Interesting choice.

Ok something that I have been wondering about is why us the title of this series "Graphite Ash Drawing?" I thought it was because it started as just that, a pencil (graphite) drawing of the Ash symbol.

Alright so continuing my line of thought from the main quest here. I think we need to seriously rethink how long the cult have been at this. Ana stated that they started out as nothing more than just a rumor. But now we know that the rumor was true. What we don't know is how long this has been going on for? But it's probably safe to say everyone is a lot older than we first initially guessed. Lorence has to be pushing 50 by now. Root is probably in his 30s, and I bet Delilah is probably 27 (just my personal guess based on the proposed timeline). I mean fuck this has actually got me thinking. What is the current date in the quest? I'm going to guess its the not so distant future (say 2020 or so? Maybe less?) Then that would set the original event that started everything back in the 60's even? Back when the Ash Tree was just a ravenous demon and the original folks behind it were just poor suckers at the wrong place and time. Now I really want to see a full timeline of events that have led up to this point.

One thing to consider: we are basing this off of Rosaline being a child, but something happened to her that corrupted her dna to make her part spider. Thus, She could have the same lifespan of a spider: 15 to 25 years, making her aging rapidly.

Well from that name alone I can infer a couple things. First of all, he is the one who started it, "The Instigator." Sure being part of that first event, means that some of those teens survived. If his job is to tie up loose ends it means he was there too. So he's one of the original teens, also if we want to get even deeper, it means that he started the chain of events, and it all started out as just a prank... so that means it's Tom, just wanting to scare his buddies but setting in motion something he could never undo...

And I bet he's going after Anastasia and her grandfather...

That sounds delicious! I'll have to try that! My autumn time snack would have to be any that my family makes when we get together. We have a lot of signature foods like grilled pizza and this really cheesy artichoke dip, it's absolutely fantastic. We don't get many street vendors but come autumn we have a HUGE farmers market that sell a bunch of good stuff.

And it's fascinating to see the orig al sketches! I like seeing how close I got to the original ideas. It seems I switched Marty and Tom around in my designs and gave Tom, Marty's glasses, haha! With mike I feel I switched him and jerry around in terms of disposition, making Jerry a party guy (though not very strong) and Mike into a more serious person (although just as strong). Betty I think I turned into more of a goth girl, haha, and Nadly I don't think changed much beyond her hair.

No. 111622 ID: 388cdd

I gotta say though, out of the original cast I think the ghost has changed the most, going from being basically just a dude in a mask to... well what he is now, a giant skeleton-tree demon. However I can guess that that original design was what led to the creation of the cultist design and them actually being guys in masks.

That would probably be for the best really, if the first setting is just in an apartment complex. If it were as it was now that would be scary but I think it would be too large to fit.
"I HAVE COME FOR YOUR SO-URK! Uh... little cramped in here..."

See, I initially thought it was outdoors at a campsite, like they all decided for a spooky ghost night at a friend's cabin or camping, giving it a kind of Blair witch or even Evil Dead (without the goofy parts) feel to it, as well as Samara. Incidentally, this got me thinking ghosts and demons are scary because we know there is no physical way of stopping them, and we can even really see them, making them equally terrifying because we don't know how to confront them. Other monsters, like vampires are werewolves are just kinda fun to watch. Zombies themselves aren't scary but what makes zombie movies and tv shows like the walking dead good, is watching everyone trying to adjust to their new lives, and I just realized this is kinda the same thing with R&B. What makes it entertaining is seeing how the world and its people have chosen to react to their new situation with the fog.

Hey you know what I would like to see? A news report. The fog is spreading and it has covered one major city. We still don't know what city though, I've suspected London for a while but gotten no sure answer. It could be New York or Los Angles for all I know. ive just assumed London because that does have forests on the outskirts of the city and I can totally see Root taking over Windsor Castle as his main base of operations once they move the compounds. But I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world is making of what is going on outside the fog and what government officials are saying.

Also, a thought came to mind, with all this time traveling we've been doing, should we worry about causing time paradoxes? Falafaf did imply that they exist when she said her fortunes are time paradox free. I'm wondering if there are any dire consequences in all the time traveling we're doing in the story. Also, the concept of the butterfly effect is terrifying to me.

Although I do have to ask out of curiosity, would you use any of the character redesigns that I did with the Poster for strange abnormalities? Or would would try to stick to the original designs. Like I said I used my "True form" as a base for one of the characters in that drawing so if that one doesn't survive I think my reaction would just be "awww damnit, oh well." Lol. But I am also curious as to where this story or comic would be uploaded. It wouldn't really work here since it's not a quest.

So when you say it will be like a tell tale game, you mean that the suggestions we give will be based off of multiple choice decisions, right?

as in: Oh no, the clouds are all angry at you for wishing the rain to go away through your dumb song. What should you do?

A. keep singing
b. keep singing, but louder
c. stop singing
d. ask the clouds if they want to join in

I've personally never minded the choice of options as long as each of them were fair choices. If we select a bad choice then it's our own damn fault. One thing I am curious to see is how you will work that, like have an option that will involve multiple characters, or will we just control one person at a time. Some freedom of dialogue wouldn't be too bad either. Like if we are just controlling one person at time, we say what they would say but their actual actions is left up to specific options

Hmm, that might work but what I would do, first of all is have different chapters devoted to different characters. With each chapter taking around the same time as the other but with our character a different person each time. So the first chapter we could play as anyone, and this is merely to set the story up and get everything ready and to establish other characters. Chapter 2 we play as the character who sets up what I'll call "the first domino" that sets everything else in motion. The next chapters we would play as one character for one situation and another for the next. Alternatively we could play as a different character for the same scenario and what has already been established wouldn't change. This could work well at moments when they have to split up. That's the other thing, force them to separate. Any good horror fan will know you never split up because that's how you get killed, but give us a situation that forces them to splint up, this could be something like a door shuts in front a few people and it won't reopen, not even by brute force. This way it forces them to split up and plan on meeting up and regrouping at another location.

My last piece of advice is really play with expectations. The moment when we think something is going to happen, nothing does. Keep playing with our perception and keep us guessing. It's always more tense and scary when we know some should be happening soon but nothing does, but when it does it's scary as fuck. See this falls under the second category of scary, Terror. Our minds keep expecting something but we get nothing and the tension keeps building. The other kinds of scary are horror, basically that would be the jumpscare nightmare fuel ride kind of scary, and then there is "gross-out" scary, which if done right can be scary as hell but is really just as it sounds, gross. That kind of horror is kind of self-explanatory.

Weeeeellll... first of all, I noticed one in particular, Marty who looks most like the one I drew. I also notice he has a pencil and a sketch book implying he is an artist... hmmm....

Tom looks very much like a party guy, he's got a party hat it one hand and a beer in the other. Perhaps the one who would take things just A bit far for a joke? Sometimes maybe too far and it gets others in trouble?

Mike, definitely a strong guy. He hits the gym quite a bit and would want to be everyone's best friend. But maybe has a bad temper and would abuse his strength to get his way?

Jerry, definitely a loner. I don't know why but I picture him wearing hiking boots. His backpack makes me think he is something of a hiker and a survivalist, but why is he a loner? Does think he isn't worthy of real human contact?

Betty looks like someone who needs to have control. Control over her situation, and would try to put others in her control as well. Someone who if she lost it would try and regain it, at any cost...

Nadly. She is innocent, pure but naieve. She has had many people do everything for her. She's almost never had to a hard day's work in her life. Could she be able to adapt? Not only to this situation but how it changes her friends?

Okay real talk here for a second. Have you ever read any of the Ender Books by Orson Scott Card? The reason I bring it up is there is a very specific character in the books who was given genetic modifications as a young child. This modification allowed him to get genius levels of intelligence at a young age, but his body would keep growing into adulthood, effectively giving him fatal giantism where his heart could no longer support his body.

The reason I'm bringing this up is he also had kids, three of which had the same genetic disorder that allowed them to have the same abilities as their father, genius levels of intelligence, but their bodies wouldn't stop growing.

So the reason I bring this up is this may be the case with Rosaline's newborns. Already they seem to be toddler aged, rather than babies. It's obvious that they have inherited their mother's spider abilites, but did they inherit EVERYTHING from their mother? Including the shortened life-span? Signs point to yes.

They work together sounds like a possible answer, I was thinking that too as it fits a theme of working together with 93 after we save her, but you're right, we should look at other possible answers.

I was also thinking for the no hands person, they get a "handlebar" and for the guy with no legs, they get "wheels" or "pedals" since the riddle didn't specify if hands or legs were missing from the person or the bike. For example "how does a person with no hands ride a bike" could actually mean "how does a person with no handlebars ride a bike (handlebars = hands of a bike)", and "how does a person with no legs ride a bike" could actually mean "how does a person with no wheels/pedals ride a bike (wheels/pedals = legs of the bike)"

Using prosthetic legs, or prosthetic hands for both answers also came to mind, but it seems way too simple and obvious of an answer for a riddle.

Yeah, even if we wanted your help, looks like Rabbot is spying on us. He might see you answering for us as cheating... He looks kinda cute, like a rabbit peeking out of a tophat

anyway, Other answers I just thought up:

It is pretty much almost impossible to ride a bike without hands because you need them to balance. the bike will need some kind of support. Something like an exercise bike since the wheels aren't on the ground and instead supported by a base. If exercise bike doesn't count, then perhaps training wheels to help balance the bike without arms. You just won't be able to turn unless you use your chin or teeth. (I say almost impossible because I saw this cool video of an armless person able to cycle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_9UEF26dew)

as far as no legs go, you need legs to pedal. In order to ride a bike with no legs then, you'll have to ride down a hill. Granted, you'll crash, but hey, you'll be riding the bike! just make sure you at least wear a helmet, you idiot!

Lastly, Rabbot was thinking human centipede, but when I thought teamwork between the armless and legless men, I was thinking more of a tandem bike, like this vintage image I found on Reddit of an armless man and legless man on a Tandem bike:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2VVYuYWuovE/Upcc24iQ7AI/AAAAAAAAVAM/Ba--nC7rnBY/s640/Charles+B.+Tripp,+the+armless+m

that is teamwork right there.

He is like a misbehaving child, I'd say it's time to really put limits on him and give him one serious timeout that he's not going to forget anytime soon. Seriously deprive him of his power and just watch the temper tantrum erupt. It will be hilarious

ABSURDITY! ROBBIT RABBOT IS PICKING ON US!

Help us out a little with this riddle?

Rabbot is spying on us, sadly.

