You are a Magical Girl. You wish you were something else, but them's the breaks.It's nighttime. You're in the penthouse suite of a fancy upscale hotel, which is a real trade up from the dingy apartment you call a home. Normally, this would be cause for celebration, and at this time of night you'd either be dead drunk or well on your way being - but unfortunately, you're ass deep in a job you really weren't sure you wanted to take. So right now, you're sober. The most you've been in...well, as far as you can remember.The assignment: security. The principal: a sixteen-year-old idol by the name of Minase Iori. She's been targeted by a group of hardcore otaku that seem to have a penchant for kidnapping and rape. It's already happened to her best friend, and it's your job to make sure it doesn't happen to her.Your mood hasn't improved much, but at least you're being professional about it.
Oh boy, MGNQ time!
Right now, the guards outside had notified the both of you that Takatsuki Yayoi, one of the otaku group's previous victims and the principal's best friend, is currently outside the penthouse suite, awaiting entry. She's not exactly expected, but Iori says that they've talked about her visiting.You're understandably paranoid, and you're not exactly eager to let anyone in, including the guards outside. But the Principal seems to be adamant that it's perfectly all right."Please, Matsuda-san. Yayoi, even in her state right now...she's of no threat to anyone. I should be insulted by you thinking that one of my best friends should be worthy of suspicion, but..." Iori shakes her head. "Yayoi couldn't hurt a fly then, what more now? She flinches whenever someone comes close to her, she jumps at shadows. She is even averse to hugs, when she gave them freely the last I remember her."Iori places a hand on your shield. "Please, Matsuda-san. Don't think ill of my friend. She has suffered enough."How do you respond?
>>19579330Draw our weapons and let her in. Make sure that Iori is not near the door and neither are we.I am suspicious of the way it was described how the guard talked.
>>19579330If we don't let her get this one she'll become stubborn and overly disobedient which could make our job harder.We will first survey the scene outside the door, then scan Yayoi for magic. Then put Iori as far away from the door as possible, and let Yayoi, and only Yayoi, in. The visit shall be limited to ten minutes before we politely but firmly get her to leave.
>>19579330Concede.Stop time, open the door, see what's going on outside, close door, resume time. Further actions depend on status of the outside.
>>19579330Let her in, there's no way this can go wrong.(I'm expecting this to be one of those plotlines from terrible doujins where a woman gets her mind broken by rape and then wants to "Help my friends experience the same pleasure. Don't worry Iori, you'll be like me soon ^_^")
>>19579353If it seems to be something like that we'll happily knock Yayoi unconscious/kill her if necessary. The safety of the Principle far outweighs their happiness.
>>19579353I'm thinking the similar thing, where the victim after breaking become a mind-slave to her captors and does everything they say. They could have sent her here to make an opening.On the other hand Meguca said we have 30% chance of dieing, I doubt a bunch of otakus can be a challenge for us.
>>19579330>How do you respond?It seems like we have some confused ideas about this bodyguard thing. It's not really sustainable to enforce hermitage on the client.A bodyguard should give advice to their client on security, and a smart client should listen to the person they're paying to think about their safety, but "don't ever let your friends into your house" isn't good or reasonable advice.
>>19579330If we do let her in, we should at least get a good look at her. See if she seems as meek and timid as our client said she was after the... incident. If she's otherwise chipper or upbeat, that's a sure sign that shit is going to go down soon.
>>19579352>>19579348>>19579419You glance down at the dainty, perfectly-manicured hand gracing the scarred surface of your shield - and then back up at Iori's face, her expression pleading. Maybe if you were just a little bit sauced, you could have dealt with this much more easily. You're not, though, and your harsh denial for her appeal gets stuck in your throat.It's her rape victim of a friend. Maybe you're laying the professional bodyguard thing a bit too heavy-like. They're about to say goodbye to each other before the other has to leave for another continent.She has someone she cares about. She may be a vapid, hypersexualized pop icon that exemplifies everything that is wrong with today's society, but she wants to see her broken friend one last time.You swallow painfully, before shrugging her hand off your shield. You direct her to move well away from the door, to stay behind you, while you check out the situation outside the door. You'll let her unexpected visitor in, but she shouldn't expect too much."...Thank you, Matsuda-san. This means a lot to me."
We let the client's friend in, that's for sure.The question is, how we go about doing it.Anyway check you Soul Gem - just in case - it should glow if Witch (or someone given Witch Kiss) is nearby. That's pretty much the only thing we have to worry about, since you are well capable to beat any other opponent to pulp just with your bare hands. If it's a Witch, well... you'd have to actually use gun.
>>19579486You ignore her heartfelt thanks as you move forward, closing your hand over the door's handle. The door, for all its ornate design, doesn't have a peephole, and you're forced to peer around the door itself as you pull it open the smallest crack.The situation outside seems to be normal. The guards are still standing guard, and the gorilla you'd roughed up earlier is standing directly in front of the door, with what you assume is Yayoi standing next to him, being completely dwarfed by his frame. She's...got a haunted look to her, which is sad as you can see that she was once one of the more popular idols. Her hair, dark auburn and tied into curly pigtails, seem somewhat flat and disheveled, and her clothes are dark-colored and loose - a far cry from the usually form-fitting and colorful clothes an idol usually wears.A shadow of her former self. You're quite familiar with that sort of thing.What do you do?
>>19579529Ok she looks haunted and is alone. She is to be allowed a 10 minute visit.We open the door, step away from it prepared to take down any threat that tries to pass through, allow her to pass, close the door and keep a very close eye on her. Make sure she doesn't set off any of our freaky magic shit radars. Her interaction with the Principal will be closely monitored and after the allotted time she will be asked to leave.
>>19579529well, we said we'd let her in, so let her inI'd still get a weapon out of our shield just to be safe
>>19579529Guards be extra alert.We don't want Yayoi to go all WE'RE GOING TO SUFFER TOGETHER RPAE SQUAD ADVANCE or some shit.Check her for anything suspicious. I mean It.
>>19579529>What do you do?Tell Yayoi to come in. Stop the bodyguard by death-stare if he tries to follow her. Or to peek.>>19579545>I'd still get a weapon out of our shield just to be safeNo need for gun. You'd just scare the girl.
>>19579529only yayoi enters, non invasive threat check, stay alert for anything suspicious.
>>19579591>No need for gun. You'd just scare the girl.We don't have to swing the thing around. Just have it on hand but hidden
>>19579618Assuming the shield-thingy hands us the same caliber as last time, there won't really be a way to conceal it.You look badass enough even without the gun.
>>19579640Scary and lunatic, yes.Badass is not the word.
>>19579640Behind our back?
>>19579529Escort Yayoi in give the glare of ultimate death and suffering to anyone else who looks like they are planning to follow herLet her stay with Iori as long as she wants but don't let them out of our sightDon't try searching her other than visually or magically it will only lead to complications
>>19579653>Badass is not the word.Semantics.Oh well, I'm just one of the voices in her head. I say there is no need for gun right now, but if the majority thinks the opposite, so be it...
>>19579669Prussian carry. Tucked into our belt on the left side butt facing right, riding between belt and pants
>>19579692>Don't try searching her other than visually or magically it will only lead to complicationsCounter argument: Better have insane girl without the knife rather than having insane girl with knife
>>19579669>>19579699The shield inside is hammer space right?Why not just keep our hands inside the shield while holding a gun?
>>19579714The shield stores and spits out things for us, I don't think we can actually reach into it>>19579707Insane girl with a knife is probably the least of our worries if anything happens. A magical scan should tell us if anything is out of placeAlso attempting to pat down and disarm a rape victim who would be walking around scared while looking like we do is definitely going to end badly
>>19579707Agreed on searching her. It's not like you are going to touch her in an inapropriate way...
>>19579729>Insane girl with a knife is probably the least of our worries if anything happens. A magical scan should tell us if anything is out of place.It's better to prevent such event than having to deal with it, even if we know we could.>Also attempting to pat down and disarm a rape victim who would be walking around scared while looking like we do is definitely going to end badly.There is nothing wrong with the way we look, we even brushed our teeth just a little while ago!
