Have to forget again? Is she saying that your amnesia will come around to fuck you in the ass again, but this time deliberately triggered by something or somebody? Or is this shit cyclical - like something out of those stupid Western movies that use amnesia as some sort of shitty plot device to throw the viewer in the thick of things and skip much-needed backstory and world-building?"..." NECO seems to grow silent here, her expression suddenly wary. As if she wasn't expecting you to pick up on that. "I don't know, exactly," the young girl finally murmurs. "There's...Malal left me enough information about stuff I should know, but about you, specifically? About your amnesia?" She shakes her head. "I don't think even she knew anything about it, besides the fact that it's there, and it could relapse at any time. She just made sure that if it did relapse, then you'd have something to remind you, nya."
>>29146467Hnh. Alright. You're not convinced she's telling everything, but that's fine. You'll get back to that later.You then ask her about the passwords the app keeps asking you for. You're still missing a few, here. If she's as buddy-buddy with Malal as she says she is, then she could probably give you the remaining two passwords to unlock the rest, right?NECO blinks at this. "Well, er...I guess I could, nya...I know some, but obviously not everything. You know how Malal's like." It's here that she holds out a hand. "Here, lemme see your smartphone for a minute, I'll enter it for you, nya."What do you do?Hand over your smartphone....No. Just tell me and I'll enter it myself.
There's a bunch of people saying to show her the Chirpee feed, and I was one of them. But now I think it's better if we don't. We let her find out on her own. After taking certain measures.After hearing her sob story, we should convene with Sayaka and discuss The Plan. Which is to give the filthy assistant's takeover as much ground as it can possibly get. We're warmaster, we can have the entire fucking building subscribe to the feed and clamoring for MOAR IDOL GOSSIP and other such vapid nonsense. Keep this up all day. Have her go out and spread the word since us leaving would raise all kinds of alarms.In the meantime, we go back and give NECO everything she wants except access to her Chirpee feed (say we're sanitizing her phone or something and that we don't give ours out for reasons). Give her the interview with Chiaki. Give her the interview with Midori. Hell, introduce her to Kumatora, the MG we trained. Keep her busy while giving the filthy assistant a swelled head.But eventually we'll have to say goodbye. Maybe give her a job offer. NECO will likely decline unless the hat does its magic. And so we part... and NECO discovers her Chirpee feed hijacked. No biggie, just shoo out the rabble and everything goes back to normal right?Wroooooooooong! The office rallies for MOAR IDOL GOSSIP and wonders who this skank reporter is, flooding her with demands to do more idol stuff and put filthy assistant back in charge. She could, you know, make another Chirpee, but by then the damage to her ego and reputation should be done. And we'll have her crawling back to us, begging for a means to put her journalistic integrity to use other than... IDOL GOSSIP!...Yeah, now that I type it all out, it actually sounds kind of dumb. Let's just go with the hat and save the revenge for later.

>>29146480>[X]...No. Just tell me and I'll enter it myself.
>>29146480[x]...No. Just tell me and I'll enter it myself.
Reminder from last nightWe just need to wait her out.[X] Ahahaha no
>>29146467>[X]...No. Just tell me and I'll enter it myself.No one touches our phone but us.
>>29146480[x]No, just tell me.Handing her phone is a BAD, BAD idea because a) she could send a text to a contact and cause all kinds of trouble or generally contact someone (such as Sayaka) and cause all kinds of trouble, b) we don't know if pinky knows of our progress on the phone, c)she might try and break it, which admittedly is a minor convenience but still, and d)After last time's proceeding we need to get some kind of grip on the situation.
>>29146480[X] no, just tell me and I'll enter it myself.
>>2914648[X] Actually, never mind. I'll do it the hard way. I've got the weirdest feeling.[recall that we're not actually convinced that Malal wrote the diary.]
>>29146500While I would love to shit all over NECO's chirpee, I can see The Plan blowing up in Chiaki's face in more ways than one.
>>29146480[x]...No. Just tell me and I'll enter it myself.Not even a NECO thing, no way are we letting others handle that phone unless required to.
The other thing to note is that if she lists off all the passwords she knows, we get to see what info Malal thought to trust her with. It's a good way to gauge what she may or may not know.
By the way, a couple of conclusions that were reached from last night's threads:-As a journalist, she's been through some shit in terms of physical torture and threats in general. Violence at this stage may not prove useful, at least until she's been worn down some.-Magical tactics may work - although it will make her an enemy, suggestions such as cutting her off from stimuli for some time or threatening to wipe her memories of Mala were thrown around. Chances our she's seen all the regular torture techiques we know of.-Sayaka is just outside the room, so doing anything which may cause any major sounds won't work in our favour in case she tries to justice our ass - she knows and is very invested in Izumi/NECO.-The plan, IIRC, was "listen to her story in her entirety, then dismiss it and try to found out whatever we really want before deciding what to do about her".
>>29146480Haha, no. Nice try.
>>29146480[ x ]...No. Just tell me and I'll enter it myself.I want to know the passwords too not just entries.
Eversor training eventually
>>29146598yeah, the passwords are important. They're usually contextual clues as to what the entry relates to.
>>29146571Every proposition you made is retarded and has the sideeffect of antagonizing the cat for a pretty vague reason.I see no need to do this.
>>29146480This concludes our current voting period.Thank you for your participation!
>>29146608[X] Seriously. What the fucking fuck is your actual deal, Neco.>>29146618>antagonizing the catAll the reason I need. And before you give me the "but muh Malal said", an antagonist relationship doesn't mean you can't work with someone. Just look at Sayaka
>>29146650>All the reason I need.Then it is retarded and you are a chucklefuck. Please commit Sudoku.
>>29146662Holy shit, look at all this mad.
After 163 threads, I finally catch one!
>>29146650>>29146662>>29146689God damn it guys the thread just started, don't shit on it already.
>>29146692Welcome aboard! Here, on the house!
>>29146662No, retarded is treating the entire world with kid gloves and expecting it not to shit in your eyesockets after it shanks you the gut and steals your wallet.But fine, let's try it your way and just fucking give everyone we meet a handjob.
>>29146710Welcome to Magical Girl Flame War Quest now with extra flame war.
>>29146715[X] Bribe NECO with handjobs
>>29146719And Hat-chan. She's nice
>>29146755It's the truth.
>>29146467>"I don't think even she knew anything about it, besides the fact that it's there, and it could relapse at any time. She just made sure that if it did relapse, then you'd have something to remind you, nya."This is stuff we need to make Blueberry aware of.Seems like her paranoia of us is right on the money.
>>29146788That's not nice anon.
>>29146801And, you know. Probably Midori too.
>>29146816To be fair, we're unlikely to wake up in a homicidal rage towards Midori. But yes, we probably should.
>>29146801I reckon she's hiding shit. She said if we 'need' to forget again. Not 'if we do' or whatever. That doesn't gel with her explanation.
>>29146832Yes, but we're not likely to get anything out of her by pressing it."Journalist knows more than is telling us": News at 11 shocker.
>>29146600It's good to see Sallaka enjoying life.
>>29146801Did we forget that Murderface relapsed already after the Golden Weapon procedure?That might've been the "need to" relapse.
>>29146600>>29146906She gets training all day every day.
>>29146930More like the other way around, since we hear in this timeline Sayaka tops.
>>29146929Nope.But I think we were kind of hoping we might be done with it now.
>>29146503 >>29146507 >>29146514 >>29146521"For real?" NECO frowns, before shrugging. "It wasn't, like, I was gonna use up your minutes or break it or something, nya. But that's okay, I can just tell you." It's here that she toys with her handcuffs, tugging at it absently. "Hnn. Let me try and remember...you're missing two more, right? If that's the case, then you're probably still at the first set..."The first set? There's OTHER sets, besides the one you're currently trying to unlock?"I'm...I guess? Look, I keep telling you, Malal didn't tell me everything, nya!" The blonde girl snaps at you, before holding her free hand up to her forehead, her brow furrowing. "Urrr...first set, first set...AH!" Her eyes go wide, before pointing towards you. "GREEN! You haven't tried that one yet, right? Right?"You narrow your eyes at NECO, before pulling out your smartphone from your inventory. ...No, you haven't tried that yet. How did she know that?"You keep getting hung up on the details, nya." NECO shakes her head here, looking all smug again. "Just try it out and see!"Well, even if you wanted to try it out, you can't. The journal app locks itself after every entry unlock, didn't she know that? And you just unlocked two of them last night, so it's probably going to be a few days before...uh...You blink at your smartphone screen.And there, right in the middle of the display, is the journal app. Unlocked and asking for a password.You look up at NECO, the girl only looking more and more self-satisfied by the second.How did she know that--"Magic! Or, more honestly, I don't really know, nya!" NECO grins, seemingly content enough to take credit for it. "Go ahead and enter it anyway, see what we get!"Right. Whatever.You glare down at your phone and tap out the five-letter password carefully.G R E E N[PASSWORD ACCEPTED.][UNLOCKING ENTRY #5][1/2]
>>29146973I think the phrasing is ambigious enough that what we could have either taken "we may/need to forget again" or "the reason we forgot in the first place was because we needed to".
