You are a Magical Girl, and you've somehow fallen asleep on top of your Incubator's desk.You're not sure how exactly you fell asleep, or when. But you did, somehow. Further proof of that - if you needed any more convincing - was the sticky way your cheek peeled off from the surface of the plasteel desk as you lifted your head up, having adhered there by a puddle of drool....You still find ways to embarass yourself, even know. You're supposed to be the new Warmaster now, for fuck's sake.If there's any consolation, you didn't do yourself the indignity of falling asleep face first in your empty plate of pancakes. You moved it out of the way before you got knocked out, it looks like. At least you didn't smash your face into the bouquet of blue flowers beside it, either--...Wait. You left the bouquet on the floor, after you dropped them from Mami hugging you.How the hell did--
>>24237412"Ah, Matsuda. You're awake, finally." You haven't heard this voice in a while, but the way it sidesteps your own thoughts to be heard in your mind is as annoying as ever. "I was beginning to think you'd be spending the night here in my office. Personally, I wouldn't mind, but it seems such a waste for the new apartment I've furnished for you."You look around for any sign of the furry little bastard in the wide, spacious office, one hand reaching up to surreptitiously wipe away the crusted drool on the corner of your lips. It's then that you see it - a rather well-maintained cat tower, at the very corner of the office, cleverly positioned in an unlit area. You don't make any move to go toward it, but you're pretty sure you could see a pair of crimson eyes twinkling your way from inside one of the cat tower's 'rooms'."No need to get up, Matsuda. I'm just trying to unwind at the moment. Stressful meeting." And for some reason, you believe him - the usually cool, collected voice has a bit of a strained note to it, a jittery tone. "Welcome back, in any case. I trust Siberia's been a productive vacation, all in all?"How do you respond?
>>24237417"Why do you care?"
Sage for terrible quest thread.
>>24237417"I feel more...whole. "By the way, the Tenth said that you were in trouble with the others. Is it true?"
>>24237412You're a terrible person, you know. I spent the better part of an hour just refreshing /tg/ before you started.>>24237417You know already, so why ask me.
>>24237417Did Midori confiscate all our cigarettes already? If not light one up."It was more work than vacation."Then ask if we missed anything important while we were out.
>>24237417"I've had better, and what did you just say about a new apartment?
>>24237417Stroke Kyubeys tail.
>>24237417"I feel stronger"
>>24237465Remember that we asked for a new apartment way back during the Iori assignment for various reasons. I guess Coobie finally came through on that, even if late.Also, hahaha, cat tower!
MGNQ starts just after F/SA ends? This is a great day.
>>24237417"Aside from the whole 'attacked by satan bears, going insane with a sword and stabbing my Callidus, having another Incubator detonate his magical girl's soul gem in face, getting my soul split into 4 separate parts, having one of those parts want to murder the other three, dealing with Kharn the Betrayer living up to her title, and getting perved on by that fucking siscon science freak, sure.By the way, I want to murder Jyuubey. Tell me that this is a thing that I am allowed to do now."
>>24237452>>24237476Those 2 seem good for now. Don't forget to ask about what they talked in the meeting and if it had anything to do with the 3rd incubator.
>>24237510Don't forget to ask about Midori
>>24237504This is pretty good too.
>>24237417Be nice to QB. And new apartment?
>>24237540We asked for a new apartment back when we were a bodyguard for Iori.
>>24237481Yeah I do remember that part, just don't know if he said we'll get it or something like that.It's staring into my soul.
>>24237417We've got glowing red eyes now too. Just stare at the little bastard for a while, and then add "More than you know."
I wanr to give kyuubey a pet/rub.Seems like warmasters of the 9th tend to do that.
>>24237504This, in complete deadpan.
>>24237417Why is QB such a cool personcatthing in this universe?It has no right to be such a cool guy.
>>24237504This sounds good
>>24237576Because it has been fed Mumi's pancakes.
>>24237576I'm beginning to think that doing business might be some sort of drug to their race or something.I mean, Sanbey was all like "Fuck entropy. Money is more fun."
>>24237504To be honest though, we didn't deal with Kharn, Midori did. And Souji is not a siscon, and he hardly perved on us. Judging by his girlfriend (now probably his fiancée) we're nowhere near his type. And I think it's more important that we find out who's on the outs with the other Incubators, Kyuubey or Jyuubey. That will determine if we're going to be attacked or if we're going on the attack.
>>24237600That is really a reasonable way to explain itCoobie just balances business with entropy>>24237576To test our hatred
>>24237606>To be honest though, we didn't deal with Kharn, Midori did.Midorin belongs us, so do her accomplishments.Also, made it for the quest. Fuck yeah.
>>24237626>Midorin belongs us, so do her accomplishments.So we are the author of her self insert manga now?
>>24237639By proxy, yes.
Anyone remembers what happened with the chair? The super comfy one from the hotel. If we still have it we need it moved to the new apartment.
>>24237639Speaking of which, we need her to sign our copy.The girl at the shop did say that signing events were rare. Yuma will squeal.
>>24237658Oh, damn, I forgot about The Chair. Definitely in the top-five priorities.
>>24237664>>24237658I expect it got shifted over as well.
>>24237658Also gun racks.
>>24237664Or Coobie just ordered a few new ones
>>24237702That is completely unacceptable. No other chair can replace The Chair.
>>24237504 >>24237465 >>24237452Kyuubey seems to blink from inside his hideaway, before poking his head out in that madly-curious way that all felines seem to have. "As usual, Matsuda, your powers of summarization never fail to surprise me. Yes, I suppose your stay in Siberia was much too eventful to be called a vacation, but despite this, you seem to have turned out perfectly alright from it. Looking much more intact and put-together, if I may say so."He shrinks back inside the hidey-hole. "As for my brother, well, we'll discuss that in a later time. Yes, I do realize that retaliation is something that should be expected of us, in this line of work - and what happened does offer some degree of justification to the entire thing - but we will go about it professionally and properly, as I've always strived for this Officio." A moment. "Which, of course, had often fallen on the wayside due to Kharn's tenure as Warmaster, but I have high hopes for you, at least, Matsuda. I look forward to having a Warmaster who's not that eager to call a full mobilization simply because of an easily-forgivable misunderstanding."Another moment."...I realize the irony of making that assumption a moment after I remembered your incident with the Third." Kyuubey lets out a sigh. "The meeting must have affected me more than I thought. Although, I suppose, teleportation to the Lunar Base always does that. I could never get used to it."The Incubator clears his throat, here - or at least, makes a sound approximating one, seeing as he doesn't really need to do so. "And yes, your new apartment. You were quite adamant on being supplied a new one, after what happened with Kure's retirement." A small metal card, the size of a credit card, shimmers into existence on top of the desk, briefly outlined in crimson light. [1/2]
>>24237417There is only one answer to that and you guys know it: "Where is Midori?"
>>24237800"Mitakihara Heights Tower One, Sixth Floor, Condominium Unit 665. Upper City District, and I made sure that certain establishments are well within reach. As always, the Warmaster Suite in this building is also available for your pleasure, although you'll have to clean it out first. I don't think it's been touched since Kharn left it." A small chuckle. "Her underwear collection should still be there, along with her rather macabre throne. You're free to have some of the girls help you in this endeavor if you wish."How do you respond?
>>24237816"And my aide?"
>>24237816Thank him for it.He'll never see it coming.Also tell him what his fake counterpart said. About running a ramen store as a hobby.
>>24237826>>24237822Seconding both of these.
>>24237816Pack the underwear collection and send it to Siberia.
>>24237826>>24237822Yes. Also I'm impressed that QB knows of Kharn's underwear collection. She wasn't discreet with her trophies, was she..
Well, so much for reviewing for my Finals. Totally worth it though.>>24237836Thirding along with:>>24237836I recall that we haven't officially picked our Aide. Consensus on who the lucky girl will be?
I want to be the little girl
>>24237840>Kharn>discreetyou can't put these words together and still make sense.she really wasn't.
