The President would like a word with you."Thinking that this was the signal, you head back to the clocktower.There, at the base, you meet Hinagiku waiting for you."She's up in my office. This is your chance to talk to her." she tells you as she walks away."Thank you again Hinagiku-san."You ride the elevator up, unsure of just what's waiting for you.There she was standing on the balcony over-looking the school.She's grown from the lovely little girl you remember to a stunningly beautiful woman.Even if her back was turned to you, you are still sure that it's her.You would never forget that golden blonde hair that you had the pleasure of brushing so long ago.Its her alright, your first love, Athena Tenousou, A-tan.WAT SAY/DO?
Hello A-tan. You were absolutely correct. My parents are scum.>Fuck yeah, MSQ.
>>20588969I'm not all that familiar with the HnG canon (after following these threads since day one, this kind of surprises even me). I'm not sure how... familiar, I guess, we should be with her after not seeing each other in so long.What the hell. "It's good to see you again, Athena. Have you been well?"
>>20589035>I'm not all that familiar with the HnG canon (after following these threads since day one, this kind of surprises even me).same here, except I'm not surprised as to why; it's because I'm a lazy fuck.
rolled 39 = 39"Athena...I...Will you allow me to make love to you?"Don't be a faggot. Be direct.
>>20589035>>20589063Well, basically, if this follows the HnG canon more accurately, she'd claim that she doesn't know who we are, and then cry after we leave.To beat that, we have to hopefully shock her into talking to us by apologizing. Mostly because we actually recognize our parents are dicks, as opposed to normal Hayate who's too nice to point that out.
>>20588969"Hello A-tan. It's been a long time. I'm glad to finally meet you again."
>>20589063Reminds me of when I decided to read Shaman King. Read about 200 chapters, decided to stop for a bit. That was almost two years ago now.
>>20589098I read the whole series that existed at the time. I've just never read the ending because they released it a while after the actual manga ended.I just lost all interest in it, although, if I found it, I might reread it.
>>20588969Athena Tenousou, the girl that once stole your heart.The one you promised to spend forever with.The one that turned you into a butler.Your first master. Your first love.The first girl to have broken your heart. "It's good to see you again, Athena. Have you been well?" you ask as you step out of the elevator.She turns around, that golden mane dancing as she did."Excuse me?" She asks, "Who are you? Are you a new member of the student council? I was told that the President wanted to discuss some things with me and so I came hence."She doesn't seem to remember you.That's... unfortunate.WAT DO?[ ]Push it[ ]leave it at that
>>20589197Called it. Well, if she doesn't want to talk to us, she's probably not the way out.
>>20589197[x] Push it
>>20589197>[x]Push it"Please, Athe- no, A-tan. I'm sorry for [WHATEVER IT WAS THAT ENDED OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HER, I FORGET], but I've come for your help."
>>20589197[x]Push itCome on how many people do you meet that have naturally blue hair? Like maybe 3.Fuck this shit, were doing it a new way.
>>20589197http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCadcBR95oU[x] Push it real good.
>>20589197[ ]Push her, down the stairs.We need to desynchronise from Altair, otherwise we can't leave the Animus
>>20589197[x]leave it at that"I am Hayate Ayasaki, Nagi's new butler. I'm sorry, you must have forgotten all about me. My apologies for being so familiar."
>>20589197YOu push it. walking towards her and talking her hand in yours."Don't you remember me A-tan? It's me, Hayate! You know, the castle, the ring, the stone...""The what? Don't call me that!""Why? Don't you remember I gave you that nickname.""What? I... I don't know. I just don't like being called that..""A-tan please. try and remember me.""I don't know what you're talking about... Please leave.""A-tan. Remember me, please!" You grab her hand tighter."I don't know you! Let go!" she tries to shake you off but can't.**ROLLEM**>taking the 5th

>>20589502"Guards! Help me!" she yells as she moves to Hinagiku's desk and presses a button on the intercom.Pulling her to you, still desperate to make her remember, you say:"A-tan. Please, can't you really remember me? Don't you remember the time we spent in your castle? Those days when you trained me to be your butler?""Butler? I have no butler. Please, let me go."You see the elevator making it's way down the tower to pick someone up, most likely the security that A-tan summoned.YOu have about 2 more minutes until they get up here.WAT DO?[ ]Run away.

