You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently being fucked with. ...It's certainly a nostalgic feeling, really. You'd been wondering when things would start being terrible again. Just like how they used to be.
>>25638718It's to be said that you've dealt with the rich and powerful before. People with too much money and too little sense, people who make a living doing nothing but have other people work themselves to death in cubicle farms for them. Suprisingly, only a handful had really given you that itch to give them a Vindicare makeover on the spot. Most of them had simply been clueless, sheltered folk oblivious to how the world outside of their money nest actually worked and toiled. Some had even been nice to you, just hardworking folk who'd managed to get into new money and were simply trying to protect themselves from the sudden appearance of long-lost friends and relatives looking for a cut. Harmless, to an extent.But Kirishima Ruri, the most powerful and successful idol in the world - and your current principal - seems to be doing her utmost best into tempting you into reducing her pretty little face into a ragged, fleshy hole you can put your entire arm right through.[1/2]
>>25638719It's not just orchestrating the world's worst cover for a bodyguard by rigging a contest her fans were screaming themselves hoarse for. It's not just creating a convoluted setup that took you completely by surprise, someone who's supposed to be trying her best to make sure she doesn't get killed or raped or both. And it's certainly not just her being petty enough about you mucking up her plan - sending Sayaka in as the sacrificial lamb instead of yourself - that she even had Iori, of all people, rehearse with her a script involving magical girl lesbians fucking each other. No, it's all of those, all wrapped up neat and tidy with this...twenty-four hour webcast thing that's going on at the moment, delivered via a camera wielded by a sweaty, narrow-shouldered bundle of inferiority complexes and eyebags and hair that could stand to be washed a bit more thoroughly.This is being Warmaster? This is what Kharn dealt with in a daily basis?This isn't worth the office, or the apartment, or the hat. It's not even worth the tiny pleasure you take from seeing Sayaka squirm every time she sees you and knowing that if you told her to jump, her first immediate reply would have to be 'how high' - and any variation of 'fuck you Murderface' would be the second.If it weren't for the fact that...that Mami is counting on you, then...well, you don't know what you'd do. Quit in a huff, probably. Hand in your resignation, cash in everything, and hunt witches on your own. Just leave.There are also other reasons, you suppose. There's Midori, who you have to take care of. Misaka, who you've heard is getting courted by other Officios to head their R&D staff. And Kyoko, who you're frankly worried about sometimes, what with her being so fucking nice and trusting that you half-expect her dying by sacrificing herself for someone she doesn't even know. [2/3]
>>25638723...Shit. That's a lot of reasons.What the fuck ever happened to being the Magical Girl with nothing to lose? Well, if anything, you've got a lot to lose if you start fucking up again. Including your temper, if this idol doesn't stop testing you.As you consider the foot-high pile of pancakes in front of you - the butter desert eagle on the uppermost pancake slowly and gently melting into the syrup - it's with as much blinding hate you can muster that you swivel your gaze at Ruri, and the girl holding the camera beside her. You focus your entire being into willing the handheld broadcasting device to explode, and to have a shard of its camera lens spear off and bury itself deep into Ruri's soft, mushy brain. No doubt Deepthroat's hands would be reduced to useless, bloody twigs of splintered bone, but them's the breaks.. . .Of course, that doesn't really happen. Instead, you play along with the new cover she'd given you - that of being a Murder Mayumi cosplayer. You grumble something about how it simply comes as second nature to you. You thought they'd be satisfied with the answer and get you out of the camera's line of sight, but apparently you're still in the limelight. Ruri's smile turning into a grin."...And get that fucking camera out of my face before I shoot it," You find yourself growling, before you could stop yourself. Deepthroat visibly shakes at this, the camera rattling in her hands, and she probably would've fallen back had it not been for Ruri steadying her with a hand.It's here that you see her wink at you, a quick gesture - before she places herself directly in front of the camera, blocking you from view, addressing the audience.[3/4]
>>25638728"Hee! That's definitely Murder Mayumi-chan, all right! See, viewers? That's how Chiaki-chan takes cosplaying seriously! It's an entirely new level, super maniac rank S-S-S!" Ruri giggles here. "But don't worry, you'll see her a lot in this webcast, and also in the concert, so stay tuned! And now, a word from our sponsors!" She nods at Deepthroat, who then presses something on the camera and lowers it."Whew. Finally." The idol lets out a sigh, rolling her shoulders. "That was rough." She turns towards her sweaty personal assistant. "How was I, then?""G-green..." Deepthroat murmurs, her eyes wide. "Very...very green, Ruri-sama.""Really?" A grin curls soft, perfect lips. "What kind of green?"Deepthroat takes a step back at this, stuttering all the while. "W-what kind? Uh...um...F-forest Green. Emerald. Viridian. A-any...any kind of green you want, Ruri-sama...""Aww. You're too nice to me, Noriko." She reaches over with a perfectly-manicured hand and pats the short, sweaty girl on the shoulder, before carefully wiping that hand with a tissue. "Now, please take Sayaka-chan to her room next door. Iori-chan, please accompany Sayaka-chan for the moment, as I need to speak with the Warmaster of the Ninth personally. I'll decide how long you get to stay in the box after that.""Mrnf?" Sayaka grunts, looking up from her plate quizzically - chewing rapidly and then swallowing, she repeats her muffled query. "W-what? But I'm not even done eating! I skipped breakfast getting here--""Just go, please, Sayaka-chan?" Ruri says coolly, but it's Iori who finally manages to make the blue Eversor relent. It's a good thing, too - you saw how Sayaka's free hand had reached down to her waist, as if to pull a weapon from underneath the table. Reflex, probably. You'll have to thank Iori later.[4/5]
>>25638733"...Please be careful, Chiaki-san," Iori murmurs as she passes you by, Deepthroat ushering both her and Sayaka out the door. With a click, you're now left alone with Kirishima Ruri - who had now taken this time to unpack a particularly suspicious-looking piece of luggage. One that's long, and heavy from the looks of it. She undoes the locks, throws it open - and you could smell a faint hint of gun oil even when you're almost facefirst into a pile of pancakes.Well. First time you've heard of an idol packing heat. Major heat, seeing as the customized sniper rifle she's now carefully assembling on the bed is almost nearly as big as the Anzio that Misaka used for ventilating Kirika....She's pretty good with assembling the damn thing, you note. It's a rather huge beast of a rifle, with the words 'Love Story' lovingly engraved into the body and stock. The scope itself has a rather cute-looking bright green ribbon tied around it."You'll have to forgive the mess. Noriko-chan is woefully slow about unpacking, and I end up having to do most of it myself." The idol suddenly says, apropos of nothing. "Why aren't you eating your pancakes? Aren't they your favorite?"How do you respond?
Huh. You really did make a new thread today, just as you promised.
Oh boy, the most exciting time of the day!>>25638764[x] "They're great. Ruri- do you mind if I call you that- are you trying to get me into bed, or piss me off? You seem like you've gone to a great deal of trouble to hint at a great deal of things."At the moment Chiaki probably can't care less for proper decorum. COMMUNICATION IS GOOD!
>>25638764>[x]"Yes there are my favorite. I wonder what else you love about me."
>>25638728>...Shit. That's a lot of reasons.>What the fuck ever happened to being the Magical Girl with nothing to lose?Oh shit son, are you going to change the police tape to "Do not cross a magical girl with everything to lose" ?
>>25638764"First things first. That little snag in your plans? That wasn't her fault. Pardon the warmaster's little eccentricities, if you would and let her off the hook.Honestly with how today has gone, I'm not really feeling all that hungry after all." Drink a glass of ice water, examine the piece and take in the surroundings for security. Time to do our job.
>>25638764[X] "Only if they're made by a certain someone."
You're on a roll, Decu.>>25638764"They are, but how do you know that? What are you trying to pull here anyway?"
She has a gun. Why does she have a gun?
>>25638764[X] "Whats with the gun?" Brace for timestop.
>>25638812She thinks we have a hard on for guns, duh. We only start shooting if she loads it with ammo.
>>25638764>[x] "I'm too busy trying to figure out whether you're trying to seduce me, piss me off, or both. Not to mention why you're currently assembling a sniper rifle"
>>25638791[x] This. And also try to talk her out of puting spaghetti in the box.So we can all agree on kill Ruri as soon as we get a good excuse right?
>>25638764[X]"With all the crazy shit that's been going on I wonder how I could be hungry."
>>25638829How about no
>>25638800[x] YesWe promised poor spaghetti to try and get her off the hook.
>>25638837When I say good excuse I mean good. Like discovering her evil scheme good. Still a no?
>>25638800[X] This, but also ask her whats with the gun, and brace to take her down or timestop if she loads it with ammo.
Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb>>25638764Voting for >>25638800 and >>25638826
>>25638844Depends on the scheme in question honestly. Most folk with power ARE Lawful Evil after all.If it doesn't concern us, our immediate acquaintances or our home, we can probably ignore it.
If she wanted to kill us, pulling out a superlong rifle and assembling it in front of us in the middle of a room is a pretty funny way of going about it. Still, always good to keep up the shadowruns.
Memo to self: phone or text Midori and Have Words with her about the whole "Murder Mayumi movie" thing.I forget, did Chiaki learn about the movie beforehand at some point? Or did we only just now find out?Also -- I can see Murderface being pissed off about the movie thing... but I'm actually a bit surprised and unsure about why everyone got so mad at this job in general.I mean... to me, her reasons for hiring us seem perfectly sensible and logical.>Land the voice-acting part for the newest popular yuri manga OVA>Know an idol who knows the girl that the doujin was based on>Learn this girl (who has recently actually been promoted to the head of her office/agency) is a bodyguard/assassin for hire>Decide to hire her as a bodyguard; she DID successfully guard Iori through two things most others might have died too>As a bonus, this could serve as a PR thing too, because she's like a Murder Mayumi cosplayer!>Offer to pay Kyubey lots of money for the trouble.Seriously, all this seems perfectly reasonable to me... I'm just not getting why people think that what Ruri did was unusual or out-of-bounds in some way.Seriously, it's just... Gah. She spends a lot of money to hire a bodyguard who would also hang out with her; and this gets her both a, well, bodyguard but also a PR boost to the upcoming video she'll be doing voice-acting for.
>>25638864Fair enough. I'm talking "the concert is going to end in mass hypnosis for her army of doom" type stuff here though. We shouldn't kill her just because she pissed us off of course.
>>25638873It's an OVA series, and yes, we knew about it, but not that it was this far along in production.
[x] What's with the gun?
>>25638764First off Noriko doesn't get any punishment, I chose to give that ticket to Sayaka and so you don't get to punish her over itThat is one hell of a gun for an idol to be packing, you aren't a gun model as well or anything are you?
>>25638873> I'm just not getting why people think that what Ruri did was unusual or out-of-bounds in some way.Lets see.She abuses her assistant.Sakaya was with her for ten minutes and already hates her guts.Iori's warning us to be careful.And now she has a fucking huge sniper rifle.THIS ISN'T SUSPICIOUS AT ALL.
