Twitter Link: https://twitter.com/Geistalt______________________________You wake up in a Gothic-styled castle. You find yourself on the ground in a courtyard filled with roses. The fence encompassing the courtyard is decorated with lampposts with jack-o-lanterns on top of them. They each have black hats on.You recall what happened prior to waking up. Yuuki Terumi, some demonic entity who once created you to serve as a host for his soul, stabbed you in the back with the Causality Weapon Ouroboros while you attempted to ruin his plan by leading some girl named Noel Vermillion, a First Lieutenant of the NOL’s Fourth Thaumaturgist Squadron, away from him.You hear a quiet, feminine voice nearby."It appears as if our guest has risen from his repose."You turn to face the source of the voice and find a blonde girl with red eyes who appears to be hardly more than ten years old. She's dressed in a faux-Goth black dress with red crosses, and has a pair of black ribbons in her hair. With her are what appear to be a couple of living stuffed animals, one of which resembles a red-hued cross between a bat and a pig. The other is evidently modeled after a black cat.>"What happened?">"What day is it?">"Where am I?">"Who are you?">"Hello.">"Am I dead?">[write-in]
>>42889407>>"Hello.">"Who are you?">"Where am I?"I'm going to assume i'm not dead, since I really doubt the inside of the Cauldron has tea.
>>42890407>>"Machine? Please, explain more.">"What happened?">"What are you?">"I take it your butler is not just a butler."
"Pleased to meet you," you tell the girl. "Would you mind telling me your name? And where exactly am I?""I don't usually introduce myself to strangers so quickly, but I suppose I ought to give you my name, considering how long you've spent under my care. My name is Rachel Alucard," she introduces herself. "It's a pleasure to meet you, as well. This realm, Moonlight Castle, is my domain."It's at about this time that you notice the vivid moon scintillating overhead. You wonder what she means by "this realm." Are you on Earth, or somewhere in the Boundary?"We're not in the Boundary, in case you're curious," Rachel comments, continuing, "Rather, this is a reality that I Observe, much like the machine that controls your own. You exist here because I allowed it.""Madam Rachel, I've finished preparing your tea," some butler declares as he approaches the girl, carrying a teacup. He sets it on an adjacent table. He appears quite old.>"That doesn't make any sense.">"Machine? Please, explain more.">"Who's the old guy?">"What happened?">"What day is it?">"What are you?">[write-in]
>>42890459Well, deleting that post was pointless.And I've felt dissuaded from giving the Twitter link, since, of course, it's not like anyone actually follows that Twitter account.Here's a link to the last thread.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/42866440/I considered making [write-in] an implied option (so I wouldn't have to bother typing out that people can make their own suggestions), but I wasn't willing to follow through with that.While I'm at it, I might as well acknowledge another flaw in the previous thread. In post >>42868098, when I typed "wearing a white mask on," I'd typed out "with a white mask on" in its stead beforehand and altered it due to the fact that using "with" multiple times in the same sentence would've been repetitive. The flaw is that I forgot to delete "on."
>>42890670>"Machine? Please, explain more.">"What happened?" >"What day is it?">"What are you?"
You ask, "What machine? Please, tell me more.""The construct that Observes your world, Takamagahara, was created by humans to replace the god who already did: the Master Unit, Amaterasu.""What, pray tell, is that supposed to mean?" you request."Observation... is the ability to behold interactions between any number of things from a given point in time until one attains a desired result," Rachel responds hesitantly.Your mind spins with questions as you contemplate how any being capable of doing that could bend the fate of the world however they desire, asking "What happened?" in the meanwhile."I was just about to relate that," Rachel replies. "While Yuuki Terumi was busy manipulating Noel Vermillion's mind to convince her to pursue Ragna the Bloodedge, I brought you here.""What exactly are you?" you ask."The answer should have been blatant. I am a vampire," she answers.You imagine how old she might be, responding, "You're serious.""Why wouldn't I be?" she demands, apparently offended."I take it your butler is not just a butler," you comment.The old man looks somewhat unnerved.She answers, "Let me introduce you to Valkenhayn R. Hellsing. He happens to be one of the Six Heroes.""You should deem yourself privileged to have an audience with Madam Rachel, let alone to be introduced to her within a minute of encountering her," Valkenhayn states.>"Noted.">"What does Terumi want, anyways?">"Why haven't I heard from Kokonoe?">[write-in]
>>42891548>"Noted."Bow like a proper gentleman>"What does Terumi want, anyways?"I assume Kokonoe is not allowed in which is why she's not currently yelling at me?
