"Still the same," Mami murmurs, shaking her head. "Lucius in particular's proven obstinate no matter what I do. It even got to a point where...well..." The blonde seems to hesitate here, before shaking her head, her right hand reaching down to massage the wrist of her left. "...I won't bore you with the details, Chiaki-san, but whatever the Prophet's done or said to them, it's certainly hardened them enough that our usual methods - and some of mine - aren't working at all."Hnh. That so? What about Meteor Hammer Cunt, then? You jerk your chin towards the shivering girl cocooned in blankets."Her name is Ishimura Kana, Chiaki-san," Mami chides you gently, her brow furrowing. "I'm...well, I'm still working on her. She's the most receptive of the group, though, and I've been able to get her to trust me so far." It's here that her voice lowers to barely a whisper. "If you give me a few more days with her, perhaps a week, Chiaki-san...I think I can get everything we need to know about this Prophet."It's here that she looks at you, her warm honey-colored eyes staring into yours. "Of course, I'll step aside if my Warmaster has other ideas." She smiles here, a patient, saintly smile that wouldn't have been out of place beaming from the face of winged, angelic divinity.
>>30869118"As for the ceremonies..." The blonde falls silent for a moment, deep in thought. "Well, just be presentable and solemn, Chiaki-san. You don't need me to write a speech for you or anything, just make sure you say what's proper for the occasion." She giggles. "They know how Chiaki-san talks, anyway, and you suddenly busting out with a speech that someone else wrote would sound really fake." Another giggle, before she blinks, as if remembering something. "Oh! And be sure to think up of a proper squad name, if they ask you to provide one." It's here that her smile becomes a bit strained. "Just try not to be too creative, alright, Chiaki-san? It's the squad name they'll be using for the rest of their careers."Ah. You'll...remember that, yeah. The bit about the squad names.Mami nods here, smiling brightly again. "Well...getting back to Kana-san, here..." She gestures briefly at the now-sleeping girl behind her. "How do you want me to proceed with her, Warmaster? As well as the rest of the prisoners?"How do you respond?Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.You'll take it over from here. Your method's messier and certainly less fluffier, but you know it works. Sometimes.
>>30869129>Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.>Just give them a grim reminder of how lucky they are and how much you'd like to blow them up.
>>30869129>[x]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.Ask when we can have our own session
>>30869129Have Mami keep working on Kana. If she's confident she can provide the necessary information, we don't need the other prisoners. Get them all together, except Kana, and start killing them one by one until someone starts talking.
>>30869129>[X]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.
>>30869129[X]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.at least on Kana, maybe tell them that its either Mami's treatment or Chiaki's.>What did Lucius do?
>>30869129[X]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.
>>30869129>Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.I am not keen to repeat the experience of last interrogation.
>>30869129[X] Leave it to Mami, if regular methods aren't working then Murderface methods won't. The only reason that Mami has gotten so far is probably because she took Kana by surprise
Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDblink to the Fanart gallery: http://wiki.magicalgirlnoir.com/index.php/Fanart>>30869129Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.Mami at least has a viable method to gain information, unlike Chiaki so long as we control her.
>>30869129>[x]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.seeing how our prisoner is a sobbing wreck instead of spewing hate, what Mami is doing seems to be working.
>>30869129>[x]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.Let's not embarass ourselves further...
>>30869129>>[X]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.If we try to beat information out of her, we'll get nothing, and it will undo the progress Mami has made with her.
>>30869129[X] Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.
>>30869129" I would like to see them. If nothing else I think I should do that much. Lucy in particular. I want to see her face to face."
>>30869129>[x]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her."Let me know if you need help with Lucius. I've been looking for a new whiskey stone."
>>30869151While cathartic, I'm not sure that 'tell me what you know or I'll kill you' is going to work on a bunch of suicide sparklies.
[X]Let Mami deal with it. She knows what she's doing, and you trust her.She's way more experienced than us (As far as I know) when it comes to interrogations, and if i recall, she does get results from it, so let her deal with it
>>30869186Yeah, blundering in here would probably be a mistake.Give us one of the recalcitrant ones. No great loss.
>>30869228So we'll kill them off. No problem, they need to be dead and if Mami can get all the information we need from Kana, there's no point in keeping them alive anyway.Goddamn it I just want to be proper Murderface for once.
>>30869151Seconding this. Also, after you have them revived, remind them you an KEEP DOING THIS for as long as it takes. We have a brand new squad of vindicare who need practice. Though, if worse comes to worse....we could always show them the Blessed Goddess they're serving. I like that idea for Lucious. She should meet Pinky PERSONALLY. We could even give Pinky her soulgem.
>>30869228Yeah. They have been brainwashed into believing Chiaki is an evil emissary of Pinky. Mamis approach probably works because its exactly opposite to what they were told to expect.Starting to kill/torture them would just convince them they were right all along and strenghten their resolve.
>>30869151I would not be opposed.
>>30869252They don't serve the blessed lady. That's the cult Wendy is in.
>>30869233Sorry to use your post as a springboard but fuck, is anyone else really creeped out by the blond bithc right now? Seriously Mami is kinda weirding me out.
>>30869228Suicide sparklies that get revived and killed again suddenly realize that they don't get the you're dead" escape they were promised.
>>30869129[x]Other.[x]Just talk to Kana. Between Interogation and Torture why dont we just talk to them. We should just point out inconsistencies about the Prophet how she has a golden weapon of her own, who it belonged to, who the Prohpet ist and how she is using them all just to get to us.Doubt is a more persuasive than torture will ever be.
>>30869261Church, -church- Wendy is in!Also this is standard Mumi procedure and is surely nothing to be afraid of.
>>30869252No. This group is anti-pinky/anti-blessed lady. They actually think WE are serving Pinky. When we used Golden Weapons, they started ranting crazily about how we are corrupt and evil and use pinkys weapons.We would actually get best results if we act contrary to what they have been told and are anti-pinky ourself. Though probably would not work on Lucious, but on her followers it might.
>>30869264That's her power. Sallayka heals, Red burns, Midori is luff, and Mami is terribly, terribly kind. Emphasis on terror.
>>30869275I vote to stay the fuck away from Kana until Mami has turned her properly. I don't want us to accidentally undo the work she's done with her.Now Lucius, on the other hand, I WOULD like to have a chat with.
>>30869264Creeped out? No.Aroused? Very.
>>30869283We don't want ANYONE knowing that we're working against Pinky. Too many ways it could get back to her (which is inevitable, but still).
>>30869264>the blond bitchwow die
>>30869196We embarassed ourselves because edgetarts well hellbent on acting like this badass dangerous warmaster instead of using our brain. Indimidation doest work on someone who doesnt reat your seriously, losing your cool and threats of violence then just show easy it is for opponent to gain control over the conversation.
[X] Have Mami keep doing what she's doing with Kana. No need to undo her work. The others I think we ought to pay them a visit and rough them up some. Soul gem Russian roulette was mentioned when dealing with the 16th, maybe it might get us a little something here?
>>30869318I'd say we embarrassed ourselves because we tried to give her a speech and guilt trip her instead of just scaring her senseless like we planned.
>>30869305It's a shame we don't have four devas who will help us with our eventual betrayal.
>>30869310Yeah. It's not like she has a track record of fucking everything up and getting everyone else killed.
>>30869264Mami's power is Gun Fu, and Friendship for Everyone.You can't be 'Adorable' without being 'Adored'. That's the thing, right there. Mami makes everyone 'Adore' here, whether they want to or not. That's why she was in charge of Girl-A, yo. Make Girl-A love someone, and hate to disappoint them, then have that person set boundaries and rules, backed by a give concrete *physical* sign of your approval for actions well done (Pamcakes).You've all been brainwashed by Mami. Accept it. You know it to be true. I still like her better than Midori.
>>30869310One of us, one of us! Te heee tee.
>>30869344fortunately we're a party unto ourselves
>>30869358What's wrong with being brainwashed to love Mami?! These chains make us happy!
>>30869348mami is perfect
>>30869376Mami a bigger shit than Sayaka.
>>30869384name one thing mami did wrong that isn't justified
Best time of day etc.
>>30869332>I'd say>scaring her senseless like we planned.No, you are just an idiot. >"Oh hey intimidating her didnt work, lets try to scare her more!"You sound like the retard who kills the prisoner after he failed to get out useful information out of someone and wants to off someone due to his own incompetence. Please commit Sudoku.
>>30869318In the immortal words of Dr. Spenler: That would have worked if you hadn't stopped me.
>>30869402Oh, right, since I'm usually at work I keep forgetting to post this
>>30869376Everyone loves Mami, even if they don't want to admit it.
>>30869416justified, she's preventing witches
>>30869393Get her head bitten off?
>>30869412>Didnt work>We just have to try harder instead of trying a different approachI guess I will never understand stupid people.
