>Previous threads can be found at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psion%20Quest>Hovering behind you, steepling his manipulators and cackling in a dastardly way, was Einstein. You could check his data at any time, you knew: http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8The year is 2573, and you're speaking with a shirtless young man who says he's just traveled in time."Um, Einstein, read out that display for me." Damien asked, his voice trembling."Ha-ha! I shall help you... this time!" Einstein said. "Inhabitant: Damien Ruste, Time Remaining: Fifteen minutes. Current body temperature: Ninety eight point six.""I'm still in there." Damien said. "... I want to open it, but.. I'm scared of what might happen."
>>23804595"...I wouldn't do it yet. Your, um, current self doesn't know...you can do that. And you haven't gone yet so, um, you you might disappear. Next time though, you'd be aware of the ability, so it should be fine to talk to yourself or whatever."
"Whoah. That's...almost more intense that what I was doing.I was ALL the technology in the universe. At the same time. Even alien technology that hasn't been discovered yet. Even natural crystals that work as circuit-boards a galaxy away.If your thing wasn't so awesome I'd punch you for interrupting it.Anyway, you should go ask the researchers what the implications of meeting yourself are. I'm sure if you can tell them how it works, they'll be able to figure out SOMETHING. Oh and be sure to tell Max about this - he'll absolutely love being proved right."
Rolled 22>>23804595Don't cause a paradox. Unless you have already been contacted by yourself, don't contact you past self. Let's talk with the researchers if they have any nifty ideas about causality.
>>23804595"Interrupting yourself now would prevent you from gaining that ability, which will probably do all sorts of nasty things to causality. So don't do it. This time anyway. Actually, you probably shouldn't do it until the researchers know about this."
>>23804595"Um, don't risk it. I've found that is usually the best course of action.""Nice last name, by the way, you never told me."
"... I wouldn't do it yet." You say. "Your, um, current self doesn't know... you can do that. And you haven't gone yet, so, um, you might disappear. Next time though, you'd be aware of the ability, so it should be fine to talk to yourself or whatever."Then you saw the display beep, and suddenly it said 'Inhabitant: Empty, Time Remaining: Fifteen minutes.'Damien was quiet."Why would I want to talk to myself?" He asked."Whoah." You say, and look at the display again - it was empty. "That's... almost more intense than what I was doing.""What were you doing?" He asked, and started reaching for the shirt hanging on the curtain rod."I was... looking at all the technology in the universe." You say. "At the same time. Even alien technology that hasn't been discovered yet. Even natural crystals that work as circuit boards a galaxy away. If your thing wasn't so awesome, I'd punch you for interrupting it.""You'd punch a blind man?" Damien asked, tossing his shirt on."Anyway, you should go ask the researchers what the implications of meeting yourself are." You say. "I'm sure if you can tell them how it works, they'll be able to figure out *something*.""But I don't know how it works." Damien said. "I still can't use clairvoyance, but I was just thinking about earlier, and then I was suddenly... well, there. I don't even know the implications, or if I'll even be able to do it again."
>>23804749shrug "It could be worth to explore it and talk about it. They may give you an exercise that can replicate this effect."
>>23804749"Well if you can figure out how to control it, it means you could change things after they actually happen. Probably. I imagine changing yourself in some way would be bad though."
>>23804749"Well, you did it once, so obviously it's possible. And if the researchers know about it they can try to figure out what will happen if you accidentally cause a paradox or something."
>>23804749"Hey, can do it once, you can do it again. You should make notes of what you were thinking about as quick as possible before you forget too much, in case it's helpful to figure things out."
>>23804749"If it's been done once, then it can be done again. I don't really have any advice for you here, because I don't really do the whole future sight thing."
>>23804749hey maybe that what I did when I "dreamed"of the attack
>>23804749"The implications are massive. It's *time travel*. I know we give the middle finger to known physics regularly, but that's crazy."
>>23804817Nah, there weren't two of us when we came back.
>>23804749"Hmm... I wonder how time travel works. If it has to have happened so that you'll do it, or if you can just go and change things and the universe's timeline adapts to it, or if it'll just split off another timeline..."
"Hey, if you can do it once, you can do it again." You say. "And if the researchers know about it, they can try to figure out what will happen if you accidentally cause a paradox or something.""It probably just adds a whole new dimension to the way the future changes." Damien said. "In that the past can change, too. It'd probably either give all of you headaches like I get. Or none of you would even remember the, uh, original timeline thing."He shrugged. "I don't want to risk it.""The implications are massive." You say. "It's *time travel*. I know we give the middle finger to known physics regularly, but that's crazy."Damien just sighed. "Any chance you could walk me to the researchers' common room?"You call up Einstein's map, and start to walk."Hmm... I wonder how time travel works. If it has to have happened so that you'll do it, or if you can just go and change things and the universe's timeline adapts to it, or if it'll just split off another timeline...""... My visions are probably related to it, I think." Damien said- he looked like he wanted to reach out and grab your hand, unsure about walking through the hall. "I'm... not sure why I think that. It's just intuition."
>>23804895Take his hand."Maybe that's what you see in your vision? Every timeline that could have happened?"
>>23804895"Our intuition is usually right about things like that."
>>23804895sigh and take his hand."Come on."
>>23804895"How old were you when you developed your clairvoyance?"
>>23804976He didn't even know he was blind until he learned about psionics.
"Come on." You say, and grab his hand, dragging him a bit faster. "Maybe that's what you see in your visions? Every timeline that could have happened?""No, no." He said. "I only see one thing. One thing that changes when people change things based on what I see.""How old were you when you developed your clairvoyance?""Ever since I was born, I could see." Damien said. "Until I got a medical checkup and they were confused that my ocular nerves were deformed, though I could still see. I've been able to see the future since... a few weeks ago, back when I saved Max. That was the first time."
>>23804991"Well, in that case, maybe what you see is your brain, in the future, transmitting parts of your consciousness backwards through time, which would explain why it changes when you alter things."
>>23804991"Can't you get transgened to fix the blindness?"
>>23805126yea ask this. I am little confused why his blindness can't be fixed.
"Well, in that case, maybe what you see is your brain in the future, transmitting parts of your consciousness backwards through time, which would explain why it changes when you alter things."Damien thought about it."... I've never seen myself dead." He said. "I've never died in any of my visions." He shivered involuntarily, and eventually, you were standing in front of the researchers' lounge."Can't you get transgened to fix the blindness?""I don't even need to be transgened. Just basic surgery and therapy would be good enough." Damien said, and shrugged "I just haven't gotten around to it. I'll do it eventually. I can already see most of the time, though."You reached forward and hit the button next to the door. It chimed, and Professor Neva was standing there, glasses on. She wasn't wearing a labcoat, which felt strange to you."Ruste, Leery." She said. "Can I do anything for you?""I just traveled in time." Damien said. "Check the isolation chamber logs and the cameras outside of the chamber if you don't believe me."The professor was silent for some time.Then she closed the door. A few minutes later, a rougishly handsome, unshaven man in a labcoat stepped out. "Come on, Damien." He said. Then he nodded to you. "I don't think we've been introduced. I'm Jason. This guy's counselor. You're, uh... which one... Summer? Anna?"Then he grinned."Ah, I know. You're Sarvesh's sister! Nice to meet you, Pheles."
