"We're heeeerrreeee~!"

no come back heart i need you to live

Your giant ears hear dad mutter: "oh gods there's so many why are there so many"

mom mutters back: "calm down, dear, i'm sure she hasn't had sex with all of them."

dad: "haha...yeah, y-you're probably right."

She's not entirely wrong... yet...

"Goodness! You have so many friends, Ceri! Good thing I made extra!" mom says. "There should be food enough for everyone! But first thing's first. I'm Myra, Ceri's mom. And this is Sheriim, her dad. We're pleased to meet you!"

Dad tries to say something, but his voice squeaks.

Mom pats him gently on the back. "Ceri, why don't you introduce us one at a time? That'll make it easier on Da-- uh, I mean to say we should have proper introductions before digging in."

You do your best to hide your panic level. "Oh! Good thinking!"

"Yes," Dad says.

"Very." you agree.

"Quite," Dad agrees to your agreeing.

"Indeed," you agree to his agreement that you both are, in fact, agreeing.

Mom narrows her eyes at you two. "Stop stalling."

"Sorry"sorry" you say at the same time.

It'll be okay, Ceri. Just introduce everyone, have a nice picnic, and get back to the 20 plot threads hanging in the air. These are your parents, and they've shown time and time again that they're behind you 100%. Neither of them are out to sabotage you, or otherwise make things more uncomfortable. Try to look forward to the tasty meal mom made for everyone.

well to save time I suggest you introduce Gulketi and the rest of the ship's crew at once. Say you ran into Gulketi and siphon and through them we introduced to the rest of the gang. Right now you're helping them out as they're looking for an old friend of theirs who lives in the area and they asked you for help since you're a local. Been hanging out with them for awhile so what started out as just a random act of kindness (and a plot hook) kinda turned into a few friendships.

The rest you can introduce as you met them.

Ceri, the best way to prevent yourself from saying things you don't want to say (aka "spilling your spaghetti"), is to stuff your mouth full of spaghetti (the food)! You're too compassionate to try speaking with your mouth full! It's the perfect plan!

So just remember that if you're about to say something you don't want to say, shove some food in your mouth and you won't say anything!

Beans, beans, beans, tiddly, beans, beans, beans
A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to eat was nothing but cups of pea,
along came a girl by the name of Vaylute Shox, and she invented a wonderful dish and she made it out of stalks!
(Hey)
She must have been a wizard or a duchess or a queen,
and to her praises, we shall always sing,
look what she done for us, she's filled us up with glee,
[] bless Vaylute Shox, the girl who invented beans, beans, beans, tiddly, beans, beans, beans.
The Dancin' 'Bold, the Huggin' Neu, the Dragoon's Hole as well,
one thing you can be sure of, it's Shoxxie's beans they sell,
So all ye lords and ladies, at a hundred-o-clock ye stop,
for ten short seconds, remember Vaylute Shox.
One, two, three, ten...
(Hey)
She must have been a wizard or a duchess or a queen,
and to her praises, we shall always sing,
look what she done for us, she's filled us up with glee,
[] bless Vaylute Shox, the girl who invented beans, beans, beans, tiddly, beans, beans, beans.
A barrel of oil, a sack of seeds, you boil it in a wok,
The kind of combination, to drive the room amok,
Thirteen ounce a day will keep away the yips,
It's only thirty-two credits, and two thousand in tips.
One, two, three, ten...
(Hey)
She must have been a wizard or a duchess or a queen,

A path of beans spilt, on this day I walk.
No lies told, despite the parent's shock.

Lore deep and detailed, explored most thoroughly.
And bond strengthened, with Siphon most assuredly.

Now shall you commence, with dread in your heart.
This meal of doom, you cannot escape your part.

No. 925538 ID: 2202fb

B.

So there are several things to unpack, but thats fine since i took notes.

First: Dad seemed to find the fluff oddly sexual, and that continued as he shamelessly suggested Ciri improve, which is definitely something for Ciri to mull over.

Next: Tf are the bushes? They slipped that they are kobolds, but what tf are they doing here (and inside bushes)? Speaking of party crashers, why is the dragon guy and the tea girl here? Tea girl seemed like a decent addition to the hoard. It also just occurred to me that we dont definitively know armor dude's gender since they are covered in armor.

Thirdly: You guys have computers but you dont have planes? If you can get Dad on a leash (Consult his handler. Mom may even be able to surrender his guns to Eez to keep in the ship's armory) for everyone's safety, maybe he, with the help of the Eez, could make an aeroplane. You also need to learn about nukes (for safety and appreciating the gravity of what they mean) since you apparently have some at the bottom of your lake.

Lastly: Mom should probably get in on the whole thing. Even if you arent into actually doing stuff with her, she seems to want in, plus it would be nice to have someone you can talk freely with. Just make a point to not be around when she is busy.

