You let out a sigh, before pushing your plate towards Sayaka, letting her have what's left of your pancakes. She blinks at you, here, before murmuring something that sounds suspiciously like a 'thank you' without sounding like she's been asked to gargle plutonium.You allow the guard to stew in his own soup, first. You give him a once over, leaning your elbows on the table, resting your chin on your interlaced fingers. Glaring at him from over the rim of your glasses.Sayaka's right, he does look like someone just picked up off the street just because he's got enough muscles to look intimidating, and then given a gun and a poorly-tailored suit. He also looks young for someone in this line of work - not like the grizzled, scarred lot you've always associated with the job.It's only after what seems like an eternity - you waiting for him to start wondering when the other boot would drop - that you ask him. Short, direct, and to the point, an unexpected verbal punch that makes him flinch."Why did you let the Yakuza in?"
>>25771391You pause here. Just as he opens his mouth to reply, you cut him off by drawing your Golden Desert Eagle from inside your jacket and placing it carefully on the table. The cold, lustrous metal warming immediately at your touch."Don't you like your kneecaps?" You ask this, still in deadpan tones. "Have they wronged you in some way?"You ignore Sayaka sputtering and snorting orange juice out of her nose, the stricken Eversor cramming a linen napkin into her face while groaning about how much it stings."...I...I like my kneecaps where they are, please, Ma'am. But...really, we stopped them, we didn't want them to get in, but their boss just smiled and took something out of his wallet, and--""Money?" Sayaka recovers just enough to sound snide. "What, you guys got bought off? Fuck, Murderface, I'll do it." She looks around, before staring at the pancakes you've given her. "Pancakes are technically cakes, right? I can probably pull one out of there if I--""N-no! No, ma'am, we don't work that way!" The guard shakes his head furiously, positively sweating bullets now. "It was some sorta card, like a business card - but it was glowing and stuff! A-and when we saw it, the next moment we realized they were already on their way out! It...it was like some sorta dream, or we blacked out and just woke up, or something!"Hnh. That's...well. That's certainly curious. It doesn't seem like he's lying, though.How do you react?
wow, weeks of only seeing this in archive and I'm now 1st onspooky
>>25771399A bunch of supposedly trained security professionals just randomly blacked out with the flash of a business card? Pressure him for more details.
>>25771399[x] details, tell me ANYTHING about the card and what you experienced[x] examine card from inventory
>>25771391wow this is early in the morning, you usually don't start for another 2 hours or so.
>>25771399[x]"The card. Describe it. Whas there something written on it? What colour was it? Was there anyone else with those Yaks, probably someone looking like a girl in her teens just like me or the Blueberry?"
>>25771399>>25771391>golden weapon business cardWHY THE FUCK DID THE YAKUZA GET THIS?
>>25771399"Begin. From the start. Don't miss out a detail on the card. And get someone to bring in the security footage. Now."
>>25771433this wording>>25771431last thread cut out unexpectedly
>>25771399[x] "Well fuck. Can't actually fault you for that one.Now, Miss Ruri tells me there's a traitor around here somewhere. Who is it?"
>>25771445>last thread cut out unexpectedlyPic related
>>25771399>You pause here. Just as he opens his mouth to reply, you cut him off by drawing your Golden Desert EagleOh god you have to be fucking kidding me.
>>25771444>And get someone to bring in the security footage. Now."[x] YES
>>25771444this, completely and utterly this.
>>25771399>[x] Bring in the goddamn security footage.
[x] "The next time that fellow tries to flash you that card, shoot him and all of his friends in the kneecaps."
Aww yeah. Miss Matsuda, are you fucking serious? You are? Alright then.>>25771444Quadding this.
>>25771444>>25771399[x] Go with this, for sure.
>>25771399Didn't we accept a business card from this guy? Are we compromised?!
>>25771491"in fact just shoot him if you see him, hes mob and mob is bad as a rule, don't deal with mob"
>>25771535Depends on what the footage shows.If there moved like as if under instruction, we burn the card. If it was more dazed and on the floor, we send the card back to QB for analysis.Either way we remove it from our inventory, asap.
>mfw unexpected MGNQI have no face. Also, calm down about the card. If that was the same card, why would he randomly give it away? Shit's too valuable, yo.Though next time we see him, his lot or rival megucas, we shoot them no questions asked and loot the card. Could be useful.
>>25771615Maybe he can make multiple copies.
>>25771399Magic? Sounds like something that Nico would make and something which would explain why our Yak mate when with 10'th instead of 9'th.
>>25771645But this one doesn't glow. >>25771652Tell me more.
>>25771433 >>25771444The guard couldn't have nodded quickly enough. "Y-yes, ma'am. The card...the card looked like, uh, begging your pardon here, but it looked like from one of those card games that're really popular with the kids, you know? The ones that they make anime out for to sell? With...with the monsters, and spells, that kind of thing? And it was glowing with a kinda...green light, ma'am. Like it was burning in his hand, but not really." He looks at you, then back at Sayaka, wringing his hands. "I-I know it sounds crazy, ma'am, but that's what I saw. That's what we saw.""Hoh. Well. First time I've heard of something like that." Sayaka growls from around a mouthful of pancake. You tut at the useless interruption from the Eversor, before gesturing for the guard to continue."A-and we didn't see any girl out there, ma'am. Just him and his group." The guard shakes his head. "Although...they did come in from a limousine, ma'am, they parked directly in front of the Hotel. The windows were tinted, so we didn't get a good look at who was inside."Hm. Curiouser and curiouser.You'd like the video footage of this, if it exists. ...There should be footage of it, right? This kind of Hotel, there should be some sort of CCTV at the front..."T-that's..." The guard lowers his gaze down on the floor. "That's what took us so long to get here, ma'am. I wanted to get it up here personally, so...so you don't shoot off our kneecaps, ma'am. But..." He looks up again, helplessly. "Somehow the cameras covering the entrance shut down as soon as their limo came into, ma'am. We only just got them started up again, earlier. Tried scouring it for any clues, but all that's shown there is the limo. It doesn't even show the guy getting out of the car."[1/2]
>>25771668"I-I....I can verify that, Miss Matsuda," Deepthroat says as she pokes her head nervously back into the room. "He...he was almost crying, earlier, because we couldn't find anything on the recordings.."The guard nods weakly. "I...ma'am, I know it was a horrible breach, and my unit and I are so freakin' sorry about this. If...if you really need to shoot somebody's knees out, ma'am, I'll volunteer for it. Not the other guys, they got family to take care of. I...I don't even got a girlfriend." He laughs feebly.How do you react?
>>25771673>The next time you see them, you call for me. Do not engage them on your own. Dismissed.Well, nothing we can do about this now, just sth to keep in mind. Time to find out our graph for the day from Ruri?
>>25771673[X] let him go.obvious magic is obvious, they really couldn't have resisted against that. He should have contacted us as soon as he regained his senses though, that deserves a kick in the shin.>probably not a security leak?
>>25771673Joke time!>[x]Point gun at knees, pause, and go "bang!""It looks like another magical girl was involved, QB confirmed it when I talked to him. Go back to your post and make sure the common and garden rapist doesn't get here."
>>25771673[x] "I only kneecap people for incompetence, treachery, or if they annoy me. You're on your way to the third, with that snivelling, but you're not quite there yet.No, Miss Ruri tells me there's a mole. I intend to find this person, and you are going to help me."
>>25771668>"Y-yes, ma'am. The card...the card looked like, uh, begging your pardon here, but it looked like from one of those card games that're really popular with the kids, you know? The ones that they make anime out for to sell? With...with the monsters, and spells, that kind of thing? And it was glowing with a kinda...green light, ma'am. Like it was burning in his hand, but not really."children's card game
>>25771673[x] Just send him off. Burn the card we got, and inform Ruri that the group likely has MG support, and to be extra careful of them.
>>25771673Point at him and laugh.Actually, tell him to move his men into a wider screen, and have them radio in if things start to mysteriously break - we'll need his radio. If this happens again, then there'll be kneecappin's for motivation.And /then/ point at him and laugh.
>>25771399Sayaka, security footage pleaseIf we confirm this then you get to keep your kneecaps, new rule if someone refuses to leave after the second time they are to be brought down and removed from the premises, if they reach for anything take them down, permanently if necessaryWho else was there? Did the Yaks have someone who seemed out of place, either a girl around my age or someone who just didn't seem right in their crewFinally report all suspicious activity to me or her ( pointing to Sayaka ) if I am not reachable for the duration of this concert and we will deal with it if anything weird like this card happens again
>>25771673"Hm. Well, if fucked-up magics are involved, then that's beyond what you're reasonably expected to handle. That's what i'm here for.In any case, we'll take precautions. We have a specialist arranged for this sort of thing. Any and all potential problems get reported to me directly and immediately, no matter how trivial they might seem.For now, I need you to do a variety of things that require you to use your legs. Reorganise the patrols, set everyone on higher alert status, and set up some extra standalone cameras. In fact, keep one guy near a window with a film camera to snap any unauthorised or suspicious persons. If it's digital jamming, then film might still work. Get a disposable from the convenience store if no-one in the press gallery has one to spare.Handle that to my satisfaction and i'll continue giving you tasks that require you to have working legs. Dismissed."
