You are Samantha Smith and Blah, Blah, Blah, by now you people should know that you were once a chubby teenage girl, who went to fatcamp, tried to turn her life around, and wound up with a pancake skull after landing on a rock. But hey, not everything sucked cause you wound up reborn in a fantasy world as a Harpy to a happy family with whom you’ve already had a bunch of fun adventures, including several near death experiences and a snake on your foot. Right now, you are hidden just outside your parent’s room, listening in on their conversation, they seem to be talking about the family and maybe you? Or is it your twin? Either case, it seems that your mother is wanting to take you on a trip with her and…“Alright Steven, I’ll go talk with our daughters.”“Aight, honey, I’ll keep watch over Jr. then, git some good ol’ father-son bonding.”You hear your mother give a tittering laugh.“He’s a fledgling Steven, he barely knows up from down.”“Bah, won’ stop me from having a fun time wit me son.”“Well I’ll go gather the girls and tell them the news, just, keep him safe alright?”“Cross my heart love.”You hear the sound of the two of them kissing. Which means Mom is probably going to come out here pretty soon, as long as they don’t take it too far like they always seem to do, maybe you should head back to the nursery so they don’t know you’ve been sneaking.>Nah, they always take it too far, more exploring>Yeah, it’s probably for the best>No way, they still probably think you are crazy from the reveal, time for this chick to fly>Write in

Calling and WRITINGNice to see you all again.
>>45643867Good to see you to chief
>>45643897Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Tony Hawk.
>>45643511You decide that it would probably be for the best if your parents found you where they left you, after all, you can only run away from home so many times before they eventually just get sick of it. You decide to slip back to the nursery before they find out. So, taking a few steps back you think you hear movement from inside the room and, you literally hightail it back as fast as your little taloned feet can carry you, wind rushing through your hair and feathers as you hurry back to the safety of the nursery. Getting there you dive, headfirst, into the pile of white furry fluff and feathery down that constitutes a makeshift bed and blanket, sending puffs flying in all directions that gently drift back down to the ground. Using your wings, you quickly bring all of it back into the pile and settle down inside, only the top of your head and wings poking out from the sides. It takes a moment, you can hear your family members moving through the house, but you keep still, they’ll come for you soon enough, and its best to play the part like you never heard a word about what your parents were saying, well you might, but for now its probably best to continue pretending to be an innocent chick with over active Genetic Memory or whatever it was your Mom said, you know the truth.Within short order you hear the sticks behind you crunch.“Sister, Heeey, Hey Sister” You hear the voice of your twin call out from behind you.“Mom wants to see us in the main nest. Says she has a surprise for us.”How do you reply?>Grumpy (That no one believed you)>Inquisitive (As to what the surprise is, even if you know)>Don’t reply (Continue to sulk or pretend to?)>Excited (Yay!

>INB4 Sis actually believes usI'm wondering whether we can articulate that we couldn't use the words we were trying to?
Seems Sam is still sulking.WRITING
>>45644635Yeah, I'm glad it didn't become a big drama-inducing thing either. But it is a moral imperative to train our folks to not to be too dismissive of us! They've only been parents for roughly a week now, so this is an important time in their training. If we get too loose with them now, we'll never be able to correct their bad behavior.
>>45644635I find it far funnier that we can't figure out how to say certain words.
>>45644440You keep your back turned to your twin, no, you know what they want to do, they want to try and distract you from the fact that no one of them believed you when you said you had memories from a past life as a human and came from another world. Treating you like you are some kind of over-imaginative little kid or something. You give a “Humph!” of dissatisfaction and lower yourself a bit deeper into the pile of fluff, the soft white down tickling you, you try your hardest to keep on a small scowl.“Sister, hey, are you ignoring me? Come on, is this cause of earlier? Are you grumpy Mom and Dad put you in time out and not me?” Your sister questions, you can feel her, hopping to and fro on the branches behind you, disturbing your fluff pile! How dare she! You huff again, that is sure to get her to leave you alone, clearly you will make it obvious that yes, this is about earlier, but no, its cause nobody listened to you,, and when your sister said she remembered stuff, everyone believed her right away. “Hey, Hey!” “Heeeey!” You wonder if this is how annoying you are to her in the morning, when she just wants to sleep in. You really wish she would just leave the nursery right about now so that way you can- You feel… a disturbance in the fluff…Turning to your side you see that your sister has come to join you in the pile, the white poofs covering her almost entirely save her wings and the top of her head. “Sis… you gotta come, Mom said she wants all of us. And if not I’m gonna stay riiight Here. Until you stop acting funny and come out there with me.” Feathers go flying from where her mouth is located and float softly on the wind.>Relent, go with your sister.>No!

