You are a Magical Girl. There are times - a lot of times - when you wish that you weren't one.This is not one of those times. Funnily enough, you can actually say that to your own reflection in the mirror right this moment and not laugh at the blatant, bare-faced lie you've just told yourself. You're still the same booze-swilling, painkiller-addicted ne'er-do-well with a fancy costume and an itchy trigger finger - but you feel that somehow things are turning around. Somewhat. You probably shouldn't say that, however. You might jinx yourself.Worse, the black-eyed monstrosity hiding in your Shield may be listening.
>>20423553As far as you can tell, it's morning in Siberia. You've arrived earlier by plane, then by chinook. Somewhere along the way you've committed your very first act of larceny in this particular country - or at least, as far as you can remember - and somehow, you felt really good when you did that. Did you commit such heinous crimes for a hobby back then, or was it just the thrill of the moment, doing something so incredibly risky and yet basically being assured that you'd get away scot free while doing so?One or the either, no one is going to suspect a whisky-reeking cunt in a Magical Girl costume like you of stealing an entire wing's worth of MiG-21's. Where would you have hidden them, under your skirt?In any case. You're inside the rather heavily-guarded - you swore you could see some bipedal shapes as tall as an entire building, half-hidden by the snow, stomping around the perimeter - and heavily-fortified base that Kyuubey calls the Research and Development facility of the Officio Assassinorum. You're at the floor where apparently, your former partner and fellow Magical Girl Kharn pals around with the facility's own Director, which is coincidentally your arms dealer's ne'er-do-well of an older brother. You just gave him porn after calling him a basement dweller, which is technically and historically correct - and from the way he stared at you, he doesn't really have that nice of a first impression of the Officio's upcoming Warmaster. He'd said so himself, anyway.Heh. Warmaster.The rank is...well, it sounds nice. It rolls off the tongue very naturally, too.And you know you'll never be able to deserve it no matter what you do.
>>20423568Kharn is away at the moment, gone to stuff some dangerous cargo into the base's vault or something or other. The director - his name's, well, you've already forgotten it - is somewhere around here, with the porn you gave him. Misaka is sleeping in her quarters. You're left alone for the moment along with Midori.You're free to look around. You have a bit of time to kill until the Glorious Bear Hunting Party is assembled for some Glorious Bear Hunting. Alcohol may be heavily involved.Where do you go?The kitchen. Get some booze, see if Midori can cook some takoyaki for Kharn.Look for Souji. Try to get started off the right foot, or at least make it clear that you're not as bad as him.Investigate Souji's and Kharn's room.Go to sleep. You need the rest, and it's not like you're planning to sleep tonight anyway.
>>20423596You know,Lets be paranoid!Lets look around.For bugs!The other option is that we could get some booze and have a talk with Midori.Does she know the horrible, horrible truth about magical girls?
>>20423596[x]The kitchen. Get some booze, see if Midori can cook some takoyaki for Kharn.>>20423621Does Murderface?
>[x]The kitchen. Get some booze, see if Midori can cook some takoyaki for Kharn.I have a feeling that Souji is a particularly resentful neckbeard, and may hold a grudge no matter how much we apologize.
>>20423634Yes she does.
>>20423596[X]Look for Souji. Try to get started off the right foot, or at least make it clear that you're not as bad as him.We're getting groomed to be Warmaster, we need to get our people skills up to snuff, this is a good opportunity for that. We may be a whisky drinking, chain smoking, pill popping, anti-social, depressed, fuck up. But we do our job and if our job consists of diplomacy we'll work at it, we'll never be Mami-tier but we can get better.Also we'll have plenty of time to drink when we're Bear Hunting.
>>20423596See if Midori can cook takoyaki for Kharn. Either she's awful at cooking and we find out by proxy, or she's decent, so we can make use of this. Only when Mami isn't around of course.After that, check out the base. Not breaking into Kharn's room, but just a wander to get the lay of the land/easily defensible points in case of Operators Operating Operationally again.
>>20423621INVESTIGATORS GONNA INVESTIGATE.[X]Investigate Souji's and Kharn's room.
Oh, and >>20423672 here.I vote for no drinking, in case I need to make it explicit. Drinking and reminiscing with Kharn = good. Drinking before hand and passing out during plot exposi- I mean, memory hole plugging = bad.
>>20423596[X]Investigate Souji's and Kharn's room.
Look for Souji.It's not like I'm fishing for a fight or anything.
[x] Make MIDORI investigate Kharn and Souji's room. If she gets caught, then just dissavow knowledge of her activities. We've got a disposable mook now, let's make use of her.
>>20423743I don't think she is that disposable.
It vexes me somewhat that an entire MiG-21 is easier to draw than a single human foot.Oh well. I'll fix it in inking.
See if Midori can cook takoyaki for Kharn while we go look for Souji.
>>20423596Kitchen. Booze. Make Midori earn her keep for a change. >Captcha: analsNot THAT method of earning her keep.
[x]The kitchen. Get some booze, see if Midori can cook some takoyaki for Kharn.We should try discussing with Midori the Iori incident while we still have some peaceful time left. We should also discuss the full extent of her abilities, illusion and fighting, so we can start incorporating tactics with her.
>>20423797Nice. And nice view for the pilot.
>>20423815This. We've been saying it for ages now, and we've touched on it briefly, but we need to nail down exactly how we can work with Midori's illusions. Hell, we can get her to show us some examples when we're bear hunting.
>>20423596>[x]Investigate Souji's and Kharn's room.Let's raid her panties.
[X] Call a friend. Or even, ugh, Kyubey. Ask them to tell us about Kharn -- why is she called "the Betrayer"? And what is her history with us?
>R&D FacilityI picture that kinda like NERV's science branch.
>>20423860With the temperature, security, big elevators, and suspiciously large machines possibly walking outside, I'm seeing Shadow Moses.
>>20423880I was thinking more Black Mesa, myself.
>>20423848Let's not. It's said she wouldn't KILL us, but it said nothing about beating us to within an inch of our life.Obviously the solution is to make Midori do it.
>>20423887>>20423880Except the EVAs might actually be useful if we're going up against Godoka.
>>20423672 >>20423641 >>20423634It's been a while since you last tried to finish off your liver, and admittedly your throat is rather dry and your hands have been a bit twitchy - but you decide to forgo the drink for now while you and your subordinate case the kitchen of this part of the R&D branch. It's a small one and clearly meant for two (there's a dining table set for a pair at the far end of it) but it's well-stocked enough that you're sure a small group could sufficiently last for a while if a siege situation ever came up. Hell, there's even instant noodles, the kind you hurriedly sucked down just so the alcohol you'd be drowning yourself with later doesn't knock you out as fast.You ask Midori - who's been quietly hanging behind you the entire time, seemingly miffed about something - if she can make takoyaki, and if she could, is it doable with the stuff you've found here?She stares at you for a moment, before she lets out a tiny sigh, and then shrugs."...Figure I could, Sempai. She's got a takoyaki maker stashed behind the blender there, poor thing looks like it hasn't been used for a long time. There's cabbage in the crisper, pancake flour over there near the spice rack, and while I didn't see any octopus in their fridge I think squid can do in a pinch."Good. You tell her to get to making some for Kharn, then. Not a whole lot, just a small batch to be nice. And, you privately think, to test whether or not your subordinate actually has any cooking skills."I'll make them for you, sempai." Midori suddenly says. "But not for her. I don't know her, and I damn well sure ain't cooking for someone I don't know."You raise an eyebrow at this.How do you react?
>>20423568> You're inside the rather heavily-guarded - you swore you could see some bipedal shapes as tall as an entire building, half-hidden by the snow, stomping around the perimeter>some bipedal shapes as tall as an entire building...Are you guys thinking what I am thinking?
>>20423929"Your family doesn't have much food to spare?"
>>20423907Black Mesa's interdimensional research is also viable against Godoka, in a point. or the zero-point energy research.>>20423935Sasquatch-hunting, perhaps?
>>20423929Is that a problem? If you're so deadset against doing it specifically for Kharn, you could always just make enough for everyone, you know.
>>20423929Why don't you make some for me and some for yourself and just happen to make too much? Would these terms be acceptable Midori? I've wanted to try your cooking for a while anyways. This seems like a good opportunity.
>>20423945>>20423945>[x]Search for one of those " bipedal shapes as tall as an entire building">[x] Steal one>[x] Go Full-Godzilla on the next Golden-Weapon-Users ass
>>20423929"Then how about making it for all of us, think of it as celebratory treat for our safe arrival. Besides, it wouldnt hurt to be gracious to a host, especially one like her."
>>20423929"Well. Maybe later, then.You seem a touch put-out, by the way. Did something happen while I was asleep?"
>>20423935Or our very own "Chiaki's lets learn to count!"We've got number 5 all set up, lets see if we can populate the list to 10!
>>20423929"Oh, I'm sorry, I was presuming I had the authority to give you orders. Oh wait. I do. Make the damn food."
>>20423929"I'd appreciate it if you would, but I won't make you."
>>20423929Then is it okay if I share my part with Kharn? She is an old friend... I think.And I kinda wanted to test you cooking.
>>20423975I thought we decided Matsuda was going to try to be mature and not abuse her new found authority for non-work-related stuff.
>>20423929...Make the damn food....Please.
>>20423935>...Are you guys thinking what I am thinking?Either Titans or Evas.In any way, Jousting time!
>>20423929look, if you're not going to cook I'll have too.you don't want that to happen.
>>20423929Well how about you make a decent sized batch for me and Misaka and then we can share them if we want
>>20423989It won't be the same without cripples though...
>>20423989Please let them be Eva's. We have enough 40k stuff going on.
>>20423929problem with strangers?
