Since your group was so large, you decided to split everybody up into three groups. You're in charge of keeping an eye on Cole, Julie, and Melissa, while the others were being seen to by Jenner and Lillith. "Alright girls, how about we try out the rides, first?" You ask them. "Yes!" Julie smiles and nods rapidly."Sure." Melissa shrugs."Ummmm, yeah, okay." Cole mumbles, unable to take her eyes off the large, twisting rollercoaster rails suspended above the park grounds."Heh, sounds like you're SCARED, Cole." Julie grins smugly and elbows her partner lightly."I-I AM NOT!" Cole says defensively."Don't worry." Melissa says coolly. "We've all got our weaknesses.""S-SHUT UP!"You can't help but chuckle."Stop it, Producer!" Cole grunts, punching you in the shoulder."Okay! Okay!">Maybe we should ease into things by starting on tamer rides.>We go in full throttle!>Other
>>31653452>Maybe we should ease into things by starting on tamer rides.
>>31653452>>We go in full throttle!We hold cole's hand
>>31653452>>Maybe we should ease into things by starting on tamer rides.Then ramp it up towards a climax.
>>31653452>>Maybe we should ease into things by starting on tamer rides.I rather not have her freak our and cause her to short circuit the rides
>>31653452>>We go in full throttle!Prepare for a shocking experience.
>>31653452>Maybe we should ease into things by starting on tamer rides.One easy going ride then>We go in full throttle!Probably not the log flume, though.
>>31653452Tell Cole that Is alright. We can go on the carousel if she's scared.
So, Ferris Wheel at the end of the day?
>>31653452>We go in full throttle!
Does anyone else imagine them in a disney/doney park/six flags?
>>31654076I'm thinking a show
>>31653452You decide to start things off with the tamer rides. After all, you didn't want to traumatize your girls, who probably have never even SEEN an amusement park ride before. Checking the map, you lead your girls over to the carnival section, where most of the tamer rides are being kept. You decide to skip the carousel. Honestly, it wasn't really that exciting a ride, and you doubt Cole, Julie, and Melissa would get any enjoyment out of it. Instead, you first start off with an innocent teacup ride, more to judge their tolerance to motion sickness. It goes over well, with none of your idols getting sick or anything. Julie looks like she's having the time of her life, Melissa looks a bit bored, and Cole seemed nervous at first, warmed up to the ride quickly enough. You then start ramping things up, taking them to one of the pendulum rides. Now those were a bit more complicated and exciting."Um.... are we really going to get on that?" Cole frowns as she looks at it in motion. "Wouldn't it be kinda... dangerous?""Don't be silly." You chuckle. "It's perfectly safe!""Right..." Cole mumbles, not completely convinced.However, she still follows the rest of you in the line. The ride was a bit... well actually a LOT more intense, but this time everybody seemed to getting some fun out of it, Cole especially. You guess the adrenaline was beginning to override her unease.Unfortunately, somebody on the ride couldn't handle it and vomited. Fortunately, you were nowhere near it."W-what was that?" Cole asked, looking around."Nothing, Cole." You sigh. It's the same for the next few rides. There's the spinning swing, the orbital, and few others.(cont)
>>31654157"I think I need to take a break...." Cole says when you all get off a particularly aggressive bumper car session."Heh, poor little Cole." Julie chuckles. "Looks like she can't handle all the FUN we're having.""Shut up!" Cole scowls."To be honest, I could use a break, too." Melissa adds in, flexing her augmetic arm. "I think all that motion shook something loose.""Hm, I suppose we can rest for a couple minutes." You say. You look around for a suitable place to have your girls sit down.And then you see an empty bench, with a nearby sign labeled WARNING: SPLASH ZONE.That was because it was right under the log ride.Oh boy...>Prank time!>Nah, that's too mean.>Other
>>31654209>>Nah, that's too mean."Girls, if you don't want to get splashed, don't sit there."
>>31654209>>Nah, that's too mean.
>>31654209>Nah, that's too mean.But at some point we should do a hazard course that has a section where Cole has to wade or swim.Because sewer levels happen.
>>31654209>>Prank time!>Wet ColePlease.
>>31654209>Nah, that's too mean.We want to keep our girls in good spirits; that's what this trip is for. We don't want Cole freaking out and Melissa's augs might get damaged, since they're made of basicly scrap.
>>31654209>Nah, that's too mean.
>>31654209>Prank time!Plausible deniability
>>31654209>Other sit with your idols on the splash zone, we don't mind getting wet
>>31654209Nah, on second though, you probably shouldn't prank them like that. While it would probably be funny for you, it might hurt your credibility in their eyes."You know, I could sit down for a sec." Cole says, making her way over to the bench."Um, Cole, I'd wait for a second if I were you." You stop her by grabbing her shoulder."What? Why?""Because THAT." You point.At that moment, a log with shrieking passengers comes flying down the drop, slamming into the water and sending a huge wave crashing over the bench, drenching everything around in a pretty large radius. Suddenly, you realize Cole is no longer in front of you, and is fact cowering behind you, her face pale."WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!" She wails."That, Cole, is what we call a Splash Zone." You say."WHAT KIND OF SICK FREAK WOULD SO SOMETHING LIKE THAT.""The world is a cruel place, Cole." You try not to laugh. "Cole's afraid of water?" Melissa turns to Julie."Oh, you didn't know? She HATES it." Julie says. "I mean, it was bad enough for her to get used to showers...""Harsh." Melissa nods sympathetically."I guess this means water rides are out of the question." You say dryly.>Continue on to the hardcore rides.>Food!>Shows!>Games!>Other
>>31654600>>Shows!Time to see the competition.
