You are Shane Morris. You are, apparently, a wizard. At first you didn't believe it; no one did, when an owl flew through the window the evening of your eleventh birthday bearing a letter with no return address.Even when a man arrived in a singed tweed jacket claiming to be the deputy-headmaster of 'Hogwarts'. No, you're pretty sure no one believed in magic until the moment that he started juggling your living-room furniture with his wand.The thing was that you had never been particularly good at anything. You were average at sports, got average marks, had an average number of friends. Sure it was a nice fantasy, but for it to be really happening. Wow.It's been a few months since then, and now you are walking through King's Cross station with a trunk full of magical gear and your trepidatious parents.As you walk through the station you see strange people with the same strange collection of cauldrons and books as you. All of them are slowly inching toward a wall which from the looks of it is some kind of illusion. You get ready to make your way over to the wall, eager to see what your new life has to offer, but first you turn back to your parents.>Bye. See you for Christmas.>I don't know if I'm ready.>[Cry like a bitch]
>>32426461>>[Cry like a bitch]
>>32426461>>[Cry like a bitch]We're fucking 11 years old
>>32426461>[Cry like a bitch]Eleven year old kid going to a magic school he didn't know existed a few months ago? This is the only correct response.
>>32426461>[Cry like a bitch]
>>32426461>Even when a man>deputy-headmasterAs if I wasn't interested enough. Gotta love those AUs
>>32426693Not to mention >wall, not pillarWHAT'S HAPPENING I'M SCARED We're going down the rabbithole here.
As you look at them you search for something to say, but all that comes is tears.Your father kneels down and hugs you."Shh. It's okay. It won't be that long, and like you said it should be fun. If anything goes wrong, just call us. Even if we aren't there, we wont let anything happen to you."Your mother kneels down and gives you a hug too. You wipe your eyes and smile again."We'll see you at Christmas." Your father says.You break away from your parents and start moving toward the wall. About five meters out you start to run, and crash straight into another cart.Both trunks slide from their carts and each land with a loud bang on the floor of the station.“Oh, sorry.” Says the boy who was pushing the cart. He comes over to help put your trunk back on your cart. “Didn't realize we were going to the same place.” He whispers to you. He is tall for his age, which is to say your age. He has messy brown hair and he is smiling like you're a good friend he's happy to see again, not some random kid who just knocked into his stuff in the middle of a train station.He fixes his trunk onto his cart. “See you there.” He dashes at the wall and disappears.You follow him through a few seconds later and are greeted with a bustling platform filled with strangely dressed people. There is only one train, with a big 'H' on the front, you guess that's your ride.>Look for the boy.>Get on the train.>Mill around a bit. You've got time before the train leaves.
>>32426784>Get on the train.Don't want to have to rush on to it.>>32426760Missed that. Though that might just be a misinterpretation.
>>32426784>Look for the boy.Too strange to pass up.
>look for boy
>>32426784>Get on the trainWe'll end up encountering the boy again, regardless of what we do. And we want to get good seats.
>>32426784>Get on the trainDon't want to miss that shit.
>>32427209>We'll end up encountering the boy again, regardless of what we do.Yeah, even if we're in different houses, its pretty much guaranteed we'll have at least one class together.
You figure it would be smart to get on the train a bit early. You look over your stuff to make sure you didn't lose anything in the collision and start toward the train.The people here seem so weird to you. Most people are dressed like they're homeless, or on a low budget TV show. There's the rare student dressed like you, most looking scared and confused like you too.You're glad to get out of the chaos as you step onto the relatively quiet train. You have your pick of compartments so you sit in the front, then the conductor tells you the compartment is reserved and you move back a bit.You sit alone for a few minutes before the compartment door slides open. A boy with his head in a notebook saunters in and throws his trunk on a seat. He flops down next to it and sinks deep into his notebook.>Hi, my name's Shane.>[Say nothing]>Uh, rude.
>>32427290>Hi, my name's Shane.
>>32427290>[say nothing]Whoever it is clearly doesn't want to be bothered and can't be arsed to put up with our shit at the moment.
>>32427290Say nothingCould we optionally stare at him like a total psycho?
>>32427379>Could we optionally stare at him like a total psycho?Seconding.
>>32427290>Hi, my name's Shane.We're going to be on this truck for hours, might as well break the ice now. ENGAGE FRIENDSHIP PROTOCOL
>>32427407Yeah. Lets' do this.
