Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1626586/Character Sheet: https://pastebin.com/as7jUTfkYou are Ryoma Shizuhara, a young man living with his grandfather in the small town of Hashigata while your mother goes under chemotherapy, and you've gotten tangled up with a mysterious world that exists behind mirrors and pulls in people who don't conform to the roles other people try to force them into, turning them into compliant puppets. You recently rescued Momoko Ayabe from the Reflected World and currently waiting for her to recover from her time there. >Thursday, 4/21, Before ClassYou over hear some chatter while you walk to school. "I heard that a new student transferred to Mitsugi High.""Really? Why'd anyone wanna transfer here?"Doesn't sound like he wanted to do it. Rumor has it is that he's the son of the Chief Financial Officer for Junes.""Damn, sounds like he's rich. So why'd he come here? Someone with that kind of money could go literally anywhere else.""Beats me."(Continued)
>>1701511>MorningYou discover that the new kid you heard about is in your homeroom. He's got blonde hair that seems obviously dyed and a look in his eyes that tells you he's not happy to be here. He's also seated at the desk right next to yours.>Greet him.>Don't say anything>Write in
>>1701513>Greet him.What's up you meme loving fuck?
>>1701546"Yo."The student doesn't even look over to you. "What do you want?" he asks.>"Well, since you're sitting next to my desk, I thought it'd be a good idea to introduce myself. I'm Ryoma.">"Wow, you're not a morning person.">"Do you treat everyone this coldly?">Write in
>>1701960>What do YOU want?
>>1701960>>"Well, since you're sitting next to my desk, I thought it'd be a good idea to introduce myself. I'm Ryoma."
>>1701967>>1701992"What do YOU want?" you ask, a little taken aback by his rudeness. "Me? I want to just get through the year so I can get the hell out of this crappy town."Well, doesn't he seem nice.(Crap, I got distracted and time got away from me. Will continue tomorrow.)
>>1702453The class bell rings and the new student is brought to the front of the class. "Good morning, class!" says the teacher. "We have a new student who's joining us today. Why don't you tell us about yourself?"The new guy gives the class an 'I don't give a shit' look. "My name's Nobuhiko Goda, but if any of you peons try to get friendly with me, prepare to be disappointed. I don't have time to make friends with poor people."...Wow, did he seriously just say that? You sit there stunned and look around the room. The reactions of the other students ranges from 'wait, what?' to 'fuck this guy'.The teacher seems too shocked to respond as Nobuhiko sits down.>"...what the fuck is wrong with you?">"That was...rude?">"...fuck you, find somewhere else to sit, you pompous prick.">Write in.
>>1704817>"...fuck you, find somewhere else to sit, you pompous prick."
>>1704930>>1704967Need a tie breaker.
>>1705425"That was..."You pause, not sure how to phrase it."....Rude?"Nobuhiko rolls his eyes. "Like I care what these people think."You decide it's probably best not to interact with him any further.>After SchoolWhat do you want to do?>Hang out with Hiroji>Hang out with Yolanda>Go to Judo Club>Explore the school>Explore downtown>Explore Xinaian>Write in
>>1705685>Seek Nobuhiko out. He's gotta be around here somewhere if he hasn't left already. Maybe we'll find something else while we're at it - about those paranormal things the Occult Club leader mentioned?
>>1705685>Hang out with Yolanda
(Gotta scram, my battery's dying and I left my charger at my grandma's house)
>>1705865>>1705982You decide to hang out with Yolanda. After picking her up from the Reflected World, you take her downtown."So, this is your world?" she asks.>"Not a very interesting part of it, but yeah.">"Anything jogging your memory?">Write in
>>1708257>>"Anything jogging your memory?"
>>1708257>"Not a very interesting part of it, but yeah."
>>1708257>"Not a very interesting part of it, but yeah.">"Anything jogging your memory?"
>>1708266>>1708276>>1708403"Not a very interesting part of it, but yeah." you say. "Anything jogging your memory?" Yolanda shakes her head sadly. "No...even though the memories are hazy, this feels...different."You frown. "Do you remember when you were here?"Yolanda looks around, staring at the buildings. "These weren't here...when I was here.">"So you were probably in our world a long time ago.">"Maybe we should look somewhere else...">Write in
>>1708493>>"So you were probably in our world a long time ago."
>>1708493>"So you were probably in our world a long time ago."
>>1708529>>1708570"So you were probably in our world a long time ago." you surmise. Yolanda looks at you sadly. "With the passage of time, I doubt I'll ever find anything familiar.">"Don't lose hope. We'll find something.">"Hey, stuff like this takes time and effort. The answers won't just fall into our laps.">Write in
>>1708727>"Don't lose hope. We'll find something.">"Hey, stuff like this takes time and effort. The answers won't just fall into our laps.">We could always hit up the library, find some historical records and whatnot.