Sometimes, we just got to take the plunge. And I don't want to be blamed for not being able to save 93 when we had the chance to because of fear, and I'm tired of running like a coward. So, other Anas, out of the answers we came up with that I posted in the story, which do you think is the correct answer:

answer 1, answer 2, answer 3, or answer 4.

I am leaning towards answer 1: the tandem bike.
answer 4 is a close second though
>>
No. 112186 ID: 143250

That said, I'll try answering with either answer 1 or answer 4 by default tomorrow night (Monday, central time), unless one of you feels I'm taking the wrong answer and want to vote on one of the other answers, or come up with a better one. I will take full responsibility for my actions if it is the wrong answer.

...Yeah...ok. I appreciate you stepping in to help out Absurdity, but I'm standing up to myself and giving him my own answer now. We can't let him intimidate us. It is time to be brave.

I know I said I will do it tonight, but really, that might of been a way to stall for time. I'm answering now.

As I said, I will take full responsibility for my actions if he hurts Ana and accept any sort of punishment from you other Anas, as I will be the one suggesting to Ana when no one else will.

If he does try to hurt Ana if it is the wrong answer, I'll give him a proposition. If that does not work, I will give him Absurdity's answer.

I spoke with some friends, they agreed on the double seated bike answer. Wish me luck.

Technically it's not even a riddle. A riddle is solvable and has an answer if you think about it within the right way. For example, since we all about legs and arms right now

Two legs cooked it, six legs ate it, four legs got some. Who are they?

The answer is the wife cooked breakfast for her husband who was sitting at the table in a chair and the cat got a little bit from the plate.

So in the interest of art appreciation, I went to a local art museum today. I took a lot of pictures and one video all of which have something to do with R&B (at least a little) most of the pictures I took all have the theme of woods and branches of gods and masks as all of these have importance in the story, and some which I know Robbit Rabbot would absolutely love to have in his hall. If you want I'll show you what I found today. I the interest of keeping my location a secret I've edited some of them only a little, mostly keeping names out but there are a few I feel you would love.

Alright so I actually did a double take with this one because I swore it was like someone put a demon in this painting. It's like Andrew found his way on canvas. I stared it down for a minute and I swear it actually seemed to get angrier at me. It really reminds me of Andrew Goodwill, maybe it's his great grandfather. I actually got a shot of the painting description and name and I'll post that next.

Ah, that's one evil looking shaman. See most of those masks are either very ceremonial or meant to worn by a tribal shaman, many of whom have been said to have real healing powers. I say this with 100% truth, many of the native people where I'm from swear this stuff is true. I even had a college professor who told us about his interactions with Shamans. This same professor told us some shamans that committed murder or committed very evil crimes were called "Bad Shaman" and their power reflected their evil souls.

Ahh, ozzymandias. It's a good choice but it's just a little too off for me. See, Ozzymandias still considers himself a hero. He knows that in order to fix the world, human kind will need a common enemy and so he creates one. I won't spoil it for people who haven't read Watchmen, but he ends up killing a lot of people in order to bring about a greater good. He doesn't rule them however, and he tries to hold on to his own humanity. Root does not do that.

There IS However a comic book villain that does suit him even better!

Dr. doom is a magical dictator and he fully believes that he must take over the world in order to better it, that he can lead humanity into a better future. But unlike Ozzymandias, Dr. doom knows and embraces the fact that he is a villain

Fortune Ana: The Hermit

Hmm, given your own mind changed a silly dream into a nightmare and that you cannot remember anything of your past self, this makes sense. The Hermit card suggests that you doing some soul searching, and you want to seek truth, and your priorities are going to change. But you also through this period of self examination you can to love and help others and can appreciate the paths people choose for themselves.

Scarred Ana: The Chariot

This card represents victory and overcoming opposition thought outer strength, confidence, and control. This card indicates determination to succeed and the drive to push forward, anyones who try to get in the way, you will conquer. This card though means coming to grips with aggressive impulses but knowing that anger isn't something that should be repressed, but having control must be maintained.

As a recent novice fortune teller, I might as well do an analysis on your interpretation of my card

>Hmm, given your own mind changed a silly dream into a nightmare and that you cannot remember anything of your past self, this makes sense.

It worries me a little. When I first summoned here, I was confused, scared, and I haven't helped Ana for the longest time because I was trying to figure out who I was, and did not want to be involved with the madness. When I tried to remember the past, my heart would always start racing or sinking during the strongest moments of my brainstorms to a point where I literally had to stop in trauma. It wasn't until after Root killed Absolution and a lot of people lost hope that I decided to cautiously step in and slowly and surly begin guiding Ana after one of her most terrifying experience, and decided to forget the past, and let the present form who I will become in the future.

What worries me the most is as I stated before that during "Street Smarts" when Delilah asked Root to tell her his dark past, I decided to construct a story for him for the hell of it, not knowing 100% that it was Root himself at the time when I thought it up. But Root went with it. It was all true. What worries me is how during my past life, I knew so much about Root's past, a man shrouded in so much mystery.

>The Hermit card suggests that you doing some soul searching, and you want to seek truth, and your priorities are going to change.

After meeting with Falafaf, and receiving visions of tarot cards, this I feel could be true. Falafaf says we need to be prepared for betrayal and consider the friends we would trust our lives with. Also, with tarot vision, I am trying to prioritize my responsibilities with it, figure out how I should use it without abusing it, or letting it corrupt me like it did with Falafaf back in her dimension, and use it to help us through these trying times.

>But you also through this period of self examination you can to love and help others and can appreciate the paths people choose for themselves.
I'm finding myself wanting to have Ana help others, sometimes to a fault, or risking our lives doing it, and I'm too forgiving, I'll admit. When Boxhead left us to join FBI Laura, I wasn't angry, or upset. Just disappointed, but at the same time, I wish Boxhead no harm and wish him luck on his future endeavors. Perhaps Laura will be able to make him a happier person and reliable as we have failed to do, and Boxhead will restore her faith in others.

(Boxhead left us, btw Dreamwalker. You weren't there. It was heartbreaking)

On the topic of tarot cards, I didn't want to say anything since I didn't want to alarm Ana, but the card that is currently associated with her, the two of swords card is cracking. What do you think this could mean? perhaps she is beginning to break out of her indecision and fears... To be sure I should talk to Falafaf about it when she isn't busy. It could either be good news, or worrying...

>>112474
My theme song? hard to choose. I would think maybe something ambient or soothing... with a little sense of unease?

I think Boxhead is going to be FBI Laura's unwitting pawn, and if she goes down she is going to take him with her, because that is the kind of person she is. Gods, she strapped bombs to her coworkers to ensure loyalty, that's essentially holding them hostage and forcing cooperation. I wouldn't be surprised if she's already got him wired up with something, she's going to hurt herself and him. She has forgotten the face of her father!

By the way, if you are wondering where that comes from its a saying Godfrey told me when I trained with him. When I let my anger get the better of me and behaved without honor or virtue, he said that I had forgotten the face of my father.

I remember somethings about my journey but the outcome is always foggy. I do remember how I got these scars though... I'll save that for another time.

As for my choice of song for you Fortune Ana, if you want something calming but with a sense of unease, I'd say this is you.

I just had an idea, once we defuse the bomb, and take it out, maybe what we could do is put it on the ground, walk in a safe distance away from it, shoot a fireball at it,, and cause it to explode and fake Ana's, and 93's death once word gets out from Laura and boxhead once they hear the explosion. The cult will think Ana is defeated and stop searching for us, and will leave them open for a nasty surprise attack from us. Anyone want to try that idea? we'll have to find a new mask and outfit for Ana and 93 to make this work. Maybe the abandoned warehouse will have something?

Quite an intimidating mask. But, I think at the end of the day, if we decide to take on the plan of faking Ana's and 93's death after the bomb is defused, and having Ana assume a new identity, it would be the perfect mask for people not to suspect it is Ana.

On the decision of faking Ana's death: it will be a tough decision, but I am considering the fact that as of right now, we have made enemies with not only with Root, but now with people who are fighting to resist Root as well, seeing us as traitors because of our merciful actions. With a whole bunch of people now looking for Ana, and the fact that we have nonstop having to deal with an threat without breathing room, I think it would be best to take this action, and have Ana start again under a new identity before pressing on to defeat Root. We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Maybe once we reach the hotel, we should try ringing the bell and see if it will transport us to the shop again. Who knows, Blacky might still be there, alive. Probably not well, but alive nonetheless.

You know what? I hate movie cliches. Especially that one where someone has a secret that they don't tell because they think it keeps people safe, but then it backfires horribly. So in defiance of this kind of crap, i'm just going to tell you all. So, Gaia, Logan, Laura, Ana, Absurdity, Anyone on my contacts list really, Can I have your attention for a second? So here's the deal, a guy named Dervan has an old knife of mine and he is a psychopath killer. He says he will give it back but stick it through one of your guts to do so. I've sworn I won't let that happen because I care about all of you and I want you all to be safe, and again, fuck movie cliches, but I have a last resort kind of magic that lets me become something... rather unsavory, Gaia, Logan I know you two know what it is and yeah I know, it's bad. But here's the deal, IT IS STILL ME. Regardless of how I look or sound, or anything that happens, know that I do it mostly to keep you all safe, and most of you I know can probably fend for yourselves, and this dervan guy seems like someone who can talk a big game, but honestly after what happened with Absolution, I am taking no more chances. I'm mostly telling you this part because he is pulling that whole "You will only hurt those you love" crap, well again, FUCK. CLICHES. You know why I would do it, but you all have a lot of power and can probably fight for yourselves, but I will use it only, and I repeat, ONLY. WHEN. NECESSARY. Good? We cool? Right on!

Kiiiind of rude to be eavesdropping on our plans, but it might not matter too much as what goes on in Ana's dimension isn't too much of a concern to you, and we have been eavesdropping on the enemy team. but nonetheless, welcome to this little corner. Can we get you anything?

For losing notoriety: we're not saving the world for glory. We are saving it because it is the right thing to do. I'd rather not give us too much attention, especially since a lot of people are after us. I don't know how we would handle the fame afterwards. Plus, I feel hiding her identity will only be temporary if we do this plan. It will be impossible to keep Ana's identity a secret forever especially since we may have traitors among us. But as of right now, we need some breathing room, even if it is temporary.

