You try to speak. It's...it's an ordeal, with bile and blood and something foul clogging your throat, filling your mouth. After a couple of false starts where you end up hacking and coughing and retching another wave of half-clotted, acidic blood down your front - painting your costume a lovely shade of lumpy, diseased crimson that spoke of some sick, inner corruption - you finally manage to drag a breath deep enough to actually speak."...I'm not...going to kill you..." You rasp at the pink-haired demon mere inches from your face, your voice sounding weaker and more desperate than you've ever heard it before. "Homura-chan, you're throwing up chunks of your liver." Pinky giggles. "You can't even kill a double of whisky in the state you're in."You shake your head, gritting your teeth as the motion causes you enough nausea to induce another wave of blood puke. You force it back down, just as you force yourself to speak again. "I'm...going to help...you."
>>34340893Silence. Pure, stark, deafening silence rings in your ears, choking off all other sound as Pinky's smile vanishes like the last light of a late sunset."'Help' me?" The corrupted goddess in the cheerleader outfit whispers. "I don't believe I heard you correctly, Homura-chan. You want...you want to 'help' me? Did I get that right?"Dragging yourself up against the back rest of your throne, you force a nod in reply. Pinky's eyes go wide here, the disgusting-glossy orbs of pure black rolling in their sockets, before focusing on you."That makes it all right, then, doesn't it?" She smiles, giggling once more as she pulls back away from you to pace back and forth, gesticulating with her blood-encrusted hands. "Homura-chan's going to help me, after all! Help implies a positive, beneficial action for all parties concerned, heading towards a favorable goal!" She stops momentarily to flash you a toothy grin, before pacing again."Why, I should reward Homura-chan for being so thoughtful and so kind, seeing as she's going out of her way to help me! It's not like things turned out really horribly, super terribly wrong when Homura-chan tried it the last time, right?" She stops again, eyes wide as she smacks a fist to her palm, sudden revelation dawning on her features. "Oh, wait! Silly me - they totally did!"You open your mouth to reply - to explain about what you plan to do, to tell her what you know - but before you could even draw in a single breath, Pinky is already in your face, eyes blazing with the sick unlight of souls being tortured for eternity. Roaring her hate out at you, her breath filling your nostrils of the chokingly-sweet scent of decaying carrion.[1/2]
>>34340899"YOU WANTING TO FUCKING HELP TURNED ME INTO THIS, HOMURA-CHAN!" The insane goddess snarls as she grabs you by the shoulders, her thumbs stabbing deep into your flesh, twisting, turning, digging right into your chest, subjecting you to yet another body-wracking, teeth-cracking world of fresh agony. "YOU WANTING TO HELP FUCKED EVERYTHING UP FOR EVERYONE! MAMI! KYOKO! SAYAKA-CHAN! AND NOW YOU WANT TO HELP ME AGAIN?!" She cackles here. "YOU REALLY DON'T WANT ANYONE BUT YOU TO BE HAPPY, DO YOU, HOMURA-CHAN!"N-no, no, that's not true, that's--You can't bite it back anymore. You scream as Pinky digs her fingers in deeper, her claws grinding against bone now."You couldn't leave things well enough alone, Homura-chan. You didn't listen to anyone, you didn't give a single FUCK about the consequences." Pinky growls this at you with all the menace of a leopard moments from tearing your throat out with one snap of its jaws. "And you called it 'helping' me. You called it 'rescuing' me. You didn't care. You just thought about yourself."She pulls away from you again, her clawed fingers coming away with a fresh coat of blood. Your blood. "I want...I want you to think very carefully about what you just said, Homura-chan. I want you to think about what you're planning to do, whatever those things inside that gun of yours told you." Pinky turns her back on you, and you can see from her heaving shoulders that she's trying to calm herself down, each deep breath whistling through her mouthful of sharp teeth. "Because if I find out that you're screwing up things for everyone again..."Pinky glances towards Midori, the Callidus frozen in the middle of her eating. Her mouth open to receive a spoonful of food hanging in midair."...Everyone you love dies slow. And you'll be watching, right up to the moment where I kill you for real."[2/3]
>>34340915And, once again, some inner switch inside her flips - and the eldritchian horror winks at you, all smiles again. "So, if you don't want that to happen, just do as I say and keep getting those Golden Weapons! The next one's like, really really close, you know! So close I can just taste it!" She poses here, throwing up double peace signs and letting her blood-pinked tongue loll out of her mouth. "Like this, get it? Ahahaha~!"Your only viable response as of this moment is to wheeze a pink mist from your punctured lungs. "Oops! Homura-chan can't talk if she can't breathe, can she?" Pinky hops forward onto your lap again, before slamming the heel of her hand into your sternum. Something shifts inside your chest, something worm-like and barbed - and with a burning stab of agony, the holes she'd poked into your chest fills out and disappears, as if they never were. "Now, does Homura-chan have any questions to ask or even confessions she'd like to make before I leave? I promise I won't get mad! Pinky Promiiiise!"...How do you react?Tell her about the Transcendent One. She has to know. If she hurts you again, you don't give a shit, she HAS to know."Can I save Oriko?"No more. Just...keep quiet. You don't want to risk her getting angry again.

Don't mind me, just posting Based Trash's depiction of previous thread.Seriously why does this quest have so many delicious artists.

>>34341012Yours tears soothe me. Cry some more please?
At the very least, if pic related happens, That Fucking Cat is shooting her self. >>34341002Because Decu seduced us all with his gains or something like that. Anyways, I'm out. Wandering around Montreal or something.
>>34340930>[x]No more. Just...keep quiet. You don't want to risk her getting angry again.Seriously guys, talking is just going to keep making things worse.
>>34341012I was hoping we could get through a thread without being retarded, apparently not.Time for me to leave and read this trainwreck in the archives
>>34340930>[X]"Can I save Oriko?"telling her about the Transcendent One doesn't seems a good idea to me
So many retards today and yesterday.This will get characters killed off.

>>34341012Decu liberally took the inititive to tell Pinky about the helping bit before the killing other evil self bit for maximum suffering when the latter would make much more sense but it doesn't matter. What does matter is we get this out, even if it costs a body, before lack of communication causes some sort of preventable disaster. Also Mami a shit.
>>34340930>[x]"Can I save Oriko?"
>>34340930>[x]No more. Just...keep quiet. You don't want to risk her getting angry again.jesus christ please no more retardation, you idiots make these threads painful and suck the fun from them
>>34340969Seems to me that the whole "help her" thing was pointless without telling her about TNO. Telling her that its not (sort of) our fault was kinda the whole point in my view, since it gives us and Pinky a common enemy.
>>34340930>]Tell her about the Transcendent One. She has to know. If she hurts you again, you don't give a shit, she HAS to know.We really should have told her about this one first, before saying anything about helping her.Oops.Well, let's get on with it, don't want to have gone through that for nothing.
>>34340930>[x]Tell her about the Transcendent One. She has to know. If she hurts you again, you don't give a shit, she HAS to know.

>>34340997aw, c'mon? No love for the Torment reference?
>>34340930>[x]No more. Just...keep quiet. You don't want to risk her getting angry again.Welp.
>>34341094I suppose I can see where you're coming from. I don't think telling her about TNO is a bad idea, I'd just rather give her some time to get comfortable with the idea of us being "on her side" before dropping that particular bit of information. Well, I don't think either one is a particularly bad choice, it's just a personal preference on how and when to proceed. >>34340930Our first voting period for today is closed! Thank you for your participation, everyone! Let's have fun with the thread!
>>34341089Your way would have mean we suffered for absolutely no reason. In my view thats even more rearded.
