It was the finals for the American qualifiers, meaning that the event would be held in the Staples Center in Los Angeles for all the world to see. Thankfully, since you live in the area, it wasn't too hard to snag tickets. However, besides Holly and yourself, you had two extra tickets you were wondering what to do with.>Just go with Holly.>Invite 2 friends (specify)>Other

Why don't we check who's already got tickets to go?
>>34495222Okay, so Lucina seems to be a lock, so levaes us to decide who the second friend will be!>Choose wisely!
>>34495620Karen.She pilots a Flag variant, there is no way this could ever end up badly.
>>34495620Let's have Amy come along.
>>34495620karenboss needs some relaxation
>>34495620AmyI like her, I want of see more of her
>>34495620>>Choose wisely!It should be Amy, we don't get to hang out with her very often.
>>34495620>AmyWould've gone for Mac, but he'd probably have mixed feelings if Greco loses.And for Amy the only victor... is JUSCTICE.
>Waifu faggotry right out the batWelp; looks GBFQ is finally over for real.
>>34495813But the waifu is our char
>>34495813What? Over half our team is female, we're likely to include at least one girl in any group we form.
>>34495813Meh, let them have their fun for now. If we were choosing who to bring to a battle I'd be pissed at them, but as it stands it's not really a big deal at the moment.
>>34495813The thing I find funny is Mac had way more votes than anyone else too, beyond Lucina.
>>34495864Well of coarse, Though so far we choose based on what we need.
>>34495863And still not enough for waifuwars. We still need more.
>>34495899I don't disagree. This is merely me wondering why we're even having this second vote.
>>34495813But the waifu is already decided
>>34495952It's Holly isn't it?
>>34495966well seeing how char is time traveling holly yes
>>34495952Its the Charlly
>>34495966How old is Holly again?
>>34496052Final year of middle school I think?
>>34496052old enough to know exactly what she sounds like when talking about balls.
>>34496080Already?Geez, thing will be less interesting in discussion.
>>34496163FUCK. I used the wrong one. Disregard that.
>>34496163>bullying the hollynot okay
....I'm fine with this.>>34496163>>Talk to Karen
>>34496163>Talk to AmyWhat kind of science? I must know!
>>34496190I was okay with it
>>34496190let it beeee
>>34495620Well, you decided to call over Karen and Amy. You were pretty sure they'd both be excited to come along to a major qualifier match and see Charlotte fight in person. Plus, Mac already came with you the first time.Hell, you might even run into Mr. Ral again.You head over to the train station, where you were due to meet the other girls. Sure, you'd drive to the stadium if you could, but seriously, fuck Downtown traffic."Ooooooh, since when did my big brother become such a ladies man?" Holly gave one of those teasing grins. "Going out with three girls? How ambitious of you!""Quiet, twerp." You flick her head. "You're lucky Mom told me to bring you along. I would be a shame if we accidentally left you alone here, like in that McDonalds.""W-we agreed never to talk about that again!" Holly whined."Then keep that moth of yours under control."Once you reach the boarding area, you can see your fellow teammates already there and waiting for you."Ah, Jack, you're early." Lucina nods appreciatively."Thanks. Wait! What's that supposed to be implying?!" You blinks."Hey, Jack!" Amy hugs you and you get a faceful of hair and crimson scarf. "It was really nice of you to invite us!"A chime tings throughout the station, warning passengers that now was the time to board. The four of you walk into the nearest car and take a seat. Very quickly, he monotony of the trip settles in. Holly starts playing gameson her phone, Lucina takes out a brochure about the World Tournament, and Amy is reading a... very scienc magazine. You could tell because the cover had a picture of Nils Nielsen, apparently making yet another scientific breakthrough.>Talk to Holly>Talk to Lucina>Talk to Amy>Other
>>34496234>>Talk to Amy

>>34496234>>Talk to AmyLet's go with the one we're sure is there.
>>34496318would have been more fun than with lucina, i think
>>34496272>>34496260I had a brain fart and accidentally swapped Lucina and Karen's names around.
>>34496387you sure its your brains and not your eyes?
>>34496387>>34496401Like i said, summon your lawyers.
