It hasn't been an hour since you set up shop, and already you want to quit. The sun has to be in the zone of a bagellion degrees right now, and you've drank more lemonade than you sold, which wasn't a big challenge since you haven't sold doody.Maybe the economy isn't doing so hot, maybe you should've done your sign with stencils, maybe it's that cootie-covered bore Lulu set up across from you; she's got those bright blue eyes that draws in all the tired adults and those bug-bite bumps that've beguiled those ten-year olds you call your classmates, just look at the way she smiles and waves at you, like she doesn't realize how much you hate her. That girl thinks she's something special just because all her proceeds are going to charity, but those children can save themselves, you're here on business.At the end of today and the start of tomorrow, the new Super Quest Brothers releases and you're not going to be the only boy in your class without a copy, you remember what happened to poor Johnny, you're not letting that happen to you.Right now all you've got is a no-name stand and little more than five bucks in your pockets for lunch. But by 6PM when your mother gets home and makes you clean up, you need $50 in your pocket, or you'll be the second least cool kid in your class. Thankfully it's hard to be as uncool as Johnny.[INFO:]>Popularity: 0>Money: $5.25>Cost of Lemonade: $1.00The current time is 8AM, what will you do?>[1 Hour/+1 Popularity] Post about your lemonade stand on Facebook>[1 Hour/Best of 1d10+Popularity] Sell lemonade>[30 Minutes] Talk to Lulu>Write-In

"Lemonade! Freshly naded lemons," you yell out viciously at the passing people starting their days, catching the customers on your block as they make their way to their cars, they'll thank you for the wake-up drink, there's so much sugar in each glass it could give a man a heart-attack.In the first half-hour, a few men humour you and Lulu, buying cups from each stand before getting in their cars. One snide trucker whispers under his breath, "the girl's selling them fifty cents cheaper." You spit in his cup when he's not looking.Pocketing four dollars, you take a moment to praise yourself for your clever original idea to sell lemonade to buy your game, and a moment to curse Lulu for stealing your idea before you had it, that witch has been peddling her pee-water for a month now."Uuuuurgh," says a man, turning the corner on your block. He's got dreadlocks down to the chain hanging off his neck, and a face way too white and nerdy to be wearing either, "I gots this hangover so bad... hey, lemonades!" Who the flip plurals lemonade like that? No matter, you need to catch him before Lulu does."My lemons are naded so hard, the flavour's explosive," you boast, pulling him steps towards your stand."My lemons are all-natural, my mother grew them in her garden," she says, turning his head her way."Yeah well my lemons are cross-contaminated with mari-ju-wanna," you lie, taking a guess at your guest's inclinations."Then I'm-ma take one from here," he says, plopping a coin down on your stand before walking off with a cup. You give Lulu your best smug look, you've been practising it on your teachers. Looks like the rest of the hour will be slow, so you start walking over to her to gloat.>CONT
"Looks like I win this time.""Win?" She gives you a smile, God, she always has that annoying smile on."I know what you're doing, and it's not going to work Lulu, I'm going to sell so many lemons that they'll run out of Mexicans and have to hire white pickers."She giggles at your comment. "You're so funny," she says. Did you make a joke there? Is she playing mind-games on you? Your father warned you about women, and girls are just tiny women. Well, you're here any ways, you better...[INFO:]>Popularity: 0>Money: $10.25>Cost of Lemonade: $1.00>Time: 8:30AM>Tell Lulu to leave>Sabotage Lulu's stand>Play nice... for now>Write-In

