Hopefully there wouldn't be any Invader attacks today, since you were eager to get ready for the annual school fair. Cheap junk food and carnival rides awaited you! After getting yourself cleaned up and eating breakfast, you decide to...>Go straight to school.>Go patrol for Invaders for a bit.>Other
>>31028139>>Go straight to school.
>>31028139>Go straight to school.Gotta keep up appearances! Besides, our dear friend Loki would tell us about any Invaders, right?
>>31028139>Go patrol for Invaders for a bit.Make sure none of those pukes are around. Nothing will ruin this day!
>>31028139>Go straight to school.
>>31028139>Go straight to school.Surely nothing will go wrong.
>>31028139Hmmmm, you think can get away with just heading for school. You pull on a jacket since it's a bit chilly and head out.School is pretty normal, as far as you can tell. Everybody seems pretty chill in homeroom, despite the Invader menace that has been threatening the world since last year. Then again, with the appearance of Magical Girls (like you!) and the army's increasing effectiveness against them, you suppose people are slowly beginning to think they were a routine nuisance.That kinda bothered you, actually.Nevertheless, you spend the rest of homeroom period reviewing your notes. The bell rings, signifying the end of homeroom and you get up from your seat, only to nearly be bowled over by another student as she blitzes for the door."H-hey!" You gasp, but the girl is already gone.>Ignore it and continue on to the next class.>Chase her down and make her apologize.>Other

>>3102877712 for a best of 3 roll is pretty subpar, although we do have magic to boost our chasing abilities.
>>31028734You give chase, and manage to catch sight of the girl disappearing into the bathroom. Still a bit miffed, you barge in after her.However, once you enter, you don't see anybody. That must mean she had retreated into one of the stalls. Well, maybe she had to go really bad-And then that's when you hear hushed whispering coming from one of the stalls. However, you can't quite make out the exact words. What you can tell, however, is that whoever is whispering was incredibly anxious. You pause to think on this. People who were anxious and whispering mean that they had something to hide. Usually, only criminals had something to hide. And criminals liked to use drugs...OH GOD SOMEONE WAS USING DRUGS IN YOUR SCHOOL BATHROOM.Okay, you take a deep breath to calm yourself down. There has to be a way to handle this tastefully.>Knock politely on the stall door.>Kick the goddamn door down.>Other

So... it appears that Merc Command has been kidnapped by the Companion Loki.Gentlemen, what are our options?
>>31030094summon Carol. she'll be our blood hound for tracking him down.
>>31030094By rereading idolquest
>>31029067"STOP RIGHT THERE, CRIMINAL SCUM!" You roar as you kick the stall door in. "What the fuck?!?" The girl inside shrieks.Well, at least she wasn't taking drugs. Even worse, SHE WAS CHOKING A CUTE LITTLE KITTY!"UNHAND THAT KITTY AT ONCE!" You yell."This isn't any normal goddamn cat!" The girl sputters. "It fucking talks!"Wait..."You don't have to involve yourself, in this, Heartlancer." The cat speaks, totally ignoring the fact that it's being throttled. "I"m merely trying to recruit another Magical Girl within our ranks.""Wait..." You lean forward to get a closer look. "You're a Companion?""I see Beezlebub didn't bother informing you I was in the area." Loki sniffs. "My name is Loki, and this is Alice, the girl I want to recruit.""Wait... Alice..." You frown. You vaguely remember that name. Now that you think about, this girl looked a bit familiar, and then it hit you. She was one of those girls that sort of sat in the back of the class and never talked to anybody. "You're one of those goth girls that sit in the back, aren't you?""I am NOT a goth!" She shouts, flustered and angry."Alice here doesn't seem to believe I'm real." Loki shakes his head. "Maybe you can help me convince her to join our cause?">Sure!>Actually, I think the bell just rung...>Why are you so adamant about recruiting her anyways?>Other

>>31030357>>Why are you so adamant about recruiting her anyways?
>>31030426Sorry, but we are not switching Merc's body with a loli.