>>34496387So Merc, what procedure you have done, LASIK?
>>34496401>Eye FartHow... how would that even work? This concept frightens and confuses me.
>>34496234"Hey, Amy." You say as you slid over next to yoru teammate. "What are you reading there?""Oh, this?" Amy raises the science magazine she was reading so you can see the cover more clearly. "Just reading up some of Nils Nielsen's latest work."You're a fan of his?" You ask."W-well, I wouldn't say fan!" Amy blushes at the accusation. "It's more like... admiration? I just really like the way he tries to expand the applications of plavsky particles.">Why are you so interested in science?>What's his big discovery this time?>So do you think Charlotte can beat Greco Logan?>Other

>>34496749Ophthalmologist here, it's not that bad.
>>34496511"I never took you to be so into science." You say. "I always saw you as the Hero of the Day sort of girl.""Well, just because you're a hero doesn't mean you can't be a scientist as well!" Amy laughs. "I mean, there's Tony Stark, Ant Man, Reed Richards, Dr.Doom...""Wait, I thought Dr. Doom was a VILLAIN." You blink."Dr. Doom fights for the JUSTICE he believes in, and that's all right in my book." Amy says. "Plus he's really fucking cool.""Yeah, you're right about that." You concede."But yeah. I always figured that if there was going to be anything that could make that hero stuff in comic books and kdis hows possible it wass science! Planning to become a particle physicist someday!""Dang." You whistle. "You ever going to find time to GUnpla battle after that?""Well, Nils Nielsen seems to find a way." Amy chuckles. "So what big new discovery did he make this time/" YOu ask, craning your head to get a look at what Amy was reading."Apparently, he has a new hypothesis that plavsky particles can be directly affected by human emotion." She says.>No fucking way.>That sounds awesome!>[Desire to know more intensifies]>Other
>>34496935>>[Desire to know more intensifies]Is this some Newtype shit?

>>34496935>[Desire to know more intensifies]>Other"Please tell me this means its possible to actually make Innovators or Newtypes. Please."
>>34496935"Really? How does that work?" You ask."Oh, well, it was pretty simple, really." Amy shrugged. "After what he saw in the 7th World Tournament, Nils observed some strange phenomena when fighters experienced cases of extreme emotional states. So, he decided to full up a room with plavsky particles, put in people suffering from various emotional states, and see what happened.""And?""He saw that the subjects that showed the strongest emotional outbursts actually changed the energy charge and composition of the plavsky particles immediately around them!" Amy beams."So, what, can plavsky particles make us into Newtypes or Innovators?""Hah!" Amy laughs at the reference. "I dunno. It's all very new, and just a hypothesis. But I want to see how far we can take that line of research! Who knows, maybe we can make actual working Gundams, or even make Gunpla really alive!">Starting to sound a bit mad scientist now...>I eagerly await that day.>Other
>>34497081No, peaks are achieved at maximum anger/rage, courage/bravery, and malaise/sadness. Probably some other states.

>>34497277> I eagerly await that dayHow soon before we get Psycoframe resonance and go BEYOND THE TIME?
>>34497277"And I am eagerly awaiting that day." You smile."So am I!" Amy beams. "It would be sooo cool if my Deathscythe Rozen could do all my cool poses with me!"Aha, typical Amy.The train whines as it engages its brakes, letting everybody know that it is reaching its stop. You quickly glance at the sign and realize it's time for you all to get off. Grabbing Holly's hand, you motion for Lucina and Amy to follow you."So.. this is Charlotte's big moment." Lucina says simply as you head for hte Stadium."That's right." You nod. "It's her against the second best fighter in the country.""I see you already think she's going to win." Lucina smirks."As if I'd root for anybody else." You chuckle."Too bad Greco isn't a cute girl...." Holly shrugs."There, there. We can only dream." Amy says, patting Holly's head.You manage to reach the stadium rather quickly, so you've actually got a lot of extra time before the match is set to start. Right now there were some preliminary show matches going on to keep the audience entertained. Then again, with the backstage pass Mr. Ral had given you, you could actually head to the fighters' lounge and maybe meet up with Charlotte, or some other famous fighter...">Head for your seats.>Head for the fighters' lounge.>Other
>>34497736>>Head for the fighters' lounge.Why wouldn't weWould it just be us or can we take or friends?
