You decide to drop by your Golden Weapon vault.Second time of the day you're visiting this place. You're going a bit more slowly this time, though, with all the aches and pains from your little encounter with Sayaka flaring up with every step. ...Jesus, you're practically limping the entire way. Pathetic.You manage to make it there without making an embarrassment of yourself, however. A sigh leaving your lips as the doors slam shut behind you, sealing you in with the most dangerous weapons you've ever laid your hands on.You pull out the chainaxes from your inventory, and place them back on their proper rack. Despite everything, Risa wasn't really that bad, you decide. Just a bit wild, but nothing you can't handle--
>>29576190As soon as you let go of them, it's here that the aftereffects of going an entire round with the most batshit insane Eversor this side of Kharn suddenly slam back into you full force - and you very nearly pass out from it, finding yourself knocked down to your hands and knees. Gritting your teeth, you grab something from your inventory that you've never had to grab for a long time - a bottle of Interfectum 600.You twist the cap off, nearly tearing it off its rails, before upending the bottle into your mouth. Three makes it down your throat with the first shake, and you force yourself not to take any more. You shove the thing back into your inventory, breathing hard, waiting for the familiar effects to start pouring in.Fuck. Is this what happens when you use the chainaxes? Add to that - is your Equerry just that much of a fucking monster?You shake your head as your breathing stabilizes, the pleasant numbing effect of the painkillers slowly making the pain recede. Not nearly eliminating it, just reducing it into a dull throbbing sensation.Jesus. You'll have to remember that. Not only does using the chainaxes make you hyper as fuck, it numbs pain to tolerable levels - and that effect stops once you let go of them.Fucking bullshit, these Golden Weapons.Anyway. What do you do now?Try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weapon.Try and communicate with the XI Golden Weapon.Try and see what the fuck is up with the XX Golden Weapon.

>>29576198[X]Try and see what the fuck is up with the XX Golden Weapon.This IS what we came down here for, right? It wasn't my choice in the last thread, but we might as well follow through now that we're here.
>>29576198[x]Text Sayaka "Trying out Murasame; be ready in case I go batshit." Try and see what the fuck is up with the XX Golden Weapon.
>>29576198[x] See whats yo with VIII[x]Text Sayaka "lol, the chainaxes are scared of you"
>>29576198[X] Communicate with the XI WeaponWe haven't tried to talk to ourself in a while.
>>29576216VIII is Deagle (Justice)XX is Muramasa (Judgement)by elimination XI is our sleeping friend Yuu.>>29576241yeah it is... we're just, y'know. putting it off a bit now that we're here and realised just how totally fucked we actually are.
>>29576198get Kirika AND the deagle, but practice with Kirika.Deagle can wait for....I dunno, whoever's in there was pretty accomodating even before the operation.

MGNQ FUCK YEAH
[x]Try and see what the fuck is up with the XX Golden Weapon.>>29576268>summoning_your_persona.gif
>>29576198Also, on the subject of Sayaka being a monster: Risa wasn't the first one to notice something off about her. I was rereading the Concert arc and came across this line:"You're not too sure if it's the trick of the light or what, or if it's just from the multiple flashbulbs going off?But for a moment there, Sayaka's eyes looked completely black for a moment. Just like Pinky's. Just like Kirika's."http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26977768/ (post 26982007, towards the bottom)There may be other instances, but I can't remember them (and incidentally, since they probably all happened before Siberia, neither can we).
Fun fact: According to wikipedia, in the Tarot, sometimes strength and justice switch numbers.
[x]Have a Talk with your Deagle[x]If it doesnt work take MuramasaBest time of day!
>>29576198[X]Try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weaponwe put this off long enough.
>>29576198Humm... I'm torn. I want to find out what is up with XX and try to master it as soon as impossible but I am still curious about Homsar muderface we heard back in Siberia [x]Try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weapon.
>>29576198Ugh, talking to Kirika without being in good shape is a bit risky...still, as long as we let someone know I guess it'll work out.[x]Try and see what the fuck is up with the XX Golden Weapon. Text Sayaka and inform her first.
>>29576198>[x]Try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weapon.
[x] See if Deagle is some kind of hard nosed 1940s ace detective!
>>29576333>talking to Kirika without being in good shape is a bit riskyit might actually be the best time. If we lose it and flip out we should be a lot easier to stop
>>29576190[X]Try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weapon.
>>29576198[x]Try and see what the fuck is up with the XX Golden Weapon.
>>29576198[x] Try and communicate with the Deagle.I forgot which number it is, but since it's Chiaki's, we should get to know it better.
>>29576365we were getting word salads in a familiar voice, off the top of my head
>>29576333I think we have sufficient leverage on Kirika that we SHOULD be able to keep her under control. If she doesn't play nice with us, she spends the rest of what passes for her life neglected in a dark hole deep below the earth, and she won't be able to do anything to prevent us from murdering the shit out of Oriko. Assuming we don't screw up that negotiation as badly as we did with NECO.So, what I guess what I'm saying is, we're fucked.
>>29576198Voting period is over now, but I can't do banners because my phone messes up the transparency. Anyhow, thanks for voting! My office hours are starting now, so I'll be leaving and dropping by whenever possible. Have fun!
>>29576348how about fuck the hell NO.
>>29576348If the sword's anything like the chainaxes, the difference might be negligible under its influence.
>>29576198[x]Try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weapon.I want to know what will come out of that. Homucifer? Ribbonhomu? Another Muderfaec?
>>29576414... Why are they grabbing the wimpy househusband?
[x]Juggle deagle and katanah until they start getting used to each other so we can have magical golden threesomes
>>29576427To make it a fun family outing, of course
>>29576302....that explains...so much.
Deculture, is it true that once you reach your first training goal, you'll be able to type at the staccato rhythm with which you punch the speed bag?

>>29576435Thanks for putting this up, anyan~ I got here a few minutes late.
>>29576470goodo, I'll leave the rest to the designated drivers, then
>>29576450Why is that bait?
>>29576491i mean they use HIM as bait
>>29576293well, it's possible that Kyoko brought her back from near-witching like Kharn and Chiaki, only with significantly less surgery.>>29576411If we were going to do this, the painkillers were probably a bad idea then. I for one was voting for this from the start, but it's looking worse and worse the more Chiaki recovers.>>29576427'cus he's a good shot.>>29576432>deagle+katanasome sort of modern pirate?
>>29576462There would be love, adorableness and bloody violence. Heh, imagine Kharn bringing baby to a playground and socializing with the other moms.
>>29576499That makes a lot more sense. What would they name the kid? I I think there'd be a family conflict if kharn tried to name her murderface the second
You know guys when we try to wake the Katana up whenever we do this we should have her just yell into the things ears."Bitch. Wake up."
>>29576293Man, Sayaka will be surprised when she learns the truth about herself.Hmmmm....I wonder if Bebe Nagisa is still around/alive?
>>29576510>mommy, how come all the other mommies turn red when they see you?>W-well, they're all good friends of mine, and they're just remembering some things from the past.
>>29576537Katanas have ears?
>>29576536I tend to think it'd be a lot more suitable than anything Souji The Shutin comes up with.It'll be something russian, I'm betting
>>29576574Mikasa or Misaki, for added tongue-twisting.
>>29576553Just grab the thing and pulse to it like the others. In the most loud and obnoxious way she can do it. Maybe mention prophet girl just in case.
>>29576589Why do a pair of Russian siblings have Japanese names anyway? Were their parents weeaboos?
>>29576728They're Japanese, but Souji learned Russian for Ekaterina's sake, and I suspect Misaka simply picked it up from proximity.
>>29576216 >>29576227 >>29576245 >>29576256You decide to try and communicate with the VIII Golden Weapon. Namely, your Desert Eagle.You take it out of its foam inset, the blocky firearm immediately growing warm in your hands despite the fact that it's been sitting in something resembling a walk-in freezer for God knows how long. You find yourself smiling at this, your fingers easily finding the all-too-familiar grip you've used to wield and shoot the oversized handcannon. Its weight settling comfortably, naturally in your hands. ...It almost feels like being reunited with a lost love.After a few moments of just simply staring down at the golden firearm in your hands, you release the magazine, letting it fall down onto your other hand, before shoving it back in again and racking the slide. Turning the gun this way and that, examining it from every angle.It's still the same thing. Still radiating a quiet menace, despite its safety still being on.You close your eyes, here, and start to concentrate. You don't exactly get the process - you regret not grilling Yuu about it - but you remember how she coached you into doing so, that one time.As soon as you feel the cold of the Golden Vault suddenly vanish, you open your eyes, and find yourself in a dark place. One with four mirrors on it, standing in front of you. Each one as tall as the ones Haruka used during the seeing.You step forward, narrowing your eyes at this - and at the same moment, three reflections step forward as well. But instead of being similar to you in every way - like reflections are supposed to be - they're different. Each one drastically different to you.One of them, the farthest to the left, looks young, inexperienced, nervous. Her hair tied in two long, heavy braided pigtails. She looks just about ready to burst into tears.[1/2]
>>29576797Misaka probably picked it up from dealing with weapons dealers before Souji did.
>>29576828>[X]Other."So... am I finally gonna get a straight answer out of someone, or are you guys going to be as helpful as everyone else?"
>>29576828I think you missed a post in there Decu.[x]Can anyone explain to me what the fuck is going on?

