>Previous Threads can be found at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psion%20Quest>As always, you could check Einstein's data at any time: http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8The year is 2573, and you're being led around the second station by Jilly's mother- a nagala with very... prodigous transgenes to make her look more female, and human"And this is the power facility." Luna said, slithering forward into the next room, her tail slithering from side to side. You saw a technician there, sitting at a desk and checking the terminal. "They need quite a bit of power for the artificial gravity, if I recall right. And that's it. I've shown you to hydroponics, through all the engineering, the drone bays..."She gave you a smile and a yellow flash, before her skin turned into a pinkish, pale human-tone. "I can't think of anywhere else to take you."The technician didn't look up, engrossed in his terminal. On its readouts were the stats of all four fusion engines in the station, shuddering and humming as they generated great amounts of power. He was also watching a television show on his personacom.
>>25071670"Well, I could show you my ship if you want."
>>25071670"Thank you for showing me around." have a look at the terminals and maybe have a peek at what the technician is watching.
>>25071670"I can think of somewhere~"Be gentle with the clothing removal, Devourer is still sleeping in our pocket.
>>25071670"That was a lovely tour. The question is, though, where do *you* want to go?"
>>25071752>You can't really peek at a personacom, because of the way they project directly into the user's eye. Unless you used technopathy.<Hello, Engines!> You call.They were tired, you felt. They'd been working in rhythm. <Sorry, girl.> One of them said. <We'd like to stop and chat, but we need to concentrate...> It trailed off."That was a lovely tour." You say, and peek at the terminal- they were all generating incredible amounts of power- easily enough for a city. No wonder having this station function was so expensive."The question is, though, where do *you* want to go?""Me?" Luna asked, as the technician tried to ignore you leaning over his shoulder so that you could look at the terminal. "I'm fine going anywhere~"
>>25071779I don't mean strip instantly, the spoiler is a warning for later because it seems like people have forgotten about him.
>>25071816<Sorry, engines! Keep up the good work!>That's just not good. They should really turn off the gravity generators if there's no one in a room. Send the station head a message about this. We wouldn't want them to burn out.
>>25071816"if you're interested, I made my own exosuit, a high power laser and my very own ship. I can give you a tour of them if you want!"
>>25071816Quickly search the station for an empty secluded room, or take her to Surya, keep it on the downlow though.
>>25071816"Weeeeeell, last time I saw you, I didn't have a ship. So I could show you around that, if you'd like."
>>25071816"Then follow me!"Show her Surya. It's ours and lockable and comfortable.
>>25071898Give her but a little pinch on the way.
Rolled 88>>25071816as we walk we do the high pressure bubble thing wrapped just around her and see if it works."learned this trick earlier today, mind if I practice holding it on you?"
>>25071920I was thinking about that. If we can get the secondary bubble thick/dense enough, it'd be like a shield and stop any projectiles, or slow them down enough so that they wouldn't matter.
>>25071919She doesn't really have a butt you know.
>>25071946A rub then?
>>25071953I would say a nice "butt" slap is in order
>>25071946>>25071919>Her 'butt' is all tail, and isn't even butt-shaped, sadly.<Sorry, Engines! Keep up the good work!><As you ask.>"Weeeeelll, last time I saw you, I didn't have a ship." You say. "So I could show you around that, if you'd like.""Oh, alright, then." Luna said, and followed you, slithering alongside you."And I learned this trick earlier today." You say, and with some telekinetic force, wrap more pressure around Luna. "Mind if I practice holding it on you?"She giggled. "Well, don't you need a lot of focus for this?" She asked. "It does make me more comfortable, but what would happen if, say, you got... distracted?" She fluttered an eyelash.Surya's hangar was still rather cramped, with Delta sitting next to the second Surya, his drones hissing as they sheared off parts. Apparently he couldn't uncreate anything, and had to cut it apart in order to get it out of the hangar.
>>25071943Wouldn't it be easier and a lot more effective to just make a normal TK shield than use two bubbles of TK to crush air into a sort of barrier?
>>25071976"Something...terrible would happen, if I lost my concentration. We would be...forced together, by some indescribable force."
>>25071976"well if I get distracted here you go back to normal pressure, but in the vacum of space where I was practicing I assume you'd get a nasty surprise""that guy in the wheelchair is Delta he's, got an odd personality and a really scarily good knack for creating things."
>>25071976"I can hold it and multitask fairly easily. You'd have to be *very* distracting."Do your best, Luna!
>>25071976Alex could probably help Delta with that, and telling Delta that might get him to wander off for a while. Also, I like the suggestion of arranging to have the gravity generators turned off in rooms where nobody's around.Meanwhile: "Actually, Luna, one of the researchers told me recently that I should learn to control my psionics even with outside distractions; he was worried I relied on the isolation chambers too much. So I really should practice."
>>25071976"That's Delta, he's very reasonable, if a little unsocial." call out a greeting to Delta, doesn't matter if he won't respond.>I'm unsure about this fling.>but I'll follow along since people think it would help.
>>25071976"Why don't you come on board?"As we open the entrance ramp.
>>25072026>>25072023Both of these: do say that we've been told we need to practice with distractions, but say that we've gotten pretty good at holding it subconsciously so it'd take one hell of a distraction to pop the bubble. "And it wouldn't do any harm, anyway; it would just relieve some pressure."
>>25072026>Meanwhile: "Actually, Luna, one of the researchers told me recently that I should learn to control my psionics even with outside distractions; he was worried I relied on the isolation chambers too much. So I really should practice.""So I really should practise. While distracted."
>>25072049>"And it wouldn't do any harm, anyway; it would just relieve some pressure."Heather, master of the double-entendre.
>>25071976Do *not* forget to lock Surya's door, and to check the access list and temporarily prevent anyone but Heather from unlocking it.
>>25072049This works.>>25072092Yeah, let's avoid any particularly embarrassing interruptions, please.
>>25072092Even Heather because Manifest!Heathers exist
>>25072099I don't want to have to replace the hull because we had to black sphere it.
I hope this won't be bad for our friendship with Jilly.
>>25072112I am very worried about this.
"I can hold it and multitask fairly easily." You say. "You'd have to be *very* distracting.""I see." She said. "That's good, then.""That's Delta. He's very reasonable, if a little unsocial. Hello, Delta!"Delta didn't respond."And one of the researchers told me I should learn to control my psionics even with outside distractions." You say, and with a command, opened the entrance ramp. "So I really should practice. While distracted. And it wouldn't do any harm, anyway; It would just relieve some pressure.""I see~. Relieving pressure is never usually a bad thing." Luna said, as you walked into Surya."Why don't you come on board?" You ask."I will, then." Luna said. "Doesn't look like there's any way we can get the ship out of the hangar right now, but... I have another idea how we can keep busy...">Fade to black!Some time later, you were in the cockpit, relaxed, like you'd just been through the best massage in your life. Your pants were hanging from a hook nearby, and Luna's teeth ground shut again, the tongues- and other, transgenetic appendages- sliding back inside her tail. You'd learned something; Nagala saliva wasn't sticky."How's that for relieving pressure?" Luna asked, and gave you a kiss on the cheek.
>>25072112Just awkward. We just never clarify what happened with her mom.
>>25072112It'll be embarrassing for Jilly (or perhaps for Heather), but I seriously doubt it'll affect their friendship.Also, it's perfect material to help keep Jilly from snooping around in Heather's mind if we don't want her to: just start picturing Luna and Heather together...
>>25072135>Also, it's perfect material to help keep Jilly from snooping around in Heather's mind if we don't want her to: just start picturing Luna and Heather together...Oh, this is going to be *fun*.>>25072131"Incredible. But, I shouldn't be having all the fun, here; what do you do when you want to get...distracted?"(cue second fade to black)
>>25072112She could have just asked us not to because it would be too awkward, and she knows we would have listened because she's a mind reader.
>>25072131"That was... wow..."
>>25072156>"Incredible. But, I shouldn't be having all the fun, here; what do you do when you want to get...distracted?"Not the best wording, but something like this, yes; wouldn't want Luna to miss out on the fun.
>>25072131High 5"I can see why you're ambassador."
>>25072112Jilly's response to realising what her mom had planned last thread was less "oh god our friendship is over forever!" and more "aww, mom, not again..."Something about the way she reacted tells me this isn't the first of Jilly's friends her mom has seduced.
>>25072112She can fucking read our mind as well oh my godddddd
>>25072132She's telepathic; we won't have to.
>>25072131that was interesting. and as an added bonus I can now use that to stop jilly from poking around in here(tap side of skull) without permission..."
>>25072131"You certainly are a master of interspecies... negotiations."
>>25072131"and here I thought psionics were magic, i don't think my muscles will work properly for a moment."does she go after all of Jilly's friends?
>>25072156How do you drive a Nagala to distraction, anyway?
>>25072183Well, Robin didn't help, and Heather wasn't really being seduced.....as it was counter-attack seduction as well lol......who seduced who?
>>25072209It was more a case of two horny xenophiles colliding.
>>25072209Max seduced Anna.
>>25072209>I don't know who is seducing who anymoreRobin came to take a peek, I just know it. Damn lightning reflexes.
>>25072131So, did we manage to maintain the bubble the whole time?Also, let's definitely return the favor.>>25072239yeahno.
"That was..." You say, for a moment. "Wow."She kissed your other cheek. "It was, yes.""... I can see why you're an ambassador."She just started laughing. "Well, I do have some ambassador-y work I need to do." She said, still holding you within her coils. "No matter how fun it would be to stay here and distract you all day, I do have a reason for being here. I'd best get going... But..."
>>25072156>>25072173From Luna's comments last thread, I get the feeling it was fun for her too, because she likes the "taste".>>25072239Wildcard!
>>25072131Wait, what happened, normal massage or post sexy times massage?
>>25072208Not sure. Maybe we should ask Alex for tips.
>>25072188that's the biggest mood-killer I've ever heard
>>25072256Naked tongue massage.
>>25072252>From Luna's comments last thread, I get the feeling it was fun for her too, because she likes the "taste".Ah, fair enough. As long as it wasn't one-sided, then.>>25072257Worth it just for the look on his face.
>>25072250"...Yeah, I need to do more training as well."
>>25072250"But?">>25072188Jilly would never do that, intentionally.
>>25072250"Aww, I was hoping you'd show me where Nagala erogenous zones are."
>>25072256>tongues- and other, transgenetic appendages- sliding back inside her tailShe had her dick(s) out, bro.
>>25072250"But?"And did we get sufficiently distracted to lose baryokinesis?
>>25072250Reply with a peck of our own"But~?"
>>25072270I'm just waiting for the situation when Jilly and Heather meet for the first time after this.>"Please Heather, promise me you'll try to never think about it in my presence...">"...">"Aww, come on Heather.">"I can't help it!"
