The time is morning, the weather is shitty, and the date is now August 28.You felt strange. That was probably because you slept in an awkward position. It may also be due to the strange amounts of green mana that seemed to settle over Asuka. It made her look she was someone who she was not. Before you blew any alarm bells however, you needed to clean yourself up first. This wasn’t the first time you’d have weird dreams. Funny, the mirror reflected that you yourself as well. The mana was green, just like Asuka’s. You didn’t feel any different. The instruments in the room were beeping in that same ordinary tone that they always did. Nothing was wrong there. Or maybe you were just going crazy.You had been quite busy last night. After fighting off a thousand powered suits and them some to steal an artificial human, which looked Last Order’s age to boot, you may have also saved the city in the process. That last bit was still pending. It was something that may have gotten Uiharu or Sparky in a lot of trouble. You were going to take responsibility for that though. After all, you didn’t skip town when you had the chance. At least no one died. Only Asuka was hurt badly. The doc had said that she’d wake up today. So far no dice, then again it was only morning. Thus you resumed your silent vigil. Since it was only morning you couldn’t help but be suspicious when the door to her room opened. It was not Heaven Canceller. It was,>A young girl>A woman>A grandma

>>33582969I think you forgot the picture there bored
>>33582969>>33583028My apologies you are correct.
>>33583043>Um, we stole the chemicaloid. Didn't we?
>>33583366Yes, I have fucked up again.
>>33583401everything comes in 3's, one more fuck up and then you're in the clear
>>33583401Talking about fuck ups, we didnt go in to our last job (or any job for that matter) with anything to conceal our identity's. We should probably get on that.
>>33583401Such is life.
>>33582954>A young girlShould we be concerned about all the green mana coming off of both us and Asuka?
>>33582954Wait.... we look like ourselves? So is the angel chick gonna bust in here and kill us?
>>33583484Yeah, but Teacher's letter is in our apartment, and Index is out of town. We could call the Sikh whose name I forgot, or hope Kyouko might have noticed something, but that's a long shot.
>>33583541No we don't. We see a lot of green mana around us.
>>33583541Well, the text says>Funny, the mirror reflected that you yourself as well.But I don't know what that means. Bored, please help me here. :P
>>33583572>It made her look she was someone who she was not.There's a word missing here, but it looks like mana-vision is mucking up the face-swapping.
It was a girl. She was younger than you. The Tokiwadai Middle School uniform gave it away. You don’t think you’ve ever met this Lady of Tokiwadai before. She had a fan with her, the only accessory that stood out from the tall, dark and bishoujo look she had going for her. That aside she seemed confused as your eyes met. Was she expecting Asuka to be alone? If anything, you deduced her identity rather quickly. Asuka didn’t have many friends, especially not ones at Tokiwadai. Thus she could only have been Kongou Mitsuko. Like Asuka, she was suffused in green mana as well but you were pretty sure she was an Ability User like yourself.“Good morning,” you greeted.“Good morning,” she returned.If anything, she didn’t lack in confidence though her fan did snap open to punctuate her statement. It moved to conceal the lower half of her face.“Kong-” “Kyri-”It seemed you both wanted to introduce yourself at once.“I am Kongou Mitsuko, a pleasure to make your acquaintance.”“Kyril Torikov, likewise.”Her eyes exclaimed, “ah hah,” and her fan snapped shut, revealing a smile.“A friend of Asuka-san then,” she concluded.“More like her boyfriend,” Sparky’s voice broke through her satisfied smile.The owner of said voice poked her head in to the room as well. She too was bathed in green. You honestly wanted to tune it out but somehow you also wanted to know what was going on.“Sparky,” you asked, “Where you waiting around the corner just to say that?”“I was waiting for you to show up sooner or later,” she grimaced, “Didn’t think you’d beat me to her room so quickly.”You think Kongou was starting to blush. Her imagination seemed more vivid than Sparky’s and you hadn’t even started on the innuendo yet.“I need with you,” Sparky continued.>Step outside with Sparky>Talk to Kongou a bit more
>>33583657>>Step outside with SparkyBored you're dropping words like crazy. We did promise her an explanation, though.
>>33583637So there's the third fuck up.>Funny, the mirror reflected that you yourself had an aura as well.
>>33583657>Step outside with Sparky>“I need with you,” Sparky continued.Bored pls
>>33583657>Step outside with SparkySee what she wants.
>>33583657>Step outside with SparkyYeah, I think we really need to go back to our place and get Teacher's letter to find out wtf is going on. And as much as I would like to talk with Kongou, and ask her about the business, we do owe Sparky an explanation.
>>33583657>>Step outside with Sparky
>>33583701>>33583702No stops on the fuck up train.
>>33583657>Step outside with Sparky
I propose we use this Angel Fall thing to cause as much mayhem as possible.
We should probably call Kaur, ask why everyone is green.
>>33584391Not particularly hard. Got an archangel running around.
>>33584391Not really that helpful, for everyone other than the magicians, everything happens as normal, so we commit a crime, they know it's us anyway. It's literally the dullest thing that could happen to espers, because they just don't notice anything different. Heck all it seems to be doing for us is making things very green and hurting our eye-sight.
>>33584531We could try getting drunk. The green glow can't hurt us if we can't see straight.
