One year and eight months ago, you were a Magical Girl. Your mission: to escort Malal, the Warmaster's Equerry, as she delivers a modified Culexus Hardsuit to the Eighth Officio in Santa Destroy, California, United States of America. Before that, though, there's a fourteen-hour flight you have to sit through - and you're doing that now, trapped in between the Culexus herself and Kirika Kure, the Eversor Rank Leader and your immediate superior. The former is messing about her tablet, as she's wont to do. Kirika is enjoying the beverage cart each time it passes by, already building up quite a collection of empty single shot bottles on her pull-down tray. She's slapped the beverage cart girl and the stewardesses two times each on the ass already, and you've had to apologize to them personally about it. And it's only been two hours since takeoff.Things like this tend to color your attitude.
>>26285463You've never been to America before. In fact, this might be the first time you're heading so far out overseas.This isn't exactly something you've been looking forward to, if you'll be honest. Sure, you accepted the mission with a smile and a salute, and you didn't flinch when Kirika slapped your ass and told you to make sure Malal doesn't get lynched by the American Officio's clinically-insane, hamburger-huffing nutcases - but it's not something you'll be too eager to have displayed in your record. You've always dreaded interacting with other Magical Girls not part of your Officio. Moreso when they were...well, foreign. Casual xenophobia aside, it's because you don't think foreign magical girls take being a magical girl seriously enough.And being a Magical Girl is one of the most serious, if not THE most serious thing anyone can be.It's not...it's not all sparkles and shiny transformation sequences. It's not all about the power of love and friendship and hugging being able to solve EVERYTHING.Sometimes, sure. You'll accept that sometimes, all you need is a sense for diplomacy, a quick wit and being able to compromise.You don't have those. What you do have is the ability to cut through plate steel with a sword you can manifest in the time it takes you to think about it. What you do have is the ability to be able to throw a sword hard enough that it can punch through three yakuza and nick the ear of the hostage they were just about to rape. What you do have is a sick regenerative ability that lets you do the Piccolo thing when you're angry enough.And you've put all of those to becoming the only Eversor that Kirika Kure herself decided to take up as her own prodigy. THE Kirika Kure.So yes, you take being a Magical Girl seriously.And anyone else who doesn't should simply go fuck themselves and die in a fire.[1/2]
>>26285470There's not much to talk about your career, besides how seriously you've taken everything about it.You took your training seriously, to the point that you've graduated at the top of your class, even with Kirika Kure herself doing everything possible to drag you down (including setting two teams of Vindicares to target you during an obstacle course, using live ammunition).You've taken each and every mission you've been given or volunteered for seriously. Not a single mission failure ever since you've gotten into active duty, and a 100% kill ratio. Except for that one time that...well, you were asked to kill a perfectly-innocent civilian who just happened to see you. It's a black mark on your record, but you don't count it.People often tell you to tone it down a bit, take it down a notch or two.Chilling out every now and then wouldn't kill you, they'd advised.It's hard to be polite sometimes, but you've managed to put the point across that you didn't get to where you are today by 'chilling out'. You didn't become the Rank Leader's prodigy by 'taking it down a notch'. You're not about to take it lightly just because your boss is a fucking mutant cat, or...or because some amnesiac little bitch shot said boss and sprayed you with his fucking innards....No matter how much shampoo you used you could still smell melted marshmallow on your hair HOLY SHIT YOU ARE SO MAD RIGHT NOW. You even woke up earlier today with a half-asleep Kyoko chewing on your hair, for fuck's sake.Ngh. You shouldn't be here. You should be back home, guarding Girl A.Who knows what she'll do to Mami and Kyoko once she wakes up again? Once she gets another gun in her hands from...from God knows where?[2/3]
>>26285494You glance at your smartphone. You've called Kyoko three times already. All three times she'd told you that everything's okay, with Girl A still comatose, Mami staying by her bedside. She'd also told you to bring back something neat. A cowboy hat, or something. You told her you'll try, but you're not sure if Americans even wear them anymore.You can't shake off the feeling that Girl A is just bad news. Bad news for the Officio, bad news for everyone. Yes, Kyoko talked to you about not judging people right off the bat - even if they very nearly blew your head off and instead got your boss all over your hair. But ever since you dragged her comatose ass out of that Barrier - very nearly killing yourself and Mami in the process - you've been having dreams. Dreams of finding yourself in a large concert hall, full of empty seats. Towering over everyone with a horrendously large sword in your hand. Looking down at a tearful Girl A, a grenade in her hand. She flickers out of existence before everything explodes around you, and...that's when you wake up, your head swimming, feeling as if you've been underwater for a while....Bah. You have to focus. You have to take this seriously.What do you do now?Talk to Malal.Talk to Kirika.Call Kyoko.
>>26285502Call Kyoko. "Hi Sweetums!"
>>26285502>[x]Talk to Malal.We've called Kyoko enough times already and Kirika is just drunk and will probably molest us. Hm. Tempting.
>>26285470Kirika Kure confirmed as a lesbian trapped in a woman's body
>>26285502[x]Talk to Malal.>think we're getting MalalQuest>go diving on pixiv, find stuff, laff>suddenly, SayakaQuestAHAHAHA CAN'T RESIST
>>26285502Call KyoukoAsk if Girl A has so much as muttered in her sleep and if she slapped the shit out of her for it
>>26285502[X] Talk to Malal
>>26285502Talk to malal
>>26285463You made all the hair on my neck stand up on end. Considering the amount of adrenaline in my body from the medications I take make me unable to feel fear in the normal sense, you should be very self impressed right ow.
I love you Decu.
[X]Talk to Malal.Sayaka looks so angry in the starter...
>>26285596sallaka always angry
>>26285502>[x]Talk to Malal.Its culexus stuff, we need to know about if the thing does any freaky stuff.Will Sayaka be able to avoid the curse of the von Seckendorffs for the entirety of MGNQ?
>>26285502[x] Talk to MalalWe've called Kyoko enough, and Kirika is probably going to do something inappropriate.
YEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSTalk to pinkyi mean er Malal.
Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDbEbook will be updated an hour or so after Chikuwa
Well, this is new. This is what I get for not having a Twitter account.>>26285502[X]Talk to Malal.

>>26285955The kiss between the thighs stops her from ~bitching~ out
>>26285502[X] Talk to MalalI'm not sure what's more shocking: Kirika being a molester, Sallaka dreaming of losing it, or confirmation that coobies are marshmallows.
>>26285974[x] MalalAt least Kyouko isn't making smores out of Sayaka. Yet.
>>26285550 >>26285572 >>26285576 >>26285578You decide to talk to Malal, the Warmaster's Equerry. No, you're not really in talking terms with her or the rest of her overdressed, helmeted rankmates, but, well, you'd like to know more about this mission. It'd help you get up to speed on what to expect as soon as the plane touches down - as well as pass the time, if nothing else. You've got the best part of the flight to kill....It's not that the Culexus - or any other member of the rank itself - is hard to approach. No, they're legitimately nice people, not beholden to the hubris that seems to infect anyone who's just had her contract established and thus was told that she was now practically invincible and peerless (at least, to the rest of the world's population). But it was the Culexus' abilities themselves - the ability to disrupt magic just by simply being in the same vicinity - that made pariahs out of them in the first place. They were the veritable nerds in the high school officio cafeteria. No one wanted to be around them, no one wanted them in their missions (although, strictly speaking, having one in your team all but guaranteed the best support and the best equipment available). It's not to be cruel, of course - but no one wants to hang around with someone that makes you feel like puking your guts out and shitting your pants at the same time.Culexus Near-Proximity Sickness. That's what Kyuubey explained it away at first. A Culexus, without her suit activated to blunt and focus her abilities, would make any Magical Girl around her react in a...violently messy way, before becoming completely and utterly incapacitated. Normal, mundane folk would simply feel uncomfortable, or oddly aggressive against the Culexus herself. [1/2]
>>26286000Decu doesn't really hold to his own time limit except for big breakpoints or writeins.
