You squint down from your place at the bleachers, and wonder just how easy it is to shoot your main objective from your current position. Even from this distance, picking out Kirishima Ruri is easy - none of the other slightly-blurry blobs sported quite the mane of brilliant blue-green hair. It'd be an easy affair, really, to put a round in between those cute twintails."Murderface?" Kyoko's voice crackles slightly, bringing you back from your contemplation of cathartic screeching idol murder. "Murderface, ya still there? Midorin, check if the call's dropped or anythin'--"You tell her that you're still on the line. Yes, you know about idols, even if you wish you didn't. So far, though, it doesn't look like any of them have any designs on the blue-haired Eversor, although there was a bit of fawning over Sayaka's abs.
>>25907991"Huh? Oh, yeah! Saw that in the webcast, too. Haha, you just made Midorin lose two thousand yen, she bet that you'd join in and wear a swimsuit too."What? No. You're not...you may have amnesia, but you're not into that kind of thing. How'd she even arrive at that conclusion anyway?You hear an embarrassed mumbling in the background. "Ah, Midorin says she thought you'd be professional enough to play along, ahahaha!"...No. You're professional, but not that professional. You're not in the business of squeezing into something that barely even covers everything supposed to be covered.More mumbling, but this time panicked."Ah, she ain't angry, relax." Kyoko snickers. "Anyway, you're sure of that, huh? None of those sneaky idols tryin' to catch her attention or anything?"No. None of them. At least, that's what you think."Haah. Well, that's a relief." The Eversor heaves a sigh. "Sometimes I just get worried, you know?"Yeah....Should you tell Kyoko about Kyosuke?Tell her.Don't tell her.
>>25907998[x]Hell no. If anything, we'll wait for a good chance to grill Sayaka about it later. And then after getting the full side of the story, we'll but our noses in.
>>25907998[x]Tell her.Fair warning and all.
>>25907998Nnnnghn, wait until she's off-duty or come clean?Eh, might as well trust her to not be a moron.[x]Tell her.
EARLY MGNQ?WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO DECU?>>25907998>[x]Don't tell her.Shes on her own mission and needs her own head in the game. Kyoko will fret, worry and make rookie mistakes.We tell sayaka we didn't tell Kyoko. It's up to her to tell her herself.
>>25907998>Don't tell her.We don't know if this is a problem yet. Telling her might MAKE it a problem.Lets just play it cool and keep an eye on the situation. No sense in ratting out Sayaka for something we're not even sure she did.
>>25907998Tell her. No reason to keep it to yourself after all. Don't you trust her?
>>25907998[X] Don't tell herIt isn't our place and this isn't the timeAfterwards if they haven't sorted it out then maybe we can ruin their paradise
>>25907998[X] Tell her.This is seriously affecting Sakaya, and if there's anyone we can trust with this info its Kyoko. While she's usually crap at keeping secrets, if she knows about Kyosuke and Sakaya's past she'll know that its serious enough to keep quiet about.Just MAKE SURE SAYAKA ISN'T EAVESDROPPING WHEN YOU TELL HER.
>>25908040Anon, don't forget the [x].
>>25907998[X] Tell herWe can trust Kyoko, and Sakaya's usually stone-cold. If this is causing her to actually cry then we need to know if it'll affect her performance.Especially if Kyosuke's the leak.
>>25908043Telling Kyouko means that we don't trust Sayaka, though. And I mean, we may hate each other, but we also grudgingly respect her, and going behind her back to rat her out for somewhere where she may not even be doing anything wrong, is kind of dickish.
>>25908040We're not ratting her out when we're asking her closest love one about a potentially delicate situation.If Kyosuke's the leak and Sakaya has problems because of it...
>>25908017This.>but our noses inIF we ever do.
>>25907998>[X]Don't tell her.Kyoko is on her own mission and doesn't need to be distracted, and she can't really help right now anyway due to the aforementioned mission.Furthermore, if Sayaka doesn't end up going full retard then telling Kyoko now could just turn a non-issue into a big goddamn issue.
>>25908061I get how it means that we don't trust her, but it also means we're worried about her mental well-being.Remember, SAKAYA KILLS HERSELF IN CANON BECAUSE OF THIS FUCKER. And she's ACTUALLY CRYING OVER IT.
>>25908061But isn't it better to have it out in the open?/amnesia
>>25908061No it doesn't. It's not like we're telling her 'omg Sayaka is totally gonna fuq a dude', letting Kyouko know that she met someone from her past and seems to be in a bit of a funk makes perfect sense.
>>25908061"Hey Kyoko, this guy from Sakaya's past showed up. Should I be worried yes/no?"
Deleted my post because I changed my mind.>>25907998[x] Tell her that he's here, but NOTHING ELSE.Hao 2 handle pls Kyokobro?>>25908061We're not ratting her out, we're asking for input.
>>25907998[X] Tell her
>>25908074>>25908075>>25908076..Wouldn't it make more sense to talk to SAYAKA about her problem, as opposed to going behind her back to her girlfriend? Because we know so little about the situation, getting Kyouko tangled up in it may do more harm than good. And it'll make Sayaka trust US less, too.
[x]Tell her.As if we care about what Sayaka thinks of us for meddlingKyouko deserves to know, and hopefully we'll get instant-gratification in the form of what the fuck happened.
I miss this artist's draw threads. Some of the random requests turned out really cute.
>>25908042>This>early MGNQMy little fa/tg/uy can't be this new.[X] Ask her. "Does the name Kyosuke Kamijou ring a bell?"
>>25908097Sayaka was overly emotional when we spoke to her about it.Granted that was immediately after she became aware of his presence, AND while we had the DEagle out, so maybe she'll be more forthcoming if we ask again.
>>25908097Sakaya is pretty obviously emotionally vulnerable right now. If we bring it up to her face we could touch on emotional scars she'd rather keep hidden. Kyoko on the other hand knows enough to give us advice on what to do and how bad this could get.
>>25908098>As if we care about what Sayaka thinks of us for meddlingChiaki does, now, dammit.She even comforted her over ruining the image of her idol and saying she's there if she wanted to talk about Kyosuke.
>>25908074In canon she also wasn't in a steady relationship with another girl and she didn't have any other aimsThis Sayaka deserves our trust as far as this goes, if it doesn't come out down the line then we can tell KyoukoTelling her now just leads to trouble because both are busy with their respective missions and it could cause a lot of relationship trouble not to mention lose what respect Sayaka has for us professionally
>>25907998>Don't tell her.Seriously, I can't see anything good coming out of telling her, especially if she's on her way to do her mission
>>25908071But this is Kyosuke we're talking about, the reason Sayaka goes full retard to begin with. We shouldn't rat her out, but we need to know if this is something serious.
>>25908130I just don't see how telling Kyoko that this dude Sakaya seems to know will cause problems, especially if we make it clear that Kyoko shouldn't come here just because of him.
>>25908103From twitter:>Thread in an hour36 minutes later, thread.Decu NEVER starts before the hour is up.
[x]Don't tell her.Look, Sayaka made her wish so she could tap that. Her wish was fueled by a pubescent craving for moody artist booty. Whatever lust was there has been left behind by the emotional pain and betrayal. We can trust blueberry not to do anything too dumb. And it's none of Kyoko's business, anyway. Let Sayaka tell her.
