You are a Magical Girl, and you're on your way to one of two ceremonies that need your attendance as Warmaster of the Ninth Officio. The first is a certification ceremony for a Vindicare squad freshly minted from the rigorous one-year advanced training course; the other a solemn proceeding to mark the passing of fellow magical girls, aptly named the Remembrance Ceremony. This is, of course, after two glasses of Kong Whisky - chased by a handful of strong mints to get rid of the tell-tale scent of liquor tainting your breath - as well as calling up your Incubator and telling him of your choice of personal heraldry. And the mutant bastard cat was actually surprised that you replied so soon, just after sending Enishi to remind you - he'd expected your response to take a week at least.You didn't reply to that, of course, or offer a reaction. The both of you knowing full well what this meant.Your transformation from negligent, drunkard and unreliable rank-and-file Vindicare to negligent, drunkard and somewhat-reliable watch-wearing dildo is now complete.It took a surprising amount of self-restraint for you not to trash your office in a blind rage at the realization of it. It took you considerably more not to drain the entire bottle of Kong.Things like these tend to color your attitude.
>>31135554Anyway. You're out of your office, you have your symbol of office - the Warmaster hat - firmly secured on top of your head. Your Desert Eagle strapped to your side via a shoulder holster, and the bangles secured around your wrists, underneath your costume's sleeves. More or less you're set to look like the part Kyuubey chose for you. Or Mami chose for you. You're not sure which of them did, to be honest - but you know you didn't ask for this.You have a bit of time to drag someone you know from whatever they're doing and accompany you. For...moral support, or something. It'd be nice to have someone you know with you, this is your first time officiating this kind of thing, after all.Or you could just power through this alone. Show everyone you're a big girl and everything.Take Sayaka with you.Take Midori with you.Take Omegon with you.Go solo.
>>31135559Take Sayaka with you.Shes been rank leader for a few weeks right? She can probably help.
>>31135559>[X]Take Omegon with you.She'll keep up straight, we've been meaning to check in with her anyway.And there's no better of of dealing with your nervousness than giving yourself a bigger reason to be nervous.Hey, maybe she can suggest an better squad name?
>>31135559>[x]Take Sayaka with you.She's our equarry. It's her job to do this shit. I think.
>>31135559>[X]Take Midori with you.Because
>>31135559[x]Take Midori with you.
>>31135559Omegon? Why on earth?[x] Sayaka. She has shit she need to be telling us. Also will veto any stupid idea we have hopefully.
>>31135588>It's her jobHer JOB is to never trust us to do something properly worth a damn and keep us from fucking up too badly.Incidently, that's also Kyoko's job, with the addendum that she needs to do the same for Sayaka.Frankly, I figure the pair of them will probably be there anyway.
>>31135559>[x]Take Sayaka with you.Better to make her look the part of Equerry.
>>31135559>[X]Take Sayaka with you.
>>31135603>Omegon? Why on earth?Because we don't hang with her anywhere near enough.
>>31135554[x]Other Grab a random girl we pass by and force her to listen to us ramble incoherently. Should help our image a little.
>>31135605Kyoko's job is to make sure we don't fuck up our relationships too horribly, including with Sayaka. Between the 3 of us we make one decent human being.
>>31135559[X] Go Solo for Certification.[X] Midori for Remembrance. While support would be nice, we'll need the real support in far darker places and deeper pits than this. Vindicares usually go it alone in the end. Midori should be with us for the Rememberance though; we should mention that.
>>31135559>[X]Take Omegon with you.Because why not?
>>31135559[X] Take Omegon with youThe name!ing ceremony isn't important but the remembrance is, it will be a major chance to get her to not hate is as much
>>31135559>[x]Take Sayaka with you.Why not. Should be good for a laugh when we choose the squad's name.
>>31135559>[x]Take Sayaka with you.>[x] Take midori with you.Take both. Be flanked.
>>31135637>it will be a major chance to get her to not hate is as muchThe fact she hates Chiaki loud and out in the open is at least half of why Chiaki likes her.It doesn't feel right to her when people are being all nicey-nicey suck-uppy.Omegon, we can trust to tell us straight exactly how and why we've fucked up.
>>31135559>[x]Take Sayaka with you.She's Equerry after all, and Midori would have more tongs wagging.
>>31135559[X] Take Midori with you.
>>31135649>>Take both. Be flanked.Considering they're both the same height, it would be a pretty amusing mental image. At any rate, the current voting period is closed. Thanks for participating, everyone!
>>31135662Them tongs are wagging with abandon already.
>>31135559>Take Sayaka with you.>Take Midori with you.equerry and sexcretary
>>31135662>tongs waggingI don't know whether to mock the spelling or ignore it and make some kind of french-kissing joke.
>>31135683Dammit, leave Midori out of this. She's not in the command structure (yet).We're here as Warmaster, not Chiaki.
>>31135700Remembrance is above and beyond rank.
>>31135559Missed the vote, damnit.I hope the option for Omegon was not a subtle hint that we need a culexus due to interference from Pinky or something.
>>31135700Actually, she's training people. She is part of the command structure, just not a very high part.
>>31135658Yes but we also need to get her to not despis us for how she perceives us still by shpwing we do care about the people who fight alongside us and those who are dead even if we have forgotten them and to stop being such a damned shut in, so dragging her to these ceremonies where probably Kyouko will be whether wheelchair bound or not and Sayaka will help push that along some more hopefullyShe can still tell us directly and honestly where we fuck up and we might even rely on her for such since Sayaka still is somewhat tsundere towards us and can't be trusted to be properly impartial but she will be more inclined to agree when we ask her to do something instead of just giving us a Wendy special and walking away
>>31135721Yeah, but she's not in the Warmaster's Office.Which, for the record, she would have been, as a secretary.regret dem choices!
>>31135674Missed the vote too. I'm actually for Midori just because she knows about Pinky, but ah well.Omegon sounds good too, but I guess that can wait until we save Oriko(or make a good effort to).....guys, we should talk to Pinky soon, I'm getting scared.
>>31135744I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just be cool, honey bunny.
>>31135755Honey bunny, right. Bunnies? Rabbits? Moon Rabbits? Pinky feasting on Moon Rabbits? OH GOD NOT THOSE TEETH
>>31135744What's the worst that could happen?
>>31135744Wont mind stopping by to chat with pinky.
Don't forget what the hat does to us guys, we better keep our cool.
>>31136012Have we ever put the hat on Pinky?
>>31136030Yeah. Not a good idea.
>>31136030Maybe?But seriously though, how long has it been since the hat has been involved in sex?
>>31136030>>31136035>>31136041>>31136062Pinky more or less put the hat on herself when we asked her about it. But yea, never again, we almost got a mouthful of sharp teeth.
