"In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only moe."-Anonymous
The year is After Diaspora 2012.Fleeing the cataclysmic destruction of the Two Day War, transhumanity has scattered itself across the stars, seeding Earthborn life across a thousand worlds. From the ashes of Old Terra arose a new civilisation, tied together by the sword it used to slay the beast of scarcity. Though all worlds are overseen by the Resource Allocation and Distribution System, the planets themselves range from wild, total anarchy to the constricting binds of tyranny. In these matters, the ReADS preferred to keep its hands off, except such times where a threat might be posed to all worlds, and the agents of their Firewall are necessary.Seventy two hours ago, for the first time in transhuman history it was confirmed that they were not alone in the galaxy - first contact was made. Unfortunately, it was hostile - the aliens, dubbed the "Vonnies" for their Von-Neumann machine tendencies - dismantled a Firewall outpost and the surrounding colonies. The only survivors were the young girls, whom had apparently triggered a bug in the Vonny IFF system.Forty eight hours ago, the order was sent out - begin the recruitment for a Firewall 'Cadet' program to defend key communications points until Project Riposte was completed; Operation: Mahou Shoujo.You are currently being the timid brunette. After a prank on Reimu that might have gone just a -little- too far, you apologized to the girl and gained a bit of insight as to why she is such a bitch all the time. Returning with her to the Base Cafeteria, you arrived to the sight of a very troubled Minaka who was refusing to go into the kitchen. Deciding to take a peak, you discover that Alex is preparing breakfast for everyone to an audience of billions, with three cameras, a very large frying pan, and most decidedly without a shirt.>Wat do?
>>20318034Wait timidly until Alex is done cooking and then drag the other two inside for pancakes.
>>20318034Wonder about this strange lack of concern that he has no shirt and watch as he makes breakfast.Also wonder how often he does his omnitube show like this

You wonder for a moment how he can stand the whole 'hot dough splattering onto his bare chest' thing given his lack of shirt or apron, but realize that given the number of battle scars his body has, he likely just does not give a fuq.And following that trail of thought, you wonder just how often he makes these sort of shows...===OMNITUBE===TheRealRedComet183902's ChannelVideos (By Category)=REGULAR ORDINARY RED COMET MEAL TIME=First Video: Cadet Barker's Cooking for CombatDate Posted: June 24, AD 1469Latest Video: MANCAKES (In Progress)Date Posted: August 14, AD 2012Videos: 14,293=FIREBLOG=First Video: Cadet Barker Reporting For Duty!Date Posted: May 06, AD 1469Latest Video: My Cadets Are Horrendously BadDate Posted: August 13, AD 2012Videos: 59,296Subscribe to Channel?>Wat do?

"I knew the guy's been around for ages, but he's a quintacenturian?"Minaka, on the other hand, looks all the lovestruck countrygirl - the number of hearty's that have filled your screen from hend Sends are borderline on the absurd. You take a gander at the videoas well.===OMNITUBE===Cadet Barker's Cooking for Combat-Posted by ThunderBoltZolt (Name changed to TheRealRedComet183902)Description: So since I'm doing this whole Firewall Weblog thing for all the infos I'm cleared to release, I might as well put this channel to personal use as well. So here's the Pilot episode to my new cooking vlog: Cadet Barker's Cooking for Combat! Where there's no gimmicks, no ULTRA MANLY WAAGH MANFOOD barbarism, and no shortcuts. Only Pure, Unrelenting, -Cooking-.Today we'll be doing a fairly simple pasta bolognese - not that crap "SomeDipshit" put up on the Compilibrary, but real, prepped from ingredients pasta. A tradition that ventures back millenia, to before the Two Day War and Old Terra was more than just a smoldering under reconstruction. Back to my ancestors, from Ancient and Venerable Roma, where the concept of noodles and putting tomato-based sauces atop them was invented.But I'm rambling now - on with the show.(The video consists of a highly androgynous, reserved looking brunette getting flustered as he continuously makes minor mistakes in the preparation of the dish, before at last he gets fed up at the entire thing and chucks the dish at the camera and starts breaking things.)>Field Too Long

