You tell Midori what you know about the Prophet. In low, hushed tones, you tell her everything you know about Mikuni Oriko and why you think she wants to kill you.She takes it well enough. She keeps her questions short and concise, asking about details that you may have missed or glossed over instead of asking you to repeat things. For a moment, you don't see the awkward, blushing girl you just had a date with - you see the Magical Girl in her, the Callidus trained from day one to be able to operate behind enemy lines. It's easy to forget about that kind of thing, you suppose, when all you see is her being nervous and shy around you.Or you being rescued by her.The things you miss when you're too busy having your ass saved.You'll make it up to her. You're definitely going to.
>>28897088In any case, you also tell her about the Golden Weapon in Oriko's possession, about how you, Kharn and Malal had fought its original wielder once. And how it very nearly killed all three of you, had it not been for the Betrayer suddenly being bestowed a Golden Weapon of her own.As you finish giving her the summary of what happened in the idol mission - about what Lucius told you - Midori is silent for a while, looking down at the remains of her breakfast. To her credit, she doesn't look frightened, or cowed - simply alert and attentive, turning what she'd learned over and over her head."I...should we tell Kyoko-san about this, sempai?" She says here, finally. "She talked to me about Oriko during our mission, and from what I remember she...well, she really likes her. As a friend, I think..."How do you respond?
>>28897095[x] Yes, probably. But you didn't want to shorten the date for it.
>>28897095>"It might be best if I talk to Sayaka first. Ask her how to break it to Kyoko."
>>28897095[X] Yes, the sooner the better. But she's already angry at herself over NECO. I thought it could at least wait until the drive back home. What do you think?
>>28897095[x] "Yes, but I want to talk with Sayaka first on how I should break it to Kyouko."
>>28897095[X] Telling her is for the best.
>>28897095[X] we pretty much have to, but I want to wait until I can talk to Sayaka first.
>>28897095alright, gotta make sure we don't forget anything:1) Get Kyoko's help with talking Oriko down2) Get Kirika's help with talking Oriko down. Maybe get Sayaka's advice for dealing with Kirika.3) Try to find out who the other person with Oriko is. Could be another golden wielder or worse.4) Ask Mami why everyone is freakin targeting her. can we steer this into finding out about her golden weapon?5) Talk to Pinky, maybe bring Kyoko or Sayaka. I'm worried about not time-stopping for so long.
>>28897095>[X] I'm going to consult with my Equerry as soon as I get in. After that, we'll brief everyone important, Kyouko included.
>>28897114>>28897119Both of these would be best.
>>28897136Changing vote to talking to Sayaka first.
>>28897124>she's already angry at herself over NECOWe should probably remind her that it's not just Midori's safety we're concerned about.What was it Kharn said about being Warmaster? The entire Officio are our girlss. Gotta take care of all of them. And you can't do that without Kyoko and Sayaka.
>>28897124>>28897095hat has it
>>28897173>1) Get Kyoko's help with talking Oriko down>2) Get Kirika's help with talking Oriko down.We could seriously use Sayaka's help with both of these.
>>28897095[x]"I probably should do that but I am nit sure how to do that without messing it up or making Kyoko run to Oriko to confront her about it. That already didnt work with the whole Kirika-Business."
I kinda wanna strongarm NECO into contracting. She'd probably make one hell of a callidus.
>>28897088>You'll make it up to her.[X] "On another note. Siberia.It might not be the best, but if you want to talk, now or later, I'll make time."
>>28897265I have my paranoid suspicions that NECO is already a Callidus for the First, and that's why Kyubey told us to just ignore her the first time around.

>>28897277I know voting's over, but I hope we do this.
>>28897265My current idea for that is to terrify her to the point where she thinks we're going to kill her and then give her the choice of working for us. Something along the lines of "You have thirty seconds to convince me not to kill you. Make use of them."
>>28897265The fact that she's such a fan and hasn't contracted yet indicates that there's a story there.It might be fun to try and deliberately mess up Malal's plans, but we should consider the implications before we rock the boat too much.
>>28897265It's crossed my mind, but I don't think you can force a contract.Besides which, forcing anyone into the Meguca lifestyle... it's the kind of Chiaki has a deep aversion to, for some reason. God knows why. Some forgotten past trauma, maybe.>>28897288Neco strikes me as way too human to be one of the 1st, personally.
>>28897173>1) Get Kyoko's help with talking Oriko downNo. This is a stupid idea. Remember Kirika and how involving people didnt really work out.>2) Get Kirika's help with talking Oriko down. Maybe get Sayaka's advice for dealing with Kirika.I dont think that will work without handing the sword over to Oriko and then it will just add Kirika`s crazy to Oriko`s crazy so lets not do that.>3) Try to find out who the other person with Oriko is. Could be another golden wielder or worse.Let Midori handle that. Let her question the girls we captured, in the Barrier-Incident she prove more than once that she can be savvy about what people say and what to say to people. And she is our Aide, let her handle some stuff.>4) Ask Mami why everyone is freakin targeting her. can we steer this into finding out about her golden weapon?This is stupid. We already now that Oriko is targetting Mami because she knew that is the closest person to Murderface. That may change now since the kiss went viral.And we already know that Mami has some secrets of her own, the last Phone-Entry spelled that out even for the slow ones.>5) Talk to Pinky, maybe bring Kyoko or Sayaka. I'm worried about not time-stopping for so long.Yes about talking to her. No about dragging Kyoko or Sayaka into it. If anything, Midori, but that only after we ask Midori`s Opinion on this.
>>28897320>>28897288You've discovered my secret, Chiakinyan. Well, it's okay if it's nyou...this is a joke do not take it seriously
>>28897309I think that would piss Sayaka off. And maybe Mami. Since magical girling is usually just like a delayed death sentence.
>>28897322>No. This is a stupid idea. Remember Kirika and how involving people didnt really work out.The fuck are you talking about? Involving people during the Kirika thing is the only reason we're still ALIVE.
>>28897320>Neco strikes me as way too human to be one of the 1st, personally.See>CallidusBut like I said, this is just my rampant paranoia screaming at me. It'll probably turn out she's really just a kid with a hard-on for journyalism and an obsession with the fictions surrounding Magical Girls.We should offer her a private interview as part of the interrogation, if she promises to never bother us on a date again.
>>28897360And Mami got stabbed. And we nearly splattered Sayaka all over the city. And we nearly died ourselves.
>>28897365>>Neco strikes me as way too human to be one of the 1st, personally.>See>>CallidusI still can't see it. Not unless she's really deep cover and/or has gone rogue.>>28897380by Murderface standards, a good day's work.
>>28897380But we didn't. Because we had sniper overwatch and Sayaka guarding our sniper.Had we not involved Misaka and Sayaka, we would be DEAD.
>>28897322You can't just say "no" to everything asshole. You have basically just removed Murderface from the entire plot with your post. Are you saying we should just sit in our apartment talking to Pinky? Great plan.No, we will talk to our aids, and see if we can get help from Kirika. If Kirika wants none of it, she can sit in the locker for the rest of the quest for all I care.
>>28897383completely different person here but i thought magical girls had this almost radar-like thing going on where they can detect normies and sparkles alike, and only a callidus could trick it
>>28897393And if we involve Kyoko , Kyoko will die because she believes in her "friends". Remember the time where Kyoko sacrificed herself to stop Sayaka-Fish?I dont want her anywhere near Oriko.Kyoko is stupid like that.
>>288974121st are a serious exception to the normal rules, by all accounts.Like, their Eversors are world destroying juggernauts.Fuck alone only knows what their Callidus can pull off in relation to a normal MG.But it's not something we can really plan for. Only try and work around if it turns out to be the case.I'm inclined to take NECO at face value.
>>28897429That, I will agree with, with the caveat that if she ASKS we shouldn't try and deceive her about it. She isn't an idiot, and will work it out eventually. No reason to involve her at this point, though.Your example was still stupid though.
>>28897403How did I remove Chiaki from anything? Does it really need spelling out why taking Kyoko/Sayaka to the barrier is dumb? Does it really need spelling out that Chiaki will obviously be busy with another mission so we can delegate so stuff?Does it really need spelling out that Chiaki will engage Oriko and her band of merry misfits herself? So fuck you and fuck you passive-agressive shit.
>>28897322>I dont think that will work without handing the sword over to Oriko and then it will just add Kirika`s crazy to Oriko`s crazy so lets not do that.Really, the whole thing hinges on how Kirika will react to learning that Ahriman is using Oriko as a puppet. Remember, Kirika and Oriko were really close.If Kirika takes exception to this, then we'll probably have her help out with stopping the Prophet of her own free will.And if not? We'll just leave her where she is. No biggie.
>>28897445...Do we know how numerous the First is?
So, bets on who filthy assistant is?
>>28897496Deepthroat. She knows how Ruri smells.
>>28897496Fujimura Tiger.Because cat theme. And laziness. And lewdness.
>>28897504I'm not sure Deepthroat would be able to smell Ruri over the smell of Deepthroat.
>>28897496I'm putting my money on Noriko. It would explain how NECO's article hit on all of Enishi's most sensitive points, and why it came so coincidentally close to just after Enishi and Noriko ran into each other at the hotel.
>>28897429It's tricky because if we DON'T tell her she's going to take this shit pretty hard if she doesn't find out until after the fact.Which is why we want Sayaka's read on the situation. Because we're shit at this, and Sayaka knows her better than anyone else and more than anyone else she doesn't want to see her dead or witched.If Kyoko comes out of this hating us... well, that's a sacrifice we'd make to keep her alive, I think.>>28897494Not that I can recall. The average Officio has about 1000 mg's, but like I say, the 1st is exceptional.(I'd bet probably single figures, but that's a hunch. Frankly they probably don't need any more than that)
>>28897486Kirika could just lie, tell us that she'll help calm Oriko down, and then help her and Ahriman against us. Kirika still hates us, and we don't know if love will outweigh hate with her.
