You are a Magical Girl, and you're back in your costume, all fresh and clean and brand-spanking new. Hell, you even showered before transforming. The accursed maid uniform - or rather, the bloody, crusty vestiges of fetishistic servitude you've been walking around for the better part of the night before - now probably on its way to the incinerator, along with Officio trash. Your shield at your right arm, your costume all crisp and clean - and hey, new glasses. Well, not really new - a spare pair that Mami had thoughtfully gifted you with, along with the original. Just in case you lost the first.

Reunited, and it feels so good.

You'd actually sing it, if you weren't feeling particularly sore with being up and about at this hour.

You have an idol to say goodbye to, after all.
>>
>>20045550

It's morning. Seven, maybe eight hours after you got home from the worst assignment you've ever had the dubious pleasure of fucking up.

Granted, it wasn't really a failure. It just didn't go exactly as you planned it. The principal got back home safely, of course, and those responsible for the affair have been reduced to biological matter courtesy of a repeated application of ballistic firepower - but it brought about certain things that you think you could have lived without. Things involving a certain pink-haired bitch that you are, frankly, getting sick of seeing in your nightmares. In your dreams.

But things came to a close well enough. None of the people you consider the closest thing to friends died in the operation, although there were a few close calls. You have found yet another reason to pick Misaka up, cuddle her, and tell her that she's the best little sister money could ever buy. You also managed to acquire your very own Callidus - a Magical Girl whose primary focus is subterfuge and espionage, a rare resource second only to the Culexus. You don't know if the fact that she's trying to actively get into your panties is a good thing or not.

In any case, she's now with you - in fact, she's your driver for now, in the company car that you had ridden in the night prior with Kyoko and Iori. You're in the passenger seat, the window rolled down as you enjoyed your morning smoke. Midori, to her credit, seems to be adjusting quite well to the idea of having a new employer - and she's not that bad a driver, even for someone who had just regained her legs five hours ago.

Where are you going? The Lovelace Residence, of course.

[1/2]
>>
>>20045558

[2/2]

Why? Because Kyuubey has arranged for you to leave for Siberia in five hours, and you need to say your goodbyes. And also decide on who you're going to take - Kyuubey has allowed you to pick two people to go with you on the trip. Minase Iori, of course, is exempt from such a trip.

"So, uh..." Midori has been sneaking glances at you the entire time she's been driving. You've directed her attention back to traffic a couple of times already, but you gave up after the first ten times. She's dressed rather conservatively - a black jacket with a hoodie, black cycling shorts ending in mid-thigh, black socks and running shoes. She looks like a damn parkour artist. "Who are you taking, Murderface?" She asks you for the tenth time this hour, her expression hopeful.

[]I'm still thinking.
[]{Name} and {Name}. We'll be picking them up in a little bit.
[]Just drive, please, Midori. Keep your eyes on the road.

Better to not tell too much.
>>
>>20045564
I'm still thinking
Misaka and Kyoko are probably the two we will take, and we should maybe assign Midori to watch Iori for us while we are away
>>
Fuck yes, Magical Girl Noir Quest. Tonight just became awesome.

>>20045564
[x]Just drive, please, Midori. Keep your eyes on the road.

She's already messed up one of our relationships by being too sensitive. Lets not let that happen again.

That's got to be the most spectacularly bad idea i've seen in a while.

>>20045564

[x] Just drive, please.

Things are about to get real tense here in a second. No need to complicate that with a traffic accident; keep your eyes on the road, Midori.
>>
[X]Kyoko and Midori.
Subterfuge, range and melee. Also lets us test out our new Callidus. If Midori's already coming along, would prefer Mami.
>>
Does Midori count towards our two people? We're definitely taking Misaka, and koyoko/Sayaka are probably insperable at the moment, all things considered. Do you think we could ask Mami to come along?
>>
just woke up. going for a smoke and dinner. keep going
>>
>>20045579
Sayaka might bitch if we take Kyouko.

