You are a Magical Girl, and you're visiting a special someone in the sick bay floor of your Officio's main headquarters. That someone being none other than Hanegawa Midori herself, former Callidus of the Tenth and author of the Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi series (The Steamy Adventures of Miracle Melanie and Murder Marjorie in America). She's confessed her feelings to you twice - the first, right before a murderous, insane Goddess in Pink interrogated you before a flight. The second time was right before you and Kharn killed her best friend and her party of rabid, man-eating bears.It's an understatement to say that she likes you. It's not quite hero worship - you're the farthest thing from that - but something approaching it. From what she writes and draws about you, it could very well be defined as some sort of objectified lust, like how idols get yearned for by every male-shut in. Worshipped from a glowing LCD screen in the musty gloom of cavernous rooms, lotion and kleenex in hand.Yes, it could be defined as crassly as that, this...thing she has for you. This infatuation. This fetish.If not for the fact that she saved you from a nightmare she died in.
>>24781997If not for the fact that she jumped in, without a second thought, into an overlapping witch barrier that she had no hope of coming back from. Without being asked to. Without even considering what would happen if things went wrong, and they quite literally did.For all your faults, for all your complaints and whining and wallowing in self-pity - Midori loved you enough that she, quite willingly and without pause, traded in her life for yours. Never mind the fact that she came back, although you're not yet sure how she did. You saw her die, saw her corpse cradled by Tiny Pete, the grievous wounds she'd suffered. Heard her last words whispered through bleeding lips, asking if you were safe....Such a stupid girl, you think, as she smiles up at you from underneath the thick, comfortable blankets of her sickbed. You return her smile with a faint one of your own, and reach out to place a hand on hers.Stupid girl."It depends," you murmur after a moment, breaking the brief silence between the both of you. "...Does your dream involve 'The Steamy Adventures of Miracle Melanie and Murder Marjorie' in America being translated in a timely manner?"Midori's smile freezes momentarily at this, before her eyes slowly and quietly close. A quivering sigh escaping her lips."A-ahh...sempai, I, I think I'm still feeling a bit woozy from everything...I don't think I can answer your questions right now..." She says in an airy, breathy voice, as if mere moments from swooning.How do you respond?
>>24782001"Good to see you're alright. ...I was worried about you."
>>24782001Smile and hold her hand."It's alright. Get some rest. I'll come see you later."A kiss on the forehead before we leave should be appropriate.
>>24782001The anime adaptation. The translation.Please, Midori.Please make it stop.
>>24782001Too bad, I also wanted to ask whether you will want to drop by my new apartment and maybe even try out the Chair, but it can't be helped. Rest, then.
>>24782087Drop by? Shes gonna stay with us.
>>24782001"get some rest and don't worry about, your series has become quite popular, what with the anime adaptation and all..."keep from teasing to much, girl needs some serious bed rest.
>>24781997Tap Kharn-hat."Don't make me use this."
>>24782001"I'll hold you do that." Give her hand a squeeze "Just get some rest for now"
>>24782099Don't blow errything in one go. Leave some ammunition for later teasing.
>>24782062That boat's sailed, docked at a foreign harbor, unloaded it's cargo, and come back home for another load."We're going to talk about this later. I'm not going to let you off so easily... But rest up. And thank you."
>>24782128Not now, of course. We do it when we get her out of the sickbay."We're bringing you to your new apartment."
>>24782001"I will use the hat if you don't answer all of my questions, that thing holds a mighty power that I do not quite understand. If I put it on I think it projects an aura that turns me into Kharn 2.0. I'm just checking on you. I was worried. You feeling better? Do you need some more rest?"
>>24781997Put The Hat on her. Do it. You know you want to. Give in.
>>24782151Test it on Mami first.Midori is already Lewd. We might not leave the sickbay till lunch time.I will laugh my ass off if Mami lifts Chiaki's skirt.
>>24782192I can imagine Mami trying on the hat, freezing for 2min, blushing like a tomato, taking it off and excusing herself before running off. This still needs to happen.
>>24782192>implying chiaki wearing it won't cause every girl in the officio to lust for her
>>24782001Hmm, I'd been meaning to ask, did the link between our soul gems survive the Siberia arc and both soul gems' reconstructions? If so we could always send a bit of reassurance (or amusement) to her directly...
>>24782204And then try it on Kyoko.That one will not have any restraint. At all.
>>24782151>>24782192>>24782204I'm against unleashing the hat of untold evil up on our friends.but if it gets the most votes I'll resign to trying to fix the mess it will (probably) cause.
"I was just messing with you. I already told you it was fine, didn't I? How are you feeling. I was worried"
>>24782151You know what will happen
>>24782245Man, why is evil always synonymous with fun?
>>24782245Not if we do it in private or something.Say a house warming party?
>>24782259WHY DOES MAMI HAVE A TAIL?
>>24782265WHY DO YOU NOT
>>24782259Hello, Noir here. Making your grimdark sad and deep, but not without warmth, and thus less grimdark.
>>24782265Because she also has ears.
>>24782252Mami will lose an eye?
>>24782001Deadpan: You poor thing, get some rest. We'll talk about it when you're feeling better.Then kiss on the forehead.
>>24782338This. Then straiten up, put on our hat and leave the room. We do have a briefing to attend after all.
>>24782338This is pretty good.
>>24782385>put on our hatYou have no idea what you're doing or you know exactly what.
>>24782385We must have the hat
>>24782045 >>24782106 >>24782251Her trying to get out of this talk about her creative pursuits aside, you're...well, you're glad she's doing alright, and you say so quietly while patting her hand. This gentleness coming from you must have surprised her quite a bit, what with her eyes snapping open and her cheeks reddening. An almost alarmed look taking hold of her features, one she tries to hide by pulling her bedcovers nearly up to her eyes."I...I was just kidding, sempai. I wasn't really feeling all that faint earlier." Midori sheepishly says after a while, seemingly having composed herself. "The...the nurse says I just need to stay under observation until tomorrow morning, so I'll be discharged by then." She smiles at this, but falters a bit. "Um, about the translation--"You shake your head slightly. It's fine, you tell her. You did say you'd overlook it, back at the plane ride to Siberia. You were...just surprised about it having reached America, of all places."W-well, um. The publishing firm asked me if I was okay with them putting out official translated versions." Midori volunteers, worrying the hem of her bedcovers with fidgeting fingers. "It isn't just me, though. They're translating a lot of doujin series and bringing it over other countries. Mine was just one of the many." A pause in the lecture about porn comic intercontinental publishing, as she looks up at you. "...How did you find out about that, though, sempai?"...You tell her that a friend told you about it. Nothing more than that.You don't need to worry her about having strange dreams with sullen brown-haired girls who look like they need sleep badly. Not right now, anyway."Al...alright, sempai. If you say so." She nods. "U-um. I know it's really embarrassing for you, sempai. I really am sorry about it."You shake your head again, letting yourself smile again this time. ...Twice in one morning. Strange.[1/2]
>>24782518You hesitate for just a brieef second, before you lean down to place a small kiss on Midori's forehead. the gesture, one you're not used to giving at all, seems to surprise her yet again, making her squeak and go completely red at the same time."S-sempai..." She murmurs at this, sounding horribly vulnerable and scared. You try to ignore this, and tell her to get some rest. You'll pick her up tomorrow when she's discharged and everything.Midori could only nod in response, and you leave the room as quietly as you've entered it. Giving Midori a small wave as you do so, the Warmaster Cap still underneath your arm.. . .It's probably a good thing you took it off before meeting Midori.You're not too sure what would've happened if you did.Well, anyway. You need to get to Kyuubey's Office. Report in for the day and all that, see what kind of Warmastering's in store for you.You hope it's not about paperwork.You could do without it, thank you very much.Proceed as you are to Kyuubey's Office.Equip the Warmaster Cap. Look the part, at least for today. Maybe this morning was just a fluke.Stuff the godforsaken thing in your inventory.
>>24782527>Proceed as you are to Kyuubey's Office.
>>24782527[X]Equip the Warmaster Cap.Surely it was just people hearing about the blue rose thing, right?
>>24782527[X] Equip the Warmaster Cap. Look the part, at least for today. Maybe this morning was just a fluke.We need to cut a properly dashing figure.
>>24782527>Equip the Warmaster Cap. Look the part, at least for today. Maybe this morning was just a fluke.IT MUST BE WORN, IT HUNGERS FOR A SEAT
>>24782527equip the hat, proceed to become the boss.
>>24782527[X] Equip WARMASTER CAP[X] Proceed to Kyuubey's OfficeWhat's the worst that can happen?
>>24782527>Equip the Warmaster Cap. Look the part, at least for today. Maybe this morning was just a fluke.It was probably a fluke.
>>24782527>Equip the Warmaster Cap. Look the part.
>>24782527>Equip hat>Go to Kyuubey>Try not to molest too many magical girls on the way
>>24782527[x] Proceed as you are.Is the hat really that big a deal?
>>24782527>Proceed as you are to Kyuubey's Office.we're already dragging it with us, but since most people will probably vote otherwise, at least wait with putting in on until we reach his office.
>>24782001"I'm not sure if you're dodging or not, but in either case, it's good to see you're alright." Commence comforting hand pat.
>>24782527[x] proceed as isI get the feeling faust is staring.
>>24782527>Equip>ProceedI'm dying to see Mami's reaction to this thing,even if she's immune to the Karn-field.
>>24782527>Proceed as you are to Kyuubey's Office.Businessmen.
>>24782527>You're not too sure what would've happened if you did.Increased the age requirement of the Quest, that's what.
>>24782632"So, how are your panties, on a scale of one to Niagra?"
>>24782527[x]Proceed as we are to meet Qubes.
>>24782527>[X] To coobieWe need to show him the hat's deleterious effects. by putting it on him
>>24782797And that's how QBxMami became canon.
>>24782827Well, at least I managed to turn my head before the spit take...
>>24782827Hey, QB has done it with everyone!