>>31030357"Sure thing!" You smile and nod. More fellow Magical Girls were always a good thing! "But, erm, why are you so adamant about recruiting Alice anyways?""She has potential. Great potential!" Loki says, nodding his head furiously. "However, she is a bit reluctant in accepting my proposal.""I don't wanna get involved in that stuff, you stupid cat!" Alice scowls.>Come on, it's not that bad.>Hey, how about I show you firsthand what it's like?>Other

You know you shouldn't really do it without an Invader nearby, but it was a special occasion!You invoke your Element, which is your trusty hair tie and you TRANSFORM! In a flash of light, you transform from the normal, everyday Mirai to the super cool magical Heartlancer!"O-okay, that does look pretty cool..." Alice mutters."I know, right?" You grin, showing off your cool magical outfit. "Come on, it's not so bad. If you're afraid of getting hurt, well, you magic will protect you, and heal you up in no time! Plus, don't you want to fight back against those evil Invaders?"Alice pauses to consider this when suddenly a large warning klaxon can be heard throughout the halls."THIS IS AN INVADER ALERT! I REPEAT, THIS IS AN INVADER ALERT!" The intercom roars. "ALL STUDENTS REPORT TO THE NEAREST CLASSROOM AND STAY INSIDE AT ALL TIMES. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."Shit.>Make sure Alice gets to safety.>Go an engage the Invader right away!>Other

So, honestly, what's going on right now? Are we reliving a memory? Has Alice herself forgotten what's going on? Is this part of Loki's plan to recruit Alice again?
>>31031330Going to guess we are doing the memory regen.
>>31031330Probably doing the memory dive right now.
>>31031330Diving into her memories.
>>31031330Clearly a flashback. Maybe Merc feels tired today and want to do something kinda easy.
>>31031363>>31031361>>31031355>>31031353But could this hurt Alice? Could Alice become a magical girl again because of what's going on here? Should we be pushing Mirai to remember?
>>31031330>>31031390Maybe it's a memory regen. I think it kind of works like the Animus in the AC series.
>>31031363>>31031390We are going the Memory Regen Loki suggested.
>>31031390Too late, we already agreed to do the dive and memory restoration last thread.
>>31031390Unlikely. It seems to take a little more juice then this to bring her back to magical girldom. Last time took the dead remains of a companion injected into our system.
>>31031429Yeah, the new Mirai kind of felt that she would rather be with us in hell, than be alone in paradise.
Just started reading this and having read other MG series, is Alice or Mirai gay?
>>31031459Like most MG series, it's ambiguous.
>>31031459some voters here are trying to maker Alice a tsundere gay.
>>31031455Well there has to be something commendable in that respect.
>>31031459>AliceNo. She seems to be the only straight magical girl on /tg/ right now.>MiraiProbably. Statistically according to Egan there is alike a 75 percent chance or something like that.
>>31031471>>31031479>>31031487>>31031488From my experience most MG series they are lesbians.A tsundere lesbian?
>>31031520Alice is more PTSD ridden murder machine than magical girl at the moment. Still working on building up enough self confidence to think she's worth anything to somebody.
>>31031502>No. She seems to be the only straight magical girl on /tg/ right now.For now.I sense a conspiracy that we cocked blocked Alice only close male friend, since the rest of her former friends are girls
>>31031520More bi.She really likes her leo.
>>31031566I honestly can't see Alice trying for anybody given her stability. Leo was a possibility mainly because he was around her so much and saw her cry. The others only remember her as a magical girl and be slightly insane.
>>31031568Didn't she say she's not into that?Didn't she told Egan and the Nurse that she doesn't swing that way?
>>31031568>>31031566and the anon, that want their fucking yuri, decides that they want alice to be gay by pairing the closes male to Egan.
>>31031566We didnt actually cock block him.More we made her give encouragement to her best friend to go after him.
>>31031520Its motherhood, she skipped romance altogether.
>>31031604Actually, the goal is getting both egan and leo. Leo as the damn harem protag.