>>25908144>I just don't see how telling Kyoko that this dude Sakaya seems to know is here will cause problemsHerp derpNot saying he'll cause problems, just left out a word
>>25908097And you expect us to do the rational thing in a spur of the moment decision?
I'm confused.What do we have to gain from not telling kyoko?All that happens is that we're left even more in the dark and then everyone complains when get blindsided later.
>>25907998[X] Tell herThere really isn't any downsides if we're DISCREET about it and TELL KYOKO TO NOT MAKE A FUSS
>>25907998>[x]Tell her.but try to not phrase it like they are having sex on stage...
>>25908158We prevent Kyoko from spazzing out. Which probably won't happen anyway.
>>25907998>[x]Don't tell her.Kyoko's got enough to worry about at the moment.
>>25907998>[x]Don't tell her.Trust Sayaka to tell kyoko herself and to take care of herself.If shes needs support, we're here for her but she does not need us meddling, yet.
>>25907998>>Kyoko calling Midori "Midorin". I know this has been going on for a while but it gets me every time. [X] There might be something but it's not my place to tell. I'll have Sayaka call you later, even if I have to order her to.
>>25908158I have no fucking idea.Apparantly people think that we're 'ratting' Sakaya out for meeting someone. Or that Kyoko will spazz out about it, which she's more than capable of NOT doing.
>>25907998>[x]Don't tell her.
>>25908158Kyoko is on her own mission, maybe running into MGs too.She'll be distracted and with Midorin. I'd not endanger the two.
>>25907998>[x]Don't tell her.Don't think she needs more shit to worry about on her mission.
>>25907998[X] Don't tell her.This is Sayakas issue, if she wants Kyoko to know she can tell her herself sometime when they're not both on missions.Meddling too much is bad.
>>25908191>>25908186I don't think Kyoko's amateur enough to be distracted by this, especially if we assure her we'll keep an eye on things for her.
Wow, first time I've hit the start of a thread in a while. I guess being sick off work has it's benefits.[X]Tell her.But try to be discreet about it. Just ask if there's anyone in Sayaka's past with that name.
>>25908181>>25908187You couldn't even take a minute to dress up your samefag.
For Pinky's sake, they aren't fucking. Kyosuke isn't about to NTR Sayaka and Kyouko isn't even assuming Sayaka likes dicks. We aren't saying "hey, some guy is stealing your qt 3.14," we're just letting her know some guy she seems to have a history with is here and wat do?...right, Decu?
>>25908214I don't think one person can post twice that quickly, man.
>>25908214Slow down on the paranoia there buddy.
>>25908158Kyouko has pretty much just spent a few minutes telling us how jealous she'd be if any of the idols hit on Sayaka, so it's hilarious timing if we're going to tell her that her girlfriend's old flame just showed up. She may not spazz out, but if she's not entirely all that confident(which is natural for young ladies in love) it could distract her during their own.
>>25907998>[x] Tell her...that there's an old friend of Sayaka's in the bodyguard detailSeriously, what do we have to go on that there was anything more than friendship between them aside from metagaming?
>>25908233Cool down is 30 seconds, shows up as 1 minute's difference
>>25907998[x]Don't tell her.
Rolled 6, 16 = 22>>25907998[X]Tell her.
>>25908165>>25908175The line of thinking I was on.>>25908186Alright this is what I was looking for, Kyoko has been proven to let her heart mess with what her head should be doing [see: that one time she rushed to back us up during the kilgore fight]This is probably why Deculture consolidated all the asking of who Kyousuke was from last thread to[x]Tell Her [x]Don't TellThe choice is really letting Kyouko being aware of Kyousuke's presence in the perimeter>>25908205then again, this guy brings up a good point.>>25908238...but so does heI wonder how this will turn out, either way.
>>25908244Uh, because Spaghetti-tan saw them talking in a hallway in an emotional, "lovers who had a spat" kind of way and assumed they were married?
>>25908238>What is a joke
>>25908252I generally look at the post numbers. A difference in single-digits usually isn't samefag, especially in a high-traffic quest thread like this.
>>25908275Because Spaghetti tan is an expert on relationships.
>>25908279well no, a high traffic quest would be more likely to have a small difference in post numbers, because this is a slow time on a slow board, and this quest is probably one of the only threads that is actually moving.
>>25908288It's still worth examining. We did see Sayaka react weirdly before to Kyousuke, too, and "acting weird about someone" often means "old flame" in the great cliche tradition.
>>25908276>Jealous people sometimes disguise their jealousy as jokes,
>>25907998[X]Tell her.Just fucking tell her, Kyoko has a steady head on her shoulders, she won't freak out too much, and her advice on the situation would be very helpful.
>>25908279/tg/ is a relatively slow board compared to others.
>>25908310>Kyoko is super serious and isn't constantly making jokes
>>25908323>Saying jokes are always just jokes and never ever carry hints of internal feelings
>>25908312>Kyoko has a steady head on her shoulders,No not really.She counts on her heart more. Like the killing of the mad kid on the search and rescue mission instead of bringing in him for the bounty.
>>25908338Do you really think Kyoko honestly believes that Sakaya will be seduced by some idol?
>>25908338>Implying Decu hasn't been playing with our rampant paranoia and overthinking this entire arc.Our Shadowrus will only lead to despair
>>25908173what's with sticking an 'n' at the end of names? Is it a moonspeak term of endearment or something?
>>25908356Sounds like someone's never been in a relationship before.
>>25908363Actually I think it's the ~rin part.
>>25908388Nah, they do that with all sorts of names ending with "i".
>>25907998[X] Tell her! It'll hurt her more in both the short and long runs if we don't! Especially since Sayaka will probably be letting her know about him. They are lovers, after all!
>>25908363One of many cutesy japanese diminutive terms of endearment, like -chan.
>>25908420Ask her if she knows about him before telling her.[X] Tell her
>>25908420I actually kinda prefer it to honorific-roulette personally.
>>25908399I haven't seen it applied to names ending with 'i' syllables other than 'ri', but I HAVE seen 'rin' added to the ends of other names.Yukari and Yuuka from Touhou are an example; they're often called Yukarin and Yuukarin, respectively. Which confuses a lot of people due to the similarity in spelling and pronunciation.I've also seen 'rin' added to names already ending in 'rin'. Another Touhou example; Orin -> Orinrin.
>>25908363It's a cutesy nick form. As far as I know, it's only done with names ending in i.Midorin, Kagamin, Kasumin~
Noir Ilya, when?
I really wonder what those people who where magically compelled to come to the church felt like?"Oh god! I got something in the oven! My house is going to burn down! Why am I here? Why am I listening to his guy talk nonsense!"
>>25908406WHY was my first thought looking at that of this? WHY.
>>25908435>honorific rouletteNow now Anon-sama-kun, only low-quality fansubbers abuse honorifics-tan-sensei.
>>25908439I know I've heard "Kagamin", "Sagamin", and "Hibikin" before, just off the top of my head. Though you are right in that adding "-rin" is also common.
>>25908443>implying FKL isn't already NoirYou haven't been keeping up with the latest chapters, have you?
>>25908457Would these be the same low-quality fansubbers who shit German all over Girls und Panzer because... reasons?