>>45645679Calling for SULK.Writing
Oh jeez.What would Mom do if we revealed that we remembered how we died?
In retrospect, I suppose we might not have the right target for all this sulking, seeing as Dad was the one that was dismissive about it, yet he has nothing to do with this upcoming trip. Mom was just kinda shocked by the story.But still, emotions! We were just answering the question by baring our soul, and we got shushed and put back to bed because of it! There must be a reckoning, a fluffy feathery reckoning!
>>45646280That... might actually be convincing.Near as I can tell, genetic memories aren't supposed to come from a single person. Having a firm death experience might push her and Dad further towards believing that we're an actual reincarnation, even if they don't understand that we're from a different world.
>>45646623I don't think Mom has any actual problem with believing us, though. She mostly just seemed shocked, and later doubtful of her husband's explanation. Dad's the one who laughed at the story and shushed us and put us to bed.
>>45646785She didn't say that she believed us, though, just that Steven's suggestion of memory coming down from the human side was unprecedented.Plus if she did believe us, telling her that we remember how we died would only reinforce her confidence that we aren't simply confused about the genetic memory.
>>45646785I still think Steven's reaction was suspicious. Even when I was spouting complete bullshit as a little kid, my parents would always play along with it for at least a little while; they never did an outright dismissal like he did.
>>45645679Nope, you are having none of it! None of it you say! You twin is trying to play the cute sister card to get you to quit sulking. But that’s not gonna work, you are a master of bottling your emotions and giving the cold shoulder to the world, you’re a sixteen year old girl after all. You simply pout and turn away from your sister. The nest lies quiet, only the rustle of leaves and a soft wind whistling through the canopy keeping you company for a brief stitch of time, it seems that your twin has decided to stay. After a moment of silence she finally speaks up.“Sis, what are you even doing?”“I’m sulking, what does it look like I’m doing?”“Looks like your grumpy and sitting in bed.”“Well Yeah, cause I’m sulking.”“…Oh…”The silence returns between the two of you, you feel your sister shift in the fluff pile, twitching her wings, then you feel her reel back. “Achoo!” she sneezes.“Bless you.”“Hunh?”“Bless you, its… it’s a saying that I remember. Whenever someone sneezes you just, kinda say it.”“Ah… hey Sis, you said you remembered a buncha stuff right?”She doesn’t know the half of it, you roll your eyes. “Yeah, I remember a whole past life, from another world too, where there was electric carriages and humans could fly in big metal tubes with wings. You… You believe me right?” You question your sister, turning to look at her.She returns a different look, one that seems almost passive, neutral. She shrugs with her wings, lifting up two whole piles of fluff in the process. “I mean, maybe? I dunno, but does it really matter? We are sisters. That’s all that matters to me, I mean I have memories too but, I don’t think on them much, they are just sortsa there.” You give a small pout, that, while sweet, wasn’t exactly the response you were hoping for from her.1/2
>>456470262/2“Look Sis, you’re the best twin a girl could ask for…” you begin.This illicits a happy little titter and chirp from your sister, which makes it all the harder for you to bring down the second part of the sentence.“But I think you should go have fun with Mom and Ciel, Its not you, I just, I just want some time alone.”Your sister seems crestfallen at this. “Oh… well, no can do Sis. I said I wasn’t leaving till you came with. Guess we are both gonna sit an sulk today.” She herself has a small pout on her face, no doubt saddened on missing out on whatever the big surprise is.>Ok, enough sulking, besides, you can’t handle the guilt>Sulk Twins Activate>Write In
>>45646864When we were answering her question, she seemed "rapt with interest, slightly shocked in fact". And when responding to her husband's theory, she was " both shocked, frightened, and excited all at the same time". None of that seems to indicate disbelief.Meanwhile, she already seems worried about her poor little girl and the burden of all that genetic memory on her, so it might be rough on her to suddenly bring up memories of death via falling.
>>45647055>>Ok, enough sulking, besides, you can’t handle the guilt

>>45647055>Ok, enough sulking, besides, you can’t handle the guiltI'm absolutely certain that she's deliberately guilt tripping us, but GODDAMN IT WE CAN'T RISK THE CUTE

