You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently in the air, en-route to Siberia. You're inside a rather spacious and very luxuriously-furnished Learjet 85. It's the company jet, not some impromptu chartered flying coffin - you figured that out from the garish logo glossily imprinted on its hull, as well as the fact that nearly half of the passenger seating has been taken out to give its fortunate occupants all the leg room they could possibly need, and more.It's just a shame that they couldn't have used the extra space to install a wet bar in this damn thing.
Hello DecultureI've been waiting for you.
>>20329840>private jet >no barfucking god cats, useless sacks of shit
>>20329840"I may ask you to sell your soul using underhanded means, but I will not facilitate alcoholism.""I have *some* standards, you know."
>>20329840You're weren't feeling all that up to exploring the luxury of a plane you'd never be able to normally afford a one-way trip in, so you've taken the very first seat you come across - the one that's nearest the passenger entrance. You'd lke to think it was coincidence that Midori took the seat directly beside you - well, across the center aisle, but she's close enough to see that you're just about to read a very interesting book, with it still shrink-wrapped and resting on your lap.Misaka had taken the seat facing you - and you have the nagging feeling that she'd picked that seat because of the window view, which she's currently admiring. The plushie version of Tiny Pete squeezed tightly in her arms, its cartoonishly-proportioned thunder hammer flopping about in one clawed fist.That reminds you of something. What's to become of Tiny Pete? Did Misaka just leave him in her warehouse, deactivated, with only disassembled weapons for company? Sure, for all intents and purposes, the guy is a robot - a huge, demon-killing robot at that - but that robot did save your life, and fought with a selfless bravery that you don't see much around anymore. You blink as you realize that you're actually concerned about him - and you're even using pronouns to refer to him, in fact, instead of just 'it'.You wonder if there's truth to the saying about girls being fond of oversized killing machines with tusks jutting out of their faces and fists the size of cars.There probably is. Funny as hell, that.
>>20329923In any case, you're in the air, and you have the best part of four hours to kill. You have a copy of the first volume of 'The Adventures of Miracle Midori and Murder Mayumi' on your lap. Your subordinate is still sneaking wary glances at you when she thinks you're not looking, and your arms dealer is busy admiring the view from her window.What do you do?Talk to Misaka.Talk to Midori.Start reading.Sleep the rest of the way.
>>20329927Talk to Misaka.we have to find out where we can go have our Vacation Hunting Party.then Start reading.
>>20329927Talk to Misaka.Ask her about the plushie and it's bigger brother
>>The plushie version of Tiny Pete squeezed tightly in her arms.For those who might not have seen it.
>>20329948I want oneAnd a regular terminator plushieThey could fight over my shelf and soul for the emperor / dark gods
>>20329927[x]Start reading.If the book gets dull, then [x]Fall asleep.
>>20329927need to ask how Tiny Pete is doing, he's the bro'est combat robot ever!would it be a fair idea to ask Midori if she wants to tell us anything else before we read it?i would like to know how long she has been at it and how many volumes there are currently.
>>20329927[x] Start reading.But just skim the dialogue to get a basic idea of the plot (if there is one...) and then[x] Talk to Midori.Comment on the (lack of) quality of the art/writing.
>>20329927There is one thing we should do .Go to the front of the plane. >Knock on the door.Answer "Can I speak to the pilot?". > Meet pilotThen ask "Is the auto pilot on?">If yesPunch pilot in the face, not hard enough for him to black out.>If asked "Why did you do that?"Answer "I was asked to do that"All in deadpan
>>20329938This, I've been waiting for mecha-bears to come up for so long.>>20329966... let's wait till after we land.
I'm voting to [X]Talk to Midori.
>>20329966Mami said to do that after we land.
>>20329966We were told to do that when we arrived.>>20329963I think we should give honest critique. If the books good, we should at least grunt at her in appreciation. If it is actually terrible then we can tease her about the flat characters or terrible shading.
>>20329927[X]Start reading.We begin the experiment.
>>20329927Start reading, asking for the author's comment along the way."You wanted trust, right?"
First time in this quest. do you guys have a Sayaka somewhere?if not, I'll take my leave...
>>20329927>Talk to Misaka.Ask what the hell she was looking at on the plane, then make sure Bro Pete is good.Start reading As slowly as possible. Make as much noise as possible turning the pages.
So what do we know?>Mami asked us for forgiveness for being a total bitch when we killed her best friend.She shouldn't be asking this. Ever. It's wrong and it frightens me.>Mami nominated us for Warmaster, aka great power she was about get herself.It's fairly obvious she's planning SOMETHING, and knowing us it's not good. Only a dumb or very evil person would make Murderface a warmaster. Admit it, we're known mostly for fucking shit up regardless of whether or not we're supposed to protect it.Either that or Mami has the hots for us which is nigh impossible considering outselves and if true is probably worse than the alternative.Actually, there's another important detail implied here. >QB allows for voting to decide the Warmaster.There must be a reason why he doesn't simply pick one himself, or at least GIVE THE ILLUSION that he doesn't.>Mami instructed us to hit someone.Maybe nothing special, but it didn't strike me as very Mami-like. At least not the Mami we should know.>We're off to Russia leaving everything important to us, minus Misaka, behind. Which admittedly isn't much but should be mentioned.Let's be prepared to return to some deep shit if we ever saw any.
>>20330000lol minor GET>We have a 50% chance of finding a potential solution to the golden corruption thing.We *may* be able to increase our chances if we play this right. Let's not fuck this up. We gotta be clever, and not think with our magical girly bits for once. (Not that anyone's going to listen, of course.)This also means there's a large chance of getting into even deeper shit.>QB has expressed his interest in having us use the Golden Weapons more often, if not solely, despite knowing what they do.This leaves two possibilities. He either knows something we don't that may let us stay sane despite that (not very likely), or he wants us to go off the deep end like Ms. Pig Sticker and go full Faust (very likely).>The old Warmaster is known as The Betrayer. Enough said. Be polite, be professional, be prepared to kill her at any given time.>Everyone reads porn of us.I'm not yet sure what to think of this.>Five letter words of significanceKharnKyuby (in b4 that's spelled wrong)MagicPlease add the most relevant words you can think of.
>>20329997She's in Japan giving soul cunnilingus right now
>>20329997She's back in the city currently trying out the magic of soul gem licking with her red haired lover.
Do we have a red marker? Circle all the bad bits.
>>20329966Probably not a great idea to do that while the plane is in the air. Chiaki must be patient.>[x]Start reading.>[x]Talk to Midori.We may also want to give Midori a grief seed or two when we get the chance. She used a lot of her power to fool and paralyze us during the Iori Protection job AND as far as we know, she has not had the chance to cleanse her soul gem yet. While she may have been cleansed during her time as a guest of the QB corporation, we should check to make sure.Another notable thing to remember is that the girl who witchified at the start of the quest at Mami's place used to work for Midori's former boss. We may want to ask Midori about more details about that, or if she recognized the girl who went full witch.
>>20330013We're not wasting resources on her just yet. Maybe if the Russkie base as some.
>>20330002>>On QB wanting us to use the Golden weapons.Should also be noted that it could simply be that he considers Chiaki expendable and is fine with her going down the path of corruption, so long as it nets him some insight into Faust's MO and objectives. Also, The Betrayer was our former partner and we don't remember anything about her. Go, go amnesia!
>>20330020There's no harm in checking. Give if blacklevels are dangerously high.
>>20330029Who would consider a Warmaster(-in-training) expendable? Yeah, me neither.
>>20330029What are the chances that in this wierd mirror universe that we are in, QB is actually a pretty nice guy who wants the best for everyone?