>>30869429And that one time she's so busy showing off like a cunt that she gets her head bitten off.
how on earth does >>30869411 keep getting idiots to bite?
>>30869411Wow, that got really personal for you really fast, huh? I'm just pointing out the plan we used and the plan that failed. Also if you think just laying out that there is a gun in the room without showing intent to use it is intimidating, I want to live in your adorable world.
>>30869416To be fair, thats canon!Mami that had a nervous breakdown. In this quest, she already knows about the witch thing and QB apparently has a good mental health department.The only screwup that really comes to mind in-quest is telling Kirika about her planned retirement. But while stupid, even that could be justified in that Mami apparently did not know that Kirika had been driven mad by the GW.
>There are people in this Thread who dont like MGNQs evil Meguca Jesus
>>30869435>>30869442justified, it was a mistake but she was fighting with happiness for the first time
>>30869449Well if we're talking quest Mami then she's an even bigger shit than Sayaka. At least Sayaka doesn't get all prissy when we kill the person who tried to murder her.
>>30869446>I want to live in your adorable world.No thanks, I despise edgy 16yr olds, please stay the fuck away from my world.
>"They know how Chiaki-san talks, anyway, and you suddenly busting out with a speech that someone else wrote would sound really fake."Sometimes (re : most of the time with Chiaki) less is more.
>>30869453She did come back to life after 9 episodes.That makes her at least three times as good as Jesus if my math is correct.
>>30869470Okay, everyone in it seems to be really mad anyway. Chill out, man.
Mami specifically told us that the 9th's usual methods weren't working. What exact point is there to shooting and torturing these people, if not to stroke your weird little murder egos?What happened recently that caused all these edgelords to start coming out of the woodwork, here?
>>30869445>Implying I´m a troll>Implying I´m the same guy as the PalafagSo you are edgy AND stupid?
>>30869487The last mission? Last mission was pretty edgy even if we didn't kill anybody.
>>30869473We should probably just shout a bunch of stuff with pancakes in our mouth and let them decide what sort of profound speech we gave afterwards
>>30869487I always put it down to people confusing noir with grimdark.
>>30869493I... I want to do this. What foul magic have you cast over me that would make me want to do such a terrible thing?
>>30869496To be fair, there's a lot of warhammer references in this quest, so the line kind of blurs for people familiar with it.
>>30869487Weren't you paying attention? Apparently we don't USE the ninth's usual methods anymore. We just start blubbing and wait for them to confess their sins out of sheer embarrassment.
>>30869496The noir (which it hasn't been from thread 2) is the least grimdark part of this quest. Between all the Madoka and WH40k, the grimdark is well covered.
>>30869498I only made you see your heart's desire. Nothing more.
>>30869487>>30869491Both of these. I dont know when all the edgetarts started following this quest but all those people assuimg that noir means we need to murderhobo everything are truly annoying. How the fuck does one follow MGNQ and be not aware that Chiaki tries hard to not be murderface anymore?MURDERFACE IS A BAD THING. WE DO NOT WANT TO BE MURDERFACE AGAIN.
>>30869538"TELL ME YOUR SECRETS CHIAKIS ASS""chiaki lieks butts"
>>30869538Chiaki isn't the only one with buttlust, it seems.
>>30869538"Tell me yer shecretsh, Shempai's butt~"
>>30869499>I dont like his opinion, quick lets claim its bait!You sure showed me.
>>30869522>>30869496I always think of detectives when I think noir, so it doesn't feel like the noir I'm familiar with.Magical detective adventures when
>>30869538The truth is Chiaki kinda wants this.Just... maybe not in the middle of the remeberance ceremony.
>>30869562I've always boiled it down to an asshole doing the right thing in a difficult situation.
>>30869562Oh, we're pretty detectivey when you get right down to it.It doesn't get more more "noir-ey" than following a breadcrumb trail of clues laid down for you a dead woman.
>>30869584>doing the right thingWell, that's debateable. Sometimes it's just an asshole getting results that look vaguely like justice in a world where there is none.The means to achieve this may, or may not, be "right".
>>30869599I guess I should have said trying to do the right thing or something like it.
>>30869562If NECO ever follows through on MAGICAL GIRL NYAA QUEST, I want it to be detective noir.
>>30869621Would like this.
>>30869584>>30869599>doing the right thingBut thats a pretty good definition. Noir revolves about a protag that is very flawed and does some morally questionable things while trying to do the right thing in a world that is depicted as inherrently corrupt. Often the Protag is flawed or his moral ambiguity is established due to how he tried to do the right thing in the past and how it alienated him because the the world shat on him.
>>30869145 >>30869147 >>30869152 >>30869169You decide to let Mami deal with Kana and the rest of the prisoners. She seems to know what she's doing, and you trust her enough to do the right thing. She didn't even need to ask, really.Although...you'd like to meet Lucius personally yourself. Not to interrogate her or anything, but just to meet her, face to face. You should do that much at least, since...well, she HAD been doing her best to kill you back at the stadium. Maybe she'd let something that you can use slip if you tried talking to her.Mami seems to consider this, before nodding. "I...hmm. I suppose that's worth a shot, Chiaki-san. You were her main objective, as far as I can guess, and she was ready to sacrifice her entire team just to kill you. That kind of dedication..." She shakes her head, her soft yellow curls bouncing with her movement. "...If only she didn't get mixed up in this Prophet business, she'd have made a great Rank Leader." Mami taps a perfectly-manicured finger on her chin, before turning her wrist to glance at her watch. "I can have Housekeeping get her ready and cleaned up for an interview right now, if you'd like. She'll be ready by the time we get there, and I'll just make sure we end it well before the certification ceremony."Another smile. "Unless Chiaki-san has something else she needs to attend to? Lucius isn't going anywhere, and neither is her squad."How do you reply?Have your interview with Lucius now.Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.
>>30869656Which sums this quest up pretty well most of the time.
>>30869670[X]Have your interview with Lucius now.
>>30869670>[x]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.We should see Midori.
>>30869670[X] Have your interview with Lucius now.We went here to try and get info out of Lucius and her Squad so we are going to do just that.
>>30869670>Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.
>>30869670[x]Some other time. That time being never.
>>30869670[x]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.It'd be good to get a dossier of the squad we're promoting so we know what kind of name to give them.Also to send apologies to Noriko
>>30869656>>30869674Yes and it also shows how we should NOT go murderhobo and how Murderface is bad news. Lets face it, the most shitstorms in this quest so far were related to edgefags voting for retarded shit.
>>30869670>[X]Some other timeShe'll be a tough nut to crack. We'll need a plan first.
>>30869621I'm not sure I could keep up that style for long enough.Karasawa wrinkled her nose at the photographs scattered across my desk. I called it my office. She called it my litter box. We were both right. She'd come here for a reason, but I wasn't going to get it from between her sweet, soft lips without an industrial winch or a few gallons of ice cream and a little wine on the side. She was a Rank Leader - real important, among the sparkles. Too big for a place like this. Almost too big for the door, too.
>>30869670>[X]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.
>>30869700Like I said earlier >>30869496 a lot of people just don't really grasp what noir is about.
>>30869670>[x]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.We have to name a squad and recharge green power
>>30869670>[X]Have your interview with Lucius now.Lets do this thing.
>>30869670[X]Some other time:We are in a silent room so talk to Braids and fix the screwup from earlier, since Pinky might not be watching (I hope).Then send apologies to Noriko.Finally check the squad details before the ceremony.
>>30869670[X]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.We also look like we've been on an op. that's not good interrogation technique.Unless you've just finished an interrogation.
>>30869704Oh god Im dying
>>30869704That right there? That's pure gold.
>>30869704I like it, though if you can't keep it up, that's fine.>Almost too big for the door, too.Poor girl will never get away from the fat jokes.
>>30869670>[x]Have your interview with Lucius now.We can check up on Kyoko or Midori whenever, now that we started seeing prisoners let's just get on with this.
>>30869670[X]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.I'm wondering how badly Lucius looks right now if she needs to get cleaned up first.I don't trust Mami all that much anymore>>30869704Don't bully the curvy pervy lady!
>>30869670[X]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.
>>30869670>[x]Have your interview with Lucius now.
>>30869746>I'm wondering how badly Lucius looks right now if she needs to get cleaned up first.>I don't trust Mami all that much anymoreLucius is covered in syrup
>>30869670>[X]Have your interview with Lucius now.Lets deal with now>>30869704Awesome
>>30869742It's probably, in all fairness, way easier to write if I don't have to make up a situation off the top of my head (so it'd work better in a quest format). Probably worth thinking about, nyahaha~
>>30869704DO IT FAGGOTCAT!
>>30869670>>[x]Have your interview with Lucius nowSome bitch is after our Mamis. We gotta get that information and settle this as soon as possible.
