You choose Sayaka to accompany you inside Lucius' Silent Room. While Yuma would certainly be able to shut down the Eversor if she ever tried anything - her performance during Haruka's seeing certainly proved that - you feel just a bit more comfortable with your Equerry watching your back rather than the Culexus.This also eliminates you getting distracted by another one of Murderface's sudden raging tantrums. The last outburst stung more painfully than anything your body's thrown at you - in fact, it still hurt even now, a dull ache throbbing slowly in the back of your eyes. Another one of those during a crucial moment might be everything Lucius would need to turn an interrogation into a murder. Or a suicide.
>>35299452You voice your decision, and Yuma nods, taking Lucius' Soul Gem from a pocket somewhere in her hardsuit and offers it to you. If she was disappointed with your choice, she doesn't seem to show it - not that you could see her face through her visor, anyway. "Understood, Warmaster." She says to you in a vox-corrupted murmur. "I'll be right here if you need me."You nod in return, and just as you take Lucius' Soul Gem from her gloved hand - it's quickly replaced by a rather cute-looking character lunchbox, shaped after a pudgy green cat mascot. "Your lunch." Sayaka withdraws her own gloved hand, her eyes still cold and narrowed at the stunned Culexus. "Kyoko made it for you. Again, not like you care." It's here that your Equerry turns to you and nods. "Come on, Murderface. Let's get this show on the road.""...I do care," Yuma says again, her voice so low that even the vox speakers on her helmet is unable to rob it of emotion or warmth. "Tell it to someone who gives a shit what you care about anymore, Culexus," Sayaka's reply could've been issued from an Anima Speculum for how cruel it sounded. "Now do your job, which you're lucky to have because everyone else who can is dead."The Silent Room's door slams shut behind you as Sayaka ushers you across the treshold, removing any chance for the Culexus to reply. In front of you, at the end of a very short corridor, is another door - similar to the one you just passed by, but thicker. Obviously built to keep a more dangerous prisoner in.[1/2]
>>35299459"Silent Rooms for Eversors are basically two rooms in one," Your Equerry says, seeing your confusion. "Just in case the first one fails for some reason. This one in particular," she emphasizes by tapping her booted heel on the floor, "...is the back-up."...Huh. Well, that's handy. But shouldn't the first door be just as reinforced as the second one, in that sense?"Not necessarily. Any Eversor can easily rip this thing off its hinges, sure," Sayaka points towards the door the both of you just entered through. "But the Silent Engine here is on a different setting than the one keeping Lucius nice and frosty in there." She gestures towards the inner door.How different?"Well, for one, the moment the room detects that the prisoner's made it to this particular room without proper authorization, it activates at full, focused intensity." Your Equerry offers you a dark grin. "Enough that the prisoner's soul gem melts in its casing."..."Overkill, I know, but that's how it's always been. And no one's been able to break out of one ever since we had these constructed." Sayaka steps past you, towards what looks like a touchpad set into the corridor wall. She holds up her own Soul Gem to it, the bauble in her hand a startlingly-clear and blindingly-bright blue. The touchpad glows in unison, before beeping. "Focus the Silent Room's effects on the prisoner only, please. The Warmaster and I are coming in for interrogation." Sayaka says aloud, as if speaking to the device in front of her."Compliance," a speaker set beside the touchpad responds in a mechanical voice.[2/3]
>>35299481"Well, here we are, then." Sayaka says as her Soul Gem manifests once more on her midriff. ...That always looked stupid to you, but you never thought of pointing it out. It's probably a sore point for your Equerry already. "Ready?"How do you react?Nod, and follow Sayaka inside. Time to get this interrogation started.Are you naturally this much of a bitch, or did you have to work on it? Because you're starting to treat Yuma as if she answers to Murderface and has a drinking problem.Ask Sayaka what she thinks about Lucius' trap, see if she has a plan of her own.

[x]Ask Sayaka whats up with her and Yuma?
I actually wonder how other character would react if they learned of Yumas mindrape of Chiaki/"Braids". Especially if they also learned that it might have been partially responsible of all the shit that happened with Kharn and WN.Would Sayaka be concerned that if Yuma can do it to one, she could do it to others. Actually at this point she might even care enough about Chiaki that the fact Chiaki was mindraped would upset her. Well, upset her a little bit atleast.Will Kyoko be upset considering Chiaki is her friend too.What would QB think about the fact that Yuma failed her duty and goes around mindraping people.Would Wendy or Midori go berserk and try to kill Yuma.Mami would probably belong to the group that says "Yuma did nothing wrong".

>>35299493This concludes our first voting period of the day! Thank you for your participation!
>Dealing with Oriko>They settle it in smash
>>35299582Yeah, but her speech implies Sayaka might have a clue about the degree to which Yuma did most certainly nothing wrong.
>tfw recompense for Yuma's sins
>>35299725I figured it was because Yuma kept giving Kyouko the cold shoulder, which made Kyouko sad and therefore Sayaka mad
>>35299725I bet everyone knows about the mindrape, but Mami convinced everyone to be quiet. For our own good ofcourse.
>>35299582But I wouldn't think Sayaka would know to what extent she did do everything wrong.
>>35299493[x]Ask about Yuma without trying to provoke Sayaka for once.

>>35300103It was originally the worrrll
it's amazing how much better googly eyes make everything
>>35299511 >>35299531You nod. You're ready, but there's something you want to ask first. Namely, what does she think of Lucius calling you out like this, offering her help all of a sudden? You know it's a trap, but what does Sayaka think about it? ...And does she have a plan of her own going into this?Sayaka blinks here, looking at you in silence for a moment before shrugging. "Personally? I think Lucius wants one last chance to see her mission through, Murderface. She's seen the endgame, and it's her rotting in her until we decide her execution date. She won't be looking to escape - for someone like her, someone without an actual Officio, she knows she'll be hunted wherever she goes the moment she sets foot outside our Headquarters. And it won't be just us, either, that'll be doing the hunting." It's here that your Eversor makes a face. "A lot of the other Incubators owe Kyuubey favors. Favors they'll jump at the chance to repay."...So the other Officios will get involved?"Likely as not. Kyuubey's gonna want to save those favors for something much more important, knowing him." Sayaka shrugs again. "But if he wants to, I don't see why not. And Lucius will have worse things than our own girls hunting her down."Like what? You ask, unable to help yourself. "The wolves, for one. Sixth Officio. Other crazies like her." Your Equerry taps her temple. "Batshit insane kinda people."Huh. Well. That's something to know."And as far as a plan goes..." Sayaka shakes her head. "I'm following your lead this time, Murderface. Whatever you say goes, as much as that really sucks to say." She offers you a grin. "Warmaster rules and all that crap. But if I can just break my own rules and suggest something to a ratified, superior-ranking officer?"Yeah? What's that?[1/2]
>>35299892>>35300076Pinky is pleased.