You did owe her an explanation. Chatting with Kongou would have to wait. The two of you excused yourselves outside. You sat down on a bench down the hall. The look on her face wasn‘t accusatory but it was expectant.“So, how is she?” she ended the silence.“A few light burns, couple scratches,” you didn’t want to talk about that either.Asuka would probably heal completely with no scarring. A Level 4 merited such extraneous treatment. You didn’t mind that. It was what got her in the first place that did. You tried your best and it wasn’t your fault the shot you made did nothing. It didn’t stop you from feeling shit about it though.“She’s going to be alright.”You glumly nodded at that.“What were you doing?”Blunt as a sledgehammer.“I was doing a favour for Nunotaba,” you started, “I owed her one.”How were you going to explain this to Sparky? Was there even a good way to put it? Did you even care what she thought of you?“Well, I guess things got messy along the way,” you added quickly, “Which was unrelated to why I called you though. That was more of an accident.”“I see,” she really didn’t with how vague you were being, “But you know? You were right about one thing. There were about that many missiles heading back in to the atmosphere. I took your word seriously though aniki. We got them all.”“But you never got to confirm what was in them,” you finished for you.“No, but it’s not like we were going to take that chance,” she confirmed, “You were half right about the missiles already. Better safe than sorry. Like, I don’t want to ask, but what did Nunotaba ask you to do?”Should you tell her? Tell her about the things you’ve been doing? Criminal things?>A fuller disclosure>Be vague about it>Tell her nothing>As you like it (write-in)
>>33584683>>Be vague about itNo need to explain everything. Mainly the sentient part of the chemicaloid.
>>33584683>A fuller disclosureKyril did nothing wrong. He went in and liberated the oppressed.
>>33584683>Be vague about itliberate human test subject, around LO's age. Guess study REALLY wanted to keep her.
>>33584683>A fuller disclosureWe saved our second loli!
>>33584683>Be vague about it
>>33584683>A fuller disclosureWe are her Aniki. If she can't deal with it she doesn't deserve to call us that.P.S. >you finished for you.C-c-c Bored, c-c-c.
>>33584683>Be vague about it"She wanted us to steal a Chemicaloid, an artificially created human so that it wouldn't become a weapon of war. The company that had it retained a failsafe." I'd not tell her we're a band of thieves, and probably try and keep it as "Heroes of Justice". Which I guess it kind of was.
>>33584761It really was. You know, if you look at it from the right angle. And don't know the lion's share of the story.
>>33584683>Be vague about itDon't tell her about problem children or the whole we're professional thieves.
>>33584683"STUDY was doing weird stuff with artificial humans. Nunotaba wanted them to stop, so we stol- I mean liberated their vat-loli."
>>33584683>A fuller disclosure.Time to tell the truth.
>>33584683>A fuller disclosure
>>33584683>Be vague about itlets not tell her we're criminals
>>33584761The fact that we kinda let Nunotaba take off with the chemicaloid kinda dampens the heroic effect. Who knows what she'll do to it.
>>33584827But we are not.We are just the liberators of the oppressed goods.
>>33584845She'll raise it well. Into a fujoshi.
Is Index II shit?
>>33585563Alot of it, yeah. It covers what are basically the worst arcs of the series, so it can't be helped.
You were a lot of things. Completely honest was not one of them. There was no need for Sparky to know everything. She had an imagination so you’d just give some details and let her mind fill in the rest. Given that she was a Level 5 she must have really been book smart, but in other areas, she was still rather ignorant. You took advantage of that. Regardless of what you personally felt, Sparky did not need to know what kind of criminal enterprises you had been up to.“Nunotaba wanted me to help her rescue a test subject,” you started, “A child test subject to be precise.”“That can’t be legal,” she protested.You shrugged.“I don’t know, I didn’t ask,” you deflected, “Still, I owed her a favour and she needed my help. They were probably going to end up as a weapon or something. Didn’t think they’d bomb the city just to make sure no one else gets their hands on it.”“Why is it you’re always involved in that kind of stuff?” she asked.“What kind?”“You know, helping out friends, saving others, rescuing kids,” she spelled it out, “Like some kind of hero or something.”You put your hand on her head and looked her in the eye.“I’m not a hero Sparky,” you rubbed, “Trust me.”You were a lot of things. A hero was not one of them. You couldn’t let her believe that, not if she wanted to believe in you.“What I do,” you paused, “It’s not all fun and games.”“That is correct young man,” a voice interrupted.You were getting interrupted a lot today. The old woman that had caught your attention was elderly, greying, possibly older than Mum. She wore a suit, the kind that Aneue or lawyers wore. You didn’t think she was mere dorm supervisor.[1/2]
>>33585876“And you are?” Sparky didn’t take the interruption too well.“Someone who is not important to you Ms. Misaka Mikoto,” she answered calmly, “I am here for him.”She gestured to you.“For a private conversation.”Another one? Seriously? Still she was here for a reason and if her getup was to be believed, you think your luck has finally run out.>”You’ll never take me alive coppa’”>See what she has to say>Reschedule this for later
>>33585922>See what she has to saythis was gonna happen sooner or later

>>33585922>”You’ll never take me alive coppa’”
>>33585922>See what she has to sayWell if we're lucky it's Oyafune Monaka, and she's nice enough.
>>33585922>See what she has to say
>>33585922>”You’ll never take me alive coppa’”I hear France is great at this time of the year.
>>33585922>>See what she has to say
>>33586019Well, she's not completely nice. She doesn't seem too bothered by AC being a dick again and selling 'advanced' weapons to militaries trying to make themselves look big for exorbitant prices.(In reality they're amazing weapons by the rest of the world's standards but they're dogshit by AC standards. They just know no one can tell the difference. Jesus Christ AC are dicks.)
>>33585876> See what she has to sayIf AC wanted us dead we would have died a loooong time ago.
>>33586205This is probably the "Work for us and we're square, don't work for us and you're dead/in prison" moment.I mean, we did cause some property damage. I think they said the basis for Accelerator working for them is he caused 7 billion yen worth of property damage during his rampage against the Hound Dogs.
>>33586189There's nothing particularly dickish about, in my opinion. Seems like a valid business plan.
> See what she has to say
>>33586189Meh. If I recall one of the other members of the Board said she'd 'go as far as to attack another country if they caused a child to cry.' So all we have to do is fake some tears.>>33586243It's probably more wanting us to reimburse the cost of the anti-missile countermeasures.>>33586205And yeah at this point, considering the fact we're friends with one of AC's precious Level 5s, and Kamijou, and have influence over the Misaka network, we're firmly entrenched in Crowley's Keikaku.