I'm sensing samefaggotry.C'mon, guys, let's not have told her we'd help her for nothing. Really. C'mon. Now we'll probably never get to tell her. Cowards.
>>34341129So, which vote won? Silence I think?
>>34341129NOMEGUCA IS SRS BZNZ
>>34341130>Your wayI wasn't participating in the last thread because of you retards, this is your fucking mess, you made us suffer for no reason.Go die in a fire.
>>34341150I generally don't count the votes when I'm doing banners since I'm usually goofing off drawing instead of counting. Sorry, I don't know. I could ask Decu?
>>34341165Then go away from this thread too and no one can blame you for anything.
And just as I'm off to work, I see this.FUUUUUUUUUUUU...Anon's please don't ruin it for the rest of us.
>>34341170What happened to Wendy? I haven't seen her around in a while.
>>34341150welp, we're learning not to blab unnessicarily, I suppose, which is something.Sure, it took us botching Neco's interrogation, AND being brutally tortured by an insane eldritch entity, but we're learning.
>>34341145Nigga we're fucking dyingShe's already assumed we can't talk, so and there's nothing not letting us tell her later. In fact, we could just say we didn't know.We don't even know what the Transcendent One is like. Besides the fact that.... well, you know.
>>34341189We do.we had a talk with the 3 stoogies about her goals.
>>34341186Yeah. Now when TNO does something that screws Pinky up, she will think it was us instead and come and REALLY hurt us.
>>34341201Nothing goes until we talk to her ourself.
>>34341189We know that TNO is responsible for what happened to Pinky, and we know that Pinky is torturing us for something TNO did.
>>34341150>>34341170I asked Decu-chan! It seems like "remaining quiet" won this time. Decu's writing the next scene now, so let's all wait and see how it goes. >>34341185She'll be along later, I think! Anyhow, thanks again everyone who took the time to vote! I hope you all enjoy the rest of the thread!
>>34341208I didn't say we were learning the right lesson.Just that we were learning.
>>34341208>>34341232I think you guys mean TTO, not TNO.
its happening isnt it?
>>34341241Whatever. Homucifer is the more popular term anyway. Its just not something easily used in-story.
>>34341236I hope so too, shame about all the screaming though.
>>34341252Deculture wants you to call her Homusatan.
>>34341236At least no one died horribly, right?
>>34341282There's still plenty of time.
>>34341277>>HomusatanDeculture is wrong, has poor taste, smells funny, and he should feel bad.
>>34341176I did that in the last thread, and I'm still getting blamed for everything when I wasn't even in it.This playerbase just get's more and more toxic and deprecates the quality of this quest more and more with every thread.
>>34341277And last time I checked, which was quite awhile ago, everyone confirmed he had shit taste.
>>34341252Homucifer is a stupid name, the comparison to Paradise Lost was something people threw around when information was scarce, before people out of Japan got to see it. It doesn't fit in hindsight.
One would have thought that with the arc titled, the fall of chiaki matsuda, things were going to go badly either way we chose.Silence just kicks it down the road further so she gets angry when we didn't tell her and thinks we're out to get her.
>>34341299Case in point : Ecstacy Darks
>>34341318no biggie, we'll just have to kill ourselves before it happens.
>>34341318We haven't even begun to fall yet. We're still driving towards that particular cliff.
>>34341313>This playerbase just get's more and more toxic and deprecates the quality of this quest more and more with every thread.Yeah, this gets to the point where I just stop caring sometimes and let the threads 404 and pile up and read through 5 of them at once and then participate in a live one to see if things are still shit.Seems like that cycle is starting up again.
>>34340930[x] "please miss, may i have some more"
>>34341318Coobie looks like a marshmallow, I want to eat it.
>>34341313You realise no one gives a fuck who you even are? You aren't being blamed for anything because as far as everyone is concerned, you are just a random meaningless anon. So calm down and stop complaining all the time.
>>34341313Are you new to the internet? Do you take everything said to you personally even if it doesn't apply to you, as if you think people give a shit about you as an individual? Make your arguments for or against a vote, but don't whine if it doesn't win because you think you know best; because you don't and everyone else's vote is equally valid.
>>34341318Pinky pulling her arm back, her hand clenched into a bloody fist while her other hand grips a torn collar."Why didn't you tell me Homura-chan?! This is YOUR fault!"Chiaki trying to shield her bruised face from the assault, tears streaming down her face."Im sorry, Please stop, I tried, it hurts."
>>34341324I suggested Yami Tsukikage to play up the Heartcatch angle but he didn't listen to meeeeeeeeee. Which is fine, I guess. It just gives me more ammo to tease him over, heh
>>34341232Pinky is torturing us because we keep 'helping' against her will and because we never listen to her and do what she tells us to do. We are being tortured because we are selfish and need to control everyone for 'their own good'. We are not being tortured for anything the TTO did.
>>34341406Pretty much. Theres another goddess level entity out there. She is the one who fucked Pinky bad. Pinky thinks WE are the one who fucked her.And since we did not TELL HER ABOUT THE OTHER GODDESS, Pinky will almost certainly blame us for anything else Homucifer will do aswell.Ohwell, lets look at the bright side, atleast now we have an alarm system of sorts. When Wendy and Midori both suddenly die horribly, we know Homucifer has done something. We don't know what, but we know she has done something that upset Pinky. Who naturally thought it was us.
Yeah, I think that what we really ought to have done is just straight-up apologize and ASK if she wanted our help, but I missed both potentially relevant votes, dammit all.
>>34341438Could you elaborate?
>>34341438Hmm, never thought about it like that. Maybe we should trust Pinky a bit more to know what she's doing, at least she's honest about what she wants.
I feel like we won't win if we just do the same shit every other Homura tried before.We need to Rebellion it up and do something really extremely out of the ordinary for Homuloops if we want a happy ending.
>>34341438>>"YOU WANTING TO FUCKING HELP TURNED ME INTO THIS, HOMURA-CHAN!'This is a fairly clear reference to Rebellion. Pinky's angry that Homucifer's interference made her literally fall from grace. So, like the other anon said, it's nothing that Chiaki did, but what "a Homura did". However, you're right in one aspect: Chiaki's nature is controlling, same as Homucifer. By always burdening herself with all the responsibility and trying to help, Chiaki is pretty much falling into the same pattern that Homucifer did. I'm kind of amused how anon manages to maintain her in character to her nature despite everything else. Now, if you subscribe to the theory that Chiaki is actually an amnesiac Homucifer, then things start to get downright creepy...
>>34341500>I'm kind of amused how anon manages to maintain her in character to her nature despite everything else. It's more of the fact that Homura falls into the standard player controlled character role. Players don't want to trust NPC to do anything because it risks it either going wrong or the death of an NPC they like.
>>34341521We're going to make at least one fucking exception to that rule for Sallaka. RIGHT?
>>34341475Personally I wanted to just tell her about Homucifer. I did not even mention the "help" part in my vote in the previous thread.What really annoys me is that we said the help part, but did NOT mention Homucifer, meaning we suffered for no reason. This was all so completely pointless.Telling Pinky about Homucifer would have been beneficial. It would have warned Pinky about a potential threat, and helped her see us as more of an ally while also letting her know that it was Homucifer who messed her up.Telling Pinky that we want to "help her", but not telling her HOW we plan to help her (by killing the Transcendent One, who is really to blame) obviously pissed her off, since she has no idea what our "help" is going to include, because we did not tell her that part, despite being the MOST IMPORTANT part.Ahwell. Whats done is done.
>>34341545We did promise to trust her, yes.
>>34341545Hahahahahahahaha you have more faith in the /tg/ hivemind than I do.