>>31654600>Continue on to the hardcore rides.
>>31654600>Games!How long until one of the idols call bullshit?
>>31654704Also, on a side note, we should totally cheat at one of the shooting range games.
>>31654600>>Continue on to the hardcore rides.WEEEEI think we need to sit next to cole.If she starts freaking out, hold her hand
>>31654723This is a thing we should do. Win an oversized fluffy toy, and give it to Cole so everyone can tease her about it.
>>31654600>>Continue on to the hardcore rides.We will make melissa have fun
>>31654600>Games!man, Melissa could clean up with the sledge hammer test of strength game and the other ones of strength too.
>>31654767We should win as many prizes as we can, for the girls, before they ban us from the games.
>>31654704>>31654723We should do this with the operator group later, instead.
>>31654872If Merc gives us the chance to, sure. I just get feeling we'll not get that chance.
>>31654872They're probably already banned from the shooting range by now
>>31654600>>Continue on to the hardcore rides.THE RIDE(S) NEVER ENDS.
>>31654600"Okay girls, time for the grown up rides, now!" You say, motioning for them to follow you."What are we going on next?" Julie squeals."I hope that one." Melissa points to a massive, narrow tower jutting into the sky. So high you couldn't even see the top that clearly. You check you map to see what ride it was.THE ORBITAL DROPOooooh, yes. "Yeah, sure, we can go on that one first." You nod."We are..." Cole says, craning her head back to try and look at the whole thing. "It's so..... BIG.""Oh Cole, you just gotta learn to take it all in!" Julie snickers as she wraps an arm around Cole. "It's not that bad once you get used to it!""Pffft, I guess a girl like you should know." Cole retorts."What are you talking about...?" Melissa blinks."Girls, focus." You say. "We'll never get there if you all keep bickering like this!"You all finally reach the base of the tower and are led to the seats. The staff there make sure you're all buckled in securely, with not only crash bars but also five point harnesses. Made feel like you really were in a drop pod. One of the attendants then hands you a facemask."What's this for?" You ask."Oxygen. The air can get pretty thin up there. Just a safety precaution."Now this was interesting.You turn to get an eye on the girls. Julie and Melissa seemed to be pretty amped, swinging their legs back and forth like little kids. Cole was trembling in her restraints. >Reassure Cole.>She needs to learn how to face her fears herself.>Other
>>31655257>>Reassure Cole.She is here to enjoy this, cmon.
>>31655257>Reassure Cole.Tell her this is nothing like that one HALO jump over Tselinoyarsk.
>>31655257>Reassure Cole.Say that we're a bit afraid too.
>>31655257>>Reassure Cole.>We can go for food and games after this"Oh Cole, you just gotta learn to take it all in!" Julie snickers as she wraps an arm around Cole. "It's not that bad once you get used to it!""Pffft, I guess a girl like you should know." Cole retorts.Their so lewd
>>31655305Crap, wrong context
>>31655257>She needs to learn how to face her fears herself.If anything. Just tell her it everything will be fine and leave it at at. No speeches for a bloody ride.
>>31655257>>Reassure Cole.Hold her hand like a dad
>>31655257>Reassure Cole.Its fuuuun, and plenty safe. These rides are designed to look scary to dare people to try them, but the safety is the number 1 priority.
>>31655257>Reassure Cole.Hold her hand.
>>31655673Cole is not for lewds.
>>31655720A dad can hold his daughteru's hand.
>>31655737That's incest, anon.
>>31655767How about patting the back of her hand reassuringly. "You'll be fine, honey. You'll do fine."
>>31655978You would fondle the bottom of an innocent child?
>>31656029Oh. Well I just wanted to be clear.
