The continuing adventures of an anon and his vampire girlfriend.Twitter:https://twitter.com/QuestGuy1Your supervisor deftly dodges Char's leg sweep and pounces on her, pinning her shoulders to the mat.She crouches over her very catlike while Char tries to twist free to no avail. "Give up kitten?" She offers."Ah, darn. I hate to end this in a blowout but I give."Nayara gives Char a hand up. "You got to work on your ground game. I can teach you how to get free of that hold." She brushes off some fur stuck to Char's hair. "But you're doing well for someone that's only fought as a hobby before.""I thought I'd surprise you with that leg sweep back there.""You did, but being an SI means knowing how to react to being surprised. There's a lot to learn if you really want to become one kitten.""I do! It just makes so much sense to become one you know, with you here and Benny working with Anon, its almost as if God is telling me to be an SI!"Benny rolls his eyes on the couch. "You two coming? The pizza isn't going to stay hot."
>>48553472Hooo boy let the fun begin!Time to see how Nayara feels about us. I mean, she seems to already know that we're in a relationship. So that's fun.Here is advantages/disadvantages.
>>48553472Char, Benny, Sibella, Costilla, Nayara, and you all gather at a long cheap table near the center, a holdover from the warehouse's days as furniture storage. You clear off the E-tool repair parts and electronic vampire tracking equipment and place your treasure trove of pizzas in their place."Heh." Nayara chuckles. "Normally it ENDS with pizza."Everyone stares."Brazillian humor, don't worry about it. Anyway it was't that funny to begin with. Thank you for bringing the peace offering Anon.""We can do a perimeter search or something." Black Falcon says. "I mean the CAT and I aren't exactly apart of your team and I know how you guys are with your privacy and secrets. I got a secret identity to. That's kind of like what you people have. Its enough for me to not want to be bother anyway.""Well I don't know about that Mr. Super-hero." Nayara says rather casually filling her plate with several slices of Hawaiian and meat lovers. "You're basically a second Benny to us at this point.""Now what does that mean?" Benny asks."I think you should get in on this pizza party." Nayara turns to you. "That is if Anon doesn't mind there being three cats at the table? You don't have allergies do you Anon?"The way her green eyes look at you and the way her smile slightly curves upwards...you feel as if she's trying to be friendly. And maybe the friendliness is genuine. But your honed SI senses tell you that you're being watched. She's trying to take your measure as leader. Because even if she's your supervisor you and her both know that you lead the team. Their hearts belong to you.ALLOW BLACK FALCON AND THE CAT IN ON THE MEETING? >>48553574Thanks once again faithful keeper of the stats!
>>48553628I'd allow them into the meeting. Especially since some of the stuff pertaining to yesterdays' adventures does involve BF/The CAT.>ThanksHey, I'm happy to help as I can. May not always get as many chances to contribute all the time with new responsibilities, but I'm going to do what I can.This is more for Mechagirl...which worries me greatly. But I'll contribute when I can there.
>>48553628allow them, back be ready to kick them out if it gets to Pope-y in here
>>48553628After the team up with The Cat, I feel like she and Black Falcon can have some pizza with the party.
>>48553628Allow them to stay, they are trustworthy enough and we may need them in the upcoming days. Just be ready to ask them to exit for a moment if things get sensitive.
>>48554030>>48553838>>48553720"Sure. Get over here BF! We got things to talk about."You look at Nayara. She just keeps her friendly, casual smile."I don't want to be a problem." He says taking a seat. "You guys want me to leave at any time I can." He presses a button on his gauntlet and his face plate slides open to reveal a surprisingly youthful looking face-full cheeks and big round eyes. "I'll have some pepperoni please.""I don't like you. Or you." The CAT says through his suit. "Little domesticated kitties of things with wings. They could put the two of you together and I'll still be twice the feline."Char looks nervously Nayara."Well aren't you just adorable?" Nayara coos. "Why yes you are twice the feline!""Stop that. Stop all of that." The CAT replies. "I'm serious. I hate you.""How do I pet her?" Nayara asks BF. "Do I just touch your arm or something?""I hate you.""There's a spot on my gauntlet that simulates tactile data for her...""BF DON'T YOU DARE!" The CAT hisses."She is just the cutest isn't she?" Nayara asks Abdiel."I know right? She's all fangs and spitting until the sensitivity comes out." Abdiel says,"She reminds me of a bad spirit." Char adds gravely. "Especially how she lives in your armor. I don't know if I'd call that cute.""Well at least one of you bird-fearing idiots knows that I'm not cute. A state of the art hunter-killer program is not "cute"!""It's like a touch screen..." BF says with a goofy grin on his face. "You just touch it and she feels it. I've calmed her down a few times with it...""BF IF YOU LET THAT NUN TOUCH ME YOU"LL NEVER SLEEP AGAIN! I'LL SCREAM OUT OF EVERY AUDIO CHANNEL!""It's fine, it's fine." Nayara says. "Maybe one day you'll let me, right kitten?""One day in Hell maybe.""She can't uh...bite you through the touch screen, can she?" Char asks cautiously."No." BF says."YES." The CAT says."No, babe...it's a touch screen." Benny says. 'A touch screen. Come on."-cont
>>48554312"I know that Benny!" Char snaps. "But I mean that's just armor he's wearing but it can do so much other stuff and yesterday they were inside a video game-""I assure you she can't bite." BF says."I totally can bite you. Through the touch screen.""She can't.""I can. Fear me.""Char..." Benny says holding her hand. "I promise you that you have nothing to fear from the microchip mouse hunter. Now don't we have more important things to talk about?" He says grumpily.SAY/DO?NEXT SCENE?ASK TO PET THE CAT?
>>48554371Lets get down to business.To defeat, the Master.
>>48554371"As someone who spent a fair bit of time with the cat in cyber space, I can tell you with certainty that she is not liable to bite."Then we walk up to her give BF a "may we?" look, and then pet her.Then we move onto the next scene.
>>48554371touch the CATDo it now
>>48554371We don't need to pet the cat, we have already been through plenty of bonding with her. At this point all it would do is annoy her.
>>48554653So is that a changed vote to petting CAT or...?
>>48554753No, no petting. Talk of demon cats made me remember this. If I have to have night terrors so does everyone else.
>>48554547I shall break the tie.Pet the cat. It will be funny. Then we can get down to business.
>>48554807it looks like we're petting, but we should be polite about it, she did save us in Quest World, after all
>>48554939Hey Crunch! Good to see you again!
>>48554939Crunch lives!>PetYou calmly get up and walk over to BF's side. With a gesture you indicate that you'd like to pet the CAT.Benny snerks.Char bites her lip.Abby nods her head.Sibella rolls her eyes.Nayara watches.BF slides a panel on his forearm to reveal a flat, smooth surface.ROLL 3D20 TO PET THE CAT

>>48555107>>48555173>>48555222The cat is mildly disappointing.
>>48555240Dissapointed, not dissapointing, whatever.Also, I prefer the Airplaine, Brain Eater, Fine Tooth Comb, Turtle Neck and Kali Ma
>>48555222My cat loves the thinker and turtle neck.

YOU?""Yeah its me. Player 2 remember?"The cat hisses...but mostly doesn't seem to mind.Benny chuckles. Char smacks him on the back of his head."Well..." The CAT says after a moment. "Are we good now? Did you get your fill of love and attention?""Did you?" You ask."Just go start the meeting already, god. You're like the worst leader in the history of leaders leading the most incompetent group of bird-lovers of all time."You finish with a final scritching and you think you hear a muffled meow crackle from the audio unit as you take your hand away.BF gives the CAT some attention as you head back to your seat."I hate you BF.""I hate you too the CAT." All eyes are on you. It's time to get things organized.There is a lot to talk about and share, and you DO NOT have to share everything.SAY/DO?ITEMS OF INTEREST:SO ME AND SIBELLA ARE NOW AN ITEM...CHAR AND WINNIE BOTH WANT TO JOIN UP.

>>48555963How's the art coming along? You been keeping up with Mechagirl? There's been a lot of stuff that I know you'll enjoy.
>>48555653>So Hello Nayara...Nayara chuckles as you mention "chain of command". "Oh no no no, I'm not here to take over or anything like that. You guys got a good system in place and I don't want to mess with that. Think of me like...an adviser!""Oh you're more than that!"Char says admiringly. "You're here to help us beat the Master! You're like the cavalry!""Oh no, no kitten. I'm just here to watch and step in only if I need to or if Anon wishes me to.""What exactly did Michael tell you about us? I mean our mission and why he felt you had to fly in from Brazil?" You ask."Yeah. What dirt did big Mike dish on us?" Benny asks trying to show support for your side of the conversation.Char wallops him. And then Costilla. And even Abby phases a kick through his head."Ow! Hey! Quit it!""I'm sorry Nayara, my boyfriend is such an ass at times."Costilla nods."He's our idiot." Abby says. "Pay no attention to him.""Yes yes yes." You try to bring the conversation back on track. "What did Michael say?""Well, he told me that you guys encountered a horrible wizard, a demon summoner of no mean skill, and that it was putting a lot of pressure on your team, keeping you from acting at your full potential. I'm here to make sure the pressure doesn't make you guys crack. I'm here to let you guys know that you aren't alone.""He said we were cracking under pressure?""Acting strange. Making ill-advised decisions. Don't take it the wrong way. You know how the job is, we find ourselves out of our depth all the time. The community of the church helps pick up the slack when we stumble, helps put us on our feet again." She puts her hand over her heart. "I represent that community."Char sighs in admiration. Benny rolls his eyes."Okay. What do you mean by ill-advised decisions?""A quick change of leadership during a crisis. A sudden fraternization during a crisis..." She cuts her eyes at Sibella."We're going to have to talk about us." Sibella states firmly-cont
>>48556065art's coming along, I'm actually thumbnailing and scripting some comics for the threads right now Diner scene with Sibella and Anonart trance for mechagirl something goofy for me for both threadsI also been doodling designs for charlotte, but I'm not used to doing anthromorphic animals, 's a little tricky. and yeah, I been following mechagirl, our dads are going to be SOOOOO mad that we sold that weaon
>>48556170Nayara nods. "And Michael believes that in the chaos and violence of the Master's attack you have forgotten the purpose of you being here in Coolsville...." She yawns like the cat she is. "Oh it was such a long flight over here...what was your mission again? I'm such a forgetful cat!" She rubs the back of her head in mock embarrassment.You feel the tension at the table step up a notch. Abby subtly puts her hand on your shoulder. Costilla touches his chin. Benny clenches his teeth.SAY/DO? WHAT WAS OUR MISSION?DO WE COMMENT ON OUR "ILL ADVISED DECISIONS?" DO WE DEFEND THEM?
