>>3038358God the face punching is so close I can SMELL it. Let's start this thing.
>>3038358>Kak jobbing timeas is tradition
>>3038358"This is how Heaven's Door works. Reading about your life and experiences will offer me realistic ideas, it is all written on your innards as if I've experienced it myself, nothing is omitted like if I were to ask you personally. It's the absolute truth!" Rohan began to delve into Kakyoin's life."Let's see here... Kakyoi Noriaki, born in July of 1971, 28 years old, currently working as a video game programmer and producer, since you were passionate about your hobby, you decided to work on the field to bring happiness for people like yourself, nerdy kids and lonely men with no visible goals in life. Boring story, but effective.The reason you felt very alone throughout a great part of your childhood and teenage years was due to your... STAND ABILITY!?" Rohan screamed in consternation. "Hierophant Green... It was because of your Stand that you were able to travel to Egypt and meet... Amazing, you've already had a bright future upon you, but everything from 1988 onwards is an absolute masterpiece! Star Platinum, The World, Silver Chariot, The Fool, Magician's Red, et cetera, et cetera! Never in my life have I read so many bizarre adventures in a single lifetime, this is a decade's worth of material for my manga!""And what do you plan on doing with all that information?""Oh, Kakyoin... You'll be very useful to me in the following weeks..." Rohan ripped out a page off Kakyoin's face."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" Kakyoin wailed in agony as the pain from the manga page being taken felt like he was forcefully tearing a layer off his muscle tissue"Why are you screaming, Kakyoin? I thought being a fellow with a creative mind such as yourself should understand my reasons for wanting to be realistic in my worldbuilding and with portraying my characters. Do you have a better alternative to propose?!" Rohan ripped another page off Kakyoin's face, this time staining the following pages with drops of blood."AAAAAAAARGH!""I guess not... Fufufufu...""If there's one thing I despise more than cocky, egotistical wastes of air like you, are plagiarists!" Kakyoin stumbles to his feet, biting his lower lip to take focus away from the wound in his forehead. "You are but a stain in your industry, I won't hesitate to get rid of scum like you! HIEROPHANT GREEN!""Oh no, what are you going to do with your Stand now? Let me guess, shoot me with your emerald splash!" The artist mocked the Hierophant's shallow attempt of a threatening aura."How did you know that--""Page 17: 'Despite being with my Hierophant since birth, I have to admit I dont have a lot of strategies for him when it comes to fighting by myself. Either I try to snipe the enemy down with my signature Emerald Splash, overwhelm them with my uncoiled Stand, or possess them by entering their bodies. I honestly have no idea how I got this far given my track record, it either came down to my friends helping me or straight up luck to survive Egypt."
>>3038399"You bastard...""Bah, I have no room for insecure manchilds in my manga, however since you were so generous as to offer me your memories, you will be eternalized as Pink Dark Boy's butt monkey. A pathetic comic relief character that no one admits to liking out loud, You'll be hated for being useless and bringing the story down, just like in your actual life.""YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS!""Will I? Go ahead then, Kakyoin! Surprise me with something you haven't done before, if you even have enough brain matter to think of new attacks. Either way, you already lost this battle!" Rohan invites him for a free move, not caring about defending himself.>Stick with the usual moves, he's up to something!>Emerald Splash around the house, maybe you can make the roof fall on him.>Aim an attack at his body of work.>Try to escape by jumping from the window.>Propel your stand to carry you down the stairs.>Something else
>>3038402>Emerald Splash around the house, maybe you can make the roof fall on him.But while Hierophant is Emerald Splashing indiscriminately>Physically rush Rohan and try to punch himBecause only WE can call Kak a jobber damn it!This plan is likely going to fail, but maybe all the communtion caused by the emerald splashes will catch the attention of someone.
>>3038402>>3038407this -let Kak go all street fighter on this jerks ass
>>3038402>Emerald Splash around the house, maybe you can make the roof fall on him.

>>3038455"Emerald Splash! Kakyoin in point blank, range straight at Rohan's torso, However the flock of emeralds would defy the laws of physics by curve balling Rohan's body as they impacted the bookshelf behind him, missing his target altogether."You're too predictable, Kakyoin. Even if I didn't read your mind, your stale thought process is exactly what makes you lose a fight against people who know how Hierophant Green works.""B-But I aimed at him! Rohan was standing still! How did I miss?" Kakyoin decimated the wall behind him with repeated barrages, but it didn't do much other than destroy the mangaka's workplace."Hey hey hey hey! I just bought this house, I would appreciate if you let me explain what was happening before tearing down my walls!" Rohan brought a fountain pen from his unscathed table, sending the latest installment of Pink Dark Boy down the fax machine."I am sorry to inform you Kakyoin, I have installed a safety lock on your Stand that will keep you from resisting.""What are you talking about?" Kakyoin put his fists up his chin, raising his eyebrow at the cocky illustrator's allegation."I have written in your forehead while I ripped the pages off your body." To Kakyoin's horror, Rohan lifted the page above Kakyoin's eyes, where he read the message that should determine the outcome of the fight.'I CANNOT HARM ROHAN KISHIBE.'"Not only can Heaven's Door read your memories and habits, writing on top of your pages will implant orders you cannot disobey! You will never be able to defeat me now!""That won't stop me from trying! Kakyoin attempted to tackle Rohan down the floor, firing an array of Emerald Splashes throughout the entire house, but not a single one of them managed to even scrape the writer."Didn't you hear what I was saying? You cant hurt me in this form! And you're made of paper! Using your body to overpower me is just being desperate." Kakyoin's arms folded back into his body like a rolled journal neatly packaged into a paperboy's bicycle."Quit your struggling and join my cause, Kakyoin. I'm already filthy rich, but I don't do any of my work for fame or money, but before having my Stand I went out all day looking for personal experiences to adapt into my manuscripts. I write my manga simply for the joy of finishing my art, however that feeling soon fades back as the dread of losing readers and writer's block crawls back into my mind. It has been that way since I was 16. But now! Now that I was struck my a magic arrow and was granted Heaven's Door, I can negate all of that with my backup plans!""You're sick in the head, Rohan. I am glad to say we are different in the way we create our material.""Whatever, you have too many pages to work on, so I'll write on you to keep visiting my house, you'll likely die eventually by running out of pages, but being immortalized in my comics will be a respectful parting gift..."*CREEEEEEEEEEEAK*"What was that noise?"