>>23805227"Dohohoho, you sure know how to joke, mr...?#
>>23805227"And you must be incredibly silly."
>>23805227"are you and professor Neva dating?" >right back at ya funny man
>>23805227"Hahaha funny." give him unimpressed look.
>>23805227"Yes, I'm a centaur in a tiny human suit. Nice to meet you."
>>23805227"Pleased to meet you, Jason."
Error beep on his personacom
"Yes, I'm a centaur in a tiny human suit." You say, giving him an unimpressed look. "Nice to meet you, Jason."He nodded. "You as well, Heather. Anyway. Time travel." He said, turning back to Damien. "Me and the professor took a look at the logs, and it did look like there are two of you. Your body, uh, the one in the chamber, didn't show any calorie loss until right before he vanished, and ended up with the precise same biometrics as the body that, uh, appeared."He turned to you and back to Damien."You with me here?""Not entirely. What are you implying?" Damien asked."Well, we're implying that you didn't manifest a second body and demanifest your own later, like the professor thought." Jason said. "It looks like it's legitimate time travel. Which means the ramifications are *astounding*. I mean, Anna's entropy reversal is one thing, but time travel, twisting around cause and effect... I mean, whoah.""So uh, do you have any idea how it works? Or paradox?" Damien asked."... Objectively, there is no way to know. No tests we could run, no experiments to run, nothing at all we can do." Jason said. "The most we can do is record everything we can. That's the problem. Everything... is subjective. To you. You're the one who has the ability, so you likely have some sort of... I don't know... inertia."He turned to you. "Any questions?"
>>23805439"Nope. I'm just helping Damien whilst his sight recovers."
>>23805439"So no idea if he has to have already gone back and changed something so that he can go back and change it, or if he'll end up making another timeline or anything like that then?"
>>23805439"Well, I had a theory that that's how his precognition works, his brain sending signals to itself back through time, but I'm not a researcher, so..."
>>23805439"Oh man, you have to check if you can bring anything with you when you do it."
>>23805439"Lots. But like you just said, no answers."
"Well, I had a theory that that's how his precognition works, his brain sending signals to itself back through time, but I'm not a researcher, so...""Probably more elegant than the 'quantum ultra-predictive supercomputer' idea, actually." Jason said. "If that's it, then that suggests a few things about Damien's time travel. One being that there's merely a single timeline that's mutable and shifting.""So no idea if he has to have already gone back and changed something so that he can go back and change it, or if he'll end up making another timeline, or anything like that, then?""We have no idea. Because if he does go back in time, then he might end up in a different timeline. And if he did, then we won't know anything relevant." He said. "Though I do intend on giving you, Damien, a password for all of the logs, so that you can go back through them and see if anything is different from what you remember it as.""That might be useful." He responded."Also, all previous passwords, and I'll add the future passwords to a list for you." He said."Oh man, you have to check if you can bring anything with you when you do it." You say."I already did. I brought my pants." Damien said."Good man." Jason said. "Life advice; Never lose your pants. Your pants are the most important thing on your person."
>>23805439"Nah, Oh I found a perfect crystal lattice a few galaxies, um..."Point finger"That way.""Sorry, I just want some attention."
>>23805575"I thought the most important thing on your person is your towel."
>>23805602Definitely a towel.You can even wrap it around your waist and use it instead of pants.
>>23805575"Hey! I also experienced something cool.I managed to sense ALL kinds of tech in this universe. Like an alien crystal lattice in a different galaxy. OR an implant that floats in space just waiting to be picked up."
>>23805575"I think I'm going to go train up a bit on the TK array. I'll leave Einstein with you in case you need to get around anymore, Damien."
>>23805602>>23805602this say this and go on about useful they are
>>23805575"That is not how you pronounce towel."
>>23805575we should relay our experience in the isolation chamber to our scientist.it's not time travel but we could sense all tech in direction, at a distance of forever.should thank Jilly for her advice.
"That is not how you pronounce towel." You say."... this is going to be an inane argument, won't it?" Damien asked."It is how you pronounce pants." He responded."Well, Damien, seems your clairvoyance is coming back. Or they're predictable." Damien mumbled to himself."The most important thing on your person is your towel. You can wrap it around your waist and use it instead of pants, you can dry things, you can use it as a rope, you can cover your mouth to be safe from noxious fumes..." You say."There's one thing a towel can't do that pants can. Aside from have pockets." Jason said. "Keep your dignity. You can beg, borrow, or steal a personacom or a towel, but without pants, you're without dignity."He gave you a grin."I think I'm going to go." You say. "I'll leave Einstein with you in case you need to get around anymore, Damien.""Alright." Damien said, and nodded. "Thank you."The two of them made their way down the hall, going somewhere. It's only an hour after class by now, and dinner wasn't for another four.>Where do you go?
>>23805725Telekinesis practice range.To practice the most useful skill.
>>23805725report the crystal computers a galaxy over
>>23805725go back into the isolation chamber to check out those crystals and shit again, maybe we can talk to aliens?
>>23805725What >>23805751 said, and after that to get some food in the cafeteria.
>>23805779Don't forget Dave's spine, it's out there too.
>>23805797You just blew my fucking mind
First things first."Einstein, send-" You say, and pause.Oh.Instead you pull up your omnitool, and quickly write up a message to Dr. Manus, about the wild crystal, and the other things you'd seen in the isolation chamber, and you end the note with a mention that you plan on going up to the telekinesis array. Message sent, you... go up to the telekinesis array."Oh, hello." Keen said, with a wave. "We've gotten to the point with TK that we don't need the researchers here anymore. Just, uh, let 'em have it." He said, waving his arm to the array.>Finesse? Strength? Something else with TK?>also, roll for practice.
Rolled 77>>23805874Strength, bust this shit down
Rolled 84>>23805874Rapid changes from one target to the next.
Rolled 2>>23805874Finesse, like that one were we balanced the weight between multiple arrays.
Rolled 49>>23805874Rolling for power+control, specifically trying to use TK on multiple things in different way simultaneously.
Rolled 56>>23805893>>23805897So psychic boxing?