>>25771727>millenium puzzles AND golden weapon faggotry all in the same universe well fuck everythinhg.
>>25771673"That will not be necessary, yet.It is obvious that you and your men were unprepared for whatever he pulled out. However, i will expect you to do better the next time.I will need more details. Not all your men should have stationed at the entrance. Was everyone affected or just those at the entrance and its vicinity?"Get as much details, it might be a AOE attack. In which case a 2nd response team might not be affected. Say if they are in constant comms, they can be placed to rush such a group if something like this happens again.We're gonna need a tech expert to scoure the records too.
>>25771732Aaaaand too fucking slowpoke
>>25771742Chiaki being forced to play a children's card game that Kyouko is actually a huge fan of.
>>25771752"You activated my trap card! Mark 5 Anti-personnel Land Mine! It's Super Effective!""Noooooooo my life points! And My Leg!"
>>25771752>kyoko lets us borrow a deck because we think for some reason millenium puzzles and golden weapons are one in the same as different methods of pinky bullshitand then MGNQ was yugioh quest.
>>25771673[x] Pick up the gun and rack the slide, then say: "You're lucky. You won't see the business end just yet. Now get me a headset, I want you to put me onto the communications net and call in if something like that ever happens again."
>>25771768>heart of the cards is just us using timestop to put the cards we want at the top of the deck.
>>25771718This sounds good, but I'd rather play the existence of the mole closer to the vest for a bit yet. Ask for a list of the security details and the dossier of each instead, imo.
>>25771782>yami is pinkyFUCK!
>>25771792>>25771782>>25771778>>25771768>>25771767>>25771752>>25771742>>25771727>>25771720guys i thought about it and it horrifys me. we have officially jumped the shark in thought.
>>25771399>you cut him off by drawing your Golden Desert EagleUm.. Why did we pull THIS ONE out even without batting an eye?Also, considering that we nearly blew Sayaka`s head off with this thing I´m kinda surprised that there was no reaction from her.Guys, please there is no need to pull the DEagle on Non-Megucas.
>>25771718[x] do NOT mention the mole.For all we know, the head might be the mole. Just like the previous one we dealt with.
>>25771782>>25771792We will cruise through all the ordinary duels like cheese. It's when we won't be able to cheat against Pinky and have to actually start learning the rules that we'll be fucked.
>>25771811Who said anything about leaning the rules?
>>25771800Peons only respect the big ass handcannon.Not as much fear if you pull out a holdout .22.Besides, it was in the inventory. If we had to count on the wheel-of-weapon-fortune, what would his face be if it deposited a Fishbed?
>>25771800That was pre soul-splice though.We seem to have vastly better control post-op.
>>25771823That...fucking..scene. Didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
>>25771782We should keep this use in mind if we ever accept an invitation to the inter-Officio poker games.
>>25771828>What would happen if Fishbed?I dunno.
>>25771800>You ignore Sayaka sputtering and snorting orange juice out of her nose, the stricken Eversor cramming a linen napkin into her face while groaning about how much it stings.This was one sentence after we pulled it, I think that counts as a reaction!
>>25771872She was reacting to our funny.
>>25771872the horror of seeing the weapon combined with that one liner.deadly!
>>25771877Chiaki could to stand-up!
>>25771673[x] "... Your name wouldn't happen to be Kyosuke, would it?"
>>25771673[x] "It can`t be helped. Should one of your men notice something odd again, contact me or the Blue with the bad temper on the spot."Just let him go, no need to scare him further sicne it obviously wasn`t his fault.But at least we can confirm that some sort of Megucamagic is involved.
>>25771856...there must be a TSF in there somewhere, by god.
>>25771855Honestly, would you even play with someone whom you know can stop time?They probably banned chiaki from all similar officio competitions.
>>25771911Well we can't do it without being spotted anymore.
>>25771888While that would be hilarious, he's not the type to grow up into a 'big strong bodyguard'
Can the guard draw what the card looked like? We need to make sure if it was a yugioh or a MTG card.
>>25771919Not in the officio anyways.But in mikitahara or any casino...heh.
>>25771919we'll just have to fix it.
>>25771911we warmaster now, bans aint got shit on us
>>25771925Oh, I know there is very little hope, but consider that if Sayaka did not make her wish for him in this timeline (speculation on my part), he'd have to find another use for THE HAND THAT FEELS NOTHINGGGGGGG
>>25771959 you mean aside from endless masturbation? /spoiler]
>>25771925We didn't think a certain girl could grow up to be a tough-as-nails tomboy Culexus, either...........
>>25771966You make it sound like 14 year old boys don't ALREADY masturbate endlessly.
>>25771985 true but I meant after the 14 year old boy phase. Seriously a hand that feels nothing? It would make him masturbate forever since it would feel like someone else's hand a bit
>>25771959Actually i think she did. Might have been in the christmas special but it was mentioned that sayaka got over a boy she wished for.
>>25771959probably because shes not an emo depressed zombine witch chick.
>>25771673Text Kyuubi the new info. Man portable spells, even if single shot / utility, are something he needs to be made aware of pronto - major security concern for infiltration and espionage. Pic Related.
>>25772006Ah, fair enough. The only thing about it I remember is from the QA thread where she refuses to discuss what she wished for. Too bad.
>>25772023I like to think she wished for him to choke on NTRGreen's dick
>>25772053While she was in lesbians with Kyouko.
>>25771898I sure hope it's the XG-70d. We could do with an Arms Fort that's not too enormous.
>Our opponent is a magical girl with the power to use the Abilities of TCG-Cards in Real life.
>>25772132that would be gayand i think that would be tomoko's shit.because obviously deepthroat is magical girl tomoko.
>>25772153YOU HAVE FUCKED UP ALREADY
Rolled 82, 5 = 87>>25772153Who did we summon this time.
>>25772153it was nice while it lasted
>>25772172Another meteor shower on decu's moon palace
>>25772153You fail at life forever.
so i forget the chant, how does it go again?
>>25772215Wait, the internet still works even without power on the moon?
>>25772215you need to understand, /tg/ also carries the remains of what was /x/old /x/ can do shit like that when they fuck up.
>>25772229Deculture has redundant power systems to start up generators or battery banks when power failsHe also has a broadcast tower on it's own system to put his Internet back on as soon as he can get it raised and in positionMoon people need to be crazy prepared
>>25772230the fuck goes on at /x/?
>>25772229His internet lives it's own life. Or is powered by healingenergy. Maybe both.
>>25772229Orcs can make things work through the power of belief and WAAAGH.Neckbeards can make things work through the power virginity and waifuism, anon.This is the true nature of the universe.
>>25772229I think technically internet can work in some cases despite power outages, assuming you have some alternate means of powering your devices. Granted, I'm only going off the fact that I still could use the phone back when I had a power out. Maybe this only applies to dial-up.
>>25772250as someone who was part of /x/ before it becausr the casualfest that is b 2.0 it essentially was a large nexus of all things supernatural.a shitload of occult information could have been had there and you could have found all kinds of crazy shit out.and about once a week someone would try summoning something, and half the time fucking up, causing horrible screeching and crunching sounds in the backround when they try to stream it.
>>25772250These days? Bullshit creepy pasta threads and social shitOld days? Demon summoning rumors, ghosts, psychic bullshittery and supposed secret experimentsMore tin foil hats than shadowrun could ever wish to handle
>>25772280>and about once a week someone would try summoning something, and half the time fucking up, causing horrible screeching and crunching sounds in the backround when they try to stream it.What the fuck. This legit?
>>25772284>More tin foil hats than shadowrun could ever wish to handleThats not even remotely possible.
>>25772288yupi remember once someone just casually reading from the greater keys of solomon, and just shit starting lighting on fire in the background, and then the person ran off screamingit was horrible.
I just checked Decu's twitter 15 minutes ago, caught myself up and we've already got trouble. I am cursed.
>>25772309Then what's the peoblem? /x/ seems to have the best weapons for driving off newfags and cancer within their rank. Post the occult books and encourage them to try. Voila, something interesting might happen.