>>20330013That is why I said we should ask if the autopilot is on.Anyway, onto questions presented before us.>[x]Start reading.We shouldn't try to tease Midori.Thinking about Tiny Pete, I am guessing that when we get to the R&R building Misaka will teleport Tiny Pete in and resume fixing him.
>>20330029That was the risk in telling him. We can politely decline using the golden weapons unless he gives us a good reason.>>20330041He still have Mami. I sure he could easily make the Betrayer an offer she'd take too.Remember, we are always expendable even if we reach Godhood.
>>20330044There is a doujin of that.
>>20330041>>Who would consider a Warmaster(-in-training) expendable? Kyubey. In the long run, ALL magical girls are expendable against the threat of a moon sized grief seed. Besides, Chiaki has a long history of insubordination and killing annoying Principals. Maybe not as notorious as Kirika, but it's been mentioned time and again.Besides, emotionless alien mutant cat. Who knows what's going through his mind?
>>20330008>>20330004>redblue shipping is canonI'm in
Why have we not asked Misaka for a Tiny Pete doll? I propose we rectify this.
>>20330074Maybe when we get back, and we can hide it in our room so nobody knows we keep cute things.
How's the journal app on the phone doing?I saw that no one else had sperged out and assembled the journal entries we've seen so far into one pic yet, so i went ahead and took that plunge.
>>20330066>>20330044There is only one thing that is certain for Puella Magi.Once you except that contract, your days are numbered. You cannot prevent your days from ending, only delay the inevitable. The only variable is.Will you die in combat?Or will you BECOME THE THING YOU HATE!Which is why Mami's situation strikes me as odd.
>>20330092Just make sure not too hug it too hard while drunk. Might accidentally active the self-destruct mechanism.You know, because Misaka.
>>20330095Oooh, good idea. We have a long flight ahead of us, so hopefully we'll get a few more. You up for adding them to the list?
>>20330119Or are we still locked out?
>>20330002>Five-letter words of significanceOh boy. I have a whole list, here's just the ones I like the odds on:Moira (one of the greek fates)NachtTarot (some themes in common with the gold weapons)GriefHeartWoundTruthKharnGreta (for Gretchen, from Faust)Karma4chan (Hurr)
>>20330074>>20330100I feel king of stupid for asking this, but is that Misaka from the To Aru universe?
Reading Chiaki's worries over Pete being left alone just gave me an odd idea: Misaka probably cares more for Pete than Chiaki. Chances that she moved the AI to the doll so that he wouldn't feel lonely in the warehouse?
>>20330141She's probably Last Order, after a few years and into guns.
>>20330000She is asking for an apology because she realized her best friend was gone when she stabbed her.There is more power to someone behind the ruler than the ruler, Especially if they are trusted.QB in this timeline is much different to canon, he is still calculating but he is working on something elsePersonal thing that we don't understand, she did mention for it to not be a hard hit.No argument thereThere isn't much we can do to influence the chance beyond trying to work with itWe are already crazy, maybe he is banking on us avoiding the added crazy by being past it alreadyShe also has a history with usSomething that we need to exploit ASAP.
>>20330141kinda, she's our weapons dealer. Please read some the lastest threads so your up to speed, Op takes up to an hour between posts http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Quest
>>20330166Not paranoid enough, but feel free to try again.
>>20330171*you'reenglish, how does it work.
>>20330119Yeah, sure, you betcha.At any rate, even if i don't do it personally, the image is out there to be added to by anyone with eyes and MSPaint.
>>20330176Stop trying to lead the quest about on your own. Other people are allowed to have opinions and participate.
>>20330189until they get us killed.then there won't be a quest!
>>20330197All quests must end. You can be as paranoid as you like, but I'd appreciate if you kept things civil, is all.
>>20329962 >>20329947 >>20329938You pointedly ignore Midori's alarmed, desperate stare as you finally prise off the rest of the shrink-wrapped plastic covering the doujin - and at the same time, you call your arms dealer's attention. Misaka takes a moment to tear herself away from the window to look at you, a questioning expression on her face.Making a show of flipping through the doujin's pages without looking at it - it's a thick volume, that's for sure, and you catch a whiff of that nice scent that all freshly-opened books seem to have - you ask her about her plushie's bigger cousin. After all, didn't she leave him with his repairs incomplete? The last you saw of him, he was still waiting for his other arm to be reattached."Ah, is okay, Murderface!" Misaka beams at you as she reaches up with both hands to slip off the goggles you'd always seen her wear. "Misaka will complete Tiny Pete's repairs in Kamchatka base! This one will just activate teleportation beacon as soon as we arrive! Easier than disassembling him and shipping him over piece by piece, ahaha!" She takes one of the plush terminator's floppy, oversized arms and waves at you with it. "Misaka is touched that you are concerned about Tiny Pete, though! Will make sure that he knows that Murderface is thinking of him!"You nod. That makes much more sense, yes. And that's...sweet, you suppose.Ask her another question.Leave it at that, and start reading. You've got porn of yourself to look at.
>>20330176I have been here since the start and am simply playing devils advocate as I have before.Being too paranoid will hurt us more than not being paranoid enough
>>20330206Read that porn!
>>20330206[x]Ask her another question.Ask if we've met her brother before, and what she knows of our relationship with Kharn.
>>20330206Ask her where we can get a plushie like that.The cross was useful but rather visible, the plushie on the other hand is something you would expect a girl to have, even if the subject matter is a bit weird
>>20330226Lets do this
>>20330206[X]Leave it at that, and start reading. You've got porn of yourself to look at.The time has come.
>>20330237We have hours to look at porn of ourself.Talk to Misaka first
>>20330211Somehow I can't help but think that there's an image that would be appropriate for this paranoia talk.
>>20330247Same.I can't think of what it would be though.
>>20330206we should ask Misaka what her brother is like, if she remembers.
>>20330206Ask her another question.Vacation. Hunting. Party. you hurting me here.
>>20330211Just make sure that you pay attention, and don't suggest things like....Insisting that the anti-magic room who's effect on was as been constantly stated in text could be fake.Anyways we should keep reading. I am curious about what Midori's idealised version of us is like.
>>20330280Considering Mami has a golden weapon and she's everyone's waifu still, we can't.
>>20330278Funnily enough in that chain of events I continually reminded the people that things took place in an anti magic room.There is being devils advocate and there is being retarded. I like to avoid the latter
>>20330309To be honest if her having the weapon means we get the chance to be lead into killing everyone else and having pancakes stay on our side I think it is a fair trade.
Having a spectrum of people is good, as long as we can stay civil.
>>20330321We THINK we were in an anti-magic room. Illusionist, remember?
>>20330359>I cast detect stupidity
>>20330330You know, we should really find out if Mami is getting a steady supply of grief seeds. The retiring thing STILL strikes me as odd.
>>20330386She probably had a few hundred thousand from being so good at her job but it is worth checkingI would expect kyuubey to keep her supplied anyway since he seems to value her most of all the employees he has
>>20330264 >>20330229 >>20330226You decide to talk to your arms dealer a bit more. You have hours to look at porn, seriously, and since it's getting close to Misaka's bedtime, you may as well ask the questions you desperately need answers to.Like where she got that plushie, for instance."Ah, you mean Big Pete?" Misaka grins, clearly proud of the toy's clever nomenclature, and she holds it out to you with both arms. "Sayaka-san made it for Misaka! She says it is thanks for Tiny Pete helping Murderface and Kyoko-san in mansion! It is very cute, yes? Sayaka-san even got tusks and spikes right! Also, screaming demon skull with wings on right pauldron!"Sayaka...? Well, you didn't expect this, but for some reason it also makes sense. And Misaka's right, the blue-haired bitch did get a lot of the details right, including the tusks. Not something you really see everyday, at that.You slap the book against your arm rest a couple of times, making Midori visibly flinch with each impact as you ask yet another question. Well, two - the first being about Misaka's brother, and the other about how the bear hunting is in Siberia."Hm? Ah, Misaka's brother..." The young girl's expression turns thoughtful. "Misaka's brother is really smart! But Misaka is smarter than him, definitely!" It's then that she frowns. "Although, Misaka really questions his decisions, sometimes...he did something with his hair, ah, make it all ugly white instead of nice brown, like Misaka's! Now he looks like he has a mop on his head!"Right. So the guy bleached his hair. That really didn't help. And the bear hunting?[1/2]
>>20330386As odd as Kyouko's eye not regrowing?