>>35300152Yeah? What's that?"Carry out her execution here and now," Sayaka's grin fades, her expression growing serious. "Use your gun or have me do it, I don't care. Whatever she says, whatever intel she offers in exchange for whatever she wants you to do, give her the death she deserves, Murderface. Quick and clean. We can just wait for Mami's lead to solidify."...That seems a bit extreme."You'd be doing her a favor, Murderface. Trust me on this." Sayaka reaches out to tap a finger on the touchpad - and the inner door begins its slow, grinding way up into the ceiling. Heavy gears and machinery clicking and creaking somewhere in the room at the effort. "Eversors are trained for direct assault and personnel destruction. We hate using deception and dirty tricks - we leave that to the other ranks. I'm sure Lucius hates herself for what she did back at the stadium, and she definitely despises herself for what she's doing now."Still--"You asked for my take on things, Murderface. That's it. You're free to take it or leave it, I don't care either way." With a brief flash of light, a sheathed blade appears at her waist - not the brutish, mass-produced brutality of Blueberry Cheesecake Brownie, but the weapon that came with her costume - an elegant sword with an ornate hand guard. "Whoever wears the hat wears the authority. And the responsibility."...Not like that isn't true, you remark. But why does it sound bad when she says it?"I have no fucking idea what you're talking about, Murderface." Sayaka replies, smiling as the doorway to Lucius' Silent Room is finally revealed. "No idea at all."You shake your head, and follow her through. Into the Silent Room of the Eversor that had whored the lives of her squadmates and friends on a holy quest to kill you.[2/3]
>>35300173Your first impression upon entering Lucius' Silent Room - at least, its inner chamber - is that there IS indeed a very striking difference to a Silent Room meant for Eversors, and those meant for other ranks. Instead of the thinly-cushioned gurney-bed that Midori had lain in, her limbs lashed down with leather straps, Lucius is instead chained to the farthest wall, thick links of solid black steel clamping down on her wrists and ankles. Where the floor to Midori's Silent Room was tiled with ceramic and was clean enough for you to sit down, this one in particular is cold, gray steel, with grills cut into the floor edges - probably to drain water whenever the occupant is hosed down, or made to bleed.Midori's Silent Room was a holding facility meant for inconvenient guests. Lucius' Silent Room, in contrast, is a prison. The only similarity here that you can see is that Lucius is also wearing the same featureless white gown that you've seen Midori wear. The same gown that Haruka had also worn, during the seeing you asked her to do.Well, no. That's not the only similarity.Like Midori, Lucius too is unconscious. Hanging slack from her chains, her head bowed. Unmoving."Good, they hosed her down before we got here." Sayaka nods with satisfaction as the heavy metal door slams shut behind the both of you. "Could've at least gotten us some chairs or something, though."...Yeah. Chairs would've been nice."Nothing for it, let's get this done." The Equerry nods towards the prisoner. "Go and wake Sleeping Beauty up, Warmaster. Or do you want me to do it for you?" She says, meaningfully cracking her knuckles.You know how to do it, of course. All you need to do is to briefly touch your Soul Gem to Lucius' own, a brief transference of energy to jolt her awake.Wake Lucius up yourself.Have Sayaka do it.

>>35300204 >>35300207 >>35300229You decide to wake Lucius up yourself. You've done this before, so it's not exactly like you're going at it blind.Sayaka merely shakes her head at this. "Like I keep saying, Midori doesn't count. What a Callidus does after being forcibly taken out of Silent sleep is completely different from what an Eversor does in the same circumstances. Just because Midori woke up all giggly like a drunk prom date doesn't mean Lucius will."Yeah? Well, what would an Eversor do, then, if Sayaka's this hell-bent on giving you a fucking primer on how Eversors are so fucking awesome and cool? You can't help but snipe at her here. You know your Equerry means well, but she's beginning to get on your nerves, what with them already being raw from Murderface's tantrums."..." Sayaka glances at the unconscious Lucius, then at you, before stepping forward and placing herself between you and the chained Eversor. "On the count of three, wake Lucius up. Watch carefully."What? Can't she just tell you--"Some things are better off being shown rather than being told," Sayaka says lightly as she turns to face Lucius, her caped back towards you. "Now, do as I say, Warmaster. Please."...Fine. Whatever. Sure.You sigh and hold your Soul Gem a few millimeters from Lucius' scarlet own. Careful to avoid the sharp spikes dotting the casing of the dark crystallization of your soul. You call out to your Equerry that you're ready."Alright." Sayaka nods, and you see her unsheathe her own sword. The glow of the harsh fluorescent lighting glinting on the impossibly-shiny blade. "Three. Two. One--"The moment you carefully touch your Soul Gem to Lucius' - forcing a gasp from your lips as a chill slithers down your spine at the brief sensation of electricity - is when all hell breaks loose.[1/2]
>>35301114>tfw kirika dead
>>35301178From placid, umoving unconsciousness, the chained Eversor explodes into a frothing berserker rage - one that has her springing forward in a killing lunge, fingers curled into claws, teeth bared in a snarling, roaring rictus. The movement is so sudden, so violent, that the momentum of it carrying not only a body that should be sluggish and uncooperative from soulless sleep but also the impossibly-heavy chains clamped around its wrists, its ankles, its neck.Before she can complete her killing charge, however - and before you could draw a bead on her forehead, the Desert Eagle finding its way into your hand - what little slack that the chains restraining Lucius has quickly runs out, stopping the murder before it could even happen with a terrific crash of metal. This does not stop the enraged Magical Girl, however - and she roars a wordless cry as she strains to reach forward, the chains creaking and straining as they prevent Lucius from tearing Sayaka apart with her bare hands.Your Equerry, despite being mere inches from the berserk Magical Girl, simply frowns - before turning to look at you."Training." Sayaka gestures to the snarling Lucius. "In some Officios, Eversors are trained to explode into a killing rage the moment they're forcibly woken up from Silent sleep."...But what good does that do? You find yourself asking. Sure, an Eversor in this kind of state could kill her interrogators, but she'd still be in the headquarters of a rival Officio, and would probably be hunted down on the spot. So what's the use...?The blue-haired Eversor smiles at you. "Well, that tells me you're not that fucked up yet, Murderface." She shakes her head. "Think about it for a moment. If you have an operative captured by a rival Officio, and they're waking her up in a Silent Room for interrogation - what is the last thing you want to happen?"...[2/3]
>>35301191"Right." Sayaka nods, taking your silence as realization. "She kills a few girls, but the main aim is to remove her as a liability. To remove the risk of her revealing your Officio's secrets." She turns back to the rabid Lucius, the chained Magical Girl still snarling wordless curses and oaths. "Funny thing is, Lucius probably didn't know about it. This kind of thing, you need a Culexus for. Subconscious training and all that." So...this isn't the trap Lucius has planned for you?"I'm guessing no, but we can always ask." Sayaka flashes you a momentary smile, before hauling forward - and then smashing the guard of her sword against Lucius' jaw. The impact loud enough to echo inside the otherwise echoproofed room.Lucius falls slack on her chains again, momentarily knocked out, but to trauma rather than to a Silent Engine's anti-magic effects. She stirs a few moments later, spitting out what looks like a tooth and a mouthful of blood. The rage gone from her eyes, replaced by what looks like anger. A dull kind, weakened by weariness and resignation."Is this how the famous Ninth treats its esteemed guests?" Lucius says, her voice as calm and as refined as you heard it back then, during the stadium. Over the cheer of the rabid crowd. "I'll have to speak to your manager about this, Miki Sayaka.""You're in luck." Your Equerry sheathes her sword, the blood still fresh on its dented hand guard. "She's here, just like you asked." And it's here that Sayaka steps aside to reveal you - and you see the anger in the prisoner's eyes flash briefly into hatred."Matsuda." Lucius says after a long period of silence, of the both of you simply staring at each other. "Or should I say, Warmaster Matsuda. Formally ratified as of last night, I believe?" She smiles, her teeth pinked with blood. "Congratulations. I'd curtsey, but I'm a bit tied up at the moment."[3/4]

>>35301477that was extremely painful
>>35301453Why is Risa so goddamn cute?