>>25772290Son, when you have seen the shit they used to get up to shadowrun is kiddy stuff
>>25772320BURN THE WITCH
>>25772215AHAHAAHA! I FINALLY KNOW THE GREATEST MYSTERYI A COWORKER OF MINE ALSO HAD A POWER + INTERNET-OUTAGE AT THE SAME MOMENT WHILE BEING IN CONFERENCE! NOW KNOW WHERE DECU LIVES!
>>25772336The en masse migration, invasion and other ions of /b/tards too stupid to worry
>>25772336that was old /x/do you remember when /b/ completely shut down and levelled /x/ by migrating entirely over there?/x/ is gone m8, it got taken over by /b/ kiddies.
>>25772354Your coworker lives on the moon?
>>25772363No. On the Philippines.
>>25772354Install hidden cameras in his house!For science purposes.Or, alternatively, blackmail like in my chinese porn mags.
>>25772373That is on the moon?
>>25772345How do you know he's a witch?
>>25772373I'm fairly sure he lives in Indonesia actually
>>25772361Sometimes I think it would be a good idea if when you first visit 4chan you can only go to /b/, then other boards slowly unlock over time, maybe even have multiple versions of some boards, with newfags starting with access to the shitposting version and geting the good one later.
guysinternet runs on powerif power goes out so does internetnot rocket science
>>25772391>implying you know these thingsWe just burn him and expect things to get better. If they do, he was a witch. If not, he wasn't.It's not that complicated.
>>25772399Decu pls no misleading
>>25772401Fuck no, then everyone would just be /b/tardsI wouldn't mind if they invaded /mlp/ though, no matter who lost we would all win
>>25772404Silly anon.Moon internets run on Tewis.
>>25772421It runs on liquified earth rabbits? Those Lunarian bastards!
>>25772404Then explain why phones work during a power outage.
>>25772421I must go to the moon now
>>25772401oh i agree, that would fix so much shit.
>>25771700 >>25771706 >>25771718 >>25771724 >>25771738You drum your fingers on the table. This shouldn't have been surprising, really, not after Kyuubey telling you that the Tojo Group's involved with the Tenth. You're also impressed with how they did it - if you were a scumsucking piece of shit yakuza with Magical Girl resources, you'd also find a way for them to provide support without being overt about it - seeing as any other Yakuza organization worth their back tattoos would also have access to the same resources. Subtle.You tell the guard, then, that you'll take his word for now, and you'll let him keep his kneecaps. The card he saw was no doubt Magical in property - and it's unreasonable for you to expect him and his group to be able to defend against it. This is what you're here for, anyway, and you'll handle it yourself. But they'll have to help."R-right, ma'am. Whatever you want us to do, ma'am, we'll do it." He rips off a snappy salute, here, making you wince as he very nearly judo-chops himself in the forehead.Right. Well. First, you want him to spread his men out. Don't just cluster up on the entrance. Divide them into squads, regular rotating patrols, constant radio contact at all times. Get the CCTV going back online, and have the hotel staff set up other cameras but don't connect them to the main network - just on their own, and hidden as much as possible. You'll want a headset set to their frequency, too, so you can keep track of whatever's happening. Finally, any and all potential problems - including people trying to get into the hotel - has to be cleared by you first. You or the bad-tempered Blueberry beside you."R-right. Gotcha, ma'am. I'll relay all of that, and get that headset to you pronto." The guard nods, looking at Sayaka - and the Eversor returns the stare with a glare that could have melted someone from their carbonite prison. He gulps and looks back down on his feet.[1/2]
>>25772446Well. At least he's taking it seriously. You ask him, then, what his name is. You'd like to know the name of the guard who just narrowly avoided having his kneecaps shot off."K-Kamijou Kyosuke, ma'am," The guard says, snapping a salute yet again - and making Sayaka choke on her orange juice once more. "At your service, of course."Kyosuke? Huh. Well. That's fine. He's dismissed."Thank you, ma'am." The guard bows, before turning smartly and leaving, pulling on the door and closing it gently and carefully behind him. You then hear, from the corridor, the sound of Deepthroat whimpering as she bumps into what sounds like a solid wall, and Kyosuke furiously apologizing, before running away.Cards. That's new. You try taking a sip of the orange juice yourself, wincing at the horrible, acidic taste. What kind of person actually likes drinking this stuff for breakfast? At least water's more gentle, yet more bracing and refreshing.You should probably tell Ruri about this, anyway. Once she gets out of the bathroom.You make to pick up the Desert Eagle from the table - to put it back in its holster - when you notice that Sayaka's gone quiet beside you, her hands curled into fists on her lap.Now what's wrong?"...Nothing, Murderface. Just...just leave me alone. And for fuck's sake, put that away."How do you react?
>>25772415Most people go to /b/ first anyway. The idea is that they can't go anywhere else until the time most people ususaly get tired of that shit. It won't be perfect, but it may work.
>>25772453>K-Kamijou KyosukeWell.... Fuck.
>>25772453>>"K-Kamijou Kyosuke, ma'am."Deculture, why do you do this.[X] Put the gun away. Just stare at Sayaka and ask what crawled up her ass and died.
>>25772453[x] "Sayaka, you're on liason duty with the guards. Make sure they don't slack off."Note to guards; if in doubt and someone's taking something up; tell them watch the guy's feet, kneecap first and ask questions later. Tell em to put up signs saying "DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING OUT OF YOUR POCKETS."Let's go get the story out of Ruri if we've got time before the webcast gets back on. Hopefully it won't be going out again.
>>25772453>>25772446>kyosukeaw fuck.fuck my life; fuck everything ever.jesus fuck thats dicks.>implying chiaki wouldn't remember this guy is the reason why sakaka tends to keep killing herself and she has to keep cleaning after her bullshit after the fact in pretty much every timeline.
>>25772453Burn the card!Also, Sayaka not recognizing him seems far-fetched.
>>25772453[x] "I may be socially inept, but even I can tell something is wrong. You are the head Eversor of the Officio, and my Equerry. We are on a high-importance mission that could go horribly wrong at any moment. Tell me now or I call Kyoko and get her to make you spill."
>>25772493>Also, Sayaka not recognizing him seems far-fetched.She probably did recognize him and tried to play it cool until we pulled a gun on him, or something. I dunno.
>>25772493read:>>25772453> - and making Sayaka choke on her orange juice once more. "At your service, of course."oh its obvious she knows him.and i think we all know this story, the better question is how in the fuck did she not end up killing herself in this timeline?
>>25772505Why'd she get so shocked after hearing his name then?
>>25772460>>25772477NO-ONE CARES ABOUT KAMIJOUHE'S TERRIBLEWE DON'T NEED TO ASK ABOUT HIM BECAUSE HE'S TERRIBLE
>>25772453[X] as weird as it may be for us, dealing with troubled colleagues is part of the job. If she feels the need to yell at someone, we're right here.
>>25772453>Is this going to have an impact on the mission? Otherwise we don't care. Holster the DEagle and wait for Ruri to get her shit together.
We should get rid of him if an opportunity presents itself. We can't let Kyoko and Sayaka's purest form of love be ruined.
>>25772493She probably hasn't seen him since middle school, and it's been a few years since then. He's probably gained some serious width after doing any kind of strength training, too.
>>25772453Put the gun away."Sayaka, I know what people mean when they say 'nothing' is wrong, just like there's 'nothing' wrong with me. You only acted weird once he said his name.If you don't want to talk about it, fine, but I have to ask if any relation you have to Kamijou Kyousuke is going to interfere with the mission."
>>25772500What exactly is an Equerry?
>>25772512>and i think we all know this story, the better question is how in the fuck did she not end up killing herself in this timeline?Probably the Ninth Officio has good mental health care.
>>25772534Let's not.We really only have so many free cards when it comes to "selfish, indiscriminate murder" and we should save those for people who are ACTUAL threats.Like whoever's dating Mami.
>>25772453I KNEW IT! I FUCKING KNEW IT! CALLED IT! RIGHT HERE AHAHAHAHAHAHAH
Wasn't Kamijou pretty wealthy? And he certainly had a lot of connections in the classical music world even if he couldn't play any more. Why on earth would he go into security work?
>>25772540It's like a regular Query, only done online.E-query!
>>25772540first mate.literally the second in command right underneath the warmaster.
>>25772453Let her be, this obviously affects her and we are trying to be less of an asshole in order to get a good working relationship with SayakaPlus we don't need her to metaphorically cry on our shoulder, that shit would just be too awkwardGo see Noriko and make sure she has nothing else for us now and then check on RuriPut the gun away first though.If we really want to find out we can just ask Kyouko later on anyway so Sayaka wished for Kyousuke to GET HUGE? or the side effect of the wish was GET HUGE?
>>25772543Kyoko is great mental health care.
