I've really been itching to try something new, and with further thought, I figured too many personal threads would cause the quest to drag, so I'm limiting choices down to the girls that still have major unresolved plot threads dangling. So for now, your choices are:>Cole>Melissa>Sparky
>>37363504>>ColeBu-bu-but my DAUGHTERUSI want them alllll
>>37363504COLE COLE COLE COLE COLE COLE COLECole's first date.
>>37363504>Cole>>37363570Or maybe telling Umbrella to leave her and her family, alone or even improving her rep in the tombs.
>>37363504What about Julie and Niko? Both of them have back stories I feel need resolving.
>>37363688I'm sure everyone will get their moment, its whatever Merc has prepared at the time.
>>37363504>ColeAnyone else here watch Idolmaster CG for Rin?
>>37363504>MelissaYour killing me Merc, what about Justice! Also I wanted to see Rochelle's POV.What about the idols that we won't see their threads what will they use their coupon for?
>>37363713Oh I thought he was cutting it to only these idols.Thank Goodness, if it's the only ones available for now I'm okay for it.>>37363733To be honest I kind of want to save Rin near lass so we can exploit all the new Idolmaster gifs and screenshots
>>37363570>>37363612Whatever it is, she better accidentally call Producer, Dad
>>37363504>SparkyI know it won't win, but still I must try.
>>37363733>watching im@s CG only for Rin>not NOT watching it for Miss Totally Not Gonna Appear in The Anime Despite being the first and best Cinderella Girl Because Bandai Are Cheapass Bumfucks who don't want to spend doshNo I am not mad.Actually, yes, I am mad.
>>37363853Rin isnt appearing in Cinderella?
>>37363504You are COLE, a literal superpowered idol working for Clover Entertainment!Currently, you were taking a train down to a hotel where you, er, clone? Sister? Whatever. Dr. Vahlen was staying at. She had taken a brief vacation from Belle's rehabilitation to come back to Delta City for a visit. It's pretty nice of her, really, even though you weren't really sure how to feel about her.Meanwhile, the monorail hums as it glides down the rails to its destination, past glittering apartment blocks and holographic billboards hawking their wares.>You see her as long lost family.>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.>Other
>>37363954>>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.
>>37363954>>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Its the journey
>>37363954>>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Family is still weird, I mean, we just got Producer dad!
>>37363954>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Still she's pretty alright as far as it goes.
>>37363954>>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Better to have the character development happen on screen.
>>37363954>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you... but she's nice. A little weird, but nice.
>>37363954>>Other>You just don't know
>>37363954>>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Time to bond! I suggest going to the public pool or the Delta City equivalent. Daughteru must trust sisteru when former is at her most vulnerable.
>>37363954>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.
>>37363954>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Character development and bonding thread.
>>37363713>>37363798To clarify, Rin already had a thread for herself, Rochelle might get a thread of her own, Julie doesn't really have any outstanding issues (she's simple like that), and I keep getting hit with writer's block whenever it comes to Niko.
>>37363954>Honestly, she still feels like a stranger to you.Time to change that.
>>37364189Fair enough, though some sort of closure for Julie (maybe a couple of posts about her saying goodbye to her dead cop-dad?) would be nice.
>>37363954Honestly, you weren't sure what to think about Vahlen. Sure, you were both genetically related. Identical, even. However, behavior wise, you couldn't be any more different. Vahlen was born in a regular household environment, raised as a normal girl and worked as a regular woman. You? Born in a literal test tube and then dumped in one of the most horrid hellpits in the planet to fend for yourself. Yeah, you TOTALLY weren't a little bitter there.But honestly, Dad -THE PRODUCER- felt more like family than she ever did.Then again, you were being a bit unfair to her. She didn't even know you existed, either, and it was kind of a shock for the both of you. Anyways, you'd be a serious bitch to turn down her attempts to reach out to her, anyways.The monorail finally glides to a stop and you get out with the rest of the crowd. It's only a short walk to the hotel at that point, and you carefully cross the street and head for the lobby. You then realize you should probably call ahead to let Vahlen know you're coming. Don't want to walk in on her changing or something like that stupid Producer...>Call ahead to see if she's ready.>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.>Other
>>37364189Oh damn, I was hoping we might have a Rin thread to exploit the new Idolmaster stuff.Also using her coupon to have fun with P-san. As for Julie I guess confront her parents or something involving the cop she thought of as her father.
>>37364374>Call ahead to see if she's ready.
>>37364374>>Call ahead to see if she's ready.
>>37364189>Rin already had a thread for herselfAll those unused screencaps.
>>37364374>>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.
>>37364374>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.Seems the more "Cole" action
>>37364374>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.
>>37364374>>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.SHENANIGANS AND XCOMMERY AHOY
>>37364374>>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.time for heart brake
>>37364189Niko should do another guerrilla concert. That seems more her thing.
>>37364189Yes, I would even a
>>37364374>Call ahead to see if she's ready.Cole is learning tact and politeness!Producer would be overjoyed if he saw this.
>>37364431>oh, there you are Cole. Just in time. I was wondering if you could assist me in capturing some escaped "specimens"
>>37364374>>Eh, you're already here. She's expecting you anyways.Time for Cole Squared.
>>37364374Eh, she already knew you were coming. Might as well just head up there. You hit up the elevator, subtly giving it a bit of an extra charge so it would go up to the sixth floor faster. You also fry the the audio system while you're in there. You couldn't fucking stand the crap they played.The elevator doors open smoothly with a DING and you step out into the hallway. Hotels always sort of creeped you out for some reason. Maybe it was because of how the halls just seem to stretch on forever, with identical doors on either side. It was just surreal. Finally, you reach the room Vahlen was supposed to be in. You casually pull the keycard she gave you out of your jacket pocket and slide it into the reader and open the door--only to see a bloody and beaten Vahlen tied to a chair and surrounded by three masked men. Both you and Vahlen make eye contact for a split second as her assailants turn to see who just arrived. Vahlen only says one word."RUN!!!!!!">You need to get out of here!>You need to save her!>You need to KILL THEM ALL.>Other
>>37364746>You need to save her!>You need to KILL THEM ALL.PIKA PI!

