>>4404743-Dave Wright, Rick's other friend who accidentally got pierced with the arrow, and survived.
Dave slowly starts to get up.
He stumbles to the bathroom, looking for a bandage.
>>4404749(you get the role)
>>4404752(You are Dave.)
>>4404767He sees that his hand is healing at an unusual rate.
>>4404781>Take video of hand healing
What even is this
LURK MOAR OP. THEN WRITE. GOOD CONCEPT, BUT READERS LIKE BIG CHUNKY POSTS WITH CHOICES.
This ain't a quest. Lurk moar, read moar.
Don't give up QM. Your descriptions don't even have to by long. What are some options Dave has?
>>4404743>>4404781>>4404917I will help you get started! I think I know know who you are and you are a clever guy and can write.Dave eyes slowly creep open. He wonders what happened was even real. His friends, Rick and Jack, are with him, eagerly waiting for him to fully rise. The strange arrow is in Rick's hand. As they grabbed for his hand to help him back up you told him no need and got up with your good hand. Dave's a man now. They don't need to worry about him. Dave stumbles to the bathroom, looking for bandages and alcohol when he saw something very usual. The wound on his hand is healing super fast! He can see it closing now!What do?>Take video of the hand healing.>Ask your friends if this healing is real.>Ask your friends if they know what happened in this abandoned building and who owned it.>Write in.Dave Wright is now a Stand User, but what is his Stand?>Write in
>>4408316>Whip It>ask friends whats going on
>>4408321Awesome choice, but what's the Stand's power, what are it's stats (E-A) and what does Whip It look like?>Destructive Power (破壊力 Hakairyoku): Measures the Stand's strength and ability to cause destruction (physical injury or collateral environmental damage) in a given period of time.>Speed (スピード Supīdo): Measures the Stand's agility and reflexes as well as performance speed.>Range (射程距離 Shatei Kyori): Measures a compromise of the Stand's range of manifestation, range of ability influence, and spatial mobility.>Power Persistence (持続力 Jizoku-ryoku): Measures the duration of time that the Stand can actively maintain its ability. It can also be used in the sense of the time it takes before a special ability can be activated again, such as Star Platinum: The World's time stop.>Precision (精密動作性 Seimitsu Dōsa-sei): Measures the Stand's accuracy and range of influence/effect of their abilities to specified targets. Automatic type Stands are generally evaluated with Rank D or under with a few exceptions.>Development Potential (成長性 Seichō-sei): Measures the Stand's possible functions, utilization of its abilities and powers, and capacity to improve its overall capabilities. It decreases in rank as the user masters their Stand.The Stand with the most votes wins.
>>4408353BAABACSomeone make better stats than me...Stand’s got an energy dome hat. Has physique of David but looks like Devo
>>4408372The band not the stand from Stardust Crusaders
>>4408316So there is no durability category?>Stand name: Nightrain>Stand Appearance: A silver colored lighter that emits a blue flame. This lighter is invisible to non stand users completely, yet the flame itself is visible.>Stand Ability: The smoke emitted by the lighter's fire is a gas that the user is able to crystallize and solidify at will (including inside the body of an enemy stand user for example). The smoke itself and the crystallized version of it is a stand and thus is able to harm stands yet it also means if the smoke or crystals created by it were somehow damaged, you would take damage accordingly.Destructive Power: ARange: BPower Persistence: BPrecision: N/A (its a gas, it doesnt have precision)Developmental Potential: A
>>4408353BABCABThe stand looks like a Ninja that utilizes a Kusarigama. When hit by the Kusarigama the foe is inflicted with a poison. I tried to make a cool stand that somewhat fit with the name.
>>4409987So this is for Whip It? I like it!
>>4410329If it is Whip It will have both of the two Stand abilities.
>>4409224Persistence is the durability category. I like this one. Can be Rick's Stand. The visualizations in pic related and here >>4410329 are only suggestions. You guys have control of what Stands and weapons look like.And if we have Rick's Stand chosen, what will be Jack's stand?
>>4410338BBACBESomething like the stand of Hol Horse except this time we have a cowboy wielding the gun.
>>4410342Sounds neat. Any game for it?
>>4410342>>4410427What about Lonestar?
>>4410441support cool name
From what I can tell it looks like we get the ninja while our friends get the lighter and cowboy. Now this is looking good.