>>25072252she said it was a delicacy she doesn't get to enjoy often.>Human sexual fluids as fine quality, Nagala drinks.
>>25072278Oh my, I almost missed that.
>>25072287Quick, nobody think of a pink elephant!
>>25072287"I wouldn't have if you didn't bring it up!">>25072293Heather is a fine vintage.
>>25072250>"but what?""well I have little to do today so I'll just check up all over the surya, we got blown up the other day and I want to be sure that it didn't damage anything; and a ship like this always needs tuning...">>25072239speaking of anna, I wonder how this goes down if SHE finds out...
>>25072237Yeah, it was the LHC: the Luna-Heather-Collider.
>>25072311>speaking of anna, I wonder how this goes down if SHE finds out...Well, she might be a little unhappy about it, but she can hardly bitch at Heather for having a fling with someone while single because their relationship ended after Anna cheated on her.
>>25072311Relationship is off till she gets herself settled, at which point it might be back on, this is as far as I can remember, the terms of their relationship.
>>25072131>Fade to black!The phrase that launched a thousand smutbins.
>>25072311I don't think she'd care all that much. She didn't react particularly badly when Heather fucked Damien despite being very attracted to her, so a one-night stand with no chance of going anywhere shouldn't faze her.
>>25072258Yeah, we're definitely going to use it but let's not bring it up with Luna right now. Perhaps later, because she'll find it funny, but not now.
>>25072278>Tentacle Dicks>PluralHeather has lived the hentai dream.
>>25072351Beyond just "didn't react particularly badly", she grilled Heather for details.>>25072270>Jilly would never do that, intentionally.Jilly is never intentionally invasive, but she's pretty casual about mind-reading. For instance, last thread she read Heather's mind to find out what Heather meant about an "important conversation".
>>25072356"Aww yeah, after this your daughter will totally avoid infringing on my personal space, score!"Not even Sarvesh could be so spaghetti
>>25072387Mood killer, do not say.
>>25072280>Yeah, the baryokinetic bubble fell instantly.>>25072375>That kind of mindreading is of a sort that even non-psions can feel and ward it away. It's more like knocking at the door instead of trying to pick the lock."But~" You ask, and kiss her back on the cheek."But this was fun." She said, and ran a hand through your hair. "We shouldn't do this much more, though."She gave you another smile, and a kiss on the forehead. "Then again, 'shouldn't' doesn't mean 'won't'."And then you disengaged the locks, and she slithered back down the gangplank, out of the hangar.
>>25072375It gets even funnier/ more horrifying for Jilly when you realise that she can actually feel memories with all her senses, as we can conclude from her finding out about sex via Heather's mind.
>>25072395First thing we should do, having read back a couple of posts, is put our pants back on, since they're apparently on a hanger.Beyond that, I dunno, did we have any plans for the rest of the day? I think we should go see Robin, she'll probably want to bug us for details about this, and it will be a good opportunity to get talking and maybe get the number of her dead clone girlfriend from her while we're hanging out.
>>25072395Gather up our shit, get dressed.<How's things going, Surya? Need any new parts?> Small-talk with ship aw yeah.
>>25072395"see you around Luna, if anyone asks, I'll be out in a minute, maybe longer."how about we try to long distance telepath something?we're pretty relaxed so that should help.
>>25072395<Yes, nagala tongues are awesome.>to Prometheus.
>>25072395Let's go do some more light powers.Try and get ourselves solar powered.
>>25072395I wonder how the tentacle monster in our pocket felt about being there...
>>25072395>Yeah, the baryokinetic bubble fell instantly.Clearly we need more practice.>>25072425>First thing we should do, having read back a couple of posts, is put our pants back on, since they're apparently on a hanger.Eh, if we really do have some work to do on Surya, it can be pants-optional. But if we're wandering off, pants would be good.>>25072438Can't telepath Alex.>>25072440Sounds fun, let's try it.
>>25072429>cont.or longer sustained telepathy, just chat with Surya or maybe one of the weapon spheres outside of the station.
>>25072441...well, this is awkward. We should find out.
>>25072451Actually, if we want to practice long-distance telepathy, a good way to do it would be to start a conversation with someone and then have them start traveling away from the station. Or vice versa.
>>25072395<Well Robin, that all worked out better than expected...>
You gather your belongings again, and get dressed again, though you can't seem to find your underclothes. Your bra was under the control panel, but your swimsuit bottom was nowhere to be found. You eventually manifest a pair, and get dressed. In your pocket was a small fuzzy creature- Devourer was a mole, now, it looked, or something similar to it. You pulled him out for a moment to give him a look.<... I'm sorry for intruding on your mind.> Devourer said. From the connection, you got the impression that he could... feel... things.
>>25072425Lets bask in the Luna drool for a bit, I bet it smells like pie.
>>25072398That raises an interesting point: she can't read Alex's mind, so this might be the first time she really feels what it's like to be on the receiving end of Nagala sex.
>>25072490<Don't worry about it, I'm sorry too, I kind of forgot you were in there while I was... uh... distracted.>
>>25072490Oh, don't worry, I'm sure that Luna took them. Or perhaps ate them.<I'm sorry too, Devourer; I thought you were resting.>
>>25072490<Hmm. I'm not happy...but I suppose you learnt a bit more about emotions and such, right?>
>>25072490"Was that on accident or are you Interested in... things like that?"
>>25072490<So, what have we learned about tentacles today?>>>25072493Interesting point. On the one hand she won't want to see it, and on the other hand she will. What's the telepathic equivalent of peeking through your fingers?
>>25072518MY OWN CLONE!
>>25072511She's probably waiting for the optimal moment to troll Jilly. Say for example when she's leaving, and she can pull them out and tell Jilly she's going to miss her, but at least she's got a momento from her visit.
>>25072537><So, what have we learned about tentacles today?>Eh-heh. Yes.>>25072507No, we didn't "forget"; let's not be rude to him.
>>25072556We did forget though. If we'd remembered he was in there, we probably would've moved him somewhere less awkward.
>>25072490<I guess I was even more distracted than I thought, since I didn't notice you poking around in there. Learn anything interesting?>
>>25072518>>25072544wasn't steering it towards that, was trying to find out if we need to talk to Devy about it.
>>25072568We didn't forget, no:>>25071762
>>25072490<Well, you did come from a part of me, and I gave you your initial ability to experience empathy. Stands to reason you'd be horny.>
>>25072571More like we thought he was sleeping.
>>25072581>"You see, Devy, when a woman and a transgened Nagala like each other's hot bodies very much, then the transgened Nagala gives the woman a full body naked tongue massage and tentacle molestation. It's a perfectly natural part of life."
>>25072604Yeah, exactly.>>25072597Too much.>>25072571Just right.
>>25072585Oh right, didn't see that.
>>25072511><I'm sorry too, Devourer; I thought you were resting.>>>25072571><I guess I was even more distracted than I thought, since I didn't notice you poking around in there. Learn anything interesting?>Both of these.
<I guess I was even more distracted than I thought, since I didn't notice you poking around in there. Learn anything interesting?><... Many, many things.> Devourer said. <Things I'm not sure I was meant to know. I now understand why Theta does what he does.>You reach out to Robin.<Well, Robin, that all worked out better than expected...><Hahaha, the look on your face when she thought it was y-... Wait. Better?> Robin asked.
>>25072665<I have learned so much about Nagala tongues in the past hour...>
>>25072665<If you have any questions, Devi, go ahead and ask them, alright?>
>>25072493She can read Alex's mind if he takes his shield down. And if he's not doing that and taking advantage of the various ways telepathy can spice things up then... he's missing out.
>>25072665><... Many, many things.> Devourer said. <Things I'm not sure I was meant to know. I now understand why Theta does what he does.><Ask, if you have any questions.>
>>25072665<she gives the best massage ever! i feel so relaxed, she even helped Devy learn a thing or two.>
>>25072665>>25072691>>25072697...and now we're giving Devourer "The Talk".
>>25072705inadvertently of course.
>>25072665Just <giggle> and leave it at that.
>>25072665<Much, much better. I can see now why Alex is always so cheerful recently.>
>>25072665<If I'm going to be blamed for it anyway I might as well do it~>
>>25072719Yes, that. Let her wonder.Either that, or <You might want to introduce yourself to Luna. She didn't believe me that there was a telegroper on the station. You might enjoy spending time with her.>>>25072665Meanwhile, how about we practice some short-and-becoming-long-distance telepathy, or some light-bending?
<If you have any questions, Devi, go ahead and ask them, alright?><I think I got the gist of it.> Devi said.<I have learned so much about Nagala tongues in the past hour...>All you got was a horrified <...> from Robin back.<I can now see why Alex is always so cheerful recently.><...>The horrified ellipsis only got... louder. Then the dam broke.<It backfired!> Robin said. <Dammit, I want to use my groping for evil, not good!>
>>25072778<You gotta get more tactical!>
>>25072749>or some light-bending?definitely this trying to make holograms/illusions may help us figure out the invisibility trick we're shooting for
>>25072778"if the road to hell is paved in good intentions, is the road to redemption paved with evil?"
>>25072778<Hey, I was trying to set you up for a bit of fun. I thought you might enjoy it, and I know Luna would have. Boy do I know she would have. Not my fault if you didn't want to take advantage of the opportunity.>
>>25072778<you are far to sweet to be evil, come here so can hug you~!> tease mode activate
>>25072778<Give it up, Robin, you have no choice but to become some sort of groping super-heroine.>
>>25072778>>25072809>Hey, I was trying to set you up for a bit of fun. I thought you might enjoy it, and I know Luna would have.Yeah, I'd like to tell Robin what we were trying to do; let her know what she's missing.
>>25072778>>25072813This, and then say this in person:>>25072809
>>25072778<Muahahaha! You should never have tried to use my own power against me!>
>>25072778if we can get her talking long enough, maybe she'll let slip which other Rho she fancied.
>>25072778Gogogo light practice, go do invisible, solar powered etc.
>>25072824The thought process at the time was more along the lines of "apocalyptic grope-off!"
>>25072778What does an ellipsis sound like in telepathy? In speech it's typically an accompanying facial expression.>>25072809Not sure if it'll help or not, but it needs saying.
>>25072861later we should ask Serpensal if the quality of our light beam is any good for feeding him.
>>25072868There were a pile of people trying to fix up Robin and Luna, at the time, on the theory that she needed it almost as much as Heather did.
<Give it up, robin. You have no choice but to become some sort of groping super-heroine.><Aw, maaan.> She said.<I was trying to set you up for a bit of fun. I thought you might enjoy it, and I know Luna would have." You say. "Boy, do I know she would have. Not my fault if you didn't want to take advantage of the opportunity.><... I'd like if you didn't meddle with my business like that.> She said, more seriously.You think about what to do... Robin's just in the cafeteria alone, munching on snacks, or you could go to one of the testing chambers to practice more light, despite the fact that you still weren't rested from the last training you did, or you could do something else...