>>33585922>>See what she has to sayThen when alone, grab her into a chokehold.>>>”You’ll never take me alive coppa’”
>>33586337Eh, they might make the other argument. They didn't actually force Accel to work for them. They just pointed out that if AC is destroyed, there's no place for Sisters or Espers in the rest of the world.
>>33586385That argument won't work too well with us, considering we can just go "Oh yeah, who stopped a bunch of idiots that wanted to kill all espers, whilst no-one else did anything". And "Oh who was it that gathered all the information to stop the Level Upper?" We're already running around the city saving people. Sure we make a bit of money on the side, but considering the Dark Side of AC, we're just a drop in the ocean.
>>33586501But we do make some waves.
>>33586372That's one of the more creative ways to kill ourselves I guess.
>>33586554We do have a reputation at least.
Sparky looked nervously between the two of you. You were familiar with that look. It was the kind that showed you understood that adults were going to talk about something that little kids were not meant to hear. With one last pat, you got up slowly.“I’ll be fine Sparky,” you told her.Then you left with the old woman. You didn’t give Sparky a chance to argue. The old lady led you to an office, belonging to a certain Dr. Cameron, A. It was empty but she took a seat behind the desk anyway. You sat down opposite, if only because the seat looked nice.“Let us cut to the chase,” she started, “You, young man, are in a lot of trouble.”“You’re not actually Dr. Cameron are you?” you asked.“No, so I would like this to be done before she returns and finds her office occupied.”She pulled out a tablet and handed it to you.“This is your rap sheet, as they say,” she spoke, “Hopefully most of it is accurate.”You skimmed down the list. You were up to four counts of murder according to the sheet.“Didn’t see jaywalking,” you joked.“Should we have?” she was having none of it, “The bottom line is that you could be put away for a very long time if you didn’t have some good legal counsel.”“You’re a lawyer,” you noted.“Insurance salesperson,” she corrected.“I’m not exactly swimming in cash,” you replied, “Not anymore anyway.”“Money isn’t a problem,” she assured, “You have certain skill set that are in high demand.”“That’s all?”“Ask away.”>Ask away (write-in)
>>33587400"So this is like blackmail, right?"
>>33587400Welp. Though if she pays kyril I don't think he would really care.
>>33587400"Let me guess - you want me to go steal some sort of artificially created little girl from shady organization #3."
>>33587400What is your angle?And why me, there are a lot of troublemakers in AC.
>>33587400>I appreciate an up-front extortionist. What do you want stolen?
>>33587400"Why? There's probably better thieves out there, and the fact Anti-Skill aren't bursting down doors to arrest me, means that those four counts are untenable, or more likely are of people that never existed. If you're coming to me with this it means you want something you don't want to admit exists, and that's going to be pricey."I guess if she's looking to hire us, we should try and be professional, make sure we have all the information before we make a decision.
>>33587400>How's the food in prison?It's not like breaking out is impossible.
>>33587400>Ask away (write-in)What should I call you?What kind of work are we talking here?One off job or a long term deal?Wire the money, 75% to the offshore account, 25% to the local ones.Contacts?Time frame?Supplies?Just four? (I thought we killed more than that?)try to glean if she's aware of THIEF
>>33587573>AC>Caring about the legal systemMy sides.I don't think they even have courts.
>>33587491I dunno, are there more of those? We did LO and the Chemicaloid.
>>33587644Um...Fraulein? Sort of. AC already has her contained though. Also she'll murder the shit out of us, so let's not get near her.Also I guess that clone of Dolly.
>>33587400>that picCalled it. It is the old lady board of directors member.I'm just wondering what the hell she wants with us. She doesn't show up in canon until that thing with Terra of the Left.
>>33587573Ack, phrased that wrong, the people we 'Murdered' are more than likely members of Hound-dogs or ITEM or some other dark-side group. And by that it means if they were ever going to do anything about their deaths, they'd have to reveal what they were doing, so they won't ever be acted upon.Generally if they're having to try and blackmail us, it means they can't act upon something with their own agents. And no blackmail would really stick on us.
>>33587582You don't tell people about your offshore accounts. That defeats the entire purpose of having them.
>>33587400ask if we can keep the tablet?
>>33587699They really don't have to account to anybody about anything. AC doesn't have a charge for treason, but they just threw Awaki's comrades in the Reformatory anyways, because who's going to stop them?We live in a Totalitarian state man.
>>33587400A question for Bored: What's the full Rap Sheet?
>>33587733I'm under the assumption they know everything and they're cool with us as long as we don't steal from / kill the wrong person/group and do what they tell us to do (from now on)
>>33587808I thought you guys were keeping track of that.
>>33587869>players>keeping track of thingsBored, we can barely keep track of our own dicks
>>33587577As long as we have outside help, should be possible. I mean the Reformatory is a pretty great set-up to contain Espers, but nothing's perfect. That's proven by the place also apparently having the highest casualty rate among Anti-Skill professions. Getting out of the city limits would be, uh, harder. And then surviving after that. But one step at a time I guess. Go with the flow and all that.
Who did we kill anyway? I know that Big-Spider prick, but the other guy took the rap for that. So who are the 4 people that are listed here? The merc squad who's incendiary grenade we returned or was it something else?>>33587793Except we actually have friends. We have people that will kick up a fuss if we suddenly disappear. We have a major influence on the Misaka network, a friendship with a Level 5, a homeroom teacher who would question where we've gone, and Aneue, who could probably murder her way through the Board of Directors just to tell us off for hurting one of her students.