>>31136062>how long has it been since the hat has been involved in sex?better question. When was the last time Chiaki almost got some?
>>31135582 >>31135588 >>31135606 >>31135609You decide to take Sayaka along with you for the ceremonies. If there's anyone whou could keep you serious during both of them, it'll be your Equerry. You remember her as someone who attended this kind of thing regularly too, even before becoming Eversor Rank Leader - you'd be able to catch hints from her about how to go about these things, hints that Mami didn't have time to give you.You find your Equerry, predictably, in Kyoko's infirmary floor room, and as you burst in to drag her out - it's here that you take a brief moment to stop and blink. Despite the fact that she'd been on the same mission as you, for the majority of last night and this morning - Sayaka doesn't even look sleepy or tired. In fact, she looks like she'd just punched in for work, after a good night's sleep, a long shower and a hearty breakfast. ...And speaking of breakfast, you've burst in on her feeding it to her temporarily-dismembered better half. The latter grinning and greeting you energetically as you come into view. You return the greeting yourself as you take your hat off, tucking it under your arm."For fuck's sake, Murderface," Your blue-haired Equerry snaps at you, one ungloved hand holding what appears to be a spoonful of rice and fried egg to Kyoko's mouth, and the other held underneath said spoon. "Fucking knock next time, I almost made a mess here."...Yeah. Sorry about that, you apologize. Sayaka grunts here, shaking her head mildly as Kyoko opens her mouth obediently to give the food airplane permission to land. Even saying 'Aaah' as she does so, like an obedient child."What're you doing here, then? Aren't you supposed to be going to that certification ceremony?" The blue-haired Eversor glances up at the dial clock on the room's wall. "That's in fifteen minutes, right? You don't want to be late for that, Murderface, they'll be expecting you."You know that, yeah. She doesn't need to remind you.[1/2]
>>31136074What do you mean, almost?She put a minor daemon in the hat, admitted it herself.
>>31136084"Yeah, sure." Blueberry smirks here, carefully arranging another spoonful of food. "Because if you're here to challenge Kyoko to another Cripple Joust, then I'm throwing you out on your ass." "Aw, we can't really do that, though." Kyoko pipes up, slightly crestfallen. "Battlefield ain't level, I'm the only one who counts as a cripple." It's here that she giggles. "Hey, next time someone needs to get their limbs chopped off, you be it, Murderface, okay? I already did my turn!"Hah. Well. Maybe."Fat fucking chance." Sayaka's voice has a cold, forbidding tone to it, but the almost-tender way she's feeding Kyoko now throws that into almost hilarious contradiction. "Even if Murderface gets atomized and the only bits of her we can carry back here are her glasses, there's not going to be any Cripple Jousting. Ever.""But that's no fun at all!" Kyoko complains from her bed, opening her mouth again for the next spoonful."That's what I'm here for," Your blue-haired Equerry smiles. "To kill all fun from the world until there is nothing left but non-fun." It's here that she looks up at you from her seat beside Kyoko's bed. "No, seriously, Murderface. What're you here for?"How do you respond?Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.Dodge the matter. Tell her you need to talk to her for a second in private, before dragging her away to the ceremonies.
>>31136092>[X]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.
>>31136092>[x]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.
>>31136092>[X]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies."You're slacking, Blueberry.How are you going to keep me from fucking up everything for everyone forever if you're here feeding Kyoko?"
>>31136092>[X]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.But I don't want to break up this scene.
>>31136092>[x]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies."Seriously, I can barely remember what goes on at these things, and I can't remember the last one I went to."
>>31136092>[x]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.I see no reason to lie here, Sayaka'd only get pissed
>>31136092[X]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.Phrase it good somehow though. Ask her help to make sure you dont screw up during your first ceremony and accidentally dishonor the dead or somesuch.
>>31136092>[x]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.Why lie?
>>31136092>[X]Tell the truth. You'd like her to accompany you for the ceremonies.Be polite about this.Can we bring Kyoko along?
>>31136092[X]Tell the truth.Mention we didn't expect to find her playing housewife, but we could really use someone to keep us on track.
>>31136092>Dodge the matter"How do you keep GOING? I feel like downing a couple of bottles and sleeping in my chair."
>>31136090Faust said she sealed in Slaanesh into the Hat.Slaanesh is from W40K. A Chaos God of Pleasure, Passion, Decadence, Lust, Pride and Self-indulgence.Presumably she is not quite as strong in this story though, as she is in Warhammer.
>>31136200I know. Didn't feel it worth mentioning. Slannesh technically hasn't fully bust onto the scene yet, didn't in 40K until the 30th Millennium.
>>31136200>Faust said she sealed in Slaanesh into the Hat.She implied it, but never actually said Slaanesh.It's obviously intended as a nod in that direction but doesn't actually have to be a "thing".
>>31136109 >>31136111 >>31136117 >>31136120You don't see the point of beating around the bush, here, so you'll just come out and say it: you're here to drag Sayaka from this picture-perfect, husband-and-wife scene to accompany you to these damned ceremonies. Not that you really want to break up the said scene, and all.At this, you get a sight of just how different the couple are, and at the same time how perfect they are for each other. Both of them immediately go red at the exact same time as a reaction - but where Sayaka's is spiced with a deepening scowl, Kyoko's is lightened with a bashful grin and an embarrassed laugh."...Well, at least you're honest about it." Sayaka says finally after a few moments, her obviously displeased scowl softening somewhat. It's here that she takes the plate of food from her lap and places it on Kyoko's own. "I want you to finish this, alright? Follow everything the nurses say. I don't want to hear about you not taking your medicine because it's bitter. Only kids do that.""Yeah, yeah." Kyoko shakes her head. "Alright, already, I get it! I'm not a kid anymore!" It's here that her voice drops to a murmur. "An' you're embarrassin' me in front of Murderface!" Sayaka glances at you for the briefest of moments, before turning back to the red-haired Eversor. "So? It's only Murderface. You have to heal up properly, alright? No more of that Maximum nonsense until you're cleared for active duty again."It's...it's 'only' Murderface?Fine, Sayaka's said a lot of uncharitable things about you in the past - and within earshot, too - but that sounded as if you didn't matter at all. It hurt just as much as 'watch-wearing dildo'."...Yeah, okay." Kyoko murmurs, looking down and starting on her breakfast. You see Sayaka smile here, before leaning forward and placing a kiss on her partner's cheek. It's here, too, that you catch her whispering something into the Eversor's ear, one that makes Kyoko go as red as...well, her own hair. [1/2]
>>31136506"Let's go," Your Equerry suddenly announces, pulling her cape off of the back of her chair and clipping the collar around her neck with a couple of clear, metallic snaps. She steps past you, quick and agile, and it takes you a moment to catch up."Sorry about the delay, needed to square things away before leaving." Sayaka pulls her gloves back on with smooth, practiced movements, the gestures almost hypnotizing in their efficiency. "We've got eight minutes to get there. We'll probably make it with two minutes to spare." She looks back at you with a quizzical look. "Honestly, I thought you had this in the bag, Warmaster." She makes a meal out of the title, almost snarling it, but in a rather playful way.How do you react?This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.How are you still upright? Are you sneaking stimulants or something? Teach me your secrets.When are you getting married?
