CRAKCRAKBANG“HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HANAKO!” Akira wakes you up without any warning by breaking your door in with a fire axe. You find yourself sitting bolt upright with a box-cutter in your hand, staring down an axe-wielding maniac with burning red eyes.“… Yeah. This is exactly what I want to wake up to.”“Right?” Her blonde hair flutters through the air as she flops down next to you. “Lilly and I already planned your party!”Akira, the last time you ‘planned a party’ you wound up in a deathmatch with Yetis inside an ancient Babylonian sacrificial temple. You know better than to actually say that, however, and instead just yawn and stretch out. Akira watches with a smirk.“Oh, come on. You’re picking up bad habits from Lilly… You should be excited after your victory yesterday…” Right… you eliminated Emi and Rin with Akira’s help.Recalling it is… a complex feeling.Akira tilts her head as if to gauge your reaction, then sighs fondly. “You know… You looked so beautiful back then… covered in blood…”Then she cranes her head down and bites your neck. Not a playful or gentle bite either – she literally bites down hard enough to draw blood, which she laps up. Your breath catches. A bolt shoots down your spine. You snap harshly back into full wakefulness with a sensation akin to being fed on by a vampire.Yan [//////____] Dere Shove her off. Scream. Endure it.
>>47613680Hi Akira! Welcome back!Today's mission: let Hisao understand we are the one for him. Also by force if we need.I'd believe the first thing to do is > [X]Endure itLet's see if last session we switched to the Yan side!
>>47613728>picI'm laughing so hard. Are you doing this on purpose or out of blessed ignorance?
[X] Endure it.
>>47613680>[x] Endure it.
Aw yeah[x] Endure it
>>47613680[X] Endure itOh good, for a second there I almost thought you had swapped Hisao for SHiki
>>47613680>[X] Endure it.
>>47613779You forgot the text.
>>47613680>[X] Endure it.Akira's being nice enough to throw us a party. Might as well let her indulge in being Akira for a moment. We'll have to find a way to cover up the wound up for the rest of the day, though.
Steam Group - which is sorta screwing up lately, but is the lesser evil in sending out group alerts.http://steamcommunity.com/groups/yanderestraw#Archives. Self-explanitory,http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=katawa+yandereAct 14 begin! Maybe I should write these in Roman numerals?
>>47613848>Maybe I should write these in Roman numerals?It would certainly be more... regal?
>>47613680>[x] endure itthe girl earned it.
>>47613848You should start writing them in Alamblak!
>>47613680yay, Katawa Yandere time !!!Last time we started with the hivemind and we got a nice session, killing the limbless sluts.But I'm for regaining some Dere (to use it for another slaughter party, obviously), so I'm forced to choose something else, like> [X] Scream.
>>47613848>Maybe I should write these in Roman numerals?Sumerian numerals or nothing
You ball a fist but remain silent. Akira is Akira, you guess. Who are you to refuse her a snack or two? It hurts, but to a burn victim, pain like that is pretty trivial.After a minute, Akira jerks away with a jolt, her face uncharacteristically flushed. She looks in the mirror as if to confirm that yes, that really is your blood on her lips. She looks away and hops up. “A-anyhow… Lilly wanted to throw a morning tea-party for you, so head there once you’re awake.” Then she exits without another word.…Well… now you need a new door… or maybe you could bunk with someone else? Probably better to address that while everyone’s still here. Lilly’s already at capacity since Akira’s staying with her… which, of your female acquaintances, leaves Team Slumberparty.So before you head to Lilly’s for your birthday breakfast, you decide to ask…Yan [///////___] Dere Miki. Suzu.
>>47613949Thanks doc!>>47613760Is this a real question? Ignorance, obviously. Always ignorance. Here I claim I'm the king of ignorance!>>47613848> I should write these in Roman numerals?It would be nicer, but we started another way, so I found acceptable both ones
Fak, I missed last time.(x2?)Oh well, the place didn't burn down while I was gone.
>>47614016If we ask Suzu, she gets a good reason to spend more time with Miki - say, Hanako wanting some 'lone time for a night'. We can ship them from there!
Never understand how to follow this...But one day I will understand all this thing!
>>47614016>[X] Suzu.as much as I'd love to say Miki, bunking in her room would only upset Suzu.
>>47614016Can't we get both?We need more forbidden love here.I vote for> [X] SuzuI picked her for her comedy moments, I literally whorship them. But also Miki would be nice
>>47614016[x] JUST. FUCK. ALREADY!
>>47614035Last week we didn't had a session.Dunno about other weeks you could have missed, but the important thing is now you're here to help Hanako get the Hissssao>>47614095Not so hard to understand, bro.Every week (or so) we have a session. To recover the archives, Akira made a post earlier>>47613848so check them out.But not understanding time now... now vote if you already didn't!
>>47614016Poor Miki, no one wants her... no one but Suzu, obviously.So> [X] Miki
>>47614016Always trust >[X] Suzu
>>47614016We need to make one bunk with the other and take the vacated room for ourself.I know this quest doesn't take write-ins, but just this once, Akira pls.
