You fell asleep in your costume again. It might have mattered, long ago. Long ago you might have been relieved to transform out of it after a hard day's work. You might have been relieved to get back to your normal life, as a normal girl, with normal problems.After a while you just stopped caring. The costume stays on. You don't even sleep much anymore, only in the times when your body finally decides to shut down. Or at least until you realize that you've gone for so long without rest that you were only shooting up hallucinations. Days aren't that much important, anymore. You keep asking for the assigments, even the horrible ones. The ones that even that pocky-fellating bitch wouldn't take.You look like shit, you feel like shit, and for the second time this week, you've forgotten what your name was. It's at the tip of your tongue, if your mouth didn't taste like blood and stale alcohol at the moment.What do you call yourself? Hopefully not something stupid again. Mami never really got over how you started calling yourself that name again.(First quest, a bit of an experiment. I'll delete this right away if there's no interest.)
Chiaki Matsuda?I'm interested but I don't know if anyone else is...

Shoutan Himei. You're very tired.
Is this quest Madoka gone even worse when the magical 'girls' are all twenty-something failueres in a acrapsack world?If yes, count me in. I'm going drinking now, but I'll refresh this when I get back.> nameNoir setting doesn't do well with .jp aesthetics. It has to be either .fr or .us. Why not a combination of both?Your first name should be 'Alicee'.
>mfw I just finished this semesters exams>mfw this is exactly how felt right after (minus the booze)You know what we need to cheer us up? Love interes, someone we can be madly in love with, emphasis on madly...Oh and we are called Ayumi. Or at least think that's what we want to be called right now...
If we didn't get our powers from a fast talking salesman called Rickety Richard, I'm out.

>>19489905Chiaki Matsuda...? That kinda sounds stylish. A bit too cute for you, but hell, you've called yourself worse before. Other people have called you worse before.The other names that floated up sounded a bit too silly. Maybe next time, if you wake up forgetting everything again.You try to smile at yourself. Not much of an improvement, but it'll do.What next?Check your inventory.Check the heavy circular shield thing clamped onto your right arm.

>>19489976Your shield...thing. You don't really know what to call it, but you know it's heavy, and you could probably do some damage with it if you smash someone over the head with it. It's constantly clicking inside, like a bomb, but you're not too worried about it exploding.Upon closer inspection, it looks like it's seen better days. There's a large gash in the middle, like someone had taken an industrial saw to it and tried to cut it in half. The jewel in the center is cracked, and it's showing some of the clicking gears inside. What are you, Captain America or something?Check inventory.Try to see if it comes off.Stars and Stripes.

What? Stars and Stripes? You're not Captain America. You're not even American. Stop mucking around. You'd probably hurt yourself trying to.You jiggle with it a bit. It turns slightly, but the gears clicking relentlessly within start to protest loudly, so you leave it alone.

You think about how much more awesome Iron Man is than Captain America. The alcoholism isn't too hot, but hey, you're already down that road anyway.You check your inventory. You have two small canisters of regular painkillers, enough for four doses. An opened pack of cigarettes, two of which has already been smoked. A metal zippo lighter, which you manage to light after nearly dropping it. Curiously, two crumpled-up 100 dollar bills. Your trusty combat knife, still strapped to your ankle.Oh, and your clamshell cellphone. It seems to be fully charged and in an annoying pink color. From the screen, you could see that you have two messages.Take a dose.Smoke.Read your messages.

You light up one first before reading. It doesn't help the horrible taste in your mouth much, but it calms you down, at least. If there were any laser traps to avoid, this'd be handy, too.You open up your message inbox. The first message comes from a sender registered to your contacts as QB. The other is from an unregistered number.Strangely enough, your phone is devoid of anything except these two new messages and what appears to be five contacts. There is a diary function, but it's kept locked away by a five-letter password. You leave it alone for now.Read the message from QB.Read the message from the unregistered number.Try and call one of your contacts, as follows: [Kaname Madoka] [Sakura Kyoko] [Tomoe Mami] [QB] [???]

You read the messages. The message from QB reads:"Make your way to Mami's apartment as soon as you wake up."Short, terse, commanding. Annoying little parasite, you remember not liking it, and even in your slightly confused state, you don't think that's going to change anytime soon.The message from the unregistered number is stranger:"Let it go. Seriously. It's time to move on."You have no idea what they're talking about, or who's it from. Maybe it's just spam, or a message wrongly sent to your number. Nothing significant, you decide. Go to Mami's Apartment posthaste. Call someone from your contacts list. Stab out an angry reply containing various and less-than-eloquent profanities.

Wait, what's so bad about QB?Is he some character or something like that?
>>19490728it is a cute little ferret/cat abomination that turns girls into magical girls..... that eventually lose their souls and turn into the monster of the week that the MGs keep on having to kill
>>19490752Wow. This QB is a goddamned monster.
