You are River la Croix, and you're pretty sure this half-angel is not out of fight to give you.

You took the bait once, in a battlefield years ago, in the rain and mud. You should have died, but the one who'd tricked you was ran through the back by mistake, and you lived instead of her.

This time, you're going to be careful.

>> No.48235020

"Who says I want to have a fight?" you ask. "There's more to being a god than temples and cults, isn't there? Even if it's just worship you're after, there's lovers and poets the world over with legions falling at their feet. Why a goddess?"

"Why /not/?" the Daughter demands. "I bring the rain and the drought. I call the snow and the flood, the storm and the calm, part hurricanes before my will, bless the spring and make it holy. These powers are /mine/. My /father/ could not take them from me. Who are the gods, anyway? They and their bastard offspring lord over us like highborn dogs, laughing as we scurry to and fro, and we obey."

<I sense a hint of bitterness> Robert notes, mildly.

"And you would, what, be a mortal voice in the councils of the gods?" you ask, warily. "Don't they have Chosen for that?"

"Obedient wolves, there to herd the rest of the sheep," Seraphina snarls.

"You really think the Master is going to keep his word? He's enslaved one angel already. He'll enslave you just the same."

"I. AM. A. GOD!" a blast of wind erupts from Seraphina, driving you back on your feet and flickering the flames that keep her hemmed into Cannot Hold. Behind her, you see Tina thrust her hand into the flame, preparing for battle.

"Do you think his audacity ends there?" you shout, over the gale. "You think you come out of this on top?"

>> No.48235101

"He wouldn't /dare/," Seraphina insists. She takes a step over the hexacle, her wings bristling with fury. The water that drips from them freezes, becoming long, sharp icicles. "I would tear him apart."

"Which is why you're the meatshield, and he's safe at the bottom of the Dungeon."

<Are we killing her or not?> Robert asks.

"I am his partner! His collaborator! He /adores/ me, /worships/ me, his new world will be his bridal gift to /me/, and nevermind that coward Taylor." The nephilim flicks her wings; the muffled snap of them is like an accusation. "Not that I care. My bed has not been empty. You stole my soldier, necromancer."

"People aren't property," you answer back, coldly.

Behind you, the succubus pulls her hands from the flames, and they are wreathed in hellfire.

When you lost your eyes, I can bet that he wasn't sad that you were hurt, but frustrated that a tool had been damaged.

Face it, you're as much his slave as your followers are yours. Any power he gave you, any control, came with a cost. All you've done is just made yourself subordinate to his will.

If you really want to prove yourself to be worthy of a god's respect, you'd be able to do it without the machinations of a third party propping you up."

"What happened to you?" you ask. "Who hurt you so bad that you need validation from scum like the Master? What're you trying to prove? To who?"

"I need prove /nothing/. My will is law! My word is glory!"

"Was he even sad when you lost your eyes?" you ask, softly.


"You need to calm down," you tell her, and channel death through your blade. The colors die around it, spreading out in a wave of stillness and sorrow. Seraphina lunges for you and crosses the line into the domain projected by your blade - and halts.

She sinks to her knees, a choked sob escaping her lips.

"Even Jack managed to fight through this," you whisper. "Show me something, Seraphina. Show me something happy in there, something good. Show me the part of you that can fight this."

"Make it stop," the half-angel begs. She clutches her head, tearing at her hair; her wings folds in front of her body, trying in vain to shield her. "/Make it stop/!"

"Seraphina," you murmur. "Sleep can't rob you of your joy or your virtue. I know. I tested it on myself before I ever dared to use it on someone else. Dig deep. Find something worth saving."

Her hand goes to the chain at her waist, and then she lets go of it with a wretched sob. It takes a moment for you to hear what she's saying.

"I'm nothing," she moans. "I am unworthy."

I don't think we're trying to convert her - even she admitted that there was noting in her worth redeeming.