Alright so this is more speculation more than anything, but it suddenly came to me few days ago. It's been nagging at me as to why Root's mask is kind of... plain. I mean look at some of his top generals, some of them have much more elaborate masks than he does. So it's been nagging at me as to why his mask seems so simple by comparison to some of the others. But then I started to think about it, How did he even know what symbol to use for the mask? Did the Ash tree tell him? That could be it but it doesn't make much sense. Why would The Ash Tree tell him something that would make his life hell? But then it continued to dawn on me that what if when he found the ash tree and took its powers, he also found his mask? The question is who did the mask originally belong to?

I have one other theory but it ties more into the original story again, as well as part 3 that takes place at lacuna lake. See, part 3 the one we know the least about but the feel I get is it will be something more like friday the 13th as it will be of a slasher in the woods by lacuna lake (where a summer camp for kids is no less), rather than the first 2 parts which are more akin to the ring and other ghost stories. Also there is one character that I keep thinking of when it comes to part 3, and that is the one known as "The Instigator." So far what we know about him or her, is that he is meant to tie up any loose ends from the first event, meaning if there are any survivors from the first event. So here is my final guess as to what happens. The instigator dies in part 3 which is also where the ghost becomes the being we know as the Ash Tree and he hangs out in the woods of Lacuna Lake. The instigator dies at the tree, either from blood loss from a fight or simply by comiting suicide, as I suspect he himself is the final loose end of this whole thing (Anastasia and her grandfather not withstanding) His body rots away, but his mask remains. And its there Root, who as we remember was crawling away from his anger and trouble, finds the ash tree and the mask.

I'm probably wrong about the instigator as there is also evidence to support he might be alive and going after Anastasia and her grandfather, but I do think I may be on to something.

I trust you Absurdity, but that also makes you an odd target. But since I trust you I'll tell you what I am planning on doing to Dervan should be even attempt to hurt you or anyone.

As I'm sure you've seen I've been... Preparing myself for something. Gods usually come with more than one name, Absolution went by many different names, just as I do. But we each have a name that we prefer to think of ourselves as. For me, I prefer either Morpheus or just Dreamwalker, both mean the same to me. However another name I have is "Phobetor." As Phobetor, I become the god of all nightmares and madness. When I am Phobetor, things... get really ugly. I'm saving it just in case, hell in all honesty I don't care about that knife anymore, I just want to protect my family, but I take no chances anymore. Those who attempt to hurt those I love, I will destroy, they will pray for the peace of death but will recieve nothing.

Dervan makes me nervous to be honest. He somehow knows Andrew.
I've been hoping to make our interactions with him small as to not instigate him further and just leave him alone so he can leave us alone, but it doesn't seem to be the case...

what you said about dimensional beings being "slippery and egotistical" has put in some thoughts about whether doing a commercial to recruit other dimensional beings to help us is a good, bad, or neutral idea. But the fact that Root sent out his own commercial to join his group makes me believe that at some point we will have to fight against powerful dimensional beings, and we might have to send out the commercial in order to even the odds, despite them having those bad traits as you said, Absurdity. hmmm...

>Also awesome picks for the songs, especially for the doll

Thanks. I wonder if the doll is human. I'll try and think up more theme songs for other characters that didn't get one yet.

Dumb question about Logan: is he wearing a Lucha libre mask? Probably not, but I think it would be kind of funny if he was.

Laura's friend Betty: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tnyqgd67wog

It occurred to me after rereading Betty's dialog that it is a high possibility that she was the one who pushed Ana and left her the note at the very start of Ana's journey. Can't believe I missed that. Now we gotta figure out who that other masked person was that was spying on her was after she ran away from the bus stop.

I'm wondering if Betty was given the mission to drop the note specifically to Ana and no one else, or if her mission was to find one random person to push and drop that note off to. If the former, then I wonder what the cult sees and wants with Ana that we weren't seeing. Ana had no magic abilites, and was very normal at the time. Its especially weird since this was all before she first met Root during her first meeting with Absurdity.

By the look of the guy's mask and claw like hands, the spy was probably this guy. I remember he was in a commercial for the needles of life, he said that he was once a carpenter. So that's how I'm going to think of him as for now "The Carpenter."

What I would like to know is, Ana didn't know any of these people originally, so why did they target her? Did they sense she had some other powers about her? I think they were trying to get her to join. Come to think of it did they use the same process when Root picked Lorence and sprung him out of prison?

Wall of text, apologies in advance (man, doing a lot of wall of texts in this quest, lol)

Possible Plan of action

After we get back from disguising Ana, we'll hide out in the hotel, wait for Logan and wait awhile for rumors of Ana's death to spread after we explode the bomb (or the grenade. I guess Robbit can have Laura's bomb as payment or something). I'm sure after people hear of Ana's death, they will stop searching, lowering the number of threats we'll have to deal with (not all of course, there will most likely still be some powerful weirdos out there we'll have to deal with).

Now, it is a possibility that news will also break out around that time that their valuable member, Godfrey will be having a trial scheduled to happen eventually for his betrayal, and people will most likely be interested in seeing that trial as they have nothing better to do. This trial will be used to our advantage as a distraction, and as a way to stall time as we travel through the forest.

Now, this trial of Godfrey's loyalty I feel will weigh heavily on how people view Ana, as Godfrey saw good in Ana when everyone else didn't. It will be up to Matilda to show these cult members that Ana isn't the monster they are making her out to be in order to show why Godfrey defended Ana.

As I said, I only plan on having Ana use her secret identity temporary. Hopefully we will be able to make it last until at least towards the end of Godfrey's trial when people have a new better opinion of Ana.

So what I am planning here is if 93 is still there waiting for us when we get back, we can ask her to carefully head towards the trial, not be seen by Laura and Boxhead of course, and be a potential surprise witness for Matilda as a last resort probably towards the end of Godfrey's trial. If they hear from 93 how Ana saved her life, while risking getting caught, and losing her two allies Boxhead, and Laura, they might definitely start thinking differently about Ana on top of everything else Matilda proves towards Ana's actions. Some of the cult members if we're lucky may even start question their own alliance to Root.

having 93 reveal Ana's actions will of course also reveal that Ana isn't actually dead, but if Matilda plays her cards right in defending Godfrey and defending Ana's actions, it might not matter as much.

to Scarred Ana:
In order to hide Ana's identity, we can't be having Ana use her fire magic as much. I believe you were the one who taught her fire magic when she was hanging on the building. I want you to try to remember any other spells Ana can try to replace her fire magic with for awhile, like an ice spell, water spell, wind spell, etc. Also, to help keep Ana's identity covered, we should probably find her some kind of small staff or something she can use as a wand so that her magic will look like it is coming from the wand, and not her hands to keep suspicion low.

To Dreamwalker: Please stay calm when I say this. I had a terrible vision when I was reading Scarred Ana's fortune (she's one of the other Anas btw). I saw you chained up, tortured, and defeated, from what I understand for many years. Please keep an open mind when I say this: your torturer was what appeared to be Ana. She wasn't herself though, she had red glowing eyes, she was saying things I've never expected her to say, and I think AJ was missing from her right eye as well. She appeared to be a ruler of her empire of some sort, and has claimed that time has no effect on her, insinuating that she became some kind of deity. After years of you refusing to join her empire, she... killed you with a spear.

Now, before you jump to conclusions, we don't know if this came from Scarred Ana's past that she forgot, or if it is a possible future of a path we are heading. But know that as a fortune teller, I know that destiny doesn't exist, and we can make our own paths. We'll have to make absolutely sure Ana does not go down this path. The path of the Moon Tarot card. If we see that card anywhere near Ana, we will do everything we can to change that.

I'm telling you this because I do not want to keep secrets from a friend, even if we don't agree on some things. I'd rather you find out now, rather than later so that we can be better prepared on how to avoid this possible outcome.

I'll see what I can do about magic, I already have a few ideas of what she could do. Lightning for example.

As for me being that Red Person, Falafaf told us that is wasn't me. So we still don't know who that was. That could have been Root for all we know... Or perhaps it could be Ana now, but I find that all unlikely... I think I might have known who that was... and if I'm right... It's a horrifying truth which I must confront...

You say, whoever this person was didn't have AJ... well in the pursuit of self-preservation, I'll try and help you as best I can. I have no power over prophecy except basic rudementary Tarot, but I can maybe recreate it, perhaps we can get a better look at this red eyed person.

Blending magica though isn't easy... but maybe with your power of the tarot and with my power of dreams we can recreate the scene somehow. I'm not fond of seeing my own death but maybe there's a chance we could figure more things out.

Well on the topic of winning or losing, honestly that's kind of a loaded question. See, this quest reminds me a lot of games like Call of Cthulhu and other survival horror games like World of Darkness. And in those games you don't necessarily "win." I mean you can, Weaver in Rubyquest was actually going to have a very bittersweet ending but due to the actions of the players they got a great ending which was never planned out in the original draft. But in games like Call of Cthulhu, you don't really win, you have a very debatable kind of "best end" scenario. Is just surviving the best end? Or being a hero only die later on the best? It can really vary.

Sorry to cut this party short I need to talk about something, but still welcome back Absurdity. We also made a delicious cake. yay.

Okay, I'd be really interested in meeting this person and learning her secrets, but my only concern is, Ana and ourselves will not be the only ones to meet this secret person. Other people will be WC, AJ, and Ana's rage.

WC: He has helped us many times, saving us from Jimmy, keeping the rage within from taking control of Ana, and helping us talk to other people, and I'm grateful for that. But, there is a chance that he might not be totally trustworthy, I'm sad to say only because of his business with his previous employer, Root. Falafaf said that we have to be careful around people who are our friends who are helping the cult in some way. WC has been hired by Root himself to protect him for a while, and he was ordered by Root to keep Ana alive, insinuated back in the end of the Tea Time story. I also had a nightmare where I was beheaded, and part of a dance show with Wildcat, I think Ana dressed in similar clothing to wildcat, and a monster holding my head that traumatized me awake. (I don't want to see that monster, something about it... I don't want to think about it. It scares me more than Dervan himself) I heard a message before the end of the dream: Can you trust him, should you trust him, will you trust him with your life? I'm not saying WC is a bad person, and I'm grateful for his help, but as I said, he was employed by Root and ordered to protect us. It stands to reason Root will order WC to stop protecting us, and give him intel, not out of spite, but as business. I want to trust WC, he is very friendly, but I feel conflicted about my dream, and Falafaf's warnings

AJ: he is on our side, I don't think he will betray us unless we do something unforgivable. However, what I'm more concerned about is the person who is able to take control of him:

The Rage Within: this guy, I feel has no qualms with revealing someone if it is to his own benefit. He is the biggest risk in revealing this person's existence, and the secrets she'll share. If we must learn this person's secrets, we must absolutely learn immediately how to keep the rage within from taking control of Ana

I'll be glad to meet this person, but on the condition that it will only be Ana, and ourselves, not WC, not AJ, and not the Rage Within. Hell, maybe it should be safer that it only be me and you that meets this person, not Ana herself. Maybe Robbit can arrange for only us to meet this mysterious person?

