A young woman stands in her bedroom. It just so happens that today, the third of May, 2016, is this young woman's birthday, for real this time. Though it was fifteen years ago she was given life, it is only today she will be given a name!

===>

What will the name of this young lady be?

> Lememe Lorde

Try again, smartass.

> Present image to clarify nature of text-based medium.

The text-based nature of the medium in which you exist seems pretty clear to you. This is a picture of you, should you require one.

However your name is not Lucy Andrea.

> Present image of room.
Your room is spartan, bordering on bleak. Your ascetic aesthetic would be accurately represented by a blank white page, perhaps with a single vertical black bar set off-center. This can be imagined easily enough.

Yes, you have a computer in your room.

Yes, it is an Apple device. Obviously.

Anyway yeah you have a bed and a window and stuff; it's just all rather minimalistic.

===>
You are, as you have always been? or something (the metatextuality is kind of unclear) Abby Cayman, and today, as has previously been stated, is your fifteenth birthday.

You have a variety of interests, including the MINIMALISM displayed in your room. Speaking of your room, you accidentally knocked the CLOCK off your wall earlier. You ought to sweep up the shards.

You enjoy long BOOKS, though this is not necessarily an indicator of good taste. Your most recently devoured tome, Infinite Jest, is technically of indeterminate length (as a semi-circular narrative) (boy you really do like your parenthesis) and has given you a taste for the META.

You also enjoy SKIING. Silence and the smooth swish of snow and a steep hill before you; these things make your heart sing and your mouth smile.

You appreciate a well-composed PUN now and then; occasionally you choose to indulge in SEMIMAYBEUNIRONIC?GENDER DISCUSSION in the MIDNIGHT CREW GENERAL threads. You like sweet foods.

Oh, and sometimes, if the game is right (and this one most assuredly will be; Andrew Hussie himself is heading the story and dev team) you like to play VIDEO GAMES with your friends.
>>
>>220098
You don't know anyone with those names. You suppose your dad's name might be John? But you don't actually know.

Man. That's pretty weird, now that you think about it.

>>220081
What?

Nah. Do crocodiles even hiss?

>>220102
You are not a mime, though your apparent mimesis of one might insinuate such. You just like black and white is all.

Mimes are pretty alright you guess. You admire the subtle commentaries they pose unanswered through movement alone. Yeah, you could see yourself learning mime at some point.

Not now though. Today you've got stuff to do.
>>
>>220112

What? PART 7 of THE MIDNIGHT CREW ADVENTURE was a masterpiece.

Okay maybe you cried the first time you saw it, but you wouldn't cry again you don't think.

It was pretty great though.

>>220128
4chan yes. /b/ no. You prefer /lit/, which is actually the best board for shitposting on 4chan, far superior to [s4s] or trashheaps like /b/ or /v/. You have friends who would disagree, but their taste is objectively shit.
>>
>>220125
>>220137
Oh and also check if we're still missing an arm
>>
>>220128
> Abby: Retrieve arms.
Why? Your ROBOPROSTHETIC (left) ARM is currently charging in its CHARGING STATION, where you left it. Where else would it be? Retrieving your other arm is out of the question, since it is attached to your body right where it should be.
>>
>>220138

this. then describe in detail your new sexy body.
>>
>>220140
You've never had a left arm. You assume you were born without one, unless your DAD cut it off whilst you were too young to remember.

Speaking of your DAD, you can smell him now, baking up a veritable frenzy downstairs.

Man that guy sure does bake a lot. He makes cakes for any occasion, or no occasion at all. You've tried to ask him to stop more than once, but well it just seems like some kind of bizarre ineffable universal constant.

>>220155
You would definitely punch the physical incarnation of puberty if you could get ahold of the fucker. Periods are a fucking bitch.

But you can't so you settle for impotently shaking your fist at the air like some kind of idiot.

Yeah your clock is broken.

>>220166
But your DAD is in the kitchen! If you go in there without having a proper STRIFE SPECIBUS ALLOCATION, he will give you a stern look of FATHERLY DISAPPROVAL and you don't want that.