>>25072869Probably a sensation of the feeling behind the facial expression.
>>25072882Eat food with Robin.Then go practice.
>>25072882Oops, looks like we upset Robin a little. Let's go see her and smooth things out, then perhaps once we've done so, we can get her talking and learn said clone's number.
>>25072882Go talk to Robin in person, apologize for the well-intentioned meddling (perfect time for this line>>25072804), and give her a friendly ear.
>>25072882go to the cafeteria and hug robinthen go and fiddle around in what passes for a workshop in this place...
>>25072882<How would you like me to meddle in your business?>
>>25072882Go see Robin in the cafeteria. Apologise for meddling, and sit and talk with her for a while.
>>25072882Lets go hang out with Robin in the cafeteria<Oh, I wasn't trying to hook you up with her Robin, just start off a apocalyptic groping marathon.><Mind if I eat with you?>
>>25072882>>25072904This, and perhaps explain Heather's own feelings on the matter, and that we thought the same thing might help her.>>25072910No. We've been down that road, and no; she explicitly said she wasn't interested.
>>25072910No, that'll just annoy her further.>>25072924We can also provide details if she wishes.
>>25072882<Sorry, I got a little carried away on that, wasn't meant to be serious.><want to hang out for a little bit?>we need some more snacks and a little rest, good opportunity to maybe get a little info on the other Rho.
>>25072937>We can also provide details if she wishes.Heh. After we talk to her more seriously, but yes.>>25072904>>25072895Yup.
You make sure you were dressed- Luna apparently broke the clasp on your bra in her... haste- or was it you that broke it? That part's blurring together. And after fixing that with the omnitool, you make your way down to the cafeteria. <Mind if I eat with you?><Sure, go ahead.> She said, and you walked in."Hey." She said, as you sat down, and slid you some candy. "Damien had me teleport to all these places on the first station to pick up as much of this stuff as I could. Apparently he had stashes on it. Split half of them with me."
>>25072950"You must have been popping back and forth for a while. There was tons of the stuff last I can recall."
>>25072950"Good deal. Hey, I'm sorry if I meddled too much, I just wanted to give you an opportunity is all. I wasn't ever going to try and force anything."
>>25072950"He must have predicted that we'd need it.""So, if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, is the road to heaven paved with evil ones? Because your evil intentions definitely led there.""And I'm sorry for trying to set you up. I was kinda needing that myself, and...well, I thought you might too."
>>25072950"Yeah, he sure likes his candy, even stashed a gun in there sometime ago.""sorry for meddling, I didn't mean to sound serious about it."
>>25072950"Split half of it? That's surprising."
>>25072996We weren't trying to set her up with Luna, that was not the intention.
>>25072950"Nice, thanks. Sorry if I was meddling, I just thought it might be fun, I promise, no more trying to get you sexy nagala milf action without your permission."
>>25072994>Hey, I'm sorry if I meddled too much, I just wanted to give you an opportunity is all.Yeah. It's not like we threw them at each other, we just set up an opportunity for Robin to have some fun if she wanted it. Apparently she didn't, or she couldn't admit that she did.>>25073009Some people were trying to set up a gropocalypse, and some people were doing both that and trying to let Robin have some fun, however far she wanted to take it. So, that was at least partly the intention.
>>25073030>gropocalypseOK, whatever else we say, that has to make it into Heather's explanation somehow.>>25073019This, but also: "Partly I just wanted to set up a gropocalypse, by introducing you to someone horny enough to enjoy your groping. And partly I thought you might like the opportunity for a fling. Or maybe that was just me."
"Split half of it?" You say. "That's surprising.""He said he was going to give me a third, but then he foresaw that I wouldn't agree to it with only a third." She said, and disintegrated a wrapper with a touch, and took a bite."Sorry for meddling, I didn't mean to sound serious about it." You say. "Partly I just wanted to set up a gropocolypse, by ntroducing you to someone horny enough to enjoy your groping. And partly I thought you might like the opportunity for a fling. Or maybe that was just me.""It's fine." She said, cheeks going slightly red.. "I'm just not... ready for that kind of thing." She said. "Like, think about it this way."She held up a candybar. "Imagine this was someone else. Imagine I lost control."The candybar burst into smoke, and dissolved."I don't want to do that to anyone."
>>25072950It's going to be entertaining if Summer comes by. <Why are you wearing manifested panties?>
>>25073102"Y-yeah. I see what you mean."
>>25073102...Maybe you should get some practice in with Devy-kun? He seems interested in learning, if you can get over him trying to kill you before anyway.
>>25073102"Ah. Is that partly... Sorry."let's try and edge that Manufacturing number of the Rho that she had the hots for
>>25073102"You have more natural control over teleportation than most people do over breathing. I trust you to teleport me around, even though that involves disintegrating and reintegrating me every time. We all trust each other with our lives on a regular basis. You can't let that fear prevent you from living."
>>25073102"Oh."It seems scary, but there's a simple solution: have Alex standing over you suppressing your powers while you fuck!
>>25073102"I see what you mean, if you ever feel the need to talk about it, my door is always open... and if I'm not to engrossed in my work" frown a little at the bit.>should we manifest her an indestructible stress toy?>is that even possible?
>>25073157Nah, let's not.
>>25073165remember that she accidentally disintegrated her vibrator, she needs practice."So how are you coming along in preventing that from occurring?"
>>25073201>remember that she accidentally disintegrated her vibrator, she needs practiceOh, right. We should make her some 'training tools'.
>>25073165Agreed on the pep talk there.Also:>>25073201Yeah, we definitely need to encourage her to practice.
>>25073102"Not to be crude about it, but practice makes perfect."I wonder if we can shape the blackhole material into the right general form-factor?>>25073165This.
>>25073102>>25073104Hmmm. Summer's manifestations can wander out of Summer's sight; they could probably help Robin "practice".
>>25073165She's a lot more focused when she teleports usually. We learned ourselves how hard it is to maintain powers while... distracted.
"Y-yeah, I see what you mean." You say. "So how are you coming along in preventing that from occurring?""Rather well." She said, and took a bite of chocolate. "By not doing anything.""You have more natural control over teleportation than most people do over breathing." You say. "I trust you to teleport me around, even though that involves disintegrating and reintegrating me every time. We all trust eachother with our lives on a regular basis. You can't let that fear prevent you from living.""You do realize I've killed people with this, before, right?" Robin asked, quietly. "My teleportation wasn't what awakened first. It was the disintegration that came up first."She looked up. "Look at your hands. The other day, in the restaraunt, I disintegrated the skin on your palms. I can't control that."
>>25073291That was a power we'd only just developed, and which comes naturally to us. Isaac could probably manage to screw in space and maintain atmosphere. And Robin can learn to not disintegrate her partner's equipment.
>>25073324ugh i dont care
>>25073324"If... you do it to yourself, can you recollect it?"
>>25073324Put a hand on hers. "Yet. Not to be crude about it, but practice makes perfect."Also, could she reassemble that candy bar she disintegrated, since she knows how to reintegrate things?
>>25073324Hold up a hand. "I got better."
>>25073324"And? I set myself on fire the other day. We're all extraordinarily dangerous. We just need to learn to control it."
>>25073324Wat. Did she actually take all the skin off our hands without us even noticing?
>>25073397Well said. What's a little inflammation between friends?
>>25073324>"You do realize I've killed people with this, before, right?" Robin asked, quietly. "My teleportation wasn't what awakened first. It was the disintegration that came up first."We need to hear more about this. This is important. We came here partly to see if Robin would reveal more about her past, and here it is.
>>25073324"You can't just avoid it forever though. I'm sure you can get it under control with a little practice. I mean, you must've... uh... done stuff before, right?"Hopefully this can subtly lead her into talking about her relationship with Rho-clone.
>>25073399>You noticed."If... you do it to yourself, can you recollect it?""It doesn't really work like that." Robin said. "Not for me. Look."She pulled back her sleeves, and grabbed her own arm. It burst into smoke for a moment, whirled... and came back into place, reforming into her arm again. "I can't be disintegrated for long. Kinda cool, though."Her arm pamfed again."Well... Not to be crude about it, but practice makes perfect.""Practice on what? Or who? I've already pamfed a few hundred dollars worth of equipment." Robin said. "Frustrating as hell.""And? I set myself on fire the other day. We're all extraordinarily dangerous. We just need to learn to control it.""I just want to pull a Lambda." She said. "The doctors say that you need the right genes for it, so I could get all those transgened out. Maybe it'd help the scientists find out what genes do what with psionics."
how is lambda?
>>25073461"Well, if that's what you really want, then I won't argue, but have you talked to the advisers about setting up some tests to try and help you get your powers under better control. That's kind of what they're there for."
>>25073461"that sounds dangerous in it's own right.""do you want to talk about the first time your disintegration manifested? it might help."
>>25073461"Practice on Devourer. If he lets you, that is."
>>25073461>"Practice on what? Or who? I've already pamfed a few hundred dollars worth of equipment." Robin said. "Frustrating as hell."Manifest some "equipment" for her. "That's an easily solved problem. Or you could always wander off with one of Summer's independent manifestations.">>25073461>"I just want to pull a Lambda." She said. "The doctors say that you need the right genes for it, so I could get all those transgened out. Maybe it'd help the scientists find out what genes do what with psionics.""If that's really what you want. Though, if Jilly and I can work together to give psionic powers to anyone, which Manus thinks we can, I'm not so sure about the genes being a strict requirement. But just remember, you've saved lives with your powers, too.">>25073529This, making it very clear we meant the disintegration bit and not the sex.>>25073525>"do you want to talk about the first time your disintegration manifested? it might help."This too.
>>25073529he tried to eat her, twice.I doubt she'll want to.
>>25073461Manifest some new equipment for her."You really want to just... get rid of it?"
>>25073547Devourer still needs a ton of rest before,we should feed him something while we're in the cafeteria.
>>25073461>"Practice on what? Or who? I've already pamfed a few hundred dollars worth of equipment." Robin said."Well, Summer or I could manifest up as much stuff as you want to practice on."
>>25073554And we all tried to kill him. Bygones.>>25073525>"do you want to talk about the first time your disintegration manifested? it might help."Yeah.>>25073584True, we should.>>25073558>>25073547>Manifest some "equipment" for her. "That's an easily solved problem.Or if manifestations don't behave the same way, it's not like we're not ludicrously wealthy. Though someone might blink at an entire pallet of toys being delivered.
>>25073461"You're asking what you can use for practice in a place full of people that can make literally anything?"
>>25073461just had a thought, Delta needs to get rid of some of his stuff right?voila, perfect practice material.
>>25073592Or in Summer's case, people.>>25073632Good thinking.
>>25073632I doubt Robin will want to spend time around Delta, he seems to creep her out.
>>25073638Not Delta, just his stuff.