Someone asked for this a while back.
>>30869700>t also shows how we should NOT go murderhobo and how Murderface is bad news.>not understanding the difference between murderhobo and precisely and calculated applied violence.If we're not Murderface occasionally, this is gonna become Paperwork Dildo Quest real quick.
>>30869843Yeah but it should be done at appropriate times and not just because we have skull fucked something recently.
>>30869843We've touched three pieces of paperwork in over 150 threads. Decu sure is piling it on.
>>30869814Hat-chan, I can't even. See >>30869765
>>30869670[x]Some other time. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Tell Mami to arrange it some other day, though, when your schedule's not as full.[x]Midoritime[x]Take Midori with you to all the boring Warmaster-Stuff.
>>30869843There's a difference between tactical and Murderface.The former is expected of us. The latter is when she engages in excessive violence, far beyond what is necessary for victory.
>>30869872Which, lets be facing it, we've done never.
I honestly find MGNQ Mami pretty fucking terrifying.The power of flawlesly reading and manipulating people while staying on everyone's good side is something you don't want to go against.Also because I know person that operates kinda like that in real life, so it feels pretty damn real to me.
>Man some of the pacifags started getting real aggressive about it lately. I wonder if it's like, a thing with the tides.>Pacifist fags. They've started getting more and more aggressive in MGNQ threads about 'edgetarts' ruining everything.>They started chanting 'Being Murderface is bad, we're trying not to be Murderface anymore'. It'll bite them in the ass eventually.
>Green is the danger.It all makes sense now. Risa's pastebin talking about how she wanted to "save someone" all but confirmed that the plant is a thing.Plants = green. Green = danger. Plant = danger.Dangerplant.
>>30869883I wish I had someone like that in real life who would dominate me and make me into a better person
>>30869892Oh man I didn't think you guys would crack the code so quicklyoh man oh man oh man decu we gotta we gotta redo everything man
There is a huge stack of paperwork in front of you Collate File Collate THEN file File THEN collate Douse yourself in petrol, set yourself on fire and hurl yourself screaming through the nearest window
>>30869878Well, I can't quite recall if we've made a choice to go full on Murderface recently. But if we're talking about a perfect example of MF, that'd be the time Girl A murdered that Eversor squad back before she became Kharn's protege.
>>30869900YOU CAN'T HIDE WHAT'S INSIDE.OR BETWEEN THE TEMPORAL DIMENSIONS.I SEE THAT TOO.
>>30869883There was actually a message from Malal in-quest which confirmed that very fact. Mami is scary and wields incredible power everywhere. She even "corrupted" QB!Still, as the message from Malal said, so long as she is on our side, she is the best ally we could have.
>>30869906That wasn't a choice that was just part of the back story.
>>30869860??What about it?Also, an improved version because of a friend's careless comment
>>30869905Some missing information:1. Who are we?2. What is this paperwork for?3. How high up are we? Jumping out the window in flames would look a bit silly on the ground floor.
>>30869883yes, I think we should not trust her the way we do>>30869892It's green HAIR is danger so no
>>30869938We should ask Dildoes what she meant by that anyway.
>>30869938I think we just just like Mami-sama take care of everything for us. All we have to do is what she tells us, and maybe she'll let us wear a collar, too.
>>30869892I don't think you took this far enough.Plant isn't a noun in this case, it's a verb. The danger has been planted. Like a seed.Grief seed. We just recovered a witch core, which is like a super grief seed. Super dangerplant.It's the core of Sayaka's witch. Sayaka is blue. Blue is considered the same color as green in the Himba language, and it is pronounced as "buru", which sounds like a Japanese person trying to say "blue".Thus we establish that blue=green.SAYAKA IS THE DANGER! OH GOD WARN KYOKO!
>>30869938The green hair advice would have been useful if there weren't so many characters with green hair.Also I'm getting real tired of your unprinny like behavior. It seems like you need more training.
>>30869975Well, there's...what?Midori, Ruri, Yuma, and I think the one other chick in the Wendy sacrifice writeup?
>>30869922If I hug my laptop, the crack in the casing around the screen will spread and I'll have to get a new LCD or laptop.
>>30869984and the girl Kharn killed in her sub-quest and being dead is turning out to only be a minor inconvenience to a lot of people in the quest.
>>30869984Miss Marigold? I think she's a Yuuka expy.
>>30869993Apply pressure on the hinge, man.
>>30869975NOOOOplease have mercy dood!
>>30869975>>30869984I think that there's also Wendy's Eversor instructor. I vaguely recall her having green hair.
>>30869999And Miss Marigold, yeah. But she's not exactly a hidden danger.
>>30870003The crack is right above the hinge. Opening and closing my laptop is tricky business for me right now. I'm keeping it stable with a paperclip
>>30870009Too little too late I'm afraid.>>30870015Not to mention the fact a character with green hair could be added at any point in time.
>>30870037Watch the green hair character be a total surprise to us all due to the invention of hair dye.
Who told us about the green hair again?
>>30870048Or the paranoia fuel of a Saint Patrick's day parade.
>>30870048It could also be Mion Wendy.
>>30870059I didn't know Wendy had a sister.
>>30870055I recall Dildoes screaming "green hair is the danger" or somesuch just as we left. Which was stupid of her, since she had plenty of time to explain in further detail before.I have a vague recollection of it being mentioned somewhere else too, but cannot recall right now.
>>30870073She doesn't, nya. Probably.
>>30870075NECO said the same thing, it was during her little stay in the trunk of a car I believe?
>>30870037well right now there are more or less 4 characters with green hair and only two of them interact with us frequently doodwe should prioritise watching them also can I at least have a sardin dood?
>>30870075no, stupid of US. We should have quizzed her about it the last time we saw her.One to Update The Journal with, I think, the next time we see her.
>>30870101What all have we written in the journal? Is that logged down somewhere?
>>30870096Even then it's much to vague to use until we get more of an idea of what to look out for.Or I could donate you to Etna instead.
>>30870096How many characters do we know with green eyes?
>>30870101No, she screamed that "green hair" thing just as our last meeting ended, and we were kicked out of the DEagle-world before we could ask her what she meant.We should really have another "communion" soon. We need to make peace with Braids and ask wtf Dildoes meant with the green hair warning. Possibly ask for tips on learning Telekinesis too.
>>30869688 >>30869690 >>30869691 >>30869696You shake your head. Some other time, you tell Mami. You've got other stuff to take care of first. Youd like it if she could arrange it for some other day, when your schedule's not as full.Mami, as polite and as patient with you as ever, nods and smiles. "Hee, how responsible, Chiaki-san! Alright, I'll schedule it for sometime this week. I'll be sure to notify and call you at least a day in advance for it. That'll give me enough time to try it again with her, too. Maybe by then, she'll be more amenable to telling us the information we need." She nods again. "I'll take care of this personally, Chiaki-san, don't you worry."Heh. You're not worried one bit, if she's handling it. But...you ARE worried for her. Is she going to be okay? The prisoners ARE girls who were brainwashed into being willing soul gem bombs, after all. That kind of crazy is the crazy that goes for the jugular even when you've sawed their arms off and blown their kneecaps out.The smile that Mami gives you now is just as saintly and as warm as any of her previous smiles - but you feel, for the shortest of moments, a chill run up your spine at the sight of it. You recognize it for what it is: a very brief surge of pure, intense killing intent. It wasn't directed at you - you'd have pulled out your Desert Eagle right then and there, by reflex alone - or anybody else, but just revealed momentarily. Like a blade being partly drawn from its sheath."I've handled worse, Chiaki-san! And I'm still here, aren't I?" Mami giggles again, and suddenly moves forward to catch you in a soft, warm hug. The dreadful moment fading quickly, as quick as it had risen, but leaving its taste on your tongue. "Now, go and take care of whatever it is you've got scheduled. Remember what we talked about, too!"Despite everything, you find yourself returning the hug, a small smile tugging the corners of your lips upwards. ...Yes. Of course you'll remember.[1/2]
>>30870153"Good!" She squeezes you tighter, warmer, and you feel your knees almost buckle at the sheer...coziness currently wrapping around your frame. The warmth of someone else's body, pressing against yours, just for you. Only for you. Her soft honey perfume mingling with the crisp scent of the fresh linen sheets of the bed."I'm glad you got back safely, Chiaki-san." She whispers in your ear. "Thank you for coming back to us." The blonde squeezes you again. "Thank you for coming back to me.". . .You leave the interrogation room a moment later, the remnants of mission fatigue all but shorn away completely, a rather goofy smile on your face. You also feel a disturbing heat on your cheeks, which, along with the smile, you hope would fade before you have to talk to someone important."Three hundred thousand," Risa suddenly murmurs beside you, her dog-eared shadow manifesting with the far-off sound of a chainsaw revving as its motorized teeth bites into flesh. "Three hundred thousand points for the blonde, mate. Jesus Christ, no, four. Seriously." She shakes her head at you, running her hands up and down her arms. "Cripes, I've got gooseflesh all over just being in the same fucking room with her!"Huh. Is...is she talking about Mami? Is Risa actually scared of Mami?How do you react?
