You are a Magical Girl, and you could feel yourself fading with every breath you take. Of course. You're...well, you're dead. You know that much. You've accepted that much, having seen what's left of you picked up and cradled protectively by a massive armor-plated monstrosity. It takes a strong person to deny what's in front of them, and you've never pretended to be anything but weak.But you have to be strong. At least for a few moments more.It's for your sempai, after all.
The fading thing is a bit disturbing, though, if you'll be honest. Not unpleasant, just...disturbing. It nagged at you, like a faint sense of danger. Or the gut instinct of having forgotten something so critically important but spiced with the frustration of the inability to remember.If you closed your eyes and held your breath, you could feel a tugging sensation at the edge of your consciousness, pulling you...somewhere. A cold, dark place, but one that you didn't seem to mind going. But for some reason, even when you tried to let go, tried to surrender to it - something snapped you back, your senses flaring, a luminous warmth suffusing you and driving the cold away. The same warmth that seemed to emanate from Madoka herself, the girl standing a few feet behind you in reverent silence. Looking on as you kneeled in the dirt, attending to a particular piece of your sempai that had given all she could and more, but was still found wanting.+ Midori +The armored fragment of your sempai's psyche, face down in the bloody dirt, is crying. Pulsing her words out to the darkness. Scarcely able to move but to breathe from all the brutally-spiked armor encasing her. + Midori, I'm sorry +. . .Pulse a reply.Ask for Madoka's help.
>>23178841Pulse a reply.
[x]Ask for Madoka's help.
>>23178864>Pulse a reply.So many mixed feelings about this session.+Still here. Not going anywhere.++Stand up, sempai.+
>>23178864This sounds pretty bad, huh?>>[X]Pulse a reply.
[x] pulse a reply
>>23178864we're not actually dead yet if our soul gem is still intact!
>>23178864>[x]Pulse a reply.+Hush Sempai. I'm here. You did all you could. Everything is going to be alright, I'll be there when you wake up+
>>23178864[x] Pulse her, taking care of Chiaki is still Midori's job.
>>23178864>Happy Valentine's Day, Midori [X]Pulse a reply.
>>23178966Speaking of Valentine's, here. A small thank you to everyone who participates in these threads.
>>23178988And to you for your artwork.Valentine MidorixChiaki art when? :D
>>23178988>i like the blush versionstill, great stuff.
No happy end?
You make your own happy end!
[X]Pulse a reply.Its alright. I just need the part of you. The part of you that will make everything whole again sempai. Will you give it too me?
>>23179010It doesn't seem likely unfortunately..... Curse you deculture!
>>23178998>>Valentine MidorixChiaki art when?While I really like Midori, Pinky is still my favorite so probably never! All joking aside, I didn't have time to prepare anything more complex and it might be a while before I can do anything else. If you want some Chiaki x Midori art that isn't just the usual silliness it might take me a few weeks.
>>23178864[x]Pulse a reply.+You did all you could, Sempai. More than I deserve.Time to rest.+
I'm guessing that we will have to watch all the good Homura's die before we can help them.Sad isn't it. Only one left now
>>23178864>Pulse a reply."Its alright, Sempai. You did well. It`s time to rest now. Don`t worry. I´m right beside you so you`re not alone."
>>23179114Its alright mate.I might get Dan to sketch the two in my NNN book
I was about to say it was tragic that Moemura didn't get to have us at her side when she passed, but then I remembered she was past Chiaki and only knew us for less than a day. Madoka was enough to take care of her, for sure.
>>23178841>>23178864Its time for healing writing again?Oh well, better get out the tissues...
>>23179286Nah. Whiskey.I will be drinking myself under today
>>23179286>>23179309home alone today so i can cry like a bitch all i want to!wait...
>>23179114Watermelon is always an option!Everyone will be happy!>i see in my mind eye madoka and midori kissing chiaki from both sides
[x]Pulse a reply.
>>23179332>not Pinky using Midori as a footrest while Chiaki snuggles her side
Midori can still get out of this alive in one way or another right guys?Right?
>>23179397Unlikely.Something about believing and such.which basically translates into no
>>23179397i'm hoping if we can keep her soul gem intact and pure we'll have at least have a chance.
>>23179397Everyone take a sip.Midori survives drinking game is now in effect.
>>23179397Well... Its Healing Writing so..
>>23179309>>23179443One shot of Midori ( a bright, green-coloured, muskmelon-flavored cordial made by Suntory).
Something tells me that in order for Midori to live to see her sempai recombine. Someone will have to die.Will you let Kharn die so Midori can live?What about Mirai?
>>23179593>KharnYes. Stupid bitch.
take her soul gem and implant it in someone, maybe our selves
>>23179593Kharn maybe, Mirai no.
>>23178877 >>23178895 >>23178960With what little you have left of yourself, you pulse a reply. You try to make it as loud and as clear as you can, but as soon as you formed the words in your mind, you realized that they would never come across louder than a whisper, one that could easily be dismissed as the wind, or a misheard auditory hallucination, or--You shake your head, and try anyway. The moment that you sent it across is the moment that a gasp leaves the bloodied frame of the armored fragment, a sharp intake of breath that made the jagged plates imprisoning it shift feebly. Another clanking of the plates, and you see this broken version of the girl you've fallen in love with turn her face towards you, eyes searching desperately but unseeing.+ Midori? Are you...are you here? I heard you, I... I know you're here, but I can't see you, where are you + Her mouth, too full of sharpened teeth to be able to facilitate language, opens and closes as if trying to speak a voiceless plea. + I want to see you before I go +You turn towards Madoka, and she nods, stepping forward. You feel her hand rest on your shoulder, her warmth adding to your own - and you see the fragment's eyes go wider still, unshed tears shaking free and rolling down her face as she finally sees you. A smile - a broken, scarred, twisted version of one - curls her lips. Her shoulder armor scrapes against the side of her cuirass as she tries to reach for you with a clawed hand, but she doesn't even manage to do so. A growl of frustration, and she glares at her limp, nerveless claw of a hand - before looking back at you with what looks like regret. And fear. And desperation all at once.+ I'm sorry for everything + She pulses, now weaker, but much more frantic. + I'm sorry I hurt you I didn't mean to hurt anyone +You hear Madoka choke back a sob, beside you. The hand on your shoulder tightening, shivering....Reply.Have Madoka give her peace. She doesn't need to suffer anymore.
>>23179658[x]ReplyYou don't have to be sorry, you did your best.
Reply."You did your best and thats all that matters. I love you. Rest now." Have Madoka give her peace. She doesn't need to suffer anymore.
>>23179658Reply.it's not your fault, you tried your best. It's not over yet, we can still make this right!before Madoka gives her peace, place a loving hand on her cheek and keep it there until it's done.
>>23179658Give her a smile, "There's nothing to be sorry about", then have Madoka give her peace. Still two to go.
>>23179658Reply;"It's okay, Sempai. You did your best and it's not your fault. I love you very much."Then hold her hand while Madoka gives her peace;_;
>>23179658[x]Reply.+It's okay. I forgive you. I think everyone does.+
>>23179658>[x]Replay"I know sempai, I know. Even if the whole world became your enemy. You will always be my sempai.">[x]Have Madoka give her peace. She doesn't need to suffer anymore.
[X]ReplyThere's no need to apologise Sempai. You saved us all. Now it is time to be whole again. Come with me.
Is there a colour ref of Midori floating around? I want to draw her.
>>23179658>Reply."It's alright, sempai. Come on, we've still got a job to do."
>>23179658Is a hug impossible?;_;
>>23179958This is the design I made for Midori's costume that Deculture ended up using.
>>23179958And this wasn't done by me, but another drawfag seems to have taken a liking to her costume, which really makes me happy that the design was well received.
>>23179997>>23180008Thanks! I'll be sure to put whatever I end up drawing in thread :3I can see why people like it, it's a great design.
is midori based off of anyone?
So where is a picture of midori doing a young ocelot poseYOU'RE PRETTY GOOD
>>23180038Someone Decu knows IRL, apparently.
>>23180109personality wise right? what about her design?
I hope people haven't forgotten that we have to use the bloody grief seeds.
>>23180136Madoka has them.
>>23180130Her looks were based off Sonozaki Shion from Higurashi. The costume is a mishmash of various inspirations.
>>23179593Kharn wanted to die, which she did in a hardcore battle against all odds. Mirai is already dead. If the choice comes up, the answer is yes. Chiaki needs a competent aide goddamnit.
>>23179593Cant let kharn die.But Mirai... If it comes to that.
[x] Use Madoka and Midori powers to lick the Homus.
>>23179958There's also some of her in civilian clothes. Still not decu art but the only one he did which was b&w had the same outfit so it seems to be canon too.
>>23179658[x]Tender reply. "It's not your fault.. And don't be sad, sempai. We'll see each other again." Midori has this covered, she's probably read enough sappy tragic manga.
