I trust Ichigo to deliver Chopper to Troy to talk. You still have to finish your delivery for Ada, she may actually be getting worried that you are taking so long. It was supposed to be a fast job, it's starting to get dark.

>That obsidian dissolved when the skull was destroyed by Ichigo.

>Ichigo proposes that he deliver Chopper to Troy, who is currently at your house, while you go back to Dawnsprings to deliver the package. That or you can talk to Troy about the whole thing later. It's up to you.
Yeah, let Ichigo take Chopper to meet Troy. This meeting should happen now instead of later. Ask if Ichigo needs directions to get to your house?

Just ask Ichigo to make sure Chopper and Troy don’t try to kill each other. If they do start fighting, don’t let them break anything at your house. And if he needs to, he can force both of them to sit still and talk to each other.

Meanwhile, you’re going to finish delivering Ada’s package to her, pick up Vol in town, and then you’ll come home. If nothing is broken and nobody is dead by the time you arrive, you’ll take that as a good sign that everyone got along.

Ichigo seems capable enough to handle it. Let's finish that delivery.

You decide that Ichigo could just go and show Chopper where Troy is and intervene if anything goes wrong. You tell Ichigo how to get to your house and to show Chopper the way. You allow Chopper to construct another one of his big voodoo skull things to ride on the way their with the confidence that Ichigo can cut it in half with a flick of his wrist. Ichigo on the other hand does not mount a vehicle, instead he just...runs. He runs so fucking fast though, almost as fast as your Arges. Speaking of your Arges you're glad it didn't get busted in all the commotion. You mount up and continue for Dawnsprings package in tow...

You reach the Lila Palast and meet with Ada.

ADA: Roland! Vhat took you so long? Vith the modifications to your bike it should have been a quick trip.

You explain the stall you had on the way here.

ADA: Oh no! But you are fine? Yes?
YOU: Yeah I'm okay, it wasn't too bad.
ADA: And you have zhe package?
YOU: Yup!

You hand the package over to Ada who looks it over before unwrapping the front of it. You don't get to see what it is but Ada appears extremely happy to have it in her hands and puts it away.

ADA: Zhank you so much Roland! You would not believe how many ozher couriers return objects with scratches or dents. I'm glad I got zhis in one piece!
YOU: What is it?
ADA: Do not vorry about it, it is a personal zhing.

We had to fight with a voodoo guy while delivering a package, and WE'RE the ones who get it back unscratched? What the heck were the other couriers doing to get them roughed up?

Anyway, let's go to Vol. Kick open the library doors and say "guess who just got a hovercar and kicked a voodoo assassin's ass with it!?"

“Is it for the robot?”

Anyways, now that you’ve delivered that to Ada, ask her if there’s anything else she wants you to do? If she says no, then tell her that you’ve gotta go, but if she ever needs help with that robot, she just needs to ask and you’ll help her.

Or, you know, if she just wants to hang out anytime, you’d also like to do that with her.

>We had to fight with a voodoo guy while delivering a package, and WE'RE the ones who get it back unscratched? What the heck were the other couriers doing to get them roughed up?

ADA:...Sort of? But also not really.
YOU: So, even after getting attack in the middle of the desert I got your stuff back better than other couriers?
ADA: It vould appear so! Somezhing is always scratched or broken vhen anyone else does it, and I can never get a refund on zhe cards I spent so I end up going to get my own packages, but zhat takes time!
YOU: Well, If you need help again, with the robot or with deliveries I'd be happy to help!
ADA: Zhat is good to hear, it is always good to have somebody you can rely on!

You say your goodbyes and drive over to The Hollow Garden where Vol is.

At the front you see Vol curled up on the front counter and Hazel reading a book next to him. When she sees you she says hello and gently shakes Vol to wake him up.

VOL: *YAWN*...Roland? Dat took longer than I thought it would, where ya been?

You explain what's happened to him since you left.

VOL:...Ya sent some stranger to see where our house is? Actually scratch dat ya sent TWO strangers to see where our house is???
No. 907711 ID: d3602f

Yes. But I feel Ichigo is pretty trustworthy, and the other one doesn't seem bright enough to pull anything.

“If you’re that worried about it, we can head over there right now. Did you remember to pick out your reward for helping Hazel translate those books?”

Something tells me that Vol is gonna punish you for this by not letting you do one of those rituals he was talking about!

Hey, Roland, remember how you said Vol didn’t like it when you tried to do tricks on the Skipper? Well now he’s going to absolutely hate it when you try to do tricks on the Arges! Just make sure you tell him to hold on tight so he doesn’t go flying off your back!

YOU: Well Ichigo's not a stranger, but if you're so worried than we can get going right away. I want you to see my new ride anyway!
VOL: You're what?

You and Vol wave goodbye to Hazel,who thanks the two of you for your help, and you leave the library. Vol is startled by the drastic changes to what used to be your skipper seemingly awe struck by the upgrades. You mount up and return home. Before you get home you remember to ask.