Before the picnic ends, lets see if we can give the parents a tour of the ship. I mean, they know about it, and them thinking it is fake is probably a bad idea in the long-run.

Went back and looked at this. This is very very important and it kinda shows that Syphon isnt actually (fully) omniscient, just altered somewhat. And even more importantly, that Ceri is also starting to be altered either by exposure or by something behind the curtain.

Now good god, we need a wiki to keep all of this shit straight and idek who would have enough knowledge to actually create one. I know I dont.

hey, just to clear the air, is this choice a hidden switch for the tone of this quest going forward? It seems like it could be; with the choices of A, normal (how it has been), B, darker, or B+ grimdark. This choice will most likely drastically change how Ceri views the characters and things in general. I mean, she is kind of naive, and that lore dump was pretty dark, and the last bit even darker.

If this is the case, while it wont change my choice of all ahead full, it may change other people's choices.

Because she only spilled the beans about her backstory. She never spilled any beans about what you didn’t want your parents to know about, Ceri. She’s being such a good friend!

Also, I’m pretty sure that’s Penny that kept showing up in all those bushes.

.....what do you mean “who is Penny?” You know who she is! She’s the tiny psychic Kabold you met at the gym and told you about “tail day” ( >>/questarch/895787 )!

It wasn't even innuendo. Outissa literally said she'd eat both Ceri and her mom out and only the latter had any idea. Too many points in spaghetti, not enough points in perception. But hey, that translator will eventually be finished, so I suppose there's hope. Someday.

Only you didn't allow it, you were just too slow in getting your hand over Siphon's mouth!

So, Ceri, this means that you need to improve your reflexes. And the best way to do that is to play more video games!

But you can get to that later, right now it's time to eat some spaghetti! And possibly some ice cream if your parents brought any with them to share with everyone!

Vote B

Because "The more you know" memes, "knowledge is powah", and all that.

Also, as Harry Dresden could attest, withholding mission-critical information often has unforseen consequences. Usually bad ones. And the second problem is that the holder of knowledge, unless especially sagacious, doesn't know which piece of info can gain "mission-critical" status at what point.
(Did I just combine two pop-cultural references?...)

So yeah. Let's broaden the horizons a bit.

Though option A also revealed some pretty neat character- and world-building, so I'm actually torn about this choice. Then again, Ceri has a lifetime of opportunities to learn about her parents' secrets at some later point, so I think it's no great loss in the grander scheme of things.

The dialogue beyond the password-protected section was pretty... quantum-solipsistic, if I may say so. Got me thinking.

As your parents get things set up, you find yourself looking to Siphon. You don't say anything, but maybe you don't have to.

"Go on," she says, smiling her usual smile. "Your life doesn't need to be more complicated right now, does it? We can talk about Sky some other time."

"Yeah..."

The hint of sadness in her eyes fades as her face takes on her usual mischievous look. "Right now, we have to 'eat outwardly with your mom'~"

"Yeah I-- you were listening in on that!?"

":"

"no no stop you're right dumb question dumb question let's just okay yeah"

"3"

What happened still sticks in the back of your mind, but Siphon's right. Not here. Not now.

Maybe you'll mention it to Euia when he returns. If time magic was somehow involved, he'd be the one to know about it.

Your thoughts are interrupted by your mother's cheerful voice. "Come on, everyone! Picnic time~!"

All things considered, that went fairly well. You now know a lot more about Siphon and the other Aliens. Better yet, you learned it without causing a major catastrophe. Your parents seem to think of it as nothing more than roleplay.

As you watch your hoard gather, you try to distract yourself with other thoughts.

>Dad seemed to find the fluff oddly sexual
You were hoping for better thoughts. Look, Dad just really likes petting things. It might be hard to believe, but people blush for reasons other than Tilde!

>[what] are the bushes?
You're like, 98% sure the bush kabold was Penny. Hiding or not, that constant stream of PSYCHIC MAGIC is a dead giveaway.

>Mom should probably get in on the whole thing.
No.

>You guys have computers but you dont have planes?
?

>Before the picnic ends, lets see if we can give the parents a tour of the ship.
That would very much get in the way of them assuming everyone was just roleplaying.

You relax a little with that thought. Maybe you don't have to worry too much about what is and isn't said now.

...Unless they start talking about the lewd stuff. For Dad's sake, you can't let that happen!

You're starting to feel silly adjusting it all the time. Maybe you should let GB and CD get the attention they're clearly demanding? Or maybe Kharadra has tips on...

...Hmm? The Dragon Fan and the totally-not-topless Itkiaki are glancing over here. You see no sign of the kabold, but... should you invite them too? You don't know them super well yet, but this could give you a chance to befriend them and eventually extract more info about the DRAGON FAN CLUB and THE NATURALS.

Invite them to join you?
X: No.