>>29576828[x]OtherIt's a pleasure to meet you all.and[x]Can anyone explain to me what the fuck is going on?
>>29576807The mirror next to her shows you what you probably would've looked like if you went the entire watch-wearing dildo routine. Impeccable posture, long straight hair down to your ass, and a cold, emotionless countenance bereft of any glasses whatsoever. You immediately hate this reflection.The third is...a ruined version of you. You're not sure if it's supposed to be you in the first place, what with all the fucking armor, and the metal shit all over its arms and legs that strongly remind you of an infamous Russian killing machine. Her hairstyle looks the same as yours, and her eyes the same violet with the pinprick of red as the pupils, and she has the same shield...but that's where the similarities end. For one thing, she's taller than you, and her face is scarred as shit. ...But good scars, though. Scars even the most hardcore Eversor would be proud of.The fourth mirror is blank. Strangely so. It's not reflecting anything, not even when you wave to it."...Sloppy." The second reflection murmurs, her voice deadpan. Your voice, but not ruined by time, or by too much alcohol and cigarettes. "Fix your posture. Your slouching is unsightly.""U-um, hello," The first tries, but after flinching from the second's comments. "M-Matsuda-san, right? I'm very pleased to meet you.""..." The third merely glowers at you, frowning, not saying anything.Well. Seems there's a freakshow in your Desert Eagle. Fantastic.How do you react?Who the hell are you people?Can anyone explain to me what the fuck is going on?Why's the fourth mirror blank?Other.
>>29576828DECU YOU MISSED A POST I THINK

>>29576869>I mean we know some of it but might as well hear it from them.That's not how detective work works. Everyone's got an opinion on what's going on. The truth is usually lost somewhere inbetween.Even if we think we know what's going on, hearing these guys opinions on it can serve to cast light on something else we thought we knew.

>>29577191Creepy Midori is best Midori.
>>29577202AI YO Midorin? I'm not saying I'm putting this on the list, but I'm putting it on the list.
The truth split my skull open, a glaring blue light washing the lies away. All of my past was the final retort of a gun barrel, an echoing scream as it tore through her soul gem. I was in a golden deagle. Funny as Hell, it was the most horrible thing I could think of.
>>29577202>>29577215>Ai yoI know that AI means love but what is ai yoit reminds me of niggaspeak
>>29577324Basically "It's love!" Sums up Rebellion Homura quite nicely, I think.

>>29577544>>29577564He is upset because people are posting gifs from the trailer.
>>29577544>>29577560Dont cry, go watch Rebellion. Done. I was Cinemas what.. half a a year ago?
>>29577599Waiting for something that isn't a crappy camrip, though I haven't really checked lately.
>>29577560>>29577564I was at least posting with spoilers!
>>29577613They're still camrips and still crappy. I don't blame people for waiting. I know I should have.
>>29577599>I was Cinemas what.. half a a year ago?In Amerika.
>>29577633Ah, spent money to see it during the weekend it had limited release. At an Alamo Drafthouse no less.
Does anyone know when the Blu-Ray releases in Japan? That's when piracy is going to be worth the effort.>>29577599It was in (an extremely small number of) American theaters from October through December.
>>29576864 >>29576884 >>29576901 >>29576913Right. They're...they're all you, somehow?What the fuck. What the fuck is going on? Can somebody here just explain to you, clearly and concisely, for once in your fucking life, just what is going on?Despite being your reflections, all three of the images react differently to your outburst. The first flinches, looking more and more close to tears with each passing moment. The second frowns here, crossing her arms under her chest, her - or your - purple eyes glaring daggers at you. The third simply smirks, her ragged cut of a mouth curling upwards ever so slightly in an unsightly sneer."Language, please." The second says after what seems like an eternity. "I realize that you're confused, but that is no reason to act in such an undignified manner." "P-please don't shout," The first speaks, now, her voice tremulous. "We're...we're you! I know it's confusing, but we're you! Just...I guess..." She looks at the shield on her left arm, the metal disc pristine and unscarred - in contrast to the beaten, scarred one clamped onto your right. "...Not quite...""What she means to say, in her own stunted, stilting way, is that we are reflections of you. Inside this...vessel of souls." The second cuts in again, flipping her hair imperiously, hatefully. "I suppose I should at least be pleased that you didn't end up like this freak." She jerks her head towards the third reflection - netting her a wet leopard growl from in return. "And I suppose one of us has to assist you should you need it. Sometimes." Another flip of her hair. "When we feel like it."Another growl, before the third reflection turns to you and gives you the smallest fraction of a nod. Huh. Well. That's...something you should remember, then. Maybe you should write it down somewhere.[1/2]
>>29577715You rummage inside your inventory, looking for a scrap of paper, and possibly a pen - when your hand clamps on something that feels like a small, slim hardbound book. You pull it out, blinking, and it's here that you see that you've pulled out the journal that Wendy left you in your dream, earlier.It even has a small pen.That's handy, you remark to yourself, before flipping to the very first blank page. A chair materializes behind you - black ebony in make, and looking very uncomfortable - and you sit down on it. Writing down what you've learned so far. About Risa, and about the reflections. And a bit about not challenging Sayaka to another fight again."Updated my journal," you murmur to yourself as you finish, before looking up again at the three reflections."At least this one seems to be learning, too." The second reflection remarks. The first smiles at this, clearly pleased. The third is indifferent, but she's looking at your journal with what looks like envy....Well, before everything else. Can you at least get their names? Because you'll be fucked if you keep referring to which reflection they are. And yes, you know they're you, but calling them your own name is going to get old real fast."Akemi Homura," The first says."Akemi Homura," The second replies.". . ." The third adds.Right. That's...yeah. That helps.You add that to your journal, too. But not before popping two more painkillers, crunching them down noisily as you write.Another question, then. Why's the fourth mirror blank?"...Hnn. That's strange." The second Homura replies, turning to glance at the fourth. "We're all supposed to be in attendance, but...I suppose that one is either dead, or unable to join the communion."The communion? So this is what this is?[2/3]
>>29577730"More or less. Or at least, an incomplete one." The reflection smirks. "If it was complete, you'd be seeing a lot more mirrors than just four. But this will suffice for you." She sniffs, contemptuously.A moment of silence, as the four of you just stare at each other."That ponytail." The second Homura says suddenly. "Are you trying to emulate Sakura Kyoko's style, or something? That looks completely idiotic. Take it off.""I...I think it's cool," The first Homura cuts in hesitantly. "L-like a samurai...The third merely nods again, but this time with a look of approval.Yeah. This isn't going very well. But at least they haven't started driving you insane just yet.How do you react?
>>29577730"The One With The Ribbon?"
>>29577730>"Updated my journal," you murmur to yourself as you finish, before looking up again at the three reflections.My sides>>29577738"Since you are all me, can you help restore my memory? I want to know what happened to me before I became girl A."
>>29577738>How do you react?[x] Painkillers[x] "I should probably be less surprised that you know Kyoko."
>>29577738"Can you tell me about my past? Do you know what's going on with pinky?"
>>29577730>Updated my journalDecu normally I think your references are either meh or pretty bad. But this time I have to say you have good taste this time.

>>29577738[x]Give them nicknames! THAT one is braids, THAT one is Dildoes, and that metal one is... let's call her murderface because she looks more like it than you do.[x]Are you guys able to help out with Pinky?