>>20423999I doubt it would be Eva's or titans given that they are only half the size of a buildingMaybe metal gears or dreadnoughts with the second being the more likely.
>>20423989>>20423969>>20423964Oh no! You got me thinking of that stupid Metal Gear/Evangelion crossover.Were Metal gears are powered up so they can take on angels.And the Asuka bashing.
Oh, and before I forget, here's a sketch of Kharn in that signature pose.>Evas are piloted by young people with severe mental and emotional traumaYeah, Chiaki fits the bill on that
>>20423929[x]"Too many part time jobs as a chef burn you out? Whatever. Let's just make noodles, and you can fill me in on something I meant to ask a while back. Did you sleep with Iori?"
>>20424017...Is that a KyuuBolter?
>>20423929Mechwarrior anyone?no? just me?>okay
>>20424017Well, the most important thing is you mother's soul has to be in the EVA.Not that I don't see QB arranging that.
>>20423999It's loosely based on Madokaverse.We also have 40k, Idolmaster, Railgun stuffs in. Not sure we need more crossover.>>20424012>I doubt it would be Eva's or titans given that they are only half the size of a building>some bipedal shapes as tall as an entire buildingReading comprehension, do you have it?As tall as a building works for Eva and smaller Titans. Way too big for a dreadnought.
>>20424024They would fit the bill for a scout mech like a Jenner or a Commando variant
>>20424024Mechwarrior would be my second place after Metal Gears.
>Nobody has said armored core>nobody wants Karasawa awesomeness.
>>20424024Actually yes make them MechWarriors.
[x]Are you worried I'm going to turn you into a maid?
>>20423999>>20423989Who cares what they are, lets steal one!
>>20424034Better than more of the same.
>>20423650I like what you've done.Would It be worth photoshopping the bullets out/in it so that it was one frame per thread?
>>20424023"Hey, Director""What?! Im busy here.""We just got that shipment of the bizarre grenade launcher/gun hybrid pulled from Murderface. And 3 crates of vodka.""Fascinating, such an archaic design over a highly advanced schematic. Hmm. . .""Oh God, you have that look again.""Hey assistant, I bet you 1 crate of vodka that I can make this adorable.""The name's Bob, and your fucking on. No way you can make something from Murdeface adorable">>a few weeks later"Behold! The Kyuubey-Pattern Bolter!"" . . I fucking hate you"
>>20424071The hell? We have spoilers now?
I made you a thing
>>20424072Welcome to last week!
>>20423929While we want Midori to obey us, but this probably isn't worth fighting over. Besides, it gives us a chance to speak to her about her about several things that we want to know about. Such as filling her in about the Iori situation, asking her how to spot illusions and how to resist/shatter them, and other things.
>>20424040>>20424048Battlemechs, guys, the robots are Battlemechs, rhe pilots are Mechwarriors. Still, great idea. Either that or those walker tank mechs from Lost Planet. Or AC's. >>20423673>>20423797My sides!
>>20424058What do you mean ONE?Let's pick them all.>>20424068>Would It be worth photoshopping the bullets out/in it so that it was one frame per thread?I don't get it.But I don't think one frame per thread would work. Too much near-identical images (it's already strange when there is 2-3 close frames).
>>20424034Actually Eva's and titans are the size of skyscrapers at the very least.Dreadnoughts are about 12ish feet tall given most interpretations and therefore closer to building sizedMetal gears and mechs both also come in the building sized versions of different heights
>>20424072We've had them for a while.>>20424071Have you ever heard of the kitty corner?
>>20424088I forgot about AC'sThey would be cool to have
Bears and Siberia?
>>20424098Skyscrapers are buildings are they not?
>>20424103Which game's cores? Cause if we're using the one from 4/4A I'd rather not clog up the inventory with them.
>>20424109Yes but a specific building type.I doubt there would be any skyscrapers at the secret lab and if there is then I seriously wonder what tricks they are using to keep it hidden
>>20424112Well I always did like 4/A cores but I suppose AC/2/3 cores would work still
>>20424112>Worried about clogging up the inventoryYou're funny
>>20424098EVAs varied wildly in height during the series, we could take any of heights.The "life sized one" they're building in Japan is 52 ft, which is not where near a skyscraper.
>>20424121>what tricksWe have a callidus.They can too.
>>20424075I was going to post art but I'm not sure I can beat this beautiful thing.
>>20424132I know they built a gundam, but they making an Eva now too?
>>20424112The Inventory has, canonically, held a battleship.As in, an actual, full size, naval battleship.You probably don't need to worry about clogging it.
If they are Evas, why is the R&D department making stomp around the perimeter?Putting Evas in perimeter watch is far too cost-prohibitive
>>20424137Callidus in a Battlemech.Nobody sees that alpha coming.
>>20424121What are you talking about, building were only cited as a size comparison.If Deculture had said as big as a T-rex, you'd wonder what a dinosaur would be doing in a secret base?>>20424145>The Inventory has, canonically, held a battleship.I think there was several barttleships even.
>>20424151So THAT'S who's piloting all those fucking Atlas (Atlas's? Atlasi?) in the opening cutscenes to the mechwarrior games
>>20424145I've always wondered since I heard that...HOW THE FUCK DID SHE GET IT IN!?
>>20424145But we would still have to touch a next to put it into our inventory.
>>20424165someone threw it at her. she caught it.
>>20424156 Eldritch Library, I'd only worry about a T-Rex in a secret labroratory if it failed to have linked gatling guns for arms. That's like cloning Sharks and neglecting to install lazers on their heads. Science does not approve.
>>20423967 >>20423960 >>20423961Midori just stares at you, before blinking slowly and then shaking her head. A rather wistful smile on her face as she does so. "Heh...right, right. Of course. Sorry, sempai, for a moment there I forgot who I was talking to. Should've known that I was beaten before the battle already began, and all that." She sighs, before walking past you - and you feel that the air between you has slightly changed, from her nervous cordiality to a slight chilly one. "I'll make you your takoyaki, sempai. Feel free to share them with whoever you want, I don't care." She huffs, slightly. "Not too sure why I felt like I should, either."There's a creak of rusty hinges and pans being slightly rustled around as your personal Callidus starts the process of making takoyaki. Well, they're squid balls, now, but besides that bit in the middle they should be the same.You're not too sure what's up with Midori, but at least she's starting on it. If she works quickly enough, it'd be a nice surprise for Kharn when she gets back from wherever she was at the moment. For some reason, you feel awfully glad about that particular prospect. You may have been an awful person and forgotten all about her, but at least you're making it up to her little by little, right?A series of sharp, quick thudding sounds alerts you in the direction of your subordinate - and you see Midori work disturbingly expertly with a cleaver, shredding a quarter head of cabbage into nothing but coleslaw. She's got a determined look set on her face, for some reason.[1/2]
>>20424211Told you guys to mean. She likes that, remember?
Anyone got any ideas as to what Midori's being all wierd about?
>>20424228Our boobhug with Kharn, I would guess, primarily. I don't think Midori likes her.
>>20424211Maybe people who cook are generally like that? You're not exactly sure. But Mami never looked that way when you saw her cooking for you, however. She'd be humming some sort of tune or melody, bouncing from foot to foot, smiling as she made magic with her hands.Real magic. Not the sort from a soul gem. Actual magic, with the ingredients you can easily find in any grocery store. True magic that warmed bodies just as much as it warmed hearts.Man. You haven't been a day away, and you miss her already.Another sharp, loud thud - loud enough to make you slightly start - and you turn to see Midori open the can of squid with the cleaver. Lopping the top off, and pouring out the brine into the sink.Wow. People who know how to cook are really something.You remember that you have something to talk to her about - and you've already broached her drawing porn of you, already. No one needs another refresher about that.What do you ask?
>>20424228She wants our soul gem.We just asked her to do what she clearly feels is a very personal favor for a friend of ours, when she has feelings for us.
>>20424211>and you feel that the air between you has slightly changed, from her nervous cordiality to a slight chilly one.She is going the jelly/scorned route.Need more soulgem licking ASAP.Or I don't know. maybe do something nice for her for a change? We always treat her as an expendable subordinate.
>>20424238We should probably try to broach the topic of Iori, assuming that isn't going to further distress Midori at this point. Find out exactly what happened at that mission and how we can get Midori and Iori on speaking terms. Another topic for discussion is Midori's specific abilities so we can start planning tactics.
>>20424238>>20424251...Or now that's she is upset, we could ask here about what happened that night with Iori.MAXIMUM INSENSITIVITY.
>>20424251She's been in our service for less than 48 hours!Come ON, woman! Your expectations are unrealistic!
>>20424251How about we ask her to teach us to cook, if her cooking is really good?Chiaki learns the mystical art of cooking, and Midori feels important. Maybe we'll be able to make pancakes, with alcohol in the batter.
>>20424238>Midori being scornedI almost feel bad.Almost.
>>20424238"Are you... upset?"
>>20424238Give her a hug.
>>20424272thisI want to see the horrible things that come of this
>>20424272We have been expressly forbidden from whiskey pancakes after we needed locked in the cold-room for three months to wean us off them, last time.
>>20424272We made whiskey pancakes before. We ended up having to detox in the silent room for a few months afterwards.
>>20424272>Maybe we'll be able to make pancakes, with alcohol in the batter.We don't talk about this.There is not such thing as alcohol flavoured pancakes.NEVER AGAIN.
>>20424282>>20424285We don't have to make pancakes.I want to see us fail at cooking
>>20424272>>20424277You guys remember what happened when we were GIVEN those, correct?That would end beautifully badly.
>>20424238Either one of these"When did you realise you hadn't signed up to be sailor moon?""How many witches have you fought?""You know, you never told me about your former incubators name."