>>19490752And has ears coming out of his ears
>>19490664Call Mami. See if everything is alright
>>19490762It's all for forestalling the heat-death of the universe by collecting the energy released from a Magical Girl transforming into a Witch.
Speaking as a confused watcher of the series, how the hell did Kyubey reach the 'quota' for Earth?I mean, unless magic happens to be reusable energy, it'll run out.
>>19490762he is a fluffy, fuzzy, and Faustian
>>19490762he's stalling the universe death, or something like that.he's a hero. who corrupts and eats little girls.
>>19490752> eventually lose their soulsThey automatically "lose" their souls, nigga puts em into a Phylactery right away. They get corrupted bit by bit later yeah
>>19490812wait, MGs are Liches?
>>19490793it's all about scope.granting wishes, and using magic to fight witches, use relatively little power.eating a grief seed gives a lot more.and orders of magnitude more is needed for whatever the cute little devil is doing.
>>19490820The Madoka-verse ones are essentially.Their "souls" are sealed in gems, and their bodies are essentially dead to pain and most injuries. That and if you get the soul gem away the body stops functioning.So yeah, by most definitions they are indeed Undead
>>19490752>it is a cute little ferret/cat abomination that turns girls into magical girls..... that eventually lose their souls and turn into the monster of the week that the MGs keep on having to killSounds like Claymore with some extra "cute" on top.
>>19490820In Madoka, yeah. One episode shows that if their Soul Gem goes too far from their body, the body just drops dead, no pulse or breath.It's meant to make the body more able to take damage so it can participate in the fights it does with witches, since it seems if your soul is no longer attached, you can take hits that'd break bones easily.
Biting into the filter of your nearly-spent cigarette, you stab out a couple of choice expletives from your admittedly limited repertoire as a reply to QB. Quickly accessing the 'draw' function of your phone, you scrawl out something offensive and send it as an attachment.It's immature and puerile, but you're not in the best of moods. It felt good sending it, in any case.After a while, you call one of the registered numbers in your contact list. The other end of the line rings a few times, before it is picked up."Hello...? Who is this?" A warm, familiar voice comes on, slightly hesitant. "I don't have your number on my contact list, I'm sorry...may I know who's on the line?"She seems to be alright, much to your relief.Answer as Chiaki.Keep quiet. Breathe loudly.Tell her to get the hell out of her apartment and stay away from QB.
>>19490860>[X]Answer as Chiaki.Also, I just want to say I am enjoying this quest. Especially the art. And the feel of the character.
Fucking magic murder cat
>>19490860>[x]Answer as Chiaki.Sup, Mami, how are you doing?
>>19490860>[x]Answer as Chiaki.As much as everybody hates QB, he is generally useful at not getting us killed. Not without reasons, at least.
We should do>Tell her to get the hell out of her apartment and stay away from QB.But we're gonna doAnswer as Chiaki.>>19490896Considering half the times his reasons are 'Hey I need your energy now so please die.' That's not very comforting.
>>19490912As long as we are useful to him, he will not hinder us. That doesn't mean we should trust him, or even listen to everything he says.
Remember episode 3 people?
>>19490983Yeah, and then I remember future episodes where it shows that that won't always happen to her.
>/tg/ made me watch Kore Zom and it was awesome>/tg/ made me watch Nyaruko and it was hilarious>/tg/ made me watch Mirai Nikki and it was just... hell, I don't even have words to describe it>I do visit /a/, quite often actually, and most of the times it's just moe and "mai waifu is better than you're waifu" everywhere>this threadOh well, downloading Madoka ...
>>19491035You won't be disappointed
>>19491041This, Madoka is amazing.Also OP still here?
It's great to hear her voice, even if it sounds like she's hesitant to receive your call.You manage to murmur your new name after a few unsuccessfull tries - your throat is dry, and painfully so - and there's silence at the other end for a few moments before Mami's voice comes on again, all warmth and honey now."Chiaki...? That's a...surprisingly pretty name, and I think it's much better than your last one. Murderface doesn't really suit you," she giggles slightly, before concern seeps into her voice. "Are you sure you're alright, er, Chiaki-san...? You sound a bit hoarse..."She pauses as a muffled voice speaks in the background. "Oh, um. Kyuubey says to come on over, so we can give you your assignment for today. He sounds a bit grumpy today, for some reason...although, you can never really tell with him, can you?"Another pause. "Chiaki-san, have you had breakfast yet? I'll set an extra place if you haven't."What do you reply?
>>19491072Accept the offer of breakfast, seriously when was the last time we ate something?
>>19491072[x] "... sure."
>>19491072"I don't think I have… can't really remember. That'd be great."
>>19491072"An extra-place ? With whom are you ?"There is maybe some people with whom we don't want to eat.
What's with all the hating on QB? Am I the only one who spent the entire series cheering for his attempts to take all the little girls souls? It was freakin' hilarious watching them blindly stumble into his little verbal traps.And now that I type it out, I realise exactly how odd that is...