>>37365093Thunderbolt's a bitch.
>>37365143At least it wasn't a nat 1. The dice are fickle after all.
So I'm guessing Umbrella's looking for Belle, and now they found us....
Let's call Sparky and go on a revenge spree at Umbrella.
Fools you have angered the wild Cole and now you shall face punishment. I hope you all packed rubber booties because its electric.
>>37365093You lightning is quick and deadly as it always was. You reach out a hand and a pair of lightning bolts lance out, strike the two closest men right in the chest. You could see their skeletons for a brief second as they spasmed from the energy and collapsed in smoking heaps. Unfortunately, the third one was directly behind Vahlen, and you weren't confident enough in your aim to hit him without hitting her. However, you see him reaching for what was undoubtedly a holstered weapon.Fuck. He was basically across the room. You could charge and hope to close the distance before he was finished drawing, or you could try shooting a lower intensity bolt at him, to minimize the risk to Vahlen.>Charge>Fire a bolt.>Other
>>37365274>>ChargeWe were made to survive.

>>37365533>cue ONLY MUH RAILGUNhttp://youtu.be/Tms93VDTgKk
>>37365510You aim is straight and true, and your taser bolt strikes the third man directly between the eyes, causing him to spasm. With a new opening, you dash forward and aim a brutal roundhouse kick, catching him in the side of the head and sending him flying right through the glass balcony door. He groans but doesn't get up."You should've just... run." Vahlen coughs."Shut up." You grunt as you kneel down and cut the ropes tying Vahlen down. Christ, she was a total mess. You've come out of street brawls looking better, and it's a wonder she's still conscious.A few respect points right there.As you sling Vahlen's arm around your shoulder to carry out, she mutters something that you can't quite hear."What? You gotta speak up." You grunt as you start dragging her to the door and manage to open it when she speaks again."There's... still one more." She croaks.You then hear a toilet flush and turn your head to see a massive, very familiar man walk out of the the bathroom. He sees the downed men and turns to see you, and you both freeze for a split second as you both try to gauge the situation.>RUN>FIGHT>Other