>>19579586>>19579543You're satisfied with what you see, and you increase the gap between the door and the door jamb just a bit more, enough for your hand to slip through - and for both Yayoi and the Guard to get a good look at you. Yayoi seems to be almost alarmed at the sight of your glowering stare, and shrinks back slightly. The guard simply scowls.You point at Yayoi, and wave her closer. The former idol glances up at the guard, seemingly uncertain, before looking back at you and gingerly stepping forward. You click your tongue impatiently and reach forward just a bit more - and Yayoi seems to whimper as you grab her by the wrist.She feels frail underneath her bulky, loose jacket. It was as if you could easily crush her wrist in your grasp by increasing pressure the slightest, smallest bit.Yayoi shivers in your grasp, an expression of tearful hurt on her face, but you ignore this, merely glaring at the guard who seems all too ready to protest."Don't--"
As for the whole "if something goes wrong, we could just time-stop" argument. Sure, we could, but it would be a lot smoother if we managed to do this mission without having to resort to that.Using Magical Girl powers for non-Magical Girl business should be the last resort, not the first course of action. (remeber that the corruption adds up...)Storage function of Shield doesn't really count, it's our Simon's Hat.
>>19579775You tell him to shut up and stay back, before roughly pulling Yayoi into the room just as you throw the door open. You tug her hard enough to cause her to stumble, a feeble cry of surprise and alarm issuing from her lips. In the same movement, you slam the door close with your other hand, while still keeping hold on Yayoi's wrist. You immediately slap the locks back in place, and shove the deadbolt secure."M-Matsuda-san! Please! You're hurting Yayoi!" Iori protests, clearly alarmed at this kind of treatment. You ignore this too. You've already conceded this to her - you're not about to compromise now.Still keeping a grip on Yayoi's hand, you pat her down with your other. The girl's eyes clearly wide, staring and tearful as you pat her down for weapons. You get to her lower body, completely focused on finding hidden weapons - causing you to completely miss Iori's hand slapping you hard across the cheek.The slap isn't that strong, but it stuns you long enough that you step back, your eyes wide behind your own glasses. "MATSUDA-SAN! PLEASE! WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING?!" Iori screeches at you, pulling a positively-crying Yayoi into her arms, shielding her from you. "Weren't you listening a while ago?! I thought we agreed on--!!"We didn't agree on anything. I'm letting you see her, but that's it. We still follow my rules. All we agreed upon is that I'm here for your protection.. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.Stay quiet, move to a chair at the far end of the room, and smoke.
>>19579775>grab rape victim and pull her>nothing could possibly go wrongI think we just went full Sayaka here.
>>19579807And there we goExactly what I thought would happen from searching herDidn't agree on anything
>>19579807Well, that went fucking wonderful>. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.Best act the kind-ish professional. Might as well get some good reps.
>>19579807>[x]We didn't agree on anything. I'm letting you see her, but that's it. We still follow my rules. All we agreed upon is that I'm here for your protection.I propose ultimatum. Either We're going to finish the check or the girls are going to talk with bed between them and gun on the background
>>19579807[X]Stay quiet, move to a chair at the far end of the room, and smoke.If we do the first option it means the Principal will no longer listen to us and go out of her way to be annoying, and we will no apologize for necessary actions. We performed a sufficient check for weapons, not as thorough as I like but sufficient.Get to the chair, light up two cigarettes and stare with cold, dead eyes in their direction, pay keen attention to Yayoi.
>>19579837And you are about the last person I would ever want watching my back in that caseParanoia is only good to a certain degree when you are protecting someone, get too paranoid and you do more harm than goodWhat we did was make a rookie mistake of being too heavy handed. Thats the sort of shit we dislike the gorillas outside for
>>19579807>[X]Stay quiet, move to a chair at the far end of the room, and smoke.Quickly finish the pat down
>>19579807>>. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.
>>19579807>. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.
>>19579842And get out the gun. Holy shit we are creepy.
>>19579807>[x]. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.Sometimes people just won't like what's best for them, no matter how you explain it.
>>19579852I'm okay with that. We're here for a reason.It's not even paranoia, this is basic stuff
>>19579842>2 cigsWe kinda agreed not to smoke while here...
>>19579807>[X]. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.going for the least destructive option.>will end in blood/tears/both.
>>19579807[x]Stay quiet, move to a chair at the far end of the room, and smoke.Make sure that the chair is away from the windows and the skylight, and has a full view of the door.
>>19579860How about we endeavor not to be for a while?
>>19579860Let us not scare the paranoid mentally unstable idol, okay?Crazy is a lot more controllable when you dont trigger the damn thing
>>19579879As we are an inherently asocial and completely broken magical girl with drug problems, i think creepiness is hardwired into our system. Though on second thought, >[x]. . .I'm sorry. I just wanted to make sure.is probably better.
>aggressively searching an all-too-fresh rape victimNot our finest moment.[x] I'm sorry
>>19579903Oh, certainly. Hence, endeavoring. Making an effort to not be overly creepy.
>>19579870No that is amateur stuff and the sort of shit people pull when they are paranoid or out of their depthWe had other ways of checking if she was armed than patting down an unstable rape victim in front of her friend so we simultaneously blew the trust we had managed to build with her and the chance to organize things our way
>>19579913Why are people so obsessed with professionalism? We are a magical girl, we dont do bodyguard work if i am not mistaken. We kill witches.Why should we be particularily good at it?
>>19579870No, we have the magical ability to freeze time and look for signs of magic.Patting down a recent rape victim was a stupid amateurish mistake, the kind of shit that we held the apes outside in contempt for, and kind of unprofessional conduct that Deckard would not accept.
>>19579926Because we have so far tried to be professional about it and speaking from personal experience these guys so far have gone full retard
>>19579926Because this job is worth 2 Grief Seeds.Twice as much as your regular witch hunt.
>>19579926Because we're good at what we do, which is retire Witches. Being a bodyguard isn't part of our usual work, but just because it's not what we normally do, doesn't mean we shouldn't approach it in the same manner that we approach killing Witches: effective, and successful.
>>19579926Because it's not the first bodyguard job we've done, and because since we are doing this, we might as well do it like the pros.
>>19579913Okay, I see your point. But seriously, how exactly we had other ways of checking her?She might be as much of threat as any other person.>>19579927>No, we have the magical ability to freeze time and look for signs of magic.I know that. But, let's say a pair of scissors isn't exactly magical.Just thinking aloud
>>19579934i blame the chucklefucks from the last thread
>>19579941>ability to freeze timeWe could have frozen time, searched Yayoi fully, then released time.We would have been able to search her fully, and because she was frozen in time, wouldn't have experienced any of our searching or the mental trauma it triggered.It's not that hard to think of these things.
>>19579941Time stop and pat down, we probably have at least some magical senses that we could use to detect anything that could be a tip to her having a weapon ( which I would expect a rape victim to have ) and the old standby we tell her what we are about to do and why so we can get her consent to do it
>>19579962>>19579966Okay, that's logical.But to my defense no one actually suggested that before the check
>>19579974So your defense for a stupid action is that you were too stupid to think of a better course of action?
>>19579962>We would have been able to search her fully, and because she was frozen in time, wouldn't have experienced any of our searching or the mental trauma it triggered.Or conversely, she would have felt us touching her in every single place all at once for an instant.
>>19579993Yeah, that's pretty much It.Checking her with time-stop seems obvious now and I do feel stupid but still, at that time checking her without time stop still was better than not checking her at all
>>19580003She wouldn't have understood what it was though so we would be better off than we are now
>>19580013it was suggested several times... >>19579352people are just retarded
>>19579903>>19579877>>19579862>>19579858Your cheek still burning at the spot where Iori's palm had solidly connected with your face, you glance towards the locked door - then back at the idol and the girl sobbing into her nightgown. You murmur what could be the lamest apology in the entire world, and with your voice hoarse from thirst and cigarettes, it probably doesn't sound all that good.At least your breath is minty-fresh."D-don't you think I know that you're doing this for my safety?! I'm just as scared as anyone else! But you didn't need to manhandle her like some piece of meat, Matsuda-san!" Iori snaps at you over Yayoi's feeble sobs. "I thought...I thought you'd be different than those idiots outside! I suppose I was wrong after all - you're the same, and all you're probably thinking about is the paycheck you get after this, aren't you?!"You stay silent, not really having a reply to this tirade. Shaking your head, you merely cross your arms. A drink would be good right about now...Iori glares at you for a few more moments, before focusing her entire attention towards Yayoi, trying to comfort the girl, whispering directly into her ear. She leads the tearful former idol to the bed, making her sit down, and carefully wipes her tears away with her own fingers. It'd almost look romantic, if it weren't for the fact that you caused it.
