Hello all and welcome to my first ever side quest! With the success of Marvel Quest I wanted to test out the waters for a bit of a side quest that people seem to be on board with.A Symbiote Quest! Rules are the standard, voting will be 20 minutes. Rolls will be best of three 1d100s, and we are infact using crits! First post up soon!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUhVCoTsBaMYou rise from your bed, the base tones of the Pillar Men waking you from the previous nights slumber. As the sheets fall off you they reveal your boxer wearing form to the world, and contrary to the people the song is dedicated to...You are a scrawny little puke. You're tall, yeah but you're as fat as a pole, and your musculature is... wanting. The same man in the mirror only serving to reinforce your statement. God your scrawny. Your hair a mess, your grades sub-par, no extracurricular activities to speak of. All you really do the rest of the day except for going to school is browsing and shitposting on /cg/, Capes General.Fuck you need to do something or your life is just going to stay bitter and grey. On the bright side, today is your second year of High-School, specifically at Midtown High School. So, you know, new beginnings and all that. You get your hair in order, brush your teeth and put on some deodorant, as you're not a complete freak, you don't piss in bottles... and you hope it never comes to that.You head down stairs and into the kitchen, grabbing yourself some Special K. You're out of anything else and you figure if it's doing wonders for your Uncle, might as well do wonders for you! Cereal first of course. You check the time an- HOLY SHIT IT'S 6:50 YOU GOT TEN MINUTES!!You scarf down the rest of your breakfast, OJ almost killing you through suffocation, and rush out the door! You'll just have to text Uncle later.Christ you're a mess sometimes. Speaking of which, what IS your name?>Michael Mason>Benson Baldomar>Rod Willabert>Vladimir Steponas >Write in...?
>>1604935>Vladimir SteponasThe only name that seems as weird as Solomon.

>>1604998actualy it wasn't leech, but I think I got it wrong. yes venom.[ill stop with the puns]
>>1605008You better not
>>1605013better not what? stop with the puns or don't stop the puns?
>>1605020No, DON'T stop with the puns. You'll be running into Spidey eventually and you're gonna need material.Post will be up soon
>>1605024in that case. OP here is something to help our thoughts pict
"itsy wits'y spider, climbed up the Manhattan wall,down came the vemon to send you with a fall."
You finally make it to the bus stop, just in time to run nose fucking first into the doors, knocking you on your ass with a crack when you land. You're certain it's not your tail bone but as you draw your phone from your back pocket... yeah it's snapped in two. Just your luck.The bus driver opens the door, a shit eating grin on his face, "Usually people get the door on their way OUT!"He laughs hysterically at his own joke, hell so does most of the bus. You stand up and put the now snapped phone into your backpack, climbing aboard. There's all manner of people here, though you find someone particularly familiar. Kirk Ferguson, your long time friend since middle school. You call him Captain Kirk cause he's a huge Star Trek nerd, and he calls you Count Vladimir... cause why the hell not. "Hey Kirk," you say as you sit down next to him, "how're you this morning?""Just fine Vlad, Cubans got your shirt?"You look down and only now do you realise you had spilled a bit of Orange juice from your rushed breakfast. And of course you ain't got jack to clean it up with. Today feels like it's going to suck."Here, I got some tissues," Kirk says, as he hands you the gneric storebrand. Sucks that he can't afford anything else, though you're certainly not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Uncle raised you better."Thanks man," you wipe the juice from your shirt and proceed to just throw away the tissue to th presumed empty back seat, only to earn you protest. "Hey!" The person behind you shouts, standing up from their seat to peek over yours.Oh hey, it's that one photography kid, for year book... what was his name again? Petre Purker? Pedro Porkins?"Hey, you're...""Peter Parker.""Right! Right, Peter Parker, you're with year book! Hey man, sorry, I thought that seat was empty." "It's alright, no harm done. Just watch where you're throwing things next time." He hands you the tissue back and you stuff it in your pocket to throw it away properly later. >Cont.
you know for a web slinger your very lick with your quipsquestion you pajama wearing moron, if I break all the walls on the ground floor, will you be more upset I got rid of walls to climb? or I endangered innocent lives.[and if we are a good guy]take a hike red pants -do a double look- red with blue? what sort of fashion sense did your mother give you?
>>1605082very slick, not lick
>>1605077>Cont.At last, Midtown High. Better known as Public School 108 by the feds. Students are hustling to and fro, chatting up with friends, heading to class... really just living their lives. You honestly feel a bit jealous at evryone else. Your Uncle can just BARELY afford to house the both of you and you have no income to speak of... you really need to do something about that.You and Kirk exit the bus, rudely pushed out of the way by what many consider to be Midtown High's greatest Athlete, Flash Thompson. You hate this man with a passion. The spitting image of all you see wrong with the world, a "Chad" in every sense of the word. People sometimes literally clamoring to have his kids, fuck just cause he can run a fucking ball down a field. Always thinks he's better than everyone... Christ you wish you could teach him a lesson."I'll see you later Vlad, I need to have a chat with Ms. Edwards about my science project.""Alright man, see you later." Kirk dissapears into the crowd and you are left alone. You don't know where Parker went so, that's cut off... what to do now? >Simply go to class>Go to the bathroom... just scribbl shit on the walls... you feel like shit.>Maybe... talk? With someone?
>>1605105forgot the goddamn picture.
>go to classI might need sleep in a few mins, so ill help how I can, by being a sarcastic ass
>>1605105>Maybe... talk? With someone?
Angst and rage filled villainsMate you need to see a shrink, or talk with a teddy or something JesusYou weren't very popular in school were you?When called a insulting nameNow that's just rudeYour a very crude person aren't you?Against a young heroAre you sure you passed your primary exams yet?
>>1605134Talk with Gwen Stacy if is possible. Let the cuckening begin.
>>1605105>Simply go to classPff, who need social interaction, am I right?
>>1605148>>1605140>>1605134>>1605117Goddamn not many people here huh? Oh well, writing.
Deciding against socializing or whallowing in angst, you opt to simply go to class. Luckily your very first period is computer science! So most of the imt you simply browse /cg/ for shit and giggles and copy other peoples work. It usually earns you a B so for the most part you're content with it. You take your lanky self up to the computer lab and sit down waiting for class to begin. You sit down next to a girl you hadn't seen before, though now that you think about it... she too seems familiar. It's a nagging sensation but you just can't put your finger on it... oh well. Class begins and you immediatly begin browsing /cg/, getting on the up and up about all the super goings on. Skrull just want hugs, Tony Stark is a drunk, Spider Man is a Menace in those pants, the usual it seems. Though, one thread seems to catch your eye. It's a Spidey Thread, and the webm has a video of Spidier Man fighting some big black monster, like a negative version of himself but with WAY more teeth.You hear rumbling outside, and you suddenly realise, that webm was just shot outside the building. Oh shit.Just then, everyting explodes. A mass of black suddenly tears through the lab as you're knocked back on your ass, witnessing that the same black monster fighting Spider-Man has jut crashed into YOUR school!OH SHIT It's hissing at the, and low and behold, Spider Man is actually stand on the precipise of the cavernous opening he and the monster had just fashioned, "Eddie, you have to stop! That thing is going to tear you apart!" That THING has a name? And it's name is Eddie? The monster simply hisses and gargles at the Wall-Crawler, before throwing slabs of stone at him, forcing him and the beast back out into the world. Holy shit. That was fucking cool.You rush out to see where they've gone, but it seems they've taken their fight elsewhere into the city... fuck you wish you had super powers...>Cont.
