Cirrus still seems nervous, what with having been recently kidnapped. Aiko and her sister emerge from the guest room to see what the huge commotion is about."I see everything worked out." The serious-looking man on the couch says, standing up and beckoning his son. "Then I think we all have preparation to do."I am Itsukuma Masami. The principal is right, we've wasted nearly half of the day and we're not any closer to finding a solution to our Asai problem. He breaks out of his prison today, and no one seems to have a really good solution.I'm about to try my first plan. Which was creating a card that can turn Asai into a person, as he's apparently a human-shaped monster right now. After that, we can just hand him over to the police. It seems like a good idea, but results have been mixed. I've been able to turn a monster into a human, but not KEEP him as a human. That seems like an important detail I need to fix. Speaking of which, that same monster is still sulking in the corner of the room. He really wanted to be a person, too."So, what do we do first?" "Well first;" Mom interrupts, "You're grounded from sweets for the rest of the week." "What!? Why!?" "Because. " She takes the cookie jar I set down on the table and puts it on the refrigerator. "I think your excuses for your sweet-tooth are cute, not acceptable." She huffs.>"But MOOOOM!">"I'll argue with you later! Let's talk about everyone's plan and see which one is the least crazy!" >"Kaori! Back me up on this! I'm a good girl!" >"What about my card idea!? Don't you think that's the best idea?" >"Were you serious when you said we should stay away from Fortune, earlier?">Other?
>>42707381>"Were you serious when you said we should stay away from Fortune, earlier?"
>>42707381>"But MOOOOM!">"Kaori! Back me up on this! I'm a good girl!"
>>42707381>>"I'll argue with you later! Let's talk about everyone's plan and see which one is the least crazy!"
>>42707381>"But MOOOOM!">"What about my card idea!? Don't you think that's the best idea?"
>"But MOOOOM!">"Kaori! Back me up on this! I'm a good girl!">"My card idea isn't crazy, is it?!"Writing!
"But- But-" No sweets, for a week!? "But MOOOOOM!" "No." She sips a glass of water. "Kaori!" I spin around and face my sister, "Back me up on this! I'm not a bad girl!" "She offered me a cookie." Kaori tries to suppress a smile.Kaori! You're the worst! I go to nudge her, but then I notice Mom is staring right at me. "She tried to give me one, too!" Emillion sits in the kitchen. "Uh! Um!" I try to change the subject, maybe they'll forget that I'm in trouble! "My card idea, though! I was working on it when you were gone, don't you think it's the least crazy idea?" Mom puts her glass down, and pats me on the head. "It's not a bad idea, it's just we can't get it to work. Don't you think we should focus on another idea if we can't get it to work?" "But we really haven't tried it yet! We only tried it once, Mom!" "Masami." She says, sternly. "I'm sorry Masami, but we don't have that much time left. We spent all morning on the card idea. I think-" Mom stops, leaning against the table."I think Kaori and the Principal are right. We need to think about what is most likely to save the city at this point. Maybe alerting the military to it, or trying to think of a way to immobilize it. We could try trapping it inside of another shield downtown. ""I don't want to do that though, that's just putting the problem off, Mom!" Mom kneels down to about my eye level, "Sweetie, I know you're serious about this. But this is a big problem that's too big for you. I think you should stay home today, away from Asai, away from Fortune. We'll handle this." I cross my arms, and put on the most pouty face I can imagine."No.""Masami, please. Please don't put yourself at risk, there are a lot of people that might get hurt already. Please don't be one of them.">"You're not giving me enough credit! (Run away)">"Fffine (Mope)">"Okay! (Lie!)">"Julie! Haruko!" (Make someone else decide for you)>Don't say anything>Other?
>>42708275>"You're not giving me enough credit! (Run away)"Adorably dumb she may be, but Masami is not useless.
>>42708275>"You're not giving me enough credit! (Run away)"ESCAPE
>>42708275>"You're not giving me enough credit! (Run away)"hmm, i wonder if we'll go ax crazy again at some point...
>>42708275>"Okay! (Lie!)"Mom doesn't know what's good for her!
>"You're not giving me enough credit! (Run away)"Writing!What do you think about Larro's piece? I like it!
>>42708419 thread 50, against the chairman
>>42708466what are you talking about? a new artwork?
>>42708466It's pretty cute but it looks a little older or sharper or something than I picture Masami.