>>24237865I'll give you a tip. The 'lucky' girl has green hair.
>>24237816"Six six... five? Really?Thanks. Anything else?">>24237865Kyoko. Midorin will take all the 'keep Murderface presentable' tasks and the red one can focus on the actual work and being our right hand.
Theres the elephant we have yet to touch.Should we tell Kyuubey about the warning?With his attachment to Mami, he might not hesitate to order a hit on Misaka.
>>24237816[x]*Eyebrow twitch* "Have someone ship Kharn's belongings to her, and then have a cleaning crew run through the suite. Twice."
>>24237892We promised kyoko we'll speak to Sayaka first.
>>24237840>She wasn't discreet with her trophies, was she..I wouldn't be surprised if she started wearing a different trophy panty on her head until Malal scolded her.
>>24237894I think we should.The prophet could be referring to fucking anybody, and the warning itself could be fake or self-fulfilling.
>>24237900This. Without the eyebrow twitch. Also, we still need to talk to Sayaka. Personally, I think if Sayaka has any misgivings at all, we should give Kyouko a pass and go with Midori. Sayaka's going to be our rank leader for the Eversors so I'd rather not get into a leadership fight at the start of our tenure as Warmaster.
>>24237914She probably wore them as sleeping masks.
Send it to Siberia and post it as throphy of war. Also let's see what poor magical girls were part of this collection as possible leverage for later.
>>24237914I'd think she put them on display with the dates and durations of her conquests written on cards next to them.
>>24237816"*easily-forgivable misunderstanding*, my ass. He turned a Magical Girl, one of his OWN Magical Girls no less into a Witch via button-pressing. The Question that now goes through my mind, is every Incubator able to that and if so, what would happen to the Officios Worldwide and their Population of Magical Girls if word got out that not only do the Incubators fuck you over with your wish, no they also can end the contract on their side whenever they grow tired of you. What do YOU think would happen, Kyubey?Yeah, yeah, I get it, the hole heat-death of the Universe-part, the Sacrifice of the few for the many and what not, I also get that most Incubator don`t tell us that were part of the harvest not the witches. But turning your own contractees into witches via Self-Destruction-Button is completly and utterly unacceptable and if one of you furry little abominations decides to do that again, I WILL find a way to kill all you little mongrels and I WILL kill you all, even if I have to sell my soul to that pink-haired black-eyed monstrosity."We should be MAD now. Mad with Righteous Fury.
Sell the panty collection on eBay.
>>24237903Weren't we also going to promote Sayaka to lead Eversor or whatever?
>>24237894wouldn't that'd imply explaining to kyuubey how Faust is directly influencing us?
>>24237890>>24237890I'm not exactly keen on Midori becoming the Aide to the Warmaster. One, since she's a defector from a rival Officio as opposed to having been part of the Ninth from the start. Second, she's greener (no pun intended) than either Kyoko, Mami or Sayaka.I'm casting my vote on either Mami or Kyoko.
>>24237816Midori and I will have to organize that I suppose, I wonder if Kharn would like her things shipped out to her or if her boyfriend would disapprove.
>>24237816I say we make the throne our office chair. That or send it to Siberia along with Kharn's trophies.Also, do politely thank him and asks if he wants anything or anything we should know about.
"We need to talk later. There are some things I want to know about Siberia. For now, thanks for te new place."Guys, we still need to discover what's hidden under the Siberia lab. In character, I mean.
>>24237943I'd like to second this but with MUCH less hostility.Pointing out to Kyuubey that this whole shitstorm could RUIN the Incubator's credibility and trustworthiness among their own staff could set some serious gears in motion.
>>24237951But we've already told him about faust and kyuubey's actually been killed by her before.
>>24237816"Thank you. "I will have cleaning crews take care of it. I am concerned about Mami's safety. "The Tenth is likely to escalate, and Mami is our Officio's most famous member. I expect him to try something. "Is there anything else we need to discuss?"
>>24237950That depends on whether or not Sayaka will consent to Kyoko becoming Aide.
>>24237816"I'll think about it. A moon base, I suppose you need to keep track of Faust's grief seed. I suppose I can trust you to tell me if it's hatching"
>>24237943>>24237966Except the part where the Incubators here disclose the dangers of service during puella orientation. This hostility is unwarranted and counterproductive.
>>24237957>MamiI dunno. With Midori AND Mami floating around we'd NEVER get a chance to smoke or drink.
>>24237996>I suppose I can trust you to tell me if it's hatching>hatchingWha?
>>24237943This. Time to piss some Mutant Felines off!
>>24238015Hey, I'm just throwing out possible candidates. I'm sure we can take Kyouko if you're that keen on Chiaki still being able to indulge.
>>24238019Grief seeds are witches eggs, they said that in the second episode.
>>24238008Thats why I said with less hostility in my seconding.I don't think the 'we can mindcontrol you and turn you into a fucking bomb against your will' was in the disclosure.
>>24238019It's been a while since I last saw PMMM, so I'm not 100% on this.But Sayaka and Madoka found Charlotte's seed before it "hatched". It had enough power to manifest a Barrier and familiars, but Charlotte wasn't born until later.Might be the case with Faust too. Moon-sized Grief Seed is enough for her to check up on us and give out Golden Weapons, but not enough for her to manifest physically... until it hatches.
>>24237957That's why some people thought of having multiple aides, Midori for logistics and the more social part of being Warmaster, Kyoko as personal bodyguard and Sayaka for combat support and to keep us from going full "Flesh of fallen angels" on the wrong people. Kyoko and Sayaka are a 2-pack you take one the other one is "free".
>>24237865Ahh crap, wrong vote.It's:>>24237826Along with:>>24237822 and>>24237836
>>24238008Except the part where we don`t actually now that. We know that QB did it once. What we don`t know however if this is his usual approach nor if this is also how other Incubators handle it. I´m also pretty sure that the "I can blow up your soulgem and turn you into a witch"-is pretty new and horrifying knowledge to every Meguca in existence. I mean, just think about how it turns the table: Before it was either death due to getting killed in Action by witches or you witching out due to despair/overexertion. But now there is one Incubator who can turn his Megucas into Magical Suicide-Bombers. And we know that this is already the second time he did that.I mean, why do YOU think there was suddenly a witch out of nowhere in Mami`s Apartment who happened to be also one Jyubeys Girls?
>>24238087We'll have to ask QB if that's negotiable. I like the idea though.
>>24237943>>24237966>>24238025I'm quite sure the "misunderstanding" he's talking about is the one during Kharn's time as warmaster in which we slaughtered 3 Eversor (?) squads because they were going to betray us.
>>24238015I'm pretty sure our favourite drink has changed to water at this point.And while I'd like to have Mami as our aide, she doesn't exactly have a great track record at keeping her cool under pressure.
>>24238120Actually, because one of them said they were going to rape Mami.
>>24238120Actually we slaughtered them brutally for threatening MamiThat did boil over into the event with Ahriman though so he could be referencing either or both
>>24238113In one of the earlier threads he said it's doable, but he didn't quite like the fact that we're taking his two best eversors and one of the few callidus for ourselves, that is not to say that the request has been shut down.
>>24238107Yep, Juubey is getting his evil nuts
>>24238062Isn't that a Jyuubei-only thing? Like, he's the only one who built it into his Contracts?Add in that QB said that the Tenth is considered a bit of a maverick among the Incubators, and it doesn't sound like the others use the kill-switches. If they did, we wouldn't have to go and 'retire' employees about to jump ship or go rogue.
>>24238138>>24238143>they were going to betray us.I think killing our whole squad (including ourselves) and then raping Mami can be considered quite the betrayal.
>>24238144Thanks for reminding me.
>>24238144He is just gonna have to live with it really.We want Kyouko and she won't come without Sayaka. Midori already is ours he should just be pleased we aren't taking Mami as well
>>24238144Still think we need to talk to Sayaka first, but I'm leaning heavily towards going with Midori.