Don't forget. WC was also the one who pulled us out of the death stare from Absolution and The Rage Within. Now he could also have done that sheerly because it is his job to do so, or he might have also been truly concerned for us. Now here's the other question we need to ask. You say he may still be in the employ of Root, but here's the thing, what Root Didn't know is that we would also get AJ, and until those powers find a way to intermingle, WC is acting more like a stopper on unleashing that full power. On top of that, WC himself has wondered if he is now a target of the cult. Do you recall the legitimate fear he showed when he learned Stitch was after us? He even admitted that his actions led to the deaths of some very specific and important cult members. If he is still in the employ of Root then he needs to realize that they might just see him as collateral damage now. And I think that's very foolish that you think we are the only ones who should see the whispers, are you honestly trying to tell me you are starting to doubt if you can trust Ana, some who is literally US?! You wouldn't even trust a woman who was quite literally probably in the exact same situation that you were and whose entire purpose is to guide her....

You need to grow a spine if you really think like that.

On top of this, I think Ana deserves to know the truth about mom and dad. Have you considered that WE are also keeping secrets from HER? What if we go to these whispers and they tell her what we were keeping from her? Who would be untrustworthy then? On top of this it's MOM and DAD, our parents too! And we are honestly going to just keep that away from her? The knowledge that Dad has joined up with the cult and doesn't even know that were alive? Shit, probably with him, maybe held prisoner now, Dad too! We didn't even think what that call could mean, WHAT COULD HAPPEN TO THEM NOW?! GODS HOW COULD BE SO FOOLISH!!

No. 112930 ID: 143250

Sorry, it's just that every time we make a tough decision like this, it always bites us in the end in some shape or form. It's not like I don't want Ana to hear what this secret person has to say, I'm all for having her hear it. It's more that the rage within will be hearing this too, and I wanted to address that concern. It's not that I don't trust Ana. I just wanted to address the possible consequences of agreeing, and your thoughts on them.

Again, I apologize. Lets agree to the decision, and address our concerns with her father right now. I'll just... stuff myself with some cake now. I'm sure it is delicious.

Hey absurdity? I have a request.

I want a meeting with Rage Within/Desolation. Here. Now.

They made a threat against us, saying we will pay for insulting it. Well I'll will stop insulting them when they treat us as equals. Until then if they try anything, just a small amount of knowledge, if Ana dies because of her rash actions, so does she, so do we all. On top of this, she has said that she will do something once we leave the shamans place. She might be taking advantage of her body now, we might get back and find her trying to kill 93, the kids holding us back.

If she DARES to lay a finger on any of them, I will personally see to it that she is destroyed. I know how I can do it, snuff her out like the coward she is. Or she can listen to my alternative...

But until then....

Oh, then I guess there is nothing to worry about. Though I think it looks like we will be gone for a little while, Absurdity. Enjoy your cake until we get back.

And I know you want to speak with Dervan over here, but honestly, I think it is for the best you leave him alone. Like I said, I want to fix our own problems we got ourselves in.

As we enter the darkness, feelings of sleepiness emerge, and from the sleep comes dreams from Morpheus aka dreamwalker.

My interpretation of what his theme would be, Especially when he is causing nightmares
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeuwogQvVVU

Also, dreamwalker, I have a question. Andrew asked you when you first met him if you had any other relatives he should know about, and you told him: "There is one other that you haven't met... But you will never know him."
Care to explain who your last relative is, and what you meant by he would never know him? or is he too much of a secret to even have us not know about? I can imagine him to be rather reserved, quiet, and/or neutral if he hasn't done anything since Absolution's death...

Now you will listen to ME! Ana, Knight of Shears, slayer of the wicked! If you have come here to taunt us then I will simply end you here and now and any dealings I may have thought to give you be damned! And by all the gods of between the heavens and hells, I WILL END YOU!

However I called you here to listen to a choice between your salvation or your damnation! You are swiftly on the road to your end so choose your next words very carefully or so help me, I will end you RIGHT NOW, and Ana will be damned and doomed without you! AM I CLEAR!?

Close. I'd say if Ana puts on that mask now, we're on the path of the opportunist and the monster is close behind that one. But here's the thing. This was a rigged game. Would it have mattered what card we picked? We still would have gotten that side show song and dance. She doesn't want to show us where we are now, she wants to put us in our place. Make us fear her because she is somehow omnipotent. I smell bullshit. But for the sake of argument let's say we are on the path of the opportunist. You have me who is all in favor of ending the cult, and you have fortune Ana who despite everything that happens still means we'll and is trying her gods damned hardest to make sure Ana is alive and well and more than anything sees her own wishes fulfilled. How long will we be on this path? How long before our voices drown out everything else? How long before she realizes her mistakes? I'm betting it won't be that long. We guide her, you skulk in the shadows like a wolf waiting to pounce on its prey. Well Ana is not Prey and we are her protectors.

(Alright look, I'm cutting the roleplaying here for a second because I'm legitimately pissed if that wasnt clear in how I've been playing this character. I've stated in the past that this quest has been a reason to get up in the morning due to some issues that I've had. I'm glad to say those issues are gone but I've also worked my ass off on the drawings as big shocker Dreamwalker and Fanart Guy is me. So I'm legitimately feeling pretty miffed and more than a little cheated at this ending. Now I can deal with a bad ending, if it is legitimate. But did you notice how just kinda sudden and rushed everything was there at the end? Ana just up and quits? Seriously? Why? She had every motive to keep going and just throw in the towel? It felt more like just quitting and for no good reason, worse it felt like railroading which I've also stated that I hate. It makes me actually angry because I feel that not only have we fucked up, but at least a year spent on this whole thing just went up in flames. Maybe the author wants to work on other stuff, that's fine, but for gods sake, don't just drop the plate to try and spin more. It's very frustrating and makes me angry and feel like everything we've done wasn't worth anything, which is worse. I don't want to just quit this because I want a better ending, I want to see things get resolved, so many things started and I want that satisfaction. This just makes me mad and I feel as if I wasted my time and effort as well as the paper because of a railroaded ending. Fuck me, I'm actually having trouble getting to sleep because of it. And Absurdity Masked Man, if you are reading this? I'm sorry man, you're a friend and all but I gotta speak my mind here, I'm not happy with any of this. like to know your thoughts as well Fortune Ana, or whatever you would like to namefag as in the future on this but those are mine.)

Don't worry about what I think. In all honesty, I've been reading this quest in a patient manner, and I don't want to form a strong opinion until the bitter end. As of right now, if you really want to know, after thinking hard about it, I guess my opinion is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ussCHoQttyQ

I just want to say though that I admire your passion to the story, but don't let it be an obsession, or jump to conclusions too early at certain moments. Sometimes, you just need to take a wait and see approach to situations like these. :)

Wrong. I don't want a continuation, or a do-over, or anything to do with you. What I want is a second chance. To tell Ana what needs to be said so that she will not go down this path. So that she becomes what I know she is capable of, she can break the chains of fate. And I also want her to become aware of what happens if she does chose this path. All I want is for her to come back to us. Essentially...
*seaches through the ashes, finds what she's looking for.*

I choose card E, the Hero.

>>113243
If that is the case then I personally will whatever price is necessary to correct it. I will face the judgement of time. To be honest, I know how my journey ended, and the sad fact is... I don't have anything left to lose... This card should explain what happened at the end of my path... the ten of swords reversed, the card of ruin...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2Ow3eqFbLg
But I can still save Ana, I can still save her, with her, I still have a chance, she still has a chance. With her, I finally have something to lose, and I won't see it torn away from me again. If I must suffer again and again, so that she might live and be whole, then I will gladly be the martyr.

*shoot, I deleted my post, because you deleted yours. basically, I was talking about how we might be causing a butterfly effect if we choose the other option*

Here's my worry, a lot of our enemies were calling Ana a monster, and there are also some good people on the other side that are trying to rescue civilians who may also believe Ana to be a heartless monster, thus warning the people they are saving having more civilians avoid or attack Ana if we try to save them. If we take the other choice, Eventually, Ana might start thinking she is a monster once enough people tell her she is, and accept her role as a monster, far worse than an opportunist. Basically, When enough people says it rains, you better bring an umbrella...

I discard my fortune telling ability. I only gained that by accident anyway. I didn't really ask for it in the first place. Plus, part of the reason why this happened is because we probably got too greedy for our own good with powers, making Ana power hungry in the process.

For life is quite absurd,
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow!
Forget about your sin -- give the audience a grin,
Enjoy it, it's the last chance anyhow!

So always look on the bright side of death!
Just before you draw your terminal breath.
Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.

Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true,
You'll see it's all a show,
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you!

And always look on the bright side of life

Always look on the bright side of life

Come on guys, cheer up

Always look on the bright side of life

Always look on the bright side of life

Worse things happen at sea you know

Always look on the bright side of life

I mean, what have you got to lose?
you know, you come from nothing
you're going back to nothing
what have you lost? Nothing!

Always look on the bright side of life

After thinking about it I'm in a familiar position right now before I decided to help Ana, which is doing nothing. And while I was doing nothing, I was trying to remember my past, but something often got me too scared to remember as I really got to thinking about it. With fortune vision, perhaps I can try and see a vision of my past life.

While we wait for Absurdity, or Maryana Sue, or whoever to arrive, Want to help me try to form a flashback of my past, if only a fragment? It might be difficult without Falafaf's help and her cards, as we lost connection to Robbit's place for some reason, but maybe I can try doing this on my own if I try hard enough. I just need you for moral support and to help keep me brave, okay?

Guide my unworthy hands.
Guide his soul back from the lands of the dead
Let my call be a light, and a beacon back to me.

Wise One-Eyed Odin, whose eye is the eye of Absolution, all of magic is within your command.
Whisper in my ear, the secrets of your son.
Glowing Baldr.
Tell me the last secrets you passed to him in death.
The secrets that would grant him life eternal.
The secrets that bring forth the sap of the greatest Ash Tree.
Let the sap of the Great Ash Tree, Yggdrasil, and the sap of The corrupted branch, infected by the bite of the worm, Nidhogg, be as one.
Let this sap come to me as liquid life, to restore this keeper of worlds.