>>23179671 >>23179673 >>23179732 >>23179831You pulse to her that...that she shouldn't sorry. She tried her best. It's more than you can ask for. More than anyone can ask for. She has nothing to be sorry about.Your own vision misting, you look down to see the armored fragment's scarred visage smile again, before her eyes slowly flutter close. Another sigh leaving her broken frame, making her jagged armor plating clank with a seeming finality.You pulse something to the fragment, again. Three words, three words that you've said to her before, in another lifetime. You hold your breath to wait for a reply, but there is none, only silence. Her hand twitches once, a mere spasm of the claws now uncurled and limp - and you carefully reach out and take it. Squeezing the now-cold fingers with your own.You murmur Madoka's name, and the girl sniffs loudly before taking her place beside you. Her gloved hands cupping empty air as she closed her eyes through her own tears."You've fought the longest and the hardest of all of us, haven't you, Homura-chan?" Madoka's final benediction to her is soft and fragile. "It's just like you to never give up, no matter how much you hurt, no matter how tired you are, no matter how lonely it gets. It's just like you to be so stubborn." She swallows back a sob, and the air between her cupped fingers seems to spark with a purple light. "Please, find...find whatever peace I can give you. You can rest now, Homura-chan."Another spark, bright enough to make you turn away - and the soul gem fragment manifests into reality, the blackened chunk of amethyst crackling with jagged energy. This piece fades from view with a diffusing amber light.Madoka straightens up, wiping her own eyes with the back of her glove. You follow suit a moment later, letting go of the fragment's hand. Wondering what to do from here.You doubt you could take much more of this.[1/2]
>>23180391"Just a little bit more, Midori," The pink-haired girl says, a tired smile on her face as she turns towards you. Turning away from the corpse that had long died but had kept fighting until it finally fell. "Two more, and everything'll be alright again."You nod silently at this, and turn back towards the battlefield. What had been indistinct shapes suddenly came into sharp focus, like a camera lens automatically adjusting to accommodate. The battle had been raging on even while you were talking to the broken fragment, but it felt so far away that it didn't seem concerning at the time.... Kharn was back on her feet. Bloodied and limping, her grin never looked more ghastly behind a mask of her own blood - the combined form of Gorechild and Gorefather grasped in her remaining hand. Side by side with the massive form of Tiny Pete - the hulking monstrosity wielding one golden hammer in one gauntlet and its original one on the other - they'd begun thinning the ranks of the shadows with brutal, inexorable efficiency. You turned away just as Kharn bisected a shadow at the waist with a swing, and the two halves crushed into a smear under the weight of an overhead hammer blow. An unexpected pair if there ever was one, and surprisingly effective. Of course, not that much of a surprise if you considered who was piloting the robot from within.Malal was still on her feet, a golden broadsword in her hand - the other supporting Mirai, who was limping herself. Both of them worked in tandem as well - when one blocked an incoming cut, the other would stab forward for a blow. The pair kept relatively close to Kharn and Tiny Pete, their eyes darting towards the center of the clearing, where......where Chiaki was feasting on the flesh of fallen angels.No. Not...not you, sempai.[2/3]
>>23180478ffffffffffffuck, this is bad.
>>23180478Aw shit here we go
>>23180478>Chiaki was feasting on the flesh of fallen angels.>No. Not...not you, sempai.That's not encouraging.But I still believe! I believe that through quick thinking, intellect, perseverance, and not being retarded, Midori can still come out of this alive with everyone. Maybe not whole, maybe in a body cast for a few months and eating through a straw, but alive and un-Witched.
>>23180478Chiaki wtf are you doing??
>>23180478I'm gonna need another bottle for this.
>>23180478>feasting on the flesh of fallen angelsFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU
Took long enough. Ask her how it tastes.
To be honest I don't blame her, with everyone dying around her. But why now..... Has pinky appeared?
>>23180478>>23180478Somehow, the fragment that most resembled your sempai had managed to take down the one with the wings of pure hatred. You have no idea how she could have done it, but...well, your sempai always had a way of surprising you. She always had a way of coming through, no matter the odds.But it seems that she's gone too far a bit, this time. At the center of the clearing, your sempai straddled what looked to be the corpse of the winged fragment. The golden wings, once majestic and blinding in their glory, now lay on the ground, bloodied and severed, the armored fragment's lance cannon stained with the same blood that gouted from their stumps. The shield on her arm a twisted, flame-blackened thing, the inner machinery exposed and unmoving. Speckled and coated with blood, brain and skull fragments as it is smashed into the corpse's face again and again and again. What had been a coldly beautiful face was now pulped into a crimson mask of pain and gore.You'd have been disturbed by the sound of flesh and bone being pulverised methodically, if it weren't for the fact that your sempai was laughing.Her eyes completely black, dripping bloody tears."No," Madoka's hand comes up to her mouth. "It's...it's not possible. Not here. It's not supposed to happen here..."You turn to the pink-haired girl, tearing yourself from the sight of Malal screaming at Chiaki, trying to make her snap out of it.. . .Stop this. Stop this, Madoka.How do I stop this? This isn't her. This shouldn't be her.
>>23180731>[x]Stop this. Stop this, Madoka.
>>23180731>[x]How do I stop this? This isn't her. This shouldn't be her.How.How?HOW?

>>23180731Angry Chiaki could hear us couldn't she?It stands to reason that Chiaki could as well.[x] Go..float? up to Sempai, wail on her to stop.+Sempai, stop! This isn't you! Please! Snap out of it, I'm begging you!+And if she can't hear us now, ask Madoka to make the connection for Midori to speak directly to her.
>>23180731>[x]How do I stop this? This isn't her. This shouldn't be her.Chiaki's only experience of godoka is her ripping out her heart, or at least attempting to. We have to be the ones to stop her. Yep, Faust has appeared

i love you Decu but i have an exam in 6 hours i just started studying for. why do u have the power to make me do this to myself?
>>23180859The problem is not with decu, its with you.Not studying till 6 hours before your exam? WHY.Cut off your internet, bro and CRAM. MGNQ archive will be waiting for you at the end of the day. It's want Midori would want. She wouldn't want you hurt like that over her. ;_;
So.. say your prayers and make your peace, the Witch of the Mortal World is here.[x] GRAB HER AND KISS HERIt has a chance of working. Better a long shot, that being forever frozen in time, trapped as an unchanging piece of statuary long past the the time stars go out and all things crumble into dust.And.. if it's the last thing we do.. we can go out without regret, at least.

Anyway, in other news. Magical Girl Noir Quest has appeared in the Tvtropes fanfic recommendations page. See for yourself!http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanficRecs/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaIts the last entry under the general fics tab
>>23180920So you say, but the forest ecologist will thank me later. They all do.
>>23180926This is not a good thing. No it isn't. Thankfully not many people will make the jump from there to here.>>23180918ENOUGH TO FLUNK OUT OF COLLEGE?MUST ALL THE FLESH BE EATEN?
>>23180926>http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanficRecs/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicais this good or bad? I'm leaning towards mildly bad.>feels good when a quest you've been following since day 1 is getting so much attention.
>>23180731[x]Screw this. We're a ghost, and we're connected to Chiaki's soul gem. WE HAVE TO GO DEEPER. Fly the fuck into her. We'll make her remember that giving into hate and the golden fury is the last thing we ever wanted her to do. Possess her and MAKE her remember, remember what we nearly died for.
>>23180943not until every last delicious morsel of angel flesh is consumed.>worshipping atpriceindeed Captcha, i worship Decu at a price.
Did one fragment just die? Did we mess up?
>>23180731[x]Hug her+ Please, sempai! You can stop this! +
>>23180983no. no she cant.
>>23180979It's worse.Chiaki's witching out.
>>23180963Generally speaking, stuff recommended by tvtropes is of the bad variety.
>>23180979Moemura died previously hugging our body. Madoka recovered her so I don't think it'll detract us too badly. They probably need to die for the process to continue, like what Madoka did to the Armoured Chiaki(I cannot get the image of a armoured macross valkyie Chiaki out of my head)>>23180970THEN HAVE YOUR ANGEL FLESHTHE EXAM WILL HAVE ITS POUND OVER YOUR HEART. WITH NARY A DROP OF BLOOD SPILLED.
>>23181011never used trope. what's so bad about it?
>>23181011like, 'my immortal' bad or twilight bad?>pardon me, i need something to compare with.
>>23181022TVTropes stated mission is to record tropes used by media; with TV first and and the rest following.Google dropped funding and the site owner convened a witchhunt to slaughter all pages with references to lolis, wiping out many man hours of work.Thats not even getting into the general culture of the site.
>>23181042so half of anime is gone then?
>>23181011Bitch I learned about Brick because of that site.
>>23181055The entire rance series: GONE.Most of Alicesoft: ALSO GONEVNs took a very very big hit, anime as well and at one point I believe the Inquistorial board attempted to delete Lolita, itself.As in the entry on the book, Lolita. Just think on that.
>>23181042Tvtropes are a good read from time to time but stopped liking them when I found out that the Horrible/fanfic page was dropped.
>>23181042>>23181079seriously? wow... I used to go there to hunt for fun stuff to read/play/watch
>>23181011TVTropes may be full of horrible anime spergs, but some of the recommendations have been pretty decent. Kind of like a serial killer that can still make pretty cool clay sculptures.
>>23181022For fanfics, they mostly recommend shipping, zomgsoawsum crossovers. Since you only need one recommendation to stay on the page, you don't really know if it's going to be a badly spelt mary sue fic or a literary masterpiece until you read it or there's a dozen giant warning signs that didn't get deleted.
thread seems a bit dead. did tvtropes kill everyone's Decu boner? on other news, im 40% thru my notes for the midterm
>>23181183Hes waiting for you to finish studying before he continues.
taking this opportunity to get dinner.
>>23181206thats another 4 hours.
>>23181240Sounds about right for Decu.
>>23181251good point. i bow to your wit.
>>23179010No happy endings.
>>23180926Goddammit, isn't everything going to hell in a handbasket bad enough?
>>23181285We MAKE our happy endings!We will create our own happiness, and we will all come out of this alive. Not because of any hot-blooded sense of entitlement, but because we worked for it.
NYAN NYAN NYAN
>>23181351>3 NYANSYOU HAD ONE JOB
>>23181358It's dangerous to post alone. Have this.
