You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently en-route to your next assignment - a smash-and-grab op, where you'll have to steal into a heavily-guarded facility, take something from it, and get back in one piece.You won't deny it, you love this kind of mission. Simple, easy, and completely lacking in any annoying VIPs with an unhealthy disregard for self-preservation. No security procedures to enforce, no patrols to conduct...just an opportunity for you to relax, stretch your legs, and kill people trying their best to kill you back.
>>29796676Innocence was a long time ago
>>29796676Made it by accident.
>>29796676And you're thankful to get out of your office for what seems like the first time ever since you got back from the Kirishima job. AS much as you appreciated Mami getting you exposed to the kind of stuff that a Warmaster should do - it just didn't feel right, the...the watch-wearing DILDONESS of it all. Even the concept of tolerating Kirishima Ruri at her worst for another minute longer didn't make you recoil as much as the sight of paperwork piling up on you desk hour after hour. In-between meetings with Kyuubey and Mami - where they continued to torture you with the boring part of being a Warmaster - you managed to catch up with Misaka, your favorite arms dealer. She was back in her secluded warhouse, and you caught her in the act of attaching what appears to be two collossal missile pods on top of Tiny Pete's shoulders. She was cursing a blue streak then, something about not getting the calibrations right - but all that stopped when you stepped into the warehouse, calling her name. You found yourself not caring at all as she crashed into you in a tackling hug, very nearly knocking you over and smearing your mainly-white costume with grease and engine oil. It's your opinion that no matter how much shit anyone's gone through, no one has the right to be grumpy after being greeted with the same bright-eyed enthusiasm and joy as the little Russian had.After a few minutes of getting Misaka to calm down (and her just not standing for it, completely elated that you've come to visit) you finally discover that she'd just been back from another trip from Siberia. You attempt to ask how Souji and Kharn are adjusting to married life, but this only gets you a pouting tantrum from Misaka, and a screaming tirade of how Kharn seemed to be taking up all of Souji's time, now that she's gotten all fat and pregnant and stupid. With twins, apparently, if the preliminary ultrasound wasn't lying.[1/2]
might want to post the thread on twitter
>>29796705After she calmed down from THAT, though, Misaka did admit that she was, in a way, very excited to be an aunt - or really, more like an older sister, considering that Souji had been the only one to raise the young arms dealer. She'd already picked out nicknames for the two future offspring - nicknames that she was obviously proud of. Gork and Mork, she shared with you with nothing less than a thousand-watt smile. After a bit more of catching up, you finally decide to head home, but not before telling Misaka that she can always visit you anytime at your apartment, or at the office if she wants to. She smiles at this, and hugs you again. Telling you how happy she was that you visited. That her big sister visited.She also gave you a new teleport beacon, for you to use in case you needed Tiny Pete's help again. It's shaped, amusingly enough, like a small gold pocketwatch.More meetings came after that, more bureacratic garbage that you could handle - until salvation came in the form of a green-haired angel with a tray of pancakes and spiked lemonade. You asked for a break then, and Mami and Kyuubey were only too happy to oblige (you'd been filling your ashtray ever since the three-hour-long fiscal earnings meeting started).It's then, as you enjoyed your dinner, with her rubbing your shoulders - she noticed you wincing whenever you moved your neck, and offered to try and fix it - that you asked her about her future in the Ninth. What she wanted to do.You told her about what Mami asked you the other day, and how you wanted for Midori to choose for herself. If she had something else in mind other than those two options, then she's welcome to suggest them, too.[2/3]
>>29796705>Tiny Pete armed with both Reaper Autocannon & Cyclone Missile LauncherConfirmed for best termie.
>>29796705>twinsGood lords, what have we wrought?
>>29796733God damnet Karn
>>29796733It wasn't easy to get her to make a decision, in the end. She kept on asking you to choose for her, stammering something about being happy with whatever you decided, what you wanted. You couldn't help but laugh at this - god knows you don't find much reason to laugh nowadays - but after laying out what kind of work was expected of her in either role (with Mami coming in and helping you with the nitty-gritty of it), she finally chose to be an instructor for the Callidus Rank. Both Kyuubey and Mami seemed pleased at her decision, although the blonde did remark something about regretting that she wouldn't be getting help with your paperwork, causing Midori to get flustered and stammer all over the place again. Mami put a stop to that with one of her smiles - and after asking you for permission, to 'borrow' Midori for a bit, took the Callidus out of your office, to get her introduced to Enishi and the rest of the rank. You remember the brief look of fear and panic Midori shot you just as she was pulled away from the door, with you only able to wave and lament that you'd cut your own backrub short.You filled another ashtray after that, as you continued the meeting, this time with only Kyuubey for company. Fuck if the mutant cat loved to hear itself talk.Thankfully, that's more or less twenty-four hours ago. Right now, you're sitting in what could be one of the biggest pieces of equipment the Ninth had ever fielded - its very own AC-130W, Stinger Variant, cruising towards Singapore at 40,000 feet above sea level. It's also night time - a few minutes to midnight, actually. Kyuubey had insisted that the op be run at night, under the cover of darkness.[3/4]
>>29796772In any case, you're now waiting in the passenger area. Sakura Kyoko, one of your teammates on this op, is noisily slurping cup noodles beside you, an open manga on her lap (the latest issue of Eiyuu Densetsu Rena: Super Extreme Hardcore, she told you when you asked. Apparently it's one of those superhero comic books imported from the US and translated to Japanese). Your other teammate, Miki Sayaka, is sitting on your opposite side, the rifle components of Blueberry Cheesecake Brownie's sheath spread on a black cloth on her lap. She'd been obsessively cleaning each piece as soon as the three of you got on and got settled in.Thirty minutes..well, that's still thirty minutes too long. You want to get to the good part already. The part where you get to go back to being a Magical Girl again, instead of being a watch-wearing dildo....Oh, yeah. You're supposed to review the mission dossier Kyuubey gave you before takeoff. It's on your lap right now, just waiting to be read. You didn't manage to do so earlier, with it being buried under more paperwork that you had to resist dumping into a shredder.What do you do now?Review the dossier.Get Sayaka to do it for you.

>>29796853Come on. Blueberry isn't THAT petty... is she?
Something tells me Murderface got very very good at improvising.>>29796853Skim, Sayaka probably reads these things, then discards half of it thst she doesnt agree with, judt like Chiaki. (We probably discard the oppossing halves, though)
>>29796788>[X]Review the dossier.We didn't bring Sayaka to be our field secretary.
>>29796889Why DID we bring her? Close support?
>>29796905It's a Smash and Grab mission. Sayaka provides Smash and field-healing in case things go south.
>>29796905Paladin-chan is our moral compass and devil's advocate. I think she's on this mission just to give her something to do as equerry. For close support just Kyouko would have been enough.
>>29796788>[x]Review the dossier.we should know what we're doing ourself instead f having others do it for us
We brought them both on this supposedly easy mission as a way to blow off steam. It's huge overkill, but it should be a fun bonding exercise.But things are never as simple as they seem...
[x]Review the dossier.Sayaka would probably just chew it up or something.
>>29796976I don't believe for a moment that Sayaka will pass up the opportunity to be a dildo and bitch at us sbout how unprepared and disorganized we are.Which us why we made her equerry on kyobros advice.