>>29146995Fucking Malal.Bury head in hands.She even saw this coming, didn't she.I want to get off Madoka Kaname's Wild Ride.
>>29146995It will jut be a single word: DANGER
>>29146995>G R E E N>[PASSWORD ACCEPTED.]>[UNLOCKING ENTRY #5]My shadowruns are flaring up horribly. Please don't say that Midori is some kind of interdimensional monster thing that will displace Pinky as the next big bad.
>>29147020The ride never ends.
>>29146995[I was as surprised as anyone when I saw the people you'd started to gather around you, but probably not more surprised than I was when I saw Hanegawa Midori. She doesn't deserve this, and you know she doesn't. Nobody does. But where she's concerned, maybe the alternative really is worse. Just remember - the most dangerous Callidus is the one you invite into your bed. Or to live in your apartment.][An old magical girl once told me: Do not fear your enemies, for only a friend can betray you. Then she punched me in the stomach. Remember that.][Oh, and don't eat the banana ramen. It'll make you crazy sick. Like wow.]"Well?" Izumi grins at you, leaning forward. "What does it say? Did it unlock something or what, nya?"How do you react?Read the entry out to her.Shake your head. You'll keep it to yourself for now. What's the other password?
>>29147020>This ride is dildoes.
>>29147032>[x]Shake your head. You'll keep it to yourself for now. What's the other password?IS THIS CAT FUCKING WITH MY PHONE GODDAMN
>>29147032>[X]Shake your head. You'll keep it to yourself for now. What's the other password?
>>29147005>"the reason we forgot in the first place was because we needed to".Which of course, doesn't rule out the possibility of us needing to forget again.But the real questions are, who needs us to forget.The worst thing is we probably can't even find out what triggers it because every time we do, we'll probably amnesia again.Profoundly unacceptable situation.
>>29147025I hope she does, and Chiaki will have to kill her with no Deus Ex Machina to bring her back.That would be only proper.
>>29147020>>29147021>>29147025She was probably refering to Ruri, not Midori.
>>29147032>Nothing I didn't know.
>>29147032We don't give this cat any more than we have to.[x] Shake your head.
>>29147047>>29147032Sure, ruri.Ruri is Malal's codeword for Midori.
>>29147032[x] "Yes, it unlocked an entry. Most curious. What is the other one?"
>>29147032>[x]Read the entry out to her."How is this possible? The stuff here obviously comes from after the diary app was locked into the phone?"
>>29147032[X] Enter IZUMIAnd then decide what to tell her.
>>29147032[x] "It was some wonderful advice regarding noodles. Next?"
>>29147032[X]Yes but you'll keep it to yourself for now.we should try out Izumi.
>>29147043Probably not. Most likely it's just FUCKING MALAL, knowing everything and being everywhere as usual.
>>29147073This is actually a pretty good idea.
>>29147066We already know that Malal could see the future.
>>29147032[ x ] It is about Midori, as you should've guessed. Doesn't say much really.
>>29147047...no, he could have something here.we've seen Ruri referenced at least once last thread. A gesture, a wink Izumi did reminded of her.Sudden attack of the Shadowruns, mayne.
>>29147032[x] Enter 'IZUMI'
>>29147093this then enter:I Z U M I
>>29147032[x] "It said that you should totally eat the banana ramen."
>>29147032[x]Read the entry out to her.[x]"How could she have known that? For fucks sake, I shoot her damn legs off and even then I choose to spare her on a on a whim!"This fucking Diary is even worse than that fucking cat.
>>29147073[x]This.I'm not keen on the idea of lying to her after she helped us. Give and take.
>>29147032[x] these >>29147105 >>29147077
>>29147032[x] " Apparently, Bananas are awesome."Enter IzumiI'd also suggest NOT making any references to Ramen - she'd guess right away who that was, and use it against us.So vetoing>>29147066>>29147077>>29147093>>29147105
>>29147032>[x]Shake your head. You'll keep it to yourself for now. What's the other password?FUCKING MALAL. How much did she predict?
G-g-g-GHOST MARAR!She's possessing our smartphone, isn't she? Or Pinkdokami really is omniscient.
>>29147128[x]Vetoing because you are a vetoing tardlett.
>>29147139Seemingly, just about everything. At least where we're concerned.
>>29147032[X] shake your head. You'll keep it to yourself for now.
>>29147032It said "Izumi a shit."
It's really sad that the only thing Malal didn't see was someone more competent to handle all this shit.
>>29146950I thought they took it in turns?
>>29147128You think she doesn't know green is about midorin? That so naive its kinda cute.
>>29147177We are probably the most competent, given that we are a Homu and this mess started with a Homu.
Here I always thought that Midori would be our ticket to break out of her schemes, the one thing she couldn't possibly predict.
>>29147128>veto>doing anythingYou don't get to make the call dumbshit.
>>29147032This concludes our current voting period. Thank you for voting!
>>29147032[X] yeah it did, didn't have anything to do with you in tue entry though.Unless of course Kaname called you up to try Banana ramen one time
>>29147191>Here I always thought that Midori would be our ticket to break out of her schemes, the one thing she couldn't possibly predict.Is it bad that I kind of want to eat the banana ramen just to spite Malal?>INB4 Malal knew I'd do that and she actually wanted us to eat it all along
>>29147196GREEN IS THE DANGERGREEN IS THE ONE WHO KNOCKS
>>29147222Green is the color of hope.
>>29147210This. We will totally eat the Banana Ramen because fuck you, thats why.
>>29147210Malal had a habit of trying the very worst food combinations apparentlyI think she is speaking from experience in that one and yet she knows we will still go try it and possibly drag NECO and Sayaka along when we do
>>29147210>>29147191Man, I am really starting to get sick of her telling us what to goddamn do all the time.
>>29147210Fucking predestination paradox.We could toss the phone in the air right now, fill it with bulletholes and go and live as a hermit in the desert and we'll STILL wind up doing exactly what we're supposed to be doing.
>>29147210> Malal knewSHADOWRUNS
>>29147254Bitch Malal always knew everything, she's had precognitive visions.
>>29147222Green's in charge here.
>>29147241Malal was indeed quite keen on discovering bad recipes.
>>29147254Shadows won't be the only thing with the runs after we eat that fucking banana ramen just to spite Malal.
Somehow, Miracle Midori is even shorter and cuter than I had imagined. This just makes Murder Mayumi even WORSE. That aside, they kinda look like mother and daughter, don't they? It's really cute.
>>29147032you chuckle fucks she was surprised by Midorin and is telling us to just stay wary of her, not plotting our every action including her.
>>29147241>possiblyNo, not possibly. We're definitely making at least Sayaka eat the banana ramen with us. Maybe NECO if she's around.
>>29147286looks like it'll be lovely, can't wait to see how Mayumi and Chiaki react to each other.
>>29147303How did she know about it if she wrote the diary app before she died
>>29147264>Bitch Malal always knew everythingNo. No she didn't.For whatever reason, she could predict US. Which is why she's using us. We're what she's got.>>29147253Reminds me of that thread with Yuma's girlfriend, and all the chucklefucks trying to prove you can break fate>>29147303No, you don't get it. She SAW events with Midori. Maybe not all of them, but she knew that Midori was a thing that was going to happen.
>>29147286Looks like Hitomi with a slight haircut.
>>29147311BECAUSE SHE CAN SEE THE FURTURE!!!
>>29147319She also knew what was going to happen to her.
>>29147319>She SAW events with MidoriMalal confirmed for voyeur
>>29147286Surprising that she reduced her stand in's breast size, maybe Midori is over conscious of that?>>29147276Malal knew we would eat it just to spite her so we still fail>>29147304There is no "if she is about" that's part of her seal for getting out of this.Bring Kyouko along too and make a full day of it, see if even she can be stopped by some foods too terriblw to inflict upon your own digestive system
>>29147319>No. No she didn't.>For whatever reason, she could predict US. Which is why she's using us. We're what she's got.Bitch everything in this universe is would around Chiaki, knowing her and what she'll go through is knowing everything you need to know about this world if you want to make hings habben.
