Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/2794179/Character Sheet: https://pastebin.com/yZufnSBTYou stand at the treshhold of a sinister-looking cabin. According to a Shadow you interrogated, this is where Rebecca is being held by her Tormentor. Cel and Sage stand behind you as you try to figure out how to approach.>Sneak in>Go in guns blazing

>>2863839>73You practically will yourself to stop breathing as you slowly open the door. By some miracle, you actually manage to open the ancient door without a sound. You, Cel, and Sage cautiously slip through the door and enter the house. The interior is an absolute mess- parts of the ceiling have collapsed, with mold and moss growing in places exposed to the sky. Shattered glass and broken floorboards. However, there's something that catches your eye among the debris- claw marks. Long, deep, large claw marks. You turn around a corner to see a huge, hulking figure looming over a body lying prone on the floor.>Surprise Attack!>Hide!>Write in

>>2863909>80You charge the large figure and swing your axe right into its back. It lets out a roar that shakes the walls of the cabin. It turns to grab you and easily picks you off the ground with one hand. It slams you against the wall and pins you there, finally giving you a good look at its face. It looks like a yellow-eyed version of Lucas, but...something's off. He looks...wolf-like. His teeth are bared fangs, his face looks like its been stretched forward into a snout, and he has fur-like hair and sideburns. The Shadow of Lucas lets out a heavy breath that stinks of raw meat. "Who are you to interrupt my meal?" snarls the Tormentor. You look down to identify Rebecca as the prone figure. She's sobbing quietly as you're pinned to the wall. Clawed fingers grab your cheek and force you to look the Tormentor in the eyes. "ANSWER ME." growls the wolfman, looking like he's planning on ripping you limb from limb if you don't answer.>"Leave Rebecca alone, Lucas!">"Get your damn paws off me, you furry bastard!">Headbutt him>Write in
(Heads up, there are some dark storm clouds rolling in and i hear thunder, so I may need to duck out...there's been some really nasty weather these past few months)
>>2864003>>2864055You rear back your head and smash your forehead right into the Tormentor's half-man half-wolf snout. It lets out a noise that's like a mix between a whimper and a snarl as it drops you. The Tormentor stumbles back as Cel and Sage look on."REBECCA!" yells Cel. He rushes to the crying girl- only to get grabbed by the Tormentor. "You are not welcome here..." snarls Lucas. "My feast is to be uninterrupted..."Lucas strides over to you. You try to swing your axe at him, only for him to grab it and toss it aside. The axe sticks into a piece of lumber when it hits the wall. "I've gone through great lengths to keep my meal hidden away...who are you to trespass on my hunting ground?" huffs Lucas.>Summon a Persona to attack>Try to get Rebecca away from Lucas>Run away>Write in
>>2864086Summon Hansel, burn his fur the fuck up. Tell Cel to take Rebecca away.
>>2864086>Summon a Persona to attack>Try to get Rebecca away from LucasMultitasking! Have Cel get Rebecca out of here. Sage can back us up.
>>2864094>>2864097"HANSEL!"You summon the witch-killer to drive Lucas back. Your Persona swings his scythe at the wolfman. "Cel! Get her out of here!" you order. "Right!" says Cel, getting back up (Lucas dropped him when he came towards you) to rush for Rebecca. "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH MY PREY!" roars Lucas. He drives a fist into Hansel's gut, and you feel it like a phantom pain or a synchronized sensation. He leaps towards Cel, trying to pounce on him, but Cel's too fast, scooping Rebecca up in his arms and ducking out of the way."SHE'S MINE!" bellows Lucas. The walls tremble at his voice, dust knocked down from the rafters. "She's the only thing that keeps my hunger sated...I won't let you take her!""You're a monster." you say icily. In response, Lucas lets out a laugh that sends a chill down your spine- it sounds like wind blowing through a graveyard. "You think I'm a monster?" asks Lucas, glaring at you with glowing yellow eyes. He convulses, hunching over as a wet ripping sound fills the room. You worry that somehow Lucas grabbed Sage or Cel and tore into them, but the sound is coming from his own body. Lucas's mouth opens wider than any living animal has any right to as...something comes out. Flesh. Skin. Muscle. Fur. You watch in horror as Lucas turns himself inside out, literally puking up his insides as he transforms into a massive wolf-like beast. "HEH HEH HEH HEH..." laughs the wolf Lucas, his voice now coarse and bone-rattling deep. "I'VE NEVER BEEN ONE TO PLAY WITH MY FOOD, BUT I FEEL LIKE MAKING AN EXCEPTION FOR YOU PISSANTS..."(OST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxuMzm_RfzI)Rebecca squirms away from Cel's grip, staring in horror at the beast. You grit your teeth and run for your axe, yanking it free from the wall.>Phil: 87% HP, 90% SP>Cel: 96% HP, 80% SP>Sage: 87% HP, 80% SP>Attack >Skill (specify skill and target)>Switch Personas (specify Persona)>Write in

