You are a Magical Girl, and someone clearly wants you dead.You're currently driving a taxi cab with the roof half-torn off by another Magical Girl with a golden pig-sticker, all while rambling about the flesh of fallen angels. You were there in the back seat when she skewered the driver's head through the car roof, and you had to throw his corpse out so that you could grab the wheel and stop the cab from crashing headlong into oncoming traffic.You could use a drink, but it's probably a good idea to remain sober right now, as you punch it to the nearest safehouse. You light another cigarette with the smouldering stub gripped between your lips, before you spit said stub out and replace it with the newly-lit one. Burning nearly half of the fresh cigarette with one deep inhalation.Rearming yourself with much more serious hardware than your golden Desert Eagle and two grenades is of course your priority right now, but you can't help but think back to just what happened. What was supposed to be a relatively calm yet scathing conversation with Kirika Kure in a Yakuza bar resulted in said Yakuza bar being shot up by the yaks themselves, and you having to resolve the situation with two primed grenades. That in itself isn't bad, as your social interactions usually turn out like that in some way or another, but what Kirika said just before she left you to get shot up...it's making you rethink your relationships a bit. What little you have of them, anyway.You raise a hand and scratch the itchy cut Kirika had scored you on your cheek with - an unlucky wound after she tried to skewer you from above. She managed to skewer your cellphone instead, which is now a pile of useless pink-encased electronics on the back seat. You'll have to requisition another one later, you think to yourself as your fingers come away with bloody flakes. At least the wound's dried and stopped bleeding.
You finally arrive at your destination. It's been exactly an hour and a half since your disastrous date with Kirika Kure, which makes it around early afternoon. You've stopped directly in front of an abandoned-looking warehouse in a lot full of warehouses, just a few ways near the docks. Warehouse #0069, to be exact, clumsily spray-painted onto the rusty sliding doors. You turn off the taxi's engine and step out.You suppress a smile at the number. Grow up, will you?You step up to the main doorway and bang the heel of your hand into it a couple of times. You hear the noise echo dully inside, and strangely enough, there doesn't seem to be anything going on beyond the metal gate. Strange, considering that the person you're supposed to meet is known for endlessly tinkering with stuff that's considered far and away more dangerous than firearms. Explosions and other disturbing noises are usually expected....Kirika couldn't have gotten to her already, has she?What do you do?
>>19707640It's entirely possible. Is there a secondary entrance or some way of performing reconnaissance on the interior of the building before entering it?
>>19707640Bang on the door again and if there is no response then blow the lock off the door
Fuck yeah MGNQ. Also, prepare, hand on gun, alertness engage, wait for some response.
>>19707640Knock again, then find a window to look in through.
Reading the setup brought some serious Black Lagoon nostalgia on. As such, I'd like to ask if we're Magical Girl Revy Two Hands or not. If the answer to that is yes, then obviously it's time to go in guns blazing, as that always seems to work out the best for Revy. If not, steath. See if there are any grimy windows to peer through, or check for roof access and see if there are any skylights. Batman always lucks out and gets skylights.
>>19707706We are sort of magical girl Max Payne / Deckard Although we do some rather black lagoonish things when we get pissed off
>>19707730Neat. Then I amend my vote fot the reconnaissance / skylight method, with optional 'burst through skylight shooting everything that moves' if there's cause to do so.
>>19707706 >>19707669 >>19707664Burning through the rest of your cigarette as you glower at the dark, soundless warehouse, you let the smoldering filter fall from your lips before grinding it out with the heel of your shoe. Normally you'd put this strange behavior down to the girl's admittedly quirky personality, but under current circumstances, a bit of paranoia is justified.You draw the golden Desert Eagle from your inventory and make your way around the warehouse, quietly, looking for any signs of forced entry. The building itself doesn't have a skylight, and what windows you find doesn't seem to be broken. Trying to peer through them doesn't help, as the occupant has them boarded up. You walk back right where you started, muttering curses under your breath. You'll have to go in the only way through, and you know how well that's going to work out.Taking a deep breath, you kick the sliding gate open - it takes a few to do so - and you immediately rush in, firearm held with both hands in front of you, ready to shoot.All you see is darkness - and what looks to be a pair of narrowed crimson slits, blazing with light, at the very center of the unlit warehouse. It's...maybe seven, eight feet off the ground. You hear the deafening whine of machine joints and servos as it turns to face you.It's then that you hear whatever it is talk - and it sounds like someone roaring into a massive loudspeaker with the bass turned up."MURDERFACE. WE MEET AGAIN AT LAST."It takes one single step, preceded by the chainsaw-pitch whine of its joints, and the entire ground shakes.You're...well. You have no idea what it is, and you have no memory of pissing off an eight-foot tall robot.What do you do?
>>19707845Holster weapon."Oh good, Kirika hasn't killed and butchered you and scattered your body parts over a square mile. Yet."
>>19707845Nice robot. You're not dead, good.I'm here for ordinance.
>>19707845>>19707874this then We need guns. Big guns, small guns, gun with spread.
"Neat. How much for the mecha? Kirika banged up my last ride, and I could use something more robust. And gun laden."
>>19707845"Hi. Nice to see you too. I could use some artilery and I'm in a bit of a hurry, could ;ya give me a hand?Tab's on QB as usual, but I also have a story you could enjoy."the reasoning here:>we are talking with enthusiastic gadgeter/gunsmith>Kirika is famous for mocking guns as cowardly such>katana bitch went full-on crazy and we are going to off herI'm pretty sure whoever is it here right now, (s)he'll love that story.
>>19707906>>19707874You let out the breath you've been holding and stand a bit more easily, stashing your firearm back into your inventory. You admonish the silhouetted giant in front of you, shaking your head all the while.You could've shot her, you say."But this one was counting on it!" The giant speaks in a completely different voice this time, no longer twisted into a bassy rumble through speaker corruption and more feminine-sounding. "This one was hoping to at least test armor integrity against normal gunfire!" More frustrated grumbling. "Lights on!"The warehouse lights immediately snap into existence, and for a moment you shield your eyes at the sudden harsh illumination from the lamps above. As your eyes adjust, you realize that you've been talking to a gargantuan being in armor - its large shoulderpads nearly forming 70% of its massive bulk, with the rest formed by tree trunk-like legs and arms twice as thick, ending in clawed fists. Its snouted face with the slitted crimson eyes reminding you of some sort of robot elephant, with tusks growing on either side of its maws. Painted in terrifying black and covered in bronze symbols and skulls...you're not sure what to think of it.
>>19708076>its large shoulderpads nearly forming 70% of its massive bulkWAAAAARRRD!!!
>>19707706Previous threads here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Quest>>19708076... Why are we meeting a Space Marine in Terminator Armour, Deculture?
It's then that pressure seals around the grotesque helmet hiss out, and is lifted up and over by two gloved hands sprouting out from the hole it's been covering. The helm falls to the ground in a heavy thunk, and from its vacated spot, you see a familiar brown-haired girl with sleepy umber eyes.She smiles at you like a pleasant dream."Murderface! You have not visited this one for a while! Look, I have almost restored full functionality on this suit of armor you took out from your shield!" Ah. Yes, you remember now. You were trying out what else you could pull out of your shield, once, and instead of a firearm, it gave you a large metal container fifteen feet wide and just as tall. The container had strange symbols inscribed upon it, and it crushed a nearby car underneath its weight.You gave it to this girl to investigate. Turned out to be mobile power armor of some sort, and she's been hard at work at making it battle-ready for you ever since.You forgot what her real name actually was, but she likes to be called Misaka for some reason. "So! This one has been called by our favorite boss! You are having trouble with Kirika-san, yes? Need better hardware, yes?" She says as the front of the armor opens at the chest, and you see her scrunched up into a sitting position, her arms and legs clamped tight with machinery. Probably the controls for the limbs and such. With clicks and hisses, she unlatches herself from the interface and hops out, wearing her usual work clothes - a blue mechanic's jumpsuit, with grease stains here and there. "Just tell this one what you need, and she will supply you! "Well, if you say it like that...What do you ask her to get for you? You can ask her for two long firearms and one extra sidearm. Grenades and explosives should be alright.
>>19708110well, that kinda explains that one time we pulled a Storm Bolter from the shield thingy
>>19708115Big gun with the highest muzzle velocity she has.
>>19708132Make it a sniper rifle. And maybe a submachine gun for backup, in case we have to go up close with anyone.
>>19708115A Shotgun just in case, I'm thinking an AA-12.A sniper rifle in a high caliber, I'm not too picky on this one though I'd like an Arctic Warfare.For a sidearm an Obrez would be fun. But we might want something more versatile and go for a glock or a machine pistol.
>>19708115>"So! This one has been called by our favorite boss! You are having trouble with Kirika-san, yes? Need better hardware, yes?"Is she Russian? The speak pattern seems a bit similar to someone... I have this feeling she's gonna call us "malinka maja" any second now.
Definitely a sniper rifle of some sort, maybe something as big as a barrett, designed for cutting through armor and the like, with some x-ray/infra goggles or something. Honestly, I think our initial plan of sniping her off the tower wouldn't have worked since she's too freaking fast, but if we can nail her through a wall she wouldn't see that coming. Then for back-up, SMG sounds alright, AA-12 also might be an idea for full on bullet spray. Oh, and if we don't want to use the golden DEagle, we do need another handgun.
>>19708115>and one extra sidearmPP19 "Bizon", Makarov 9mm variant (64 shots magazine), loaded with hollow point ammo.
>>19708115> suit of armor you took out from your shield!Oh fuck, what were we drinking that night?> two long firearmsMilkor MGL 6-shot grenade launcher. Frag, teargas and WP/napalm rounds. Supression?Browning .50cal machinegun. Incendiary, M23 rounds. For long-range "sniping".> one extra sidearmPPSh-41, 71 round drum mags. High rate of fire.Smoke grenades, tear gas grenades, flashbang rounds.Gas mask, spare filters, NVG goggles.Thoughts?