>>26286061With the suit on and activated, this effect would of course be countered, but...as you personally found out, its efficacy is quite varied, differing from Magical Girl to Magical Girl. For some it blocked out the effects completely, while in others it simply reduced it to a tolerable sense of nausea. To you, well - if the Culexus sitting beside you had her hardsuit's setting set to anything less than its maximum blocking capability, then you'd be ruining the blouse you're wearing with the pancakes you had for breakfast earlier.Well, you're not making a mess of yourself now, so Malal must have been considerate enough to do that without you asking.Still, it couldn't hurt to check.You tap at her shoulderplate - a spiked metal pad with her trademark skull symbol imprinted on the molded surface. The Culexus makes a small noise in her helmet, and you see your face reflected on her visor as she turns to look at you."What, you're not going to call Kyoko again, Sayaka? It's only been thirty minutes since your last call." Her helmet's vox-speaker, digitizing her voice and robbing it of all warmth, makes her little joke sound like a future robot overlord mocking you. You hate that voice. "...You must be very bored to talk to me, though. Usually you're watching me from ten paces away, with the biggest frown on your face."What? No. ...No, you don't do that. What's she talking about?"...If you say you don't, you don't." Malal nods slightly, but even the amusement in her voice couldn't be erased by her vox speaker completely. "Well, what do you want to talk about? Probably about the mission or something, right? Ask away." A moment. "Oh, you're probably wondering about my suit, huh? Don't worry, I'm not going to make you blow chunks all over the stewardess."...Y-yeah. Beside you, Kirika lets out a lofty chuckle. "Ha-ha! ....Blow!"What do you ask Malal?
>>26286081[x] What are her thoughts on Girl A?
>>26286081[X] "Any reason why the Warmaster's Equerry has to deliver a Culexus Hardsuit personally?"
>>26286081>Beside you, Kirika lets out a lofty chuckle. "Ha-ha! ....Blow!"lel[x] Who thought it would be a good idea to have Kirika along and give her drinks?
>>26286081Ask about the modified hardsuit and about how long she expects this is going to take.
>>26286081[X] What are your thoughts on Girl A
>>26286081[x] Ask about the Culexus suit we're delivering, whats so special about it?
>>26285730You don't even need a twitter account, if you're really against taking the five seconds to get one. Just bookmark Decu's twitter, check it every now and than.But it would make Decu feel more loved if you got an account and followed him.
>>26286081>[x]"Is the suit in any danger of blowing up if its not handled right?"
>>26286111[x] ThisIt would probably be the one thing that puts us a little bit less on edge is to know she isn't a threat. We don't want to hijack a plane over the pacific ocean just to return and kill a single person, but we will.
>>26286164I hardly use my Facebook account, much less Twitter. Thanks for the tip.
>>26286178Honestly if you're into Quests at all Twitter is fantastic for keeping tabs on them.
>>26286165This is important informations
>>26286188As long as you F5 every once in a while. Stupid Twitter not updating for 5 hours at a time...
>>26286081"Is there any chance we can get one of those suits for rank leader here, before she drinks everything on the plane?"
>>26286061Christ, Noriko must be a born culexusAll she needs is the anti magic field and she is set
>>26286081What's the situation and objectives on the groundAlso anywhere we could get a proper cowboy hat that she knows of
>>26286081>[x] What are her thoughts on Girl A?she's highly volatile.
>>26286312I'm really sorry about that. I just couldn't let that comment slide.
>>26286342That Chiaki's fetish is holding hands.I obviously had to take that and run with it.
>>26286342Someone made a comment that murderface is into holding hands. In response to pic.
>>26286361The depths that one can sink to..
>>26286361Lotta sick people in this town.
Hey, not exactly applicable for this time frame, but apparently NECO is following Kyoko and Midori. This shit is getting to stalker levels here.https://twitter.com/mgsarerealAlso, apparently Midori is getting paranoid about our association with Iori and NECO's assistant is a goddamn ninja or something because she's just fucking listening in.
>>26286454>"are Minase-san and Chiaki-senpai close? i heard she calls a lot" "ahahaha no murderface thinks its really creepy">"the best way to get in good with murderface is uh probably to not do anything Minase-san does" and now she's making some weird otaku
>>26286454The latest batch of updates there is what inspired this one >>26286369Also, from the way that batch opened up, it didn't seem like she was following them. More like she had the car bugged and was going over the recordings at a later time.
>>26286454We can use this to mess with Midori.
>>26286454"getting" paranoid would imply that Midori doesn't already get weird and huffy whenever she thinks we're too familiar with another girl.
>>26286476I approve of anything related to messing with Midori.Let's tell her we saw Iori in a swimsuit and thought it was interesting, then see what happens.
>>26286454Hey, what if for every person that follows NECO on twitter, the more followers she'll gain on Chirpee and the more her news will spread and the less likely we can contain it?>NECO has 52, followers on Twitter, 38 of which have been gained within 24 hours of the last thread.
>>26286503not to mention the people without an account.
>>26286361>Chiaki's fetish is holding hands.She is very sensitive intimacy-wise.Also, finally finished watching the main anime series. Onto the spinoffs!
>>26286520>Spinoffs>Kazumi and Oriko mangasAnon, brace yourself for disappointment and more.
>>26286503If that's how it works then by following her in real life we're making things harder for our character! Diabolical!
>>26286497>my mission was pretty terrible, except for the swimsuit part>the idols do keep themselves in good shape>Iori didn't look half badEasy as fuck.
>>26286520no anon don't do it
>>26286536More because I'm bored and the more I know about the PMMM-verse, the better.Shamefur as it is, I rarely read manga/ watch anime nowadays.
>>26286557They're not worth it.
You know, reading NECO's twitter just makes me want to see what the hell Kyoko and Midori have been up to all this time even more.
>>26286503>>26286541Oh god. If we decide to go after the Chirpee leak in-character, it means that everyone who follows it may become a target as well.. Our faces when the Ninth sends a squad of hit meguca and kills us, the readers.[/spoilers]
>>26286575Oriko was okay, Kazumi was a clusterfuck.The Different Story is great though.
>>26286582Midori has probably been interrogating Kyoko about what Chiaki likes
>>26286582I smell fodder for another flashback thread.
>>26286485To be fair, that's only happened once so far. She got really jealous of how quickly Chiaki hit it off with Kharn, and that's been the only instance so far. From her internal dialogue during the barrier arc, we do know that she feels ridiculously insecure about how much Chiaki likes Mami. The other instance that might count is when she got drunk and stole Wendy's panties to confront us about later.
>>26286597>It only happened once>Well I guess it happened three times
>>26286594Kazumi was the whatthefuckamireading.jpg version of Madoka except everyone was completely unmemorable.
>>26286597>>26286609Green-eyed, green-haired succubus. With insecurity issues and far too awkward for someone that tall.
>>26286589Lets hope they at least have the decency to rape us first before they eat our livers.Dying unraped would be the worst.
>>26286609Cut me some slack. I've only slept three hours here, hahaha.
>>26286597Girl has self esteem issues. It probably doesn't help that we tease her so much either. Though it's hard to stop having that much fun.
>>26286628GREEN HAIR IS THE DANGER
>>26286597>MamiShe's more 'mother' than 'love interest'.Mami/Chiaki pseudo-incest fapfic when?
>>26286649See I need to know the context of this! Was NECO almost caught by Midori while spying on them or what?
>>26286653Xiombarg's Storyteller doesn't write for /tg/ anymore.
>>26286594Kazumi was okay until they started to throw the retarded plot-twists at you that didn`t make no sense whatsoever. Calling it asspulling would be a major understatement. That said, I liked the part about group of Magical Girls breaking apart due to teenage backstabbery. If the author left that part in and just removed the stupid plot twists it might have been good.
>>26286653>She's more 'mother' than 'love interest'.Yeah, but Midori doesn't know that, does she? >>26286628>>far too awkward for someone that tall.Makes me want to do another one with someone as Lilith. Thinking Pinky there. At any rate, Midori (and Sayaka, who's the same height as her) are only tall compared to other japanese girls. Must be awkward standing out in the Officio, at least for Midori and all her insecurities. Don't think Sayaka actually minds.
>>26286679Well look on the bright side. We'll probably get to kill the entire Kazumi cast throughout this quest. It'll be cathartic.
>>26286679I was amused at Kyubey managing to troll everybody even when nobody was able to sense him at all.
>>26286670More like a mix between Ruri having too clean of a record and Midori allegedly having godlike acting skills.Both of them have green hair, soo..
>>26286687>PinkyLilithNo no no it's gotta be Chiaki.
