You walk down the hall to the room you saw Sophie in the night before, and knock on the door.

Sophie: "Come in."

She is standing near the bed, apparently in the process of cleaning the place up. She sighs deeply, and you can hear the anxiety rattling her chest.

Sophie: "You are injured."

Sophie crooks over and inspects the cuts on your stomach, mumbling to herself in half-English. She reaches out to touch one of the cuts, and you flinch.

Sophie: "Shallow linear incisions..."

Sophie: "No signs of infection."

She reaches into her bag, taking out a thermometer.

Sophie: "Open."

You oblige, and she places it under your tongue. Sophie walks behind you, touching one of your back wounds.

Sophie: "Oh..."

You: "What?"

Sophie: "More back puncture. Like before. I don't see injury like this..."

Sophie: "Not like bullet wounds. No shrapnel, no objects."

Sophie: "How this happen?"

You: "You have to see it to believe it. The same monsters that hurt Layla did this."

Sophie: "Layla haves sword wound. Blade cuts? Familiar to me. But this."

Sophie: "This like cat bite. Needs fast treatment before infection comes."

She reaches into the bag you brought from the warehouse and withdraws a couple of vials, followed by some fresh syringes from her bag.

Sophie: "No stitches needed. I'm going to give you..."

Sophie: "Penicillin and streptomycin. Injection daily until healing is underway."

You: "Wait, injection?"

Sophie: "Soldiers charge in to battle, get ambush, shot, mortar, landmines, and they laugh"

Sophie: "But then they come to hospital"

Sophie: "and they afraid of needle."

She shakes her head, then gives your arm a gentle pat and prompts you to stand up again.
No. 833987 ID: 3ce125

So ask her if she's feeling okay. Rough night? Need any help relaxing?

Consider telling her about Susanna being immortal but using that fact to tank the reverends all night so she's gonna show up covered in blood, maybe. Also that the wounds on your back are from some kind of organic needle the revs stick you with and probably pump holy water into you in some super-ignorant attempt at purifying you.

Fifthing massage. While helping her out, ask if she has any information, opinion, or insight on the person Layla brought in, on the person we brought in (i.e. Julia), and then how Rachel, Rita, and Layla are doing.
No. 834026 ID: b9b4da

There's a couple of models of monster, so they might not all have natural weapons, but the one that's taken a fancy to you has a bunch of needle-tipped tentacles coming out of his back - likely related to something he did in life.

Now it's Sophie's turn for a checkup. No jabbing involved - unless she asks nicely for it.
No. 834067 ID: f66698

A massage is a good move, but chat her up a bit first. Ask her how she's coping with all the injuries and the fucked up situation. Once she expresses that she's tired and stressed, then you can work that chuck magic to get a massage going.

I feel like there's better things we could be doing than trying to fug the bug again. By my count there's still 8 or 9 women on the cast that Chuck hasn't fucked yet, we could try for one of those instead. Alternatively, we still haven't made it to the promised land of snanal (snake anal).

Sit next to her and hug her - carefully, as she might not appreciate it.

Given there's a good chance she's having a flashback, and that we're pretty sure no one in town was hurt too badly, this might not be the most tactful way to put it.

I vote just being quiet for now, instead: let's just have a moment to calm down. If she wants to talk about it, or thinks there's something we should know, she'll bring it up.
No. 834122 ID: 1d63c1

When the medic is upset and you don't know what's happened for the last couple hours at least, that is potentially a very bad sign. First priority is figuring out if the problem is with her or if something happened to one of the others.

A+ strategy, folks.

Let's try some Chuck-tier dialogue: "Shit. Should I go sneak some of that booze now that Ramona doesn't need it?"

She has a sense of duty, is almost certain to decline, but fuck it it's not like she's likely to get mad at the offer, and it's a Chuck-esque one without being scumbag.

You: "Come on. Talk to me about it."

"Being strong doesn't mean not showing weakness, it means doing what you need to do.
It also means knowing your limits, and keeping your focus off the problems that other people are working on.

Triage is over, everybody is alive, everybody is stable.
Most injuries are minor, and we're all recovering. There's work, but the most stressful part is over.