Suzu is definitely a much better match for your personality between the two. You head over to her room and knock on the door.“…Comein?” You here her murmur after a moment.You ease the door open and suddenly freeze still as death.Suzu is sitting in her bed, half slouched against a mountain of pillows and staring listlessly at you. She looks dreadfully tired, as always, but that’s not what froze you.In her hand, she’s holding a steaming tea cup. A tea cup. A tea cup. A tEa Cup. A PorceLAIn TeA cUP.Steaming with the unholiest of infusions, the odd runic designs around the rim seem to devour all the light around them, channeling it into that blasphemous tea.“Uh… Hanako?” Suzu catches your attention by raising an eyebrow. You realize you just sort of walked into her room and froze.“Um… My room was damaged… Can I bunk with you for a while?”She sips her perniciously-warmed tea to wake up. “Damaged… ho- wait… is… that a bite-mark?” She raises an eyebrow.You make a metal note to cover that for later. “O-oh. Akira. Lilly’s sister.”“Akira… Room… Bite…” Suddenly her face lights up and she starts giggling like a drunkard. “Sure… y-you can stay… heeeeeerreee…” She loses herself again. Unsure of what she suddenly found so funny, you thank her and leave.Time is wasting and you certainly don’t want to be late to your own birthday tea, but should you maybe drop by Miki’s and let her know about the new roomie-setup? It couldn’t take ‘that’ long… right?Yan [///////___] Dere Stop by Miki’s. Go directly to your room and get changed.
>>47614376More Miki is always good, let's go talk to her>[X] Stop by Miki's.
>>47614376[X] Stop by Miki’s.Bring Miki with us!
Oy, let's score them dere points, seal this love affair and then get smashed during our party breakfast.]X[ Stop by Miki's
>>47614376>Lilly has the teapot>Suzu has a cupHoW mANy MOrE PIecES?!>[X] Stop by Miki’s.
>>47614376I think Suzu will try to take Miki. If not, she has no hope and her destiny will be to finish in the friendzone forever.Plus, we can't risk to stay here a lot of time as it happened on part 3 or 4 of this quest. So> [X] Go directly to your room and get changed.
>>47614376>[x] Stop by Miki’s.
>>47614376tHe TeA CUb So we were told earlier that we needed to complete the set right? How many piece have we collected atm and how many do we need?
>>47614376Why is there no kill her and take what's rightfully yours option!?[X] stop by Miki's
>>47614484I think we need a total of three pieces and we know where two are.
>>47614376Wait wait wait... SUZU HAS THE 2ND PIECE OF THE TEA SET???Only 1 to go?About the choice, unsure on what to do. I'd wanna avoid we lost too many time before the party, we still have to remember that the deaf bitch can be really close to the Hisao - we should try to stalk him as soon as we can. He can be also depressed for Emi's death.So > [X] Go directly to your room and get changed.Party, than Hisao
>>47614499> Why is there no kill her and > take what's rightfully yours option!?THISPlease.Aren't we playing a Yandere Quest?
>>47614376>[X] Go directly to your room and get changed.
>>47614554because 1) Suzu is our ally and 2) Akiratrip has already revealed we will need allies in order to actually USE the set. no killing the help.
>>47614436Pretty sure we're just missing the saucer now.
Do we have to assemble the tea set, or simply find the pieces. Does this count as found?
>>47614610Yeah, yeah, rules.How boring.I'd prefer to surrender to the holy teaset's madness.
You decide a brief stop by Miki’s is in order. You head over to her room and knock tw-WHOOSH. Suddenly a hand shoots out with blinding rapidity and seizes you, tugging you in with a powerful force. You don’t even have time to fill your lungs, let alone scream. The entire room is dark… and wreaks of blood.But you know you saw a pair of red eyes.That’s the last thing you remember before a stranglehold robs you of consciousness.………Cold.Heavy.Wait… Where…You regain consciousness in a dark room with a concrete floor, at the center of which is a chain is anchored to the floor, winding towards… you?Clank.Suddenly, you become aware of the metal collar around your neck. That was… Wait. That… Your mind blanks over with a fog as you realize you’re chained up.“Wakey, Wakey, Hanners.” Then a clear voice slices through that with a fresh wave of fear. Looking over, you see Akira casually leaned into the door frame, staring lazily at you with those crazed red eyes.“I didn’t want it to come to this… mostly. I just couldn’t hold back anymore.” She giggles. “I’d forgotten what it means to be possessive.” The pressure on your back turns into a chill as she walks over and stroke your hair in the manner of a child playing with a doll. “You’ve always been my favorite.”“A-Akira…” You lock up, not knowing which, if any words could reach her now. She just laughs.“Oh? Did you want a token of your hunt? Don’t worry. I brought Hisao along.” With a flourish, she tosses a large bag about the size of a melon to the floor in front of you. It smacks to the floor with a wet packing sound.Your mind whites out. Thinking is beyond you right now. Trembling, your hands reach to open the sack on the floor…………[BAD END]
>>47614722good game everyone.
>>47614722Well fuck... This was not expected...
>>47614722Akira became Yandere for us???OMG
I fucking told you guys we should've shoved her off.
>>47614722Well then....I have no idea how we could have seen this coming and/or prevented it.
>>47614722Well fuck. I say we reload at>>47614376[X] Go directly to your room and get changed.
>>47614722Akira. the FUCK. I thought we were cool.