>>31031211As much as you wanted to go out and fight the Invader, you knew it was also your duty to keep everybody around you safe. You grab Alice's hand and pull her out of the stall. "Come on, we need to get you somewhere safe!" You say."But-""No, the bathroom is NOT a safe place." You shake your head. "Come with me!"You peek out of the door and see students scrambling to go find a classroom. You see one door still open and push Alice into the hall."Room 104!" You hiss at her, pointing at the door. "Go!"Alice nods wordlessly and sprints for the door. You wryly notice Loki stashing himself away in her backpack. Sneaky little guy. With Alice off somewhere safe, you then feel the entire school rumble as if there were a massive impact. From what you can tell, it was coming from the gym.>Head straight over there.>Head up to the roof so you can get a better look first.>Other
>>31031641You think Merc is okay with that?
>>31031613Yeah. She didn't like that at all but she really couldn't say no just because of how she views herself.
>>31031645>Head straight over there.
>>31031645>Head up to the roof so you can get a better look first.Find the location.
>>31031645>Head up to the roof so you can get a better look first.
>>31031649What Merc is OK with and what anon will try are probably two very different things
>>31031645>Other>Contact other MGs, Jo! You there?
>>31031557>>31031613>>31031662Ah I see, She views herself as fucked up and her best friend who helped her likes the same guy that she has an interest in. Having this negative view on herself and wanting her best friend be happy (and is also less messed up then her) encouraged her, despite her own feeling.This relationship in a nutshell?
>>31031744Close.More she actually is fucked up and one of the few people who doesn't think she's shit likes her second in command who actually worries about her.
>>31031744Yep. About there.Alice needs to break down infront of leo soon and stutter something out. Shes quite over her head emotionally and that might give her a chance in the race.
Hmm I wonder if Carol could morph into a dude? There might be a CarolXAlice ending.
>>31031855The carolxalice ending is parenthood end.
>>31031645You figure you need to get a good look at what's going on first. You dash for the stairwell and run up to the roof, kicking open the normally locked door like it was made of toothpicks. You make your way to the gym, where you see a massive hole and crater from the asteroid impact. You squint to try and see if the Invader was still down there when you catch movement to the side. You leap away was massive, bug like legs shoot over the edge of the building, pulling up the main body of the Invader-EW EW EW EWWWWWWW, IT WAS A GIANT SPIDER! SOOOOOOO DISGUSTING!Wait! You're Heartlancer, not Mirai. Heartlancer isn't supposed to be afraid of anything! You take a deep breath and summon your signature the weapon, your namesake Heartlance. >Attack!>Try and lure the Invader away from the school.>Other
>>31031918>Try and lure the Invader away from the school.Where are we going to learn if the invader destroys the school?

>>31031943Yeah, lead the fight over to either the homework factory; gunpowder, ball bearing, and shrapnel factory; the museum of irreplaceable artifacts; or a FOX news building.
>>31031948Alice apparently cares for, and anyone feel free to correct me, Leo, her squad to a lesser extent, Egan and Carol, who is her daughter by dint of Egan mixing her DNA with an invaders.
>>31031918>Try and lure the Invader away from the school.
>>31031948Leo appears to have liked alice for a long while and alice has started feeling the same way too. Was just too shy and insecure to even attempt voicing anything.Well dating may be in the 'murrican way. Try it out? Still im seeing that leo still likes alice and theres that chance of the 3 way still.
>>31031981Someone's been watching Megas XLR.
>>31031990As well as Mirai, Kanako, and Mercy Heart.Probably her other Magical Girl former friends as well.She was able to keep those feelings contained well enough to hunt them down and brutally kill them, but the successful capture of Mirai and interactions with Carol seem to be breaking those emotional walls.
>>31031918>OtherSummon your other weapon, Spiked Shoes.
>>31031990She also cares a lot for her magical girl friends though she is perfectly willing to shoot them in the head if needed.
>>31032040>>31032064I knew I forgot something.
>>31032040>but the successful capture of Mirai and interactions with Carol seem to be breaking those emotional walls.Kind of. I mean if she is in a fight in general she is going to blow their brains out if given a chance. At the same time she won't if they seem to be wavering. Also guys I'm hoping we get some more scenes with Ivan. Rereading the old threads he seems pretty cool.
>>31032017Is that even possible?
>>31032122Merc isn't a fan so probably not. Although that info came from a game that was pretty much in the 1930s. So who knows.