We need more medicine? Ok, write up an emergency order for what we need, and we'll get that sent.
We're not cut-off from supplies, they just might take a few days to get here.
A run to the train station is quick and safe, not like running around the whole damn town looking for people. We can do that without anybody getting hurt.
So all you need to do there is write up the order, and the rest of us will get you what you need.

Closed space? Yes, but it's a big space. There's still empty rooms here, so we're not exactly in cramped quarters. There's also an underground tunnel system going to the basement that they enemy may not know about. I'm going to look into that, but that's on me, not you.

Enemies surrounding? Yes, but they can't get in. They're magic bullshit, and we have magic bullshit to keep them out. It's a siege, but we have the advantage.
That's also not your job; that's Susanna's job.

Is it just me, or are people in this town kind of... whiney? I'm not saying to tell Sophie this, but her reaction seems a little disproportionate to the situation. Could this have something to do with the curse on the town?
No. 834170 ID: d4516a

I wouldn't say 'whiney', just that everyone here has a lot of baggage. Sophie, for instance, is a veteran and this whole thing probably reminds her of some bad times.

Hell, applies even to Chuck, what with his whole child star thing.

Hold steady. Doctors see a lot of shit, and they usually have to bottle it up. And this one's been to a bad war, so she's probably experiencing some old trauma on top of her current stress. Help her through it.

"Then nothing. You're fine, and everyone's hero. You're doing good. A little cry isn't ruining anything. Nobody's panicking - if most folks saw you now they'd just be awkward and a little sad, because you're a great person and the town loves you for what you've done for them and if they were here they'd want you to know that it's not on you to save us all, but thank you and bless you for trying. You're good people."

Give her a little time.

"I'm not the best person to say this - but you're not alone in this. If us layfolks can do anything to help, then tell us. If it's a moment of space - if it's a helping hand, a wannabe nurse to mentor, a shoulder to cry on, an asshole to rant at, anything - there's folks out there who'd jump at helping you, in whatever way they can. Heck, might be good for a few folks to get a little first-aid mentoring in our downtime - gives both them and you something else to think about. But, uh, don't feel like you gotta. Just do it if you feel you're up to it, and you think it might offload that magnificent sense o' responsibility of yours a little. Not suggesting you pile stress on stress here. Just... strong means a lot of things. Sometimes strong is knowing you're just one person and you can't possibly deal with all the shit that's going on alone."

Consider the wisdom of your friend becoming a helping hand/nurse to the doc.

Well from the medical dramas I've seen this is basically normal. Tell her it's alright, the situation isn't that bad. There's only three reverends, while you've got two men with guns and an immortal snake dryad-witch who will probably get the town warded again within a couple days.
No. 834231 ID: f66698

Let her know it's ok to let it out. Things aren't as bad as they seem, everyone made it back and she kept things together here admirably. Everyone who needs treatment has been treated, and now she has a moment to just sit and process.

So let her, tell her she did good and she can rest for now.

Then make sure you're not pushing yourself too hard, heading for a burn-out. Drink plenty of water, catch up on sleep when the situation's relatively stable. Recruit some nurses, by which I mean figure out who else around here has enough first aid training or just plain common sense that you can delegate some of the medical work to them.

>Enemies surrounding
We know a lot about the enemy. There's only three of 'em, real easy to distract or lure into ambushes, they haven't got guns, wouldn't know how to use 'em if they did, and they fall down just fine when they get hit. Only tricky part is getting them to stay down. Most important is they haven't actually got us properly surrounded. You need more drugs, or other supplies? Write up a shopping list, I'll run over to the train station and it'll all come in with the next load of mail.

Another potential problem is that Ramona might not want to let her in because of distrust, but we really need to all work together now.

Alright, boss ladies. What's next? Giant orgy out of spite? Or do we focus on boring things like getting the ward on the town back up?

Susanna hesitates at first, cautiously lifting her foot over the threshold. By the time she works up the courage to enter completely, Ramona is standing in the den.


Susanna: "I heard you had"

Susanna: "a bit of a probablem with drinking."

Ramona: "I did."