>>24782537 >>24782538 >>24782556...It's just a hat. That's all it is. A symbol of rank and office. Nothing but cloth and whatever the stiff brim is made out of. Maybe some shiny metal bits here and there. But it's just a hat, nothing more and nothing less. Whatever happened earlier, it was just a fluke and nothing more.You briefly run a palm over your scalp to smooth out your hair, before equipping the Warmaster's Cap once more. Tugging down at the sides to ensure a firm fit. Yes, you were never really much for headgear, but you're Warmaster, now. Wearing this is probably in the rules about being a Warmaster, somewhere, and you'd like to appear to be a proper one, at least for now. Not because of any misplaced zeal on following the rules now that you're elevated to such a rank, of course - but because you just don't want to disappoint the one person who wanted you to be Warmaster. You didn't want to let the one person whose wish was for you to have authority over more than a thousand Magical Girls.Disappointing Tomoe Mami has never been an option. Even if the number of times you've done so in the past is on the wrong side of hilarious.You make your way back to the elevator without any other incident. ...The sick bay's medical staff doesn't seem to be affected by the hat any, which is somewhat of a relief. Of course, they could just be much too busy to take notice. Yes, that's the reason why they're not noticing you at the moment....Wait, why are you trying to make yourself feel better? You're supposed to be relieved that you're not getting attention. What the hell is wrong with you?Before you could answer that, however, the elevator doors open just as you come to it - and after the medical staff pour out of it, you see no one else but the two people you've spent a bit of this morning talking to. None other than Eversors Miki Sayaka and Sakura Kyoko, both of them already transformed. [1/2]
>>24783000"Oh, hey, look who's here early!" Kyoko is the first to greet you, all smiles and energy, showing you just how much of a morning person she is. Sayaka seems to be surprised as well, blinking a few times, as if unable to believe what she's seeing. "Man, it's strange to see you in the office at this time, Murderface! We usually see you, like, three hours later or something!"You mumble your morning greetings to the both of them as you step into the elevator, making you and the couple the only ones occupying the lift. Awkward elevator rides, nice. You turn to the floor buttons, and it's then that you notice that they're going up to the Incubator's Sanctum, just like you are."...Someetimes not at all, really," Sayaka says finally, and this time you're surprised to hear the same weary, tired loathing in her tone that you hear in yours whenever it's morning. "I guess that also explains why everyone was murmuring something about the Ninth finally having another Warmaster." A pause. "...Is that allowed, Matsuda? You're not ratified yet, aren't you? How come you're wearing that stupid hat?" "Aw, she's pretty much warmaster now, isn't she? Murderface can do what she likes, she's the boss now. Right, Murderface?" You didn't need to turn around to see Kyoko's grin as she nudged you with an elbow. How do you respond?Yeah. I do what I like.It's just a hat. Just seeing how it is.Don't you feel anything...weird coming on?
>>24783005[x] It's just a hat. And a gift.
>>24783005[x] It's just a hat. Just seeing how it is.
>>24783005>Yeah. I do what I like.Ain't no lack of ceremony stopping me.
>>24783005[x] its just a hat[x] equip hat on kyoko.
>>24783005[X]It's just a hat. Just seeing how it is."Sayaka, it's a hat, a rather nice hat but it's just a hat. Besides, I may as well get used to wearing it given that I'm pretty much Warmaster, just need to finalize the paperwork.And it's not stupid, it carries with it a mystical aura that I can not hope to truly understand."
>>24783005>It's just a hat. Just seeing how it is.we're in control, everything is fine!
>>24783005[X]It's just a hat. Just seeing how it is.[X]By the way, and this is completely incidental and unrelated to anything, but do you feel anything...weird coming on?
>>24783005>It's just a hat. Just seeing how it is.We will deny it's hold on us at every turn.
>>24783057This is a terrible idea, and I support it.
>>24783005>[x]Yeah. I do what I like."You better get to memorising reward ceremonies because I am not going to be there."
>>24783026Seconding this, though it'll probably end up with the Hat-on-Kyouko option. Get the Damage Control teams primed up!
>>24783057I'm against putting it on someone else's head.
>>24783057Image very much related >>24782132I approve.
>>24783005[x]"It's just a hat. One of you want to try it on?"
Betting it doesn't work on them since they're already in love with each other.They have no eyes for other girls, no matter how magically sexy.
>>24783129Kyouko only has eye for Sayaka.
>>24783130That still won't stop Blueberry from trying to shank us for magically prompting her fiancee to sex her up in front of one of the few people whose guts she hates.
>>24783141Just steal the hat back before it goes that far. Problem solved.
>>24783129The MAXIMUM CHRISTMAS special revealed even Kyouko's not completely infallible in that regard.
>>24783129>>24783130>>24783168Its a one night stand hat. Not an NTR hat.
>>24783156Yeah, but the damage is already done. She hates us more, which as one of the best Eversors in the Officio, is not something Chiaki as a Warmaster needs.Call me paranoid.
>>24783129Well, perhaps, but the things they will do with each other still justify this action as quite awesome.
>>24783175>Implying those two things never overlap
>>24783175Why can't it be the NTR hat ? whyyyyy.
>>24783196Because you picked up fetish that is generally frowned upon. So attempts to "share" it's "joys" with others are doomed to fail. Hopefully.
>>24783234Threesomes never work as well as they do in the hentai's.
FINALLY! After several missed threads, finally I'm participating in one again!For shame Anon, you guys know very well that there is only one way to deal with Pinky, which probably involves friendzoning Midori.
>>24783196If we had an NTR hat, we'd be saving it for Mami instead of wasting it on these two non-Mami characters.
Yeah. I do what I like.
>>24783258Pinky didn't murder Midori immediately after figuring out where her feelings lay, and even said she'd beat her fair and square. Which is why the door has been opened to a threesome ship.
>>24783000It's just a hat. Nothing out of the ordinary.
>>24783057If its gonna work, its gonna work on the one with the least inhibitions.
>>24783281So we need to time stop, say good morning and all that.
>>24783005Combine the three: It's just a hat and I felt like wearing it. You'd think it was some kind of aphrodisiac with how people have been acting.
>>24783258We need to put the hat on pinkyThat will sort her out
>>24783281>>24783304>"Don't worry, I didn't do anything to her," The pink-haired girl suddenly snaps at you, and you realize that you'd been staring at Midori for far too long. "I'm not that kind of person, Homura-chan. Sure, I'd pull apart anyone who wanted to steal you from me, but she helped me, too. So I'm going to fight fair with her, at least where you're concerned."Pinky is going to try to get Midori killed in the physical world and then she will have a big speech about "You can't save anyone Homura-chan. I am going to destroy everything you love until you realise that the only person you should love. Is me"
>>24783336Pretty sure that may start a freight train towards a bad end.
>>24783345Sex her up then.Or timestop and pull Midori in as well.
>>24783351Or bullet train to the best end ( also probably a bad end )
>>24783351Put the hat on her in a crowded room then run for it. She'll find a new girl to fixate on and the problem will be solved. We can stay friends with her though, and one day we'll look back on these days and laugh. Maybe.
>>24783389Or she stops being coy about it and just full on rapes Chiaki.Either way the problem will be solved
>>24783389But why?Watermelon End is a good goal.
Put the hat on QB. Hilarity ensues
>>24783057You shrug at this. You tell them that it's really just a hat, nothing more. You're just seeing how it's like to wear it. If it's against the rules somehow, you'll stop wearing it, but no one's reported you so far, so you're just going to coast along and see where it takes you. ...Not that you're expecting it to take you anywhere, it's just a goddamn hat, after all. Just. A normal. Fucking. Hat."Alright, alright. Christ. Calm down." Sayaka snaps, but her heart's not really in it. "...I'll say, though, and don't take this the wrong way, but you pull it off better than Kharn did. Fits you better. Although, it'd probably look a whole lot better if you took care of your hair length, because that's just really unreasonable long..."This time, you turned around. ...Did she just give you a compliment?"I-I told you not to take it the wrong way, didn't I? Fuck's sake, Matsuda, can't you listen for a--" Blueberry snaps again, this time with more vigor, and just a bit of red tingeing her cheeks. She cuts herself off before she can continue, though, seemingly remembering that Kyoko's in the elevator with you. "...Sorry." She finally says, letting her breath out in a hiss. "Not really fond of...mornings.""Yeah, she's not fond of them at all," Kyoko grins, looping an arm around Mickey Blueberry's waist. "So she's gonna be a bit bitchier, Murderface, until she's had her coffee milkshake or somethin', that kinda coffee you order from that posh coffee place downstairs. After a couple of those, she's only gonna worry at your neck instead of biting your head off right through.""Shut up. I just like good coffee." Sayaka grumbles, seemingly trying to push Kyoko off but not exactly. As far as you can tell, it's just that she's only trying to make it look like it.[1/2]
Weren't we trying to be professional now?
>>24783466Couples, you murmur underneath your breath. You make to turn back around as the elevator ride continues - but you stop as a sudden idea hits you. You pull off the Warmaster Cap with one hand, and then hold it out to Kyoko. She blinks her one good eye at you, then at the hat, and then back to you again."Eh? What's up, Murderface? Yeah, I know, it's a pretty cool hat."Yeah. You want to see how she looks like wearing it."Huh? what for?"...Science.Sayaka narrows her eyes at you for a second, as if trying to figure out just what exactly you're planning, but she seems to capitulate, shrugging. "...Yeah, you know what? I'd like to see how you look like with it, too. Red and black's pretty stylish.""Ehh. But...well, I dunno," Kyoko seems to hesitate here. "It doesn't feel right. Only Warmasters are supposed to wear it, right? Kinda wrong for me to try it on like I'm gonna buy it or something."She doesn't need to worry, you tell her. You're here, and you allow it. Sayaka allows it."Eh. Well. If you say so." The Eversor takes the hat with one hand, and then reaching up with the other to pull off her ribbon. Her long red hair, now free, cascades down her back in scarlet ripples, easily longer than yours. "Gah, now I gotta tie it back again later, that's such a drag...""I'll help you with that," Sayaka urges her on, suddenly as eager as you are. "Just put the damn thing on already!""Okay, okay! Jeez, what's gotten into you both..." There's a moment as she fumbles with the hat, before managing to finally put it on.There's a full second of motionless silence before you have to avert your eyes at the sight of two Eversors doing something at the corner of the elevator that should really be done behind closed doors. Or at least, somewhere private."S-Sayaka...! W-what's going on--mmph!" Kyoko barely manages to gasp, before her blue-haired life partner attacks her again.[2/3]
>>24783478...Jesus. Sorry, Kyoko. You didn't mean to do that.Spend the rest of the elevator ride in awkward, uncomfortable silence.Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.Take a picture.