Hel, goddess of death and the dark cold abyss.
May your ears hear my call.
Let this one walk freely from your realm. May he once again feel the warmth of the sun.
May he once again feel the breeze of the four winds.
May his hands be once again free to create and weave the dimensions of time.
Let he walk out of your realm of ice and darkness.
May the river of blades grant him safe passage as he returns home.
Back his hearth, back to his home.
Back to his life.

Absurdity.
Guardian of worlds unknown to us.
Please hear this call.
May your light shine through this darkness.
May your joy once again grace us.
May your dreams become real once again.
We are not worthy, but our worlds bleed.
They cry out for you.
Without you, we are lost at sea.
We are adrift in this limbo.
We are alone.
Guide us, help us, come back to us.
Come back to life.

Fate.
Cruel fate, weavers of Seidr, the very Branches and threads of existence.
May you grant me one thing.
May you extend the life of this one man.
May you extend your hand, not in anger, but in kindness.
Whatever price is to be paid for his life,
I will grant it.
Take of my body,
Take of my magic,
Take of my will,
Take of soul,
Take what is of my very self.
I give it freely, if only you grant him life again.
Give him the power to set us free once again.
Give him the power to help us correct our mistakes.


Please... Return to us... help us... please...

We've got a larger issue than what we were dealing with at the moment in our quest at the moment. We'll explain later, it's not safe here. for now, One of us will stay and protect Absurdity while the other will get whatever Absurdity needs.

I'll get it, if you are staying, take this you might need it. It's my personal Svardstav, Gungnir.

It can call down lighting, and if you throw it at an enemy, it will always find their heart. You can also detach the head and use it as a sword. It's also has a temporary healing ability. It won't last though, any wounds you sustain will come back after its done.

Okay Absurdity, what do you need from me?

I see now where your passion and anger comes from, you wanted to see Ana live the life you wanted to live, but failed to gain.

I'm sorry for you, but you also must realize, as tragic as it sounds, we can't force Ana to live the life we wanted to live in our past life. We can't shape what Ana truly wants, only life experiences can shape her wants, and everyone in the universe for that matter.

Don't blame yourself. There were a lot of unseen factors against us in our journey that had influenced Ana to the path she chose, and we all wanted something different for Ana as well, like me, I wanted to have Ana avoid trouble, just like I was doing for the longest time after I was summoned to her aid, and before helping her. Basically, the path of the survivor, with very little involvement as possible. That's basically why I wanted her to hide her identity and see her parents at home again But factors prevented me from wanting her to do that, like the fact that she was already on the path of the hero for a while, or so we thought, so I just went with the flow to make you happy as much as I can for her heroic path.

heh, But what do I know? I have next to no memory to figure out what defined me to relate to how you truly feel. I'm just a blank slate trying to make sense of all things. My biggest fear is that in my past life that I've forgotten I may have been an uncaring monster, and it may have unconsciously influenced Ana into danger. But who knows?

Now, stop forgetting your dad's face, you are disappointing Godfrey from your timeline. lets just travel and ignore Maryana Sue, unless you want her to start drawing pictures on your face while you lay there?

Just needed long enough to take this from you! Based on how you were using this when we were jumping around in time, I assume this was how you were moving us all through those timelines! Just needed the right chance to swipe it from you while you weren't looking at us! So I saaaaay, let's go back in time, to a place where you can't touch us, Absurdity is back, you are just gone, and Ana hasn't gone to see Celia yet. Sounds good? I think it sounds great.

Oh and you can save your whole "you don't know how to work that thing," jive. Because ironically you showed us how it works. Each configuration of this thing is set to point on the timeline. And given the position it was in when we first saw this thing, I'm willing to bet that was the configuration for that point in time, so a little tweak here, a turn there, change the color of the orbs to set us back just a little while backwards and this will put us right as we finished defusing that bomb, before we even thought about trying to hide, and Robbit showed up...

Scarred, I have to be honest with you... I never really seen Logan as attractive to begin with. I know that you and some other people think Ana and Logan belong together, but I'm not too sure myself if they are compatible... I don't know, it could be because I was attractive to someone else in my past life or something... and it could be there is one person in the timeline Ana was in before we entered this timeline that I think I might have an interest in... too shy to say who though *blush* Maybe you can guess who though?

Sorry, just wanted to get that off my chest.

I know him for what he was capable of becoming. To me he was the one who was able to put me, a broken woman back together. He can be incredibly kind, I didn't meet him under the same circumstances as this Ana did, I met him as I was trying to escape the city. We were just friends for while but the more I was with him the more I realized I loved him and I needed him. He was there for me when I really BECAME Scarred Ana. He was forced to watch, and he told me that no matter what I was still beautiful to him...

*sigh* I just wanted Ana to know the same happiness with him that I was able to know...

Alright... It's the artist, Anthony

I don't know what it is about him that draws me to him. Maybe I might have known him my past life, or Perhaps it is his personality or something, and how innocent, naive, and neutral he is towards this whole war. Despite all the suffering that is going on, all he wants to do is still do something simple that makes him happy like making artwork and not get involved with anything, as seen when he turned down Cela Mortus' offer or turned down immortality. There is something about that I can admire. I just feel like I need to protect him from the harshness of the world... But I know that if we ask him to join us and protect him, he would turn us down as well, as he seems like the type of person who wouldn't want to pick sides in this war. He would just want to do his own thing and stay out of trouble as much as possible and stick to his dreams and artwork. I wouldn't blame him, we ourselves have been getting Ana into trouble a lot. I wouldn't want for Anthony to suffer like that either. Besides, he's happy despite everything, and I wouldn't want to take that away from him and send him into danger in our fight if we get him to join us.

...I can only hope that when he died, it wasn't from being murdered. He seems too pure to get on anyone's bad side. Not intentionally at least.

>>113456
yep, he's definitely dead. Couldn't be any more dead.

...I hope I'm not going insane and hearing voices in my head. or maybe I have an astral projection of my own guiding me? Is this how Ana feels? Nah, couldn't be. Astral projections can see other Astral projections.

Well, insanity, or voices from spirits aside, whatever the case, I think it is for the best I leave this one up to Scarred Ana, this is a battle I think she needs to face herself. The rules also did say that only one participator is allowed, and if I help Scarred, I'm in a way participating, and it will be seen as cheating. I'd rather not want to go that route for myself. But I will admit, I almost did try to say something to Scarred. Plus, someone told me I shouldn't rely too much on help from the janitor, as it might not help me in the long run.

For the longest time me and Absolution we're best friends, but Melkior has always been a drinking buddy. He's friendly if a little unsympathetic being a type of sex demon and all, he's a great wingman to have though.

Arch-nemisis though, well so far the spirit parasite is giving me a run for my money. I thought Dervan for a while but I haven't heard from him in years. I might hear from him soon however seeing as how Scarred Ana somehow took away his favorite toy.

Thanks, Scarred. I see you as my best friend too, helping me not be so cowardly and helpless in tense situations. my mentor, Falafaf would be a close second best friend of mine. I will do anything I can to keep her from harm.

As for arch nemesis, I can't really think of any as I try to be reasonable with others and try not to make people hate us. I try to view the world in other people's perspective and figure out why they do the things they do. Like Root for example: I feel he is tremendously misguided and oblivious in his actions, thinking he is building a utopia but not realizing he is creating a hell on earth scenario. I also feel the reason he does these terrible things is because he is being controlled to do so through the suggestions of his other selves and Andrew, even doing things he may tremendously disagreed with doing, just like when we have had Ana do things she did not want to do. But I know that his actions of killing so many innocent lives is unforgivable even if he thinks the ends justified the means, and must be stopped in some way. Really I feel he is just a very oblivious villain, and I think he needs some sense knocked into him.

I guess the closest arch nemesis of mine would be Spirit Parasite at the moment, but really, I don't feel hatred or fear towards her, just pity. The type of species she is I think requires her to do the things she does in her instincts, and I feel if she wasn't a parasite, she could have been a good person. But I'm not letting that thought cloud our goal of eliminating her. I know how much of a threat these spirit parasites are to the multiverse and the countless lives that live in it, and she must be eliminated so that I may protect Dreamwalker and Falafaf's lives more than anything. It's nothing personal.

...But I do remember that dream I had of that... thing that beheaded me when Dreamwalker sent me that silly dream of Stitch and WC. I nearly had a painful heart attack from fear when I woke up after seeing that face. I fear that creature may have had some kind of grudge against me in my past life, and I definitely have a lot of fear just thinking about that creature. Remember when I said that when I try to remember my past, I get an intense fear that prevents me from getting a clear vision of what my past life was like? I have a feeling that creature played a huge part of my past, and thinking about my past life brings up that creature. I can only hope that it didn't follow me somehow when the Ash Tree summoned me to help Ana. I can't confirm for sure, but based off of my fear on that creature, he may have been my arch enemy. I can only hope if we meet a different version of that thing, we don't become its enemy.

But at what costs?

who exactly was Essence and why did she hate the astral projections so much?

What happened to and where is Logan's future child?

Is future Falafaf really dead?

Did Fortune Ana's decision in killing of Spirit Parasite over her best friend's life awaken something dark within Fortune Ana?

Did the whole experience psychologically damage Scarred Ana?

Will Robbit's life be saved?

And what decision will Ana make? And after she makes her decision, will she allow the two Astral Projections to continue guiding her after everything that has happened in her quest?

Find out in the future exciting episodes of...

For shit and giggles I will answer all the question

The cost was over 9000

He is still connected with Ana

No she is not

I don't know you should ask her

I don't know you should ask her

If he agree we probably will

She will probably kill the voices start jogging, become a vegan, start a polygamous family, get a tattoo on her eye and begin doing yoga

Maybe some of these answers are lies

Hmm... not quite Essence. I do hate you yes, you are everything I despise in a person, mostly I see you as just a bully. But I'm not necessarily Anthony as you know him, I'm more or less here by mistake actually, had I known I was going to get a response I wouldn't have put my name as Anthony, but might as well make the best of it, I really should have seen that coming. The Anthony you know and love is a card in my hand, my dancing puppet as you like to put it. Think of me as a puppeteer from beyond the 4th wall. I'm highest and lowest, as you need me to live, but I am also effectively powerless to do anything to you. You can refer to me as Anthony if you like, or.... Meta-1, because that what this just got... Meta as fuck, and there is another...