I do, however, think she would make a good prisoner. She seems to have incredible knowledge on Dick and his various plots, and I think we could gain a lot from interrogating her.

>> No.48236793

>> No.48236987

"There's something in there or you wouldn't have gotten this far," you murmur softly. "I won't kill you, Seraphina."

The pure relief in her wracking sob is almost heartbreaking.


You touch the flat of your blade to the side of her head and send a surge of death down it, letting the death-in-steel of Sleep's blade convert it to stillness and quiet. The nephilim stiffens, then slumps over, and you stop feeding the blade.

You'd expected Sleep to take more out of you, but it doesn't. It's remarkably easy to use it for this, and you're not sure how you feel about that.

"What did you do to her?" Tina asks, her voice small and afraid.

"I made her face every bad thing about herself and her life that she's ever avoided," you answer. "I don't think she was ready."

It takes some wiggling, but you get the chain down Seraphina's legs and off of her body.

"Lora?" you say, holding it. "It's River."

Freezing fog billows into the room, extinguishing Tina's wards. Lora steps from it, her arms folded across her chest. "Is there a reason that shackle is still intact?" the angel asks, coldly.

"I want to know what you're going to do with Seraphina," you tell her.

"Her fate is none of my affair, I think. I intend on giving her back to her father. And giving /him/ a piece of my mind."

Is pretty sound reasoning, she turned into a power hungry maniac the last time her dad disciplined her.

A couple talks with her should be interesting, as she could probably tell us much about Dick's Operations.

I think the anon meant Laura when he said angel.

Then again, being an angel doesn't make you wiser or smarter or anything. Didn't Laura tell us about how even the gods don't always know what they're doing?

>> No.48237856

> No

Fuck it. Let's give her a job and some responsibility. Lord knows we have too much shit going on.

Maybe adopt her into the LaCroix family? God knows they'll give her something to feel worthy doing. And her crippling lack of faith in herself fits right in.

>> No.48237866

I know this is probably bait, but you're not even wrong really.

>> No.48237882

To be fair, it seems like she was a power hungry maniac because she is desperate for affection.

I wonder if we could ask the Succubus about this. I mean, it's really more her thing than ours, or Loras, or the Gods.

Hell, we could just ask Lora to put off sending her away until we can talk to other people about what to do.

We're dealing with a bunch of immortals here, no sense making a snap judgement we'll regret.

Let's set her up with the Hatchet man. They can find happiness together, especially since she just really seems to want someone to love her since she has so much trouble loving herself.

>> No.48237917

Eh, mostly it seems like we don't really have the time to deal with this kind of self-loathing.

You know, the ones that Bri, River, and Jewel to some degree share that they're terrible people at heart who don't deserve love and people only think they love them because they don't know the REAL person.

I think the Daughter could really use someone to say "Here, go forth and do this thing of value and know that even if you are a terrible person, your actions don't have to be" as well as warning them when they're going Zombie Army.

This has been a fight with a very, very lonely person. Hell, even us just standing up to Lora and the Daughter's father might be enough to help her out. Especially if we don't ask her for anything in return.

>> No.48238014

Hatchet seems to have a thing for Lora, if their interaction was any indication.

>> No.48238089

Lora is untouchable and probably gay at this point anyways. Most rape victims that are sexually attracted to women stop being fans of the cock.

We were going to use them to make a compass that could point to a heart's desire, which is what Hatchet wants.

A gay guy. I think that's less an indication of what she's actually into a more a sign that good god she's got ego problems in both directions. She has absurdly inflated fantasies about her own importance while also thinking that she's completely worthless at the same time. Bitch be crazy.

Well we gotta find at least one lesbian or hetero girl somewhere or else where's the diversity

>> No.48238486

Eh, River's adoption was partly because she was ignorant of the crimes she committed against the dead, and she truly sought redemption. And obviously, becoming a LaCroix is not a magical solution to fixing a person.