>>26286122 >>26286134 >>26286137 >>26286165 >>26286174"Diligent as always, huh, Sayaka?" Malal chuckles, before nodding once more. "Well, it's not exactly classified, so I suppose telling you about it isn't going to hurt anyone." She taps at her tablet, and turns it towards you. Showing you a picture of a...rather sickly-looking girl in a bloody, grimy hospital gown, her white hair unruly and disheveled. The picture's grainy, as if it'd been taken with an old-fashioned film camera and someone fucked up the job of developing it."Sabrina Blackburn. The Eighth contracted her some time ago, they're not really too clear on that. But what is clear is that her Wish turned her into a biological hazard." A horizontal swipe of a gloved finger on the screen, and the next image makes you wince and turn away - it's a picture of the same girl, standing in the middle of a...well, there are just a lot of decomposing corpses in the shot, with most of the corpses wearing SWAT gear. "Melts and decomposes biological matter just by being around it. Anything - wood, paper, even human flesh, just starts to rot in her presence. And it's not something that she can control - it's just what happens. She doesn't even need to be transformed to do it."Another swipe, this time showing the girl huddled in the corner of a rusted prison cell, with the bars all eaten through. "They tried locking her away while they figured out what to do. As it turns out, get her anxious enough and she can make metal rust into powder in no time flat, too." It's here that you detect a hint of melancholy in the Culexus' voice. "The Eighth threw her into a Silent Room afterwards. ...She's been locked away inside it for more than a year."An entire year? More than that, even? You couldn't even stay in the same room for an hour.[1/2]
>>26286720"Yes, well, you can imagine how she feels, right?" You could her the smirk in Malal's voice. "I got in touch with one of their Eversors - one of them seems to be smart enough to figure out that you can't solve everything just by shoving ." Kirika laughs at this, chuckling 'Fuck you, Malal' into her drink. "We decided that since Sabrina's powers work the same way as a Culexus does, then a hardsuit would probably work. After a few modifications, and all." She turns the tablet's screen back to her, tapping a few times. "Don't worry, it's not anything experimental. Nothing that could blow up in our faces or anything like that. And we'll be doing it inside the Silent Room where she's in, so if it doesn't work..." She shrugs. "It doesn't work. No one gets reduced to mush."Well, why does she have to be the one to bring it over? Certainly this could've been done by anyone else in the Officio--"I designed the Culexus Hardsuit," Malal says patiently. "Well, with some help from R&D. But I know the design in and out, and I can help out a lot in making sure the mods work." Another vox-corrupted chuckle. "And before you ask, yes, this is sort of us trying to establish relations with another Officio. A first meeting on friendly terms."...Shouldn't the Warmaster be here, then? Is Kharn slacking off again?"Did YOU think Kharn didn't want to tag along?" Malal tilts her helmet towards you. "She was livid when I told her that she couldn't go. Sulked in her office the entire week. I had to do the daily inspections myself!"But...but why--"The Eighth Warmaster and her Equerry are blonde," The Culexus states flatly.Ah. Well.That's...yes.God dammit, Kharn.[2/3]
>>26286727"This shouldn't take all that long, though." Malal shrugs as she places her tablet on her pull-down tray. "Probably two days, tops. We'll be back before you can even start missing Kyoko."...That's...that's good news, but you weren't thinking of--"If you say you're not, you're not. I'm just saying it as a point of reference."Right. Okay."Save your breath, Mal," Kirika giggles. "Miki's got it hard for Sakura, although I can't fucking discern WHY. She's already missed her the moment they had to kiss each other goodbye." She cackles at this, the scent of alcohol strong in her breath.N-no, no. That's... You feel your cheeks heat up, and you inwardly grimace at how Kirika's doing this kind of shit again: a kind of humiliating ribbing that could only be inflicted on a junior by a particularly sadistic senior. And she's done this to you many times, already - from having you challenge other Eversors from other Officios to a sparring match, to running errands that would make a lesser Eversor just break their own Soul Gem underfoot.You still haven't forgotten the time when Kirika had you slap Mami on her bottom, completely out of the blue.Someday, you'll pay her back for it. All of it. Someday.You were waiting for Malal to get her cackles in, but all you got was another stare, before turning back to her tablet."Must be nice to be missed by someone," You hear her vox-speaker crackle. "Everyone should have someone that misses them when they're away.". . .Well. At least you know why you're on this milk run.What do you do now?Ask Malal something else.Let Malal do her work. Ask Kirika something.Other.
>>26286670either way, i want to see what happens- what the hell are we going to tell iori after this? We cant exactly hide Midori from her anymore
>>26286742[x]Ask Malal something else."So you invented the suit, huh? What did Culexus do before that?"
>>26286742So that's why she helped us retire Kirika.[X] Ask Malal about Girl A
>>26286727>She was livid when I told her that she couldn't go. Sulked in her office the entire week. I had to do the daily inspections myself!"Sulking Kharn is adorable
>>26286700Was it really acting skills? I have no fucking clue what NECO was thinking about Midori there other than her making otaku noises.
>>26286771I suspect they were solo operatives. Or only worked with other Culexus.>>26286773[x] This
>>26286742[x]"What about you then? You don`t think the Warmaster misses you in her completly messed up sort of way?"
>>26286773Seconding.[x] Ask Malal about Girl A
>>26286825It wouldn't suprise me if Kharn didn't even bother geting dressed the entire time Malal was away.
>>26286771>>26286773>>26286825[x] Those three combined. Wee need to know everything. EVERYTHING.
>>26286793NECO probably thinks that nobody can be that awkward and bashful and shy and hhnnnnnnng.
>>26286742>[X]Ask Malal something else.Either about the suits or her thoughts on Girl Aalso, we possibly ruined her pay back against Kirika?
>>26286793NECO @MGsAreReal 24 Jul>nyauauauauau i need to remember some of this, i bet people eat this stuff up. maybe Hanegawa is just a rly good Callidus actress??Maybe NECO is insinuating that Midori isn't as innocent as she looks/acts.
>>26286742[X] Ask Malal about Girl A
>>26286549>>26286575Ehh, I might go for the movies instead.>>26286628Yes.>>26286742[X] Ask her about the Eighth Officio.
>>26286835>Kharn strutting around the officio in just her underwear and Hatso many wet panties
>>26286852I think Midori's been through waaaaaaaay too much for it to all be just a ruse. I'd assume it's to do with some situation her and Kyoko got in to in their investigation that required her to act.
>>26286860Every now and then she wanders into the Culexus floor and asks the first one she sees if she is Malal>No god dammit, stop asking.
>>26286899>Kharn pouting in her throne over missing Malal, wearing nothing but the hat, while her legion of fangirls try to cheer her up.
>>26286899>Every now and then she wanders into the Culexus floor and asks the first one she sees if she is MalalThis mental image is kind of adorable, hahaha. >>26286774I should really go back and redo this one just so I can stop cringing every time it gets posted.
>>26286929Or could just stop cringing and appriciate how much you`ve improved since then?
>>26286906God, I wish I had the money to commission certain choice pieces of art from Decu....
oh boy. Who's begging that the suit is going to malfunction and Sayaka's going to have to patch it up while her body's rotting and regenerating?
>>26286774>>26286929Ionno man, Kharn looks pretty cute when she's upset like that.
>>26286860I can see her wandering around in a blanket like someone who has a fever.
>>26286963How do you commission art from Decu? And about how much does it cost? I've got a few ideas for things I'd like to see drawn...GOTTA GET THAT 100 SPXP IN HQR
>>26286852>>26286866NECO doesnt seem to know the details about Siberia so it seems like kind of a natural thing for her to think. We know that midori is legit but people on the outside probably get the wrong idea pretty easily.
>>26286986>under the blanket is underwear>on top is the hatdrawfags pls
>>26286986Perhapse she gets worse over time. She starts off in just the hat, so at least she can pretend to be being sexy not lazy, but by the end she's gone full hikki look.
>>26286968I would if we hadn't already seen them working the kinks out of it in a write up before
>>26286990I know from his Twitter that it costs 10 dollars.But I don't know how he wants to get the money sent.
>>26286990I remember one of his recent twitter posts being about the price. I think it was $15?
>>26287000For that you need to contact Deculture directlyThen you can work out the details
>>26287000>>26287001Oh, excellent. I've got $20 lying around.DECUUU HOW DO I GIVE YOU MY MONEYS
>>26287010Oh god. I had this idea for a picture, but there's two people in it so it'd cost more than what I can send.
>>26287010He prefers paypal
>>26286963Decu's a pretty affordable drawfag. Replace a few meals with ramen and boom.
>>26287053Decu explodes if he eats ramen?
>>26286899>>Every now and then she wanders into the Culexus floor and asks the first one she sees if she is Malal
>>26287070Moon physiology. Don't question it.
>>26287039Well, shit. I dont have paypal, only Credit Card ot International Bank-Transfer. Time to sulk.
>>26287083>wearing clothesno no nonothing but a blanket
>>26287093You can send cash through paypal using a credit card.
>>26286852I could easily pull something like that off.
>>26287130Wait, so does the credit card company keep a record of what you buy via Paypal?
>>26287150They keep a record of everything forever anyway.So, yes.
>>26287150Be honest anon, what did you buy and how lewd was it?
>>26287161Oh, I bet it was someone holding hands.
>>26287176Anon p-please, this is a blue board, don't post such hardcore triple X suggestions!