We got a letter from the 17th with Odette as Warmaster, does that mean the Canada-writeups take place later than our current point in time, or did we get a spoiler for future writeups?

>>35301354>>35301477She has big hands. For Yuu.
So what we gonna do when we try to leave and the outter silent room thinks the prisoner has escaped?That might have been Lucius's plan all along. Get us trapped inside while some other people murderize everyone we care about.
>>35301668>>35301649>>35301589>>35301573AzureNyan is in the thread!?
>>35301556The latter, though it's barely a spoiler anymore.By the way, most writeup series (all of them?) take place more or less in the past, and you can reasonably expect the Oficio/group status to be slightly different in the present time(though the changes would logically stem from what's written in the writeups).
>>35301668Unless that is what I wanted you to think! The classic blunder! Second only to never getting involved in a land war in Asia.
>>35301703FYI: The Fourth's writeups take place concurrently with the main thread.
>>35301686We would get a new Midori arc?
>>35301453I didn't even know Oriko was in the picture.
>>35301732Zounds! That certainly IS the sort of thing that he would say. Unlike nyaa~
>>35301732I thought the first blunder was invading Russia in the winter?
>>35302033Falls under Land War in Asia thing.
>>35301556Just to add to what >>35301703 said, the Prose Magica writeups take place 2-3 months before MGNQ started.
>>35302043I never really got how that was a blunder. I mean, it worked for Genghis Khan.
>>35302112The Mongols didn't have the sort of supply issues that most other armies had, what with having lots of horses (access to reliable transportation for the whole army), and living off said horses (no need for big, long, vulnerable supply lines)
>>35302112Genghis Khan was the exception. He was also very impressive so it is okay.
>>35302112It is a myth that land wars in asia are a bad idea. The chinese did it all the time back in the warring states period.Hint: That's also why they're very good at it.
>>35302138And most of us are related to him
>>35302112Pretty much these. Supply issues, complicated by equipment issues, complicated by having to transport a large amount of troops long distances in hostile territory.>>35302131>>35302138
>>35302161Like 5 percent of Asia mainly. Charlemagne is just as hilarious given something like 1/3 or more of Europe is related to him.

>>35301231 >>35301240 >>35301242 >>35301254You decide to try Yuma's suggestion. Holstering your Desert Eagle - ignoring how Lucius' eyes flashed at the sight of the golden handcannon - it's here that you pose the question that your own Culexus Rank Leader gave you to use. "What do you want?"And just like how Yuma predicted - this visibly catches the Eversor off guard, her eyes widening underneath her matted mop of stringy blonde hair. The self-assured smirk on her lips momentarily slackening into an 'o' of surprise, before quickly resuming its former shape."...I admit, I wasn't expecting that," Lucius shakes her head, her chains clinking together at the movement. "I was expecting something much less...considerate. Much less civil." She nods down at her own knees, bent underneath her as she slumps forward - letting the tension of her chains keep her upright. "I wasn't expecting to wake up to see my own kneecaps still unshot, at that.""Keep blabbing like that, then you can look forward to being chained to a wheelchair." Sayaka spits. "Now answer the fucking question.""There it is. The famous Ninth Officio temper." Lucius' smirk turns into a smile, as warm and as friendly as the crescent of a well-oiled blade. "And I was hoping that the culling of both the Betrayer and the Slayer from your ranks would have at least improved it some. Apparently, this isn't the case."The Slayer? You blink at the title, turning to Sayaka. Your Equerry shakes her head in dismissal. "Kirika's title, or at least that's what the other Officios called her. She didn't like it, she thought it was...inelegant.""An inelegant title for an inelegant murderer," The blonde Eversor replies. "But yes, I understand your impatience. Let me just gather my thoughts, please. Silent sleep isn't something I've been able to bounce back from right away."A moment later, and Lucius looks up. The smile on her lips widening."A duel, Warmaster Matsuda. I challenge you to a duel."[1/2]
>>35302301Now it's Sayaka who explodes, barging in from her corner of the room to snarl directly at Lucius' face. "STOP. FUCKING. AROUND, LUCIUS. You are challenging a fucking Warmaster to an honor duel. MY Warmaster." To her credit, the blonde Eversor doesn't flinch at all - simply meeting Sayaka glare for glare, as if the heavy metal links chaining her to the wall and floor of a Silent Room simply didn't exist. "Choose your words carefully before I fuck your head off.""May I finish, please? I offer no insult. I know where I am." Lucius turns to you, and it's a moment before you gesture for Sayaka to allow her to continue. Your Equerry acquiesces, but only begrudgingly, growling underneath her breath."My thanks, Warmaster Matsuda." Lucius smiles gratefully. "As I was saying - I challenge you to a duel. With blades, not with those brutish things that you thwarted my efforts with. Whatever arena, I cannot care less - I just ask that it take place in the full view of your own Officio. You win, I lead you to the Prophet personally, with my life in your hands, to do with whatever you wish.""And if you win?" Sayaka asks for you, her arms crossed under her breasts, a sure sign that she's trying to reign in the impulse to be murderously violent. "What happens then?""Then I die, but with my mission completed." Lucius nods to your Equerry. "You of all people should understand where I'm coming from, Miki Sayaka. We finish the job we're given or we don't come back at all. I'm simply allowing your Warmaster a chance to get what she needs instead of simply having me executed." [2/3]
>>35302322IT'S TIME FOR KIRIKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>35302322Another smile, and you can't help but feel that this one seems more sincere than the rest she'd been flashing. "If it makes you feel any better, this is far from my being altruistic for some reason or other. I also wish to carve some honor out of this - to fight one last swordfight before finally leaving this mortal coil. Execution is the worst fate for an Eversor, after all. Dying without a weapon in her hands..." She clicks her tongue in slow disapproval. "A shameful end. A lamentable death."Sayaka scoffs here. "Then you'd better start with the prayers, because there's no way in hell she's going to fall for that." Your Equerry turns to you. "Right, Murderface? ...Murderface?"How do you react?Accept. If it's a duel she wants, she's got it.Refuse. She's planning something, and you're not going to fall for it. Threaten her with execution instead.I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?Other.
>>35302353>>35302322"Ha. HA. HAHAHAHA!!! No. Here's what's going to happen. I'm going to have my Equerry execute you right here and now. I'm going to find Oriko, and I'm going to leave a trail of blood and suffering so far and so wide the world will mistake it for the second coming of Walpurgisnacht. I'm done with your games, and your pretentious attitude."
>>35302353>Accept. If it's a duel she wants, she's got it.
>>35302353>[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?
>>35302353>[X]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?
>>35302353>[X]Refuse. She's planning something, and you're not going to fall for it. Threaten her with execution instead.Ha fuck off.
>>35302353[x]Other.It sounds like you want a personal meeting with the Slayer. I'll ask her if she thinks worth meeting.
>>35302353>I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?
>>35302353[X]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?
>>35302353Ha ha ha, oh my no. She is in no position to negotiate.