You say nothing and try to look busy, but you keep glancing at him out of the corner of your eye. You're kinda curious what he's reading in that notebook. After a while you are just glaring at him.The compartment door opens countless times, but every time it does, the door slowly rolls closed again on your weird passive aggressive staring contest.After a while the train starts moving, and at this point you are staring daggers into the top of his head. Finally the door rolls open and a kindly old woman says; “Would you like to buy anything?”He finally looks up and as he does the boy screams and jumps back against his seat, throwing his notebook into the air. The lady screams too and slams the compartment door.“When did you get here?” He stammers at you.“Uh, I was here before you.”“Uh... Really?”The boy looks lost. If not for his trunk you would half expect he randomly wandered in from outside and got on the wrong train.“Well, uh, sorry about that.” He says. “I'm a little bit spacy. My name's Alex.”>I'm Shane.>Spacy? You're bonkers!>[Say nothing]
>>32427597>I'm Shane>"What in that book of yours?"
>>32427597>I'm ShaneNOW is the time to introduce ourselves. Don't insult the kid, though.
>>32427597>Say nothing and actually look at him like a fucking psychopathThe people have spoken.
>>32427597>I'm Shane.the book THAT good m8?
>>32427597>I'm Shane.Seriously, guys. We're going to be known as that crazy kid when we get to Hogwarts. Why the psychotic staring?
>>32427679Because it was funny.It can stop now, though. It'll just be creepy soon. And creepy people can't troll people.
>>32427679We had nothing else to distract ourselves with, and apparently could work up the courage to actually just introduce ourselves.
>>32427679>not wanting to be the crazy kidWe need rep man. Streetsmarts. We've failed if people don't flinch when we look a them.Plus we need an excuse to have ourselves be thoughroughly mind-raped by legilimencers.Oh wait, fuck. NO EYE CONTACT EVER! WEAR A BLINDFOLD AT ALL TIMES!
>>32427727>>32427736We keep it up, and people'll expect us to be a budding serial killer or mass murderer.Hold it off for now. We can be creepy later.
>>32427767We want to attract the Death Eaters and join the cool kids with their murders and other things.I never read the books or watched the movie, they did that right?
>>32427767That just means we'll have an easier time being recruited by dark wizards! Dark magic is best magic.
>>32427801>>32427812I'm fairly sure that the Death Eaters have been disbanded in this universe/time period.And besides, who would want to join the bad guys in a universe where love is explicitly the most powerful magic in existence? That's like begging to get your ass kicked.
“I'm Shane.” You say, offering a hand shake. He's too busy looking for his notebook to notice your hand, but he shouts “Nice to meet you!” From under the seat.He eventually returns with his notebook.“What's in your book?” You ask.“Oh, uh, like I said, I'm a bit spacy. So I write stuff down in my notebook so I can remember it. I was trying to remember what the name of the school was, so I was going back through my notes, but it looks like I forgot to write it down.”“'S Hogwarts mate.”“Oh, is it, thank you.” He scribbles the name down in his book. “So what is your favorite textbook so far? I like Transfigurations. Simple. No big spell names, just focus.”>I like Transfigurations too!>Charms>Potions>Dark Arts [Be the edgemaster]>Other
>>32427872>Charms>Wink at him
>>32427872>PotionsBecause, let's face it, that kind of shit can be useful as hell. Sure, curses are cool, but Potionmasters get truth serums and transformation serums and all kinds of fucking potions and shit.
>>32427872>Otherdivination, because we're lazy
>>32427872>PotionsMaster of prep-time
>>32427889>>32427935Oh my fucking god, we're going to be that guy, aren't we?
>>32427872>PotionsI got agree with >>32427925Potions are the shit.
>>32427872>I like Transfigurations too!
>>32427889>Charms>can literally make people fall in love>can bend the will of othersCharms are the shit yo.
>>32428026>>can literally make people fall in loveYou're thinking potions there.
>>32428064Am I?I say we sort of dual spec then. Potions and Charms.
With potions you can regrow bones, refill your blood, make horrible poisons, mindcontrol people, transform yourself into all sorts of shit, become immune to fire, fly, gain supernatural luck, etc...
>>32427986Yeah, we are.Question: Can charms influence animals and the like?
>>32428126You are.Love potions were explicitly a thing that existed; the only actual spell to modify behavior, however, was the Imperius curse, which just outright takes control of someone's mind.
>>32428169Given the first charms we see were to levitate feathers and shit, I assume so. Charms seems to basically be any non-transfiguration, non-combat magic.
>>32428064>>32428178OP, be extremely wary of love potion shit.We're 11 years old and have neither the means nor the inclinations to create a harem.>>32427872Charms all the way.
>>32428242I'm not saying we should.Merely pointing out that, given prep time, Potions are the shit.
>>32428278Someone's been playing Witcher.