>>34497736>>Head for the fighters' lounge.
>>34497736>Head for the fighters' lounge.Couldn't hurt to try, right?
>>34497736>>Head for the fighters' lounge.Gotta wish best girl luck
>>34497736>Grabbing Holly's hand>implying Holly isn't the waifu
>>34497793>But Lucina isn't fighting Greco
>>34497797too soon.Wait several more years....
>>34497736>Head for the fighters' lounge.
>>34497847She's only like a year or two younger than Jack
>>34497736>>Head for your seats.
Jack doesn't have a character portrait right?I was hoping to ask Decu to draw something for this
>>34497935I requested a scene of Char and Lucina both kissing him from last week's thread. He skipped it, Going to try again.
>>34497935Just imagine him to be a much younger version of Pixy.
>>34497964Because you didnt provide references.
>>34497964Including the character references would probably help.
>>34497973Belkan good looks indeed...
>>34497992>>34498006Thanks, I'll go do that next time around but I have no face claim of Jack. So the last part is hard.
>>34498078Probably this: >>34497973And make sure you write that Char and Lucina are druuunk.
>>34497736"Hey, lets go check out the fighters' lounge." You sya."Are we really going to allowed in there?" Lucina asks."Well, thanks to a certain friend I met a while ago, I basically have a golden ticket!" You grin, holing up Ral's badge.The guard moves forward in an attempt to stop your group, but you flash the badge at him and he immediately backs off, even going so far as to open the door for you. It felt so nice to have connections.Inside the lounge itself, you notice that there's a lot fewer fighters in here than last time. That was easily explainable in that most of the eliminated fighters didn't see any point in showing up. You only saw the ones that did, as well as a few VIPs that wanted a better eye on the action.>roll 1d20

>>34498120Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like you can find Greco or Charlotte around anywhere. You presume that they're off in some private ready area preparing themselves for the big fight ahead. However, what you DO find is the legendary Ricardo Fellini himself, sitting int he special box area that overlooks the stadium."Is that..." Amy gasps."I think it is." Lucina nods."Who?" Holly raises an eyebrow.>Go meet him!>Nah, you don't want to bother him.>Other
>>34498297>>Go meet him!
>>34498297>"Who?" Holly raises an eyebrow.Oh Holly.....>Go meet him!
>>34498297>Go meet him!
>>34498297>Go meet him!Okay, play it cool, don't freak out like we did when we met Ral. Just say hello and that we're a big fan of him, then let him go back to whatever he was doing before we interrupted.
>>34498297>Go meet him!meet the shit outta him.
>>34498297>>Go meet him!Can Jack out playboy, playboy?
>>34498364Fellini is a faithful husbando of Kirara now. ....maybe not, but i imagine he become more faithful now.
>>34498364The playboy has already been tamed, though
>>34498398>>34498406I keep forgetting this is after the show
>>34498350If it doesn't have to do with Balls, Holly doesn't care. I wonder if we could get her interested in the Moebius, too. That's basically the Cosmic Era's (arguably) less silly equivalent to the Ball, it might let her have a bit more variety in her collection.
>>34498364He's well on his way on getting there...
>>34498425Well, maybe he will woo and flirt beautiful ladies sometimes, but Kirara will always on his heart, methink.>>34498440Moebius zero is less shitty, yes. But standard moebius is just a... fighter in all but name.
>>34498501It's a weird-looking fighter, though. I figure that should appeal to her affection for unusual designs.
>>34498579I'm sure Holly has Mr.Ball gunpla too.
>>34497296Maximum rabu-rabu, obviously.Do you even Domon?
>>34498649You mean LOVE, SORROW AND ALL MY ANGER?
>>34498649I think that'd tend to fall under rage or courage, though.I mean, love is the propellant, not the projectile. nawmean? It's the fuel, not the vehicle. It needs to work in tandem.
>>34498688No, I mean that thing that happens when one realizes that they are "a guy who's ill-at-ease and knows only how to fight. That's why it's been hard for me to say this. I love you! I want to be with you! RAAAAAAAAAIN!"
