Tell her you have one condition. She has to stay with her mother, because she needs her. If she agrees, that should make you feel better. In which case you might recover your... facilities.

If your dick still won't go then just fool around in other ways.

It’s very obvious she is navigating by touch. So are you, really. She kisses your nose and whiskers before finding your mouth and awkwardly prodding her tongue in. You really, really have to blank your mind to let the little shivers of pleasure make their way down your body. Don’t think about it. DON’T think about it.

Sally doesn’t know. Why did Ramona tell you and not Sally? The anxious thoughts quiet down as Sally grinds against your thighs, then against your groin. She’s just rooting around for what feels the most right.

Sally sits up, putting all her weight down on one spot. o n e s p o t

Her breathing slows a little bit.

Sally: “Is… somethin’ wrong?”

Sally: “Am I doing this wrong?”

She moves her hips from side to side, creating a pleasant warm slush out of the front of your boxer shorts.

You: “No. No, baby. You’re a natural.”

You bump up against her once, and she makes a nasally cooing noise that makes your heart kick into high gear.

Sally: “You just don’t seem happy”

Wrapped up in Sally’s virginal naivete and awkward fish-flopping, you find you managed to underestimate her. She can feel your tense shoulders and sense the pull in your kiss.

Would you want someone that loves you to know that you are dying a slow death, long before you get obvious symptoms? Would you want them to have that on their mind whenever they look at you? Like you have it in your mind right now? It wouldn't accomplish anything but make Sally sad (though I guess it might also get her to stay). She told you because then you'd understand why she wants Sally to stay, and Ramona still thinks she can get Sally to stay without telling her.

You: “Just a few bad dreams. That’s all.”

You: “Haven’t been getting enough sleep.”

Sally: “Are you ok?”

You: “Come on, sit up like this.”

You: “There we go. Get comfy. Let’s get this bra off of you...”

You change the subject, both from your crushing stress and your lack of a boner.

You: “You’re so tall, Sally.”

Sally: “Is that a bad thing? Most girls are short”

You: “No, it’s great. Those legs go on for days…”

Sally: “What have you been dreaming about?”

You stop and think about everything but the answer to her question.

You: “You. This. What you look like under your clothes. What does anyone dream about?”

You massage her flat belly, pushing your way down and down until she reacts by pulling her knees together. You find her clit with your middle and ring finger, circling around it with your claw and giving it a soft squish against her pelvic bone.

Sally: “Hhhh”

Sally: “Oh gosh, I’m about to panic”

Sally: “Thwwww fff”

You: “Don’t panic… relax. Pretend you’re in a big armchair”

You keep on going, faster until her words become unglamorous jumbled moans. She sucks in a breath and forces herself to stop making noise.

When she can’t hold back anymore, you slide two fingers in. She was ready long before you started, and it takes mere moments to smoosh and flick her into an embarrassing squirming mess. It’s still too dark for you to see, but by now she isn’t quiet, and you can feel her toes tensing up against your legs.

Sally really squeezes your left shin at the moment of her climax. Like really squeezes it with some kind of superhuman orgasm strength, digging her claws in before loosening her grip over a series of euphoric spasms. You bite down on her shoulder and grunt, which seems to toss her over the edge a second time.

As much as it pains you to get girls off without getting your dick wet, you are pretty fucking good at it when you need to be. It helps that Sally’s fresh on the market, but you still take a moment to admire your handiwork.

Sally is catching her breath and gradually melting down from her orgasmic full-body lockup. When she relaxes completely, she fits nicely into your lap. You can feel her heartbeat through her back, and it creeps you out a little. Bitch could use a few pounds, you guess. Feels kind of like snuggling up with a Ladies Fixed-gear Pannier Bicycle.

Sally: “It’s way different when someone else does it”

You: “Yeah, no kidding.”

Sally grinds her butt against you a couple of times and sighs.

Sally: “Do I just not… you know, ‘turn you on’?"

No. 743701 ID: 741a28

You: “Shhh. Don’t overthink it… you caught me at a bad time is all.”

You: “Dicks can be finicky. It’s like a little roommate in my pants.”

Sally giggles, and even you relax a tiny bit. You give her an affectionate rub-down to remind her just what you’re talking about.

You: “Anyway, you should probably go back to your room. Your mom stops in in the morning sometimes and I don’t want her to catch you in my bed.”

You: “And you might want to shower. You smell like pussy.”