>>20589608We're superhuman. Jump out the window. land somewhere soft.
rolled 35 = 35>>20589608[x]Run away [alone]
>>20589608Run away with A-tan
[X]OtherJump out the window, with A-tan in your arms. Make sure you kiss her on the way down for extra shock value. Seriously guys, have NONE of you watched Inception? The only way off the rails is to put your head on them as the train runs over it.
rolled 4 = 4>>20589608[ ]Give upFuck it.
>>20589608Run away, get Nagi, do something out of character. Like just go somewhere else.
>>20589697I like the idea of doing something wildly out of character. Let's give it a shot.
>>20589764When it fails miserably will you finally give up on that stupid idea?
>>20589683Well, yes, if we die we'll be taken out of the simulation. And it'll be considered a failure.
>>20589802I know the huge gap in time between the two posts makes it seem like samefagging, but I assure you, I, the person you replied to, am not the same person that I replied to.
>>20589608[x]Give upSurrender, coolly, calmly, and without incident.
>3 for run away alone>2 for run away with A-tanYou relent and let go of her soft hand, the fear showing on her face making you do so."I'm sorry..." you say finally as you head over to the balcony and get up on the rails."I'll see you some other time A-tan""Wait...! Don't ju-" She tries to keep you from jumping but it's too late.You leap from the railing towards one of the cluster of trees below.Crashing, tumbling and breaking through branches, you hit the ground in relatively one piece.You stood up and brushed off the leaves and dirt clinging to your suit."Sooo.. things didn't go as planned I suppose?" Hinagiku, who happened to have been standing under one of the trees asks."Nope.""And you needed to JUMP OFF THE FREAKING CLOCKTOWER BECAUSE OF THAT? Are you crazy?""Yep." you answer simply.WAT DO NAO?
>>20589834It doesn't matter. My post is directed at the both of you, and to the other players that think simply outing out of character is going to get us out of this exercise.
>>20589845Yell "Im okay" and go see the police about our parents.
>>20589845Lay low from security, and check the time. See if there's time enough to check out Tokyo Tower. That place is always a magnet for odd things in any universe where it exists.If not, look through a directory of local bars and cafes that have the words Dancing and Feel.
>>20589850And what do you thinks going to get us out?
>>20589902A door or gateway that the Bureau uses, a Bureau operative that's not Tama or Hina, or fulfilling a specific objective, in order of likelihood.
>>20589845"A man in love does crazy things for the people he cares about."just glance at her a moment, before looking back at the clocktower, put your hands in your pocket, and start walking, "What is a butlet to do, i cant seem to stop dancing around, from one place to another, trying to fix this. You ever feel like that Hina? Stressed? Not knowing what to do, how to fix things, how to make them right again?"
>>20589902Using our mind to break through the simulation.We've had reactions when we tried earlier, we just need to try harder.
>>20589925I will support info mining from the constructs.
GUYSHEYGUYSWHAT IFNOW HEAR ME OUT ON THISWHAT IFWE HAT ATHENA
>>20589925i like this. it will probably make its way back to a-tan and well help us gather info
>>20589934But them 90's, can we really get them?
>>20589934I don't think that's going to work. For one, it would be an auto-fail, wouldn't it, since we broke the test rather than completing it. Second, I suspect that the Dude and the Director would have upped the security levels on the sims we're put into since our data manipulation ability has been analyzed and catalogued by Stahl.
>>20589963We have no Kraus, and we can't maintain a human construct.... or can we... where are those cat ears when you need them?
>>20589973Well, technically, our only instruction was "escape." If we crash the simulation, we did escape.
So did Hayate get over his PTSD over his life or do those episodes still occur? I probably took more amusement from those scenes than I should have.
>>20590012not as often since he got therapy.
>>20589845"A man in love does crazy things for the people he cares about."you start to walk away, "What is a butlet to do, i cant seem to stop dancing around, from one place to another, trying to fix this. You ever feel like that Hina? Stressed? Not knowing what to do, how to fix things, how to make them right again?""Err... What?" she seemed to have been too occupied thinking of something else to hear the rest of what you said."Nothing, it's nothing... Have a good day Hinagiku-san."You walk away from her and towards the school's gates, making sure to keep an eye out for any security personnel that might be coming after you.OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL WAT DO?>time is almost lunch
>>20590034Go for a stroll, take some time out.Obviously we are trying too hard at all this so switch over to holiday mode.