>>32428278So given the prep time we could build a harem with potions not charm?Okay.
>potions for days
>>32427857>love is explicitly the most powerful magic in existenceI wonder if there's a way to industrially massproduce love.Do animals work? We could just get a shitload of puppies and white kids. Or does that kind of love not work?
>>32428325>not becoming popular simply because we're the shit.I mean, wouldn't it be cool if we outclassed Potter and his fucking plot armor just by playing smart and saving the day two months ago, before anyone knew that [insert threat here] would be a problem?I'd love if we became Potter's antagonist simply because we kept stealing his thunder all the time.
>>32427982I'd say this, with transformations maybe being a close second. Thinking about the far future, I like the idea of being the guy that's incredibly smart and has the patient mind for potions while also being able to use transformation.From what I've gathered transformations are one of the best things to use in the middle of a fight, if you have the power for it. Otherwise I'd say potions and maybe defense against the dark arts. Just because all the dark creatures and stuff are cool and maybe some day we can be a monster hunter or something.I don't know, I'm over thinking things, but I tend to do that.
>>32427872>PotionsThey just didn't get enough love in the series.
>>32428402WARNING.YOU ARE INTERFERING WITH THE CANON.EXTREMELY BAD THINGS HAPPEN WHEN YOU INTERFERE WITH THE CANON.
>>32428402Is Potter even going to be here? He could be graduated by now.
>>32428432ERROR ERROR ABORT ABORT SHIT/FAN COLLISION IMMINENT ABANDON THREAD SHITSTORM INCOMING
>>32428432>>32428402I'd like to point out the fact that we seem to be in an AU or the future. There's a male deputy headmaster, and our parents told us to call them from the school if we ever got homesick.
>>32428432>>32428456>>32428467>>32428469All excellent points, I assumed that OP would have us play during the books, which is probably not true, in retrospect.I don't mean to derail the thread, so I'm still voting Potions and Charms.
>>32428469To be fair, they're muggles they probably don't know about the tech not playing well with magic if it hasn't been explained to them.With that thought in mind maybe we could be the guy that finally breaks that barrier, if it's even possible. Of course if that hasn't happened yet then I doubt it will.Also, I'm going with >>32428409. So,>Potions, with a slightly smaller interest in transformation and defense against the dark arts or care of magical creatures or whatever it's called.
>>32427872Potions>>32428432>>32428469Wonder if we get to punt ebony dark'ness dementia raven way's sparkly cunt in.
“I like potions quite a bit, but I also like... charms.” You give him an over exaggerated wink.“What? I mean charms are cool. You got something in your eye, mate?”“What? No, I just... I like potions.”“Oh, that's cool. Too much memory for me, lots of very specific instructions don't really sound all that good to me.”“I could see that.” You say.You and your new friend Alex chat all the way to Hogwarts. He forgets to change into his robes on the way, so when the train finally comes to a stop you two are among the last off the train.A stout angry-looking scotsman accosts you almost immediately. “Ach! What did I say?! Get to the boats, first years!” He grabs the both of you by the collars and drives you down a muddy hill to a lake side. There about ten boats are lined up down the shore, all filled with kids who look like other first years. The man pushes you roughly into a boat and throws Alex into another.“Now row you wee tossers!”The entire fleet of boats sets off like race horses. By the time the boats are at the other end of the lake everyone is out of breath. A man is waiting for you at the dockhouse. It's the deputy-headmaster, the one who had come to visit you.“Welcome children to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In a few moments I will lead you through the door and into the Great Hall where you will be sorted into your houses. Please be patient and await my signal.”Alex inches over to you. “So, Shane, which house do you want to be in?”
>>32428580God, if she's here we should make her life a living hell. That just cements my vote for potions and transformations. We can practice our alchemy and planning and shit by being pranksters and raining down shit on anybody that poses a threat to us and our friends.
>>32428618HUFFLEPUFF 4 LIFE NIGGA
>>32428618>we did the winkI like you.Snake house master race. Literally.
>>32428618That does raise the question of House.Ravenclaw, perhaps? We know Alex won't be in that one, he'll probably be hufflepuff.Or maybe slytherin?I'll go with ravenclaw.
>>32428618The raven one, son. Whatever it was called.
>>32428618Ravenclaw or Slytherin. I couldn't care less about the stigma of the snakes, as long as we don't go all grimdark.Actually...now that I think about it, we're a muggleborn, we don't know if the prejudices against our kind have lifted yet. Yeah, I'm going to go for...>RAVENCLAW!
