Spooky Date Quest: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/836521.html

Barry has survived the Spooky Date Quest and Nem is keeping her promise of having a date with him!

Last time we left Barry he had just removed Freddy Falcone from his life once and for all and thus removed the threat to his life.

A week has passed since then. Things are better. Nem is going to take him on a date. She and Lilly seem to have resolved their love triangle most amicably and unless you royally screw this date up you're sure to have not only one but two cute, supernatural lady steadies in your life.

Better still they seem to be mutually attracted to each other. You are living a porn dream. Thank God for the Gaelish culture of it being totally OK to have a same-sex friend-with-benefit on the side.

You decide on "I've Got You Babe". It's well within both your vocal ranges.

When the music begins, you hear Moxy yell out "WE SAID WE WERE SORRY ALREADY!" but the mischievous grin on her face lets you know she's not serious.

The two of you are able to do a pretty decent job of the song.

You and Nem have each gained half a heart.

What would you like to do now?

A. Meet Nem's friends.
B. Sing another Duet.
C. Sing a song solo.
D. Suggest Nem sing a song solo.
E. Something else?

You suggest it's time to meet Nem's friends and she nods.

Nem: Sami and Amy are two of my closest friends at the Department. Remmington is a good friend too but he's busy at the restaurant and Rekki is off who-knows-where on assignment. Please excuse Sami if she gives you the eye of judgement; she's from Division 20 and that's what they do. Sami and Amy are a lesbian couple. A wee bit exhibitionist, too. Sami is the Rollish one -- er... she's the shorter one with red hair and a tail. Amy is Rollish too really, but her fae side is much more pronounced.

Sami and Amy smile when they see you, although Amy seems to be rather fond of embracing Sami from behind. They're wearing matching tube-tops. Amy's hair seems to be prehensile and she whispers something to Sami just as the two of you get close.

Sami: Hi, I'm Sami.

She offers her left hand which you shake. Sami's grip is firm and confident.

Amy smiles and snakes her arm up from up underneath Sami's and offers a handshake as well. Her grip is no less confident but far more feminine. You're guessing that she's the 'bottom'.

Amy: Amy the Seamstress.

Sami: Let's really just cut the shit, shall we? Barry, we are here to grill you and make sure you're worthy of our lovely friend Nem.

Nem puts her hands on her hips glares at Sami. Sami grins at her in response.

Sami: That's what good friends do, Nem.

Nem: I'm not some stupid little girl who needs a chaperone. Barry was my FRIEND long before we decided to become more intimate.

They both give Nem a surprised, inquisitive look. Nem catches herself and blushes.

Nem: ROMANTIC. We've not been intimate.

Sami smirks.

Sami: Nem, how many men have you been with? Or dated.

Nem's face remains a rosy pink.

Nem: No human males. One ambiguous sea creature.
Couple of thrill-seekers that went nowhere fast.

Sami: I have my history, Nem. I did more than date plenty.

Amy's brow furrows.

Sami: Plenty of players like Barry here. One or two OK guys, but most were assholes. None of them compared to Amy. I just want to make sure you find your "Amy". Or Amys, as the case may be, you lucky bitch. I don't want you to have to make the same mistakes I did.

Amy relaxes.

Amy: Please don't take this the wrong way, Nem. We're a little biased for sure, but we just want to make sure Barry will be as good for you as Lilly.

You turn sharply.

"Wait -- they met Lilly first?"

Nem shuffles her feet.

Nem: Well... yes. I thought perhaps I should get experts on same-sex love.

Sami: Passed with flying colours, I should add. She's a nut, but a good nut.

Amy: She reminds me a little of my mother, especially her outlook on her mortality. It's a key sign of maturity, a sign of being truly ready for love.

Sami: We are slightly disappointed that she's going to be the one to take Nem's girl-on-girl cherry though. Nem had a standing invitation.

Amy turns a deep red.

Nem: An INAPPROPRIATE invitation! You're ...

Sami interrupts her.

Sami: Yeah-yeah, and YOU were the one person Amy was OK with a threesome with. You missed the opportunity of a lifetime but hey, it's still your life, right?

Nem nods.

Nem: Indeed. It is still my life. Barry, you don't have to just stand here and be judged. I trust you.

You catch Sami glance at you and wink.

Sami: Look. He's going to become part of our social circle, right? I don't mean to be the looming figure of Judgement, especially since I can't loom over anything taller than 4 foot. We'd honestly like to meet him.

Nem: Well you're making a very poor first impression I think.

Nem gives you a concerned glance. It's apparent she's just as concerned about your reaction to her friends as she is her friends' reaction to you.