>>23181351Oh shit nigger what are you doing
>>23181372my seething rage expresses its gratitude
>>23180741 >>23180747 >>23180749 >>23180754"How...how do I stop this?" You ask Madoka. "This isn't her. This shouldn't be her.""N-no, no it isn't. I'm...I think she's trying to take control again, and Chiaki's letting her." Madoka shakes her head slowly, seemingly unable to tear herself away from the sight of Chiaki murdering her other self with undisguised, cackling relish. "I should--" she starts, but then stops as she turns towards you, grabbing both your hands. "No. No, the cycle stops here. If I stop her again, then...everything that's happened here will have been for nothing. Midori, you have to be the one to do it."You look at her face, the pink-haired girl's expression one of abject desperation, and you couldn't help but say yes. You'll do anything, just to get your sempai back."You'll be able to manifest there for a few moments. A minute, maybe less. I'll...I'll use up everything I have left to do so. Get her back. If she falls far enough, if she gets corrupted now, all of this won't matter."A bright amber light begins to fill your vision, blotting everything out in its purity, its warmth. Increasing in intensity until it's almost blinding, almost searing. You hear Madoka's final words ring in your ears just before an unearthly roar drowns out all other sound."I'm counting on you, Midori-chan."The light explodes, and then suddenly ceases. Bringing silence along with it.You open your eyes - and find yourself standing a few feet behind Chiaki. The scent of gunfire, blood and steel stinging your nostrils. The wind on your face, blowing through your hair, when earlier it was as windless as being inside a closed room."M-Midori...?" You hear Malal's vox-scarred voice rasp out from her shattered helm's voice modulator. She looks towards the bundle that Tiny Pete still carried - it was still there - before turning back to you, aghast. "N-no, it's not possible--"[1/2]
>>23181391You glance down at yourself, at your hands.You're glowing. With the same light that Madoka did. Filled with the same warmth that Madoka radiated with.+ Hurry up, Midori-chan. This isn't...going to last forever. +Madoka's voice, urging you on. Sounding pained, weak.Right. Right. No time to lose. You turn back to Chiaki, who still hasn't noticed your presence. She was now trying to decapitate her prey, using the edge of her shield to hack away at the exposed neck.What do you do?
>>23181401What do you do?[X] You use the not-so-secret weapon: MAXIMUM HUGS!
>>23181401[x] HUG HER and lie to her. That everything will be alright. It's ok. Sempai, please stop. You're hurting your hands.
>>23181401Hug from behind.
>>23181401>What do you do?Start by hugging the excited maniac from the back. Pleading to stop would be a good next step.
>>23181401Get your fucking hug on like never before girl. Tell her that everything will be ok but she needs to stop.
>>23181401when she lifts her shield above her head, grab it and stop her from moving, when she finally notices you, THE POWER OF HUGS COMPELS YOU!this isn't you, please don't fall any further! come back!
>>23181401Hug.Then:"I'm not letting go. Please, come back to us. Come back to me."
>>23181401Grab her hug her kiss herWe will not lose her. Not now. We have not come this far just to fail here.
>>23181401[x] hug from behind. It worked before. "Sempai, please stop, please come back. You're making a mess."
>>23181401"PLEASE COME BACK, SEMPAI! I LOVE YOU!"[X] HUG HER, YOU FOOL!
>>23181391Drained another botle.Why you do thsi to em deuc.

>>23181401Ah damn it. I suppose we can throw in a love confession. Now much else we can do.
Everyone going hugs: I can just see Decu's face. See pic.

>>23181401[X] Hug her, and then shove our tongue down her throat far enough to taste her stomach acids.No half-measures will do here! All in!
>>23181401sternly tell her to get her shit together.
>>23181517It's all decu's fault.
[X] Restraining hug."It's alright sempai, it's alright. Let's go home."
>>23181401slap her shit. hugs are for positive reinforcement after she stops going crazy. so slap her to snap her out of it, then hug to use hug magic

>>23181517Last time Green hugged her, she got cut up a little. There isn't much left of Green to sit.Is perfect plan.
>>23181401I'mma go with >>23181558Give her a good smack, before the inevitable cling.
[x] Sit beside her and grab her face; make her look at you.
[x] "This isn't doujin material, Senpai!"though seeing you murder a version of yourself that killed me makes me moist in my soul gem
>>23181579Thirding an attention-getting slap or smack.
>>23181558Yes.BRIGHT SLAP HER FIRST.
[x] hug from behind. It worked before. "Sempai, please stop, please come back. You're making a mess."
You slappers are gonna be so mad later.
>>23181646I am not sure if the huggers are going to be happy either.We can end up being bisected before we close the distance.
>>23181401Hug time."Please, Sempai. Stop. This isn't you. Come back."
>>23181646Man, don't try to start shit. There's no need for that.
>>23181646They aren't even winning you hugbox.
>>23181642Cuz she really hates to make a messre: her messy room and her frequently blood spattered uniform
>>23181651No happy ending
>>23181712use illusion magic to get close. although we might not have magic to use in our current state
>>23181699make her more hopeful dammit!>cool work dude.
[x]Grab from behind and hug.[x]Kiss cheek.[x]"I love you sempai."
>>23181699I love your drawings so much.
I dunno about which action to take, but the only thing we have to say is that this isn't what we wanted. Midori didn't get killed just to let Chiaki go off the deep end in despair. Fuck, she got pretty messed up preventing her from going too far once before. Remind her of that.We can't let Chiaki throw everything away now. If she wants to fix everything, she ought to start showing it rather than just throwing a Murderface tantrum because a friend died on her. It's not like she loved Midori more than that, anyway.
>>23181795i apologize with every fiber of my being.please have mercy on this one lonely anon.
>>23181827im here for u
Something tells me that Faust is going to show up. And we will have to distract her long enough for Godoka to put Chiaki back together.
>>23181795Dammit, its raining.
>>23181838that file name...
>>23181838Giant Naked Nono
>>23180943Some unsung hero got us removed from the TVTropes fic rec page.And there was much rejoicing.
Midori is so dead.
>>23181945Why's being on there bad, again?
>>23181999that was a given
>>23182019Because today's TVtropes is a cesspool of the worst kinds of people that has been reduced to a shadow of its former glory by the community's spergtastically excessive moralfaggotry and nofunallowed srsbzns attitude.
>>23181999As far as we know, her soul gem is okay. So long as Godoka doesn't magic her soul gem into nonexistence like she did to everyone in her world, Midori will survive in some form. At worst, she might end up another voice in Chiaki's head.>>23182019http://www.youtube.com/user/CrazyGoggsHere, educate yourself on why we don't want anyone from TV Tropes coming in here and ruining everything forever.
>>23182019Because they acknowledge that there is a Highlander II.
>>23182046>>23182062Come on, they aren't THAT ba->>23182068>they acknowledge that there is a Highlander II.Nuke em from orbit
>>23182068never watched it. how is there a second if there can only be one?
>>23182111Well, the funny thing is that they skipped to Highlander 3. Then there's all the movies based on the TV show.
>>23182046That makes sense, thank you.
>>23181453 >>23181426 >>23181430 >>23181558You move forward, forcing fear and hesitation out of you, even when you hear Mirai screaming your name in warning. In the moment that Chiaki raises her shield once more - no doubt to smash its bloodied edge down into the lifeless corpse she'd murdered - it's then that you grab it with both hands, pulling it up and back, preventing her from completing the motion. She doesn't seem to notice at all, still laughing as she continued to tug downwards - but her cackling fades as it finally sinks in a few moments later."What the--" She snarls, her voice twinned with another deeper, growling undertone, reminiscient of the armored fragment that had perished earlier. "Get your fucking hands off of me--""Sempai," you try, not letting go, instead pulling closer to her. Your fingers are sore and bleeding from where they'd been cut by the jagged edges of the warped, dented shield. "Sempai, please. This isn't you. Snap out of it. This has never been you. Please, don't--""SHE KILLED YOU!" Your sempai howls. "She killed the one person who cared about us! The one person who thought we were something worth rescuing!" She tries to pull free from you, but you hold on as hard as you could, not giving an inch no matter how painful it got. "Let me go, god dammit--""Sempai," You try again, fighting to keep her still, to keep her from trashing around. "Sempai, I know. I know you're upset, I know you're angry, but...this is personal. This is...this isn't the same as important." You ignore the pain in your forearms as Chiaki's nails dig into your skin, trying to break your hold. "It's important for everyone that you come back. It's important to me that you come back. So please, for fuck's sake PLEASE COME BACK!"Your last words leave you in a scream, one that echoes throughout the entire clearing - or even the entire barrier - and silence fills the void after. [1/2]
>>23182232A silence broken by the clang of a warped, broken, miserable shield being pulled off of an arm and dropped to the ground.This is followed by your sempai crying into her bloodied hands.You bury your face into her back, and with what little time you have left, you allow yourself to join her."I don't want to go back," she murmurs finally, between sobs. "Don't want to. Not anymore. I don't want to have anything to do with everything any longer."You shake your head at this. "N-no, sempai, you can't. It's..." You struggle for words you don't have. How do you plead for someone to go back and suffer more of this? It...it would be merciful, for sure, if things just stopped her for your sempai. Let...let someone else play Madoka's game. Let someone else--+ She's the only one, + Madoka whispers, her voice weaker than ever. + I...I know how painful and stupid and cruel this is, but Chiaki-san is the only Homura left. Only Homura-chan can undo what she did. Anyone else will be a slave to Faust and be bound by the Golden weapons. Please, Midori-chan, tell her--+Madoka's voice cuts out sharply, like a frequency suddenly taken off the air, and you feel the warmth in you fading. You look down at your hands, and see that you're...slowly fading from existence, as well."I don't want to do this anymore, Midori." Chiaki's voice is the weakest the most vulnerable you've ever heard it. "But...if you tell me to, I..."A purple Soul Gem suddenly sparks into existence on the ground beside you. You pick it up, and recognize it as Chiaki's own. It's whole, except for one single fragment that's not quite set in place, yet. A simple push would fit it flush with the entire thing, making it whole once more.What do you do?
>>23182238"You're the only one that can fix it, sempai. Just remember... I love you. Always have."Complete the gem.
[x]Just a little more, Senpai. I believe in you.Roll to bluff
>>23182238Offer to go along with her.
[x] Kiss that soul gem fixed.
>>23182238>Push button>Receive bacon>Enjoy baconFuck, I dunno what the correct thing to do is, but we're supposed to be putting Homura back together, and this seems a hell of a lot like putting her back together.I wonder if we're missing something that could save us, though.
>>23182238Tell her that we never asked her for anything.Ask her to grant that selfish wish of her kouhai.Ask her to carry on with this world. To fix everything.Tell her those three words.And smile
>>23182294Do this,She doesn't have to bear it alone. We will be with her to help her through it
>>23182238take her hands, put the gem inside them and then close ours around it to make it complete.then kiss her on the forehead/lips."you can do this sempai, i know you can and I'll be right there with you."