YOU: So what books did you get as a reward from Hazel?
VOL: Um...Well first I got dat grimoire wit da spells in it, and I got dis otha book she had lyin' around. "Hemocrafin' Methods", Demons don't really got dedicated printin' presses so I guess somebody wrote dis then lost it somehow. It's only got like 2 chapters done so da rest is blank, but I'll just fill da rest in as we go.

>As you approach your house...you hear a lot of noise.
Either they’re having a party to celebrate a newfound partnership or they’re in the middle of beating the shit out of each other and Ichigo, with all his superhuman strength, wasn’t able to make them behave themselves. If it’s the latter, then hopefully there isn’t any damage to your house or at the very least, the damage is minimal.

Well, there’s only one way to find out. Get over to your house while hoping for the best outcome and preparing for the worst outcome.

How much of it is rhyming?

Adjust plan accordingly.
No. 907733 ID: 91ee5f

Also, be prepared for Vol to tell you that he told you letting other people come to your house was a bad idea.

And since Vol is still technically your older brother, if there has been any damage to the house, be prepared for him to tell you that you’re grounded from doing any demon research for a certain amount of time.
No. 907734 ID: 10c408

If he grounded us from doing demon research the only thing that'll happen is a sitcom disaster cycle where we can only make friends and invite them into our house.

>How much of it is rhyming?
...Almost all of it. When you approach closer to get near Troy's car you see the two oddballs belting out dope rhymes as one of Troy's records spins behind them. Troy looks tipsy...scratch that motherfucker looks straight up drunk as he slurs out his rhymes. Chopper looks about the same way except he manages to keep a coherent rhyme scheme which is impressive, then again you don't think he's physically capable of speaking in anything other than rhymes.

Ichigo leaves your house holding a plate of what looks like cake slices. You don't own any batter or sugar so you assume he just used your kitchen and brought his own ingredients. You and Vol approach in time to get a slice too and talk with the group.

VOL: Wat da hells goin' on here?
ICHIGO: oh i'm not entirely sure, i dropped chopper off to talk to troy then i went to bake cake...the next thing i knew they were doing...that.
VOL: ...Dese two new ones...dey ain't stayin' 'ere are dey???

Vol reaches up to the plate of cake and grabs a slice biting into it.

VOL:...Alright dis tall one's fine but I ain't sure about da weird face paint one.
No. 907741 ID: bcc134

I let chopper come here to sort things out with troy and ichigo’s probably got his own place to stay.
Don’t worry vol, this place isn’t going to become it’s own community... probably.

Chopper tried to kill you using a skull while running at high speeds so he's a fine person and he can stay any time he wishes.

No. 907760 ID: d3602f

I like Ichigo, and Chopper seem okay, but they probably don't have any reason to stay here unlike Troy. They've got their own homes.

Now, how about we join in on the fun? Think we could add some violin to what they are playing?
No. 907761 ID: eeb7d9

Did they just bond... through music? Sick!

> ...Dese two new ones...dey ain't stayin' 'ere are dey???
Well, as long as they can pay the bill, i don't see the problem here! But in all seriousness, these two are not bad people, i can tell. And Chopper atacked me by mistake, but stoped. But the other underlings of Channing wont be so forgiving. They will try to kill us just to get to Troy. And they will come in numbers. I want to help Troy, and in order to do that, we need more alies. If Chopper wants to stay, i am fine with that, he can choose. Besides, they can help us with my research of demons. Some day, i will face demons too powerfull to deal with just us two alone, but if we have friends, we will have more chances. I am being too greedy?
No. 907766 ID: 91ee5f

Before we go talk to Troy and Chopper, let’s ask Ichigo why he lied to you about how he got to Crud City earlier.

He could’ve just told you that he could run really fucking fast and just told you it was from his mutations, along with his really cool claws and teeth. You would’ve believed him if he told you that.

Then after that, let’s go talk to the 2 drunken rappers and see what they’ve talked about.....if they’re not already too drunk to speak clearly.

Between being drunk and wrapped up in the awful noise they call singing, you can't get either of their attention.

>Ask Ichigo why he lied to you about how he got to Crud City earlier.
ICHIGO: it's...i was a little worried about showing you. i try not to show anyone unless i have to. i feel my...mutations are quite different from other ones.

>Did they just bond... through music? Sick!
There's absolutely nothing sick about the display of drunken rhyming and stumbling swaying "dancing". You're glad they aren't killing each other, but you somehow feel like you'd handle a full on confrontation rather than having to sit and look at what's unfolding in front of you. The cake helps...it's the most delicious thing you've tasted in your life. After what feels like an hour of terrible singing and the occasional shouting Troy and Chopper say their goodbyes as Chopper leaves to wherever he's going. Afterwards Ichigo leaves as well leaving behind the plate of left over cake slices. After the two leave you go to talk to Troy, He's still a bit buzzed but seems to be in a good mood after making a new friend today. Before you leave to go into your house he stops and hands you... a chunk of rock? He says it's a meteorite chunk he meant to give to you before, but forgot to since he was high on peyote.

