You are Sarena Rosenberger, a Jewish pizza hostess who months ago graduated high school and lived a relatively plain life. Due to a series of unfortunate events you unleashed the mystical essence trapped within your family heirloom. A grimoire knew as the Book of Tehom. Binding the primordial monstrosity of chaos and culture hero deity of order to your very being. In the process, your body was morphed by The Source, an infinite coalescence formed from both Aether (Mukhlát/Absolute) and the Abyss (Tehom/Celestial Ocean), turning you into a demihuman/goddess.Harnessing the Pleroma on your fingertips, you call upon those words to transform into Pantheona, the divine avatar of the two cosmic forces residing inside your soul. Serving as the bridge between the natural world and the otherworldly spirit world, you slowly come to understand your placement as time goes on. After befriending both Shekhina and Tiamat, effectively balancing the two entities and achieving true duality does your additional role as balancer & warrior emissary of Order & Chaos as the "Galactic Angel of Retribution" come to the surface.Although far from truly inheriting the title, you adjust to the responsibilities entrusted upon you as you’re thrust into the metahuman lifestyle. With a can-do spirit and spunk/moxie, you dive into the world of capes. Partnering up with several other superpowered individuals alongside obtaining a familiar named Anamaria Drăculea (Asherah & Lilith), you're on your way to becoming apart of something bigger than yourself. A superhero team, the Teen Titans.Archives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=jump+cityCharacter Sheet: https://pastebin.com/LyuWSNhy
>>4682378Welcome all, to another Teen Titans Quest! Setting in the world of DC, specifically the Teen Titan’s universe abet AU. This story will on occasion take beats from the source material but will otherwise be its own unique experience. Thus we won’t be limited by just the cliff notes and regulations of the canon dynamics. That said, you’ll be playing as a pivotal character that depending on your actions can be a hero, villain, or in between.We’ll be using a die system that honestly clicked with me when composing this game from another quest for a simpler experience.Die Rules>Everyone can roll once per die chain, the three/four best rolls will be taken.>Roll 2d100 unless specifically asked otherwise>The first die determines whose roll gets picked (lowest gets priority)>The second die is your actual check (Note: The first die can still influence any outside elements pending on the roll)>A bonus will be granted if several players succeed in the dc check. The higher the succession, the grander the bonus.>Crits are Nat 1 for failure and 100 for succession. (a 99, matching or paired rolls may net you an additional bonus)>Bonuses are outside factors that commonly appear as happenstance or phenomenon. Usually, they'll change the course of the current situation/predicament, typically to your favor based on the result of the roll. They operate out of your succession and/or failure.>Bonuses only provide opportunity or second chances. They do not flat-out override the results of the roll.>Each vote generally has one roll, but if multiple actions are made or multiple votes are stack, additional roll checks will be given on a case on case basis on complexity.General Rules>Write-in is always encouraged, be it dialogue or action, but will be left to my judgment to tweak to better fit Sarena's character/story narrative>If a vote doesn't negatively contradict each other and/or is a close enough tie, I may end up using both in the next story post.>Rules may be subjected to change at any time>Remember to have fun
>>4682381Finding yourself in a rather problematic scenario you briefly diluted your perception. In mere moments everything started to slow down. Stopping only at 1/1000th of a second. You were finding it easier to tamper your newfound body with each attempt. Body supremacy seems to be one of the innate benefits for Adam Kadmon. Combined with your Paramatman it was becoming second nature to you. While not as effortless as breathing as it required conscious effort, it was a nearly split-second response. In any case with time now slowed to a crawl you begin formulating your next course of action. Given your own divinity via the aureola ring faintly emitting from your body it a no-brainer that Mala would see you as their progenitor. After all, you came from the same source that comprised Themyscira’s most illustrious champions. Though in your cause you were made with both dark and light clay rather than one or the other. Still, you feel like that the Amazonian warrior was jumping the gun a bit. On one hand, you currently stood as the stand-in for the Presence, carrying within you the divine voice thus becoming the Bat Kol (The Daughter’s Voice). Albeit it came at the cost of losing your own voice as a suitable offering and penitence for your actions. At the same time, you could feel your heart firmly embedded with the Heart of Darkness from the Sea of Brahma. Even without being in your original body you still felt the tainted essence and chaotic residual of the sunless sea grafted into your entire being. Worse yet was the added inclusion of the white void. Hence why both the Kenoma and Hysterema still reside in you in full bloom. Perhaps it was that similarity that the presence took pity to you alongside a liking to insinuate this holy union. After all, anyone who was able to round up the thirty Aeons and be able to achieve the Paramatman state was somebody worthy. Even without that your quick learning nature along with your uncanny talent to pull off otherworldly feats was nothing to snuff at. Especially such as the heightened Atman and becoming Adam Kadom. It was all worth acknowledging.Still having the holy and unholy trinity in constant presence within you was exceptionally heavy. Almost as if the weight of them both was going to crush you with their smothering density. Not that you had any choice in the matter. Well, you technically did since it was your fault in the first place. But even with your restored Pleroma amplified you couldn’t remove the copious amounts of the unholy trilogy nor the primordial apocalyptic beast’s trinity from you. They clung deeply to you like wads of gum to a girl’s hair. For better and for worse.