>>48556245Never Complain; Never Explain
>>48556245Our mission is to learn what Sibella was doing this previous year. Assure her that we will eventually bring it up during pillow talk.
>>48556245Our mission is to investigate Sibella Dracula and what she has been doing for the past year. I have as well taken it upon myself to direct our attention to the master as he poses a threat to the house of Dracula and our own interests.
>>48556346Yeah, I think this is the best worded option. I see through her test.
>>48556229Glad I am not the only person who thinks that. Hope the weapon is good.
>>48556346>>48556259>>48556326>>48556379"Our mission is to investigate Sibella Dracula and what she has been doing for the past year. I have as well taken it upon myself to direct our attention to the master as he poses a threat to the house of Dracula and our own interests.""Yes. That was it. Wasn't it." She says in a low serious voice. Then she smiles. "Yeahhhhh I can kind of see how dodging demon attacks can get a person off track. And we can't find out what she was doing if she's kidnapped by a crazy wizard can we?""No we cannot.""But you're right here, right now, with us." She says turning her piercing green eyes on Sibella. "You're save and among friends who you trust. Or so Michael tells me. Why don't you tell us what you were up to during your vacation Miss Dracula?"LET SIBELLA ANSWER?ANSWER FOR HER?
>>48556561Let Sibella answer. If she refuses to answer then don't pressure her to.
>>48556561Let Sibella take this one. There isn't a way that I can see that end well for us if we answer for her. At least Nayara gets a sense of how guarded Sibella has been about this from asking herself. Shes trying to get our guard down and play us with her laid back attitude don't let her.
>>48556561>Ask Sibella to tell us about her time away. Make her feel like she's answering us, not some nebulous cat representative of an organization that has dedicated itself towards killing her fellows-gone-mad. She'll probably know what we're trying to do, but appreciate it anyways.
>>48556676>Ask Sibella for NayaraDO WE DO THIS?
>>48556561>ANSWER FOR HER?Please. She'd tear our throat out if we tried to pull a Boss Boyfriend power move like that. In front of others, that is. Alone in the bedroom. that might be a different story.Let the lady speak for herself.Unrelated: The subtitles on my DVD of Ghoul spell her name Cybela, which is obviously wrong, BUT: when do we get Sibella to admit that she insisted on spelling it like that during her Cyberpunk/Cybergoth phase back in the 80s/90s?
>>48556758>80's/90'sIsn't she the youngest one?
>>48556862>>48556758She went through a cyberpunk phase during high school when she saw Dot.Hack SIGN on Toonami.
>>48556897tell me she at least played the first game, too
>Let Sibella answerShe meets Nayara's gaze steadily."I understand. Believe me. I'm keeping secrets from you and..." She spares a glance in your direction. "And I'm sorry, but I have my reasons to keeping secrets. I cant tell you what I've been doing this past year.""Sibella no..." Abby mutters."We're fighting a guy so mysterious we only know him as "The Master", who nearly killed Anon with an electric vampire -thing- and nearly killed you with a vampire on the Vatican's top ten list. And you can't tell us anything about what you were doing?" Nayara seems less jocular."I'm sorry. I can't. I have my reasons. I promise you that what I was doing has nothing to do with the Master.""That you know of..." Costilla says with a glance at you that seems to mean "I'm sorry". "But what if you're wrong? You've said you know about as much about the Master as we do. What if he's involved in your secrets in some way you can't see?""And me revealing my secrets to you, that might bring it to light?" Sibella asks him skeptically."It might. But we'll never know unless you tell us.""I can't.""Why not?" Nayara asks looking around the table. "We're all on the same side here right? I mean aren't we all?"Your friends all risk hesitant nods of agreement. You all are friends. Right?"The Vatican has its own secrets. I don't see why the House of Dracula can't.""Would you like to look at something in the hidden libraries?" Nayara asks. "Is there any secret we're keeping that you'd like known? Just ask and I'll do anything in my power to bring it to light.""No....""Because all you need is a good reason and we'll share our secrets. A good reason like "we're under attack by an evil wizard and need to get a handle on the situation."""I understand this is difficult. I understand this put me in a bad light.""I don't think I'm the only one uncomfortable about you keeping secrets." Nayara looks around the table. "Am I?"-cont
SHIT I've missed a lot.Err, anyway, let Sibella answer?>>48556897Sibella being into that sounds adorable.
>>48557496...I'm not sure I like Nayara.
Also, hiya, QG, how ya doing?
>>48557496So uh this is going to play on tht whole "Sibella and Anon both make a point of being open to each other" then?
>>48557598THAT whole thing
>>48557598Likely. They both do need to be more open, after all. Nothing Nayara is sayong is really wrong. She's just explaining things in business terms.
>>48557661Well, let's hope it doesn't go to hell, then.It's taken a lot of effort for everything to generally work out...
>>48557496"She's got a point Anon." BF says. "I got a secret ID but when people I can trust ask me for it I give it to them.""Feh!" The CAT spits. "Let the vampire keep her secrets. It's not like she's a danger to us. She turns on us we kill her. That's the rules.""CAT..." BF flicks his arm. "Shut up...""Maybe she can't tell us." Benny says. "Like she swore an oath or something. Or people die if she spills the beans. Or like, something like that...""Can you tell us even that little bit? Can you tell us why you can't keep a secret?"Sibella shakes her head slowly. "I don't want to risk leaking even that much. I'm sorry."Nayara looks at Sibella curiously. Her expression is almost...studious."...Well maybe its just none of our damn business." Benny says. "It's life or death or its just something stupid and embarassing, its her business.""...Its also our business Benny." Char says, a deep frown crossing her face. "She can't keep it secret because we're in this together. Nayara's right. Miss Dracula...you shouldn't keep secrets from us!" "Char!" Benny exclaims."Benny, she's right! She's just right!""No." All eyes turn to Abby as she hovers over the table. "No. I trust Sibella. I couldn't...live with myself if I didn't. I trust her completely. If she wants to keep secrets I'm sure its only in the best interest of the group."Costilla nods at you. You know where the stubborn old man stands. He's wanted her secrets from the very beginning.The team seems divided. Where do you stand?ASK SIBELLA TO SHARE HER SECRETS?ASK NAYARA TO BACK OFF?>>48557598>>48557636>>48557661>>48557676Bingo. we have a big choice here.Do we trust Sibella to keep secrets? Do we trust her not to be mad if we ask her to share? Do we trust our teammates to have different opinions than our own?It's easy to trust. It's HOW you trust that's hard.>>48557501Wait until you see her room...
>>48557743Well fuck me.What do we do, everyone?
>>48557743>Wait until you see her room...Are you saying she wouldn't just panic and speed around removing every trace of these sort of thing the first time we get to her room?
>>48557743I.. I think I'm going to go with trusting Sibella.
>>48557743Her secrets are the original purpose of our mission, and we do intend to learn them. However, it has become clear that the Master and his demon attacks are a more urgent and critical concern. We can investigate Sibella at a later time, for now all this prying is going to do is divide the team.
>>48557529Give her a chance. You got to see things from her perspective. I promise you she's not evil.>>48557796Well she'll try to hide everything...>>48557776This is probably the most tense point of this social encounter. The rest of the potentially 7 points to cover at the meeting won't be as tense.
>>48557820Is this a vote for trusting Sibella to keep secrets?
>>48557815Err, by which I mean let her keep the secret.>>48557820this guy has some good arguments for it.
>>48557743We trust Sibella enough that if she could tell us she would.
>>48557833>>48557833>Give her a chance. You got to see things from her perspective. I promise you she's not evil.Eh ok, sorry.Just feeling tense about this.
>>48557743"I want Sibella to tell us her secrets. However, I understand that if this is something that she will tell us on her own terms. I trust her, and I also trust that she will tell us, when she is ready."
>>48557833>Well she'll try to hide everything...Would be fun seeing her do that, even if Anon himself has no clue.Plus would lead to extra tension if we ever get to have fun in her room since she'd need to keep track of where everything is
>>48557910DO WE SAY THIS?>>48557820OR THIS?
>>48557937Could we, like, combine then?One isgood for Sibella, another seems good for others.
>>48557820>thisit's clear that, whatever Sibella's secrets, she'll tell us when she thinks it's safe and right now, with the master running around, it will never be a safe time to tell us.
>>48557910IF we have to choose,go with this one.
>>48558000Fuck me I picked the wrong one - I meant this. >>48557820
>>48557937I vote second choice
Our job was to investigate not interrogate
>>48558075Err, yeah, this is true...So you still think thesecond choice is the best?
>>48558118The second choice is the original option. QG just quoted them out of time.
