You are a Magical Girl, and you're starting to think that you are, in fact, playing the game with a few cards short of a full deck. You've always known that you weren't all there to begin with - the gaps in your memory, the nightmares, the hallucinations and everything else clued you in - but you're starting to think that there may be something really, really wrong with you.You've also lost your favorite drinking arm, but that'll be remedied soon enough.It's been approximately twelve hours since you retired Kirika Kure. With the help of your personal arms dealer and backup sniper Misaka, you managed to reduce the entire upper half of her body into bloody mist. Sure, you had to play patsy for a while and get your arm hacked off, but all's well that ends well.Dinner with Iori was something...awkward. You had apologized in advance that you may make a mess of yourself, what with having just your non-dominant hand to handle food with - but she didn't mind at all, and fed you herself, the idol sitting primly on the arm rest of your favorite chair while both of you watched Justice Dick reruns. The food itself was surprising, mashed potatoes with vegetables mixed in, and some sort of spicy steak.It's a shame you threw up most of it hours after. Half a bottle of whisky doesn't really help with digesting real food besides painkillers, as you just learned.
>>19746791It is now late morning, and you're out and about, in the backseat of a cab. Since Kyoko is out on assigment and Sayaka's not available, you've taken Iori along with you for your debriefing, the idol sitting beside you. The stump where your right arm once was is properly dressed, and your empty sleeve pinned up so as not to dangle too much.You're a bit glad Kyoko won't be around to bump into. She'd say something like how you look like one half of that girl from that cripple fucker game.The trip is a bit of a way, and you feel Iori leaning onto your shoulder. Must be falling asleep - you had a late night last night, after all, and you don't know if she slept well after dinner. You're sure you didn't wake her up with your being sick, though.You let her sleep. There's still some time before you get there, and she is pretty warm. It's a really cold morning, in any case.Check your inventory.Wake Iori up and have her move back a bit to recover personal space.
>>19746814Check inventory, do we still have that damned deagle?
>>19746814[X]Check your inventory.No need to wake Iori if she's comfortable
Czech the inventory.OMGOMGOMGOMG
>>19746791Nice art update in the OP. Someone should make a animated gif of the op pics as they evolve.
>>19746837>>19746829You check your inventory.You still have your two emergency canisters of painkillers, which gives you two doses each, a total of four. Sadly, you are all out of cigarettes. You need to buy another pack.You have also lost your pink cellphone, as it was skewered by none other than Kirika herself. You never did find out what was in that diary function. Oh, well.And surprise! Not only do you have the golden Desert Eagle with you, but also Murasame, Kirika's former main weapon. It's a heavy thing, but you can easily draw it and use it one-handed. The sheathe is pretty elaborate, made of heavy ebony and embossed with gold relief depicting dragons and stuff. The blade is solid gold, and has the roman numeral XX inscribed on the blade itself.Oh, you also have your debit card. Kyuubey gave it to you just before sending it off. You have four thousand dollars in it. He told you specifically to not spend it all in one place.Examine Desert Eagle.Examine Muramasa.Exit inventory and wait to arrive in destination.
>>19746935[x]Exit inventory and wait to arrive in destination.
>>19746935[x] Exit inventory and wait to arrive at destination.Try to doze off a bit in the car while you're at it.
>>19746935What's the shiny thing?also>[x]Examine Muramasa.
>>19746935Do we still have that illusionist girl soul gem with us?
Put the damn things away. They be dangerous.Pet Iori in a non-creepy manner.
>>19746935[x] Exit, try not to fall asleep.
>>19746935Skip to destination.
>>19746935[X]Examine Desert Eagle.Disassemble it. Se if there's anything unusual about it.
After the debrief, we should interrogate miss Rapist McIllusionBitch if we can find someone to watch Iori for us.
>>19746903>Czech the inventory.I see what you did there.A libi se mi to.
>>19746948The golden things are from some insane Pink haired girl who may or may not be an hallucination.They also make you insane, or more insane as is the case here.>>19746791Magical Girl Noir SOPs:http://pastebin.com/GhMpdgBhPrevious threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestTheme of the day:http://youtu.be/1FH0hi_NLow
>>19747002Nono, the egg shaped thing which appears to be either vibrating or shining in the picture.
>>19747011Legless magical girl's soul gem? I think?
>>19746935>You never did find out what was in that diary function. Oh, well.Well, I'm pretty sure it was nothing really special about it and you can live without it...>[x]Examine Desert Eagle.>[x]Examine Muramasa.Reconsider what are you going to tell to QB about these.
>>19747011Soul Gem, either ours or Emi's.
>>19747002>What would Cat Shit One, Hotel Moscow and Koko HekmatyarReplace that with 'what would Schlock do?'
>>19747035Our's in the center of Shield-thingy.So the one in the inventory is Emi's.
>>19747026> Touch golden object.Dammit, /tg/, why must we always keep touching shiny things that are cursed to devour our souls? Get another weapon.Where did we put the P90 and all the grenades anyway?
>>19747053It's placed on our left hand since the last thread where we got our arm lopped off by the golden katana.
>>19747062>Touch Fluffy TailBecause it's so soft and cuddly...Also - we need to figure out what to do about them - just pretending they don't exist probably isn't gonna work.
>>197470841. Sell them.2. Meta: Since they're cursed, I guess they'll appear in our inventory again.3. Since they're back, we sell them. Again.4. ???5. Profit!What? Okay, just dig a hole somewhere, pour in some concrete, toss them inside and pour in some more concrete. Wait for it to set.And pray.
>>19747102Counter meta: whoever bought them is gonna get corrupted.
>>19746969 >>19746964 >>19746946>>19746944You leave your inventory alone. No need to tinker with it right now, especially with the gaudy weapons. Iori's much too close to you to do anything useful with them, anyhow, and you're not exactly comfortable with the idea of going berserk with her in near proximity. You forget to mention, of course, the Soul Gem you took from Midori - you've been using it for a whisky warmer for so long that it actually smells of the stuff, now. You take it out momentarily, rather tempted with the idea of seeing if you can crush it with one hand.You put it back. You should probably start her interrogation after your debriefing.Messing with your Inventory done with, you lean back and close your eyes. Things are a bit quiet at the moment, so you take your time to enjoy it. Having a soft-bodied idol settling warmly against your side, her breath tickling your ear, seems to help.You doze off for twenty minutes before you arrive at your destination. Iori is the one who wakes you up, and she apologizes for drooling on your shoulder, flushing all the while. You shake your head at the apology, and you both step out of the car after paying the driver.Your destination is, in fact, a tall office building at the very heart of Mitakihara. It's certainly no Tower One, but it qualifies as a skyscraper. Officially called the QB Heavy Industries Tower and unofficially called The Officio Assassinorum by those in the know, it's a fifty-story building that could easily pass for a hotel building, if not for the usual flood of salarymen and women flooding in and out of it in an hourly basis.
>>19747102Same result as selling themAlso can't we grab the memory card from our old phone and get the diary stuff back?
>>19747138>SYNERGY>Generally amoral bastardReminds me far too much of my former boss.
>>19747138tell lori once again being a magic girl sucks dickare we gonna talk about the golden weapons after teh debrief?
>>19747102You really want other people to have those THINGS?No, selling or giving them is a bad idea.We either destroy them or put them somewhere safe (e:g: a safe or something) that only we can access.
>>19747168Tell him about Kirika's reaction to it and mention she said "she" gave it to her, say we haven't seen whoever she meant but we pulled the gun out of our shield ( technically not a lie ) say we think it had something to do with Kirika going crazy
>>19747168Yep, because we'd end up getting our retirement package sooner then expected if we don't.We work with him grudgingly, but trust is important.
>>19747138What started out as a measly front to a hired magical girl organization had swelled into a legitimate business involving military hardware. You get your own freebies from it, sure, but with Misaka being the head of R&D, you've long since found out that befriending her was the key to getting the real goods, especially the illegal ones.You've seen the recruitment posters, the printed propaganda to lure graduates and working men and women to manage the legal side of his company. In a rather human-like cunning, he had used his own appearance as a mascot of sorts, and from his current employee headcount, it's a massive success, especially when you consider that 80 percent of his employees are women.It's a bit hilarious when you consider that these people will never find out that they've been working for the mascot all along.Iori is holding onto your empty sleeve as you lead the way amidst the rush of employees working out their pitiful lifespans for money. You get in easily enough - the guards posted outside salute you as you step past them, none of them giving you or Iori a second look. The employees give you quite the berth as well, and you head towards the elevator that leads only to one floor - the penthouse, and the Officio Assassinorum proper.Iori seems to be intimidated with all this, and has switched sides to grasp at your own hand as you both wait for the elevator to get to its destination.You don't mind, you suppose. It's just her holding your hand. No one thinks badly about girls holding hands with other girls.
rolled 13 = 13>>19747198We just have to be careful how we word things, never outright lie but maybe leave out a small detail here and there
>>19747210The doors slide open, and you're treated to a room that's completely white. White furniture, white walls, white everything - making each splash of color garish and blinding, almost. This is the room that reminds you that you're working for an alien mutant cat from God knows where. There's a receptionist's area, and the wall at the far corner has a grand double door that leads to Kyuubey's room.Surprisingly, Mami is manning the receptionist desk. She's wearing rather tasteful office lady clothes, with a black armband pinned at her left sleeve.She glances up at your arrival, no emotion on her ace. "Vindicare Murderface," She greets you politely, stiffly. Her expression darkens just a bit at Iori holding your hand. "Kyuubey will see you in a moment."It's...yeah, you're in trouble. She's never really used your rank to refer to you.Iori murmurs a reluctant greeting, trying to smile. "G-good morning, Mami-san."How do you greet her?
>>19747210here we go
>>19747216Good morning Mami.Nice to see you are recovered from your injury
>>19747216So, how are you feeling after we saved your bitch ass?do we have our arm back? if not wave the stump around a bit
>>19747216>Surprisingly, Mami is manning the receptionist desk.Mami is still alive in this game?>>19746814>Since Kyoko is out on assigment and Sayaka's not availableSayaka TOO?! What is this tomfoolery?
>>19747224This. She's frosty, but we are not.
>>19747216"Hello Mami.Glad to see you recuperated fine."Look at her black armband and mutter:"sorry"
>>19746791OP could you at least give us a schedule of when you're going to run? I only got lucky this time to catch your thread (somewhat early)
>>19747216"Good morning""Feeling better?"
>>19747264this isn't the time to be nice. We've just had our arm lopped off saving her.She can take a dose of reality
>>19747242They're alive but well...potentially Evil Godoka exists too.
>>19747216Wave at her with our left arm. What's left of it.
>>19747280She is about the only person who can get a free pass on this. Given how much she has put up with us being a bitch in the past
>>19747216"Morning, Mami. How're you doing?" ... "Why are you manning the front desk?">>19747264What's with the black armband?>>19747242We're just that good. Or not, since we did lose our arm.
>>19747280But it's Mami. our delicious pancake deliverer!And she is obviously hurt...I don't feel like being cold to her.>>19747286Right arm.>>19747290Black armband = mourning
>>19747300Aren't we in Japan?And here I thought it's just a tradition that chinese people follow. Though over here us cheap fucks only pin a small patch of black or white cloth instead.
>>19747321It is a tradition almost worldwide. Many people just don't follow itStarted as a British thing iirc
>>19747321>And here I thought it's just a tradition that chinese people follow. Though over here us cheap fucks only pin a small patch of black or white cloth instead.Black armbands are a thing in America -- it's not normal, but if you do it, people know what it means. I didn't know you had something like that in China, but I suppose it makes sense.
>>19747216"I see your little puncture wound healed up just fine."
>>19747242You there, go read archives, now.And before you do, take a second to think who could our resident pink-haired nightmare be.
>>19747216>How do you greet her?Bow a little and use her formal title and full name.
>>19747242Failed timeline. Madoka is dead and witchified before anyone else
>>19747283>>19747362I think there might be two of them but this maybe the speculah talking
>>19747216if that's how she's going be we can be grumpy as shit too
Shit, why do people want to be nasty to Mami? I'd say she's higher than up there than Iori when it comes to people Murderface would go lesbo for. Think of the pancakes people!Idunno...show that we're hurt by the way she's acting. I mean, we did just lose our drinking arm saving her. No need to be an ass though. Greet her and ask how she s healing up. Maybe ask f you can speak with her when you're both free.
>>19747342I'm not in China. Just a country where there was a fuckton of chinese immigrants 50+ years ago and chinese ppl now comprise of most of the population. It's a long story.
>>19747410Jesus fuck, the g-men have found me. Sage for unrelated.
So guys, how about that "duct tape tampering the gun and sword" experiment?
>>19747447Haven't done it yet
>>19747394At least our little idol doesn't sift through our (Eyes only) mail, and nearly get us fucking killed because she then tattles to the person we need to kill.Besides, Idol-chan cooks for us too. Better than takeout and nicotine, at least.
>>19747394We're currently down one arm and teh bitch as show no sympathy.This isn't friendship is magic, this is a noir quest. We can be bitchy too
How are we gonna greet Mami?
