Instead of posting some super long diatribe about how other posters are wrong for having opinions and reactions, you could have actually tried to engage with the character and found something out.

Yeah, I noticed. I doesn't help that I'm a slow typer.

Also, since he mentioned us in Lavender's head, we just proved him right. We are the real monsters here by judging him without even giving him a chance to explain himself or even taking the time to get to know him.

Well I tried to. But like I said, I'm a slow typer, so I couldn't type what I wanted to say fast enough before the quest author updated the quest.

Also, I've been saging these because this is like the 3rd thing in a row that I've posted and I've found out the hard way that, unless you're updating a quest, people don't like it when you don't sage multiple things in a row.

Nice job just waltzing into somebody's abode and telling them that your opinion is right and they're WRONG with a capital WRONG, despite having more experience (that is to say, any) than you on that particular topic!

Well, think of the positives.
1) Rat infestation, gone!
2) You don't have to put your door on the ceiling anymore!
3) Maybe you LEARNED something from this.

[TOBLERONE] : ...Are... You alright? You've only started really... existing for maybe 2 days at most, and already you've gotten into a fight with one of the other members of the household, and caused another to leave. The other members are worried about you; Jerry feels like he might have sprung the revelation of monster to human on you far too early, and both 8BIT and Teleste are sick worried about you. I don't understand why you'd snap at Peabody like that. We're monsters, we don't usually get along very well with humans, we tend to convince ourselves they're pretty crummy. Do... You want to talk about it?

I don't know how things work! I don't know ANYTHING! Everybody seems so sad and resigned. They all say that it'd be easier if I just started hating humans.

If you think it'd help. We've brought this up with so many monsters though, I don't think any of it's getting through. Lavender doesn't have any experience of humans, only preconceptions which feel like they were writ by a very human hand. And even if it was too early to tell us, like us, all you can do is move forward.
>>
No. 819355 ID: a307f1

maybe we're getting ourself worked up about this humans thing. we've never seen one, we have no proof they arent terrible. maybe we just have anxiety about encountering one eventually.

although our only evidence they're bad is the word of our fellow monsters. we really cant make a call until we've encountered some. even then, we can only really make a call on the individual ones we've seen. in that case, if they really are awful, we shouldnt feel bad about doing what we gotta do. and if they arent awful, we dont have to do anything to them if we're careful.

maybe we're just really getting way too ahead of ourseles and psyching ourselves out.

just thinking out loud.

[TOBLERONE] : Listen... All humans aren't... terrible. Most of them are very good and nice, which is why a lot of the monsters here are so firm in their beliefs. They don't want to think about the fact that maybe the one they've chosen to feed on was one of the good ones. Some of them try to ignore it. Some of them try to focus on ones they know are bad. ...At least one monster that used to live here starved to death because they refused to eat any. It's a tough... decision to make, and it's one that every monster has to make. I think... I think everyone here has tried to rush you through it, because they remember discovering it for themselves, and having to make the decision while they were truly alone. It's okay to be scared. But you aren't alone. Everyone here has gone through exactly what you're going through. We're in this together.
>>
No. 819363 ID: be0718

We do owe our current evolution to eating humans. Maybe if we remember how tasty they are, it won't be as hard to make a decision.
So... No hard feelings about PB? We'll just get back to work then.

Thank you, Toblerone. It's good to have friends.
I can't apologize enough for Peabody. I'll accept the consequences, whatever they are.
Is it... wrong? To want to change things? To wish I could make it so we didn't have to live like this?
>>
No. 819369 ID: a307f1

I think if we keep worrying about this stuff we're going to alienate everyone around us. I'm not saying its not a thought to have, but lets save it for later maybe. Or at least not upset everyone with it until we have a plan.

Toblerone said before, "We do feed on human fear. But we don't need much! A good monster can relax near someone and feed off the natural nightmares that occur, and people forget before they wake up."

An old ass house is creepy. If a human that wasnt awful came in, we could still feed off their ambient fear without hurting them.