>>19491126Because it implies you're a horrible person
>>19491072"....Will there be booze? My mouth feels wooly. Like there is some cotton stuck inside. "
>>19491126I'd rather be Homura and spend all my time trying to murder the thing.
>>19491072Demand booze. Beer is liquid bread, right?
>>19491095>>19491092"...That's no answer, Chiaki-san. You should eat better." Mami's voice becomes chiding as always. "You shouldn't be drinking so much, and the pills you've been taking...I know you're getting all the tough assignments, but please take care of yourself."You mumble something resembling an assent. If it was someone else, you'd tell them to take a long walk off a pier wearing cement shoes, but it's Mami. Can't do that to her."I'll make sure there's enough left for you when you get here, then. And no, I'm alone here with Kyuubey. Why did you ask, Chiaki-san?"You mumble something else, and try to end the call there. Mami lets out a sigh, before she bids you goodbye."I'll wait for you then, Chiaki-san. See you."The call ends, and you stash your cellphone back into your inventory. That went better than you expected it to.What do you do? Go to Mami's apartment.  Arm yourself first before leaving. Call someone else on your contact list.
>>19491216>[x] Arm yourself first before leaving.Who knows, we might need to head off for that assignment right away.
>>19491216Arm self before leaving
>>19491216>[x] Arm yourself first before leaving.can never be too careful
>>19491072Demand her to feed Chiaki booze. Through her mouth.
>>19491216[x] Arm yourself first before leaving.[x] Go to Mami's apartment.I don't see much point in calling anyone else.
>>19491216> Arm yourself first before leaving.I'm pretty sure we'll all agree.
>>19491216Call QB and swear at him. I dunno, man.

[X] Arm yourself first before leaving.It's dangerous to go alone. We should take this.

>>19491355Haha. Ha. Ha. Hahaha. Ha. Ha ha. Ha.Sorry, I don't want to be rude, but that's just funny.
>>19491216[x] DRINK SOME GODDAMNED WATER, LIKE ONE LITER OF IT
>>19491379such a shame he can regenerate
>>19491390Why do you dislike someone staving off the death of the universe
You decide to get yourself ready, just in case. It doesn't hurt to prepare, and you know you're absolute shit with your knife at any capacity.As if responding to your thoughts, the heavy shield clamped to your arm clicks a few times, before turning a couple of dozen degrees, locking into place with a clack of metal, before reverting back to its old position.Automatically, you reach behind it, and feel the handle of an oversized gun fall heavily into your grip. It's a heavy son of a bitch, and you draw it out.It's not a gun, it's a handcannon. It's seen better days, sure, but it looks functional. The shield doesn't give you a reload, but at least the chambers are full. Eight shots worth.You remember then that the Shield has always given you strange things to work with. Sometimes it gives you hardware that's easily familiar, other times it's given you strangely-shaped ones that nearly break your wrist after every discharge and have prayer papers affixed to every available surface.In any case, you have a gun, now. You stash it into your inventory, and make your way to Mami's apartment. At least you remember the way, even if you can't remember what the hell your real name is.Even before you approach the front door, you realize that something is wrong. The sound of screaming inside is muffled, but clear, interrupted by the dulled thump of what sounds like concussive blasts of force. You can also hear breaking furniture and glass inside.What do you do?
>>19491390He doesn't regenerate, he just has more than one body.
>>19491416Big boot! Bust that door down!
>>19491416SAVE MAMI DAMMIT
>>19491393Because he chose efficiency over human life, because he felt it unnecessary to explain the full details of what being a magical girl meant when tricking twelve to fourteen year-olds into becoming said magical girls. Because the death of my entire species is acceptable to him so long as it means his can live longer.
>>19491416Kick down the door, aiming around with handcannon while practicing trigger discipline
>>19491416Save mami, burn the incubator!
>>19491427I guess I have a thing for pragmatism. Not like I didn't know that already.
>>19491423>>19491422What they said
>>19491427He never lied to them, he just didn't tell. He would have told them everything if they asked, the problem is, that they didn't. And before you tell that they are young and stupid... well, don't parents teach their kids not to accept candies from strangers? This is basically the same thing.>>19491416I thought the shield gives what Homura stores in it and not just random shit. All those weapons she had in anime, she painstakingly collected over the course of many years.
>>19491467Who says this Homura doesn't have a ton of random shit stored in the shield?
>>19491467we probably forgot
I would have made the deal.Just get a very well-thought-out wish.
>>19491467maybe you can just let it be instead of whining about how it's different from the anime
>>19491416Should we get to shoot QB, can we pull the classic line from Dirty Harry?I know what you’re thinking: "Did he fire six shots, or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well do ya, punk?(On an unrelated tangent, assuming that it is a Taurus Raging Bull 44 Magnum variant, how the hell does it contain 8 shots? Revolvers typically contain 6.)
>>19491498it's custom made.dwarven work.