>>19708224>Shpagin>sidearmYou mean pistol-grip, short-barrel one?Because in the usual setup, the thing is a bit clumsy for a sidearm.
>>19708224We blast her with the Browning from 1km away, if that don't work, close in and pepper her with WP rounds to set her on fire, toss frag grenades to shred her.If she closes in, teargas and flashbang her to confuse, and let the PPsh rip.Fall back with smoke grenades with the NVGs on, and pray we don't get diced.
>>19708115A grab bag of grenades, frag, white phosphorous, flashbang, tear gas.Gas mask, night vision goggles, rappelling gear, we might not need it but it could be useful.
>>19708115One compact(short barrel) marksmen rifle.One mag or drum fed full auto shotgunP90 for our sidearm.>>19708255this also
>>19708242Well, there isn't much to use for a sidearm, so I guess an SMG could fill the spot. Technically, if she gets close enough so we have to use the sidearm, we're pretty screwed.The PPsh was known for it's high fire rate and controllability.I dunno, either we go for high RPM or buckshot, which don't often appear as "sidearms". An FN-P90? Spectre M4? Auto Glock?
>>19708115AA-12 auto combat shotgun and a 20mm Anzio sniper rifle. Sidearm: FN P90.
>>19708297>either we go for high RPM or buckshot,What about both? Automatic shotgun of sorts?Shpagin's alright, but I'd say that Uzi / Bison / P90 are more suitable for the role here.I'd take PPSh as the only versatile gun if we had to pick just one (well, not really, I'd take good ol' AK, but it's up there too), but not as dedicated short range firearm.
>>19708173Nah, Misaka is a clone from rail gun. The way she speaks is sort of weird because her and her "sisters" narrate their actions and speak a strange mix of formally and in third personThe original girl she is cloned from doesn't speak weirdly and isn't Russian
>>19708173No, she's a SISTER from A Certain Scientific Railgun. Narrating her actions and occasionally speaking in the third-person is a verbal quirk shared by the Misaka's.
>>19708224alternate loadout:> two long firearmsBarrett 82A1 50BMG Semi Auto, normal sniping.Rheinmetall MG3 general-purpose machine gun.> sidearmBrügger & Thomet MP-9 submachine gun.Same explosives and stuff.
>guns suggestionsGuys, I guess there is a way to sort this out so everyone could be happy...>>19708115"Well, what's the biggest piece yoou have here?"
>>19708372"and can you stick extra 'nade launchers on it?"
>>19708224 >>19708163 >>19708151You give her what you think sounds like a nice list of tools that might be able to give Kirika pause, and Misaka's eyes light up as you rattle off the list. In contrast to the katana-wiedling psycho killer, you've always agreed with the arms dealer-slash-tinkerer - she not only adores the gun and all of its permutations, but reveres it to the point of worship, sometimes. You've heard her gush about how this triggering mechanism is so sublime that it's comparable to making love, and how the sight of a properly field-stripped AK-47 is enough to send her into paroxysms of delight....You hang out with the strangest people."Yes, yes, something long range! Something that strikes from afar, so far that Kirika-san would not be able to figure out where the round that reduces her face into goulash came from! Haha! Oh, have waited for long time for this!"You also remember that Kirika's earned the ire of Misaka once or twice. One of the times being Kirika slashing a particularly-cherished piece of the arms dealer's into pieces - an antique Chicago Typewriter that Misaka had spent three month's salary on.Needless to say, Misaka was livid then."Ah! Just the thing!" The brown-haired girl scrambles toward what you see is a pile of large instrument carrying cases - cellos, guitars, the sort you need two hands to carry around - and she pulls out from the pile a rather underwhelming clarinet case, four feet long, two feet high, and around half a foot thick. It looks undersized, even.
>>19708372That'll be the Terminator armour.Golden katana vs ancient power armour. Who will win?> Whoever wins, one results in us getting sliced in half.
>>19708404"Anzio 20mm Takedown Rifle! Misaka just received it from great land of Americas! Customized it a bit so recoil is not so much!" She grins as she tosses the case at you, and you are nearly knocked down by how heavy it is. Well, you weren't expecting it to be that heavy. "Is disassembled, but is easy to put together! Misaka has incendiary rounds prepared for that, too, so is okay!"Well, you know how to put a rifle together, so you can manage with that at least. You watch as Misaka gets you the rest of the things you requested - an FN P90 with three extra magazines, and four flashbangs and grenades each. "Ah, of course, there is question of backup," Misaka says as she piles your equipment into your arms, a thoughtful expression on her face. "Kyuubey-san says is not really compulsory, but if Murderface wants, Misaka can come along and take up sniper duty. Murderface can then engage Kirika-san up-close, lure her into kill-zone, and then Misaka will take the shot!"That's...actually not a bad idea, and you're the expert on bad ideas.How do you reply?
>>19708357>>19708173To explain further, in railgun, there is one thousand of Misaka's sharing a hivemind with a loli queen at the top. They are good to do calculations, have very mild electricity power, good with technology, speak of themselves at the third persons, and act as world-wide spy, even though they don't know that.Every one of these qualities can not make it to the MGNQ universe, however. Until prowed otherwise, his Misaka is not exactly the same than the Railgun's Misaka.
>>19708409"Alright. You're in. But you better not try any funny business on me."
>>19708409we're taking her help. Swordbitch is hopped up on crazyflesh++ and we're not dying herebe sure to get deagle ammo too
>>19708409Sounds good. If she misses her first shot we might not be able to keep Kirika from getting to her sniper nest, though.
>>19708409This could work, our time stop advantage is lessened when using a sniper rifle as bullets freeze once they exit the barrel. Do we know how good a shot Misaka is, if she's damn good than go for it, we ought to be able to slow Kirika down a bit by the time we get to the kill-zone, enough that she can turn her entire torso into a fine mist.Since we're not lugging around a fucking anti-material rifle we should be able to bring the AA-12 or a similar automatic shotgun with.
>>19708427No... Kirika has time dilation. Is Mikasa badass enough to snipe the driver of a speeding car?We have time stop.But I have a cunning plan. We lure Kirika in an maze-like plaza. The plaza is packed with upwards-facing Claymores. Mikasa is hidden far away on machinegun duty.We are the lure. When Kirika appears, she gets sprayed with Hitler's buzzsaw while we try to shoot her too. She's distracted, then the plaza explodes while she's busy dodging bullets and not the claymores.
>>19708409Is she going to be able to keep up with a time-dilation using Kirika? We can because of our Time Stop (as long as we know to activate it), but Misaka probably can't keep up.
>>19708456The maze-like plaza is to lure Kirika in, she would think we set this up so we could have an advantage on a straight-up shootfest.It isn't. The maze is rigged with claymores. Both we and Mikasa are distractions.But Kirika has Yakuza friends. Hmm.
>>19708409Acquire claymores, a lot of claymores, duct tape nails and ball bearings to the front of them to make the cloud of death even nastier, even with time dilation she can't really find away around it if we set it up right.
>>19708456ah, the good old MG42>>19708471I'm liking this plan. Yakuza are buzzsaw bait
>>19708474>>19708471>>19708456I'm sold for the claymore overkilling.Yes, that's what, one or two undreds civilian casualty? But sometimes you must do what you must do.
>>19708471Kirka might have a friend that's prescient. We need a counter for that.We'll get Kyoko and Miami to kill her if she anticipates the plaza trap. But how?
What's going on here?
>>19708515It depends on if her friend made a contract to be prescient. If she did, then we have to contend with an opponent who can see the future as well.
>>19708492I'm not entirely sold on the idea of causing massive civilian casualties. That's one of the reasons QB decided to retire Kirika; it'd be counter-productive to retire her, only to have ourselves retired.
>>19708605QB is retiring her because she killed the principal repeatedly not because she killed civviesOn that note going full murder machine is a bad idea since that puts us on the same path Kirika did with the flesh and craziness
>>19708638I'd say we can justify a few civ deaths in the face of a magical girl rampage.We might have ~18 more golden weapons to collect, dying here would be terrible.
>>19708456 >>19708441 >>19708427You consider her suggestion for a moment, before nodding. You might as well get her help to even things out. While you certainly prefer working alone, there's definitely some merit to having the best sniper in Kyuubey's agency giving you overwatch. Taking Kirika out on your own is certainly attractive, but as there's quite the high risk of having a meter or so of gold steel shoved into your spine, you'd need all the help you can get..She takes the rifle off your hands, as she'll be the one in sniper duty. Misaka then rummages a bit more in the overstocked warehouse for a fitting replacement for your arsenal, when you bring up the idea of setting up a claymore trap or two for Kirika. She blinks at this, and nods."Well, Misaka has considered that too. Kirika-san is very fast, and has time dilation, yes? Luring her into claymore trap will be challenging a bit. She is very canny, that one, and she will not enter any place that she knows would be rigged - unless, of course, we have really good lure." She shrugs. "Is attractive plan, though! Misaka has enough claymores to start war!"Your tinkerer friend has a good point. Even in her crazed state, right now, Kirika has excellent nerves - you could call her the most paranoid of the agency if you weren't trying to get that title for your own, too.
>>19708665"Misaka does not think Kirika-san will just enter plaza like that with sole purpose of hunting Murderface. But...is Murderface suggesting we use Kirika-san's friend as lure?" Misaka puts on her own night vision goggles, three slits of green light replacing her glowing brown eyes. "Kidnapping is reprehensible, Misaka admonishes."Kidnapping has always been an option, but it's not something you'd really entertain unless it was needed. Mikuni Oriko...even if she was friends with Kirika, you're loathe to involve a civilian in Magical Girl business.It's then that a beeping sound cuts the silence, and Misaka blinks as she rummages in her pockets, pulling out a battered analog model. She holds it up to her ear, and pales immediately at what she hears."Is Kyuubey," She says. "Calling Misaka just in case you are here, already. Says that Kirika did attack Murderface's apartment. Kirika-san...Kirika-san took Mami-san."This just gets better and better.How do you proceed?