>>220167
Cakes are alright you guess. Awfully fattening though, probably. Not like you would know.

>>220159
Your new sexy body after hitting puberty would be covered in whatever passes for blood in the fucker's body, because you hit it so hard.

Ugh.

You don't think your dad would consider that a good idea. You already have FISTKIND, so he's not too worried about you defending yourself. You think he wants you to learn to use a proper weapon, like his cakes.

>>220179

Present time.
>>
>>220436
You hope the present contains the MIME 101 tome, like you had asked for.
>>
>>220442
You open your door and step outside.

A faint breeze martyrs itself on the upper edge of your concrete shoebox, dissipating thenceforth into the interminable aether whence it came. The sun hangs overhead like a milky-white eye, as if to suggest God is not dead, merely blind - and yet His unseeing gaze still washes it bone-white.

It is your fifteenth birthday, and, as with all fourteen before it, you feel something is missing from your life. What? You cannot say. Its very lack makes any attempt to divine its nature maddening. It is as if some tremendously shitty riddler reached into your nascent fetal mind and plucked from therein a neuron, cutting all its connections, so that you would never know what it was, exactly, you were missing; the perfect crime.

Well, it would be perfect in all respects save one. The riddler is shitty, and the riddle he poses base and crude. It matters not. He Is Already Here, and you are-


But helpless Pieces of the Game He plays

Upon this Checker-board of Nights and Days;

Hither and thither moves, and checks, and slays,

And one by one back in the Closet lays.

>>
>>220504
Oh yeah. You had a mailbox to get to before you did all that pretentious monologuing.

Does it count as monologuing if you're kind of the narrator by virtue of their remaining a simple transparent proxy (so far)?

You haven't the slightest clue.

You put the little red flag-marker-thingy back down and withdraw from the mailbox four presents. One is small and immaculately wrapped in teal wrapping paper. You don't even have to glance at the tag to know that ND (you mean neuralDilemma, the one who's good at gift giving) sent it to you. That guy puts teal on everything. There is what is pretty transparently a self-help book from ND (naturalDaybreak, the one with the erratic capitalization) and a well-wrapped deep green roughly circular thing, as well as a slim golden folder-type dealio. folio. huh woo that actually worked there. You're like some kind of portmanteaumaestro.

You think you'll shut up while you're ahead.

You remove the presents from their den, but pause. There's a card made out of actual cardboard at the back.

[Which presents are opened first?]

You carefully set your other presents on the sidewalk and reach forth into the mailbox, fingers groping in the dark.

The card is... rough, but you guess it says a lot that AA sent you something at all.

HEY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I KNOW I'M TECHNICALLY THE ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FABULOUS NEW ARM, BUT I GOT YOU SOMETHING ELSE ANYWAY.

I'LL JUST GIVE IT TO YOU THE NEXT TIME WE MEET IN PERSON I GUESS.

Haha. What a softie. Deliberately writing the same way as her broken capslock key makes her type.

You decide to open your second present before engaging your DAD in STRIFE. You're pretty sure you know exactly what it's going to be though.

Actually, on second thought, it looks a bit slim for a self-help book.

You push the orange package on one of your knees to push the book up and out. Not having both arms is something you're used to.

Huh. It's not a self-help book at all.

It's a copy of Mein Kampf.

Well.

You resolve to at least read his justification.

Hallo Friend and Happy Birth-Day. I Gift to You this copy of a Most Valuable Book to me. I Once Liked Self Help Books but This has shown Me that true Help For The Self must come from Within The Self.

As I Gather a Widely Despised Ideology is Espoused Herein, I Now also Gift to You a CAPTCHALOGUE CARD.

How ironic is he? You just don't know. Another CAPTCHA CARD is much appreciated though.

You carefully stack your remaining presents and carry them back up to your room.

You have a chum to pester, a DAD to STRIFE, and a game to play.

Each of the kids is based on an internet archetype.