>>37365998Because they found out about her involvement in the break out of their idol? Because she hid info about Cole from them? Because she ate the last donut?
>>37365717>Daddy help!Fixed it for you
Whatever the reason, reaction is the same.We are NOPE-ing outta this bitch like whoa.
Moeducer to the rescue.
>>37365695OH GOD DAMN YOU WERE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS AT ALL.Fortunately, you're already at the door and slam it closed, firing a small but intense bolt of electricity to melt the lock shut. That will buy you a couple of seconds. You quickly drag Vahlen down the hallway towards the elevators as you hear HUNK commencing to break the hotel room door down. If you were alone, without having to carry Vahlen's half conscious ass, you might have been able to take him. Might. Now, however, you had no other choice. You switch on your Harbinger connection and ping Dad. Producer!"DAAAAAAD!" You wail. "I NEED HELP.""What's wrong?" The Producer asks, his concern obvious. "I'm being chased by Umbrella goons, including that scary HUNK dude!" You grunt as repeatedly press the elevator button as if it would make it come to your floor faster. Down the hall, you can see the door splintering. It wasn't going to hold much longer."Okay, I'm gathering up the other idols right now! We'll be sending them in the Hornet. Just hold on!"Finally, the elevator doors slide open and you drag Vahlen inside. Your finger hovers over the buttons, though. You could head to roof, where it would be easier for the Hornet to reach you, but then you'd be a sitting duck up there if they weren't fast enough. You could try fleeing the hotel on foot, which would afford you more cover, but then it'd be harder for the other to reach you...>Head for the roof.>Head for the ground floor.>Other

>>37366265>Head for the ground floor.Remember we got Vahlen with us. We might be able to beat him with the thunder strike but we have to worry about her safety first. A roof doesn't really offer much in terms of hiding or running to do so.
So I know this is all about the daughterus right now but I was wondering if we'd get a chance to play as Jenner and resolve her brother subplot before the end as well.
>>37366265>Head for the ground floor.Only reason I'm saying this is because we're in an escort mission. 1v1, we'd probably FINAL SHOWDOWN on the roof.

>>37366437I always imagine P-san looking like the guy on the left but has the smile on the guy to the right.
>>37366265You hit the button for the ground floor. And slump the ground alongside Vahlen as the doors slowly close. At least now Vahlen seemed to be more conscious and alert. You guess having three men not constantly torturing her kind of helped. "So what the hell happened?" You ask. "Did they find out about Belle?" "No.. not that." Vahlen shakes her head. "It's you they're after. They saw you during your stadium performance and got suspicious. They tricked me into coming back to Delta City and that's when they started questioning me... but I didn't tell them anything."Oh god. OH GOD. This was all your fault! Umbrella never would have suspected anything if you'd never gone up on stage...>It can't be helped. What's done is done.>Apologize to Vahlen. >Other

>>37366682>>Apologize to Vahlen.We need to destroy Umbrella if we are to enjoy any peace of mind.
You know, after all the other times she was out in public (viral video, amusement park, etc.), I'm kind of surprised she wasn't found out sooner....
>>37366682>>Apologize to Vahlen.>OtherFor not frying them to death earlier.
>>37366682>Apologize to Vahlen. >OtherThank her for being strong
>>37366682"Hey... I'm really sorry." You say solemnly. "This is all my fault.""Don't be silly." Vahlen manages a weak but cheerful smile as she brushes a hand through your hair. "It was wonderful seeing you shine on stage. It was unequivocal proof that you're a regular human being, just like the rest of us."Oh man, don't tear up. Don't tear up.Finally, the elevator door opens. You give a scowl and evil eye to the people gathered outside to get them to clear a path for you as you drag Vahlen to the front doors. Already, you can hear shouting and footsteps behind you, as well as ominous black SUVs bearing the Umbrella logo speeding down the street. >Escape by foot down the alleys.>Hijack a vehicle.>Other

