You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently finding it hard to talk to one of your colleagues. Well, you've always had problems with communication, you'll be the first to admit that - but it's made doubly more difficult by the fact that you're being interrogated about a certain idol you're about to meet for coffee in a couple of hours.Minase Iori, specifically. One of the top-billing idols of 765 Productions. You have a history together, although you'll also be the first to admit that it's been a rocky one to say the least. A disagreeable first meeting, rescuing her just as she's about to be raped by gun-toting fanatics, dragging her out of a charnel house that started off as a rather peaceful gala...not to mention the misunderstanding that you caused, what with playing around with your aide's soul gem in the middle of a phone conversation.And don't forget how you said goodbye to her, just before you left for Siberia. Yes, that didn't go down too well, now did it?
>>24971957You're tempted to just lie about it. You've done it before, either by blatant, bald-faced misdirection or simply clamming shut, trapping the interrogator in stony silence.But lying to Tomoe Mami, well. It's not something you can do. Not with her looking at you like that.Warm amber eyes, lustrous as honey, staring into your soul, expecting nothing but complete and utter honesty from you. You look down and find yourself mumbling your answer, finding your throat painfully dry as you swallow.It's...just information you're after, honestly. Information about Kirishima Ruri. Nothing more and nothing less."Yes, and...?" Mami's smile widens just the tiniest bit, nodding, encouragingly....Well. Maybe...there's also the bit about...letting Iori down a bit easily. You've been thinking hard about this, and...while Iori is a nice girl and all that, you're not too sure if letting this go on is unhealthy. If...if Mami could help with that, then..."Ah. Well, that wasn't so hard, was it?" Mami nods, her smile changing just the subtlest bit. It's a different sort of smile now, one with a note of relief in it, along with just a bit of disappointment if you're any judge. "I suppose, Chiaki-san, that you're worried that you're stringing her along, and want to make sure that she understands what's really between the both of you?...Yes. That's....that's it, exactly."Then I suggest, Chiaki-san, that you do so by telling her the truth, as you would normally do it." Mami leans back on her chair, a serious look to her face, now. "...Don't try to take any airs, or buy her presents, or anything like that. Lay open your heart to her, as plainly as simply as you can. She'll most probably cry, and do what you can to comfort her like a friend would. That's the most important bit, please do well to remember it."You nod. You guessed as much, really, but to hear it from Mami herself gave it the legitimacy you so desperately needed. [1/2]
>>24971957You're not too sure about that comforting like a friend would, though. Would that mean taking her to a bar, or something? Kyoko usually did that, with you, and you remember doing the same for her when she'd gotten into some rough times. "Oh, heavens, no! That sends the wrong message entirely!" Mami's alarm gives way to a nervous giggle. "U-um, no, Chiaki-san. Just...be there for her. Give her tissues, listen to her sadness and anger, be there if she needs someone to blame and hurt. She will need it. After that, if you so choose, leave the possibility open for friendship. You get along well enough together, Chiaki-san, and there are wounds that friends can heal better than lovers."Right. Friends. You can work with that. The blonde nods again, her smile coming to the fore once more. "Again, it's up to you what path you want to take with Iori. There's no wrong or right path - just make sure that the soonest you pick one, you stick to it no matter what."...Mami really knows her way around complicated matters like this, huh?It's her turn to be awkward, now, and she giggles again. "N-no, Chiaki-san. I'm just...well, I do watch a lot of soap operas, haha..."Right. Mami seems to have equipped you with enough relationship advice for now.Is there anything else you wanted to ask her?
>>24971966"What should I do with my hair?"
>>24971966Nothing else. Thank her, she's probably busy as hell. Go check on Kumatora.
>>24971966"Do you know anything special about our last Culexus?"
Let's ask her for advice in our relationship with Midori. Her live is ours to end, she got... crush, she did ero manga about weird girl love with tentacles, she almost died saving us in Siberia.
>>24971966"I know its a strange request, but can you get my file?"
>>24971966Seconding the hair question.
>>24971966>Is there anything else you wanted to ask her?"What do you remember of Kharn? Her manners and such. I'm finding... things... in her legacy that make me wonder."
Oh, also we need to see how she looks in the HAT
>>24972013Asking for our file might not be a bad idea. Might jog up some memories if it includes our mission dossier.
>>24971966What should I do with my hair? I was thinking of cutting itAlso what do you know about the warmasters hat?
>>24972031>>24972013Yes, the file, also good.
>>24972022While she is on the list for people to test the hat on she isn't currently in the room and telling her in advance might seem weirdWe will try it next time we see her
>>24971966Thank her and let's get this show on the road.
>>24972059>>24972022This path will only end in our molesting Mami. I'm sure everyone knows that already, but just so we aren't going in unprepared.
>>24971966Throwing in my vote for asking to see our file as well as whether or not to cut our hair.Also, e must thank her for being so patient with us.
>>24971966 Ask about our file. Getting some memories back is a good thing.
>>24971966Has she seen any Pink-haired girls recently?
>>24971966"Is it ok for me to date my aide?"
>>24971966Changing my vote to "ask to see the file".It could really update our journal.
>>24972013Putting up my vote on this one.
>>24972101>>24972031>>24972133>>24972126Lets hope our WIS is high enough.
>>24971966Offer to invite her to dinner as thanks for the advice.
>>24972125Please no, our interactions with Mami seem awkward enough as it is without adding in "Oh and we wanna bone our secretary too".Besides, we already know from Kharn's exploits that it's totally within Warmaster jurisdiction.
>>24972075I am counting on itOr our utter enslavement to her wishes>>24972143Where have you been for the last few years?Shitty weeaboo rp has been entrenched for a while
>>24972170Summertime, man, don't even dignify 'em.
>>24972162I don't think Kharn ever boned her aid. She boned pretty much everyone but.
>>24972149You know, I REALLY need to get around to playing that game. I've good things about it.
>>24972187You are a disgrace to tg if you haven't at least finished that onceGo! Come back once you have cleared the shame from your name
>>24972195>tgalso>video games>table topsTorment is god tier but it has little to do with /tg/ other than being set in Planescape
>>24972215some vidya fall under /tg/'s purview as well.Like KoDP.
>>24972215>expecting any board other than /tg/ to recognize quality
>>24972185Yeah, but from memory it wasn't from lack of trying. Though I may be getting details confused, it has admittedly been a while since I read through the archives.My point being, given Kharn's "Fuck everything in the Officio" stance, I doubt there's going to be regulations against us hooking up with Midori, even if it has to be on the sly regarding work vs personal life.>>24972189>hating on Deculture Glorious Story TimePlease go. Just ignore the thread if you hate it so much, nobody's obliging you to participate or even read it.
>>24972185Malal probably had specific reasons for avoiding it. Such as wanting to maintain a certain kind of more professional relationship with Kharn. And maybe she didn't want to catch something.
Waiting warmly for more mami
>>24972185Considering how Kharn obsessed over The Blessed Lady and her internal monologue never once remarked on the resemblance, I think it's safe to assume that either she never considered Malal or her advances were rejected.
>>24972224Really it should be ok so long as we don't parade it around the officio like Kharn did in regards to fucking everything aliveIf we act more like Kyouko and Sayaka ( sans hat ) it should be fine
>>24972226If memory serves it came up in the flashback.A completely undamped culexis will apparently cause uncontrollable vomiting and seizures even if you are the Warmaster.
>>24972222>expecting any board other than /tg/ to recognize qualityStop feeling like a special snowflakeeveryone loves TormenteveryoneEven fucking shitty websites like IGNIt is one of the best cRPG's ever made
>>24972230Or Kharn never saw Malal without her helmetOr you know for once in her life the goddamned betrayer kept a secretIt seems that despite her reputation she did a decent enough job of keeping some things under her hat so to speak
But getting romantic with Midori might ruin our chances of getting a glorious Pinky ending.
>>24972246Nothing wrong with a bit of clothed fun, Anon.
>>24972248Those who have played it, anyway. /v/ is infested with cawadooty kids last I checked, they don't even know what Torment is. This leaves /tg/>>24972259We're aiming for a threesome end with Pinky and Midori damnit.
>>24972259Watermelon is the best choice anyway
>>24972276Watermelon best end.
>>24972276Lies, lies and slander.Our harem will include Mami too.
Am I the only one dreading the inevitable inclusion of some kind of Iori expy as a villain in the Miracle Midori books/anime?Admittedly the only worse option is Iori reads them or sees the show, and decides she should become a magical girl like Miracle Midori so we'll love her. That or jumping to the conclusion that the events are based off our real relationship with Midori somehow.
>>24972276>/v/ is infested with cawadooty kids last I checked, they don't even know what Torment is. This leaves /tg/NoCowadooty isn't allowed on /v/That's like making a Naruto thread on /a/And it's other way around, /v/ love Torment so much that saying anything bad about it at all will cause a gigantic shitstorm
>>24972293I think at this point most people are considering a fruit salad end
>>24972295>the events are based off our real relationship with Midori somehow.Only a matter of time.
>>24972276>they don't even know what Torment ismore like it's forbidden not to like torment
>>24972301>fruit salad endWhat?
>>24972293Mami is a flaming heterosexual.>>24972296I should've lurked for longer then. This is good news indeed.