>>19708675Condition of Iori and the other one?Bit suspicious taking Mami when we suspect her of intercepting the dossier.
>>19708471Ah, well, we get someone to watch over Misaka in case her position gets rustled. Kyoko might do, since she does have a grudge. Don't get Mami yet, we don't know if she can be trusted.We'll have to keep an open radio link in case anything happens.We'll toss 'nades like candy to make Kirika look at 'em and dodge.Once Kirka is in the kill area, we flashbang her (she cannot help but look), timestop(?) and walk to a shielded safe spot, maybe underground. Safe spot has an claymore at the entrance, once we're past, we trigger the explosion with a remote.Pinky might betray us, let's hope the concussion and optic overload from the flashbang is enough to disorient Kirika when we hide.
>>19708675That murderwhorebitchcuntfuckfaceslut, she took my pancake supplier. We don't actually need to kidnap Oriko at this point, have one of our "friends" take her out to the amusement park, a cafe or some shit like that and tell Kirika that we have her friend and she's struggling to hold a brick of explosives at arms reach because letting it drop means it goes kaboom.We use this for leverage while tracking down her location, lure her into a trap and kill her.
>>19708675Right. Get the other two to get Iori somewhere safe AWAY from the little mutant fucker so he doesn't pull his "you can save her" shtick on Iori.Get Oriko take her to Kirika with a gun to her head and trade her for Mami. When Kirika drops her guard to make sure her friend is safe we get Misaka to out a 20mm fuck you to her head
>>19708675Oh shit. Grab smoke, flashbangs, auto-shotguns, machineguns, NVGs, nades, the works, call up Kyoko and Sayaka, get Misaka inside the power armour, let them be the "surprise team" while we try to "negotiate" and buy time, swear we'll eat angels, whatever.Teargas the place, bust through the windows, flash the fuckers. Kill everything that moves. They bust in as we talk.Or we counter by nicking Oriko. Hostage swap not on good faith.
>>19708675Kidnapping is reprehensible, but a murderous rampaging magical girl is worst. We won't do anything bad to her. We just want to scare our little brute.>>19708716I'm not sure at all. Even a friendly walk in a park put whatever "friend" we have in a big risk. If he is found, he will only hopes to die quickly.>>19708697Agreed. Mami is suspicious. She's maybe innocent of wrongdoing, but having been kidnapped just after we suspect her to be a traitor is a little convenient, isn't it ?
>>19708675No wait, we have a leak. Tell QB first, then we assemble the people we trust. Misaka was here the entire time, probably trust her first.
>>19708763We already told QB about the leak. We haven't told him we suspect Mami, though.
>>19708761I see it more as she offered herself as a hostage so that the others didn't get hurt.Iori would be her main concern there since Kirika is faster than any of the three of them and she is defenseless so Kirika could easily skewer her.I find it more likely than she is the traitor
>>19708769It's murderin' time.We called Kirika from home didn't we? She tracked our location from our call. Wring all details from QB.Get Misaka to gather the killteam and we drive somewhere unrelated to negotiate for the hostage.While we negotiate, our techs are getting their location, someone will track down where the call's coming from, it's likely a feint. Killteam gets ready for hostage rescue: >>19708745
Guys, I don't like this.Why she would kidnap armed and experienced Mami instead of the innocent, harmless and obviously revering us Iori?Let's call Kyouko, just in case
>>19708822Mami gave herself up to protect Iori.Also she doesn't believe we care about anyone, Mami is the exception because we like her and she makes us pancakes
>>19708761 >>19708740 >>19708716You finish stuffing the P90, the set of grenades and flashbangs and the extra ammunition into your inventory - before you grab Misaka's cellphone. The arms dealer gives you a sour look, but shakes her head and continues to look for a suitable shotgun you could use as you interrupt Kyuubey in mid-sentence, asking him what the hell happened."Matsuda...? I've been trying to call you the entire time. What happened to your cellphone?"You tell him."Take better care of your things. I'll have to requisition another one for you." A sigh, before the Incubator resumes, all business and yet carrying none of the urgency of the situation whatsoever. "Sakura Kyoko called around ten minutes ago. She said that Mami had locked her in with Iori in your apartment while she stayed outside to guard the entrance, saying something about taking care of Kirika if she decided to do something foolish."A pause. "Kyoko then heard an altercation taking place outside your apartment door. She heard several rifle shots, and Kirika screeching something about...she didn't specify, but she said that you know exactly what she'd be screeching about. I don't know what that is, but if you'd like to clarify, I'm all ears."You tell him that you'll explain later."Right. In any case, Kyoko rushed out to help, but Kirika seems to have fled the scene with Mami. What she found was Mami's discarded rifles and bloodstains. I think it's reasonable to assume that this was an abduction."No shit.How do you reply? Do you tell Kyuubey of your suspicions? What do you request?
>>19708841That's why it would be so horrible if she betrayed us
>>19708865This is getting out of hand.Explain him the plan and ask for eventual advice.QB can be cunning at times, right?
>>19708865Don't reveal our suspicions of betrayal as of yet, I don't trust Kyubey with them. Theorize to Kyubey that Mami went with her to make sure that Iori remained safe as she is a big softy.Give him details on the plan, kidnapping, claymores, overwatch with the 20mm Anzio, luring into a kill-zone. See if he has any advice, caveats or suggestions for location of the operation. Get some important details wrong, if he's not betraying us his advice will still be helpful, if he is this means Kirika will prepare for a different threat and we can exploit that.
>>19708865Tell him it's possible that Mami intercepted the dossier, that Kirika has gone absolutely batshit insane, and that our current plan could get very fucking messy if we don't get some more backup. Someone that keep Kirika in one place for a few seconds would be grand.
>>19708865Tell him nothing. If he really wants to know say it was the same thing she just screamed at us probably.Request that the other two turn up to help escort Mami and Iori out of the fight and for help control Oriko since we are taking her as a trade
>>19708865"Were there any demands? Assemble a killteam to recover Miami, time is of essence. Kirika's likely to convert Miami to some screeching psycho. Kirika can track down locations of phonecalls, don't tell her that.She probably wants me, too. I'll call her from one of our locations known that's her. It'll a trap for her if she investigates. Track down Kirika and Oriko when I make the call."Rig the location to be watched and with claymores, Kirika's likely to look for us. Never mention to Kirika we found out how she found our apartment.
>>19708892Don't bother with the old plan, we have to go to her now, she has Miami.>>19708912It's likely Krika's trying to turn Miami into some Valkyr shit, flesh of fallen angels, whatever. We have to get her back before that happens.If we find her, we use Oriko as a bargaining chip if Kirika doesn't want us.Ask Kyoko if we still have the captured soul gem in the glass of whiskey in our apartment. Kyoko is to hide Iori somewhere unknown, don't call directly, Kirika can trace calls.
>katana bitch took Mamipossible reasons:1) Wants to use her to lure us into melee (maybe because she had another Pinky visit and now takes collecting golden weapons seriously).2) Wants to also get her into whatever stuff she's taking herself.3) Mami was the rat and this is just the way to get out of suspicion.
Let's take the short route:- locate the crazy bitch,- lure her into open, presumably with a challenge- let Masaka do the sniping - she's the best shot in the city (well, second, but you're stuck with the baove part )
>>19708942>>19708923"Yes, in fact." There seems to be a bit of hesitation in Kyuubey's voice as he continues. "I got the call from Kirika herself after Kyoko's. She wants you to meet her alone in Mitakihara Tower One's Helipad. Something about finally settling a very old score between the both of you. Mami will be with her, no doubt as a lure." The Incubator clears his throat. "Now, I'm not too sure how you're going to handle this, Matsuda, but I will impress upon you that Mami Tomoe is an important part of this agency. If you can, please try to ensure her safety. As for Kirika, your assignment still stands. She needs to be retired, and the actions she's taken thus far should prove that it's justified."Yes. Of course. Consider your ass covered, you bastard mutant cat."I've asked Sayaka to get to your place and provide overwatch just in case Kirika tries anything else. I would also suggest not involving Mikuni Oriko in this situation - she'd probably just complicate things at this point, and you don't want another civilian getting caught up in this."Misaka interrupts your conversation by raising what appears to be an AA-12 Shotgun and two of its drum magazines. You nod at her and turn away slightly, missing the arms dealer's gleeful grin as she lovingly rubs the gun's barrel on her cheek."I'll leave you to your plans, then, Matsuda. In the meantime I'll see what I can do about this leak. Good luck, and good hunting."There's a click as Kyuubey severs the connection, and you glower down at the cellphone.This wasn't the way you envisioned things to go at all.How do you proceed from here?
>>19708115Just when I thought this quest couldn't get any better, Misaka clones. Deculture, you are the best person ever.
>>19709059Get Oriko. We need a hostage to ensure she doesn't just kill Mami. Ask Kyoko to go with us to hold onto Oriko.Get Misaka set up with a side on shot of the helipad and have her ready to turn Kirika's head into mince the moment it is clear
>>19709059Misaka loev gun
>>19709059Ok, we'll want to set up Misaka at a good sniping post to give overwatch on the helipad. We'll obviously not want to take the first couple obvious choices as Kirika isn't dumb enough to leave those unattended. Once Misaka is set up and can give us a sitrep we can make our next move. Kyubey has a point, this is already enough of a clusterfuck without turning it into a double hostage mexican magical girl standoff. I'm willing to bluff that we have Oriko or hold her in an offsite location, but we are not going to bring her to the meet.
>>19709059Send Misaka off to find a sniper nest, but not a blaringly obvious one. And tell her to keep an eye on Mami as well as Kirika; fuck the cat, if Mami tries anything stupid, she loses a leg.