>>42889407isn't this the game with a confusing story that makes no sense
"Understood," you respond, bowing before them."Well, it appears as if this shell has some sense of propriety," Valkenhayn contently declares, resuming, "I commend your efforts to behave like a proper gentleman.""Would you kindly tell me what day it is?" you ask."It's the first day of January," she replies.You respond, "I'm surprised I recovered so quickly.""Time moves about one fourth as quickly here as it does in your world," Rachel replies. "Although being made from an Azure Grimoire allowed you to heal more quickly than an ordinary human, you've spent over three days in this realm.""What does Terumi want, anyways?" you ask."That man... His desire is to fill the world with as much misery as it can possibly withstand," she replies. "Although, if you were referring to what he desired at the moment you went unconscious in particular, he attempted to preclude the time reset Takamagahara would've enacted by sending Noel Vermillion to rescue Ragna the Bloodedge."You think quickly, responding, "So, she had to rescue Ragna to prevent the world from resetting. Then I suppose all the work I did was for naught. Ah, well.""Correct," Rachel answers, "although you can still be of aid."You mention, "I take it that the reason Kokonoe isn't currently yelling at me is because she and her attempts to communicate aren't allowed in here.""You're correct yet again," Rachel replies. "This place exists outside of Logic, which is to say that even communication ars cannot permeate it if I refuse to witness it, nor can any other form or use of seithr.">"Does everything found in the Boundary need an Observer?">"I'm ready to get to work.">"What do you intend to have me help with?">[write-in]
>>42893269>>"Does everything found in the Boundary need an Observer?">"What do you intend to have me help with?"
"Does everything found in the Boundary need an Observer?" you ask."Yes," Rachel answers. "If anything wasn't Observed, it would immediately cease to exist, and the moment one becomes an Observer, such as Kokonoe, is the moment one begins Observing oneself. Everything that exists must be Observed by someone.""Was Kokonoe an Observer before she found me?" you ask.Rachel responds, "Of course she was.""Before you send me back to Kagutsuchi, I'd like to know: what do you intend to have me help with?" you ask."There are a few lost souls you can help mend," Rachel answers, "and I would like to see what Kokonoe has in store for you.">"What did Noel save Ragna from?">"I'm ready.">[write-in]
>>42893301I'll also admit to having deleted that post and replacing it with >>42893299.
>>42893889If you would suffer one last question>"What did Noel save Ragna from?"And thank you Lady Alucard
"If you would be kind enough to suffer it, I have one final question: what did Noel save Ragna from?" you ask Rachel Alucard."In a sense, she saved Ragna from himself," Rachel answers. "He activated his Azure Grimoire when he went to the basement of the Kagutsuchi NOL branch. Every time he did that before attempting to destroy the Cauldron, he awakened a Murakumo Unit named Nu-13. If it hadn't been for Noel, he would have fallen into the Cauldron, fused with Nu-13, and become a new Black Beast. The only timelines in which Takamagahara has ever Observed the world beyond that date are those in which the Black Beast isn't recreated.""I see..." you reply, vaguely recalling that Murakumo Units are the tenth Nox Nyctores Causality Weapons. You swiftly conclude that they must have been specifically designed to destroy universal Observers. "I appreciate that you put up with giving me information this long, Lady Alucard. Thanks for letting me know.""It's hardly any trouble for me; least of all here..." she responds. "But you really must be going, now," Rachel finishes, opening a portal to Kagutsuchi.