>>35302353>[x]Refuse. She's planning something, and you're not going to fall for it. Threaten her with execution instead.As much as I'd love to go full Kirika on her, its a bad deal. I trust Yuu, The Fragments, and even Risa to back down when told, Kirika has to many issues right now.
>>35302353[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?"Jesus christ, how much of a drunk do you think I am?"
>>35302353>[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?>There are people who would actually accept.
>>35302353[x]RefuseThis is stupid. She doesn't even know where Oriko is because of the threat of being captured and then having someone like Yuma finding out.
>>35302375I'll add that I feel this option is better than outright refusing because we keep her talking and make her desperate. Simply accepting is the most foolish thing we could do. However, simply refusing is also bad because we don't get to hear anymore from her. I'd rather see if she lets something slip while we keep her talking and keep our cards to ourselves a little longer.
>>35302353>Accept. If it's a duel she wants, she's got it.Tell Sayaka to lick her soul gem in the middle of the duel.
>>35302369This sounds like a fantastically hilarious idea.
>>35302353[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?[X]Mentally ask if any of the 3 stooges are highly skilled in sword-combat.
>>35302353>[X]Other: "Let's say I do accept this...request. What prevents you from simply running away the moment the duel starts? And don't say, "My honor would never let me do that", you took a stadium full of innocents hostage."
>>35302353>I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?>Are you an idiot or something? You can't challenge someone to a duel only once you've lost the position of power.
>>35302353>I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?Also mention that you can execute here right here and now (maybe a little torture for emphasis, nothing too serious), so why would we give her the chance to duel?
>>35302353>[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?Let's not answer before we have the full picture
>>35302353>[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?And then>[x]RefuseChallenging a Vindicare Warmaster to a sword fight?Ahahahahaha... No.
>>35302353>[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?we already beat her once, why would we want to give it another go? So she can pull some cheap trick or something? She has no honor.
>>35302426I don't think the duel option is a good one (even if it has it's merits like giving Risa some screen time), but if get's selected i want something like this to happen.
>>35302426That's dirty. I like it.Accept. If it's a duel she wants, she's got it.Time to get them Kirika points. And get some fucking use out of our katana. And tip our warmaster cap at M'dori
In truth, I suspect she does not even know where Oriko is.Or if she did, Oriko has moved after she was captured just in case.The duel is not worth it even if we could win.
>>35302478If we had the Katana under decent control it wouldn't be so bad due to Kirika being able to easily beat the hell out of her. Just we have no real faith in her to start with.
Man. it's almost like you guys don't want licked soul gems>>35302494YES! TELL BRING KIRIKA AND STAB HER INTO LUCIUS WHEN SAYAKA IS LICKING THE SOUL GEM. THIS IS PERFECT
>>35302513Which is again why I say no. I'm not disagreeing with you anon.
>>35302353[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?
>>35302353>[x]I have other leads. What makes you think I'll accept?You interrupted my drink... FOR THIS?
>>35302513I'm tempted to bring along just a non-Golden Weapon blade for this duel should it happen. Risky, to be sure, and colossally stupid, but beating an Eversor with our noodly Vindicare self would be hilarious.
>>35302494It honestly wouldn't be too hard to just take her soul gem and place it somewhere out of the arena. If she breaks any of the rules then Sayaka crushes it with her teeth. I wouldn't suggest accepting at all but if it happens.
>>35302538Even worse. She interrupted our Midoritime for this.
[x] Just shoot the stupid bitch.For maximum sayaka points.
>There's a chance for a bloody and violent duel with lots of cutting and stabbing and backstabbing and noir>No one wants to take it>Everyone wants to take the boring, safe, watch wearing dildo optionI CAME HERE FOR NOIR. NOT FOR FUWA FUWA TIME. Goddamn this quest has changed since the earlier threads (1-80~)
>>35302353>Refuse. She's planning something, and you're not going to fall for it. Threaten her with execution instead.
>>35302561This.[x] Shoot her in the kneecap. "How stupid do you think I am?"
>>35302353>[X]Refuse. She's planning something, and you're not going to fall for it. Threaten her with execution instead.
>>35302575We kind of already had all that with her though. It's just being a poor loser to ask for it again.
>>35302494We'll get our Kirika points during Eversor training.And give Midori more than that
>>35302547And while waiting with the soulgem in her mouth Blueberry should lick it now and then
>>35302575I know right? It's been almost 10 threads since there's been bodily harm, and the last person to get kneecapped was that bitch from the Heartcatch squad.Where is the blood, sex and noir!?
>>35302353Voting period is closed!Thank you for voting!
>>35302599I keep hoping we will get to that soon. I want to see the katana smashing a blueberry.
>>35302611>Where is the blood, sex and noir!?Just happened two threads ago.
>>35302611It left like 200 threads ago.
>>35302575Taking the stupid animu duel with the person who's already been proven completely untrustworthy is... are you sure you haven't gotten confused on the difference between shonen anime and noir?
Violence is inbound. We should follow Best Bitch's advice and execute the traitor before we leave.
>>35302611The noir is gone for now. The blood is mostly not here yet. The sex happens more often but offscreen.
>>35302611>Where is the blood, sex and noir!?Always watching.
>>35302575I was hoping for some actually plot progression but it seems like that's dead in the water.
>>35302575I agree with >>35302636 here. That isn't even taking a "noir" option, that's just being silly.
>>35302644That's a waste of time though. Since we could get info out of her.
>>35302618Patience.Even if it does take 3 months min. for plot to progress.
Oh Shit!We gotta keep her alive! The worst fate for an Eversor, life imprisonment.
>>35302679Pity we haven't had any major profession since the new fucking antagonist got introduced in the concert ark. There has been almost zero progression towards actually doing something.
>>35302697That would be amazing. Just pull the golden eagle out and shoot both her legs off and tell her Chaki doesn't follow the Eversor sense of honor.
>>35302699You act like this is unusual. Deculture is a master of decompression.
>Challenged to an honor duel>Scoffing and shooting them in the head is not noir
>>35302743I honestly say while it's slow decu can write really well. It just takes a while to get all the way though an arc generally. Even if once it's done it's pretty good.
>>35302746Honestly I would recommend something really mean like just taking random shots though her body then leaving her to rot forever in the dungeon. If she proves useless.
>>35302770Reminder that it's been 100 parts since we learned about Oriko and we're still nowhere near actually dealing with her.
>anons don't want to undergo a Kirika/Sayaka TRAINING MONTAGE >anons don't want to make Murderface's fangirls squeeMGNQ is far sadder than I thought.Also, why not suggest she duel someone competent- like, I dunno, Sayaka- and have a legitimately-honourable duel?
>>35302785Nah. Deny her even the satisfaction of pain. We give her nothing but being nearly forgotton.Have someone we trust absolutly check up on her meatbody every other day.
>>35302770I agree. I have no problem with the way decu write slowly, it gives me time to digest the story
>>35302655Why is Pinky so perfect?
>>35302746>not accepting their duel>then playing dirty>then crushing the spirit as they realize no matter what they do, you have a trick for them>Not posing during the fight>Not replying to their taunt's with "Your next words will be x" and watching them react, "nani!?">Not wanting to the Jonathon
>>35302832A fine question sir
>>35302832Because she's best girl.