>>33587869speeding (2 counts)manslaughter (dunno the number, big spider)Arsonsecond degree murder(s) (the rest of big spider)Breaking and Entering (multiple times)child abduction (2 counts)Grand Larceny (4 counts)Illegal gamblingunderage drinking(AC high score)evading arrest (that high speed chase)Assault(s)Unlicensed firearm possession pretty sure I'm missing stuff
>>33587918It really wouldn't help. All of those people are at the mercy of AC, not the other way around. I mean just look at Hamazura and Accelerator. It took them 10-12 novels to stop being under the heel of AC, and all their effort was reversed off-screen the fucking novel directly after they did that.AC is a Mary Sue basically.
>>33588099So basically AC owns our ass until the end of time now. Great.
>>33588158its like that for pretty much everybody though
>>33588033>child abduction (2 counts)Hey now, that's completly not true. We rescued them. And one of them is our little sister they don't need to know that part happened after said rescue
>>33588099Then let's start a Civil War, tell Accel that they're planing to ban all coffee from AC, Tell Mugino to continue being insane in the membrane, and burn it all down! Anyway I have to consider at this point that we're important to Crowley, which means they won't lock us up anyway.
>>33588158>>33588188Yeah, it's basically the main Science conflict in the series. Everyone is pissed at AC for being gigantic dicks, and also powerless to stop it.Every Science Side Arc goes "AC are being dicks again, but oh well, that's normal, better put a band-aid on the issue since I don't want to die to some crazy tech."Also apparently AC existing is the only thing standing between the Kiharas and experimenting on the entire world, so that sucks.
>>33588245Crowley doesn't give a shit about us since he has a back-up plan for the back-up plan of his back-up plan.He simply doesn't care about most of the stuff that's happening in the city as long as he can keep floating in his orange jar and keep working on his keikaku.Nothing we do will bother him and if it did, he'd just decapitate Kyril with his fucking nanomachines,
>>33588309Eh, we don't know Keikaku. Plus he can still have preferences. Kakine is Accelerator's back-up for example, but he'd still rather keep Accelerator alive.
>>33588033SpeedingManslaughter2nd degree murder1st degree murderGrand larcenyUnderage drinkingEvading arrestUnlicensed firearm possisionArson.conspiracy to commit property damageconspiracy to commit grand larcenyLike technically the women is off on our murder count. We got about 5 from shooting big spider, One from shooting that poor bastard and I think a couple from the dudes at the bank though that would be self defense.
>>33588353Alot of Hound Dogs are also Anti-Skill that got mixed up in bad shit, so they can probably get us for murdering a cop I guess.
>>33588309Pretty sure Crowley doesn't actually use those nanomacines like that. He is pretty much omniscient in the city though. if he could use the machines like that then Mugino would have a dead husbando right now.
>>33588353would the explosives fall under Unlicensed firearm possession?I guess property damage should be added too
>>33588395That probably wouldn't work even here. Mainly because no one gives a shit about hound dogs. Not even hound dogs give a shit about them.
I feel like I missed something big. When did Kyril kill someone on the Hound Dogs?
>>33588332It's not like Accel can do anything to him or otherwise ruin his plan either way. And if Accel himself is in heading towards his inevitable death? Crowley will save him in a moment's notice.There is no way to beat this guy.
>>33588353Kryil is a real good guy.
I'm pretty sure what Kyril did with the wheelchair also counts as Reckless Endangerment.
>>33588429>ExplosivesForgot about that. That in itself is a major crime. Not sure about japanese law but USA wise that is like you're in jail for the next 10 years or more. There is also buying shit from a smuggler and arms dealer. Which is also some heavy shit.
>>33588400Nah, remember when Birdway mocked him? He showed there he has the ability to just chop off the head of anyone in the city he doesn't like through some unspecified technological mean.Of course then Birdway made fun of him for not killing her and showing that his Keikaku had gone off-course. Apparently he was just trolling everyone though if NT 10 is any consideration.Hamazura is still alive because he's Super Hamazury.
>>33588400If Hamazura was anything other than a minor annoyance, Mugino would have a dead husbando either way. Did you forget how Fiamma got wasted?
>>33588495AC isn't under Japanese jurisdiction, but I can't imagine AC looks too kindly on that either.
>>33588500Pretty sure that's more just Crowley being bullshit with magic. Because in general Crowley had all the reason to just kill the bastard if he wasn't so terrified his plan would break.
>>33588440When they were trying to kill Nunotaba, we threw their grenades back at them.And as for Crowley's Keikaku, it's not perfect. He had to actually interfere with Misaka's mother because it would have derailed his plans, and Hamazura confuses the fuck out of him. His plan isn't flawless, and he also wants to expedite it anyway they can, so obviously Kyril's actions are part of it.
I feel like we're freaking out too much. I mean this was going to happen eventually. We were trying to be criminals in AC of all places.It's fine if you're a criminal though as long as you're an 'official' criminal.

>>33588453We could ask Aiwass to help us really nicely.
>>33588696I think you forgot destruction of public and private property, as well as arguably assault, possibly battery.
>>33588726>AiwassCan already see kyril's reaction to this. "What the fuck is this? What the fuck are you? Why the fuck does this exist? What the hell is going on?" Though the entire conversation.
>>33588669I agree with you. They can't really enforce any of this stuff. It's all to give us yet another plot hook, which frankly we already have too much of. Realisticly we should try and keep a low profile for a bit, and they'll get bored and move on to something else.We've not gone on a date with Asuka for a while, we should do that instead.>>33588777>Aiwass>Screw you guys, I'm going home!
>>33588696There's also bodily harm or aggravated battery if we consider our fights with certain Skill-Out members.Also lots of smaller charges that go hand in hand with the big charges already listed here.
>>33588804We were just talking last thread about spending some time with Teacher and grinding XP, actually.
>>33588804Ah, that's not what I meant. I just meant this was inevitable if we kept fucking around with stuff.The other guys are right, AC's boot is on our necks. Nothing wrong with that, the plot can be fun.