>>24972309A bit of everything
>>24972318/v/ mostly consists ofsome old cRPG thread once a weekSTALKER threads here and theresome new game thread which mostly consists of shitposting (Bioshock Infinite etc.)some new game thread /v/ likes (Metro Last Light etc.)Console warsPC master race threadsAnd non vidya shitposting threads
>>24972301But in trying to actually do it, we're more likely to blunder into a pineapple salad end.
>>24972303>the next volume is set in Siberia>Miracle Midori saves Murder Mayumi from Mayumi's former senpai, Varya Kalashnikov>cue phonecall from simultaneously offended and laughing Kharn
>>24972330Well, Souji IS familiar with the books...
>>24972328When I left the board only the Console wars and Shitposting existedThat was why I left the place
>>24972318She could be bisexual. Her turning down Kharn could have been related more to personal tastes, the amount of time she believes one should take before making love, and/or maybe not wanting to catch a plethora of STDs.
>>24972330>Kharn is only offended because her character didn't screw both characters at the end of the arc and isn't scheduled to reappear to rectify this
>>24972330>Varya KalashnikovOh my god this is great.This totally must be a thing
>>24972349Currently /v/ consists of shitposting about how bad Xbox One is.
>>24972381And once the PS4 is revealed I expect it will just be console warsSo I am not going to bother
>>24972381B-but this is not a shitposting. New Xbox IS bad.
>>24972400There's a difference between a thoughtful post about a subject and a shitpost about it in response to random other things nonstop. /v/ specializes in the latter.Also seriously the whole PC Master Race thing is tiresome.
>>24972418Same thing as "Arrow to the Knee" jokes: Won't stop people from running it into the ground and then some.
>>24972381But it is bad.
>>24972400It is badstill shitposting>>24972394ps4 was revealedjust not the designcurrently sony and nintendo bros are becoming friends because xbox one is shitty as hell
>>24972418PC Master Race is still true.
>>24972288>>24972288>>24972288Can we add a Mumi to this?
>>24972369>>24972373I'd be tempted to take a shot at writing something up along these lines for the end of the thread. Not too confident in my ability to pull off a decent pacing with someone else's characters, though.
>>24972418This, no matter how true Pc master race is or how bad Xbox One is it's still shitposting>>24972421/v/ doesn't make arrow the the knee jokesthat's considered reddit tier humor
>>24972400Hey man, don't diss the X-Bone. We all know the quality of videogame consoles is directly related to their HEUG factor, and the X-Bone looks like a brick. It must be good.
>>24972428>It is bad>still shitpostingActually I can understand their butthurt. New Xbox may be great thing, but it isn't targeted only for gamers. Frankly, gaming has low pirority in new console.
>>24972466Given that it is a video game console that really does strike me as a big sign that it is shit
>>24972433If she can still keep her headSorry I couldn't resist it
>>24972454http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbWgUO-RqcwIts only good for TV and water-cooling.
>>24971982 >>24972013You thank her for the advice, and she smiles. "You're quite welcome, Chiaki-san. Now, is there anything else I can do for you, Warmaster?"...Well. If she's asking, then...would it be possible for Mami to pull your file up? You'd like to go over it, and see if it could fill in some of the glaring holes in your memory, or at least those that have to do with your time in the Officio."You file, Chiaki-san?" Mami blinks at this, but nods after a moment. "Well, normally the Warmaster's personal file is usually locked away for the Incubator's eyes only after she gets the position, but...I'll see what I can do." Her fingers move underneath the screen, in such a speed that you wonder if being a secretary isn't her actual calling, besides being your personal blonde goddess of luck and salvation. "I'll deliver it myself personally tonight. Are you going to spend the night in your quarters, Chiaki-san, or are you going back to your apartment?"Uh. Hm. Well, you were hoping to get some sleep in your apartment later. You're not all that comfortable sleeping in the same bed that Kharn collected quite a few specimens of her collection on, no matter what Kyuubey said about the mattress being replaced."Hee. Well, that's understandable. Alright, I'll drop by then with your file, and we can go over it together if you like."That'd be great. You thank her again."Oh, no, it's my pleasure, Chiaki-san, don't worry about it. Now, is that everything?"...You open your mouth to say yes, but immediately shut it as another thought comes out of the blue for you.Is...is it possible for her to help you out with your hair, too? YOu're just at a loss on what to do with it. It's grown out much too long for your liking, and it is getting uncomfortably warm during the day.[1/2]
>>24972288living the dream (or nightmare depending on which pinky that is)
>>24972478"Eh? I thought it was a nice look for you, Chiaki-san. It makes you look...well, mysterious and stylish." It's then that she giggles. "Well, sort of like Kharn, then, I suppose, but certainly a different kind of appeal."Yes. You're not Kharn. That needs to be said."Of course, of course. Hmm...well, if you'd like, I can take care of that personally, too. And I promise not to do it the way Kharn did, with a combat knife." Mami giggles again, shaking her head. "Oh, I remember that. It was such a rough cut she did for you, I really had to spend some time just making it look presentable. You seemed to grow into it well enough, anyway."Ah. Well. If...if it's a haircut she's talking about, then you'll look forward to it."Of course it's a haircut, silly! Besides, we have to make sure you look presentable for your client. It's a four-day security detail job, right? You need to look your best, moreso that you're Warmaster now. You have to make a good impression."Good impression. Right. You'll...try to work on that."I'm sure you will, Chiaki-san." Again, the smile. "Well, if that's just about everything, then I'll meet you later, then?"It's a date, you tell her. Finding your cheeks burning at your own words.Mami giggles at this, making you blush even harder. "Chiaki-san, do be careful on how you say things!"You manage to smile at this as the both of you finally say goodbye to each other. You close the laptop as the call ends.Well, that's that. Hopefully you remember what to say later.You look over your desk to check up on Kumatora's progress - and you note that she'd gone through half of the panties already, her own smartphone clicking and flashing with every specimen photographed. Each one carefully documented, before being packed into the box.[2/3]
>>24972433It would be too much trouble to modify this one, but maybe I can do something else for you.We'll see how it goes!
>>24972531"No problem here, sempai!" Kumatora flashes you a grin. "Oh, uh, I did find something interesting!" She plucks out two specimens from the pile in front of her, before standing up and placing them carefully on your desk. "They're the same date and place as the one you're keeping right now, sempai! Different names, though, but there you are!"Huh. Really? You slide them closer to you for inspection. One is a completely frilly black number, barely even qualifying as a pair of panties and more of an over-embroidered, triangular piece of black silk tied to black garter. The other one is a plain and simple white variety, with a golden sheriff's star embroidered at the front.The former is owned by an Annie May Springfield. The latter, owned by Mary Sue "Totally Awesome Alabama Liquid Snake" Springfield. Same date, same place.Twins. Kharn did a pair of twins at the same time.God dammit, Kharn.Kumatora rocks back and forth on her heels, somewhat uneasily, as if unused to being in one place for too long. "Should...should I put them back in the pile or what, sempai?"How do you respond?
>>24972531>Mami coming to our apartment>At night>Possibly involving haircutting with yuri undertonesGentlemen, this may be approaching our hour of destiny.
>>24972545Hmm. If what Wendy says is true, these ones might be useful in the near future.On the other hand, panty blackmail is kinda crude. Do we really want to bother when we can just shoot most problems?
Who's bright idea was it to ask Mami to cut our hair?Didn't Midori call dibs on cutting and styling it?
>>24972545The fact that Decu is offering at all is fishy. But one of them was the Queen of Psychopaths, not sure if she'd find this hilarious or would want to rip us a new one for this..>>24972559We should keep the Hat close.
>>24972545Those fucking names. "Yeah, toss them too.">>24972564Midori asked us to wait before cutting it. Guess that's out the window now.
>>24972545"We're packing all of them."
>>24972545"Please get them out of my sight now, thank you." Consider having a drink to try and hurry these mental images out of your head.
>>24972545Keep them I guess. Hoarder mentality HO!
>>24972545>Mary Sue Springfield.Ha ha.
>>24972564Okay, make sure Midori's there too.She's going to be staying at our apartment too after all.
>>24972545Put them away with the restPerversely interesting Kharn's exploits may have been I don't particularly want any part of them associated with me
>>24972559Mami is too good.Soon we will learn she's the mastermind behind everything, scheming to create her perfect waifu out of a cute amnesiac girl she happened to find.
>>24972564I don't remember what Midori said other than telling us to try leaving it like this for a while.
>>24972589She's in sickbay until tomorrow morning. Mami said she'd drop-by tonight.
>>24972589We may not want Midori to live with us just yet. There's no need to rush into things.Especially since this may be our last chance to try and lure Mami.
>>24972545Kharn didn't just do twinsShe did twins and Wendy all at the same time
>>24972545"Pack them up, the photographs will suffice. What's the chance they'd actually end up mattering in any way?"poor Chiaki, no access to meta-info.
>>24972531>Mami giggles at this, making you blush even harder. "Chiaki-san, do be careful on how you say things!"STOP THE FUCKING PRESS!Is-.. Is Mumi flirting with us? Ara ara DOUSHIO!?
