>You are Maple Son-Mahogany, one of two young Tuffle twins thrown at Earth starting in early Dragon Ball by your "father," Dr. Raichi>"Canon" had already taken a sharp turn from the "norm" when you began, and through your actions, choices, and dialogue, took even further turns from the "norm," and will probably continue to do so>Stats and dice mechanics are used, and can be explained again as needed>Let's all try to have some fun, ok?And a pastebin: http://pastebin.com/WKtLT1TkLast time, on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest Z! You started training Gohan and Peppa, and said your goodbyes to Trunks and Bra. With the kids making quick progress, you and your friends eventually get ready to summon Shenron to bring back those who lost their lives since Cooler's arrival on Brench. But before you do, Vegeta and Nappa appear before you, wanting to know more about the Dragon Balls...
>>48757304https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aO_Lpb2f6d4Vegeta's smug, irritating grin seems to be directed at you specifically. "So. These 'Dragon Balls' can grant any wish, correct?""Nope." Lapis tells him flatly, relaxing himself. "Not quite ANY wish."The grin fades as Vegeta looks to him. "Tch. Okay, then what CAN they grant?"He shrugs. "Lots of stuff. But if you, say, asked the Eternal Dragon to make your pal's head explode, I don't think he'd be capable of doing that. Though if you wanted to finally add a few centimeters to your height and stop compensating with that hair, well, worth a shot."Vegeta squints at Lapis. "Don't try to play smart with me, Earthling. You're clearly not very good at it."You see Lazuli crack a little smile. "Bro, you gonna take that?""...I'm going to refrain from talking with the two of you for the rest of my time on this miserable little planet." The Saiyan prince crosses his arms and focuses back on you. "Tuffle, Freeza intended to use these things to gain Immortality. Are they capable of granting that wish, or was he deluded by someone into believing that the case?">A. Yep>B. Nah>C. Vegeta, you realize Immortality would be an AWFUL wish, right?>D. Something else?
>>48757323>C. Vegeta, you realize Immortality would be an AWFUL wish, right?>D. Talk about the afterlife.
>>48757366Actually add a "yeah" to that so we aren't accused of being evasive, but don't lead off with it.
>>48757323>A. Yep>C. Vegeta, you realize Immortality would be an AWFUL wish, right?
>>48757323>D. Something else?"If you wanna live for a long time but not lose the challenge of being a Saiyan, you can face the Kaiju for a chance at the fountain of youth."That way he feels like he's earned it and he'll be in his prime a lot longer then Goku at least.
>>48757323>C. Vegeta, you realize Immortality would be an AWFUL wish, right?By wishing himself immortal, he's essentially admitting that he's too afraid of the possibility of losing to ever engage in a fair fight. That's not very princely, especially not for a prince of all Sayians. Goku gets really excited about a fight when it becomes apparent that he'll have to work really hard to squeeze out a narrow victory. It sounds more like an awfully Frieza-like thing to do. It's one thing to seek every possible advantage over an opponent, but that'd be like going into a drinking contest and declaring a rule that you can substitute water for alcohol anytime you want. Sure, you'll probably win every drinking contest from there on, but you've essentially rigged the game from the start.
>>48757663>immortality is for cowardsOh he'll love that.
>>48757304Also supporting this:>>48757620
>>48757323>D. Immortality is for nerds, you're just gonna reincarnate anyway.
Can we go to another planet this thread? I need to explore some dark dank planet caves.
>>48757323You give Vegeta a blank look and ask him, "Vegeta, you DO realize that Immortality would be just about the worst wish you could ask for, right?"Vegeta gains a slight but noticeable bit of irritation. "Answer the-"You sigh. "Of course they could. And a better use of your time would be wishing for the Earth's most comfortable pair of underwear."Peppa and Gohan snicker at that. Goku ruffles his kids hair. "Eh, betcha you'd be able to make that too, Maple. Actually... you and Piccolo did that once, didn't you? When we looked for Konpei."You laugh, but keep your focus and explain. "Okay, for starters, Immortality would block you off from the Afterlife. Which, honestly, sounds like a pretty nice place. I got a peek not too long ago, recall. Secondly, you'd probably be stuck in a state where you can't pull off that good ol' 'stronger every time you get close to death' trick. If your body can never die, why would it need something like that? And third, I am about 95% certain that if you made that wish, Towa and her cohorts would be on you like a mold on cheese."The first one doesn't seem to worry him, though the second comment does give him reason for concern. The third draws his curiosity. "What makes you assume that, and what's more, what makes you assume this Towa person could ever hope to stop Nappa and I while we're Immortal?""I also doubt that the second part is valid, Tuffle." Nappa comments. "That is merely an accelerated version of natural bodily self-maintenance and repair. Even if we can't die, we would still experience pain and damage. Or at the very least, we could word the wish to make sure we keep that ability in check. But nice try."(cont.)