>>25073547>"If that's really what you want. Though, if Jilly and I can work together to give psionic powers to anyone, which Manus thinks we can, I'm not so sure about the genes being a strict requirement. But just remember, you've saved lives with your powers, too."This seems like a reasonable response to her very serious thinking.
"That sounds dangerous in it's own right." You say."I have my progenitor's gene sequence. Her real one was on the data Alex stole. All of ours was, except for Sigma's. They can just look at the differences between hers and mine, and slowly change me back. I'd lose my reflexes, and it'd be like wading in molasses, but I'd be okay.""Well, Summer and I could manifest up as much stuff as you want to practice on.""I'll take it, but it won't help." She said."Do you want to talk about the first time your disintegration manifested? It might help.""Alright, then." She said. "I was getting frustrated, the security were trying to corral all us Rhos into our beds for the night, and then one sec hit me. So I touched him, and pamf. Half of his torso disintegrated. That's it to the story. Few hours later, we were all unconscious, and when I came to, I was the only Rho left."
>>25073679"...I'm sorry, Robin, I know it isn't easy for you. But, if you... if you ever want to talk about it, or about... her, you know I'll listen, right?"
>>25073679>"Alright, then." She said. "I was getting frustrated, the security were trying to corral all us Rhos into our beds for the night, and then one sec hit me. So I touched him, and pamf. Half of his torso disintegrated. That's it to the story. Few hours later, we were all unconscious, and when I came to, I was the only Rho left.""Do you really feel guilty about disintegrating someone who hit you? Or do you feel guilty because you manifested psionic powers and those assholes killed the other Rhos because of it?"Survivor guilt.
>>25073679"That's... Wow, those bastards."Hug the loli
>>25073679Wait, didn't she say she tried to hide her powers to protect the other Rhos but they somehow knew anyway? If that was the first time she used a power then she didn't get a chance.
>>25073679the girl needs a hug, whether she knows it or not.
>>25073679hug her hard NOW
>>25073712They were probably herding them to their beds because they knew.
>>25073712Yeah, that fits right in with>>25073701as well. It wasn't the disintegration, it was that she thinks she got the other Rhos killed. And yet if one of the others manifested powers first, she wouldn't be here. She shouldn't blame herself for the disgusting actions of those who cloned her.
>>25073701>"Do you really feel guilty about disintegrating someone who hit you? Or do you feel guilty because you manifested psionic powers and those assholes killed the other Rhos because of it?"That sounds like the real problem here, yeah.>>25073712>Wait, didn't she say she tried to hide her powers to protect the other Rhos but they somehow knew anyway? If that was the first time she used a power then she didn't get a chance.Do you happen to have the reference for her saying that?
>>25073701>"Do you really feel guilty about disintegrating someone who hit you? Or do you feel guilty because you manifested psionic powers and those assholes killed the other Rhos because of it?"Aieee.
>>25073679Use knowing on Robins disintegration, can she ever control it completely so she doesn't disintegrate things during sexy times?
>>25073762I'm pretty sure it was in her after-thread interview.
"Do you really feel guilty about disintegrating someone who hit you? Or do you feel guilty because you manifested psionic powers and those assholes killed the other Rhos because of it?""The second one." She said. "I didn't know who I was. I'd defined myself by everyone else, and when everyone else was gone, I started... Lashing out. I couldn't be all of them, so I decided to be nobody. Wanted to see how much food they'd waste trying to feed me. Finally sent people in there, and... after they were dusted, they sent, well, Sigma, eventually."You pull her into a hug- and hiss, as your clothes started to turn into smoke, skin from your arms scraping off. Robin put in some will, and it stopped."... Sorry." She said, and returned your hug.
>>25073701Don't say "guilty", though. "terrible", or "sad", but not "guilty".
>>25073819"Could you tell me about the other Rhos? It might help to just talk about it."
>>25073819"What did Sigma do?"
>>25073819"my own fault, don't worry, what did Sigma do?"
>>25073819"See? You can control it. I trust you, with my life; I have before and odds are I will again. You're an awesome person, Robin, and you're not nobody. You weren't then, and you aren't now. If you really want to get rid of your powers, so be it, but don't do it because you feel like you don't deserve to be someone, or because you think you're going to hurt someone with them."
>>25073819Those feels when you realize giving her telekinesis with tactile sensation is the only way she can touch someone without hurting someone
>>25073889Except, evidently not.
>>25073849If she wants to, yeah. We do want to find out this information eventually, and now seems like the best opportunity we're going to get.>>25073871Speaking of feels, this.
>>25073819So, think we could mind link with her using clairvoyance and then share a knowing experience looking at her disintegrate ability?
>>25073923That would be a good idea. Might give her more innate insight into it. Work with Jilly?
>>25073923How about we just transfer what we learned when we did. That's way easier.
>>25073949I like this
>>25073871This for what to say.>>25073923This brilliant idea for what to do.>>25073957I think with Robin in the link she might know more of what to look for.
Maybe we could use Knowledge to learn how her disintegration works, then use the technopathy virus to make something that will change how it activates so it can only activate manually rather than subconsciously.Or something.
>>25073971Probably a bit beyond us right now, and I'm not sure how we could know we've gotten it right before transferring it. And in any case, her subconscious innate understanding of her own Where might go with it.
"Don't worry." You say. "What did Sigma do?""Told me that Armatek wanted her to talk to me, to talk me into eating." She said. "Instead, she drew a knife. Offered to kill me if I wanted."There was a pause, and she tightened her hug."See? You can control it." You say. "I trust you, with my life; I have before and odds are I will again. You're an awesome person, Robin, and you're not nobody. You weren't then, and you aren't now. If you really want to get rid of your powers, so be it, but don't do it because you feel like you don't deserve to be someone, or because you think you're going to hurt someone with them.""It's not that I don't deserve to be someone, it's just..."She was quiet. "I can go anywhere, do anything, and yet I never really feel free."
>>25073923>>25073949This, and we should take a close look at her super-reflexes while we're at it. Maybe see if we can copy them.
>>25073999"Free how? Free of worry that you'll hurt someone? Free of guilt? Free of what?">>25073923>>25073949This, so much this.
>>25073999"Do you... want to talk about her?"
>>25073999>damn, I can't think of anything to say."free in what sense?"
I don't think she needs to get rid of her powers, she just needs to somehow remove the mental response that links pleasure to DESTROY!
>>25074043Do you think that's what she's getting at? If so, yeah, that. Hopefully she'll open up about it.I also want to know the "free how?" question.>>25073923>>25073949This seems perfect. We should offer, and see if she's willing to give it a try.
>>25074072It's not just pleasure, it's any strong emotional response.
>>25074072That's a disturbing thought, if true.
>>25074102We could test that theory. Hand her something to hold, and then tell her about Luna, and that we're wearing manifested underpants.
>>25074124not right now though.
"Free how? Free of worry that you'll hurt someone? Free of guilt? Free of what?""It's like I'm a bird in a cage. A robin." She said. "The cage is open, and I can fly out any time, but I never do.""You think I could use Knowledge on your disintegrate ability, and use a mind link to let you see?""... That might help, I guess." She said. "Or it could make things worse. I don't know.""Do you... want to talk about her?""Sigma?" Robin asked. "What happened after that was kind of... private." She said. "She did end up stabbing me after that, though. Disintegrated the blade."
>>25074124>>25074152No, definitely not right now. At the end of the conversation, though.
>>25074162"No, I didn't mean Sigma." Just look at her, and wait for her to understand who we mean.
>>25074162Haha! That's kind of funny.Tell me about the other Rho's. They should be remembered.
>>25074162>"It's like I'm a bird in a cage. A robin." She said. "The cage is open, and I can fly out any time, but I never do."I'm having a hard time guessing what she means here. "Fly out?"
>>25074184Yeah, the subtle, cautious approach seems best here. Let her realize what we're getting at and see if she wants to talk about it.
>>25074162okay,but I'm willing to try that power of mine if you'll let me.
>>25074196>>25074184Put these together: "Funny, but no, I didn't mean Sigma."
>>25074228Not yet, let's get Jilly involved so Robin can see it.
>>25074162How about I use Knowledge to have a look, then I can tell you what I see, and if you think it will help, I can show you with telepathy?
>>25074239>>>25074228>Not yet, let's get Jilly involved so Robin can see it.The deleted post this responded to said something like "let's use knowledge on her disintegration".
>>25074242We already offered, and she said it might help.Right now:>>25074184This, or>>25074227this.
>>25074253It's poor form to restate deleted posts, if they're benign. Often the poster will just be rewording them or changing grammar.
>>25074203>I'm having a hard time guessing what she means here. "Fly out?"I'm really confused too, though I think asking about the other Rho should take priority.
>>25074239>>25074253I realized I miss read something, so I deleted it, sorry for the trouble.>it said: "Let's use Knowledge on her disintegrate"
>>25074296I only did so because my reply made no sense without it. It would have made sense if I'd quoted the post in my reply.
"No, I didn't mean Sigma." You said, and waited."... Oh." Robin said. "... There's not much to it. We started as friends, became twins, then... more than that. Incest wasn't a thing, there."She let go of you and went back to the candy. "And that's pretty much my life story. From being born in a vat to power hungry asshats to here.""... I'm having a hard time understanding what you mean by 'Fly out'.""I'm not sure what I mean either." Robin said. "It's just a silly metaphor."
>>25074162Rho, someday soon, nobody will be constantly trying to murder all of us. I want to be able to move around a bit too.
>>25074329"Why don't you tell me about her? What was she like?"
>>25074329Is it because we can't really move about freely with a megacorp and a powerful psychic entity trying to murder us?
>>25074352Probably a lot like Robin.>>25074329"Can I ask...which Rho was she?"Or some other wording if someone can suggest something better.
>>25074329"Well, at least things are improving, no power hungry asshats round here, that I know of... Do you want to talk about her? What was she like? Was she as pervy as you?"
>>25074329I wonder if we should push for the other Rho's number, so Damien can go and get her, or focus on getting Rho back into shape so that when the other Rho gets here she isn't Pamfed in more ways then one."Come on, let's try the Knowledge trick. It can't hurt."
>>25074329"what did you call each other? calling everyone Rho must have gotten confusing at some point."
>>25074373>Or some other wording if someone can suggest something better.How about. "So did she come up with a name for herself, or did you just call each other by number?"
>>25074393That'd be interesting to know.>>25074403Nicely done. This.>>25074388>I wonder if we should push for the other Rho's number, so Damien can go and get her, or focus on getting Rho back into shape so that when the other Rho gets here she isn't Pamfed in more ways then one.Both. Let's ask about the other Rho, and go find Jilly so we can link up and try Knowledge.
>>25074422>Both. Let's ask about the other Rho, and go find Jilly so we can link up and try Knowledge.Indeed, once we're done wading through the swamp of spaghetti that will be our next meeting with Jilly.