>>25638873Honestly, part of me suspects that this really will turn out to be nothing more than Decu playing our paranoia, and there really is no dark plot at all.
Gentlemen!We have a good chance for more snooping here. If we can, and its out of sight, SNAG ONE OF RURI UTENSILS.We can use it to run the checks against the public record prints of Ruri, see if it matches the old ones we can lift off Sayaka's collection.Holy shit, WE CANNOT ALLOW HER TO BURN IT YET. We need that collection to cross reference the prints for CSI: Mikitahara
>>25638873Because Chiaki's at 25 shadowruns and Ruri's only making it spiral. Remember her talking to Iori about "I WILL MAKE MURDERFACE MINE, MWAHAHA!" in their meeting. That and she's making too many allusions to everything.
>>25638764[x] "Forget the pancakes dollface and level with me, I don't appreciate surprises if that wasn't already clear."
>>25638875Not without good reason of course.She is a well paying client. A very well paying one and it would not do for word to spread that QB Heavy kills its best clients.
>>25638893>She abuses her assistant.>Sakaya was with her for ten minutes and already hates her guts.>Iori's warning us to be careful.All of that can be explain as she's a rich and famous bitch.
>>25638764[x] "You seem to know an awful lot about me. So you should also be aware that killed people for a lot less than just pissing me off. Stop playing games with me, Kirishima Ruri."[x] Hairflick
Oh my god, Ruri is Ruby Rhod.
>>25638764[x]"I don't like to eat too much on the job. And we have to discuss certain restrictions on your activities, for your safety."
>>25638764[x] "You're a gun-aficionado? I don't know much about the idol-business, but I didn't have the impression sniper rifles featured heavily."
>>25638908Second worst case scenario we beat the crap out of her and call the cops.Worst case scenario is Bling Highlander.
>>25638893No, I mean... people were building up their hate WAY BEFORE this.It's one thing to *BECOME* suspicious from learning that Sayaka became disillusioned within 10 minutes and that this girl pulled out a sniper rifle -- but by that point, people seemed to have already hated her before that.Although, we should make a note to talk to Sayaka as to how exactly she became disillusioned in like 10 minutes. (If we don't just find out ourselves very fast anyway.)
>>25638893>She abuses her assistant.Diva>Sakaya was with her for ten minutes and already hates her guts.Diva with fake public persona>Iori's warning us to be careful.Iori got the bad end of her character. She obviously doesn't trust her. Nothing really that far fetched in the idol world.>And now she has a fucking huge sniper rifle.Money. Loads of money. More than one star likes guns and has a good gun collection.>THIS ISN'T SUSPICIOUS AT ALL.Unfortunately, all things that can be explained with far more mundane reasons, as of yet.Of course, this whole thing smells but we don't need to be violent or rude, yet.
>>25638928It's expectation I guess. We're in a quest thread, we expect her to be the villain of the week.
>>25638928Probably just because she actually met her hero and discovered how different she was to the image she had created in her mind from all the publicized information
>>25638930Well, I'm not advocating outright murdering her just yet. Doesn't mean we shouldn't keep our guard way up.>>25638928>No, I mean... people were building up their hate WAY BEFORE this.I think it started when the "have a good time with the Ninth Warmaster" was connected to the "I'm gonna steal Chiaki away from you Iori" thing. That kind of put a negative tint on things.Then we learned about the magical girl albums, and the doppelganger murder.Then she tried to fuck with us in the competition.
>>25638930she might give the rifle to us as a present, maybe she learned how to assemble it to impress us?
>>25638873>>25638930I hate it when we have retards in MGNQ-Threads.And somehow I´m pretty sure that you are the same douche that was arguing yesterday how we are Ruri`s Fucktoy now because HURR CONTRACT!Would you be so kind and use a trip so people can just filter you?
>>25638972The second guy you linked is just advocating caution, and explaining that all the suspicious stuff can just be explained away as coincidences or mundane stuff...so far, that is.
>>25638972Those are perfectly logical arguments. Please counter them rather than restort to name calling.
>>25638972Oh, so you're that retard from yesterday's thread. Kindly trip so that we can filter you and then go fuck yourself.
>>25638972>Rich entitled cunt acts like a rich entitled cunt>UNLIMITED SHADOWRUNS>SKY STATUS: FALLINGJust another day in MGNQ
>>25638988I didn`t even partake in yesterdays clusterfuck, you imbecile, but it kind of figures that you don`t even have the decency to use a trip.
>>25638972That guy was a fucking retard but neither of those posts are by him. Curb your suspicions, please.I don't want this thread to just devolve into another shitstorm. I managed to stop it last time but this time I'm lacking a reasonable middle ground suggestion.
>>25638962Of course. The whole thing smells. Once we get a chance we should have the support staff begin research into the past death. Just to make sure we're not dealing with a bodyswitcher.>>25638971I.. doubt it? It's even a named rifle and customised to boot. It's probably her personal weapon of choice. Things like that just aren't given away.>>25638972? I'm sorry, in what way am I advocating violence at this junction? Also, we're two differing anons as well.
>>25638996>Rich entitled cunt acts like a rich entitled cunt>In a setting where you can use money to buy magical assasin girls with golden weaponsIts like you don't even read the short stories that are posted at the end of the threads, magical girl terrorists are a thing.
>>25639003And neither do you, you idiot. So why don't you just fuck off?
>>25638873The problems are twofold.1. She knows an awful lot about us. We've only been the Warmaster for a very short period of time, and she seems to understand our ways and interests in guns and pancakes, and her bringing us to the very hotel, and the very ROOM that Iori was attacked in, on top of bringing in Iori in particular, and also the MMxMM thing we're attached to. There are a LOT of VERY CONVENIENT things being set up here, and it's suspicious, in addition to the fact that we still have no idea what her motive is.2: She's been a jerk with the mission itself, in the fact that she has tossed us the curveball of the rigged contest with no warning or prior discussion. Throwing us into strange scenarios with nothing ahead of time, and in very public places, isn't a very good way to treat your security detail. In addition, 24/hour webcasting is still a pretty big step above what we were expecting, which was probably more along the lines of "Probably stay inside most of the time where we'd have breathing room, but still go out on dates and events".
>>25639003>>25639013Both of you calm the fuck down and don't act like children.
Actually, why would an idol be good with a sniper rifle?
>>25639031Because she is a magical girl.
The sniper rifle is fucking with my mind. Handguns, fine, can be used for defense. But sniper rifles? What game is she hunting in the middle of the concert?Is it meant for us? If she knows as much about us as I think she does, she'd probably assume that we bring our own weapons. Unless hers is something special, specifically for killing whoever she has her sights on..
>>25639031Because she's really a Vindicare who killed Ruri and took her place.
>>25639031Because she's a robot, beep boopWe should set her up on a date with Tiny Pete.
Honestly, one possible explanation for the sniper rifle? (As well as the pancakes.) Is that she's actually a huge Murder Mayumi and/or Murderface fangirl. And the pancakes and gun is her way of trying to befriend us.>>25638962>I think it started when the "have a good time with the Ninth Warmaster" was connected to the "I'm gonna steal Chiaki away from you Iori" thing. That kind of put a negative tint on things.Okay, though... I think we'd broken up with Iori, like, before we even left for Siberia. The "steal her away" thing might have been Ruri making a joke -- or being a bitch to Iori.>Then she tried to fuck with us in the competition.Honestly, that sort of felt like a clever way to excuse a bodyguard's constant presence near her. A neat way to have a reason for a bodyguard.>Then she tried to fuck with us in the competition.That, I agree, is legitimately worrying. However, it COULD be the mundane explanation. Because sometimes the best way to feed paranoia is to have there not be a problem at all. Argh.>>25638972>>25638873 here.I went to sleep before previous thread finished. I don't think I ever posted in it at all -- or at least, I kept out of the... fucktoy or whatever comments.>>25639003I didn't participate in it either. That didn't stop you from attacking me out of nowhere.>>25639016>She knows an awful lot about us. We've only been the Warmaster for a very short period of time, and she seems to understand our ways and interests in guns and pancakesIts been a long time ago so I forgot, but... did Iori know about our pancakes thing?Alternatively, after she learned about us from Iori and decided to hire us, she called up Kyubey and started negotiating hiring us and asked Kyubey a ton of questions about what we were like and what we liked.>and also the MMxMM thing we're attached to. Okay yeah but as I pointed out, the MMxMM connection could be a reason FOR hiring us. Its not a coincidence in this case, its a deliberate PR thing.
>>25639016And again nothing she has said, done or organized so far is beyond what she could have gotten from Iori, publicly available information or the manga written about us
>>25639016Iori did mention that Ruri came to her in her time of need after the near-rape incident. If you'll recall, she even went shopping with her for the Butler and Maid uniform used in the massacre. She talks alot about Chiaki during this period and it is very likely that this is the source of intel on our likes and dislikes. She probably even knows about Mami's pancakes. Everything else has been shown to Iori at some point or the other too. As for MMxMM, its a pretty famous series at this point. Anyone could have spotted the more than passing resemblance. We should begin ringing the alarm bells IF she IDs Green Green, though.The second bit can be explained as Ruri going on a power trip. Shes amusing herself with the things she can do and obviously enjoys the idea of us and Iori dancing in her palm.
So anyway, I just realised I had this in my Miku folder.
>>25639035But given how public an idol's life is, it doesn't seem all that plausible that she could develop that talent without a lot of people knowing about it.I mean, it would've been one of the first things Sayaka would have mentioned when she gushed over Ruri. If she can hide that, who knows how deep the deception goes?
>>25639043>Then she tried to fuck with us in the competition.>That, I agree, is legitimately worrying. However, it COULD be the mundane explanation. Because sometimes the best way to feed paranoia is to have there not be a problem at all. Argh.Shit, I fucked up a copy+paste. I meant to quote this part:>Then we learned about the magical girl albums, and the doppelganger murder.Because this part WAS suspicious... but could also be nothing.
>All this drama and calls of samefagging and I haven't even posted yet.Hee.
>>25639043>Honestly, that sort of felt like a clever way to excuse a bodyguard's constant presence near her. A neat way to have a reason for a bodyguard.You know what might be another good reason for having a bodyguard?BECAUSE SHE IS A RICH AND POPULAR IDOL. KIDNAPPINGS, RAPES AND OTHER TERRIBLE THINGS WILL HAPPEN TO HER WITHOUT AT LEAST 4 BODYGUARDS.
>>25639054Sayaka thinks guns are for chumps and fights with a sword.Maybe the gun thing or how Ruri seems to like Murderface more than her were part of her disillusionment.
>>25639067But we don't look like a typical bodyguard. To joe public who doesn't know about magic girls we would look like a very strange choice of guardian.