>>19709059why aren't we better friends with Misaka?>>19709059Misaka has a 3 mile range on said rifle, find a building with good target coverage at least a mile away.then this >>19709074
>>19709097I think we are about as good friends with her as we can be with anyone.She and Mami are on the same level for different reasons
If I may, there's something that bugs me.MG's bodies are supposed to regenerate, right?Then, the very moment we're in her sight, Kirika is going to go full berserk on us, disregarding the bullets and slashing us in half.Her gimmick is also time so I'm not sure If timestop is going to work. I guess It will end up in bloody mess, with both girls trying to hit enemy's soulgem.Now here's the actual problem. Why isn't Kyouko's eye regenerating?
>>19709105Nah she flips between extremely controlled and batshit insane.Her power is time dilation or slow time where our power is stop time. It is just a matter of who goes firstAs for going berserk, we don't feel pain and we regenerate faster but things like a 20mm shell through the head will still put her down unless pinky decides to assume direct control
How about we go at Kirika, with a sword and request for a fair fight?Then, we she agrees, we shoot her soulgem dead?We know where she keeps her soulgem, right?
>>19709116Assuming we hit her dumb head first.Anime Iaijutsu is a scary thing
>>19709097We only have only two things in common, a love of guns and work. Our personalities otherwise are markedly different. For example Penn and Teller have one of the best friendships in show business and they attribute this to the fact that outside of magic and politics they don't do much together. Also we aren't all that good at relationships of any kind. Aside from Mami she's probably the best friend we have. Mami is our off work pancake wench and Misaka is our guns and work girl.
>>19709136>Then, we she agrees, we shoot her soulgem dead?Read more than the first line of the post next time, k?
>>19709097Let a magical girl go with Misaka and watch her back. Either Kyoko or Sayaka. Misaka's sure to be rushed by Yakuza goons.The remaining one holds the captured soul gem safe. Our apartment's location is compromised, Iori should be taken to another location. Get QB to send some minions to move our stuff somewhere safe.See if we have Oriko's location. If we do, set up a hostage exchange/fight. We'll lure Kirika to take Mami to a place where we trapped it beforehand. Otherwise, we'll have to meet at the helipad.
>>19709142It'd be a good idea to give her someone yeah, but if she's 1-2 miles away you wouldn't even hear the gunshot.That someone could help us not get our head cut off.
>>19709059Don't call Kirika from the warehouse, we already have our apartment's location rustled.
I think we should have some flash bang and incendiary grenade handy
>>19709183>flashbangsThat's... a great idea and we should've think of that sooner
>>19709190She has inbuilt shades though.Not sure they work like that, but it would be hilarious.
>>19709183We already got flashbangs, I suggested White Phosphorus nades earlier though I don't think we got any.
>>19709158She can just send Yakuza to lie in wait in all possible sniping positions, swarm in and shoot Misaka dead, regardless if the shot is heard. She did use Yakuza against us before in the bar, remember? Misaka's not magical, she's gonna die.As for the fight, don't worry. We can fight one-on-one and win.> claymore trickCan magical girls regenerate? If yes, we agree to fight with honour. Get Krika in, and ignite packs of claymores strapped to our body and hope we don't break too many bones.> corpse explosion trickWe have a spare body in storage right? Does her legs work? We're liches. We pack our innards with explosives, lure Kirika in for a true one-on-one, toss our soul gem away and ignite our explosives.Our soul gem is then transferred to the spare body.
>>19709212oh shit, I thought she was. Cover her then.and her get that armor working after this mission.
>>19709212NOPEWe are not doing that.
>>19709212Misaka's got a few tricks, I'm sure she can handle some mooks. If not, there's always more Misaka's around.
>>19709059>You nod at her and turn away slightly, missing the arms dealer's gleeful grin as she lovingly rubs the gun's barrel on her cheek.we should a have a drawing of the scene.. we totally should
>>19709212I see several problems with the corpse explosion trick, most noticeably the fact that since Kirika can slow down time, and our new body wouldn't have access to our old body's time stop shield, as soon as we grabbed the Soul Gem to throw it to safety, Kirika would slow down time and cut our Soul Gem in half.Also, the amount of explosive required to destroy Kirika's Soul Gem will also be enough to destroy ours as well, so the Claymore Trick won't work, nor the idea of throwing our Soul Gem to safety; throwing a Soul Gem over the railing of the 60th floor of a skyscraper is not conducive to its survival.
Not wearing modified suicide vest with deadman switch and all. when fighting melee opponent I mean we can leave our gem else were right? as long as it doesn't shred us into hamburger like it will hopefully do to everything around us we would get better. i'd like some sort of fuck you backup plan.also if mami is working with her how good is mami at sniping?
>>19709212>strapping claymores to your bodyThat's just pain bad idea.Unless you're playing Malkavian, the it's plain bad idea totally in character.
>>19709091 >>19709074 >>19709068You give Misaka her cellphone back just as you take the AA-12 and both its ammo drums off of her hands. You tell her to call Sayaka and have her meet the both of you on the way to Mitakihara Tower One. You figure Kyoko would be enough to secure Iori - and at the very least, you'll be able to get a few last-minute pointers from the agency's sword expert.Misaka eagerly obeys as you do your best to cram the fully-automatic shotgun and the spare ammo into your inventory. You glance at the now-deactivated suit of armor in the middle of the warehouse, and you ask Misaka if it's at all serviceable now."Ah, no, will not be for a few more weeks, or so," Misaka replies as she pulls her phone away from her ear - and you could faintly hear Sayaka spitting out some of the foulest language you've ever heard her say. Probably didn't like the fact that she was going along for the ride. "Still have to scrub systems and hook up armaments! On its own, still useless!"You let out a sigh. Could've been handy, but you have to make do with what you've got.You're ten minutes into the hour before you're supposed to confront Kirika on top of the Helipad as you and Misaka finally make your way out of the warehouse. The arms dealer replacing the fallen helm onto the suit of armor and giving it a small kiss goodbye as she does so. Both of you pile into the taxi cab you've procured, and Misaka secures her seatbelt just as she cuddles the case containing the Anzio to her chest."Is adventure! Misaka cannot wait to shoot people!"You hang out with the strangest people, but they sure can be nice even when they're weird.You start up the car and peel off back into the main road.
>>19709231Claymores are directional explosives throwing metal pellets, it might work. Maybe.As for tossing our soul gem, didn't think of her slicing our gem in half, yeah, loose that idea.
>>19709212We are semi liches. Shit still hurts and destroyed limbs don't grow back>>19709233Soul gem must be ON our body, when we took Emi's soul gem more than a couple of feet from her she dropped into suspended animation
all this and we still haven't been able to interrogate Midori.
>>19709324No time for fun when shit's going down
>>19709267Twenty minutes into the hour, and you reach Mitakihara's Business District. You spot a blue-haired girl in her magical girl uniform sitting despondently on a bus stop bench, chin propped up on her gloved hands. You pull up in front of her and screech to a halt, jerking your thumb in the direction of the back seat. She shoots you a dirty look, before getting in through the passenger door - and as she pulls the door close, it's then that she gives the back of your seat a kick as you drive back into the main road."This. Is. All. Your. Fucking. FAULT, Murderface. If anything happens to Mami, I'll gut you like the pig you are.""Ah! Language please, Sayaka-san! We do not appreciate such words? Right, Murderface?""Shut up, nerd, I wasn't talking to you!"Sayaka's understandably upset. Besides Kyoko, she's been quite taken with Mami, to the point that she often consults the blonde about anything and everything."If you hadn't fucked up wasting Kirika just like you were fucking TOLD to, Mami wouldn't have been involved! CAN'T YOU DO ANYTHING RIGHT, YOU DRUNKEN PIECE OF SHIT?"How do you react?
>>19709332"If someone hadn't informed Kirika she was up for retirement everything would have gone a lot smoother."
>>19709345harsh and direct. i like it
>>19709332>If you hadn't fucked up wasting Kirika just like you were fucking TOLD toWho told her?
>>19709233>also if mami is working with herlet's not jump to any conclusions, there are no direct pointers for that - the fact that she picked envelope that should have been delivered "to own hands" might have been simply because she didn't want to wake us up>how good is mami at sniping?how good can flintlock-user be...
>>19709332How do you know about said mission.time stop at the ready please
>>19709332Sayaka, Mami and her pancakes are one of the few things in this world that make me feel an emotion beyond apathy or detest. I am going to kill Kirika, if you want any specific body parts let me know right now.>>19709352I wouldn't be that surprised if at this point in the clusterfuck people were informed of the mission.
>>19709324>Midori.Emi can wait a little while longe.If things go smoothly we might soon have Rin to to keep her company.
>>19709352>>19709363QB, most likely. Or Misaka, when she called up Sayaka to get her as backup.
>>19709363Kirika did say a little blue bird
>>19709377Her informant might have used twitter, for all we know. Still, let's see how Sayaka reacts.
>>19709374She said we fucked up killing her when haven't even tried to yet
>>19709332"I'd save your ire for whoever is leaking mission details. you think I want those pancakes threatened?"
>>19709332"How would YOU know what I was told?"
Why don't you bitch out the looselip that's spewing sensitive information to the general community like a FUCKING MOLE instead?
>>19709394And she's saying that if we hadn't messed around and just gotten the job done, this wouldn't have happened.As in, if we had actually fought and killed Kirika in the bar instead of letting her get away.
>>19709332Does nobody use our name? How impolite.
>>19709394>>19709431She is awfully accusing when not even Misaka knows the full details of the situation.Pop the question, Matsuda. The voices in your head demand it!
Sayaka being the rat would be actually the best possible outcome. Because if that was the case, she already realised how stupid idea it was, and can be quite possibly redeemed in a way that doesn't involve Soul Gem shattering .
>>19709453Too easy a way out.We hate her, she hates us it doesn't give us any longer term problems with killing herNow if we found out that QB told Kirika then it would be interesting. Or if Mami tried to get Kirika to run by telling her she was being targeted
God dam you, your horrible hours, and your awesome quest, Deculture! I was doing something before! Not anymore, though.
