You tend to suffer occasional lapses in memory, emotion and judgement from shifting hormonal imbalances due to a congenital anomaly. You have been sent to the feral planet known as Cymbio IV for a simple task: fetching water, but you are sidetracked by an adventure of your own making.>Twitter: @guardtemp>Discord: https://discord.gg/014ec8f38Ex8Ygzch>Notice: You can roll 1d6 to influence your current situation akin to Roll to Dodge. Use when necessary.>Recap: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Whirlpool%20QuestYou arrived at Resorcinol, feigning a limp to avoid suspicion. You reach your assigned objective, the Medical District, and confront Aspirin, the district's head. Eventually a mutual truce was agreed and you make your way down to the Red Light District, as you were informed that Nicotine was looking for you. Meanwhile, Mu Cephei and Canopus unsuccessfully tried to coax her into revealing information, leaving them to wait for you to arrive. All the district head wanted was to converse with you, apparently. But revelations get heavy as she claimed that she is your sister according to a document her hand.>Last Thread: >>279739(1/4)

Well, this paper right here says so, along with other information."You're confused, curious yet shocked. You ask why that paper should know so much about me.>"'Cuz this sheet's holding your -real- story...and mine."You tell her to get to the point.>"You ever see that we have the same-enough hairstyle? What I'm sayin' is that you're my sister."Canopus bursts out laughing, what's her problem? You assume she read a funny passage in that book of hers but apparently she finds this whole revelation incredibly trite and silly. Sure, you are somewhat skeptical about the district head's claim but that laughter is incredibly rude. Mu Cephei smacks the bibliophile while the rest of you glares at her. She quiets down, hiding half her face behind her book.>"Thanks for piping down that stuck-up ditz over there. Anyway, I know that's a lot to take in, you might not even believe me, but you're welcome to jaunt over to my side so I can show you more. I just want to make up for some lost family time, nuthin' wrong with that."(2/4)
>>297924>Look over the files she hasYou accept Nicotine's offer and take off your hat. The two of you squat on the floor and peer into the folder containing visibly-old files. From what you can gather from the first glance, there seems to be a list of profiles and one of which might be yours. Your companions couldn't help but huddle over your shoulders, but she doesn't mind the spectators.>"The past, how much do you remember? I bet your earliest memories are shot, huh? That's cool, I think I'm the only one here who knows enough. Gather 'round, Nico...tine's got a story to share."Before she continues, you ask if she has a real name. She says that she would rather let the papers answer for her.>"Okay, so back in the day, 'designer babies' were the latest trend with the advent of gene modding. It was also pretty heated because of ethics but for the most part the average Joes were pretty chill with it. Before you ask, that's a yes but our situation is a whole lot more stickier than that. From what I know, there was this -really- grody company who planned to cater to the weird ones. After a long time at R&D, they managed to 'birth' a handful of initial prototypes. Obviously, we're part of that handful. Why else do we have these 'gear sticks'? Supposedly we can do a lot of weird metabolic shit just because, but I'll save that for the bedroom. Anyway, all of the prototypes were 'born' as young girls already because no one wanted to deal with weird babies. We each had individual problems but the eggheads thought they were part of the charm. The company didn't get that far though, someone might've leaked their little project and the whole project was shut down. The prototypes had their memories wiped and scattered all over...except for me. I just ran away, nothing else."Nicotine hands you the folder and lets you browse the individual profiles yourself.>"I only gathered five peeps though, sorry about that. There should be more but these were all I can get."(3/4)

You hand the folder back to Nicotine and sit on the floor, contemplating. You're at least thankful for whoever picked you up rather than let you end up in the squatters of South America or something.>"If you need a drink then just say the word, this one's on the house."(4/4)Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse
>>300420Question Nicotine about the last test subject
>>300420Ask Nicotine if she has any on the information about you or the other test subjects.
>>300440>"I ain't got squat about her, maybe she's one of the weird ones."Mu Cephei offers her own opinion based on what she can infer.>"It seems the staff was trying to hide this one. Maybe she came out very wrong and had to be put down. Alternatively, she openly defied expectations and became a renegade. Whoever she was, she clearly wasn't a keeper.">>300472>"Can't help you with the others, either. I scavenged for these papers so I don't know where the others are. At least they're still on Earth, it's not like they got lost in space, right? At least you're here and that's enough for me."