[x]Just drive, please, Midori. Keep your eyes on the road.
>>
>>20045564
We should take Misaka for tech expertise and Midori to test her up on the field.
Kyouko should keep an eye on Iori (that and Sayaka will hate us even more if we take her).
>>
I've been waiting for this!

"Still thinking about it."

Also, the Siberia trip was part of accepting Kyubey's deal to keep using the gun at a 50/50 corruption chance, right? FUCK.

>>
>>20045579
I would say Misaka and Midori. Kyoko deserves some "recovery" time with Sakaya after getting her goddamn spine snapped in our service, and we might as well get to know Midori's abilities from the better end.

We should, of course, string her out for as long as possible for our own amusement

We should take Mami.

Misaka and Sayaka. We really should work on getting her to not want to stab us every time she sees us.
But for now
[x]Just drive, please, Midori. Keep your eyes on the road.

>taking Sayaka away from Kyoko
What
>>
>>20045630
Good question.
I think that Midori is a must and I also vote for Misaka.

Optionally Mami
>>
Can Misaka bring Tiny Pete along so she can fix him while we're there?
>>
>>20045647
Of course we are.
Chikai may come back to a world engulfed in horrible music and water but Kyoko deserves it.

>moot in charge of stable servers
>>
>>20045697
The servers are plenty stable.
The software that runs on them is twitchy as fuck, though. At least it doesn't crash. Much.
>>
>>20045697
But they're all like, loving, and stuff. Surely separating them for however long isn't going to do our reputation with either of them any favours?
>>
Is Midori being needy because she thinks we're going to take her soul gem with us and she'll be inactive, or just because she wants to follow us around and/or jump in our bed?
>>
>>20045735
Yes.
>>
>>20045735
Both, I believe
>>
>>20045740
>>20045743
And I don't suppose sleeping with her to shut her up/get it out of her system would help any, would it?
>>
>>20045751
Nope.
>>
>>20045628
That is awesome

Also I don't see why having Midori watch Iori under controlled circumstances is such a big deal.

Iori could be watched by Midori who is watched by Sayaka and Kyoko or Mami so that we can test Midori's skills and loyalty in a controlled way
>>
>>20045751
Signs point to 'no'. Though, we should probably reassure her that our absence doesn't mean her stasis now that she works for us.

During the illusion she saw Yayoi and after that a bloody corpse in a sea of blood AND she was mostly weeping in Chiaki's chest so yeah
>>
>Leaving Midori with Iori
Bad idea.

>Only being able to take either Misaka or Kyoko along.
This is worse, leave Midori with Iori.
>>
>>20045793
While I agree that overseeing is a bad idea, we can assess her reaction over the next few posts. We can also tell Iori that we can kill her whenever we feel like it, if it makes her feel better about anything. I guess all I'm saying is that they might get along. Iori already talked to her a heap before she found out she was fake, so Midori might just be the friend Iori needs to stop being all over us.

>>20045608 >>20045600 >>20045616

You've been thinking about who you're going to take the entire time since Kyuubey had told you about the trip. As much as you'd like to, you can't take everyone in your ever-dwindling social circle - there'd be too much of a vacuum left if you do. While Kyuubey can certainly afford to let one of his top Vindicares go on a short sabbatical, he certainly can't have his new Callidus, another Vindicare, and two of his highly-ranked Eversors unavailable for any assignments. Minase Iori is definitely out of the question, as the Officio's R&D isn't somewhere you take your principal under any circumstances.

You take a long drag off your cigarette, enough to nearly reduce it to its filter, before blowing the smoke out of the window leisurely. You've already thought of your decision, and you believe, under the current circumstances, it's the most sound. Some people will definitely not be pleased with it at all, but they can just eat cake.

"I'm taking you and Misaka." You murmur after a long, interminable silence. "You haven't met her before. My arms dealer. She's a bit weird, but that's just her way." You give her one of your trademark glares, your eyes narrowing behind your glasses. "You behave when she's around, and no funny stuff--" You're cut off as the car suddenly comes to a screeching halt, and the traffic behind your car suddenly erupts in irritated honking. "--HEY! EYES ON THE FUCKING ROAD, HANEGAWA!"