>>29797080>Eiyuu Densetsu Rena: Super Extreme Hardcorewhat is this and why are you shouting
Friendly reminder that, if we get to choose a golden weapon, please don't choose the sword. Those who remember the Sayaka arc will recall that Kyouko was foretold to be killed by Chiaki and Kirika. It's meta information that we don't know in-character, but let's try to not have that happen today all the same.
>>29797148yeah killing kyoko is a pretty god damn terrible thing to do considering she is our friend.its a fuck terrible thing to do yo.

>>29797178You mean chainaxes?
>>29797188yeah, i keep forgetting gorefather and gorechild are chainaxes not chainswords.shit
>>29797178That's what I said, I never said that they were different persons.
>>29797196i remember alot of people thought for some reason it was the first hollow quest proto risa.also pinky as monologue is hilarious as explains a hell of alot.
>this quest will end up with essentially every hero fighting every final boss from every quest on /tg/ with the very center of it all will probably be chiaki vs akuma homura and fixing literally all the bullshit post that movie.

>>29797160We probably shouldn't choose the chainaxes then.Do we get bonus points if we get Sayaka to kill Kyoko?
>>29797252for 4chanX users >>29771350
>>29797252I am now expecting Risa to suddenly pop up in Hero Quest and randomly challenge Rena to a Swedish Fish eating contest.
>>29797252>>29797259I just noticed that Risa specifically blew out one of their knees with a gravity orb thing.[conspiracy theories intensifies]
>>29797255I think Decu would punch us all from the moon if that happened.
>>29797166I never liked OPM as a manga or setting so I never bothered
>>29797262Oddly enough, Hero Quest doesn't cross over much, despite being ideally suited to it because (usually) light hearted and the bounty board format working really well for rotating guest-cast of cross-dimensional weirdos.>>29797273Gonna have to up our game this mission then, because Risa is level pegging with Chiaki for "number of knee-caps blown out".
>>29797255Can we just stick to weapons that won't end in us fucking up horribly? I mean, I know that's Chiaki's specialty and all but really, that shit is just dumb.
>>29797287If you didn't know, you'd almost certainly never be able to tell the inspiration.Which isn't anywhere near as damning as it might sound, because it's very good on it's own merits.
>>29797292so gauntlets, The Deagle, and our assortment of normal weapons, got it.
>>29797200>>29797224>>29797252>>29797262>>29797273great now I have to read 2 more questssince I'll have to go to the archicle any way can some one recomende me a good gundam questsorry for off topic

>>29797311don't do it, dood! It's all a trap to keep you in sleep debt forever!
>>29797297Chiaki's combat strength seems to be general unpredictability and the only way to emulate that with the golden weapons is not to be caught overusing the same ones again and again.If we try to avoid using them, it's going to fuck us over as surely as if we don't.
Stupid idea I've had for a while and needed to sketch out.
new here...Googled "magical girl noir quest"..do I really have to read 173 threads to know whats going on?http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=deculture
>>29797377Yes, but if you don't want to read the archives, I don't know why you'd want to be here in the first place.
>>29797377No.You totally SHOULD, but there are recaps you could use for turbo catchpup.
>>29796810 >>29796817 >>29796824 >>29796828You decide to review the dossier yourself. As much as every cell in your body is recoiling at the sight of more paperwork - and the temptation of 'delegating' it to your equerry proving to be almost too much - it'd probably be much faster and easier for you to read it on your own. Besides, she'd probably bitch at you about being lazy or abusing your authority, or something.You flip through the fortunately (and slightly worryingly) thin dossier in no time flat. The off-shore facility you're heading towards is called the Big Shell, a large marine decontamination facility established approximately 20 kilometers away from Singapore's coastline. Once the property of the Singaporean government in an attempt to combat a major oil spill ten years prior, it's now owned by a marine biology research company focusing mainly on shellfish and other deep-sea specimens.Reading more into the dossier, you discover some facts about the facility: namely, how it's comprised of two hexagonal structures, connected end-on-end, north to south. Shell 1 and Shell 2. Each 'shell', then, consists of a central "core" surrounded by six struts - with each strut housing a different sub-facility key to the operation and maintenance of the facility itself.The estimated number of personnel currently stationed in Big Shell number into the hundreds - five hundred to be exact, give or take fifty or so engineers that get cycled with fifty more in reserve in Singapore. Security is supposed to be light - just security guards trained to repel pirates - but the recent surveillance photos that Kyuubey had managed to procure show a different story, with heavily-armed men in combat gear patrolling the struts and providing overwatch. [1/2]
>>29797413>it's now owned by a marine biology research company focusing mainly on shellfish and other deep-sea specimens.tentacles.We're probably going to burn this place to the ground.
>>29797350I'm sure she can put her expertise to good use.
>>29797413One of the pictures, grainy as they are, also managed to capture a particularly heavily-armored individual standing on top of one of the struts, balanced precariously there, and flipping the camera off. You can't make out just who it is - its armor covering it from head to toe - but the confident stance and slight build gives away the fact that it is, in fact, a Magical Girl. Just one wearing some fancy type of full-body armor suit."Oh, Rena, you're so silly! Again with the lasagna!" Kyoko cackles beside you, half-muffled by a mouthful of instant ramen.You continue reading. The mission - you, Sayaka and Kyoko, are to recover something from Big Shell for the client (who is curiously unnamed in this dossier). That something isn't listed either - only that it's stored in what looks like a very ornate and very gaudy jewelry box. The sort grandmothers store their jewelry in.The dossier doesn't say where it's kept in Big Shell, either, only the client's suspicion that it's kept under heavy guard in one of the cores. Amusingly, the client had also seen fit to mention that they don't particularly care what happens to Big Shell right after the operation - only that the main objective be secured and delivered.Best mission. Best mission ever."Right, right, you've been gushing about it ever since takeoff," Sayaka grumbles beside you, before blowing through what looks like an AR-15's truncated barrel. "Just don't overdo it today, alright? This is supposed to be a simple smash-and-grab run. We don't need to take unnecessary risks." It's here that she turns towards you. "Speaking of unnecessary, what kind of golden shit did you bring? You brought one along, didn't you?"Which Golden Weapon did you bring? You only brought one along with you. The VII Golden Weapon. The IX Golden Weapon. The XV Golden Weapon. The XX Golden Weapon. No, you didn't bring any.

>>29797701>only that it's stored in what looks like a very ornate and very gaudy jewelry box.Hmm. Fun thought. It says that we are to recover the objective. It doesn't say we have to retrieve the box? So we can take a look inside with... impunity, assuming it's not like, Pandora's Box or something.But if it is, they've only got themselves to blame for not telling us not to open the goddamn box.
So, how royally screwed is our time stop? Does it work still, is it broken, or do we just meet an eldritch goddess of rectal bleeding every time we engage the shield?
>>29797701>That something isn't listed either - only that it's stored in what looks like a very ornate and very gaudy jewelry box.By show of hand - who else thinks we might be picking Necronomicon here?
>>29797728Well, it might not say that, but I doubt it would reflect well on the professionalism of the Officio though if we do that
>>29797737The latter. It works when Pinky lets it work, and if we're not using it to talk to her she cancels it on us.