Sally gives you an industrious nod.

Sally: “Right. Well. I guess”

Sally: “I’ll see you at the library tomorrow.”

As soon as the distraction of Sally leaves, thoughts of Ramona flood back in. You truly do not feel like sleeping now. Things just keep piling up on you and slipping out of your control.

You take the bobby pins up to the attic to sate your most pressing curiosity. The lock on the chest is old and rusted, you are eventually able to open it. This process is much easier when you are not trying to do it as quickly as possible.

The intense musty smell of the chest strikes you with an unpleasant warmth as you open it. With little light beyond the moonbeams through the loft windows, you squint your eyes to see that the chest is filled with papers and little tins. You won’t be able to read any of these papers in the dark.

You take a letter off of the end of the stack. It is written on the same Plath stationary that Ramona used for her invoice. There is no greeting on it, and the old-timey cursive handwriting is a little bit hard to make out.

I have not seen you in some time and I feel it fitting to air out
my words for once, and invite you again to share with me a rag of
gin. I want to thank you for the splendid fuite that
you have erected here, as it has been gracious for my work.

I hope this note finds you. Do write back or meet with me inside
my library if it does.

Truly and earnestly,


You toss the note aside and pick up another one. This one is a little more crumpled and folded, and has a splattered, brownish stain on the back. The handwriting is much, much worse, and not in cursive.

As you read my words, hear my voice and know that I yearn for
your touch every cold night. I can feel your soft back to my
chest and your ears tight in my hands. Think of these things
tonight while you rest. I will one day be home to bend you
over and fuck you until you grow tired.

I will cast you onto the floor, forsaking the bed as it is too
civil for the base deeds we will commit. Forgive my rashness,
as I can think of little else but you today. I only want to hear
your loving cries and smell your sweet perfume. Wait for me and
I will come home once this war is won.

It is with my kindest and dearest regards I bid you you farewell,
my love. For how long, I know not.

Until next we meet, my thoughts will be of you. I dare not utter
your name, for it fills me with melancholy and softens my spirit.
You are my the wound the hobbles me and the cane that lets me walk.

With love and longing,

We probably don't want to go into the catacombs without our flashlight but if there's light in the basement we could go look around for signs of the entrance in the cellar.

You look through the cellar, or at least feel your way through. It is creepy, but less creepy than the attic. The extensive liquor collection takes up most of the space here, but you find a pile of what seems to be old tools and some kind of debris. You take the pair of bolt cutters, but refrain from putting those anywhere near your genitals.

You may come down here again when you have a good light to use. You currently have: Cletus’ letter, bolt cutters, a bottle of gin.

>maybe between 2 days to 2 weeks worth for a business
In a CITY, maybe. Have you ever been to a small town?
With this few people, in what otherwise amounts to a dry county, it would be astonishing if the restaurant went through a bottle a day. You're probably looking at more like two or three bottles a week, mostly on the weekend.

I'm more concerned with making sure the Plath's are on board with supplying it, since the bottles are clearly labeled, and word is gonna get around.
No. 745459 ID: dd4df2

Get the job done proper and quick.

If we wanted to secure a good booze supply, we could head up to Mr. Davey's farm and call his bluff. If Ellen's experience is true I doubt his sincerity in wanting to screw a lady from town... so we can ask him to stop screwing with us and tell us what he needs to trade for reals. Show a little backbone to him.

We could also use the opportunity ask him about what happened to his wife, if we dare. (And try to tell Donna about Ellen's unfortunate state, and wouldn't it be nice if she went to cheer her up some, etc.)

I imagine there will be a slight element of risk involved, but from what we know of Davey he isn't really that bad a guy. Just messed up by loss.
No. 745493 ID: c441c1

actually if we look at the size of the town that supply would last maybe a year possibly more because the Mayor would probably say something about it causing a bit of hesitance to try it; but your right that in the long term unless she gets a supplier that is making the product it will run out, so calling Davey's bluff maybe on the weekend would be a good idea.
Pranking Naz back is a priority but it can't be a poorly thought out venture we should ask everyone in town that we see as a passing question how they would prank Naz.
Pick up the costume from the doctor this will probably be instrumental to the prank.

It seems to me that Naz's everything is all tangled up in the sex that she probably wasn't getting. Really, Chuck likes Naz, and likes pranks... and he likes sex too, but he doesn't like them all at the same time.