>>29577738So, if all of you are me, then am I Akemi Homura...have I forgotten being the two of you, and are you supposed to be what I become (pointing toward scar face)? Do you know what happened before I lost my memories? Do you know about the me in black with the ribbon?
>>29577738"I guess I should explain whats been going on outside of here?"
>>29577780>Inb4 Bitchy Homu does the standard "Hmph!" -hairflick- "You don't even know her name. Typical."
>>29577738[X] Ask about their memories and trying to get ours back.[X] Ask first and third, "is second always this big a bitch?"
>>29577738[X] So can you tell me about my past? The things I forgot?
>>29577738>>29577812Voting this. Also:[x]Side with the first"The hair stays."
>>29577906[x] point at each of the fragments in turn and ask them how they fucked up, in their own words.
>>29577738Can we move on to something more important than hair styles? You can comment about it when we're on the job.
>>29577906Yeah and show #2 you can hair flip with the best of them!
>>29577738[x]Turn back into Magical Girl Shorthair ChiakiShort hair best hair because it shows that we`te not Akemi Homura but Chiaki Matsuda.Also.We totally should slip the Deagle Midori sometime as a Reward.>our faces when Midori then has a foursome with all the Homus inside the Deagle.
>>29577943Isn't that kind of difficult with a pony tail?
>>29577963Only said by someone who's never had a ponytail. A ponytail is just as hairflickable as normal hair, if it's a long one.
>>29577961Becomes obsessed with the Deagle.It becomes the Precious
>>29577963Meh I think we've done it a few times since getting the new style so we should manage.
>>29577997Actually, I wonder what happens if someone else holds the Deagle?It's just mirrors, right?So would they commune with their own alternate selves? Or would they just be stuck in here with a bunch of empty mirrors?
>>29578011No it's not just mirrors; Homura called it a vessel of souls so whoever used it would meet the Homuras. Before going insane with corruption of course.
>>29577715>"And I suppose one of us has to assist you should you need it. Sometimes." Another flip of her hair. "When we feel like it."I wonder how.
>>29577963We could always:>Sure, let me just remove it>Grab it + hairband, bring to side of face>Ohwait>Slide hairband up, Hairflip>No.
>>29577807Hat-chan, how's the height chart coming?
>>29578365I worked on Sayaka some more early this week and really liked how the sketch is progressing. Might need another layer of sketching before she's ready for linear though. The file is a bit too much for my phone to handle, but you can see it on my twitter or someone else could upload it?
>>29578394this the one?
>>29578434That's the one.Thank you kindly.
>>29578434Man, seeing this reminds me we really need to visit Misaka sometime soon.Pic unrelated(nor mine)
>>29578434Mirai's fingers weird me out
>>29578471we always need more Misaka time.captchasaid byllit
>>29578434>Sayaka and Kyoko >Chiaki and Midori >Same height difference We should have a double date
>>29578575I can't see that ending at all well.
>>29578586What would make you ever think that way?
>>29577763 >>29577780 >>29577812 >>29577832Right. This isn't going to work. You'll have to assign nicknames to them."...Nicknames." The second Homura states, flatly. "Really."Yes, really, you snap. For fuck's sake, you can't keep referring to them via mirror position or what. That's just too annoying.You point at each of them in turn. The first one, with the braids, is called Braids. The second, the bitchiest so far, is Dildoes. The one with all the awesome armor and cut-up face is...Murderface, because honestly, she looks more like it than you do.Again, you see the varying reactions of each of your reflections. Braids seems to be hiding a protest behind a nervous smile, Dildoes is frowning at you as hard as she can, and Murderface is...well, she's actually smiling, now. Granted, it's a shark's smile, one full of black, sharp teeth - but a smile nonetheless."Naturally, I refuse such an ugly, distasteful nickname." Dildoes says after a moment, her voice the frostiest it's ever been. "Call me by my proper name, at least--"Dildoes. That's her proper name now, you say as you write it in your journal and underline it a couple of times. Now and forever, she will be referred to as such."But--"Yeah, no. You're not interested. Now, can anyone tell you why you've forgotten so much shit? About yourself, about your past? Can anyone restore your memory?Braids speaks up, here. "W-we should be able to. It's...it's a communion, right? That means we could--"A growl, from Murderface, and you see her shake her head. She taps at the intact shield on her left arm, before pointing at your scarred one."O-oh..." Braids' hopeful expression falls. "I...I suppose we can't, really...but we can at least tell her, right?"[1/2]
>>29578632"Remember what happened to the last one." Dildoes replies, reaching up with one hand to flip her hair again. You're starting to get annoyed at that. "Remember what she did? Put her own gun to her mouth and emptied her brains all over the place. Do you want that to happen, too?"Braids shrinks back in her mirror, going pale. "N-no! I don't...I don't want that!""I suppose a verbal recounting would be in order. Although a heavily censored one, to make sure this one doesn't go crazy." Dildoes shrugs, but the little smirk on her lips tells you that she took pleasure in making Braids react like that. "We can answer her question at the very least. About her memory."It's here that she turns to you. "Your real name is Akemi Homura. You are a Magical Girl."And?"...And you are our last hope in setting things right," Braid adds in, after she'd regained her composure. "Because...because we failed. We all failed."Failed? Failed in what?"This is going to take a while." Dildoes turns to Murderface. "For heaven's sake, this would be easier if you didn't screw up enough to be that way. At the very least you'd be able to tell her, instead of leaving it to me and...her."Murderface merely growls at this, making Dildoes sigh."Very well, where do I start? I suppose the beginning should be good..."And it's then that you learn about yourself. Your...past selves, more specifically.How you were, in fact, a normal girl once. With a normal life. You had some heart problems then, requiring you to spend some time in a hospital. You transferred to Mitakihara, and met someone who would change your life forever.Kaname Madoka.She would rescue you, after your mindless stumbling into a Witch Barrier. An angel in a pink dress, swooping down to offer you salvation. You become fast friends. Best friends, in fact. Maybe something even more.[2/3]
>>29578434What happened to Wendy and whats-her-name?
>>29578645But then fate strikes as Walpurgisnacht. She defeats it, but is killed herself. You didn't even get to say goodbye - all you find is her lifeless corpse, torn in half. The only mercy granted to her was that she died with a smile on her face, and not the expression of fear and despair that you would find familiar in your own reflection all too soon.A contract made in haste. Giving you the power to rewind time, as much as you wished. Allowing you to try, again and again, to rescue her, to stop her from the cruel fate that she'd been cursed with.But you kept failing. Every single time ended in complete and utter failure, no matter what you tried, no matter how hard you fought. "...We broke at the ten thousand, nine hundred and forty-eighth attempt." Dildoes remarks here, her smirk gone, replaced by her businesslike emotionlessness. "But we kept trying, even then. Until one of us was broken enough that she did the impossible. The unthinkable."And what's that?"..." All three reflections fall silent at this, bowing their heads."It...it's probably better if we don't talk about it." Braids murmurs. "Let's...let's just say it was really bad.""As for why you lost your memories..." Dildoes starts. "...that's easy enough to explain, along with that." She gestures towards your scarred Shield. "It's to remove you from the chain of failures. To make sure SHE doesn't use you as her pawn."She? Who's she?All three glance at each other. "The most broken one of us all," Dildoes replies finally. "The one who turned our ambition into ashes in our mouths. Who twisted our wish and broke every single promise we've made to everyone. Even to the blue-haired harridan."[3/4]
>>29578667Wendy and Haruka are on invisible layers. They're already done, I wanted to show them, but their placement is going to vary in the finished product so they're back to being invisible until I can place them right
>>29578668"It's all her fault," Braids suddenly spits in an angry outburst. "It's all HER FAULT! I-i-if only she didn't become so SELFISH--""It's OUR fault." Dildoes shakes her head. "Any one of us would've done the same. It would've only been a matter of time."How do you react?Tell me who SHE is.You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?Can't I just rewind time to before all this shit happened, then?
>>29578680[x]I... If you don't want to say who it is, that's fine.
>>29578680[X]Tell me who SHE is.
>>29578680>[x]Tell me who SHE is.Do it fagets.
>>29578680>[x]You mentioned something about Kyoko. This isn't the first time I've met her, or everyone else, is it?>[x]Tell me who SHE is.
>>29578680[x] Planet sized grief seed and impending armageddonI think these guys might be out of the loop.
>>29578680[X]Tell me who SHE is.[X]You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?We have seen another version of us already, and she hates us.
>>2957866810948 loops. Each loop is one month. Chiaki has 912 years of repressed memories. Fun times. >>29578680[X] Ask who she is. [X] Ask about Kyouko and the rest
>>29578680[x]You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?Didn't we say we were going to do it right this time?
>>29578680[X]Tell me who SHE is. Are you talking about Faust?
>>29578680>[X]Tell me who SHE is."She's another one of...us?"then>[X]You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?"I guess that's what the diary app means by all the different worlds."No need to bother with:>Can't I just rewind time to before all this shit happened, then?It's pretty obvious we can't do that because our shield is busted, but maybe they have some insight as to why or how.
>>29578680>Tell me who SHE is.Also:"You mentioned the last one blew her brains out. Was that person also Akemi Homura? If she is dead then how am I still alive?"
>>29578680>ask who she is>did I know Kyoko before.
>>29578680We know who SHE is, we saw her with Oriko and Red Marar[X] Can't I just rewind time to before all this shit happened, then?
>>29578680[X] Tell me who SHE is.
>>29578715You'd THINK that would be plenty of time to multiclass into melee and public speaking, but nooooooo...
>>29578680>[x]Tell me who SHE is.>[x]You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?In all honesty, we could probably ask about all three options in a single setting.
>>29578715I can't art for shit, but could I request a 900 year old Homura sitting in a rocking chair on a skull floor from someone, please?
>>29578680[x]So, this broken one; she's still around? What's her aim, what are her resources, and how do I keep from inadvertently doing what she wants? And how does this relate to Faust and Pinky?
>>29578729This one's pretty obvious.Our soulgem's on the back of hour hand. Even MAMI only died to decapitation because hers was a goddamn hair clip.
>>29578746Several of our fragments probably did.