>>48758026Just about everyone but Vegeta seem surprised by Nappa's comment. You smile and nod. "Well, good thinking on that part. But Towa definitely could take you both and perform gods know what kind of awful experiments on you two. An eternity of near-death, prevented from ever getting stronger. Doesn't sound all that appealing, does it?" Vegeta and Nappa don't quite have a response for that one. "Lastly... well, think about it this way. Immortality is for cowards."Vegeta's eyes seem like daggers as he lowers his arms, fists clenched. "What did you just say?"You give him a shrug. "Your hearing isn't that bad, is it Vegeta? Immortality is for cowards. Cowards like Freeza are ones that want to live forever and rule the universe with an iron fist. But Immortality isn't a Saiyan way of doing things now, is it? No possible challenge could ever come to you. You'd always get back up and try again, unable to suffer defeat, unable to experience any thrill of battle. Fight forever? It would be an eternity of boredom. It'd be like going for a drinking contest and being able to switch for water at any given moment.""...you have an alternative." he comments, not even making it sound like a question. He knows you do."If you really do want to live for a long time, maybe give the Kaiju a call and try your hand at the Fountain of Youth. I bet Godzilla would love the challenge, and you'd be earning something instead of just wishing for a 'win button' of sorts."Nappa gives an exasperated groan. "More Earth secrets. Greeeaaaaat."Lazuli meanwhile looks at you with concern, nudging you to read her mind. You do so, and... 'Maple, are you crazy? What if he decides to take it all for himself?''He'll have to get through Godzilla first.'Vegeta does seem to consider that, but doesn't change his piercing glare. His smirk reappears. "...perhaps I've found a better wish, then."(cont.)
>>48758047Not sure you like this either...>A. Which is?>B. Can it wait like, a year, please? We have our own wish to make first, and there's not a lot of time to do so>C. Something else?
>>48758069>A. Which is?
>>48758069>A. Which is?>B. Can it wait like, a year, please? We have our own wish to make first, and there's not a lot of time to do so.The balls can also revive people, but it has to be within a year, and it takes too long for the balls to recharge that if we don't do it now all those people will stay dead.
>>48758069"Okay, what IS this wish of yours? And can it wait until next time? Like, a year, please? The Dragon Balls have a limit to how long they can go before reviving someone completely."Vegeta chuckles. "Perhaps. And this is my wish: Knowledge."Everyone seems to give a combined "Huh?" at that, save Peppa, who backs up to you slightly and glares at the Saiyan Prince with suspicion."It's quite simple, really. I wish to know if this..." Vegeta starts to power up, the ground trembling beneath him. His smirk somehow becomes even cockier as he transforms into a Super Saiyan. "...is the limit to the power of Legend. Or if there is something beyond it. Something greater. The true power of The Super Saiyan."Goku seems to look at him curiously. "That's... I guess that makes sense.""Though I would rather find out sooner rather than later..." Vegeta comments, gaining an angry glare from Lazuli.>A. Give it a year, and maybe you can find out>B. Well, willing to wager our match's victory on finding out?>C. Something else?
>>48758069>A. Which is?>B. Can it wait like, a year, please? We have our own wish to make first, and there's not a lot of time to do soC. Beat me at the tournament and I won't even contest it.
>>48758580>A. Give it a year, and maybe you can find out>C. Something else?Maple is pretty well-connected in the Afterlife/Otherworld. Maybe he won't even need such a wish if we contact the right people.Yazai is one of those people for sure. While Vegeta is a long way from being able to wield or even harness such power, there should be some other figures in the afterlife who know about such things.
>>48758580>A. Give it a year, and maybe you can find out>B. Well, willing to wager our match's victory on finding out?Wager it for the next wish, no delaying this one.
>>48758689Alternatively, we could consult Baba. Visions of possible futures is a thing after all, I imagine our hights of power would come into focus.
ShitI just noticed that the link to previous thread didn't copy over.Sorry! Previous thread here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/48639509/Still not sure if LL's gotten my emails.
>>48758580"If you can wait a year for the wish, then fine. Or would you rather wager it on our match?" you ask with a slight smirk."A guarantee either way." Vegeta replies smugly."Or maybe you could track down Baba, check with the past, maybe look into the future. I'm sure someone would know something about improving the strength of a Super Saiyan in the Afterlife. Like Yazai-"Vegeta grunts dismissively. "Yazai. The Saiyan traitor. Tuffle, you know just the words to say to piss me off, you know that? Oh my father told me plenty about him. How he thought he was a Super Saiyan. How he was proven wrong. I'd rather die myself than speak with that failure of a Saiyan.""He wasn't a failure, Vegeta." Goku comments.He laughs. "Believe what you want to, Kakarot. But the proof stands before you.""Is it a deal, then?" you ask Vegeta.He powers down. "As I said. A guarantee that I'll achieve what I want. You have your deal, Tuffle.""Good. The sooner we're off this planet for good, the better." Nappa grunts, the two of them flying off.You notice Peppa stick her tongue out at Vegeta as he leaves.>A. Sweetie, be nice>B. So, Lapis, how long does Krillin have left?>C. Something else?
>>48759345>A. Sweetie, be nice>B. So, Lapis, how long does Krillin have left?
