Rider or CC, and bring Rex with ya. I have an idea. If Max is looking to get stronger by killing demons, we should probably ask a Myriad if she knows of any kind of mana enhancement thing that can power up Cat or something wherever she came from (she should, it's whatever Caesar injected our rider with that almost turned her demon, and whatever stuff did that to HH)

If Rider is not in the mood for us, we'll see CC instead and ask her.

We may not get to go to Wano, but we can go to Fluxtopa while Max is distracted.

You can’t help it anymore, you need to see RIDER and make sure she’s happy because all you want is for her to be happy and maybe play FETCH with you and give you a good head pat now and then.

Remy: Take me to my RIDER, insect!
Rex: Look buddy I just did you a big favor and the Rex mobile needs to get off the KAIJU station. She’s in the rabbit room, okay? Still sleeping from what I can tell.

You drop the lone cockroach on the ground and it scurries away. Okay, the KEY is to be very polite and not bothersome to RIDER so she doesn’t order you to leave because that would break both of your hearts.

You tiptoe to the room VV shares with her clone and her sister, who propositioned you once which was extremely UNCOMFORTABLE. Luckily, Andrea doesn’t sleep and therefore doesn’t make much use of the bedroom so you’re probably safe.

RIDER is lying on her bed. If her eyes weren’t half-open, you’d think she was asleep. What’s your approach method?

>Quietly walk up and put head on bed
You squeeze through the door and kneel in front of RIDER, resting your chin on the small piece of bare mattress. She sighs and reaches a hand around to pet you. You give her your best, most adorable eyes.

Myriad: I’m glad you still want to see me.
Myriad: Normal and Guy haven’t stopped to talk in ages. Guess they’ve found better KIN to spend their time with.
Myriad: That or they don’t want me asking for the MCD back.

She shuts her eyes but her hand keeps moving, stroking you scaly snout.

Myriad: I’m USELESS. Set has me benched since CC can be all the ANGEL protection they need, Normal and Guy are independent, and at the end of the day I’m just a normal KIN with basically no POWERS.
Myriad: I’d die to free up a slot but I can’t even do THAT.

You whimper in protest. You don’t like the way your RIDER is talking.

Myriad: You don’t even genuinely like me, you were MADE to like me. Why do I even…

She withdraws her hand and turns around so her back is to you.

No! No! What is wrong with RIDER?

I like the idea of bringing her to Isabella, she worked hard on that relationship, dangit! She's put in a lot of effort into others, you've watched her care about others a bunch, You let Isabella cry her heart out to you, I'm sure that she can let you do the same, drag her outta bed!

Alternatively I was gonna suggest biting her or growling when she says that you dont genuinely care because who cares about that, you made the conscious decision to come see her cause even if it's artificial you do care!
No. 1042331 ID: 9e7f25

YES kinda. Take her to Isabella, Willimina, or cat. Or bring one or more here. We must show her the error of this line of thinking. As while mistakes had been made, the largest of which being through a lack of information, I believe she can be shown many of her actions have done great good.

She showed Isabella that the death of the hadlees wasn't her fault, relieving the grief that drove her nearly insane for years. And I would be very very surprised if cat or at least Willimina wasn't appreciative of the fact that she ,when told noone was going to, went out of her way and fought and was killed by her super powerful, crazy, incestuous brother to save her from the fate of being his trade wife mind slave.

>Get her out of bed and bring her to Isabella
It won’t do RIDER any good to stay in bed and mope. She needs to see her GIRLFRIEND and all the other people she’s helped so she can feel better about herself! You reach over the bed and gently bite and pull the hem of RIDER’s borrowed shirt.

Myriad: Go AWAY Remy.

You whine with frustration, but you can’t bring yourself to disobey a direct ORDER. After making a few more pathetic noises you leave with your tails between your legs. Oh to see RIDER so miserable is TORTURE.

If you can’t bring RIDER to the people you’ll need to bring the people to RIDER. Who do you target first?