Just then... you feel an odd... sliming sensation, coming from your leg. It's cold and almost moist and feels fucking WEIRD!You look own and confirm you haven't pissed yourself, but you quickly bring up your pant leg and find that it's COVERED in that freaky black goo that the monster had all over it! You scream in fear, this thing coming practically absorbing you as it goes, crawling up to your torso and worming its way onto your throat! HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT[/] HOLY SHIT>TEAR THIS FUCKING THING OFF>JESUS H CHRIST YOU'RE TERRIFIED, TRY TO CLAW AT IT >WHY DOES IT FEEL SO ALIVE!?
>>1605229>>WHY DOES IT FEEL SO ALIVE!?PANIC.
>>1605229>JESUS H CHRIST YOU'RE TERRIFIED, TRY TO CLAW AT IT >WHY DOES IT FEEL SO ALIVE!?
>>1605229>TEAR THIS FUCKING THING OFF
>>1605234>>1605235>>1605239>>1605259FULL PANIC MODE IS A GO>WRITING
You claw at your neck and limbs frantically, the black goop slowly overtaking more and more of your being as it oozes its way onto and into you. It feels so unatural, it feels so goddamn weird, and oh god it's just reached nipples HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK.You're brought down to your knees as the goo creeps up your fingers, inching into crevices you didn't know you had. It's like Chinese Torture and you can't do anything about it as it finishes absorbing your hands into its black mass, and you look on powerless in horror at this transformation. Your hands are now completly engulfed, and your fingers morphed into a sick mangled perversion of claws better suited to demons that to man.You try to throw your headback to scream but its gotten to your mouth. You open and try to scream, but you cannot, as the goo crawls into your nose.All is black...We feel... whole.>Cont.
>>1605287>Cont.You awake with a start, shooting up from your lying position. Your heart is about to leap out of your chest as you finally let out an ear rending scream of terror. Nurses rush in and hold you down, reassuring you that it's okay, all is right. "Where the hell am I?!" you ask, heartbeat still ringing in your ears."Calm down, you're in Presbyterian!" Jesus H, you're in a hospital? How the hell did you get here?"What happened, did you get it? Is it gone!?" You ask frantically, quickly looking yourself over and under your scrubs."If you mean that monster, yes. Spider Man got it though we were called in to handle any injuries. You were among those. You were unconscious but mostly unharmed but we had to be sure, now calm down! Deep breaths, dee~eep breaths."As patronizing as she might be, you do calm down, following her instructions to breath deeply. Finally, you calm down. Looking around you see that you're in fact not the only one here. There's a few others, five precisely lied in a row next to you. They don't look too badly injured but yeah... better to make sure."So... you feeling better?""Yeah... yeah I feel fine." "Good. Wait here and you'll be cleared with a clean bill of health, and you can check out then."The nurse exits the room and goes back to the hallway, leaving you and the rest of the patients alone in the room. Luckily you haven't got an IV stuck in you so you simply sit up on the side of the bed...Now what? >Get up, go to the bathroom, look for that... THING.>Wait for the doctor. He'll only be a few minutes... you think. >Doctor might not be here too soon... guess you could head out and find some grub in the cafeteria. You are pretty hungry.
>>1605329>Get up, go to the bathroom, look for that... THING.
>>1605329>>Get up, go to the bathroom, look for that... THING.
>>1605332>>1605333>>1605334>>1605335>>1605346Oh sweet, more people! You guys need to discuss more cause goddamn I thought there was nobody here! >Writing!
>>1605349I wasn't here.>>1605034>>1605040Are you using these? Or should I ignore them.
>>1605353I mean they're cool but nah, ignore those, as we will not be using them.
>>1605349I decided to take a look when I saw the pic of Carnage.
>>1605373And Carnage you shall have, sooner than you think.
You get up from your lounger and head bathroom adjacent to your bed, and promptly lock yourself in. Quickly you get to the mirror and undo your scrub completely, tying it around your waist an-- WHOA!Holy SHIT.Were those always there!? Goddamn you are TRIMMED . What IS this?Experimentally you flex and poke at your stomach and find that yes, you now have a six pack... fucking SWEET! In fact now that you're looking at it, whole sale your entire body is now... a lot more muscly! Now your alarm clock is WAY more fitting! Gonna get dat Jojo bod, woo! But now's no time to get distracted. Getting back to the task at hand, you keep looking for that THING that crawled all over your back at school. You examine every possible crevice, look in each nook and cranny and find... nothing. You've look at your finger tips too and where there HAD been claws, your nails are back to normal. No goo just... keratin.You hear a knock at the door, "Mr. Stepanos, are you in there?"It's a male voice so you assume it's the doctor, "Yes, coming, one sec!" You turn on the air dryer to give off the impression that you were washing your hands, rather than looking for some kind of weird black gunk that invaded your mouth forcefully like one of your Japanese animes. You unlock the door and walk out, greeted by a smiling white coat. "I'm here about clearing you out. We ran all the tests we needed and you're free to go."He hands you your clothes back which you happily take. "Try and stay out of the way of any super powered brawlers, alright?" You give an awkward nod in response."Y-yeah... I'll try..."It takes fiber in your being not to say 'you too'. You change back into your clothes and head out the hospital, only to find that it's 5:30. Uncle must be worried sick about you.>Try to catch the bus, it's fast.>Nah, too much traffic, take the metro back home instead.>Fuck it, you can walk all the way back.
>>1605395>Fuck it, you can walk all the way back.Maybe get something to eat along the way.
>>1605395>>Try to catch the bus, it's fast.GONNA GO FAST.
>>1605395>>Try to catch the bus, it's fast.

>>1605434Sure, why not?
>>1605395>Nah, too much traffic, take the metro back home instead.Um... do we not have a cell phone? Is there a reason we can't call home about what happened or, hell, even go back to the hospital and ask if we can borrow their phone? We aren't an asshole yet.
>>1605439EAT, FUEL FOR SWOLE.GET HUGE.SWOOOLE.
>>1605434>DO you stop by to grab something on the way?Nah, its best to just get home. Shit is too weird right now. Do we have a cell phone?
>>1605445>>1605454Nope. We butt crushed our phone.Bony butt broke the thing in two.

Lanky, 1 good friend, shitposting, no gains having beta faggot who feels NOTHING good happens to him. That is why.
>>1605460Oops. Didn't see we had broke our phone. I just joined so shame on me for not fully reading all the early text. Thanks.
After seeing those fucking GREAT abs you had (which you decide to feel again, just to check if they're still there, you're just 'mirin yourself), you wonder almost aloud, what else is new? With that to ponder, you decide to skip both the metro and bus and simply... walk home. Yeah sure it's in the Bronx but fuck it, you'll grab something to eat on the way there. Plenty of restaurants on the way! It's been a few minutes now, 40 to be precise, and you've not even brokn a sweat! Hell you don't even feel winded or out of breath! You'dve been dragging your feet behind you back at the half an hour mark but here you are, marathoning this sucker! Though there's one tiny problem...GROWLThat was your stomach. You are very hungry it seems.Looking around you don't see anythign too cheap, as you've only got a 25 dollar budget, not to mntion you need to head home as quickly as possible, so stopping for a bite is out of the question. You decide on some Pizza for the time being, as you have NO clue what the hell nutrition means, and decide to stop at the nearest, greasiest, most delicious smelling place you find. Inside is an aroma of wonderful smells, all of them wafting into your nose, quickly dissipating the thought of that horrid gunk previously occupy your nasal passages.You check your wallet and god fucking damn it you've only got your debit card and these bastards take cash only. You can still back out of this but some asshole shoves by you and straight up to the counter. Prick.Though, he's awfully quit for someone ordering pizza. And why is the cashier taking money out-- oh god you're an idiot this is a robbery.What do you do?>Be bold. Rush this asshole from behind, he wont see you coming! >You think you saw some cops further down the block! >Meh, fuck it. Find some place that accepts debit.
