The West Coast is not known for its stupendous pizza.
Custom characters do wonders for this game's replay value.
Seriously. You think you've seen it all, but then someone does something completely in character
And sometimes you've think you've seen it all and then terrifying flashlights
I got a double-barreled crossbow once...
The devs also keep adding new content and dilemmas, and we haven't even covered all of them in this LP. Pretty sure we came close with that little girls run though. xD
I think this outdoes the terrifying flashlight.
I mean, how does it even
I think I remember someone on the Screwfly Forums who looked into the code said that it seemed like the developers were working on a third mode of playing, so I'm particularly excited for that.
I win! How does that even work.
So, to make a terrifying butter knife, you just need to staple Sebastian Michaelis to the handle? Cool.
((Fucking Éponine, what are you up to? How does this even help YOU? I can't goddamn direct you to a travel location. Are you setting up Little Fall of Rain? DON'T YOU REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU POCKET PEOPLE'S NOTES?! You. Dumb. Grisette.
Well played, game.))
(Don't think anyone else needs to see this... Noel's nice, but if I show this to Euphrasie or that creepy old guy - even if he seems okay on the surface - they're going to abandon me here. Probably what they did to the meat thing. And... anyway... if I... I just...)
Uh, I ain't very good at cleaning up the dead, but maybe one of us oughta do that when we're in a location, sorta. There could be... stuff and such on 'em, right?
I think from now on I better watch instead of patrolling, now the old guy's gotten hurt and all. Would be bad to have more injuries and stuff, it would. Dunno where we should go next. Ain't really sleepy, and that hotel's kinda big and probably has a lot of stuff in it. Bad stuff. Maybe that warehouse far across?
((Don't leave decision-making to me, guuuuyyyyssss. I was streaming a vampire miniseries pretty far into the night if you're me and then a fucking crow wakes me up at 8 and won't shut up for the next 45 minutes until I give up and leave bed.))
Since it seems like DK's the only one who has an opinion on where to go, I go ahead and update.
Sadly, all that awaits you in the warehouse is a next-to-useless rescue clue.
Where to next?
Hmmm... I'm not sure...
Maybe the school? There could be some books there that might help us get out of here...
Why aren't you looking at me, 'ponine? She thinks. Aren't we friends?
((Éponine Thénardier as your guide. What could go wrong indeed? And... wait... is that.... FUCK. FUCKING FUCKING FUCKITY FUCK LIBRARY FUUUUUUUCK.))
The 'ell do we give a toss about 'day'? Day's pretty vague. How's this even a clue? Dumbass dead writer guy. Maybe if you weren't sucha stupidface, you wouldn't have died, now wouldya? (I sure hope whatever I have in my pocket's more useful. Just wish I could parse that handwriting.)
Hrmph. We better get going while the going's good. That school, that 'igh soceity, over there's pretty small, like the bourgeois two-penny-thing says. Figure we should assault or breach it?
Éponine swallows. Some guilty conscience. For being a FUCKING IDIOT AND POCKETING RESCUE CLUES.
.... the sooner we're outta here, the better... M'sieur Marius must be waiting for... you.
Oh, but he'll be waiting for you, too! I'm sure he'll be happy to see you, completely sure...
...as soon as we find him.
She doesn't want to think that he might be... well. Dead.
...but we will find him, won't we? You and me?
Éponine blinks. Seems to consider. Then blinks again.
Are ya daft? 'course he won't! All he ever talked about was 'Cosette, Cosette', all day, all bloody day. Only way he'd ever smile was if I helped him get closer to finding you. And you know what?
Éponine stomps her foot.
I bet he didn't even remember my NAME ten minutes after I was dead because he was back mooning over YOU! How can you sit there and be so... so... FRENCH about all this?! You took EVERYTHING from me! The money dried up after that old bugger took you along, and LOOK what happened! Why'd he even take you?! And you know what? I wouldn't even care that much... if not...
She takes a deep breath.
... one thing... one good thing in my life...
She finally looks at Cosette, furious.
All I wanted was for him to SEE me, to look at me ONCE the way he did when he thought about you, but you took that away, too. You had EVERYTHING! Why'd you have to have HIM, too?! Why...
Éponine turns on her heel, hugging herself again, shaking.
... why couldn't... I have just one thing...
"Calm down, ladies. We've a few things to find first before we can discuss where we're going. If we're going to even attempt to breach that school we'll need to assault it first. I don't fancy being surprised."
... y-you just...
...... fine. Then let's assault the school like the old geezer says.
Cosette watches her go, shaken.
...Oh, 'Ponine. I didn't know.
She whispers, too low for the other girl to hear her as she makes her retreat.
I'll make this up to you, 'Ponine. I swear I will.
In-thread RP: <DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA MARIUS DRAMA>
Now I'm positive that the game's actively trolling us.
Anyway, we assault the school, which hopefully patches things up between the girls a little. Though I'm not sure what Cosette thinks she's hearing...