>>19747290 >>19747259 >>19747264>>19747224While you consider yourself not at all that given to emotion, it does sting a little bit to be addressed in a manner by the person you once considered to be the only really good thing in your life. Still, you manage to work up what would pass off for you as a sincere if awkward smile, and you greet her good morning, as well as saying how you're glad that she's healed up just fine. Mami glances at you for a moment, before nodding slightly, before averting her gaze and going back to the laptop in front of her. The meaning of her black armband isn't all that lost to you, and you mumble an apology. Sure, you lost your arm, and it was your job, but somehow you feel guilty about the entire thing.This she seems to ignore, and you stand there unable to say anything else, when the intercom beside Mami's computer crackles slightly."Mami, please send Matsuda into my office. Alone, if she's got Minase Iori with her.""Yes, sir." Mami replies quickly, before nodding up at you and gesturing towards the doors. Iori looks at you, gripping your hand tighter, as if loathe to let go.You shake your head at the idol and gently pull your hand from hers. You'll only be a moment, you say, and you head towards the doors. You fail to see her glance at you, then at Mami, before making her way to one of the waiting seats at the other side of the room itself.You make a note to try and speak to Mami again after your debriefing.
>>19747477As you enter Kyuubey's office, you are momentarily disoriented as the doors close behind you. In contrast to the white environment outside, Kyuubey's office is...well, you know it's a room-wide hologram thing where the floors, walls and ceiling are displaying a chunk of space, the wall across from you showing what appears to be a strange planet in orbit, completely black with spikes jutting out from all over the surface.The spikes seem to be sprouting from underneath the planet's crust, by the way they're forming large cracks and fissures on its surface, revealing what looks to be blazing pink light from within.Kyuubey is sitting, perched on a rather luxurious high-backed chair, in front of many LCD screens scrolling data written in a rather unknown language. Photographs flicker past as the data scrolls - of you, Mami, Kirika and Kyoko, as well as a host of other known agents.You...you're pretty sure you saw the girl with pink hair in there, somewhere, but you're not too sure. The one you saw doesn't have black eyes, and looks normal."Ah, Matsuda." The chair turns to face you, and you see Kyuubey's bright crimson eyes focus on yours. "Ten minutes late. I'll dock that from your pay. How is the arm, and how is staying with Minase Iori turning out for you?"How do you respond?
>>19747394We have our friendly Misaka to make sexy times with. At least she saved us.pancakes can stuff it
>>19747492"The arm's as absent as it was last night.The Girl's useful. She cooks, keeps the bed warm and doesn't complain about anything. "
>>19747492Cut the small talk. Let's get this over with.Also, notice the blazing pink light...could be all the souls he's gathered or something much worse...And only you, Mami, Kyoko and Kirika are mentioned...perhaps candidates for the golden weapons? Pay attention to who appears in the photos. This may be important.
>>19747492it itches like crazyloli is a decent cook... if we keep it downhow's Mami doing?
>>19747513THIS.So we should warn Kyoko about the golden weapons. We shouldn't tell QB about these weapons either. It seems he knows. Mami is a lost cause, we'll have to put her down eventually.
>>19747523If we don't tell him now, he's going to make his own solution. which'll considerer us hostile due to us not be forthcoming with intel.We'll him everything but seeing pink and our bloodrages
>>19747195Basically tell him this
>>19747541But that assumes he knows we know, which we don't know, not for certain.Furthermore, he's not going to let on how much he knows, so we need to be *very* careful about what we say we know so that he doesn't know that we know if he doesn't already know.And if he knows we know, then he already knows what we know anyway, in which case we're fucked regardless of what we do. Therefore, carefully keeping mum is in our best interests.
>>19747523Not necessarily, we saw pictures of heaps of agents including pinky it could just be his database of agents.The only ones we recognized were Kyoko, Mami, Kirika and ourselvesAnd I doubt Mami will go off the deep end yet. Maybe once we have killed another magical girl or two
>>19747492"I don't recall disclosing my personal life as part of the job description."
I could use a different apartment. Kirika was in with the yakuza and that would know where I live which puts the girl in danger
>>19747492"What do you know about gold?"
>>19747556This is a assuming he fucking retarded and won't put things together the next time a golden weapon appears.We get in on the ground floor of his plan to stop pink. Everything includes swordbitch telling us about the "VII shall kill XX."We say nothing about us talking to pink or our bloodrages however.
>>19747570>>19747523We tried again and again. Every time, the hold they have on us prevented us to say anything.You really think it will works this time ? But say, try it again, why not.
>>19747580We can try, and we have had no issue telling the other girls but we haven't been able to tell Kyuubey yet
>>19747523>>19747556>QB>Not horribly intelligent and well connectedBad idea as it's seen us and Kirika with them. He'll make the connection.
>>19747492Look at QB."I can handle Iori just fine."Look at the arm."The arm? Still numb, looks like I've got a grip on it for now. Before things get out of hand, I'd like to have it reattached. It's-"Look at QB. Smile."... handy. Anyway, what do you know about the flesh of fallen angels? Kirika loves to talk about it. I'm assuming it's not a euphemism for cocaine."
>>19747595Telling other magic girls about it is fucking useless. It'll make us look like we're trying to undermine him.But people like failing.
>>19747570Or rather, pull out the katana and ask, "How much can I sell this for?" With a completely straight face.
>>19747600>>19747611I like your style.
>>19747603Yes I know that, but the point I was making is it seems we can only not tell Kyuubey about it instead of not being able to speak about it in general
>>19747619I may have been a bit harsh
So, uh, what /does/ the black armband mean?
>>19747513>>19747505You reply in a neutral, deadpan fashion, as you are usually wont to do. When you answer his question about Iori, it's then that you let out a bit more than you want to - that is, you're alright with her staying, and you're finding her useful to be around."Intriguing. And here I thought you'd have driven the girl away in an hour with your dreadful habits and the horrible way you treat guests. I'll have to make note of that."You're slightly relieved that Iori's outside, in any case. You stay silent, waiting for him to continue. You've learned long ago to just let the Incubator continue on his own pace and shut up."...In any case, let's begin your debriefing. You will report to me, with as much detail as you can provide, how you came to retire Kirika Kure." The screens behind Kyuubey begin to flicker, and then show Kirika's record in full - and you spot the bright crimson text at the bottom of her mugshot. 'Retired'. What a sad footnote to an otherwise sterling record."Please remember that the information you provide helps this company, so ensure that the information itself is complete, precise, correct and accurate." Kyuubey's voice gets that strangely human tone whenever someone recites from rote memory. "Still, before we begin, is there anything you would like to say about the leak or what we perceive to be a leak, Matsuda? Anything you want to add or change from your statement?"Reveal the truth about Mami.Say no, and recount your version of the events.
>>19747685[X]Say no, and recount your version of the events.
>>19747685>[X]Say no, and recount your version of the events.Everything else might endanger a future with delicious pancakes in it.
>>19747685Nope, No leaks, she was just paranoid to the max.
>>19747684death of someone important to her[x]Say no, and recount your version of the events.I may be snippy with mami, but I don't want her to die.Everything, including the "vii will kill xx," except pink talks to us and our bloodrages
>>19747685"My understanding of the leak situation hasn't changed since last night, no."[x] Give report
>>19747685Don't out Mami. Make sure to mention the Golden weapons, the flesh of fallen angels and the fact that Kirika mentioned a "her" who gave her the weapon and said that the one who killed her would have a golden weapon with an VII will kill her. This suggests that there is a third party around handing these out. Say that we retrieved the Deagle from our shield but don't know its actual origin or what powers it has, but that it seems to have a corrupting effect.
>>19747711Let's go with this.
>>19747711 I vote for this. We have to know what is up with all these.
>>19747711>but that it seems to have a corrupting effect.Let's leave that bit out.
>>19747685[x]Say no, and recount your version of the events.When we get a chance to talk to Mami outside the office (who knows, she may just be acting odd because QB is watching over her from the next room) we'll have to blackmail her... For more pancakes.
[ ] Do not tell the truth about Mami.Then after this is done, we politely tell her that we are bound by oath and law to do our missions, no matter what, and that her actions, while admirable, would have caused greater harm.Also tell her that Kirika was batshit insane and stabbed her, despite her actions.
>>19747709Oh, nice wording.
>>19747725I vote for NOT leaving it out.I also vote for outing Mami as the leak, and telling him about Pinky, but I know I'll get outvoted on both.
>>19747685>Say no, and recount your version of the events."Well, when I read your cheerful little assignment about having to execute on little rogue element when all the alcohol I drank was nigh flowed to my head at once and I decided to gain information from the target herself.""The target didn't appear to be, how you would say, sane. However he did reveal herself to have been extremely paranoid. Mostly likely she ancipated that you would send someone to put her down.""The thing is...."Pull out the gold sword."This had been given to her recently"
>>19747745I'm up for telling him about Pinky, but I wouldn't out Mami.
>>19747745hm, I could go with telling him about our bloodrages also after we got the weaponbut not Pink and Mami.
As for Mami, please do remember that she lost her parents to a car crash at an unknown age. Between this and putting her attention to the whole Magical Girl job, she's trying not to think about the fact she selfishly chose to live rather than to revive her parents.If anything, she'd do anything to avoid the death of a friend, even if it was that crazy bitch Kirika (whose best friend and possibly lesbian fuckbuddy we should have kidnapped and murdered on the spot)There's a shitload of issues to deal with, and I doubt Chiaki's capable of solving any of them.
>>19747767Gods no. That's practically asking "Oh, by the way, i'm starting to become as much of an uncontrollable psychotic liability as the bitch you just had me kill, so please kill me where I stand to stop that happening."Just no. Hell no.
>>19747786which is why I said not to in my original post. Leaving pink haunting us and he bloodrage out is teh best for now until god cat gets some independent intel
>>19747786>Gods no. That's practically asking "Oh, by the way, i'm starting to become as much of an uncontrollable psychotic liability as the bitch you just had me kill, so please kill me where I stand to stop that happening."But would he be wrong to do that? Please do try to think about what's best for everyone.
>>19747799I like being alive.
>>19747774Well there is one thing we can be sure of. No pancakes for a loooong time.Another thing, we would ask Lori some questions. Because I wonder if she is going to become a permanent addition?
>>19747799...Are you sugesting we purposely get our character killed?
>>19747806she's not in the room with usand let's try not to ruin her life even more
>>19747811>Are you sugesting we purposely get our character killed?No, of course not. I have faith in you, anonymous.
>>19747799Speaking from the perspective of the Alcoholic, drug-addicted, misanthropic magical assassin we're playing as here?Fuck the Greater Good.
>>19747711This, it's basically what i wanted earlier. Mention the weapons seem to suggest and reinforce bloodshed
>>19747786Or he could just take the gun off us.>>19747806>LoriIori. Uppercase i, not lowercase L.
>>19747806Maybe Iori will learn how to make pancakes. We need a new supplier for our pancakes and she looks like it. In exchange she can get our cold, traumatized tolerance which is about as close as we can get to actual affection.
>>19747806Iori can make pancakes. :P
>>19747799>>19747821>Please do try to think about what's best for everyone.>I have faith in you, anonymous.Asshole confirmed for Kyuubey.
>>19747806We can ask her later on.Pancakes may be a little while but I don't know whether she will hate us for long, she is forgiving because largely she is afraid of being left utterly aloneWe do need the other two watching Mami for us though, she is about the only person we care about other than Iori
Let's do a vote tally on what we're telling Kyubey.
>>19747864>complains about images on an image board
>>19747831>>19747829They will never be as good as Mami's pancakes.
>>19747685These two:>>19747711>>19747730Make Kirika look look like the bad guy, all our information on angelflesh and golden shit was from her. Don't oust Mami, we'll try to deal with her once we're out of the building. Don't mention that we're turning insane.Also: Glance at the planet. "Nice place. Someone had a bad hair day?"
>>19747881Agree with this post. No Mami, no bloodlust. Also make a comment about that funky-looking planet.
>>19747874I know, she'll try as hard as she can and no matter how much of a smile we force, how hard we try she'll see in our eyes that they just aren't as good, it'll tear her up inside.Just like our relationship with Mami, no matter what we do to try and fix it and bring it back to what it once was, these pancakes will be a pale reflection of what they were that serve only to remind us of the happiness we once had.
>>19747874Nothing is as good as Mami's pancakes.They are magical girl crack.Pocky is magical girl speed
>>19747881>Glance at the planet. "Nice place. Someone had a bad hair day?">Planet is made of black crust>Spikes that break through the crust, like something escaping>Pink lightHypothesis: The incubators are containing Godoka with her Witch version and the spikes are arrows that Godoka used to try and escape
>>19747898why do we bother to smoke then?we should jsut be gorging ourselves on pocky all day
>>19747725 >>19747711 >>19747709You shake your head. Your understanding of the leak situation, if there ever was one, hasn't changed since last night, you say. Kyuubey tilts his head slightly to the side, as if studying you carefully, before nodding."If you say so, Matsuda. Now, please give me your report."And you do so. You tell him a 'complete' version of the events as it played out. Your attempt to get in contact with Kirika to feel her out, and possibly make an attempt there, which failed due to her paranoia. Your approaching Misaka for new equipment and sniping assistance. Sayaka's contribution to the effort, and how it all played out on the helipad of Tower One.After your recounting of the events, it's then that you finally broach the subject of the Golden Weapons. It's here that Kyuubey seems to take more interest at what you're saying. You pull out the sword from your inventory, and tell him about what Kirika had revealed about it - the number on its blade, and how the 'girl' who had given it to her had told her that the person carrying a golden gun with the number VIII would be responsible for Kirika's death. You also mention here that ever since Kirika had received the blade, she'd been unstable, which would explain her recent trend of killing principals."Interesting. And you say that the firearm you now have at the moment is the same one in this 'prophecy'? May I see it?"You oblige him, placing both weapons on the transparent orange desk that manifested in front of him a mere few moments ago. "You simply got this Desert Eagle from your shield when you tried to cycle it for a new firearm, I see. Do you know about this 'girl' who gave Kirika her gun? Have you met her before, and if you have, can you provide me with a description?"Tell him about Pinky.Deny any knowledge of Pinky.