>>1605536>Be bold. Rush this asshole from behind, he wont see you coming!Try hitting him with a chair or something.
>>1605536>Meh, fuck it. Find some place that accepts debit.
>>1605536>Be bold. Rush this asshole from behind, he wont see you coming!We're currently on a power trip, let's not stop it too soon.
>>1605536>>Meh, fuck it. Find some place that accepts debitWe ain't an hero, fuck this.PEACE
>>1605536>You think you saw some cops further down the block!Since I dont want to do metagaming for now I choose the IC option
>>1605536>Be bold. Rush this asshole from behind, he wont see you coming! in before we don't even get free pizza out of the deal.
>>1605536>Post YFW we break something>Be bold. Rush this asshole from behind, he wont see you coming!
>>1605557>>1605554>>1605546>>1605541Rush this bum! Roll me a 1d100!
>>1605550We have just been admiring our huge muscles and we clearly have a thing for super heroes. It's not too out of character that we get "over confident" here and decide to intervene. Plus the symbiote could be subtlety messing with our reasoning abilities.It is a shame we decided to walk home, though. That was kind of out of character.

>>1605605Wuh... why? Why Anon why?>>1605623Well, he did say criticals would be in play...
>>1605623Nah, I'm doing crits so unfortunately you failed. No worries though my friend... You're covered.
This is fucking GREATYou get to stop a MUGGING!! Silently, you sneak up on the thug. You bring up your two fists above your head in your best impression of William Shatner, and creep up behind him. The poor bastard doesn't even know what's coming for him. It almost feels wrong but he chose this... it's his fault. We simply want to do what's right.With a swiftness you didn't even know you possessed you bring down your hands straight onto his skull. You feel his cranium crack under the pressure and the strength and the force of the blow. a resounding and horrifying CRACK is heard through out the store as he falls forward, bashing his head straight onto the counter of the store he was just robbing. He's dropped his gun, and the cashier is suddenly stunned. The restaurant is in shock. All is silent. Until... an ERUPTION of cheer suddenly explodes forth from the patrons! They're clapping, and they're really just all around impressed! "Hey! Kid! What's your name?" The cashier finally asks. "Vladimir Stepanos," you answer."Give it up for Vlad everyone! One free slice on the house!" Everyone woos while the cashier, who you now know is named Mike, hands you a slice, and the cops you had seen down the block come and arrest the robber, getting him proper care, congratulating you and thanking you for making their lives easier. "I'll be sure to let my boss know about this kid! Mr. H always appreciates good Samaritans!" You thank him before you head out.___________________________________________________You're a few minutes from home, and you just finished your pizza. You stop briefly. Not a few moments ago you just stopped a mugging. Like... like a hero!And those people. Cheering that you can just beat the tar out of someone yeah but, hey! You protected them! And they were real thankful for it! Hell some of them took pictures with you! Hell maybe you'll end up on the news! It feels...>Good.>Great! > actually, you don't feel anything
>>1605704>> actually, you don't feel anythingDEHUMANIZE YOURSELF AND FACE TO BLOODSHED.
>>1605704>> actually, you don't feel anything

>>1605717>>1605723>>1605724>>1605726Oh come on guys, don't feed the symbiote.
>>1605704>Great!Breaking the tie
>>1605728No metagaming, we're acting in character here.
>>1605732This is not metagaming, it's just me complaining, there are no obvious choices there anon dearest.
>>1605731>>1605726>>1605724>>1605723>>1605717Alrighty then! >Writing now!
You let your endorphin rush... you've very little words to describe how that just made you feel. It was like your Birthday, Halloween, and Christmas all rolled into one. Your vocabulary fails you utterly in trying to fully encapsulate this feeling of ecstasy... so all you can really say about it is... It felt great...YOU feel great...WE feel great_______________________________________Finally, you reach home. It's 6:30 and Your uncle must be worried sick about you being out so late since usually you get back around 4:00. You hope the hospital contacted him. You step up back to the door and open it, finding Uncle on the other side."Vladimir!" He practically leaps up from the chair he had been sitting in, and in a few paces closes the gap between you, embracing you in a hug."Are you alright? I heard about the incident, I thought you had gotten hurt and I hadn't received any calls! You are alright, aren't you? Not hurt?"He's fussing over you like never before. Hell he hasn't looked this worried since you came home with your first black eye. "I'm fine Uncle, really. Just had a bit of trouble at school as I'm sure you saw," you say hinting over to the TV turned to the news."Well still, you stay out this late, I thought something had happened to you! But... you're here now, and that's what's important. You have homework to do?""Only a few things Uncle. I'll be done around 7:30.""Good, I'll set to making diner. Hope you like lasagna!""You know I love it." You hug your Uncle once more before he sets off to the kitchen, presumably to finish cooking the lasagna he mentioned.You of course lied about your homework though. You've got JACK, cause you were in a hospital th whole day. If that doesn't excuse you from at least some work you don't know what does. You head upstairs for the day and back into your room. It's kind of Spartan, with the most decorated thing here being your Battle station. Three monitors and you dare anyone to find a better toasted than the one you've got running. A whole 10 terabytes of memory, thing almost takes up the whole corner of the room, and you're certain it's charred your stand.You toss your bag over to the side, and settle down. You click away at the keyboard only to find... the keys are stuck to your finger tips.The fuck?>Try and take them off>Try and put them back in place.>Go to your bathroom and try to pry them off with something.Hope you approve my choice of Uncle!
>>1605806>>Try and put them back in place.
>>1605806>Try and put them back in place.

You try and put the keys back in their place but all you manage to do is click them back and lift the whole keyboard off the desk, STILL STUCK TO YOUR FINGER TIPS! You try to shake it off but you only make the situation worse.You close your eyes. Take a deep breath, and set the keyboard down... deep breaths... in and out... calm. Breathe deep... exhale.You lift gently your fingers from the keyboard, making sure you don't feel any weird... adhesive feeling on your hands. Sure enough, you find yourself without keyboard on your hands! Good! Let's keep it that way. For the moment you simply head to the shower and relax in the hot water. Today was a good day... We had a productive day."Vladimir! Dinner! Come and get it!"And get it you do, cause damn do you love Uncle's lasagna. You thank him and take the lasagna up to your room and eat it there... you feel sleepy. Very sleepy. You undress in your boxers and look at yourself in the mirror once more. Fuck yeah, you're swole as fuck and you've never done a crunch in your life to earn this sweet pack... maybe you should... but not tonight.You lie down... and shut your eyes. We had fun today... and we're going to have even more fun tomorrow. You dream of black._______________________________________And that's the end of issue 1 folks! I'll stick around to answer any questions you may have but make 'em snappy! Cause It's 3:40 in the AM here, and I question my sanity every time I do these!
>>1605963@TrueBelieverQMshould do it for ya
>>1606009Thanks.Out of curiosity... what would have happened if we had not crit failed and had pulled off a 97 on the surprise roll?