Rolled 14>>23805874Finesse-with-strengthThings like finely scaling our strength and otherwise combining strength and finesse
Rolled 76>>23805946This but with a better roll
Focusing on the array, you start trying to widen your finesse, getting more control over the ability. You start moving spheres of the array individually, trying to do so either precisely as possible, or by moving as many things as possible. After getting up to moving six objects individually, you mind eventually grows fuzzy, and then you can only move five properly, and eventually, four. It wasn't a failure of a session in any way, it was just rather... lackluster."Here're your snacks." Keen said, giving you a smoothie and a biscuit. "Ooh, also, Manus heard I had a cat, so he asked for this for you." He said, and out of his pocket pulled out...A large, airtight canister, full of catnip."You'd be amazed by the way you forget things in your pockets when you make your way to work - especially when work is a several dozen lightyears away."
Rolled 17>>23805920Hah, this sounds cool.
>>23805970"Thanks, Keen. How have things been?"
>>23805970"Huehuehuehue. Thanks, Keen."Let's go find Summer and Anna.
Rolled 96>>23805970Hehe"Thanks!"Let's go find Summer.
Rolled 75>>23805970"You have done a great deed today."
Doesn't catnip makes cats horny?
>>23806064>dis gon be good.
"Huehuehuehue." You giggle, taking it in hand and stowing it in your bag. You notice that it doesn't have a label, and one end just... twists off. "You have done a great deed today. Thanks, Keen.""... Be careful." He said, and chuckled, as you make your way out of your room.You find Summer and Anna in your room, talking about the Ishelda, Anna sitting in a manifested chair, while Summer and her manifestation sat on her bed."Hey, Heather." Summer said.Anna gave you a wave.
>>23806110"Hey. Anna, where'd you put the alcohol?"
I'm already calling this experiment as a grand failure, and Summer doesn't even react to it (or only mildly)
>>23806110Greetings fair ladies.I have returned, and I bring gifts.Anna, is that little something something available, for now would be the time.
>>23806110"Hey! Hope whatever you two did today was more productive than what I did, cause things got pretty frustrating towards the end."
"Greetings, fair ladies." You say. "I have returned, and I bring gifts." You say. "Hey, Anna, where'd you put the alcohol?""Mostly in my room." She said. "And here and there.""Alcohol?" Summer asked. "Aren't we too young?"Anna grinned. "The things you can get as an ex-mercenary." She said. "Also, you're technically an adult, biologically."Summer sighed. "You make me feel old.""Anyway, you want me to go grab it?" Anna asked. "Should I also grab someone else?"
Rolled 30>>23806218"Nah, it's girls only night."
>>23806236Jilly is sort of a girl.Can she drink alcohol?
>>23806218"Hmmm...I'd feel bad leaving anyone out, but who knows if everyone's free, and obviously we'd have to move since this room can't fit 6 people, much less Sarvesh. Plus, do we even have anything for Jilly? I don't know if she can imbibe/get drunk on alcohol."
>>23806248>I have no mouth but I must drink
>>23806248Oh yea, I forgot that Jilly existed.Invite her then.
>>23806218"You grab it. I'd say grab Jilly, too, but I don't know if alcohol will even affect her, or if she'll get sick from it. Also, Summer, I got this! *Produce catnip* Have you ever tried catnip before?"
>>23806275>Whoops, should be"Go grab it.
>>23806218We should probably avoid getting Sarvesh drunk until this issue with Damien is resolved, and Max would be a total buzzkill.Invite Jilly though, if she can even drink, if not, she'll probably enjoy being here anyway.
>>23806218Exabyte, do uplifts have extended life spans?If not you're making me sad, right now.
>>23806291He answered that. Some do. Max doesn't.
>>23806291They do, if I remember.
>>23806291He said Summer was engineered for that but Max doesn't because he was a late uplift by a crazy amateur terrorist group.
>>23806291I think it was said that early uplifts like Summer do, but late uplifts like Max don't.
>>23806218"Your choice, but, I've got a gift for Summer!""Well, I hope it's a gift."
>>23806291>They don't, no. The average uplifted tiger could live up to 30-40 years, with modern medical science.>Summer, however, has been transgened to have an extended lifespan. So yes, she'll live as long as a human."Hmm..." You say. "Do we even have anything for Jilly? I don't even know if she can get drunk on alcohol.""She can." Anna said. "We've talked about it. Her and her mom went out to go drinking once. Well, not drinking, more of 'absorbing', but yeah, she can.""Invite Jilly, and go grab it. It's girls only night.""Okay. I'll be back!" Anna said, and got to her feet."Also, summer, I got this!" You say, and pull the canister out of your bag."What is it?" Summer asked."Have you tried catnip before?" You ask."... No...?" Summer asked. "Does that even work on tigers? I thought it was only tiny housecat things."
>>23806353"I have no idea, and neither did the researchers."
ALEXGET ALEXTHAT WAY SOMEONES POWERS DON'T GO WILDLY OUT OF CONTROL
>>23806353"I guess we'll need to do some experimenting then!"
>>23806353"I have no idea! We'll have to find out."
>>23806353"let's test it in the name of science?""if you want of course."
>>23806353"I saw a video on the futuretubes of a bunch of big cats in a zoo enjoying bags full of the stuff. Dunno if it'll work on you specifically, but I figured it was worth a shot."
>>23806391http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tklx3j7kgJYForgot my link.
>>23806353"It works on all types of cats, but I don't know whether it works on uplifts."
>>23806353"We shall see."
"I have no idea!" You say. "We'll have to find out. If you want, of course.""Okay." She said, and twisted it open with a paw.Then she sniffed at it, warily, and then her nose started shaking."IT SMELLS LIKE REALLY GOOD." She said. "It's everywhere!"She tried licking it, and knocked the cap off, sniffing and licking at it so more.Anna came back, Jilly slithering in behind, around the time Summer was rolling around on her back, giggling uncontrollably about being dizzy."Anna!" She said, legs curled into the air. She kicked a leg once or twice, and started purring.
>>23806477"Catnip!"This should be said the same way Ishelda says "Magic!" of course.
>>23806477"Catnip confirmed as functional on tigers.""I guess the Ishelda can wait one more day, Anna."
>>23806477"Hopefully you won't get hyper-stimulated by all that 'nip."
>>23806477Close the lid."Now don't use to much, you're starting without us Summer."
"Catnip!" You say."Catniip~, heheheheh." Summer said, rolling to her feet, and ramming the side of her head into yours, bowling you back on your bed. You close the lid, and stow it away.Anna was silent. Then she sighed."Summer, can you manifest me a table? Well, never-""I CAN DO THAT." Summer said, and focused.A table appeared. Its legs also had the rigidy of cooked noodles, and flopped down. Anna lifted up half of the table, experimentally, and the entire surface wobbled like jello."Um."Jilly flashed yellow and started giggling."You want to start with mixed drinks, or shots?" Anna asked. You were mildly distracted by the fact that summer was now pinning you to your bed with her paws, sniffing at your face and hair.