"Y'know, I've just realised. There hasn't been a single entry from this phone that's not 'THIS IS A PERSON. BE WARY OF HER'""Is this phone just a madlibs shadowrun generator?!"
>>29147242I know right? Plus half of the time it's either vague or telling us not to trust somebody. Don't trust Mami, don't trust Midori, don't trust Kharn, don't trust Wendy. IZUMI is probably gonna turn up, "don't trust the cat."If it tells us to not trust Kyoko I say we break the fucking thing. But if we did that a screen will probably pop up a moment before we do it saying, "Don't break the phone."
>>29147345I second this notion, if there is one person in all of MGNQ that i trust not to want to murder us horribly, its Kyobro.
>>29147336>Surprising that she reduced her stand in's breast size, maybe Midori is over conscious of that?Considering that during the Recap/Q&A she said she was pretty self-conscious about her height, that's probably not the only part of her body image that she's uncomfortable with.
>>29147371The second you said that, Kyoko was confirmed for traitor.Probably right after we kill Oriko
>>29147345>break phone anyway>inside is a bill for the phone that's already been deducted from our pay
>>29147371Everyone will kill us given the right nudgeSome people are just more honest about it.Interestingly Kyouko is the most honest about it if we piss her odd
>>29147342There is that tiny pete entry.
>>29147396Then a girl knocks on the silent room door with a small package. Saying she received orders to deliver it to us at this specific moment. It's a new phone.
>>29147386We fight with Sayaka all the time practically about to tear each other's throats out and Kyoko remains a bro, Oriko ain't got shit in comparison.
>>29147424the first message we receive on it reads: "I told you not to do it you dildo."
So basically if we meet Malal again we're going to set her on fire?I'm cool with that.
>>29147463That's what she expects us to do.
>>29147423And the one telling us to kill the Witch.
>>29147463No. Its not Malals fault.Shes seeing what we would have done anyway.
>>29147469So we need something no-one can expect.We need the Spanish inquisition.
>>29147482Is there a hispanic officio?
>>29147043 >>29147044 >>29147057 >>29147058"What?! At least give me a few juicy details, nya! I'm the one who gave you the password in the first place, you could at least share!"Yes, and you're the one who decides if she gets to walk out of her with her kneecaps intact, you return easily, leaning back on your folding chair. So what's the second password?"Urrr...fine, if you're going to be that way." NECO pouts here, rather cutely at that - reminding you of a certain brown-haired arms dealer that you should probably visit sometime soon, or at least give a call. "Second one's sort of a nasty word, but you always use it, so that's kind of moot, I suppose, nya..."A nasty word? Well, which one is it, then? Because you know plenty."Well, I don't like to use it myself," NECO shakes her head here, and you catch her glancing at your hat again. "But you use it a lot to refer to Sayaka-chan, I guess? Something about her attitude?"...Huh. That's...that's oddly specific. And rather mean of Malal, actually. You had an idea that she had a coarse attitude, what with the whole juvenile delinquent thing, but...You shake your head, and tap out Sayaka's nickname on the dialog.Supressing a grin as you do so.B I T C H...Yeah. Very mature, Murderface.[PASSWORD ACCEPTED.][UNLOCKING ENTRY #3][1/2]
>>29147492[Let's not kid ourselves - you're hoping to find out about Miki Sayaka, right? What a cheeky thing to enter. It's true, though - you're not the only one that talks about Legendary Bitch Blueberry-chan. She's got a pretty nasty reputation all around the world, that way. I'd say there's a certain sort of woman that likes that, though - she attracts redheads from all over, the kinds Miss Sakura doesn't even know about. That's just gossip, though.][You two don't really get along - or haven't in the past - but she's still probably the one person you'll always be able to rely on. That's just how she is. Miki Sayaka is a hero. That's all there is to it. She may be an idiot, but she'll always do what she believes is right, no matter what the cost is. Just try to keep her from paying too much. Sakura Kyouko can't handle everything alone.]It's here, then, that a dialog appears - one notifying you that 10 out of 10 entries had been unlocked, and SET I had been completed. Another dialog opens after a few seconds - this time telling you that SET II was now available for unlocking....Fucking hell."Alright, now you gotta let me see, nya. I know that unlocked something, you were grinning!" NECO points at you accusingly, her brow furrowing. "Come on, at least read out a paragraph or two!"How do you react?
>>29147499[x] "You can surely infer it from the password." Try Izumi if we can try more.
>>29147499[x] "It's all things you most likely already know. It's not that interesting. Whats in the second set?"
>>29147499alright, we can tell her about this entry. Not like she doesn't already have dirt on her already.
>>29147499[x]Tell her the MALAL entryHey, it's not like she DOESN'T know about Malal. This way we give her something she asked for without giving away anything.
>>29147499[x] I'll give you the short version. It's about Sayaka and it is the first time this stupid this has told me I can trust somebody.
>>29147499Did you write half this stiff, cat? Reminds me of your profiles on mgsarereal
>>29147499When did these things go from being short one paragraph affairs to being multi paragraph bios?This change seems suspicious.
>>29147499[x] read that one out to her. Its nothing she doesn't already know.
>>29147499[X] It says I can trust Sayaka.No need to give her more details than that.
>>29147499[X] I've learned the legend of Legendary Bitch Blueberry-chan.
>>29147527Actually it told us we can trust Kharn for a given value of trust
>>29147499[x] It said the same thing about Sayaka that you did earlier, in the same words. That's an interesting coincidence.Referring to her being a hero that we could trust to watch our back.
>>29147499Eh, throw her a bone.[x] Read out the first paragraph.It doesn't have anything sensitive.
>>29147499[X] "Nothing you don't know NECO. Now anything else or is it time to decide what to do with you?Nothing else that wouldn't hurt your chances of walking out of here?"
>>29146801paranoia? Or foresight
>>29147499[X] Read this out loud for her"Miki Sayaka is a hero. That's all there is to it. She may be an idiot, but she'll always do what she believes is right, no matter what the cost is."that's something she already knows anyway.>problem, cat?
>>29147499>[x] Apparently Blueberry tastes like blueberries.
>>29147499[X] It said that there is still a true hero amongst man
>>29147499Lets see. Sayaka is a bitch and one that is known as such whole around the world. And banana ramen is the best thing you could ever hope to taste. That should be enough for you."
what is it about Sayaka that attracts so many red-heads?
>>29147585... Well played.
>>29147559Paranoia.Blueberry doesnt do foresight.
>>29147592Athletic figure, confidence, impulsiveness and fiery temper?
[x] Read out the last two entries to her, and preface it with this >>29147585But omit the part about the banana ramen of course for GREEN's entry.
>>29147585I love it.

> I know that unlocked something, you were grinning!Oh, this is important too."that wasn't what I was grinning about."
>>29147499The current voting period is now closed.Thank you for your participation!
>>29147499[x] "Malal posthumously agrees with Sayaka about saving your skin. Kind of. Or at least that she actually thinks it's right and you don't just have dirt on her. Both passwords worked, incidentally, thank you."
>>29147614Sayaka said she didnt speak to Malal though, assuming we can trust her.
>>29147639Of course not.Malal set Sayaka in motion as Kaneda, not Malal.
>>29147499I'll tell you, but you have to tell me who your filthy assistant is...first.
>>29147628As obnoxious as she can be, she's involved in Malal's gambits, she's doing her part, and she's actually cooperating. We should play ball with her, at least a little, if we want to keep getting results.
>>29147660Godamnit why do all the GOOD write-ins have to come AFTER the voting period.was get fucked that bad it had to be introduced?
>>29147633That banner was way too early, isn't voting period 20 minutes?>>29147499Hunh, where did Malal get these pictures of you and Sayaka?
>>29147675It has been 15 for ages
>>29147610Neko already knows green opens midori's entry. She would've been an idiot if she couldn't figure that out.
>>29147664I agree. That's how you work with reporters in noir or detective flicks. Trade information with information. And then you find them face down in a ditch for knowing too much.
>>29147680I've missed the last half-dozen or so threads and I seem to recall it being a bit longer than 15 minutes. Maybe I'm misremembering, but it was 20 minutes for ages.
>>29147692It's a recent change.
>>29147668It was introduced because of "Take Kyubey into time-stop" actually. I rather like the voting period, personally. Sometimes it has its downsides, but I feel its nice to know at which moment Decu has started working on the next scene.
>>29147680>>29147692>>29147694oh boy here we go.
>>29147499[x] "It says 'Even now, there is hope for Man'"
>>29147696>Take Kyubey into time-stopBoy, I remember raging at everyone who voted for that.