>>19580024That's not even refering to the Yayoi's check-up
>>19580027You stand there for a while, slightly unsure of what you're actually doing there, before shaking your head and making for one of the chairs placed across the room. Might as well start that bedside watch--"Get out of my room, Matsuda-san."Iori's voice is chilly, imperious, the same as your first meeting. "You've checked my room for security gaps, right? If you've found none, then get out. You may stand guard outside, just like the rest of the hired help."She's standing in front of you, now, and it looks like she's not going to take no for an answer.God DAMMIT, Kyuubey.How do you defuse this situation?
>>19580043>see time-stop>hey could that be useful elsewhere?>no way man, one time use only. timestop is for pussies
>>19580003>Or conversely, she would have felt us touching her in every single place all at once for an instant.Oh god, the fanfic potential of this mechanic...
>>19580069Okay, so maybe now we can check Yayoi with time stop?And then leave?
>>19580027Sulk and mutter: "I'm not here for your comfort, I'm here to prevent that someone does terrible things to you. If you want love and tenderness ring up a Callboy. "
>>19580069I'm sorry Iori but I can't do that.I was hired as close security so to do my job I have to be able to watch you personally
>>19580069wait, can't we time travel?
>>19580069"I can't, and I won't. I'm here to provide you with close security, and that means keeping you in sight. I can't do that if I'm outside the room, and can't hear or see what's going on."
>>19580069I am not here for your happiness, I am here for your safety. If you want to yell and scream at me for my behavior go ahead, if you feel the need to slap me more I will accept it if that what is what it will take to keep depraved men from doing horrific things to you.
>>19580069>>19580089More or less this. We must be ferm.If anything, we do NOT leave this room. An idol alone is an idol raped.
>>19580100Yes we can. Not sure it is working or worth doing right now since we don't know how much strain it causes or if our shield being broken would stop it
>>19580069"I can't do that, Iori-san. If I leave, then it's the same as never having been here. I'm here to keep you safe where they can't, and I can't do that if I'm not here. For what it's worth, I AM sorry for mistreating Yayoi-san, it was a bit over zealous of me."
>>19580118fair enough, i keep forgetting it's damaged.also, to the people who were talking about transforming and stuff.i think we are already transformed
>>19580139Yeah, we live in our mahou shoujo outfit for the most part
>>19580069>How do you defuse this situation?"Be advised. I'm mean, nasty and tired. I eat concertina wire and piss napalm and I can put a round in a flea's ass at 200 meters. So why don't you go hump somebody else's leg, mutt face, before I push yours in. "Giver her our trademark glare and add: "You do your job and better let me handle my job my way."
>>19580118That's actually not sure. Our power is specifically time _stop_. The time _travel_ hability is tied to our _wish_, that is, saving somebody until we actually get it right.We can time stop at will with our magic, but time traveling is only done because we wished it at the very beginning.
>>19580168>everyone says being on the clients good side helps>purposefully tries to antagonize the client.you're that guy from the last thread aren't you.
>>19580168>antagonizing the principalBad idea.There is a difference between being ferm in our response and being insulting.
>>19580168Yeah, that's probably not gonna help.
>>19580069>How do you defuse this situation?I know it might sound crazy, but... let's try being honest."Sorry about that. This is not the kind of job that I usually do. You are right that I'm more used to dealing with that sort of guys" *pointing at the door* "than with actual people with normal feelings, so I might lack some subtlety. But it wasn't always that way, even through all the stuff that came with the odd jobs, I remember that much... and seeing you two here now reminds me of that. The way you care for your friend is... admirable. I'm sorry that I have to be the mean one here, but it's for the best."Give her couple seconds to process that."How about I promise I'm now gonna sit tight and quietly here, just keep my watch and won't even know about me?"Move a bit closer to her and whisper so the other girl can't hear and try a bit of a lighter tone "also I won't try to steal your underwear."
>>19580216>honestythat's fucking brilliant man
>>19580190You're confusing Magical Girl Noir Quest with Perfect-Bodyguard-Quest, aren't you?Frankly, we shouldn't give a single fuck about her disposition towards us. At the moment we're an annoyed magical girl that's lacking sleep, booze and pancakes and I really think that our supply of "nice and happy" pretty much ran out after you chucklefucks decided that we should apologize for our treatment and Minase went full ballistic. So fuck you and your "everyone says being on the clients good side helps" because that obviously didnt work.
>>19580168>that cute picture>that stupid plan
>>19580216I quite like it. Well, aside from the last bit, seems excessive.>>19580228No, it was going fine until we manhandled the rape victim.
>>19580241>I quite like it. Well, aside from the last bit, seems excessive.It's sort of reference to the stuff discussed in previous thread.
>>19580228>Guys it's ok if I'm an insufferable asshole and fuck up on purpose, I'm totally roleplaying my character. Isn't this FUN?
>>19580254I dig it, but it doesn't mean we have to say it. We already covered pretty well that stealing her panties would be beneath us.
>>19580106>>19580130>>19580116"You...you just don't get it, do you?" Iori is still enraged, but she seems to be getting a handle on her temper. "Yes, you've made it abundantly clear that you're here for MY SAFETY, and that if I wanted someone to make me feel like a human being even under such circumstances, I should look elsewhere. I realize, right now, what you truly mean by that." Her words dripping with indignation and venom, she turns her back on you, as if loathe to even recognize your existence by looking at you while the both of you talked."You may earn your paycheck until tomorrow morning, Matsuda-san, but I'd better not see hide or hair of you when I wake up. I will contact Kyuubey then and have him send me another agent. Someone who hasn't forgotten how to be a decent human being." She points towards a single desolate chair at the far corner of the room. "You may do your guarding there. Far away from Yayoi, and far away from me. She'll be staying over until tomorrow morning, so it'll be better if she doesn't see you looming over us while we slept."This just gets better and better, doesn't it? At least you're not going to leave.Quietly agree, but stop by the wine closet before going to said seat. You'd earned it, at least, and it looks like it's going to be a long night.Refuse. You need to be close to them. Bedside watch is not up for debate.
>>19580228It DOES help. Remember how good we were doing before groping a recent rape victim?
>>19580228It was going well until chucklefucks like you thought searching a tape victim was a good ideaWas may be a pissed off drug addict mahou shoujo but we do our fucking job properly and that includes making sure we don't piss off the principal we are trying to guard to the point she tells us to go fuck off and die
>>19580270Okay, now try this. Still not too late for it.>>19580216
>>19580270Quietly agree but make sure that chair has a clear view of them
>>19580270[x]Quietly agree, make sure that the chair has clear line-of-sight to the doors and to the bed.
>>19580233>>19580241>No, it was going fine until we manhandled the rape victim.Look. QB gave is the job. He said we get two Greef Seeds for it. Being paranoid is and all is completly justified because we've been there already, and now how this shit actually turns out. It wouldn't even fucking surprise me if the Rape-Squad isn't even human anymore.
>>19580270>Refuse. You need to be close to them. Bedside watch is not up for debate.Fuck it, she's already pissed, let's go for broke.Though, working in >>19580216 would be good.
[x] Refuse.An angry idol is still better than a raped idol. And it's not like we'll see her again after she leaves, anyway.
Refuse. You need to be close to them. Bedside watch is not up for debate.
>>19580303Which would actually make our job multiple times easier since we could sense them if they were not human I am pretty sureAnd being paranoid isn't good because we are emotionally dead, we don't care about her or any of this shit so the most we could get is slightly skittish from a lack of nicotine, booze and pancakes
>>19580289I think it's too late by now.>>19580303So what if the threats to the principal aren't human any longer?The point still stands: things were going well, the principal trusted us, was willing to cooperate, and then we went ahead and committed an amateurish mistake which has made our job harder.
>>19580262>A BLOO BLOO BLOO! YOU DONT PLAY THE CHARACTER THE WAY I IMAGINED HIM!You reek of That Guy. >>19580281>Was may be a pissed off drug addict mahou shoujo but we do our fucking job properlyThats pretty much killing Witches. Not being comforting for Rape-Victims and their friends. We also shouldn't give a fuck about her hating us or not. because its just pretty much irrelevant.
>>19580353>You reek of That Guy. And so do you.
>>19580347> amateurish mistakeWe are not a goddamn professional bodyguard. How hard is that to understand?
>>19580384But we're TRYING to be, thus what we did was a massive fuck up.