>>29797728Thats pretty amusing actually. Why bother with guards, when you can just put the real item in some random bag, and put something worthless in the box. :)

>>29797826>tentacle monstrosity"I can't tell if that means you're angry, crazy or horny. Please don't say it's all three at once."
>>29797826We all can.
>>29797826Am I the only one who thought that scene with Pinky after the retcon was far creepier than the one before it?
>>29797823Who knows. Pinky wanted to talk to us when we met Haruka and we blew her off. We haven't tried anything with it since then.
>>29797840Oh yeah, I forgot about that.I wonder if she was actually planning on warning us about that being a horrible idea, possibly by eating Haruka right there.
>>29797853probably related to the appearance of RibbonHomu.
>>29797829Homulove knows no bounds.
>>29797758It must have a mummified... cat or bird in it or something.
>>29797947>ancient egyptian QB Mummy
>>29797959Not sure if that'd be hilarious or metal.
>>29797976Why not both?Perhaps a QB didn't get to eat his body in time and the Ancient Egyptians decided the wish granting GOD CAT thing needed to be mummified. So from thereon, they mummified all the cats
>>29797984Oh, man. Scrap the mission now. There's no way it can live up to this.
>>29797984Maybe the ancient Egyptians hated the Incubators and the mummification of cats was an attempt to trap them in the body of a tiedup cat in the tombs whenever they died and transfered to the nearest cat.
>>29797984>>29798013Either of these theories would be pretty fucking cool.
>>29798043>YFW the QB is actually still alive.
>>29798049Four-by is actually Egyptian, not israeli
>>29797984This makes a frightening amount of sense.Alternatively, maybe it was a fuck you to the coob to keep him from eating the body.
>>29797442 >>29797464 >>29797469 >>29797486You nod. Yes, you brought one of your Golden Weapons with you, namely the chainaxes. You were tempted to bring the gauntlets along, but you wanted to give poor Yuu a bit more time to recover. You forgoed bringing along the Desert Eagle, too - as much as it seemed natural to have it resting against you in its shoulder holster, you wanted to see how it'd be like to just rely on something you've only begun to train with.Besides, if it came to the point that you needed to shoot something, there's always your Shield to puke out a rifle or two."That works, I guess. I mean, you could've brought along that Desert Eagle of yours, or Kirika's katana, but since I've been training you with those things..." Sayaka shrugs as she starts to reassemble the contraption she'd been fiddling around with, piece by piece. "Can you at least make sure you don't go on another rampage this time? Because as much as I enjoyed beating your ass unconscious, we probably won't have time to do that on this op."Whose ass got beat? You didn't hear that correctly. Did she just say SHE beat your ass unconscious? Because you're pretty sure you were the one left standing then, and--"You know what I mean, Murderface." Sayaka snaps. "Can you make sure or can't you?"You meet Sayaka glare for glare, before nodding. Yeah, you'll make sure. No more freakouts like the last time. You've got everything under control.Mostly, anyway. You still think Risa's too unpredictable for her own good, but at least she can be talked to."Good." The blue-haired Eversor finishes putting together Blueberry Cheesecake Brownie's sheath here, the parts snapping into place with a solid metallic click. "Now, let's go over the plan. Kyoko, put that stupid comic book away, and finish up your noodles. We need to get things straightened out here."[1/2]
>>29798128>That works, I guess. I mean, you could've brought along that Desert Eagle of yours, or Kirika's katana, but since I've been training you with those things...>we've been training with the katanawhen did this happen
"Almost done!" The red-haired Eversor raises a hand. "Just let me finish the last few pages, I think it's gonna end on another stolen kiss cliffhanger with the Monster Master chick or something--""KYOKO!""Alright, alright, jeez." The cup noodles is quickly slurped down and drained of its contents, the comic book closed and folded away. "What's the big deal, anyway? Aren't we just gonna drop in, kill everyone, and steal what the client asked for?" Kyoko looks at you, then at Sayaka. "That's all of it, right?""Well, uh..." Sayaka blinks here, before nodding. "That's right. But this isn't a purge, we don't need to do that unless we have to. We can do this the smart way - sneak in, kill anyone who notices, steal the thing, and then get out."Kyoko frowns. "That doesn't sound as fun as my plan, though.""It's a mission! It's not supposed to be fun!"...Huh. You were thinking that they'd be a bit more...well, in-sync with each other, considering that they're a couple. Now you realize that they can just have disagreements with each other, just like regular jackoffs."Anyway, look, Murderface." Sayaka takes the dossier from you and opens it to the map of Big Shell. "Our target's in either one of these two cores." She taps the two cuboid shapes surrounded by interlinking rings of hexagon shapes. "Once we're over Big Shell, we'll do a HALO jump at 35,000 feet, aiming for Strut A." She taps at the labeled hexagon with a gloved finger. "That's where their deep sea dock is, and where we can just swim up and infiltrate through. From there, we'll make our way to Strut B, since that's where their main power source is. We take that out, the entire facility goes dark, security and defenses go offline. Then we can just make our way to either core, take the main objective, and high-tail it back to Strut A for evac."[2/3]
>>29798133I think she means the chainaxes. There's 2 you know.
>>29798142Oh, you're right. I misread it.
>>29798134"...All this sneaking around. It's like we're Callidus, or something." Kyoko grins here, before nudging you with an elbow. "Shoulda bought Midori along too, eh? If we're gonna be sneaking around like her.""We still need to worry about the Magical Girl resistance Kyuubey warned us about," Sayaka cuts in. "We don't know which Officio they're from, so they're still a variable we shouldn't take lightly.""Eh, not like that stopped us before." Kyoko shrugs. "I don't like it, actually. It's too...sneaky for me." She crosses her arms. "I mean, I like it up to the entry thing? But maybe it's easier if we just go loud once we're in there. I mean, we're going to have to fight our way out of there eventually, right, Murderface?""Only if we fuck it up, which we won't, if we take out their power first." Sayaka insists. "Look, I know this looks like a great opportunity to fuck around, but until we're sure of what we're coming up against here, we should do this by properly! Come on, Kyoko, this is pretty fucking basic procedure!"The two Eversors glare at each other here, one crimson eye against two blue ones - before they both turn to you. Making you notice for the first time the apparent tension between the two - something you couldn't believe you didn't notice earlier."Well, let's see what Murderface thinks," Kyoko says quietly. "Murderface? What'd ya think? Sneak in or go loud?"How do you react?Sneak in.Go loud.The hell's up with the both of you?
>sneak in, kill anyone who notices, steal the thing, and then get out.If that's the plan, lets not wake Risa up until things go pear-shaped.