>>28897486Can we really trust Kirika-Swords word on that? Of course she will say that we totally should hand her over Oriko so she "talk" to her or something.There is only a miniscule chance that she will help us and she ends up with both weapons either way. Is it really worth the risk?I would also like to point out our adventures with golden weapons so far: - Ahriman mopped up the floor with Us, Kharn and Malal and she JUST had the staff at that time.- Kirika mopped up the floor with us. We were extremly lucky and Misaka.- Whatshisname wasnt even a meguca and went full Demonhost due to bangles. Again we had Kyoko and Tiny Pete.- Kharn also mopped up the floor with us even though we had a golden weapon and Kharn wasnt even serious.I dont you should take the prospect of battling Oriko using staff and sword, lightly.
>>28897557I'm gonna say 9 people.'Rank Leaders', their direct subordinates, and a Warmaster to direct things.
>>28897557>The average Officio has about 1000 mg'sNo, I think the average is smaller than that. The Ninth has a thousand, and that's after absorbing the Third and it's considered to be bloated by others.
>>28897564Nah, we offer to trade Kirika's katana for Ahriman's staff.Basically we give Kirika one last chance to kill us, double or nothing.If we live, she plays nice from now on.
>>28897496You are. You just havent noticed.
>>28897534Where is this from? Is there more carnival phantasm I'm not aware of??
>>28897581Kilgore was his name. And you bring up a good point; yes, Oriko is unContracted, but she has a Golden Weapon. We've seen firsthand that just because the wielded is mundane, that they're going to be anything that can be handled by regular MG means. And unlike with Kilgore and Yuu, where the soul of the Golden Weapon didn't like the wielder, both Ahriman and Oriko are working together towards a common goal. So they may be more than we initially think.
>>28897626Fate/Zero Einzbern consultation room specials.
>>28897596of course, I have no idea whether we can hope to actually WIN that fight.
>>28897581>Ahriman mopped up the floor with Us, Kharn and Malal and she JUST had the staff at that time.Worth noting: She was Golden and none of us was at the time.
Hrm...correct me if I'm wrong but, didn't we see Oriko crying when we looked at her through the mirror?I'm not too sure she's doing this willingly anymore...
>>28897627>>Ahriman and Oriko are working together towards a common goal.Oriko started wearing kimonos and styling her hair like Ahriman. It's more like she's possessed.
>>28897635We still havent unlocked the full potential of the Shield and we still have 5 fully equipped-MIGs stored inside.
>>28897657Just because someone's crying doesn't mean they're doing something unwillingly.
>>28897680Maybe we could get the same group that cleansed our office of Kharn to exorcise her as well?
>>28897657No, she wasn't crying. She was enjoying being pampered by her followers while the Staff was in the corner.
>>28897699Man, those are practically Chekov's MIGs by now
>>28897680>>28897712Wasn't the renegades of the 3rd also pretty angry with Ahriman?Why are they even following an ahriman knockoff?
>>28897729>Wasn't the renegades of the 3rd also pretty angry with Ahriman?There's been nothing to indicate that.
>>28897699>>28897721We'll use them to either destroy the first in a hilariously ineffective attack, or on Pinky's grief seed on an equally effective attack.
>>28897729Some joined the Ninth. Others broke off saying they were loyal only to Ahriman.
We should offer to trade the Sword for the Staff.Also, if we wield the Sword, we should be wearing the Bangles at the same time, for Adorable Little SIster Yuu backup inside Kirika's soulscape.
>>28897771We're taking Gorefather, surely? They've already proven their value against the staff, and if it comes to us vs Kirika, they seem appropriate.
>>28897119 >>28897134 >>28897170 >>28897177You nod, here. Yes, you definitely have to tell Kyoko about Oriko being the Prophet. Even you know that Kyoko was rather enamored with the soft-spoken girl. You're just...well, you're not sure how to broach the subject with the Eversor without screwing it up somehow, without Kyoko going off to confront Oriko by herself. You could see that happening all too easily.One thing's for sure, though - you're planning on asking Sayaka for help there. If there's anyone who could stop Kyoko from acting too rashly, it'd be your Equerry. She knows what makes Kyoko tick, after all, and would get her to see sense much more easily than you could.Midori nods here, as well. "That sounds like it'd be for the best, sempai. Miss Sayaka telling her would blunt the shock some."That's the idea. So, if she could make sure Kyoko doesn't hear about it until then--"My lips are sealed, Sempai." She gives you a smile. "Thank you for telling me. About...about everything."You shake your head. It's...well. You're surprised that she isn't freaking out about this. You did just confirm that she'll be in danger because of her association with you.The green-haired Callidus smiles a bit wider, here, before carefully reaching forward and placing her hand over yours. Giving your fingers a squeeze."I'm not worried, Sempai. Well, maybe a bit." Midori nods here. "But I know Sempai, along with everyone else, will do their best. And, well, I don't mean to play down how dangerous the Prophet is, but after Siberia...I think I can manage." She smiles at you again, a shy but confident smile.Ah. Siberia....About that. She never really told you about everything that happened there. Just...bits and pieces. You don't remember most of it yourself.[1/2]
>>28897729I assume, like with any large group of people, it wasn't black and white. Girls probably had all kinds of reasons to join the 9th or stand their ground and fight.
>>28897802"I...I was told by Souji that I should be careful telling you about Siberia, Sempai. He says I should take it slow, to...not overwhelm you with it. And myself, too." It's here that she lets out a sigh. "I'm...I'm not sure of what happened myself, but I'll tell you what I know soon enough. Is that alright?"You nod. Whenever she wants to, and whenever she's ready. You'll make time for it."Miss Midori!" It's here that Kumatora calls from outside. "Everything's set up! We're ready whenever you are!""We'll be right out!" Midori calls back, and she squeezes your hand again as she stands up. You blink here, and do the same. What's going on?"W-well, just a little something, about...well, Sempai, about what happened in Siberia." The green-haired girl giggles softly. "Just a way to remember a friend."You had more questions then, but you stay quiet instead as you let her lead you outside. To the cottage's backyard, facing the lake.It's a bonfire. A small one, already lit and burning quite readily, the faint smell of lighter fluid evident from the smoke, along with the acrid stink of burning paper. A few ways from it, you see Kumatora cutting open boxes and throwing their contents into the bonfire - sheafs of white paper, some of them bound together, and all of them sporting writing and drawings on them."We were supposed to do this last night. Bonfire an' everything." Kyoko says from behind you as she carries what looks to be a huge bouquet of flowers, with a teddy bear nestled among the roses. "But, uh, well, that happened. So we're doing it this morning." She offers you an apologetic grin. "Sorry."But a bonfire? What for? And what's the bouquet for?"It's...well, it's for Wakaba Mirai, Sempai." Midori smiles. "Do you remember her?"How do you react?
>>28897847uhhhh, bears, dickbutt, and an urge to strangle a funny coloured mutant cat?
>>28897847[x]"Not very well; must be another side effect of the procedure. I remember she was a Pleiades Saint, your friend, sent to take you back by force, and that Jyuubei forced her Soul Gem to Witch out. But that's it."
>>28897847[X] I remember you said she was your friend...
>>28897847[X]vaguelySomething about bears
>>28897847[x]"I..I killed her didnt I? When I enraged your former Dickbutt when he wanted you back. I am sorry about Mirai, but he cant have you back."
>>28897847>>28897802>You nod here>Midori nods here>smiles a bit wilder, here, [...]>Midori nods here>It's here that[...]STOP! Enough of this.I can't take this anymore, Deculture. You abuse the word "here" too much. It's not even needed! The sentences would be just fine (if not better) without it.Stop abusing the poor word without reason. Please.
>>28897847[x] Something about.. giant angry bears?
>>28897847[X] "Poor kid.You knew her, right?"
>>28897847>>28897878>>28897894[x]Those combined. [x]Quietly hold her hand during the Bonfire.
>>28897847[X]>>28897878>>28897894>>28897929Going with these
>>28897847[x] "Your friend from the Tenth was it? The one with the bears?"
>>28897847You know why there's not a banner for Mirai?We killed her.
>>28897997Someone should make banners for all the golden weapons to go with that deagle one.
>>28897894>he cant have you back.Frankly, we wouldn't piss on Jyubey to put him out if he was on fire.
>>28897997Oh please, like getting killed stopped hat-chan from making banners of them.We've already got Malal, Wendy, and Pinky, who we did actually kill.
>>28898043no, you misunderstand.He doesn't mean Chiaki killed them.He means we, the players, did.
>>28898043I'm not sure being killed stopped any of them from anything.
>>28898025We would if we had drunk enough spirits for our liver to rupture and for us to be pissing concentrated alcohol
>>28897997You`ve gone too far this time, cat. I dont like you anymore.
>>28898073>if we had drunk enough spirits for our liver to rupture and for us to be pissing concentrated alcoholif we haven't managed that by now, it's never going to happen.
>>28898085It's okay, anon. It'll all be okay.In the Golden Land.>the kgalandClose, captcha. Close.
>>28897997There should be a mirai banner. Except Mirai isn't there and it's just the sign saying "you done fucked up."
>>28898153For impending disaster?
>>28898153>Mirai isn't there>not the rotting, crying corpse of Mirai that Midori sees in her dreams each night, reaching out for something, anything, to save her the way Midori couldn't
>>28898092Who says it hasn't before?
>>28898182Isn't Incubator healthcare great?
>>28898173that's not noir, dude. That's verging into gothic>>28898182You really think Murderface isn't going to manage it once and then shoot to be -at least- that drunk every night afterwards?
>>28898199>that's verging into gothic
oh boy oh boy
>>28898199I just like seeing the characters suffer horribly.Which is why Midori is going to inevitably betray us after Chiaki confirms that there's nobody else she wants to date. Mami was in on it the whole time. That's why she encouraged our relationship in the first place.And as we bleed out, Midori will smile down to us and admit that she really did love us in the end.