>>31136516When are you getting married? The housewife thing kinda suits you. Better than bitching, at least
>>31136516[x] When are you getting married.
>>31136516>How are you still upright? Are you sneaking stimulants or something? Teach me your secrets.It's love, isn't it?
>>31136516[X]This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.
>>31136516>[X]This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.>[X]When are you getting married?"And yeah, is there going to be an open bar at the reception?"
>>31136516[x] When are you getting married?
>>31136516>[x]When are you getting married?Deadpan.
>>31136516>[x]This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.
>>31136516[X]Other"Of course I have this in the bag. But you're my equerry and that means it would be remiss to let you skip on such an important occasion."Throw the whole responsibility shit back in her blueberry face, see how she likes it.
>>31136516>This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.>When are you getting married?Gib both
>>31136516[X] How are you still upright?
>>31136516"Honestly? I'd rather have dragged Midori along. Or Kyoko.Hell, even Omegon would have been preferable.But these are our duties, right?What's a good squad name, anyway? I was thinking of something like "misapplied morality"
>>31136516>[x]This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want."I haven't read the relevant sections of the Primer yet, and I can't remember how these are supposed to go. At least, not the Kharn way, anyway."
>>31136516>[x]How are you still upright? Are you sneaking stimulants or something? Teach me your secrets.>>31136534is probably right
>>31136516[X]Other>"Of course I have this in the bag. But you're my equerry and that means it would be remiss to let you skip on such an important occasion."
>>31136516[X]This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.I have a bad feeling about the marriage option.
>>31136589>But you're my equerry and that means YOU would be remiss to let ME skip on such an important occasion.and that's exactly what's gonna happen, because if someone isn't here to make me go I'm going back to the Warmaster's office and getting trashed on gasolene.
>>31136516[x] Other"The Warmaster and her Equerry should be at these sorts of things, right? And I'm going to pass some names by you, make sure they're good."Karyu or an Imperial Japanese carrier name.And Culture names are amusing once, then become embarrassing, like tattoos gotten during adolescence and then they look terrible later.
>>31136516>[X]This is my first time. After this, I'll let you play housewife with Kyoko for as long as you want.
>>31136616>This is my first time.please be gentle with us Sayaka-san
>>31136516>How are you still upright? Are you sneaking stimulants or something? Teach me your secrets.>When are you getting married?
>>31136614Thinking kaiju names.Differentiate the naming from the previous times.
>>31136614The Gravitas ones weren't *that* bad.
>>31136677I still like Extreme Gravitas just as a fuck you to koobs
>>31136516I'm kinda shocked she didn't win, actually.Maybe a little sad, too. Don't tell the other Wendyfags.
>>31136685Then tell QB that thats what we named them when he asks, don't actually inflict it on some random bystanders because you have some sort of hateboner for mutant cats.
>>31136663Honestly?We should gun for something more heroic, IMO.We're trying to be different and all that, so why not a visible shift in policy to reflect that?Not that I'm trying to get squads named after Kamen Riders/Super Sentai teams or anything...
>>31136685>just as a fuck you to koobsWhile disappointing Mami, further confirming to the Officio that their leader can't be relied on and that maybe they should jump ship, and giving a bunch of girls names that they'll hate for the last few months of their lives.
>>31136685Not at the expense of the new girls.Team Gorgon?Their sight paralyses their enemies.
I was hoping for some Imperial Japanese Navy names for the team.If not, how about Team Defiant
I thought we decided on Squad Excessive Gravitas, or just Squad Gravitas
>>31136663>kaiju namesBut kaiju are meant to be defeated, and always lose in the end.And as for Godzilla, he may have been fearsome and terrifying in the first two movies, but then he got really campy and more of a parody.
>>31136718I still feel like calling them Squad Monoxide.
Do we have time to look over their files and/or talk to them before naming them?
>>31136727Nah, Decu gave a brief description of squad name themes a while back. Honestly, I'm hoping we get a list of possible names to avoid /tg/ naming really
>>31136506This shows just how much more Kyouko likes us now, back in the second thread she threatened to gut us when we brought up their relationship.
>>31136714>>31136718If it were something like Rabid Beavers i could understand you both but Its not a blatantly bad name and still gives koobs some salt.
>>31136749Same here.Or atleast a few good options, with a chance for Other, in case someone can invent something better.
By bringing up the squad name to Sayaka, I was hoping I'd give Decu the chance to make some appropriate suggestions.On the other hand, I've got a pretty good idea of the kind of naming suggestions that Sayaka would make, and squad "Fuck You Murderface" doesn't really have an authentic Vindicare ring to it.
>>31136749Its like you don't even enjoy Chiakis awful naming sense.
>>31136690Well, we chose Midoris artwork as our new heraldry. That should go some distance to filling her happiness quota of the week.
>>31136785No, I don't.
>>31136727I prefer to give them a better squad name that.Squad Souryuu or something
still better than Kharns.
I still like giant decapitating skeleton of hunger monster as a name whose name I forgot
Squad Enenra? There's enough in Japanese mythology that's suitable.
>>31136820What is it and your Boner for IJN warships?Do you spend your Time Fapping to Kancolle or Aoki Hagane?
>>31136883It's the naming scheme for Vindicare Squads as said by Decu.
>>31136690I know. I am Nonon levels of disappoint.
Kill SatAmatsuGoldieGhostJust Enough GravitasViridArsenalMeteorStardust
Squad:Rogue ChariotSable FlameSilver StagSilver StaffVelvet HammerGolden Spade
>>31136883Prior naming scheme, the fact that it's an easy source of not-terrible Japanese names.
>>31136882Yeah that thing.
>>31136916In that case, are any of the following already taken?AyanamiShikinamiSohryuLangley (american)Makinami
>>31136882Squad HeikeSquad Hidarugami
>>31136986Well? were they?
>>31136959I'm not Decu, and I can't remember what the already-named squad names were. Why are you asking me?
>>31136892A little disappointed but, eh... I figure we can finally get some Midori when we get back to the apartment later
>>31136516God dammit, where's Dan Kim giving us graphic depiction of Murderface bashfuly going "this is my first time" when we need him?
>>31137013This kind of cuteness is going to end me one day, are you prepared to be a killer hat-chan?
>Japanese navy names>not Squad YamatoC'mon, you know you want to.