>>4682383Of course like with everything you decided to make the most out of it. Satania and Abbadon were your responsibility after all. Not to mention your own ties to Trihexa/Mega Therion. After making peace with your elevated animal soul as the divine soul and fully accepting her you felt a deep connection with Trihexa. An irreplaceable bond as the two of you was practically inseparable. Thus you couldn’t bring yourself to discard her. Even if it was to save yourself you didn’t see eye to eye with it. She was you and you was her, no ifs and/or buts. It’s precisely because of that bond that you were able to stay connected to your original body. You sensed that it was still present within you as neither Abbadon (Ultrawoman) nor Satania (Superwoman) truly left you. Was this entire thing a ploy to force you down your current path for their own nefarious purposes? You honestly couldn’t fathom a concrete reason except to set the stage for their inevitable ascension into this reality. Frankly, it didn’t matter what plans they have for you. All that matters was retrieving your original body and going from there. Sure being made a brand new body by Lady Gaea was very nice but you still wanted your old body back. Breaking from your long train of thought you resume thinking about how to respond to the situation in front of you. On one hand, you could humor Mala and pretend to be their queen Othrera came back into the flesh. You did after all need to see the current Queen Hippolyta for an idea to getting back your golden girls as well as your body. But on the other hand, you didn’t want to make yourself someone you’re not. You were essentially the goddess of Thots if not Eisheth Zenunim (Woman of Whoredom). So you should be the center of attention as well as the main attraction on your own. For better and for worse. Yet you couldn’t rule the possibility that there was some truth to Mala’s words. Racking your brain to the point of rattling you eventually came with an idea. Closing your eyes and clearing your mind you try to make a telepathic phone call. To the one known as aphrodite, the goddess of love as well as beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She was the patron of the Amazons in spite of her actual role. So if anyone would know whether or not you were related to Othrera then it’ll be here. At least, you hoped that was the case. “Lady Aphrodite, I beseech thee. Please answer my call.” You spoke, using the divine voice to speak. You felt it was important enough to actually speak than just think it out. Of course, it only now dawns upon you that you could’ve used the Spectre Force to astral project yourself and travel to her domain. In all fairness, you were getting used to the fact that the all-encompassing spiritual power was the true name of the astral capabilities you previously dubbed the phantom force.
>>4682384Before you had a chance to rethink your plan you would receive a response. In a blinding flash, you would find yourself taking from the outer realm of reality. Your mind and spirit materialized into a dimensional space, not unlike the various gods and goddesses you met previously. To nobody’s surprise, you would find yourself materializing at what appears to be a vast and luscious garden scape. Specifically, it was around the inner chambers of a massive temple. From its exquisite architecture to its furniture it was all colored coated in the theme of love and passion. Sitting on a comfy yet expansive bed was a woman of voluminous pink locks and a voluptuous figure. Wearing virtually nothing but her birthday suit conveniently covered by her hair. The only indication of clothing was her accessories comprising of golden cuffs and bracelets. Staring at her from a distance she bore a striking resemblance to your Stacie Sulman appearance. Right down to having the same pink eyes though for her they were natural and not contacts. Nevertheless, you sense a tremendous level of supernatural charisma and eloquence exuding from her. It was enough to make you speechless, which was ironic given your current standpoint. “Welcome to my lovely abode. I wanted to meet the newest sensation in both the divine and mystical world in person. “ Aphrodite smiles, crossing her legs together as she sizes you up.>Write-in your possible action or dialogue with meeting the goddess.
>>4682386>Stare gobsmacked for a bit, before bowing your head and stating how you appreciate the invitation
>>4682378Well this is unexpected but welcomed nonetheless
>>4682486>>4682999Okay we have our answer. Now if you want to see if your divine influence has any effect on the goddess. Give me a roll of 3d100s.
Rolled 25, 13, 40 = 78 (3d100)>>4685377
Rolled 70, 12, 6 = 88 (3d100)>>4685377
Rolled 31, 90, 52 = 173 (3d100)>>4685377
Rolled 20, 62, 34 = 116 (3d100)>>4685377
>>4685566Nice dubs.Anyway, the rolls aren't enough to completely sway the goddess of love to simping for you but you most certainly earned her attention.