Susanna: "I'm glad"

Susanna: "I'm glad you're ok."

Ramona glares at her, taking a small sip from her brandy.

Being the focus of positive attention from a large group of people generally makes people feel either awkward or happy or both, and either way being in that spot together should help break the ice between them a bit.

Let's not sit down to the big problem-solving group debate quite yet, Susanna needs time to rest. After a moment, take Ramona aside, ask her if she's sure she's feeling alright, then toss a few ideas back and forth with her. Susanna has issues and is generally hard to get through to, so make it easier on yourself by practicing what you're going to say.

We still need to wrap up previous night, and Rita was not only the one lucid and intelligent person besides us present, but we need to thank her for getting us out of there at all. A lot to talk about.

Cities have so many people that they build skyscrapers just so there's enough room for everyone to live. Dozens of families per floor, dozens of floors, everyone living on top of each other. Buildings that stretch into the sky, clad in metal and glass, man-made canyons that funnel the wind. Underground networks of tunnels for light rail trains, so that people can get where they need to go.

Between the cities there's vast stretches of rural areas, kind of like Coxwette. Some parts are even more lonely. There's places a person can go and be the only thinking thing for as far as the eye can see.

They're pretty close, actually, especially when the recipient of the boasts has just been given a hint of you not being that great of a person. Nothing Julia may have hinted would have anything to do with the concept of "the best".

This is not a good time for putting ourselves on a pedestal: best case scenario we'll put her off enough to not score, worst case scenario we'll open a real big can of worms on the subject of old sins and other bullshit.

Whether you say "I'm the best" or "I'm the good person", the reply will be the same: "No you're not. According to Julia you're a rubbish drug dealer and an all-around douche."

So yes - in this context, they ARE the same thing. You're just being pedantic.
No. 838996 ID: e93346


Rita stood up,for the man chuck was then and also chuck told julia (also in front of rita) that he wasnt like that any more. If rita was as convinced as your dumb ass seems to be that chuck was pathetic and a douche, she wouldnt be chilling with him and having this concersation in the first place.

Its also still not pedantic, a general boast is not, in fact, a claim of moral upstanding nature. Theyre not close. You are reaching as hard as you can to try to frame it incorrectly entirely out of your insistence that the quest is no longer allowed to have fun or lewd elements. You are not the tyrant who decides on your own what the tone or subject matter of the quest is allowed to be, no matter how much you want to be that exact thing.
No. 838998 ID: ee43ea

I'm all for lewdness and I'm not trying to arbitrate anyone. I just think that in this instance it'd be too risky a subject to broach, and wouldn't go anywhere anyway because everyone involved is too hurt to do anything.

No. 839023 ID: ee43ea

See, here's what I had in mind.

Chuck actually shows some humility. Gains from Rita sympathy and respect rather than awe - which would last longer. From there conversation could naturally drift towards last night's events, and to what kind of a fuck-up Julia is: it'd bring us closure, catharsis, and possibly an actual friend rather than just a quick fling.

There are literally no drawbacks with this course of action. Well, unless you actually like Julia, but who in their right minds would?
No. 839117 ID: 1a95ea

Keeping it real and boasting do not shut each other out.

Tell Rita of the rougher parts now. Tell her of the poverty and the drugs and the crime - and paint yourself as a badass handsome rogue who's gone through all this shit and triumphed and learned to be a better person. Like Han Solo.

Tell Rita she should leave Coxwette, at least for a time if she's got the wander bug. But only as soon as the curse is lifted. Just be straight about her with the curse, that if she tries to leave right now, she'll end up like one of the reverends probably. Maybe not as horrible or people killing, but nontheless a zombie walking endless fields for eternity. That's probably what happened to Sally's Dad after all.

Just because her brother's here doesn't mean she's chained to this place. Families, you know, move to far away places and split apart by necessity all the time. You may love your brother but that's not going to change here or in Timbuktu. You barely talk to each other, so shit, girl, just ring him up on the telephone occasionally and it'll be no different than now.