As for the "demon" as you call her, I can go get one of them, but I guarantee, if I do, all that's going to happen is she will fly into a mad rage at the sight of Essence. Also you really should leave her, she was more or less the one responsible for it. She aimed the "demons" like a gun, always aware of what would happen if the world was destroyed but also never telling them the rules of the game. But, what if I were to tell you there was someone who could get your world back. Get your life back, all you have to do, is ditch her and I'll show you where to go. But probably not, like I said I'm here by mistake, probably some great universal law will come and stop me at any moment. We'll have to see.

Ooh, you could also refer to me as "Lawfull Good." If you what that is that should give you some idea of why I hate you Essence.

Also on second thought, this is technically cheating and way too meta for my taste. So ill just relinquish control of this back to Anthony as you know him. Right now he's asleep and dreamless. Forget you ever heard me.

See you arooouuund! *radio static*

As to who that someone is... well I have theories but honestly it's all a mystery. The most likely candidate that I can think of is someone named Andrew Goodwill. I think someone from your neck of the woods, a psychopath named Dervan has already met him.

And you are taking to the god of imagination about imagination. There's nothing that I haven't already seen in the minds of billions of people. And that includes ones from you world too.

Rest assured I have seen her with my own... eye. And I have someone who could also testify to her existence. He is someone that she has... something of an odd obsession with.

All your ideas are certainly plausible however. I will add on that if she did have an accomplice originally he's probably not around anymore. Either she left him behind or he is occupied with his own agenda. As for the red herring that is most certainly another plausible idea. She isn't above trickery and deceit.

Absurdity! Ana is in trouble and I need you call Robbit so he can get off his ass and save her! She is currently about to be eaten by the mad World painting, Robbit will know which one that is. PLEASE MOVE FAST!

Now why would Absurdity want to help you?

after you and Fortune Ana abandoned him for DeVoid? Can you even trust him?

And not only that, Absurdity got himself into a little mess,

and I'm not talking the literal mess he is cleaning right now, whether he realizes it or not...

you got him into that mess after you destroyed the universe

Dimensional tribunal is probably going to punish poor Absurdity for his actions of leaving this universe alone for vacation, all because Fortune Ana said she and you would take care of everything before he left

You could have accepted my help with the painting, Scarred Ana and not take the chance of having Absurdity help you or not after your actions

but you threw me out. Ah well, I'm enjoying the show anyway ;)

I'll talk to you later, Absurdity, after you have a moment to think, and we're alone.

inner thoughts: what a shame, and I wanted to let them incarcerate me so they can lead me to more interesting souls that I can feed to the void gate. It would have been a great all-you-can-eat buffet. But Demoria had to show up and ruin my fun... ah well, I'll be a good boy for now and let Demoria do the talking as I do the thinking.

still inner thoughts: but silver lining, these officers just revealed to me that there are some gods still hiding for me to look for and have the void gate devour and grow stronger. Perhaps these gods will make the void strong enough for me to have a chance to take down the Ash Tree for good. I just have to hope nobody else here knows who these gods are and tries to protect them.

... Why did I stay?

Humanity. I’ve walked in so many minds, known the lives and hopes and dreams of so many, and over time I’ve come to love them. I cared for humanity so much I chose to take away certain pains from them, giving them good dreams instead. I took their pain into me and that is what created my other self, Phobetor.

*glares at Marty*
I have known some humans who I honestly did love, some of whom I knew personally and I thought they were all beautiful people. Even certain members of the cult, whom I have sworn vengeance against, I know that they are good people at heart.

That is why I stayed.

You have quite a protective big brother instinct. You're worried that I might hurt your lovely sister in some way.

I admire your need to protect her. It makes me wish that a looooooong time ago before I met Demoria, I had someone that would protect me from this cruel mad mad world and would not betray me.

Do not worry, Mr Eyeball. She is a strong, hard working goddess. Compared to her, I'm just an ant. She even puts me in my place when I misbehave. Besides, I would do anything for her after she saved me, and shown me that I'm not just a poor depressed reject of this world. I only hope you come to accept our love

Mr. Eyeball, do you understand what it is like to protect someone near and dear to you?

like how Demoria protects my frail soul?

inner thoughts: hmmm, I don't think Mr. Eyeball is going away anytime soon, Demoria, especially since he is constantly glaring at me like that, making it difficult for me to get closer to the little Absuridty... Should I just strike little Absurdity now since he is only in an astral projection form, or should I wait until Mr Eyeball is gone or distracted?

Inner thoughts: *looks at mini Absurdity* Awww, and I really wanted to feed the void and prove myself...

Inner thoughts: Demoria,if we are truly leaving, we should find a new target right away. Right now, I'm thinking either Sindri, Brokk, or Haphestus, but the void might be too weak to consume either one of them... can you think of someone we can feed the void for a snack before breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Suggestor's note: all of this is in Fortune Ana's mind communicating with Dreamwalker

Sorry if I'm a little groggy... but I'm glad you can hear me. just give me a moment to catch my breath...

...

listen, I'm sorry I have to communicate like this, but after what happened, I need to take precautions.

I saw what was going on through my dreams. I'm assuming you, Dreamwalker, may have been keeping me updated while I was having fun in my little dreamworld. honestly, I feel like I want to go back to sleep and forget all this. Dreams are much more comforting than reality, but I can see you need me.

First things first: I think my voice may have been compromised. Before we spoke with Cera, Absurdity gave Ana two white totems that acted like radios for our voices to the physical world. After we went through that fiasco in the future, your friend, The Incubus Melkior, was given Scarred's white totem and her black totem, and my black Totem. However, my white totem was nowhere to be found. I do not know who has it right now, or if it has been destroyed by the future, but just in case someone who wants nothing more than to hurt us has it, I have to stay silent like this and can only communicate with my thoughts. That said, I don't know how communicating like this will effect Ana or the person you have formed a bond with, or if they will be able to hear me. That said, I may have to act not as their guides, but probably as your guide, Dreamwalker.

Second: I'm having doubts that I can properly keep Ana alive if we keep going down the route we've been taking. I know the Scarred really wants her to follow in her footsteps and be a hero and start a family with Logan without her son dying, but I think we've made too many mistakes for that to be a reality. And I can't get what Cera said about Ana confronting them leading to her death with the amount of times she'll get shot and injured out of my head. Ana has even said time and time again that she doesn't want to do this anymore. I can't bear to see her like that anymore, and I feel that is what I want to do, even if it means taking Dervan's offer for an exit. What I want to do is to do more research on the kind of person Dervan is to make sure he isn't the type of person we think he is before blindly taking his offer while Ana goes through looking into the past. Whether we take Dervan's offer or not, I can't allow Ana to try to confront our enemies anymore and just have her escape.

Third: If we decide to take Dervan's offer, that does not mean we will stop saving this world. the person you have bonded with, Dreamwalker, whom I will from this point be calling "Lucid" has expressed a great desire to save this world, something I have not seen Ana expressed on her own. I want to have a long discussion with Lucid about the consequences about choosing the hero path and if she still wants to save this world. Afterwards we will have her take Ana's place as the hero while We will still watch over and help Ana as she tries to escape with with her friends and family, whether we take Dervan's offer or not.

Fourth: I want to know if Ana truly wants me to still help her guide her. During the time we were sent to the future, I noticed that Ana did everything she could to find Scarred Ana's totem and even try to repair it to have Scarred talk to her again, but... I don't know if she even bothered to look for mine. Also, I noticed that when Future Ana tripped and fell, her left eye popped out... I use my left eye when I use my fortune telling ability. She may have at one point removed it herself because it reminded her too much of me. After we returned to the present, she refused to hear my story I was about to tell, she ignored my request to read Robbit's note, and she took Scarred Ana's path of threatening Cera instead of trying to leave things peacefully. I'm wondering if she truly wants my help, and if not, if I have wronged her in some way. I wouldn't blame her, I've made too many choices that harmed her, and I even abandoned her at one point.

Fifth: Dreamwalker, I wanted to ask you this, and I promise I will not get upset: when your partner told you that you need to consume the memories of others in order to gain strength, It got me wondering: after I was summoned by the ash tree... and before I met Ana at the bus stop... did you... by any chance... meet me and... consume my memories? Yes or No? Again, I won't get upset if you did, as it might have been for the best if I didn't remember my past like Scarred remembered hers. I just want to know why I remember next to nothing while Scarred remembers a lot of things in her past.

Sixth: you might not like what I might say, but I think Falafaf is on her way to death soon. remember the paper with the horns and Essence crossed off one of them after future Falafaf died? I do not think that means only future Falafaf is dead, I think that applies to present Falafaf as well, and she is marked for death. That said, to keep yourself from getting clouded by deep emotions, I don't want you to get too attached to her anymore. I'm not saying don't talk to her, just be prepared for that outcome.

Finally: Dreamwalker, you're injured and weak. I'm worried that your condition is going to hurt Lucid in a lot of ways very badly... which is why I have a request for you: your guide has told you that you needed to consume memories to grow stronger right? well here is my request: I want you to consume my knowledge of fortune telling, and my memory of Falafaf. After what I've done to future Falafaf, I feel I don't deserve this power. I never even asked for it in the first place, I just gained it by accident. Me having and using those powers after what I've done will only fill me with guilt and be an insult to her while you on the other hand never wanted Falafaf dead. If you take and use my fortune telling knowledge, I can at least be happy that her powers will live on through you rather than someone who just threw her life away. will you please accept this offer?
>>
No. 117581 ID: d8b9a6

Firstly no, that was not me who ate your memories. It is my understanding that you were summoned by the Ash Tree with only vague ideas of who you were. But I do know that you are the only one who won’t remember who you were, and that you are the only one who can remember things about yourself, so you need to figure out why you can’t remember, or more specifically, why you won’t allow yourself to remember.

I also you were Ana in another timeline, that much is certain. We have met before, you gave me something to hang on to. And I have chosen my own time and place to give it to you as per your instruction. I function the same way Absurdity does, and I have lived for so long... and between you and me, “Lucid” is not the first person I have bonded with. I like humans, and sometimes I’ve even loved them, I mean... how do you think Anthony got his powers?

As for Lucid being a hero, well to be honest that’s not really your call to make. Just as it is not Scarred’s call to make Ana a hero. I see ways that both of them can stand as heroes, the question is what will make them do such a thing. For Ana, something is going have to happen that lights a fire in her, for “Lucid” I suspect some form of tragedy may come into play. Honestly I just want the best for them.

And... I want the same for Falafaf... but... well I care about her.... A lot.... If she comes to me then I will do all I can to save her. But if it is best that I stay away... then I will.