>>19491467He definitely lies to them when it suits his purposes. He lied to Kyouko saying there was a chance she could save Sayaka when he knew there was no way in hell that would happen, all so that Kyouko would get herself killed so Homura would have nobody to turn to for help against Walpurgis Night except Madoka.
>>19491498>gun conjured from magic shield thingyI don't think we have to explain it
>>19491478This. We don't even remember our real name, how the hell are we supposed to remember every random thing we've stuffed into that shield over the years?
>>19491467A lie of omission is still a lie, and I never claimed he lied anyway. and since this isn't /a/ and is just cluttering up what has the potential to be a good quest I'll cut the debate short there.
>>19491498You noticed OP indirectly stated we once pulled a wh40k bolter out of that hyperspace arsenal? I doubt the weapons we get will constrict themselves to logic.
>>19491430This, this, a thousand times this.
Things sure went from nice to fucked in a hurry.Wasting no time, you draw your pistol from your inventory, before rearing up with one heeled foot and smashing it into the locked front door. The wood immediately gives way, splintering under the force, and you immediately grasp your firearm with both hands, one steadying the other, accommodating its weight.With trigger discipline, of course.As you enter, the apartment is dimly lit. Strange, because you remember that Mami never closes her blinds - she likes the sunlight to come in from the windows, and she isn't too well with the dark. The sharp stench of blood is all over, and as you step forward cautiously, you become increasingly aware that you're stepping in Incubator flesh.You call out Mami's name, feeling increasingly horrified at every passing moment. The entire apartment is now deathly silent, and totally dark. There is no response.What do you do?
>>19491574Follows the blood trail
>>19491574duct tape flashlight to gun. I do NOT want to reenact doom 3 hereflares might be a good idea
>>19491574Look for Mami, what else is there to do? Well besides looking for any signs of combat to determine what happened.
>>19491587this is getting a bit to tacticool.also, wouldn't that kind of shit interfere with proper aiming, and slow it down?>spoken like someone who's never had a gun in his hand
>>19491574Dammit, *we* wanted to shred the kyuubey.I guess try to find Mami, and maybe take a tiny, tiny stop to eat something if we see that promised breakfast.
>>19491508That's not *entirely* true. He tells Kyouko that since it's magic, anything's possible (remember that magic is beyond Kyubey's abilities - Homura legitimately freaks him out on one loop when she timeshifts and he just has no words for Madoka). What he DOESN'T tell her is that he doesn't think it's possible, but he doesn't actually tell her anything that isn't true - he simply tells her that since it's magic, anything is possible, and lets her assume that means it's doable instead of being ridiculously unlikely to happen.>>19491574Take a moment to calm down and quiet your breathing. Can't hear things sneaking up if you're panting.
>>19491574go cautiouslyoh man though, I don't usually follow quest threads but this is awesome.
I LOVE YOU
>>19491613Food can wait till we know if Mami's okay. Waiting a little longer won't likely matter too much.

Waiting for OP.
You remind yourself that yelling out Mami's name over and over again isn't going to help, and you bite down on the impulse to do so. Venturing further into the apartment - both hands gripping the oversized gun tightly - you will yourself to move as silently as possible. At the very least, you'll hear the hypothetical knife before it's slid into your back.Your eyes beginning to adjust to the darkness, you can somewhat make out shapes now, and avoid walking into walls or stubbing your toes into furniture. Keeping your pistol aimed forward, you spy a huddled shape near the doorway leading to the kitchen, while you hear more scuffling and more screaming above you. Upstairs, where Mami's room is.What do you do?
>>19491743Check the huddled shape. With any luck it's a friendly that can shed some light on the situation.
>>19491743Head upstairs, if Mami is up there we're sure as fuck not waiting down here.
>>19491743Go to Mami's roomi hope we don't find her headless
>>19491743Take your lighter out with your free hand and toss it into the kitchen, aiming for tile or glass - you want a noise distraction, then proceed upstairs.
>>19491743Head upstairs quickly, but quietly, and keep an eye on that shape by the door. Don't want to waste time on it when we might be able to save Mami, but there's a chance it might be a threat so we need to be prepared for that.
Get a bigger gun, you need to rip and tear with a bigger gun, like a sawed off shotgun or a submachine gun.
>>19491796Why stop there? I'm sure we have even bigger guns stashed away.
>>19491833I think we'd like to leave Mami's place in one piece if at all possible.
>>19491833We need firepower for compact room clearing environments. We need a shotty or a subby
>>19491852>that imageI'll be back in a few minutes
>>19491743get upstairs, mothefucker!
>>19491743Check shape and pop a Painkiller. Let's hope its one of those that give us a funny detached feeling. We need to be calm about this.
>>19491882GET TO DA MAMI
>>19491950Drop to a crouch and GUT PUNCH
>hurr ignore the obvious shape and let it behind youYou guys are fucking idiots.
>>19491950Block/avoid don't kill the attacker till you know what/who it is. Could be a scared friend who can't tell who you are in the dark.