You re-enter your house, presents in hand, and return to your room. You'll want to have both arms on hand (hehe) before you STRIFE with Dad.

Seriously though he is a powerful opponent and not to be underestimated. His MANGRIT is through the roof, and his GUARDIAN RUBRICS are pretty ridiculous.

You arm yourself, depositing the remaining presents on your bed, and head downstairs, where your FATHER awaits.
===>

You ready your tomekind, and your father lights the candles of his current cake.

S T R I F E

> Aggress:
You lunge forward, swiping your tome downward with both hands in what would be a no-doubt devastating blow-
Except your father AUTO-PASTRIES the strike leaving you just kind of standing there.

> Aggress:
You shuffle forward, holding your copy of Infinite Jest downward in a feint to distract from your fistkind attack.
It's no use. He somehow produces another pastry from beneath the first and you perform a 2x cakehit combo.

> Abjure:
You stammer excuses: You haven't had time to learn tomekind - you're not quite up to speed with your new arm - it's your birthday so he should let you win. Your DAD says not a word, but you can see the stern fatherly disapproval in his face.

Alright.
>>
>>223294
> Abscond:
You cannot flee! This pesky guardian figure is blocking your path. You will need to engineer some kind of DISTRACTION to escape.

Your DEWEYDECIMODUS currently contains the following THREE ITEMS in its four cards/slots:
1x CAPTCHA CARD
1x MEIN KAMPF COPY
1x DEWEY DECIMALICTIONARY

The FOURTH card/slot is empty.

What will you do? [write-in]

Equip your newly acquired MEIN KAMPF COPY TOME, to match your father's skill with OVENS.
>>
>>223356
025.431 summons forth the daunting volume. Why didn't you equip this to your tomekind specibus?

Because it is boring as fuck.

Anyway you ask your DAD for help categorizing some stuff. He ushers you over to the kitchen table and bids you to sit before returning with a plated slice of cake, a fork, and a glass of cold water, which he sets down.

The two of you pore over pages seeking answers, and it is only later, when you have returned upstairs with your brand-new MIME MODUS, a full stomach, and your father's silent yet supportive guidance that you realize that you got hardcore DOTESMITED upon.

Welp.

DA: happy birthday
DA: i hope you like your present
DA: if you don't thats okay too
AD: let me guess. yours is the gold one?
DA: oh. i should have wrapped it in something else.
AD: (I haven't opened it yet)
DA: thats okay
DA: its not much anyway
DA: sorry
AD: (no its fine really)

> Abby: Open golden folio.
You unwrap the package. Inside is a carefully made card. You open the card, and a complicated network of paper levers, strips, and gears unfurls, blossoming open. When the card is fully open, the words Happy Birthday suddenly become apparent.

You open and close the card again, delighted by its mechanical intricacy. Your doing so rips a strip of paper.

AD: you made this?
DA: i had a little help
DA: oh but be careful
DA: if you open it too far it'll rip
>>
>>223538
You goofed. Set about repairing the card at once.
Meanwhile inquire about how to make repairs, if -theoretically- the card were to rip.
>>
>>223538
AD: well I'll be sure not to do that then
AD: you up for some SBURB later?
DA: i hope so
AD: um hypothetically
AD: (theoretically I mean)
DA: you broke it didn't you
DA: its fine
DA: it was paper anyway
DA: it would never have lasted
DA: it lacked any kind of worth anyways

um okay then.
>>
>>223580
AD: so um hows that flight training going?
DA: oh its going alright
DA: working on my vfr cert.
AD: really?
DA: its going to suck given my condition
DA: but well its something to strive towards
>>
>>223580
Quick, let's pester AA then play some sburb.
>>
Alright.