To be fair, a lot of demons and angels are fairly sexless, and while some might have a 'preferred' gender or form, they can be whatever they damn well want to be. The rules are very different for them.

Missy Brooks, Diving Shadow, River...

Vox's characters are well-built, and unlike a lot of other quests AND well-known vidya (*cough* Bioware *cough*) their personalities aren't based off their sexual preferences.

If we do hand her over to her dad, we have to know what is going to happen to her first since we would be responsible for it. I say let's call up Daddy and negotiate.

I don't think this is a good idea at all. Right now neither of them has anything positive to teach. The only thing they'll be teaching each other are their flaws and uncertainty.

I could support this way of going about it, the only reason I am not changing my vote from alright is that I really really think we should let the insane half angel that does not even really want to be a good person anywhere near free or joining the family or half the plans that the rest of you came up with.

You spare a glance for Tina and see the succubus /shaking/. Wide green eyes stare at you in disbelief and fear.

"You're gonna want to not be here for this," you suggest.

Wordlessly, she shakes her head, and stays where she is. It wasn't technically an order, you suppose.

"I want to meet her father before I consign her to him," you tell Lora. "From what I've told, this -" you nudge Seraphina faintly with your boot, "is at least partly his fault."

"...Fair enough. Is there a reason you need to be holding that chain?"

"Because if I break it, you're on a timer before someone notices you're gone and calls you away," you point out.

Lora blinks, holds up a finger, lowers it, frowns, and finally sighs. "You're not wrong."

"I like to think I'm clever most of the time. Cigarette?"


You pass the angel a smoke, dig one out for yourself, and light it. You each take a moment to enjoy it before Lora stoops down and plucks a single hair from Seraphina's head. She tosses it into the air and says a name, in firm tones of command: "Matariel."

Pictures of Rain Choir angels usually depict them as storms or rays of sunlight. Matariel is neither, though he evokes both; his body, all of water-filled ice, is sharp and lean, with wings made of delicate, melting frost and eyes that crackle with electricity. You can see bones and organs pulsing inside of the swift currents that form his flesh, especially in his face, which forms an expression of puzzlement right before Lora decks him to the floor with a closed fist.

"Nice to see you, brother," Lora growls. "We need to talk."

Matariel rubs his jaw but, wisely, stays down. "Aphrael."

"Call me that one more time and I'll put my sword through you and your whore daughter."

from how I interpreted it, it was just the opposite if you were a complete sociopath you would be completely incapacitated and sobbing on the floor, however if you used it on somebody like Nate it would have basically no effect as it cannot rob joy or virtue. The fact the half angel could even talk is why River thought there was at least something of value there.

That weapon is terrifying and I love it.

>> No.48241160

Sleep, despite River's phrasing, is not a moral judgement. It's misery; every awful thing that's ever happened to you, everything you've ever hated about yourself, every long day, rough fight, and disappointment, combined with a draining physical lethargy. River and Jack fought through it by holding on to the things that get them through those bad times - their hopes, friendships, ideals.

Seraphina's coping mechanism is denial. It didn't work well.

'Fetish' talk? Sure I'll add my thoughts. Analysis ahoy.

I like how the sexuality of girls in DLQ are products of their lives, and in a world where repression is nearly nonexistant it makes some things that we would consider "immoral" and "filthy internet culture" into just another part of who someone is. Sure it could be argued that Isoldt is into sadism because she's a succubus and that's just what succubi do, but the fact that Vox has made the world such that it could be pressumed that she'd be into other things as an individual and conplex being that makes it all the more.. attractive. She isn't a one dimensional cumdumpster, and while others may be into that, I find authenticity all the more compelling.

Might as well run down the list and state my thoughts on each character, as I've spent a lot of time thinking about them and whatnot.