Okay, so we have two choices. There are three fragments in place, one remaining. We either complete Homu..or not. Thinking that we must find a way to have Midori live. They have their gems linked, maybe we can have Madoka transfer our consciousness into Homu's gem if ours is busted. Is it?Damnit Madoka, where are the goddamn grief seeds and where is our soul gem..
>>23182371Can't we fuse midori and chiaki together?
>>23182238"You don't have to do this alone. Let's go home, sempai, everyone's waiting, and lets get some pancakes."Complete the gem.
>>23182238I think >>23182280 says it pretty nicely.
>>23182371Since their gems are linked, wouldn't fixing one repair the other?We can't get anymore support from Madoka, it seems. Maybe we should look more closely at the Soulgem and fragment to make sure that its the right fragment. And yeah, we need those Grief seeds to either use as our own temporary Soul Gem or to soak away corruption.
>>23182238"You won't do it alone."Kiss her like you've never kissed anyone before and end this madness.
ALL THESE FEELS!I CAN'T HANDLE THEM![X] Continue bawling like a baby.
>>23182238This >>23182367 and this >>23182280We can't stick around, we are going to fade soon and Faust is probably screaming at Godoka right now.
>>23182462>grief seedsare duds. Madoka's wish that grief seeds aren't, so her presence means they're not working.(unless she's manipulating us through all of this, which is also possible)
>>23182232>>23182238"Sempai.. It`s never too late to do the right thing, you know. I know what it will be hard. But only you can prevent Magical Girls from around the world from suffering similiar fates. Only you can change their fate, Sempai. You are the only one who can stop Magical Girls from becoming witches ever again . You can do that because you are Madoka-san`s champion. It`s too late to save me or Mirai. But you can save, Sayaka, Kyoko and Mami-san and everyone else if you find the strength the defeat Faust and free Madoka-san."
>>23182560The world broke, bro. There's no reason they wouldn't work any way.
Anyone remembers why Madoka took Midori's soul gem?Theories on what happens if we don't complete the gem?
>>23182615used it as a proxy to let her godoka personality manifest without Faust interfering
Is it time?
>>23182780patience brother, have a snack.
[x]"You don't have to do this alone. Let's go home, sempai, everyone's waiting, and lets get some pancakes."Complete the gem.
>>23182238>>23182313This.We've become the Homura to Homura's Madoka, except we're the one that ended up dying.
>tfw MiracleMidoriXMurderMayumi will be never finished now and Megucas all around the world will fall into despair and turn into witches because of that
>>23182849Nah, we're Murderface's Madoka; unfucking her shit up at our own expense.mou ii'n da, Murderface-sempai.
Madokami wants HomuChiaki to move on and find a new lease on life. Sure she won't let it end like this, right? Right?
>>23182921This is the worstI don't want to live in this world anymore.
>>23182921>Midori ends up stuck in Chiaki's soul gem>Chiaki has to draw the manga now, with Midori's guidance>manga gets canceled after it becomes clear that the only new chapters are going to be scribbles with whiskey spilled on them
>>23182976She can always write light novels.
>>23182976Could just figure out how to not die, rules are less solid until we leave the witch territory
>>23182976>>23183019And she mentioned, at least to herself, that she's drawn something like 20 volumes, I think.
>>23183042think there's any way to use the link in Chiaki's gem to stabilize/recover out own? Could potentially kill two birds with one stone
>>23183042If our soul gem isn't fucked, then not dying will just be a matter of making sure it gets tucked away safely in Tiny Pete somewhere.
>>23183082>inb4 the stress from Madoka using it makes it shatterStill holding fingers crossed for this not happening and that Madoka will use those Grief seeds like she promised..
>>23183043>20 volumes of magical yuriEh. Gets boring more or less around the fourth volume unless more characters are introduced.And earlier even if it is just fap fuel.
>>23182280 >>23182839You bring both arms around Chiaki's own limp, shaking frame again, hugging her for all you're worth. Your hands closing around her Soul Gem - your thumb resting lightly upon that piece that just needs a gentle push to finally set into its proper place. For it to heal, to become whole once more.Smiling through your own tears, you lean in close. Putting every ounce of your will to speak levelly, comfortingly, to make the most convincing lie you would have ever told in your career as a Callidus. Before your time ran out."You don't have to do this alone, sempai. Let's go home." You give her a squeeze. "Everyone's waiting - and we'll get some pancakes on the way."A sniff from her, and a weak murmur of assent. "O-okay. Let's...let's go." Another sniff, and she turns back toward you, a small smile on her face.Someday, you will pay for that lie.But you won't be there when the universe comes to collect, at least."I love you, sempai." You murmur into her ear. "Always have. Please remember that."You press down hard on the piece--[1/2]
>>23183168Darkness. A different kind, one that doesn't seem to fade even when you've opened your eyes. You look around, and see that you're still kneeling, just like earlier, when you got Chiaki to snap out of it. Except she was gone. Everything - her, Tiny Pete, Kharn - the entire barrier was gone.A soft amber light glows from somewhere beside you, and you turn to see Madoka...back in her Magical Girl costume. Back in Faust's costume. Her eyes are still amber, but she seems relieved for the moment."Just in the nick of time," Madoka sighs, happy and yet clearly exhausted. "Thank...thank you, Midori. You've gotten Homura-cha--er, I mean, Chiaki-san to come back. I didn't really think a hug would work, but you just proved to me that it did."Yeah? Well, what did she use the first time, anyway?There's a moment of sheepish silence."I...I tore her heart out," Madoka hangs her head. "I-I was a bit panicking at the moment, and things were happening, and--"You shake your head as you stand up. You didn't need to hear it. What happens to everyone now?"O-oh. Well, um, the barrier should be collapsing any moment, so they'd be able to find themselves back in the real world soon enough. Intact and together, that's so we're clear. A-and yes, Chiaki-san will be her old self again. I used the two grief seeds you had to make sure of that!"You smile at this, and allow yourself to breathe. That's...well. That's good. That's what you were aiming for, and you achieved that. Nothing else should matter, then. You look around, before turning back to Madoka. Is...well, is this it, then? Your soul gem's done for?[2/3]
>>23183139could try to shift any stress through the link to chiaki's gem then shift from there into Walpurgisnacht, blow up that instead of either of us
>>23183176brace for conclusion!?
>>23183176Come on, shunt the pressure through the link into Chiaki's gem and into Walpurgisnacht since that's the thing that can handle the stress.
>>23183176"I'm...I'm afraid so," Madoka smiles guiltily as she holds out a severely-cracked crimson Soul Gem, the bauble looking so fragile that a mere breath may turn it into dust. "I...it was already compromised when I took it from you, and I'm afraid what we did earlier burned it out. It's just a matter of time..."Ah. Well. That's...well. At least you had a good run. At least you saved her."That's a brave way of looking at it, Midori," The pink-haired girl murmurs. "I'm...I wish I could be just as brave as you.""Oh, she is," A vox-corrupted voice, harsh and angry, blurts out in the darkness. Both of you turn at the direction of it - and it's there that you see Malal, the lines of her suit glowing a blinding crimson, her helm scuffed and scarred and dented but still remarkably in one piece. "Don't presume you can talk to someone like her so freely, Blessed Lady." The Culexus all but spits the word in a curse.M-Malal? But what was she doing here? Isn't she--"I am. I told you this already, didn't I? Pay attention." Her voice, taut with emotion, is nonetheless twisted into something dreadful by her helmet speakers. She turns back to Madoka, taking something from one of her suit's many pockets. "You're not taking this one with you. Not yet.""B-but Miss Malal--" Madoka tries. Even SHE called her Miss. Her words are cut off, though, by the Culexus throwing something at her, which she squeaks as she catches.It's...it's a Soul Gem. Bright amber in color. Recognizable. It's...it's familiar...No. No, that's..."Wakaba Mirai-san's...Soul Gem?" Madoka finishes for you, her eyes wide. "B-but...""Your pound of flesh, Blessed Lady," Malal all but sneers. "Now make with the sparkles and give the Warmaster back her aide. She needed her YESTERDAY."How do you react?
>>23183270give Malal a hug.
Ask her what will happen to Mirai.
>>23183270NONononononnonononoWE ARE SUPPOSED TO SAVE HERHERWE ARE NOT TAKING THISLET US SAVE MIRAIPLEASELet us save her
>>23183289And whether there are any chances of getting both Mirai and Midori out alive and well.
>>23183312No, you fool! Mirai is a suitable sacrifice. So long as we get to keep Miracle Midori, all will be right.
>>23183270God dammit Malal
>>23183270So Midori gets to be not dead in exchange for Mirai not getting to be not dead? Our current protagonist isn't going to be pleased with this, but I don't think Malal is going to let us play self-sacrificing savior forever.
>>23183270Does Mirai know she's alive? I got the impression that she thought herself dead.
>>23183270"I... uh buh... can I talk to miri one last time?... I..-I came here to save her, I want to be sure she won't regret it.... I want to be able to do what she wanted to do if we go through with this"
>>23183168>>23183176>>23183270...wat?Why did ...that was all a ruse? We helped Faust all along?WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?
>>23183270stay quiet we are way out of our depth
>>23183270what? so we are suppose to trade mirai to save ourselves?ask malal what this is all about.
>>23183270"No, wait, I came in here to help save Mirai, not to kill her. There must be another way, something else. "What about reinforcing my Soul Gem with the procedure that sempai went through?"If Midori's Soul Gem could be reinforced by making a secondary link to Walpurgisnacht, couldn't it be kept stable until QB can fix it?
>>23183270"So, I really had no chance of saving Mirai, did I? What happens to her? Is this what she really wants? "I'm even more curious about Malal now. Madokami had implied that they were friends, so I'm curious about the sudden animosity.
>>23183270do you want to put my soul in Mirai's gem?what will happen to her if we do this.>we know what the answer will be.do we get to talk to her before doing this?
>>23183370Will save this situation with one demon pact or another mark my words
>>23183312Chiaki doesn't need Mirai.She needs the midorinator
>>23183168>>23183176>>23183270Two words."Take Kharn."