>>19709452 >>19709345As she kicks the back of your seat again, it's then that you realize that no glib reply or deadpan snap will get her to stop. You're already not in the best of moods with how badly your conversation with Kirika at the bar went - now with a possible mole in your agency AND one of the few friends you have left in this godforsaken world in mortal danger, you are dangerously close to snapping.You stomp hard on the brakes - causing Misaka to squeal in alarm, clutching the Anzio's case to her tightly, and Sayaka to hit the head rest of your seat with her face, getting some choice expletives out from the blue-haired girl - and it's then that you storm out of the beaten-up cab. It takes you only a split second to throw the passenger door open and grab Sayaka by the brooch securing her cape around her neck. It takes another to tug her out of the car and onto the sidewalk.
>>19709544The golden Desert Eagle is already in your free hand at this point, and you have the mouth of its barrel kissing Sayaka's forehead even before she'd pulled herself up to a sitting position, a sword already in her hand."A-ah, Murderface, Sayaka-san, maybe this is not the time--" Misaka calls hesitantly, feebly.You interrupt her by asking Sayaka through gritted teeth - the frustration welling over and clearly evident in your face, the most emotion you've displayed ever since you realized Iori was staying with you for two months - how she found out about the exact details of Kirika's retirement.She looks up defiantly at you, then at the gun pointed right at her face, and a small drop of sweat makes its way down her cheek. She remains silent.You continue by telling her that in no uncertain terms are you more than willing to pull the trigger and decorate the sidewalk with her brains if she does not tell you posthaste. Misaka tries to dissuade you again, clearly disturbed at how this fragile camaraderie between Magical Girls is already falling apart - when Sayaka's eyes widen up at you."M-Murderface. Your eyes...what the fuck is wrong with your eyes? Why are they going black?"How do you respond?
>>19709549Drop the gun.Walk away.Right now.
>>19709549"Because of those fucking pills, never fucking mind"then leave her and do our thing
>>19709549FUCK.Pull the gun away from her head and turn away and start walking. This shit will not happen, we will not lose control and we will not give that pink haired whore the satisfaction of making us into her puppet.Tell Sayaka and Misaka to get going and set up in a good sniping position. We will discuss how she found out the exact details of our assignment after we finish dealing with the threat to our best friend and pancake supplier
>>19709549Ask Misaka, without moving the DEagle from Sayaka's head, if she informed Sayaka over the phone the details of Kirika's retirement.If Misaka says no, have her call up QB right the fuck now, and ask him if he told Kyoko or Sayaka the details. Because if Sayaka's the leak, I want to take her Soul Gem right now for later disciplining or retirement.Above all, regain control over our emotions.
>>19709549Stop, lower the gun, and take a deep breath.
>>19709568Shouldn't we find out now, if Sayaka is a security threat, before we leave her alone with Misaka?
>>19709549I am having a VERY bad day, Sayaka. There's a MOLE in my gang, some WHORE with a katana shit the bed and now I'm stuck cleaning it up, and now you expect me to put up with your stalkerdyke bitchfit? NO. That is not how this game works, Sayaka.All at maximum volume.
>>19709549Holster golden desert eagle, tie it down if we have to, and use the another gun. Pull something out of the shield, anything is better than the deagle.Why are we always using it anyway?"Fucked if I know." Gesture pointedly with a gun that is NOT the deagle. "Better now? Right, who the fuck said I was going after Kirika?"
>>19709549"It means i'm in twitching distance of turning your brain case into a soup bowl. Answer the fucking question."Stand up and put the deagle back in the shield. No need to provoke what is obviously serious shit.
>>19709549Use a different gun and this >>19709569We need to tell boss man about pink. She's targeted two of agents and has a mole in his agency. Telling him would only show we don't want to go crazy and kill everything.Aside from him anyway
>>19709574She is a threat to us not Misaka. And she cares more about Mami than she does Kirika so I am thinking she won't try anything for now.If she was the leak then she was hoping that in whatever fight we got into would kill one of us and cripple the other so she could get rid of two people she despises easily
>>19709549"One of us might have done something really stupid. And we will need to have a talk to about it. But not now. At this very moment, saving Mami and stopping Kiriko takes priority. So you'll either shut up and do your best to help me or get out of my way. The choice is yours."Put off the gun and get back to car, start the engine."So what would it be?"
What I wonder is.Kyoko actually doesn't seem to hate us or at least she seems to keep it pretty well under wraps. So is it that Sayaka hates us because of personality clashes or is it that she thinks we are a threat to her relationship with her girlfriend and Mami?
>>19709613I just assumed she's pretty fucking dense.And Sayaka is a bitch even in the series
First time I catch one of those thread ongoing. I hope I'll manage to read it up before it's over.Also I love how the OP pictures seems to evolve with the quest (although I wonder why this one seems to have regressed back).
>>19709613If we were to go by Madoka canon, Sayaka and Pinky used to be BFFs - back before either of them met QB and joined the whole Magical Girl business... and we are the one that killed Pinky when lost her shit. So maybe she's bitter about that.
>>19709621Yeah but not to this degree. I figure this relates to the whole "we have no memories" bit where either before we did something or since it happened she hates us because she remembers who we wereI always thought she was more emotional than the others in the series as well
>>19709561This. Preferably while trying to calm down.
>>19709627Yeah I thought that might be it but i wasn't sure how much Madoka canon Deculture is using so I wasn't sure whether us killing pinky set it off or not.I figure that may well be the point that polarized everyone's opinion of us though. Mami seems to pity us more than anything, Kyoko is outwardly friendly but like we noticed when we first talked to her she has a real hatred of us getting too close to certain subjects and Sayaka just outright fucking hates usWhat I wonder is how Pinky came back from us killing her
>>19709625terminator version of this required if you drew it good sir
>>19709643I say we keep it up, but use a different gunWe are trusting her with our life in this mission after all
>>19709549>how she found out about the exact details of Kirika's retirement.Didn't Kirika say something about a little bluebird? As much as I want to say I called it, I haven't made it in time for the past couple threads, so I can't really point to anything.
Toss the deagle away.We know it will come back but getting rid of it for now should stop Pinky's hold on us since she shouldn't have that as a linkAlso ask Sayaka what part of us going at insane speeds to help Mami doesn't she understand and just how the hell she knows what our mission was. Not even Kyoko know what it was
>>19709608this, save Mami first, question Sayaka lateralso we need to fucking chill before we develop taste for Spicy Wings from McHeaven
>>19709671Yeah it came to mind a few back but then someone pointed out Oriko has both blue hair and eyes and is prescientIt could be her
>>19709625Where was that picture from? I thought Proto had stopped drawing them for this mainly because it took too long
>>19709680>Toss the deagle away.>We know it will come ...
>>19709685Actually, I don't think there If there's official color of her hair at all
>>19709594 >>19709571 >>19709568>>19709561You blink at this sudden revelation from Sayaka, and you slowly pull the gun from her forehead - before lifting the firearm itself up to your face, peering at your own reflection on the Desert Eagle's polished slide.Your face is a bit distorted, but there's no mistaking it - your eyes have been getting darker. Not just the iris itself - which you had always seen as light purple - but the sclera, too. Sinking slowly into a uniform black, just like Kirika's.You blink, and it's then that you see your eyes go back to their normal color. As if the change had never happened.You turn away from Sayaka as you shove the golden Desert Eagle back into your inventory. You then lift up your now slightly-shaky hand and cover your own eyes with it, trying to calm yourself down. Taking slow, deep breaths.You're not turning into Kirika.You're not turning into a monster.You are not cut out for that kind of psycho bullshit.You're not...right?
>>19709685Well, that's more than I know about Oriko. Care to share?
>>19709704"It was Mami," Sayaka says quietly, obviously shaken as well. "She got your dossier. She didn't want to wake you because you were getting all chummy with that idol of yours. She thought she could help you with your assignment. Didn't know it was a retirement one, and she panicked." She shakes her head. "Called me up right away and asks what to do. Says she doesn't want either of you killing each other. Mami...you know how she is, right? She likes everybody. She likes you, most of all, although I can't even fathom WHY." Sayaka shoots you a dirty look as she gets back to her feet. "She has a history with Kirika too, long before we found your ass in that Witch's Barrier. She thought that if she could tell Kirika beforehand and convince her to get away, maybe you won't pursue her, and no one gets hurt."The blue-haired girl smiles sadly at this. "Obviously wasn't counting on you - and her - being so fucked up that you couldn't let it go. Now all this has happened, and you'll have to forgive me if I say that it's still your own fucking fault, Murderface."Well. Now you know.And you're not all that happy about it.How do you react?
>>19709710Cold like a damn professional.Let's save some Mamies and deal with It later
>>19709710>We were sleeping>Its our fault.We should at least punch her in the face once, and then get on with the mission. Sayaka seems to be ITCHING for a knuckle sandwich
>>19709710This isn't all my fault but more than enough of it is.Let's go. You help Misaka set up to take the shot I will get Mami safe and kill this whore. I know we mutually dislike each other here but there is someone we both care about here so how about we call a truce for the time being and just sort this massive fucking mess out
>>19709710fuck, we can't confirm the truth of that. Ask to see her cellphone call log. ask the boss when the courier arrived with the mission details after that
>>19709710Well, is there a way we could resolve that without killing her?
>>19709731*Care about in danger Keep a lid on the emotions until we can find out what we can do to stop that sort of shit occurring again
Future note: Wrap the Deagle in duct tape until it's a mummy. We're never gonna use this damn thing again. Anyone with me on this? At any rate, shall I create a pastebin for all our future plans?
>>19709710Scream in soul shattering horror.Stop time and ask Pinky-chan what the fuck is happening to us.
Hi OP, I sent you an email.