“You want me to steal another artificially created little girl from a company without too many scruples,” you joked again.“If that is your preference I suppose we could find such a thing for you,” she grinned this time.“So why me?” you were curious, “There’s plenty of other thieves in this city. What makes me so special?”“Because you have been flagged,” she said simply, “We have need of you, and your skills, for all the good it can do.”The way she said ‘good’, you weren’t sure if it was because she didn’t believe you could do good, or that doing good was at all possible. Rather you noticed how she seemed to treat the subject with a bit of unpleasantness, as if it were objectionable to her.“So I do some ‘good’,” you did the airquotes thing, “But for who?”“Officially? No one,” she answered, “and it will stay that way.”“And the pay? Can’t imagine the food in prison being any good.”“A little peace of mind is worth more than money, don’t you think? Just imagine not having to worry about your little sister, Mishka or was it Minori? Or perhaps about your friends?”“Is that a threat?” you didn’t like the way she was speaking.“Of course not, it was not my intention at all because this isn’t about them,” she seemed apologetic about that, “This is about you. Whatever you do in service of the city will ensure protection for them, in addition to yourself. I may not be the biggest fish in the pond, even now acting as a middle man, but I can assure you that everything will be taken care of if so choose.”She let it sink in.“So, it’s just for me?” you confirmed.“Just for you. An exclusivity contract between the both of us if you will.”>”When do I start?”>”I hope this is a standing offer.”>”I’ll take my chances.”
>>33588954>”When do I start?”so there's no money?
>>33588954>>”When do I start?”Also, can you help out Kyouko? She needs...schooling.
>>33588954>”When do I start?”Oh well.
>>33588954Eh. Oyafune can't actually protect us from the other Directors when it comes down to it, she's the weakest of the bunch.We don't know that though, and god knows what the rest of AC will do to us if we have no protection at all, so>When do I start?
>>33588954>”I hope this is a standing offer.”I hope she wont think less of us for not jumping into anything.
>>33588954>I hope this is a standing offerCome back when we have a chance to ponder who we'd REALLY be working for.
>>33589026Does she even want schooling, exactly?
>>33588954>”When do I start?”I don't know about you guys, but I'd like AC to back us up even if it's minimal.>>33589013We probably have enough money for now and AC's higher-ups as friends (or at least not as enemies) is extremely valuable.
>>33588954>”When do I start?”Personally I'd go with "Whatever, I've stopped missiles, meant to kill all the espers in the city, and sorted out that whole Level Upper bullshit. I've already done more good for this city than most of the 2.4 million people will ever do. But fine, I'll work for you, because you're self-righteousness is toxic, and you are threatening me."Accept it but also be bitter about it. This bitch is blackmailing us, despite the fact we've saved the city, she doesn't deserve any respect.
>>33588954>”When do I start?”I want my Payday, too.
>>33589105Technically having her as an ally probably worsens our position overall. She tries to do good in the city and curb the other Director's psychotic tendencies, which pisses them off. And unfortunately she has no actual authority or power, so the second they want her to stop, she stops. Whenever she becomes firm on an issue, they just point at her daughter and wink, and she backs off.But we're a good guy (kind of), so in that sense she's the best person to work for.
>>33588954>”When do I start?”I'm all for some pro bono work if it means we won't get shot in the back.
>>33589196>But we're a good guyKyril is a good guy in some senses I suppose.
>>33589196>>33589233at the very least, a lesser evil
>>33589196Well, I didn't talk about her as an ally, because she said she was acting as a middle man, so we probably got a green light from more people than her.
>>33589233We are a good guy. I mean sure more Chaotic Good, than anything else, but our criminal actions have been in self-defense, or for the greater good. We stole shit, but to get info on something that was hurting thousands of people, we hurt members of a criminal gang, to protect us and our friends, we stole from an illegal gambling ring, not honest people, and we stole children, to stop them being used for horrible deeds. We are a Hero, and should be more proud of it. Sure we're more Batman than Superman, but we're still a good guy.
>>33589376Err... There have been plenty of times where we just stole shit for the money rather than any sense of greater good.
>>33589376Well, we've also killed people. But all the people we've killed tend to have hilariously short lifespans on average, so it's probably fine.If we didn't kill them, someone else was going to.
>>33589376yeah but we went overkill on Big Spider and let that guy take the fall for it.I reckon we're closer to Chaotic NeturalAsuka is Chaotic Evil but we love her anyways
>”When do I start?”
>>33589376Kyril was mostly into it for the Violence and money though. Not like he wakes up one morning and decides to go save lolis for no reason. So he does have a selfish motivation for most of this.Really the key thing that stops him from being pretty evil is he isn't AC blatant about it and doesn't sell people.
>>33589402Uh which? Aside from the Gambling ring i'm struggling. The first heist was the data on Level upper. The second was done for the help from Nunotoba, and also gave her the information on Level Shift. The third was the illegal fighting, which yeah was selfish, but we did steal from criminals, so it's fine. The fourth was to save LO, and the fifth was to save the Chemicaloid. How many more have we run?
>>33589376Heroes don't go around killing people and burning buildings down.Speaking of which we should do that more often.
>>33589526This simple image I think explains it.
>>33589563Accidents happen, and I'm certain Batman's burnt down a few buildings inadvertently. Look I'm not saying we're a saint, or perfect, or Touma. But we're a good person and we do good things, to negate that entirely is to do a dishonour to our character.
>>33589563As long as we're levelling up in the process, there's no reason not to. For our character, at least.
>>33589529>but we did steal from criminalsThat doesn't really make it any less stealing illegal funds because he can. He just tends to go for people who fight back a lot.
>>33589563I was wondering when pyroanon would post again. Most threads have one post suggesting that we burn some shit
>>33589620>BatmanKyril is like the opposite of batman. He has flat out said he mostly does it for fun. While batman is mainly in it for vengeance and being crazy. >>33589619Yeah pretty much. I wouldn't say he is like average dark side member tier but he is in the dark side of AC and his motivations aren't always clean. Which works perfectly fine with me.
