It's a surreal experience, waking up on the day when everything ends.You were expecting panic, for one. Maybe the odd bit of crying now and then - you've certainly woken up with some of your squad mates with their visors up or their helmets off completely, eyes and cheeks red, wads of used tissues gripped in their gloved fists. What you didn't expect was, beside a placid, calm acceptance - a sudden heaviness in your mood, a...sort of weariness that seeped deep in your bones and settled there. Without getting up from bed, you unlocked your smartphone and immediately searched for your symptoms, but all it came up to was either cancer or clinical depression. Last month's physical checkup came up nothing except the usual, gradual biological degradation that all Culexus go through, so that eliminates the former. The latter...well, you're not too sure about that. Maybe.
>>31752994Your name is Chitose Yuma, a Culexus of the Ninth. Your suit name is Omegon, and you're the only one in your rank that can introduce herself as such to non-Culexus. When you found out that your parents both killed themselves shortly after your contracting, you merely accepted the news with a straight face before breaking down into laughter. Kyoko had to stop your melee drills and take you to one corner to sort yourself out before resuming.And here you are, sitting up on your bed, clutching your smartphone in your hand before finally silencing the beeping alarm with a lazy tap of your thumb.That was the four-hour alarm for Walpurgisnacht, by the way. Four hours until the most powerful Witch there ever was breaks through the veil behind reality and starts breaking shit.Four hours left until you - and everyone you care about - dies.It's exciting, in a way, like you're waiting in line for a root canal appointment.That feeling of cold, uncertain dread knowing that it's going to hurt like a fucking bitch, even with the anesthesia - but with the consolation that it's a good thing, and that you'll feel much better about everything afterwards....Okay, wow. Now you're just grasping at straws here.Maybe there is something to this clinical depression thing. You should probably drop by Haruka's silent room later. To ask about it and stuff.Just before you say goodbye for the last time.[1/2]
>>31753016Seriously, though - it's not like it came out of the fucking blue. Walpurgisnacht was predicted months before they started announcing the weekly alarms, then the daily alarms, and then the hourly alarms. Prognosticators and Culexus from every Officio who gave a rat's ass about the end of the world began to connect with each other again, either through long-distance pulsings or, more conventionally, VoIP - comparing notes, comparing predictions, and basically just shouting each other down on just when this huge motherfucker is going to break through the warp and kill everything.It wasn't until Miss Malal, the first Culexus of the Ninth, and undeniably the most powerful - she can make a girl throw up her lunch, breakfast, and DINNER the night before from an entire mile away - stepped forwards and declared, in a loud voice, when and where it will happen. Right down to the second.Everyone shut up after that, for approximately ten seconds. You were there, you kept the time. And then they started arguing again.After half a day's worth of arguing, cajoling, and downright threatening, they finally settled on a time. 11 AM, exactly five months away from that meeting. They narrowed it down to five locations, with nearly all the Officios attending volunteering most of their active staff to the effort. Each of the locations would have an assembled contingent of at least 500 Magical Girls, ready to kill whatever manifests there as quickly and judiciously as possible - and the rest immediately rushing to provide reinforcements. It would be a five-prong pincer attack - and in their words, it was a plan that couldn't fail.No one mentioned the First abstaining from this meeting, however. That was the giant pink elepant in the fucking room. Not even one of their seers, which rumor had it that even their legendary Warmaster was a part of.[2/3]
>>31753036..Well. It's not like even just one of them could tear apart Walpurgisnacht just by sneezing at them, right? The other, lowlier Officios can do it themselves, yes. It just takes a lot more time and a lot more bodies and a lot more daughters and sisters and friends dying, that's all.Anyway, it's...7 AM. Walpurgisnacht, as your phone gleefully reminded you, isn't until four hours later. The entire Officio had already begun preparations two days before - and you know that everyone's been getting ready to get deployed to each of the five predicted locations. Sayaka and Kyoko's departure will be around in an hour or so. Yours...well, that'll be much till later. Probably why Malal didn't flinch when everyone in your rank asked to be able to sleep in.It's here, as you reach for your suit, that a banging noise comes from your quarter's metal door. It's no mystery who that could be - you're in the Culexus floor, which no other Magical Girl can stand to be in (unless they're Kyoko). And you're pretty sure the red-haired Eversor doesn't have fists bigger than your entire face."Yuma!" The cheerful voice of Cavefish booms from behind three inches of beaten solid steel, enhanced by a vox speaker. "Breakfast's up! We're getting extra mashed potatoes for today, too!"...Of course. If there's anything that can stave off the depression of impending demise for Cavefish, it's the promise of extra helpings. Almost like Kyoko in a way, except, you know, seven feet tall and has muscles on top of her muscles.How do you respond?Some other time, Cavefish. I'm brooding here.Hold on, let me get ready.Pretend to be asleep. Maybe she'll go away if you stay quiet long enough.
HA HAFINALLY TIME FOR MAGICAL GIRLS

>When you found out that your parents both killed themselves shortly after your contracting, you merely accepted the news with a straight face before breaking down into laughter. Kyoko had to stop your melee drills and take you to one corner to sort yourself out before resuming.Wow.
>>31753275Too many Shadowruns, really. But very sweet.
>>31753281That's okay, if she refused Kyubey was going to have them killed out of courtesy.
>>31753296Oh yea. I forgot about that.
>>31753275>I will then take your bones, still alive and in great pain, and make them into a chair. I will call it "My Screaming Chair". Every day I will sit in it and listen to you scream.
Wasn't Yuma mistreated by her parents, and that's why Kyouko wanted to get her away from them?
>>31753289I'm not sure you're cut out for this thread.
>>31753339>>31753340Just confirming. Explains the laughing.
>>31753359I write for fun, I appreciated that particular scene for it's ualities. The shadowruns I constructed are far too insane to be shared.
>>31753275Does the person who archives these threads have actual inside information like that, or is he just messing with us due to the rampant suspicion in the previous thread.
>>31753410Probably the latter.
>>31753410>is he just messing with us due to the rampant suspicion in the previous threadThat. Entirely.
>>31753410It could have been any anon, so either is possible.Statistically its probably someone messing, but there is a non-zero chance that ut could be a thing. FWIW, I think it actually is Midori. She acted "right".
>>31753436That's just what an insider would say to deflect!Lovely finished drawing.
Anybody have a highres image of The Shooter?
>>31753078 >>31753082 >>31753090You glance at your smartphone once more, before finally locking the screen and tossing it onto your bed. Another series of deafening knocks - you're pretty sure Cavefish is just punching the fuck out of your door now - and it's here that you yell for her to give you a fucking minute to get ready. It's not the end of the wo--...Well, it is, but she doesn't have to be so fucking antsy about it. You got four hours left."Alright! Don't take too long, I'll go around and see if the others need a wake-up call, too!"You shake your head as you hear her heavy - but quick - footsteps thunder down the corridor. Fucking Cavefish, still as energetic as a hopeless newbie even though she's been wearing the suit twice as long as you've been. Which is in this kind of rank, a pretty fucking long time, considering she hasn't crumbled into dust in her own suit just yet.You stand up and greet your limited edition Miracle Midori x Murder Mayumi Volume 1 Cover Poster - personally autographed by Green Green herself, laminated and framed - before shucking off your sleeping gown and lumbering into the shower. A quick, contemplative wash - whereupon the 'cat ears' in your hair still refused to settle, even after three soakings (an effect of your first ever Magical Girl transformation) - a quick drying-off, and it's here that you begin to sheathe yourself into your Anima Speculum, or more commonly known as a Culexus Hardsuit. Enveloping yourself in its tight, confining comfort once more....Probably for the last time in your life.With the pressure seals in your gloves, suit and boots activated, you hold out a hand towards your helmet, the plain white protective skull-case sitting on top of your closet - and it quickly snaps across the room and onto your gloved palm. Turning it over to glance at your reflection on the smooth, egg-like surface of it, you let out a sigh. [1/2]
>>31753436....I'm not sure if this pleases me or confuses me. Chiaki just doesn't seem like bride material.
>>31753359You want Paranoia? I will give you Paranoia. Chiaki is Homucifer. This is the reason Homucifer why we didnt have Homucifer appear other than in the flashback. Because we are her. Also, there are only three people in this Universe we know of who have the power to make people forget this hard: Malal which we already confirmed didnt do it, that one Pleidas Saint who can rewrite memories, but the saints dont seem familiar with Murderface and finally Homucifer. Remember how the three Stooges told us that to save Madoka we need to end Homucifer? Because they didnt know that Homucifer and Chiaki Matsuda are the same person. Homucifer made herself forget and then sealed her memories somewhere deep inside her, where we cant reach her. This is also why one of the mirrors is empty. Its probably part of Homucifers grand scheme. We are literally the Magical Girl Satan and forgot about it, guys. Enjoy your shadowruns.
>>31753275>>31753410I have zero inside information, I just take what I read in thread and conjure up something which is, hopefully, not a blatant spoiler.>>31753436Maybe a little bit of this as well.Just a little...
>>31753480So how do you explain the seeing with Haruka, where we saw Homucifer?
>>31753480But Homura did nothing wrong
>>31753475Four hours until you buy the farm and you haven't even earned the right to paint a skull on your helmet. For fuck's sake, it's not even really that hard to do so, when you get right down to it - you just needed to send your psychic presence physically across time and space, long enough to see how a friend of yours dies in the future. It doesn't really matter which friend it is, just that you manage to get that vision and be able to hold onto it long enough to show another Culexus, who will vouch for you. You've already done that, actually. Enough times to get physically ill.It's just that for all those times, all you saw was Malal, dying a death she clearly didn't deserve.And there's no way you're going to show that to anyone.Because it's not real. It's not even going to happen.Because if anyone is strong enough to get through this alive, it's her.And you're not going to jinx her or get her off her game just because you want a fucking skull on your helmet....Well, enough time spent navel-gazing, you have four hours left to enjoy. You cram your helmet down on top of your head, wincing as the tight fit pulls slightly at your hair - and with a hiss of activating air scrubbers and pressure seals, it affixes itself tight to the rest of the suit. Your retinal display blinks to life, showing your heart rate, blood pressure, and the most recent chirps made to your account. You blink all of these away, before turning to the door, and making to open it for Cavefish.You stop, though, as you see the reindeer mascot onesie that Kyoko bought for you some weeks ago. During that...Maximum Christmas Secret Santa thing.Ignore it, and greet Cavefish normally.Wear it for the rest of the day. See if you can get a laugh or two out of Cavefish, or even Malal.