>>28898207rotting crying corpse? That's gothic.Seeing the person you failed just as you remember them, and then waking up and realising just how badly you fucked up and how everything can never be all right again? That's noir.
so, i just finished watching the last episode, and before i go find a (hopefully) decent camrip of rebellion, i have three questions. when madoka rewrote the universe, did she change the incubators somehow? because kyuubey seemed less of an arse at the end. or was that just that he had less incentive to be a bastard?secondly, just what the fuck was walpurgis? Thirdly, what were the reality-breaks around homura's back in that last scene post-credits? was that madoka fluffing around, or just general magic?if theyre explained in rebellion, no spoilers pls
>>28898248>he had less incentive to be a bastard>>28898248>what were the reality-breaks around homura's back in that last scene post-creditsIn my head canon, the wraiths are from the various timelines where Madoka did not ascend and rewrite the rulebook.
>>28898233It's not like we've been in that situation before, being held in a loved one's arms after she's just fatally wounded us.>>28898248They're spoiler, walpurgis is just a bigass witch, and they're not explained at all.
>>28898248Haven't seen Rebellion yet, but from the series itself and interview/extras stuff I've read:>he had less incentive to be a bastardPretty much. The new system gave the Incubators zero reason to be manipulative and deceitful; the enemies that Magical Girls fought were created by normal people's emotional entropy, and there was no Witching.>just what the fuck was walpurgis? Implied to be an amalgamation event of the accumulated despair of Magical Girls throughout time; past, present, and future.
>>28898277The way it was explained at the end of the series made it seem like the wraiths are the manifestation of negative emotional energy that was denied the outlet of witches. It all needed to go somewhere, so it manifested as wraiths.
>>28898300See I'd always thought Walpurgis was a multi-MG witch.
>>28898277in short, explain it however you like :)
>>28898248Question 1 & 3 are explained in Rebellion.And Walpurgisnacht seems to either be a HUGE ASS witch or an amalgam of magical girls, dont know if you noticed by her familiars happen to look like Shadows of Magical Girls.
>>28898317>tfw I read that as multi-MiG witch
>>28898334>>28898300>>28898295>>28898277ok, thanks, is there any camrip that is best, or just go with whatever?
>>28898347That would explain the anti-aircraft missile launchers.
>>28898248I'd say Kyuubey seems less of a bastard just because he has less incentive to, yeah. That and it just seems that way because he just gets that one scene post-reset.Walpurgis night is simply an amalgamation of witches. I think they explained it as originally a single witch that combined and assimilated other witches through the ages. Might be due to a trait it originally had. If you mean those wings, they're just some special magic she gains apparently, if going by the PSP game as it's her final skill there. I'd like to think that as being result of her memory of the previous timeline. When she uses it in the game Homura's lines are always about how she remembers (despite the entire game being pre-reset).
>>28898317That's pretty much how I took it, only that it doesn't seem to be limited by current-time MGs - which is why it's always too damn powerful for anyone short of Madokami cheating the system; if Homura and co. become more powerful to defeat it, it retroactively gains the power of their witch potential. And the more Homura tries, the more she despairs about it, compounding the problem.
>>28898248Well, coobs wasn't changed at all. He was just being subtle this time. You learn why in Rebellion.Walpurgis is conglomeration of multiple witches. The wiki goes into more details and speculation based off of Faust. http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Walpurgis_NightI'm still not sure about your last question. Possibly the straw that broke the camel's back that kicks off Rebellion?>>28898352If you want a decent camrip, just search for "[Suffering Subs] Puella Magi Madoka Magica - The Rebellion Story"
>>28897878 >>28897894 >>28897929 You blink, here. Yeah, you...you remember her. Not all that well, though - probably a side effect of the procedure you had. Wakaba Mirai...the girl you encountered with her and Kharn, during a bear hunt in Siberia. She wanted to take Midori back. You and Kharn stopped her. And she witched out just as you were interrogating her..."She did, Sempai." Midori nods. And...she helped me, in the nightmare, while I was trying to rescue you. She helped me get you out of there, and..." It's here that her voice starts to falter. "She sacrificed herself to get me out of there, too.""I met her once, actually," Kyoko cuts in as she hands Midori the bouquet. "Before the shit with the Third started. Brutal with her sword, and you had to watch out in case she summons a bear on you. But really very nice, and she never really went for the kill. Just enough that you'd back off, and she'd salute like it was a kendo match or something."Midori smiles. "That's...that was Mirai-chan, all right. She wanted to be a Knight more than anything else. She wanted to...to join the Second Officio. But Jyuubey wouldn't let her transfer. She finally did manage to convince him once, though, and she left to take their trials." She shakes her head. "She didn't pass. We both cried about it for a week." Another giggle escapes her lips, one breathy and weak, bordering on a sob. "I...I was sad that she didn't get in, but I was also secretly happy that she didn't. B-because that would've meant my losing the one friend I had in the Tenth. I...I never got to tell her about that, though. I never got to tell her so many things."The green-haired Callidus exhales in a tremulous, shuddering sigh. "And I never...I never got to properly say goodbye to her like this. Everything happened so quickly, and...all I knew was that I was supposed to be the one saying goodbye to her. I was supposed to be the one who died. But she saved me, and...and.."[1/2]
>>28898373As Godoka's final link to the physical universe, I think those abilities are a "gift" from Madoka. Hence the bow.
>>28898403You watch as Midori reaches up to cover her mouth with a hand, her head bowed, and it's here that her shoulders start to shake. The plastic wrapping of the bouquet crinkling as she holds it together against her. Kyoko nudges you gently to go to her, cocking her head towards the Callidus in a pointed gesture - but before you could, Midori seems to compose herself, despite her now reddened, glistening eyes and flushed cheeks."I'm...I'm okay, sempai. I'm fine." She smiles at you again. "I promised her - and Miss Malal - that I wouldn't bother with the waterworks too much." She turns to Kyoko and nods. "Um, Miss Kyoko, if you please...?"Kyoko nods in return, pulling out what looks like a worn prayer book from behind her. "Er, well, my dad was a practicing priest, so...I know how this goes. Sorta." She gives you a small smile, here, before flipping open to a bookmarked page. "Sorry if I get some parts wrong. I...I'm not really asked to do this kind of thing much, but I'll try my best.""It's fine, Miss Kyoko." Midori shakes her head, working up a smile even you could tell she didn't really feel. "That much is enough."And so it began. A short ceremony to pray for Wakaba Mirai's soul.You've never been for things like these, but you get how important they are. How they not only gave respect to the departed, but also offered a note of finality, of closure, for those still mourning. For those still grieving.You wonder idly, as you listen to Kyoko fervently lead all four of you in prayer - your hand firmly holding Midori's own - what yours will be like.Who would stand here to pray for you? Who would mourn? Who would even bother turning up?Probably no one, but...you hope at least even one would. So it wouldn't be the world's most pathetic posthumous ceremony.But hoping for one to turn up is probably one too many, though. More than you would ever deserve.[2/3]
Speaking of MiGs, should we really just leave them in our shield and not give them to Misaka so she can turn them into the combining super robot Migatron
>>28898373>>28898387Personally I always thought that those Wings are Foreshadowing or accumulated Karma. Remember how Coobie explains that Meduca is such a powerful Meguca because with every effort of Homura to save her Meducas negative Karma grew and grew? I wondered why this isnt the same for Homura.
>>28898430The ceremony ends with Midori throwing the bouquet onto the bonfire. All four of you watch in silence as the flowers start to immediately wilt at the searing heat before finally catching flame. The teddy bear is the last to actually go up, its stubby little arms remaining open the entire time, for the hug that will never come."Hey, Murderface." Kyoko whispers as she steps up beside you, her gaze still on the bonfire. "I know what you're thinking, you know."...Really? Does she read minds now, or something? "Nah. But, you know. The occasion and everything." She nods towards the bonfire. "Um. Are...are you still angry with me over thing with NECO? I...I just really want you to know how bad I feel about that. The last thing I wanted was to ruin your date, and...I guess I got carried away, there." She manages a sheepish smile here. "It won't happen again, I promise. I just...I just want us to be cool again, that's all."How do you react?
>>28898467[x] "Again? I don't remember stopping the first time."
>>28898467"We're always been cool. Just no more setting of me on fire. It gets way too hot."
>>28898379That's not entirely correct, since there were timelines where Madoka and co actually did manage to defeat it, but at the cost of her life, so Homura reset the timeline anyway.
>>28898467[x] "...Wait, you think I'm angry at you because the cat turned out to be some kind of neko-ninja?"
>>28898467"She tricked Enishi and an entire squad of trained Callidus on high alert security detail. Why would I be mad at you for actually managing to catch her?"Then we punch her awkwardly, and probably too hard. That's how she expresses non-romantic affection, right?
>>28898467[X]deadpan battle cry[X]lightly punch her repeatedly in the arm[X]"You are already forgiven."Sweet but not sappy. Might not fit the atmosphere though.
>>28898467>[x] "...Wait, you think I'm angry at you because the cat turned out to be some kind of neko-ninja?"
>>28898467[X] No, we're not cool. Bring me her head on a silver platter. Don't look so horrified, I was just joking. We're cool.
>>28898467[x]"Its not your fault, Kyoko. If someone is to blame for this, its me or the damn cat. As your Warmaster I should have anticpiated the eventuality of Neco following me even here."
>>28898467>The teddy bear is the last to actually go up, its stubby little arms remaining open the entire time, for the hug that will never come.Fuck you for making me feel these feels.
>>28898467[X] "I'm angry about a lot of things, but I don't recall ever being mad at you about last night. Just be more careful next time."
>>28898467[x] "Kyoko, the only time we haven't been cool is that time you set me on fire.">lean in, stare at her with dead eyes
>>28898467"You've set me on fire before, remember? It's going to take more than a little oversight like that to rid you of me.""And besides, >>28898509 "
>>28898467>[X] "Anger never even crossed my mind."
>>28898467"I haven't got any problem with you, Kyoko. I know you were trying. Touched the bottom of what's left of my heart.But seriously: watch your ass out there. It's not just Midori's safety I'm worried about. I can't run this Officio, not without you or Sayaka to sort out up my fuckups,"
>>28898510As amusing as a HnK reference here would be, it's not really in character for Chiaki.
So... Why was she burning her manga? Did I miss something?
You know, I've been wondering something non-spoilerish about Rebellion. Is there any particular reason why the part of the OST gave off a French vibe? Especially "Your Silver Garden."It's not bad at all, I'm just curious.