Ask if she knows anywhere you can find more information.
>>300415>>300420>visual continuity error the size of MarsIt's one in the afternoon, a good time to take a break. Just chalk it up to hormones.
>>300580>>300611>"If you mean about our sisters then it's a lost cause, no one else here but me—and Aspirin—know about them. Resorcinol doesn't really keep track of events on earth, even though the incident itself is clearly-remembered. Unless you're looking for something else then maybe I can help."
>>300632No need to worry about your backstory just yet. For now, keep your focus on the mission by asking if Nicotine is willing to remain neutral.
>>300737You ask Nicotine if she's okay with leaving you be, mentioning that you're trying to help out your friends. You explain the plight of Errai's people. The 'tribals' that the establishment normally opposes are actually the descendants from exiled scientists from long ago. Your mission is to simply set things right or at least make their lives more comfortable. Your companions vouch for you, backing up your claim.>"Sure, I guess I can let you go scot-free. It's my thanks for actually listening to me. I'd actually help you out but I can't actively go against my workplace. Say, if you're interested in a meal, I'd be happy to give it for free."
>>300902Promise Nicotine when this is all over, you will take all of your friends here and have a party with real food instead of mush. For now, ask Nicotine which of the district heads would be the easiest to convince to become neutral.
>>300908Nicotine asks you to clarify when you mentioned 'mush'. You elaborate what the exiles eat there and add in further information about their lifestyles. She seems horrified at their situation.>"Yikes, that's horrible! I can't imagine myself living like that. I'd totally give them some freebies...if I'm allowed to."You agree with her, then ask about the other district heads and mention that you already met Aspirin. She pauses for a bit to recall tidbits before answering.>"Your best bet would be Caffeine from the Residential District. She's some kind of 'superwaitress' who's a total do-gooder. There's also Halon, but he almost never shows up unless there's a fire."
>>300985Shouldn't a waitress be the commercial head? That seems more aptmight as well ask what she knows about management district and its head.
>>300985Ask Nic for some seduction tips, then head to the residential district.
>>301114Who knows how that works, maybe she handles the hotel room service. Besides, according to Aspirin, it's Saccharin who's the head of the Consumer District and you have no idea who she is.You ask Nicotine about the Management District. She says that the district head only interacts with the others through his lackeys, and never leaves the place like some kind of shut-in.>>301164She catches on to what you have in mind.>"Ah, that I -can- help you with. If anyone asks, I can just chalk it up to being frisky. Maybe I can hitch along? I've always wanted to see a blush on Caff's face."
>>301183Oh boy, here we go.Ask Nicotine to come along for a little "adventure", then.
>>301206Nicotine accepts your request with a naughty grin on her face. Errai approaches you, apologizing for the interruption, and asks for something to eat. She woke up late and missed breakfast as a result. Mu Cephei offers her some kind of mushy granola bar made out of the same substance as their usual food paste. Nicotine offers a free meal at the foodstuffs corner of the district.>Let her have the ration bar, we need to get going>Accept Nicotine's offer, we still have time to killLast update for the night, see ya'll in 12 hours...or 16+ if I get dragged into the usual sunday outing.
>>301239Go with Nicotine to see how different the living conditions are
>>301239>Let her have the ration bar, we need to get going
>>301239Accept nicotine's offer
>>301239If we really do have time to kill, then I'm fine with eating real food. Otherwise, let's just have her eat the ration.
>>301293>>301625>>301845It's a tough deliberation but you decide to let Errai have the ration bar. You promise that she'll get to eat later. Besides, she doesn't seem to mind since variations on "alien guacamole" is probably the only thing she has ever eaten.You move on towards the Residential District with Nicotine leading the way. The group passes through the Consumer District where you encounter Betelgeuse and Sirius. They say that they can't find the district head at all.I had to hustle this update ASAP as I'm gonna be gone for "a few" (several) hours, per the predicted sunday outing.
>>303764I thought accepting offer won
>>303775I interpreted the last option as "either".AAand there's the ride. Welp, see you later, captivators.
>>303764Ask Nicotine if there is a sort of office for the district heads or if Saccharin travels anywhere.