>>19491950Press X not to die
>>19491950Spin, bash them with the shield then disarm them - then dash into the room and close it behind you
>>19491963Seems a bit harshly worded, but man, seriously.
There's no time to waste on the huddled shape by the kitchen, and you're not going to damage more of Mami's apartment if you can help it. You move as quickly and as quietly you can upstairs, nearly slipping on a few steps but managing to keep your footing. You realize that whatever's got Mami in her room has left a blood trail - or worse, it's actually hers to begin with.As you approach the door to Mami's room, only at the last second do you sense someone just about to stab you in the back, the gleam of a knife catching your glasses in the dim light.What do you do?
>>19491983wait, what just....

>>19491999a half-dead QB is stabbing us in the back?and we didn't want to know about it first?
>>19491999>you spy a huddled shape near the doorway leading to the kitchenJesus fuck, read more, man
>>19492044My implication is actually that the huddled shape isn't what's attacking us.
>>19491963In my (>>19491794) defense, I for one at least noted that the thing could be a potential threat and we should keep an eye on it while moving onward.
Okay, shit, what's done is done.Let's play already
>>19492006Yeah, sorry about that. Network's a bit spotty at the moment.=Someday, someone will manage to kill you. Put a bullet in your head, shove ten inches of tempered steel right through your spine, you're not particularly concerned how.All you know is that it will not be today.Letting your left hand come away with the gun, you spin around to smash your shield into the knife. You feel the blade skitter across the jagged scar of the otherwise-smooth surface of the device, sparks flying at the contact, and it's with a clatter that you hear the sharp implement fall to the floor. Immediately you lunge forward, right hand managing to grab a handful of garment, and you drag whoever it is to the floor with you. A moment's worth of mutual cursing, kicking and struggling, and you end up on top, gun firmly nudging your captive's chest."Ugh. G-get off! You smell like booze! Get off, god dammit!"You recognize that voice, and it's suddenly clear that you've grabbed someone's cape. White, long and somewhat bloody."It's Sayaka, you stupid bitch! Get off of me! Mami-san's in danger! And point that thing somewhere else, for fuck's sake!"What do you do?
>>19492117>Sayakafucking shoot her
>>19492117"You're the one putting knives at people's backs."Go help Mami.
>>19492117ask her where Mami is, then shoot her after she answers
>>19492117Punch her face for doing shit like that.Rescue Mami, dynamic style. SWAT style.
>>19492117tell her we don't have time for her shit and head for Mami's room
>>19492117>It's SayakaStupid dumb fucking idiot bitch sticking whore rotten gerbil, you retarded bloodsucker, what the fuck are you doing.You fucking piece of shit.Mami might be dead because of your dumb fucking ass
>>19492117Help her up,"What the hell's going on? Mami's in there?" motioning to Mami's room.>>19492132The hell?
>>19492117Shoot the doom-bitch and be sure to burn the corpse, she turns into a witch no matter what timeline she's in
>>19492154Sayaka has a lot of people who hate her.I (>>19492138) do not, but this thread is full of them, clearly.
>>19492153Now here's the man who understands me perfectly
>>19492117>Punch her in the face then let her go and get of her, proceed to save MamiWhile a part of me wants to shot her, I guess she is somwhat of an Ally. Punching will have to suffice for now.
>>19492132>>19492153>>19492167>>19492139I love you guys
>>19492117Don't feel the need to knock around your poor but well-meaning friend any further, and hurry the fuck upstairs.
I never did understand the Sayaka hate, nor will I ever.I second >>19492138. She doesn't deserve any further rough treatment, but it's worth pointing out that she doesn't really have much room to bitch at us about defending ourselves against a knife-wielding assailant.
>>19492194We're already upstairs>>19492209It's certainly worth a moment to give her shit about nearly stabbing us.
>>19492209Sayaka wouldn't die even if you killed her, SHOOT HER! SHOOT HER! SHOOOOoooooT HER!
It may also be worth noting that Mami said it was just QB here with her.Let's shoot the imposter. Assuming that's within the powers of the antagonists, I don't know.
You know, strictly from a pragmatic standpoint, shooting Sayaka would definitely give us away to whatever enemy is around (assuming the noise from our scuffle didn't already). It's in our best interests to stay stealthy so we can get the drop on whatever's after Mami.
Step 1. Cover Sayaka's chest with a pillowStep 2. Pull triggerStep 3. ???Step 4. Save Mami
>>19492254somehow I'd think the struggle we just had already ruined our chances at stealth
>>19492254>>19492267pragmatic standpoint, eh?
I do not hate Sayaka. But I think this is not Sayaka.Shoot her in the knife arm so she won't be able to wield it well in case she's an assailant. If not, well, 'Murderface' has probably done worse before, she'll get over it, she's a lich anyway, so it shouldn't even really hurt much.Then head off for Mami.