So we're all in agreement that if only one can get out alive, then Mirai stays dead and Midori gets a reward of life for her badassness.After all, this is what Mirai would want.
>>23183270"Does… Does Mirai know? I… I had hoped to save her, too.">>23183357Nah, man. It's Madoka, but her time is running short.
>>23183408>Backstabbing the BackstabberMY DICK IS DIAMONDS!
>>23183347Yeah, she seemed pretty okay with not being alive. I'd say Mirai would be fine with this turn of events, sacrificing herself to save a friend rather than surviving and being held as a prisoner while still being linked to that faggot Juubey.
>>23183270Oh god, what game is Malal playing here? What position is she in to demand anything of Godoka?
This is all too easy. This can't be right. This is too cruel. I refuse trading anyone. I know that Mirai wants to sacrifice herself but we're giving up our first friend.We were fighting so she could live, she was not supposed to be our spare life.Goddamnit people, I want Midori with Chiaki as much as the next guy but this isn't fair. More unfair than our death.This isn't brave. This isn't brave at all
>>23183408IC? Do it.OOC? Fuck you.
>>23183408Anon, you devious little slime, I like it. Voting for this.
>>23183421>"Does… Does Mirai know? I… I had hoped to save her, too."This.
>>23183442I think this is less about "your life for mine" and more along "the available containers for souls". Kharn is alive with her gem by her side, I don't think it can be used here.
Enough with the self sacrifice.Have we not given enough? Mirai accepted her fate. Welcomed it, even. Maybe she knew this was how it would end, this was her plan all along, to save Midori?Turning down a gift like that would just be rude.
>>23183408This guy, holy shit.Now this is /tg/
Ah.... An unholy deal....................To be honest, Midori has got more of a future then Mirai.While Mirai was betrayed by her boss, unlike Midori she had a good relationship with the saints. She won't like having to fight her former friends, however the won't have the same problem as they will be controlled by their boss.
>So there was no hope of saving either of you? Does Mirai know it?>if it really is impossible to get you both back... I'm sorry, Miss Malal. I really tried.
>>23183452Damn, didn't think of that. If we come up with a way to save Mirai somehow, won't the cat be able to detonate her soul again the second we're out of the barrier?
>>23183408voting against it because that would be to easy a way out for her. She needs to talk to Souji.
>>23183270"I came here to save Sempai and Mirai. If I have to die for that, so be it."How do you accidentally someone's heart out?
>>23183408I'm all for third options, but I'm a bit out of the loop here; are we doing this for any reason beyond pissing off Malal?
Well, Midori probably would try to say no, just to save another person.But as a quest participant, killing Midori in exchange for some side-character is just silly. I vote we take the deal.
>>23183370>Bind Midori's Soul Gem to WalpurgisnachtNOPE, THIS COULDN'T POSSIBLE GO WRONG. NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST. BINDING YOUR SOUL GEM TO THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL WITCH IN EXISTANCE WON'T HAVE ANY REPERCUSSIONS AT ALL, RIGHT?
>>23183270[x] You're still smart enough to figure out what she's implying with that gem. And you're not cruel enough to sacrifice someone else, someone close to you, to save yourself, not without some serious protest.
>>23183408I don't even know how to feel about thisIS THIS RIGHT?IT IS A GOOD PAIN
"As I so stupidly said to a much superior enemy; FUCK YOU!"
>>23183509We like Mirai and Kharn is a crazy, dumb ork.Even Souji would be better without her
>>23183408If Souji wasn't in Tiny Pete, this would be the right answer.
>>23183509That and maybe holding a grudge for Kharn going slightly batshit on us in the barrier. But she ended up turning around anyway by the end, and apart from that she's been pretty great.I'd much rather take Mirai's soul gem than Kharn's.
What will happen to Mirai's gem if she comes back anyway? Wasn't her body cut to little pieces by kharn?
>>23183408No. Don't be stupid. Besides being a contaminated vessel already, Malal won't go for it and it wasted times. And Kharn needs to be made to face Souji and get married and turned into a housewife.
>>23183518Yeah, pretty much this. In character Midori wouldn't like this deal, but from the perspective of the overall story it'd be dumb not to take it.Midori needs to put up some protest, but ultimately get talked into it.
>>23183408Oh god, betraying the betrayerIt'd make enemies of Malal, Souji, possibly Misaka, probably Mirai.It'd be a despicable thing to do, especially after Kharn got back up and started fighting on our side again in the final hour.Why is it so tempting.
>>23183558doesn't matter, magical girls are liches.
>>23183520Not to mention Midori's already indirectly linked to Walpurgisnacht thanks to her bond with Chiaki.
>>23183502It's entirely possible that it could. Unless Madoka has enough miracles in her to sever Mirai's link with Juubey, which, as we've seen, requires a lot of effort. With this in mind, sacrificing herself for Midori would be a much better fate, even if we were able to replace her link to Juubey with QB and another girl (like, say, Chiaki, resulting in mutual despair due to both of them wanting Midori back).
Please don't let >>23183408 be an actual answer, even if it is possible. For fuck's sake, we didn't give her that lecture about throwing her life away just to throw her life away ourselves.We're not going to go merrily along with giving up Mirai, but let's be reasonable here.
>>23183539Kharn willingly betrayed us because she 'had to live up to her name before the end'Mirai was controlled into betraying us.Still, 'take Kharn' is one of the most retarded things ever, after 'lick the soulgem' and 'fuck you'.>>23183504Superhuman strength and panic, man. They do wonders.
>>23183408Let's not piss of Malal. After all, she is kind of the one saving us.
>>23183562Oh sure, let's play the moralfag so we would have clean conscience and hope for the GM to road us into the choice anyway
>>23183520Chiaki's Soul Gem is already bound to Walpurgisnacht as is Kharn's. It's a great corruption sink and we should consider it an option.
>>23183559>Besides being a contaminated vessel alreadyYeah, this is an important point. It's a miracle Kharn hasn't already witched out herself, I doubt her soul gem is in any condition to be able to handle switching owners.
>>23183354Voting for this >>23183270>[x] Accept but only if as Mirai knows and is ok with it.
>>23183408You glorious, evil bastard. Ironically, though.. If it actually worked, in terms of being pragmatic, Kharn is pretty much a hair's breadth from witching out, if she isn't in the process of it already, while Mirai was still in good shape, except for needing a new body grown. Hell, we may still lose Kharn regardless of what we do.Of course, this is all meta, since for the time being I'm not sure Midori would even think of this, let alone agree to it.
>>23183598>Chiaki>Kharn>Two people who are extremely prone to going full FoFAYou really aren't doing yourself any favours here.
>>23183615I am sligthly fucking upset that Kharn of all people is going to get the best end.
>>23183591Hey, don't knock the soulgem-licking, it's half the reason we're getting this whole arc in the first place.
>>23183408I wonder if Malal still has a soulgem somewhere....
>>23183595It's nothing so duplicitous, I'm just noting the conflict of interests between what Midori would do in-character and what would make for a good story.
>>23183573>Why is it so tempting.Because it's a retarded choice and /tg/ likes to make retarded choices on occasion.It pisses off everyone at us, and doesn't even put us in that great of a situation. If we're to get linked directly to Walpurgisnacht then we should have it done to our real Soul Gem instead of being shoved into one that already has such a link.
We gotta get the go ahead from Mirai to do this. If she isn't okay with it it'd be a huge dick move on Midori's part.
>>23183656At the time, it was the biggest in a long string of bad decisions that led us to the permanent loss of Iori. Leaving her with that dude was the cherry on top of the cake.And it's still not known if the benefits outweight the losses.
>>23183637What makes you think that? This is Puella World, and Kharn's been at the end of her rope forever given how she's been dancing drunkenly along and over/under the line between magical girl and witch. The only reason we haven't seen as many death flags for her is because Malal was busy stealing them all like a comedic 60's catburglar.
>>23183718It made for a decent character arc at least.
>>23183718never liked Iori
You guys really want to make Souji and by extension Misaka sad.
>>23183718>permanent loss of IoriIori had to be dropped. She was terrible
>>23183756and not even a meguca
>>23183752>SoujiYes.>MisakaDoubt It. Maybe a little
Sounds like we're basically concluding that "Give Kharn" is retarded.
>>23183718Personally, I think it's good that we shook Iori. Much as I personally love the girl, it would have been terrible for her to have such an association with Chiaki. She's a civvy, for starters, and we don't want to drag her any deeper into our shit than she already is. And the origins of her infatuation with Chiaki are not exactly the makings of a healthy relationship.Also, I'm not so sure she's permanently lost anyway. Certainly well on that track, but there were still some hints at possible reconciliation before we left for Siberia, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see her come back into the picture once we get back.
>>23183718>wanting an ordinary girl with a bright future to be in a relationship with a self-destructive lich whose job has a very high mortality rateTHAT had the potential to end up so much worse than this.
>>23183674Ironically, Kharn is the sort of person who would make retarded choices like that on a /tg/ quest.
>>23183788while i like the story implication of giving Kharn, she also needs a proper conclusion.
>>23183421>"Does… Does Mirai know? I… I had hoped to save her, too."i like this
>>23183792>Iori could be backNow I want Midori back even more
>One anon makes retarded suggestion>Thread explodes with people agreeing with itGo figure.
Could you even imagine Iori trying to deal with this shit? A freaking idol wouldn't want to go freeze her ass off in Siberia, she wouldn't stare down an army of bears, she wouldn't be able to face the kind of monsters we've seen in the barrier. Magical girls should keep civilians out of personal relationships.
>>23183408not this. we spent too much effort making sure that she didnt make too many fuckups in this barrier. we are not letting that go to waste
>>23183752>sad'Turn all guns on the station and Tiny Pete on us' sad.>>23183756She could've been saved with less than half the effort we made as Midori. But alas!>>23183792>I'm not so sure she's permanently lost anyway>left in a state of grief with an avid fan she already had some nice moments withNot versed in shoujo lore, I presume? This situation, while not typical, is not unheard of.And Chiaki right now doesn't even remember Iori, and nobody told her about her.