-anaphoricDilettante (that's you) is now pestering anonymousAlias-


AA: WHY DO I EVEN HANG OUT WITH YOU
AD: nice to talk to u too
AA: AUGH
AA: ANYWAY
AA: THAT STUFF I TOLD YOU LAST NIGHT
AA: I WAS DRUNK.
AD: I think that was pretty obvious desu
AA: NO SHIT
AA: SO
AA: I'D APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULDN'T TELL NN
AA: OR ANYONE ACTUALLY
AA: EVER
AA: I MEAN I KNOW YOU WOULDN'T
AA: YOU'RE A GOOD FRIEND EVEN IF YOU FUCK UP MY CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS
AA: BUT
AD: yeah I get it
AD: nn will never know.
AA: ALRIGHT THAT'S ALL THANKS
AA: HAPPY BIRTHDAY

> Lucy: Remember SYLLADEX

AD: can u help me w/ sylladex allocation?
AA: JUST ALLOCATE ARMKIND
AA: YOU HAVE AN ARM
AA: I'M THE ONE WHO ASKED HER TO SEND IT TO YOU
AA: SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY
AA: BUT YOUR REAL PRESENT SHOULD GET TO YOU SHORTLY
AA: OH SHIT BYE GOTTA DO SOMETHING

-AA has LOGGED THE FUCK OFF, BITCHES-
>>
>>223652
Who is Lucy? You should use that captcha card, Abby.
>>
>>223671
Yeah AA calls you that sometimes.
Who knows why. Weird, huh?

As for the CAPTCHA CARD, you spend some time trying to mime the action of captchaloguing but fail completely. You have no idea where the DEWEY DECIMODUS would class such a METACONSTRUCT, and you don't really want to find ouy
>>
>>223685
All this is too confusing or you. Let's calm down with some sburb. Maybe DA will play?
>>
>>223685
Open the remaining presents.
The teal and green ones remain, yes?
I vote teal. so are there two NDs?
>>
imouto-chan has more grad stuff tonight, so be forewarned: I may disappear.

>>223722
yep. totally not because I made a typo oh no
>>
>>223723
Just checking, famalam.

If this is actually hussie I applaud you.
Maybe he could actually write what he wanted homestuck to be instead of the ruined-by-tumblrfags version that it is now.

Are we using the mime modus or dewey decimodus?
>>
>>224045

>>
alright it is late. Thread will resume when I wake up tomorrow and should go for a couple hours then at least - imouto has a lot of grad stuff going on. grad ceremony proper is afternoon, but evening I should be back.
>>
>patiently waiting bump

Also, good stuff OP.
>>
I've been refreshing this thread for hours now

Moirai pls come back to us
>>
>>224324
> Moira: attend grad ceremony
>>
>>223722
You do have two presents left.

> Abby: Open small teal package.
ND (neuralDilemma) already sent you a new arm, but you certainly wouldn't mind a battery pack or something for it.

You peel the wrapping paper back to reveal a small arm attachment and accompanying letter.

so I meant to make you a battery/
but I kinda got carried away, haha/
anyway this is a really cool thing regardless/
even if it is not a battery/
[it is not a battery]/
[it is actually kind of the opposite of a battery]/
so yeah if you put this thing on your arm it'll burn the rest of the battery/
but it's like a temporary upgrade. maybe it'll help against your dad?/
happy birthday/
nd
>>
>>227577
ooh! the other present can wait, lets go assert our dominance over the father with this new device.
>>
>>227640
Seconded.
>>
>>227640
>>227751
SBURB is coming out soon enough that you don't think you have time for another round.

> Abby: Open NN's present.
You strip the wrappings from the deep green package, revealing an arcane scroll.

> Abby: Unfurl scroll
You settle for only unfurling the first bit; it's pretty long. You can't read the esoteric runes written within. Yep this is pretty clearly NN's alright. Two small notes fall out:

Note 1:
I present this to you on this, the fifteenth anniversary of your birth; a boon granted in light of our friendship. Should you wish to remove some offending party from your life I have taken the liberty of composing for you the majority of this curse. Simply smear blood taken from the intended in the demarcated portions I have marked with an A before sealing with the enclosed wax, stamp, and candle. To activate, burn.