>>20318603Look back inside the cafeteria, see if it's now safe to enter, and then eat breakfast.
>RedComet stole somebody else's nicknameHehehehAnyway, giggle a bit at the juxtaposition between Alex's past body and his current one, but not judgingly or anything because this is the future and that sort of thing isn't really noteworthy.
>>20318653No, fuck you.Do>>20318664, then eat.
Actually, spaghetti with meat sauce was actually invented by Italian American immigrants. Italians do make a meat sauce (ragu alla bolognese), and they do make spaghetti, but the two would never go together. Heavy sauces are always paired with thick tube shaped pastas, and spaghettis with herbs and oils.Spaghetti with meat sauce is as American as chop suey and texmex. Which is to say, very.
>>20318653No, we're not doing that. Do >>20318664 and then >>20318625
>>20318688Dude. You realize that these future folk think that King Arthur's table included Nanoha as Merlin's apprentice, right?(They lost a LOT of history in the Two Day War).
>>20318603Determine if it is safe to enter the cafeteria. Do so, if it is
>>20318705T-they lost nutritional anthropology?!I'm...I'm not sure if I want to live vicariously through little girls in such a future...
>>20318705Actually, they have a pretty awesome view of history.I kind of like it better than the real one version.
>>20318688Basically >>20318705, but I found the culinary info to be quite interesting.
>>20318603Make a note to talk with Alex privately when we have a chance to ask if we can change like he did. If it's possible for us to become strong and confident like him.But for now hide behind Minaka and watch him make breakfast and don't enter the kitchen until it seems safe.
>>20318771>>20318771No way, he's scary.>Ms. Brunette's biggest issue is her lack of confidence. I feel like if I look at the poor girl too long she'll just break into a thousand tiny pieces. But at least she's got the maths right in popping up those shields - apparently, when I'm not looking at her and making her shake apart, she blocks 90% volume of fire, and can take out the turrets pretty reliably with those cryo bombs.If only he was a girl about our age, that wouldn't be scary.
>>20318771I'm pretty sure he resleeved in order to get that big
You can't help but chuckle a little bit, given the gigantic difference between the body that Alex was born in and the one he currently inhabits. There are, of course, far stranger morphs that he could have inhabited - your Infosys professor, for instance, is a flock of doves - but still. It comes off as almost ironic, like seeing images of a puppy next to the Sheepherd dog it would eventually grow into. For now, you quietly slip past Minaka and Reimu, safely putting them between you and the door.Minaka is licking her lips. "Oh my." she says. "Alex was positively -delicious- when he was young-" She is cut off by a shadow falling over her, a giant of a man, in cape and carapace, standing over her ominously. "Aheh.... heh...""Did somebody say DELICIOUS!?" He demands.Minaka sheepishly raises her hand."EXCELLENT." He roars. "I finished fixing your errors in nutritional intake, young one. Breakfast is now of sufficient caloric intake for your TRAINING REGIMEN." He grins, and scoops the three of you up. "COME MY ADORABLE STUDENTS. BREAKFAST IS UPON US."Three times faster than you would have thought possible of a man his size, he is in the Cafeteria, depositing each of you infront of one of the huge stacks of pancakes. He himself takes a seat at one even more obscnely large, and with grace and elegance suprising of his new size - though quite in place of his original morph - he begins to eat.>Wat do?>Roll Stamina to determine pancakes eatable.
>>20318855That much is obvious, but old him got flustered, wasn't confident in his skills, made minor mistakes. That's a big change from the larger than life man she sees today. Maybe she can ask him over breakfast.