>>20330395"Ah, bear hunting in Kamchatka is good! The forest very near R&D base has lots of bears! Too many to count, sometimes, and each one really big!" Misaka spreads her arms wide. "Is one of the reasons why Tiny Pete is coming along - Misaka wants to see if Tiny Pete's AI is good enough to handle multiple targets!"Wow. You feel sorry for the bears already.Do you have any more questions for your arms dealer?No, that's all. Let's get to reading porn.Actually, there is. Ask her another question.Do something else.
>>20330206Doujin time it is.
[X]No, that's all. Let's get to reading porn.Let's get to it
>>20330413[x]Do something else. Try to mess with Green for as long as possible.
[X]No, that's all. Let's get to reading porn.
>>20330413>[x]Do something elseIf we can get the broblerones without destroying the gift wrap, we should give Misaka her share of the bad idea chocolate.
>>20330413Pat her on the head and give her some chocolate. She's been a good girl, hasn't even taken apart the in-flight entertainment systems.Then dig into that porn.
>>20330395>White hairHoly fuck, no! Oh god, no!
>>20330413No, porn time now
>>20330413Chocolate time! We promised remember?
>>20330440As interesting as Accelerator-Older-brother is, I want to get on with the doujin.
>>20330438>>20330439Chocolate? Before bed? It's like you're gone full Murderface and what her to have a sugar tantrum. IF she's a good girl, she can have some tomorrow.
>>20330438Shit we did promise her ours as wellHand Misaka bad idea chocolate and read porn
>>20330413>No, that's all. Let's get to reading porn.We should discuss the doujin with Midori as we read for maximum embarrassment. Though while Misaka is still awake we should keep it to innocent questions such as how long has she been drawing for and how popular is her work (especially how popular around the officio).
>>20330413[x]No, that's all. Let's get to reading porn.
>>20330457>>20330439>>20330438We got a broblerone for Midori too, right? Some way through the doujin, go to talk to her, but instead of saying anything, give her the chocolate and go back to reading.
>>20330470>give her the chocolate...Hisao?
>>20330413>really big bears>to many to count>Akakabuto comesif you put off reading that doujin Midori will probably try to talk us out of reading it.we promised chocolate... i might have skimmed through that part but are they really drugged?
>>20330495If they're genuine Broblerones, then they're made of roughly equal parts chocolate and THC.
Meant to post this in one of the last threads for the trip to the airport, but better late than never.
>>20330502Does Misaka actually wear overalls mainly?When she was working on tiny Pete she was wearing Misaka's school uniform
>>20330500that's... not as bad as it could have been, i hope you are right.
>>20330509Don't worry, she enjoys it.
>>20329948Oh god. My heart.
>>20330511I went with the outfit someone else drew her in for quest fanart, since I wasn't sure if she wore the school outfit everywhere or not.
>>20330502I don't see our elephant guns. How can we go hunting without those?
>>20330547Ah ok, just seems everyone draws her in it so I wasn't sure
>>20330548>They're in Chiaki's shield>Illusion magic>Tiny Pete has them for when he gets called over>We shipped them ahead>We has special agents plant them on the plane for us discretelyChoose your own (excuse) adventure!
>>20330557You forgot:>Misaka is going to make them
>>20330511>>20330547She was initially described as wearing a school uniform, but later descriptions would switch to overalls. I guess Misaka got tired of flashing Murderface every time she stopped by to get new guns.
>>20330577>I guess Misaka got tired of flashing MurderfaceDon't be silly.
>>20330587Misaka is a good girl.
>>20330577>>20330587Flashing Murderface the same way over and over again would get stale. Misaka is an inventor and would need to find new fresh ways to make things awkward.
>>20330577She was only described as wearing each about once.
>>20330413[x]Continue to tap the book meaningfully while asking Misaka about the guns we're going to use.
>>20330662It is a bit ambiguous come now that you mention it
>>20330413Read. Time to make melon-hair squirm.
>>20330255>>20330247>>20330280Looky what I found on the twitter... just for you guys! Artist is https://twitter.com/maiikariThat said, I think the most salient Mami question is the Golden Musket. She's had one for over two years, as far as we can tell with our meta knowledge. Two years and she hasn't gone crazy (as far as we can tell), nor has she told anyone (other then Kyubei, as it seems out of character for her to NOT tell him). However, he has not chosen to experiment on them until NOW, when multiple are spotted and we've had our first employee death. I think yes, we ARE much more expendable then Mami, and not a single character seems to think otherwise. Even Chiaki seems like she would willingly take the hit to save Mami pain. I think we can trust Mami's reasons and explanation on why she wants us to be Warmaster; especially after (in her eyes) she horribly failed the 'Save Kirika' sidequest she sent her friend on, I believe her when she says she's setting us up because she wants us to be better. Kyubei, not so much. He doesn't care about us; by nature magical girls are expendable in the long game that he ALWAYS is focused on (though he does seem curiously fond of Mami). He's giving us little perks to keep us loyal and doing what he wants, and this vacation and promotion are just that. As long as we willingly go and test the Gold Weapons for him, he gets what he wants and doesn't have to sacrifice more loyal and valuable employee's like Mami. Right now we're playing his game at his tempo, so yeah, we're going to get rewarded like a good little pet with money, vacation, promotions, bitches, and other job benefits. He doesn't understand humans, but he does seem to understand our urge to collect STUFF, and he's happy to play Sugar Daddy.
>>20330502Somehow, Misaka's labcoat seems to be simultaneously under and over her overalls. What.
>>20330676can we not have namefags like train conductor or teams for specific actions?All that will do is bring back the shit posting.
>>20330721He was posting that image because it fit what we were discussing.The whole team joke is just that
>>20330720I was going to say that's just a white shirt.. but you're right unless that lab coat has the largest neck opening ever
>>20330721The 'teams' are a jest, comrade. Laugh at the inevitability of our decent into screaming fits, because it beats any other response.
>>20330743>>20330720For the sake of my sanity, I'm going to assume that there are two small holes in the back of the labcoat that the suspender-straps run through.
>>20330721I agree that it was just a joke. I much, much prefer the 'we're all trying to out REASONABLE' each other thing we've got going right now.
>>20330676Mami avoided using her golden weapons and retired from active duty quite possibly because of them.She only ever told kyuubey about the incident not the cause it seems
>>20330743Including a complete lack of collar, if that's the case.Either that, or Misaka somehow made a non-euclidean labcoat?
>>20330773She has 2D SCIENCE skills us 3D mortals could never comprehend.
>>20330773>>Either that, or Misaka somehow made a non-euclidean labcoat?Let's go with that. That drawing is still awesome, btw.
>>20330766That's what makes it difficult to compare to our current situation; it's relevent knowledge that we NEED to find the answer to as soon as we can (because we'd really rather not wait until it's forced upon us), but was a sidestory that told use that in the first place. We can't just, like, ask her about it. Meta and all. >>20330773>Misaka somehow made a non-euclidean labcoatThis honestly seems more likely then an artist flub.