Sex is a time when people are particularly vulnerable, and there have been a lot of things putting Charlemagne on edge recently.

So if Naz can keep sex and pranks separate, then I don't know why she should give up either, or why Chuck should give up on her. If she can't keep the pranks out of the sex, though... I guess she'll have to find somebody else.

All of which calls for another one of those darn SERIOUS TALKS Chuck hates having, and the air's still pretty bad between them. But... maybe call the breaking-things-off off for now?

We should consider the offer genuine, and generous. We should ALSO consider what would motivate her to make such a lewd offer.

No. 747714 ID: 595d54

We should consider the possibility that it's genuine and generous. We should also consider the possibility that it isn't.

So, reasons why the snayor might want anal: She might be trying to jump on the grenade and get Chuck to stop propositioning other women, in which case she's horribly mistaken. She might also really want that cat dick, which seems somewhat unexpected. Or the blue agate, but she doesn't actually have to put out when she gets it.

Reasons why she would be lying: She wants the agate and dislikes lewd things happening in "her" village.

Maybe we should have a backup plan? Like getting a bottle of whatever that thing was that dogmom gave you that made you resist snek's hypnosis thing in case shit gets crazy? Or maybe get some ass-istance from naz/dogmom (or just someone else we can trust) to be able to escape?

Let's ask the policewoman what she thinks about the snayor.
No. 747751 ID: 3740b1

I say call her bluff immediately (if it is one). Show her the stone and demand payment before handing it over. She obviously wants the thing and we've already proven immune to her powers so at worst we'll have determined that she was making a bs deal. At best we get to knock two things off our bucket list. We definitely surprised her with this conversation - giving her time to regain her footing and plan something tricky for us that doesn't rely on her powers seems like bad course of action. We have the upper hand for the moment - better to press the advantage.

Lets do it.
No. 747755 ID: 79a07e


May I suggest an adjustment: Show her a PICTURE of the agate (and maybe you in the photo so she doesn't think you just got it off the net or something), then bring that to her saying, 'Hey look what I found. I'll bring it to you, but I want to know you're legit first. Show me dat snekbutt.'
No. 747756 ID: 3740b1

I'd also like to add that taking a drastic course with the only character we know of who could be considered a villain might liven things up one way or another. We've fallen into a bit of a rut, and if we're not careful we may find ourselves just another part of the scenery in this picture perfect little village. Doing a workaday routine is not who Chuck is. Chuck just does that shit to get by in between adventures. Chuck is a rebel and a rowdy and a roustabout and a rapscallion and a rogue. Chuck is a rude and crude motherfucking Legend and there's two things he'd never let slip by: ass and a chance to upset the status quo. This is both.

No. 747836 ID: b88e5a

We're sure being cocky. Just because the power she's been toying with isn't working on us doesn't mean she doesn't have a fallback plan.

Maybe I'm just underestimating Chuck's "charm", but it's at least as likely that our good snake gave in to Chuck's demands because she knows she is going to win.

I suggest we don't tell her we have the stone, and try to figure out how she might use it before we do. Before we go, ask about Harold.

After the police maybe you should go see Ellen and see if she would want to meet up with Davey at the farm. He was a bit of an ass the last time you went by, but apparently he once had a nice side to him. If those two hook up then maybe he'll provide cider and apples.

Yes! I like the idea of tainting the stone if she wants to use it for something.

Really though I think our main play needs to be to seduce the snake. When we find the stone we are REALLY REALLY going to need to bring our A game so we can come out of this on top. Give her a taste of what the ledge is capable of and leave her wanting more. Not only would it be a good power play we might get her to lower her guard some.

But that's not important right now. We need to get to the police station and check out some more of that golden Amazonian booty. I hope we get lucky and she needs to bend over to fetch some paperwork.

It must be laying low now after the failed murder but it could also be that it only goes after those it deems immoral. I hate to say it Chuck but we might need you to play bait. I think this is a lost cause though.

Instead let's thank the pretty police dog for taking a look into it. Then we switch to full on flirt mood. Remember that booty Chuck. That sexy, thick butt... Where was I?

Ok, here's an idea: if she's the cop, then she's probably given everyone the stink-eye at least once when they came to town, right? It's her job to keep track. Ask if there's anyone else besides you who came to this town after her.

Don't mention the mayor's mind-control stuff, just that she acted weird and avoided talking to you when you asked about this stuff, that should be the minimum you need for her to not go ask the mayor about this stuff herself. Maybe tell her about the other stuff.