>>28898658I would guess to send her entire work up to Mirai so she'll have something to read.heaven just got a bit lewder.
Can we start planning for the eventual fuckup that will happen when we meet Wendy? the wifu wars are about to start having in game casualties if we don't get our shit together. the way i see it we have a few options1. The wendy route: basically we tell her that midori was just a bed warmer till she showed up. while this would probably smooth things over with Wendy, im sure everyone else will hate us. Forever. Also this kills the Midori2. The midori route: tell wendy that it was a stupid promise to make. that part of you loved her once, and that is still does, but murderface or kong or whoever it was is gone. the lingering feeling we have made us say that but the way we are now it wont work. 3. we tell them both that we are a terrible person and try to drown ourselves in alcohol and self loathing while shunning all social contact. i think this option is the most in character and may be the only way to unlock the harem route. the way i see it Midori and Wendy may bond over trying to save the only thing they have in common, chiaki. tell me these suck or whatever but we need to get this conversation going
>>28898678Fourth route: we currently love Midori. We did love Wendy, and might still do so. We have absolutely no idea how to reconcile these two things, and want to ask for their forgiveness and patience while we try to figure out how not to fuck this up. Well, how not to fuck it up worse.It is possible to be in love with more than one person at once, you know.
>>28898678>we need to get this conversation goingWe really don't.This is what stank up the last thread.We do this the same way Murderface does everything.Seat of the pants.
>>28898707So... Butt stuff?
>>288986783 a best
>>28898707...we just, in-character, saw the end result of one of the two worst bits of seat-of-the-pants derpery in the entire quest.So no, I don't think playing this by ear and thus praying that those same chucklefucks who screwed us the first two times won't go for the trifecta is a good idea.
>>28898670Well first of all, where the hell did you even find the full soundtrack, cause I've been looking forever.
>>28898678while option 3 sounds like pandering to a harem route, it DOES sound like the most in-character thing to do...
>>28898716>Ass-off contest between Midori and WendyAs much as I would enjoy this, it seems like a terrible idea, and we're probably not quite that shitfaced anymore.
>>28898707Last thread was a lot more toxic shitflinging, this seems like a legitimately good thing to discuss (if it's done without more shitflinging).I don't seriously expect anon to come to a consensus, though, there are some wildly differing opinions about how much of a bad idea that scene was.
>>28898706how is Wendy gonna take this though?
>>28898724Ok, here's the plan. We go full Midori-route on Wendy.First comes kneecapping, then comes kong. Then comes drunk things that are oh-so-wrong.
>>28898740Is it /really/ a harem if half the members are ghosts or something?
>>28898678I think you're basically right. At this point I think we can only have one. Whichever we don't choose will turn suicidal and/or homicidal. If we chase after both, we end up with neither.
>>28898678Tell god all about your plans, he needs a good laugh.Hahaha!
>>28898678>we need to get this conversation goingNo. We absolutely dont. Maybe things arent as bad as they seem. We will do like we always do and just decide what to do when it actually comes to meeting Wendy. And by that I mean we fuck up things even harder.
>>28898706>>28898678Fifth route: We try to Witch out again so there's two of us, and each love interest gets a Murderface all to themselves.
>>28898741Not to mention everyone calls Midori fat, so we know she'd probably win.
>>28898739All I could find was Your Silver Garden and Colorful. The Frenchness of the OST was just something I noticed rewatching the camrip.If you want I could try to dig up where I downloaded Your Silver Garden and Colorful.
>>28898766yea i really hate scheming there the GM can see, but we dont really have another place to discuss this.someone should make a MGNQ chat room
>>28898753>we should planonly there are no good answers. No superior choices.Just choices, and consequences. As we have just seen.So, any discussion must largely be fruitless. Because it's not about avoiding a mistake. It's about which variety of mistake to make.
>>28898741We could get that shitfaced if we really wanted to.
>>28898786THAT'S NOT HOW WITCHING OUT WORKS
>>28898724>two timesI count four. The "lick the soulgem" part, not saving Mirai, and both Iori Wars.
>>28898790There used to be one but nobody used it.
>>28898745Hell if I know, but it'll definitely work better than either pretending there's no problem or openly backstabbing either of our love interests.
Still vote for mumi x windy
>>28898678Depends on how Murderface actually was with Wendy. Were they actually a couple, or were they just drinking/fuck buddies?
>>28898787We need to persuade Dan Kim to draw us some Midoributt. Lots and lots of Midoributt.
>>28898741>Wendy and Chiaki get piss-ass drunk while drowning sorrows>Midori joins in>three days later>All wake up naked at Mumi's fuck-cabin, bottles and poorly drawn sketches everywhere, "sexy results" scrawled all over them>Kharn is there too.
>>28898808>>28898724I count six. Kissing Wendy before, and taking the Ruri job in addition to those four.
>>28898781as much as i would like to not worry about it, i also dont want to get chiaki kinfe skull fucked by wendy, or lust driven witch eaten by midoriand with such a divide in the player base it will be hard to come up with a good decision
>>28898808"Get fucked" and "take Coobs to see Pinky" are, I think, the absolute worst decisions in the quest.
>>28898808Five.>Get Fucked.>ofpanti firstDon't aim for six Captcha.
>>28898826>Kharn is fully clothed, and is just staring at the three with a blank face>With a video camera
>>28898790We're not scheming to get one over on the QM. It not only doesn't matter whether Decu sees where we're going, it's actively helpful because he's got to write the damn thing.
>>28898833Thats not saving Mirai.
>>28898819I'll go ahead and WORD OF ASSISTANT GOD this since it isn't supposed to be some secret, they were dating as much as either of them's ever dated anyone.Going to movies together, going on missions together, snuggling in bed instead of getting up when they both had a day off dating.
>>28898851To be fair, in that case there was no way in which we knew we'd be losing Mirai by doing it. On the other hand, we should have known we'd be losing MIDORI by doing that.
>>28898827>>28898832>>28898833>Implying licking the Soulgem was a bad idea>Implying its not what made Miodri fall in love with usGET FUCK`D and BRING COOBIE INTO BARRIER were terrible choices though.
>>28898787Sorry, I'm actually a Chidori shipper.>>28898821Please. Midoributt would be glorious.
>>28898858>Going to movies together,I cannot picture this.Shacked up in a filthy hovel someplace watching DVD's, maybe. Possibly some kind of tortureporn.
>>28898841>Kharn didn't join in because she decided to spice things up a bit with a little variety.
Ever seen a manga or anime were the "couple" would kiss and the next day one of them would be like: "does that mean s/he likes me?". Read a few things here and there saying that a relationship isn't seen as formal and exclusive in Japanese culture until a confession has been given. As such, one could claim cultural differences for that particular scene in question. Personally, I think that's just crass and goes completely against Chiaki's character. Chiaki makes a lot of mistakes, yes, but she takes responsibility for her actions and doesn't try to brush them off in some of the appalling manners suggested in the previous thread. In reality, the intent behind her words doesn't matter (because anon will never agree), but rather how Wendy took them. A straightforward apology is, in my opinion, the only way to move forward here. And now, I go back to work.
>>28898870>>28898832Taking Coobs to Pinky never actually happened, though.
>>28898876...Alright, this is probably more accurate. But you get the idea!
>>28898884Hatguy swoops in with a voice of reason. It's a waste of time to argue and try to sperglawyer our out of taking responsibility. Point is, we hurt a girl's feelings, we should at least apologize for that.
>>28898832Yeah, that was a QM error because there wasn't a system set down yet.I mean, people still voted for it enough for Decu to miscount it as the winner, but.
>>28898876They probably went to a bunch of low budget Grindhouse stuff. Stuff you watch just so you can make fun of it.
>>28898907Also, Rocky Horror.
>>28898876>Murderface asking Wendy if she can hold the casing for the pipebomb she's making>Wendy trying not to fall asleep and then trying not to shake as Murderface absent-mindedly prods places with a knee>Murderface scowling with a knife in the arm saying if she didn't like it she could have just said
>>28898832>>28898833"Get fucked" is not saving Mirai and the "take Coobs to see Pinky" was safely retconned. But still counts as a fuckup.
so im hearing a lot of stick with Midori and try to let wendy down as gently as possible. do we have anyone from team wendy with a reasonable plan? or are we just going take the midori route?
>>28898621>texting from the migatron>IMmigration
>>28898884apologizing is a start.
>Obtain staff>Force vulture bitch into subservience>Nuke things with magicOr we can just throw the staff and the katana into a pit and watch them violently rattle against eachother as they impotently rage against one another.
>>28898884Problem is that we probably are still in love with Wendy in addition to being in love with Midori. Normally, you don't stop being in love with a partner who dies, you just eventually fall in love again with someone else. This isn't generally a problem, because dead partners don't usually come back.In other words, Wendy isn't really an "ex" in the usual sense of the term. This is what's causing a lot of the problems, I think.
>>28898929Prioritize getting her out of her fucking cult, see what pieces are left to pick up
>>28898942As much of an ex as is possible given he circumstances because there was no "relationship" anymore. Wendy died and Murderface forgot. Chiaki tried to patch things up, and made them worse instead. Now is the time to own up to that fact and apologize.
>>28898942Plus there is the Amnesia in play. Chiaki knows very few important details.
>>28898942How can you be in love with someone you dont even clearly remember?
>>28898971The heart can remember what the mind forgets. so can the body for that matter, after we instinctually groped her.
>>28898971Watch "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" some time.
>>28898942>>28898884The route is basically the same as we'd do for anyone. Try to talk her down while on the defense, if she's still aggressive, we shoot off non-fatal parts and try again; if she's still acting crazy (read: not in our interests) we put her down gently.The same as if anyone of our magical girls wanted to suddenly kill each other. We'd probably put down Midori if she went bugfuck insane, too. Tearfully, but we'd do it.
>>28899001Right, basing your understanding of how memory and emotions work on a Hollywood movie. That's a terrible idea.
On a note completely unrelated to the Waify Wars Redux, I love how Kyouko's gone from "that annoyingly cheerful one-eyed idiot pocky addict" to "Nah we cool, we were never not cool, chill".