>>20330743>>20330720It's a white shirt, mostly because I was going to do her in her schoolgirl outfit originally but then changed my mind halfway thought. But now that you mention it, that is a hilarious M.C. Escher-ish thing to imagine.
>>20330431 >>20330420 >>20330415You're satisfied with what you've found out from your arms dealer. Sure, you could have used a bit more information about her brother, but it's not like you won't find out yourself when you get there. You let her get back to whatever she's doing, and she pouts slightly at you before glancing back out her side's window, cuddling Big Pete ever so tighter to her. In any case, you have porn to get to. Probably some embarrassing, mind-numbing pornography, at that. So like any sane individual about to dive headfirst into the screaming tides of the Warp, you choose to ward yourself from madness - and it's by having Midori give you that packed dinner Mami made for you, stuffed in the wicker basket your personal goddess of fortune brought with her all the way from her apartment. Your green-haired subordinate is all too willing to fetch your packed dinner - which is packaged neatly into a three-tiered cylindrical container. Her eyes are riveted towards the open book on your lap - and she makes a sound akin to a mouse getting stepped on as you push it gently aside to make room for the first tier of your packed dinner."Um...Matsuda-sempai, I--" She starts, clearly distressed and possibly wanting to broach the subject before you do, and you interrupt her by having her give Misaka her own packed dinner, and making sure that the arms dealer eat her vegetables. This earns you quite a good amount of ire, until you tell Misaka that she won't be getting her promised chocolate if she doesn't do as you say. She acquiesces after that, grumbling. [1/2]
>>20330811Which is somewhat annoying, since now we can't ask at all, even if the constant paranoia anons would have gotten us there without any more clues. I did enjoy the flashbacks, but meta knowledge tends to turn out to be a bad thing more often than not.
>>20330852Oh and speaking of art I just got this one done a few minutes ago, just in time.
>>20330852Midori's shoulders are drooping by the time she goes back to her seat, her own packed dinner on her lap. You ignore this as you pop open the lid of the first container - and the smell of Mami's pancakes, drowned in syrup, is the smell of victory.You stab a fork into the first pancake just as you hold up the book in front of you with your free hand.And you begin reading.This is going to be good. Well, no, it's probably going to be terrible. But hey, at least you have pancakes.Skim through it.Read it carefully.
>>20330881[X] EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL.
>>20330881Read it carefully. Make sure we have our super-reactive face on.
As amusing as trolling Midori is (or will be), we should keep in mind that she's had a pretty shit life up until this point, wherein her life could be ended at the whim of a MG formerly known as Murderface. While she's a big fan of Chiaki and all, we shouldn't push her too hard and give her reasons to resent us and possibly sell us out. We're going to need her help in the future as Warmaster, anyhow. She's a Callidus, and may have a lot to teach us about diplomancy and overhauling the Murderface speech filter that all our suggestions are ran through.
>>20330881>[x]Read it carefully.May as well go all in. Might give us an idea of what Midori thinks she sees in us and what her kinks are.
>>20330881Read it carefully.And don't forget to make notes.
>>20330872Midori needs to sweat a little, it looks a little bit to much as if she can't wait for chiaki to read it.other than that, you are great!
>>20330881>[x]Skim itNot sure if good pain.
>>20330881In excruciating detail.
>>20330881Slow.And.Deliberate.Let her feel every page turned.
>>20330881Read it in detail and prepare a critique about it, nothing cruel but an honest look at the good and bad of it
>>20330852We forgot to thank her, I think.
>>20330905I'm sure we won't be too cruel about it. Just tease her a bit in our own deadpan way.
>>20330881Read it carefully, asking Midori for her thoughts along the way.
>>20330881Read it carefully.rustle them pages.Have Misaka ask what we're reading
>>20330881[x] Skim through it. But pretend you're paying close attention with occasional "Hmmm" and "Interesting..."
[X]Read it carefully.>At least you have pancakesDammit Leeroy
>>20330881>[x]Read it carefully.It could provide some insights into Midori's psyche. Perhaps she's just an ambitious fangirl. Or perhaps she used it as a way to escape her life of supporting her family from paycheck to paycheck by plumbing the depths of Magical Girl-assisted depravity (depravity from Japan, I might add).
>>20330881[x]Read. It. Carefully. Make her squirm a bit. It's not like you're being unjust, she's the one who drew you licking snatch in the first place, so she can deal with a little teasing.
>>20330881Read it carefully.not just the text, look at the art as well.lets find out why this thing is so popular.
>>20330940We probably shouldn't get Misaka involved if we can avoid it. She seems younger and more innocent. Last thing we need is having to explain the birds and the bees to our gun dealer.
>>20330898Oh yes, exactly this.You should take note if a single line is out of place.
>>20330955Or it'll turn out to be a snuff story and we'll be given some reason for concern.
>>20330978I think it will have the Pleiades saints dying if anyone
>>20330991I wonder when we'll take them on?
>>20330964We don't let her read it.We just tease Midori by almost telling Misaka what it is.
>>20330905Her personal fangirl object saved her life, helped her parent's, got her a better job, gave her a mindbending orgasm, accepted her as her secretary/assistant/pack mule, took her on a vacation, and is now willingly reading porn about the two of them. I'm not sure how much more we could do to make her MORE loyal to us at this point. I think a little trolling she can handle. As long as we avoid her thinking we're letting her fall into waifu territory, I'm cool with it.
>>20330881[x] Read it carefully.Do we have a highlighter or red pen handy?
>>20330933Of course. But remember that Chiaki (or Murderface) is pretty much Midori's role model and/or idol and/or hero figure. Anything we say to her, whether it be praising or pernicious in nature, will likely have a profound effect on her.
So who said what about rules enforcement?Whatever the case, glad I wasn't the one that tempted fate there.
Wow did we get thread purged?
>>20331091Eh. It's nice to be wrong every once in a while.
>>20331064>Mixed SignalsWell, true. I'm really wary of her thinking we're interested. I don't think a overly obsessed fangirl is someone we want to further cultivate a personal relationship with.
Did the avatarguy just get banned?I love you janitors.
That was fast. I like this new overlord.
>>20331109As it turns out I'm still here.Neat.
>>20331101No. The guy who complied about him did. Looks like the mods don't mind.
>>20331109>>20331113A great victory for a waste of mods time.
>>20331097>>20331091>>20331092Woah. It's like we actually have a janitor or a mod or something. If so, we could have done far far worse. Not that we have one. Because then /tg/ would bitch, and since we're not bitching, we must not have one. Makes sense, right?Sage for metaofftopicness
>Shitstorm purged>That's itI don't know what happened, but I liked it.
>>20331119Haven't you heard the crying already? It had happened already
>>20331117How do we even know anyone got banned for it? For all we know it was just a mass post deletion.
Well, here's to hoping that the doujin is relatively harmless and not snuff or something equally fucked up. That would put a strain on this partnership. It'd also make working at the officio more awkward given how many magical girls apparently read this.What the hell do these people see in Matsuda?
>>20331113Did he ban you or just purge the thread of your evil?>>20331117I was the third guy that complained.
>>20331113Still, back in the game, people! Lets chat ingame stuff. First, may I point out how much better I think Tiny Pete is with a broken horn? Why does this keep getting erased!
>>20331135It was in the straight and boring lesbian section, so there's still hope.
>>20331135Well we should also bear in mind she most likely wrote this before she met us. I mean she's not had a chance since then to write and publish anything.
>>20331135A hardcore stoic that doesn't take crap from anybody.Probably melts away into generic>MY HIPS ARE MOVING ON THEIR OWNhentai girl.