Tell her that apparently, the Plaths used to have a Gin Distillery. Tell her you think it might be hidden under the town in those Catacombs the mayor keeps trying to make people forget.

It's gin. Hard liquor doesn't age in the bottle.

Well, if this is purgatory, then the wanted posters could've come from Chuck himself. He knows he's a wanted man and he knows someone's gotta be looking for him. And as a result, the purgatory took those thoughts and manifested them in the form of wanted posters. But that only works if this really is purgatory.

If Penny wanted booze for her shop it was because someone asked for it. Maybe it our cute spider gal. We can either give her a pull or ask if she has a couple of glasses. I've always though gin was for mixing so I don't know how you drink it.

And I don't think we need to worry about her ratting on us. I think she might be a little upset that the Plaths have been hording it and not sharing. ... Or maybe she's upset because she can't remember her past life clearly because of the stupid magic whatever that's blocking our sense of time. At the very least we don't want them getting in trouble so we should mention that neither of them drink and they're not sell it.

How about something like this:
"And it's been a love while since I've had such attractive company to drink with. If you think you can find us a couple of glasses I think we could bother use a break from this dry spell. I could use a few more good memories before it's back to staying sober."

She leads you out of the Shoppe, locking the door to her workshop. Discarding any prior engagements you might have had, you follow behind with the garment bags in one hand, and the back of general crap (including the booze) in the other. It is a walk north across town to get to Sophie’s apartment building, which seems desolate. She walks up the steps to her unit and quietly unlocks the door. You have to wonder why people even bother to lock their doors in this town, since it seems farfetched that there would ever be a crime.

Sophie lights the candle in the middle of the breakfast table and sits down. You uncork the gin with a series of unfortunately loud squeaks, and fill two small cups about halfway. You take a sip, and the pungent smell of a pine forest soaked in ethanol strikes you right away. It’s pretty good.

You: “We should finish up our discussion.”

Sophie takes a sip, too.

Sophie: “Yes.”

You: “So you’re from some place that’s not here.”

Sophie: “Yes, so are you.”

You: “I’m from a few states up. It’s different.”

You look around the tiny apartment. There are very few personal affects, and almost no decoration. There is a single photo in a frame standing on top of Sophie’s vanity, and a bolt of black cloth leaning against the wall.

I hate breaking the post only responses rule but I'm going to say chuck would know that the war would be Vietnam.

It could be Korea. But yeah, it's obviously not World War I or anything like that.

You have been trying so hard not to think about Ramona all day, so the last thing you want to do is talk about her.

You: “So… what’s the weirdest piece of clothing you’ve ever had to work on?”

Sophie takes no time to answer.

Sophie: “Yours.”

You: [see image]

Sophie: “You… paid good commission for those costumes. What do you need them for?”

You: “Well, to be perfectly honest…”

a) tell her the truth
b) make up an absurd story >_

Shooting some 'home videos' with Naz. Like she's not going to know who the second piece is for by the measurements anyway.

You: “Naz.”

Sophie: “Oooh. I should have known it was… the mouse.”

Sophie: “Hahaha…”

You: “I don’t think I need to say any more, then.”

You finish off your second cup.

You: “So what do you do for fun? Outside of work.”

Sophie: “Hm… explore the woods, take pictures of the scenery. The land is… beautiful. Here.”

Sophie: “Angela gets me to play the drum sets because I have many more arm, but… I am not so good.”

Alright. Stay calm about the woods, we can come back to that later. Instead tell her that "you're sure you're very talented with those hands of her."

Does she know of anyone that lives in the woods?
No. 751224 ID: b8d5aa

ask to see some of the pictures she's taken. pretend to be interested. possibly actually be interested. and also if she's ever come across anything SPOOKY in the woods.
No. 751246 ID: 6612fa

ask her if she has a photo album, amateur photographer and all she probably has good pictures. compliment them and warm her up.

on a side note looking at those pictures taken by a person that has lived and explored those horrid woods might revel some secrets in those woods, maybe a way to the catacombs is out there in the woods or maybe she has a picture of the sheet man already.

You ask Sophie if she has ever seen anything unusual in the woods, and she stands up. Though a bit unsteady on her feet after a couple of drinks, she manages to find her album of photos. She opens it up and flips through a few pages, each with Polaroid snapshots taped to them.