>>29147688>NECO dead in a ditch off screenAt least they won't be able to blame us for that one
>>29147692It was 20 for ages, decu changed it to 15 min around thread 140ish
>>29147592Turns out she could do the tongue thing all along.
>>29147779I really don't get how MGs can get scarred by conventional weapons.
>>29147849Not getting treatment in time? I dunno. Sayaka probably allowed herself to scar as "lesson learned". It seems like the sort of thing she would do.
>>29147849Maybe if they go for long enough without regenerating them, like if they were really busy or low on magic for a while, they end up leaving scars.
>>29147849Witches. Other Magical Girls. Who says they're fighting vs conventional weapons?
>>29147849They're scarred by horror and depression, when their very souls are harmed by the things they have to do to protect the ones they love. It's those scars that stay with them, sometimes they're more evident than other. But each one has their share of scars, make no mistake.
>>29147862We're talking about literal scars, not metaphorical ones.
>>29147862who says emotional scars aren't attractive, and the scars sallaka has could be remnants of the fights that left her with said emotional scars, physical ones too though
>>29147881For meguka, arguably there's not that much difference.
>>29147922Could be, but there is nothing to base that on.
>>29147951WHAT'S WRONG WITH THEIR EEEEYES?!
>>29147958they are robots.
>>29147958They are robots anonRead the title
>>29147951If all the biometals in megaman ZX had contracts, this could have been a thing.
Stopping here for today. Definitely gonna need another layer to clean up the current sketch
>>29148044MAKE A CONTRACT WITH ME AND BECOME A MEGAMAN
>>29147520 >>29147527 >>29147540 >>29147585You glance at NECO before tapping your phone against the heel of your hand. ...Well, for a pain in the ass that you'd been itching to pump a few bullets into, she has been cooperating, so why not. Throwing her a bone wouldn't be remiss right now.You make a show of looking at your screen and paraphrasing the journal entries she'd just helped unlocked. Something about Sayaka being a massive bitch, one that is known as such around the whole world - as well as the bit about banana ramen being the tastiest thing NECO could ever hope to taste. That should be enough for her, right?"Eh? She said that, really?" NECO's brow furrows in puzzlement. "Well, I guess the first one's more like her, but the second...I thought she hated that crap? Then again, she really likes weird stuff, so..." The blonde young woman shakes her head. "Yeah, okay, sure. Why not? She's always been like that, nya." Hnh. Well. You weren't expecting her to fall for that, but she seems satisfied, at least."Well, I don't think you've got any reason to lie to me, Chiaki-nyan. Can I call you Chiaki-nyan?" NECO smiles - not a smug one, but one that at least smacks SOME sincerity. "I mean, of course there's the possibility that you are, but it's not the first time I was lied to. Not the first time this happened, either." She shakes her handcuffed wrist, making the chains jingle. "But I've been able to manage so far, nya."Well, she has, you'll give her that. Until Kyoko and Kumatora caught up with her. Until she made the mistake of spying on your date with Midorin."You're still sore about that?" NECO makes a face, here. "Alright, alright, I can tell, nya. And I know I was kinda, like, really mean earlier? But my point stands, you know. A lot of people are looking at you and wondering when the next time you'll freak out during a joint op and wipe them out. They're looking at you and the Ninth, Chiaki-nyan. Looking really, really hard and close."[1/2]
>>29148129such mami's, truly splendid.
>>29148148"No one wants another repeat of what happened to the Third, much less have it happen to THEM. You can bet they already know about Midori-nyan - I just showed them just how much you're gonna hurt them if they so much as look at her the wrong way."..."So hey, I got a really cool idea." Her face brightens up as she leans forward again, both hands on her knees. "I know you don't trust me, and I'm pretty sure you're itching to shoot my kneecaps off, and all. Or maybe in the face or something." She shakes her head. "But maybe, just maybe, Chiaki-nyan, we can all set that aside and help each other. After all, I've been totally helpful, right? I even told you my tragic backstory, so we're cool now, riiiight? "...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat... I don't deal with amateur journalists. Other.
>>29148181>[X]...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat...Just make sure she knows that if it backfires then her kneecaps are automatically forfeit.
>>29148181[x] Cool? Not by a long-shot. But I promise not to kill you until you're done talking.
>>29148181[x] Well, you're free to suggest something, sure.Don't give away that we realize how anemic and suspicious her tragic backstory was, anons. Please.
>>29148181[x]Spit it out already.
>>29148181[x]...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat...
>>29148181[X]...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat...
>>29148181[x] tell me what you can do for me and I will consider not imprisoning you.For years.In some desolate place.We have a lot of those.I'm so tired
>>29148148[X] "of course they are. Thats what a figurehead is for.">>29148181[X] "Finally. I was wondering when you'd cut to the chase. What do you want, cat?"
>>29148181[ x ]...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat...And if you keep adding cat noises to my name i might just cut your tongue off when i am in a sour mood. And i am usually in a sour mood, especially around annoying cats.
>>29148181Ask her what her endgame is with her Magical Girl tabloid journalism. Because it can't be to gain mainstream credibility. She has to know that she'd be killed the moment it seemed like anyone on the outside might take her seriously, right? So what's her real game?
>>29148181You want to help me? Fine. If you're this good at sneaking about, you'd probably make a fantastic callidus. Contract with the 9th, in the meguca sort of way. You can even have your own soap opera/reality show, Meguca Cribz or whatever.
>>29148181>[x]...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat...
>>29148181"I was ACTUALLY going to suggest something to that effect myself, but let's see what you're offering first."Keep calm, and try not to let NECO think everything she does is doing you a favor.
>>29148247No.We don't contract normal people. Not for ANY reason.
>>29148181"Perhaps we could form a, contract of sorts?"Watch her NOPE then say."Nah I'm just fucking with ya, well sorta I mean a real contract with mutual metaphorical backscratching."Cat's like backscratching right?
>>29148181Oh god, you guys are going to fall for that so hard.
>>29148181>[x] Cool? Not by a long-shot. But I promise not to kill you until you're done talking.Well, this went a bit better than I expected. She's not dead, both her knees are still intact, more journal entries were unlocked, and now we have a potential source of information. Progress!
>>29148258What part of NECO is normal? And if she contracts, we'll at least have some control over what she spies on, and who she spies on. She can keep doing her journalism shit, and it is shit NECO. But we can at least direct the direction of the feces away from us and onto prospective targets.
>>29148181>[X] I don't deal with amateur journalistsGotta play hard to get guys
>>29148181SoWe ARE going to end this interview by keeping her here for a month or so after telling her about IDOL PORN yus?ALSO DO NOT TRUST CAT
>>29148181>...Tell me more. But if this is another one of your tricks, cat...But of course we should be suspicious of anything she tells us.
>>29148303It's very temping but if we do hammer out a nice deal, we should include a least one week of incarceration. Because we're not heartless, but we are petty
>>29148303I say we at least scare her with it.
>>29148268Yes, probably.Its a bit late in the day to start ignoring Malal now, and even if we do start ignoring our strongest ally, it doesnt chanhe the nature of Pinky as our antagonist.So, yeah. We'll listen to Izumi. Trust, maybe not. But we can work with her if need be.
>>29148395Now you're thinking with noir.
>>29148204This is the kind of attitude we should have. We're far from being buddy-buddy with the fucking cat, but if she's got an idea that has merit, we should be willing to entertain it. And then pistol whip her if it's a shitty idea. >>29147032>Then she punched me in the stomach. >tummy punchingMight be useless shadowruns, but that's awful reminiscent of Hitomi - who also had green hair.
>>29148481And betrayed Sallaka.
So, something that I've been wondering: How many inter-Officio wars were started because the respective Incubators disagreed with each other, and how many were started by their Warmasters?Because this is the important part: the war between the 3rd and the 9th was started by Murderface and Kharn, not because of an argument between the Incubators. How many times has that happened, and is that the reason why Warmaster Murderface is generating so much interest?Because a Warmaster that can initiate a war by going crazy during a joint op (since the details of why Murderface killed all those Magical Girls didn't really get out), without the prior authorization of her Incubator, is like a rabid dog, even moreso than even the other crazy Warmasters. As crazy as they were, they didn't initiate a war that resulted in an entire Officio being wiped out (regardless of the exact details).In that context, believing that NECO got past our defenses while the other Officios haven't gotten their own Callidus agents in, is ludicrous.
>>29148481It must be someone else.Midorin cannot possibly betray us without it being worth it.