What do you do?

A. Not only are you OK with meeting them, but they can judge you all they want.

B. Let's get to know them but maybe ease up on the judgement.

C. They made a poor first impression and you're a little insulted. Why don't they try their hand at karaoke first (so you can discuss with Nem in private).

D. Clearly the best way to get to know each other is if we do a Spice Girls song together -- obviously the choice is "Wannabe". Maybe Alison or Moxy will take up the fifth spot.

E. Yes! You have so many questions. What is Division 20? How come Amy has prehensile hair? What is Rollish? How did they meet Nem? Do they know everyone else? Crazy adventures? Most importantly, DO THEY KNOW ANIME OR VIDEO GAMES?!

F. Something else?
No. 889085 ID: 0c3c2c

I am indecisive between B and C. They have been talking as if you weren't here. That's extremely unpleasant, and smacks of a sense of superiority.
No. 889089 ID: cefedd

I feel a bit more inclined toward a mix of A and B maybe with a dash of E.

The talking about him while he's there is certainly rude but I also feel Barry is pretty comfortable with who he is and wouldn't necessarily mind the "judgement" part.

The whole thing feels a bit more playful anyway rather than too hostile or judgemental. Only my interpretation though.
No. 889091 ID: 91ee5f

A mix of both A and B sounds like the right thing to do here.

Plus, they come off like they’re playfully interrogating us, so it’s nothing too serious.

You confidentially tell them they can judge you all they want while you get introduced. Sami grins and nods, then suggests getting a private booth.

Sami orders a bottle of whiskey and some shot glasses. Nem abstains, saying she's had enough. Sami shrugs.

Sami: I'm over the whole "desperately trying to get drunk or high" thing. I've got Amy. This is just because I still like a nice whiskey.

As you settle in, Nem rests her head on your shoulder. Her hair smells quite nice.

Sami: So Barry, you ready to be a father? I'm sure Nem's mentioned Macha by now.

You nod.

"Yeah, she mentioned Macha. I wouldn't mind having kids, actually. Grew up an only child and it got pretty lonely,"

You hear Nem sigh happily.

Sami: And speaking of family... are you really prepared to have in-laws that aren't human? And by that, I mean is your mom prepared?

"She'll... have to just deal with it. I love my mom, she loves me, she'll understand I love Nem. I guess the question is 'How will Nem's folks react to me'?"

Nem looks up and smiles confidently.

Nem: They'll adapt. Humans might go over better than you think, you look fae by our standards.

Amy nods.

Amy: So... Barry, what do you like to do? What are your hobbies? What are your dreams? Dreams are SO important to us.

You glance at Nem and see that her brow's furrowed.

How do you reply? Pick one only.


A. You ignored the question and asked Nem what's wrong.
B. You chose an INTEREST to tell them about first.
C. You chose a DREAM to tell them about first. This dream will have to be related to one of Barry's Interests, or can be related to raising a family with Nem.
D. You told them your interests but admit you don't know what your dream is yet.
No. 889185 ID: dbf422

C. And it's the same dream we told Nem about, right? The one about being a developer.
No. 889189 ID: 4ac5c6

Stop me if I'm a little too late to the party, but I think we could easily describe our Dream as wanting to make people happy. By letting them imagine that they could do or be whatever they want to do if only for a little bit.
No. 889218 ID: 2474dd

The game developer is something you wanted to do but never got the chance to. It's not required you name it as your "dream". People can have multiple dreams. You can still suggest it if that's what you'd like to do, of course.

There's a lot of ways wanting to make people happy 'for just a short while' can be interpreted - video games, writing stories and sex would all count. They're probably looking for something more concrete.

You explain to Sami and Amy that you'd like to become a real author -- not just someone who's coasting on controversial and lurid tales of being seduced by a spook as a minor, but someone whose material is valued on its merits alone.

They nod appreciatively but as you explain your dream, you feel Nem shrink away.

"Baby, what's wrong?"

Nem sighs and looks at you sadly.

Nem: I don't have a dream. Someone my age is supposed to have a dream but I don't and I hate it.

You steal a quick glance at the girls to see what they think -- Sami is watching you with interest while Amy is giving Nem a sympathetic look.

What do you do? (Pick One only)

A. Try to reassure her: "It'll be fine, Baby. Sometimes dreams take time to figure out,"
B. Try to help her figure out her dream: "You like to draw, maybe that's something you should put more time into,"
C. Try to be sympathetic: "I'm sorry, Baby. You know I got your back, just let me know what I can do to help,"
D. Get her talking, maybe it could help: "Maybe it's just me but I don't understand. You're smart and adventurous and you like doing lots of stuff, what's the different between doing what you like and your dream?"
No. 890461 ID: ae8ec4

If you're happy with what you have without a dream, I don't think there is a need to pressure yourself to find one.