>>33589729Kyril is like 2 parts Robin Hood, 1 part watered-down Joker, 1 part [I can't think of some dude who just likes foightan and drinkin' even though I should be able to]
>>33589729If what that human trafficking guy said in 19 is any indication, your average dark side member is a slave-owning, murdering, possibly rapist bastard.We're basically around Hamazura in terms of badness I guess. Though his goals were a bit more idealistic before AC killed his Nelson Mandela.
>>33589729I said Batman mostly because he knows that sometimes you have to do bad things, to do the right thing.I mean sure, we do it for the fun. But we're also super morallistic, we chose to take LO ourselves in order to ensure she's safe. We chose to save the Chemicaloid, and leave her with Nunotoba, rather than just sell her off. We chose to rob from the gamblers, because we knew they were criminals, rather than some bank. >>33589796>2 parts Robin Hood, 1 part Hal Jordan, 1 part Generic Dwarf.
>>33589832>Though his goals were a bit more idealistic before AC killed his Nelson Mandela.My sides have just won the Venus Probe Contest.
>>33589832>We're basically around Hamazura in terms of badness I guess.Pretty much. I think Kyril would go as far as he felt he needed to survive like when he shot the tied up guy. But if given an option he will avoid anything with slavery, Or meaningless deaths. Though I wonder what his opinions on Organ legging would be? Assuming they where already dead.
>>33590025>Assuming they where already dead."This is macabre and fucking creepy and why is this even a thing when AC can make artificial organs?"
>>33590025It's not like Hamazura is all that nice a guy anyways.>“Mugino, you restrain Takitsubo. I’m about to do something that’s going to provoke her a bit.”>“What are you…?”>The woman in the helmet and suit started to say something, but Hamazura did not give her a response.>Instead of words, he pulled out his handgun and suddenly shot her in the right elbow and right knee.>Two dry gunshots rang out and the woman’s screams continued afterwards. Hamazura’s expression did not change. He grabbed the collar of her suit with both hands and dragged her along the snow.>“…There is a slight cave about 100 meters ahead. We’ll finish this there.” His voice was completely flat and free of emotion. “An Academy City pursuit unit will be here soon. I need to get our means of negotiation before then, so I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen. I’m after the Parameter List. You can output it on paper or give me a password so I can access the data on the network, I don’t care which. Just tell me everything you know. I’ll make sure to go far enough that you’ll be telling me before you realize it.”>“E-ee!”>“Humans really are scary.”>Hamazura brought his mouth up next to the helmet and spoke in a quiet voice so Takitsubo and Mugino could not hear.>His voice was completely flat.>“As long as they can make the excuse that they are doing something to protect those they care about, they can do any kind of cruel thing. That’s how I see it anyway. I’ll be showing you just how cruel humans can be.”
>>33590082Other nations might not be able to and given all the people who somehow winds up getting shot it could make a good supplementary income. It's like he can't walk 5 feet sometimes without thugs tripping over themselves trying to pick a fight or two.
>>33590142Yeah, but then you got to get the organs out of the city and that's just a pain in the ass.Also it is kind of morally...out there.
“You’re awfully nice for someone who’s blackmailing me to work for,” you still had no idea who you were working for, “for the city, I guess.”“If it were up to me, you wouldn’t need to be working at all,” she frowned, “Even so, I would prefer you under my exclusive employ but I alone cannot make that decision.”“Right, so when do I start?”“The soonest is perhaps when summer break end but who knows,” she got up, “Keep the tablet. It’ll log you on to a message board. Look out for a post signed XYZ. That’ll be your cue to reply.”Then she left, leaving you again with the sense that you’ve just signed on to more shit without actually knowing what was going on. Hell you weren’t even sure she was going to hold up your end of the bargain. The only bright side was that you really didn’t have anything to lose, except your time but you had plenty of that anyway.Your return to Asuka’s hospital room was met mostly with silence. Sparky was there waiting and Kongou looked to be deep in thought beside her sleeping friend.“Who was she?” Sparky eventually enquired.“Would you actually believe it?” you returned.“Just tell me,” she said evenly.“Insurance salesperson,” you answered in kind.“Indeed?” Kongou’s interested was now piqued, “What possible reason would such a person have to accost you?”“I dunno, maybe I just come here too often?” you guessed.“Yeah, he was in a wheelchair for a week or two,” Sparky confirmed, “You also got burned that one time.”“I did, lost my eyebrows and everything,” you smiled now.“Then it must be fortuitous that they have grown back fast?” Kongou seemed unsure of her statement.[1/2]
>>33590193How so? They're dead; they sure as hell aint gonna need 'em anymore.
>>33590193Not like they need it anymore and it's kind of worse they got killed to start with. Though I"m not serious on this. I just kind of think it's an amusing question given how Kyril seems to have some absurdly high tolerance to morbid shit.
>>33590193Yeah, it's already pretty difficult to get out of the city if you're an esper, you're tagged with nano-machines so AC can find you anywhere in the world to protect your DNA. The magicians only got in because Sparky caused a massive black-out and Crowley wanted them in. As for the organ thing, I don't think it's something Kyril would even consider. Hes not a psychopath, and felt genuinely anguished by the thought that he'd killed someone, and his reaction to letting Asuka get hurt. As I've been constantly saying, he's generally a good guy.
>>33590253At least you were chatting about lighter topics now but you couldn’t stay forever. It was still morning. The grumbling of your stomach reminded you that you hadn’t had breakfast yet. Maybe you should get some, and for Asuka as well, when she woke up. Other business you wanted to finish included helping Nakazawa at his ACRE Assembly project, as well looking in to why everyone was glowing green basically.>Breakfast>Nakazawa>Greens
>>33590347>>GreensThis shit is freaky.
>>33590317Also Sparky created stormclouds over the whole region in her fight with Touma, so AC's satellites had a harder time.
>>33590347>BreakfastMost important meal of the day and all that.
>>33590347>BreakfastCant do anything on an empty stomach!
>>33590317>psychopathI like to call it morally flexible in approach.> felt genuinely anguished by the thought that he'd killed someoneNot so much anymore after the first time.>he's generally a good guy.Very much so. He looks after his friends and tends to tell most hardcore psychopaths to fuck off. 10/10 would bro with.
>>33590347>GreensMy favorite color.P.S. What green? Like forest green or lime or aqua or chrome? I need to know, for reasons.
>>33590347>BreakfastAsuka needs food. Plus it's not like there's anything we can do about the green shit. Hell it's strange we can even notice something is wrong in the first place honestly.
>>33590347>BreakfastWe'll need Teacher's letter to talk to him about the green shit anyway, so we might as well go home. And we should probably pick up LO.
>>33590400I mean, it really dependsBeing "sane" in AC tends to have much more flexible bounds when everyone's superpowers literally run on insanity, and the city is run by a family of genetically crazy scientists. As long as you're not dancing in someone's entrails, you're sane enough.
>>33590347>GreensKaur and Kyouko must be so confused
Changing my vote >>33590405 to this >>33590416. It's a good plan.
>>33590347>>BreakfastAsk Sparky how was spending some time with LO went.
>>33590445>As long as you're not dancing in someone's entrailsUnderstatement of the century here.
Do we still sound the same to those afflicted by Angel Fall?
>>33590967No, but no one affected can notice. Any pictures and such of us are different now as well, but no one can tell.Also we're affected as well, so there's that.
>>33591059It's not as clear as it could be, but as far as I can tell we can actually see through it pretty okay.
>>33591122It's kinda odd. Apparently we're seeing that the mana is trying to make people look different. But people's bodies are actually switched, it's not an illusion.Kinda weird, I dunno
As somebody who doesn't know what this Angel Fall thing is, could you guys give an explanation?
We should try and hang out with the people in our address book when not dealing with a job. It's messed up that we only call them when we need something.
>>33591434Guy accidentally sets up a massive magical array for the spell "Angel Fall." Basically, it causes an angel to fall down to humanity so that the human who casts it can rise up and become an angel. As a side-effect, everybody on the planet gets body-swapped, but they don't even notice.There's a serial killer involved, Touma's dad, and the angel in question, as well a nuke aimed at half the planet, a magical array made out of stars, and Jesus as a sword saint.
>>33591434Humans can't become Angels because Heaven is full. All the positions for Angels were taken at the moment of creation.So in order for a human to become an Angel, they first have to drag one down to Earth to make room. In order to do that, the spell shifts everyone's identities around. The idea is that the Angel will be shifted down to Earth, and the caster will be shifted up to Heaven since there will be an imbalance.This actually can't normally happen, and apparently it only can because all the True Names of the Angels were switched around due to a distortion. Fiamma fixes it later.
>>33591434wizards, no sense of right and wrong
>>33591497>Jesus as a sword saint.My God is an awesome God
You weren’t apologetic or embarrassed that you were hungry. Hell you didn’t even remember dinner last night. Thus you trudged down to the cafeteria which, thankfully, was now open. Sparky had decided to accompany you. It seems that she was hungry as well. As far as hospital food, it was rather forgettable, save the clear soup that accompanied your dish of chicken rice. You even caught Heaven Canceller passing through with a mug of black coffee. Did the man ever sleep, you wondered.You had appropriated a brioche with lingonberry jam, butter, plain yoghurt with raisins and nuts for garnish. As for beverage, nothing was better to wash that down than apple juice. However, as you approached Asuka’s room, you had noticed that there was a conversation going on. Two females were talking, one you made out as Kongou but the other one you didn’t know. Sparky shrugged as you gave her a questioning look. Nothing doing, you opened the door.Kongou was speaking to a woman with short brown hair and who felt significantly older than everyone in the room. In the corner, leaning against the wall, was a man in unkempt black hair and an equally black suit. In his mouth was an unlit cigarette. Unlike everyone else though. His aura was a mix of colours. A bold green almost overshadowed the yellow that silhouetted his body. Along his person were criss-crossing red lines, as well as yellow silhouettes of what looked like a hand gun and several magazines.“Oh, there he is now,” Kongou pointed with her fan.The woman’s gaze snapped in your direction as you set down the tray of food items.“Hmmm, he’s got good eyes, I like him already,” she mused in sing song.Before you got to introduce yourself however, the man had approached near silently, staring deeply in to your eyes. He raised his hands he grabbed your face, cupping it as his bewildered look intensified.[1/2]
>>33591497>>33591520Gabriel is the cutest angel of all.
>>33591678IIRC, there's also a russian loli in bondage gear for no particular reason other than to be adamantly charming.
>>33591688“Uncle, please do not kill my boyfriend,” Asuka’s voice carried softly across the room, “It is not his fault.”He gave one look at her before glaring at you once more and dragging his thumbs across your brows. It was a searing pain that you dared not vocalise. He was erasing them! No, not your eyebrows, they just grew back, you thought in despair before he let you go.“Shamu, how many times have I told you to stop scaring away all her boyfriends?” the woman scolded.He only snorted lightly before returning to his stop at the wall, cigarette rising tumbling about between his lips.“Hi, hi,” the woman turned to both you and Sparky, “Kudou Junkoです! I’m Asuka-chan’s mother. Nice to meet ya.”She waved energetically.>How do you greet Asuka’s mother?
>>33591718Cautiously. This man is dangerous, to be sure. Not that we have any room to talk, but still, he is a mage, and damn if we don't know about mages.
>>33591718>"What's up yo, I see where Asuka got her chest funnions."Ah, but really>Politely, in general.
>>33591718Nooooooooooo! One day they wont grow back!
>>33591718Shed a manly tear for the eyebros.Greet her with respect. And the man also. Let's not be intimidated.
>>33591718Ask her if she wants anything from the cafeteria. Also check if we still have the magic eyes after that brow scourging.
>>33591718uhhh..Hi. I'm Kyril.