"Nice stand you got here, like the name." Lulu's Lemons huh, wonder if that breaks any copyright laws."You like it? I've been thinking of putting some glitter on the sign, but I'm afraid of it getting in the lemonade. We want our drinks sparkling, not spaaarkling, right?" What is she smiling about, she seems to want you to say something, better just keep quiet and nod."Hear you're charging fifty cents a cup, that's awfully hard in this economy isn't it.""Economy? Hahahah, what's that?""Economy goes something like this... see, when two people are offering the same product, and one person has it for cheaper, people tend to buy the cheaper version of the product.""That makes sense. Why not just offer all your products for cheap then?" So innocent, so foolish."Because you need to turn a profit. There're a few ways to go about beating competitive prices without compromising though.""Like what?" She's listening so attentively, stepping on her tip-toes. A real model student, Lulu."Offering better service for one, or a better selection. You could sell cookies with your lemonade for example.""Oh! My mother baked a fresh batch this morning," she says, her eyes bright and wide, "I'll go grab some!" With that, Lulu runs back into her house... oh, does she make it too easy.Looks like she has a bag of sugar behind her stand to make her mix, it's got that organic label on it, but you're pretty sure nothing as tasty as sugar can be organic. You decide to make the label a bit more accurate, picking clumps of dirt off of Lulu's lawn and tucking it inbetween the corners of the sack, milling it until you can barely tell.For good measure you spit into the pitcher she's already got set up and change Lulu's Lemons to Loser's Lemons, the first e is a little angled but that's fine, that'll show her, let's wipe that smile off her face for good.You make way back to your stand, it'll be awhile yet to see the fruits of your labour.>CONT
"HEY! HEY!" Oh boy, Nelson just woke up, he's almost as lame as Johnny and three times as loud. "WHAT'RE YOU DOING?"

>>34425910SecondNelson's a jerk, and another shoulder for Lulu to cry on. Can't have him in the picture messing up things.
"Buy some lemonade or go away Nelson." Nelson is good for two things, finishing up the broccoli you don't want to eat and touch football. Perhaps someday when he sorts out his volume issues he'll make for a dirt-bag quarterback, but for now he's mostly just a bag."OKAY," yells Nelson, reaching inside his pants and fetching out a lint-covered coin that he slaps down on your stand, shaking it just a little. You pour him a cup of lemonade, and he brings it to his lips with both of his clumsy fat hands, chugging it all down quickly. "YOUR LEMONADE IS TOO SOUR.""It's lemonade Nelson, it's naded from lemons.""YEAH, BUT WHY IS IT SO SO-" Nelson doesn't finish his words, a quick kick of yours to his gut sends him crumbling to the ground."Act cool Nelson, somewhere else preferably," you say, as a posse of three high schoolers roll in on skateboards. Jeez, it's not even 10 yet, aren't they supposed to be sleeping or going on dates or something?"Yo! Bro! Check it out, it's a lemonade stand!" The one at the front stops, kicking his skateboard up and catching it before spinning his baseball cap around backwards. "Wiiiicked." What era are these guys from?"Dude, it's so narshing hot out that I'm thinking of getting my citrus on," says the second, sweating off his fake tan."Mang, I bet I can drink more lemonades than you can," says the third, messing up the plural while wearing a faux-hawk that scrapes the sky."Bro!""Dude!""Mang!" Like tribal chants, they repeat their tics to each other."Are you going to buy some lemonade," you ask them. They throw some coins at you without making an effort to count, and you serve them up ten cups. They chug it down in seconds the way Johnny's father chugs beer, before rolling off again.Looks like Nelson has rolled off in the mean-time, he's real scared of high schoolers. He's left a fat boy-shaped line in your yard, but that's not important. You go to count up your money, when out of nowhere...>CONT
"Hey dweeeeeeb!" Oh god, oh god, it's TJ, he's so big that there're rumours that they held him back a year, and stupid enough to substantiate those rumours. Worse yet, he's an ethnic and feels compelled to prove all the stereotypes true. Whichever ethnic he is, your father really says the same bad things about everyone who's not a part of your race."Hey TJ," you answer him, doing your best not to get intimidated by his fake leather jacket. Guys in real leather are occasionally cool motorcycling shark tamers, but guys in fake leather are all trouble."Looks like you got some money there, how about we split? You lend me some, and I won't beat you up on Monday," he says with a smirk. You've never been beaten up by TJ before, but Johnny makes it look painful.