>>1708727>>"Hey, stuff like this takes time and effort. The answers won't just fall into our laps."
>>1708772>>1709427"Hey, stuff like this takes time and effort. The answers won't just fall into our laps. So don't lose hope, we'll find something. We could always hit up the library, find some historical records and whatnot."Yolanda smiles. "Thank you, Ryoma...">!>The PRIESTESS Social Link has reached Rank 2!She takes a look at the sky and squints. "It seems to be getting late..." she says. "We can check the library another day."You return Yolanda to the Reflected World.What do you want to do now?>Study>Hang out with Gramps>Listen to the radio>Write in

>>1718210>>1718732>You Knowledge has increased by 3!As you listen to the radio, you eventually get to the late night radio programming, and a sultry voice comes on the air."Hello, Hashigata, you're up way past your bed time. aren't you? Hope you've slipped into something comfortable- I know I have. If you're new to town, or just new to this whole radio thing, you're listening to Belladonna, the only girl who'll spend the night and leave first thing in the morning, guaranteed. You know how it goes, just call in and you might be the lucky listener to be heard on air."Eh, what the hell? On a whim, you pull out your phone and call the station. You get a few rings before you hear it pick up."You have the first shot at Belladonna tonight...so, who do I have the pleasure of speaking to~?"You pause. People usually use fake names on these types of shows, right? "Call me...">"...'Ichabod'.">"....'Lucky'."> (Use your real name)
>>1718785"...'Crane.'" you say. Belladonna gives a throaty chuckle on the other end of the line. "What an interesting name." she says. "So, why are you up so late, Crane?""Studying." you say. "Still in school, Crane?" asks Belladonna. "You're younger than most of my calling crowd. So, high school or college?">Be honest and say high school>Bluff and say college
>>1718844>Bluff and say college
>>1718844"College." you say. "Ooooh~," purrs Belladonna, a sound that makes you need a cold shower. "I always liked the college crowd...old enough to know how to have a good time, young enough to keep on 'til sunrise."Christ, this woman's giving you goosebumps."So, tell me Crane, what's a promising college student like you doing in the boonies?">Explain the situation with your mom, but keep it vague>Give all the details>Make something up
>>1719169>>Make something up
>>1719169>Explain the situation with your mom, but keep it vague
(going to a party, will continue this later tonight or tomorrow morning)
>>1719264>>1719323"My mom got sick, and I didn't want to put a burden on her, so I've temporarily moved out while my older sister takes care of her." You leave out the stuff about Gramps and the farm. You've kept the stuff about mom's cancer close to your chest since you got here, but if you told her about the farm, everyone who knew you would figure out who 'Crane' was."Aww, well I hope your mother gets better, Crane." Belladonna says sincerely. Then, she giggles flirtatiously, her voice like an invitation to the bedroom. "And if you're ever feeling lonely at night, you know where to find me~." >?!I am thou...thou art I...Thou hast established a new bond. It bringeth thee closer to thy liberation. With the birth of the Lovers, thou hast found a new road to greater power.>You have established the LOVERS Social Link with Belladonna!...Hoo boy.After that, you take a very long, very cold shower and go to bed.>Friday, 4/22, Before ClassYou walk up to the school gates to see Momoko leaning against the wall. "Hey, Red, I wanna talk to you for a sec." she says.>"Nice to see you're OK, Momoko-san.">"What's up?">"Can it wait 'til lunch? Class is in five minutes.">Write in
>>1721258>>1721351"What's up?" you ask. Momoko folds her arms. "I know I said it before in that mirror world, but I'm thankful you guys were willing to risk your necks to save me. Not a lot of people would've done that.">"It was the right thing to do.">"Momoko, you've gotta stop putting yourself down like this.">Write in
>>1721481>"It was the right thing to do.">"Momoko, you've gotta stop putting yourself down like this."
>>1721609>>1721638"It was the right thing to do," you say. "But you've got to stop putting yourself down like this." Momoko sighs. "Yeah, I know... It's just that I used to go around sayin' fuck you to people who wanted me to change and now I feel like shit 'cuz they were right all along.">"Hey, don't let others tell you how to change, do what you want to do.">"That's all in the past.">Write in
>>1721738>"That's all in the past."
>>1721738>"Hey, at least you're changing in your own way and not how others tell you. That's still a plus, right?"
>>1721793>>1721838"Hey, at least you're changing in your own way and not how others tell you. That's still a plus, right?"Momoko nods. "Yeah...Yeah, you're right. I gotta stop kicking myself and go my own pace.">?!I am thou...thou art I...Thou hast established a new bond. It bringeth thee closer to thy liberation. With the birth of Strength, thou hast found a new road to greater power.>You have established the STRENGTH Social Link with Momoko Ayabe!(Going to bed, then wrapping this up tomorrow)
After that chat with Momoko, you head to class."Who can tell me what year the Chernobyl disaster occured?">Roll 1d100 to answer