>>48759345>B. So, Lapis, how long does Krillin have left?
>>48759345>C. Welp, time to train my aaaaaaa butt off. Not letting him get away with that.
>>48759345>>A. Sweetie, be nice>>B. So, Lapis, how long does Krillin have left?
>>48759345"Sweetie, be nice." you tell your daughter, picking her up."But he's still mean." she grumbles, looking at Vegeta and Nappa while they fly off."I know, but that doesn't mean we have to be like him in response." you say with a pat of her hair.The girl's tail curls around your arm. "Mnh.""I know, Peppa. And believe me, mama's gonna train her a- butt off." Hoo boy are you going to need it... "So Lapis, how long does Krillin have left?"He looks to a clock. "Ten seconds. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. Five-""And with four seconds to spare, the Krillmaster makes the save!" Krillin shouts as he teleports in. "Thaaaat'll be 500 Zenni, Lapis.""Damn." he says with a snap of his fingers, digging some change out of his pocket.(cont.)
>>48759953https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym7yjhulJf8And so, Shenron is called once more. Konkichi stares at the looming Eternal Dragon in awe, while Lazuli humbly makes her wish. "Sheron, I ask of you, please, bring back all the good people who've lost their lives since Cooler's arrival on Planet Brench. All who've died because of..."Lapis places his hand on his sister's shoulder. "Lazuli, it's okay.""IT WILL TAKE BUT A MOMENT OF MY TIME." Shenron declares."Hoooh. And you guys have encountered him... how many times before?" the green fox man asks."Well, let's see..." Goku starts. "Eighter, Gurumez, Acer, Korin's Senzu place, and now, here...""Adding to that, King Piccolo's wish, and Chuu Lee's wish." you comment."THERE IS A COMPLICATION WITH THIS WISH." Shenron's voice booms. "TWO PLANETS HAVE BEEN DESTROYED AS A RESULT OF THE ACTIONS OF COOLER. BOTH INHABITED. I CANNOT RESTORE THE PLANETS AND REVIVE EVERYONE WHO DIED DUE TO THE SHEER NUMBER OF THEM."Lazuli's heart seems to sink. "...w-was one of those planets, Brench?""IT WAS NOT.""Well, you can take those who don't have any planets anymore and put them on Brench, can't you? Or... or maybe some other planet where they could survive." she pleads."I CAN PUT THEM ONLY PUT THEM ON EARTH FOR THE TIME BEING.""Shenron, how many people are we talking here?" Krillin asks."FOUR AND A HALF BILLION."Lazuli tugs at her hair. "That... that many?""CORRECT."This... is a bit of a tough one.>A. Krillin, Lapis, think you could find Namek and Kami? Maybe he has the upgrade Shenron needs>B. Namek's Dragon Balls could be used to restore the planets, couldn't they?>C. Well... Earth can handle this, right? We're on a bit of a time limit here...>D. Something else?
>>48759970>>A. Krillin, Lapis, think you could find Namek and Kami? Maybe he has the upgrade Shenron needs>>B. Namek's Dragon Balls could be used to restore the planets, couldn't they?We might need joint dragon summonings.
>>48759970>A. Krillin, Lapis, think you could find Namek and Kami? Maybe he has the upgrade Shenron needs>B. Namek's Dragon Balls could be used to restore the planets, couldn't they?
>>48759970>A. Krillin, Lapis, think you could find Namek and Kami? Maybe he has the upgrade Shenron needs>B. Namek's Dragon Balls could be used to restore the planets, couldn't they?I think C would be a hardship but maybe not impossible as a backup plan. We could call on our space political fri nds for help, perhaps.
>>48759970You think for a moment. "Krillin, Lapis, could you guys try and locate Kami on Namek? Maybe he has the upgrade Shenron needs.""Well, give us a bit." they say, trying to focus."If not, the Namekian Dragon Balls could probably restore the planets.""I REQUEST YOU HURRY THIS ALONG." Shenron asks."S-sorry! We'll make the wish as soon as we can." Lazuli promises.Eventually the two boys teleport away, having located Kami. Shenron grows increasingly impatient. "IF YOU WOULD RATHER WAIT AND WISH ANOTHER TIME, PLEASE SEND ME ON MY WAY.""Agh, we can't wait any longer than this..." Lazuli states. "Why didn't I figure this out sooner?""Hey, don't beat yourself up over this." Konkichi states.Finally, Lapis and Krillin return with Kami... looking rather unhappy. He wordlessly approaches the Dragon Balls, placing his hands forward. Energy seems to flow from him into the Dragon Balls, Shenron's eyes giving off a red glow as he finishes. "They can now grant two wishes. I ask that you bring me to the Lookout once you are done.">A. Kami, is something wrong?>B. Well Lazuli, go for it>C. Something else?
>>48760543>B. Well Lazuli, go for itWe can talk to Kami later.