>>31753478>Chiaki just doesn't seem like bride material.Are you crazy? She's the bestest bride!

Culexus get some sort of future projection ability?Interesting
>>31753540Too tired to go back and check, but did the homusquad not recognize the Homura that Chiaki saw during the seeing (which Chiaki decribed) to be Homucifer?
>>31753504[X]Ignore it, and greet Cavefish normally.
>>31753581I think we knew that already. Its what QB uses to predict witches and the like. The other officios use other future seeing methods like seers and whatever. If I recall correctly, Malal for example foresaw the witch in whose barrier Chiaki appeared and sent people there (saving Chiakis life in the process).Presumably its not totally foolproof though.
>>31753504[x] Wear it
>>31753630I suspect that one was outright cheatery, actually.

Okay! Now that the voting period is closed, here's the current progress on our 200 threads Chiaki Paper Doll! I've got a list of thirty costumes, and many more that I need to add, so I doubt I can take any more requests. Next on my list is giving her a Commissar costume.
>>31753641Maybe that specific case, but if it was somehow abnormal for Malal to foresee things like that then people would have called her on it, which implies it was something she could do without cheating.
>>31753685Awesome!Is the next thread 200? Or was it the one after that.
>>31753685Naked Homu when?
>>31753685Neat. Is Bride Chiaki on the list?
>>31753701I believe this is thread 198.
>>31753662hey NECO good to see you would you were the the reindeer in this situation?>>31753685Great, will be waiting anxiously for the next costumes!
And does seeing Chiaki wearing Homucifer's costume somehow tie in to the current shadowruns discussion??? Scary! >>31753701Think it's the one after>>31753702Never!>>31753705It is now!
>>31753716I think reindeer outfits are basically super adorbs, nya.
>>31753504>[x]Wear it for the rest of the day. See if you can get a laugh or two out of Cavefish, or even Malal.
>>31753734And definitely not because reindeer costumes are an M costume.
>>31753722I'm looking forward to deito dress.
>>31753685It looks good!
>>31753722>It is now!So much homu.
>>31753733Which one? I think she would look really good in Rei's white plugsuit or maybe Mari's pink one
>>31753767It has to be Rei's so Midori can be Shinji.It's important, darn it.
>>31753767None of the above.Base it on her MG outfit
>>31753767Violet and red plugsuit, of course.
>>31753767I would prefer white, but pink would be amusing for obvious reasons.
>>31753767S is for suffering, so Shinji's.
>>31753722I want deito costume. Skirt. Blouse. Purse. The works.Far more important than random cosplay.
>>31753734But most costumes that are made into pyjamas are super adorbs
>>31753799Wait, do you mean the outfit she wore to the date with Midori or just design a new date outfit for her?
>>31753504[x]Ignore it, and greet Cavefish normally.
>>31753509Chiaki's pouting is a miracle of the universe.
>>31753814I meant the former. I don't think my brain could handle a new deito costume, but I'm not going to say it wouldn't be amusing. Like Satsuki dressed casual was. A shock.
So Hat, Dan, Decu and everyone else working with him have plans for thread 200.What about Anon, gonna do something special? Aside from getting plastered, of course.Pic related for me. Hope to finish this before thread 200
I haven't read these threads in a while, did I come in time for THE HAPPENING?
>>31753875That looks awesome.
>>31753875Kinda botched up the positioning there, so here's a fixed version>>31753893Amazing~
>>31753915It's basically always happening.
>>31753480That is factually wrong. Malal is / was being haunted by the actual Honucifer.
>>31753999Before Chiaki appeared in the timeline
>>31754019Don't get timelines into this otherwise one can asspull absolutely everything
>>31753999The multiverse is broken enough that these are not mutally exclusive possibilities.
>>31753999she stopped seeing homucifer after she contracted if I remember correctly
>>31754019Thinking about it, if there can be multiple Homus running around this timeline, why not multiple Homucifers?
>>31754036SO wait if we were haunting Mala as homulucifer then does that means she is haunting us as pinky?
>>31754032>TIMELINES>Is such a thing even possible?
>>31754059Fucking no, it happened in he middle of the Kharn rescue mission?
>>31754064Why not multiple pinkies?
>>31754059Only because of the Culexus suit.Homus still there, she just cant see her.
>>31754071No, Faust/Pinky is the looping, universal Madoka, a split personality of Ultimate Madoka. Malal is this timeline's Madoka.We are apparently not this timeline's Homura, who has been said to exist somewhere. That would imply we're Demon Homura through process of elimination, who we haven't seen show up outside of weird dream-space since Chiaki appeared.The stuff we heard from the Deagle's spirits implies otherwise, that the "Transcendent One" is a separate entity that we have to destroy, and that there are actually multiple Homura's from other timelines. They still might be mistaken.
>>31754064Nothing says its impossible, but I would guess for story purposes there is only one Homucifer and only one Pinky.Those two are (as the Homusquad called Homucifer) transcendent entities and having multiple ones running around would probably be both confusing and even disappointing (would take a lot away of the uniqueness of Pinky for example).
>>31753927Ponytail Chiaki when ?
>>31754110my mistake then had that impression for some reason
>>31754136Well, from a certain point of view the Trancendent One is Chiaki in the sense that all of them are in a way just different incarnations/aspects of one original soul or something bizarre.I do not however really think that Chiaki is Homucifer in disguise. Why would a superpowerfull "transcendent" being like Homucifer want to become physical/mortal and also forget everything. What would be the point?
>>31754175>What would be the point?She realized that everything she did was wrong.
>>31754192But she knew that from the start.
>>31754175Some people get off to that.
>>31754192In which case she would be far better equipped to try and fix things using her full abilities as a transcendent entity, rather than as a "mere mortal".
>>31753525 >>31753528 >>31753536 >>31753549You ignore the reindeer mascot onesie. It was funny back then, and you'll cherish that memory for as long as you live, but it isn't really the time for that. You wouldn't want to make fun of the situation by wearing it, either - although you have the sneaking suspicion that Kyoko would actually approve of it.Cavefish announces her presence with another series of buffeting knocks - and you open the door not one moment sooner. Had you been any slower, she would've probably broken right through the fucking thing, and you'd have to pay for it to be replaced....Not that it's going to matter four hours from now, of course, but it's the principle of the thing.In any case, it's here that you look up - and up - and up some more, until you're practically craning your head skyward. Yes, Cavefish is that fucking tall - she's fucking filling up your doorway with how ungodly tall she is. Seven feet of pure iron muscle, grit, and a smile that never fades no matter how shitty it gets, or how much life actually shat on her. Malal had told you that she had to build Cavefish's hardsuit from scratch herself, she was that huge.Make no mistake, though. For someone her size, Cavefish had always been - well, a melee monster to rival Sayaka in strength, Kyoko in speed, and Miss Malal in sheer fucking brutality. If she hadn't been contracted as a Culexus, then she'd have certainly made for excellent Eversor stock - even Kharn herself was impressed by her, if a bit intimidated by her build. Sadly, Cavefish wasn't much of a Culexus, with barely enough of the aptitude in her to make a Magical Girl throw up. At best, she could give one a really bad case of acid reflux, if she focused hard enough. But Malal took her on anyway, first for the added muscle, and then for her ability to keep a squad together even during times of panic. She became the rock that everyone stabilized themselves by.[1/2]
>>31754175A better question.Who else might want her to?
>>31754146Seeing how the karma buildup affected everyone...>Transcendent Mami>Transcendent Sallaka>Transcendent KyoubroEven if they haven't had a catalyst like Madoka's True Wish or Homucifer's Love, shouldn't they all be capable of ascending?
>>31754064If I remember correctly, besides Chiaki and Homucifer, there is at least one other Homura running around. I believe it was this timeline's native Homura.
>>31754226"GOOD MORNING, YUMA-CHAAAAAN!" The tanned, platinum blonde-haired giant booms down at you, the gleeful grin on her unhelmed face threatening to make you return the expression. Her helmet - a heavily-customized number, with its own skull paintjob AND the jawbone of a shark she killed with her own hands - is tucked underneath one suit-encased arm, the bulging musculature underneath stretching the leather and threatening to rip it apart. "Come on, quick! Let's get to the mess hall before the others wake up! There's--"Extra mashed potatoes. You know, you heard her. You shake your head, forcing yourself to smile up at the taller, beefier Culexus. You return her greeting a moment later, after having just remembered to."Aw, don't tell me you've got a case of the Mondays too," Cavefish frowns. "Cheer up! It's just the start of the week, and we're going to beat all the sleepyheads on this floor to extra grub if we hop to it! And they're healthy carbs, too, for energy!"...Sometimes you wonder if Cavefish exists on some other plane of existence other than yours. No one should be this upbeat, four hours into the end of the world.How do you respond?Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?The Mondays? The fucking MONDAYS? Cavefish, in four hours, we're fucked. Who gives a shit about extra mashed potatoes?Other.
>>31754255>smile. "Thanks, let's go get that grub."
>>31754255>[x]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?No need to be a kill-joy.
>>31754255>[x]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?Yuma isn't a bitch.

>>31754255>[x]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?Let's not ruin our final hours by being a stick in the mud too much.