>>25908465How about this?
>>25908481But Aryan sub best sub.
>>25908481It's not even *good* German. I could understand (sort of) if it were good German. Or vaguely consistent. But it's seriously the equivalent of "(keikaku means plan)".
>>25908514Commie does that kind of shit occasionally.At least for GuP they did a normal sub alongside it.

ONE JOB!...what? Isn't that part of the ritual?
>>25908022 >>25908043 >>25908045 >>25908054You decide to tell Kyoko about Kyosuke. While it doesn't feel right to meddle in someone else's affairs, even if that someone is a blue-haired bitch who's made it clear time and again that she'd like nothing more than making a pincushion of your kidneys the moment she catches you unaware - it feels even less right to keep something from the red-haired Eversor that's tried her very best to be your friend, or something approaching it."Kyosuke? Kamijou Kyosuke?" Kyoko repeats after a moment, surprise evident in her voice. "What's he doing there? Giving string backup or what?"...No. Well, backup of a sort, but not the sort she's thinking about."No shit? You're telling me he's one of the security detail, too? A-and he's huge?" It's then that she guffaws. "Aw, man! Now I definitely have to drop by later! It's been years since I saw that idiot! And if he's huge, that means he took my advice and everything! I've never found anyone stupid enough to do THAT!"...What? She...Kyoko told a violinist to get huge and work as a professional meathead? What the hell is wrong with her?"Huh? Oh, no! Kyosuke-kun's a friend of mine, we go way back! Childhood buddies even!" You can hear the Eversor cheerfully reminiscing in her tone. "Wimpy little dude, limp-wristed and everything. Couldn't even take a single punch! But anyway, ah, I just helped him think hard about things, that's all. Asked him if he was happy goin' to recitals and practicin' for hours and shit, in a stuffy old concert hall." Another guffaw. "'Course that was after hearin' about him complain about how boring all of it was. Said he couldn't stand to play another bar of Vivaldi, something like that."...And that led to him being huge?[1/2]
>>25908583I... I guess it is.
>>25908568>>25908573>>25908578>>25908587.... holy shit it worked.
>>25908587"Well, probably! Last Sayaka and I saw of him he went off with his parents to America to study and all that stuff. Probably started pumpin' iron and drinkin' hamburger shakes to get huge." A snicker. "Wonder if he can take a punch now? Hahaha, now I get ta try out after so many years, awesome!"...Huh. Okay. That's...well.Wait, she's coming over here? But what about her op?"Eh, it'll just be a stop over. Sayaka wants me to bring her some clothes an' something extra. After that Midorin and I go directly to a stakeout, got a hunch some of the small fry yakuza could tell us something." It's here that she cackles. "Hahaha, Kyo-chan's gonna get a pounding! Man, maybe I should bring gloves or what? ...Nah, he can probably take one deep in the gut..."How do you react?
>>25908587Wait, what?SHIT. We've done it now. Despair incoming.

>>25908601"Alright then see you soon."We have NO IC reason to say anything else. We have zero idea of Blueberries past relationships nor do we know anything about her wish about this guy. Hell for all we know she made her wish about something different in this world.

>>25908601[x]Let's do >>25908623
>>25908623[x] Seconding this. It's just good sense to give her a heads-up about a possible new threat.
>>25908601[X] O...kay then. I'm sure Sayaka will be happy to see you.
>>25908601[X] Panic. Kyouko's coming by later, so that means Midori's coming by later. Meaning Midori and Iori are probably going to meet again. So, panic.
>>25908488This picture got me thinking...You can't summon a god or transcendent being as a Servant, because only people who died as humans qualify as a Heroic Spirit, so the Godoka version is out.But normal Magical Girl Madoka really doesn't have much that could qualify as a Noble Phantasm, and the most notable thing about her story is really Homura...Would her Phantasm be Unlimited Homura Works? The Grail lists it as "Unlimited Murderface Works" as some kind of sick joke, so even Madoka doesn't know what the fuck it does until she actually uses it.
>>25908575>not just downloading a different sub group
>>25908601...Looks like Decu changed things, and Kyosuke hated playing violin.But does that mean that Sakaya's wish is also different? The same wish but for different intentions? Or did she use her wish for something that he didn't even want to do?>[x]Tell her that its possible that the yanks have hired a magical girl, or at least the head honcho knows about magical girls. Perhaps we can throw in the factoid about the concert being moved from the mall to the stadium.
>>25908674"Kyoko PLS pass the phone to Midori, after this."
>>25908676YES. I like this idea.
>>25908679Ironically, it wasn't even a big stretch by Decu. It was said in the Making of Madoka stuff that in some timelines, Kyouske wanted to play guitar instead. Hence why there's some hilarious fanart of him in DMC out there.
>>25908674Actually, that's an issue.>>25908601[x]Tell Kyouko to pass the phone, tell Midori that Iori's around and she the two can't meet.

>>25908766None of the linked posts even mention the yakuza at all, so your implication doesn't make sense. Maybe you should actually read what's being posted.