You know, that's not such a bad idea."Can you teach me how to make them?"Bringing up Iori can wait until we've gotten Midori drunk.
>>20424282>>20424285>>20424289Now I wonder if Chiaki will be able to resist if she does learn how to cook. It'll most likely end up horribly, but still . . . >>20424300Oh yes, I do. >Hue
>>20424238not sure bringing up Iori when shes piss jelly would be a smart thing to do, that is just fueling the fire.i do believe we are impressed at how she's handling the ingredients so maybe say something about that.
Ask her to teach us how to cook, and while we're cooking, talk to her about Iori. And how we're not fit to love anyone.
On a more neutral note, could ask about the magical girl turned witch that showed up at Mami's apartment. We have a physical description and Kyubey say he found out she was in Midori's old office.We could ask without bringing up that we were the one who executed her.
>>20424272I vote this, whilst we make awkward conversation.So, uh, raping my client, eh?
>>20424251Sometimes, she's just going to have to roll with the punches. We just showed a ton of understanding and tolerance with saying that we were OK with the continued publication of Miracle Midori. If this is the most awful thing that she has to do while she's in our service, then that would be a miracle in itself.>>20424238I feel as if the subject of the ongoing situation with Iori is something that we need to get out into the air before this trip ends, although we may want to see if we can ease into the subject later on. I'd say this might be a good time to ask her about the girl who witchified at Mami's apartment. We need to know if this was caused by a negligent incubator or if there's something fishy going on.
Could we get Midori to pretend to be us, and do our training for us? Then we can spend more time drinking.
>>20424333>witchified at Mami's apartmentYes
>>20424238We don't know if she knows the horrible, horrible truth behind magical girls.If we want to ask her that, perhaps start on the topic of witches. Then go from there.
The girls in Kyubey's office all seem to know about the Magical Girl/Witch relation. Not sure if Midori's incubator was as forthcoming with that information or not. Whatever the case, I think this line of questioning is better than bringing up Iori right now.
>>20424370That strikes me as something very murderface but I think we would end up with a bad end if we actually did it.Or Kharn slapping us upside the head and dragging us to the training area
>>20424370No, this is a terrible idea which will get us both killed.
>>20424395Hmmm. What do we actually want to achieve in regards to Iori? If she remembers Midori through the post traumatic haze of the whole thing, then the two of them should never meet. She isn't going to get over Midori's involvement, and if we try and make her we'll completely alienate her, and possibly make her an enemy
>>20424409>>20424415Ah, but we're showing an important leadership skill. Delegation!
>>20424370No.But how about getting Midori to dress up as Kharn and pretend to train us, then when Kharn asks us why we weren't training with her we tell her we were, and we'll have eyewitnesses to prove it.She'll be so confused.
Tell Midori our heart belongs to Pinky.
>>20424443>>20424440Well we certainly need to use her abilities a few times in a non-combat role before we try to do anything which might get us killed if it fails. I'm open to suggestions.
>>20424443I somehow suspect Kharn has a poor response to Wacky Hijinks.
>>20424429The problem is that Midori is our direct subordinate and thus will usually be with us while Iori may still harbor feelings for Matsuda and try to be with her thus the two are likely to meet regardless of how much we don't want them to. Trying to get some plan together to get Iori to not flip her shit is better than just doing nothing and waiting for it to all blow up in our faces.
>>20424429That's a minefield that I'm not sure we can navigate. Maybe having Mami back us up could get Iori to forgive Midori for her invovement in The Idolmaster mission. If Midori was involved on the job that eventually drove Yayoi to suicide, then shit is never getting fixed.
>>20424462Pretty sure it was mentioned that Midori was brought on due to Iori hiring a Magical Girl of her own.
>>20424470Nope.Murderface was hired due to the fact that Yayoi was raped right under the security teams noses and they wanted protection above and beyond the normalThe otaku also seemed to know Midori pretty well when they were trying to rape Iori and she was vomiting black sludge
>>20424483>right under the security team's noses... she was raped BY the security team. Just like they pulled with Iori.
>>20424451>>20424462So in that case, we need to find out exactly what Midori has been involved with. And as suggested, get Mami's advice before we combine the two. And since you are right about them meeting at some point, we need to talk to Mami before we leave Siberia.I can see it now, we land, head through the gate, Iori is waiting for us holding some Mami pancakes and cutlery... then she sees Midori and tries to kill her with a fork. The tragedy being the potentially dropped pancakes of course.
>>20424238"So, what did I do to piss you off?"
>>20424373 >>20424372 >>20424333 >>20424321You try to ignore this strange mood that's somehow come over what should be a relatively pleasant experience of cooking something for your host - well, having YOUR subordinate cook something for your host - and you bring up the subject about Witches in an almost casual way, sticking an unlit cigarette between your lips in the process. You like to smoke, sure, and you go through more than two packs a day or so, but even you know that it's bad form to smoke inside a kitchen, while food is being made.Only dung-shoveling yokels do that. Dung-shoveling yokels who get dragged outside and shot."What about Witches, Sempai?" Midori asks after a moment, not missing a beat as she murders more cabbage. Thud-thud-thud-thud, like an expert chef on one of those shows where one of the judges grins maniacally at the camera as if the judge was about to rape the camera's children, before taking a bite out of an airborne bell pepper that comes out of fucking nowhere. "I've fought some before, and yes, before you ask, my Incubator - or rather, ex-Incubator - made it perfectly clear that it's what we turn into if we don't take care of ourselves. So no, you don't need to break it to me..." Another thud as she plants the smile of the cleaver into the wooden chopping block, before pushing past you to get the other ingredients ready. Flour, eggs, some sort of soy sauce. The takoyaki maker being quickly washed and the plate brushed with oil. "...like I'm some sort of novice."[1/2]
>>20424493Part of the team.Remember half the team got killed and we recognized the head guard among the otaku.
>>20424447>>20424487Well, MY heart belongs to Pinky, at least.
>>20424511Well, that's good. That means less work for you, then.You segue rather neatly into the incident where you found one of them in Mami's apartment, without any sort of preamble or warning. You're sure you never stepped into a barrier, either, while you approached it. Dodging the fact that you were the one to execute her - and you take a moment to prevent yourself from bragging, as it WAS a picture-perfect shot to begin with - you give her a physical description that she should be able to form a strong mental picture with. She stops in the middle of mixing the batter as she blinks towards you."That's...that sounds like Asuka Yuuri, Sempai. One of the girls that joined up with the Saints a while back. She never really gelled with the other members, and I heard she disappeared a few months ago." She shakes her head. "...It's...we thought she went rogue or something, joined up wih another agency, but witching out..."Midori audibly swallows, and continues to mix the batter, albeit a bit slowly this time. "M-man. I guess it can really happen to anyone, huh...?"Ask another question.Reassure her that if she ever witched out, you'll do your best to make her end painless.Let Midori cook in peace and do something else.
>>20424500>timestop>rescue pancakes>shut Pinky up with one>order Midori not to fight back>wait for Iori to tire herself out>comment on her terrible stabbing form>>20424520I was thinking of posting that.
>>20424523ON WHICH NOTE.Have we checked our Soul Gem since our little visit from Pinky on the plane? Have we checked MIDORI's?
>>20424523>[X]Reassure her that if she ever witched out, you'll do your best to make her end painless.Then>[X]Ask another question.Try to delicately segue into the Idolmaster case. As delicately as Matsuda can at any rate. Who knows much quiet time we'll get before we meet up with Iori again, so we should use what free time we get.
>>20424523[x]Ask another question.Is she aware of any other of her former Incubator's employees going missing without explanation?Also, anyone who used ostentatious golden weapons? We had a coworker like that.
>>20424523[X]Reassure her that if she ever witched out, you'll do your best to make her end painless.[X] check both our and Midori's soul gem on that note
>>20424523>"M-man. I guess it can really happen to anyone, huh...?"It will be okay as long as we watch out for each other.
The witch called us Homura before we executed her, something only Pinky has done since then.Ask her if this girl was acting strange in any way at all before she went missing.
>>20424523You watch my back, I watch yours. I promise you that it'll only take one shot. I hope that you'll do the same for me.What can you tell me about your last mission for your incubator?
>>20424523[x]Ask her if she slept with Iori like we saw.
>>20424523Ask another question.What's the best way to deal with a being of godlike power that seems to have a major yandere complex over you?
[x] Ask another questionLet's ask about Iori, trying to be slightly less subtle than a sledgehammer
>>20424664This. And if she gets defensive, just say it would feel weird to know -our- subordinate was attracted to our employer. That could cause problems, after all, and we need Midori to keep things professional while on the clock, just like we do with anyone we work for.
>Slowly going the path of bullying Midori>MFW
>>20424763"Less"?I don't think we need to TRY to be less subtle.We are not given to subtlety.
>>20424664>>20424763Let's not do either of those things.
>>20424664 >>20424600 >>20424570 >>20424549You idly check your own Soul Gem as the conversation turns into what people in your industry refers to as forced retirement - i.e. that part of the story where the heroine ends up as the villain, that life lesson where if you don't look out, you become the thing you hate (and are paid to exterminate). Endearingly termed 'witching out' - it's something Magical Girls are loathe to bring up or discuss, even in private. You're not too sure you should be bringing it up either, but you have and you are....Nope, you're still safe. A bit of black roiling inside it, but nothing major. You quietly ask for Midori to show you her gem, and she acquiesces, a tiny bit of her nervousness around you returning as the bauble manifests into reality - and she's clean, too. You nod at this, and she returns it into its inert form, as a ring around her left ring finger.You begin to speak after she starts to make the actual takoyaki, now, pouring spoonfuls of batter into batches of shredded cabbage placed on each dimple on the maker, turning every half-formed savory treat every so often with a pair of long chopsticks. Adding more batter as they form into their trademark spherical shapes.You tell her that should ever the time come that she witches out, you'll make sure she passes with dignity - and as little pain as you can afford. You can only hope that she does the same for you, too, should that ever come to pass.[1/2]
>>20424779>bullying Midori>she turns witch>kills Iori/Misaka/Mami before we can take her out>all our faultI'm not saying that we have to girlbone her, but we should at LEAST be nice to our friends and tolerable to our coworkers. We're sending her mixed signals and just generally being a cunt, which is something I thought we were trying to move away from.
