While this certainly is an amazing idea, being arrested for public nudity would mean you'd never get that slurpee, and you simply cannot allow that to happen. Also dying from jumping through the window is also out of the question.

you go down the shady unlit path with great haste.
You've been down this path countless times during the day, but everything feels much different at night. It feels like you're being watched.

You really want that slurpee, so you push these thoughts aside, and continue walking down the shady path.

After a few minutes, you encounter a man.
He's unnaturally tall, and is staring into the moon.

"A quiet night, is it not? he asks aloud.
He turns to look at you, "Though it appears I am not the only one awake at this liminal hour.
"I am curious, traveler, what sort of quest brings you to this desolate path?

It feels as though this man can see right into your soul.

You attempt to push past the man, but he grabs your arm before you can react.

he hisses at you, "Watch yourself, traveler. It would be wise of you to treat that which you do not understand with a bit more respect."

You see a rage well up inside him, and his grab tightens. It seemed like he may strike you, but he takes control of himself and calms down.

"You are much too eager to surrender your intentions, traveler. It would be smart to watch your words in these parts, for strange creatures lurk here.

Sufficiently spooked by this encounter, you continue along the path with a brisk pace.
You don't want to be here any longer than you have to.

After a few more minutes of walking, you encounter a large chasm.
The chasm has collapsed a nearby house, splitting it in half and revealing its insides.
Inside the chasm is a strange creature. The creature does not say anything, it simply sits there smiling at you.

In this state you might be able to get there, but the bike has to stay. You're way too exhausted and simply in too much pain to use or drag it.

But, why do you even want to continue this journey? Is it worth risking your life for this slurpee? Why do you want it so bad? Is this even the same town you live in? Why is is so full of dangers?

Ok, those last two are good questions, but questioning the slurpee is unacceptable! Pull out the stinger and look around for something to patch up the wound. If there's nothing around, I guess tie your shirt around it?
No. 975054 ID: e51896

>>975051 i dont think pulling the stinger is a good idea. As far as stab wounds go, if you have something sharp like a knife in you, you gotta keep it in as it is acting as a plug to keep most of the blood in.

We might need a doc to treat the internal bleeding
No. 975068 ID: 19da02

If the stinger isn't very deep, then pull it out. if it's deep, leave it in. Tear off a strip of shirt if you can and use that as a makeshift bandage until you find something better. My vote is to go to the Wal Mart in a Bad Neighborhood and try to get some bandages or something, then past the lake and to the 7/11
No. 975086 ID: e30795

Don't panic, but you've probably caught the crazies from that stinger. Aggressively subdue any voices that try to deter you from the slurpee. I second making the Walmart in a Bad Neighborhood our target, there'll be plenty of medical supplies and plenty of people with knowledge in fixing puncture wounds.

holy crap, this timeline looks dark as heck.
You definitely change your mind about pulling the trigger.
You aim at something on the screen instead.

... You can't pull the trigger.
You're still looking through your mind's eye!
"uh... hey, you alright? Pull the trigger already."

You try to pull the trigger. You can't.
You try to speak. You can't.
You try to move at all. You can't.

You feel as if a powerful force is watching you, and you're rooted to the spot in fear.

You feel something pulling at you through your mind's eye. You can feel as if you are slipping right of your own body and into a bottomless pit.

In just a few seconds you'll have been dragged through the threshold.

Guess we'll die then.

Actually, idea: think as hard as you can about a slurpee to combat that fear, then if you can talk again, tell the little guy to shoot your mind's eye as quick as he can!


But how did those guys know our name?

the only person we told our name to was... the bus driver. damn it. I wonder if he betrayed you because we lost his bike to some hooligans, and failed to report his stolen bike.

stolen bus, not stolen bike.

You put all of your willpower to muster out a single sentence.
Shoot... The... Minds... Eye!

The kid looks at you confused for a moment, but then it clicks.
"You fool! You tried to shoot the past, didn't you?! Did you really think you were the first to try this??". The kid takes aim, and blinds your minds eye.

Get it open.

You are a little gnome boy. You have been stuck in this arcade for 2 weeks now.

The man that played the lightgun game with you is lying on the floor unconscious.

"Oh mannnnn,, this is baaaddd"

Check the first aid kit for a defibrillator. If you attach it to his temples, it should wake him up.

Draw on his face.

Find his shadow. He might know what to do. You might want to give his shadow some of this man's quarters as well.
No. 982597 ID: 10c07d

Definitely check the first aid kit for something to help

Before you take any action, you decide to look around for anything that can help. Eventually you stumble upon a person that looks exactly like the unconscious guy. maybe they're related?

the man mutters to himself ,"ugh i don't feel so good... something feels wrong."
No. 982626 ID: b1b4f3

Tell him a guy that looks like him passed out after trying to shoot the past.
No. 982630 ID: 3fbd84

Maybe the shadow man could use the syringe if he's feeling sick? Ask him if he knows the man who fell unconscious.
No. 982634 ID: 12b116

See if the shadow will stand in the appropriate shadow position in relation to your new pal's carcass and see if that helps.

cool. New friend. tell him that you cant wait to play shadow puppets with him someday.

Take your new shadow to your unconscious player 2, and ask what your new shadow has in his shadow first aid kit that may help.

Also recall where your old shadow went awhile ago.

Does shadow have a mind's eye too? If so, warn him to keep it closed.
No. 983144 ID: 12b116

Go check on your original friend and see if shadow can help at all.