>>19747874Don't underestimate lesbian-flavored pancakes.
I think we need to get rid of the golden weapons as soon as possible. Having them around seems like a grand way of getting mindfucked further by Nega-Modoka.
>>19747917Reveal. We need to get these things away from them. They are fucking poison.
>>19747917[X]Deny any knowledge of Pinky.I don't know anything about her, but considering how fucking damaged my memory is it's entirely possible I met her before.Keep your eyes open for magical girls whose eyes are all black, Kirika's eyes were completely black at the end there, it's just a hunch but I'd bet they're related.
Reveal. Not telling him will lead to an inevitable clusterfuck later, while telling him merely has the possibility of one.
>>19747925It's simple.The golden weapons are a means for Pinky to have her fabulous, ultimate battle of ultimate destiny duel rematch. But to have that, the weapons will make Murderface into a bloodthirsty, super-raging, super-murderous slashermaniacwarrior. It's so contrived and theatrical, and vain.Indeed, Pinky is vain.
>>19747917[x]Tell him about Pinky.Tell him that she seemed to know about us, and she is possibly a Magical Girl in the employ of another Incubator. That's the only logical explanation for her ability to project images of herself.Also say that no, we don't know who she is.
>>19747917[x]Tell him about Pinky.Hold onto your butts, we're about to get some fucking plot.Or killed.Either way, super fun happy times!
>>19747917No I haven't seen any weird girls. Well weirder than our usual bunchHow is Mami's injury
>>19747917We have no idea who gave us the weaponsTELL HIM ABOUT OUR POWERS FAILING NEAR THE ENDask him to keep the weapons
>reveal pinky Hey guys how about we play Russian roulette with a Mac-10 afterwards as well I think that's a great idea
[X]Deny any knowledge of Pinky.We've already lied about how we got the gun, admitting we know about Pinky will reveal that.
>>19747917Don't reveal Pinky.Vote Tally:5 - don't reveal4 - reveal
>>19747965I forgot they failedthat should stand out
Deny all knowledge.This is a serious "we will fucking die if we choose wrong" moment and telling this little prick that we see Pinky is just asking for an ass reaming while we are missing an arm and unable to properly defend ourselves
>>19747984That's vote #6 for DO NOT REVEAL PINKY
>>19747917[X]Tell him about Pinky.Very carefully, don't say we've had conversations with her, or that we know much about her. Say that rarely, and more often when using time stop, we have seen a pink haired girl with black eyes but never interacted with her outside of that. Ask him to go through the roster of former magical girls to see if there's a match.
>>19747917[x] Reveal pinkyHe could actually help us before it's too late.AFAIK, we can't do anything against her on our own and acquiring the golden weapons is doing what she want. So far we are going full speed into corruption/fubar route.
>>19747917> person carrying a golden gun with the number VIII would be responsible for Kirika's death.> since Kirika had received the blade, she'd been unstableWe did /what/? Fuck. We dead now. Let's make shit up.> Do you know about this 'girl' who gave Kirika her gun? Have you met her before, and if you have, can you provide me with a description?"Kirika mentioned she had pink hair."Look as if you're thinking hard."I think I saw someone flash through your screen just now."
we at least need to hand over the golden weaponseven if they come back he'll have time to study them
>>19747917[X] No reveals k thnx
>DENY DENY OH GOD DENY HE'LL KILL USOh for fuck's sake.Telling QB about a potential threat proves we're more loyal than paranoid. Keeping it to ourselves proves the opposite, should he ever find out.Mami went behind our back and that blew up in her face. Us going behind QB's back will end the same way.
>>19747917[X]Deny any knowledge of Pinky.
>>19747917>>19748022 Vote to LIE.Lie about what we know about pinky. We only know she has pink hair from Kirika. That's it.No more telling him we're turning insane and murderous like previous confirmed genius posters.
No revealSamefagging seems to be leaking in
I don't think we should reveal Chaos Goddess Madoka. Not now, at least.If the alien mutant cat presses, then we gotta reveal, but if not, LIE LIKE THE WIND, CHIAKI.
>>19747917>>19748042Don't reveal unless pressed further.FUCKING SAMEFAGS
>>19748042>>19748053Pretty sure it's coming from your side a lot more than the other.
>>19748042the last ~5 votes for each side are same fagging I bet
>>19747950>>19747965Reveal will make us into a corpse.Telling him our powers aren't powers anymore will ALSO make us a corpse.You guys never heard of QB before have you?
rolled 2 = 2Fuck this shit.On a one, reveal. On a two, don't.
>>19748065The dice gods have spoken.
At the very least if we're denying knowledge of her pass on that we heard Kirika say that "she" had pink hair.
>>19748098Yeah that's fine. Just nothing from our own experiences with her yet, not until it is unavoidable and then we can say it happened after killing Kirika
I vote tell him about pinky. We need to get some plot eventually.
The way I see this is our options areInstant deathDelayed deathBoth ways we are fucked but it is a matter of how much we can sort things out first
Keep quiet.We can tell him IF he brings it up not before, he will just kill us if he thinks we are going to go down the same path Kirika did given she was a lot more stable than we are prior to Pinky contact
[x]Tell him about Pinky.He might be able to help us. Failing that, knowledge of the Chaos Goddess Madoka will help prevent others from falling into her snare.
Don't tell him about pinkyWe can handle our own hallucinations well enough
>>19748138He IS bringing it up.He's asking us right now if we know about her.
>>19748142>help>QBYou never saw Madoka did you? We hate and mistrust this little fuck in character and out with good reason
>>19748161Yes, but we can trust him to do what's best for himself.And nuking his only known connection to the pink-haired bringer of madness would be stupid. I really don't understand how you guys can't see that.
>>19748157Ah I haven't caught up yet, just got in and saw the voteDisregard that vote then. I need to finish reading the thread
>>19748161YOU never saw Madoka did you?He lies by OMISSION. We need to be very specific in our questions and answers. And he has stake in helping us. Someone is driving his agents crazy. He's willing to help us provided he has a stake in helping us, WHICH HE DOES. However if he finds out later, and not from us, that makes us look more and more like Kirika and more and more likely to get retired so hard.
only talk about her if he brings it up specifically.If he asks us why we didn't tell him at a later date, throw his own words back at him.
>>19748142>>19748119> Kyuubey helping us.> When he can kill us to make the world a safer place.Magical girls (note: us) are cheap and replaceable.As for Godtoka:> Godtoka making us into a berserker even a Khornate cultist would be jealous.> Godtoka being an infectious idea that gains more power when more people know of it.> Godtoka eventually visiting everyone we tell, and giving them a special golden weapon that's also Karn's favourite rapestick.> Gotoka helping us... get dead.Choose one.
>>19748186this is how I see itI've already voted however
>>19747917Looking at the votes we won't be telling him about our interactions with her, but we should say that Kirika mentioned that the "girl" had pink hair. See if he knows anything or if this triggers anything.I've already voted but at the very least give him this tidbit, it doesn't link back to us and might get him answers.
Don't reveal.He is not to be trusted, we've already lied and if we spill the beans now that will come out.If we tell him later after we know more we can pass it off as having found out new information while doing it now will be "Ok, yeah, so I lied a moment ago-".Not a good idea.
>>19747959 >>19747956You take a deep breath and reveal what little you know about the girl with the pink hair and black eyes. You tell him, carefully, about your encounters of her, but confining it to merely seeing her in your dreams, nothing to incriminate you or throw you into suspicion. You also mention how, during your usage of your Time-stopping abilities, she seems to pop up every now and then, but only as a vision, and not something you can actually interact with.You give him what you think is an accurate description, and it's then that the Incubator blinks at you. He turns slightly in his seat, and taps one of the screens beside him with a paw.And the smiling face of the mysterious girl with the sunless eyes are displayed from the entire series of screens, a large portrait of her looming up at Kyuubey from behind."I'd have figured as much. Thank you for coming forward with this information, Matsuda." Kyuubey says after a moment, turning to face you. "Am I correct to say that this is the girl you've been seeing, and the one who gave Kirika her sword?"You nod, unable to take your eyes off the digital portrait.
>>19748186So far, there are two agents who have golden weapons and may be going crazy, his fix? Kill them both so it won't spread.I saw the anime, I read the LN's he will just kill us because it is easier to replace us than it is to sort our shit out
>>19748232Our time powers fail!We need intel on that!
>>19748186> He lies by OMISSION.Yeah, like lying by omission is the only way he can get us dead.> Someone is driving his agents crazy. He's willing to help us Maybe he can. Maybe he knows jack shit and feeds us some pointless rumour.We LIE about it, and never mention that we're part of a the crazy.>>19748175> And nuking his only known connection to the pink-haired bringer of madness would be stupid.> Implying that since Godtoka is an immaterial being and no more substantial than a hallucination, nuking us, material and active in the real world, is not a good idea.He can get other magical girls fucked up if he wants. It's as easy as saying, "Hello Sayaka, touch this golden sword while you're drugged and chained to this laboratory table."
>>19748232And it was all moot because Deculture was busy drawing and writing.Hold onto your anuses ladies and gentlemen
>>19748232It's then that Kyuubey sighs, and gestures towards the wall behind him, displaying that strange planet."It's strange, isn't it, Matsuda? How this particular rock in space looks. What you're looking at isn't a planet or an asteroid - it's actually a grief seed. We found it hiding in the shadow of this planet's moon. It's invisible to everything else - NASA has yet to even discover it - but we have enough technology with us to actually see what it is."He hops off his seat and onto his desk, placing one foot on Muramasa's handle. "We believe it belongs to a Witch unlike any other. A Witch who retains her presence of mind, thought, and has untold amounts of power - to the point that we believe that she is more of a concept than an actual being. Not something you can easily kill, at that."Kyuubey looks up at you."We call this Witch Faust, and we believe that she is preying upon Magical Girls. I've already received reports from other agencies of their agents encountering her too, and being found murdered days later. This is the first time I've heard about her visiting someone's dreams or giving them weaponry, however."Kyuubey looks down at the weapons, and then looks up at you again."Have you been experiencing anything strange besides these visions, Matsuda? Any sudden, unexplained bursts of anger, frustration, madness? How is your amnesia?"It seems you've begun your OWN interrogation, here.How do you respond?
>>19748232fix our shield up a little you furry cunt!
>>19748283"How is my amnesia normally?"
>>19748232Prepare fo- BLAM.
>>19748283I have been acting more emotional and giving a shit about people lately.I have noticed something urging me towards violence, nothing i am not used to but this time it is from an outside source it feels like
>>19748283I'm torn, but don't tell him about the bloodrage yet>>19748299 >>19748287
rolled 47, 28 = 75>>19748283No, no, no, no, I don't remember respectively
>>19748283"Nothing too out of the ordinary, I think, aside from suddenly giving more shits about people."
>>19748283"A mad person wouldn't refer to herself as mad, now would she?"
>>19748283"Amnesia's the same as it was when I woke up. Had one burst of anger when I was holding the gun, so that's why I'm staying the fuck away from it. I've got enough problems with a swiss-cheese memory without someone going inside my head."
>>19748283I really can't give you an answer on the amnesia front, if I forgot something then there is no way for me to know if I forgot it or not. I don't have a good point of reference for it.I did really want to kill Kirika but I find that difficult to attribute to any outside force as I hated that bitch, it may be connected but nothing verifiable. I have felt slightly less apathy and hate for everything other than booze, nicotine and pancakes, which is rather strange.Also my shield is a bit buggy, didn't properly work when fighting Kirika, but given that it has a massive gash in it and that Kirika is connected to this "Faust" and had time related powers of her own, we once again can't draw anything conclusive from it. Also I am suffering from nicotine withdrawal and severely want a pack of cancer sticks.
>>19748283nothing out of the ordinary besides starting to be nice(ish) to people.
>>19748283"Anger? Mostly at you, unfortunately."
rolled 4, 17 = 21>>19748283Well... the guns seems to make me into a Khorne worshiping Rambo, but Iori seems to keep that in check rather nicely
>>19748283"Amnesia's fine. It gets itchy once in a while, that's about it.Got mad at Sayaka, thought she might have been the leak. Turned out otherwise. Nearly blew her brains out, didn't, we ended up bonding a little. Not sure if that's a good thing.I was wielding that gun at the time."
>>19748322I support this one.Never tell him about the rage craziness. Easiest path to dead.
>>19748348> I did really want to kill Kirika but it's just me not induced by the pink thing I've just mentioned. I'm completely not going to turn out like Kirika Really. Trust me.> QB: "Oh. Since you asked real nicely..."
Should we tell him that our shield's timestop has been acting up?