Just a friendly tap in the stomach, nothing permanent! I won't be transformed either, so it'll be fine!"...Right. Just so she knows.Anyway, you go on to tell her about the incident with the Tojo Group, earlier. If she's going to run down some yakuza later, then she may as well be prepared to come up against Magical Girl backup. "...Really? Huh. The last yak job I took was from them. Nice guys, really, but a bit too obsessed with becoming legit if you ask me." A grunt. "If they're messing about with the Tenth, well, that's their decision, but I bet Kyuubey's pissed about that."Nope, the mutant cat's not too pleased about it."Alright. Thanks for the tip, Murderface. I'll make sure to watch out. Yaks won't even get within ten feet of Midorin, don't you worry!"...You appreciate it, but you haven't even asked about that."Ha! I knew you were gonna, anyway!"Dammit....Well, that reminds you. Can Kyoko hand the phone over to Midori for a moment?"Sure, hold on." A pause, and you hear Kyoko snickering as the phone is passed over. "Ah, yes, sempai?" Midori's voice comes on. "Something you'd like me to bring in our stopover?"It's going to be a bit delicate here, but you need to tell Midori about Iori, and what could happen if they met. How do you tell Midori about avoiding the idol she almost had raped?
>>25908904Tell her to just be inconspicuous, no need for magical disguises or anything but just no "hi I'm Midori I helped in your attempted rape"
>>25908904Tell her simply that we're not sure if Iori will recognise her. Perhaps a simple Magical Midori Makeup to change her appearance slightly will be enough.They'll be a day for the breaking of the news and apologies (Don't worry, Chiaki will stand beside you) but today is not that day.
>>25908904I don't think we need to be too delicate here. she's a smart girl if we just let her know that making an appearance around iori is a bad idea she will get it. I mean it's not rocket science
>>25908904It's just going to be a stop so Kyouko can deliver something, right? Tell her to stay in the car.
>>25908925[x] This and add[x]Be Chiakia "Murderface" Matsuda-Blunt: "Uh.. Iori Minase is here as you know so.. uh.. try to stay low key and not run into her. It would be awkward."
>>25908925>Iori recognizes Midorin>Confronts us"Tell me Iori, why would I be hanging around a girl who almost raped you, and then had her kneecaps shot off by me. By conventional logic, she shouldn't even be walking. Are you sure you have the right girl?"And we don't even have to lie.
I'm honestly not sure if Iori actually saw the real Midori, honestly. Pinky may have broken the illusion for us, but it's possible Iori never saw anything but Yayoi when she was throwing up and unconscious.
>>25908946I'd rather we do this. There's a lot less that can go wrong if Midori isn't even inside the stadium.
>>25908904There's a former client of mine here that you might recognize. The *only* one you'd have a reason to recognize. You... might want to stay in the car?
>>25908904[X] Heads up, Iori's here...yeah. Try to be inconspicuous.
>>25908904[X] "Uh.. Iori Minase is here as you know so.. uh.. You... might want to stay in the car?"
Actually, come to think of it, we can probably assume Iori wouldn't recognize Midori at all.After all, she's voicing Murder Mayumi in the MMxMM OVA. Which means she's probably seen at the very least some concept/promotional art. Which means she probably knows what the character Miracle Midori looks like.If Iori had gotten a good look at Midori's real appearance during the rape incident and remembered it, I highly doubt she'd be remotely willing to voice a character who is romantically involved with a character that looks uncannily like the magical girl who nearly got her raped.
>>25908904[x] "Okay, this is the sort of thing I need to be delicate about but we both know that isn't going to work so just, I dunno, brace yourself.You braced? Good.Minase Iori is here. I don't know how much she remembers but it would probably be best if she didn't see you."
>>25909004>>25908978I'm kind of thinking of this as well.
>>25908904[X]Bluntly.I don't think there's a way to dance around this diplomatically.
>>25909004Doesn't mean things won't get awkward on Midorin's end.
Inb4 Midori tells us she has already made up with Iori
>>25908904"...There's a chance Iori Minase is going to be in the area, since she's in the act here. Also, she's apparently doing voicework for Miracle Midori. Is there any chance she's going to recognize you? It would be a bit bad if she did, all things considered."
>>25908904>[x]"Iori is here, I know that you had no choice last mission, but if she recognises you, then it will cause an incident and that is the last thing we want."
>>25909024You can't rape the willing, after all.
>>25909004Still best not to assume too much.She was in clear view vomitting when we broke out of the illusion, she might have seen her and mentally blocked her resemblance, its a coping method for trauma. Seeing her in the flesh might shock back the memory that she saw her that night.
Midorin is a fucking meguca with specialization in infiltration and subterfuge, and I doubt any disguise takes that much effort on her part, not to mention Iori may not even have full view and/or committed her into memory. Minimal magical disguise and let her do whatever
>>25908633why is that
>>25909041I'm quite sure she did.She had a good view of Chiaki advancing on Midori after she slaughtered the rapist and kneecaping her.
>>25909041>>25909039Either way, I think asking her to keep a low profile is most appropriate. No need for "lol stay in the car bitch."
>>25909064And a light application of magical midori makeup.
>>25908904[x]"Midori, I'll be blunt. Iori is here, so you might need to be in disguise. Did she get a look at you during the incident at the hotel?"
[X] Iori Minase is here and if you drop by, the two of you will probably meet. Whether you want to avoid her or apologize to her, that's up to you. Just thought you should know that if you happen to meet, she will not be happy. That's all.
Well, I doubt Iori would accept an apology from Midorin.

Midori's voice is the same as it always is, except you could hear a bit of nervousness to it. You do your best to ignore it as you plough on ahead - this is important, after all, and you can't afford to half-ass it.It's with careful, measured tones, then, that you tell Midori about Iori being here, and...well, what could happen if the idol recognized her. She did see in the webcast that the idol's voicing Murder Mayumi, right? If they're going to stop over, then it may be prudent for her to keep a low profile. "Ah. I...I see, sempai."There's silence on the other end. Uneasy, uncomfortable silence, a silence that you couldn't help but try and fill. It's not that you don't want the both of them to meet or even...well, just hash things out, but this isn't the time nor the place for it. You'll be there for her when that has to happen, but not now."N-no, sempai, it's alright." Midori's voice catches slightly as she reassures you. "I...I know what I did, nothing's going to change that. And...and yes, I know what could happen if she recognized me. I'm not really sure myself if she got a clear look at me or not, anyway. Things kind of get blurry around the time you shot my legs off." A giggle, here, that even you could spot as forced. "But sure, sempai. I'll make sure I'm out of sight."You thank her for being patient with you. She knows you're hardly the type to care about this sort of thing, unless it was really important."I know, sempai, and you don't have to apologize, or anything. I'll be fine." The smile in her voice isn't so forced, now. "Thank you for telling me in advance."[+2 Midori Points!]Right. That's all you wanted to tell her. [1/2]
>>25909354"Alright, sempai. Kyoko-san says we'll be stopping by in the evening. ...Ah, she wants to say goodbye."More shuffling, and Kyoko's voice comes on once more. "Yo, Murderface! I forgot, I wanted to talk to you about somethin'!"What is it?"Ah, huh...well, it can probably wait and stuff. You're busy and shit, an' I don't want to shovel more onto your plate. ...No, it's nothing serious, but I thought you'd want to know, seeing as I'm your aide and everything."...She's pregnant?"Hah! No! Jeez, Murderface, you nearly made me run over an old guy! It's nothing, just something about work! Anyway, see you later, an' thanks for watchin' over Sayaka!"No problem. Although really, it's the other way around."Don't let her hear you say that! Laters!"[+50 Kyoko Points!]You bid her goodbye, and the line goes dead. You shove your smartphone back into your inventory - just in time to catch the gleam of a sunbeam reflecting off a polished combat blade. One headed right for your kidneys.How do you react?
>>25909290I don't actually think this is a good idea. If the cameras catch sight of her and chiaki together then iori will have plenty of opportunity to recognize her. hiding in plain sight is not always the best plan

>>25909411This has my vote.
>>25909574But its not like we actively run away from her.And it was specifically mentioned that this is the final timeline left.

>>25909588I meant at the very start of this timeline, when we first created Faust, and when she probably first killed us.And it's probably the final timeline because the shield's broken.

>>25909680I'm not sure how this implies it was Homura herself who did it, as opposed to her just making note of the fact that it happened and she can't do anything about it.
I probably saved it when someone else used it in another MGNQ thread. It's probably cut from some fanart somewhere, though.
Is it Sayaka overhearing us spilling the beans?But Blueberry doesn't use combat blades. It will be swords out of cakes.
>>25909804Am I the only one who caught that sword from cake joke a few threads ago?
>>25909812You are not, and it was great.
>>25909723it's of Fujiwara no mokou, one of those Touhous.
>>25909812I caught it too, and I'm glad, I usually miss the subtle stuff.
>>25909812I only realised after the fact.I didn't even find it odd when it was mentioned. It's like my brain just processed it as making perfect sense. Sky is blue, water is wet, Sayaka pulls her swords out of cakes.
>>25909812>>25909828I didn't get it...Halp, pls?
>>25909812>Am I the only oneNo. The answer is always no. You are NEVER the only one.
>>25909838Sayaka was grumbling about how pancakes were a kind of cake, and she was sure she could pull a sword out of hers.
>>25909838In an early thread, Sayaka pulled a sword out of her cape like usual, but it was typoed to cake. A drawfag later made fanart of it.
>>25909838There are tons of fanart about Sayaka pulling swords out of cakes. It became a bit of an in-joke.
>>25909846Saw that but um..>>25909851Oh. That makes more sense.
>>25909838Decu fucked up one thread and wrote Sayaka pulled a sword from her cake instead of her cape.
>>25909829Yes, I know, I'm looking for the source of that image in particular.