>>34341545Probably because it's been stated that the only way she'll survive. It's just standard fare that players will avoid giving complete control to the DM/QM as much as possible.
>>34341555Thus guaranteeing that we won't. You should know how this works, anon. This is the Yumamind. As if we'll keep our promises.
>Pinky glances towards Midori, the Callidus frozen in the middle of her eating. Her mouth open to receive a spoonful of food hanging in midair.>The next one's like, really really close, you know! So close I can just taste it!" She poses here, throwing up double peace signs and letting her blood-pinked tongue loll out of her mouth. "Like this, get it? Ahahaha~!"D-does this mean what I think it might mean? Is green hair really the danger?does Midori have a golden fork?
>>34341551There's always a reason with Pinky. Usually that reason is "she's fuckin' INSANE."
>>34341578Midori has a golden panties
>>34341500Homura was always kind of an anon to begin with, considering that she started out as a shy girl who latched onto the first person to give her positive attention.
>>34340944You shake your head down at her, deciding to just...keep quiet for now. To save your breath. It hurts enough to even breathe, anyway, and you doubt you'd be able to survive her next tantrum if you set her off.So no. You don't have anything else to say."Mmm? Really, really? Homura-chan doesn't have anything else for me?" Pinky grins as she squirms on your lap, before frowning. "Well, I guess I did go overboard there, huh...sorry, Homura-chan! You know how it is, being crazy and everything!" She knuckles her forehead just as she contorts her face into the stuck-out tongue-and-eyewink combo. "Tehe!"..."Alright, that's enough hanky-panky for today!" Pinky hops off of your lap, landing on both feet before twirling to face you, her twintails swaying with her movement. "I'll leave you to enjoy the rest of your party, Homura-chan, just don't forget what we talked about, alright?"Y-yeah. Yeah, you won't."Okay! I'll be checking up on you again real soon, to make sure you don't miss me too much!" She poses here, arms held out on either side of her - before bringing her hands together and making a heart sign with her fingers. "PINKY FLASH!"The combined screams of a thousand blind men drowning all at once bubbles in your ears, loud and long enough that when time finally resumes again - your Shield clicking back into its original position - you can still hear the echoes ringing in your mind.Around you, your ratification party resumes as normal - with Kyoko feeding a blushing Sayaka, and Midori giggling at the scene, even taking a picture of it with her smartphone. Everything normal. Nobody dead. That's...good. You shake your head, leaning back on your throne as you drag in a shuddering breath. Christ. That...that was too close. Way too close--...Shit, the blood! You have to hide the blood, it's--[1/2]
>>34341592True enough I guess.Though it would have been easier to accept it if Pinky had tortured us because she was insane.Now she tortured us because Chiaki kept back the one vital piece of information that might actually have prevented the torture. Thats annoying!
>>34341631Looking down at yourself, you blink as you see no trace of the wounds that Pinky had inflicted upon you earlier. Not even a drop of the blood you've been hacking up.The pain is...well, it's there, real enough. Lancing through you with every breath you take. But not as strong as earlier. Not as painful. Less...real."Sempai?" Midori speaks up beside you, and you turn to see the Callidus holding a spoonful of food towards your mouth, a bright smile on her face. "Come on, sempai, say 'Aah'! You haven't even touched your food! I--" Her smile falls as she looks directly at you, her eyes widening in concern. "...Sempai? You're as pale as a sheet! What's wrong? Are you alright?"How do you react?Pass it off as fatigue, try to act normally for the rest of the night. No one needs to know.Excuse yourself and step out momentarily. You just need a bit of fresh air, that's all.Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.

>>34341637>Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.DISKLOZUR
>>34341687Midori is already super involved since Siberia. We just have to make sure the both of us are on the same page so neither of us can get blind-sided. We've been putting off this conversation for way too long and I'd be happy if we could get it done with now that we're officially ratified.A conversation in private, after the ceremony, sounds like a good way to finally talk about Siberia and bring Midori up to speed on things too.
>>34341698Well, there's been a lot of discussion about Midori being nothing more than a moeblob waifu, so I figured getting her involved and doing shit that isn't just Chiaki would make things more interesting.
>>34341698How have you still not realized that trying to do everything alone and hiding the people we care about will get them all killed. It's been heavily implied and outright stated a few time throughout the whole quest.
>>34341727Right, right, I mean to say "more knowingly and willingly involved, rather than involved without knowing that she is".
>>34341637>[X]Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.No fucking lies. If we're to get a good end, we absolutely must start trusting people to make their own decisions, and step 1 is to give them the information they need for that.
>>34341637>Pass it off as fatigue, try to act normally for the rest of the night. No one needs to know.
>>34341637>[X]Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now."I was told there would be pancakes."
>>34341753It's funny how often lying and hiding shit get voted for since so far lying to important characters has only ever made shit worse.
>>34341637>[X]Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.Hiding shit has only ever made it worse.
>>34341788because it's like playing cards with your entire hand showing, anon.Everyone knows what you've got and there's no room for bluffing when it matters.
>>34341637>[x]Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.I'm all for making more promises we're going to break.
>>34341637>Excuse yourself and step out momentarily. You just need a bit of fresh air, that's all.>Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.
>>34341727Total and complete agreement!
>>34341637>[x]Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.
>>34341637[x]Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.
>>34341637>Promise to tell her later, pretend everything is okay for now.Sorry Midori.
>>34341637This concludes our second voting period of today! Thank you all for your participation!
>>34341808Yeah but if you play too close too your chest the guy next to you whose trying to see your card so he can help you win won't be able to.
>>34341808"Honor and integrity only matter between friends. With enemies, anything goes."Cirroco Jones, John Varley's "Demon"
We might want to apologize for the three stooges for getting all of us tortured.Though something tells me the physical torture was probably minor to them, compared to finally seeing Pinky through Chiakis eyes and the psychological horror of seeing what Madoka has become.I recall they cried when they learned about Pinky. Now that they have actually seen her...
Refusing to talk to Midori about what is going on because we think it is 'better' or 'safer' for her to remain ignorant is just another example of us trying to selfishly control people "for their own good'.
>>34341834ironic, because that's exactly the role we're playing for Madoka, but Malal has chosen to keep us blind, deaf and dumb.
>>34341839Is Pinky our enemy? She does need to die, but is she really our enemy?>>34341881This.
>>34341883Malal found out right at the end that that was a really fucking dumb idea, to be fair. She can make poor assumptions too.
>>34341882its also our vanity talking, because we don't want people to think we're insane.I mean, we totally are. But we don't want people knowing that.
>>34341883Malal has also been kind of dead for a while, so there's only so much we can do about that.
Chiaki seems to me like the best person to help Pinky since she has none of the emotional attachment that Homura has.
>>34341883And it turned out shit for her. We should be smart enough to trust the people that matter.>>34341882It's also stupid because she's one of the most informed characters we know about at the moment. There is no way to not get her involved at this point because she already is.
>>34341893Well, technically it was implied by Murderface(of the stooges) that killing Homucifer might restore Pinky.So Pinky is not really our enemy, and she does not really need to die either. Or atleast thats the current plan. Whether or not its going to work is anyones guess.
>>34341927>Whether or not its going to work is anyones guess.Hell, that could be what triggers the apocalypse.But, for better or worse, it's the course of action that we're going to take.
>>34341927That is to say, restore Madokami. Killing Homucifer might turn Pinky back to Madokami. Since the part of Pinky that is Madoka was the one who convinced Pinky to create the GWs, this does seem plausible.
