Sorry about the delay, folks. I had to move a lot of shit around to get back in my dorm after heading home for a week, along with some generally sapped motivation.When we last left off, our new hero Caesar, the dork that he is, managed to hold his own against Iskandir himself. We also learned of doctors working on a cure for Hemoxin, presenting a possible chance for helping Isk's condition.But for now, we're talking to Tell and Alexander.You walk into the archery range, another of Tell's usually hangouts.He's notching and firing as quickly as possible, the feather end of the bow tickling his index finger with each shot. On his final set to fire, several targets come up in a line, to which he spreads his magnetic arrows out and fires in a spray, hitting consistent bullseyes althroughout. Still, there's no hint of joy on his face. He finally notices you come in."Ah, Caesar. You did some good work out there. You should be proud.""Yeah, well, it's just in the job description is all."Tell nods, before slamming the button for another round."Don't be so sure that that will always work. Iskandir--the Conqueror, he's not a normal cyborg, nor a man. You can't be sure that just making him angry won't remove all chances of him showing mercy like that.""That wasn't mercy, it was retreating for him.""...If only you knew."There's a dead silence. Maybe you should shift the topic to Tell himself.> Why did you get into this?> How are you doing...?> Write-in.
>>42376477> Write-in.How does your bow work?If I know one thing, it's that guys like to show off their fancy tech.
>>42378654"How does your bow work?"Tell lets another one fly before speaking."It's a light-weight, collapsible magnetic bow with HF arrows. The mechanism to suspend arrows is activated with this--" He presses a button to demonstrate, "--and I do the same to fire when suspension is in effect.""Huh. Well, my gladius--""It's on a retractable cord, and the shield is collapsible for easy transport and for sudden combat scenarios." he says, not blinking as he continues firing."What, how did--""I designed all of our weapons. I was an engineer before I was augmented, you know."That kind of would explain why he does all the repair shit."Wait, so you even designed--""His halberd? Yes. Don't expect some self-destruct mechanism to be in place. We can't account for something like what's happened to him. Additionally, he pillaged weapons from all those other cyborgs. It's not like he's rendered powerless without it.""Oh...">Move on to Alexander>Talk more with Tell>Write-in.
>>42379000>Move on to Alexander
>>42379000>Move on to AlexanderClearly Tell is not in a good mood today.
>>42379363>>42379511>>42380001>>42380061You sense the awkward tension and mutter a goodbye, walking out and bumping right out up to Alexander himself. You meekly look up at the giant of a man standing over you."H-Hello."He pauses, before breaking out in a grin. "Good shit back there, Caesar. You showed that son of a bitch alright."You're a little off-put by his casual nature, especially with the contrast of Tell's mood. But that works out for you, you suppose."Oh, I was just running through his case files in my head. Figured on the spot what would work.""Ho-oh-lee shit, you actually read those dust-catchers? You are dedicated, man. I think I like you, little guy.""I-I'm REALLY not that little...""Anyways! You want to go down to the Recreational Facility? Some of the interns and I are going 5-versus-1 basketball, and I think they need a 6 if they want to stand a chance.">Let's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air this shit.>Write-in.

>>42380569And we use that full ride scholarship for our degree in advanced theoretical bio-physics.
>>42380426>>42380421>>42380349"You're going to sing a different tune once I start playing, Alex." You say."Oh, really? A guy like you, what...five-foot-five? You know it's good to be close to the net, right?"You punch him playfully in the arm and head down side-by-side.Once you're changed up in a jersey and shorts (cybernetics still on full-display, effectively the full-body equivalent of a codpiece) you head out to the court, where Alex tosses you the ball to start. The five interns cast a glance at you to lead them.>Pass off to the left and block Alex!> Everyone block him while you dunk!> PLAYED COLLEGE BALL, YKNOW
>>42380941> PLAYED COLLEGE BALL, YKNOWI only see one option. You're supposed to give more than one option, OP.
>>42380941> PLAYED COLLEGE BALL, YKNOW
>>42380941>> PLAYED COLLEGE BALL, YKNOWThis isn't even gonna be fair, Alex. You sure you shouldn't grab someone on our team?
>>42381148>>42381047>>42380991"Sorry Alex, but unfortunately for you--"You hand signal the interns to go in and block Alex. They swarm around him in a circle like ants to a picnic."I PLAYED COLLEGE BALL!"He sneers. "At some cushy Ivy League school."You rush up to the net, dunking and hanging off the rim."Try *ngh* University of...uh.""University of...?""...Wisconsin.""..." Alexander gives you two seconds of silence before breaking into laughter."HOLY SHIT! GUYS! GUYS, WAIT. WAIT A MINUTE." He runs over to the emergency communications system and breaks the glass, laughing the whole while."Guys! Guys, oh god, yeah, this isn't an emergency, but...pffAAHAHA! CAESAR'S FROM WISCONSIN! F-FUCKING GREEN BAY PACK--AHAHAHAHAHA!"You hang from the rim, suddenly contemplating if a fall from that height could kill you.> Defend your motherland of cheese and sub-par football teams!> Just keep playing the game, sticks and stones and all that.> Write-in.
>>42381835> Defend your motherland of cheese and sub-par football teams!

