You are a Magical Girl, and you are certainly not on the long, slow, downward spiral into slavering madness.Well, no. You're not really sure about that.Your current assignment, picked from a choice of two, is to send a fellow Magical Girl into the great Deli Heal Agency in the sky. It's nothing personal, but you know the target well enough that it very well could get to that point. Your employer has simply decided that she has become more trouble than she's worth - a unfortunate and regretful liability that must be dealt in the quickest way possible to preserve inter-client relations and revenue stream integrity in a going-forward paradigm.It's not the killing that leaves a bad taste in your mouth. It's the fact that you have to.You are in your apartment, with a former client still snoozing in your futon behind you. You're currently sitting in your new favorite chair, and you're planning about how to kill Kirika Kure.In a move typical of the cunning little rat, Kyuubey has sent Kirika on a dummy assignment, to take place around nine hours from now, night time. A straight assassination mission involving some forgettable politician, on the Helipad of Mitakihara Tower One. You've entertained the idea of rigging the entire helipad with explosives and sniping her from a neighboring skyscraper, but a call to Sakura Kyoko is making you second-guess that plan.Namely, the fact about her having gone somewhat rogue after getting a mysterious gold-bladed katana. Similar to the golden Desert Eagle a certain pink-haired nightmare had given you.You examine the gun itself in your hands, turning it around, looking for cursed symbols or rot like that. It weighs like a typical gun of its make, it doesn't necessarily shoot more accurately or harder than a regular version Desert Eagle. It certainly doesn't have unlimited ammunition, which you feel would be handy.What do you do?
>>19693145Fuck this noise, call Stabby, state that we heard she had a gold katana and were wondering if she acquired it the same way we got our shiny new gold DEagle.
>>19693207She probably wouldn't answer a call from us.Or even worse she would be tipped off that kyuubey is out for her.If we want to talk to her then we need something in the way of her stabbing us like having her friend hostage or blowing all her limbs off
>>19693145Call Sayaka, act dumb and ask her if she knows anything about how Kirika has acted lately and any weaknesses
>>19693207You decide to call Kirika Kure. It's not your worst idea ever - calling up not only someone you've had a lot of enmity with, but also someone you've been appointed to put down - but it's certainly up there. You get her number from Mami through a text message, with her slightly puzzled as to why you would want to talk to someone like Kirika. You leave the question unanswered, and you dial the target's number digit by digit.You initiate the call, and it takes Kirika three rings before she picks up."Kirika Kure. Who is this?" Your target's is silky-smooth, properly pronounced, with a bit of purr at the end. You've forgotten that, all told, Kirika has a very nice voice, the type you'd want to hear welcoming you back home and insisting that bed should be the next immediate item on the itinerary. You don't forget, of course, that she has an almost fetish-like penchant of ripping open her target's stomach and watching their intestines flop out."Hello?" She tries again. "If this is a prank call, remember that there exists phone tracking technology, and I will triangulate your position and kill you in your sleep."Lovely. How do you proceed with your call?Introduce yourself, and ask about her golden katana.End the call, proceed as originally planned.
>>19693399Introduce ourself.Mention the katana and that we have a deagle much the same and see if we can compare notes on a certain pink haired nightmare
>>19693399[x]Introduce yourself, and ask about her golden katana.If she seems reluctant to discuss it (which she will be) bring up the gold DEagle. She'll put together the same pair of twos that we did.
>4 am>f5 /tg/ catalog one last time before bed>MGNQ pops upSLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK.
>>19693399[x]Introduce yourself, and ask about her golden katana.Dammit, we shouldn't have done this with our own phone, it should have been done by a burner somewhere other than our apartment.
>>19693399Are we really really really sure we want to do this ? But as we already are doing this call, I don't know what to do.
>>19693424>>19693414You clear your throat and keep your voice low as you introduce yourself. "Chiaki Matsuda...? I'm afraid I don't..." Kirika pauses for a moment, seemingly confused, before laughing softly. "Oh. Wait. I recognize your voice. The damage to your voice with all that drinking and smoking makes you unmistakable, Murderface. You should really do away with those dreadful habits of yours, they're not doing you any favors."...This is surprising too. You're actually carrying on a normal-sounding conversation with a known mass murderer. You're not sure, but you certainly don't hear the same amount of vitriol and layer-thick venom in her voice that you usually hear. You thank her for her concern, and go right to the point - about her new little golden toy she's been shanking people with."...You mean Muramasa? I'm surprised you've been sober enough to actually see and remember it, Murderface. Yes, it's quite the fine blade, isn't it? The gold is a bit too gaudy or me, but it's got an exquisitely sharp edge that doesn't seem to dull no matter what I cut. I even managed to cut through a European broadsword with it, like butter with a warm knife. Can you believe it?"Ah, there it was. That none-too-subtle dig. Fine, very funny. You ignore it, and ask about where she got it."...Before I answer that question, I must ask about this sudden interest in my worktools. I'd have expected this call from Sayaka, or that one-eyed idiot that keeps bumbling about with her spear - but I certainly wouldn't have expected it from someone who ascribes to such a cowardly, impersonal way of combat." Now you're reminded why you hate her again. How do you reply?
>>19693576I noticed you just seemed to get it recently and I have had a similar experience.I recently got a golden pistol that while it is not outright magical is very effective and very well made.May in ask, have you noticed anything strange when using your powers? Like a pink haired girl appearing
>>19693600Bland, rough, without an ounce of subtility.I like this.
>>19693576"I noticed because it appears we might have the same supplier. I myself recently came into possession of a gold Desert Eagle pistol. "Did she tell you that others would be receiving her little favors?"
>>19693600SecondingOH, and describe the technical details of the DEagle in minute detail. Like, caliber, production history, stopping power, range, firerate. Just to spite her a bit.
>>19693613Mention it literally blew someone's legs off would about fit
>>19693145fuck thatBlow the bitch sky high and snipe what's left. Kill all the crazy before it spreads
>>19693613>>19693600Your jimmies certainly aren't that rustled, but that doesn't certainly close the option of you rustling hers in return for her attempt. It's then that you talk about getting your own golden weapon, a fine specimen of the Magnum Research Mark XIX Desert Eagle. You talk briefly about its specifications, how good it feels in your hand, and how you think you could accurately put one of its .50 Action Express rounds into the ass of a flea from 200 meters away. You could hear her growling underneath her breath and trying to interrupt you after every paragraph or so, but you gamely forge on, cutting her off and continuing in your tirade.It's only after you mention a certain pink-haired girl with black eyes that she falls silent. After a few moments, she speaks again."I don't feel comfortable talking about her over the phone, Murderface. Tell you what - there's a bar that serves Chang'aa at this time of day, downtown. Yakuza bar by the name of Tatsumi's, but it's decent. I'll meet you there in one hour."There's a click as the connection goes dead.Apparently, Kirika had just asked you out on a date. You know where the bar is, of course. You've tried to drink yourself stupid there before.What do you do?
>>19693678ditch, blow the bitch sky highTalking with crazies isn't going to help us and meeting the swordwoman/cqc master face to face is not conductive to living
>>19693678That's either a perfectly valid request to exchange informations, or a deadly trap.That's could be both.We go with a good number of preparation. Weapons, searching for traps, etc.
>>19693678Call up Mami, first. Ask her to take care of Iori in case something ever happens to us.Take the Golden DEagle, and get down to the bar early. Try to case the place, as much as a teenage girl can case a Yakuza bar.
>>19693678Go in armed to the teeth. Anything easily concealed that packs a punch. Perhaps something in .45 ACP such as a Tommy gun? Or an Obrez. Nothing says Punch like a bolt action handgun that spits out 10 feet of flame and a 7.62x54r bullet each shot. Go in, get the info, keep heavily armed, go out. Then kill her afterwards, fufill the contract. Don't do anything stupid like give her "fair warning", she'd likely try to fight then and there at close quarters.Also, finally managed to be on in time for this. (Been reading the archives. Good stuff.)
>>19693678Sounds like we go to the bar. Be carefull though. Really careful. We might try to get a small, concealable weapon out of our shield to be armed if she tries to fuck with us.Also call Mami and make her promise to look after Iori if you dont come back from this mission.>>19693690Disregard that, we can still kill her afterwards. If she doesn't kill us first.
>>19693710Disregard this, this guy just wants to die.Talking with people who draw the oink hair girl in is a terrible idea. especially melee ones in a small room.20mm sniper rifle from the farthest skyscraper possible
>>19693678Go have the chat. I see no reason to not be unobtrusively armed, of course if we're in uniform that won't be anything like a problem.
>>19693678Go chat, have our golden deagle since she will be carrying muramasaJust talk about our encounters with pinky and leave, we don't make any hostile moves if she doesn't
>>19693727We will kill her with an Anzio 20 later (make sure to acquire some FAP rounds, they penetrate and violently fragment inside the target)But now we shall drink with her first, for the sake of information that could prevent our own corruption.
>>19693803I say putting two people the pink hair girl is stalking in the same room is a bad idea.It's like making a buffet of corruptible magic girls.
>>19693704You glance at the phone in your hand, then at the golden Desert Eagle in your lap - before you sigh and finally make your decision. This is not how you originally planned to go about with retiring her, but certain developments did come to play that convinced you that this wasn't going to be as simple as waiting in a skyscraper rooftop and pulling the trigger as soon as you had the target in your sights.Nothing is ever that simple, although you wish they could be.Levering yourself off of your favorite chair, you immediately call Mami up. She already seems to be up and about, and you hear the voices of children calling her name and generally being kids. You've apparently called her in the middle of her part-time job as a daycare center teacher. You apologize quickly, and tell her about where you're going, and you'll need someone to tag in to watch Iori while you're gone."Yes, I'll send Kyoko-chan right over. I'll join her as soon as I'm done with my shift. But...is it really wise, Chiaki-san? You're not exactly at talking terms with Kirika-san..."You assure her that it's okay. Still, just in case, you make her promise to take care of Iori should anything happen to you."Don't say such scary things, Chiaki-san. Whatever it is, you'll pull through. But...I promise."
>>19693816Our corruption has already started. There is nothing to lose, everything to gain.
>>19693820You thank her and end the call right away. Glancing at Iori, you step towards the window of your apartment as you toss your cellphone onto the seat of your vacated chair - and it's then that you transform, your soul gem sparking into life onto the back of your right hand, a purple diamond gilded in bronze.The entire apartment rumbles slightly as brief flashes of light explode on your form, your costume manifesting directly onto your body. The familiar weight of your shield a heavy, reassuring presence on your right arm.The costume's clean and new, just like how it is with every transformation. You wince and fidget a bit - the damn pantyhose that comes with the entire outfit hitching just a bit too high for comfort.You stash the Desert Eagle and an extra magazine into your inventory. You figure that if things were to turn badly, you could rely on the shield giving you something useful.You decide that you're well and ready, and make to leave the apartment - when you hear something that you thought you'd never hear in your lifetime."Chiaki-san? Where are you going?"Iori's woken up, it seems. You turn around and stand awkwardly in your magical girl costume as the idol sits up, clutching the futon covers up to her chest."O-oh. It's that time already? You have to go to work?" She looks around. "Have...have you had breakfast already? I can cook you something..."How do you reply? You're on the clock, here.