>>30870164[x]"Not for all the points in the world."
>>30870153>>30870164Mami you fuckin creepy as shit like god damn.[x] "Not worth it, Risa. Not worth it."
>>30870164She'd be worth a billion if she's worth a dozen.
>>30870164[x] "I know Mami's strong, but don't EVER think I'll be going after her points. I'm lucky shes on my side."
>>30870164[X] "You better have a damn good reason for saying that that or I'm keeping you in Storage for a month."
>>30870164>How do you react?"Why? Why are you so scared of her?"
>>30870164[X] "Its probably the pancakes she makes. They can get you locked up in a silent room for month"
>>30870164[X] High score here we come.
>>30870182The mask seems to be slipping. Anyone remember if she did anything creepy like this in the earlier quests?
>>30870122NOOOOOOO!anything but that dood!>>30870126that I don't know dood>>30870164we are not killing our allies Risa, not without a good reason for that any way
>>30870164"Good to know you place such high value on The 9th's resident mom."Ignore the thought of killing Mami and look at the comment as Risa's weird Australian way of complimenting someone.
>>30870164I'd probably witch out half the officio if I even tried.
>>30870164"Her and Kharn are the only two people I look up to. Explains a few things doesn't it?"
>>30870164[x]"Propose something like that again and I WILL find a way to end you, Risa."
I wonder what would happen if we ask to spar against mami.Instant KO?Or would she toy with us like a kitten.
>>30870268>ribbon bondage followed by getting beaten unconscious with ornate muskets
>>30870164"Do you think you could take her on? Dream on Risa."
>>30870268I doubt Chiaki could put all her effort into it unless it was a serious life or death fight.All this Mami turning more and more creepy makes me wonder... Is she using her golden weapon?
>>30870216Not even the power of love can protect you from this fate.
>>30870174>>[x]"Not for all the points in the world."
>>30870206No, but as was said earlier, Malals entry on her was pretty damn creepy. From the Wiki:T O M O E[PASSWORD ACCEPTED.][UNLOCKING ENTRY #7 ][You love her, don't you? It's alright. Everyone loves her. She makes sure of it. There's nobody in the magical girl business more connected than Tomoe Mami - she's got friends in every Officio. More than that, she has people that would kill for her, maybe even die for her for nothing more than a smile and a pat on the head. Not just rank and file, either - Warmasters have fallen in love with Tomoe Mami. Special forces. Cannibals and murderers, heroes and psychopaths. If Mami died, the entire magical world would grieve, and then it would hunt.][You're one of them. There's no shame in it. She's a mother figure for a lot of people, and a lover for a lot of others. Someone that always knows what carrot to use and when, and how to use the stick after she pulls the ribbons out.][I don't trust her. Nobody should command that much power. But if you're on her side - no, of course you're on her side. If she's on your side, and you know that for certain, she's probably the most valuable asset you could have. Just be careful. Watch your back. Don't let her smile fool you. She's a killer, just like any other magical girl that's been around for as long as she has.][Maybe worse.]---I love it. Mami is scary. Lets make sure she remains our friend eh?
>>30870164[x] "One warning only. If you ever imply that again, I will find a way to crawl in there, and kill you."This is a Risa that killed her Jäger. She is not to be trusted.
>>30870289It begs another question - is she original owner of the weapon?She could be but on the other hand I can totally see spirit of Rip Van Winkle in there.
>>30870268It'd be a good fight, but as things stand right now we'd probably lose. Badly.
>>30870289The scarier answer is "nope".
>>30870319Exactly why it would be a good training session
>The smile that Mami gives you now is just as saintly and as warm as any of her previous smiles - but you feel, for the shortest of moments, a chill run up your spine at the sight of it. Betrayal soon, fellow anons.
>>30870164>>30870182>[x] "Not worth it, Risa. Not worth it."This. Both for the "Not for all the points in the world" meaning and the "I'm really not even sure you're giving her enough credit" one....That said, this can't be the first time Risa's met Mami, can it? What with being around Kharn and all.What did Kharn tell her when the two of them had this same conversation? Just out of curiosity.
Mami is Homulucifer.
>>30870317>I can totally see spirit of Rip Van Winkle in there.Now I want this to happen so fucking much.
>>30870164[X]"It's not worth it, every magical girl and their grandmother would hunt us down and do things to us that would even make FAUST puke."Don't tell me we've forgotten about that moment of pure terror already!
>>30870347Mami always had her full guard up around Kharn I think. So Risa might not have picked up on it.
>>30870347Risa acted like it was the first time she met us when we used the axes against Sayaka too, even though we fought right beside Kharn, and even sparred with her in Siberia.She's crazy enough that it's kind of plausible she just forgot, but it still seems strange.
>>30870370[X] "You know the only thing more terrifying than Mami when she's like that?Disappointed Mami."
>>30870402She probably forgot. She does it all the time in HQR.
>>30870420Is she going to forget who Kharn is soon? Or at least partially at first.>So I know of this really badass chick in Siberia, worth a FUCKLOAD of points.
>>30870444I would not be surprised.
>>30870444I wonder if we get more points for a double kill?
>>30870420>>30870444Risa has a hard time remembering little people. Little people to her is everyone who is not Risa
>>30870402In retrospect, it could just be that Risa's SO thrown off by being in the same room as her that it's only coming off as being a first-time assessment. (The "no, actually 400k" bit is mostly what points to that.)And even if it was her being forgetful and having to first-time it a second time, I suppose she'd have to do a new assessment every time regardless in order to properly factor in betrayal bonuses and the like.
>>30870471Or every number she spouts out is arbitrary. Because she is insane.
>>30870481>Because she is insane.Is there any evidence of this?
>>30870481Kinda like power levels in Dragonball?
Don't forget that the closer you are to a person, higher multiplier that person gets to their points. Knowing Chiaki's attachment to Mami, this should be the main reason why her numbers are so high, not her fighting abilities.
>>30870499... It's Risa we're talking about.
>>30870499The NECO post. The character she is based on. Her general behavior.
>>30870481Insinuating that she's not totally professional when it comes to The High Score? For shame.Ok, so there's probably a LITTLE bit of hyperbole. Gotta have a bit of a sense of showmanship.
>>30870516>using that image macroGet. Out.
Wait, wasn't Mami crippled by Kirika?
>>30870650Magic, son. She's alright now.
>>30870650>magical girls>existing in a state between healthy and dead for longer than a month
>>30870650She got stabbed. But recovered quickly (because Magical Girl). I still wonder if the way she acted after Kirika's death was legit sadness of losing a friend, way to mask frustration of losing an asset or just an act to match up with the image she's trying to keep.
>>30870680Got better after being crippled by Kilgore, and will soon be perfectly fine after having an arm and leg blown off.
>>30870685>onder if the way she acted after Kirika's death was legit sadness of losing a friend, way to mask frustration of losing an asset or just an act to match up with the image she's trying to keep.If she's as badass as everyone is making her out to be, you have to wonder if even being Kirika's hostage WAS ALL AN ACT
>>30870685It's all four.
>>30870711The thing you have to realise is that everyone is a badass here. Even Chiaki, sometimes.
>>30870711She let Kirika take her, of course.She was trying to get Kirika to change her mind until the very end.
>>30870711I think she actually didn't expect Kirika to stab her. Probably just a miscalculation on her part.
>>30870746Yes, but Mami is a badass all the time.
>>30870796my point being, so was Kirika.
>>30870667>>30870673I thought the Golden Katana or Kirika herself had the ability to inhibit healing.
>>30870830No, this is!
>>30870891>Kirika herself had the ability to inhibit healing.The thing with Kyouko's eye was before Kirika got Muramasa.
>>30870917If it was one Kirika's magical abilities, maybe she stopped using it once she got the katana?Because she fucked up Mami and Chiaki pretty good with that thing and they healed up just fine.
>>30870917I always thought it was because eyepatch Kyoko looks amazing, and damn the inconsistencies.
>>30870933or it was just one of those one in a million strikes on a magical girl that just doesn't heal right and "sticks".
>>30870933It could have been that she didn't see the need to do it with Mami or Chiaki, like she has willful control over it.
