your meaning and intent instead.
>>30901442Fine fine, will do in the future.
>>30900947"You're picking me. Joking, joking, lighten up and go the fuck to sleep."
You scratch your head. "Micheal, it's much worse to string along people." you say. "Think clearly, act clearly. It's what my mother always told me."He nods, humming as he looks to the sky. "Right." He turns to face you. There's an intense look in his eyes. Eh?He grasps your shoulders. Wait. Wait, what? Your eye flickers as you check illusions. This isn't right... You... Suddenly, with strength you don't recall him having before that training, he pulls you into a kiss, the full moon casting the room in pale blue as your eyes go wide, your hands at your sides rising in shock. All sorts of wild things pop off in your head, all kinds of things you never thought of.>Writein
>>30901556Use the fucking EYE!!!!If he is Micheal, tear his robe off, throw him in bed and ravish the little princeling.
>>30901556seconding >>30901593but stick to kissing and heavy petting
>>30901556WRESTLE. If we can't, he's clearly demon.
Ha! Ha!Full ContactFluid Swapping
>>30901556Goddamnit Michael, could you have picked a worse time for this?
>>30901556use the eye moreblush like madif it's really happening... well, this room is soundproof, right?
>>30901690>if it's really happening... well, this room is soundproof, right?His has always been, ours was recently soundproofed
>>30901593We died>>30901556> your eye flickers on as you check illusionsIt's the real thing
>>30901556Slowly reach up and caress his cheek while gently stroking his chest with our other hand. Gently break the kiss and whisper "good choice" in his ear. Then go back to kissing him while slowly moving him back towards the bed. Throw him on the mattress then slide on top of him, continuing from where we were before. Slowly work him out of his clothes, reassuring him as necessary. Have fun and remember to say a prayer of contraception to Raev.
>>30901730Did not died
>>30901556>This isn't right...Fuck, it's another demon/illusion/whatever.Check to see if Michael's left the room or not.
>>30901556AG, if this is the Telepathic Ambassador mind controlling us again I will laugh my ass off.
I am WAY too drunk on St. Patties to really vote.That said use the eye. Fucking demon, being right in the end...
You let your eye glimmer, seeing no illusions. You hold him close as you kiss him back, smiling as he practically has to stand on his toes. You never noticed the height difference until now. Your heart is racing as you slowly pull apart, the both of you flushed. "I...I actually, I'm not..." he fidgets. "I'm not sure where to go from here." he says. looking up at you with those wonderfully bright eyes. >Save it for after the party.>Well... I could teach you.>Are you sure you're ready?>I'm not sure if I'm ready for that leap yet.>Writein
>>30902069>Well...I could teach you.Start with teaching him protection spells.
>>30902069>Save it for after the party.Lets keep it to kissing and heavy petting for now, with an extra large dose of cuddling
"Please trust that all that physical training is going to make things all the easier for me and less draining for you.Now sit on the bed and relax, I'm gonna give you really good dreams."
>>30902069>Writein"just relax">>take the lead
>>30902069>Write inNo words, just smile knowingly and pull him gently back into a kiss. Guide him through everything, pausing when appropriate to make sure he's still comfortable with going forwards.
>>30898817>car parts probably arent a great substitute for a legSays you
>>30902115I'll also add, isn't he meant to pop his cherry after his party, the coming of age ceremony?
>>30902208Not that I'm aware of? If that's true it's probably demon seal related and we should back the fuck off.
>>30902069"Save it for after the party"God dammit, I really don't feel comfortable doing this when Monica is still crippled. Seems liable to make her go Griffith.
>>30902245it was mentioned by Karl IIRC 2 or 3 threads ago when they told us about the party, its when he comes of age and becomes a man, in many sensesif thats the case and I'm remembering properly and not deluding myself, we can still have our fun with Mike, just no popping his cherry, just lots of heavy petting and maybe finish with a bj and tell him to save the rest for after the party
>>30902069>Save it for after the party.Feels kind of skeevy doing it right now.