Sophie: “Here I put the strange ones”

Sophie: “Sometimes I think I see something there”

Sophie: “Sometimes… I don’t see it until I look at the picture.”

Each of the photos on the page seems to have some blurry shape that could be mistaken for either a humanoid, or just something entirely unidentifiable. She points to one in the corner.

Sophie: “This one… I did not see until the picture developed.”

Sophie: “When I looked in the spot…nothing there.”

All of the pictures are in black and white. The first one the page shows what could be a figure standing on the opposite end of a field. It is too distant to tell much about it. The second one shows some kind of mass amid a growth of shrubs. It is difficult to tell a defined shape, but looks like it could be some kind of fungus with shiny bits on it. The third shows a train rolling along the tracks, which you recognize as those just north of Coxwette. The fourth is difficult to make out.
No. 751310 ID: 398fe1

Spooky. The woods are haunted then huh?

WAIT, that bottom right one, we've seen that guy. That one's not a ghost, point him out. Or her?
No. 751311 ID: 91ee5f

>The fourth is difficult to make out.
Are those rabbit ears? Could that be the crazy looking rabbit guy we saw one time?
No. 751313 ID: 65317a

Hold her close from behind while looking the book over with her and pointing out the rabbit eared shape.
No. 751314 ID: 9876c4

We could always make a date to go explore the woods with Sophie.
I mean, for the people who aren't gonna try to seduce her right now.

More importantly, the trains are running! We could escape this madhouse if we had enough reason to want to.
No. 751315 ID: 350a50

Point out the rabbit and say you've seen that one watching you from the woods before at night.
No. 751318 ID: f562b1

Tell her that you think you've seen both the white figure, and the long-eared one. No idea who or what the long-eared one is, but that white one seems to be some religious nut. Attacked you and when you asked the mayor, she said to "not be debaucherous."
No. 751321 ID: b8d5aa

why is a simple picture of a train on her page of 'weird stuff'?

You fill up Sophie’s drink, then yours.

You: “I think I saw the person in the lower right.”

Sophie: “Hm…”

You: “Looks kind of like a rabbit or something, right? Look, you can kind of see the ears there.”

Sophie nods.

You: “On the upper right one, I am pretty sure that is that thing that attacked me in the woods.”

Sophie: “The lump…?”

You: “No, in the background.”

You point to the foggy, white shape in among the bushes, and Sophie gasps.

Sophie: “I… I didn’t even see that!!”

You: “Remember when I came in with those weird stab wounds? It was from that thing…”

Sophie drinks again.

You: “Why’s the train there?”

Sophie: “I… had never seen the train like that.”

Sophie: “Come to deliver mail, but I have not seen it stop here.”

Sophie: “That was the only time I seen the train, so I take a picture.”
No. 751326 ID: 3e182c

Even at a distance I'm surprised an old Polaroid could make out a moving train so clearly.

And are those lights coming from it, or is it just totally devoid of passengers?
No. 751327 ID: 65317a

Ask her if she would want to try going out in the woods with you later with her camera. While doing this gently rest a hand on her hip or if you're feeling brave, her ass.
No. 751328 ID: b8d5aa

so, what to do with this information? are we too unsettled to smooch a spider? what about naz, can we patch things up enough to do a muffin themed porno? and what about the plaths? it's not like your BOOZE THIEVERY will go unnoticed.
No. 751337 ID: 71d443

You should go searching for this weird fungus sometime. As for the train photo, how long ago was that? Could it have been the day you arrived?

This. Lower your inhibitions, and your hands.
No. 751351 ID: 18c9f5

Don't go straight for the ass grab. Start on her hip, and work your way into it. If she stops you, you can blame it on the booze: you didn't even realize it was happening.
No. 751372 ID: 0f8ac0

There's a good chance it was the train Chuck arrived on.

Where is Sophie's camera? You guys should take a few pictures of yourselves to commemorate the occasion. Good excuse for some skin contact.

You: “We should go for a walk out there sometime.”

You: “Take some pictures of our own.”

Sophie gets up and walks to her vanity, taking a folding camera out of the drawer. You stay behind and squint at the train photo. It is hard to tell if it was the same train that you got onto on your way to Coxwette. This one looks like a normal black locomotive pulling a train of completely empty boxcars.

Sophie: “I have not taken any pictures in… about one week.”

Sophie: “If I have some time in the day, I will go. Maybe weekend.”