>>25639054But is it?Her life as an idol is very public but she could disguise herself and do all sorts of things.Being a public figure might make it harder but if you have to do costumes / make up / etc in your daily life you could probably apply that to making you utterly unremarkable
>>25639072She wouldn't have been so cordial towards us if that were the case.
>>25639043The competition thing WAS a neat way to be a reason for a bodyguard - had she warned us about this at all. We were expecting to spend our time smoking in backrooms until needed for publicity stunts as her 'date' or to hang out at concerts, not to have to play as a deranged cosplayer of ourselves and superfan in front of cameras 24/7.
>>25639067>BECAUSE SHE IS A RICH AND POPULAR IDOL.This, why the fuck would a bodyguard need a cover-up?>>25639064Who the fuck are you
>>25639083No.He is Alpharius.
>>25639047>She probably even knows about Mami's pancakes.Hmm, come to think of it, didn't Mami take over from us at guarding Iori at some point? So Mami might've mentioned the pancakes think to Iori.>>25639067Yyyyeesss... But this way you get a bodyguard that people don't realize is a bodyguard. Hell, its even possible that our straight-up having guns would be excused as being part of our Murder Mayumi cosplay.>>25639088I thought I was Alpharius?
>>25639067Yeah, she's got all those big gorilla security types, but how is she going to excuse the teenage girl always hanging around her, that goes everywhere she goes, when the Officios make a modicum of effort in hiding their existence and the existence of Magical Girls. It'd look kind of weird for someone like Chiaki to always be hanging around Ruri for 4.5 days without SOME kind of explanation, and saying we're a bodyguard kind of exposes the Masquerade that the Incubators don't want exposed.Now, was it a bitch move to spring it on us without warning? Yes. Did she do it because she believes her security is compromised? A good possibility. Should we drop the assignment because of it? No.
>>25639073>To joe public who doesn't know about magic girls we would look like a very strange choice of guardian.Yes and? This is about the client not if the bodyguard's feelings are hurt because of the general public.
>>25639072Well, I get what you mean. But here's the thing: If Sayaka, being one of Ruri's biggest fans from early on in Ruri's career, didn't know about the sniper rifle stuff....Well, what else is Ruri capable of hiding? Like I said in my other post, an idol's life is very public. To be able to conceal something like that means she could be hiding god knows how many other dangerous things about her.
>>25639043>A neat way to have a reason for a bodyguard.Which she failed to inform us of.>did Iori know about our pancakesShe was hanging out with Mami.>its a deliberate PR thingWhich, once again, she failed to inform us of.>>25639078A troll, apparently.
>>25639051Duude. It all makes sense now.
>>25639093And then it all becomes moot when Sayaka informs us that she's also an Olympic-level sharpshooter which is part of her appeal.
>>25639089No. I am Alpharius.
>>25639092That was not my point at all. I was thinking more along the lines of people trying to dig around to find out why a skinny teen girl is working as a bodyguard, or people who would do her harm being encouraged to try something because her bodyguard is "just a girl".
>reading the previous thread>not immediately turning off the web-broadcast the moment we see itDamn imbeciles. Also, just because one camera is in the open does not mean it is the ONLY camera. There are probably many hidden cameras all around.
>>25639103No, I am!
>>25639091>and saying we're a bodyguard kind of exposes the Masquerade that the Incubators don't want exposed.There is no fucking masquarade and every Officio sents their girls on bodyguard contracts all the time.
>>25639047It does seem like something that a rich person with too much money to throw around and way too much spare time can put together. She's obviously charismatic, or just knows how people tick. Although I'm unsure if her being so blatant and flaunting all of her knowledge of Murderface & Murderface accessories is a good sign or not. Just can't shake the feeling that she might be connected with the fake Mami-head that was delivered to Chiaki in the bar.
>>25639102Maybe. But if Sayaka expresses surprise at the sniper rifle thing when we mention it later, there's going to be some trouble.
>>25639078>why the fuck would a bodyguard need a cover-up?>>25639092>not if the bodyguard's feelings are hurt because of thegeneral public.The existence of Magical Girls is kept from the public and QB and the other Incubators use their media blackout teams to make sure that their existence is only known to potential clients and not the general public.They don't want the secret getting out, for their reasons, and we're have to go along with it.
>>25639107Given she is now assembling a sniper rifle, I doubt that somewhat.
>>25639108I'm alpharius and so's my wife!
>>25639091>but how is she going to excuse the teenage girl always hanging around her, that goes everywhere she goesBy using the same excuse she had to use when we gave the finger to her retarded plan? By telling Chiaki is an assistant just like Deepthroat is?
>>25639098I'm not contesting the "failed to inform us" parts.I'm just saying that there ARE reasons or possible explanations for most things she did, even if many of them would come with a tinge of "Also, she's a bitch" or "Also, she failed to tell us this for no good reason.">>25639103>>25639108... You guys LIED to me! You bastards!
>>25639110Then why is it mentioned specifically that the public is not aware of the existence of Magical Girls and that blackouts on the media and PR teams are used to cover up their existence?
>>25639115I'm thinking that she's just basically Idol Joffrey, and is going to start firing wildly into the city below because she can.
>>25639103I thought you were Omegon?>>25639107Oh fuck off you missed the thread and it was decided against so tough shitIf you actually read the thread you would see the rational side of the argument was forcibly turning off the camera would be a much bigger sign that something was up than playing along and not being an idiotic cunt
>>25639115Or its part of her appeal.Omae no hearto, nerai utsu ze~
>>25639128The only reason she has done anything, from doing the voice shit with Iori right down to requesting our presence in the first place, was to fuck with us.
>>25639133Well, that's pretty plausible. But that in itself would make things pretty difficult for us given how crazy she'd be.And it doesn't mean that's the full extent of her madness. Oh no, it's psycho Ruri all the way down the iceberg.
This was the time to get mad, grab her by the shoulders and scream in her face asking what the shit she thinks she's pulling. Not sure how this will work out though, because my phone is being extra stupid this morning.
>>25639116>>25639131They hid the fact that they are MAGICAL girls, the fact that there are young girls doing mercenary work is no secret for those that care.
>>25639149For some reason, I don't want her to know she managed to make chiaki mad.
>>25639147That's an assumption right now. No matter how likely it is, we have no proof at present.
>>25639133Well this is going to be fun.If she starts aiming it at anything like she wants to shoot something, timestop, walk over, remove ammo, replace empty cartridge, walk back to our seat, take the exact position we started in, and unfreeze time.
>>25639155Agreed, we need to not let her know she has gotten to us
>>25639153You just said it yourself though: "For those who care". That isn't everyone in the world.
>>25639157>That's an assumption right now.>Ruri wanting to fuck with Chiaki>assumptionReally?
>>25639149No man, we can't do anything like that to Ruri-sama! We're contracted to do anything she wants! If she asks us to bend over and drop our panties so she can shove the whole thing inside, we've gotta do it, because of the contract!
>>25639166Other theories have been posted in this thread, can you prove them all wrong?
>>25638733>How was I?>GreenFifth element reference?
>>25639163>You just said it yourself though: "For those who care". That isn't everyone in the world.And how the fact will Chiaki break the "masquarade" by acting as a normal bodyguard for Ruri?
>>25639179Somebody else already noticed. >>25638919
>>25639173Do us a favor and put a trip on so we can ignore you more easily fuckhead
I think we're forgetting the name of the idol's first album, 'A Magical Girl's Only Wish'. There's a chance she's known about magical girls for quite some time, possibly before QB contacted her. She's either known for quite some time, is one herself or is damn close to someone who is one. It's a little too specific to be swept under the carpet.To get this popular, she's going to have to have been around for a while, no? Or do we have a time scale on that and I've missed it somewhere?Pin it up to shadowruns if you will, but it *is* suspicious as all fuck.
>>25639175What other theories? The ones that don't actually explain anything?>>25639181Because she might need to use MG powers and OH WAIT THERE'S A FUCKING LIVE WEBCAST GOING OUT TO POTENTIALLY MILLIONS OF VIEWERS.
>>25639189I think you need a sarcasm detector there, mate.
>>25639173Please stop.We don't need this again.
>>25639181In itself it does not. However, a malnourished teen girl dressed like a cosplayer who smokes and drinks way too much is a suspicious choice of body guard.
>>25639179>Fifth element reference?Yes, someone already caught it.>>25639175>Other theories have been posted in this thread, can you prove them all wrong?>implying I need toThe fact that Ruri wants to fuck with us isn't proving anything else wrong, in fact, it reinforces some theories.
>>25639194>Because she might need to use MG powers and OH WAIT THERE'S A FUCKING LIVE WEBCAST GOING OUT TO POTENTIALLY MILLIONS OF VIEWERS.Our big power is stopping time.Thats not exactly obvious if we're subtle about it.
>>25639193>Or do we have a time scale on that and I've missed it somewhere?I think she's been around for 2.5 to 3 years.That incident in Santa Destroy was 2 years ago, from what Sayaka was saying, and she was already fairly popular then.
>>25639195Oh no I know what the point was but it is shitting me to see me faggot who refuses to stop crying because his choice didn't get taken so he has to act like a retard and shit up the thread
>>25639202Our shield is not what it once was. It takes a lot of very visible effort to use now, and it makes a lot of noise in complaint.
>>25639199>Implying Chiaki smokes anymore>Implying Chiaki drinks anything but water nowLet me say this again. The only thing that the Incubators care about is MAGIC. As long as she doesn't transform or pull out 5 migs out of hammerspace they don't give a shit.
In any case, Ruri is a terrible person. Whether she is suspicious or mundane, she is an absolute bitch. Sayaka can attest to that.
>>25639216>Implying Chiaki didn't knock off half a pack just before coming in here because she was pissed.
>>25639216>Implying Chiaki smokes anymoreShe smoked four cigarettes out in the hall before we entered the suite!>Implying Chiaki drinks anything but water nowOur house warming party? Champaigne? Remember?
>All those people acting like Ruri did good by trying to make Chiaki play the roll of the fanYou guys are a bunch of idiots, did you already remember that when Chiaki was on bodyguard duty for Iori she only needed to discuse herself as a maid ONCE.
>>25639232>>25639220>Champaigne>not water with liquor for babiesAlso those cigarettes were because she needed to calm down, they are allowed.
>>25639217Actually she hasn't been a bitch outright, she hasn't done anything beyond being disturbingly prepared for us to arrive and us having bad timing to arrive when we didIf we hadn't been a bitch about the competition this wouldn't actually have turned out anything like thisSayaka was speaking literally when she said don't meet your heroes is a good piece of adviceDecu just has played us like a goddamned piano from the start of this and we are dancing along beautifully
>>25639244So Chiaki doesn't smoke any more except for the times she does which don't count?