>>19693842"I did. Running late as is. Please remain in the apartment. Make yourself something to eat."
>>19693842"Sorry, I'm running late as it is. Maybe tomorrow."
>>19693842Apologise, say your mission's been pushed forward. Mami should have stocked up the fridge with pancakes-in-waiting, and if she hasn't someone will be here soon to look after her.Then ruffle her hair and head out.
>>19693820[spoiler]don't kill us kind quest master[/spoiler]>>19693831yeah, she's working both of us. Doesn't mean we have to help her by making a buffet.I just looked up the Anzio, holy shit can you say overkill. 7 foot long rifle.>>19693842kindly let her downoffer her the pancakes if we didn't scarf all of them downtake a case of grenades before we go
>>19693853That. Maybe add that a ... comrade of yours is going to come to watch over her. And, if Kyoko is who i think she is (the one eyed one?), warn her not to do anything naughty. If Kyoko is someone else, disregard this.
>>19693873One case is not enough. Take a bottle of whiskey onthe trip to the bar. About Iori, put to sleep.
>>19693885Yeah, about this whiskey, don't drink it. Don't drink alcohols when you're life is on the line because you're coming close of a close-quarter brute killer.
>>19693842I have to go out and meet another agent of QB's. I will be back before too long but Kyoko will come over to keep you company for now.I ate some breakfast already and there should be some in the fridge for you if you feel like cooking.
>>19693918...but it's perfectly acceptable cause to..to..to... drink!
>>19693873 >>19693863 >>19693853 >>19693880You say that you've already had breakfast, and if she's hungry, she can either see what Mami left in the fridge or have the agent that's coming along in a few moments to get her something to eat while she's en route. You give her Kyoko's number, partly because you don't want her to leave the apartment to get something to eat, and partly because you're amused of making a delivery girl out of your one-eyed comrade."Ah. Alright. Thank you, Chiaki-san." She smiles at you, seemingly grateful that you seem to know what you're doing. "You will be coming home later tonight, right...? I mean, what you're doing right now, it's not that dangerous...?"She asks you this as you remember to grab some grenades from the case you've stashed at the far corner of the room. You look back at her as you stuff four of the pineapples into your inventory, her eyes widening in concern at the sight of such explosives.How do you reply? Do you lie to her, or tell the truth?
>>19693940I will definitely be coming home later on tonight, I'm not going out to do anything dangerous yet but my job tonight is a dangerous oneIt's nothing I can't handle thoughIf we tell her the truth she might do something stupid like try and follow us
.... would this even fit in the shield?>>19693940Half-lieabout as dangerous as guarding her was, but we won that one
>>19693940"We're just talking to someone, so don't worry, we'll come back with all of our limbs."
>>19693940Deadpan. "There is a slight chance, however very small, that I will in fact, return alive. In this uncommon and exceptionnal circonstance, I would like you to stay calm. Thank you."
>>19693873>overkill noAlso other ideas for weapons, including prototypes>H&R SPIW (Basically a larger, flechette firing OICW)>TKB-059 (3 Barrels o' fun!)>76mm HIWS (Shoulder fired mortar.

(mumbling: "somehow...")
>>19693940"Course its dangerous. I told you, i'm Kyuubeis Brute Squad. Everything i do is dangerous."Give her a mad smile."Of course, i am more dangerous than just about everything out there, so you certainly dont have to worry."She'll find out about what we do anyways, no need to hide it from her.
>>19693576>You're actually carrying on a normal-sounding conversation with a known mass murderer.What's the big deal? Most of your friends do that on regular basis.
"Brute squad. I'm were the killings to be done. Always."We should look a bit.. sad(?), disgusted(?) while saying it.
My God. Is this Madokafaggotry quest still going?Many threads are accused of being cancer. This is like herpes. Unsightly, yet ultimately manageable. It won't kill you, but spreads like wildfire and comes back regularly.We need Valtrex.
>>19693993>Many threads are accused of being cancer. This is like herpes.What's MSQ, then?
>>19693989Jesus... even the original Brute Squad didn't speak that poorly. André René Roussimoff would slap your shit for talking like that.
>>19694003What original brute squad? There's nothing original about being the muscle of an organisation. We are also anti-social so cutting out words to minimise conversation is in-character.
>>19693972This is a good point.We don't flip out and kill people randomly though, we have a reason for each person we kill
>>19693993This quest has thus far been awesome. Don't hate on it just because you dont like the original series.I think we were getting a bit too nice lately, but otherwise this is really one of the best quests running at the moment, considering writing quality and storyline.
>>19693993This is a different one from Magia revolution.This is more "fuck sparkles we want proper noir" magical girls
>>19694015It's not that you cut out words, you cut out letters that make the sentence make sense, h in this case. Also, no one else held "The Brute Squad" as a title before Fezzik.
>>19694018Well we aren't being overall nice but we are being nice to Iori because we have to put up with her and it would be like kicking a puppyAnd Mami we are nice enough to siimply because you do not be a bitch to herKyoko and Kirika admittedly deserve bitchiness but the first one is being nice to us and the second quite possibly has important information for us
>>19694027Oh shit. I did! Time to hand in my Grammar Nazi badge.
>>19693998MSQ is probably more like fecal incontinence or amoebic dysentery, since it sprays shit all over an otherwise nice place.
>>19694030thisbe nice to lolisbitch out our coworkersbeg Mami to cook more pancakes.
>>19694034Don't forget throwing our boss out windows, we still owe him fort the comment
>>19694033Except it keeps to itself unlike half the other threads on here.It is more like aids. It is there, you can't seem to do anything about it and it will slowly kill you
>>19693967 >>19693959 >>19693951You're not too sure how to proceed with such a line of questioning. You've never really considered if a certain situation you've been sent into is more dangerous than the other - you tend to deal with things as they go along. It certainly won't be any picnic, and meeting Kirika in a yakuza bar certainly won't be comparable to frolicking in a field of daisies - but you're confident enough with your abilities and considerate enough to be the least bit optimistic with your reply.You tell her that you'll simply be meeting up with a co-worker to talk about certain work-related things, and that you're pretty sure you'll be coming home later that night, or perhaps early morning the next day. Iori is still concerned, but she seems to be convinced, and asks you to take care.You briefly wonder about this treatment you're getting from the idol. It's a bit strange, isn't it? She's only met you for barely a day or so, maybe two if you consider yesterday. You shrug at this and leave, telling her to lock the door behind you and only open it for Kyoko. You catch a cab going to Tatsumi's - you're not too big on public transportation that doesn't let you smoke while you travel. You don't mind paying extra.The driver drops you off directly in front of the bar. It's a small place, not that glitzy as compared to the other bars you know yakuza frequent. You step inside, and the bartender gruffly greets you. It being barely noon, there are only a handful of people inside, typical yakuza in their loud shirts and talking in equally loud, belligerent tones.You sit in the bar and very nearly order a double whiskey. You remind yourself that you have to be sober for this.You order a cold glass of soda instead. What do you do? It'll be twenty minutes before Kirika arrives.
>>19694050Look around for anything too conspicuous either by it's absence or presence. Kirika may have a reason for calling us down here. Find a booth to sit so we can watch the door as well
>>19693940We'll need more than frag grenades to do the trick.Pack a couple of WP (white phosphorous) grenades if available. Pack an folding stock Saiga-12, with an attached light, spare 20rd mags, alternating high-power slugs and buck. Put these in a case or in the shield for easy retreival. We're looking to shred flesh, not penetration.Keep a few flashbangs in reserve. Bring smoke grenades if we have NVGs, we can see through the smoke with the NVGs.Strap 2 Glock 20's to our body, to be quickly drawn. 10mm hollowpoints are alright until we can grab the shotgun. Strap a flashbang and an Obrez on us, use for distraction. Wear a jacket or something.Don't fucking use the golden gun too much, it could be carrying some magical curse or something.Make sure we have free flow of automatic weapons from the shield.For sniping, see if we have an semi-auto rifle in .50bmg or larger in the shield. Gepard GM-6 Lynx is preferred; otherwise use bear-stopping bolt-action rifles.
>>19694056This. Watch the patrons, too.
>>19694058Ah, shit. Too laaaaaaaaate.
>>19694050find an open area to sit in, we don't want to be confined in a booth with the melee magic girl. have a path to get the fuck out if things go downsee if anyone is watching us a bit too muchdrink the sprite
>>19694058>>19693993This thread is /k/ now.Otherwise i agree with>>19694059>>19694056Also, try to talk with the patrons. Mention Kirika, watch their reactions. Are they friendly? then we might need to pull out.
>>19694050>>19694056>>19694059Seconded. And remember about any possible connection between Kirika and the yakuza. An old assignment, maybe ? Maybe they are indebted to her ?
>>19694059Yep. Memorise the floor plan, the exits and places of cover, have plan to kill everyone in the room. Or run away, if that's the case.Don't sit where your back can be stabbed through the wall.
>>19694050Sit at a table that lets us watch the door while leaving some space behind. Don't take a booth or bar seat.
It's not about the gun. It's about the one holding it. Both Zajcev and "White Death" Hayha enstablished their legends with standard issue weaponry.
>>19694050Find a quiet corner to sit, if we brought explosives have them ready to go off where Kirika is going to sit. Have an array of weapons prepared to kill her off with.Pay close attention to the patrons, see if any are paying undue attention to us.
>>19694058I agree with the not using the Deagle. Better throw the Glocks at the enemy though, trololo
>>19694109Looks like we went nighttime/k/ now.
>>19694117This is way older than the nighttime newfags, kid.
>>19694100We're in a small bar with Yakuza, facing a melee lich with a magic sword, and Pinky shows up whenever we try to stop time.Zajcev and Hayha would ask to switch their rifle with a Flak 88 and 5 kilometres of breathing space.
>>19694127shoulder mounted 8.8 cm KwK 36 L/56Only the finest for /tg/
>>19694127And since we're not either of those two heroes, we need more firepower. Can't we just spawn a Maus superheavy while we're at it? The 88 Flakzwilling variant.
