You know, every father has dreams. Dreams for yourself, dreams for your family.Dreams that you'll retire early, dreams that your kids'll get a scholarship.Then there's the nightmares. One of the worst being that your kid falls in with the wrong crowd. Or, at least it is for you.Mary's been coming home late recently. Tired.So tired that she's literally been dragged in by her friends, and half the time she's leaning on their shoulder.The other half of the time, you notice the bloodstains.>Hey there, this is a one-shot. Inspired by that one quest a while back that did the same thing, except I'm probably worse at writing and have definitely watched 100% less magical girl anime. Let's get started, shall we?Mary's at the door, you can hear her knocking. As usual, she's got her arm around one of her friends. Sarah, was it?>Open the door and let Mary in.>Open the door and invite her friend, too.>Fuck it, open the door and confront both of them straight away.

>>4635062>Inspired by that one quest a while back that did the same thingThe one where our wife was a Kitsune, and we threatened a ferret with a shotgun?
>>4635103>>4635107Yes, that one.> Fuck Me, My Daughter's a Magical Girl!
>>4635062>Open the door and invite her friend, too.
>>4635127>>4635103+1>"Alright, we need to talk. What's been going on?"
>>4635062>>Open the door and invite her friend, too.
>>4635062>>4635079>>4635103>>4635127>>4635129You open the door."Hey there, Mary. Rough night?"M(ary):"Yeah, Dad. Wasn't the best.""Hmm. I've got food in the fridge, take a seat on the couch for a bit?"And with that, Sarah practically drags your daughter in through the door, past the coffee table, onto the couch.You head to the kitchen to cook something up for them. Soup, specifically. Whatever it is she's been doing, it needs to be able to go down easy.You manage to catch Sarah on the way out, while the soup's on the stove."Would you mind staying for dinner? She doesn't seem to be feeling all that well, it might be good for her to have a friend here. Besides, I've been wanting to meet her friends."S(arah): "Oh! No, I don't mind, I told my parents I was going out for dinner at a friend's anyway."Thus tempted by the offer of soup, she stays for dinner. Brilliant!You decide to eat at the coffee table. They don't look up to moving that much.About halfway through their bowls, you decide to spring the question."Alright, we need to talk. What's been going on?"M: "I was out. With my friends."She gets a bit blunt when she's tired."Doing what?"You, on the other hand, are always blunt. She's not in a state to lie convincingly right now, after all.M: "I was uhhh..."S: "We were at the mall, shopping, going to the movies, doing that kind of stuff."Yeah, that sounds about right. Guess she really did just have a rou->Roll for ???

>>4635198>>4635205>>4635210>No, seriously, what the fuck was that?You set down your bowl of soup and deliver the dadliest glare to Sarah that you can muster."Young Woman, you have 30 seconds to explain what you just tried to do to me or you're out of the house."Her eyes are wide, shocked. So are your daughter's. She's in on this too. Whatever it is.M: "Uhh, she, uh, it's kind of hard to expl-"S: "Just forget about it," She cuts in, "I'm leaving."You feel whatever it was she just tried to do happen again, and this time you aren't taking no for an answer."Sit. Down."She opens her mouth to reply, but something in your glare tells her to do otherwise.You look at your daughter."You Explain, since I can't trust her.">>Choose for your Daughter<<>It's really hard to explain, can I get some sleep and do it when I'm a bit more awake?[FUCK FUCK FUCK STALL]>Magic.