>>34498297"Come on! Let's go say hi!" You say, walking toward him."Are you sure?" Lucina asks cautiously. "What if he's busy?""Nah, I heard he's a pretty laid back guy." You say."Um, okay." Amy says nervously. "Ohmygod I had such a HUGE crush on him when I was in middle school....""Sounds like you still have that crush." Holly points out.As you get closer you can see Fellini look rather tired... almost bored, even, as if the fights going on right now weren't even pinging on his radar.Suddenly, however, you find yourself pushed to the front of the group, Lucina, Amy, and Holly taking cover behind you, quietly urging you on. Of course."Um, excuse me, Mr. Fellini?""Hm?" The Italian fighter cranes his head back and gives a polite smile. "Ah, another fan of mine? And he brings three lovely ladies with him as well!"You almost swear you could hear at least one of the girls swoon behind you."Erm, my name's Jack Foulke, and these are my friends Lucina, Amy, and my little sister Holly.""S-s-such a pleasure to meet you!" Amy blurts out."It's an honor." Lucina nods respectfully.Holly just glares at Fellini."You're not gonna do anything funny to big sis Lucina and Amy, are you?""Haha, of course not!" Fellini laughs. "You're all a bit too young, and in either case, my girlfriend would kill me if she found out!"Ah, that's right. Fellini was in a relationship with Kirara, the Gundam Idol. You wonder how that's working out for him."So what brings you out here?" Fellini says, his eyes wandering back down to the fights below."Well, one of the finalists, Charlotte, is a friend of ours. We were coming here to cheer her on." You say."What a coincidence!" Fellini laughs. "Greco is a longtime friend of mine, so I can to cheer him on as well!""Well this is a bit awkward.""No worries! We're all friends in Gunpla!" Fellini laughs and pats the seat next to him. "Come on, no sense in all of you standing!"(cont)
>>34498901"S-s0 Fellini, I heard you already won the Italian finals?" Amy asks."I heard it was in record time, too." Lucina adds. "That was some very impressive swordplay.""Oh ladies, please!" Fellini chuckles, his face turning red from all the praise he was getting from two cute girls. He still couldn't totally erase his playboy past. "It wasn't as easy as it looked. If he had predicted what I was doing, or just been a little faster, things wouldn't have ended well. I took a big gamble, there.""But it was an AMAZING gamble!" Amy squeaked."You win big or you lose big." Fellini says, tilting his head at an odd angle. You could see Amy totally get sucked into his charms, while even Lucina seemed to be reddening a bit. Holly just rolled her eyes at the whole spectacle.>Ask him who he thinks will win the American finals.>Ask him if he knew the famous Sei Iori.>Challenge him to a Gunpla battle!>Other

>>34499212>]It's less of a grudge and more of a dislike of them so won't the best Italian Gunpla fighter be a good sparing partner?
>>34498936"So, who do you think is going to win the finals?" You ask."Well, I usually don't like making predictions about fights, but if I have to.... I'm going to stick with my buddy Greco." Fellini laughs. "I've always been dreaming of the both of us facing off at the World Tournament. But alas, the unfortunate thing is that the American qualifiers are just so much more competitive than in Italy.""That's true." You nod. Feelini has been consistently able to get into the World Tournament, since Italy had a fairly small fighter pool, and even smaller number of fighters who could stand a chance against Fellini. America, on the other hand, always had hundreds of thousands of fighters aiming to take the top spot. You're surprised Greco is able to consistently get into the final qualifier rounds at all."Well, since she's my buddy, I'm going to have to go with Charlotte." You nod. "And who knows, I might actually get to fighter her in the World Tournament!""Really now?" Fellini raises an eyebrow. "Special entry?""Well, it's not confirmed, yet." You shrug. "I gotta win it.""I see, I see..." Fellini nods with grin.>Ask him what Tallgeese Valkyrie is capable of.>Ask him for some fighting tips.>Show him your Gunpla.>Gunpla Challenge!>Other

>>34499481>>Gunpla Challenge!But he can see how we fight and give us tips on it
>>34499481No, but it certainly helps to know what someone needs to work on. Otherwise you're tossing out generic advice that might not actually help.