>>48557820"Her secrets are the original purpose of our mission, and we do intend to learn them. However, it has become clear that the Master and his demon attacks are a more urgent and critical concern. We can investigate Sibella at a later time, for now all this prying is going to do is divide the team.""You're right. The last thing we need is tension on the team" Nayara looks at Sibella. "Especially with a threat this huge." "I'm sorry everyone. Really I am." Sibella says.Abby touches her shoulder. "You have nothing to be sorry about.""It's not the easiest thing in the world to share secrets." BF says. "I recommend getting it off your chest as soon as possible though. It's going to eat you up inside if you don't. I know this firsthand.""But why won't you tell us!" Char shouts. "We're fighting for our lives here and you can't even tell us something as simple as what you were doing last year! I mean w-what do you think we're going to DO with your secret? Hurt you somehow?" She looks distressed. She is taking this so the wrong way."Charlotte, I understand why you're angry.""No you don't! No you don't!" She shouts. "You don't keep secrets from friends! Not ever!""Char..." Benny grabs her arm."Don't you "Char" me Benny!" She yanks her arm free. "How can you trust her? How can you sit there and agree with her and not...and not me?"Abdiel rushes to her side. "Char please, this isn't like you..."She clams up and lowers her head, stifling a sob."Kitten. Be cool." Nayara pats her on the back. "Miss Dracula has made her decision, and Anon stands by it. He is leader here. We must respect that."Tense seconds drip over the table."...So moving on!" Nayara says returning to her usual jollity and cutting Char a slice of pizza with her claw. "Oh boy are there a lot more things to talk about then this, lots to talk about..." She looks at you. Ball is in your court.-cont
>>48558141Yeah, ok.Still, you think it's the better option?
>>48557937the second option, we'll investigate later
>>48558264It was, I didn't vote on tbe showdown, and I had the second choice. Admitedly the first was better, and the one we went with.
>>48558263We shouldn't say this, ofcourse but, uh... didn't she keep things secret from Benny?
>>48558263Right what do we wanna go with next, everyone?
>>48558313Nope, for as far as we know, Benny was aware of her spirtual capabilities realtively early into the relationship.
>>48558263"Oh, and Anon, by the by you know we haven't had a chance to spar what with you ducking out on me in the middle of my cat nap. I think we ought to get down to it after the meeting, you know, to show off our saints to each other and sharpen our claws. I mean we ought to if you aren't busy or anything..."You get the hidden meaning. She wants to talk. Privately.ACCEPT OFFER TO SPAR AFTER THE MEETING?SAY/DO?5 REMAINING TOPICS TO COVER:SO ME AND SIBELLA ARE NOW AN ITEM...CHAR AND WINNIE BOTH WANT TO JOIN UP.

>>48558332Ah.>>48558337Shit... something easier right now, then we move to us being an item and the demons and so on?And, if we bring out the demons, make sure to mention that we will be talking with one of the bosses
>>48558371Do we wanna bring it up already after something tense like this?
>>48558332>>48558313No. She opened up about stuff early in their relationship.She's taking this really hard for a number of reasons. She doesn't have a lot of friends, her attempts to fit in with the local beast pack (Winnie's pack) and the local magic circle went over about as well as Benny's attempts to fit in during high school.And her parents keeping the whole evil voodoo cats thing from her. Her idealized view of Christianity is something where truth comes out, where sins are revealed and all is forgiven. Secrets are bad. After all, what do you have to hide from good people?That's why she's taking it so hard.You can help Benny win her over during their date tonight...
>>48558393This is actually a really good point.Do you want to break up the tension by quickly talking about something else? Something not on the list of topics?
>>48558337Accept offer to spar.Lets open it to a vote if we get the invisible college in on this. Say that we believe they could offer a different opinion we had not thought of but the floor is open to suggestions.
>>48558393might as well get all the "bad news" out of the way first
>>48558395Ah, I see... poor Char.Hope we can properly help.>>48558414Maybe about what we want added to our ride since Winnie's gonna help with that?
>>48558337>Accept>WE STILL HAVE AN OFFER OF ASSISTANCE FROM THE INVISIBLE COLLEGE. SHOULD WE INVOLVE THEM? WE GOT THEIR SUMMON CRYSTAL RIGHT HERE...
Eh ok, let's go with invisible college right now then?
>>48558337We should accept the spar. Take our licks and chat about various topics alone.Lets talk invisible college first. Or something not on the list of topics so far.Maybe talk about Nayara herself, what her background is, things like that? Something to throw back her way before we get back to it being about us?
Hey, nice, we got over 100 posts, that's good.Hopefully we'll continue on a good long while.
>>48558518Mm Good idea. Leys ask about her and then do the invisible college.
How about Invisible College > maybe somethingabout Nayara > our friendly demons > Sibella+us are an item now > Sibella's brother's challenge > Char and winnie joining?That seem like a decent order?
>>48558585What' everyone think?
>>48558585Its a decent skeleton to work with. But I won't commit too far into it. Just because a meeting like this is kind of tricky to truly plan in depth.
>>48558707Fair enogh, fair enoug.
So I think the invisible college has the most votes?
>Ask about Nayara and then Invisible College"I accept. You seem to have some moves back on the mat with Char. How's your E-tool skills?""Oh you'll see, you'll see.""Tell us about yourself Nayara. Michael didn't tell us much about you except that you're a highly disciplined and respected SI. He didn't even mention you were a beast person.""He didn't?" Nayara smiles. "So my appearance surprised you some?""A little. I mean I'm no stranger to beast people but they aren't exactly as common as humans.""Ah yeah. Your file mentioned how you got close to the local pack after that Christmas incident. Good job with that by the way.""The local pack is um, nice..." Char says trying to sound like she actually knows the pack. "Kind of isolationists I guess, but that's for any group of people right?""Never was much into the whole pack thing myself." Nayara says. "The whole telepathic empathy thing just seemed more intrusive then comforting to me.""R-Really? I feel the same way actually!""I was always a bit of a loner as a kid. I'd go off and read by myself or something while the other kittens played.""I was the same way, you know I just never seemed to fit into a group, I just had so many thoughts in my head all the time that I just never knew what to say-""It didn't stop me from becoming the local alpha though."Poor Char can't relate to that."You know how packs are, lots of fighting lots of fighting lots of fighting. I guess I kind of liked that part. Not the leading people part but the fighting part.""So you were an alpha?" You ask."For awhile. It got me the notice of the Church. You know Brazil, one of the most Cat-holic countries on Earth. Ha Ha. What easier way to recruit than by looking up the local alpha?""So you became an SI late in life?""When I was a teenager. You were a kid though, right? You started real young.""Yeah I did.""You know that stuff is kind of controversial, starting the training that young."
>>48558905>"You know that stuff is kind of controversial, starting the training that young."Gave us a family though.So on the whole it worked out pretty well.I bet The Cat is thinking about that shard flashback sequence right about now
>>48558905"They say it screws up your ability to socialize.""Well I can't say he's the most eloquent individual." Sibella says. "But you clean him up you can take him out in public with you.""I was the one that trained him." Costilla says. "I saw the potential in him. Even as a child he was exceptional. He was not like other children. To have treated him like other children would have denied him his potential.""You must have been on to something Padre." Nayara says. "Three Saints...and its uncommon to have two!""You have three yourself right?" You ask."Yeah I do. My girls." She flashes you a predatory grin. "You'll see them for yourself when we throw down later."SAY/DO?GO TO INVISIBLE COLLEGE DISCUSSION?
>>48558980 She is. Which is why she's being quiet
>>48558985Move onto Invisible college
>>48558905Yay! Bonding!Char desperately trying to get approval by agreeing to everything Nayara says is kind of cute. She's going to need to work on that confidence though.Getting some Fox Fire vibes out of her right now.
>>48558985Grin back"Gonna bet mine are better"I assume this is something that SIs do? Brag about how awesome their saints are?>>48559004I really like The Cat,she's so prickly yet nice underneath
>>48559033Char really is very cute.
>>48558985"They have treated me well. While I can't say I've had the most traditional upbringing. I can't say I've been lacking in parental figures both human, angel and spirit I'm thankful for that.">Move onto college.
>>48558985>I have been lucky enough to make my own family, both inside the church (nod to Costilla and Abby) and outside.>Discuss the College
>>48559055Its the kinda weirdly submissive not quite pleading for approval from their superior type of thing.
>>48559036"Mine are better." You grin back."Ohhhhh we'll see, we'll see.""While I can't say I've had the most traditional upbringing. I can't say I've been lacking in parental figures both human, angel and spirit I'm thankful for that.""You got a pretty good family set up here." Nayara glances around. "It's a good, strong family.">>48559147 Fox Fire Char crossover art of them arguing over who would win in a fight between Nayara and Lesath when? >Discuss the college"Well okay. Time to get this out of the way. The Impossible College sent a big crystal ball thing with orders to break it when we have time. It's their form of a cellphone, I don't know. But the point is we need to decide whether we get them involved or not-""Absolutely not!" Char and Abby say in unison."Really now? Come on you two-" Benny says. "What can it hurt to have them check this place out? They wave their magic wands over the place and if they find a clue about he Master good, if not we can tell them to leave. It's not hard.""I am for it." Costilla says. "What they do is really no different then what Char does, and they're potentially very useful."Char glares at him."I am NOT like them!""Indeed, I have to say she's not." Nayara says. "Her spirit creation isn't as...extreme or as dangerous.""Well if I get a vote I'm voting yes." Black Falcon says. "The 2nd Birdman was a member, and I've always looked up to him."The CAT hisses at the mention of the name."Now hold on there." Nayara says. "Are we voting on this?"ARE WE? OR DO WE PULL RANK AND DECIDE OURSELVES?
>>48559371Vote.This is about everyone, thus everyone gets a vote.