>>20331135They like Matsuda for the same reason any teenage girl likes someone with a lot of problems: The dark, potentially damaged brooding type has a ton of fangirl appeal.
>>20331133Oh, I hadn't noticed. Obviously. It been happening long? Still, this does seem too bad. Doesn't look like anyone got banned, and no one was doing anything too wrong, so at least it doesn't look like hitler mod is back.
>>20331180But then how with the avatar guy remember he was wrong?
Deculture is claiming posting errors.>Oh no! I'm getting 502 errors again!
>>20331158have murderface look up at Midori with an odd look everytime something weird comes up in the bookk
>>20331136Rather clearly, I'm not banned.Thanks, modguy!>>20331161So we're like Edward, but a magical girl?
>>20331168Yeah the mods have been ok this far but people complained about them on /q/ as they are wont to do.I never really thought we needed one since really we did self moderate pretty well with a couple of exceptions, as long as this mod doesn't go hitler mode I won't really have any issues though
Dark, dangerous anti-heroes are total dreamboats. The worse she is for you, the more you want her....Shit, yet another reason why Iori liked us.
Twitter:>Oh no! I'm getting 502 errors again!Please wait warmly, everyone.
>>20331161Because they can fix her!>>20331158This I would pay to see. "Mayumi, what's that you have there?""A deagle brand deagle""Oh""Don't worry, it has other uses"*cheesy 80s porn music*
What does Midori look like again?
>posts deleting before i can read them>no idea what the fuck>continue on questi really hope it turns out to be relatively tame, with no outright mind controlling of the stoic magical super soldier.
>>20331212Long green hair + black tracksuit.The fanarts have been a pretty good image so far.
>>20331187By having to put up with you.He was harmless in it because he simply used them as reaction images as opposed to the people who actually got that rule put in place who were spamming it in every single thread on a board
>>20331212Roughly like this.
>>20331212like >>20330502 -ish
>>20330502>>20331230So she's pretty much Mion from Higurashi.
>>20331194>So we're like Edward, but a magical girl?Please don't make us contemplate suicide even harder.
So.. Did we intentionaly make Midori look like Shion from Higurashi (yellow ribbon and all) or was it coincidence?
>>20331217All have to say to that is>Abandon all hope ye who enters
>>20331241Nah she's Shion. >>20331249 Mion has a pony tail and no ribbon.
>>20331226Another thing that you may or may not know is that the /a/'s attempt at a PMMM quest was plagued by a spammer.So we could have paranoid mod.
>>20330904 >>20330898 >>20330906You decide to read the entire thing - frame by frame, speech balloon by speech balloon, page by page - with the focus you generally reserve for assignment dossiers, gun catalogs, and any written message that's directly from a certain Mami Tomoe. You're reading it hard enough that Midori is sweating bullets and trying visibly to decide whether to rip the book from your hands or to simply throw herself out of the plane, is what you're trying to get at, here. Every turn of the page preceded by stuffing a forkful of pancake into your mouth. It's...well. It's porn, that needs to be reiterated first. But you're surprised at the fact that not only does your subordinate draw well enough to be of professional quality, but there's an actual story buried deep in the layers of lesbian pornography inundating the pages. Sure, the dialogue is a bit rough, and it gets into the tawdry porn talk consisting of repetitive moans and someone's hips moving on their own - but it doesn't get outlandish. Certainly nothing about knocking on the door of one's baby factory, or getting pregnant through the mouth. Had you seen those, you would have slapped Midori just for the principle of it.The beginning of Miracle Midori's tale begins typically enough - a cheerful junior high school student of a middle-class family, visited one day by a magical creature telling her that she's the chosen one, and that she has to fight evil by becoming a Magical Girl. She does so, and on her very first battle, nearly gets the job done on her by a grotesquely tentacle monster that, honestly, could have been more detailed.
>>20331262Well, if we were to use that plot twist back in Higurashi....
>>20331262Except that she has red eyes, so she might as well be a completely different person, given how anime works.
>>20331269Which one? The old switcheroo or the tattoo day fiasco that wasn't in the anime?
>>20331263Yes I was aware of that.However this was just people rules lawyering and being asspained enough to try to get someone banned over a rule that really doesn't apply to tg since we have a distinct lack of people posting with avatar circle jerks which caused the rule to be made.This is the same sort of thinking that makes people try to get quests removed from the site entirely because it is shitting up their boards
>>20331267When we reach the part where we show up, make sure to look at the measurements and correct anatomical mistakes
>>20331267She is saved from that ignoble fate by none other than a mysterious girl with short black hair, crimson glasses and a permanent scowl on her face - and she introduces herself as Murder Mayumi right before throwing her Shield at the monster. A shield that's...quite similar to yours, really.Except for the fact that it has rather wicked chainsaw teeth running the entire perimeter of its edge, like some sort of murder frisbee. The teeth chewing air the moment the entire thing is thrown.Well. It's not a direct copy of what you can do, but it's...original enough, you suppose.You finish off the first container of your packed dinner, and you reverently place the lid back on before popping the top off of the second.Make a comment here.Continue reading. Reserve your comments until you're done.
>>20331267Just be on the lookout for any mysterious salarymen in the story. Who talk-like thissss.
>>20331267>Repetitive moans and hips moving on their own>Manages to avoid the dumber and anatomically improbable clichesShe's batting average so far.
>>20331303>[x]Continue reading. Reserve your comments until you're done.Well, at least she made us cooler than Captain America.
>>20331303Minor comment. Something about the razor disc thing.Then continue reading.
>>20331303Continue reading till the very end. Then say a single 'Not bad' to her and never speak of it again.
>>20331304I don't get the reference, so that quote just made me instantly think of Judge Doom from the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
>>20331303Do you think we can get one of those chainsaw blades? What happens when you try to pull a shield out of a shield?
>>20331303>Make a comment here.A running commentary should be fun. When did Midori start idolizing us and make this? And why?Maybe we can get some insight both on Midori and what Murderface did in the past.
>>20331303"It doesn't have teeth."Continue reading. Those are enough words for someone like us.
So how many Metalocalypse references have been fit in so far? Murderface is the obvious one, and then we had the "bread and butter" one several threads back. Any others I missed?
>>20331303>Except for the fact that it has rather wicked chainsaw teeth running the entire perimeter of its edge, like some sort of murder frisbee. The teeth chewing air the moment the entire thing is thrown.We should ask Misaka if she can do this for us.
>>20331303[x] Continue reading.The pressure game continues...
>>20331303[X]Make a comment here."Hey Misaka, think you could add chainsaw teeth to my shield?"
>>20331336Oh god.That induced some horrible mental images, right there.
>>20331303Now i want us to have a murder-frisbee...Anyway. Ponderously turn our head to face Midori, try for the best impression of someone sloooooowly rotating one of the stone easter island heads.Say "Firstly, my hips have not, and never will, move on their own. Secondly, would you prefer to explain this, or just hurl yourself from the aircraft to escape?"
>>20331333Inb4 it turns out we actually did save her, called ourself murder mayumi and kicked off her whole obsession with us inadvertently
>>20331303[x]No commentary needed. Poker face it all the way.
[x]Make a comment here.>>20331344>>20331354This comment.
>>20331332>>20331336>>20331344As much as I want to comment on the shield, as soon as we talk to Midori she's never going to shut up again, so we're probably going to have to keep reading if we ever want to get through it.
>>20331303we need one of them chainsaw frisbee things, because uh... we will be learning other weapon skills and stuff...
>>20331364I guess we could just ignore her and continue reading as she babbles.
>>20331303Make a comment here.the torture must start now. small comment, then continue
>>20331303"murder Mayumi looks familiar"and then read again.