>>19580353>This fucking guy
>>19580384No but so far we have proven to be a pretty fucking effective one and have obviously done some of the same line of work in the past since we had an idea of what not to do like groping the rape victimEarlier on it was even mentioned that we hate this type of job implying pretty clearly we have done this shit before and know what we are meant to be doing
>>19580384We're not a professional bodyguard, but that doesn't mean we're not a professional. And while we're a professional Magical Girl and Witch killer, that doesn't mean that we can't act in a professional manner when we take other jobs.
>>19580395No. Some of you suddenly decided that we should that without having a goddamn clue about it. How about sticking to things we're actually good at? Being a grumpy unsocial magical girl and killing things instead of.. I don't know. Whatever the fuck you guys are trying to do.
Okay, how about we stop squabbling why we fucked up and think of a way to get out of it... only real suggestion right now is >>19580216
>>19580384>>19580353Not the most challenging of jobs, you suppose. Just another babysitting job. Otakus aren't the most threatening sort, either. You'd think a normal security detail would have sufficed, but her studio seemed adamant that special measures were taken.Posted from the second thread. We have done this shit before and know our way around watching stupid rich assholes
>>19580429We are trying to get paid homie. We get two grief seeds out of this if we don't fuck it up, so we should stop fucking it up.
>>19580413Guys, why do you even arguing. It's perfectly normal we're trying to be somewhat meta. It's not like we can roleplay every single thing when our actions are limited and every one here has a different idea about It.If anything, It's my fault for insisting on the check-up and totally forgetting about the time gig.Let's just go on.
>>19580470>why do you even arguingWhat else are we gonna do while we wait for Deculture to post?
>>19580489We could always plan ahead
>>19580470Fine. >>19580270[x]Refuse. You need to be close to them. Bedside watch is not up for debate.I still think we should put Minase back into her place, she seems to misunderstanding something.
>>19580489Dump Meguka pics?
>>19580505>I still think we should put Minase back into her place, she seems to misunderstanding something.Misunderstand what?She seems to understand just fine that we don't care about her comfort, and only about her safety as part of our job. And because of that, we're getting replaced in the morning with another Magical Girl, probably Sayaka or Mami.Which likely means that we aren't going to get paid those two grief seeds, either.
>>19580511Oh god plaease, no. Picture dumps in Quest threads are a bad sign.
>>19580323>>19580310>>19580304You may have apologized for earlier, but you're not about to make any more concessions. You tell her - or rather, the back of her head - that sitting from across the suite isn't really optimal to what you were paid to do. A bedside watch is what is going to happen. Both of them would simply have to just ignore your presence.". . .I hate you, Matsuda-san. No, I think I've gone past that." She murmurs, turning slightly to look at you from the corner of her eye. "I pity you. You've allowed yourself to get to this state that you don't even fully comprehend why I'm angry at you, and why I need to be as far away from you as possible." She looks away, crossing her arms. "Now I don't know who to be more frightened of - the otaku trying to kidnap and rape me, or the girl I'm paying to protect me."She lets out a sigh, and shakes her head. "If you're going to sit beside the bed, sit on the side where I'll be sleeping. I don't want you anywhere near Yayoi."She stalks off, quietly fuming, leaving you there to...well, you're not sure. Probably feel stupid, since that's what you've been doing.You glance at them, and they seem to be getting ready for bed, chatting with hushed voices. You turn towards the door leading out of the suite.Ask one of the gorillas outside for a transceiver tuned to their frequency, so you could get updates on their patrols.Wait for them to fall asleep, and then move to bedside watch position.Call a friend.
>>19580511i like that plan
>>19580520if anything, post the other half of the picture as well
>>19580527[x]Ask one of the gorillas outside for a transceiver tuned to their frequency, so you could get updates on their patrols.If there's going to be an attack, we may as well get some advance warning.
[X]Ask one of the gorillas outside for a transceiver tuned to their frequency, so you could get updates on their patrols
>>19580527>[x]Ask one of the gorillas outside for a transceiver tuned to their frequency, so you could get updates on their patrols.Then the second option
>>19580527[X]Wait for them to fall asleep, and then move to bedside watch position.Do not interact with the gorillas.
>>19580527>[x]Ask one of the gorillas outside for a transceiver tuned to their frequency, so you could get updates on their patrols.then>[x]Wait for them to fall asleep, and then move to bedside watch position.
>>19580549AgreedThey won't be able to help us much anyway if what we are expecting comes to pass.They were no use for Yayoi after all
>>19580572Still, I'd like to know If something is going on outside.
>>19580527>". . .I hate you, Matsuda-san. No, I think I've gone past that.""...I'm fine with that.". Things were probably easier when our name was still Murderface. Nobody would go all uppity on a girl called "Murderface".>[x]Call a friend.Let's relieve our frustration by sending obscene Drawings to QB again. Fucking cat. It's all his fault anyway. Giving us a goddamn assignment where we have to socialize.
>>19580575They may be compromised and it will involve opening the door and turning our back on the principal again.
>>19580572They are stupid, not useless
>>19580594Judging from your picture and Its filename, you'd like this one.
[x] Call a friend.Phone Mami and tell what we've done, and how can we fix it.
>>19580539>Posting Yuri on a christian imageboard. >I shiggy you diggy
>>19580618My command is your wish.Also you are reading this in my voice, such is the power of mind control.
>>19580652Is it done, Yuri?
>>19580524Hey, it could be worse. Someone could set up an IRC channel. That never works out well from what I've seen.
>>19580527>Wait for them to fall asleep, and then move to bedside watch position.
>>19580617That's actually a good idea
>>19580546>>19580542>>19580541You leave the girls alone and make for the door, slowly and carefully undoing each lock so as not to make too much noise while Iori and Yayoi are talking. You pull the door open a few inches, and you call out for one of the guards. He seems to smirk at you, but he quickly smartens up at seeing your trademark glare. You ask for a transceiver, or something to help you hear the details about their patrols - and he hands you a foldable headset, withdrawn from his own coat pocket. It seems to be his.You don't thank him as you snatch it out of his grasp, and slam the door shut before he could react. You swiftly engage the locks again, studiously ignoring the glare Iori's shooting at you. You're not exactly doing things right, but you're doing them how you've always done it. So it works out somewhat. Maybe. You don't know.You unfold the headset and slip it on, the single earbud sitting comfortably in your ear. You turn it on with a tap, and immediately you hear the clipped chatter of the guards as they make their patrols. Nothing of note, but you do hear them grumble about some whisky-reeking little cunt ordering them around.You smile slightly at this, glancing back towards the two girls. They're already in bed, buried underneath the covers, and they seem to be......Well. The painting in the completely opposite direction is suddenly interesting.Look away. This isn't a peep show.Look. They're not paying attention to you, that's for sure.
[x]Ask one of the gorillas outside for a transceiver tuned to their frequency, so you could get updates on their patrols.
>>19580698...Well, I'll be.
>>19580527[x]Call a friend.Call up Mami. Bodyguard duty is her specialty, and she's easier to talk to than Sayaka. Ask her for advice on how to proceed, if there's anything we can do to patch things up with Iori, or if it's a lost cause and we should accept our dismissal from this assignment with grace.
>>19580698Look, they aren't paying attention to youPlus this is a good chance for the otaku's to break in and rape
>>19580698>>Look away. This isn't a peep show.inb4chucklefucks
>>19580698>Look away. This isn't a peep show.
>>19580719You were too slow, it seems.
>>19580698[x] Look.Do NOT lose visual contact with the VIP. Or throw souls.
>>19580698[X]Look. They're not paying attention to you, that's for sure.Seriously completely paranoid here. What if the other girl is a plant or if suddenly rapists?
>>19580725my 4chanX isn't working properly.
>>19580698Look away because we're not creepy.[tgspoiler]Oh who am I kidding, we're all creepy. I'm just the only one with self control.[/tgspoiler]
>>19580698Look, just not directly at them. If there are signs of force and distress, we can separate them.
>>19580698[x]Look away. This isn't a peep show.If this is the perfect chance for the otaku to break in, then we need to be paying attention to the windows, skylight, and door; not what's happening on the bed.
>>19580698[x]Look away. This isn't a peep show.