>>2864341>54Lucas dodges out of the way of your fire, snarling and snapping his fangs at Hansel.>Cel: Frei>Cel rolls: 44A cyan blast of nuclear power is dodged. "Why's this motherfucker so fast?" yells Cel.>Sage: Psi>Sage rolls: 9Scheherazade also fails to strike the Tormentor. Psychokinetic energy slams into the floor where Lucas once crouched as he leaps from floor to wall to ceiling, easily evading your Personas."PATHETIC." sneers the wolf. "YOU THINK YOU CAN KEEP MY LITTLE MORSEL FROM ME WITH THAT SORRY SHOW? NOBODY CAN TOUCH ME!"Rebecca flinches at Lucas's taunts. If you can reach out to her and convince her to stand up for herself, maybe she'll get a Persona.>Keep fighting Lucas>"Rebecca! You can't let Lucas treat you like a piece of meat! You gotta fight back!">"Rebecca, I know you're scared, but you can stand up to him!">"If you don't make a change, Lucas is going to keep hurting you. You can make that change!">Write in

>>2864582>"If you don't make a change, Lucas is going to keep hurting you. You can make that change!"
>>2864590>>2864614You look over to Rebecca. "If you don't make a change, Lucas is going to keep hurting you." you say as Lucas bounds around the room. "You can make that change!"Rebecca clenches one fist...But you don't get to see much of it because suddenly Lucas is on top of you, a paw pressed down on your face. "YOU HONESTLY THINK SHE CAN FIGHT BACK?" growls Lucas, his muzzle right in your ear, putrid breath on your face. "I BROKE HER YEARS AGO. SHE NEVER TOLD ANYONE WHAT I DID....AND SHE NEVER WILL.""Y-you're wrong..."You turn your head to see Rebecca standing up with a look of righteous fury in her eyes. "For four years, I let you use me like a toy without putting up a fight." says Rebecca. Her other fist clenches tight as bitter tears roll down her cheeks. "I'm not going to be some doll you can play with!" (Continued)
>>2864664Lucas turns his wolf like head, bestial eyes narrowing. "OH, THAT'S CUTE." he says condescendingly. "DON'T DELUDE YOURSELF... YOU'RE JUST A SCARED LITTLE GIRL.""I'm not scared of you anymore." retorts Rebecca as a key manifests in her hand. Seeing how you and the others summoned your Personas, she immediately feels for a keyhole and unlocks it with a sharp gasp of pain. Blue flame gives way to a female figure wearing a bodice, a long skirt, and a hooded cloak- all in a brilliant shade of red. Around the figure's waist is a thin belt made from a wolf's pelt. Under the hood, you see long, raven-black hair and a domino mask that conceals all but a confident grin. I am thou, and thou art I. I am Rotkapchen, the Walker of the darkened forest. No matter what menace the darkness hides, I shall always be at your side...Lucas snarls and pounces at the new Persona, only for Rotkapchen to pull a wicker picnic basket out of nowhere and open it in his direction. Big shards of ice shoot out like arrows, knocking the wolf back.(Continued)(Yep, Rebecca's Persona is Little Red Riding Hood. I bet y'all already saw that coming.)
>>2864696Cel whoops enthusiastically when Rebecca's Persona lays Lucas flat. "Alright, time to neuter this pooch!" he proclaims. >Phil: 87% HP, 85% SP>Cel: 96% HP, 75% SP>Sage: 87% HP, 75% SP>Rebecca: 100% HP, 100% SP>Attack >Skill (specify skill and target)>Switch Personas (specify Persona)>Write in