Oh boy, it seems TJ is mad, better handle this tactfully."I'm just saying, Carlyle's dad is a psychologist and he thinks that you're just putting out aggression to mask the insecurity of the fact that your dad is a dead-beat.""I'M GOING TO DEAD-BEAT YOU," TJ yells, raising a fist and eyeing you with the fury of a thousand suns, but also the sadness of one clown."Yeah, Carlyle's dad says that it's a cycle. Dad leaves, kid goes bad, kid grows up, leaves his kid. But I think you can stop it TJ.""...yeah?" His fist slowly drops."All you have to do is go over there, see that stand over there?" You gesture over to Lulu's stand."Yeah?""Well see, instead of being angry at your father, you should be angry at your mother.""I don't get it.""I'm saying that you should go terrorize Lulu, she has more money and also her lemonade stand vaguely resembles your mother's failing beauty parlour, look, she's coming out right now." As if on queue, Lulu exits her house and comes out with a skip and a whistle. She sits down on her stand, not able to see your re-drawn sign from her side, and completely unaware of the tricks played on her stock."I don't know, I don't hit girls.""What if I told you she had more money than me? Also that she thinks you're gross.""THAT JERK!" TJ, big, dumb, but full of furious heart makes a mad-dash across the street to Lulu's stand. The girl smiles at him at first, but it quickly gives way to a scream and a run when he slaps her plastic sippy cups off the table. He'll probably forget what he's doing in a few minutes, with any luck she can outrun him until then. The two vanish down the block...>CONT

Man, whoever thought of on-disc DLC was a genius, it saves people so much time downloading the DLC!"And then I was like, oh no, and she was all like, yah-haaah, and then they were like, aaaaw snap." Oh, it's Nelson's sister Nelly and her two friends. You don't know their names, but they colour-code their clothes not to match so you usually call them Red and Blue, Nelly being the yellow of the three, probably because Nelly and yellow both have two ls."Aww, look gals, he's selling leeeeimonaaaade," says Nelly, cutting short her conversation to butcher the english language, "take a picture of me with the stand." Nelly hugs the make-shift pillar of your stand between her breasts, standing on one leg and sticking the other out behind her in some magazine-cover pose. She's a bit better at watching her weight than Nelson is, but you'd still rather not have her leaning on the stand... or around it at all. There're customers walking right past the stand as the girls blind you with flashes of their cell phone cameras.This wouldn't be too big a deal, if you weren't aware that these girls were on a ridiculous no-citrus diet.[INFO:]>Popularity: 0>Money: $21.25>Time: 10:30AM>[Best of 2 1d10+Popularity] Tell the girls to leave>[30 Minutes] Wait it out>Write-In

"Sorry ladies, but this stand is only for paying customers.""Uuuugh, you don't like, own the side-walk," says Red, twirling her curly orange hair."Does he? Is the side-walk like, a part of his house," says Blue, with her mouth stupidly agape with strands of blond caught to the lip."Well, if you're going to take some photos then could you at least post it online or something? I need the advertisement.""OOOOH! LEMONADE STAND MODELING!" Nelly hops off of your stand and taps her heels against the grass with an energy that you're fairly sure will land her a broken ankle. All at once, the three girls go, "WOOOOOOOOO!"Things like this are why Lulu should be thankful to have you as a neighbour, the harassment will ensure she never becomes one of them.For the next half hour, the girls take photos of themselves making kissy faces in front of your lemonade stand. Though they don't pay for or drink any of your glasses, they make more than a couple photos of themselves holding the glasses and posing with them. You've heard of this behaviour before while watching the Discovery Channel, and you're pretty sure it's called Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.You check your Facebook feed and confirm that Nelly's put up images of your lemonade stand, although the vast vast majority of them are largely obscured by your face, it should serve to bring in at least one customer."Okay girls, let's BOUNCE!" When they've finally tired out, Nelly lifts her hand above her head and points it in a seemingly random direction. The girls saunter off."Euuuuuugh..." Lulu returns to her stand, sweaty from the running. Looks like she managed to beat TJ, maybe that celery in her lunch actually does do something for her energy. She sits back in her chair exhausted.[INFO:]>Popularity: 1>Money: $21.25>Time: 11:0AM>[1 Hour/+1 Popularity] Patch up your stand, it's looking a bit trashy from the girl's games>[1 Hour/One 1d10+Popularity] Sell lemonade>[30 Minutes] Talk to Lulu>Write-In