I thought her goals were "move up the Department of Change until she becomes a stereotypical Busty-Hawt Director" and "raise a family of little goat girls".
No. 890471 ID: 91ee5f

I want to tell her, “If you can’t figure out a dream, then maybe you’ve already achieved your dream without realizing it?”

The only problem is, I don’t know which one of these choices will allow that!
No. 890479 ID: dbf422

That's like saying "if you can't remember, then it must not have been important" but for like, her life dream. Not in those words, but its a gamble whether or not it'll be an epiphany or taken poorly, and thus probably a smidge demoralizing.

D. Follow-up being that a dream can be as simple as an ideal career, or a happy relationship.

>Not in those words, but its a gamble whether or not it'll be an epiphany or taken poorly, and thus probably a smidge demoralizing.
Well if that’s the case, then ignore what I said.

Instead, I’ll vote for D and agree with what you said.

You decide to get Nem talking, hoping it might help her work through whatever is bothering her.

"Maybe it's just me but I don't understand. You're smart and adventurous and you like doing lots of stuff, what's the different between doing what you like and your dream?"

Nem begins to explain the difference.

Nem: There's interests and then there are DREAMS, Barry. I was taught that we're born from dreams, and each of us has a special dream at our very core that our soul's whole purpose was to realize. If you don't know your Dream, then you are lost and your life is for naught. All I've been done since I turned 17 was to work towards releasing my family from their debt with Death -- which I later learned was the 13th Division.

What begins with a trickle from a crack bursts through the dam and becomes a torrent. Nem talks about her people's culture and religious beliefs and how they were torn down from her work with the 13th. She talks about her first few assignments where she got to experience first hand what happens when she puts down an immortal faerie spirit who had 'lived too long', how flawed they were, and how far they had strayed from their 'core dream'. Sometimes they were even grateful to have been put down, because it released the dream trapped inside a form more concerned with retaining life and power over purpose.

She talks at length about trying to figure out a new faith after not only being shown the flaws in her old religion but personally experiencing what it was like to destroy it.

You glance over at the girls. Amy is definitely empathetic, while Sami is still more interested in how you are reacting. She raises an eyebrow and smirks at you as if to say "Your move".

Nem is still talking.

What do you do?

A. You let her talk. Oh God, do you let her talk. But eventually the torrent subsides and she's spent. This will be something you'll just have to learn to deal with.

B. You let her talk and take her hand while she does and patiently wait for her to finish. You don't really know how to solve this but you can still provide emotional support.

C. You listen with great interest. This is stuff you've always wanted to know about spooky chicks, and you occasionally interrupt with questions.

D. You deduce that Nem's actual issue is that she is having a crisis of faith. At the first chance of a break, you bring this up.

E. You deduce that Nem's actual issue is that she is having a crisis of faith, but you're not going to say anything unless she asks you. You take her hand to lend support.

You say nothing and just hold her hand, but you have your answer if she asks you what you think. Her friends just let her talk, with Amy adding occasional insight but Sami keeps her mouth shut.

Eventually, Nem just sighs -- she's out of words but still pent up. Finally, she looks you in the eyes.

Nem: What's wrong with me? Why don't I have a dream?

"Baby, nothing's wrong with you. You're having a spiritual crisis 'cause what your people taught you isn't hold'n up anymore. I've been there three times now. Once when my dad walked out on us, again when I met Freddy, and again when I met you. Nothing I've been taught by school, science or church stands up to what I've been through. My atheist friends thought that once we were dead, that's it. But they're wrong...,"

Sami interrupts with a smile.

Sami: Just for the record, you can know souls exist or that there's an afterlife and still be an atheist. It's just an extra stage of existence, doesn't mean there's any gods looking out for us.

Amy sighs.

Sami: I'm not saying it disproves it, I'm just say'n it doesn't prove it either.

Amy smirks and pinches Sami.

You continue.

"Same time, nothing in church matches up to what I've experienced either. Lilly might be some sort of devil but she's a good person,"

This time Amy interrupts.

Amy: "Devil" is more an occupation, like "dragon". Lilly is politically neutral now.

"See what I mean? Church tells me that there's A Devil, but now I just found out it's just a job description,"

Nem nods.

Nem: So... what did you do? How did you make sense of it? What about your faith?

You shrug.