>>24972545"In the box."But we're totally mentioning this to Wendy.>Cutting Chiaki's hairNO NO NO DECU THIS IS NOT WHAT WE AGREED
>>24972596We may have to request a postponement of the haircut to the night after, then.>>24972599Mami did say she liked us with long hair. It may not all be lost just yet.Though I am more in mind for Green route. Mami is too pure for us anyway.
Another MGNQ thread, so soon?Dammit, Decu, are you on some kind of secret mission to sabotage my productivity or something?Don't burn yourself out, man.
>>24972594We'll find some sort of compromise; just cut it to a few inches longer that shoulder length.
>>24972599Mami is already happily dating and screwing some guy.Thats probably why she didn't want the warmaster hat. She probably intends to retire to be QB's secretary.>>24972596We should collect her home, tonight, then.
>>24972614Calm down chump. We might be getting only a slight haircut so it isn't down to our waist, but more manageable. Like just over shoulder length or something. We could still do hairflips.
>>24972617Well. Three is an easy solution to that. We won`t ask Mumi to cut it for us. Just to braid it. Should we decide to gut it after Midori has seen that we cann still do that.
>>24972638I'm still hoping for a ponytail.
Really though, skulls, panties, Kharn really is an avid collector, huh. Wonder what she's collecting now, given that her recent life-changes aren't very conducive to collecting skulls (though she'll probably get some from time to time) OR panties.
Oh, got some stuff that isn't by me. By another drawfag that I know by the name of Ratman. He asked me to post them for him here, so here you are.
>>24972659Babies. Souji's babies.
>>24972670>"Souji! Am needing more babies for throne, yes? Come, we must work!"
And another one. Again, not by me but by Ratman.
>>24972668>>24972681nice>>24972599naah, pretty sure we do. okay, I do.
>>24972681>IT was dildos
>>24972681>it was dildosMy sides have witched out.
Okay, then postpone actual cutting to when Midori has the say she wanted, mmkay?
>>24972681I love it.
>>24972635I question the "Happily" part. She did ditch the previous guy she was with, we don't know if this one will last either.
>>24972758Maybe she likes quick flings?
>>24972800I'd guess she doesn't have time for really intensive relationships, and probably sticks to quick flings until she finds someone low-maintenance she likes.
>>24972800Or maybe she likes to be the one in controlThat's why she refused Kharn
>>24972758>DitchingWhat? Where exactly is that?
>>24972841She told us to dickpunch the Pilot who was apparently here Ex, who was apparently a different one to the one in the flashback, and I may be imagining but didn't someone mention she had a new on already?
>>24972856Dat racist stereotypeLove it
>>24972862I only recall her telling us to hit him as he deserved it. Nothing about him being an ex.Also the rumour was that she might be dating someone. Whether it was the same person in the flashback was not mentioned.
>>24972575 >>24972576 >>24972578 >>24972590You tell Kumatora to pack them away with the rest, and she does so with admirable efficiency and enthusiasm. While it's an amusing thought - to be able to meet with whoever owned the panties and just whip them out at your leisure, to see them squirm and fidget in embarassment at you owning such an intimate belonging of theirs - it's not something you're into. You're not so crass to take fun in something like that. ...Of course, you did just take photographs of two of your aides making out in the elevator because of hat-related shenanigans, but that's neither here nor there. Besides, that was just to document the results of your experiment, and not for something tawdry like blackmail.Besides, it's not like you need any more help with that regard. Mary Sue? Annie May? Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake? With names like that, well. Murderface seems a whole lot tamer.You drum your fingers idly on the polished top of your mahogany desk, before realizing that Kumatora had left you Wendy's panties, leaving them untouched when she returned the twins' underwear to the pile. ...Well, you did pick these out for a reason. Maybe you'll indulge yourself this one time. You have a feeling she'd want it back, anyway. Maybe, just maybe, it'd distract her long enough that your meeting won't end in another double-murder.Surreptitiously slipping the laminated piece of silk into your inventory - praying to whatever god there is out there for Kumatora not to suddenly look up and see you doing so - it's here that you wonder what to do with the rest of your time, before your meeting with Iori.You have a couple of choices. You've got time for one of them.Look for Sayaka. She's probably training the newbies right now.Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.Look for Kyoko. Check up on how she's preparing for her assignment.
>>24972902[x] Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.
>>24972902>[X]Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.Also, make sure to take the damned hat off when we get there, if we take it at all.
>>24972902>Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.Bad food is bad and we could always ask about the hair part. Maybe she wants to come over tonight?
>>24972902>Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.
>>24972902>[x]Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.
>>24972902>[x]Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.We need to tell her about her assignment with Kyouko. She's been a good girl so far, but she seems kind of clingy and more than a little bit jealous of any other girls that hang around Chiaki.
>>24972902[x]Look for Kyoko. Check up on how she's preparing for her assignment.We established that there will be complications with assignments few threads ago, after all. No time for love with Midori.
>>24972902>Bring Midori OUT for lunch.And I know just which Ramen Joint to hit up.She needs to see her family.
>>24972944Nah. She's needing healing proper first.I don't get why they're not just MAGICKING it fixed, and getting grief seeded up. It's not like lich bodies heal normally anyway.
>>24972902[x]Look for Kyouko. We're going to be relying on her a lot in the coming missions, and we should set a precedent that we aren't the kind of warmaster to just wind up our troops and then leave them to their own devices without checking on them at least.
>>24972902>[X]Look for Sayaka. She's probably training the newbies right now.I want to meet more of the girls under our command, particularly the new recruits.
>>24972902Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.We also need to tell her that she's going onto the active roster and that she's assigned to work with Kyoko on a milk run. And we completely forgot to ask Mami to arrange an intel-gathering team to check on the target of the smash-and-grab. We should get that done today.
>>24972944Oh gods, yes.Lets steal her out and go to Hanegawa's.
>>24972902Bring Midori lunchAnd give Kumatora the pantiesIt feels dirty hanging on to them regardless of the reason
>>24972957It's probably a waste of magic power and a waste of grief seeds to heal unless you actually need to do so in a hurry. Especially since we're still operating under "If you abuse your magic you will die forever" rules.
>>24972902[X]Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.Hospital food IS fucking terrible.
>>24972944This actually sounds good. She should have had enough sleep and rest at this point to be able to go out for lunch. Also she needs to be told about the mission so she can prepare for it and tlak with Kyoko or something.
>>24972944>>24972966We don't need to be in such a rush to drag Midori everywhere, especially when she's still resting up from being shot up for the fifth time.
>>24972944>>24972966Have you considered that maybe she wants to keep her work away from her family? Far, far away.
>>24972902>Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.I don't see any compelling reason for the other two, and there's no sense fighting the green tide.
>>24972902>[x]Bring Midori lunch. You've had the food they serve you in the sick bay wing, and it's horrible. You'd like to spare her that.Oh boy, here we go...
>>24972944That is a bad idea, a really bad idea that will end in upset Green and upset Mami. Also we'll run into Iori
>>24973005Wait, waitwaitwait, I wanna change this to>Look for Sayaka. She's probably training the newbies right now.Have you guys forgotten that we need to find out who this Prophet person is? This seems like a good place to run into new people, one of whom might just be our Prophet.
>>24973027In that case, Chiaki could drop by and see what Sayaka is doing after she talks with Midori. Unless Chiaki already has a lunch prepared, she's going to need to go out and buy something.
>>24973027>Have you guys forgotten that we need to find out who this Prophet person is?...ask Mami to forward us files on every known meguca with prophetic or psuedo-prophetic powers, divination, clairvoyance, or even just a nickname to that effect.We have *resources* now, people. We don't need to go to a pub and break someone's pinky every time we need info anymore.
>>24973081>We don't need to go to a pub and break someone's pinky every time we need info anymore.We might not need to do so, but we still can and probably will anyway.
>>24973067the bento box cliche?
>>24973095We probably will down the track but not right nowAfter all we can get info from our sources then track down people to beat the crap out of in a pub to get us up the food chain faster
>>24973102Everyone knows making someone a bento box will make them fall in love with you (so like love quadrupled for Midori), clearly an excellent plan.
I wonder where Oriko has gone off to?
>>24973148necrophilising Kirika's corpse, probably.
>>24973102Maybe, but I don't expect our eggs to look or taste anywhere near as good as Haruna's
>>24973148Planning our demise, probably.
>>24973139Chiaki can't cook and, according to Kharn, burned a bowl of cereal while pouring milk.
>>24973198Clearly, we need to go get takeout..?There's a food store in the place, right, just grab something decent from there and bring it up.
>>24973226Or we can get food from the very well stocked and catered cafeteria instead of Midori getting hospital slop?They have mentioned before that the cafeteria does good stuff
>>24973198Being bad at cooking only ENHANCES the effect of the bento box, even if it tastes like shit. This is a well-documented effect.
>>24972902Midorin doesn't understand why so many votes.