>>19748379I think we should tell him that we were mad at Sayaka and we pulled the gun on her, though. Sayaka and Misaka were there, they saw our eyes change, and since they were part of this mission I fully expect QB to debrief them as well. If our story doesn't line up with theirs, then that'd be an even faster route to getting retired.
>>19748400We already have a prior history of hating the bitch, and then we found she kidnapped our pancake wench. Us not hating her guts would be much stranger and be more suspicious than saying that we hated the bitch and we're just being thorough by listing everything even possibly related no matter how absurd.
>>19748410This is a good point.
>>19748410We should do that.
>>19748410Probably not a bad idea. If it's not too late.
>>19748410yes, that would be the fastest way into retirement.i support this
>>19748410Hm. Well, just say we were mad at Sayaka being a bitch, pulled the gun on her and then calmed down by using a grief seed.Imply that the gun might be causing it, and also imply that its because of grief(?). Still sounds dangerous to me.But since we're not get BLAMMED even after mentioning all that stuff to QB anyway, let's see how far down shit creek we can float through.
>>19748463>Well, just say we were mad at Sayaka being a bitch, pulled the gun on her and then calmed down by using a grief seed.Ah, but they both saw our eyes turn black. They're not going to both leave out something like that.So we have to mention it, and say that it's the reason we didn't use the DEagle after that.
>>19748418Mad enough to go murder everything we see, just like Kirika?Your phrasing makes us look very suspicious. Like we're slipping down the slope to full-blown murdertown and trying our best at lying badly to cover up how we're going full Kirika.
>>19748463Nah QB doesn't get his own hands dirtyYou know our retirement order will now he stamped the moment we step out of the office though
>>19748499>Your phrasing makes us look very suspicious. Like we're slipping down the slope to full-blown murdertown and trying our best at lying badly to cover up how we're going full Kirika.This statement can be applied to your own posts much more accurately than his.
>>19748283>anger, frustration"You mean angrier and more frustrated than usual? Hell no, I didn't think it was possible for me to be more misanthropic than I already am."
>>19748515That's a good pointI think Kyuubey would be more suspicious of the fact we are not being a bitch to everyone rather than we are
>>19748283"Only when I have to deal with crazy magic girls and Mami being retarded."
>>19748490> mention it, and say that it's the reason we didn't use the DEagle after that.QB's smart enough not to trust us. Consider this:> This gun is fucking magic and makes people crazy.> Look man, I didn't touch the gun at all. Really. Trust me.> I'm not a whiskey drinking, painkiller abusing, Murderface nicknaming, amnesiac with bad habits and an apartment filled with guns.> I'm not crazy. Really.
>>19748535We were doing all of those things BEFORE we got the gun.Hell, that's probably the reason we were able to resist it.
>>19748532>Mami being retardedWhy would we mention this
>>19748560Because he just wants to be a cuntWe might dig ourselves into an inescapable pit but you don't fuck the other girls over, we might hate them but it's professional courtesy
Wow, almost missed this.
>>19748560>>19748569I didn't say tell him about the leakbut her defending the crazy was retarded.
>>19748560Well, it's widely known that she never has a good head on her shoulders.
>>19748643>>19748664Oh god not again.
>>19748664stop while you're ahead
>>19748672But it was heading in such a good direction
>>19748686Well, losing your head over the puns isn't worth the trouble.
>>19748410 >>19748348 >>19748342>>19748331You tell Kyuubey about what's been happening to you for the past few days or so, emotion-wise. Besides feeling relatively normal and just a little more positive about things than before (which doesn't really amount to much), there was that one time where you pulled the gun on Sayaka. Of course, that time both of you were considerably stressed due to the circumstances, and you thought that she was the leak. You also tell him about how Sayaka saw your eyes going black during this altercation."Ah." Kyuubey nods at you. "Yes, Sayaka did mention that in her own debriefing. She said you nearly made her pee herself, at that." The incubator's tail swishes back and forth. "Idly, she asked me if it meant that you would be retiring soon."Silence, between the two of you. Behind him, the screens making up Pinky's portrait seems to flicker - and it's then that the portrait itself seems to move. Its black eyes blinking, before focusing on you.Her smile widening, showing bloody teeth, Pinky gives you an almost cheeky wink.The screens flicker again, and the portrait reappears, frozen in time just like before.
>>19748664...how does she give head if she's missing hers?
>>19748695I guess so, always good to keep a level head in these things
>>19748699"...I don't have any plans on retiring sir..."
>>19748699>dly, she asked me if it meant that you would be retiring soon."That bitch.
>>19748615Not really given we defend her because we are as much damaged goods as she is in this, she wants to protect everyone where we want them all to go away becuase we both don't want to lose anyone and be hurtWe sympathize with her even if we disagree with her method
>>19748703She takes deep throat to a whole new level.
>>19748730This is disgusting
>>19748695God nose we've done this enough times. Eye am just going to stick my neck out and say we don't need to ear anymore of these. I know I'm being cheeky, but we should stop heading in these directions and keep on topic.
>>19748699"I know what you're thinking, Matsuda, and let me assure one of my more...able employees that your retirement, should I choose to have it processed, will not be anytime soon." Kyuubey closes his eyes as he nods, seemingly satisfied. "Kirika Kure, as you've noted, was unstable - but despite her record, I've noted that she had been on the verge of going rogue. A few of my contacts have seen her talking with other Incubators, Incubators that are not affiliated with this agency. So, for the moment, rest assured, at least, that I will not be ordering Sayaka to kill you in the near future just because of a few harmless outbursts here and there."You feel better already."Now, about these weapons. Would you mind if I kept them for a while? I will have some of my staff see just what they are. If my suspicions are correct, they have some sort of influence on their wielders. Your eyes turning black - that may just be an effect of your frustration, but please tell me should any other symptoms appear. It may give us clues on this Witch and what she's doing, and how we can put her down before she kills any more Magical Girls."You nod in assent, quiet as always."Do you have anything else to say, then, Matsuda? Oh, by the way, please collect your smartphone from Mami. From now on, all your future dossiers will be sent to it. As a precaution, I sent Sayaka to purge our courier service, just to remove the possibility of a leak from that avenue." Kyuubey reopens his eyes. "If there is nothing else, then do not let me detain you."Do you have anything else to mention?
>>19748747Lost the reins. Nothing to put the halter on.
>>19748699Is that why you called me in? Because honestly you could have told me and I would have left Iori at home
>>19748762>do not let me detain youVetinari <3
>>19748762Is there any chance I could be moved to another apartment. While yakuza are not a threat to me I am supposed to be looking after Iori still it would be inconvenient if they turned up while I was out and she was harmed
>>19748762We have to ask all the question we can now.Start with... "How long am I going to be stuck with Iori?"
>>19748762>courier service purgesomething like this had to happen, feeling sorry for them.
>>19748762>As a precaution, I sent Sayaka to purge our courier serviceServes them right for handing the dossier to Mami."Gonna go interrogate a bitch now. You can watch if you like, I know you're into that sort of thing."
>>19748762"Keep an eye on the weapons at all time. That is all."Then proceed to tell Mami to go eat a dick already. We apologized several times, if she's still going to be a bitch about she can fuck off.
Should we mention that our shield's time-stopping ability seemed to be acting up during our fight with Kirika? Or should we keep quiet about that, seeing as how the timestop is one of the ways we can directly access Pinky?
>>19748799>>19748802We should tell Mami that we are not the only person with blood on our hands today.That is, if we never want pancakes again.
>>19748762Lodgings, our old place may be compromised due to Kirika's Yakuza associates.Interrogation of Midori, we're here so we may as well get it dealt with, see if there is any information in specific that he wants us to look for.Our shield being a bit buggy, see if he knows anything about magical girl equipment maintenance and repair.
>>19748815We should definitely bring up the fact that it's broken.
>>19748810No. She is about the only person who we will accept even passive bitchiness from at the moment because she put up with massive amounts of shit from us and until recently was our only friend.We mumbled an apology when she was being loaded onto the chopper and apologized today after killing someone she considered a friend, we give her time to sort shit out
>>19748815Say it seems that the damage to it has started to catch up with it and ask if he can fix it
>>19748762Our time power aren't working >>19748829
>>19748762Ask him when we'll get our arm back.Also tell him that we're going to interrogate Midori now.
>>19748762"Kirika kept going on about 'The flesh of fallen angels,' and that she 'would be her herald.'"
>>19748762Ask him to look into our shield and its powers. The damage to it appears to be catching up to it and it needs repairs.Also ask if we can get our arm back today; it's kind of inconvenient without it.On the way out, try to stay nice to Mami. She's put up with our shit in the past, and I'd like to mend our friendship when she's sorted her feelings out.
>>19748835Fuck that, we have Misaka.She even likes guns.
>>19748894>less friends is a good thingHaHaHa.
>>19748913In this business it kinda is.
>>19748835One more chance, then. We are not Mami the Allforgiving.Still tell QB to never let his eyes off the weapons. Maybe ask when we get a new arm, or if we can take Misaka up on her offer of giving us a cool mechanical arm with a lasfinger, plasma cannon and flamer that talks to us in robotic voices.Then interrogate Emi. The fact we get to interrogate her at all means she's somehow involved. I want to know if she has a gold weapon stashed somewhere, and what number it is.
>>19748923Do explain your logic. I can't say I follow at all.
>>19748923Friends like Iori who can be a liability are something to avoidFriends like Mami who can be very useful when she isn't caught between two friends she doesn't want hurt
>>19748942You can't be betrayed by someone you don't trust.
>>19748894Misaka is our work friend, we don't really have much in common outside of guns. Do you really think she'd want to hang out with us while we're silently sitting in a chair for hours, slowly drinking ourself to death and chainsmoking. We're a depressive train wreck, when we're at work she likes that we're efficient and love guns just as much as she does, if we involved her in our frankly depressing home life we'd start to strain our relationship.
>>19748866Yes, let's get our arm back.
>>19748950So we don't trust them. Doesn't mean they can't be our friends, surely.
>>19748928I agree with the robot arm part. let's become cyborg noir alcoholic magic girl.
>Idly, she asked me if it meant that you would be retiring soon.Okay. Do we agree that this warrants another punch in the face for Sayaka the next time we see her?
>>19748950We do need to work with her still and if we are friends we get our fucking pancakes.So being nice to her against even if we are a bitch to everyone else to balance it is win win
>>19748826>Lodgings, our old place may be compromised due to Kirika's Yakuza associates.This. Healthy paranoia is always a good decision.
>>19748965No.It warants a cick to her lady parts.
>>19748965Nah, she said it to our face earlier and we didn't hit her, no need to go do it now
>>19748928>Mami the Allforgiving.But we are not a Sociopath Robot, The Worsening, even if you would better kill all our friends, then suicide Murderface with high caliber weaponry.Still, I like how you are tripfaging. Every one of your idea is either deadly stupid or laughably bad, so I can pinpoint where you are more accuratly. But still, still here, /k/ fag?
>>19748965I'd say that this warrants a stern look and a judgemental shake of our head. Like we're not even mad, just very disappointed.
>>19748913>2012>Thinking that having many friends in a Noir-Setting is a good Idea
>>19748997Personaly I want to do it because it's a bad idea. The more oportunities for shit to hit the fan, the more fun I can have reading this thing.
>>19748762Tell QB that the golden weapons have an annoying tendency to return to their wielders. Otherwise when they inevitably fall into our hands again it will look like we stole them.Did we mention that there are probably 20 of the weapons and that Pinky gave that prediction to Kirika? If not, do so. We can also use this prediction to blame the leak on that rather than the courier.
>>19748983I hate pancakes.>>19748969The hell made you mad, bro?
>>19748965Be sure to wear black contacts and a creepy smile when we get to do that.>>19748969> Noir.> Nice.Pick one. We've apologised more than twice already. We're not Mami from before we killed Kirika.
>>19748965We need to get black contact lens and follow her around for a day
>>19748997>people liking you, and therefore being less willing to do you in, is a bad thing in a setting where it is very likely to be done inWe don't have to trust them, just for them to not dislike us
>>19749029Yeah but that goes against the being friends thing, and more like people we manipulate not to bust a cap in our ass. The latter being a much smarter idea, albeit more ronery.
>>19749015Matsuda loves her fucking pancakes though, the only way she could love them more is it they were whiskey pancakes so she could eat and get drunk at the same time
>>19749013> funOh god, no.
>>19749014Also, mention that the golden weapons may somehow be tied to the tarot. Someone mentioned that in a previous thread.FInally, the witch was named as Faust. Is this cyoa connected to the Magia Series cyoas? Haven't finished reading through those threads yet.
>>19749016And it has been all of 40 hours since we killed Kirika.Give things more than five fucking seconds before going to bitch mode where people we more than tolerate are involved
>>19749054That got a chuckle outta me.Like I said, I'm not against giving Mami a chance to sort shit out, but Matsuda ain't one to take that shit forever, although she would try to make up with Mami if she did go as far as telling her to eat a dick at one point.
>>19749060That's right. Fun.
>>1974906712 according to the opening postShe hasn't even had time to realize Kirika was gone and we saved her life
>>19749067You forget the fact that this is a stressfull time for US as well. People bitch to eachother when they're highly stressed. I mean, if there's enough stress going around to even make Mami a bitch, how the hell are we able to keep our cool?
>>19749067I'm cool with not being a bitch. Play it cool, play it noir, play it bogart. Problem is, we're to be apologising for our actions way too much.Didn't make us dead though, so it's not all that bad.