"Just do what my mom told me. Use my head to deal with the things I can understand, and anything beyond me I just leave in God's hands. There's no point in worrying about stuff I can't change or understand. I just trust in God's Will and do my best.
God might not save my life, but Jesus will save my soul and that's the important part,"

Sami begins to open her mouth but then stops herself.

"What's up, Sami?"

Sami: Well, I was gonna mention that Amy and I work with the dead a lot but I've never ran into anyone named Jesus on the job. The only actual souls we ever have to help tend to be ones trapped by Curse, and we don't deal with humans. But I don't want to trivialize your faith either, especially if it gives you comfort or hope. I never take hope from anyone if I can avoid it.

"I take it you're an atheist,"

Sami: All I know is the only other people that help us out are Redeemers and they're no angels. Everyone in the Department of Change that I know of is either mortal or plans to be, and we have a division that hunts down immortals. Doesn't really seem to support an idea of an all-knowing, immortal high god very well.

Amy: Unless you count the fact that the Department of Change works at all despite the fact that the leaders seem quite mad and ... we're not quite sure where the funding comes from.

Sami shrugs. You turn back to Nem.

"Like I said, Baby. Shit that's wack like that I just leave in God's hands and deal with what I know. Someone's looking out for you, when the time's right you'll figure out your dream,"

Nem thinks about this and smiles slightly. Then she leans back against you and rests her head on your shoulder. Sami nods and gives you a warm smile.

You have gained a heart.

No. 890800 ID: 094652

There's no point in worrying about stuff I can't change or understand
There's every point in worrying and preparing about stuff you might be able to eventually change or understand.

>Entire government is about neutralizing immortals
>Yet the funding is stable and comes from somewhere
I think this is all one big project and immortals inside the project screw it up in the long run, so they're dealt with before they can use their aeons-old wisdom to take control. As opposed to the immortals outside of the project who are directly controlling the whole project.

Nem: I want to sing a song. Solo. Do you mind?

You tell her to go right ahead.

As she goes up to the stage, Sami looks over at you and smirks.

Sami: You DID bring protection, right lover-boy?

Amy leans against Sami and then back over the couch.

Amy: Nem's giving off so many pheromones it's driving me crazy. Sami? What do you think?

Sami grins.

Sami: You're an honorable man and you genuinely adore her. I hope you two have a blast, but no offence to Macha but I don't want to meet her nine months from now. You got me?

Amy: We don't want to play the nag but my goodness that is one intense aroma.

You didn't smell anything. You get the feeling Amy's the only one who can. Any more thought is interrupted by Nem's song starting up.

Nem is singing "Hungry Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran and watching you for a reaction.

You maintain eye contact and after Nem has finished her song you wolf whistle.

Nem smiles.

Nem: C'mon Barry. It's time we take that nature walk.

Nem leads you away from the karaoke bar and to the outskirts of the village where you enter the forest. The sun is setting, and the air is just beginning to cool. The smell of pine, damp earth and musk fill the air. Tiny lights dance in the fading light.

Twigs crack under your feet as you try to keep pace with Nem -- she's practically pulling you along a difficult path. She's much more nimble than you are and she has to slow down so you can navigate the twists and uneven ground without losing your balance.

"Where we going in such a hurry, Baby?"

Nem gives you a shy smile.

Nem: I just want to show you something. My wolf form. You've never seen it. Where I come from, it's terribly frightening because wolves are a sign of death. They're not the same as the pack animals of earth, which are awfully cute. I don't want to frighten anyone, but I don't think it will frighten you, will it? You have a thing for the dark, which is why I want to show you. I think you're the first person I've met who'd be interested in both my sides.

This is more or less an ongoing cutscene but you can still suggest, comment, award hearts, etc and things will be incorporated as they go within reason.

Nem takes a few paces away from you and then looks over her shoulder with a sultry smile.

The shadows intensify around her body. They distort and surround her and as the red in her eyes begins to become stronger until their shine becomes a glow.

She becomes mist-like for a few moments, and she draws herself inwards. In a moment, her dress flutters to the ground and a wolf-like creature made of shadow sits next to it.

She picks up her dress in her maw and watches you intelligently and begins to lead you deeper into the woods.

You follow her, noticing how silent everything is now and the realization that Nem is probably considered an apex predator dawns on you as a reason for the other fauna to be so quiet.

That notion is somewhat worrying but due to Barry's nightmare fetish, more exciting than anything else.

Eventually, you come to a clearing. Nem pads up to a soft hill covered in moss and grass where she has set up a blanket and a couple of pillows. She watches you closely, probably trying to judge a reaction.