>>45647055Calling for your Weakpoint being struck for massive damage. Writing.
Hello thread!Reminder that we still don't know which name is which-twin shenanigans ho!
>>45647414>>45647439We're obviously Mii
>>45647414>>45647439>“I do worry about Mii though… all that Genetic Memory, it must be a burden for my sweet littlest girl.”
>>45647470But we aren't littlest!We won the wrestling match! We are big twin!
I think regardless of who we actually are, name switches are in our future.
>>45647782Oh mai mii mai?
>>45647645>>45647729Mom apparently has little respect for the sacred rituals of establishing sisterly hierarchy.She probably lost _her_ wrasslin' match when she was a chick.
>>45647830And then evolved so hard that her mother is always asking her to do stuff? How high up the evolutions ladder is our mom?
>>45647881Some sort of legendary bird, so probably tier 3 or 4.
>>45647990She's a 4 Sigil said so. Gumma is a 5
>>45648043So mom is the only one of her kids that amounted to anything, and is still more powerful than her. Oh man, Grandma's got twice the ability to boss her around.
>>45648099Though that begs the question of why Gram apparently constantly calls on Mom to do shit.Tier 5 is fucking demigod, unless she got crippled somehow I doubt she has any actual reason to keep bothering Mom.
>>45647055You look to your twin, her little pout, her hung head, all the floof snuggled around her, she seems so disappointed, your heart, fed on cat videos and gifs of little girls having fun basically screams at you for being a terrible sister and ruining your twin’s fantastic day to come. And just like that, you can’t take it anymore. With a sigh, you stand back up, out of the bedding.“Alright Sister, I’ll go, I’ll go…” You groan, you won’t like it but you’ll do it for her.Her expression brightens a bit at this. “Really?” she looks up to you, not leaving the pile just yet.“Yeah, come on, we’ll go see Mom.” You relent, really unable to resist your twin’s demeanor, your little frown flip-turns upside down, and becomes a small smile.Your twin however practically beams, and stands up rapidly, throwing her wings around you in a hug. “Yay!” she shouts in excitement, squeezing you with her poofy feathers, and pulling you close. You return in kind, snuggleing against her like you have so many times before releasing and- wait… was that a smirk? Did you just see a smirk? No, no it must have just been your imagination playing tricks on you.Your twin, for once, leads the way as the two of you head back to the nest proper. Where you find your Mother and sister Ciel waiting for the two of you.“Oh, there my little twins are. I was just about to come looking for you two, well good. Now that we have everyone gathered together, there is something I wanted to tell you.”The three of you look to your mother with various amounts of interest, you with the least seeing as you already know what she is going to say next. 1/2
>>45648169Gramma probably doesn't want to be bothered and wants the only daughter that actually amounted to anything to take care of things.
>>456482242/2“I’m taking the three of you out on your first hunt, you can all fly now so I have decided that the best course of action would be to teach you how to catch food like a proper Harpy, for if and when you finally…” Your mother pauses in her speech and looks away for a moment, as if lost in thought.“Oh right, hunting, the three of you will follow me in a pattern like this.” She holds her wings in an upside down V shape, “With Mii and Mai on either side of me and Ciel taking up the rear on a side of her choice. We have a little ways to fly, but I don’t want you getting tired on the way there after all we are heading to-“Where does Mom say?>The shallower part of the woods.

>>45648237Tallying and Writing. And sadly getting close to my limit here tonight, my lack of sleep is catching up to me. Might try for a weekend thing to make up for it.