>>24783483[x] Be awkward.MAXIMUM HOMURA
>>24783483[x] Take a picture.Now that we're a bit more Homura, we can be a bit more of a troll too.
>>24783483[x]Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.Science successful. Hat is possessed.
>>24783483>[x]Take a picture.>[x]Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.In that order.
>>24783483>Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.>Take a picture.
>>24783483Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.[X] Spend the rest of the elevator ride in awkward, uncomfortable silence.>>24783478>>24783141Fucking called it.
>>24783483>Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.I knew this would happen.
>>24783483>Take a picture.
>>24783483Take a pictureThen send a copy to Sayaka and Kyouko's phones and wait the rest of the ride in silence
>>24783478Huh. Theories suggested Kyoko was supposed to be the one attacking, not Sayaka. Clearly, we must investigate this further.
>>24783517>Fucking called it.Sayaka allowed it, and Kyoko too, how can the beautiful blue girl be mad at us ? They are touching each other all the time anyway
>>24783483>Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.Snatch Hat. Apologize. "Hypothesis continues to be supported by evidence."
>>24783483>[x]Spend the rest of the elevator ride in awkward, uncomfortable silence.
>>24783483>Take a picture.>Snatch the hat off before more damage is done.Evidence inconclusive, further testing required with different samples.
>>24783466>>24783478I think the most telling part of the hats power is it made Sayaka tsundere instead of outright bitch at ChiakiThat is a lot of power
>>24783560whose bra is that ?
>>24783543Hmm. It appars that in addition to the first observed effect of makign the wearer hornier and less inhibited, it also causes the wearer to become exponentially more attractive to other people, to the point where people already close and/or attracted lose inhibitions with regard to public affection.Basically, it makes the wearer scream sexy and actually want that sex too.
>>24783483>Spend the rest of the elevator ride in awkward, uncomfortable silence.Then> Snatch off hat before the lift door opens.
>>24783483Spend the rest of the elevator ride in awkward, uncomfortable silence.But warn them when we're close. Sayaka will kill us if we cut her Kyouko-funtimes short.
>>24783504Oh, I've got a better idea.[x] Take Picture[x] Remove Hat"Sorry, there's something wrong with this hat and I needed some proof. I may need to ask Kyubey to have it replaced."
>>24783483Again, all three. MAXIMUM HOMU
>>24783591This. Also?[x] Stop time.[x] Put hat on Pinky
>>24783580Now reimagine that scene downstairs.Of hundreds of salerymen and women thinking of gang raping Chiaki
>>24783640Do we need to?She wants Chiaki, already.
>>24783641well that's a disturbing though
Oh shit I managed to catch one running.Decu I made you something. I hope you know http://textsfromwalpurgisnight.tumblr.com/
We should try scratching the metal parts, see if there is a glint of gold underneath the paint. This thing is a weapon.
>>24783546I'm only half-right, the shanking part I cannot be sure of.
>>24783478take that hat.
>>24783483Snatch the hat off...Then put it on SayakaWe require further testing of this hypothesis before we go making any assumptions
>>24783483[x]Uncomfortable silence. We no longer have the hat, and we're too spaghetti to snatch it out of someone's makeout session.
>>24783580>It appears that in addition to the first observed effect of making the wearer hornier and less inhibited, it also causes the wearer to become exponentially more attractive to other people, to the point where people already close and/or attracted lose inhibitions with regard to public affection.Right. Now imagine the consequences of putting the hat on in the same room as recovered Midori.Wait, scratch that. Don't imagine it. Make. It. Happen.
>>24783888After we show her our new apartment, if ever.
>>24783888"And I will leave my hat on"*Stare*
>>24783923Should we have Midori stay with us? Does she even have a place to stay, since she's been tagging along with us or in hospital ever since we hired her.I mean it's not like we're using the bedroom when we've got our chair.She can be our live-in assistant/secretary/wife.
>>24783927Someone get on this.
>>24783942I don't think she has a home. I'm surprised we don't have a spare room in our appartment.
>>24783948Her parents are still alive, and part of her pay goes to them to help the family restaurant.
>>24783948She assumedly has a home given she has living family.Even if she moved out and just went back to help out with their store she probably has her own quarters somewhere with Coobie.Not that it will stop us from changing that if we want
>>24783942>>24783948Sorry, when I mean "our", I mean that it isn't just Chiaki who will be staying. Should've used "their" instead, my bad.We have to be careful about rumors though, especially the possible ramifications. Whatever they may be.
>>24783959>>24783965I get the impression she hasn't lived at home since becoming a magic girl, is what I mean. Probably against the rules or something.
>>24783979I don't see why it would be against the rules but she may well have moved out since she was doing dodgy work and writing / drawing a porn series.And I don't care who you are doing that shit under your parents roof would just be too awkward
>>24783979>>24784009Or, you know, being a Magical Girl and all. It's not exactly a "clean" job.
>>24784009Given the jobs she seemed to have been dumped with, I think she'd have probably been moved to some shithole apartment to keep her family at a distance from the horribly shady shit she'd been forced to do.Given that her flashbacks in the witch-barrier ramen shop seemed to be a bit more retrospective than someone who'd been living there less than a week ago, I get the feeling it's been a while since she was home.
>>24783554You step forward and all but tear off the hat from Kyoko's head before the scene could get any more compromising. While you still don't exactly care for Sayaka - and the feeling is indeed mutual, even if you've come to an agreement of sorts earlier - you do care what happens to Kyoko, and other people seeing her playing tongue hockey with Blueberry isn't something she needs at the moment....Even without the hat, Sayaka is still on the offensive. It's only after a few more moments - a few more floors - that she seems to finally come to her senses, disengaging from a tearful, weak-kneed Kyoko who looked as if she'd been the unfortunate victim of something dreadful involving faceless men and rampant mosaics. She seems to be winded, even, trying to catch her breath while Sayaka isn't even breathing hard."I...S-sorry, Kyoko, I..." the blue-haired Eversor begins to stammer, as if only just now realizing what she'd done. Her own hair in disarray, and what appears to be lip gloss smeared all over her mouth."I...I saw you with the hat on, and I couldn't help myself, and--" It's then that she rounds on you just as you're putting the damnable headgear back onto yourself. "--You! What the hell did you do with that hat? That's some sort of prank, isn't it? You did something to it, right?"...You didn't do a damn thing to the hat. You just got it from Kharn. You are, however, pleased to report that the hypothesis continues to be supported by evidence."...What hypothesis? What evidence? The hell are you doing, Matsuda?!" Both Sayaka's hands come up to grab fistfuls of your collar - but she's suddenly pulled back by her own cape, right back into Kyoko's arms, which are then used to pin her to the wall of the elevator. She has a moment to squeak, before the red-haired Eversor's retaliation occurs."N-no, Kyoko, come on...! Matsuda's right there-mmph...!"You pull out your smartphone and take a picture here. And another. And another.[1/2]
>>24784139At least being Warmaster doesn't seem like it'll be boring.. . .A bit more time later, you find yourself standing in the Incubator's Sanctum. The floor, wall and ceiling panels displaying what looks like a bird's eye view of an ocean, centered on what looks like some sort of oil drilling platform or something. You're not sure what it is, but it's a series of huge metal platforms interconnected to each other. Some sort of above-sea military installation?Kyuubey is there, sitting on his chair as usual. Mami, in her office lady trappings - looking quite the part of a very rich CEO's secretary - stands beside the mutant cat's desk, three envelopes in her hands."Ah, Matsuda. Miki. Sakura. Very nice of you to finally come." You cough discreetly at this, and both Sayaka and Kyoko shoot you a look, miffed and embarrassed, respectively. "While I'm pleased that Matsuda is making an effort to show up on time, I'll have to remind you both, Miki, Sakura, that as my two top Eversors, you have an image to uphold. Please, no more public displays of affection in the office premises. I will have to dock your pay if I'm informed of this again."Both Sayaka and Kyoko look at each other, before nodding at Kyuubey. "Y-yes, sir.""Good. Now, Matsuda." Kyuubey turns toward you, and you feel those unnerving crimson eyes looking you up and down. Focusing on the hat on your head before moving somewhere else. "As Warmaster, you're now permanently on the active roster. This means, of course, that you will be required to take a certain number of missions every month, but you can also delegate these missions to other squads of your choosing. Some missions will be for you alone, and I will make sure that these are brought to your attention." He pauses after a moment. "This also means that you will have access to our stock of Grief Seeds. You can requisition up to three per mission. Any additional ones will have to be approved."[2/3]
>>24784144You nod at this. At least you won't have to work for them anymore, so that's okay."Excellent. Now, before we begin, is there anything you'd like to ask at this point in time?" Kyuubey tilts its head slightly, looking at you.What do you ask?
>>24784036Given jyuubey's general treatment of her I think she would have moved herself out to avoid the repercussions to her family.The little shit seemed happy enough to toss her to the wolves and only started caring once she turned up alive and on another incubators payrollAlso the flashbacks may have just been to before she was a magical girl because that was both relevant ( her seeing Malal ) and a memory of a safer time which was something that the ramen shop seemed to be made forWe have no real information on whether she continued to help out there in her time off from being a magical girl and manga creator
>>24784139>something dreadful involving faceless men and rampant mosaicsPlease Decu I just ate I'm too full to laugh.
>>24784152point out that the two Eversors display was largely our fault.and that we'll take responsibility for this one incident.
>>24784139>>24784144>>24784152Lets be blunt: "Does our abundance of Grief-Seeds have something to do with the thing chained up in Kamchatka?"
>>24784152"Compulsory missions aside, I presume we're going to be continuing this investigation of the golden weapon business in the meantime?"
>>24784211Do it. Let's call out the mutant cat on his schemes.
>>24784211Change it to 'that thing in Kamchatka?' since chained up might be a bit too much information for the Eversors in the room.
>>24784188Yes, this one. I like it.
Did we ever give that skull thing from Malal to the Culexus? I think we should get on that. And the whole Prophet thing. Given both of these are a bit down the road.
>>24784188This. Also add in the effects of wearing said hat and the topic of our Aide(s).
>>24784152Request that blueberry and her partner become our official aides, between them we have a very good support team and advisors for almost any situation a warmaster could find themselves inAlso ask about the happenings in the officio since we went to Siberia, if we are to be the warmaster we should act like one and know the current state of our charge
>>24784185>rampant mosaicsStill confused by this part. Shine a light?