>>29798154Sneak. At least for a little bit. Couldn't hurt to try.
>>29798154[x]I agree with >>29798213
>>29798154>[x]Sneak in.we're still mostly Vindicare at heart, going in loud and smashing stuff from the get go doesn't feel right.then ask what's up.
>>29798222Infact, this mission is our reward for having been professional.
>>29798154>Sneak in then go loud once you get discovered.
>>29798225The Golden Eagle freaks me out, sorry anon.
>>29798225You also realize that if shit goes bad, the Deagle magically appears in our hands. If we just took it, we'd probably be shit out of luck if we got into melee.
>>29798225the Deagle has shown a propensity for turning up when we need it, and we have a shield full of non-golden firearms.
>>29798225I'd probably vote for the deagle more if I could remember one fight scene with it that was interesting since we shot Midori's knees.
>>29798225It's like making terrible pairings in Fire Emblem for the Support conversations; we're making a less-optimized decision to further our social links.
>>29798154[X] the hells up with the both of you?[X] compromise, sneak in until we hit the power, then once they are cut off? Go. Nuts, paint the fucking walls red
>>29798213>splitting party>especially when we have no idea what exactly we are up againts
>>29798233This mission is what we could have been doing instead of the Ruri mission. We only needed to do one of them, but we decided to accept two of the three options presented to us for some reason.
>>29797788Does this attention involve lewd things like holding hands
>>29798250[x]I like this, this is a good plan
>>29798225>muh Risa points>muh Cruor Praetoria
>>29798154[X] do >>29798250
>>29798213Throwing in my vote for this. Kyoko will be a liability if we go completely stealthy, and we're carrying two very loud chainaxes and an assortment of high calibre firearms.
>>29798273the Ruri mission demanded the attention of the Warmaster. It was in the contract.
>>29798154[X] The hell's up with both of you? Your periods in sync or something?
>>29798277When Pinky is involved, lewds are pretty much guaranteed.
>>29798250I like it
>>29798154NECO wake up. This is a bad time for a catnap.
>>29798299We spent plenty of time as an assassin. I feel sure we have silenced firearms
>Our stealthiest golden weapon is the katana
>>29798248There was the ballroom scene with Kilgore and his entourage of psychotic wives, during our protection detail with Iori. We went FoFA and proceeded to turn the entire dancefloor into a charnal house with the Deagle. Every hostile was pretty much salsa once we finished up.
>>29798412>Pros:Stealthy>ConsNever used without going screaming nutsSpirit inside hates us.apparently we may be going to kill Kyoko with it
>>29798412we are not cyborgs anononly cyborgs can use a katana on this ype of mission

>>29798481Why aren't we cyborgsIt feels like we should fix this
>>29796788...Rena? Oh you mutha-fu-The conspiracy thickens...this will call for more paranoid fanart.
>>29798481Sayaka's using a katana on this type of mission, does that mean she's a cyborg?

>>29798492>>29798532Remember when we got our arm chopped off by Kirika and Misaka said she would build us a mechanical arm that would make us strong as ten gorillas? Maybe we should have taken her up on that offer instead of having our regular arm regrown.
>>29798555It looks good. Hope you feel better soon, hat.
>>29798566maybe the armored Chiaki fragment did take her up on that offer - several times..... just a thought
>>29798451Actually, that was a DEagle + Knife combo.Still pretty much badass, even if we scared the Hell out of Kyouko in the aftermath.
>>29798160 >>29798167 >>29798250You narrow your eyes at your team mates. The hell's up with the both of them? You'd have expected this kind of behavior from anyone else, but not from the legendary wife and husband team of the fucking Ninth. Is there something you should know about, here, or should you chalk this up to their periods being in sync?Silence reigns in the passenger bay for a few moments, with only the sound of the plane's engines filling the void - before Sayaka finally speaks up, turning away. "No. It's...it's nothing, Murderface. Just something private that'll have to wait until after we get home. Right, Kyoko?"More silence, before Kyoko herself turns away as well."Yeah, okay." The red-haired Eversor nods. "Until after we get home, then."...Right. Well. To answer Kyoko's question, you do think that there's merit to what Sayaka suggested. Do the jump, sneak in without noticing, cut off their power."See?" You don't even have to look to see that Sayaka's trying her best not to sound like a bitch, here. "It's the most sensible way of doing things--"But it's the stuff after that you don't necessarily agree with Sayaka, you cut her off. After you cut the power...well, you'll take that as an opportunity to let off some steam. In fact, maybe all three of you should. You certainly think there's some stress that needs to be let out.Sayaka opens her mouth to protest, but sighs instead. "...Fine. Sure. But let's try and make our decision about that when we're already in there, alright? We don't know what kind of actual security they have there, and how many Magical Girls we'll be fighting."That sounds fair, you nod. More than fair."Ten minutes to destination." Rea's voice echoes throughout the passenger area. "Mission party, please assemble at departure area and prepare for imminent drop."[1/2]
>>29798528and look what happened to himHe won handily?
>>29798586I don't think so. The armor was described as being rather Kharn-esque in nature.Augmentation, certainly, but I don't think there was a lot of mechanical work in it, if you get my meaning.
>>29798586Probably shouldn't make that joke around the armored fragment, since in her timeline she killed Misaka along with everyone else.
>>29798596"Right, that's our cue." Sayaka stands up, stowing Blueberry Cheesecake Brownie back into its case. "Let's get this thing going."You and Kyoko make to follow her, but you find yourself stopping.Your Shield. It's clicking. Really loudly. Loud enough that it's impossible for Kyoko and Sayaka to miss it.But they're not saying anything. Kyoko's even yawning, here, grumbling about looking forward to getting home early."Murderface?" Kyoko taps your shoulder. "What's up? Come on, we gotta go."Tell them that you'll catch up in a little while. You need to see what's up with Pinky.Ignore the clicking. Go with them to the departure area.
>>29798615>[x]Tell them that you'll catch up in a little while. You need to see what's up with Pinky.HAHA! Time for Best Girl!

>>29798615[x] See what's up with Pinky, cancel timestop on other side of Kyouko, tap her on the shoulder and say it's nothing.
>>29798615[X] Check up on Pinky. Before she says anything, hold both her hands.itshappening.gif

>>29798615[X] Tell them that you'll catch up in a little while. You need to see what's up with Pinky.I think Pinky has already demonstrated that she can yank us into Timestop when she wants to. Best to listen to the clingy, insane Eldritch Abomination while we're on amicable terms.

>>29798615>[X]Tell them that you'll catch up in a little while. You need to see what's up with Pinky.Lets get this done. I just wish we had something to pacify her, as she no doubt going to be annoyed.
>>29798675In hindsight, I can see why.Still, best to see what our resident Goddess has to say.
>>29798615Talk to Pinky."This literally won't take a second, guys."
>>29798662Yes, we're gonna have like two minutes to talk...
[઼] Tell Pinky we will get her that MG's soul gem.
The time stop is instantaneous. Why do we need to tell them we'll delay at all? We'll end up saying "I need a moment" then be ready to go the next instant. It'll be more disconcerting if we say anything instead of just engaging the timestop and subsequently moving on.
>>29798738Not sure why this would be advisable since we don't actually have it on us. And when she found out, she might consider eating the two sitting in the plane next to us in it's place.