>>303785Even if it was either,>Three straight votes for nicotine>Two straight votes for barIf we went with it meaning one for each, the ratio is unchanged, nicotine winsIf we go for giving it to bar, votes simply tieIf we give it to nicotine, nicotine still wins obviously
>>303801Ah, I see what you mean. I counted >>301293 as "Go to the residential" vote as I try to take in all the input possible. Sorry.>>303792>"That depends on the district and their heads' whims. Even though Aspirin's the head doc, he's got a private office for alone time. Meanwhile I'm more of a supervisor who's gotta keep watch on things. Saccharin? She just goofs off everywhere as she pleases. Unlike the others, she likes to join her customers in enjoying the merchandise. She still performs the basic duties of a district head."Nicotine stops walking for a moment, remembering somethng.>"I hope nothing's going crazy in my pad."Meanwhile back at the Red Light District, someone got lucky at the slots.>"AHAHAHAHAHA I'M FREE TIME TO GET LAID AND BLOW THIS JOINT"
>>304736Your best bet of finding her is to pretend to be shopping around for stuff until she is automatically drawn to you to give you some help, just like a regular store employee.
>>304758>"That wild ankle-biter usually looks like she's on a sugar rush."You take note of Nicotine's off-hand remark, it might be relevant.You attempt to feign some window shopping but there's so many empty stores. Maybe if you start your search at the large grocery->"Whatcha do—ing?"The group looks around and finds that a little girl is the source of the inquiry. Canopus impulsively asks her if she's the district head.>"Pray tell, art thou the head of the Consumer District?">"Yup! That's totally me! Hi Nicotine!"Well that is certainly convenient. Nicotine waves back while Betelgeuse can't believe her eyes at first.>"Wait, WHAT!? This juvenile adolescent, whom I have sighted earlier, is the district head ALL THIS TIME!?"She facepalms in shocked frustration. Who could have ever expected that the little girl is the head of the Consumer District all along?I certainly did, title pic of the previous thread is a dead giveaway.
>>304986No need to beat around the bush, go ahead and request for Saccharin's neutrality.
>>305032Errai explains to Betelgeuse how the two of you have been doing things. The latter agrees with this diplomatic method and wishes that we have considered it at the planning stage. Meanwhile you ponder carefully how you're going to word your request to Saccharin......then Mu Cephei up and asks if the little girl would like to join on an adventure.>"Okay! I have been very bored for a while."Well that was easy, but Nicotine is skeptical.>"I dunno, Wis. She's a mischievous little scamp, but we might as well deal with it"
>>305118Great! Now head to the res. district.
>>305171As the eight of you make your way through the Consumer District, Saccharin points out the various shops that had signs of activity. There's one for video games, clothes, household supplies and furniture. There's also a scattered handful of active restaurants, among which is a coffee shop that—unsurprisingly—has a steady stream of patrons.Eventually you reach the Residential District after passing through a somewhat-broad "transition area" bordering the two districts. Nicotine points out that the entire district is essentially one colossal hotel, with each "room" being its own household. Predictably, this is the one with the most civilian population, according to her.At the spacious lobby, you see an entrance to some kind of huge dining area and ask Nicotine for a quick tour. She says that's there are plenty of residents who aren't interested in eating. Sirius asks if there's a form of indoor transportation, judging from how large Resorcinol is. She says that Propane's working on it. Coincidentally, all that traveling has made your friends hungry and it's close to noon anyway.>Take a break and have lunch here>Keep going, save the lunch for later>Try to lure the district head here (Write in)Last update for the night, see ya'll in 14 hours...or more depending on morning traffic.
>>305251Sure, let's go eat lunch. Also we should probably consider going to see Propane first since we have the rest of our party there.
>>305251Lure the district head in
>>305251Eat lunchShe is a waitress
>>305251Order some lunch, but try to get the largest lunch possible to attract attention.