>>24784234read any censored hentai lately?
>>24784234Japanese porn censoring.
>>24784234It's a reference to censorship in porn.
>>24784152Request a brief overview of major events that happened during our stay in Siberia. When is our official Warmaster ratification going to occur?
>>24784234>>24784240>>24784246>>24784248My little anon can't be this pure.
>>24784224>>24784223>>24784211I think the topic at all is on the Down low until QB explicitly approves it.
>>24784152We should ask about that thing in Kamchatka, definitely, but it might not be a bad idea to bring up the Prophet right away, too.
>>24784152I have heard certain rumors from a trusted source about a Prophet working against our Officio. Any comments or info?
>>24784211>>24784223>>24784224No, let's do it when we're alone with QB. That thing is supposed to be classified, and not even we were supposed to have access to it.
>>24784262The thing in Kamchatka is classified though. Kharn wasn't willing to discuss it with the Warmaster in training, so that's definitely above Kyouko and Sayaka, maybe even Mami. We should mention wanting to talk about it though. Definitely bring the Prophet though. Oh, and about those VIPs that Kyouko mentioned a few threads back.
>>24784259>>24784280Alright, but when we're safe away from QB's ears I'll vote for telling the others.
>>24784258Not used to it being called mosaic. Like I said, I got the faceless men bit.If anything, I'm more used to small, unobtrusive black or white lines.
>>24784152>>24784152"I would like you to investigate Jyubey`s Interest in Midori Hanegawa and Mami Tomoe. With Midori`s help I managed to identify that the girl I killed in Mami-sans apartment way back was one of Jyubey`s Girls. Yuuri Asuka. Another one, Wakaba Mirai, who was sent to retrieve Midori was killed by me and Kharn in Sibiri and I find it hard to believe that there is connection between those two things."
>>24784294>safe away from QB's ears>Implying he can't listen in via soulgemHe caught the elevator shenanigans, after all.
>>24784294And I'll vote against it. I don't see any good coming from telling them about Walpurgisnacht.
>>24784317Agreed, I don't think they need to know something like that. It's a huge Officio secret for a reason.
>>24784152Can I optain a compete list of all magical girls listed for active duty in this offico?Also "do I get an office?"
>>24784317>>24784331I have a feeling that they'll find out sooner or later, all these goings on are connected somehow.
Ask Kyuubey about the secrets in the Siberia base.
>>24784313That can be explained by security cameras. Or the two of them didn't stop before the ride was over.Actually, the image of elevator opening with Warmaster Chiaki at the door and Red&Blue vigorously making out in the background would sure be sight to see.Drawfags, pls?
>>24784352>Also "do I get an office?"Mami mentioned that one beforehand, IIRC.
>>24784331Actually I think they should know about some things ASAP. Mainly: - Pinky is probably our fault and we will need to deal with her, one way or another. We should only reveal it though, if we think we have better chances of dealing with her with their help. Also, Pinky`s true name is Kaname Madoka. Ask Kyubey why he lied.- Jyubey can use his girls as suicide bombers. We killed one of the Saints and there is a fat chance that there is some shit brewing and the rest of the Saints will come after us.- Jyubes uncanny Interest in Midori- The dead Meguca/Witch in Mami`s Aparment. - Talk to Midori about stuff that happened in the Barrier. We need Chiaki to be on the same level of knowledge about the things that happened in the barrier as Midori. Without that we cannot enter the "Help Pinky"-Route.
So by the evidence we've collected, Sayaka was completely under the hat's control.Strangely enough, Kyoko was NOT affected. I can attribute her attacking Sayaka as due to being turned on after Blueberry put the moves on her.God Damn, this is a mind control hat and seems to appears that only culexus and those who can do the soul gem communication thingie are immune to it, since this appears to be the only real quality that separates Kyoko from other magical girls. This means the hat will also not work on QB.Furthermore if we extrapolate to the max with the added side info we obtained from the Christmas Special and Kharn's side story and that Malal made this hat... theres a possibility we might have Culexus soul hiding in that damn thing.
>>24784405Jyubey is only interested in Midori because of the profit her manga/anime is turning
>>24784405All of this when the opportunity presents itself.Maybe a house warming party so that we can tell everyone at once?
>>24784405Pinky didn't lie about Madoka, in this universe she was Kaneda Madoka and became Malal.So the name Kaname Madoka probably meant absolutely nothing since at the most it was some completely unrelated girl or at worst he suspected some connection between her and Faust
>>24784405These, I do agree with. I just don't think we need to start spilling Waluigi's existence to everybody we know.
>>24784405>Ask Kyubey why he lied.Except he didn't.He didn't know Faust's real name; how could he, when he and his kind are timeline-limited.
>>24784415The fact that Kyouko can pulse probably means she is borderline Culexus.Which does explain why she was unaffected by the hat as was Malal
>>24784211Vote for this, but lets do it in alone with QB
>>24784453Culexus are the most pure magic girls.
>>24784453This makes a hell of a lot of sense.
>>24784468>looks at Yuma's hug pillow.
>>24784486Oh yeah. Well there goes that idea.
>>24784453Exactly what I'm getting at.If we can test it out when we meet Yuma, we can confirm this theory.
>>24784468Unfortunately, probably true, given that they can't engage non-Culexus lichbians for sexytimes
>>24784486>>24784505But what if she genuinely thinks it's just for hugging when you feel lonely?
>>24784516She can have tortoise sexy times.
>>24784529>tortoise sexy timesI...what?No, boner, go away. Nobody called for you, and you're just going to end up horribly confused.
>>24784522From the christmas special>"The cake shop's a floor up, while the Women's Underwear section is on this floor. Want me to buy the cake for you while you pick out what kind of garnish you'll be having for dessert later?"I dunno...
>>24784211we should wait until we are alone before we ask kubey about that. we should however, ask about our current relationship with with the 8th and 10th officios
>>24784552I need a sauce for this.Like right now.
>>24784453But building on that train of thought Mami resisted the effects as well, as did MurderfaceNow there is a decent case for Murderface resisting the effects since she was basically nothing but a seething ball of hatred with a fixation on Mami but the pancake goddess herself must have had something up her sleeve to resist the effects
>>24784552What the hell?
>>24784566Sorry, saved it from a thread on /a/ ages ago that was full of stuff like that. No idea where it's from.
>>24784486>implying that having a waifu is impure>implying you would ever have lewd thoughts about youre waifu>implying you would ever NTR youre waifu with some 3DPD slut
>>24784556It may also be prudent to ask about how QB's Officio stands with the rest. While Jyubey was probably exaggerating about how hated he was, it may not be complete bullshit; QB seems to be a bit of a maverick, as far as incubators go.
>>24784572Murderface wanted MamiMami was already dating some unspecified male when she entered the Witches' realm to save Chiaki.It appears that having an individual that you hold affection for helps focus the person and keep them on the ground.
>>24784601Stupid sexy Kyouko.
>>24784601There's still this though:>>24784378
>>24784601Is your power back on?
>>24784612>QB seems to be a bit of a maverick, as far as incubators go.See, the funny thing is that QB said that Jyubey was considered a bit of a rogue among the Incubators. And the fact that nothing happened to the Third, even though he went completely native and abandoned the Puella energy farming operation, really brings into question just what the Incubators are here for.
>>24784626Yep. First thing that greeted me when the power came back on was: "Hat, you gotta draw this!" so I started work on it as quickly as possible.
>>24784605>3DPDDare I ask?
>>24784646Perhapse they are both rogues, but in different ways.
>>247846593d pig disgusting. /a/ speak for real women.
>>24784673>Implying pigs aren't incredibly sexy>Implying you wouldn't love to be dominated by a wild boar
>>24784648I'm glad that you didn't just reply with a "no" to my message then
>>24784686Dear /d/,I know we are usually on good terms with each other, but you are on your own with this one.Sincerly,/tg/.
>>24784716This guy gets it.
>>24784747You are doing god's work.
>>24784566google it=instant sauce, no water needed
>>24784763Believe it or not google is actually really bad with finding a single panel of a page and giving you the name as a result
Somehow we have to get in a situation where Kyouko wears a shark suit. Who is with me?
>>24784840You have my sword.
>>24784840>>24784847And my axe.
>>24784840and my bow
>>24784840That's adorable, but you're not getting my hat.
>>24784840Only if it's a shark suit with a dildo.
>>24784840They will find my body in a few days, hands clutched to my chest with this picture open nearbyThat's how goddamn cute this picture is
>>24784877Do sharks have penises?I know dolphins do, but sharks are actual fish and thus breed fucking weirdly.
>>24784892Yes they do, some breeds even have two penises
>>24784892Sharks practice internal fertilization. The posterior part of a male shark's pelvic fins are modified into a pair of intromittent organs called claspers, analogous to a mammalian penis, of which one is used to deliver sperm into the femaleWikipedia, but good enough for me.
>>24784892It has double penis.
>>24784892Yes. Though some species of sharks don't need sex to give birth.
>>24784892>>24784908>>24784911>>24784918>>24784919/tg/ - Shark genetalia experts

>>24785196Blu Rays and DVDs of what, homura?