>>23806556"Mixed drinks. Shots are kinda strong to be starting with, aren't they?"
>>23806556"Haha, sorry Anna, I didn't know it would effect her so quickly."
>>23806556"Um, shots, I guess. Nothing too heavy though!"
>>23806556"Whatever you think is best."
>>23806556"mix something for me while i escape certain fluff."
>>23806556"Well I don't have any experience, so why don't you recommend something."
>>23806556"also remember to have your bio reader equipped!"
>>23806556"Got any recommendation herr kommandant?"
We could install a L/RADAR on Einstein?
"Mix something for me while I escape." You say. "Shots are kinda strong to be starting with, aren't they?""Good point." Anna said. "Jilly, you want anything in particular?""Nothing in particular. Just make sure it dosn't have dairy.""Also, remember to have your bio reader equipped!" "I do." Anna said.Summer giggled again, and then started licking at your face and eyes."Blech. You taste like sweat." She said. Then she continued licking at you."You want some help?" Jilly asked."Yes!" Summer said. "This would be easy with all your tongues.""I um... meant Heather." Jilly said. "What are you even trying to do?""... I don't know." Summer said, climbed off of you, and chuffed.While you wipe off your face, Anna sets out a drink in front of you."This should be pretty sweet for you. And Jilly, here."
>>23806664"Thanks! What is it?"
>>23806664Drink it, then scritch Summer.
>>23806664"Thanks, Anna. You make a great bartender."
>>23806664"Well, here goes nothing!"
>>23806664Pat fluffy tiger.
>>23806664easy does it, let's take our time drinking it.
>>23806664Time to find out if the Ballmer Peak affects psions as well as programmers.
"Well, here goes nothing!" You say, and take a sip. It was both sweet and bitter, and the smell seemed to make your nose bubble - but it tasted kind of like coffee. "What is it?""Kahlua, Vodka and then some sugary soda and a bit of cream." Anna said, and upended her drink.Jilly twisted her tail around, and simply poured her drink into her 'lap'. It was a rather strange sight.You start patting Summer, scratching at her ears and fur, and she started purring. For a moment, you see a strange swarm of Somethings floating around Summer, half-manifested from her mind. "She's only semiconscious." Jilly said, and tilted her head. "It's rather strange."
>>23806772"let's keep her off catnip for now, seems like it did quite a number on her.">sleep time.>goodnight gentlemen.
>>23806772"Oh dear, I didn't think the catnip would have this quick and strong of an effect."
>>23806772"Maybe in future...not so much of the stuff."
>>23806772"Next time, it'll just have to be a spoonful of the stuff, rather than the entire container."
"Let's keep her off catnip for now. Seems like it did quite a number on her.""You gave her too much, I think." Anna said.The Somethings crystallized... and Heather was sitting there, wearing the same thing you were, scratching Summer's belly. The redhaired girl giggled, and grabbed Summer's paw, playing with squishing the pads."... That's really strange." Anna said.Summer started scraping her cheek against the floor, rubbing her whiskers up against them. Her purrs grew stronger, and the manifestation Heather's hair and clothing started to melt, drooping downwards, before resolidifying.
>>23806826She's wearing her biometric scanner right?
>>23806826"Oh dear, she's tripping out."
>>23806826"...That's creepy."Throw some real clothes on manifested Heather.
>>23806826"Summer! Manifest an Anna-clone too!"
"Oh dear." You say, and grab some real clothes for the manifestation."... That's creepy." When you try to put them on her, she suddenly grabbed you into a hug."You've been really really nice to me." Heather said, giggling. "I just... I just want to say thank you. You're a nice person."And then the identical copy of you kissed you on the lips, pushing her face against yours.
>>23806891Hands up, don't move, eyes wide.
>>23806891ok. Heather for waifu is a go.
>>23806891Don't freak out.
>>23806891Freeze! Don't move, maybe it will go away.
>>23806911THIS. A MILLION TIMES, THIS.
>>23806891Heather for waifu.Don't struggle, let the shock of it overcome us.
>>23806891Self-waifu is best waifu.
>>23806891It's not gay, it's masturbation!someone had to say it
>>23806891Definitely too much cat-nip
Your body locks up, and you freeze, eyes wide."Anna! You're nice too!" The manifestation said, and Anna bolted toward the door.The manifestation, already in Anna's form, was there first, pulling her into a hug and rubbing her cheek against hers"And Jilly! I need to get to know you better!" The manifestation said, the legs of Anna's forms becoming a big tail to wrap around her, and the somethings came by again, the manifestation (and the table) evaporating entirely.Summer just purred, rubbing her head against her own pillow by now, lying on her back.
>>23806963"...Anna, Jilly, we are never to speak of this. Especially not to Damien."
>>23806963*giggle*"Way too much catnip."
>>23806963"New rule. No overdosing on catnip."
>>23806963"I need to forget about this. More booze, please."
>>23807029Heather isn't THAT drunk.
>>23806963Upend our drink
You start giggling. there wasn't much else to do, but giggle. Jilly flashed yellow, and Anna tried and failed to frown.Summer started drooling, licking at the pillow, and then her eyes closed entirely, and the half-made manifestations vanished."... She fell asleep." Jilly said."Anna, Jilly, we are never to speak of this. Especially not to Damien.""Agreed." Anna said, flatly.Jilly just nodded."I need to forget about this. More booze, please."And then, suddenly, you were somewhere else.The enormous bed, covered in stuffed animals of all sorts was on one end of the room, pink wallpaper covering the walls. From the window, green light filtered through the curtains, casting everything in a ghastly green. There was a simple door out, and dressers and shelves covering everything.On one of the walls, pinned there, was a child's scrawling of two stick figures - one with black hair, the other with yellow, holding hands.You weren't on the station anymore."... The booze is still here." Anna said, standing next to a dresser, on the top of which, alcoholic concoctions sat. She held out a full glass. "Here. I'm too sober for this."
>>23807067"As am I."Down a few drinks for good measure.
>>23807067Peek out of the door."So who's psionic bullshit caused this? I think I'm still mostly sober..."
>>23807067"I think...I think Summer just manifested her entire room here. The one she grew up in. That or we've been teleported several lightyears, which I find less likely. Get me another drink."
>>23807067"I don't even care anymore."Slam back the drank
>>23807067"This is so weird. Is this...Summer's house?"Are Jilly and Summer here?
>>23807088You know, if that's the case we should be worried that she could overtax herself. After all she's high as hell, she might be able to exceed the safe amount of calories used.
>>23807086It's summers old room.