>>19580749They may not be regular otaku so we should check for any signs of magic while we are at it
Fuck, I don't know.Can we have a seat that still allows us to monitor the room while not beeing a creepy, whisky-reeking cunt?Also, I have a feeling that Iori would try to gain some privacy even If we would try to play It nice
Look away, but keep an ear out for anything untoward.
>>19580698[x]Look. They're not paying attention to you, that's for sure...I've got the felling that any second now one of them is going to turn into an eldritch abomination. It would be a fitting end for a shitty night, though.
>>19580768Also, I think I actually MIGHT be paranoid but what If despair filled Yayoi is a witchthat we failed to detect?And that witch is currently "kissing" our client.Just saying
[x]Look away. This isn't a peep show.She already thinks we are just another gorila. Don't make her think we are also one of the otakus.
>>19580774she would catch us, and then our only excuse would be "we were afraid iori was going to turn into a monster"
>>19580698Okay...Something weird is going on. Pay attention. Stay vigilant.Do we have any magic sensors? If yes, check if they're being influenced by something.
>>19580774For some reason, that's making me think of the picture where Space Pirates are playing some tabletop RPG. Goes something like:>And you encounter...The Hunter!And the players freak out.
>>19580791Also 'you hired me to watch you, goofus'She's probably doing it in part to make us uncomfortable anyway.
>>19580782Unless she was a magical girl, she won't turn into a witch. Only magical girls turn into witches.
>guys playing girls>184 posts
>>19580698>[x]Look. They're not paying attention to you, that's for sure.Keep facing in their direction at least partially, pull your phone, fiddle with Diary function and try to remember the password to unlock it. Failing that, scribble something suitable for QB and send him a message. Anyway, don't look directly, but keep them in your arc of sight.
>>19580802Normally, yes.But this isn't universe isn't normal.
>>19580805Welcome to /tg/. Enjoy your stay.
>>19580815Hello there, Winter
>>19580824>saging because Winter arrived
>>19580832saging because the post isn't really bumpworthy.I do appreciate Winter.
>>19580832Hey. Better me than Summer. That dudes an asshole.>>19580824Seriously though, why the sage?
I never saw the point in saging on tgThis board is so fucking slow it does nothing anyway
>>19580832I couldn't resist
Well, at least there isn't an Otaku under the bed.
>>19580858>>19580855Okay, okay, I got that thing from /jp/.Never meant anything bad. You guys are cool
>>19580855Yeah summer is an asshole. Along with half the tripfags on tg though
>>19580855But Winter, I like you
>>19580783>>19580720>>19580719You give the two girls the privacy they need - at least, as much of it as you can give them, what with still being in the same room and being in plain sight and all. Long ago, you probably would've been flustered at the sight of them, but now it's not really embarrassment over what they're doing but more of being there while they're doing it.You lean against the wall next to the door, studiously keeping your eyes away from them, and wait for them to...finish, so to speak. You fiddle with your phone while doing so. Tempting as it is to call Mami, doing so may ruin the current mood.It takes them the best part of an hour before you see that they've finally fallen asleep in each other's arms, huddled close together. Iori being the big spoon, Yayoi being the small one.You're...you're a bit jelly, but you have a job to do.You quietly make your way towards the bed, and take your seat at Iori's side. Careful not to make any sudden moves that could make a noise and disturb them.
Take a picture with phone.Hey, a little blackmail material never hurt nobody.
>>19580832>>19580855Sage prevents bumping the post when they post something not related to the thread. Sage isn't a downvote or a negative thing like others would have you believe. He's using it correctly.
>>19580882I already have one creepy fetishist after me. I don't need another.>>19580877/tg/ really is the best board. We seem to discuss everything here. Anyway, I'll just shut up now and wait for Deculture to finish up so we can make a choice.
>>19580910No.We may be a hardboiled wreck of a Magical Girl using alcohol and cigarettes to mask the pain that has become our existence, but we're not a creep like that.
>>19580885At least the chair is comfortable. It seems like it's been used for this exact purpose. Actually, it's a bit too comfortable - it's more of a lazy boy chair than anything else, and you feel your eyelids getting droopy as you unconsciously let yourself sink into the soft cushions.You haven't been sleeping well. Time to stop yourself from falling asleep.Send a message to Mami. Maybe texting her will do you good.Get coffee from the suite refrigerator. They probably have some sort of coffee, but it's at the other end of the suite.
>>19580910That is not professional!
>>19580937Coffee. But stay alert.
>>19580937[x]Send a message to Mami. Maybe texting her will do you good.And put our cellphone on silent mode; don't want to wake the two girls.
>>19580910Asshole>>19580937[X]Send a message to Mami. Maybe texting her will do you good.
>>19580937Text the blonde.
>>19580937>[x]Send a message to Mami. Maybe texting her will do you good.This. Leaving room is bad.Draw another dickbutt for QB
>>19580937Send a message to Mami. Maybe texting her will do you good.
>>19580885Check Gem.Text something rude to QB.Listen to the talk on bodyguards' radio.Regret the promise not to drink.Do _not_ take picture(s).
>>19580937Do not leave the room under any circumstances.Stand up and walk around a little if we have to, and go ahead and text Mami.
>>19580923>I already have one creepy fetishist after me.What.
Hooold upMuch as I appreciate discretion, just what were they doing?I mean, rape, psychological damage, all of that stuff.>>19580910Ha ha no
>>19580937Hang upside-down from the ceiling to make it easier to stay awake.Bonus points, it improves your gun-waving batman impression.
>>19580937>>19580937Do both. [x] Sip your coffee while texting Mami.
>>19580937Hey, wait a minute.How about this:[x]Stop time, go to the fridge and get coffee, come back to the chair and resume time, text Mami while putting cellphone on silent mode.We've got the power to stop time, we may as well make use of it.
>>19580964Comforting each other.
>>19580937Text MamiCoffee would be too noisy and it involves leaving them out of our line of sight
>>19580937Text Mami, get coffee quickly while waiting for reply.
>>19580972>WITH GREAT POWER THERE MUST ALSO COME - - GREAT RESPONSIBILITY! So we will not abuse stop time
>>19580963Trust me, you don't want to know. On the plus side, the managed to get someone to drawfag. On the downside, they probably fapped over it.
>>19580978Somehow reminds me of thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttSnYY3vj1c
>>19580998>we will not abuse stop time>this is how we got our own personal armory by stealing from the JSDFIt's not abuse, it's what we normally use it for.
>>19580972>ignore poor girl's trauma, deal with her the rough way >time-stop for coffeeQB would be so proud of us rigth now, we are almost gettin' on his level of dickery.
>>19581010>>ignore poor girl's trauma, deal with her the rough way Noooooooo, you see, we simply saved the mana so we could use It for things like that.Everything was planned accordingly
>>19581010>ignore poor girl's trauma, deal with her the rough way >traumaThere you go.
>>19580964Rape can push some people into relationships or homosexualityIt is largely because of trust. She knows Iori won't hurt her and she is female so to Yayoi it could be comforting to have thatA girl I grew up with was actually raped and she still can't stand to have any men touch her whatsoever not a pat on the shoulder or anything not even her from father and brotherShe is a lesbian now because the only person she could stand being close to her was another friend she grew up withSounds like bullshit when I type it out really but it is the honest truth
>>19580937>coffee>refrigeratorDo what now?
>>19581059Why do I always read that as fappuccino
>>19581040Bottles, cans, jars, etc. prepared coffee drinks.
>>19581066You are not alone
Next time we go ... umm - shopping... we should get some coffee pills. Would come handy in situations like this.
>>19581099You mean caffeine pills? Oh yeah, those would come in handy. So would speed, or meth in small doses to keep us awake.
>>19581081>>19581066It's your subconsciousness trying to tell you that you like dicks by associating milky-white fluids with semen.
>>19581114Caffeine pills are rather more socially acceptable, safe, and legal.
>>19581114Good point, we are already a drug addict so we may as well have a variety of pharmaceuticals on hand
>>19581036>still can't stand to have any men touch her whatsoever not a pat on the shoulder or anything not even her from father and brotherI can confirm this much personally.Had similar thing happen, except there was less of rape and more of heavy physical punishment/abuse.
>>19581122Speed and meth were developed to help keep soldiers aware. True story. In small doses, it's still prescribed.