>>47614722To be fair, we have allowed ourselves to get this close to an obviously threatening character. She's a loose cannon, and that's not going to set up a good end game for us.
>>47614785Nah the damage was done when we let akira bite our neck.
>>47614722Okay, so, lesson learned:We should *not* be letting Akira indulge in her weird Akira-isms toward us anymore. Just... let's just keep her at a respectful distance from now on.
>>47614785She'll be waiting for us!!
>>47614800>>47614811But... the teaset...
>>47613680R E L O A DE LOAD
AS THE WORLD TEETERS ON THE BRINK ON ANIHILATION, ONLY ONE TEAM HAS THE POWER TO STOP IT.“Wanna save the world?”“… Why?”AS AN ANCIENT EVIL RISES.“Ancient-Evil-kuuuuun~!!! You’re going to be late for class~!!!”THIS SUMMER. PREPARE TO BE LEFT BREATHLESS.“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAOMGFGOMFG THEY’RE SLOTHS AND IT’S THE DMV AND THEYRE SLOW AND SLOTHS ARE SLOW AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA”“Hey Suzu, can I slaughter everyone in the theatre?” Akria asks as the fat guy sitting next to her splashes his rancid theatre-popcorn everywhere.“After Star Wars.”“Fiiiine.”SNOOZE AND SHRIEK: THE MOVIE.You return polite applause as, once again, you find yourself with the kooky gatekeepers of life and death.
>>47614822shit... SHIT! SHIT SHIT SHIT!!!Okay guys, damage control time! We need that goddamn tea set! How do we get out of this, with the tea set intact!?
>>47614722I dunno, that looks like a good end to me
>>47614722This is equal to the Mind of Steel FSN end.It's a Bad End, but not really.Why should we continue to pursue that stupid Hisao that prefers Shizune to us? Better being Akira's pet.Said that... What a fucking coup de théâtre, mon ami
>>47614822True, buT thE TEA 5eT tRanSC3nDS d1meNSIons (Right?) so we now where to find it, another time will reveal itself.
>>47614780Yeah, sure.I was the only one to say Scream on the first choice, but you warned us. Livin' the dream
>>47614882I am an impatient man who is not willing to surrender our ultimate goal when it is right in our face. I say we still go for it, get back to the room, maybe something will happen to keep us safe.
>>47614722Wat.Is this like the false Dead End in the Fate route?
“Shame on you Hanako, for leading a girl on…” Suzu clicks her tongue and shakes her head. “You ‘were’ warned about that, on several occasions. That girls who swing that way can go yandere for you.”“And yet you led my poor other self into thinking she had a chance.” Akira makes a dramatic gesture. “Weeeeell, whatever, live and learn.”“By now you’ve kinda screwed up the chances for ‘everyone’ to be happy… At least, without that trick that Rin can do.”“But.” Akira says. “It’s not too late to save your allies if you’re careful about it.”“Emphasis on the careful part.” Suzu nods. “Love can be every bit as destructive as hate.”They strike a back-to-back pose. “So? Where would you like to jump to?” >>47613680 >>47614016 >>47614376
>>47614929This is madness.
Not pushing akira off and getting a bad ned is like an analogy for how habako wasn't assertive and got raped+a bad ned in her route
>>47614945>“It’s not too late to save your allies if you’re careful about it.”We're fucked.
>>47614945[X] >>47614376I will not surrender that tea set knowledge!

>>47614945Surely the unfortunate ending had nothing to do with our choice of room partner. Following the same route a second time will show Akira our determination. She'll be so impressed that she won't bother us a second time.[X] >>47614376
>>47614945>[X] >>47613680 (OP)Shove her off, but go to Suzu's after. Simple.>“By now you’ve kinda screwed up the chances for ‘everyone’ to be happy… At least, without that trick that Rin can do.”I TOLD Y'ALL we shoulda stayed Dere and not killed anyone, but nooooo.

You think back on your past-BOOM.And suddenly the world becomes lost in a torrent of madness and despair.You see a world in which humanity is enslaved by Eldritch gods.You see a wasteland in which the sun dies and incinerates the Earth in its death throws.You see a sequel to Star Wars in eight years where they kill off Han Solo.… Yeah, like any of that could ever happen.“HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HANAKO!” Akira tears you up from the horrific nightmare by breaking your door in with a fire axe. And lo, you find yourself sitting bolt upright with a box-cutter in your hand, staring down an axe-wielding maniac with burning red eyes.“… Yeah. This is exactly what I want to wake up to.”“Right?” Her blonde hair flutters through the air as she flops down next to you. “Lilly and I already planned your party!”Akira, the last time you ‘planned a party’ you wound up in a deathmatch with Yetis inside an ancient Babylonian sacrificial temple. You know better than to actually say that, however, and instead just yawn and stretch out. Akira watches with a smirk.“Oh, come on.

>>47615300We still need to find a roomie, we'll go back to Suzu right after this.
>>47615325It's not that simple! It's never that simple!
>>47615161>[X] Shove her off.No need to make a scene by screaming, but we can't let her go full Yandere for us again.
I just red again the best BAD END ever... was Akira hiding in Miki's room? Or was I the only one who understood this way?Not so important 'cause if she became yandere for us was only a matter of time she caught us, but it can be important on picking Miki instead of Suzu.