As you being to approach, Nem lets go of her dress. In a moment, she is standing before you and as naked as the day she was born. Her hair is unbound and flowing -- now that she doesn't have it tied back you're a little surprised by how much she really has. She gathers a little in one hand to cover her nethers and strikes a similar pose as Aphrodite in the "Birth of Venus". The moonlight plays on her features and curves.

As you get closer and begin to loosen your clothing, her facade of a seductress breaks down and she turns and blushes uncontrollably.

Nem: I'm sorry! This ... this is about as far as I ... planned this. I... um... you... you need to take it from here.

Barry's had lots of experience with girls but this is his first time with a virgin so he takes things very slow. He introduces her to simple kissing at first -- Nem is initially timid but then too forceful and she paws clumsily between his legs.

"Whoah now, you need to relax, Baby. There's no rush, right?"

She nods, and they try again with Barry gently explaining for her to follow his lead. He uses his hands to explore and test her, judging her sensitivities and where she is most responsive. This in turn reveals that Nem is pretty much well sensitive everywhere.

When he feels it's time, he begins to undress slowly for her. Her eyes watch with feral intensity, but after he is exposed she begins to stalk closer. Nem looks up at him as if to ask for permission.

Barry smiles.

"It's OK Baby, you can touch me,"

Note: When the narration says "Barry" over "you" it means that Barry himself is acting on his own.

Nem inches closer and gently strokes him with her fingertips while watching how he reacts with fascination. She tentatively traces her tongue across the tip before exploring him with her mouth.

She is surprisingly good at it, but almost certainly accidentally. It's more her willingness to to explore that makes it stimulating.

She pauses.

Nem: How was that? I just... I was curious to what you tasted like.

Barry smiles and kisses her more soundly before returning the favour. He might not be able to directly smell her pheromones but she is extremely wet and before long he knows it is more than time to take her.

Barry fumbles for his condom, but Nem places her hands over his gently.

Nem: ... no. I want to feel YOU.

"Baby, I've been warned that if I go in without protection we're going to be meeting Macha real soon,"

Nem: It's OK... just... pull out. I...

She looks down.

Nem whispers: ... I want you to finish on my breasts. I want to see it.

"I can still do that with a raincoat, Baby"

Nem: I just want my first time to be... as real ... as possible.

A. You need to take control. Nem's not thinking clearly, you're barely thinking clearly enough to remember the condom. It's for the best.

You try to brush her hair away from her eyes, which works for about a second before the wild curly mass flips back into place.

"Baby, you're trying too hard to make it memorable. You gotta relax, and just trust me. And it's going to be easier to relax with a little protection."

Nem is disappointed but relents and lets Barry warms her up again. She watches with fascination as Barry puts on the condom and then lets him ease her back onto the blanket.

As he kisses her, he positions himself and guides things slowly as to not hurt her, but Nem is both extremely slick and seems to handle things quite well despite a little gasp. She feels very good -- very snug, wet, and hot. Hotter than Nikki, but not the intense heat of Lilly. Tighter than M, but still giving and without what could almost be described as a tough intensity of Red.

But her expression reminds you of someone who is counting internally while dancing instead of just going with the rhythm.

"Baby, you look like you're counting,"

Barry kisses her as she furrows her brow.

Nem: Am I doing something wrong?

"You're not relaxing,"

She pauses.

Nem: I... I just want to be your best, that's all.


Nem: You've been with lots of women before me. I want to be the best of them.

"But you are,"

Nem: I want to be sure.

"Just relax, OK?"

Nem: OK.

A few strokes later and Barry begins to chuckle.

Nem: What?!

"You're still not relaxing."

Nem: No, I am!

"I can tell by your face. You're concentrating."

Nem: ... ... I'm... just doing kegels.

"Kegel exercises?"

Nem: I did research.

Barry stares at Nem with a mixture of incredulousness and mirth.

"... research?"

Nem: And I practiced. With toys. I ... remembered how big you are so I bought a large toy so I would be ready.

Nem's brow furrows with embarassment.

Nem: I just wanted to be your best.

Barry chuckles warmly and kisses her firmly.

"Baby, you're are the only person in the world who would treat her first time like a final exam just to please her man. That alone makes you the best. You are amazing, Nem."

Nem smiles relaxes and Barry takes the opportunity to thrust, making her gasp.

"That's how you relax. I think we're going to need to do things a little different,"

Nem begins to ask Barry what he means but he begins to kiss down her neck and breasts, down to belly.

Nem: But... but I want you inside me...

"I will eventually,"

Nem: But...

"I think you need to relax first and this will help,"

As Barry moves down, Nem runs her fingers through his hair. She cooperates but then pushes him away.