>>31655257"Hey, Cole." You say to grab her attention."W-what?" Cole turns to face you."Cole, close your eyes, and take a deep breath.""But-""Just do it."Cole then reluctantly closes her eyes and takes a deep breath. You see her trembling begin to slow down."Good, now keep doing that. Cole, I know you're probably scared, but let me tell you something." You say. "Fear is just an illusion of the mind. It's the result of anxiety over things that have not, and probably never will, happen. Getting hung up over those sort of things is just, well.. silly.""So you're telling me just to ignore danger?" Cole asks."Oh no, danger is real. Fear is not. There's a difference." You say, and hold Cole's hand with yours. "You know, on my first combat drop, I was almost as scared as you were. I was on the verge of crapping myself when my CO came by, smacked me in the face, and told me what I just told you. And you know what, I found out she was right. It's silly about getting afraid over the small stuff.""You make it sound so easy.""Well, it really isn't, but if you back out now, you'll never be able to say you've tried. I mean, you can take showers alone, now! That's a big step up, you know.""Can you please not say something like that out loud?" Cole blushes."Sorry. Just stay calm. You can keep your eyes closed the whole time, if you want.""What, are you kidding? Then I'd never live it down from Julie and Melissa." Cole snorts."That's the spirit." You grin.A siren then wails, signifying that the ride was starting. The seats lurch as they're carried up the tower, slowly. You look forward to see the park, and much of Delta City, slowly growing smaller and smaller as you go higher. You actually sort of lose track how high you're going before finally, the lift stops at the very top.And you all hang there for what seems like an eternity. You know this was deliberate on the part of the designers, to maximize anxiety.(cont)
>>31656091"PREPARE FOR DROP!" A loud voice yells and suddenly the lift lurches again as it drops back down to earth. You can barely even hear the other passengers screaming over the rush of air blowing past you. For a brief few seconds, you actually float in your seat as the drop makes you temporarily weightless.Then, the lift screeches to a halt, before rocketing back up the tower, pressing you back firmly into your seat. You vaguely remembered reading in the brochure that the ride's movements were completely randomized, so no two rides were exactly the same. For about another minute, the lift is randomly dropped and pulled up the tower, before finally slowing down and settling back on ground level.Well, that was pretty exciting. Your hair is a mess and clothes disheveled from all the rushing air, but your heart was pumping from literally being catapulted up and down through the air. You nearly collapse from dizziness after standing up from your seat. You see Cole stumble out of her seat and collapse to her knees. Julie and Melissa, who fared a little better, immediately go to her aid."Hehehe..." Cole chuckles softly. "That was actually kinda fun...""See? Nothing to it." You smile.After another break so the girls could fully recover from the experience, you decide to head off to the park's signature ride, the Cosmic Storm. That was the large rollercoaster that twisted and turned around the entire park. You heard rumors that at some points on the ride, the car would actually break the sound barrier."Alright girls, off to the main attraction!" You say. As you lead them to the line, you see Julie glaring at something to the side."Julie, what's up?" You ask."My Justice Senses are tingling." Julie scowls.You turn your head to see what seems to be one group of park goers being harassed by another group. It looked like some drunk college guys hitting some girls.>Let Julie do her thing.>Not your problem.>Other
>>31656127>>Let Julie do her thing.Hitting on, or hitting them?
>>31656127>>Let Julie do her thing.Pain and horrific nightmares to those who dare ruin the girls experience at the festival.Inb4 these harassed girls are undercover combat idols.
>>31656127>>Let Julie do her thing."Julie, This is your hard mode achievement, try it with no violence."
any bets on this being another idol group?
>>31656127>>OtherAlert the authorities then move along, we got tons of things to see and do today.
>>31656127>Let Julie do her thing.>OtherRescue the other girls by pretending to know them in the past, to give them an excuse to leave the guys that are harassing them.
>>31656219This. We got Cole to stretch this time out. Let's see if Julie is as brave.
>>31656127>>Let Julie do her thing.>>31656219This, since if we do this violently we might get kicked out
>>31656127I am reminded of a certain group of German Black Rabbits...
>>31656127>Let Julie do her thing.
>>31656127"Okay Julie, do you thing. But try to keep the violence to a minimum. We don't want to get kicked out of the park." You say."Got it!" Julie grins and slowly begins floating over to the altercation. Melissa moves in a position to back her up if needed, while Cole is still recovering from the ride, but keeps a wary eye all the same.There were four guys in a half circle formation, keeping the group of five girls cornered in a relatively less trafficked area of the walkway. They weren't really doing anything blatantly wrong, but you could tell that the girls were obviously uncomfortable with this situation.>roll 1d20

Rolled 20>>31656572Julie actually manages to sneak up on the guys without arousing their suspicion. She snakes both her arms around two of the guys, pulling them close to her like they were old buddies or something like that."Hey! It looks like you're all having fun here! I don't suppose you're having any problems or anything!" Julie says with fake cheer, giving a wink to the girls."Ah, no, we were actually just leaving!" One of the girls says, and they quickly slip out of the net and make their escape."Hey, what the hell are you doing?" One of the frats scowls, before giving Julie a quick look over and then grinning. "You're going have to make it up to us, you know.""If any of you hope to still have kids in the future. I suggest you all leave. Right. Now." Julie says, still with a smile on her face.>roll 1d20