>>26286771 >>26286773 >>26286825You turn to Malal again. If she invented the suit, then...what'd Culexus do before that?"You're still talking to me?" Malal seems to be surprised, here, before chuckling as she shakes her head. "Well, let's see. From what I remember from Kyuubey, they ended up as isolated agents. Solo missions only - no one could last long enough around them to actually work together." It's here that she looks down at her own gloved hands, resting on top of her tablet. "...Some girls couldn't take it anymore and just did away with them the old-fashioned way. Retired them even without the notice. Others, well, they retired themselves. Couldn't handle the fact that their wish made them into something that made people around them sick enough to hate them."A moment of silence, before Malal turns to look at you, once more. "They didn't last very long, is what I'm trying to get at. Even those who isolated themselves from others became prime targets for normal folk, you know? Yakuza and such can't get affected. They don't see a Magical Girl, they just see someone in a costume and somehow she makes them really, really angry. Guess what they do to her when she runs out of ammo?". . ."Exactly." Malal shrugs. "Soon after I made the prototype, we offered to distribute it to other Officios. Kyuubey put a price tag on it, shrewd little bastard. Of course we got a lot of offers, despite being marked up to hell and back." She taps the piece of tough-looking luggage under her seat. "Resting my ass on ten million yen of cutting edge technology and premium grade leather, here."Ten million yen, huh. That's...kind of expensive, isn't it?[1/2]
>>26287200"Only for those who can afford it," Malal grins. "Kyuubey lets me hand over a few suits for free, from time to time. Special cases only. Other officios can afford the price tag easily enough." She shakes her head. "No one needs to suffer like those girls did. Not anymore."You can't help but think that you're digging too deep, here, so you try to change the subject.What does she think about Girl A?"What do I think about Girl A?" Malal echoes you, her helmet's vox speaker crackling. "Well, now. I was wondering when you'd ask about her." She drums her fingers on her tablet's ruggedized casing. "Hmm. Where to begin? There's so much to talk about her that I suddenly don't know how to put it across..."She can start with her opinion of her, anyway."Hah. Well." Malal chuckles. "I...well, I think she's a strange case. No Officio's owned up to her. She's not in our registry, Kyuubey swears up and down that no Incubator on the planet's contracted her...and you found her in a Barrier of a Witch that should, by rights, should have had her for a snack even before you got there." She nods to herself. "She's someone special, this Girl A. It'd be good for us to find out who she is and where she came from - and get her to join us."But what if she turns out to be a spy? Inter-Officio spies aren't unheard of, and she could be one of them."...If she is, she used one hell of a cover." The Culexus laughs, as if finding the entire thing funny.You don't find it funny at all.[2/3]
>>26287200"I know you don't," The helmeted girl replies. "But I've got a good feeling about her." She taps the side of her helmet's visor. "As long as she doesn't try anything stupid, we'll treat her as a rescued POW, not a prisoner."But what about the thing with Kyuubey--"Reflex, probably. Trauma. It's obvious." Malal shrugs. "She wasn't aiming right at you, she was aiming at Kyuubey. I'm apologizing to you at her behalf. Just...be more careful, next time.""Sayaka-chan's just angry she got Kyuubeykakke'd," Kirika giggles beside you, her glass of whisky sloshing about in her hand. "Was it hard to wash out of your hair? It was, wasn't it?"...Yes. Yes it was."Aww. Poor thing." She shoves the glass of whisky in your hand - it's half-full. "Here, drink this. You'll feel better." The raven-haired Eversor grins lewdly at you. "And that's an ORDER.". . .What do you do?
>>26287214Hold our nose, and bottoms up.
>>26287214[X]Give her a withering glare and then drink it. Not like she can get Sayaka intoxicated.
>>26287214[x] Drink.Also, Kirika strikes me as being the 'evil twin' to Kharn. Both are womenising, grandstanding, party hard types, but Kharn is good to her friends and saves her sadistic side for battle, while Kirika takes it out on her underlings.
>>26287214[x] Try to drink some, then cough and splutter and spill it.>>26287228>>26287238ITS DRUGGED YOU FOOLS
>>26287214[x] Drink itI hope it's good whisky.
>>26285463>Kirika>slapped the beverage cart girl and the stewardesses two times each on the ass alreadyWOAH.
- Rank Leader Malal's tears can cure cancer. unfortunately, she's never cried.Seriously NEKO?>>26287253It's also in the past. We can't die no matter what as that creates a paradox.
>>26287277http://pastebin.com/H9xpdAQ1http://pastebin.com/SkZFdHQthttp://pastebin.com/vFV7XcSP>Those profiles>NECO has met at least all three of them at some point, and took one out to dinnerWelp finding out who she is just got a lot easier.
>>26287310Let's hope Sayaka remembers her when we continue.
>>26287214>[x]DrinkMight as well drink it. We are in full sight of Malal anyway
>>26287214[X] sniff the drink and politely decline.maybe ask what miss Oriko would think if she saw her now.drinking and slapping ass, that stuff.
>>26287277Yes, but it might result in severe embarrassment and/or sexual assault.
>>26287351Malal is right there.
>>26287310the hell, NECO has been at it long.
>>26287214[X] Down the hatch.
>>26287349It was an order. From our direct superior.>>26287345>>26287358Will she care?
>>26287358Yes, exactly.Our drunken self will no doubt think she's really cute underneath that helmet and get gropy.
>>26287214Drink it - wait for the flight to end.
>>26287382And then, vomity.
>>26287392That is a sexy outfit on Sallaka.
>>26287405She can be sexy when she's told to be.
Are we on a commercial flight? What sort of looks did Malal get at the airport? What does her passport photo look like?
>>26287214DrinkTurn out to be the biggest lightweight ever and rant on about our girlfriend trying to eat our marshmallow coobie flavored hair this morning
>>26287435I'm surprised we're not taking a private jet.
>>26287405Sallaka is always sexy.
>>26287435Don't Culexus also have some kind of effect on the memory of normal people when they meet? Malal said that's why Midori didn't remember her when she say her in the past.
>>26287392Oh, neat. Love Sayaka's outfit, as others have said.
>>26287448So now that we're in Sallakaquest all the Sallafags appear.secretly okay with this
>>26287447Private jets tend not to have the range for Japan-US flights.
>>26287392every time i think of Malal all i see is Dan Kim's picture of her. omg all my boners.
>>26287435That's a good question. Depending on when she got it, with the helmet on or like Madoka.
>>26287468I'd love if Dan Kim did more MGNQ stuff but at least doing that Malal was really awesome.
>>26287468>Malal>bonersI'm going to need to see this because reasons.
Stupid sexy Malal.
>>26287467I dare say the mutant cat alien could afford private jets that could reach that far and have mid air refuelling organized if he wanted
>>26287558>Nobody suspected>Sensible red herrings>Blindingly obvious in hindsight, we even saw a picture of her and didn't know it was her early onBest MGNQ reveal ever.
Detailing Mami's hair took a lot more energy than I thought so I'll take a break here. Probably a lot of changes since the last time you guys saw it. At any rate, guess I'll do some more simple coloring until I feel like working on Mami again.
>>26287585Fukn drills, aye?
>>26287214[x]Drink. We can at least hold our liquor a little, and we might as well save our defiance points for bigger fish.
>>26287585mami needs bigger... mamis
>>26287570>Dat sex hair>Dem eyesMy boners are infinite
>>26287585Mirai is reaching for the ramen butt.
>>26287200>>26287207>Malal made the Culexus suits>She practically ran the Ninth>Not even death could stop herJesus christ, is there anything she CAN'T do?Other than make Kharn accept responsibility for her actions of course
>>26287615The awkward feeling when you have the same name as the person that was drawn for.
>>26287607I think that's just the art style.
>>26287594Aye.>>26287607I thought they were fine? I'll be sure to give the sketch another revision before I start detailing, I guess.
>>26287623not awkward at all. not at all
>>26287623We call that a boner, son. It's natural.
>>26287631They need to be twice as Mami.
>>26287650They need to be at least pic related.
>>26287631They need to be full of hopes and dreams.
>>26287674>>26287650Canon Mami's breasts are only a bit bigger than Sayaka's.
>>26287674People say a Mami end in this quest wouldn't be that great because their relationship is more maternal, and I think I agree.But then I see this picture.......
>>26287692Mami end would be her adopting Chiaki as a family member. I would accept nothing else.
>>26287689Yes. And they still are a miracle of the universe.
>>26287692Mami end would just be Homura/Chiaki imprinting on someone and falling in love with them 5ever like she did with Madoka in the show when she was nice to her.
post more Mami while we wait.
>>26287768>as expected of breastsno madoka that is not correct
>>26287739How about her hips instead?
>>26287783Best when moving on their own.
Have a bunny mumi
can i get some OL Mami?>captcha: tremendous Iwantem
>>26287685THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU SAID THE OTHER NIGHT!I'M SO CONFUSED NOW.