>>31754255>[X]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?I am saddened by the knowledge that Cavefish will soon be no more.

>>31754245Actually, Madoka was the only one who was affected by the karma buildup. Since Homura's wish centered on Madoka, the karma of the previous timelines added up until she was powerful enough to wish for literally anything.
>>31754245Yes and no.Madokas ascention is the result of her wish and homus wish interacting.Homus ascention is the result of Madoka trysting her and her rebellion.Everyone else is always an exponential power gap behind homu and madoka... though Sayaka is closest because - fairly uniquely - she can tap her witch form for power.Shes probablu the closest to another ascended form.
>>31754255>[X]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?
>>31754294I'm amused by the amount of buildup for a character that canonically has to die.
>>31754238Well a bit unrelated to this message specifically, but I went back to the archive and looked at the seeing thread. Its a bit confusing.First (when the seeing starts), Homura sees a brief silhouette of someone with blue eyes who hates and loathes Chiaki.There was a picture included.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28101580/images/1383579325333.jpgThen after the seeing, we see it again, except this time the blue eyed person has what looks like Homucifer with violet eyes floating above her.Another picture was provided.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28192140/images/1384011546082.jpgDunno what that means.
>>31754255[X]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?I am so depressed right now.
>>31754314Sayaka and Nagisa, since they're dead witches, like all the magical girls Madokami saves
>>31754175>What would be the point?She went into hiding after it became apparent that she no longer is able to suppres Madokami or because Pinky emerged.Maybe she doesnt have the power to duke it out with Pinky heads on.Pinkys own forgetfullness may or may not be related to Homucifers power. She herself said that she is not sure whether we are Homura or not. This on the other hand begs the question: If this world has another Homura does Pinky torment her too?Pinky also seems to be aware that Homucifer exits yet didnt imply whether she dealt with her before or not.Also, the last appearence of Homucifer was long before Murderface/Chiaki showed up. This is also the reason why Malal didnt tell anyone outright who Murderface is. She KNEW that Murderface/Girl A is in fact the Homucifer that appeared before her in the past. Malal feeds Chiaki with tidbits of Information through the Diary so she doesnt find out about herself.Game over, man, gamver over.
>>31754255[X]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?
>>31754245They are already dead.
>>31754313Not quite. Homu was entrusted to be Madokas mortal avatar at the end of PMMM... hence the wings and bow.Then, she stole some of madokas power in Rebellion. So, Homu is up there in the power stakes.
>>31754338Tip for anyone getting the anti-hotlink image: Add a question mark to the end of the URL.
>>31754255[x]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?Yes.
How could you call something done out of love, wrong?It was for and out of love.AI YO
>>31753799It's not a purse, it's a manly bag!
>>31754376Thats not Homura is it (the lower figure)? Homura does not have blue eyes right? Though it does look like theres something vaguely like the shield attached to her arm?Homucifers chosen champion or something? Maybe the Homura of this timeline that for some reason has blue eyes due to timeline variation and is working with Homucifer?
>>31754255>>[X]Alright, alright. Let's go get that grub. Just calm down, yeah?
>>31754255Using this one mostly because it's still funny.
>>31754398Love justifies everything. Especially murder-suicide.
>>31754473>Love justifies everything.It can reshape the world.
>>31754314>>31754245>Homus ascention is the result of Madoka trysting her and her rebellion.I dont agree with that. From what Homura says after she changed abd before the changed it seemed to me as if she transcendent witchdom. This is also implied by the new soulgem/grief seed she recieved.Think about it, a witch is a being that is made of a girls despair. Incubators assumed that a Witch is the final form of a Magical Girl. Homura accepted her despair instead of cursing the world as a witch. She accapted that despair and lonlyness are facettes of the feeling called love just like hope. She achieved the true final form of a magical girl. She is the third and final stage of a magical girls existence! Rejoice, anons, we have witnessed the dawn of a new era!
>>31754238>>31754356>Pinkys own forgetfullness may or may not be related to Homucifers powerIts MalalIt's ALWAYS fucking Malal.
>>31753226>actual Walpurgisnacht Night is comingYe gad.
>>31754510...and then she got rescued.And then she stole Maddies powerAnd then she shoved Madoka into her love dungeon.I have speculations about what happened after that.
>>31754583Would you mind sharing with the rest of the class?With all the details. And pictures.
>>31754510>>31754583>And then she shoved Madoka into her love dungeon.This is commonly refered to as Love Shack.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leohcvmf8kM
>>31754552Walpurgisnacht already means «The Night of Walpurgis». «Walpurgisnacht Night» is plain retarded.
>>31754646Double nights.Really fuckin dark.

Anyone have the gif of Chiaki walking in on Midori and Wendy fucking? I need it. For science.
>>31755000Have this one as a bonus, for science!
>>31755015No one asked for this one
>>31755067I might have.
>>31755015>>31755000You are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you.
>>31755067C'mon, even Kharn said that the cat is fine too.But I'm sure she liked the rabbit better.

>>31755090Nevr 4getNrvr 5give
Ramenrump pls go.
>>31755232I dunno if we put her next to Wendy similarly attired I think she could stay
>>31754265 >>31754274 >>31754279 >>31754281You raise both gloved hands in a placating manner. Alright, alright, you tell her. The both of you'll get that grub she's so eager for. But maybe she could relax just a bit? The mess hall's just down the corridor, anyway, so there's no need to rush.Cavefish blinks down at you in silence for a few seconds, as if your appeal for calm and sanity had only just begun to sink in - before she laughs and gives your shoulderplate a hard, comradely slap. "Hah! That's the Cat-ears we know and love! Good on ya for not fallin' into the funk that everyone's just drowning in lately!"You steady yourself against the doorjamb, before checking to see if she's dislocated your shoulder. ...Doesn't feel like it. You shake your head, before looking back up, smiling behind your faceplate. Well, she shouldn't blame the other Culexus, really, you start. It isn't like there's no good reason for that funk, in and of itself. If anything, at least they're just moping around instead of...well, defecting to another Officio or something, or making a break for the Seventh.It's here that her nickname for you sinks in, as well. Cat-ears? She's never going to let you live that down, is she? Even now?"But it's really cute!" Cavefish giggles - truly a sight to see and hear, considering that she can probably lean down and eat you if she's feeling that peckish. "Even Miss Malal was laughing in her helmet! Well, she sounded like she was gargling mouthwash or something, but there was definitely a reaction when she first saw you!"You let out a sigh, but it's more theatrical than an outright gesture of exasperation. You've tried again and again to get rid of the 'ears' that your hair had decided to form whenever you went unhelmed. You thought it was just static, or simply something that could be washed away with expensive shampoo and conditioner - but no matter what you did, those tufts of hair kept lifting up in the shape of cat ears. [1/2]
>>31755208>Nevr 4get it was the fault of the people who voted to give a big long rant full of information>Nrvr 5give those idiots who try to make Chiaki look like a toolftfyWe already got our revenge. Make like an ice queen and let it go.
>>31755250It's earned you enough giggles sent towards your direction, especially during basic - as well as the rebuke of Miss Malal herself, until she learned the truth. You learned to ignore it by just keeping your helmet on as much as you could, and simply opting to push your visor up whenever you needed to take a breather from your helmet's retinal display.You realize now that any other day, you'd have insisted that Cavefish forget the nickname ever existed, to address you by either your former name, or your suit name - but with only four hours to go until you go to the big Deli Heal Agency in the sky, it doesn't really matter all that much, does it?"W-well, I guess if it really annoys you, Yuma-chan, I'll stop calling you that." The seven-foot-tall Culexus smiles bashfully, knuckling her forehead with one massive, gloved fist. "I know how it feels, being called an annoying nickname, even by your friends. They think it's some kind of cute pet name, but it really just rustles your jimmies something fierce, but you can't say anything because you're friends, and--"You hold up another hand, and shake your head. Cat-ears is fine, you tell her. It's a cute pet name, and it's silly of you to get upset by it."Really? Hah!" Cavefish's eyes light up, along with her grin. "Alright, Yuma-chan! From now on and forever, you're my Cat-ears!"...Yeah. That sounds okay.Now, how about the both of you go on ahead and grab that grub? "Sure! Let's go, before the other dildoes come to their senses!"And so you do. Closing your quarters behind you - leaving behing the reindeer onesie, your Magical Girl costume, and your MM x MM memorabilia - you make your way towards the Culexus Floor Mess Hall, side-by-side with Cavefish.[2/3]
>>31755244But then she wouldn't be holding the leash.
>>31755250>Well, she sounded like she was gargling mouthwash or somethingJesus, why am I getting hard.
>>31755264Walking with the older, taller girl in times like these had always made you feel like...well, the sidekick. The best friend instead of the protagonist. It's not hard to see or understand why - Cavefish is fucking strong, fucking ripped, and very...simple, too. Not stupid simple, just uncomplicated and without guile, without deception. One of those few people without a dishonest bone in her body. Then again - and you feel just the slightest guilty thinking this - you could probably take her if you wanted to. Malal had indirectly taught you how to blow out someone's Soul Gem, and you've been practicing on the small, one-shot liquor bottles you've been stealing from your airplane rides. They're not anywhere close to the real thing, but you can reliably sight where they'd be on a person and burst them with a pulsed thought, even during sparring, or from a distance away.Yeah. You could take Cavefish if you wanted to. Just blast her Soul Gem into pieces while she's about to break you in half. See the light in her big, friendly eyes go out as her soul vaporizes into nothing--You blink from behind your helmet's faceplate, before shaking your head.Stop it. Just...stop it. There's no sense thinking about shit like this, you'll ruin your appetite for breakfast....Not that it'll taste like anything but ash by the time you're eating, anyway.The Incarnation of Despair bursting through into realspace and fucking everything up in less than four hours kinda steals the gusto from any meal.[3/4]
>>31755244Is this similar enough for you?