A. Willamina
B. Isabella
C. Normal and Guy

B. Isabella's so sweet. I'm sure she'll have many sweet words to say, maybe even bring her stepsister herself.

I worry that normal has gotten a bit more indifferent toward VV. Guy seems like he like he still likes her plenty though.
No. 1042463 ID: e51896

I feel Izzy is the best to make Myriad feel better, BUT we suggested for her to give blacksmithing a try as a hobby. Best leave her to it on her own for now and not bother her.

Willamina might be able to relate to Myriad after her own trauma after that fire she was in. She could give Myriad some tough love, maybe show her some cooking show with that lion Caesar which gave her confidence, though im not sure if she can help much as she doesnt know VV all that well if she's been hiding in her room all month.

Normal and Guy might be willing, tho as she said, they seem to be independent now... im not sure why they never visited Myriad though. Could Set be forbidding them to see her?

My vote is Willamina. She could set Myriad straight maybe.

You weren’t there, but you’ve heard the tales of how RIDER introduced the wonders of RATIONAL THOUGHT to Guy and Normal and then saved them from their evil professor. It’s just like RIDER to be considerate and sane which is why her current FUNK is jarring. The ANGELS will be able to remind her of how much she helped them!

Hm, at this hour there’s a chance they’re somewhere in the lower levels of the DUNGEON, blasting the poor retired MONSTERS, but it’s much more likely that they’re outside. You take the stump staircase to the great OUTDOORS once more.

>Random encounter (6 possibilities): Aeglos
You see the VEGGIE-KIN with a big flower for a face mourning at the grave of MAPLE, but don’t have time to offer him a mushroom. It’s nice to dwell on the memory of your first KILL though, and the taste of celery follows you as you search every hidden nook in the FOREST for the FALLEN.

Eventually you find the two with a vaguely familiar kobold lying in a nest of old blankets, no doubt salvaged from the town. There’s a remarkable lack of nudity.

Normal: I don’t know, it was just so WEIRD. Everything was really wet and she kept saying HORNY stuff which is usually fine but I didn’t like it when she said it.
Fivin: Did it bother you that she’s VV’s sister?
Guy: They’re nothing alike. I didn’t mind.
Normal: At least she had MUSCLES. Only redeeming quality.

You let out a deep BORF to make yourself known. Fivin sits up and looks around in alarm. Guy waves you over lazily.

Guy: Hi Remy. We had sex with Andrea yesterday and we’re having a SOCRATIC DIALOGUE about it.
Remy: Mrngh.
Guy: I mean, I thought it was fine. Eh, 7 out of 10.
Normal: 3 out of 10! Not worth it at all and now I’m mad Guy liked it so much.
Fivin: Maybe you’re gay like me and don’t want to have SEX with WOMEN.
Normal: I thought you liked that one DOG lady. Isabella’s mom.
Fivin: W-well I do but she’s really the only lady and it’s more like a CRUSH, I don’t think we’ll ever do it.

>Tell them RIDER is sad
Of the handful of ORGANISMS you can talk to, Normal and Guy are in the bottom two. Working together, they can piece together your general vibes due to their consumption of one of your CREATOR’s arms.

Remy: Wak! Wak wak.
Guy: What is it boy? Did someone fall down a well?
Normal: Hey, don’t change the subject! We were having an argument.
Guy: Ugh, it’s fine that you didn’t like FUCKING Andrea, but it’s not my problem.
Fivin: Fellas, fellas–
Guy: C’mon Normal, help me out, this feels important. I think something’s wrong with Myriad.
Normal: If Andrea was a 7 out of 10 what am I?
Guy: Well when you’re being a bratty little turd, 0 out of 10.

You’d blame Set for this but apparently her BRAIN BOOST doesn’t work on these two. This is the pure product of a month of unchecked socialization and latent ANGEL pettiness.