>>4635277>>4635280>>4635293"Well, you see Pops, there was this ferret looking thing..."And then she explains. And you believe her. Sort of. Not because of any of whatever it was Sarah was trying to do you, but because you trust your daughter.Actually, no, it technically was whatever she was trying to do to you. Just in a more mundane manner than magically forcing your brain to accept something as truth.You still want to meet this "Cubey" thing. Something to affirm to yourself that, no, you're not going crazy. Or that if you are, you've gone far enough off the deep end for it not to matter.The only thing you can say though is..."Young Lady, I strongly disapprove."M: "W-What! But I'm a hero! I save lives!""Without telling me. In the dead of night. With no adult supervision whatsoever. At the behest of a ferret. Fighting against Demons."M: "Well, it's not reeeaallly a ferret, it's-""A ferret."S: "Well, I'm going home.""Fair enough. It's getting pretty late."And you watch her walk out the door."And you Young Lady. You, are grounded. Indefinitely."M: "What?!? Why?!?""You didn't tell me. And until I hear something reassuring, I won't let it up."M: "Fiiiine. How about this. My friends come over and we can all tell you about everything, and you can let up the grounding.""Acceptable. Now, off to your room, Mary. You need sleep, and I need to think.">End of day 1.>+1 resistance to ???>+1 EXP>Give me a roll. 1-5 is Very Bad, 6-10 is Mildly bad, 10 & up is varying levels of inconsequential

That's because the only things in the house that have more oomph are the shotgun and the hunting rifle.You take slow, measured steps to your daughter's room.You ease open the door to your daughter's room and... nothing.

Some more loaders for the revolver, some boots, and a jacket. And the sword.Ah, the sword. A family heirloom for, oh, 400 years? It's been sitting on the mantelpiece for as long as you had it. But when you lay eyes on it, something feels right, in a way like your pistol does. It's been used, you can tell that much. It's also been cared for, you know what a neglected weapon looks like and it isn't one.'Course, you've never swung it before, but you can only carry so many rounds and the scabbard fits quite well onto your belt.Off into the truck. Of course it's a truck, what are you, some kind of pansy?You close in on Mary rapidly. She's not moving fast, wherever she's going. You'd wager out hunting, but if they're hunting, why don't they have some kind of transport?Wait, they probably can't drive.And, as you remember, pulling around the corner at NOT safe speeds that you'd go into a fit at your daughter making, probably something to do with magic.You see a fire in the distance.>Intercept>Go for the signal

Or, in this case, something.You'd best head them off before they get there, if you just follow their trail you might end up getting there too late to talk some sense into them. That sense being "Go home or I go with you". Or they might ignore your advice.Yeah! They can't ignore your advice if you're already there!Because you are, in fact, already there. It's a park and, hoo boy, there isn't really a good place to park with all the rubble and torn up trees.>Park outside, keep the truck safe.>Drive in and keep looking.

>>4637973>>4637982>>4638024You drive in. It's a difficult task, or at least it would be if your truck wasn't capable of just kind of... going over most of it.Ah. There's the problem. Great big stonking portal disgorging a horde of demons. You kind of see why magic is necessary to deal with this, but not necessarily teenage girls and "the power of love". Power of violence more like.Well. At least it's a small horde. You might not have a frame of reference, but it looks small.>Drive>Get out and go to town>Go for the weak ones, you know you can take those.>Go for the bigger guys, they look dangerous.>You might not be a magician, but you're 90% sure that the lady(?) chanting on a pile of rubble in front of the portal is vital for its continued existence.

>>4638058>>4638075>>4638091>>4638096>>4638121You realize, in a moment of clarity, that the greatest weapon that you have is your truck.And by God is it a fine weapon.One, Two, Three, Four, one after the other. You have to swerve to miss some of the big guys, don't want to damage the truck, but the little ones are small enough that running them over gives you nothing but great joy, and not impending worry of having to explain this to your insurance company.You aren't trying to hit the demons, per se, but you definitely cut a swathe through them, sure as a knife through butter. Oh sure, some of them try to fight back, but claws aren't good against steel, and their fireballs really aren't cutting it.You'd wish they were tighter packed, if you didn't also worry about your truck.You pull up behind the lady, the portal that she's holding open disgorging a steady stream of assorted nasties.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRc2vx4xTVMShe jumps, concentration broken as sure as if you'd shot her."HEY LAAADY!"?: "WHO DARES INTERRUPT THE RITUAL?!">"A CONCERNED CITIZEN!">"A PISSED OFF DAD!">Write-in

Got so caught up in the thrill of the kill that you forgot she was standing on a big enough pile of rocks that your truck, wonderful as it is, could not just drive over it, and instead are treated to a horrible grinding noise as your beloved vehicle grinds into the pile.Well, at least she's too busy staring at the shitshow to try and kill you.>Back out, the longer the truck is on the rubble the more concerned you get.>Get out of the truck and actually fight her.>Remain in the truck and shoot her.>You can totally make it, pedal to the metal.