>>34499629ya that dude needs to learn to samefag better
>>34499278"Anyways, you want to see our Gunpla?" You ask."I'd love to!" Fellni smiles. "One good trait for any fighter is to see as many different Gunpla builds as he can!"You take out your Jesta Juggler and careffully place it in Fellini's hands."Ah, a Jesta. Don't see many of these." Fellini nods. "Oh, and a GN Drive, too? Sneaky!""My school is highly competitive, so I need a trump card in case they try anything." You say."Understandable. Interesting how you can also utilize two Balls. That gives your suit a great amount of flexibility, and they're more resilient than funnels, too.""Thanks!" You beam."And I helped!" Holly joins in."Uh huh. I can tell from your hands that building is in your blood." Fellini chuckles. ""R-really?" Holly blinks, quickly hiding her hands behind her back."Yep!" Fellini laughs."Here's mine!" Amy says, taking out her Deathscythe Rozen."And min as well." Lucina says, her Exia Cuirassier in her hands."Interesting builds." Fellini nods as he examines the Gunpla. "Very interesting. I'm liknig this custom scythe. Seems to have a lot of specialist applications. This Exia is solidly built, but could use some more tweaking. So far it's only good for speeding forward and cutting things up."Isn't that all it needs to do?" Lucina tilts her head."Well, yes and no." Fellini smiles. "You also have to take into account what the enemy using, and if they know what you're planning to do, too. You have to be prepared to fight in any situation." "Okay." Lucina nods.>Ask him for more tips.>Gunpla challenge.>Wait for the main event to start.>Other
>>34499278>>34499629We can ask him for a battle after the finals match, and ask him for pointers.

>>34499860Italian Dandy is bored, but I don't think they have Gunpla Battle tables in the lounges.An invite to Greco and Fellini to drop by Mason's for a game might be better.
>>34499736>Wait for the main event to start.I just want to get to Char fight already.
>>34499925this.Or to Charlotte palace.
>>34499925They so have better things to do than go 50-100+ miles out of their way.The best time is now while he's uninterested.
>>34499925Isn't he bored because he's waiting and they have those things everywhere. Like that time, that Kansai Gunpla builder fault that wanna be Meijin.
Trying out giving Jack a face. How's it look ?
>>34499925>>34499948But aren't these assumptions if they do?
>>34500047Add an EFSF patch to the jacket and I'd call that a Jack face.
>>34500047Awww hes cute. I could definitely see why he gets all the bitches.
>>34500047He needs patches on that jacketBut it good, great even
>>34500047Now i have a face for my request for Decu to draw.
>>34500047I love it. Just the right mix of boyishness with ace pilot.
>>34500093>>34500116Now with slightly more patches !
>>34500501Now I want to see a bunch of AC patches on him too.
>>34500578Those would go on the back, which we can't see in the image, though.Also, I vote that the next time we have a free day in quest we actually go out and buy this jacket.
I really need to set some time aside to build my gunpla. Still have three sitting in my backlog and I owe you guys a Shiva.
>>34499736"So, any tips for an aspiring World Tournament finalist?" You ask."Well, if I learned anything from these past few years..." Fellini leans back. "Always keep a trick up your sleeve, and always assume your opponent has one, too. Other than that, be wary of your terrain and be prepared to exploit it whenever you can. A shockingly large number of fighters forget that they can do this.""I'll keep it in mind." You nod."And the most important thing." Fellini gives you a hard look. "Never go easy on your opponent. Like, I'm not saying to completely smash them in the ground, but they worked to get to where they are, so the very least you can give them is a good fight, you get me?""Yeah... I think I do." You nod."Then you're set!" Fellini laughs. "People always think that there's some special trick to get into the pros, but all it really takes is to remember the basics!""God he's so cool." Amy whispers.Finally, the match looks like it's about to begin. The entire stadium darkens and the crowd quiets down. Spotlights appear below as the announcer speaks up.Wait a minute, haven't you heard that voice before?"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ARE YOU READY FOR A GUNPLA FIGHT!?" The announcer bellows.The entire crowd screams their affirmation."Well now you're going to get one!" He yells. "Today, in this final round for the American Qualifiers, we have the one, the only, GRECO LOGAN!" The crowd roars as the huge man steps up to the central battle table."And on the other end, we have yet another upstart! Will this be a replay of two years ago? Who knows! Let's see CHARLOTTE RAFALE!"(cont)
>>34500146>>34500511>>34500523>>34500569>>34500605>>34500753Thanks guys. Looks I got it right.>>34500578>>34500591Now I can imagine his dad handing him one of those patches. Maybe the jacket was his dad's even ?