Um...The thing about "non-obvious bodyguard", um... it was to hide the fact that there was a bodyguard...Sigh -- look, I know she'll have some obvious bodyguards and security too.But what I was saying was that the "contest winner" or "Murder Mayumi cosplayer" would be let mean that she could have a bodyguard close to her that **people would not REALIZE is a bodyguard**.As in, somebody tries to get to her, and then BAM! the cosplayer hits 'em when they're not expecting it.I didn't mean anything about a "Do people know about Magical Girl bodyguards or not" sort of thing... I just meant it in the much more straightforward, simple, and CONVENTIONAL meaning of "a convenient and plausible explanation for why a new girl is suddenly hanging around Ruri 24/7.">>25639236Right, but I believe Iori was isolated(ish) in a hotel room -- whereas Ruri has a webcam on her 24/7 for a while. So we'd have attention on us much like when we brought Chiaki to that gathering/party/meeting.
>>25639244Allowed has nothing to do with it, you made a blanket statement that was blatantly wrong.
>>25639249>So Chiaki doesn't smoke any more except for the times she does which don't count?Yes.
>>25639216>Pull out 5 MiGsYeah about those. We need to test if our shield can hold people and if it can, get some pilots for the MiGs. Or an AI. Have Misaka develop an AI for jet fighters.>Then 5 MiGs appeared out of thin air and strafed the shit out of every living thing in the area.
>>25639248The rifle and the deagle business strike me as very suspicious. Of course, it could just be a rich Idol with far too many connections and far too much money paying the wrong types of people off for info.
>>25639248Eh... She is going to punish Deepthroat by putting her in the Box.
>>25639257>whereas Ruri has a webcam on her 24/7 for a whileAnother reason for cutting that shit down.
>>25639257>still pushing the 'Ruri had a good idea' angleTHEN WHY DIDN'T SHE TELL US BEFOREHAND?
>>25639248>Sayaka was speaking literally when she said don't meet your heroes is a good piece of advice>Implying anyone having Chiaki as their hero doesn't deserve to have their hopes and dreams come crashing down around them as they begin their ride on the Murderface Experience>>25639257>The thing about "non-obvious bodyguard", um... it was to hide the fact that there was a bodyguard...That was not part of the agreement.>But what I was saying was that the "contest winner" or "Murder Mayumi cosplayer" would be let mean that she could have a bodyguard close to her that **people would not REALIZE is a bodyguard**.If she wanted a subtle bodyguard she would have 1. Mentioned it in the request and 2. Not asked for goddamn Murderface.
>>25639265MIGs are inefficient.We should see if we can stuff AI piloted UAVs inside.Much more usable if say we're indoors.
>>25639266I still say the butter was just kind of handgun-shaped, partly-melted, and Chiaki interpreted as a deagle. For the same reasons she suspected a champagne cork might be a gunshot. She's a somewhat unreliable narrator.
>>25639265HomuHomu could use cars and ships using some sort of telekinesis in the anime. Dunno if Chiaki can do anything like that or if Decu allowes it.
>>25639274>We should see if we can stuff AI piloted UAVs inside.YES. WE MUST EXPLORE THE GUNSPACE.
>>25639273The only agreement was for an escort.Whether it was a undercover assignment or standard one was omitted.
>>25639268Which we haven't actually heard anything about beyond it being something spaghetti is scared ofIt is the one thing she has done that is actually legitimately questionable and WE caused itWe should actually explain that too
>>25639285Can we hide ourselves inside the Gunspace?
>>25639279I am in agreement. Let us take subjective matters with a grain of salt.
>>25639258>>25639249>All them non-smokers in this threadIt's a smoking thing, you won't understant if you don't smoke.
>>25639285Chiaki needs a Bolt Pistol. Seriously.>>25639281Probably not, the Shield's screwed up hard. We can't even Time-Stop without Pinky dropping by.>>25639279>>25639295Agreed. Hold the Shadowruns for when it counts.
[x] Because the pancakes are most likely drugged judging by how you let no one else or you yourself eat any of the food. Also, you are starting to seem a bit like a sociopath. Keep it up and we'll see how well you can do a concert with only one foot. Or worse.
>>25639292Since the shield is attached to our arm I somehow doubt it.I mean, we could ask Sayaka to cut our arm off so we can test it but I think that might be going a bit far.>>25639296Enjoy your lung cancer.
>>25639296Oh I understand. You don't have the stones to quit properly so you tell yourself it doesn't count. Personaly I don't give a shit if another person smokes, but lieing to yourself doesn't change anything.
>>25639296No my friend.It is self-delusion and deception.Like smoking when you're trying to quit. The only one you're lying to is yourself. I would know.
>>25639291I sort of get the feeling that Spaghetti is not very hard to scare. The box could be something fairly innocuous that Ruri doesn't even think is a punishment that Spaghetti associates with her inferiority complex. She does something she thinks was dumb or wrong, panics, Ruri has her do something else unrelated that she isn't comfortable with, and she perceives it as a punishment.Or it's just a big cardboard box and she puts Spaghetti in it and bangs on it while making ghost noises. Something like that.
>>25639300We already have one. We even let Midori borrow it.
>>25639301Almost an hour late, bro.Speaking of hours, NYAN NYAN
>>25638764>the customized sniper rifle she's now carefully assembling on the bed is almost nearly as big as the Anzio that Misaka used for ventilating Kirika.>butter desert eagleSomehow, I think it's stopped being a coincidence. I'd say it lends credence to the "Ruri got replaced by a meguca" theory if she's in the know about how Kirika died.
>>25639300The shield dispensed a bolt pistol in siberia.I wonder what happened to it.
>>25639302>enjoy your lung cancerAhahaha look at this smug motherfucker
>>25639302>ask Sayaka to cut our arm off so we can test itAnd then Sayaka throws our shield in the ocean and we're trapped in shield space forever.
>>25639317It either returned to the shield or Chiaki gave it to Misaka.
>>25639265Or we could just pull a "WRYYYYYYYYY!!" maneuver with them and drop them on top of somebody like it's a steamroller.>>25639271Meh.>>25639273>If she wanted a subtle bodyguard she would have 1. Mentioned it in the request and 2. Not asked for goddamn Murderface.Well, we'd successfully kept Iori safe, and Iori might've been complimenting Chiaki lots.
>>25639308Or, you know, the one in Matilda.The cupboard with glass bits, nails and all that sticking out from all the sides so you had to stand ram rod straight or get cut.Childhood nightmares...
>>25639308Both of these options are pretty hilarious so I kind of hope it's one of these.
>>25639271Ruri wants to avoid leaks.If nobody other than she and the Officio has the details, then the likelihood of a breach would be minimal.
>>25639308>Or it's just a big cardboard box and she puts Spaghetti in it and bangs on it while making ghost noises. Something like that.That would be hilarious.
>>25639330Or that, yes. I just think the ghost noises are funnier and less tragic. I don't want bad things to happen to Spaghetti. She's like our sweaty bastion of trembling, shoeless sanity in this crazy mixed-up idol world.
>Decu makes an Introduction: 6 Posts>People being retarded and arguing about shit: 149 posts omittedYou people are seriously retarded. Its pretty easy to follow this Quest.You know that I do when a choice pops up?You wanna know?Its easy, I ask myself:>WHAT WOULD CHIAKI DO?Its like you people don`t even know the basics about roleplaying.
>>25639315Or she has connections to the mob and other various sources. If there were mob guys who observed or got away from Sayaka, they could've known these things.In either case, these are very worrying.
>>25639308Okay this is now my next thing to yell at drawfags until it gets done
>>25639310>>25639317Must've slipped my mind, shall we ask Misaka to have it reverse-engineered? ''>>25639326Ninja'd
>>25639346Or she was the one who hired Midorin to rape Iori.
>>25639344Sure some of it's retarded, but there's merit to people sitting and discussing the situation while they wait for the next post.
>>25639348The main problem is ammunition. It was totally used up and so theres no examples left to copy.
>>25639344but mah shadowruns
>>25639334fuck that, its a pretty good guess that's she's not human. she's probably just taking the piss. because she's a giant douchebag. really if we don't get to slap her like joffrey at someone point I'm going to be disappoint. She is also obviously sadistic.
>>25639328>Well, we'd successfully kept Iori safe, and Iori might've been complimenting Chiaki lots.Our mission to protect her ended up as a total bloodbath.
>>25639347I'm still waiting for Sayaka and Pinky in full fangirl garb drawfags. You know you want to.
>>25639358But sadistics like to smack.It's only Ms that like getting smacked.
>>25639356It's Misaka, she could easily make some from scratch
>>25639354Also, what else are we supposed to do between decu posts if not discuss options?
>>25639356I'd say we start digging around the Gunspace for another one, then. Or, hopefully, have Misaka cook up some custom ones for us.>>25639368Ninja'd again
>>25639363Oh yeah there is that too but the box is added to the things to yell at them to doOr maybe commission Decu himself to do it
>>25639308Or it cold be 'The Box' in the original Deadpool sense - straight up portable torture room.
>>25639371Argue about faggot Alpharius.
>>25639367Yet another reason we must never, ever let Ruri find out who Green Green is.
>>25639344I don't even get why people care so much. Yes, Ruri is obviously either an incredibly annoying fan who wants to 'steal' us from Iori, or full enemy (probably both). No, we're not gonna bail on the mission completely until we've got something more solid. There, that's it. The camera discussion is literally the only legitimate one.
>>25639368>>25639372Well she got tiny Pete to work, so she already has some experience figuring out 40k tech.
>>25639334She didn't tell the Officio. If she had it would have been in the briefing.If she has a leak that is capable of intercepting a contract request to an Officio Assassinorum, then sending the contract in the first place will be enough to send up every red flag ever.All she would achieve by failing to inform us is jeopardising the mission.Now, if someone intercepted the contract and REMOVED that information, then I can understand. But that would raise a shitton of questions with QB and probably through the entire fucking system for a loop.>>25639362Iori survived. Mission successful.She was even in one single, structurally sound piece! Bonus points!
>>25639281That was just plot-powered timestop, she stole the truck and drove it up that bridge and then resumed time.
>>25639363"You should see the other guy!" could be seen as a BONUS...Also -- that bloodbath/clusterfuck that got nearly everyone else killed? We got OUR principal out of that safe and sound!