>>24972919 >>24972926 >>24972929 >>24972932You decide to bring Midori lunch for today. You've spent your share of time in the sick bay yourself, and while you can certainly understand that those recovering from injury or sickness need a specific diet designed to help get them back into fighting shape - the reason that sick bay food had always tasted horrible continues to escape your understanding, still. Was it something deliberate on their part, some sort of psychological tactic to make Magical Girls train harder and fight harder to avoid being injured, and in turn avoid having to tolerate such garbage? Or was it by design, that something healthy for you really has to taste like something you'd rather not eat, even if it meant starvation?...Well, you're probably exagerrating here, but you still can't forget how you were served boiled, mushy carrot porridge that one time. Just an entire bowl of boiled, mashed carrot and rice. There wasn't even a side dish you could pick at, not even a miserable cup of soup to slurp.It's with this in mind that you tell Kumatora to continue with the underwear-packing and so on. If she finishes before you get back, she's to seal the box, label it with the recipient being a certain Director Souji of the Siberian R&D base, and haul it off to Logistics. She should also lock the door behind her as she leaves.Kumatora flashes you her eager, sunbeam-bright grin, and salutes. "You can count on me, sempai!"Yes. You're pretty sure you could. You thank her, and after putting the Warmaster Cap back on, you leave the raven-haired Eversor to her duties as you make your way towards the office cafeteria.[1/2]
>>24973286Because green is best
>>24973259Yeah, there's a food place store thing. Let's get food from there.
>>24973315It's an hour or so before the lunch rush officially hits, but as you get nearer and nearer to the headquarter's chow hall do you realize that there's a lot more people in here that you participated. Most of them active-duty magical girls, chatting with each other, giggling, some whispering to each other fervently, sharing gossip in hushed whispers. Some are laughing uproariously, bringing to mind a certain red-haired Eversor, although you don't see her one-eyed mug at the moment. Maybe she's still preparing for that mission you gave her. Maybe.The moment you step into the cafeteria, though, is when the entire place falls silent. You blink at this, not quite sure just what happened - when a cursory glance around tells you that everyone is staring at your direction. At you - and at the hat you're wearing.. . .Well. Shit.It seems you've suddenly got a captive audience, here.How do you deal with this situation?Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.Order them to act normally. Try to be casual about it.Freeze time, steal the lunch, and make your escape.
>>24973334Combine all three into a glorious failed attempt to be smooth. Stare back at them for an uncomfortably, awkwardly long time, manage a half-hearted "...As you were," and then timestop dash through the lunchline.
>>24973334>Freeze time, steal the lunch, and make your escape.Because reasons. We can grab a coffee for pinky, too.
>>24973334>[X]Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.God damn it, Chiaki, you and your fucking hat. Well, people need to get used to it, anyway.
[x]Freeze time, steal the lunch, bump into Pinky, panic.
>>24973286Poor Pinky. She's getten her show stolen by a girl who's lived maybe seventeen years even after she's stayed true for over a century.
>>24973334>Freeze time, steal the lunch, and make your escape.Let's meet Pinky. If no Pinky, this is prime rumour material here.
>>putting the Warmaster Cap back onINCOMING MIDORIRAEP
>>24973334[X]Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.This fucking hat won't beat us! And we can't order them to act normal, it'll make us look like we're not in complete control at all times.
>>24973334Freeze time, steal the lunch, and make your escape.Heh, no we don't want to meet pinky again so soon and we shouldn't waste magic. >[x]Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.MUHAHAHAHAHAHAH
>>24973334[x]STOP. HAMMERTIME. I mean timestop, grab the lunch, and go.
>>24973334[x]Freeze time, steal the lunch, and make your escape.HA HA TIME FOR PINKY
>>24973353>>24973286Watermelon end best end.
>>24973334Act naturalWhile freezing time and stealing lunch does sound fun we should just let them get used to the fact that the new warmaster is around and won't be making random strip searches
>>24973356'tis not raep if she wants it
[X]Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.[X]Order them to act normally. Try to be casual about it.>"Don't mind me." (deadpan) Pick lunch box with heart shapes in it. "I'll have this please."
>>24973353The obvious solution is to try and hook up Mami and Midori, then we can have Pinky and it will be a glorious best ending.
[x] Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.[X] Stay professional. No flirting, etc.
>>24973370But it is rape if you use mind control.
>>24973334>Order them to act normally. Try to be casual about it."Carry on."Get in, buy food, get out.
>>24973334>[X]Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.Stopping time here would be sheer cowardice. Act normal.
>>24973371Throwing my vote in for this.
>>24973371Sounds like the best approach, dignified and composed, like the image Chiaki really really wants to project.
>>24973334>Freeze time, steal the lunch, and make your escape.We enter cafeteria without breaking stride. Timestop. Gather supplies and coffee. Return to previous position. Resume time. Sip coffee. Say "continue". Turn around and leave.
>>24973346This sounds good. Be sure to hold the stare a little too long.
>>24973334>>24973402I like this.
>>24973370No, I mean Midori is the one going to jump on Chiaki.
>>24973391Deep down, Homura in all her incarnations was always a coward. Not of dying, but of losing the ones she cared about.And social situations. She's just absolutely terrible at them.
>>24973402fuck yes this
>>24973402Only if we have the hat on. I'm reasonably sure the hat is the reason we don't spaghetti out in these situations.
>>24973402Yes. And make sure to greet Pinky, after all, we don't want to suddenly find ourselves in a time-stop conversation with a mad Pinky because we ignored her.
>>24973334>Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.>Order them to act normally. Try to be casual about it.No need to abuse the laws of physics for this one. Besides, Chiaki needs to learn how to deal with crowds sooner or later. And they won't all be fangirling over her either.
>>24973457You call almost grabbing the bum of one of our random minions NOT spaghetting out?
>>24973487>dat "That won't be necessary" hairflip afterI didn't say it was without problems, just that it seems to take care of the worst of Murderface's social graces by introducing a few more.
>>24973334[x]Act like it's nothing. Proceed with purchasing of lunch materials.[x]Order them to act normally. Try to be casual about it.
>>24973487Well it's not like we tried to have a quick finger of her cunt, now did we?
>>24973457We do have the hat on. It's a reflex or black magic.>You thank her, and after putting the Warmaster Cap back on, you leave the raven-haired Eversor to her duties as you make your way towards the office cafeteria.
>>24973507We seriously need to have it exorcised by a Shinto Priest or something.
>>24973504After wearing the hat for prolonged periods of time, don't be so certain that isn't what we'd progress into. Look at what we just crated for examples.
>>24973487No that was the exact opposite of spaghetting outIt was acting so in command that you do whatever you wantWhich explains a lot about Kharn
>>24973531Some might say that just doing whatever you want and damning the consequences is it's own form of being spaghetti. If you decide that you no longer care about consequences for anything you do, then suddenly there's no risk to social situations. You've taken the easy road.
>>24973562That is true, but it is more often someone just not caring about the consequences because they are in a position to not need to worry about them
>>24973334[x]Do the Hair-Thing[x]Proceed without giving any fucks whatsoever.And not a single homu was given that day.
>>24973603In favor of.
>>24973603Ahhh, what the Hell. Changing vote to this.
>>24973334Stop Time. Take lunch. Leave money
>>24973603Fuck it, changing vote to this if you're still taking.Am this guy here >>24973470
>>24973603Gotta be stylin'.Let's do it.
>>24973346 >>24973357 >>24973358 >>24973371Despite feeling yourself break out in a cold sweat, you force yourself to keep moving. To keep walking. The void left by the cafeteria's sudden silence filled only by the sound of your heartbeat thudding in your ears, forming an odd backbeat to the sound of your heels clacking against tiled floor. "Don't mind me," You hear yourself murmur as you pass by the first table occupied by dumbstruck magical girls, in a deadpan tone of voice that sounds markedly smoother and colder from the usual rough growl you're accustomed to speaking in. A sudden compulsion that you're much too slow to think about - much less suppress - has you reaching up to rake the fingers of your right hand quickly through your hair, flipping the mass of thick strands over your shoulder with a frosty flourish. A repeat of the same gesture you did earlier, at the entrance of the building.Before you can ponder how that came to be, your legs - now seemingly already on autopilot - had already brought you in front of the cafeteria counter, the crowd in front of it quickly parting to give you a wide berth, staring at you with rapt attention. You clear your throat quietly at this, before stepping forward once more and then pointing with an index finger at one of the packed lunch sets on sale. ...You're not even reading their labels, you're just pointing at the one you spotted first."I'll have this, please." You tell the cafeteria lady, an aging housewife type who's trying not to stare at you too hard, and she quickly wraps the packed lunch up for you, holding it out a moment later. You reach into your inventory for your cash card, but she quickly shakes her head. "O-oh, no, please. The...the Warmaster always eats free. O-on the house!"[1/2]
>>24973962You blink at this, before accepting the lunch with a bow. "My thanks," You hear yourself say again, once more in the cold, prissy tone you're finding more and more irritating. You turn sharply on your heel, clutching the package to your chest with one hand, and you leave the cafeteria as quickly as you entered it.You let out the breath you've been holding after ducking into an empty corridor and leaning your back against the wall. Your heartbeat still pounding in your ears, adrenalin coursing painfully through your veins.Is...is this what being a Warmaster really feels like? You...you were hoping it'd be something like any other promotion. You get a new rank, new responsibilities, a higher pay grade. You weren't expecting something like this, being the sudden center of attention when all you want to do is to just fucking buy lunch for someone.You spend a few moments getting your bearings back, before tearing the hat off your head again and pinning it underneath one arm. You make your way back to Midori's room as soon as you can, and you burst in on her drawing something on a sketchpad, a newly-sharpened pencil in her hand."S-Sempai!" Midori's eyes grow wide, and she clutches the sketchpad close to her chest. "What's...what's wrong? What happened? Did...did you run all the way here? You're as pale as a sheet!" It's only then that she notices the package still clutched in your hands. "...Is...is that for me?"How do you respond?