>>3038559https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9TpLV6A580Rohan stared up into the ceiling to see several wooden planks and brick blocks falling down on him."And who told you I was aiming at you?" Kakyoin slithered out of the rubble with his paper body, flinging himself down the stairs with Hierophant Green. "I technically did not harm you by shooting the house, the roof just happened to fall on you because of my Emerald Splash! That's something you could have avoided by yourself.""But I was too busy laughing at you for not being able to damage my physically--" Rohan ceased his speech, noticing how he failed to miss how Kakyoin's assault wasn't an offensive maneuver, but rather a means of distraction."I need... To... Get out of Heaven's Door's range!" Kakyoin fell to the ground as even Hierophant Green was struck by Rohan's Stand, only being inches away from the front door.With Josuke and Jolyne being on Rohan's law, counting them in before Rohan could get up would save the programmer from his clutches."Kak, what happened? I heard a noise upstairs!" Josuke and Jolyne wre promptly ready to assist Kakyoin, but Heaven's Door ceased him from telling the truth."Uh... Nothing, nothing at all! Why don't we go back to Jotaro's house?" Kakyoin said the exact opposite of what he intended, instantly realized Rohan also likely wrote something to prevent him from calling back up."Are you sure? I don't see any wounds on you, but what about Rohan?" Jolyne informed you the bleeding from Rohan tearing at your body has been healed, along with any traces of a fight.Shit, there's gotta be another way to get them inside...>Gesture them to go upstairs anyway.>Change your tone to sarcasm.>Say it's opposite day.>Write-in.
>>3038586>>Change your tone to sarcasm.
>>3038559>>Change your tone to sarcasm.
>>3038586>Change your tone to sarcasm.>Gesture them to go upstairs anyway.Can Kak unspool Hierophant and use it to make an SOS or something? Then it's technically not KAK who's telling Josuke and Jolyne that something is wrong.Hopefully gestures + the strangeness of him beign sarcastic will let them know that something is up.Also Rohan's theme is GREATO
>>3038612Ah by making an SOS I literally mean him making the letters SOS with Hierophant, maybe coupled with an arrow pointing upstairs or something.
>>3038612DC's 35 for this one, it shouldn't be difficult even with Kakyoin's mediocre social skillsRoll!

>>3038654>>3038655>>3038660The trick to pass DC's really is sarcasm, huh?

>>3038688huh, i am almost sad that i won't see this critfail
"ROHAN is COMPLETELY safe upstairs, IN NO HARMS WAY WHATSOEVER, we were just HAVING FUN sharing ideas about our work, NOTHING out of the ordinary. He is TOTALLY not a Stand user!" Kakyoin was sweating bullets, hoping that if he couldn't ask for help in conventional means, the art of sarcasm would bring the truth to light.Jolyne was puzzled on why Kakyoin was emphasyzing several words in his sentence, but being too young to understand how sarcasm worked, the massage went through her head."Ok, let's go back to Papa's.""Folks, I don't think you understand what I'm saying here. Rohan Kishibe is NOT a Stand user." He panicked."Yeah, I got it. He's not a Stand User.""HE'S *[(NOT)]* A STAND USER!""I know!""HESNOTASTANDUSER"""I KNOW!""Jolyne, I think Kakyoin wants to show me something." Josuke points at Hierophant Green, forming the Kanji for 'help' behing him with an arrow pointing inside Rohan's house. "Do you mind waiting outside?""What did he say? I thought we were all hearing the same thing..." A flustred Jolyne crossed her arms as Josuke closed the door behind her, feeling stupid for not communicating in their secret language."Alright Kakyoin, what did you want to-- KAKYOIN!" Josuke watched as Heaven's Door took effect on Kakyoin's body once more, rendering him unable to walk as the lost of weight turned him into a glorified notebook."Kak...Yoin...!!" Rohan Kishibe stumbled down to the living room, angrily limping his way to the injured man before spotting Josuke."The hell did you two do here!?" Josuke could barely grasp his shock."It's Heaven's Door! He can control people remotely by turning them into paper and writing on them!" With Kakyoin's safety lock disabled, he could properly explain past events."Sounds like an easy problem to avoid...""Not if I spice things up..." Rohan wrote on a sheet of paper with outline of Kak's face on it, transfering it directly to Kakyoin's skin.'IF JOSUKE DOESN'T APPROACH ROHAN IMMEDIATELY, I WILL SHOOT MYSELF TO DEATH WITH HIEROPHANT GREEN'"What? He can't possibly have these sorts of powers--" Josuke briefly doubted Heaven's door before seeing Kakyoin's Stand aiming his green rocks inside Kakyoin's mouth."Don't do it Josuke, That's what he wants!" Kakyoin told him to refuse, but Rohan was sure to shut him up with a few new sentences."Sorry Kakyoin, I have no choice.">Approach Rohan.>Approach Rohan, but look away.>Approach Rohan, but close your eyes.>Approach Rohan, backwards.