>>29578680You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?
>>29578680[x] ...wait, does she dress up like total slut? Yeah, I've seen her before.
>>29578764Dildoes doesn't seem to be much good at talking to people, either.
>>29578746Homura probably did multi-class into melee and some of that leaked through into the two times we tossed Sayaka around with a judo throw. Homura never took public speaking because she was too jacked up on PTSD. Maybe if we could just unlock Homura's fighting skills without unlocking the rest of the memories which would result in leverage from HER...
>>29578781Don't you call best girl a slut!We know who Devil Homu is; Malal told us and we saw her with that other bitch during the Amane thing
>>29578795She'd be fine at it.She's just having troubles with us because we instinctively react badly to watch wearing dildoes, especially when they're wearing our face.
>>29578816stop posting spoilers without using spoiler things dood
>>29578796>Maybe if we could just unlock Homura's fighting skillsour fighting skills are fine.The problem is they're dependant on the shield, which is currently crippled.
>>29578715Each loop is actually most likely more then a month actually. Pretty sure she starts a little before the month begins which adds too it.
>>29578680>[x]Tell me who SHE is.>[x]You mentioned something about Kyoko. Is this the first time I've met her? Or everyone?Also just mention below to emphasize how fucked things are and highlight our need to know whats what.>>29578701
>>29578839Why go with 'fine' when you can have 'good' or 'excellent?'
>>29578840But she also doesn't always make it to Walpurgisnacht before rewinding. Like during the "All we can do is die" iteration or during Puella Magi Oriko Magica.
>>29578760>Even MAMI only died to decapitation because hers was a goddamn hair clip.Whats funny is canon wise if she didn't have it there everyone would be screwed. Because losing your head or getting any fatal wound without knowing about being a lich leads to instant witch out.
>>29578840I remember reading an interview with Gen in which he said that each loop was "roughly a month". For a quick estimation, just rounding to a month works fineHave an important meeting now. Have fun with the rest of the thread!
>>29578885What I want to know is, how much do the other three know about our combined past.If they know everything, how come we can't know without going nuts?
>>29578715[x]THIS!>912 years of looping
>>29578959Shhh, I'm saving that for when things actually go tits-up!
>>29578939>>912 years of loopingpossibly not.We may not be the "original". I can't discount the shield being on the wrong side as meaning we might be a replacement.
>>29578937Because we are still sane. Sort of.
>>29578976and they're not?I mean, I'm not discounting the possibility that being dead grants one a wonderfully uncluttered perspective.[X] "So... this is why I'm not who I think I am?"
>>29578973We aren't a replacementWe are a reflectionThe reason we are so broken while Homu was so together is the same reason
>>29578760>>29578885Rebellion Story implied that Mumi is the second most powerful Meguca after Karma-Infused Meduca. Its clear that Mumi only died in the original series because she underestimated Charlotte and Charlotte got her by surprise.
>>29579015Rebellion is a fanwack
>>29578885It had been my impression that that wasn't necessarily a certainty, it was just really likely.
>>29579015Charlotte was designed specifically to be anti-Mami monster. Mami relies on tying her enemies with ribbons, but Charlotte can shed skin, it's impossible to hold her down.
>>29579015>Rebellion Story implied that Mumi is the second most powerful Meguca after Karma-Infused Meduca.How do you even quantify this in a setting where timestop is a thing? Haxx fucks with power ratings.
>>29579015it could also be because she was pretty worn down, fighting the good fight all alone.The reason why Rebellion Mami is so together is because she has her friends.
>>29579015>Mumi is the second most powerful MegucaDepends. If she knows about time-hax then she is the strongest one around. If she doesn't then homu is stronger.Though I meant that more as in if she didn't have her hairpin there she would witch out and eat Madoka.
>>29579014Homura was one wrong word from Madoka away from a complete nervous breakdown. See: her shooting up Kyubey and bawling at Madoka. She was o la together on the surface. Chiaki might be a lot of things but she's far more stable than a stalker with 900 years of obsession
>>29579015>Its clear that Mumi only died in the original series because she was totally an incoherent wreck on the inside who only wanted a friend and because of her emotional securities she was actually pretty bad. Had she got over that issue she would have been the strongest but it took a mind going warping the world with its pure despair into a fluffy happy world and cheating witches that actually managed to help get Mami into a comfortable kickass state.also stop not using spoilers goddamn some people haven't seen it
>>29578668>Even to the blue-haired harridan.Sayaka, or someone outside of the usual frame of reference?
>>29579052I think Homura is considered to be the most powerful... if the others don't know about her Timestop.Which is why she gets wrecked in Rebellion.>>29579085PROBABLY Sayaka.
>>29579014I mean, physically.This is quite possibly not Homura's original body.
>>29579066>______ was one wrong word from ____ away from a complete nervous breakdown. >See: >Her shooting Kyoko in the soulgem/her witching out in a train station/her deciding to suicide herself for a girl she'd met only a few days ago/her shooting up Kyubey and crying on the floor>being meguka is suffering
>>29579094She honestly did pretty good for being a squishy fighter you could visibly tell during the fight that the mumi had to strain a bit during some parts. Problem is she can't keep it up like mumi can.
>>29579029>Normal Anime Fanservice: Girls in swimsuits, Pantyshots, Girls half nude, Beach Episodes>PMMM-Fanservice: They are actually all alive and going to school together and expieriencing friendship, Megucas being happy.
Just a side note but someone else will have to archive the thread tonight, I have to attend a retirement dinner.Have fun and good luck.
>>29579153Is the retirement.. Your own?*sound of gunshot*"This is what it means to be noir."
>>29579111After the Siberia and Midori arcs, this may not even be Chiaki Matsuda's original body. I think we were kind of stitched back together from the bits and bobs left over from that fight in the barrier.
>>29579052In the movie both Sayaka and Mumi could keep/prevent Homu from using Timestop effectively.
>>29579193Though knowing about it and attacking/sneak attacking.
>>29579193Being aware of the limitations of her timestop makes it much easier to fight Homura so long as you can take her unaware.
>>29579184Well, we lost an arm to Kirika and that didn't slow us down much.
>almost 1000 years of soul-crushing failureI'm sad now...
>>29579081>also stop not using spoilers goddamn some people haven't seen itOk. Using Spoilers.
>>29579232It was only 912 years, don't be such a downer.
>>29579247well, the good news is that if we don't stop fucking this up real soon, we're probably not gonna make the big 1k
>>29579232Well, it's a good thing it's all down to Chiaki, even with nearly 1000 years of pain on her shoulders, she won't buckle.
>>29579232I feel you, bro. I could need a Magical Midohug now, too.
>>29579244Now you are just getting ahead of yourself.
I think it's time to re-evaluate some old options.
>>29578689 >>29578694 >>29578700Dildoes narrows her eyes at you, before shaking her head. "What's there to tell? She answers to the same name as all of us do." Another fucking hairflip, this one made with such flamboyance that you can't help but grit your teeth at it. "But we call her the Transcendent One, if you really need a name."The Transcendent One? That's...unnecessarily flashy, yeah?"It's what she became. Or what we became." The raven-haired girl lets out a sigh. You write that down in your journal as well, circling it a couple of times....Wait. Did this Transcendent One dress like a slut? Feathers, skimpy gown, that kind of slutty?It's here that all three reflections glance at each other, then at you. "That...well, I wouldn't use the same words, but yes, that fits her." It's here that Dildoes' eyes go wide. "Has she manifested to you in any way or form? In your dreams, maybe? Because that should be impossible--"No. You just saw her, during a seeing. You've also heard of her, but only through someone else's memories.Dildoes and Braids visibly relax here, while Murderface remains impassive. "Good. That's good. She shouldn't be able to." The former gestures towards your Shield. "Otherwise, everything would've been for naught."...Right. Well.What about Kyoko? They mentioned something about her. This isn't the first time you've met her, is it?"No, it's not." Dildoes shakes her head. "Although, I would definitely recommend not--""K-Kyoko-chan's good! She's a good friend! Please stay with her! Don't make her angry!" Braids suddenly cuts in, adamant. "Please! Whatever you do--""--Quiet." Dildoes snaps, icily. "You will have your turn. Let me talk to her first.""B-but--" Braids glares at the other reflection, before bowing her head a few moments later. Effectively cowed.[1/2]
>>29579355>>29579244>Implying this isnt how MGNQ is going to end.
>>29579355Let's just cut off the puns at the top before everything goes terrible, shall we?
>>29579406He can't help it, he's a chip off the old block.
>>29579395"...Right. Now, before I was so rudely interrupted..." Dildoes shakes her head. "I would recommend not bothering with Sakura Kyoko, or Sayaka Miki, or even Tomoe Mami." It's here that she smirks. "They will die, one way or another, and there's nothing you can do to stop that. Just do what you're supposed to do, and finish it.""N-no! That's cruel! They've always been there for us!" Braids tries again, unable to hold herself back any longer. "Everyone tried to help us in the end!""And we betrayed them. All of them." Dildoes counters calmly. "It's no use trying. We don't need to concern ourselves with riffraff."Murderface merely shakes her head at this, raking a clawed hand through her ragged, matted hair....Wait. Wait. You're still trying to get all of this into your journal - for you to hopefully understand later - but couldn't you just rewind time, then? Back before all this started?Silence, as both Dildoes and Braids stop in mid-argument, turning towards you with something approaching irritation."Well, that's a novel solution, isn't it?" Dildoes flips her hair - AGAIN - before crossing her arms under her chest. "It's not like we tried it ten thousand, nine hundred and forty-eight times already.""I-it's not going to work! It's never going to work!" Braids is in tears now, clearly frustrated. "We made the wrong wish! It wasn't going to solve ANYTHING! What we need to do is to fix things, not make them worse!""Besides, you're no longer part of the chain, remember?" Dildoes points towards your Shield. "Whoever did that had the foresight to sever you from the rest of us and prevent another loop. This is clearly the last one." She smiles, hard and brittle. "One last chance to do what's right."How do you react?What do I have to do, then? To set this right.Tell them about Pinky.Ask them how they failed.Other.
>>29579437[x]Tell them about Pinky.[x]What do I have to do, then? To set this right.