>>20318967I agree on the stuttering I just didn't feel like writing them out. Sit next to Alex for this, I think Minaka and Reimu will be too distracted to hear us if we keep quiet and talk to him at a different side of the table. We want semi-privacy, we don't want them to hear or listen in, but we don't want to get too far away from Minaka as this guy is kinda scary big, he's a nice guy but he's still intimidating to be around.
>>20319003He isn't scary big he is terrifying hugeIf he had any other name it would have to be Big McLargehuge the gigantic
>Highest of First Five: 22You successfully manage to eat through twenty two of the fifty pancakes before it becomes too much for you to handle. Filling in the corners with a slice or three of bacon, you don't think you can eat all that much more. Reimu had barely put a dent in her stack, still fiddling around with her tenth pancake, looking a little bit on the green side. Minaka has also pushed in her plate, though you notice that her remaining stack is a few cakes shorter than your own.Alex, of course, is being the perfect gentleman, having finished his stack while no one was looking, lightly wiping his face with a cloth napkin. When the last of you decides that she has reached her limit, the table springs apart and brings everything down for decompilation."Excellent, excellent." He says. "Most recruits make it through about six on their first day - we'll have you down to a fullstack before the month is out, if you keep this up." He taps the visor, and the assessment of your strengths and weaknesses from his 'My New Recruits Are Horendously Bad' audvid come up. "I'll leave it up to you for today - what sort of exercises would you like to begin with?">Wat do?
>>20319224Passing out from the obscenely large breakfast sounds good
rolled 11 = 11>>20319224Greek wrestling
>>20319224The obvious thing is to work on our weaknesses. Find a holoprojector and have it make something scary, then fight it.
>>20319224I'm thinking we work on a combat exercise that forces us to work together.An enemy force with ranged support. Minaka takes their advance forces in melee and keeps them from getting to Reimu so Reimu can lay down ranged fire at them while we deflect enemy fire from them with our shields and suppress portions of the force with our drones. It'll give us an idea of the things we most need to work on and give us a baseline to work with to identify how far we have to go.To work on our fear and timidness we should make the enemies scary looking.
>>20319291Sounds pretty good.
>>20319291Seconding this, though instead of just having enemies scary-looking, have high-speed objects slamming into our shields.We're not an 8-year old huddling in her blankets to hide from the monster in the closet.We're just socially awkward and lack self-confidence.
>First to three votes: Team BuildingYou, Minaka, and Reimu, share a meaningful look, the same thought crossing each of your minds. As one, you turn to Alex, and give your answer."High speed combat," says Minaka, stars in her eyes."Anti-swarm maneuvers," says Reimu, her voice and face flatl resolute."T-teamwork," you say, forcing your voice to project."Adohoho," Alex chuckles. He scratches his chin, giving each of your answers some thought. "Not quite 'in sync' with your teammates, are we? That's a very strong point in Anne's favor, yes? Practice with one another more and more, until you are able to finish your comrade's sentences, live your comrade's life?" The three of you look horrified at the prospect. "No, we won't be doing any such exercises yet. Not until I have seen you in combat proper..."The light over his head flickers on cue, and he gains a rather evil grin."Do not worry! I think I have something that will work quite well in fulfilling all of your desires. Meet me outside the firing range in an hour - take some time to digest, relax, prepare yourselves for the trials to come." He smirks. "We wouldn't want you to lose your pancakes, after all!"With that he walks out of the room, presumeably to prepare for training.>Wat do?
>>20319453Do as he said, relax and digest our breakfast. Surf GoogleNews and check out the social sites; see how society is taking this whole Alien Invasion thing.
>>20319503And whatever family we have as well
>>20319453Relax a bit, digest our breakfast. Talk to Minaka about what she meant by Alex being delicious while he was young. Also bring up how very shirtless he was when making breakfast today.
>>20319514Fuck our parents. They're only one step removed from the kind of people that kidnapped and killed (temporarily) Reimu.
>>20319540No, not this. One is enough. Do >>20319503.
>>20319567Whoa, dude. I think you're taking that a little far.
>>20319514>>20319567I wouldn't call them quite that bad, but we still definitely dislike them. Not letting your kid get enhanced is a far cry from drowning kids. I agree with not calling our parents. They're overly restrictive and have made us unhappy but they aren't complete and utter monsters.
>>20319503Although I don't think the news release will be released for months.
>>20319600A lot too far IMO>>20319567we have so far had no information on Anne's family so they could be quite good people or she might be orphaned ( unlikely )
>>20319611Did we ever actually show any intention towards wanting enhancements or any need for them?Remember Anne has quite good stats without any modifications so it could be they just thought they were unecessary and Anne did too
>>20319540How bout no.
>>20319651>Anne did too>Before birthI don't think she thought much of anything.
>>20319651Anne's parents think that genemods are unnatural.Anne wishes that she had genemods.
>First to three: Demand Knowledge of Young Alex's Dericiousness>Close Enough: OBSERVE WORLDLY NEWSINGSYou and the other girls decide to go relax in the rec room, having discovered its incredibly comfy couches last night after the rather gruelling training session. Reimu slouches into one of them and goes off to do her own thing - if you look at her glasses closely, you can see the double image of a bearded man sat upon a throne crafted of a thousand swords, looking grim as winter. Minaka stares at the ceiling, probably working her way through the Saga of the Stubborn Alchemist, a classical pictext from before the Diaspora.You yourself decide to take a look at what is new in the verse, and if the whole 'all consuming alien invasion only avertable by little girls' thing has been released, or is being taken well.===OMNEWS====Breaking=Study Shows Possible Fourspace Fractures Manipulable Through A-K TensionWarplanet Verse Cup Officially Gone Nuclear: Red Team is bringing their A-Game.Marinara Meatballs Go Undefeated For Second SeasonNew Breakthroughs in Cybermods: Disregard Genemods, Acquire Robofist.============Nothing about an alien invasion - though the Red Comet not hamming up the headlines is probably an indicator that shit has gotten real somewhere.