Note 2: Be sure to burn in a flame not produced by the aforementioned accompanying candle; I have accounted for others attempting to turn this curse against you.
>>
>>228398
Carefully store away the entire scroll package and then make sure your chums are ready to play SBURB.
>>
>>228513
Your room is pretty bare. Where would you store the scroll away? You answer the metaquestion by lifting your mattress to reveal a recessed space where you keep all your junk.

You don't mean junk as in trash, although your trash receptacle is neatly situated in one corner of the submatress compartment. You mean junk as in stuff. NN's scroll goes into a corner. It probably wouldn't do anything but you would absolutely hate for something that she put so much work into to fall into the wrong hands.

That would be pretty terrible, wouldn't you think?
>>
>>228513
You aren't quite sure what to think about her magic. You aren't a capital-A atheist, more like an agnostic - not like neuralDilemma, who is pretty much as much as a humanist as it is possible to be - but you really don't think magic exists. Why would it?

So the scroll goes under your bed.

[metapost]
imouto done did herself a graduation. we were all very proud of her - we being the flock of relatives who consequently descended on the house and stopped me from getting very much writing done.

Tomorrow I am going to spend at least part of with my little cousins before they fly back out of state - rest assured after that we should be back to beginning-of-thread speed.

>>228981
If I ever need something 3d printed I will ask you, anon.
>>
>>229161
Please do. Doesn't even have to be HS related, I'm just starting off with these. I usually hang out in not-HSG and you can contact me through the form on the link; you can put a fake email in if you give me some other form of contact as well.
>>
>>229141
AA: LET'S FUCKING GO

> Abby: Load SBURB beta.
You click the link. The SBURB spirograph spins on your screen -

Tomorrow's my only off day, will be there.

-Dun
>>
>patiently waiting bump
>>
>>231761
- and that's it. The game is apparently installed.

You will eventually come to understand that this is because the installation itself is a mere formality; SBURB Is Already Here. When you clicked that link you sealed absolutely nobody's fate, you will tell yourself.

Whose fault was it?
The Mage, no more than a puppet of fate?
The Prince, who strove for victory your session could never provide?
The Knight, whose plan might have worked if only you'd listened?
The Witch, who arguably foresaw all of this but did nothing?
The Rogue, who only did what he thought was right?
>>
>>233939
You can't in good conscience blame any of them.

Eventually you will conclude that none of this was your fault, that the forces far beyond your control which had taken advantage of your infertile session had swept the chessboard bare.

What kind of a game? The only game there is, of course. Prospit and Derse, Skaia and the Noble Circle, Space and Time.

It's just that your session was (you'll stick with the past tense here, because you don't want to even try to parse that nonsense anymore) fought on a different axis - between, primarily, a Mother and a Doctor.

so whats AA's modus and specibi?

You’re standing (or sitting?) in your darkened room. The only source of light is your laptop screen.
Anyway your own server player is connecting.
What? SBURB just released, and Abby’s busy STRIFEing her DAD. It’s her birthday, and you think you’ll be better able to guide her if you already know about the game. Obviously.
You don’t intend to tell her this but it’s her birthday and you want your friend to be happy. Yeah. That’s the only reason.

> Corn: Provide exposition on server player.
Well ND is a pain in the ass, ND is weird, and DA probably needs some time to decompress. AD is going to be your player – so you pretty much had to have NN as your server. You mean there just weren’t a lot of options is all.
Yeah.
If you’re honest with yourself (you’re not) you’d admit you have a thing for NN. It’s fucking 4chan’s fault, though: You started out with the YAOIS and progressed to TRAP STUFF and now you spend most of your time interacting with her thinking about how SISTERS (which she once described you as) DON’T um do anything but have close fulfilling completely non-sexual relationships.

NN: Certainly; It is Abby’s birthday to-day though {I think}
NN: Playing wyth her would no doubt make up for not getting her a present
NN: Should you wish your friendship to remain intact I would suggest you play with her; in lieu of a gift mayhaps bonds may be strengthened.
fuck fuck fuckity fuck

Yep. You think having two friends with similar handle acronyms is a pain in the ass but you can't really ask them to change. There are only so many letters in the alphabet after all.