>>19694086>>19694056The bartender seems confused about your choice of drink, but you find it in front of you nonetheless. You nod at the man, before casually giving the place a once-over.There are six people in Tatsumi's besides you and the bartender. Three are sitting in one booth, two in another, and one on a bar seat, approximately four seats away from you to your left. There's a fire exit at the far corner of the bar, and the door that leads probably to the bar's kitchen or whatever they have behind the wall of liquor bottles. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be much that's off here.Talking with the yakuza here is probably a bad idea. The three seem to be arguing heatedly about a gambling debt, the second group playing cards, and the guy at the bar with you seems to be busy crying into his beer. You doubt Kirika takes assignments or deals with these sort of people.You however ask the bartender about Kirika, and he nods, recognizing the name."Cute classy girl with the violet eyes? Yeah, she comes around here often. Orders changaa each time. Sophisticated girl like her, I don't know why she wastes her time here." He shrugs as he cleans a glass. "She's alright, except for that sword she keeps on her wherever she goes. I bet it's to stop these yaks from hitting on her. Happens a lot."Yeah. That's her, alright.
>>19694147We aren't entirely sure what we can pull out of our shield as needed.Deculture made a reference to us pulling a bolter out of it in the past
>>19694147We don't spawn weapons. We only store weapons for them to be used later. We have already stored a good number of weapons, some of them we don't remember of, but that's all.
>>19694150You sip at your soda again when it's then that your shield clicks faintly. Not loud enough for everyone to hear, but it's certainly audible. You glance at it for a moment, before turning back - and it's then that you see Kirika, sitting on the stool next to yours, where she hadn't been a moment ago. Looking as if she'd been there the entire time, leaning forward, her elbows on the bartop. She's wearing casual clothes, you note, and her sword is hanging from a belt loosely tied around her waist."Tatsumi-san. My usual, please." She purrs at the bartender, who nods and gets her drink - a tall glass of an evil-smelling liquid that reminds you of jet fuel and nightmares."You've got some nerve, really, Murderface, but I suppose that's your one redeeming quality." She says, smiling, but not looking at you. "Now, while we're still being nice to each other, let's cut to the quick. What do you know of the pink-haired girl with the black eyes? Add to that, how did you meet her?"How do you respond to this?
Wait, I just realised. This bitch is FAST. She also has a katana. She WILL be splitting bullets in half. We NEED explosive payloads.protip, the sparks from cutting a grenade in half will set off the explosive charge. Reqisitioning high-explosive fragmenting incendiary ammunition. If we want to have any chance of hitting in the first place, it also needs to be a supersonic projectile, so no 40 mike mike 'nade launchers.
>>19694157She approached me while I was doing my best to kill myself with whiskey.You?
>>19694150Let's have a glass of whatever she's usually drinking.Actually, make it two. If we are lucky with the timing, she'll come right for the cheers.
>>19694153>>19694163>stormbolterwhy aren't we using one?>>19694163this is why I didn't want to meet her, but blow her up>>19694157this >>19694164
>>19694157"I didn't meet her. She found me. Is that an acquaintance of yours ? What did she want ?"Saying less is better.
>>19694157Yeah, this >>19694164 is just about perfect.
>>19694155>>19694153I see. Trip to Russia's Kubinka Tank Museum then. Srsly though, we need to put the full capabilities of this shield to the test sometime.
>>19694163Murderface is also FAST. And the bitch certainly can't cut all the bullets we're gonna feed her when the time comes.But let's be friendly now.
>>19694163She is fast but we are faster. She has time dilation where we have time stopBoth our powers carry the risk of running into Pinky however
>>19694184We are probably limited to whatever is carry able by us.>>19694170It was mentioned we don't exactly control what we pull out just that once something is in there we can pull it out at a later date
>>19694193>>19694191Don't tell me I didn't warn you.
>>19694163> the sparks from cutting a grenade in half will set off the explosive charge.Sparks might set off the fuse, but won't set off the main explosive filler. I have no idea if there would be sparks from cutting grenades anyway.I think she probably has some variant of time-stop as we do. Shit.Does nothing to WP or flammable liquids and little to buckshot (9-12 bits of lead) though.>>19694153> Homu visited 40k before to collect the bolter.What.
>>19694202Your warning was noted but first we need to have our chat which won't be including any hostility from our side and then setting up to fight her from a position that suits us if we don't end up working with her thanks to the mutual bond of Pinky deciding we are fun to hang around
>>19694212Of course. A clear cut case of being polite, professional, and being prepared to kill everyone we meet.
>>19694205Her dossier mentioned she uses time dilation instead of time stop.She is fast without using it but combining her speed and her time skills it makes it look like she has time stop
>>19694201In the original series Homura stuffed a ship into her shield.
>>19694201Canonically, she carried hundreds of missile launcher once, with a full tanker. I think we can safely say she can carries a lot.
>>19694216Exactly. We aren't here to start a fight or tip our hand, she has information useful to us and we to her
>>19694222>>19694221Ok then let's go check that tank museum out.Or maybe go loot a military base for some Abrams MBT's or something
>>19694212I think it might be more important to figure out if Pinky is going around freaking out other magical girls. That would be the sort of thing we need to tell the mutant cat about.He might even let the stabby one off the hook (for a while)!
>>19694233>>19694184And what would we do with those tanks? Drop them on our enemies? Not like we could serve them alone.
>>19694233Think larger. In the original series, Homu couldn't stop the final witch.We need nukes. Every single nuke on the planet. All the nukes.If that don't work, we drop the moon.
>>19694164"Ah. I see. A pity you didn't succeed in doing so, but we can't have everything." She sips her awful-smelling drink delicately, as if it's the finest wine and she's drinking from one of those classy snifters. "Well, it's strange, but I met her the same way. Here, in this bar, while I was having my nightly restorative." She slides the tip of a finger on the rim of her glass, deep in thought. "Eerily beautiful, except for those eyes of hers. I admit I was taken by her a bit. She smells quite nice, too." She takes another sip of her drink. "She knew my name right off. I tried asking for hers, but she never did give it. She said it was of no consequence." Kirika glances your way, before patting the sword at her side. "She gave me Muramasa after that, and disappeared, just like a ghost. She appears from time to time, and we talk a fair bit."Well. It's a bit heartening to know that you're not crazy. That someone else is being pestered by the pink-haired bitch."Your firearm," Kirika suddenly says, the word making her frown. "May I see it? I'd like to find out if it is the same kind of gold that Muramasa has. If what you're saying is true, then they should be somewhat similar."What do you do?
>>19694247>Maus>188 tons>drop on the enemyyou know, that's actually a pretty good idea.
>>19694233they drive working Tigers in Germanylet's take the 8.8 cm KwK 36 from that>>19694247it's magic man, we don't gotta explain shit>>19694250we're not handing the gun over, but she can see it. she has magic claws, so asking to see her sword wouldn't disarm her either
>>19694250Hand it to her empty.Ask if we can examine muramasa while she does to see if we can find any similar markings anywhere
>>19694250Make a show of unloading it, then hand it over. And keep our timestop warmed up in case she decides to flip out.
>>19694269Afaik the only functional Tiger is number 131 in Bovington. Please prove me wrong, for the love of the Omnissiah.>>19694268>>19694263This
>>19694250IIRC if we hold onto someone while activating time-stop, the other person get's pulled into it as well. So just grab Kirika's hand (preferably with her permission so she doesn't resist) and time-stop. Pinky should be there and we could have some questions answered.I mean - what's the worst thing that could happen?
>>19694250What we also should tell her, is that we suspect that pinkie has something to do with our time related abilities. No other magical girl has such a weapon as far as we know.Only the two time warpers.And ask her if she sees pinkie if she uses her ability.
>>19694283Well so far Pinky hasnt actually been violent towards us.She has mentioned killing us and seemed to like the idea but she hasn't made a move to do so other than when she woke us up which was at our request
>>19694283>pull Kirika into timestop>throw away our ONLY advantageUh huh. How about we don't do that.
>>196942951) can let go of her at any point and she will be back into the usual flow2) we are not trying to kill each other as of yet
>>19694273it seems I lied sir, I apologize.I want to see the one in angleland so badly.
>>19694269>>19694268Handing over your firearm to the Magical Girl you're supposed to kill. You're on a roll, yes you are. Bad Idea Train, Choo Choo, the last stop is you being lowered to the ground while Iori cries and Kyoko lays claim to all of your alcohol.You pull the golden Desert Eagle surreptitiously out from your inventory so as not to alarm anyone - the bartender casting you a wary eye but not saying anything about it - and you slide out the magazine, placing it on the bar a slight distance away from Kirika's reach. You pull the slide back, the chambered round flying out (which you immediately catch). You pass the now empty gun to Kirika, who receives it with a surprising amount of reverence and a not-so-surprising amount of disgust."Hnh. The tone and texture is certainly similar, and the lustre is definitely the same." It's then that she dips a finger into her drink and rubs the bit of alcohol into that engraved logo on the center of the grip. You smell something burning - and it's as Kirika wipes off the residue that you see a completely new symbol underneath the previous one, carved into the metal.The roman numeral VIII. Eight.Immediately, Kirika seems to change subtly at this discovery. A small sad smile on her face, as if disappointed at what had just been confirmed. At the same time, the tension between the two of you feels as if it's increased, somehow. Like something about to happen.
>>19694375"One and the same, then. Muramasa has the same kind of symbol, although a different number." She gives you back the pistol before pulling up her own sword, thumbing the guard and unsheathing the weapon the smallest bit - and you could see 'XX' hewn into the brilliant golden blade.That's certainly strange. But how did she find out, you ask?"The girl with the sunless eyes told me," Kirika murmurs, sipping her drink again. "She also told me that someone with a golden gun bearing the number VIII will be the one to kill me. Coincidentally, the gun you've just shown me has the same exact characteristics."She continues to sip her drink, calmly."The idea of you killing me, however, is laughable. I can't even contemplate it happening in any universe or timeline, with any amount of probability."It's to note here that she has one hand on her sword, and the other on her drink.How do you react?
>>19694380Who says I'll still be alive when you are killed by the one holding this weapon?
I would say timestop. It's our only advantage.Even with her time dillution she will be like a fly in honeyjar - sllllloooooow.Also, load our Deagle.
>>19694380Stay calm."As much as we have our differences, I'm not about to go rogue and start killing co-workers. "So, did Pinky ever tell you why she's giving out those gold weapons? And if you've got Number XX, how many other people have them?"
>>19694380god dammitI told you guys not to go to the bar. crazy pink hair girl won't won't have anything planned for her toys you said.arm yourself, but retreat if you can. this is not our preferred fight
>>19694390I bet each weapon is personalized.Anyway, the outcome has already been determined. We cannot fail.
>>19694380Please, if I wanted to kill you I would have wired explosives to the building you lived. Despite the fact that we hate each other we're coworkers.I'm just here to talk.Very carefully reload the pistol and prepare to pull timestop off at a moments notice, we got what we wanted from her, this is a good opportunity to off her.
>>19694375>There can be only one!
>>19694380Reassure her that you're not here to kill her (Certainly not at this exact moment, anyway), and try to swing the conversation back to the pink-haired girl. If we start panicking or suddenly changing our course, she's going to see something is up. Stay nonchalant.