>>25772547Not that kind of get rid anon. I meant have the security company send a different guy to lead this group.
>>25772543Well, mor elike counceling for troubled teenage girls. Kyubey did say that it was a huge drain to form a contract, so he probably wants to keep every one he makes. At any rate, gotta be leaving for work. Leave you with this, cropped out from the height chart. Will be doing profile shots for everyone eventually.
>>25772549>I'm a man now, daddy. Watch me!
>>25772543In the VN you can save Sayaka by havign her hook up with Kyoko.
>>25772453[x]Look at your gun, put two and two together. Then put it away. "...Right. Sorry about that. You want the rest of these pancakes? I have an idol to check on and question a little more."
>>25772491We are talking about a girl who semi regularly woke up forgetting her nameThe only things she remembered was Mami is pancake goddess, Sayaka is a bitch and Kyouko is a bro
>>25772549Maybe this was one of the worlds where he actually got into rock guitar instead before his accident, and he fell in with a bad crowd + rebelliousness and became a hired thug.
>>25772582thing is that she more or less gained the memories of her past life.that was during the witch barrier mess, in which we nearly lost our green haired fangirl.i think if she thought about it she would remember.
>>25772574Which was a nice little nod towards the best red/blue pairing
>>25772548That out of the way, I am now starting to think about the implications if Kyosuke got bored of the violin like a year after his life-changing miracle and decided to something more exciting, like bodyguard duty
>>25772589Mmmh, but he was still famous, and most rich musicians don't exactly hang out with that kind of crowd, even if they play rock or whatever.
>>25772591Did she really get past life memories though?I got the feeling that she remembered her past identities in this timeline and got a sort of knowledge of her having been through the loops but no solid info
>>25772591I guess it does make sense that it may have slipped our mind. I mean Homu never interacted with him in person.
>>25772582She didn't remember Kyouko is a bro, her first reaction to Kyouko was annoyance after all.
Let's not forget that Sayaka also looked seriously bummed out after meeting Ruri. For all Murderface might suspect, the events may be related, so it may make more sense for her to assume that's the case and ask her about Ruri.
>>25772540https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EquerryBasically, in Ye Olde Times, the Equerry took care of the King's horses. This has hilarious implications in the world of hentai doujins.Here, she is basically the person we tell to hit people with a stick if we don't want to do the hitting ourselves.>>25772548He stole your idea. Again.
>>25772404Evidently his power went out and then when it came back on his internet was outsooo yeah
>>25772612"pocky fellating bitch" as I recall
>>25772617please tell me the officio rank got it's name from warmasters reading too much hentai
>>25772624There was no real venom behind it and she quickly did warm up to herIt was more the sort of tired insult that you give someone you don't mind too much than I hate you you goddamned pocky fellating bitch
Calling bullshit that it's the same guy. Probably just the same name.Calm thine Shadowruns
Wonder if we can tell her to take the rest of the day off.
>>25772617>contempory usage is now for a personal attendantSadly while the horse hentai manga idea is funny it isn't that big a stretchAlso it was used in 40k a few times but most notably with Kharn the betrayer who was the equerry of Angron
>>25772617Why won't you let me have my beautiful dream, anon?Anyway I also vote [x] send Sayaka down with the guards.Because if being Meguca is suffering, and being Sayaka is suffering, then being Meguca Sayaka should be, like, double suffering.Math!
>>25772692>Sadly while the horse hentai manga idea is funny it isn't that big a stretchIt is for the girls involved.
>>25772685Bit hard when she won the "four days with Ruri-San" contest and is expected to be seen with herWe should note her down for a day or so R&R with Kyouko as soon as this and the smash and grab is resolved though
>>25772721Or we take her along on the next mission, and covertly buy a Ruri cosplay outfit. We find the girliest man we can on the oil rig, dress him up, and let Sayaka have some sweet SWEET catharsis
>>25772718Oh wowThat is the best time for me to have made a typo that someone picked up onI spat my drink all over my screen
>>25772737She is coming for the oil rig mission which is the smash and grabI meant after that.
>>25772721We can at least call Kyoko to come drop by later with something good.We won't ask about it and we all have jobs but during down time we can cheer and support each other.
>>25772685Sure. Probably still hasn't gotten over her idol being a huge bitch and now she's looking angry and out of sorts. We could take her off the mission and send her home if we wanted to.
>>25772754We could also tell her Idol to drop the act and be herself around Sayaka thereby restoring her faith in the girl who was actually what she imagined
>>25772754Its also quite possibly the largest insult we can deliver to her right now. "Sorry Sayaka, you're just too sad and emotional and incompetent to do your job. That is the judgement of I, the co-worker you hate the most, lay upon you.Go home and cry into a pillow while Kyoko and I do the things we never could rely on you for."I'm all for it!
>>25772796Top. Fucking. Lel. Yeah, okay, let's do it.
>>25772796Oooh man, that would smart so bad. So, so bad. Go for it!
>>25772796Let's not infuriate the Blueberry right now, having competent backup with us is good.We either let her deal with it herself, or offer to listen if she wants to talk, but not that.
>>25772796>>25772817>>25772825Let's not push her down the road to witching out.
>>25772401>when you first visit 4chanAnd how's that work without an account? Don't say browser-based, because then it'll change whenever I'm on a different computer.
>>25771720>>25771668.....if it's a Clow Card there is trouble brewing.
>>25772833Lets just call kyoko to come when she knocks off.More company to drown in alcohol.
>>25772848Card Captor Sakura with golden cards?
>>25772796Cont.Lets pull rank a bit, too. "Did I mention that I'm an amesiac psychopath who has inflicted grevious harm on our boss and his property, and yet he promoted me to top girl over you? ?
>>25772869can we not be the guy she asked us not to be... if we're not afraid of our own boss i doubt shes afraid of us.
>>25772848>>25772866On the plus side, Sakura Kinomoto would be as awesome as balls.On the negative side, if we had to kill her that would suck balls.
>>25772477 >>25772500 >>25772527 >>25772530 >>25772538You glance at your gun, then shake your head and slip it back into its holster - zipping up your jacket once more, completely concealing the Golden Weapon from view. Fine, you tell Sayaka. You're not going to pry, even though she's acting strange as fuck again. You just want to know if this is going to have an impact on the current op."...No. No it's not going to. Now leave me alone, alright, Murderface?" Sayaka's voice is tight and controlled, yet there's the tiniest tremor in it. Whether it's from anger or something else, you don't know. "Shit. Here, of all fucking places. And I thought he was dead." ...Sayaka?"I said--" Sayaka turns to snarl at you, eyes glinting - before blinking as she suddenly backs away, face draining of all color. Shaking her head, she gets up from her seat, wiping her mouth briefly with a napkin and making a beeline for the door. "...Forget it. I'll...go ahead and scout the the floors. Get some fresh air. You need me, call me on my phone." She glares at the door leading to the suite's bathroom. "You tell the idol what's up. I...I just gotta breathe, Murderface. This room's choking me."...Well, you won't count this as dereliction of duty, now, seeing as she's obviously under a lot of stress. But this shit, right here? You'll have to talk about it with her, when she's not in super ultra bitch mode.You get a chortle out of Sayaka with that. "Heh. Fuck you, Murderface." The Eversor manages to show you a faint smile, before walking out and slamming the door behind her. You hear, yet again, the sound of Deepthroat being knocked into the ground, and Sayaka uttering an expletive and an apology at the same time. A moment more, and you hear her footsteps, rapid and quick, but at the opposite direction that Kyosuke went. Leaving you alone with the idol, again. [1/2]
>>25772896You let out a sigh, and walk over to the bathroom. You rap your knuckles against the heavy teak door, after brazenly jiggling the handle and finding it locked.What's taking her so long? Is she having such a breakthrough that she needs to lock herself away, or is she just pooping a whole lot?"N-no! I'll...I'll be out in a moment!" Comes Ruri's slightly panicked voice.And so she was. The idol looking as fresh as she always did when you first met her.Immediately, you tell her about what you found out about the Tojo Group. About who they've allied themselves to, and how they got up to the penthouse without a peep from security. She doesn't look that alarmed, although you do note that she's taking this seriously - unlike the other VIPs who simply waved it off."So a Magical Girl's helping those punks out, huh? Well, that's just great." She puffs her cheeks out in annoyance, before suddenly breaking out in a grin. "Well, that's fine. I've got the real Murder Mayumi as my security detail, right?"...Yeah. She does.In any case, you can ask her some questions, now.What do you ask Kirishima Ruri?
>>25772796>>25772817>>25772825It's chucklefucks like you that screw things up all the time. Why don't you smash your hand with a hammer instead of getting a character killed.