You supress the urge to further question the other girl regarding the tastiness of people, and decide to take a further look at the Fourspace article and the Cybermod article.===OMNEWS====Study Shows Possible Fourspace Fractures Manipulable Through A-K Tension=A recent study done by the Yagami Foundation has discovered that the minor 'fractures' in Fourspace caused by point to point expanding singularity faster than light travel can be amplified via Atomski-Kepler manipulation. While the math is currently not opensourced, the recording of the so called 'paradox spiral' caused by their high A-K Tension tests with the Sol-4 Particle Accelerator has been confirmed as real for 95% of definitions.The implications of this are the creation of so called 'stable time loop' fourspace travel, similar but not exactly the same as those first positted in the Before Diaspora Audvid "Primer". Practical uses include potentially inifinite computational power, as well time-debt negation from point-to-point FTL Travel.=New Breakthroughs in Cybermods: Disregard Genemods, Acquire Robofist.=Are you stuck in a non genemodded body?Do you have moral opposition to genetic modification?Do you just want to be awesome?Well, new advances in cybermodifications may well be the answer. While many cybermods exist already, these improvements are heavily limited by their comparative bulk and the difficulty in running non-parralelled neural impulses (See: Circuit VS Neuron - The Unfortunate Lag). These new advances in neuron-circuit impulse transition have reduced thought lag to a trillionth of a second from the previous best interface of a thousandth. While power users will still notice the difference when running multiple instances of themselves for functions autocrowdsourcing, the average user experience has been improved by literally a millionfold.============>Wat do?
>>20320130Be back at 8pm EST.
>>20320130>Are you stuck in a non genemodded body?Yes>Do you just want to be awesome?Y-yesWhere do we buy these robofists?
>>20320130Be the pinkettte, look over Annie's shoulder and ask if she is opposed to being genemodded.
>>20320130Plan Tech-Priestess is GO! Call up Daedalus, see about the possibility of improving our meat with superior chrome. We might not be allowed to genemod and so on because of our parents but we might be able to replace our bits with superior parts.Also ask Daedalus if she can get us the math behind the A-K tests, we'd like to look through it and see if we could apply it to the Magical Girl program.
Note that cybernetics likely won't fix Annie's smarts:speed issue.
>>20320208>Are you naked in a beanbag chair eatin' cheetohs?
I hate to rain on everybody's parade, but we don't know if the Vonnies will like cybernetics.Also I'd go for nonobvious mods, like wire nerves or something.
>>20320591Cover it in bluegoo. Problem solved.
>>20320591I agree that we don't know enough about the Vonnie software to be able to say if extensive cybermods will still trigger the IFF bug. We will need to go over the girl data from the evacuation to see if any of the girls who survived had any cybermods.
>>20320823They eat through the blue goo eventually. If we could just cover everything in blue goo we wouldn't need the girls underneath at all.Unless... we cover the blue goo in blue goo.
>>20320928Yo dawg, etc. etc.Anyway we probably should see if the Vonnies eat cybermodified people. While we're at it, we might want to check if some of the survivors had replacement bodies like Reimu did. That came up in a way earlier thread and isn't very likely, but it's worth checking out.
>>20320928Bluegoo is a plot contrivance to ensure our girls can have equipment without instantly losing it.
>>20321221Only sort of. Blue goo is a type of nanotech that's been talked about in quite a few places. Nanotech hunting nanotech.
>>20321546Oh hey, it's ReADS, awesome.
With but a single thought springing forth from your mind, Daedalus - or one of her forks - appears within the field of your vision as she had earlier yesterday morning. Her hair wisps out like that of a ghost, long, blonde, ethereal as the moonlight gown wrapped around her. She smiles, lightly, the benevolent mother of Harpur's Reach.-Uh-ummm... Miss Daedalus..?- You ask, uncertain how to adress her. -I... don't have the best genes of the three of us girls... because I'm a 'sline and all... and I really don't want to be a burden on my team.- You breath out, and back in, wit more confidence. -I know my mother and father would flip a basket if I had them tampered with, too. Are there any Cybernetic modifications I might obtain to balance this issue?-The AI - or her fork, though given it will likely resynchronize immediately that issue hardly matters - pauses, running non-existant hand over non-existant chin in thought.-I will have to run some tests.- She says -Acquire more datapoints from the Vonnies regarding how they react to cybernetic augmentation. The record holds that none of the survivors had any such improvements aside from corticals, but further research into the topic has uncovered that no one on the colonies had -anything- but corticals.- She sighs. -Too few data points; too small a set of colonies. Everything we have is primarily hypothesis, though your issue warrants further investigation."She begins to fade. -If that is all, I must bid you...-You cut her off, remembering. -Wait! You don't by any chance have the math from the Yagami Foundation experiments, do you?"She smiles. Light sears across your mind, and you see numerous maths that you understand the properties of, but can't quite figure out just how they arrived at point B from point A. Daedalus fades, leaving you with the new insight.>Wat do?
Finish breakfast, possibly get excited and gush to Minaka about scientific advances.