>>28899025>We'd probably put down Midori if she went bugfuck insane, too.We outright promised her we'd do this, and she said she'd do the same for us. Though I expect this to be another promise people have already forgotten.
>>28899025>Try to talk her down while on the defenseExcept I don't think we can do that for Wendy, because if we bring anything less than our absolute A-game she will walk all over us and dance in our intestines.In my head, this is basically how they originally met.
>>28899038That was the Murderface version of "we cool".Anyone else would have been sans kneecaps before they sat down
>>28899032First, it's at least valid in the sense that a) memories you've otherwise forgotten can be tied to stuff you still remember and b) absent memories of a nasty breakup, the things that made you get together the first time are likely to make you do so again.Second, in a world where magic and miracles are real it's possible that some Hollywood logic applies. Like it does with explosions.
>>28899038She's been like that ever since the Kilgore mission. She started freaking out because she thought we didn't see her as a friend, and we reassured her that we did. >>28899059I remember it! And I'm actually really happy at how politely this discussion is going.
>>28899059You're right. Thank you for the reminder.
>>28897997Not fair, we pretty sure killed Pinky at some point and she gets one.
>>28899059See? We're learning! Even if we sometimes forget the actual promises, we remember what we're supposed to do.
>>28899059>>28899091>>28899086You know what we need to do?Make up a pastebin of all promises we've made and post it every thread.
>>28899100I mostly try to keep the banners centered around recurring characters or characters that are going to be making an appearance? Like, I made the Culexus banner when the Malal flashback was announced. Mirai banner if a Midori flashback is announced, I guess?
>>28899114And it needs to be updated with how badly we fuck up each one.
>>28899114second. while its only been two days since the Wendy thing its been, what? two months for us? we cant remember all this shit
>>28899114Following this, didn't we promise Kyouko that we would lie to Sayaka is we had to retire her as well?
>>28899114So basically a pastebin version of this?
>>28899122Just wait. How the Green Stole Christmas is coming...
>>28899086I just really like the dynamic between both pairings. Sure, I back Chidori mainly because their relationship as it stands makes the most sense for Chiaki right now (and I honestly interpreted that "Get things right" promise as "Don't fuck up with Midori like you did with me").But I love Wendy's characterisation, and how she and Chiaki interact with each other, just as much as I love Midori and her interactions with Chiaki.From an OOC standpoint, I also really like NECO, even if IC she's a shitty cat that needs to be taught a lesson.
>ask Wendy not to kill Midori, because it'd make you sad and hate her, and you don't want to do that>wendy tearfully agrees>Midori gets possessed remotely and is going to kill you>Wendy intervenes and kills Midori, and you find them together with her knife in Midori's body, dead>in a fit of rage, kill Wendy>she dies with a faint smile on her face and an apology on her lips>leaving you with two corpses>Hahaha-!
>>28899147This is why someone should work on a VN adaptation. I would love to have seen the potential Wendy route after going for The Danger on the first playthrough.
>>28899114Only the important one.
>>28899147Personally, I really like Wendy as a character, but I can't see a relationship working there. She and Chiaki are just too similar and she's still treating us like Kong, not as Chiaki. That aside, a relationship with her, as Mami implied, would be a step back in Chiaki's development. Basically, a relationship is give and take, but there isn't that here and their "chemistry" just doesn't click right for me. But, and this is something I have brought up with others before, Wendy does add something to the plot as a whole that I've considered missing from the start: a close relation that cannot be remembered due to amnesia.
>>28899174or maybe a what-if scenarioi also agree with >>28899147but we're probably at the point where we have to choose one or the other
Man this is WAY more civil than it was yesterday. I'm not complaining though
>>28898484 >>28898499 >>28898509 >>28898567You blink at Kyoko. Concern is written all over her face, and it looks like she's bracing herself for the worst-case scenario. ...It's almost a little cute, to see the usually-easygoing Eversor distressed like this. And it's definitely more than a little surprising that she's actually worried that you're pissed at her, instead of simply not giving a shit like she always does.But seriously, you? Angry at her? You've repeatedly said earlier during the breakfast that you weren't. NECO turned out to be a freaking ninja! She sneaked past an entire security detail, Squad Hiryu and even Enishi! There's also the fact that Kyoko actually managed to catch her - yes, she let NECO take the picture, but now where is the damn cat? And who put her there?"I...uh...is that a trick question, Murderface?" Her brow furrowing. "Because, uh, I'm not really good with them, and--No. No, it wasn't a trick question."Oh! Well, uh, then Kuma-chan and I did it, of course! And she's in Silent Room 3A, just like you said you wanted!"...Yes. So. You can't be angry at her, since she managed to catch NECO in the first place. "Ohh, I get it!" The red-haired Eversor nods, her one good eye wide. "Yeah, so, you weren't really mad at me after all? We're still cool?"Always have been, never stopped. It's here that you punch her in the arm, a mock punch, and immediately regret it. It's like punching fucking concrete. Freakin' Eversor musculature, how the fuck do they get into shape like that?You force yourself not to cry out or show pain, though. That's just not done, not right now.In any case, uh. You're angry about a lot of things, but not at her. As long as she's more careful next time, then things between you won't be changing for a very long time.[1/2]
>>28899168We should introduce NECO to Wendy.Yes I am joking.>>28899174>VN adaptationI would love this, but my God would it have to be trimmed down. Or possibly just set in part of the expanded universe or backstory.Actually, KharnQuest VN could be cool. Conquering blondes and trying to get your lesbian on around Malal's constant No Fun Allowed.>>28899191Yeah, that's pretty much how I see it. It's a matter of "I absolutely love how they were together, and the broken remnants of what they had, but trying to go BACK to that would be a terrible idea for everyone involved".
>>28899191Personally I'm in with the 'Midori and Chiaki don't have the basis for a lasting relationship crowd; they just have a sort of hero worship attraction and what amounts to a desperate hunger for positive, loving attention.So the clear answer is NECO route.
>>28899220"A-ah. Yeah." Kyoko finally grins at your reassurance, wide and beaming and genuine, with no trace of the reluctance or hesitation earlier. A sincere joy radiating from the Eversor, as if she was honestly relieved that things were back to the way they were between the both of you. "Thanks, Murderface. It's...yeah, I'm glad." She returns your mock punch - and you force yourself not to drop to your knees and cry at the stab of crushing pain. "And if you bite it, I'll stay until they're lowering you to the ground, or flinging your dusty ass from a cliff or something."Likewise, you manage to murmur in the most deadpan voice you could achieve under the circumstances. Finding yourself returning her grin.Kyoko. Also another puzzle, about how she came to be your friend.But you're not that much of a hurry to find out just how, or why.Whatever it was, you're glad it happened.With the ceremony over and done with, all four of you make ready to leave Mami's cottage. Kyoko and Kumatora will have to come back later for most of the stuff they used for the date, but for now, they'll be driving both you and Midori back to Headquarters.Overall it was...a success of a date, you feel. Sure, it kind of ended on a sour note, with NECO mucking up the proceedings, but you feel that you and Midori have definitely gotten closer because of it.There's just one thing you'd like to ask, though. About the bonfire.What was that Kumatora was throwing into the fire? They looked like manuscripts for something."Oh, those were my manuscripts for Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi, Sempai. Around thirty future volumes' worth." Midori replies beside you, as the both of you share the back seat of the company car Kyoko's driving you back into the city with. "I...I've decided to take the story in a different direction than I originally planned, Sempai, and what I had already drawn didn't really fit. So I had them burned to start over."[2/3]
>people calmly discussing wifus>looking for a tactful way to handle the situation >no shitstorming>general consensus what the fuck happened here?
>>28899191When a couple gets together because of things shared in common, and those people no longer do those things together, the relationship rarely lasts.Murdering people doesn't seem as fun to Chiaki as it did to Murderface.
>>28899236>burning MMxMMREWINDWE NEED TO REWIND NOW
>>28899221>Actually, KharnQuest VN could be cool.Sengoku Rance style?
>>28899236>I had them burned to start over.We should ask if there's any surviving copies to read. That seems like exactly the kind of tactless thing Chiaki would think of as showing interest in Midori's hobbies.
>>28899191I'm of the opposite mind, since I feel like Wendy and Chiaki's chemistry wouldn't actually be all that different even after the amnesia, and rather than her being a bad influence on us, we could be a good influence on her. And even after the amnesia we still have more in common with her than we do with Midori
>>28899236>"I...I've decided to take the story in a different direction than I originally planned, Sempai, and what I had already drawn didn't really fit. So I had them burned to start over."WaitSo she burned the manuscriptsInstead of SELLING THEM ONLINE?OH GOD THEY MUST HAVE BEEN WORTH A FORTUNEQUICK THEY MIGHT STILL BE SALVAGABLE
>>28899265Is there any other way?
>>28899236Thirty volumes? But isn't that a bit drastic? Couldn't she have kept some for filler, or something?Midori shakes her head. "No, sempai. It wouldn't really work. But I'll be fine - I can do it on my weekends, and I have an assistant to work with, now." It's here that Kumatora turns to wave at the both of you from the passenger seat.Huh. Well. Whatever works for her, then.The trip back to Headquarters is short and uneventful, and soon you're at the lobby, alone. Midori wanted to be by herself for a bit longer, and thus you had Kyoko and Kumatora take her to your shared apartment instead. The younger of the two Eversors had volunteered to keep Midori company until you returned, and you agreed - they'd be able to talk about the comic AND keep the Callidus safe....Anyway. Looking around, you notice that even without the Warmaster Cap on, people are already taking pause and saluting you as they pass, both Magical Girl and simple run-of-the-mill employee alike. You're not entirely sure how to return their greetings, so you make do with a cold stare and a nod, which seems to work.You make to put the hat on, anyways. Just to show you mean business.In any case, what do you do now? You have a few options.Report to Kyuubey.Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.
>>28899253Nah, it's cool.Midori's mental image of Murder Mayumi just changed a bit. That's... promising.It is kind of a shame she burned them though. Her publisher could have made a fortune off them after she croaked.>>28899268>rather than her being a bad influence on us, we could be a good influence on her.That's rarely how the real world works.