[there is a reason I cut away. don't worry anons]

AA: OF COURSE I GOT HER A PRESENT

(You got ND to make her the arm a while back, you mean. you didn't get her an actual present but well you're not going to admit that)

AA: I JUST THOUGHT YOU'D WANT TO PLAY WITH ME IS ALL
AA: NEVER MIND

-AA (that's you!) has left the conversation-

Is she insulted? You don't care. Okay maybe you do care, a lot, but that isn't something you'd express.

She drops a bunch of machines in your driveway, and you prepare to ask her about them but

-your chum anaphoricDilettante is pestering you-

so you proceed to have a conversation that you have already had about entry.

Your cat, roxy, knocks over something in the dark; there is a sound like the crash of a wave.
>>
>>234445
Roxkit you adorable alcoholic you.

Inspect the mess.
>>
>>234445
Explore the noise. Explore the house. Get the fuck out of your room you lazy little shit, don't make our mistakes.
>>
>>234476
AD: perhaps?
AA: OH SHIT MY CAT JUST KNOCKED SOMETHING OVER
AA: BEE ARE BEE, AS THEY SAY

Fucking Roxy, always tipping stuff over. You love her unabashedly. You cannot INSPECT the mess because you can't see anything because your room is dark because you still have a hangover, remember?

AA: ALRIGHT
AA: CAN'T HAVE BEEN THAT IMPORTANT ANYWAY
AD: please stop perving on my dad and play this game
AA: OF COURSE

You reluctantly scroll away from her DAD's perfectly-shaped butt and up into the bathroom, where you accidentally throw a bathtub through a wall. fuck.

You drop the TOTEM LATHE right in all that nice empty space her room provides, the ALCHEMITER in her living room, and the CRUXSTRUDER so that it covers up the place where the bathtub isn't.
>>
>>234508
> Be Abby.

AD: Cora if you disturbed my father's tablestickball game there is going to be hell to pay
AD: Cora what was that noise I heard
AD: cora what is this in my room
AD: it is not a good birthday present

You quickly captchalogue the TOTEM LATHE and take a moment to be surprised that your modus can hold such a large object before remembering that Cora is probably wrecking your house.

So now what? What do you fucking do with all this machine stuff?
>>
>>234525
Inspect the fuck out of everything.

What do we have in our room again?
>>
>>234525
Lets check on what cora did later
>>
>>234829
[hehehe]
"what cora did later"
> Be future Cora

You have a USB in one hand.

You prepare mentally. The physical actions themselves feel almost meaningless. Time travel happens when it has happened; you did not see it and so it did not happen.

You are very tired but you know what you must do.
>>
>>234881
[how much of this do you have planned out OP?]
be Abby again.
>>
>>234881
Not that far op
I want to see how hard corn managed to fuck up our house
>>
>>234525
> Abby: Leave room.
Your room is pretty spartan. You have a mattress on the floor with blankets, a desk, a window, four walls, a ceiling, floor and door. You keep it empty in keeping with your AESTHETIC.
You walk into the hallway. There is a BATHTUB on the floor, and a REFRIGERATOR placed against the wall for some reason, most likely to block a hole in the wall between your BATHROOM and the hallway.

WATER flows out from underneath the REFRIGERATOR, confirming your suspicions.
>>
>>235072
Try captchalogue-ing the fridge and tub. Check on your father.
>>
>>235099
You successfully captcha the BATHTUB but leave the FRIDGE, since you doubt your DAD would be pleased to see a hole in the wall.

DAD seems to still be in the kitchen, baking up a storm.

> Abby: Enter bathroom.
You consider using the bathroom and open the door to assess the damage.

There is a giant hole in the floor where the BATHTUB was; over the hole is a giant machine. Wait shit Cora can see you. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but last night you learned she was into girls soooo

you don't think you'll be using the bathroom anytime soon. Cora is your friend but she was ogling your dad pretty hard there; who's to say that'd be the end of it?