>>1605936So,the two quests are on the same universe? Are we getting a crossover sometime?
>>1606034Youd've had to roll again to either meet Hammerhead directly or to meet one of Wilson Fisk's associates, who'd go on to tell him about you.
>>1606047Not in the near future, no. As I have no idea how to right a crossover like that. Two of my own characters teaming up would pose a challenge that I would enjoy, but have no reason to do just yet.So maybe.
>>1606140 I don't know who any of those are... I suppose I should read more comics.
>>1606158Yeah they're all pretty significant in Spiderman world. Especially Fisk.
We malice or contagen now?
>>1605357>>1605353was just to help any ideasguys I think we should treat our symbiote as a friend, consider what they say and all that. and we might even be symbore in the end. if we do it right.and then we can do pic related
>>1607489I don't see why not. He helped us not be a loser.
I like Malice as a name
>>1607992I think we're gonna be Venom.
>>1607992no wait until we actualy "use" our symbiote and what we use him for, because that will affect our name eg a villain called vallienta hero called maliceit would be a messalso lets spitball some insults for both heros and villians, just incase.here are mine>>1605140>>1605040>>1605082`that last one is very slick not lick
>>1608011And quest dropped
>>1608077Well you'll be happy to know it's not Venom.That being said I actually don't know WHAT Symbiote to use, since Toxin's already taken by that other Symbiote Quest, and I don't want to seem like a rip off. Carnage is... well, Carnage.And pretty much everyone else is now either dead or irrelevant. On that note! https://strawpoll.com/ybb3731
>>1608103Make up your own symbiote. Or use an anti form. Anti toxin?
>>1608105That's on option in the strawpoll and what I had originally planned to do, but this is more of a personality quiz for the Symbiote bonded to you. They'll still have an original name, but they need have a personality, which I'm letting the player base decide on.Should have worded that poll better honestly, Christ I'm stupid.
>>1608106there is always scorn and hybrid.I knew it would help some how>>1605034
>>1607992How's "Fury" as a name.It's pretty fitting with how we crushed that robber.Fury can also be a "good" name if we decide to go that route (as in righteous fury).
>>1608132Are we going to run into nick fury?
>>1608139>>1608137>>1608132>>1608011Real quick question, who would NOT be opposed to me running right now? 4's a good number to start running with, then grab more and more people...
>>1608181go for it, I'm gonna participate, like I couldn't last night. but there is another thread I post in so expect a name tag
>>1608181I'm not opposed to you starting a run now. I'll be off and on for the next few hours.
>>1608181Go for it!Also, gents. We're gonna need chocolate. A fuck ton of it.
>>1608181I'm all for it.
>>1608191>>1608193>>1608199>>1608221>>1608223Alrighty then, let's get this show on the road! First post will be up in short order!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxWFTIJ4HFMAh the Wiz. When Michael Jackson was still black. You particularly like this song for its overall cheeriness. Really gets you up in the morning. You yawn and hit the snooze on your alarm clock, sitting up out of bed, you head down to your bathroom ready to start another day. You’ve got to say you feel a lot more… spry this morning. Maybe it was the pizza. You brush the sleep from your eyes and turn on the faucet, splashing some water on your face, all the while wondering what kind of mess your hair is in this morning. You take a towel, wipe yourself off an---https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMWoAvgD0A0JESUS H CHRIST NO NOT AGAIN!!You tear into your face rabidly, clawing and scratching, trying to get rid of this monstrosity, only to have it reshape and undo any progress you’ve made. Your entire body, head to toe, even your boxers you went to sleep with are all drowned in black! Oh god, oh god oh man, oh god oh man!knock knock knock“Vladimir? You alright in there? I heard screaming…” Jesus H Christ what do you do!?>There’s a window! LEAP OUT!>Tell him it’s fine! You’ll be right out.>This is fucked! Just let your instincts guide you! (Brb all)
>>1608273>>Tell him it’s fine! You’ll be right out.
>>1608273>Tell him it’s fine! You’ll be right out.
>>1608273>Tell him it’s fine! You’ll be right out.It was just a bit of a nightmare. Honest.
>>1608295>>1608289>>1608287>>1608283>>1608280>>1608277Alright then, back!>Writing
“I’m fine Uncle! Just tripped is all! Don’t worry about me!”“Are you sure? It sounded serious…”“It’s fine Uncle! No worries! Honest!”“Well…. Alright. Come out soon though!”“I will,” that that is a blatant lie. You look into the mirror some more, though your face is completely blank. You can make out the outline of your jaw and nose, but the only thing truly defined are your… ‘Eyes’. Like over-sized white tinted lenses on a constant expanse of dark. The only other thing white on you is that HUGE Spider logo, like a deformed and inflated mockery of Spider Man own. This time around you try to simply scratch your face with your nail but to no avail. It simply won’t come off. Neither does the logo!“Are you alright?”You nearly jump out of your new skin hearing a voice that isn’t yours, barely suppressing the need to yelp out in terror. “No! Don’t be afraid! Please!“Who are you?! Where are you?! You have something to do with this? Answer me!”“I will, I will! But you need to promise me something first. You must promise not to be frightened, and to keep an open mind…”>Sigh and resign to the voice in your head.>Do so, but keep your guard up.>Hell no brain snatcher!
>>1608381>>Sigh and resign to the voice in your head.
>>1608383I'm all for actually being cool to a symbiote.
>>1608381>Do so, but keep your guard up.
>>1608383sigh and resign for a voice in our headfighting it wouldn't help. and he sounds...self consious
>>1608389What if our symbiote is a she? That would be amusingly awkward.
>>1608397they are asexual, but some have personalitys steryotipical of one gender or another, so it doesn't matter
>>1608408Eh, I just thought it would be amusing. Wonder what True is gonna do in regards to the strawpoll.
>>1608418It seemed pretty clear which way the straw poll was leaning...https://strawpoll.com/ybb3731
>>1608383>>1608389>>1608390With great power, great schizophrenia.>>1608407>>1608403>>1608386Be skepticNeed a tie breaker people! Otherwise I'll just roll for it.
>>1608421I'm >>1608386chanigng my vote to resigning.
>>1608425And that does it! >writing
>>1608419I know. I meant, what symbiote he'd use. A known one or a new one?
>>1608437I hope we get a new one. That'd be interesting. It depends on how comfortable True is with inventing a new character.
Screw it. What could go wrong? “Alright… fine. Voices in my head, knew it’d happen eventually.”From the center of your chest a sort of… polyp, sprouts from the weird black gunk. It quickly expands into what appears to be a… head.“We are glad you are awake. Your heart slowed greatly while you were unconscious. We kept it beating."You have very little words to express just how freaked out you really are, and equally lack the expression, though you're certain that your face is contorted in a mix of confusion and horror underneath all of this. This tumor is talking to you. You thought you had just gone crazy but this… this brings it to whole new levels of weird. You sit down on the toilet and just… put your head in your hands.“You seem upset…”“Of course I’m upset! I’ve got some weird, black… CANCER suit on me!”“Cancer? I am not Cancer… I am a symbiote… and you are my host.”“Host!?”You hear a knock on the door again.“Vladimir, are you sure you’re alright? I hear you talking to yourself in there…”Talking to yourself? Can he not hear this thing?“Yeah Uncle, I’m fine, just… shaving while on the phone!”You could cut that awkwardness with a knife.“…Well… alright. Just hurry up, I don’t like you being in there for too long!”“Will do Uncle… will do.”You hear him leave down the hallway, leaving you and this… thing to talk. Question is, what do you have to talk about?>Ask it its name.>Ask where it’s from.>Ask what it’s doing here.>Write in?