Marcie is cute Chuck, and we need to get her warmed up to your charms sooner than later but what you really need is some "stress relief," the wink wink nudge nudge kind. And I'm thinking you actually have a chance with your old flame. Plus it would be helpful to get her under your thumb so she can't share your secrets, or worse, get the other girls to dislike you.

Perhaps against your better judgment, you follow Marcie. She is standing at the counter smiling, stirring a bowl of batter using both of her bandaged hands. You begin to wonder if she even realizes she is injured.

You: "Hi Marcie."

Marcie: "Oh, hey Chet!"

You: "Chuck."

You: "How are you feeling? Do you know when the bandages can come off?"

Marcie: "I feel... ok!!"

Marcie: "Dr. Sophie said it would be at least a week, and she'll be changing them every other day."

You: "I'm glad."

Marcie: "I really should get to baking. I'm making one hundred loaves of sourdough bread to freeze so we all have good food to eat!"

You: "Do you need some help? You're... you know, all mittened up."

Marcie giggles.

Marcie: "No, I think I can handle it. It is a lot of waiting on the starters. I could make bread in my sleep!!"
No. 842640 ID: 2474dd

Let's keep in mind the point we are in this story. We don't have a lot of time for a 'long con'.

Tell her the truth. Tell her the reason why we told her we loved her. Find out why it worked. Maybe it will jump-start something, maybe it won't, but she needs to know why we avoided her so long and then turned around and played hero. This isn't the time for holding things back and not saying things that should have been said: we are at end game.

What about... other stuff? Will she need any help getting ready for bed? Dressing, undressing?
No. 842644 ID: fbf7fe

I mean, yeah, but being overtly sexual towards her is going to backfire, and then we're not getting to her at all, fast or slow.

I feel that our best bet here is to reaffirm that everything we said outside that freezer was true, and maybe get her to talk to Penny for details. I feel like we'd probably get better results if she heard the details from somebody else, and she trusts Penny, and Penny knows about the whole deal.
No. 842645 ID: e24b91

Say this:
"Ah, what I probably should have said is that I really, really want to help, not because you're mittened up, but because I just want to help you, specifically."

Or something along the lines, we're helping because you're Marcie! not specifically because you're injured.

Then give him the bad news. Julia's here too but you can't get up to any shady business because there's no way out of town. The road literally goes on forever. He's gonna have to go legit, at least until you figure out some way of finding a way out. Also ask him to maybe keep his past dealings with you on the down-low? Ask him what the cops saw him actually doing and when. We can come up with a cover story for him that doesn't involve him being a career criminal.

No, no, no. If we tell him about the current threat, and that he'll just have to cooperate and stay on the straight and narrow, chances are he'll take the first opportunity to nick some supplies and high-tail it outta here.

Best not to tell him anything yet. Just get info outta him. Then, tell him we'll "pull some strings and get you outta there. Might take a while, though."

That should hopefully convince him to sit tight and not try anything. And heck, maybe we'll even be able to make good on the promise, later.
But do compliment his grandfather's style, though.

He'll try to high-tail it outta here, get killed, and we could then take the supplies back.

If he asks, be right-up front. Nobody can leave. He's probably figured out something is wrong already given the relocation.

But don't give out more information than he asks for.

Let him cool his heels for now. Last thing we need is for him to try to kill Julia in the middle of all this. Don't let him know Julia's here, he'll just make more trouble.

Not sure it's a great idea to let Julia know he's here either. She's likely to do something equally stupid and endanger the house. Just make sure they don't come in contact with each other. We should let Ramona and Susanna know, they should be able to help keep the peace and we can trust them not to panic.
No. 843486 ID: b9b4da

We should tell at least one of them that the other is here, pulling the wool over two heads is a lot harder than one. Bring up the loss of his car and gun without necessarily naming names. Perhaps with a "hey, did you drive all the way out here to find me?"

He will take care of all our problems in one fell swoop and then hopefully disappear forever.

Do it, Chuck. Lock them outside and be done with it. Coxwette is full of good people, and these bad apples will kill the whole batch. You're changing, and they're not. Every second, a million years. For all you know, Jessica has been drugging your friends for millennia, worrying about the fucking cops. She's the same as ever and doesn't want to change, and she is bloody dangerous.