>>28899246If we stopped murdering people, then so can Wendy. After we get her out of that cult, anyway.
>>28899273>[x] Report to Kyuubey.

>>28899273[x]Report to Kyuubey.We're still sticking to the Professionalism thing.And if NECO really IS part of the First, then this is a chance for QB to stop us from making another mistake.
>>28899273>Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.Doing this now will probably prevent us from doing anything TOO drastic.
>>28899273[X]Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.we don't really have a reason to report to QB quite yet and we need to be in a good mood for this.
>>28899273Hat-chan's plan for NECO:1) Grab one of the Soul Gems that Mami already interrogated. 2) Calmly explain about the Prophet, the danger she presents and what NECO's recklessness has put in motion. 3) Shoot the Soul Gem. 4) Why shouldn't I kill you too?
>>28899273>Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.Kyuubey already said not to mess with NECO. if we go in there he is going to tell us the same or go over our head. fuck the cat, go talk to the cat

He'll be so impressed.And 30 volumes, jeez, that's a lot. But I guess it was symbolic, so it needed to be done.
>>28899334Or tie her to the chair and put the hat on her.
>>28899226I must agree with you about Midori, thou Midori has Improved I see their relationship being more like a bitter veteran training a idealistic recruit >>28899243Christmas miracle>>28899273[X]Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.also Chiaki thoughts on the funeral reminded me a little of Squall

>>28899334How about we tell her we're very disappointed in her, after all the trouble Sayaka went through.
>>28899373We havent decided on that yet. And even than its still a difference between letting someone die with some dignity or parading his corpse around.
>>28899334>>28899357Shouldn't an officio have gem replicas or "death row inmates" to use for this sorta thing?
>>28899273>[x]Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.Lets see if we can cut a deal with the damn cat
>>28899334Aside from the shooting the soul gem thing, I like this plan. Can we get a fake/dead one from somewhere?Really though, Hat-chan, part of the point of us taking the Soul Gems rather than destroying them on the spot is that we were proving ourselves above what the crazy bitch thought of us. Shooting them after the fact would kinda negate that, and we're trying to be better than that (even if we kinda suck at it a lot, we're trying, damn it!).
>>28899334But Soul Gems are people!
>>28899391Channel the mamidoooooo it
>I've decided to take the story in a different directionNothing good ever came out of this phrase. Ever.
>>28899273>[x]Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.captcha inferior nsratedIndeed captcha the cat is not s rated. In anything.
>>28899394As far as we know, the cat has nothing to bargain with.
>>28899398Magical girl suicide bombers are people we can safely kill without guilt.
>>28899405The cat has intelligence gathering skills to bargain with. Also she's disposable and deniable.That's pretty decent, if she cares to make use of it.
Look, quite franklyI reckon the best approach with NECO is to just>Walk in>Place The Golden Deagle on the desk, firmly, then start stroking it lovingly>Stare meaningfully at her kneecaps until she starts talkingAnd if we get nowhere>"I'm not going to hurt you, NECO. No, I've got a much worse punishment in store for you...">Hand her our phone with her chirpee page up, with Filthy Assistants promise to make Idol Porn is Real>"I'm going to keep you here for the next month."
>>28899405She can work. If she isn't dumping assloads of information about her location into Chirpee, she would make a great spy.
>>28899334>shooting Soul GemsLegal protocol must be followed!They will have a trial, where they will be found guilty and then properly sentenced to execution.
>>28899405She can always do things in exchange for her life.
>>28899432I love it
>>28899432So I'm totally up for this!
>>28899265"GAHAHA! Hey Malal, let's go beat up random magical girls who like like they are up to no good and take their pantsu!"
>>28899434It's implied by her Chirpee stream that she already does this stuff as a matter of course.
>>28899432Word' get out that we're holding her. It's a shame, though, I was looking to the idol porn.
>>28899432I reckon that threatening to hold her in custody while her assistant ruins everything is the best possible threat we can make.
>>28899432>>"I'm not going to hurt you, NECO. No, I've got a much worse punishment in store for you...">>Hand her our phone with her chirpee page up, with Filthy Assistants promise to make Idol Porn is Real>>"I'm going to keep you here for the next month."I love it.
>>28899236>"Oh, those were my manuscripts for Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi, Sempai. Around thirty future volumes' worth." Midori replies beside you, as the both of you share the back seat of the company car Kyoko's driving you back into the city with.>"I...I've decided to take the story in a different direction than I originally planned, Sempai, and what I had already drawn didn't really fit. So I had them burned to start over."It's a bit dramatic gesture, but it pretty clearly says "I'm disregarding what I dreamed up about you and accepting you for what you really are, Semp... Chiaki." She passed the Murderface Experience. I'm proud of her. Now let's hope she doesn't die horribly despite all the deathflags triggered.
>>28899273>[x]Go take care of NECO first, while you're still in a relatively good mood.
>>28899455Yeah, I agree with this, threaten to keep her captive until her assistant ruins all journalistic integrity her twitter managed to gather.
Sniff sniff, I thought my plan was awesome.
>>28899402She's probably cutting back on the porn now that there's a distinct chance of it happening IRL.
>>28899432I was forcing myself to stay awake, just so we don't fuck up with NECO.We're in good hands.
ALT VERSION: Chiaki carries in a blue rose, between her teeth.
>>28899496She may be an annoying bitch, but her info is pretty damn accurate.

>>28899432I like this plan. This is a good plan.

>>28899518Shut uuuuup. Don't give him ideas!
>>28899459>Now let's hope she doesn't die horribly despite all the deathflags triggered.Why would you hope for that? As an avid Chiaki x Midori shipper, I'm longing for the horrible pain and suffering that comes from two Magical Girls engaging in forbidden love.I bet Sayaka kills Midori to save Kyouko, and Kyouko can never forgive her for it.
>>28899518>Wendy off on her own, reading her favorite series>"It got so shitty...why did it get so shitty...?">on her own, crying
>>28899492Reminds me, weren't we getting a new hat logo at some point?
>>28899518I don't think shes capable of crying.
>>28899547>on her own, staring blankly with the most haunted eyes
>>28899518Anon, stop, Decu gave me enough feels to last through the Christmas.
>>28899547Don't fucking say things like that, lest ye be proven wrong.It's tempting fate.
>>28899518>Chiaki kills Midori>Midori's last words are "But I... retconned... this part..."
>>28899540please. It's like you're an amateur at this noir stuff.>implying Kyoko doesn't die to save Midori, and Sayaka goes axe-happy on us for "killing" Kyoko to save our own lover
>>28899561But anon, you can't ride with hope.Hope rides alone.
>>28899318GODDAMNIT WHAT SERIES IS THAT GIF FROM!?
>>28899609Boku no Chuunibyou demo Koi ga shitai!
>>28899226On the subject of the Midori pairing, I think she and Chiaki go together extremely well. Yeah, it started off as hero worship, but Midori has already been disabused of those notions several times over. Not only because of how she was treated when she was first recruited, what happened when they got to the Siberian Base, AND getting a firsthand view of all of Chiaki's neuroses in the barrier. Midori already knows Chiaki better than anyone, with the possible exception of Mami. And she still dove into the Barrier, not to save Murder Mayumi, but to save the sempai that she loved. That aside, they showed some really interesting chemistry early on and even now, with Midori being aggressive and then shy, and Chiaki doing the same. Seeing how the two act around each other is basically seeing two people falling in love. It’s adorable
>>28899623I like Midori, I really do, but I want to see more of her as a Callidus and less of her as a moeblob before I start endorsing her as a serious waifu candidate.I mean, not that that matters, 'cause anon will do what anon will do and that's how the catfood crumbles, but y'know.
>>28899623>Seeing how the two act around each other is basically seeing two people falling in love. Well, there's our problem right there.We're a board full of autistic neckbeards. The closest we've ever gotten to knowing what that looks like IRL is awkward obsessive crushes that are firmly rejected should the object of our lusts ever find out about them.
Alright, pausing for now! NECO's interrogation to begin Saturday night, as this week is a bit of a busy one for me! Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always encouraged!Sorry for the delays and mistakes in posting, I've been a bit under the weather lately. But anyway, no writeups for tonight I think, so questions answered before I go to bed!
>>28899649to be fair, all the moeblobbing has been around Chiaki and with how well she took the Prophetic news I'm quite hopeful!
>>28899649>not "y'nyaow"losing your touch, you fucking feline
>>28899649That's why we're gunning to get her installed in the warmasters office as a fixture so that we Vindicare and Eversors can do what we do best without getting bogged down with information processing.
>>28899649>>I like Midori, I really do, but I want to see more of her as a Callidus and less of her as a moeblob I can agree to this because I like Midori best when she's pursuing Chiaki. It's understandable that she'd be a little overwhelmed given the circumstances, but I want to see more of the other sides of her that we haven't seen in several dozen threads
>>28899670It's probably due to only having good housekeeping magazines in the silent room
>>28899659Please, refer to >>28897898
>>28899659What would you do if we got out of hand during a flashback and got someone thats supposed to appear later killed off?
>>28899649But the Midori part of the Siberia arc was all about that you dumb cat.She flipped Pinky. Pinky!
>>28899623Well they are certainly in love and adorable together. I would give their relationship at max two years before that love has cold down and they break up because of their differences. Love like that does not last and the thing that has to keep the relationship going after that are common interests. Something they do not have.I would say Midori makes a great friend who can offset Chiaki's temperament and such. But outside of Hollywood that does not work in a relationship.
>>28899659When are we getting that copy of the Magical Girl's Uplifting Primer we were supposed to get?
>>28899703And that was her finest hour and one of the best parts of the quest, nya.But I really miss that part of her and it doesn't really show up anyawhere else on camera.
>>28899703And crammed before and after that was as much moeblobbery as possible
>>28899703And Bitchslaped Kharn so hard she made her go into an emotional Pdsd attack
>>28899623I understand you points but I really see it more as Chiaki being a means to Midori to mature into a heroic magical girl and stop being only 'moe'>>28899649> 'cause anon will do what anon will doan unfortunate truth>>28899659Thanks for running Decultur
>>28899653Looks like you've never found the object of your desire to be obsessively crushing on you, too.It's a horrific, sweet thing.