>>4685377Like a deer in the headlines, you find yourself positively stupefied by the magenta-haired goddess in front of you. There was an aura of divinity that as refined as it was sophisticated. In spite of her lax approach and cheery disposition, you could immediately tell that she hasn’t dropped her guard nor awareness. If she wanted to the goddess of love could vanquish you from her domain just by blinking alone. Yet you didn’t sense any hostility or any semblance of aggression. Compared to Abaddon who didn’t bother hiding her belligerent, it made Aphrodite all the more unnerving despite her wholesome smile. Humanity genuinely fears the unknown after all.The only other person you could recall being just as mysterious was Satania. And yet when comparing to Satania’s enigmatic ambiance to Aphrodite, you knew the pink-haired goddess was much more soothing and serene. Having only yourself aka your eldritch supreme beings Satania & Abaddon for measurement made it painstakingly obvious just how greenhorn you are. Not only that but comparing the divine presence Aphrodite has and the golden girls Shekhina & Tiamat only further illustrates the insurmountable gap in experience and expertise. Given how long you been doing this you have nothing to be ashamed about.Despite now being a goddess it was only apparent that you have much to learn. And from the looks of the scantly clad goddess, she was immediately doing her part to keep you from being conceited. The divine voice was not your own power and if you want to truly make it your own along with these boons required strenuous yet diligent training and discipline. The same can be said for all the boons and gains you acquired since opening the magical Grimoire known as the Book of Tehom. Even more impressively was you eventually revealing its true form. The Sefer Raziel HaMalakh. In light of this, you have only been scraping by with the surface area. It was as true as Satania said, you were a real glutton for punishment in your unquenchable thirst for power. Nevertheless, you didn’t find any regret in your actions despite your remorse. Power without purpose is meaningless and purpose without power is worthless. Having seen the different pathos you could end up taking and experiencing your darker incarnations only reinforce your resolve. It was not a mistake that you ended up with the book and became entrusted with so many things. And you weren’t going to betray the trust and hopes placed upon you. No matter what.
>>4688116Snapping yourself after staring gobsmacked for a good while took no time at all. Truthfully you couldn’t deny that you were practically ogling her enchanted beauty and otherworldly charm. From one thot to another you could appreciate those succulent features from top to bottom. She was essentially among one the oldest temptress out there so she was your senpai. So you couldn’t help but give her the revered that she deserves. That and you felt all the more curious to just how similar she appeared to your internet personality. All the more reason for your deep intuitive observation as you gathered your thoughts. Kneeling down to bow your head, you curl your lips into a soft smile. “I, Sarena Ella Rosenberger am deeply grateful that you answered my call.”“It was nothing of it. You have been doing well earning a lot of attention and possibly clout with your actions. Let me say between you and me how grateful I am that you took care of that troublesome living island. Sure you may have lost it due to Abaddon’s actions, but compared to the worst-case scenario the lesser of two evils is far more favorable. ““Now I can already tell what you going to ask and I’ll correct the confusion. Yes, you bear a striking resemblance to the founding mother. That’s mainly due to using the clay that my mother Gaea has provided. Even used Otrera’s template to make sure your new body can house your new divine state just like your original body could as evidence with the celestial spirits you housed inside yourself.”“To reiterate Otrera is the first amazon queen of the Amazon as well as can be seen as their progenitor. However, her true identity is my incarnation and vessel. For you see, I Aphrodite am the true creator of the Amazons. So likewise, you and I have now intertwined thanks to your rebirth.” Aphrodite smiles, resting her hand on her chin as she perceives your ambiance and aura. “And I have to say while a little rocky in certain areas, you most certainly show promise. Both as an avatar and vessel~ Woman of the Apocalypse.”>Show your gratitude for Aphrodite’s hard work and even ofter your body as a timeshare to house the goddess-like your golden girls>Ask her before anything why she would do such a thing and fish out her motives>Merely give thanks as you keep on your guard and move on to ask her some questions>Write-in
>>4688123>Ask her before anything why she would do such a thing and fish out her motives>Show your gratitude for Aphrodite’s hard work and even ofter your body as a timeshare to house the goddess-like your golden girls
>>4688123>>Ask her before anything why she would do such a thing and fish out her motives
>>4688146Let's not kid ourselves, there's no such thing as a free lunch, so to speak. Might as well host her as well, we can't do any worse than Satania and Abaddon (I think we're still hosting them...ish?)Also, welcome back Maruta.
>>4693549Oops, forgot to link that to>>4688123
>>4688146>>4688364>>4689422>>4693549Doing them all. Sorry for the lack of feedback, some who know about fiction.live knows I'm also there running some other quests. That and some last-second interference interrupted my groove.
>>4693549And to clarify they're still present, but due to your actions, they got their own vassals courtesy to the living island reproducing your body's genetic makeup. But your original body is in a limbo state where the two of you are at an impasse on ownership.