>>20045825

"S-sorry," Midori murmurs, properly cowed, cheeks flushing as she eases the company car back into motion and into the proper lane. "I-I was just...surprised, that's all. I've...I've never been overseas before. Not even on a mission. I've always been a local girl." She hazards another look at you, paling as she sees you still glaring at her. "I...thanks, Murderface. Thank you for choosing me."

You grumble at her before taking another cigarette from your pack, using the dying embers of your last one to light it.

Midori pales at that. "I...I was going to tell you, honest." She says this with the contrite air of a young child apologizing to a parent for being caught on a bare-faced lie. "I made up my mind that if you were going to actually...dispose of me, I'd give you my real name so you could give my body back to my parents. Back then, I wasn't really all that sure, s-so I just gave you my cover name. I wasn't trying to deceive you or anything, Murderface, honest--"

You cut her off there. Whatever her reasons were, she should be sure that it will be the last lie she'd ever utter to your face. You didn't need to remind her, of course, that her Soul Gem is attuned to yours - which means that you can send a kill-signal to shatter hers wherever she was. She'd been briefed about it earlier, anyway.

You also tell her to cut it out with the 'Murderface' crap. You're not particularly proud of the name. If she must refer to you, she should use your last name, Matsuda, with the proper honorific. You are not fucking around here, even if she's your very first subordinate.

"I-I promise. Yes, I promise." Midori is obviously taken aback by this approach of yours, but her expression is determined, crimson eyes gleaming. "I understand, Matsuda-sempai."

You raise an eyebrow at that. You tell her to say it again.

"Matsuda...sempai?" She obeys, one eyebrow quirking in slight confusion.

You turn away from her in order to breathe smoke out of the window, a small smile on your face.

It sounds SO much better than Murderface-sempai.

The drive to the Lovelace Mansion resumes in silence after that, Midori seemingly taking her role here as your personal attendant and flunkie with sufficient gravitas to shut up and let you enjoy the rest of the way in silence. Of course, her obvious giddiness about going on a trip with you to some unknown country is helping, by the way she seems to be giggling silently to herself every now and then. This you ignore - you're no ogre. You let people be who they are after all is said and done.

After a while, you finally reach your destination - and you're briefly stopped by the usual security asking for identification. You hand over yours - it's the card identifying Officio Assassinorum staff that comes with every company card - and they usher you in after having your description verified by the mansion security, which you know is currently making breakfast and bustling about in maid skirts at the moment.

Midori stops the car just at the driveway, where you can see Fabiola waiting for you, holding a closed umbrella behind her. She gives you a small wave and a smile, and you return it with a half-hearted one. Your assistant blinks at this, and nudges you with an elbow.

"H-hey, Murde--er, Matsuda-sempai. Who's the cute maid?"

"...Contact," You say as you unbuckle your seat belt. "Need to talk to her and a couple of people before we go." Of course, you didn't exactly tell Midori who else we were going to say our goodbyes to. "Stay here and wait for me. I won't be long."

"I'm coming with!" Midori makes to unbuckle her seat belt as well, and you blink at this. Insubordination, already?

Thank you.

Now then, we should start plotting, because we haven't plotted yet this session. It is truly it's own reward.

For starters, Midori seems surprised by Professional Murderface. We should probably start on impressing her with the necessity of being properly Professional while on the clock, which might get us an in on finding out if she plays with her targets without being too obvious.

Sorry Midori. You need to stay in the car for now.

You'll have plenty of time during the trip to be our shadow. Not that I approve, but I've resigned myself to that fact.

She's on the clock right now. We don't know how she behaved in her last job, but we *personally* expect a degree of professionalism while she's working for us. Stay with the car and await for further instruction.

>>20046207

Insist she stay in the car. We don't need drama between her and Iori right now, as well as the fact that she needs to learn to listen to instructions. We should leave her soul gem here though. If we can't trust her enough to leave her unattended for more than five minutes, then we may as well save ourselves the effort of babysitting and just hit the kill switch.