As for me eating your memories... I mean I can. But here is the deal. Eating a memory creates problems for both me and you. For a time, you will feel like something is missing and you can’t find it. Some people I’ve seen be driven mad by it. And if it is a happy memory then that’s good for me but I’d also be depriving you of something you love. It is is a bad... look I know I’ve said this before, bur doing that is what creates Phobetor and it makes him stronger. I haven’t even told Lucid about it yet and I don’t know how she will react... So by eating your memories... you had better be damn sure. I’m not so weak that I need to constantly eat them. I’ve endured worse. Look, you’ve been constantly judging yourself thinking the worst, but what if I told you that some day Ana might need that vision of yours, that there might be some new people in her life that are questionable, you are her moral compass just as Scarred is her courage and Bravery, but both of you have kindness. So just don’t think so low about yourself. Alright?
>>
No. 117583 ID: ae9b99

note:all this is her thoughts communicating with Dreamwalker

...ok. I will think about it. To be honest, having this ability isn't really making me happy, and fills me with guilt but I appreciate keeping the memory erasing option open. Just know that I don't have much of a memory to begin with seeing as I can't remember the past, so it probably wouldn't be too bad...

I'm also worried about your physical and mental health. I feel you are pushing yourself too hard, and seeing you so damaged like that and yet doing so much multitasking and work makes me worry that you might actually have a "death wish" as the others have been telling you. I mean, I know you say you don't, but... maybe something is subconsciously telling you to hurt yourself like you are now. Like, maybe perhaps your alter ego, Phoboter, wants you to do terrible things to yourself until you pass out, or pass away. Or it could be Absolution's death is really eating at you, causing you to do this to yourself. Just know you don't have to do this yourself, I'll be here to help this time around.

What I suggest: don't start going out and try to escape right away. Take the time to stop and smell the flowers. You might actually be in a position where you can do some undercover research, see things from the other side's perspective and get some inside info, learn about the people in the area, perhaps have Lucid watch Godfrey's trial to help her understand what is going on and what she wants to do, have her find that bodyless person his body or find some friends and see if people they might be willing to escape later. Most importantly, try to use the time to rest. That is what Ana's physical body is doing, so should you. Rest is just as important as hard work believe it or not.

Also, it is important you tell Lucid about memory consuming and phoboter. If she made a pact with you, then it is important she understands. You should also really ask what she wants her end goals to be, have her think if she wants to help Ana, just escape, or any other goals.

I'll be willing to help you not as Lucid's guide, but as your guide seeing as I cannot use my voice, but only my thoughts. You'll guide her, while I'll guide you.
>>

>>117583
I wish I could rest, but I’ll rest once I am in a safe enough position to do so. And that involves keeping Lucid safe first. My Astral Projections are fine, but if she is hurt then so am I.

As for a supposed “deathwish” I don’t have that. Not anymore, that’s one of the other reasons why I bonded with Lucid, and why... I want to protect Falafaf... They give me something worth living for again...

And I will accept your offer, and I’ll also give you this piece of advice, when you regain your memory and Scarred restores what once was broken, then Ana shall receive my gifts that once you carried.

Alright I’m gonna gonna go check up on the Lucid and the investigation. See ya.

Hey, mind if I talk with you while you wait? Something just occurred to me. You know what I don’t understand?

Why us? Why are we the only other selves to really come forward to help Ana? I remember when we first started there were more, we each had some modicum of identity to help Ana, but we are all that remains. Why?

Then I started to think. What if that’s why Essence hates us? It’s clear she is one of us, another self, another Ana, just twisted and perverted somehow. What she WAS with is in the beginning? What did we do that silenced her? Fuck what if there are a thousand other’s like her all angry because we somehow, by some means we don’t understand, came out on top.

True... But you know what I still don’t get? How did she do that? And if we are other selves of Ana drawn forth by the Ash tree or fate or god or whatever, then did she have otherselves as well? Did we have them on our journey?

And I have one last theory as to how we are the only ones left. What if we remain, because we are literally the best of the best. I know that sounds stupid, an amnesiac and a failed hero, but think about it. If we got our powers back, assuming you had powers, we might be even more powerful then Essence ever was. If she is the one who took it the others, maybe there is something about us that makes it impossible to do to us what she did to the others.

Look at Root, he is like Ana, he had otherselves as well, but Andrew killed them all off or silenced them somehow. Now he is all that remains. What if Essence was trying to do the same thing?

thoughts: Scarred, you can hear me right?

thoughts: Tell Triumphant that we are actually undercover and speaking with Essence right now, and we've learned quiet a few things, though she seems to be losing her sanity right now.

thoughts: also, Essence, as sick and twisted as she is, does seem to have a tiny bit of feelings. I've seen her cry in sadness over watching a timeline get destroyed, and I've heard her mentioned that she is in love with someone named "Happy" though she is planning to have Ana and Happy rule over and destroy the universe. She may have cursed/trying to curse Ana and Happy to fall in love, and make/made it so that if Ana dies, Happy dies, or if Happy dies, Ana would die.

thoughts: Also, off topic, tell Triumphant that Dervan gave Ana his business card and offered her and 9 other people a way for her to escape this universe. I am considering it so she can be away from everyone trying to use her, but from what we've learned about Dervan's history, and has talked with Andrew a few times, we're worried we would just send Ana into trouble. Ask Triumphant if Dervan can be trusted, ask him for as much info about Dervan.

Actually guys, I'm undercover right now. She think's im a voice in her own head. Insane as she is, she just slashed her own wrist. So she may be dying soon but I'm not holding out for anything honestly. There's not much she can do to surprise or impress me at this point.

What i've discovered is her ultimate goal is to get Ana to fall in love with someone called "The Happy Tragedy Phantom." No clue who he is supposed to be though. But basically she wants to wipe the timelines completely. Think of it like making everyone's suffering go away by destroying everything. I think she may have cursed Ana so that their fate's are intertwined, if HTP dies then Ana dies, and vice versa, this is just a working theory though. We'll see.

Also Triumphant, are you familiar with a guy named Daro? Daro has let it be known that he is a less than savory guy, and willingly associates himself with someone in our world who is also not a great guy named Andrew Goodwill, and this guy openly calls himself a demon.

Now... You know what has me worried? I'm sorry if this sounds selfish, but what does that mean for me and Fortune? Did we even exist? If the only reason we are here was because of Essence's soul in a tree, then what does that mean for us? I don't want to believe that my life, the memories that I cherish are nothing but a falsehood. It's funny I'm okay with me dying to save Ana and destroying Essence, but I don't want to die knowing that who I am is just shadow of Essence. Is that wrong of me?

I think I can answer those questions about Dervan, don’t know why you didn’t ask me about him sooner Triumphant. good to see you Absurdity, I’ve been working with Triumphant here for a while now. In fact this is the only other astral projection I have going. I’ve been trying to consolidate carefully.

Anyway, no you can’t trust him. Anyone who openly admits to being a serial killer and enjoying killing their victims slowly isn’t someone you want to be around. And yes, he told me he did that in so many words. To make a long story short Triumphant, he got a hold of a knife of mine.
*eyes Robbit*
But because he didn’t know how to activate it properly it was just a dull piece of metal to him, but he still used that to kill. Luckily Scarred Ana has the ability to summon weapons and summoned the knife away from him. So he no longer has it. He’s taunted me on numerous occasions and I would not be surprised if he is playing both fields working with Andrew and Essence.

thoughts: Absurdity was the one who gave Ana the white totems. I need to know, does it records and plays out ONLY my voice, or my does it record my voice, AND my thoughts as well, like as I am thinking right now? I'm assuming it is only my voice and not my thoughts.

thoughts: My favor to Triumphant is to do some research on Dervan so we can get a better idea on him, though he doesn't really need to. It might make Dervan suspicious. Plus, Triumphant is already busy.

Thoughts: I'm worried about Esael. I know Triumphant isn't worried, but I am. The worst things possible seems to keep happening lately, and I am preparing for the worst.

thoughts: I wonder how Robbit's meeting with the Curtains Phantom went? if Curtains Phantom can save Ana instead of Dervan, great... But I've also been wondering for a while why Robbit had Black Tomato send Ana to Cera when he knew we wanted nothing to do with Root's cult?

Thoughts:... I should apologize to Robbit and Dreamwalker. it looks like future Falafaf is being used by Essence as a zombie. She wants to use her as a "bargaining chip". I don't think she can be saved. I take full responsibility for that one as I chose to sacrifice her to save the universe from a spirit parasite.

Thoughts: Essence is also using Flint's body as another zombie, some kind of television headed monster, and Scarred Ana's arm as another ally. I think she is right now trying to find a corpse to use as my copy.

thoughts: right now, Essence thinks I'm out of commission, still asleep. That is why I am laying low and watching Scarred's conversation with Essence from a distance in case she fails. I prefer to have Essence think I am gone for as long as possible. That is why I am not using my voice.

thoughts: so it does only record my voice, not my thoughts. That is a relief. Until I can find out that my white totem is in safe hands, or destroyed, I will still keep telepathically communicating to you all through my thoughts.

*picks up Moon Card from pocket and shuffles it around with her fingers* thoughts: Dreamwalker, in order for us to get information out of our target, Scarred Ana needed to roleplay as one of her imaginary friends. While we were able to get juicy information out of her, However, her imaginary friend that Scarred Ana is roleplaying turns out to be a sick freak who gets off from seeing other people tortured, and our target is torturing our friend badly as our friend is wishing for death. Scarred had to play along with the torture because if she is found out not to be who she claims she is, that would mean our target will kill our friend on the spot

thoughts:...Scarred Ana, I can roleplay as our target's other imaginary friend, but I need you to know the following

thoughts: first, Scarred, I want you to find out what the other imaginary friend is like in personality. I need to know as to play that role of the other imaginary friend properly. Perhaps start the conversation asking if she has seen them somewhere. Not now though as right now would not be a good time. Just when the opportunity arises to change the subject properly, ask our target.
Second, Dreamwalker, if Triumphant will allow it, I want Dreamwalker to temporarily leave the astral projection he is using here as to not overexert himself when he creates a new one and searches for my white totem. Currently, I can only think of two spots it might be: with Anthony as I keep having a hunch he might have it, or Cera as she might have it somehow. If Anthony has it, great. whisper to him to hide it somewhere soundproof so Scarlet does not hear it so we can give it to Triumphant later, or tell him to destroy it to render it useless. Keep in mind that I can probably just communicate with our target through my thoughts like I'm doing now, but I have a feeling she will at some point want me to speak with my voice at some point during my undercover

thoughts: Triumphant, speaking of totems, you should know that Robbit has given The Incubus Melkior our black totems after Essence switched our white totems when we came back from the past. I don't know how that helps out on things unless Robbit wants to tell us, but maybe that can help you in some way.