>>31755255...That's exactly what I meant. But that drawing was one of the few highlights.
>>31755292After a few more moments, you make it to the mess hall. Just like Cavefish predicted, it's empty and quiet, with the remaining members of your rank having decided to just sleep in until deployment. The only activity you can see are from the overhead TV monitors set to display the international news channels, as well as the automated conveyor belt that wound around the room carrying small plates full of covered, untouched food."Come on!" Cavefish all but squeaks in excitement, dragging you to the nearest table and pulling out a chair for you before taking a seat herself. Her helmet is dumped on the table with a solid, metallic thunk, its skull paintjob permanently fixed into a toothy grimace due to the jaw wired to its base. More clicks follow shortly after that - the noises of Cavefish taking plate after plate from the conveyor belt, soon filling the table between you of individually-plated breakfast portions. Is she seriously going to eat all of these...?"Of course not!" Cavefish looks hurt. "Some of them are for you, Cat-ears!"Ah. Right. That's...yeah. You'll try to eat.The moment you do so is the moment the news catches your eye. It's a report in English, describing how five category-five supertyphoons have been discovered to have developed over five different countries, all at the same time, and how the governments of each country are scrambling to evacuate the affected areas.So it's...it's supertyphoons, now? That's the best the mutant cats came up with?"Well, it IS effective," Cavefish replies, and you blink to see her talking with her mouth full of mashed potatoes. "People want to get out of that kind of thing really quickly. And - mph - it's better'n telling them that a really big and ugly Witch is coming, right?"How do you react?Address the elephant in the room. "Why are you so calm? You do realize what today is, right?"Shrug, and start on breakfast. "Maybe people will actually react better if we told them the truth."
>>31755318>[x]Shrug, and start on breakfast. "Maybe people will actually react better if we told them the truth."
>>31755318>[X]Shrug, and start on breakfast. "Maybe people will actually react better if we told them the truth."It's obvious she's nervous too, but wants to enjoy what little time she has left.
>>31755310That's Dan Kim for you, suffering made cute and cute things made suffer. Also butts.
>>31755318>[X]Address the elephant in the room. "Why are you so calm? You do realize what today is, right?"Come on, she is not Murderface.
>>31755318[X] just eat.The second is just hilariously naive. How is telling people that today is the end of the v world's going to help?And there's no point in blowing up at Cavefish.
>>31755318>[x]Shrug, and start on breakfast.
>>31755318[x]Address the elephant in the room. "Why are you so calm? You do realize what today is, right?"
>>31755268 that's half the fun! they could both be tugging on hour leash that's held by Chiaki. Or Mami could be holding all three leashes
>>31755318>Shrug, and start on breakfast. "Maybe people will actually react better if we told them the truth."We're acting just as 'calm' as she is.
>>31755353Ah shit, I knew I forgot to craft something.Chiaki hasn't been officially appointed as the Ninth Warmaster yet, right?I'm contemplating on whether to put The Shooter emblem on the Warmaster cap I'll customize or just put skulls on.
>>31755305Well I was hoping they would both be dressed like Wendy and leashedShared hardship builds familiarity after all
>>31755318>[x]Shrug, and start on breakfast. "Maybe people will actually react better if we told them the truth."Why does Cavefish have to die?
>>31755318[x]Shrug, and start on breakfast. "Maybe people will actually react better if we told them the truth."I wonder what it would be like when we decide to let people know about the things that make people kill themselves.
>>31755439Because she like many is too good to survive in this worldWe can only hope that at this time, Madokami still spirits away girls souls before they die and are consumed by the evil alter ego that makes a mockery of everything she wished for
>>31755318>[X]Address the elephant in the room. "Why are you so calm? You do realize what today is, right?"I'm curious
>>31755430Well, both were dating Murderface at some point. That's plenty of shared hardship.
>>31755475Pretty sure they just get their soul gems all busted up.
>>31755318>>31755429Would you consider a golden katana, too?
Without the details, it looks like a goofy sort of pirate costume...
>>31755542Golden cutlassGo with the pirate theme
>>31755542I've actually started on the Golden Katana. My biggest concern for it is hand painting the dragon on the sheathe.
>>31755736Benevolent Overlord will be pleased."Hahaha wow, that's fucking awesome" -Deculture
>>31755768Haha. I'm glad and a bit scared now, hope I don't fuck it up badly.
>>31753893Nothing as impressive as Dan, Hat, or this Anon but I have something ready. Possibly something bigger if I finished Yuu by thread 200.
>>31754166>Hat-chan>pony tail ChiakiHahaha~
>>31755340 >>31755351 >>31755427You shrug here, before flipping your helmet's visor up and starting on your breakfast - a plated portion of scrambled eggs. Everyone knows you've got a dim view of the whole 'lying to the world about the existence of Magical Girls' thing - but with it not just being a cover but actually part of the modus operandi of the First Officio, there's not much you can actually do about it but play along. But wouldn't it be...easier, if people knew about you and accept you? Sure, people get out of the way of supertyphoons well enough, and that's convenient in getting the potential body count low, but is the convenience worth it?Cavefish blinks as she crunches down on a mouthful of bacon, and she swallows before replying. "Er...yeah? I mean, it's common sense, right? If we have to explain to the entire world in general what a Witch is, then they'll want to find out where they come from." She taps on her reinforced breastplate, basically just a slab of ceramite welded onto the leather. "Pretty and sparkling Magical Girls! And where do these Magical Girls come from?" She gestures towards you with both hands, mouth in a wide, open smile, gloved gingers wiggling....Incubators?"Aliens! Freakin' aliens, Cat-ears!" The tall, musclebound blonde shakes her head, before reaching over and snatching more plated portions from the conveyor belt. "Everyone'll start panicking, for one, scaring each other out of their minds, screaming that aliens are takin' over. Then those who're calm enough to think about it are gonna be tinfoiled the fuck out, thinking that their governments are being controlled by aliens all along, and these aliens control young, pretty girls and turning them into killin' machines." [1/2]
>>31756097Cavefish pauses here to polish off three plated portions of mini-sausages. "And the rest who's left - the rest that's stopped to really, really think about what they just found out? They'll be rounding up the rest and goin' on a crusade to 'free the world from the alien menace', puttin' guns in people's hands and shooting everyone up that's got a sparkly stone in their hand. Doesnt't have to be a Soul Gem, just something shiny and sparkly enough." She drains her glass of iced tea. "After that, are they still going to be evacuating on time, Cat-ears?"...But all of that's just plain assumption! She doesn't really know if people'll really act like that--"People do stupid stuff when they're scared of something," Cavefish nods here. "I know how stupid they can get, too. I don't need to see as far into the future as Miss Malal to know that."Hnh. Maybe...maybe so, but...there has to be a way, you insist. Magical Girls can't just pretend to be cosplayers all their lives--"It's been working so far, honestly." Your fellow Culexus shrugs her massive shoulders again. "And the Incubators're happy. I don't see the point in trying to fix things when they're not broken."You frown here, and open your mouth to offer your rebuttal - when a slight beeping inside your helmet cuts you off. You blink here, before holding up a finger at Cavefish, and then flipping your visor closed.[2/3]
>>31756110Your retinal display comes alive once more, and you blink again to see that it's muted your vox-speaker to the outside word. Private vox only, your display read. No one will be able to hear what you're talking about, or who you're talking to.And the one who's initiated the private vox contact is none other than Malal herself."Omegon?" The Culexus Rank Leader's vox-corrupted voice is a bit cleaner through the actual vox, but still harsh and emotionless. "Oh, you're up. Good, I'll need you to run a few errands for me."Oh. That's...great. Sure. Yeah. Last few hours of your life here, and you're going to spend it running errands. Perfect."Glamorous, isn't it?" Malal chuckles. "How's your last breakfast taste like?"How do you respond?Tastes like I'm going to die in less than four hours, Miss Malal. Now, what do you want me to do?Is this how everyone gets through days like these? With gallows fucking humor?Stay silent.
Rolled 2, 2, 9 = 13>>31756132>[x]Tastes like I'm going to die in less than four hours, Miss Malal. Now, what do you want me to do?We can do gallows too... poorly

>They'll be rounding up the rest and goin' on a crusade to 'free the world from the alien menace', puttin' guns in people's hands and shooting everyone up that's got a sparkly stone in their hand.>"People do stupid stuff when they're scared of something," Cavefish nods here. "I know how stupid they can get, too. I don't need to see as far into the future as Miss Malal to know that."But that's not stupid. Freeing the world from the alien control seems perfectly reasonable for me and it's not like those alien bastards are benevolent messiahs or something.
>>31756375But the Incubators ARE benevolent messiahs. They're trying to stop entrophy.
>>31756375>Aliens that are trying to prolong the life of the entire universeMessiahs they may not be, but they're doing it for a pretty damn good reason.

>>31756451I dunno. Setting mentally unstable aliens up with recursive and potentially incredibly dangerous wishes and powers with no appropriate safeguards and checks & balances seems pretty wrong in an elaborate and dangerous experimentIncubators: no sense of right or wrong
>>31756393>>31756400>>31756451IIDF, pls go.
>>31756512Oh please. What's the worst that could happen? If any of them grow too powerful, we'll just seal them away or something.
>>31756541Well, you could potentially condemn yourself and potentially your entire race to an unspeakable b eternity of being fuffy footstools for a sadistic puppetmistress, though I admit that one is pretty n unlikely. But, y'know, that's what safeguards are for. Top protect against edge scenarios.
>>31756667Always a beautiful sight.
>>31756667>>31756595There is no precedent for this. I don't see why efforts to curb entropy should be delayed on such a preposterous theory.
>>31756753Preposterous>implying a mere several thousand lives hold even a semblance of meaning in the bigger picture of humanity, let alone the universe.They're very, VERY cheap price to pay for the continued existence of everything.