>>19580960>>19580954>>19580952>>19580950This is bad. You've been moving about ever since you woke up today, and you haven't really slept a wink since then. You're starting to feel the fatigue slowly seep in, your body somewhat giving in to this unusual level of comfort. Compared to your futon, you're sitting in a chair made out of goddamn clouds.Shaking your head, you try as focus as much as you can. You pull out your cellphone and start to type out a message to Mami. Talking to her should perk you up some, even if it's just through text.Iori, fast asleep, pulls Yayoi closer to her, murmuring her name.". . ."What message do you send Mami?
>>19581150Isn't adderall basicaly watered down meth?
>>19581150It's also prescribed for emergency weight lossIn the range of "you eat five pizzas per sitting fat" levels, one of my friends is on it because if we cut his arms and legs off he would be sphericalI am more cylindrical than he is so it isn't on the plans for me
>>19581150Yes, prescribed, which would require either robbing a pharmacy, or convincing a doctor to give us a prescription. Easier to just buy caffeine pills, which have the same general effect without the same amount of hassle. Even if we're just stealing them in a time stop.
>>19581178Oh shit, get some caffeine up this bitch, stat.We are not falling asleep on the job.
>>19581178Rant.Ask for advice and talk as long as possible so we can stay awake
>>19581178First up see that she is ok after nearly being filletedThen say we need help fixing a situationThen lay out the issue with the idols
>>19581178Ask if she's ok.
>>19581178how the fuck do you get your hair to do thatis that like your magic power or something
>>19581178Ask if she's better now.Lay out our current situation with Iori and ask for advice: should we try to patch things up (how?), or gracefully accept that we're getting pulled from this assignment in the morning?After sending the message, stop time, grab coffee, return to chair, release time.
>>19581222>After sending the message, stop time, grab coffee, return to chair, release time.This. So much
>>19581222Ill support this
>>19581204This! Rant and mope about the assignment QB gave you to Mami.
>>19581215Drugs are "okay" when you are about to:a) kill - frontline soldiersb) die - terminally illTo quote one of my friends: "The only upside of looking after dying granddad is unlimited supply of Codeine pills."
>>19581222I like this idea.
>>19581222We're being paid to be a bodyguard, not a friend.If she doesn't like it, fine. She can get raped after we leave.
>>19581222There's only so much room allowed in a single text message, so you break it up into parts that hopefully Mami won't mind reading. You ask her first if she's alright, then segue into what you're doing at the moment - that is, guard duty. You ask her what to do in your current situation with Iori, and what you can to try and fix things. You end the series of messages with an apology of how late it is.Your phone beeps quietly as it notifies you that you've successfully sent the messages through, and you stuff it back into your inventory.Now, the hard part. You need to get to the refrigerator and the caffeine it contains. You've decided to...use what you have in a somewhat creative manner. You don't like doing this at all, stopping time itself for things like this - but this could end up being a matter of life and death.You stand up, somewhat unsteadily from the chair, and slowly - carefully - turn the shield clockwise, thirty degrees. Careful not to let the gears grind too much, or the locks slap into place too loudly.The world turns gray. Time stopping all around you, freezing everything into stasis.Everything except for the pink-haired girl now standing at the very center of the suite, looking at you with midnight black eyes.And she's smiling.You suddenly find yourself no longer needing any coffee whatsoever.What do you do?
>>19581351Brandish gun and ask what she wants.Don't shoot unless she tries to get closer to you
>>19581351Walk out of the room, and whisper to her.ask what brand of hair dye she uses
>>19581351"....You're a bit early, aren't you? Can't I at least get some coffee before we do this?"
>>19581351UNDO TIMESTOP!UNDO TIMESTOP!we know she isn't real, and we know we tend to go crazy when near her.for god sakes just undo the time stop
>>19581351Murmur "Not now."
>>19581351Sigh heavily and say "...Didn't we go through this already? What makes you think that something changed since the last time?"
>>19581395>we tend to go crazy when near herOh shit, that's true.Bail out
>>19581405>Murmur "Not now."And undo time-stop.
>>19581351WEAPONS FREE!FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE
>>19581452Ha ha no
>>19581351I haven't kicked the bucket yet. Go back to whatever it is you hallucinations do when you're not fucking with my head.
>>19581452>shooting at hallucinations>shiggity diggity
>>19581351Can we stop the timestop? If so, do so and turn around and make sure that Iori is still safe.Guess we won't be needing that coffee now.
So how do people know it's a hallucination?
>>19581520No no noo. Do not close to the girls with timestop on and the pink ghost present.Kyoko said that this shit is making us speaking lovercraftian. We don't want to do somethingweird to the girls
>>19581547He said stop the timestop first. Learn to comprehension.
>>19581531She's dead, we killed her.Gem doesn't give any warnings. She's not real.Failing that, we are just rolling to disbelieve.
>>19581557Oh welp, I missed that.
>>19581520The appearance of the smiling girl with the pink hair and dark eyes doesn't exactly surprise you, but it doesn't comfort you either. The entire world rippling in its dull cast-iron shade, you glance back at the bed, where your Principal and her friend lay sleeping....She's still there, still asleep, frozen in time but safe. Everything's alright, except for this sudden reunion.You turn back towards the apparition, who is still standing there, quietly, smiling at you like an idiot. You make to cancel the time stop - your left hand closing over the rim of your shield - but it's then that she slowly waves at you, as if trying to make you come closer.You're not crazy, of course. You pull your shield back to its original position, and time resumes its normal flow. The phantasm disappears along with the time stop, as if it never were.Christ. You don't really need this, do you?Make the trip to the refrigerator and get the damn coffee. Go back to the chair, sit, and wait it out. You're no longer sleepy anycase.
>>19581677>[x]Make the trip to the refrigerator and get the damn coffee. Fuck everything. We ARE going to get the damn thing
>>19581677[x]Go back to the chair, sit, and wait it out. You're no longer sleepy anycase.That little burst of adrenaline should see us till morning.
>>19581677Getting coffee means walking close to where that thing was standing. Screw that, sit back down.
>>19581677[x]Go back to the chair, sit, and wait it out. You're no longer sleepy anycase.No need for coffee now, and leaving these lesbians alone is asking for trouble.
>>19581677Go back to the chair. Coffee is unnecessary now.
>>19581677Make the trip to the refrigerator and get the damn coffee. And keep a goddamn ear out for any sort of intrusions
>>19581677>[x]Go back to the chair, sit, and wait it out. You're no longer sleepy anycase.Make mental note about doing short time-stop at some abandoned place and unloading magazine in her face. Or dozen.She might not be real, but it will certainly make you feel better.
We dont need coffee. Get a bottle of wine. This is fucking creepy.
>>19581677Fridge. Can't deal with this shit.
>>19581719>hallucination>TIME TO GET DRUNK
>>19581677Sit the fuck down.We are not going to go get coffee while this weird shit is going on.
>>19581677>[X]Go back to the chair, sit, and wait it out. You're no longer sleepy anycase.sit down, comfy chair will not betray or abandon us!
>>19581677>[x] Realize you are in a Quest thread. Funny as hell, it is the most horrible thing you can think of.
>>19581677Sit downWe aren't sleepy after that
Is the quest done for today?
>>19581788it's been 11 minutes dude. SWQ takes about 30 between posts, Gen A takes about 20
>>19581788It's only been 11 minutes since Deculture's post, and they need to draw up the next picture. Be more patient.
>>19581788...Are you serious? He just updated.
>>19581788Never mind. Apparently 4chanx stopped updating
>>19581806>>19581810>>195818114chanx stopped updating. The last update for me was 1 hour ago. I was confused why no one posted for over an hour.
>>19581836>>19581821HuhMine works fine.
>>19581821Manually refresh the page, next time. Just to check.Also, get the damn coffee
>>19581849It can occur from his side.
>>19580190RAIDAHWHY ARE YOU BACK?!
>>19581857Looks like a case of ghost in the shell...>sunglasses.jpgdot DLL
>>19581862Yeah, I did when my post didn't show up.Also, it seems we hit bump limit.
>>19581900Fair enough.>hit the bump limitI'm not surprised. So did the first thread.
>>19581709>>19581710>>19581708>>19581707You sink back into the comfortable grasp of the miraculous lazyboy chair, letting yourself get enveloped once more in its cozy embrace. The sleep's been driven out of your body by that little encounter, but it doesn't change the fact that your body's nearing its limits. You'll probably last for a few more hours, at best.As you mull over the appearance of the pink-haired bitch, you hear the soft beep notifying you of a message received.It must be Mami's reply, you think as you make to pull your phone out of your inventory. Flipping the clamshell device open, you squint at your phone's screen.It's not Mami's reply. The number is the same one as the sender of that message where you were told to move on, to get on with your life.It reads:"Wake up."This is obviously some stupid joke. You're awake. Delete it and keep waiting.Try and call the number back, see who answers.