>>1608428I hope we aren't going to be surrendering ourselves entirely to the Symbiote. I like it when quests try to combine options when there is a heavily contested or tied vote. Maybe we could resign ourselves to listening to the voice in our head, but not lose ourselves completely to the creature?
>>1608515>Ask it its name."My name's Vladimir. What's yours?"
>>1608515>Ask it its name.>Ask where it’s from.>Ask what it’s doing here.>Write in?>Ask it what it wants with us.
>>1608515>What do you want from me?
>>1608515>>Ask what it’s doing here.
>>1608515>>Ask it its name.>Ask where it’s from.>Ask what it’s doing here.
>>1608518bo not completely but we will become sort of melded, hopefully disagree on very few things.he sounds reasonablemix this>>1608545with this>>1608519
>>1608545>>1608544>>1608541>>1608521>>1608519>>1608547Goddamn you wanna make me work, let's go. I enjoy a challenge.
>>1608470He's honestly in an easier spot than most with creating a new character.All True as to do is give the new Symbiote a feminine voice, a somewhat caring or nurturing personality, even if self serving because symbiosis, and anons will just do the rest with their waifu senses.>post your face when Spiderman quips about Vlad being a little too close to the alien he's hosting.
“I don’t understand, just… what are you?”“I am a Symbiote.”“No I know that, you said that already but…” You’re entirely at a loss for words… So instead you opt to just… leave the bathroom. You go back to your room and look up what day it is and luckily, it’s Saturday… usually you’d use this opportunity to catch up on some chapters of Jojo or maybe play some Stellaris but… you’ve a feeling that’s not going to be happening for the foreseeable future. All the while this weird eyed thing is just glancing at you, completely unblinking. Fuck it, got to start somewhere.“Alright… fine. My name is Vladimir, or Vlad for short… what’s yours?”“I have no name, Vladimir Vlad For Short… I am a symbiote.”You sigh.“Well… where are you from, at least?”“I was spawned from my father. He cast me out…”“Oh… well… I’m sorry about that.”“Do not be. It was not your fault.”You let silence reign for a few more seconds before speaking up, “So… what are you doing here? And what do you want from me?”“I am here because there was no one else… I needed to bond or else I would die. You were the nearest host.”Well that’s nice. So it chose you because you were convenient? GROWL“That sound means you need nourishment yes?”Spot on.>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.>Naw, stay here.>Maybe call Kirk via your Uncle’s phone and hang out with him?
>>1608560I could get behind this
>>1608653>head out to eat
>>1608653>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.
>>1608653>>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.We can talk while we do these things right? Multitasking.
>>1608653>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.>“I was spawned from my father. He cast me out…”Damn annoying fathers. Don't worry, eventually we'll become far more powerful than Venom. He was a fool to cast you away.
>>1608653>>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.Get a fucking case for it so it doesn't break again
>>1608653>>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.
>>1608653>Head out to eat, maybe get a new phone while you’re at it.>Maybe call Kirk via your Uncle’s phone and hang out with him?Can we call Kirk and tell him to meet us at a restaurant?
>>1608690As a matter of fact you can but it'd be super weird for him to just wait around while you got a new phone.
“You say you’re a Symbiote… does that mean you draw nourishment from me?”“It is a small amount but yes.”“Alright well...” You halt a moment, realizing you’re still covered head to toe in this… “suit”.“Hey, could you… I don’t know, shrink? I was thinking of going out to eat and getting another phone.”“I do not know what a ‘phone’ is, but I can alter my appearance.” It demonstrates this by shifting into some normal clothes. Hell it even gave you shoes! Huh. Oh well… gift horse and all that.You head on out the door, announcing to your Uncle you’re going out for a bite to eat. You can only imagine his befuddled face, as he’s NEVER seen you leave the house on a Saturday. Not since… well you’d rather not remember that. It’s down to Midtown to your local McDonalds! Upon entering you order yourself a classic Big Mac with a medium Coke and sit down. That is… until you feel the back of your head start to buzz. It’s like a static pulse through your nape, and it feels… off. Outside you hear sirens and sure enough an armored car rushes by traffic, followed by three police cruisers! You rush out side to see what’s going on and they seem to be speeding off into the distance.“Host. While you were unconscious… I looked in your memories. You used our strength to stop an undesirable. You were rewarded for your actions. I believe this it would be beneficial to do so on a larger scale.”“Excuse me?”“I am suggesting we stop the vehicle, and the undesirables within.”Well… shit that actually sounds like a pretty cool idea. Technically it’s right too, you did get free pizza out of stopping that mugger… though there’s certainly no guarantee you’ll be rewarded for this.>See what this thing can do to help. Stop the armored truck! Cause it’s the right thing to do! >Well, you never know, maybe the cops’ll take a liking to you! Free donuts! >Eeeeh, naw. You’ll let the boys in blue handle it.
>>1608767>See what this thing can do to help. Stop the armored truck! Cause it’s the right thing to do!Don't forget to put a suit!
>>1608767>See what this thing can do to help. Stop the armored truck! Cause it’s the right thing to do!
>>1608767>see what this thing can do
>>1608767>lets do it, you never know there may be a rewardlets go grey guard here, because if we are too "heroic" then if we decide we don't want to do something, the symbiote might mis construe it as evil, and be mad at us for breaking our code.
>>1608767>See what this thing can do to help. Stop the armored truck! Cause it’s the right thing to do!Make sure it covers our face first, though. Can't have the "undesirables" tracking us down.
>>1608777>>1608778>>1608779>>1608781Also, that being said, do you guys want to change from your default costume? >pic related here>>1608273Cause mind you you look a lot like Venom which could cause some issues with the authorities... and Spider Man.
>>1608792no lets not, after all we want to meet spidey.and lets be civil and stop stuff.also we wouldn't know about that stuff soooo, lets have fun
>>1608792Yeah, sure. Let's change from the default for now...Voting on a new wardrobe then?
>>1608792Could we be a.. white venom with hidden(like a xenomorph) eyes?Let's try to look a bit original
>>1608822Maybe pic related?Ignore file name, too, please.
but you don't want to be shot at? or meet Spidey? or guilt trip Spidey?but if not lets do this>>1608833andi get to crack some jokes, insults and puns
>>1608839Let's not be Spider-Man 2.0
>>1608838get rid of the gold spider, maybe a snake? or a bird. what eats spiders?
I've posted many costume ideas here. Lets change to one of those
>>1608843okay, then just insults?
>>1608860Yeah.Former loser who gets drunk off the power he now has.
>>1608845You did have some good ones. I do like the idea of some more color. No need to be another Venom or Spidey.
Eh, I'm cool either way.Symbiotes are rather simple design-wise, and to me that's part of the appeal.Just a color swap or removing the spider symbol would be enough.
Id like yellow detailing myself
>>1608870Cool, that seems possibleI just want to cause conflict for fun, to stretch our power
>>1608872I like this one.>>1607992
Alright so wardrobe change! Do you go with >>1608838 >>1608873these anons here (which we'll name A and B respectively)? Or do you choose from one of these links?#1 http://orig14.deviantart.net/c971/f/2014/253/3/4/symbiote_september_day_10__marvel_symbiotes_by_blacksuitchris-d7yl523.jpg#2 https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/35/77/d1/3577d1c57d56867f8aa73f9c2ea17f3c.png#3 http://img15.deviantart.net/16ba/i/2013/314/6/5/commission__toxin_by_johnbecaro-d6tq2k2.jpgYou would not BELIEVE how difficult it is to get a god Symbiote costume like goddamn.Other options are possible too, if they get enough backing.