>>4640671>>4640720The official reason that you give your daughter as you toss her into the backseat and your soon to be "guest" in the passenger's seat, is that you both don't want to kill her and can't trust her not to do this again. No matter how much she insists that, no, they don't keep this up after being caught and beaten.The UNOFFICIAL reason is that you want to learn about this magic thing from a (semi)rational adult.M: "Dad, come on, I need to let my friends know I'm okay!"She says, leaning forward from the back seat."Just yell out the window, honey," you reply, buckling Teresa in while she bleeds all over your car. "Make sure to buckle up," you throw over your shoulder at Mary, who still looks rather shell shocked at how casual you are about this.You see some of Mary's friends and a floating ferret making their way to your truck as you kick it into reverse, resolving to...>Ignore them>Say bye>Explain yourselfAs the horrible screech of rubble on car chassis overtakes your eardrums.

Their faces are pretty good too, you've never seen a ferret look shocked before."Say bye, Mary!"Mary, knowing better than to argue with you, sticks her head out the window with an unenthusiastic "bye"Ah, the reactions are even better.

>>4640999>So why didn't you invite me before, that was fun.>So, about magic...(ask your daughter questions)>>4641036Ex-military, possibly a single father (no wife mentioned yet), and maybe mind wiped after dealing with other magic shit.
>>4641036No, he just... had a tier 1 first encounter with the magical side of life that VASTLY overestimated the limits of regeneration when applied against high caliber handheld pistols. This would be a filler encounter for your daughter's team, whereas you simply had the advantage of shock and her being mostly dead for most of the fight.I'll just tell you guys this now OOC, and say you learned it later IC, but most magical creatures past a certain threat level have multiple healthbars and *some* kind of regen, even if it's weak. A normal weapon has to clear through each healthbar until their enemy is too magically exhausted to regenerate and finally dies. A magical weapon/attack, on the other hand, only has to clear through the first healthbar. If you'd been using the sword, she wouldn't've gotten up after dropping the first time.Your guest is an example of a weaker example of this, while your daughter has powerful enough regen to be noticeably fine after most fights. The Imps(weak ones) are so weak they have no regen, and probably would die to a hard enough kick. The big ones, on the other hand CAN regen, and only have 2 healthbars.
>>4641060Yes, single father. Maybe Ex-military, but I didn't factor in bonuses for such a thing. And the success that he had wasn't from that, in any case, seeing as he lacked the bonuses from that.
>>4641062forgot to mention, the healthbars get successively smaller. Her first was 25, then the next one was 15. She actually had one more, and would've tried running away if you didn't let her surrender.

I figure you wouldn't be doing this if you didn't enjoy it in some way."M: "W-well, it is fun, but I didn't think you would enjoy it.""Whaddaya mean? You telling me that we could've been having Father-Daughter bonding time and you didn't tell me because you didn't think I'd enjoy it?"M: "Well, uh... You don't have magic. And you, uhh... kind of need magic to do things like this easily enough to have fun with them?""Mary, I always enjoy a challenge."Silence reigns in the truck."So... How did you get the magic again?"M: "Oh! That's easy, I got it as a gift so I could fight!"You hear Teresa snort at this."A gift from the ferret?"M: "Yup!""With no strings attached?"M: "Just the fighting, but I wanted to do that anyway! So, Yup!""Hmmm."You don't trust that ferret.As you pull into the driveway, you notice Teresa is looking noticeably better, and visibly winces at the sight of your house.T: "Uhh, you...