>>19709736She isn't lying about it now, there's no point.She may be a bitch but she is worried about Mami as well, use that to our advantage for now then we can beat the shit out of her
>>19709710Apologize for the FLIPPING THE FUCK OUT. We need to get Mami quickly and safely away from Krikirwhatsherface. Despite all of the general bitchiness between us and Sayaka, we can agree on that much at least. To do this, we need to initiate the first omen of the End Times and put aside our differences and work together; propose a (temporary) truce with Sayaka for this purpose.We need to go over the plan with her anyway and see where she fits in with all of this. If she can offer any insight on Kirika or what she might be doing with Mami or how we could better execute this plan, that would be a good step forward.
>>19709710we tried talking to Kirika before trying to kill her, we tried to at least see if she really went off the deep end and she attacked us first.if we really hated her as much as Sayaka thinks would we have done that?we can leave out the part about the golden weapons.
>>19709710"Fuck."Get back in the car, finish the job. Call QB, tell him we suspect Kirika's sword has driven her insane. When we face Kirika, get Sayaka to ask her to lose the sword.Then shoot her in the face.
>>19709746Yeah dump the deagle somewhere safe. Take Kirika's sword and do the same. We might not like these things but we need to keep them out of other peoples hands as much as out of ours.Our hand will be forced on killing Kirika with it though, even if we make a concerted effort to not use it as we fire the killing shot it will be there
>>19709704I vote that we never EVER use that golden gun again.If possible the best thing would be to destroy it altogether.
>>19709710Tell Sayaka that the first thing we did was talk to Kirika to see if she really had gone off the deep end. But since she's the one who set Yakuza goons on us first, then tried to carve us up, that really, no, we're not really at fault here.Now, if she'll shut up and do her job, we still have to save Mami and talking here isn't helping anyone except Kirika.
>>19709710I think we need to let her in on pinky, even a little and that Kirika was the one who attacked us when we wanted to talk, imply that a non violent solution wasn't off the table.We should also say that Mami isn't safe, because we've seen what happens when Kirika goes like we just did, with the scary eyes and speaking in voices.
>>19709781We can try but it will always reappear.After all, Pinky isn't going to let us off that easily
>>19709710Let's ask if Misaka has a bunch of Thermite; We'll use it to destroy the gun.
>>19709710>How do you react?*sigh*"We're going for Mami now, okay? I'd like to hear her own version of the story. That means we will have to save her first. As for Kiriko - she's beyond help now. I hope we can agree on that."*breath heavy*"I've had really bad day, even by my standards and it's gonna get worse, so, please, keep talking to the necessary minimum."
>>19709797Probably wouldn't even scratch it.Kirika's sword has been dicing all manner of shit without dulling the edge at all so mundane means of destroying it either won't work or if they do work it will just turn back up next time we go to pull a gun
>>19709802Looks like the "duct tape mummy" plan is the best one. Makes it distinct, and also unusable enough at the same time.
>>19709802on the other hand letting Misaka take look at the Eagle might be good idea (once the crisis is over)
>>19709768"Hi! I think the reason Kirika went nuts and had to be put down is the golden sword she got from the witch that onle she and I can see. Oh, and I have one of those weapons too!"Yeah, I can see that going down real great.
>>19709817Good idea but we don't want her getting attached to it and possibly selling her soul to Pinky for a golden gun as well
Mami's only fault is that she tries to be altruist in noir setting where you cann't ever save everyone.
>>19709820We do need to tell the boss eventually. Pink is corrupting his agents and has mole in his agency. The next golden weapon user that appears and causes a shitstorm is gonna make him look at use even more.Tell him about it now before shit get too far out of control would be best. And show we don't want to go crazy.
>>19709817Keep it a secret from her, or tell her to not trust any golden-gilded weapons. Still, we must duct tape the damn gun so we don't use it. Stuff the handle with duct tape so we don't load it with ammo either.
I agree with NUCKLE SANDWICH FOR SAYAKA.After: "Don't say It's my fault for being asleep and then trying to talk to someone. As far as I'm concerned, this is your fault for letting Mami telling Kiriko."
>>19709833Nah the mole situation was Mami worrying about her friends and trying to avoid a fight and one or more dyingPinky is a worry but if we bring it up to kyuubey then chances are the little shit will just get us retired as a precaution
>>19709833No, we don't. The leak was Mami, as was suspected, so there is no mole. He'll more likely than not have us retired as a precaution as soon as Mami is safe. We're all expendable to him.
>>19709829Well, the bad news is, I don't think we can prevent her from getting attached to it.The good news is, she gets attached to any and every gun, so it shouldn't really matter.
>>19709840Just drop it into resin or molten metal so it gets ruined and is stuck there.A bit harder to do that to the sword but the same principle would still work
>>19709710"...Me?"Give her the most withering look we can manage."Krikia and I met at a bar. We talked, professionally. Then I got Yakuzas' trying to shoot my ass out. Then katana bitch tried to shank me. I confess, that was reason enough to end her. After that, she took Mami."So it's my fault Mami gets nicked? I have standards, part of that consists of not letting my friends get killed. You want to help her?Another look."Then start helping."
>>19709843Retiring us cuts his only reliable link to pink at the moment. Keeping an eye on us but using us to gain intel on her would be more useful.We do not know if Sayaka is telling the truth at this point in time.
>>19709833He can't be trusted period.Unfortunately we don't have anyone we can rely on for this or I'd be all for filling people in and securing allies.If telling him accomplishes anything but hastening our retirement I'd be very surprised.
>>19709860If Pinky is trying to corrupt his agents, then wouldn't it make better sense for him to eliminate those Magical Girls who already have a high chance of turning on him (such as us), rather than waiting for one of his other, more loyal agents that he can manipulate is approached by Pinky?
>>19709860He would rather cut his losses than risk it. Magical girls are dime a dozen after all
>>19709876So we make ourselves useful. We know where the weapons are coming from, right? We might be the key to dealing with them. He can't really consider allowing 19 other batfuck insane magical girls mucking about with shiny weapons, attracting all sorts of attention.
>>19709872Telling him proves our loyalty and current sanity quite well. Hiding it until the next weapon appears and causes a shitstorm doesn't. He already knows we have a golden weapon and he will figure out the link eventually.this >>19709893
>>19709754 >>19709731 >>19709728You let your hand drop from your face, letting out a sigh as you digest what Sayaka had just said. Taking one of the Grief Seeds that Kyuubey had given you in payment for protecting Iori, you press the black thorny bauble against your own Soul Gem, purging the inky darkness already roiling inside the jewel. You replace the Grief Seed back into your Inventory - Kyuubey will want to get it afterwards.So it was Mami, all along. You weren't expecting it, but at the back of your mind, you knew she was the only one who could've done it. Because she was that nice, that uncorrupted, that kind - that believing of the good in other people. Believing in you to let Kirika go. Believing in Kirika to simply leave the city and never come back.You'll have to set her expectations of you straight after you rescue her from Kirika.You turn around slowly and apologize to Sayaka, who blinks in complete surprise and shock at the entire thing. You shock her even further when you suggest a truce between the both of you, at least for now; about how you and her have to work together and get Mami. You'll sort out the details of just what happened later - right now the three of you have a crazy Magical Girl to kill, and the nicest person in your pathetic little lives to save.Sayaka narrows her eyes at you, as if suspecting a trick of some sort, but shrugs. "S-sure, I guess. If Mami's going to be saved, then I'm in." It's then that she grins. "At the very least, it'll give me some practice for the time when I have to retire you."That's a very good joke. You laugh at it as the both of you go back into the cab. Misaka seems to be relieved that everything is settled.How do you proceed now? You have thirty minutes until the meeting takes place.
>>19709908DunnoWe can just skip to that.(We know where Kirika's soulgem is located, right?)
>>19709908We'll need to find some way to drop Misaka off without alerting anyone who might be watching. After that, park a few minutes walk away from the meet and hoof it.
>>19709908We have to stash Misaka in her perch at least.Are we leaving Sayaka to guard her?
>>19709908Hammer out a plan involving where Misaka and Sayaka will be, when to take the shot and what signals to look out for to go ahead, wait or back off entirely>>19709902>>19709893That's true if you are dealing with anyone but KyuubeyThat little fuck has proven to be lazy, uncaring and generally a dick. So if he thinks simpy obliterating us is easier than dealing with having us running around possibly being turned mad he will do it. In Madoka it is pretty much said there are many other ways he could handle things but how he is doing it is the least effort for the most reward and he hasn't shown any indication of being any better in this
>>19709922Somewhere on her. Same as every puella magi
>>19709954Well DUH.I'm asking where exactly CHiaki should be aiming
>>19709956Forehead should work pretty well. We can loot her gem when she's dead.
>>19709949fucking catseven as gods they're lazy
>>19709970Can't argue with that
>>19709908>It's then that she grins. "At the very least, it'll give me some practice for the time when I have to retire you.""Not. Gonna. Happen." then grin as well "Because when I get the warning I'm gonna disappear just like this..." *snap fingers* "so we can both live happily ever after.""Now let's go. Misaka, have you picked a spot that would give you good view to our meeting point?"
>>19709908Reconnaissance of the meeting site.Learn the most we can on the layout, how to keep crazycunt at distance, entry and exit points, etc.Most important point is not to get spotted doing so of course.
>>19709970Our sniper is using a 20mm riflewe can go for a chest shot and the head will still explode
>>19709982That is so out of character it hurts.
>>19709956>I'm asking where exactly CHiaki should be aimingWith a caliber like that, it shouldn't really matter. Even if she doesn't hit the Gem, there's not gonna be much left of Kirikos body.
>>19710009it'd be like the "Bloody Mess" perk in fallout. Even a foot shot should cause them to explode in gore
>>19710002Well, Sayaka said she's gonna retire us someday.We said we'd run away if she tried.Each of these is about as much of a joke as the other.