>>20590063oh hell no, dont want to wander too far.We're still on Yakuza Kill on sight statusMaybe we could go to Negi-Land? Negi's personal amusement park.We havent tried there yet.
>>20590034Grab a newspaper and look through it for anything suspicious that might be a clue on how to exit the simulation. Maybe read it at a small cafe. Assuming that we've already delivered lunch to our lady.
rolled 39 = 39>>20590034Look for the ring A-Tan gave us. The one our parents sold. she can't deny us if we have it.
>>20590080Except everything in this sim so far has pointed to us not being known at all, no one recognizes us, no yakuza have shown up and the more we try to Hayate our way out the worse things get.So let's just unhayate ourselves
>>20590088Since you had nothing else to do today other than wait for Nagi to get out of school, you head to the nearest combini and get a newspaper.Finding a nearby park and occupying a bench there, you began to look for anything that seemed odd about this world.**ROLLEM**>Considering the first 10

rolled 62 = 62>>20590257Here goes.
Hayate does not exist in this (simulated) iteration of whatever home canon he came from.>WILD SPECULATION TIMEPerhaps escaping from the simulation involves coming to terms with the fact that there are many universes which involve his home, but the majority of them may have nothing to do with him? Trying to insert one's self into a foreign universe is not something that the IDPKB would want its agents to do. In this, Hayate realizes that he is but one individual in a very large metaverse, and should learn to accept reality how it is and stop making the universe conform to his views. Even in the IDPKB, Hayate seems to actively try to draw everyone in and change them.>END WILD SPECULATION TIME
rolled 76 = 76>>20590257"Japanese self Defense Force still mobilized around the breech! Military hardware enters the cordon but amount seen entering would've overflowed area by now! What's going on?!"And the Hayate fought dragons.

>>20590358>>20590316>>20590298>>20590297You browse through the paper, and nothing in particular jumps out at you.You see reports on falling stock, actresses in scandals, minor crimes and the likes, but nothing earth-shattering like you expected.The only thing not mentioning was an ad for a new Nintendo rythm game for the Wii that said in bold white letters on a red background, DANCING! FEEL! MOVE!These, when combined with an out of place American STOP sign near the entrance of the park completes the enigmatic phrase STOP DANCING FEEL again.This is the most that you got out of this newspaper.WAT DO?[ ]Investigate the stop sign[ ]Investigate the game[ ]other

>>20590548Suicide is the option.
>>20590623>Ideas from the last couple threads>1. We might be supposed to "break out" of our habits, our fear-induced antics when confronted with our worst nightmare. Maybe we're supposed to do exactly the opposite of what we'd do normally if we were stranded back "home".>2. Maybe we're not supposed to do what really happens. Maybe we're getting a chance to kill our parents?>3. In the infinicon mission the waitress used bastardized moonspeak to get the attention of a full blooded japanese.>maybe the stop dancing in bad english means something similar, except we don't have a person to point to and say "I know what's going on!">if this is about raising meta-awareness, one idea i had last time was going to a comic book store, finding our friends natural mediums.So, we're probably supposed to kill our parents.
>>20590680Good ones, but there were two other things that caught my (>>20590548) eye while looking through the last couple threads. 1. Apologize for being so dense to the girl from middle school2. Become Meta-aware.
>>20590711Besides talking to Nishizawa, there was also the idea of going to a karaoke bar that might have those words in its name.
>>20590711And she might be at the park!>>20590680Remember Hydrofluoric acid won't eat through plastic, but it will metal and ceramic.
>>20590501You investigate the STOP sign.It really is out of place.Not only was it an English sign in the middle of a japanese city, it was also not placed in a logical place for a stop sign since there were no crosswalks or junctions near by.The sign was relatively new judging from the scratch-less appearance, and it also seems to have been pounded into the sidewalk instead of cemented into place.You check the back of the sign and find a local phone number which you jot down [03-3993-1578]finding nothing else on or near it, you leave the sign and head off.GO TO?WAT DO?
>>20590804Go to a payphone, if we have any petty cash, and make a phone call to that number.
>>20590804Phone booth and call the number I suppose.