>25638800 >>25638826 >>25638829 >>25638824You give the tantalizing tower of pancakes sitting right in front of you, before pushing the plate to the side a bit. Honestly, with all that's happened lately, you're not feeling all that hungry. Thirsty, maybe, but looking at the spread, there's no iced water to drink, only orange juice. And you don't do orange juice."Ice...water?" Ruri blinks as she looks up at you, her hands momentarily pausing in their fluid assembly of a weapon that could probably kill God if she could draw a bead on him with it. "Not whisky? Well, er...I suppose I could get Noriko to get you some--"No. No, she doesn't need to go to the trouble. But speaking of Deepthroat, though--"Deepthroat? Who's..." Ruri's brow furrows momentarily, before smoothening out as she smiles. "Ahaha~! Oh, I almost forgot about her codename. Yes, what about her?"...Cute. Anyway. You wanted to make clear that it wasn't her fault that Ruri's little stunt with the contest didn't work out the way she planned it to. The snag was your idea - and she doesn't need to go into any box or whatever. Jesus, give the kid a break. And maybe some deodorant. And a long shower."Oh, is that so?" The idol's smile is a rather cheeky one as she continues to work on the intimidating rifle, the metal parts clacking and snapping, a staccato cacophony as they are fitted together by perfectly-manicured fingers. "Well, I kind of knew you wouldn't go along with it. Chiaki Matsuda - or rather, Murderface-san - doesn't bow down to fate all too easily. You'd have viewed it as an insult, probably, a spoiled brat of a boss that likes to throw her weight around simply because she's got enough money and clout to." Her smile turns into a mischievous grin. "Am I right, or am I right?"[1/2]
>>25639391She was riding on the roof.Also, she was driving up the arch, not on the road.
>>25639395Fuck. She's got your number, there. Fine, you admit it. But why this? Is she trying to seduce you, piss you off, or both? Last you heard, you're being hired as security detail. What's with all...this? And what's with the rifle?It's here that she looks...well, offended. "Really? Chiaki-chan, I'm the top-selling idol in Japan - and in the world. I've been on the cover of Rolling Stones five times. All my records have gone multiple platinum. You don't --" Ruri stops here, her cute pouty frown turning into another smile. "...you have no idea whatsoever why I hired you, do you?"No. No, you don't."Hee. Well, I suppose I'm not that famous yet, seeing as the legendary Murderface hasn't even heard of me." It's then that she clears her throat, and starts singing.. . .You're not at all into idol music. You think the bulk of it is designed to be as shrill and annoyingly-squeaky as possible, in order to reach some sort of hidden frequency that resonates with the part of the human brain that likes horrible music sung by scantily-clad, barely-legal girls. You're not a fan, is what you're trying to get at, here.But Ruri, after singing only a few bars of a song you've never heard of, had...well, taken you. From an uppity idol bitch that desperately needed a punch in the gut and another in the kidneys, she'd transformed into a young woman who absolutely had no idea what she was getting into, and yet just wanted for the boy she liked to like her back. A girl that had no idea she'd be fighting horrible monsters until the day she died - and only wanted to feel the warmth of a hug before she did.Her impromptu recital ends after a slow, mournful note, and she opens her eyes, a blush blossoming on her cheeks.[2/3]
I really think we should put the fear of god into her. Or more importantly, the fear of us. we're the warmaster goddamn it, we don't have to take this anymore. Worst case scenario we actually can just shoot the camera, then take our two friends with us and leave. and make fart noises with our mouth the entire time as we walk out.
>>25639371I've been watching QI and working on DnD maps myself.
>>25639310This picture has me thinking of Midori in spats... we need to run into her finishing her workout at the office's gym.
>>25639354Oh, I see, autosage is a merit now.
>>25639405"I sing about Magical Girls, Chiaki-chan. Yes, yes, I know the world's not supposed to know about you yet." The idol smiles. "Don't worry, I'm not trying to expose you or anything - I doubt I'd be taken seriously, anyway, what with the current market inundated with magical girl anime and spinoffs. I'd probably be accused of viral marketing another project."...Well, alright, but that doesn't explain--Ruri looks at you pointedly, before shaking her head. "Seriously? No, you're kidding, right? ...Oh, fine. Besides how awesome the PR of having a dead-to-rights Murder Mayumi cosplayer in my webcast, Chiaki-chan, I also wanted to know more about the most notorious Magical Girl in the world, more notorious than Valnikov Kharn ever was."You blink at her in silence, and she takes that a sign to continue. "The contest? I wanted to see how you'd react. I wanted to get under your skin, see what made you tick. I want to write a song about you, about the Magical Girl who isn't afraid to wade into blood and get her stockings and costume caked with gore. I want to write a song about the Magical Girl who fights like she's got nothing to lose, yet walks as if she's got the entire world on her shoulders."...What about the gun, then?"What, this?" She looks down at the rifle on her lap. It's almost fully assembled, save for the magazine. You narrow your eyes at it, and Ruri catches your gaze. She giggles, and shows you that it's empty. "calm down. I never bring ammunition to a concert. And this is a family heirloom - I take it with me and clean it to calm myself down. It's also my good luck charm, see?" She fingers the ribbon tied around the scope.Huh. Well.How do you react?Ask about Iori. What's she doing here?Ask about her new 'project'.Ask about the 'good time' clause in your contract with her.Other.

>>25639437Er, Iori might have auditioned for the MMxMM job herself. Hence, Iori and Ruri end up as the voice-actresses for the two lead girls, and so they decide to do this PR thing.>>25639445The webcast wasn't mentioned because she wanted to test us, like she said.
>>25639415[x]Ask about Iori. What's she doing here?She does know what happened the last time she and Murderface were in this exact apartment, yes?[x]Also, she's better off not knowing you. Does she even understand the significance of the Golden DEagle?
>>25639437>Fuck, thats almost legit... goddamn. Shadowruns inverted on their heads.Shadowruns almost inverted on their heads.She knows way too much about magical girls to be healthy for someone outside the...industry.And there's still a massive chance that she's either out for revenge because we fucked over her plans to rape Iori, or she's a participant in Faust's Highlander: Midas Edition.

Er, guys... The Iori thing is because Iori ALSO has a voice-acting part for MMxMM.And the "good time" clause is because... um, well,,, she wanted to meet us and hoped to have fun. She did just say this.. Why are we asking again?
As for wanting to know about her knowledge in all things mahou shoujo: she mentioned the rifle being a family heirloom. Maybe her relative contracted and introduced her to the world? That rifle would then belong to her.She might have even started singing to honour the sacrifice of this aforementioned relative, hence the title of her first album.
>>25639481It would still be nice to find out the specifics. I mean do the Incubators walk up to them and hand over a business card or what?
>>25639481Okay so.Here's the big question.-What contracts has she been taking out to learn so much-
>>25639415Adding[x] Where did you find out about magical girls?It's true that people with money and power know about them, but it can't hurt to confirm.
>>25639464This, with a healthy dose of [X] "So, who are you, anyway?"
>>25639484Just to be sure.>>25639488Kyuubey did that with Yuma, methinks.
>>25639415>From an uppity idol bitch that desperately needed a punch in the gut and another in the kidneys, she'd transformed into a young woman who absolutely had no idea what she was getting into, and yet just wanted for the boy she liked to like her back. A girl that had no idea she'd be fighting horrible monsters until the day she died - and only wanted to feel the warmth of a hug before she did.Sound familiar, I suppose this story has repeated itself several times over. Because we dethroned GodokaAnyway>[x]Ask about her new 'project'."What did you mean by getting the idols to sing with once voice?"
>>25639484I think with the Iori thing, is why this hotel and suite specifically, why bring Iori here.As for the "good time" clause, I want to know if she expected more than just a fun date.
>>25639488I suspect word of mouth.Fellows let their allies know of such a service.Or those who have suffered such an attack begin investigations into such organisations. Then again, its possible for Magical Girl Solicitation. Appear on doorsteps of powerful folks and non-lethally disabling all the hired security can make a powerful demonstration.>>25639489Very good question. We'll need to ask her that. Since apparently, shes been doing it for her entire career. Her first song was even about magical girls already.
>>25639415[x] Sigh Heavily[x] "'The most notorious Magical Girl in the world'? Are you serious or are you just an idiot? I´m pretty sure there are better qualified Magical Girls for that.I´m not famous and quite frankly I don`t even want to be famous so yo ubetter forget about writinga song about me right from the get-go, its bad enough that there is a Manga about me already.If you have any usable brainmatter left between those twintails of yours after screeching for years you better forget everything about Magical Girls and just stick to the rich idol-schtick.".
>>25639526But we are famous. That's why Midori was already our raving fangirl when we first met her.
>>25639476It was glowing goddamn purple. And it flew off a goddamn bridge in defiance of gravity.
>>25639533>>25639526Chiaki might be famous to Japan due to Green Green, but they are bigger fish in other countries as evidenced by the write ups that expand the setting.
>>25639481Her FIRST ALBUM was about Magical Girls.How the hell did she know about them BEFORE she was rich and famous?
>>25639526You're wrong on all of that.Murderface IS one of the most notorious Magical Girls in the industry, especially with the departure of Kharn. And her entire career is built on Magical Girls; she doesn't want to become one, and she already knows enough about them to make her into the world's most popular idol, she only wants to learn about Chiaki Matsuda because of the reputation.
>>25639490[x] thisShe knows a fucking lot about magical girls. I'm pretty sure Iori didn't know about Kharn, so this is more than just her talking with Iori. Something happened two years ago that we should know about.Lets turn this into a give and take. We will entertain her questions, if she answers a few of our own.
>>25639553>How the hell did she know about them BEFORE she was rich and famous?Good point.
>>25639552Pretty sure Wendy mentioned there being an english translation for a start.
>>25639552I assumed this was more because other writers like to make mary sues and Decu's too nice to stop them.
>>25639553Her friend was contracted?
>>25639552There's an English translation of the manga, and it's gone global.
>>25639553How did Homura find out about magic girls before she became one? She may have simply seen one in action, or been saved by one.
>>25639573Unless Decu has Murderface kill them one day to remind the writers he is boss
>>25639578To be specific, Mami and Madoka.
>>25639533I fail to see why we would be THAT famous. I get it that we were well-known in our officio because we killed an awful lot of people in a short span as Girl A.But I fail to see how we should have an awful lot a fame beyond that. Especially because the general population doesn`t even know about Magical Girls. Kharn and Kirika, since they had a high killcount, Mami because of her unusual kindness for a Meguca, even some of the other Warmasters since they are batshit insane. But Chiaki? Not really. I don`t believe that killing 18 Eversors is such a big deal if Kharn probably killed and fucked way more than that. probably even at the same time.
>>25639588So, friends then.
>>25639573I don't think you know what "mary sue" means
>>25639415[X] All the above, and why did you neglect to mention the 24 hour broadcast? Explanation now before the camera gets a couple of new holes.
>>25639573>I assumed this was more because other writers like to make mary sues and Decu's too nice to stop them.>Saying that when Homura existsOi.
>>25639592>But I fail to see how we should have an awful lot a fame beyond that. We survived for a shitload of time as Kharn's 'assistant'. Without getting laid.
>>25639594My Madoka canon is shoddy at best, considering I've only read the manga for the series proper, but yeah. Moemura sees Mami and Madoka in action and eventually gets hauled into it.>>25639603Sadly. Chiaki'll never remember her stint as Girl A.
>>25639577If Midori's Chinese porno cartoons are actually being sold worldwide, why is she take up meguca-ing? She could probably be a full-time author if she wanted. Did her stuff become popular before or after she contracted?That reminds me, we should find out Midori's actual wish at some point. I know it's supposed to be personal, but she'd tell us if we asked.