>>31137044Yamato overratedNagato sounds betterOr we could have Squad Albacore
>>31137013>I figure we can finally get some Midori when we get back to the apartment laterHopefully, yeah!
>>31137044Might send mixed messages; as far as I understand, Yamato is an old word for Japan, and when applied to girls, would probably mean highly traditional, be-good-wives girls*. I'm not an expert on Japanese culture, but I suspect Yamato could send the wrong message.*Ever hear of the term Yamato Nadeshiko?
How about using gun names for Vindicare squads, and sword names for Eversor squads?We can call these guys the Glocks.
>>31137099That is a terrible idea.What if they all use sub-machineguns or something?Liable to get confusing.
>>31137099>We can call these guys the Glocks.Because they tend to explode a lot?
>>31137099Vetoed. Especially "Glocks". It sounds terrible.
>>31137099>>31137110>>31137123Squad Barrett sounds pretty badass though.
>>31137099Squad Mosin Nagant charge, Squad Sabre is providing covering fire
>>31137099>>31137099>Squad MagnumYes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
>>31137119"Well, you've got the Glocks who use uzis. The Katana's, who wield axes. The Uzi's who use Kalashnakovs and at that point they all ganged up to kill the Wasmaster before she could inflict any more of these terrible names.">>31137135at least they get an automatic theme tune out of it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OTvTv0EgIg
>>31137135https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OTvTv0EgIgWithout a doubt this will be the Squad with the biggest swag. They might even outswag Chiaki.
>>31137168>implying that isn't HER squad. Of one.
>>31137119They're the explosives squad, right?>>31137117Squads should in general never really be known for their weapons, unless they've earned a name for themselves. Gives them a better chance if the enemies don't know what they're about at a moment's notice.
One wonders if we could have read the profile of the new Vindicare team beforehand to decide on a name, oh well, I think its too late for that
>>31137161>Kharns naming patter:Squad Kill!Squad Maim!Squad Burn!* exclamation marks are part of the name
>>31137124A few might, but it sounds... uncreative and inelegant to just blatantly copy weapon names. It's naming them after their tools, instead of naming them for something impressive.

"Housewife thing suits you. Better than being a bitch, at least.""...Pushing it, Murderface," Sayaka replies after a slight pause - the pause itself, along with the slightly chilly tone in her voice, already telling you that you've drawn blood. "But if you have to know, not for a while yet. We're making plans, but not until some stuff are squared away." You continue to struggle to keep up with her long, energetic strides. Fucking Eversors. "Need to get everything squared away first before we can do something like that."Right. You can understand that, despite your limited experience with...the finding a better half to spend the rest of your life with, and everything. You open your mouth to ask a question, but Sayaka answers before you could actually spit it out."Yes, you'll be invited. Against my better judgement, you have to be." The blue-haired Eversor sighs. "Kyoko likes you too much for me to conveniently forget to put you on the invitations list." A pause. "No open bar, though. Certainly no hard liquor, either. Just beer."...Well. You're actually offended, here. It's not like you'll be aiming to get wasted during your best friend's wedding, either. Tipsy, maybe, but not wasted."..." Sayaka looks askance at you, before nodding. "That'll do."The both of you continue to walk towards your destination - and you reach it quickly enough, with two minutes to spare, just like she predicted. It's the Officio's General Assembly Hall, a large conference room used mainly for all-hands meetings, important announcements, and rank-wide gatherings like certification ceremonies. The both of you stop just by the doors, and you could hear the hushed chatter coming from behind them.[1/2]
>>31137352"Right. Put your hat on." Sayaka nods as she reaches forward with both hands, straightening your collar, then your bow tie, before patting away imaginary dust and lint from your shoulders. "Relax, but don't look casual. Walk straight, eyes forward. I'll be escorting you down the center aisle - they've set up your throne where the podium should be, and that's where you'll be sitting until the ceremony proper has to begin."You don your hat as you try to remember - and internalize - the instructions your Equerry is telling you. Suddenly finding your throat dry in...what? Nervousness? Stage fright?It must have shown on your face, because Sayaka smiles here. Not unkindly. "It's just a certification ceremony, Murderface. Take it easy. You look fine." She reaches up and adjusts your hat. "Just act like your normal self. You can do that, right?"Yeah. You think so."Right." It's here that Sayaka suddenly yawns from behind a gloved hand. "Guh. Can't wait till Kyuubey lets me punch out. Almost falling asleep here."...Wait. Really? But she looks just like--"Eversor tricks, idiot." The blue-haired Eversor smirks, before taking her place beside you. "It's easy enough, though, even if you're just a Vindicare. You just have to get good."Fucking bitch."Thank you." Sayaka's smirk grows just the slightest bit, before she shouts towards the general assembly hall itself. "Open the doors! Warmaster's here!"It's here that the doors begin to open, revealing to you a hall lit by soft amber lighting - and what appears to be the entire Vindicare rank waiting for you. Each one of them standing up in their seats, ready to receive you....Christ. You thought this was going to be just a small gathering or something! Not a fucking assembly of more than a thousand Magical Girls!Hnh. Well, nothing for it.Suddenly, the hat on top of your head grows warm...Allow the hat to take control.Walk under your own power.

>>31137373>>31137602But my opinions are all so good...
>>31137507I support this.
You guys still didnt tell me what you wanted drawn... >>31137481I agree that the hat is a tired joke which should've been forgotten a long time ago, so...
>>31137691More of Midorin seducing Chiaki can never hurt
>>31137691Pushing Downs is for Tonight. At home. In bed.
>>31137691Well at least it doesn't look like shes butt nekkid now.
>>31137691MOAR!...With the hat on.
>>31137691>>31137719Tool of the day: The Sukumizu Secret Entry
>>31137730you say it like that's some kind of improvement
We should use famous firearm inventors for vindicare squad names. Squad Browing or Squad Nagant is nice and short for field communication. Eversors after swordsmiths, calidus after... actors? Hell how about cars, Squad Subaru seems perfectly fitting for MGs
What color is the emblem on the hat?
>>31137908>calidus after... actors?squad Duchonvny
>>31137908Squad Will Smith? Be specific of what era of actors they'd be named after!
>>31137691Presumably we will get a new hat with the new heraldry we chose, so this is the lust hats last hurrah.The question is, what spirit will Pinky put into our new hat. If she knows about the DEagle incarnations and that we have talked to them, it probably won't be as pleasant as lust.
>>31138000I always thought we just add the new heraldry to the old hat
>>31138000The heraldry will just be replaced.Can't get rid of lust hat so easily.
>>31137963I have no problem with Squad (Kevin) Bacon. Best connected calidus in the business.