>>305251>She says that's there are plenty of residents who aren't interested in eating [b]OUTSIDE[/b].I'M SORRY.mp3>>305422Duly noted, gotta assemble the team when you have the time if you're going to tackle the management district.>>305466>>305484>>305651You requisition a table for eight and the waiter assigns you a large, circular table for the meal. A waitress attends to you. She looks somewhat shy and clumsy, probably isn't the district head. Recalling that only Mu Cephei has experience with actual food, you order a vegetable course for the rest—specifically soup and salads. Nicotine orders tuna pie for herself while Saccharin orders something sweet and/or sugary, you couldn't really hear her well. She runs off to deliver the orders to the chef, leaving you some free time. Is there anything you want to discuss while waiting?
>>308807Ask Saccharin what it is like to be a district head.
>>308807See if nicotine can upgrade our DICE sometime.
>>308826Saccharin's cheerful demeanor drops and the pitch of her voices drops to that of an adult woman.>"It's not easy, at least in the beginning. It was so much work setting everything up and having to make sure it all runs smoothly is soooo tiresome and menial. Plus it gets boring and lonely..."After a few more moments she stops grumbling and returns back to her normal self, which is very unsettling now..>"But now things are looking very spiffy for me now! There are people wandering my domain -and- everything is in place which gives me more playtime! Plus, I get to do something different for once! Yay for adventure!">>308840You show Nicotine your SIX-SIDED DICE and ask if she can improve it.>"I have a bunch of other dice but...uh...I don't have 'em with me. They're in my personal drawer; Sorry, Wis. I do have a deck of cards, some poker chips and a spinner though."I haven't done the MSPA ALL CAPS in a long time, I should do that again.
>>309066A spinner? How the heck do you use a spinner? Just flick it to determine the outcome of the event?>Realize that you're probably the only one here to use dice to measure your luck and success in every task. Promise self to get less meta about mysterious mechanics.Uh, lets ask what the other heads think of aspirin. He sure has some fluffy hair, huh? I bet he hates getting it ruffled. Man do I want psionics. Even the most useless psionic power, smelling what other people smell, would be neat.
>>309066Ask the both of them how their relationships go with the other district heads.
>>309095It influences the style/mood/method of outcomes, ranging from Red, Blue, Green and Yellow...which I have yet to determine the result.Nicotine runs a casino, it's probably natural for her to have different gambling tools. You're going to hold on to your dice for now, though.You ask her and Saccharin for their opinions on Aspirin.>"Oh, the egghead? Yeah, he's sorta chill. Usually spends his time helping serious patients or resting in his office. He also gave me a cool upgrade to my pheromones, too. Now I can be all Queen Bee and stuff. Guess you could say...">"He's an awesome guy! I have superpowers because of him! I can stay young forever and regenerate like a lizard!"Nicotine leans closer to you.>"And she makes frequent use of that."You ask her about the head doctor's powers and express desire at having psionic capabilities yourself.>"Ah, 'fraid there's nothing we can do 'bout that. I think it's something people are born with, so you can't just -get- it, and people have tried. Besides, isn't the ability to toggle your fertility—in both ways—good enough? Among other things...">>309268You are going to ask them about their relationships with the other district heads when the waitress from earlier shows up with a soup bowl.>"I'm so sorry for the delay!"As she approaches the table, she missteps and trips, sending the foodstuffs flying towards your table. You brace for impact as the hot, steamy liquid is on a collision course with your face. From the corner of your vision, something vague blurs for a splitsecond. Your eyelids close as you expect stinging pain yet it never comes. Instead you open your eyes and you see another person show up, holding two bowls expertly then lays them on your table with ease.>"Chervil, how about you go take a break? I'll handle it from here, you can always try again next time.">"I-I'm so sorry, Caff! Thank you for your patience!">"As for your salads, please wait for a couple more minutes as the chefs are doing their best. In the meantime, is there anything I can help you with?"Jeebus his character is hard to draw.
>>309375Inquire if this is the district head (obviously), and go ahead with the usual bout of asking for neutrality.
>>309375>is there anything I can help you with?"yeah could we get one agreement of neutrality please?