>>4693885“Apologizes for being crass and impetuous but considering what I’ve been through you can understand my dubious disposition. So I’ll just be frank and ask why would you assist in giving me a body, much less one like this. From the moment I set out from Titan’s Tower into space, it seems the unfortunate series of events I underwent is just apart of the meticulous planning of a darker higher power. All just to ensure that a certain outcome comes into fruition. So again you can understand why I want to know your motives before doing anything.” You curtly remark, slowly tilting your head in a small bow. Aphrodite glances at the defensive brunette, listening in to her reasoning while retaining her cheerful smile. “The Universe has a way of leading you to the place you are supposed to be when you are supposed to be there. Whether if you know it or not." “If that’s supposed to be a piece of uplifting sage advice, I have to admit that it’s only further cementing that there are no coincidences and everything happens for a reason. Basically, Destiny and Fate exist and the presence of free-will is merely an illusion. Preordained by a higher power or natural system with the added presence of the closed-loop time theory.” You ponder with a hint of detached and hollowed eyes. “That’s a pragmatic if not downer way of looking at things.” Aphrodite retorts, stroking her chin as she notices the despondence in your tone and expression. “But let me rectify that notion right now by telling you that choice and free-will do exist. Things like Destiny and Fate do not decide how or when things happened. It’s not the preordained end all be all that you’re assuming exists. Sure there are forces out there that may help steer the course of events or circumstances. But at the end of the day, Fate and Destiny only decide the consequences for the path someone takes. Not the road they walk down upon or the way of life. Everything you did and will do is all on you. Nobody else’s. Everything happens for a reason but that meaning and purposes ties entirely on your intent, you will.” “So in other words my very heart and soul is what lead me to this outcome. That’s both depressing and comforting.” As you muse on this life was begging to show in your eyes. The negative stimuli that gave way to your paranoia and guilt were slowly dissipating. In its place solace along with resolve begins to boil up inside.
>>4694029“I can tell precisely what you ended upbringing to our universe. Although it’s more accurate to call you our new Woman of the Apocalypse, thanks to Satania’s influence and presence you share many traits with Eisheth Zenunim (Woman of Whoredom). Something that Abaddon took full advantage of, becoming the Zona Babel (Whore of Babylon). While Satania herself cemented herself as Eisheth Zenunim just like in her original reality, things aren’t playing out exactly as they have in her original universe. Again all thanks to your own actions, not because of her schemes.” Aphrodite explains. “...Otherwise, I would’ve met up with Perpetua and be coaxed into taking her will instead of Pneuma’s.” At that moment it hit you just how much Aphoridite’s words began to resonate with you. While the full extent of their plan still eludes you, you took comfort knowing that neither Abbaddon nor Satania held the supreme authority over you to enforce the preordained loop that brought upon these series of events perpetually. That was enough to reignite your hope and bring your more cheerful and bubbly self back to the surface. “As for my motive and intentions, they are quite simple. As some would see the bountiful potential for evil in you, I see the opposite. I’m not the only one who sees this given how many have tried to interject themselves into your life and help steer you down the right path. I’m just the one who was luckly enough to answer your call and help you down at your lowest point. When people face adversities or pushed to their darkest hour, their true colors show. And your colors are as pure as your all-encompassing love. Not many people would wholeheartedly accept their darker and more primal self willy nilly, much less lickety-split. And to do so without any hesitation or doubt just show the purity of your heart. Even if there’s naivety in a simple soul like yourself.”“All I want is to help you and show you the way before you end up cursing that innate quality that gave birth your compassionate and kindhearted self. It’s not wrong to have empathy and sympathy but you must not let yourself warp it into weakness or an excuse for lack of awareness. If you are to continue this path, both as the galactic angel of retribution and spirit of redemption and forgiveness then you must have unshakable conviction and the indomitable will needed to bring forth salvation to others, not just yourself. Love is a very complex and intricate emotion. The tiniest of drops can bring forth ripples that can drastically alter the flow’s course. For better or worse.”
>>4694038Slowly pulling you over with a gesture of her index finger, Aphrodite leans over to whisper into your ear. “And between you and me, I find your antics to be rather enjoyable to watch. Reminds me of another girl who’s on her way to becoming an emissary and ambassador of truth & love. Such a plucky spirit happens to resonate with me quite well. Especially with the E-thottery craze that you brought to the mortal realm. I wanna give my shot at it as well, maybe even try this whole v-tube thing to earn more praise and recognition through modern idolization.”“Then in that case, as a token of gratitude for helping me. I offer myself to you. Be it vassal or vessel., I do whatever possible within my assortment of skills and talents to repay my debts. After all, I owe my thanks for your intervention and for your wisdom.” You fully bowed to Aphrodite, treating her like the proper senpai that she should be to you. “Hmm~ That might not be a bad idea. Someone does need to help teach you the ropes of being a goddess and an amazon. And due to what Penthesilea (Orana Griffin) grafted onto you through the golden girdle of Gaea, I think my presence will help solidify the transfiguration process for proper transmigration. That and I sort of owing a favor to Shekhina and Tiamat for taking part in Hercules’s twelve labors fiasco. So helping you get them back and lessening the load is an appropriate choice of action.” Aphrodite smiles, almost pulling you into a hug in a big sister kind of way. “That and participating in this years the contest of wonder woman would bring that extra spark to make things exceptionally interesting~”>Ask Aphrodite about the Gauntlet of Wonder Woman>Accept the terms and take Aphrodite's entirety into yourself before returning to Mala.>Try to persuade a deal with Aphrodite for getting you to participate in the Gauntlet.>Try to ask more questions for Aphrodite>See if Aphrodite knows where Starfire is and see if she can warp her to your current location>Write-in
>>4694046>>Try to persuade a deal with Aphrodite for getting you to participate in the Gauntlet.>See if Aphrodite knows where Starfire is and see if she can warp her to your current location
>>4694046>Accept the terms and take Aphrodite's entirety into yourself before returning to Mala.>See if Aphrodite knows where Starfire is and see if she can warp her to your current locationI don't see a reason not to take her in, plus it'd be nice to have Kori participate with us for some friendly competitive rivalry.