>>34501014You then see Charlotte step up to the table amid cheers and applause. She's looking nervous, though you suppose it's less the upcoming battle and more just all those cameras in her face. No way she was going to stay incognito now."Dang, you're lucky to be her friend." Fellini whistles with a bit of envy. Thankfully, you're too distracted by the events below to really call him out on it.Finally, it looks like the battle itself has started, as the Krimson Kampfer and the Tallgeese Valkyrie speed toward each other.>Focus on the Tallgeese>Focus on the Kampfer
>>34501078>>Focus on the Tallgeese
>>34501078>Focus on the Kampfer
>>34501078>>Focus on the KampferI hope no one at school says anything about her being in our club
>>34501078>>Focus on the TallgeeseStill want to figure out the shield thingie.
>>34501046>Maybe the jacket was his dad's even ?Defintely. I like the idea of Pixy giving Jack his jacket before we go to the world championship.>>34501078>Focus on the TallgeeseI still want to figure out that trick of his.
>>34501078>Focus on the TallgeeseIs anyone else feeling disappointed we didn't fight the dandy? or am I the only one? Also focus on Greco since we didn't see his trick
>>34501078>>Focus on the Tallgeesesee if we can figure Greco's trick.
>>34501078>>Focus on the TallgeeseThis is probably going to be our last chance to see that ability of the tallgeese.
>>34501119Be patient anon, we can try challenge him after this match. If we can't sway him after this then i'll join you in disappointment.
>>34501078>>Focus on the KampferBecause we'd roll another one on the Tallgeese matter.
>>34501152Well I mean in this thread because of limited time since we have to go through char's battle-congratulating her- and maybe get a fight but I doubt it..
>>34495222>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com /archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Hunter%20Quest (Complete)Merc I've been meaning to tell you, it's a little thing but there's a space right after the .com here, I'm assuming you've been copy/pasting the OP since it's been there for a while
>>34501078>Focus on the Tallgeese
>>34501078As the fight starts, you decide to keep a closer eye on the Tallgeese Valkyrie. You were still interested in that weird ability it had with its shield.>roll 1d20
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>34501382

Rolled 10 (1d20)>>34501382

Gimped by rolls. We will never make it in the big leagues.
>>34501406>>34501407>>34501408Boy, sure glad we focused on him.
>>34501424Does it matter? if we chose Char it would have been the same
>>34501424>implying it'd have been different if we focused on the kampfer
>>34501078Welp, gotta run, thanks Merc. Also remember to apply antiseptic eyedrops and DO NOT RUB your eyes.Btw, any problems with having writefics at the end of the thread? Working on something for maybe next thread.
>>34501445Would we have been able to learn anything from watching the Kampfer? We know Char's tricks already, we're not likely to get any new ideas from observing her fight. I mean, she's almost certainly got one final trick in reserve that she hasn't told anyone about, but I don't think she's going to break it out now when she hasn't even shown Carnage Mode yet.
>>34501406>>34501407>>34501408>>34501410>>34501414All this goddamn mediocrity.
so dice being unfriendly again?
>>34501696When were they EVER friendly after VMQ1?
>>34501696At least we didn't roll 1's. We probably would have gone blind with the last image burned on to the retinas of our eyes being that of a greased up Greco Roman violating our waifus.
>>34501760>implying that's not the best end.
>>34501760Or maybe we bumped something on head and knocked out for entire match.>>34501721hey, i recall once or twice they took pity and give us some good roll.
>>34501760Fuck meant Logan. Greco Logan. Damnit.