>>19694380Ask her if she believes Pinky can see the future AND was telling her the truth, and not just fucking with us both for shits and giggles.And she can keep the gun if she wants. That way, the only person that can kill her is herself.
>>19694380Tell her that we wouldn't "want" to kill her anyhow
>>19694427>And she can keep the gun if she wants. That way, the only person that can kill her is herself.Oh, that's interesting. We weren't going to use it against her anyway.
>>19694427That one is cool. Seconding. We dont need the thing anyways.Tell her we've got much nicer playthings in our arsenal.
>>19694380"Let's say I want to kill you. You have the advantage in close quarters. If I wanted to kill you, I would be far, far away from here with a rifle as long as I am tall, and then some. No, I've come here to cooperate. You see, there is more to this pink-haired girl, and I want to find out what.""That leads me to a number of questions. How much DO you know about her? How many people has the appeared before? I'd assume at least 20, from the number on your blade. Do you know any of them? The weapons, could they be cursed?"
>>19694380Just because the girl holding this gun will kill you doesn't mean that it's me. A weapon can be wielded by more than one personPinky hasn't told me anything about someone killing me yet but then she hasn't really told me a great deal of anything yet
>>19694429Nah, that's too uncharacteristic from what our relationship apparently was.
>>19694427Yeah seconding this.She can blow her own brains out if she truly thinks it is whoever holds the gun that will do it
>>19694380"You trust Pinky? Fuck. Take the gun, it's yours. Let's see how that damn prophecy works out now."Take a smoke, act nonchalant, and make sure to let your hands be in easy reach of your other guns. Get ready to leap away from her katana.
>>19694380"Pinky says way too many things." pause"You know what's funny, she also warned me before Twenty - guess she just wants to push us against each other."
>>19694427Pretty much.>vengance recessiveEven captcha thinks this is a good idea.
> Deculture gone for an hour.Don't die, thread!
>>19694455This would be a fitting action.
>>19694427 >>19694415 >>19694407>>19694402Kirika seems to laugh at this. "Oh, yes, of course. You see why I don't really believe her. You're not the sort, I'm afraid, to actually respect the very notion of ending someone's life by doing it properly and professionally." The raven-haired Magical Girl smiles at you, her eyes hooded. "You kill from a distance, safe from any danger, much too far away to see the life dying out of your victim's eyes or hearing their final words. You don't even see how beautifully they bleed out as they pass from this world to the next." She lets out a sigh. "Honestly, Murderface, I'd like you a lot better if you weren't so proud of being such a filthy degenerate."She frowns slightly as you offer to give her the firearm - which you've just loaded yourself, the magazine sliding neatly into its slot and clicking firmly into place. "No, no, keep it. Really. I've no interest in it, or the prophecy the girl with the black eyes has for those she gifts these weapons to. I'm not sure if there are any other recipients of these, at that. I hardly care. All I do care about is how finely this one cuts. Nothing else."You shrug at this, before putting the Desert Eagle back in your inventory. If she says you can keep it, then you are. You're strangely feeling attached to it, in any case. With your gun put away and her letting go of her sword, the tension seems to be done away with for now. You take out your pack of cigarettes, stick one between your lips, and wordlessly offer Kirika one."Ah. Another disgusting habit of yours. Thank you, Murderface, but I don't smoke."
>>19694657You shrug again, before making to light your cigarette. You hold up your zippo to your face, peering at the reflection on the polished metal - and you swear you could see Pinky behind you, smiling.You turn around. No one is there.You turn back around - and it's then that you notice Kirika is gone. You glance around for her, and you see her heading out the door...while the six men who'd been in the bar with you suddenly stand up, drawing guns from inside their coats."I don't believe in prophecies, Murderface. I do believe a little blue bird that told me about someone volunteering to retire me."Six firearms click noisily as they're aimed at you. The bartender is strangely absent."You're not going to retire me, Murderface. You're not good enough to." She turns her head, slightly, to grin at you. "Take care of her,gentlemen. You can have what's left."She disappears, and the Yakuza start to open fire.Yes. Yes, this is exactly how you planned things to turn out. Fantastic.How do you react?
>>19694663Timestop and fire away.Chase that bitch and shoot her dead
>>19694663Dive our a window if we can leaving a primed grenade behind. Otherwise throw a flashbang and leave this place in another fashion and then leave a grenade for them.
>>19694663we had to talk to the other magic girls and go to the bar. there was no way it could go wrongcan we get away without timestop? meeting pinky here would be terrible
>>19694663Okay. Who the fuck could be that blue bird? Time stop. Kill 'em. Without sounds preferably. Then leg it out the back. Keep the stop up as long as possible.
>>19694663Flip over the bar to get cover, throwing grenades towards the Yakuza.Timestop as needed.Also, looks like she was already aware that the hit job she got was a trap already.
Stop time, say hi to pink, 6 9mm exit holes. We do this with class, P08 luger.
>>19694672hell no, we go back to HQ and tell them they have a a fucking leak
>>19694663Timestop, walk out after her while dropping grenades, put a bullet in her head.Bitch.If Pinky shows up, we tell her we're busy and we can talk later.
>>19694663Stop time. Grab a bottle of whiskey, the deagle and kill both the bottle and the menThen call Kyoko and brag that we took out half a dozen yakuza before lunch and ask her what she has done with her day
>>19694676From what she said, someone already told Kirika that we were going to be retiring her. She would have worked out that the assignment from QB was just a trap. So actually, this is for the best. We would have been wasting our time tonight at best, and ended up being counter-ambushed at worst.
>>19694663Time stop. Say hi to Pinky, remove guns, and add them to your collection.Kick them in the balls and tear out their throats with a broken bottle.> Oh fuck, what do we do about the mutant cat?
>>19694695it had to have been leaked last night, else she wouldn't know *who* was to retire her. unless it was the bitch we calledretreat and bitch about internal services
>>19694695This is a very good point>>19694676We needed to know what she knew anyway. We had a good idea we would be walking into a trap but we had to find out anything we could about pinky, that sword and if she had any idea she was being retiredLucky us that we found out a lot about each one
>>19694711Nah she hates this bitch more than she hates usMaybe her girlfriend passed it along though>>19694699Tell him that he has a leak in his agency and throw him into oncoming traffic
>>19694699>Oh fuck, what do we do about the mutant cat?You think this was actually a job meant to retire us?True, Kirika is the Magical Girl best suited to retiring us. But I don't see the profit in it for QB, unless there's something else about the golden gun and Pinky we don't know about.
>>19694695How? If she didn't show up to the hit she'd be publicly labeled rogue. So she have to show up, and we have a rifle with a three mile range. There'd be no counter ambush.Going to the bar was all risk no reward. We know the pink girl wants to kill us already.
>6 YakuzasCan handle them without wasting Timestop, I guess.Well we actually figured out that Kirika can see Pinky as well, the same pinky as we we do, but doens't really care either way as long as she can carry on with killing.And she didn't try to chop us apart in melee right ways.That's two strong pluses.Getting shot at any 6 normal guys is just small downsdie.
>>19694733She already knew she was being retired. She wouldn't turn up to the fake mission since she would be hunting down QB and tossing him the assassins head while she has the soul gem
>>19694733We could do this Wanted style, kill this psycho from three miles while she's on the move while laying on our bed with the new biatchez.
Also letting 6 Yakus (with guns) kill us while she runs off is actually far more cowardly than using guns in the first place. Tease her with that first opportunity we get.
>>19694733She wouldn't show up because she was already informed that she was going to be retired. Why go do the assignment that is most likely to be a trap instead of using the time to prepare a way out, either by leaving the country or defecting to another Incubator's service?
>>19694750>>19694761If she doesn't show for the mission, then the entire agency would fall down onto her head. If she ran for it, then HQ internal affairs was at fault for the leak.There was no good reason to meet her at the bar. We know pink wants us dead. We know she fucks around with people. We got nothing out of it.
>>19694727Either Kyubees Security has a hole, he was plotting something or Mami betrayed us. Or Kyoko figured something out even though we didnt exactly tell her, and she seemed to stupid for that. Mami... I dont want to believe it. All thats left is to go and shoot some Incubators when we are done here.
>>19694774>If she doesn't show for the mission, then the entire agency would fall down onto her head.That's what's already happening.>>19694789We didn't tell Mami that we're retiring Kirika.
>>19694774Except for confirmation that she isn't just an hallucination, and she's handing out gold-plated weapons like candy.
>>19694789I doubt it was Mami, she has the opportunity but it isn't her style.I can see Kyoko or Sayaka figuring it out and selling us out since either way it gets rid of someone they hate>>19694774I doubt that. If she didn't show it would be that she knew she was being retired, she isn't the sort to run so she would be going to cause as much destruction to the agency as she could.Quite simply this is still a better result than going into that fight tonight without this information since she could very easily have been waiting for us to come try and get her so she could fuck us with her sword.Since we know our main plan is a bust we can use our fallback of using her friend as bait
If pinky could foresee the the weapon destiny thing, then It's fairly possible that she's the birf. Especially If they talk often
>>19694823Pinky may well be just bullshitting and handing the weapons out herself.Wouldn't be surprised if she was the leak however
>>19694823>>19694826>I don't believe in prophecies, Murderface. I do believe a little blue bird that told me about someone volunteering to retire meThis implies that it wasn't pinkie
Okay, now what was the name of that BFF the katana bitch happens to have?
>>19694850> blueDid we say anything to Sayaka?
>>19694817We're fighting her alone, in a place her choosing, while she has backup. It is no way being then reporting her AWOL after she fails to show up for her hit, promoting a greater agency response then a quiet "retirement."We also obviously following pink's little game by talking with other gold weapon holders. It'd been better to not go into a situation planned by antagonistic forces.
>>19694850Well Sayaka's clothes are blue aren't they?Never known people mentioning the colour so specifically in that saying
>>19694864Her hair and eyes, too.
>>19694864Wouldn't be surprised, it was the first thing to pop into my head.
>>19694880I think Oriko's prescient? That might explain it. Or does it only affect Meguca?
>>19694663Invoke Time Stop. Shoot the yakuza and then go after Kirika. Be CAREFUL; I knew meeting Kirika was a bad idea.
>>19694880Well, I was pointing that out more along the lines that we could use a hostage, but either works, really.
>>19694895From what we have found out not meeting her would have been worse since she knew she was being targeted and could well have been waiting for us when we went to kill her
>>19694663retreat to cover, avoid timestop if we can, kill the minions. keep an eye out for bullettime sword to the face
Argh, fuck the "could have been" scenarios, there are six guys asking for a bullet right now and one arrogant bitch that deserves a couple in very near future.Chop Chop, let's get to work so we can be home for Mami's pancakes.
So yeah, we now go for Oriko, right?We should bring someone with us since Kirika will be there too
>>19694939Yep, regrets are for people not about to blow holes in shit with a big gun
Waiting for Deculture...