Just tell him the bare minimum, ask him to sit tight, say we'll try to get him out eventually but once we do he probably should leave. Like, don't go into details but say there's some shit going on here, we got involved, he should keep out of it for his own safety.

Also, wonder silently why this place keeps calling in assholes you know.

OK, good, good. We're on the same page.

Let him know you're working on getting rid of the zombies. Also warn him that you can't escape town until you do. He's got more sense than Julia -- survival goods are practical. Given the situation it's likely that a desperate guy trying to get food and water is forgivable in a town plagued by undead preachers.

Don't tell him about Julia though. We can deal with that once the town is clear.
No. 843648 ID: 3ce125

Yeah, we know about that. Here's the deal: this is a town magically cut off from the outside world, designed to be a sort of pleasure town for lost souls (I mean let's be honest it's called Coxwette for a reason), but some fucking reverends got stuck in here too and keep coming back from the dead and trying to fuck everything up.

They almost did. The rest of the town was warded against them, but now only this house is. Wanna help take back what's ours?

Maybe John will forgive him for looting in what was obviously a survival situation.

Look, I'm pretty sure I can smooth this over. I'll talk to the shop's owner, explain the situation, and bring her here. You apologize, everybody's all smiles.
Sound like a plan?"

Lets go talk to Ellen and explain.
Keep the story simple: Jimmy was lost in the woods, stumbled into town in the middle of the zombie crisis, couldn't find anybody, and stole food and water from her store because he needed it and there was nobody around to ask for help. He was in a really bad situation, he wants to apologize.

Hooking Depressed Deer up with Brick McSlabBeef would also solve a few other problems.

No. 843684 ID: 33d4be

Go back to the doctor zone and see what's what, there.

Four reasons: 1) Layla is probably still there she needs to know that it's ok Jimmy's out, plus you and Jimmy do probably need just a little more encouragement to keep things lawful for the immediate future, and there's nothing in this town that'll make a couple of scofflaws considerate of their scoffing habits like another peek at that fine policebutt.
2) It'll help make sure Jimmy's aware how serious this is for everyone and what kind of attitude everyone's in.
3) Susanna is probably there, and you can show Jimmy what she looks like so that he's fully aware of who the authorities in town are and who to watch what he's saying around the most, that plus general information giving is a favour you can be doing him to further establish your position as his buddy around here.
4) Now that it's out to pretty much everyone that Susanna's some supernatural creature herself, she, and that means we if we want to encourage her thinking of Chuck as a friend, we need to think about her image with the people. Right now I'll bet people are gossiping up a storm and we don't want to leave the idea that she's a vampire or a demon or something to sit and get established in people's heads. So we need to ask her what she wants Chuck to tell people. Personally, I'm thinking we tell people she's a fairy. People like fairies. Fairies can be friends. Better than a lot of the other options people will find plausible.
No. 843690 ID: 2474dd

Fuck no, don't let either know the other is here if we can avoid it and make sure they never meet. Jimmy might keep a cool head, Julia will lose it.

You tell him about Julia he's apt to kill her. I vote you let him go about what he wants to do and we go visit another lady. My vote is see how Penny is doing.

No. 843714 ID: fbf7fe

He's going to learn Julia's here, no matter what we do. Best he learn it from us.
I want to say we should probably tell him not to hurt Julia on account of the monsters being attracted to sin, and not mention that the house is protected... But that would make it very risky to have sex with anybody in here, because he might discover that sinning is... Relatively safe. And then he'll go commit a sin against Julia.
So, we need some way to convince him not to hurt Julia. For now.
No. 843723 ID: 3ce125

It's still dangerous to sin in this house. The last time Chuck boned Ramona, one of the reverends came to the door and just would not stop trying to get in. It eventually left, but apparently the reverends aren't leaving anymore. If one (or more) of them gets lured to the house it might become impossible to leave the house without being attacked.