>>42381835Holy shitOP you know that Wisconsin is the state of serial killers rightThis is unfortunate
>>42382174Why do you THINK we became a cyborg?
>>42382274Because the reason that was stated when we made our new MC? It's kind of personal.
>>42382174>Season 3>Et tu, Brute?
>>42382174It's okay.I just talk to your son on the internet.Naked.Kind of like an INTERNET PREDATOR.>>42382092>>42382071>>42381988>>42381857"Well, how bad does it make it for you that you lost to someone from Wisconsin?"Alex turns from the phone, putting it back."Lost? Buddy, you got one point.""Wait, one--""Dunks only, one point each. First to five wins it.""Oh, you're serious! You want me to take the handicaps off then?"You shoo away the interns, who gladly walk out.Alex takes the ball from the ground and gets you both in the middle of the court, slamming it down and making it go high in the air.You both leap up for the ball.> Defy physics and get the ball first!> Go for the BM and smack it out of his hands.
>>42382388>implying Isk wont just slaughter us before season three>>42382420> Go for the BM and smack it out of his hands.OP, pls. Lets not bring up the Omegle incident
>>42382420>[X] Defy physics and get the ball first!
>>42382420> Go for the BM and smack it out of his hands.Just like we learned in Wisconsin.
>>42382420> Go for the BM and smack it out of his hands.
>>42383265>>42383004>>42382467STRAIGHT OUTTA WISCONSINYou jump up and smack the ball just as Alex grabs it. It bounces off the ground, and you rush for it, taking it up and rushing past him to dunk. He pulls you down and grabs the ball back, but you quickly take it back, in a weird back-and-forth.Finally, you get it past him and use his hands, grasping for the ball, as a springboard to jump for the hoop, making it."...One to nothing." He begrudgingly admits, resetting the ball.> Skip past this shit> Keep going! We've got to live out his loss.> Write-in.
>>42384361> Keep going! We've got to live out his loss.Let him get some points in, though. That way he won't hate us.
>>42384361>> Keep going! We've got to live out his loss.OP, its the random nonsense like this that makes Metal Gear a 10/10 series>tfw no SAFEHAVEN soccer game like in Peacewalker
>>42384532>>42384448The game plays out intensely.Round after round, the two of you go at it, robbing balls, leaping from the walls, and dunking one another in consecutive order.With everything down to the wire, it's 4 and 4. You grabbed the ball first, and now there's a tense air as Alex awaits you. You glance to the right, making him mirror you, but you toss it left. He dashes for it, but you sprint forward, sliding and spinning in a circle to trip him. You leap after the ball, land on the wall, and kick off of it, going for the net in a feat that would make a physicist cry.You make the dunk, and it's glorious.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skVg5FlVKS0)"Fuck, dude. You sure know your way around some balls.""I don't feel alive unless I've got some balls between my palms.""That's the only way to feel balls, man."You both slap one another on the back and head for the showers.> More homoeroticism with Alex.> Continue elsewhere.> Write-in.
>>42385473>> Continue elsewhere.Lets not embarrass him further. Also, now'd be a good time to check in and see if Angie has picked up anything.
>>42385473> Continue elsewhere.Let's hit on that hot chick.What's her name?Joan, right. I bet she wants the D.
>>42385473> More homoeroticism with Alex.> Continue elsewhere.

bumping for OP
>>42388395I WAS PLAYING MAGIC SHUT UP GUYS>>42385964>>42385771>>42385573You move on along with Alexander to Angie, both drenched in sweat and tacky gym shorts. She casts an odd glance at the two of you."Oh, yeah, me and the little guy just sort of. Went at it. Got real acquainted.""Yeah, even if he likes to hit me hard from behind." you remark.Angie's still looking awkwardly at you."Anyways, what've we got?""Dr. Thursday is being flown in as we speak. As for Dr. Wednesday, he has a coming press conference in a week. You'll be shipped out three days prior on protection detail, and eventual extraction.""Cool!