I'd say Slytherin, because if there's one thing every quest protagonist is, it's ambitious.We don;t have to be an asshole or whatever, but BY GOD our lust for power will make itself know no matter what we do!
>>32428618Hufflepuff.>The fuck is a hufflepuff?
>>32428618>SlytherinThis seems like an AU. With any luck it may actually be the house of cunning.
I would like to point out that so far you guys have mostly chosen what I would call the Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw path choices, though this is entirely up to you, thats just the way you seem to be playing to me.Also no muggleborns in Slytherin so thats out.Also confirming that this is an alternate universe so no Harry, no Voldy, and thank god, no Ebony Way
>>32428762Very well then,RAVENCLAW!
>>32428762Aww, no slytherine?Alright, I'm going with Ravenclaw. We're not going to be able to be humble enough for Hufflepuff. That may not actually be a part of their values but nothing good happens to them so yeah. Also I don't like yellow.>Ravenclaw
>>32428762>being overtly gay and psychopathic is Hufflepuff-y
hufflepuffbecause of course /tg/ wants to be the ravenclawbut it's been established that we're average as fuuuuck and that's what hufflepuff is forfailing that, slytherin for the lulz
>>32428762Oh. That is fair.Ravenclaw then. We do need to have some respect from people, so no HP.
>>32428828>Fan of one of the hardest magical disciplines>Already plotting to rule the school as king of cool>Average
>>32428762>no muggleborns in SlytherinDagnabbit.>HufflepuffGood hard graft'll mak ye tuff.
Fine, RAVENCLAW, but by god we're going to be so ambitious the everyone will think we got lost on the way to the dungeons when we turn up at our house quarters.
>>32428762Well then hell yeah, Ravenclaw motherfucker.
>>32428618>“Now row you wee tossers!”Wait, why aren't the boats self-rowing?
>>32428824Why? The wink and the stare already happened.
>>32428883Because apparently AU Hagrid is a giant dick.
>>32428883gotta work in PE somehow
>>32428907>mfw the wink was my idea/tg/ is pretty gay sometimes.
>>32428618Ravenclaw is pretty boss.Though, /tg/ being /tg/, we won't demonstrate intelligence and wit. We will instead demonstrate dumbassery and lewds.
This is bringing up a good question to me. You say that there's no Potter and no Voldemort and such, so this is just a completely AU or is it the future/present time instead of being set in the 90's?
>>32428940We'll start our own house, with blackjack and hookers!The banner will be a Quetzalcoatl!
>>32428940Not if we immediately put our foot down and resolve not to be fucking morons.Team Ravenclaw, reporting in. Minimize risks! Play it safe! Know more than everyone else!
>>32428952We don't know that IC yet.I expect we'll find out as the story goes on.
>>32428573In reference to the call them thing, I'm guessing we're pushing the age of cell phones. Even if we don't have one ourselves, there's plenty of landlines in the early days.Oh, and >>32428618Ravenclaw
>>32429045We don't know what year it is?
>>32429051Electronics don't work in Hogwarts.Pulse dialing copper wire phones might still work, but mobile phones are a no-go.
>>32429074Oh fuck, we're the autistic kid looking a the snowglobe.
>>32429101Nah, nah, you have to get the setting right. We're an abused kid in a cupoard coming up with a story in our head to make the pain stop.
>>32429097... I'm not talking about if the phones would work or not. Of course they don't.I was saying that our parents telling us to call them if we got homesick implies we're pushing into the early 21st Century timeline wise.
>>32429044>Team Ravenclaw, reporting in. Minimize risks! Play it safe! Know more than everyone else!Operators operatin'
“I like Ravenclaw. I want to be able to prove that I can be smart like that.”“Me too. You know everyone thinks I'm stupid just cause I can't remember stuff. But I can be smart too I just have to try harder. I've already read the school books a bunch of times and I can remember most of the basic stuff already.” Alex looks proud of himself. “I wanna be in Ravenclaw.”“Okay, they're ready.” The deputy-headmaster says.You and the rest of the class file into the Great Hall. The place is massive, and doesn't have any ceiling you can see, it just opens up on the sky, which is as big and ominous as the sorting you are about to experience. “When I call your name, step up and sit on this stool.” The deputy-headmaster cries out over the crowd. There is a mild silence as the first person steps up and is sorted into Hufflepuff.Eventually its Alex's turn and he nods to you and steps up to the stool, perhaps the least scared of anyone so far, you can hear him mutter under his breath. “Ravenclaw.”He steps up and they set that funny hat on his head. Now he starts to visibly squirm in the seat, and the hat seems to crease more and more in it's fabric face. Finally; “Fine then, Ravenclaw!”Alex looks positively ecstatic as he goes to sit at the Ravenclaw table. And he gives you an awkward wink like the one you gave him on the train.A few more people, and now its your turn.More incoming