>>25639573>People decide to write something about different characters>They're automatically Mary SuesYeah, nah. Well, aside from the one whose name is actually Mary Sue.
>>25639592We've killed many more than 18 Eversors, and for a time Murderface was a part of Kharn's entourage, meaning she came along when Kharn visited other Officios.Also, QB said that no one, no other Magical Girl, had the perfect Time Stop ability that Murderface had, making her very unique and valued. So that would be another reason why our fame would spread beyond just the Japanese Officio's.And also, being in the industry the lines of communication are very short and well-networked.
>>25639592Dude we had massive amounts of fame amongst the meguca because we not only slaughtered all those girls but Kharn showed us off like a shiny new toyAnd word spread very fast about our actions either from Kharn or from those she told
>>25639618My guess is after she became Meguca. There's not much one would know Murderface/ Girl A unless they're in the business.
>>25639618Her stuff only became popular well after she contracted, and only became profitable in like the last month or so when she got the animation deal. Until then, it was a hobby that wasn't making her money.
>>25639629Speaking of magic girls who use the character designs of touhou girls, what if another meguca turned up who had the same power as us? What if we fought?
>>25639632Reminds me, have we ever gotten around to finding ways to have our Shield fixed? I remember vaguely that it involved fixing whatever fuck-up Insane!Homura did in the first place.
>>25639618She would only really know about Murderface if she was a magical girl. So she probably started writing after she was contracted.
>>25639657We need all the golden weapons iirc
>>25639618>>25639642I think it was also mentioned that her parent(s) had incurred massive debts from various sources. >>25639661Decu mentioned that Midori started writing before she contracted. While Magical Girl Mercs are unknown to the public at large, I'm betting that Magical Girl anime/merchandise existed long before the Incubators arrived.
>>25639654Whoever draws first wins.But as I understand it we are the only one in this setting with such a high level of time control.
>>25639657>Reminds me, have we ever gotten around to finding ways to have our Shield fixed?Collecting the 20something golden weapons and putting them in our shield will fix it. It was confirmed by both Godoka/Faust AND prophet mode Misaka.
>>25639657We were told that in order to fix it, we must collect all of the Golden Weapons.QB said he couldn't fix it, and recommended that we minimize using it to avoid further damage.>>25639661According to Decu, she started it slightly before Contracting, and that the tone shifted after she Contracted.He mentioned this in the previous thread in the Q&A.
>>25639682It's a fetch-quest!That's the worst kind of quest.
>>25639654It would be a battle of who could abuse time the first
>>25639654Kirika actually had time-manipulation powers, too. Enough that she could counteract our damaged Time Stop.
>>25639654The Perfect and Elegant Maid would wreck our shit due to our shield being mostly fucked.She wouldn't even need Magical Girl powers to do it, either.
>>25639695>That's the worst kind of quest.Bitch please. Escort missions are by far the worst.
>>25639679I'm saying she only could have written about us after she knew specifically about us. I can't imagine too many people other than magical girls know about any one specific magical girl. She was an author before she was a magical girl? Sure. She knew about us though? I doubt it. Unless decu specifically said something.
>>25639695Nah, escort quests with badly programmed AI are the worst.
>>25639679But... Didn't the incubators arrive thousands of years ago, or does that only apply in canon?
>>25639705But...But we're on an escort mission. During our fetch quest!FUCK!
>>25639705Timed underwater escort mission GO!
>>25639710Yes. Maybe, ask Decu.
>>25639706Her parent's rammen shop was frequented by ourselves, Kharn and Malal I think.
>>25639671>>25639682>>25639686Damn. I really want perfect Time Stop, as hacked and boring the fights would be.>>25639710Canon. Me thinks. Kyuubey and co. went corporate this time.
>>25639712Oh dear god no!
>>25639705Play Last of Us. The entire game is an escort quest, and it's fucking awesome.MMO style go collect X number of Y, are the worst kind of quest.
>>25639728According to one of the writeups, they only initiated the Officio system a few years ago, not long before Murderface was discovered in Charlotte's barrier.ie Pinky did it.
>>25639629Fuck you, Marisu is a fantastic artist.
>>25639734At least your escort was useful there, as far as my limited knowledge goes. And yes, MMO farming is Hell.>>25639742I see. I should really read those write-ups more.
>>25639726Shit you're right, I forgot about that.
>>25639734Man I would suggest ICO just because it was the first to have an escort mission that didn't suck.
>>25639759And the first time Murderface went in, she was too distracted by her to work.D'awww
>>25639820Leading her to spill a hot dish on a rich client, who then sued them, causing their financial problems which Midori contracted to get them out of.Murderface is the direct cause of Midori selling her soul to the devil.
>>25639832>staff>no knivesSomething is lacking there..
>>25639844Murderface: Hurting the ones she loves even before she knows their names.
>>25639832Look at that eye. She's dead inside. Goddamnit Remi.>>25639848That probably isn't helping.
>>25639848Maybe the staff summons knives.
>>25639654like Fighting Daud in dishonored would be my guess
>>25639848Nyet. She just hides them well.>>25639856Just toss that into the pile which is Chiaki's Fuck-Ups.
>>25639860Too much late night fun time has left her brokenhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFnVnYkTWI8
>>25639864"And now we fight the duel that no two others could fight, against the ticking of the clock."Time stopped knife fight. That'd be awesome.
>>25639864I wonder if Pinky and The Outsider would get along.
>>25639876Sakuya's skirt isn't anywhere NEAR that long.
>>25639706>Unless decu specifically said something.suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25599634/Post number 25602617In response to whether Midori started MMxMM before she became a Magical Girl, and if the tone of the doujin changed after she Contracted.>Yes, it was before, and there was quite the tonal change.
>>25639441 >>25639445 >>25639447Fine. You'll...accept those answers for now. But before you get back into being her paid grunt in a Magical Girl costume, you want some answers, and she'll give them or else you walk."Haha~ Sure, sure, ask away! I'll do my best to answer all of Chiaki-chan's questions!"...Right. Well. About Iori--"Yes, I know it looks a certain way," Ruri cuts you off even before you've gotten a sentence in edgeways. "But we were looking for a Murder Mayumi VA, and Iori-chan seemed to be a perfect fit. We thought about getting Kikuchi Makoto-chan first, of course, but she turned us down." She pouts, here. "You have no idea how relieved I was when she sent in her audition tape! And she hit it right out of the park, too!"Alright. That's...you'll have to talk to Iori about that, later. What about this 'good time' thing that she specifically asked you for--"That's a se-cret~!" Wink. Stars and glitters coming out of fucking nowhere. Victory sign....Really?"Oh, don't look like I'm going to drug you and rape you, or something," Ruri pouts again, and you could see how she could reduce any man - and woman - to putty with that pout. "Good time! A fun time! I want to get to know you better, Chiaki-chan, not ruin my career by getting involved with a Magical Girl!"[1/2]
>>25639921>"That's a se-cret~!" Wink. Stars and glitters coming out of fucking nowhere. Victory sign.Bitch just Mikuru/Xellos'd us.
>>25639921>she sent in her audition tapeIORI. WORDS. NOW.
>>25639921>Stars and glitters coming out of fucking nowhereWhere and how
>>25639921If that's the case, then why did she tell Iori all that stuff--It's here that her upbeat pace and tone suddenly gets taken down a notch, and Ruri looks back at the door. "I...well, consider it a small favor in advance, from me to you, Chiaki-chan." It's here that she stands up from the bed, the rifle in hand - and it's with a reverent air that she places the long, beastly weapon on a rack, planted up against one of the walls of the suite. Her fingers tracing the engraved writing on the rifle. "I know, I know, I look like a massive superbitch and whatever I do, that's not going to change. But Iori-chan...she was really into you, Chiaki-chan. Almost unhealthily so. I...I guess I wanted to help her dial it back a bit." She turns back towards you. "So I did it the only way I knew how."By...being a massive superbitch?"Ding ding ding! Tell the audience what we've got for Chiaki-chan, Johnny!" Ruri does a little hop and skip, clapping her hands, her long twintails bobbing up and down. "You got it in one! And no, I don't mind if she hated me in the bargain, as long as she realizes how bad an idea it is to fall in love with a Magical Girl." It's here that her smile fades, somewhat. "It's the worst thing an idol can do, and one she may not live long enough to regret."Oh. Um. Well. An awkward silence falls over the room, once more.This Ruri person. She's...well, you're still suspicious, but she's turning out rather alright. She's at least convinced you halfway that shooting her in the face may not be a good idea.You clear your throat, and you think about a change in subject.How...how did she know about Magical Girls in the first place?[2/3]
>>25639947"By falling in love with one." Ruri replies in a distant whisper, turning her back once more to you, as she looks back at the rifle. . . .Yeah, okay. You're bad at this conversation thing.How do you react? Ask a few more questions. (Write-in)That's...enough. You don't need to dig deeper. Just...tell her not to pull shit like this again.

>>25639947Well, at a glance, it seems like Ruri is actually a pretty okay person.But I'm pretty sure we're already too far in to escape alive, so BRING ON THE OTHER SHOE.

>>25640147>there is no story without conflict.That doesn't mean that we should do obviously stupid stuff when there's already plot going on. Fuck, that's the kind of retarded rationalization that leads to bringing QB into Time Stop to meet Pinky, or telling Ribbon-Homu to get fucked.
>>25640149We will cross that bridge when we get to it. I was going to say something about our singing voice probably doesn't exist anymore, but then I remembered lip-syncing.I get the feeling shit is going to hit the fan before then anyway.
>>25640160>Putting the hat on is not mutually exclusive with anything else.I guess that's true.But I, like some others, do not WANT to put on the hat. Just... no.
Wait, guys, we're under her effect. She was a mysterious bitch, and then she suddenly did a 180 and looped around to super kind, friendly and agreeable Ruri here: >>25639405Right after she finished singing.WE ARE NOT SEEING WHAT WE THINK WE ARE SEEING. This is a trap. We're in some kind of mental episode where she's saying *EXACTLY* what we want to hear. It's all too perfect. It's all too smooth. Too many perfectly logical explanations that explain everything away, when you and I both know that the world doesn't ever work that way. Assume that everything we are hearing is a lie, and that nothing we are seeing is as it seems. It's the only way to make it out alive.
>>25640160No, it's not mutually exclusive.But that doesn't mean it's a good idea.It's still a stupid idea.
>>25640119THEN CRANK IT UP TO 101
>>25640188Possibly. But how can we stop being mind controlled?
>>25640188>>25640205If indeed that is correct, should we Timestop? It's how we got out of Midori's illusion the last time.
>>25640188If that's the case, then we need to break out of the illusion using the only anti-Callidus technique we know, that we were told about after the debacle with the otaku rapists and Midori's illusion.