Dave stares down at the rabidly healing wound. His mind can't express the stimuli and it's getting to him. Body tense. Hands cold. Was the the paranormal world Rick proclaims so proudly to exist actually a thing? No. He can't jump to conclusions so quickly. Not for this. He was out cold after all. He should at least ask his friends if they can see what he does.Dave turns around and stumbles to Rick and Jack. He juts out his hand for he can't handle the anticipation of learning everything he knew being a lie. "Be honest guys. How is my hand doing." Rick calmly bends down to get a better look at the wound to examine it. Grabbing Dave's wrist at all angles. Jack's father was a combat medic so his silence startles to your core. He just looks like he's never seen a hand before. Rick stood up broke his silence "Well well well my friend." Rick's eyes stare deeply into Dave's soul. "Jack and I have a little dust in our eyes. Can you tell us what's going on?" with a cheesy, prideful smile. Dave knows what Rick is doing. He's trying to bait Dave into saying the supernatural is real after a childhood of making fun of him and telling humiliating stories to everyone you see or setting up fake haunted things like a bathroom stall or desk. You sometimes fought it out or he got revenge in some other form, but now after 12 years of denying his core beliefs he's ready to make Dave admit his own core beliefs were wrong."Um..." Dave dry swallows. He can't find away science could explain this one and he has no proof it's a prank. "It's just...healing really fast." He rubs his head."How fast?" Rick was lightening quick with that question. Jack's tapping his foot, growing inpatient. Dave shot back. "Fine! You win! After more of a decade, you win!""Win what? I still can't see." Jack kicked him."No one is here to even see you bozos aside from me!" Jack brusted out. "For real! Both of you retards can see how fast he's healing. One of us probably has some kind of superpower and you immediately find another way to fight?" He breaths heavily. "Superpower? It's the arrow that's supernatural. Not me." Dave said rigidity. He can't get his hopes up. "Rick. What do you think about the arrow?" Rick picked up the arrow from the table and and examined it. "I never heard about an arrow like this? The arrowhead is intricate and orate, but the rest, while well crafted, is pretty ordinary. Maybe it's an enchanted artifact that is meant to kill like normal unless it's an ally and it's heals them. To solve the friendly fire problem. The theory has holes in it because you got KO'd by the arrow, but maybe it loss magic over time. I was the one that dropped it on you after all. In my mind it's a lot more likely to be simply blessed, but why would you make a blessed arrowhead?"
>>4410686"I still think he's a freak." said Jack with is arms crossed. "Just because the arrow is fancy-like doesn't mean it's magic.""It could be this time, but your right. Dave, you could be like those soldiers from Jack's old man's war stories." He smile and pulled out a pocket knife and handed the arrow to Dave. "Want to test our theories out?"What do?>Cut self with knife.>Pierce Rick with the Stand arrow.>Research magic arrows online>Research magic soldiers online>Go to the famous Occult Library Rick likes.
>>4410686>>Pierce Rick with the Stand arrow.
>>4410691>Pierce Rick with the Stand arrow.
>>4410926>>4410701It is final then, Rick gets pierced with the stand arrow.
>>4412396You're back! I'm going to let you take over. Unless you want me to QM. It's yours and I'm QM'ing already so I'm not sad.
>>4412405nah man you be the QM.
>>4412420Are you sure? You can take over anytime.
Rick is serious. This isn't the first time he's something like this either. He likes to hurt himself to "prove to spirits he ain't a pussy." He even breaks bones for them. Thing is Dave didn't even lose that much blood and he still fainted. The arrow is defiantly magic. What if the arrow doesn't heal allies if you purposely attack them. Still, a little pick should be safe. With only the tiniest bit of hesitation he poked Rick's hand and immediately new cuts began to form into a bigger cut, spat out blood like a fucking fountain and healed back up like literally nothing happened at all. Jack is disappointed for Dave. Dave could tell. "Fascinating!" Said Rick in a trying to be CCC, but obviously elated tone. He grabbed his cellphone and unwrapped some bandages on his arm to reveal a gash. "August 15, 2007. Today I found an anomaly in an abandoned mall ..." "I'm not stabbing you in your wound with a cursed arrow! Fucking Steve-O wannabe!" He's gone to far this time. He could do more than just faint.Rick wrapping up his wound ponders something. "You're right, Dave. Sorry for scaring you. I'm acting too rash today. I have another theory. The arrow is for torture. You can do much more gruesome stuff to a POW for much longer."Dave didn't hear Rick's apology, or anything. All his mind could focus on was the funky looking ninja guy with a dome hat and a Kusarigama standing on top of a mannequin's head. Is this mall haunted and they angered this spirit. This ninja isn't alive. No! Just a mannequin. The more Dave looked at him the more the ninja's presence overwhelmed Dave's core. The ringing in his ears gets louder. The body temperature plummeting. A strange unknown energy rising. Is the ninja cursing him? The arrow was real and the ninja out for blood! Dave frantically reaches for his own knife, every inch closer to it feels like a heart attack. There's a feeling of overwhelming sorrow and loneliness in his heart that he didn't feel since his brother died. It's eating Dave up but, the ghost has to go down before it kills them all.