>>32429274>charms in there as wellWe're fucking McGyver with superpowers man.
You stagger up to the stool. You can feel the tears coming again, you're glad when the hat slides down over your face.“Weak” You hear someone whisper in your ear. “Ambitious but weak. What do you hope to accomplish here I wonder? What do you even know about our world?”“Ah, yes a mind for potions, but I wonder if you have the hands for it. Ravenclaw isn't the house for proving yourself boy. Its for those who already have it in them.”“I can do this.” You say back“Can you? You'd be surprised.”“What about Alex? If he can do it so can I.”“That boy is very bright. Much smarter than you. His impetus has made him work on his wits more than I've seen in a student in years.”“You're caring, and sweet. You cried when you left your parents. And you're crying now. Let me send you where you belong.”“No, I...>Push to be in Ravenclaw>Give up and go into Hufflepuff

>>32429482>Hufflepuff>Hard work, LoyaltyNah.Ravenclaw instead.
>>32429482>Push to be in RavenclawI'm suddenly feeling a bout of hate hate and pyromania coming on.
>>32429482>>Push to be in Ravenclaw...ok, I actually wanted Hufflepuff, but I'll be damned if I'm beaten by a sodding hat!Try to set the hat on fire. With our mind.

>>32429625>bravery>standing up to a hatMan, if that's all it takes EVERYONE is a Gryffindor.
>>32429724Hey, a talking hat with a bad attitude that can read your mind is probably pretty intimidating to a kid. Hell, I'd probably be intimidated by that if I didn't know it was coming.
>>32429724>standing up to an unbelievably ancient magical artifact known to have mental powers>inb4 it drops Godric's sword through our skull
>>32429708I'd rather not, but if it ends up happening then I guess it ends up happening. That's just like I'd rather not this turn into a harem quest. I hate those, we're eleven...we don't need to worry about girls right now.
>>32429788I'd get a chuckle out of that, to be honest.
>>32429482>Push to be in Ravenclaw
>>32429757>can read your mindStart imagining hat murder. Hundreds, nay thousands, of hats being torn apart by dogs, run over by trucks, set on fire, boiled in oil, etc...
>>32429708I most certainly hope so.
>>32429813Just imagine your brain being made of chainsaws, made of fire, made of rocket launchers.Should scare the hat nice and good.
>>32429813Fuck that.Imagine thousands of hats participating in Quest Thread General and reading loli smut waifu faggotry.
>>32429813Have you ever read anything by jBern I think that's who it is anyways That hat is a nasty motherfucker, he's probably used to that shit.
>>32429800That's the issue with every HP fic I've ever seen. No one wants to act like an actual eleven year old.
>>32429852It's been a long fucking time since I was 11.I kind of forgot how.
>>32429852It's perfectly in character for an 11-year old to get pissy when a hat insults him.
“To hell with you. I refuse to be coerced by a hat. I'm going to be in Ravenclaw, and I'm going to make my house proud.”“Of course you will.” You're not sure how something smiles telepathicly but the hat does it anyway. “Ravenclaw!” The hat yells out.You stand up, swing the hat off your head and slam it onto the stool as hard as you can.“Ow!” the hat says as you run down to your table and sit down next to Alex.“Good job!” Alex says. “What did the hat say?”You shoot a look back at the hat, and you can swear you see fear in its clothy eyes. “Not important. Anyway good job man!” You clap Alex on the back.“Thanks.”You look back up to see the boy you collided with, Linus Parkinson, get sorted into Hufflepuff. He looks like hes about to faint when he gets off the stool and trudges over to the Hufflepuff table. Better him than you.You and Alex enjoy the feast before being led up to your new rooms, high up in a tower. As you and your new room mates lay down for bed you call out. “Good night Alex.”“Good night, um, uh... good night.”“You forgot my name didn't you?”“...No.”
>>32429852If that's the case then screw it, we should just skip the whole hogwarts thing in a quest some day and just start out in the magical world. It'd probably be a lot more interesting in the long run.Not to say I'm not liking this quest, cause I am, I'm just afraid of what it can turn into.
>>32429884How is Alex a Ravenclaw, again?
>>32429881And? We were talking about waifus.
I promise that until at least 3rd or 4th year all efforts at romance will be interpreted as awkward winking.>>32429921Shane is having trouble figuring that out himself at the moment.
>>32429921Despite everything everybody always says, the Sorting Hat almost always puts you where you actually want to go. It's why so many purebloods are in slytherin, they think they should go to to slytherin so they want to go to slytherin, so they do go to slytherin.