>>31756753The time limit on entropy is quite substantial. I would argue that we cannot afford NOT to delay if there is even a remote chance that these experiments will backfire. One meets to understand that historically every major power source has had substantial long term problems whose full ramifications has never fully been understood until after the fact.
>>31756150 >>31756163 >>31756164 >>31756165What does your last breakfast taste like? You glance over at Cavefish, who seems to be savoring every single bite she's chowing down, and you can't help but feel the slightest bit jealous, here. "It tastes like I'm going to die in less than four hours, Miss Malal," you murmur into your vox. "Now, what are those errands you wanted me to do?"You hear Malal chuckle again, and you marvel at how it actually sounds like she's gargling mouthwash. "That's what I like about you, Omegon. You've always been direct no matter who it is. Anyway, just a few items I want you to get done for me, nothing too major." She pauses here. "Cavefish is with you, right?"...Yeah. Yeah, she is."Good. Tell her that after she's finished eating her breakfast - and the breakfast of five other people - that she's to initiate Protocol 8 for the entire rank."Protocol 8? You blink from behind your faceplate. You're not familiar with that. What's Protocol 8 mean?Again that gargling sound. "You don't need to explain it to her, if that's what you're worried about. Just tell Cavefish what I told you. She knows what it's for."Ah. Right. Okay, you'll get on that right after this call."Second is I want you to check on Girl A. She's sitting this Walpurgisnacht out, but I want to make sure she's alright in her quarters, see if she's not too bored or anything."...Egh. You were dreading that. You don't really like to spend too much time with the Warmaster's pet unless it's absolutely necessary. Sure, Kyoko's assured you that she's alright, Malal's always said she's harmless, but...you couldn't help but feel this foreboding feeling whenever she was in your current vicinity. It's like she was a Culexus of her own to other Culexus - inciting not only irrational fear, but also hatred.You reply to the affirmative again. If Malal had noticed your reluctance then, she doesn't show it.[1/2]
>>31756868The time limit on entrophy is technically infinite. It all depends on how dark you want the universe to be.
>>31756905"Last one, and I want you to listen very carefully, Yuma." It's here that you actually do listen carefully - Malal never really calls you by your former name unless it's really important. "I want you to go and visit Silent Room Regalia. Make sure NO ONE is following you."Silent Room Regalia? That's...that's at the lowest level of the Officio building. It's also where the most dangerous threats to the Officio are usually kept. It's empty now, or rather, it should be...Wait. What the hell does she have stored in there, then? Or who?"Do you understand?" Malal repeats, and you nod here, unable to say anything. "Alright. Do you have any questions about any of those?"How do you respond?No questions. You'll be finding out anyway. ...You just hope Malal knows what she's making you do.Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?What's in Silent Room Regalia? Did you kidnap an enemy Officio's Warmaster, or something?
>>31756868>Incubators: no sense of right or wrongExcept no. We don't know exactly where the incubators came from in space and time. For all we know, their civilization could exist far into the future, on the brink of the heat death of the universe. We don't know how many other solutions they've tried. This could be their only option, and anime strongly hinted that it was.
>>31756922>Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?
>>31756922>Silent Room RegaliaDon't lose your way, Yuma-chan!
>>31756931Fuck, used the wrong quote. Meant to point out>The time limit on entropy is quite substantial.

>>31756922>[x]Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?>[x]What's in Silent Room Regalia? Did you kidnap an enemy Officio's Warmaster, or something?All the questions!
>>31756922 I love you, senpai!And thus, Yuma never heard from Malal ever again.
>>31756931>their civilization could exist far into the future, on the brink of the heat death of the universeI doubt it. We know about the inevitable Big Empty and our interstellar technology is nonexistent.
>>31756922[X]Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?We'll find out about Regalia soon enough, and seems too important to talk about for too long on the vox.
>>31756922>[x]Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?We'll find out the other one anyway and it might be a bad idea to ask.
>>31756922[X]No questions. You'll be finding out anyway. ...You just hope Malal knows what she's making you do.NO TIME FOR QUESTIONS, FOLLOW ORDERS
>Finally some plot advancement choice>current timePls don't decu.
>>31756922>Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?>What's in Silent Room Regalia? Did you kidnap an enemy Officio's Warmaster, or something?Dammit Malal.
>>31756922>[X]No questions. You'll be finding out anyway. ...You just hope Malal knows what she's making you do.If she was going to tell us, she would have.
>>31756922>Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?

>>31757032There's no stopping it anon.
>>31756905Wonder if Yumas strange hatred/fear towards Chiaki here means something? Something with the whole green hair warning maybe?
What if she's sending us into the silent room to KO us so we'll live through Walmart Night?>>31757032Especially since this is the first thread in like a week.
>Silent Room Regalia[loud German chanting intensifies]
>>31757007>We know about it too, that means they can't come from the future!Exactly what part of that conclusion seems logical to you?
>Silent Room RegaliaWe KLK now?Also, is Wendy "cheating" in >>31755232 or she's really that stacked?Also also, is Sayaka cake? I've spent quite a few nights wondering that.
>>31756922>[x]Why is Girl A sitting out Walpurgisnacht?>>31757111that's what I'm thinking, too.
>>31757104Culexus see the future and are all magical and such, it's just about Chiaki being who she is, the end of thousands of repetitions, destined to destroy the world with golden weapons etc.
>>31757157Well endowed.Thick thighs.That gap.
>>31757177But presumably they have to actively use their abilities to look into the future. Then again, Yuma was said to be extraordinarily powerfull so maybe.
>>31757091No one ever realized how much Malal foresaw.
Alright, pausing thread for now! I would like to take this time to apologize for the multiple postponements, this week just hasn't been really good for running. Tomorrow night will be a new thread though, for sure! Once again, thank you for your participation and patience, feedback is always great!We have two writeups tonight, so questions answered after them!
A clock ticked in the corner of Therese Witton's office, each tock mourning the passage of another dull moment. The Warmaster couldn't help but glance at it once every five minutes or so. She signed and stamped all manner of documents, humming quietly to whatever pop sensation sang through her computer's speakers. Therese paused, her brow furrowing as she tried to discern the purpose of yet another avatar of bureaucracy."Holly," she called out, holding the sheet up to the security camera in the corner of the ceiling, "what's this one for?"The lens whirred as it zoomed in, and a moment later the Vanus responded through the PA, "Materials acquisition."The Warmaster blinked, put the paper down, then looked back at the camera a moment later. "What does that mean?""Just sign it, Terry," Holly responded, sounding as exasperated as ever."No, I want to know what it's for!""God, fine. That one there? That's for ordering paper, office supplies, and a new photocopier for the Orange-Two offices.""What's wrong with the old photocopier?"Unknown to the Warmaster, Holly turned off the PA and let out a long, irritated groan. She clicked it on again a moment later to respond. "It's seven years old, it doesn't print every third sheet and the paper drawer keeps sticking."Therese looked at the form again, a puzzled look still glued to her face. "It says a new one is seven hundred dollars.""That's how much they cost, yes.""Why can't we-""Just sign the damn paper, Terry."Therese glared, then acquiesced, grumbling something along the lines of, "That's Warmaster to you," and "Shouldn't talk to your boss like that..."
>>31757197So she's like the perfect balance of PLOT and BACKSTORY, where people like Midori or Mami are all PLOT and Chiaki herself is pure BACKSTORY.
>>31757216>Tomorrow night will be a new thread though, for sure!Oh fuck. Thread 200 on Wednesday or Thursday?
>>31757157Wendy's Callidus skillset allows her to actually alternate her body (within certain limits), it's an ability unique to her somewhat related to her dream-walking.
Therese Witton had never been a creature of wit or patience. Even from her first days in the Seventeenth, some six years previous, she was recognized for exactly what she was - a wrecking ball in human form. One year after contracting, she took her place amongst the venerable ranks of the Valkyrie squad, then took Odette's place as Eversor Rank Leader two years after that, when the latter was inaugurated as Warmaster. Of the five veterans of the Valkyries, as they were known, Therese had always been the muscle. Odette was the tactician, Lotte was born for infiltration, and Miranda made the prettiest explosions, while Harriet had a strength umatched by most Culexus. Her assignments had always been kept simple; go somewhere, kill someone, maybe bring back a souvenir. A little part of Therese had always resented the fact, but in the end, she had always been too polite to make something of it. Somewhere, deep down it had felt as though she had been cheated. Throughout her life, she had always been perfectly average. Her looks, her grades, no hobby or sport had ever interested her. She had thought that would all change once she became a magical girl.'If I'm going to be a magical girl,' she had said, 'if I'm going to do this for the rest of my life... then, I wish to be good at it! Really good!'She had never wished to be the best. Therese had never been that greedy, and she had had enough sense to imagine the trouble such a talent would bring. Her only wish had been to have a talent she could be proud of, something to set her apart from her peers. And yet, there she had been. That tiny, silver-haired girl that seemed to one-up her every step of the way.And then, finally, at long last, she was gone. Therese was free and safe in the knowledge that she was, without question, the best of the Seventeenth.
For the nth time, Therese glanced up at the clock on her wall. With one hour left until the ceremony, the Warmaster gave a long and weary sigh before losing herself in paperwork once more.*** Odette wiped a crimson, formerly-white, gloved hand across her face, pushing her hair away from her one remaining eye, smearing her face with blood in the process. She bared her teeth in an expression caught somewhere between a manic grin and a vicious snarl. All eyes were on her. The make-shift arena that had once been the cafeteria was spattered with blood stains, along with larger, meatier pieces of a magical girl. An arm here, a leg there, a torso impaled against the ground. The Warmaster was breathing heavily, adrenaline still wildly pumping through her system."And don't any of you forget," she roared, yanking the crossbow bolt out of her eye socket, "that this is MY Officio! You want to challenge ME?! You'll end up just like poor little Argente he-"The far doors clattered open as a corpulent white form rolled in atop his roomba. To his right, Therese Witton kept pace, easily recognizable by her bear-skin hood and cloak, a chain coiling down her arm and ending at the haft of a mighty warhammer. To the incubator's left, a smaller girl with long, dark hair, wearing a sheep-skin aviator cap, complete with goggles, and a high-collared coat that obscured all but her burning eyes. She was Chloé Bouchard, the current Vindicare Rank Leader and one of the few people who could claim to hate the Warmaster more than Argente."I'm afraid, Odette," the incubator started, "that you are incorrect. This is not 'your' Officio, as you seem to believe. It is mine, just as it has always been. Now, would you kindly take a walk with me?""She picked a fight ME, damn it! I'm still Warmas-"
>>31757239It should be on Wednesday, otherwise all this buildup for Walpurgisnacht is pointless.