>>23183756Hey, I liked Iori. She made Chiaki consider the consequences of her actions a little better, instead of continuing in a self-destructive dive. The only other person to do that was Mami, and to a far less extent, Kyouko.
>>23183825Exactly. If we lose Midori, we'll lose the main barrier keeping Iori safely distant from the madness that is the Murderface Experience.
>>23183840The most retarded part of it all is that it makes absolutely no sense if Midori suggested it. Chiaki, maybe, but only if someone (like Midori) died and Kharn had a hand in it. Otherwise it's a full retard choice that doesn't even fit the character.
>>23183840Clearly you haven't been reading the replies; there are at least as many pointing out how bad an idea it is as there are agreeing, if not substantially more.
>>23183800>pantiesThat reminds me, I wonder how Nero's doing.
>>23183800Kharn really is /tg/. I suppose part of the reason some people hate her is because she's a mirror of themselves, and they don't like seeing the truth.
>>23183862>'Turn all guns on the station and Tiny Pete on us' sad.Technically, he has no chance of knowing It was our fault
>>23183910Calling it now that despite general protest, this will be the result we get.
>>23183913She makes them aware of their tongues.
>>23183913No, they just don't like her for going Chaotic Stupid and saying, "lol gotta live up to my betrayer name". People liked her before that point.
>>23183963I WISH I had that tongue! In my mouth
>>23183954That's retarded, Kharn isn't even there.
>>23183980in and around my everything
>>23183954The person who suggested it and the people that supported it should step on a Lego with a thumbtack put through it.
>>23183978Kind of stupid to assume it was just pure Chaotic Stupid rather than Faustian influence. Yeah, she did SAY she was living up to her title, but she's always been a bit of a jokester anyway, so I wouldn't take that at face-value.
>>23184010Point still stands, she was liked before her Face Heel Turn.
>>23184010She would've killed us all if we didn't give Midori titanium balls the size of Andromeda slapping some sense into her.
Woah, Kharn's popularity has sure taken a nosedive as of late. Personally, I think that trading for Kharn sounds a bit too evil for Midori. Also, I've kinda gotten to like Souji and wouldn't want to do that to him. Since the end is soon, please remember to fix the numbering and tag while archiving.
>>23184056>>23184032I still liked her after itHonestly if you didn't see it coming a mile off then something is wrong with you
>>23183978That's the point. She make stupid decisions just like they do, and they can't stand it when a stupid decision is made against them. They're fine with making stupid decisions themselves and leaving others to deal with the consequences, because "it's about having fun" or "it's for a better story" but they get angry if anyone else makes a stupid decision and they have to clean up the mess.
>>23184056/tg/ is an amorphous, fickle blob of instant gratification and bad ideas.
>>23184081reason still was retarded
>>23184056hadn't noticed the numbering went bad again, are we at 82?>wasn't my fault by the way>not that it really matters.
>>23184081Yeah, when you have a character nicknamed "The Betrayer" who's walking on the brink of witching out to begin with and then on top of that uses weapons that are known to have negative effects on one's sanity, it's to be expected that there will come a time when they turn on you, if only temporarily.
>>23184131#80 was numbered as 79, so there's two 79s
So did everyone forget Kharn's mind is not entirely her own for all of this?
Fuck Kharn. She'll probably be fine without Midori sacrificing herself, and if she isn't, no big loss.
Looks like we got a new item for that middle panel.
>>23184166so yeah, 82 for this archive then.i got this!
>>23183408 >>23183421No. No, she can't possibly be suggesting that. You came here to save Mirai, too! J-just like you came here to save your sempai! You're not going to allow this--"I don't remember asking you for your opinion, Hanegawa," Malal says, crossing her arms, the backlit lines of her suit pulsing in time with your heartbeat. "Pay attention, like I said. Now, once you get back, I want you to make sure Chiaki stops drinking like a fish and popping pills like candy. Ration her alcohol and put sugar pills in her painkiller bottles, that always works. And--"She stops, and turns towards you with an almost quiet menace. You blink at her, forgetting for a moment that you're supposed to be fuming - before she lets out a sharp bark of laughter."Take Kharn? That's what you were thinking, wasn't it?" The smile in her voice is obvious despite her helmet's vox stealing all warmth from it. "It's tempting. Very tempting. But no. Kharn answers to what she did and what she tried to do back there. You want her dead, that's very understandable given the circumstances, but that's letting her off easy. My way, she gets to live with her mistakes, to live the rest of her life with Souji and Misaka, knowing that it was because of her being an idiot that she almost didn't get to enjoy it. And she'll have to answer to you, and Murderface, and the rest. You want to punish a betrayer?" The Culexus shrugs. "Leave her to the people she betrayed. Much better all around, I think."[1/2]
>>23184245Man, I hope Mirai was on board with this.
>>23184245Yes, but--"But nothing." Malal shakes her head. "You think I'd propose something like this if she didn't want it to happen? She practically threatened me with that pig sticker of hers. Yes, she wants to, and yes, she's okay with it. You'll get to talk to her later, just before this all goes down." She looks to the side, where Madoka is busy holding Mirai's Soul Gem with both hands, tongue curled up and poking through her lips in concentrated effort. "Hey, Blessed Lady! What's the hold-up?!""I-I'm nearly done!" Madoka stutters, and Malal shakes her head. "As for me, this is probably the last time I'm going to see you, so..." She pauses here, somewhat awkwardly. "I suppose it's nice to see that the next Warmaster's in good hands, I guess. If I can do anything else for you, ask now and I'll do my best."She holds out her gloved hand to you to shake. After a moment, you do so.How do you respond?
>>23184262What would you prefer, a life where your only real friend is dead and you're held prisoner with your soul gem linked to a crazy alien cat that is more than willing to use YOU as a suicide bomb if someone upsets them, or a death where you don't have to deal with any of that shit and your friend survives?
>>23184276"I don't care if it's a longshot, tell me if there's any way to get Mirai back after this. ...And you, too."
>>23184276"Just who...or what...are you?"
"Don't go anywhere. I'll find a way to get you out."
>>23183863Same here. I think people just hated Iori because they assumed she'd be dumb and stuck-up forever, even though she might have some Noir-induced depth to her.
>>23184276Hug her. Say that you wish you'll make half as good aide as she did. And thank her for everything.Malal confirmed for Boss-tier.
>>23184276"No. Thank you. I'll- I'll do my best to make sure this works out. And, I will, Malal."
>>23184245You went with the retarded post that a large number of people said was retarded and were against, and ignored the posts that suggested possible solutions?Goddammit Decu, refresh more.
>>23184276Find a way to save Mirai....or at the very least leave her as connected to you as you are connected to Chiakimura.
>>23184276"Why was Faust so scared back in the school?"I think this is a pretty important plot point that we have forgotten.
>>23184276I'm glad that I got to meet you. Both versions, even.
>>23184326It probably had the majority when he started, and if Decu treats the votes as the character's thoughts, I could see Midori having a brief, hateful flash of "Take Kharn" being completely in character, even if she wouldn't act on it.
>>23184276CryI mean, shit.
>>23184304Actually, I quite like this one.
>>23184276Tell her this >>23183501
>>23184276"Who are you?"Who-who, who-who
>>23184276"You're sure there's no other way? Even if it takes a while, isn't there a way to get you and Mirai out?"
>>23184362This. He gave the suggestion a shout-out in a very in-character way, without actually making it a serious option. Which on the whole is a very fitting way to handle it, since even if the consensus was ultimately against it the considerable stir it caused was worth noting.
>>23184404it leads into a proper conclusion for Kharn while still acknowledging the option.
>>23184362In other words, posters acting like Kharn and being stupid.
>>23184276"c-can i see who it is underneath the helmet?"
>>23184245>>23184276[x] Hug."Don`t worry, Madoka-san. Chiaki and I will come back and save you. That`s a promise."
>>23184304i quite like this, and i have been wondering about it for a while. seems like an in character thing to ask>>23184321then see if this can be worked in>>23184343ok i forgot about that. this probably needs to be asked
>>23184276"Can I see your face?"
>>23184276Take care of yourself, the other one is trying so hard to remove you and I wouldn't want to see such an important person for Homura goneOh and keep Malal and Mirai company, they don't deserve to be lonely
>>23184276TEAR OFF HER HELMET
>>23184276"First tell Mirai thank you, and I'm sorry." "Is there any message you want to pass on to my sempai?"
>>23184457*Mirai and MadokaBrain farted
>>23184428Don't be so pessimistic. The readers are generally-->>23184458Nev' mind.
>>23184444Oh god, this
>>23184304This needs more votes.
>>23184456Scratch this >>23184472Changing vote to this >>23184276
>>23184276"Isn't there a way to save Mirai and you somehow? Maybe if there was a way to get an empty Soul Gem? And who are you, really?"
>>23184276If only for even a short moment, ask if you could see her face and/or hear her real voice. Something to consider as a passing of the torch. Since it'd be the last time after all.
>>23184444Don't tell me you don't know already
To Do list:>Get an Ushanka (one of those fuzzy hats) for Kyoko. >Cleverly substitute Alcohol and Painkillers with placebos. Proposal:When awakening from whatever state Midori is in, feign a dying state. Ask for last wish: lick soulgem. Watch Chiaki struggle between last wish and embarrassing public situation, then give her the biggest shit-eating grin that Midori can muster.
>>23184567>When awakening from whatever state Midori is in, feign a dying state. Ask for last wish: lick soulgem.This is bad and you should feel bad.
>>23184567What KyoukoDo we even have our memories back
>>23184567You are a terrible person.Also: YES.
"Just who...or what...are you?"
>>23184276"Is there anything you can tell me to help sempai?"
>>23184567I love it.
>stop drinking like a fish and taking pillsShe really took to the taste of water, and she doesn't remember the pills.>lick soulgem>embarrassing situationI don't think she remembers she shouldn't do this.
>>23184593Even if Chiaki doesn't, Midori can remember to do it. That's what an aide is for.