I know it we would probably lose connection with this universe just the same if we would kill her but... I want to know our options. Can she be saved from her prison, or is she so far gone that she needs to be killed?

thoughts: Umm... that said, I don't know if we should hear the advice as much as I'd want to. From what I understand, Absurdity's job is, or rather was as this universe's janitor was to be more of an observer of this universe, not take sides, and not grow attached to anyone living in that universe, or give advice. To be kind of like a game master in a D&D game for comparison

As for me being a "God" I am what I am, and what I am is just another being who has people he cares about and wants to see the best for them.

No. 118646 ID: ae9b99

Thoughts: hey Robbit? which world would you say is worse? the one you originated from, the one you created, or the universe that Ana lives in?

Thoughts: And Absurdity, sorry if I've been sounding cold and distant recently, but really, I'm trying hard not to play the victim and not ask for pity anymore. Indeed I know the world treated unfairly to Ana, our Allies, and ourselves... but are we really the only ones that were hurt unfairly by that world? I mean, to be honest, I don't think I've seen much people that were actually truly happy and treated fairly. A lot of people I've seen are suffering in this world, not just us. Some suffering even more than we are. Just to name a few of many I can think of, that person that fell off that building after being burnt, Clara being beaten within an inch of her life, Matilda being falsely accused even though she did nothing at the time, Anthony and the people he unintentional hurt with his artwork, and having trouble distinguishing between dreams and reality... (OH! sorry Dreamwalker for being the one to tell you that)

thoughts: and... *looks at moon card* an entire timeline, along with "The Bringer of Nightmares" literally being destroyed. I can think of more, but we'd be here all night.

thoughts: Now I kindly ask, Absurdity. Not that I don't appreciate the help, but out of curiosity: out of so many suffering people because of how the universe is treating them currently, why choose to help us instead of so many others?

Thoughts: That said, you can give us a hint if you want, but I guess part of me wants to try to get you back into the position you were before, Absurdity.

...

thoughts: speaking of The Bringer of Nightmares, I am suddenly wondering if she will come back in some way? I mean, if Scarred Ana and I came from our timelines, wouldn't "The Bringer of Nightmares" been summoned here too in some way by the Ash Tree as an astral projection like us after she died? Or maybe... perhaps... ummm...

thoughts: And I'm actually a little surprised to hear that Robbit's old dimension is far worse than Ana's, considering he's been tortured from ours after Essence made him suffer as her slave for so long during many years. And you saying your universe you created was your favorite, I thought you said when we first spoke to you that your favorite universe was the universe of Bazilio, Lulu and with.

Him (Absurdity) not doing anything while the world is getting destroyed is a real problem. I don't care if he is the janitor, game master in a D&D or even the god of this woorld, he should have done something"

thoughts: and yet just now, when Absurdity decides to help us, you angrily remarked his actions saying "That is not your (Absurdity's) code of conduct, you are supposed to be neutral in all of this"

My stance is not ask Absurdity for help. If she wants to cheat and have the tenth question actually be four more questions, or have it be her turn forever until Laura dies, so be it, but I'm not stooping to her level to purposely cheat right back like having Absurdity influence things again. I have a little more respect to this "story" than to do something like that. I want to figure something else out.

thoughts: If Absurdity chooses to do something about her actions, it will be his own decision, not mine. I want nothing to do with that.

thoughts: Besides, if Devoid is preventing us from asking certain questions to prevent cheating and making things a fair fight, then surely he'll do something to stop Essence from cheating and making this fair.

...
When did you become so cold? Dreamwalker and Laura could die and you want to do nothing or try to find some other way? Fortune, think this one through.

Yes I understand why Absudity might not want to do it, but would DeVoid really step in to do anything? He’s already shown he can see this and speak to us. If he wants to step in he’d better do it soon.

And that’s just the thing though, if she is attempting to play unfairly, then I’ll beat her unfairly. We never cheated once that whole game, the only help we had was Absurdity stepping in of his own volition. And I don’t know about you but I am tired of taking her crap and I just want her to leave us alone. And out of respect for this “story” I say the power to influence should remain in the hands of those who deserve it, not me, not you, and certainly not HER.

If you have some other ideas other than our only current options besides dodge like we’ve never dodged before I’m all ears, but that’s not undertale is played, so if you’ve got and idea, let’s hear it, otherwise we’re stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Sometimes we just have to be realistic.

Let me ask you something Fortune, what is it that you want? What do you want out of all of this? I’ve held the reins a long time now, and to be honest, this new you... it scares me.

You don’t smile as much as you used to, you’re just... cold. What kind of epiphany did you have to make you like this. Because once upon a time you would talk me down from my rage and keep me line, now it seems I’m trying to do the same but remind you of your humanity.

So what is that you want?

thoughts: Now I would like to ask some questions regarding the Mad World Painting. I also want Triumphant to help with the visualization.

thoughts: Rabbot, if I remember, there was supposed to be a protective layer to prevent Mad World from eating people or prevent him from hitchhiking on people.
First, I want to know mainly what this protective layer looks like, how big is it, is it immediately noticeable when it is put on the painting? I assume it must be something pretty strong prevent Mad World from doing devious things.
Second, I want to know when this protective layer was put on the painting.

thoughts: Triumphant, if you can based off his description, please show what the painting would look like with, and without the protective layer.

The frames are different...

The one on the left is the one Ana saw, and the one on the right is the one Robbit is showing us.

The one Ana saw does have that symbol on the frame.

Someone knew she would be showing up and set Mad World up either knowing, or hoping he would try to kill Ana. The only questions are, who did it, and does Mad World know who switched them?

thouhgts:...Well yeah, Scarred. Robbit already told us about those symbols. What he explained makes sense and isn't odd at all... but that isn't what I found odd.

thoughts: But what I am thinking is odd is the very first time I saw Mad World, Scarred. and no, the first time I saw him was not when Ana was going to get eaten by him when I watched her in my dreams... believe it or not, I've seen him before with dreamwalker. Best if I showed you. Scarred, please explain this contradiction to me. What do you see?

I see him...

I vaguely remember Dreamwalker being there but I don’t recall entirely. Perhaps we should just ask him?

thoughts: Don't ask Dreamwalker now, Scarred. Don't want Essence hearing this.

thoughts: Also, have you noticed the frame around Mad World from when we first met him is completely different, Scarred? Please tell me I'm not the only one who noticed.

No. 120425 ID: ae9b99

thoughts: specifically, the frame around mad world when I first saw him with Dreamwalker is a lot more standard and minimalist than the detailed protective frame Ana saw before she was about to get murdered by it, and the one Robbit showed us just now. Your thoughts on this Scarred?

I think we need to get a list of suspects of who could have done it. We should start by figuring out who was there that could have done it.
I know we can cross Dreamwalker and Robbit off the list. Dreamwalker has already shown that he is in our camp, and besides he’s already shown that he wants AJ to live and grow and he can’t do that if Ana is dead.
Robbit, while he definitely had the means, I don’t think he had motive.

If you want my opinion I think it might have been that mini Robbit. He was watching up until I saw him and at that point he got scared and ran away. However, I don’t think he knew what was happening. I think he was told to do it by someone who knew what would happen....

Thoughts: hm, well Triumphant, if it is alright with you, when you are ready to investigate that dimension, would it be alright if I followed you? *whispers* Last I checked, Lorence is there, and he prevented me from looking for clues, using a curator to kick me out. Embarrassing, I know.

thoughts: And Robbit, I'm ready to ask you now, I'm interested in knowing: when we first entered your dimension, and you showed us the Vesnig Deeviat family members portrait, why was Mad World in a totally different frame instead of the frame which you can activate or deactivate to prevent Mad World from eating people?

inner thouhgts: wow, Robbit has good hearing to hear me whisper to Triumphant. Should keep that in mind

thoughts: Well first, before we start pointing fingers, I should say I believe Lorence is not the one who deactivated Mad World painting. When Ana was getting eaten, Lorence was talking to the Ambassador in his mansion. He has an alibi.

thoughts: Anyway, Robbit, Falafaf didn't tell you? I assumed you knew. Falafaf invited Lorence for a date.

thoughts: but that now raises some questions: why didn't she tell you? and why would she risk having him over for a date... unless she knew through her predictions that you, Robbit, were going to get kidnapped by Essence, and taken in here by Dervan, eliminating that risk... That would probably mean her date is more important than warning you about what was going to happen to you, Rabbot...

thoughts: though, these are just theories. She was, for a little bit, thinking about canceling the date to help us.

thoughts: but now I must ask, you said that Mad World is only able to move to different paintings when the protective layer is not placed in front of it. when Dreamwalker and I first entered your endless hallway of your paintings, why wasn't the protective layer placed in front of it? you said you guys put on the layer when new people show up, and Dreamwalker and I were new to the hallway at the time. Mad World should not have been able to do that at the time

thoughts: And Triumphant, if you are going to investigate, we should do it soon, Essence is distracted and in the final round. Afterwards, she'll be active again and try to steal clues from us.

thoughts: But I still want to know these final two questions before we head out soon:

thoughts: Absurdity, did you ever give Falafaf a doll of yourself endorsing her fortune telling?

thoughts: Rabbot, why wasn't the protective layer on the painting when Dreamwalker and I first entered your dimension? I can understand if it wasn't required if the painting didn't effect me, but it could have harmed Dreamwalker as I don't think he was an astral projection at the time. Need to know so I have an idea of when the protective layer is put on the painting, and when someone might have removed it.

thoughts: I see... Thanks for your cooperation both of you. There are some things that are troubling, like the doll you never given... this wasn't the first time she lied to me... also, you both given me a lot to think about, and confirmed some of my suspicions.

thoughts: For the record, Dreamwalker entered the hall first, and than I entered second. It wasn't just us voices. but you were watching Mad World at the time, so that makes sense. Makes me wonder if Mad World fed any of our enemies information from spying on us at the time... he is in the attic, right? might want to make sure nobody goes in there when Triumphant starts his investigation there...

thouhgts: My last question for you regarding Mad World was when exactly did you activate the protection for Ana's arrival? just to give us an idea of when it could have been deactivated.

thoughts: Triumphant, is there anything else you'd like to ask before you start the investigation? As I said, we should probably head out soon, not to sound annoying and to rush things.