>>4414076"Rick! I was wrong about ghosts too! Turn around!" Smiling he said with his cellphone "I'm back. It seems another anomaly showed up...Oh fucking yes! I can see it! What's up, Ninja Spirit. I'm Ric-""Motherfucker! It's holding it's weapon." Dave's head felt a hard shock. "It's hurting me too and maybe cursing me!""Say no more!" Rick unleashed a blessed weeb dagger from is backpack. He was ready to slay the demon, but a golden steampunk lighter appeared into his left hand. "An other cursed artifact?" He chucked it onto the floor and the magic lighter mirror it's damage onto Rick. "The ninja is attack Jack spoke up. "Tell me what type of pain you guys are having. Dave's holding his head.""Migraines and a icepick headache right frontal lope, but worse.""Worse? This chuckle fuck's attacking Dave's brain!" He grabs his Springfield Armory XD45. "Rick! How do I make a ghost eat lead?""You can't do that shit now. There's a ritual for my daggers. Just run with Dave. It was my idea to grab the arrow."Dave stood up. "I'm staying too. He would just chase me. Jack can't see him because he didn't get stabbed." "Then stab me! If I'm going to fight with you guys I need to see the ghost!" Dave remember's Rick packs Holy water. Maybe it can bless your knifes. Gunshots would only draw more people to the demon. You also feel like the demon is only here for you and he won't leave you. You can feel a connection.What do?>Stab Jack>Don't stab himAnd?>Bless the knifes and attack>Surrender yourself>Try to build the connection to read his mind.>Run!>Run and force Rick and Jack to run!>Attack some other way.>Write in
>>4414079>stab jack>Try to build the connection to read his mind.
(Dave is going to stab Jack)Rick is trying to evoke Jesus and Arcangel Michael to banish the fucker and then he prays out loud and fiercely."Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil! May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen!"The connection is getting tighter. There's a feeling of existential dread Dave can't explain. The worst part it truly feels like his own emotions. He hears something from his psyche. "I wa--d -o lo-g." After those words he drops to the floor on his knees the migraines, icepick shock and even the arrow are preferable. His chest is tightens has the waves of oppression that vibrate what seems to be his soul along with more spikes. Dave tries to tell himself it's not real, but he knows it is. He looks up. The demon moved his head down. Dave wonders why he's still on the mannequin? His he mocking him?The ninja responds "N-. I'm --t h--e -- fi--t.""Then why the fuck are you attacking us!" Dave bursts out. He's torturing him and attacked Rick for playing with his toy. That's it!Rick throws a table the mannequin to knock it over and bolts forward to the demon ninja, but oh fuck, the ninja can fly so Rick throws blessed needles at the petty bitchboy and jumps onto a table to jump onto the demon. Ninjaboy dodged it all with haste and chained up Rick. The dagger dropped to the floor. Dave's heartrate rises. Not even the prayers worked. Jack screams "I have his fucking dagger! Stab me you faggot! I don't care about my life!" His eyes are bloodshot and his voice is primal. "Forget the arrow" And he pursues the ninja himself.Jack is going to die too? Without a thought he pokes his calve. The same blood foutain came and went just like last time. His almost trips over himself when he sees the demon for the first time. A friend like that doesn't deserve to die alone. Pushed through the psychic attack to stand, but he is without a weapon to fight with. Rick's backpack is chained too. Maybe the needles? But when is was about to run for a needle he felt a new presence. And heard a gun shooting. Was he going to live?A bullet wiz over his head straight at the foe. The ninja tries to dodge, but the bullet changed it's trajectory somehow and flew up into the chest cavity, but not even a second eve the same attack got reflected onto Dave and blood pours out like in anime.