>>48559371see what Nayara thinks before deciding
>>48559371I think we can call it as a vote. Mainly because its a very important issue to decide on. And if we say no now, it does not exclude us from doing it at a later date.
>>48559371>Ask Nayara's opinion on the mattershe may have had more contact with the College, so any insight would be valuable
>>48559371Lets hold a vote, anyone can make an argument for or against either side. However emphasize we're looking for actual arguments and not just how people feel or personal bias.
>>48559456So ask Naraya if she knows anything in particular and then hold a vote?
>>48559409"Well what do you think?""I think we'd be better without them.""Yeah!" Char adds."We already know so little about the Master...and other things. We don't need to fill up with strangers. We're under the Master's shadow. We need to hunker down and close the windows while the storm is raging, you know what I mean?""So don't trust the wizards right?" Benny asks."Don't trust anyone outside our group Benny. That's what I'm saying."VOTE?
>>48559371>spoilerWell we do have a good fellow who's good at drawing stuff, perhaps ask them?
>>48559456>Inb4 it comes down to anon deciding due to split vote.I'm voting yes, if I were THE MASTER I'd use the Impossible College to hide in plain sightClearly we need to run parallel investigations.
>>48559499I say vote, yeah.No one can get upset at us for that can they?
>>48559499>I appreciate your input, Nayara.>Vote.
>>48559520...Oh goddammit now you've got me paranoid.
>>48559499"Then lets put it to a vote. This will decide how we deal with the college for the foreseeable future. If we decide we need them later that's one thing otherwise they are off the table. All those in favor?"I think this is more valuable as a team building experience. Although I think the college could only help. Make sure C.A.T and BF get a vote
>>48559499Its time to call a vote. Everyone explain reasons, and then cast your vote.I am leaning towards no, because Nayara is right. We need to reign ourselves in a little. When we gain more info, then we can maybe consult the college. Keep the crystal, but don't use it.
Actually would the College know more than, say, Belial and co?
>>48559593Don't forget our demons.Side note you think they'd recognize the magical signatures of the thing what summoned them in the first place?Also that might make now an opportune time to bring them up.
>>48559640I mean how much would the allied demons we have know of magic and such?
I'm starting to lean against itbecause, well... we have a lot of characters right now.I'm not sure we can really afford to have any more and keep any focus.
>>48559499no wizards yet
"Well lets vote. Everybody!""No." Nayara says simply."Yes." Costilla says."No no no." Abby says emphatically."Super. Powered. Wizards. With experience in dealing with weird shit and fighting evil wizards. Hell yes." Char gives Benny a glance that tells you that their date tonight is going to be rocky as hell."Never." She says"Yes." Black Falcon says."Do you even have to ask me? I'm not voting with the birds or fake cats."AW DAMN. THATS THE COTE BUT I SUDDENLY GOT TO GO. WILL TRY TO FINISH MEETING TOMMOROW IN THIS THREAD OR ANOTHER. Sorry about this....
>>48559809We forgive you this time, QGlooking forward to itso, are we voting wizard college or no, thread?I think we should
>>48559809Ah, well, thanks for letting us know?Good luck with whatever it is you've got going, QG.Hope we'll see more Sibella Quest soon!
>>48559849Is this meant to be like a permanent companion or just someone we ask for advice from time to time?
>>48559809Ita okay man. I am just glad we're moving forward. I am liking Nayara, but hope to see her in a less stressful environment. I think she's actually going to be an extra therapist for us.
>>48559871its probably just a glimpse into Tanisnon's lifehe'll most likely be the one helping us
>>48559809SoYes: Costilla, Benny, Black Falcon, The CatNo: Naraya, Abby, CharWonder what Sibella is gonna go for?If she goes "no" it'll be even.
>>48559849I am thinking no. We can always come back to them later.
>>48559871Not permanent, but they have the potential to join. There's two of them.Now I reallyyyyyy got to go!
>>48559937Really appreciate you sticking around to give us the info, QG.Nice of ya.And good luck with whatever it is you're doing!
>>48559937Thanks for running the game, Questguy
So do we wanna try and keep the threadalive for tomorrow?
>>48559809Probably for the best I can feel my decision making skills deteriorating with every drink of rum.
>>48559997I don't see why notwe've done more for less with Real Wendigo Hours
>>48559920No I think CAT Abstained
>>48560024This>>48559809>"Do you even have to ask me? I'm not voting with the birds or fake cats."Seemed to hint that she voted against the birds/fake cats.
>>48559499I'm voting yes, because we are in need of clues, but there is something to be said for sitting around and testing this thing's patience in an effort to make it screw up.However it has done so before, presumably much to its own chagrin so I don't know that we can just keep "Stalking Horsing" this thing.With that in mind, full disclosure.We've swayed some things it summoned.It's hard to say if this "the master" knows that.As far as I know it shouldn't be possible. However, it did happen They may be able to recognize it's magical signature, although that's certainly a thing I should verify first.So it's a tentative yes, unless that's not an option.>In case of hullabaloo"Yeah, no, I get it. They're dangerous and untrustworthy. But I've learned over the years that people are people, and it's worth trying to allow them their own sort of redemption if they so choose.The whole point of the book was that nobody's inherently worthy of God's grace and forgiveness but can be if they just choose to, right?""Angels are part of God's will, or an interpretatio, and they used to be. Cast off though they might be, it proves that even God can be conflicted sometimes doesn't it?""I'm just saying. If I can help anyone be at peace with themselves if nothing else, I'd say at least making a genuine attempt to do so is part of being a good Catholic.""I'm not saying I intend to 'save them' of course. But if I can help anyone save themselves, I would like to. Even if they don't take it.Failing that I can offer some level of understanding. Whatever comes next. Because we've all lost faith in others, or ourselves. Or been tempted in some fashion. We've all been there and that's okay.""Because at the end of the day, whatever we might choose, we don't have to live there. Whatever someone chooses is up to them though ultimately."
>>48560116>It's hard to say if this "the master" knows that.I think the Master must at least know that Foucalor now belongs to Sibella, he sent Bee to try and mess with her head.
>>48560156Fair. I just got on an assumption train that spilled into trying to justify metaphysics through a certain book by approaching perfection as transitory and allowing differences in God's behavior as shedding and picking back up occasionally various personifications of it's mixed with some version of Christian ideas on sin.Sorry.
>>48560240Nah, I liked it, it was an interesting read.
>>48560156The idea being shedding temporarily imperfect ideas allows God to maintain a transitory state. Though picking them up allows for adjustments where they'd be the right call and allow them to do their job regardless.May or may not be taking some apocrypha to do it, but eh.
>>48560285Thanks anon, not a Catholic personally but I figured some justification was in order if we did bring the demons up.Hopefully it was fairly alright and sound reasoning, but who knows?
>>48560403I think it fits with what's being built up by QG, maybe they'd get some ideas for what to do?
>>48560458Dunno. I was trying to make it fit though.Not sure how anybody'd react to:tl;dr: "Don't even start cat-nun. The first thing he did was make me memorize that book."is all.
Bump, and I'm heading off.Good luck with wendigo hours everyon.
>>48562289we don't need luck where we're going
What would a gender swapped Phanty halloween costume look like?
>>48562456That's a new one! Cute!>>48562507Considering that our version dressed as a dame from the noir film era. Top hat and coat tails?
daily, er, nightly reminder
>>48564419So since the fact that everything between Winnie and White Fell has been made clear to Sibella, what conflicts or issues do you think we will be tackling in White Fell quest?
>>48562616Who's the half girl?>>48564419disgusting and disturbing, fuck off tripfag.
>>48564438no real idea, I've only read the Sibella Quest stuff since I'm relatively new to this.For an uneducated guess, I'd have to say something along the lines of pack dominance and some type of cultural homogeneity among all beast people
>>48564491where's the tripfag senpai?I don't see anything wrong with that post
Not exactly quest related, but it is spooky /co/ waifu related.Is anybody interested in some lewds that I wrote about Gruftine and Nofre from School for Vampires?
mods are asleep post 3d waifus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yr-LkA4R_hISeemed almost appropriate.That or Journey.
>>48564824>lewds of GruftineIf she's an adult, Yes please

>>48569996She is an adulthttp://pastebin.com/6Yg1PCiaI wrote it for some guys on /aco/. Don't mind the mistakes, I wrote it at like 3 in the morning
>>48570164See you also have that egyptian girl, that's a nice one.
Hey guys! I'm back! Just let me get a few things taken care of.
>>48571690Welcome back QG
That Chronicles of Darkness thread with Winnie as the op was throwing me off
"And I'm for the Impossible College." Sibella says. "Sibella! You can't be serious!" Abby says."I'm sorry Abby. But this is seems to me to have to much alchemy and hermeticism to it and so little of what you normally deal with. We need a second opinion.""Hermeticism...I'm uh, familiar with it..." Char says cautiously, looking at Nayara for any signs of disapproval. Finding only a smile she continues. "What makes you say the Master has something to do with alchemy and hermeticism?""You create inner life with hermeticism right?" Sibella replies without missing a beat. "You create the "god within" like how you create your spirits out of your mental energy, right?"Char nods. "Demons work like that to, except its more like following a blueprint for creation or assembling a model kit as opposed to making something from the ground up."Char bristles at the mention of demons."What I'm saying is it seems that the Master has found some way to control a lot of powerful demons at once. Maybe its a Hermetic secret? We could always ask the IC, I'm sure they would know.""But would they even tell us? I mean even you don't tell us everything." Char says bitterly."We can only ask and wait."Nayara nods. "I agree with that sentiment." She says looking straight at you.What Sibella said, it was a good save, but given what you know about Sibella and Lucan and alchemy you have the feeling she meant something else about there being a connection between the Master and Hermeticism...VOTES ARE IN. IMPOSSIBLE COLLEGE LEADS BY 2. DO WE ACCEPT THIS VOTE OR OVERTURN IT?