>>19492280I surely hope that pu wasn't intended.Goddamn I hate you
>>19492254Sayaka is a doom bitch, and tried to stab us. She's a liability. Shoot her goddammit, shoot her right in the fucking soul stone and keep fucking shooting till you're sure she ain't getting back up.
Jesus fuck this kind of overthinking is leading to some very dramatic incompetence.

>>19492390[spoiler]A witch eats her head.
>>19492390>>19492374It's even more beautiful if Udz is not telling lies
Your blood up at this unexpected, adrenalin-filled altercation, you resist the temptation of pistol-whipping her across the face, and instead settle for calling her a cunt under your breath for nearly stabbing you in the back. You ask, in a louder voice, just what's happening, as you both stand up and compose yourselves."I heard that! And no, I don't have any fucking clue! I just..." Sayaka gulps audibly as she looks at the door to Mami's room, before shaking her head. "I just stopped by because QB was going to give me another assignment! It was like this when I got here, and I tried to get to Mami, but something was--hey, wait! Wait a second!"You've heard enough. Turning your back on your fellow magical girl, you immediately make to force Mami's door open. "Wait a second, you fucking boozehead! We don't know what's in there!"You tell her to fuck off. You've always wanted to do that.The door comes away in your second kick, and light floods your eyes. Bright, blinding light----coming from the muzzle flash of Mami's rifles, at the far corner of the room. She's clamping one bloody hand at her side, slumped against the wall, firing off and discarding the rifles erected in front of her. Discharging them at something from across the room. You immediately recognize it for what it was.A witch. A freshly-turned monstrosity, still humanoid in form. A witch hat jauntily perched on its darkened skull, its flamboyant outfit dripping ichor. Two oversized pistols of strange origin jutting out from its clawed hands.Its head snaps up at your approach, and it smiles at you."Ho...mura."You feel the shield heat up at its attention, and the muted clicking inside the device seem to grow louder.What do you do?
>>19492390You poor, poor soul.So innocent.
>>19492390[nospoilerson/tg/]Mami gets her head bitten off by a witch[/stillnospoilers]

>>19492410Paladin magic girl time, get between the witch and Mami. Then unleash hell from this handcannon
>>19492410Weapons free, weapons free
>>19492409I do endeavor not to. I really haven't seen it. Pretty much all I know about it is what I've read on /tg/. So not much, really.>>19492410Shooty time?>>19492443This also seems reasonable.
>>19492410Our time stop ability should allow us to easily dispatch the witch, given that it's freshly hatched, but with the shield in its damaged state that might have some pretty bad unforeseen consequences.Also: How the hell does it know our (real) name? It must be somebody we know. But of the magical girls we know, two are accounted for and the last uses a spear, not pistols. And Madoka (if she's a magical girl in this timeline) uses a bow.In fact, the only one who uses pistols is...us.I suspect we're looking at our own future witch, courtesy of some kind of time-fuckery.
>>19492443>Let's try to talk It out>talk it out>with a witch>laughingmegukas.jpg
>>19492410>it's a witchScrew the handcannon.Fox two! Fox two!
>>19492490That witch is also calling our name.It's not normal.We should act accordingly
>>19492410>You feel the shield heat up at its attention, and the muted clicking inside the device seem to grow louder.Check what up with our shield. Maybe it has readied another piece of equipment for us?
>>19492410Keep your gun at the ready, but check out what the shield-thing is doing.
>>19492478>in fact, the only one who uses pistols is... HOMURAthe witch degenerated to a point where all she can say is her own name.and we're fucked, something witched homura! if we can survive HER, then it will be the time for THAT!
>>19492410Yo nigga we gotta get outta dis crib, grab your homie (fuck Sayaka just grab titties and curls), toss a flashbang or whatever yo ass is packing, and bail out nigga. We gots to roll outta this bitch and gets some intel before we start playing yo dick my dick with pop guns.
>>19492526In case you hadn't noticed, we ARE Homura.
>>19492526If that's HomuraTHEN WHO WAS WE?
>>19492543>>19492544time travel shenanigans, of course.
>>19492564>>19492558Missing the point. >>19492526 seems to be implying that we are not Homura.
Only one choice:Go FULL HOMU and FIRE EVERYTHING
Oh god it's witch Us, wtf.
>>19492410FIRE ALL GUNS
>>19492574>we are no HomuraWe do have different haircut but still...On the other hand, we know nothing about Storyteller's world yet so why the hell not?
>>19492574You forget that we Homura has time travel. So paradox time.
>>19492654Well, aside the bvious Madoka thing
>>19492654Given the fact that we have the same (rather unique and specific) weapon/tool, and a magical girl's weapon seems to be pretty personal, this seems highly unlikely.
>>19492598>>19492642C'mon y'all, this is /tg/. We have a phrase for this.ALPHA STRIKE.
>>19492665Time/space fuckery.Totally legit.I mean, Madoka of the series broke the universe, so yeah
>>19492478>In fact, the only one who uses pistols is...us.Yuuri in Kazumi Magica uses pistols too.