>>24784211 >>24784259 >>24784188You think for a second, before shaking your head. You have questions of your own, yes, but nothing that can't wait until later. Just some things about Siberia that you'd like clarified, but you'll just wait until there's a more convenient time to."...Yes. I understand. Perhaps later." Kyuubey nods, seemingly getting what you meant. At least, he looked like he did, despite his feline countenance not really changing at all. You'd also like to inform him that the...display involving Miki Sayaka and Sakura Kyoko was your fault, so you'll be taking responsibility for this particular instance."Well. This is another surprise." The Incubator blinks, turning to look at Mami, who simply smiles and covers her mouth with the envelopes. "Punctuality and accountability in the same day. I admit, I was waiting for you to turn your promotion into an international diplomatic disaster, Matsuda, but I'm impressed so far." He swivels his gaze towards Sayaka and Kyoko. "Your Warmaster has decided to excuse you this one time, and I thus retract my warning. Just please, try to behave when you're at work."Kyoko seems to be relieved at this, while Sayaka seems to be internally struggling whether to be grateful or angry."Right. Now that's all settled. Tomoe Mami, please give the Warmaster this week's mission lineup." Kyuubey's chair swivels around to face the giant screens at the far end of the room, and Mami steps forward to give you the envelopes she'd been holding earlier. All three of them are standard Officio dossier envelopes - the sort secured closed with looped string. As you receive the envelopes, your fingers touch for the briefest moment - and it's then that Mami leans close to you, close enough that you can smell the honey-scent of her hair, the milk-scent of her skin..."...You look very dashing with the hat on, Chiaki-san." She whispers this into your ear, her warm silken breath tickling your earlobe. [1/2]
>>24785281You're not given to displays of embarrassment at all, but you're sure that your cheeks are burning red at the moment. It...it feels like you've tied the ribbon securing your collar together a bit too tightly at that.Mami leans back and winks at you, as if she'd done nothing out of the ordinary, before walking smoothly back to Kyuubey's side. You...couldn't help but notice how the back of her pencil skirt shifted interestingly as she returned to her place beside the Incubator's desk."Three missions for this week, Matsuda." Kyuubey's chair swivels again, this time to face you. "Two of them you can delegate to any active squad in any rank, one of them you'll have to carry out yourself. One in particular is an off-shore assignment, but the projected operation time is a day at the most, and six hours at the minimum."Huh. Well. That's interesting.Can you open and read them before you pick, anyway?"Of course. Go ahead."You do so, and you read through each of them in turn.First Envelope: Smash and Grab. Off-shore. A small kill-team of three Magical Girls is to be sent into a remote over-sea laboratory and research facility near Singapore. The client wishes that certain items from the facility be retrieved. Leaving the facility intact is not required. Second Envelope: Escort Mission. One of the most popular idols currently in circulation today, Kirishima Ruri, requires a Magical Girl escort for her weekend concert in Mitakihara. No danger seems imminent, but she is specifically asking to 'have a good time' with the Warmaster of the Ninth.Third Envelope: Search and Recover. An important client's daughter has been missing, suspected kidnapped. He's requesting that she be found as soon as possible. Last sighting was in Mitakihara Mall, three weeks ago."Well? Which one do you undertake, and which do you delegate to the squads of your choosing?"How do you respond?
>>24785298Not sure if I'm just being paranoid but that second envelope could be a trap
>>24785298>[x] Second EnvelopeThis seems to be asking specifically for us, so I'm not sure we should leave it to other people. On the other hand, it could be some famous girl trying to get a magical booty call, and we don't need more idol trouble.Third envelope should probably be left to Callidus, first we could probably send a small, skilled Eversor squad and get good results.
>>24785281>As you receive the envelopes, your fingers touch for the briefest moment - and it's then that Mami leans close to you, close enough that you can smell the honey-scent of her hair, the milk-scent of her skin...>"...You look very dashing with the hat on, Chiaki-san."We're keeping the hat. On-topic, the missions seem interesting and I'm having a hard time choosing..
>>24785298Details.WHAT ITEMS.WHO was kidnapped?If said Item is a weapon of some sort, that assignment is for us.
>>24785298"Sayaka, Kyoko and I will under take the first mission.""As for the second, since I have been personally asked for, it would be rude not to.""The third mission shall be delegated to a retrieval expert squad."
>>24785298tempting to pick the second optionThe first seems too suited to what we want to do so it will probably be a trap and the third would be a pain because investigation work sucksThe second is just asking for trouble though I get the feeling it is a setup from the saintsI would say delegate the third mission to the most discreet squad we have, the first should probably be given over to any stealth specialists, leaving a wreck where a facility was seems too much of a flag and take the second job but keep wide eyes during it
>>24785298First we need a roster of active duty girls and their specialties.I'd say offer kyoko and sayaka first dibs on mission 1, Grab a tracking specialist or two for mission 3, midori and ourselves for mission 2 with Tiny Pete backup if necessary
>>24785298If said item is 'golden' in description, we cannot leave that to other magical girls. Need further details.
>>24785340I can back going on the first mission with Sayaka and Kyoko, might as well see how we work together.However I want nothing more to do with any idols anymore. Unless it's us killing IoriAnd I can back the third
This is a hard one.First would be fun, but it could be left to anyone.Second asks for us specifically, so it would be rude to say no, but another idol? Do we really want that?Third would be good to do in person if it's an important client, but neither ourselves or our friends are the invetigative type.I don't know /tg/. I don't know.
>>24785298First envelope is go.No to the second. We're Warmaster, not some call-girl floozy.No to the third. Various other girls better suited to this task.
>>24785340>"Sayaka, Kyoko and I will under take the first mission.">"As for the second, since I have been personally asked for, it would be rude not to."We can only pick one.Unless you're saying we should be delierately rude.
>>24785298Take the Third Envelope. There's been enough idols in this story already.On that train of thought, how are we going to get the currently obsessed idol of Chiaki's back?
>>24785298>>24785281>She whispers this into your ear, her warm silken breath tickling your earlobeIt's hard to not be NTR'ed by Mami. >missionsSmash and Grab is pretty much what we're best at, but Kyoko or Sayaka would be good at it. Possibly good as a mission for some of the less-experienced Girls to tag-along; will need more intel before classifying this as easy or difficult.Escort Mission; blah, but the principal IS asking for the Warmaster, though we're not really about having a good time.Search and Rescue; Kyoko might be the best fit for this.
>>24785344>>24785346Basically a combo of this. Leave the first to our Eversors, take the second ourselves with Midori and the third for whoever. Unless there is a glint of gold in the first..
>>24785369Got to make a point.FUCK IDOLSnot literally
>>24785329Now, now. Let's not take advantage of our blonde-haired goddess. If she's going to throw herself on us, it'll be by her own volition.Anyways:>>24785322This only with a mixed Eversor/ Vindicare squad backing up the Callidus in case things go south.Also, we may need backup for the Second Envelope. The discreet type.
>>24785298Timing on the first one is problematic. Will it interefere with our planned Iori coffee meeting, thereby possibly driving her mad with abandonment issues?
>>24785340Fair enough.We might drag along Sayaka and Kyoko with us on the escort mission, just in case.>>24785298For the first mission can we bring along Midori as well?3 Combat, 1 support and recon.
If we do send our Eversors to the first envelope and the target is related to Faust or the Golden Weapons... they should immediately call in for further orders. Golden Weapons themselves CANNOT be allowed to fall into anyone elses hands.
>>24785374When we have a chat with her over a cup of coffee.
>>24785340We can only go on one, because it's implied that the missions have overlapping timeframes.
>>24785387Oh shit I forgot about that. Damn you Deculture you sneaky bastard! Dangling the fun mission in front of us knowing we'd miss the coffee!
>>24785363>>24785374>>24785382>implying the 2nd mission isn't a trap that will somehow throw us into a life and death situation. Therefore we need to pick exactly that.
>>24785298[x]Stop thinking about Mami long enough to take the second mission for yourself, even if it seems like a bad idea at best and a trap at worst.
>>24785413Maybe we can ask Misaka to provide overwatch for us again?
>>24785410I think they're were saying that by going on the first mission they are purposely snubbing the idol.
I vote delagating the first and the third task. Kyoko and Sakura on the first and an elite investigation and retrieval squad on the third... while we go see if the second is a trap or a date.
The first two seem to have time constraints, but the third, we might be able to get that coffee and still get to the case. Besides, it'll be a good old noir private detective missing persons case.
>>24785413Or its fucking Iori, We really need to cut her off. Tactfully is optional.
>>24785410No we don't.We can delegate or take them all on.Smash and Grab's timeframe is not fixed. We can set it to before or after the concert.
It PROBABLY isn't good for our first impression to the public as Warmaster to be 'Snubs big-name clients just because', either.
>>24785450>"Well? Which one do you undertake, and which do you delegate to the squads of your choosing?"Implies pick one.
>>24785451we're supposed to be a bodyguard, not a call girl.
This Ruri character is probably a 'rival idol' that wants to screw with the previous client.
>>24785459We DO have a reputation for guarding the shit out of idols. Ask Midori's legs.
>>24785447>Or its fucking IoriSays right in the mission docket that it's Kirishima Ruri.>>24785450>Two of them you can delegate to any active squad in any rank, one of them you'll have to carry out yourselfDelegate 2, do 1 ourselves.
>>24785458>"Two of them you can delegate to any active squad in any rank, one of them you'll have to carry out yourselfCanNot must.
>>24785459And that's EXACTLY what we're going to do. We'll show her how a real Warmaster goes about her work: professionally.
>>24785298Hay Koko! Saya! I gots a job for ya, ya headin' to Singapore bring a new girl show her ropes.
>>24785470Hey, we fixed those
>>24785298Let's do 2
DECU, Clarification pleaseCan we do two or more or are we restricted to one?
>>24785298Smash & Grab for us. We go in Solo.Babysitting for Sallaka, since she seems good at that. She my choose to go alone or take a squad she of her own choosing. Search & Recover for either Kyoko or ourselves with Midori in tow. Midori and Kyouko can be both quite charismatic when they want to but I don`t want to let Midori go alone since Jyubey might be still targeting her.
Actual plot relevant imagery postponed, sleepy.
>>24785298Sayaka and Kyouko + another girl of their choice on the first mission.An idol who is specifically looking for the ninth warmaster is bad news. not to keen on sending Midori on this one either.it would probably be best if we take the missing child mission, it is an important client after all.
>>24785492As thanks for fixing them, now it's hard to stay out of their grasp.
Guys do you really want to be known as the Warmaster who is lead around by idols?
Deculture @magicalgirlnoir 1mFor those still keeping up with the thread, you can delegate the missions or take them up yourself. You're not limited to just one.
>>24785542EXCELLENT.Voting for this: >>24785340Though I'm wondering what happens if we take up all.
>>24785473because people never lie
>>24785538I guess it'll take time for news to get around celebrity circles that the new warmaster does not do booty calls. No matter how much the hat wants it.
>>24785538I don't care where the exp comes from. Besides, this reeks of something hidden in the request.>>24785542Fuck, we could take first and second then. Investigation doesn't seem like our forte..
>>24785538Well, we can't just say "No." to a potential business client. We don't necessarily have to do anything but be a bodyguard. something which Ruri will have to find the hard way.
>>24785538If it makes potential enemies underestimate us, sure, why not?
>>24785566Actually we can just say no.PArt of the job title
If we can take two, I see no reason not to do first and second, since first isn't all that time-intensive. But it still might be better to delegate it so we have less to deal with while we're trying to do...whatever Kirishima Ruri needs us to do. And we may want to put it off in case shit hits the fan after, so we don't need to do that while protecting Ruri.