>>28899701Well, I usually have to find a way around that! It's nearly happened a couple of times but I haven't really had to do anything drastic so far with the flashbacks.If it's not a central character, I'll replace!
>>28899659Thanks for running, hope you get well soon!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!I was tempted to put an error in the description but ultimately decided against it... I would have regretted it even if i did it the other way.
>>28899659Would you be more of an S-Idol, or an M-Idol, Decu?
>>28899693also Hat finish this someday you biased son of a toad
>>28899723We need to see snippets of Midori's handiwork outside the times she's with Chiaki.Like how she solved that kidnapping job in record time with no casualties. Managed to impress Kyouko and all.It actually seems like a potential good topic for a writeup, so long as whoever does it runs everything by Decu beforehand.
>>28899659Is there any news on that one crossover you have with Magia?
>>28899756SecondingWe need more Wendy desperately
>>28899547>I don't think shes capable of crying.The fuck? Did you already forget the Kharn Flashback?
>>28899757We could also use some snippets of MMxMM.
>>28899698I'll definitely keep in mind, thank you!>>28899720Hahaha! Well, er, I have it all written out in a notebook, but it'll take time to transcribe. Soon enough, though, I've been patterning it after the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer. I guess I can just post the main rules, though!
>>28899757Didn't Midorin actually do a write-up forever ago, sounds like something in her field.
>>28899659Thanks for running, man! And I hope you feel better soon, yo. Rest up and shit as much as you can get away with, your health is important!Plz no skip on threads, though.
>>28899717So you reckon their love will cool down into close friendship?Makes sense. I could see it happening.
>>28899739Does Sayaka know how to breakdance?
>>28899782Midori writefag is kinda shy and has mostly stuck to drawing things. We've been trying to urge her to write more, nya~
>>28899717Differences, if they're not irreconcilable, are what makes a relationship grow. Honestly, I see many positive things, and happiness, in a relationship for the both of them. Not without difficulty, Midori had already taken a lot of brunt on that end, but a satisfying relationship all around. >>28899729Midori is already plenty heroic. See her Barrier Arc. I want more of that, personally. >>28899756But you didn't say the magic word!
>>28899774I really, really want to see this.So badly.
>>28899812Pretty please with poison on top?No pressure, but I keep coming across it and thinking 'wah this is so cute why isn't it finished'!
>>28899659If you do "How the Green Stole Christmas", will you be posting with a Seussian rhyme scheme?
>>28899723I dunno, when she slipped into the concert as tittymonster Megahomu was cool.Speaking of which, are we ever going to get to see Kyouko and Midorin's virtuous mission?
>>28899778So how many Meguca's does the First Officio have on its active roster and in the entirety of their Officio?Will we get a chance to look over past trials to see how they're supposed to be done before we inevitably cock up the one we're presiding over?
>>28899807Dammit Midori writefag write more! We like your stuff!
>>28899733It was mainly horrifying.>That girl you dated that carved your name with a box cutter into her arms and legs or would show up at your at 4 o clock in the night at your place, when you were coming home from your shift, standing motionlessly in the corridor that leds up to your flat for hours in the darkness
>>28899723a unrelated question NECO: did you already taken a look at the SMT quest?>>28899756although I don't horribly dislike Midori it would be good to have mare art of the other characters so I'm also requesting this>>28899812I'll agree that the Barrier Arc gave her a lot of character development but I think that there still need to grow a bit more
>>28899748Hahaha, I'm not really all that sure! I guess a lot of people shout at me, though...>>28899760Oh, yes! It's definitely going to happen, but we're just laying the groundwork for it for now.>>28899774I'll keep this in mind!>>28899785Definitely not! I have a two-day work thing out of town that starts at Friday so I can't run at that point, but I'll definitely do so after.Thanks!>>28899803Hahaha! Yes, she does.
>>28899756I don't know. I kind of like the sketchy quality.It mirrors our memories of the whole affair
>>28899796Now this is all saying that they live long enough for this to happen xD>>28899812Differences can make a relationship grow but there has to be more similarities than differences. Otherwise you just end up in each others throats to often once the initial love has died down. It is better to have a friend to fill that purpose. The more time you spend with a person the less patience you going to have with that person.
>>28899918>there has to be more similarities than differences.nope.The differences just have to be complementary.
>>28899887Say, since we ar Warmaster and have Aide`s now.. Should we decide for Midori or/and some of our other Aides to handle stuff like interogating the Prophet-Girls or something else that may be vital to the plot, would we get to switch to that Character`s Perspective or is it OFF-SCREEN only?Also, thanks for the thread, man, was a fun read!
>>28899879I did and it's significantly different from what I'd want to run, but I really need to get organized to do anything. And I'm bad at that.
>>28898884>>28899887If Hat is right do we still have to confess to Midori or what?
>>28899887Am I going to have to read the other quest to be able to follow along?
>>28899147>I honestly interpreted that "Get things right" promise as "Don't fuck up with Midori like you did with me"Thank God. I thought I was the only one.
>>28899935And I'm saying that that is only the case in movies. That thing never works in a real relationship because after a while you won't be able to put up with each other any longer unless you have similar interests that weighs it out.
>>28899946If you decide to delegate that stuff to them, then it'd be mostly offscreen unless it was super important and vital, yeah. And thanks, I'm glad you like it!>>28899829Hahaha, I don't think I can do that for an entire thread!>>28899843The First Officio always has twenty Magical Girls, with five always in reserve. Those 'reserve' five are the strongest of the First, along with the Warmaster.Also, yes, Mami could show you past trials if you want!
>>28899887Has Midori been in contact with her parents since she contracted? How do Officios handle family?Have there been any real high-profile contractees for an Officio?Are there any non-incubator/non-meguca organizations that are taking steps to address the growing influence of the Officios?
>>28899987You mean it's never worked out for you
>>28899659Can we get an update on the known contents of our inventory? Like, do we still have the rest of that bouquet of blue roses we got when we came back from Siberia? Do perishables kept in our inventory spoil?
>>28899959good to knowI wish you luck with that NECO>>28899987It gives me hope to see that there are more than two people who don't ship MidoriXChiaki because some times it gets overwhelming
>>28899174>>28899207>>28899221I think a MMxMM VN would be more interesting. You are Magical Midori and each route focuses on different main girl like MurderMayumi, Anna Kalashnikova or Magical Mimiko.
>>28900024I'm not sure if shipping is a term that applies to a boat that has long since set sail and is, infact, nearly at it's destination.
>>28900025I wouldn't mind seeing a Killer Kokonoe or Slayer Sayoko route, either
>>28900010Not just for me. I have seen a ridiculous amount of break ups for this reason. And I have never seen it work.
>>28899807To tell the truth I thought you and the Midori writefag were the same person
>>28900024I also don't ship them but that's because I am still holding out for watermelon endOr at least Wendy and Midori since we know anon aren't dropping Midori any time soonI just keep quiet because I hate waifu wars
>>28900025>100% completion unlocks a bonus ending scene>Chiaki playfully scolding Midori for writing her self-insert in AUs with other girls, looks like flirting, then it fades out to distant gunshots and Chiaki swearing.
>>28900075I did some editing for her, but no, for once it wasn't me.
>>28899962I would say so. Chiaki would need the conviction to do that kind of thing so that it's 'official', not only for Midori but also for her.>>28899969Ah, I wouldn't say so! It'd be great, but I think how we're going to do it, it'll be self-contained mostly.>>28900002Midori should have had contact with her parents as soon as she got back and was able to. And Officios handle family very well - insurance, health benefits, accident/death benefits in case the Magical Girl kicks it. At least, for Kyuubey.High-profile contractees...I'm guessing like movie stars or really important people as contractees? Definitely! You wouldn't really know, though, because they keep that under wraps.Also, definitely there are. Some of them actually ally with the more mercenary of Officios, like the Sixteenth.>>28900012Inventory stuff usually don't perish, as it's a magical inventory. So yes, you still have them, and they're still blue.
>>28900025Also Murder Mimiko is the Yandere-Route and if you make the mistake of playing her route first she does something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=qmGKOgmPDVM#t=229
So what would How the Green Stole Christmas even be about?I need to know. For reasons.
>>28900134Did murderface ever stash spare food in her shield and forget about it? Is there a half eaten burger from when she visited Wendy floating about in the inventory?
Lost a huge reply that I had been working on because I tapped "home" instead of submit, so I'll just summarize and say that Chiaki I'd a blank slate with no interests aside from pancakes, but players have steered her towards a curiosity in MMxMM, at least. It's a start and I want to see more of Chiaki and Midori, hopefully in a situation where Midori is more collected and not so nervous
>>28900194I don't think anyone's really sure? People keep mentioning it, but I think some anon made it up.It'd probably be about Midori NTRing Iori and Wendy, though, if I wrote it.
>>28900194MMxMM Christmas Doujin?
>>28900199Misread that as Wendy's. Picturing Wendy asking if murder face wanted fries with that.
>>28900209Midori needs act a little more like when Chiaki told her about the prophet.
Well I'm holding out for ChiakixWendy. Even if I currently seem to be in a minority.
>>28900210>>28900216Oh. That's different from what I thought it would be.
>>28900047>And I have never seen it work.And I have. 30+ years and still working.
>>28900210does it count as NTR if one or both participants have been dead?Because even marriage is only until death do you part.
>>28900246Oddly enough, the Wendy's girl actually looks like Wendy if she were doing Little House on the Prairie cosplay.
>>28900268Yes.>>28900295That was totally accidental but funny.ACTUAL NAME ORIGINS NOBODY CARES ABOUT: Madotsuki = 'window', 'Wendy' sounds vaguely like 'window', while also being more approachable than Madeleine or something for a modern, fairly gruff girl
>>28900250It's a minority that I'm not against? I just think Midori works better in every way. Still, nothing against Wendy. I think she's a great character and one that I really like. I just like Chiaki and Midori better
>>28900267And you are telling me that you have almost nothing in common with your partner? Then what do you do together?