>>4694116>>4694334To get a move on with this you guys can start just writing suggestions for what you want from going along with participating in the gauntlet. In any case, give me the die roll Just 4d100+10 this time.
Rolled 38, 32, 49, 67 = 186 (4d100)>>4694408>Accept the terms and take Aphrodite's entirety into yourself before returning to Mala.>See if Aphrodite knows where Starfire is and see if she can warp her to your current location
>Hey Rachel, I'm ba--oh wow, looking a bit beefier there, Rachel.>Yeaaaah, I'm gonna assume you had something to do with this, along with my sudden inability to feel my father's influence. Somehow.>...:clap: SO! Long story short, met my evil selves, accidentally somehow gave them reign over your former source of power, effectively made you the incarnation of Zyzz, then proceeded to make it so that you wouldn't be influenced by them...or me, and kind of made it so you can more or less rely in yourself for power! So, um, welcome to divinity, and...um...sorry for dragging you you into my mess.>...:sigh: Just...god damn, Sarena. I want to be mad, but...I guess it was out your control, to an extent, and hell, it's not like I didn't get any benefits out of it. Besides, I think Garfield digs the legs. :smirk:
>>4694408Maybe ask her to help Kori how to further hone her powers as the Behemoth? Not exactly her expertise, but she does wield divine power, so maybe she can give Kori an idea of what to do?I dunno, I just wanted to go along with the gauntlet.
>>4694453it's fine, due to >>4694419 I got my tiebreaker. I just need rolls
Rolled 15, 70, 89, 55 + 10 = 239 (4d100 + 10)>>4694453Just realized I screwed up the roll; trying again.
Rolled 45, 85, 54, 14 = 198 (4d100)>>4694408
Rolled 54, 11, 78, 75 + 10 = 228 (4d100 + 10)>>4694408
>>4694116>>4694334>>4694408>>4694419Glancing at Aphrodite’s words left you musing over the mention of the Contest. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to put together that it was a gauntlet-style competition. Quite possibly like some sort of Olympic Games-esque tournament. From what you briefly recalled from Orana it was a way for the Amazons to compete with one another in various forms. Typically ranging from hand-to-hand combat to gymnastic feats. All of the events are tailored to embody the amazonian spirit and preserve the innate qualities that define femininity. Though in this case, it’s more virago due to the excessive abundance of virility on top of courage and guile. Something that of course deeply resonated with the plucky and serpentine soul quite like you. At the same time, you didn’t consider being a participant for the noble showing of proving who is the greatest amazon of all. Much less be worthy enough to be among the champions chosen to become a part of the sisterhood of Wonder Woman. Truthfully you believed that upon arrival to Themyscira you were going to have to do a series of difficult feats, called labor. All with the intent of penance over your actions and to appeal to the celestial triad (Abstract, Biblical and Cosmic) of the divine. Doing so would surely bring back Shekhima and Tiamat to your side. At least that what you hoped. Okay, sure you have divinity bubbling inside of you both from your own actions and from housing divine entities inside of you. And at heart, you were more or less a model citizen in accordance with heroics 101. Well, most of the time anyway. Even so, you were feeling rather demure about the prospect since all you really proved was just how much of a perfect vessel you are for valorization. You have yet to really earn the right to genuinely call yourself a goddess nor a genuine hero. Not yet anyway. “Well, I’m honored that you would consider me for participation in The Contest. And I assume that you could work your ties in getting me into the competition so I won’t waste your time asking for such details. Instead, I’ll ask if you can bring my friend Princess Koriand'r of Tamaran here. Though she goes by Kory Anders now based on my suggestion for helping her ease to be a part of Earth’s culture as she gets her bearings.”“Sure, it should be no problem for me. I can already sense her presence on the island, so bringing her to your location is child’s play.” With a simple snap of her finger, a bright divine pinkish light envelops the Tamaranean warrior princess. Transporting her from her previous location directly towards where you were located.