>>20424828>battle between doppleganger yandere and faust yanderebueno
>>20424828Fine, fine. But I at least want us to bully her in the "Teasing sempai is mean, uwaa~" way.
>>20424845She could also decide that other people liking us gets in the way of us loving her, and only her, like we should. And then absolutely ruin all our friendships by pretending to be us and undermining everyone we care about, while telling us that it's not our fault and the others just don't trusts us as much as they should; as much as SHE does, because she loves us, and don't we love her too? Of course we love her, she's the only one left who even talks to us, and that's love, right? Even if everyone else abandons us, she never will, right? So we have to love her. WE HAVE TO LOVE HER OR ELSE!
>>20424874I doubt Murderface possesses the necessary social acumen to tread that line.
>>20424828Midori's witch form?
>>20424877And then we turn full yandere and wear her skin.
>>20424877>ruin all our friendshipswe have friends besides mami and misaki?
>>20424887It's not that hard. We just tease her instead of being all "Hey Midori that porn you made of us was pretty good, I want to see more of it, oh by the way I'm going to go show affection to other girls and ignore you now, what's wrong are you upset are you frustrated but why? Now go make the other girl we supposedly don't even know some delicious food so we can give it to her as a present."
>>20424890This looks vaguely familiar. What is it from?>>20424908Kyoko considers us her friend. And don't forget Misaka.
>>20424887I agree, lets just strive to be professional and nice. If we try to be nice then when we fuck up at least we won't come across as too horrible. Where as if we try to be jokingly horrible when we fuck that up we'll just come across as dicks.
>>20424895Why is everyone so Yandere?!
>>20424890Should be greener I think.
>>20424908Ostensibly Kharn, though I feel somewhat iffy on that. Kyoko's our friend. And of course our #1 Supporter Pinky.
>>20424908Kyoko, and Sayaka could charitably be called a friend.
>>20424922Kirby: Canvas Curse
>>20424824She looks at you in mid-takoyaki-flip, eyes wide, cheeks faintly crimsoning. And it's then that she turns back to her creations, which are starting to smell like actual food."A-as if you had to ask, sempai. Of course I will. Or rather, I'll try my best." Midori gives you a wan smile. "I'm not too sure if I can do something like that, myself, but I won't let you die alone, Matsuda-sempai."You nod at this, the mood clearing up somewhat. That's good.It's then that you ask her another question.Did she really sleep with Iori? It's what you saw during her illusion, after all. Add to that, did she help in Yayoi getting raped, too?You see the question jar Midori physically, making her flinch hard enough that she nearly drops the cooking chopsticks in her hands - and when she turns to look at you, you know that you've done something wrong. Even you can't miss something like that.She turns back towards the takoyaki maker, silently, and continues to flip the now-roasting spheres of dough, cabbage and squid. Her movements quicker, but more robotic. You frown at this, and you make to ask the question again - and it's then that you get nine takoyaki, placed neatly in a bowl and drizzled rather professionally with hot sauce, thrust into your hands by the rims."I...I only helped. I never did anything with your precious idol, Matsuda-sempai." Midori's voice is brittle and cold, like the snow outside. "The worst I ever got was to cuddle with her in my underwear. I made you see that so you wouldn't get any ideas about getting close while I made her sleep. Coincidentally, she was the one who thought that scenario up, so your pure idol isn't as pure as you think."[2/3]
>>20424890I kind of envision Midori's with having a loneliness/broken heart theme, possibly with Homuhomurabu imagery mixed in.
>>20424965>pure idol>implying we think ANYONE is pure in ANY way if they aren't mami
>>20424965Dick move, us.
You know, if Deculture wanted to start the downward spiral. He could have Oktavia von Seckendorff appear while we are in Siberia, and Kyoko has died/almost witchified fighting her.
>>20424965CLARIFICATION. WE MUST CLARIFICATION.She is our principle. She remains our principle. This may cause issues if she wants to murder our new, immediate subordinate, since it's going to be necessary for BOTH of you to spend a lot of time in our presence once we get back from Siberia.
>>20425006>CLARIFICATION. WE MUST CLARIFICATION.I think this will only make things worse.
>>20424965"Midori. I know full well she's a horny slut. And she's not so precious to me as you think. I was just curious."Facepalm at all these touchy-feely emotional girls around us.
>>20424965>your precious idol"She's our employer, and nothing more. -Possibly- a friend, though it's not like she's ever going to actually understand what the whole Magical Girl thing is like. And you completely misunderstood why I was asking."Then we hug Midori, and eat one of the takoyaki.
>>20424965Aww shit. Full damage control. Fire the apology cannons, damn the friendship torpedoes, and don't spare the niceties. Battle stations, battle stations!
>>20425006We must remind her that our little visit to our principal was all about making sure she didn't get the wrong idea about our relationship, which is and will remain purely professional.
>>20424965"I was never under the illusion that she was pure"
>>20425002We just told Sayaka where to get a butler uniform and what happens if you lick a soul gem, I don't think she'll be anywhere near despair for a while yet.
>>20425002Or Kyoko becomes Ophelia from Sayaka's constant gem licking forcing her into despair.But that won't happen right?RIGHT?
Pinky's probably laughing her ass off right about now.
>>20424965"Oh FFS. I have just spent some very uncomfortable scenes convincing her that i'm not into her, she's just a client. lease don't make me have to give the speech to everyone around me, too."
Guys, chill, this is standard for us. Now we get to show how much we've improved, by clarifying and not letting this get worse than it has to. This was never going to be a pleasant conversation, but we can make it bearable if we try really hard.
>>20425045I'm not sure how near-constant orgasms constitutes despair.
>>20424965You frown at this. Where did she get the notion--? You open your mouth to object, to protest about your subordinate suddenly being so smart and astute that she's torn out the words out of your mouth even before you considered saying them."And no, I did not help in getting Takatsuki Yayoi raped. I don't know how they managed to pull that off, but I was only brought in when they heard that you were being brought in." There's a metal snap as she switches the takoyaki maker off, and she washes her hands again. "There. You have your takoyaki, sempai, and your answers. May I be excused, now?"She doesn't wait for your reply as she pushes past you. "Good. I'll be in my room if you need me, and I'm sure you won't, not with Black Eyes Titty Monster eager to reconnect with you, sempai." She storms off in a huff, leaving you with a bowl of freshly-made takoyaki in your hands.You flinch as you hear a door being slammed, and Souji shouting about not slamming the doors.Well. That could've gone over better, you think.What do you do, now?
>>20425021>>20425037Those!Also."Please don`t try to pull off the same thing she did by huffing and puffing and being pissy because I don`t jump all over you. It`s annoying. "
>>20425075Despair for our future if all personnel management is this much of a chore.
>rewatching the anime>you can create instant witches by overloading grief seedsGentlemen, I hereby propose project "Fuck The World".
>>20425075See, this is what happens when people assume that we are a functioning human being when talking with us.
>>20425075No helping it now. Eat a squid ball, see what Midori's cooking is like. Then wait around a bit for Kharn.
>>20425075Look what you jerks did. You should have just made her raid Kharn's panty drawer like I suggested, even THAT would have gone over better than making her cook for her and calling her a rapist.
>>20425075What do we do?WE FOLLOW HER! WE FOLLOW AND WE explain calmly and carefully that she misunderstood what we were asking for, reinforce the fact that our intentions towards Kharn are just apologizing for forgetting our own Sempai, and that the time she accompanied us to Iori's place was to remind Iori she's just our employer and nothing more.
>>20425075You know... we could use a drink. Or 20. [X] Get drunk before we go hunting.
>>20425075Eat Takoyaki, Find booze, sit at kitchen table removing blood from our alcohol system.
>>20425075Call Kharn. Tell her there's a present for her in the kitchen.Then go after Midori, and GET AUTHORITATIVE.If we let this shit get any further out of hand it could affect our work, and that can only lead to lots of people dying horribly.
>>20425117No, let her rest for a bit. Chasing after her immediately tends to backlash.Allow time for everyone to calm down, *then* hit her with the clue bat.
>>20425102I think that we are well ahead of you!
>>20425123>removing blood from our alcohol systemI like that.
>>20425132thisWe should apologize, but we should also make it clear that outburst was not appropriate.
>>20425132Good point. Changing my vote to this: Give Midori some cooldown time, THEN we go clear things up. But we should definitely do so before she goes to bed.
>>20425075We are improving. However, we must continue to be true to our character. We should try to fix this, but in a direct way.Go to her door, knock 5 times, since it's our favourite number. If no answer, we knock the door down. We then explain that as our subordinate, if we're going to be interacting with our principal at all we need to know the full situation. And as a friend, we wanted to know what had happened. She may not like the question, but she almost enabled some pretty despicable things, so she can shut up and deal with it.Now, even we can tell she is distressed, so unless she has anything else to add, that is the last we will speak of the whole incident.Then add a sorry for making her upset. Because we're classy like that.