>>20046255
Eh, fair enough. It annoyed me a little, but not enough to start anything, since it's hardly fair to start to start a shitstorm over something so petty, especially when you're normally quite cool. Just thought I'd join in the chorus.

We already have many issues that will be festering while we are mecha bear hunting, if we mention we are training a new agent while we are away it gives us a better cover than "I am going to Siberia to fuck around with psychosis inducing weaponry"

Doubtful, pink works with people who are more easily corruptible, Midori also seems a bit too passive and not competitive enough for Pinky.

You resist the temptation to pinch the bridge of your nose - and you let out the sigh of the massively bereaved as you turn to address Midori, who seems to be chomping at the bit to get out of the car and get into the Mansion, to see just who Matsuda-sempai is about to meet.

You tell her, in no uncertain terms, that she must stay in the car. Since this is your first day together, you're going to make allowances - one of which being explaining the logic behind your order. You need someone to watch over the company car, and you need it ready to run by the time you get out - it saves time, since you're both on the clock, here. You have places to go and people to meet.

You then reiterate that your relationship, as of the moment, is a professional one. You shouldn't have to explain why you tell her to do things - her job, right now, is to obey you without question. You'll try not to be capricious about it, of course - you need a subordinate, not a lackey - but if you're in charge, then you ARE in charge, and you will have her ass for insubordination faster than she could spin a yarn.

Midori is once more cowed at this, and for a moment she looks like she's about to cry - but the determined expression comes over her face again, even though her eyes are still misty. "O-okay, Matsuda-sempai. I...I understand. I'll wait here."

You bite your lip to prevent yourself from saying anything else that might set off a disaster, before you nod silently and pull the door open. You'll steal her something nice to eat from the breakfast table, you say. She brightens up at that, at least slightly.

You close the door behind you, puffing furiously at your cigarette, and it's then that you make your way towards Fabiola, whose smile widens at your approach.

"Ah. No longer Pretend Maid, now Magical Girl. Your moniker is famous, I recognize your attire - Murderface, is it not?"

"Chiaki Matsuda," you reply stiffly. "Good morning, Fabiola."

"Good morning, Chiaki." She says your first name like it's the name of a fine dish, or fine aged wine. Usually, you'd object to someone you barely know just saying your first name like that, but right now you don't mind.

"Please, come in. My Master - and yours - is waiting for you in the Dining Hall. Breakfast has just been served."

She turns on her heel and makes to walk up the ivory steps leading to the massive double doors that serve as the main entrance to the mansion. You follow suit, falling in step behind her. Finding yourself unconsciously imitating her walk.

"I'm glad to see you safe and well, Chiaki." Fabiola says smoothly as the both of you come to a stop in front of the doors. She lifts a large iron ring bolted to the massive slabs of teak, and lets it drop twice - and it's then that the doors move, creaking loudly, until enough of a space is made between the both doors that the two of you could easily walk through, even abreast. You slip into the mansion after Fabiola - pointedly ignoring how ungodly rich the furnishings inside are. "Master was very concerned, as was Minase Iori-san."

Yeah, you got that last night. That's why you're here.

"Minase Iori-san was relieved when you called, though. At that time, we were in the Master's study. But..." Fabiola narrows her eyes at you as she leads you to the Dining Hall. "What did you say to her that had her crying so much? Even after the second time you called, she was still in tears. She cried herself to sleep, Chiaki."

She has also been in an, apparently, successful relationship for longer than we have been getting our emotionally deadened socially maladjusted self into this trouble.

She may, just may, be better equipped to evaluate and propose solutions for the many, many problems with our attempted harem than we are. Not that we particularly *want* a harem. But if this can get sorted out without multiple homicides, that'd be great.
>>
>>20046740

this please

I tire of us caving into the loli just because she's a loli.

>>
>>20046692

I think it's less that, and more "By all rights, the person who I idolize should have killed me and nobody would have batted an eye. But instead she gave me a second chance while ensuring that my parents who I sacrificed so much for will be well-provided for. She also gave me back my legs."