>>4701224“There you go. Now your gal pal is back beside you.” Aphrodite remarks, blowing her glowing pink sparks from her fingertips.“Thank you very much, Aphrodite.” You bowed, genuinely giving her a wide cheerful smile to go with your bubbly disposition.“With that out of the way I’ll take up on your offer and we can get going.” Before you could say anything Aphrodite proceeds to pounce upon you. With a hop and a spring from her foot, she tackles against you. Immediately her celestial body started to break down, momentarily reverting herself to her true appearance. In that brief moment, she looked more aligned to what humanity depicted Aphrodite. Golden silky locks, flawless skin, delicate features, curvaceous curves, and an aura of maturity made her all the more alluring. Right down to her peerless baby blue eyes.This was enough to momentarily distract you before you saw her appearance turn into pure aeons. Even as your mind was preoccupied, both your body and soul already prepared themselves for the unification. Thus upon contact, it immediately got to work taking in the now colossal goddess into itself. Making sure not a single drop of aeons was left behind you meticulously collected and siphoned each and every aspect of Aphrodite. Taking her in all of her divine enormity as the bulk of her quintessence slides right through unabated. Chalking the process as putting on the giant mascot costume from your job helped maintain the tremendous concentration and extreme focus necessary. Though in your case you documented being the costume rather than the worker putting the outfit in question. Likewise taking all that mass and volume caused your body to stretch and grow to accommodate her. Further cementing that analogy as you endured the process of becoming Aphrodite's vessel and avatar. At least she felt rather warm as you immediately connected to her all-encompassing love and passion. Something you knew first hand from experience.After what seemed like an eternity being enveloped in a burning sun the transition ultimately came to an end. Slowly opening your eyes you would see your appearance resembling an amalgamation of your Stacie Sulman identity and Aphrodite's true form. Producing that pink-haired beauty you saw her previously taking when she was conversing with you. It all began to fall into place as you realize that her domain was actually present within your soul. Talk about making the entire thing easy for you. Yet you feel like you only managed a nigh-perfect union as you synchronize all but the last five to ten percent of Aphrodite.“Hmm, I had tighter clothing that I snuggled into perfectly like a glove. But it’s fine, I’ll make do with this fit. Just got to break it in is all.~” Aphrodite remarks, speaking through you as if you were some sort of ventriloquist dummy.
>>4701229You only looked down at yourself, gazing closely at Aphrodite with shock and awe. “Oh don’t mind me. I just decided to comment as I get accustomed to using this vessel to operate on earth while my real body remains in the realm of the gods. They were right, you really do make a spiffy vessel. Though I guess mouthpiece as well since well….you lost your actual voice.”Blushing profusely at this you soon huffed and puffed your chest before pouting at Aphrodite. She wasn’t wrong as the divine voice was something you chose to only use in the most serious of situations. Even then you made sure to do with the utmost care. After all, it was the voice of the presence and it took a lot out of you even sparingly. So it wasn’t something that can be used carelessly in every aspect. Still, it was rather embarrassing to hear that in addition to being called the thot of the gods that you were a bonafide mouthpiece as well. For better or worse.“Now don’t be like that. Listen, for putting up with me and my desires, I’ll do you a solid and let you use my voice for speaking. It would be rather problematic if you need to talk to people and have to try to convey your thoughts and feelings through body language. Am I wrong?”You tilt your head, fully flustered at her pointing out the shortcoming of being essentially mute when not using the divine voice. You gave a small concerning puppy eye look at Aphrodite as you attempt to fish out the conditions for doing so.“Well, I need some time to genuinely think of a pact requirement for giving you free access to my splendid voice. But for now, let’s just go with you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours. Though I do expect you to work twice as hard with your little e-thottery and idling. Your supporting two figures of a divinity now. And I may want to try and be a vtuber as well. So look forward to helping manage that idea.” Aphrodite winks, leaving you flabbergasted as your mind returned to the real world. As time resumed you now saw that the Tamaranean princess was right in your peripheral vision. Confused and left for a daze, Kori would find herself staring face to face with Mala who was dumbfounded at seeing the orange-skinned interstellar warrior princess. It seems that things were going to get a little more...hectic. >How do you proceed?>Wrute-in
>>4701230>Hastily use our newfound power of interpretive dance to try and smooth things over, while giving Kori a reassuring wink and thumbs up. Should that fail, use Aphrodite's voice.
>>4701328>>4701328Oh, wait, just reread >>4701230, and it looks like we have free reign (to a degree) of using Aphrodite's voice. Let me amend that to:>Hastily use our newfound voice to try and smooth things over, while giving Kori a reassuring wink and thumbs up, while also explaining to Kori where she is, how we got like this (while leaving a few details out unless pressed on it) and our plans to involve her in the contest for some friendly competition.
>>4701230Stand between them and charm them both, explain Starfire why we're here and what happened since.
>>4701328>>4701353>>4701890>>4703809Alright, that's as much planning as we're going to get. So if you would, give me 2d100+10. This is mostly with how you use Aphrodite voice for the first time to mimic your own vocal cords.
Rolled 59, 39 + 10 = 108 (2d100 + 10)>>4705831
>>4706049I see we have the equivalent of "just ate a burrito, and now my throat is uncomfortable from the crumbs still up there". Or something like that.
>>4706053If you end up failing you can give another d100, this time for using interpretive dancing.
Rolled 90, 26 + 10 = 126 (2d100 + 10)>>4705831
Rolled 96, 8 = 104 (2d100)>>4705831
Rolled 92, 72 + 10 = 174 (2d100 + 10)>>4705831
>>4706599Darn shame we're going by the lowest first number, otherwise this wouldn't be a bad roll.