>>19492662Still missing the point. >>19492478 (the post >>19492526 is replying to) pointed out the paradox possibility, but >>19492526 responded with the implication that we are in fact not Homura at all. To which others replied TIME PARADOX, which doesn't even make sense if we're not actually Homura.
>>19492478homulilly has knitting needles though, not pistols.
Also, I honestly believe It's too early to speculate that hard.We need more clues
>>19492725Pish-posh, quest threads are all about rampant, totally unfounded speculation! It's half the fun!
>>19492738>Pish-posh, quest threads are all about rampant, totally unfounded speculation! It's half the fun!You mean>Pish-posh, quest threads are all about rampant, totally unfounded paranoia! It's half the fun!
>>19492706didn't homura time-travel by changing timeline completely? then it isn't her 'future self', but a potential alternate-timeline self.
>>19492751I'd say it's pretty much the same difference.>>19492754Or perhaps a "past" self. Who know's time travel's fucked up.
>>19492754Homura's time travel worked more like a rewinding or consciousness transfer, not a physical shift between timelines, so the fact that there's a physical version of us (whether future or alternate) means it's not following the same rules our time travel usually uses in the first place. It could be either future or alternate-timeline.
>>19492758>know'sFucking fingers, I swear. Goddamnit, I should know better than that.
Quickly springing forward and interposing yourself between Mami and the Witch, you aim the handcannon one-handedly at the warp-touched figure. It repeats the name with much more relish, seemingly cackling at you."CHIAKII-SAN! GET BACK! I'LL HANDLE THIS!"You can barely hear Mami from the deafening report of her rifles, but even if you could, you definitely wouldn't have followed that order. This witch needed to die, and if it had to take you breaking its face with the gun after you've emptied all eight rounds into it, then so be it.At this, the clicking inside your shield stops, and it turns a complete 180 degrees - locking into place with a crunching of gears and the slap of metal upon metal.The world immediately turns gray. Stopping completely, utterly. A dull iron-cast covering everything. Freezing everything in time.Including the Witch.But instead of the twisted evil being you saw shambling towards Mami, you see only a young woman, with her blonde hair tied into twintails. Holding onto two pistols, scared out of her wits. Staring at you as if you were death itself. Silently pleading to be saved.The witch's mark engraved brightly on her forehead.What do you do?
>>19492819Shoot her in her forehead.>The witch's mark engraved brightly on her forehead.Can this be removed?
>>19492819Shoot her. She's already dead.
>>19492819we need to time-shift the girl. while we can see her in girl form.but how?
>>19492819DisarmLet Mami handle this.We know how to kill, not how to heal shit
>>19492819Use your knife to skin/carve the mark off of her forehead.Unless it's also engraved into the bone. If that's the case, then bang-bang.
>>19492893I'm pretty sure It's magic and no knife is going to skin It off.Just saying
The witch's mark means she's under the control of a witch. She's an innocent being manipulated by magic. We need to disarm and restrain, then track down the actual witch.Or so I'd say if we were a more noble sort. Homura in-canon is already pretty jaded, and it looks like we're even more far gone in that regard in this quest. Just shoot her.
>>19492893The mark is just the outward sign that she's under a witch's spell. It's not physical, more like a glamer.
>>19492923let's knife it away, then.
>>19492935He's trying to tell you that won't do anything
Let's grab Mami and escape. We can help monster girl later.
>>19492952>the joke>your head
>>19492819If the girl isn't a witch, let's go for the disarm.
>>19492819Disarm and contain.
Your eyes narrow behind your glasses as you glare at the Witch's Mark. It meant that this was no mere accident or turning - someone had planned this. A setup that pretty much resulted in Mami bleeding out and you without the breakfast you've been promised.Stepping forward, you press the mouth of your gun directly upon the mark, right at the center of the twintailed girl's forehead. You could almost hear her whimper at this, tears welling up in her eyes and falling out, only to be frozen in the air moments later, glistening. Long ago, you probably would have hesitated. You'd have cared to ask who sent her, or tried to find some way to help.You were looking forward to pancakes, you murmur instead, before pulling the trigger.The gun kicks in your hand as the hammer blasts forward, igniting the powder, sending the round careening through the barrel, punching through skin, bone, and brain. The entry wound is insultingly small for such a caliber, but the exit wound is a blossoming flower of flesh and blood at the back of the girl's head, frozen in time.The world resumes its pace, the gray filter lifting, and you close your eyes from the sight of the witch eroding into nothing from the feet up. Leaving behind a single Grief Seed, its spine embedded into the floor.