>>45648237“-the hills to the north, I’m sure all of you have seen them be it on your flights or climbing to the top of the tree.” She looks to you and your twin as she says this a smile that says, don’t think I’ve forgotten your antics so soon.Your twin gives a nervous giggle and fidgets in place but you remain stoic, you know what you did, and you’d do it again, infact, every day is a new adventure to you and you aren’t going to apologize for it. “The flight will be long, and the monsters there dangerous for little harpies such as yourselves, so the entire time you are to stick to me like sap. But it is the best place for me to show you how this world works and also where the best game is for our family of six.” Your mother explains astutely, waggling her wing talon as she does so. Your mother then walks around behind the three of you, “Now to the nest edge, hurry hurry, like I said it’s a very long trip for my very little harpies. And we want to have you back before bedtime.” She edges you forwards with her large white wings. “Steven, I’m headed out with the girls. We’ll be back later, there is some Uni-bunny left over by the load bearer for the right wing of the nest if the little one gets hungry.”“Aye! See ya soon Honey!” he calls back to her from across the nest.“Alright, on the count of three I’m going to push each of you out, ready? Ciel, One, Two, Three!” Your mother shouts, giving Ciel a little shove and Off she goes, taking flight up into the sky to circle round the nest for the rest of you.1/2
>>456492822/2“Alright, Mii, One,” Wait, you still don’t know which one of you is Mii and which one of you is Mai. “Two” She said the littlest, but you won the wrestling match, so it has to be your sister right? “Three!” You feel a shove on your backside as you are pushed from the nest and into open air. Well, looks like that answers that question. You think, as you speed towards the ground for a bit before your instincts take over and you wings catch the wind…________Thats all for tonight folks. Sticking around for Q&A till I pass out.
>>45649294well, now we know. also we can screw with people who ask us who we are. that joke will never get old.
>>45649294>inb4 one of the tactics she teaches us for hunting is grabbing something, ligiting it high into the air, and dropping it headfirst onto a large rockThat'll be a fun PTSD attack for everyone involved.
>>45649294What is the largest evolution of Harpy?
>>45649431...Well, it'd be a nice segue into talking about how we remember our own death.
>>45649334Indeed>>45649431Nah, Anon why would I have that?>>45649459Love you too.>>45649527Roc Harpy or one of its variants.
>>45649564What is this from anyways?
>>45649564So what tier 2 are we heading too if we maintain course?
>>45649564Because it's a tactic actual eagles use for killing turtles and shit, and Mom isn't privy to our memories of our death to know we might be traumatized by it.
>>45649294Thanks for the thread!>>45649431Hah! Yeah, that might be a bit rough on poor Mii. Though I imagine it's also a fairly dangerous tactic anyway, as the prey could strike back hard between the grab and the drop.
>>45649611It's usually used on 'less dangerous' prey, like turtles or crabs or armadillos.
>>45649564>Roc Harpy or one of its variants.Nah ZIZ HARPY IS THE LARGEST!
>>45649655Link if you don't know what a Ziz is.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ziz
>>45649596Try and figure it out, look at what you've rolled well on, and also, the fights you pick will determine things.>>45649609>>45649611>>45649645Gravity is a cruel, but equal opportunity Mistress.>>45649655>>45649675Hmmm... big.
>>45649768I really hope it's a big harpy, Since we've been doing stuff that'd lead to it, Since we rolled really good at wrestling and fighting.
>>45649909>Fighting means bigStop reaching so hard for your shitty evolution path.
>>45649927>HUEG BIRBS are shittyPlease get your pleb peasant ass outta here.
>>45649958They're cool when they're birds, but I think it's a shit evolution path for a quest. It's obnoxious and cumbersome, as well as providing the least interesting benefit of all possible benefits.
>>45649958It's not taste when it's objectively right
>>45649977>It's obnoxious and cumbersome, as well as providing the least interesting benefit of all possible benefits.That's your opinion, Let me guess you always vote for shit mage paths don't you?
>>45650001Let me guess, you're the same guy that kept trying to shove giant spider down everyone's throat back in RE:Monster, aren't you?See, I can Ad Hominem too.
>>45649996And you're fucking dumb anon, I never mentioned taste.>>45650012Hell no, That was impractical at the time and probably still is.
>>45650036This is exactly as stupid as that.
>>45649282Thanks for running birdman.
>>45650012There's always one of those faggots. I wish you could ethnically cleanse opinion s.
>>45650046>This is exactly as stupid as that.No it isn't, The anon who wanted giant spider was talking Serathis big, I'm not.
>>45650063Then you should be more specific, because I've already gotten a hatred of any harpy that is above average size for it's tier ingrained into my psyche in the last five minutes.
>>45650081I'm talking about height 7-8ft tall and about as big as Andre the giant.
>>45649609>>45649645And goats and stuff, yeah. I agree that it is a very good tactic. Still, it kinda requires the prey to be relatively non-threatening, yet tough enough not to splatter or shatter too much. We'd want to return with our food to the safety of the to eat it, after all, and many bone slivers in the meat are possibly not much fun for a harpy to deal with.>>45649909>>45649927>>45649958Size queenery aside, when we do eventually someday evolve (which probably won't be anytime soon, and I am 100% okay with that), I hope we get wing talons or something else grasper-like. I think being able to pick stuff up without using our feet would be very handy.
>>45650134>I hope we get wing talons or something else grasper-like. I think being able to pick stuff up without using our feet would be very handy.Agreed. Anyways I gotta get so seeya.
>>45650111I'm a little worried that starting down the path of huge at tier two could result in extreme growth at tiers three or four.
>>45650134>>45650145More humanoid would be good.Will our twin evolve more birdlike?
>>45650165I think it'd be hilarious if it goes in the exact opposite way. We get more birb and she gets more human.
>>45650149Remember that tier 2 evos are still generic, just more powerful and possibly-blessed.When we get into specializations like HUEG BIRD, we'll probably get a choice like in the other RE quests. Remember, Grave was the overall hugest of the tier 3s for Lyra, and we had the option to go huger at tier 4, but we chose an evo that kept us at about the same size.
>>45650395In that case then I hope we go for LIGHTNING HARPY! For first evo at least.
>>45650450That'd require us getting a blessing from the (demi)god of lightning/thunder, and I'm not too sure how we'd get that unless we have untapped magics.
I think we'd get the blessing of the god of protected considering we protected eggy and our sis.
need more harpies