>>24238146>Evil NutsJesus Christ how horrifying.And while were on it: >tfw when the cutest and most daawww`est meguca is wearing a Bikerhelmet and Leatheroutfit
>>24238175Agree to disagree then. We'll take all three if it's possible or just Midori if Sayaka shoots us down.
>>24238087>>24238144>>24238170I don't think taking Sayaka as well is a good idea. For one, she'll hate being our underling. Two, she'll distract Kyoko while on the job. Three, we need someone we know to run shit in the officio itself. Head Eversor or whatever fits the bill nicely.
>>24238107When did QB ever take Direct Control over a puella, or use a kill-switch?And have you forgotten how we retire fellow magical girls when the order comes down?
>>24238204Sayaka is very professional while on the job as is Kyouko to a degreeShe won't hate being our underling so much as she just hates us which we can deal withAnd she will be the voice of reason that we actually listen to out of anyone
>>24238204Well we are going to talk with Sayaka at one point. We can see if she can suppress her rage at us if there is a job that needs doing. If she can't then we shouldn't get her as an aide.
>>24238192>>24238107So is there really an OVA or are these just fanworks?
>>24238221He could just be holding that as an ace up his sleeve.Remember this Coobie is a damn sight smarter and more inclined to planning shit out than canon Coobie so he may well just be holding more back than any of us think while giving the impression of full disclosure
>>24238192Looking at that image, it's a bit disturbing to think that Yuma is reading Midori's hentai doujins, let alone think that she's a big fan of them.That aside, we should have the green girls meet. Might be enough to get Yuma out of the funk that Kyouko said she's found herself in.
>>24238120>I'm quite sure the "misunderstanding" he's talking about is the one during Kharn's time as warmaster in which we slaughtered 3 Eversor (?) squads because they were going to betray us.Oh, yeah, that one...
>>24238267That, and they dissed Mami. You never diss Mami while Chiaki is around.
>>24238170> he should just be pleased we aren't taking Mami as wellWait, we aren't?
>>24238289We are asking MamiYou don't order the pancake goddess around
>>24238204Not entirely sure but I think Sayaka IS the head Eversor. Sayaka's and Kyoko's jobs are mostly KILL MAIM BURN.That said, Sayaka is also there to make sure we don't do stupid shit that can escalate very quickly into all out war, slap us upside the head when taking unnecessary risks involving Kyoka, Midori and pretty much everyone else.And as >>24238233 said, be the voice of reason in general, Kyouko is also keeping her in check to not be a complete pain in the ass.And I have a feeling our standing might have improves slightly after the butler outfit photo and the soulgem tip. I'm not expecting a radical change or anything, but I doubt we'll wake up with a knife in the back anytime soon like what happened at Mami's place in the first thread(s?)
Midori as our personal aide.Mami as our Mami.Kyokou as our drinking buddy.Sayaka as That bitch.
>>24238204Red-Blue are not distractiong one another, they are keeping each other stable.
>>24238339>>Not entirely sure but I think Sayaka IS the head Eversor.We called Kyubey once while at Siberia. He said he intended to make Sayaka the Eversor Leader, and Kyoouko was going to be her Second.He was surprised when we asked for both of them for our personal retinue.It's not entirely a bad thing. Malal was Culexus Leader and Warmaster Aide, so there's that as precedent. Then again, she was exceptional.
>>24238339Not to mention the who sword thing was an accident in the first place, just that she was a jerk about it so people meme'd it into an intentional thing.
>>24237412Out of curiosity, whatever happened to the golden flintlocks?
>>24238422More like we didn't have Sayaka's side of the story for it so we all just thought it was intentional until the recap thread.
>>24238394What we need less is a retinue, and more squad leaders. You don't always need a powerful retinue.You DO need a retinue that can run away effectively, though, if they're not powerful in themselves, and that can handle burecracy and handling people.(Midori fits the first role of being sneaky, not so sure on the second parts, though)
We've already thrown the idea of having both of them work for us past Kyubey, and Kyouko wanted us to ask Sayaka first, so throwing the idea past Kyubey again without doing so isn't going to accomplish much.We still have some time to fully decide and talk to bluehair first, so we don't need to rush on this entire thing, if something comes up we definitely still have a small retinue of helpers even though nothing has been made official yet.
>>24238443What? Don't be silly. That was just Mami...hallucinating. Misremembering.Yes.
Every meguca can be related with, quite honestly, and has understandable reasons behind her actions and attitude.It's just that with some (such as Sayaka) it takes a while longer to see.[/meta]We are new and more complete now. So let's forget the old drudges and give her a chance to do the same.We should also apologise for giving her a kyubeykakke.
>>24238452The sad thing is that Mami thing pretty much has every perfect skill for being an aide, it's just that she might be a bit distracting for us to have someone who mothers us in the role, plus Kyubey would be sad at us taking away his lap pillow. As for stability, Mami's older and more mature now, and even back then she seemed a lot hardier about being a magical girl than Sayaka. The problem of her golden weapon or her being assassinated, though.................
>>24238480I think Mami should be left in an advisory role/left to act as QB's secretary. It's probably better for everyone, plus it's not as though we won't have access to her as a resource. And she'll probably foot some of the paperwork whether she's our aide or not.
>>24238500>paperworkWould Warmaster suite happen to have a fireplace? We should install one if it doesn't.
>>24238479Our constant love for Mami and hatred for Sayaka came as a bonus for fucking with time, much like our amnesia... Actually I think that came from too much torture when we switched timelines and got rescued. Yes, we need to have a talk with Kyouko and Sayaka about that whole thing.
>>24237822 >>24237826"Your...aide?" Kyuubey's voice takes on an inquisitive tone, as he finally squeezes himself out of one of the cat tower's hidey-holes - before clambering up slowly and carefully to the perch at the very top of the pet accessory, easily balancing himself there and then turning to look at you. "Ah, you must mean Hanegawa Midori. She is currently recuperating in sick bay. From what I've been told, it looks as though she'd suffered an entire month's worth of sleep deprivation, dehydration, and other ailments you probably needn't hear from me. Barrier sickness, nothing serious. Time does move differently in barriers, even more when you're in an overlapping one. She will be discharged in a day or two, you may depend upon it."The Incubator tilts it head slightly to the side. "Speaking of which, though, Matsuda. Does that mean you've decided on taking Hanegawa on as an aide? I distinctly remember you wanting to have both Sakura Kyoko and Miki Sayaka for aides, as well. Not unheard of, of course - the former Warmaster of the Eighth had three aides of her own, although she called them in more colorful names than that." A moment. "I do believe that Miki Sayaka does have something to say about it, first, so you may want to breach the matter with her personally before you make your official decision."You take the metallic passcard to your new apartment and tap it carefully on the desk in front of you. Doesn't Sayaka have something to say about everything, anyway?"She is of the outspoken, opinionated sort, so yes. But she is strong-minded, sharp, and quite astute for an Eversor. If anything, you might want to consider a special role for her, if you do take her in as an aide."A special role...?[1/2]
>>24238500So basically be our psychologist after pinky fucks with our mind, again. I like this, I like this very much. And hopefully after telling her about pinky and her connection to the golden weaponry we should increase our chances of saving her by a ton.
>>24238581"Equerry. The Equerry is the rank closest to the Warmaster. She is above all others except for the Warmaster's personal aides, the Warmaster herself, and the presiding Incubator. She can advise the Warmaster, fight alongside her if she wishes, or even act as her in her stead should the Warmaster be absent or indisposed. She can also help the Warmaster make the decisions necessary to lead an Officio." Kyuubey's tail flicks from side to side as he explains. "The rank is martial, never one of servitude, although...Kharn certainly made a secretary of HER Equerry. Although, I rather think she preferred it that way. The Equerry, I meant. Kharn has never been one to concern herself with the details."Another moment of silence passes between the two of you."...Please do not mistake this as this Incubator's clumsy way of trying to ensure that his top Eversor officer and his Warmaster do not spend all day trying to find out what color each other's intestines are." He says after a moment. "This is frank and cold-blooded manipulation with no regard to your well-being, or sanity, or company stock. I assure you of this."...He's getting sarcastic again. You hate it when he does that.Why aren't you talking about Malal?What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.A moon base? We have a moon base?What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?