I can also do other things, this is just me warming up! What, did you think glowing was all I did?"For the record, it wasn't. For the record. After all, glowing incandescently is a very useful ability.As you open the door, you notice that the living room is in disarray. And by disarray, you mean that the carpets are torn up, there are gouges in the (very sturdy) walls, and all of the furniture is overturned.Well, at least the shotgun's still by the door.>Acquire shotgun?

>>4644973You know, there are a few things in life that you love. One of them is your daughter. Another is your truck, and another is your house.One of them is your shotgun. You served with it, and when you got back home you made sure that the armorer took care of it. And when it came time to clean house at the base workshop, you called in a favor and had him send it to you.She's been yours ever since. Angelina used to joke that you paid more attention to it than her at some times.You pump a blast into it at point blank range, and watch it not just drop, but actually disintegrate.Shelly's never let you down before, and she won't now. Yes, you named your shotgun, what kind of self respecting American doesn't?>That's it for the night!

You can sympathize, you've broken a lot of stuff and regretted it later.Or she doesn't like hard labor like fixing the house will take, in which case you don't care in the slightest, because hard labor builds good character.Thankfully, the basement's liveable, even if it isn't the most luxurious.You used to use it as a gaming and training area, but you converted some empty storage rooms a while back, and now you have another, slightly smaller house under your house.It's still mostly storage though, which is why the bedroom is nothing but 3 beds and a curtain.You make the execcutive descision to get started tomorrow.>Day one, ACTUALLY ended>+5 Combat EXP>+1 Domestic EXP >+0 resistance to ?ug???ti?n>How to use EXP!>You get different EXP for using different skills!>Three types (so far)>Combat>Magic>Domestic>Combat is well, combat, using weapons and technique>Magic is all things arcane and arcane related>Domestic is, well, everything else.>5 Combat EXP>1 Magic EXP>1 Domestic EXP>Cost increases as I see fit, usually either 2^(levels) or (levels)^2, or linearly.

I've seen it before, even if I haven't been around long. Someone gains access to some wellspring of power, and then they only ever use a variation on the first spell that they cast. For fighting, that is."Your daughter seems slightly embarrassed at her final two lines.T: "I will admit, they," She says, looking at your daughter, "Don't usually need to. They'll be powerful enough to coast by on one type of magic, not even counting whatever weird stuff they might get, in the case of your daughter. I, on the other hand, can't just keep casting one spell. You reminded me of that yesterday, rather harshly.""What do you mean?"T: "About the 'weird stuff' or the casting one spell thing?""Both, please."T: "Those girls your daughter hangs out with? They can do things that no normal mage can, both power-wise and control-wise. One of them? She can just... teleport. Like that," she says, snapping her fingers. "I did my research beforehand, you see, even if I didn't really prepare much else. Normally, it requires at least a few minutes even if you're absurdly good, or some prep work. Even then, it's not near as clean, so to speak. So far, it seems like they can also do more normal ma-, wait, what am I saying. Hey, shoot off a spell."M: "What? Why?"T: "Example purposes."M: "Fine."Mary shoots a beam of light, about as strong as a laser pointer.T: "I'd bet you can either only do some version that, or that and some other, really impressive thing."M: "I, uh... just... that..."Your daughter seems embarrassed.T: "That's 'normal' magic. The bit with teleporting I mentioned isn't. Showing an example is a bit easier than explaining. Now, about the casting one spell thing. What I should've done was either put up a barrier or get that gun away from you. I... wasn't thinking straight at the time."Well, that's a lot to think about.Ask more questions if you want more answers, spoiler them if it's OOC.>Why is it so hard to get into magic?>Why DID you decide that fiasco in the park was a good idea?>Something else that I can't think of off the bat.

All the shattered wreckage of just about everything that wasn't bolted down is now outside of your home.Thankfully, you had three people, even if you did most of the work.