Julie chuckles before grabbing the offending hand giving it a twist. You wince as you can hear the bone breaking even from where you're standing. Before the frat even has a chance to scream, Julie grabs his arm and flips him over in the air, slamming his back down onto the pavement hard. Melissa joins in, too, sending her augmetic fist into the back of another frat's skull, sending him sprawling on the ground.You see Cole's arm crackle with energy, but she hesitates when she see's she doesn't have a clear shot. >roll 3d20

>>31657190One of the two remaining frats lunges at Julie and manages to tackle her to the ground. However, Julie is barely even phased and successfully blocks his attempts to strike her while she's down. However, she can't really do much else just yet.Melissa, meanwhile gives the last frat a powerful uppercut, snapping his head back. You swear you see him lifted up in the air from the force of the punch before he topples to the ground. Cole tries to fire a lightning bolt, but it misses and hits a nearby lamp post, causing it to explode brilliantly. You hear a bunch of park goers shriek in surprise.Seeing that things had already gotten out of hand enough, you step in. Your augmetic arms wrap around the neck of the frat pinning down Julie and you constrict them into a sleeper hold. The frat struggles and twists in an effort to get free, but he's no match for your augmetic arms, which lock in place. Finally, his body falls limp as he goes unconscious, allowing Julie to slip out from under him and get back to her feet."You know, I could've taken him." Julie grumbles."Yeah, but I think we've attracted a bit to much attention." You say. "Let's get out of here!"You ditch the four unconscious frats on the side of the walkway in some bushes. They probably won't wake up for a few hours, or until a cleaning crew comes across them. "You look to be in a good mood, Julie." You say as she's literally skipping along and humming to herself."Well, of course! I dispensed some justice and punished a bunch of wrongdoers!" Julie says happily."I just like the punching the part." Melissa shrugs."I am soooo out of it, right now." Cole sighs. "Don't worry, I promise we'll get all your favorite junk food later." You say.>Go on the last ride.>Food!>Games!>Shows!>Other
>>31657518>"Don't worry, I promise we'll get all your favorite junk food later." You say.>Food!Do it now. By that I mean find her a new one.

>>31657544>>31657602I think shows should be down with the whole group. One the last things we all do at the park type of thing. Cool down type of deal. But I'm going to guess that's just me.
>>31657518>>Food!Lets see if the other groups are around.Can switch it up.
>>31657653I'd be fine with that, but I dunno if Merc will let us do one last thing as an entire group.

>>31657948This. Can we have a vote for a group show?
>>31657843Well, after all that excitement, you decide you've had enough of rides for now. Instead you decide to catch one of the many shows. Checking the brochure, you see that there were a couple scheduled that you can catch right now.>Magical Girl Sparkle Squad!>Rockem Sockem Mechwarriors>Electrosphere Air Show
>>31657969Deny it your attention.Just block, filter hide.There is no need to respond to nothing. Just ignore.
>>31658071>>Rockem Sockem MechwarriorsThe one uniting theme between our girls is punching things. A lot.
>>31658071Ace Combat, Magical Girls, and Mechs. I hate to choose one, but:Rockem Sockem Mechwarriors
>>31658071>Magical Girl Sparkle Squad!Oh god, I want this.>Rockem Sockem MechwarriorsBut this is what our girls will want, so I'm going with mechwarriors.

>>31658071>Magical Girl Sparkle Squad!Julie might like this one.>Rockem Sockem MechwarriorsMelissa would enjoy this>Electrosphere Air ShowCole
>>31658145I'm probably looking too far into this, but was Carol eating Alice's arm essentially her version of childbirth?
>>31658145I dont think shes gonna turn into a little girl
>>31658172You're looking way too deep into this... So just stop now.
>>31658191 she is of alice's flesh and blood now
>Magical Girl Sparkle Squad!Oh God, I think I get the reference! From Hero Quest!Alice and friends dress up as her!
>>31658220The optimist in me hopes that Carol can grow a third arm, we cut it off and transplant it to Alice. I also wonder if she got some of Alice's memories.
>>31658172What I took from it is that we scored some major loyalty points with Carol. Maxed out loyalty points. Alice would literally give an arm for Carol.So that apocalypse magical invader girl is gonna have a snowball's chance in hell at convincing Carol to betray humanity.>>31658234Hopefully we can see this AT SOME POINT LATER ON.Maybe at another performance?

>>31658071You decide to go to the Rockem Sockem Mechwarriors show. You're pretty sure your girls would get a kick out of that. You all quickly ditch the knocked out frats and make your way to the show area, getting seats just barely minutes before the show starts."LADIES AND GENTLEMEN." You hear the intercoms roar. "ARE YOU READY TO SEE SOME EXTREEEEEEME MECH ACTION!?"The crowd cheers. You look down at the center of the stadium to see a massive pit in the center, where presumably the mechwarriors would do battle. "Well you're in for a treat today! For today's match, in the blue corner, representing Toha Heavy Industries, is the Blade of the East! TSUGUMORI!"On one side of the area, a pair of giant blast doors slowly grind open, and you see a regal and very slim white robot step out. It looked so delicate, but it moved with a speed and confidence that you were sure it was incredibly fast and agile for its size."And in the Red Corner, representing Malyshev Manufacturing, is the Great Bear of Siberia, CHERNO ALPHA!"Another mech lumbers out of the opposite side of the arena. Unlike Tsugumori, Cherno Alpha was big and tough, as was typical of most things Russian. "So, girls, which one do you like better?" You ask."Cherno Alpha, hands down!" Julie whoops. "Look at those fucking fists! It could punch and entire CONTINENT to death with those!""Yeah, Cherno Alpha looks pretty cool.""Man, thing's just big and stupid." Cole frowns. "Tsugumori looks like it could dance around it until the end of time."Then you find yourself under the gaze of all three girls."So which one do you think is gonna win?" They ask.>Tsugumori>Cherno Alpha>No comment.