>>48760543>B. Well Lazuli, go for it
>>48760543B. Then A.While she's wishing we can discuss important matters
>>48760543>B. Well Lazuli, go for itWhile she's wishing>A. Kami, is something wrong?So >>48760691
>>48760543"Guess that solves that, Lazuli! Go for it!" you tell her. Kami lets out an exhausted sigh. You approach him, your daughter in your arms still. "...something wrong, Kami?"You can tell from the look on his face that he doesn't want to answer, but after Lazuli makes her wishes, first to restore the planets, then to revive people. Kami looks to you all. "...I have learned many things about the Dragon Balls on Namek. And how I have made many mistakes."Goku takes a moment to jump up into the sky and catch the Four-Star Dragon Ball, heading back down to give it to Gohan... who looks at it for a moment, and hands it back to his dad. "It's yours, papa." Goku smiles at that, ruffling his son's hair.You smile as well, but turn back to Kami. "What do you mean?"Kami grips his staff. "I was correct to have them spread across the world. You see... there is an issue with how they are used. Tell me, what do you think happens when a wish is made on the Dragon Balls?">A. Well, it takes some kind of energy, right?>B. Not sure, but is there something bad that happens?>C. Something else?
>>48761169>B. Not sure, but is there something bad that happens?
>>48761169>A. Well, it takes some kind of energy, right?Can't make something out of nothing.
>>48761169>A. Well, it takes some kind of energy, right?
>>48761169>C. Shenron gets to stretch his arms?
>>48761169>C. He takes a break from fighting centipedes in the Earth's core?
>>48761623>The eastern Asian dragon can be fierce as well, but unlike its European counterpart, it is almost always helpful to human beings. The Asian dragon loves jewels, especially jade; it hate centipedes and anything made from iron. In China, the dragon is the highest-ranking animal in the cosmology; it was associated with the power and majesty of the Chinese emperor, and is still linked to fertility and prosperity.
>>48761169>C. Something else?"Well for every action there's an opposite and equal reaction right? So the energy Shenron uses must have some sort of drawback."
>>48761931Our tuffle is too damn smart to make that simple-minded analogy.
>>48761169>C. I thought Shenron just used your power to do something for someone else?
>>48761169"Well, you can't really make something out of nothing. Everything takes energy, even this," You conjure up a shirt that says "TACOS" on it. Peppa catches it and starts playing with it. "Magic is just a form of energy, and the Dragon Balls are plenty magical. So I'd assume they take some kind of energy to operate. I mean, it's not just Shenron stretching his arms or something after he's done fighting centipedes in the center of the Earth." Krillin, Lapis, Lazuli, and Konkichi stare at you for that comment. You smile cheekily. "But really, it's a law of nature. Opposite and equal reaction-" Then it starts to dawn on you. "...there's something wrong with how this energy is used, isn't there? A drawback?"Kami lowers his head. "The Dragon Balls draw upon some of the universe's creative, positive energy. Which leads to an equal buildup of destructive, negative energy, contained within the Dragon Balls themselves. Over time, the energy leaves the Dragon Balls and the universe's forces balance out... but only over the course of many, many years. A hundred or more, depending on the buildup. I had designed them to be able to hold a significant amount of this negative energy."That... that sounds bad. Goku tilts his head. "Couldn't you just wish away the bad energy then?""It would result in gaining an amount of negative energy equal to that needed to remove it." Kami states with a sigh. "And a slight increase from merely making a wish."Goku frowns. "Ah. Dang."(cont.)
>>48762055https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9IAfsTDZtY"What's more... this energy is corruptive. If too much is built up, it could alter Shenron in some way that results in him needing to expel that power. This has happened at least once." With a grim look, he gazes over you all. "...that resulted in the destruction of the Planet Eros. And eventually an entire galaxy.""A whole... galaxy?!" Lapis exclaims."Then... well, how long do we have before we have to face that?" Goku asks... with an oddly calm expression on his face."I do not know for certain. It could be next wish. It could be ten wishes away. But I ask this of you: please do not rely on the Dragon Balls. Use them only as an emergency measure. Give them time to recover, beyond there initial state of rest as stone. And... know that the day may come when they can no longer be used. The time may come when I must what I can to keep this error in my judgment from bringing further harm to the Earth." He hangs his head. "I am deeply sorry.">A. If it weren't for you, Kami, we all would've probably never met in the first place. We'll make that promise, but please don't blame yourself for this>B. Wait, does that mean the Namekian Dragon Balls have the same risk to them?>C. Is there anything Trip can do?>D. Something else?

>>48762095>D. Something else?"What if we figure out how to reverse the negative energy in the dragon balls without relying on wishes?"
>>48762095> If it weren't for you, Kami, we all would've probably never met in the first place. We'll make that promise, but please don't blame yourself for this>B. Wait, does that mean the Namekian Dragon Balls have the same risk to them?>C. Could we extract small portions of the negative energy? Instead of building up to an explosion and birthing an evil force, we end up with small things we can beat down. Sounds like great training, actually.
>>48762095>>48762145This. Even better, maybe we can find somewhere in the universe for this negative energy to "vent" as it were. If it was big enough to destroy a galaxy, maybe there's somewhere out there roughly Galaxy sized that has a whole bunch of nothing going on that the negative energy can go to.Of course, after promising not to use the balls again.