The stand is just the littlest bit crooked from Nelly's weight, but you just have to take apart the beams and put them back together to fix that. The real problem is wiping out the red kissy marks, those girls probably couldn't tell bloody splinters apart from dry crusty rouge if they put all three of their heads together. Lemonade works as a decent enough solution, what can't it do?There you go, now that's a sexy stand. You're not really sure what sexy means, but the stand is definitely that. As good as it looks though, there's nobody around. Lunch rush will start any minute now, but you should probably go see what other ways you can fudge with Lulu's stand before she takes all your customers."Hey Lulu, you okay? TJ sure did chase you," you say, feigning ignorance once you've crossed the street."I'm okay," she says with a smile, "I feel more bad for him, after a few blocks he just sort of curled over and started crying momma...""Oh that TJ, what a character. You should refresh, after a run like that.""Good thinking!" Lulu bends down to pick up a fallen cup, setting it down on her stand before pouring out the last of her pitcher. You watch her drink it with a snicker in your head, she doesn't know you spat in it!"HAHAHAHAH!""Hahahahah... what's so funny?" She gives you a confused blink."I was remembering something that happened to Johnny." You should probably cut down on the laughter."You guys need to stop picking on Johnny, he doesn't have a mom you know." TJ doesn't have a dad, but he doesn't cry over i- wait...Lulu goes to make another batch of lemonade, with her all-natural sugar.

Lunch hour comes, and although you can't really count on the working class to drive through the quiet suburbs in search of delicious fresh lemonade, there're bound to be people leaving the house for the local fast-food joint that'll want something more than liquid sugar to wet their thirst, like liquid sugar with added lemons for example...You think, the bulk of the hour goes by quietly. What's going on? Did you not think this through well enough? Where're your customers?"Well I'm a hunka-hankering to get me some fast food, yessiree!" It's Mr Mallory out for his daily heart-attack, you wave your hands at him to get his attention. "What's all the hub, bub?""Buy my lemonade," you demand, sticking a stir-spoon at him."Wella I don't see why I wouldn't, little student!" He's a nice guy, but that moustache he has always put you on edge for some reason. Still, a customer is a customer, he walks off with a glass of diabetes, you sit down with another dollar in your pocket.A few people pass by Lulu's stand, she must have the better side of the street or something; when they have a taste of her lemonade though, half of them spit it out and the other half just calmly force themselves to swallow with a bad taste on their face. They cross the streets, paying you to help wash their palates down. That's four glasses of lemonade sold, but it's still hardly anything for the noon hour."What's wrong with my lemonade?" Lulu wonders aloud when the good-folk have left, she pours herself a glass with a chunk of brown and white sugar, swishing it about in her mouth before coughing it up. Despite a raised brow, it seems she hasn't quite caught on yet, because she's eyeing her pitcher with more in mind.[INFO:]>Popularity: 2>Money: $26.25>Time: 1:30PM>[1 Hour/+1 Popularity] Subtly market your lemonade as not containing dirt.>[1 Hour/One 1d10+Popularity] Sell lemonade>Write-In

It seems lunch rush was a bit delayed today, because you manage to catch a wave of folk in the follow hour. The afternoon proves profitable to you, and you sell nine glasses of lemonade, four of them to one fellow who's best described as really flipping thirsty.Lulu on the other hand is becoming increasingly frustrated, as people pass by and spit out her lemonade again. You assume she's frustrated, that perpetual smiling makes it difficult to tell. She keeps making new batches but even the occasionally brownish tint in bad batches do nothing to tell her of your scheming."Why good evening my fair lady." Ah, the second most annoying kid in your fourth grade class. One above Nelson, but still nowhere near as bad as Johnny."Hey Carlyle," Lulu says, greeting the pompously dressed boy and his two friends, Rightie and Leftie. Leftie got his nickname from the misfortune of being born with a debilitating condition of being left-handed, Rightie got his nick-name from hanging out with Leftie."What might be the magnificient entrepreneur be engineering today?" Carlyle's father, a psychologist, uses a lot of big words in his every day speech. Carlyle, a bag of sticks, uses a lot of big words to sound smarter than he actually is."Huuuh? I'm selling lemonade, the money goes to charity.""Fantastic, I'll give you ten dollars to vivificate my compatriots and I," says Carlyle, taking out... holy smokes, it's a ten dollar bill! You've never held one before, you're pretty sure kids aren't supposed to handle bills bigger than their age, but Carlyle did turn ten recently didn't he."Okay, three glasses of lemonade coming right up," says Lulu, pouring them muddy citrus juices.[INFO:]>Popularity: 2>Money: $35.25>Time: 2:30PM>[Best of 2 1d10+Popularity(Target 8)] Reveal that Lulu's sugar is cut with mud>[1 Hour/One 1d10+Popularity] Sell lemonade>[30 Minutes] Wait for Carlyle and pals to find out the secret on their own and sell at regular price>Write-In