>>31757216>Tomorrow night will be a new thread though, for sure!-he said before he swole so hard he couldn't see.
"Incorrect once again, Eversor," Fubey interrupted in a rare show of assertion. "You WERE Warmaster, and I could not care less who started it. Now if you wouldn't mind, I would much prefer to continue this discourse in my office."Despite his unwavering calm tone, not a single person in the crowded cafeteria was blind to the fire in the incubator's eyes. For nearly everyone present, it was the first time they had ever seen such a thing. "Odette, please," Therese muttered, a pleading look on her face. "Don't make this any harder than it has to be.""I'm not goin' anywhere," Odette growled. "I EARNED this position.""Just as you 'ave earned dis demotion, calisse," the Vindicare interjected, her words filled with venom.The now former Warmaster spat a wad of saliva mixed with Tyler's blood at the French-Canadian, expertly hitting her enormous boots. Chloé's face contorted into a savage snarl as she stepped forward, a pair of M10 machine pistols materializing in her hands."MON TABERNACK J'VA TE DÉCALISSER LA YEULE, CALICE!""Come at me, you little shit!" Odette roared back. "You wanna end up like Argente?!"The crack of thunder resounded through the cafeteria. Every eye suddenly shifted to Therese. Her hammer rested in a smoking crater on the floor, sparks of electric dancing up and down its chain.
>>31757216DECUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUI love you~I didn't get a chance to thank you for the last thread on my birthday so I'm doing it now.
"Odette, you make one wrong move and the only person ending up like Tyler will be you," the Rank Leader warned. "You've always been the smart one. You know you can't take us both.""Are you actually going to take HER," Odette pointed a bloody spear at the Vindicare, "side in this?!""The only side I'm taking is the Officio's.""Unbelievable," the former Warmaster muttered. "Un-FUCKING-believable. After all I've done for you, this is the thanks I-"With a flick of the wrist, a second thunderclap deafened the crowd as Therese's hammer soared an inch past Odette's head, decorating the far wall with a second crater."Your last warning," Therese murmured. The air had begun to smell distinctly of ozone.Odette scanned the crowd with her one remaining eye. After a silent moment, she bent down to pick up her greatcoat. She dusted it off, slowly and thoroughly, then tossed it at Therese."Let's get this over with."*** Nearly one hundred magical girls filled the Seventeenth's auditorium. In the front row, the entirety of the Valkyries waited patiently and chattered amongst themselves. Behind them, each and every seat in the room was taken up by as many Eversors as could be assembled with such short notice. Therese stood at a podium at the left end of the stage, quietly sorting through her notes. From her vantage point, she could pick out more than a few familiar faces in the crowd. Megan Laurie and Mona Bernard had found seats in the far back rows, while Odette leaned against a wall near the entrance. The silver-haired Eversor gave her successor a polite nod when she noticed the Warmaster's eye upon her. Therese returned it with a somewhat forced smile before clearing her throat to call for silence.
"Ah, good afternoon, ladies," she started. "I apologize for the short notice, but we've had something of a busy week, as many of you have no doubt heard. I would like to offer my condolences to the entirety of the Valkyrie squad for the loss of Frieda Norton. She was a fine Callidus whom I had had the pleasure of working with on many an occasion. For those of you who were unable to attend her funeral, there is a book of condolences in the main lobby, if you wish to sign it.""Moving on, I would like to ask Wing Captain Fredrica Volk to join me on stage."A round of applause - and no shortage of wolf whistles - echoed through the auditorium as the Wing Captain made her way forward from backstage, stepping into the spotlight. The boyish Eversor gave a humble smile as she waved sheepishly at the crowd."Fredrica Volk," Therese said, "in one and a half years of service, you have distinguished yourself time and again amongst your peers. Within our most esteemed squad, the Valkyries, you have proven yourself to be the very best of our best. For this reason, it is my privilege, as Warmaster of the Seventeenth, to grant you the title of Eversor Rank Leader."A second round of applause and cheering erupted from the crowd, far louder than the first. The newly titled Rank Leader bowed as several flowers - along with a pair of panties - landed on the stage around her. As the cheers began to die out, the Warmaster motioned for silence once more.
>>31757287Ah crap. figma Chiaki might not be ready on thread 200.
"Fredrica Volk," Therese started again, this time in a far more friendly, casual tone, "as you are no doubt aware, you are following in some big footsteps. Both myself and our venerable Odette Brighton were once Wing Captains of the Valkyries, as well as Rank Leaders of the Eversors. Regardless of whether or not you follow us, I trust you to uphold the values and beliefs of our Officio. You're a good kid, Freddy. Make us proud."Neither the Warmaster, nor Fredrica would have thought it possible, but the third bout of cheering managed to put the first two to shame. Therese bowed her head and stepped to the side, relinquishing to podium to the new Rank Leader, who was already red-faced and teary-eyed."Oh wow," Fredrica muttered, fumbling with a folded up piece of paper. "I, um, well, this got kind of sprung on me, so I didn't really have time to come up with a big fancy speech or anything. I would, uh, first like to thank my sister, Gerty, who's always been there to support me and keep me going every step of the way."The blonde Vindicare stood up from the front row and performed a few short curtsies before sitting down."Of course, this wouldn't have been possible with our Warmaster, too. I'll try not to let you down, Terry! Um, who else," the boyish magical girl glanced down at her scrunched up notes. "Oh! I can't forget Odette, who I thought I saw around here... There you are! You've always been a huge role model for me, and I'll never forget everything you've taught me..."***
>>31757357Doing it well is more important than doing it on time, in this case. the thought counts for a lot.
Three of the four Rank Leaders of the Seventeenth stood around the incubator's office, the only absentee appearing on a screen behind the incubator's desk. Lotte Laufson, Rank Leader of the Callidus, paced around the room like a caged animal, shaking her head and biting her lip to contain her anger. Therese chose to sit, holding her head in her hands. The Vindicare Rank Leader leaned against a bookshelf to one side of the room, looking almost disgusted at the others. The hooded Culexus on the screen said nothing and expressed nothing, as she had from the moment she was contacted."This is bullshit," the Callidus muttered, never stopping, nor looking at the incubator atop his desk.Fubey looked at her, his steel-eyed stare somehow holding weight, despite the incubator's constant lack of facial expression. "Your opinion has been noted, Miss Laufson.""You can't just... just DO this!""I can and I have. This topic is not up for debate."Lotte spun on her heel, wringing a black leather bullwhip in her hands. "This isn't right, damn it!""Interesting choice of words for a murderer," the Vindicare interjected. The Callidus' lip twitched into a snarl, but she was cut off before she could say a word."Regardless, Charlotte speaks the truth," the Culexus spoke up at last, her voice slow and raspy. "Odette needs help - psychiatric help - not punishment. There is no questioning the fact that she is the strongest among us. I can not help but find it rather suspect that an incubator would simply throw away such an asset.""Which is why I have chosen to simply demote her, rather than have her terminated, Miss Blinde. I will repeat, this is not a debate.""You're really not going to change your mind?" Lotte asked, putting the last of her remaining hope into the question. "This isn't some idiotic lesson you're teaching us?""I believe I have made myself perfectly clear, Miss Laufson.""Then I'm done with this shit show, too."
"What?" Therese cried out, lifting staring her bloodshot eyes staring wide at the Callidus."Harry's right, Odette needs support. Maybe the rest of you don't care about her, but I still do and I won't be a part of this. You three can go to hell.""Lotte-"By the time Therese had pushed herself out of her seat, the door had already slammed behind the Callidus. The Eversor sat back down, her weeping renewed.Chloé snickered behind her high collar. "'Support', eh? Is dat what de kids are call it dese days?""Shut up, Chloe," Therese muttered, faint sparks crackling in her hair."And you, Miss Blinde?" Fubey asked, turning to the LCD behind himself. A sharp burst of static cut through the speakers as the Culexus' suit forced another breath into her lungs. "You know full well that I can not resign, incubator. But, rest assured that I would follow Charlotte, were I able. This Officio has become a farce. As for you, Therese," Harriet's bright, yellow eye shifted every so slightly beneath her cracked helmet, "I expected better of you. Regrettably, I am unable say the same for Miss Bouchard. Good day to you all."The screen went black as soon as the last words left her mouth. Fubey was silent for a moment, still staring at his reflection in the black monitor. "You are both dismissed," he said with as much anguish as an incubator could be expected to muster.Therese stood up, while the Vindicare made for the door. "Fubey," she murmurred, reaching out a shaky hand to stroke his fur.With uncharacteristic speed, he turned his head and his eyes met hers, freezing her hand in place. "I apologize, Miss Witton," he said, "it seems I have made myself unclear. I wish to be left alone for the time being, so that I may yet again savour the feeling of losing some of my best magical girls, as well as the loyalty of many others. We will speak again tomorrow morning.""But-""You. Are. Dismissed."***
Just about every Eversor in the room had lined up to shake Fredrica's hand as they filed out of the auditorium. Therese leaned against a wall behind the new Rank Leader, sipping at a water bottle and smiling to herself. She had made one of the greatest changes to tradition in the Officio's history, and she hadn't heard a single complaint. Somehow, it validated her. She basked in the feeling, giggling to herself every now and again, until one of the girls broke from the line."Afternoon, Terry," Odette laughed, stuffing her hands in her pockets as she took a spot beside the Warmaster. "Nice work out there.""Ah, thanks!" Therese said, blushing and giggling. "I'll admit, I had to get Holly to write the speech for me. I'm not so good at public speaking, aheh...""That so?" Odette said, unconsciously gripping the crumbled piece of paper in her pocket. "Well, it looks like everyone liked it.""Yup! I gotta say, I didn't think you'd make it. Not, uh, not that I'm not glad you came.""I was just heading back after lunch and Holly called me about it. Figured I oughta swing by. Been a long time since I got to see one of these."The Warmaster nodded. "Chloe's, wasn't it?""Yeah. And the one before that was when you, Mimi, and me all got promoted at the same time."Therese nodded, getting lost in the memory for a moment. Shaking herself out of it, she said, "Oh, um, sorry for not coming to see you yesterday. I had things. Um, Warmastery things. I mean, no, um-"The smaller girl raised a hand to calm the stammering Warmaster. "Relax, I understand. Don't forget, I used to do all that stuff, too.""Ah," Therese murmurred, chuckling softly, "yeah, sorry. Even when I was Rank Leader, it was nothing compared to this. I don't know how you managed it for three years.""With great strain on my mental health, if you'll recall."The Warmaster nodded again, smiling. "I would have thought you'd take today off. You really should be resting right now."