>>35302832Because Midori is a moeblob, Wendy is in love with the shadow of our past, Kharn's already taken, Odette hasn't shown up, Kyouko is too bro, going for blueberry means ntr'ing KyouBro and who the fuck is lori?Only one left, and best waifu who loves us for who we are is Pinky,
>>35302835See? That's Jojo. Jojo's shounen. Don't complain about people taken a reasonable option and then complaining about not playing up to shounen stereotypes. I mean, I love Jojo, but this is this and that is that.
>>35302831It's less Decu's slow-writing and more the fact that there's just a boat-load of anons in here- or so I like to think, at least.
>>35302881No it's the fact that Decu writes like an artist and wouldn't know what pacing is if it raped him in the face.
>>35302906Throwing lots of shiny buttons in front of us doesn't speed things up, either.
>>35302954Making some actually progression towards are goal for what is getting close to half of this quest does though.
>>35302973How's it hanging.
>>35302973Except decu can actually write
>>35302835Posing during a fight is dumb anyway.
>>35302973>>35303012>We're halfway though guys promise.
>>35303021It's like you have no style.
>>35302973Now all we need are the twists.And some more CUHRAYZEE
>>35302973Kubo is the Herman Melville of our generation.
>>35303040Worst girl pls go
>>35303061He writes whaling encyclopedias?
>>35303089goddammit eleanor, we told you to fuck off alreadyno one likes youyou've never helped anyoneand you never will
>>35303040You just proved my point.
>>35303112I like her. sort of. despite being a retard. and making things horrible. why do I like her again?
>>35303028Hey, remember that time the Red Culexus turned into some random Callidus after we shot her in the face just to make sure the plot continued to go nowhere? That was great.
>>35303112>>35303089I like Eleanor and Heather. Why don't the two of you go and stay go?
>>35303112Attarou pls go as well
>>35303134Probably her charisma.
>>35303137I remember, anon.Do you remember the time we did paperwork?
>>35303127>>35303112>>35303089Wow someone people dislike more than the Cat. Where is Wendy today anyways?
>Attarou hateFuck dammit, I shouldn't be laughing
>>35303158That wasn't me though it makes me very happy.
>>35303164Yeah I remember that.How about that time something almost happened but it was a dream?
The only character worse than Cat is probably Wendy.
>>35303173Ha ha, to be fair, anon, I don't actually hate Eleanor. Attarou does an excellent job shooting you dead-on in the feels in Eleanor's first story arc.I was primarily trolling the anon posting stuff about Heather.
>>35303225Did you forget what website we're on?
>>35303209You're not wrong
>>35303203I... well, you should probably be more specific, but, yeah, I remember.Do you remember that time we talked about threesomes?
>>35303252How about how more major character have come back to life then have died during the story.That shit with the clara dolls.
>>35303269I don't blame decu for not killing major characters off. Could you imagine the sort of shitstorm that would happen if one of the main cast got killed off? Like Wendy?
>>35303283That's true but it ruins any chance of a real threat being presented.Also how has Oriko been the antagonist for like half of this quest so far she only has one golden weapon. How mad will you be when some random shows up to give us like 7 of the things?
>>35303283Wendy dying? Please. When does this happen? Soon?
>>35303283I would pay decu 150 dollars to kill off Misaka. The shitstorm would be amazing.
>>35303283>Not MidoriHahaha the outrage when she dies is going to be amazing
>>35303329Don't worry she'd come back to life 10 threads later because reasons.
>>35303329Misaka is a stupid character anyway. She should have been killed off in the fire.
>>35303283... I don't remember when Wendy became one of the main cast.I remember a crazy bitch stabbing us in our dreams, then us fondling her ass for reasons I don't remember and probably weren't there in the first place and then us saying we'd try to do better, I think.Which, apparently, was interpreted as 'RABU'.Ah, memories.
>>35303312>Odette finally shows up in the quest>hands over half the golden weapons>rides moose into the sunset after one thread
>>35303329>>35303346But then who would take the role of imouto? Yuu?
>>35303337Do you really thing Decu will ever have the balls to kill a main character? He can't even let us kill of a minor antagonists red pet.
>>35303209>Cat>Bad>Wendy>WorseThe only bad character in this quest is Chiaki, and that's because of you faggots
>>35303312>some randomIt won't be some random. At the very least it will be the Warmaster of the First.Was she ever named?
>>35303358It happened when she became Decu's waifu.
>>35303361Yes, I will.
Question: How is Rob Zombie's Dragula not the theme song for the entire Officio?
>>35303337Everyone complains about the pacing being slow, not much plot-per-post.It's all deliberate. The Noir is building up and will soon hit us like a tonne of bricks. Or the Crunch Train. Whichever you prefer.
>>35303368Can't argue with that.
>>35303368The MGNQ wiki is the best.
>>35303361Yuu already is the imouto. Misaka is just dead weight.
>>35303387I'm really starting to doubt that. Considering how many times decu has tried to force us into dumb shoen duels for contrived reasons this quest is now full pulp.
>>35303376Hazuki Amane.Sister of Haruka and has the mother of all sticks up her arse according to Vintage.
>>35303376It's still a complete cop-out.
>>35303421>how many times decu has tried to force us into dumb shoen duels for contrived reasonsyeah this has been happening a lot right?
>>35303397The wiki also says that it is possible to have an unhealthy attraction towards Mami, and that's bullshit
>>35303387Where the fuck does this come from? There has never been a single major consequence during the entire quest. Decu has gotten this reputation without ever actually doing anything.>>35303450It has never not happened it started ith Kirika and has never stopped. Every time there's a serious threat some contived bullshit happens to force us into a dumb shoen duel.
>>35302373 >>35302375 >>35302395 >>35302400You narrow your eyes at the smiling Eversor, finding yourself wanting to cross your own arms over your chest, in unconscious imitation of Sayaka's frustrated body language. You immediately light a cigarette instead, your first breath upon ignition burning the stick halfway down to its filter. You blow the smoke away from Lucius, but immediately wish that you'd blown it into her face the moment you see her nose crinkle."Smoking. A filthy habit." Lucius shakes her head. "Well, Warmaster Matsuda? What do you say?"You glare at her for a moment longer, before shaking your head. You have other leads, you tell her. What makes her so sure that you'd accept her challenge?Her answer is a laugh - a pretty laugh, one that you should be hearing from a dignified woman of class in a beautiful dress, instead of a defeated young woman shackled in chains, with only a dingy white medical gown protecting her modesty. "I must respectfully disagree, Warmaster Matsuda - you have no leads. Not a single one." She shakes her head. "If I'm guessing correctly, you mean my colleagues, yes? My squadmates, the ones you've stopped from carrying out their appointed tasks? Kana, even?" Another laugh, this one much shorter, much harsher than the first. "They know nothing, Warmaster. Interrogate them, torture them, seduce them to your side, rip out the truth from their minds - whatever you find will not lead you to the Prophet."And she does? You step forward, wanting more than ever to put your cigarette out on one of her eyes, just to stop her from smirking."I brought the staff to Oriko." Lucius's smile is terrible now. "For a time, I was Ahriman's will made manifest, until we found her true successor. I alone know how to find the Prophet, I alone know the path back to her fastness."[1/2]
>>35303397didn't see that change happen, odd. I usually try to keep things neutral.