>>30870174 >>30870182You very nearly stop in your tracks as what Risa had said finally sinks in - but you force yourself to continue walking as you rifle inside your Shield's inventory, trying to see if it'd be lenient for once and spit out a forgotten cigarette stick or two. Pleasantly, it does, and you busy yourself with lighting one."What're ya, hard of hearin'?" Risa snaps as you give your lit cigarette a quick series of puffs, helping the tip catch aflame as you flip your zippo closed. "I said that bint's worth four hundred thousand points, Murderface. Bag her, and yer just a couple of squads away from gettin' the high score!"You heard her just fine the first time, you grumble around your cigarette, taking a moment to savor the taste of the smoke, the sensation of its calming tendrils roiling around your chest. You hold your breath here, wanting to hold on to that small bit of peace and calm, before letting go of it in a deep exhalation."Well?" The wolf-eared ghost says impatiently. "Come on! She's practically inna locked room, here, and we can always foist the murder off that chick she's coddlin', and--"No. You say finally, cutting the shadow off. Not for all the points in the world.Risa's black-pinned golden eyes go wide here. "B-but, the high score--"It's not worth it, you tell her. It'll never be worth it. "You get the entire fucking Cruor Praetoria as yer own posse! Twelve fuckin' giant demons with wings! An' the loving admiration of all your peers! How the fuck is that not worth it?!"You take another long, slow drag from your cigarette. She really wants to know?"Of course I fuckin' do!" Risa growls. "Christ, even Kharn--"Even Kharn couldn't kill Mami, you cut her off again. And Risa thinks you could? [1/2]
>>30870953unlikely. She REALLY hated Murderface.
>>30870987It's not just a question of ability here, you explain as calmly as you can. Even if for some strange, insane reason that you believed that you had a chance to stand up against the Ninth's finest Vindicare - one who shot and sniped and clubbed her way to the top without the unfair advantage of Time Stop - there's no way you'd even make a single aggresive move against her. Not for all the money, whisky or giant winged demon dudes in the world.Because she's Mami. She's your Mami. And there's no fucking way you'd do anything to hurt her."..." Risa stops in her tracks here, suddenly silent. You continue on walking, leaving the shadow behind. She catches up a moment later by the elevators, as you press the button to summon a car."Okay, okay. I think we can work this, here." Risa holds up both hands. "Why don't I just take over, huh? So that it's technically not you who's doing it. I'll let you back in when it's done, and I'll even make sure that I wash your hands first! So you don't see all the blood and stuff! And--"You shake your head again, narrowing your eyes at the ghost. Isn't she fucking listening? You don't WANT the goddamn points. You'll earn the points and the high score some other way. Besides, does she even know what kind of backlash you'll get killing Mami, even if you even so much as tried it? "...People'd mail you angry letters?" The wolf-eared ghost hazards.Your own fucking people will hunt you down and kill you. Not the Tenth, or the Prophet, or even the Sixteenth. Your own Officio will hunt you down and murder you, with Blueberry Bitch leading the entire operation. ...Probably Kyoko too, at that, and she'd be crying the entire time."That...that bad?" If there was a way for a shadow to actually get pale, you have no doubt Risa'd be doing it now. "Cripes."You nod. So yeah, she can forget about that. If you're honest, you think 400K's a bit too low for her. Someone like Mami...she'd deserve at least twice that.[2/3]
>>30871004"It's not like I make all of these point totals up on the spot, you know." Risa says wretchedly as she squats beside the elevator, grunting. "There's a lot of stuff ta consider. There's the ability of the sparklie itself, an' the innate potential...if the Blessed Lady likes 'em or not, that kinda point modifier." She lets out a sigh. "But, to be completely honest with ya..." The shadow looks up at you, almost pitifully, like a beaten dog. "She just...I think she's serious bad news. I mean, didn't ya feel that earlier? When she smiled at you the last time?"How do you respond?What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further, or I'll stuff you in storage for a fucking year.I don't care what you think. Suggest this again and I swear I'll break you in half. Both chainaxes.Ignore Risa, continue to wait for the elevator. You've had enough of this psycho.
>>30870933Maybe it was an ability only her natural magic weapon had and Muramasa lacks it?
>>30871013[x] "That's why I'm glad she's on my side."
>>30871013[x]I felt it. And it was super hot.
>>30871013[x] Sure, I felt it. Still doesn't mean I'd kill her.
>>30871013"I felt it. And it's one of the reasons that not having her on our side is the worst possible thing ever.Imagine what it'd be like if she was actively trying to kill *us*."
>>30871013[X]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further.We know.
>>30871013[x]Other"Of course she's bad news, if you get on her wrong side. I've already been warned of that."As for whether the Blessed Lady likes her: Pinky loves her pancakes, Risa. You're asking for Pinky to come in here and eviscerate your soul if you raise a hand against Mami."
>>30871013>>[X]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further, or I'll stuff you in storage for a fucking year.As much as I prefer option two, we need CLUES.
>>30871013>What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further, or I'll stuff you in storage for a fucking year.
>>30871013[x]Better with than against us.
>>30871013[x]Voting for this >>30871021
>>30871013>[x]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further, or I'll stuff you in storage for a fucking year.
>>30871013[x]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further, or I'll stuff you in storage for a fucking year.Forever ignoring Mami's obvious extreme deviations from canon is going to bite us sooner or later.
>>30871013[X]What do you mean she's bad news?If Risa can tell us something, we should hear her out. Does not mean we would attack Mami, but this might be an in-character way to learn that Mami has a GW for example.
>>30871013[x]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further
>>30871036>[X]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further.We have an idea. But she's been pulling this "bad news" shtick a bit. First Sayaka. Now Mami.News Flash Risa. The Ninth is bad news central.
>>30871013[x]I don't care what you think. Suggest this again and I swear I'll break you in half. Both chainaxes.Best Answer. While I think that Chiaki slowly but surely notices more things that seem off about Mumi after the Diary outright told us so, I still think she is mostly in denial about it.
>>30871013[X] I felt that. I imagine people have felt the same about me. Kind of a turn on. Makes me want to take her to bed, not kill her.
>>30871013>[X]What do you mean she's bad news? Explain further, or I'll stuff you in storage for a fucking year.
>>30871013[x] "Yeah, I felt it. Know what's worse? Seeing her frown and refuse to say she's disappointed, but you just know it."As terrifying as she is, am I the only one who thinks Mami's just cultivated this adoration so she's never alone again?
>>30871013[x] "Yeah, I felt it. And I'm glad as fuck that it's not aimed at me. Though if you have some greater insight into this situation..."
>>30871037>Pinky loves her pancakes,ACtually, Witching Mami might be the quickest way to get Pinky a proper supply of pancakes.She may not complain all that much...
>>30871075.........Can you make batter out of ground soul gems?
>>30871013Yeah, I felt it. I think she was just reminding me that she's not some helpless damsel that needs protecting. It's easy to forget sometimes that she's been a Magical Girl, and survived, for a long time.
>>30871013>>30871021>[x] "That's why I'm glad she's on my side.">>30871059>[X] "...Unless you've got something more concrete than a vague sense of dread, that is. News Flash, Risa. The Ninth is bad news central."
>>30871083If anyone could it'd be Mami.
>>30871070Terrifyingly efficient and terribly afraid. That's her character in one
>>30871083Well, as someone teaching himself to cook, if you can powder them, even if it didn't incorporate in like flour or sugar, you could at least make some sort of gemdust-studded pancake batter. If they DID incorporate, you could totally make literally-sparkly pancakes....And that's how /tg/ got me contemplating grinding up a crystallized soul/phylactery to supply light, fluffy breakfast treats to a fallen goddess with a bloody smile. I love you guys, you know that, right?
>>30871013>[x]I don't care what you think. Suggest this again and I swear I'll break you in half. Both chainaxes.Mami bad news? Nope, full denial. Not possible.
>>30871013>>30871021Going for this.
>>30871083Soul gems are rocks.Do you really think you can make pancakes out of rocks?
>>30871070She`s probably working for Pinky because of reasons just like Kharn.
>>30871060I still think Chiaki would atleast be willing to hear Risa out, if she has anything concrete to say.
>>30871112I've never tried, but I'm sure that it could be possible.
>>30871097Honestly, unless we get juked hard and Mami is alpha cultist of the Blessed Lady, I really think the best thing to do is trust her. When you get yourself into that mode of being indispensable, you train yourself into taking genuine enjoyment from it, and not in a power-control kind of way (though there's that). I know I'm probably too naive by half for MGNQ, but I do think if we give Mami the loyalty she desperately wants to command from people, we'll receive it in turn.
>>30871119>I'm sure that it could be possibleRocks, anon.They're ROCKS.Unless you use bullshit breakfast magic to manipulate the ROCKS into something that isn't ROCKS you aren't going to make pancake batter out of soulgems.
>>30871021Sounds correctly naive to me, supporting
>>30871013[x]What do you mean she's bad news? EXPLAIN.
>>30871129Um, powdered rocks can be eaten. It's not exactly good for you, but it can be done.