>>31137388 >>31137393 >>31137398 >>31137507You ignore the strange warmth suddenly emanating from your hat. Whatever's inside it can go fuck itself - you're going to walk under your own power, without being controlled by anything else. You're the one leading this outfit, and not some lust demon from outer space sealed inside a fucking symbol of office - if Pinky was even telling the truth."Short strides, starting with right foot, Murderface. Keep pace with me," Sayaka murmurs beside you in a stage whisper. "Eyes front, deep breaths. And...go. Now. ...Right foot. RIGHT FOOT. NO, NOT YOUR LEFT!"It's with a grimace that you started off with your LEFT foot here - but even with that, Sayaka immediately adjusts to synchronize with your movements, seemingly having delayed her own first step to wait for yours. You breath a sigh of relief here, before realizing that she's letting you set the pace, rather than you following hers. Her doing most of the work rather than you....Yeah, alright. You get into fights a lot, as Warmaster and Equerry. And even Mami will admit that your relationship with the Blueberry is rocky at best, and homicidal at worst.But there's no hiding the fact that Sayaka, for all her flaws and general prickliness at having to work with you closely - is actually being a very good Equerry.Probably better than you actually deserve, too.You keep in time perfect pace with Sayaka the rest of the way to the front of the assembly hall, where your throne should be. Every carefully-measured step, you acutely feel a thousand pairs of eyes on you, watching your every move, measuring, weighing.The hat had never felt heavier in all the times you've worn it. You do your best to ignore it, though - keeping the set expression of silent, grim determination plastered on your face, focusing on nothing else but keeping in time with the Blueberry beside you.[1/2]
>>31138166Around the midway point, a voice pops up in your mind, much like Braids' had earlier. And this is somewhat the same voice, yes - but colder. Smoother. Like sharpened ice, but where Sayaka could bruise and prickle, this one cut."Poor stride. Poor stance. Poor form. Oh, dear." Dildoes makes a tutting noise in your head. "You're walking on heels, not peasant sandals with manure on the soles. Step lightly. Step with conviction. You look like you're grinding out cigarette stubs, for goodness' sake." She sighs. "And to think you're Warmaster, too. How disgraceful."How do you respond?Shut up. I'm trying to walk here.I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.
>>31138214>[x]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.

>>31138214[X]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.We could use Dildoes help here, but we won't go begging for it.
>>31138214[X]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.can't you see we're trying not to fuck up here?
>>31138214>[X]Shut up. I'm trying to walk here.
>>31138214>[X]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.Now is not the time to try anything fancy: better an inelegant walk than falling flat on our face.
>>31138214>[X]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.HatCunt.
>>31138214[x]Shut up. I'm trying to walk here.
>>31138214>[x]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.She'd make one hell of a Warmaster, that one
>>31138214>to think you're Warmaster, tooPlease, I'm gonna be out of this job and free again within the week. It's just a matter of time before I screw this gig up, and they give it back to Mami or pass it onto Blueberry there.and good fucking riddance to it."
>>31138214[x]I'm taking suggestions, not insults. If you don't have anything better to say, then let me do this on my own.BITCH WAIT UNTIL I GET BACK IN THERE. SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
Magical Girl Neco Quest never.
I bet Dildoes is mad we insulted Braids' taste in berries.
>>31138977She probably thought that was funny as hell.
>>31138977I dunno if Dildos likes Sayaka too much considering Sayaka always witches out.
>>31138977Braids falling in love with Sayaka was completely out of the blue.
>>31138228 >>31138231 >>31138237 >>31138240You return the haughty imperiousness of her tone with a snarling one of your own. If she's just going to offer insults rather than suggestions, then you've got no reason to listen to her. If you want to be criticized, then you'll look at the mirror. You don't need to outsource it to anyone else, even if they are actually you."...Well, since you asked so POLITELY," Dildo snaps suddenly after what seems like an awkward eternity, "Let me educate you. It's all in the walk. The blue one had the right idea, but that only works for her, since she walks stiff, like she's got a stick up her ass." Your Golden Desert Eagle grows warm now, but just slightly. "Do what I say, as I say it, without any questions or hesitation, and we'll get this done. Understand?"Right."Good. Now walk."And so you do. Under the collective stare of a thousand Vindicares, you continue to stride alongside Sayaka, towards your throne - but instead of simply stiffly plodding along the Eversor, your motions start to change. Following Dildoes' advice, you step lightly, yet plant your feet into the red carpet with conviction. You keep your strides in a straight line, instead of wobbling all over the place. Shoulders back, chin raised, and with just a tiny bit of sway in your posterior. Both your hands held in two loose fists rather than clenched ones."Good. Very good. Eyes narrowed just like that. Don't smile - always be on the verge of a disapproving frown." You could almost imagine Dildoes flitting around you, checking out your every angle obsessively, and snapping out instructions. She seems the person to get particular over the smallest things, anyway."And now for the finale." You hear her whisper as you near the throne itself. "The blue one will step aside here. Continue walking, and then when I say so--"Yeah. You get it. Spin on your heel, and with your right hand--[1/2]
>>31139077"Sweep and flick. Yes." Even if it's just her voice you hear, you can tell she's smiling. "Sweep and flick."And true enough, two steps later - Sayaka breaks away from you, moving to stand by your throne. You do it just like you said you would - a quick spin on your heel clockwise, to face your audience, just as you reach up with your right hand. The soft, silky black length of your ponytail hooks onto your curled fingers, slipping through them - and you flick the entire mass over your shoulder just as you open your momentarily-closed eyes.The hushed, collective gasp you hear makes it all very nearly worth it. Most of all, Sayaka's surprised, gaping expression."How did you--" She starts to hiss, but she's quickly beaten to the punch by the small, bespectacled form of Rea Ashford standing behind a black podium, the girl's lack of height remedied by a wooden box on her feet. Speaking into a microphone, her voice is amplified by speakers on the ceiling, magnifying what should be a quiet, deadpan murmuring into something loud and clear. "The Vindicare Rank, as assembled here on this day, welcomes and cherishes our beloved Warmaster's participation."A few claps - merely a scattering at the left part of the hall - but it soon spreads into an almost riotous applause. You merely nod at this, but in actuality you're just lowering your head so the hat's visor conceals your reddened cheeks. Another trick."Let us all be seated." Rea says. You take a seat upon your throne - it's a rather comfortable leather-cushioned number, with the Officio's roman numeral designation at the very top, embossed in gold. The rest of the assembled Vindicares follow suit.[2/3]
>>31139102"Step forward, members of the Squad Yet To Be Named." The diminutive rank leader intones, and eight Magical Girls stand from the very front row, each one in their full Magical Girl costume. "Step forward to receive full certification from our Warmaster and the name you will answer to until your destruction."Rea calls them by full names, one by one, names you don't recognize. All of them hopeful, looking at you with fresh faces, full of optimism, but at the same time tempered by the harsh advanced training they've been put through. All of them are anticipating the events to come."Warmaster." The Rank Leader nods at you, her glasses glinting in the amber light. "Their squad name, please."What name do you give this Vindicare Squad? This will be their permanent title, and from here on in, they will be using it to gain achievements for you and the Officio.>Twenty minutes voting time allotted for this decision.