There's a wheel on the machine. You twist it, but it looks like it needs a little something to get moving.
>>
>>235823
Convert the machine into an idol for the SBURB gods.
Alternatively, ask Cora what the machines do.
>>
>>235853
-AA pestering AD (you know the drill)-
AD: What do these machines do?
AA: I DON'T FUCKING KNOW
AA: THEY'RE JUST SITTING IN MY HOUSE TAKING UP SPACE
AA: A;SDKJF;KJGGOIPEIVNAPNIWOPIDVNID
AA: HIT THE CRUXTRUDER WITH SOMETHING
AA: THROW SOMETHING IN
AA: USE THE CARD WITH THE LATHE AND PUT THE RESULT IN THE ALCHEMITER
AA: AND THEN DO WHATEVER
AA: I HAVE SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT TO DO NOW
AA: BYE
>>
>>235878
Figure out which machine is which.
Perhaps try captchaloging them?
>>
>>235893
You use your tomekind to STRIFE the machine before you and try to spin the wheel.

-negativeNominalist is pestering you-

The notification arrives and startles you just as you are spinning the wheel, so when the KERNELSPRITE emerges, a CRUXITE DOWEL shoots forth and automatically prototypes itself. A timer begins to tick (6:03).

Far overhead: lines of light trace shifting patterns on the sky. A portal expands and begins to spin.
>>
>>235999
ITS HAPPENING

PANIC AND ACCIDENTALLY EJECT YOUR CAPTCHALOGUE THROWING ALL THE SHIT AT THE KERNEL
>>
>>236035
You currently have a BATHTUB, a DEWEY DECIMALICTIONARY, a copy of MEIN KAMPF, and a CAPTCHA CARD in your SYLLADEX.

You don't have any reason to panic.
>>
>>235999
prototype mein kampf
Tell your dad that you have a new oven timer.
>>
>>236055
Examine sky for portal [if litteral] THEN have a reason to panic.

Also, prototype the Bathtub WITH Mein Kampf
>>
>>236060
>>236067
Having equipped MEIN KAMPF to your tomekind, you smack the CRUXSPRITE.

Thankfully, nothing happens. You realize that you might have prototyped MEIN KAMPF if you were unlucky and a shiver of horror runs over you.

That would have been absolutely terrible. Can you even imagine?

I can.

It would have been glorious
>>
>>236140
Prototype CRUXSPRITE with the MIME MODUS to create CRIMESPRITE.
>>
>>236161
An excellent idea. You deploy the TOTEM LATHE, deequip your MIME MODUS and throw it into the KERNELSPRITE, which flashes black and white.

You now have a sneaky silent mimeman wearing a domino mask. CRIMESPRITE. He looks like quite the scoundrel. She. well they? nah not plural. Your possibly gender-neutral mime looks like a sneaky fucker.

CRIMESPRITE performs a scooping gesture, and your BATHTUB leaves your modus and appears in its hands.
>>
>>236169
Ask CRIMESPRITE what you should be doing.
Consider getting it some paper and a pen.
>>
>>236200
Give the son of a bitch a pen and paper and ask him what the fuck now?
>>
>>236169
I suppose the sprites proper name would be CRIMEMODUXSPRITE or something like that.
>>
>>236140
captchalogue CRIMESPRITE , we wouldnt want to lose him/her/they/it
>>
>>236200
>>236280
CRIMESPRITE is a MIME and as such eschews inferior forms of communication!

CRIMESPRITE performs a series of increasingly complex gestures before pulling your TOTEM LATHE out of your SYLLADEX. There is a PRE-PUNCHED CARD on the floor.

Your SPRITE tells you (through masterful gesticulations) that the PREPUNCHED CARD, another CRUXITE DOWEL, and the TOTEM LATHE need to be used and the result put into the ALCHEMITER.

You wonder for a second how you know such terminology then put it out of your mind. It's clearly just more meta bullshit.
>>
>>237940
You suspect this would only lead CRIMESPRITE to withdraw itself from your SYLLADEX or something. Besides that would leave you out of room.