>>24238610>[X]What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?PLOT POINT
>>24238610>What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.>What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon? In order of importance.
>>24238610[X]"Why aren't you talking about Malal?"--[X]"Is there something about her that you're hiding from me, Kyubey?"[X]"What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?"
>>24238610>What happened to Ahriman's Golden Weapon?We'll ask about the chair at the very end.
>>24238610>What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?>What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.perferably both.
>>24238610>A moon base? We have a moon base? And what happened to my chair, I hope you didn't paint it gold while I was gone.
>>24238610>What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?>What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.>Why aren't you talking about Malal?In this order. Moon base can be brought up later.
>>24238610"When did I say I was going to make Midori my aide?">[x]What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?

>>24238610>[x]What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.>[x]What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?First things first.
>>24238610[x] What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.[x] What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?
>>24238610>What happend to Ahrimans golden weapon?>What happened to my chair? I like that chair.Who says you can't mix business and pleasure?
Why aren't you talking about Malal?What happened to my chair? I liked that chair.A moon base? We have a moon base?What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?Special emphasis on we have a fucking moon base? Can we fire moon lasers at things? It seems what you things would like
>>24238662>"When did I say I was going to make Midori my aide?"During the first phone call from Siberia.I mean, c'mon, you can be serious about even considering not taking her. The only question is what official label does she get for staying by our side.
>>24238707Why does the moon base surprise you?QB's already said that the Incubators have considerable space assets and that they've got probes monitoring Faust's Grief Seed.
>>24238744It's one thing to have a dozen probes monitoring a huge chunk of doom in spees, but a moon base? Now that's quite something
>>24238610[X] What happened to Ahriman's golden weapon?[X] We have a moon base? Why?
>>24238610No one seiyiku should have all this power. do it[X] Chair[X] Ahriman's staff
>>24238776Oh yeah. Considering they're quite a big distance from their homeworld. Although it would be reasonable to assume they can requisition materials from there if they have a way to relay messages.
[x]Let me guess, you also have a Dyson sphere too.
>>24238744>>24238776I guess that in their usually dickary that the incubators built the moon base in such a way that only they can walk around it comfortably
>>24238801A space base... sized for alien cats... yeah...
>>24238744More because I feel it is sort of in character for Chiaki to emphasize something like that in order to insult kyubey more and treat the other things as sort of business as usual
>>24238796Well, they gotta have vacuum cleaners around here somewhere. QB doesn't seem to be the sort to allow magic expenditure on menial tasks like cleaning.
>>24238849Not exactly what I meant.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyson_sphere
>>24238849Incubators like all cats would have a fascination with roomba cleanersThe Moon base uses them for everything from transit to actual cleaning
>>24238911Psst. I think he's Making a joke
So, with Kyuubey reacting like a cat with cathouse and catnip, we need to try THE ULTIMATE WEAPON.
NYAN NYAN, NYAN NYAN
>>24238626"Ahriman?" Kyuubey seems puzzled for a moment, before blinking. "Ah. The former Warmaster of the Third. Yes, I was expecting Kharn to talk to you about her exploits." For a moment, it looked very much like the Incubator was hesitating. "I'm afraid that I have nothing to tell you about it other than the fact that we don't know where it is, Matsuda. Kharn's Equerry conducted the search herself, an hour after her injuries were taken care of. She was adamant that it was found, but it seemed to have disappeared the moment Ahriman let go of it."So it's gone, then? And nobody knows who has it?"There hasn't been any sighting of it, even from the other Officios. At least, those who still deign to reply to us in a civilized manner." It's here that Kyuubey sounds disappointed. Crestfallen, almost. "Well, I'm sure it will turn up sooner or later. We will simply have to deal with it as it comes, and hope that it won't come to another bloodbath when it does."Right. Now, about that moon base--[1/2]
>>24239406Aw. Looks like Kyuubey could do with a cuddle.
>>24239406Decu, pls... The Chair!
>>24239406>At least, those who still deign to reply to us in a civilized mannerTime to teach those fucks about manners. With axe, fire and golden DEagle.
>>24239406Prophet has Ahriman's staff. Possibly with Ahriman inside it.
>>24239429We could do that with the "Thank you", just to really screw with Kyuubey.
>>24239406"It's not ours." Kyuubey cuts you off. "We have a part in it, that much is sure, but it serves mainly as the base of operations of the First Officio. It also serves as an outpost, from where we can safely observe the Grief Seed of Faust." It's here that his tone becomes slightly bitter. "Only Incubators and the Warmaster of the First Officio are allowed access to it, so do not feel slighted, Matsuda. Besides, once I go insane, you will be among the first that I will send in order to capture it for our use."That's comforting."I knew you would appreciate it."Right. Now, what about your chair?"You mean that chair you stole?" Kyuubey seems to be almost smirking. "Integrated into your new apartment, as I believe you'll be pleased to note. Tomoe Mami oversaw the preparations personally, and her words, as I remember it, describe it as something that 'really ties the room together'. She also made sure to organize your firearm cache into something approaching a proper armory, rather than just stacks of ordnance haphazardly stored in flammable crates."[2/3]
>>24239486Mami's just too good for you. You make a note to thank her later.You watch as Kyuubey finally hops off the perch, landing neatly on all four feet - before making his way towards his desk, the desk that you've been rendered unconscious on earlier. He jumps up again, easily clearing the height of the desk, and he sits back on his haunches as if to survey the damage you've done to his workspace."...I'll have to get Housekeeping to see to this later." You hear him mumble to himself, before he places a paw on the bouquet of blue roses. "Now, I've satisfied your curiosity, Matsuda, satisfy mine. What are these for? I recall that roses of the red variety are mainly used for purposes of romance, but I've never seen blue roses used before. What is the context of these, may I ask?"How do you respond?
>>24239493Oh dear.I'm drawing a complete blank.
>>24239493In my case,a practical joke and thanks for someone.
>>24239493>"I'll tell you if you tell me why you're pussyfooting about Malal."
>>24239493"It's a joke. I decided to grow a sense of humor."
>>24239493"Do I look like someone that knows about flower language QB? I just thought that the girls would like them."
>>24239493[x] Blow him into chunks.Old habits die hard.
>>24239493Silly Kyuubey, girls don't give red roses to other girls. That's forbidden love.
Wait, weren't we getting the roses as a shameless exploitation of the popularity of Miracle Midori/Murder Mayumi?
>>24239517And once that's done, either go check up on Midori or go search for Sayaka. Need to get those done with.>>24239538Giving him a scare might be fun!
>>24239523Also:"Is there something about Malal that I should know, Kyubey?"
>>24239493"Psychological warfare involving human relationship quirks. I think. Should be fun."
>>24239493um......"Midori's idea"Technically it was her manga gave us the idea.
>>24239538I'd rather not...
>>24239545Actually it is a shameless exploitation of the official girls reading that and us wanting to troll them a bit>>24239548Yes push him on Malal
>>24239493"Its an act of good will towards my coworkers. "
>>24239493It's not stolen. It's spoil of war. By the way - would you happend to have a place where one could mantain a jet fighter or five?
>>24239493"I have no clue."
>>24239486>ties the room togetherOh man somebody's going to pee on our chair.>>24239493"It's kind of an in-joke."
Screw with the cat, smile and say that it's for him as thanks.
>>24239493While we explain the roses to him, we should go ahead with the hug and thank you to him. Maybe some Petting too.
>>24239545Yes.And to make them stop and stare and little and maybe even squee.
>>24239517I like this one. Also ask if he might know where we can get jet pilots/ tank crews from time to time.
>There are people in this Thread who actually want to EXPLAIN the joke
We could just explain what the blue roses mean.