So, Bri - to be frank, she doesn't do it for me. It's partly because she's the MC, of our ability to influence the world vicariously through her. I relate and connect with her moreso than I want to have sex with her, I want to watch her struggle and surpass challenges moreso than I want to swoop in and save her and the day myself. Being in someone's head as we are in this written format takes away some of what makes the otherness of characters so alluring, but Vox is still subtly good enough to not let that get in the way of the other characters.

Amy, the first "waifu," and possibly a large reason this relationship hasn't fallen apart from internal stress. None of the birdgirl elements do much for me (the animalification of people has never been all that sexually spurring), though how it reflects how she acts is interesting anyway. After thinking about it, both of the girls I've had in quests - Carla and Ema (don't blame you for not knowing the second one) - have similar personalities. They all are energetic, generally flirtatious (though also childish-ish), and more than ready to kick ass when the time comes.

So there is inherently something about Amy that I am drawn to, as I can see how something similar has arisen in the subconsious behind why I crafted my own characters the way I did. Her posivitivity is a definite plus, also how she tries her hardest to raise up Nathan's or Bri's moods when they're down.

Before I had thought of her as the perfect support character. The extremely not shitty Yuffie of DLQ, if you will. Though it's much more than that: she is supportIVE in a way that far outreaches the anime trope of wanting the MC's dick and doing anything to preserve said dick. There's a loyalty there that runs far deeper, and to imagine that we the collective facilitated that loyalty with our/Bri's actions..

Let's just say that Amy gets better and better the more I think about her. I say we did a good thing with this tri-Relationship, and watching it grow has been heart melting in certain moments.

To switch gears a little to someone I may actually could see myself trying to be with: River - as Amy falls under the realm of Bri's waifu moreso than mine, and while I can connect through Bri's attraction it's the narrative function itself that I like rather than my personal feelings for the character.

River, the ex-merc turned deathwielding necromancer is in an intriguing and possibly compelling place. She is a beautiful elf girl who had her hopes and dreams snuffed out for the hard life of mindlessly eating, fucking, sleeping, killing, and repeat. Now she's been given a new revival at being alive and she's, in an odd sense, fragile in her certainty and ironically naive about the steps of love. Just put yourself in Lark's shoes for a moment. Here is a girl who has fought and killed more than you could possibly hope to do in a lifetime, and yet there is still something adorable about her that makes you want to care and show her what it means to love. Not to pity mind you, because we, like Lark, have no idea how this "love" thing will work with her.

The reason why I'm drawn to River is the realization that no, she isn't perfect nor ever will be. Someone that's honestly alluring while obviously(ish) broken? I don't care for the White Knight I Must Protect the Weak bullshit, but in this case I can see how an integral part of that trope resonates with people. By allowing someone to be weak in your presence, i.e. being able to emotionally or physically protect them, you can't help but feel like you want to relate and simply BE with them.

River, obviously, doesn't need to be protected from the world. Rather, I feel she needs to be protected from herself as we all do, and I would be more than alright with a mutual emotionally-protective pact with her. Maybe that's just a silly overcomplication of what Love is, but isn't finding what suits a personal definition of "love" a massive part of sexual attraction in the textual medium? I mean sure, if I were placed in a bed with any of these girls and they had every desire in the world to fuck my brains out I'd be down, but actual attraction is.. different.

That's possibly why the whole "fetishization" concept doesn't really resonate with me. Can I pull up /d/ or whatever somewhere and find something that peaks my dick's interest? Absolutely. Does that mean I want to obsess over it and try to take actual human behavior and project a fetishy lense over it? Eh, I just don't see the point.

Now before I meander off in my thoughts - and because interaction is FUN - any girls you want me to give my two cents to? Those two are definitely my "best girls," though I've rarely disliked any of them.

Oh, Brigette's talent of being able to seduce via the power of music and her simple being was totally the hottest fucking thing I've read in this whole quest, though I'll always be swayed by brilliant music and a sensual aura/touch. Shame she's bitter, chained, and a practical alcoholic.