Rolled 21, 61 = 82 (2d100)>>4705831
Rolled 8, 33 = 41 (2d100)>>4708017Well, this is probably as good as it gets; might as well roll for interpretive dancing, just in case.
>Meanwhile, in the possible future(?)"Sarena, are you sure about this? What you are about to do seems...ill advised.""And what's wrong with offering to give the (admittedly cute) previous Amazon champion a 'boost' to help keep up with us in the trials, or offering to let her keep said boost should she win, with a bigger boost should she win without the boost?""Dance. With. The. Devil.""HOW DID YOU--no, no, not important; also, that was essentially myself, so that totally didn't count! Okay, Mala's cute, but that doesn't mean I'm simping for her.""Uh huh.""I'm serious! Besides, the boost will essentially be if she had a month or two of working out, with the bigger boost being five months' worth...annnd maybe tossing in a slight increase to how easily she gets her 'gains' on both accounts. Look, what can possibly go wrong?">Later"Ooohhh...such POWER...">Standing there in very strained garments is Mala, looking very, VERY pumped; yet, those muscles serve to emphasize her feminine qualities as well, especially in the legs"If this is from the LITTLE boost...go ahead, take it back...I'll be taking it back and more when I am declared the victor.">Her less dress straining form reverted to, and the flames of competitiveness more than fanned, she lets slide a smug smile, before walking away."Just a little, you say?""Okay, fine, I might've gotten distracted by those thighs of hers--""Hah!""--but I swear there was also something in her that just made her VERY receptive to my power..."
>>4706977the 96, 90, and 93 will have an effect elsewhere but not in the main objective yes.
>>4705831Judging from Princess Kori’s confused expression it was safe to say that she was transported without her intent. Now you knew beforehand that Kori was whisked away from the savage lands after your darker incarnations acquired the archipelago continent from you. Like you, she ended up on the island of Themyscira. Where exactly you didn’t have the faintest of ideas. This place is rather new to you as even the incarnation that dwells inside you undergoing Amazon training only had a replica to go off on. The real thing was a whole another ballpark altogether. Hence why you beaconed Aphrodite for assistance with your alien princess. Both in finding her and helping with her own inner divinity. As for the inner beast, you already knew Kori holds a far easier understanding of it than you. Coming from an interstellar race of barbarians who are deeply in touch with their emotions made controlling The Beast of the Earth simple work. Still, you didn’t want to take any chances as balancing divine and animal souls was no easy feat, even for you. Speaking of, you begin to wonder about Rachel as she would be getting a present as the beast of the sky. Unfortunately, those worries will have to wait. Right now your blue eyes sharply catch Mala bracing herself for a fight. Her thick well-toned thighs digging deep into the stone flooring as if she was going to do one of two things. Either lung forward in a pouncing strike to pin Kori down while simultaneously disorientating her with a well-timed flying knee to the jaw. Or she was going to throw a flurry of kicks, fully utilizing the swift yet powerful blows of wind pressure to pulverize Kori before she can respond. Both options didn’t sit well with you as you think back to the first meeting with Kori. It wasn’t good to get on her bad side.Word of warning to yourself. You NEED to be specific with the choice of your wording. Otherwise, you will more often than not deal with the monkey’s paw clause when making requests or wishes. Seems the stories about the mystical wish-granting entities love to pick a part of the hubris of one’s wants and desires. At the very least there was no malicious intent or ill-will from Aphrodite. Then again it would be rather betraying her embodiment if the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, passion, and procreation would pull such a callous move. Even if Greek lore was…. very mean-spirited than other myths and legends.
>>4719817Thankfully this was certainly something that was most workable for you. Choosing to put the information gathered from Aphrodite to good use you immediately lung forward. With a hop and a spring in your step, you easily leap over the distance between you and Kori. Appearing as some divine fairy goddess poised with beauty and grace you descend gently to the ground. Before Mala could make the first move, you now stood in front of her, guarding Kori against behind. This was enough to halt Mala from lifting her leads. Leaving her to gaze at you with confusion at you stopping her from attacking the intruder. Deciding to test out Aphrodite’s voice you merely rub your throat. All it would take was a split second to try and replicate your vocal cords. Sure you could’ve just used Aphrodite’s bare divine voice but that would only make Kori all the more confused and probably bear her claws against you. And for good reason considering what she’d dealt with prior to coming to the land of the amazons. That and you weren’t exactly sure how Mala would take to hearing her progenitor’s voice coming out from you. Best to save that trump card for when you really need it.“Settle down Mala. Tone down the tension and refrain from striking my bestie Kori over there. I can tell you immediately that she means no harm and that she is with me.” You explain articulately as you try to quell Mala’s Amazonian instincts. Taking another breath as you look over to Kori with a reassuring smile.With the utmost grace and eloquence, you begin to speak your purpose to Mala. In essence, you told both girls that you mainly came to Themyscira to re-establish your link to the primordial forces of chaos and order. Which in turn would return Tiamat and Shekhina to dwelling in your entire being once again. In addition, you were hoping to also get a handle of your new divine powers and quite possibly regain your original body from Abaddon. Nothing too outrageous to ask the Amazon Queen for guidance. Although you already got a clue on how from Aphrodite but it was still wise to seek an audience with Queen Hippolyta.Finishing conveying your message left you seeing the distraught looks upon both Mala and Kori. Blinking in confusion you try to converse your message again. Unfortunately, it fell on deaf ears as Mala tilts her head trying to understand what was being spoken. As an Amazon, she would know a myriad of different languages from ancient Greece to modern languages. At first, she assumed you were speaking a broken form of Arcadian dialect but the more she listens the more incoherent and twisted it sounds. Almost like she was speaking in tongues or backward speech. While Mala was rattling her brain on the matter, Kori was the one who broke the silence and approached you. “…Assuming that you are friend Sarena, I hate to inform you but we can’t understand you,” Kori remarks, sweating a bit at the archaic and coarse speech she was picking up.