>>19493181"Chiaki...san?" Mami's voice comes around, and you turn to glance at her. She's still bleeding, but it seems that Sayaka's tending to her injuries at the moment. "I...I'm sorry, I didn't..." You shake your head, and make to stash your weapon away, when you hear a familiar voice. Not in your ear, but in your mind, like a splinter in your brain. Interrupting your thoughts."You're late. What's your excuse?" The white furry creature - or rather, a horde of it - scampers into the room, fourteen pairs of eyes swiveling to look up at you. They all seem to be chewing something. "Also, what is this curious creature you drew a picture of? Dickbutt?"". . ." You're suddenly very tired.What do you do?
Collect seed. Then check on our friend and maybe Sayaka too,
>>19493181So a witch somehow managed to manipulate a magical girl into becoming a witch? That's not a heartening prospect...>Leaving behind a single Grief Seed, its spine embedded into the floor.But hey, at least we get our breakfast after all. We can use magic to satisfy our nutritional needs, right?
>>19493206>Also, what is this curious creature you drew a picture of? Dickbutt?""That's what I think of you, God dammit!"
>>19493206Clean the place.Request dispatch info.And Pancakes
>>19493206"Fuck off. Some one had turned her. Planned... this shit."Check on Mami. "I'm tired. There still that offer of breakfast?"
>>19493214wrote this before second half was posted.I still say pick up seed. Then tell QB he doesn't pay us by the hour, or at all so he can suck a fat one.
Oh, is this going to have elements of Kazumi in it?
>>19493206>"You're late. What's your excuse?"Late? That's funny, I don't recall being given a specific time to report by...
>>19493206>>19493249>>19493214Seconded. Take grief seed, clean place, eat pancake, argue with QB.
>>19493206"You're lucky I showed up at all, dickbutt."Go over and pick up the seed, inquire about that breakfast.
>>19493265Gonna go with this.
>>19493270If it does then some crazy shit is bound to happen.
>>19493326Spin off to Madoka.I wonder if you were ever around for the Magia Revolution threads udz.
>>19493326Read Kazumi Magica and you will understand what I mean.
>>19493337Sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't say anything specific.
>>19493326A spin-off of Madoka, with even more weird shit happening. And then there is Oriko, that is even more weird, and have even more bad shit. It's like an arm race in how much they can broke magical girls. The answer is : pretty much.
Wait I just remembered what if that witch is a failed attempt at turning a witch back into a magical girl like in kazumi?
>>19493181>>19493206>Take Seed>Ignore QB like usual>Sit down in ruined kitchen>Ask if you're still going to get your pancakesIf no, there is no reason to stay here. Also... Painkillers always sound like a good idea. Only if they're morphine-based though.
I'm still hoping for pancakes
You let the Incubator stew in silence as you sharply nudge up the Grief Seed into the air with the toe of your shoe, catching it with your free hand and pressing it against the Soul Gem on the back of your hand. Purifying the roiling darkness inside it, before tossing the bauble aside, where it's caught by one of the Kyuubeys milling around. Asshole.The Incubators look up at you, before giving a collective shake of their heads, in perfect syncronization. "Silent as always. I don't know what goes on in your head, but your tardiness almost got Tomoe Mami killed. I do hope you reflect on that."
>>19493450"You knew this was going to happen, you asshole?!"
"N-no, it's not her fault, we didn't know..." Mami protests, wincing at Sayaka's crude application of bandages. It sees that whatever it was had clawed her side open, but thankfully they were merely flesh wounds and nothing more. "S-Sayaka-chan, it's okay. I'll keep. Thank you.""You shouldn't coddle a junior like her, you know," Kyuubey now chides the blonde magical girl. "We found her in the middle of nowhere with no memory of who she was. She should at least learn to be disciplined.""She's a good girl," Mami insists, wincing as she now stood up. "And...and she's going to help me clean up, and after that, I'll get her the breakfast she came here for. Right, Chiaki-san?" She smiles at you, bright despite the bloodstains on her face, and the state of her own apartment.Sayaka glowers at you as you return that smile as best you can (which isn't much, even by your standards). Kyuubey lets out a sigh. "Very well. Go and do your things. You," the mass of crimson eyes swivel back to focus at you, "Get your assignment dossier from Sayaka afterwards. And please, try not to kill anyone important this time. I'll...I'll go look and see what caused this."Stupid dickbutt rodent bastard. You'll kill him permanently one of these days.
>>19493450OUR Tardiness?Now where's retard who tried to stab us?
Shoot one of the QBs to vent. It won't make a damndest bit of diference but we may feel better.
Guys. I think we're forgetting something.That huddled thing downstairs. We should probably go check it out.
>>19493546Pretty sure that was Sayaka.
>>19493482One of the Kyuubeys suddenly bursts into bloody chunks following a deafening pistol report - and you blink as Mami, Sayaka and the remaining Incubators turn to look at you - while you're surreptitiously stashing your gun back into your inventory.You shrug. You have an apartment to clean, all of a sudden, and a reward of pancakes to earn.= =And that's that for the first thread. Er, I didn't know this would get any interest at all, but thank you for those who did! also, I'm sorry I ran out of drawings. The next thread will have more original illustrations, hopefully!