>>23184567Fuck you no. Since typing out well-reasoned responses only ensures that Decu doesn't see rebuttals to asinine shit like this until it's too late, I'll just respond with a "Fuck You".
>>23184716>>23184593Considering we're going through this effort to put Chiaki back together in a metaphorical mental sense, there's a good chance she's going to have her memory back when she wakes up. She might even remember more about what she forgot in her previous bouts of amnesia.
>>23184304You ask her if there's really no way of you saving her. Or Mirai. At this, she seems to scoff, but it's not with the usual venom that you've heard her respond with."No. There's not. Some things you can't fix no matter what you try. The only alternatives there are, really, is to make things a bit less terrible than they should be for everyone. That's what I'm trying to do now, from here, and what she's giving you a chance to do too." The Culexus gives your hand a squeeze. "Don't worry too much about her. From what I hear from our 'Blessed Lady', things are taken care of once you lose your soul gem. Something close to Heaven, but not quite. Whatever it is, I hope it has good 3G." She chuckles here.Yes. That's...that's good. You hope so, too.In any case, there is something you'd like to ask. If it's not too much, could she...?"...I don't normally do this for just anyone," Malal says after a few moments. "But what the hell. My suit's on full active just trying to get here, anyway, and we've only got a bit more time left." She reaches up to the back of her head and twists a heavily-ratcheted knob there, before undoing the pressure seals on her collar, each one coming free with a small hiss.She reaches up with both hands and pulls the helmet up and off of her head. She lowers the skulled headpiece, turning it around in her hands, a frown on her lips as she surveys the damage."Tch. I was hoping it wasn't this damaged..." She says mournfully, in a voice untouched by a vox speaker. Such a pure voice. Such a clean voice.You couldn't trust yourself to speak as you beheld the pink hair. And the pupils in her eyes.You glance at her, glance at Madoka, and then at her once again.How. What. ...How?WHY?![1/2]
>>23184567Feigning near-death is only funny in situations and among people where it isn't a great likelihood.Otherwise, it is, literally, the most dick move available at any point in time.
>>23184924>oh shit, OH SHITdon't forget to breath.
>>23184924You magnificent bastard.
>>23184924So...Madoka is apparently fragmented?
>>23184924Wow, Decu.The single person it didn't even occur to me to consider. Impressed state pending a satisfactory and coherent explanation.
>>23184924this whole time i thought that malal was this universes homura. but she is actually this universes madoka. i think
>>23184924So, this was Madoka's barrier all long? What?
>>23184924Oh jesus christ we just went full M Night Shyamalan up in this bitch.
>>23184924>Malal is this timeline's Madokawhydidwenotexpectthisjesus it makes PERFECT SENSE GODOKA ISN'T GODOKA OF THIS WORLD OF COURSE SHE COULD EXIST>>23184992Each timeline has a Madoka. Godoka doesn't exist in her world because she became a force of nature. The Godoka we see is an outsider from a different world, and Faust is the witch that split off from her at the end of the anime. Neither of them are from this timeline, meaning that this Madoka has absolutely nothing to do with any of them.
>>23184924YESI KNEW ITMAKES SENSE WITH THE PICTURE IN COOBIE'S OFFICE WE SAW FOREVER AGO
He did it. Decu pulled it off.He tricked the entire player base in one post.
>>23184992Plainly, this world's Madoka became a Culexis upon contracting, and took on the name Malal.
>>23185047Man, imagine if Malaldoka still had feelings for Homura.
10 out of fucking 10 Deculture.Well played.
>>23184924What the double fuck?
>>23184924>everyone`s faces when
>>23185023My feeling exactly
>>23184924Saw it coming.
>>23184924Oh my. She was right there with Kharn and Murderface all along.
>>23185079It's entirely possible that Malaldoka and this world's Homura were just normal schoolgirls together, but then Homura woke up one day as Homurambo and shit got crazy.
>>23185054Oh god, how many threads ago was that?There's no way he's been planning that far ahead.
>>23185054I don't remember the picture in Coobie's office! If this was an early clue, someone link it so I can be amazed.
>>23185138So far as I've seen, there's still no sign of a local-universe Homura.Then again, there was only ever a single local-universe Homura, so there may simply not be one.
>>23185138Now I want to know what Wish she made that made her like this....... and she actually, in a really roundabout way, just fulfilled Madoka's wish.
>>23185182There was a picture of Madoka among the various girls during our first visit to QB's office.
>>23185054>>23185182It was the pic that Kharn was staring at when she had the vision of the Blessed Lady.
>>23185079>>23185138Doesn`t make sense.In the Kharn flashback Malal`s first suggestion on what to do with Girl A after she "Accidentally, ...3 whole squards" was to kill her.If Malal really did knew her before that, this suggestion doesnt make any sense at all.
>>23184924Well.I certainly didn't see THAT coming.
>>23185186I doubt every timeline comes into existence when Homura wakes up in it. If the universe existed before that, then that means Homura existed before it, too, but as soon as Homurambo makes the jump to a new world, she takes over the body of the local Homura, erasing the local Homura's entire personality with her own. As a result, there can't be multiple Homuras in a timeline.>>23185214Presumably, post-Godoka Homura was completely fucking insane. Malal also suggested "Akemi Homura" as Murderface's name, which would imply that she knew her at some point.
>>23185214A simpler explanation is that Malal was this timeline's Madoka, and was simply contacted by godoka to act as her agent after Girl A was being apprenticed by Kharn. For whatever reasons.
>>23185189Well, if we assume that she had the same wish as Madokas was in the series, then she saved a cat. From this, we can assume that the wishes needed to become like she is something for the benefit of others, rather than the self.
>>23185186I am of the opinion that the anime Homura and this universe's Homura merged together a while ago.
>>23185280so one becomes a source of antimagic by making a selfless wish?That actually makes sense, given that having magical powers is a massive death flag in this universe
>>23184924I have no fucking words.
>>23185280But what does this say about Kyouko? Her wish has to be somewhat related to the Culexus-type in a roundabout fashion.This theory -does- fit. Kyouko's wish was not necessarily selfish, but it wasn't altruistic, either. She did benefit from her wish, but only indirectly.
>>23185319given how our officio has only 1 Culexus left, I'd say selfless wishes are a megadeath flag.
>>23184924Laugh, laugh maddeningly.
>>23184924Guys, guys.Malal is Nono.
>>23184924I knew it
>>23185360Perhaps that's why she can do the pulse?
>>23185376when are they not?
>>23184924"Technically, we're the same person, but not," The Culexus, sans-helmet, smiles cheerfully. "We don't have the same name, or grew up in the same household. Yet, here we are, somehow. Timelines are strange like that, I think." She glances over at Madoka, who is still doing something to the Soul Gem in her hands - the amber turning white - and she leans over to you, conspiratiorially. "Between the two of us? I've always hated the costume. Too frilly for my taste. And those heels? Who can run in those?"But...you always thought...but so, how did she know about all of--"Dreams," Malal explains, tapping her temple with a gloved finger. "Always got them ever since i was a kid. Not the sort you get from eating too much before bedtime, stuff like that - but really detailed ones. Dreamed of myself in that getup, and I thought to myself how silly it is. Fighting monsters in a DRESS? Yeah, no thanks. So when the mutant cat came to me with the contract, I knew what wish to make. How to make it, too." She smiles again, seemingly full of pride.But...but...how..."Oh, um. well, normally I just hold it in until we can get to the little girl's room," She says, looking down at her suit. "I know it looks like a lot of stuff, but you can actually take it off really quickly, and--"No! No, not that! It's just...well, that too, but you have so many questions now--"Some of them we probably won't even have time to get to. But stuff'll get answered soon. I left Kharn a package for Chiaki - don't leave Siberia without it. Everything there should help." It's then that Madoka calls you over. "Right, I think it's time for you to get back." Malal smiles again, before clamping her helm back down on her head. Concealing her features once more behind the cracked visor. "Try to stay alive, alright? I don't think I can intervene for the next one."You promise you'll try your best. [1/2]
>>23184924>[1/2]HE'S WAITING THIS LONG TO CONTINUE ON PURPOSE
>>23185385B-but if Malal's Nono, then where's L'alc?
>>23185415Now I feel robbed. Tomboy Madoka? Yes plz.
>>23185415She nods, and the both of you walk back to Madoka, who looks even more exhausted than she was earlier."R-right. It's...it's done. Here, Midori. I...it's a bit slipshod of me, but it should be alright." She hands over the Soul Gem to you, and you take it like the fragile gem that it is.It's your Soul Gem, that's for sure. The brass casing, however, is definitely Mirai's.You're...you're not sure how to thank her. Or Mirai."Say it properly, and don't cry while you're doing it." Malal suggests. "The both of you can cry all you want when this is done."Y-yes. Right. Um. Will your body be...?"--healed just enough to sustain life, yes, but you'll still be in a world of pain. I'll dull as much as I can for you, but things will still hurt." An awkward smile from Madoka. "...Thank you, Midori. I meant what I said. I wish I was as brave as you."Malal merely nods at this. "Any last words before I send you back, then?" Madoka asks.How do you respond?
>>23185436Double-hug and a quiet thank you. Maybe a "take care of each other" if we've the time.
>>23185436Try to keep fighting Faust as much as possible.I dont want to know what she could do if nothing of her conscience is left to hinder her.Malal: You are a 100% awesome person and I wish i could have met you before all this
>>23185436"I'm sorry I couldn't save you or Mirai...I promise to keep Chiaki-sempai safe...I already lost one life doing it, what's another?
[x] Hugs for everyone.
>>23185475We did just get chided not to get ourselves killed twice.
>>23185436"Chiaki and I will come for you. I promise."
>>23185432Shit, me too. Is it too late to change our vote to have Malal inhabit Mirai's gem instead?
>>23185402That's what I'm basing my requirements for a culexus wish on.Since Kyouko isn't exactly a Culexus, but still can do things that only a Culexus can, her wish must be indirectly related to the thing that makes one a Culexus.While the "Altruistic Wish" theory fits this, the "Save a Cat" wish doesn't really fit Malal. That doesn't render the theory invalid. Her wish might have been some -other- altruistic wish.Or she could have gone full-bore and simply wished to be the best Culexus there ever was. Sort of a cheating way to become a Culexus.