You jump as the jolt of pain rips through you. More in startlement than out of pain, you slam your elbow out and force the two of your away. Akira looks as surprised as you are – wide-eyed and slackjawed – not at all unlike her usual rabid self.“I-I… I…”It’s weird but she seems… different from her usual self…“IVEGOTTAGODOSOMETHING!!!” Akira suddenly bolts from the room with speed like a hound, leaving you staring in amazement at the empty space where your door used to be.…Well… now you need a new door… You force your thoughts back to normality as you patch up the bite mark with an inconspicuous bandage.Or… maybe you could bunk with someone else? Probably better to address that while everyone’s still here. Lilly’s already at capacity since Akira’s staying with her… which, of your female acquaintances, leaves Team Slumberparty.So before you head to Lilly’s for your birthday breakfast, you decide to ask…Yan [/////_____] Dere Miki. Suzu.
>>47615355^This. Suzu's doesnt lead to bad end, it leads to glorious tea

Suzu is definitely better suited for your personality. You rise up-“Hanako?” –When, suddenly, Lilly materializes in the door frame, still in her bed clothes. “Is something the matter?”“N-no… Why… would you think that? Ahaha…”“I heard you yelling that you hadtogodosomething.”“O-oh… that wasn’t me. That was Akira.”“Akira?!” Lilly looks stunned. “Why… did she say that?”You shrug. “I guess she hadtogodosomething?”“…Why does it smell like blood in here?”“Akira.”She nods, then takes you by the hand. “Wellllll… I think I have an inkling where she was going. Come on! Let’s have a tea party!”Having been caught by Lilly, you resolve to catch Miki or Suzu in class before the bell. For now, you settle in with your blind friend and to make conversation, you…Yan [/////_____] Dere Ask about Akira before she went insane. Ask about her thoughts on Hisao. Gossip about Miki and Suzu.
>>47615562FUCK>[X] Gossip about Miki and Suzu.
the teaset didn't mean anything but now some people will pretend it's a tragedy and great loss
>>47615562> [X] GossipLet's get them juicy deets.
>>47615562>[X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.We know nothing substantive about Miki or Suzu and it is unlikely they will be actors in the conflict with Shizune. Akira is a trap, and trying to learn about her will be a waste of time. We need to know the current situation with Hisao.
>>47615562I can't believe any other choices.>[X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.So we'll avoid to continue on Akira (better avoid for a while the matter), and we'll have the chance to talk Lilly about having a night tea party with Hisao
>>47615562>[X] Gossip about Miki and Suzu.Lilly is cockblocking this teaset...
>>47615562[x] Ask about Akira before she went insane
>>47615562I have never said this before and i will never say it again.Fuck you, Lilly.>[X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.
>>47615562LILLY YOU CUPBLOCKING BITCHfine. fine. FINE. >[X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.have a chance to make yourself useful.
>>47615562I'd always prefer to avoid following Katawa Shoujo's original story, but tea parties with Lilly and Hanako, or Lilly, Hanako and Hisao are one of the few things we can try to obtain also here.So> [X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.
>>47615562>[X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.Alright, let's put aside our frustration about the tea set piece and get back to Priority Number One. If Lilly has any insight into this guy we haven't thought of - insights that could perhaps prove useful - we need to know.
>>47615587... now you're starting to sound like you're mining for salt.
>>47615562It's all or nothing now, we NEED to get Hisao on our birthday. He's too close to Shizune, we continue to give additional moves to our opponents getting BAD ENDs... it will be a tragedy a birthday without him.> [X] Ask about her thoughts on Hisao.hoping this will lead to inviting him for the evening.>>47615608Tu quoque, Fluff?
>>47615562[X] Gossip about Miki and Suzu.
“How do you think Hisao will be after yesterday?”“… Does he prefer Rei or Asuka?”“Is that even a real question?”She giggles. “Well… in all seriousness, I think he might become a little cold for a while.”“C-cold? W-why?”She lifts an eyebrow as if she’d thought it was obvious. “Well… he was close to Emi and Rin… They obviously didn’t love him like you… but, well… You know how easily boys can be misled. From his perspective he just lost a major part of his life.”You pause, taking that in… It’ll work in your favor in the Shizune will have been set back too… But… You frown. These waters need to be navigated with the utmost caution. Hisao will need a support… but pressing too hard will likely make him lash out.Hm…Yan [/////_____] Dere C-Could you be with him at lunch, Lilly? I need to talk to Suzu. I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?

>>47615815>[X] I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?damn it. would love to get hold of Suzu's cup and get the teacup, but I fear we are at risk of giving Shizune too much room if we do.
>>47615815Let's go for Hisao.It can be risky, but I smell another failure if we let Lilly being with him. And getting a bad end by a blonde, our natural allies in this session, it's enough for me.> [X] I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?
>>47615866Lilly Should be able to handle Shizune by herself, right?
>>47615815AKIRA, YOU CLEVER SON OF A BITCHI am impressed and upset in near equal measure. Hrm. Alright, look:>[X] C-Could you be with him at lunch, Lilly? I need to talk to Suzu.As much as I want to get Hisao points, we'll at least be able to make sure Shizune has a harder time getting any of her own. It's a minor setback in the grandscheme of things, and we'll have plenty of chances (hopefully) to get more. Chances to get this tea set, however, are rare. We still need to capitalize on this while we can.