She is rather clingy, but she seemed to be rather enamored of Murderface. It would be healthier if she was more wary and suspicous of the situation, but assuming that her drunken story checks out, Chiaki may possibly be the only person who has ever shown any significant sliver of compassion or caring for her. Excluding her parents and other miscellaneous charity, of course.

going straight to "I want to suck on your muff all night long please!!!!!!!!!" is not how that'd work.

No we mostly cave because we feel sorry for her since she is going rather quickly down the path that lead chiaki to her current shithouse situation.

And nothing we have managed to do so far has diverted her from that path despite us trying to palm her off onto someone else less fucked up

To be fair, she had absorbed quite a lot of high-proof alchohol at that point.

Canonically, she knows the most about the magical girl system and is the most self-reliant. You have to be smart to make it on the streets, dig?

>>20046697
>not screwing up
>getting most of the partygoers killed

Pick one, dickface. Kyoko got her back broken and we needed Pinky to get our job started. If it weren't for Tiny Pete we'd have been completely fucked once Kilgore went full Daemon. Our princip is probably even more horribly scarred for life (making her more likely to be a vector for Pinky or becoming meguca).

We fucked up, you autist.
>>
>>20046769
We also drank with her and gave her a mind-shattering orgasm.
>>
>>20046824

How, exactly? That would have happened had we been present or not.
>>
>>20046791

True, true.

But that's assuming that she didn't already worship Murderface prior to the job. Midori may have been squee-ing over Murderface and Her Magical Murder Exploits™ long before this incarnation of Chiaki existed. Or that Midori was a perfectly mentally intact and physically healthy human during her tenure as a magical girl (unlikely).
>>
>>20046824
Not the guy you're talking to but It's not like we had any control over Kilgore.

We could've killed him right there, sure. In the hall full of people.
That would be acceptable.

Even though the outcome wasn't good, the decisions weren't bad
>>
>>20046824
I don't think we're on the same page.

The 'screwing up' we're currently considering is giving in to HUE and accidentally getting our new minion's rocks off with Iori on the line, after she'd tried to get ahold of us for hours.

That screwing up.
>>
>>20046824
Our job wasn't to protect the party-goers.
Our job was to protect the idol. Not only did we do that, but we save several of her friends to.

I'd say that we were successful.
>>
>>20046842
We don't actually know that and we may have been able to save the partygoers.
We did mostly bad,

>>20046808
>how the average 4chan poster wants the world to work

>>20046804

>>20046803
so if caving into the loli isn't working, why keep doing it? doing the same thing over and over when it fails is a sign of retardation.

>>20046824
>Oh boy, there was a Daemon Prince level enemy who had a huge kill team ready to kill everyone. Why didn't we stop him and save everyone?!?!?!?!?

We save our principal and her friends. Our backup did her job full well know how dangerous it was.

We went into a situation with no intel and hit a fucking killzone. We're fucking lucky(only because of Misaka caring about us) to come out alive with the loli intact.

Later, we really need to give Midori the full "golden guns are bad, mmmkay?" speech. She may be able to help stop Matsuda from going full Flesh of Fallen Angels mode with her illusions or something. At the very least she should be properly informed of all the problems that go with following around Matsuda.
Also, try to find some way to get Midori to meet with Iori without Iori freaking out or whatever. Matsuda's probably going to be stuck with both of them for a least a month, so she should endeavor to get the two to at least tolerate one another.

Again, how?

We didn't really have any indication that Kilgore was planning a murder orgy until after he had his Operators start operating operationally barring the exits and his murderharem start shanking people. At which point we removed our Principle from the scene in the most efficient manner possible.

Are you suggesting that shooting the dude in the head when we first met him, in the, at that time, peaceful, non-violent party would not have gotten us in MORE trouble? That may well be true, but it's entirely based on hindsight. At the time, we did as well as could be expected.

We keep doing it because to try hardball with her would cause everyone we know to simultaneously crack the shits with us.