>>34501817We all make that slip, man. Don't think too much of it.
>>34501829And all that will be left for us is jerking off to our gunplas with Mac and Jake while we use pillows to cover our ourselves...
>>34501408The fight begins in a ruined city as the Tallgeese and Kampfer close in on each other. Charlotte lets off dual bursts of vulcan fire as she approaches, preventing Greco from firing his heavy beam cannon as he raises his shield for defense. Bullets ping and deflect off the armored surface as both Gunpla get ever closer. At the last moment, the Tallgeese draws its beam saber and attacks in a horizontal slash that would have cleaved the Kampfer in two.However, Charlotte was not going to fall for a basic feint like that. With an increase in power, the Kampfer somersaults over the Tallgeese. As it does so, you can see the Kampfer quickly swapping out an arm vulcan for an wrist rocket launcher. While still behind the Tallgeese, the Kamper launches a single armor piercing rocket. The Tallgeese spins around, only able to bring up its shield for protection. Against a rocket like that, it probably wasn't going to survive-Then you saw the shield flash blue as the rocket was richocheted. No, not a ricochet, it was REFLECTED back. Charlotte barely has enough time to dodge her own attack, backstepping and putting more distance between herself and the Tallgeese. Now things seemed to have become even again. The Kampfer and Tallgeese hover around the map in circles, cautiously waiting for the other to make the first move. You can see the Kampfer eject its current wrist weapons, and the binder on its back attaches two more that you haven't seen before.The Tallgeese moves first, shooting a blast from its heavy beam cannon. Charlotte dodges, the move was more to force her to break her position than to really hit. The Tallgeese boosts forward again, reverting back to its sword and shield combo.Charlotte fires again, spitting energy bolts from a beam vulcan. Again, the Tallgeese's shield flashes blue, but the energy spatters against the shield without bouncing off, the energy merely causing parts of the shield to glow orange from the heat.(cont)
>>34502164"Ah, so she's figured it out." Fellini grins.You just keep watching. It seems that with her suspicions confirmed, Charlotte stops firing her beam vulcan and draws a heat axe to block the Tallgeese's incoming beam saber, causing a bright flash. With the Tallgeese's melee arm occupied, the Kampfer brings up its free arm, which is revealed to be a flamethrower as it spits blue flames all over the Tallgeese and its shield. The Tallgeese is forced to ditch the flaming shield as it begins to melt under the strain, leaving it open to attack as the Kampfer draws both heat axes and begins wailing on the Tallgeese. Greco does a good job blocking and parrying Charlotte's dual attacks with just a single beam saber, but eventually, it's just too much. First goes an arm, then a leg, and then a head, and eventually, the Tallgeese Valkyrie is reduced to plastic chunks."Aw, damn." Fellini sighs. "I was hoping he'd be able to pull it out with that new trick of his, too.""What was it?" You ask. All you could tell was that it had something to do with repelling physical attacks."Ah, I can't tell on others' secrets, especially a friend's." Fellini grins. "It was a good trick, but poor Greco really should have saved it for the finals. Maybe little Miss Rafale wouldn't have figured it out by then...With that, Fellini stands up. "It was good weeing you all. Hope we'll meet each other again in Japan." Fellini winks at you before leaving."He's so dreamy..." Amy sighs."He certainly has his charm." Lucina agrees. "He's kinda a wierdo." Holly frowns.You all laugh as you head for the stairs to congratulate Charlotte.>And that's it for tonight! I'm ending it a bit early to give my eyes a break. As always, next thread next week. Don't forget to catch Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and PJ Witches on Friday! Might run something this Monday too, so keep an eye out!
>>34502182I only just caught up to the thread, thanks for running!
>>34502182Thanks for the thread Merc.And this is why I'm disappointed what was the reason again why we couldn't challenge him?.
>>34502182Thanks for the thread Merc see you next time
>>34499768>>34499769>>34499783>>34499808>>34499810>>34499946What was the point of waiting?
>>34502182Thanks for the thread merc.Now we need to brainstorm with Holly on what that was.
>>34502182Thanks Merc.So PJ Witches switched to friday now? Too bad.
>>34502245Physical projectile reflection, bad against heat.probably particle fuckery?