>>3038788>>Approach Rohan, but look away.hands behind our back and sign to them to restrain heirophant green
>>3038788>Approach rohan. At full speed, and have Crazy Diamond punch him in his smug mouth. He never specified you couldn't do that, right?
>>3038788>Approach Rohan, but close your eyesIf Josuke were more self aware, he might ask Rohan what he thinks off his hair too.
>>3038799we still can't harm him
>>3038799>>3038788Yep this. Anyone who messes with Josuke's friends get no sympathy.Also I think the close eyes options are a bit TOO meta because Kak didn't actually say WHAT caused him to come under Heaven's Door's control in the first place (bad kak!)>>3038801The 'can't harm rohan' command is on kak only right now. Josuke isn't under heaven's door thumb yet.
>>3038814>"Don't do it Josuke, That's what he wants!" Kakyoin told him to refuse, but Rohan was sure to shut him up with a few new sentences.Rohan is writing commands on Kakyoin and ready to bust out his Stand. It's a trap either way
>>3038788>Approach Rohan but close your eyesRemember Koichi guys, let's play it safe in hostage negotiations
>>3038788>>Approach Rohan, but close your eyes.
>>3038831>>3038788Fair enough. Then I gotta change my vote to >Approach Rohan but close your eyesIf only because as much as I WANT to punch his smug face in like >>3038843 said charging him straight up will probably lead to bad things for kak....Maybe we could approach him eyes closed, but the moment we're in range sucker punch him with crazy diamond?
>>3038843>>3038858>>3038864Alright, fair enough.Roll please!

>>3038874>>3038877>>3038879"Alright, what the hell do you want with me, Rohan-- Ugh!" With a weary Josuke approaching, Rohan didn't waste time when it came to showing the pompadour boy the manuscript, but as the relfex coming from Kakyoin's advice to avoid anything paper related. He adverted his gaze to the inside of his eyes."Oh, so you're not opening them back? An immature move, but it might just work..." Rohan took great joy in experimenting different methods of opening Josuke's eyes."Come on, can't you release your eyelids just a tad bit? You know you want to read it!" Rohan stretched out Josuke's eyelids with his fingers, but Josuke still wouldn't budge."You know no one's leaving this place until you open your eyes, right? Come on!" Rohan even tried to get a reaction from Josuke by giving him a wet willy, but aside from cringing andgrunting, The resiliant Josuke stood in place."You're no fun, Josuke.... I've run out of ideas...Kakyoin!""What, me?" The disabled Kakyoin scratched his head."I didn't read the page on Josuke. If there's a way to trigger a strong enough emotion to make Josuke open his eyes, surely you must know it.""I can hear you, you know?" Josuke muttered."Shut up!" Rohan gave him another wet willy to stay out of the conversation. "Come on, Kakyoin! And remember: No lying..."To be fair, Kakyoin didn't interact much with Josuke, but he had a few ideas...Bingo!>Josuke is afraid of turtles.>Josuke loves music.>Josuke gets reeeeeeally angry if you make fun of his hair.
>>3038949>Josuke gets reeeeeeally angry if you make fun of his hair.hee hee

>>3038969I'm more interested in what he would have done if we said Josuke likes music - did we miss out on the chance to see Rohan dropping some sick beats?

I wouldn't recommend it though, he'll get so furious he'll want to break down the house." Kakyoin proposed, mastering the sarcasm in his tone."Really? Still, he'll need to open his eyes to know who he's hitting. How about this: Hey Josuke! Your hairstyle is 10 years out of date, get with the times!"The usual carefree, corny Josuke gave space to the irrationally angry monster that he turns when his hairdo's dissed, getting so furious he could even put up a fight against Josuke and Hitomi."He's screwed, isn't he?" Kakyoin said, noticing his attempt at concealing the truth failed."...WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY HAIR?" His eyes were side as ever, ignoring the danger and abandoning caution."You heard me, Josuke Higashikata. What's the point of using a hairstyle that doesn't even suit you? It looks atrocious! You should watch out when walking out the streets, maybe some stupid bird will mistake that turd you call hair for a nest." Rohan even tugged at his pompadour for good measure, pushing Josuke to the very edge."DORARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARA!" Crazy Diamond rushed his fists into Rohan's chin, but that's when the artist took the opportunity to flash him with Heaven's Door's manuscript."I won, Josuk--." Crazy Diamond tore a hole in the sheet of paper and smashed Rohan's face flat into his palm, as if Josuke didn't even see what he'd just done."DORARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARA" Stuck behind the staircase, Rohan could only take the blows as the berserk Josuke lashed out in rage, sending him to the ceiling with a single uppercut from his own hands, where he dangled from the first floor like a chandelier."WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU RUN OFF TO, COWARD!? SHOW YOURSELF!" Despite supposedly seeing where Rohan flew off to, Josuke just kept punching the walls and breaking the furniture around, failing to go anywhere near the mangaka's direction.>Josuke, he's right there.>Hold him off.
>>3039127>Hold him off.Josuke stop! Kak can't make Pink Dark Boy: The Game if Rohan dies before giving him the rights!