>"K-Kamijou Kyosuke, ma'am," The guard says, snapping a salute yet again - and making Sayaka choke on her orange juice once more. "At your service, of course."Oh Kyosuke, what happened to your art?>"I...I don't even got a girlfriend." He laughs feebly.Even Hitomi got bored of you.
>>25772909What's on the itinerary for today?Has she had a lot of trouble with the Tojo Group in the past?
>>25772896>"Shit. Here, of all fucking places. And I thought he was dead."We have to investigate this when Sayaka has calmed down.
>>25772909>What's this bit about me performing in the concert? The only instruments I play well disperse bullets.>Seriously, keep the camera away from me. We don't need to capture anything..magical.>What's the schedule for today?
>>25772909[x]"So. When are we supposed to get around to that "Having a 'good time'" thing your hiring request mentioned?
>>25772909"Do you have a condition or something that I should know of? I'm going to be with you for the next few days, I don't want to have you suddenly die on me.""What exactly does the group do to its idols? Whats your relationship with them?"
>>25772927>Even Hitomi got bored of you.that's really harsh dude
>>25772927>Oh Kyosuke, what happened to your art?Musicians don't earn shit for cash.He's probably working this job as a sideline to not starve.
>>25772909[x] Do you have any information on the guards here? Specificaly Kamijou Kyosuke?
>>25772915>muh serious quest!If you think that'd result in a character death you're too paranoid for this world.
>>25772909[x]I mean it, seriously, what's the deal with idol panties? Do you just.. Buy new ones each time?
>>25772909[x] "How long ago did the Tojo Group start trying to get her for their own? And have they ever been violent or threatening about it?"
>>25772909"What's with the yaks? "
>>25772942Cue porn music.
>>25772909>[x]"I had no idea the idol business was so aggressive"I wonder when we will have to start acting again.
>>25772909What did you do with Sayaka to so completely shatter her image of you? It is honestly impressive to see her react so muchAlso what is the itinerary for today, might have to plan ahead a little in order to screw up whatever plans these punks have per emptively
>>25772909[x] Itinerary[x] Sayaka[x] Tojo Group
>>25772915The occasional sting of failure can be sweeter than the constant thrill of success sir. Besides, it doesn't feel like a madoka series without Sayaka witching out at least once. But the moment has passed us by.[x] Ask Ruri about her obession over you. Ask how much she knows about us.
>>25772954Last time a similar choice was made, it did result in Midori dying, and completely fucked Mirai over when she could have been saved.
>>25772909I've got a good pile of questions, grouped more or less in paragraphs for each subject."Why is the Tojo group so interested in you? When did they start? What happens to the idols they acquire? Do you have any recollection of them using Magical Girls in the past? Just tell me everything you know about them.You do know that my singing voice sounds like a pile of broken glass, covered in gravel, doused in gasoline, and set on fire. It's not pretty. Adding onto that the only instrument I can play without sounding like I'm skinning a live cat is the triangle. Also, I can't dance or smile, why did you want me to perform in the concert? Do you really need there to always be cameras? They get in the way and prevent me from moving freely or using magic, we're trying to avoid public notice that I'm actually magic. Where'd you get the clout to ask for me specifically instead of being assigned someone else? Why me? I'm not really that special or likable. I'm a bitch, and more than a bit insane. Why are you obsessed with me? How much do you actually know about me?"Also, ask about today's itinerary.
>>25772909[x]Three things.1. What is our iternerary?2. How much camera BS are we going to put up with, and how can we minimize our involvement with them and any concert stuff. FUCK going on stage.3. What the fuck did you do to blueberry, anyway.
>>25772990That was probably going to be at Midori's expense.
>>25772989You are suggesting failure for the sake of failure. That's just stupid.
>>25773013No, it was pretty much confirmed that Mirai could have lived had we not had to salvage her soul gem to save Midori. Even aside from Midori really liking her, she could have been a useful piece if we could have saved her and broken her contract as well, given she had all the knowledge of a real Pleiades Saint and was a powerful swordswoman and summoner.
>>25772909[x] "I think it would be fair, to warn you, though. There is possibly more going on than them just having a Magical Girl. I belive they possibly have more than that. I also happen to have a bit of history with the 10th Officio so me being here might provoke them into doing something stupid, so there is that.Its not something I would worry about since I can take on 3 dozens of them without breaking into a sweat but I thought I should mention it anyway."
>>25773000okay, this. Though I felt the need to add: She asked for the Warmaster, but we were well within our rights to turn down the mission and send someone else instead. There was no clout involved other than Kyubey not immediately rejecting the request and leaving it up to us. Personally, I was against taking the mission (fucking idols) but the Sayaka screen time has been a fair tradeoff, I guess.
>>25773013No, Midori's Soulgem was fully intact, until chucklefucks got it destroyed. And Mirai's Soulgem was intact enough for it to be repaired. If Midori's Soulgem wasn't shattered, then Mirai's Soulgem could have been repaired and they both could have walked out of the Barrier intact.
>>25773032I suggest failure for the sake of theme and fun. It would have been a neat turn to the story, in my opinion. But there's no more chance of it happening now. It wouldn't have the sting if we don't pile the shit on all at once :(
>>25773046>>25773070Not gonna lie here, I don't even remember what happened there.
>>25772909How good is your sniping?
>>25772909No matter what we ask lay back in a chair, pull a cigarette from somewhere, and light it up, enjoy the delicious nicotine.
>>25773093It would have been counter to what Chiaki and the players have been trying to do, which is have a more normalized relationship with Sayaka. It would have just dropped us back to where we were with her back when we pulled the Golden DEagle on her in the taxi, without any benefit. It was a bad idea, and it would not have made for any kind of interesting turn to the story; it would have just made it more of a grind.
>>25773109>unread message... we DID read that, right?
>>25772909[x]Seconding that whatever we ask, we smoke while doing it.>>25773128
>>25773109this. So much this. Family heirloom my ass.
>>25773105People tried to act like they were MIDORI BIG FUCKING HERO instead of Midori, slightly skittish magical girl with powers of illusion and misdirection
>>25773156No, no we didnt.
>>25773167Decu confirmed in a post thread Q&A that it IS a heirloom.
>>25773184Oh well, we'll probably see it when we get QB's infodump.
>>25773204Doesn't mean she's never used it...
>>25773219how did I evenwhatThat should be for >>25773203, obviously
I find it suspicious how Noriko got knocked down both times someone left the suite. Was she trying to listen in or just being Spaghetti-tan?Should tone down on my shadowruns, but it's not that easy..
>>25773105We went full retard. After being careful throughout the entire episode, taking the extra effort to do everything right, some anons decided to shit all over the work of the previous threads and decided to charge into a fully-powered Ribbon-Homu's shadow army of familiars. Instead of letting the Armoured-Homu be the tank as she was best suited for, they thought Midori going full Kharn was a good idea. Failure can be fun, but not when it's the result if the character going full retard in a manner similar to movie characters that have moments of supreme incompetence even after an entire film of them being shown as competent and using their head.
>>25773259I must have missed that thread. Which may or may not be a good thing as it sounds like the sort of shit that would have me frothing at the mouth.
>>25773258Bit of both probably.
>>25773259To be fair, I think some players were still riding the high off of the success we actually had in yelling down Kharn.
>>25773259I didn't vote for the charge option personaly, but I can understand why people did given how well things had gone up to that point. They let success go to their head and we're pumped up.
>>25773288If you missed threads in the Midori arc of Siberia, I say go back and re-read them, they're pretty awesome.
>>25773258I think it was very in character to be fed up with Kharn and to bitchslap her and a good idea.Telling Ribbonhomu to get fucked instead of using diplomacyskills and Midohugs which carried us pretty much through the entire barrier was batshit retarded though, and everyone who voted for "Get fucked" should feel bad for voting for that shit.
>>25773298I still think Decu should have curb stomped us for yelling Kharn downShould never have worked
>>25773307Constantly awesome quest, but Thread 34 and Midori's arc have been the high points of the quest for me so far.
>>25773346That was a moment of HUE that backfired, yeah.Random thought: I wonder who came back from Witching out first: Kharn or Kazumi?
>>25773353Normally, no.But threatening to call Weakass Faggot infront of her face must have done the trick.
>>25773353I think what really made the difference in talking her down was not yelling or bitchslapping her, but telling her that she is just a pawn and it was always only about Murderface.
>>25773353I thought it was good. Kharn went in expecting a fight to the death with a monstrous & barely-sane Murderface, and instead got confronted by the hard truth about how stupid she was acting and how out-of-date her "honorable death" mindset was. Though to be honest, I'm unsure why people chose the "Get fucked" option when every success Midori had in the barrier was some variation of running away, hiding, or using diplomancy.