>>30902069>save it for after the party
You smile. So small, he seems now, so comparatively innocent. Those big eyes... You kiss his cheek gently. Gently, you kiss him again, hands sliding down his back slowly, feeling the muscles under your fingers. Satisfaction rises in you as you know you helped make those, helped define them. His strength, his power...It's all from you. "A-annelin." he manages, as you kiss his neck. His voice sends little shivers down your spine, and you gently part his robe to kiss at his chest - surprisingly firm to the touch. Fingers dance over skin as you slide the robe off his arms, and it hangs at his waist as you touch his arms, his hands. Pushing him onto the bed, you seat yourself on his waist, looming over him somewhat. >Retain his virginity.>Take it. Take it all! >Let him decide.
>>30902312>>Retain his virginity.
>>30902312>retain his virginity
>>30902312>Let him decide
Heads up Avalon, there seems to be some regions having problems with 4chan right now, so votes/players might be reduced a bunch
>>30902312>Retain his virginity.Give him a bj or something
>Let him pick.Ever virtuous /tg/.
>>30902312>Let him decide. >>30902335it just came back here
>>30902312>Let him decideif we do choose to keep him a virgin, there's a certain technicalityhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8ZF_R_j0OY
>>30902312>Take it. Take it all!
>>30902351>there's a certain technicalitythere are many technicalities to preserve it if it goes by the classical/traditional definition
>>30902312>>Retain his virginity.The party is when he is supposed to pop his cherry, right? We may as well let his first time be...ceremonious.
>>30902339Seems reasonable.And give him the surprise finger. Seems the type.
>>30902312>Pray to Raev for guidance.
>>30902377We are not doing it in public.
>>30902407It's not in public, he just publicly chooses us and then takes us behind closed doors.
>>30902312>Let him decide.
>>30902312>Let him pickShould let us know if he really wants us or not.
>>30902426Someone is totally going to try to assassinate him during his ceremonial first time. Calling it now.
>>30902312>See if he's still able to perform after foreplay.He's a virgin, he isn't going to last long enough for the main event.
>>30902312>>Retain his virginity.>
>>30902446and we'll fight them off while riding him, like that sex scene/fight scene in that one crazy action movie I forget the name of
>>30902384\Just fuck Monica, she needs it more than him anyway, dont let my boon go to waste./
>>30902518Drive angry? I know that has a sex/fight scene
>>30902312>Retain his virginity.its way hotter to deny him access to our slut cave for now
>>30902312Let him choose. least we can do for this kid is let him choose when he screws first
>>30902524You heard our patron. Her voice seems a little off, but she's probably just having fun with Rikard.>get micheal dressed and go back to sit by Monica's bedside until she wakes in the morning.
>>30902531>>30902540nope, its climax is a shootout while falling from a plane, main plot is the homeless protag must protect a hookers babby from an evil corporation ceo
You lay against him, smiling as you kiss his neck."You picked well. But... I think you should wait." you say gently, kissing his neck, making him shiver. You pull the covers over the both of you, and he kisses back, warm softness on your neck. You snuggle against him, and he holds you close - and you both sleep soundly....You blink awake, the prince sleeping soundly between your breasts. His chin has pushed down your dress enough to allow him to sleep there, curled against you and slumbering quietly.Someone is knocking on the door.
>>30902577smoking aces or shoot'em up
>>30902577Isn't ringing any bells but sounds cool
>>30902577>CrankI'm talking about the part where he's fucking his girlfriend in front of a bus full of Chinese tourists. There wasn't a shoot out involved in that?
>>30902600>shoot'em upbingo>>30902582Quick, use our eye, see who it is and determine if we need to get decent or not, or if its more fucking demons
>>30902582Gingerly disengage Prince Blueball and go use the Eye on the door.
>>30902582Clothes on now!Man we're conservative about sex.