Um, not meaning to be rude or anything, but can we be a little bit less /k/? Particular gun calibres/models aren't really interesting to me, and by the way Protoculture ignores them I don't think he/she is that much of a gun freak either.
>>19694966I know enough about guns that you point the open end at someone and pull the trigger so I am with you on that
Could the Roman numerals on the weapon be references to the Major Arcana?
>>19694977>20 is blowing her own trumpetFirst thing I saw.
>>19694977>PersonaConsidering that we got revived from dream-trap perpared by Emi by getting shot in a head... there might be some similarities.What is VIII anyway? Chariot?
>>19694966We are here to kill in style sir. That requires a good gun.>>19694977hm, VIII is justice then? while swordbitch is a hearld of something.
>>19694995it's a set of scales.
>>19694972>>19694966This thread is far from as /k/ as it could be. You're welcome to ignore the bits. These are the bits that save your ass though.>>1969500320 is Judgement
>>19695003So Pinky wants to kill Justice using her Herald?>>19694966No.
>>19694972That's a bit less than one should know if he's to ever encounter an actual gun (not implying that you should) there are still things such ar reloading or safe.... But I have to agree on too much /k/ leaking into this thread.
>>19695023I don't mind the /k/ as long as they're not jerks about it.
>>19695009Right, I'm blind, sorry, Chariot is VII.So we are... Balance?
>>19694679 >>19694748 >>19694895 >>19694929The first round to be spat out in the ensuing bulletstorm hasn't even made it out of its barrel when you've already vaulted over the bar itself, landing neatly behind it and hunkering down for cover. The perfume of so many high-quality alcohol start to thicken the air - mixing with the scent of gunpowder - as the spray of gunfire above you reduces the entire stock of the bar into nothing but broken glass and fumes. You would have cried at the sight of such folly, had you not rescued a bottle of whiskey a moment before the impromptu firing squad started shooting up the place. You take a leisurely swig from it, before racking your shield twenty degrees counterclockwise, twice - dispensing two grenades into your right hand, the pineapples clinking heavily in anticipation.You take another swig, before arming the two explosives with a simple tug of their safety rings - and then casually toss them over your shoulder and over the bar. You almost snort whiskey out of your nose as you hear one of the yaks actually curse in pain following a rather nasty cracking sound - one of the grenades must have hit someone in the face. Lucky.You're already out the back door - the inside of the bar also strangely empty. The bartender must have been warned by Kirika in advance, by the way the back door itself seemed to be ajar. You glance around - the back door leads out to an alley, with a busy road visible at the nearby exit. You start walking just as the bar behind you explodes in a firey inferno, both grenades detonating at the same time.Someone ratted you out. You're not surprised of this happening, but you do wonder who did it. You have suspects in mind, but nothing really tangible for now. It could have been the mutant cat for all you know. But what's certain is that Kirika now knows you're out to kill her.How do you proceed from here?
>>19694977You might be interested to note that Desert Eagles have variants called the Mark I, Mark VII and Mark XIX, with the last being the most famous. Though I couldn't find a picture of it stamped on a deagle.> OP missed making the numeral a coincidence by just 1 digit.
>>19695011so, we're completely out of balance with the hiding behind drinking, while she kills pretty much indiscriminately.inversions then?>>19695023I'm sorry, I just wanted to see us use a tank gun for a later boss encounter.>>19695047Report her AWOL and bitch about the leak, see if we can get backup. Even people on intel would help.
>>19695047Well she's probably not going to turn up at the fake mission, so that plan's out. With her speed she could be anywhere.She doesn't know where we live, does she?
>>19695047Get the fuck away from the scene of the crime, fast. After that do what >>19695071 suggests.
>>19695076She might. We called her and she said she'd use triangulation.
>>19695076Oh! And take a photo of a rude gesture and mail it to QB. Some fuck sold us out.
>>19694995VIII is strength. An arcana symbolising a deep interior strength. Self-control is the word here. Patience, Solidity. Discipline, but also compassion and kindness. That's kinda works with us, what with all the "I'm a magical girl noir" in us.XX is judgment. It's a bad card. A really bad card. That's the card of Sodome and Gomorre - when God go apeshit insane and decide to kill them all because. It represent the Apocalypse, too.
>>19695047Find Mikuni Oriko.She WILL be there, sooner or later
>>19695047I believe it is time to track down that bitch and turn her head into a substance that most closely resembles chunky salsa.First get the fuck away from here before the fuzz shows up. Call people up, get information on where she is likely to go in times of danger, make sure that the people at our home are prepared for an attack. Find Oriko, she will probably go to her.I believe Nice Magical Girl time is over, we take her out from as long a distance as possible with the largest caliber rifle we can acquire.
>>19695047Report to the cat that the bitch knew we were coming for her. Then bring out the big guns.
>>19695087We need to reequip to take her on. A deagle and two nades isn't going to cut it.
>>19695063We already established that it's a Mk. XIX Desert Eagle .50 AE (earlier models dont come in this caliber and Deculture specifically mentioned XIX as well).>MissionCapture BFFTie her upPut her on a stakeLight it on fireForce #20 to come out and save the wench20mm to the headPut BFF out of her misery if we dont have backup to untie her in time.Mission accomplished.Cold, professional brutality.
>>19695047>How do you proceed from here?Call Kyoko, casually tell her that you've just met the katana bitch and she tried to kill you right out of the blue (which is pretty much true).Thank her for the tips she gave us earlier today.

Just a little checkup - QB never directly lies, right? It (he?) doesn't tell you important things because "you dindn't ask, sorry, lol". But when you ask, it answers.How about we just call him and ask him?
>>19695159Agreed. Send more pictures of Dickbutt too.
>>19695159He lies by omission, he tells you things but leaves out small but vital details such as becoming a magical girl turns you into a lich
>>19695191Because you didn't ask. Those things are details. Read the fineprint. His contracts are mostly vocal so the fineprint has to be asked for.

>>19695209Anything he can omit, he WILL. No exceptions.
>>19695107>>19695102>>19695094You step out casually into the sidewalk amidst the now-approaching sirens, reaching up with your left hand to straighten your glasses and pat your skirt down. People don't seem to notice you, instead looking towards the now-raging inferno that was once a bar called Tatsumi's. You hail another cab, and the driver murmurs something about terrorists as he drives you to a location you say out of rote memory. You'll need bigger guns to deal with this, you decide. Two grenades and a Desert Eagle certainly won't be enough for Kirika. For this, you need a little sister's help.It'll be a while before you get to where you're supposed to. You need to make a few calls, though, right away. You dial Kyuubey's number. After two rings, he picks up."Yes, Matsuda? Can you be helped?"How do you report what happened?
>>19695223Does he actually give a straight, no omissions answer at all in the series? I am trying to remember if so but I am pretty sure he doesn't
>>19695227You have a leak in your organization somewhere asshole.I just ran into Kirika who told me she knew someone volunteered to retire her and tried to get a bunch of goons to kill me.The plan is a bust you have anything as a back up?
You have a leak.
>>9695227"Kirika was tipped, off. Knew my mission, wanted to talk. Tried to kill me with yakuza, blew up the bar."
>>19695227"Seen any little blue birds around lately? Apparently one of them informed Kirika of her impending retirement."
>>19695227"Hey dickbutt she knew about her retirement."
>>19695227bitch about the leak. Quiet "retirements" require some level of secrecy. ask for backup and intel. see they can pick up her squeeze while you rearm.
>>19695254thisHow does a cat pick up a phone anyway?
>>19695243This. Add that Kirika was tipped off by somebody, knew her assignment was fake and that Chiaki was gunning for her, and tried to set a trap for us. Don't mention the golden weapons or Pinky just yet.If the stupid mutant cat can tell half-truths or lie by omission, then so can we.
>>19695264Opposable secondary ear.
Why is everyone trying to be snarky and shit? We want to get this done quick.The less we talk to dickbutt the better.
Though Kirika may be a smug asshole who doesn't believe that we can kill her in a million years, we must assume that she has contingencies in place for something like this. She may have already anticipated any moves to use her best friend against her. The question is how to find her now that she's probably not going to take the fake job that QB set up for her.Another thing we may want to do is to check on Iori and make sure that she's going to be safe so long as Kirika is alive. If she's spooked, she may try to use Iori as a shield or bargaining chip.
>>19695264custom kitty headsets
We report nothing. We can play the omitting game as well. Besides, there's no need."She knows about my mission. Someone told her. Who?"(dont mention the blue bird unless he appears ignorant)"Where does her golden sword come from? What does it signify? Is it the reason for my mission?"(DO. NOT. MENTION. THE. DEAGLE.)Any other questions?

>>19695292>(DO. NOT. MENTION. THE. DEAGLE.)
>>19695292If we mention the sword he'll want to know why it's important to us.
>>19695269Well for one we fucking despise the little prick, two he either set us up or is too stupid about how he has set this up and three we are in a bad mood to begin with
>>19695304She told us about it herself, if he asks.
>>19695292>>19695304Skip the sword, we don't want to draw ANY attention to the golden weapons.
>>19695314We need to know. We may need to ditch it, destroy it, whatever.
>>19695314Skip the sword unless he brings it upMention the little blue bird
>>19695320but not from the person who can order our retirement
He has already seen the Deagle. Read the threads.
>>19695330Yep, he sat when he came to debrief us
>>19695330In that case may as well ask more directly.
>>19695330But he doesn't know it's important. Also Deculture that specifically, so you need to follow your own advice.
>>19695330Hmmm, and we did see the golden katana Kirika has. But I'm not sure if informing the freak cat about that now is the right move or not.
>>19695330it's probably why he offered us the mission, to see what'd we do.we should try to not seem unloyal to the god cat thing, when we find the next golden weapon he's going to be very suspicious
>>19695347Well we aren't telling the little fuck ANYTHING beyond that she has it and asking what he knows about it.If he asks about our gun we say it was on one of the otaku bastards we blew to pieces and we liked it enough go hang onto
>>19695344What? How about using English? Or German. Or Latin, though I'd have to guess my way through that and might miss a few things.
>>19695344>>19695361Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
>>19695361>Also Deculture _said_ that specifically>That being: QB didn't seem to realise the importance of the gun.
>>19695385>Didn't SEEM[...]Doesn't mean he doesn't. I'm also not saying we should advertise it. I'm just saying that being against mentioning it this vehemently is stupid, because he knows.
>>19695385Count on him knowing and not showing it. Dont think we can fool him either, but at least we can pretend we can. Either way, gold weapon info is critical.That said, if we can acquire it through other means... please do. But I doubt anyone knows, besides pinkslut who doesn't seem like the type to talk much about what we want to know specifically.