I mean I'm not saying we should completely avoid sex but we should have some sort of long-term plan first.
No. 843728 ID: fbf7fe

Oh yeah, speaking of long-term plans: The Catacombs. We originally wanted to get down there to get Sally a book on the Plath lineage, but I assume we'll probably still wanna get down there and see if there's any answers to the whole... Zombie-Reverends curse, thing.
So, we'll probably need to make sure the supplies for the trip are still here: Flashlights, ropes... Some food?
We'll also need a gun. Which means either talking Davey (good luck with that) or John out of their shotguns. The alternative is to bring them along, but Davey's got a... Self-centered streak, so if he comes along, he might not be reliable. And John's a cop, therefor a natural source of authority, and therefor might not follow our orders. Best not to take either of them, and instead try and get one of their guns.
We'll probably also want to decide who to take. We'll need Sally to get us in. And I'm thinking Julia to guide us in via the warehouse. Anybody else we wanna bring?

Jimmy: "Probably not."

Jimmy: "Man what are you doing hiding in this place?"

You look over your shoulder to ensure that you and Jim have walked out of John's earshot. You catch Jimmy up on what is going on with the town, how no one can really leave, and how the Plath mansion is the only place left the monsters can't get into. You leave out the part about robbing a bank.

Jimmy: "So we're locked in a little hotel? But it smells like mildew? Alright, I can work with that."

Jimmy: "Yeah. Not bad. Any bitches here? Not just dogs but you know what I mean. I've been riding for about eight hours so I feel like checking if my dick's still attached."

Can't risk him interact with any locals. He might well spill out uncomfortable facts and half-truths about us and our past, and then we've got a whole mess of distrust and paranoia to untangle. We need to get that thing done at our own terms without these two morons getting in the way of things.

Just sic him to Julia instead. Let them solve whatever issues they might have, maybe it'll help them unwind - one way or the other - enough to safely interact with everyone else here.
No. 843795 ID: 33d4be

Ok, first, Chuck, first rule of talking about women with your bro: Stop. Look. Listen. Is there anyone in earshot who'll hear that you don't want to? Are you gonna talk about banging a mom and daughter and then find out one of them was right there behind a door or corner? Awareness, man. The whole town's packed in this house. Dense population, here. Arm around the shoulder, lower your voice.

Then give a little advice. "Jimmy, my man, this is the small town, here. Close community, people paying attention to each other, lotta gossip. Means the lonely ladies around here are cautious. Believe you me there are bunch of girls cravin' it hard but you know, just so you know, might not be any quick pickups like we do in the big stops."

"Now, that said, if you want bonafide bitches, I think of two girls right away: Naz, the librarian, cute little mouse chick, because she'd probably like being called a bitch, and second guess who you and my old friend who happens to be here? Julia."
No. 843796 ID: 33d4be

And before he goes make sure you pat him on the back and let him know you've been working your way in people's good sides for a while so do you a favour and not spill too much.

And you know what if you really trust him to keep his trap shut and you're sure there's no-one around then you can regale him with a few of your more impressive sexcapades because you're probably dying to brag about it to someone. The mom-daughter combo and getting in Susanna's bed were probably your biggest achievements. I mean, Susanna's some sort of for-reals actual legit mythical creature so you've got full rights to your title there, Mr. the Legend.

If we want Julia dead, let's at least make sure to minimize collateral damage. Don't want the girls to get hurt, don't want the house destroyed, don't want what weapons and supplies we have to be lost, and we absolutely don't want the protective enchantment on the house to be broken.

Now now, I'm sure he's called The Noose for a perfectly harmless reason. Took a job that needed a tie, maybe, and it was a joke about that, or maybe he once had a girlfriend with choking fetish (hello, Naz) or maybe he once busted a collar with that neck of his, or something. He's not necessarily some sort of serial strangulation murderer. Even if he has the hands and arms for it.

Jimmy seems to have enough sense too -- he was very respectful to John, and only stole out of desperation.

I don't think we have to worry about him flying off the handle. Hell, a he's big enough guy that if he wanted to escape he probably could have, so I'm guessing Jimmy's got a better tactical sense than Julia as well.

No doubt that he knows Julia stole his stuff and is playing it smart. He probably won't kill Julia until this mess is settled.