>>19749015>>19749016You are confusing Noir story with Spy story, that's what is infuriating. We are not in a sociopathic spy story. We are in a Noir story, and you seems to have some trouble to understand it's meaning.A Noir story is all about keeping the ever so rare friends even when they fuck up, friends we can trust. Mami is our light. She's the only one nice to us that we can remember at all. She was our only friends for a long time. She saved our life. She's the only one that has given any meaning to our life, until recently.And you are not unlike "she is sulking since yesterday because we killed her friend, BETTER MURDER HER IN HER SLEEP SO SHE WON'T BETRAY US".Protips : That's sociopathic, that's not Noir. And you have absolutely no excuse to advocate such an idea.And Alexander, that's not the first time you advocate the kill them all solution. I don't care about it, normally, but this is the straw that breaks the camel.
>>19749090A combination of painkillers, whisky and deadened emotions.
>>19749090thiswe just had our arm cut off, we're haunted by pink, we're worried about QB retiring us right now. Having to save Mami from herself should leave us a little bitchy right now.
>>19749121Did you even read that he said we wouldn't be retired for a good time yet?
>>19749090Because we are used to being a bitch and being under that amount of pressure.Also we vent that on Kyuubey since he is such a good punching bagMami has just had a very jarring lesson that pretty much shattered her worldview. For us that's old news
>>19749135>QB has a good time with Iori>"Welp that's that. Where's my execution stamp?"
>>19749121Well at least we know we have two chucklefucks in the thread, one tripfag and one anon
>>19749150Uh, what?>>19749156Also a namefag
While I agree on the "Having less friends in Noir is better"-Part that doesnt mean that we should throw out Mami of our inner circle. I mean, we don't even know if she is disappointed in us or just ashamed of herself.Even our cold and broken Homuhomu does in fact genuinely like her. And Mami is probably one of the few people around that does care about us. Heck, she probably is the only genuinly nice and unselfish person we've met so far. We don't want to lose that.Don't know about you guys, though, but more than being angry at Mami, her ratting us out to Kirika hurt way, way, way much more than Kirikas Blade and I think that if anything, we should at least tell her that.
>>19749161Basically this.Noir is very much about there being few people you can trust and sticking by them. That's why they often die to send the MC on whatever rampage they go on to get answers and revengeIn the end, all of them are still human and have failings. Ours is we are emotionally deadened and an utter cunt to be around, Mami's is that she still tries to be everyone's friend and have everyone get along
>>19749116I dont get what the hell you are talking about. Please stop posting, you make no sense. I never said anything about killing Mami, except a single joke I made two whole threads back. >>19749161People who like eachother still often fight. The difference is they make up later.
>>19749090"Friends" are what keep us sane and save our asses.We're used to that stress, we're used to the beating stick. Mami isn't. Its not like we have a shitton of people either.We can only mildly tolerate Kyouko in small dosesSayaka is a raging bitch every time we glance in her directionMisaka is...well Misaka.Iori is still recovering from an attempted rape+being splattered with her would be rapist's bloodWith all this shit, Mami is the only one that's nice to us, she's the only we can be around for an extended period of time.
Have any of you robots stoped to think about this from Mami's perspective? One of her friends was going to kill another one of her friends. She only 'betrayed' us because she thought that both parties could be reasoned with, and her friends wouldn't have to kill each other. Naieve, foolish, but she's not an evil backstabbing monster.
>>19749200Yes I get that but she isn't nice right now.Look at it this way. The one who was previously our shoulder to cry on, now only gives us the cold one.If that wouldn't make us feel abandoned then I don't know what will. We basically saved her life and and she hates us for it. There's no amount of alcohol and drugs (well maybe a lethal dose) that can make us immune to that.
>>19749190What, you don't understand the difference between the Noir genre and the Spy genre?I understood him perfectly fine, so obviously the problem is with you.
>>19749135Yeah.That just means the ink is dripping onto the order and the stamp hasn't fallen yet.We do one thing he doesn't like now and it's over
>>19749248Nice try, samefag. This has nothing to do with the difference between Spy and Noir. It's you making completely false comments on my supposed desire to kill everyone. I'm done talking to you as I don't want to disrespect Deculture with this shit any longer.
>>19749261>someone understands something you don't>MUST BE SAMEFAG
>>19749207>Have any of you robots stoped to think about this from Mami's perspective? One of her friends was going to kill another one of her friends. She only 'betrayed' us because she thought that both parties could be reasoned with, and her friends wouldn't have to kill each other. Naieve, foolish, but she's not an evil backstabbing monster.Of course I did consider it. And I am fully aware of it. The thing is.. In my opinion the intention you had while doing something like this, matters far more less than the outcome. So I don't really put it into the equation even if I like Mami.Because what..? Do you really wnat to go to her and start recounting why and how retarded her thinking was? It's pretty much all part o the Mami-Package.
>>19749261How about you just get the fuck out and take your asinine suggestions with you?Does it beggar belief that much that multiple other people consider your posts to be stupid and hate you for it?
>>19748892 >>19748826 >>19748802>>19748797"Ah, yes, of course. The question of your arm." Kyuubey blinks at you, before sitting back down on its haunches. "Unfortunately the one that was severed was much too damaged for us to try and salvage it, so I'll have to make you a new one. Please hand over your Soul Gem."You acquiesce immediately, taking your Soul Gem off the back of your left hand by biting at the edge and pulling away. You place it on the table in front of Kyuubey, who then places a forepaw on the very center of the purple diamond."As for a new place to stay, I'll see if I can't get you a place somewhere a bit more secure. Somewhere closer to Headquarters would be preferable. Give me a few days."It's then that your Soul Gem seems to spark, and you grunt slightly as you feel as if something is driving a hot spike into the stump of your right arm. Hastily, you undo the pin that keeps your sleeve folded up - just in time, too, as a newly-made arm, of flesh and bone, fills it. All fingers working, ability to grasp objects fine, ability to make rude gestures good."Stop being immature and listen, Matsuda." There's a chiding tone in Kyuubey's voice as he nudges your Soul Gem back to you, which you take and place back in its rightful position on your right hand. "Your Shield malfunctioning is regrettable, but I'm afraid I'm not at all qualified to look at it. I doubt anybody else in my staff is, either. Give it a few days, maybe not abuse it for a while, and see what happens. You can have Misaka look at it if the problems persist."
>>19749289Well my point is that the circumstances matter because it gives us an idea of whether/how it could happen again. So we know not to trust her with anything unpleasant to do with the other girls, but that doesn't mean we can never trust her with anything ever again like some are suggesting. I simply think some of the responses are a bit too black and white on issues.
>>19749336>purple diamondWouldn't that just be an amethyst or something
>>19749185> few people you can trust and sticking by them.> Ours is we are emotionally deadened and an utter cunt to be around,Then we are in character when we don't be caring all too much right? I don't mean to say we vent our fustrations at Mami, thats too stupid. Nor dp we go "I'm so sorry man, let me make you feel better" and try to hug her. That's too pre-stabbing Mami.>>19749207> Naieve, foolish, but she's not an evil backstabbing monster.She got herself and us almost dead by just being foolish.>>19749248> noir v spyThe ones I read recently has the MC getting shafted all day, erry day, all the time by everyone. But it's cyberpunk, Avery Cates series, but I digress.
>>19749207She's trying her damndest to make sure her little corner of the universe is brighter than the rest while believing in the inherent good in people; but she doesn't seem to accept that sometimes things have to be horrible. It's her most endearing trait, and it's probably why so many people are on good terms with her. If she overcomes her naivete, and comes to terms with the crappiness within her world but still retains that desire to improve things for the better, she'll be golden. If not, then she may give in to despair or violently snap one day.
>>19749242There is a thing that people do when having a falling out with someone.Its called "talking to them." Maybe you've heard of it before?Going with some of the suggestions here, logically we should find a private place and attempt to reach out to Mami and tell her our feelings about the situation. If she doesn't want to continue being our friend after hearing what we have to say, then so be it. But we should give her and ourselves time to sort through this. It hasn't even been a day since Kirika was retired.
>>19749364So she learned her lesson and won't do it again.Probably.
>>19749336This is about that failed attempt to stop time, right?We must remember that at that time, we dropped our Deagle.We should consider the possibility of not being able to use magic through whatever curse, if we are not in direct possession of VIII.If we do, despite avoiding, meet pinky again, ask her. "Is this your doing?"
>>19749383No, she'll try to rationalize it by blaming us.I call 90/10 odds on that
>>19749401...After she was stabbed?
Guys, we need to keep Mami alive. If for no other reason than that she's the only decent person here. I can just imagine that this Faust character is corrupting the magical girls for her own ends, maybe dominating all of them and doing horrible things to the world, maybe setting up FaustDonalds. Mami is the type to not get corrupted, because she'd never betray her friends.
I reject whatever our current theme may be and substitute my own.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2kIPdNJlFA
>>19749336I'm not liking having a QB-supplied apartment. I would have preferred getting one privately on our own, for our own security's sake.
>>19749364Somehow I think that you don't get her character at all. Either that or you just completly suck at reading between the lines.
>>19749410All the more reason to up the odds?>>19749414> Mami is the type to not get corrupted, because she'd never betray her friends.> not get corrupted> notOh fuck, let's keep an eye on her, in case Godtoka visits and she turns insane.
>>19749336The Incubator's chair swivels around to face the monitors fully. "As for the Magical Girl you captured, see if you can reveal who she's working for, like I told you before. If she's too stubborn, you can dispose of her any way you want, just don't make too much of a mess."You thank him. Only seems proper, after all. He just gave you back your arm."No need to thank me, Matsuda. Always here to give a hand to my agents if they need one."Ha ha. Very funny. Yes, that is a fake laugh, you mutant cat bastard jerk."Mami will lead you to the Silent Room for the interrogation. Until then, keep up the good work, Matsuda."You bow slightly to him, before walking out of the room, the doors automatically opening at your approach and closing behind you.At the receptionist's area, you see Iori studiously looking at her phone, and trying to ignore what seems to be someone sobbing loudly. At the desk, you see Mami is comforting what looks to be a young woman with long, pale brown hair and startlingly-clear green eyes. She is wearing a black armband too, and is crying into Mami's shoulder, who looks ready to cry herself."A-ah. Chiaki-san--" Mami's cold shoulder act seems to be put off a bit as she glances at your way, and it's then that the girl stops crying, glaring at your direction."W-wait, Oriko-san!" Mami tries.You see the slap coming, but you let it happen. It's weak, but it took your glasses right off, sending them clattering on the polished marble tile floor. "Y-You...you killed Kirika! You killed her like an ANIMAL!"Iori is stunned at this development, her eyes wide and speechless. Mami looks about the same, too.How do you respond?
>>197493811. You may have found this out, and if not, you will some day. Talking to people can be VERY hard.2. I have mentioned this a few times already, I'm all for giving Mami one more chance. Talk to her, please, but if it doesn't work we are not the type to keep taking shit, I'm sure you understand.3. It being less than a day since we killed Kirika is also one of the reasons why we can't take a lot of shit right now. Last time I checked we were never really comfortable with idea of retiring a fellow magical girl. I'm not sure how heavy this weighs on us, but I'm fairly sure it plays a role, too.
>>19749261>>19749242The issue is that it is less than half a fucking day since we killed Kirika and you are expecting Mami to be thinking straight as far as that goes.If I I killed your friend in front of you I don't think you would be too well disposed to me for months even if it was to save your life
>>19749410She giving us the evil eye and silent treatment right now.She blames us, not herself for it. 90/10 odds
>>19749470"...Shall I send all the relatives of people Kirika killed off for her enjoyment your way then?"No fucking mercy for biggotery.
>>19749470have the big security apes throw her out on her assask, neutrally, Mami to take you to the questioning area
>>19749450Then you consider how a fundamentally decent person like Mami can be lied to and manipulated by our smiling pink-haired friend.
>>19749470Kirika snapped, killed innocents, stabbed Mami and almost killed me. If I didn't kill her I would have died and she would have continued to kill innocent people. By the time I killed her she was no longer the friend you once knew.
>>19749470"Actually, no I didn't. Kirika was kicking my ass. Misaka sniped her from across the street."
>>19749470Humans are a part of the kingdom animalia, yes.She was also out of control and had a civilian and principal death toll up near the thousands.
>>19749470Nothing I say will change what has happened. I regret that it came to this.Pick up your glasses, turn to Mami and ask her to take you to the Silent Room.
>>19749490I dont expect her to think straight. I expect her to act exactly the way she does. But just because we know why she acts like that doesn't mean we like it.>>19749470>Mami's cold shoulder act seems to be put off a bit as she glances at your wayThat's good news. Also apologize to Oriko. We havent apologized to her yet."Im sorry, there was no other way. Hate me if you want, but I too wish it could have been avoided." At least if she keeps hating us we have little reason to care, but I wouldn't suggest being a bitch right from the start, either.
>>19749475Actually we hated Kirika more than Kyuubey and that is an accomplishmentAbout all we have on our mind is that it is distasteful but done>>19749470Better than what she did to many including Mami. And it wouldn't have needed to be done if she had restrained herself
>>19749537>bringing other people into it to shift the blame from usNooooooooooooope
>>19749470She's grief-stricken and maybe hysterical about the loss of one of her friends. I am not sure if she'll listen to anything we say, even if we do mention that she did attempt to kill us after we tried talking to her, kidnapped Mami and gave her a nearly-fatal wound, and also killed a good deal of people who were trusting her with their lives.Perhaps we should just let her vent?