>>24239721We could mindfuck him and explain that it represents our subconscious, long buried, insatiable, and unfulfillable lust for Sayaka. Or they could just be a nice color and we know jack about colors, so asking her the meaning beyond 'they're pretty flowers' is pointless.
>>24239493"I have my reasons. What aren't you telling me about Malal?"
>>24239602If anyone is peeing on that chair it would be us to mark our territoryThat's more murderface though
>>24239590Dangit, I can't find a picture of that particular doujin. Closest I got isn't hard-translated. XD
>>24239803Damn, you work fast.
Guys, I just realized that the OP image says we only have 3 golden weapons. Our DEagle, the sword and the gauntlets. Do you know what that means? Either it's not updated, or the wielder must die for us to "own" the weapons.
>>24239892Decu wouldn't do that to us. right?
>>24239892I wish I had an edit button. Yes I'm implying we might have to kill Kharn to be able to use the chainsaws.
>>24239892>>24239907Or because we have yet to open the crate and go have a little soul chat with whatever is inside them we don't count as having them
>>24239892The rest are probably still being held in that huge suitcase/crate that was sent along with Chiaki and Midori.
>>24239913I can only hope that to be true.
>>24239918Meaning all that's counted so far is what's currently in our personal inventory?
>>24239906>Implying Decu won't pull a fast one on us.Remember Siberia?
So mildly offtopic, I find a great deal of importance in quickly figuring out who our new neighbor is, in room 666, or if we don't do it quickly, never investigating.
>>24239517 >>24239513 >>24239602"A joke. I...see." Kyuubey grows silent at this, as if in deep contemplation. "I understand. Yes, well, it's nothing compared to the jokes that Kharn perpetrated in her tour of duty as Warmaster. Filling Vindicare lockers with toothpaste, stealing underwear and wearing them on her head, skull puppet shows...not very tasteful, very puerile jokes that always had someone in tears at the end. This seems relatively harmless, and quite fragrant." You see him take a sniff of one particular blossom. "Ah, excellent crop. You either have good taste or bought from a flower shop with a halfway-competent florist." He nods at this, before turning back to you. "In any case, Matsuda, do not let me detain you. I've quite the backlog, as I'm sure you do as well." The Incubator seems to catch your eye as you look down at the mess you've made of his desk. "Don't bother picking up after yourself, Housekeeping will take care of it. You can take your roses with you, however, as I'm sure you need them for that joke of yours."You do so, after making sure to place the passcard of your new apartment in your inventory. Kyuubey immediately occupies his leather chair as soon as you vacate it, the mutant cat resting right on the spot where you'd sat....Clever little bastard.You make to leave, but something catches at your subconscious. Something strange about the conversation you had with Kyuubey just now. You point this out to him, and the Incubator takes a few moments to respond."...There isn't anything to tell about Malal that I'm sure Kharn hasn't told you," He replies in his usual dulcet tones, although the faint hint of tension is there. "I refrain from speaking about her because I find that it is easier to forget." Kyuubey turns away. "I will say, however, that she was my greatest triumph as an Incubator - and at the same time, my biggest failure."...It was that bad?[1/2]
>>24239978It's Pinky. She's going to be our neighbor in room 666.
>>24240026>skull puppet showsI'm not saying do this now, but at SOME point...
I have this feeling that our new apartment is close to where Iori will get her 'date' with that bastard. If it is, we can surely rescue her from his claws.
>>24240026"Is it so surprising for me to say that?" The Incubator turns towards you, blinking. "Contrary to what we usually display, Matsuda, we do have emotions of our own. We simply try to remove them from the equation as much as we can when business is at stake. When decisions need making."Well, it's not your fault Incubators have a rap of being souless, furry little satans, then."Perhaps. I will dwell on that. But I am not concealing anything about Malal that you may find useful in the future, Matsuda. Trust me on that at least."You'll try."I suppose that is the best I can hope for from my Warmaster. very well, Matsuda, don't let me detain you."You nod at this, before finally leaving. Outside, Kyoko seems to be snoozing on the receptionist's chair - but she snaps awake the moment you come within five paces of her. Nearly falling off the chair doing so."Gwah? Ngh." Kyoko barely manages to come across as intelligible, before she shakes her head and slaps both her cheeks. "Wake up, wake up," She grumbles, before standing up, a sleepy grin baring her teeth as she sees you. "O-oh, hey, Murderface! How'd it go with the boss?" She yawns as she steps around the desk to meet you. "Just gonna report that those Golden Thingies are in your own personal lockdown vault downstairs." She gives you another passcard, this time a completely-black metal one. "Kyuubey's told me to show the place to you anytime you want to. Oh, and your new apartment, too. I'm supposed to drive you there so you know where it actually is."[2/3]
>>24240194Fuck no. We'll reopen her almost healed wounds. She'll have a much happier and longer relation with him than chiaki.
Kharn has a skull throne. And out previous name was Murderface. Can we take the faces of our enemies and frame them on our office's walls.Or the meeting place with "soon to be enemies"?
>>24240194>If it is, we can surely rescue her from his claws.If by "rescue" you mean "not give a fuck", then yes, I'm with you.
>>24240194BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!!!!!
>>24240204>>24240213>>24240228That chapter needs closure. A better closure than 'we fucked up what to tell her and then didn't give a fuck about her'
>>24240201Right. So she's your chaperone for the day, eh?"Hahaha! Sorta like that, I suppose!" Kyoko grins. "Oh, I guess I can drive you to my apartment! Sayaka's there now, if you want to get that talk with her out of the way." There's a rather plaintive note to the red-haired Eversor's voice, here, as if she wants you to choose that particular route. "Oh, and, um. Remember that idol chick?"...Yeah?"Says she wants you to visit her ASAP. Nearly screamed my ear off remindin' me." Kyoko frowns at this. "Ah, why can't you score with someone mellow n' shit, Murderface? Like Oriko, or something. Well, not her, of course, she hates your guts," she adds hastily, "...but someone less...intense in that kinda way."You'll...think about it. Although, really, she's one to talk."Ah, Sayaka-chan's just high-strung, is all. The highly-trained types're usually like that, aren't they?"How do you respond?Ask Kyoko to take you to your lockdown vault.Ask Kyoko to take you to her apartment to talk to Sayaka.Ask Kyoko to take you to the Lovelace Residence to talk to Iori.Other.
>>24240256>Ask Kyoko to take you to your lockdown vault.thenAsk Kyoko to take you to her apartment to talk to Sayaka.

>>24240256[x] VaultLet's see what kinds of cool shit we've got. We're here anyways, might as well.
>>24240256[x] IoriThen Sayaka. Personnel first, objects then.

Or something along those lines.
>>24240256Fabiola talked.>[x]Ask Kyoko to take you to your lockdown vault.We must make sure that no one has stolen our shit.
>>24240287Goddammit.YES.Check in on Midori. Put the blue roses in a vase by her bed.
>>24240280>>24240311Good idea, lets go raid the vault like a true adventurer.
>>24240256Go talk with Sayaka. This should be our first priority right now. We should also send Iori a text telling her we're back in Japan and that we're swamped with official business. We'll visit as soon as we're clear. Polite enough to let her know she's still under our Officio's protection, but that we're not going to rush off just because she insisted.
>>24240333Maybe with a handwritten note that says:"THESE ARE GET-WELL SOON FLOWERS. THEY DO NOT REPRESENT ANY SORT OF SYMBOLISM. THEY ARE JUST GET-WELL SOON FLOWERS."
>>24240256[x]Lockdown vault, then[x]SayakaIori can wait. We do need to square things away with her, but she can throw her idol tantrums all she want. We're a Warmaster. Not her bitch.
>>24240333The blue roses are for the joke. Midori gets the red one, once we get one.
>>24240357If we're doing it to midori, its obviously in reference to MMxMM.The blue rose basically is 'you're mine'.
>>24240336>>24240280Ya think we can put our vault inside our inventory?>what the fuck Murderface?