>>19710027I always loved that perk. Even back in the days when it was a trait I took it instead of the other options
>>19710031To paraphrase: >I can take you down!>Oooh, scary scary.~ There's no way I could win.
Kirika is paranoid and prideful, and an absolute monster in CQC. Our timestop may not even fully stop her, just slow her to manageable speeds.Since she's meeting us at the helipad and has Yakuza goons helping her out, we must assume that she's going to have every perspective sniper place crawling with them. Or that she has even hired snipers of her own to prevent interference with a one-on-one duel with Chiaki. Misaka may have other clones to take her place if she gets gooked, but Sayaka has just one life. I'm not sure if either of them can deal with sniper fire from the rooftops of all the other buildings. She may even keep Mami close to prevent us from using lots of explosives.
>>19710093The sniper rifle that Misaka is using outranges just about any other sniper rifle that the Yakuza could get their hands on. She is going to be a mile away, and not using any of the obvious nearby buildings as sniper positions.
>>19710120there is this.We could also perch her closeby and have her guarded by Sayaka. If she doesn't ned the guard Sayaka could get back to us pretty quickly then.
>>19709994 >>19709935 >>19709930As you take the long way to Mitakihara Tower One - trying not to look as conspicuous as three girls in a cab with its roof nearly shorn off - you try to come up with an impromptu plan with both Misaka and Sayaka and how to approach the meeting. "We go with original plan this one suggested earlier at warehouse, yes?" Misaka pipes up, raising her goggles off her face and onto her forehead to look at you directly. "Drop me off in adjacent skyscraper, probably two or three blocks away, with clear line of sight. Sayaka-san here will be my spotter and guard in case we are detected. Murderface will be lure - you keep Kirika-san busy and preferably stationary! Just give this one three seconds, will ventilate her good!""Nice plan, except for Murderface being the lure part." Sayaka scoffs. "Let's face it, you won't last two seconds with Kirika. Your best bet is to clinch and lock up with her somehow, or stun her long enough for nerd here to take the shot."You remind Sayaka mildly of Misaka's name."...Fine. Misaka it is, Murderface."You let out a sigh. You ask Sayaka, then, if she has any advice for you."For you?" The blue-haired girl blinks, before laughing and taking out a sword from her cape - and tossing it on the cab's dashboard. "I'd say shove this into your gut and spare Kirika the trouble. But as we're working to save Mami here..." She narrows her eyes. "...Watch out when she puts her left foot forward. She wears her sword at her left, right?" Sayaka mimes gripping a sword by her waist. "That's when she'll do her charging move. It'll only last a second, she doesn't telegraph her moves that much, but when you see that, get ready to fucking jump out of the way. Don't even try to block it or anything."
>>19710144So when we see that time stop get behind her and shank her with Sayaka's sword
>>19710120Range doesn't matter if there are obstructions in the way. She may be forced to a nearby spot due to that.
>>19710144this does go with the earlier advice we got about her favoring drawing slashes now.I say we go in with the P90 out instead of the AA12. P90 is very accurate and would be better if she's going to holding out friend.
>>19710144I'm going to enjoy retiring Sayaka. Back to the task at hand. We can try to use some flashbangs to blind Kirika.Ask Misaka if the scope on the Anzio has flash compensation built-in, or if her goggles can compensate.
>>19710144You blink and thank her for that tip, while Misaka seems to hop up and down as you pass by a particularly tall skyscraper - one that is two blocks away from Mitakihara Tower One. "Here! Here! This is good spot! This is good nest! Drop off Misaka and Sayaka-san here!"You glance at Sayaka, and she shrugs. "This is good as place as any. This is kind of the tallest, I think. If you want her as overwatch, then she'll have the best seat in the house." You nod, and kill the engine as all three of you step out. Misaka seems to be really eager at the prospect of setting up the Anzio, bouncing up and down on the balls of her feet as Sayaka lazily stretches her arms. You take off your glasses and polish them on the hem of your costume, putting them back on as you're satisfied.It's then that Misaka hands the both of you headsets. "Ah, before Misaka forgets! Communications, for all three of us! Well, Misaka already has hers here--" She taps her goggles. "--so is for your benefit! Put them on!"The both of you do so, and test them, murmuring expletives to each other quietly. Yeah, they're good. You thank Misaka.
>>19710247Something tells me we won't get that pleasureNot without prodding her towards Pinky and the golden weapons of doom
>>19710330"Misaka will establish overwatch at top floor! Sayaka-san, hurry!" The arms dealer squeals as she runs towards the entrance of the building, and you see Sayaka sigh before shaking her head. "Nerds." She says, before turning towards you. "You'll be alright, then, Murderface?"You're quiet for a moment, before nodding. "Not that I give a shit about you, of course." Sayaka smiles thinly. "But let's go save Mami." She holds out her hand to you.You return the smile, and reach out with your free hand - clasping Sayaka by the wrist, as she does yours.You both let go after a moment before turning your backs on each other. Sayaka following Misaka up into the building, and you making your way towards Tower One on foot."The flesh of fallen angels," You find yourself murmuring.
>>19710144Perhaps have sniper girl wait for Kirika to put her left foot forward and to shoot where we are as Kirikia will likely be there in just a second. There will definitely be a delay between when she fires and the bullet actually gets to us, so hopefully if we can dodge Kirika we can dodge the bullet as well.
>>19710330>>The both of you do so, and test them, murmuring expletives to each other quietly..>hehehehe, dickbutt, hehehehe
still assuming mami isn't half willing hostage hoping to get between us for a happy ending?
>>19710355That's what time stop is for when she does that, when she goes to do it she will be open for a moment we stop time. Shank / blow the hell out of her and we will give Misaka an opening
>>19710372She most likely is but I really doubt she will be able to do anything to stop Kirika once she goes full "flesh of fallen angels" mode
>>19710347Oh deary, we seem to be deteriorating.
>>19710347>"The flesh of fallen angels," You find yourself murmuring.Fuck the flesh of fallen angels. We are doing this for delicious Mami pancakes and getting be to the "quiet" life with Iori.Also cuntface let herself be corrupted by pinky, she failed where we didn't. That will be a good reminder for us in the future.
>>19710347Just caught up. Did we just split the party?
>>19710413Yeah that was planned though, Misaka is a sniper and Sayaka is protecting her. We are heading to kill Kirika and save MamiHaving any more people in close against Kirika is a liability since she can manipulate time
Ribbon Armbars Everywhere!
rolled 2 = 2>>19710408>not a quiet life with Mamiget out
mami restraining people with ribbons?
>>19710408>quiet life with Iori>>19710443>quiet life with Mamiwhy not both?
>>19710443>>19710448Fuck both of you, I want a quiet life with both of them.
rolled 1 = 1>>19710448>>19710443>not a happy, vodka and gun range filled life with MisakaGentlemen, please be rational about this.
>>19710451She does have that ability come to think of it.The question is would she be able to hold both of us with it? Especially if Kirika goes crazy stabby mode again
>>19710478Does Misaka even have a sexualityYou know what I mean
>>19710478>>19710463>>19710473We'll have to buy a bigger bed.
And I think this is a good spot to pause.Sorry about the delays and lack of art. The desktop I draw on has been compromised, and it'll be a while until I can get it back into shape.Thank you for participating!
>>19710478>>19710473>>19710463All three of them then
>>19710487I'm thinking rage of the fallen angels will overpower ribbons >>19710494we'll keep a gun in the bed too
>>19710497Alternatively, we could all just get proper close up in this one.>>19710505Well, shit. Thanks for the fun quest, Deculture. Always a good read.
>>19710494I'm sure she loves to screw.
>>19710505we forgive youas long as you keep our magical girl quota filled
>>19710494In this she seems gunsexual>>19710505All good De, thanks for keeping up the threads while you have the problems
>>19710505Damn suspence.Strangly somewhat glad to hear you haven't been drawing because you CAN'T instead of WON'T.
>>19710518Nah we only have a crappy futon. We would need at least a decent double bed to fit all four of usWe would have to start bathing much more regularly too but I guess Mami and Iori would be dragging us into the shower every night so that would take care of itself.Not in any dirty way of course but as a "we aren't sleeping with you dirty" way
>>19710505Thanks again for the quest, Deculture. You're the best.
>>19710595was doing it but someone beat me to it.he did a better job at the description than me.
>>19710330>Misaka's face when
>>19710572They'd say "Keep clean or sleep in the chair."Which would be a hard choice; Sleep right with the few people we trust at all let alone with our life, or sleep in our favorite fucking chair ever with them in the room.
>>19710505I want to see Sayaka's fae when Misaka pulls out that 7 foot rifle
Misaka on overwatch,
>>19710669I think it would be a 50/50 decision of are we too tired/drunk/grumpy to shower and sleep with the few people we trust even though we might like to
>>19710669>Mami>Iori>gun-nerdthat's not "a few people we trust" that's "all the people we trust"...well, not so sure about Mami after the recent news but, I'm sure she'll behave
>>19710759Why do we trust Iori?
>>19710572Get out MSQ fag. Get out.
>>19710766She masturbates while moaning our name.So yeah
I don't mind the lack of art or waiting days (or even weeks) at a time if the thread delivers each time.Power armour is pushing it though, you guys seem to enjoy your /k/ moments and Homu does like her arsenal, but it sort of detracts from the theme.Personally I'm in it for hard boiled noir style meguca, hoping some of the developments continue to erode that. It's one thing to protect the dames and have a heart of gold under our grizzled, chain smoking exterior, but the moment we start collecting waifus and throwing away the premise for it is the moment I'm out.Which I suppose is more a comment at the players then protoculture who has to frame anon's requests.
>>19710794You make a fine point.
>>19710759Unfortunately I think Mami is too nice to be trusted.Not saying that we should push her away or anything. But we can't trust vital informations to her.tl;dr: Mami is a good friend, not a reliable colleague.
>>19710766Combination of her being of absolutely no threat to us, and that she reminds us of someone we wanted to protect. Not her personality, but that she's helpless and crying.