>>29148296Contacting people is a personal no-no. It'd have to be someone in a pretty dire life or death situation, like Mami's, to think about contacting them.We can't do a thing about Officio recruiting.Besides, one of Necos best advantages is she's not tired to any Officio. Its good to know people without ties to the QBs.
>>29148505I made mention of this before. The Cat gets into places she shouldn't with more alarming regularity than magical girls can. Despite the cat claiming that magical girls can do so better.
>>29148569Two explanations: maybe she just gets noticed much more often, and the magical girls don't, so you never know when you are bing watched.And the second: maybe it's because meguca ping on the magic radar, while a normal person knowing how to work it can easily fly under that.
>>29148536Do you mean contracting?
>>29148569Just because she isn't a magical girl herself doesn't mean she isn't benefiting from magical assistance.If for example Malal predicted the time and location of our date with Midori and told Izumi to be there, she wouldn't need to follow us there undetected.
>>29148585I'm not sure it matters HOW she does it.Though. Shadowruns again. NECO and Ruri both have assistants. Possibly the SAME assistant?
>>29148569>The Cat gets into places she shouldn't with more alarming regularity than magical girls canNo, she gets CAUGHT getting into places she shouldn't, mostly because she Chirps about them.We don't know if Magical Girls are getting through or not, because hey, their survival depends on not getting caught and they don't tell everyone that they got through.That's like saying that some UFO enthusiast that gets within camera range of Groom Lake and tweets about it is some kind of superspy while completely ignoring the spies and informants embedded inside the FBI.
>>29148604Yes. Fucking autocorrect.
>>29148625I don't think Tomoko is competent enough to rub her tummy and pat herself on the head at the same time, much less work for two employers.
>>29148636Now all I can picture is NECO and Tomoko exchanging head pats and belly rubs
>>29148636I dunno whatta tell you man, just spitnalling parallels.What did Ruri say about her love again?
>>29148148>as well as the bit about banana ramen being the tastiest thing NECO could ever hope to taste.COUNTER TROLLERISTS WIN
>>29148677That she's dead I think.
>>29148677Her love was a meguca.
>>29148677Her love was some kind of love and justice hero meguca
>>29148677>>29148694God... god damn it Malal.
>>29148718>>29148719getting ALL them love interests. Surely this should have come up in her predictions? I don't know if the whole spiky biker outfit helped, or was her way of trying to fight it.she might be more similar to Mami than she would like.
>>29148711...didn't she say that her meguca was always trying/focussed on saving the world?
>>29148761That only narrows it down to half the canon meguca everNot everything is Malal
>>29148758who has an evil homura goddess watching over her shoulder, both of them hate our guts.
>>29148780But it fucking has been, so far.
>>29148758>Nanoha is confirmed to be a Golden Weapon wielder>Tried to 'befriend' Pinky once she got her Golden Weapon, then went off to help people or something>Ruri has a high grade sniper rifle from her gf, which one wouldn't need if they had something better>Ruri likened her gf to a superheroWELP
>>29148802Not all the time and not as much as everyone seems to be thinking right now
Change of pace so I drew something with the mouse. Have a Chiaki.
>>29148784No, I'm quite sure that was just two Homuras.
>>29148832Nanoha is confirmed with the first and has wiped out about 50 meguca in one go on a defensive mission at one point, using one of her huge laser blasts. They didn't get a sngle shot in in return. It's in Rin's writefaggery about the 16th.
>>29148192 >>29148205 >>29148213 >>29148228"No, no tricks, Chiaki-nyan." NECO's grin goes wider. "Here's how it goes. I want to work with you, so if you grant me interviews from time to time, an'nya couple of favors here and theeere - I'll be a little more judicious with what goes out about the Ninth, nya."You shake your head, here. Deal's off. Who the hell does she think she's dealing with? If you wanted news censorship about the Ninth, then you can do it right here, right now - either by leaving her to rot here or just shooting her, period. You're not about to become her fucking errand girl just for that--"I know, I know! Jeez, let me finish, Chiaki-nyan!" The blonde young woman snaps. "AS I was saying, I'll be looking the other way, alright? But not all the time, I'm not gonna lie for you, so maybe don't start punching out babies, nya. But the thing is, I'll also tell you who's listening in, who's paying attention, and who's going around askin' questions." It's here that NECO leans back, arms crossed confidently underneath her chest. "I may not be one of your sparklies, Chiaki-nyan, but I've got enough connections of my own that I may as well be, nya!"Hnh. Well. You ignore the little boast. Supposing you say yes. What kind of favors is she talking about, here? Because if she wants someone killed, then she has to take it up with Kyuubey--"No, no! Nothing like that!" Izumi shakes her head furiously. "Just...stuff! Favors! Information, I guess! Promise, it's not gonna be like, Kyuubey's credit card number or something. It's just stuff that you'd probably be offering already if I didn't ask them for you first. Nothing incriminating, just things and information that only Chiaki-nyan will only be able to get. That's all." That's pretty vague, but...well, she is saying that it wouldn't be anything too out of the way, or too important to the Officio. [1/2]
>>29148861stop being so talented aaaaa
>>29148872Maybe all that NECO is trying to do is to find the scoop of a lifetime, and is offering to insulate you and the Ninth from whatever it is you'll help her with. Maybe.Still...you're not so sure. She's super invested in this whole Magical Girl journalism stuff for some reason, despite even you being able to tell that it's never going to pay off.Add to that, you're not even sure she's telling the truth, here. NECO holds out her hand to you, offering to shake it. The biggest cat-like expression on her face, now."Well? Do we have a deal, Chiaki-nyan?" How do you react?Accept. Shake her hand.Refuse.Offer another deal. (Write-in)
>>29148900>[x]Accept. Shake her hand.
>>29148900[X]Accept. Shake her hand.
>>29148900[x] Offer another deal. (Write-in)"Done. On one condition: Anything you ask of me goes through Kyuubey."
>>29148900[X] Accept. But inform her about idol porn, and that she's going to be enjoying our hospitality for a few weeks. Then leave the room, feeling the satisfaction only revenge can bring.
>>29148900[X] one condition, no posting about operations while we are doing them if it isn't already public knowledge. I don't want ops that I am trying to keep quiet turning into shitstorms because you decided to follow me for some "battlefield" reporting
>>29148900[x]refuse[x]Answer me a riddle, cat-CHAN.How would you ambush a person who can predict future.Answer correctly and I will reconsider your role here
>>29148900[X] A combination of these two: >>29148930>>29148933
>>29148933This.Lets end this on a high note.
>>29148900[x] sure, but you are paying for me, blueberry and kyouko to get ramen as a show of good faith. And we are getting it for lunch
>>29148900>[x]Refuse.Too suspicious. Relies too much on the word "maybe"
>>29148900[x] How about no
>>29148900>[x]Offer another deal.All information about the 9th and the 9th's employees and interests are first vetted by the Office of the Warmaster and QB before being published. That includes up-to-the-second coverage via Chirpee and any other media.
>>29148900[x] Sure, if your first job is helping my intel girls find the Prophet trying to brutally murder all the people I care about.If she holds out for better terms, again, offer to introduce her to the assistant's wonderful world of Idol Porn.We're the ones that should be gunning for better terms here, not her. Don't be so quick to agree just because what she suggests sounds reasonable, we technically have the upper hand as long as she's cuffed up down here.
>>29148900[x] Accept with these conditions.>>29148988>>29148930
>>29148933This. No reason bot to accept. If she crosses us again we can just off her, and I really want her to suffer at least a little bit.
>>29148900[ x ]Refuse.i know it is going to be accepted but really i just want to shoot the bitch.
>>29149013If she crosses us, we're never going to get her again.
We could also always have Sayaka in on this part of the arrangement, we're past the delicate stuff. It's still her job to be our idiot check.>>29148900Adding to >>29148930[x] Get Sayaka to vet this deal before accepting.
>>29148900[x] Accept. Shake her hand.
>>29148900[X] >>29148937 + >>29148933 + >>29148930Are we really holding her or is that just to fuck with her head?
>>29148900I'd vote for a combination of these:>>29148949To this if she succeeds.>>29148933But I'd also like to ask[x]So whom am I taking you from?
>>29148987Midoris our info specialist. I trust her to know whats safe to give Neco. Plus Koobs is already keeping an eye on her.
>>29148900Refuse, hairflip, break her knee with a well placed kick and walk out time to bring Chiaki back.
>>29148933Yes, but let's cut the time down a bit. Threaten to leave her here for weeks, but let her out tomorrow evening or so, that way Sayaka won't get pissed or anything and Neco should start to sweat.