>>24973973"Yes, it's for you. Much better than hospital food, I think.And this job is crazy. I'm the centre of attention in any room I walk into. It's creepy and scary.Also, I think the title comes with a complimentary stick up the arse."
>>24973973"Being the Warmaster sucks. ...Not as much as the infirmary food does, though. Enjoy."
>>24973973Yes. Better eat all of it, had too many close encounters to get it. ..what were you drawing?
>>24973973Fuck this hat.Have a bento
>>24973973"I am not good with people. I bought you lunch. What are you drawing? Have some lunch."Thrust the meal at her while we're babbling.
>>24973973"You saved my life, bringing you lunch is the least I could do."
>>24973973Yes, I thought you might want something tastier than hospital food
>>24973973"Yeah. Hospital food sucks; I should know. Spent enough time here."When are you going to be discharged? You're on the active roster and your first mission starts today. You're paired with Kyouko and a bunch of newbies on a search and retrieval mission."
>>24973973[X] Deadpan while failing to keep cool: "Yeah. Hospital food is crap so I thought of buying you something to eat."
>>24973973Tersley.>Hey Midori yes it's for you, also, you're on assignment after you get better check with Mami, got to go bye-!
>>24974030Actually, in one of the earlier threads it's been said (I can't remember by who) that Midori will be back in action in a day.
>>24974019This plus an affirmation that we did NOT run.
>>24973973"Yes. Also, what is the word for the irrational fear of being the centre of attention? Because I have that. Really bad."
>>24973973It's lunch. And yes,it's for you. The lunches here are crap.I'm not doing the "Don't read too much into it, I'm just doing this cause you saved my life" act. This is an honest gesture of gratitude.
>>24973973We're out of the crowd, spaghetti can spill freely now."Did you know the cafeteria's packed? I never noticed how many girls we employ before. Of course, I normally seek out bars for lunch, not much alcohol sold here."
>>24974083>"Yes. Also, what is the word for the irrational fear of being the centre of attention? Because I have that. Really bad."Agoraphobia?
>>24973973>>24973973[x] Take a moment to collect yourself. [x] "I-.. I thought you might be hungry."
>>24974096No, that's fear of wide open spaces.
>>24974066Yes, but what time? Kyouko probably wants to start right away, since time is important for an assignment like this. If we can get Midori out of here now, or as soon as she's eaten, then it would help Kyouko out.
>>24974112We should tell her where our new apartment is, though, since she'll presumably be staying with us from now on. And give her a spare key.
>>24973973[x]We still have our homu pride. "...I did not run. It's just that being a Warmaster is more taxing than eating hospital food. Here."
>>24974130Yeah, better do this. Hell, do this even if we don't offer to let her stay, she's our aide and friend, gotta show her around the apartment.
>>24974130We don't need a maid THAT badly.
>>24974110>>24974096It's the name for both actually.
>>24974112>>24974130If I recall correctly, Midorin's going to be discharged either tonight or tomorrow. Either way, we'll have the time to pick her up and show her our new apartment.>>24974145Who's saying Midori is our maid?
>>24974145No but we have a position open for bedwarmer.
>>24973973[x] Take a moment to collect yourself.[x] "I-.. I thought you might be hungry."I like this
>>24974145You take that no-maid attitude out of here right now anon.
>>24974145She's our Personal assistant at the very least, and wife-candidate at the most.Either way, she needs access to our apartment, and since she probably doesn't have a place of her own, she's going to need somewhere to stay anyway.
>>24974167You mean chairwarmer.
>>24974145Chiaki is not a very clean individual.
>>24974179She has a family she can stay with.
>>24974167>>24974186Nope, she deserves far more than that.>>24974188Doesn't mean we're going to press-gang her into it.>>24974192She hasn't been with said family in a long time, IIRC.
>>24973973Grab the sketchpad. "Drawing more porn of me?"
>>24974186That's the same thing for us.
Since we're supposing to be diving back into Meguca Runner stylings again, could one of the drawfags draw Chiaki as Deckard?
>>24974179According to the Kyouko Christmas special, there are apartments/barracks for the girls that don't have a place to stay. Chiaki slept in the office until she got her own apartment.
>>24974202This with a little less thickness"Whatcha Drawing?"
>>24974227Well, yes, she could do that.Or she could sleep in our bed.
>>24974192Given most Meguca seem to lack families and live on their won or in dorms, I doubt that it's either possible or safe to go back to her family.They may be little magic girls, but they're still vicious murdering hitmen fighting other vicious murdering hitmen, and other unsavoury types.
Do we have a copy of a key to give her?Should we ask we ask her what we should do with our hair?Mami offered [half-truth]
>>24974233Can we even stop the implications from spreading into the Ninth Officio and beyond? One of these days, someone's going use Midori to get to us.
>>24974130>>24974143>>24974145I think its also about time she starts calling us Chiaki instead of Sempai. At least when we are in private. After all she was.. inside us. I think this kind of intimacy allowes that.Also:[x] Hand over a spare key to our apartment[x] Tell her our trademark deadpan that she just needs to cook for herself when she comes home, since we`re going to be on a mission for the next few days.[x] Watch gleefully how Midori starts to squirm once the reailization over our implication kicks in.
>>24974251Give her a standing order to illusion herself into looking like some completely nondescript personthing when out and about?
>>24974263Hee. Hell yes.
>>24974288Very unnecessary, and would probably make her feel bad even if she understood the reason. Besides, there's gonna be a billion rumors anyway, no point worrying about them.
>>24974288We gotta ask her to illusion herself as a shotgun and hold her bridal style.at least once
>>24974251I think the damage has been done enough already on that point. It's better than with Iori with Midori's MIND HIDING BULLET SKILLS but yeah, she's already a weak spot.So putting her in our bed keeps her more safe in some respects.
>>24974251It's Noir quest, inevitably, no matter what we do, someone is going to target Midori.This is when we remind people that, despite our promotion, we are still the magical girl who slaughtered a building worth of professionals singlehandedly. And now? Now we have access to an entire Officio at our beck and call.>>24974263I like this plan.
>>24974236>or safe to go back to her family.When we first turned Midori, we asked QB to put her parents under guard because they might get targeted by Jyuubey. QB said that no normal Incubator would fall so low, but he said that since the 10th was such a rogue, that he would make sure of Midori's parents safety.They might have even been relocated. Also, fights between Magical Girls seems like it would be something forbidden between Officio's. It takes energy to create a Meguca, energy that is subtracted from the Incubator's own store of Grief Seed energy that's supposed to go towards their quota. Enough Meguca's die, and it'll result in a significant reduction in Incubator energy collection operations. You'd think that the Home Office would have severe penalties for things that could negatively affect the operation.
>>24974209No promises but I'm sticking it in the backlog pile.
>>24974251Remember, Midori is already our aide and, though less known, tied to our soul gem. It's not like someone with bad intentions wouldn't already go after her, regardless of any intimate implications.
>>24974251Someone already used Mami to get to Chiaki before. It'll be impossible to function if we're afraid of one of our buddies is going to be abducted and used as a bargaining chip. It comes with the territory.Anyone else think we should go get a bento for Pinky or go to the coffee shop early and share a drink with her? She may need some placating fairly soon.
>>24974288That's going to corrupt her Soul Gem like nobody's business.>>24974303>>24974310>>24974319>>24974320Point taken, we'll just have to follow up on asking Kyouko/Sayaka to train her in fighting.As for Pinky, can we do it after Iori?
>>24974315>ights between Magical Girls seems like it would be something forbidden between Officio'sdo you not recall the bit where Amnesic Murderface/Girl A slaughtered thirty-odd meguca whop were planning to ambush and kill her party?
Uhhh.. Do you guys think its good idea to leave Midori alone while we are away? After all Jyubey has been hellbent about getting her back. I don` think he gave up after sacrificing one Meguca just so he could get us and Midori with a witch.The safest place until we come back is probably the Officio building. So just let her sleep in our Warmaster-Bedroom.
For all we know Midori already has a nice apartment, we don't need to shoe her into our bed as rapidly as possible. If we're not careful, we'll be the ones with the stalker reputation instead of her.
>>24974312>This is when we remind people that, despite our promotion, we are still the magical girl who slaughtered a building worth of professionals singlehandedly. And now? Now we have access to an entire Officio at our beck and call.Prepare the assault>b-but warmaster, they have heavy gun emplacements, snipers, even some tamed witches. if we attack scores of puella magi will dieHundreds
>>24974363Then we ask her first then, see if she wants to.Refer to:>>24974263
>>24974343It was less the 'ambush and kill' and more the 'rape Mami' that set her off.>>24974348She'll be with Kyouko.
>>24974343Yes, I was in those threads, but I'm saying that from a purely energy profit-oriented view, it's inefficient and wasteful. So either Home Office doesn't have that tight of a control, there's competition between the Incubators that's encouraged by the system, or the energy collection is only secondary to something else, since the Third just up and left his Meguca/Grief Seed collection duties to engross himself more fully in the pure acquisition of human wealth.