>>48571812Do you have a link? That sounds kind of interesting.
>>48571880We started it, so yeah, let's stick by it or it'll just piss everyone off.
>>48571880>Char bristles at the mention of demons.Oooh boy.
>>48571880I think we can accept this vote. It was democratic and everyone has had a say. We can look to contacting them soon. Perhaps tomorrow, assuming that there is no time tonight.>>48571951Yeeeeeeep. Probably will want to handle that topic next, huh? Before we talk about Char and Winnie possibly partaking.
>>48572002I think we might also want Abby to officially declare her support of that, might smooth things over with Char.She wanted to show Focalor heaven, IIRC?
If we explain Belial and the others, Char's going to flip shit, because she'll be projecting her own inadequacies onto Anon.Probably.It'll get ugly, regardless.
>>48572035I suspect that she will as a matter of course. She's always been sympathetic to her formerly angelic collegues.
>>48572062I think Abby's gonna have some cat-hugging duties right now.
>>48572159Like, Char strikes me as the kind of person who, if she discovers something about the gang that she super doesn't approve of and might get her into catnun's good graces as an SI, she'd sell us down the fucking river.With the best of intentions.
>>48572220But we're gonna tell catnun as well?...Who, IIRC, QG mentioned would be cool with Belial since we get to set up ou super-awesome ride.
>>48571916>>48571964>Accept the vote"Okay. I'll call this vote to an end. We'll contact the IC." You hold the strange crystal globe in your hand. It feels cool to the touch, a little more than a glass or metal should. It looks snowy or misty behind the glass almost like a toy marble. You can see your reflection within it, obscured and cloudy though it may be."I guess we can crack this bad boy open tonight." You say. "Have a conference with whatever genie pops out.""It's a shame its so pretty." Sibella says. "It sort of reminds me of things my older sisters would collect. Strange and pretty.""We probably won't be here for the super wizards." Benny says. "Me and Char we uh, well you know we missed out on our date last night because of Atari Man so we were sort of figuring..." He grins sheepishly at Char who crosses her arms and looks sourly at him."Figuring WHAT Benny?""Ohhhh he's going to get it now..." Abby whispers in your ear."...Well, we were going to have our date tonight, right Char?"The grumpy Cajun just glares."...Well, we can reschedule again if you want?""If I want? I want to have to have a nice, romantic date.""Oh good! So we aren't rescheduling!""No we aren't. We aren't going to keep putting this off forever but you have another thing coming if you think its going to be romantic! It's going to be absolutely miserable!""So...you DO want to reschedule?""No.I want us to be miserable together.""Just claw him until he obeys you." The CAT complains. "God, be a feline for once in your life.""Well, can everyone else be here?" Black Falcon asks. "I"m not sure I will be. Herney and his men might take over for me. It depends if the old man has a job for us tonight or not."Sibella and your two fellow SIs say that they'll be here.>>48571951She doesn't know about the headmates. Its a subject we're going to have to be careful with.-cont
>>48572253Nayara is cool with demons.Char will be a fraidy cat.>>48572277SAY/DO?4 REMAINING TOPICS TO COVER:SO ME AND SIBELLA ARE NOW AN ITEM...CHAR AND WINNIE BOTH WANT TO JOIN UP. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT OUR ROSTER.WE NEED TO SHARE OUR DEMONS. GET THEM OUT AND LET THEM KNOW THEY'RE APART OF THE GROUP.....SO I'VE SORT OF BEEN CHALLENGED TO A DUEL BY SIBELLA'S BROTHER...NAYARA'S EXPRESSION: Intense Scrutiny, like a cat studying her prey.
>>48572277I feel like we should order Char to enjoy the romantic date, since, you know, the pope is paying for it
>>48572334>WE NEED TO SHARE OUR DEMONS. GET THEM OUT AND LET THEM KNOW THEY'RE APART OF THE GROUP..>And also make sure Abby handles the introduction.(But man Nayara is still being intense with the scrutiny...)
>>48572334>...SO I'VE SORT OF BEEN CHALLENGED TO A DUEL BY SIBELLA'S BROTHER...>Any ideas on how to turn this into something that's to our benefit?>>48572350also this
>>48572350Don't put pressure on the girl, man.
>>48572350>>48572368>Order her to enjoy her papal-paid date>>48572383>Don't pressure the kitty>>48572359>Demon party>>48572368>So...who gets to be my cheerleaders?Decisions Decisions...vote vote vote!
>>48572438Maintaining my vote for the Duel and Char to relaxIf she stresses too much, she'll start losing some of those nine lives
>>48572438Don't pressure the kitty.
>>48572383just because we are calling in atheist wizards and Sibella having trust issues doesn't mean she has to be poutty during a free romantic evening
>>48572438People please don't vote to pressure her.
>>48572474Wel how about phrasing it somewhat differently then?Like God would much prefer everyone being happy and thus it'd be nice if she wasn't miserable, as He loves everyone?
>>48572492yeah I'm down for thatbonus points if we mention something along the lines of "Abby would be saddy if she wasn't having fun"
>>48572541>>48572541Well, uh, what's everyone else think?QG is it workable?
>>48572438So introducing demons by way of abby, or something else?I've voted for demon introduction cause this seems a decent opportunity to get it out,since we kinda need it before we talk about including Char and Winie in the group.
Anyone else gonna vote?
>>48572586Totally workable. I think I can write a cute little scene>>48572744We are still tied at one each for demons and duels.
>>48572795>Totally workable. I think I can write a cute little scenethen I'd switch my vote from not pressuring to something with that
>>48572795>We are still tied at one each for demons and duels.Ah.Well, I'm still with demons.We can wait with talking about the duel until after we've resolved on how our group should look like.
Go with demons
"Ahem. Char, as leader of this SI cell I feel that I must advise you with all the authority vested in me to enjoy your evening with Benny and not to give him too much grief.""Or just stop toying with him like prey." The CAT complains. "Claw your mate until he recognizes your dominance.""He is not my mate, he is my boyfriend." Char corrects."We are warriors of God." You say. "God know we've been through hell recently. And he knows the worst likely isn't behind us. He's not going to want us to be miserable in the little free time that we have right?""...I guess you have a point." Char says."And Abby wants you to be happy and enjoy your time with Benny, right Abby?" You tug at her ankle."Uh....Yeah! Yeah!." She floats before Char and assumes her serene, practiced angelic demeanor. "Things have been so difficult, for everyone here and so confusing...""...I don't like the secrets." Char mumbles quietly to her. You only hear her because of your halo connection to Abby. "I hate having secrets kept from me."Abby leans down and kisses her forehead. "Give God time. Trust in his plan. And trust in his angel." She whispers in her ear.Char reaches for and squeezes her softly glowing hand.Abby squeezes back."So enjoy your date tonight! Relax!" She says aloud. "And if Benny gives you any grief you just tell me and I'll straighten him out!""But he can't see you...""So? It means I can get away with more." Abby winks mischievously."I'm going to give you a chance to make this a good evening Benny." Char says turning to her boyfriend. "We still have a lot to talk about though...""Yeah don't we usually?" Benny says. "Glad Abby decided to throw me a little miracle.""Not for your sake buster!" Abby sticks her tongue out, notices that she's in a room where most people can see her, and flaps to your side, blushing all the while.
>>48573334>Demons wins the voteBig question time. Ask Char to leave the room or have her stay?
>>48573356Char HATES secrets, keeping it from here will only make things worse>Let her stay>"Now that we've fostered a little more good will, allow me to completely negate it by mentioning the demons living inside myself and Sibella."
>>48573356give her and Benny the rest of the night off so we can talk without a Cajun Cat Meltdown
>>48573418>>"Now that we've fostered a little more good will, allow me to completely negate it by mentioning the demons living inside myself and Sibella."err... why do you wanna say this?And wouldn't it be better for Abby to introduce them?
>>48573444I was mostly joking.We should definitely not say that.Abby should definitely be the one to introduce them.
>>48573435This would be a good a subtle way to get her out of the room if you guys want to go that path.
>>48573516Well, not convinced but do people wanna go with that?If we do, we need to figure out one hell of a way to smoothly introduce them later.
>>48573334I'm glad that my suggestion went in!
>>48573418>>48573435>Tied>>48573540Is this a vote against giving them the night off?
>>48573619Do we need Char to be around for anything else?For intance, during our decision of how the group will look?Cause if so, yeah, this is a vote against.
>>48573666We coulddddd have her with us during our discussion of potential new recruits but we could also discuss it without her.Depending on how it goes it could be a good or bad thing for her to be present/absent.
>>48573860...Ah heck with it, unless someone comes up with a good reasoning against, I change my vote to just let them leave - I assume we can all work out some plan for how bet break it to her?
>>48573860lets talk about new recruits then send Benny and Char off to their dateTomorrow or the next day, when we have actual input, we inform Char of our demon brain children
>>48573926OK I could go with that.Benny would probably also ant it to work out well since we've given him an opening.
>>48573926But we need to have Char know about demons before she's recruited or she might be upset she was deceiver.
>>48574018I'm sure Benny's let some stuff slip, but who's to say she's actually going to be recruited.
If we don't come to an agreement would you make the deciding vote QG?>>48574069She wouldn't know about demons, that's why she'd be so upset.
Man not much activity going on right now...
>>48573619Send them off to awkward date land. When we have the whole team put up to speed we can all convince her this is not that big of a deal and that the demon asked for a young catgirl as a sacrifice [Rolling for initiative]
So they're going on a date now then?
>Exile to the date dimensionWriting!