But--" Sayaka starts, frowning - but you've already engaged your Shield before she could even say another word. The gears inside the heavy metal disc grinding, screeching in protest as you force it to turn a complete ninety degrees, pushing until the familiar locking mechanism clicks home.The half-formed frown freezes on the Eversor's face, making her look like she's about to cry - just as the rest of the world does, in the dull cast-iron grey of your Time Stop. You'd laugh here, if not for the fact that you're not exactly looking forward to meeting your own personal Satan in pink. Not after what you learned from your...past selves? Is that what you're supposed to call them?But yeah. It's not...it's not that you're afraid of her or anything, no.More like...well. You feel guilty about the entire thing. About what happened to her. Why she turned into...how she is right now. About how most of it - if not all of it - is your fault, even if you don't exactly know or remember how you did it. "Homura-chan~" Her voice is immediately familiar, despite your not hearing it for a while already. It almost felt nostalgic, the way she sounded so happy to see you, despite you knowing full well that she's smiling with a mouthful of blood-pinked teeth.You look around, and see what looks like a trolley cart being wheeled towards you - the same sort of trolley cart that stewardesses hocking snacks push around the aisles. Only this cart isn't filled with snacks - rather, they're filled with severed heads, all of them from Magical Girls you've never seen before. You know they're magical girls, because they're holding their soul own soul gems in their mouths, their jaws locked around the bauble in rigor mortis.[1/2]
>>29799150not even an hour since last Decu post
>>29799176"Thank you for choosing Pinky Airlines again, Homura-chan!" Pinky giggles. "My, you're certainly racking up the miles! Get enough, and maybe I'll invite you to our exclusive Mile High Club!"Mile High what...?"I'll tell you when you're older." Pinky giggles again. "Oh, wait, actually, you already are! Two thousand years old's old enough, isn't it? That's no longer underage, right?" She doesn't wait for your answer, reaching down instead to pluck a soul gem from one of the severed heads rolling around her trolley. With a frightful, ear-splitting crunch, she bites through the nearly-black gem, and you hear what sounds like glass being ground to powder as she starts to chew. "See, Homura-chan, when two Magical Girls love each other very much, they get into an airplane bathroom, and--"...Wait. Stop. You get the idea. Just...what is going on? What's the costume about? You wanted to check up on her, since she was trying to get your attention, and--"You wanted to check up on ME, Homura-chan?" Pinky blinks her black eyes at you. "Just now? That's...that's actually funny! Because I was trying to get your attention DAYS AGO!"She throws the remaining half of the Soul Gem she'd just bitten through at you. You dodge it easily, and you turn to see it bounce off of Kyoko's forehead before tumbling away and disappearing in a curl of black flame. "I KNOW I KICKED YOU OUT BUT FOR FUCK'S SAKE, HOMURA-CHAN, I'M NOT YOUR FUCKING EX TO SNUB WHEN YOU'RE NOT IN THE MOOD TO JUST TALK!"What the fuck is up with everyone? It's like everyone else is taking cranky pills. Even Pinky.Well, anyway, you're here now. What did she want to talk to you about?"Khh...talking like nothing's wrong..." Pinky tears out another blackened Soul Gem from another severed head, this time popping the entire thing in her mouth and crunching down HARD. [2/3]
>>29799193Bits of Soul Gem fly out from her mouth, some of them cutting into her lips and causing blood to trickle down the corners of her frown. "You know, that's what really turned me on about you, Homura-chan. The way you can act cool like that? But it's not working now." A moment. "Well....n-not as much, anyway.". . ."I was gonna warn you not to use the Desert Eagle I gave you that one time, okay?!" Crunch, crunch. "Whatever you do, don't use it anymore! And don't try to talk to whoever's inside it, either! They're just going to lie to you a whole lot!"How do you react?...I already did. Sorry. Where did you get all these Soulgems? Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?
>>29799205I already did. They told me to kill you, so I laughed at themIt may gain us a few hundred pinky points
>>29799205[X] Where did you get all these Soulgems?Well, I'm not sure telling Pinky that we already did is a good idea. I sure wonder where did she get all those soul gems though!
>>29799205>[x] Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?Puns. Plus someone mentioned about not playing our hand.
>>29799205>[x] Where did you get all these Soulgems?>[x] Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?
>>29799205> Where did you get all these Soulgems?
>>29799205>[X] Where did you get all these Soulgems?Let's not make any promises, now, or anger her more
>>29799205>I already did. I... I'm sorry. But it doesn't matter, because I'm not going to listen to them. I'm not going to kill you.>I love you.
>>29799205[x] Didn't she make the Golden Weapons? Who's in there anyway? The other weapons seem to have previous owners, but the Deagle feels like it's been yours all along.No hand-tipping please!
>>29799205>[x]...I already did. Sorry."But if it makes you feel any better, I'm not using it right now, and I don't plan on killing you."
>>29799205...I already did. Sorry.NO!Don't tell pinky we used the Desert Eagle. um... Well I am sure that if we ask about the Soulgems we will just hear something like "They were offerings Homura-chan"[x] Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?
>>29799205"I feel like we spend too much time talking about me. What about you? What's your end game? I mean after you make me feel ultimate despair and devour me, of course."
>>29799205>[x] Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?Give her headpats.Pinky needs some loving.
>>29799205> Where did you get all these Soulgems?> Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?
>>29799205>[X] Where did you get all these Soulgems?Well, WE already know, but Chiaki doesn't yet. FORESHADOWING!
>>29799205>[x] Where did you get all these Soulgems?looks like she doesn't know we already did. Might be a god idea to keep it that way.
>>29799205>[X]...I already did."There's no-one in there.Or at least, not the no-one you're hiding from."
>>29799205[X] Where did you get all these Soulgems?
>>29799284I dare to say we might even go for a hug.
Guh. Awake and livedrawing!twitch tv/elbowlick
>>29799262>pictrippy as fuck
>>29799327Could we get this image?>>29797432>One of the pictures, grainy as they are, also managed to capture a particularly heavily-armored individual standing on top of one of the struts, balanced precariously there, and flipping the camera off. You can't make out just who it is - its armor covering it from head to toe - but the confident stance and slight build gives away the fact that it is, in fact, a Magical Girl. Just one wearing some fancy type of full-body armor suit.
>>29799284[x] Do it
>>29799227And a hug afterwards. Either we get +1000 pinkyscore, or get her to become more awkward than deepthroat. Win/Win.
>>29799205I'm running out of banners.
>>29799283[X] This, with headpats. Ask where she gets the Soul Gems and if you're still on Time Out.
>>29799417Marar? Midori? Saya/kyoko?
>>29799417Quick, scour the archives, nyzzz.
>>29799434I meant I'm running out of relevant banners.
>>29799227>>29799376>>29799402NO!There are a few things that we need to keep from pinky. Like malal's real identity.
>>29799205[X] "Pinky, ain't nobody told me a lick of truth since day one.Why would one more liar make a difference?"
>>29799443They always like Midori, post some Midori.
>>29799439Not him, but this is your job, stupid cat
>>29799460He beat me to it!