>>31139136[x] Squad KaryuIt's a good name.
>>31137771This has conjured up the mental image of Midori doing that in a sukumizu blushing and asking if she's too chubby. Send help, I'm dying.
>>31139136[X] Excessive Gravitas
>>31139136[X] Squad Barrett
>>31139187"...And always remember. What truly matters is not the name you are given here today, but what you come to make that name mean in the future."
>>31139164[x] Squad KaryuI vote for this
>>31139136[X] Those Assholes"Whether you live up to it because of frightening competence or embarrassing incompetence is your choice and yours alone. I trust you won't disappoint me."
>>31139214No matter what, we should say this. It's perfect.
>>31139102>>31139136Dammit, Dildoes confirmed for favorite Homu. Also I'll add to Karyu.
>>31139165>>31139188>>31139196This.Alternatively, squad SCAR
>>31139136>[x] Squad KaryuAlternativelly, Time Stop, ask Pinky.
>>31139164>[x] Squad KaryuSounds good to me
>>31139136[x] Squad KaryuLeast terrible so far.
>>31139164like the sound of this
>>31139164A jpop musician name? Debatable,especially since he's into androgyny.
>>31139228Squad Time Stop Ask Pinky is a terrible name, anon.
>Karyu>everyone liking an emo faggothttps://www.google.nl/search?q=Karyu&espv=210&es_sm=122&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=gww3U53PGqTmywOG1YGQBg&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1920&bih=1115Fuck that. I'll go with Barrett
>>31139227Squad SWANTSpecial Weapons And No Tactics
>>31139245It's clearly named after the Dragon of Dojima.
>>31139245Maybe the mean Koryu?http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Kohryu
>>31139245>>31139252I'm thinking they mean the Godzilla thing.
>>31139252... What? 火龍Fire dragon
>>31139136Do we have a Squad Kooryuu or Anryuu? If not, we should work on this, because symmetrical docking is awesome
>>31139252I pity the fool that named their Vindicare squads after a thinly veiled reference to Mr.T from Final Fantasy VII.
>>31139136[X] Squad KaryuI'm not against Barrett either but choosing is hard, man.
>>31139136[X] Squad BarrettIt's the most sensible.
>>31139136Squad Suikait's japanese for watermelon
>>31139188>>31139165Vetoing Barrett, its silly and out of character. I vote for karyu
>>31139136[x] Squad Karyu
>>31139294Is this thing why everyone's voting for Karyu?http://godzilla.wikia.com/wiki/Karyu
>>31139136>Squad DildoesThe girl just helped us. It is only apropriate we name a squad after her.
>>31139164[x] Squad KiryuThey should be honored to have a wonderful name.
>>31139136Squad Mizuchi, water dragon.
>>31139136[x] >>31139164Karyu it is.
I'll have to go with barrett as well. Fire dragons just down outweigh pop faggots.>>31139313What?
Squad Orochi.The Eight Headed Dragon of Legend.
>>31139336I'm voting for it because of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nakajima_Ki-201It keeps the dragon theme but changes where the name is drawn from.
>>31139365>Orochi>gets tricked into getting drunk and bitchslapped by a divine emoAt least use Kusanagi, the sword from its tail.
>>31139409>Barret>t>not ttpls go
>>31139136[X] Squad Karyu
>>31139136[x] >>31139164backing this
>>31139419Gravitas doesn't actually sound that bad.
There's already a Squad Kiryu out there. Karyu is too close for my taste.Gonna go with Barrett, because Gravitas has too few votes to make a difference.
>>31139448Yeah you're right, changing my vote to Barrett
>>31139456>Aka Manto - A malicious spirit who haunts bathrooms and asks the cubicle occupants if they want red or blue paper.
>>31139214>>31139222Seconding this notion as well.
>>31139136VOTING IS CLOSEDTALLYING NYAALSO I VOTE FOR BARRETT I'M ADDING IT
>>31139448Oh, is there? In that case, I change my vote to go with Barett. Or Squad Gasadokuro.
>>31139470kappa - turtle demon who sucks your soul out though your rectum
>>31139487>>31139496I'd say a vote change counts because you were in before the cat
>>31139448Actually, looks like Gravitas might be close to the same now, so voting for it could work.
>>31139496Yeah I counted the vote change. It didn't help, nya.THE WINNER IS THIS VISUAL KEI DOUCHEBAG NYA
>>31139448But the first chinese character for all those squads are completely different from each other.I guess it's obvious to an asian person but not to folks who don't have deal with chinese characters.It's like the difference between 'coffee' and 'espresso'.
>>31139487I count 9 Faggots and 12 Barretts with the vote changes
>>31139559I don't, but I'll do a recount anyway.
>>31139537So err. Karyu won? What does it mean? Is it some ship or does the word mean anything translated?
>>31139559THIS IS ALL DILDOES FAULT SOMEHOW>
>Barrettugh. it is disgusting.it would be better if you had just picked a joke name instead of seriously picking barrett.
>>31139582I roughtly translates as Fire Dragon.
>>31139577Still getting Karyu.
>>31139582Karyu = 火龍Fire DragonAlso the name of the Nakajima Ki-201
>>31139582Karyuu = 火龍Fire dragonWe also have a team called Squad Hiryuu Flying DragonI have a hard time imagining why people think the two is too similar to each other. The only similarity is they have 龍 in their name
>>31139527Might have been better if the name had been chosen tomorrow(or whenever the next thread is) with a warning that it was going to happen, giving people time to come up with better names. Too late now.
>>31139636>I have a hard time imagining why people think the two is too similar to each otherThey're 洋鬼子, of course they can't tell the difference.
>>31139637its been like a week since we were told that we will be picking a name. it wouldn't make a difference even if we had a year.
>>31139635Oh. Well, Fire Dragon does not sound so bad for a squad of vindicares.
>>31139608Oh boo hoo hoo Ken-sama.Besides, Karyu won anyway AFAIK
>>31139637We were told like a week ago that we'd be picking a name. This is simply the just reward for procrastination.
>>31139636Oh, it was Hiryuu, I apologize for remembering wrong.>>31139448
>>31139632But is the name already taken?
>>31139690Dey arr sound same
>>31139690Honestly there may also be Kiryuu which is Wood Dragon, I can't remember squad names at all.
>>31139697Anon pls. I'm sure Decu would've said something if it was.
>>31139697I think narrative convenience says 'no', nya.
>>31139636Wonder what "Golden Dragon" would have translated to (since you know Golden Weaps).