>>31031918As much as you wanted to kill the damn thing, you remember that you're literally standing on top of your own school. If you weren't careful, you could bring down the entire roof on top of your fellow students' heads. No, you had to get this thing away to where it couldn't hurt anybody. You had two options. You could lure to the sports field, where you'd have more than enough room to maneuver, but it was on the other side of the school. There was an old flood channel that was much closer, but it was narrow and tight, not really making it an ideal place to fight an opponent like this.>Make a run for the sports field.>Go into the flood channel.>Other

>>31032219You decide to make a run for the sports field. It was a ways away, but you're confident that you can make it.Plus, fuck spiders. Fuck them to hell."HEY UGLY!" You yell at the Invader. "THIS WAY!"You then begin leaping and sprinting across the rooftops. All the while, you can hear the Invader's eight legs skittering and its mandibles chattering as it comes after you.EW.>roll 1d20
>>31032422You manage to stay ahead of the giant spider Invader, ducking and dodging whenever it tries to lunge at your or swipe its large clawed legs at you. You start gaining distance on it when it starts shooting sticky white stuff at you, which you then realize is its silk.GOD IT'S SO ICKY!Finally, with on final leap, you land in the middle of the sportsfield, your legs slamming into the soft grass. The Invader isn't too far behind, and you assume your fighting stance. The Invader approaches, chittering and clicking as it comes.>Attack the legs. That will slow it down.>Attack the head. You can take it down in one attack!>Attack the body. It's easier to hit.>Other

>>31032893The Invader sends its front legs swinging at you, but you bat them away with your Heartlance. You scowl, though. It should have cut through them like nothing. You figure that its exoskeleton made it tougher than normal Invaders. Guess you'd just have to go for the joints, then. Adjusting your aim, you wait for it to attack again, meeting the oncoming leg with your spear point, shearing the entire limb off.You smile as the Invader screams and backs off. However, that smile quickly disappears when the Invader spins around and shoots sticky white stuff at you.Damnit, you forgot it could do that.The big wad of silk slams against your Circle. Your magic barrier easily repels it, but it obscures your vision, giving the Invader a chance charge you. You can't dodge in time and a sweep of its leg sends you flying across the field, slamming into the football goal post and causing it to snap like a toothpick. Groaning, you see your Circle flickering weakling and wince. The state your defenses were in, you could NOT take another hit like that.>Continue the fight.>Lead the Invader further away and hope another MG will come back you up.>Other

Rolled 12>>31033046Damn, this was NOT going as planned. You thought you could've just slashed the things a couple times, pulled off your finisher, and call it a day. But nope, you had to have the luck of getting one of those "evolved" Invaders the other MGs were talking about.Man, you could almost hear Beez chastising you for your overconfidence.Knowing you can't fight this thing head on right now, you instead dash away. By this point, the streets should already be evacuated, so it'll give you plenty of room to dodge the Invader until either you Circle reforms, or a fellow MG or the military shows up.>roll 1d20

>>31033242You keep moving, staying ahead of the Invader. Thankfully, it's not too fast, so it's not too big of a problem outrunning it. You just have to stay close enough so it can keep its attention on you. The Invader resorts to firing wads of silk at you, but you easily dodge them. Things are going well until...You just stop.Blinking, you realize that you can't move. You struggle against what seem to be invisible bonds, until you realize what happened. The damn spider wasn't trying to hit you, it was setting up a trap! And like a dumb fly, you got caught in the web. You struggle with all your might, be even your Heartlance is caught up in the web, so you can't cut it. Things were looking really, really bad here.That is, until you notice the shadows begin to move. Suddenly, they seem to rise out up from the ground and shoot out at the Invader, wrapping around its legs and body and pinning it in place."Well it's about time, Shadowblade." You grunt. "What took you so long?""Hey, some of us have personal stuff to take care of, okay?" Your fellow Magical Girl Shadowblade steps out from a shadow portal. The shadow of a nearby lamp post then coils up around her body and forms a blade at her fingers, which she uses to cut you free of the web. "You're welcome, by the way.""Yeah yeah, thanks." You sigh. Goddamn, this silk was going to take FOREVER to get out of your hair! "Let's finish this bastard before the army takes credit, yeah?""Sure thing." Shadowblade nods.However, before the both of you can do anything, you hear somebody shout out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ4i199cQ-4"RAINBOW SLASH!"And suddenly the Invader EXPLODES into magical confetti. "Did you do that?" You blink."No, wasn't me." Shadowblade shakes her head."Hey! Who's out there!" You call out.>roll 1d20
>>31033473And we burned all the luck to get jackpot.