"Ah. I would have wagered that it was something like that. Forgive me for being completely honest, Chiaki, but you are as tactful as a house on fire." This uncomfortable conversation is punctuated by the sounds of your heels clacking loudly on the polished marble with every step - a disturbing sound, considering that you see Fabiola wearing the exact same shoes, but making no sound whatsoever - even if she's keeping in pace with you, with no visible effort at all.

You turn towards her to try and explain, but she raises a hand to stop you, her face still set forward, not turning to look at you. "Please. Stop. There is no need to be specific, Chiaki. We have only met once - twice, if you count this occurence. Are you actually going to share things you'd rather keep to yourself to someone who is just as much a stranger as your new...subordinate, who you have coerced into waiting in your car?" Fabiola turns slightly towards you, finally, a smile on her face. "Have a care. Maids are notorious gossips - even more, those who carry armaments."

You shut up, then. Man, everyone is just giving you shit today.

[1/2]
>>
>>20046935
"The...Head Maid wishes to give you her thanks, too." It's then that Fabiola's voice changes slightly, subtly. You're not sure, but you hear just the slightest bit of...envy, from Fabiola, as well as quite the begrudging admiration. "She bids me to thank you for helping me get the Master to safety. She also apologizes for disposing of your MK 22 Tranquilizer pistol - she had to make sure Master would not hurt himself more with any firearms lying around in his possession."

You shake your head. That's fine. It's then that you narrow your eyes behind your glasses as you wonder about something.

Wait, where is the Head Maid, anyway?

"In the Dining Hall, serving the Master breakfast, along with Minase Iori. She is his Custodian, most of all." The maid smiles, before frowning slightly. "Although, I'm not sure for how much longer..."

>>20046917
I suppose he might be referring to the choice of having Chiaki stay behind in the room and shooting Kilgore/his operators/his murderharem as a distraction so that Fabiola could get our VIP's out in the confusion and drawing fire our way, possibly allowing the other bodyguards a chance to get their principals out as well.

Roberta not being the head maid is something that is very strange.

>>20046873
We were given a job by Fabiola to kill him. Kilgore homed in on us because he saw our golden DEAGLE BRAND DEAGLE. We saw his golden bracers and Fabiola confirmed he was one of the wielders when we were shooting the shit. We had a chance to blow his goddamned brains out and we didn't take it, which led to him going Daemon Prince and our getting visibly tainted by Pinky.

We had every reason in the world to shoot him pretty much on first principle and we didn't. That was a king hell fuckup. It's a minor miracle the other random idolm@ster girls made it out alive.

Yes but as everyone likes to say that's not in character for chiaki.

For the most part someone grabbing her would get off with a broken limb if lucky, we walked away entirely which was well outside the normal response we would have given for the circumstance
>>
>>20047015
Matsuda had told Iori of the problem and the two were trying to leave early under the lie of an important phone call. The only problem was Kilgore decided to stop Matsuda and start causing shit to go down.

If we don't get a chance to talk to her perhaps we should leave Iori a letter.

Plenty of reasons for and they are more fitting than the ones against in the situation

And before someone says time stop was broken we have no clue on it's status right now other than it failed against someone else with time manipulation abilities while refusing to use the golden deagle so pinky who regularly says fuck your time stop could have easily screwed us as well

Using an ability of unknown reliability and potentially disastrous sideffects, in the middle of a crowded room with a clear threat nearby and an adjacent principal is just about the stupidest thing we could have done.

We're good at *guns*. The fun thing about guns is that you can use them on people from far away, and then they can't punch you in the face with their fucking powerfists.

No I just think that we could have solved things much easier by not having him turn into a fucking daemon prince and being able to kill us the moment we got within arms reach was a better option.

And kyuubey knew there were golden weapons present and he gave us our deagle to test their effects. I don't think anything we could have done on that mission would have affected our chances of being retired any worse than what we did.

Did we or QB ever get the Super Sexy Fists of Fire? I imagine they're in lock up but I don't remember it ever being specified.

No use in complaining about the whole affair with Kilgore any more.