>>30902607shoot'em up was fucking great
>>30902622set eye to doors. "Fuck off (person) were sleeping"oh shit what if monica
>>30902582Eye the door. Confirm with the guard we posted outside that this isn't yet another incursion.Also the prince is late for training. Wake him and tell him to suit the fuck up!
>>30902655going to have to watch that sometime.>>30902582use the eye to see who it is then answer the door
>>30902582eye the door
>>30902582Wake Michael and tell him to get ready for training. Get up, straighten our dress, eye the door, answer the knock and call a challenge to whomever's on the other side.
You rise, eyeing the door. Monica is waiting there, along with Sarl. You feel a little guilty, but... Well, it was his decision. Not yours. He's the one who gets to tell her.You pull up your dress as you walk to the door and open it, smiling at Monica. "Ah... Guarding him?" she asks, quietly.>Truth.>Lie.>Stall.>Writein
>>30902777>Truth."sorry, he made his choice"
>>30902777>SarlSarl? is that meant to be Karl?>Stall.Guarding him yes, I'll let Mike explain, also, you got your voice back?
>>30902777>Truth. "Yes, that was the second time he was attacked on my watch with me nowhere nearby. Unfortunately it looks like my personal life is going to be suspended until the demon situation is resolved.">Say hi to Sarl.
>>30902777>along with Sarl>she asks, quietly.Paranoia rising...
>>30902866well it is a truth of some sort, we were guarding him...
>>30902866Seconding this, Michael needs to tell her himself, and we shouldn't start politicking. It's between her and him, what we and he did is between him and us.
>>30902777"I tried, but wound up falling.asleep. Also, that's a strong soul you have."Nudge Michael awake emphatically.
>>30902906Honestly it didn't occur to me that "Yes" on a yes-or-no question would be "this is unrelated but you should know about it too!". Plus Annelin need to learn some level of tact if she's going to marry into royalty. She might be the iron fist in the family, but she shouldn't go out of her way to pick fights anymore.
>>30902777USE THE EYE, SH CAN TALK!!!!
>>30902984HOLY SHIT, HE HAS SOMETHING THE EYE THE EYE THE EYE
>>30902777Why the fuck didn't we wake Michael? He has training to do and we need to stop by our room and change into armor before he can hit the practice area.
>>30902975very true, answering with truth for her question wout just be a "Yes I was guarding him">>30902870>>30902984yeah, I'll second/third using the eye
>>30902777After whatever we say, ask the guard we posted at the door what time it is and get Michael up so he can get training!
>>30902866This, but use the Eye while doing it.
>Annelin's new theme songhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imnbyZ4u-7g
>>30902777How did they get past the guard we posted?EYE!
>>30902777use the eye, be prepared to punch a hole through something's chest.If she's not a demon, stall until Mike's ready
You use the eye instantly, and then Annal steps out."A-ah. He's helping." Annal steps out from the side of the door. "By projecting the thought form of what I'm saying as I say it, everyone can hear me. It's not perfect...""I was gaurding him last night, yes." you say. "Sorry, we overslept." "I understand it was a long night." Sarl says. "Which I'll excuse. This time." he nods, "Let's go, Micheal."A-after I dress!" he says hurriedly, running about behind you. He rushes out past the three of them, and Sarl follows, leaving you with Monica and Annal.>Writein
>>30903102does Monica have a new leg or is she using crutches?"Thank you Annal, for helping her. Monica how are you healing?"
Well, that was close, we nearly diced her."So, you're on your...wait, how are you on your feet?"
>>30903102I can't leave him so would you mind coming with me we can talk while he trains
>>30903102"Gods fucking damn it, Micheal. 'Stay within earshot' in one ear and out the other. If you two will excuse me, I have to catch up with my charge and have my damn armor brought to the practice area since he wasn't kind enough to stop by my room first."
>>30903148>>30903159>>30903162these are good, and yes, we should follow Mika and keep an eye on him, and periodically use our EYE to scan our surroundings for anything out of the ordinary
>Use the eye>Use the eye>Use the eye>Use the eyeHas anyone ever considered the shit we'd be in if we hadn't touched the divine fluffy tail?