oh god make it stop
>>25909403 >>25909411No, you're not at all trained for melee combat, but you've always been surprised about your...talent for it. You're no innate master, that's for sure, your moves aren't as refined or as practiced as that of even the lowest-ranking Eversor - but despite the lack of finesse and technique, you seem to have developed a natural, almost reflexive instinct to cause pain in the most brutal ways possible. Even without a gun in your hands.Turning on your heel - holding your right arm out - you spin around to smash your shield into the incoming blade. Instead of feeling the point of the blade add another jagged scar into the already ruined face of your shield, you instead grit your teeth against the impact of the metal plate's edge dislodging the weapon from the hand that gripped it. Hearing a surprised cry of pain as the brief resistance that met your Shield yielded, then vanished a moment later. You catch a glimpse of a well-sized combat blade spinning end over end somewhere down into the bleachers as you immediately lunge forward, giving your attacker absolutely no time to react. Stepping right into his combat radius, you jam a foot behind their ankle and shove him into a backwards fall with his own fucking face. Putting your entire weight into the shove, your fingers curling around his skull as you follow him down.Your assailant all but gets slammed right into the concrete, making the satisfying noise of wind being forced right out of their lungs and then some. Throwing a leg over them in a top-control straddle, the golden Desert Eagle gleams in your hand as you press its mouth onto the poor bastard's forehead in a soft, almost gentle kiss.[1/2]
I can't be the only one cackling away like a madman at our regular insanity.
>>25910098The entire encounter took no longer than three heartbeats. You know this, because you heard your attacker's own heart thudding in your ears, adrenalin-fast, quickened by danger. It would have taken you another to pull the trigger, and whoever had the audacity to attack you during a scopeout would need to be carted away covered in newspapers. No open-casket burial.Until, of course, you hear a familiar voice, panicked and desperate, underneath you."A-alright, ma'am! I yield, I yield! You got me! I surrender! I give!"...Kyosuke...?You blink away the red haze in your vision, your brow furrowing as you look down at your would-be assailant - and victim.Huh. It is Kyosuke. Gasping for breath underneath you, the young man looking up at the Desert Eagle's massive barrel. To his credit, he doesn't look all that scared - although he's sweating quite a bit, and all the color's drained from his face.Huh? What...did he sneak up on you? Did a non-magical girl mook just very nearly got the fucking drop on you?Something flapping at your field of vision catches your eye. You glance toward it - it's somebody's black suit, its sleeves flapping in the air. You look back down towards the young man you're currently pinning to the ground - and notice that he's now clad in only a singlet, with a shoulder holster and a bandolier of magazines worn over it. An empty combat knife sheathe strapped to his side.Well, of course he's still wearing his pants. He'd just look weird without them."I...uh. Ma'am, please, I know you're angry, but...m-may I please ask if you could take your trigger finger away from the huge gun about to blow my head clean off? At..at least until I can explain everything, ma'am." Kyosuke tries again, managing to force a guilty smile....No, you're not amused. You're not amused at all.How do you react?
>>25910098oh boy, dead kyousuke incoming
>>25910127"Better start talking then."Keep the barrel to his head. No fucking around, he could be a plant.

>>25910127"Start explaining"Scan the area for more mooks.
>>25910127I'm confused. Did we whack him hard enough to rip his coat off, or did he take it off, or is this a setup for sayaka to walk in on, or what?

>>25910127[x]"You just pulled a knife on me. Explanation first. Then MAYBE Mr Finger will reconsider giving Mr Trigger a hug."
>>25910158I'm confused as well. All I do know is that he came up behind us with a knife, although it could of been a case of mistaken identity.
>>25910183Shit's just got weird.
>>25910127[X] "Explain yourself. You have three seconds."
>>25910183I think the fucker was trying to be a smart aleck and show that Magical Girls are not all powerful. Or some silly test.Silly bugger.
>>25910127>[x]"I'm not stupid and besides, I'm the one with the gun to you head. I am within my right to demand answers!"We batter disarm him before we let him go. Another explanation is that he is being controlled buy one of the hax powers of the saints.

>>25910127If this is how you approach a girl no wonder Kyouko likes you
I think we should put a round in his leg after this no matter what the answer. Or maybe let Kyoko beat the shit out of him while transformed. You don't jump a Warmaster, others would have his skin for this joke.
>>25910207Sallaka has a really bad sense of humor.[X] "So what, you wanna kill yourself but you're too much of a bitch to pull the trigger?"
>>25910207Haha.Ha, that's pretty funny. We should get him ti helo us play a joke on Sayaka, something like professing his undying love to her just before her girlfriend arrives.

Kyosuke, stop being an idiot.
>>25910387You are three hours and 52 minutes too late to make the voting deadline for that post. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
Why don't we pull a Bolton and cut his right hand off? Or would that be worthless since he can't play violin with it anyway?
>>25910463Err, so we can send him back to his blue haired Cersi with it hanging around his neck? Maybe we could add an 'the magical girls send there regards' in somewhere before we betray someone.

>>25910505Boltons, Bannermen, why get caught up in the small details? >>25910354...Check for cameras.
>>25910144 >>25910145 >>25910150 >>25910181Yeah, no. You keep the Desert Eagle on him as you keep him pinned there. He pulled the knife on you, so no favors. He's lucky you're in the mood to be reasonable, despite everything that's happened so far. Either he explains why he just tried to knife you in the kidneys, or you explain to Sayaka that she'll have to conduct their timely reunion with him in the morgue."R-right. That's...that's fair, Miss Matsuda." Kyosuke swallows audibly, eyes darting nervously from you, to the gun, then back at you again. "M-Miss Matsuda, I'm...I'm team leader of my squad. We're...well, we're not magical. We don't have any sparkles."Of course. Even you can tell that. But what does that have to do with anything?"It's got...it's got everything to do with everything, Miss MatsudaNOPLEASEDON'TSHOOTPLEASEDON'TSHOOT," Kyosuke's words start to run together at the end when you pulled back the trigger the tiniest fraction of a millimeter more. You don't like it when the people you're interrogating try to be smart with you. "We're...it's sort of a tradition, Miss Matsuda! The team leader of any op has to get a souvenir f-from any Magical Girl working with us! That's all it was, Miss Matsuda, and that's the honest truth!"A...souvenir? You narrow your eyes at him, and prod him a bit more with your Desert Eagle. What's this stupid (and obviously suicidal) tradition for? What kind of souvenir do they have to take from the presiding Magical Girl? And if he wanted something like that, couldn't he have just asked you for it, whatever it was?[1/2]
>>25910555Shoot him in the ass. That counts as a souvenir.
>>25910555"J-just a scrap of cloth from your uniform, Miss Matsuda! Nothing else!" Kyosuke shakes his head furiously. "I was...I was trying to go for one of the tails in your back ribbon, I didn't think you'd miss it! A-and it's part of the tradition, to take it with a knife, a-and without the Magical Girl knowing!" It's here he absolutely looks wretched. "And...o-of course I know it's a stupid tradition, Miss Matsuda, but...but that sort of ruins the point, doesn't it? If we ask for it, then what's...what's the point?" He swallows again, unable to take his eyes away from the Desert Eagle's barrel pressed against his forehead. "It's...I suppose you can say it's a game for us, Miss Matsuda. One where we can at least feel that we're proving to ourselves that we're...we're not obsolete, as such."...Obsolete?Kyosuke nods. "It's...we're one of the few security agencies left, Miss Matsuda. I don't mind it much, b-but...well, ever since the Magical Girls came in, we've been getting less and less work. Principals nowadays can't seem to sleep right without a Magical Girl signed onto their detail, not like the days when they'd be satisfied with a well-armed squad or two." Despite himself, he lets out a sigh. "It's...well, it's just our way of coping, ma'am. Yes, I know it was uncalled for and unprofessional, but the team needed a morale boost after...after what happened back at the hotel." Another sigh. "And these guys are family men, Miss Matsuda. They feed their families through this work. They don't mean any harm, they just need a bit of a morale boost."Huh. That's...you suppose that makes sense. In a stupid sort of way....Wait. So, if this is the first time he'd seen a Magical Girl, then...?[2/3]
>>25910555It's going to be panties.
>>25910594"This...this is my first time doing it, Miss Matsuda." Kyosuke allows himself a helpless, awkward smile. "I snuck up on you when you looked preoccupied with your phone. Stashed my coat away so I wouldn't make too much noise." He shakes his head. "I...I thought I'd get away with it, but..." He tries to shrug, but with his arms pinned to his sides by your own legs, all he manages is a brief twitch of his shoulders. "It sucks trying to sneak up on a Magical Girl."Well, he's said his case. Managing to at least look honest with a gun still pressed against his forehead and a Magical Girl straddling him.How do you react?
>>25910602HUE TIME>[x]Give him wendy's panties.If it turn out that he's going to 'occult' reasons, then whatever he's going won't effect us
>>25910602Point him in the direction of blueberry and tell him to try again.
>>25910602Okay, its a fucking stupid thing but its a straight answer.Stash gun, get off him.And cut a small bit of cloth off the skirt. Let the boys have their trophy. It means naught anyways.
>>25910602We still have at least one pair of magical girl panties in our inventory right?
>>25910602"Would a bullet casing make a suitable souvenir?"If he says yes, shoot him in the foot and then hand him the brass.
>>25910602Get off him and tell him to pick himself up off the floor. Take the knife and cut off a sleeve fragment or something for him.
Rolled 61>>25910620lets go with this. and refuse to explain anything.