Follow up with:[X]Ask them about OrikoIf we've run into everyone before, maybe they have some insight on how we can stop someone who can predict the future.

>>29579466>hugWhat kind of slut are you?
>>29579479oh boy. I really think they don't know about Pinky.Also, how the fuck are we supposed to change the outcome when regret is what changes the nature of a man and we can't remember what we're supposed to be regretting?
>>29579502I think the best we can do is brofist, what with her being a mirror
>>29579510>when regret is what changes the nature of a manExperience is the more refined answer.

>>29579510>regret changes the nature of a manThe nameless one would like to have a word with you. Particularly in the high INT endings.

Guys, shouldn't we find out what setting things right entails before we agree to it?Especially as all Homura's have a history of making mistakes, and these Homura's are no different?
>>29579586She's got a tongue.She just doesn't want to use it.>>29579502>just grind your naked body up and down the mirror, or something
>>29579604It's not rape when Murderface wants it.
Someone needs to update the deculture scale picture once this is over. We're off the scale already.
>>29579638Yeah, we really screwed up by not grabbing the fourth us.
>>29579638The armored fragment is based off of Insane BRS, just so you know.
>>29579660The deculture scale was obsolete the moment Homucifer appeared.
>>29579669Didn't we go for all or nothing on the fragment grabbing?It's been a while, I forget.
>>29579638How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?
>>29579707last fragment was homucifer.
>>29579669Who would have the fourth been?Ribbonhomu?
>>29579669And so "Get Fucked" continues to fuck us over with its consequences.
>>29579723Not really, last fragment is Ribbonhomu.
>>29579669I'm under the impression that the fourth mirror was reserved for the current incarnation. Which would have happened if Chiaki succumbed to corruption or died.>>29579707We went all in, choosing to confront the RibbonHomu rather than just trying with Moemura and insane Murderface.
If they don't know about Pinky, where do they think they are?
>>29579683Deculture commissioned some other artist to do the armor fragment already and she didn't look like Insane BRS at all other than the sword and hair.
>>29579732Yo I didn't wanna say anything but..please don't bring that up again.
>>29579723If we'd gone to the deli heal agency we'd have gotten lewd Homu.
>>29579638>>29579669>tfw the fourth Homu was the prerequisite for the good ending.
>>29579751REGRET CAN CHANGE THE NATURE OF A MANFucking told
>>29579437[x]Tell them about PinkyWhat twisted Kaname Madoka.into the thing she is now?
>>29579764b-b-b-but what if a shitstorm happens again
>>29579758>implying there ever was a good ending
>>29579749She was based off of her as I've said, it's Insane BRS with slightly bulkier Kharn / BGS-style arms and legs.
>>29579437every thread until you like her
>>29579758And Decu wants to drag the realization out for 500 threads.
>>29579755>lewd Homu.No anon, lewd mami
>>29579816I HATE HER
Uh? We killed the fourth fragment? I thought we had captured it or tamed it and it just wasn't showing up due being a bitch.
>>29579814it's a fucking ouroborus without end....or it should have been, at least.
>>29579731Golden Wings homu.
>>29579816What if I already love it?
>>29579839Bashed her head in with her own shield after she killed Midori.
>>29579898Technically, magical girl heads should grow back, right?
>>29579839Read the thread again; she's dead. We smashed our shield into her head until there was only a bloody pulp left. It was obvious that we killed her.
>>29579898>Bashed her head in with her own shield after she killed Midori.I told you guys that Midori was onyl going to bring misfortune to us. Stop thinking with waifus, damnit.
>>29579816But I already like NECO.
>>29579884I STILL HATE HER
>>29579910She's a soul fragment. She may not really count as magical girl anymore since she, like a living human, is her own soul.
>>29579929>Midori>Not being the only reason we're even still here at all
>>29579910I'm gonna go with witch barriers are strange places indeed.
>>29579832HE HATES IT
>>29579839But in Chiaki's barrier, there were four fragments:MoemuraMurderface (AKA Chiaki Matsuda)Warped Fragment (armored)and RibbonHomu.We know that Moemura and Warped Fragment were killed during the fight with RibbonHomu, but were still subsumed to recreate a coherent psyche. RibbonHomu was also killed, but we don't know what happened to her. Since there's another fragment in the Deagle that isn't armored or Moemura, we can presume that RibbonHomu is none other than the Dildoes we see in the mirror. Murderface/Matsuda is not present since she was chosen as the vessel that would bring the whole person together again.
>>29579933That's...that's a lot of hate, nya.I'm so proud.
>>29579922We as in the Chiaki fragment, right?
>>29579955At the cost of the BEST END. Chiaki would have come back after that anyway. better all four pieces than three pieces and a stupid vegetable.Sigh. But it's too late now. All I can do is to keep hating her and hope she dies. And hope a good ending is still viable for Homura.
>>29579991NECO needs a love interest, just so that there can be someone who plays with her inevitable cat ears.
Can't save 'em all Braids.But we'll try....Only, y'know, apparently we're supposed to apocalypse the universe? I'm not sure how many people are gonna be left to appreciate not dying.
>>29579929We were actually controlling Midori then.
>>29579975You know how Moemura and Warped fragment willingly gave part of themselves to Midori after they died (and Dildoes did something similar)? And how pinky used those fragments for something? We never got a fragment from Ribbons.
>>29580009Doesn't she have her assistant for that?
>>29579929but if we never got the Green it would have been Misaka that got to tell the obviously competent and dangerous MG to get fucked.In other news I hate dildoes-Homu already.Can't blame her for being that jaded after she's seen Murderface and Chiaki fuck everything up though.
>>29579832>>29579884>>29579933HE HATES HER!
>>29580033It's a lazy assistant. I wouldn't trust a lazy assistant (af a Spider Jerusalem expy to boot) to handle anything delicate and soft.
>>29580030Ribbons is still out and about, though.Is she distinct from Homulucifer?>>29580033Two words.Banana Ramen
>>29579975Yeah I thought this wouldn't need to be explained but good on you for posting it.
>>29580042Lets just lewd up her mirror, maybe she'll work the stick out.
>>29580030But Malal mentioned that the RibbonHomu fragment would never rejoin the collective willingly. We knew that we'd either have to do some slick talking or beat the hell out of her to make her submit. Kinda like in another game that's been referenced many times in this thread that also has incarnations and journals and regret.
>>29579991>Not using this picture
>>29580120That's a good point.I am shamed.

>>29579460 >>29579462 >>29579479 >>29579485It's here that you look up from your journal. They do know about Pinky, right?"Pinky?" Dildoes' brow furrows, while Braids manages to stop sobbing enough to wipe her eyes, blow her nose, and blink at you through her tears. "I don't...we don't follow. Pinky, as in your little finger?"No. Well, sort of. But it's a name you made up for the black-eyed girl who haunts you whenever you stop time with your shield. You call her pinky because of her costume, and her hair, and--"No. No, no, no." Dildoes is the first to react, her eyes going wide, all color draining from her face. "No, no. That...that's not true. That can't be true." She looks wildly at the other two reflections, before sinking down to her knees, both hands grasping at the sides of her face. "This...this means we've lost. She's turned. We can't save her. We're too late. We were too slow to initiate the last sequence, now that she's turned--""NO!" Braids shouts, enough to stun Dildoes from her sudden trance. "W-we still have hope! We still have her! We can't give up now!""Don't you get it?!" Dildoes snarls, getting back up shakily to her feet. "We are FIVE minutes to midnight! Madoka can't be saved any more - she knows what we did, and she'll be spending the rest of eternity making sure we suffer for it! The only way we can put things right now...the only thing we can do is...!"A sob tears itself from Dildoes' throat as she turns away, her icy countenance all but completely shattered, now.What?

What's the only thing you can do, now?+ KILL. + A jagged, rusty shiv of a pulse stabs itself into your mind, making you wince visibly at its migraine-sting. + KILL. MADOKA. +[1/2]
>>29580662"It's the one last thing we can do to save her," Dildoes mutters bitterly through her own tears. "Her manifesting to you like that means...means we have to kill her to save her." She shakes her head. "Too much sin. Too much hate. Too much damage we've done to her soul and sanity already."She turns to you. "Get the Golden Weapons. All of them. Use them to kill her, in the realm where gods and mortals meet." She taps at her Shield. "Only then you'll be able to save her."You narrow your eyes at this. That doesn't sound much like saving someone. More like putting down a rabid dog."Do you think we WANT it to be this way?" Dildoes spits at you. "This is the only way to save her. We're not sacrificing this last timeline for our fool's errand." She shakes her head. "We...we need to let her rest. It's done. It's over. She's been corrupted." She manages a tremulous laugh, one laced thickly with defeat. "All...all those loops. Gone. For nothing."You glance at the other reflections.