Man as someone who finally got back into this thread after stepping away for a bit. I don't yet know if this was a good/bad thing.I suppose on one hand it allows us some time to decide about her wanting to be on the team without Char and Benny arguing back and forth. And if and when we add her to the team, we can introduce her to the trio or demons. Or I suppise just the nicer ones...
>>48574528Yeah I hope we did the rightthing here.
>>48574418yesssss this is what Crunch has wanted for months! MONTHS
>>48574850Do you have a relative who is a captain? No reason
"You know, we don't have much more to discuss here. Mostly tech specifications and budget allocations, lame stuff like that. Char, why don't you and Benny go ahead and get ready for that date?" You share a quick glance with Nayara. "I've been told that the Bluestone Casino has the best food right before the dinner crowd so you two best get ready.""Well okay." Char expectantly holds her hand out. Benny takes it and helps her out of her seat. "See. You can be a gentlemen."Benny gives a flourishing boy and kisses her hand. "Yes I can.""...You sure its alright we just take off like this?" Char asks her feline role model."Yeah yeah! You kids need to have some fun. It's not all intense debate and panic over crazy wizards in this SI business. Only mostly!""Come on Char. Give me a chance to give you a good time."Benny gives his cat-holic catgirl girlfriend a hug and looks at you over her shoulder. He points to his head and mouths "demons?" You nod."Don't you screw this up Benny." Char says. "Or I might just start listening to the CAT.""Smartest thing you've said all day." The CAT says.Char stands before Abby and strokes the tip of her stubby tail thinking of something to say. Abby, always knowing what to do in these sorts of situations, takes her hands up in hers. "It's going to be fun." She says. "Trust God, trust me, and trust Benny." She kisses her forehead. "Trust us all.""It was good seeing you again...I mean its always nice to see you. You're so perfect...Its like you breathe perfectly. Like you just floating and being is perfection.""Yeah yeah..." Benny gently pulls her away. "We got to make sure we're wearing something better than a T-shirt and sports bra for the Bluestone...""See you later Abdiel..." Char says on the way out of the warehouse door. "Oh! And Nayara! It was great seeing you again!" She says quickly sticking her head back through the door."You too kitten, you too." Nayara waves goodbye.
>>48574908Now Benny just needs to not fuck it up.Also, uh, is Char really planning on taking charge in the bedroom like The Cat seems to suggest?
>>48575014For someone like Benny, who's super power is blowing the fuck up and scaring the shit out of most everyone around him, it must be nice to give someone else control, particularly in such an intimate setting.Also probably why he's Anon's number 2 guy.
>>48574908"...Do you think we did the right thing?" Abby asks when the two lovers leave. "Did we?" Nayara asks you to your face."I think we did. No. I know we did." You reply, meeting her gaze. "We aren't going to keep her in the dark. But we don't need to talk about all this right now at this moment.""Keep her in the dark about what?" You see Nayara's long black tail swish through the air behind her."I suppose its time to get it out in the open." You and Sibella nod at each other. "You want to go first or should I?""Oh great." Abby bites her lip. "I hate it when I have a lot of relatives to talk to. They expect me to say something...""Relax Abby." Sibella says. "You'll be fine. Just remember if they can't let the past go its their fault, not yours. They're no different than grumpy vampire Barons that can't drop a grudge because someone tried to stake someone else back in Victorian England. And if I can deal with that nonsense you can deal with this nonsense.""Excuse me but I think I'm kind of lost here. What are we talking about?" Nayara asks.DO YOU BRING OUT BELIAL FIRST OR DO YOU HAVE SIBELLA GO FIRST WITH HER BOYS?
>>48575080Sibella goes first then we can ramp it up, get Nayara used to the idea before it all comes to a head.
>>48575080Ladies first.We can tell Belial that we're saving the best for last.Emphasis on best.
>>48575105Yeah there's no question that Belial is better.She's the OG.
>>48575080Let Sibella go first, ease her into it.
Say, when we introduce Belial, think we should try and get her to be friends with The Cat?Belial did save them, after all, and seems to think they're cool... and, truth be told, Belial could also really use some more friends.
>>48575080Before we knew what we were getting into with this Master situation we came across one of his underlings. Once he was laid to rest we found an efigy in which a demon was gestating. I decided to let Abdiel put this demon inside me to get more information from her once she hatched. Well, she has. A fragment of Belial is my "head mate" now. Don't worry, we've come to an understanding, she is helping us against the master. as for Sybella, well... [Let her continue]
>>48574850hey crunch, do you have that sibella pic you drew?
>>48575183This isn't bad, per say. But I think it will be better to go with Sibella and slowly explain the story behind all 3 demons. They are all a little different, after all.
>>48575014 She's going to try. She wants to act more assertive and tough because she wants to join the cell, but she's likely to give and do what feels natural in bed and give control to Benny. She cries during sex because its too emotional for her...and she's actually crying a little with Benny just because of all the secret drama at the meeting It would take some leveling up of her self confidence for her to successfully take charge of an entire love making session. Something like going toe to toe with an alpha beast person or her loyal slave/maid/follower... >>48575183There are two secrets you could keep from Nayara depending on how you explain the demons and what not.The first secret is the efigy.DO WE TELL HER WE GOT BELIAL FROM THE EFFIGY? WE COULD LET HER THINK WE SUMMONED HER FROM GOOD OLD FASHION MAGICK?DO WE TELL HER SIBELLA HAS FOUND SEVERAL EFFIGYS HERSELF CONNECTED TO MISSING VAMPIRES AND THAT THE MASTER IS LIKELY USING VAMPIRES + EFFIGYS TO ALLOW HIM LOTS OF DEMON SUMMONING POWER?The second secret is how Sibella got her demons. We know she copy-pasted the demon "data" from the master's versions to make her own using her hypnosis. And we know that its very, very strange for a vampire to be able to do that.DO WE TELL NAYARA ANYTHING ABOUT SIBELLA'S WEIRDNESS OR LET IT BE IMPLIED THAT SHE JUST SUMMONED THEM HERSELF THROUGH GOOD OLD FASHION MAGICK?Whew! lots of secrets to consider to this secret! Fortunately this is the last of the big "secret" options.
>>48574850Benny mode is going to be great. I haven't decided yet, but would you like to play as Benny or as Anon giving Benny date advice through Belial's psychic connection?Also Any progress on White Fell vs Winnie pics?
>>48575344Wouldn't telling be a good thing?Since, well, we kinda really haven't taken up magick or anything like that?Plus the second part would further point out how both House Dracula and the Catholic Church have joint cause here.
>>48575344>Talk about Sibella and the Master's connection between demons and vampiresShe needs to know about thatGiving up one secret about Sibella should soothe any potential distrust about Sibella's secret trip
>>48575344No secrets, but let Sibella explain her thing herself
>>48575235this the one?
>>48575344So after that tournament Benny is totally getting laid?
>>48575561I think it was a pov thing...But this one is nice too!
>>48575344tell her about the demons we got from effigies and allude that Sibella found similar things herself.If Sibella deosn't inform Nayara of the demon copy pasta, talk to her in private later then we decide to tell Nayara about it or not
>>48575394I haven't forgotten, I'm currently doing the diner scene from a few sessions ago by the way, do you have that scene in the google drive? I want to write that dialogue as close to canon as possible
>>48575600I am so looking forward to the diner scene
>>48575344In order>we tell her we got Belial from the effigy>We tell her about Sibella finding effigies herself and the combined hypothosis regarding the Master.Its litterally the major lead we have and its going to be critical to explain what we know. Especially since we are using that to explain why we haven't learned a lot about Sibella yet.As for the other secrets. I believe we should speak about it. Maybe guide it in a way that makes it so Sibella explains things too.
>>48575600Its on sup/tg/ look for Sibella and you'll find it
>>48575803THAT'S the one.Thank you very much man.
>>48573334>"Not for your sake buster!" Abby sticks her tongue out, notices that she's in a room where most people can see her, and flaps to your side, blushing all the while.Totally adorable.
>>48575417>>48575439>>48575662>Tell secerts>>48575494>No secrets>>48575592>Spill effigies, don't spill copy pasta>>48575600All Day 2 stuff is on sup tg>>48575568Oh, you have no idea...>Tell secrets"I'll go first." You say to Sibella, and then to Nayara: "We've found a statue a while back. The vegetable vampire, it should be on file...""Yeah I know about that. So this statue...""Right there in case you want to take a look at it." You point to it on a shelf between the behemoth schematics and a prototype anti-possession hat you made for an acquaintance of yours.The marble statue of a gardener at peace with his plants is still just as mysterious as the day you found it."Well...we found an unformed demon inside it and we decided to put it inside me to have it grow and develop..." You quickly pull the band-aid off."Memetic demon code..." Nayara strokes her chin. "That's...whew. That's some high level stuff right there isn't it? You made the right call sticking it inside yourself though.""You really think so?" You're rather surprised she found something you did that she approves of."Ah, don't think I hate all your calls Anon. Just the stupid ones." She winks. "It would be safer inside of you and with your angel halo and connection to Abdiel you would be the one most fit to take it on. Good job Anon.""Why thank you Nayara.""So we're working with a demon now? Hardly common, but your entire cell isn't exactly common. And there's been a precedent for Exorcists to use demons. I can see why you wanted kitten out of the warehouse before bringing it up though.""Char is...yeah. But we can talk about it later.""So you're pulling double duty. Got a cute little angel in your head and a big burly demon. You're an SI and an exorcist.""I have also been told I'm a good cook and have an impressive dress sense.""Well lets get the demon our here. I'd like to meet him.""Yeah."-cont
>>48576205>big burly demonOh this is going to be fun.