Should have waited until Midori was drunk before bringing up Iori.At any rate, I think an immediate apology /explenation is in order. She's our first direct subordinate and we don't need her feeling vindictive and obstinate at a sensitive time.Follow her, praise her cooking, I dunno. We're going to be in Siberia for a long time and Mami isn't around to fix everything for Chiaki.
God help us if being a Warmaster means constantly dealing with overly hormonal teenage girls.We should explain to Midori that Iori was just an employer and that if we are to work with her we needed to clear up the Idolmaster case. As for Kharn, she just a friend and taken so don't be so jealous.
>>20425075...And that`s that. Screw Midori, she is pulling the same shit on us as Iori and I think even Chiaki is getting sick and tired of dealing with this Iori/Midori/Pinky harem-bullshit.Pretty much the only person who is genuinly nice to us without expecting something in return was Mami.If we ever should go down the Yuri-Route, Mami seems to be the best option.
>>20425075Taste a takoyaki.Got to her door, gently knock on it (don't open)."I'm sorry Midori, I didn't mean to upset you.Your cooking taste good, thank you for making it.I'll leave you be now."
>>20425174>overly hormonal teenage girlsYou're new to the PMMM setting, huh?
>>20425123We're a lich, we can make this literal.We WILL make it literal.To the bar!
>>20425181Pretty much. Though Mami is more of a mother figure than a love interest. I could see Chiaki trying, but it wouldn't get anywhere. We've already settled into our role as her enforcer quite nicely, and we don't even have the warmaster's cap.
>>20425181She's a young, confused girl and she's smitten as hell, God help her. I'm not saying let every girl in a frilly outfit walk all over us, but try to keep it in perspective. Plus, she is dealing with us.
>>20425158Something like this, but I think we should talk through the door if it doesn't open.
>>20425205True. It's only fairly recently our multiple personalities have learned to speak to one another civilly. Even if we do have not one, not two, but THREE trains in our head with us. And that is terrible.
At whatever point we apologize to Midori, we should mention that this is exactly what we warned her of when we said she should get the Full Murderface Experience before falling for us; we're horribly socially inept, we say the wrong thing and fail to pick up on anything short of an outright statement of facts, and we, to be entirely blunt as we always are, feel like we're a worthless prospect for a relationship ANYWAY. If that's going to cause problems like this one for her, and she can't handle it maturely, then she probably wouldn't be happy with us no matter what else happens.
>>20425205Why exactly is Midori so infatuated with Matsuda?The doujins were apparently a coincidence, Midori just need a dark magical girl for a character and Murderface happened to fit that description. She doesn't really know Matsuda at all besides some rumors so as far as I can tell she's just a fangirl.
>>20425158I like this. Do this then go get drunk.
>>20425181Going to have to agree with that. Someone who doesn't actively make dealing with them a painful process would be nice. I'd say Kharn, but diary.
>>20425117>>20425116>>20425131>>20425144>>20425158>>20425163>>20425168Did I miss the change from Magical Girl Noir Quest to Magical Girl LETS APOLOGIZE TO FUCKING EVERYONE BECAUSE THEY ACT LIKE TWATS IF WE DONT LET THEM INTO OUR PANTIES QUEST.What the fuck is wrong with you people?
>>20425075The Iori scew-up is still pretty fresh in our minds. Maybe this time we should be more proactive.[x]Find her, bang on the door. Whether or not she opens up, explain that we're not into Iori or Kharn like that, and that we weren't asking to offend her but to make sure we had all the facts in regards to our principle and the situation we nearly botched before, as well as a better idea of what Midori can do. And that maybe we didn't go about it in the most intelligent way. Apologize, thanks for the snacks, and then leave her to stew on it.
>>20425236>Why exactly is Midori so infatuated with Matsuda?>she's just a fangirl.You answered your own question.She is a teen fangirl. You can't get more crazy infatuated than that. It's all based on our reputation, the idea of ourself she built in her head and of course her doujin amplified the whole thing.
fuck this bitching shit.We have bears to shoot.
>>20425236Because once you've built up a figure based on someone in your head, it becomes very difficult to separate that from the actual person.The doujins have been around for Some Time. They have been ongoing. Murder Mayumi is a character who probably has a considerable amount of Midori's headspace.And then the actual Murderface shows up.
I found a thing too:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQdVk4G5vJY
>>20425275>>20425271I agree. We just bashed Iori in for this shit. We will not cave to Iori 2.0!
>>20425271Most of the time I would agree that we apologise too much. But you really see no problem with bringing up the rapist stuff? Really?
>>20425236I think she's cast us into the abrasive-but-ultimately-in-love-with-her role like that in her doujins, and we didn't help by giving her a stay of execution when most others would've killed her, telling her 'maybe later' when she wanted to confess, and so on.
>>20425233Thirding this. It's a good point to make.
>>20425303And your point is?
>>20425295To be fair, assisting in a rape is pretty hard to excuse. I know Midori didn't have much of a choice in the matter, but still.
>>20425303Quite a lot of those things may apply to HomuHomu, but they sure as hell are not part of the Murderface Experience.Refined and Graceful manner? Sure! We extend our pinky while gripping the neck of our whiskey bottle.
>>20425328Extending ones pinky makes everything 20% more civilized
>>20425294The difference is that Iori was being a brat just because she thought we were sleeping around when she had some kind of claim to her or something. Midori's being a brat because we're making her fucking cook for someone she's afraid of/doesn't like and treating her like a ladyservant, and then turned around and accused her of not only helping a team of rapists(which she loathed), but of actively sleeping with Iori under disguise, which is rape in itself.We have treated her like DIRT.
Every time I read "The murderface experience" I think of it as being a cheap fair ground ride where you get sprayed with booze and cigarette smoke while waxwork teen lesbians declare their love for you.
>>20425347>get sprayed with booze, blood and cigarette smokeFTFY
>>20425295Not really. She did work with rapists after all so its only logical to assume that she did that already before we kneecapped her.It seems that the only one who actually forgot that she was okay with assisting someone in childrape is Midori herself. Yes, I am aware that its not nice to bring that in the open, but this is how things stand.
>>20425347That sums it up pretty neatly, actually.Worth it for the complimentary pancakes at the end of the ride.
>>20425347Surprisingly accurate to our experiences thus far!Although to TRULY duplicate it, it would need to be alternating sprays of booze, cigarette smoke, and KNIVES.
>>20425347I would ride the fuck out of that.
>>20425183 >>20425158 >>20425156You place the bowl of takoyaki down on the kitchen countertop, and you spear one of the doughy savory treats with a fork - a small puff of steam escaping from the piping-hot ball of cabbage and squid. You pop it into your mouth before it disintegrates on the fork's prongs, and you wince slightly as the overt spiciness - and the temperature - of the takoyaki stings your tongue. You chew after a few moments, and swallow carefully.It's...it's certainly not Mami's cooking. But it's decent. Certainly better than the ones you've had from stands and stalls and such. Actually, if you didn't judge everything by the benchmark that is Mami's cooking, you'd say it was good.There's a clank of metal as Kharn steps into the kitchen, a puzzled expression on her face."Murderface, did something happen? Your subordinate nearly crashed into me earlier while I was on my way back. She apologized, but it was clear her heart was not into it. And--" It's then that she stops, and sniffs the air. "What is that divine smell--ah!" Her red-pinned midnight eyes swivel towards the bowl of takoyaki in front of you, and she takes in the rest of the kitchen - including the now-cooling takoyaki maker. "You...you made takoyaki for me, Murderface? After I have so selfishly insinuated that you should?" [1/2]
>>20425347Need to add in gunsmoke and people constantly trying to kill you and you've pretty much got it. Maybe throw in sanity breaking Pinky at the end of the ride for a rememberable experience.
>>20425377A beautiful blush comes over your former partner's pale cheeks, and she steps closer, almost reverently. "I...I can smell their perfection, even when I am still so far away..."You manage a small smile and nudge the bowl towards her. It's a bit surprising, really, to see someone like Kharn so excited over something as trivial as takoyaki.Like you tend to be with Mami's pancakes."If...if it is alright, then..." Kharn murmurs, reverently taking your fork with her black, skeletal fingers.What do you do?Let her eat, and ask her about our past.Let her eat. Go to Midori and apologize.Let her eat and sleep until it's time for bear hunting.
>>20425342It was going to be painful for all parties involved no matter when we brought it up.Now the healing can begin while we drown ourselves in alcohol.
>>20425365And painkillers. Can't forget the painkillers.
>>20425386Let her eat. Let's go talk to Midori.
>>20425386>Let her eat. Go to Midori and apologize.We should also mention that Midori made the takoyaki so Kharn doesn't get any funny ideas. We have enough crazy lesbians trying to seduce us.
Aw shit, there was a thread this whole time I was playing.Anyway I believe that Midori has every reason to feel needless. Considering our recent attidude towards her, It's like we saved her out of pity.Should the opportunity arise, let's invite her to a shooting range or something. She needs morale boost
>>20425386Let her eat. Go to Midori and apologize.
>>20425342>We have treated her like DIRT.We are the only reason she's still alive. She could be a *bit* more thankful for that.
>>20425386Oh shit, Kharn is lesbians for Chiaki.This is not good.
And I see the retard train has arrived just in time.Go apologize and say this is what we meant about the full murderface experience, Iori isn't that precious to us despite what she thinks and thank her for the taoyaki.Then go hunt bears and let her et over whatever issues she has about the fact we are friendly with Kharn ( who probably reminds her of the saints )
>>20425408Which we did. That and the inherent munchkinism of the average fa/tg/uy.
>>20425386Leave her to enjoy herself, with a passing mention that Midori made them for herThen we go explain things to Midori.
>>20425386>[x]Let her eat. Go to Midori and apologize.Also tell Kharn that it was Midori that made them. We can't cook for shit.