>>25910623She's not in costume though, is she?Besides, that'll get him even more violently murdered.
>>25910602[X] Sorry to say, no souvenirs this time. Unless you want a bullet somewhere? Didn't think so. Oh and word of advice: find another tradition. There are plenty of girls in the market who would kill you for this. Dismissed.
>>25910620That's actually quite funny...
>>25910602paranoia tells me not to fork over a piece of our costume, we probably have a stare ribbon stashed somewhere?
>>25910623>>25910627[X] either of these

>>25910620>>25910625..... Aren't they... laminated?Won't that raise way more questions than it answers?
>>25910602[X] Let him up, cut him off a piece of the costume. Tell him he should pick up the guitar or something, because fucking around like this will get him killed.
>>25910602Lower the gun slowly, leap off him and let him get back upTell him that he doesn't have a very good chance of getting a scrap from someone as paranoid as we are and we would prefer he not try again while we are working on this job since we might think he is a Yakuza goon and just ventilate him next timeCommend him on his attempt though, he managed to sneak up behind us, and nearly get a knife within stabbing distance before we noticed, not many people are that good.Sparkles or no
>>25910602>>25910594>>25910555>[X] ShadowrunsEVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASONKYOSUKE JUST NOW REMEMBERING THE "TRADITION" OF TRYING TO ATTACK A MG IS BULLSHITITS A FAKE MEMORY MOST LIKELY PUT IN HIM BY THE MAGICAL CARD USING WITCH
>>25910594>>25910602>not like the days when they'd be satisfied with a well-armed squad or twoHonestly, when the opposition is likely to be Magical in nature, you've got to at least be a full-on OPERATOR outfit using ex-SpecOps types if you want a chance of coming out successful. [x] "Yes, yes it does suck to sneak up on a Magical Girl. I'm surprised more of you haven't been killed trying these kinds of stunts before."Let him get up.And no, he doesn't get anything; he doesn't deserve it.
>>25910602Can we just give him our pack of smokesIt's not like we're going to have it by the end of the day If midorin is coming by.If we want to be violent, we can press a cig burn on his face "as a lesson"
>>25910602>>25910627Very tempted to go with something to this effect (my thought would've just been to shoot him in the leg and tell him the bullet's his souvenir, he can even get it with his knife per tradition), but seeing as it's a morale thing, and we do want Kyousuke's goon squad to be doing their jobs competently that's probably a bad idea.
>>25910659We don't have to use the Golden DE to do it. In fact, wait, fuck.[x] PUT THE GOLDEN GUN AWAY.[x]Also, get a nice small .22 and shoot him somewhere non-fatal with it, and give him the casing.
>>25910602Tell him an old friend is coming to punch his gut.That'll be his last chance.Kyoko seems cool enough to let it slide if he pulls it off.
>>25910602I'm doing It only for certain's someone praise.I challenge you to a game. Two Magical Girls are going to visit me. If you'd be good enough to snatch something from them, I'd give you my ribbon. Friendly tip:Red/Green combo.Game startHFW Kyouko