>>30871129Whoa, whoa, whoa. You are making a huge assumption here. Soul gems look like gems, and are presumable hard enough to make them good phylacteries, but we know nothing about the physical properties of the soul made manifest. For all we know, they make AMAZING pancakes.
>>30871129Says you. I could totally do it, so that means Mami could do it and actually make them taste good.
>>30871142Powdered rock isn't pancake batter
>>30871120We did have a POV from Mami a while back, so we know she is not a "MUAHAHAHA" evil manipulator or anything, so you are probably right that she would be loyal to us so long as we did not turn on her first.However there is stil the issue that in that same POV flashback, we learned that she has a GW (a golden musket). And even after learning everything about GWs as she recently has, she has still chosen to both keep quiet about it and not give the GW either to QB or Chiaki.That is suspicious and also leaves open the option that Pinky might be influencing her mind or otherwise corrupting her.
>>30871162See >>30871104You could at least grind it down and put it in the batter, even if it didn't mix into solution. Pinky can have her soulcakes.
>>30871115"our" Mami basically is what coobs was in the anime. Except with heavy sugar coating.
>>30871176But it's a good fat.
>>30871176>Midori>FatWhat started this again? She's actually fairly realistic, other than the big honking hooters.
>>30871243I did. But it's become pretty well-accepted that she's soft around the edges, in a good, healthy way.
Well, you think Mami is tough? You think Mami is dangerous?Let me remind you that the same way we got timeline jumping Uber-Witch Oktavia von Seckendorff here, we might as well get timeline jumping Uber-Witch Candeloro.
>>30871256>Implying that thing in the silent room right now is Mami>Implying Mami ever made it out of Charolette's barrier>Implying Candeloro isn't walking around wearing a Mami-skin suit
>>30871243Fat is good anon.
>>30871243Squishy butt is the best butt.
>>30871272That would require the first person PoV part of the quest that we played as her to lie about her getting out alive.
>>30871328You're assuming that we weren't playing as a witch. You know, the things that are utterly batshit insane.For all we know, it genuinely thought it was Mami for the time we were playing it.
>>30871352But Mami went into the barrier after we started playing as her.
>>30871362The seamlessness of the transition only further strengthens my theory.
>>30871390...How? I'm genuinely curious as to how that helps.
>>30871407We didn't even notice that we were actually playing as Candeloro. That proves that she's a master of disguise.
>>30871431I am speechless.
>>30871431We're figuring out all of Decu's plot twists this thread.
>>30871431>Candeloro is Creed of this universe.
>>30871431and we never see purple armies, therefore purple is the stealthiest color
>>30871431You know we might not have noticed Candero because we -aren't- candero, right?
>>30871463That would be a valid argument if you were a soldier that was actually purple but you didn't know it.But that isn't the case; you may be a soldier but you can't know that you are unaware of your true color because the perceptions between individuals vary based on perception, thus you will never know that you are actually purple.
>>30871431Damnit, we have to take her out before its too late. We need to take her unaware. Lets prepare Risa and go back.>>30871468What?
>>30871468That's crazy talk.
>>30871463>Why did the elephant paint its toenails red?>Why?>So it could hide in an apple tree.>What?>You ever seen an elephant in an apple tree?>No.>Exactly.
>>30871468You know who else isn't Candeloro?Jyuubey.I don't know about you, but I don't want to be a dickbutt like Jyuubey. I guess feel free if you're into that.
>>30871496Unless we define "purple" by range of wavelengths, then we will have objective definition of "purple" and can tell for sure what's purple (it just might not look purple to some people).
>>30871545So, if I understand you correctly, Mami is Jyuubey?
When did we ever play mami/candeloro/etc?
>>30871468So you are saying Mami is just pretending to be the Candeloro who is disguised as Mami?Don't you think thats unnecessarily complex?
>>30871554Yes. But thankfully we've been taking our cues from Candeloro, who isn't.
>>30871554No Mami isn't Jyuubey, thank god, because Mami is Condeloro
>>30871553If you saw "purple" the way I see "red", you would still identify it as "purple". Regardless of how individuals perceive it, they will still know it as the same color based on its wavelength.
>>30871566>The reason Jyubey is such a dickbutt is because he's secretly Condeloro
>>30871566So Mami is Candeloro, Condeloro and also Candero? If so, what makes you think she is also not Jyuubey?Infact, how do you know WE are not Mami who is Candeloro pretending to be Chiaki!
>>30871579That just means that everyone sees Mami as Mami because that's what we know her as when really she's Candeloro.Truly, she is the sneakiest of witches.
>>30871591The important question is who is Midori?
>>30871542Candeloro is our glasses. After we lost them we glimpsed what Mami is really like. We've been wearing a shroud of lies on our head the entire time, where Candeloro lets us see only what it wants us to see.
>>30871591>how do you know WE are not Mami who is Candeloro pretending to be Chiakibecause Candeloro shows no hesistation when it is time to kill
>>30871602Wendy. Keep up.
The shdowruns are getting out of hand.Next people are going to be saying the officios are witch barriers.
>>30871602She's the danger, she also may be Sayaka since we discovered earlier on that Sayaka is the danger.
>>30871557Thread 27 & 28.
>>30871579but what if one sees the red and purple as one and the same? that's when things start to become weird.
>>30871602The real Chiaki who is pretending to be Midori in an effort to take her identity back from the Mami that is Candelore who performed identity theft when she started pretending to be Chiaki.I mean duh. Thats obvious. Midori is actually pretending to be QB.
>>30871628Sayaka is a blueberry. Where do blueberries come from? PLANTS. You know what plants are? GREEN.You know what's green? THE DANGER.SAYAKA IS DOUBLE DANGER
>>30871647Is she also Risa's old friend, Fernandez?
>>30871626>implying this whole world isn't kyubey's barrier>implying he's not insane because he's actually a witch
I'm getting too sober for this.
>>30871668No, that's Malal.
>>30871626Really the whole world is a witch barrier, and Incubators are its familiars.
>>30871595>>30871629thx for saving me a lot of searching
>>30871668I dunno. Did she teabag Satan at mach 4trillion? Tobias did, so if Jasmine is Sayaka, then that explains her lack of balls.
This is some "Ray Charles is God" shit going on.So everyone and everything is everyone and everything else because of mundane tangential relations. So this quest is actually about a singularity?
>>30871673>A witch>Not ALL of them
>>30871686Malal is also using the "multiple bodies with a single soul" trick to also be Kyoko and Misaka. As usual, she is ahead of everyone else.
>>30871699hell, it's always been about that.>>30871710Truly, she is in every shadow.
>>30871686You mean Malal is Jackie? What the hell?
>>30871724Malal is also NECO! Poor NECO is just ignorant of that because thats how good Malal is.
>>30871710Only in your perverted dreams.
>>30871739>Her "true love" was just intense masturbation.Hows them dildos, cat?
>>30871756They have their own little watches.
Ohh wait, I understand now. This quest is like the Elders Scrolls universe. Everyone is just part of the same sleeping god with split personality. Godoka and Homucifer are what happens when someone who has Chimed.So the goal now is to get Chiaki to chim without zero summing and we have won the game.
>>30871741actually i'm beginning to think getting the cast laid would probably solve a lot of problems
>>30871756Based on this>>30871710Apparently pretty good.
>>30871738Madoka is cheating Homura-chan with Johnson? The world is going nuts. Clearly the ends of time is upon us!
>>30871756You mean nyaasturbation.
Well this escalated quickly.
>>30871776Well, I guess that explains why everyone tries to ruin Kyoko every time she shows up. Nobody wants to get speared.
>this threadI WANT OFF THE RIDE!
You guys realize with all these ranting, we just came up with enough plot twists to fill a couple of puella magi films right? Some of them are pretty good too.
>>30871049You narrow your eyes at Risa. What does she mean about Mami being bad news? She'd better explain further, or you'll stuff her in storage for an entire fucking year.Risa returns your glare with one of her own, before slowly standing up and patting her knees. "Right. Well, I already bent yer ear warnin' ya about the blue bitch, and I can't say much about that because..." She pauses here, tilting her head, as if suddenly listening for something. "'Cause of quantum, see. Stars aren't right enough for that and all that rot."...That's bullshit, but she can go on, sure. You probably could guess what she was warning you about.The wolf-eared ghost lets out another sigh, as if lamenting some unknown regret, before nodding to herself. "I know I go on about betrayin' your best friends and everythin', but I don't really go into it as much as you think I do. No one should have to, in a good, just world. You shouldn't have to hug your best friend without worryin' if she's just making sure she knows where to stick the knife in."..."I killed my best friend," Risa suddenly admits. "I killed my best friend and I ate her corpse AND her Soul Gem. Not because I thought it'd be a fun idea at the time, or that I was hungry and needed a snack, but because I thought I was saving her." She looks down on her ghostly, nearly-transparent hands. "I thought I was savin' the entire fuckin' world by killin' her, my squad, an' my Warmaster."You're silent at this. What the fuck can you say to something like that?[1/2]
>Vomit is green>Wendy is Vomit Chan>Sometimes when you throw up, it gets in your hair.>Green hairWENDY IS ALSO THE DANGER
>>30871813But Anon, the ride never ends.