>>20425417>Oh shit, Kharn is lesbians for Chiaki.EVERYONE is lesbian for Chiaki.Even guys.
>>20425417No, Kharn is lesbians for Takoyaki.There is a subtle but significant difference.
[x]Let her eat, and ask her about our past.
>>20425429This. And mention the Full Murderface Experience thing when we talk to Midori.
Let her eat and go talk to Midori.
>>20425386[X]Let her eat. Tell Her Midori Made Them, Because We're Kitchen Inept. Then Go to Midori and apologize For The Full Murderface Experience.
>>20425386[X]Let her eat. Go to Midori and apologize.Mention our subordinate made them after we asked her and that maybe she should et to know her so that she sees that they have more in common than she believes.And that we aren't lusting for Kharn and as far as we know vice versa
>>20425386Let her eat, and ask her about our past.Let Midori cool off, better get some insight into what Chiaki forgot.Oh and do mention that Modori made the food.>>20425417No shit.
>>20425427I believe It like taking animals home.At first, It's cute and adorable but then you have to feed It, pay It your attention and sometimes take It outside and nobody in the house wants to do that.I mean, I we are to take care of the Greenie, let's show her that she's our valuable asset
>>20425377Meant to post this earlier but I was interrupted by some pressing phonecalls. It was just going to be a crappy doodle, but then there were a few days of no thread so I spent the time coloring it, so now it's a crappy doodle in glorious technicolor.
>>20425386[x]Let her eat, and ask her about our past.Screw Midori.
>>20425386>>Let her eat, and ask her about our past.we'll bother Midori later
>>20425489>Screw MidoriWell, some of us seem to be trying, but I'd settle for just patching things up with her.
>>20425386[X]Let her eat. Go to Midori and apologize.Also, it should go without saying that we should tell Kharn that Midori made those for her and not us.
>>20425386>Let her eat, and ask her about our past.At least say we didn't make it. We'll talk to Miracle Midori later.
Can we at least apologise in an assertive and forceful manner? Seeing as we weren't subtle, but the questions had to be asked since she wasn't going to broach the subject and we NEEDED to know. Now, whether she likes it or not, she's our subordinate. If she still wants to be our friend, well, that's up to her, but at least we now know that we -want- to be hers."Oh, and Kharn enjoyed your Takoyaki. Black Eyes Titty Monster Sempai will thank you in person later."
Some speculation about the whole bit about "copies" of Homura and all that junk.Pinky already mentioned that she thought that Chiaki was one of the copies, but was now unsure by some of the actions we did. Could it be possible that there are other not-Homuras running around in the world? Fabiola mentioned that the Head Maid at Lovelace's place looked almost exactly like Chiaki when she dressed up as a maid. There was also some mention of suspicious business going on with her when we last visited the Lovelace mansion. Kharn also seems to share many visual similarities with Chiaki (and a reverence bordering on obsession for certain types of foods), although that could be attributed to Murderface taking after her mentor/trainer. I wonder if it's possible that there are many incarnations of Homura running around in the universe, taking on different aspects of Homura's personality. Or if they are a result of Faust's attempts to recreate her with an incomplete understanding of Homura's psyche.
>>20425400>>20425386>>20425402>>20425411I am really starting to loathe you people, its the same shit with Iori all over again and instead of doing something useful like prodding Kharn about our past you people want to go and tearjerk over MidoriXChiaki. Its like you can fucking see every time /a/-uguu~-crowd comes over to shit on our carpet.
>>20425546Keep in mind that we can ask Kharn later.Right now, we could lose a valuable asset if we keep on abusing her.
>>20425546I can see your game. You're just trying to get people to ditch Midori so we can hit on your waifu, Kharn instead.
>>20425546Can't speak for the rest of them, but I'm aiming for just being a professional and defusing relationship drama. Midori being all pissy and jealous is just going to cause problems later on, best to deal with it while we can.And we're already scheduled for a Kharn flashback.
>>20425546You do realise that DESPAIR has a direct correlation with JESUS CHRIST WITCH, right?Iori, I do not give a shit about, but let's at least attempt to maintain the emotional stability of people who could turn into murderous arcane horrors if we don't?>Captcha: But Sempai>Wut.
>>20425546Except we have all the time to prod Kharn about our past but probably should apologize for outright insulting our subordinate who we have so far treated pretty terribly.On the same token every time someone yells "screw X they are just a bitch" I can smell the 40kid grimderp bullshit rolling off them.Trying to improve ourself means we actually do things like apologize for being a massive cunt instead of just ignoring it and getting drunk or doing whatever else we feel like.
>>20425546Not the same. Iori I was against apologizing to. Midori, well, she's in a better position to mess things up than Iori. It's pre-emptive damage control. No need to start getting all uppity just because some people don't agree with you.
>>20424487Oh wow. I didn't even realize the bad pun. I was just pushing towards a HomuMado end.
>>20425546Why would we make our subordinate feel like shit?We are going to be a Warmaster and Midori is automatically placed as our assistant.To hell with waifuing
>>20425546Kharn has already offered to reminisce, an offer which Chiaki can take her up on at any time.This, however, is a typical neckbeard moment. Which we want to rectify. Post haste. Before it bites us in the ass.
>>20425411 >>20425402 >>20425400"...Delicious. This is...this is just like how I imagined them to be, back at Mitakihara! Ah!" You hear Kharn exult softly as she rests one brutally-clawed hand against her cheek, sunless eyes closed as she savors the taste. It's then that you stop and do a double-take as you see the beginnings of tears welling up at the corner of her eyes.Wow. You know Midori was good, but not THAT good.You pat Kharn on the back and leave her to it, mentioning off-handedly that it was your subordinate, Hanegawa Midori, who made those savory treats she was now enjoying with gusto. A sniff and a gulp, and Kharn reopens her eyes, nodding as she spears another one with her fork."I-is that so? T-then I suppose you have not changed, much, Murderface," Kharn laughs, sounding more like a giggle than anything. "You have always been horrible with the culinary arts. Only you could set cereal on fire while putting milk into the bowl."You're...that's not good news at all. You tell her to enjoy her snack while you make certain that your subordinate doesn't do anything foolish."Alright. good luck, but, ah, if she is distressed, just wait until later, when we are hunting bears." Kharn grins at you. "The surest way to mend a friendship is to kill large things together."That makes...an astoundingly high amount of sense, so you say that you'll remember that, as you leave the kitchen and make your way back to the quarters.[1/2]
>>20425521Calling us a "faulty copy" is not the same thing as calling us a clone, unless I missed something earlier.
>>20425573This, pretty much. We deal with this now, decisively, we continue to have a loyal and incredibly useful resource. Fuck it up? We have yet another hanger on and even more drama. Kharn will keep, so short of tragic bear mauling death robbing us of answers, Midori is the only time sensitive option.
>>20425568Except: We didn`t abuse her. We asked her some questions that should have gotten answers even before the fucking flight. I do really believe that there is a point reached where Chiaki would say "Fuck them and fuck this shit!" because we had to deal first with Iori being Jelly, then with Pinky and now even with fucking Midori and all that in just a couple of days. So no, fuck her. Let her calm down and maybe she will realize herself that acting like a brat annoys us greatly.
>>20425606>Homer casts fire.gif
This is why we should have just killed her. She's not going to be use useful, she's going to get pissy every time we talk to a girl that isn't her, and she's going to go insane if we don't fuck her.But no, she's not going to stab us in the back! The collar won't chaff her neck!
>>20425606>"The surest way to mend a friendship is to kill large things together."Oh yes.
>>20425386[x]Let her eat, go find wherever Midori's holed up and continue the aforementioned mission to give her a non-sappy but non-bitchy explaination about how nobody is our waifu and we just wanted to get all the details so we'd be able to better preform our duties, and kind of effed up. Sorry and thanks for the grub. Then let her be.Simple. As. That.
>>20425606>You pat Kharn on the backThat's like our superpower isn't it?I'm starting to think we can fix even fix Pinky with it.
>>2042560What are we Homer Simpson?
>>20425642Next time we see pinky we have to pat her on the head. It may be all she needs is a little affection.
>>20425621Actually we have pretty much walked all over her, just about gave her a heart attack with the manga thing, used her as a pack animal and got her to cook food for a friend of ours that she dislikes.That's a pretty big list of things that are pretty dickish on their own but one on top of the other? That's just way past reasonable.
>>20425606"Please also be telling her of my compliments! But hot sauce should be much hotter!" Kharn calls after you, making you furrow your brow. Was she serious? Midori was already using habanero sauce, for crying out loud.You come to a stop in front of Midori's quarters. The door is locked, of course, and you could hear her crying inside, slightly muffled. That's...well. At least she's still there, and you can talk to her. She doesn't have a way to escape or block you out.You take off your glasses for a moment to pinch the bridge of your nose. Is this how it's going to be, really? Is this what a Warmaster deals with? Because you'll tell Kyuubey right now that he can fuck off with the rank, whatever it entails. You're not cut out for this, and you have no ambition of pretending to be. You are not Mami Tomoe.Still, Midori's...well, your very first subordinate, and people did seem impressed that you were handling someone rather competently for the first time. Maybe the situation can be rectified, at least.You bang on her door a couple of times. Getting nothing but a weak 'Go away, sempai' as a response.How do you proceed?
... Y'know, this has just occurred to me. But...Deculture, is this entire plot building up to a lame JoJo's Bizarre Adventure reference/pun?The similarities between the Golden Weapons and the Major Arcana have been pointed out before. The Fool being generally representative of the protagonist at 0 is presumably Chiaki herself.It's been heavily implied that the golden weapons are parts necessary for the repair of our magical, timestoppy shield.Continuing the numbering, that would make said magic, timestoppy shield...XXI - ZA WARUDO.