"Heeey Lulu." You saunter across the street, you're so cool you don't even look both ways before crossing. "I noticed that a lot of people were spitting out your lemonade earlier, do you know why?""I don't know, I think I'm grabbing bad lemons or something," says Lulu, picking up a perfectly fine piece of fruit and giving it two firm squeezes."Oh, I'm sure those simpletons just have no appetite for fine clasped fruit," Carlyle crosses his arms and nods, his lackeys imitate him as if he's the cat's meow. One of these days you're going to go to school and have a row of child-sized fedoras blocking your view."Maybe I'm not using enough sugar?" Oh Lulu, she's on the right track but she's heading the wrong way entirely."Fear not, I will endeavour to sample your delectable nectars," says Carlyle, revolting you with words you barely recognize. He picks up a cup, with one pinky out and sinks it down his throat. It's only a second that the disgust claws up his face, before he forces it down with the fakest of smiles. His mother was an actor wasn't she, he's a pure-bred weiner all the way. "It's... grrreeeeeat." Slow down there tiger.His two buddies shrug their shoulders before drinking, they spit it back up on the table instantly, splattering spittle on the table. "Yucky! It tastes like poop!" One of them says."I t'ink t'eres somet'ing wrong wit' your sugar," says the other, with a blade of grass sitting on his outstretched tongue."Hm?" Lulu picks up her sack and looks it over up and down. "It says all-natural, no preservatives...""Don't listen to them, the drinks are just fine." Carlyle places the ten on the table. It's so close, you can practically taste the powdery hands of whatever part-time worker held it last. "Come on guys, let's go get something to drink at the convenience store.">CONT

Someone no one has pointed the sign out to Lulu yet, Carlyle probably hushed his buddies so he can go all Fedora Ranger on Lulu.

"You know Carlyle, you did pay ten dollars for lemonade. Maybe you should drink up what you paid for maybe?" Your suggestion puts a look of horror on Carlyle's fakespectacled face."Oh I don't know about that, I mean, it is for charity and I am the charitable. That one glass was so delectable I think that Lulu has earned the money.""Don't worry, the lemons are home-grown which means they didn't cost anything," Lulu says, "and we got the organic sugar donated from my uncle's farm. Help yourself." Living across from her for years has made you immune to Lulu's evil smile, but those poor fools in your class are so easily bewitched by her. Carlyle particularly."W-well, if you would recommend it so determinedly..." He grabs two of the cups at once, downing both at once before taking the others like Johnny's dad drinks tiny cups on Saturday nights. "THERE! THAT WAS AMAZI-" Carlyle doesn't finish his sentence, his words turn to a gurgle before turning into pukey-stuff on Lulu's lawn."SICK!""NASTY!""SICK-NASTY!" You yell, following up Carlyle's friends' exclamations."Ah! Are you okay Carlyle!? I have a plant for that in the backyard." Lulu's face is twitching, but somehow the girl just keeps that semblance of a smile on. She'll probably sell houses someday with that, but she's not selling lemonade today.Carlyle doesn't have much of a response, he just gives her a pitiable head shake while his friends drag him away."Oooooh, my mom is going to be so angry if I don't clean this up." Lulu grabs a rag off her stand and gets to work.You start heading back to your stand, but take a pause just to keep her away from suspecting you. "Oh Lulu, it looks like someone messed with your sign. I wonder who would do something like that... oh wait, I think I remember Nelson poking around while TJ was chasing you.""Nelson? Ooooh, I'm going to have a talking with him later." Lulu shakes her head, gritting her smile as she works.>CONT