>>31033473You hear a surprised squeak, and a flash of black and red."Damn! She's running!" You blink. "Why would she run?""Maybe she's shy?" Shadowblade shrugs. "I mean, remember when you couldn't bear to be seen in public in your costume, even though we have glamour spells so people wouldn't recognize you?""Hehe, yeah..." You nod and then blink.

You suspect that you were dealing with a newbie, who didn't know how to deal with her suddenly increased strength and agility yet. Sure enough, you see a black and red costumed girl who seemed to have run head first into a tree."Ow ow ow ow ow..... fucking cat never told me it would be this hard..." She groans.Yep, definite newbie. Hell, she didn't even have her glamour spell up. You grab the girl's shoulder and spin her around."Hey, just what do you-"And you pause when you realize you're looking right at Alice."Alice?" You blink."Yeah..." Alice looks away, her cheeks reddening."OHMYGOSH you did accept after all!" You smile and hug your new friend."I just saw the spider wailing on your and... well..." Alice grumbles. "I thought I should help somehow.""Well, you did pretty good for a newbie, if you could oneshot an Invader like that."

>>31033701You do realize that we've been basically making the memories, right now, for this quest.The only the things we're doing is deciding who came up with the name here, Alice or Mirai.
Rolled 11>>31033730Mirai comes up with JACKPOT.Alice blanches and justs goes with Kaleidoscope
>>31033669"Hmmmm, I now! How about Magical Girl JACKPOT!" You suggest."....that sounds stupid." Alice says flatly."Yeah, I gotta agree with her there." Shadowblade nods in agreement.Wow, that hurt more than it should have."Hm, well, Magical Girls usually name themselves based on their weapons, right?" Alice looks down at the two crystal daggers in her hands, glittering with prismatic light, which was a great contrast to her red and black costume."How about Kaleidoscope?"Well, that wasn't bad, actually. "Okay, then it's settled." You nod. "From now on, you're MAGICAL GIRL KALEIDOSCOPE!""Um, yay?" Alice blinks. "Well, we'd better get back to school." You say, taking Alice's hand. "By the way, in case you didn't know, this girl here is Joanna. She goes to the same school we do.""Um, hi, Joanna- I mean- Shadowblade." Alice waves nervously."Yo. Looks like we're gonna be friends from now on." Shadowblade shakes Kaleidoscope's hand. "Guess that makes us an official team now, right?""Right!" You nod cheerfully.---"How long has it been?""18 hours.""Are they-""They're both physically fine. We've been checking brain activity, too. EEG readings are all active, with a lot of spikes of activity at regular intervals.""So how long is this going to last.""No idea. All we can do is wait."---"PIERCING HEART!" You scream."SHADOW STRIKE!" Shadowblade yells."RAINBOW SLASH!" Kaleidoscope adds in.And just like that, another Invader shrieks and explodes into meaty chunks."Jeez, is it me, or are these things getting tougher?" Shadowblade pants."Yeah... never thought it would take three finishing moves to kill one!" You nod, equally out of breath.However, Kaleidoscope remains silent."Hey, Kal, is something the matter?" You blink."Oh... nothing." Kaleidoscope shakes her head. "I was just... thinking about stuff.">What stuff?>Come on, let's go home.>Other
Rolled 16>>31033848>>What stuff?
>>31033848>What stuff?Time to find out you're in a dream.