>>47615850>>47615859>Implying Lilly doesn't have her own agenda
>>47615815I want to get the Teacup, but having Lilly be his shoulder to cry on could easily backfire on us>[X] I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?

>>47615815>[x] C-Could you be with him at lunch, Lilly? I need to talk to Suzu.
>>47615815I like this kind of choices, when we (should) discuss about the good and bad outcomes of our picks.Being so low in Dere will make me prefer to let do Lilly the work, but we were on the verge of Hisao declaring to Shizune some threads ago and I think this kind of danger is still present. So> [X] I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?But it was a close one
Hopefully inviting him to our party will cheer him up.Just be careful, everyone; he could slip onto the Lilly path easily.
>>47615815[X] C-Could you be with him at lunch, Lilly? I need to talk to SuzuI'd rather sink this whole ship if it meant getting that damn tea setinb4 we find suzu as she closes the dishwasher
>>47615815>[X] I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?I don't trust Lilly around Hisao now, not after what happened. Plus we don't have the sweet sweet Dere points to make sure she'll actually be useful to us.
HISAO DOESN'T NEED US WHITEKNIGHTING HIMGO SUZU
>>47615966>putting china in the dishwasher
>>47615815I can feel it guys, some of you are still afraid for Akira's BAD END. And you have good reasons for it, I can understand.But we should forget the past, we need to be there for our Hisao now. We shouldn't risk having someone else on his side, now that he needs someone.> [X] I want to be with him at lunch… do you think you could keep Shizune busy?Let's take our place in the world
>>47616006She's too sleepy to do it herself!
>>47615815>[X] C-Could you be with him at lunch, Lilly? I need to talk to Suzu.>>47616026Remember Lily will be there to counteract Shizune.
>>47615966> I'd rather sink this whole ship > implying we didn't already did it by pursuing that> fucking, useless teaset for some threads> when our Hisao points are probably the lowest in every KY
>>47616052>implying Lilly doesn't need countering.
>>47616053How does it feel to that guy who plays through all of Mario without getting a single Star Coin unless by chance?Work for it!
You flush. “I… want to be with him.” It’s simple, but it says it. You resolve in no weaker. Actually, if anything, it’s stronger. You look up into Lilly’s eyes with the most determined face you can muster… then you feel somewhat embarrassed when you remember how pointless that actually is. “Um… I… want to be with him at lunch… Do you think you could keep Shizune busy?”She rocks her head. “I… can try… but she’ll be on guard now.” She giggles. “My, my, Hanako. All the times you’re having me do this, I’d say I’m earning quite a large favor…”You sigh. It’s so true. Once you’re free and clear of this mess-“GUESS WHOOO~!!!” Akira burst through Lilly’s door wearing a Santa costume. “Time for presents!”Lilly laughs as her sister enters, once again her usual self.“You’re wearing the wrong costume for a birthday…”“I know, but who am I supposed to strangle and switch outfits with for a birthday party?” She flops down next to you and ruffles your hair. “Happy birthday, Hanners!”Akira’s and Lilly’s presents are, respectively, a large plush Teddy Bear and an elegant long knife – one of Akira’s personal collection. She giggles like a schoolgirl as you stare transfixed into the blade.“Figured you needed an upgrade from that old boxcutter, Hanners.” You can’t help but agree… You need… a lot of upgrades.“My, my. I know it’s supposed to be at the birthday ‘dinner’ that you gift presents, but we’re going out tonight and… I don’t know how many clubs will let you in strapped with knives.”“’I’ know a few.” Akira tuts.Somehow you’re not surprised. At a loss for words, you simply hop up and embrace the two Satou sisters.
>>47616199We needed this heartwarming moment.Thanks a lot for it, Akira.Now let's go take the Hisao.
>>47616199> but we’re going out tonight No evening tea party with Lilly?WHYEVENLIVE
>>47616199A time later, you head off into the day in high spirits. The plan is simple enough. Lilly distracts once before class to get shizune's attention, you leave with Hisao at Lunch and she'll intercept again on that pretext.“Hey, Hanako?”You whirl around to find the ever-tired-looking Suzu behind you.“W-What’s up?”“I… wanted to ask.” She looks off to the side, a little flushed. “You… killed Emi and Rin yesterday… didn’t you?" Her eyes meet yours. "Why?”Yan [/////_____] Dere For love. They had it coming. I just wanted to.
>>47616264[X] For love
>>47616264[X] They had it coming
>>47616264>[X] For love.I have a bad feeling about this.
>>47616264[x] For love.she's a little lovestruck she;ll get itand besides we need more dere
>>47616199See? Akira gave us the knife, we didn't need to steal it.But how did Lilly know Akira was dressed as Santa?>>47616264This is hard the answer since they attacked us. I wish we could explain that Shizune sicked them onto Akira and us, but there's no option to do that.Choose the love option.Suzu would understand.>[X] For love.
>>47616264>[x] For love.
>>47616264> For love.This is too wonderful to ignore.