>>31658763>>Cherno AlphaWho was Tsugumori, I get the Cherno Alpha reference
Rolled 93>>31658763>Cherno AlphaFuck that other weebbot.
>>31658773On second thought, I'm gonna give Cole some backup.Let's root for Tsugumori.
>>31658763"Oh no, I'm not taking sides. Lets just watch and enjoy the Mech-on-Mech action in the very non-lewd sense."
>>31658813Probably a gendum or from another series.
>>31658763>TsugumoriToha Heavy doesn't fuck around
>>31658763>OTHER!"I bet Falynn could make a better mech than those."
>>31658763>Toha Heavy Industries, is the Blade of the East! TSUGUMORI!We Sidonia now.

This is reminding me of that Real Steel movie.
>>31659030Definitely not the first thing I thought of or some others I know.
Rolled 20, 13, 1 = 34>>31659045Are you reaaady for REAAAAAAAAL STEEEEEEEL
>>31659045that's kind of the joke, yeah.Cherno Alpha would run the super heavyweight ring. Gipsy Danger might have a chance in the middleweights but my money would be on some eastern european or SEAN jaegar.
>>31659078True.The real question is: Do Jaeger bots have the shadow function? (Since conn-pod and everything :V)
>>31659105...or they just have pilots in the cockpit drifting as usual.
>>31659146The Real Steel reference made me think they were roughly human-sized.Could go either way.Goddamn I want a game like this now. All the robots. One arena.
>>31659171The real steel part was just them boxing.Only Atom had a shadowbox feature because he was a special snowflake/the protagonist.All the other 'bots used a command console. Either voice actuated or a man with joysticks (sometimes really big joysticks, like Zeus)
lemme nerd out a bit
>>31658763"Oh no, I'm just here to watch, not take sides." You laugh."Five bucks the white one wins." Cole says."You're on!" Julie grins."Pass." Melissa rolls her eyes."Okay! Let's get this fight started!" The announcer bellows. "Ready! FIGHT!"A loud siren blares and the two robots start to move. Tsugumori is gone in a flash, darting and dashing around the bigger and slower Cherno Alpha. The large Russian mech swings a few punches at the smaller mech, but Tsugumori deftly dodges the blows."Man, just one hit and that thing is down." Julie remarks."Assuming he can even hit it." Cole snorts.Cherno Alpha throws a few more punches, forcing Tsugumori to fall back. You wonder, though, how the white mech was going to even dent Cherno Alpha. It looked to have extremely thick armor, designed to shrug of pretty much anything. From Tsugumori's spindly arms, you doubted it had the strength to actually crack that armor.That's when it draws a massive katana mounted in a sheath on its back, pointing it at Cherno Alpha as if taunting it. Cherno Alpha slams both its fists together before charging forward as fast as its thick legs could carry it. And in a flash, Tsugumori boosts forward and beheads Cherno Alpha......or it would have, if it weren't for the fact that Cherno Alpha didn't exactly have a neck to cute. The sword cuts deep into its thickly armored collar. With its momentum lost, Cherno Alpha swats the smaller white mech off like a gnat. From that one small move, you see quite a bit of visible damage on Tsugumori, though it still looked to have some fight in it."Oh yeah, that Jap machine is on its last legs now!" Julie whoops."No way, it can still beat that pile of junk!" Cole insists.>Looks like Cherno Alpha will clearly win.>Tsugumori's still got a chance.>It's still anybody's game.
Rolled 8, 16, 7 = 31>>31659334>>Tsugumori's still got a chance.
>>31659334>Tsugumori's still got a chance.

>>31659334>It's still anybody's game."It anit over until that fat lady sings you two."
>>31659334>It's still anybody's game.if it winds up a tie, i will laugh.
>>31659334>>Tsugumori's still got a chance.
>>31659334"Tsugumori's still got a chance." You assure her.As if it just heard you, Tsugumori's blue eye flares as it gets back up to its feet. Cherno Alpha gets ready to fight, despite the katana still jutting out of its neck. Believing it still had the advantage, the Russian mech lumbers forward to end the fight.In response, Tsugumori bends its knees and leaps in the air, rocket boosters on its back assisting its temporary flight. Cherno Alpha slides to a stop and stares dumbly at the air, briefly dumbfounded. Unfortunately, that brief second is all Tsugumori needs. It drops down from the sky, aiming a might kick at katana, using its moment to push the blade farther in right up to the hilt.The blade must have severed something vital, as Cherno Alpha's head optics flicker rapidly before going dark, and the might mech crashes face first into the ground.And the crowd cheers."And it looks like we have a winner! TSUGUMORI! Those folks at Toha sure know their engineering!"Tsugumori does a polite bow, and then begins limping back to its hangar. Meanwhile, repair crews swarm out to salvage the downed Cherno Alpha. Up above, a massive advertisement for Toha Heavy Industries blazes in the air. "Haha, pay up, Julie." Cole grins smugly."Lucky hit." Julie grumbles.>Food!>Games!>Other
>>31659564>>Games!If they were hungry, people would be saying stuff!wear em down with entertainment first, then food coma to FINISH
>>31659564>>Food!Watch your diets girls!....who am I kidding, get what ya want, its on me!