>>4416037Dave screeches and clutches the chest. How?! Why does the monster want him? Revenge? Doesn't matter now. There's fucking two of them. The little coward called his cowboy friend because of Rick's prayers. Dave stands up with his knife and rubs his chest blood on it. Rick always said blood connects to your soul. Maybe enough to touch a demon. He points it to the cowboy. "In the name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ!" He coughs. "I codem you and the ninja to Hell and you shall stay there and not return!" "Great thinking using your blood!" Rick with his chained legs kicks the ninja legs and Dave fights the pain of the kick. The sliver steampunk lighter on the floor jets to Rick and opens up to reveal a small blue flame and heavy smoke to surround the ninja demon. An impolite green crystal circle forms out of the smoke to instantaneous grow out to knock back the bastard like a battery ram into the clothing racks. Rick thanks the Lord and Michael. Dave's body feels all that pain and flew towards the ninja on the ground. This psychic connection gives him an idea. Maybe the psychic connection is strong enough he can read it's private thoughts and avoid attacks. "Jack! Fight the cowboy demon! I'm gonna try something!" And Jack gave a thumbs up and did just that, but the monster dodges. Least he occupied.Focus! Focus on the pain the demon gave. The emotions are stronger. Focus! He feels himself going deeper into the ninja's mind. He can hear syllables. "This can only end in our death! We are one in the same! Your powers! Don't leave you friends behind like a bitch!"Dave shot back telepathically. "You attacked us because we touched your special toy. What kind of demented shithead tortures a man over an arrow?"The ninja flew forward in anger. The clothing racks break under him. "What do you think happens when someone denies their soul? And Rick did that to himself. His soul's a lighter." He points to the sliver lighter on the ground."A dinky lighter!?" Dave is unimpressed with the "lie". "The mannequin scarier! You're pathetic!" He throws a needle.He feels the ninja's irritation "Rick was the one that launched be back in the racks! With crystals! Look back! The cowboy isn't attacking Jack."He sees that the ninja maybe demon is telling the truth. The cowboy maybe demon isn't fighting. Just sliding out of the way. Jack also looks pained. Like a psychic attack."It's my fault." Dave said out loud. Of course it is. "There's a first time for everything." The psychic pain is leaving his body replaced with something like light ,but he can feel it. Rick was chanting the entire time and Jack is still trying to kill himself. His body is still fucked and pain still hurts."You have a name?" He's not going to him Dave."Dave Wright." Of course. "I know you don't like it." He posed on the ground. Rick is chanting louder. "Call me Whip It."
>>4416038The ninja smoothly bends down and punches Dave in places where the damage was. The Devo dome hats appeared and blew up like a mine. Just like that the wounds are gone.Both friends are in absolute shock and so is Dave, but in the first time in a long time he feels relief. "I have powers." Dave said silently."What did you guys do!?" Screamed Jack. He saw the booms."I knew those hats had esoteric meaning!" Rick's chains slid off. "Not even with all that happened that would make sense!" Dave yelled out. Jack said to him "Did you guys tame the demon!? How do we tame the gunslinger?!"Dave gets embarrassed and rubs is head. "Well, I am the demon, but not a demon. He's just my supernatural powers. He told be so." This is too weird. Very kickass at least."Powers? He's not a spirit guide or something. That was one of dad's theories." Jack stops to test the cowboy. "Hmmm. What this badboy?""I think you guys have powers like me. The arrow did it of course. I think it bought something out of us?" Rick jumps in trying to hide his giddiness. "A piece of us from another world perhaps." He tries to form the crystals again."Then what's my gift? He didn't do anything magical. Sorry for almost killing you, by the way. I will train to control him." Jack said in shame. "I launched his ninja into 5 racks of steel bars. Get over it. Sorry bro." "No! I panicked like a pussy and almost killed the three of us. You guys only attacked to protect me!" Rick punched him."Don't ever call yourself a pussy." Jack punched him too."Don't sweat it. I thought he was evil too." Jack is calm now.Dave simply said "Thank you." He see Jack ponder something."About Rick. I saw some crystals and smoke, but not a ghost. Does he have one?" Dave snickers. "Rick's soul is a lighter."Jack bursts out laughing and Dave join in. "Are you fucking for real?! Like that little thing on the floor?! We get movie and anime action heroes, but his soul's something you buy at the fucking gas station and wicca shop?! Does God hate you?!" "It's only in first form. There's no way it's only a lighter." Rick blushes, runs to grab the lighter and went to the wall. He closes his eyes. The smoke fills the area. You see a green aura surround him "Nightrain!" A few formations that looked like missiles not rekt'd the metal wall, but the part of the floor and ceiling in the next shop. "Can you clowns shoot missiles?" He said with menace. "I don't even know what my power is?! He's a cowboy so it has to be great. Is Nightrain it's name?""How did you know you could do that?" said Dave."Well?" He smiles proudly. "I have been studying and meditating for years. Nightrain just came to my head and I wanted to destroy the wall and scare ya so my soul formed into the badass overkill shit you just saw." He laughs himself.Dave is glad he doesn't have to fear death right now, but this shit is so surreal!
>>4416039What do? >Train with friends>Try to go research online>Try to blow up a wall>Eat out and try to talk it over>Go to that famous occult library>Write in>What should they wear?