>>26287228 >>26287238 >>26287252 >>26287257You look down at the solitary ice cube swimming in the strong-smelling glass of dark amber liquid....Urgh. You're...you're not a drinker. Sure, you can understand why Magical Girls, more often than not, turned to the drink to try and forget what they've done and seen on the job - but you could never understand why they'd get into the stuff like salarymen, drinking enough to necessitate being carried out by their friends before they made a scene. Drinking enough that they'd turn up the next day late, weary and hungover, unable to explain to you with a straight face why exactly they felt to do such a thing to themselves."Stop bullying Sayaka, Kirika," Malal says, but if anything, that only made the Eversor beside you smile even wider. "What? Bullying? Perish the thought, Equerry!" Kirika scoffs, here. "I'm just trying to get Sayaka to relax, that's all. And the quickest way to do that is to get a few shots inside her. Right, Sayaka-chan?" You feel her elbow dig into your side. "Your sempai's got your best interests in mind, right?"...Right. You shoot Kirika a dirty look, before jerking away from her elbow and downing the shot in one sharp gulp. Even the half-melted ice cube, which you hastily crunch on the way down.Khh. This is why you don't drink. No matter what you do, it always tastes like gasoline. Burning your throat all the way through, to settle with a painful warmth at the pit of your stomach.You manage not to cough the rest of it out as you hack and wheeze and try to breathe through a scorched throat. Kirika cackles here, slapping her tray and making the empty one-shot bottles rattle and clink, while Malal herself only shakes her head.Handing back the glass to Kirika - who immediately refills it and knocks it back, grinning all the while, a grin you staunchly ignore - it's here that you resume your conversation with the Culexus.[1/2]
>>26286454Do Iori and Midori at the same time. Then tell Ruri who Green Green is and do Midori again. Then Chiaki can HOLD HANDS with Midori
>>26287855Doesn't she think that the Warmaster misses her? Even in her own twisted way?"...She only misses me because I'm the only one she can boss around without feeling bad," Malal chuckles from behind her helmet. "Anyway, that's neither here or there. I'm not lonely, if that's what you're wondering." She nods, more to herself than to you. "...Yeah. Not lonely at all."If she says she's not, she's not."Hah!" Malal snorts at this reversal, before flipping her tablet back up into her gloved hands. Resuming whatever she was doing before you started talking to her. Awkward silence aside, you've learned a lot, now. You don't have anything else to talk about with the Culexus.What do you do now?Talk to Kirika.Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)
>>26287877>Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)No idea what to ask her. 's not like she's coherent in the first place.
>>26287877>[X]Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)
Hot off the presses from /a/.
>>26287877[x]Try and nap through the most of the flight.Booze should help. If Stabby McSlaughterBitch wants something she can wake us.We're totally waking up with a permanent marker moustache, aren't we?
>>26287877>Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)Kirika a shit
>>26287877[x] TimeskipLets not talk to the dead Lunatic, it will only drain our Sanity-Points.
>>26287877>>[X]Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)
>>26287877>[x]Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)Fuck Kirika. How Mami can stand to be friends with her is beyond me.
>>26287877>[X]Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)we COULD ask how Oriko is doing but Kirika is kinda a bitch, abusing rank and all that.
>>26287877[x]Talk to Kirika. Ask her if that special friend of hers would approve of all the drinking and ass-slapping.
>>26287898what?What is this?
>>26287877>[x]Talk to Kirika.Fuck all of you. We must dissent. >heretic brityuCaptcha, sometimes you scare me.
>>26287877[X] Talk to KirikaLet's see what our lush of a master has to say.
>>26287898It looks like someone was trying too hard and came out mediocre.Thus it fits /a/ perfectly.
>Not wanting to talk to Kirika just because she's a jerk>She's a hot jerkCome onnnnn
>>26287933Meduka Souls I wager.
>>26287898>Poorfag was poor even at the beginning of time
>>26287955She started out with nothing, ended with less.
>>26287877[x]Talk to Kirika.How's she feeling about cross-continental travel then?
>>26287946/tg/ gets straight edge at the weirdest times and/or being a drunk is only cool when Murderface does it.
>>26287946Kirika da bess, people just have awful taste.
>>26287877[x]This, ask her about Oriko and if she'd approve of her crap.>>26287930
>>26287966Even at the very end when Madoka fixed the Witch problem, Poorfag gained nothing. True healing.
>>26287877[x] nap through the rest of the flight
>>26287877Talk to KirikaSee what she is doing besides cheating on her girlfriend with random stewardesses
>>26287980We're playing as Sayak now and she doesn't approve of that stuff. Stay in character anon.
>>26287877>[x]Try and nap through the most of the flight. (Timeskip)
>>26287877[x] TimeskipWe don't actually have anything to talk to Kirika ABOUT unless we want to bug her about the Eighth or stewardess butts.
>>26288034We can ask what she thinks about the trip.
>>26288064I'd rather timeskip and get to the meat of the flashback, actually.
>Talk to Kirika>"God Kirika, why are you such a bitch?">Kirika dies laughing that of all people, Sayaka is asking this.
>>26288034We're her protege; she's supposed to be teaching us how to pull swords from cakes and shit. Instead she's getting chocolate wasted and feeling up stewardesses like it's 1979.
>>26288022Being in character is why Sayaka doesn't want to be drinking, not why she wouldn't be talking to Kirika at all. >>26288074This is a good reason though.
>>26288086I just realised the biggest insult we could deliver to Sayaka is to compare her to Kirika.
>>26288109The only memories Chiaki has of Kirika are a) BATSHIT BUGFUCK BALLSTOTHEWALLS INSANE and b) Gold Weapon.Which she's probably going to acquire on this trip.Fuck.
>>26288109We should write that down. Might end up in sickbay for a while though, getting our limbs reattached.
>>26288103I don't think a plane trip is the time to teach us to swords and shit anyway, and if you look at what she's doing? She does not seem to care much about imparting deep advice right now.Kirika is an asshole and even Sallaka kind of thinks so.But also>>26288074
We'll probably have plenty of time to see more of Kirika later. Come on, KirikaQuest, Deculture. You know you want to.
>>26288074I actually voted to talk to her but I'm forced to agree, especially since there's not much of interest which Kirika could say. Which actually makes me suspicious, like, what if it's supposed to look unlikely that she could say nothing but bitchy stuff? When in fact she has something really profound and insightful to share, or maybe even something that could be an important plot point? "Kirika, why are you such a huge bitch?""Autumn leaves and spring chicks both fall from the same tree.""...What?"
>>26288128We got all our memories back at the end of the barrier arc.
[X]Talk to Kirika.
Well I have to ditch.Remember guys, Santa Destroy is a wonderful place of death and destruction. Feel free to get into barfights at the drop of a hat, so long as you can make friends while you're there!
>>26288162>Which actually makes me suspicious, like, what if it's supposed to look unlikely that she could say nothing but bitchy stuff?A whole new breed of shadowruns, eh.
>>26288163No we didn't. We're still missing a lot of information, like everything involving Walpurgis and Malal's death.
>>26288175So...Basically Kirika will fit right in here.
>>26288139Sallaka is kind of an asshole and we near unanimously decided to have this flashback with her, so I fail to see your point. And the thread's near Chikuwa anyway, so we have time for both next thread.
>>26288206>we near unanimously decided to have this flashback with herI wanted MalalQuest.But Malal is here with us so that's good enough I guess.
>>26288206>>26288218I was just sick of Ruri.
>>26288257I both love and hate Ruri in equal measure. She's interesting.
>>26288257>Being sick of Ruripleb
>5 hours later and we only have 290 postsWhat is this sorcery that keeps MGNQ out of autosage this long!?
>>26288316Deculture's writing speed, mostly.
>>26288257how shit can your taste get
>>26288257Weak/10>>26288342And nothing to argue about.
>>26288316don't worry, soon enough we'll find something to be paranoid about and tear in to it like a pack of wild dogs.
>>26288320Is she slowly turning into technoc'thulhu?
>>26288363I have a feeling that it will be related to the present of the quest. The may or may not be the real Ruri corpse was found in Santa Destroy about two years ago right? And this flashback is almost two years ago.
>>26288396What if Kirika is the magic girl ex of Ruri
>>26288405i got a feeling that the rifle she was assembling belonged to her MG lover
>>26288396considering how things have gone, I wouldn't be surprised if it happened in this flash back.maybe Ruri fell in love with Kirika or in the most extreme case, Malal?
>>26288416Naw, the rifle belonged to some family member. Decu confirmed it in one of the Q&A/
>>26287935Sister Miriam, please stay and remain stay.
>>26287946You know, /tg/, as we are a gaming people, do you not always have the urge to talk to everyone? Get the maximum content?
>>26288442well that makes no sense at all.
>>26288474Yeah, but if we go completionist with Deculture's writing speed it'll take three years to get back to the plot.