I really have to wonder if anon seriously expects her to continue to be cooperative if we lock her up for weeks after we make a deal or what
>>29149069Honestly I don't think she'll hold by her deal at all, but at least if she's locked up for weeks we slow down her "sudden and inevitable betrayal".
>>29148900>[x]Accept. Shake her hand.And none of this "Let's give her more reasons to screw us over" talk either.
>>29149044Whats the point of agreeing to this if we hold her?
>>29149069I think we should hold it over her head at least.
>>29148872[X] >>29149058No need to keep her here for weeks.
>>29148900This deal is too risky, too forgiving for her and the profit is questionable>[x]refuse
>>29149087I think that you need to tone the paranoia the fuck down a notchIf we turn around and act like a cunt then we will be betrayed. So far though? She hasn't given any reason to doubt she will hold her bargain since she is getting what she wants
>>29148988This.Lets at least get her to do stuff for us before letting her out.
>>29148900[X] Accept. "If you fuck me on this, I have two words for you: idol porn"
>>29148900>>29149039 - here>[x] Accept. Shake her hand.[x] I'd like to add that I'm againist holding her longer.
>>29148900>Offer another deal. (Write-in)Shake her hand with Yuu if we're still wearing the bangles
>>29148988[x] THAT ONE
>>29148913>>29148922>>29148930>>29148933>>29148937>>29148952>>29148953>>29148962>>29148986>>29148988>>29148998>>29149012>>29149013>>29149020>>29149030>>29149039>>29149044>>29149047>>29149048>>29149058Accepting this deal is a bad idea. These are unspecified favors. We don't know who her contacts are or who she works for. She's sneaky enough to fool us and some of our rank leaders, she could be planning this just to get closer to us to get that scoop she's been looking for. Before we take anything, we need to do a full background check, find out what she's into that she doesn't have on her chirpee. Also, we need to raid this filthy assistants computer and confiscate any...inappropriate material. Only then once we know what we're getting into should we agree. Besides, let NECO sweat down here a little before agreeing, it might make her change the terms.
>>29148900[x]Accept,This is what we should have done from the beginning. In fact, we probably could have gotten an even sweeter deal if we had just focused on taking advantage of her talents instead of having a pissy grudge for some reason.
>>29148900I change my mind>[X]Refuse.
>>29149157Fuck your Shadowruns. If she's good enough to be that much of a threat, she's good enough to get what she wants out of us on or off our leash.
>>29149157>Also, we need to raid this filthy assistants computer and confiscate any...inappropriate material.IIRC From NECO's twitter, the "idol porn" consists of badly-done photoshops. We can (probably) ignore that.
>>29149157At this point, the weight of votes is too far in Accept's favor, we can only argue over how to make Accept the best option it can be.
>>29149157Well, since the 'hold her indefinitely' option won, we'll have plenty of time to talk things over and research before we actually let her out.
>>29149157Also, everytime we've been agreeable or nice instead of old chiaki it's gotten us nothing but trouble and more shit to deal with. I'm looking at you Midorin
>>29149157It's not like we can't refuse them on an individual basis if it's something we can't/don't want to do.
>>29149157You're rightBut unfortunately too many people are voting to agree to this without any precautions.Taking bets as to exactly when we found out it's backfired - I'd estimate 2 ingame weeks at best.
>>29149157Except we want NECO onside for exactly those reasons.Lets keep our assosciation a little more loosey-goosey.QBS contract people. If we dont define terms now, we can ask for a favor later.Lets not go full Watch-wearing dildo
Alright, pausing thread for now! Sorry about the early stopping point, everyone, but I really need to get some sleep. We'll have a longer thread tomorrow night!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great! No writeups again tonight, so maybe just a few questions before I fall asleep!
>>29149264Decu, can you answer >>29148505How many wars between Officios occurred because of Incubator politics, versus those started by their Warmasters?
>>29149264Thanks for running Decu! Any writeups this time?
>>29149264By agreeing to NECO's deal, how fucked are we on a scale from 1 to MMxMM.
>>29149157We also have unspecified favors we can ask. And if she renegs, we can shoot her. Because that's not in the terms either.
>>29149264Decu! What would have happened if we'd have chosen to go into the Deli Heal Agency when we were in the withc barrier in Siberia?
>>29148481>Magical Girl Hitomi
>>29149290>No writeups tonight>>29149264I know sallaka and CAT have been friends since high school or something, but have they ever been more than friends? Was there something there that still has a little hold on blueberry, or is she 100% for kyoko now?
>>29149318>Deli Heal AgencyOh! Or the gunstore! Or Charles' Bar!
>>29149264How long has GREEN been the #5 password?Did it replace something else?
>>29149318I think he mentioned this before, it was a death flag for kyoko if I recall correctly.
>>29149264Do you like hurting people, Decu?
>>29149264Decu, It feels like there are more grief seeds available to feed Magical Girls in the MGNQ universe than in PMMM, with lower focus on actually fighting witches. Various anons have speculated unreliably about why this could be, but I'd like to know from you, is there something going on with this world's Grief Seed supply that we should be paranoid about?
>>29149298We're ABOUT "Sent to Siberia and retired as Warmaster" levels I reckon.
>>29149341>implying decu had 10 entries to begin with>implying he didn't plan it like that from the beginning>implying HaHaHa!

>>29149357Feeding prisoners to Familiars from an easily managed Witch.
>>29149357The answer given before was that there's an officio devoted to hunting witches, and unlike in PMMM canon, Grief Seeds are recycled.
>>29149357It's been explained before, obviously you've seen the inflated numbers of megucas present in the officios where as in the series the number of MG's in a city was far lower, barely a handful, now there are dozens if not hundreds given the way Chiaki tends to tear through them. As for the grief seeds they are [redacted]
>>29149289There have been a few inter-Officio conflicts started by Incubator politics themselves. I'll say there would be more caused by the Warmasters themselves, but it's not unheard of for two Officios to get into a scrap because their Incubators got testy with each other. >>29149290No, sorry! :(>>29149298Hahaha, I would say...Cooking With Tiny Pete and Misaka!>>29149318A brief encounter with Murder Mayumi!
>>29149406>A brief encounter with Murder Mayumi!AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWHYDIDNT'TEVERYONEVOTEFORTHAAAAT
>>29149406>Cooking With Tiny Pete and Misaka!I want to see this.
>>29149406>Hahaha, I would say...Cooking With Tiny Pete and Misaka!yep, we're screwed.
>>29149406>Hahaha, I would say...Cooking With Tiny Pete and Misaka!This is a bad thing how?
>>29149406>Cooking with Tiny Pete and MisakaThat doesn't sound bad at all.
>>29149406>I'll say there would be more caused by the Warmasters themselves, but it's not unheard of for two Officios to get into a scrap because their Incubators got testy with each other.So wait. Have some of the crazier Warmasters started full-scale wars with other Officios, or is the battle between the 3rd and the 9th considered something that was universally considered out of hand? And for what reasons?
>>29149406>Hahaha, I would say...Cooking With Tiny Pete and Misaka!Misaka: "Comrade Tiny Pete, Big sis Mur- Chiaki is coming to visit, we will surprise her with a cake!"TP: "..."Misaka: "Do not be silly, I will make sure this one does not have a sword in it!"
>>29149406Decu, I have to know, what would you do for a Klondike bar.What would Homu do for a Klondike bar!If NECO is about, what would NECO do for a Klondike Byan!Who would Mami do for a Klondike bar!
>>29149406>Hahaha, I would say...Cooking With Tiny Pete and Misaka!I can only see this going horribly wrong in an adorable way.I'm having trouble picturing Neco in a similar way.
You know, I recall something about Mami's entry.>More than that, she has people that would kill for her, maybe even die for her for nothing more than a smile and a pat on the head. Not just rank and file, either - Warmasters have fallen in love with Tomoe Mami. Special forces. Cannibals and murderers, heroes and psychopaths. If Mami died, the entire magical world would grieve, and then it would hunt.We could probably pull in a lot of help in finding out the Prophet, if we pass some suggestions along to other officios.
>>29149330Just friends. Maybe best friends, even. But Sallaka's 100% for redheads.>>29149336Gunstore - Tomoe Mami at her motherly best.>>29149341Hahaha!>>29149350I don't want no trouble!>>29149357Yes.
>>29149496Homu would homuhomu for a Klondike bar.
>>29149495>pulling a sword from a cakeYou just went full such a fool.NEVER go full such a fool.
>>29149513>Tomoe Mami at her motherly best.I feel like we missed something good here.>is there something about the world's Grief Seed supply we should be worried about>Yes.Is it about Faust's Grief Seed? Or is it about how the regular Seeds are harvested?