>>20322185As much as it pains me to say it, I guess I wouldn't mind if you planned around it or maybe just set the difficulty above 29/34.For example, the stuff could require EXOTIC MATTER FROM INSIDE A BLACK HOLE, and the ship to retreive it has to be built. I can't offer much more advice without knowing details.
>>20322185Don't make a natural 20 an auto success. Some things CAN just be too hard. Heck, if you want to still give us SOMETHING, just give a little hint or two, not the whole thing.

You quickly flash your memories of the equation onto the storage of you Omnitool. Bringing it up into your view again once more reveals the long, nigh incomprehensible strings of symbols and numbers, corresponding to variables you half remember from when you had taken your classes on Physics both Applied and Theoretical. You zoom the equation out, and ponder it for what seems like only a moment.Then, suddenly everything clicks. Like a madwoman, your mind focuses in on the equation to the exclusion of all else - it is almost as though this is what you were born to do.Time flies. You think you may have felt a hand upon your shoulder, an arm in front of your eyes, a pair of giant hands come to pick you up and drag you to the targetting range. The ghosts of rubbered bullets whizzing about you as you don't pay much attention to the field at all, but for ensuring that your work upon this task go uninterrupted. But this are all half illusive imaginings, convenient dreams your mind had wrought in the back of your head as your hands disassemble the math and move it into an equation.The most basic form of the possible derived equations of this theory - not one for offense, nor for defense - simply a portal with which to view things of the past, or plant things from the future for your present to see. The most basic timeloop - the Polymeric Falcighol Derivation. You sigh, and contentedly lie back into the couch which you had been sitting on...And nearly fall off the bench of one of the cafeteria tables, Minaka staring at you worriedly with a steaming cup of cocoa in her hands."Are... are you alright, Anne?" She asks, handing the cup to you. "You went into the engineering place for a while... a long while...">Wat Do?
>>20322521Cackle, state that, "I got it!"
>>20322521I can see time....
>>20322521Cackle, tell her what we found out. Feel more than a bit smug.
>>20322521I'm amazing!What time is it?
>>20322521"I DID IT!"And cackle madly. It's not often that we get to do that.
>>20322521Grin, laugh like a madwoman, stare right into Minaka's eyes.It all makes sense, the math all works. While I can't break time I can bend it, I can see the past, and I can send messages from the future into the past which is pretty much the same as seeing into the future or technically a future.Don't you see Mina, the possibilities for this are endless.
>>20322521>or plant things from the future for your present to seeShow the equation to ourself from just after we talked to Daedalus so that we already know it and then use the 20 to get another equation with all that work we just did. Repeat until we know everything.
>>20322613We should probably tell Daedalus that we managed to work it out.
>>20322620>stable time loopNope.
>>20322620We should probably hold off on trying to break time itself for now. Do some safe testing bits before we do something like that.
>>20322696What's not stable about it?
>>20322774If it was stable it'd be go back and help ourself learn this equation without revealing that we're helping. What was suggested was to go back, alter our perception of events and try to get an outcome which is different from what happened. Remembering to send a message back to ourself is different from sending a message that we don't remember receiving.
>>20322808Fine, we'll just do it tomorrow.