>>34341637>Come on, sempai, say 'Aah'! You haven't even touched your food! I--" Her smile falls as she looks directly at you, her eyes widening in concern. "...Sempai? You're as pale as a sheet! What's wrong? Are you alright?"This just once again proves that Midori may be one of our sharpest tools in the shed aside from Yuma.Simply because she knows or at least has an idea what's going on.We really should use her for Diplomacy and Quick Thinking because she has shown time and time again that she is good with it.
>>34341924So don't trust Mami then, Gotcha.
>>34341963Well of course she's already betrayed and lied to us multiple time snow. Even if she's not malicious she's nowhere close to trustworthy.
>>34341957Food for thought : Madokami seems able to manipulate Pinky's actions to some extent, at least from what we've heard/been told. But is it possible that it works both ways?
>>34341959To be fair, Chiaki is always super pale. I have no idea how much paler she could possibly get to make Midori take notice.(I'm almost done! Almost done!)
>>34341997Like, I'm guessing reflective.
>>34341963Of course never trust Mami!
>>34341993I think that was a one time thing. I don't think she has the strength to do it anymore.
>>34341980>>34341963Unfonrtunately part of her power is to make people subconsciously trust her..........holy shit. Mami's not a Vindicare - she's a CALLIDUS.
>>34341997As a standard action, Chiaki may attempt to go completely pale, causing her skin to become transparent. All people within 15 feet must save vs. fear or be freaked out for 3 rounds.
>>34341997Albino pale. Paler than White. She glows in the dark now.
>>34342016Mumi is a charisma-based class.
>>34342016That might actually make sense. And be amusing.
>>34342016I guess it's possible. All of the ranks outside Vindicare and Eversor don't seem to be restricted in what kind of weapons their magic spawns.
>>34342023>>34342043damn it guys now I want to see MGNQ for tabletop
>>34342076MAID and Magical Burst. Tadah.
>>34342066Mami's main "weapon" is her ribbons. She can simply make guns out of them.
>>34342066Strictly speaking, Mami's magic isn't gun-based anyway. It's Ribbons.She just has a personal preference for the guns. She could just as easily be making swords or shit with them if she felt like it.
>>34342076We're still working on that. It'll be a while.
>>34342095>>34342099That's true. At the end of the day there's going to be a lump of rank cross over with the original girls simply because the manga doesn't have the categories.
>>34341997When startled, the Murderface's skin becomes a perfectly Lambertian reflector.
>>34342076>>34342043Mum is the kind of person you cant keep your hands off.
>>34342107thats good to know!>>34342085my group wouldn't play MAID nor Magical Burst, they tend not to like mahou shoujo very much
>>34342112There is.The class you're given is largely just based on the powers you get and the weapon you're given, which is determined largely by your personality and your wish. The class you get affects which training you get.The training turns you into the class, it's not really inherent in the contract.The classes don't appear to be really strict about who is what, at least not in the ninth. It's all about turning you into the best meguca you can be, and where you feel most comfortable.Mami (and to a lesser extent Murderface) exemply the Vindicares, and Sayaka, Kyoko and Kirika evemplify the Eversors.
>>34342107A minis based MGNQ wargame would be neat. All the MGs are high quality figures, but witches are construction paper, and barriers are your little sisters dollhouse/makeup playset/tea party set.This could be a wonderfully terrible idea.
>>34342242Mami might have received Callidus training on how to fake beind a Vindicare.Or she might just have learned on her own.
>>34342283I'd be surprised if someone who has been around as long as Mami and who is as effective and organised as her doesn't have some training in most classes.Cross classing just... it's not some big deal.
>>34342330Mami was training to be Warmaster, It's pretty safe to say that she has had multiple class training.
>>34342198Just don't tell them what it's based on. Play down the majou shoujo aspect, play up the grimdark aspects.
>>34342346Good point.Chiaki is a Vindicare, but Sayaka is giving her Eversor training now.
>>34342198I ran a Call of Cthulhu game in MAID without the players ever realizing it. Affection does not mean what you think it means when the 'Master' is a cultist and you are his unwitting pawns.
>>34342076>>34342107Some form of 40k homebrew, given what decu has said in the past. I'm waiting on DH 2.0, since it is supposed to have some investigation mechanics, as well has having been based on OW.
>>34342168>Mum is the kind of person you cant keep your hands off.>MumUhh…
>>34342518he's talking about your mum
>>34342518Paging Dr. Freud, Dr. Freud to the MGNQ thread please.
>>34342549...This is so going into the next Witches Barrier we have to enter.
>>34342420that seems awesome>>34342499I would be able to trick my grope into playing it if that’s the case especially since one of them is a WH 40K fan
>>34342183Goddamn, Sayaka, diving right in.
>>34342596>>34342636guys, less summoning Freud and more summoning Decu please.
>>34342596We've actually been pretty good about keeping a sensible post count today. I think it's kinda nice like this...
>>34342183Wow, Mami has so many friends.
>>34342636Freud has assumed direct control of this thread.
>>34342592Dr. Freud, Multiple Emergency in the MGNQ thread. Immediate assistance requested.
>>34342592Dr. Freud is going to have a busy thread
>>34342654homu going straight for the butt too, of course
>>34342669With butts and legs? I'm not sure if what I've got is cute enough to summon him.
>>34341012It was indeed something of a "mistake" to offer to help Pinky, but it was a mistake Homura would have made. She has relied on herself and her own iron determination to save Madoka across countless turns of the shield, becoming ever more driven and self-reliant along the way. And at every turn she fails, with her monomaniacal focus inevitably screwing things up sooner or later. Having Pinky lay into her for that might be a long term benefit, though, since it is also an invitation to examine that mistake and learn from it.I think thematically we are doomed if Chiaki does not learn from Homura's failure. The hero being brought low by a tragic flaw despite their incredible efforts has been a staple of drama since drama was invented. And Chiaki's (and /tg/'s) need to control and direct everyone to finally reach the happy ending is a major character flaw.So we should consider doing something completely different. Chiaki can't protect everyone on her own. She can't save everyone. In fact she can't save anyone, even herself. Only by working together and by trusting others to save themselves is it possible that a happy ending might emerge. And yet bringing in Chiaki's loved ones and friends puts them into severe danger too; she has to trust their judgement and their capabilities and accept that she can't assure a positive outcome.And to trust is to open the way for betrayal. But doing the same thing over and over again is the definition of insanity, isn't it?Confiding in Midori is so self-evidently a good idea I don't think it needs much discussion. She's in extreme danger anyway but we can hardly scare her away now. And maybe Miracle Midori can pull another miracle out of her hat, just perhaps?Sayaka and Kyouko have earned Chiaki's trust on a personal level. Mami and even Kyubey have been instrumental to her rise, and Wendy was beloved of her once. There's always a risk of betrayal, especially in Noir, but playing safe isn't going to win this thing.
>>34342636>>34342677>>34342678sorry for the typo dood have you ever tried to type with flippers?
>>34341653 >>34341658 >>34341663You'll tell her later, you murmur quietly, forcing your pained grimace into something approaching a reassuring smile. Wincing again as you feel your facial muscles awkwardly trying to shift themselves into new and completely unfamiliar territory.This doesn't seem to convince Midori at all - if anything, her expression of concern deepens, even teetering on the edge of panic. To her credit, however, she immediately catches on to you wanting to be discreet about it - the Callidus leaning forward to push the spoon nearer your lips as she lowers her own voice into a whisper. "Is...is it her again, sempai? Did she visit you?"You open your mouth to accept the spoonful of food, closing it as you nod. Either your encounter with Pinky drained you to the point that you can't even taste flavors - this particular mouthful tasting much like mushy cardboard - or the caterers managed to fuck up something as simple as buffet fare. ...Wait. How did she know? Your Time Stop--"You blurred just a bit, earlier, sempai." Midori whispers back. "Just...for a moment. I doubt anyone who wasn't looking at you closely would've seen it. I thought I was just imagining it myself, until you came back looking really...sick." She immediately offers you another spoonful of food, and a glass of cold soda to wash it all down. "Get something inside you, sempai, even if it doesn't taste all that good. You'll feel better with something in your stomach, and if worst comes to worst, you'll have something to throw up instead of dry-retching all night."...Yeah. Yeah, that makes sense."Do you want me to call a Venenum over?" She asks after you force down the fifth mouthful. "I can just--"[1/2]
>>34342654>Implying anyone of us wouldn't dig right in too if given the chance
>>34342702>>34342725One better.Vocaloid MG Questers.