Your kitchen is almost as big as her entire apartment, even if you include[i/] the bathroom.The floor is also covered in a week's worth of mess, which Teresa assures you is not a habit she's planning on keeping.It makes you sad, even if Teresa's reunion with her book makes you happy.And the most redneck looking stovetop chemistry set you've ever seen, which she assures you is meant for alchemy and isn't, in fact, the world's least safe meth lab.>You gained "Corbin's Guide to the Lesser Elements; 23rd edition">It is Teresa's beloved book of magic, and where she gained her knowledge.>Most of it, at least.>With it, she can now teach you the spells within, and some *very* simple alchemy.After this, you head to a different Home Depot that's actually open, but the staff there is relatively unhelpful.

You think it's funnier that way.C: "Hi! So, I believe you already know what we do here, right? Stop magical threats to the city!""But why are you using teenaged girls and not adults?"C: "The reason is that either you have to know about magic, or you have to be young to see me. Otherwise, I look a lot more... normal! And I can't get adults into it if I can't talk to them, no? That's also why I can't ask for permission!""Why not introduce them to magic afterward?"C: "Once you're involved, there's no going back! Never Ever! You can see now, and you'll never be blind again!

What are your roles?"D: "I kill things. But like. better than everyone else."J: "She's being honest, that's her job. I keep her from killing the wrong things and I put things back together. It's dangerous work, so I need to look out for everyone and keep them together. Literally."S: "I keep everyone else on track. I also erm... deal with the whole... witnesses issue. Not like that, I just convince them there was an accident or something, and not a magic fight.""Convince" your ass. It's probably what she tried doing to you.J: "Oh! I also help repair the scene so that there's less questions. That park yesterday looks fine now.""So, Mary, what do you do?"M: "I'm new so my role isn't really... defined, yet.""Fair enough. So," you say, turning back to Cubey, "When were you going to tell me that my daughter was risking her life like this?"C: "Never!""So," you say, "Now that I do know, will you tell me?"C: "Well gee mister, since you're asking so nicely I will! Or I'll have someone do it for me!"There's a large gap in the conversation."So... Any of you want to learn how to shoot a gun?"M: "What!?"S: "What?!"D: "YES!"J: "If Sis is going!"C: "Yes please!"You weren't expecting the ferret to respond, but okay.S: "But why?!?""It's a valuable skill to have and extremely useful for self defense."S: "But we have magic! Why would we use a gun when we have magic?! Especially to fight!""Shit, it worked for me."S: "Is THAT what the noises were!?""If you mean yesterday at the park, probably."S: "I-"J: "Joan, I'm going because I'm not going to be able to stop Diane from going.

>>4656207Thanks for running QM. Since I have a feeling the dad will become a lot more active in the whole magical girl business, especially with the basement witch, will we be able to turn our house into some kinda magical girl home base? Also will we be getting more backstory on both Mary and her dad?
>>4656216Yes you will, actually. Seeing as you're the one and only (semi)magical dad of the group, this is the only adult supervised, private place that they can discuss Magical Girl business.You'll get more backstory if you ask for it or if it comes up in the story.Also, you're welcome. I started writing this quest to hone my writing skills.
>>4656207>TFW the dad doesn't even give a shit about the magical bullshit and lives the mantra of the double tap >TFW odds are we will likely end up going on Ebay to buy literal silver bullets to shoot magical shit with, and will confuse the fuck out of demons and monsters as they get shredded by the shotgun anyways>TFW the dad probably has dealt with dumber more powerful supernatural bullshit in the military anyways
>>4656705I can say this, the only thing supernatural was the dumbassery that your company got into.If you've encountered supernatural stuff before, you don't know it. That's what this post >4635198 up here's for.The most beneficial thing you could do (in character) with magic that I can see is using it to augment your physical combat. IE, getting your hands on a book of Body magic/researching your way into it and using it to improve your body OR just straight up boosting your magic capabilities and benefitting from it passively like Teresa does to get multiple healthbars.
Apologies for the utter lack of updates recently, the internet went out for a bit and I started playing Rimworld, and if you've played that you need no further explanation.If you do need further explanation, it is Factorio levels of absorbing.

"Good question, there're probably other sources of magic out there, and I know you can definitely get power on loan like your daughter, but the one the book teaches about is your inner well of magic.