>>24240362>Iori can wait.Can't keep a lady waiting. And another lady should know it, even if that lady is us.
>>24240256[X] Inventory[X] Sallaka Iori a shit.
>>24240256[x] Go check on Midori
>>24240357PS WE NEED TO TALK. ABOUT THE ANIME
>>24240411Iori is no lady.
>>24239907If this were the case, at least it wouldn't be that hard.
>>24240256Sooner or later, we need to give Kyoko an awkward hug and thank her for being a good friend, despite us being a raging dick 99.9999% of the time she's known us.
>>24240420She's not going to disappear just like that. I do think that sending a text message would be "good enough" for now. A peace overture without running off just because she wants us to.
>>24240392That reminds me, we still need to see if the shield can store living things, like the crew of an MBT or a wing of MiGs
>>24240202>>Kaneda MadokaSo Malal has a flaming orange bike and a laser cannon hidden somewhere?
>>24240451Ahahhaah, oh man this is amazing.
>>24240256Go to talk to Sayaka, we can leave the hell weapons for a day or so but we should get our official business out of the way firstLeave Iori to last or never, we should just avoid reopening that can of worms
>>24240256>Says she wants you to visit her ASAPPrepare to be heartbroken as Iori declares her relationship with that Garcia boy.
>>24240256[X]Iori first[X]Blue secondWe already know what's in the vault, we're not in a hurry for that, so we might as well go in order of urgency.
>>24240515If that's all the bitch wants to do after calling us with such urgency, she gets a punch to the face. Not that a Warmaster has to comply, it's the idea that counts.
>>24240256Ask Kyoko to take us to Sayaka. Text Iori that we got her message, and that we will see her as soon as Office work is done. Then we'll see her. We owe Kyoko this much at least, after all the shit we made her endure on our behalf.
>>24240256What if Iori wants to tell us she's getting married? See, all the more reason to visit her first.
>>24240462It really wouldn't. We need to see her or ignore her.
>>24240357Mixed signals are a go!
>>24240571>Ask Kyoko to take us to Sayaka.I bet Sayaka's finally going to crack and say something like, "Did you know that we're supposed to be fictional characters in some story? Did you know there are parallel worlds out there?"
>>24240256[x] Drive to visit Kyouko, on the way text Iori that we'll see her after we get back from work business
Rolled 6, 11, 13, 7, 1, 3, 11, 18, 12, 2, 13, 9, 5, 8, 15, 16, 20, 20 = 190>>24240603The parallel worlds part we know because of timeline-hopping that we got memories of.
Guys, the vault is right under us, downstairs. Grab our weapons of doom now and we won't need to visit the office anytime soon.
>>24240451this made my day
[x] Vault then Sayaka.
>>24240664Eh, they'll end up with us anyway when we need them. The DEagle and the Katana have this way of showing up when necessary. I'm sure it's fine.Right?Anyhow:1. Check up on Midori.2. Go talk to Sayaka. Who knows? Maybe we can set up a Sayaka flag or something. Hahaha! ...Yeah, right.
>>24240645What about those _other_ parallel worlds with spaceships, killer cyborgs and that tyrannical world government?
>>24240664>Won't need to visit the officeBitch, this OUR Office now. We are not going to avoid surveying our kingdom.
>>24240256I think we should set our priorities straight.1. [x] Go see Midori2. [x] Meet Sayaka3. [x]Go to Vault4 [x] Sit in Comfy chair5. [x] Drill on your nose6. [x] Take a dump7 [x] Polish Weapons8. [x]Do nothing..........999. [x] Go visit Iori.
>>24240746aren't we still in training? we're not lord and master yet.
>>24240767I can agree with this.
>>24240776No, we were to become the Warmaster upon our return from Siberia.
>>24240729Yeah, but we don't "own" them yet. As >>24239913 said, we might have to chat a bit with the weapons to get ownership and such
>>24240767Was ist dir?
>>24240776Training is over. We're just missing the ratification. We ARE Warmaster. It's just not official yet.
>>24240810Pretty much this. It's like that period between an old monarch dieing and the heir being crowned.
>>24240767I disagree with your priorities as Iori is still a client of this Office, and we will be a more professional Warmaster than Kharn.
>>24240828with less succession crisis
>>24240767Guys, the vault IS JUST DOWNSTAIRS. It would be a lot faster to goto the vault and then everything else, well except Midori, gotta see that Midori
>>24240828Hail to the Queen of Dakka, bitches.
>>24240850And what would we pick up? The Golden Weapons? The ones that magically appear in our inventory when we reach for them regardless of if we want them there?
>>24240863sweet merciful fuck, that's great!
>>24240889The point is there might be things there that our predecessor left. And proximity. Midori Vaultnever Iori
>>24240767Don't we need to see Yuma at some point for that box-thing that malal gave us?
>>24240889Yes, the chainsaws specifically. Why? Because we never touched them, so technically they still belong to Kharn and won't appear in our inventory. The OP image also only highlights 3 weapons: Our DEagle, the katana and the gauntlets.
>>24240275 >>24240280 >>24240283 >>24240362You decide to have Kyoko take you to your personal lockdown vault for now, but after a quick detour to sick bay, to pay a visit to Midori. Kyoko grins at this, but doesn't say anything as the both of you make your way there. You earn more than your lion's share from the night shifters you pass by - it's almost like clockwork, how they glanced at you, doing a double-take - before finally gawking at the bouquet of blue roses resting on your shoulder. Some of them blushed a full crimson, stopping right in their tracks and stuttering greetings, while others shyly asked if they could snap a photo of you. Before you could frown at them and decline, however, Kyoko had nudged the prospective photographer aside, cheerfully yet brusquely telling them that you were on important business, and that you mustn't be held up.You asked her about this, just outside Midori's room. What was that all about?"Huh? Oh, you know, just trying it out, being an aide kinda deal," Kyoko seems to be tickled pink at this, clearly enjoying herself. "It's the truth anyhow, isn't it? You're on important business, and it's not like we have all night for it." Well, that's true, but--"Ah, I don't remember you being this fussy, Murderface. Man, what'd they do to you in Siberia?" Kyoko pats your shoulder. "Come on, it's okay to relax your shoulders a bit more, you know!" It's then that she pushes you towards the door leading to Midori's room. "Now, go on, get in there, do your thing with the flowers. Do your best Murder Mayumi impersonation or somethin' - hell, just be yourself, that's accurate enough."What? But how did she--"Friend reads it, alongn with the rest of the freakin' Eversors," Kyoko hisses. "Now go!"...Fine, fine. She didn't need to be so pushy.[1/2]
>>24240960You enter Midori's room quietly. She's...well, she looks alright, thankfully. You were expecting the worst - the Callidus hooked up to tubes and such. The only tube she seems to be connected to is an IV drip, and she seems to be fast asleep on her bed."Matsuda-sempai..." You hear her murmur in her sleep. "P-please stop teasing me..."Well, now. It seems that Midori's having a strange dream about you.You're pretty glad Kyoko's not around to hear this.What do you do?Put the bouquet of blue roses on her bedstand.Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.Listen to her dreaming for a while.Do nothing and leave. She needs to rest.
>>24240863She can order me around anyday.
>>24240968>[X] Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.
>>24240968[ x ] Place a single rose on her pillowOver the course of her service, she will accrue more.
[x] Iori because I don't see any reason not to other than "not wanting to deal with her"
>>24240968>Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.Oh god the hilarity
>>24240968>[x]Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.Maybe take some care to ensure that she won't roll over it (and its thorns) if she moves around.
>>24240968[x]Leave flowers on the table, whisper something weird in her ear before leaving.
>>24240968Single rose, listen for a while.
>>24241012Oh! Oh! Yes! Like: "You smell so nice."
>>24240968>Listen to her dreaming for a while.>Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.Those two in that order.
>>24240968>Put the bouquet of blue roses on her bedstand.
>>24240968Put the bouquet on her bed stand and then go, she needs her rest.