>>32429852It's perfectly in character for an 11 years old to start getting interested in the "things of life". At that age most kids have already started masturbating (although only a minority has had the patience to do it "to completion").Just because Harry Potter has the sex drive of a pebble doesn't mean we do.
>>32429998>>32429960It's entirely possible for an eleven-year old to be having sexual thoughts/urges. Shane could easily be having new feeling about other boys and be desperately trying to cope with them by emulating figures from pop culture.We just need to lay the ground-work now so that Shane is firmly set on the yaoi path by the fourth year. Maybe we could even engineer some sort of potion accident that stunts his growth.
>>32430041That's kind of gay tho.>>32430066That's even more gay. Stop that.

>>32430066Please no. Seriously, please don't try to push this.I might okay being a trap, but would be more interested in it if we weren't pursuing gay stuff and were really frustrated about our girly stuff. Not going to push this though.

No one will assign significance to the wink if we're constantly doing it to everyone at the slightest provocation. >>32430150Dumbledore was a senile madman obsessed with prophesy. He also boned the WRONG DUDE. >>32430213Fuck, interesting...Although doesn't that mean that EVERYONE is crossdressing ALL THE TIME?
>>32430218To be entirely honest?I have no fucking idea what it looks like.
>>32430264>Although doesn't that mean that EVERYONE is crossdressing ALL THE TIME?Well, since the robes are the uniform, I'd say no.
>>32430218>mfw people take this seriouslyMaybe if you didn't start calling people faggots, this woulda died out. Now it's going to ruin the thread.Fuck you and your homophobic reflexes.