"Lotte said the same thing," Odette said, giving a short snort of laughter. "I figure I'll get this assignment over as fast as possible, then take a week or two off and visit all my old friends.""Ah. So... you and Lotte are official now, huh?""Aheh," Odette gave a sheepish grin and scratched at the back of her head, "yeah... I guess you heard about that, huh?""I would think that just about everyone in the Officio has by now," Therese said. There was something in her smile that Odette couldn't quite place. It seemed hollow, yet not at the same time."Still don't like her, huh?""I," the Warmaster paused, trying to put her thoughts into words, "I don't know... It's complicated."Odette murmurred a quiet acknowledgement. "You two used to be pretty good friends, back in the day.""Times change, Odette," Therese replied, bringing the water bottle up to her lips. "Times change."The shorter girl nodded. "Listen, before we get all weird and nostalgic, there's something I really have to say."Therese cocked an eyebrow as she took a drink."Not exactly the kind of mood I was hoping for, but," Odette took a deep breath to steady herself, trying to remember the proper wordings, "I formally request that I be considered for the position of Equerry of the Seventeenth."Therese blinked, then stared at her former mentor with wide eyes as, for a reason she couldn't quite place, the memories of that fateful day three months ago suddenly came flooding back.-------For more Prose Megucas or maybe some Strike Witches Crimson, check out my pastebin here: http://pastebin.com/u/GrizzlyniisanQuestions, comments, criticisms, etc welcome as always!
"Why climb the building?"On a wall facing the ocean, I have a great view of the ground. Judging by past experience, I could just barely break my legs from this height if I fell. Maybe if I hit those rocks over there just right..."Less likely to bump into people who can relay where we went to Cap'n. You comfy back there, hon?"It's not comfortable back here. I'm balled up in a net made of spiderwebs whose origin I am trying very hard not to think about. My left arm's starting to fall asleep."Yeah," I lie.Whatever this Suzi person has planned, I doubt her intentions are pure."Ihihihi, good, good~."The spray of the ocean is at my back, and I can't stop looking down. My clothes are still wet and this proximity to the sea isn't helping things at all."Couldn't I hide in your room?"This thing that's holding me keeps rocking back and forth in the wind and it's making my stomach churn."My my my, you're being awfully forward, Elly~. I don't think you'd like it in there, though."Fuck you and your innuendos. You're making me sick, you freak."Getting dizzy..."Actually, I really am getting pretty nause-"Upsy-daisy!"As soon as I'm hauled onto solid ground, I fall to my hands and knees while my stomach tries to expel its contents through my mouth. Nothing comes out, though. Then I fall on my face because my knees won't support me anymore and I'm dry heaving like a fish trying to breathe. Suzi is clicking her tongue at me like it's my fault."Mmm, hang on, lemme get that for ya'," is all she says before she's got her hands on me again. I wanna tell her to get the fuck off but the queasiness from earlier hasn't worn off, and my stomach hurts like hell. There's some clicking noises as my body feels lighter and lighter. I think... Yeah, I can pull myself up. Suzi gives me water again, but it hurts to drink on an empty stomach. I bet she was counting on that. Sadist cunt.[1/8]
I didn't notice it before, but over the smell of salt, there's a flower fragrance in the air. It's different from what Suzi's wearing, whatever it is. I look around me and see blobs of red and green in rectangular patterns, arranged around a single table in the center. Roses, judging by the scent, which would make this somebody's garden.I wouldn't have thought there'd be something like this up here. Not here, not back at the Eighth... Come to think of it, are all magical girls insane?Suzi's marching towards it, dragging me along and saying things like, "Now you just sit at that table over there and-- Oh dear.""Nnnh?" I still don't feel right after losing my lunch. Not that I want to answer her or anything, anyway."That's Milly," she whispers while pointing at something; her breath tickling my ear freaks me the fuck out. "Though you should call her Miss Schulz or she'll throw a fit~. I'd figured she'd have gone inside by now."If I squint a little, I can see a figure sitting at the table. Mostly wearing white, and brown hair. She's looking right at us. And after getting up closer, I can tell that she's frowning."She's a sheltered girl, so just... Be quiet and she won't be a bother."Oh. Well that's easy. And that assumes this isn't some sort of setup to crush my spirits. I'm wise to your games, you bitch.Suzi pretty much drops me on the chair in front of this... scary looking girl. She's glaring at me so intensely I can't bring myself to look at her. I don't want anything to do with any of this.[2/8]
"Miss Berry. Why have you deposited this ragamuffin at my table during my afternoon tea?" She demands, indicating the spread of fancy cookware - I think it's ivory? Is that even legal? - and a plate of what look like cookies.Suzi's rocking on her feet like a little kid and grinning again. "Apologies, my cute little Miss Millyyy, bu-"'Milly' cuts her off tersely, "Please don't call me that."Suzi's grinning bigger now. "-but this here girl needs a place to hide from the whimsy of Cap'n Crunch."Fancy girl has thoughtful look on her face all of a sudden. She hasn't stopped drinking her tea, but she's staring at me with an... uncomfortable look of pity.Fancy girl sets down the cup. "I'll allow her to stay," she replies, her voice no longer as stern. It still has a bit of edge to it when she adds, "but if she acts like some callous ruffian I will formally introduce her to the ground at terminal velocity."Ah, there's the familiar threat of consequences for not doing something arbitrary. Sounds awful tempting, though."Thank ya' kindly, Miss Schulz. Now if you'll excuse me, I was gonna visit my old foster home." Suzi's leaning up in my face now and leering at me and I don't like iiiiiiiit. "Be good now, Elly."I just nod. Sure, sure, just go awaaaaay.Creepy spider woman finally pulls away and waves goodbye with a cheeky grin as she leaves. By jumping off the goddamn roof with a loud "Yahoo!"I'm not even surprised anymore. All I know is I haven't had food in a couple days and I want some of whatever this person is having because it looks like something sweet.[3/8]
"My apologies, would you like some?" she perks up. "You look famished."I didn't even realize I was staring. Dimly, I nod."Speak up, now."I thought I was told to be quiet. Is this some kind of test?"Yes," I rasp. "'Yes, please'."I don't care what it takes, right now I want that sugar."Yes, please.""'Yes, please, -Miss Schulz-.'"Oh, fuck you. Fuck you, you prissy little bitch."Yes, please, Miss Schulz.""Very good." She seems appeased for the mome-"Sit up straight, now," she snaps at me as I try to put one of the confections in my mouth, "and don't just eat it, you must dip it first. Really, being on the brink of starvation is no reason to act like some savage." But that's exactly the time for manners to start breaking down! Can you just get to the physical torture already so I don't have to deal with this psychological crap?Mechanically, I follow her instructions. Adjust my posture, dip the cookie-thing in the tea, then quickly eat it before she can change her mind. It's kinda buttery, and it practically melts in my mouth. I don't know squat about tea, but after taking a sip (pinkie out, just to be safe), I find it to be sweet-tasting as well. This is actually pretty tasty, much better than cup ramen and the cheap junk I usually buy."There, isn't that much better?" Miss Schulz asks sweetly. "You're looking more like a real lady already." Nnnng, stop it, you lying liar. You're making my face burn red.I have to agree about things being better, though. Compared to my normal routine, this is... Nice. The air isn't stale, my outfit's dried out in the breeze, and I don't have to do anything other than sit up here for a while. Not like I could go anywhere; my body still throbs dully, reminding me that it's utterly exhausted. Well, no matter. I could watch the birds, maybe. It might get boring, but for now I guess this is nice.Yeah, this is-[4/8]
"Eeeeek!!"I nearly drop my cup when she shrieks. "Are you okay, Miss Schulz?" I ask. She's staring at a spot on her dress that looks like... Like a bird pooped on it. The ones that passed over a short while ago. I don't see any napkins, so I undo my cravat - usually I don't even remember that's what it's called - and offer it up to her. "Here, you can use this to-""No," Miss Schulz murmurs, her voice shaking. "No need, I'll be fine in a moment, please excuse me."Miss Schulz stands up and faces away from me after pushing in her chair. As I try to rearrange my cravat - how did this thing work again? - she pulls reaches into her neckline and pulls out her soul gem. It's a very pearly white, but I can't make out the finer details before strands of silk erupt from the ground and wrap around her. From her toes up past her head, she is cocooned in the stuff, all in the span of a couple seconds.So this is her magical girl transformation? The costume change -would- get rid of the stain, but isn't this excessive?Something spiny punches through the shell from the inside out, some kind of a gold-colored spine. Then another on the opposite side. And then the whole thing is shredded in half as Miss Schulz tears it apart with a yell. A large pair of blue butterfly wings spread out from her back, and the spines turn out to belong to a set of maces with gold gilding around them. She kind of does look like a butterfly. It's rather pret-[5/8]
>>31757557"You shit-flinging turd wings!"...Huh? Did Miss Schulz really just-"I'm gonna fucking kill every last one of you assholes!"Is that really her voice? It sounds much more... Accented. And gruff. And... angry.Miss Schulz, or the person that was Miss Schulz, dashes to the edge of the rooftop and screams, "Better run you sniveling little twats!" before jumping into the air. The wings on her back flap just those of a butterfly, and the whole thing would look very graceful, but-Butterflies don't cuss like that."Get back here you sniggering fuckwads!"Butterflies don't chase down birds with a killing intent."Burn in Hell, you smegma-sucking wankers!"Butterflies don't vaporize birds with jagged bolts of lightning."Eat this!"Butterflies don't club birds with spiked maces in a spectacular explosion of gore.One of them manages to actually flap its way down to a spot a few feet to my right. I can't really bring myself to look at it, but I think it was missing part of one of its wings. And streaking out of the sky is the berserker, aiming a kick at the defenseless creature. I shut my eyes tightly before it happens.There's a loud crunching sound, and something splatters against my sleeve. I don't want to look, though. I don't want to see any of it."What, does it hurt?"No, no, focus on something nice. Focus on, uh... Focus on the teapot. Open your eyes and look at it and help yourself to some more tea before you're mashed into paste. I will myself not to indulge my curiosity in what the sadistic woman is doing to the remains of the unfortunate bird. Instead, I try to calm the fuck down and have some fucking tea and salvage my fucking day because I was actually enjoying myself for once.There's a skull face on the teapot.[6/8]
>>31757216Decu! I don't know if this is the right time to ask questions but I'm confused!If this is a flashback how come Yuma has a MMxMM poster? Shouldn't Midori not know that Chiaki exists and therefore has no one to base Murder Mayumi on? Also I thought it wasn't popular at this time.