>>30903159>how are you on your feet?She's using Ja'al's leg. She's changing herself, for Michael, only for us to NTR her.
>>30903217yeah, we'd probably be trapped in some illusion/tentacle raped in hell what a shame
>>30903217Michael would be dead/raped, so would wethat, or there'd be a lot less demons
>>30903217The eye have NEVER preemptively worked. It only clues us in once we're in combat.
>>30903217YepI've also considered cutting off the divine fluffy tail and using it to bestow a single mutation to each of our new demon hunting guards to help them
>>30903276because the demons just happen whenever they want. totaly unpredictable
>>30903295>Defiling fluffy tailYou sicken me.
>>30903295That's a great way to kill or incapacitate most of them I guess?
>>30903295I second the god killing plan.
>>30903295>to help themor drive them mad, maim them, mmutate them, kill them or any number of horrible and dibilitating things, we only got lucky with a 77, we could have fucking ended the quest then and there.
>>30903102It feels like you're running out of steam OP. when was the lat time you ate?
>>30903102"Come on Mon, we'd better follow him."
>>30903367yep, but if we're going to be treating them like fodder as that one anon suggested, then this way, we get some useful fodder amongst the chaffI was also totally not serious at all
>>30903102Can we please just move on to the point where Michael becomes the virgin sacrifice to open a gate to hell to let his grandfather, the first Lord of Lords, return to this world to wreak his vengeance upon the living? Please?
You pass Monica in her wheelchair, then pause, helping to push her along to the practice area before scampering back to your room and getting back into your armor. You feel more comfortable like this, always, and return to your forms.You can't stop smiling, and you almost feel like you're floating. Life is good...--- Thread End ---
>>30903550>dumb smile all over faceOh god Annelin, what the fuck is wrong with you? This is not the time to gloat!
Talk about tempting Fate.
>>30903550Worst. Bodyguard. Ever.
>>30903550So, is Annal still with us? Because I'd like to discuss his take on the mind fog spell.
>>30903579Seriously, while a certain sense of satisfaction is not inappropriate, this is some shitty timing on Michael's part.
>>30903550So now we need to talk to a demon who wants to keep fighting demons. Certainly, this is the best and most awesome choice.
>>30903779the timing is bad yeah, we gotta get Mike to tell Monica soon so it does not fester and we can help Monica get better and we can all move on
>>30903550Next time, use the Opening Image from thread 3. It's Michael, so it's appropriate. It doesn't say "Dragon Fucker" which makes me miss Teel. It's a fine image, you don't need a drawfag to make something custom for this quest.
>>30903805Yeah, Garibald was pretty hot.
>>30903779I think shit finally got real for Michael. Sure, he got held hostage before, but we got out of that with minimal injury and we were a hardened fighter to boot. Now that both of the women closest to him have risked life and limb on a literal level, he is starting to realize just how scary being a king will be. Combine this with the fact that he knows the lord of all demons wants him and him alone dead, and no shit he will go looking for whatever small comfort he can. For all he knows, his life might end tomorrow.
>>30903806While that is true about not having it fester, it also feels wrong to do it right after Monica got maimed saving his life.Even if she kind of brought the injuries upon herself by not alerting anyone, it still feels mean to have Michael reject her like immediately.
>>30903538Not before we diddle the royal skin fiddle.
>>30903897We should probably clue her in some time before the party, so that she doesn't spend the entire time trying in vain to seduce him.
>>30903885>his life might end tomorrowAvalon is not so merciful.
>>30903870How are you gonna waifu a demon? We're making a wayshrine in our villa. The arena can't keep him entertained.Demon is the perfect murderhobo MC choice
>>30903947I meant at the time of him making his choice, so today I guess.
>>30903966He's an honorable warrior that will be bound by contract to Ja'al. He should be strong enough to constantly challenge us when sparring and keep up with us when "sparring". True he wants a real war, but that's what Hell's for.Pretty sure Raev would be fine with it, she's all about personal exploration.