>>20590804Go call the number I guess.If it ends up being for dancing lessons I'm gonna have to go and punch something.
rolled 88 = 88>>20590034Hay Gays I think LG is giving us hints.I know it's way out there but just take a look at post related.The specific part I'm talking about is:>i cant seem to stop dancing around, from one place to another, trying to fix thisMaybe we should do what we're told.Stop doing shit and feel or something.Feel for a way out with our mind, maybe.
>>20590804You find a payphone at the same combini you bought the newspaper from and dial the number.After a couple of rings, a heavily accented voice answers."Hello? Singpil residence, what can I do for you?""err... Uhhh... Hello? I was wondering where this number went... I found it somewhere and tried to call it I guess.. Who am I talking to?""This is Dan, Dan Singpil. So you found our number huh? Where?""I found it on a stop sign.""That's weird..""You don't know the half of it."SAY/DO anything?
>>20591031Dan SingpilDansing pilDancing feel?Bollywood dance number!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2dA8HEKD14
>>20591031Dan Singpil.DansingpilDancingfeel."So, Mr. Singpil, seeing as how weird this is, would you mind meeting, at least so that I can show you the stop sign that had your number? If you would, please come to the combini near the Academy."We're going to talk about the Bureau, now.
Dan Singpil?Stop dancing feel?We need to stop Dan and whatever he's planning
>>20591031We clearly must stop this guy. Go to his house, murder him.
I suggest we sit in the grass and commune with the universe for a long, long time.Long enough to "take twenty", so to speak.Become perfectly attuned to the nature of this reality, and gain woundrous insight.
>>20591031"So, Mr. Singpil, seeing as how weird this is, would you mind meeting, at least so that I can show you the stop sign that had your number? If you would, please come to the combini near Hakouo Academy.""I dunno. I kinda had an appointment later.""Just a little of your time sir.""I'm sorry, whoever you are, but I have no time for this. Sayoonahra."The line goes dead.WAT DO?
>>20591172We must find him, and Stop Dan Singpil.
>>20591172We need to do a reverse lookup on the phone number and figure out where his house is located.We'll need to find it and observe Dan.Also, don't jump to conclusions: "Stop Dancing Feel" could just as well refer to finding Dan Singpil's number on a STOP sign, rather than our need to stop him from something.
Wait guys we also have to look up that nintendo game. I think we should try that before hunting down some guy.
Y'know LG, this quest used to be fun.But now I'm bored so I'm going to go do other stuff.
>>20591177>>20591219>find Dan SingpilYou take a look at the phone number in your hand and try to do a reverse search on it.The phone-books available at the combini, though obsolete, should be helpful.You purchase one of them and look through them to try and find this enigmatic Dan.A quick 15 minutes later, you find the number listed under a different name but in a neighborhood nearby.Wasting no more time, you pocket the phone-book and head to the place.-------------------------------------------------The address listed in the phonebook was a shopping district. The narrow street, lined with shops on either side, was covered by a transparent roof to keep the elements out.The Singpil residence itself was part of small set of apartments build above a meatshop.You knock on the door calling out to Dan."Y-you! You were on the phone!" he calls out through the door when he recognized your voice "Why are you here?"WAT DO/SAY?
>>20591319Don't let the captcha hit you in the ass on the way out.>>20591172Dan is obviously hiding something. Let's ignore it because we're pretending to not be paranoid. How about we check out that game.
rolled 57 = 57>>20591380Kill him.
rolled 14 = 14>>20591380Kill him.
>>20591380I was hoping to just observe Dan, not confront him."Oh, I was actually about to buy some beef from the store downstairs. I was hoping you'd reconsider my previous offer."
>>20591380I wanted to show you the sign, Dan.Don't you want to see the sign?
>>20591380Leave him alone. Check out the game.
>>20591380Because I am having the weirdest day and so far your number being on a stop sign seems to be the weirdest so I figured if I started there and worked backwards it might start making sense
>>20591380What was the different name the number was listed under?
>>20591380"Oh, I was actually about to buy some beef from the store downstairs. I was hoping you'd reconsider my previous offer.""No!" he shouts, "Go away!""But mr.Singpil, I just want to.. I dunno talk.""talk about what? About why my number is on a stop sign? I don't know anything about that. now please, if you have nothing better to do, please leave me alone!"[ ]Leave [ ]Leave but ________[ ]Stay
>>20591468[x]Leave but ________"Alright, I'll leave. I suppose you've never heard of the IDPKB, either. Good bye."Leave, but find a place where we can observe the apartments, and see when he leaves. We can tail him then.