>>4416042>Go to that famous occult library>What should they wearNot too sure on this one. Jack should definitely lean into western vibes and have the look of a western movie's main protagonist and Dave could have his clothes have some ninja thematic? (black clothes and a scar for example). Got nothing for Rick, he definitely feels like the kind of person who would wear the weird shit you see in JoJos though. Can never go wrong making them stand out in appearance.
>>4416084>scarI meant to say scarf. I made a dumb typo
>>4416084supportLet them lean into the themes of their stands
The ninja who named himself Whip It officially named Dave Whip It too. The lighter is named Nightrain. Why do these creatures want to be named after songs? Why do supernatural powers become ghosts for that matter? Rick said they could be them from another world which goes in line with many-worlds interpretation. Even though these all make since to him there's an itch telling him he's wrong. It's just how he is and it's enough to know their function. He needs to stop over-thinking everything. It's how he got everyone into this mess and feels heavy just remembering it. His ghost is gone for now, but he can see him in his mind's eye. Dave feels comfort in the fact he likes himself enough to control a dangerous part of himself. Much better what he was before. Maybe it's time to love himself again? The pass in the pass and can't change he's done. He's ready! Even if he fails today he will keep going until he dies looking at his reflection in the river!Dave stomps forward to a broken floor mirror to push to the ground and while channeling the essence of Narcissus, kneels over the mirror and slams his hands on to it to fill is soul with pride! "IlovemyselfilovemyselfIlovemyselfIlovemyself!" Dave chants like a cult master those three words ad nauseam while thinking about the stuff that is awesome about him. Verbal, audio, visual and physical strategies for his metamorphosis. Nothing from Heaven or Hell will stop him. The intensely of his earnestness brings out a bright red aura to match the heartrate which sounds like hammering in Dave's head. "Fuck you, self-disgust! Cocksucker! I love myself!" Whip It slid out of Dave to punch the wall and the energy dome hats slaughter that wall into obviation. The chains on his heart start to crumble into dust. He doesn't need to look up. Whip It's eyes gave him everything and it was beautiful. He's strong. He always was. It's what his friend saw in him. "I and Dave Wright and I don't need to change!" he screams jumping up with is passion. Both his friend strut forward."A monster man like me! Excellent!" Rick fist bumps Dave."You really were bad enough to obliterate a wall on your first try. Nice! Now excuse me. I'm going to stay here until I know my power and make a third hole. Not gonna let you guys leave me behind. Go do whatever. I don't have class tomorrow morning." The tone of Jack's voice is spirited and has heat."Dude, I actually know what it is." Said Dave.James' eyes lit up. "Really, man! Did the ninja tell ya?"
>>4418219"The bullet he shot was dodged at first, but the bullet's trajectory was changed. Like an aim-bot.""An aim-bot power? I can dig that. Simple and effective."He mimics Rick's movements from before with his normal gun to a T after years of practicing with action heroes. His eyes look like he's trying to melt the wall will them. A neon blue aura appears "Time to change fate! Lonestar!" Another loud gun shot! The fate changing bullet was able to pierce a hole in the wall to the next room, but of course, the hole wasn't as big. This may because he's new. He's pretty down about it."I saw Rick used a music name, but I didn't hear anything so I thought of something on the fly. Whad ya think?" He smiles with a confidence that the name and fate thing wouldn't result in automatic laughter. "Why are you laughing? It's beautiful name! I got it right it's time!" Jack stomps on the ground in pride destitution. "Bro! What the fuck you thought was going to happen? If Rick laughs your corny name you're fucked." Dave tries to calm himself to suggest going to the occult library, but Jack launched another attack onto the floor around him with several bullets and then switched to the poor wall to shoot five bullets in rapid succession in star formation and another star behind it. The first set made a big hole and the second star's bullets flew into the hole to weaken the wall from the inside before bursting out to the next store with the wall breaking behind them. All while screaming and cussing like a demon seeing God.He turns around swiftly and joyfully says "This is what happen's when you stomp on a man's pride." SKIP DRIVE LA'S TRAFFIC IS A FUCKOnce They got there after a half hour traffic jam where 4 people died, Dave see's a giant ass a grecco roman public library that looks like someone's mansion and saw a matching castle on a hill. Inside wasn't scary at all and a comfy as fuck old English styled not scary place where they have an evil magic section. Apparently it's here to keep it out of the hands of cults.(This shit is based on a real public library in LA. WTF) What do?>Read about spirits>Read about psychokinesis>Read about evil magic>Ask the librarian what is up with you guys>Write in