>>24974364>Murderface is now stannis the mannis
>>24974348>Uhhh.. Do you guys think its good idea to leave Midori alone while we are away?She'll be with Kyouko. She should be fine.>>24974363>or all we know Midori already has a nice apartment,Given that that apartment would have been provided by Juubey, it's compromised and no longer available.
>>24974363>Midori already has a nice apartmentOne which is already compromised since it's one that she would have had when she was Contracted with Jyuubey.
>>24974343And that thing got Girl A executed, remember?
>>24974387Also, given the kind of jobs she was being given and her relative standing in Juubey's Officio, any apartment she had would probably have been a shithole.
>>24974381If I remember right, there is no Home Office. The Incubators were basically TPed here and tasked with doing the same thing they did in Canon Meguca. Only difference is, they decided to be more "professional" about it. No oversight from any higher authority apart from themselves.
>>24974399home office is the moon
>>24974392Poor Girl A. I hope she's tipping back 40's with Malal in Meguca Heaven.
>>24974263I love it
>>24974413Really? I was under the impression that Kyuubey was in charge of that.
>>24974425No, the First runs that. And he's not even the big boss.>htseekr resonatedCaptcha's getting all sci-fi on me.
>>24974425The First owns the Moon Base; he allows other Incubators to visit sometimes, and it's used as a neutral meeting place when the Incubators have a general meeting.
>>24974251It's gonna happen anyways. She already our aide.
>>24974263Absolutely love this.
>>24974425>>24974455Heh, the moon base is just going to suffer the Worf effect.Once pinky wakes up she is going to say"Lets give perverts their due" And destroy the entire base with one arrow.
>>24974486They have it coming for peeking at her unhatched grief seed, the voyeur perverts.
>>24974555Does that technically count as CP?
>>24974018 >>24974019 >>24974022 >>2497410 >>24974094You take a moment to compose yourself, before shutting the door to Midori's room to ensure your privacy. You toss the hat - that fucking hat - onto one of the chairs in the far corner of the room, away from you, away from Midori, before making your way to her bedside. Holding out the packed lunch to the recovering Callidus.Nothing...happened, you reply after a moment. Nothing worth talking about, anyway. Just work. It's always work.But you didn't run to get here, no. Just...you were just in a hurry, after all. In a hurry to get her lunch, before the nurses come around to serve her infirmary food, which you would never wish upon anyone."You...you didn't have to, though, sempai. The food's not...that good, but it's not that bad either." Midori is blushing as she says this, though, and you see her carefully closing the sketchpad, placing it on her side table along with her pencil - before taking the packed lunch from your hands and placing it on her lap. She starts to unwrap it, taking her time in untying the knotted ends of the wrapping cloth. "You didn't have to go through the trouble, sempai..." She protests again, in a quieter voice.You frown at this, before shaking your head. It's fine, you tell her. You've had enough of sitting behind desks and being stared at for one day. In any case, she should eat before the bento gets cold, or something."A-ah. Well, thank you all the same, sempai--" Midori starts to thank you for the meal, when the both of you finally see the bento you've picked. "Oh. Oh, um." She squeaks, while you could only blink, aghast.You've picked the one in the pink packed lunch case, with the hearts all over it. The Waifu Special, a playful, cute way for the more amorous of magical girls in the Officio to 'confess' to someone. [1/2]
>>24974601That adds some disturbing implications to what was meant to be a stupid joke...
Are people still thinking about the assassination attempt due on Mami? I've been considering it and I think it's past due we gave Midori something to do so why don't we have Midori guard Mami. This would also make sure that Midori would be safe from Jyubey. Once she's well again and until we have some more concrete information on what's after Mami, of course
>>24974642I personally think we should have people looking out for Oriko.
>>24974621"...It's...it's got the pickled red ginger arranged in a heart formation, sempai. A-and the rice has little salmon hearts in it." Midori whispers in almost reverent awe. Her cheeks completely crimson now. "Look, even the sausages are cut into hearts." It's then that she looks up at you. "Sempai, I...I mean...I don't know what to say...""Shut up and eat before you get an ulcer. It doesn't mean anything."Simply stare back in stony silence and gesture for her to have a nice meal.Stammer unintelligibly and try to divert the topic to something else.
>>24974642That's what we would've asked Kyuubey about, via "The Prophet".Sounds like a good idea though, if not for the fact that Mami seems to be Kyuubey's personal secretary at the moment.
>>24974659>"Shut up and eat before you get an ulcer. It doesn't mean anything."

>>24974841Dude. 3 threads in a row? I know I love it, but I hope you are sleeping enough, man.
Heard from a colleague once that when they attacked a witch, ash sprayed out. Another one said that when she killed a familiar, it just disappeared. Never had those problems myself.What had formerly been a vast field of smooth ice had become an endless lake of blood as my knife struck true over and over, rupturing babbling wooden figures on crude ice skates like they were gibbering sacks of meat (though I was grateful they weren’t; the one barrier I’d been in with meat familiars was an experience I didn’t want to repeat). Near as I could tell, there was no end to them – we’d engaged the witch early. Badly. Underestimated it, and V rushed in.She wanted to get messy. V loves getting messy on a hunt.It was hard to blame her. It felt good. Too much of our time lately’d been spent training the FNGs, since Touchdown fucked everything up. The whole Corps was edgy, pent-up. No retirements lately, and no retirements meant no fun for the Rabbits. We were only here at all because the Prima realized that some of us were stir-crazy enough to start busting heads in the city if we didn’t get out soon. Not that the city was any safer if she wasn’t out picking on witches most of the time, but at least this way we got to stretch our legs.So thanks to V’s blood fetish, we were being gangfucked by pirouetting soldiers and liable to drown in their insides before we cleared enough of them, and every single one we let swirl around for more than a moment pulled a crappy wooden rifle on us that fired crappy wooden bullets that moved at a crappy several hundred miles per fucking hour.(1/6)
>>24974867Took about thirty familiars and three shots to the chest before I got sick of that. Don’t like using magic if I can help it – makes the nightmares worse – but in record time I made my way over to V and the latest dismembered puppet she was ramming her scissors into, and I grabbed her arm. Told her we had to haul ass and whipped up a broom. Flying is one of my better tricks, but not my favorite by a long shot. Doesn’t feel all that freeing when you can feel everything of yourself that you’ve managed to hold onto ticking away while you do it. …Actually, it feels pretty much like shit. So she grabbed onto me and we took off like bats out of hell. I could feel her soul gem resonate as she switched right to cover fire, a minefield of furniture and small objects – dressers, mirrors, and knives, mostly, with the occasional teapot and a clock now and again (and once or twice I swear she pulled out a soda machine) – that began to shake and hurtle toward the familiars below like so many shooting stars. A number were blasted off-course by their godawful toy rifles, but that didn’t matter. It was as much a bunch of shields as anything.Once we were off the plateau of ice, it was easy to spot the witch, a tiny, misshapen creature like a colorful octopus with long, sickly-looking limbs stretched in all directions, whirling and juggling arenas like the one we’d just escaped to a merry-go-round tune. The sound was distorted, like it was being played from a shitty radio from the 1930’s. It tossed its huge landforms around as though they were paper plates - that was how it got us before. All it had to do was land a hit and it’d send us to the surface of one of those things again, for another bloodbath and another assload more magic use than I wanted to deal with.(2/6)
>>24974872I bolted for the main body as quick as I could force my little broom to go, and as we’d expected – and feared – its attention turned from its harmless spinning to our asses. The first swing I managed to skirt by a hair, and the second was held back with a deluge of objects just long enough for us to slip by. The third…The world melted around me as I summoned my stoplight, right on the edge of my broom. Everything took on a dull, fleshy tint, and I squeezed my eyes shut as the light flicked from green to yellow. That was enough. That would be enough to get us through, I hoped. …Any further and it’d have to get uglier than I liked to go.There was a whoosh overhead, the sound of us narrowly avoiding its swing, but we’d barely gotten a breath before an impact sent us tumbling down, the broom and light both vanishing as soon as I wasn’t focusing on ‘em. The witchtopus had split down the middle, and the figure of a thin young woman made of the same prismatic jelly emerged, her head tilted unnaturally to the side as it shared neckspace with thicker, stronger tendrils. I guessed one of those was what dismounted us right before I hit the ground with an uncomfortable gloop.It wasn’t an ideal landing, but I had it better than V. She didn’t scream – I knew she wouldn’t – but V, it had caught. It was afraid of V, V could have stopped it. On her way down she’d scissored right through a couple of its limbs, I think, and it was returning the favor. It even dropped its shitty arenas to latch onto her with more of its limbs, one to each of hers, with another around her waist and another around her neck.I couldn’t hear the noise it made when it ripped her arm off, and I’m sort of glad. I couldn’t help her there. Couldn’t get to her fast enough.Not sure yet how I feel about that.It was then that I heard the Prima. She said later she was worried about us, about how long it took. That’s why she’s the Prima, I guess.(3/6)
>>24974876The air filled with noise, when the Prima would transform. It was like hanging around Malal, sort of. Didn’t make my teeth itch, but it did…something. Seemed to make everyone sick in a different way. The world would twist when she used her magic, like it didn’t make sense anymore. Like seeing in three dimensions was no different than looking at a painting of a sunset, and realizing that there was no depth to it. To say nothing of the…things, just playing around at the edge of your vision. It was horrible the first time and it never really got better. Most people start crying. Or throwing up. Usually both.She didn’t seem to care about anything that was going on as she walked along the gooey ground. The witch’s whole barrier seemed to shiver as it took on that painting-like quality, and it dropped V like a sack of bleeding stumps (which was shockingly close to an accurate descriptor). There was a gleam as the Prima whispered to her patrons, the gleaming, golden scythes she’d recently taken up. I couldn’t hear what she said to the witch before she leapt on her, but I knew. V did too, and without even thinking, we mouthed the words along with her:“Die for me.”---(4/6)
>>24974883Fear isn’t something the girls of the Wonderland Corps, the Rabbits, feel anymore. It’s something bred out of us by experience, something stolen from us by our demons. To some of us, becoming magical girls was our only chance to save ourselves from our own darkness. To some of us, it was the chance to rend and slaughter, to devour our enemies. To give in to our anger and our hate, to unleash our terrible beasts. To most of us, though…it was both. We threw away fear long before we became Eversors. We were monsters long before we were magical girls.I like to think that’s what brought us all together. Why we all gathered around the Prima…around Annie. Our Lady. Our Alice. The Eversor Prima of the Eighth Officio Assassinorum, as well as its Equerry. She called us Rabbits, her heralds, the hounds of her war against the things no human should know. We were first response for anything worth worrying about, hopping down the rabbit holes and running like hell to break up the tea party before anyone’s head had to come off. Before Annie and her fucked-up Wonderland arrived.The dead and the damned are the only ones who can walk away, once she does. The only ones who can sleep again, seeing what she sees.---(5/6)
>>24974841Get plenty of rest, Decu! We love your quest, but be sure to take enough time to recuperate in between each one plus work!