>>31033848"What stuff?" You ask.""Hmmm, it's just... I don't know. You ever get the feeling Loki and Beezlebub aren't telling us everything? That they're always holding something back?""Kal, we've being over this already." You sigh. Honestly, these past couple of years, you've noticed Alice steadily becoming more withdrawn and paranoid, as if she was regressing back to her old pre-MG self. She had never really fully trusted Loki, and didn't really get along too well with Beezlebub either. You wonder what was going on with her. You've been over to her house multiple times, but you've never noticed anything wrong domestically. "Kal, you're thinking too hard about this stuff." You sigh. >Invite her over to your place. Maybe you two can talk this out.>Recommend she go home and sleep it off.>Other
>>31033954>Invite her over to your place. Maybe you two can talk this out.
Rolled 10>>31033954>>Invite her over to your place. Maybe you two can talk this out.
Rolled 3>mfw we're setting these flags for possible alicexmiraiNot sure if want
Rolled 1>>31034003I don't want it, still want the Leo route
>>31033987....leo's getting another member to his harem then.
>>31033987I really don't care what Alice's orientation is as long as whatever romance develops is organic and vaguely interesting.LeoxAlice is cute, but I like MiraixAlice as well. First one still has more character growth behind it thougj.
>>31033954"Damn, it's getting pretty damn late." You sigh, as you check your watch. "Hey Kal, how about you stay over at my place tonight? It's Friday anyways, so I don't think either of our parents would mind."Mmmmm, I really shouldn't." Alice frowns."PLEEEAAAAAASE?" You resort to the puppy eyes."Okay! Okay!" She chuckles. "Well I'll leave you two lovebirds to it, then." Joanna shakes her head. "I got volleyball practice tomorrow morning."With that, Joanna gives you both a farewell wave as she melds into the shadows."Come on, Kal!" Both you and Alice bound and leap your way back to your house, stopping short to transform back into your normal forms before entering."Oh, welcome home, Mirai." You mom says in her pleasant tone."Hi, Mom, can Alice stay over, tonight?" You ask."Of course she can!" Your mom nods. "Good, because I already brought her over!" You chuckle as you pull Alice into view."Hi, Mrs. Thompson." Alice says meekly. You then pull Alice upstairs to your room, where you sit both sit cross legged on your bed."Okay Alice," You say, putting a rare serious edge to your voice. "what's going on? You've been acting really strange, lately.""Well..." Alice bites her lip and her eyes dart around. "Beezlebub isn't here, is he?""No, I think he's staying over at Jo's place at the moment." You blink. "Why?""Nothing. Just asking." Alice sighs. "I've just sort of been thinking, why exactly are we fighting?""Well, to defeat the Invaders, of course." "But... why did they come here? Why Earth? If they're so interested in humans, why do they always home in on MGs and Companions? And why won't Loki or Beezlebub ever answer any questions about why they're here?""Huh, I never really thought about those things..." You frown. "I guess it just never occurred to me.""It doesn't add up." Alice mutters. "The Companions are up to something.">That's rubbish. You're imagining things.>You might be onto something...>Other
Rolled 8>>31034138>>That's rubbish. You're imagining things.
>>31034138>You might be onto something...
>>31034043Leo is going to end up with all these unwanted women at this rateEx magical girls, scientists, troopersIt would be fucking hilarious
>>31034138>>You might be onto something...
>>31034138>That's rubbish. You're imagining things.
>>31034138>That's rubbish. You're imagining things.Then again, his name IS Beelzebub. And fucking Loki.>You might be onto something...
>>31034138>you might be onto something
>>31034138>That's rubbish. You're imagining things.This may lead something more interesting later on.
Rolled 5>>31034138>>That's rubbish. You're imagining things.
>>31034138"That's rubbish. You're imagining things!" You chuckle. "Come on, Alice, you can't seriously think that the Companions are against us, are you?""Well, not exactly..." Alice frowns. "Let's just get some sleep, and we'll figure out in the morning." You sigh. Honestly, you didn't know what was up with Alice. You hope this was just a phase she was going though. "Y-yeah. Let's do that." Alice sighs as she rubs her head, as if she had a headache.After a quick round of rock papers scissors, Alice wins the right to use the bathroom first. As you wait for your turn, you feel a slight breeze. Weird, did you leave the window open?""Greetings, Mirai." You hear Beezlebub's voice. "How did today's battle go?""Ah, it was pretty rough." You sigh as you flop down on your bed. "Took all three of us to take it down, but only barely.""I see, I see." Beezlebub nods. "I've also heard from Joanna that Alice has been acting... strangely. Is this true?">Yeah, she's seems to be under the impression you have ulterior motives. Funny, huh?>No, she didn't say anything like that to me.>Other
>>31034302>No, she didn't say anything like that to me.Avoid the question
>>31034302>Yeah, she's seems to be under the impression you have ulterior motives. Funny, huh?