>>24785542oh, then it might be best to be involved in at least the Idol and the snatch and grab...come to think of it, maybe we should do all three of them, would make a very good impression.
>>24785538Technically, we ARE in the service industry.When you are requested, you try to take the job. If the client asks for some 'extras' we politely decline.
>>24785564>24785538Indeed, which is why we should have some backup waiting off-site.>24785542Going with these, maybe we can relegate the third to Midori + mixed Vindicare/ Eversor squad? Girl needs to know that Chiaki trusts her enough to pull her own weight.
>>24785581Refer to: >>24785597
>>24785591All 3?All Three Vote.
>>24785538The fact that it is so off is what makes me think it is worth checking. The other two seem like reasonable uses of our time but this one? Too easy, it sounds just like a trapSince we can apparently take all three jobs though I think we should do them all, I don't trust sending Midori off yet because Jyuubey might still be after her and sending Kyouko or Sayaka off alone on one of the other missions is just asking for bad things to happen whether golden weapon related or otherwise
>>24785591One might say that the Idol mission will also involve snatch and grab if the wording of the request is genuine.
>>24785591Those are just for this week, though. Let's not bite off more than we can chew and we still have that meeting.
>People are actually considering doing the Babysitting-Job because someone asked for us.We Warmaster now. We have loads of shit to handle. Babysitting prevents us from handling shit. Also: The first Job is killing. We are good at killing.The second and third job involves loads of talking and diplomacy, both are not our forte, so I say we choose someone for it we know is good at. I remember Sayaka being very popular by our clients since for some unknown reason, she seems to be nice to her proteges. For the third job that involves investigation, loads of talking and thinking that should go either to Midori or Kyoko. Maybe even a Midori/Kyoko -Combo since Midori is pretty sharp and Kyoko, while not the sharpest knife, seems to shit charisma.
>>24785587If we do end up taking the idol job, I suggest bringing Sayaka along. She's already done similar work with Iori and maybe she'll get some idea of the shit Chiaki has to go through. Besides, Sayaka has the people skills (so long as those people aren't Chiaki) to make this job easier on us.We can just sit back, drink and look menacing while Sayaka does the heavy lifting.
>>24785615Agreed. Let's show this Officio just how serious and competent a Warmaster we are! But we really need to do something about this hat before the escort mission.
>>24785647we can put in our inventory to attract less attention.
>>24785622The big thing is we can actually oversee the third job while a team does the legwork and investigating while we can help with any serious dangers to the clients daughter. the first job is rather short and the second is very easy but also very high profile which is a good thing since we are the new warmaster and it sort of helps if people know itEven if those people are enemies who are laying a trap for us
>>24785386Switching to:First Job:Us, solo. We need a relaxing mission where we just shoot the crap out of anything that looks at us funny.Second Job:Also us, but with off-site backup (including Sayaka) in case things go awry. (And considering this idol's request, it will happen.)Third Job:Midori with Kyouko, and probably an extra Eversor and Vindicare for good measure.
I don't envy Decu for having to count the scrambled votes now.
>>24785298>Second Envelope: Escort Mission. One of the most popular idols currently in circulation today, Kirishima Ruri, requires a Magical Girl escort for her weekend concert in Mitakihara. No danger seems imminent, but she is specifically asking to 'have a good time' with the Warmaster of the Ninth.This is so blatantly a trap its not funny. Either Golden Weapon bullshit or someone wanting revenge.
>>24785715I don't think going in guns blazing will actually be a good way to handle the first missionBeing told we can go demolish the place just seems too convenient, too much up our alley.Midori with backup we can trust is a very good idea for the third and the second job we should be okay with some backup on standby and someone to smooth proceedings out
>>24785727The question is, what are you going to do about it?Even if you know it's a trap, you don't have any evidence to turn down the client.If we send in another Puella, then she'll have the trap sprung on her and likely die.
Take the second and third missions. Delegate the first to Kyoko and Midori.
>>24785715This seems like a reasonable course of action.
>>24785754If its Golden Weapon bullshit then sending another Puella won't spring it.If its revenge then it'll be sprung but the girl will most likely be used as a hostage.
>>24785745Well, we could modify the "going in guns blazing" part to "guns blazing if discretion is not an option.">>24785754>>24785778Which is why we'll be springing said trap. And Misaka will be there with her Eversor-killing-sniper-rifle.
>>24785778And then we can rescue her and get another member of our harem. Nice.
>>24785778>If its Golden Weapon bullshit then sending another Puella won't spring it.Uh no. If it's a Golden Weapon then either the Puella gets killed because the wielder is going all Flesh of Fallen Angels, or the Puella herself becomes a wielder.
Alright, I have something early to do tomorrow so I'll cut it off here for now, sorry everyone. D: I'll tally the votes and have the most voted conclusion be presented in the next thread!Thank you for your participation, and feedback is always appreciated! Questions answered before I go to sleep!
>>24785796The request was specifically for -us-, ie someone with multiple Golden Weapons. If its Golden Weapon Bullshit then they won't have any interest in anyone other than us.
>>24785804How screwed are we with these choices?Also what would happen if we did put the hat on Mami, Sayaka and Midori
>>24785804Bit of a crazy question, but, we've seen Madoka in many guises throughout the quest. any chance of Madoka Titius?
>>24785804Are you leading us into a trap with the 2nd mission, Decu?
>>24785298Chiaki takes the First Mission with Sayaka and Kyoko. We need combat usage with some of our more reasonable Golden Weapons (Deagle, Bangles).We'll take the Second Mission with support from Tiny Pete.Third Mission we'll delegate to another team, Midori with an Eversor and Vindicare support.
>>24785821Just how exactly the fuck did Madoka Titus come about anyway?
“The hell’re you sneakin’ off to?” A voice cut through the afternoon air as I tried to slip out of the Rabbits’ quarters. …Probably would have written it off as something over the intercom at first, if there weren’t a familiar form in a motorcycle helmet slumped on the couch. Wasn’t the worst person to find just loitering around, but it was pretty close. Blackburn, the second-least-likely person to ever stop giving me shit for this, next to V.Fuck.“You goin’ on a date?” Least she had the dignity to sit up when she started to pry. Sort of. Much as Blackburn ever bothered to. “You’re just about showin’ off your tits, Cooldown.”…Fucking hot today. Not all of us get to walk around in freak suits with air conditioning. Not usually jealous of Sab, but…“Don’t give me that shit, man. It’s about the Ninth, ain’t it? Mal’s busy doin’ aide shit with Annie, ‘n the Warmasters are showin’ Mary the ropes. So you’re doin’ diplomat shit too, right?” ...Sounded like she was bored. But I didn’t want to get shit all day for going out on a date, or whatever. She’d just give Kong the wrong idea.(1/6)
>>24785835Guy on /toy/ mix and matching parts from his figures I think.
>>24785835magic? and science?
>>24785839Told her the plan. Grab Kong on the way out. Burger Suplex, little bit after the lunch rush. Catch the Warriors game, probably stick around for the postgame riot. America in a day.“Sounds like a date.” A hiss of static – a snicker, run through the speaker in her helmet.It was her first time in the U.S. Wanted to give her the tour. Baseball game isn’t a date. It’s not even worth sitting through.“Gay.” I gritted my teeth and resisted the urge to try and punch her stupid fucking helmet inside-out. Probably would have tried anyway, but the last time I broke my fucking hand. And that’s really hard to do.…Yeah. I realized later it probably sounded like a date to her. She and her girlfriend didn’t usually miss a Warriors game. Had to call it on account of the Ninth visiting, she was probably pretty pissed off. Just kinda hoped Kong didn’t get that idea.---(2/6)
>>24785818I don't know about screwed, haha! But I planned for each one of them to be interesting at least!As for the hat, well, it's just a hat.>>24785821Hahaha! Pinky Titus is going to be scary. But maybe there's a chance!>>24785823Ruri just wants a good time!
>>24785832I think the bare minimum we could trust Midori with is Kumatora and her team since we trained her so she should be goodCall me paranoid but I get the feeling letting Midori out of our sight is going to be a very bad idea given the lengths jyuubey went to try and get her back from a supposedly secret Siberian installation
>>24785813You don't think that whoever set up the trap won't kill the Puella out of spite, or in an attempt to draw us out?
>>24785847“…Hole. You live in a hole. That’s the most charitable way I can describe it.” I looked over long enough to give her a dirty look, but…shit. She was smiling, just a little. Bit back what I was going to say, and gave hime-sama my sincerest apologies for the state of our living quarters. It was, after all, a Rabbit hole.There went the smile, as she looked like she was trying to wish me dead. …Worth it. We made dumb small talk to break up the monotony of the trip. Burger Suplex wasn’t too far away from HQ – we were pretty sure Eightball owned the place. It was right next to most of the Eighth’s auxiliary housing and offered discounts for magical girls.Pretty much lived there, most of the time - at least, when I was green. Most nights anymore, Nakajima or Wright cooked. Or me. Burger Suplex had the best fucking food in Santa Destroy, though. Fresh beef, no processed meat slurry bullshit. They had a guy in the back that powerbombed the cows to death every morning. …Kong seemed much less impressed by that fact than I was, but fuck her.Fuck did she know about burgers, anyway?Knew what I wanted right away when we got inside, but it was harder to tell what she wanted. All I’d heard was that she really liked pancakes, or something. …Thought about making those for her instead of taking her out, but she’d be missing out. Didn’t need to get any weirder, anyway. Ended up throwing out suggestions until somethin’ clicked. Really seemed sad the breakfast menu wasn’t available, though. …I’d remember that for next time.(3/6)
>>24785832STEEL REHN? Please let it be so.
>>24785859(2/5)Got a large Hurricanrana Combo and a Hassy. She got a Half-Nelson and some iced tea. …Tea tasted like shit, we ended up splitting the Hassy. Coulda told her that was coming. Ended up splitting the fries, too. …Things got a little weird a couple of times, when we reached for the same one. First time we both just grabbed it and ripped the thing in half. I just let her have the rest. She didn’t even seem to notice, but I dunno if I normally would’ve, either.This whole fucking thing really put me on edge. This host shit wasn’t me. This was stuff Annie usually did, but she’d just gotten promoted to Equerry. Had a job to do now. So much easier when I could just stab people.---(4/6)
>>24785849What exactly did Kyoko do to Sayaka?:D
>>24785804Thank you for the thread! Will we be seeing more 9th girls aside from the PMMM cast?