Might wanna make a new thread Deculture.
>>19581953[x]Try and call the number back, see who answers.Let's try to get some answers.
>>19581953>[x]Try and call the number back, see who answers.
>>19581961Nah, we've plenty of time yet.>>19581953>Try and call the number back, see who answers.
>>19581953>[X]Try and call the number back, see who answers.we are already asleep aren't we?
>>19581953[X] Call back.
Alright guys, be careful of raidah trying to ruin this thread. He already told us to do the pat-down, so we ought to watch out more for his raidah-isms.
So anyone find it suspicious that the Principal and the rape-victim were having sex?First she tells us that she has a great aversion to being touched, has trouble trusting people, etc and then they immediately start fucking. That's not right.She said that she hadn't even talked to her after the incident, so I find it hard to believe they managed to work it out in meantime and have the rap-victim be comfortable with intimacy, even with her best friend.
>>19582049It is possible that we've been caught in a Witch's Barrier or some similar effect, and that we are only experiencing a simulation where nothing is happening, while in reality the principal is being raped in front of us.
>>19582073As good players, we know it's a trap. We just rush in head first as always.
>>19582073Oh fuck. Oh FUCK.
>>19581953[x]Try and call the number back, see who answers.Why not, eh?
>>19582049My thoughts exactly as I was reading the thread...only found it a few minutes ago. Oh well.Call the number
>>19582073gem would've went off.
>>19582073gem would've went off
>>19582073That SOMEWHAT explains the "Wake up" message.How do we wake up?
>>19581978>>19582000>>19581992>>19582002Alright, you're not really digging the cryptic messages sent in a vaguely passive-aggressive ex-girlfriend/boyfriend/life partner way, so you call the sender back. You hold the device up to your ear, and immediately you hear ringing.One, twice, three times, and then it picks up.What you hear is...not what you expected. You hear someone, female, screaming for help. You hear laughing, high-pitched, shrill, each gasp of hilarity interlaced with unintelligible syllables. You hear gunshots in the background - lots of it, high caliber.A few moments, and the line goes dead.". . ." Well. That was strange.But not as strange as Takatsuki Yayoi, standing in front of you, wearing nothing but her birthday suit. Her eyes half-lidded, glazed over. She murmurs Iori's name, and all too suddenly, clambers onto your lap. Straddling your stocking-clad hips, pressing her body against yours.You're...not exactly sure how to deal with this right now.
>>19582119ffffffffffffffffffffffffffwe need to wake the fuck up or break the fuck out of this illusion!
>>19582119Ah shit we're gonna be accused of raping her...Um, try to guide her back to the bed?
>What you hear is...not what you expected. You hear someone, female, screaming for help. You hear laughing, high-pitched, shrill, each gasp of hilarity interlaced with unintelligible syllables. You hear gunshots in the background - lots of it, high caliber.Oh God, this is what is happening in the real word, isn't it?>>19582119Push her off and stand up
>>19582119PUSH THE FUCK BACK NOW
Pick her up off of you. Pur her on the bed then pinch yourself hard enough to draw blood.
>>19582119FUCK>>19582073 IS RIGHTWE NEED TO WAKE UPpush Yayoi off of us, stand up, and attempt to wake up. Punch ourself in the face.
>>19582137>>19582145What if this is the future?The high caliber firearms could be us.
>>19582119Timestop.You don't have to deal with Hallucinations doing that shit.
>>19582119Push her off. Shoot yourself in the foot. Try to break out of the dream world.
>>19582168If pinching doesn't work
Well, we could wake up the hard way. Pic very related.
>>19582119Hello. I'd say put her back in bed. If that's possible.
>>19582119HOLY FUCK! WHATS GOING ON!?
>>19582166What if we just fell asleep and all of this is just a dream and everything is fine in the real world.Everything's fine.Just fine.
>>19582167I agree. Timestop and check out if anything is off.We're overreacting. This is just a message from someone who sent some stupid text to us.Calm down and think.
>>19582210>>19582167But timestop means THAT thing.
>>19582119Pinch yourself in the cheek. Hard.
>>19582167Agree. Why aren't we abusing the fuck out of the most powerful ability ever?
>>19582210That was my first idea, but then, we NOIR.
>>19582119Time Stop. On the off chance that this is real, we can put Yayoi back in bed.And if it's not real, and we need to wake up, well, maybe our pink-haired hallucination has an answer.
>>19582219Better than lap dance with the witch-touched
>>19582219We can always ignore her/it.I suggest against pushing off Yayoi. Maybe just lifting her off and putting her on the bed.
>>19582234I'd be inclined to call her a "sleep-humping traumatized" girl rather than witch touched.
>>19582268Everyone is witch/witch-touched until we confirm otherwise.
Alright, I think this is a good place to hold. I'll start the new thread the same time over the weekend, I need to wake up in four hours.Thank you once again for participating.
>>19582308>good place to holdGod damn you and your cliffhangersAnyway, thanks for the quest. It was fun again.
>>19582308Damn you, leaving us on such a cliffhanger!
Is there an archive of these?
>>19582308>get back here and unfuck the situation!looking forward to the next instalment!
>>19582308God dammit.This is so much more exciting than my own quest.
>>19582323Well it works for fap angel, don't it?
>>19582337Deme takes us on a wild ride each quest.This is a little more serious.
>>19582308You're welcome. I really appreciate your threads, and I'm looking foward to the next part.
>>19582308Bum. Take care, then. See you next time.>>19582337Sure seems to.
Fun quest, Deculture.SoSee you next time, guys
>>19582337Man, I really need to catch up with SWQ. I stopped reading on 50th thread.
>>1958238950? That was back in March. You probably don't even know about the fucking _sidequests_.
someone who knows how should archive this.
>>19582308You are very good at stopping at the perfect point to drive people nuts.
>>19582396You mean 'tank witches' and 'submersible witches'? Or No'op quest?I saw them, decided to not read them till I catch up again.
>>19581878>finish watching the final episode of Stand Alone Complex>check if this thread has updated>that postWell I'm freaked out.
>>19582425>Not archiving on suptgdon't get me wrong, foolz is great and all but all quest threads should be archived on suptg
>>19582428TWQ and SuWQ, yeah. N'oo'p I guess technically is a sidequest, but that one is actually written by Deme and not someone else.
>>19582049I think it was more they were that close prior to the rape and this just pushed her further into it>>19582250Agreed, we have been enough of a cunt to her with no provocation. She isn't an annoying pocky consuming bitch or her psycho girlfriend who tried to ventilate our kidneys so gently put her back into bed with Iori and then go stab ourself in the leg or something so that we are sure we are awake
>>19582119That's what happened if we flipped out screamed at the apparition and shot at it I dare say
>>19582440>TWQ and SuWQAre these actually good? I wasn't planning on reading them. I can stretch my suspension of disbelief far enough to allow for magical girls to strap jet engines on their legs who use them instead of magic brooms but tank turrets and treads? Makes no sense to me at all.
>>19582537I'm biased as a judge of quality, but in SuWQ, they've yet to actually use the Substrikers for more than a few moments before getting fucked up hard by Martians. They're currently on their way to Brisbane after escaping, fending off Martian attacks on the flotilla that rescued them.As for TWQ, I don't read it, but it's currently in a crossover with SWQ, iirc. The PC in TWQ is Ian's mom, a vet of WWI. In SWQ, the PC recently rescued the TWQ unit or something.
>>19582537Someone asked that in SWQ recently. I believe the answer went something like:Short answer: No.Long answer: Not really, but it's better than the post-thread writefags.
>>19582537Well personally I like them enough to read themHaven't been on at the right times to participate but they aren't bad for passing the time in archivesBetter than seeing the same edition wars, erp complaints and people putting down others paint jobs that seem to be what most of the non quest content on tg still is
>>19582537>Makes no sense to me at all.It makes no sense that as soon as they developed a method where Witches could efficiently make magical shields on par with the personal force fields, that they would start using them as one-person tanks that can take more punishment than a Tiger?
>>19582537>planes strapped to their legs are fine>BUT TANK TREADS ARE TOO FUCKING FARSeriously? SERIOUSLY?