>>29799205>[x] Fine, whatever. Can I use my Shield again, or am I still on Time Out?and there's a lot of dildos down their I need to vent my paperwork induced frustration on
>>29799470No, you're just a lazy feline. Go get a caffeine shot and also, you haven't updated your twitter in like a month. Are you likely to give out many more character profiles?
>>29799504>Are you likely to give out many more character profiles?Idol porn is fine too.
>>29799504People beating me to posting banners doesn't make me lazy...! It would have been up but for some reason the one I was trying to use was already in use in another thread. (The Pinky joke banner and some King of Fighters quest I guess?)Also yes, eventually.
>>29799504If we meet new characters maybe, if we keep wasting time with old ones? Not ap much
>>29799529Tell those dildos to get their own banners
Wake up and UroDecu is running MGNQ?The most exciting time of day has finally arrived!
>>29799529Off the top of your head, how big is the cast, currently? I've been meaning to archive binge, since I've missed half the write ups over the last two months. Have we broken 200 characters, do you think? That's my current estimate
>>29799529The pinky one I posted actually said it was corrupted the first time I tried to post it.
>>29799551Nowhere near50 maybe? No more than 80 named
I just realized something: we're in Homucifer's world. There are no Wraiths, and for all the talk about Witches we haven't seen a girl turn. Decu said there's something fishy about Grief Seed production. Pinky is eating the Gems of girls she would save as Madokami, and the Golden Weapons seem to prevent Witchouts.Homucifer done fucked up real bad. We need to off her and protect Pinky. Pink's still the Law of Cycles, just a super fucked up version.
>>29799551According to my art folder which also has conceptual characters/characters that haven't appeared yet, we're at around 40-50 total that have appeared/were named in some way. Counting the writeup characters that haven't appeared in the main quest we're approaching probably 60-70.There are 32 separate characters that profiles have been done for, with some snapshots of a few characters (mostly Wendy and Malal) in different periods, too.
>>29799550>UroDecuDecu has been busy getting HUGE over last couple weeks, now he just needs to perfect his posing and he can ascent to Joculture Jorobuchi.
>>29799569W/ write ups and minor characters, we have over 150 I'd say. I'm counting ones like enemy magical girls with unique weapons and such
>>29799586>conceptual characters/characters that haven't appeared yetHow were you so blessed?
>>29799580>we haven't seen a girl turn.Kharn (twice) in flashbacks.Mirai & Chiaki during interrogation in Siberia.Whole squad about to witch-out at the stadium.
>>29799610This is one of those questions that you'll be happier if you don't know the answer to.
>>29799692Thank you, Dan. You make my morning complete
>>29799597Nope, nowhere near>>29799586As the cat says
>>29799692>Pinky>Wearing white pantiesHmmm...'As if' or 'of course' I wonder...
>>29799692Even if there is no Hat-chan or Midori, there is Dan Kim.Won't you believe in him?>captcha: HOPE atabyan
Time for Best Girl! Awww yisss. >>29799636They weren't about to witch out, they were about to suicide bomb like Kyoko did to Oktavia.
>>29799692dying over here,send help
>>29799636We haven't seen Kharn's Witch, we just know she's a weird chimaera and goes kill-crazy. Mirai didn't have one even though she freaked, Chiaki had a barrier but only Homus were in it, and the cultists were going to go Suicide Bomber, not Witch.
>>29799789IIRC, Mirai didn't actually witch. It was Chiaki. Everyone was just caught up in it because FUCKHUGE and painfully complicated overlapping BARRIER. As befits a Homu.Mirai was in pretty bad shape though, since when she got dragged into the barrier she was already just a Soul Gem.
>>29799789Mirai did have a witch, but we didn't get a detailed description of it. Just saw the long pointed teeth before it got to Chiaki, who in turn witches out and created her own barrier.
>>29799233 >>29799234 >>29799254...Fine. Whatever. You're not going to promise that you won't ever use it - it is pretty nice to shoot and everything - but you won't talk to whoever's inside of it. Or believe their lies. Can you use your Shield again, now, or are you still fucked in that regard?Pinky narrows her eyes at you as she continues to grind and crunch the Soul Gem she's eating into fine powder. Her own blood, a cancerous, clotting black, dripping down onto her immaculate pink stewardess costume, blotting on the once-pristine cloth. "Maaaaybe. You promised that way too quick, Homura-chan, and honestly, I'm not sure if I can trust you that easily now. I mean, you did break Wendy-chan's heart, after you promised her and everything." It's here that Pinky sniffs dramatically. "How could my pure, sweet and gentle Homura-chan become such a heartbreaker? Oh, the horror! The tragedy!" She turns to the side to spit what looks like the brass gilding of the soul gem she'd just eaten, but bent and chewed up and stringed with blood and saliva. The pink-haired demon then rummages on the pile of heads on her trolley, pulling out a very young-looking magical girl's still-screaming head by its ponytail and tearing out the soul gem stuffed into its mouth. Another wince-inducing crunch, and the muffled, incoherent screaming immediately cuts off. "Nnngh, all this stress you're giving me is gonna make me faaaat, Homura-chan! How will I ever fit into my dress for our wedding? This is all your fault!". . . "Anyway, you'll be able to use your Shield again, but only on a trial basis this time, just to make sure you're still loyal to me an' everything." Pinky grins at you before swallowing. "Let's set the limit at....two! Two Time Stops! Ah ah ah ah!" Thunder suddenly booms from somewhere, along with the brief strobe-light effect of lightning. "After you use up those two, you won't be able to time stop anymore unless I visit again!"[1/2]
>>29799789>We haven't seen Kharn's WitchWe haven't seen it ourselves, but Murderface did, as did the rest of the Officio, as we've been told. She did Witch out, and the procedure that she underwent to get the Witch-flesh grafted to her is slowly spreading to the rest of her body despite attempts to keep her Soul Gem clean.
>>29799859Well. That's...better than nothing, you suppose. At least it's not going to be some sort of useless disc clamped on your arm that you can't even block shit with.So fine. Not all that happy with it, but...at least you can stop the really ugly crap from happening if they do. Where did Pinky get all these soulgems she's snacking on, anyway? "Wendy, of course! At least SHE knows how to be grateful, and to be a nice person!" Pinky sticks out her tongue at you. "But not all of these are from her, though. I got the others from the girls who really, really like me." It's here that she grins, a secret, almost sly grin. "Better watch out, Homura-chan, or they might just steal me away! And then you won't have me to look after you anymore, only that...that broccolihead fatty that you're so protective of!"...Well, that's a bit unfair. Midori really isn't that fat."Wake up, Homura-chan! What do you think those huge, bouncy things on her chest are, muscle?" Pinky spits at you. "Honestly! They're so violent and vulgar, they probably explode out of her bra whenever she runs! And don't get me started on her butt, and--"It's here that the goddess stops as she sees just who you're with."...Wah. Sayaka-chan and Kyoko-chan...? I..." Something comes over the crazed eldritchian nightmare, here, something that suddenly turns her black eyes into something approximating warm amber. "...It's been a while since I saw them together like this...w-when was it, Homura-chan? Which loop was it?" She turns towards you, before scoffing. "Eh, you wouldn't know, would you? You never really cared about them at all. Not really."She steps forward, away from her trolley, stopping in front of Sayaka and...giving her a hug. "Sayaka-chan, you stupid idiot. Why don't you just turn into a fish right now, and save Kyoko the heartbreak, huh? So she'll just kill herself instead of turning into that strange candle-headed thing..."How do you react?