>>19749470To be fair, we only got her killed after she chopped our arm off.
>>19749470Misaka delivered the kill shot. I just got my ass whooped until she stood still for a second or two
>>19749470Don't retaliate. Stare at her until she leaves. Let her vent.It's likely that she'll never forgive us.
>>19749470Just let her vent on you
>>19749470"Kirika was gone long before I retired the person that was wearing her face."Or would you like to talk to the family and friends of the people she was supposed to protect, but then killed instead?"Also, Kirika's dossier said that Oriko wasn't told about Kirika's Magical Girl status. Who told her that?
To be fair, she delivered the first blow when I was trying to settle things peacefully.then she abducted one of my very few friends and stabbed her through the gut just to make a point.
>>19749545But we are more used to being disliked so it means little to us.Anyway tell Oriko that Kirika had it coming, if she was less of a cunt we might have been less willing to splatter her across the roof
>>19749545>Implying we couldn't avoid killing herI call bullshit
>>19749565Probably Kirika herself or if she is prescient then she saw it
>>19749511>>19749525>>19749534>>19749537Nope. That's where the sociopathy line lies.
>>19749549>>19749557>>19749562This. Just let the poor girl vent. We're strong enough to take it.>>19749565Wondering about that last part too.
>>19749364Obviously, you did not understand our protagonist at all. Maybe because you did not read the thread since the beginning ? Go to the archive.We are not emotionnaly dead. We are not a robot. We are a broken protagonist who've seen the worst of the worst - the kind of main character that need painkiller to live with herself.Murderface hate herself more than anything, she hate what she has becomes, she hate what she was forced to do to survive, she hate everything in heir life. She hates herself more than the world, because she's pitiful, and she know it. Everybody hate her, or want her dead, and she take pride in knowing that she's not the last of those haters. And yet, she strive to survive in a sorrowful world.That's why Mami is important to her. It's the only person that showed her even remotely any affection. She saved her life. She was her light for a long time. With the idol, now, maybe, she's the only person she really care about, and when Mami trows a tantrum, Murderface feels something dying in herself.That's Noir for you.
>>19749565Probably Mami. Given that Mami was just comforting her it seems Mami knows her. And Mami has already shown to be unable to keep secrets.
Magical Girl Friendship is Magic Questwhy are we taking this girl's shit? We don't know her, we'll never see her again, we didn't like her girlfriend.have the apes throw her out.
>>19749584I'll amend that, that's we lose all audience sympathy. And that's when we go into Faust mode.
>>19749594She has been shown to not keep secrets that can hurt her friendsQuite possibly Kirika hereself told Oriko.Notice she hasn't mentioned that Oriko was a magical girl just that we killed her so you guys are jumping to conclusions
>>19749613*Kirika was a magical girl.Either way she is a bitch we don't know who slapped us. Tell her to get over it and get out of our way
>>19749584>>19749603>explaining your actions in a perfectly rational way is somehow bad
She was killing people while on jobs. She nearly killed me when I merely was talking to her and she stabbed Mami when she was begging me to spare her. By the time I killed her she WAS a rabid animal.
>>19749585>>19749470Hysterical Dame needs to calm down. Let her vent until she tires herself out. But if she starts getting black-eyed, then we might need to do some shit.Not to mention that if we react strongly, we may get a re-lapse of black-eye ourselves.
Stop time. Pick up our glasses, call Pinky a cunt while we are there and tell Oriko that her friend was less than an animal by the time we went to take care of her
>>19749592Uh, I remember frisk-searching a rape victim and then telling Iori to take it like a man, shot up a room filled with rapists, kneecapped a magical girl with Iori freaking out, and then it's the Kirika episode. Which we apologised to Sayaka.
>>19749634Not to mention that before she was killed we did try to reason with her
>>19749682Uh, what does that have to do with anything, at all?
>>19749696that we aren't little miss happy cuddles?We can be rude to people? People we're never going to see again.Mami can stuff it if she think we're harsh on her. Her girlfriend almost killed us.
>>19749682Then you missed three introduction threads. And you did not understand any subtext in the following threads, excluding stuff blowing up.But better late than never.
>>19749682During the Iori incident she was just a principal we couldn't care less about and we were full paranoia. After the bloodbath we actually looked after Iori, cleaned her up and didn't leave without letting her have a way to contact usSayaka is weird since while we hate each other on principle it seems we can work with her and are able to reach an understanding when necessary. She is still as much of a bitch to us as we are to her for the most part
>>19749470Nobody kills an animal with an anti-material rifle.trollface.jpg
>>19749719>>19749592This was saying we aren't happy miss cuddles.Rude to people who could be a threat to those we're looking after.
Let her vent and ask Mami to take us to the Silent Room.
>>19749682>, I remember frisk-searching a rape victim Yeah and that was the dumbest thng "we" have done. Given the tone in the post where that happened I get the impression Deculture was trying to get across how fucking stupid sugestions like that are too.
>>19749769This.We nearly fucked up that mission by doing that as well. Hell we did fuck up the mission by doing that.
>>19749470Calmly pick up our glasses, put them back on, and calmly tell Oriko that Kirika got what was coming to her. She chose to cross the agency and suffered the consequences.
>>19749682Acting like that to protect someone from getting mentally broken and/or dead inside is understandable and was in-line with her best interests and her protection. Yayoi didn't need all of that, to be sure, but the safety of the client was #1 priority. It was a part of our job, and we decided to do it even if the client bitched about it and that one probably-dead security mook glared daggers at us for it. We even happened to be right about it in the end.This is a bit different. For one, we did play an active role in killing Oriko's friend (justified or not). She has some leeway in acting out her grief; so long as she doesn't cause serious harm to us or to our friends or our co-workers, it's okay. Secondly, we probably want pancakes in the future and to not accelerate Mami's descent into despair. Showing that we have some humanity left in us after all the alcohol and painkillers and killing could go a long way towards that.
>>19749769>>19749797Funny thing is that even with the frisk we didn't identify the "victim" as a fake.
"The wolfhound slaughtered the wolf. Poetic, isn't it?"
>>19749816Well it's not like she was wearing a fake moustache or anything. It was going to take a bit more than a frisk to undo her magic disguise.
>>19749847Also it's not like we knew her physically to notice any physical difference
>>19749816The frisk search was for weapons and was stupid. We had plenty of other ways to check which were willfully ignored in favour of basically groping her
>>19749470"She tried to kill me when I went to speak to her. Then Mami gave her a chance to get away and she got kidnapped and stabbed as a thank you."Pick up the glasses."Sorry but she was beyond saving."
>>19749905And fucking out Mami as the rat. Just outside QB's office no less.Genius.
>>19749905No mentioning Mami in this conversation. We're keeping her involvement in this quiet for now, remember?
Just let the poor girl vent. We're not heartless enough that we can't grasp people need that when it's not even been half a day since their friend was killed.
>>19749905>>19749922>>19749940Ho yeah that's stupid. Forget I said anything.
>>19749585 >>19749562 >>19749557>>19749544You turn to stare silently at the girl just as she slaps you again, even harder, at the very same cheek - and this one is hard enough to make you turn the other way, the blow stinging your cheek quite solidly. It seems that it took all she had left, however, as she suddenly stumbles forward, beating her fists weakly and ineffectively into your chest as she sobs brokenly."S-she was my only friend! The only friend I had! A-and now she's gone because of you...you took her away from me, and...and I have no one left! No one...!"She grabs at your collar with both hands as she cries into the front of your Magical Girl costume. Both your hands slack at your sides, you look down at her without a word. It's easier this way, you think. If she hates you, then at least she found something to hold onto. Nothing you say will change anything. No apology will heal a wound like that.You glance at Mami, and she nods, wiping at her own eyes. She walks forward and gently pulls Oriko off of you by the shoulders. Thankfully, Oriko allows herself to be led away, Mami murmuring gently to her, no doubt to calm her down.You turn around to pick up your glasses, when you see that Iori herself has picked it up and was dutifully waiting for a chance to give it back to you. You smile slightly and hold out your hand, and she places it on top of your palm. You thank her.
>>19749941I've just had an arm shoved out of my stumpI almost died 12 hours ago, by the hand of her bitchI just saw pink fucking grinning at me. I haven't even had enough to drink to handle that.Being a little gruff wouldn't be uncalled for
>>19749470she needs to vent grief, anger, pain and all that good stuff.nothing we say would do good, i suggest asking mami where the silent room is and walking there on our own while letting Mami and Iori handle Oriko for now.
>>19749941We aren't heartless enough to do it to our friendsRandom bitches who scream at us for killing psychopaths we are heartless enough towards
>>19749962"Chiaki-san, who was that?" Iori asks in hushed tones. "That girl Mami-san is with. Was she a friend of that girl who kidnapped Mami-san?"You don't really know her, but it's a good chance she is, you reply. "Ah, I see." Iori nods. "So, um, are we leaving now...?" Iori seems to be eager to get away from this place, and you don't blame her. The office has too much of an alien vibe to it, off-putting and unnerving.You tell her that she'll have to wait for you a bit more, as there's something you need to take care of first. You say that you will try not to be too long with it."A-ah, alright, Chiaki-san. I'll wait here."After a few moments, Mami joins you, with Oriko sitting by the receptionist's desk, clutching a glass of water in her shaking hands. "The elevator then, Chiaki-san." Mami says after a moment, and you follow her back into the elevator that brought you to this floor. As the doors close behind you, she presses the button for the subterranean levels - where Magical Girls trained, lived temporarily as recruits, and also where prisoners such as Midori were held.A moment, and Mami breaches the silence between you."Chiaki-san, I'm...sorry about Kirika-san. And I'm sorry, but I don't think I'll be able to forgive you just yet." She's not looking at you as she says this, rather, at the floor. Her eyes still shining wetly with tears.How do you reply?
>>19749470We should have warned QB about the golden weapons having a way of returning themselves to their owners.
>>19750047>less is more"i understand."we're going to need some liquor pretty soon.
>>19750047That is ok.It hasnt been long enough for anything to even sink in let alone anyone to come to terms with it.Give her an awkward hug while we do itThe important thing was you survived, I wouldn't have been able to stop myself if you had died
>>19750048We don't know if that happens yet. We are pretty sure it does but it hasn't actually done anything aside from come to hand when we had it nearby
>>19750047It had to be done.
>>19750047Nod in acknowledgement. Make a mental note to get more booze later.
>>19750105It would still be prudent to warn QB before it happens than try to come up with an excuse later when we suddenly are carrying weapons that should be locked up.
>>19750047A weak apology and saying we never wanted it to come to that will do. Tell her she's the only friend we've got and that we never wanted to hurt her.Sidenote: Just realized. QB seemed surprised that Iori could see him. We think there are other incubators out there...is it possible Iori is a magical girl?
>>19750047Well, just tell us next time you try to kill yourself. Keep quiet about what happened that morning.
>>19750135tell her to keep quiet*
>>19750130I think it is more She has the potentialI could see 365pro being a front for them to be magical girls though since it gives them reason to wear random cute outits and travel all over the world
>>19750047"I'm sorry it had to come to that, too. "I'll be waiting, for when you're ready."Honestly, even with hating Kirika that much, I think Chiaki is honestly sorry it had to come to that.Because we just got our arm cut off (though it got better), we lost our phone (with its diary!), and our favorite chair (don't care about the apartment, but the chair is the real loss there).
On the bright side there's no way Iori will be tempted to become a magic girl too after today.
>>19750158*765Pro I mean
>>19750174wait, we lost our chair?
>>19750174Can't we just move the chair?
>>19747138>QB Heavy Industries
>>19750084This.No point in discussing it now. There'll be time for that later.
>>19750174We didn't lose the chair though. That's where we sat with Iori helping us eat.And you better believe we are taking that thing with us when we move
So, MGNQ is taking potshots at Magia Rebuild (and chandoka) by having Faust be the Big Bad? Bueno.
>>19750174Also because we were never really comfortable with offing a fellow employee.>>19750048Huh, I thought I mentioned this.
>>19750199>>19750200As long as we're willing to go back to that apartment, that's possibly compromised by Yakuza, yeah, we can get our chair.
>>19750175Unfortunately this is a noir, so things are rarely ever easy or pleasant. It's just a matter of time until some bad shit happens to Matsuda and Iori naively makes a wish to help out.Given that even QB was surprised that Iori could see him and that Mastuda & Mami had previously thought that Iori had too bright of a future to have the potential as a magical girl, has our influence and the circumstances altered that?If we want to keep Iori away from contracting we need to find someway to get her out of the general hellhole that is Matsuda's life.
>>19750084Support.>>19750047Also add, "This might sound silly, but..." Serious face. "Don't talk to anyone with pink hair and creepy black eyes. Trust me on this."I'm concerned with Mami's current state as prime Pinky bait. Thoughts?
Oh man, I can see it now:You only have a second to choose who you save: Iori Mami Chair
>>19750262Good point. I can see Pinky going "here have this golden musket to protect your friends" and Mami falling into that trap with the best of intentions.
>>19750174Also, this too.