>>31139680Replace the image of the faggot on the left with a Messerschmitt ME 262A looking plane
>>31139723Kinryuu, I imyagine.
>>31139632>deal with it.jpgI'm content either way. Expected people to go for something outright stupid. These two are both fine.
>>31139743>>31139723Actually, it would be pronounced Koryu.
>>31139746Yeah, fire dragon is decent enough that hopefully we won't get any tomatoes thrown at us.Will we get Dildoes commentary on the choice I wonder?
>>31139723>>31139743The cat got it right. Kinryuu = 金龍
>>31139637Oh, people were coming up with names alright.That's why I'm so surprised both leading options today are actually reasonable.
>>31139779>Kouryuu紅竜 = "Red Dragon"
>>31139739Or this fucking thing.
>>31139803tg = excessive procrastination
>>31139783The kanji are right, but not exactly the pronunciation. I mean, yes, the most common way to say 金 is kin, but that's usually if it's by itself. >>31139803[名] かん きむ こ この んAs you can see, when used in names, the third usage works best with 龍
>>31139827Usually but not always.
>>31139827Ugh, figuring out how each Kanji is pronounced is one of the worst bits of Japanese.Onyomi readings for 金 = kin, kon, and gonBut when used in proper names, it looks like 金 can be kan, kimu, ko, kono, or n, as you say.Which one do we uuuuuse
where the hell did the name Karyu came from anyway?I don't remember it being discussed before
>>31139863Someone please invade japan and give them the alphabet.
>>31139881we TRIED.THEY FUCKED IT UP
>>31139881they don't need the alphabet, they've got like three of the bastards already, that's the problem.
>>31139827Um... I knew it was pronounced 'kin ryuu' because I saw it in Japan as alittle child.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRKVE_fv024It was a dance, they called it 'kin ryuu no mae'. Dance of the gold dragon
>>31139901Roman alphabet is best alphabet.
>>31139881Two atomic bombs weren't enough.
>>31139863I'd stick with kin, kon and gon since we seem to name squads like ships and things like that are named.
>>31139912The Roman alphabet was great for Latin. English? Eh...
>>31139102So, what will we tell Sayaka later when she asks how we suddenly became perfect hair flicking watch-wearing dildo?Also, what will Midori think, since she knows from Pinky that this kind of hairflick is what Homura did before Chiaki.
>>31139913They surrendered, you just failed to capitalize on that.
>>31139922and this is why we shouldn't have tried to name a squad in a language we don't understand....still better than Barrett, mind.
>>31139863Be glad this isn't based in Chinese. 528 pages of 8 point type just for the phonetics. Not the letters, the phonemes that define the letters. The letters take up another 362 pages.
>>31139901Honestly, just Hiragana with maybe some pitch accent markers would suffice, as far as I know.
>>31139943>So, what will we tell Sayaka later when she asks how we suddenly became perfect hair flicking watch-wearing dildo?that we took her advice and got gud
>>31139953Wait, I thought each character in, say, Mandarin Chinese had exactly 1 pronunciation?
>>31139959Please, no. Reading a paragraph of solid hiragana is suffering. Kanji do a lot to help readability.
>>31140005Add spaces between words. Bam, problem solved.
>>31139943no, i'm pretty sure Chiaki has done it before,Infact, did we pull one right before buying Midori her Waifu Special?
>>31140091Yes, and when we met Iori at the coffee shop.
>>31139712>Kiryuu鬼龍Rather than 'wood' we could have 'demon' and make it still Kiryuu
>>31139943Chiaki did the hairflick when she was wearing the hat before this instance.
>>31140189The hat is obviously a very lustfull Homura past life. It all makes sense now.
>>31140118soooo...What we're saying here is basically that Chiaki has a head full of flick.
>>31139712"Wood dragon" would most likely be something like "Mokuryuu" or "bokuryuu", or possibly even "moryuu", "guryuu", or even "motoryuu".
>>31140232>"Wood dragon"Mokuryū = 木龍Looks like you're right. I wasn't thinking when I saw Kiryuu
>>31140232While we're at it...Water Dragon: "Suiryuu"Earth Dragon: "Doryuu"Moon Dragon: "Getsuryuu" or "Gatsuryuu"Sun Dragon: "Itsuryuu" or "Nichiryuu"Iron Dragon: "Tetsuryuu"Silver Dragon: "Ginryuu"
>>31140232Ah is that the case? Well, this is what happens when I use Window's IME to check things I'm not sure of.
>>31140296Death Dragon = "Shiryuu"Stone Dragon = "Kokuyruu", "Sekiryuu", or "Shakuryuu"Steel Dragon = "Kouryuu"
>>31140346Death Dragon is kinda dumb honestly. I honestly like Kinryuu. Gold Dragon unless I'm mistaken. Double entredre for reasons.
>>31136082I think back when she was dating Wendy about 6 months to a year ago.
>>31139164You nod at Rea, and it's here that you stand up from your throne, stepping forward - just as the eight members of the Vindicare Squad about to be certified sink down to one knee in a single, unified movement. The butts of their rifles slamming onto the floor in a rippling cadence."As Warmaster of the Ninth," You begin to speak, looking at each at them in turn. "I grant certification upon each and every member of this squad. I also bequeath the squad name..." You pause here as you decide upon a handful of squad names you've thought up on your way here. Only one seemed fitting. "...Karyu."Silence, except for the unified slamming of the assembled squad's rifles into the floor yet again. Acknowledgement, perhaps. Approval, maybe. They haven't started crying yet, anyway.When the applause finally comes, it's no longer hesitant - it starts as quickly as it engulfs the entire assembly hall in cheers and clapping. You raise a hand here, to signal for quiet."...And always remember." You add as the audience manages to quiet down long enough for you to speak. "What truly matters is not the name you are given here today - but what you come to make that name mean in the future." You nod again to the kneeling Vindicares. "Stand, Squad Karyu. Stand and be counted among the rest." A small smile curls your lips. "As Warmaster and also as fellow Vindicare, I congratulate you."The cheering explodes as the newly-christened Squad Karyu stands up as one, each member seemingly about to cry, or in the middle of doing so, or simply trying to stop. You give them a firm handshake each in turn, giving a few words about their choice of weapon here and there, and telling them that you'll be looking forward to hearing their legend someday. One of them returns your handshake with a hug - and Sayaka had to stop clapping beside you to carefully pry you out of her grasp.[1/2]
>>31140394"Wasn't so bad now, was it?" The Blueberry remarks while she escorts you out of the slowly-emptying assembly hall, the ceremony more or less done half an hour after you granted Squad Karyu its new name. "Squad Karyu? Not bad at all, Murderface."Yeah. It wasn't that bad. ...And she should get off your case, that was the best you could come up with that fit the theme you're familiar with."No, no, I'm not actually being sarcastic this time." Sayaka grins. "It was good. I mean - well - not as good as it could've been, but it was good." She nods. "I was dreading about you naming them something like Squad GodBarrel or KillBison, one of those double-barreled names - but Karyu works fine."Huh. Well. Those....those are actually good names, maybe you can ask Ashford for a takeback--"No. No takebacks."Fuck. There goes that idea, then."Murderface."Right, right. You were only kidding.Maybe.