>>33591718But yeah, let's not tell them our last name.
Ah, aha, ahahahaha. I just totally noticed. You didn't do the usual "You are Kyril" in the first post. Pretty big hint about Angel Fall happening. Unless that was another mistake.
>>33591718>Respectful, but very much unafraid.
>>33591907Yes. That definitely explains why everyone is acting the same. Especially why they're still acting as if he's in the same body.
>>33592019Clearly they are all plotting against us. We should end them before they can strike.
>>33591878Do we have an in-character reason not to? I know we have a great meta reason.
>>33592019Infected people don't notice if you switched or not, so it doesn't really help us figure out if we're infected or not.
>>33592070Nope, and they probably already know.
We're this guy aren't we?
>>33592463Probably, we just took his eyebrows off.
>>33592463What would his esper power be?
>>33592616He is probably a Magic God, or just himself... his powers are probably something like Touma's.
>>33592616Level 5 Punch.
You greeted her with respect and without fear. Getting off on the wrong foot needlessly wasn’t going to do you any favours. Especially since it did wonders to your relationship with Lord Kudou. Lady Kudou didn’t seem especially antagonistic.“Kyril Torikov, a pleasure to make your acquaintance,” you bowed low.“Ooh ho, he’s polite too,” she clapped, “Honestly I don’t see where Tomo-kun keeps complaining about.”“Maybe because he got her hurt?” the uncle suggested and offered his name, “Fujimoto Shiro.”“It is not his fault uncle,” Asuka repeated weakly from her bed.“See? If Asuka-chan says it’s fine then it’s fine,” Lady Kudou said, “Until she does, no stringing him up by the balls.”“Hmph,” he turned to look out the window.“Uh, I’m Misaka Mikoto?” Sparky dared to brave the gap in conversation.“Mikoto-chan huh? That’s a nice name,” she got up and grabbed Sparky.Lady Kudou easily lifted her up above her head.“She’s a bit light for a rival though.”“Mother, please stop manhandling the Railgun,” Asuka croaked once more.You hurriedly gave her something to drink as her uncle tracked your every move. Lady Kudou found it amusing. The young but powerful electromaster’s protests didn’t seem to register.“Right I shouldn’t touch your rival then,” she put Sparky down.“For the last time mother, she’s not my rival, that’s Wanko-chan,” Asuka corrected.“So she’s your beloved and cute junior?”“No mother,” Asuka seemed exasperated, “On second thought, she is my junior. Beloved and cute? Arguable.”“So you have managed to lead a healthy, normal, middle school life,” Lady Kudou was unusually pleased.[1/2]
>>33593045>“So you have managed to lead a healthy, normal, middle school life,” Lady Kudou was unusually pleased.Hahahahahahhah.No.
>>33593045“She’s in a hospital for several burns and lacerations,” Fujimoto chopped her forehead with a knife hand, “What part of that is normal?”“B-b-b-but Tomo-kun used to get hurt all the time,” she complained.“That’s because you dragged him along on your stupid adventures,” he chopped her again.“Ow, Asuka-chan, Shamu-shamu is being a meanie.”Asuka paid her no mind. You had half a mind to do so as well.“Well I guess we have to forget about marriage now,” she bounced back with an outrageous statement all the same.Wait, what?>Enquire further>Ignore her, feed Asuka
>>33593107>Enquire furtherI hate to pry but....
>>33593107>>Ignore her, feed AsukaThis is bait.
>>33593107>Ignore her, feed AsukaGirlfriend takes priority over lunatics.
>>33593107>>Ignore her, feed AsukaIt's just an arranged marriage getting cancelled. Pay it no mind.
>>33593107>Ignore her, feed AsukaThis time we will succeed for she is weakened.
>>33593107>Ignore her, feed Asuka
I feel that everyone in the room is entirely to sober.
>>33593574I guess we could do something stupid.
>>33593591Eat her face aye.
>>33593591According to the padlet we still have 2kg of plastic explosives to play around with. I'm sure there is some fun to be had there.
>>33593669That's not nearly enough to make a chair
“Is she always like this?” you asked your girlfriend as you sat down with her breakfast.“I honestly have trouble determining what goes on in her head half the time,” Asuka replied, “Is that a brioche?”“Uh huh, say ‘ah’.”“Only this once then dear,” she pouted, “and only because I do not wish to exert myself.”“As you say.”If you were paying attention you’d notice how the rest of the room had gone deathly silent. Funnily enough it was Kongou, who had snapped her fan open again. Once again if you were paying attention you’d notice how she was whispering conspiratorially with Sparky. You think their conversation went something like,“Are they always this intimate?” Kongou was curious.“I used to think they do it on purpose,” Sparky answered, “But now I know they’re too lovey-dovey to pay attention.”“Oh my.”Likewise Fujimoto and Lady Kudou would say something like,“Oooh, he’s really put on the moves,” she would say, “So cute.”“I am kill him so hard he’ll die from it,” the uncle disagreed.Of course, they were probably too busy gawking at a pair of shameless lovebirds. You got to feed Asuka. That’s a win in your book. Sadly it’s probably going to be the highlight of your day.Episode 54 End. I resume on Thursday if possible.https://twitter.com/BoredofDirectorLong day. I’ll try not to drag it on. Did I really forget the “you are” though? When writefag and /tg/ meet, the story begins.Sleepy times now.
>>33593907Silly Sparky, it's only on purpose when Shirai is around.
>>33593907>“I am kill him so hard he’ll die from it,” the uncle disagreed.He's so mad he cant even proper English/Japanese.Thanks for running Bored!
>>33593907Night Bored, good session today!

>>33593907>Did I really forget the "you are" though?See! I was right, it was on purpose!
>>33594225That's what he wants you to think.
Fujimoto Shiro is the one who ended up killing Kyril's mother right?
>>33594285I think so
>>33594430I forget though, did Mama Torikov die and stay dead?