>>48762284If we learn to transmute raw negative energy into positive energy we could stifle a lot of Towa's plans.
>>48762306If that were possible the dragon balls wouldn't have a problem to begin with.
>>48762284>We vent the energy>It ends up at Beerus' place>WHIS, WHAT IS THAT SMELL? IS THAT THAT ROTTEN SHARK MEAT AGAIN?!>Beerus is now headed directly at us

>>48762095"If it weren't for you, Kami, we all would've probably never met in the first place. We'll make that promise, but please don't blame yourself for this."The aged Namekian smiles a soft, grandfatherly smile at you. "Always looking to the positive side of things.""If anything, let me apologize for what I've just done." Lazuli tells him."There is no need. But do take that to heart." Kami tells the young woman.Something clicks in your mind. "Wait... the Namekian Dragon Balls! Kami, are they at risk too?""A good observation." Kami notes. "They are, but not to the degree that the Earth's are. At least, not yet. Moori has already taken precautions."A relief, at least. Still... damn. "Well... what if there's something Trip could help you with, or maybe some way to vent a little bit of the energy at the time? Instead of one big explosion of it when it overloads.""Doing so would could create a creature with strength that surpasses even the former Demon King's." Kami states. "At minimum. It'd be comparable to the power of a Majin."...well, there goes the plan to try training with it. "Guess it was worth a shot.""We'd need to get plenty stronger before that happens." Goku comments. "But if we do, maybe we can try to prevent it. Though that's probably a ways off.""Yeah, we already have a lot to worry about." Krillin notes."That said, perhaps Miss Sanzo and I could work together to find some temporary solution. I shall investigate that possibility." Kami states, taking to the air. "I thank you all again. Spread the word to those who need to hear it."After Kami's message, things start to normalize a bit, with you...>A. Getting in some training yourself>B. Focusing on Gohan and Peppa's training more>C.

We're going to really need to fight Goku in SSJ if we wanna fight with Vegeta evenly.Liam willing the rolls won't fuck us over, what's our plan for when he goes gold?
>>48762822>>48762839I'd argue against the training as counting against our options, we can literally do anything and everything else while we keep up the energy.

>>48762760As time moves on, you make sure the kids get their training in, and though they do get some decent time in, they start to fall into a routine of it. You prompt them to attempt teaching each other and helping them improve themselves, though that just... kinda leads to them treating it more like a game than trying to learn something from it. Still, they do show improvement, Gohan starting to gain a drive more like his sister's as the girl tries to impress you and Goku.Your attempt to have them start gaining an education beyond their basic one from the Turtle School training sadly doesn't show the kind of results you'd like, even if they do show some motivation in it, Gohan even more than his sister. But, you hit upon an idea to get them trying harder; someone closer to their age to help them learn. And given how much the two of them like her, you figure Pantea is just about the perfect choice for this.And to your relief, it does end up working.The girl's own private lessons help Peppa and Gohan start to learn beyond basic math, writing, and reading. With the motivation, they do seem to learn much quicker than a normal Earthling, Gohan especially, though you're not sure how much of it is natural ability for him, and how much is him trying to impress Pantea.(cont.)
>>48764179Warning: spooky gooks
>>48764400With the kids' training and learning underway, you put the effort in to get back in the game, and develop some new skills. First, using some of the notes Piccolo added to the book of Magic, you develop a new Lightning Barrier skill of sorts that can catch an opponent off-guard and stun them if they try to get you with a melee attack... though the drawback is that it lacks longevity. It's at best capable of taking one or two blows before it wears off, but that might be just enough to get you the edge you need. Next is working with the skill Trunks and Bra showed you, a quick reactive technique that you can mix in with one of your normal Ki attacks. And lastly, you take the time to enhance the last few Melee combos you know with Lightning. Even if you might not be able to hit as hard, you can potentially do a lot of damage if you can keep an opponent stunned for long enough.Eventually, after you and Acer help Bulma and the rest of Capsule Corp. start repairs to the Gravity Chamber, with the new design upping the maximum to 300x Earth's Gravity, you're given a surprising visit... by Shao. "Ssssso. Uh. Maple. I've... got a very, very, VERY personal question to ask you." she starts with a nervous gulp, her cheeks reddening as she notices Gohan and Peppa marching with Pantea and Gato.>A. Telepathy personal, or private conversation personal?>B. Sure brobro and Bulma can't help too?>C. Something else?
>>48764414That's too spookyVeto
>>48764427>A. Telepathy personal, or private conversation personal?
>>48764427>A. Telepathy personal, or private conversation personal?>C. Something else?Acer and Bulma can watch the kids if you wanna go somewhere to talk.
>>48764427>>A. Telepathy personal, or private conversation personal?Lol I can't even remember who this is. So many side characters.