>>29149513>Yesdammit decuWill we ever get to see scenes we missed?
>>29149496She would do...everything. It was a really dark time in her life, and she doesn't like to talk about it.
>>29149513>YesI didn't ask for these shadowruns.

>>29149563You might not have, but >>29149357 certainly did.
>>29149593Back then this here was posted all the time
>>29149593So, for shall we try IZUMI for the next password? What else should we try?
>>29149479Some of the crazier Warmasters have attempted to, and there has been squad-against-squad action from time to time (the Eighth is very guilty of this). But they've never escalated to the point that the 3rd and the 9th had gone into. What's more, the 3rd and the 9th had a generally good working relationship with each other, with two of the most business-minded of Incubators, so it came to a surprise, too. It's also when the rumors of Kyuubey being insane really started to circulate.>>29149496Homu would commit deicide for a Klondike bar.Mami would have someone bring it for her.NECO would probably do something lewd for it.>>29149541It's both! And it's a really big spoiler.>>29149543I'll have them explored once MGNQ finally ends. I've been keeping track of all the scenes and flags that have been avoided and turned down.
>>29149647Something about Kyouko? POCKY maybe
>>29149547Looking sharp there!
MERRY AFTER CHRISTMAS, DECU
>>29149666>I'll have them explored once MGNQ finally ends. I've been keeping track of all the scenes and flags that have been avoided and turned down.Based Decu!
>>29149666>I'll have them explored once MGNQ finally ends>endspls no
>>29149684Thanks. Was trying to imitate how Decu and Dan do their work a bit, but ended up using my preferred brush anyways, so the effect is lost a bit.
>>29149688>Both outcomes involve Kyoko on top of Sayaka down on the floor.>bueno.gif
>>29149688Kyoko so fat
>>29149718I like it a lot more than your usual style.
>>29149713It will happen one dayThen once the shield is fixed Homu will jump to another time line because she failed to save Madoka very early on in this world and it all starts again
>>29149666>It's both! And it's a really big spoiler.So Faust's Grief Seed is causing a spike in Witch populations, making current increases in Magical Girl populations unsustainable?Or Faust is making Witches stronger?Or killing Witches empowers Faust somehow?>Some of the crazier Warmasters have attempted toThat's 'attempted', not 'succeeded'. So that's why the Officio's are focused on Chiaki; no one feels safe with the crazy Incubator now paired with the bat-shit insane Warmaster who could be your best friend one minute then suddenly turn and kill you and your entire Officio the next minute. So, do you have any opinions on this >>29148632
>>29149666What would Pinky do for the same Klondike bar as Homu?
>>29149547That cold gaze, that short hair, that bespectacled beauty. I think it's time for some tender love.
>>29149740H-how cruel anon!I like both really.
>>29149666When will that crossover thing happen?
>>29149750...and Decu starts a new quest for it right?
>>29149688Why such cuteness? My heart cannot take it>>29149369It is such a shithole grief seeds condense from pure suffering in the air?>>29149718It is a lot different than your normal style, I would behave believed someone else drew it really.It is very nice though
>>29149666>NECO would probably do something lewd for it.How many sexual favors has NECO given out for info? I can't help but remember those condoms...
>>29149796>It is such a shithole grief seeds condense from pure suffering in the air?Try the reverse if that, then you're on the money.
>>29149796MERRY CHRISTMAS FOR YOU TOO!
>>29149780Naturally, the ride never ends
>>29149740It's flattering that you would say, but my usual style is, well.. usual because it's familiar and easy... I like the way the neat lines and the way they tapper off, basically.
>>29149832I mainly like the bolder lines, really. That and the eyes.
>>29149810Pure suffering in the air is caused by grief seeds forming making the place a shithole?
>>29149814spoiler that stuff anon.
>>29149666What are you going to do after MGNQ ends?
>>29149832The sharper look is great though, it gives it a new...perspective. When I look at your other stuff and compare it to this new thing, this looks more evolved, however I know that's in part because I've seen much of your art for this quest (which is all great btw) and have gotten used to that so something new of course looks like an improvement since it came out so well.
>>29149876Or gib sauce
>>29149757Regarding NECO, that's a very good assumption, but the thing is she's managed to get out and continue! Don't underestimate her.Then again, she's just a normal human girl!>>29149758She would rip it out of your chest!>>29149767Ahh, I'll have to ask /a/nonymousmagica...>>29149807She is very lewd. Maybe a lot!
>>29149876Did your heart melt? It's a common condition in fa/tg/uys when presented with cute girls.
>>29149883I have no idea, really. Maybe start another quest that's lighter in nature? But that's probably after I take care of some projects of my own, hahaha!But I'll finish MGNQ first, even if I only have one player left and if it takes 500 threads!
>>29149900What would have happened if she decided to go for a private interview with Kharn? Would she have forsaken journalism?
>>29149939thanks for answering all these questions Decu, but you should really get some sleep so we can have a thread bright and early next time
>>29149948>She is very lewdI don't think so Tim
>>29149980True but Kharn ruins girls sexually, and that is in regards to magical girlsNormal ones? I think would be even worse
>>29150006Puellae are easy. Lick the gem and it's over. Guess what Kharn is good at. Normal girls have hardware that actually matters.
>>29149860>>29149890Umm... that's really flattering. Thank you. I will experiment with this a bit more, but make no promises about making this a regular thing...
>>29149980Replace QB with kharn, that's basically kharn
>>29149892http://exhentai.org/g/658091/3cf80da76f/It's a bit short, but not lewd!
>>29149939You're the best, Decu.
>>29149939I have heard this from quite a few QM's over the years and I am hopeful. I'm going to keep on archiving until the very end.
>>29150019She never mentioned licking the soul gemAnd she demonstrated both an abnormally long tongue and the ability to control it to quite a degree back in siberia
>>29150027I have become physically ill from the pure unadulterated sugar rush of cuteness and pure happiness in that comic. I didn't think that actually happened, but it has, I have been sickened by too much cuteness. I feel terrible, for being sickened by it and by merely being sickened in the first place by it.
>>29150027>>29150104so adorable, good thing I'm already dead!
>>29149939I belive in you Decu-pyon.
We should still interrogate NECO on if she's working for the First Officio. Or maybe she's one of their unofficial assets but still has some of their protection.
>>29150480>Hey gurl>u workan for the firsties>dont like I can tell
I know that I'm late and missed.I don't know if it will have any impact or whatsoever but anyway:>>29148181>"No one wants another repeat of what happened to the Third, much less have it happen to THEM. You can bet they already know about Midori-nyan - I just showed them just how much you're gonna hurt them if they so much as look at her the wrong way."".... Do you take me for a fucking IDIOT?! Do you think I do not know that? Do you think I do not realize that if some amateur journalist without MAGICAL POWERS can spy on, that TRAINED professionals with special POWERS can do the same and much better?!That's why Kyoko and [whatshername] were there. NOT because I want them around during my PRIVATE DATE!The thing I said to you earlier? It was simply to see if you realize that to."Then we get our face closer to hers."What matter is that you RUINED. MY. FUCKING. DATE!That was the one day. ONE FUCKING DAY. That I put aside for myself in MONTHS. no. AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.It was supposed to be one night when I felt like a normal fucking human being. No missions, no assassins, no crazy goddesses. Just me and my date.Do you know that I put aside my dinner with Mami just to go on that date? Not sure if we actually should say thisHuh? DO YOU!? Do you realize how important that was for me?And then you had to come butt in and ruin everything with your stupid shit! Do you know that Midori passed out just after that due to stress that was in no small amount thanks to you!? Not entirely true but she doesn't have to know""THAT is why I'm pissed off!THAT is why I'm holding back each and every muscle back from shooting you in the face!"-----Maybe not that long but you get the gist.We could've saved our face from that retarded bit of dialogue. Tell her we know that others spy too (Didn't we make that observation already during Ruri's mission?)
>>29150598>AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.Doesn't hold much weight when everyone in the world knows that we have explosive and unpredictable amnesia. And if people have been watching the 9th know that we had another episode a month ago.
>>29150598Oh forgot about this. We could also add the part about Siberia. That we didn't go to the fucking Siberia for vacation. That it was probably some of the worst time we ever had in life, even before amnesia. Because NEKO seems to think we went there for pleasure and not business.Of course we might not want to divulge that info.
>>29150598>Didn't we make that observation already during Ruri's mission?Not that I can remember; that was more about the things we were worried about were publicly available on the Internet.Most times that I can remember us letting our shadowruns concerning the secrecy of Magical Girls get the better of us (not shadowruns about prepping for missions), we've usually been humiliated by people telling us that what we've been worrying about is common knowledge.