>>31659564"Okay, let's go get some food. I think it's safe to say we're all hungry." You say."YES! My favorite part of the day!" Cole giggles."I am SO surprised you haven't gained any weight so far." Julie frowns."I'm still confused as to how people up here have so much goddamn food they don't know what to do with it." Melissa sighs. You lead the girls over to one of the many food courts. Fortunately, there's a buffet style restaurant there, which you decide to take. It was probably the most economical decision, considering just how much Cole could eat.However, the moment you step in, Cole rushes off straight or the dessert section.>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.>Eh, let her indulge herself for now.>Other
>>31659769>Eh, let her indulge herself for now.It's just one day.
>>31659769>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.But not in a bad way. Broaden her horizons with MEAT.
>>31659769>>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.Cmon, meat > sugar.
>>31659769>Eh, let her indulge herself for now.But this comes with teasing
>>31659769>>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.>>31659792I LIKE THIS"Hey cole. Deserts are good and all, but I think you and melissa would get a kick out of some really rich savory foods. Like bacon. Prime rib/roast beef if they have it. "
>>31659769>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.Sweets are great all but come on. We're at a park there is a ton of great food to be had that isn't sweet.
>>31659769>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.Give her a fucking steak with barbecue sauce.
>>31659769>>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.Actual food has good stuff too.MEAT. GLORIOUS MEAT.
>>31659769>Eh, let her indulge herself for now.We're here to cut loose, going dessert-happy for one meal won't hurt her.
>>31659769>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.
>>31659769>>"Remind" Cole that she still needs to eat actual food.Remind Melissa the wonders of ice cream
On the subject of food, what is the best kind of sauce for steak?
>>31659769>Eh, let her indulge herself for now.make her happy, raise morale
>>31659868Depends on cut/presentation/seasoning.Gravy is good.Teriyaki beef is good.BBQ is good.Herb marinade/rubSalt+pepper steak is fine by itself.Butter makes everything better, etc
>>31659868Drippings.GOOD MEAT NEEDS NO SAUCE
>>31659919This. Sauce ruins meat.
>>31659840True, but eating too much sweet will end up hurting her stomach later, having something solid will help in the long run
>>31659769"Cole, do you know what else is a dessert? STEAK."
>>31659927I'm sorry, are you a parent stuck in 1985?Kids can eat literally anything and be just fine. We call that "being a kid."Let Cole eat what Cole wants to eat, shit.It's supposed to be a day off from No Fun P-San.
>>31659961What is this, Portugal?
>>31659961she won't resist our meat
>>31659962Knowing straight from experience that heading towards sweets first and eating only sweets you'll get sick.but that might just be me.I'm not saying she shouldn't eat sweets but she should eat something else too
>>31659962As much as we like indulging Cole, we should also make an attempt to help her be able to live a healthy, happy life.Healthy happy daughteru is best daughteru.
>>31659769Merc, if possible can you add the retractable blade and sensor to Melissa's loadout?
>>31660066for that matter, can Faylnn work on Producer's arm? put addons on him as well?
>>31660127Why would he, he has high grade military augs
>>31660151Because fluff is an idiot
>>31660151they probably took many of them out or down graded them when he left service. you really think they would let him walk away with most of mili spec augments?
>>31660177In the beginning we kept a few key augs with us.