>>48576205>So you're pulling double dutyYou could say so
>>48576266I bet QG had a lot of fun writing this post.
>>48576205Oh boy...well, I hope they aren't too rude. Or that her angel doesn't freak out too much...
Woah, woah, woah. She is an SI, right? Wherestheangel, bby?
>>48576450Oh I suspect the angel is somewhere. She's got a lot of power after all. Stands to reason that her angel can do some things that Abby can't...YET.
>>48576205"Is it nice? Has it been able to tell us anything about the Master?""Nothing about the Master. Belial just has a vague sense of having previously existed. Its like trying to remember your birth. But she has been useful.""Ohhhhhh this is one of those girl demons with the big tits and impossible waistline right? Lucky man aren't you?""I uh...wouldn't say so. But she's useful, if a bit rude. Well okay, a lot rude. I'm talking like the CAT level.""Hey!" The CAT whines. "I'm nothing like a dead bird!"REVEAL THAT LJN IS BEING INTERROGATED INSIDE YOUR HEAD BY BELIAL AS YOU SPEAK?>>48576450DO WE ASK HER TO REVEAL THE ANGEL?
>>48576616Sure sure. Best they know in case things go wrong.
>>48576616>I'll show you mine if you show me yours.>Oh also I let her keep a prisoner without bail. But he IS evil.
>>48576616>REVEAL THAT LJN IS BEING INTERROGATED INSIDE YOUR HEAD BY BELIAL AS YOU SPEAK?Uh, not sure I wanna reveal that...
>>48576616I think we can at least reveal that she's digging around for info about last nights attack. It has a connection with the master, after all, right?I am fine with no reveal of the angel. I expect the angel to reveal itself in the span of seconds when we show her Belial.
>inb4 reckless SI with Samuel Guardian"Where's the bomb heretic?!"
>>48576774Samael.Autocorrect is a killer.
>>48576774It isn't Samael, name was said last thread I believe. Or at least in POV. Give me a moment.
>>48576823Hahaiah is the angels name. Unless Nayara is wrong, which I kinda doubt.
>>48576871Didn't see it.And I didn't say now at any rate.Ah well. Let's see how this goes.
>>48575812>>48576205where do I find this sup/tg/ ? this is the first I've heard of it?>>48576616>Reveal the Angelyeah, we were talking about how abby needs more friends!
>>48576913Angel of shelter and refuge if the internet searches are to be believed. Wonder what they'll be like with that type of title. Maybe very chill. Like a St.Babs in angel form.
>>48576616R E V E A L
>>48577023it looks like one of those red british buses, i bet
>>48576720>>48576710>>48576696>>48576695"You know LJN? She's stuck the sore user in my head. She's interrogating him-not that she's hurting him, I've seen to that. But she's slowly shifting through his memories to see if she can find anything.""So the pixel terror lives? And he's inside your head? Got an angel, demon, and now a vampire all inside you...."And a vampire in your heart, you think."It's got to be getting crowded in there right?""That implies there's not a lot of air in that head of his." Sibella says. "He's got plenty of space.""So uh, before I bring her...them...Belial out, I got to ask Nayara. Where's your angel?""Oh, you want to see him?" Nayara offers. "You sure? He's sort of a bore. Veryyyy by the book. It's why he's not here. He's busy patrolling around the warehouse and neighborhood looking for signs of evil wizards. He's very protective like that, its like he's my boyfriend.""I'd like to meet him." You reply. "How about you Abby?""Well, I see no reason not to..." Abby's not the most social among her own kind. The way she crosses her feet tells you she's as worried talking to him as with the demons. "We'll have to see each other eventually right?""Okay, I'll call Hahaiel back in." She says cutting herself another slice of pizza.For a slim cat woman she sure has an appetite."It's a good thing Benny isn't here right now." Costilla says. "I'd hate to hear him make some sort of stupid joke about Hahaiel."Second pass. Nayara eats her pizza."So...uh, where is he?""He's coming. I said he was making the rounds remember, around the neighborhood? He should be here any-"A thunderclap cuts off her off.-cont
>>48577267Wait shit very by the books?Doesn't this look very badthen?
>>48577314Maybe. But, we're going to be seeing him now, regardless. Could also be by the book just because of his personality. That's all. We'll see.
>>48577348Well yeah but if we knew he was bythe books we probably wouldn't've gotten him in the first place... well, what's done is done.
>>48577399On the other hand, I trust that Nayara knows how to deal with him. Just a hunch based on her reputable name/power level.
>>48577442Fair point yeah.Could be a way to prove that she's pretty ok.
>>48577267In a cloud of silvery smoke an enormous armored figure appears above the table. His mailed hands hold the handle of a flaming sword that makes Abby's look like a toothpick. A white cape with the pillars Jachin and Boaz in gold fall over his rounded pauldrons."I have arrived." He announces in a voice vibrating with strength.Red balls of light peer out from the cross shaped opening in his square helmet and focus on you...SAY/DO?
>>48577559Ask Abby why she never introduced you to her cooler older brother
>>48577559So, uh, is Nayara doing anything?>>48577623Cool, not cooler.
>>48577637Just snacking on some pizza.
>>48577559>Resist urge to ask if that is how he always enters a room. Or ask if he does birthday parties.
>>48577559>"I have arrived."I too am happy Benster is not around, this angel is a walking joke/innuendo factory
>>48577681Benny wouldn't be able to hear this guy
>>48577559>Super green approach, just to mess with him."Hi! I'm anon, resident SI, apparent exorcist and first time team leader!""This is my guardian angel Abidel."> Then serious up."So, find anything of note?"
>>48577664>>48577623>>48577637"...Hi." You wave awkwardly. "So uh, Abby how come you've never introduced me to your cool older bro?"His eyes travel up to Abdiel.And he kneels before her, offering up his sword."General Abdiel, it is a honor to fight under your command. I shall do all in my power to be useful to you, great general.""Uh...h-hi there Hahahiel..." She turns her head toward you. "Anon...help!" She mouths.>>48577709Which would kind of be funny, him just looking around at everyone staring up in awe.
>>48577808Goodness me, Abby's got a FANBOY!Sweet.
>>48577808...So can we ship it?
>>48577828>Do not help her at all. In fact, gesture for her to do her "great general" thing. To our great amusement.
>>48577856He's a possibility. Focalor is another.
>>48577808I've lost track of whether we still have/use style points butthis might be a good time to use some style points.
>>48578031Don't think we're gonna spend them here
>>48577879Gonna go with Focalor as a brother while this guy is a love interest.That seems better.
>>48577872I'm ok with this
>>48577808"Abby prefers to be a little bit more modest about these things. I am sure she appreciates the sentiment though. I wanted to meet you today Hahahiel, because Nayara and I are going to be working together. Its a pleasure to meet you.
>>48578040Try to remember the last time Abby asked us for help. PROTIP: She never asks us for help.
>>48578129This is just some casual stuff man we don't need to roll for everything.
Huh we've reached bump limit.Must've missed that...
>>48577872You give Abby a cheeky salute. "Carry on general."She scowls at you before turning to the kneeling angel of fortitude and comfort.>>48578031We can spend them if you want, it depends on what we want to do."You can uh...get up now if you want...""As you wish gracious one." He says rising. "There's so much I wish to talk to you about. When I learned that you willingly gave up so much of your power to descend to Earth and bond to a mortal, it was an inspiration for me to do the same.""Y-yeah." She touches the back back of her neck. "I'm glad I inspired someone. I thought a lot of people were mad I made that decision though.""They are fools. Your sacrifice for the sake of furthering our brotherhood with humanity was noble. You are the ideal soldier of god and I am proud to follow in your footsteps.""Y-You know I'm not at all like...I mean I'm not perfect Hahaiel. I just made a choice. Really that's all I did...""And you are modest. As modest as you are radiant General.">>48578090You decide she's suffered enough and step in."Hahahiel, I'm Anon. I asked Nayara to call you back from your rounds to meet you. Nice sword, a buddy of mine would kill to have a sword that big."He looks at you, then back to Abdiel, then back to you."You are bonded to him?""Yeah. I share my halo with him."He turns to Costilla. "I thought maybe you sir...""No. I taught him though. But I only have a residual echo of a halo within me now."Hahaiel stares at you."You don't look like much..." He says.SAY/DO?
>>48578269We shall go on to the end.
>>48578302>"I'm full of surprises.">Summon Belial.
>>48578302Aww that's adorable he's jealous... will probably be happy that we're dating Sibella, so we get a natural ally there!
>>48578302"I agree. But sometimes people can surprise you.""At any rate since we'll be working together for the time being I wanted to meet you."
>>48578302"I've been told that a few times here and there."
>>48578302Anyway, be privately relieved that it seems we're going to have at least one in that partnership enthusiastic about us dating Sibella, then smile and say"Well, I'm full of surprises" and then Belial makes her entrance.
>>48578302Laughing boy here takes himself super seriously I see..."If you want to spar some time I'd appreciate that. You seem like the sort that only really opens up through conflict.I'd use the saints of course, but I wouldn't ask Abidel to raise so much as a her voice against another if she doesn't want to. You'll have to get in line behind the cat-nun though. And I'd rather focus on logistics and information like we were for a bit longer."
>>48578637He's just thinking his crush is with someone else, no need to go talking about fights right now.Let's just set up the intro to Belial before hopefully moving on to talking about how we're dating Sibella (which should get him to ease off)
>>48578689It's hardly a fight.It's just a straight up offer to let him work through his aggression, put a pin in it and focus on more important things for the moment.
>>48578637>>48578740No need to set this fight up. Besides, we're likely fighting him later today in the sparing meeting. So no need to antagonize.As an aside. Who thinks Belial is giggling like a pair of madwomen at the dramatic setup we're giving her? She's an artist, after all.