>>20331303I wonder if our dinner is just all pancakes?I mean I am sure Chiaki would love that but Mami would probably have made a proper meal for her
>>20331384Cough silently, like a proffesional critic...and continue reading
>>20331354thisthis this oh god yes
[X]Make no comments
Comment:"I wonder if Misaka can add the teeth, or if I can figure out a way to get them. That looks useful."
Continue reading.Scowl harder.
>>20331359This would be an amusing application of our selective amnesia.
>>20331463I don't think our amnesia is selective so much as random.We get various things of our brain dying and being remade so we lose memories of certain things with the exception of pancakes because she is heavenly and Sayaka because she is such a bitch and therefore goes under emotional / soul memory
>>20331463If that's true, what's the bet we left her instructions on what to do? Probably involving illusions and forcing us to make choices we don't want and/or killing us at the right time.
>>20331488Maybe 50/50?Either we saved her and walked off and she had this whole fantasy or we did have her following us because we were aware of our own memory loss
>>20331354This. And then back to reading. Ignore anything Midori says or does.
>>20331488>>20331513We're getting dangerously close to Memento.Now we just need a drawfriend to do the "Don't believe his lies" scene with Matsuda writing that on a Polaroid of Kyuubei.
>>20331303You refrain from commenting at this point in time, choosing to instead let Midori simmer, soak and stew in her own despair as you continue to blithely read her doujin, scarfing down Mami's pancakes all the while. You make a mental note to thank Mami as soon as you get off the plane - her cooking these confectionary delights seem to be all the bolster you need to get through something as disturbing as reading drawn pornography of you.Well, you're exagerrating. It's not really that disturbing. Just...really weird.Your resumption of the consumption of pornography and pancakes lands you in the first sex scene of the book - it's of Miracle Midori and Murder Mayumi, after the battle. Apparently, Mayumi had overexerted herself during her slaughter of the tentacle monster, and Midori had taken her back to her house to try and help her recuperate. It's a typical setup, once more drawing from established conventions, and frankly a bit impossible - you don't know anyone who would be in the mood after reducing something like a many-limbed monstrosity into so much hamburger. But it seems that they're really into it, with Mayumi taking the lead, and Midori helpless against her new friend's attentions....You're flattered, but your proportions are nowhere near Mayumi's. You're pretty sure you don't know how to do that thing with your tongue, either.[1/2]
A chainsaw frisbee would be kind of dangerous to us, though.
>>20331513I don't know, we almost killed her in the silent room, and everyone including her expected us to do so. Would Murderface really leave such a risky legacy?>>20331522They were banned for shitposting, not avatarfagging. Please keep furthur posts on topic.
>>20331522Probably the fact that it was a fairly blatant rules evasion is the problem. Posting about technically not breaking the rules in an environment where those who can enforce the rules can see is about as stupid as us walking up to some dame on the street unarmed and expecting her to not be a Saint. Not that we have nearly enough time in a thread to fully disarm...
>>20331564I think he just got re-banned for ban evading.I surprised at how tame the porn is so far here.
>>20331552Let me guess, this about 'those' types of magical girls who need sex in order to recharge.
>>20331604It's a series with many volumes, according to QB. The hardcore stuff probably appears later on.
>>20331625Holy crap, how long has Midori known about us?
>>20331631we're pretty damn famous, actually.
>>20331631As I understand it, Murderface is hella famous. I would not be surprised if people outside the magical girl scene know who she is.
>>20331564Let's see, nope and I am not logic
>>20331646Fabiola apparently recognized us as Murderface when we were in our standard uniform. Though I'm not sure she qualifies as a normal person.
>>20331631Well, he said OTHER volumes. Not necessarily how many.We've been around two years or so, right? That's... Probably three Comikets, assuming that we weren't really super famous for the first six months or so.
>>20331631Well, that's one question we could ask after reading."Why me? Couldn't it be easer to look for inspiration that's closer to home? One of those saint characters?"
>>20331646>>20331625This was mentioned earlier by QB that many of the girls working in the company read this hentai manga.Everybody's known for ages. Everybody thinks Murderface boinks Midori.
>>20331631Two years since "Chiaki" got rescued from Charlotte's barrier. So, given some time to build up a reputation, a year or a year and a half?
>>20331662Actually... The manga might be one of the reasons WHY we're so famous, you know.
>>20331662She wrote this long before she became our subordinate.
>>20331683Might be the reason the girls at the officio voted for Matsuda as Warmaster which is disturbing.
>>20331552Re-using art assets is fun.
>>20331683>"OH god, can she really do that with her tongue?"Priceless.
>>20331696that...is surprisingly probable...
>>20331683...I think Iori has read it now that I think of it.It makes a bit of sense given all that time she spent with Mami.
>>20331552The scene ends in a rather comical fashion, with Midori sobbing about being ruined for marriage, clutching the covers to her chest, while Mayumi lights up a cigarette and smokes, all cool and brooding in that 'sated predator' kind of way. You immediately hate this Mayumi person, for the simple fact that even you know that kind of behavior after coitus - not that you've done it before, mind - is unacceptable. It's then that your doujin self says something that nearly makes you spit out the bit of pancake you've been chewing:[Murder Mayumi]: I'm not going to apologize. I needed your mana, and this is the only way I can get it. Prey like you should stop crying and accept your fate. You should be honored I chose you.[Miracle Midori]: B-but...you...[Murder Mayumi]: If it makes you feel better, consider it as payment for my rescuing you. Reimbursement for saving your life. Surely you're familiar with that concept....What a bitch. Seriously.You're not like that, are you? Of course not. You're nothing like that.Make a comment here.Continue reading.
>>20331696"If she can move her fingers like that, she can be MY sempai any day of the week!"
>>20331552not a suggestion but a thought.what if we absentmindedly tried doing the tongue thing while intently reading and Midori looked over?
>>20331683>>20331721And soon after meeting with her Murderface popped Midori's soul-gem proving that she could, in fact, do nifty things with her tongue. Maybe she thought Murderface had Already read it?
>>20331737Continue readingIdly attempt to do the tongue thing
>>20331737That's disturbing.More so if you consider that this shit gets Midori off. Girl's got issues, more than likely because of how everyone at the Saints ignored her so she's starved for attention, even negative attention.Some sort of comment would probably be appropriate.
>>20331737Talk about some deep seated issues there Green...[x]Keep reading.But we're going to have to reevaluate how we deal with her.
>>20331737Comment: This Mayumi character is a horrible person. is she always like this in the later volumes?
>>20331737[x]No comment. Not only are we making her squirm with how we're not showing our hand yet, but we're making her squirm with the possibility that we may possibly not think that behavior is out of character for us.She's going to be going crazy the longer we play it cool.
>>20331766I don't think it really got her off but she used it as escapism from how shitty her life was.
>>20331737[x] Continue reading.I'm not sure whether one should feel angry or sad about this. Is that really how people see Murderface - as a killing machine who does what she pleases?
>>20331737>The scene ends in a rather comical fashion, with Midori sobbing about being ruined for marriage, clutching the covers to her chest, while Mayumi lights up a cigarette and smokes, all cool and brooding in that 'sated predator' kind of way.So this is what the rest of the magic girl profession thinks we're like.
>>20331788To be fair, according to everything we have heard about ourself prior to the start of the story that is exactly what we were
>>20331737... Suddenly Midori getting all blushy and "Murderface likes me, kyaa" after we had QB take over her contract instead of killing her makes a bit more sense.
>>20331766Hey, it's not ALWAYS a sign of a distressed mind if someone has a kink for getting ravished by a roguish stranger. The romance/housewife schlicking novel world is so full of that shit you don't even KNOW, man.
>>20331737Make a comment here. >>20331775Hand out the chocolate!