>>31659769"Cole." You say, stopping her in mid stride. "Remember, you need to eat some actual food, too.""Oh yeah, that's right! MEAT!" Cole nods. "Thanks, Producer!"Well... it was something, at least.What Cole brings back to the table is a massive collection of literally every meat and sweet that the buffet had to offer. Everything from steak, ribs, sausage, chicken, to ice cream, pastries, and chocolate. "Give it a try!" Cole says, shoving a bowl of vanilla ice cream in front of Melissa."Are you sure...?" Melissa looks at it suspiciously. "It's so... soft and gooey looking.""That's what makes it GOOD!" Cole says. "If you're not gonna eat it, I will!""Fine fine!" Melissa sighs and takes a spoonful. You then see her eyes widen as she experiences her very first sugar high."Holy. Shit." She breathes."I know, right?" Cole grins."Honestly." Julie shakes her head as she spears a large cut of steak and drops it on her plate. "I think Cole likes ice cream just a bit too much.""At least it makes her easy to please." You laugh.With your bellies full and content, you all leave the buffet. Melissa and Cole are still munching down on pastries as you leave. You then receive a text from Jenner.GETTING LATE. SHOULD RENDEZVOUS.You take a look at the sky, and you notice that it is indeed starting to get dark. You send back a reply text telling Jenner to meet you at the center of the park. You make sure Lillith gets the same message as well.(cont)
>>31660211And, of course, Jenner and Lillith somehow beat you to the meeting point. Rin, Niko, and Himawari seem to be on good spirits, and you see Rochelle and Falynn carrying bags full of random prizes and stuffed animals."Do I even want to know?" You ask."Well, for your information, me and Falynn are banned from the carnival games for life." Rochelle says."Which is bullshit, considering all their machines were pretty clearly rigged." Falynn sighs. "I just fixed them to give us an even chance!""Sure you did, Falynn." Jenner shakes her head. "We uh, also beat the high score for every game in the arcade." Rochelle said sheepishly."Psh, nerds." Cole rolls her eyes."We were having a lot of fun on the rides!" Rin smiles. "It was really exciting!""And non of us threw up!" Niko grins. "I'm really proud of you, Himawari!""I just... want to die..." Himawari croaks. It looks like she's on her last legs."Yeah, well, we went on some rides, and we also went to see that big mech fighting show." Julie boasts."DUUUUUUUDE, you saw Rockem Sockem Mechwarriors?!" Falynn's eyes gleam. "Who was there?""A white mech from Toha Heavy Industries called Tsugumori and a big black one from Malyshev Manufacturing called Cherno Alpha.""DUUUUUUDE, TSUGUMORI WAS THERE?!" Falynn squeals. "Damnit, I knew we shouldn't have wasted time rigging -I mean- repairing the claw machines! Did it win?""Quite handily." Melissa nods."DAMNIT!""Okay girls, settle down." You laugh and check your watch and brochure. You probably have time for one more event.>Ferris Wheel>Magical Girl Sparkle Squad Parade>Electroshere Light and Air Show>Other

Against my better judgement, I ate my friend's curry leftovers again, and guess what? I had another weird ass fever dream.From what I remember, I was in a theatre watching a trailer with idols becoming Magical Girls, then producer became a genderbent MG. That's when I threw up. I seriously need to stop.
>>31660405You're a veritable fount of ideas.Okay, so all we have to do is smuggle a companion into clover studios. The question is, who is the most gullible idol of the group?
>>31660405So what was in the curry?

>"H-hey, P-san. I want to be a magical girl just like Heartlancer and Sparkle."
>>31660225Late but fck you all>OtherThat Last Ride that will Kill Himawari's stomach.
>>31660454"Well, I guess we can catch the parade before we leave." You say. "I hear it's really popular.""We better get moving then." Jenner nods. So your whole group heads over to the main parade grounds, where you see a large crowd gathering on both sides of the road to see the attraction. You make it just in time to see the the parade procession arrive. True to form, you see floats with lots of very oddly dressed girls waving at the audience.Now, you never really understood the attraction to magical girls. Apparently it was something that got brought over from Japan which seemed to really catch on with the kids. Then again, you suppose there was a demand for cute, oddly dressed girls with magical powers. Hell, two of the three were basically requirements for idols, as well. You wouldn't be surprised if the girls in the parade were idols doing a gig. "You know, when I heard the Idols of Clover Entertainment were coming, I was a bit wary at first." You hear a man speak up next to you. "Though I'm glad to see you're just here for pleasure and not business.""Well, idols need vacations, too." You say coolly. "And you seem to know who I am. How about introducing yourself?""Ah, so rude." The man chuckles. "Julian Hillman, Producer for Zenith Entertainment."Zenith... that sounded familiar."So I assume it's your girls up there?" You nod to the parade. "Oh yes. They're actually rather good at this, the magical girl thing." Julian grins. "Though just wait, the best part is about to come up!"(cont)
>>31660644Suddenly, the entire parade screeches to a halt. Masked men in black armor then leap out from the crowd and begin swarming around the floats. You can hear children crying and the crowd booing and hissing."Oh no! Boogies are attacking us, Kaleidoscope!" One of the magical girls yells."Well, there's only one thing we can do, Heartlancer!" Another magical girl says. "Let's beat the snot out of them!"With that, the costumed girls leap down to the ground level from their floats and engage in a "fight" with the Boogies. It's all staged, of course, but it all looks very convincing, especially the moves pulled off by the costumed idols. You could definitely tell they were well skilled and drilled in close combat."They're pretty good." You say."Why thank you. I've seen what your idols are capable of, too. I'd have to say, I wouldn't look forward to facing them.">Keep watching the performance.>Talk to Julian about DeRosa.>Other

>>31660662>>Keep watching the performance.let's just enjoy the show for now.
>>31660689Supporting, its called professional networking.
>>31660825But this guy isn't and gaining an ally that has an established shtick would benefit us greatly.