>>31034302>No, she didn't say anything like that to me.
Rolled 7>>31034302>>Yeah, she's seems to be under the impression you have ulterior motives. Funny, huh?
>>31034302>No, she didn't say anything like that to me.No real reason to tell on a friend.
>>31034302>>No, she didn't say anything like that to me.
>>31034302>>Yeah, she's seems to be under the impression you have ulterior motives. Funny, huh?
Rolled 8>>31034302>>Yeah, she's seems to be under the impression you have ulterior motives. Funny, huh?
>>31034412>>31034406>>31034370>>31034333>>31034318>>31034315>>31034311why you putting our friend under the sniper sights?
>>31034302"Yeah, she seems to be under the impression that you have ulterior motives." You laugh. "Funny, huh?""Oh yes, such a shame." Beezlebub nods. "It seems like Loki's 'Grand Experiment' is an utter failure, as I warned him it would be.""Huh? What are you talking about?" You blink."Unfortunately, it appears that Alice has Invaders in her nose." Beezlebub says nonchalantly."....what?" You blink. Not because you didn't understand what he was saying. No, because you understood EXACTLY what he was saying."As I have said before. Alice has Invaders in her nose." Beezlebub walks off to your room's open window. "I need to discuss this with my fellow brothers. I trust you can handle things here.""Yeah... I can do that." You nod."Good. I'll be seeing you then, Mirai." Beezlebub says as he hops out of the window and into the night.Well, no time to waste. This was an extremely serious matter. You get up from your bed and start making your way to the bathroom. Alice had Invaders in her nose, which meant there was only one thing you could do.You would have to kill her.>And that's it for tonight! I was hoping we could get a bit farther but that unexpected delay had to strike! Anyways, catch the next thread next week, and don't forget PJ Witches on Friday and Cyberpunk Idol on Saturday!
Rolled 9>>31034433Because Heartlancer is a cute heartstrong and naive girl.
Rolled 9>>31034441But its nowhere as severe a case as ewoks in the nose.
>>31034433Cause that's what we think Mirai would've done
>>31034441fucking subliminal message
>>31034441Such is the cost of trying to be in-character.
>>31034441Yeah, we got mindbroken into doing this haven't we?On the other hand, at least present Mirai is going to realise there is something REALLY wrong with what just happened here.
>>31034441Would you kindly?
>>31034457Think about this. When we've cleared her head of all... this.Think how shitty she's going to feel. How much suffering she's going to go through. She'll be clear headed We hope for the first time in a long time. With a little with all these memories intact.
>>31034441Great thread, Merc. See ya next time.
>>31034441Is 'Invaders in your Nose' some sort of trigger word?
well well well...looks like anons stupidity fucks them up once again. Did you enjoy the ass fucking~
>>31034484>With a littleWith a little luck, that is.
>>31034484As mentioned above, she'll at least have a friend in Hell instead of being alone in Paradise.
>>31034494...you do realize that this is a flashback and that it's been well established Alice and the other MGs didn't exactly part on favorable terms?
Rolled 8>>31034494This is a predetermined fact.All MGs backstabbed the world, you know.
>>31034494You really don't get it? This was going to happen in shape or from, now or later, what we do here isn't going to change the past or the present.
>>31034494These flashback missions have constants and variables. Some things MUST happen, other things MAY happen.
Rolled 18>>31034488Wedge Antilles hops on one transparisteel leg
>>31034441>Back from work early because I'm drowning in free hours>"Oooh, MG Hunter, Mirai's perspective!">Have to kill Alice.No Mirai, don't do it, she is your friend!