"Calm down Josuke, he's already knocked out." Kakyoin tapped on Josuke's shoulder, but not only was Josuke blind with rage, he was also deafened by it."I found you, Rohan! You're in for the beating of your life! DORARARARARARARARARARARARA!""WAIT, JOSUKE! I'M NOT--" Whatever Kakyoin was about to escape from Josuke's fury was muffled by his DORA's, with Crazy Diamond slowing down his punches as Josuke's anger started to meddle out."K...Kakyoin-san! I'm sorry! I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" Josuke kneeled down at his senior and restored him to treat the wounds, as if he never got pummeled a new hole in the first place."Grr... Why do you get so angry when people talk bad about your hair, anyway?" Kakyoin stands up with Crazy Diamond's help, still dizzy from the beating."Do you promise not telling anyone about it...?" Josuke recomposed himself, sounding uneasy about sharing such a personal story with Kakyoin."Sure, you can trust me." Josuke breathed deeply and leaned down at the partially destroyed Kishibe household."The date is September, 1988. A young boy in Morioh suddenly turns ill from a fever during Fall season. His fever was almost over 40°C and for the rest of the month, they weren't even able to tell if the 4 year old kid would survive the unknown disease. His mother, desperate to save him, decided to take him to S. City, as the local hospitals were not able to treat him, panicking as the boy fainted on her car, she went offroads to get a quick shortcut. A terrible idea, as it was a rainy day and the car got stuck in the mud not long after the fact. It was the strongest rainstorm in Morioh since 18 years, no cars used to pass there and no payphones were nearby. The mother could only sob in despair as the young Josuke's life faded away.""Young Josuke?""But that's when a miracle happened! Out of nowhere. A stranger wearing a student's uniform and a black pompadour rushed to the car, his clothes appeared to be torn off, and mud was covering a large part of his face. Still, he paid no mind as he uttered the following words to kid's mother."'Your son is sick, right? I'll help you get the car going.''There, I managed to push it out of the mud, now hit the gas. Don't stop or else your tires will get stuck again.'"Josuke..." Kakyoin contemplated on telling Josuke who caused him that sudden sickness in the fall of 1988, but kept hearing the story after realizing it wasn't over.
>>3039441"I never found out who he was, but since I never got to thank him, I just copied his hairstyle to keep my hero's legacy alive. It's why I always give my all to help others and find the most peaceful solution to conflicts. Insulting my hair is not a matter of disrespecting me, but everything me and my childhood hero stood for."Color me surprised, Josuke... I wasn't expecting your reasoning to be so deep. Now it all makes sense!""Even then, mistaking you for Rohan was a bit uncalled for, what do you say? Do you want to hit the arcade this weekend to make things up? It's on the house!" Josuke offered a handhsake."...Of course." Kakyoin returned the gesture with one hand, but punched Josuke's nose with all of his might with the other one!"UGH!""You can ask Jolyne to fix that one.""Y-Yeah... I guess we're even..." Josuke wipes the blood off his nose with his blazer."Wh-What about me....?" Rohan falls back to the ground, barely awake."Nah, you got what you deserve, have fun on your broken house!" Crazy Diamond waved his finger at Rohan, finally exiting his house and going back to Morioh Hotel.>Pink Dark Boy went into a month long hiatus for the first time in it's weekly publication, giving Rohan enough room to recover the rocky start with his new frenemies: Kakyoin Noriaki and Josuke Higashikata.>To be continued...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlUKcNNmywk
>>3039448Thanks for running Dust! Shame Kak couldn't stick the landing on this fight, but at least after befriending (?) Rohan he's one step closer to Pink Dark Boy: The GameIs there going to be a session tomorrow?
>>3039467Yes we are, the song at the end there should give you a hint on who we're facing next.
>>3039448Thanks for the session, Dust! Though I am sad that Rohan was not fated to become chums with Koichi in this iteration of the JoJoverse, I look forward to Kak and Rohan trying to outsmug each other.
OPEN THE GAME!Are you all ready?
>>3041401Game Status: Opening
May 21st, 1999.As promised, Josuke and Kakyoin were enjoying a peaceful meetup at the local arcade store, playing a healthy session of air hockey."9-4 Josuke, give up! You're not winning this.""And lose 1,000 yen because I chickened out? Nuh-uh! Not happening!" Josuke blocked the goal with his striker, predicting Kakyoin's offensive maneuver with the hockey puck.The disk, instead of being deflected back at Kak, went out of the table and into the arcade machine behind him, severing the power outlet that turned the game on."Oops, my bad! I'll go fetch the puck and fix the thing while I'm at it." The student crouches down to check the power outlet, noticing the amount of sparks flowing out the outlet."I wouldn't touch me if I was you, Josuke Higashikata!" Despite missing it's power source, a voice came out of the Time Crisis 2 machine, where a yellow, alien-like Stand jumped out of the screen to chastise Josuke."What the hell...?""It's that Stand Hitomi told us about, Red Hot Chili Pepper!" Kakyoin recognized the menacing figure stand against him."Correct, Kakyoin! Likewise, it seems like you and Jotaro's buddies haven't listened to my advice! You were all supposed to leave Morioh! Yet here you are, playing ice hockey with a kid half your age!""And why are you here?" Josuke clenched his fist."Why wouldn't I be? I've visited all of you quite a few times now. Of course you wouldn't notice you were being spied on, since I can easily morph into pure electricity and all." Chili Pepper bragged about having mastered his Stand in a couple weeks."I meant why you decided to show up now? When you could have stayed hidden in the shadows like the coward you are?""You don't think you can take us on, do you?" Kakyoin brings out his Stand, with Josuke following his moves."Take you on? I would never be so crude. I am here to kill you both. Quick and painlessly.">You're joking, right?>Fine, come on!>Break the arcade machine.>Look for a power switch.>Feed his ego and attack while he's boasting.>Something else.