>>23185460This, this is all we need to say
>>23185436i will do my best to make sure Chiaki, Homura sempai will make it through and that we'll never forget what both Madoka and Malaldoka have done for us.hug them both.if Mirai is there, tell her that we're sorry we couldn't get her out and we're sorry that we couldn't be a better friend than she deserves.
>>23185471This."You guys keep fighting on this end. I'll get Chiaki to keep fighting on hers. We'll beat this thing!"Then pull a traditional magical girl pose.
>>23185436"I'll look after Sempai. I promise."Then hug them both.
>>23185436"Don't give up."
>>23185436"I'll take care of her. Water and sugar pills, right? ...Don't worry. We'll...we'll fix this. We won't let you down again."
>>2318543"Leave it to Miracle Midori", as awkwardly earnest as possible.
>>23184924I'm glad I stayed up despite being exhausted. Now I think I will go rest in peace.
>>23185436Hug them both. "I won't let you down. I've got a lot more questions; try to answer them please. "I'll put out a bowl of ramen for you."
>>23185536"To help Magical Girls in need"
>>23185685This this this!We've ascended beyond even our imaginary self-insert, so we are entitled to the name.She really is "Miracle Midori" now.
>>23185763>ramenThat reminds me, when we get a chance we need to go make Midoridad proud.
Guys, we have rescued our sempai, unwitched kharn, yadda yadda all well and good.PROBLEM: The Anime Adaptation
>>23185685Switching over to this.
>>23185845There's also some inconsistencies in Midori's story of how she became contracted by Jyubey. Although that was given under duress, so that's pretty understandable.After all that Midori has done for Chiaki in here, I think that Chiaki would let it slide.
>>23185685Have to agree with this, actually.
>>23185685yes. we have been using that as a crutch to get us through this whole ordeal. now we actually deserve the title.
No saying goodbye to Mirai?
>>23185930She said we'd have a chance after this.
>>23185845Pfft, that's no problem at all. If it's 26 episodes, use the first half to set up the characters and relationships, and have the final arc be loosely based on true events with Murder Mayumi going nuts and Magical Midori going through hell to save her, ending with Murder Mayumi finally admitting that she loves Magical Midori.Have it sync up with the manga version of that arc, like what happened with the second FMA anime, so that both can end at the same time without anything being spoiled. Keep the fans guessing all the way to the end.
>>23185460 >>23185544 >>2318559 >>23185613No last words. Not right then, at least. Instead, you walk forward and hug them, each in turn. Despite...well, despite being the same person, technically, the contrast between them couldn't be stronger: Malal seemed to welcome the physical contact, even slapping you hard on the back while you did so. Madoka on the other hand stiffened slightly as your arms went around her, but she relaxed soon after and returned it as well. You then stepped back to look at both of them, and with tears in your eyes, you bowed. Thanking them, and promising that you'll take care of your sempai the best way you can. Leave it to Miracle Midori!"I know you will." Malal's vox-corrupted voice is strange to hear after you've heard her without it. "It's why I can take it easy knowing you're on the job." "Chiaki-san is in safe hands with you, Midori," Madoka agrees, clasping her hands together - and it's then that the amber light from earlier starts to flood your vision yet again. Both Culexus and Goddess wave at you. "Please, take care...!"You try to wave back, but the light forces you to turn away, right as the howling wind resumes again.The light dies immediately afterward, but the wind does not. You open your eyes - finding it a complete ordeal to - and look up to see the unnatural sky of the barrier. Unnatural, but...clear, now. As if illuminated by some hidden sun. Not a cloud in sight.You're lying on the ground, but it's a soft, grassy ground. Your head, too, is resting on something very soft, and very warm....You look up, craning your neck. It's then that you spot a familiar face looking down at you....Mirai?"Hello, Midori." The girl smiles. "We have a few moments to ourselves, for now. The barrier's going to break soon enough, and all this will disappear." She pauses. "Thank you for...not refusing my gift. It is all I can give for now."How do you respond?
>>23186089"Is there anything I can do for you?"
>>23186089Hug her. Cry. Thank her and apologize.
>>23186089Time for a tearful half apology half thank you.
>>23186089Hold up two fingers sideways and separated to indicate>Refusing Malal's commands
>>23186089>Hug>Try not to cry>Cry a lot
>>23186089Thank her. Don't cry. Just smile at her, and thank her. And apologize, for...everything.
>>23186089Scope out heaven for me will ya? I dont want to hit the cheap ramen when I get up there
>>23186089"it was more than I could have asked for. Thank you. I- I'll miss you."Hug tiem. Then kiss her. With tongue.
>>23186089You were- no you ARE my best friend, Mirai.I will rescue you, this I swear.Goodbye for now, my friend. I'll see you again.(hug)
>>23186154Don't cry. Malal asked us not to, and we will have plenty of time to cry later.>>23186089Thank her, tell her we'll miss her, and give her a hug as best we can.
>>23186182[x] Lick shared Soul Gem
>>23186089I'm sorry i couldn't be a better friend.>severely weakened, we cannot stop the tears
>>23186089"Why? This wasn`t your fault. It was that little spacerat! Why did you do this? I could have saved you too, Mirai!"
Think I'm at my limit, now D: I'll start another thread tonight to wrap things up! Your participation and feedback are always appreciated!Questions answered before I sleep!
>>23186197She may have asked us not to, but that's a tall order to fight off emotions in a situation like this.
>>23186089"You're my best friend, Mirai. And when the chips were down, when it really mattered, I couldn't save you. I'm sorry. "And thank you, for being there for me. "I'll try to find some way to bring you back, I promise. Is there anything you want me to do for you until then?"And hug her.
>>23186322How long have you planned out Maladoka's identity?
>>23186322Thank you Deculture for another thread.A short piece written the other day, for your viewing pleasure: | Sunset | - http://sharetext.org/rL0K
>>23186322Did you plan for Malal to be Madoka this whole time?
>>23186322How long was Malal/doka planned?
>>23186322Was Midori ever headed towards a Bad End or was she always safe?Also, was Malal always Madoka or was that a last second twist?ALSO; you rock <3
>>23186365I remember him saying we surprised him by siding with Pinky and cooperating with her. That probably was a game-changer.
>>23186322i never saw it coming, it is a real joy to participate in these quests.
>>23186322What was the way to save Mirai? Did charging at the last Homura seal her fate, or was it already too late when we decided to go for a complete Homura?
>>23186322>I'll start another thread tonightUntil next week then!
>>23186353>>23186357>>23186358>>23186365I've actually planned this for quite a while, yes! I thought it'd be neat to put a twist to the fearful character that the original Madoka was and turn it on its head. Malal was made!>>23186365Some things would have given her a bad end, yes! And like I said, it's always in the players' hands!Haha, thanks :D
>>23186430So was the assumption that Malal was this universe's Homura something we made out of wholecloth or were you dropping red herrings on us there as well?
>>23186387This. Not having a goddess on our side would have probably meant a bloodier outcome.
>>23186322HAHA time to archive! I've checked everything at least 3 times but please tell me if you find an error in the archive!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questhope you guys like the description, it's been a real pleasure!
>>23186393It was sealed pretty much with what happened to Midori, yes, but things were well on their way then. >>23186415I'm serious! D: I'll start a thread tonight, a-and finish it so that next week is a new arc and stuff...!!
>>23186483To everyone that supported "Get Fucked" instead of an actual plan, thanks for getting Mirai killed.
>>23186483Thanks for the thread Decu. 'til next week then.>>23186472Thanks for your work as well.
>>23186464I don't get the former, but I suppose it's the latter! I saw everyone thinking about how Malal is this universe's Homura, and I wanted to play around a little bit D:Rest assured that this universe's Homura is still around, somewhere!
>>23186483Oh do be serious.
>>23186483a little disappointed that I didn't bother to vote against it now but with what Malaldoka said about there being a sort of afterlife, I guess it's not all bad.it could have been a lot worse at least!
>>23186566"Made out of wholecloth" is an expression meaning to basically make something up out of nowhere, if that's what you're confused about.Also....crap. Don't tell me...this universe's Homura.........WORKS FOR 765 PRODUCTIONS?! *brick'd*
>>23186642Isn't it woolcloth? Like pulling the wool over someone's eyes?
>>23186700No, whole cloth. It means made from scratch - the term has its origins in clothes being made from cloth directly from the bolt - cloth which is still 'whole', having not been cut yet.
>>23186566>Rest assured that this universe's Homura is still around, somewhere!TIME FOR HOMUSEX!
>>23186797Could this world's Homura be the one that Mami is seeing?
>>23186566Perhaps the Head Maid over at the Lovelace residence? Fabiola *did* mention that Chiaki looked almost exactly like the Head Maid did. Even Midori noted that Chiaki wore it well.
>>23186848>Mami NTRing us with ourselfOh god what.
Deculture, I would just like to say thank you. We had little faith but it happened. We believed. And Midori lived.
>>23186852>Homura is now Roberta the BloodhoundI can't deal with this.
>>23186993some of us did anyway.
>>23186993There is not often a chance to post this, but it may fit.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCteJY1-Zkk&feature=slpl
Mirai needs hugs and kisses.
>>23187158Nah, just a good Descartes. Both of them actually.
>>23187193Is there time before the field collapses?
>>23187260>Midori>not saving herself for Murderface
>>23187307> saving herself for MurderfaceBut she had a boyfriend already.. Also I think we have to note something very important down. Once we`re in charge of Chiaki again if Midori brings up her feelings for us again or tries to initiate a kiss or something we have to troll her by: "B-But thats forbidden love. " ~Blush slightly~
>>23187415>Trolling Midori after all of thisI like your style.
>>23187415I don't think that would discourage Midori any. If anything, the Moemura-esque behavior may have the opposite effect.
>>23187415>Attempting to achieve negative values for "Fucks Given"