Onto Nate.

Similar to Amy, he is confined to his narrative position as Bri's lover and thus most of my thoughts on him as a relationship partner has been tailored to how he suits Bri (and Amy, of course). Unlike her though, I simply can't see myself ever "getting with" Nathan for a number of reasons, from the fact that I don't get the same level of attraction I described with the female characters that I get with men to how I doubt I could be his Type and he mine. Though I've never cared to swing that way in my experiences, I can absolutely understand how guys are attractive and cute and what have you. I appreciate but I feel no need to participate, something that I simply don't feel about fictional guys.

Regardless, Nathan is still one of my favorite character for this reason: he is a shonen protagonist done RIGHT and AUTHENTICLY. He had most of the traits from the very beginning: high dreams of achieving heroic deeds, a desire to protect those close to him, a level of estrangement from regular society, powers that he kept secret for fear of being percecuted for but allows him to fight brilliantly, a general nice guy persona that tries his best to please the most people, and the ladies do love to fawn over him for his goodness. I'm sure I'm missing a few other key traits, but you get the picture - Nathan is in every sense of the word a Hero with a capital H.

All of this is before Bri kills him and drags him along with her quest through the Dungeon, giving him a taste of what actually being a Hero is in reality. From that moment on he left the cliche of his trope and became an actual human being. Even his bitching about the world can be slotted into the trope, the example that comes to mind is the MC of Gundam Unicorn. When Nathan is depressed, it isn't for eliciting contrived drama in a particular moment nor the result of his idealistic standard clashing with large decisions; instead, he's depressed because Amy had a fiancé she didn't tell him about.

Nathan the true person arose and developed in his moments of pettiness far more than his moments of participating in the shonen architype. Because of that when it came time for the conflict with Natalia, however disappointing that scene ended up becoming, we were able to relate to his tension despite how it might compare to an anime protagonist in a similar situation.

Nate is the best person he thinks he can be, and through Bri and Amy he is unknowingly made even better as time goes on. He is a good counterbalance for the other two, a fine leader, a hardworking subordinate, and even in his weakest moments a strength always guides him forward. He is Good not because the story demands that the Hero Must be Good - he is good because he choses to be, because he wants to be.

He also doesn't try and hide this from the people around him like certain Edgy Characterless Cool Guy Heroes we see all the time nowadays. When Bri, and eventually Amy, fall for him, they appear to be falling for the actual him rather than any persona he projects because of a lack of said persona. It's hard not to like the guy, and even harder to imagine him not being your friend if you met him somewhere.

After saying all of this, I find it rather difficult to transition to the fem-doming fantasy, so let me say this - Nathan would enter such a situation willingly, though perhaps with some reservations and concerns. He'd do it for his lovers and, while I am uncertain if he'll be entirely into it, Nathan will do his best to let his concerns go. I suppose my 10 cents is that I don't really see Bri proposing this in character, nor do I think Amy is THAT unintentionally depraved.

As noncanon smut? Sure I'd give it a read, and if it's written well enough with attention to the character, then I'm sure I may even appreciate and possibly like it.

I'm not as sold on her antics as you. To me, a lot of time was spent on actions and mannerisms that felt repetitive rather than hammering in deeper aspects.

I have similar views, but worded differently. Rather than wanting to BE that character, it's more that having core flaws lends weight, gives identity to someone who otherwise would have the end result of a "perfect" blob.

Real answer? There is something about seeing how little details translate into the larger picture and vice versa that even plenty of writers do not understand. A single cog in the Clone War machine is rather unimportant on his own and really shouldn't compel a story, but if done just so it can give the audience a view into how the Clone Wars really was like. Or at least how we interpret it.

I just like thinking about things I suppose.

No clue. All I know is that for years I literally could not communicate. You know those horror stories of autistic kids that sit in a wheelchair, drooling their pathetic lives away? That had been me for around 3 years.