>>31140413>KillBisonOh, that is a good one...
>>31140413Great, now we can pop on by Noriko's M Idol show (if we can make it) and throw a tomato at her or something
>>31140413Chikuwa incoming.Fun fact: the Kanji for Chikuwa = 竹輪竹 = Bamboo輪 = Circle, link, ring, or wheel (so basically something vaguely circular)Possibly a reference to how they are/were made?
>>31140442Every time I think of Bison, I think of M. Bison going 'OF COURSE".
>>31140413Alright, pausing for now! Thread to continue Monday night!Thank you for everyone's participation! Sorry replies have been slow, the network hasn't been cooperative as of late! I do think we have a writeup incoming, but I'm not too sure about that, so questions answered in the meantime!
>>31140481Also, 竹輪 is one of the Japanese words that, confusingly, mix onyomi and kunyomi readings (different subsets of how to pronounce Kanji characters). "Chiku" is an onyomi reading, "Wa" is a kunyomi reading.fukking Japanese how does it work
>>31140496What do parents and family members of megucas think of them and of megucas as a whole?
>>31140496Which name were you rooting for? Also what does the squad think about the name?
>>31140496Thanks for running Decu!
>>31139986Nope. They are modified by accompanying characters. That's why "zu" has 5 different accent marks and 7 meanings.
>>31140536iirc Meguca are mostly out of the public eye.
>>31140496What did Mami think of the name? Does she approve of it?With all of this competence displayed so far, is QB starting to be afraid (as much as a mutant space cat can) of when Chiaki will go full-blown Girl A and screw up a major op?
>>31140496Tnanks for running!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!Diablo 3 time!
>>31140224....I haven't been able to physically laugh for 17 years and you made me try. I got spit all over my monitor too, you bastard.
>>31140496thanks for running Deculture
>>31140496Sorry, my mistake, no writeups!>>31140536It's difficult to say, but the girls that become Magical Girls often do not have parents to concern about their becoming...Magical Girls. But it's not an impossibility. Kyuubey asks them to tell the truth, but will facilitate a cover if it's needed. Siblings, female ones, often try to get in on a contract too, either through jealousy or simply wishing to help. Otherwise, families just think of contractees as gainfully employed.>>31140538Hahaha, well, Karyu was good, but I was also rooting for monster names, like Orochi!>>31140538It's a very good reaction! You've given them a squad name that follows the pattern of more legendary squads. They were really afraid of you giving them a silly one!
>>31140570Koobs feels like he has adequate contingencies on place.Or we wouldn't be Warmasterq
>>31140646>They were really afraid of you giving them a silly one!Why the hell did they specfically request us then?Dammit, they could have chosen someone who'd definately have given them a better name, and we could have gone to Noriko's show.
>>31140714We can`t go to noriko`s show because f the remembrance ceremony
Most likely writeups from me and possibly Archival next time.Complications stopped me from putting the one I had ready up and not writing the rest of it stopped me from using my backup today.
>>31140646Who's in this damn new squad anyway? Are we going to actually meet them?
>>31140570She would definitely approve of it, and yes, QB will be starting to look at that possibility with trepidation!>>31140714Well, they're afraid, and at the same time they're quite ecstatic of having their Warmaster give them their name (being a Vindicare also helps, they're stoked there).
Because I felt bad about playing D3 all morning
>>31140826and you should feel bad.Diablo 3 is an abomination.
>>31140820What kind of training do vindicares go through? I feel like there hasn't been much focus on them in general.
>>31140765Moar Wendy-centric writeups? Huzzah!
>>31140826PerfectoWhat does Rabucom1.png look like?
>>31140941identical only with more sketchy lines?
>>31140941... I have trouble going back to old drawings after my style has changed so much...
>>31141007Well you could take the idea from the original and re-sketch it in the new style.
Arright, seems like Decu is out, and unfortunately I can't answer any of the questions out right now.
>>31141031I could, but then that might give rise to an artbomination or something!
>>31140928I'd guess there's physical training, but different from the regimen of an Eversor. It's more about carrying a lot of equipment easily than outright strength. (Chiaki's arms really _aren't_ as noodly as they look)Significantly more weapon identification, handling and maintainence.Not that much of it matters because I get the impression that Chiaki didn't go to a lot of it, and I'd guess that Mami largely let her skip out on it because even if she couldn't remember her name, she could strip, clean and reassemble more firearms than several more senior vindicare.
>>31141104But artbominations are best bominations....
>>31141104that's my favorite KIND of abomination!
>>31141038How does Wendy like her sex?
>>31141210Decu already summed it up better than I could.(She'd never admit this, though.)
Drew a quick thing
>>31141309So how will she react if we give her a collar?
>>31141327hahahaWarming up for the main event?
>>31141327Et tu, Larro?It's good.Next Hero Quest when?
>>31141354the same way she'll react if you don't.>>31141371HeroQuestRena @HeroRena 2 hrsAnother three or so hours until the next thread is up
>>31141309Woah, Wendy turned into best girl.
>>31141354"...The fuck did Miss Tomoe tell you?""...You sayin' I'm weird?""...Real fucking funny."I wouldn't do it unless you're ready to own that puppy and all the furniture she chews up, though.Give her to Midori.
>>31141309>Wendy pinup>>31141427>Midori pinupNow the only thing we're missing is Pinky pinup... Decu, pls.>>31141387>Hero Quest in <1hrAwesome!
>>31141511She's lying to you, Chiaki. She's a liar and a slut.
>>31141533>implying Chiaki doesn't like slutty girls
>>31141511For some reason this made me imagine pic related with Chiaki.
>>31141511Is that the volume where Windy da Wabbit shows up and NTRs Mayumi
>>31141708missing the POMF =3
>>31141708>Chiaki>Putting 2+2 together and getting 5Her self insert is the molestee, kid
We've got an entire party of subs and no dom.
>>31141788There is always Mami.Or Candeloro.
>>31141708W-where's the next panel?!
>>31141823Pretty sure Pinky is switch.
possibly followed by >>31137013
>>31141857Pinky is usually sub, but for Chiaki, she's a total dom.Might get pregnant? Homura-chan, I'm gonna MAKE you pregnant!
>>31141821and I'm out
>>31141576Lascivious Lori will be there to comfort her.
>>31141938Thank you very much!
>>31141938You rock, Hat-chan!
>>31141038Has Wendy ever been to Disneyland?