"What's wrong?"

Nem: Don't let me push you away.


Nem: Fight me. I need you to take control.

She looks away, blushing again despite already being quite flushed.

Nem: ... I... brought some rope.

Barry raises an eyebrow.

What follows involves Nem's legs being trussed up and spread with the help of some nearby trees, and her arms tied carefully but firmly behind her back. Barry is a little concerned about her comfort but the look on her face is one of fire. There is none of the counting, none of the concentration, none of the clincical approach to sex. Her breathing is heavy and the moonlight dances in her eyes.

Barry makes sure to thoroughly stimulate her with digital and oral skills and as Nem's cries begin to become more frequent she begins to beg for penetration again.

Nem: I want... want you to vukk me! VUKK ME!! Please, please!!

He briefly wonders where the accent came from but feels this time Nem will be truly ready. She would later explain the slang refers to planing vulknut -- its hard seed prefers to be buried deep in the soil. Fortunately Barry was able to figure out the context enough to 'vukk her' indeed.

Nem is stronger than she looks, and despite being tied up fairly tightly, one of her leg gets free and thrashes about wildly. He manages to grab it and getting the feel for what Nem wants, he grips it tightly and forces her legs farther apart.

There's a splash and Nem lets out a long, loud but almost musical cry that makes some of the birds scatter. It's almost but not quite a wolf howl -- more like a very loud, very long, very drawn out call.

The effect is electric; seeing her feral side pushes Barry to the edge and he knows he won't be able to pull out in time and remove the condom for Nem to get her show. So instead, he just thrusts with more vigor and trusts the rubber do its job.

They lie together for several minutes, allowing themselves to calm down and the night air to cool them. Barry notes that he is drenched down to his knees in what is a combination of sweat and her juices. Nem's a squirter.

Nem impishly says at last: ... you didn't finish on my breasts.

"Sorry Baby, you were too good. I couldn't help it,"

Nem titters most pleased. She leans over, wraps her arms around him and kisses him. Barry didn't get the chance to untie her wrists; she must have gotten out on her own. Interesting.

"I wonder if they heard you in the village,"

Nem laughs. She would later find out they did and wasn't as embarrassed as you thought she might be about that fact.

Nem: ... did you wanna try to hit your mark again?

In the months that follow, Nem seems to be getting less assignments. She tells you that the 13th Division has had her doing more log work than anything else; writing down her experiences and advice. It frees her time up for more dating -- both with you and with Lilly. Nem is a passionate lover and her vigor on your first date is just the tip of the iceberg -- she is intensely curious about every aspect of sex and willing to try once just about anything Barry or Lilly can think of.

In the meantime, Barry begins to write a book about the power of love -- not a tawdry tale of demonic lust, but the enormous impact of love on the supernatural creatures that are now part of human soceity. How it makes them willing to give up their immortality, how it can kill them, how they desparately desire it and how they are terrified of it.

The Department of Change even invites him to use their case files and tell the stories of spooks who found love and gave everything up for it. It turns out that the hard part is finding the case themselves; the DoC's idea a filing system involves mining through a cavern of words. Almost literally.

They pay well however -- they have Barry publish the book for free (fae are quite big on the freedom of ideas) and compensate him with a considerable amount of cash and resources.

More than enough to purchase a lovely engagement ring for Nem and ask her to marry him. She says "yes" of course.

And it turns out this is the release for her contract. She is free, and her family debt is paid. While officially retired from the 13th Division, Nem is told she is welcome to take on any jobs she would like.

Nem: Pardon my vulgarity, but fuck that.

Meeting Barry's Family

Barry warns Nem of his mother Martha's understandable prejudice towards spooky girls.

The very first thing she does is go on about how horrible the spooks are, how they're aligned with the devil, and how they almost killed her only son.

Nem nods and patiently lets her go on until she asks her to recite the Lord's Prayer with her. Nem agrees and she scrutinizes her as she repeats the words. She then offers her a crucifix which Nem puts on.

Then Martha grills her on how she met Barry, with Nem explaining honestly while leaving out details such as the porn blog or The Show.

Nem explains her work with the DoC and how it was her job to put down immortals who had lived too long, which was how she was able to warn Barry that he was in danger. Martha asks for more details but Nem explains that as usual, her boss was pretty vague on the details of which division knew about it -- explaining that the DoC doesn't primarily deal with mortals because their limited lifespans means that they don't cause the same problems immortals do.

She presses Nem on her intentions and Nem excitedly and rather girlishly talks about finally being able to settle down and raise a family.