>>34342742I'm just worried if too many people are playing to get an "interesting" story rather than a happy ending.
>>34342756No, you shake your head. No Venenum. Not right now. You don't want to be the first Warmaster to need medical attention during her ratification. That's...that's just embarrassing all around."..." Midori frowns here, before pushing another spoonful of food towards you. "I don't mean to offend, sempai, but you can really be stupid sometimes, sempai, you know that?"So you've heard, you tell her, managing a genuine smile after you swallow your tenth mouthful of food - the grub settling nicely in your stomach and making you feel a bit less like dying. That's you in a nutshell. Really stupid sometimes. Or most of the time.Midori frowns again, but her expression softens as she reaches forward to place her hand on top of yours to give it a squeeze. "We'll talk later after all this, alright, sempai? You promise, right?"Yeah. You promise.A flashbulb setting off beside your table makes both you and Midori turn towards its source - and you see both Kyoko and Sayaka lowering their smartphones, smug smiles on their faces. "So bold, Murderface, to be this romantic during your own ratification," Sayaka sneers. "Planning to go official NOW, huh? Should've known you were planning to announce it at the same time that everyone's here. Much more dramatic that way, right?"...What. It's your turn to frown, as Midori hunkers down, blushing an absolute crimson. You weren't planning to announce anything! You're just eating together, that's all! For fuck's sake--"Yeah, yeah." Sayaka scoffs, and it's here that the lights in the assembly hall start to turn down, making the seated diners making up your Officio buzz with conversation. "...Oh, looks like it's time for the idol show to start! I wonder who they got?"...Please don't be Ruri, you find yourself praying as you accept another spoonful of food, a spotlight from above cracking into life and focusing on an empty spot on the hall floor, where a microphone stand had been set up. [2/3]
>>34342774...you're in the wrong quest for a happy ending, bub.
>>34342756>>34342780Ok, Midori's being a pretty good waifu right now.
>>34342780hahahahaha is it's idol time!
>>34342794That's the kind of attitude up with which I just can't put.
>>34342780Time for Iori to recognize Midori as the one who helped try rape her and cause a massive scene!
>>34342794I want a happy ending for Chiaki and Midori. I realize it's going to be incredibly difficult, but that's what I'm asking for. I had to step out for a quick errand so someone please get the upcoming banner for me!
>>34342774do you even meduca
>>34342845That was supposed to be "aiming for" not "asking for"... Stupid autocorrect
>>34342845Happy endings are boring.Bittersweet endings are god tier.
>>34342780The idol that steps into the spotlight is...familiar, but it's not Ruri. Nor is it Iori.From her long silver hair teased up into an elegant coiffure and her tall, slender frame wrapped in an elegant black silk dress with the shoulder-length gloves to match - it's none other than Shijou Takane, the idol who you encountered during the Kilgore op and also the idol who politely asked you to leave Iori alone. The spotlight making the crystal necklace around her ivory neck gleam and glitter almost hypnotically."Good evening, everyone. My name is Shijou Takane, of 765 Productions. I will be your idol for tonight." Her smile is as soft and as mysterious as it was back then, when you first met her. "Please allow me to sing my set, and after that I'll be open for requests. Just no Death Metal songs, please, I fear I've strained my throat after accepting too many of them the last time I was here." Laughter ensues as she gives the audience a wink."And now, to celebrate the ratification of Warmaster Chiaki Matsuda..." Takane turns with a slow, elegant grace towards you, reaching out with a gloved hand. "May I sing a song that a colleague of mine requested especially to sing for you?"You blink as the spotlight slides over to you - and all too quickly, you nod while shielding your eyes. Fuck, that was aimed right at your fucking face!"Thank you." Takane smiles again, and she begins to sing into the microphone just as the music starts to play. You frown as you recognize the melody even before the idol sings the first verse....A Magical Girl's First Wish, huh?Fucking idols. Seriously.Still, after just what you've been through, it's...sort of nice to hear, you guess. A sign that you're back in the real world, and not trapped in your Time Stop with a homicidal eldritchian horror.[3/4]
show us the idoru
>>34342869Aw yeah, best idol for most important event.
>>34342869"colleague of mine requested especially to sing for you"Something horrible is about to happen!
>>34342869Fffffffffuck yes! Best idol!
>>34342869The song ends at the last verse, and the audience readily applauds Takane's performance. Midori enthusiastically claps as well, while you manage a miserable smacking of the heels of your hand. ...Fuck you still feel weak as shit. Pinky really did a number on you.Just as the second song starts, though, it's here that you notice something on the table in front of you.It's...it's a fat little bird. Some kind of a raven. Completely black, its eyes a pure, bright red. It would've looked evil as fuck, if not for the fact that it's fat enough to be almost spherical.And it's looking at you with...well, intelligence. There's no other word for it. Not the blank, hunger-driven look that all animals tend to get, but with something approaching an almost human sentience.The fuck? Where'd it come from?What do you do?Try and shoo it away.Try to pick it up, see what it wants.Try talking to it.
>>34342833>>34342845Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see oneI'm just not under any illusions and I'm not going to bend character to try and get it.
>>34342890>Try talking to it.

>>34342890[x] tilt your head sideways, as if trying to will it's presence to make sense
>>34342895>I'm not going to bend characterGood man. I guess then we're both voting for what we think is in-character for Chiaki, it's just I'm more optimistic.>>34342890[X] Try talking to it
>>34342890[x]Try talking to it."I thought Invubators only came in mutant-cat form. Didn't know they could be fat crows, too."We are either going to massively insult the bird, or the entire Incubator race by calling them the cat version of 'nigger kike'.

>>34342890 Get Verification - Soulgem check for illusion, and ask ~Kyoko~ or ~Midori~ if either of them see it. Both of them will put up with our insanity. Others, not so much.

>>34342890>[x]Try to pick it up, see what it wants.We all know what to do with cute things, right?
It's probably this kind of bird. Please excuse the tumblring, just the first thing I could find.
>>34342890>[x]Try talking to it.asking an animal where it popped up from is not crazy, is it?
>>34342994The bird belongs to "Vintage". The warmaster of the 9th prior to Kharn. There was a picture in the last thread.There was lots of speculation that Vintage is the Homura of this dimension, but I am pretty sure she is not Homucifer atleast.
>>34343044Vintage is Enishi's eldest sister. Sayaka implied the relation in the last thread and the full name "Vintage Karasawa" has been occasionally given before
>>34343044Don't think Chiaki knows that though.
>>34343072When are we going to get some squishy Squishi Enishi, Hat?
>>34342774I am. That's exactly what I'm doing. I'm voting for the options I think will lead to a story that I will enjoy reading, rather than a story that the characters will enjoy being in.
>>34343095That's fine, until you get Chiaki killed. Or worse.
>>34343037Or you know, this thing.