>>24240968>[X]Listen to her dreaming for a while.Too hilarious to pass up, but only for a little bit.>[X]Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.Time's a wasting, but there should be enough time for a laugh.
>>24240968Man if we didn't have important business we could have totally been recording this> [x] Place single rose on her pillow, put rest back in inventory> [x] listen to her dreaming for a little bit
>>24241071Agreed with thisPlus it means we have the rest of a bouquet for more fun if needed
>>24240968[x]Pillow.We don't need to spy on her dreams or anything weird like that. It'll probably just be weird and personal and uncomfortable.
>>24240968[x] place rose on her pillow and then kiss her on the forehead before we leave.
>>24241140Worst case scenario: It's weird and uncomfortable and we never bring it up again.Best case scenario: It's hilarious blackmail material for a rainy day. Still, I don't think we should waste too much time here.
you guys do remember what blue roses meant, right?
>>24241045Actually make it rather: >Listen to her dreaming for a while.>Hold her hand while she dreams.>Place a single rose on her pillow, put the rest back in inventory.
>>24241262Yes, but they played a part in the initial chapters of Midori's manga. It's a joky. Funny ha ha.
>>24241262Fuck that. It's not like she need any reassurance one way or the other at this point after everything we have been through.
>>24241288>>24241451I hope I'm worrying over nothing then.
>>24241451>Its not like a completly insecure girl needs any form of reassurence that we, in fact, do like her after Chiaki was a Klutz when it comes to FEELINGS all the timeUhhh...You don`t seem to know how women work. Or teenage girls in particular.
>>24241492She'll probably get slightly angry over being teased, maybe
>>24240986 >>24240992 >>24241004 >>24241006You listen to her dreaming for a bit.It's...you wish you hadn't done that. She's tired and probably on medication, and she has no idea what's going on. Of course she's going to have weird dreams, like you holding her down and having your way with her, or stuff that involves candlewax and handcuffs and blindfolds. And really, as the person who saved you from two overlapping nightmares, she deserves better than her sempai barging in on her unguarded, vulnerable moments.No, you did that the last time already, reading her manga beside her on the plane.Shaking your head, you take a single rose from the bouquet - making sure that all the thorns on its stem were sheard off - and it's then that you place it on her pillow, beside her. With luck, it'd be the first thing she sees when she wakes up, and not roll over it or something. You nod at your own handiwork, before reaching out and giving her hand - the one without the IV sticking out the back of it - a gentle squeeze. She mumbles something and returns the gesture, her grip feeble, feather-light. You let go a moment later, and place the rest of the roses in your inventory. You slip out of the room as quietly as you can, giving the green-haired Callidus one last look before finally exiting. Hopefully, that would be the last time you send Midori to the hospital.Because you can't help but fear if the next time will be to the morgue."Ready to go?" Kyoko greets you, the Eversor seemingly having waited just outside, leaning on the wall just beside the door. "Thought you were gonna spend longer in there, to be honest."...Midori's asleep, you tell her. It wouldn't be much point, anyway. Besides, the both of you are still on a timetable, aren't you?"...I guess so." She shrugs. "Anyway, we can take a short cut through here. Vault's pretty much close."[1/2]
>>24241703With Kyoko leading, you do manage to get to the vault in barely no time at all - although you did have to do a lot of corridor-cutting and such. The vault is exactly what it looks like - a huge bank vault of thick, uncompromising iron, with gears and spokes and the entire thing.You slide the card that Kyoko gave you into the slot she points out, and it's with a heavy grind and groan of metal that the vault doors begin to carefully dismantle each other, the interconnected gears and cogs breaking apart and folding back. A heavy blast door rolls upwards, followed by another, and then another....Until finally, a room is revealed. One with twenty seemingly-specific weapon racks, each with their own numbered plaque burnished in gold. Each plaque sporting a roman numeral, from I to XX.Kirika's sword is placed in the XX rack, of course. Kharn's chainaxes, the only other set of Golden Weapons in the vault, is placed in the XV rack."Take your time, I'll be right outside," Kyoko grins and waves, just before one of the blast doors slam down in between the both of you. You're worried about being stuck there for a second, until you see the same card input slot near the vault doors.In any case, you're here now.What do you do?Grab all the other weapons and go. No need to stay here any longer.Touch the XV Golden Weapons.Touch the XX Golden Weapon.Talk to Kotarou Yuu.
>>24241713>[x]Talk to Kotarou Yuu
[x]Touch the XV Golden Weapons.
>>24241713>Talk to Kotarou Yuu.and shove EVERYTHING into inventory
>>24241713Talk to Kotarou Yuu, tell her we can't chat for long. Then touch the XV Golden Weapon. No way do we touch XX, bitch is crazy and will try to possess us.
>>24241713>Talk to Kotarou Yuu.Let's see what's up with her and if she's down for more action.
>>24241713>[X] Touch fluffy tail>[X] Touch XV Golden Weapons>[X] Talk to Hamhands
>>24241713[x]Talk to Kotarou Yuu.I'd like to say we should grab the weapons in case something comes up, but it's probably not a good idea to hang onto them so casually, even with the Procedure.
Talk to koutarou yuu.But I really feel we need to talk to iori eventually, or we will face some kind of bad consequence.
>>24241713So the number on the axes is finally revealed. Nice. Gives further weight to the whole Tarot theory that was floating around, if Yuu is Strength and Kharn is The Devil. Anyhow, talk to Yuu real quick, then leave.
>>24241713XV: The devil >[x]Talk to Kotarou Yuu.
>>24241713>Kotarou Yuu.who's this again? is this punchfist?
>>24241713>Talk to Kotarou Yuu.>Take XV
>>24241843Yeah. VIII - Strength. The girl in the bangles.
>>24241816like Iori becoming a magical girl
>>24241873>Either she works for us or we get to kill herHow is this bad?
>>24241713>[x]Talk to Kotarou Yuu.
>>24241826I forgot what this makes us then, with out DEagle.
>>24241713Talk to Yuu, see if she knows any way to deflect the sheer crazy coming off the other twoI would warn against touching the others until we have something a bit more solid in place to prevent FoFA than our shaky faith in the treatment and ourselves
And that's it for me today! We'll pick up where we left off this week, starting with the most voted action.Thank you for your participation, everyone, even though I've skipped a few weekends. I'll try to make sure that threads become more regular! Questions before I go to bed! Oh, and feedback as always is appreciated!
>>24241890"With our" rather
>>24241886What do you think her wish is going to be?
>>24241904This. Avoid actually handling any of the damn golden curses until we can properly talk to them, and avoid going Flesh of Fallen Angels again.
>>24241905Shame. I wanted to cover talking with Sayaka today. Thank you for the thread, Deculture!