>>19582537I'm honestly surprised that they developed flying tech witches before ground tech witches.That is what happened, right?
>>19582537>tank legs make less sense them little girls with propeller legsI'll be back, I'm going to go hang myself
>>19582642>tonight's the nightWhat, we getting SWQ?
>>19582537Er, see Major Miles there? That's a tank witch. Nothing anymore crazy than the girls flying around with planelegs.
>>19582602Yeah, because strapping on propellers and giving them anti-tank weapons seems much smarter. I mean, they're still witches, why waste their talent keeping them grounded on the land when they could be used for more air superiority?They still have their shields while they are in air, and hell, enemy tanks wont be able to hit them anyway so I don't see why you guys are freaking out.>>19582614Hey, gotta have some standards, don't I?
>>19582659I think tank witches can carry bigger guns, operate longer, and have more ammunition.
>>19582653with the way planefag steals dates from me? I wouldn't be surprised
>>19582659I think it has something to do with the availability of strikersBut then that's shot down by them not wasting the time on tank treads and making more strikersI think it is mainly rule of cool but also there are times when tanks are more useful than planes. Probably because they can dig in better and use less magic to run for long periods of time
>>19582659>Anti-tank weaponsMan, the biggest gun a regular strike witch has ever had was a Boys AT, which was fucking useless for the majority of WWII because it couldn't penetrate anything bigger than a light tank. Other than that, the only time they could use something big was in a jet striker on a witch that had super-strength, and that still wasn't anywhere near practical.
>>19582689Just run them at the same time.Then feel bad as everyone's in SWQ.
>>19582659>why waste their talent keeping them grounded on the land when they could be used for more air superiority?Longer operational time, for one.Flying is a constant magic drain, while tank Striker operation is less of a drain, allowing more magic to be reserved for shield generation.
>>19582698Maybe I should, but then again, planefag don't care
>>19582732Planefag wants you to keep writing TWQ.
So, what if this entire thing is Homura hallucinating after having her heart torn out?
>>19582732Do it fagget
>>19582740Too deep for me.But I certainly would like to learn more about how this differs from Madoka Proper
>>19582740A very real possibilityOur hallucination is actually taunting us and the messages are our friends trying to get us to wake up and not die
>>19582740So begins our quest to recover our heart.(We used our soul gem as a temporary replacement. Each "beat" corrupts it further.)
>>19582740What if this thing is Homura hallucinating while Iori and Yayoi are being raped?
>>19582747Gritty noir versions of puella magi and a lack of a certain pink haired moe blob seem to be the two big things I have see
>>19582739Well love, I'm not dead yet, and I'm writing my prequest right now, but enough of fagging this thread, off to write!
>>19582776Oh, that would be part of it, certainly. Only it's Chiaki at this point.
What if the whole thing is what would have happened if we had started shooting the Madoka hallucination?
>>19582807Which "whole" thing? The entire quest? That'd be some nutty recursion there.
>>19582827Shit. I meant the phone message.
>>19582681>>19582695>>19582707Okay. But I still don't see the need to the fucking tank treads.I mean, look at it >>19582642Why does she even have them!? It looks like a massive dead weight than anything more. She certainly doesn't NEED them to move and they shouldn't make her faster. heck, putting her on a jeep for mobility would be far better.Fuck me, actually, I STILL don't understand the need for them. Everything you just listed can be easily replaced by a tank or an anti-tank infantry.Flying, magical bitches with weapons still kinda makes sense.
>>19582841Yeah that's what I thought here >>19582469Mainly the "high caliber" part since our hand cannon fit the bill
>>19582918They can actually use the treads to reach some really fast fucking speeds.And they _are_ anti-tank infantry. You're also overestimating the speed and maneuverability of WWII Heavy Tanks.
>>19582918So it is recognizable as the same core series probablyOr from a technical standpoint the strikers etc are all focii for their magic so that they can use it much more effectively
>>19582918Having shields that can regenerate unlike armor of a tank? Being able to traverse all terrain like a tank and being able to go up and down slopes better, or god forbid urban terrain? They also carry the same armament as the tank their striker is a model of. You also need a fraction of the money to make a stiker then you do to make a 40 ton tank
>>19582986>thenI'd accuse you of being Panzer, but you're typing otherwise very well.( ≖‿≖)
>>19582918To put it bluntlyIt's magic they don't have to explain shitLittle girls with no pants and big guns the anime does not expect you to think beyond the "hey panties" stage of things
>>19582918For one, the treads are part of the Tank Striker, and that's where the magical focus is located. It's also what allows the Tank Witch to reach speeds impossible for a tank of the time period.Putting a Tank Witch on a jeep wouldn't improve her mobility at all, and only presents a bigger target.As for being replaced by a tank or anti-tank infantry, the Tank Witch has better mobility, speed, and regenerating shields that a tank does not. She also has heavier weapons, greater speed (unless the anti-tank infantry is mounted), greater mobility (because she's still more maneuverable than any other vehicle that the infantry could be mounted on), has a magical forcefield, and carries a bigger weapon.
>>19582918For the tank aesthetic. They still "fly" even with tank strikers, just a few inches off the ground generally.
>>19583000To be honest English is a cunt of a language anywayI learnt it as a first language and I have learnt five languages throughout my life including mandarin (Chinese) and even that was shitloads easier than my native tongue
>>19582986>You also need a fraction of the money to make a stiker then you do to make a 40 ton tankYou only have handful of witches. You can train tank operators from normal humans.I always thought that war-planes>tanks, why waste such a valuable asset by putting it into inferior role?>>19583023Yes, and I already said that I can let that shit slide in Strike Witches.But these are both in the same setting, that's why I'm confused.If Tank witches were from another setting where they don't have strike technology, it might make sense.
>>19583063We still have tanks and AFVs even today.Combined arms are always more effective than relying on a single weapon technology.
>>19583052>>19583053>For the tank aesthetic. They still "fly" even with tank strikers, just a few inches off the ground generally.Oh... I thought they get on their knees and roll which would look really stupid.Okay, that makes a bit more sense.
>>19583063Planes are terrible at anything but hit and run against ground targetsThey needed something more than just Planes so they creates the tank witches. They are still as valuable but useful in a different area.You can't win a war with just one type of weapon
>>19583063>>19583073>>19583092And here's an early counterpoint to the greater maneuverability of Strike Witches to modern aircraft.They can't loiter for long. They burn through a shitload of magic when they fly around.
>>19583076They kinda skate around on the legs, kinda like tribes if you will, generating a frictionless field If my witch-lore is correct
>>19583092What if all you have are nucular boms, with proper delivery systems, and the opponent doesn't?
>>19583073>>19583092>>19583100I... see.Alright. Guess tank witches are not weirder than strike witches then.>>19583103>skate around on the legs, kinda like tribesOkay, now you made them sound much more awesome
>>19583104Good if all you want is a smoking hole in then ground and your opponent is on another continentIf you want to claim territory or they are in the range to come stab you in the face and take your nuclear toys then you are screwed
>>19583104What if Witches are the only way to deflect and protect against nukes?We can talk _other_ imaginary scenarios all day, but in SW and SWQ, there aren't any nukes.
>>19583122I'd just like to point out that>nucular bomsis jokes. Stupid jokes, but jokes.
What if Homura and the witch that ripped out her heart managed to kill each other and 'Chiaki', the intact Soul Gem of a long dead magical girl Homura happened to have on her, took over her body?By Homura dying, I mean that her Soul Gem was destroyed, but there was enough left of her body for 'Chiaki' to repair it.The shock of taking over Homura's body made her amnesiac and, through flesh memories, she remembers Homura's final moments.
>>19583287Didn't Kazumi explore the relationship between soul gems and bodies?
>>19583122Perhaps if you grouped every single Witch on Earth to make that shield. And you would lose all of them, either by depleting all of their magic or by actual death.Then you simply toss another...
To whoever now archives the threads, thank you anon for preserving the drunk/sober and amnesiac part of the blurb.
>>19583320I think it did. Not reading Kazumi, but what I understand about the system from that is that the Soul Gem is the pilot and the body the vehicle. Nothing prevents the pilot from just switching over.
>>19582308>Alright, I think this is a good place to hold.I hate you.Looking forward to the next episode.
>>19583350I think there was a magical girl with two soul gems, one body.
I would like to thanks op. That's an awesome quest, and you're an awesome OP.