>>20591468Might as well check out the game.We can come back and harass Singpil later.Or hunt down some guy named Dancing Phil.
>>20591496>>20591502You leave the man alone, making sure to remember his address, and head out of the shopping district.This is all going nowhere. It's been a long empty week in this world, interacting with people that seemed like nothing more than incomplete copies of themselves.You need to get out. You need to break out.But still, you have no idea just how to accomplish that.You have some leads, true, but they might not even be that.Your last encounter with the phrase Stop Dancing Feel, leading you to what appeared to be a dead end.There must be something you're missing. Something that's been right infront of you all this time.Still not knowing what that was though, you decide to check out the game from the newspaper.You head back to the school and dutifully await your master's dismissal.Making sure to avoid the scrutiny of the security personnel that might still be after you.After picking Nagi up, you bring her home on the bike with you."Milady," you ask as you parked the gold-plated bike "have you heard of this game?" You pull out the paper and show her the ad."OH, I have that. We have controlling shares for the company that made that. I got sent a copy about 5 days ago... It's a dancing game though, so I had not much interest in it."[ ]Can I see it?[ ]Can I have it?[ ]Can we play it?
>>20591615[x]Can we play it?Let's see if there's something about this game.
>>20591615[X ]Can we play it?
>>20591615Want to play it when we get home?
>>20591615"can we play it?" you ask your tiny master"Err... sure, but I'm not very good at this kind of stuff.""No worries milady, I, Ayasaki Hayate, will do my best to assist you.""Mhmmm, okay! Let me go get changed first and then we'll play!"----------------------------------------------------------------later, you head to Nagi's gaming room to find the console all set up and the game ready to go.There, Nagi was waiting for you."Okay Hayate, let's play!"**ROLLING for dancing/playing clue digging**considering first 10
I feel like this is a stupid question, but did we ever try asking the Dude what we were even supposed to do in this sim? He never gave us a briefing, just told us to escape. I thought it was weird that we'd gone all this time without checking in with him. Would it be too much to ask to see if we can mentilate him?What's the worst that could happen? We face-palm at the ease of the mission or he doesn't answer. No harm, no foul, right?

>>20591719You and Nagi begin to play the game.It's a rhythm based dancing game as expected, and you managed to play it fairly well. You mistress, on the other hand, what with her poor physiology and bad reflexes, sucked at it.The game itself was a colorful almost disco-ish world where you had to mirror the in-game avatar's movements with your own.Like as expected from many japanese games, it came with its own liberal sprinkling of Engrish words used for emphasis."YEAAAAAAH! DANCING!" the in-game announcer said after you cleared each section of the game."FEEEEEEEL!" he shouted for every combo accomplished.At the third song or so, your mistress having had enough physical activity for the day, collapses in tiredness.WAT DO[ ]Keep playing[ ]Stop playing, see to Nagi

I just need to rest a bit.""Want me to get you anything to drink?""No... I'm okay. Continue playing, I want to see you beat this game that made a fool of me.""But Milady!""Hayate! This is an order! Beat this game for me!""Yes, milady! I will do as you say."You put her on one of the nearest couches and continue, proceeding to clear stage after stage of the game.At the final stage, a hard, fast song titled BREAKOUT that tested your reaction time, you barely manage to succeed and finally clear the game."Milady! I have successfully finished it!" you turn to your mistress but find her sleeping on the couch.You turn back to the game to save your progress when you're surprised to find a familiar face on the screen.It's Mike. Or at the very least, a CGI gorilla that looked like Mike.

>>20592031Well, at least we got the fucking hint we wanted.I still want to go kick the shit out of Dancing Phil though.
I can't help but think that this is actually "you failed this test" because we engaged too much in looking for exits within the simulation itself.
>>20592124Yeah I'm fairly certain we failed, specially in LG's eyes atleast.
OK, no A-Tan clues, but at least progress.My bet is that the whoel simulation went bonkers and was 10 times harder when it was supposed to be and the whole STOP DANCING FEEL was the bureau's attempt to break through the whole mess and get us out.Also No Science/Sousuke?