>>35303486Another moment, and the Eversor's smile turns kindly. "Let's not spend time posturing or trying to outwit one another, Warmaster Matsuda. I have little in the way of wiles. I am no trickster or manipulator - I am a warrior, first and foremost. I deal with reality with a blade in my hand. I am the only lead you have that will lead you to Oriko. Kill me now, and the killings and the burnings will continue. Give me what I want, and you have a chance to end the madness before the Prophet decides to burn this city along with you."You glare down at Lucius, before shaking your head. What she's saying...you don't want to even acknowledge it, but she makes sense. In a twisted way, she does."You're not actually considering it, are you?" Sayaka asks you incredulously, her eyes wide. "Murderface, this is a trap. She wants to kill you. I--""I don't think I've ever said anything to the contrary, Miki Sayaka." Lucius calls out to your Equerry. "Yes, I want your Warmaster dead. I want to see her corpse cooling by my feet, with her Soul Gem ground to powder underneath my boot's heel--""..." Sayaka wordlessly but violently gesticulates with both hands towards the chained Eversor's direction, as if trying to make her point even further."--but the difference is, I wish to do it with my own two hands. With my own sword. In mortal combat, in an audience of my peers." Lucius nods towards you. "Without guile, without the cloak concealing my blade. Without deception. I wish to fight you, Warmaster, and kill you before dying myself. I want the last chapter of my life to be spent fighting a fight that actually matters."...You shake your head again. Something doesn't fit, here. Supposing if you accept - what's stopping her from escaping?[2/3]
>>35303421To be fair, though, Chiaki has proven herself to be... not-so-bright... time and time again.Remember the time we actually had a vote about who would be the one to burn/destroy that massively unimportant letter?Instead of, say, whipping out a lighter and burning it on the spot?Or just giving it back to Yuma, as would make sense?
>>35303358Fondling fine healthy butts is its own reward, you don't need any other reasons.
>>35303513Who told her about the burnings?
>>35303519Remember that time almost every conversation last 2+ threads?>>35303513No but have a dumb shoen duel though it's the only noir way.
>>35303513"Where would I run to?" Lucius looks surprised, shocked even. "Back to Oriko? With her knowing that I've failed catastrophically in my own duties? Or that I've spent much too long already as a prisoner in the Officio she so despises?" She shakes her head. "I would be hunted every day, every hour, every waking moment of my life, Warmaster Matsuda. And that is no way to live."She laughs again. "And how would I escape, with your entire Officio watching us? Even if I win by slaying you, my death is assured, if not by Miki Sayaka here then the many others under your command. I am sure they would be just as eager to punish my cowardice as much as they would your murder by my hand, Warmaster Matsuda."..."I realize it's a difficult decision to make." Lucius suddenly says, breaking the awkward silence between you. No smile graces her lips this time - instead, she looks almost apologetic. "But those are my terms, Warmaster, and I have to stand by them. If you truly cannot find it in yourself to accept, then have me executed instead. That should be a much easier and much cleaner way of solving things, yes?" She rattles her chains here. "I wish you luck with the Prophet then. Perhaps, when she's killed enough and burned enough, she may let you find her."How do you respond?Accept.Refuse. Give me a day to decide.
>>35303490I don't know. Seems pretty objective to me.
>>35303481>>35303513Yay another one
>>35303486......we have a job for Yuma now. She gets to literally rip someone's mind apart for info.

>>35303546>>35303554Do this. I'm tired of dumb duels, but there is possibly some useful information.

>>35303575>>35303580>>35303590What happens if Yuma refuses? What happens if Lucius is strong-willed enough to not have her mind read?
Just bring Yuma in immediately. Don't tell the prisoner anything or she'll suicide. Somehow.
>>35303546>[x]Give me a day to decide.As much as I want to just gut her, let's not be hasty.
>>35303595MGNQ lolis dressed up for Halloween.With varying degrees of want
>>35303546>[x] RefuseShe dug her own grave there. She just admitted mindraping her minions won't do us any good, and that she knows everything. What's keeping us from mindraping her?
>>35303598Honestly Yuma might not want to go full mindrape due to the last time.
>>35303546[X]Refuse. We can't trust her. We could not win without some form of cheating, and she would use that as an excuse to refuse to honor the bargain.Heck, even if we won fair and square, she would still just lead us into a trap.Only a total and complete fool would accept.
>>35303546>[x]Give me a day to decide."I'll get back to you. One way or the other."
>>35303623This will probably happen and then when we beat her she'll reveal that it's not even her final form.
>>35303546The Yuma mind rape idea is starting to sound better and better...
>>35303623What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?
>>35303550>unhealthy interest in Mami TomoeSTILL. WRONG.
>>35303623Yuma cannot refuse a direct order from her Warmaster.And if Lucius is strong enough to not be mindread, we'll mindrape her minions in front of her. Starting with Kana.
>>35303546>[x]Give me a day to decide.see if Mami is absolutely sure she can get that information out of our other prisoners.
>>35303628Yuma might not succeed for whatever reason. Lucius does seem pretty strong-willed...
>>35303623If she refuses we'll take her aside and let her know this is the only way. If she can't help us with this, then all she is is a glorified jailor and we have hundreds of those.She won't refuse because she owes us. She owes us huge.
>>35303546>Accept.>Tell Sayaka to lick the soul gem during the duel
>>35303623>>35303630Orders are orders.Also confirm to Chiaki that Yuma can do that and strengthen Murderface's claims.
>>35303550>large and notable back storyYooooo
>>35303546>Refuse."Why give you the satisfaction of the fight when we can get the thrut out of you with our culexus?"Also if we don't want to mindrapeher we still can torture her, right? We can even pretend to accept the duel and have someone snipe her just to fuck with her
>>35303656I don't know but it won't be plot progression.
I'd rather have the Kirika duel with Sayaka.Also, who knows. Maybe Kirika herself can hone in on Oriko like Lucius here can hone in on Ahriman.
>>35303660No healthy person would be not interested in mumi.
>>35303663Are you kidding? Sure, she can't refuse, but she's the only Culexus we have. If she breaks down from PTSD, what the fuck can we possibly do?>>35303667She can refuse because she's our only Culexus and she knows it.
>>35303654Feels kind of horrible to do that.Though I guess someone who would risk the lives of countless innocent people deserves it more. Though I dislike the idea of mindrape even then. Ohwell.
>>35303550Didn't write the Wendy page, only really look at what I did. Too busy with stuff at the university lately though.
>>35303663>KanaI would love that.
>>35303682Glad to see there is someone in here who gets it
>>35303688Then we'll accept the duel.
>>35303137Reminder that Haruka saw Misaka die in quote "The flames of warpfire"I don't think golems count for this.It's seeming increasingly likely that we are being played by a clique consisting of Haruka, Yuma, and their related others. At this point Oriko doesn't even need to exist
While I do think the mindrape option is the most practical, I don't want Yuma to feel validated
All she wants is to get out of the cell. The duel is solely an excuse. Once she'sd out of the cell, Oriko and Ahriman will blow her soul gem from a distance - or cause her to witch out, which has been done in the past to us. We have no reason to believe it's impossible at this point.
>>35303656The universe would basically explode. An unmovable object would need to be the size of the universe.
>>35303679Good idea.Actually, could we just forcibly make her hold Muramasa?Without the protective procedure she would be easily corrupted by the sword. Kirika would take over her mind eventually would she not, and learn where Oriko is? Heck, she is probably partially corrupt already thanks to Ahriman making it even easier.No need to fuckup Yuma and we get the info we need.
>>35303702>yfw when this chick knows nothing and we're still no closer to finding Okrio.>>35303718I still can't believe that red bitch is so important to deserve this kind of bait and switch shit just to keep her alive.
>>35303718I thought it was Witchfire?
>>35303546>[X]Refuse. surprisinglly I managed to make it in time for at least one votebut seriously althought I really like the shonen duels I belive that it's not time to it, we should deal with her later with Yuma by our side
>>35303546JUST LICK HER SOUL GEM ALREADY
>>35303421>>35303450>>35303481>>35303540>>35303587>shoenWe gonna draw shoes and chuck them at each other that sounds pretty fucking cool anon.[x]Accept
>>35303745That is actually a pretty all right idea honestly. As long as we can trust her not to flip out and try and kill us.
>>35303768I did propose the soul gem in the whiskey idea last thread.
>>35303745Amazing idea until we have to deal with the fact that now we're fighting Kirika and not Lucius
>>35303744No, it would just need to not follow Newton's Laws.Even the universe would move with a small amount of force. It'd just move very slowly.
>>35303718Speaking of Haruka...Given that Oriko and crew know that we have some sort of divination girl, I wonder if they're going to/have already figured out a way to either baffle it or even how Haruka false visions?
>>35303795By taking Lucius over, Kirika would actually gain proof that we are telling the truth about Oriko being corrupted by Ahriman.Doing this would give Kirika MORE reason to help us. Not less.
>>35303821It's also possible that they just moved somewhere else.
>>35303821Sounds like a good way to stretch this shit out even more so probably.
>>35303546Voting is over! Thank you for participating!
>>35303809>Not follow Newtons Laws.That would be interesting. Now just to find something that doesn't.
>>35303746>mfwDecu's ride won't end well.And I'll be laughing
>>35303841Well, just find something from another universe that has different laws.
>>35303830Would Kirika want Oriko dead, though? Because she knows we're going to kill her.
>>35303590>[x]Refuse.>[x]Bring in the Mind sculptor.No more fucking around
Considering we nearly lost WITH golden weaponry, fuck dueling. [X] REFUSE."You neglected the one important thing. I can torture you forever and keep you alive forever. No one is impervious. and in case you've forgotten..."KNEECAPS."I. Don't. Care."
>>35303842I wonder if we still won't know where she is this time next year.
>>35303841>Now just to find something that doesn't.Lovecraftian Old Ones? Witches? Pinky?
>>35303805Still worth it.
>>35303830>MORE reason to help usNo. It'd give Kirika both the power and the vehicle to save Oriko alone and to kill us in the process.
>>35303872But then Heather couldn't get cyberarms
>>35303872Honestly I'm starting to this the GW won't even matter and some dumb bullshit will just show up to rush us to an ending.
>>35303857We actually promised to try and take Oriko alive because she is just a puppet of Ahriman.Learning from Lucius that this is true and that Oriko actually IS a puppet of Ahriman would make her more likely to believe us.
>>35303873Pinky is neither immovable nor unstoppable.She's just infinitely cute.
How did Lucius know about the burning?This worries me greatly.
SO who's willing to bet she just kills herself with a hidden cyanide pill when Yuma comes in?
Alright, that's enough for this thread! Most voted action to start off the next one! We may be continuing on Monday night, if not, thread to continue next Friday!Thank you for your participation, feedback is always welcome! No writeups for today, unfortunately, so questions answered before I go to bed, I guess!
>>35303899Are you absolutely positively sure of that?
>>35303945I'm pretty sure they scrubbed her and all that.
>>35303949Will the plot progress soon or will there be more dumb shit to stop us going anywhere?
>>35303894Only if we were so utterly stupid that we would let Lucius run free with Kirika.What I am suggesting is that we lock her up even tigher, so tight that even powered by GW, she cannot escape.Then leave the GW touching her for a couple of days. Then remove GW, contact Kirika, point out that we told her the truth about Ahriman and ask where Oriko/Ahriman is.
>>35303945That wouldn't work due to soul gem.
>>35303945She witches out instead.
>>35303949Thanks for running.Say Decu, or Archival, if Odette's as flat as a board, does she at least have the hips and legs to make up for it?
>>35303939Perhaps it was just already planned when she went on her own mission.
>>35303949When will the Prophet Arc end?
>>35303949Thanks again for running!
>>35303949Can the three stooges help Chiaki resist mental invasions from a Culexus? Like say if that red culexus tries to mindrape Chiaki, could the three stooges help fight her off?
>>35303949If the story is half-way through why is Oriko a quarter of it?
>>35303949Thanks for the thread, Decu!
>>35303925>immovableFrom what frame of reference?Otherwise, both objects are unable to be acceleratedinteraction between them would be impossible, because they'd have to not interact with ANYTHING to work that way!
>>35303949Thanks for the show, boss.
>>35303950Woah, is that Latin? Didn't expect to see her here, sweet!
>>35303965It's progressing at the moment! >>35303974Archival's away getting a snowblower, but I would say she does have stuff going on at the back!>>35303978We're making headway into resolving it, I promise!
>>35303949How many more times are you going to try and force us into a dumb shoen duel?
>>35304011Oh sod off.The point is Pinky can be convinced to act otherwise than she would, therefore not immovable.
>>35303974DFC is its own charm.
>>35303949Thanks for running!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20QuestThread has been archived!Can we get an official answer to this: >>35303939 ?
>>35304022>It's progressing at the moment! Where did you learn what progress means?
>>353040221v1 IRL is progress now?
>>35304024>shoenI think you mean "shonen"Also, all these people run by some warrior code. Duels are commonplace, adn a typical way of resolving disputes.Little did they know Vindicares have no obligation to accept challenges. Vindicares are not warriors, they are assassins.
>>35304022When will the person show up to give us 7 golden weapons?
>>35304022>Archival's getting a snowblowerThank goodness Edmonton hasn't gotten snow yet. Yet.>She does have stuff going on at the backThis is good.>>35304027I agree, anon. I just require the whole package rounded out.
>>35304067>Vindicares are not warriors, they are assassins.Could have fooled me with all the assassination we've never done.
>>35304027But DFC + hips and ass is better.
>>35304047http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/latin-takabatake-enaga-tanpenshuu-r10871It's pretty good.
>>35304090To be fair, we did even the odds against Kirika in our fight against her.
>>35304074Will we have to duel them before we get any?
>>35304120No we got a friend so snipe her while we had a big dumb duel.
>>35304120We didn't even hide our soul gem a floor or two down to guarantee our survival, anon!That's flat-out stupid no matter how you paint it.
>>35304140Sniping a target while providing a distraction sounds assassiny enough for me.
>>35304003Oh, most definitely! Murderface can definitely help against that kind of thing happening again.>>35304024Hahaha, Chiaki is free to refuse, that's what the voting options are for! I will always follow what anon votes for, no matter what it is!>>35304040Mmm, well, I realize it's slow going at the moment, but I'm doing what I can to move it along! I apologize if it seems to be a standstill at the moment, however.>>35304054I would say so! It's an important officer asking to trade information vital to the finding of Oriko for combat.
>>35304150But what about the REAL DRAMA!>>35304155Pity we weren't the ones doing it. We got an Evesor and an 8 year old to handle it.
>>35304160Will we get to use shoes in our shoen duel?
>>35304160If Vindicares are assassins how come we've never gotten to assassinate someone?