Your efforts are not in vain, as shallow as they were. Lulu's stand is out of commission through the whole hour as she squeezes vomit out of a rag and into a melted ice bucket, and then as she draws up a new sign on pink poster-board to paste over the wooden board you defiled.The 12-3 workforce returns bringing you great profit. Now it's all ones and twos that you're making, but a total of ten dollars earned throughout the hour makes you feel better about missing out on the texture of that ten-dollar bill. You're no thief though, just a businessman, the gosh darn best on the block.Just a little bit more and you'll earn yourself a copy of Super Quest Brothers. Apparently in the new one they're adding Mario from Stories of Warlocks, the game is a bit slow but it's just sooooo good!It's going to be time to close up soon though, and look who's coming home, it's Lulu's dad Vladimir. The guy's got a real mean look to him, apparently he's an army veteran."Something wrong my little Lulu?" He comes out of his car and runs over to his daughter, watching her struggle to paste her poster over the signboard."Nothing," she says, showing off the biggest smile of the day, "just fixing up my signboard.""Well... alright, keep it up then." He gives her a salute, before reaching into his wallet and pulling out a five. Ah, a five, not quite a ten but you held one of those once, it smelled like burgers and the best kind of shame."No daddy! Don't drink the lemonade!" She screams, as he reaches for a cup."Hm?" He stops, the edge of a cup just touching his lips.[INFO:]>Popularity: 2>Money: $45.25>Time: 4:30PM>[Best of 2 1d10+Popularity(Target 10)] Call Vladimir over to have your lemonade instead, his house is right there and he's awfully scary but...>[1 Hour/One 1d10+Popularity] Sell lemonade>[30 Minutes] Goad Vladimir on, maybe Lulu'll finally stop smiling!>Write-In

You keep quiet, focusing on how you'll get your last five bucks while Lulu tells her father about all that's gone wrong throughout the day."Well, I'll just have to find that Nelson and TJ and give their afthers a talking to. I'll apologize to Carlyle's family while I'm at it," Vladimir says."TJ doesn't have a father," says Lulu."Right, he's the ethnic one isn't he." Vladimir steps inside his house.The remaining hour doesn't go by well, it goes by amazingly. A band of hard-rockers through your block on the way home, you remember them as holding their usual practice in the late hours at their drummer's house, which you recall being right beside Johnny's. For someone who lives beside such rocking dudes, he sure does spend a lot of time coming to school tired and beaten, mostly beaten. The band doesn't just buy a few cups from you, they fill up their water bottles with lemonade, and leave you a good deal of loose change for it.You have it now, fifty-seven dollars, and that one quarter that you found under your pillow this morning, left by the nocturnal emission fairy. Whatever that means, you don't think much about it since you're earning cash for cleaning your own underwear.Your mother will be home soon and after you clean up and have your dinner--which now that you think about it would be the only thing you've had all day other than a terribly unhealthy amount of sugar and lemons, your father will take you to the midnight launch of Super Quest Brothers! There's no point selling any more lemonade, you take your stand apart to keep Nelson from messing with it and decide on how to spend the last half-hour of your day.[INFO:]>Popularity: 2>Money: $57.25>Time: 5:30PM>Wait for your mother>Write-In

>>34429564>about a possible mergerThis. I got here like 30 minutes ago and was shocked that no one proposed this at the threads start. In a few weeks of working together, we could easily earn enough for us to preorder the new Phony-Station5 or shaXboX 490.

Protag hates the girl. Don't be such white knights.
>>34429628Does he hate her more than he loves money? I doubt it. Besides we are probably going to screw her with the profit sharing.
>>34429628White knights? Man this is business, we sweeten the deal and do a takeover then we use her skills to make ourselves more money.