>>309388>>309617>>309647There's no need to question as Nicotine introduces you to her anyway.>"Whirlpool, this is Caffeine—Head of the Residential District. Hey Caff, how's it shakin'?">"I'm fine, thank you asking. Whirlpool, was it? I see you're a friend of Nicotine."Your companions begin partaking the soup with utmost curiosity, Betelgeuse in particular is savoring the aroma of the vegetable soup. Meanwhile Saccharin remains seated, waiting for her sugary sweets. Remembering Nicotine's earlier, you take the initiative to seek Caffeine's neutrality before she whisks herself away for her job.>"Hm? You want me to leave you alone? Why should I? You seem like good people."Nicotine explains that you are a recent arrival from space and has managed to befriend the tribals. She adds that they are actually distant descendants of a long-extinct scientist colony, whose home and technologies have been wrongfully taken by this establishment's first staff members. Lastly, she tells her that the reason why we're asking for her neutrality is that we're heading to the management district and it would be impossible to progress if she decides to stop us.>"Oh dear that sounds very tragic. Why don't I just help you outright? It's not like you're out to hurt innocent people or something. I can tell my entire staff to continue working in my stead so I can come along."Mu Cephei offhandedly claims that Nicotine finds her very beautiful.>"H-Hey now, what my colleague is into is her business alone. You shouldn't make fun of people's sexuality like that."Betelgeuse discreetly informs you that she didn't sense any air movement from Caffeine's quick movement.Last update for the night, will post again in 12-16 hours, this is what I get for such a complex character designAnyone else here who remembers Diner Dash? No? Just me? Fine then.
>>309661>a line of dialog from the original draft made it>too sleepy to change itWhatever, goodnight everyone.
>>309661Finish your meals then go ahead towards Propane's district.
>>309661No air gusts from that, huh? Perhaps she is not a speedster, but rather has enhanced reflexes and utilizes the same principle behind a Alcubierre Drive to shorten the distance between herself and a desired destination. She is not moving quickly, there is simply less space to travel. That explains the blurring too, as light would be distorted when going through the effect area.
>>309874This is going to take a while, your friends are stunned from having never eaten something different before. Caffeine blinks out of your view for a few moments before returning with a wide plate of leafy salads and a small plate with four large cupcakes—the latter is presumably for Saccharin.>>310084Although you wonder how she managed to collect all the airborne soup back into the bowls. Errai and Betelgeuse are too busy enjoying their meals to discuss the latter's observation. You ask Caffeine about her secret to her ability.>"I'd tell you but that's a se-"Saccharin swiftly interjects.>"She has a watch that gives her personal time manipulation or somethin'. What? It's not that special."
>>311710Ask her for some "dessert", *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*.
>>311710You know, a lot of these powers are...ill fitting? Not all, but some. For instance, saccharine, being hyperactive, should be the speedster with time manipulation. The law enforcer should have empathy to root out lies and criminal thoughts. Aspirin should have the super regeneration maybe, for blood transfusions or something?The firefighter having freezing and the pheremone ability of nicotine do make plenty of sense, though.I wonder what kind of monstrous powers the management head has. Possibly none, since he's apparently too paranoid to meet with other heads. Doubt he's willing to trust anyone enough to let them work on him.Man, I wonder what powers our crew would have if they got some.
>>311734Backing>>311710Eat the salad
>>311710Even though it is highly inappropriate in such a public setting, go for some more mouth feeding with Errai.
I drew some Caffeine fanart
>>311734>"Ooh, I see~"Caffeine returns the wink then fades right before your eyes.>>311763You take some salad on your plate, with the dressing conveniently applied already. You fork one of the leaves into your mouth and marvel at how good it tastes compared to Errai's paste...no offense.Caffeine returns holding a plate of gourmet sweets.>"Here's our mystery dessert platter, I hope you enjoy it."Saccharin gives you a thumbs up for good taste. Huh, you expected something else.>>312057She's too entranced in eating at her own pace. Can't blame her, this is probably the equivalent of downing an entire bottle of ambrosia.For a second there, I thought you meant Mouth-to-Mouth feeding>>312077Thank you so much, anon! Fanart grants me strength!>>311758I agree with the thematic mismatch, but I still like the utility reasons. Caffeine needs to be almost everywhere at once and Aspirin needs to make accurate diagnoses. Admittedly, Sacc's power was for the surprise had we fought her physically. Let's just say the management head isn't very wise.Whirlpool's Spatial Distortion sorta already counts, but being at the POOR competency...