For now, lets focus on building connections with those around us instead of wearing them down. Folks are worried about us. Lets put our energy into something constructive that will bring everyone together.

We still have a feast to put together, and a few things we could do for people. And we haven't been to the secret area yet! We have to meet those folks.

Should we go to 8bit right away or visit some others first? We still have to figure out what type of a dress Victoria would like. And find Oddrie a fruit of eden. Although maybe we could make that into a dish for him at the feast.

You're right. Everything had this sense of urgency about it and we rushed.
It blew up in our face.
Seems silly now. This house has been standing for so long and so much bad stuff has happened already that rushing seems kind of pointless now.
Let's focus on other things. For now, anyway.
We can still have a get-together for the house. That's something positive. We still need to get into the secret are and meet the others. That's something positive. Our friends care about us enough to be worried for our well-being. That's something positive.
We should probably go see 8BIT, Teleste, and Matilda. You know why.
And we'll have to see Victoria about her dress.

It is a consequence of being under the influence of this collective of spirits. There are those whose emotions and passions inflame very easily, and it can lead to an existence of impulse and self-loathing for those who cannot find a peace within themselves.

Toblerone, will Lavender ever develop her own sense of self? Or is she merely a shell worn by the many?

[TOBLERONE] : Lavender DOES have a sense of self. But they don't have control over their mouth. Lavender can't speak unless you do. Didn't you notice her clapping her hands over her mouth after asking the... well the amusing 'which fnaf character would you fuck' question earlier? She becomes flustered easily as well. She's easily swayed by what you say because shes new! She doesn't know much else. She's just assumed this is how things are...

[TOBLERONE] : A feast would... honestly be very nice of you. I would be genuinely surprised if you could make one! Not that, it, ah. Matters, I suppose. If... If you're still having trouble with the Sigil, all you need to do is put it on the corner of the painting. It's the most simple one I think I've seen out of everyone here. I suppose it's because you're so active that the ease of use would make it easier for you to get around. ...Still, uh! You should probably still let anyone you asked to help know that I told you. We... do miss Peabody, but he was always a bit of a loner anyway. We knew this would happen one day. I'm upset, certainly, but I'm not mad at you. Just. Make sure to make amends with people, alright? Some of the house members will be forced to hear it through the grapevine, and might get the wrong impression.

Aw, crud. We did it again! We always over think the simplest answers and make things way harder than they're supposed to be!

Honestly I guess we were...just kinda thinking about...a solution to the human/monsters coexisting problem. I know, wishful thinking. And I guess I can see now why it was such a...foolish endeavor. Peabody was making a human disguise potion before we "annoyed" him and I guess our prying is what made him so pissed off. Dug too deep into his own beliefs. I just...I don't want humans to be..."infect-able" anymore. But I guess it's something we just...have to live with.

Well, we can finally make a room for Lavender and she can stay there for a little while or we can go to the secret area, away from the main house or we can do both and make Lavender's room in the secret area and stay there for a while.

Unless someone else has something else in mind?

But I think we should go to Victoria to deliver the dye, then visit Teleste to apologize for upsetting her earlier, then visit 8bit and tell him we figured out the Sigil and he doesn't need to keep looking on the internet for answers anymore, but thank him for trying anyways with giving him a "thank you hug" as an optional thing to do, then visit Matilda and apologize for messing up the plan to get everyone together, then go into the secret area to find Naut and apologize to him for hurting his feelings earlier.

> Feeling altogether refreshed but still very uncertain, the influx of different suggestions on what to do next causes Lavender to only become more antsy.

Not really. She only asked for the dye, so she might have a dress that needs some color/recoloring.

Also, you'd need to go to her to make the dress because you need to know what she wants to be made.

But we can worry about that later.

Let's go talk to Matilda and apologize for messing up the plan to get everyone together.

Well, we can't make a dress without Victoria telling us what she wants the dress looks like (long, short, frilly, ballroom, etc.). So we'll need to take the dye to her and ask what she wants the dress to look like.