>>25640205Well, last time we got a hand from a certain pink-haired eldritch horror...
>>25640188>>25640205I guess we'll just have to go along for the ride for now and look out for opportunities.
>>25640205we're linked to midori right? could we pulse her and have her check our end remotely?
we should stick soul gems in whiskey pancakes
>>25640188>WE ARE NOT SEEING WHAT WE THINK WE ARE SEEING. This is a trap. We're in some kind of mental episode where she's saying *EXACTLY* what we want to hear. It's all too perfect. It's all too smooth. Too many perfectly logical explanations that explain everything away, when you and I both know that the world doesn't ever work that way.Unless this is *literally* an illusion and we're slumped over in dreamidorillusion-land there's nothing else we can do about it. Job carries on while we stay on a razor's edge. Unless you want to shoot the next five people we see in the face then jump out the window and fly away in a MIG.
>>25640209>It's how we got out of Midori's illusion the last timeNo, Pinky was the one who got us out of it.We were still under the illusion while in Time Stop.
>>25640210Wait, we were taught a technique? Or do you just mean running to Pinky for help?
>>25640188If she's so perfect, why did Sayaka start to hate her after 10 minutes? Wouldn't she have been able to keep the masquerade going?
Rolled 14>>25640210I forget what that is.
>>25640217We can pulse?Isn't that a culexus-and-kyouko-exclusive trick?
>>25640205I think the effect is probably limited to audio only. The answer is to shoot the legs off everybody in the immediate vicinity, then move on to shooting the legs off everybody in the building.
>>25640188This is actually quite likely. Decu can we do our mental defense thing before whatever choice wins?
>>25639956[X] what is this box Noriko is so afraid of[X] hahaha time fr Hats!
>>25640235More like an outside chance we might be able to have an exclusive link to Midori due to the soul gem connection.
>>25640231>Sayaka is the one that saves us, because Ruri overlooks her.We'll never live that down.
>>25640235our soul gems are linked, there ought to be some sort of communication suite
>>25640231Maybe Sayaka wanted to hate her, deep down?Or maybe Ruri wanted Sayaka to hate her so that she would go away?
>>25640188You've never met someone in real life who is super manipulative and knows exactly what to say to get under your skin and on your good side at the same time have you?
>>25640231Maybe she did keep the masquerade goingThat's why Sayaka didn't like her
>>25640209Everything was happening in our minds there, and dying was the quickest way out.I don't think mind control works the same way, our perception of what's happening is different, that's all. If we tried to kill ourself to get out, we'd have to wait for coobs to fix us (assuming nothing happens to our Soul Gem)
>>25640239Seconding this shit.>>25640229That's what I meant, apologies for the lack of clarification. We are going to sic the Eldritch Horror lounging around in our Timestop on a manipulative bitch.>>25640258What else can we do? It's not like Chiaki's strong point is mind-games.
>>25640255This is a good point. She is an idol, charisma is her primary stat. There may not necessarily be any actual magic involved, just phenomenal charm and manipulation skills.
>>25640255But she's not doing that. Her personality took a 180 after we listened to her sing. What we're hearing isn't what she's saying.
>>25640230>>25640232>>25640241We can use magic to detect the usage of magic. But it's not a sure thing.
Hmm. If it's illusion magic, then we hear what we WANT to hear.So what if we use the Hat, which has even stronger desire powers?
>>25640275Well that's probably bloody useless seeing as we're already under the effects.Let's just think at Midori real hard and see if that does something.
>>25640235When QB rewrote Midori's Contract, he linked her Soul Gem to ours, allowing us to pulse to Midori and having a killswitch on her.Though after the procedure in Siberia and Midori having her Soul Gem reconstructed with Mirai's, we haven't checked to see if the pulsing still works.
>>25640250>Maybe Sayaka wanted to hate her, deep down?... That makes no sense! Especially if its a charisma effect that is supposed to make somebody like her!>Or maybe Ruri wanted Sayaka to hate her so that she would go away?That's ridiculous -- Sayaka is here on a JOB, she's not going to go away just because she dislikes her.>>25640256>Maybe she did keep the masquerade going>That's why Sayaka didn't like herI meant that if she kept the masquerade up, then she would have successfully charmed Sayaka.>>25640267>But she's not doing that. Her personality took a 180 after we listened to her sing. What we're hearing isn't what she's saying.Or maybe she's adept at reading people and talking, and so she changed her strategy.Guys. We can check for magic or whatever, okay. But we should not just immediately assume we're under a spell or whatever.>>25640289>Hmm. If it's illusion magic, then we hear what we WANT to hear.>So what if we use the Hat, which has even stronger desire powers?... I think you just want to put on the hat, and are coming up with any excuse to argue for it.
>>25640289No, we are not using the Hat.
>>25640303Operating under the assumption that what we are seeing and hearing is false and being wrong is much better than operating under the assumption that things are perfectly fine and being wrong.Wear the paranoia like an armour.
>>25640303>excuseNo, not really. I'm not sure if it's a good plan, but Slaanesh vs illusion magic should mean we'd come out on the winning end.That said, it's only a last resort action if it turns out our Shadowruns are true.
>>25640289...Stop that, you're nearly beginning to almost sort of make sense.
Alright, sorry for the late start, but I have to hit pause for now. Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always appreciated. Thread to continue tomorrow, and I promise it'll be longer than this one!Questions answered before I go to sleep!
We've had plenty of warning that she's a Calidus and you guys only think to use OUR ONLY COUNTERMEASURE after voting has already ended AFTER we were probably placed under the effects.Absolutely brilliant.
>>25640335Also, thread to begin with the most voted option, just like last time.
>>25640303I'm advocating for the Magic detection thingy, anything else that sounds rash is a last-resort.>>25640323Exactly. Hope for the best but expect the worst.>>25640289Nope. Nein. Nyet. Not even once.
>>25640335Is it too late?
>>25640323I don't disagree with this - we should definitely be on our toes. But I also think it's hilarious how 'Everything has a logical explanation' immediately became 'IT MUST BE AN ILLUSION'.
>>25640323That's pretty much what the majority still thinks. Even if it's not an illusion, we can't trust her.
>>25640337>you guysSo why didn't you mention it earlier anon?
>>25640335Decu, how tightly do the Incubators control information about Magical Girls and the Officio's?Do they suppress the very existence of their organizations as well as their Magical nature?Is being seen on the net, even as a mundane bodyguard, against their wishes?
>>25640335What are our chances of successfully finishing this mission without bloodshed?
>>25640335Is there any chance Chiaki can have Misaka make a new Bolt Pistol for herself? We need Moar Dakka.
>>25640335Good thread Decu, I was surprised at Rumi's stated motivations - I though they'd turn out much more nefarious. Looking forward to the thread tomorrow.
>>25640353Because I didn't fucking know about it?
>>25640335When did the Incubators arrive? Is it different from the thousands of years ago in canon? How long did they stay before they set up the Officios?
>>25640364>I though they'd turn out much more nefarious.SHE'S IN YOUR HEAD YOU FOOL
>>25640303The masquerade being kept is what I meantSayaka expects some image of a girl she has when what she gets is this front of a bitchy manipulative idol who plays nice for the crowdRuri pushed her away by playing the roleAnd Ruri doesn't know who Sayaka actually is yet either
>>25640365So you blame us for our ignorance while admitting your own ignorance and using it as a shield?
>>25640356Didn't our massacre of the nerds get livestreamed across the internet?
>>25639956[x]So is the 24 hour webcamming another attempt to fuck with me? And no matter the reason, what can I do to convince you that filming me nonstop is a terrible fucking idea?
>>25640353Someone mentioned it in the last thread, I seem to have overlooked it's existence entirely until that guy mentioned it. I'm guessing most people were just like me or forgot about it.But yeh, now that I know it's there I think we should use it.
>>25640383You knew, yet you did nothing. That is not ignorance, it is foolishness.
>>25640346GuyDudeBuddyFriendNothing ever smooths itself out THAT cleanly. Things don't just get explained away and break down all the barriers between "Mysterious bitch playing the long game" and "superfriend".It doesn't happen. It can't happen. Ergo, it didn't happen, and this is a trick.
>>25640386No, that was a recording. The thugs intended to sell the video on paysites. Can't expect to sell what's already out there for free.
>>25640386No, it was just video taped. Even if it was recorded all they would see is someone shooting a few other people. Nothing particularly magical about that.
>>25640388Are you the same guy who came in last thread after chikuwa time trying to vote?
>>25640065>Your face when it turns out this all was just more fucking with us.
>>25640335thanks for running.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questarchive is up, have a good day gentlemen.
>>25640335Decu pls. I'm addicted, you can't cut me off like this after only 3 hours. Now where will I get my fix? Before you know it I'll be sucking dick for a paragraph of poorly written MGNQ-fanfic.
>>25640335How many more Shadowruns must be sacrificed in your name, Decu? Are you not pleased? Are you not entertained?
>>25640411I'm not arguing against that possibility (hell, I would say it's likely), but it's still funny to me.
>>25640436Much obliged, good Sir Anon.
>>25640228>Unless you want to shoot the next five people we see in the face then jump out the window and fly away in a MIG.I kind of want us to do this as an option at some point. The context doesn't matter, it'd just be cool.
>>25640455Deculture is fuelled by paranoia, just like SM is fuelled by player stupidity and Papa-N was fuelled by Hue.
>>25640356The Incubators control most of the media, and they've made Magical Girls as something of a media sensation. People know about magical girls and think they're cool, but at the same time don't really believe that they could exist. Some officios have legitimate business fronts, others have gone underground entirely.Nope! Kyuubey would probably say it's good PR.>>25640359Quite high, actually!>>25640360It's possible! >>25640369It's the same as what's established in PMMM canon, but the Officios is sort of a recent idea. Probably sixty, fifty years back.
>>25640296Let's try thinking about her really hard and then think "MIDORI. THIS IS GOD. YOU WILL STOP WRITING MURDER MAYUMI BOOKS RIGHT NOW."
>>25640298I'm not sure it was specified as pulsing, so much as "Being able to keep tabs on her by seeing through her eyes and controlling her".I almost forgot the latter part, that could make for some badass practical jokes.
>>25640506You fool! We should get her to split the royalties with us instead.
>>25640498>Nope! Kyuubey would probably say it's good PR.So...if we told QB about the 24-hour live webstream, he'd tell us to get out there and make sure our face gets plastered all over the net?And when we tell him about getting on stage, he'd demand to know why we're not trying to milk this for all it's worth while buying up stock in the media company that bought the rights to MMxMM?
>>25640498Any hints as to those Green Green write ups you mentioned?Are you looking forward to "deepthroat"'s anime later this year?
>>25640498Sorry, correction about the last thing. Officios came into proper formalization around seven years prior to MGNQ. Misread my notes, a bit sleepy, hahaha!