A. Try to resolve Normal and Guy’s domestic problems
B. Settle for Guy and drag him to RIDER
No. 1042565 ID: e51896

A. Can't let them see Myriad when they're in a bad mood. So let's make Mizz Es proud with math!

Write a 5 on the dirt. It's between Guy's rating of 7 and Normal's rating of 3. There, problem solved!

Not actually sure if math tho, but we be a dumb Kaiju, cut Remy some slack, yo!.
No. 1042566 ID: 629f2e

A, try to help them with this, because Myriad isn't in a state where she can resolve their argument for them.

Rip Fivin's clothes off and get them both to rank him. If Fivin's guess is right, then Normal might rank him decently high. Or maybe not, guys come in a wide range and Fivin may not be his flavor. Either way, use that second go at ranking to get them both talking about their tastes. As long as they stay on the topic, eventually they should (hopefully) reach the simple conclusion that they have different interests but still do like one another.
No. 1042567 ID: e51896

Oh wait, we don't have to write a 5, they can understand our general vibes and get what we are trying to say.

We can still write a 5, or just draw 5 tally marks with a shitty picture of Andrea on the dirt tho if we want, though not necessary probably.

>A, rip off Fivin’s clothes as a distraction
The FALLEN need to stop bickering and work out some of their energy. You seize Fivin’s skirt and tear it away, revealing scaly skin and a small DICK. Golly what are they making clothes out of these days, paper?

Fivin: Eeeep!

Seeing Normal’s eyes on him, he takes a deep breath and strikes a provocative pose.

Fivin: Forget about Andrea, gentlemen. How about you take me for a ride instead?

You technically existed in CREATOR’s dream world for many YEARS before being given a physical form, so you’d consider yourself an adult.

Is not something you can experience. Everyone else seems to like it, but you have no instincts for REPRODUCTION and would much rather knock over a carefully stacked arrangement of cans. It doesn’t help that you’re covered in spikes and hard, uncomfortable knobs.

After Guy and Normal have thoroughly exhausted the kobold, you send them thoughts of open COMMUNICATION and conflict resolution.

Normal: …Guy, sorry, I was being jealous. I just thought since we do everything together and agree on most stuff that we should feel the same about Andrea.
Guy: S’okay. We’re different, you know, even though we’re both ANGELS.
Normal: You’re a lot smarter than me and now that you’re level 3 you don’t even need me to protect you.
Guy: Sure, but I still want to spend time with my BOYFRIEND because I LIKE him.
Normal: Aww, let’s go help Myriad. What was the problem again?

You escort the lads, including the still naked Fivin, back to the base, doing your best to convey the horror of seeing RIDER so despondent and reproaching Normal and Guy for not visiting earlier.

Guy: Oh, I guess I didn’t want her asking for the MCD back because then I’d feel BAD that I kept it.
Guy: But also it’s mine now and I’m not giving it up.
Normal: And I guess we’ve just been busy and haven’t seen her around? I thought she was still mad at me for the STAN stuff so she was avoiding us.
Guy: She’s avoiding us cause she’s avoiding everyone, sounds like.

RIDER is still in bed and you can’t bring yourself to go into the room, so you wait outside while Guy and Normal chat with her. Fivin excuses himself to go find some clothes while you pace impatiently.

Finally the ANGELS emerge.

Normal: I think we made her feel a little better, thanks for telling us Remy.
Guy: We’ll try to visit her every few days from now on!

The scarred woman is the perfect target. RIDER took a risk and saved her from a horrible FATE so Willamina should be very grateful. She’s probably either getting food, training, or spending time with Cat and the TINKERS. You’ll check those locations in that order.

>Random Willamina location selected
>Cafeteria check, five individuals
You see Xana, who’s a TINKER, that chatty HEALER Kazu, Toni the tiger who you’ve caught calling it FLUXTOPIA instead of FLUXTOPA like all the other people here, the zappy mouse Shocker, and Iraphena sharing a meal mostly consisting of vegetables grown from the other levels of the DUNGEON. The little meat is being hoarded by the ELF. No Willamina, though you take a moment to check in with Iraphena.