We are all are thrown into a meaningless world without our permission, and most of us die without our permission as well. If I somehow make you contemplate meaning for existence out of that mess, then good on me.

>> No.48253838

I disagree. In that they're fully fleshed out characters who each have a thematic history related to temptation and redemption, and reducing them to waifu's the way you did makes me question if you ever actually had a relationship IRL.

Amy - Started with no moral guidance beyond "who ain't dead is the most moral". Redeemed herself and is now happy with who she is, and has a handle on her previous self-esteem and codependency issues.

Nate - Actually your shonen protagonist description is spot on. Dude is like an accidental Paladin, in that after he learned the world wasn't good or fair or like the stories he said "Fuck it, I'm still going to be good and fair like that because I choose to". Still kind of Naive, but by choice now not a lack of experience.

River - Classic accidental villain who kept taking "one step further" until she looked back and could no longer see where she started from. All I need to waifu her though is to know she's a red-headed elf.

Regardless, none of them would ever consider touching your dick because they have real relationships and people in their lives they care for. If they read what you wrote, they would probably be offended that you tried to reduce them to 2-dimensional tropes, and feel sorry for you that you fell in love with an image of them constructed in your head and never really got to truly know them or interact with them.

I'm in complete agreement, actually. Perhaps I messed up along the way, but this whole rant was about how I was attempting to raise them up from the objectification of fetishism and waifufaggotry and to try and examine their qualities as fellow people. Fleshed out characters are great because of how we can respond and resonate with them - examples that you pointed out with your descriptions.

Of course there's the actual "I want this fictional character to be my actual love forever and ever" that this site is full of, and I don't blame you for placing my analysis into that trash as it was playing around with some of its integral facets - i.e, how the characters make the individual respond.

Also Vox's newfaggotry and the faggotry of his followers infuriates me. I mean, I genuinely like his quest and writing, he's clearly talented.

I'm impressed with how you're remaining polite. And kind of pissed off by it, so keep doing it since part of shitposting is having everyone get mad.

Anyways, the contradiction is that once you try to raise them up you have to let go of the fetishism and waifufaggotry. When you do that and then try to pick out which one you would most like to be with, if you're really viewing them as "people" then you have to choose none of them because they're all in relationships or going through a large amount of personal growth/trauma and that's honestly not healthy to get involved with as a relationship goal. That shit is a LOT of work, and tends to poison the well for relationships.

Honestly that quest was a beautiful storm of waifu-faggotry and him writing out the logical and reasonable shitty outcomes of Anon's retarded choices and terrible personality embodied by the PC. It only ever got worse when he caved to waifufags wanting to undo the fuck ups their retardation caused.

Seriously, it became the ultimate car accident into a house fire to gawk at as it burned down once the main character stopped talking in rhymes.

>> No.48254100

Fair points all of them, though a conversation about theoretical sexual attraction will always have to step into the realm of "Well, if I were able to step into the story..." To keep it at that level is fetishism and self-insertfaggotry, pure and simple, but to use it as a lens to examine why a character draws the reader into liking them the way that they do makes it a worthwhile exercise.

You can examine them as people all you want, but to keep it academic and without any sense of personal reactions is the realm of stuffy, unreadable discourses on Literature. Writing is meant to elicit something if done right, so to remove the elicited feelings entirely when talking about a character is.. rather pointless, don't you think? Though equally as pointless is to revel in those feelings and let your dick guide your view of the writing.

This is my favorite way to debate, by the way - recognize every point where we actually agree in the supposed disagreement until all points are subsumed into the same ideas. Generally these ideas will end up being mine originally, abet possibly altered slightly, and thus everyone "wins."

If you want to examine them as theoretical "people" then the academic detachment is necessary.

It's by it's nature a personal experience, one that can't be translated. The character you connect with is going to be because of that individual internal interpretation and thereby completely different from the character another person connects with.