>>24785870Home. She made that noise again when I brought up the baseball game. Didn’t seem to be a fan. …Neither was I, but Mary had tickets. Good tickets she couldn’t use, right up front. And I sure as hell wasn’t going to take Kong to a movie. Tried to tell her the riots were usually worth hanging around for, and reassured her that there were always riots.Annie told me once that the Warriors were a lot like the, uh…Henshin Tigers or something, over in Japan. Osaka. Shitty team with obsessive, violent fans. Every time I’d been to a Warriors game, they’d lost, and people started tilting cars and beating each other with pipes. We started using the riots to train new girls. The ones that got through it conscious and mostly not on fucking fire usually went on to become Eversors, and a couple of those Eversors eventually became Rabbits.Wasn’t me. We didn’t get off that easy. But I wasn’t going to take her to the fucking gardening section in Black Market. Wouldn’t inflict that on anyone else, not as long as I lived.…She didn’t really understand the Henshin Tigers thing. Guess it wasn’t that big a deal over there, either – just Annie being Annie. Most of the conversation as the game started was about how it was way too fucking hot out to be sitting in the stands. Kind of glad it wasn’t just me, but I guess she didn’t bring lighter clothes. Definitely her first time in California. Wish I could’ve lent her a lighter shirt or something. Things quieted down after the first pitch was thrown, and I was pretty sure that was that. This whole thing was probably a bust. Should have just taken her out to a bar or something. Nothing to see in this city unless you want to see broken people kill each other. …At least, that’s what I got stuck on. Barely paid attention to the game, up until she nudged me in the side.(5/6)
>>24785883“I think I could kill the batter from here.” When I looked over, she had that small smile again. …Barely more than a tug on the corner of her mouth. I couldn’t tell if she was really thinking about doing it, but god knows I usually did. It…probably wasn’t right, that once we started talking about killing, it all spilled out. Conversation came…easy. We both liked our work. The people we worked with. Our roles in this fucked-up world. We told stories. Laughed a little. Could barely hear each other over the game we were ignoring.After it was over, we sat in a parking lot on the hood of my shitty old Crown Victoria a few blocks away, watching the fireworks. And the fires. There was always a riot after a Warriors game, but for a change, this one was a celebration riot. The Warriors won their first game of the season. Some new guy they picked up in Alabama hit a grand slam his first time up at bat. …Mary was going to be pissed she missed it.…Wouldn’t have minded if it lasted a little longer. Even though police sirens wailed in the distance, it was…peaceful. Kong reminded me of a battlefield, after the dust had settled. She had a grim serenity to her, even if she was probably even more awkward than I was.…Made her pancakes before she headed back. Just once. …Didn’t really mean anything. Just wanted her to know...we were friends.(6/6)Had to renumber on the fly. My bad.
>>24785849Can we get a name on who was kidnapped?
>>24785849I think we all know the hat is far from just a hat at this point
>>24785855>I get the feeling letting Midori out of our sight is going to be a very bad ideaIf you're that worried, we could run overwatch on them during the mission. Have like two rookie Vindicares mixed into the team, and we can call it a training day.
>>24785804>that time again!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread archived.>>24785849>just a hat>yeah, nah.see you fine gentlemen next time!
>>24785915>thread 90I wonder if Decu will do something special for the 100th thread?
>>24785910And somehow Jyuubei still finds a way to get Midori, hindsight is a bitch.
>>24785881Usual couple makeout stuff, nothing too risque!>>24785882Oh, definitely! Chiaki will get to know the girls in the Ninth more.>>24785891That'll be for the next thread!
>>24785927if we get to it, maybe?
>>24785930We could try locking her up inside of a labyrinth made of Cold Rooms in the bottom floor of the Officio, but she won't get much done that way.
>>24785979Unless these missions are the final arc I doubt we won't.
>>24785987I suppose you're right, we'll have to trust our green-haired savior then.
>>24785910Running over watch is the least I would be happy with.Until we have a solid handle on just why and how he is going about trying to take her back I think we should keep her relatively closeYour idea is a good one though, we need to be able to delegate missions like these properly or we will get bogged down in the details>>24785889nice side story, I quite like these ones.Setting it further away makes it interestingNice use of the NMH setting too
Therese Witton snoozed soundly, hugging her bedsheets tight to her chest. With a slight, cat-like grin, she licked her lips and turned over, mumbling and grumbling contentedly. Her long, fluffy auburn hair was splayed out across the pink and white sheets, making her look quite the opposite of what one would expect from a warmaster. Bree-dee-deep. Therese's brow furrowed at the noise as she shoved her face further into her pillow. Bree-dee-deep. Bree-dee-deep. Therese's eyes squeezed shut. Her mouth flattened and the edges of her lips tightened. Bree-dee-dee- In one single swift motion, Therese cupped a hand around the back of her alarm clock and heaved it across the room, tearing the plug out of the socket as it flew straight into the far wall. The poor clock shattered on impact, sending glass and plastic flying outward in a hail of shrapnel. The warmaster sat up in bed , a groggy, grumpy frown on her face, and turned off her beeping cellphone.Therese Witton. Warmaster of the Seventeenth. At first glance, she'd look to be the paragon of everything it meant to be a magical girl. Kind, gentle, a peach-pastel coloured costume with an awful abundance of frills. But as anyone in the Seventeenth Officio could tell you, the girl had a temper like thermite and the power to back it up. There were dozens of rumours floating around concerning incidents where she flew off the handle over something minor. Most had at least a grain of truth to them. (1/2)
>>24786020Thanks! Wasn't sure if anyone aside from a couple of people I've heard from read 'em, actually, haha.
>>24786041A light knock sounded on her bedroom door before it slowly creaked open, revealing Tyler's cautious face. "W-warmaster?" She asked. "Mornin', Tyyy," the warmaster drawled sleepily, looking at the dark-haired aide through half-lidded eyes. Tyler shook her head as she stepped into the room carrying a tray, topped with a bowl of cereal and juice. "You're still half-asleep," the aide groaned, setting the tray down next to Therese. "Drink your orange juice, warmaster." The warmaster's aide cupped a hand on her cheek as she watched the other girl happily sip her juice through a straw, not doing a terribly good job of hiding how dearly she adored the warmaster when she was sleepy. Slowly but surely, Therese's eyes opened wider and grew more alert as the juice emptied. As the last of the orange liquid emptied, the warmaster let out a satisfied sigh and looked up at her aide. "That's some good stuff. Mornin' Tyler. What's on the agenda today?" "Good morning, warmaster," Tyler replied, giving a gentle nod. "It seems we'll be having another easy day today. Fubey wished to speak with you when you woke up. You'll be addressing Valkyrie Squad at ten. They're all a bit... you know." Therese made a shallow nod, her mouth still on her straw. "Any sign of Frieda?" "Not yet," the short-haired girl mumbled. "Brighton's on the case, but," Tyler glanced off to the side, embarrassment colouring her face, "you know how I feel about her." The warmaster rolled her eyes just as something caught her attention. She blinked several times before asking, "Tyler, what happened to your neck?" "Ah! Uh," the other girl reached up to the Winnie the Pooh band-aid and held her hand over it. "I, uh, I fell. You know. Getting out of the elevator. There's that litt-" "You were with Odette last night, weren't you?" Therese asked, her voice growing stern. (2/3)
>>24786066"I-" "You provoked her," she continued as her eyes narrowed, "didn't you?" "I- No- I didn't-" "Toooootally provoked," called a sing-song voice from Therese's cell, somehow switching itself to speaker-phone. "Good morning to you too, Holly," the warmaster answered. "Exactly how long have you been eaves-dropping?" "Mornin' boss. Just doin' my job, ma'am," the vanus replied, the distinct sound of furious typing coming through the phone. "You should have seen it. Tyler grabbed Odette, and then Odette was all like 'Getcher mitts off me, punk.' and then Tyler was like 'That's no way to talk to a warmaster's aide, Brighton.' and, and-" Holly took took a deep breath, clearly having run out of oxygen. "Long story short, Patchy handed Ty her ass on a platter. It was awesome." Therese pinched her brow and grimaced, letting out an exasperated sigh. "Tyler..." "I- That wasn-" "Please stop talking," Therese growled, turning her head up just enough to look her aide in the eye. "I've been awake for all of ten minutes and I'm already upset with you. If you continue to pick fights with Odette, I'll have no choice but to demote you. Am I understood?" "But-" "Am. I. Understood?" Tyler simply gulped and stared down, a mixture of shame and anger running through her. "Yes, ma'am." "Good. You're already on your second chance. I'd rather not have to repeat myself," the warmaster shook her head before taking a deep breath and regaining her composure. "Holly, do you have anything else to report?" "Uh, lemme see," Holly went quiet for a few moments; only the sound of fingers on keys signalled that the line hadn't gone dead. "May reports that West HQ has had an above average number of witches in the past two weeks, but nothing to be concerned about yet. All quiet in Montreal and Calgary. Maritime HQ fought a witch that looked like a giant lobster girl, but that's neither here nor there-" (3/4)
...A thought.What if we or Pinky'd misheard 'prophet'? It might be 'profit'?A longshot, but...
>>24786092"Thank you, Holly. I believe that will be all," Therese interrupted as she heaved herself out of bed. "Can you put Molly on? I'd like an update from her." "Oh! Yeah yeah! Right away, boss!" There was a distinct click as the line went dead for a few moments, leaving the warmaster and her second in a rather awkward silence. "Warmaster." Asked a rather dry voice from the phone as the sound of typing resumed. The voice was nearly identical to Holly's, save how dead-pan and tired the new girl sounded. If they actually put the effort into it, the two could easily pose as each other - some even thought they did on occasion. "Good morning, Molly," Therese greeted the new voice, picking up her clothes from around the room. Tyler took that as her cue to step out for the time being. "Anything to report?" "Oh. Oh yeah," the vanus answered, sounding slightly off guard. "Those attacks on our database? The ones I've been working my ass off to fight? They stopped last night." The auburn-haired girl glanced at the phone as she buttoned up her shirt. "They... what?" "Totally ceased. A little after midnight, I'd say. Dunno why considering they can't have gotten anything. They clearly had the resources to keep it up if they wanted to, but whatever. I'm not complaining," Therese could almost HEAR the shrug on the other end. "Oh and, uh, there've been a few more reports from the other officios. More of those golden weapons popping up. Maybe we should look into them, just in case." Therese shook her head. "You know it's not our way to go looking for trouble. Fubey has always said as much." "Sorry, let me rephrase that," Molly said, managing to sound even more dead-pan than before, "we REALLY need to look into this. Big things are in motion and we're gonna be stuck in the middle of it if we don't act." "I'll see what I can do, but no promises," Therese replied as she held up different kinds of legwear, then glanced at her phone. "Skirt or pants?"(4/5)
>>24786105Asceticism is the only way to save Mami. It is time to become monks.