>>1608901I vote for >>1607992
>>1608901I vote for option A
>>1608901>B, ditch the spider theme.Also, little Sym has got to brush up on human anatomy and physiology, the heart is supposed to slow down while asleep.He needs a few pointers.
>>1608901#2 but colors inversed and without spider logoseriously, why would we want a spider logo? we're not venom and we don't have a vendetta on spiderman
>>1607992I like this one. Looks gold to me. Voting for this one.
>>1608901Gotta go with #2
>>1608910Changing for #2
>People voting for #2>The suit that looks the least like a symbiote and just an alternate spiderman with black and white color palletAre you guys serious?
>>1608947And is pretty similar to the current costume in the original Symbiote Quest.
>>1608924>>1608931>>1608906Three votes for a gold suit >>1608910>>1608918Two for option A >>1608919Option B>>1608923>>1608934>>1608940and three votes for option #2 It's heated, it's VERY heated... gonna leave it for another 10 minutes and see if anyone changes their vote.>>1608947It IS another Spider Man. 2099 to be precise.
>>1604914I vote this too
>>1608953Are you stupid?
>>1608953You replied to OP's first post. Not to a suit.
Get some fucking variety in costume. We can be our own person here
>>1608959Nah, let's be Spider-Man #3,426 instead!
>>1608959You didn't reply to a post with a picture anon. Unless, after posting all those other ones you want to look like Venom.
>>1608951Fuck, changing to number 2
>>1608953Sorry I meant I vote gold
>>1608959or we could change everytime we go out.its retarded but I think a bit of stupid goes a long way.no>>1608953this does not count
Alright, gimme a second to recount but I'm fairly certain #2 wins it, if not tied with gold.
>>1608951Changing to gold.
How about we just make #2 Golden?
>>1608950>>1608951So people legit want to have the same costume as another Symbiote Quest, which in turn is just Spider Man 2099?Guys...Alright, if using other costumes is fair game then how about a male, somewhat bulkier, version of this?The hood is distinctive enough to set us apart no?
>>1608923>>1608934>>1608940>>1608962Option #2 >>1608906>>1608924>>1608931>>1608972>>1608965GoldNever mind, looks like I hallucinated.You guys okay with Gold?
>>1608974Still another spidey suit though.>>1608977I see a lack of gold there.
>>1608980I guess, we Beetle now boys.
>>1608980That's what the people voted for, isn't it?Go with gold.
>>1608977Honestly, I like your image but there are too many people and too many choices, and whether our suit is gold, black or purple does not make a whole lot of difference, so lets just fucking pick a suit and get over with it.
>>1608980Not really,too simple to my taste and i dont get why people want to be all gold like a statue
>>1608980What does a man with two penises say when the tailor asks if he dresses to the right or left? Yes.
>>1608982Nothing stopping it from having gold. Maybe make the arms and top gold while the rest is black?But it doesn't matter, voting's done I guess
>>1608977We're not gonna be Gwenom you cunt.
>>1608989Nope, it's a Golden tortoise beetle.They are quite pretty.
>>1608988Better than a black and whie palette swap of Spider-man 2099.
>>1608988And I don't want to just another spider suit mixed with anti-venom.
>>1608995Now that gold is settled, having a spidey logo would be fucking lame, so how about going with >>1608983 idea (although its a beetle, w/e) and changing our logo to pic related?
>>1608995>>1609003https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf3EuA5khZ8They also change color when disturbed too.Maybe it can be worked into the suit's thing?Camouflage ?
>>1609003Would be kinda funny, everyone underestimates the Gold Beetle. Until our symbiote hulks out and show's the maw.
>>1609007See! Now we are getting something different yet cool and not the same. I love this idea
>>1609003Sure, also, make the design less intricate, of course in a manner that is still recognizable.
I really don't care, can we just get on with it?
>>1609035Ya!The black one is quite amazing, just getting rid of the horns would be the cherry on top in my opinion.Thank you, anon.There's still a symbiote face there too.
>>1609030I'm enjoying the idea's that are coming out. Besides we're all waiting for QM to write anyways.>>1609035Nice! >>1609052Even not-entomologist anon here likes it.
>>1609035That's actually kinda cool dude! Get yourslf a drawfriend and you'll be good! Post incoming!
>>1609052no horns like this?
You could totally stop this actually…Just like you stopped that robber back at the pizza place! You could feel like a hero again! You could feel GREAT again! We could feel that way again.“Alright, but we need a disguise. Something that won’t have us looking like any known vigilantes or… well, ‘super villains’. To keep our face hidden.””I see the advantage of this. What would you suggest?“Maybe something… in yellow?”You finish the request and sure enough, the shirt the Symbiote had made for you turns a shade of gold before the v-neck turns liquid, crawling up your throat and covering your face. The sensation is still a bit unwelcomed though this time you don’t faint from the experience. Your new wardrobe consists of something… unique to say the least. You still kind of have the claw things on you but you suppose you can work those out sometime later. Now there’s just one problem…“So how’re we going to catch these guys?”“I have a method that would suit our needs… point your upper right appendage to the nearest tower.”Upper right appendage? Your right arm? You assume it means your arm. You do as instructed, and a tendril shoots from your wrist and lands on the wall of the nearest skyscraper! It forcefully YANKS you upward, pulling your whole body with it toward the skyscraper, flinging you upward! The world blurs for a minute before you land on the wall. You were on the ground a minute ago, and now you’re on the wall! Hell you barely had time to process that and your heart is now beating like an AK-47! “Your artery has increased its beating. Are you alright?”You don’t know how to answer that.“Yeah, just… need a second.”“We do not have a second. Reward awaits. Leap from the wall with your upper right appendage outward!”So a repeat. You do exactly that, pushing from the building with your legs and leaving a very visible indent in its side. Jesus your squats must be killer. In that moment, during the few second you’re up the in the air, you see everyone below you. Bystanders, just minding their own business, have to shield their eyes from the sun to catch a glimpse of you. You even see a few cell phone cameras taking pictures! You used to be down there… watching. If only everyone else was so lucky… too bad for them, this is all yours.>Cont.
>>1609080He's done it!
come on guys, it doesn't have to be that specific. lets just say that we're a shiny gold color with a scarab logo instead of spidey and continue the quest pls
>>1609092cry harder bitch baby
>>1609092Gotta hammer out the details, anon.
>>1609099Right on point here. Scarab needs to look good
>>1609080Ya, the legs make for quite the violent display (in a positive way, like the spider legs in the venom outfit.) already, in my opinion.The horns would probably subtract from the whole internal design.Who knows, I think it looks better, however, I doubt there would be much else to be improved here now.Many thanks.
Take note True, you're on to a great quest here. This much passion for what we look like could be an indicator
>>1609112I mean if someone fixed the watermark it would look better but im to lazy to do that shit
>>1609099>i want to over-obsess on tiny details that won't matter in the story/adventure/quest>let's not>"cry harder bitch baby"you sure you old enough to be here buddy?
>>1609128Trust me, I take all things from my player base into consideration. Hell you guys are one of the reasons I do this! Even if you are a bit... manic about certain topics.Love you freaks.post incoming.
>>1609130Seriously, fuck off
>>1609130Of course I am dont I look it?
>>1609130Fuck off, frog poster.
>>1609130I don't understand your problem here honestly. It's not like this discussion is taking anything away from the quest. We're just positing ideas about the costume, to reform it and make it different from Spidey and Venom.
okay important question, lethal or nonlethal tak downs? we have to establish this here.>>1609130>>1609139and you two knock it off>>1609142that isn't you, because if it is your a bit daft for putting your picture on here
Lets all be not be a bunch of cock gargling autists and enjoy the fucking post ok? Calm the holy fuck down
>>1609130I see your point, I think sometimes these little productive discussions are a good thing (if not overdone).There are quite a lot of ways a quest can be influenced, this one is just one of the many besides the traditional choices.Now we can safely move on.
>>1609147hello again. have you been lurking?>>1609148agreed
>>1609146Id say nonlethal. We dont have any reason to kill at the moment.
>>1609146Nonlethal, if only for the fact that we're a kid who doesn't seem all that bloodthirsty.
>>1609148>>1609139I did participate in it and it was me(with inspiration from another anon) who suggested the scarab logo, but now people are arguing arbitrary shit like the length of the legs on the logo, like holy shit how much of a fucking autist do you need to be? I'm just genuinely enjoying the quest and want to continue>>1609143>go to 4chan>complain about people posting frogs
>Cont.This.Is.AMAZING!"WOOOO!! HELL YES! NEW YORK METRO CAN EAT MY ASS!!"The city whizzes past you as you swing from building to building, up and down and left and right all over New York with a feeling of joy and elation you’ve never felt before. You’ve gotten a bit of a groove down on the whole swinging around thing and even done a few sweet flips! If you’d know letting an alien rent out your body with no sub letters would let you web sling –or rather, tendril sling-, you’d have done it a long time ago! You’ve followed the sound of the sirens and gun shots to 3rd avenue, and sure enough, there’s the chase going done right below you. “There they are!”“We shall lower ourself”You’re brought closer to the action and can make out there’s a masked man with a semi-automatic holding onto the door of the armored truck, occasionally taking pot shots at the police officers chasing them. The cops do their best to return fire but these guys clearly planned for a lot of resistance. Now, how do you want to do this?>Go balls to the wall, swing into the dude and into the back of the truck. >Take a safer way. Go to the wind shield and take out the driver.>Land atop the armored car and see if you can’t tear it open with your “claws”.
>>1609169>>Take a safer way. Go to the wind shield and take out the driver.

You decide to put these weird looking claws to use, see if they work! You give yourself one last boost from your tendril before landing atop the armored transport with a thunk. You raise your hand above your head, before bringing it down viciously, piercing the ceiling of the truck. You wrench the metal beast open and find that it’s full of bags, each stuffed to the brim with packs of dollar bills! Holy shit! You’ve upgraded from regular robbers to stopping bank robbers! This is great! Of course, ripping open a ceiling of reinforced steel does not go unnoticed, as the masked thug who was previously shooting at the cops has turned his attention to you. You can see it through his mask this guy is actually really freaken scared of the yellow monster that just tore an armored vehicle open like a tune can. Your nape is tingling! Danger! You move away from the hole you made before he brings his gun up to meet you, and opens fire! The bullets simply wiz by you and the second he stops you shoot a tendril at him and his weapon, which you hoist out from the back of the truck! He goes flying, screaming as he does before he and the tendril hit a street lamp, which the tendril sticks to and disconnects from your wrist. Shit did you just hogtie a man to a streetlight? Hell to the fuck yeah you did and it feels AWESOME! You slink inside and land on your feet amongst the pile of bags stuffed with money. Damn this is a good haul! “Host, what is this?”“This is money, it’s what we use to exchange things.”“Would this count as a reward?”… Actually now that you think about it… it kind of is. You doubt that anyone would miss a teeny brick, they could just say they lost it… besides these are all $100 bills, Big Ben Franklins! You look over to see a single brick’s got something like, 300 bills, 3000 dollars from one brick…But… should you?>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.>No one needs to find out. Think of the good it could do! You’re already stopping a robbery, this could just be a fine. >Who said you should take one? Take two, three, hell as many as you can without arousing suspicion!
>>1609298>>No one needs to find out. Think of the good it could do! You’re already stopping a robbery, this could just be a fine.Just a few hundred dollars for a new phone. Nothing more.Herooing is tough and pays bad.
>>1609298>>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.

>>1609298>>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.Rather not set a bad example to the superpowered baby.
>>1609298>No one needs to find out. Think of the good it could do! You’re already stopping a robbery, this could just be a fine. Phoneposting away from my wifi.
>>1609298>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.we stick with our moral. This behavior will escalate, especially with kid symbiote
>>1609298>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.Beside, the fame is enough of a reward fo now.
>>1609298>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.Do you really want to disappoint Uncle Anons?
>>1609298Changing to>>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out>>1609322Your argument seduced me.Think of the children symbiotes!
>>1609322This anon get's it. We're teaching our new symbiote right and wrong here.
>>1609298>No one needs to find out. Think of the good it could do! You’re already stopping a robbery, this could just be a fine. Who are we defending? Banks? PleaseGet your reward for a job well done
>>1609349Kid symbiote. We're teaching right and wrong, we can't fuck up.
>>1609315>>1609298i change my vote to this>No, it’s morally wrong and Uncle wouldn’t approve. No one would if they found out.
C'mon guys,are we going to be another spider-goodie two shoes?
>>1609356Nothing wrong with taking what you deserve from cunts who dont. Also superman-tier moral asswipes are boring as hell
>>1609363If it is a goddamn alien, you teach the goddamn alien.The fuck is so hard to get about this not being metagaming ?
>>1609339>>1609337>>1609331>>1609326>>1609322>>1609320>>1609309>>1609361You're good boys anons.>Writing
>>1609361i change my vote back
>>1609363How's that metagaming?This symbyote is asking us about rewards and other stuff like an innocent kid.
>>1609364Nah, just setting a good example, also all that money and gold is marked ten thousand ways til sunday. We tried using it without a fence we'd get thrown in jail so fat our head would spin.>>1609364>>1609365See above argument, we're REALLY tempted but the blowback would be nasty. now if some thugs had so unmarked stuff on em? Yoink.
>>1609371Why would we have that on our mind?
>>1609364We're not going to stupid. When the bank notice one of their gold brick is missing, they won't just shrug it off as "missing". And since all of the robbers will have been captured by now, who do you think they'd suspect?
>>1609379>>1609381Why would we know that we need to teach him anything?
>>1609386Naw it's not gold, it's just a regular stack of dollar bills.Sorry I shoulda phrased that better.
>>1609365Found the edgy villain poster guys!
>>1609391Because he's asking? He doesn't know any better. I mean also these bills being in sequence means they can be found out easily.
>>1609381>>1609386Indeed, there are a lot of people who can fuck our inexperienced ass up.>>1609391Cause he asked what that is, and the purpose for it, it has shit ideas about human physiology and it's a fuckin newborn.It shows he is mint fresh.
>>1609399And really, it's not all about the money. They are also endangering bystanders and shooting at cops. We're stopping bad guys doing bad things, not defending banks.
>>1609381This is some kid high on his new alien powers. He's even a teen. He should be doing some bad stuff and there's no reason as to why he would think about marked money or whats right or wrong when high on his power.