>>312219>major art error detected just now>mfwImage courtesy of a drawfriend
Rolled 2 (1d3)>>312219One of the desserts calls out to whirlpool in particular. The...1 - cylinder2 - pyramid3 - sphereIs particularly enticing, and we must try it. Offer the other two to errai and your long lost sister.
>>312263Observe and smell the desserts before trying them
>>312366Observe them? Are you expecting them to come to life, anon?They are simply desserts, to be eaten for pleasure. The sweet, kindly caffeine would not bring us anything bad.
>>312219>Fanart gives me strengthFANART VAMPIRE AAAAA
>>312263Caffeine places the platter in front of your plate. You find the pyramid-shaped dessert deliciously-alluring so you carefully pick it up with your utensils and place it on top of your place. Errai is still engrossed on her vegetable soup while Nicotine's munching on some tuna pie. You promise yourself that you'll save the other two dessert items for them.>>312366It smells sweet alright, with a mild tinge of coolness. You initially assume that it would taste like chocolate but you can't sniff the cocoa powder in there. Maybe it's just sugar or something.I don't know what your game is>>312455feed me, Seymour
>>312569Now give it a little lick. If it's good, then proceed to consume it in a sexual manner while making direct contact with Errai. If it's bad, still do it while hiding the fact that it disgusts you.
>>312569Bite into it.Hope it isn't a hard candy.
Rolled 1 (1d6)>>312583Your fork sinks easily into the dessert. You touch it with the tip of your tongue as you slowly ease into licking it like ice cream. Errai is still too invested in her food to bother but that's fine, you're still tasting this unfamiliar sugar triangle.>>312616You sink your teeth into the sweet. The texture reminds you of chocolate even though it tastes nothing like it. It's sweet, almost like vanilla yet inexplicably also tastes...futuristic. There's this water-like sensation as you slosh it around your mouth. You open up and swallow it whole. There's some sort of cold, weird-tasting liquid that is inside the core. It also has a particular scent...something Nicotine would be very familiar with.(1/2)
>>312760Hmm, this tastes pretty exotic overall. A wonderful attempt at a soft dessert with some kind of drink inside. After savoring it for a few more moments, you turn towards Nicotine to tell her about it but your words spill through your mouth like hot spaghetti. Your consciousness starts to feel hazy and the world progressively becomes more difficult to navigate. Your brain feels like it's swirling in a vortex and your limbs slip through space as if it was coated in grease. You try to stand up from your seat to find medical attention but your legs tangle up, causing you to trip and dislodge your hat. You fall onto the floor and your vision turns dark.>"HOW WAS I SUPposed to know t̷h̷a̷t̷ ̷s̷h̷e̷ ̷h̷a̷d̷ ̷l̷o̷w̷.̷.̷.̷..!!"Caffeine's worried voice is the last thing you hear before you become unconscious.(2/2)Maybe you'd like a time skip, or control a different character for a while, hmm?
>>312820Aw jeeze, what a lightweight!>Your CODENAME is CAFFEINE and you hope to god you didn't accidentally kill someone today. Panic and consider your options. Maybe you should ring Aspirin's cellphone for some advice?
>>312828You are now Caffeine, head of the Residential District. A patron has just passed out from sudden intoxication. Despite your attempts at staying calm, deep down you know you messed up. You consider reprimanding the pastry chef but you realize it was you who delivered the dessert to her. You really wish you could have seen this coming. It's difficult to do some damage control like this. Nicotine looks upset with you while her tribal friends are in equal parts shock and worry. Saccharine's just...watching, and it's sorta creepy.>Maybe you should ring Aspirin's cellphone for some advice?That would take too much time! Instead you decide to just bring her there yourself but...oof...she's heavy. What is she carrying? Regardless, you need to bring her up to the Medical District ASAP, but how?Last update for the evening. A bit early, isn't it? Well, with my update rate another one would be at 11pm and I need to wake up even earlier tomorrow.Next thread once this one hits page 6/7/8, we have plenty of time.
>>312976Grab one of the carts from the kitchen
>>312976Wait, do the chefs regularly put drugs in the food? Were we actually supposed to give that box of narcotics (which we wanted to be psyches, but whatever) to that regular chef from earlier?
>>313181The weird tasting liquid was probably some form of alcohol
>>313187>laudanum has alcohol in it
>>312976Give her, like, mouth to mouth. Hehehe.