I suppose we screwed up by not telling her we were ok after the fact, after all we apparently see her as a friend and not some girl loaded up on unhealthy saviour worship.

Still, we're not married to Iori. Our responsibility is to ourselves (something we aren't good with being a drunken, pill popping amnesiac). So we apologise for not telling a friend we were ok, but then we do what we want regardless. Make sure she understands she can't come with us on assignments and she will have the agency look after her, maybe the Lovelaces will host for her for the duration, that Garcias kid seems alright.

Midori needs handled professionally. Between her hero worship and stockholm syndrome she's all kinds of needy right now. So how about we avoid the creepy 'soul gem experimentation' for our captives, magic BDSM isn't exactly what we're here for or the kind of reputation we're looking to garner.

Midori is no longer a captive, she's a subordinate. We're going to work with her. So far Deculture has got the tone right now we've recruited her, but I thought I'd better ask you guys not to get too creepy with her if only to avoid derailing our noir investigation for fetishism.

>>20047169
We also can stop time
The funny thing about that is it gives someone who is good at guns the ability to blow people's brains out from closer in without personal danger.
In fact we have been so fucking gun shy over it since it got fucked with by Kirika that even mentioning we could use it seems to set off everyone who thinks even testing it to find out will cause us to suddenly implode let alone using it in a situation where it is a good idea.
>>
>>20047214
It doesn't help that stopping time is pretty much a guaranteed Pinky visit which isn't good for our health.

>>
>>20047214

While you are within arms reach of someone with a golden weapon, and more to the point, your PRINCIPLE is within arms reach of someone with a golden weapon, is NOT THE TIME TO TEST WHETHER YOUR MARKEDLY UNRELIABLE TIMESTOP STILL WORKS.
>>
>>20047214
You forget our Stop Time ability is not working correctly at the moment and QB advised to avoid using it for some time.
>>
>>20047235
Because we weren't destined to encounter her in some way from the moment we knew Kilgore had a golden weapon right?

At least when we see her in time stop we can tell her to go fuck herself.
>>
>>20047243
>>20047251
>>20047248
It is not flat out broken and we were advised to go easy on it ie not use it for every situation but to save it for emergencies.

Like a gigantic mutant with golden armbands trying to get our shiny deagle that he definitely knew was special to add to his collection.

>"It's broken," Misaka murmurs. "The machine spirit of this device is broken. It is not whole. It is crying because it is not whole, and it cannot work as it should."

Fabiola lets out a sigh at this. "Even if I am worried, I do not know just what is ailing her, or if we could even help." It's then that she stops in her tracks, before turning to face you fully. "It is...considerate of you to ask, though. When I do find out, are you amenable to my asking for your assistance, once more? Of course I will not hold it against you if you are too occupied with your assignments or anything else, but...your consideration would be a boon, here."

You blink at this, before you shrug. Sure, why not? If she's not going to be a bitch about you not taking it, then you'll certainly keep yourself open for her.

"Excellent. Chiaki, you restore my faith in your kind." She bows, before resuming her walk down the corridor you're currently in. You strive to keep up, momentarily stunned at the developments at first.

She has that low of an opinion regarding Magical Girls, huh? Well, looking at yourself, you can see why.

After a few moments' worth of walking, you finally come to the Dining Hall. It's boringly impressive, and you try not to glance at the lurid oil paintings of family members looking quite constipated while sitting still for their portraits.

>>20047289
Yes see "cannot work as it should" nothing that says "shit doesn't work at all"

>>20047295

The unnecessarily-long dinner table is also present here, but instead of the usual setup where the lord of the mansion is sitting on one end and his guest on the other - Iori and Garcia are actually sitting side by side, talking rather animatedly with each other. Iori's even giggling at his jokes, and it doesn't look forced.

"Master. Minase Iori-sama." Fabiola calls, her voice echoing crisply in the cavernous dining room. "Chiaki Matsuda has arrived."

"Thank you, Fabiola," Garcia says after a moment, nodding at the maid before turning to you. "Ah, Matsuda-san! Please, join us for breakfast! It's Western, and Iori-san here told me how much you liked pancakes!"