>>29799879"What's this about her being a fish?"Do NOT mention that Risa told us about it.
>>29799879[x] "Sayaka is my equerry, and Kyouko is like my best friend here. I won't let something like that happen to them. And Midori has exactly the right amount of butt."
>>29799879"What are you talking about? What's going to happen to them?"
>>29799879"What kind of fish?"
>>29799879[x] So, how do you know Sayaka? You two go way back or something?
>>29799914This sounds good.
>>29799879"They won't be turning into witches or dying at all, if I can help it. Not after all the headaches I went through to get on decent terms finally."
>>29799879>[x] fish? candle? huh? what? what's going to happen to them?ARGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH away! get away from them you pink monster!!!!!
>>29799879"Why do you care what happens to them?"
>>29799879>hair flip"That won't be necessary."
>>29799879Don't wanna know, I just want them to be happy. Don't you?Will you protect this smile?
>>29799879"The hell are you talking about`"
>>29799879[x] "Fish? You meant Witch, right, because that's how that sounds. Anyway, they're my friends. And whatever my failings, I'm going to try real hard so that my friends don't Witch out."Telling her that we won't talk with the souls inside the DEagle was pretty much a lie, so we definitely won't be getting any additional trust from Pinky. We'll probably lose the Time Stop again when she finds out.
>>29799879"Fish?" See how much info we can get out of her, e.g. what happens to Sayaka and when.
>>29799945Trying to make Pinky wet?
>>29799879[x]"Leave them out of it. I am the one you are after. No reason to get anyone involved, not them, not the girls in the trolley, no one."
>>29799879>How do you react?Grope her butt while she's facing the two. Pause to ponder for a bit, then give her your judgement:"Nope, not getting fat, it's about perfect like this."
>>29799879[x]"I suppose you've seen everyone turn into a witch at least once."
>>29799945I really like this. We should include it in our reply.
>>29799879>turn into a fish right now, and save Kyoko the heartbreakNTR? NTR.
>>29799977This is the saddest fucking thing I've ever seen. Why did you do this. WHY
>>29799879[x] Fish? candle? what are you talking about?
>>29800021Because the sad's must be felt.
>>29799879[X] "I don't remember."
>>29800037Chiaki and waffles
>>29800063Collect them all!
>>29800075Who is that one?
>>29800091Who do nyah think?
>>29800021Because that's what happens when we screw up.
>>29800091Nyan nyan NECO nyan.
>>29799879[X] All doom, all gloom, all the time, from everyone. Those two are my friends, and from the way you talk about them, your friends too. The world hasn't ended yet, so there's still time to do what we want to do, so tell me, would you want to see them again? Talk to them again? Try to do something in the time we have?
>>29800047"Not the previous loops. not them. Nothing.How did it get this messed up? Help me understand?"It's hard to care overly about the Meguca's on the cart. We're about to go on a murder spree of our own, after all.
>>29800138Not enough HEALTHY dan. Needs more HEALTH and HEALTH foods
>>29800224I'll make a Pink vs Green squish-off pic at some point.
>>29800254But if Pinky is Madoka, then Midori would win by default!Now if it was a butt-off, then Midori might have some problems.
>>29800138I dunno, looks pretty healthy to me.But yeah, might need a more thorough examination and comparison...just to be fair...
>>29800254 Hnnng yes
>>29800254>The true watermelon
>>29800321Also Wendy is between them to act as an impartial judge.
>>29800283>sexualizing MadokaYou really shouldn't be doing this unless you are Homura.Oh, wait, we are.
>>29800354Then what are we waiting for? [x] *flick hair* don't know what this fish thing is, but these two are my best friends. Nothing will happen to them. -[x] Use the moment of distraction to grope Pinky's butt
Alright, pausing thread for now! Thread to resume tomorrow night, same time! Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is always encouraged! If there's anyone who wants to post a writeup, please do so now (but if someone starts before you, let them finish first)! Otherwise, questions answered before I go to bed!
>>29800393How aware of the looping nature of the last ten thousand months is pinky?
The announcement was delivered as a notice taped on the inside of my door. It said that I have to take my things out of the broom closet by next Thursday, and move them to my new office. I have been here three months, enduring nightmares thick with the smell of turpentine, but better late than never. Behind a wooden door with the nameplate "Eleanor A. Slam", no title, is where I get to work for the rest of my life. When I walk into the room, the door shuts itself behind me. No distractions allowed, after all.I guess it's not a bad little office - it's mostly bare, needs some personal touches - and few in the Sixth can boast that they have their own. That's normally reserved for the people at the very top. So it means that they care about my wellbeing; but they don't care enough to end this torment. After all, the Sixth doesn't want its precious eversors wasting time writing that could be spent training. No, that is almost entirely my job, because I'm their special Vanus.I examine the windows and see they decided to add bars to them. They're not taking any chances this time, after hearing what I tried back at the Eighth. I bet they reinforced the glass, too. Well, at least it should keep the drop bears out. Not that I can see much through the frosted glass.I stomp back to my shiny little black swivel chair and spin around slowly. Remembering what the Incubator said about how to relax myself, I try those breathing exercises and reassure myself that things aren't so bad. I could be homeless. I could be chained up. I could be dea-Well, that might be an improvement.Sigh. I never wished for this.[1/5]
>>29800393So, how badly will Pinky react when we go back on what we said and talk with the other Homura's in the DEagle?Does Chiaki remember anything at all about PMC anti-magic equipment? Can we ask Misaka to get ahold of some for us?
>>29800427There's a knock on the door and I compose myself before speaking. "Come in."Some girl whose name I can't be bothered to learn opens the door and wheels in the first gurney of the day, covered in boxes of varying sizes. She tells me the usual spiel : take a box, fill out the forms inside, then put them back in the box they came in. Lunch break isn't until all these papers are filled out. Start on the second set afterwards before you go home."Understood."She does a little curtsey before leaving me alone with my hated nemesis. I take a long hard look at a box containing financial records and order forms that need to be checked for errors. Maybe it won't be so bad this time. I lift up the box and upend its contents on my desk. And as soon as I lock eyes with them, it starts.I'm almost used to having little to no autonomous control of my body during my little "work trances". I clutch at the gem around my neck as my casual attire is replaced by my Official Magical Girl Costume, appearing with little fanfare or special effects. Well, maybe there's a subtle noise I can't hear, everything's kind of muffled during these states. It might some kind of crunching noise, since I look like a breakfast cereal mascot. Getting sick of being called Crunchberry.[2/5]
Pinky claims Chiaki/Homura is 2000 years old, but the people inside the gun claimed they had looped for 900 years. Whats up with that?