>>313326This will probably kill whirlpool
>>313071>>313234The kitchen carts are often too small, the biggest one -could- carry her but she'll wake up with some nasty neck pains. Bellman carts on the other hand...>>313326Mouth-to-mouth seems like a good idea at first but it doesn't work all the time. Plus, you'd end up, like, kissing her and such. She might vomit even which is very disgusting and you'd stain your favorite apron. First Aid does sound like a good idea, but alcohol poisoning is a serious thing.>>313997"this kills the whirlpool"
>>315035Speed away to find a bellman cart to carry Whirlpool
>>315035Despair over the fact that you kept promising yourself that you would go to the gym more but have been too busy. If only you has the physical strength to carry her- WAIT, A FIREMAN'S CARRY! ITS DESIGNED FOR EVEN HEFTY FOLK, ISNT IT?
>>315047That shouldn't be a problem, being a district head has its perks. You compress and accelerate your personal flow of time and casually walk towards the main elevator hall. Better save that energy for carrying Whirlpool. There's an idle bellhop with the cart nearby. You resume your normal time flow and ask if you can borrow his cart, mentioning that it's an emergency. Hearing the urgency in your voice, he agrees to lend you the cart, it's staff property anyway. You casually walk back to the dining area while time is slowed like molasses and return to the unconscious patron. Nicotine and one of the tribals have only begun to stand up from their seats.>>315066People kept saying that you ought to go to the gym but that takes time! Besides, your physical work already is a form of exercise. You try to pull up the unconscious patron but man, it's tough. You haven't lifted anyone in a long time outside of lost children. Still you manage to do so with Nicotine's help, removing the coat in the process to avoid restricting airways. Now all you have to do is get her to the Medical District. You preemptively send Aspirin a text message requesting some preparations before making your way to the ER.
>>315301Get one of the tribals (obviously Errai) to help you push the cart to the ERThen maybe switch perspective to Errai
>>315301Rush to the medical districtCasually flirt the bae when you see him, before explaining what went down. It might be an emergency, but you two are usually busy, so seeing each other can sometimes be rare.
>>315301Verify Whirlpool is continuing to breathing/heart is still beating
>>315314You recruit one of Whirlpool's tribal companions, specifically the one in the schoolgirl uniform. You have to wonder how did they get such nice clothing, maybe someone bought it for them? Nevertheless, her accompaniment would be useful once the soon-to-be patient wakes up.-->Then maybe switch perspective to ErraiYou are now Errai, Whirlpool's lover and outdoor scientist. You're deeply worried when you saw her pass out like that. Hopefully it's temporary and the district head promises to make up for this accident.>>315330Although you volunteer to help push the cart, Caffeine instructs you to stand on it instead and grip tightly instead.>"Brace yourself, you might get dizzy from this one."Before you know it you're at an elevator, with Caffeine waiting impatiently.>"Please please please please...">>315526She still is, sorta reminding you about yesterday's events when you almost died.
>>315576Reassure caffeine to calm her down
>>315576Try to comfort Caffeine, and ask when we'll get to an ambulance/Medical district
>>315576Ask Caffine what was in the dessert that Whirlpool ate.
>>315834This is also a good idea
>>315585>>315829Caffeine looks very panicked and sorry for herself. You place a hand on her shoulder and say that she doesn't have to push herself so hard for others. You add that you and your kin can pull their own weight, and Whirlpool is going to be absolutely fine.>"Yeah...I sure hope so. It's just..I work so hard to take care of these people.">>315834>>315842>"It's strong wine, some kind of popular alcoholic beverage. You see, the Mystery Dessert Platter is an adult-only dish that is not listed on the menu and its quirks change depending on the whims of the chef. I wasn't expecting your friend to be incredibly lightweight. Maybe I should issue a warning next time."The bell dings and the elevator doors open. The two of you bring the unconscious Whirlpool inside and Caffeine sets the destination to the Medical District.Next update in several more hours so take a break/sleep if you're in a different timezone.
>>316059Ask how she became a head. What's that hiring process even like?
I did say that I'm going to put up a new thread on Page 6/7, so here it is.>>316473>>316473>>316473Also decided to begin namefagging out of vanity.