>>30903967Oh, I assume you meant before the conclusion of his birthday party.
>>30903944thats what I meant by not letting is fester, sure its utterly shitty timing to do it after she got maimed, but leaving it for something like the party will only make things worse, we get all three on a room and talk it out nice and reasonable and we comfort her and help her and then have a threesome and then move one
>>30904053we've just made real progress with Mike and we've got bigger shit to deal with as well as handling MonicaWe are not going to waifu the demon, so fuck off
>>30904095>threesomeWould never occur to Annelin and if suggested she would turn it down. Unless it was with two dudes.
>>30904139well we asked her about the option and Monica turned it down and now with the timing of this shit I'm feeling real shitty about letting Monica down, which we know we will have to do sooner or later, lest she throws herself on an assassins dagger and comes back as a seducer and the circle begins again...
>>30904125I'm the only one here who seems to think that beyond being a McGuffin, Mike's a waste of space. I don't like him, but I'm not going to win any vote against him. Heck, I can't even win a vote to keep Annelin from acting stupid around the rest of the court now that Michael finally succeeded in seducing her, which is very annoying. So calm down. I like the rest of the quest, so I'm not leaving, but I don't feel any particular need to pretend I'm on board with fucking our boss for a promotion.
>>30904190Did we? I thought we proposed being Michael's mistress, which has zip to do with a threesome.
>>30904139>Monica puts on a dragon dildo strapon>"Let me be your Teel tonight"
>>30904228>but I don't feel any particular need to pretend I'm on board with fucking our boss for a promotion.If thats all you see it and him as, then I pity your sad existence and would ask, why are you here?
>>30904125>We are not going to waifuWell, that's been said about fucking everyone by now, hasn't it? No, wait, we didn't mention the grandad.
Ok, aside from tripping another couple of death flags for Mike and making contact with the Warrior Demon clan, was there a point to this thread?
>>30904342naah, that wouldn't work, she doesn't have the body for that gina, however...
>>30904267Monica said it would only work if the women felt the same about each other, loved each other and heavily implied that lesbian shennanigans would occur if we agreed, which was why the vote was so hotly contested, it was a "Stay Straight" VS "Try it out" vote, explicitly worded as such
>>30904359>Why are you here.I like Ann and most of the supporting cast, Raev and most of the gods are fun, the combat is engaging if not intuitive and every once in a while AG shows another little flash of brilliance in his writing. For the most part I have fun, I just see Michael a spineless politician that's got his heart in the right place but can't make a decision away from the negotiating table without an absurd amount of handholding. Sure he has potential, but he needs more seasoning and experience in the world before I could consider him more than an overgrown boy.But enough of my disappointments, I'm here because I have more fun than I don't, so sorry for enjoying myself.
>>30904472Honestly, it's interesting to hear different reasons for people enjoying my quest.
>>30904472>so sorry for enjoying myself.Don't be, just don't be surprised when people think your not and your deliberately shitting up the place like your earlier posts tone implied, your earlier post in >>30904228 very much seemed like you would sabotage any vote dealing with Mike because you didn't like him
>>30904486For the most part I think you're doing a good job. My only real criticism is that as it gets later in the day, your level description tends to drop off which can make it easy to miss or misinterpret things.>>30904548I don't sabotage things. I broke the tie on Raev's boon, because I want Annelin to be competent and do her job well. I might not like or particularly respect Michael, at least as he's been developed thus far, but that doesn't mean I don't see the writing on the wall.
>>30904633Well I'm glad your reasonable about it.
>>30904486Oh, I'm sure you're gone, but one last thought. Before at the first opportunity we need to send a message to Ja'al to finish Monica's leg, but store it rather than sending it to her for fitting. We need to have the inevitable Mike conversation with her before we mention the leg, because if she's wearing it when the situation gets resolved she is going to fucking lose it.
>>30905350That's certainly something to note.By the way, if you folks find any inconsistencies in lore or the like, don't hesitate to tell me.