>>32430252As far as the first post goes, I would post that because it's true.It's not about magical realms bullshit, it's about rectifying inacurate information. Namely, telling people who pretend 11 years olds don't have a sexuality that they are wrong.You've been 11, Anon. There's no need to pretend otherwise.
DEAR GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING?This shit goes down so frequently now that people're going to have to start running eunuchs-only quests.
>>32430289>Now it's going to ruin the thread.How do you mean? I find the idea of an innocent quest about Shane's struggles to fit in with a house far too smart for him going on while we all argue vehemently about dicks in the background to be quite humorous.
>>32430305>I'd go ahead and explain why I think it would be fun to have a gay MC, but this bit here:>> faggots can't stop thinking with their dicks, and everything they do becomes about their sexual fetishes.>makes me think that reasoning won't have much effect on you.This.Putting all the shota dominatrix bullshit aside, actually having a gay MC would be fun.
>>32430337>implying the namefag isn't still 11
Well, uh. No. This is not, nor at any point will become Blatant Fetish Quest. Just no. If you want to make Shane gay, that's fine, but this quest will not contain any description of sexytimes greater than;>you did itThat being said this quest is based on this system http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Harry_Potter_and_the_Tabletop_RPG which I wrote a few months back with the help of /tg/. This quest will be as much a playtest as a game, so be ready for things to change and for things to go horribly wrong.Here is Shane's character sheet so far.
>>32430381...Did you mean /y/achts?
>>32430384If it were handled responsibly and with respect, maybe. But do you trust /tg/ to do that? I don't.
>>32430400>but this quest will not contain any description of sexytimes greater than;>>you did itThat's cool. We can still be a qt dom trap right?
>>32430400Oh hey, we're kinda intelligent.
>Shota yaoi>Yaoi>Harem>11 year old being a player>Stupid sexual shit instead of just having a fun quest.
>>32430368>>32430289Relax, guys. The thread isn't ruined. We just need to adjust a few small details (I mean, gay or straight, it's probably not going to influence the Quest that much, although it does have its importance as far a building MC's character goes).
>PederastyWait whats going on?
>>32430400Thank you, OP. You are a gentleman and a scholar.
>>32430400Why is there a power rating? HP magic depends entirely upon knowledge and skill. Despite fanon, all wizards are equally powerful.
>>32430400>this quest will not contain any description of sexytimes greater than;>>you did itI'm pro-shota dom, and I prefer it this way. I like the idea of Shane the Chute Shanker, but I don't actually want to read the lurid details.
>>32430410Can't really know until we give it a try. And we can ignore the assholes.Ignoring the assholes is a thing 90% of the audience does all day erryday on 4Chan, anyway.
>Saw this quest in the archives.>Read all the story posts.>Seems like a good quest so far>Decided to start reading the comments to see what people are talking about.
>>32430465It's our libido stat. Obviously, we need to start grinding.>>32430435>Stupid sexual shit instead of just having a fun quest.I can do both, but none of the anti-yaoi crowd seem to be able to.
>>32430492Yeah, this one got really crazy for a first thread. Usually, you need to get past the first 5 or so for this level of faggotry.
>>32430511It all started with a wink.
>>32430511It's no uncommon for fledgling quests to get some obviously OOC actions (like the death stare and the wink), but usually the QM just ignores it.
>>32430506>I can do both, but none of the anti-yaoi crowd seem to be able to.Personally, I'm just against the guys trying to turn an 11 year old into super-/d/-sexual mode. I'd be fine with a gay protagonist.
>>32430534You know what, can we get back to the creepy stalker/serial killer thing?At least that wasn't... this.
>>32430534I think it started with the whole 'psychopathic staring contest' thing we did.
>Come in to see if this is a quest that would be cool.>Actually really liking things quite a bit.>Really liking our responses to the hat.>Other kid winks at us.>Go off to get some dinner.>Come back to see all hell has broken loose.
>>32430210You know how Ants will swarm Peanut Butter if you leave it lying around?Well, here, Ants are evangelical homosexuals with an agenda of "turning" young boys.And Peanut Butter is a man who is frustrated about girly attributes.Within minutes, they will find it, and they will zerg rush it.I think "heterosexual male struggles with gender identity" might be an interesting character development arc.But that arc is not possible. /tg/ will NOT let the character in question remain heterosexual.>>32430213Yes, though I don't know what the motive would be.>>32430289What happens if one guy is being a faggot, and the other guy is being antagonistic, for the PURPOSE of making the faggot aggressively gay up the place?It's like a Trolling Tag Team.>>32430305"Reasoning". For homosexuality. Reasoning does not work that way.>>32430368I think the shitstorm is intentional. It attracts interest and bumps the thread.Not positive interest, but interest nonetheless.>>32430384Having a gay MC will fuel shota dominatrix crossdressing bullshit.4chan cannot play a Gay man straight.
>>32430534>be me>never really interested in Harry Potter>Sees quest>Thinks intrest?>3 HOURS LATERWhy jeebus why?
>>32430410We're playing an 11 year old boy and it took 10 minutes for people to start throwing their fetishes at it. If I continue following this quest I will do it under the assumption that the MC is asexual.Because playing a eunuch is the only way we /tg/ can avoid disgusting fetishes involving 11 year olds.
>>32430547I'll be honest that I'd rather not have the protagonist be gay, but I'm not one of the people screaming about it. I'd rather him be bi than gay, but that's just me.Of course doing that would bring in the harem...
>>32430604You know what I vote?The MC doesn't have any sexual organs. whatsoever. period.
>>32430559>implying we can't have both>>32430568>play a gay man straight
>>32430547>>32430485>>32430442>>32430410>>32430384OP, disregarding the /d/ bullshit, I think you might want to brace yourself, as the MC might very well turn out to be gay.I hope it's alright with you. Shouldn't make much of a difference. Instead of having a scene where we're being abumbling idiot with the cute girl, we'll be a bumbling idiot with a cute boy.