>>30871813>I WANT OFF THE RIDE!You'll just land in another ride. It's rides, all the way down.
>>30871827Oh. Shit. Son.
>>30871812Kyoko is the Worf of MGNQ except Worf was never secretly Ophelia.
>>30871827>What the fuck can you say to something like that?"its amazing what you can justify when you think you're saving the world."
>>30871827"There're only two kinds of people who betray people who trust 'em, Murderface." Risa holds up a hand, two fingers sticking out from a clenched fist. " Cowards, because they're worthless pieces of shit who only look out for themselves, and good people - because they're okay with bearin' that kind of unforgivable sin if it means contributin' to the bigger picture. And that blonde bint over there--" She jerks a thumb at Mami's interrogation room. "--ain't got the look of a coward. Not by a long shot. For one thing, she doesn't have these." The ghost grabs both her wolf ears, pinching them....This is fucking ridiculous. Risa's scared of Mami because she's a good person? When is being a good person so fucking scary to a spirit that inhabits a pair of fuckoff chainaxes?"You don't really get it, do you?" Risa's grin is a weak, sickly one. "Well...didn't really expect you to. Just remember to be careful and watch your back. Especially around her."...If it'll get her to shut up about this forever, fine. You'll make sure to shield yourself from Mami's goody-good rays, waiting for her inevitable betrayal because she's so fucking nice."Please yourself, ya buggerin' git. I'm done." Risa growls at you, before suddenly fading. "Wake me up when blood must flow. And I'm still disappointed ya let that free thousand points get away, you know!"The Elevator doors open as soon as Risa vanishes, and you step inside. You toss the spent butt of your cigarette - already smoked down to the filter - and make to light another one, just as you think on which floor to go.Go to your Office.

>>30871862>Go to your Office. Get ready for the certification ceremony there. Maybe grab a nap first, drink a little
>>30871889It occurs to me that we could possibly get Kirika to work with us willingly, if we manage to save Oriko from the corrupting influence of the staff.She would presumably know full well what it does now.
>>30871862>[x]Go to your Office. Get ready for the certification ceremony there. Maybe grab a nap first, drink a little (or a lot).TIME'S A WASTIN' TA GET WASTED
>>30871862>[x]Go to your Golden Weapon Vault, first.
>>30871862>Go to your Golden Weapon Vault, first.We should give Kirika a visit, see how badly she wants to fuck us over and all that.Talking to the Homugroup's probably a good idea as well since we should probably smooth things over with Braids and ask Dildos about why green hair is dangerous.
>>30871862>[x]Go to your Office. Get ready for the certification ceremony there. Maybe grab a nap first, drink a little (or a lot).
>>30871862>[x]Go to your Golden Weapon Vault, first.I want to know if Yuu is ready to go, talk with Armored Chiaki in the Golden DEagle, and use the DEagle as a counterweight as we talk to Kirika.
>>30871862[X]Go to your Golden Weapon Vault, first.I want to finally do that talk with Kirika, dammit.
>>30871862[x] Charles' Bar.Fuck it.
>>30871862[X]Go to your Golden Weapon Vault, first.Being mean about who Braids loves was bad and needs an apology.
>>30871862[x]Office. Enough shenanigans for the moment.
>>30871862[x]Go to your Golden Weapon Vault, first.I'd like to trade in Risa for Yuu.
>>30871889>>30871919>>30871935>KirikaFuck that, only if Sayaka is around to cut our arms off for when she goes banana nut butters and tries to take over our body. And we agreed with Sayaka that we are going to duel her with it tomorrow.>>30871913We made that hypothesis a long time ago. When we found out Oriko was the Prophet and that she was using Ahrimans staff. I think it's the agreed upon plan of action.
>>30871913I'd say it's the other way around, if we are to get Kirika to cooperate it will be only to save Oriko.Either way, it's worth a shot.
>>30871961It certainly isn't unanimous. I think Kirika is more likely to try and join Oriko's team than help us beat her.
>>30871961>And we agreed with Sayaka that we are going to duel her with it tomorrow.Oh right, so we did. I completely forgot about that.>>30871862[x]Go to your Office. Get ready for the certification ceremony there. Maybe grab a nap first, drink a little (or a lot).Seriously, since the Vindicare Teams seem to be named after IJN carriers, let's just call them Shokaku.
>>30871981Fair enough, I'm pretty sure we are going to at least pitch the idea to Kirika."Are you find with Oriko being a puppet?" Kind of thing.
>>30871973If we manage to save Oriko though, and offer to try and protect her in the future, Kirika will probably cooperate and not try to possess us.And Oriko presumably knows that Ahriman (I think that was her name) is inside the staff she is carrying. So we could use that to try and convince Oriko that Kirika is still around too, and have Kirika convince her to surrender the staff and give up.It has its risks, but if we just kill Oriko, then we can forget ever using the sword.
>>30872025Or someone else is inside the staff altogether. Like say... Mami, or should I say Condeloro.
>>30872047Or maybe Malal?Then again, I think we all have a small part of Malal inside ourself if we just believe!...that came out wrong.

>>30872067Malal is our phone, she communes through the diary app. This is confirmed by the fact that decu expected us to just kill Midori, but there was still an entry about her.
>>30872088>>30872092damn lost it for seconds dood
>>30872096Decu can't see the future, Malal can.
>>30872088Hmm. Which vote won? Was it a draw or did I miscount?
>>30872096>>30872108Then who was Deculture?
>>30872025Assuming she believes a damn thing we say. It's not like Kirika was a murderface fan when she was alive.
>>30872120Ohh god, who's flying the plane?
>>30872117Very narrow win for the vault.
>>30871913Isn't it more likely that Kirika will try to convince Oriko to become possessed by her and start round 2? It might be tricky for her to do so, but it's not like she has anything else to plan for.
>>30872096Naah, Malal was in the barrier with all the fragments when Chiaki split to pieces.That means Malal is actually inside Chiaki. There is no phone, there never was.
>>30872143I would be fine with that, because fuck Ahriman. She's a self centered bitch that sacrificed a ton of her own girls for a little bit of power and I just want to ruin her plans.
>>30872136Well, we can prove it to her by just bringing her along when we go meet Oriko.>>30872143Would she really do that to Oriko though? I thought she loved her or somesuch. Stealing Orikos body for her own use is something Kirika would presumably never do.And she would presumably be horrified that Ahriman is apparently already doing that.
Alright! Pausing thread again early for now, so we can have another one tomorrow night (or tonight as it's already tomorrow here! Hahaha!) Thank you for everyone's participation, feedback is encouraged!No writeups tonight I believe, so questions answered before going to bed!
>>30872178Thanks for running!How do magical girls deal with diseases (colds, fevers, and the really nasty stuff, etc.)? Do they get sick like normal people?What about poisons and chemical weapons?
>>30872178I think the players are broken Decu. We went too far down the rabbit hole, sorry.
>>30872178Thank you for running! Question!To what extent are the spirits inside the Golden Weapons aware of things around Chiaki? Risa for example was apparently in the shield, but she still saw Mami and could choose to appear and talk to Chiaki at will. Yuu also did something similar during the idol job.Can they all do that? For example, since Chiaki is also carrying the DEagle right now, are the Braids-, Dildoes- and Murderface-incarnations watching everything thats happening around Chiaki, and could they also choose to speak to her and comment anytime they wanted to?
>>30872120>He still doesnt know who Decus real identity
>>30872167Maybe not possession, but something akin to what Chiaki does with the other golden weapons. But then again, Kirika did gravely wound and kidnap Mami, who was one of her friends.
>>30872199We went Full Decu before Deculture himself did!
>>30872178Thanks for running!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!I can still remember the very first thread!I'm not sure why I said that.
>>30872197>What about poisons and chemical weapons?Young man, vhat do you suppose I do for a living?
>>30872178Thanks for running DecultureEverytime that we introduce someone to Risa she is going to sense danger and offer points for us?and is she going to offer points for Wendy?
>>30872236A fond reminisce of simpler times? Before the shadowruns drove us all completely mad.
>>30872178Thanks for running, Decupyon!
>>30872197Sometimes they do if they're really pushing themselves to the limit, or are inherently weak. But they generally have a very strong constitution, Eversors specially.Poisons and chemical weapons work slower on them, unless they're the really deadly sort, which destroys the body quickly.>>30872205Risa can be very aware and very independent. So far she's the only one that can do it that Chiaki's found. The Chainaxes are crazy. The three stooges can somewhat because they ARE Chiaki in a sense, and Yuu can only do it while siphoning energy off of Chiaki.