>>48578902oh, she's going to be thrilled as Hell, no doubt
>>48578902Tiny Belial is probably giggling.Big Belial probably tries to look more classy though.
>>48578902Hope she appreciates the effort.At any rate I don't see it as antagonizing, just recognizing his displeasure, making an offer and secretly using him as practice for that duel.
"Eh, I've been told that here and there.But I've also been told I'm fool of surprises-you uh, know about Belial right? Nayara's informed you about through the halo telepathy?" You go to make sure he doesn't try to bisect her. Or would it be quadsect?"Yes. I take it she shall appear now?""She shall indeed." Two voices say at once.Lighting and thunder. Shadow and Light. Smoke and Form. A cloudbank fills the warehouse."Impressive." Hahaiel says."Oh please don't get carried away..." Abdiel groans."I am here." A woman made of wispy smoke appears."What's up sycophants?" A woman made of fire appears below her, smoke wafting up from her head to the other's feet. "See this? This is how you make an entrance Lancelot!""If you be obedient to our will we shall have no problems Queen of Demons.""We obey not your will but our own. Your group's desires simply coincide with our own.""Yeah! Don't get to thinking we're like you're slave or something big guy!""Hey guys! It's me! The CAT!" The CAT yells happily. "I'm in the suit but it's me!""Uh yeah." BF holds out the panel to the two elementals. "This is her. ""Proud predator! Believe yourself always to be an ally to us!""Good to see you again! Glad to see Anon's not just hanging out with angels and fake cats.""She seems very...free." Hahaiel says to you."She's willful but its not something to make a big deal out of." Abdiel says. "I promise you we have her under control.""I don't doubt your judgement General." He says giving you a doubting look. "I am only concerned. Demons have long manipulated unwary mortals...""So I'm Nayara, and this is my angel buddy Hahaiel, and you are...Belial 1 and Belial 2? How's that work.""We are Belial." They say in unison."We are fused symmetries, like nothing you can understand.""Don't think too hard about it kitty Christina, you'll just hurt your head!""Well its good to meet you two as well. I hope we can all work together to defeat the Master."-cont
>>48579237>"Hey guys! It's me! The CAT!" The CAT yells happily. "I'm in the suit but it's me!"Daww, Belial's got a friend.And so does The Cat!...Wonder if Belial would like to join in on game night.
>>48579237"General. I do not liked how this demon acts so familiar and rude in your presence. Should we not teach her a lesson?" He says eyeing her warily."You do overestimate yourself sir angel.""You think you can take ME? Ha! Even limited by an idiot's brainpower you are NOTHING!"He begins to raise his sword. Its fire tugs and billows against his pull. Its fire is not like what Abdiel uses for her sword. It is far less graceful and far more powerful."Hey hey hey woah..." Abdiel flies between the angel and demon. 'Let's not do anything foolish.""General, this demon speaks out of turn! Please, I ask that you grant me permission to teach her a lesson!""General? Oh, is someone nostalgic for the days when Abdiel was important in heaven?""AHAHAHAHAHA "General" he says! AHAHAHAHAH!""She is the only reason I have not battered you demon Queen..." His mailed hands tighten around his blazing blade.You look at Nayara and she simply looks back at you with patient eyes. She wants to see what you're going to do about this situation before seeing if she needs to step in.LET THE SITUATION PLAY OUT AS IT IS GOING?TELL ABBY TO LET THEM FIGHT?TELL EVERYONE TO COOL IT?
>>48579363>TELL EVERYONE TO COOL IT?Everyone gets to shut up, like, right now.Free, mandatory shut up for everyone not a human mortal Christian man named Anon.There will be no small-scale re-enactments of the War in Heaven.
>>48579363I'm a little torn. I think preventing a fight should be our priority, but it would be nice to let the situation play out if Abby is the one to take charge and demand Hahaiah back down, in which case she could earn some respect from Belial. Do you guys think Abby had that in her?
>>48579363>TELL EVERYONE TO COOL IT?Yeaaaaah going to have to ask you guys not to fight this one out. This is a meeting, not a war. And as it happens, I think we have some common enemies that are worth our time. So if all of you would stop now. Please and thank you.
>>48579363>Man, Hahaiel, we just went over this.>They're at least allies for the time being>You're acting rashly to minimal goading>You're better than this, just breathe.Patience and some level of forgiveness are virtues man.
To tryr and save angel guy's pride (because whoa boy no he's not gonna manage to beat Belial, she'd mop the floor with him)>>48579363Go with asking everyone to cool it - we all have a common purpose of beating up the Master.
Anon might have to start dressing down agents of Heaven and Hell alike.
>>48579300>Belial joins in>Hahaiel is convinced she's going todosomething evil to cheat so joins in to stop her>ends up with angel and demon playing mario party and cursing each other out
>>48579476Tell you what, I am willing to see if Abby can do it. Maybe in tandem with us. While still going for what I wrote here >>48579476
>>48579615>"I swear Belial, don't do it, don't you do it">Tag team Star theft>Warehouse explodes
>>48579476She was a General in the War in Heaven.I think she does, she just won't like it.Abdiel now is very much an agent of peace and love, as much as her bond with an SI like Anon will let her be.
Page 9 already...I think now is a good time to stop.Next time we tell angel and demon alike to chill, bring out Fo and Bee, discuss who should go on the new team, and (maybe) share that we are now an official item with Sibella.Goodnight all! Topics to discuss while the thread dies:Nayara is going to be adamant that the team's growth is going out of hand. She's willing to accept either Winnie or Char on the team, not both.In other words, they're going to have to fight each other to get a seat.SPOILERS There's going to be a boss encounter at the end of Benny and Char's date in the Bluestone Casino. 2 Demons, Moloch and his bodyguard waifu Ariel. The team will be busy surviving a casino transformed by Moloch's powers while you engage him in...poker. As in I got a deck of cards right here poker. Abby will be fighting Ariel one on one, and there's a lot of bad blood between them. Even more than between Abby and Belial. The poker game gives buffs and debufss to both fighters depending on how you do. So brush up on your poker! >>48579615I kind of want the end of Day 2 to be a video game party with left over pizza. How do you guys feel about that?>>48579721>Belial lands on Boo space>I swear to YHWH Belial don't steal my stars.>Come on The CAT has like 7! Take one of hers!>Don't you do it! Don't you do it!>She does it
>>48579721>"Well, I think we've all learned something here today">"What?">"That your angel partner needs anger management classes. LOADS of anger management classes"
>>48579777Moloch was the last one of the trinity, right?
>>48579801Yes. Once we have them all its only a matter of figuring out how they work together...
>>48579777Can Belial help us cheat at poker?
>>48579777Thanks for the thread, looking forward to what you have planned.
>>48579777That would be amazing, a game night party with everyone joining in.
>>48579814 Yes she can
>>48579777Wooh! My angel makes a comeback!Gonna silently root for Ariel, even as we push for victory.
>>48579811Well, we do have 2 on our side compared to 1 on the enemy side.So I assume we're ahead on whatever is going on.
>>48579777So we need to figure out how to play poker... anyone know how that is played and will you be around to help us out?
>>48579777Mm.I hope Char would win.Perhaps we could help her train?
>>48579777>>Belial lands on Boo space>>I swear to YHWH Belial don't steal my stars.>>Come on The CAT has like 7! Take one of hers!>>Don't you do it! Don't you do it!>>She does it>And she makes sure to laugh loudly as it happens.
>>48579777>SpoilerI was built for this day...there is a part of me that wants to see it go all crazy with various different types. But I know we're going hold'em.Good thread QG and I am happy you were able to extend it.I look forward toand dread the consequences coming from our actions in Mechagirl Pitfighter. That weapon better be good, and we better hope that our dads will forgive us... I look forward to some of the nice things that COULD happen. All I know is that its likely going to be time for another art trance...
>>48579836Belial is best head demon
So uh is this gonna be saved on suptg?
>>48579943QG will likely have it up sooner rather than later. Give or take a day or two.
>>48579996Just that the last few have been saved here, is all.
Well I saved it. Hope that's ok
>>48579777I think that it would be in the best interest of us all if Char stayed on the team as opposed to Winnie. Winnie already has a lot going on, and can't guarantee 100% focus and dedication to our mission-or, if she can, then it would be to the detriment of her other duties.A fight between the two, regardless of how good-natured or professional, might still cause some hostility or hurt feelings, especially considering that a position to help their friends in need is what is at stake. Really, however the fight would go Winnie would probably kick ass, just by the way, she has more fighting experience and she's been confirmed by Quest Guy to be capable of seeing angels, which somehow ties into how she wouldn't have gone to Grimwood if she wasn't a "very special werewolf", and I'd venture a guess that that has something to do with spirits and stuff like that, in which case Char would really be in trouble as she seems to really rely on her imaginary friends, I think it's best to just get Winnie to drop it and avoid a fight altogether. Just explain to Winnie that both her and Char are perfectly capable of helping, but our boss is demanding a smaller team, and between the two of them Char is the one who doesn't have the extra responsibilities of a pack to lead or a wendigo to heterosexually nude mud wrestle with. I'm sure she'll understand.
>>48579913>START WITH HOLD 'EMmidfight, losing belial cashes in half his chips and declares FIVE CARD STUD! JOKER'S WILD! "ugh, grandpa poker...? We'll never get anything done...">SUDDENLY COSTILLO OUT OF NOWHERE"Move over boy, I grew up playing this game."
>>48580202I happen to agree, and I'm sure Sibella will too. But, I figure the fight is bound to happen regardless.
>>48580202seems reasonable.Honestly I'd be against bringing Winnie in if only so THE MASTER might not think to use Sibella's friends as leverage against her.