>>24974838If delivered with a glare, then yes.>>24974841Decu, do the Incubators have a Home Office or that they report to, and receive their quota requirements from?What happened to the Third once he gave up the energy collection business?>>24974854Softened up a little, yeah, but some people seem intent on making Chiaki into some kind of Shy-chan knockoff.
>>24974889“…You don’t look so good.” Eve’s quiet tones invade my thoughts as I slide in next to her at our local Burger Suplex (located across the street from a particularly crappy apartment complex – ‘secondary personnel housing’ my ass). She looks like she’s seconds away from throwing up, but then, she always does when I come back from a hunt. And then we always come here.Don’t feel like eating much – I don’t eat all that much, anyway – but I know she’ll throw a fit if I don’t eat something, especially if I look as shitty as I feel. …Even I can’t deny the food here’s good, though. Good enough to vomit back up again, worse comes to worst. Wouldn’t be the first time. I grunt at her, hoping she’ll lay off for a change. Eve is a smart kid, but she can get pretty nosy. And she’s a dour little thing, reminds me of myself when I was that age.That’s not good. At all.“…You’re upset. …Everyone came back, right?” As always, her voice is completely even. …If I hadn’t passed up Ol’ Batshit’s offer before she left, Eve’d probably be my second-in-command in the Callidus Corps. Only ever saw her cry once, and she joined this shit way younger than I did. Used to think there was something wrong with her, but she’s just…tough as hell. Tougher than me, probably. Not a fighter, or a killer. Not even a psychopath. Just…tough. “…The Prima had to step in.” That’s enough to make Eve wince. “Almost lost V. Got her arms ripped off. She was still throwing a tantrum when we dumped her off in medical.” Alright. A large Hassy and a Hurricanrana combo. Guess I can eat something.(6/6)

Today's chapter will be a tad short. Explanation on why at the end.------------------- Odette leaned against the wall outside of her apartment building, tapping her foot in a puddle as costumed magical girls shuffled in and out of the entrance. In addition to whatever frilly, girlish affair they were assigned, each girl wore a white cape with gold trimmings over her left shoulder - the symbol and uniform of the Valkyrie squad, the very best the Seventeenth Officio had to offer. Even Odette remembered a time when she was among their rank, some four or five years previous.She couldn't help but reminisce about the old days as she waited. How long had it been since she'd actually fought a witch? How long had it been since she'd done the damn job she'd signed up for all those years ago? There were three other fresh recruits when she had first joined up. One had moved out West, to take charge of Vancouver HQ, the other two had been among the first to go missing in the past month. As far as Odette knew, that left her as one of the two members of the Seventeenth Officio that had been around the longest. She couldn't think of anyone left that had been around prior to her, save perhaps Holly and Molly. Those two seemed to have always been members of the Officio.It was an odd feeling, being one of the last of a generation. Before anyone came Warmaster Brie, the first warmaster of the Seventeenth and the first member of the Officio on record. Odette had always seen her as an older sister figure, which was part of why she'd taken her death the hardest of anyone. Brie had groomed her, in a way, to become the second warmaster. Some said that after her death, Odette changed. A small, imperceptible change, but a change that would nonetheless snowball into something much bigger.
The one-eyed girl shook her head just as she caught the sound of heels clicking on pavement. Odette tilted her head up. Two white-shouldered guards followed in step with Therese Witton, the third warmaster of the Seventeenth. Her flowing overcoat wavered behind her, giving the impression of a king's cloak - an image all the more reinforced by her obscenely tall cap. As she approached Odette, Therese gestured toward the two guards with her chin and watched closely as they disappeared into the towering apartment complex. Odette held out her hand, expecting the traditional greeting of Eversors. "Long time no- GHRK."Instead, Therese threw her arms around the silver-haired girl, pulling her in tight. Odette tried her best to return the hug, but it was complicated somewhat by Therese being a full head taller than the tiny former warmaster."I missed you," the taller girl mumbled, holding the other girl as closely as she could."Ni- Nice to see you, too, Terry," Odette wheezed. "Please don't kill me."Therese slowly released the squirming magical girl and gently patted her head. "Sorry, sorry. It's just... been a while.""Two months by my count," Odette stated, nodding. "How's the job been?"Therese shook her head and sighed, leaning her shoulder on the wall next to Odette. "It's not fair, really. You made it look so easy. I wasn't exactly expecting...""Everything.""Pretty much," the warmaster let out another long breath as she tried to compose herself. "I've been overseas four times in the past month. The others have been helpful but it's still difficult to get used to." Therese smiled as she looked down at Odette. "How's retirement been?"“It's been fine,” the silver-haired girl mumbled.“And of course by that you mean it's not fine,” the warmaster replied, saying everything that the smaller girl couldn't bring herself to.Odette's one blue eye swivelled up, glaring at the rusty-haired girl.
>>24974902At least we can get back to collecting them and finally calling Pinky out.Why can't I shake the feeling that things are only going to go pot from here on out?
Are the writeups necessary to read, and who are they done by?
"I'll take that as a yes, then," Therese said, smiling to herself in smug satisfaction. "You don't have to keep this up, you know. This little... self-imposed exile of yours has gone on long enough, wouldn't you say?""Doesn't seem like the world's giving me much choice," Odette replied."Seems that way," the warmaster smiled as she turned her head up to the apartment building. “What exactly happened? I've been hearing some... strange reports.”"I, uh, got a bit mopy earlier. Drove around for a few hours," Odette's shoulders slumped for just a moment, long enough that she couldn't quite manage to disguise it as a shrug. "Came home to a smashed window and a creepy ass note.""Can I see it?"Odette fished around in her pocket for a few seconds before pulling out the crumpled piece of paper and holding it up to Therese."I see you're as careful about these things as always," the taller girl observed, gingerly taking the paper between two fingers, as if it would disintegrate with so much as a sharp breath. With a delicate touch, she unfolded it, her eyes scanning its contents. "This is... something. That's for sure.""You're tellin' me."Therese flipped it around, looking the paper over back to front. "What do you think it means?""Going line by line?" Odette plucked the sheet from Therese's hands and pursed her lips. "First part doesn't really need much explanation. Tests before me... the disappearances? I need to find who's been taking our girls?""Could be," the warmaster offered, shrugging. "It would be a hell of a coincidence if this didn't have anything to do with them."Odette nodded before continuing. "'Her gracious boon'," she paused and slapped the paper against her palm as she thought. "No idea what that could mean. But 'Her' is capitalized. That's gotta mean something.""Like a god," Therese mumbled. "Ess. Goddess. Since it's a her and all.""This 'Blessed Lady'.”