>>20425684beat the door down.We're not being meek about this at least.>>20425692Our gun is 7 or 12 I think. So you're wrong on the first line.
>>20425684Polite but frank. No fawning over her, but no being a cow either.
>>20425684Invite her to a shooting range.And meekly say "sorry"
>>20425684>"I'm sorry Midori, I didn't mean to upset you.>Your cooking taste good, thank you for making it.>I'll leave you be now."
>>20425684Nope, I have had enough trouble come from leaving people alone after I offended them lately to last me a lifetime so open the door up before I decide to explode it.
>>20425684>The door is locked, of course, and you could hear her crying inside, slightly muffledNot this shit again..
>>20425708The gun is VIII - Justice.Generally associated with impartiality, coldness, rationality and insensitivity.It was the one we started with.
>>20425684"No. I need to... talk. And I swear, if you make me actually say 'apologize', I will lock you in the Cold Room with Misaka and a plate of broccoli."Regardless of if she lets us in or not, just keep explaining ourselves. Full Murderface Experience reiteration, let her know Iori is just an employer and Kharn is just our Sempai, and that Midori herself is a friend - and she got that far much faster than anyone else we know, let alone anyone we've met first in a hostile combat situation. That alone should be proof enough that we like her.
>>20425684>>20425721Or alternatively we go full Murderface, we shotgun open the door and RUB OUR EXCUSES IN HER FACE UNTIL SHE LIKES IT.Then lit two cigarettes and go bang Kharn.Like a boss.
>>20425684"Open the door and take our apology or I'll use a MIG to open it." "No, I'm not joking."
>>20425684"Either open the door or I'll knock it down."Then, reposting this >>20425515Can we at least apologise in an assertive and forceful manner? Seeing as we weren't subtle, but the questions had to be asked since she wasn't going to broach the subject and we NEEDED to know. Now, whether she likes it or not, she's our subordinate. If she still wants to be our friend, well, that's up to her, but at least we now know that we -want- to be hers."Oh, and Kharn enjoyed your Takoyaki. Black Eyes Titty Monster Sempai will thank you in person later."
And remember, "I'm sorry you are upset" does not count as a proper apology!
As much as I'm against waifuing, I don't think that threatening her is going to help.Just like Kharn said, let's kill some bears with her and hope for the best
>>20425656No. No affection for playing god with us. If we do that, she will walk all over us; instead, we should exert calm and assertive energy and take charge. Otherwise every magical girl-god-witch that comes our way will walk all over us and dominate our life and household.>>20425515>>20425684Seems to be a good gist of it. We absolutely needed to know, but we are not gooding at speak and very bad at social interaction. Did not want to offend. That's probably going to be a large part of the Matsuda/Murderface experience.Also, make sure she knows Iori is an idol. Not our waifu in any sense.
>>20425684"Look. Listen. I'm no good at this. First off, I told you it wasn't going to be easy working with me. The Chiaki Murderface Matsuda experience, remember? Second off, I don't have romantic designs on ANYONE, so don't accuse me of that waifu crap. I have accomplices and principals and not much more than that."*Breath*"Third off.. I'm sorry. I was only asking about the other stuff so I'd have a clearer picture of what happened with that mission, how everyone was involved. Where I fucked up, maybe. And it turns out where I fucked up was how I asked you about it.""Also, sorry about using you as a maid. Now I'm going to go see if there's some Kong in this god-forsaken base." *Walk away like a boss*
This shit was so much easier when we could just shoot bitches, then go home and get fucked up on cheap whisky and painkillers.
>>20425809I like that.Too bad It's probably too late
>>20425684>How do you proceed?Insist on opening and talking to her. Failing that, open the door forcefully.proceed with>>20425515
>>20425810Here's hoping we get to play Murderface in the flashback. We can be both in character and competing as a thread to see who can be the most bloodthirsty.
>>20425809>sorry about using you as a maidb-bbut that's the entire point of being leader of the magical work, we don't have to carry our shit around anymore.
>>20425810Yep. We should hang out with Kyoko more often, she's the only one of all our magic girl colleagues that shares our interests. PLus she's already in a relationship so no drama.
>>20425809>>20425744Those two. Shotgun open the door and go full SHUT UP! SHUT UP AND TAKE MY APOLLOGY!
>>20425809You could add the bit that we only made her cook because doing so ourself would most likely destroy the kitchen.
>>20425849Shit. Well there goes that plan.
>>20425809This is the best option.
>>20425684those questions had to be asked, one way or another, we just happen to ask them at the most inopportune times.we apologize for putting her on the block like that and remind her that we are by no means good at social interactions but are working on being at least somewhat competent at it... slow progress.Her Takoyaki wasn't half bad, and Kharn loves it as well and send her gratitude. we're not very good with spicy stuff though.
>>20425708>>20425781then >>20425809 when we get inside. A little more gruffly maybe.
>>20425684Probably far too late at this point, but what the hey.Frankly, you’re apt to say whatever’s on your mind at the time. You’ve never been certain what is, or is not, acceptable to say. You simply know that, sometimes you have questions you need answers to, and you’ll chase them down until you’re satisfied with what you get. And in doing so, you’ve left plenty of trodden emotions and wounded senses of pride in your wake, you’re sure of it.Probably broken plenty of hearts along the way, too.However, the fact remains – Irori is simply a principle, and trying to be her friend, let alone anything else, would only place her into further danger. Kharn, supposedly, is an old acquaintance, one whom your spotty memory has let slip from your mind. And as for Midori… You view her as a subordinate, as a co-worker, and you wouldn’t mind having another friend ‘in the business’ as it were. You did try to warn her about expecting anything resembling tact or grace from us. Our culinary skills – well, last time we attempted to make anything, it set the whole kitchen on fire.You mention the Takoyaki was very good, by the by, and Black Eyes Titty Monster Sempai will probably thank you in person later. Also, bear killing is totally an option at some point….
>>20425848Combined with making said apology while having her pinned down on bed...*sigh* stop giving me ideas, will ya?I'd say we are doing fine so far. Yeah, the bit with Midori right now was awkward/tactless, but the topic would have to be brought up sooner or later anyway, so better get it sorted out now...
>>20425809 >>20425742 >>20425515You bang at her door a few more times, asking her to open the door. You threaten that you'll kick it down if she doesn't - although, to be fair, you probably wouldn't. Not that you can't do it physically, you've kicked a few doors down in your time - just that this is your former partner's place of residence, and you're not one to flagrantly overstep your privileges as a guest by engaging in some wanton property damage.You let out a sigh and sit down on the floor, leaning with your back against the doorway. Wishing that you could smoke right now - or drink right now, at that. But no, you need to be sober for what you're about to say.You gather your thoughts for a few moments. Seriously, you've had it up to here with this sort of bullshit, but if you have to do it, you may as well do it right the first time, so it doesn't happen again.You talk to Midori from beyond her doorway. You tell her to listen and listen good, because you are not going to repeat yourself.You begin to talk about how you needed to know about how she worked her mission with Iori. Sure you could have asked in a much more delicate manner, but has she forgotten who you are? Is there anything delicate about you? You're not direct and blunt because you want to be an asshole - you just wanted answers to very important questions. [1/2]
>>20425684>bust in door>present palm outward>say one word: "gem.">apologize until she can't move anymore
>>20425954I am somehow unconvinced that 30 minutes of confusing tsundere hate not-makeup sex would help this situation any.
>>20425947Awwww. I was looking forward to apologising to Kharn about her door. Besides, she liked Murderface. We could get away with it. Though it wouldn't help the rumors about us and Midori any if it got out we knocked down a door to see her.
>>20425980It wouldn't help, no, but it'd be fun to watch.
>>20425954..Well, until now we only licked a soulgem. I wonder what happens if we chew on it in some kind of freaky soulgem-fellatio.
>>20425487Bro, how does that look crappy? It looks good!
>>20426016>chewing on the soulgemI think my dick just retreated into my pelvis imagining that. Thanks.
>>20426008I'd save the "fun to watch" actions for the moments where there is no immediate risk of causing major fuckup by doing so or urgent need for damage control over one we just did...Not like such moments happen much in this story, but hey, it makes them all the sweeter.
>>20426016>chewing>fallatioI didn't think I'd ever say this to someone on 4chan, butPlease, NEVER suck a dick. Just, don't do it.
>>20425947Questions that involve your job, you explain. Which, she should already know by now, is something that you take seriously. Very, very seriously. If she was hurt by that, well, you'll apologize for being tactless. But you are not going to apologize for doing your job.Another thing you'll apologize for, however, is asking her to make takoyaki for Kharn. You just wanted to do something nice for someone who obviously has been a big part of your life - and someone who you apparently simply forgot about. You also mention how Kharn enjoyed her food, and how she'd like more. Just a bit hotter with the sauce, next time. And yes, the Black Eyed Titty Monster will be thanking her personally.You wait for a response. There is none, and you let out a sigh as you pull yourself up from your seat.You tell Midori that you hope that this won't be an issue towards the both of you working together efficiently. She asked you to trust her, after all - the same courtesy should be offered. You may mess up in similar manners, but it's not like you're eating babies or something. In any case, she should probably get some sleep. You'll wake her up when it's time to kill some bears.You make to leave when you hear Midori's door unlocking, and slowly pulling open.[2/3]
>>20426016So many delicious soul gems to choose from... so little time.Ah Nom.
>>20426016>>20426034Probably not a good idea.
>>20425947>>20426053>Chiaki's handling of the situation.>mfw
Best case scenario: "You really suck at apologizing"Worst case scenario: She throws something at our soulgem.