Iraphena: I had a terrible hangover this morning but I didn’t choke on vomit and die in my sleep, so thanks I guess. You’re saying you got the message to Cat? Good, that gives me time to HECKLE Rupert for more booze.

Do you want to talk to anyone else here or move on?
No. 1042665 ID: c7128c

Ehhh, let Iraphena know Myriad's gf Izzy wanted to cuddle with her yesterday night, but you spent time with her instead so she can rest up, and if she wants, maybe she can look for her at some point when she's not busy probably trying out blacksmithing or after we get her to try to cheer up Myriad (when we get to it.)

Spending time with an old friend like Izzy might keep her from drinking excessively and make her happy at least a little bit.

Otherwise, lets check the next area for Willie

Iraphena: Damn, I missed out on some sweet pooch ass. I’ll invite her over for some drinks and gossip TONIGHT.

>Pounce on Toni
First you ignore the poor guy when he tries to give you a muffin this MORNING, now you want to tackle him? It’s one thing to think the KIN here are annoying, another to be the annoying one. Instead you submit yourself to head pats.

Iraphena scowls at you, but silently agrees to act as your translator.

Iraphena: Hey Xana, could you throw something together that would help Remy talk without having to bother me or Rex?
Xana: Ah, I don’t know, we got news this morning that we need to get the ANTI-BARRIER ready, all the COMBAT equipment stable, and our field crew MOBILIZED in a couple days! I can help after that but we’re all in crunch mode.
Kazu: I got told too, since Cannie left I’m the only one with a HEALING POWER and I’ll probably be on the TEAM. Cat and Set are going to decide who’s going to fight the DEMON GENERAL while the rest of us stay here and defend the BASE.

Kazu continues to ramble with his mouth full. You wander away towards the STAIRCASE to the second level.

You skip right past the ROYAL GARDEN to the fountain whose center leads to the next floor. As you travel through the damp, dimly lit tunnel (for ambience, no doubt), you pick up the sound of the clashing of swords.

You emerge in the dirt arena of the massive COLOSSEUM, sheer wood walls giving way to the spectators, a horde of lifeless SKELETONS. Nipha and Set are sparring while Andrea does push-ups. Eugh, Set hates RIDER and Andrea makes you uncomfortable, not your ideal group of people. Willamina is again absent. Rotten luck on your part.

Nah. Whatever you can get from Set won’t be worth the harassment. You turn around and take the long walk back to the main floor. You’re a little worried since Jack said she’d get BOSS involved if the DREAMS continue, but you keep seeing COOL stuff so maybe it’s still worth it.

Between Rudy, Mint, Rupert, and Xana, the large room for the TINKERS is overflowing with random PROJECTS of all kinds. You spot Rupert’s famous STILL in the corner, a mass of computer monitors running code and scrolling through furry porn, the hulking block of metal you suspect is the ANTI-BARRIER, and a haphazard pile of gadgets.

You see Xana, returned from lunch, Rudy the jetpack wielder, Cat, Mint who has also propositioned you, Willamina, and even Isabella! The scarred woman is cooling some of the larger machines while Isabella heats a glob of glass at Mint’s direction. You walk up to Cat and gently headbutt him to get his ATTENTION. Rex gives a mental sigh but opens the TELEPATHIC connection.

Cat: Hi again Remy! Thanks for the tip earlier though next time if you don’t mind waiting outside–
Remy: I require Willamina and Isabella to help RIDER! Xana and Kazu the sole HEALER informed me that there is much work to be done, but this should only take an HOUR.
Cat: I knew Kazu would blab, and he’s not the only healer we still technically have GRUK even though he won’t FIGHT, Trey’s death hit the poor guy really hard. Sure, you can borrow Willamina and Isabella once they finish what they’re doing.

You find a bare bit of floor next to Cat to sit and stifle a yawn. Almost time for your afternoon NAP. Rudy’s shiny glasses flash in your direction and Mint licks her lips at you, so you’re probably going to have to dodge some ANNOYANCES. What do you talk about with Cat?