"I don't even care anymore." You say, and take a deep drink, the drink Anna had given you much stronger than the last one. "This is so weird. Is this... Summer's house?""I think so." Jilly said. "Where's Summer?"Anna checked under the bed, and into the pile of stuffed animals. "Not here."Jilly pulled open the curtain, and you gasped.Outside, was quite obviously the surface of a small moon with an atmosphere. In the sky, almost covering all of the sky, was an enormous violet gas giant."... Did we just teleport?" Anna asked.
>>23807152I shirtanly hope not.
>>23807152Open the door and find out.
>>23807152"Maybe the window is just a flat picture."
>>23807152"...I hope not. I wouldn't want to try and explain this to Summer's parents."
>>23807152"I think we did, and Summer is gone, I didn't know any of us could teleport stuff other than Sarvesh."
>>23807152"Given that that's more of Sarvesh's thing, I'd hazard an uneducated estimation that she's manifesting all this, kind of like full-sensory VR"
>>23807178I don't even think Sarvesh can teleport lightyears away.
>>23807152"I really, really hope not. That would be awkward, and we'd have to take a taxi back to the Institute."
>>23807182"Got a phone?"
>>23807152time travel? or in her dream Damien just time traveled so who knows ?
>>23807152"Shit, I don't even have Einstein with me."
>>23807197>>23807190Actually, we can test that! Try to contact Einstein via personacom.
"Well, earlier today Damien did time travel. And then I was all of the technology in the universe at the same time. So why not teleport several dozen/hundred/thousand lightyears?Although I suppose this means we'll need a ride back to the station."
"... I certainly hope not." You say, your tongue fuzzier than normal. "I wouldn't want to try and explain this to Summer's parents. Maybe the window is just a flat picture."Jilly opened it, and took a deep breath. You heard honking, and looking down, you can see the rest of the city, complete with driving cars. You smell a bit of smog, and the smell of a populated city."Got a phone?" You ask."My implant isn't responding." Anna responded.You pull up your omnitool. and get a no coverage response. Apparently you couldn't access anything."Thummer!" You hear a young girl yell, and pull open the door. You see a young girl, maybe nine years old, barge into the room. She walked right past all of you, and peeked under the bed. She looked like she was missing her two front teeth... and then walked *through* Jilly to look at the window, and to pull it shut again. She gave a sigh, and stomped out of the room. "Thummer!" she called again, running out of the room.
Heey. Wait a minute. Didn't Dave n' Company find a perfectly natural, crystaline quantum computer that became Amy's brain? Maybe we picked that up a few galaxies away.
>>23807243"Maybe we're in her dream somehow?"
>>23807243"...I think that was Winter. Anna, pour me another drink."
>>23807243"...Sooo, we're in Summer's dream? Please, please tell me you brought ALL the alcohol and not just one or two bottles."
Alright... we're in the past then... I wonder if we can save her. Anyway follow Winter!
>>23807243"Oh shit guys, we're ghost!" Follow her.
>>23807255GENTLEMENDON YOUR TINFOIL HATS
>>23807243"Anna, we're inside of Summer's memories and I think that's wee little Winter there.I need more of that Kahlua."
>>23807243Time for soberness, lets follow.
>>23807255That wasn't natural.
>>23807274already wearing it>>23807270>>23807243we're either in a dream or the past; in either case FOLLOW THAT ENTITY
Stop getting drunk, this could be important.
"... I think that was Winter." You say, and upend your glass. "Anna, pour me another drink."She pours you another drink, and the three of you step out of the room-To find yourself back in your dorm room. Summer was still snoring, but in the other bed, a small cub was snoring, curled up.The tiger cub was the fuzziest thing known to man, and you felt your hands drawn to pet it. It was... the one force known to humanity greater than your pout.
>>23807309HORDE THE FLUFFY ALL TO OURSELVES!
pet the kitty
>>23807309>>23807320...PET THE FLUFFY
>>23807309"Oh my god..."No way to stop our hand; prepare for maximum disappointment if it goes through the tiger as well."
>>23807309Oh no. Oh nooooo.It's past critical fluffiness density!Pet small cub. And then curl up with small cub, Anna and Summer in a big ball of hugs.
>>23807309Cuddle the fluffy!
Rolled 98>>23807309roll will power we will over come , for a few seconds at least
>>23807344>Not high enough. You needed a 101 or higher to resist for any amount of time."Ohhh... my god." You say, and reach out- inadvertently tugging the sleepy kitty into your hands with TK, and you hug it tightly, cuddling close to it. Its claws instinctively dug into your arms, and it started purring.It yawned, tongue curling, and Summer's real body sat up."... My head hurts." She said, and sniffled. The kitten in your arms stretched as well."Oh my god that's little me! Did I make little me?" Summer asked.
>>23807376Ignore Summer; motorboat that tummy.
>>23807376So fluffley ....
>>23807376"You're adorable!"Keep hugging fliuffy.
>>23807376for a couple of minutes you also made your old house...
>>23807376If this is little you, then congratulations: You were once the cutest, fluffiest thing in the known universe.Daww over the cub, show her to Anna.
>>23807376Nod."And little Winter. And your room. You are so ADORABLE."
>>23807376"It appears so.">>23807387You mean rasberry
>>23807376"You made lots of stuff."
Hey guys, we might be able to save winter.
"You're adorable!" you say, and give the tiger kitten a rasberry. It giggled, wiggling it's paws."You also manifested little winter. And your room." Anna said."You made lots of stuff.""How could I make my room? It's way bigger than this one." Summer said. "But you can keep little summer. I'm not controlling her, anyway."Little summer started purring, and kneading your shoulder, mouth open a fraction and tongue lolling out."Can... Can I hold her?" Anna asked.
>>23807450I don't want to give up the fluffy.Can we both hold her?
>>23807450"Sure!" But make no attempt to offer her the kitten.
Rolled 39>>23807450"sure">rolling a d144 to resist fluffy
>>23807424Re read the previous few posts. Jilly managed to interact with the window, and then Winter had to shift it back.This is potentially huge.
>>23807450"Okay."Attempt to pick up the kitty and hand it to Anna, pout about losing out on the fluffy.
>>23807464do this>>23807476yea but fluffly
>>23807424>>23807486>weird time shit.Suddenly, this quest got 10x more complicated.
>>23807486It wasn't time travel
"Sure!" You say.Anna held out her hands. You stare at her."... But.." She said. "I thought you were going to give her to me."Her words made no sense to you, so you just pet the kitten. Give her to Anna?... The words just aren't sticking together right.Anna pouted at you."Okay." You say, and hold out the kitty- or try to, because when you try, it mews quietly and digs its claws into your shirt. After extricating her claws from your clothing. Anna held the kitten close, kissing it on the forehead."I should give you all a copy of my baby pictures." Summer said, and stretched. "... But my head is pounding. I... don't think I want to sniff that much catnip next time."You were starting to get dizzy- there was a peculiar feeling in the back of your head, something that made your balance shift whenever you moved.