>>47616264There's only a thing Suzu can understand, forbidden love.Let's forget the forbidden part, and let's go with> [X] For love.
>[X] Love. Gotta go dere.
>>47616264>[X] For love.Suzu and Miki helped us fight them once, so I don't think she will have a problem with it.
>>47616264I hope Suzu won't be our death flag today, 'cause the first time she was.I see no 100% satisfying choices, we should have explained how things really went.Let's say I'll choose the > [X] For love.It shouldn't scare Suzu, she knew she can't be our target 'cause she's Yandere for Miki.I fear she can mess up things (maybe trust us too much, and killing Miki for love leaving us two allies) but honestly the other choices seemed a lot worse.
>>47616264>[X] They had it coming.GuysGUYSTHINK ABOUT THISIf we tell the lovesick Suzu "Yeah, it's totally fine to kill people if it's for love," what'dya think is gonna happen? How long will it be before Suzu murders somebody, possibly even us or one of our allies, to get to Miki? I got a gut feeling that's a bad answer.
>>47616419>implying she wont murder Miki
>>47616419But why would killing us get her closer to Miki?
>>47616419Last time Suzu decided it was OK to kill people she and Miki took on Emi and Rin for us. we have so far done nothing to obstruct her path to Miki.
>>47616419Yeah, I thought about it and I also said it two messages before yours.But did we really had a better choice? I don't think so.It's your destiny to be the last sane man in the world and seeing longer than any other man, sorry mate
>>47616395Suzu's problem is that she's not yandere enough for Miki. She likes her and wants her but doesn't have what it takes to make it happen, to push the fate.If she were true yandere, we wouldn't be having this conversation. She would be busy having Miki chained in a basement and rubbing herself all over her.And it changes nothing that she would fall asleep like three times just dragging her there. Mimi might not get what's all that about but is considerate enough to wait for her to wake up for a mid-kidnapping nap.
>>47616431That wouldn't exactly be a good outcome either. >>47616438We hang out with Miki semi-often. What happens if Suzu decides we're on obstacle in her path that's eating up the Miki time she wants for herself?>>47616447Look, I'm not saying it couldn't lead to a good outcome, I'm just thinkin' in terms of worst case scenarios here. It's risky, y'know? And we've fumbled so many times in this route that we can't afford many more setbacks and complications. I'm just afraid it's gonna bite us in the ass is all. Then again, I suppose literally any choice could do that at this point.
As you process your question, suddenly Hisao’s face pops into your mind and a blissful feeling sweeps through you. A dreamy expression breaks out on your face and you put your hands to your cheeks.“For love…”You’ll protect Hisao.“Love… ” Suzu echoes, then closes her eyes and nods. When she opens them again, she’s wearing what must be the first true smile she’s ever directed at you personally. “Good answer, Hanako.”You giggle. Obviously Suzu would understand a motive like that. She has to stop for a nap before you actually arrive at class, but on the positive side, true to her word, you find Lilly and Shizune bickering through their pink-haired proxy as you enter class. It’s more than enough time for you to slip a written note to Hisao once everyone’s distracted…CRASH.Mutou arrives, missing an arm and a leg. “Rei and Asuka sent us to hell… but we’re going even further.”You shrug. Now where should you invite Hisao…Yan [/////_____] Dere Have Akira take you both someplace. Head to the Shanghai. Go into town, just the two of you.
>>47616529>[x] Go into town, just the two of you.we don't know for how long Shizune will remain distracted and this way she'd have a tougher time tracking us
>>47616529[X] Go into town, just the two of you.
>>47616499> I'm just thinkin' in terms of worst case scenarios here> I'm just afraid it's gonna bite us in the ass is allIt can't be denied we made a lot of mistakes. Huge mistakes.We should think before voting, sometimes.But I sadly have to agree with your spoiler, I lost the count on how many times we wanted to do something (i.e. in last choice, going to Hisao) and someone crossed our path, maybe lasting for a session.At this rate we should try focus on a strategy, but if we start overthinking on what can go wrong... we won't be able to do nothing productive.
>>47616529Hm. Looks like my concern for the For Love answer may have been unfounded. Good, because I was in the minority anyway. >[X] Go into town, just the two of you.I can't remember the last time we had alone time our man, and we've been to the Shanghai multiple times. We need someplace new to visit.
>>47616529>first true smile[x] Go into town, just the two of you.
>>47616529>[X] Have Akira take you both someplace.What could go wrong.
>>47616529>[X] Go into town, just the two of you.How could going into town possibly go wrong...
>>47616529I'm really tempted to vote for the Shangai, and I know we'll have a mass voting for the town 'cause we'll fear having no more chances with Hisao.So I'll follow the tide and I say> [X] Go into town, just the two of you.
>>47616529>[X] Go into town, just the two of you.
>>47616529We need Hisao time badly. And we needed a lot of times, almost never succeeding in having it for anyone interference.I loudly say my pic related, so> [X] Go into town, just the two of you.This time is THE time
If you guys get Hanako raped I won't forgive you
>>47616638Forgot pic obviously, sorry guys
>>47616651We could be the ones to lock up Hisao instead, just like Akira did to us before. Then we could have ample Hisao time.