>>25074444>inb4 we roll "badly" and share our time with luna with jilly and robin
>>25074474that won't happen unless we try to share information instead of Jilly taking it from our head.probably...
>>25074474I'm all for sharing it with Robin intentionally, but not right now.
"What did you call each other?" You ask. "Calling everyone Rho must have gotten confusing at some point.""We didn't use names." Robin said. "We were never really taught them. I was just me, and she was her. We met in the same place until we were able to recognize eachother. ArmaTek gave out these colored bands we could use so that we could discern who was who. I went all black, like my clothes. She was red black and purple. Sometimes red purple and more red.""Do you want to talk about her? What was she like? Was she as pervy as you?""Hah, no, not at all." Robin said. "She was quiet, extremely so. Really introverted, and quiet. You had to drag every word out of her. It took me almost a year to discover that she was so quiet because she didn't want to offend. She cared about other people. A lot. Wouldn't hurt a fly.""Can I ask... which Rho was she?""She was Rho 748." Rho 124 said.
>>25074524Hug her again.
>>25074524"C'mon. Why don't we go see if we can find Jilly, and the three of us can let you get to know your powers a bit better. And with any luck I can avoid giving her TMI about Luna."Then head towards Jilly, and send the Rho number to Damien.
>>25074524>"She was Rho 748." Rho 124 said.Success. Damien's going to have such a surprise in store for Robin later. Or possibly now, if he saw this detail coming in our conversation.>>25074569>"C'mon. Why don't we go see if we can find Jilly, and the three of us can let you get to know your powers a bit better. And with any luck I can avoid giving her TMI about Luna."This.
>>25074524<Rho 748, Damien.>
Exhale slowly, lay our head on the cafeteria table and use Knowledge to find out what happened to the mulched Rhos.
>>25074524Oh it's on now
>>25074606I think we already know. They were mulched into nutrient paste and pumped into Rho 124.
>>25074569and the colors on the band she wore
>>25074524>Rho 748>score!hugs for the hug god,we should probably have some scientists and a doctor on hand, very important.also, send Damien Rho 748's number and ask if what we're about to try will have a backlash on Jilly or Rho.
>>25074606Uh, they were mulched. And then the mulch was probably used as fertilizer or soylent green something.We really don't need to see that.
>>25074524alright I guess that's enough prying for know lets go find Jilly and see what we can do with my Knowledge. <damien I got the info on the rho you wanted to save.>
>>25074524<748.> to Damien"I'm sorry. For getting all depressive on you. Let's go and accidentally slip TMI on Jilly?"
>>25074605<Her colours were red, black, purple, or red purple red>
>>25074524send as much info as we can about Rho 748 to Damien, the color combinations, her introverted nature, all of it!
<Rho 748, Damien.> You say. <Her colours were red, black, purple, or red purple red.><What were Robin's colors?><All Black.> You responded."I'm sorry for getting all Depressive on you." You say. Robin looked up and sniffled, shaking her head."Yeah, good point." She said, and hugged you tightly."C'mon. Why don't we go see if we can find Jilly, and the three of us can let you get to know your powers a bit better. And with any luck I can avoid giving her TMI about Luna.""Alright." She said, and wiped at her eyes.<... I need Devourer for this.> Damien said. <Or I will. Can he get small enough to carry around?>
>>25074700<Well, since he's currently resting in my pocket, I'd say so.>
>>25074700><... I need Devourer for this.> Damien said. <Or I will. Can he get small enough to carry around?><he's riding in my pocket right now, so yes>
>>25074700<Yes he can. Let me ask him if he is willing to help.><Hey Devi, are you willing to help out me and Damien rescue Robin's lover from death?>
>>25074700<he's about the size of my fist right now, is that good enough?><Devourer, may i ask your help in saving someone very dear to a friend of mine? when you're ready of course.> he can probably hear us but it would be impolite not to ask anyway.
>>25074700<He's in my pocket right now, but he's exhausted from resurrecting Alex's parents so you may have to wait. Not that it matters to a time traveller.>
>>25074700<He fits in my pocket, but he's resting right now. If you want I can ask if he's up to pulling a rescue operation.>
>>25074700<Tell Max you're going, and you might as well start taking some of Kailyn's brain pills before you go.>Ruffle Robin's hair.Is she small enough to carry on our shoulders? Let's do that.
>>25074632>Roll for Knowledge!>Rolled 1>We mistakenly convince ourselves that all of the decommissioned Armatek clones are being repurposed into the omnipresent nutritious and easy to carry Green and Brown rations.
>>25074779>Roll for Knowledge!>Rolled 1>Forget reality, universe ends.
<Yes, he can. Let me ask him if he's willing to help.> You say. <Hey, Devi, are you willign to help out me and Damien rescue Robin's lover from death?><Yes.> Devourer said. <After what I've heard... Poor loli. I'm willing to help, and I've rested enough to be useful.><He's up to it.> You say.As you and Robin made your way to one of the station's unused rooms, where Jilly and Alex were watching movies, Damien came out of the woodwork."Sup." He said. "I'm here for a small fuzzball, about yay tall." He said."I'm not *that* short." Robin said."... I meant Devourer." Damien said. You pull the mole-like creature out of your pocket, and Damien stuffed it into his own. "Alright, I'm off. Wish me luck.""What are you going to do?" Robin asked."That's a surprise." He said.
>>25074796Devy confirmed for liking loli's"Good luck, inspector spacetime!"
>>25074796"It's a secret!"
>>25074796"I'm telling Max you're going."Then do so, via personacom.
>>25074700he's in my pocket and the size of a small mole right now. >>25074779that raises a question...what if we ate a ration bar that contained parts of rho 748? suddenly no energy? is that how we explain sudden failures and nat-1s?
"I'm looking forward to seeing it. Good luck."Onward to Jilly. If we're going to get Robin her lover back we'll want her to actually be able to control her talent when distracted.
>>25074796><Yes.> Devourer said. <After what I've heard... Poor loli. I'm willing to help, and I've rested enough to be useful.>>poor loli
>>25074796<Do you want my Ion Laser. Just incase. You know, as a backup.>
>>25074796>Poor loliPfft, Devourer.<Good luck!> to him and Damien
>>25074796"It really is a secret, take care of yourself Damien. You sure you don't need anything else? There any bits of tech that would help you with this?"<Hey Max, Damien is heading out, thought you should know, he'll be back 5 minutes ago, or something like that.>
>>25074852I doubt it. The more he brings back the more energy it takes.
>>25074796"I bet he's going to mess with stocks again or something."
>>25074851Go away Ishy, you're meant to be a giant shipwreck in this quest.
>>25074796"Good luck with you meddling. You'd better come back in one piece.I'll tell Max that you've gone, but only after you leave, kay?"
>>25074851Since Robin has lived longer, Rho 748 is going to be the little sister!
>>25074796"it's probably a Damien thing, no point in worrying about it..."Damien and Devy: <I am worrying by the way, stay safe, both of you.>
>>25074796"See you in 30 seconds or so?"
>>25074898Hopefully it's not too much of an age difference. That would be awkward.
>>25074851>Fun fact. Devourer picks up language from other people's minds in order to communicate. <Do you want my Ion Laser? Just in case? you know, as a backup.><I already have Anna's fusion cannon.> He said, with a nod."I'm telling Max where you're going.""Alright." He said."Where are you going?""It's a secret!" You tell her. Rho frowned."I'm going to find out someday..." Rho said, and then...Damien never was. Your mind pounded, seeing the backlash on the fabric of time itself.Your name is Damien. Two years and several months ago, you're running through the halls->A guard stomps out from around the hallway, and sees you-You skid backward, behind an open door, and hope he doesn't see you. The small, strange pearl that contained the entirety of 748's mind, sat in your pocket, Devourer into the other.And then you closed your eyes..."Psst." Jabberwocky said, tapping your shoulder.Your name is Heather, and your head is pounding, looking into the space where Damien never was. You try to tear your eyes away from it, but it was a portal to... the past. A rubber band, waiting to snap back into the present.Unless, of course, it stretched so far that it snapped."Heather, are you okay?" Robin asked.
>>25074796To Devourer: <Poor loli? I'm clearly rubbing off on you.>See if he's been around people long enough to get jokes like that.
Since Damien's been planning this one for a while, has he spread the information overload out, so he won't suffer from the blinding/brainmelting?
>>25074982"Yeah, I just got some weird backlash from Damien doing that."
>>25074982"Not really. I think we need to help Damien?"
>>25074982Yeah... just... Waiting for Damien to get back.I think he ran into trouble.
>>25074873>I doubt it. The more he brings back the more energy it takes.Oh no. I think I just realized what he's going to do.He might just be bringing back devourer and a couple of heads.
>>25074982"I... that... he... Jabberwocky?"
>>25074982Oh crap, did Damien just get erased from history...
>>25074982"I'm fine. Do you not see that big horrible rip in spacetime Damien just made?">"Psst." Jabberwocky said, tapping your shoulder.What the...
>>25075022I don't think there's anything we can do, considering that he's two years back.
>>25074982"Almost. Worried about someone."... hey, we're connected to the devourer right? I wonder if we can lend our support through him. If distance doesn't matter... time shouldn't either.
>>25074982general broadcast<jabberwocky I have a bone to pick with you.>
>>25075037We can maybe go into the portal.
>>25074982Can we make contact with Damien or Devourer in the present?
>>25074982>"Psst." Jabberwocky said, tapping your shoulder.That's very strange. What's with him and our visions?>>25074982>"Heather, are you okay?" Robin asked."Yeah, I'll be fine. Damien is disorienting sometimes."
>>25075054Worth a try.
"I'm fine. Do you not see that big horrible rip in spacetime Damien just made?"I don't see anything. You sure you're fine?" Robin asked, and that strange portal... suddenly never was.Absentmindedly, you felt Damien and Devourer suddenly in an empty bedroom, talking."Yeah, I just got some weird backlash from Damien doing that." You say. "Is he okay?" Robin asked.
>>25074982"huh? oh yeah, I am." look around for Jabberwocky.>this thing with Lin just got WHOLE LOT more complicated didn't it?
>>25075073Perhaps, but let's not screw with Damien's plan.
>>25075093"Well, lets go find out."<Damien?>
>>25075093<How'd it go you two?>
>>25075093"Yeah, I think so. You wait right here, I'll go see if he got it done. Trust me, it's worth waiting for."
>>25075093"Not sure. Timefuckery makes life complicated, do you know how weird it is for something to never have existed, and then for something that was the absence of something to stop existing?"<Damien, you okay? What happened back there with Jabberwocky?>
>>25075093"let me check"<damien, devourer you two alright? do you need theta, or a medic?>
>>25075093<Are you okay?>
>>25075093"Yeah, he's fine. Hey Jilly, can we borrow you for a bit?"
>>25075093"Yeah, I think?"<Damien? everything alright?>
I'm so confused.