>Ask him his opinion about your link with Jack Knight
You explain the situation in a bit more detail, including the information that Jack is somewhere other than FAUNUS but still has contact with BOSS.

Cat: Hm, well you’re not coming with us so I don’t see how it can do much HARM, as long as it's not slowly driving you insane or something. If we keep CC with the STRIKE TEAM and VV here then BOSS can’t randomly KILL us and honestly that’s what I’m most worried about. He seems like a loose CANNON for an ANGEL.
Cat: Jack sounds okay, the MCD stuff was kind of SKETCHY but in the end she didn’t cause any TROUBLE, so maybe try to keep her happy?

>Rudy dodge check: SUCCESS
You hear Rudy sneaking behind you and you whack him with your tails before he can strap any ROCKET BOOTS to your paws.

>Ask to be AWAKENED
This is a marvelous idea!

Cat: Where in FAUNUS did you learn to say that? Rex did you teach him that?
Remy: Help me defend the BASE by giving me a POWER!

Cat touches your shoulder for a moment and FROWNS.

Cat: Okay, so I’ve had my fair share of AWAKENING non-KIN, like Rex and all of Juniper’s ANIMALS.
Cat: But Rex is small and Juniper has solid CONTROL of all her wildlife, you’re a bit. Well.
Cat: Look, the only POWER I’m seeing for you is SIZE MANIPULATION, and I don’t want a repeat of the KAIJU incident. Also, people would be really freaked out and you’ve noticed how we don’t have a THERAPIST around here.

You grumble, but admit the DEMON has a point. There’s plenty of PTSD about giant MONSTERS already.

>Mint dodge check: SUCCESS
Not today, perverts. Mint sidles over to grope you and you firmly headbutt her in RETALIATION, knocking her into a pile of fresh printed CLOTHES.

Mint: Ribs, fuck, ow.
Cat: You kind of deserved that. Go find Kazu.

Mint wheezes and staggers away, clutching her chest. Threats neutralized, you continue waiting for Isabella and Willamina.

After what feels like hours the two women get a break, and you explain to them via Rex that RIDER is very DEPRESSED and needs REASSURANCE. You escort them to the bedroom and again pace OUTSIDE while they talk. Half an hour later, you hear crying and decide to give them more privacy by having your NAP in your NOOK. Seems like they’ll be in there for a while anyway.

You dream about Jack, of course, playing catch with a young WING-KIN. As soon as she spots you she groans.

Jack: I’m not even asleep! Give me a fucking break.

Don't headbutt Jack, that's a surefire way to get BOSS involved.

Join in on the game of catch! Also, um, be nice to Jack in general.
No. 1042775 ID: c58093

I think attempting to play catch is going to distract Jack, and confuse the wingkin since it most likely cant see us and be confused by Jack's actions. Plus, the ball will probably phase through us.

Supporting the idea of being a cheerleader instead!

Also no licking. Jack will be upset we're inturrupting playtime

Run after the ball when she throws it.

>Bad Remy, you hit Mint too hard
You’re of the OPINION that Mint is lucky she still has fingers.

>Headbutt Jack
No no, you want to be FRIENDS with Jack so she doesn’t call BOSS on you. That means no licking and no hitting, your best RIDER level behavior.

You take a moment to look down. You’re a wispy ghost-like image of yourself, and by the way the RAVEN lad is staring, he can see you too.

???: Wow Auntie Jack, is that your SPIRIT? I’ve never seen it before.
Remy: Wak wak!
???: Can I touch him? He looks super cool. Dad won't let me get a pet…
Jack: Uh, I’m not sure you can. Let me try first.

Jack attempts to poke your face. You kind of feel it, her finger has an odd gelatinous texture and you stay perfectly still to show you are a GOOD BOY.

Jack: You bite him and I’ll get BOSS to evaporate your sorry KAIJU hide, got it?
Remy: Wak wak wak wak wak.
Jack: Alright Beaky, you can try it, watch out for those spikes.