>>29580690"I have to say guys, premature insanity is looking pretty good right now."
>>29580690"The transcendent one is ,like, super-me right? Won't killing her kill me too or some crap?"
>>29580690>What did you... I... we... do to pinky? Or madoka, or whatever. What is she and what are we to her?
>>29580690We'll see. I'm still only...20% of the way there, in any case. Now, there's a girl named Oriko I'm having trouble with right now who has one of those weapons. Does that name ring any bells?
>>29580690"I'm a sucker for longshots.""What do you mean she knows what we did? What did we do to her?"
>>29580690[X] "How do you know about the golden weapons?also, apparently I'm the foretold harbinger of the apocolypse."
>>29580690"No offense, but I want to get a second opinion on this.""Does the name 'Malal' ring a bell for any of you?"
>>29580690"If I'm going to kill the transc one then I'm going to need to now what she did."
>>29580690I'm gonna have to go with Murderface on this one.
>>29580734>>29580748>>29580750>>29580753All of these so far
>>29580690"Acquire golden weapons, kill The Slutty One. Sounds easy enough. Can't say I didn't want to punch my own face in before."
>>29580690Seconding these>>29580753>>29580750Also, I know this will be a topic of contention, but I think we should tell Kyubey about everything in this conversation.
>>29580662>>29580690[x]Right, right. Go get the golden hoo-has, then shoot one of them. At least that sounds straightforward. [x]-Yknow, if I just kneecap both of them I bet it'd sort it self out-
>>29580690[x]"I've taken on worse odds."
>>29580690[x] "Didn't you say I shouldn't even meet this Transcendent One? Anyway, I'll have to gather some more information before deciding what to do. Not like I'm close to obtaining all the Golden Weapons yet anyway"
>>29580690"It sounds stupid, risky, and impossibly cliché. I love it. I can be self-destructive and productive at the same time. Let's kill evil me."
>>29580690[x] "I get the distinct impression that YOU, Dildoes, are not sharing information with the people that need it. Nor do you have all the information you need, as was just demonstrated."You, Murderface. WHY will killing the Transcendent One work? It sounds worth a shot, but let's hear your reasoning first."
>>29580690[x]"How exactly is killing one of us going to save Madoka? Why am I dragged into your shit anyway?[x]"I am so tired of running around and trying to fix all of your mistakes."
>>29580781>we should tell Kyubey about everything in this conversation.Malal said tell Koobs nothing.I trust both of them as far as I can throw them, but until we have a solid reason to throw out everything Malal related, I'm sticking with her plan.
>>29580753> MalalSHITFUCKSHITDO THEY KNOW HER
>>29580690I like the cut of your jib Murderface.
Too bad we didn't get to talk to Midori about what happened at Siberia yet, since then we could mention there's still a sane version of Godoka out there that's separate from Pinky. It'll probably be good idea to mention it to them once Midori eventually tells us what happened back then, since that may be a game changer for them.Or maybe I'm forgetting and chiaki already met her? I need to recheck the archives sometime.
Fuuuck all the revelations. Now I'm happy my Muramasa vote was outvoted.
>>29580833It would seem unlikely.They predate her.
>>29580781NO.We tell him nothing! He doesn't care about Madoka, all he cares about is entropy. His methods my be better then the canon QB, however what he is doing is still the same. Turning little girls into the avatars of their despair!
>>29580690>>29580690[X] Spill. Why do I have to kill Madoka or this Transcendent One? I don't take a retirement job without full disclosure on what I'm up against
>>29580753Pretty fuckin' important shit here.
>>29580784I understand how nice it is to finally get some exposition, but why are we asking now when (at the quest's current rate) it will be years of our actual lives in the future before we can act on any of this information? We'll all just forget, misremember, never read, or endlessly argue about it in the meantime and then fuck it up when it actually becomes relevant.
>>29580867[X] "OK, let me break this shit down for you.I am going to do my damnedest to fix this.YOU - ALL OF YOU - are going to shit down, shut the hell up and give me exactly what I need, when I ask for it, no questions asked.DO I make myself clear?"
>>29580867They did meet Malal and Midori inside the Witch Barrier, though.
>>29580690[x]"Well, there has to be at least one time I don't fuck up. I'll do it, I'll kill the transcendent one"
>>29580690[x]"I always wanted to kill myself. It's a dream come true."
>>29580690"Alright alright alright, back up a second. Let me see if I have this straight.There is not one, but TWO incomprehensible god-like entities who have flipped their shit and gone insane, one of them is inside my head and the other one is doing... something, not sure what, but the one inside my head created a bunch of weapons which make people go literally insane and trap souls inside themselves, and the only way to kill either god is to gather them all up and do... something, in a place as vague as 'the realm where gods and mortals meet'. And even then, there's still one insane god left hanging around, except now it's even more insane because we just killed the only thing keeping it in check?I have three questions. First, why me? No, seriously, why the fuck? Second, where the hell does Malal fit in with this?And third, WHY IN THE FUCK DID NOBODY THINK TO TELL ME THIS SOONER. It's like everyone has been conspiring to keep me in the dark for AS LONG AS FUCKING POSSIBLE by giving vague bullshit answers which don't make any sense without context! Context that has been willingly withheld from me, even though I'm apparently the only one capable of fixing it all! What the fuck is that all about!?"And then just write "EVERYTHING AWFUL, WHY ME?" in the journal and underline it twice.
>>29580893Wasn't somebody going to make an actual compilation for all the stuff we put into the new journal?
>>29580912Yeah, but they're missing critical information about Malal.And this time it's out turn to withhold information.They really don't need to know what we've driven poor Kaneda to.
>>29580912They didn't see her face. That's all what counts.And I don't think they are aware that Chiaki is not this timeline's true Homura, she's an invader.>>29580943>And this time it's out turn to withhold information.ARE YOU RETARDEDNOEVERYTHING MUST BE SHARED AND TALKED ABOUT OR WE'RE DEAD MEAT
>>29580939This will happen probably next thread. There'll be a pastebin.
>>29581012[X] "Someone I know is already way ahead of you losers."
>>29581012You know, now we've got trancendhomu out there we can skip the pink and just hook those two up.
>>29581012We should ask our fellow not-Homus what they think of watermelon end.
>>29580939That would be nice. Maybe also a detailed list of things we know to be in our inventory, as well. Speaking of which, we should find an empty shipyard or warehouse or something spend an afternoon pulling things out of our special inventory and making a note of what kind of stuff we're packing.
>>29580937Well, they said that the incarnation that they told everything too killed herself
>>29581084/tg/ does not commit suicide that easily.
>>29581077>Speaking of which, we should find an empty shipyard or warehouse or something spend an afternoon pulling things out of our special inventory and making a note of what kind of stuff we're packing.Preferably shipyard, there's no way we can fit the Iowa into a warehouse.
>>29580966they CAN'T tell us everything.and we SHOULDN'T tell them everything.Malal compartmentalised everybody for a reason.
>>29580839They didn't really meet, Godoka only saved their fragments after they died so they never actually saw her.Still, sounds useful for later on if we ever get to it.
>>29580690[x]"Cant we just.. hook them up or something? They are both crazy, both annoying, both not human. They should get along."
Alright, pausing for now! Thread to continue tomorrow night, earlier this time! Starting off with most voted option too!Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always great! We have a writeup incoming, so questions answered after it!
>>29581065I think they're on record as being in favor of the rindless, seedless watermelon end.
“Sayaka-chaaan~!” Mere moments after Miki Sayaka stepped into the crappy fast food joint a few blocks from her apartment, she was struck by a bullet of white, yellow, and pink-red, one that nuzzled into her neck not unlike a cat from the moment it connected. “Holy carp, I didn’t think you’d actually come!”“Come on, have I ever stood you up before?” The blue-haired girl snickered, wedging her hands between the two of them to pry her friend off. “I’ve got a favor to ask, anyway.”“…You can let go now,” she murmured after a few lengthy seconds with no luck. The little American didn’t look like much, but once and a while, her Eversor showed through. A moment later, a shiver down Sayaka’s spine as enthusiastic nuzzling turned to nibbling, and she tore the smaller girl away. “Christ, Amber, everyone’s staring!”“Only ‘cause you started yelling, dummy.” It was a small relief, at least, that Amber was still Amber. Whatever she’d had to do since…whatever the hell happened, she had the same grin, the same playful glint in her yellow eyes. Sayaka worried about her. She really did. “And anyway, it wouldn’t be weird if you just let me come over to your place.”“Come on, you know I can’t do that. Kyouko’d get the wrong idea. You’d GIVE her the wrong idea.”“Well that’s just mean. I’ve got enough love for two! She can sleep at the foot of the-okay, okay.” Amber giggled, seemingly unfazed by Sayaka’s withering stare, and the two idled together among hushed whispers as they waited to order.Ten minutes and a tray piled with an enormous amount of junk later, they sat in relative silence, neither quite sure how to bring up what they wanted to talk about. Deep, blue eyes met shining amber time and again, and Sayaka almost spoke, almost. It wasn’t supposed to be hard, or anything. She just needed to get her sword fixed. But that wasn’t what she was worried about, exactly, either.(1/6)
God, It's like we're in Chrono Trigger, and we just got to the part where we find out about Lavos wrecking the world. Except we're stuck in 2300 AD and have to break the game to get on the Black Omen and kill Zeal.