>>42389139>>42389108>>42389002You and Alexander take a shower in the same stall, and the both of you feel confident enough to look at the other's junk without any weird feelings.okay they're a little weirdDrying off, you both head into the lockers and glance at one another picking up your things."So, uh..." you start."Something on your mind?""...I read you and Iskandir were close."He stops, mid wipe of the towel on his chest."...I don't consider him a brother anymore."That means he did consider him a brother once. Ouch."...Still, that's got to hurt fighting him.""He's not a friend at this point. He's a mission. And we complete missions. It's the point when we put all the fun and games aside.""That's a little bleak, don't you think?""It's what keeps me from staying up at night, so I'll think what I damn well please."Yeesh, sore spot."...I'm sorry for pressing hard on it.""It's okay. The therapists who keep pushing it? Yeah, I hit them.""Look," he starts, slapping your shoulder, "you? You're a brother. Not that guy."Damn, you feel a little heartwarmed at that.> Well, time to do training.> Awkward stare.> Kiss Alexander
>>42389507>dat spoilerOP, are you asking for us to bring this quest into your magical realm at this point?Cause if so, do it.> Kiss Alexander
>>42389643I'm a lesbian, dude. I just think it's fucking hilarious.

You mutter something about 'later-maybe-there's-time-then' (which makes no sense even to you) and so you're off like a bullet, changing clothes mid-sprint to more standard attire for yourself.Not talking about this with anyone, nope nope nope nope nope.> Tell someone (include who as write-in).> Write-in.> NAH MAN DON'T ASK DON'T TELL SHIT FUCK UH

"I'm going to come in, is that okay?""...YES!?"She slowly creaks the door open, walking in hesitantly before sitting beside you, hands folded neatly in her lap."...Why were you screaming?""...J-Joan, you're a lesbian, right?"Your social skills are lacking, in case you were unawares."...Yes?""D-Did you ever play basketball with a girl and then--""Kiss her in the locker room?" she finishes."OH GOD, SO IT IS TRUE!""...I have no idea what you're talking about, but when you ask about my sexuality and there's sports involved, I kind of assume the conclusion.""I-I don't know what the hell is going on, okay?"Joan pats your shoulder."Hey, life's a long road, and you're gonna find some weird shit along the way.

>>42396553Nice, Bruh. What's your tally?
>>42396553Alas, one datum does not a trend make.How many people do you know who are also from Wisconsin, and how many of them are serial killers?
>>42396640Well, I'm from Oregon, and don't know any serial killers, if that helps the chart.
>>42396640>How many people do you know who are also from WisconsinAll of them>and how many of them are serial killers?Well not all of them are serial killers. My friend Matt likes breakfast; he's a cereal killer. My friend Ashley is a coke head; she's an arterial killer. My friend John is a neat freak who always washes his hands; he's a bacterial killer. My cousin Ricky is a part of the Wisconsin Ghostbusters fan chapter; he's an ethereal killer. My friend Chris always plays Rebels in Battlefront II; he's an Imperial killer. My friend Tess ruins all of our improvisation comedy gigs; she's a material killer. My brother Cody spreads STDs to random sluts he meets on the internet; he's a venereal killer.Me, though, I just stab people.
>>42396770>Material killerShe must not be a very good comic.
>>42396816SHE IS THE WORSTI should stab her one of these days

>>42397634Nah, that one guy who quit the thread? He's from Wisconsin.And he's coming for me.
>>42398355Pls no.Just be sure to go Home Alone on his ass.
>>42397404>>42397634"So...who was The Conqueror to you?"Joan scoffs a bit, crossing her legs and re-placing her hands on top."Conqueror...bullshit.. Just the staff who didn't know him trying to make it less awkward for us. His name's Iskandir. We all know it is. We know he's the same man. No matter what happened to him, he's atomically the same man.""...Doesn't answer my question.""We were friends. Rivals, mostly, but friends at the end of the day. He got a little odd at times...really liked to ask about how he looked a lot of the time. He ended up screaming at some interrogatee we had to tell him he was pretty, or some shit."You raise an eyebrow."Oh, don't worry, the interrogatee ended up bashing his face against the wall until he died."That really doesn't help your confusion-slash-disturbance."Anyways, Iskandir was a good man. Emphasis on the was. There's not going to be any turning back.""But, that Hemoxin cure--""What about it? You bring him out of that haze, and you know what'll happen? He's gonna be on suicide watch 24/7 for what he became under the effects of it. Even if he doesn't do that, you know how many crimes he's wanted for? He can't lead a normal life, no matter what. Death is the only option.""That's harsh for someone you call a friend.""My 'friend' died the day those warheads blew up."Ouch.> Maybe it's time to hit the hay and come back with the escort mission.> Write-in.