>>29800449I reach into my pockets and pull out an assortment of pens with one hand, the other grabbing a sheaf of papers without me even looking at it. And as I look it over, I can feel it. Unfamiliar thoughts pouring into my head like a raging typhoon, granting me the knowledge of what I need to do, without comprehension of any of the alien symbols written down. A mental cheat sheet that doesn't show its work. I whip my pen back and forth in neat little strokes, writing down words that mean nothing to me and crossing out parts that look identical to the others. Flip page, write write, flip page, write write. Put the pages aside and grab the next one. The Incubator was smart enough to leave holes in the boxes so that my trance state can see there is unfinished business. Put papers in the box, toss it to the side, grab another box and start all over, discard empty pens, acquire fresh pens. All in the span of a few minutes, but each stack of remaining boxes is about as tall as I am.Within the first hour my eyes are already watering from being unable to blink. I can see little halos of light around the black ink on the page, not that I can tell them where to look. I develop tunnel vision, there's only the task in front of me. My wrist begins to ache dully in protest of this treatment. And as time drags on, I begin to lose my sense of self.Each new page means another memory pushed aside, filled in with incomprehensible knowledge. With only the scratching of the pen, the buzzing in my head, and the boiling corruption as ambience, I struggle to remember why I'm here, what I'm doing, who I am, as the maelstrom of eldritch knowledge tears through my head. Rending such useless thoughts until only a pristine, perfect worker is left behind. There's some kind of repeated sound in the background, but I can't even identify it.At some point, I lose all awareness of anything but the words, words I only know I must write down. At least I can't comprehend pain.[3/5]
>>29800479As soon as the last box is packed up, I start to regain cognizance of my surroundings. I can hear a crackling noise in my head as my memory gradually returns. It's a bit disconcerting to remember who you are in bits and pieces that aren't even in order. And I become aware of how much I ache from keeping my posture.I bite back the urge to scream; it never helped before and it won't help now. Just... Breathe. I take a good look at my soul gem and retrieve the last grief seed I was allotted. A little tap, and the darkness flows out of the jewel as it returns to its immaculate blue color. How long was it this time? The caged wall clock has its hands at quarter to twelve, which is faster than what it used to be; I bet the Incubator will try to compensate for it later. Good news is the pain hurts a little less now, so I think I can manage to haul everything back. It'd be nice if somebody else was here to do the heavy lifting, though. I'd like to be able to eat now rather than later.As I shake my head, my peripheral vision picks up something in the window. I try to look at it, but it's hard to make out. Some kind of reddish thing is hurtling towards the window. Looks like a person. Must be one of those assholes from the other day trying to get to me again. Heh. Like to see them try to break through magical girl-proofed windows. I recline back in my chair to take in the spectacle, glad to have a distraction.[4/5]
>>29800469Wasn't 900 years a conservative estimate an anon came up with? I thought they only told us approximately how many times we've looped.
>>29800469They looped for ~900 years before losing their mind and then continued looping for XXXX years after that.
>>29800469There's at least one, possibly more, Homu missing.Not unprecedented though, what with Faust/Madoka soul-splitting shennanagins.
>>29800500"RRRROARING WINDOW BREAKERRRRRRRR!!" it roars out as its cry of battle, a shrill voice definitely belonging to a magical girl. And I watch as that somebody kicks through magical girl-proofed windows and scatters glass and twisted metal everywhere. I'm barely aware of something silvery swinging in the breeze outside, as they crash right into the boxes and bury themselves beneath them. The work of an entire morning of suffering, ruined by some asshole. Well it serves her right.Said boxes are thrown back with great force as this intruder stands to her feet. I realize I'm sitting here with my jaw open as I try to take in this figure. She's wearing some kind of maroon long coat over a frilly pink dress. She also has a hat, with a little lacy flower decoration... thing. Is that a pirate hat? It's a goddamn pirate hat. She's dusting herself off like nothing happened and she's dressed like a pirate, what the hell. Have I gone completely mad?Judging by her hairstyle, I'd guess she's a foreigner as well. That would explain some things.Still, what the hell?"Oh, yeeeeeeeeaah!! It's Crunch time!" she calls out triumphantly, punching at the air, before turning to look at me.Oh man. I really, really, really don't like the way she's looking at me right now...[5/5]
>>29800393Do you think that love can bloom, even on a battlefield?
>>29800518Nice one! Welcome to the jam, Slam!
>>29800518Yep, welcome into the fold of writefags. We're all out of champagne and cake, sadly, or I'd throw a party.
>>29800393Thank you for the thread! It's good to have Pinky back~
>>29800518Cool idea. I was initially really thrown off by the way you do first-person narration, but it was enjoyable in the end.
>>29800518glory to arstotzka
>>29800595>>29800630>>29800658>>29800660Thank you for the kind words. I was REALLY nervous when I posted this, so I'm glad it went over well enough.Now I must go pass out. Thanks for running, Decu.
>>29800407Very aware! One of the reasons she became Pinky in the first place!>>29800432Hahaha, well, pretty bad!She'll remember when she sees them in action. As for Misaka, you can definitely ask her to procure some models of your own!>>29800469That was only until they broke!>>29800563Definitely a possibility!
>>29800717>Hahaha, well, pretty bad!Then why did we say we would do a thing we have no intention of doing to a psychotic yandere goddess? Are we really just that stupid?
>>29800717So, they lost count and broke at around 900 and kept going until 2000? Dammit, Homura...
>>29800693We all are, on our first time. It gets easier as you do it more and more~
>>29800717If a girl wished to be a boy, would they still be a magical girl?
>>29800757Well, I see it as Chiaki being a bit bolder with Pinky. As long as you're not caught, she won't know!
>>29800783If some of us can actually sit down and get stuff written. Kind of sucks having ideas but no motivation to put them down.
>>29800802Huh!That's...that's a really good question!I suppose when they're transformed, they turn back into a Magical Girl.
>>29800841So like Princess Waltz, then?
>>29800841What about the opposite? If an incubator found a boy who wished to be a girl?Do I smell an untapped market?!
>>29800841What class would that wish be suited towards?
>>29800393Did the miko girl return yet?
>>29800823For me, it's helped that I accidentally wrote myself into a position that I can't write any more Saga of the Sixteenth until after Big Shell is over. I've got a massive buildup of ideas now.
Okay, made a bit more progress on this. Guess I can go do other stuff now...

Seeing as she can see around us and maybe the inside of a Silent Room is the only place we can be safe from her gaze.Though I suspect that most other players haven't noticed the lie we told Pinky, or the measures we have to take now to keep our Homu-conversations hidden from Pinky and anyone who might talk to her about it.They'll just blunder into letting Pinky find out, and we'll be out of Time Stop again, if not worse.And make the watermelon end even less likely.