>>29581165“Hey, Amb…“ she finally began, only to be cut off by a few fries being delicately shoved into her open mouth.“Gotcha~ So how’ve you been? How’s the Equerry thing going? Do you need me to kill her?” They’d talked about it a couple of times before. Well, Sayaka hadn’t really MEANT it that way. Maybe. Mostly. She didn’t want to have to mean it that way, and she didn’t really think Amber took her that seriously. “’Cause I’m gonna be honest, I have all kinds of pent-up frustrations, here. Like, wow.”“I don’t-“ When the Equerry opened her mouth to reply, another fry slid into her mouth. “Quit it!” But even so, it was hard not to laugh. Amber was a pain in the ass, but…she was refreshing, too. A lot like Kyouko could be. “I don’t know. I mean, she’s getting…better? Since she got back from her…vacation, we’ve almost gotten along pretty well.”“Aww, if I knew all it took to butter Sayaka-chan up was a promotion, I would have become a Warmaster years ago.” Amber leaned on the table, resting her head on one hand as she fed her lover(?).“It’s not-“ Fry. “It’s not like that! She’s really been trying to clean up her act. I don’t really get it-“ Fry. “I don’t really get it, but-““I bet it’s for Fatty. And Miss Mammies.”“Fatty? And don’t-“ Fry. “Don’t talk about Mami-san like that.” The blue-haired Eversor had more or less resigned herself to being fed at this point. Not like it was hurting anything – she knew Amber hadn’t tampered with these. Probably. It would have been hard.“Green Fatty. The one she was makin’ out with.”“Oh, Midori-chan. Yeah, maybe? She basically treats her like a body pillow, though.” Fry. “Something soft she can do whatever she-“ Fry. “-wants with, because they won’t stop her.”“Ahaha, is that really her name? Omigod, that poor fatty.”(2/6)
>>29581115>and we SHOULDN'T tell them everything.Why not? They are already dead and gone, they are fragments of soul and/or memory. The more Chiaki tells them, the more they will be willing to tell Chiaki because they know that she already is in the middle of the things they aren't telling her and they have no reason to hold back anymore.
>>29581191“Yeah, seriously…” The next fry she took slower, nibbled on in deep thought. “So how’re you doing in…uh…whatever it was?” Sayaka felt like she made a mistake the moment she’d said it – a shadow crossed Amber’s normally bright features, and though she sprung mostly back into place a second later, the very edge of it remained.“Still crazy, still stupid. I’m running out of people to talk to, now all I can get from Sab and Wendy is like ‘bawww some animal died bawww my girlfriend bawww everything is the end of the world’, and Jade pretty much just follows Wendy around.”Wendy. Wendy Wendy Wendy, again. Sayaka opened her mouth to-Fry.“I still can’t tell you, Sayaka-chan. Yet. Maybe. That’s kind of what I wanted to talk about…” Her face fell, and the fries finally stopped. The little American cleared her throat and covered her mouth with her hands, forcing out a faux-trumpet fanfare.“This is an invitation to Warmaster ‘Murderface’ Matsuda and her associates to formally discuss a temporary alliance with the Church of the Golden Land.”“…What?” She nearly dropped the burger she was raising to her mouth.(3/6)
>>29581145Can't we just get Pinky and Akuhomu to hatefuck each other at Golden Weapon point, if necessary?
>>29581145Grats on getting that VN job Decu!Hope that it's less stressful from your previous work.
>>29581209“The Church of the Golden Land wants you.” Amber stood just enough to reach over and poke Sayaka in the chest. “There’s somebody that’s causing us and the Warmaster both trouble, so we figured we’d get your help. Maybe, you know…build up some trust between us.”The Equerry knew it, looking into Amber Nakajima’s eyes. ‘Save me, Sayaka-chan’. That’s what Amber wanted to say. This was her chance to do something about all the vague…vague bullshit she’d been fed every time they’d met. Would have been better if she could just bust in somewhere and start cutting people apart, but-“Sooo can you talk to her about it? And it’d be good if you came, too. And maybe Miss Mammies? But probably not Miss Mammies. It’ll be me, Wendy, Jade, and a few local reps. We’re not going to ask you to come unarmed or something, but, y’know. Maybe tell her not to start shooting people.” The American’s expression was cool (by her standards), her voice quiet.“…When? We’ve got a mission soon, but…”“Get ahold of me when you’re done and we’ll set up a time, mmkay?” She relaxed back into her seat and unwrapped a burger, as though nothing at all were wrong.---(4/6)
>>29581198Because Malal told us not to.Besides, who knows what Ribbon Homu or Pinky is actually capable of pulling out of them.Most importantly... what good does it actually do?
>>29581228“You did WHAT to her? What…how? I know she’s pretty hard on herself…” While the rest of lunch had been kind of awkward, the favor Sayaka had to ask seemed to kick things back into a normal pace for the two of them. Amber clutched, as she put it, the broken remains of Blueberry Cheesecake Brownie, the faintest vestiges of tears in her eyes.“…I broke her in a fight with Murderface.”“The crap did she use? A black hole? Some kinda super-laser? The power of friendship?” Amber squeaked as she ran her fingers over the blade, then hugged it close. “Poor baby…”Sayaka scratched at the back of her neck.“She was using Kharn’s old weapons. The gold ones.”“…Ah. Yeah, I guess those are pretty hardcore.” A moment of silence passed between them. “So how bad did you beat her? Pretty bad, I bet. For hurting my baby.”“… …Y…yeah. …I beat her…pretty bad.” Sayaka stared at the ground, mumbling out her half-assed lie. She squeezed her eyes shut when Amber started to laugh.“You lost to a Vindicare, didn’t you? You got beat by a Vindicare! Oh crackers! Wow. Just…just wow.” It was all Amber could do, really, to not cry as laughter overtook her.“She got a lucky punch! She was still juiced up by the fucking golden axes!” The Equerry snarled as she tried to preserve the pride she had left.“It’s-it’s okay, Sayaka-chan! I still love you! But, um, I’ll be the husband, okay? You can…you can stay home and raise the ki-hi-hi-hids-!” Another peal of laughter overtook her, nearly sending her sprawling on the ground. “Oh man I’m gonna pee myself…!”“Just fix the fucking sword, Amber. I need it for the mission.”“Hee, yeah…yeah, okay…yeah…Mmm.” The redhead wiped a tear away from her eye. “I need to borrow a lab, though. Could you get me in?”(5/6)
>>29581205HOPE I'M RUNNING LATE AAAA SORRY IF I'M LATE AAAA
>>29581253“…Sure. I’ll make up a reason. I’ll just…tell them you’re a consultant, or something.” She let out a small noise as Amber’s arms squeezed tight around her again, sword still clutched in one hand. …She didn’t try to push her away this time. This time, she held her close, just for a minute, and ran her fingers through silky red hair.“…Hey, Amber. I’ll…I’ll get you out of there, okay? Don’t worry.”“I was never worried, Sayaka-chan. You’re my hero, y’know.” It felt like a long time for both of them, and even then, it wasn’t nearly long enough. At least, for Amber. Sayaka already felt bad for doing THIS much, but the American’s smile made it worth it. It wasn’t wide, joyful, or exaggerated, like usual. If Sayaka didn’t know her as well as she did, she might have nearly missed it entirely.Just a soft curve or her lips and a small light in her eye, then a gentle kiss on Sayaka’s cheek. For a moment, there were no masks or pretenses between them. And then, though it was only briefly there, it was gone, shattered by a bark and a sharp salute.“Sayaka-chan! No witnesses!”“And no discounts.” Sayaka returned her salute, less enthusiastic but no less crisp.She’d get her in the R&D lab as soon as she could. And if she could talk Murderface’s dumb ass into it, maybe she could finally make good on her promise.Maybe she really could save her.(6/6)
>>29581236Chiaki gets to KNOW things. Knowledge is literally the only thing that can save her here. esus christ, the suggestion alone of withholding info is insane because it cripples Chiaki in turn. The entire goddamn quest we've been fighing against the ignorance that was forced on Chiaki by fucking everyone and every circumstance and now you'd just allow for there to be angles left unexplored? Seriously?
>>29581145Thanks for writing!>>29581273Interesting write-up, looking forward to the meeting now.
>>29581198Because our conversation time is finite and we shouldn't bog down every conversation with every character we encounter by giving full disclosure about everything ever. There's nothing wrong with telling the truth, our problem has always been excessive candor.
>>29581228>fryaka>that face>my sides.
>>29581302>Because our conversation time is finiteU wot? This is brainspace, there is no finite time here. Did you notice how a few posts up the Homuras explained their entire backstory, the happenings of PMMM, just like that? THis is exposition time and it will be had.
>>29581145Thanks again for running, Decu!So... Say, hypothetically, we had a bunch of story and character ideas - mostly finished already - for the setting, but didn't know where they fit - such as which officio to stick them in. How would somebody go about working that out with you?
>>29581334And by story I mean writeup, herp.
Cooldown, write more damn you. I want to see more of the eighth.Have some Warmaster's being warmasters while we're on autosage
>>29581273Looks like someone wants out of the cult.And into Sayaka's pants.
>>29581145>tomorrowYayHow long in advance do you have the OP ready?
>>29581334Ah, please email me for that so we can talk! Also, please don't think I'm ignoring you or anything, work really gets me busy so sometimes I don't get to check my emails a lot! If I don't reply, please send it again!>>29581227Hahaha, well, I have to do it alongside my job and boxing, but I'll manage!
>>29581331exposition doesn't have to be two way.The other Homus already admitted that they're not gonna tell us everything.It would be smart to play the same game back.
>>29581145Will Chiaki be able to ask Mami or QB about the Ninth's current Grief Seed reserves and our current projected consumption rate versus projected harvesting rates?Does the Ninth harvest all of their own Grief Seeds, do we buy part of our stocks from other Officio's, or do we even sell Seeds to other Officio's?
>>29581371Yeah, I've really gotten out of the habit and I need to quit. Wendy's got a lot I'll start into when the CHURCH (it's not a cult okay) arc starts properly.Also kicking around another narrator (pictured) so I can go into the Eighth at present, since Wendy's pretty far-removed from it right now.
>>29581253>“… …Y…yeah. …I beat her…pretty bad.” Sayaka stared at the ground, mumbling out her half-assed lie. She squeezed her eyes shut when Amber started to laugh.>“You lost to a Vindicare, didn’t you? You got beat by a Vindicare! Oh crackers! Wow.