You gaze at Mina with a half drunken smile. "I did it. I beat the planet brain at a game of maths..." You gladly take cup of cocoa offered from your friend's hands, pouring it down your partched throat with not a care in the world for how searing hot it was. "I tore away the mask of nature and stared into the face of god." You cackle, just a little. "And I found it lacking, and made it my b-bitch!"Minaka stares at you. "Are you okay, Anne?"You laugh further. "I've beaten the game, Mina, tipped the domino that will bring about the fall of entropy. I have broken time itself!""Well you certainly wasted a lot of time..." she says. "Sixteen hours - SIXTEEN HOURS of watching you stare into that empty space, just casually avoiding anything that might break your concentration." She huffs. "Alex, at least, was impressed - he's given us tomorrow off so that he might unravel the mysteries of your 'Zen Dodging'." She shakes her head. "But if you've really broken time, prove it.""Kay..." You aren't quit sure how to do that yet, though there is a message waiting for you in the Derivation's "in box". "Let's see - I've got a message from future me right here. It says 'Do it. You know what I'm talking about. Now's pretty much the only time you'll have the courage, so do it!'" You wonder what that means.As does Minaka. "Well isn't that conveniently vag-" You perform maneuver 6 Alpha 9er 7 Gamma 'shut up the roomate you've been crushing on.' Otherwise known as kissing her mid sentence. Your courage doesn't last, and almost immediately pull away red-faced.>Wat do?
>>20322944Er I um er...
>>20322944Panic, stutter, then run away.
>>20322944Take a few steps back and stare at our feet. Say this while blushing the deepest shade of red possible and stuttering a lot.You know and I know that the only time I could have possibly summoned up the courage to do that is if I was encouraged to do so. I would only have told myself something like that if I had already confirmed it working out positively in the future, which means stable time loops are possible and that you're agreeable to me kissing you, which means you like me like I like you. Right?
>>20322944Run away! We have to figure out how to send that message so we can send ourselves enough courage to kiss her again.
>>20322944Y'know, I think >>20323046 is best.
>>20323046This I guess. Maybe with running away after.
>>20323046Needs more running away, but otherwise I'll switch my vote to this.
>>20323046This, then more makeouts with her taking charge.
>>20323246By 'her' I of course mean Minaka.
>>20323046This, followed by an immediate, expedited tactical retreat.
>>20323246I'm good with this too.
Easy way to prove that we got it working to Deadalus. Have her select two large primes, like 10-20 digits, multiply them together. It would take us even with our computers and so on a good amount of time to factor it so us solving it instantly by reading our inbox would prove that it worked. This works because the only loop in which it's stable is the one where we send the correct number back so we will instantly get the answer. We just completely broke computing.
Minaka turns pink. Very, very, very pink. Quite possibly pink than your are, but given that her hair is already pink you aren't quite sure whether or not she actually is. The point being that she is equally flustered by this situation as you are, and is most certainly definitely not giving you a death glare. Which can only be a good sign."Um... I... Er..." you mutter, taking a few steps back, staring at your feet. "I-I think you and I both kn-kn-know that the only way I c-could get thet gumption to d-d-DO that is if someone had encouraged m-me." You breath deep. "And I know that I would have only told myself to do... do -that- is if I had already confirmed it working out for the better. T-t-THUS, stable times loops are possible, and... and..." Your voice becomes very small. "You are at the very least agreeable to kissing me, if not r-r-r-returning my feelings."You suddenly think that this is a very... very bad idea and you really shouldn't have gotten all impulsive. You attempt to make a tactical retreat, but Minaka does -something- with those incredible reflexes of hers and knocks you the other way entirely, falling into her arms."I don't know much about time travel," she says, looking at you. "Or even if that sort of thing works. But I -am- beginning to expect you picked the Guinevere seat on purpose..."You meep.She silences you.>Wat do?