>>19695254 >>19695250 >>19695249>>19695243You blow Kyuubey an irritated raspberry through the phone, which admittedly loses a bit of its impact simply because 1) he's not hear to see it and 2) it doesn't translate well into cellphone audio, by the way he seems to be confused about it. "I think I'm losing you, Matsuda, you're breaking up. Are you going through a tunnel or...?"You cut him off by reporting, as curtly and as quickly as you can, that Kirika knew about her impending retirement. You tell him about the altercation that resulted in a bar getting blown up, and six yakuza members presumably being roasted into cinders as you speak. You leave out the thing about the weapons, of course. "...Impossible. No one was supposed to know, except you. You did receive the dossier personally, didn't you? It can't be the courier, he's explicitly instructed not to open them under any circumstances."You're silent at this. You didn't...receive the dossier personally, no. It was already there on the side table, with the pancakes Mami made.A moment more, and Kyuubey lets out a frustrated sigh. "I'll see what I can do from here. In the meantime, I suppose you're headed to that place to rearm? If you need it, you can ask her to back you up. I'll authorize it. In the meantime, I'll send Mami over to your place. Knowing Kirika, she might get it into her head to wait for you there, and you have a principal to take care of."That's certainly...considerate of the little bastard.You thank him, and end the call, just as a couple of fire trucks blaze past you, evidently sent to confine the fire you just made.What do you do next?
>>19695397If he asks about it, be half honest.It's a gaudy gun that we'd prefer not to use but is actually quite good anyways.Skirt around questions of where we got it.
>>19695413>Mami sold us outD:
Good enough. Rearm. Get her as backup, if she could be useful.I have no idea who "she" is, by the way.
Okay, so Kyubey apparently wants us to shut up about the golden weapons.
>>19695413>It was already there on the side table, with the pancakes Mami made.NO. Not Mami. Everything but Mami. I don't want to believe she's the traitor. I mean, she can't, can she ?
>>19695413So...Mami may have sold us out.No sir I don't like it.Call Kyoko, ask if she's at our place protecting the idol.
>>19695434No, our GM does.Anyway. Call Mami. "I know you sold me out. I'll hunt you down along with her. Since I considered you my friend, I'll allow you this warning."No more than that. Let's see what she does with that bluff.
>>19695442It's Magical Girl Noir Quest. If your friends don't betray you to your enemies, it's been a good day.
>>19695442Noir quest being dark? Who'd have thunk it.Maybe we're so pathetic that the universe can't let us have more then one friend at a time. Iori's getting too close to us.
>>19695459>Call MamiBest keep her in the dark until we can actually ascertain who sold us out.
>>19695442If what Kiriko herself said is an indicator, it wasn't a yellow haired girl.
>>19695425>Mami sold us outThat's one of the options / possible explanations.The other being:1) Kyoko knew what the other assignemnet was and let katana bitch know because she wants to settle it herself (it's unlikely, but so is Mami ratting us out - she might to exactly like Murderface, but I'm pretty sure she wouldn't betray QB).2) Pinky did it, she just wants to watch the world burn and she seems to be sort of omnipresent, so she could heave known about the assignment.3) QB wants one of us retired, doesn'tt really care which one (unlikely, because Kiriko is both way more murderhappy and way less controlable than our humble self, but so are the other scenarions).
Heh. What if it was Iori?
Also don't go straight home. 20mm rifle time. Check out our appartment through the scope. Call Mami whether we see her or not. If we do see her there, depending on her answer we drop her like a bag of bricks. If not, we assume she is there, but hiding, and blow the place sky-high. Don't mind the idol, we already got paid for that mission.
>>19695413OOC: Damn it. Mami may have sold us out. If she did, the "blue bird" remark may have been Kirika throwing us off the track. Iori is in REAL danger right now, from either Mami or Kyoko if Kirika's "blue bird" remark was truthful.Tell the cabbie to step on it. We HAVE to get home, re-arm, and protect the idol that schlicks while dreaming of us.
>>19695483Could still be the courier.
>>19695425>>19695442It could have been the courier still. or pinky.the GM could be trying to mislead us with a red herring to get us to kill our friendwe do nothing to let her know we thing>>19695413rearm, get our backup(not trusting her with our back however) and make a plan with her.try not to sky our loli guest
>>196954834: Sayaka overheard Kyoko talking about Kiriko and warned her someone was looking into her.
>>19695483If what >>19695477 said is true, could be Sayaka. I mean, we were talking to her girlfriend just earlier. If Kyoko knows, Sayaka knows, and while I wouldn't be surprised if Kyoko couldn't put two and two together, but Sayaka may have been able to.
>>19695483Add the thing with her precog BFF. At least someone mentioned it, i dunno the series.
>>19695494She was asleep and wrapped all around us. Can't have been her.>Pls no pls no pls no.
>>19695499Good point. We don't know if Mami was the courier or not.
>>19695499Coule be anyone, really.Still, there is pretty granted way how to find you. Cripple Kiriko and keep chopping bits off 'til she sings.
>>19695510We could always go the Littlefinger route and feed different versions of a similar plot to our suspects, and wait to see which gets uncovered...though we do have more pressing matters at this time.
>blue bird.I want to believe.
>>19695510If Iori was asleep, Miami was the one who opened the door and accepted the dossier. Or the courier could be compromised, or someone could have broken into out place for the documents. Or it was Iori.We were asleep and cannot confirm anything, unless we were paranoid enough to put a CCTV our apartment.Scope our apartment in case Kirika's waiting to shank us.
>>19695542Who does actually type our mission descriptions? I doubt it is the cat.
So yeah we kinda need to get our ass into gear, its time to act quickly and decisively.>call Mami>depening on answer, DEFCON 1 MOTHERFUCKER
>>196955055: The courier is the leak. We don't know if Mami was the courier or not.5 very plausible theories. Now the question is: what does Chiaki do that covers all 5? Anyone have a clue what Rick Deckard would do in this case?
>>19695542yes we need to be more paranoid. A lot more paranoid. Distrust everyone. EVERYONE. Don't hesitate to let their bodies hit the floor at the first significant sign of betrayal.
>>19695534Oooo....I like this one. Thirded.
>>19695559Courier is a man.>It can't be the courier, he's explicitly instructed not to open them under any circumstances.
>>19695559Get his ass handed to him and wait for the target to save his life and then die on their own?
>>19695573And if he's on Kirika's payroll....or Pinky's?!
>>19695559From my [spoliers]bad[/nospoliers] memory, I think he chases every lead down and shoots at them, gets shot at, then punches them until the plot shows him the light.
>>19695573>instructed not to>implying that physically stops him
>>19695505>4: Sayaka overheard Kyoko talking about Kiriko and warned her someone was looking into her.>Sayaka helps her GF's worst enemy.If that is the case, it's gone be one hell or partnership crisis I wouldn't want to watch.
>>19695459 >>19695452 >>19695431Still in the cab, thoughts of betrayal and friends selling you out running rampant in your head, you dial another number. It's Kyoko's, this time, her cellphone at least. You need to check up on her and Iori.She picks up on the second ring. "P-pause, pause! Don't unpause it, that's cheating, I gotta take this call!" Kyoko seems to be excited about something, and a voice in the background is audible. "Yeah, Murderface, what's up? I'm just giving Iori-chan here a lesson in pain, and why she should learn how not to be a total scrub in Street Puncher 4."Ah. Videogames. Kyoko must have brought her Polystation or Okama Game Sphere during her visit. That's nice, you suppose. At least Iori won't be bored.How do you warn her about Kirika?
>>19695576>inb4 the traitor has us at her mercy then, before she can finish us off, Iori shoots her in the head.
>>19695595Personally, I wouldn't disobey the god cat thing
>>19695413Dust dossier for fingerprints
>>19695584> Pinky's alivvvvvvvvvvve!Oh god the paranoia. Just scope out the apartment and if Iori's safe, watch the CCTV footage. Unless the tapes have been fucked with, then we just smack people until they 'fess up. [/nogoodatsleuthing]
>>19695573>instructed not to open them>doesn't stop others from opening it
>>19695600Kirika knew about her retirement party. Keep the loli safe till we get back, then we're planning her capture.>>19695610magic forensics better be awesome.
>>19695600Everything seems in order.Does Kyoko know about our mission? Tell her we ran into knives and she tried to off us. DON'T LET ANYONE IN.
>>19695600"Don't shock Iori. Kiriko may be near you, waiting for me to return."
>>19695600"Keep an eye out, your bestest sword-wielding friend might be coming in."
>>19695625Kyoko didn't know about the retirement, though. Would be better to just say our assignments overlapped like we thought and she tried to kill us.
>>19695600"Kirikas coming to my apartment to kill me. Seems like she got in on the little fact that i was sent to retire her. You were the only one i even remotely mentioned Kirika to. Whats your alibi?"
>>19695627This one. Doesn't tell her anything, but the needed detail that we are currently engaged with Kiriko in a deathly game and worry about our defenceless charge.
>>19695643then when we confront swordbitch and she talks about the retirement it'll cause Kyoko to pause in battlebest to be honest
>>19695600"Oh, and watch for Yakuza showing up, sword-bitch's made some friends."
>>19695632Also, politely request NOT to be called 'murderface' when she's around Iori.
"Golden Katana on the loose, beware. Have you seen Mami around? Know where she is?">No"Ok, I'm coming over right now. I'll call her on the way. Wait for me." ("me", not "us")>Yes"Where?">Here"Give the phone to her">Anywhere else"Ok, I'm coming over right now. I'll call her on the way. Wait for me." ("me", not "us")
>>19695647I like it. Seconded.
I regret to announce that the thread seems to be autosaging.Deculture, is there any chance you'd take drawing request? (unrelated to the quest)>>19695600"Thanks for the tips earlier today, save my ass, quite literally. Kiriko is on loose, sent bunch of guys after me, no biggie, but she's obviosuly full-on hostile now. I let QB know and he's trying to come up with some plan how to handle her. In the meanwhile, be extra careful. As for Iori, just tell her I had arguement with a colleague, but I should be back home as planned."
>>19695659>point our finger at the only one that isnt likely to have ratted us outhell yes we want to do that, but not on the phone.
If she doesn't know we were sent to off her, there's no need to tell her. You guys are giving away too much info. We already have a working story here >>19695643 .
Kirika heard that my assignment was to retire her and just tried killing me with some goons. She seems to be pretty chummy with the yakuza so keep an eye out for any suspicious characters or choppy mcbitch turning up to cause any trouble.She mentioned a little blue bird but I am at a loss for who she could mean, once Mami shows up do you mind coming help me put her down?Don't let her know we are suspecting her, she could take Iori hostage or just kill her if she is the leak
>>19695682Nah there is no point hiding it now since all we wanted was to avoid Kirika hearing about it, given that now she knows secrecy is useless
>>19695684are... are you saying we should kill Mami?You monster. Those pancakes are to DIE for!
>>19695682then when Kyoko finds out she's on a retirement mission and wasn't told she's not going to be happyand she will find out, better to be honest
>>19695700If I had a say in it we'd kill every other magical girl ever. But QB wouldn't dig that level of paranoia so we should keep our powerlevels hidden, for now.