>>34343095Aye, and this is better. That said, part of that interesting will be Homura actually learning what she did wrong and why. But, yeah, I'm fairly certain there'll be a lot of tragedy along the way, and I vote accordingly - with the understanding that lolfuckshitup is not a valid strategy for reaching it, and instead I've gotta work with the character we've already built up (whatever elements and decisions of her I disagree with).
>>34343087Do we actually have any art of Enishi, come to think of it?
>>34342890>[X]Try to pick it up, see what it wants.Eh, why not.
>>34342890>Try to pick it up, see what it wants.It's obviously related to Vintage, shooing it away could be offensive.Talking to the bird could make us seem crazy.Thus, process of elimination.
>>34343148All I've got from the threads
>>34343037>>34342890On a somewhat related note I absolutely love this pic.
>>34343138I'm not the only one who thinks Vintage is hot as fuck.Right?
>>34343072Man, this family gets around.
>>34342890Time for Funbuns.
>>34343184Nope, but I like short haired girls.
>>34343184She gives me the creeps but she's pretty cute.
>>34343231Man, I bet Midori's listening next time Enishi tries to get into Chiaki's pants.That could be awkward or hilarious, depending.
Kay! Made it back! >>34342867>>Bittersweet endings are god tier.I generally agree, but given the background here, that Chiaki is a Homura, I'd like for her and Midori to finally have a happy ending... I think it would be "god tier" in this case, at least for me. >>34342895I think this is the best, yes. I don't want Chiaki to break character, but I do think she has it in her to actually achieve a happy ending. She might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but she's not dumb either. She learns from her mistakes (and then makes new ones), and I think with some subtle character development she could go all the way and achieve what none of the other Homus could. >>34343095A story that I enjoy reading and one that Chiaki and Midori have a happy ending are exactly the same for me, so it's what I'll try to vote for, generally. >>34343087This is a concept sketch of Enishi >>34343175that I was sketching out! She'll probably get a redesign, but after I'm done with Odette, I think! >>34343197Thank you for getting that!
>>34343005>"Hahahahahahahahahahaha">"Wait, you're serious?">"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"
>>34343260By the time Chiaki's got Midori, Wendy and Enishi hanging off of her she's going to be Singing Queen songs all day long.
>>34343184If you're into femdom, I guess.Not sure if that's what Decu aimed for but she looks much like 40k Inquisitor to me. The kind that's most intimidanting when they're smiling. And she is smiling.
>>34343184She's alright, but Enishi is the sexiest
>>34343271>A story that I enjoy reading and one that Chiaki and Midori have a happy ending are exactly the same for me, so it's what I'll try to vote for, generally. And I am 100% alright with that. I'm not the only one here, so I don't have any right to decide that other people's votes are somehow worth less than my own.
>>34343138Jakuri? Is that you? I bet she's naked under that cloak.
>>34343372Hahahaha. Sadly no.Jakuri would be awesome to have around though.
>>34343231Where's this from?
>>34343594From the thread 200 pic!
>>34343604Who is the qt in the mask next to QB?
>>34343661I think that was supposed to be Minimode Risa
>>34343661>>34343694Either that or one of those cannibal girls Wendy hangs out with.
>>34343694She's a big girl... well, not really.
>>34343694Didn't know she had a minimode, thanks
You know it doesn't get noticed much, but what do you think QB is REALLY playing for? What's his endgame?
>>34343736Money. All the incubators are in it for the universe's life, but their immediate goal is money
>>34343736He does it for the bitches.
>>34343736He has no endgame. Incubators are basically Sisyphus.
>>34343736Proving to his brothers that he's perfectly sane and capable of whopping all their asses at once and then take his place as the competent mutant space cat overlord....shortly before being turned into a fluffy despair mop by insane goddesses.
>>34343736Dont tell anyone.
>>34343736Usurping his eldest brother? He has "joked" about constructing his own moon base and fighting the other incubators.
>>34343837Who picks Mami? Really now.
>>34343736As it turns out Incubators aren't the sharpest tools in the shed..
>>34343878Did Madoka's contracting negate any entropy?Maybe the Incubators got hosed completely.
>>34343801His thoughts were actually about some concern for his girls beyond simple cost-benefit numbers. And the other Incubators consider him crazy because he sees the girls he contacts as more than just tools. So yes, being in it for the bitches is probably in there somewhere.
>>34342930 >>34342931 >>34342908 >>34342942You look around. It doesn't seem like anyone else has noticed the fat little demonic bird - Midori's turned in her seat to face Takane directly, completely enraptured by the idol's performance. Sayaka and Kyoko are similarly occupied, with your Equerry swaying slightly as she mouths the lyrics perfectly while your best friend continues to shovel food into her mouth.At least they won't see you try and talk to a bird, then. There's some consolation in that, you find.Shaking your head, you slowly reach out with a hand, offering the fat little bird your index finger. For a moment, you wonder if it'd get the wrong message and peck you instead - but it seems to understand just what you were going for, the tiny raptor hopping up to perch itself onto your finger. Its bright red eyes darting around madly before rooting underneath a stubby little wing with its stubby little beak. You look around again, checking once more to see if anyone's noticed. ...Nope, everyone's eyes seem to be rooted at Takane, so no chance of that there. Shaking your head, it's here that you bring the thing up to face level - making sure to hold away far enough to prevent it from pecking your eyes out through your glasses."The fuck are you?" You murmur at it, suddenly feeling stupid for talking to a goddamn bird. ...Christ, if it talks like an incubator, you're going to stab it with your fork, no doubt about it. Cats are bad enough, but creepy shit like this--+ Creepy? I beg to differ. Reginald has a very royal bearing. + A refined, feminine voice sneaks its way into your mind, very nearly making you drop the fucking thing on the table. + But I realize that not many share my tastes, so I'll let that go, Warmaster. +...What? What the fuck? Is...is the bird actually fucking talking to you? Is it an Incubator all along? You fumble for a fork to stab it with. Fuck, fuck--[1/2]
>>34343889It didn't, hence the existence of wraiths
>>34343936Well, that's just to keep the system going.I'm wondering if Madoka extended the life of the universe.
>>34343915That makes me wonder why the Ninth doesn't have closer relations with the Seventh and Seventeenth, seeing as they're the "good guy" incubators. Somehow he's BFFs with the Eighth instead.
>>34343927>You fumble for a fork to stab it with. Fuck, fuck--'NEW WARMASTER CAUSES INCIDENT WITH 1ST OFFICIO DURING RATIFICATION: FILM AT 11'
>>34343927+ ...Please relax. Reginald isn't talking to you, I am. + The voice is...well, it's not like an Incubator at all, where it interrupts your thoughts to be heard - if anything, it's remarkably similar to how the three stooges talk to you, sliding in between thoughts to make themselves understood. + Reginald does not have the ability to speak. Not yet, anyway. He does have an encyclopedic knowledge of insults, however. +Really? Well...that doesn't really help things much. Stranger things have happened, though, so you'll probably skip on freaking out at the moment.You glance around you and then into the audience, hoping to catch someone staring at you meaningfully - but it's too dark to tell, and everyone is pretty much looking at your direction, seeing as Takane is performing in front of you. + That will do just fine, Warmaster Matsuda. Your keeping calm is mutually beneficial to both our interests.+ Even if you can't see who's talking to you, you'd bet any money that they were smiling right now. It sounds like it, anyway. + Now, I realize I haven't introduced myself yet, but I assure you I'm on your side. That said, may I ask you to excuse yourself and step out in the corridors for a brief smoke, after Takane-san has finished her current song? I'd much rather talk to you in private, away from...+ The voice pauses here, as if hesitating. +...certain personalities who I'd rather not have to deal with at the moment. And please bring Reginald with you. Don't worry, I won't take up too much of your time. +Huh. So apparently you're being asked by someone mysterious for a smoke break outside.How do you react?...Can I bring someone with me?Insist on this person telling you her name and why she wants to talk with you.Follow what she says. You're still in your own Officio, after all.