>>3041552>>3041611>>3041618"Kak, go look for a power switch, I'll deal with cocky bastard." Josuke commanded Kakyoin to look around the arcade."Pft! As if you could even find one in time before I fried you two to death. Jotaro's Star Platinum is the only Stand user who could pose a threat to me, and that's just because he can stop time. So what better way to test my strength than to put up a fight with it's younger counterpart?""Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it..." Josuke cracked his knuckles."I'm not pulling your leg here, Josuke. Come on! I'm waiting for you to hit me with that barebones Stand of yours. Do it! Compared to Chili Pepper, your punches will feel more like a kid pinching my nose!""In your dreams, asshole!" A swift 'DORA!' from Crazy Diamond twisted the electric monster into the ground, where he was vulnerable for a free beating."He's fast... I was too arrogant and underestimated him!""Damn right you did! And keep in mind that I'm not even the strongest Stand user in Morioh! DORARARARARARARA-- ACK!"Quickly growing tired of Josuke having the upper hand, Chili Pepper's energy waves increased by absorbing electricity from the nearby cabins, headbutting Josuke to the other end of the establishment."On the contrary, Josuke. You only managed to PISS ME OFF!" Standing on top of Crazy Diamond,the enemy electrocuted Josuke with the entire arcade's voltage, attempting to fry him alive."AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!" Tried as he might, Josuke's attempts at escaping only turned into mere convulsions, which if it weren't for Kakyoin finding a power switch and shutting the place down, Josuke would soon be dead."Wh-What?""DORA!"Chili had no time to react as he got punched into the wall, with his power down and no chance of backup, he used the remainder of his energy to slide into the power outage and disappearing into the electricity poles."Damn! He got away!" Kakyoin snapped his fingers."Thanks for the save, man..." Josuke combed his hair back, as it was burnt by the attack."Anytime,! We better report this to Jotaro, though. Hitomi and him were looking for clues on him for a while now..." Kakyoin invited Josuke for a ride in his car, where the two would meet with the married couple.
>>3041693A few hours later..."For the last time, Mr. Joestar! We're not inviting you to Morioh! It's not safe here!" Hitomi chastised over the cell phone."How unsafe are we talking about?""'Having to buy a cell phone so we don't get electrocuted when answering the phone' levels of unsafe!""Aw, but I thought Josuke would be happy if he knew who his father was... I feel like I owe him an explanation" Joseph sounded legitimately disappointed in not meeting his son."This is not the time for that, Mr. Joestar! We're having a hard time finding Chili Pepper as it is, we can't afford to look out for more people--""Hitomi, is that the old man again?" Jotaro turned the newspapers as he approached his wife."Yeah, can you have a word with him? Maybe you can convince him to lay off on visiting in these dire situations.""I was actually thinking on bringing him here. Maybe Hermit Purple can help us find Chili Pepper." Jotaro proposed to her disbelief."He's pushing 80, Jotaro! You saw him when we went to New York! He might still have the same brash personality, but he can't even walk without a cane anymore! Stand over usage could lead to his death, let alone fighting a Stand user!""I'm still on the line you know...""Your Hamon isn't what it used to be, so you can't pinpoint a moving target like Chili Pepper in a big city like Morioh, and Avdol's flame detector is even worse in that regard. We're out of alternatives.""Yeah, you tell her Jotaro!""Quiet, Old man. I'm doing this out of pure necessity. I didn't forget about you cheating on Suzi!"Hitomi can't help but facepalm at the idea, but Jotaro does present a good argument. Even if you can find Chili Pepper's user, it'll take a lot longer than simply asking for Hermit Purple's help, but since Joseph could drop dead at any moment if he finds an enemy...>*Sigh* Fine, bring him in.>No, we can deal with this on our own.
Also, just a reminder for those Ultimate Hitomi planners still reading:Okyasu's dad is a living example of Vampire/Human tissue fusion that seems to be nearly invulnerable to lasting harm by Stands or other conventional means! It might be worth getting a tissue sample from him and researching, even if it isn't being used to piece together a plan to become an Ultimate Life Form!
>>3041727>*Sigh* Fine, bring him in.As much as I am loathe to risk Joseph, we stand to lose a lot more if RHCP is free to ambush us at will. He also might be able to better withstand using Hermit Purple if he has another Hamon user to provide some support if he attempts to scry.
>>3041727>*Sigh* Fine, bring him in.Looking ahead there's soon gonna be a guy well be very interested in tracking down
>>3041727>Sigh* Fine, bring him in.>>3041728That would probably be worth investigating, plus, if we find out how it works, we could possibly make Okuyasu's dad better.
>>3041743>>3041800>>3041804"Fine... I guess Mr. Joestar's more used to tracking down people than any of us combined..." Hitomi sighed, feeling like she's gambling an old man's life for the sake of an arrow."Good, cause I'll be showing up there tomorrow morning!""Yeah, right. Just say when you're ready to the Foundation and then-- TOMORROW MORNING!? OH MY GOD!""Good grief... How do you even plan on getting here that fast?""I was visiting Holly over here in Japan. A boat ride over to Morioh shouldn't take longer than 8 hours if I leave at night. Why do you think I was asking you two for 3 days straight if I could show up or not?" Joseph informed."You can't be serious... Ok, just make sure to get one from the Speedwagon Foundation, ok?""Sure, Public transports are a bit detrimental to my back. Plus who knows what creep might be coming in with me?" Joseph agreed."We'll be in the pier around noon. Don't be late." Jotaro hung up the phone."Alright, we better plan this out before things turn sour. We have enough Stand users to beat Chili Pepper and protect the Old Man at the same time, it's only a matter of who's more capable for the job." Jotaro informed."You're right, with so many Stand users, overwhelming him should be easy, but that also comes with putting too many people at risk. Plus someone needs to take care of Jolyne." You dial up the phone, thinking of all the possible contacts that would fit the task.>Pick a team of 3 and a person to take care of Jolyne.>Kakyoin.>Avdol.>Josuke.>Okuyasu.>Yukako.>Hazamada.>Rohan.>Actually, maybe Jolyne would be safer if she tagged along.