>>20318026I don't know if this has any relevance to the thread (cause Im pretty baked), but that picture is awesome because you can see the two tectonic plates going deep into the planet from the reflection in the ocean.
>>20323384Turn into jelly in her arms. Kiss her, for longer than the first one because any attempt at talking would come out as a swiftly shushed jumble of syllables and stuttering.
>>20323475None whatsoever. Currently, the relevant topic is two chicks making out.You are awesome, though. And you most definitely should feel awesome.

>>20323738We could switch over to Daedalus, and using the Derivation, actually tell ourselves if Icarus will be in danger or not.

You just sort of -melt- into Minaka's arms as she takes the lead, though you do have the good sense to quickly Send over a copy of the Derivation to Daedalus before the pinkette escalates to the point where she accidentally knocks off your glasses. By then, of course, you are half pressed into the table, your skirt hiked up above your hips and your blouse completely unbuttoned. A quivering mass of nerves, your attention is completely focussed on Minaka, and the distressing amount of clothes that remain on her.You are so focussed in fact, that you do not see Reimu walk into the room, stop for a good moment, stare at the two of you, and calmly walk out, half laughing and shaking her head. Nor do you notice the message popping up in your inbox, because your glasses are on the floor.From: Reimu@Hakurei.netTo: AnneChoi@science.com----(Attached is a picture of Minaka 'wrestling' Anne to the cafeteria table).If this isn't bottoming to the pinkette, what is?Your Buddy(?),Reimu----You do however, gain a temporary metaphysical knowledge that there are a good number of people watching this all beyond the fourth wall, right as your last article of clothing hits the ground. You promptly relinquish narrative control, allowing the scene to properly fade to black, as is fitting of a romantic and not at all lustful couple as you and Mina.>Who Be?>Thread, if alive, will resume tomorrow at 1pm EST.
>>20324041Be the Daedalus.We've got so much stuff that our upstream-self needs to send to our current-self.Such as: Will Icarus trigger the IFF Bug?Where will the first Vonnie attack occurr?
>>20324090>Where will the first Vonnie attack occurr?Never. Too many underaged lezzings to get to.
>>20324090How much longer till Icarus accidentally compiles more drugs.
>>20324041Alex L. Barker, the Red Comet who grasps victory from the jaws of defeat.Failing that be Daedalus, we've got work to do. We need to find how cybernetics interact with the Vonnies, if Icarus and the rest of Team Beta otherwise known as Team Fork will trigger the IFF successfully, see how other recruiting efforts are going, experiment with the Derivation after we manage to pick up our digital jaw from the floor. We also have to facepalm for not really thinking about what would happen should we toss teenage girls together in an enclosed space and promoted team bonding.
>>20324090That first one we can't send to ourselves, because we'll have had to try it to know, and the timeloops are stable.Hell, the 4D comms of the Vonnies might make the second unreliable as well.
>>20324041"Dear Reimu, shut your stupid face. Love, Anne">Who Be?I'mma vote Minaka.

>>20324190Too bad its backfiring. Now I demand a tithing of blood for sitting through all this UGUU shit.
So ReADS, please tell me you've got something in place to keep us from solving everything with time messages. Because 'HEY FUTURE SELF WILL THIS PLAN WORK' is looking to be the go-to question.Maybe make it so information can't come out of nowhere. That still might not stop everything, but it's a start. Shit should not be broken because we got a lucky roll.