>>31660818A mutual defence pact would be good or some way of working together.We heard from De Rossa himself planning hits on our idols and designs against Zenith's
>>31660850But we're eventually going to take the entire idol world by storm
>>31660890Or...merges, acquisitions and hostile takeovers. We are gonna monopolize this industry!
>>31660913That feels dirty....
>>31660662"Yeah, well, that's idea, isn't it?" You grin."Quite." Julian chuckles.You then return your attention to the parade. While you were tempted talk business with Julian, like you said before, you were here to relax. You watch as Kaleidoscope, Heartlancer, and the other magical girls manage to beat down most of the Boogies, who crawl away back to their hiding spots. However, the parade is then interrupted again by a loud cackle."HAHAHA, FOOLISH MAGICAL GIRLS! While you were distracted by my Boogies, I, the evil Master Witch Rita have stolen your most valuable treasure!" You see a girl in just a ridiculous getup as the magical girls standing at the head of the parade cackling loudly as she holds an item in her hand. It looked like some sort of egg shaped item."Oh my god, she has the Queen's Treasure!" Heartlancer gasps."Yes! And now that I have it, NOTHING will stop me from WORLD DOMINATION!"Suddenly, another dark shape swoops in, snatching the Treasure out of Master Witch Rita's hands."W-wha?!" She blinks.The newcomer then silently approaches the magical girls, and hands the Treasure back to them."M-Magical Vampire Girl?" Kaleidoscope blinks. "Why would you help us?"The newcomer just tilts her head before disappearing in a cloud of smoke."NO! AND I WAS CLOSE!" Master Witch Rita screeches."Alright girls, you know what to do!" Heartlancer yells, pointing her weapon at the now helpless Master Witch.(cont)
>>31660890Taking the world by storm doesn't imply a need to dominate completely.Theres always room for friendly competition among allies.Speaking of which though, I wonder what the Boss' idea is. We need to speak with him for a review session, see what he intents for the company and what direction it should take.
>>31660913Yeah, a friendly merger with Zenith would be ideal. They do their magical girl routine and we have more mainstream singers.I'm sure their magical girl idols sing too. And are combat idols. But all in all, I think we can manage things such that nobody steams on each other's toes. After all, it's a big city and no one idol team can be everyone at once.
>>31660924"RAINBOW SPARKLE SHINE!" All the girls bellow. Suddenly, there's a large flash of multicolored light and a pained shriek. When the light fades, Master With Rita is completely gone."You may have defeated me today, but I'll be back, Magical Girls, and the Treasure WILL BE MINE!" Master Witch Rita's disembodied voice yells."And we'll be there to stop you, because we're..." All of the Magical Girls do some form of victory pose. "The MAGICAL GIRL SPARKLE SQUAD!"The crowd goes absolutely wild. All of the magical girls bow and return to their floats as they all drive off down the road, no doubt to repeat the same performance all over again."So, what did you think?" Julian asks.>The show is certainly impressive.>You girls certainly know how to fight.>Personally? I'm not impressed.>A bit too girly for my tastes, honestly.>Other

>>31660937Well, personally, you found the whole thing a bit girly for your tastes. Then again, you weren't exactly the main audience for this sort of thing, so that was understandable."The show was certainly impressive." You say politely. "And your girls certainly seem to know how to fight.""That they do." Julian nods."Also, I think we both have a mutual 'friend' named DeReso, from Rose Entertainment? Perhaps we could speak about him another time.""Perhaps." Julian says. "It was certainly nice meeting you, Producer."The both of you then exchange cards and part ways. You regroup with your girls."I dunno, those costumes seem a bit too frilly for my tastes." Melissa frowns. "Yeah, well I bet Cole would LOVE to try them on." Julie snickers."She certainly would look very cute in them!" Rin nods."S-shut up!" Cole blushes."Okay girls, quit ganging up on poor Cole here." You laugh. "It's been a long day. Let's go home.">And that's it for tonight! We should be resuming our regular schedule this weekend, so that means Gundam Build Fighters on Friday, Cyberpunk Idols and Saturday, and Magical Girl Hunter on Sunday. Be sure not to miss them!
>>31661114See you next time, Merc.Time to meet The Sniper.
>>31661114Thanks for the thread Merc, this was certainly fun.Also will you had Melissa's blade and senor to her load out?

>>31661114>Magical Girl ColeThanks for running!
>>31661114Thanks for running Merc!Are there enough prizes to grab two small ones for the rival idols?
>>31661154Well I think Morgan had her chance to shine in VMQ2, and we need a new girl. I'm just hoping her shots won't be complete flubs.
>>31661187She didn't shine enough for me but I really hope to have either her, or suou.I just can't picture Mein as an idol
>>31661205Well to be honest, I think I ran out of all of my 20s for her interactions last quest, and Dice Gods would make me roll consistent 1s for her now.
>>31661228Cole is that type of Ido
>>31661239Let other people roll for her
>>31661240Cole is an idol that wants to be a little girl again.The type of idol that makes you want to pamper despite her threats of her kicking your ass.
>>31661262But their okay with getting beat up by her.Also Edese is the true S-Idol