You enter your house and for the first time since your father's unfortunate death, just decide to take in your surroundings. Along with being a demon hunter and mechanic your dad was a skilled craftsmen who built the whole house with the help of your mother. Vol sits down on the sofa, It's night time now.

What kind of "workshop" would you be looking for? You have a table in your room you use for smaller projects and heavier tools are in the garage.

You and Vol sit down on the couch to read the books you got a while ago.

>Your Plant and You!
You grab the dead plant ,which you've dubbed "Herby", you found and follow instructions in the book to help it...all you can really do right now is cut away the dead branches since you lack plant food, and the sun isn't up. You put Herby on the kitchen table until you can do more with it.

>Save Atlantis
This books about a man that turns his house into a boat and survives a tsunami that takes out one of the few safe havens in a flooded world. The book grabs your attention with the protagonist almost dying at the very beginning, losing one of his legs in the disaster that wrecked his town. His voyage leads him into dangers such as flying sharks and giant octopus on his way to a city called Denver, those creatures sound scary, but you aren't quite sure things like sharks or octopus are real; then again you wouldn't know the biggest body of water you've seen is a bathtub. You spend a good amount of time reading and decide to mark your page in the book, you're about a third of the way through.

>You spend a good amount of time reading and decide to mark your page in the book, you're about a third of the way through.
Please tell me you used a book mark and you didn’t bend the corner of the page. Doing that counts as damaging the book and Hazel is probably going to charge you extra cards for doing that!

>Y'know I'm kinda surprised you didn't want to look more at da grimoire spells when we got home.
“We don’t always have to be doing demonology stuff. It’s nice to just relax every now and then. Besides, that seems more like an ‘in the morning’ kinda thing to do instead of at night when we’re tired.”

Ichigo, Ada and her family have fangs that are probably venomous, extra limbs, and spider abdomens they can secrete silk out of. Heck they most likely have to shed their chitin every once in a while and lock themselves indoors while the new layer hardens.

YOU: What like spinach? That stuffs gross.

>Practice making a solid caesura
Again you attempt to fully enclose your caesura barrier, and again it feels like there's a force pushing back against you. After some fighting you manage to completely enclose your barrier for about half of a second. You end up tired afterwards, doing this seems impractical at the moment. You decide to save your strength for training tomorrow since you'll be meeting Flint.

>Let Peaches out to stretch his legs.
You release Peaches from his scroll, he goes right to laying at your feet and falling asleep. Lazy cat.

Oddly enough the chunk of meteorite vibrates slightly when it touches your barrier, or when it touches Vol and Peaches. Not good enough to use to detect unseen demons but it's got potential.

>The Grimoire
Vol reads another few page from the book. The author didn't seem too interested in writing down information on demons so there isn't a lot you can use. A lot of whats written down are miscellaneous diary entries so most of whats being read is useless and uninteresting. Some pages are in High Demonic and you assume those pages have less boring things written down but neither of you can read any of it.

And you know it can be used to hold things, but what happens to an object stuck in the barrier’s walls when you try making it thicker?

These are things you should practice with your newfound Caesura thickening trick!

Do you think it has anything to do with your tattoos that your dad said you were born with?

>Oddly enough the chunk of meteorite vibrates slightly when it touches your barrier, or when it touches Vol and Peaches. Not good enough to use to detect unseen demons but it's got potential.
But did either Vol or Peaches react to the meteorite chunk touching them? Like did the meteorite feel weird to them or did they only notice it vibrate when it touched them?

>There's nothing else you really want to do tonight, you have more things to do in the morning anyway...
Then it’s time to get to sleep!
No. 908068 ID: d3602f

Hmm, main problem seems to be that the rock only reacts to energy at very close proximity. We could probably make some kind of machine to measure vibrations, but it's pointless if it needs to touch. Maybe it reacts while full of energy, but releases it too quickly. If so, that could be remedied if it's in contact with a material that sucks in the energy, while only slowly letting it out. There are two leads that I can think of.

1. Silver. It distabilizes aetheric energy somehow. Maybe it does it by forcefully sucking it in? Of course, this won't work if silver distabilizes it another way. The other issue is that if it does, it needs to slowly let it out, or the stone won't suck any in. This may possibly be fixed by slowly tarnishing the silver, putting it into a form that cannot hold the energy. If this works, either we'll need to find a good slow way to do it, or we'll need to by a lot of silver.

2. Humans hold aetheric energy. The problem is we hold it too well, which, again, prevents enough energy from leaving for the stone to react. Maybe find energy depleted flesh or blood and it might soak in ambient energy. Deteriorating parts will likely release the stuff, but I'm not sure if it will keep the property.

On another subject, we should also bring Peaches with us to training, Flint might know a thing or two on how to get him stronger. Maybe. Even if he doesn't, we could maybe have some training exercises together.

What is this Heresy?!?!
No. 908072 ID: 90f3c0

Maybe the meteorite can be refined into something that will have a stronger reaction. We should find someone to examine the rock, and see what we can learn about its composition.
No. 908073 ID: 91ee5f

I mean, the artist’s name is Heretic, so you should’ve expected there to be some kind of heresy going on around here.