However, you made no such error. You could not predict the interaction with Peabody, and even aware of it as you were during its happening, there was not time to intervene.

I do want to ask if there is anyone in particular we should prioritize for apology; Peabody's friends, essentially.

> Matilda has been holding Lavender for what feels like ages, silently. She gazes solemnly at the spider for what feels like forever, just silently contemplating what to do next.

[MATILDA] : How foolish I've been being. I had thought to myself that I could guide you along, as you were only new to this world, unaware of it's mechanisms. I see now that you are your own person, and are capable of making your own decisions, fixing your own mistakes, celebrating your own triumphs. ...Thank you for the apology, though I do not think I, or indeed anyone here, is the one that needs it. Forgiving yourself is a good first step. ...You are very kind, and very brave. And I hold you very dear to my heart.

> Lavender and Matilda share a MOMENT. Matilda's DATEABILITY has increased by 1.

She big.

Give her a kiss before we go. She deserves lots of love for being so cool.

WOAH!!! Well, that answers my question of "how big did Matilda get from evolving?"!

Also, since it's been a while, here's a reminder for everyone: Lavender will repeat everything we say out loud! So if you don't want Lavender to say something, make sure you put it in spoilers!

>Matilda's crying blood.
Wipe away her tears and give her a hug with all 8 of your legs!

Thank her for the hug and the kind words, you feel much better now!

It's never foolish to want to help, even if people are going to make their own choices, mistakes, and successes.

Let's go to 8bit and tell him that you figured out what to do with the Sigil and he doesn't have to look for the answer on the internet anymore. Then give him a hug and thank him for trying anyways!

> 8BIT seems surprised about your return, and before he can speak, you tell him you've figured out the sigil. He looks a little embarressed and rubs the back of his head.

[8BIT] : Yea, hah... I couldn't find anything on it. Guess you're better at this than me... Which figures! I'm not good for much.

> Lavender describes the recent turn of events, and 8BIT looks a little bit grave.

[8BIT] : Pretty sure everyone knows already, Lavender. Peabody leaving was a big upset, one we'd been expecting for a while. He never really got along too well with Toblerone, due to Toblerone's more lenient ruleset for humans. Most places have them as 'kill on sight'. It was... sorta expected.

Make distressed spider noises and say, "Nooo, don't say that about yourself!" Then hug him and tell him, "I'm not letting go until I've hugged away all those bad thoughts about yourself! None of them are true!"

>>822451
And then tell 8bit that the only reason you found out what to do with the Sigil is because Toblerone saw how much you were struggling, took pity on you, and flat out told you the answer. It turns out, all you had to do was put it on one of the corners of the painting.

And now you feel kinda dumb for over thinking such a simple puzzle.

Here's hoping 8bit will say, "You're not dumb." or something to that effect.

Come now, surely your talent for shitposting on chinese message boards is unrivaled?

Besides, we didn't actually figure it out, we used a cheatsy hint from Toby.

> The sudden hug causes 8BIT to fluster and stumble over their words to the point it's a little hard to understand for a moment, before the mentioning of her feeling dumb causes him to stop, and very lightly pat her on the back.

[8BIT] : Hey, it's okay to ask for help. That's not dumb at all. It might be a bit hypocritical of me, but... I don't think you should downplay yourself like this. It's not healthy. I know you're a little stressed but, chin up, alright? It gets better. It always does.

Give him a big squeeze and thank him, that made you feel better.

Then let go of him and tell him that you're going to check out the secret area now, but you'll be back later. Bye!

.....and give him a 'Rancho Butt Wiggle' as you walk away. :3

>dresses Victoria likes?
Wouldn't it be better to ask Victoria herself instead of someone else?

Lets go explain ourselves and apologize to everyone we already know first. It might give a weird impression if we rush into the painting before apologizing to everyone else.

I think we've done enough groveling. Let's go into the painting and say hi to Naut, find out what he needed help with. Also say hi to the others and maybe try not to get super worked up about any human-hatred or self-delusions that they might have.