>>34502428Will we ever have a chance to fight the Italian dandy.I think a lot of people assumed that we would have asked him to fight us after Char's match.
>>34502182Of course she wins. I don't know why I thought it would be any different.Thanks for running merc.
>>34502460Because your hoping she would lose?I was hoping it wasn't such a curve stomp (maybe a little harsh) but it certainly wasn't a close match
>>34502483Actually, yeah I was. The guy she was fighting had load more experience than her, and yet like every other fight she is in, it was nothing but a curb-stomp.
>>34502525I was expecting her to win (though why the anons decide to watch her match expecting otherwise is beyond me) but yeah I was expecting her to at least sweat a bit.
We didn't even get an authograph from the Italian Dandy as a consolation prize for Mac. Some bro we turn out to be.Though maybe Lucina or Amy got one while Jack was riveted in the match?
>>34502560Because we wanted to stop talking and just focus on Char's match
>>34502558Its really disheartening. Its like a guy who is alright at HS level tennis having Andre Agassi in his prime as your "Rival".
>>34502594I'm more depressed we didn't had a chance to fight the Italian Dandy. He just up and left when we could havd had a chance to play with our new toys
>>34502616I'd chalk that up to Merc just having lasers to the face and needing time to recuperate.
>>34502651Fair point, still missed opportunities and we have to wait another week. I kind of want to get into a fight.
>>34502669>I kind of want to get into a fight.Me too. NoScope was kind of a let down, and I want to have and honorable duel, 1v1 more than anything.
>>34502695Noscope was fun in it's own way the ending was certainly interesting. I just wanted to use our balls in a more offensive capacity.
>>34502558I suspect it's a case of an old dog leaning too hard on a new trick.
>>34502756regardless the fight itself was too much of a curbstomp, even the samurai dude from build fighters sweated a bit near the end with his determination.
>>34502740Fighting the sniper was nice, but at the very end we just ganged up on the last guy. It was a smart move, given his gunpla's power, but it was still kinda meh. Having the balls work with us in a more proactive way would be cool. Plus I really want to whip out our GN Drive at an appropriately dramatic moment.
>>34502791I thought it was kind of cool though kicking the ball I felt a little bad. But yeah I wished our balls didn't have the accuracy or stormstoopers at times.
>>34502791Maybe Merc will put in that weird Gouf Custom some guy on here made a while back and we can get a good face stomp in on it.Then when we're feeling cocky about the win, we'll get rekt in the next match and learn a valuable lesson or something.
>>34502182Thanks for running, Merc.
>>34502867I would rather have the Gouf kick our asses personally, then have a lesson about being true to our selves or some crap.
>>34502887I rather it had been from an expert
>>34502929>implying he isn't a former world champ
>>34502945The Blue Giant?Sure if it's him yeah, that would be okay.
>>34502945I'm pretty sure if he was we would be seeing a lot weirder stuff in the tournaments we've been to.
What are you guys even talking about?
>>34502985I was think the guy would have won, got everything he wanted, but then seen how his lust for victory ultimately left him empty and unfulfilled. So he just made something ridiculous as part of his spiritual mending and now walks the world having fun fun with his gunpla.
>>34502887>"How the hell did you lose? It's literally just a Gouf with spindly arms and some boosters for hands!">"I... don't know... I keep playing the match over and over in my head..."/flashback to his opponents facecam stream during match/>"HAHA! I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOIN!"
>>34503092"Gunpla has changed. It's no longer about pride, fun or creativity. It's an endless series of proxy matches, fought by min-maxers and purists. Gunpla, and its consumption of dosh, has become a well-oiled machine. Gunpla has changed. Bandai tagged kits carry Bandai tagged boosters, use Bandai tagged builds. particles inside their kits enhance and regulate their abilities. Build control. Information control. Streaming control. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. Gunpla has changed. The age of creativity has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from unique builds and fresh ideas. And he who controls the title, controls history. Gunpla has changed. When the torney scene is under total control, Gunpla... becomes routine. I broke that cycle Jack. I broke that cycle and became a kitbasher... Come, lets match out Gunpla in battle. Lets escape routine."