>>19710795I was getting a little too waifu about MisakaI planned to cut it out next thread already though.
>>19710759I said "THE few people", not "a few of the people".Because three people is not a lot.And yeah, we'll have to reevaluate our trust of Mami.
>>19710822>Mami is a good friend, not a reliable colleague.In that regard, I think Misaka is the only one that fits that bill.
>>19710793Well at least the series this comes from has more justification for sex given the characters are all pretty much hard gay for one another.That said this is after quest random bullshittery that always goes on so stop squealing like a baby>>19710759The only problem we had with Mami here is she didn't want either of her friends hurt.We can trust her on anything but hurting the people she cares about
>>19710841Kyouko would be okay-ish. She is kinda friendly toward us and pretty strong (at least in vanilla universe).
>>19710795>you guys seem to enjoy your /k/ moments and Homu does like her arsenal, but it sort of detracts from the theme.So what, we should cut down on our planning and getting the right tool for the job, and depend more on plot seeing us through?I rather spend the time needed to come up with a plan, a contingency, and the proper loadout to be able to accomplish the goals, than to depend only on what we have at the moment and plot armor.
Gaddangit. Blasted sleep making me miss these threads while they're actually happening.
>>19710974>We can trust her on anything but hurting the people she cares aboutThing is, she cares about EVERYBODY.
>>19710992to be fair we've had two in ~12 hoursit'd be hard not to miss one
>>19710996Not everybody. Just all our colleagues and their friends.So random jobs to waste yakuza? All good, more babysitting jobs? Great. Retirement jobs? Keep that shit locked away
>>19710974Only Homu is canon gay. Get over it. And this isn't a normal canon, so everyone is nearly straight here.
>>19711008>everyone is nearly straight hereAren't there like, at least four main characters we know aren't?
>>19711008Actually they never specified who was and wasnt gay. Even Homu was pretty much subjective for the most part. Sayaka wasn't. The rest is just rampant /u/ goggles from the fansIn this one we have an undefined Homura, a gay Iori, gay Sayaka and Kyoko undefined MamiSo things are not so cut and dried
>>19710974Just like how Hayate is canon justified in walking the path of the mary sue and collecting waifus?
>>19711002And they've both started in the early AM PDT, when I must be weak, and sleep. Then by the time I catch up, it's over.Not that it isn't fun to read, of course. Just slightly bummed that the timing isn't working for me.
>>19711031There's no proof that Kyoko is getting chummy with Sayaka in this one. For all you know, the other person is Yuma.
>>19711032No that's the player base and QM.Personally I don't give a flying fuck since it was a response to someone else mentioning the idea first and me stating frm experience that futons are generally pretty fucking small and mentioning for what the original poster had said you would need a larger bed.Anyway it's not like from some random post thread bullshit that we are magically going to infect this with MSQ harem bullshit
>>19711032Have you even read or watched Hayate no Gotoku?He's at the peak of human fitness due to magic, has a journeyman level of skill in almost all skills, combat ability at human peak levels, and has, if I remember correctly, 4 romantic interests.That's all canon, by the way.
>>19711043Except when we called Kyoko about Kirika we heard Sayaka in the background and they were in bed. Then one of the options for further actions was "call Sayaka. Heh"
>>19711051And has a wide array of skills and knowledge due to having a lot of jobs.Not to mention the first member of his harem is a rich loli that he tried to kidnap, for those that don't know the series.
>>19711094He is in fact a canon sue.Sort of like 50% of anime or manga protagonists though
>>19711051>>19711094In other words, "Yes, it is."
>>19711117He is a canon sue for comedic effect though.
>>19711137Oh yeah I don't care.I like books, games, manga and anime where the characters aren't realistic since they are what I do for escaping this shitty thing called realityIf I wanted to do something in a realistic setting I would go outside more often
>>19711117If the series actually took itself seriously, I wouldn't be a fan. Luckily it doesn't in the slightest, last I checked.
>>19711137Well, sure, it wouldn't work if it tried to take itself seriously.
>>19711176>>19711157Most things that try to take themselves seriously fail miserably.That's why so many fa/tg/uys are such assholes. They take everything as the literal truth and if someone says something then it is their master plan
Since it's more or less being discussed, is Mahou Shounen quest worth reading? I believe it's by LG, who's writing seems good from what I've seen (Mad Scientist quest), correct?
>>19711213If you like HnG you will like itBasically it is hated because it is run daily, liked by its players and doesn't take anything too seriously
>>19711222Oh and because "anime fetish shit doesn't belong on /tg/" according to most the trolls
>>19711222>run dailyFuck, what thread number is it on? I want to know if backlogging would be futile and I should just jump in.
>>19711213>>19711222Also, it is long. But fun, though I've been following it from the start, so I may be biased in this.
>>19711267145 was last night. Read the past few threads, jump in. Catch up later on the rest if you want
>>19711267Just jump in if you want, no one will tell you to go away for not reading the entirety of the archives.It is worth reading though because there are some great moments in ithttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Landing%20GearHas the majority of the threads except one or two side quests and one mislabeled thread
>>19711281Yeah all you really need to read is maybe the last two or three so you understand what is happening at the moment and jump right into it
>>19711281>145Is that '145 short threads' or '145 to bump limit'?If the latter, fuck backlogging. Ever.
>>19711213If you want actual plot moving, don't read it. Most of it is just pranks and SoL hijinks and waifu collecting.
>>19711286This is the one mislabeled thread:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/18285478/Anyway, back to the topic at hand:Mami, do we trust her (with the exception of retirement missions)? If we're told to retire her for breaking security, do we help her escape?
>>19711322Some short some over 800 posts iirc.Most of the later threads were slower and some of the earlier ones were utterly insane.In one where we derailed his plans totally and ended up taming a T Rex I think we got over 1000 posts
>>19711329We help her.I doubt she would get retired though since kyuubey mentioned she was very valuable to the agencyIf it does happen though fuck that mutant cat we aren't killing our pancake dealer
>>19711327We're working on that, and it's getting better. We think.
>>19711329Before we had two friends(Mami, Misaka), two acquaintances(Sayaka, Kyoko), and a fan(Iori).Safe to say, trust is not something we give without a thorough look over someone. I don't think she's going to be trusted as much for a long while.
>>19711382You're not. You aren't. And it's past the point of no return for most of us.
>>19711415Good, we don't particularly give a shit about people who dislike it and just bitch every chance they get.People who ask and don't act like jackasses we will gladly explain and tell them what they want to know
>>19711338>We tamed a Tyrannosaurus Rex, tyrant lizard king: king of the dinosaurs.Holy fuck, count me in!By any chance, did you name it Fluffy?
>>19711459Nah he ended up as a dapper gentleman named Theodore RexingtonWe also ended up with a panda Jackie chan
>>19711459Nah, he's Ted. There's also a rabbit, panda, one eyed wolf, and a cat that we have as familiars of sorts. Ted normally goes about looking like an Agumon in a top hat. We've also picked up some weaponized armor for him that needs to be constructed.>>19711415That's fine if you don't like it. LG's heard the complaints about lack of plot and pacing, and is taking steps, regardless.
>>19711505I hope when he starts getting to PLOT that NO ONE forgets to blow the train whistle.>bad jokes
Also, does it strike anyone else as odd that QB would be so concerned with money and political power?None of that helps him hold back the heat-death of the universe. It implies that the Incubators aren't united in their goal. Could we defect to a better Incubator? Preferably one that has a better retirement plan?
>>19711557>Preferably one that has a better retirement plan?Something that doesn't involve slowly going insane?
>>19711569that's not QB though. That's our friend from the grave doing us in.An Incubator who'd help us if we told him about pink would be cool
>>19711569I was thinking of one that doesn't involve one of our acquaintances suddenly showing up at our door to give us a piping hot order of lead bon-bons, or a 3-foot steel popsicle.
>>19711588Oh right, that.>>19711703Also a valid point.
>>19711703That would be the worst popsicle. You couldn't even eat it.
>>19711382I remember giving up around the time Nanoha got her age changed to 14 in order to be less creepy doing a crush plot with her.Back then I suggested in one of the discussion threads that the way we were going and the connection the quest had to the Editor setting you were all angling for a Supernaturally Unbalanced Entity position as basically everything goes your way and people act out of character to couple up with you (keeping in mind the series he's on keeps the harem dynamic working by constantly using him as the butt of every joke and keeping up his bad luck).From what I've head the quest is actually going in that direction and I might have been right all along or Landing Gear has more self respect then most of the quests 'fans' do and used it to fuck with everyone.Eitherway, the thing I came to dislike most about MSQ isn't so much Landing Gear, who the way he goes through with everyone;s wish fulfilment is bad. Rather, I came to dislike the regulars who try and excuse their creepy collection of anime waifus and how the harem is totally sustainable and reasonable somehow ignoring traditional harem show logic.But whatever, that's MSQ, it's a mess. This is Magic Girl Noir, all I need is a heavy Noir theme, looking after the blonde dame is fine and good so long as we're monologuing, hard boiled meguca with almost nothing to lose and a eye for professionalism. Keep that shit and I'll be happy.
>>19712714There's no harm in a little waifu chatter, so long as it stays on a player level, not the character level.I mean, obviously Iori is waifuing Chiaki, and Chiaki plainly doesn't know how to handle that.
>>19714259I would be okay with this. Minase Iori strikes me as a Nurturer-type, much like Mami. She hates seeing people suffer (remember her raped friend Yayoi?) and she's attracted to Chiaki for two reasons: 1) we saved her life; 2) she thinks she can make Chiaki better.I don't know if a Nurturing lover is capable of fixing Chiaki, but it could benefit her and it would almost certainly prevent her from going too far over the edge. If they hadn't gotten into their respective fields of Idol and Magical Girl, Iori and Mami probably would've ended up being doctors, nurses, or daycare workers.