>>20325092Anne maybe, but they're all in college. I'm sure they've seen infomorphs in bodies before. Reimu has probly had to treat some of the more daring infomorphs.

>>20326263Hot damn you're touchy when it comes to your waifus. I was jokingly exaggerating the other anon's fears about time fuckery, but I guess that went over your head.
>>20326263It's just because homestuck is a bad reference that I think he's joking. In fact, he might be making fun of me. I'm the guy he's replying to, for reference.And yes, I suppose I am butthurt that the quest appears to be becoming confusing and too easy. How fucking horrid.

>>20326297I just said have fun in other threads, not eat shit and die.You're the one who trying to backpedal and say you were joking.>>20326337We don't even know how useful the time manipulations will be.

When did I ever imply that I wasn't joking. You're acting like I said this quest is the shittiest thing since New Jersey simply for making a joke at an anon's expense moreso than at the quest's.
This is clearly the best way to keep the thread alive until ReaDS gets here.Who are we going to pair Reimu with, so she's not so much of a third wheel?
>>20326434No, I'd rather just you post in threads you like rather then start complaining in this one because it's not to your liking anymore.Glad you know me so well from that one post!>Oh, the irony.

>>20326452Oh, she'll "fall in line" soon enough, to the understanding of Anne.Alternately, she'll be full of tsun for Icarus. Or maybe even some other girl.
>>20326452She's clearly tsundere for annie judging from the way she so readily prepared for sex with her when she thought she had been dosed with an aphrodisiac, therefore the only true solution is a three-way relationship.

>>20326506>Of blood.Oh I hope so.And after Minaka dies, Annie will have nobody to turn to except for Reimu. It might not be a healthy relationship, but it will be fun to watch it crash.
>>20326506Right, because everyone who complains does so in a constructive manner. I saw three shitposts and ask them to have fun elsewhere.>>20326452maybe... maybe she won't have a pairing? Maybe she'll just have friends(without benefits)?

To be honest, I'm actually kinda thinking Rick might not be evil, but probably smartest to keep it quietish.Also we should check if the survivors had secondary bodies, and keep an eye on Veritas.
>>20333515I'm not sure robots can blow rasberrys over IRC, but we should try.
>>20335006Didn't take long, time is a slut.
>>20335088Nah, we haven't raped time yet, but due to the stable time loops time already loves us because we are going to rape her until she loves it at some point in the future.
>>20335006Not yet, but once we do, it'll be retroactive. Timefuckery is weird like that.
>>20335095>>20335110And this is why timefuckery rarely ever goes well in any setting.
>>20335124All the more reason to be careful about who gets access to it.
>>20335088I lost my shit when I read this.
rolled 7 + 10 = 17>>20335073Sure they can. =P I feel so dirty.
Stop being so rapey.
>>20335095>>20335110But if time retroactively loves it before we start then it's not rape any more, is it?
>>20335246We're trying to keep the time loop stable. Time loves us in the present because we are going to rape her or from one perspective we have already raped it. So we'll just have to rape it hard enough that it goes from love to hate to love once again.
>>20335303It's stable if we just have a happy loving relationship without any rape because if time didn't love us we'd rape it until it did.
>>20335246>>20335303>>20335325Why is it time travel always leads to in and out of story circlejerks?
rolled 17 + 10 = 27All right, enough about raping time.
We might have the proof (Dadealus and Anne), but whether the means to turn the mathematical proof into applied science or whether it will remain a theoretical - if tantalizing - theory for the next 200 years or so is completely unknown.No, seriously, this might have been written by a centuries-old Anne while observing her grandchildren.
>>20335483Does it matter how long it takes to invent a time machine if you can mail yourself the blueprints once it's done?
>>20335564Nope, but we won't because we didn't, for some reason we will have learned later.
>>20335564You need the recieveing algorithm. At least for the method we have.
rolled 14 = 14Right now, we're not raping time till she likes it.Right now, we're killing time.
>>20335626We haven't even opened Anne's mail yet. We need to know the algorithm before we can receive shit.
>>20335646But time does not die when it is killed.