>>23807526Well we gotta try and see if it's possible at least.
>>23807450"I think you were manifesting your dream or something. A young girl who I assume was Winter ran in - and went right through us as if she was incorporeal."
>>23807486But it was a manifested window and Winter, not a real window/Winter from the past.
>>23807558Oh man, what a weird feeling. We better drink more to make it go away.
>>23807558"You have to be careful with catnip, strong stuff, apparently."Scritch Summer, get more alcohol, try to talk to a machine and go on a drunken tirade about valves.
I was actually thinking more damiens time travel.We should ask him later if he'd be willing to try.
>>23807558"That's probably a good idea."
>>23807558I think I'm starting to get a little bit.. What's the word. Drinked.Give Summer a hug. The big one.
>>23807587That's a long-ass time back, though, if the timeline adjusts itself to change things, no one except Damien would even remember that she had died in the first place.
>>23807630And?We could bring her forward in time and just leave something at the scene that looks like a mashed up body. Summer could even help.
"That's probably a good idea." You say. "You have to be careful with catnip. Strong stuff, apparently."Summer nodded, and Anna made a little whimper noise as little summer started purring, laying in the crook of her neck."I think I'm starting to get a little bit... What's the word." You say. "Drinked.""Drunk." Summer said. "Can I have something to drink? My mouth's all dry."Anna was too busy giggling as little summer started to crawl into her shirt to respond.
>>23807630Also how hard the Butterfly Effect is in, well, effect if it is at all can change everything.
>>23807665Grab the drinks ourselves!Mix two or three that smell nice! Offer to Summer and Self!Down!
>>23807665Get Summer some water to drink. Get more Kahlua for ourself as well as some water.It's time for DRUNK TECHNOPATHY!
>>23807665Get her water.
>>23807665"My shiger, can I have?"
>>23807665It's probably all dry because you spent the better part of ten minutes licking everything. Including me.Your manifestation of me was rather flattering.
>>23807706But no objections? Awesome.
>>23807730I rather thought the image said it all, but if I must manually object, you may consider my protest lodged.

"It's probably all dry because you spent the better part of ten minutes licking everything. Including me.""Not my fault!" Summer said. "You all smelled like catnip. Everything did!""Your manifestation of me was rather flattering.""... I never manifested you. Did I?" Summer asked."You did." Jilly said, while you grab some water for Summer. As for yourself... you spend some time looking at the drinks, and smell them all - then you take the two or three sweetest smelling things, and mix them up with a bit of sugar. Then you take a sip.It's like candyland exploded into your mouth - so sweet and fruity that the taste doesn't leave your mouth for a few seconds."You manifested all of us in turn, it looked." Jilly said."No, I was just manifesting me!" summer said. "And I tried manifesting a table before that, I remember..."
>>23807809"And then you manifested all of us, and made us kiss each other."
>>23807809"You manifested a noodly jello table. And you definitely did make all of us then a Manifestation which changed between which one of us it was which told us how much you loved all of us."Drunk Technopathy!
>>23807809"Well, first you started manifesting things of the wrong material, like the table made out of hard noodles. Then you just started rolling around like the ground itself was pleasuring you. Then you started to manifest versions of everyone else in the room, only they started to melt like candle wax. Then our counterparts proceeded to attempt to make out with us while giving compliments in your voice.Then you passed out, and I think you manifested your dreams in real time to all of us."
>>23807809You definitely manifested us.*shudder*
>>23807809"You manifested me and then the fake me kissed me and it was really weird. Then you made a Nagala Anna which pounced on them."
>>23807878>>23807879Don't say or do these.
>>23807809You kissed me.. With me.It was very unusual.At least I know I'm a good kisser!
>>23807809"You were going crazy with your manifestations. I guess the catnip made you forget most of it though."
"You manifested me, and then the fake me kissed me and it was really weird." You say, starting to babble, your cheeks warming up. "Then you made a Nagala Anna, which pounced on them."Summer blinked. "Oh." You nod."Can you make me one of those?" She asked, looking to the drinks. You mix together a few things randomly, as Anna was too busy tickling little summer's belly, making her giggle."Hey, I got an idea." Anna suddenly said, her cheeks red. "It is... The best idea."She closed her eyes for a long time. "I can go show off the new clothes I got on Heaven's Jewel!"
>>23807991"That is the best idea!Summer, I'm not sure about you drinking this, I'm not sure how alcohol interacts with Tigers."
>>23807991"Yes! Please do."
>>23807991Are you su- YES!Yes, let's do that. We should all go to your room, so you can get changed there.I shall bring some of my clothes too, so I can show off while you're changing, and vice versa.
>>23807991"That is the best idea."She can't keep hold of the tiger while she's changing. The fluffy will be ours again!
>>23807991"Have another drink and go for it girl!"
>>23807991Is it OK for tigers to have alcohol? Oh well, I'm sure it'll be fine!
>>23807991"Oh my. Go grab them, then. Start with the bikini."
>>23808010This. Alchohol is poisonous to house cats at least.
"That is the best idea." You say. "Go grab them, then. Start with the bikini.""Okay!" She said. "I also need to take a knife to my socks." She said, and ran out."Is it okay for tigers to have alcohol?""Yeah!" She said. "I have a bunch of paperwork about what I should be able to have, now that I've been transgened. Alcohol was on the list."She pulled open a drawer with a claw, and pulled out a bowl for her to drink from.
>>23808069This, ask if she can drink it first.
>>23808118Give her some of our drink, then make a large something and share it out between all three of us.
>>23808118"Very well!"Pour something alcoholic and tasty into her bowl. Drink some more ourself. Start talking to the door, tell it to open and close.
>>23808118"I hope you like sweet because that's all we have until Anna returns."
Rolled 77>>23808118ALCOHOL!Also, say hi to all the tech on the station.Aaaaaaaall of them!
>>23808118"I've never mixed drinks, or even drunk before. So tell me what you like the smell of and we shall see if I can make something delicious."
>>23808190Agreed, it's party time. Maybe we can tell the lights in this room to put on a show, have the station start playing some music for us on the intercom, all that stuff.And let Jilly have mini-Summer, she deserves to feel some of the cuddly.
>>23808190Could we use telepathy to force our drunkenness on other people?