>>47616651We just got a bitchin' new knife. What makes you think any troublemakers in the city aren't going to get stabbed immediately? Sure, under normal circumstances just having a weapon doesn't guarantee safety, but I don't think Akira-Trip would give us this without ensuring it makes a difference.
>>47616730Why would it be in the city
You settle for inviting Hisao to the ambiguous ‘town’ and flick the note to him… It’s actually kind of weird to be on the shooting-end of classroom paper-projectiles. In your childhood everybody would just shoot spitballs ‘at’ you. After reading, he shoots you a thumbs up.Success.Shizune storms through the door in a huff just as Mutou begins to sing “STAAAAANDIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING ON THE EDGE~”.At that moment in time you really envy her for being deaf.Class is about unchanged – save for the fact that half the class is now absent and the other half are wearing necklaces of their ears. Shizune stands up like a bolt once the bell rings. Whatever Lilly said to her must have really pissed her off.Hisao shuffles over to you. “Let’s go.”You head to the bus station. Having plotted this all out, you’ll probably miss a little of fourth period, but that’s an acceptable sacrifice.Hisao is silent as they drive in, staring out the window.What should you talk to him about…Yan [//________] Dere Ask him how he’s feeling. Swap hospital horror-stories. Ask how it's possible that he didn't know how to stretch when he ran with Emi if he used to be part of a soccer team. Stay silent.
>>47616691When we deal with Shizune, we have to remember that TalkBox is a separate person and so need to deal with her as well.
>>47616788[x] Ask him how he’s feeling.why'd we lose dere
>>47616788>[x] Swap hospital horror-stories.call it a hunch.
>>47616788[X] Stay silent.Let's wait until we get somewhere to talk.How did our yan meter increase so much just by going into town?
>>47616788>[X] Swap hospital horror-stories.More stories about death might cheer him up.
>>47616788The first one seems a little too direct to me.The fourth one... I'd say it will be a 50\50, he could appreciate our silence or he can be pissed off we invited him and we don't say anything.I won't even consider the 2nd and the 3rd.So let's go with the risky one, > [X] Stay silent.
>>47616788> [X] swap hospital horror storiesBrighten his mood with some laughs
>>47616788>>Ask how it's possible that he didn't know how to stretch when he ran with Emi if he used to be part of a soccer team.Heh. Probably not the best way to get Hisao points.>>[x] Ask him how he’s feeling
>>47616788>[X] Swap hospital horror-stories.Sympathy can be gained mutually between us, and it gives Hisao a chance to vent, which he probably needs.
>>47616788Holy shit, look at that Yan.>[X] Swap hospital horror-stories.
>>47616788We had to fight hardly to have this chance. We had to rely too much on our best friend Lilly, we had to let Hisao being scolded by being caught by the guard, we should take our prize now.Seeing him so silent isn't a good sign, but let's pick > [X] Ask him how he’s feeling.
>>47616788[x] Ask him how he’s feeling.
>>47616834>>47616860>>47616865>>47616876>>47616879Guys.... really???I can't understand your mindset, sorry.>>47616788I won't bet on any choice we have.I suppose staying silent can be the wisest choice, he'd appreciate us better this way than showing him we'll pity him.But we also fought so hard for him, spending our time staying silent can be not as worth as we thought.My choice is> [X] Stay silent.Hoping Hisao will understand our intentions.
>>47616788Tortured "Punished" Mutou when?[x] Swap hospital horror-stories.
>>47617022>Tortured "Punished" Mutou when?AKA Best Mutou Hopefully he doesn't die in this route.
>>47617011>I can't understand your mindset, sorry.We are so close to the Yan side anyway, why not make this bus ride more interesting?
>>47617011>>47617062We have a high value target right now and a chance to exploit it. We need to play to our strengths and that's Yan as it is.
>>47617011I say we snap. I like dere and all, but we haven't been doing well with it.
You sigh, trying to remember as many specifics as you can. “Back when I was in the hospital, still in the disinfectant chamber, there was this other boy who was brought in, a redhead. He wasn’t burned anywhere nearly as bad as I was but there was something wrong with his head. He’d go on rants about wanting to be a ‘hero of justice’ and for the first time since I got thrown in there I found myself thinking ‘God I’m glad I’m not that guy’.”Hisao takes in your story with a placid face, then smirks wryly at the end. “For all that’s happened to both of us, at least we’re still sane, right?”“Yep!” You shoot him a smile bright enough to surprise even you.“Exactly!” The Porcelain Doll who lives inside your head also voices agreement. You giggle.He sighs. “I always thought that getting use to death would make me less afraid… but it’s the opposite… You get more afraid of it. Literally ‘everyone’ you meet, you wonder how shaken you’d be if they died…”Suddenly, Hisao lashes around and hugs you.It’s not a tight hug and you’re too stunned to even move a finger. “Hanako… tell me… Please… tell me you’re not going anywhere.”Yan [//________] Dere Never. Not without you. Stay silent.
>>47617011>I can't understand your mindset, sorry.Look at it this way: this version of Hisao in this KY route is cynical as *hell*. He constantly bemoans his own questionable writing, so if we give him a chance to rant about it, he might feel better and open up a bit.Wait, now that I think about it, he does make meta jokes about his vague backstory all the time. Will this... wait, will this mean that if we ask him to share stories, he'll lament that doesn't have any and get moody? ...Shit, this may have been the wrong idea. Ah, well, too late now.