You let the bird run his feathers all over you, glowing slightly under all the ATTENTION. Now here’s a KIN who doesn’t have severe KAIJU related trauma.

>Play catch
You nod your head toward the ball in Beaky’s hand and he throws it to you. It goes somewhere in your face, and you shake it on the ground so he can pick it up and toss it AGAIN.

Jack keeps a close eye on you while you play with Beaky. You discover you can’t go more than 5 meters away from Jack and you start feeling sleepy after about half an hour.

What fun! What joy! Between the BOND with Jack and Beaky’s short stature, you can almost pretend you’re playing with RIDER. Eventually you yawn and lie in the grass to SLEEP.

Your nap was late so you wake up late. The DUNGEON lights are starting to dim and you can hear people talking in the CAFETERIA. You’re quite confident Jack will keep you around, if only to win cool aunt points with Beaky, so your list of duties has been completed.

Before you meet up with RIDER, is there anything you’d like to do? Please list anyone or any place you’d like to visit.
No. 1042801 ID: e51896

Lets see the Kaiju mainly. ask if they've seen Bobby Slurps anywhere, and if they'd like to help your cause when the demon war begins.

Alternatively, we can search for one or more of the kin we haven't seen yet (Joseph, Forest girl, Kelsey, Sunshine, Pazuru, Hyun, and Laverne (the latter three worked the ruffled haunch and we never seen them

but overall, I want to see if we can find the Kaiju hanging out outside of the barrier and see if we can have a short WAcKy chat with them before we see our rider.
No. 1042802 ID: 629f2e

Well, we could go say hi to Andrea. She's related to RIDER, so it'll be nice if we can warm up to her as well.

The Carnivorous Garden, and Gruk.
No. 1042807 ID: f89136

I'm down with that. Let's just hope they still recognize Remy as family.

Considering the previous encounter was just Andrea trying to smash I say, to avoid potential awkwardness and discomfort, we wait for her to come to us without all the propositioning.

>Go to the BARRIER and call to the KAIJU
You have a feeling that some of your fellow MONSTERS survived after FLEEING the ANGELS that Isabella inadvertently summoned. Maybe you can get them to help you defend the BASE!

>Juniper dodge check: SUCCESS
You sneak out of the stump and sniff the air. Ugh, you can smell the TAINT of the FOREST girl’s magic. To keep the daily count of broken ribs to a minimum, you take the long way around so you don’t pass the graveyard.

The moon is half full and combined with your night vision you can see perfectly well. You start a stiff gallop towards the far end of the BARRIER, on the other side of the ruined TOWN.

The wall of concrete and steel rises before you, though much more intimidating is the INVISIBLE film of BOSS’ death bubble. You take a deep breath and ROAR.

You howl your hearts out for some TIME before trailing off into a pathetic whine. Where are your SIBLINGS?

With a heavy heart, you remember that since RIDER told that one muscly ANGEL about how breasts don’t have to be SEXUAL, he probably was able to hunt and kill all the rest of the KAIJU. You turn to leave when you feel a few heavy steps shake the ground.

A hammerhead SHARK face peers over the top of the physical wall. Sister Lung!

Remy: Where are the others?
Lung: DEAD, little KING. It won’t be long before I am slain as well. The ANGELS seem immune to these sacks of FLESH that CREATOR gave to protect us. I came when you called, but it is not safe for me to be so CLOSE to the CITY. Why do you still stay with the KIN that orchestrated our CREATOR’s death?
Remy: RIDER was only trying to free herself! She and I share a DEEP BOND and I LOVE her.

Lung sighs. You stamp the ground in frustration. You know RIDER hurt your siblings and kind of RUINED YOUR LIFE, but you HAVE to LOVE her.

Lung: I understand. You cannot help how CREATOR has shaped you.
Lung: I am also LINKED to you. What do you desire from me?