The warmaster nodded, holding her cap in place as she did. "Precisely. Next?""Gets weird after that," the one-eyed girl explained, scrunching her brow. "I may defeat 'the Usurper'. The fuck does that mean?""Me maybe?""Don't flatter yourself," Odette laughed, nudging the warmaster with her elbow. "Not like I want to take you down. The hat looked dumb on me anyways.""I always wondered why you stopped wearing it...""Story for another day," Odette grumbled as she shook her head. "And the last bit about the singing and the animals... I don't really care to find out."Therese nodded several times as she rubbed her chin. "I'll ask Molly if she can find anything out about this 'Blessed Lady'. Maybe Holly, too, for good measure.""I've got Gerty and Freddy hunting leads," the silver-haired girl added, "I'll check in with them. I'm guessing fatty'll want to see me.""A debriefing at the least," Therese smiled as she let out a few muted laughs. "He'll be happy to see how serious you're taking this. Probably expected you to take it slower, if at all.""Thought I'd let my lackeys handle it, eh?" Odette asked as a smirk crept across her face."In much more pleasant terms, I think. But yes."The former warmaster's smile drooped as she made a few shallow nods. "Seems like the assumption most would make."The current warmaster looked down at Odette, then slowly leaned over as she rested her head on top of the shorter girl's. "Not everyone," she whispered, smiling gently, "boss.""You're cruel," Odette muttered as she laughed to herself. "It's after midnight. Go home and get some sleep, kiddo. I'll handle things from here.""Just a little longer," the warmaster mumbled, rubbing her cheek into the top of Odette's hair. "I order it.""Idiot."***
The next day, or much later in the current one, Fredrica Volk stepped out of one of the Officio's many interrogation rooms. Another witness with nothing to say. No, not exactly nothing. Just more of the same. Little noise, the odd muffled scream here and there, a strange smell and always at night. Only one new piece of evidence, and it was nearly useless. A nervous young Vindicare had sworn she'd seen a figure bounding over the rooftops after her partner was taken. A figure carrying something shiny and metallic, something that she'd claimed was golden. Great. So they could establish that it was, in fact, SOMEONE that had taken the girls. Someone with a penchant for gaudy accessories. Freddy shook her head and leaned her shoulder against the wall. It was always busy at midday, and that particular afternoon was no exception; girls in all assortment of costume passed back and forth, coming and going from various appointments. Occasionally one or two would stop to admire the boyish Eversor - the fact that her costume looked very much like a butler's suit had always attracted the attention of some of the girls. Not that Freddy minded one bit.She still couldn't shake that sense of failure, though. Having so little to show for the first task the former warmaster had given her in months. Failing in general was one thing, but failing Odette was something that Freddy simply couldn't fathom. The stress had only built as she questioned each witness, turning up with nothing each time. The Eversor balled up her fists in frustration as she looked up and down the hall.
>>24974858Hahaha, no! Just better time management!>>24974864Yes, of course! This is just a slight break in it, as Chiaki gets used to being Warmaster! Who knows, maybe in one of the missions they'll come up!>>24974866>>24974862>>24974892I'm sleeping enough, please don't worry!>>24974893They do! It's with the meetings with the First.

>>24974936Because this whole quest is about things going way off course and trying to correct them, and we just finished a huge arc about correcting things and expositing, which means it's time for shit to go bad again.
And then she heard it. That distinct click-clack of footsteps that just echoed with authority. It wasn't the warmaster, oh no. Freddy sneered. She was already spoiling for a fight and even her usual fans had sense enough to give her space. But there was one individual who never seemed to be able to read the atmosphere, one whom Freddy loathed above all others. Tyler Argente. Oh how much she'd like to just tear out those damned hairclips and gouge her eyes out with them."Volk," the Vindicare called out, picking her way through the crowd. "I'd hoped I would catch you.""Oh yeah?" Freddy asked, her voice laced with venom. "What for?""I simply wished to offer my condolences about Miss Norton, nothing more," the aide said. "I understand it has been hard on the Valkyries."Freddy nodded, turning to lean her back against the wall. "Mostly for the younger ones, but thanks anyways," she answered. Part of her hoped the other girl would simply leave it at that. Just offer her sympathies and be on her way, but Freddy knew it was only a matter of moments before the other shoe dropped."Just a shame they assigned the case to Brighton," Tyler said, laughing to herself. "I spoke to her the other day and she was the same as ever."And there it was, all the excuse Freddy needed to pick a fight. She barely even noticed the sudden weight in her hand as the switchblade dropped into her palm. Nobody insulted Odette on her watch. The black haired girl grinned, baring her teeth ever so slightly. "Yeah, I heard about that. Rumour is that you picked a fight and got into scuffle. They say she really put you in your place."Tyler narrowed her eyes by a hair. "What exactly do you mean by that?""Just thought I'd give you some advice," the Eversor hissed, putting her arm around the aide's shoulders. "I wouldn't mess with Odette if I were you. Not sure if you've noticed, but she's still pretty damn popular with folk around here.""Is that so," the aide growled back.
"You've already made yourself a fair few enemies, Ty," Freddy smirked. "Don't want to make them too upset now. The Officio would be a mess without you. Think of all the pencils that would go unpushed.""Are you threatening me, Eversor?"Freddy only laughed. "Wouldn't dream of it. Just thought I'd give you a friendly warning," she replied. She'd already lost herself in the thrill of the moment. Her grip tightened around the Vindicare's shoulders, pulling her in tighter, and whispered. "I've heard there's been some disappearances lately. People might not think much of it if you up and vanish."The boyish magical girl barely had time to finish the sentence before she felt something thump against her neck. In that same instant, the blade of her knife sprung out, seemingly by itself. Tyler held her pistol crossbow under Freddy's chin, while the other girl held her blade millimetres from the aide's throat. Neither of them was in any mood to hold back, and they both knew it."Don't think I can just let a remark like that slide, Volk," Tyler growled. "You can't hide behind Odette anymore. No one's going to come rescue you now.""You think you're tough shit," Freddy spat. "You ain't equerry just yet, and at this rate you never WILL be.""And I highly doubt you'd put your promotion at risk over something so trivial," the Vindicare paused, trying her best to turn and look Freddy in the eye while keeping the Eversor's blade off of her neck. "Stand. Down. Neither of us needs this."
A second passed. Then another, and another after that. Finally, Freddy nodded as her switchblade retracted of its own accord. She felt the pressure on her neck fall away and dropped her arm from the aide's shoulders. As the Eversor slowly came to her senses, she couldn't help but notice the sizeable audience the show had gathered. "You're right, you're right," Freddy laughed, backing up and holding her hands in the air. "Why beat you up as an equal when I can wait a week or two and beat you up as a superior, right?""Not exactly what I had in mi-""But!" The Eversor exclaimed, stepping back up to Tyler and leaning in. "Just remember. You may have caught her off guard and got her eye, but remember who it was that was chopped up into so many pieces that Fubey was out of the game for two days after putting her back together again. So you could at least show a little respect.""Why you-""Listen," Freddy grinned, stepping off to the edge of the crowd. "It's been fun, but I've got stuff to do." She turned to leave, but tilted her head back after a thought crossed her mind. "Oh, and cute band-aid by the way. Really suits you."Tyler simply shook her head in awe at the other girl's audacity as she disappeared into the crowd. As much as she hated to admit it, there was something to be said for the Eversor's boldness and loyalty. It was almost admirable, in a way. Still shaking her head, Tyler walked away in the opposite direction, the crowd making way for her and dissipating shortly after she made her exit.
>>24974984Alright, so. I usually aim for 3000 words per chapter, but this time I went a little overboard and hit just under 4000. There were certain things I had to tie up before moving on to chapter 6, but not enough material add a whole extra chapter. So, in the interests of not totally shitting up the after-thread ambiance (as if I don't already), I've split chapter five into two halves. Really, the two are meant to be read together, but whatchagonnado. So if today's chapter seemed a bit short and incomplete, that's because there's meant to be more to it. Good news is, there's a thread tomorrow so I can post it right away.
Hey WendywritefagDoes she pretty much have all the Effects from her Captain Ersatz Progenitor [Madotsuki] at her beck and call?
archival why you drop crimsonwhy
>>24974939Not necessary, but always an awesome read. Do it if you have the time, I haven't regretted it.
>>24975004That's fine, but damn, if Decu's gonna keep up this pace for any length of time you're gonna be writing a lot for this. Of course, you can always just skip some threads if you run out of time to write.
>long ass day at work>come home>missed MGNQ>all of my tired anger
>>24975017I gotta agree with this sentiment, was enjoying crimson more than this
>>24975006More or less, with a number of others. Generally speaking, if she can dream it, she can make it happen up to a certain point.
I'm loving the after-thread write-ups, hope you guys keep up the good work!
>>24975046Come in early tomorrow, friend.Or be angry again, once more.
>>24975017>>24975049Crimson SHOULD be back late-summer. I put it on hiatus at first because I was getting too sick to run it, then continued it because reasons. It will be back, don't worry.>>24975025PUSH IT TO THE LIMITWALK ALONG THE RAZOR'S EDGEDON'T LOOK DOWN, JUST KEEP YOUR HEADAND YOU'LL FINISH
>>24975124OR BE FINISHED AND BE DONE ANYWAYS
>>24974957If the there is an Incubator Home Office, why does it encourage Officio's to waste investments of Grief Seed energy on fights between Meguca's?
>>24975149From memory Deculture said they do have a home office but it doesn't really have any contact with the earthbound IncubatorsThe closest they have is the first who has a moon base that oversees all the other officios and monitors things in space
>>24974841 Thanks Decu.
The lack of Pinky pains my heart.Midori is so fucking bland.
>>24976219I concurMidori was more interesting when we had her point of viewperhaps we should get her to upgrade to chiaki in private instead of sempai all the time..
Holy fuck, the thread is still alive!Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDI'm not going to be updating it until the weekend though as it takes over an hour to convert and upload it as is and I don't want to do that every day.