Also, if the corpse is really Ruri, what if she did fall in love with Kirika, and Kirika accidentaly killed her in a lovers quarrel?
>SabrinaAm I getting rused here? Her last name was not blackborn, right?
>>26288519Oh right. True.
>>26288527the start of Kirika's downward spiral in to madness?
>>26288527>lover's quarrel>not during a drunken sex accident
>>26288529No it was Spellman.
>>26288547Too bad. I thought I spotted the reference there.
>>26288547Don't you love it when anons read your mind.
>>26288529>Sabrina BlackburnClose but no.
>>26288576>>26288586Salem would make a loveably pathetic incubator.
>>26288601A black Incubator.
>>26288612It's not impossible. Juubey is half black.
>>26288623So is Eightball. In spirit, anyway.
>>26288644>Suddenly see the 8th Incubator as GarterbeltDECU PLZ
>>26288669Then who was Stockings?And when does the betrayal happen?
>>26288696A name in Kharns panty collection.
>>26288696Maybe Panty and Stocking are actual 8th Officio MGs? They'd certainly fit right in.
>>26288696Coobs.It isn't Noir unless you're being hunted by your own boss.
>>26288696Last thirty seconds of MGNQ.
>>26288712my my, that's a high resolution.
>>26288696>who was StockingsWell that one seems obvious.
>>26288720"Actually I work for Juubei."
Finished coloring in Malal.
Also a few threads back someone asked why I draw everyone individually. It's so that I can resist the urge to "cover up" details and can treat each character individually, allowing me to make neat profile shots for each one. Case in point.Next version should be cleaned up for transparency.
Meanwhile in the main storyline~
>>26288822Giant metal vagina.
And playing around with layers a bit. Barrier Arc Rescue Team. Been my favorite part of MGNQ so far, most definitely. ...Kinda disturbing that 2 out of 3 are dead, isn't it?
>>26288831Can't be. Midori and Wendy haven't met yet.
>its been almost an hour and a half since deculture posted lastfuck is it time to call him back guys?
>>26288840And sad. Malal is one of the best characters. Good thing we have all these flashbacks.
>>26288840they are missed.
>>26288854Maybe he fell asleep at his keyboard again.
>>26288854Probably just taking extra time to do a long intro post for the American Officio.
>>26288840Well that was mostly our faultDoubt Malal was coming home with us either way but Mirai was definitely our fuckup
>>26288854I think he might have fallen asleep ad the keyboard
>>26288838Obviously Malal knows what happened in the previous timelines, and took extreme measures to keep Homura out of there.
>>26288840Technically all three died, but Midori and maybe Malal seem hard to keep down.
>>26288364No, she has a clone that became infected with a massive technovirus.
>>26288879Things to do in this timeline:Word wish very carefully.Stop Sayaka witching out.Return that library book on time.Purchase Homu proof chastitiy belt.
>>26288903Ruri is Calne Ca?Even better!
Shall I go ahead and archive now instead of later?
Is it possible that Malal is still in Chiaki's or Kharn's Soulgem? IIRC somewhere it said that really strong Culexus can "empty" their soulgems into another MG's Soulgem.
>>26288921I'd say archive now, not like it can't be updated.
>>26288912>Purchase Homu proof chastitiy belt.No such thing.
>>26288890Oh, fair point! I'd nearly overlooked that detail. Well, that's that for now. Don't have anything else to post, except for this one that's going to need some more work until I'm satisfied
>>26288923>Malal inside Chiaki's soulgem.>Using magical Wifi to access her phonebook diary and such.
>>26288943Malal IS the diary.
>>26288943That makes too much sense.
>>26288943>malal's actually there screwing around cause shes bored.>simply wonder whether we will ever notice and if so if we will ever do anything about it.
>>26288932>handholding naked on bedJesus Christ.Chiaki's breasts could use some work though yes.
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questthread is archived, July 2013, it is somewhere near the bottom/middle of the list.
>>26288963We've never had to recharge our phone right? If we open it will we find a soul gem where the battery should be?
>>26288943I would believe it 100%. She just doesn't show herself, unlike the crazed version.
>>26288981i wonder if at this point shes just wondering what in the shit we did to make her go batfuck in an alternative dimension.
>>26288808I just noticed. The DEagle has no trigger.
>>26288980Disproven I think, our first cellphone got smashed by Kirika so we're using a new one with the same SIM card.
>>26288840Actually only Mirai is definitely dead. Malal is kinda.. around. The Implying Implications where that a part of her is somehow chilling in our Soulgem. And quite frankly, it wouldnt surprise me if those password-protected phone messages we think were from Malal are actually hallucinations thanks to Malal tampering with our head/soul while slurping a Pina Colada inside our soulgem.
>Decu isn't posting because he's despairing that we've figured out major plot points again.
>>26288923While it is unlikely we never saw her actually die nor did we see her be left behind in the barrierAs far as we know Midori left her and Madoka having a little chat when she zoned out, there was never a solid Malal stays behind answerSo >>26288943 is probably right
>>26288963>>26288966>>26288969>>26288981Gives whole new meaning to the NEET business if she is. I mean hell, she's got the world at her fingertips given how technically inclined she is.
>>26288932"S-sempai....""...(You're kind of heavy.)"
>>26288997considering the face that a .50 AE's grip is longer than her fingers, I don't think its that much of an issue...
>>26289002Tiny grain of sand sized soul gem in the SIM card.
>>26289002Nope, it's a new SIM card.From the 22nd thread:>You glance down at your smartphone screen, where Iori and Mami, photographed there, smile up at you.>That went...not as well as you would have hoped, but at least she's alright for now. You're not that worried for her security, either - with Fabiola and three Eversors in the same house as the idol, not even Kirika would have dared.>With that off your shoulders, you take another sip from your glass as you scroll through your contacts. Everyone you know is listed, of course, which makes it just a bit more pitiful, as you could count the entries with both hands and still have plenty of fingers left over.>Barring two that you absolutely have no idea who, of course. The first being [Kaname Madoka], the other [???].>That's strange. You remember seeing them in your old cellphone - the one that Kirika had done away with - but you don't remember putting these in. This isn't even the same sim card.>The hell is going on?
>>26289043>as you could count the entries with both hands and still have plenty of fingers left over.I know that feel Murderface.
>>26289043Wifi Malal innasoulgem obviously.
>>26289005>implying meteors arn't smashing his house around again.remember, deculture does live on the moon, crazy shit happens like that sometimes.
>>26289077Our Soulgem is connected to Midori's soul gem. That's how she was in the barrier with her.
>>26288997Bugger everything. I'll see what I can do to fix that for the next version.
>>26289084I bet the Martians are trying to invade again
>>26289084>>26289106I want to make a follow up to that comic now with Decu fighting the moon rabbits.
>>26289088what if because of that, malal can also harass midori as well?mind you i can imagine her flipping her shit because malal decides to fuck with her and send her random anonymous tips for how to everything that are somehow pertinant to the situation they are in, and probably entirely sarcastic.
>>26289129We mean him no harm. We just want to love him, damn it.
>>26289129"You pesky Usagi, get off my lawn!">TN: Usagi means Rabbit.
>>26289043Holy shit. I wonder if we can have QB check if she is in the phone or our soulgem.That would be one weird phone call to Kharn.>Malal is in my soulgem>We are friends, but I am getting the feeling you want to die by my hands. The panties were funny, but there are some things you do not joke about.>No, seriously, she is in my soulgem.>I see, the stress is too much for you. I will be there shortly to relieve you of your head.And then we need to revive her before Kharn gets to us or we die.
>>26289136I can see Malal doing that. Helping the successor to her position.
>>26289093also, if you draw her with her finger on the trigger I will murder you
>>26289162Does this mean having pregnant Mommy Kharn waddling after us with a chainblade?Because I'm not going to lie, that would be amazing.
>>26289188>tries to transform>tight leather outfit doesn't fit
>>26289188We would get a report of someone breaking into the gold weapons vault. The chain axes are missing.
>>26289183I think I'll keep the finger as is? I mean, I'm no expert, but I keep hearing this "trigger discipline" thing, so I suppose that's something to keep in mind.