>>48764466Warning: that's not even the final form
>>48764427You raise an eyebrow. "Telepathy personal, or just private conversation personal?"She walks into Capsule Corp with her face reddening even further. It's like a bright, red tomato. "Private conversation. Just... please. Need to talk with someone about this, and you're the only person I know who's got experience with this."...you're not exactly sure just yet, but you're starting to get an idea on what she's talking about. "All right. Kids! You all behave, and stay close to Bulma or brobro for a bit!""Kaaaay!" Pantea's voice responds.Shao hurries you away from prying eyes and ears. Taking a seat in one of Capsule Corp's smaller rooms, she takes a deep breath. "Maple... when, uh, you had Peppa and Gohan, how... did that go, for you?" she asks, fidgeting.>A. Well, wasn't easy carrying twins, but I managed>B. Wasn't TOO difficult, really, at least most of the time>C. ...oh. OH. Ohhhh boy...>D. Something else?
>>48764805>B>C>DWas it Raditz?

>>48764886Vegeta got her drunk preggers.
>>48764886One of Tien's Crane School students.
>>48764925Think this is Chuu Lee's cousin, and Raditz may have a thing for Bulma's sister after a pained wail of Matchmaker Maple No in one thread
>>48764805>>B. Wasn't TOO difficult, really, at least most of the time>>C. ...oh. OH. Ohhhh boy...>>D. Something else?Does he know?
>>48764993I'm pretty sure she's Paopao's big sis.
>>48764805>D. Well, I delivered them during a full moon, so it was a bit taxing. Senzu Beans helped a bunch, though!
>>48765095That's not how it works.
>>48764805>>48765095do this plz
>>48764805>B. Wasn't TOO difficult, really, at least most of the time>C. ...oh. OH. Ohhhh boy...
>>48765095That doesn't make any sense.
>>48765168Then what happens while a female Saiyan is pregnant, huh, genius?
>>48765255Minus a shit and isn't canon.
>>48765321More Canon than your obvious fetish
>>48765219Nothing? Saiyans don't transform if they can't see the moon.
>>48765215What? We did give birth on a full moon, just look up the moon on October 9, 1995 (760 in this world).
>>48765430>October 9, 1995Waning moon. Full moon was on the 8th that year and month.
>>48765404We looked at the moon, the Blutz Waves transferred.
>>48764805You take a moment to recall it. "Well, considering I was carrying twins at the time, it wasn't TOO difficult, and Goku was very supportive-" You stop, your expression becoming blank as you slowly turn your head to the other girl. "Oh. OH. Ohhhhh boy..."Shao's head lowers. "...yeah."You know it wasn't Raditz. "W-was it... I... does he know yet?""N-no but..." Shao throws her hands into the air. "Agh, it was just supposed to be a little fun! Got back to Earth after spending what seemed forever gone from it, had a few drinks-" She notices your accusing glare. "...okay, a lot of drinks. Still, one thing led to another...""And now you're pregnant with Mr. Monkey Prince's kid." you sigh.She sits back down. "I... I mean, I do want to keep him..."You raise an eyebrow again. "How do you know it's a him?""Him, her, it doesn't matter, it's just... I need to know, if there's anything I should do to... you know... what does it take?">A. You're going to get hungry. A lot. A LOT. In fact, let me get a list started...>B. I think you should let Vegeta know>C. Are you really sure you want to go through with this?>D. Something else?

>>48765458>A. You're going to get hungry. A lot. A LOT. In fact, let me get a list started...
>>48765451Full moons can last more than one day. http://www.calendar-12.com/moon_calendar/1995/october
>>48765458>A. You're going to get hungry. A lot. A LOT. In fact, let me get a list started...>B. I think you should let Vegeta know.>B.5. I'll even come with you, in case he throws a temper tantrum and tries to do something stupid.

Great. Now the odds of success on convincing people to kill Vegeta just went from "extremely unlikely" to "impossible"
>>48765458>A. You're going to get hungry. A lot. A LOT. In fact, let me get a list started...>B. I think you should let Vegeta knowOn your own time.>D. Something else?...Can I be the kid's godmother? It'd really annoy Vegeta!
>>48765458>D. Okay, just whatever you do, do NOT look at a full moon, just like the baby absorbs the host's nutrients, it also absorbs their energy waves.
>>48765549Stop with your fucking head-canon, anon.
>>48765458>A. You're going to get hungry. A lot. A LOT. In fact, let me get a list started...>B. I think you should let Vegeta know"Don't expect to him to be a family man right off the bat or ever, but that man cares a lot about pride. I'd like to imagine that transfers to being about one's kids as well.">D. Something else?"Do you actually like him like that or are you two just fuckbuddies?"
>>48765564It's good advice for ladies pregnant with were-gorillas.
>>48765456Why would we look at the moon?Why do you assume we had them at night?
>>48765586It's idiotic nonsense.
>>48765531Call the mods
Oozaru training for young halflings will be important though.So teaching her the false moon technique would come in handy.
>>48765572We don't use the F-word in this quest, young lady.
>>48765655She'll be the size of a small moon when she see that.
>>48765675She'll be exactly the same size as otherwise.