He gestures towards the other end of the table closest to you - and you spy a place, already set up, a stack of pancakes already there. Perfectly-baked, perfectly-shaped, with just the right amount of syrup.

Except they're not made by a certain blonde girl you would kill for.

You glance at Iori. She seems to be doing her level best not to look at you.

What do you do in this situation?

Yeah. It means "don't rely on this in situations where it not working might mean the death of you or your primary unless you have no other choice".

If Kyuubi tries to make you a deal, you still need to put him in a woodchipper, though. That's a universal constant.

"Eh, I've seen worse." I responded. "How's Kamen Rider Stronger so far?"

"I've never seen much of tbe Showa-era Riders, honestly..." Takane trailed off.

"You'll be in for one hell of a ride. If you thought Fourze was cool, wait till you see Amazon!" I chirped.

"Ah! I can't wait! Loan me those DVDs!" Takane laughed.

"No, no. We gotta do this properly! First, the original Kamen Rider series!" I taunted back.

And we bantered on about Kamen Rider for a while. Pretty soon, the conversation flowed into uncomfortable territory.

"Doesn't Miss Tomoe watch them as well?" Takane asked.

"Are you kidding me? She eats this shit up when we're not watching old magical girl anime! If we didn't meet first, she'd have married Minami Kotaro! Not that I'd disapprove, of course, he's quite the l-"

>Iori isn't a magical girl, she has no soul gem.
YET.

She can see The Incubator, which means ETERNAL FUCKING VIGILANCE.

Still waiting for Iori to either wish that Matsuda would be happy, turning Matsuda into an emotion dead shell, or wishing that Matsuda would pay more attention to her, causing shit to constantly hit the fan forcing Matsuda to guard her indefinitely.

QB was surprised when Iori could see him. But then again, QB is also posing as the mascot to QB Heavy Industries so I don't know.

Actually, he specifically mentioned that Iori could see him for some reason. So I'm guessing that is not the case.

The deafening bang of the hospital door interrupted my little speech. Beyond the abused portal stood a perfectly poised, yet quivering angel of loveliness. On her face was a perfectly-executed Stepford Smile.

I have to admit, she looks lovely even when she's angry. What did Shakespeare say about women and anger again?

"Mi-miss Tomoe! I didn't notice you come in!" Takane, in a rare feat of being caught off-guard, stammered.

"In fact, Miss Shijou, weren't you about to leave?" I hinted, nudging Takane to the door.

"Oh gosh! I must be going! See you later!" And with that, Takane hurriedly rushed out.

Wordlessly, she proceeded to unpack a feast before my eyes. It's actually a bit early for lunch, but then again, home-cooked food tastes a lot better that hospital food.

A few minutes of awkward silence followed as we dug in. We'd usually be commenting on the food.

I attempt eye contact. She responds with that same Stepford Smile I saw earlier. But something's a bit off. Her eyes are wet, as if she's holding back tears.

The meal continues. I try to make a little small talk, but to no avail. I give up after a while and focus on finishing up the food.

The meal finished without incident. And again, the silent treatment. I wonder if she had overheard my little speech.

"Is, is there anything I can do to help?" I asked.

"It's okay. You just sit and rest." Her reply was nice-sounding, yet curt.

It was then our eyes meet. Those beautiful golden irises that enchanted me from the first moment we met were now showing a side of the woman in front of me. A side that I had seen many times. A side I had sworn to protect, up until my last breath. A side, I just realized, I had inadvertently revealed with my big fat mouth.

Her packing done, she turned around annd left, the door closing shut behind her.

"Mami! Wait! I was-"

"I see that you are well, for someone who almost bled to death." DAMMIT.

Hey. Thanks! I caught the 20/20 thread moments after it posted, but the 18/18 I totally missed.

I'm just glad someone else can archive. One thread got to page 14 before I decided to do it myself.

>>20047677

i would never have noticed that the numbering got messed up, glad i haven't been on time at archiving since thread 15.