>>34343966[X]Insist on this person telling you her name and why she wants to talk with you.We know who she is but Chiaki does not. Also, as >>34343995 pointed out, why would she want to talk outside, when she can communicate telepathically.

>>34343966Thank you for your participation! This concludes our current voting period!
You know, I wonder if Chiaki could learn to do that telepathic communication thing?I mean Murderface (of 3 stooges) communicates that way, so Chiaki learning to do it might be plausible. Could be handy.
>>34344223>C'mere I'm a fairy>Don't you believe in fairies?
>>34344223No, but it also doesn't look like the face of Reggie
>>34344295She already can with midori
It's probably a test.
>>34344295As >>34344342 pointed out, we can already do telepathic communication, but only with Midori because their Soul Gems are linked.We can also use that link to immediately pin-point Midori's location at any given moment, or to take control over her body too (not sure if it's a swap or not, Kyubey wasn't too specific)
>>34344389If Midori winds up in our body, would she start fondling herself?
>>34343955The ninth are violent psychopaths, they eighth are violent psychopaths, why would they hang out with any of the good guy Officios when they have each other to be irredeemable assholes with?
>>34344389Sure, but I meant in general. Theres no soul-gem link with Vintage and she can use telepathy with us.
>>34344379thats what i thought toothe first officio looks like a fun and magical place to join isnt it?
>>34344421Its a culexus trick
>>34344440>evil moon base>secretly supported Strauss's experimentsSwell guy, that First. Real fun at parties.
I'm always impressed by how this quest gets about 100 replies per hour, the only bad thing is that it goes over the post limit so damn quickly.
>>34344550It usually gets more. Today has been relatively quiet.
>>34344550Today's actually been a relatively slow and surprisingly civil day. I'm really surprised and happy, I have to say
>>34344578>>34344550>>34344565Surprising considering the rocky start.
>>34344520Kyoko can do it too I believe. Vintage is not culexus (I assume from the picture) and neither is Murderface. So while you are right that it is Culexus-related, some others can apparently learn it.
>>34344615Kyoko is weird like that though.
>>34344607I kinda wish we told her about TNO, but maybe we can save that for when she calms down.But we should do it soon.
>>34344646Yeah. But Chiaki is even weirder.
>>34344648Yeah I only wanted to tell Pinky we were trying to save her if we also told her about TNO. I arrived too late to vote in this thread though.
>>34344682Same here. Telling we wanted to help without telling about TNO was stupid and not what I wanted at all.
>>34344682The worst thing we could do is not tell her the plan.Because right now she thinks we're going to do something stupid rather than take responsibility for our past actions.
>>34344615>>34344646I think being a Culexus has something to do with making a selfless wish?In which case Kyoko's wish was... partly selfless (assuming she made the same one in this timeline, which she might not have) so maybe she has some small amount of potential?Sayaka's wish looks selfless on paper, but the motivation behind it might make it otherwise.
>>34344748In this timeline, Sayaka wished to be a hero.
>>34344769Nah, she still wished to fix her boyfriend.
Why can't Culexus just use their anti-magic magic to negate their anti-magic field to a certain radius
>>34344769Is there a list of known and speculated wishes somewhere?I have a sudden urge to create an image listing them.
>>34344748Yeah I know. The point is that since Murderface can use this trick when talking with Chiaki, its possible Chiaki could learn it just like Kyoko did.Maybe the motivation behind Chiakis(Homuras) wish was just selfless enough, or maybe the fact Chiaki is just bizarre allows her to cheat.
>>34344791Not to my knowledge, no.
>>34344791None. Although during a Sayaka flashback, narration implied that she "wished to be a hero". Her wish might have still been related to healing Kyosuke however.
>>34344825Excepyt her healing skills have to still be somewhere. Maybe her wish is the same, but her goal is to be a hero. Like canon.
>>34344843That's what I was implying, yes.
>>34344874Then why is wondering what Sayaka wished for even a question
>>34344790Why the hell would that work? Magic and anti-magic isn't like plus and minus, it's like "exists" and "doesn't exist"
>>34344843>Sayaka wishes away his wanker cramp>He decides to become Krauser>Sayaka buries herself in MG training.>Becomes the best, THE BEST!>Also gets KyokoI can't remember how to spell his name.
>>34344929But by having a existing thing not exist or vice versa, you get 0.
I'm done! It's finished!

>>34345242Okay, that's understandable.
>>34345242>MBAI knew it, that sexy office lady is your true form!
>>34345236I meant Cali, but this is not the thread to go all /int/.
I wonder how Decu keeps up with all this.Work and then running a quest until it's 4-5AM
>>34345308Plus liftinghe's like some sort of machine
>>34345308Don't forget getting huge.
>>34345308Ai yo, son.
>>34345308He lifts in his sleep to save time.
>>34345308Decu is powered by his own lifting and our suffering.
Could I ask our archiving friend to please archive the thread? Decu is having some pretty bad connection issues and asked me to request on his behalf.
>>34345308Decu is an alien fascinated with Earth culture. He doesn't actually work or lift, he just lies to make himself seem cool.
>>34345360I Already did it!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Questwas waiting for Chikuwa.
>>34345362It's true, only aliens can hate cinnamon buns.
>>34345360>bad connection issuesso we chikuwa now?
>>34344072Fine. You'll...do what this person tells you to, for now. But you have to know who they are first, and why they want to talk to you face to face. You're already talking anyway, so why go to all the trouble?+ Because there are some things that need to be talked about in person, Warmaster Matsuda. Important things, things that need their importance stressed and emphasized by direct communication. + The voice pauses here. + And if you must really know in advance, then I am Karasawa Vintage. Former Warmaster of the Ninth, preceding the Betrayer. Now Equerry of the Warmaster of the First. +Huh. That's...well. Sayaka did say that Vintage would want to talk to you sometime during your ratification, but you were expecting something more...relaxed, and less cloak-and-dagger.+ Trust me, I know this looks a certain way, but it's best all around if we keep things discreet. The less controversy we cause being seen talking to each other, the less paperwork we'll both have to deal with. I know how these things go, Warmaster Matsuda. After all, I've accepted the burden of that damnable hat, too."...She's got a point, there.Right, then. You'll be outside to meet her, as soon as Takane finishes her song.+ I'll be waiting, Warmaster Matsuda. Try not to attract too much attention on your way out. + The voice immediately fades to silence after that, and the fat little raven hops off of your finger and onto the table - industriously pecking at some loose grains of rice on your plate. You shake your head again, wondering just what else kind of shit the day has in store for you. First Wendy, then Misaka, THEN Pinky...and now, a former Warmaster of the same Officio you're now leading? What next?[1/2]
>>34345396>>34345430Thank you...! Still gonna try and wrap up, but better safe than sorry, I guess...>>34345263Who knows!