>>25075093<Damien, how'd it go?>
>>25075145temporal mechanics are fun!
>>25074956Boning your genetic twin is pretty awkward too, and they apparently got over that.They'll be fine.
>>25075127>Devourer or anyone with him>Needing Theta
>>25075117No, let's not; he and Devourer will need time to reconstruct Rho 748.>>25075127This sounds good.>>25075121>"Yeah, I think so. You wait right here, I'll go see if he got it done. Trust me, it's worth waiting for."No hints.>>25075132>"Yeah, he's fine. Hey Jilly, can we borrow you for a bit?"This sounds good, it'll keep us occupied too.
>>25075156Yeah, at least they'll look noticeably different, which will make things easier on the rest of us. Or they won't, because Robin needed more ways to cause mayhem.
"Not sure. Timefuckery makes life complicated. Do you know how weird it is for something to never have existed, and then for something that was the absence of something to stop existing?""... No?"<Damien, Devourer, you two alright? Do you need Theta, or a medic?><I'm fine.> He said. <We're both a bit tired, and I'm blind again. We just need to wait until Devourer's better, then we can bring her back.>"Yeah, he's fine." You say, and make your way into Jilly and Alex's personal rec room.<What happened back there with Jabberwocky?><... Jabberwocky?> Damien asked.He didn't have a single clue what you were talking about.The room itself was almost empty, completely dark, save Fredric's projector, showing a movie. Alex and Jilly's torso were both laying on her tail, leaning on one another, watching the movie."Hellooo~" Robin said."Hey!" Jilly said, with a smile and wave.You noticed that Alex's power was slightly extended, shielding Jilly.
>>25075193"terribly sorry to disturb you two love birds but could Robin and I borrow Jilly for a moment?"
>>25075193"Hey Jilly. I'm sorry to interrupt, but can we borrow you for a while? It's really important."
>>25075193"New trick, nice one Alex.""What are we watching? Can I join you?"
>>25075193"Hey, we were hoping to steal Jilly for a bit for help."
>>25075193hey alex, jllly mind if we join you till the end of the movie? Robin and I need Her help with something.we're gonna try and figure out how to stop Robin from accidentally disintegrating things...
>>25075232>"What are we watching? Can I join you?"We're here for a reason, and it isn't to intrude.>>25075193"Hi Alex. Jilly, could Robin and I talk to you for a bit, privately?"
>>25075193Oh right. So Jabberwocky IS Damien? From the future? Time travel shit.Jabberwocky is blind, needs a shit ton of tech for him to be able to see. Damien gets blind a lot. Makes sense.
>>25075193"Helloooo!"See, this would be a great time to learn how to be photon-powered, so we could give Damien and Devy energy.
>>25075266...that's a disturbingly awesome theory.
>>25075232>>25075256Let's not interrupt, if Jilly's busy just ask if we can borrow her later for something.
>>25075193"Hey. Um, when you're done can we borrow Jilly? I want to try and help Robin not disintegrate things."
>>25075193"Dawww, you two are adorable together. Jilly, would you mind if we pulled you away from your cutie for a bit, you're the best at Telepathy and I wanted to help Robin get a better understanding of her power. It'd be much easier with you helping."
>>25075279>>25075256Can we not share Robin's business with anyone other than Jilly, please?
>>25075266That's disturbingly plausible.
>>25075193<Jabberwocky, the guy who tapped you on the shoulder?>
>>25075193let's take safety precautions as well, we need a doctor on alert in case we break something... again.
>>25075266I don't think that's actually right but it does make a scary amount of sense.
He must have asked Theta or Devourer to change his genetics to tone down his future sight.
>>25075294Damien came back from the future to save someone disguised as jabberwocky......1 internet says that its heather
>>25075266Man, we need to call Jabberwocky on this shit later.I propose, in any order:>"How the hell did you follow Damien back?">"Are you Damien from the future?">"What.">"How."
>>25075306I think he tapped Heather on the shoulder. I think he's pulling some kind of omnipresent predictive thing. He can see every time Heather is using visions like this, and drop hints.
>>25075327That's another interesting possibility. Perhaps Heather is slowly awakening to that.
>>25075266that would explain how he can intercept FTL transmissions on the quantum network.
>>25075342>There's no way to intercept FTL transmissions. It's completely different if you're controlling one end, though."D'aww, you two are adorable together." You say, and Jilly turned very slightly red. "Would you mind if we pulled you away from your cutie for a bit?""Yeah, I'll go see what they want." Jilly said, and kissed him. "Pause it for me.""Kay." He said, and brandished a hand to his drone. The projector stopped. Then he retracted his power away from Jilly, and she slithered to you.You, Jilly, and robin all went to another room, and she gave both of you smiles. "So what did you need?"
>>25075340I think when we first met jabberwocky, Heather thought there was something familiar about him didn't see? Can't remember though, what do you think?
>>25075327And if Jabberwocky is Damien... Then having Damien keeping an eye on Lin's future won't do anything, because Jabberwocky would already know how to stay off the radar, because it's HIS OWN RADAR.And he prevents a paradox because Present!Damien has no idea that Jabberwocky is Future!Damien. And he's already been through all this once, so he must absolutely know that Lin is bad news.Do we call Jabberwocky out?
>>25075382didn't seesee even
>>25075369"Robin is hoping to get a better understanding of her powers, both disintegration and teleportation. I could just use Knowledge to see it and then tell her about it, but I was hoping you could help loop Robin in directly so she can 'see' it firsthand and know what to look for. And maybe help me keep my mind steady, too, so I can actually pull this off."
>>25075290that's what the gap is for in the post it's for when they ask, and people DO already know about the disintegration thing.>>25075369we were wondering if you might be ale to help robin and I with controlling the disintegration powers
>>25075369"We're going to try and help Robin control her disintegration. As is, she has trouble controlling it when she gets emotional."
>>25075369"Do the vulcan mind meld thing. I want to see if I can help Robin."
>>25075397Could Jabberwocky perhaps be Future|Lin, back to save us?
>>25075369Personally I think this is a terrible idea but whatever
>>25075369"I'm going to be using Knowledge on Robin and her powers, pretty much grokking how it works and how better to control it and keep her from disintegrating things she doesn't want to break, and then using you as a relay for giving it to her. I'm good at telepathy but I'd like your help for this.Sorry about pulling you away from Alex."
>>25075406>And maybe help me keep my mind steady, too, so I can actually pull this off.Yeah, if there's any possible way Jilly can help us not fail, that'd be helpful. It helps that we've watched Robin's power before, so we should have an easier time doing it again.
>>25075369"I got an idea for trying to show Robin what her Disintegration looks like when i look at it with Knowledge, would you help us transfer what i see to Robin?""I'm not sure how safe it will be... we'll need proper supervision and maybe a doctor."
>>25075397Oh...ow my head hurts now. I say we don't say anything, it could complicate things. Jabberwocky is jabberwocky, if he cover is blown, could cause some serious paradox's
>>25075369"I want to help Robin understand her power better. If I use Knowledge can you show her what I'm experiencing and let her direct me what to look at?">>25075382Ellie sort of recognised him too.
>>25075369and remember to NOT think about Luna.
>>25075369We did promise we'd warn Theta and the medics the next time we tried something like this. Send them a quick <warning>, please.
>>25075457Thanks for making everyone think about Luna.
>>25075432That would mean that he kills his past self, which is just a whipped cream paradox sundae.I don't know how paradox works in this setting, but I can't see any way that Jabberwocky can be Future!Lin and kill Present!Lin without bad things happening.
>>25075479Mmmmm, Luna.>>25075470Yes, give them a heads up *before* anyone goes all brain-melty this time.
>>25075492Well we don't know that he died, only that he was shot. Perhaps that is how he goes blind, and perhaps that is why he is apologising.
>>25075470Wait till he arrives before we start, though.We did say that we would, because last time he was kind of annoying that we sent a message saying "I'M GONNA DIE!" and he had no choice but to come.
>>25075520He can come if he wants, but we really just need to warn him. He doesn't have to come running right away, just know that we might need him shortly.
"Robin is hoping to get a better understanding of her powers, both disintegration and teleportation.

I'm on my way, though.> He responded."Thank you!" Robin said. Soon enough, Theta knocked on the door, and came in, and just leaned at the wall. "I'm just the healing squad. Go on, do your thing."You close your eyes, and Jilly touched your head- Then recoiled."... Try to think about something else. Anything else." Jilly said. "Anyone else."Robin giggled nervously.Instead, you focus on the wall, and close your eyes while she touches your mind, and then... You look at Robin.>Roll Knowledge!
Paranoia levels have jumped to 8.5 Shadowruns.It's about to go critical. There's nothing I can do.Tell my wife that I knew she was a replicant.

Rolled 42please seomething good.....
>>25075555We just had an accidental "I fugged you're muther" moment didn't we?
Rolled 64>>25075610Of fucking course
>>25075592The average is 50.6 repeating.I think we just BARELY got it.
>>25075626I thought we didn't go by averages in this quest?
Rolled 19>>25075555for robins sake!
>>25075636I think Exa changes it up for different rolls.
>>25075568This should be enough.
>>25075636Exa changes it frequently. Sometimes it's averages, sometimes it's highest.
>>25075592Thoroughly mediocre and average in every way.
Rolled 29>>25075591I bet if I had stuck with my original pessimistic statement I'd have rolled better.
>>25075664Average will suffice; we just don't want to completely blow it.
>>25075663>>25075660Knowledge seems like the kind of thing where highest would matter: what's the most insight we managed to have. As long as we don't critfail, I mean.
>>25075663Guess what the average highest of 3d100 is? 80. We got 81. It's still only just above.
>>25075555>"... Try to think about something else. Anything else." Jilly said. "Anyone else."Think about Jilly then.
>Fun fact. Beat the DC by 0.666 repeating.>The DC this time was '50 Average'. Based on difficulty and skill, it's sometimes Average, sometimes the DC is, say, 60 High, or 20 Low. I like to mix it up."Sorry, I thought I had that one under wraps." You say, and then open your eyes.And then you see a constantly nebulous being in front of you. Atoms, particles, whirling around, connected by bonds that didn't quite exist on most levels of reality. And what that nebulous whirlwind of atoms and electrons did, when it used its psionic power, was... made those few levels of reality forget about those bonds. Entirely, and utterly... And then, after opening wormholes... She quite simply made them Remember those levels.And then your perception was gone, and you couldn't see colors anymore.Robin blinked."That was... Really weird.""It was." Jilly said. "Robin saw more than you did. Somehow. Well, you saw the same thing, but she... comprehended more.""... It makes a weird kind of sense." Robin said.
>>25075723So you just need to learn to make things Remember?
>>25075723"did it help?"
>>25075723"It makes sense that you'd comprehend it more, since you can feel it and see it. It's a pretty interesting power."