>>29150621Yeah. The shorter the rant is the better. I'm sure that if it came to this, it could've been more to the point.It is just a draft. I'm not good at writing, someone could do this much better than me and with much bigger impact. In fact, I think Deculture should stop taking player's dialogue options as is and instead rephrase them to fit the narrative better. I really don't like it when he simply links to the post and gives us the reaction. It really breaks the flow.>>29150650While maybe not in the actual Deculture's plot posts, I'm sure some anons made that observation.It's not that far-fetched really. After all the defenses and screening we set up, some normie journalists gets through all that means that others can spy on us just the same. I mean, you'd have to be really dense to not understand that.Even, lets say, if we have 100% full-proof scanner to detect magical girls that doesn't stop our enemies from hiring normal professionals.
>>29150598I think the problem is that these plans (even the hypothetical ones) keep relying on remorse or guilt for what is, in her mind, apparently a pretty minor infraction. All I can see is something like..."...So...you're myad, then?"
>>29150845Nah, it wasn't to guilt her.It was just to show her in how much deep shit she really is.She thinks that we're mad because of the info leak. She has a very good counter to that, which we really cannot refute.She has absolutely no counter, no argument or excuse for fucking up our date that would save her from us.I mean. It is real possibility that we will never, ever have such time again with Midori. We could die. Midori could die.Everybody in this business knows that are very unlikely to live past 20y. Everybody knows that they could die tomorrow.It was really fucking important to us.
>>29150911"I still have to punish you for wrecking my date."Simple and succinct.
>>29150911She didn't fuck up the date, though. Midori did.
>>29150911"So you're myad. Nya."You severely overestimate the amount of fucks she gives.
>>29150946If not for Neco, then we wouldn't need to go to the cabin that early. We wouldn't have made accidental innuedos. We wouldn't put Midori in such stressful situation that she would pass out. Alcohol was just a part, not the whole reason, of her sudden black-out.In an event that she would have passed out anyway. We wouldn't have been that pissed off. In fact, we might have thought it was endearing and cute. We wouldn't have gone to sleep thinking how mad we are at Neko.The entire date got soured because of Neko's meddling. And this is how we are going to remember it. Our first date with Midori which got ruined by that fucking cat.
>>29151005.... point.The entire rant hangs on the fact that the players stop being fucking doormats for one second.If she still mocks us, then we can at very least bash her fucking face on the wall hard enough to break her nose and few teeth.But we all know that wont really happen. Sometimes, we should stop being so meta and detached from the character and act irrational and spontaneous. I know that we are trying to stop the Murderface experience but being extreme in any direction is bad. We cannot be nice ALL the time nor can we murderboner all the time. Not saying to kill her or even handicap her for life but show her that we are willing to do that if she pushes us AND THEN ACTUALLY going through the threat.Because we are threatening, not bluffing.Why is it that a Yakuza, who compared to Neko was a damn gentleman and paragon of politeness, didn't get the time of the day but when a some DMNPC shows up who is also a hot girl we need to be so careful.Okay, I know. Sayaka, etc, etc. But still, we shouldn't let Neko walk over us so easily.
>>29151117Honestly, I reckon that leaving her in there for a few days (which we use to work out how we're going to actually use her) while letting her think that she's actually going to be in there for a month or two as her assistant ruins everything will be much more effective than any sort of physical violence we can produce.
...I'm still laughing at how pussywhipped you guys are when it came to totally handling NECO.I mean NECO herself told you guys at the end of last thread that (s)he's fine with you guys going rough on her on that "interrogation".But y'know what's even more hilarious?That fact that a gag character got so under all of your skin that the mere mention of the character in-game sends all of you to a blood frenzy.
>>29151149Pretty much this.
Shoot the bitch and be done with it. Also shoot Mami sometime too, cause fuck that manipulative bitch.
>>29151209>shoot MamiBut that's heresy onii-chan
>>29151149That's assuming that it actually bothers her. She did say that she has been imprisoned before.How long has she had her assistant anyway? How do we know if this isn't some kind of a friendly thing they do from time to time?How do we know that the assistant is not sending coded messages to parties we are not aware of?Neko is a good actor and manipulator. She might act bothered but we never know if she actually is.
>>29151149Maybe pull her by the ears or something first. Not even Sallaka can hold that against us.
>>29151209Why, lets shoot Midori while we're at it.Heck, why don't we shoot the entire world?
>>29151149Leaving her in a room for two days will not give the satisfaction bashing her face on the wall and then leaving her there will give.
>>29151285Sure, go for it. I am sure Pinky will help us with that if we ask.
>>29151305Can we just give her a black eye instead? It's a bit more satisfying.
>>29151319We'll need a really big gun to shoot the entire world though.
>>29151404That's why we plan to ask her help on constructing a super-mega-death-ray on moon.
>>29151266>That's assuming that it actually bothers her. She did say that she has been imprisoned before.Its not the imprisonment. Its not being able to stop the idol porn.
>>29151433Lets colony drop her grief seed.
I feel Chiaki became too much of a goodie-two-shoes compared to the start of the story. She is all bark no bite lately. I know that is what we want, and i wanted it too, but not to this extend. Shooting kneecaps was literally her being merciful, and now look at where we are...
>>29151433I hope we build it in Deculture's backyard.>>29151438Let me elaborate.She has been imprisoned before meaning that the same opportunity has arisen for the filthy assistant before (assuming she's didn't hire her recently). Which means that Neko already lived through the same shit before. And since the filthy assistant is still assistant and not dead in a ditch somewhere means that Neko wasn't bothered by this or it is in fact a contingency to notify her friends, allies and employers. Remember that she said that she has a lot of connections? How do you know she doesn't have somebody in our Officio which we don't know of?Of course this is just a lot of speculation and assumptions. We might never know how bothered Neko actually. As I said, she can act very good.
>>29151582Has she? She might be bluffing. Just something to think about.
>>29151616if you are trying to refute that post you quoted, you should know you just supported it instead.
>>29151568>Shooting kneecaps was literally her being mercifulOh God, this.With all the NPC talk about our knee-capping tendencies I forgot that it is Chiaki just being nice. Normally she just kills you with no question. Remember how we almost shot Sayaka, how she almost pissed her pants because our intent on killing her at the moment was so pure that she knew it wouldn't take us much to pull the trigger.And now some normie journalist is openly mocking us.Something we could have done for good/bad cop routine:After we sit down in front of her with our big gun in our lap. At some point we go like this:"[...] You know, Neco, I promised Sayaka here that I will not blow your knees off.But you know what? I'm feeling really generous right now and I will let you in on a small secret. Just between you and me."Lean in and say loud enough for Sayaka to hear:"I do not keep my promises."Kinda cheesy and seems like from an action movie script. But it is absolutely true. We don't always keep promises. If Neko is as good at reading people as I think she is, she will sense the truth.
>>29151720Compromise : Kick her in the shins and punch her in the face.
>>29151720>"I do not keep my promises."Thats retarted. She keeps her promises.
>>29151765fuck>"I do not ALWAYS keep my promises"Which is true. We broke a pretty big promise just recently. Chiaki may think it was or was not real but she DID remember the promise. We even got a suggestion prompt to avoid breaking it and we did it anyway.I'm just saying that if we did this, it would be true and we wouldn't need to try to bluff or whatever.
>>29151825That is not needed. We just promised not to shoot her. We can just beat her to our heart's content during interrogation and Sayaka would have no right to give us any shit about that.
>>29151720>I forgot that it is Chiaki just being niceIt's actually Chiaki being Grizzled Professional.Just like it's professional courtesy to not have prisoners that are fellow professionals raped, accept their surrenders, and not kill them out of hand if they are disarmed and unable and unwilling to fight back.
>>29151863We promised not to shoot her.We did not promise to not beat the shit out of her with a golf club.And we're pretty fucking handy with a golf club.
>>29151978I mean "Chiaki blowing knees out instead of straight up murdering" is her being nice. Compared to what we know about the pre-amnesia Chiaki at least.Blowing out knees is no way being professional.
>>29152038>>29151978it was not being nice, it was her being 'merciful'.
>>29152064>>29152038It was returning the professional courtesy of not being raped.
>>29151863>But you reassure her that you won't do any murdering once she's left. Or any kneecapping. You just want need to ask NECO something that you need to hear first before anyone else.So as long as we avoid the legs, we should be good. But we probably shouldn't hurt her while we're transformed or whatever. That might actually kill her.
>>29152094How about we break her elbows?