Martha asks if she'll be raising the children Christian, to which Nem replies she doesn't know what that means. This results in a long and lengthy discussion about Christianity as well as Nem's shaken faith due to her occupation. Nem promises that if it means so much to her she will make sure the children will be taught the Bible and offers to bring them over to visit Grandma to do it.

After the visit, both Nem and Barry's mom speak privately to him for their impressions on the other.

Nem thinks Martha is a good, strong woman who reminds her of her father.

"Not your mom?"

Nem shakes her head.

Nem: I love my mother, and I have forgiven her for keeping me so ignorant for so long, but I have not forgotten what she did. I think my father would have been more up-front if he had known.

Barry's mother was clearly charmed by Nem.

Martha: That girl might have to work with devils, but she's clearly kept herself safe. I think she wants to be saved. Did you hear that child talk about having to kill her false gods? She's lost, she's open to the word of the Lord and I think Heaven would be happy to take her in. She seems to be one of the most honorable, well mannered long ladies I have ever met. The poor girl needs the one God she can't kill and we could introduce her to one.

Barry is respectful but internally rolling his eyes. While he believes in God, he also doesn't think Nem needs to be "saved" -- just like none of his spooky friends are devils or need to be "saved". But his mother is a little old-school and she's done so much for him he won't say a thing.

Martha: Did you hear her talk about grandchildren? Boy, you're actually gonna give me grandchildren? Little half-goat kids? Hah! I said goat kids.

"Nem's hinted she'd like quite a few children,"

Martha: Well, you were a handful all by yourself. You need some help, you call on me, OK? I can't imagine what a half-Barry, half-Nem supernatural spooky child will be like to raise.

"Nem's not really all that spooky. She sort of just works in a spooky job.
Her family is... from what I've told, she comes from a sort of faerie world where humanity is long-gone and they don't have indoor plumbing and her dad is a blacksmith. But they have a magical Internet,"

Martha stares at her son. He shrugs helplessly in response.

Martha: She adapted pretty well to Boston for a girl what grown up in some kinda faerie-tale land.

"Nem's really smart. Plus she's had four years and help from the Department of Change,"

Martha sighs and shakes her head.

Martha: Guess it was too much to hope you'd find a nice normal girl after that nasty business with that Freddy devil.

"Nem and some spooky friends helped save me from Freddy, don't forget that,"

His mom huffs.

Martha: Yeah, yeah, I know. Not ALL them spooky types are devils. What, they faeries then?

Barry thinks for a moment. He could explain that no, a 'devil' is an occupation and 'faerie' is just a catch-all for any metaphysical creature. But it'd be a lot easier to just tell her that faeries are nice and devils are bad and leave it at that.

"Yeah, basically,"

Martha: But those faeries still pose as false idols.

"But Nem's a MORTAL faerie. So's our friend who helped save me, and Red, who's like... a spooky cop or something. So as long as they're mortal, they've given up on stuff like that."

Martha: They found The Lord?

"More like they really understand love. It's going to be my new book,"

Martha pauses in thought.

Martha: I guess that's good enough. God is love, after all.

Barry internally breathes a long sigh of relief. Well, that's done. Now all he has to do is meet Nem's family. Hopefully it won't be as difficult, but they've never seen a human being before.


Also don't forget that besides suggestions for Nem's married life I'm always looking for feedback on the writing. I don't do a lot of love scenes so by all means, let me know what you think.

Meeting Nem's Family

Despite a little awkwardness, Barry felt that the meeting went surprisingly easy. Meeting Nem's family turned out to be easier still.

While worried about the fact that Barry is human, her parents are just flatly thrilled that Nem is getting married at all. Barry is instantly welcomed to her family and by her community. The only real point of curiosity they seem to have is the size of his ears. Nem's mother Aoife (Pronounced "Ee-ffa", it's Irish) had a habit of continually playing with Barry's ears.

Aoife: They're such wee things! Such cute wee things!

When they discover that you helped release her from her contract, he is hailed as a hero.

Lilly never meets Barry's mother for obvious reasons -- Nem is one thing, but Lilly formerly being a devil is thought to be a bit much, and they have no plans on sharing their true status with her.

Since Gaelish customs allow a second, same-sex spouse (the "Unoo-us") it is expected that Lilly be introduced. Given her fae background, she has a sort of demigod status within the village and there's no troubles there either. Barry notes that Lilly's horns are apparently something sexy-flashy within the Gaelish community as Nem's not the only one who is enamored with them.

The food sucks though. Barry is a little relieved that Nem would rather live in his world, and amused that the primary reason for this decision was indoor plumbing and good toilet paper.