>>20331737On the one hand, i feel like we've tormented Midori enough for now.On the other, i have a dark and baleful curiosity to see how deep this rabbit-hole goes...
Keep reading. Honestly, at this point I don't even care about making her squirm anymore. I'm more curious about the popular perception of Murderface.
I like this thread. It's all the backstory of a flashback, but we still get to be scowly Murderface.
>>20331805True, but considering Midori's circumstances, and that she was basically begging us to lick her soul gem a second time, I'd say Midori's got a few issues....I just realized that soul gem licking is clearly going to make an appearance in the next issue of Miracle Midori.
>>20331766Dude. Have you ever read any bodice rippers? I mean, getting borderline raped is pretty much the basis for most of that shit.
>>20331799But that's borderline rape!It's one thing to tell QB to suck a dick and whole another to abuse fair maidens like that.
>>20331803She also had enough alcohol in her soul / system to kill a herd of elephants thanks to us using her soul gem as a whiskey stone for the preceeding weeks
>>20331824THERE WILL BE NO NEXT ISSUE.
>>20331818Which is always a lot of fun
>>20331840you gona boycott it or something?
Oh man, i hope there is some kind of Q&A corner in which Midori answers questions.We should totally send her a letter in that case.
I'm still waiting for QB to find out more about Miracle Midori and then decide to use it as propaganda. Cue Matsuda forced into making appearance with Midori at the local porn shops.
>>20331860We are kinda the direct superior of the person responsible for it.
>>20331737[x]Continue reading.>You're not like that, are you? Of course not. You're nothing like that.But apparently, we were.
>>20331840I was under the impression that there were multiple issues.
>>20331840Maybe we can say that she can continue the series, but with a new partner. Maybe like an ex-idol civillian with long brown hair.>Matchmakin'
>>20331840I'd like to point out that if we let her continue drawing, she'll have an outlet for her crazy perverse lust towards Chiaki.What do you think will happen if we let the pressure build up in her?
>>20331737Make a comment."So you REALLY enjoy the abuse, huh?"
>>20331896I thought we were trying to keep Iori out of the magical girl scene and instead hook her up with Garcia.
>>20331866we should send in fanmail to her contact info on the back cover. see how awkward she gets in our presence after she reads it.
>>20331912That's why I voted for the separation.
>>20331906Possible crazyness/yandere mode?
We shall stay quiet during the entire reading. When we finish, we will set down the doujin. Face Midori. Retrieve her soul gem. Make sure we're looking her in the eyes. And give it one lick of moderate length. It is the only way.
[x] Pokerface. POKERFACE.C-c-c-can't read my POKERFACE.
>>20331916And we should do it under an obvious as fuck name like Mahdahvisage.Then act like we don't know what she is talking about.
>>20331934Well, more crazy.And I figure Midori may graduate to more perverse acts if she isn't allowed to draw.
>>20331952>Also got a crazy captcha with giant upside-down letters. >Typed what they vaguely looked like and it WORKED.
>>20331943AYE!! im up for this.
>>20331963As an artist I can say with some degree of knowledge that being disallowed to draw porn would make me eventually explode and attack random passers-by.
>>20331875We can't use that as an excuse to start dictating what she does during her personal time though.Same as we said if we took war master we wouldn't use it for pancakes or drinking session etc commands
>>20331987but we do own her pretty much. she is our thrall by the nature of the redone contract. tho i do agree with you.
>>20331866Dear Green Green,What the actual fuck?Love,Chiaki
>>20331943Once she recovered, she'd probably be even more confused/flustered. This could be fun. Activate MAXIMUM DEADPAN though. Can't forget that.
to think that most the girls in the office are reading this...
>>20331943>>20332025Truly, this is the best option.
NO LICKING. The last thing we need is to ENCOURAGE her to become our love slave, it will only lead to bad things. And I mean bad in the "unfortunate" way. But, keeping our commentary to ourself to the end will be cool.
>>20331875>>20331987Let's leave off those descisions until we actually talk to her and get the full story, yes? Everyone needs some sort of income, after all.
>>20331768 >>20331762 >>20331754For the second time, you hold your tongue - simply because you've got better things to do with it at the moment, specifically trying to emulate that thing Mayumi did with hers while giving Midori her forced jollies. How does that even work, anyway? Licking around, then in? Around, and in? There's some sorcery involved, you decide as you keep trying to emulate such tongue-twisting technique - no one should be able to do that with their own tongue, period.You hear a choking sound coming from Midori's direction, which you plainly ignore as you unsuccessfully try and replicate the act of knotting a berry stem with your tongue. Like that's even possible.Toe-curling tongue gymnastics aside, you continue reading the rest of the doujin. You see that like typical releases, each volume features enough pages to fully explain the setting, introduce the characters, and exactly one sex scene - i.e. the reason it's being bought in the first place. Not bad, considering that the quality is the sort you'd expect from any commercial manga, except that it's got porn in it.The volume ends with Miracle Midori waking up to an empty bed, and she wonders if the day's events actually happened. She starts to doubt herself, until she sees an indigo rose placed on the pillow where Murder Mayumi had originally been.[Miracle Midori] It's...she left this for me. A blue rose...her calling card. What does it mean...? Does she care about me at all? What have I gotten myself into?The volume ends there, and the rest of the pages are advertisements about other running doujinshi, the publishing house credits, and other stuff like that. Nothing about a second volume preview.[1/2]
>>20332079You finally put the book - and your fork - down, and you turn what you've just read over in your head as you look down on your second empty container. After a moment, you glance towards Midori, who is now looking at you, clearly near tears.What do you say? How do you react?
I don't think we have her soulgem anymore? Didn't she get it back after Kyubey attuned it to Chiaki's?
>>20332059Pretty sure she ran these at just over cost to keep QB from suing her into a small, gently smouldering crater, and then setting Kyoko loose on whatever's left.This looks like pretty much uncut Green green's inner pervy desires, which has just endless unfortunate implications for our working together, and why we're so famous and popular despite ourself.
>>20332083A single raised eyebrow.
>>20332008Yes we do own her but we don't want to set a bad precedent.And if letting her go with this means she trusts us more then I think it is worth while.
Well we should try to do this as delicately as possible. Mentally breaking our subordinate is poor form.I think just a few questions would be appropriate such as: Why? Needed the extra income or just for fun? And why Matsuda specifically?
>>20332083Plot was semi-coherent, writing was better than most, Murder was rather unlikable though and the FUCKING CAT doesn't seem menacing enough. 7.5/10, would buy the sequal.
>>20332099this, and ask her "Am i like that?"
>>20332083I enjoyed it. Don't beat yourself up so much.
>>20332079okay, next time we go to the office, i vote we have a bouquet of blue roses in our hands, just to see the reaction of all the readers.
>>20332099I can't think of anything to say that wouldn't end badly, so i'm just going to support this.
>>20332083"So, when's Volume 2 coming out?"
>>20332083"Well, that was interesting."Hand out the chocolate with the pokerface as she reacts
>>20332083[X] >>20331943You know it to be true.
>>20332083Let Midori speak. She's had more than enough time to pull together what she's going to say, probably. After hearing her side of it, we can then figure out how to address the issue without encouraging any kind of crush or being hard on her.
>>20332125ThisAnd >>20332133But we take the roses to Mami.
>>20332153The reasonable, stoic way.Let's go with that.
>>20332153This. Let her speak first.
>>20332133And give it to some office girl at random, then never call them.
>>20332125I like this
>>20332131This, maybe.>Captcha has "Conjugial" in it, how relevant.
>>20332153Yeah, that sounds better then my idea. Lets go with this.