>>20426073>horrifyingstop it you fucking mutant!
>>20426087No, best-case scenario would be "I understand and will take a more rational approach to assessing our relationship compatibility, and also not hold it against you if things don't or can't work out".But yours is the most likely we'll get. Stupid characters being all 3-dimensional and shit.
>>20426073Yeah, stop it. That doujin is bad and you should feel bad.
>>20426126Is it? Please link me so I may consider it for myself.

>>20426053>>20426053"That's the second time you've made me cry in eight hours, Matsuda-sempai," Midori murmurs, her eyes red and swollen from the crying. "But...g-geh, I'm the one who should be apologizing. I..." She sniffs as she glances back at the inside of her room, then back to you. "I ran off to cool down, a-and when I stepped inside, I just realized how...how much of an idiot I was, back there. Storming out on you like some sorta..." she shakes her head. "I should've known you were just trying to do your job like everyone expects you to, Sempai. It's what I'd ask if I was in your place." Midori lets out a sigh. "Y-yeah, you could have worded it different, but it's important. It was about something important. Lives-at-stake important. I should've known better than to act like that." She hangs her head down. "I'm sorry, sempai. I...I guess I'm still not used to the full Murderface experience in person." She manages to work up a sad, tired smile. A smile nonetheless. "I mean, when you hear about it from someone else, it's cool and all, but when it's happening to you...""...it is as pleasant as being in a house on fire." Kharn finishes as she comes from around the corner, bowl of rapidly-decreasing takoyaki in one flesh-metal hand, the other holding her fork like a surgical instrument. "Midori, Murderface here is...how we say...impaired in certain social aspects. Do not begrudge her of such an impairment. She does not mean to be abrasive, it is just who she is, and we should not force her to change for our benefit. Rather, we should allow her to change for herself." She pops another takoyaki into her mouth, quick as a snake, chewing and swallowing in three seconds flat. "My compliments, again. You are a master."[3/4]
>>20426149Just file search for it on sadpanda.

>>20426202Then give her 5 minutes to sort herself out and we can get around to bear hunting time!
>>20426191> run "madoka" through sadpanda searchThat alone brings up far too many results to be useful.Just sayin'.
>>20426202No no. Misaka gets head pats. Kharn gets back pats. Midori's reflected on her behaviour and apologised as appropriate. She's earned an awkward and highly uncomfortable Murderfacefirst Hug.
>>20426225"[AYANEro Taicho (Ayane)] Tomari ni Oideyo (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)"That's what you want to enter into the search, including quotes.
>>20426195>>20426216Seriously, you guys? Why do you do this to me. I almost fell of my chair laughing.
>>20426150That looks like the armour of an insane death cult.
>>20426260A "death by hugs" cult?
>>20426229We are doing a head pat.
>>20426265Well, yes.And they would probably view mutilation as a sacred act.
>>20426266>>20426229How about a hair ruffle? It's not a pat but it's still on the head.
>>20426266I'm voting for either a friendly nod, or an awkward hug. Misaka is best girl, head pats are for her only.
>>20426168Midori seems to color at this, and looks downward, still unable to face Kharn. "I-it's...it's just takoyaki...""When you are in Siberia, many miles away from home, you stop saying the word 'just' as a descriptor of objects you enjoyed. Trust me, these are magnificent." Kharn gives Midori a warm, full smile. "You must teach me how to make them, at the soonest possible time."Your subordinate blinks at this, blushing, and turns to you desperately for advice. Or was it permission?Either way, you nod at this...surprising, but otherwise not that unpleasant turn of events. At the very least, it didn't turn out like the fiasco you left back home, which you're not exactly looking forward to trying to resolve."Ah, very well then!" Kharn exults and suddenly pulls Midori out of her room, one skeletal-fingered hand around your subordinate's wrist. "Come, you must teach me everything! Murderface, I will borrow her for a while, yes? Also, go and take a nap of your own, you look like you are someone who died and forgot to lay down!"...Really, maybe you should. You tell her that you'll consider it, just as she pulls Midori to the kitchen, probably to trade recipes or something.You are much too sober for this shit.You step into the room that Midori had just been forcefully vacated from, kicking off your shoes and throwing off your sweater - and it's then that you let yourself fall face first into the soft, quilted mattress. Closing your eyes as you do so....It smells like Midori, which is not all that bad. You could smell a hint of...peppermint in her scent, somehow.For once, you dream of someone else as you drift off to sleep.
>>20426292We patted Kharn on the head a few minutes ago.As Midori said, we made her cry twice in 8h. I vote for the awkward hug.
I vote for awkward hug, if only because it seems like it's what Midori is expecting.
No, no, you guys have it all wrong. Midori can become the eventual recipient of our FIST BUMP.
>>20426289Really, the reason I suggested the hug is because, for one the head-pat is Misaka's thing, and for another Midori's less a 'litttle sister' and more a 'colleague who just managed to end her first majorly negative Full Murderface Experience with actual agreeable mutual apologies'. And she managed to resolve it WITH an apology to us faster than even Mami did.
>>20426307> you look like you are someone who died and forgot to lay down!"I guess Kharn forgot that this is how we always look.
>>20426319>Midori can become the eventual recipient of our FIST BUMP.Kyouko already has that privilege.
Processed fish snack time!We'll continue tomorrow, and the bear hunting scene should finally begin then.Thank you for participating! Feedback is always great!
>>20426307Why are we sleeping in Midori's room? We have our own right next to it.We are so gonna wake up with her in the bed.>>20426319Wouldn't Kyoko be more adequate for Fist Bumping?
>>20426307>we fell asleep in Midori's bedWaking up is going to be interesting.
>>20426259When I'm on 4chan, I'm on it to give and receive the D'aww, the lul's, and the Awesome.I only parcel out Huehuehue when appropriate.Anyway, sleep, and when Midori returns (assuming you wake up for that) give her a hug. A really, really awkward hug.
>>20426348>Wouldn't Kyoko be more adequate for Fist Bumping?This is a good point. Kyoko should get the fist bumps.
>>20426345Thank you for running the quest today, Deculture, you're the best!
>>20426345Thanks for the thread Deculture.
I am looking forward to next time.I like our new coat and boots as seen in the OP.Kharn is awesome.Hopefully Midori should be a bit more stable now.And enough feelings for now, we need to get back to action.That is my feedback.
Also, by request, Kharn in her pre-Murderface Magical Girl costume!
>>20426345Chiaki actually sort of fixed something within 1 thread! improvement!see you next time!
>>20426345Thanks for running another awesome quest thread, Deculture.Sorry about the Huehuehue last time. I couldn't help it.And I noticed on the twitter, that while the rape train has no brakes, apparently that doesn't stop people from hopping on.
>Sleeping in Midori's bed.Really Matsuda, really? You couldn't take the 30 seconds to go to your own room?Midori's going to getting all sorts of awkward mixed signals... Or she'll just take the opportunity to sleep with her sempai.
>>20426394OR, she goes into out room and touches ALL our things... maybe even inappropriately.
>>20426382The HUEHUEHUE is fine, I have no issue with it! And it was certainly very well written!And yes, people do hop on that train a lot!
>>20426345Huzzah! Your brilliant and engaging quest is over, leaving me free from it's enchantment to follow Chiaki's fine example and finally sleep...Thanks for running! Even if much time didn't pass we resolved some outstanding issues, ready to move forward.Onwards to bear huggi- HUNTING!
>>20426394>wake up in Midori's bed>Midori's in bed with us>murderface.jpg"Why are you in my bed, Midori?"

>Dreaming of someone else.>Not dreaming of Pinky.Deculture, you cad!Thank you as always for the thread! This makes slow mornings at work so much more tolerable.
Touchdown.The flight to SIberia was... uneventful. My thoughts occupied me most of the time, and the auto-pilot took care of most of the flying.My phone beeps. I check it, awaiting the orders of QB.“Fly them back when they are done. I will tell you when. Until then, wait on them. Coats are in the back. As is the new Warmaster’s belongings. You are free to do whatever you like.”It was as he said. A paid holiday. In Siberia. An easy enough job, anyway. Perhaps I really should look into bear hunting. It being an area specialty and all.I pick up the coats, the Warmaster’s belongings and head out to the cold.I smirk as I exit the plane. A job well-done. I’m dressed properly and the new Warmaster, apparently, is unhurt. Or in need of a toilet. Someone must have packed them dinner. Or they bought them at the airport. Though they need not have worried. Private jets usually cater their own food and it usually is a lot better than normal airline food. Then again, I’m used to eating MREs.I stroll up to my charges and hand them their items. And make the necessary small talk. So far, so good.I hear the whine of a helicopter. Their ride, I presume. I wish them well and inform them of my lodgings. And if there was anything else at hand. The helicopter was loud, but I thought I heard something.“No, that’s not all. I have something from you, from Tomoe Mami.”I’m struck with confusion. Why would the Warmaster want to give me something. This throws me off my guard long enough to-Ow. Something drives into my gut with a force I did not expect. I’m stunned, angry and mildly relieved I decided to have breakfast in town.Was it my flying? The plane not to her liking? Or was it something else? The Warmaster did say it was from some-Oh. I guess I did deserve it then.I hope she gets the letter.
Bear hunting will be much more satisfying knowing that we didn't self-destruct our social circle for once.
>>20426394Mild confusion is a symptom of alcohol withdrawal!
>>20426453As well as alcohol abuse. We just can't win, honestly.Also, nice thread.
So err... I don't suppose I could convince a drawfag to actually make the "Murderface experience" fairground ride?
>>20426242>>20426227Thanks. It wasn't that bad.
>>20426382Getting on the rape train is easy.It is stopping that is impossible.