>>35304160>I will always follow what anon votes for, no matter what it is!>[screams internally].jpg
>>35304170Drama and assassination don't go together, anon.>>35304183>Shoes>bladesThe only way this could possibly work... is with KNIFE-SHOES>>35304196At least we still carry a goddamn gun...
>>35304160Can Yuma read Chiakis mind right now, or is Murderface blocking that too? Did Yuma hear it when Murderface talked to Chiaki?
>>35304228Oh, and I am referring to the surface thoughts mind reading here.
>>35304160What was with the ass pull over us killing the red suit bitch?
>>35304183Of course! The heels are always there!>>35304196Well...that's a good point! I'll make sure to address it!
>>35304266The 'CALL IN THE MIND-READER WHO JUST-SO-HAPPENS TO BE WAITING RIGHT THE FUCK OUTSIDE' option wasn't provided.
>>35304300Can't talk I'm busy having a duel.
>>35304228Hahaha! >>35304252Even Oriko knows how valuable Culexus and rare are!
>>35304396So why does she turn them into Callidus?
>>35304396Will we have to vote no to having a duel for a third time?
>>35304417Er...no, the Culexus that Chiaki killed in Misaka's warehouse was a Callidus disguised as the Red Culexus!
>>35304464Did you decide on that after we refused her duel and killed her?
>>35304417The Callidus was a double, imposter.
>>35304196All of them are assassins, anon. It's the Officio Assassinorum
>>35304441Of course not! If the vote says to refuse, that is what we're going with, and that's what Chiaki decides!
>>35304484>Officio AssassinorumKnown for their lack of assassins I bet.
>>35304464But why waste a callidus for that at all?What the hell was the point?
>>35304516Something along the lines of "Oh shit the players just killed someone before they were meant to!"
>>35304516Logically, Chiaki was suppose to arrive just in time to make a choice. Go after the disguised Culexus or try and save Misaka. But because timestop was used, their entire plan got blown off track.
>>35304505Bad Decu, don't feed the trolls.
>>35304555Legitimate criticisms and annoyance with problems is not trolling.
>>35304553Ah, right- I forgot about the timestop shenanigans!Thanks, anon!Have a cookie!
>>35304555>trollsAnon... this is 4chan.This is downright polite!
>>35304553That's still pretty contrived and it stinks of making up after the fact.
>>35304604... no, that stinks of being one of the most commonly-used villain-scheme-setups ever.
>>35304553If Oriko knew about Haruka's vision and Wendy's bike how did she not know about the timestop Chiaki is famous for?
>>35304630How does one account and/or plan for the ability to stop time?
>>35304660You don't so why is she in the first place.
>>35304630Where is it said that Oriko knew about Harukas vision or Wendys bike?
>>35304630I don't believe Oriko knew about the bike and she probably knows about Haruka because they already caught us spying on them.
>>35304678... have any of Oriko's plans actually worked out so far?I mean, fire-bombing a church isn't so much a plan as it is... well, a fire-bombing.
>>35304686>>35304703Well if she didn't know about that how were suppost to learn about it and get there just late enough that>Chiaki was suppose to arrive just in time to make a choice.this happens?>>35304706So is she just a prophet of plot convenience then?
>>35304706Maybe getting caught was part of her plan.
>>35304479No, I did not! I originally planned for her to be a Callidus in disguise, one that was thwarted by Chiaki's unexpected use of time stop.>>35304604I apologize, I realize there are a lot of issues with my pacing and writing, and I'm trying to address them as best I can.
>>35304732>Chiaki's unexpected use of time stop.How she is literally famous for having a perfect timestop.
>>35304724Phonecall by Callidus? Pretending to be Misaka calling for help? Wait until Chiaki arrives with everything ready?
>>35304774So they make the phone call after the building had burnt to the ground and exploded?
>>35304749This is actually on my end. When I first wrote Haruka, I wrote it that she cannot view Chiaki perfectly, there are gaps where she loses track of Chiaki. Decu's running with the same for Oriko, or anyone who tries to predict what Chiaki will do (who knows what the heck the readers will decide, right?)Prognosticators basically see Chiaki as a blur. They have some idea of what she might do, but she doesn't always follow the script. Now, and this part is speculation on my end, that squad that was sent to kill Misaka were probably working on the assumption that they had enough time based on a prediction from Oriko. It could have been right, or it could have been wrong (depending on anon's choices). In this case, it was wrong.
>>35304749Hahaha, sorry! I also want to add, they didn't quite expect Chiaki to be working with Wendy as well. That was what I meant by the unexpected use of time stop - in that it was used in conjunction with a very fast vehicle, i.e. the Schpeltiger. Oriko would have taken into consideration Chiaki's time stop, definitely, but not with that kind of assistance! It allowed them to use the Time Stop that much effectively!
>>35304828But shouldn't Aharim(spelt that wong) already know about her time stop it's the whole reason Chiaki met her in the first place.>>35304835But didn't you mention at one point that Chiaki has stopped time for days on her end?How could Oriko know it was limited now but not plan for her using it to get there faster than planned?
>>35304885>But didn't you mention at one point that Chiaki has stopped time for days on her end?That was before Pinky started haunting our timestop.
>>35304885Because of Pinky! She does have the Golden Staff, and I've also confirmed that Ahriman speaks to her. She knows about how Pinky is plaguing Chiaki and crippling her Time Stop.
>>35304931It still seems iffy what with how much Girl A must have used timestop as a crutch.I've been following this quest for a year and a half now and it the whole prophet thing has been going on for far to long without any tangible progress. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on the being a Callidus but it was a poor decision to make i the first place.
>>35305003To add on this has been going for almost half the quest know and there has been almost no progress on it.
>>35305034>were usually under a minute,\But there should be no way to tell that form the outside or if it was intentional or not.
>>35305003I understand. I also want things to move on beyond the Prophet arc, and I'll do my best to have us moving at a much faster clip with the succeeding threads. Thank you for staying with me for so long, it really means a lot.
>>35305059Well I just hope it's the very next thing for us to handle. It's dragged on far too long as is.
>>35305055>\But there should be no way to tell that form the outsideBasically, it could be estimated by how much the situation changed - how many people died, how far Chiaki moved, etc.>or if it was intentional or not.Yeah, you got a point there.
>>35305159But then you have to take into account how messed up Girl A was in the head- did she toy with 'em while they were frozen in time, or did she just get them over with?Was she leisurely about it, or did she hustle?
>>35305192From the video in Kharm quest it seems like she was also pretty fast wounding and unpausing time to watch the reactions.Though it must be pretty clear she's been crippled by using it as a crutch. With how Chiaki get's her shit kicked in when she can't use it and all.
>>35303974>>35304022>I would say she does have stuff going on at the back!Fit, toned butt, yes. Also firm Eversor tummy.
Deculture went to bed a little while ago, though it seems the discussion has ended anyway. Thank you all for reading MGNQ, and see you next week!
>>35302835>>Not wanting to be the Jonathon>Jonathon>Wrong Jojo>Can't even spell the wrong Jojo's name right
>>35306073>Fit, toned butt, yes. Also firm Eversor tummy.
>>35306073Sayaka tier or Kyoko?
>>35306878Now we just need a Lotte edit of that pic.
>>35306972Somewhere in-between. She doesn't have DEM ABS like Sayaka, but not as soft as Kyoko.
>>35307079Very well all is well carry on.