The edges of my mouth are curling. "Wh-what?! But, my plan!" "It's a good plan, but now isn't the time." My face is starting to burn, very lightly."Wait! We can make this happen! We just need to try again, I'm almost there!" "Don't get emotional, Masami." Kaori crosses her arms. "This isn't against you, this is because we don't have a lot of time to mess around with this." "I don't see you having a better plan!" "Masami, I think this time we need to stop worrying about it." Kaori grumbles, "You're not the kind that can make plans, anyway." Why does that hurt so much?"I can make a plan!" "Can not!" Kaori nudges me, "You're always best when you're just going with the flow anyway." Is my OWN FAMILY saying that they don't believe in me? Why did I just sniffle? "Mom, Kaori!" I wipe my eyes across the sleeve of my coat. "This isn't fair! I've gone and looked at everyone else's plans, and they sucked!""Masami.." Mom leans in to hug me. I pull away at the last minute! Instead, I rush toward the door to my room! "You'll see!" I yell back at them, trying to conceal my reddened face, "I'll fix everything You guys never give me credit, but I've made everything fine so far, right!?" "Masami, wait!" I slam the door behind me and lean against it. My hands come up to my face and rub my eyes. Maybe I over-reacted just a bit. But that's so RUDE! I can't do anything right!? I'm not good at making plans!? My plans have all worked so far, right!?'Just leave it to the humans'. Is that what they're saying? What can they do against Asai, they don't know anything about him."They're just so DUMB sometimes!" I stomp my foot. "Um." I hear a weak voice. Uh oh, someone was already in here! "Huh? Who!?" but, I can't see them.The covers slowly move, and I see a barely-visible girl sit up."I'm trying to sleep, can you keep it down?" >"MIR! Want to help me!?" >"NO!" >Lay down in bed, contemplate.>Apologize, then complain to her.>Other?
>>42709061>"MIR! Want to help me!?"
>>42708466If feeling human emotions is what makes monsters turn into people should we just make a card that makes them feel emotions have it run the monster subjected to it's effects run the emotional gambit. We can design it to look like a tharipists office complete with the couch, and the outfit would be a doctors white coat with glasses it's weapon a raygun that makes people feel every emotion. We can call it Sigmund.
>>42708466Masami sure looks cute.Looks a little older than I imagine her yeah.
>>42709061>Apologize, then complain to her>"MIR! Want to help me!?".
>>42709061>Lay down in bed, contemplate.
>>42709103That's not how therapy works.
>>42709061>Apologize, then complain to her.>Lay down in bed, contemplate.
>>42709103Und how doz thiz make you feel der Asai?" "..." "I see, well ze issue you dealing wiz iz suppressed atraction to ze empress, correct? Yes, so do you have issues wiz you mother?" ". . ." "Ah, very good you see it iz simple once confronted I need you to say it out loud. Say I um attracted ze empress whp reminds me pf my mother. Once ze iz done the healing can begin."
>>42709223Sigmund Freud, all ways bring it back to the mother.
>Apologize, then complain to her.>Lay down in bed, contemplate.>"MIR! Want to help me!?".Maybe next piece of art I commission should be Masami in a two-piece suit with a lab coat, a fake white beard, mustache, and a bubble-gum cigar.
>>42709412Yes also with gladses because of mpe reasons.
>>42709447*moe not mpe
My frown isn't going away, but a part of me recognizes that nothing right now is her fault. "I'm sorry." I bow lightly as I walk toward the bed. "I didn't know you were trying to sleep.""It's okay- just shut the door on your way out." The figure made of, I don't know, some kind of invisible liquid, wraps the blanket around herself and flops back down.I keep heading toward the bed and flop down right next to her."NO ONE THINKS I CAN DO ANYTHING!" "(PLEASE don't be so loud, it really hurts my ears.)" "Oh, oh. Sorry." I cross my arms. "But it's so irritating! Shouldn't they be the most supportive?!" "(Were you stealing from the cookie jar again..?)" The translucent figure mumbles in a sleep-like daze."No! Well. Maybe. But that's not why they're mad!" Wait a minute.I look over and notice that she's almost gone. Completely disappeared into the sheets."Are you trying to hide from me!?" "(Mphpmphf.)" Is the response I get.Oh! That just makes me mad!I grab at.. something! Then I sit her upright. It's kind of creepy, it's like my hand is grabbing something, but it's not there."Come ooon! Be more visible so I can talk to you!" "(mmphf.)"Slowly, an outline fades into existence. I can almost see a black-dress. But her skin, it's still see-through. Her voice is still quiet. "Go on!" I say, "I want to see my sister, I don't get to see you at all!" "(I want to but-)" she coughs slightly, "(I can't. This is the best I can do. I can't 'turn it off'.)""What? You can't get any more see-able!?" "(I tried earlier, but then I scared someone when I walked out into the room, they said a 'Predator' was after them. I didn't know what that was so I came back in here and hid.)""You can't-"Suddenly, I get an idea!"MIR! Want to help me?""(How?)">I'm gonna cure your invisible-ness, it might be because you're not fully human!>We're gonna sneak into Fortune! >You're gonna help me draft a new card! >I don't know, how can you help?>Other?