"Very well!" You say, and pour something you'd mixed at random into her bowl. you weren't even discerning between if reagent A or reagent B was alcoholic or not, by now.You drink some of what you mixed, and with a 'blech', you drink some more. Jilly grabs bottle, and curls up on your bed, tearing off the cap with one of her teeth, and pouring a bit into her mouth, now and then."I've never mixed drinks, or even drunk before." You say, and pour some of your concoction into the bowl for Summer."Open." You tell the door."As ye wish, wench." The door responded, and hissed open."... Did that just talk?" Summer asked.Jilly nodded."It called you a wench! You're a jerk, door."
>>23808245"I think that door needss to learn some manner...s"
>>23808245Look starry-eyed at the door."My door is a pirate. This is awesome."

You say.Jilly flashed yellow and giggled."You're giving them minds." Jilly said. "They aren't actually thinking, you're like, er, pretending they do. Subconsciously.""Did the door just talk?" Anna asked, her arms full of clothing, a small tiger cub sitting on top of the pile.It was also wearing one of the new socks Anna had bought. It'd been cut up with a knife, it looked, making a makeshift sweater for the kitten.
>>23808355"Yeah, apparently I'm doing that somehow."
>>23808355To Jilly "Close enough."
>>23808355"You ruined your sock! But it's okay, that's a cute sweater."

"The door is a pirate!" You say. "Pirate door, Anna is a Captain! And I am no wench, for I am the dread pirate king Heather!""Ach, o' course!""Quickly!" you say, willing the door closed. "Show us the new clothes!"Some time later... you woke up.It was also around 5 AM in the morning. All of you, including the kitten, were wearing manifested pirate hats.Summer was wearing socks. All four of them on all four legs. Jilly had one on her tail.Anna was in incredibly lacy underwear, and Jilly took up all of your bed.Your tongue was fuzzy, but in your arms was a fuzzy sleeping tiger kitten in a pirate hat.Today was also the day that the Ishelda was due to arrive.
>>23808488Cuddle fuzzy tiger kitten.
>>23808488ALL HANDS ON DECK
>>23808488I know the Ishelda is a big deal, but we can afford to waste a little time, since we're skipping classes anyway.Get some glasses of water for everyone, when they wake up, then sit against summer holding summer.
>>23808488Carefully wake up Anna first, so no one else sees her in that state.
>>23808488>Anna was in incredibly lacy underwearAtomic blush incoming? Carefully set sleeping fuzzy on the bed and attend to hangover.
>>23808561I think everyone has seen everything, anon. But we could pawn the Tiger cub off to her while we get ourselves dressed.What is Heather wearing, by the way?
>>23808488Groan and burrow our head under whatever closest suitable candidate to get rid of that pesky light.

"Mrghblrgh." You say, sitting up. You nudge Anna awake, and she responds in the exact same way."Glphlrgh." She said, so eloquently, and grabbed at one of the waterbottles she'd had the foresight to take, tossing one to you.You roll your head. surprisingly, though you were still groggy, you didn't seem very hungover.Anna sighed, and pulled on a shirt."No regrets." She said, cheeks brilliant red, putting on a skirt over that. You just look down at yourself - and you were just wearing some of the new outfits you bought on Heaven's Jewel - and some of Anna's socks, of course.Then you take a long drought of water, while Anna fussed with her skirt.Then you snuggle more with the kitten.
>>23808697"This kitten is so cute! We must not let Alex touch it!"
>>23808697"I need a burger, a burger with fried eggs and lots of bacon on it. Station, could you tell the kitchens to make some breakfast."
>>23808697"That was a good evening."
>>23808697>cheeks brilliant red, putting on a skirt over that.NO REGRETS HERE SIR.
>>23808697"Will we even be able to focus in class?"
>>23808749>Alex can never know the joy of tiger kitten fluffhis life is unspeakable pain
>>23808697"No regrets.""This is living the Pirate Queen life, is it? I like it.""Little summer is still around. I'd think this strange if she weren't so adorable. Come and pet her with me.""How did you get so many socks?"
"This kitten is so cute! We must not let Alex touch it!""I will stab Alex if he touches it." Anna said."I need a burger. A burger with fried eggs and lots of bacon on it." You say."Yes." Anna said. "I've never had bacon and I'm suddenly craving it.""Will we even be able to focus in class?""I thought we were going to skip it." Anna said, stretching. "I'll be able to focus. Me waking up in various states of undress have happened... disturbingly often. But that was before..."She shook her head, and her voice took up a tone. "I'll clean up here, you guys can go to breakfast."She pushed on Summer, and soon enough, Summer was awake, as Jilly snored. Both you, Summer, and Anna tried, but the nagala refused to awaken, her primary eyes closed and secondary eyes half-lidded.
>>23808848"Do ho ho, sounds like the life of Anna the Pirate Queen was an interesting one."Keep mini-summer in our arms.
Rolled 53>>23808848TK carry her down to breakfast. Also, have Summer manifest a new shirt for Jilly if her current one is wet or something.
>>23808848"Maybe we should burn some weed. That'd wake her up."
>>23808848"Uh...any ideas here, or do we leave for food without her? Because I don't think I can wait until she wakes up on her own."
>>23808848"No. Unacceptable. Nyet. You are having breakfast with all of us."TK away the mess.
Rolled 9>>23808871eh it should be fine if we TK LIFT her...I hope she didn't chew on my mattress...
>>23808848Use the fluffy kitten. There's no way she can resist that, even when asleep.
"Uh... any ideas here, or do we leave for food without her? Because I don't think I can wait until she wakes up on her own."Anna slung lightning at Jilly, and she twitched, awake."Bwuh?""And no." You say. "Unacceptable.""What is?" Anna asked."You are having breakfast with all of us." You say."If you insist." Anna said, and the four of you, leaving your dorm room in disarray, made your way to breakfast."G'morning." Alex said- and noticed the kitten in your hands. "Ooh, she's adorable! Can I hold her?""No!" All four of you say at the same time.Alex took a step back.You make your way to the ladies at the kitchen and request a lot of food, Jilly coming up alongside you to order her own food."What happened to Anna?" She asked, still trying to wake up properly. "She's whispering really strangely."
>>23808977"She woke up in, uh, embarrassing clothes."
>>23808977>"She's whispering really strangely.""What do you mean?"
>>23808977"Huh? Is she?"Check on ehr
>>23808977"I plead the fourth. Er, I mean no comment."
"Huh? Is she?" You ask, and turn to Anna. She and Summer were talking with Alex as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened, but when Anna turned to look at you, you saw... something strange in her eyes. She gave you a wave and a smile, but it didn't quite meet her eyes."She is." Jilly said. "... Could you do me a favor? Keep an eye on her for me?"
>>23809050No, fourth.>>23809056"Of course."
>>23809056"Sure. But do you know what's wrong?"