>>25075723"Think you can use it?"
>>25075723>>The DC this time was '50 Average'. Based on difficulty and skill, it's sometimes Average, sometimes the DC is, say, 60 High, or 20 Low. I like to mix it up.Makes sense. Sometimes how successful we are at a power depends on "how well can we maintain it" (average); sometimes it's "what's the peak we reached" (high); and sometimes it's "did we not screw up too badly at any point" (low).
>>25075723"Yeah. Your mind seems to comprehend it better if it's to do with powers you're familiar with."
>>25075723>>Fun fact. Beat the DC by 0.666 repeating.>>The DC this time was '50 Average'. Based on difficulty and skill, it's sometimes Average, sometimes the DC is, say, 60 High, or 20 Low. I like to mix it up.Would you consider sometimes posting the DCs afterward (not before)?
>>25075723"Do you understand it a bit better now Robin?I feel like I'm in an old noir movie now. Everything is black and white. I should probably dress up like a damsel in distress looking for a private eye."
"Well Jilly, I'm hoping we can do this sort of thing with everyone eventually."
>>25075723"Thanks Jilly, you're awesome.""I lost my colours, but it looks like I'm okay, Theta."
>>25075723"Makes sense. You already understood it intuitively, so you were in a much better position to learn how it really worked. It's certainly consistent with other powers I've seen, though; the difference is just in the details of how you tell reality to behave. Now, the real question is, did it help?"
>>25075723"I thought she would, that's why I wanted your help instead of just giving her the memory afterwards. Information is useless if you don't understand it."
>>25075723It's funny, Jilly would probably see colorblindness as a much more serious affliction.
>>25075723"Might want to stick around, Theta. I was planning on doing more photon practice later."
>>25075828Nah, I think we should find Dr Manus and give him retrocog.
>>25075771>Yep. For example, the atmosphere bubbles were 40 Average."It makes sense that you'd comprehend it more, since you can feel it and see it." You say. "So you just need to learn to make things Remember?""Kind of." She said."I lost my colors for a while, but it looks like I'm okay, Theta.""Glad to hear it." He said."Makes sense. You already understood it intuitively, so you were in a much better position to learn how it really worked. It's certainly consistent with other powers I've seen, though; the difference is just in the details of how you tell reality to behave. Now, the real question is, did it help?""It might." Robin said. "With all that equipment you got me, I'll be able to use those to test if I can fix things."<We're going to revive Rho, soon. You going to want to help me talk her through what's been going on in the past two years?> Damien asked. <I'm hoping to fill her in before we bring Robin back.>
>>25075723I wonder if the issue is that she needs to nail down the bonds she has, so that she exists more strongly in physical reality when she's not using her powers?Though not doing so might explain her reflexes.
>>25075855<Yeah, alright. Or I can keep Robin occupied if you want.>
>>25075861>Her reflexes aren't psionic.>They're part of the transgenetic alterations. In short, she's a loli because of her superhuman reflexes. Yay, side-effects.
>>25075855<Yeah, I'll help with that.>
>>25075855<Yeah, I'll be there soon.>
>>25075855<Sounds good! Let me excuse myself and I'll be right there.>"Alright, well I'm going to see what other trouble I can get myself into. Cya guys later."
>>25075855><We're going to revive Rho, soon. You going to want to help me talk her through what's been going on in the past two years?> Damien asked. <I'm hoping to fill her in before we bring Robin back.><Yeah, I'll be right there. Anyone else you think would be a good candidate for her to talk to?>"Heh, enjoy your practicing.""And Jilly, I'm sorry, I'd say I'll try really hard not to think about *that*, but that'd probably make it worse.">>25075877In that case, I *definitely* wonder if she might benefit from nailing down her form more strongly most of the time.
>>25075855<That's an excellent idea, I'll be over as soon as I'm finished here.>"I'm beat. I'm going to grab somthing to eat and then snooze for a bit, I think.""Thanks so much for your help, Jilly!"And stop by the medibay and grab some of those brain pills for Damien.>>25075877wait, so if she get transgened and lost her powers, she'd also grow up?How horrible!
>>25075855"Alright, Robin, I'll leave you to your...practicing." Giggle and hope Jilly picks up on it.<On my way, Damien. Anyone else I should bring?>
>>25075855<I'd love to help, be there soon. Also, do me a favor and talk like an old timey noir detective, say something about the red haired dame walking into your office, everything is black and white, I may as well enjoy it.>"Well, I think you can go back to Alex Jilly, thanks for your help."Give Robin a hug, tell her that we have some stuff to take care of, change into a dress fitting a 1940s-50s noir period and visit Damien to help explain things to Rho.
>>25075908>And stop by the medibay and grab some of those brain pills for Damien.Good thinking.
Rolled 64>>25075908>>25075906>>25075902no, we leave robin with something to do (or do herself WITH) and THEN we excuse ourselves...otherwise she'll be suspicious and follow
>>25075921>everything is black and white, I may as well enjoy it.>Oh yes.
>>25075935We could point out where our technologically advanced sex toy stash is and tell her to feel free to borrow one and 'experiment'.
>>25075935>With all that equipment you got me, I'll be able to use those to testWe already gave her something to do herself with, apparently.
>>25075935Rolling to Manifest a silicon object?We can use Luna as a basis.
>>25075855>>Yep. For example, the atmosphere bubbles were 40 Average.Heh. So, since we didn't get to roll, I take it that Luna is at least a -60 distraction?
>>25075855"you go test this new found insight, I'll be helping Damien with something. No one may disturb us unless one of us asks."Damien: <Robin is trying to get better control on her disintegrate, it might be best if you wait with surprising her until she figures something out. don't want her to inadvertently kill the poor girl.>
>>25075953Yeah, there's no possible way we didn't already manufacturer a centaur replica. Assuming we didn't just order away from BadCentaur.
>>25075855"Jilly, thank you for helping us and sorry about the, uh, information...""Thanks for standing watch for us Theta."
>>25075855Thanks Jilly, and don't think about a pink elephant.
>>25075855>Yep. For example, the atmosphere bubbles were 40 Average.The ones made in vacuum, or the higher-pressure ones in atmo, or both? And have they gotten easier now that we've practiced them?
"Alright, Robin, I'll leave you to your... practicing." You say, and giggle. "Thanks so much for your help, Jilly."<On my way, Damien. Anyone else I should bring?><Just some clothes, maybe.> Damien said."Alright, I will." Robin said."Now I'll go finish my movie with Alex." Jilly said. "Have fun, Robin."Robin went red, and Jilly slithered out of the room. Theta just shrugged, and went toward the cafeteria.For your part, you went to an abandoned room, manifested some Robin-sized clothing, and there, you saw Damien. and Devourer. Damien looked exhausted, with large bags under his eyes, and Devourer looked... perfectly fine, actually. He was a rabbit, now, it looked."Hey." He said. "You ready?""I am." Devourer said.
>>25076029"Can you siphon energy from me? I'm pretty well rested if you want to take some."
I'm set. If you need extra energy Devourer you're welcome to some of mine.
>>25076029so we just stand there with clothes ready?
>>25076029<When you hid behind a door after getting the pearl, Jabberwocky said psst, what was that about?>to Damien
>>25076029>"I am." Devourer said.Did Devourer manage to get human speech coming out of a rabbit mouth, or did he say <I am.>?
>>25076029Daww, you're cute. How big are your teeth?
>>25076073wait until after we finish saving Robin's girlfriend
>>25076073Let's not bother with Jabberwocky, but let's tell him that we saw him in the past. He might find it interesting.
>>25076029"Ready as I will be. After this I think you should get some rest Damien."
>>25076029"Devourer the Bunny. Don't suppose you've been watching old british humor, have you?"
"Can you siphon energy from me? I'm pretty well rested if you want to take some.""I can't." He said. "But the longer we take, the sooner Robin'll recognize Rho's Where. Else I'd take a nap.""I'm ready." You say."Alright." Damien said, and pulled out something that looked like a pulsing, leathery egg. "Devourer?"The rabbit trotted over to the egg, and touched it with his feet. Tendrils sprouted out of the rabbit's forepaws and coiled around the egg. It swelled, and pulsed larger, quickly. You heard the sound of something cracking, and a loud cough from something inside. Then hacking, and gurgling...And then it split open, and there, lying in the fetal position, was Rho.A Rho, at least.She lay there for the longest time, and Damien pulled out two red bands and a purple one from his pocket, putting it on her arm.And then her eyes opened.>End of thread!>Early end, since we're falling off the board!
>>25076132What does she look like? Exactly like Robin, or different somehow?
>>25076132>Early end, since we're falling off the board!We're only on page 7.
>>25076149>Rho looks exactly like Robin. A bit smaller, and completely flat-chested, but otherwise exactly the same.
>>25076132Only on page 7.
>>25076132>Early end, since we're falling off the board!But we have three pages left!
>>25076163So, distinct enough that if we're paying close attention we can tell the difference, then?
Damn you Exabyte!DAAAAAMN YYYYYYOOOOOOOOUUUU!!!!!
>>25076132>Robin'll recognize Rho's WhereWill she? She didn't have teleportation until after the other Rhos were killed.
>>25076176The chest is distinct enough, yes, but the smallness is harder to notice. Rho won't be getting any taller in two years, you know.>>25076175>>25076165>>25076160B-but my cliffhanger!
>>25076192even if she doesn't,suddenly having a new person on you radar would peak anyone interest
>>25076210>B-but my cliffhanger!Cut to Alex's perspective... Anything, please!
>>25076132/tg/ feels like it's been faster recently.Either way, thanks for running Exa, and damn you and your cliffhangers!
>>25076210You could do a couple of updates of us getting her up to speed, and then have a cliffhanger when Robin pampfs in.
>>25076163I thought Robin was also flat chested.in your opinion, how are we doing? considering player ideas, rolls that sort of stuff.
>>25076210I thought you were all about saving the cliffhangers for actual dramatic stuff.
>>25076222She's a bit 'distracted' right now, though.
>>25076248He tried that in one thread. And failed.
>>25076236I'm all for that, though I'm also satisfied with ending it here if Exabyte is ready to stop for the day.
>>25076210Can we at least do character interviews?Luna?
Rolled 24>>25076237theta fixed that...
>>25076237With rolls and ideas, you've been doing fine. I just kind of feel like I'm not giving you enough freedom. Well... it's more like you have all the freedom you want, but I'm not *communicating* it well enough.>>25076248Rho's appearance is plenty dramatic!>>25076288Sure. Let's do these, then.
>>25076237>I thought Robin was also flat chested.Oh, also; No, she's more a B-cup.
>>25076288>LunaA million different variations of "how good is Heather in bed?" coming up.
>>25076299>it's more like you have all the freedom you want, but I'm not *communicating* it well enough.Like a Robin in a cage, only the cage is open?