A. Ask Lung to sacrifice herself for you via jumping over the wall and dying so you can eat her BODY and GROW

B. Tell Lung to save herself and get as far from DONJON as possible

C. Ask Lung to stay near LYST

I think I'll choose C. With the strike team gone, we're probably going to need a giant Kaiju to help protect the town, and I'm sure once the tinkers finish their anti barrier thing, they can work out a plan with Lung in some way to help her be better prepared from angel attacks too, like against the buff angel. as long as we let them know she's an ally, and tell Lung not to hurt any kin from LYST.

Totally against A.

Cat told us he doesn't want us to grow, and he's the leader. Best do what he says. Plus, we've kind of been acting as everyone's missing therapist. maybe not professional therapist, but more of a comfort service kaiju, which is better than nothing. our growth might also freak people out because of their trauma.
Plus, since we've been acting kind of as everyone's missing therapist, it'd be trouble to solve everyone's issues if we can't be able to fit back inside the dungeon if we're big, which means we won't be able to help people feel better.
I'm not sure how our big size will effect Jack and Beaky's life either.

If at some point we NEED to gain size, Cat will give us that power when the time is right, like maybe towards when the demon war begins in a year or two. There's no point in eatting our sis when we have another method of growing later. Size manipulation can also not only make us grow, but shrink as well after all.

>one angel killed all the kaiju
Wow, giant Kaiju must fucking SUCK at fighting. Good reason for Remy to stay small. Maybe it's a good thing they mostly died though, they don't exactly have a place in this world.

B, but the enemy is going to WANO soon, so tell her to steer clear of there too.

...or maybe C, and we can lure the angel into a trap using the kaiju as bait. Perhaps RIDER can use her "friendship" with him as an additional distraction during the fight (or after it?) to allow Set to assassinate the angel.

Remy: I want you to stay, even if it’s RISKY. You might be able to help RIDER defend the BASE, though you’ll want to stay hidden as best you can so you don’t scare the KIN.
Lung: As you wish.

You try to offer advice about CAMOUFLAGE before bidding Lung goodnight. It’s selfish, but you feel comforted knowing another KAIJU is nearby.

>Andrea dodge check: FAILURE
On the way back to the DUNGEON, you spot a RABBIT darting towards you through the underbrush. Is it RIDER? Is she coming to see you? You enthusiastically bound forward to meet her.

Augh, it’s Andrea! You prepare your thick skull for more rib destruction in case Andrea tries to put a hand on you. You’re very fed up with all the KIN who think you’re some kind of TOY. Beaky is the only exception.

Andrea: Hey Remy! I spotted you earlier down in the ARENA, was there something you needed?
Remy: Wak.
Andrea: Right, right, Rex patch me in.

Remy: I was looking for WILLAMINA and she was not there. I later found her so it is no longer an issue. Do not PESTER me.
Andrea: Just being polite, bud. Sounds like someone needs to RELAX. I can think of a few things that might help…

How do you deal with Andrea?
No. 1042917 ID: 629f2e

She's your rider's sister, so maybe she can help Myriad feel better? Why not ask her to come with you and help her?
No. 1042919 ID: 15c72a

Tell her directly that you have no interest in sex of any sort, and that she should tell all the other perverts so that they stop harassing you.
Oh also tell Andrea that you convinced the last surviving giant Kaiju to stay near town to help protect it, and you'd like help keeping her hidden please so as not to freak anyone out. (and maybe ANDREA can suggest a sneaky plan to Set)
No. 1042924 ID: e51896

>>1042917 mainly this. Let Andrea know you've been on an important mission to help VV with her DEPRESSION all day and was finally going to relax by seeing her after already getting a few people to see her today to make her feel better about herself, and maybe Andrea can come along to give her sister company with you... it was one of the main reasons she came to Lyst after all, to be with Andrea... really let her know VV deserves Andrea's attention more than you deserve Andrea's attention right now.