>>24786105profit > money > gold > Mamiit's suicide.
>>24786110"Skirt, I guess. But, hotpants and thighhighs would look great with that outfit. You've definitely got the legs for it. Just sayin'." "Skirt it is then," the warmaster decided, turning slightly pink at the vanus' comment. "A storm's coming, Terry," Holly's voice changed as she spoke, becoming more clear and stern to the point that Therese almost thought she was a different person altogether. "I don't know about you, but I don't want to get caught without an umbrella. Don't say I didn't warn you." Therese made a shallow nod, barely noticeable to the inattentive. With another long sigh, she fastened her cap, threw on her coat in a dramatic flourish and stepped out into the hall. *** Odette cracked open a tired eye and looked up at her clock. It was already eleven in the morning. With a disgruntled huff, she made to get out of bed... but only succeeded in vainly squirming against the arms holding her back. The smaller girl groaned as she tried to pull out of Lotte's vice grip around her waist. The perennial little spoon. Odette knew that she would be lucky if the other girl woke up before noon. With no small amount of effort, Odette managed wriggle her way lower and lower until Lotte's arms were around her head. The fact that she could manage such a feat came as bittersweet to the smaller, silvery-haired girl. Just as she was about to free herself, the larger girl pulled Odette in tightly, mashing the back of her head into her sizable breasts. "Grk-"After a few long, agonizing moments, Lotte's grip loosened and Odette managed to liberate herself, jamming a pillow in the other girl's arms to take her place. It took several minutes for Odette to find her underwear again; somehow her panties had ended up inside of the bedside lamp. She made a muted sigh as she pulled on her bra, always feeling as though the nearly-flat piece of spongy fabric was somehow mocking her. (5/6)
>>24786133Her jeans and usual white t-shirt, however, were found in a neat pile at the foot of the bed. It had been quite some time since Odette had actually bothered to clothe herself while in the comfort of her own home. Thankfully, she hadn't been careless enough to remove her eyepatch in the heat of the moment. Odette hated showing others what was under it; it made her feel vulnerable, as though someone knew her darkest secret. Having gotten dressed, Odette left the bedroom behind and made her way to the little nook that passed for a kitchen. Opening the dirty and scuffed fridge, Odette scanned her collection of various juices, having a bottle of nearly every flavour. She had never liked coffee and drinking in the morning ... Well, she had finally gotten her assignment. It was about time she tried turning over a new leaf. Maybe this one wouldn't shrivel up and fall off the tree. With a nod, she decided that a good day had to start just right. Peach juice. Her very favourite. Despite not having been home in over a week, everything seemed rather clean, Odette noted as popped a slice of bread in the toaster. Lotte or Therese must have made sure to come by and tidy up while she was out. Everyone always seemed so concerned about her well-being ever since her demotion. She didn't need to be babied just because she had lost her rank, she told herself. After two months of peace and quiet, she was finally getting used to it. Of course, it had to be just then that work fell into her lap. As she waited for her toast to toast, Odette took up her notepad from the counter and took a seat at the tiny kitchen table. However, upon seeing the lacy, pink, t-shaped piece of fabric hanging off the edge, she quickly changed her mind and moved to the window sill. The sky was growing darker, she noted. She'd have to make it to the scene of Frieda's disappearance before the rain washed any evidence away. (6/7)

>>24786150Her poetry absorbed her, despite not managing to write a single word. She didn't pay attention to how long she stared at that blank page, wishing she could come up with SOMETHING just to let everything out. Depression, anger, frustration, all of it had been balled up inside of her for two months now. The world around her dissolved as she stared at the words she never wrote. She stared down from her checker-board tower as a field stretched out before her, measuring a hundred miles in every direction. Odette turned as she heard footsteps approaching from the void behind her. She made a bemused snort as the figure took its place beside her. "Haven't seen you in a while." The figure nodded. "Two months, was it?" Odette chuckled to herself and focused down on the field below them. "Something like that." The figure took a seat on the windowsill across from Odette, the pair formed a perfect symmetry as she pulled her knee up to her chin. Odette spared her a glance. Silvery-white hair, beautiful blue eyes shimmering like twin oceans, all topped off with a black baseball cap. "Thought you were dead," Odette stated, smirking at the other girl. "As did I, but apparently not," the white-haired girl shifted her eyes down to the pad of paper in Odette's hands, then back to the one-eyed girl herself. "Still writing, are you?" "I try, but my brain seems to disapprove." Odette looked back down, just as the field shifted for a moment. A brief flash that disappeared as quickly as it came. A battle raged. Magical girl against magical girl, sister against sister. "What is all that?" Odette asked, gesturing down at the field. (7/8)
>>24786159That which has not yet come to be. It might, it might not. Maybe," the other girl twirled a strand of her flowing hair as she smiled ever so gently. "Either way, we'll see soon enough. It looks like something you'd enjoy, though, doesn't it? Getting to loose that fury and savagery upon whoever you so desire. That's what they called you, isn't? After... you know. Odette the Furious, was it?" "Was one of my titles, yeah," Odette laughed. "I always liked Odette the Wanderer better. Had a certain ring to it." The other girl giggled softly to herself. "It does suit you, I must say. Tell me, do you still like sweet things?" "Love 'em." "Good, good. At least you still have pieces of your old self. You were so pretty back the-" "Let's not," Odette cut in, glaring at her conversation partner. The white-haired girl grinned devilishly. "Touchy, touchy. Did I hit a sore spot?" "So this is why you showed up," the short-haired girl snarled. "Honestly, Odette. Look at what you've done with yourself," the other girl chided, her grin growing. "I'd give you my help if you only ask-" "You're the last person I want help from," Odette growled, punctuating her statement by snapping her notepad shut. "Who are you? My mom?" "Oh, so you won't accept MY help but you're all buddy-buddy with that- that WHORE. Anyone with eyes could tell how much she's playing the field-" In a blur of motion, Odette grabbed the other girl by the frilly shoulder-straps of her costume and shoved her against the window frame. "Don't talk about Lotte that way." "You're really going to stand up for her?" The white-haired girl spat, her beautiful face contorted into an ugly grimace. "After all she did to you, you're still going to defend her?" "I-" "Come on, Odette!" She growled, gritting her teeth. "You remember, don't you?" Odette's grip loosened as her eye shot open.(8/9)
>>24786173"Yes, you remember, don't you? Was it two years ago now? How our lovely Miss Charlotte went and murdered-" Odette tightened her fingers around the other girl's shoulder straps and screamed, "LOTTE DIDN'T MEAN TO KILL HER!" Her apartment snapped back into place around her just as the sound left her lips, while a quite whisper found it's way into her ear. "Don't say I didn't warn you." Odette's hands were shaking, her breath was ragged and, strangely enough, the open page in her notepad - which she swore she had closed - was filled. Lotte poked her head in from the bedroom and blinked several times before speaking up. "Uh, y-you okay, O?" The blonde asked. "Heard you talking and then you yelled my name, and not in the good way." "'m good." The shorter girl mumbled, hopping down from the windowsill and gulping down what was left of her juice. "O-oh, alright," Lotte peeked back into the bedroom for a moment before returning to Odette. "Hey, you seen my-" Odette simply picked up the pair of panties clinging to the edge of the kitchen table and tossed them at the blonde's face. "Thanks, O," Lotte groaned before disappearing back into the bedroom. After taking a few half-hearted bites of her lukewarm toast, Odette stared into her empty glass and sighed. Screw the time, she thought, she needed a real drink and a grief seed. Or three.(9/10)
>>24786063They're not bad, but your use of cursing comes off as forced, I can't exactly put my finger on it.
>>24786063I read all of them. Generally don't comment much on them, though, but they're pretty nice on their own, and very useful info/characterization for the other officios.
>>24786266>>24786272Thanks for reading!The swearing...I do get what you mean, but I think of it as a speech style. The kind you'd especially see in a grumpy teenager. Punctuating stuff with swear words isn't very graceful, though, no.
>>24786272Thinking of the other officios I wonder exactly where they areI mean some of the places seem to have potential while others seem like they would be only good for jokes
>>24786185Just posting on behalf of decu, who was tiredly posting this for archivalfag - this is the end of part 3, it just wasn't numbered as such. Decu probably just passed out after he posted it.
>>24786324Was wondering if that was the end or not. Decu's such a trooper.
>>24785622The second is most likely a mission from the Saints so we get to shank some of Juubey's people. I say it is a good deal.
>>24786347He's pretty much the coolest guy, yes.
>>24786360Oh, also also, thread archive has been updated to include the end of Prose Magica.
>>24786347Wait, there are people other than me who is reading this?You must be Canadian.
>>24786429I read it, and I'm Australian.
I really feel that the second choice is a bad Idea on several levels. 1.sets a bad precedent.2.Iori WILL find out, and I really want to just close that chapter of the story off for good. I think we should take the first job, bringing along Sayaka & Kyoko to try to get Sayaka to not hate us quite as much/team-building exersize.Also, maybe we should just ask Kharn about the god-damned hat?
>>24786455Hey what do you know, I always thought I was the only Australian with little enough to do but sit around until 4am when Deculture normally finishes these threads
>>24786470The precedent it sets all depends on how we act during the mission and that leads into the second part where if we act professionally or even bring Iori along for the mission it might kill two birds with one stone
>>24786701Hooray for insomnia!
>>24786745Ask for warmaster, get warmaster is a bad precedent. It's like negotiating with terrorists, but with less dead people (in theory).
>>24786908No, it's providing what the client wants.They're a client, and a well-paying one.
>>24785804I might have completely missed it, but thanks for the thread!Ebook will be updated in about an hour, and threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb
