You were once a magical girl, but have now ended up having to hunt down your former comrades. As a member of the Magical Girl Hunter Bureau, it is your job to defend humanity from the Magical Menace!You had recently just barely survived what amounted to a suicide mission to destroy the last bastion of Magical Girl resistance on Earth. You don't actually remember much though, aside from lots of stuff blowing up. Oh yeah, and Carol eating your left arm.Then again, you kinda ordered her to, so it was technically more your fault than hers.You groan as piercing white light sears your retinas. Blinking rapidly, you find yourself in the all too familiar sight of lying in a hospital bed, staring up at the white ceiling."Rise and shine, Alice." You hear a familiar, deadpan voice greet you."How long was I out?" You ask Egan."About sixteen hours." Egan says. "I guess that's what happens when you do something that costs you and arm and leg.""Please, Egan, I don't have time for puns." You groan."Really? Because you're just handing me material here."It was a rare time for Egan to go into pun mode. Usually when she felt you were doing something really stupid. Well, as irritating as it was, at least you knew it was a way of showing you she cared, in a roundabout way.Still made you want to throttle her, though.>Ask what happened.>Ask about your arm.>Other
>>31766603>Ask what happened.
>>31766603How's Carol, we did give up our left arm for her.
>>31766603>>Ask what happened.>Give her the finger
>>31766603>Ask what happened.Cuss Loki out while we're at it. Fucking bastard mutant cat.
>>31766603>>Ask what happened.How much did we screw up this time.
>>31766603>Ask what happened.>Is the council disappointed I'm still alive?
>>31766603>>Ask what happened.
>>31766603>Ask what happened.Third best story of the weekend
>>31766603>Ask about your arm.After what happened last thread, I just hope that they aren't suffering from nightmares. Alice dreaming that she gets slowly consumed by Carol; while Carol is dreaming of being unable to satisfy her hunger, leading her to devour all of those that she cares for.
>>31766865May I ask the other two?
>>31766692Maybe she received some of our memories. Is Alice the first person she ate?
>>31766896Cyberidols is the best for me.Gundam Build Fighters is a close second.
>>31766888For as broken as Carol is it would not surprise me if she makes us a new one.
>>31766888Which is why all future missions, everyone carries high density nutrient packs for Carol so we don't have to feed her rookies. On the plus side, have a new way to torture rookies
We should also ask Carol what we taste like. (Cherries, oranges, etc.?)
>>31766603>Ask what happened.we should be able to look at what's left of out arm by now.
>>31767046We taste like mom
>>31767046We really shouldn't ask such things... She didn't seem too thrilled to eat our arm first place.
>>31767058Hopefully we get a good selection of badass cyberarms
>>31767046Humans taste like pork.
>>31767096We should have a talk and make sure she is emotionally fine. Humor is a good way of processing terrible things
>>31767122I thought like veal?
Or maybe "Old Alice" is living inside Carol's mind.
>>31767207That's a good point, we don't know how she processes personality transfers
>>31767250Does she even do that. I really don't recall any Merc's post saying such.
>>31767102i would rather have a cloned up flesh and blood arm instead. besides, if they can make cyber arms, they can make powered armor and that is much better.>>31767122how would you know that?
Sorry guys for the delays. Gotta clear some stuff up. Should be done soon, though!
>>31767378Different anon, but apparently a Frenchman in the 19th century ate a recently deceased corpse and recorded it's texture, flavor, etc.
>>31767500And also there are reports from African cannibals, who frequently compared it to pork.
>>31767500>>31767529speaking of cannibals.....http://www.movieweb.com/movie/the-green-inferno/trailer
>>31766603"What happened?" You ask. "I mean, not just after, but did the Council really want me dead that much?""Ummm, well.... that's probably something you'd want to ask Bruttenholm." Egan frowns. "But what I do know was that they didn't have extraction prepared for you because they thought it would be too dangerous to send in an extraction team. At least, that's what their reasoning was.""Bullshit." You spit."Anyways, it's still too early to tell, but it looks like we won." Egan smiles. "Global M-Particle concentration is dropping rapidly, and all of the Magical Girls we have in captivity got depowered. I think we really did get them all.""It's confirmed?" You blink."Well, during the bombardment, the ODIN strikes triggered a volcanic eruption shortly after you were evacuated, which is of course making cleanup operations a bit difficult. However, pretty much anything that wasn't on the coast is pretty much done for.""Well, that's great and all, but it's not over yet." You sigh."It's not?" Egan raises an eyebrow."Has everybody but me forgotten about the Invaders?" You scowl. "One of these days, they're not going to conveniently send their monsters in one by one.""Well, why are you saying this now?"(cont)
>>31767839"Because things are starting to add up." You sigh. "Why were the Companions in such a hurry to contact their superiors? Why would they risk everything to concentrated themselves in one single location?""They weren't calling for reinforcements, they were requesting an evacuation." Egan's eyes widen a bit."Exactly." You nod. "So, whatever is coming our way, is nasty enough to make the Companions scurry for their little lives.""That would seem to be the case." Loki purrs as he snuggles up on your pillow. You ignore him and keep your focus on Egan. "That's some very serious stuff." Egan frowns. "And all I thought I would have to do was help you out with your arm.""What about my arm? You Mary hasn't-" You tilt your head to the left and just see a bandaged stump. "GAAAAAH!""Yeah, when I said all the MGs in captivity got depowered, that was including Mary." Egan sighs. I DO have some alternatives, though.">Summon Brutthenholm.>Ask about your arm.>Other
>>31767868>Ask about your arm.
>>31767868>Ask about your arm.First thing's first. I'm curious as to see what Egan has planned.
>>31767868>Summon Brutthenholm.Work first. We don't need an arm to talk.
>>31767868>>Ask about your arm.
>>31767868>Summon Brutthenholm.Situation now, arm later
>>31767868>>Other"Egan, I'm sorry."
>>31767868Ask about Carol, you know, the one we have up our arm for?
>>31767973This. How is Carol?
>>31767868>Summon Brutthenholm.We need to tell him what we know, time is of the essance
>>31767868>Summon Brutthenholm.As fun shopping for a new arm would be... We need to get someone higher up in command to start thinking about Invaders...
>>31767868>Ask about your arm.Cooking for Carol will be a BITCH with only one arm.
>>31767868>>Summon Brutthenholm.All work and no play makes Alice something something...Still needs to be done.
>>31768077We never cooked for her before other then shark but that was over a grill.Also we have more important shit to talk about then our arm.Invaders? Remember?
>>31768077Putting on clothes will be more difficult than firing weapons
>>31767868>Ask about your arm.come on stem cell 3d printing tech....
>>31768105You're talking to a bunch of brick walls, sadly.
>>31768181Nah, cyberarm with targeting assist.
>>31768181Or we graft Carol's donated cells to us.
>>31768181Robot arm superior
>>31768254I wounder if we can get a symbiote arm. Then we can reconfigure it to any weapon.
>>31768222I understand daughteru love, I like it too but seriously I thought that is the reason Cyberidol quest is for.We have information that is vital but we want an arm which can be done afterwards
>>31767868"What kind of alternatives?" You ask suspiciously."Fortunately for you, medical science has progressed rather significantly in the past few decades." Egan says, showing you some pictures. "Your first alternative is an artificial prosthetic, which uses the latest in nerve feedback technology. It will be hardier and stronger than a regular arm, but obviously, it would ultimately be a prosthetic, not a true replacement.""Uh huh." You frown."Your other option is a bit more... experimental." Egan sighs. "Carol felt really guilty about having to eat your arm to stay alive, so after she collected more biomass, she used the DNA she acquired from you to grow a new arm, using her own body as the incubator."That was... touching and more than a little disgusting at the same time."We can attach the new arm to you, no problem, but ultimately, even if it's a perfect clone of your old arm, it will still have trace amounts of Invader DNA in it. We're... not sure how your body will react to it, or what the effects will be.""Well, we're just full of optimism today." You roll your eyes."Or you can just stay with one arm and I keep making arm and hand puns at your expense until the day you die." Egan continues.Goddamnit.>Take the mechanical arm.>Take the bio arm.>Other
>>31768371>Take the bio arm.
>>31768371>>Take the bio arm.Made with Daughteru love.No contest
>>31768371>Take the bio arm.She was an incubator, it would be a waste if we didn't use it.
>>31768371Speaking of Carol, how is she doing?
>>31768371>OtherStay with one arm out of spite
>>31768371>>Take the bio arm.
>>31768371>Take the bio arm.The first magical girl/human/invader hybrid.
>>31768371>>Take the bio arm.Surgery can wait till after we talk with Brutthenholm.
Rolled 2>>31768371Bio Arm all the way.
>>31768464This. Talk to Brutthenholm now that the arm is sorted out.
>>31768371>OtherTalk to Bruttenholm now, let Egan take some of our tissue samples to experiment with the bio arm to see if there are any strange issues later.
>>31768371>Take the bio arm.Bio arm with invader DNA and unknown side effects?! How can I refuse!
>>31768371>>31768473This as well.If we're being experimented on, we need to tell him before going under
>>31768546I swear to god we will make it fire bio-plasma somehow
>>31768688Or it will eat us from the inside and we turn into an invader, kind of like vampires or the zombie virus.Some part of me wants that ending in which Mirai, Kanako, and Leo put her down
>>31768830Alice would make a great invader.
>>31768830Or the invader arm becomes a plot point where humanity starts augmentation themselves and becomes something greater to defeat the invaders, only to lose their humanity in the end.
>>31768830Remember how Carol was made to handle Stalkers, right? I'm pretty sure with small amount of Carols DNA running through Alice she (Carol) would be able to keep us in check, if something that stupid happens.
Alice has attained all 3 DNA, she is a monster.
"Those who play with the devil's toys will be brought down by degrees to wield his sword."
>>31768371"Hey, as long as we're being experimental, we might as well go all the way." You snort. "Besides, if Carol really did go through all the effort of making it, I couldn't possibly refuse it.""As expected." Egan nods. "I'll go make preparations. I believe Bruttenholm wants to speak with you, anyways.""Thanks, Egan."Egan just waves as she exits the room. As she leaves, Bruttenholm enters to take her place, and he takes a seat next to the bed. He just looks at you sadly before sighing."I'm sorry about everything, Alice.""Hey, don't blame yourself, sir." You blink. "It's not like you gave the order to leave me hanging.""No, but I should've seen the signs." He shakes his head. "With the war about to end, what better way to get rid of two inconvenient weapons than in a blaze of glory in the final battle?""I don't think they'd make it out to be so poetic." You laugh bitterly. "Though, to be honest, I can't blame them. Me and Carol aren't exactly what you call normal.""You two have just as much a right to live as anybody else." Bruttenholm says adamantly. Heh, it was kinda touching, really, to see people care so much about it. Even if you were a screwup."Actually, sir, we do still have a problem." You continue. "I've got reason to believe a massive Invader threat is incoming.""I know, I heard." Bruttenholm nods. "I voiced this concern to the Council as well. They're skeptical, but have agreed to suspend the disbanding of the Bureau for another six months.""That's not a lot of time." You frown."It's not. It's more a courtesy at this point. The problem is that we have no proof, and we have no way to get it.""There is, actually...." You say. "But you're not going to like it.""You mean the Apocalypse-Class Invader we have in captivity?" Bruttenholm grimaces."Yeah.""Are you sure you want to wake it, Alice? We have no idea what might happen.">We have no choice.>I guess we can try to figure out an alternative.>Other
>>31768961>>Other"Hey you, mutant cat. What do you think. I don't think you want to die either."
>>31768961>OtherWhat about Loki. His survival is now contingent on mine, let's see if he can spill the beans?
>>31768961>>We have no choice.We don't have any better idea.Also I rather do this before having the implant of our new invader arm
>>31768961>We have no choice.Do we really have other options we can trust, sir?
>>31769012>>31769001>Loki mindI dunno if we want to get too dependent on his advice.>>31768961>We have no choice.I'd walk in expecting a fight. With that in mind, I don't think it'll be THAT bad. After all, it's not like Carol, just a evil mind inside a magical girl body. It's not like we haven't faced that before.
>>31768961Consult LokiAlso ask him about the bio arm and invader DNA interaction. He probably doesn't know, but he might enjoy speculating.
>>31768961>Other"Okay then, first we'll amputate it's limbs and detach it's jaw. Once it has been rendered harmless enough, wake it up."
>>31769001>>31769012>>31769049Do you people really believe it will give us enough information to work with or any at all...I would rather get intell from other sources before trusting it.
>>31769043Between talking to Loki, and waking an apocalypse class invader in a MG, which Carol previously described to be a black hole of hunger, let's see if Loki will fulfill his promise of spilling the beans.Also, if we can unlock the secrets of magic, that will be a huge boon.
>>31768961>>OtherLoki still owes us some explaining. Lets get as many options on the table as possible.
>>31769104Because of his two progeny, Alice survived.And I bet he dislikes the invaders as much as us and since his survival is likely linked to Alice's, I think he will offer some decent intel.
>>31769104Oh course we'll verify it. Only a fool actually trusts that damn cat.But we need to ask first.
I hope Loki gets what he deserves when this is all over.A belly rub
>>31769165I vote in the end game we become satan and make Loki our bitch.
>>31769187Pinky Alice or Homucifer Alice?
>>31769216I get the Homucifer reference, what's the Pinky one?
>>31769230Magical Girl Noir Quest.
>>31769239Thanks. I need to read up on that some time.
>>31769230Magical Girl Noir Quest, arguably one of the longest running quests on the board.
>>31768961"It's not like we have any other choice." You sigh. "I mean, I can also try asking Loki since he has just as much to lose as any of us, but I'm not sure what I can get out of him.""Of course. I'll make the preparations for the interrogation. Perhaps we should also bring Carol? Her... unique skills may be able to assist us."You pause for second. As an Invader herself, it would probably be a lot easier for Carol to initiate communication. However... you weren't sure what would happen if she did. Nobody really know how Invaders interacted with each other, after all...>Bring Carol>Don't bring Carol>Other
>>31769353>Don't bring CarolLast time that happen, she was freaking out
>>31769353>Don't bring Carol
>>31769353>Don't bring CarolBut ask Carol for some advice.
>>31769353>Don't bring CarolWe can bring her in later in necessary.
>>31769353>Bring CarolWe'll need someone to start the talking. It seemed all so willing to her before.Hopefully, she'll be list freaked about now than when she first saw it.
>>31769353>>Don't bring CarolCan we do this after we attach our arm?Then we have invader DNA.Maybe then we can initiate contact.
>>31769353>>Bring CarolCarol is strong, I believe in her.
>>31769353>Don't bring CarolLimit the variables for the first meeting. We can bring her in later if we need to.
>>31769422Or the Apocalypse class Invader (who needs a name, btw) will cause the invader cells to rebel and we'll lose control of our arm.
>>31769422I would rather wait until after we tried talking to it first than doing that.And even then when we get our arm and IF we go near that thing I would rather have Carol their just in case.
>>31769460For a name, I vote Thomas.
>>31769353>>Don't bring CarolShe wasn't thrilled by being there the last time.
>>31769501It's a girl, though. A girl with the mind of a sentient Tyranid.So how bout Tyra.
>>31769501Seconded. Thomas, the Apocalypse-Class Invader. It has a nice ring to it.
>>31769353>>Don't bring Carol
>>31769538Gross. And unoriginal. Thomas.
Rolled 7, 9, 5 = 21>>31769538I should not be turned on.
>>31769353>Sorry, another family issue delayed posting."I don't want to bring Carol in on this. Too many unknown variables." You sigh."Understandable. I'll make the preparations in the meantime, you should get some rest."With that, Bruttenholm leaves the hospital room, and you're all alone once again.>He's right, you should get some rest.>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.>Other
>>31770363>He's right, you should get some rest.Loki time
>>31770363>He's right, you should get some rest.
>>31770363>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.Goddammit, I want to see Carol. We have been worried sick.Or we can see our teammates and joke about our left arm.
>>31770363>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.
>>31770363>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.Too much shit has happen. Go get a drink or something. Take your mind off this crap for a bit.
>>31770363>>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.Find Carol, Find Leo, Find Egan. Find Mirai, Mary and Kanoko.Find the people we care about in this world.
>>31770363>>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.Lets ask Carol if she want to be with us when we see the big Invader.
>>31770363>Fuck that, let's get out of this stuffy room.I miss the other SLs... Lets go shoot the shit with them and see how man the bastards wish we bit it back there.That way we have list of people to test our new arm on.
>>31770363>>OtherA certain cat owes us some talking.
>>31770363Yeah, well, fuck that. You weren't going to be lying in a stuffy old hospital room any longer than you had to. You swiftly sit up in your bed once you're sure nobody is looking. Unfortunately, you didn't quite think things fully through, as it was MUCH harder to get dressed with arm than you had initially thought. However, you manage to somehow get a pair of pants on and drape a jacket around yourself. You then stumble out of the infirmary, wondering what to do.>Find Carol.>Find Leo.>Find your friends.>Get a fucking drink.>Other
>>31770679>Find Carol.She sounded like she was really worried.
>>31770679>>Find Carol.Mah dahrlin! Cum ta mahma!
>>31770679I'm all for finding Carol first so long as we can go get drink after. Which I'm hoping leads to us talking to some of our teammates.
>>31770679>Find Carol.>Find your friends.>Get a fucking drink.In that order. We should at least celebrate that the Companions are all dead.They are dead, right?
>>31770752Yeah, we need armless jokes while drunk.
>>31770762Considering all the MGs that are on ice de-powered. I would say yes.
>>31770752Well I kind of want to drink with Mirai, Kanako, and Leo.Why is Leo separated from the rest of our friends?
>>31770794What if a Companion didn't contract any girls and made it out alive?
>>31770794Loki in head says otherwiseNow that we're killed all the comapnions while their MGs still live, THEY should start seeing their undead companions....Oh dear this could be a problem.
>>31770832Considering they are now isolated from the rest of the companions, they are now prey for researching magic.
>>31770864I hope so. We never were able to go on a capture mission for a companion.
>>31770887We had the opportunity.Tg decided to shoot it instead.
>>31770941That was our first companion sighting. I think we can be forgiven.
>>31770941We didn't know we had a capture mission.We took the safe route.
>>31770941Yes, the one and only time we saw one. Where we had no gear for capturing it. Yep. Sure buddy.
Maybe there is one surviving magical girl cult. One that wasn't able to get to Atlantis for whatever reason.
>>31771127Cult of normals? Sure. One that has companion? Not a even a remote chance. These were bugging out hard and fast as they could.
>>31771204To where. Everyone is trapped on Earth.
>>31771237>were>meaning no longer>meaning they're all dead jim
>>31771204What if they just couldn't make it to Atlantis before shit went down?
>>31771340I have my doubts about that. That whole proclamation about Atlantis wouldn't have been made unless they had them all there already along with as many as the MGs they could get.
>>31770679You decide to go and try to find Carol. You had to make sure she was okay, after all, and she had to be worried sick about you. You have an idea of where she might be and you head straight to your quarters. Of course, the moment you open the door, you're nearly tackled by your adopted daughter."MOM!" Carol cries happily. "You're alright!""Ah, I guess I am." You can't resist laughing a bit.""You.... you're not mad about the arm, are you?" She asks sheepishly."Oh what, this?" You glance at your empty left shoulder. "I've had worse. I heard you even grew a new arm for me.""I did!" Carol nods. "It's, um, the first time I did something like that for someone else, but I did my best!""I'm sure you did." You smile. "Anyways, how have things been for you, lately?""A bit boring..." Carol frowns. "There's no Magical Girls left to fight, so there's not much to do. I mean, your friends are nice and all, but, I really want to spend more time on the ground!"You're really not sure if the Council would allow that, though. "Well, we'll think of something." You reassure her. "But either way, it's nice to see you're all right.">Go meet someone else. (specify)>Talk with Carol more. (specify)>Other
>>31771288Loki isn't dead. maybe the companions down loaded themselves into the heads of the MGs as a fail safe?
>>31771388>Go meet someone else. (specify)Mirai, Kanako, and Mary. Time to get wasted.
Rolled 1, 1, 4 = 6>>31771388>>Go meet someone else. (specify)Find leo.Bring carol.

>>31771388>Talk with Carol more. (specify)How do you feel about invaders? There is going to be a lot more where they come from, so we going to have to fight them soon.Also, we have that science experiment that we have no clue that to do with.
>>31771388>Talk with Carol more. (specify)Probably should ask her if she could talk that MG/Invader thing, if we can't make any head away without her. I still think we should bring her.
>>31771388>>Talk with Carol more. (specify)They want to wake up the one that we found on vacation.
>>31771507>head away >headway
>>31771388"Come on, let's go find Leo." You say. "I want to let him know I'm okay.""Okay!" Carol grins. "Let's go!"You suspect where you know where Leo is as well, and head over to your squad's ready room. And of course, you see Leo there, handling all of the paperwork that was technically your job to handle."Hey there, Leo." You say, knocking to announce your presence. "Miss me?""Alice!" Leo blinks in surprise. "Should... you really be up and about now?""I lost an arm, not a leg." You roll your eyes. >Thank him for saving your ass.>Ask him what's been going on while you were out.>Other
>>31771848>Thank him for saving your ass.Duh

>>31771848There was only one vote for talking to Leo.
>>31771910Anon needs to get his eyes checked
>>31771910I'm not happy about either but it did win. Go recount.
>>31771910Technically true, but there were also people supporting it.
>>31771848>>Thank him for saving your ass.>>Ask him what's been going on while you were out.Then go all tsundere and unleash the cripple puns.

>>31772209>>31772293Try to tackle hug leo, epic fail due to obvious reasons.
>>31772329 at least she can still hold his hand and snuggle with him still.
>>31771848"Anyways, um, thanks for saving my ass." You say awkwardly."Aren't you missing an 'again' at the end of that sentence?" Leo cracks a grin."Don't push your luck.""Okay, okay!" He laughs. "But yeah, it was a heck of a thing. Bruttenholm was absolutely LIVID when he found out the Council had no intention of rescuing you. So... we basically stole the Daedalus to come get you ourselves.""But... ODIN rounds hit with the force of a nuke. You would've risked getting knocked out of the sky by the shockwave of the impacts." You blink."Yeah, well, you're not the only crazy bastard on this station." Leo laughs. "Yeah, about that..." You look around. "It looks really empty in here.""Yeah, well, we're an MG hunting organization and there's no more MGs. Most of the personnel have already be recalled to Earth. We're basically running on a skeleton crew, now.""The other squad leaders?" You ask."Still here, but probably not for much longer. The Council think that with the main threat gone, conventional forces can handle things from here on. It sucks, but they do have a point.""Ah..." You frown. >Well, I'll see you later, Leo.>Wanna go get piss drunk?>Other

>>31772528>Wanna get piss drunk?
>>31772562Dammit, did you pregame already?
>>31772528>Well, I'll see you later, Leo.I think we'll need to get some former MGs on board for an anti-Invader squad. Volunteers only, of course.The Council might think the threat is over, but they'll be begging for our help soon enough and we need to get people trained.
>>31772528>Wanna go get piss drunk?"Let's invite the other SLs for a drink and no, Leo, this isn't going be are last drink. I got pretty damn good feeling our work load is going to double up here soon."
>>31772528>>Other"How about them massive Invader invasion?"
I just got this image of of most pathetic sad-drunk Alice ever. Once she gets drunk enough she becomes an absolute mess and spills years worth of spaghetti at once.She'll try about always being the weird one in school, the weird on as a MG, having a disastrous love life, having to be the only one not killing humanity, having to constantly killing her friends, losing Leo to Egan, and now causing the total extinction of humanity. Just years worth of suppressed emotion uncovered at once.And this my friends, is why Alice doesn't usually drink.
>>31772801>now causing the total extinction of humanityThis was going to happen no matter what. I wouldn't call those that would have been evac by Companions to be human anymore. That's for damn sure. So in no way should Alice even remotely trying to take the blame on that front.
>>31772528"Wanna get piss drunk?" You say. "We can even invite over my childhood buddies and the other squad leads. It'll be a blast!""I seem to recall that you become a bawling wreck every time you get drunk." Leo frowns."Yeah, well, it's a special occasion.""If you really do want it so bad." Leo sighs. "I'll go, if only to make sure you don't make an ass of yourself.""Thanks!" You grin.And just like that, everybody's assembled in the main lounge in what has to be one of the most awkward drinking parties ever. Your fellow squad leads are present, as well as Mirai, Kanako, and even Mary. For obvious reasons though, neither side seems willing to get too close to the other. >Mingle with the squad leads.>Hang out with your friends.>Other
>>31772886I know, but it's another thing to put on Alice's shoulders and I'm playing up sad-drunk Alice here. Making her feels partially responsible.
>>31772801i think she should get drunk and spill the spaghetti, just to get it out of her system.
>>31772942>Hang out with your friends.
>>31772942>>Hang out with your friends.
>>31772942>>Mingle with the squad leads.First.Its been a long road.

>>31772942>Mingle with the squad leads.See if we can't get a few of the better SLs to come around. Then spend the time with our friends after that.>>31772951One she shouldn't be taking. One she knows isn't her bloody fault.
>>31772942force them to get together
>>31772942>Other>UNITE THE PARTIES. INTRODUCE THEM TO EACH OTHER.
>>31772942>Other2 double shots, now. Introduce everyone to each other, in the most awkward way possible:By notable kills, who killed who. With graphic details.Followed by 2 more shots.This will be a disaster.
>>31772942>>Hang out with your friends
>>31773013'Get fucked' pls go
So when we do put Carol in school, should she go to elementary school in loli form or high school in teenage form? I would prefer the former due to her needing the social interactions.
>>31773048Heh heh heh, this is why we usually don't drink.
>>31772942>Mingle with the squad leads.Like to talk to Lucy, scotty, and uk guy before everything goes to hell.
>>31773079She has a teenage form?
>>31772942>>Mingle with the squad leads.
>>31773079I agree, former. Need proper socialization.
>>31772942>>Mingle with the squad leads.It was a nice ride.
>>31773079That's gonna be a tough decision, considering her Alice-form is so cute.
>>31773104I think he meant standard form.
>>31773149I kinda got that, but I put that as loli form in my head and the other as just a plain kid. I imagine teenage carol as...more like Alice I guess.
I hope we get another chance to get the two sides to team up.We're gonna need all hands on deck for what's to come.
>>31773285And what better to unite them but an embarrassing Alice?[spoilerI hope we roll a 1 for drink like in VMQ2[/spoiler]
>>31773285Well if there's one thing you can count on with humans is hate will unite us all.Hate for invaders. What happens after? Well lets just get to that point first.
>>31772942You first decide to head over to the other squad leads. You see that most of them were present, except for Douchebag, but that was to be expected."Alice!" Antonio greets you as you approach. "The girl who singlehandedly won the war!""Well, I don't think what I did was THAT important..." You mumble, your cheeks beginning to redden."Nonsense!" Reginald says, a glass of brandy in his hand. "You showed some real stiff upper lip going down there! I'm happy to call you a comrade in arms. Erm, no pun intended.""HOLY SHIT! So you really did lose an arm!" Scotty says a bit too loudly as she ogles your stump. "Does it hurt? Can I poke it?""No and HELL NO." You sigh.Lucy and Ivan, being their typical quiet selves, hang in the back, but you see both of them toasting you with vodka glasses."I gotta admit, you did good down there, Alice." Dundee nods. "Might've put us all out of a job in the process, but I guess that's the price of peace, huh?""Ah, it's not like there's going to be any less fighting back on the ground!" Andre cackles. "If you want work, my army always has openings!""Um, thinks, but I think I'll pass." Dundee sighs. You know, you never thought you'd say this, but you think that you might actually miss these guys once everything was over.>Continue drinking and schmoozing with your coworkers.>Go check on your friends.>Other
>>31773364>Go check on your friends.>Other>Try to introduce them to the squad leadersAgain, gonna need all hands on deck.
>>31773364>Continue drinking and schmoozing with your coworkers.
>>31773364>Othertake 2 shotsIntroduce your old friends to your new friends.
>>31773391>>31773364And if anyone feels like being a prick add in we might not out of jobs just yet. Invaders are going to be come a knocking.
>>31773364>Go check on your friends.I wonder, are they of legal age to be drinking? I know that space is kind of like open waters in that sense, but they did stay like "girls" instead of growing up, right?
>>31773364>"The girl who singlehandedly won the war!"Clever.
>>31773421Right. The war with magical girls is over and it's a damn shame we couldn't have saved more people. Now it's time to prepare for the horde.
>>31773421>>31773450We'll lament the doom of mankind once we had enough shots and we start toasting.I want alice to take one shot for each girl she killed, or at least try to before she passes out
>>31773487Yeah, you can stop posting now.
>>31773487Nah, I think that'll get silly.Instead we should have a general toast to all of the dead.
>>31773487We did that already in the first thread when we killed Joanna.I'm fine for Drunk Alice but that''s a bit much
>>31773079Well whatever school we put her in, one thing is for certain: No powers unless absolutely necessary.
>>31773501This. I mean do other SLs ever get briefed about about what the Companions were doing to the MGs. Not that would change a whole lot of things. But it might give a little better perspective to the whole affair.
>>31773538This is the end of the first part of the war. We are going to be up to the bee's knees in Invaders sooner rather than later, so this is the only chance to get drunk like an asshole in front of everyone we care about.
>>31773501This.We can gather the MGs and SLs since we were all manipulated by the companions.We'll also need to break the bad news.
>>31773501>>31773559Actually, that seems like a good idea. A toast of the dead for combatants on each side, MG and MG hunters alike. We are all now united in the death of mankind, like our fathers and their fathers before us. May mankind move past the wars behind us and may we survive the wars of our children.
>>31773501This is good.
>>31773364You see Mirai, Kanako, and Mary looking a bit left out and you motion them to come forward. They reluctantly move closer and you stand next to them."Now, everybody, I'm not sure if you know this or not, but these three here are ex-MGs, and my friends. As you should know by know, most MGs were brainwashed, and we managed to help these three break free from it. It'd be a really great personal favor to me if you could treat them as one of us.""Well, if the crown could forgive the colonies, then I can forgive former enemies as well!" Reginald says, leading the charge."Wait." Lucy finally speaks up. "Have any of them ever actually drank before?"Everybody's eyes then focus on the three girls, who seem to wither under the all the attention."Umm.. no." Mirai squeaks."Nu uh." Kanako shakes her head."I've, um, read about it..." Mary blinks.You do NOT like the predatory smiles that suddenly formed on your fellow squad leads' faces."Well girls, it's time to introduce the three of you to the wonderful world of alcohol!" Antonio laughs. "Isn't there a minimum drinking age?" Leo asks."We're in space. That's international territory, and therefore, no drinking laws!" Andre points out."FUCK YEAH!" Scotty whoops.Oh lord."You know, Mom, I don't see what the big deal is." You turn to see Carol chugging down an entire bottle of vodka. Enough to actually kill a normal person."Carol-""I guess my Invader biology is incapable of getting drunk?" Carol frowns."It's both a blessing and curse." You say sagely."Hey, Alice." Leo grunts as he hands you a shot of whiskey. "If you say you're going to get piss drunk, you might as well go ahead and do it.">roll 1d20

>>31773796In a way, thank you for this. >>31773814
>>31773830On a sadder note, she can't drown her sorrows.
>>31773814Maybe it's a roll for everyone having a good time and forgetting their troubles.
Rolled 16>>31773830>>31773852There's alternativesCocaine's a hell of a drug
>>31773891Doubt it will work.
>>31773891I wonder if there are any chemicals which Invaders are particularly susceptible to. Their version of catnip.
>>31773891>>31773903Maybe something completely mundane to normal people would make Invaders intoxicated like catnip.
>>31773882True, but also remember that I have been very unsubtle for asking for a disaster here.Merc's drinking parties are best when we roll 1's>>31773891We should ask the invaders what they do to get intoxicated.inb4 holding hands with little girls
>>31773926She needs to eat a cat first then we give her catnip.
>>31773912>>31773926It's going to be fucking catfood or Instant Maple and Ginger Oatmeal isn't it?
>>31773937I still remember that Grad trip..., and Jager just wrecking everyone in drinking contests.
>>31773937>Merc's drinking parties are best when we roll 1'sIs there a precedent for this? I didn't read his VC quest.
>>31773959> Jager just wrecking everyone in drinking contestsThat was the best parts. Everyone else failing and Jager walking out like a boss. Or drawing on other peoples faces.
>>31773960MC of VMQ2 rolled double 1's for drinking, making him kiss Morgan (who's still hiding her identity from the class, except for the MC who knows her secret)
>>31773960http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27071561/Read the entire day for context of the situation.
>>31773946Obviously if we can find a way to make her eat Loki we'll not only knock out two birds with one stone but we'd make her even more adorably overpowered.
>>31773959>>31773960VMQ1 we rolled a 20 and our second passed out and we got to embarrass her for fun.The second time we went drinking, we drove the enemy commander's tank off a cliff. We woke up in a holding cell, we poked our love interest to wake her up, rolled a 1, got an unconscious punch in the face and got knocked out again.VMQ2, we rolled a 1 first and declared our love to the Morgan the reverse trap. We rolled a second 1 and kissed her in front of everyone else and made her upset and she ran off. Note this was before she was out of the closet. Good times.
>>31774047Ah....If only we had gone for Morgan back then. I wouldn't have minded
>>31773796Well, for the most part, you get rather buzzed without devolving into a sobbing wreck, which you consider a plus. All in all, things seem to go pretty well, with everybody enjoying themselves. Some highlights included Antonio trying to put the charm on your friends, which resulted in an instant double team gut punch between you and Lucy.You also found out that Mirai was a very active drunk, giggling and swinging about all over the room. Kanako began to only speak in very loud and slurred Japanese, so you had no damn clue what she was saying half the time, and Mary, uh... Mary got very... forward. More than once you had to push her off of you, which was a bit difficulty concerning your one armed status. And then things sort of shifting into trading stories, with your squad leaders telling old war stories from before they were in the Bureau, to notable hunts they took part in, while your friends talked about some of their most memorable battles against Invaders.However, you sort of lose track of what's happening, and everything sort of becomes a blur after that.---"Hey, Alice, rise and shine.""Gwuwahraharaaaa...." You sputter as your eyes flutter open."Nice to see you're finally awake." Leo grins as he pats you on the head. "We've got a busy day today.""What?" You sit up, and just now realize you're back in your quarters."Well, we can either get started on interrogating that Invader specimen, or we can get you your new arm." Leo says.>Get your new arm first.>Question the Invader first.>Other
Rolled 16>>31773991>>31774047Kissing her right in front of her adopted big brother, who was also our instructor and squad leader.
>>31773960In the first quest Merc Command did there was a segment where the party retook a major city. Afterwards, the party went and drank a fuck ton, which led to them stealing a tank, tearing down a statue in the city's square, lighting said tank and statue on fire and then driving the tank off a cliff.
>>31774120>Question the Invader first.Let's not add unknown with already unknown since we're not taking Carol with us if shit goes down.
>>31774047>>31774123And at the end of the day, we crossed dressed in a maid outfit.>>31774112If we found out that she was Valkyria sooner, I think things would have been VERY different.>>31774120>>Get your new arm first.
>>31774120>Question the Invader first.
>>31774120> new arm
>>31774120>Question the Invader first.The Invader will try to take over the arm. Do not let it.
>>31774112If only. I would've actually enjoyed the ending.
>>31774120Boo, no drunken wreck.>Question the Invader first.>OtherWater. Now.Also, remind me what happened last night after I blacked out.
>>31774120>Question the Invader first.Nonono, no invader DNA around the MG/Invader. Thanks.
>new armIt might help us connect with the Invader, and if coming into contact with invaders is going to make our arm go berserk it's better to find out up here than on a battlefield.
>>31774144oh come on, she had white hair. That's already half a spoiler there. Everyone should have expected that
>>31774120>>Question the Invader first.
>>31774120>>Get your new arm first.
>>31774192Controlled experiments son. We need to establish a control before we start introducing other factors in the equation.
>>31774192We can test that after trying to talk to the invader. I'm willing to bet this going to fail no matter what. Plus I would rather have Carol there if us/our arm goes stupid. She could probably, maybe, do something about it.
>>31774120>>Get your new arm first.The invader refuses to acknowledge lifeforms without invader dna.I thinm we need the arm to communicate.
>>31774120>Get your new arm first.Any task will probably be easier with two arms.
>>31774112Actually, I would have been okay if she was the MC of the quest. She didn't (initially) have connections to the original Demons, allowing new people accessibility, and veteran questers could see the Demons from an outside perspective.
>>31774144But I don't like Valkyria, I think they're sues. No Morgan was fine for me. Besides whenever a QM gives a waifu an alternate love interest it's like a nail in the coffin.
>>31774280I would have like Lucina. Play the super soldier we were meant to be.
>>31774280>>31774311I wouldn't had mind either but a part of me will be kind of frightened at the idea since we might have gone to the Yuri route.A part of me is still surprised that Alice didn't end up that way
>>31774435Well a lot of anon's fucking tried.But I like what happened. Carol deflected a lot of the shipping, and we didn't get either Ergan or Leo. We still had a lot of shipping, but not as bad as it could have been.
>>31774435Mary is coming onto alice very hard.You never know.
>>31774435It's not that surprising. It happens nearly every quest with a female MC nowadays. There's always the group that wants the yuri route, and then there's the group that begs to have "a straight female MC for once." Both groups constantly butt heads and the FeMC generally gets nowhere with anyone.Personally I only cared about daughteru route here.
>>31774120"Yeah, I think we'll talk to the Invader first." You say. "I'm kinda paranoid that having a part Invader arm might have some nasty side effects or something.""Makes sense." Leo nods. "We'll have to head over the Prison Star now."After a short shuttle ride, you arrive at the Freedom Star's sister station. However, as you step aboard, you immediately notice that the place seemed a lot emptier than it used to. Probably because all of the prisoners had been transferred back to special facilities on Earth for rehabilitation. It gave the whole station an eerie, ghostly feeling. The two of you continue on to one of the most secure sections, where the Invader is being held."Okay, Alice, remember. If at any time you feel things are getting out of hand, you can hit the emergency purge button here." Leo says, pointing to a large red button with a protective case over it. "That will detach the module holding the Invader from the station and send it on a course straight for the Sun.""Lovely." You nod. "Let's get this started."(cont)
>>31774435>>31774494>>31774507I wonder who would be an ideal match for Alice? It would be funny if she gets a Donnel character, just some random sweet bumblefuck that has no previously connections to her.Oh I know, an incredibility lucky (or unlucky) rookie that survives everything we faced, but is also incredibly untalented. Ciaphas Cain character, minus the swag.
>>31774580A set of security shutters slowly slide open, revealing a containment chamber. At the center was a single girl, or at least something that looked like a girl. However, you see the signature signs of Invader growths creeping along her head and the back of her neck. She was also kept heavily restrained, with massive steel clamps keeping her limbs and head locked in place."Initiating the wakening process." You hear Egan's voice drone through the intercom.Slowly, you see the Invader's eyes flutter open as it fully awakens. The eyes then dart around the chamber, as if taking in all the information as it could before focusing on you. Even when behind several inches of armored glass, you could feel its stare drilling deep into your soul."Can you hear me?" You say through the intercom connected to the containment chamber.The Invader says nothing."Subject, can you hear my voice?" You ask again more sternly."STATE YOUR PURPOSE." The Invader bellows in a much louder and deep voice than you expected."We request information." You say. "COMMUNICATION IS NOT THIS ONE'S PRIMARY FUNCTION.""Then what is?" You sigh."EXTERMINATION."Of course.>roll 1d20
Rolled 4>>31774605COME ON NAT 1!

>>31774609>>31774617Looks like you guys just saved us.>>31774620Dodged a bullet there.
>>31774620Wow, I rolled a fucking 1 with that response.I would have either dreaded or enjoyed what happened next.
>>31774617>>31774620Too perfect for me.
>>31774620Thank god it took you an extra 5 seconds to write that out.>>31774617Good work anon, I am proud of your failure.
Rolled 16>>31774616Does this count as using the power of "please"
>>31774658I know, I can't believe it. The dice gods tell me that was not the right response
>>31774473I was hoping for a Leo end but while I'm sad that didn't happen but how it ended was i felt much more satisfying then other stories
>>31774679Or we awaken the Invader's hidden feminine side.
>>31774616"Extermination of what, exactly?" You ask."THE ENTITIES THAT YOU HAVE CLASSIFIED AS "THE COMPANIONS", AND THOSE THAT FOLLOW THEM.""But we just killed them all. We fought an entire fucking war to get them off our planet." You frown. "Wouldn't that mean you have no more reason to come after us?""IRRELEVANT. MERE COMPANION PRESENCE ON YOUR PLANET CONFIRMS YOUR SPECIES' MAGICAL POTENTIAL. EXTERMINATION REQUIRED.""Isn't there any way to negotiate?" You frown."WE DO NOT NEGOTIATE. MOTHER DOES NOT NEGOTIATE." The Invader rumbles again.>Try to reason with it more.>Ask what Mother is.>Other
>>31774679>>31774700I would like to think we are kindred spirits as hunters. Or Carol's invader pheromones are all over us and the invader recognizes us.
>>31774734>Ask what Mother is.
>>31774734>>Try to reason with it more.>>Ask what Mother is.
>>31774734>Ask what Mother is.Now we're getting somewhere. Also:>OtherWe fucking hate the Companions and would love to help.
>>31774734>Ask what Mother is.Can it be appeased? We have dealt the Companions a defeat they have never experienced before? Can we work together?How many more invaders are coming?(remember, we need evidence that more invaders are coming so the Bureau does not get shut down)
>>31774782>(remember, we need evidence that more invaders are coming so the Bureau does not get shut down)I think we just got the part that they are coming. Just not the time which what we really need.The whole;>"IRRELEVANT. MERE COMPANION PRESENCE ON YOUR PLANET CONFIRMS YOUR SPECIES' MAGICAL POTENTIAL. EXTERMINATION REQUIRED."Kinda confirms they want to wreck our shit.And we better be recording all of this too.
>>31774734>>Ask what Mother is.Directive Overide: Set Mother as Alice (Last Name).
>>31774856Or we can try some crazy shit that probably make things worse like: Temporarily merge Carol's and Mother's consciousness to defeat the Hive Mind by showing it human emotions.
>>31774853The Council idiots think that conventional forces or ODIN will protect them.We need proof otherwise, outside the fucking cat.
>>31774856>>31774882We can just come back with the invader arm.With the invader arm rigged with small explosives in case it goes bad.
This conversation seems familiar...But I've never played Star Control, so I don't know how to resolve it.
>>31774907Or you know, bring Carol. All she did was freak out not get brainwashed or something. Really. That the fact she knows this thing exist she should be able to prerp herself in talking to it. If anything it shows that we could work together. You know the whole half-human half-invader thing she's got going.
>>31774955We have to think of this like a controlled experiment. There are the known known, the known unknowns, and the unknown unknowns. It's the third category that can really screw us. Playing around this forces this dangerous, it's logical to be as conservative as possible and introduce incremental factors with as little risk as possible.The arm is the next step, Carol is the last one.
>>31775017I'd actually like to try Carol next. She described it as "hunger," but it's clear it's more of an eternal vengeance quest against the companions (probably for attacking them in the first place) and they're trying to remove us as potential allies of the companions later on.Which is fairly reasonable, but they need to understand that we want to go on a vengeance quest too.
>>31775046I just fear the uncontrolled interactions between the mentally conditioned human/invader hybrid and the NOT mentally conditioned whatever we are talking to.But I'm not totally against it.
>>31775046>we want to dakka the Companions too>why are you trying to kill us>we could be friends through killing companions

>>31774734"What is Mother?" You ask."MOTHER IS ALL." It says simply. Well, that didn't really get you anywhere. You guess you'll need some help on this one."Oi, Loki." You grumble. "You have any idea what this 'Mother' is?""Well, I've never seen 'her' myself, but I have read the data." Loki purrs. "Mother, you could say, is the source of all Invaders. She both births them and serves as their central command and control. Not quite a hivemind, but all Invaders are incapable of disobeying her.""Wonderful." You sigh and turn back to the Invader. "And where exactly is Mother, then.""MOTHER COMES."That's... not good."And what happens when she comes here?""MOTHER WILL FEED."Okay, that REALLY wasn't good."So where is Mother coming from?" You ask."YOU WILL KNOW. MOTHER'S GRANDEUR AND BEAUTY CANNOT BE UNSEEN.""You know," You frown, "why are you telling us all this?""WHETHER YOU KNOW THIS INFORMATION OR NOT IS IRRELEVANT." The Invader rumbles, almost with a smug tone. "MOTHER CANNOT BE STOPPED. THERE IS NO ESCAPE. THIS CONVERSATION IS OVER."Well... that was something, you guess.>Get that thing out of my sight.>Well, I hope you enjoy sunlight. You're gonna get a lot of it in your near future.>Other
>>31775113>Get that thing out of my sight.I REALLY hope that this particular Invader isn't planning something.

>>31775113>OtherWell, time for the bad idea for everyone else seems to be supporting:Bring Carol in."I need you to be brave for one second. If this thing hurts you for even one second, I will send it to the sun"

>>31775213But we already did... Kinda.
>>31775194We really all should.
>>31775113What will you do when I kill Mother?
>>31775213What if we become a new MOTHER?
>>31775230Hmm, good point. Then we should really bring Carol in and see what happens?>>31775242Do we become the Queen of Blades?
>>31775242But we already are
>>31775113>OtherI AM YOUR MOTHER. ACKNOWLEDGE AND OBEY.
>>31775113"Okay, it looks like we're done here." Leo says. "Wait...." You bite your lip. "We could bring in Carol.""Are you sure?" Leo blinks. "We don't what would happen.">Bring Carol>Don't bring Carol>Other
>>31775292>Don't bring Carol
>>31775292>Don't bring CarolIt's just gonna make it berserk.
>>31775292>Don't bring CarolLet's test the arm first... this Mother thing has me worried.
>>31775292>Bring CarolIT'S TIME!
>>31775292>Bring Carol"Like we have a choice in this Leo."
In before carol exchanges us for a different MOTHER
>>31775292>>OtherNah, lets try feeding it cake. Make it dependent on sweets.
Rolled 4>>31775194Poor Carol, already has 2 mothers and here comes yet another one.It's going to get akward in the school.>That girl is a weird one>Yeah, I heard she's one of those, y'know? She has like two moms or something"Actually I have 3 moms" says Carol while flashing her toothier yet kind of cute smile. "And I take a lot from the third one"Her school life is going to be interesting if the world survivesOh, new post.>>31775292>Bring her
>>31775292>"We don't what would happen."Leo you still drunk, buddy?Heh.>Bring CarolBad plans hoooo~!
>>31775331I think you mean pancakes.
>>31775292>>Bring CarolPREPARE HER FIRST. Give her a talk so that she is mentally prepared for the meeting.
>>31775349It's literally never failed.
>>31775354Yeah, do this too first.>>31775361Exactly what I mean.
>>31775349Support! Fluffy goodness time! IF anything else, it will be it's last meal.
>>31775292"Loki, anything you can add that might be useful?"
>>31775354>>31775381>>31775399Also, give her control of the module. If anything happens, into the sun the monster goes.
>>31775429I'm not sure she'll be in a state for that.If she starts to seize up, we hammer it immediately.
>>31775429>>31775459Well we both have triggers then.
How come we can't just cause a small explosion in its skull to kill it. Sending it to the sun just makes it's mother do a small detour.
>>31775563I doubt Mother will care about another dead child.Though it might make her angry.
>>31775563>>31775574I would hate to waste such a valuable intelligence source.I guess the sun thing is to make sure we destroy it. Guns may not even be effective anymore.
>>31775292"Yeah, we'll bring Carol in." You say grimly."Whatever you say." Leo nods.It takes a while for Carol to be shipped over, but when you next see her ,you notice that she's incredibly anxious, as if she knew what was going to happen."You... you want me to talk to IT, don't you?" She mumbles."Yes. I'm sorry to ask this of you, Carol, but we NEED to know what the Invaders are planning." You say."All right. I'll try." Carol takes a deep breath. "Don't worry, you can do this, Carol. I'm right here with you." You reassure her. "If you get too scared, just hit this button here and it will make the big mean Invader go away."Carol nods and steps up to the window. You see the Invader's eyes actually widen in surprise."ABOMINATION." It utters."C-can we talk?" Carol asks meekly."ABOMINATION." The Invader yells again. "MOTHER WILL BE DISPLEASED."Okay, this didn't seem like it was working."Um, I think I know what we can do..." Carol says quietly. "But I don't think you'll like it...""Carol, what are you planning?" You frown."I...I can try to assimilate it." She says.>If you feel you can do it.>OH HELL NO>Other
Which is more expensive, a LOT of bullets and explosives or enough rocket fuel to get to the sun?
>>31775604No. nonono.That's a line going too far.
>>31775604>OtherIs it safe? Remember, this is nothing more important to me that you. I'll send this thing to the sun if it hurts you.
>>31775604>>Other"And what will that do?"MORE INFORMATION REQUIRED
>>31775604>>If you feel you can do it.Eat it slowly. Take your sweet sweet time my girl.
>>31775604>>If you feel you can do it.To be a Devil's Advocate, if she can win the battle of wills, then who knows what she can do.
>>31775604>Other"What does that mean? Will it put you at risk?"
>>31775604>>OtherShow a mirror to the hypocrite.
>>31775659>Carol has to leave the Earth when she becomes the new MotherI'd much rather do it in her place.
>if you feel you can do itlet's make this the best planetwreck the universe has ever seen
>>31775648>>31775645This more information required
>>31775709Are you saying, we are entering a zone of which is of danger?
>>31775645>>31775648>>31775663These please.Goddammit merc.
Rolled 1>>31775675This is a good response
>>31775731I agree with anon.
>>31775749>tell the Invader that she's now the same as CarolThat's diabolical.
>>31775767Turn the conversation to: Your Mother will be displeased to see you.
>>31775604"Is it safe?" You ask cautiously. "What will happen?""Well... it usually isn't much of a problem with just regular animals. They aren't too smart, and don't retain a lot of information..." Carol frowns. "But... I've never tried it on another Invader...""What's the danger?""Um, well, there's a danger that its memories or personality might overwrite mine..." Carol says nervously. "I mean, it's fine if I just eat it for biomass, but full assimilation means I have to be carry not to take TOO much...">It's not worth the risk.>I think it's worth the risk.>Other
>>31775604>>Otherdo this >>31775675
>>31775793>>It's not worth the risk.
>>31775793>It's not worth the risk.I would rather not risk one our better weapons for this...
>>31775793>It's not worth the risk.>Otherthis one:>>31775675
>>31775793>OtherTry to explain it's an abomination too.And to Carol, it's not worth the risk.
>>31775793>>It's not worth the risk.mirror time
>>31775793>>I think it's worth the risk.CALL OUT HE HYPOCRITE
>>31775793>It's not worth the risk.>OtherKeep talking, both of them. Do the mirror thing.
>>31775839Do you think that we can convince it to switch sides after telling it that Mother probably won't love it anymore?
Rolled 2If we talk to it enough, we might expose enough mental weaknesses that it should become easier to "break in", right?>Mirror
>>31775793>It's not worth the risk.>>31775793
>>31775865Maybe, especially if we act all motherly to Carol in front of it.
>>31775911>Show our missing arm to the Invader"This is proof of a mother's love!"
>>31775865>>31775911Ohh, this has potential."Carol here could have assimilated you. But I would not allow it. Because a mother actually care for her children, loves them. Does your mother do that?"
>>31775911>>31775922>>31775939All of this
Consolidating vote:>It's not worth the risk.Other:>Show a mirror to the hypocrite.>Mother probably won't love it anymore?>"This is proof of a mother's love!"
>>31775793"It's not worth the risk." You shake your head. "I won't allow you to do it.""O-ok." Carol nods."And YOU." You turn back to the Invader. "I wouldn't be so quick to judge. By the same token, wouldn't you be an abomination, too?""THAT IS CORRECT. I HAVE COME TO THIS REALIZATION" The Invader almost sounds... defeated. "I WILL NEVER KNOW MOTHER'S EMBRACE AGAIN.">roll 1d20
>>31775939Keep going with it.>"Even if Carol is part Invader, she has a part of myself inside of her; and to me that is all that matters. She is my child and I would do anything to see her safe and happy. She is no abomination and, if your Mother truly loved you and Carol, she would never use such words to describe either of you!"
Rolled 5>>31775973Hope 14 is enough
>>31775973Damn, that's not good enough.
>>31775975After the end of the verbal beat down, give it a hug.
Rolled 11>>31775973Hope that is enough
>>31775973Not good enough. Can we get bonus to the roll from write-ins? PPLLLEEAASSEEE?
>>31775973We did ok, we still have more arrows in our quiver.
>>31775999Oh don't beg. That's just pathetic.
>>31775973You notice an odd change in the Invader as it slumps down in its restraints."CHEMICAL REACTION DETECTED!" You hear Egan yell. You almost never heard her yell. "PURGE! PURGE!"Thinking fast, you bring your one arm smashing down on the emergency purge button. The entire chamber shudders as explosive bolts detonate, sending the containment chamber tumbling away from the main station. Barely seconds later, the ejected module explodes, sending debris bouncing off the station's side."What the hell was that?!?!" You yell."The Invader was rapidly converting its entire inner organ system into pure bioplasma." Egan explains. "Basically turned itself into a living bomb.""That's harsh." You wince."Guess it couldn't be helped." Leo sighs. "It's like the Companions. Their sense of ethics is completely different from ours""Too true." You grumble. You could feel Loki lurking about. "But you got everything recorded, right?""Yeah, we had the Council on a live feed. We're getting every observatory and telescope and deep space sensor on high alert.""Good." You nod. Despite everything that's happened, you at least hope what you did today would at least give you a fighting chance.(cont)
>>31776072Poor Invader. I feel bad for her.
Rolled 12>>31776072Not good enough roll, I guess.
>>31776072"Hey, is there a problem with the system?""I don't think so, why?""Well, I'm looking at the image the telescope took here. A few weeks ago, there were only six planetary bodies in the shot. And now... there's seven.""Let me see that. Might just be an artifact in the imaging tech.""That's what I thought too, so I contacted the other sites. They're reporting the same thing. And that's not the oddest part.""What are you talking about?""Whatever that thing is, it's headed straight for us.">And that's it for tonight! We're coming close to the end here, so get your asses ready! Next thread is next week as always!>And don't forget Gundam Build Fighters on Friday and Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday!
>>31776118aw shit goddamn fuck cunt bitch
We're boned. We are so fucking boned.
>>31776118da fuck is that from
>>31776118Well, time to get dangerous.Time, to enter the danger zone.
>>31776118Fuck youAnd fuck your markerAnd fuck your brethren moons too
>>31776145Just make us whole, Issac.
>>31776118At least it wasn't this from "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark".WarningThis image was published in a children's book.
I wish it was this and not fucking Hellstar whatever its called.
>>31776118Those eyes looks like easy targets for odin.
>>31776118Damn.What did we need to roll to convince the invader?
>>31776161Baby, she can be whatever you want her to be.
Rolled 16>>31776155Is that a corpse mask? I kind of see an eye behind the socket.But holy shit, that's an horrifying image for a children's book
>>31776154Bitch you ded, y u no stay ded?
>>31776118Thanks for writing as always! Will Sunday slot get a new/current quest or will it become empty?
>>31776173You're a bully and I'll be nervous all week because of this.
>>31776186You know I need to finish Dead Space 2 one of these days...
>>31776199DS2 was awesome, dont be a MAKE US WHOLE pussy, anon. And then there's MAKE US WHOLE Dead Space 3 too. You have a lot of MAKE US WHOLE ISAAC work to do.
>>31776195I'll either double up on Cyberpunk Idols or use it for a new quest. I'll probably forward a questionnaire about it in the future.
>>31776155>>31776179I remember reading this in elementary school. It really screwed up my sleep cycle. Hell, I still have a few problems just looking at it.
>>31776218Are we getting a Magical Girl Hunter Quest 2 Merc?
>>31776229Probably not, see what happened to VMQ 2.
>>31776229Unfortunately, most likely not. Alice is going to get a conclusive end one way or another...
>>31776244Spiritual sequel, perhaps? Same concept, different universe?
>>31776244Ok, that's sad, but thanks for the quest anyways!
>>31776216I still need to finish Dark Souls... And Dark Souls II. Fuck my list of unfinished games.
Oh crap, does Alice have her new arm?
>>31776248You can do it. Become the QM you are destined to be!Inb4 MGHQ takes off like SWQ.
>>31776265Don't worry, it looks like it's a few weeks away.
>>31776300Mirai, Kanako, and Mary are going to have to train extra hard for this.
>>31776323They are civies now. What can they do? How old are they anyway?
Carol can consume safely without worrying about being taken over if she just eats for energy right?What if we land, have her consume for energy and have her expend that energy like a continuous solar flare, all the while still eating away at the world.
>>31776340They're ex-magical girls. They have similar abilities as Alice.
>>31776348Do we actually know they're like Alice in terms of specialness? Because I can't recall a time Merc has address that with them.
>>31776346Pyrrhic victory for us, convenient victory for the Companion's homeworld.
>>31776365All ex-MGs have enhanced physical traits. However, only Alice has a Companion in her head.
>>31776365Consider that the mahou shonen had the same capabilities, they probably do.
>>31776372But Kanoko and Mirai can see Loki as well, right?