You can…you can stay home and raise the ki-hi-hi-hids-!” Another peal of laughter overtook her, nearly sending her sprawling on the ground. “Oh man I’m gonna pee myself…!”Eeeeexcelent
>>29581422They don't want to tell Chiaki everything because they think she'd go insane and kill herself over the things they would tell her. Sharing the state she is in and the things she has experienced and knows can only convince them to share more of what they know. They quite obviously have no idea of the outside situation, I wonder if these chicks even know what an officio is.
>>29581377Usually an hour or so before thread time!>>29581423Of course!I will say now that the Ninth does buy from other Officios, mostly from the Second. Sometimes the Ninth does supply to other Officios when there's too much of it.Grief Seeds are a moving resource in MGNQ!
>>29581462Which Officio's have the highest contentment rates among their Magical Girls?Who has the happiest girls, versus most number of contented girls?
>>29581331I'm sure Chiaki Matsuda can spend years catching up with herself in golden weapon dreamtime, but I don't want the conversation to drag along for years of real time. We only get six or seven (?) prompts per thread, and eventually Deculture will plot contrivance this conversation to a halt, so I'd rather we spend our remaining time focusing on immediate concerns rather than contuing down the path of mutual exposition storytime.
>>29581458>I wonder if these chicks even know what an officio is.Murderface should, because she's a Homura from an Officio-timeline where the Procedure didn't work as well, and she killed Kharn and everyone else in the Officio.She's a Chiaki that messed up worse than the current Chiaki.
>>29581331He more probably meant real life thread time. We already have a huge laundry list of background things we should do, like >>29581106, that we will never get around to doing just because we only have a limited amount of time to do stuff each thread.I mean, we got back from Siberia sometime in may last year and the arc ended in october-ish, and that was only a span of a few days ingame.
>>29581510Things were different back then. Pinky didn't exist back then.
>>29581458>implying Dildoes wasn't the one who created the Officio system in an earlier loop. She seems the type.OK, let me drop this science on your assembled wisdom. How EXACTLY do you think those two are going to react to the just how badly YET ANOTHER Madoka fucked herself to save the universe they screwed up?This is shit you do not need to burden them with.
>>29581462Anything you care to share about Shock Cocoon?
>>29581273Amber's an Eversor?
>>29581526They had their tries, they already know the stakes. And what is one more madoka among more than ten thousand? Deal with it, Chiaki sure does and she'll pull this straight again. For that, she needs answers. Plus, there can't be proper golden weapon synergy when the wielder and the occupant don't trust and confide in each other. That much should be possible.
>>29581574>what is one more madoka among more than ten thousand?except it's not.It's one Madoka ten thousand times.Kaneda is a whole 'nother Madoka.
>>29581600>Kaneda is a whole 'nother Madoka.We either owe that girl a drink or a kick in the cunt.possibly both
>>29581527It's sci-fi psychological horror with a Ufology slant to it. Aliens and stuff. The main story as I was given it is pretty harrowing stuff, in the vein of Nitroplus games. I hope to at least be able to deliver that kind of horror in my writing, hahaha!>>29581490Hmm, it depends! Usually the Eighth has the highest contentment rates, though, next to the Ninth. Happiest girls...not too sure, but the Fourth is generally happy if they're building stuff and augmenting the crap out of everything!
>>29581574It would probably be a bit different because they said this is the final and permanent loop, so they can't just undo it and forget about it like all the other times. So it would be a final 'fuck you' to them when they realize the last madoka is gone.
>>29581569A lot of the upper-end Eighth is trained to be competent/excel in multiple roles; Amber's probably the closest thing they have to a Venenum rank leader, but she's also on the predominantly-Eversor special squad. The Eighth's Venenum corps as a whole (the Meat Wagon Squad) is trained for battle medic duty more than research and development purposes, though.The previous Venenum rank leader was Dahlia Marigold, for the record.
>>29581636>Usually the Eighth has the highest contentment ratesIs that related to the insanity of their Magical Girls?Or does Eight-Ball just have a really, really good benefits package?
>>29581662it's better than that. They've lost two of them this loop. Pinky AND Kaneda.We're still missing gaps. Big gaps.Really, all we've learned is stuff that was basically meta knowledge we all sort of knew anyway. Everything unique to this loop is still a mystery.
>>29581636How much time per average day do you spend thinking about mgnq?
>mfw Chiaki most socially competent Homura
>>29581636Huh. I really would have expected the Seventh or Seventeenth to have the highest happiness/contentment rates.
>>29581688Eight-Ball knows how to pick girls who love their work?
>>29581693big question that remains.What the fuck is a Culexus, how does one become one and why would you?
>>29581688Both!>>29581698Er, well...I spend most of the day doing work stuff, so...I guess 65% of the time? Otherwise, you know, just freeballing
>>2958172313th also has one of the highest life expectancies of the Officios.
>>29581771When will we get a chance for Chiaki to pick up a makeup kit, a comb, and some high-end shampoo, conditioner, and exfoliant?Because if even KHARN primped herself, there's no excuse for Chiaki Matsuda to not look her best in public.
>>29581843well, if the writeup is anything to go by, it seems like the time for Chiaki's departure from Warmastership is approaching quickly
>>29581771When do you think we are going to get around to Midori telling us the full picture of what happened in Siberia thread-wise? Feels like knowing that Godoka exists separate from Pinky will be really useful info to have after the convo we just had with the fragments.Also how long do you think the next mission is going to take? I really wanna see that cult arc since sounds fun, but I don't think I can wait another year at the pace we are going.
>>29581719Says alot about Homura huh?
>>29581771Taking over questions for Mr. Oh It's 3 AM I Have To Sleep.>>29581843Might be easier to just ask someone to get that for us.>>29581928When Midori's ready to talk about it. Which may be a while.
>>29582027Honestly? I kinda want to ask her about her time with her previous Officio more.Objectively I recogise that Chiaki probably needs to know what Midori remembers about what happened in the barrier more, though.
>>29581921Why do you think that? Nothing I got from that vibe apart from wendystabbings.
>>29581191>“Oh, Midori-chan. Yeah, maybe? She basically treats her like a body pillow, though.” Fry. “Something soft she can do whatever she-“ Fry. “-wants with, because they won’t stop her.”oh, that is so not fair.Fucking Blueberry judging Chiaki like she knows anything about her.
>>29582110Do you think the Chuch would be quite so quick to make that offer if Sayaka was the Warmaster?I wonder.
Calling it right now.Next shitstorm is whether we bring Midori with us for the cult arc.
>>29582122Sayaka making assumptions about Chiaki is pretty much her MO, If you haven't noticed. The only time Sayaka has seen us with Midori is at the housewarming party so anything else she thinks she knows is secondhand info from Kyouko and her own assumptions. To be fair, she's partially right. Chiaki has, so far, doted on Midori, but more than that she treats her as someone she can trust implicitly. Also, my meeting is over, I caught up with the thread. Hello.
>>29582183This is a great plan.
>>29582183the answer to that question is no unless she gets in either some serious Eversor or Vindicare training.>>29582211Oh, I know. It's absolutely Sayaka.
>>29582246However, as a Callidus, she's very good as a scout, and we need to see if she can make silent takedowns by sneaking up on a Magical Girl, swiping their Soul Gem and putting it into her Inventory.Though I suppose that Oriko's prescience would make Midori's illusion powers moot.So, have her do information analysis by going back through Officio records to recreate Chiaki's personnel file and find out what Malal redacted?
>>29582312that was the plan. By her own admission, Midori isn't much of a ninja, and our social circle among the Killers has a severe lack of people with her information processing talents.
>>29582027Which write-ups detail what the Vanus rank magical girls do?
>>29582657Not mine!I think they come up a few times in Prose Magica with Holly and Molly, but it's not a subject I've touched, and I don't think they come up a lot in others either.
>>29582789Well I just finished reading all of yours so I knew that.I am confused, but intrigued.
>>29582819That's what I shoot for.
>>29582657http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread.php/3313Haruka Amane, Vanus, comes up a lot. It isn't explicitly stated, but through her actions some of what Vanus girls do comes up: she analyzes, plans, and organizes; however, she does not lead
>>29583048She's a Vanus? I thought that Haruka was Culexus.
>>29583130No... She's a Vanus. No leather outfit for her; that'd be Yuma-chan...
>>29581693Didn't Malal have a golden bow? Couldn't she still be in that?
>>29583180Malal's bow wasn't ever referred to as Golden, so we're assuming it was just the regular Madoka bow. It seemed to hurt her to use it, but that may be a side effect of a Culexus trying to use their innate magic despite their own personal fields.