>>3041916To clarify, is the team of 3 the beating team or the defense?
>>3041946Hitomi and Jotaro might already count for the beating team, if you want to balance things out picking 2 optimal Stands to help out Joseph and one in between the two categories.
>>3041916rohan for jolyne, I want to say. Not sure about who to send out.
>>3041916>JolyneI'd say Avdol or Kakyoin since they have a strong home ground advantage. Hierophant green can set up a lot of networking tendrils which would be great in a remote area without any nearby powerlines of any sort. Avdol's flames seem like they would also be a good defensive choice, though our earlier sparring match showed that a supercharged stand can bull through the flames without significant injury. As long as they're in a space where RHCP can't supercharge off of nearby electrical sources, both of these people would be nice for a defensive choice. Hazamada and Rohan might also be okay, but they both seem to require access to the actual Stand User to make good use of their abilities. RHCP is a very long-range stand. If RHCP went for Jolyne instead of Joseph, they might not be able to do much.>TeamJosuke for sure. Aside from that, I'm not really sure who'd be great for taking on a powerful CQC stand that can also conduct electricity. Okyasu maybe due to him being able to cut off electrical connections with the Hand.Yukako seems to be not well suited here since her Stand is attached to her body. Stand electricity seems like a bad combination here.Either Avdol and Kakyoin (whoever's not with Jolyne) could provide some nice overwatch, but they might need someone to cover them in case RHCP gets up close. Rohan and Hazamada could act as wildcards depending on where we deploy them. But as mentioned earlier, they may not be able to do much if RHCP confronts them, unless their powers work on Stands too.
>>3041953We can take our time since it's a bit of a slower day than yesterday, no rush
>>3041967avdol has his ability to locate stuff, so I dunno where to send him. Hitomi has that too, though. so it'd probably be better to seond them opposite ways...?
>>3041967>>3041951With that said, I think Josuke should be there to assist Jotaro/Hitomi. Star Platinum and KC are already a huge amount of power and versatility, especially if KC copies Star Platinum and also can act in timestop. But Josuke's ability to re-arrange matter is something that KC can't quite replicate.But then again, RHCP might not try such a brazen full-frontal attack since Hitomi and Jotaro are paired up. Might be better to send Josuke along with Kakyoin and Rohan to try and protect Joseph instead. If Rohan is cooperative, he could write symbols where RHCP is likely to emerge and try to take control of RHCP that way. If Josuke goes with the Joseph group, then Okyasu might be able to provide some support for Hitomi/Jotaro.>>3041998It doesn't do well in large cities, as Jotaro said before. It might be better to have him guarding Jolyne. He can also do some destruction of underground lines/wires with Crossfire Hurricane, as he was able to burrow with it when fighting against Polnareff in canon Part 3.
>>3042017Yeah, avdol is starting to seem like a solid choice as a guard. Jolyne's stand also has a chance of catchin him too, I'd think, if he attacks at home. hmmm... could we use hazamada to trick him? If he disguises as jotaro and stays at home, he'd be more inclided to be out and about. I dunno, just tossing darts at a wall right now.
>>3041916>JolyneRohan for sure... and the other kids if they can make it so she has some faces she knowns too (Yukako + Hazamanda)? Rohan can write down I'm immune to electrocution on everyone so they only have to worry about beating down the physical stand. >JosephJosuke for sureI'm also thinking Oku because being able to close large amounts of distance might be a boon. Kak should be holing himself up somewhere with no current whatsoever cos he's currently top of chillypepper's shitlist.
>>3042043>Kak should be holing himself up somewhere with no current whatsoever cos he's currently top of chillypepper's shitlist.Might want to pair him with Josuke then. It's been shown that he can reverse RHCP's ability to pull people into power lines. Crazy Diamond is also a pretty nice bodyguard stand.
>>3042043Though I'm happy with switching Oku for Avdol if the votes swing that way. Avdol does have the benefit of being a ranged attacker.
>>3042059AH fair enough>>3041916Okay my very very final vote is>JolyneRohan due to him being able to no sell electrocution with Heavens Door>JosephJosukeKakBecause now thst I think about it josuke+hitomi+Jotaro are sorely lacking in ranged attacks (and fragmenting overdrive is less reliable than emerald splash).
>>3041967>>3042017>>3042043>>3042059>>3042061>>3042071Alright, bringing all the votes together the team should look something like this.Team Stone Free:>Rohan>Avdol>Yukako>HazamadaTeam Hermit Purple:>Kakyoin>Jotaro>Josuke>Hitomi>OkuyasuSeems pretty evenly split, writing.
>>3042098yup, seems good
>>3042098We definitely should have hazamada copy jotaro's appearance so it seems like Jotaro is in two places at once. Fuck with RHCP a bit.