Barry loses a considerable amount of weight as Nem takes him exploring nature on Earth, in her world and occasionally for an adventure in some of Lilly's choice locations. At Nem's request he also grows a beard.

At Barry's request, Nem trims her Godiva-length hair down to a more manageable shoulder-length. He's never quite able to introduce Nem to ear-rings. Lilly introduces Nem to make-up but she still usually doesn't wear much beyond her usual lipstick unless they're going someplace fancy.

After the weddings, the honeymoon is arranged in Necropolis, Pepperland -- the country formerly known as North Korea. Despite the ominous name, the city is beautiful and modern if more than a little strange. Most of the stories you had heard about the place turn out to be fabrications or propaganda except for the stories of the old regime being used in some sort of questionable spooky engine. Probably the thing that takes the longest to get used to is the sheer number of 'undead' that live there -- former humans ranging from almost ordinary looking people to nightmarish individuals. From what you gathered, there's a very sparse fully human population left in the Necropolis -- most have changed. Lilly explains humanity and faeries influence each other and that the Necropolis is effectively a faerie domain now so most people who live there change under the influence.

You ask about the name. Nem explains that according to the DoC's records that the take-over started from within the political prisons and they were initially secured by a sort of undead called "Redeemers". The dead played such a large part in the take over that it just seemed appropriate for the country's new capital.

As to the country's name -- apparently the leaders liked "Yellow Submarine" and felt that restoring a miserable dystopia back to a "Pepperland" would be a good goal.

Married, With Children

It's on this honeymoon that Macha was conceived. It's not really a big surprise considering the wild nights Barry spends with Nem and Lilly. Nem keeps insisting that she's long over-due to have a child despite being only 21, but you remember how even the little girl she rescued was married with children when you visited Nem's village. That and you recall something about Macha being rather impatient to be born.

You also recall Nem warning you that Macha would be a colossal pain in the ass, which she proves to be. It's a good thing Lilly's there to help.

Despite all that, Barry's heart melts every time he watches her sleep. She is his first born, and will always be his little girl -- even if she seems to mostly just take after her mom in looks. She will be fiercely protective of her sibblings when they come along, despite how much she torments them.

Married life is an adventure. Macha tries to be a pint-sized terror at times but Nem still seems to maintain a presence of authority around her.

The other children arrive. They're healthy and happy, a gift to any parent. They even manage to soften up Clay who becomes their pediatrician. She still refuses to live too close to humanity for fear of them changing her, but she seems to make exceptions for Nem's family.

Then surprisingly, Lilly gets pregnant. You would think that someone who's not supposed to be biologically compatible with Barry would be a bit more surprised at carrying his child, but Lilly just shrugs.

Lilly: Oy, well... I guess if this is my last life I might as well get the full experience, y'know? Honestly I figured it'd happen eventually n' all. You can fuck for fun all ya want, but for metaphysical types it don't matter how much rubbah you put between us, once we get serious someone's gonna have a baby.

Barry points out that he never used a condom with Lilly anyway. Lilly explains she's just stating a fact -- she figured with enough time and love, this would happen eventually anyway. The conversation does turn a bit mechanical, with Barry asking about various practices and how it could possibly result in a baby. That's when Nem and Lilly refer back to the fact that even holding hands with a spooky girl could be considered 'unprotected intimacy'.

It sends Clay into a panic, but Lilly's child is born without issue into the growing family.

It becomes readily apparent that the three of them will be raising a large family -- and with Nem retired on a fat pension, Lilly being a freelancer and the relaxed pace of Barry's successful writing career, they'll have plenty of time to make sure the kids are raised right.

Even if Lilly does still have an annoying habit of pulling a mad scientist trope or two.

Nem finally realizes that her dream is one of exploration and adventure, something her family provides -- and not just in the normal sense that raising children is an adventure, either. Macha's rebellious nature actually gives her a sense of peace -- while she still worries like any mother, she also appreciates the fact that she is free and she has so much to explore with her kindred spirits Barry and Lilly.

While Nem's Quest is finally at an end, she and her family have plenty of more adventures awaiting them!

Thank-you for Reading Spooky Date: Nem's Promise!

This now sets several canon aspects of Nem's story, even if I decide to re-write her tale to be more streamlined with the refined story mechanics. She will always eventually wind up with a chubby adventurous dark nerd named Barry, and Lilly will always show up in some form to join them.

In addition, I'll be leaving the look and gender of Lilly's first baby up to Quest. There's a great number of available mutations for a half-blood, especially a first generation with someone as freshly mortal as Lilly.

I'm also going to leave at least one of Nem's children up to Quest. Macha, Pan and Preston are already canon.