>>1609396>wanting variety in a cape quest makes you an edgy villain poster
>>1609418We can walk that path after Uncle get injured/dead
>>1609422We're not gonna be Peter Parker 2.0
>>1609418Hey man, you're the one using the edgy vernacular. You could have been reasonable about it.
>>1609425Nah we ill be more. Ill support all the Punisher decisions if that happened.Break a leg or all limbs as long as that fucker's alive
>>1609440I can back this, leave him "alive" but other than that? Fair game.
>>1609422>>1609418>>1609416It's still the first test run, relax.Nothing is set in stone, we are not Spidey 2.0 and we are most definitely not a complete murderer yet.Just a normal shut-in who has found powers.
>>1609425We're a kid who suddenly got an alien suit that talks and helps him fight crime. It's awesome.>>1609435I did post both those yes. What about it?
>>1609443Not even part of a murderer.
>>1609435Oh, just got it. Still, anon wasn't arguing for variety. Taking things from those who don't deserve it is dickish villain talk, and no one is saying they wanna be a boy scout. Just not being a theif.
Man you really feel that you should…But… No. You’re a better person than this. “No. Our reward comes later. Maybe much later and maybe never, but if we take this money we’ll be no better than these robbers. Hell, we’d be worse. We’d be like a rat, stealing from a bigger animal because we’re too much of a coward to get our own meal. We’re just going to have to wait for our reward.”“… this decision makes no sense. You did these people a service, as you did the first time… you were rewarded.”“And we will. Just not now.”“… fine.”The symbiote goes quite. You don’t know if you made it mad or if it’s simply confused but you hope to explain this in better detail sometime later. For now, you’ve got an armored car to stop.You hop out the hole you previously tore open and make your way to the driver’s seat. There’s two men left, both in sky masks. Must be go to attire for robbing banks. Once again you tear the roof off from it hinges and grab the passenger, before grabbing the driver next. You leap off the truck which slams into the corner of a nearby building! Oh, good, it’s just an ATM corner, no one’s hurt. Good.The cops finally catch up, and exit from their squad cars, guns drawn.“Put them down!” They shout. “Alright! No worries! Don’t shoot… I’m putting them down… slowly.”You deposit the robbers safely on the asphalt, and bring your hands back up. “Alright. You stay there.” You do as instructed and watch the cops do their job. It’s more clean-up now than anything else as YOU helped with the majority of the work! You smile underneath your disguise of gold. Those endorphin'll hit any minute now...You're snapped out of your high though, as one of the police officers from before comes over to speak to you.“Thanks for stopping them,” he says, “We’d been chasing them down but he couldn’t stop them without some serious injuries involved. You saved a lot of lives friend. What’s your name?”“Name?”“Yeah, your name. You costumed types always got one. Spider Man, Iron Man, the likes. You got one of those?”You’ll be honest you JUST started this. You’ve not given it ANY thought much less chosen a name. Jeez you gotta think on your feet. What is your name? You Alias? What will the City know you by?>Cure.>Golden Scarab. >Hype. >Rush.>Write in?
>>1609546>>1609523>>1609517Scarab >>1609515>>1609522Hype >>1609507>>1609514Golden Boy>>16095551 for CureHonestly surprised more people didn't choose Cure to fit the theme of single nouns and verbs.Oh well.>Writing.
>>1609567I just feel like Cure sounds too pretentious.Well, Golden Scarab is still showy as fuck, but at least it's not implying anything besides shiny bug.
You feel frozen within your own mind and go full autismo. What color are you right now? Gold. What’s your favorite bug? Scarabs. Scarabs are cool. “Golden Scarab.”The officer cocks a bit of an eye brow, as he seems to fail to see where the ‘Scarab’ part plays into your alias. Yeah your about as gold as a 16 year old after having met R. Kelly back stage but… you don’t exactly resemble any type of bug he’s ever seen. “Huh… kind of expected something else honestly.” So did you. He shrug and writes it off, “It’ll make a good story back at the station. ‘Giant golden bug tears through reinforced armor car’. Great for the dinner table.”Speaking of which, “Also, officer, what time is it?”“It’s,” he pulls out his watch from his wrist, “4:30.” Holy crap you’ve been out for 4 hours!? “Oh man, thank you so much, but I’ve really gotta go! Need to go meet someone!”“Hey, totally understand friend. Get out there.”You attempt to reenact the first time you slung from the ground and sure enough, the same tendrils you’ve been using come back, and aid in your ascent to the sky line. “Scarab?” Speaks the symbiote. “Yeah, it’s our name now… sorry.”“Do not be. I quite like it”You sling off back home.Today’s been a good day.We are the Golden Scarab. We feel great_____________________________And that’s this session all wrapped up folks! Be sure to follow me on twitter @TrueBelieverQM for the latest news and updates! I’ll stick around to answer any questions you may have and I would greatly appreciate some constructive criticism.
>>1609670>“Do not be. I quite like it”The fact we reference ourselves as we makes us happy!Symbiote is a cute, a cute!.
>>1609670Bretty good OP. Im curious about the symbiote though. Doesn't it have its own personality? Looks like a fill-in so far, though I understand that makes it a lot more interactive.
>>1609709This. I enjoy that we don't have a bad situation with our symbiote. So much of the bad stuff that happens with Venom is Peter freaking out and things kinda snowball. Also fucking over Brock didn't help.
>>1609719Seems like it's learning from us. They do partially feed off the emotions of the host. As well as chocolate, and brains...
>>1609719I plan to have it evolve slowly over time, as in the more time it spends talking and developing a relationship with you, the more you'll draw it out of its figurative 'shell'. There's a plot twist I have involving just that actually, which I plan to expand upon the next time you run into Venom.
>>1609736That's gonna be a shitshow and a half.
>>1609768Symmy is still a cute.Cuuuute!
>>1609787Of course. Venom just hates offspring, because Carnage. Fuck Carnage.
>>1609816Carnage had the unfortunate luck to attach itself to a man that out crazied venom and aws strong enough mentally to really fuck it up.
So if we're going with the golden scarab beetle theme, would beetle wings be cool?
>>1614168Why not? And maybe when we inevitably Toxin style hulk out, we get all tanky like a beetle too?
>>1614428I just think the wings would be a nice change of pace from the usual wall crawlin' and web slinging every other Symbiote and Spidey derivative does.
I really like the idea of superheroing while teaching right and wrong to what is powering us.Might as well stamp "Baby on Board" on too out backside.
>>1614660>I really like the idea of superheroing while teaching right and wrong to what is powering us.You ever read Symbiote Quest by Maleficar on QM?Basically that with the MC and the Toxin symbiote.
>>1614662I'll check it out. It on sup/tg/?
>>1614667It's moved to another site unfortunately, but he still runs some quests on 4chan from time to time.Still bretty gud though.>https://fiction.live/stories/Symbiote-Quest-2-0/nLFhaigrSfd8Kdqfr/home
>>1614676That one was pretty good. I feel like we've got something here though. We'll see where the QM takes the story.
>>1614686Yeah I'm definitely gonna try to participate in this quest as much as possible.Looks pretty damn good and I'm always up for symbiote stuff.
Just caught up with this.Interesting choices made so far. Wonder how far we'll be going with what we have here.
>>1625988Odds are, at some point the morality'll break, and we'll hit an ethical tipping point beginning the slow descent into villainy.
>>1626236If I had to guess, it'll involve either the Uncle or a friend. If the Uncle got whacked, we'd have a lot more problems too, like housing and food.Fury would be a VERY appropriate name at such a scenario.