>>25910685>[x] PUT THE GOLDEN GUN AWAY.oh hell, this.
>>25910667...Dammit, this is just too damn plausible.Do we have any way of detecting if someone's under some sort of mind control/memory alteration?
>>25910620That's funny...but too HUE for me.[x] "You know...there will be another Magical Girl arriving here soon. How about you try again?"Send him after Kyouko for maximum hilarity. And she gets her wish!
>>25910620>>25910625>>25910636Fuck you, NO!
>>25910702oh fuck yes, this would be hilarious
>>25910602>>25910724[x]I'll link it too I guess.
>>25910702OMG THIS IS AMAZING.DO IT
>>25910602[x]Tell you what, there's another pair of magical girls coming this evening. Try it against them, they're slower in the head than I am. [x]Also put the fucking golden gun away.
>>25910667>>25910703>>25910706>>25910712We can always check it out by asking Kyosuke to tell him who told him about this tradition. Maybe even call that person to speak with us if he/she is here.
No matter what we doWe should ask him why us and not sayakaIt's a risk/reward principle thing
>>25910702[x] FUCK YES
>>25910703Oh yea, there is one in the ten's employ that can do that.
>>25910748I'm fairly sure Sayaka's not officially 'outed' as a Magical Girl to him.
>>25910602[x]Give him Wendy's panties. But under the stipulation that he mail them back to us. And also does not ask us one fucking thing about why we have them or where they came from.
>>25910702A+ plan do it.As for Wendy's panties, they're all too precious to waste here.
>>25910736>>25910740>>25910702Don't forget your boxes.
[x] Ask him exactly how many of his colleagues have actually been successful with this suicidal errand. Surely something must have given him the idea that he had a chance.
I just had a dumb idea. Check in with the rest of the squad to confirm his story and then coordinate with them to steal a piece from Kyoko once she arrives.
>>25910602[x]I agree with the plan to send him after Midori and Kyouko instead.
>>25910703>>25910667>>25910754Oh, wait, fuck. She's the one currently assigned personally to the yak from the Tojo Group that's been trying to get Ruri to sign on with them.Yeah, that IS plausible, now that I think about it.
>>25910767No fucking panties.We're suppose to return it! Not give it away!
>>25910702[x] DO IT
>>25910602[X] check with the rest of the meatheads.
>>25910702[x] Make it happen
>>25910702[x] This seems interesting enough to work, though I'd rather have him go against Kyoko only. Rather not have any questions about Midori for Iori reasons.
>>25910767>But under the stipulation that he mail them back to usThat undermines the whole fucking point of having a trophy back at the company. Damn, you are one stupid chucklefuck.
>>25910773>>25910667>>25910703>>25910706>>25910712>>25910754>>25910785Fuck, now we MUST check it out, this might be a serious security breach if their memories could be modified.
>>25910805They were already hypnotized once by the card. Perhaps it has a persistent control over them?
Rolled 31seeing this, I undo my vote for giving him the panties. I instead vote for>>25910702with a side helping of>>25910667
>>25910602[x] "How many times has this actually worked? I'm surprised more of you haven't died trying to pull a stupid stunt like this."This question should tell us if it's a fake memory; a fake probably wouldn't go into this much detail. And we can individually ask each other member of the detail about this "tradition". Probably best not to let it go over the network.
>>25910702This is perfect.
>>25910747Yeah[X] Alright, whatever. Who told you that tradition anyway?
>>25910698[X] I like this one.
Alright, that's it for this thread! I have a bit of stuff to clear out, commissions and so on, so MGNQ will continue on Sunday!Thank you for your participation, and feedback is always appreciated! Questions answered before I go to sleep!
>>25910867>chikuwa so soonAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>25910867>SundayaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaThanks for running Decu.Doesn't this tradition, rack up alot of bodies from MGs killing the bog standards?
>>25910867>SundayBut...my fix?? Decu pls. So where is First Officio located?
>Internet dead since yesterday>Had to buy a new router and got it working just now>Fuck
On an entirely unrelated note. Kyoko and Midori are searching for a missing girl. A missing girl who disappeared off the face of the Earth. Kinda like how a certain Rika "cosplayer" had no form of ID or any connection to anyone. Clearly they are related, and clearly they are coming because the two missions are related and Decu realized we are too dumb to notice that.Full Shadowrun Rika isn't actually Rika but a Callidus who has been fooling us and we are in a dream. We couldn't detect it because Noriko is a Culexus who blocked our magic detection
>>25910867Chikuwa haircut ver. when?
>>25910885Haha, sorry! But I do need to make time for drawing :'DOh, well, there has been some close calls!>>25910890Moon base!
>>25910890Pretty sure it was established that its on the moon.
>>25910890The moon of courseIt is presided over by moon rabbit Coobie and has his warmaster up there
>>25910867Kyousuke said that regular security outfits are being pushed out of the market because of Magical Girls being more effective, especially when other Magical Girls are being sent in to kill the principals.What about more heavily armed or specialist security firms, ones that are closer to being PMC's and so have better trained and combat-hardened personnel? Are they also being pushed out of the security market, or are they actually coming into the security market from the military market, since they're the only ones aside from other Magical Girls that could do the job?
>>25910907Moon Incubator's name is DecuubeyCaptcha: reason hueYes, Captcha, yes.
>>25910900>>25910902>>25910907But only the First Incubator and Warmaster are allowed on the Moon base. Where are the rest of the girls?
>>25910867What if I threaten to hunger strike until next thread?
>>25910867so sooooon!thanks for running.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questarchive is up, goodnight gentlemen.
>>25910915It's the regular security outfits feeling the pinch. The operators and PMCs are the ones that are being viewed as a 'cheaper' alternative to Magical Girls. They've also got specialized anti-Magical Girl weaponry.
>>25910944>They also got specialized anti-Magical Girl weaponryWHEN WERE WE GOING TO BE TOLD ABOUT THIS?
>>25910944>They've also got specialized anti-Magical Girl weaponry.Details please.How effective are their anti-Magical Girl weapons? And do we have access to any of this specialist weaponry?
>>25910923in the Moon BaseHUE
>>25910923Some are up there, too. But most of them are in active duty back on Earth. Hiding, waiting.>>25910936Wah, please don't do that! D:
>>25910955>>25910959I've yet to see a weaponry that can protect against a timestop
>>25910944>They've also got specialized anti-Magical Girl weaponry.Let me guess, tons of explosives right?
Giving away materials for enemy magic girl voodoo doll i think not.
>>25910959We will when we shoot out the user's kneecaps
>>25910974this only makes wendy's panties a funnier idea to me
>>25910959I expect it's formerly equipment known as Anti-Tank weapons.
>>25910969>Hiding, waiting.Wait, so First Officio is allowed to operate anywhere on Earth? Do they have sleeper agents within the other Officios?With the First's position as Home Office and superior to all other Incubators, I suppose that's something that he could get away with.
>>25910955>>25910959>>25910971I can't give all that away! D: Things will be revealed in the coming threads!
>>25910969>Hiding, waiting.Oh motherfucker. This sounds...ominous. And awesome.
>>25910971Could be like a Battletech needler. Fires a ton of flechettes all the fuck everywhere that eviscerate unarmored targets very quickly.
>>25911001If not specifics or details, what about at least what we've heard through rumors in the industry? What other Magical Girls had to go up against when they tangled with a PMC anti-Magical Girl squad, or similar.
>>25910990Sort of! They're like the God Emperor's custodians in a way, if we were to draw that kind of parallel! A First Officio Magical Girl is a very high-ranking one. Only the best get to be included in its ranks!
>>25910970Why do people still think we can timestop willy nilly?It's been established early on pinky needs to be a good mood for that shit, and its the only thing keeping us from walking over everything because "lol time stop"
>>25911027Well, you can ask that once you encounter other Officios and their Warmasters. But rumor has it that the weapons they use are able to counter Magic.
>>25910894There's a point where this needs to stop and this Shadowruns thing has crossed it.
>>25911028>Only the best get to be included in its ranks!When you say best, do you mean like Kharn-best or Mami-best?Because those are 2 different things.
>>25911028I assume they only ever get unleashed when someone needs to get shitstomped into oblivion. Have they ever been unleashed in full force?
>>25911001>Things will be revealed in the coming threads!>will be revealed in the coming threads>will be revealedFUCK! We're going to be going up against PMC Operators operating with operational anti-Magical Girl weapons.Depending on an unreliable Time Stop or doing things for the HUE is going to get us killed.