>>19750262Oh God we have to warn her
>>19750262Good call. Warn her.>>19750084Agreed. Was going to write a longer reply but that should do better. I hope we can still get along even if she doesn't forgive us, if only just enough to work together if the need arises.
I think it's high time to talk to Iori/Kyoko/Sayaka about Pinky, regarding the meeting.
>>19750321>IoriBefore anyone else.>KyokoMaybe>SayakaWat, why?
>>19750256We have to go back there anyway, kyuubey said moving us would take a few days.Not to mention we have tonnes of weapons etc there to move, and some booze>>19750282Umm uhh fuck idol, pancakes or chair? We can get a new chair but we can't get a new pancake dealer and we can't get a new idol who is sort of attached to us.That's the point where we top ourselves to save avoid the situation>>19750262Very good point, we should warn the other two as well. We may not like them as much but they deserve the heads up
>>19750338Because Sayaka is the most likely to accept help from Pinky, after Mami.
>>19747138>>19746791> Officio Assassinorum> 40kWe're the Vindicare, regular gun dudes.Culexus are anti-psyker / anti-magic people with skull helments. Callidus are shapeshifters. Eversor are basicallly Kirika with more drugs, more guns and requires refrigeration.Oh god I can see it too:> WHAT HAPPEN TO EMPRAH?!
While I can see warning the other three Magical Girls about Pinky having its merits, wouldn't QB do that himself, since he's identified the golden weapons and Pinky as a threat to his plans?Or is it better to getting it done first, even if they might not believe us?
>>19750377>QB IS the EmperorThen I killed myself
>>19750385QB might do it, but we shouldn't assume anything. Plus, it might help the trust us and having people you can actually trust is important in a noir.
>>19750385You never know with the Coobster. He may be willing to use one of them as a lab rat to observe the weapons mind altering effects.
>>19750385General feel is that we warn them, and cover our (their) ass first, if we can.Unless Godtoka is revealed to be some sort of god that gets stronger the more people believe she exists, or will pop up in your dreams and corrupt you once you know about her-And all this being JUST AS PLANNED, of course.
>>19750385>warn them>they dont habeeb>tell them to ask QB about itthat is, if QB wont have us retired for sharing such secrets, but I dont thin thats the case.
We should definitely warn Sayaka as she already was interested in the golden katana and probably wouldn't mind having a golden saber.
>>19750385It's out in the open. Coming from us may get us some brownie points with each of them. We'll have more resources for future missions and a smaller chance of having to retire them.QB may keep the info from them just to see what would happen if they were left in constant contact with Pinkie. He is willing to sacrifice his own people if he stands to gain anything from it, such as a better understanding of one's enemy.
>>19750427Nah, he had more reason to retire us already and he hasn't one more stupid decision today won't change that.Also Sayaka is more likely than Mami to trust Pinky since she was best friends with her before her death which may have been the cause of our amnesia
>>19750174 >>19750110 >>19750117>>19750084You glance at her just as she looks at you, and you give her a silent nod before turning away. That should be enough. She knows you the best, after all. It's not like you to be overly affectionate or cravenly apologetic - you take things in stride, do what's needed, and leave it at that. It's certainly gotten you your fair share of enemies, it's gotten you called some very creative slurs, and it does not help with your ever-shrinking social circle.But this, of course, is Mami, and a bit of extra effort should be necessary.You reach out and gently take her hand, lacing your fingers through hers, and giving it a soft squeeze. You hear her gasp at this, a sharply-drawn breath bordering on a sob, and it's then that you let go.The elevator proceeds in silence the rest of the way, and it soon opens at the Officio Assassinorum floor - ten stories below ground level. You tell Mami to keep Iori occupied while you're down here, and she murmurs her assent. She tells you to take care just as the doors close on her.
>>19750377>>19750389>QB is the EmperorActually they're quite similiar.Both don't give a single fuck about you and do nothing beside watching you struggle and fail while you fight the ruinous powers for them.
>>19750365Yeah i figured that after posting, but still, we hate her, no?It would be the smartest thing to do, but would Chiaki do it?
>>19750466Nigga, it's the Emperor's will alone that keeps the Warp at bay.
>>19750478While we dislike her mostly she helped us out with Kirika so we owe her one
>>19750478Murderface may not like the bitch, but that doesn't mean she wants to have to put her down. Hell, we hated Kirika and we still feel bad about having to kill her.
>>19750512>>19750494Alright, both are good points. I'm all for it then.
>>19750512Also we tolerate her girlfriend in reasonable doses so we wouldn't want to piss her off.And having one more person who would feel we are worth helping in a bind is always useful
>>19750464The floor you're on looks more of a typical office setting than anything - cubicles are aplenty, with your fellow magical girls in formal office uniform, clicking away at laptops. Contrary to knee-jerk assumptions, not all Magical Girls under Kyuubey's employ are field agents like you, Sayaka and Kyoko - there are others who perform other tasks that are just as crucial. Mission support, logistics, medical officers, research, even legal. You hear that there's even a PR department, although you're not quite sure how that works. What do they do, make posters and action figures of you or something?The mild level of chatter from the cubicles suddenly die out at your arrival, only to resurface again. This time, you hear the word "Murderface" being whispered quite often.You shrug at this, and make your way to the Silent Room - one of many holding cells for prisoners. This one is made especially for Magical Girls, in that it nullifies the magical powers of those occupying it.The guard posted there is a Magical Girl that you yourself have trained. With long black hair tied into twintails, a costume that looks more like a black schoolgirl outfit than anything else - and her soul gem a red crimson orb glaring from the center of a rather bulky metal belt buckle that's a bit oblong in shape, she brightens at your arrival and snaps you an eager salute."V-Vindicare in the premises! Murderface-sempai, g-good morning! The prisoner awaits!"Murderface-sempai. That sounds so horrible.
>>19750538We're starting this interrogation off right.Break her left thumb before we even say anything.Then ask her how her knees are doing.
>>19750538Wow, any person that could put up with us as a trainer and still see us in a positive light wins my respect. See if we can actually remember who she is. Then we get to channel our inner Jack Bauer on the prisoner.
>>19750538>>19750538I think it sounds cute.Alright, things to find out:>Does Emi have a golden weapon?>Who does she work for?>What is his/her goal?>What does she want out of it herself?>Seriously, does she have a golden fucking weapon?>Any other connection to recent events of magical girls going rogue/crazy/etc?
>>19750538>you hear the word "Murderface" being whispered quite often.So we're famous around the office. Probably for all the wrong reasons. Also, I love the idea of magic girl lawyers.
>>19750538Huh. Well, at least that part of our memory seems intact."Name's Matsuda Chiaki for today."Let's see how Midori handles waking up. Got no real desire to kill her, and I'd prefer to keep the interrogation professional.We're on the clock on this.
>>19750583>you're wrong>okat least it keep the courtrooms unclogged
>>19750583I like>>19750567B-baka! You c-can't h-handle the truth!
>>19750538>MurderfaceFor how long did we use this name since everyone seems to know us by it?
>>19750583>Your Honor, I object!>Overruled>Y-Your Honor! I strenuously object!>Overruled>nyoro~n
>>19750538"Please call me Chiaki."(with any luck she will then ask us to call her by first name, reminding it to us.)>The prisoner awaits!Retrieve Midori's soulgem."Not that she had a choice."
>>19750538You give her a small smile and ask her to put down her hand. Seniority doesn't require saluting."B-but of course they do! Seniority demands respect, and I don't know anyone else who deserves it more, Murderface-sempai!" The girl, who you remember is named Kumatora, replies, her crimson eyes shining with an inner fire. You give a small sigh, and pull down her hand for her. Kids will be kids.You tell her that you'll won't be long in the Silent Room. She nods, twintails wagging back and forth, before pulling the iron-cast door open for you.You thank her and step inside - immediately feeling the chill of the Anti-Magic Barrier Kyuubey himself has personally developed and placed to encompass the room. Shaking your hands to ward off the sudden chill, you step forward - and see Midori in her legless self, strapped to a gurney, her wounds bandaged and taken care of, but lifeless. You take her Soul Gem out of your inventory and give it a small jumpstart by tapping it against your own - and it's then that the body tied onto the gurney with thick leather straps start to breathe again. Long, gasping breaths.But something's weird. As the color and life returns to her face, Midori seems to be a bit...satisfied. Her cheeks blossoming red, her eyes glazed over. As soon as she starts breathing normally, it's then that she starts to giggle drunkenly.Drunkenly. How the hell did that happen--Wait. Weren't you using her Soul Gem as a whisky warmer for a while?...Yes, you have. Which will make this interrogation all the more interesting."You...you bitch. Why didn't you...j-just kill me?" Midori drawls, slurring her words. "Could've been professional with me toooo..."Wonderful. How do you begin this interrogation?
>>19750538Morning. Haven't seen you in a while. how's life been treating you?
>>19750617We're starting this interrogation off right.Break her left thumb before we even say anything.Then ask her how her knees are doing.reposting
>>19750583Magical Girl Jack McCoyDO IT
>>19750617"What? Don't you thinking torture is the most professional part of the job?"
>>19750617>>19750623No need to get physical right away. She's totally hammered, so I doubt physical pain would really affect her anyways. Start off of the standard "who are you and who do you work for" spiel and see if we can't get her to reveal something while her judgement is impaired.
>>19750617...Well. Physically coercing her is probably out of the question, but that rarely elicits productive cooperation anyway. However, her being sloshed out of her gourd may make talking much easier. Let's begin by taking a seat nearby, and get straight to the point. Ask her what she possibly saw in the company of a bunch of otaku commandos (who, we might remark, she ended up far better off than). If we ask the right questions and show enough restraint, we may get her whiskeyed tongue to slip more than simply intimidating her.
>>19750617Make sure to mark down the results of letting soul gems soak in a substance.Obtain a flask of truth serum later
>>19750617"Is that how you thank me for the quality liquor I *coughforcefullycough* gave you?""Either way, I'll be the one asking the questions here. If you answer them fully and honestly, I might just go easy on the torture to come."Seconding breaking her thumb before that though. That's going easy.
>>19750617Well I had to ask you some questions before killing you.Did you like the whiskey? I liked using your soul gem as a cooling cube
>>19750617"Because I needed answers to questions that you can answer."So, let's start, Midori. Who do you work for?"
>>19750617Wait so she is affected by what happens to her soulgem?Maybe we can find other "creative" ways to temper with it.
Oh wow, we can dunk our own soulgem in whiskey. Cool.
Torture actually works. You'll just have to start right.1. Hurt her.2. Hurt her more.3. Ask question you know answer to. Hurt her when answer wrong. Repeat until out of questions you know answer to.4. Hurt her.5. Subject should be cowed enough to be cooperative. Start asking real questions.
>>19750623>>19750689Physical injuries are not as effective in performing interrogations, contrary to Hollywood depictions of such.
>>19750617She is drunk so why don't we try talking to herShe is bound to let some thing slip
>>19750735good thing this isn't real life!>>19750733
Pity we didn't train this Kumatora.>>19750617"We were professional with you. You aren't dead." Just talk with her, she's drunk and likely to let secrets out naturally.I wonder if there's any chance of Midori and Matsuda becoming drinking buddies should MIdori cooperate and survive this.
>>19750733Torture will only make her tell us what she thinks we want to hear not the truth
>>19750733Torture is ore likely to get the subject to give the answers they think you want. As we know very little about Midori your plan is ineffectiveAlso we are semi lich magical girls. Physical torture is small time given we blew her legs offFinally she seems to be a lightweight and we just had her soul gem soaking in whiskey for the better part of a week. She is going to feel even less painMaybe if we tell her we won't cause her any problems but will use her soul gem to keep our whiskey cool it might help
>>19750708We could go all Mad Scientist on it AFTER the interrogation. PROFESSIONAL Mad Scientist. >Effects applied to Soul Gem:>Flame from blow-torchScreaming for the full duration of the effect. 147 dB. Wild flailing of the limbs.>Liquid NitrogenSee previous effects for first 39 seconds, followed by a transition to, eventually, a hybernation-like state after a total of 4 minutes 7 seconds.>etc>>19750717Cheaper on the booze. Try dissolvable painkillers too.
>>19750783An even better planWe keep our soul gem in a hip flask that we refillWe can get double smashed all day every day!
>>19750735A further point of emphasis in addition to this is that alcohol is a depressant, which subsequently means that it dulls pain. Midori is helpless right now as well as drunk, so it works more to our advantage to gain her cooperation by eroding her hostility and distrust of us while her inhibitions are compromised.
>>19750765I've personally got no reason to kill her. We're not being paid to do it, we're not going to get a Grief Seed from killing her, and generally killing her holds no interest. She's a captured, legless Magical Girl, a situation that we or our colleagues might find themselves in one day.Maybe we can float the offer of defection; it'll be interesting to see her reaction to it, at least.
>>19750803>>19750798Both of these. Experimenting is more fun, anyway, and if nothing else will give us lots of information about effects we can use and abuse to fight and get wasted.
>>19750803Agreed. We could even have her as a drinking buddy for when we feel like drinking alone is too boring
>>19750774>>19750776Not true. That's why you start asking questions that you know the right answer to. To show that you already know and are doing this only for your own amusement.I also know that this plan is useless in the given situation. I was only refuting the point that torture doesn't work, because it has been proven to do. You just need to know what you are doing.