>>26287893 >>26287896 >>26287900 >>26287905You decide and settle back and sleep away the best part of the plane ride. It's easy enough to do so - one of the things an Eversor first learns is to be able to fall asleep on demand, whenever and wherever she is. Sure, a Magical Girl can potentially be on active duty for an entire week without sleep, but the human body can only be pushed for so long. Stretch yourself thin enough and you start making mistakes, mistakes that could cost you everything in no time at all. Sleep is important, and Eversors are taught to be able to catch it whenever they can....If you'll be honest, though? That glassful of whisky you just downed is going to make it easier to do so. You're...a bit woozy at the moment. Better to just sleep it off than meet the Eighth Warmaster tipsy and unreliable. Less chance of you making an embarrassment of the Ninth, either.You turn to tell Kirika that you'll be catching some shuteye - only to find that she's already doing the same, snoring rather loudly and making the baby across the aisle wake up and cry. You shake your head at this, and tell Malal instead, who seems to be playing some sort of game on her tablet."Go ahead. We've still got a way to go, anyway." Her helmet reflects your slightly-flushed face. "I'll wake you up when we're there. I'll make sure Kirika doesn't do anything funny, either."That's...yeah. You thank her, before leaning back on your chair and closing your eyes.Hopefully, you won't get that dream again.Goddamn Girl A and the way she worms into other people's dreams.[1/2]
>>26289226keep it outside the trigger guard (like it is currently, along the side of the gun) and all is good, trigger discipline is pretty much the first thing you teach someone learning to shoot, and seeing as Chiaki does love to shoot, one would hope she has a healthy appreciation of the 4 fundamentals (or I will murder Decu)
>>26289248. . .True to Malal's prediction, you did sleep through the entire flight, which is a bit disturbing in its own right. You woke up to her gently shaking your shoulder, and you very nearly screamed as the very first thing you saw upon opening your eyes was her skulled helmet. You managed to stop yourself, then, and with Kirika giggling for some reason, the three of you filed out of the plane along with the rest of its passengers. Getting out of the airport was easy enough - a flash of something that came from Malal's wallet had the airport authorities ushering you through the gates, no questions asked. You didn't even have to pull out your passport."Where's our contact, then?" Kirika asks as you hurry to catch up with them - your sempai having loaded you down with her own luggage. She'd also volunteered you to carry the hardsuit - and it is the heaviest thing you've ever carried. Seriously, you're breathing hard as it is. "They're not expecting us to commute to their headquarters, are they?""They should be just around here, keep a look out." Malal replies, the harsh afternoon light glinting off of her visor as she looks around - and it's then that all three of you turn as you hear the purr of a well-maintained engine eating road, before braking to a stop on the airport driveway.It's...well, it's a nice car. A rather ordinary-looking car, painted in complete black. Typical company car of any Officio, actually, used to mainly transport agents around. ...If anything, you felt a bit let down at this. Where's the American flag, painted in garish colors all over the hood? The ornaments? The bald eagles shrieking? The explosions?The driver's door opens up, and someone climbs out. Someone wearing what looks like a traditional witch outfit - not Witch, that has to be made clear, but a witch, with the black vest, the poofy sleeves and the ankle-long skirt capped with boots. [2/3]
>>26289248HOLY SHIT HE LIVES!
>>26289266TOTALLY AWESOME SWEET ALABAMA LIQUID SNAKE GOOOOOOooo
>>26289294you know even still, every time i hear that name i have a giggle m8
>>26289266Time for TASALShttp://youtu.be/_6L6E7TLy10
>>26289266The only thing missing is the wide-brimmed black hat with the crooked peak - which is, hilariously enough, replaced with a wide-brimmed cowboy hat, a star-shaped buckle with the word SHERIFF engraved on it glinting brightly on its flattened peak. You also spot the leather belt hanging loose on her hips, weighed down by the leather holster where an oversized, double-barreled pistol is sleeping in.And blonde hair. Long, unruly blonde hair, reaching down to her waist, a lock of it braided carefully with crimson ribbon."You girls from the Ninth? From Japan? Come here to help out with Sab?" The girl says in English enthusiastically, a wide, open grin on her face that reminded you immediately of Kyoko. You understand her well enough, but her accent is almost impenetrable, making her very nearly unintelligible. She must have noticed your expression, as she tries to repeat the same in halting Japanese.Kirika giggles at this, making the girl's cheeks crimson, but despite this she tries again. After a few moments, Malal finally nods, replying in perfect, unaccented English."From the Ninth, yes. Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake, I presume? And yes, we're here to help out with the situation regarding Sabrina Blackburn." She holds out a gloved hand, and the American is all too happy to take it, apparently eager to make a good first impression herself as well as dispel the awkwardness. "This is Kirika Kure, our Eversor Rank Leader, and her prodigy, Miki Sayaka.""Oh! Pleased to meet you, then, Curry, Mickey!" The girl named after what sounds like a super-deadly designer drug grins at the both of you, before turning back to the Culexus. "Miss Malal, I think? Did I say that right? Oh, and please call me Mary Sue, that's just my codename, hahaha!"Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake?...Curry? MICKEY?[3/4]
>>26289324. . .Wait, she's the Warmaster in training, and...she's sent to pick the guests up? Isn't that something someone else less important gets sent to do?"They do things differently here in America," Malal tells you this quietly, before handing it back. "Right, thank you. It checks out.""Yeah?" Mary nods as she takes back her ID. "O-oh, lemme take care of that for ya!" She reaches for the luggage, and you glance at Malal for help. She only nods here - and you take it as permission to indulge the American, passing the luggage to her....For a indicare, you were expecting her to almost drop the hardsuit. Even if this is America, Vindicares aren't usually trained for physical strength.She carried it with no trouble at all, stuffing it into the car's trunk as if the luggage was filled with air - and soon after that she ushers all three of you into the car. Malal, as always, takes shotgun, while you and Kirika slide into the back seat. In no time flat, you're now being driven into Santa Destroy proper, towards the Eighth Officio Headquarters."Ah, thank God you guys got here just in time!" The American Warmaster in training seems eager, as with all things, to fill the silence of the car. "Sab's gettin' to be too much for th' Silent Room t'handle! She's puttin' holes in the walls already! The sooner we get her into that hardsuit, the sooner can relax!""That's what we're here for," Malal says smoothly. "How is Miss Marigold, by the way?""Tendin' to her garden, that's all she does now." Mary replies quickly enough, although with a note of clear disappointment. "Rest of the Officio's takin' her voluntary retirement hard, but she says it's time for her to settle down, or somethin'." Voluntary retirement, huh...?[4/5]
>>26289252Murderface / Chiaki / whatever is AmnesiacOriginally a schoolgirlMore a thug than anything professionalTechnically undeadAnd sloppy as fuck in almost every aspect of her lifeWhat of anything of that makes you think she would give two shits about The 4 fundamentals
>>26289354"Yeah. Fell in love with someone. Can ya believe it?" Mary looks at you from the rear view mirror, her bright amber eyes wide and mischievous. "Got into it with some Chinese chick from the Seventh. 'Course, they couldn't stop tryin' to kill each other at first.""That sounds awfully familiar." Malal turns to look at you pointedly, and you look away after a moment."It does? Huh. Well, I dunno." The American's considerate enough to sense the lull in the conversation. "Oh, hey, Mickey! Miss Malal here told us it's your first time here in America! Anything ya wanna ask about or see while you're here? We can probably arrange it if ya want!""How gracious of our hosts." Kirika drawls, before grinning at you and gesturing towards Mary. "Mickey, prease."...For fuck's sake, Kirika."It. Is. An. Order~"How do you respond?
>>26289392[x] Cowboy hats.
>>26289392[X] Cowboy hats
>>26289392[x] seconding cowboy hat for Kyoko.
>>26289392[x]Can I have your hat.
>>26289392Well my friend did want a souvenir from the trip so maybe a hat like yours?
I wonder if Kyoko has a hat collection?
>>26289392[x] Ask Mary if she has an idea for a good souvenir, gotta secure that Kyouko swag.
>>26289429>>26289437The only correct answer.
>>26289392[x] Cowboy hats
Hey, wait a second. TASALS' panties were found along with her sister's at the same time and place.And Kharn was sulking earlier.Does that mean our crazy Betrayer's going to sneak out on a private flight to Santa Destroy and have her way with them?
>>26289392[x] American weapons
>>26289463Oh, can't forget that Donald is Kyouko's favorite. Does Sayaka know about that at this point? Not sure.
>>26289392[x] Is it true that everything's bigger in America? You've not been very impressed so far, to tell the truth.
>>26289392Five bucks says the Chinese girl is Meiling.[X] "We," glare at Curry, "could really use something to eat. Something nice and sobering"
>>26289444More like a hat fetish since she always asks for themPlus they look good on her
>>26289484Going by the Wendy writeups that happened on another visit some time after this one.
>>26289501A collection can be related to a fetish. Just ask Kharn.
>>26289484No, the Warmasters met later. The initial meeting was this group. Then Kharn fucked TASALS, got in a fight with the Equerry, then fucked the Equerry and Wendy, then they met again, this time dragging Murderface along which is when she first met Wendy.
>>26289484Nope, she meets them when she drags Murderface around like a cute new puppy that just learned to do it's first trick of brutally murdering dozens of peopleThat was also when she collected Wendy's...
Spin off eroge staring Kharn collecting panties from around the world when?