>>19695700we've already been poisoned, time powers non-functional I bet if she has betrayed us
>>19695711yes this reminds me. make our own pancakes from now on until this mission is over.
>>19695700No I meant Kirika.Mami is taking over watching IoriNo fucking with the pancake supply
>>19695682Good point. You have my vote.
>>19695711Must have missed that. Where does it say we can't use our powers?
>>19695717you don'tt understand what happen when we make the pancakesbuildings burn down
>>19695731It doesn't he is jokingWe aren't fucking Mami up anyway. She is looking after Iori and we get blinky to help us take down Kirika
>>19695731I'm just hedging my betsGM didn't use time powers to deal with the minions, but that's not conclusive. We did say to avoid using them so as to not trigger pink
>>19695742Well Pinky may be our best bet right now. She's helped us before...
>>19695742We decided against using them because they were an easy fight and we want to avoid Pinky.
>>19695731Never.We CAN, we just don't want to because pinky.Also there has been no mention of poison.
>>19695742Yeah, we're avoiding Pinkie.Though I do wonder if it would be worth dipping into timestop to raise an eyebrow at Pinkie, seeing as she's apparently cheating on us with other people she may/may not have killed.
>>19695627 >>19695632 >>19695634>>19695643You speak quickly and quietly, telling her about how your assignment did overlap with Kirika's, and how the sword-wielding lunatic suddenly went berserk and nearly killed you with her Yakuza friends. You tell her to watch out for Kirika, not to let anyone else in, and not to scare Iori."...Alright. Okay. I understand. B-but Mami's already been here, she just stepped out for a second to buy us snacks...wait, she's here right now." A clatter and some static, and you hear Kyoko telling Mami to lock the door and close the windows.Another burst of static, and Kyoko comes back on. "Place is buttoned up. If she comes around with her party, we'll be ready. H-hey, maybe I should call Sayaka back here, too? She can help, right?"
>>19695799You open your mouth to answer when an entire meter of solid gold steel punches through the roof, heading straight down, stabbing right into your cellphone as you're holding it. You manage to let go just before it gets skewered, but the edge cuts into your cheek, causing blood to drip down from the superficial cut. You glance upward, the golden desert eagle snapping automatically into your hand, as you hear footsteps on the roof. The driver, an elderly old man, screams at the sight of the blade as it slices through the roof neatly, sawing up and down - and you see Kirika's face peering at you from the gash, grinning the grin the Grim Reaper usually has as a perennial facial expression.And her eyes, shining all black, empty and soulless. Radiating pure madness."THE FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS, MURDERFACE! TASTE IT AND BE FREE! RENDER YOURSELF UNTO HER SERVICE!"She shrieks down at you, cackling. The sword noisily withdraws, disappearing upwards, before it's stabbed again, downwards, this time right into the driver's skull.The driver dies with a pathetic death rattle as his hands fall from the steering wheel. The car starting to swerve. With a cackle, Kirika hops off, and she disappears before you could even draw a bead on her.What do you do?
Sure she can!Let's turn It inot a battle royale!
>>19695799No, I want her as backup. I'm going to confront Kiriko.
>>19695799If you want. I would like to avoid scaring Iori too much.How do you feel about taking revenge on the bitch? I can't take her since she knows I will be about
>>19695802"Yeah, no."*BANG BANG BANG*
>>19695802Shotguns!We need them
>>19695802Push the old mans corpse out of the way and get moving.If we see the bitch stop time and ram the card into her before we unload everything into her
>>19695810engaging her with just two mags of ammo is a terrible ideadisengage and get back to the house
>>19695802Too close. We really need to greet pinky here or we die. Period. She's too fast otherwise.
>>19695802Stop time, shove the dead driver over & jump into the front seat. Start time, grab the wheel and apply brakes. Get out & head for home while staying on our guard for ambush by Psycho-Kirika.
>>19695802>Flesh of Fallen Angels>taste>Max Payne>ValkyrFUCCCCCCCCKKKKK.
>>19695832If we stop time anyway why not kill the bitch first?
>>19695829I'm actually all for meeting Pinkie again.We can tell her that no, we will not be dining on grief seeds and soul gems, that's really not our style.
>>19695829Pinky seems to be on our side with this battle...or at least her money is on us.
I recommend doing the same as last time.Basically, keep the soul gem of every magic girl we beat.For the situation at hand, we need to get control of the car.
>>19695840Because she's already gone? Fuckin' reading comprehension: how does it work?>"With a cackle, Kirika hops off, and she disappears before you could even draw a bead on her."
>>19695840She's under Pinkie's influence...who says she's going to be affected?
>>19695826We have our shield of "oh god the guns, all of the guns" it's not like we will run out of ammo
>>19695802"Cannibalism makes you fat!"Rush to the driver's seat and try to slow our speed so we can get out of the damn car.
>>19695852well disregard that then. That said>dont proceed killing murderface when she has a clear advantagewhy would I even expect this to happen
>>19695852She's only out of sight.Also, we should take her sword as well just because.
>>19695836Don't be surprised if Kirika suddenly develops the ability to ignore even the most crippling pain.
>>19695873Agree there.We take that sword in case it can corrupt others
>>19695882Pretty sure she had that already like most magical girls.That's why we turned Midori into Emi remember?
>>19695802We can't let her keep bringing the fight to us like this, we need to take the fight to her or she'll eventually dart in and get lucky.Take control of the car, stop it from careening out of control, find Kirika and end her violently. If we can drive the taxi into her while timestopped, it'll be funny.
>>19695832 >>19695829 >>19695820The car gives a horrible lurch as it goes out of control. Getting knocked around the car, you stash the Desert Eagle back into your inventory before racking your shield a complete 180 degrees - the gears inside crunching loudly, the two remaining jewels sliding open and shining with bright purple light.A click, and the world stops, cast in a dull iron gray. Immediately, you take hold of the driver's corpse - the color returning to him briefly as you touch him - and you shove him out of the driver side door that you force open with a kick.He freezes in mid-drop, and you slip in between the passenger and driver seats to replace him. You take a moment to light another cigarette, before closing the door properly and putting on your seatbelt. You take this moment to look around, too - it seems that Kirika has indeed made her getaway."She's a fast one. She's out of your hair for now, really." A voice says beside you, preceded by the sweet, floral scent of corruption and decay.You turn slightly to look at Pinky sitting - no, reclining - on the passenger seat, pulling the seatbelt over her and latching it into place. "Safety first," she giggles.How do you react?
>>19695932Agreed. Kirika may go after the other girls but we will be her first target. After we >>19695832and re-arm, we need to set a trap for her somewhere. I'm thinking her girlfriend Oriko is her Achilles heel. Explosives, claymores, sniper position....after we've staked out Oriko's place of course.
Get control of car, DRIVE home, fill everyone in, get Sayaka on her way over. If Kirika attacks before then, waste her.She'll probably attack us on our way home, while we're on route play defensive, we probably can't take her out just with what we've got on us right now.
>>19695958"I don't get it, bro, is this a canibalism thing? I ate pancakes this morning, so I'm not really hungry."
>>19695958"Okay Pinky, what's with the gold weapons and eating angels?"If she doesn't answer, we drop out of time stop. No use corrupting ourselves further.
>>19695958"So it's you again, Pinky. It's funny how you keep showing up whenever I use my powers.""Care to explain just who the hell you are, why you have this hard-on for me, and why using one of your golden gifts seems to drive the user batshit insane?"
>>19695958So two timing on me Pinky? I thought we had something special.What's the deal with the flashy weapons anyway? Overcompensating or some crap like that?
>>19695958Put on sunglasses if we have them. See if we can tell which way Kirika went, she may have been prepared for a lot but she isn't prepared for a timestopped taxi ramming straight into her.If we have no idea and no way to tell where she went we may as well ask Pinky a few questions before we drop out of time stop.So, what's with the golden weapons Pinky? They go above 20? Why would someone want to eat the flesh of fallen angels, they don't sound half as good as pancakes.
>>19695979ABSO-FUCKIN'-LUTELY.We need answers. We need them now.Before we have to kill someone.The chatting is probably how she corrupts faster, though.
>>19695963Why does everyone forget we have planets worth of weapons sitting in our shield?If we wanted to we could probably drown a good few blocks in weapons and not make a dent in what our shield is carrying
>>19695958"Are you The Spirit of Booze Past, coming to haunt me after all this time? Punishing me for egregious liver damage?"
>>19696022Nah it is accepting her and drinking whatever shit Kirika drank that does that
>>19696010>So two timing on me Pinky? I thought we had something special.A million times this...
>>19696030>This fucking post.
>>19695958Cut the bullshit. No snippy remarks. No time to be snarky. Ask what the hell has happened to Kirika. Ask about the weapons. WHo is the leak? Hell, ask what the hell we're supposed to do if it comes to it.
>Pinky is Madoka, Witch-version
>>19696055But we came up with so many good lines, we can't just waste them all.
>>9696026This has NOT been proven to be true in decultures version. Also: if we have so much space, why do we have weapons stored outside it in our house?I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying there's nothing directly proving you right.
>>19696083Probably because we have little else to do besides fiddle around with the things we can pull out of it, and drink.Also I thought that we couldn't pick which weapons we got, just that they were 'appropriate', so perhaps Murderface keeps the ones she likes around to use again.
>>19696083We don't know its complete capacity in this. We don't have absolute control over what it spits out nor do we remember what we put in it. Those are two good reasons for storing weapons in our house as we won't always get the specific weapon we want if we reach into the shield, though I think it's always suited for the task at hand.
>>19696091We *could* try the disappearing ocean trick with our shield of holding. But it's best if we stored a sea of nukes instead, to prepare for the final battle.
>>19696100We have pulled out whatever we needed such as the twin ingrams in iori's penthouse or the pistols in Mami's apartment in the past. We have no idea what is in there aside from lots of guns
>>19696055>>19696010"So many questions, Homura-chan!" Pinky exclaims, a pair of fetching and expensive-looking shades materializing in her gloved hands. She puts them on carefully, smiling all the while. "I'm afraid I can't answer all of them right now, but what I can tell you is that the golden toys are important. They really really are, so you shouldn't throw them away! It's ideal if you collect as many of them, actually!"She giggles. "If you do, then I'll give you a special prize! It can be anything you want. Maybe...I can give you your old memories back, if you want them! Anything that I feel like giving, really."You grumble something about pink-haired idiots, and ask your questions again. A bit more forcefully, this time."Yes, yes. Clearly, your best friend has gone crazy. I don't know how, really, but I'm pretty sure it's not the pretty golden letter opener's fault! I mean, it's just a sword, when you get down to it!"Your shield is starting to grow just a bit warm, its inner gears protesting loudly. You'll have to undo the time stop soon."Sounds like our time's up, Homura-chan! Try not to get yourself killed, alright? You have a 50/50 chance of getting the dirt nap you deserve!"