Rolled 10 (1d20)>>37367114You spot an alley just down the street that you could squeeze into. It was too narrow for those Umbrella SUVs to fit in, which would buy you some time. You quickly drag her towards the alley as the Umbrella goons close in...>roll 1d20

>>37367379You fool! Cole will go full supervillainess if that happens! Do you want P-san to have to put down his own daughteru?!
>>37367315Fuck. You did NOT have time for this. You take a deep breath and raise your foot before stamping it down on the ground hard.And everything around you goes dark.The EMP wave you release not only fries all the streetlights and cellphones and personal electronics around you, but also the electronic control systems of those Umbrella SUVs, causing them to spin out of control and crash, buying you some more time to duck into the alley as the street devolves into mass panic. You then bring out your own phone, specially shielded thanks to Falynn, and dial a number you didn't think you would call today."Kaneda!" You yell. "Pick up the damn phone already!""Whoa, Cole, what's up?" Your totally-not-your-boyfriend asks."I need a real, REAL big favor!" You ask. "I got some corporate goons after me and I need a ride out of District 2!""Got it!" Kaneda affirms. "I'm uh, not with the gang at the moment.

So what exactly IS our general policy if our idols get captured?Attempt escape? Be cooperative?
>>37367646That depends who's captured them. We have to follow the normal protocols if she's in the hands of another idol company. If Cole's captured here, however, no holds barred.
>>37367469"No, I need you here, NOW!" You yell."Got it, I'll be there right away!" He assures you.And barely seconds later, you see Kaneda zoom in on his signature red bike."You called for a ride?" He grins.That's really odd. How did he get here so fast..."Were you following me?" You raise an eyebrow suspiciously."Oh, of course not! Not like I was wondering why you were going to a fancy hotel in District 2 all of sudden, as if maybe you were seeing some guy who was way richer and poshier than me..."Ha, he was worried you were cheating on him? It was almost adorable. Unfortunately, you didn't have time to give him shit about it. You quickly set Vahlen down on the backseat of his bike."Get somewhere safe!" You instruct him."You're not coming with us?" He blinks.>Gotta make sure they don't follow you.>Can your bike handle it?>Other

>>37367992"Can your bike handle it?" You ask skeptically. You know it could handle two people. You've ridden with him on it before, but you've never seen it try to carry three."Of course it can!

Rolled 5, 3, 20 = 28 (3d20)>>37368229"If you say so..." You awkwardly mount the bike. "All right, let's go!" Kaneda roars as he throttles up the bike. You're nearly thrown off the back when the bike boosts forward. "There's a guy I know in District Four! Fixes us up all the time after street fights, and never asks questions!""Great." You nod as you see a trio of Umbrella SUVs pull around the corner. Looks like they weren't giving up the chase.>roll 3d20

>>37368515While trying to keep a grip on the bike, you reach one arm out and aim it at the closest SUV. You let loose a lightning bolt, causing the engine to explode in flames. You shoot another one at the second SUV in quick succession, shorting out its control systems and causing it to veer into a street light. However, the third SUV closes much quicker than you expected, and actually bumps into the bike, shaking the whole vehicle and causing it wobble dangerously.>roll 1d20

>>37368798You try to keep your grip on the bike, but it's shaking too much and you slide off, instinctively tucking yourself into a ball to limit injury. You hit the pavement hard and roll."Cole-""GO!" You yell at Kaneda. "It's me they're after anyways! Just keep going and don't stop!""All right..." Kaneda grunts as his bike speeds up."Cole, we're homing in on your position now." You hear Rochelle's voice. "Just hold on a little longer."As you slowly get back up to your feet and dust yourself off, the SUV comes to a halt. You see HUNK get out from the driver's side, along with a pair of Umbrella guards. However, another passenger, a man with dark glasses, exits."Cole." He says with a clipped, even tone. "I think this charade has gone on long enough. Just turn yourself in, and nobody else will be hurt.">How about, NO.>Who the hell are you?>If it'll get you to stop chasing Vahlen?>Other