Going into a deserted area, Hitomi dialed up each and every person who could help her with either taking care of Jolyne, and the elderly british man."Taking care of Jolyne, huh? Well, at least Kakyoin and Josuke won't be around. I can do it." Rohan complied out of respect for Hitomi and her family, and so did Hazamada, Yukako and Avdol."I literally live next door to you and Jotaro, what kind of friend would I be if I declined?""WHO THE HELL IS PLANNING ON HURTING JOLYNE! I'LL STRANGLE THAT LITTLE SHIT!""Oooh! I'll be sure to think of something Surface can do to distract Chili Pepper!"As for the team focused on aiding Joseph..."Huh, if Polnareff wasn't so busy with his family we'd be able to have the full team here. Shame about Mr. Joestar's condition, though. Time hasn't been nice to him.""I'm finally going to see Joseph, huh? I've grown up being used to only having a single parent, now that I'm finally meeting my 'dad' it's going to be very awkward.""I know how it feels like to not have a dad... Maybe If I'm around Josuke won't be feeling so bad!"On the following day, the gang arrived at the pier a good two hours before Joseph's arrival. Feeling he would soon come to spy on the Hotel due to yesterday's scuffle with Kakyoin and Josuke, the second team would be there to impede RHCP from attacking, as well as confusing him for not seeing anyone he would be expecting aside Jolyne.However, Hitomi made a fatal mistake."Hey, looks like Hitomi forgot her phone here, and it's uncharged." Hazamada plugged the cell phone on the power outlet, where the past calls were recorded, signaling Joseph's location."YOU IDIOT!" Rohan yanked the midget off the charger, but it was already too late, as Chili Pepper was already peeping on them."Well well well, what do we have here? I noticed Hitomi and Jotaro were up to something, but I couldn't figure out what since she wasn't using a regular phone, maybe seeing the register on these calls might give me a hint!" The yellow bastard grinned after grabbing the phone.>Burn the cell phone with Magician's Red.>Protect everyone from the electric current with Heaven's Door.>Knock the phone out of RHCP's Hands with Jolyne.>Scare/Distract him into thinkin Jotaro's here with Surface.>Shut down the power source.
>>3042203Okay Rohan needs to >Protect everyone from the electric current with Heaven's Door.Everyone else needs to try to>Shut down the power source.
>>3042203burning might take too long... best to try the power source
>>3042203>Protect everyone from the electric current with Heaven's Door.While everyone else cuts the power and/or smashes the cell phone like>>3042215 suggests. Physical contact is a no go until Rohan gives us resist electricity so Jolyne is out, and he's already seen its Hazamanda and not Jotaro.
>>3042203>>Protect everyone from the electric current with Heaven's Door.
>>3042215>>3042228>>3042229>>3042236A first roll for Rohan!Let's treat him with respect in the form of good rolls, shall we?

Oh shit, what did I mi- >>3042266 Holy mother of author self-inserts!
>>3042266>>3042267https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auYMuchUa_Y"HEAVEN'S DOOR!" Instead of forcing everyone to look at his manuscripts, Rohan simply manifested a Stand of his own, resembling the protagonist of his story: Pink Dark Boy."I am glad to disappoint you, Chili Pepper! The only way you're getting out of here is without any info!" Rohan knocked everyone into the ground as their insides were transformed into manga, scribbling into the air as the ink from his pens were splashed on his biographies."What have you done to us, Rohan-sensei?" Hazamada shrieked, thinking he was setting them up for death due to disabling their bodies."Rest assured, Hazamada! I'm not a goody two shoes by any stretch of the imagination. Hell, if this thing was only after Josuke, I'd even lead him the way, but given all that's at stake, I'd even give him a kiss if it meant taking down this simpleton!""You got a big mouth, Rohan! But your Stand is utterly useless! I'll rip that dumb look right off your face!" Chili Pepper lunged at Rohan at light speed, but hit the wall behind the artist as the entire group formed a meat shield around him."I was thinking of making everyone immune to electricity. But since that would leave me vulnerable to attacks, I thought of an even better option to face you!" Rohan presented the writing to his foe.'If Chilli Pepper tries to attack Rohan, we will use our bodies to move him out of harm's way, no matter how fast he attacks, we will always move faster than Chilli Pepper.'"What? You can't just do that! How am I going to hit you know?" The Stand pushed itself to the very brink of it's speed, but it failed to hit the group as they automatically dodged the following blows with perfection."Oh, and you people can still control your Stands from here." Since Heaven's Door wasn't combat applicable, he relied on the others to beat some sense into Chilli Pepper."Love Deluxe!" Yukako's hair flocks pinned him to the wall where Stone Free took the cell phone out of the electric alien, leaving him free for Magician's Red and Surface's clobbering."I'll try not to burn your hair, Yukako!""This is for trying to kill my favorite mangaka, you freak!"After kicking, punching and stomping on Chili Pepper into submission, he tumbled down the power outlet, escaping the hotel in a cowardly retreat."You know what... Fuck you guys! I don't need you to find Jotaro! I'll look for him myself!" He spouted between his panting, being slurped by the socket."What a joke, we didn't een have to look for the power switch!" Rohan chuckles. "You people can take your hands off me now..."
>>3042418Rohan confirmed as a fucking genius
>>3042418>Rohan getting upgraded Heavens Door in his second appearanceAuthor insert too strong, pls nerfAlso Kak rolled a nat 1 yesterday and Rohan rolled a nat 100 today. Rohan obvs siphoned all of kak's good rolls along with his memories.