>>47617062I can understand playing chaotic evil or chaotic neutral.I can't understand playing something apparently chaotic stupid (maybe letting Hisao laugh will make us gaining his heart, who knows).Well, it seems you have the majority of votes... let's see what happens
>>47617103[x] Not without you
>>47617103A-ha! Swapping stories WAS the right call!>[X] Never.Ain't nothin' getting in our way.
>>47617103>[X] Not without you.KEEP THE YAN TRAIN GOING!
>>47617103>[x] Never.as funny as le murder suicide would be, no thanks
>>47617103We are near the full Yan.I'd embrace it, and pick> [X] Not without you.instead the one I'd have picked with a more balanced attitude meter
>>47617103Yes Hisao, we're here for you.And we'll ever be.It took you so long to understand it, but now you received the enlightment.> [X] Never.
>>47617103>[x] Not without you.
>>47617103>[X] Not without you.
>>47617111> [X] Not without you
>>47617103I suppose the first 2 choices can have the same impact on Hisao.But the Not without you could move us around the Full Yan. And his question needs a firm answer, no conditions.So > [X] Never.
>>47617103>>Not without you.
>>47617103Seeing this sissy Hisao I continue to think that our previous Bad End was the real True End.Whatever, > [X] Stay silent.No need to ruin that moment with words everyone will expect.
>>47617103> [x] you
A dreamy smile creeps over your face as you rub his back as if trying to feel his life itself. “Not without you, Hisao…”The rest of your trip is spent in relative merriment, more having the attitude of a carnival than any kind of mourning. You hit up a café, window shop for knives, and spend most of your time at the arcade, where you manage to leave a good impression.“You’re really good at this.” He pats your head as you conclude a two-player game. “Do you do this with Akira?”“The ball games, yeah, but not the shooters. Akira has a bad habit of pulling New-York-reloads and stabbing the screen with real weapons.”He laughs. You’ve really grown to like that sound.In no time at all your brief lunch period is past and you’re heading back to Yamaku. You and Hisao split up as he heads to class and you head to the tea room to thank Lilly. You shoot him a wink as you split up, amazed with yourself at how easy that is now… It used to be that you could barely stammer a sentence. Now the light seems brighter. Sounds seem richer. You arrive at the tea room grinning like a loon. “Thank you soooo much.” You giggle as you elbow through the half-open door. “I had such a good day, Lil… ly.. ?”Your voice catches. Everything grinds to a halt.There, amidst a few broken shards of pottery, Lilly is lying completely still on the floor.[Part 14 Cliffhanger]
>>47617477SHIZUNE MUST DIEHERE I SWEAR, I WILL KNOW NO PEACE 'TIL THIS WON'T HAPPEN
at least we won't get cucked by her toplel
>>47617477'Twas basest poison!StuCo did this!
>>47617477>Lilly is lying completely still on the floor.
>>47617477This is what we get for changing gears and going Yan. THIS IS WHAT WE GETARE YOU ALL HAPPY NOW?
>>47617518At least Akira is in front of us.Not behind us, because having her behind us currently might end badly.>>47617528More we went after Hisao, leaving Lily with angry Shizune, rather than the other option.
>>47617477First of all, thanks really a lot Akira for tonight session. A great one.Nice cliffhanger too. Will Lilly survive? Will be Shitzune the guilty one, or maybe someone else (Suzu for our answer before?)Greetings again, see ya Akira!
>>47617477Good night Akira, yet again another great session.
>>47617477Legitimately punched my screen.Fuck you, Akira.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCOxVaQQrbk

>>47617477>amidst a few broken shards of potteryPlease for the love of god let that not be the teapot
>>47617590Fuck you, Akira.
>>47617603Symbolism at its finest as the dreams of the tea set team gets shattered.
>>47617590You've once again impressed me with your ability to balance the 'give and take' of whatever the thread's participants wants. One of the things I like about this quest is that I never feel like we're safe, or that we couldn't lose something important at any given time. I never really know what to expect, and that's excellent. Good thread as always. Until next time!
we owed her like 2 favorsnow we don't
Lilly isn't dead, just collapsed.
>>47617477SONOFABITCHSHIZUNE'S EATING SHIT NEXT TIME.
>>47617760BUT FOR HOW LONG!?COLLAPSED BECOMES DEAD AFTER 10-20 MINUTES WITHOUT SUPERVISION!
>>47617743IT DOESN'T MATTER!
>>47617873>>47617584Upside is, once we pin the blame for this on her, Hisao will assume Rin and Emi were caused by her as well.... We need to make sure Shizune isn't pinning the blame on us.
>>47617873There will be an opportunity to examine the situation more clearly I'm sure. For all we know, Lilly is just playing possum for any potential assailant.
Don't fuck with student council
>>47617913If Lily is dead, which might not be the case.Medical Aid/Akira should be our next move.
>>47614945>“By now you’ve kinda screwed up the chances for ‘everyone’ to be happy… At least, without that trick that Rin can do.”>“But.” Akira says. “It’s not too late to save your allies if you’re careful about it.”WE WERE NOT CAREFUL