>>25773381The power of the Derp is strong.
>>25773372That wasn't hueThat was sheer willful retardation that lead to the end it deservedOnly because Deculture is so forgiving did we not totally bad end the world is now doomed good job fuckface
>>25773381Like the bringing of QB into timestop...Aye yai....
>>25773353Kharn has surprisingly low self-esteem, and getting chewed out like we chewed her out probably invoked Malal and her dad, who she feels as a constant disappointment to.We got her in the feels, which is her major weakpoint.
>>25773393To be fair, while it was obviously a bad idea, nobody had a clue it would go THAT badly.
>>25773400In their defense, it's not like we can just blow off Kyuubey anymore. I admit that it's a pretty flimsy defense though.I wasn't there during the Midori arc. Started postinghere just after Chiaki makes it back to Mitakihara.
Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb
>>25773400People didThat's why they said "DON'T DO THIS FUCKWITS"Sadly retards won the day and we got the result we did
>>25773478I believe that was a miscount and it was the reason why Decu instituted the voting system we use now.
>>25773478Thankfully it was a bad count...
>>25773492Actually it wasn't a miscount unless you counted the 20 minute ruleThe miscount which DID get the rules was bringing Kyuubey into timestop which literally less than half the votes were for
>>25773353Kharn was literally making an in-universe HUEHUEHUE choice of her own, one which could very well prove fatal to the woman Midori loved and her wish to get everyone out alive. And Midori had dealt with enough BS in that barrier + Kharn not being a good idea to directly attack, that just getting fed up with her and furiously refuting her stupidity/appealing to whatever was left of her tiny heart and brain wasn't actually too horrible of an idea. We didn't have a whole lot to lose at that point since things were already spiraling into having to fight her.
>>25773400>nobody had a clue it would go THAT badlyI- how.. what? Are you one of those people who need a fucking reminder in form of a helpful image that putting your hand in a blender is a bad idea?
>>25773501It was a miscount even without it. Bringing QB into timestop only got 9 or 10 votes total - explaining normally had as many votes before that was even suggested, and well into the double digits total.
>>25773516Fun fact: There is a Swedish chainsaw company which, as the result of a lawsuit following a drunken dare, must carry the warning "DANGER: do not attempt to stop blades with your genitals" on all it's products.
>>25773516To be fair, even as bad as it went, we probably could have salvaged the situation with some quick-thinking.I liked the "Shoot Kyubey" idea, myself.
>>25773516See, this is why we have to have reminders, and forceful ones, every few threads. Because of either people who are new, or because some people really do forget important details like this.
>>25773534>>25773534>SwedenSweden is a proper example what happens if you have years and years of liberals in positions of power.I don`t want to sound like /pol/ but jesus christ, Sweden even makes Germany look bad.
>>25772987 >>25773000"What is this, a bull rush?" Ruri blinks at you, before giggling awkwardly and walking towards the couch. "Kidding, kidding. Yes, I know why you're asking them. Just...just let me get all my thoughts in order, okay?"Fine. You can wait. ...Why'd she take so long in the bathroom, anyway?"Panic attack. I get them sometime when stuff like that springs up from out of nowhere." Ruri frowns, and sticks her tongue out at you. "What? It's common enough for idols. High-stress job like this, even anyone'd get high-strung. Even you, probably."...Nah. You can't imagine that happening. The idol thing, anyway. But the panic attacks? Maybe. You'd be the first alcoholic idol in the world. You don't say this, however.In any case, you cross your arms and listen as the idol gives you the answers you need.The Tojo Group, as it seems, is currently in the business of finding more...legitimate streams of revenue, or what Kyuubey would have called it, anyway. They've created their own production company, Tojo Productions, and they've been signing idols by attracting them with highly-lucrative contracts and highly-publicized negotiations. The idols who would sign would become the popular thing for a while, before suddenly and suspiciously getting married off, and then simply fading into obscurity. ...A few have been found dead, either by drug overdose or by mysterious circumstances. Ruri did admit that not all of Tojo Production idols befall this fate, but it's too suspicious not to take note of.The twenty-four hour webcast isn't really twenty-four hours, as exemplified by how you're currently not broadcasting at the moment. There are periodical commercial breaks, but the concert itself will be webcast in full.[1/2]
>>25773541How about a big "RETARDED IDEAS NOT WELCOME, FUCK OF BACK TO /B/ WITH STUPID SHIT" post every thread? Would that do?
>>25773553As for the clout that she used to get you specifically? "I don't really know about clout, but since I did want to meet you, I tried it anyway. I did submit my request to Kyuubey-san's mail personally, but..." Ruri scratches her cheek with a perfectly-manicured index finger. "I do remember Producer-san getting Kyuubey-san on the phone and talking about a cut of the ticket sales? Something like that."Well. There you have it. Fucking mutant cat. What about the performing thing? You're not a part of the all-dancing, all-singing crap of the world. Has she heard what your voice sounds like? You're not getting on that stage--"Oh, you are! But you'll be performing as Murder Mayumi, it'll be perfect!" Ruri grins at this, her strangely-glowing eyes twinkling and sparkling. "Oh, and don't worry about your sucky voice, there's always lip-synching! I do that when I've got a sore throat!"...Right. You forgot about that. Sucky voice, indeed.You'll let your ego soak that bruise. What about her itinerary for today? What's she got lined up?"Well, um. Let's see..." The super idol takes out her phone, and begins to flip through it. "I've got a pool wear gravure photoshoot in thirty minutes or so, that's until after lunch, and then a live televised interview with a news show...three radio interviews after that, and then dress rehearsal at the stadium until six. After that, I'm yours!" She winks at you. "You can take me out on a date then, Chiaki-chan!"Yeah. Right. Whatever."Wah, so cold! You cut to the quick, Chiaki-chan!"It's then that Deepthroat sidles back into the room, camera held up. "U-um, Ruri-sama? We have to go back online in two minutes. You...you told me to tell you in advance, but you were busy talking to Miss Matsuda..."[2/3]
>>25773534Pics?>>25773516>>25773541I admit, I was one of those people. Little details fall through the cracks at times.>>25773560Nein. Reminding people of important details during critical moments would be good enough.
>>25773553>before suddenly and suspiciously getting married off, and then simply fading into obscurityoh boy
>>25773551True, but my point is that there are people out there who need to be warned that wedging your nuts in to a chansaw is a bad idea. I don't care how drunk you are, that should never look like a good idea.
>>25773566"Ah, right! Thank you, Noriko-chan!" Ruri skips over to the beleaguered Deepthroat, and pats her hair. "Hee! Greasy and sweaty as always! You should take better care of your hair!" It's then that she looks around. "Eh? Where's Sayaka-chan?""I...I'll try, Ruri-sama...a-and she told me she just needed some air, she'll be back in a little bit..."What do you do, now? Looks like you'll have to start acting again.
>>25773579/cover sayaka's disappearance.*dust off palms*"Well, thats one fan taken care of."
>>25773551That's not just Sweden, America has the infamous cat in microwave story, or hot coffee is actually hot. Pretty sure they did it before Sweden too.
>>25773566Back on with only 30 minutes until a photo-shoot? Man, idols sure are industrious.
>>25773579[x] Go outside yourself. Make a route around the hotel and check how everything is set upActing is for idols. We have work to do. She'll have her own things to do anyway.
>>25773579[x] Act like the emotionless, uncaring Magical Girl you always dreamed you'd become. Maybe read some MMxMM and provide criticism and commentary.
>>25773000>>25773553I always imagined Homu`s "time to get shit done"-voice like Senjougahara`s from Bakemonogatari. And then I found out that it was actually the same VA who voiced Senjougahara and Homu.
>>25773579[X] she better not expect us to wear a swimsuit. send Sayaka a message that the webcast will be resuming shortly.better start acting like our self again.
>>25773579[x] Sit down and shut up, making sure to look as surly as possible and placing yourself far enough away from Ruri that she has to get up and move to fit both of you in the shot.
>>25773579[x] "Sayaka is doing a quick patrol; can't be too careful when Magical Girls are involved. She'll be back in a moment."And do another Callidus sweep; now that we know the Tojo Group is using one, and she just used her powers downstairs, we should do another sweep in case she's hiding around using illusions.
>>25773579Mention that we were impressed with how quickly and completely she destroyed Sayaka's image of herWe didn't take ten minutes to get up there and she was already disillusionedMention that maybe she should try being herself around her and that if she hasn't figured it out already she is one of ours and our right hand muderhobo
>>25773579Sayaka is having boy trouble
>>25773630More like girl AND boy trouble, from how Ruri bummed her out.