Shitty little dive bar. That was new. Never been much for drinking, and this sure as hell didn’t look like somewhere I’d been dragged to before. It had that kind of personal, old timey touch you can’t find in Santa Destroy. It was comforting. Warm. Maybe not pristine, with the heavy burn of old smoke and cheap liquor in the air, but…untouched. Three phantoms sat on the stools, talking and laughing in old and distorted voices, memories washed away by time. …It was easy to pick Kharn out. It’d always be easy to pick Kharn out. Next to her was Kong. Was probably a pretty old memory, she didn’t seem anything like Kong as I’d seen her. And on Kong’s other side was Malal. …I could believe that. Malal probably found this place. Serving the three of them was a reedy shadow, almost human, with a long, beaklike nose. Its eyes pulsed an eerie red as it craned its neck toward me, and we exchanged a silent nod.…That one was mine.My knife was in my hand in an instant – more out of habit than concern. If there was a reason to be concerned, I’d know. The floor was soundless under me as I made my way to the bar and took a seat next to ‘Kharn’. The voices didn’t get any louder or clearer, and filtering it through Japanese was a pain, but I could recognize her barking, unintelligible accent, at least.Jumped a little when the bartender grabbed my wrist. She jumped, too, when I stabbed hers a second later. …Didn’t have the patience for their bullshit. Something was about to go down, I could feel it, and that warranted my attention a fuckload more than the same old night-to-night game of cat and asshole. The bartender’s scream filled the air, piercing and inhuman, like every other time Eversor Diplomacy had invaded my dreams, and the whole bar seemed to break apart, the memories next to me fizzling and dying. The smoky smell was replaced by an all-too-familiar rotting stench. Blood and death. With accompaniment by about a hundred flies.(1/6)
Told her to get me some fucking whiskey if she wanted to stick around, and found a drink in my hand a second later. Not like it mattered. Couldn’t even get buzzed in a dream, not that I wanted to anyway. …It was pretty good whiskey, though. And the only thing the damn place seemed to have.After a nice, long drag, I took a look at the suddenly-fucked bar. The quiet melody of the old jukebox in the corner had lapsed into eerie silence, and its cheerful light flickered, barely powered. The whole place had turned…dusty, I guess. It wasn’t natural light. Sort of like staring at the world through an old, dirty TV screen. The scuffed wood flooring wasn’t visible at all, though in clear view, as if each had its own dim spotlight, were…bodies. Corpses, lots of them.Wish I could say I didn’t recognize a few. …It’d always be easy to pick Kharn out. There was Mickey Blueberry, with some girl in red clutching her. …Maybe she’d hugged her to death or something. And…there was also Miss Tomoe’s costume, filled out by Miss Tomoe’s chest. …Looked like her head was gone, though. Like somebody cut it off to make a statement. Sounds like something we’d do. Or kept it as a trophy. She had a nice head, I guess.I heard the door open about then. …But it was probably just a noise. Doubt the door there even opened. It was pretty obvious who it was just by the less-than-subtle signs her mind was giving me, but I figured I’d have to wait around until things got worse to hear from her. If she even showed at all. Kind of a nice surprise.So I did the ladylike thing and offered to buy her a drink. I was a little relieved just to hang around someone who wasn’t completely batfuck crazy or way, way too energetic, anyway.(2/6)
>>24241939>>24241939I wish for Chiaki Matsuda to love me
>>24241905Thanks for the thread!E-book should be updated in about an 40 min to an hour.
“Anyone can buy me a drink,” she mumbled back. Didn’t take her eyes off me for a second, like she already thought I was going to open her up. “but they should at least have the courtesy to tell me who the hell they are, and where the hell this is.”Cheeky bitch. …Kind of reminds me of me. That probably shouldn’t be a surprise, though. I gave her my name and called the shady bartender over again.I couldn’t help but laugh as she mumbled out her astonishment at her drink’s sudden appearance. Kid wasn’t a dreamer. Or maybe normal people don’t have dreams like this. Hell if I know.Told her not to worry about it. Trying to figure out dream logic is probably the quickest way to give yourself a seizure, anyway. I did my best to lay it out for her – we were in one of our dreams, God knows whose. …I could tell by the way she looked that she didn’t remember me, but apparently she was to amnesia what Annie was to shitty nerd conventions. Least, that’s what they said about her. She pretty much confirmed it a second later.It’s alright, I told her. Job’s tough on all of us. Harder than most on us. Heh. We had a little toast, to a reunion.…Thought I caught a sweet scent in the air. Smelled like death and a flower field, and it was…fresher, somehow, than the rest of the room. Might have been the Lady poking her head in to check on her Shieldmaiden. Might have been her keeping tabs on me. …Might have just been an old, stupid memory springing up, the kind you think of whenever you meet someone like you. A fellow monster.Warmaster Marigold asked me three questions the first day I became a magical girl. Guess she asked anyone she thought might be promising. They’re questions I answered pretty easily back then, but lately I’ve been thinking about them again. I had a hunch about the new Kong, too. Seemed like she had to sort her shit out. (3/6)
>>24241905Is ignoring Iori the road to her BAD END?As for feedback, this is the first time I actually got to be in one of the threads, took me 5 days to read everything on foolz and I love this quest, it's fun to actually discuss with the people in here.
I asked her if she liked hurting people. …It was a requirement to get into the Warmaster’s Special School. She only took in a special kind of crazy bitch. Someone bloodthirsty, someone who’d come hunting for her later. Someone who would get off on it like she did. Someone who would sit and drool at the idea of carving her fucking chest open.Yeah. I like hurting people.…The second…Heh. The second question Marigold asked us was whether we understood flowers. I didn’t. …Always thought there might be more to it, but the only person I’d ever seen think about it was Malal. …She was like that. Ten steps ahead and five feet deeper than anyone else in the room. I remembered Kong’s phone from other dreams – little flashes of using it, struggling with a diary app. Used to be Malal’s, see. Probably set it up with a bunch of riddle bullshit. Wouldn’t be surprised if she was still trying to cover asses from way past six feet under. Yeah. I had a better question than…flowers. Least I could do, after all the time we spent in shitty dives like this one, dragging our bosses’ drunk, bleeding bodies home together. When the Warmaster asked the third question, it was a threat. …So that’s how I asked it, too. I needed to know about her. About the Shieldmaiden, about the Blessed Lady’s Chosen One. …Needed to know if we were really just an offering for their moonlit blood-orgy hate date.(4/6)
A Mexican standoff is like sex. It’s amazing when it’s happening. …Then a few minutes afterward, it’s just messy and awkward. My knife cried out as it sunk into her throat, in that special way only a weapon you’ve got a long, dirty history with can. …I was impressed at her speed. Vindicares are usually slower up close. Usually just try to put some distance between you. She really was a Warmaster, and I couldn’t help but smile as her desert eagle took out most of my head.Wasn’t my first Vindicare Makeover in recent memory, and I could only hope it’d be my last. I could still feel it as I crashed into the jukebox, shorting the whole damn thing out. Everything was dark, and sort of wet, and the phantom pain I knew from my dreams overwhelmed my body. I tried to talk, but all that came out was a wet hiss, and as the air lightened around us, I knew she was gone.…I managed to push myself to my feet, and that was when the jukebox started to sputter....pillars in the night…I recognized Annie’s ringtone. Glanced around, though it didn’t do any good. Pretty sure another chunk of my brain fell out. It was a decidedly weird feeling, even for a dream.…guide your way…endless trial…(5/6)
>>24242032Ahaha, well, it's a possibility!And oh, thanks! There's an archive in suptg of all the threads too, if you want them. Thank you for your patronage, and I hope you had fun reading!
>>24241905>about that time, eh chaps.>righto.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questarchive is up!hope you fine, upstanding gentlemen like the description.
>>24242001>hfw that's already the case and this was the most loving thing we could untill that point.Hue, hue and a hue.
Always tempt your fate with luck and a smi-“Goddammit, how d’ya even answer this friggin’ thing?” Something soft under my head…and as I opened my eyes, I saw some big blobby looking thing with a ribbon - the design on one of Annie’s shirts. Seemed like she’d dressed down for a change.…Felt nice, just laying there. Still felt like my head had been blown off, in a distant, airy way. I rolled over a little so I wouldn’t have to look at the weird blob thing. Sounded like she was talking with Nakajima – I could hear her giggling at Annie swearing into the phone, and her voice. Guess they needed to talk about a trip to Siberia.Right at that moment, though, it was really hard to care. Knew I wasn’t going to fall back asleep, but I wanted to pretend a little while longer.-excerpt from Wendy Cooldown's dream diary
>>24242032As well as Sup/tg/, there's another archive of just MGNQ, http://magicalgirlnoir.com/It's not up to date though.
>>24242062Yes, suptg is indeed pretty awesome, but I just can't pass up the quote preview function on foolz.
>>24242062Dammit, the whole reason of sending Iori to the Lovelace Mansion was to protect her from us and of becoming a Magical Girl. We text her that we got her message and will meet her once important Officio business is done.
>>24242199Should we go over there and give her the speech?"With kindness comes naïveté. Courage becomes foolhardiness. Furthermore, dedication has no reward. If you can't accept any of that, you are not fit to be a Magical Girl."
>>24242078Pretty solid writing. Well done.