>>30872178Just how many ideas have you gotten from our trip down this rabbit hole?
>>30872255create monstrous abomination dood?
>>30872221But Chiaki can do that because she is:A)Magical GirlB)Has her soulgem linked with Walpurgisnacht that absorbs most of the corruption.Oriko could not wield the sword. She would just go insane and corrupted just like Kirika herself did. And I would assume Kirika would realise that, considering she DID go insane.I presume if we remind her about how she was ranting about "the devils green blood", and ask if she wants that for Oriko, we can get her to cooperate.
Weren't we going to check on Midori?
>>30871579Japanese movie called Infection. It will make you doubt this statement.
>>30872295 After work. We still have shit to do in the officio.
>>30872295We can go three threads without checking on green, jesus.
>>30872255Put up a big front, run away when you're beaten and swear petty revenge?
>>30872295We can always ask her to accompany us to the ceremonies after we have talked to Braids, Yuu, Kirika or all of them.
>>30872222Has anyone bothered to translate those runes? I could probably do it if I had time, but I'm at work right now
>>30872262Well, only if Chiaki has the chainaxes with her! But honestly you shouldn't trust Risa, she's completely off her rocker.>>30872270Thank you for participating!>>30872236I remember it too! Such hesitant, halcyon days!>>30872273Hahahaha!
>>30872307Oh goodness, aren't you adorable. I vill remind you zat it vas Malal und zat blonde abomination of a magical girl zat ran avay instead of stayink to face me und my creations.Ze revenge point, I vill concede. I had a lot of grovink up to do back zen.
Does Misaka have tea and shoot the shit with other little girls of SCIENCE!? Like Sunny from Metal Gear or Hakase from Nichijou.
>>30872336Are you going to let us take two GWs against Oriko? Katana&DEagle kungfu ftw!
>>30872255>>30872363My, my... look who's back.
>>30872269I don't mind the shadowruns that much(most of the time) but indeed it was a much simpler time.I hope we can return to those days after the universe is unfucked.
>>30872363Oh don't act like you're better than the occasional petty revenge. It's like masturbating, everyone does it. It's fun and healthy, probably!Well, it's funny, anyway.
>>30872403But but.. the corruption...
>>30872363...Oh, right. Ha ha. I got that mixed up. My mistake. Don't eat me.
>>30872425The surgery.Stop being so scared of using two or more golden weapons. We're never gonna wield the chain axes in Yuus arms at this rate. Just let it happen.Sides, Chiaki has already used two weapons at the same time. Deagle and Axes a few threads ago.
>>30872438eat him eat him eat him eat him eat himSAKUTAROU IS DEAAAAD
>>30872425Who cares about corruption when you can dualwield a Katana and a DEagle?
>>30872399I would say so! She has a lot of friends in the Fourth, including its Warmaster.>>30872403Of course! You can always vote for it!
>>30872464Why not equip Yuu for four arms, then wield the katana, DEagle, and chainaxes in all four arms?
>>30872408I haven't forgotten you, Gräuel. Be patient. Your time vill come.>>30872424"Petty" is not qvite ze right vord... Sveeping, grandiose, over ze top, maybe. It is not a time in my life zat I look upon fondly.>30872438I vouldn't eat you! Haha, zat is silly! You are silly! Now, myy favourite little associate, on ze ozer hand...
>>30872467When a magical girl has their soul gem broken, are they dead, without any exception whatsoever (barring intervention from Faust/Homucifer)?
>>30872467You have mostly limited us to 1 GW so far (for balance reasons I guess?). Wondering if we get to choose 2 against Oriko since she also has a GW.>>30872490You are a true genius!
>>30872490I doubt we could wield a gun designed for human hands in her arms. And we haven't unlocked them yet. But I like the way you think.
>>30872507>You have mostly limited us to 1 GW so farNo he hasn't. Most people just never think to vote for more than a single GW when given the chance.
>>30872510>the tailIs basically the same as Kyokos segmented spear as well. We could achieve some pretty spectacular overkill with her as our base weapon. And I think we will need that overkill to take down any future multiple golden weapon users.
>>30872500would you trade notes with master Mao dood?
>>30872583vhy does he look like mevhat is goink ondid zat rat clone me
Alright Decu is dead, if you have any questions he didn't get to or NECO or Wendy-related questions, hit me.
>>30872458I don't wanna be eaten/deeeeeeeead!>>30872500Oh thank goodness. For a moment there I nearly lost my head.
>>30872635>asking people to hit you if decu didn't answer their questionsS-so M, Wendy-chan.
>>30872635Is detective NECO ever going to happen?
>>30872635So when the hell is Sayaka planning to tell Chiaki about that meeting Amber asked for? I was hoping she would do it while we were inflight a couple threads ago.
>>30872525Vote 1:Before you leave the vault for your office, however, you decide to take one of the Golden Weapons with you. Might as well, right?Vote 2:Which Golden Weapon did you bring? You only brought one along with you.In both votes that I can recall, it was clearly specified we could only pick one. Makes sense enough for balance reasons when facing normal MGs.But I figure against Oriko, Deculture could let us have two.
>>30872635Does Kyouko know about Amber?
>>30872670It's tempting enough where I want to do it but also I suck at devoting myself to that kinda thing, so who knows.>>30872675I was too. I know he wants to move on to the meeting after today's proceedings, so it's possible it's just going to appear on Chiaki's itinerary or she'll bring it up at one of the ceremonies.>>30872682Soul gem broken = death without divine intervention.>>30872690More than likely, Sayaka's a straight shooter who I doubt would lie to her about it, and they've likely met a handful of times.
>>30872738So, what are you doing tonight?
>>30872904Most likely pretending I'm going to write and, I dunno, pissing away an evening playing Civ.
>>30872684Decu lets us make our own choices that he never thought of. We never needed his go-ahead. The problem is the fact that listing all the possible combinations would be 15 or 16 if we considered taking none. Trying to get a general consensus from so few people out of so many options would result in a lot of options that got 1-2 votes.
>>30872690>>30872738maybe that is why Kyoko and Sayaka were having an argument at the start of the snatch&grab mission?
>>30872922In addition to this good point here, all of the golden weapons also have their own spirits, meaning taking more than one would probably make it hard to focus on meeting those characters and learning about them.
>>30872738Just how did Wendy become such a big part of the quest?
>>30872930We need to comfort Kyoko then. We can get Midori to help.
>>30872958Honestly? We were already kicking around ideas for the High Priestess of the Church about...geez, over a year ago now. On a whim I decided I wanted to play with the idea of a Madotsuki magical girl with a similar narrative to Chiaki's, and maybe if Decu liked her she could act as a mostly nameless midboss later.Decu liked her a lot more than I anticipated.
>>30873001I liked her from the first moment we met her. If I remember correctly, it was a magical fever dream where we killed each other. Good shit. Hard to not like a character like that.Think we will get a Magical Nevada-tan with a golden box cutter?
>>30873056Nah, probably not. Too much Wendy overlap and the weapon's really niche.
>>30872922How many people voting at the time were aware of that? How many would have voted for something else if the option was not given, knowing it would automatically lose since very few people choose the "other" option if its not explicitly mentioned.Something like "you only brought one" pretty much implies Deculture only wanted us to bring one anyway. And for valid reasons as Wendy pointed out.You are right about the combinations though, which is why it would probably make sense for most popular options to be given, or for Deculture to choose one and let us choose the other. Most people don't want to use the gauntlets and the Deagle together for example.For example, if we vote to go ahead with the plan to convince Oriko via Kirika-in-sword (which we would presumably talk to Kirika about during the Sayaka duel), Deculture could decide that we take the sword by default, and let us choose one other GW.>>30872951True. But we have met them all now for the most part. Well, not Kirika in-sword, but we knew her from before.
>>30873074Not enough room in this quest for more than one knife wielding introvert eh? Oh well.
>>30873090The question is, is it possible to open it up as a general 'which weapons will you take?' without getting ten different answers with only a vote or three each? Genuinely looking for suggestions here.
>>30873158Probably not. I think it's more likely that someone will remember next time that we can pick more than one, give an answer including more than one, and everyone will start a shitstorm about it.
>>30873158First vote is to pick the first weapon from a group of two, or neither.If the winning choice is neither, then it can be assumed that both other weapons are going to be taken. Otherwise, vote for the remaining two weapons.So in effect, it would go something like this:First vote is chainaxe, katana, or neither. If chainaxe wins, we then move on to the second vote with either the bangles or the deagle. If more people pic neither for option one, then we go with the gauntlets and the deagle, and leave the other two behind.Alternatively, set up both votes at once, so it'd be "Pick one : chainaxe, katana, or neither" and also "Pick one : gauntlets, deagle, or both".Does that work?