Rotkapchen tosses something from her basket, and suddenly you feel get that I-can-crush-a-mountain feeling of confidence and power. You nod vigorously- for the next 3 rounds, you will do more damage.Lucas roars, and tangible darkness fills the room...>Lucas: Maeiha>Roll 1d100, bo3

>>2869003See you in the morning boss!
>>2868790>61You just need to get in one good swing to kill the Shadow. You let out a roar as you charge the wolf with the axe held above your head. You aim for the neck and swing down, burying the axe head into the nape of the neck. Black sludge goes everywhere, even spackling your face. "DIE....HATE-HAAAATE YOU..." gasps Lucas as he begins dissolving to black sand."We need to go." you say immediately as you feel the world of Rebecca's Nightmare begin to tremble.(Cont)
>>2869679The escape from Rebecca's Nightmare is a frantic run through the woods as the ground falls into the abyss, swallowing up trees and rock formations. When you find the exit door, you charge through it. You come to in the hospital, with Cel slumped over on the floor.>Get out fast- less questions to answer if a doctor sees you>Check up on Rebecca

>>2869730>>2869784>>2869802You check on Rebecca, throwing caution to the wind. You watch her intently, worried if destroying the Tormentor wasn't enough. However, you see her start to stir. She opens one eye, then another. >"Welcome back to the land of the living.">"You alright?">Write in

>>2870574>Tell her you'll talk about it laterFor now she should rest. We should give her our number or something though.
>>2870953>>2871702"I can explain later." you say. You reach into your pocket and pull out a pen and a scrap of paper, jotting down your phone number. "Here's my number so you can call when you're out of here."You and Cel exit Rebecca's room. Cel stops halfway to his car. "Dude, wait." he says, looking worried. "Her family's gonna come by when they hear she's woke up." "So?" you ask."That means Lucas is gonna come." Cel says gravely. You stop dead in your tracks. "Oh, shit." you say, realizing your mistake. How would Rebecca react?"Yeah, 'oh shit' is right! Nightmares come from fear, what if seeing Lucas again puts her back in it?" asks Cel. You didn't even think of that.>"The Nightmare was destroyed.">"Fuck, we gotta go back!">"... Let's keep an eye on her, just in case.">Write in
>>2873339>"... Let's keep an eye on her, just in case."
>>2873339>"... Let's keep an eye on her, just in case."We lost the alibi since we left and she'll be getting swarmed now that she's back up. Plus isn't she one of the first people to wake back up from that sickness?
>>2873344>>2873451"Let's keep an eye on her, just in case..." you say cautiously. You and Cel hustle back into the hospital, lurking around the hallway. About an hour passes before Rebecca's family arrives....With Lucas in tow. You can practically hear Cel tense up. You get a little closer to the room. You dread seeing Rebecca break down upon seeing her abusive brother, but when you see her, she's regarding him with a cold, determined glare."Mom...Dad.... There's something I need to tell you." she says. "Lucas... Lucas had been...Has been...Touching me."She's pretty to the point, just shy of saying that four letter r word. You feel a bit cathartic when you see Lucas freeze up.Rebecca's father speaks, his voice shaking: "What do you mean?"Rebecca clenches her fists. "When I was little...He-he would put his hand between my...."You feel like the hallway just got five degrees colder. "Is this true, Lucas?" the father asks darkly. Lucas snarls. "You fucking bitch, what bullshit are you-"Rebecca's father grabs Lucas by the throat and slams him against the wall. "You open your mouth one more time," snarls Rebecca's dad. "With God as my witness, I swear I will cave your skull in with a bedpan."There's a scuffle. You duck back as security is called. Soon, Rebecca's father is calling the police as Rebecca cries into her mother's arms, relieved that she no longer has to hide the secret.(Gonna continue tomorrow)
(Oh jesus sorry guys. I slept in, had a brunch that turned into a prolonged family visit, and realized I've got assignments to finish. I'm gonna continue this tomorrow, probably in the afternoon.