And then we find the second-most useless clue, right after the one that tells us the chopper is going to come in the day. Wonderful.
((You know a game is good when it out-trolls its GM.))
((Accurate description of Les Mis.))
We're out of food... Maybe the restaurant?
((Restaurant? Diner? The thing with the silverware painted on it.))
Noel can't help herself, before she knows it she hugs Éponine.
( I think that sounds good. Should we attempt the library as well? D-Don't look at me like that DK! )
((ANYWHERE BUT THE FUCKING LIBRARY ;_; - and I didn't bold this on purpose, no, I don't want to breach the police station.
It's the diner that usually doesn't hold food, so maybe a restaurant like I think that is will do nicely..
To be fair, shouting at people is farily friendly for Éponine when it's directed at Cosette. Hostile is siccing her ogre of a mother at her.))
I agree. Ain't waiting for the old bugger to get all 'ungry and eating us. And dontcha look at me that way, Euphrasie. Nothin' left to say to you, I.... ah?!
She gasps, but doesn't resist when she realizes it's Noel and a hug.
So, library and then the restaurant? Would that work for everybody? :D
"Hmm, yes, a bite to eat sounds ideal right about now."
(You know, maybe you should use that shotgun next time you find yourself face to face with a Belmont. Certainly would be faster than those fireballs you always use.)
"Who was that?"
((Assaulting first permitted, but yeah that's fine. I just don't want to have a clusterfuck of zombies fall upon us all. Dracula might not mind (he gets his shit kicked in regularly anyway), but the others probably would object to their new found undead status.))
( I don't think DK wants us to go to the library, so let's go to the restaurant. It's far away though, should we breach directly or assault first,team? )
I..I didn't know that you had it so rough..I'm sorry..if...if you need any help,you can tell me.
I can't promise that I can do anything, but I'll do my best!
((If we assault we'll waste a lot of time with the back-and-forth. Let's just breach.))
((Alright. Hopefully it won't end in tears.))
((I'm okay with taking on the library if you guys want. I have my tea. I will just hide under a table until it's over.))
N-Noel, I'm fine... 's nothing... I just... well, 's something, but... the old guy's right, this ain't the time or the place. When I die, I'll be with M'sieur Marius, but... that doesn't mean the rest of you...
She grunts, seemingly realizing if Cosette dies first, she has dibs on Marius in this logic.
Oi, you, Euphrasie? You better not die. I'll make sure ya don't.
So uh... I know we're breaching the restaurant... but before that are we assault/breaching the library or not?
("Ahem, if I may, Mademoiselle Banana, the Young street urchin seems particularly afraid of the library at present, and therefore in my, and everyones best interest, believe it is okay to skip the library currently. At least until the lovely ladies have had a moment to find something to eat.")
((If we're going, I say assault first. It's large. And fucking evil. I just hope there's food there or the school ghost leaves us some.))
You know, 'ponine, you can call me Cosette. I... haven't been called by that name since-- she stops herself from saying "since I was married" -- for a long time.
...none of us are going to die. I hope. No, I'm sure.
((Restaurant first, please.))
((Lovely Ladies, Smell 'em in the air...))
One last thing happens before we head out to the diner.
First of all, that's creepy, and second of all, holy damn is Cosette a bitch.
And of course they make out up by killing zombies, of course.
Anyway I've been putting Noel and Drakkie on search, Eponine on watch, and Cosette on trapping, but would one of you like to cook for the next turn, just so Cosette has something to eat? We have ingredients but no snacks.
((Okay! *crawls out from under table* TO THE RESTAURANT, SNOWFLAKE! AWAY!
Think I'll drop me anchor in that harbour...))
Fine, Cosette. Let's just go before you starve to death. I ain't having nonna that stupid stuff.
She doesn't budge from Noel, though.
... and I ain't lovely or a lady. I'm a woman, Mr., and dontcha forget it. Just because you're a bit like 'parnasse...
She pauses. Steps back from Noel.
Okay, erm... let's go, then. Kinda hard to cook with your arms caught.
((May want to remove corpses, too, but I'm not sure how the stats work out.))
I'll clean the corpses, Eponine, don't worry.
...the things I do to make people happy...
(What's she being so nice for? She can't be genuine. Why would she be? I sure wasn't nice to her when the fortunes were reversed. Is this some sort of revenge ploy? Making me feel guilty? She's awful.)
Éponine surveys the kitchen.
...... D-demons. Shiny... demons...
She leans in and examines a mixer.
Pretty shinies... ooh, I wonder if I can make a pie! What's that grey flippy thing for? Bah, nothing works. I'll just improvise.
Eponine's "improvisation" seems to work, because as soon as she starts cooking everybody else gets hungry! The smell seems to attract more than just her fellow survivors though...
Yup. Constant waves of zombies as we try to have breakfast in peace.
At the end of it we're all fed, at least. No rescue clues though, sadly.