>>4719820“Huh? What are you talking about? Of course, it’s me Kor- “Before you finish you finally took the incentive to hear yourself. Much like Kori mentioned you were speaking in an otherworldly language that no mortal ears could perceive. With the tone and pitch, it sounded more like an eldritch horror than a divine abnormality coming out from your sacred lips. And to think you merely wanted to replicate your old voice.“Asdfjajdfaik!" You cried in frustration, balling your arms into fists and stomping your foot. Puffing your cheeks in frustration, you merely decide to get your feelings out through interpretive dancing and body language. If this was how it was going to end up, then perhaps you’re better off speaking through your body. That or get a text to speech function on your cellphone. >Take the L for now and follow Mala to Queen Hippolyta>Try to get either Mala or Kori as your interpreter as you speak with Aphrodite mentally over your broken speech. (Choose who)>Ask Mala to inform Queen Hippolyta of your arrival and your requests while you and Kori reconnect in private>Take the time to look around and see the competition with Mala as your guide>Write-in
>>4719830>>Take the L for now and follow Mala to Queen Hippolyta
>>4719830>Take the L for now and follow Mala to Queen HippolytaBusiness before pleasure, as they say.
>>4720480>>4720577Alright, we got our game plan, now let's follow up on your proposition. >What do you say or purpose to Queen Hippolyta upon arrival? As well as what is your overall plan/objective during your time in Themyscira>Write-in
>>4720906Gonna need some time to think up a good response; hopefully I should have one when I get back from work.
>>4720906Right, above all, maintain an air of respect and formality towards the Queen ; we might currently resemble their progenitor, but we are still guests. Being straightforward and honest with her wouldn't hurt either."Honorable Queen Hippolyta, thank you for gracing me with your presence. Forgive me if it sounds like I am lacking in tact; I am currently limited in how I communicate, thus I must get to the point. From what she has told me, I am the progenitor of Amazons. I know not if this is true, but regardless, I would like your permission to take on the 12 Trials, so I might finally restore my divine connection. I assume that, even should I be Otrera reborn, I cannot just casually request such a thing; indeed, I would be more than willing to perform a service or prove myself worthy of taking on the trials.You might be noticing my orange friend; if possible, I would also like her to participate in the trials, if not, then I would at least like her to have your permission to explore this wonderful land."
>>4722290Documented, now do you have any other plans or wants outside of your 12 trials ordeal and participating in the contest?
>>4722464Maybe explore a bit of the land and talk to it's people; it has been awhile since we've been anywhere close to civilization. Get reacquainted with Kori, see how she's been; then maybe get to know Mala, the former champion, and see if there's anything she can teach us, from their culture to martial arts. Granted, our mentor probably already taught us some of that, but it couldn't hurt to have her help us polish some skills. Totally not because she's cute and rocking some fine thighs. :cough:
>>4722765Noted, will make the next thread with that in mind.
>>4725950In the meantime, you can make rolls to help boost your smooth-talking and/or achievements. 3d100+10
Rolled 92, 12, 100 = 204 (3d100)>>4725953
>>4726298Not too impressed with that 12, but damn, that 100.
Rolled 85, 80, 45 = 210 (3d100)>>4725953
>>4726298>>4727074That's some next-level thot presence right there.
>>4727868Assuming nobody else rolls, I'll count the first numbers to compensate. This would bring us to Queen Hippolyta acknowledging you as an honorary amazon and grants her blessings. From one Wonder Woman to another via Golden Girdle of Gaea.If there's still time you can decide for yourself what kind of item/weapon you want to be fractured, otherwise if it ends up arching before replies I'll bring the topic up again in the next thread.
>>4727882Okay, lets see what we can workshop here. What would go great with our strengths, and possibly cover our weaknesses? I'm thinking a tiara with psionic resistance, that if needed could be thrown at a target, ala Sailor Moon.Anyone else got any ideas?