>>25076326Heather just sat there, taking it. we should probably ask how good she tasted.
>>25076299>LunaThe way you were talking about that delicacy last thread makes me think that it's something lewd. Is it?
>>25076299>With rolls and ideas, you've been doing fine. I just kind of feel like I'm not giving you enough freedom. Well... it's more like you have all the freedom you want, but I'm not *communicating* it well enough.Nah, I think you're doing fine. We know we have the universe at our fingertips, but sometimes we want to help friends work through personal issues, and that's a superpower all its own.
>>25076341>Heather just sat there, taking itI doubt that was all there was too it.
>>25076396As do I. I don't think Heather would be one to not try to reciprocate. But that's a detail for the smutbin, either one of the unofficial ones, or perhaps an official one. Whaddya say, Exa?
>>25076299may I ask for a visual aid of a Nagala? one transgened to be more human.for reasons...>need sleep badly>good night gentlemen
>>25076412>>25076396Well, Luna has "other transgene'd appendages" which means she's got more than one. So yeah.
>>25076348"Heheheh, yep.">>25076326"She squirms in this most *satisfying* way... I had plenty of fun.">>25076335>Pretty much, yeah.>>25076412>Maaaybe. I might never actually finish those, though.
>>25076444You're an ambassador, right? Do you have your own ship for diplomatic stuff? Does it have a waterbed?
>>25076444Well it's not like I ever finish mine either.
>>25076444So, embarrassing your daughter aside, what do you really think of Alex?And what do you really think of Heather?How does she taste, exactly?
>>25076444Why did you skimp out on the pillow talk? Do you not understand how important it is?What's the most interesting diplomatic situation you've ever found yourself in?Do you get paid well?How old are you?What's your favourite colour?What's your favourite food?
>>25076444What *does* a short, deliberate flash of the "happy" color mean? Were you smirking, or trying to cover up pink?
>>25076485Not-so-subtle poke for Heather x Max.
Rolled 78>>25076536....what is the air speed of an unladen swallow?
>>25076444Jilly kind of implied that this sort of thing happens often. Does it?>>25076536>How old are you?I believe it was stated she's 23?
>>25076485Have you considered writing Summer x Sarvesh?
>>25076590If you're referring to that joke one that was about 3 lines long, that doesn't really count.
Link to smutbin?
>>25076600I am now...
>>25076600No, but I am writing Robin x Sarvesh. Y'know, if I ever finish it.
>>25076623I thought you already did, or was that someone else?
>>25076612yess i neeed
>>25076627It had "to be continued" or something.
>>25076612A few threads ago someone posted a comprehensive list of all of the pastebins.
>You're an ambassador, right? Do you have your own ship for diplomatic stuff? "I do! It's how I came back so quickly when Jilly laid her eggs. I was passing by.">Does it have a waterbed?"It does! It's even in a pressure sealed artificial chamber. Probably the most comfortable bed I've ever had!">So, embarrassing your daughter aside, what do you really think of Alex?"Alex seems like a loyal young man who tries to be incredibly understanding about how Jilly doesn't quite understand how her body works, yet. He's that sort of silent supporter she needs.">And what do you really think of Heather?"Very devoted to her friends, selfless to a fault... Slightly scatterbrained, though.">How does she taste, exactly?"Like strawberries! At least, her hair did. The rest of her had various different flavors. So I'll just settle with 'delicious'.">Why did you skimp out on the pillow talk? Do you not understand how important it is?It was all in the fade to black, obviously.>What's the most interesting diplomatic situation you've ever found yourself in?"There was the time with the transgenetic lolis that was rather... interesting. Some geneweaver figured out how to turn middle-aged men into young girls with a combination of transgenetics and a biosculptor. The less said about that the better.">Do you get paid well?"Not nearly as much as Jilly does, but I believe so, yes.">Field too long!
>>25076664Specifically, see this thread:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24901345/
>>25076677>"How old are you?""I'm twenty two years old. I'm starting to get old. I might need to take some of those age-extension transgenes soon.">What's your favourite colour?"Purple! Like Deontar's sky. Beautiful.">What's your favourite food?"Kalguk Moss. But as a close second... heheheh, I did mention Heather was delicious, didn't I?"
>>25076705What's the craziest diplomatic incident you've ever had to deal with?Do you ever get bored of diplomancing? Where do you think you'll retire to and when?
Rolled 100>>25076755you dropped your trip there exaand you were doing so good...
>>25076790you mother fucker
>>25076755Have you ever done it with a centaur? What do they taste like?
>>25076705Is there a particular reason behind embarrassing your daughter, or is it just fun as hell?What's the most interesting color a Nagala can turn? What emotion is this related to?How big are your breasts? Do you prefer girls or boys?Are there any centaur notches on your bed post?
>>25076811>Is there a particular reason behind embarrassing your daughter, or is it just fun as hell?She explained that one already when we first met her.
>>25076811>What's the most interesting color a Nagala can turn? What emotion is this related to?Or more generally: What Nagala colors haven't we seen yet, and what do they mean?
>>25076705Can nagala turn tartan colors or does that cause them to explode?
>>25076705What color does a Nagala turn during...well, during that fade to black? Just pink and red, or are there other colors for that specific feeling?
>>25076677>"Like strawberries! At least, her hair did. The rest of her had various different flavors. So I'll just settle with 'delicious'."You realize you're probably tasting shampoo of some kind, right?And the potential writers among us might want a hint about some of the other flavours. You don't have to go into detail about where you found those flavours, but...
>>25076876I'm pretty sure it was pink. Probably. I remember Jilly being pink when she laid eggs.
>>25076891Which thread did that happen in? I'm having trouble finding it.
>>25076891Nagala biology being what it is, egg-laying isn't exactly sexy-times for them. It's a loving experience, but not necessarily a sexy one.
>>25076585>Whoops, forgot this one."Not... *often*, but it's happened more than once. What can I say? I stay away from the ones she might want, though.">>25076765>What's the craziest diplomatic incident you've ever had to deal with?"The craziest was the time a group of nagala decided to purge humanity once and for all. That was less diplomacy, more strangling nagala with my tail while I waited for my assistants to get back with the sedatives.">Do you ever get bored of diplomancing? Where do you think you'll retire to and when?"Maybe I will, maybe I won't. I'm thinking I'll retire to some beach planet, though.">>25076801Every participant in today's thread is a mother fucker, technically.>>25076811>Is there a particular reason behind embarrassing your daughter, or is it just fun as hell?"Yep! It also makes sure she can deal with being embarrassed better. Gives her character. Also, it's fun as hell.">What's the most interesting color a Nagala can turn? What emotion is this related to?"I can turn rainbow. It's a conscious thing, though.">How big are your breasts? "Big enough!">Do you prefer girls or boys?"I prefer girls. They tend to squirm more, and, well, have more orifices.">Are there any centaur notches on your bed post?"One, yes. That was most likely my strangest night.">>25076876"I turn yellow, mostly."
>>25076927>Every participant in today's thread is a mother fucker, technically.But by that logic so is Alex, because Jilly laid eggs.
>>25076927>"I prefer girls. They tend to squirm more, and, well, have more orifices."So, since Nagala transgened genitals are modified tongues, that means...Luna put her tongue in Heather's butt.
>>25076927How strange has it been to find out that your daughter is probably the most powerful telepath in the UPA by a decent margin? How did you learn she was psychic? Did you get any indications of this before Max told you?
>>25076927>"One, yes. That was most likely my strangest night."But what did he taste like?
Rolled 85>>25076884>>25076801if you bastards would let me I could leave my dice on all the damn time and pull random 100s out like this more often...makes for more interesting questing...
>>25076973Yep.The real question is: Which orifice tastes the best?
>>25076927What natural emotional colors can a Nagala turn that we haven't seen yet?
>>25076982No it doesn't. The 100s wouldn't affect anything.
>>25076927If you could have any one psionic power, what would it be?Would telepathy help you in your job?
>>25076927Have any crazy theories on the nature of psionics you want to share?
>>25076957And Damien and Anna and Luna because Heather has Devourer and Omni.
Rolled 66>>25077009the particular Cult of the Dice that I follow says that it does; especially in the scriptures regarding the dice on /tg/
>>25076927Where did the other eggs for Jilly come from? How did you pick them?Do their donors count as parents?Why did you decide to use so many eggs for Jilly? Was that unusual?Can you seperate a clutch and grow nagala twin daughters?
>>25076957The eggs haven't hatched yet, and possibly never will. That's probably closer to screwing someone who's pregnant.>>25077050I don't think Omni counts for that, and, well, due to Reasons, Devourer might not, either.>>25076973Yes. Yes she did.>>25076981"He tasted like seaweed. And oysters.">>25076995"It's so hard to decide...">>25077004"We all have our own emotions. They're usually certain colors, but they're similar to facial expressions. We can have many of them, and subconscious ones. There isn't a list.">>25077015"Telepathy! It would be incredibly useful.">>25077038"How about... Hmm... This is all a fictitious universe, and psions are completely arbitrary, there to have a diverse amount of characters with unique personalities."
>>25077050But Damien did Heather before she was a mother.Anna I don't know...
>>25077069Can you appear colours that humans can't see?
>>25077069>"How about... Hmm... This is all a fictitious universe, and psions are completely arbitrary, there to have a diverse amount of characters with unique personalities."Now that's just crazy talk.
>>25077069Hey, hey, no reading over the DMs shoulder.That was Lambda's shtick.
>>25077066>Where did the other eggs for Jilly come from? How did you pick them?"Friends, my own mother, some sisters... A mix and match, really.">Do their donors count as parents?"Genetically, but I'm considered her parent because I'm the one that raised her.">Why did you decide to use so many eggs for Jilly? Was that unusual?"Yes, but it was recommended to me by my doctor, because of my transgenetics. We needed the largest possible clutch for her, so that she'd have more genetic diversity.">Can you separate a clutch and grow nagala twin daughters?"It's been done before, but the twins end up weak. The eggs can be cloned, though, if you truly want daughters.">>25077091"Yes! Though it's difficult. And to humans we just turn a shade of grey."
>>25077122What's your opinion on the other Psions at the institute? Like Sarvesh, Robin, Issac, Theta, and so on.Could you tell us more about your private ship? How big is it? Is it armed? How fast does it go?
>>25077122Who do you think would win the grope-off if it had happened?
>>25077122What did you think of Heather's ship? Any improvements you'd suggest?
>>25077189>What's your opinion on the other Psions at the institute? Like Sarvesh, Robin, Issac, Theta, and so on."I haven't been able to meet most of them, sadly. I would, but I've been rather busy.">Could you tell us more about your private ship? How big is it? Is it armed? How fast does it go?"It's not big, it's not armed, and it goes pretty fast. Almost two hundred kC, last I checked.">>25077242"I know hardly anything about spacecraft, to be honest. I have my assistants fly my ship.">>25077209"...