>>25773579>[X] Act like the emotionless, uncaring Magical Girl you always dreamed you'd become. Maybe read some MMxMM and provide criticism and commentary[X] "Sayaka went out for a breather. She'll be back in a bit."
>>25773553>The Tojo Group, as it seems, is currently in the business of finding more...legitimate streams of revenue, or what Kyuubey would have called it, anyway. They've created their own production company, Tojo Productions, and they've been signing idols by attracting them with highly-lucrative contracts and highly-publicized negotiationsThis is sounding a lot like what Kilgore did. Except with mind control gantlets.>>25773579WE GOT MOVIE SIGN!>[x]Sit down and pic up a book.Do we still have the MMxMM book? I thought Souji took that away when we had amnesia.
>>25773579[x] Text Sayaka a message to come back, do another Callidus sweep."Sayaka is doing a quick patrol; can't be too careful when Magical Girls are involved. She'll be back in a moment."
>>25773579Y'know what? Let's play this up. For enormous shits and giggles.Let's act like the cold, possessive dominatrix everyone thinks we are.And we get to see the look on the faces of everyone who actually knows us.
>>25773579[x]"Need any help changing for your photoshoot?" *light cigarette*
>>25773644>Given how flamingly gay everyone involved is, that phrase could be taken odd places.
>>25773685Like our entire officio watching in the break room and squealing over how cool we look next to Ruri-sama?I like this idea
>>25773579[x] Just be yourself.-[x] With an extra coating of abstinent ex-alcoholic grumpyness[x]Hairflip for the cam.People probably will still complain that we got MurderMayumis hairlength wrong.
>>25773702Not to mention whenever Midori gets a break during her mission to check her smart phone."S-sempai.. Ah..."
>>25773685This seems entertaining enough.
>>25773630>>25773644Well lets respect sayaka's privacy and not out her.Besides, this is still some part conjecture, the other part meta knowledge.
>>25773685If it involves all kinds of vaguely suggestive actions...Yeah, I vote for this.Let's milk it for all its' worth.
>>25773721>Well lets respect sayaka's privacy and not out her.>Outing her>As being heterosexual>(or bi, but w/e)What a magical world we live in.
>>25773725And lots of hair flicks.
I'm down for this
>>25773721Her privacy isn't important since she is on a job And Ruri needs to know she can trust her if we are busy
>>25773736There has long been speculation in this quest that Mami's deep, dark secret is that she is actually straight.
>>25773702>>25773685More like QB is watching us every moment of the webcast. This is an enormous PR disaster in the making, hanging over his head like a Sword of Damocles.
>>25773685You know, why the fuck not. Kyuubei will only have himself to blame if we do something bad (as long as it's not 'flashy use of magic').
>>25773685I'm down for this
>>25773708I don't think Murder Mayumi had a ponytail either. Some people watching the webcast might be wondering why the hairstyle is different.
>>25773685>Awkward social ex-alcoholic misfit Chiaki "I puked onto Mumi`s Mammies" Matsuda>ActingYeah, no.
>>25773685Is this going to involve the hat?This better involve the hat.
>>25773579Smoke a cigarette, smoke multiple cigarettes. If questioned claim it is an essential component of the character we play.
>>25773685Needs more blue roses.With the thorns.
>>25773796The Hat wasn't MM sadlyNice idea though
>>25773805AND WE HAVE A BOUQUET IN OUR INVENTORY
>>25773788undo the 'tail?
>>25773685Hmmm. Shame it's too late to veto this. There is no possible way this is going to work.
>>25773805We have a shield/inventory full of the things.
>>25773813But just seeing her try would be funny.
It's not like we'd have to do much acting anyway. Chiaki already has basically two expressions, bored and bored/annoyed, so between that and our taciturn personality and potential threats of kneecapping, I have a feeling some people watching might already mistake us for a cold dominatrix if just from matching how we act now to how our character acts. Ruri even said as much.
>Chiaki on stage in front of millions of people.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwiuX2OAvJg
>>25773968Kyoko seems to be the only one enjoying herself.
>>25773968....I can see it.
A thread or two ago Ruri went on for like 3 Decu posts about how dating Magical Girls are bad and she said everything to Iori to protect her. She made it very clear that dating Magical Girls is the worst evil for an idol.>"You can take me out on a date then, Chiaki-chan!"Fuck Idols. I, personally, hate this job, because I already didn't like Iori, and this idol is even worse.
>>25774046she went back to trying to get a rise out of us so she can compose a better song.
>>25774046I think there's probably a difference in connotation between 'dating' and 'going on a date'.
>>25774046>what is teasingC'mon, Anon, it's like you've never hanged out with girls.
>>25774068This. It's a gorls hanging out date. Not a get in her panties date.
>>25774046She certainly is less annoying then Iori but still.. Why do we have to deal with idols again? Fucking Idols are annoying by default.
>>25774096Because we pick the jobs that involve them.
>>25774096Because it's our job and we picked it.Shut your bitching, it's getting to be as annoying as dealing with the chucklefucks.
>>25774096I feel like we are defending the bad guy, from other bad guys, and fate has cast us, Blueberry, and Noriko in the middle of the evil convention. Man the new diplomatic Chiaki is difficult to work with. I miss old Murderface, there would be enough kneecaps shot out for everyone.
>>25774134>there would be enough kneecaps shot out for everyone.Thats it!We shall build a throne of kneecaps!
>>25774134>I feel like we are defending the bad guy, from other bad guys,Welcome to noir.
>>25774143Thanks, goddammit.I need to clean my screen.I also totally support this suggestion.
>>25774143But anon, when we shoot people in the kneecaps, the kneecaps explode.We'll end up with a throne of shins.SHINS FOR THE SHIN THRONE.
>>25774143I can back this.And think it would be dramatically more comfortable than skulls.
>>25774156We shall have to shoot just over or under the kneecaps then so that they pop off.
Shall we begin the summoning?Nyan Nyan
>>25774186>>25774195Just...why do you even bother?
Whoa there, Decu is probably just writing really long posts.
>>25774244>>25774248goddamnit, why can't you speds auto update the thread?
>>25774240>>25774244>>25774245>>25774248I'm seeing double

>>25774252I did auto update it, and I even clicked update just before I posted!
>>25774267>>25774271and yet you tards are both atleast 10 secs after the first
>>25773601 >>25773614 >>25773618 >>25773685 >>25773708Hearing Ruri explain what's been happening with Tojo Production idols...it sounds very much like what Kilgore's been doing. But unlike the musclebound goon that you and Tiny Pete obliterated, this was a much more...insiduous way of doing it. It's not as if they forced the idols, it sounds like - just tricked them into it with the promise of money and fame and a soft life. Not that it makes it any better, of course.Fucking yaks. Yes, sure, they pay good money, and they often hire girls out for more exciting assignments - but even Kyuubey's told you that it won't be long until the Officio stop accepting their job requests. Something about it not paying off as well as it should, or it being too much bad PR than it's worth.Anyway, everything that Ruri's told you more or less seems to make sense. You're still on your guard, of course, especially with the knowledge that enemy Magical Girls are going to be involved on this op - but at least you're not as on guard against your client, now. You can breathe a bit easier knowing that your client isn't about to go crazy and kill you in your sleep, or something.As Ruri begins to touch up her makeup in front of a rather heavy-looking mirror Deepthroat is holding up with both hands - more idol-stuff, apparently - it's here that you take the opportunity to call Sayaka. The webcast's about to come on again, and it wouldn't look good without her."Yeah, yeah, I'm going. I went ahead and did a Callidus check, just in case." Her voice seems to sound strained and nasal, as if she's suddenly got a cold. "Nothing here, it's clean. On my way back as we speak."[1/2]
>>25774286Right. You thank her, and shove the phone back into your inventory. Your hand comes up with...well, the hat. As if begging to be worn while you pretend to be a Magical Girl with some serious issues about personal space."Al...alright!" Deepthroat gasps as she holds up the camera again. "Webcast...c-coming online in ten! Nine..!"Ah, what the hell. You make to put it back on - it does look good on you, anyway, when--"Back now," Sayaka suddenly bursts into the room, the door slamming back. It's with a start that you shove the hat back into your inventory, turning to greet the Eversor. Her eyes are slightly red, but she seems fine for now. She brushes some of her bangs from her face. "Did I make it? Are we still good?" You flash her a thumbs up. "How do I look, Murderface?"...Decent, you say to her after a moment. Totally not like she's been crying or anything."Thanks." She pats her cheeks with both hands, as if to wake herself up. A resigned, yet determined look on her face as she does so. "This is the worst assignment I've ever been on, but I'm not a quitter. Let's get this shit over with.""Five! Four!"If you didn't hate her, you'd have almost commended her for her resilience."Yeah, yeah. Shut up and get ready to act like you usually do, Murderface."Sure."...Two! One!" And with that, the entire world is watching you again. Ruri loudly and cheerfully greeting the audience, before dragging both you and Sayaka into frame, hugging you and calling you her best friends forever. Drink it up, Kyuubey, you bastard mutant cat. You give her a shove afterwards, before pushing the camera away from you and then stalking off-camera with a growl. Just like how Murder Mayumi would've done. This got you the usual squealing praises from Ruri, which you tried not to feel too good about. You're just...acting how you would act. Like yourself. Like...Christ. Maybe...maybe Midori had you pegged after all.You'd have laughed if it weren't so depressing.