>>3042418*Ring Ring Ring Ring*"Hey there, It's Josuke--""Go away, Josuke! Put Kakyoin on the phone!" Rohan ordered!"...Hello?" Kakyoin confusedly answered the phone."I took care of Chili Pepper for you, he said he'd be searching for clues around the city.""Don't act as we didn't do all the work for you!" Yukako growled at him."Anyway, be on the lookout. We don't know how fast he can go around Morioh.""Ok, but why did you ask for me to hear you on the phone?" Kakyoin was intrigued about Rohan's 180° in terms of treating him."You have a great mind on your shoulders, Kakyoin. Smart people like us need to look out for each other. Tell me when you're done beating the crap out of Chili Pepper.""Since when did we became friends again?" Kakyoin grit his teeth, but he only heard the phone being hung up in response."Alright, looks like we'll be stuck here for a while. Be on the lookout, people!" Nevertheless, the Hierophant instructed the rest of the group on what to do, to which they idled by until the time came."I think I can see the boat!" Hitomi alerted."Man... Did we really have to wake up this early to look for Chili Pepper? Look at what a beautiful day we're having!" Okuyasu yawned. "I mean, the sun, the sea, the UAV drone going in that boat's direction."I know how you feel, pal." Josuke sympathized with his classmate. "We need to call everyone to hit the beach one day to enjoy the summer-- Wait, what was that last part?""Do you think Chili Pepper might be inside that drone's battery?" Okuyasu used his noggin. He just needs a power source, after all."We should check it out, but splitting up might not be a good idea.">Try to grab the drone with The Hand on land.>Rent and chase the drone.>Send Hierophant Green to reach Joseph's boat before the drone.
>>3042485>>Shoot down the drone with Emerald splash
>>3042485>Rent a speedboat and chase the drone*I start fucking up the proofreading when nighttime comes around
>>3042485I kinda want to see if we can snipe it with an overdrive, but our luck isn't to great with them. try using za hando, since if it fails all it'll do is grab air and not alert it. and if it doesn't grab it, alt least it can pull it closer. afterward we can try emerald splash.
>>3042485>>Try to grab the drone with The Hand on land.It's your time to shine Okuyasu.
>>3042485>>Try to grab the drone with The Hand on land.>Send Hierophant Green to reach Joseph's boat before the drone, alert the passengers!no reason not to try both
>>3042485>Have crazy diamond use its incredible strength to shoot the drone down with an object
>>3042485>Try to grab the drone with The Hand on land.>Send Hierophant Green to reach Joseph's boat before the drone, alert the passengers!Both is good.Also I'm really loving how Rohan treats the non-canon part 4 members>Grudgingly respects kak due to being bested in a battle of wits>Respects Hitomi and Jotaro due to seeing them being grade A badasses in Kak's memories.It's these little things which make the quest for me

>>3042518>>3042519>>3042521Oof, almost made it.That shoud slightly set him back though.
>>3042535https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yA_847kvmY"The Hand!" Okuyasu's Stand scraped the space time continuum, making the toy approach the team, however as soon as the drone noticed he was being set back, a few sparks of lighting set it at full speed, blasting after the boat and escaping The Hand's range."Bastard! It really is Chili Pepper inside that battery!" Okuyasu shouted."How are we supposed to get there before that thing?" Josuke asked, afraid of losing sleep over his father's death."...Jotaro, that boat is property of the Speedwagon Foundation, right?" Kakyoin readied his Hierophant."Yes, the only passengers there are staff and the old man's caretakers." Jotaro informed."The distance is a bit out of range for now, but in around 10 to 6 minutes it should be enough for a stretched out Hierophant Green to reach it.""We can go with your stand!" Hitomi charged up her Hamon, thinking she would be able to float above it like before, but her slack in training only left the water above her knees. "Ah, damn it! I just bout those pants!""I think I can balance myself on The Hand just fine! It's faster than looking for a speedboat! We can push you out of the water if you get tired, Hitomi-san!" Okuyasu jumps on his Stand's arms and tiptoes on Hierophant Green's uncoiled torso as it elongated towards the water."Great Idea! Let's get going!" Hitomi fist bumped the young Okuyasu for putting his brain to excellent use and parted ways to the sea, with Kakyoin's Stand sandwitched between The Hand and a Hamon charged Hitomi using him as a zipline."Tch! Josuke and Jotaro are left? Crap, you two were the ones I wanted to fight the least..." A panting Stand User popped out of the manhole cover, sporting Red Hot Chilli Pepper, a guitar and a toy plane with him."You!" Jotaro and Josuke turned to face the guitarist."Kakyoin's still here? Interesting, since he can't roll his stand back or else he'll risk Okuyasu and Hitomi drowning, you two are down 3 Stands... My UAV, Spitfire can reach Joseph's boat in 5 minutes, twice as fast as Hierophant Green. So if I beat you both under 4 minutes and sever Kakyoin in half, I might be able to win if I go all out.""You have a lot of nerve threatening to kill my wife straight to my face!" Jotaro summoned Star Platinum."My name is Akira Otoishi, 19 years old!" Akira Drew out Jotaro's voice with a guitar solo. "I'm tired of playing games with you people, especially after Rohan treated me for going easy on him, now I'll use all the energy in this city to kill you all!" The Guitar's notes escalated into a crescendo as RHCP stole all of Morioh's electricity, sparking into a great bolt of explosions as he finished charging his Stand to full power."Oh, yeah!...">To be continued...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5zgHGUfMQo
>>3042626Thanks for the run, Dust!Akira must be really confident if he thinks that he can move faster than a timestopped Star Platinum. RHCP is probably bonkers with that much power, but a fist to the face in Timestop should be more than enough to knock him out.
>>3042626Man that was a good edition of Rohan Quest Dust, thanks for running!
Meanwhile, during someone else's halloween