>>19750830It does work but physical torture is still less effective than other means.That along with the Geneva convention is why it is less used
>>19750803>>19750828I agree>stockholm syndromeany of this before
>>19750689 >>19750670 >>19750665>>19750620You take the folding metal chair from the corner of the silent room - a rather dented and slightly chipped one, by the looks of it it's been used in many an interrogation - and unfold it beside Midori's gurney. You sit down, still holding her Soul Gem.You've...never really interrogated someone drunk before, unless you count looking at the bathroom mirror after you've puked yourself and questioning your life decisions.You start by asking her name, rank, and Incubator."S-Sakamoto Midori...Callidus." She murmurs after a moment. "And...and I can't tell you who I'm working for. N-not...can't, but won't. That's...that's a secret. Nuh-uh."Fine. You'll get back to that. You ask her why she went along with the otaku rapists."Why are you asking me thaaat? What...what kinda Magical Girl are you then, Murderfaaaaace?" Midori giggles again. "D-d'you ask yourself why you....you do things for that mutant cat of yours, just like I do mine? For the paycheck, of course! Didn't...agree with 'em where they got their kicks, f'course, but I...I needed the money!"
>>19750942She hiccups as if to punctuate her answer. Right now, she reminds you a lot about yourself, although you're not really that giggly when you're drunk...right?"L-look, I know...I know I'm in a bad place, here. I'm drunk, but I'm not shtupid." Midori reaches out with a hand, and you unconsciously grab it. "Y-y'can kill me whenever you want, right? Do whatever you want with me, and no one will care. I get that." She hiccups, again. "I don't...even mind when you blew my legs off. Part of the job, yeah?"She gives your hand a squeeze."Can you at least give my body back...t-to my folks when you do it? T-that's all I ask of you, Murderface."Huh. That's...unexpected.How do you proceed from here?
Ask her why she "needed the money." That may give us a clue as to what's going on.
>>19750950"You don't need to die and make your parents cry. So let's just talk."
>>19750950Midori, if you cooperate you aren't going to die. You can go see them and make up some excuse.For that I need some things from you though, if you can't tell me who your incubator is then maybe we can talk about other things. Do you know about a pink haired girl with black eyes?
>>19750950Why is she calling us Murderface? We never introduced ourselves to her as such, did we?Sure could be anyone at the Officio, but... I dunno. I'm kinda sticking with my paranoia here.
>>19750950Increase exposure to liquor. Make her talk more. Maybe start dousing in truth serum.
>>19750950Perhaps we could sway her a bit by subtly suggesting that her parents may not be in a safe place, now that she's failed her agency? They WERE paying her to videotape a rape of a well-known celebrity. If they're into that sort of stuff, they may not look too kindly upon her failure, and may retaliate against her family.Then we can suggest that more information to us can help her parents and/or other family stay safe.
>>19750995Iori was calling us that when the otaku's tried raping her didn't they? Either that or she has heard of usOr maybe she could heard us through her soul gem or got a glimpse of who we were when we jump started her
>>19750950I haven't killed you yet. Maybe you'll see them yourself?Now, how did you know my name?
>>19750950Haven't killed you yet. If you cooperate I won't have to.But if you refuse and it does come to that..... i'll make sure you get a proper funeral
>>19750995I'm pretty sure Midori simply knew of us before the mission. She did say she was going to spare us as "one professional to another".And let's go with the guilt trip of not wanting to disappoint her parents. That might make her talk.
>>19751014We never introduced ourselves to Iori as such either, so that seems unlikely.
Given the whispering as we made our way down here it could be that even magic girls at other agencies have heard of the famous murderface.
Why did she need the money?Has she been given similarly unpleasant missions before?>>19750825>>19750783Go back to bed Mengele.
hey, is /tg/'s main board 403'd for anyone else?
>>19751086Yeah saw that when I posted just now.
>>19751086All main boards.
>>19751086>>19751091Same here. How odd.
>>19751086>>19751091>>19751098How strange. I wonder what's going on? Site update?
>>19751076She works with rapist. It's not like she deserves any pity.
>>19751152Like we could choose not to work with rapists if QB thinks we have to.
>>19751020 >>19750994 >>19750977>>19750974You reassure the drunken Magical Girl that her being killed isn't on the table yet, and if she cooperates, she may be able to see her parents again. This is strangely out of character for you - your interrogations tend to do with a lot of screaming and beating.Times are changing, you suppose.She seems to brighten up slightly at the prospect of seeing her parents once more, and it's then that you ask her what she needs the money for, as well as how she learned of your name."Are...are you kiddin' me? Who hasn't heard of the legendary Vindicare Murderface?" Midori seems genuinely amused at the question. "You're...you're a goddamn legend! Th'only magical girl with the perfect time stop ability, with a kill tally rivaling that of Eversor Kure's...a-and the only one who managed to kill a clusterfuck of high-level Witches on her own! Y-you're like a fucking celebrity, Murderface! If I wasn't...a-all fucked up and tied down and shit, I'd ask for an autograph!"You never really pay much attention to other Magical Girls besides the one you're acquainted with, but this comes as a strange surprise. You're not too sure if this infamy is at all useful, either.
>>19751152Doesn't sound like she particularly enjoys it though, more like it's just for the money.Guessing parents are hospitalized or something and Midori needs the cash for a treatment, even if she has to do unsavory work.Good people being forced to do shitty things is about par for the course in a noir.
>>19751152I think it is mainly the fact she needed the money and we are going to find out a sob story,Then we get more booze out and have a drinking buddy
Guys if you want to check other boards & threads i suggest usinghttp://archive.foolz.us/tg
>>19751152I'm interested in understanding her motivations and her bosses' MO.
>>19751173Take out scrap of paper, sign it, put it in her pocket.Treating her kindly sees to have a disarming effect on her
>>19751173>EversorThat somewhat explains why she was crazy as shit
>>19751173Shit and now we have a fan girl.I suppose we have most of our pay gone on things like alcohol and pills but just how much do we get paid? Seems like magical girls must get a nice salary
>>19751173"A-as for the money, I...uh..." Midori hiccups again. "We're...not exactly well off. My mom and dad, we run a ramen joint. Mom makes the best noodles, but the shop's...not doing all that good. S-so I take what jobs I can get." She shakes her head. "I'm...not gonna apologize for what I did. I would have, a long time ago, but...I gotta do what I can, otherwise we end up on the street."You're silent at that. Sadly, that fact you're aware of. Many Magical Girls come from poor families - those who want to earn money the quickest way possible to help their family income. Of course, there are other faster, less savory ways, but you can certainly do better than contracting your life to a mutant cat.How do you react? What question do you ask next?
>>19751173I told you dawgs! I told you we wus famous!
>>19751162QB gives us alot of freedom in our missions it seems.Who know, we may get the choice to disobey that order.>>19751173>we're out of characterno shit, friendship is magic people wouldn't have it any other way.>>19751189this, ask her who she works forbreak her face if she doesn't say or gets smart
>>19751194Probably a melee classification, as much as anything. Wouldn't be surprised if Mami's a Vindicare as well, what with the rifles she uses.
>>19751189Seconding that.Maybe if we treat her nicely we will get a mole in the opposing organisation out of it. And if not we get a callidus that we can call for favors
>>19751199Ask how she got started as a magical girl. This will let us lead into asking who her boss is and what he/she/it wants.
>>19751199Ask her if she gets that kind of assignment often, and what else does she usualy get asked to do.
>>19751214>>19751189Hold on a minute guys. Let's sign an autograph, but don't give it to her until she's told us everything we want to know. Use it as an incentive.
>>19751173"So why did you take this job, knowing you'll 100% fail, and die, and with the guarantee that someone's gonna take revenge?"
>>19751199I wonder if Kyuubey would hire her to spy on the other incubator.Seems like his sort of action
Guys, I think the idol is getting to us and wearing away our grimy bitchiness coating
>>19751274too many people want to fuck is the problemthat has them being nice as possible and not stepping on toes
yeah we need to stop being all white knight about this shit. Noir means black, not white.
>>19751289Every fa/tg/uy wants to be the little girl, and every fa/tg/uy wants to be in the little girl lesbian relationship. That's just how things go.
>>19751289I think it is in part the sobriety we normally are too drunk to bother with this shit.Now we aren't as wasted and our emotions are getting through.Although I do want to flip this girl to our side either as a spy for us or as a spy in this other group
She's mildly cooperative now, but if she refuses to give up necessary information, I suggest we threaten her family. Tell her we'll be the one to kill them, but only after one of our famous interrogations.
>>19751305You are now realizing that all these magical girls were once fat guys.
Sorry to cut this short, but I have work in the morning, so I have to pause for now.Once again, thank you for participating! Sorry for this not being as exciting as the other threads.
>>19751305I want to les it up Misaka/Mami. I still voted to be bitchy with Mami though.My version of the character was still tired and sore and not up for dealing with retardedness.
If someone has a suggestion that is likely to be more effective than playing nice at this point I'd back it in a second but so far all of it is about as pathetic and lolevil as tripfag whatsisface's suggestions.
>>19751331I enjoyed it all the same. Thanks for running it.
>>19751331it was an info chapter.Anyday with a thread is a good one!
Just be more utilitarian. Be nice to Midori so long as it gets results. Start breaking fingers and threatening families if she won't talk.
>>19751331>Sorry for this not being as exciting as the other threads.I, for one, like sections like these. Thanks for the thread!
>>19751323Yeah if she starts getting difficult then we can put the Hirt and threats on.While she is being cooperative we can help her out, I just like the idea we could have our own spy running around helping us. Preferably on Kyuubey's money
>>19751331Thank you again for questing with us, Protoculture. You're always the best.
>>19751331It makes for a nice balance. All action all the time gets boring quickly enoughAnd the image of Homura flipping kyuubey off with her newly regenerated arm amuses me greatly
>>19751371we're gonna have to stop doing that soon too.Maybe we get QB to feel love if we're nicer!
>>19751399You're funny.>>19751331No worries, eh?
>>19751230>>19751258She had you locked down until Madoka used her psychic powers to save you.
>>19751331I actually enjoy those more than the "Action"-related stuff. Don't worry.
Why do we care who she was working for? I thought we killed her employers.
>>19751409It's the direction the thread is going.We're going try making up with Sayaka, even though she had just a large a stake in the mission, just because she helped save her friend. She personally asked if we needed to be retired not even 12 hours ago. She wants to kill us. Why should we try being nicer?because Friendship is Magic!
>>19751451We just killed some idiots who hired her services. We want to find out who contracted her and is renting her out as well as find out what they want.
>>19751474>We want to find out who contracted her and is renting her outAh, okay. So why do we care about that part?I understand why QB cares, and I understand why we'd ask her (since he asked us to find out), but do we have any personal stake in this?
>>19751493knowing if their are anymore super-illusionist like her would be nice.
>>19751493I don't think we have a personal stake in it unless you count being friends with Iori. Otherwise we're just doing it because QB wants it and for curiosity's sake.
>>19751461Oh, and now we can't even do anything in self defense now against QB agents if we're alone with them. Because they'll say we went crazy.
>>19751563>Oh, and now we can't even do anything in self defense now against QB agents if we're alone with them. Because they'll say we went crazy.I think you'd probably be outvoted in a situation like that.
>>19751461It doesn't have to go in that direction at all. She helped us, we were civil in return. That does not have to lead to "making up" with her, nor should it.Frankly, your, and probably others' attitude towards the possibility of acting in a more humane manner kinda makes me want to drive towards it more, not that I'm around enough for that.>>19751563Now you're really carrying it too far. We've already hit crazy, with how nice we're being with people that aren't Mami or Misaka. Or Iori, now.
>>19751173>She seems to brighten up slightly at the prospect of seeing her parents once moreIt's no fun killing someone if they're already resigned to their fate, right? You have to give them hope first.
>>19751563Lying to QB would have made things worse as he clearly already knew about Pinky and all that shit and was just testing our loyalty. Plus, if our story didn't match up with Mami's, Sayaka's, and Misaka's debriefings it would only make us look bad as we would be clearly hiding things.
>>19751598we have several more golden weapons to go. who know how much we'll start changing. Sayaka might decide we too deadly to keep around before QB does. She already showing initiative on that front.
>>19751657It will take more than a second-rater like Sayaka to do us in. (Of course, that's what Kirika said about us too, but still.)
>>19751679We're the protagonist of a noir. We don't end up dead in a ditch until the end of the story.
>>19751715>We don't end up dead in a ditch until the end of the story.But us ending up dead in a ditch _would_ end the story.
>>19751679Yes, but she can strike first and fall back. Then she can say it was use that started it.We are the one going crazy after all, maybe we slipped a bit too much.
>>19751741It wouldn't be much of a story if we don't first get to the bottom of some conspiracy and see the darkness in the heart of man and all that, so we can't die before that happens.
>>19751785That's the point of it being interactivewe can fuck up
>>19751813I haven't seen many cyoas that end prematurely. Everyone else could potentially die so we should be careful, but Matsuda is unlikely to die before the end (barring a point of view change to a suddenly bitter and cynical Iori of course).
>>19751848I think we should have a chance of fucking it up and ending it.If we had taken Sayaka with us to the fight I'm sure we'd have died.
rolled 69 = 69>>19751657If it comes to that, we'll just have to show her she's just not good enough to do the job. Also: 404 soon, fellow questers.