>>42709561>We're gonna sneak into Fortune! Curing is later!
>>42709561>We're gonna sneak into Fortune!
>>42709561>>I'm gonna cure your invisible-ness, it might be because you're not fully human!
>>42709561>You're gonna help me draft a new card!Sisterly drafting!Mir is cutest of them all.Gotta sleep now but thanks for running HotC.
>>42709561>I'm gonna cure your invisible-ness, it might be because you're not fully human!
>We're gonna sneak into Fortune!Writing!>>42709650Have a nice night!
>>42709819Darn it, hold on. The page didn't update when I did that.>I'm gonna cure your invisible-ness, it might be because you're not fully human!Writing! with this instead!
"So you haven't been able to turn visible again, huh."That doesn't make sense. Everyone I know that turned human didn't have this much of a bad reaction to it. Emillion is like a small boy, almost indistinguishable.Kaori is just a normal girl.Julie and Haruko are like two bratty twins.So why is Mir not transforming? Is she.. stuck? I don't know how else to put it."Do you feel human, Mir?" "(What do you mean?)""It's-" I try to think of the right words to convey this, "Well, everyone else is normal, Mir. They don't have their powers trying to take over their body.""(I guess I'm not normal then.)" She curls back into the covers.I sit her up and shake her off. "You are normal! And so am I! And Mom! And Sis! All of us are normal, and-" Wait."Maybe.. The reason you're not becoming visible is because you're not fully human?" "(Um, is that how it works?)""I think so!" Yeah, that's close enough! "(What do we do then, I can't just become someone else.)" "No, but maybe I can make you someone else!"Instantly, she scurries to the other side of the bed."(T-that sounds scary!)" "Wait! It really isn't!""(I don't want you changing who I am!)" "Hold on, it's not bad! It's just like I did with the monsters!""(Did they want you to do it!?)""N-No, but it happened anyway!" "(I don't want it!)" "I haven't even told you what I was going to do yet." "(What, then!?)">I'm going to edit you, just like I do the cards! Science! >I'm going to look at you in the other world, maybe I can see something there.>Take off your clothes! I want to check!>Other?
>>42710484>I'm going to look at you in the other world, maybe I can see something there.
>>42710484>I'm going to look at you in the other world, maybe I can see something there.No being pervy anons!
>>42710484>I'm going to look at you in the other world, maybe I can see something there.the third option was really tempting... for other reasons
>I'm going to look at you in the other world, maybe I can see something there.Writing!
Third option would have been funny, though
"Okay. I think I got it! We'll both go to the other world!" "..(I don't like that place. It sounds scary)""It's not scary! It's a great place, that's very peaceful! It's just the best place if you want to get a look at how magic things are behaving.""(Is that all?)""That's all!" She scoots closer to me on the bed. "(Okay, I'll give it a try!)""Great!" This is perfect, if I can fix Mir then maybe I can show Mom that my card plan is gonna work! --"Hmm.""What is it?" "Just as I thought!" I snap my finger.Mir takes some time to examine the nice new mansion which she finds herself in. She sits on the wonderfully made couch, and carefully picks up one of the cushions."This feels, so real." "No no, I mean look at yourself!"She stands up, doing a slight twirl as she does so. This girl, for the first time ever, is perfectly visible. This may be the first time I've seen my new little sister! "..I can see myself.""YEAH! It's working! I am right! I know it! This card is the right track, and I'm onto something!" "T-then." She struggles weakly over my grasp. "H-How are you going to use it to fix me?""One thing at a time, Mir! Right now-"I stop, my head has caught something suspicious outside of the window. It's far away in the distance, but it's important enough to loosen the hug around my sister. I make my way to the front door to my fantasy mansion. There's something missing in the other world. Something that has been a staple every time I've come here."Oh no.""What?! Did something go wrong? Are we stuck!?" "No, no. But something is wrong."The tower, the one that houses Fortune HQ. It's always been visible in this world, no matter where I went. It was always there."What?!" "It's gone." I say, a sinking feeling deep in my heart. It seems so strange not to see it. I was just here a few hours ago, and I remember it perfectly then.But then..If it's gone from the other world, then where is it in the real world? >Thread End
Thanks for the thread everyone! I'm not sure if I'll be able to run Saturday. It's a toss-up due to a family emergency. I'll definitely try, but if it doesn't work out, I'm sorry.Until next time! Let me know what you thought of the thread!
>>42711389oh shit >>42711421thanks for running
>>42711421Thanks for running.
>>42711421Thanks for the thread! Cute times are fun times, and invisimouto is definitely cute.Our complete inability to do anything constructive with regard to Fortune is a bit worrying, but I kinda agree with Kaori that Masami works best in the moment. Our plans are still great though!