And if you let him know the Reverends are attracted to sin, my guess is he'll definitely not start anything until it's all settled.

I don't know. He seemed pretty insincere with that bit.

> >>843851 >never as bad as Julia
We just learned that Chuck was the top dog. You know? The leader of a criminal gang? So you can forget about arguing that Chuck's better than Julia or Jimmy.

It's nice that Chuck's changed but, if he really changed, then it's his duty to help his old friends change as well. Letting them hurt each other or even instigate such an event would only mean that the real monster, that should be locked outside, is none other than Chuck himself.

Guys, guys.

Even if Jimmy's got enough calmness and common sense to not immediately try murder, Julia sure as hell does not. She's going to fly off the handle the instant she sees him come in through the door. There's no telling what she will do or what the collateral damage will be.

What I'm saying is, we must do this immediately. It will be hilarious.

This is a ridiculous stretch of logic even by your standards, Delian.
No. 843866 ID: fbf7fe

Yeah, the vibe I'm getting from Jimbo is that he's smart enough to act nice, not that he actually IS nice.
But as >>843860 says, we got a duty to ourselves and our old friends to help them ease into the community. Or at least, not to let them do anything dangerous before we can get them out of the community.

"Shit is fucked here until the zombies, the Reverends, are dealt with. We won't survive this if we don't have everyone, townies, mayor, cops, even the baker, cooperating. Once it's done, I'll understand if you do what you gotta do. But before that, we all got do the teamwork thing."

He's going to steal our women! Good thing we pretty much called dibs there.
No. 843887 ID: 2474dd

No no, this is an opportunity to start double-teaming the women. If the lewd levels get high enough, surely it will make the reverend's heads burst.

Seems sensible. Jimmy is probably an asshole, but at least, he's an asshole who seems smart and collected enough not to get in trouble.

Still, try to learn what he has in mind (both concerning Julia and his immediate future) and stay with him until you can be more or less certain he won't start shit. I know we'd all much rather hang out with the ladies, but we must make sure we're not letting go of a time bomb here.

well, he was bound to find out sooner or later.

might be good to keep them separate. encourage jimmy to put a hold on their feud until they get out of coxwette.

You: "I don't know where she is right now. Just don't make a scene."

You: "I know it's hard not to with her."

Jimmy: "Don't worry. I just wanna ask her if she knows what happened to my car."

Jimmy: "I have a feeling she might."

You: "Just don't do anything rash."

Jimmy: "Don't worry so much, my man."

Jimmy: "I'm gonna find a shower. I've been on the road a while. Catch you later, big dog."

Jimmy starts trying doors until he finds a restroom.

Angela. We should ask if the students know they are not supposed to be in school today.

You stop in the hallway to take a breath. You never realized how stressful your old friends were. It was like a room with a bad smell in it that you just walked back into after a week away. Still, none of your lives were good back then, and those two were the only ones who really stuck with you. Now you've got a town full of people who care about you, and that doesn't really bother you as much as it did before. Maybe you'll go see Penny or Angela. Which one?
No. 844008 ID: be0718

Neither. Go see what Naz was gabbing about in the common room. You still need to recruit party members for your eventual counteroffensive, remember?

You find Penny on the third floor rumpus room, which you did not even know existed. It is a large, open room with a round rug and sofa in the middle. The walls are lined with shelves, and there is a dusty old piano against one of them. Penny hides the fact that she was yawning when you approach her.

Penny: "Hello there, hon."

You: "You look a little tired."

Penny: "Late night last night. I need my beauty sleep."

You: "Could've fooled me."

That gets a short-lived smile out of her.

Penny: "I never thanked you proper for bringing Marcie home. She'd have been dead without you."

You: "Anyone would have done the same."

She smiles again, but a silence follows.

Penny: "I know it..."


Penny: "must be hard for you. I could tell you really..."

Sit down on the sofa and tell her that it's frustrating, but it's enough to know that she's alive.
No. 844033 ID: 3ce125

No reason to give up yet, Penny. Unless Marcie did?

How much have they talked about what happened to her? Did Marcie say anything about you? Does she really remember nothing about you?