>>34429667Agreed, this quest has been awesome
>>34429667This is likely the most accurate portrayal of a child protag I have seen in a quest. Also, this is one of a handful of times I think I have ever laughed during a quest, so yeah.I kinda want a continuation of this quest, even if I know it would slowly but surely turn the MC into a beta faggot.
>>34429653Seriously. She gets free materials for one thing, so that cuts down our overhead. Also she nets us the entire fedora market, which sounds like a substantial gain.Are we going to have to pay mom back for the lemons and sugar? Because I will really regret giving away our extra cash if that is the case.
>>34429677Yesterday had powergaming german, salami sandwich was recent enough to still be fresh in my memory, and today we get lemonade. It's been good times for quests.
>>34429621Man all Flintendo makes now adays are games for babbys and fucking casuals. Protag needs his 1080p hyper-violence.
>>34429732remember that pizza racer oneshot?
>>34429732>>34429747Danken anons. I have been getting kind of burned out on questing recently, but this one and those other give me a bit of hope.
You're cold, but not heartless. You've won, so now you might as well show some good will and rub it in just a little bit. You grab your last pitcher of lemonade and make your way across the street."Rough day, huh?" You borrow two of your empty cups, pouring a drink of your superior product for yourself and one for Lulu."Heheh, I guess my luck was bad." Her eyes are a little bit red her messy clothes cling to her after all the running and extra work you made her do, but somehow she keeps that annoying smile on."Shame you can't sell it like I do." You toss five dollars in coins at her, soft enough not to hurt her, hard enough to make her know that you're great."Guess not." She sips at the lemonade, not paying much mind to your money."How about a merger then? Between you and me, we could run enough lemonade to buy all the new games! Start a lemonade factory, hire Johnny's dad, then fire him to hire Mexicans!""I don't know about that." She just doesn't get it does she."We'll make so much money we can start a charity, like, Shave the Children for underprivileged countries that can't afford razors.""I mean, I don't know what a merger is.""You and me, side by side! I'll make the money and you just prepare the lemonade for me when I come hom-back.""That's nice and all, but I do this for charity. I think you should ask Carlyle though, he really likes this business stuff." Lulu gets up, straightens her clothes out and gives you a big smile. "Thanks for talking to me, I feel a lot better now. I think I'll look over my recipe again, your lemonade was great.""But...""Your mom's home now so you should probably go get some dinner." Lulu waves you goodbye, before skipping into her house.You're left there alone on her porch."YEAH WELL! I DIDN'T WANT A MERGER ANYWAYS! YOUR LEMONADE IS DIRTY! AND STOP SMILING SO MUCH!" God, you hate that girl sooooooooo much...Well, maybe once you have the new Super Quest Brothers she'll notice it.>END

It's oveeeeer, thanks for playing.I'm really surprised this picked up as many players as it did, I was expecting like, 3 regular posts max with the premise as it is and how little room there was for agency. I didn't have the ending in mind when I started, or really anything at all other than a vague concept and what the relationship between the protagonist and Lulu was. I actually tried pretty hard to write it in mind with, "he has a puppy crush on her and teases her to deal with it." So I was pretty surprised no one started wondering about that when it picked up.>>34429732>>34429747I ran one of these.
>>34429944 Was it salami sandwich quest?
>>34429944I'm not gonna say you HAVE to start something long-term, because chances are the longer something goes the more people are going to form black and white opinions about it, leading to all kinds of drama and other shit nobody who just wants to write stories should deal with.It seems like you do well in the oneshot format, and you should stick with what you're good at.That said, if you decided to start something that might go for 30 or 50 threads, I'm sure it'd be worth it. For us, if not for you.
>>34429803This was great.
>>34429944That's good, I'm glad we acted on our puppy crush even if most of us didn't realize what he really felt
>>34429944>he has a puppy crush on her and teases her to deal with it." So I was pretty surprised no one started wondering about that when it picked up.Yeah I saw that pretty early. But still we are like 9 so I tried to vote with the idea in mind that 9 year old boys are kinda evil by default.
This was fun, thanks!
>>34425007>She giggles at your comment. "You're so funny," she says. Did you make a joke there? Is she playing mind-games on you? Your father warned you about women, and girls are just tiny women. Well, you're here any ways, you better..Oh this is lovely.
>>34429944don't forget to archive
>>34429843We weren't being white knights, we were being sore victors. And ambitious, with that merger proposal.
>>34429944>So I was pretty surprised no one started wondering about that when it picked up.I think that's reflective of how we players focused on the character's objectives.
>>34429803Best child protag since Runaway Quest.
>>34430168I actually worked at an elementary school for awhile and I'm currently bartending. It's an odd progression but it's been really handy in writing characters.