>>26289531>>26289560And then Wendy came to visit us around Christmas, and that's when she fucked Murderface. Did TASALS tag along that time?
>>26289594There were two meetings there. One when we dragged her to Charle's Bar and that ended up with them together in the same bed, but clothed. There was another meeting but I can't remember the exact timing on that one. That one ended a bit more ambiguously. Around Christmas sounds right to me, which is when everything related to WPN starts to reach a boiling point.
>>26289594I think if the All-American Witch visited Mitikihara we'd have more craters.
Alright! Pausing for now, continuing tomorrow night, extra early.And thank you for everyone's participation! Sorry about the long waiting times, but introducing new characters and scenes are always my weak point :'DI don't think there are any writeups for this thread, so questions answered before I sleep!
>>26289671sayaka chikuwas so adorable. i love u Decu
>>26289671Are we likely to go to America in the present of the quest?
>>26289671Thanks for running Decu.
>>26289630I thought they did end up naked after their drunken ramble.
>>26289671Do QB and 8ball try to get along because, franky, they're both considered weird by the other incubators so they only have each other to rely on?
>>26289671Can we leave Kirika here and take Mary Sue home? >Fuck the timeline, AMERICA
>>26289687Hahaha, Nicehatguy drew this one!>>26289702Oh, very likely! I did say Chiaki will interact with all the other Warmasters one way or another.>>26289706Thank you for playing!
>>26289671thanks for the ride and see you tomorrow.
>>26289720Yes, they do have quite the rapport with each other!>>26289721Hahaha! Mary probably wouldn't mind, but she's the Warmaster, and she loves her twin sister too much!
>>26289727>>Hahaha, Nicehatguy drew this one!I... I drew all of them :<Thank for the thread, Deculture!How many threads do you figure this flashback will take?
>>26289752I know there's at least one you didn't draw, but I don't remember which one it was.
>>26289710>meWoke up a lot more naked than I was accustomed to. Underwear was still all in the right place, but...figured I’d be lucky if my cheongsam wasn’t wrecked, wherever the hell it was. ...Even more disturbing was the company. Seemed like we’d made it back to Kong’s apartment in one piece – probably thanks to Miss Tomoe somehow – and we’d...made it back into her bed, too. Both of us. ...Still there. ...Silky black hair was just a few inches from my nose. Kong’s head was buried in my neck.Half naked.
>>26289740This will probably be a "ha ha" answer, but any hints on how Kyoko and Midori are progressing with their job?
>>26289767In the present, they literally just came to visit us the night before. I can't imagine their mission went all pear-shaped just yet.
>>26289740We can bring two blondes back easily enoughKharn would be doubly happy at our souvenir selection then
>>26289766There was also the time where she woke up naked in our bed next to a blue rose.At least, I REMEMBER it being naked. I could be wrong.
>>26289787We didn't talk for long though. They may have done/found something that they didn't have time to tell us.
>>26289752Oh, of course! All of them! Sorry if I misrepresented it as something else!>>26289767Where we left off in the current timeline, they're doing fine. Pursuing leads and interviewing those who were with the missing girl before she went missing.
>>26289808They seemed cheery in the car ride back and talking about just girltalk, so I doubt it was anything too bad or important though.
>>26289671Are we going to a burger shop?
>>26289816Since it happens around the same time and place that her look alike coprse turned up, will anything to do with Ruri happen in this flashback?
>>26289804It never mentioned the state of her dress. Just that there was a blue rose next to her that Lily found. I suspect that was just murderface fucking with her.
>>26289671In the present, could we recruit Sabrina away like we did Midori? Because having the power to erode everything around her is pretty metal.
>>26289846Ahh, that's possible! Burger Suplex, Freckle Bitch and Pizza Butt are the most popular fast food chains in Santa Destroy! But the Cowboy Hat consensus will have to come first!
>>26289863I don't think it's a good idea to poach talent from the only incubator that's friendly to our own.
>>26289874>Freckle BitchThat's it's real name? I thought that was just Wendy being Wendy.
>>26289888Speaking of Wendy, how did she die again?
>>26289671Is it possible for Coobs or one of the other Incubators to make an empty soulgem outside of making a contract? Or would sacrificing a potential Meguca be the only way to create a blank Soulgem?I get the feeling that, if it is possible, it won't happen without using another potential meguca's soul to form the gem, and doing so would go against an incubator's rules and/or best interests when making a contract.
>>26289863Oh, quite possible! If the cards are right!>>26289853Hahaha! That's a possibility!
>>26289925She didn't. She just meets us in the dream world somehow.
>>26289925I don't remember her dieing. Hell, Murderface spoke to her in a conjoined dream a few days ago.
>>26289941She did, but Pinky stitched her back together and gave her a new Soul Gem for some odd reason.
>>26289874>Pizza ButtSo Travis hasn't murdered the entire company yet.Where are the other coobies stationed, Decu?
>>26289946Seeing as she's based on the player character from Yume Nikki, I'm going to say spooky dream magic.
>>26289959Is she some kind of dream emissary?
>>26289671Just how AMERICAN is this flashback going to get..?
>>26289959I need to re read the writeups. So much stuff to keep track of in this quest.
>>26289968I suspect her magic has something to do with the items you get in game, the knife for example. Her lesser known powers include becoming a frog, manifesting a bycicle, and becoming a will-o-the-wisp.
>>26290019If it helps, so far the Wendy/Eighth writeups are the only ones that tie into the plot right now.
>>26290019That's actually in the main quest, not the writeups. Thread...90 I think? >"...Anyway, that's how we know each other. But I guess we would've known each other anyway, what with being chosen and all.">Chosen?>"Of the Blessed Lady." Wendy takes another sip from her glass. "...Like you, Kong, I died once before. Shattered soul gem and all that. Dead as a doornail." A sad, wry smile. "And then she brought me back. Sparkled me up a new soul gem. Didn't even feel dead afterwards. Just...hollow, I guess. Cold." The smile disappears. "Tried to hide it, but...yeah. Never worked out.">You take a sip from your own glass, the soul gem swimming in the alcohol, the bauble gently tinkling against the glass as you drink.>So she's met you before. Kharn must know who she is, then. And Sayaka. You make a note to ask either of the two about any Wendy that they know of. Kyuubey must know something too, at that.
So does anyone keep a little list of noteworthy things? Because it seems like the way forward.
>>26290053It's gonna be a bitch to go through all of Prose once it ties in, if you're just reading them based on whether they're relevant or not. Deculture DID say that all the warmasters will show up one way or another...
>>26289937After this Flashback do we switch to MidoKyouko and have a 80s buddycop movie or do we go straight back to Muderfaec?
>>26290120Even minor things turn out to be of major importance. It's hard to keep track of shit. The only thing I think I should try to keep track of is the words we used for the diary app.
>>26290090DID we ever ask anyone about Wendy?
>>26289761>>I know there's at least one you didn't draw, but I don't remember which one it was.Well, maybe? I used to collect every piece of fanart that was made for MGNQ, but I lost track around thread 90. Maybe there's been one Chikuwa I missed? These are all the ones I've done anyway
>>26290176I don't think we did.
>>26290177i think there is one of Chiaki with a ponytail, not really sure though.
>>26290215Nope, there isn't.I know because people keep asking for that one, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
>>26290176Not yet. We can ask after we get back to the main quest at some point.Sayaka's going to be stuck with us for at least two more days on this mission anyway.>>26289927>No answerWell, looks like Malal will have to live with being our diary/In our Soulgem/In Kharn's Soulgem.
>>26289927>>26290252I don't really think a soul gem can BE "empty." My understanding is that it doesn't HOUSE the soul, it IS the soul, removed from the body and crystallized.
>>26290308In that case shouldn't QB be able to separate the two? I doubt it would be easy. But I suspect he would put forth the resources to extract Malal.
>>26290435But Malal already confirmed that she's well and truly dead. She left with Madokami at the end of Midori's arc. Don't think there's any coming back from that.
>>26290308Except Decu already explained in thread that sufficiently skilled culexuses can empty their soul gems and move their soulsThe gems aren't really the souls. They are more a phylactery or soul jar. They hold the soul after it has been removed from the person and normally you can't move it again but certain people could
>>26290472We never actually saw what happened and whether she stayed with Madokami or if she slipped back into Chiaki / Kharn / Midori's soul gems while no one was looking
We can but try gentlemen. Malal will live again!
>>26290472Yet we still get manifestations of her assaulting us and fucking with our shield all the time.Normal death doesn't seem to apply to the Madokas.I don't doubt that it is within Malals coding skills to have our phones content transfer wirelessly to a new phone from a backup server should it break. Or that she is using her god powers for the purpose. But I think it's also within the realm of possibility that she is still inside a soul gem.