>>48765458I don't suppose Shao has any kind of naming convention to follow? I guess we'll need a saiyan name. Might help make vegeta happy anyway. Any ideas?
>>48765685Are you calling her fat!?
>>48765710I'm calling you a retard.
>>48765723I'd agree to something in the same spirit
>>48765706You should know you homo
>>48765572I'll back this
I think it'd be fucking hilarious if Goku was being supportive during our labor while a giant ape.
>>48765775Yet you're on the traditional games board.
>>48765775No you just like dicks
>>48765794>>48765790>>48765759just ignore the asshole. report him or whatever and let him waste his time trying to offend us while he jacks off to his football shit.
>>48765781>regular training session in my monkey form>wife doubles over and starts crying>uh oh... oH OH AAH, AAH, AAH
>>48765817Yes your rainbow pyramid shows you to be a homo
>>48765827But it's funny.
>>48765698All Crane School students have a kind of Chinese flatbread (bing), or Chinese words for kinds of flatbread. Laobing (pan fried), Shaobing (baked), Keli bing (crepe), Bisa bing (pizza).
>>48765886He's really not, though. Nothing he's doing is really affecting the threads. I mean hell, we shitpost hard enough to make this guy look like a positive contributor half the time.
>>48765929He's been making half-hearted attempts at shitposting, but that's not really fucking up anything. Maybe sends the thread into autosage a dozen posts sooner, but this is /tg/, autosage lasts for hours.
>>48765850Huh, not sure what to do with that. If our ideas suck do you have something in mind.
>>48765458>D. Eh, I can see it, he has a nice ass. That attitude could use some adjustment though!
>>48765921Maybe, maybe.>>48765966Well, Vegeta could demand the kid be called "Vegeta Jr."Even if it's a girl.I'm half-joking.
>>48765991It'd work, Vegeta's a good name for a girl.
>>48765991I'd be down for whatever Vegeta's mom's name is or whatever you choose it too be.
>>48766022just so long as it isn't RingoI fap every night to this pic
>>48765991>Well, Vegeta could demand the kid be called "Vegeta Jr."The Saiyans seem like they'd get along fine with the Mandalorians.
>>48765991He should name one Kaguya, or it should at least be suggested to him.
>>48765991>Kid, I named you after the bravest man I ever knew.>ME!
>>48766142>>48765991Maybe Vegeta is more of a title than a real name.I mean, Vegeta's ancestors couldn't have been so conceited as to name all of their descendants after themselves, right?
>>48765991The MOST feminine of names
>>48766224Fuck off back to Anonkun buddy
>>48766224Huh.Thought you died.
>>48766224>Eail livesHoly shit I thought the Texan summer got you
>>48766224And the least interesting of waifus, to match the least interesting of quests.

>>48766307So why are you attention whoring in a better QM's quest?
>>48766306Fuck off, my car was 107 degrees, I sweat a cup of water getting the A/C on
>>48762095We just need to wish for a re-usable machine that can take evil out of the dragonballs and coalesce it into a fightable entity.Hell, we're gonna encounter Hatchiyak eventually. We can probably use him as a base.
>>48766323Well that's a car.
>>48766324That was already established as being a thing we can do without wishing, learn to read.
>>48766324Let's make a BUNCH of little ones to fight!
>>48766294His writing has gotten better since the SAQ days at least.
>>48766399It's gotten worse. I've seen his Akun quests.
>>48765991Ugh. We need to find a name that references both bread and vegetables.
>>48766494I suppose, for our third kid, that's a good TEMP name
>>48765458"Well, for starters, you're going to be hungry. A lot. A LOT. In fact let me get a list started...""Thank you." she sighs in relief.You keep jotting down notes. "You are DEFINITELY going to want to talk to Bulma about this, though. She'll get you some things to help this along. And... well, I think you really should talk with Vegeta about this. I can come with if you need someone to help talk-""I... think that might break him." she comments dryly."Well, still. Let him know, if on your own terms. I mean, unless you two... actually, what are you two? Is there something there, like does he show any actual attraction, or is it just more...?"Her face somehow gets redder. "I mean. Well. I wouldn't deny that he's kinda fun when he's... not completely grumpy over everything that's happened. First time he was-""First time?" you repeat.She's hiding her face now. "...Launch's party."You give her a slightly accusing look. "...anyway. Well, hey, maybe he'll be able to pull that stick out of his ass and take some pride in having a kid. Bra seems like she turned out really well, given the circumstances she was in.""Wait, that girl was his kid?!" she almost shouts."Time Travel. It hurts even my head. Point is... don't stress about this. Stress is bad for a pregnancy." you tell her softly. "You'll make a great mom.""Right. Don't stress. Okay."Your turn for your cheeks to redden. "...um. Would... you be at all opposed to letting me be the kid's godmother?"She laughs. "Girl, unless you know of any space monkey moms out there, I think you're a clear cut for first choice.""Well... none living. Er... none living in this timeline. I think."(cont.)