>>19696180A click, and a loud grinding of gears, and your shield resets itself - the time stop disengaging, taking with it Pinky's existence.The car screeches as you slam on the brakes, and through some clever (and albeit impromptu countersteering) you manage to pull the car back onto the road. You're still bleeding from your cheek, and your cellphone's been sliced apart, but otherwise you're fine.You take another puff of your cigarette before punching it towards your rearming safehouse, and your potential backup. At least Iori's safe.The leak can wait. You have to take care of Kirika first.
>>19696180It's a shame all we want is for her to be dead again.To do list:-Do not collect all the golden weapons.-Destroy aformentioned golden weapons-Shoot pinkie with Deagle
>>19696215List should beCollect golden weaponsDestroy them as we collect themIf that doesn't work find somewhere to hide them ( shield long term storage? )Shoot pinky in the face with as many guns as we can find
I think this is a good place to pause.Thank you for participating everyone!
For someone who doesn't really know Madoka, how does our shield thing work? I mean, is there a limit to the number of times, or anything?Clarification would be great.>>19696242Oh dear. I only just got here.Thanks and stuff anyway, always love these quests.
>>19696185Check our Soul Gem while we drive to see if it needs purification/recharge/whatthefuckever. If yes, use a Grief Seed when we reach our destination. Then get more ordinance from the shield while we scope out our place for ambush/traps.If it's clear, then we go in & stock up while checking how Iori is doing.
>>19696242Thanks for questing!
>>19696242Cool.But man, your threads sure are irregular
>>19696215Sounds good. Make it so!
Hold up, where did we store our grif sidI mean we don't want the others to steal it
>>19696242thanks for writing!don't make our pancake dealer a double-crosser please
>>19696242See you next time, Deculture! This is getting damn good...
Thanks for the quest as always, Deculture, love your writing.Who's archiving?
>>19696245Canonically Homura's shield stored an infinite number of items that she could pull out and had a finite supply of magical sand that stopped time.Once the sand ran out she couldn't stop time any more but that was ok since the nature of her wish meant that she relived the same month near endlessly and each time she restarted her magical sand was full.She went through the same month that many times she managed to store up enough weapons to kill the population of the world a few dozen times over, a battleship and enough explosives to crack the world in half ( roughly )
>>19696257Pretty sure we hung onto them or stashed them somewhere safe.We are pretty paranoid after all
>>19696242Great quest so far, Deculture!As for the golden weapons... > mfw Holder's series> In any city, in any country, there's a mental institution or halfway house you can try any of these in. There were 2538 of these Objects, but 2000 were lost. The remaining 538 must never come together. Ever. [/paranoia]
>"It's ideal if you collect as many of them [as you can], actually!">"If you do, then I'll give you a special prize!" Why does she (presumably) want something she's giving out?I think something bigger is going on here </half-joke>
>>19696274I see. Was there any way to get more sand?Because that sounds important.
>>19696245Ah, sorry about that. I started earlier.>>19696248Thank you for participating! I'm glad you enjoyed it!>>19696260I can't guarantee that!>>19696251Yeah, I try to make this quest when there's not many quests being active at the moment. Sorry about that.
>>19696269I got it.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19693145/
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questvoteage>>19696315don't make us hurt you
>>19696315we need those pancakes, how else will we feed lori?
>>19696309I don't remember them mentioning it during the series because she was in a time loop where the sand would run out and reset her to the start of things so she could try again.her wish basically caused her to be kept in a time loop of one month for god knows how long and each time she remembered everything that had happened which started to wear on her because she had failed to help her friends dozens of times over and it caused her to become jaded and almost stop caring about things other than her goal.In the final loop ( the one the series takes place in ) she tries killing kyuubey before he can cause the other girls to make contracts
>>19696360Acquire a microwave and some instant ramen and nukeable meals? I'm not really sure if Chiaki knows how to cook...or can stay sober long enough to do it without burning the apartment down.This thread is proof of one thing: even lesbians like their lovers alpha as fuck.
>>19696315If she is a traitor then we go traitor with her.Nothing separates us from those goddamned pancakesAlso do the other girls know she is Homura or just Mami?I get the feeling they knew what she was but can't bring it up with her because either it will not do anything or worse it will cause her to have a total breakdown
>>19696380I'm guessing we had a mental breakdown previously when one of the girls mentioned our real name, so they're probably under orders from the mutant cat or decided amongst themselves to humor Chiaki and call us whatever we want to be called at the time.
>>19696366Very good then.Thanks.I'd give you something but I don't know what you like
>>19696414everyone loves some huge
>>19693145Hey Deculture, where can I drop you a line? I wish to make a dark pact with you.
>>19696380IF it is Mami, that meansA: she actually does not like usB: she doesn't want any magical girls killedEither way, she probably isn't PLANNING to go rogue, it's just a result of her actions.I really want it to be Sayaka. My excuse is she held us at knifepoint before.
>>19696436Sexy Magical Girl Noir Quest?
>>19696412Well I think it might be that everyone remembers what happened to put us this way or it was passed around and so they put up with what we have become because they are hoping that eventually we will remember.Mami being Mami probably is the only one who can both put up with us and also wants us back to normal because she can't stand seeing her friends suffer
>>19696444That's a pretty good theory, D. Sayaka doesn't like us but she hates Kirika more, doesn't she?I'm thinking it can't be that simple. I wouldn't put it past the freak cat to be using Chiaki as bait to draw out the rogue Incubator or whatever QB thinks the mastermind is behind the whole thing.
>>19696412It's probably that everyone is used to us calling ourselves something new from time to time.Kyoko still calls us murderface like it's what we go by, and Mami said something like "if that's what you want to be called now..." when we said our name's Chiaki.
>Max Payne>Valkyr>ValkyrieYep. Kirika's more much dangrous than we think.
>>19696436A what?I...guess? Email in email field, I suppose.
>>19696444Well I just doubt it is Mami since she is still in this incarnation very heavily on the "not hurting people" and she would know that telling Kirika that someone is out to retire her would just make her track them down so she could kill them firstIf we have a leak I think it is very likely that it is Sayaka or Kirika had Orikko tip her off
>>19696559Well, it is POSSIBLE that, if it is Mami, she thought Kirika would run rather than fight. Or she implored Kirika to run rather than fight.We might find out, too.
>>19696483That's probably what we have gone by the longest or the most consistently>>19696484Yeah the flesh of fallen angels bit is a huge tip IMOThe golden weapons we can trust pinky on. They aren't outright magical or corrupting, it is the promise of more power like that if you embrace her and take the flesh ( whatever was in kirika's hell brew ) that gives them more power at the cost of sanity
>>19696585so the solution is to only eat pancakesI can dig this
>>19696577Nah she would know Kirika too well that she wouldn't run, she may have implored her to run or she may have expected us to not contact her early and bug out when we saw something was weird with the set up but Mami is smart enough to know what her friends will do in certain situations. We are probably the only exception since we aren't who we used to be
>>19696598Covered in Mami's special maple syrupAnd if she is the traitor then the secret ingredient is...
>"I don't believe in prophecies, Murderface. I do believe a little blue bird that told me about someone volunteering to retire me." For a second I was thinking she said she knew it was US that was sent after her.
>>19696640Valkyr....Why are you guys looking at me like that?
>>19696599Fair enough, just a thought.
>>19696661I think she was ignoring the fact we could kill her because we use cowardly weapons. She heard it was us but given that we didn't act our usual hostile self and that we didn't flinch on her mention of her being retired she crossed us off the listShe may hate them but she obviously regards Sayaka and Kyoko more highly than us and probably expects it to be one of them who actually took the job and is gunning for herWe never found it if her friend is still a magical girl in this either
>>19696640LOVE!...Oh, you mean the other one.Souls of the innocent and ground Soul Gem.
>>19696677It was a good point but it just falls out of character unless Mami is also secretly a lunatic with golden weapons and a magical girl crack habit
>>19696714Well if she isn't the traitor then love is the secret ingredient in all her foodIf she is then yeah ground soul gems to make that good taste extra goodWhat did we do with emi's soul gem btw? I forgot
>>19696726I think it's still in that glass of whiskey back in our apartment.
>>19696710I just realized something amusing, that I probably should have noticed earlier."Pride cometh before thy fall."We are the only currently known magical girl that she sees as no threat what-so-ever to at all.
>>19696755I thought we stashed it in our inventory.
>>19696726Her soul gem is in a glass of whiskey in the apartment, her body is in a secure room in QB's pimp hq awaiting interrogation.
>>19696758And that's the important thing, Kirika is so sure we are no threat and that she could kill us easily that we use that to our advantage when we fight her.
>>19696830Heh. She's so sure, she thinks it can wait for "when ever".I'd have tried taking us out in the cab. Sword through head, get in and destroy the Soul Gem. Of course, she wasn't exactly thinking logically then.
I'm kinda of the opinion that whenever she shows next, we should just immediately stop time, Pinky or no. Kirika is just too damn fast.
>>19696986well, what's the backup girl's power?I'd rather not stop time and feed her soul or something to pink
rolled 12, 11, 11, 12, 9 = 55>>19696986I agree. Go with the antitank gun to the knees from a distance, get in close and put a few more of the same in her while stopped.Then take her gem and sword, because souvenirs.Shoot her again with an Olburs(sp) just to finish up.
>>19697201That, is a fine question.
>>19696986Disarm her. The proceed to beat her to death with the aforementioned arm.But hell, we've been told a couple times that she'd likely slip up if we got that sword away from her. Any chance we have to do that we should take it and then kill her.We could always go after her friend to try and go on the offensives, but I still think that might be crossing a line with her, and would have dire consequences.
>>19695958You are now imagining Pinky giggling like Hibachi.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gTqnQdmDJU#t=3m25s
>waiting for MGNquest>can't find it>"guess Deculture doesn't run it today">check back before sleeping>not only was it run but i also missed the entire thingit is times like these that i am very disappointed in myself.
>>19697201Also:>implying Pinky hasn't already claimed Kirika's soul.>>19697264I think we've lost the chance to take her from range. The battle has been engaged, so we're likely just gonna have to deal with it at closer ranges than we might like. Disable her while in the time stop, then we can kill her outside of it if people think it's a problem.>>19698074I had to miss the actual thread due to sleep, myself.
Does anyone actually have a problem with taking Kirikas Soul Gem instead of destroying it"
>>19698228I think it's a bad idea to try to keep her alive like that.She's currently absolutely bugfuck, we won't get anything out of interrogation, and it's an unnecessary complication to an already dangerous fight. We kill her, we explode her soul gem, we feed her body through a wood chipper and then burn the gibbets with gasoline.
>>19698615>interogationNever said that, ever. Just said keep, because I like the idea of having a reminder of every MG we've had to 'turn off'.