>>25774096Less annoying than Iori? Iori was a jerky tsundere rich bitch at first, but mellowed out really fast once we proved our worth, and pretty much has been a decent friend since minus her schoolgirl crush that we end up shitting on repeatedly.Ruri, on the other hand, is dangerous in various ways, knows way too much, and seems to like teasing and playing with us at random, possibly for her own amusement. Iori was positively saintly compared to what this one may put us through.
>>25774286>Her voice seems to sound strained and nasal, as if she's suddenly got a cold.B-Blueberry...
>>25774303And that's that for this thread! MGNQ resumes this Friday!No writeups for today, questions answered before we go to autosage!
>>25774303Chiaki model actor! Wooo!
>>25774322>2 empty dayspls
>>25774322Bu-But decu you said you'll run extra long today~T-Thanks for running
>>25774286>but even Kyuubey's told you that it won't be long until the Officio stop accepting their job requestsYou've got to be a real bunch of scumbags to make even the mutant cat and an organization based on assassinations, purges, kidnappings, and outright destruction and looting, stop taking your jobs. At least it should be a relaxing job where we get to blow off some steam when we purge their entire organization.
>>25774322How badly can we fuck up a photoshoot, Decu?
>>25774322Thanks for the Thread!Ebook will be updated over the weekend like usual!
>>25774343To be fair, Kyuubey seems to be comparatively more principled than either the Anime or his siblings.It's somewhat refreshing, actually.
>>25774303>You're just...acting how you would act. Like yourself. Like...We really should take one or two moments where we "break character" and act like...hmm....Kumatora, or one of the energetic new girls. Just to keep up the cover of us being a cosplayer.
>>25774322Do the summonings work? What about the sad attempts at them that we can't help but to do lately?
>>25774322There is only thing I am very curious about. Did you plan to have Kyosuke as part of the security team or was that a spontaneous thing?
>>25774359And now I'm imagining a Leering, haughty Chiaki getting put into one of those pseudo-dominatirx swimsuits for the shoot.And I think I like it.
>>25774322no write ups means it's time again!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questarchive is up, have a good day gentlemen.
>>25774322Is there any hope of us acquiring a Noriko as the result of this quest? Not as a recruitment, just as a friend that we visit sometimes.The world isn't ready for magical spaghetti-tanOn top of the hilarity of having spaghetti-tan around now and again, having someone more depressing then us around really makes me feel better about our choices.
>>25774367>comparatively more principled than either the Anime or his siblings.His integrity is apparently getting him into trouble with his fellow Incubators, something about treating his Magical Girls as more than just expendable resources and getting sentimental.
Decu, will the two Ruris ever be explained?
I've been scarce the past few threads due to random illness, will resume actual content later.

>>25774322How likely is a war between QB and one or more of his brothers in the future?
>>25774404Oh my, now with extra Sonozaki.
>>25774411we don't actually have to say words for the hat to be effective.
>>25774322How likely is Chiki in a swimsuit in the upcoming photoshoot?
>>25774404I see what you did there, and I like it.
>>25774379And she can leave her hat on.
>>25774429>ruri performing>chiaki just standing on stage glaring at the crowd and cleaning weaponry>crowd loves it
>>25774322Would it be possible for us to bang Ruri and get away with it?
>>25774441Meanwhile: Blueberry suffering! Kyokbro and Green buddy cop movieing! Noriko spaghetting! It was dildos.
>>25774441And wear stockings with the mizugi.Black and white chequered stockings.
>>25774322Decu plsWhy is Kyousuke a redshirt instead of a rock and roll star?Is Blueberry going to lose it now?
Would it be smart to ask Kyouko about how this Kyousuke guy has Sayaka Hung up I mean we already probably know but its a way of letting us know in characteralsowhat time is it for you right now?
>>25774462We can probably come up with some excuse to kneecap her later on.
>Performance time>Chiaki in the backstage, watching things>Phone call "dance for me or your loved one gets It"And /tg/ ruins It by shitting on the captor and thus, killing whoever was captured.
>>25774477Not that kind of bang!
If were going for stupid sexy time Kamijou Kyousuke not only will it be stupid but also umproffessional as hell.
>>25774486Make the loved one Mami, and /tg/ will do the fucking 23 Skidoo on stage to save her.
>>25774494...what? I can't see anyone at all who's advocating or even suggested that.Are you high?
>>25774421>>25774439>Intentionally chose a different school of schoolgirl outfit than Sonozaki's.>But there was going to be another Higurashi reference later anyway so oh well!
>>25774494Are you high?
>>25774486>>25774505we won't be told who the loved one is until after /tg/ finishes telling the captors to get fucked, then we find out Mami is dead
>>25774541It doesn't look different to me. Looks like you just put a sweater vest over it.
>>25774543Most of /tg/ should remember our last loved one to be threatened was Mami, and she's literally the loved one Chiaki will randomly think about the most. I think most shadowruns will assume it's her and tread very lightly.
>>25774543Or even worse, the loved one was the Kong distillery. The BBEG rigged it to explode.

>>25774633She totally would let us get in her pants, Decu's just surprised someone would ask. Especially when we have more important ladies in our life right now

>>25774822Can you imagine what her witch barrier would be like?
>>25774850Like Charlotte's but with Italian food.
Now with added WW2 flavour
>>25774618So we can really have our own spaghetti-tan to look after and feel sorry for while realizing she is amazingly pathetic to make US feel pity?We can teach her how to drink and ruin her voice with smokes and how to shoot so people will leave her alone?Possibly after like five mind wipes to get her a bit less timid

>>25775013So, what, instead of contracting her we just adopt her or something?
>>25775013More of a case of "It was a good idea at the time".>>25775026Nyet. We could always refer her to Iori or Garcia. Anyone but Chiaki.
>>25774980Well, you can certainly make her a frequent contact and friend!
>>25775026What an amazing amount of awkward and spaghetti that would be.
>>25775052DecuHey, DecuWhat happened to Charlotte? Did she get nuked or what?
>>25775052Will she learn to accept headpats?
>>25775069I would presume communication would decrease under the effect of tobacco and alcohol to the point where it hits a stack overflow and makes the pair of them the most confident and outgoing people ever.
>>25775080That'll be revealed in a Malal-centric flashback!
>>25775090You know... it might be a good idea to have a non-MG for a warmaster aid...
>>25775114I hope she survives.
>>25775123What would Midori say to this?Also if shes comfortable serving Ruri, I'd rather not steal her away.
>>25775090Or they just pass out in the corner covered in piss and vomit.
>>25774850The Witch of Spaghetti. Her nature is bashful. She blames the world for her shortcomings and lashes out at any who enter her barrier. She packages her victims in boxes, where they suffer alone as she suffered.
>>25775114Malal flashback when? We still have those other stories from when we picked Kharn route.
>>257750261) We could always.. Oh, I don`t know, leave her the fuck alone, since Ruri seems to be doing exactly the same thing we want to do: Taking care of her. 2) Just befriend her and stay friends, keep the Meguca shit out of her reach.3) Introduce her to Mami, see if Mami will feel the urge to dot on Noriko and turn her into decent person as she did with us.
>>25775123Considering that the current theme is that "mixing MGs and normals is bad", this is probably a bad idea.
>>25775292NOMAMI MINENO ONE TOUCH PANCAKE MAKER
>>25775309"...Is that all I am to you, Chiaki-san? Just, a walking pancake meguca?"
>>25775346"Given that you haven't done anything significant other than that since the quest started; yes. Yes you are."
>>25775384"But I was your first golden weapon user"
>>25775309Can`t let you do that, dave. Its Everyone`s Mami. Part of what makes MGNQ-Mami so great is that she makes you feell like you are a good human being. Monopolizing Mami, would be like monopolizing the Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa or Ghandi. It would be a crime. I believe Chiaki cares for Mami, but I also believe that Chiaki isn`t selfish enough to do something like that, nor does she see Mami that way. Mumi is basically our Mum, Dad and Big Sister in one and we wouldn`t want to deprive some unfortunate girl the same thing, that Mumi is to us.