>>20332083i don't think we should be to hard on Midori sure she made porn with us in mind but at least it wasn't as bad as it could have been, aside from Murder Mayumi being a cunt but we were sort of like that for the better part of 1.5 - 2 years.i think its best to keep it neutral and not trample it underfoot but also giving no great support either.maybe just tell her the story/art aren't half bad but Mayumi is a bitch?
>>20332083>[X] Lick soul gemShe did a good job. She should be rewarded.
>>20332133> a river of blood from all those noses bleeding
"Not bad. This Mayumi is such an... engaging character."As delicately as possible. Fun is all well and good, but we don't want to break her. Yet.
>>20332190>give the roses to the cat
>>20332125>>20332133Holy shit, those!
>>20332190I do not think this is a suitable moment for soulgem licking. We would have to explain what we just did to Misaka. Maybe later.
>>20332153This with a side of that: >>20332125
>>20332083dead pan gem licking
>>20332083"It was decent."
>>20332125This, followed by"But... do you really think I'm that cruel?"Then when she starts stuttering out an apology, smile and say "And I thought you'd need the full Murderface experience first".
>>20332193>>20332185why the fuck do you people think she going to break with a few comments? If she can handle writing and publishing porn she can expect some tease from the person from her inspiration.
>>20332131This is a query I support.
>>20332189>Licking the soulgem in front of Misaka
Though honestly, the moment we found out about magical midori, i expected her to act a bit like mio here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z30Y572EmCk sans the taking down people.
just out of curiosity, when was this book published. Before or after we actually knew Midori?
I think this is a good place to pause, if only because I need to sleep.The next thread will be tomorrow at an earlier time!Thank you for your participation and feedback is always great!
>>20332153Changeing my vote to this + eyebrow.
>>20332189>>20331943>>20332148Guys, i thought the plan was to *resist* pinky, slaneesh, and all the other thirsting gods, not run headfirst into their arms.
Come ON, son, we don't even have her soul gem anymore. Also that'd be sending terrible mixed messages to someone who's already a bit confused and damaged in the first place.
>>20332083"You better get ready for a drinking session tonight, because I'll need it."
>>20332238>oh my this cliff sure is high!see you next time
>>20332263Vodka Vacation Hunting Party. With a side of reading porn out loud.
>>20332238My cliffs have been hung!Thanks for trolling us gently there, mate.
>>20332234Long before I would say.Given Midori was a comatose cripple for a few weeks I doubt she could have drawn, produced and had a big hit manga.
>>20332238Hurray for Matsuda's self-reflection through porn.
>>20332153Placing my vote for this.And if she asks if we want to make her stop this just say "What you do in your own time is not my business"
To the person who archived:You forgot "Noir" in "Magical Girl Noir Quest".
>>20332229Misaka has to learn about these kinds of things some time. Hell, she is a crazy weapons dealer/killer. And who better to show her the way than Chiaki? Of course, things will be a bit more hands on without soul gems...
>>20332331I will cut you, hombre.
>>20332331This plan is sound. That or Misaka's Nazi rival jumps her.
>Somebody suggested blue rosesFUCK NODo any of you realize what blue roses mean. They mean you can't have me or there is no way we'll be together.
>>20332357>Nazi rivalIs he going to do that? Cause that'd be fun>>20332374That's why I said give them to the cat.
>>20332374>flowers and their meaninghow do they work!?seriously!
>>20332374Seems fitting, then. It's not like we'd be giving them to any potential waifus. Just all the other Officio girls.
>>20332328Man, it looks like I got back too late to arch... He also put a 's' on the end of 'doujin'
>>20332374This sounds fine then? It's not like we're getting together with the entire office. Hell, I'm really not sure if Mami is even an option, at this point. The list shrinks...
>>20332456To be fair there are apparently several volumes of Miracle Midori, though only 1 was read now.
>>20332486I was more pointing out that 'doujins' isn't even a word, is it? I've always been under the impression that Japanese words don't USE an 'S' at the end to entail multiple objects; a ninja and many ninja is the same thing?That said, yeah, it sounds like there must be multiple volumnes out already. We can stop MORE from being made, maybe, but who knows how many are already produced? Being published by official big name publishers with ads for other doujin in the back make it sound like it's big enough to have a decent size run.
>>20332522which is why we just ask for a cut of the profits
And I don't suppose we can rearchive it?
>>20332534Not that I know of? Licorice doesn't allow edits or rearchs for aesthetic or other minor reasons, from what I understand. If we could, there's a whole block of threads near the middle that need renumbered and such. *laugh*
>>20332522Oh right, the lack of plural s is true.I'm not sure we should force Midori to stop. We shouldn't abuse our power over her or our power as Warmaster-in-training for non-work stuff. Plus, bottling up a creative outlet for Midori's problems will just make said problems worse.
>>20332567I'm more distraught that he used "In-flight" instead of 'mile-high'.
>>20332589We have every right to not want porn with our face on mass distributed. For a profit too.
>>20332567You could try emailing him and asking him to fix it, so long as you remember that he is a lazy fucker.>>20332522Eh, it's a romanization, adding an "s" to pluralize it works. Japanese may not pluralize so, but English does, and we're all using English, which is a bastard of a language, after all. So, yeah.
>>20332604True, but let's just not do any "Quit this shit or I'll use the kill-switch" or "I order you stop as your superior."Telling her to stop otherwise is fine. But we should address her underlying problems that caused this fiasco to begin with.
>>20332613>>20332567...Also, no sobriety status in the description. Still, this doesn't seem bothersome to annoy people about.
Is anyone else kind of astounded that the events of Midori's "speculative fiction" work has thus far more or less figuratively paralleled what she's been through when she first met Chiaki?
>>20332689Except instead of saving her, we shot her employer and blew off her legs.Small differences.
>>20332689Rather hilarious that we inadvertently raped her by licking her soul gem. Girl has to have so many issues by now.
>>20332708We didn't rape her. She even asked for more. I think that incident doesn't really factor in to her ' problems'.
>>20332739Alright fine, that would be an instance of "surprise sex you didn't know you wanted.".Still, we chose to recruit, "save" her, rather than kill her and then proceeded to molest her. Girl had problems before but us sort of following the script to her doujin isn't going to help things.
>>20332703True, but we also gave her a chance to break out of her previous work of being a rape facilitator, ensured that her parents are looked -after and under the QB's aegis of association, and pretty much gave her a second chance at life when we could have killed her. She was expecting that to happen and even made peace with the fact that Murderface would be very likely to make a tapestry of her entrails. In a sense, "Mayumi" may have saved Midori from an incubator who was pulling her in a downward spiral. Although not in a gentle manner, I'll grant you.
>>20332816Oh god, you're right. Just when i think this can't get any worse, it does.First, She wrote porn of us. Second, we're playing into it. Third, everyone we know probably read it. Fourth, we walk around in the mahou shoujo suit due to laziness, so EVERYONE who ever read it can recognize us.I think our first action next thread should be>[x]Collapse into a small black hole under sheer weight of embarrassment.
>>20332875We could try playing off our outfit as cosplay. Though I'm not sure cosplaying as a hentai character in public is much of an improvement.
>>20332689I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Murderface had inadvertently saved Midori's life at some point in Chiaki's forgotten past.
>>20331194>So we're like Edward, but a magical girl?Yes, exactly assuming you mean Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist protagonist
>>20333238Or Edward Scissorhands, an emotionally damaged fellow who's outward appearance belayed the fact that deep inside, there was something worth caring about.
>>20333238Why stop there, when we can become Inspector Gadget?
>>20333985That would require a heck of a lot of surgery. Or a mental transference to a robutt body. It would also require we become far too bumbling about our actual job.
>>20334382We could always be Robocop or something. Misaka offered to replace our missing arm with a fancy cyborg arm.