>>37369282"Yeah, for you." You scowl as you pull a coin from your pocket. There was this little move you've been practicing ever since you've been reading about magnets, and now was as good a time as any to test your theory out. You imagine a straight line between you and your target and concentrate. Electricity crackles and the coin vibrates rapidly in your grip before you finally let go.>RAILGUN learned!The sonic boom rattles your bones as the coin goes hypersonic, plowing right into the parked SUV and causing it to explode, knocking the two guards flat and sending HUNK blasting off to god knows where. The suit is knocked on his ass."Look like you didn't even need us." You hear Rochelle glower as the Hornet FINALLY arrives."Took you guys long enough." You grunt."Well, whaddya say, wanna blow this joint?" Sparky grins.You're not sure what type of "blow" Sparky was referring to..."Or can we rough that guy up?" Julie cracks her knuckles.>You think they got the message. Let's get out of here.>Better rough up that suit a bit before you go.>Bring him along so Dad can have a few words with him...>Other

>>37369593>Bring him along so Dad can have a few words with him...
You know....what if "Cole" didn't get that electricity genemod? We know that there were at least 5 other clones Mr. Vahlen made. So what if one of them got it instead, where would they differ....?
>>37369658They'd be same because they're clones?
>>37369593>sending HUNK blasting off to god knows whereGuess that's not the last we'll see of him.>You imagine a straight line between you and your target and concentrate.Pretty sure that's not how a railgun works exactly. Not that I'm complaining.
>>37369658Then it'll differ on the upbringing that the clones get.
>>37369705Well to be fair, Cole doesn't really explain how she 'uses' her powers. Hypothetically, if P-san were to direct control her, he would probably spend like 90% of his time trying to figure out how the hell it worked.>>37369710All someone has to do is tell the clone that they were made with non-dominant genes, and for her to adopt a British accent.
>>37369593"Bring him along so Dad can have a few words with him." You grunt."Hmph. Looks like you're getting really comfortable calling Producer 'Dad'." Rochelle pouts."What's wrong, jealous?" You chuckle as Julie and Melissa haul the Umbrella suit away and toss him into the Hornet."As if." Rochelle snorts. "Hey, uh, did Kaneda tell you how Vahlen is doing?" You ask nervously as NEMO slowly lifts the Hornet off."Yeah, he gave us a call." Rochelle nods. "The doc says she's fine. Pretty beat up but nothing that can't heal on its own. Producer already sent Stig to go pick her up.""Ah, that's good." You nod and turn to the suit, now tied up and planted uncomfortably between Julie and Melissa, who constantly shoot him poisonous looks.>Ask the suit something. (specify)>Leave all the talking to Dad.>Other
>>37369819>Leave all the talking to Dad.Social fu is not Cole's forte and she knows it.