>>25911028Does that mean that you transfer to the First?Or do they just have the worlds greatest Headhunters?Pun IntendedCaptcha: Lord Decul
>>25911045>complaining about shadowruns>when the possibility that the enemy can modify memories existsYou can complain if we overeact over nothing, but not this time.
>>25911053Combine Kharn best and Mami best, and you get half of what it takes to be a First Officio girl!>>25911054Nope! But whenever they appear it's like an Angel saving the souls of the Magical Girls they're fighting!
>>25911045implying I come here for any reason other than to post the most Shadowruns things I can think of
paranoia engage. we should get independent confirmation of this tradition from people not exposed to the hypno-magic yakuza.did we have anyone to check on that shit afterword?God damn it i hope Kyousuke isn't an unaware plant now. probably is now that we know he kyoko's friend.
>>25911084>Mami>1/4 of what it takessomething better than Mami?WHAT HERESY IS THIS!
>>25911084So impossibly perfect and utterly unstoppable in combat?>>25911073It would be tolerable and funny if you faggots didn't do it about everything and end up wrong all the timeSeriously when has the tin foil hat brigade been right about anything? Name one time
>>25911084>Combine Kharn best and Mami best, and you get half of what it takes to be a First Officio girl!>Kharn's battle prowess+Mami's Super Secretery powers= 1/2 average 1s Officio Meduka!
>>25911084So the first officio's girls are impossibly saintly badassess?That's impressive.And reassuring
>>25910894An unsuited Culexus in the same room as Sayaka without her or us noticing is an impossibility. Try again.
>>25911107I distinctly recall a time when Decu tweeted that he "didn't expect anyone to get the twist so quickly" right after a bout of shadowruns that all said the same thing. I don't recall what that was though.
>>25911073None of the shit in the post I quoted made any sense. Healthy paranoia is fine, but we're going to do something retarded due to Shadowruns hue. I can feel it.
>>25911107>Implying we do this to be funny>>25911110>Kharn's battle prowess+Mami's Super Secretery powers= 1/2 average 1s Officio MedukaMath proves it, 1st Officio is bullshit.
>>25911129She is all sweaty and gross because its a Culexus Morph suit, it's not that she doesn't shower, its that showering a morph suit doesn't work and she can't blow her cover
>>25911131iirc the twist wasn't related to any shadowrun bullshit but instead one post amid it all that actually guessed
>>25911084>Mami only 1/4 bestSo the First Officio girls can make whiskey pancakes that can bring a Magical Girl to toe-curling orgasm in one bite? Decu pls no
>>25911127Malal did receive an invitation to transfer to the first, but she turned it down!
>>25911143Better everyone else laughs at you then just wishes you would die a horrible painful death for beating a dead horse so much you are punching the ground where it's blood soaked in
>giving personal gifts to yucky boysPinky is always watching and she is a jealous God.
>>25911084>Combine Kharn best and Mami best, and you get half of what it takes to be a First Officio girl!Huh. So when QB said that if he ever went crazy one of the first things he'd do is try to attack the First Officio, he wasn't exaggerating when he said that he would have to be insane to try something like that.
>>25911156Oh, so when paranoia hits gold it's good, but when it doesn't it's shadowrun bullshit?
>>25911127>And reassuringYes, it's reassuring to get lolraeped by your opponent. No need to make decisions, since no matter what you do, you're fucked. Yes yes, 'tis a jest. But if there is anyone who can piss off the Incubators enough to get these girls to appear, it's us.
>>25911171This only encourages my belief that everyone in the first is Madoka
>>25911172Calm your tits.
Decu, does that mean the Warmaster of the First Officio is the strongest Magical Girl alive?
>>25911189Kriemhild Gretchen is the Warmaster.
>>25911171So Meduka stronk in all universes, then?Why is Malal's last name different, anyway?
>>25911205It's a safe assumption.
>>25911044>But rumor has it that the weapons they use are able to counter Magic.>counter MagicSo, maybe they have Anti-Magic Field charms woven into their body armor, or surgically implanted?Even if it's just a sniper rifle .338 Lapua Magnum bullet with anti-magic runes carved into it, it holds the potential to break through our Time Stop.
>>25911205Well, I would say yes, pretty strong!>>25911207To be revealed in MalalQuest!
>>25911229>it holds the potential to break through our Time Stop.but how can it travel if time is stopped?
>>25911238o god. MalalQuest is going to be so far away
>>25911238>MalalQuestSee you all next year, then.
>>25911238>Malalquestwhy must you tease us so Decu?
>>25911244Anti-Magic Field prevents our Time Stop from affecting the bullet and the space around it so that it can continue to travel through non-Time Stopped air.
>>25911238>MalalQuest!MY PENIS IS DIAMONDS!
>>25911303non-Time Stopped air.but thats not how time works...
>>25911352It's anti-magic, man.Ain't gotta explain shit.>ifines miracles
>>25911352Time Stop works by stopping time with magic, yes? Then if someone were to have an anti-magic field, then they would be unaffected by the time stop, allowing them to move within a Time Stopped world. This would effectively make them like Kirika, whose own time manipulation powers allowed her to move and act in spite of our Time Stop.
>counter MagicWe really need to see if we can pull that ribbons to rifles bullshit like Mami. We could really use some other non-pinky attracting/gifted powers.Wings bows fuck being able to summon multiple different sized shield even if they miss the inventory/timestop could be useful. Eventually we will run into someone who no amount of conventional weapons will mean shit to. Then we'll be stuck using that golden crap.. actually forget everything golden is great.
ANTI-MAGIC IS A CULLEXUS ONLY ABILITYNO NORMAL HUMAN COULD DO THAT
>>25911435>We really need to see if we can pull that ribbons to rifles bullshit like Mami.But no ribbons.And if anything, we need back our TK like in the anime.
>>25911394Thats not how it works. Its not the the whole world stops because Homu`s Timestop. its just that Homu leaves the timestream. This is also why you have to touch her so her Ability effects you too.This is not something you can counter except if your Magical Ability is something like ÜBER-lightspeed like with The Flash.
>>25911503>magic shield>no nifty passive defensive abilityinb4 melee skill+ on vind is our special ability. fuck thats it isn't it... so mundane.
>>25911515In the MGN setting you can "counter" it by:Having a 2Fast2Furious ability like you saidBeing a culexus like >>25911451 saidHaving a time based ability like Kirika did.All of them are only possible ofcourse for magical girls, there is no way a normal human can counter the ultimate timestop ability Homu has, even if it is a Anti-Meduca PMC.
I'm curious about the specifics of how our shield is broken. IS the sand timer bit broken?It's a long quest and I've forgotten that detail if it was ever said.
>>25911581You don't need defense if you shoot first.
>>25911600Of course they're normally only possible for Magical Girls. But if an anti-Meguca PMC has anti-magic weapons and equipment, which should already be impossible, what makes you so sure they don't have anti-magic fields?
>>25911634I'm wondering why the Incubators haven't already wiped them out. When a third side has something to threaten your operatives, it's sort of..concerning. Maybe one of them is selling them the tech. Or it just isn't up to the point where it can threaten more than 1-2 megucas at a time.
>>25911634>what makes you so sure they don't have anti-magic fields?Read >>25911451, there is a reason Culexus are so rare and treasured.
>>25911670The Silent Rooms are based on Culexus principles but you don't need one slotted into it, apparently. So their powers can be mimicked, at least to an extent, by Incubator technology.
>>25911687Exactly, Incubators. So the only way for the PMC to get that technology is for them to cooperate with an Officio, and in that case we aren't talking about "normal people" we are talking about "People that are backed up with magic"
>>25911620summon shields that absorb and then fire incoming attacks back at people, Wait was the at sufficient velocity crap shotgun shield in this quest? I can't remember clearly whether it was or some other pmmm quest/fanfic.having an automatic shield summon defense so we don't need to watch out for kidney knives.summonable shields that can act like portals. inventory is clearly out witch barrier. we should stick out head in to the shield sometime see what it looks like. fuck even if we can still only summon the one shield being able to make it appear near things and suck it up would be useful.
>>25911716For example, there's the Third Incubator that decided to cash out of the Meguca industry and no longer be held accountable to the energy quotas from Home Office, so he could concentrate on pure profiteering. What's to say that he hasn't gotten into the magical weapons industry with Incubator tech?Or the Tenth, who uses unsavory tactics that are supposed to be taboo among the Incubators.Just because 'normal humans' can't do something, doesn't mean that such 'normal humans' can't buy the tech to do the said thing (anti-magic fields) from an Incubator that's more concerned about profit or destabilizing a rival Officio.