What do?
>>
>>238111
Check the time on the cruxtruder.
Ask CS how to mime like the pros.
>>
>>238111
Well, follow the sprite's advice. Start making the thingy!
>>
>>238111
>>238125
Also this.
>>
>>238122
5:13 remaining. CRIMESPRITE furtively glances about.

>>238125
You place the PREPUNCHED CARD into a slot on the TOTEM LATHE, which presumably carves NON-SEXUAL FETISHES.

You mean like wooden idols. NN would probably know exactly what you would have meant.

The TOTEM LATHE carves the CRUXITE DOWEL - in a manner presumably dictated by the PREPUNCHED CAPTCHA CARD. Simple enough.

You take the resulting CARVED CRUXITE DOWEL down into your LIVING ROOM where the ALCHEMITER awaits.
>>
This is too easy. Prepare to be ambushed by Dad.
>>
>>238142
Puzzle out what that arm upgrade do-dad does.

>>238142
>>238176
Why wouldn't it be easy, you wonder? The game is already wrecking your house.

Your DAD is staring at the machine, you think. His lack of visible eyes makes it kind of hard to tell.

You place the CARVED CRUXITE DOWEL on the approprate plinth of the ALCHEMITER. Arms extend and scan the object, and at a cost of 0 build grist (whatever that means), you create...
>>
>>238204
... Well you aren't quite sure exactly what it is. It's white, just like the CRUXITE DOWEL was, and it's...
spherical.

You carefully pick the object up. It feels cold and heavy in your hand.

(Timer: 4:14)

Now what?
>>
>>238218
The time is now, RE-STRIFE dad.
>>
>>238232
Sure you guess. You drop the WHITE SPHERE on your dad's tablestickball table (tablestickballtable?) (you are untablestickballable to understand why you would say such a thing) and venture forth into the KITCHEN, where your DAD awaits.

The air is white with flour; you can barely see. You use your tomekind to attempt to clear some air and seek him out, but your father is

already behind you

and his arms wrap around you in a FIRM FATHERLY HUG. You feel a bit guilty but it's now or never you guess so you dedaptcha the chip into your arm and whip your fist straight for your DAD's head.

He ducks of course, but it's the closest you've ever come to hitting him.
>>
>>238270
LOOK UP A GUIDE OR SOMETHING
HURRY THE FUCK UP
>>
>>238289
Once you extricate yourself from your DAD's grasp, you proceed to waste a couple minutes on the internet. You check a bunch of guides, most of which seem untrustworthy and one of which is overly wordy.

You don't know what to do, and, it seems, neither does CRIMESPRITE.

The meteor draws closer. 2:20 remain on the CRUXTRUDER's timer. The cue ball awaits.
>>
>>238755
Time to be the tablestick shark you were always meant to be. It might be a bit awkward to use the cue with one arm, though.
>>
Use the tablestickball stick to knock the white ball in one of the tablestickballs ballholes.
>>
>>238755
Corner pocket that thing.
>>
>>238767
You suppose a round of tablestickball wouldn't hurt. AA isn't answering any of your messages anyway.

The cuestick hits the cue ball, and the cue ball hits the others. One-two. Click-Smack. The break scatters the balls all over the table and the eight ball straight into a pocket.

You aren't one to place a whole lot of stock in superstitions, but that is pretty fucking foreboding right there.

You fail to notice that the cue ball rolled off the table.
>>
>>238855
>Cue-ball : Break
>>
>>238862
> Cue ball: Break
You just did that is what you would say if you had a mind. You do not have a mind. You are a cue ball.

You roll and bounce your way down out of the house, landing in the lawn. You are awfully durable.

Years in the future somebody may pick you up. You would hope it wouldn't be too many except you are a cueball and incapable of thought.
>>
>>238879
>Abby: Go outside
>>
>>238945
You step outside and Holy Fuck there is a meteor.

You spend the last seconds before the timer hits zero flipping the fuck out.