>>34345435Anyway. As soon as Takane's sung the last bar - and opened the floor to requests, immediately wincing at the yells of 'FREEBIRD' - you get up to meet Vintage outside, using the convenient excuse of a smoke break when both Sayaka and Midori asked about where you were going. Reginald, the clever little bugger, had hopped up onto your shoulder, burrowing itself into the mass of thick hair covering your neck and back. This seemed to satisfy the two, although Midori seemed rather suspicious. Nevertheless, they let you go, and the moment you step outside - the double doors automatically closing behind you - it's here that you see the only two other people in the corridor itself. Both of them looking rather short, with the other only a couple of inches higher than the other.You recognize one of them as your own Vindicare Rank Leader, Rea Ashford, in her own formal dress uniform and what looks like a military cap with...cat ears? The other figure, the slightly-taller one with black hair, is decidedly less formally-dressed - a black cape worn over a red silk kimono, with a rather pretty floral print pattern. The cape is clasped at the unfamiliar girl's throat with a golden eagle brooch, with the Roman numeral I embossed on its frame. Beside the brooch is a character pin - and you blink as you recognize the character itself as none other than Murder Mayumi, scowling at the viewer, with an MM x MM logo plastered in the empty air by her ear.Is...is that Vintage? It can't be her, she looks younger than you. She's even shorter than you, for fuck's sake.But there's no one else around, and she said to meet you here, so--[2/3]
>>34345451>Beside the brooch is a character pin - and you blink as you recognize the character itself as none other than Murder Mayumi, scowling at the viewer, with an MM x MM logo plastered in the empty air by her ear.Midori, please excuse yourself and sneak after Chiaki. You need to see this.
>>34345396I normally don't use my trip in MGNQ threads unless I'm posting a write up, but, I wanted to do this before thread becomes kill:Archive-anon, whoever you are, you are doing Godoka's work. Many thanks for ensuring that all MGNQ threads are promptly and regularly archived!
>>34345451>She's even shorter than you, for fuck's sake.Why can't I hold all these potential imoutos
>>34345451>Rea Ashford, in her own formal dress uniform and what looks like a military cap with...cat ears?Huh.
>After all, I've accepted the burden of that damnable hat, too.We should ask if it was a porn hat when she had it, or was that Kharn's doing
>>34345451"Reginald!" The unfamiliar visitor calls as soon as you approach - and just like that, the fat little crow explodes out from your hair to fling itself right into the kimono-clad girl's outstretched hand. What was surprising - and creepy - was that Reginald didn't exactly fly like birds do. It didn't even so much as flap its stubby little wings.It just barreled through the air straight like some sort of bullet or projectile. You could have sworn you heard a tiny sonic boom right then, too."Who's a good boy? Who is? You are, Reginald! Yes, you!" Vintage coos at the otherwise irate-looking ball of feathers perched upon her hand. "You'll get some treats later, I promise!"...So. She IS Vintage, then. Yep, this day can't get any fucking weirder."Ah, Warmaster Matsuda. Thank you for indulging an old lady her foolish wishes." Vintage smiles at you as you approach, Reginald quickly hopping up to her shoulder as she offers you a handshake. "Ashford, you may go. I think we'll be alright. Give my regards to the rest of the rank, will you?""..." Rea merely nods at this, stiffly saluting the both of you before walking off towards the entrance to the assembly hall. You watch as Vintage smiles fondly after the Vindicare Rank Leader - and it's here that you also notice her leaning upon a cane for support, gripping its brass top with her own free hand."Never a day goes by when I don't miss this place. Or the camaraderie of being in an actual squad." She lets out a wistful sigh, before turning back to you. "It's never the same, you know? Even if you insist on being a member of a squad, to join them on missions. Once they see you with the hat on, it's all they see. They don't see a dependable squad member, they see...a, a rupert. A VIP. Someone who'll order them around, tell them what to do, instead of someone to rely upon in a pinch."...Huh. Well. That sounds bad.[3/4]
>>34345560"Nothing worse than being promoted." Vintage shakes her head, before pulling out what appears to be a slim, black cigarette holder from the depths of her sleeve. "Well, no. There's always something worse." It's here that her refined way of speaking gives way to something rougher, less...disciplined. "Fucking paperwork. Yes, I don't know why I forgot about it. You never do." She shakes her head again, grumbling as she slots a cigarette into her holder. A moment later, and she looks up at you, blinking. "Oh, sorry! I keep forgetting that there are other people than me who smoke down here!" She holds out a pack of opened cigarettes to you. "Please, feel free. I haven't been down here for the longest time, so there are some habits I need to relearn. Like social cues. And gravity."How do you react?...No thanks, I've got my own. So what is this about?Accept the cigarette and light up. Wait for her to make the first move.What the fuck kind of bird is that, lady?

>>34345855>Monday nightAww yeah>>34345900Sunday?
>>34345866because she is flat>>34345895No, it's just that her knees aren't what they're used to be!
>>34344998And with 99% more shading than the average anime frame! Seriously, the shading is awesome. It's obviously not the "hey look I has a gradient tool" kind, but it's still so soft. Traditional hand-drawn perfection.
>>34345926Our past life shot her kneecaps and now she has come back for revenge?
>>34345855Does the First use special Incubator teleport technology to go from the moon to the Earth and back? Or special rockets?Do they use drop pods in a Steel Rain Manuever as outlined in the Codex Puella?
>>34345909i hope it's enyolook at what she did to raleigh when she got her boss new robot limbsLOOK AT ITTHE SERIOUS ONES ARE ALWAYS THE LEWDEST
>>34345926Are there any megucas flatter than Rea?
>>34345963Rea's pretty serious.But Imoutos are not for lewds.I am conflicted.
>>34345944Hahaha!>>34345951Teleportation!>>34345909It's still Enishi!>>34345970No
>>34345990Rea is not imouto. Shes just small
>>34345990Grass, field, ball, etc.
>>34345990could be that she's just the perpetrator for lewds rather than the targetvindicare long range vision a best for lewding
>>34345970Any flatter would be Concave.
>>34345872Decuddly's out, you got me until the thread drops.
>>34346013>It's still Enishi!Fuck yes, Enishi a best
>>34346052Does everyone have an ask.fm now?
>>34346052Has Chiaki ever vomited blood onto Wendy during sex? or vice versa?
>>34346071who is "everyone"?
>>34346052Why is Enishi such a best?
>>34346052Which megucas are even lewder than Enishi?
>>34346071Decu and all of the writefags seem to, same with Hat and Dan.
>>34346052All the Karasawas we've seen so far seem terribly lewd. Is the brother also terribly lewd?
>>34346071We're still trying to talk Midori into it, but most/all of the writefags do, as well as Hat and Dan.>>34346083Yes, both.>>34346086She really is, right?>>34346100Spymaster. Possibly Lotte. Probably the Springfields. Not-so-secretly Dorothy.Midori, obviously.
>>34345842we seem to be perfectly capable of that ourselves
>>34346132No, he has to put up with his creepy sisters' shit all day and he kind of hates it.
>>34346138Does that mean Enishi is lewder than Spiderbutt?
>>34346163Okay, well, no one is lewder than Spiderbutt. I knew I was forgetting someone.
>All the karasawa sisters are lewdRaleigh is in for a wild ride
>>34346208Raleigh IS the wild ride.
>>34346163>>34346186She prefers "Spidere".
>>34346138>Lotte>lewdI have no idea what you're talking aboot.
>>34346264Sweet mother of mercy.
>>34346264Whether or not she's the lewdest in personality, Lotte definitely has the lewdest costume
>>34346264Who drew this?
>>34346432I'm impressed, planning to do more?
>>34346432I didn't know you draw! That's awesome!
>>34346432You sir are a gentleman and a scholar.
>>34346478>>34346479>>34346481A-aw jeez, you guys, thanks! I'm usually not good at drawing people, especially faces, so I usually just do landscape stuffs or silhouettes. I don't draw very often, but every now and then I'll try something when I get a neat idea.This is was supposed to be a part of a future PM title card, but I didn't like how the rest of it was turning out.
>>34346594I still think it's good
>>34346594The face looks fine, keep practicing!