>>25640485Decu laughs at us, dancing like puppets on a string
>>25640498>>25640536Yes. GreenGreen would be nice, thanks.And as a Parthian shot, when is the Diary app going to be available again? We need more hints!
>>25640498You missed mine at >>25640344.
>>25640539>Seven years priorIs Chiaki in her early twenties or something now?
>>25640425No, and now I'm feeling stupid because I laughed at that guy.
>>25640539So seriously, what's with the box?You're just going to say 'Haha!' and not answer, though. I'm watching you.
>>25640553According to Pinky we're over a century old.
>>25640323>Operating under the assumption that what we are seeing and hearing is false and being wrong is much better than operating under the assumption that things are perfectly fine and being wrong.Not necessarily. Not if you do something fucked up to get out of what you assume is an illusion... only to find out you've murdered people or jeopardized the mission.This isn't paranoia armor, it's paranoia shackles or handicapping.Do that pulse to check for magical stuff, that's fine.If we actually act as if we truly, honestly, are in a perfect illusion? Well... Do you remember how we got out of the LAST such illusion? Pinky had us put our gun to our head and fire it.
>>25640533It's possible, hahaha!>>25640536What hints? D: It'll be written in Midori's POV, more or less, about her past and thoughts about the events that's happened so far.And yes, I even preordered the Nendoroid Petite, haha! Even though it's coming out next year.
>>25640498HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAThat argument for shutting down the web stream still sound like a good plan guys? Still wanna try and fuck things up because "WE ARE WARMASTER!"?
>>25640335So on a scale from "Angry wolverine" to "Giga Hitler", how evil is Ruri, really?
I get the feeling that we are going to lose our memory again a few times before we finish collecting every golden weapon.I'm just waiting for that quest where we wake up in our new apartment after some random assignment with. "You are a magical girl, you don't remember your name or anything that has happened in the last 6 months."Bonus points if it happens in the middle of an arc.
>>25640437Would you send money through paypal? Maybe we can come to an arrangement.
>>25640567So will you put the Nendoroid in a box?
>>25640550Make that parting shot, wrong term.
>>25640560I meant physical-appearance-wise.Actual age doesn't have much meaning to undead immortals, after all.
>>25640567How do you write such perfectly painful Spaghetti Decu?It treads that beautiful balance of painful and pitiful that makes me want to take her home and hug her
>>25640594One derives from the other.
>>25640591You bad bad man. D:
>>25640563It worked, didn't it? Though we did have Pinky CONFIRM it was an illusion.>>25640570Uh, yes? QB can think whatever he wants but it's up to Murderface to make the call.
>>25640579That'll be the ending. The first post of MGNQ quoted verbatim, same image and everything, just without the choice of name.Calling it now.
>>25640572Quadruple Giga Hitler
>>25640607Aye, but from Wikipedia, the Parthian shot is done with an insult which I clearly do not intend. Thanks anyways.
>>25640626It would be a fitting end.
>>25640626But with a golden shield instead of a fucked up one.
>>25640344Is it too late to...include the illusion detection thing?Not really! I can work it in if everyone agrees.>>25640553She's around 17 or 18 now, physical age.>>25640559Hahaha!
>>25640626It never ends!>>25640631I was not aware of that.
>>25640498So, being seen on the net as a mundane bodyguard is good PR...but what about blatantly magical stuff? Do the Incubators prefer the public perception that it's all a big fake, in which case we'd probably get a bit of a scolding for making more work for the censors and spin artists covering our ass, or would they just not give a shit?
>>25640590I don't use paypal I'm afraid. Plus, I have less money than sense, so the dick-sucking would sadly come first. Oh well, as long as tomorrow's thread doesn't end up cancelled I'll probably survive with only minor signs of withdrawal.
>>25640590But it's Hitler from Legend of Koizumi, so it's hard to get too mad at her.
>>25640612>It worked, didn't it? Though we did have Pinky CONFIRM it was an illusion.Um. Do you not see the problem with the statement "If we assume we're in an illusion and we're not, it's fine" combined with "Last time we shot ourselves in the head to escape an illusion." ?Because those two combined -- if you really, truly, honestly believed you were in as big of an illusion as last time -- say "Shoot yourself in the head to get out of the illusion" AND "... and if you're wrong about being in an illusion, it's not such a big deal."
>>25640642Everyone agrees; checking for magic IS something smart to do especially with Chiaki knowing this girl sings and then people fall in love with her. Check for magic.
>>25640640MGNQ: New Game+ Edition
>>25640579Extra bonus points if we wake up in a new place without our cohorts to remind us immiedately.
>>25640642hahaha is not different than haha you fuckwhy do you play with my heart
>>25640642>Not really! I can work it in if everyone agrees.Yes, I think everyone agrees that it's a good idea. Because it's not obtrusive, and it's not a major disaster waiting to happen like shooting a video camera during a live stream.
>>25640626And then with everyone we know dead the sequel starts in Brazil.
>>25640642>Not really! I can work it in if everyone agrees.Do you want us to revote it or something? How would you like us to show our agreement?
>>25640658What goodies do we unlock? Bonus outfirts for ourselves and the main characters? Can we have Kyoko be in her butler outfit the entire quest?
>>25640646Really so long as we don't defy the laws of reality in such a way that can't be explained away as cg and camera tricks I think we would be okAnd anyway Kharn managed to not out the entire thing so I really doubt that it is that tightly enforced
>>25640572Sabretooth with jetpack.>>25640591Hahaha!>>25640550Ah, very soon!>>25640605Hahaha, well, thank you! I tried my best to bring her characterization through without just blatantly referencing her as 'here, it's Spaghetti-chan, look how spaghetti she is'!
>>25640654Whoops, linked the wrong post here. Should be>>25640627
>>25640642I meant like the Ron Paul 'It hasn't even begun'/'Why didn't you listen'/'You could have stopped it'/etc thing but that works too. >>25640655Obviously I meant SHOOTING OURSELF IN THE HEAD can wait until we confirm it, but we have other methods available, such as contacting Midori via soulgem.
>>25640682>KyokoI have some bad news, Anon
>>25640646The Incubators do let the public argue and debate on whether or not what they saw was fake, just CGI, or actually real. There are a few magical girls are real conspiracy theorists websites out in MGNQ land. But with the Incubators handling the media, well, things can get kind of muddled up.>>25640656Alright, then!>>25640679I'll just work it in, you'll see how!
>>25640686I just ate spaghetti while reading the end of the thread, it was nice. It really made me feel empathy for all the poor spaghetti littering the floor wherever she goes.
>>25640683>And anyway Kharn managed to not out the entire thing so I really doubt that it is that tightly enforcedActually, she didn't really have any reality-defying powers, except insanely high combat aptitude, strength, reflexes, and speed, from what we've seen of her fight.So there probably wasn't much to cover up besides the body count.
>>25640718I now want to meet a MGNQ agent Multer out to prove that Megukas are real.
>>25640721Me too actually.
>>25640727The limbs might be a bit harder to explain.
>>25640718i also agree that we should scan for magic, if we do it as a part of room security it'll be less suspicious.
>>25640682Next time Decu pulls an OOPS SORRY IT'S RAINING ON THE MOON NO QUEST TONIGHT, someone should run that as Magical Girl Noir Quest: New Game Plus Bootleg Edition. With, like, bad MSPaint OP pic and everything.Either that or a beach episode. Does Mitakihara have a beach? Eh if it doesn't we can just get Midorin to illusion one up for us.>>25640732>his face when Scully is a retired meguca
>>25640746If I remember right from her flashback arc Malal uses magic to make Kharn's limbs look normal.
>>25640718How much autonomy from QB's directives do we have?People like >>25640612 appear to believe that being Warmaster makes us independent enough to ignore what QB wants.
>>25640761It did appear to be on the coast. We could also go to one of those massive in door pools with a fake beach every anime seems to have.
>>25640746Malal used magic to make Kharn's limbs look normal. And Kharn retired to Siberia when Malal died, so no need to keep up the illusions.
>>25640718So basically, even if we have to pull something flagrantly magical and it gets caught on Ruri's webcast, QB probably won't be upset at all?
>>25640814She just shot sparkles from her eye. Pretty sure it's not that weird for Ruricons or whatever.
>>25640761>agical Girl Noir Quest: New Game Plus Bootleg Edition. With, like, bad MSPaint OP pic and everything.I'm tempted to do this.
>>25640814Within reason! Please let common sense dictate your actions!>>25640771You can ignore QB's directives up to a reasonable point, but it will affect his opinion of you.
>>25640837If Decu was ok with it that is.
>>25640771>ignore what QB wantsBut that's not what I think at all.I think if QB says 'It would be a good PR opportunity' we can say 'Don't wanna'.If he says 'You are doing a PR op. Behave.' we say 'ur a dickbutt but you feed me grief seeds so I guess I don't have a choice'.For fuck's sake, he presented three missions to us and told us we had to take at least ONE. We decided to take TWO. Yes, now that we've taken it we have an obligation to do what the job called for, but if it all turns out to be too much trouble that it is worth we can make the call to can it and go do something that won't result in a PR disaster.
>>25640839How soon until you can do the green green writups?
>>25640718MGNQ: >What you wanted to runhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJ8JRfsurt4>What you actually runhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZxUinHVUbUIs this an accurate summary of MGNQ, Decu?

>>25640870I'm not doing them, another writeperson is! >>25640880Hahaha..haha! :'D
>>25640924What IS QB's opinion of us, anyway?And how low does it need to go before we get retired like a defective replicant?

>>25640954This is objectively retarded and I hate you for making me laugh so hard.
>>25640834See, I was under the impression that the Ruri sparkles was metaphor for how sickeningly cutesy her mannerisms are.>>25640839Basically, I'm just trying to get a feel for how justified we are in trying to get the camera turned off. It's hard to figure out what "common sense" as it pertains to elements that simply don't exist in our world. A lot of people seem to have the impression that magical girls are in a Masquerade-like situation -- push comes to shove, there ARE mechanisms in place to cover your ass up, but the Powers That Be would really, REALLY prefer you not take it far enough to require any of that in the first place. Keep your head down and all the magical stuff strictly clandestine. But from what you're saying here, it sounds like basically anything we might do in the course of our bodyguard duties should be totally no big deal, even if millions of otaku see it broadcast live on the intertubes.
>>25640990More than likely it was a metaphor, because I don't think Chiaki is so retarded as to overlook that kind of thing on her own.
>>25640990It's probably all about plausable deniability. We probably shouldn't do anything that can't be explained away as a random act of off-screen arson or a bomb or something.
>>25640990>Basically, I'm just trying to get a feel for how justified we are in trying to get the camera turned off. We're Chiaki. The first things she would have done is want the camera out of her face. Chiaki's a private person, after all.
>>25641023Justified short of our own personal preferences, I mean. Certainly, it would be totally in-character to ask for it turned off, but it would certainly add another dimension to the request if it's also a matter of preventing the public from finding out things they aren't supposed to know.