>>32430638And then all not fetish people leave
The next morning you wake up to a bustle of people getting ready for class. You get ready as well, and are quickly off, down to breakfast. You guess it was too much to hope you would get to have a feast for every meal, but you're pretty sure even magic couldn't counteract that much fat.You get your schedule and are quickly off to your first lesson of the day, Charms.The first year Ravenclaws and Gryffindors are led to the 5th floor classroom. Inside is an almost impossibly thin man with a long craning neck. He has balding gray hair and a patch of bright blonde hair in the middle of his head that looks really unnatural.“Good morning. I am Professor Cecil, your charms instructor. As this is your first class we will start out very simply. Today you will begin learning the Wand Lighting Charm.”Professor Cecil goes over the basics of casting spells a few times, and then the spell itself. Finally you're ready, your first spell.You raise your wand. “Lumos.” >Roll 1d10
>>32430604I don't have a problem with it. I have a problem with everybody suddenly assuming he's going directly into Butt Pirate of the Carribean when he's in a coed school and still doesn't know what his actual attractions are and why he doesn't feel the same way about girls as his friends do.

I just wanted a quest where we become a wizard doing wizard things, why do you guys have to ruin that by wanting to stick your little boy dick into other little boys?
>>32430684Why would they? Just because MC is gay doesn't mean the Quest is gonna degenerate into /d/ bullshit.Actually we just had the proof that we didn't actually need the MC to be gay for the /d/ bullshit to slither in (hu hu, see what I did there?). It doesn't actually make a difference to the pervs.

While we're on the subject, and this is in no way a desperate attempt to stop talking about bequeathing our dick unto other children, what are the dice rule here?First roll, best of 3, etc.

4chan cannot handle homosexuality without blatant fetishes.
>>32430795always assume best of 3 unless directly stated otherwise
>>324308484chan cannot handle ANY sexuality without blatant fetishes.

He looks funny actually. Until his eyes fall on you, then you stop smiling.He limps to the podium as the class enters and begins a rant on the dangers of Transfigurations. By the end most of the class looks ready to bolt for the door.“Next time we'll try some actual magic, and see who ends up having to be carted home as a vegetable.” He says.

Instead it is a gruff man with a five o'clock shadow and a moth-eaten tweed jacket that smells like the classroom. The deputy-headmaster, Professor Ricimer. Potions is definitely all it's cracked up to be.He stands at the front of the class. "Well met. Feel free to relax, today will be very simple. Just make me a Boil Cure Potion.

I typed out a whole response and then lost it to a page reload, damnit>>32431620Wood gives a general bonus (Wards), core gives a specific bonus (Patronus Charm), length is aesthetic.Success you cauldron bubbles and smokes in the way the book says it should and you have a perfect sickly green color. Only about half the class managed a successful potion, you feel good.Alex unfortunately has only managed to make a mess of the table."Good job. Homework is to bring me a functioning potion next class. Go to lunch." Ricimer says. You head up from the dungeons for a well deserved lunch.Calling it for today. Will be back either tomorrow or Friday at about the same time. I will be around for a little bit to answer general questions.

>>32431690Honestly, this is going to get boring fast if this is the sum of the quest. You'd be better off just having us roll for general performance during the week and having us get directly involved for noteworthy events.
>>32431795It'll probably be like the books. First run through of the classes, then timeskips and plot.
>>32431795That's a good idea. I was mostly just planning on doing the first day and time skipping to interesting things otherwise. I expected /tg/ to get as sidetracked as my normal gaming group, but I guess quests kinda speed things up, so I was actually running a bit over my planned content.>>32431856Yeah basically

I drew the tall professor. If I catch you again, I'll draw more.Hope you like.
This is rather dull. The collective makes few choices and everything feels incredibly rushed.I do not give a single fuck about this character. It's a shame, because I'd like to. I just haven't been given a reason to.2 quick pieces of advice should you want this quest to live:1. Slow down and let the character develop.2. Use the slower pacing to open more opportunities for decision making and character growth.
>>32432071I agree with your points, but I didn't find this dull.
>>32432071I think the latter parts (Post sorting) was the QM trying to get a bit more content in. We probably should have stopped after that, then we could have fleshed out the first day a bit more. You know, meet our dormmates, decided on breakfast, and maybe learn the names of other people in our year between classes.
>>32432043Thank you.>>32432071K. I'll try. Once again, its my first quest and the medium is so different from even other ttrpg type scenarios that I'm still trying to figure out pacing and stuff.>>32432141Yeah, we should really meet those mysterious dormmates of ours.