"Most definitely." You say. "But do you know what's wrong?""... It's not my place to say." Jilly said. "History is what's wrong. The past."The lunch ladies set out the deep tray for Jilly, and she slithered in, scraping it up with her teeth. Now that you know how she eats, it's obvious, as the tongues spill out from beneath her teeth, scraping up the moss and holding it in her stomach.You make your way back to the Anna, Summer, and Alex, where he sat back. "You four made quite a ruckus last night." He said. "The intercom started playing music stationwide. Until I touched it, actually.""That was *you*?" Summer said. "I liked that song, and you cut it off.""Sorry." Alex said. "I just touched the speaker. Didn't know it would turn off everything."
>>23809186Fake anger"You interfered with my technopathy!"Punch him in the shoulder.
>>23809186Make the same song start playing again.
>>23809186"Ah well, it was probably bothering someone anyway. Good job. Also the tragedy of your power never hit me until I realized you can never know the feel of a fluffy tiger cub."
"You interfered with my technopathy!" You say, and pout at him."Heather..."You pout even harder. Alex sighed, and closed his eyes. "I'm sorry." He said.You grin, and make the intercom in the cafeteria start up, playing more Polycarbon Six. You keep it localized to just the cafeteria, for now."So." Anna said. "Do we intend on going now, or going to class and going afterward?" She asked. "And was Max able to get a marine contingent to go with us? And who are we bringing? I know Summer is coming..."
>>23809272"The marine contingent was a no-go I'm afraid. Its probably best if we go as soon as possible. You can come if you want as well, Alex, we might need your cool null-powers."
>>23809272"It'd be nice if we could 'borrow' another ship, if there's anything nasty on the ship I'd like Sarvesh with us, and he just won't fit on the Wyvern."
>>23809272"Well, I guess anyone who wants to can come. That is, if we can find a place for them on the ship."
"The marine contingent was a no-go I'm afraid. It's probably best if we go as soon as possible. You can come if you want as well, Alex, we might need your cool null powers.""I never thought my 'null powers' were cool, but sure, I'll come.""It'd be nice if we could borrow another ship. If there's anything nasty on the ship, I'd like Sarvesh with us, and he just won't fit in the wyvern.""I heard my name?" Sarvesh asked, stepping in."Actually, he could fit, if I dumped off most of my rations. That would be the limit, though." Anna said. "Three in the cockpit, one centaur, and one human in the cargo bay."
>>23809272"Max said we could use anything on the station, so I guess we could borrow a shuttle as well, if we wanted to bring extra people that is."
>>23809336>>23809339"Well. we might as well ask everyone if they want to come, though if Damien's still blind I imagine he'll refuse."
>>23809336"That will have to do then. Want to come investigate the Ishelda with us, Sarvesh?"
>>23809336"Sarvesh, do you want to go on an exciting adventure investigation a derelict ship that may or may not be full of monsters?"When he says yes give him a hug."It's not like we're going out that long anyways, and your rations suck and deserve to be dumped."
>>23809336The more I think this through the more this seems like a trap. Take a bunch of psions to the Ishelda, leave the weakest at the station to get picked off.Take only a few to the ship, we and our contingent get destroyed.
>>23809390Use our infinite distance telepathy to investigate the Ishelda from here, get mind controlled by the Void Queen again.
"Sarvesh, do you want to go on an exciting adventure investigating a derelict ship that may or may not be full of monsters?""... Yes, I do." He said. "That sounds fun.""It sounds fun to fight monsters?" Alex asked."That's what you do in Demiurg commando six, and you play that all the time." Jilly said.Alex shrugged.You turn to Anna. "It's not like we're going out that long anyways, and your rations suck and deserve to be dumped."She frowned.The tiger kitten, meanwhile, climbed up onto the table and started meowing at Sarvesh. Sarvesh picked the kitten up, and started petting it with his lower arms.Time passed, and soon enough, your bacon, eggs, and burgers were done and eaten. Max came into the cafeteria, quietly. "Good morning." He said, his voice rather subdued. "What is the plan for today?""We're leaving after breakfast." Anna said."How many of you?""Five." Anna said. Max sighed. "Me, Heather, Alex, Sarvesh, and Summer."No point starting up class for only two people." Max said. "Jilly, you get a day off today. Damien does too, if I can get Jason to let go of him."
Poor Jilly, left behind for another adventure.
>>23809449I wish Jilly could come.
>>23809449"I hope you aren't mad Max. I just have to verify our visions... thank you.">I hope some drawfag will draw how Heather and Anna look like. Because the picture with cigar and lightning in the background isn't enough
>>23809449"I might just be paranoid, Max, but, can you make sure there's a shuttle ready to leave in case anything happens whilst we're gone?"To Jilly <Can you keep an eye on Damien for me?>
>>23809449"Thank you Max. This is important, I think there's going to be a important information on Psychics and the VQ there."Give Jilly a hug before we go.
>>23809509And Damien too of course. Psychic Institute field trip.
>>23809449"As it turns out Max, the experiment with mind altering substances was worth it. A lack of inhibitions seems to break mental blocks, and other perceived limitations. Makes everything act wonky during though."
>>23809496Distance is apparently irrelevant to her powers so she could take part from the station. Play overwatch and coordinate us all with telepathy.
You give Jilly a tight, tight hug for a moment, and she turned yellow.<Can you keep an eye on Damien for me?><I'll keep an entire pair on him.> She said, and ruffled your hair."I might just be paranoid, Max, but can you make sure there's a shuttle ready to leave in case anything happens while we're gone?""I can, yes." Max said, with a nod."Thank you, Max. This is important. I think there's going to be important information on psions and the Void Queen there.""I agree." Max responded. "It is important."He nodded, and took a deep breath.Time passed, and eventually, breakfast was done."Are we all ready?""I am." Sarvesh said.Summer nodded.The kitten meowed.Alex looked warily at the handgun Anna had given him."Okay, all of our suits are in cargo bay, we all know how to put them on, and you all have weapons insofar as you use them." Anna said. "Come on, Pirate King Heather. Let's go search the ghost ship Ishelda for treasure."Then she gave you a small smile."Yaargh." She said.>End of thread!
>>23809681Jilly for waifu
>>23809710I like Jilly and Summer and Anna. ... I wish we didn't have to choose just one. those tongues
>>23809760Sarvesh has the second best tongues after Jilly. Not to mention that his dick is prehensile in all the best ways.
>>23809760>I wish we didn't have to choose just oneWell luckily, we don't!We could not waifu any of them.
We forgot to ask if summer was actively maintaining the manifested cub, or if it was subconscious like Winter was.
>>23809828I hope you aren't counting that smut as canon.Also, we didn't get a tip of the day this morning.
>>23809936B-but I just think it would be nicer if we stayed as a group of bestest friends forever.Though those tongues are really tempting.>>23809995We didn't get a tip because we haven't seen Einstein yet. He's still with Damien.