>>1042919 also letting her know about the Kaiju is good. Best let Andrea know so she can deliver the message to Set later to convince her to let VV help protect the base with Remy and Lung instead of being benched now that she's got a giant Kaiju on our side under her command so VV can feel useful.
No. 1042925 ID: 5499f4

basically parroting what the others say about setting boundaries and talking about the kaiju. Though you should mention the big kaiju has big tiddies so if you want to fondle them, ask for consent but go ahead. (pass the buck, pass the buck, let her try to flirt with the other one)
No. 1042926 ID: e51896

She can't tho, the kaiju is on the other side of the super dangerous barrier
No. 1042930 ID: f89136

If any of them are sexual or lead to anything sexual prepare to get a cold shoulder at high speed. Regardless, you are wanting to to see how your rider, her sister, is doing, so unless it's pressing, it will have to wait. Maybe she should come with.
No. 1042934 ID: 5499f4

Counter: what if she just flirted with the thing and whenever it went down tried afterwards. They were working on an anti-barrier I think right? So maybe the big ol kaij can just come in when that happens?

Remy: I want to make it very clear that I have NO interest in sexual activities with you or Mint or anyone else and that I don’t appreciate any attempts to be snared by druid MAGIC. Even though my kind caused massive damage to LYST, I am not a threat and you don’t have to try and CONTROL me!
Andrea: Okay.
Remy: There is only ONE full-sized KAIJU left, and she obeys me and can help with our efforts to defend the BASE. She has large, pillowy BREASTS and may be more receptive to your flirtations if we use the ANTI-BARRIER to let her in.
Andrea: Yeah I’m going to have to ask about that one, that might freak out a lot of people.
Remy: All I care about is RIDER and I have been running around all DAY trying to cheer her up since she is very DEPRESSED because Set has stopped her from doing anything USEFUL. RIDER came all this way for YOU, so you should be trying to help her as well. I’m going to see her now, so you can come with ME.

With that impassioned speech, you hold your long neck high and stride towards the STUMP. After a moment, Andrea follows behind you.

The door is open, and you tentatively look inside. RIDER is sitting with Isabella on the bed, while Willamina leans against the end of the mattress. They’re watching BRAIN WORMS 3 on one of the handhelds the TINKERS put together. Everyone’s eyes are a bit bloodshot from crying.

Andrea: Is this girl’s night? Mind if I join?
Willamina: Come on in.

A. Follow Andrea and sit next to RIDER (You’ll feel loved and at peace)
B. Sit outside (You’ll hear them talk about SLAYER)
C. You feel drawn to the lower levels of the DUNGEON (You’ll learn about Set’s tragic backstory)
No. 1042968 ID: d98cb8

A, absolutely. Feel loved.
No. 1042969 ID: 629f2e

Easiest choice ever. A

C implies that Remy cares about Set when in reality she's just the bitch that made RIDER sad. Her tragic backstory is that she was born a bitch, the end.

B would be kind of interesting, because it would let us hear what Willamima and Isabella think about Max now, and might give us some insight into why RIDER is really sad if it has something to do with the last encounter and not other junk.

But A would make us happy, which is a tough offer to beat. We just spent the thread trying to make RIDER happy, I think we've earned a bit of self-care.
No. 1042973 ID: e51896


The other two are interesting, but...

while being everyone's therapist and caring for their mental health is important, so is our own mental health. We totally deserve this. Plus Andrea told us to relax. Say what you will about her, she knows the importance of taking a break

It’s the easiest choice of your LIFE. You enter the room and lay yourself at RIDER’s feet below the edge of the bed. She reaches down to stroke your head, and you tune out the sounds of the campy horror movie as you sink into a blissful doze. Maybe one day, once the WAR is over, your RIDER can get a nice house with a fur rug in front of the fireplace where you can sleep and grow old. A big yard to play fetch in. A warm, soft bed to rest your weary bones.

It’s only a daydream, but the thought is STRONG enough that you hope RIDER can feel it too.

Thanks for reading Queen of Hell! I don’t have plans to continue the CATALYST story any further besides some comics about Max’s misadventures with BOSS and Overmind, and I’m leaving it to Edmango to do the ENDING.