>>48766624The two of you share one last laugh as Shao heads out with you. A chat between Bulma and her, and a direction to some of Capsule Corp's medical staff for the inevitable morning sickness medication, leave you and the purple haired woman together, Acer busy working on the new Gravity Chamber's computer as the kids play in the Briefs' garden."Her and Vegeta, huh?" Bulma comments."There've... been stranger." you reply, twirling a finger in your hair.She looks at you for a moment and then realizes what you mean. "Ah. Right. Bra.""W-well, not to imply that it's-"She giggles. "I'm surprised myself, really.">A. Could be more surprising, believe me>B. So, any other help you need with the Gravity Chamber?>C. Say, have you been up to anything else recently, like say... some kind of mech suit?>D. You know, I've been meaning to ask, but maybe it'd be a good idea to look into those Ki Containers, from King Piccolo's day>E. Something else?
>>48766645>A. Could be more surprising, believe meMaple x Vegeta AU when?
>>48766645>A. Could be more surprising, believe me"Trunks was yours and Goku's. THAT one I can actually see. Remember when I was teasing you about it when I was like 9? Good times.">B.

>>48766759The hell does that mean?

Quick, post funsexydragonball porn of BulmaxVegeta
>>48766759Chichi is our first choice
>>48766645>A. Could be more surprising, believe me...>Hey Bulma, you ever entertained the idea of going... lilly?
>>48766874And Bulma is our second.
>>48766915Autism girl stop thinking with your clam
>>48766678Does Goku plow Suno in this AU?
>>48767217Suno needs to get plowed in at least one AU.
>>48767249Maybe we see if her and Raditz could be an item if things don't work out with him and Tights.
>>48767249In my Mount & Blade run, Suno got plowed by the Nords while Harlaus and his crew were off getting Veluca.
>>48767345Swadian cities always get plowed cause Harlaus is incompetent.
>>48766645"It could deeeeefinitely be more surprising. Believe me. And hey, Trunks was your and Goku's kid. To be honest that kinda makes more sense to me. Hah, remember how me and Tights teased you about that back when I was like, nine?" you ask, nudging her in the shoulder."As I said then, I wasn't going to date Goku when he was 12." she gives in a comically adamant response."Or you could try-" ...on second thought. No, even if that did seem more stable than Vegeta. And you... "...nevermind. Anyway! Gravity Chamber design working out okay? Need any more help today?""Nah, we're good. I'll let Acer finish the initial programming. It should be better than ever when we're done." Bulma comments, giving a stretch."Well, if that's the case, maybe we can work on some other projects in the meantime. Ooh, say, have you tried anything recently? Like saaaay... a mech suit for yourself?"Bulma goes oddly quiet for a moment, looking away. "...I've thought about the idea, but, I've decided against it.""Why so?"(cont.)
>>48767450She sighs. "To be completely honest, Maple, that encounter during the invasion scared the hell out of me. Tried putting on a brave face. I... I'm not a fighter like you guys. Even if I did have some kind of giant mech of some kind, I don't really think I'd be fit to go out and protect things myself." She then goes back to smiling. "Besides, I've got some upgrades that I've put into Gato to help with that. And I've got this brilliant idea for something new. Special humanoid defense robot. Still need to work the kinks out, but Pantea is probably gonna love the little guy."Oooh, intriguing. "If you ever need help with it, I'm but a call away. Oh! One more thing. I think it might be worth finally taking a deeper look into those Ki containers that King Piccolo had. Might be able to give us an edge if we figure out how they work.""Hmm... worth a shot, Maple."Looks like you've got a busy few months ahead.https://youtu.be/1F7MwxJ43Vk>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #45 END>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that's all for tonight, folks. I'll be around for questions and such for a while like usual. Did y'all have fun?
>>48767469Thanks for running Kato. Hope you have a pleasant weekend. Any big plans?
>>48767469Thanks mom, had fun.So Vegeta and Shao huh? How likely is it they'll actually end up together?
>>48767469If you could change one major event from this quest what would it be?
>>48767737About as likely as Vegeta and Bulma I'd wager.
>>48767469How long until we get on the transformation training? It was brought up at least.
>>48767469I do have fun making dumb writeins and defending them in intense debate.
>>48767585>>48767737Thanks for playing!Current weekend plans involve trying to make sure I don't catch the cold my wife just recovered from (Primus knows I've tried my best not to catch it, but it might be inevitable).Vegeta... tolerates Shao. He doesn't have any romantic inclination towards her. They had some mutual fun and that's about as far as their relationship goes. Shao isn't sure he'd make a good father, given his anger issues.>>48767932Do you?>>48767839When enough players vote on it.>>48767762Maybe the Namek fight.
>>48768190>Maybe the Namek fight.What would you rather have happened?
>>48768190>Vegeta... tolerates Shao. I'm not sure vegeta/bulma started much better
>>48768489Things play out longer, I get a chance to draw out some things about the Big Gete Star more, some more background on the Banished Namekians.>>48768561It basically didn't. Doesn't mean he's going down the same path here. For all anyone knows, Vegeta could end up Dukat.You know, before he joined a cult.