>>28900338Talk about what we've done during the day, what we plan to do the next day or if there's something coming up. Talk about current events in the news. I have my hobbies, she has hers, and they're not really related at all.
>>28900326Well I have nothing against Midori but I think Wendy works better xD
>>28900338I'm mostly batting for Team Wendy and I still agree it seems fine to have your own hobbies and the like if you still care for each other. Take a little interest in things that are important to your partner, even if you don't throw yourself into them completely, and it'll do a lot for a healthy relationship.And to Chiaki's credit, that's what she's been doing. And Midori tries, too.
>>28900326Then I must say I respectably disagree with you sir and request that we continue this civil discussion at another time
>>28900326actually I have a feeling that the reason Wendy and Murderface worked so well together is that there was basically no judgement or attempts to change the other.They were just kinda comfy together and I don't think that could work now.Wendy would probably say that Kong has gotten soft. I'm not even sure the assessment is wrong.
>>28900390Well ok then you have proven me wrong :/ I don't think I would like a relationship like that so I still think we should go for Wendy. Guess it's just down to preference then :/
>>28900458Aaaand autocorrect ruins my joke by turning one word into another similar word
>>28900419>And Midori tries, too.Does Chiaki even have any current hobbies?We have hobbies that Murderface used to have, as well as previous Murderfaces, but nothing truly Chiaki.Unless you include teasing Midori; Murderface never seemed to be the type to joke around or tease people in any of the flashbacks or when brought up in conversations.
>>28900473you're not obligated to.Not one type of relationship works for every couple.
>>28900497We should start knitting again.
>>28900497In a sense, you could say that "trying to be a normal human being to Midori" IS Chiaki's hobby.
>>28900497It's a bit odd. Chiaki isn't quite a blank slate, but she'll need to find some hobbies for herself. Hopefully not hanging around Internet image boards.
>>28900497I emphasize 'tries', but she does know the things that Chiaki likes, and I can't even argue she wouldn't leap on anything that she actually said was a hobby. Watch, we'll catch her reading the Anarchist's Cookbook or something now that bomb assembly or something has come up.
>>28900497We should start making bombs again ^^
>>28900544I think the officios would have some better books on things that go boom than anarchistsThe explosives section in it is actually really quite small
>>28900552homemade bombs are for people who don't have pint-sized arms dealers.
>>28900528We should start making explosive "Chiaki Specials" again. Just for relaxation purposes.
>>28900552>>28900528Compromise and knit bombs.
>>28900458>>28900481It's alright, anon. I have to be leaving for my lunch break now and it's really short so I'm on the clock and won't be chatting anymore. >>28900497Well, we did ask for the rest of the published volumes of MMxMM. Other than that and pancakes, Chiaki hasnt really expressed any interests. Reading, maybe? Seems to suit her. Anyways, I'll see you guys at the next thread!
>>28900569I just think it would be a relaxing hobby. Not saying we are going to use them.
>>28900568I didn't say Midori was good at it, I said she tries.
>>28900528I support this course, it's very relaxing.
>>28900580Hence why I said continue it at another time, I figured you were sneaking peeks while at work and were in danger of getting caught
>>28900594I don't expect her to be good at it I just figured she would go to the officio library or something and look for a "shit goes boom, how to make" book in the occupational skills sectionNow that I say this I wonder what the officio archives / library are like
>>28900528Yes, and if we ask Mami to teach us again, she'll probably be delighted.We can knit a scarf for Midori, and mittens for Mami.
>>28900552>>28900569>>28900577Now that I think about it, Chiaki would most likely make some kickass fireworks. Slightly more respectable as a hobby than rigging IEDs.
>>28900631We knit midori a hat
Honestly, we don't really need a hobby until we get into a situation where we have free time in which to practice it.Chiaki doesn't really have an "off" switch. Neither did Murderface: While she technically had a lot more downtime, she filled it with whiskey and painkillers, making it effectively identical to her mission time.
>>28900631Chiaki and Midori shared scarf, Hat-chan! Someone tell her!
>>28900648...Come to think of it, Midori is actually trying to get us quit our hobbies.
>>28900648Yes but it would probably be healthy to get one and take some free time.
>>28900667Nothing wrong with being a connoisseur of fine drinks.Although I don't think such a thing exists for pharmaceutical products.
>>28900657Midori only stole our cigs and I support her on this.
>>28900699Quoted the wrong post. Meant to link >>28900667
>>28900699But smoking is hot.
We could try photography. We seem to have a pretty detailed knowledge of cameras. Probably from Homura when she was in stalking mode during the loops.Also, bonsai trees. And fruit bushes. Anything that we could theoretically get something to make pancake syrup from.
>>28900722We're Warmaster. We can afford better smokes now. Like cigarillos.
>>28900722Not who you are responding to, and while some folks associate smoking that way, I personally associate it with foul smelling old men, cancer, and death.And while Murderface may be female and immune to cancer, it doesn't change my association.Rule of cool for the setting? Sure, but nothing more than that resonates with me.
>>28900791I don't find smoking even remotely attractive on anyone.
>>28900681...I don't think you're paranoid enough for this thread.Jeez, Wendy is right. We DID get soft. Softer than the softest sofa in the soft sofa store.
>>28900860Maybe he has become so paranoid that it was not possible to get any more paranoid and he looped back to relaxed?
>>28900860I think taking time of to make extra bombs for "helth" reasons is well within the paranoia threshold of the thread :P
>>28900910>maybe Christmas doesn't come from the store>maybe Christmas means make your own C4
>>28899723Someone shade this drawing already...
>>28901009>"Sempai I made you this bomb!"
>>28900145what the fuck man
>>28900145Oh god what.I.. I didnt expect that.
>>28897798>We're taking Gorefather, surely?I just remembered this, and I'll have to remember to mention it at the beginning of next thread:We've been warned not to carry all of our Golden Weapons on us at once. GM-warning through an in-character feeling that doing so would be a really bad idea.So carry only 2 Golden Weapons, 3 max, at a time.
>>28901777Well, yeah. Kirika and Gorefather.I feel Kirika will go along with this one if it means seeing Oriko and getting another shot at our head.Justice, I'm sure, will find us when and if we need it.
>>28900145Hopefully this gets an English release.
>>28901777Would this mean that when we get 4 weapons, we can carry 3, or is the limit 2?
>>28901969There's no hard limit. Just a feeling that we shouldn't.I trust Chiaki's gut on this, though.We'll just have to see if she feels any different.From a purely practical standpoint, carrying all the golden weapons at once is a great way for them all to fall into someone else's hands just by taking us out.
>>28901969We have four already: the Deagle, the Bangles, the Sword and the Axes.If we can bludgeon Kirika into not being such a bitch, we might want to let Sayaka have the Sword. She'd certainly be better at using it.
>>28902035fuck no. She had the willpower to reject it once already. Lets not force her to do it again.
>>28902035We had to go to Syberia and have all that crap happen to us JUST so we could wield the weapons without going mad. Letting anybody else handle them is a bad idea.
We might want to see if Coobs can remove a soul from a Golden Weapon and stick it in a new Gem. With enough magic, it could probably regrow a body after that.
>>28902074He can't.He already had the lab examine the weapons. If we can believe the report we got back, they couldn't even tell that they have souls inside.
>>28902074>>28902113Clearly, we need to get a body, then physically stick the weapons inside to see if it works.
>>28902035>we might want to let Sayaka have the Sword.We had to have the Procedure done on us just so we could wield the Weapons without being corrupted, and you want to give that to Sayaka?Did you completely forget what the Golden Weapons do to a person?
>>28902229Isn't that basically what Kirika was doing when we had to retire her?Lets not do that.
>>28902259in fairness with Sayaka the difference would be difficult to detect what with her quite natually being a raging hellbitch.
>>28902074>>28902113We had Coobie examine them and according to him these are apparently completly mundane weapons.
>>28902246>Did you completely forget what the Golden Weapons do to a person?Yes, actually. It's kind of been a while.In that case, though, we might want to have our Equerry train us with some normal swords so that we aren't completely shit with our Golden one.
>>28902287We don't need training, per se. Because the soul of the person inside can guide you, as we experienced with Yuu.Of course, whether Chiaki would want to entrust Kirika with that is another matter entirely.
>>28902283Kyuubey also examined our hat and came to the conclusion that it was just a hat. Granted that was only a cursory examination, but I think we have enough first-hand experience to conclude that Pinky is able to stick things inside other things in ways that thwart Kyuubey's ability to detect them.
>>28902323Physical conditioning is probably more important than acquisition of actual skill. Because it's one thing to be guided by the soul within the weapon: It's another thing entirely to have your body keep up with them.
>>28902358Sometimes sufficiently advanced alien science just isn't advanced enough to keep up with magic.
>>28902323We tell Kirika that we need her help to get Oriko away from the uberbitch inside the Staff. She might be willing to not screw us over if we're using her for that purpose.
>>28902465>She might be willing to not screw us over if we're using her for that purpose.She may also lie to us so that she can be there to help screw us over, helping Oriko and Ahriman.
>>28902259We should get someone who can grow back a body.Sayaka would be good, we can lop off a limb or two and keep them in cold storage while she regrows em, then keep removing organs until she's got two of herself. Then we reassemble all the pieces and see if we can't put someone else in Mickey's body.
>>28902819dr strauss plz go
>>28902837I'd like to take a moment to address you directly, Dr. Strauss. Yes. I'm talking to you, the once-might Director. I have a question for you. How could you have thrown it all away? It staggers the mind. A woman of science, with the ability to sway reactionary and fearful minds toward the truth, choosing instead to embark on a path of ignorance and decay. Make no mistake, Dr. Strauss. This is not a scientific revolution you have sparked... this is death and finality. You have plunged Meguca-kind into freefall. Even if you offered your surrender now, I cannot guarantee that our Incubators would accept it. At the moment, I fear they have begun to look upon even me with suspicion. So much for serving as Meguca-kind's representative. Help me win back their trust, Dr. Strauss. Surrender while you still can. Help ensure that Meguca-kind's trust in you is not misguided. Do what is right, Dr. Strauss. Serve Magical Girls everywhere.
>>28903116I'm not Dr. Strauss.