There's a skull face on the teapot.There's a skull face on the teapot.There's a fucking skull face on the teapot. And on the cups. And the plates kinda look pretty fucking bony, too. THE FUCKING TABLE AND CHAIR LEGS ARE MADE FROM ACTUAL LEGS. HOW DID I NOT NOTICE THIS?"That'll teach you, you vultures!" spits the madwoman before she walks back into my field of vision. The maces are gone, but she's covered in... I want to say I lost my appetite, but I can't stop eating."Terribly sorry you had to see that. I feel like I've lost my appetite, what about you?"Ha... They're all batshit crazy. Every last one. I shouldn't have let my guard down. I shouldn't have eaten these addicting things. If this wasn't all so goddamn awful I'd be laughing."...Are you quite alright?""Fine!" I scream at psycho twat, spitting up crumbs as I talk, "Absolutely fine! No problems at-GODFUCKINGDAMMIT!"SHE FUCKING KICKED ME IN THE FUCKING SHIN WITH THOSE FUCKING HEELS AND IT FUCKING HURTS HOLY SHIT HOLY FUCKING SHIT GODDAMMIT IT FUCKING HURTS FUCK I ALMOST CHOKED THERE YOU CUNT!"Rude! That's no way to behave!" SHUT UP!"Consider this a small mercy, next time I may just kill you." JUST DO IT ALREADY YOU BITCH! GOD!But she doesn't. Instead, fancy pants butcher girl takes all her stuff, but I grab every last goddamn cookie thing from her plate and clutch onto them like an addict, literally stuffing them into my mouth. She scoffs before putting her macabre collection into her inventory. "Bloody disgusting foreigners..." she calls callously before finally, FINALLY GOING AWAY.[7/8]
>>31757589Girl A was active at the time - this was before she started an inter-offcio war.
Fucking hurts. Eating this fucking stuff off a fucking corpse garnished with fucking murder sauce and everything fucking hurts. And I have to stay up here or Fuckface is going to make things worse. I drop the rest of the cookies and let them break into crumbs on the ground. None of this is enjoyable anymore, and I'm getting cold and it's making my fucking shin hurt worse and I can't stop myself from screaming "GODDAMMIT WHY THE FUCK IS EVERYBODY SO FUCKING INSANE I CAN'T FUCKING TAKE THIS!"In spite of literally fucking everything hurting, I can stand. Which means I can flip this fucking table. "FUCK YOUR TABLE!" And grab the chair I was using and bash the table with it, both of which prove really fucking unfairly hard to break. "FUCK YOUR CHAIRS!"Well fuck, the fucking roses aren't immune to getting hit with a chair, so "FUCK YOUR FLOWERS!" I scream as I crush roses with the macabre stool.And then I lose my fucking grip on the stupid fucking chair and it flies out of my reach and I'm just so fucking tired that I can't fucking stand anymore. I fall onto the ground and weakly punctuate my words by pounding the rooftop with my fist. "FUCK THE SIXTH! FUCK THE EIGHTH! FUCK THE INCUBATORS! FUCK MAGICAL GIRLS!"I'm taking heavy gulps of air just so I can scream my throat raw, but fuck it, I want the world to know : "FUCK ALL OF THIS!"...What did Suzi say?That she was a 'sheltered girl'?Sheltered girl... Was it a bomb shelter?Haha... ha... I want to fucking cry and I can't even do that. Fuck me.[8/8]---And that's the end of that. Hope you all enjoyed it!
>>31757589>Shouldn't Midori not know that Chiaki exists and therefore has no one to base Murder Mayumi on?Midori met Girl A while working at the ramen shop. Malal took her there occasionally.>Also I thought it wasn't popular at this time.This is after MAXIMUM CHRISTMAS. Yuma has always been a fangirl.
>>31757608Huh I didn't know that Midori knew about Girl A. I just thought she knew Chiaki and started MMxMM after meeting her.
>>31757619>"FUCK YOUR FLOWERS!"Oh damn.
>>31757357You can probably make it in time for thread 201! But besides that, please don't rush it, we're all excited to see what you come up with!>>31757322Hahaha, no problem! Belated happy birthday!>>31757239I hope so! I'll be trying my best to get it on Wednesday.>>31757589This is answered by >>31757608>>31757627Thanks for the assist!

>>31757599>>31757619>THE FUCKING TABLE AND CHAIR LEGS ARE MADE FROM ACTUAL LEGS. HOW DID I NOT NOTICE THIS?>"FUCK YOUR TABLE!"

>>31757434Nice write-up, and reasonably lengthy too!
>>31757675>But besides that, please don't rush it, we're all excited to see what you come up with!Well, hope I don't disappoint you guys too much
Wouldn't Kharn have already named her Murderface at this point?>>31757608You're referring to the incident with the Third and Ahriman, right? But this must be after that, because Malal was around for that, and now she's about to "die."
>Yuma reading MMxMMIsn't she, like, too young to walk into Toranoana and just buy 18+ material?Same with Chiaki, when she actually did that.
>>31757746She has, but among the Culexus she's called Girl A.Also, yes, this thread is after that.
Is there any easily accessible catalog of all the write-ups?
>>31757768Female Jap teenagers stop showing signs of aging after hitting 16+ years old.Or so they say
>>31757675Can you answer the questions in >>31757157, please?
>>31757768They probably get some kind of special ID when they enlist. How else Murderface drink booze like a fish?
>>31757822Charles doesn't give a fuck?
>>31757796Neither Chiaki nor Yuma appear older than 16. Yuma specially.And no store clerk, not even Yuri <3, will just accept that they're "reading it for the story"
>>31757768Chiaki is actually around 18 during present-day MGNQ. She's grown up a bit.Yuma on the other hand has Cavefish buy it for her! >>31757794Yes! The Magical Girl Noir Quest wiki has a page dedicated for writeups. I think the ebook also catalogues them!
>>31757794http://wiki.magicalgirlnoir.com/index.php/Write-upsThe ebook also has its own separate catalogue, yes.
>>31757157Regalia is their code name for the most powerfully-set Silent Room in the Headquarters.>>31757157She is that stacked! Just like here! >>31757197
>>31757693Then I'm doing things correctly!>>31757705That's how they roll down there; they make trophies out of their kills, or otherwise put them to use in other ways, such as furniture, building materials, and even stranger things. Except for Suzi. She steals the underwear from her kills, if applicable, and is currently assembling a throne of bras.
Why are sweaters such miracles of the universe?It even compliments flat chests.
>>31757835How long have you been planning this Walpurgisnacht flashback?What would happen If we moved too slowly with that Midori story?
>>31757912>a throne of brasIt would be much more useful than the throne of skulls, that's for sure.
>>31757912an underwear hammock, that seems like it would fit her.
>>31758031Very cozy.>>31758033I like this idea.
Decu's heading off to moon land, so I'll be taking over, as usual.>>31757989It's been planned for a while, this just seemed like a timely occasion to do it.
>>31758116Will you ever let Wendy win in the write-ups?
>>31758207Well, she won pretty decisively against that girl tied to an altar.
>>31758247that was a pretty mean thing to do.
>>31757912I hope she only uses comfy bras, there are a lot that are unfortunately very uncomfortable.
>>31757619I enjoy seeing the poor girl suffer more than I should. Probably.
Oh hey, I only slept through the entire thread. Again.Threadly reminder that the updated Ebook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDblink to the Fanart gallery: http://wiki.magicalgirlnoir.com/index.php/FanartEbooks will be updated at some point today.
Before this thread drops out, I'd like to extend thanks to Deculture for letting me write and a couple suggestions, to Wendy Cooldown for letting me bounce ideas off of her, no matter how silly, and to Sanguis for accent consulting.