>>37369593>>Bring him along so Dad can have a few words with him...But don't keep him in the cell for long. It's Wesker. He's never helpless.
>>37369850Wait a sec, which version of Wesker?Superpowered or not?It doesn't really matter, he's dangerous either way.
>>37369819>>OtherSpent time zapping the asshole at different voltages.
>>37369876Heh, my reply came in way too late.>>37369876Like you said, any version of him is dangerous.
>>37369819The trip back is a very quiet one for you, as you're not in the mood to say anything. You just glower at the suit, and he glowers back while Julie, Melissa, and Sparky each loudly discuss ways that they'll make his life miserable, like breaking his kneecaps or putting grenades in places grenades normally shouldn't go. Morgan suggested making him swallow a light bulb, which sounded like a very Russian thing to do. Finally, the Hornet returns to the office and the girls drag the suit away to the holding cells. "Are you okay, Cole?" The Producer rushes forward and pats you down for injuries."I'm fine, Dad." You laugh as you push him away. "As if a few corporate goons could hurt me!""You weren't sounding so confident when you called for help." The Producer smirked."Y-yeah, well, I was just pretending so it would sound urgent!" You huff, crossing your arms and turning away from. God, he could be so irritating sometimes! "I totally had things under control!""I'm sure you did." The Producer chuckled and his expression suddenly darkened. "Perhaps I should have a few words with our new guest..."At that moment, you see the company SUV pull in. Stig then exits and brings a bandaged Vahlen out, and Stig settles her onto a waiting stretching while Dr. Stiles and his nurse carts her away.>Go see Dad do what he does best.>Go check up on Vahlen.>Other
>>37369999>Go see Dad do what he does best.
>>37369999>>Go check up on Vahlen.

>>37369999>>Go check up on Vahlen.SISTER!
>>37369999>Otherask Julie to record Dad so we can go to vahlen
Guys, what if we checked up on Vahlen and, if she's well enough, brought her to go see what P-san is doing? We'll miss the first bit, but she deserves to watch him go to town on the guys who roughed her up too, right?
>>37369999You decide to follow Vahlen to the infirmary, where she's put up in one of the beds."Oh, hello, Cole." Vahlen smiles. "Come to check up on me?""Erm, something like that." You smile awkwardly. "I just wanted to say sorry again for causing all that trouble for you.""And I thought I told you that doesn't matter." Vahlen manages to sit up and flick you in the forehead. "You've grown up to be a wonderful young woman, Cole, and it makes me so sad that I wasn't there to help make it happen.""Well, I got your genes, so I guess that counts as something." You point out."Perhaps, but genes aren't everything, as you have demonstrated.""True." You nod. "So, uh, after all this, this may sound really weird, but can I call you Sis?""That would be wonderful." Vahlen smiles warmly. And now you got that funny feeling in your chest, the same one when you were around Dad and Kaneda. That one sensation you could never adequately describe or figure out.God you hated it so much!---(cont)
>>37370250"So, what was the name... Wesker, was it?" The Producer asked as he paced around the room. "I believe you understand now that Cole is off limits?""I believe the test subject known as Cole is no longer a viable investment." Wesker manages to say evenly and smoothly despite his injuries. "I can guarantee that Umbrella will no longer pursue her.""And you'll properly compensate Dr. Vahlen, correct? As well as a generous severance package since I doubt she'll be working at your company anymore.""With her skills, she'd have no problem-"The Producer gives him an unamused stare."-accepting our generous severance package." Wesker finishes. "Good, just so we understand." The Producer smiles. "If I ever get a whiff, or even a vague suspicion that you or your company are coming after my daughter again, I will guarantee you that I will burn you and your entire corporation to the fucking ground and then piss on the ashes. Is that clear?""Crystal.""Just so we understand." "Shit, when did Dad get so cool?" You frown. "I know, right?" Julie giggles."Pretty impressive, if I have to say so myself." Rochelle nods.Well, you suppose that's what Producers.. and Dads... did. To make sure their girls were safe and sound. You see Dad turn to the camera and give a thumbs up."Thanks, Dad." You smile.>And that's all for tonight! We'll be returning to our regular schedule next week, which means Ace Combat on Friday, Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday, and PJ Witches on Sunday! Don't miss them!
>>37370253Thanks for the fun run, Merc!
Looking back at it all, it's odd how Cole became one of our favourites so soon. What P-san said to Cole on Christmas Day was also a nice call back to when we first recruited her.
>>37370253See you Friday, Merc. Great thread as always.
>>37370253GOD DAMN PRODUCER IS GANGSTER!
>>37370253Why is P-san so awesome. I will be pretty disappointed if we don't get to fight as him at least once before the end.
>>37370253Thanks for the thread. So what did Cole spend her coupon on?
