With each of the three rival magical girls left doubting themselves and their objectives in the wake of Makoto's urgings, the only mystery left remaining appears to be their patron; the deceased magical girl, Black Pepper, of whom you know or understand virtually nothing. Still, with things going well, Makoto and the gang occupy their time with the inter-scholastic festival, in the hopes that Osataka will beat Ichida.Additionally, Shun Tanakawa encountered yet another magical girl that may be an old ally of Black Pepper. Not that the group had time to linger on that idea- as Umeki Yasuka mistakenly activated the unbound foci, and has begun a transformation!> Threads #1-8 Archive: http://archive.loveisover.me/d/search/subject/mahou/> Threads #9 onwards: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Maiden%20White> Alt Archive: https://archive.moe/tg/search/subject/maiden%20white/type/op/order/asc/> Twitter: https://twitter.com/questqyubey> Ask: http://ask.fm/Qyubey> Status: http://pastebin.com/342hhN8HYou are Makoto Kiryoka; a teenage boy with a penchant for getting into strange situations. You bear the power of the magical girl Maiden White against the wicked souls that seek to terrorise the innocent.> Need to get an opinion on something: Would we prefer going back to a flat d20 or d100 roll for actions, or do we prefer the dice pool? It's been pointed out that with broader dice pools, the chances of getting more successes actually doesn't scale particularly well (considering results of 1 are negative) so I'm considering going back to the old method of just a roll plus modifier. Might be a bit easier to compile and read also.
>>41120370"...Makoto?""Huh!?" You flinch, hearing someone say your name."You were kind of drifting off there." Shun comments, brushing some hair from your head tenderly. The jostling of the bus acts a reminder of your current situation. Last day of the school competition, hopefully to be the last you'll see of Mai and her lackeys. Sen on the seat in front of you nonwithstanding..."Sorry, just had a lot on my mind lately." You assure her, smiling. With all the commotion with you and your friends lately, it's been an eventful week. Not that any week following your becoming a magical girl has been particularly restful."Yeah, you can say that again. But all this kind of pales in comparison to the exam block anyway." Shun sighs, casting her glance jealously towards Umeki. She may be having fun around your school, but she doesn't know the pain that you two feel around academic testing."Still... summer break after that!" She exclaims, unable to hold back her giddiness."Big fan of it?" You ask. She happily nods."Most people don't like sports in the heat so that's a bummer, but I like spending sweaty days down by rivers and the like." She recalls fondly. You're still picturing her in the wilderness with wet clothing. At least your expression amuses her. "I've always wanted to go to the ocean though. My family doesn't really have the cash or ability to travel too much.""Hueheh... Wait," you shake your head, ridding it of lewd fantasies, "Didn't you move here?""Osataka's not exactly beachfront, Makoto. We've moved a little bit but I've always been a mountain girl, I guess." She shrugs. "Still, if I had the chance, I'd just lounge on the beach from dawn til' dusk.""Sounds nice." You say, leaning against the window again as your mind drifts back to your concerns. Lost in your daydreams, you can't help but put that old shine maiden's words out of your head. What is it with creepy old ladies and vague advice?[1/2]
>>41120396"Oh well." You sigh as the bus approaches the school gates. You, Shun, and Umeki all disembark and head into the school grounds, eager to see this competition reach a close. As for the last day, it seems things are nicely going out with a bang. There's more people around than have been for all the previous days, and some have even set up little stalls to sell trinkets and food. Little early for a culture festival setup, maybe, but Shun certainly doesn't mind all the food on display."Look at all that sugar!" She exclaims at a particularly succulent cake."It's beautiful~" Umeki weeps at it, sharing the delrium. Slaves to their sweet tooth, those two. The amount of people attending events makes you wonder how your own school has actually been doing. You've been grabbing clubs, sure, but whether the points that Osataka has won will be enough to surmount Ichida eludes you. Yui would probably know."Heh, and if we win, Mai even has to treat us to our holiday." You recall. That prize is on the line, and he knows it as well as you do. Beyond just bankrupting a jerk, you could use that vacation as a nice relaxant after all this chaos. That alone would make all the effort worth it."Alrighty, what to do first..." You mutter, considering your options. Yui's probably up in the councilroom, or you could track down Hiroko, Shizuko, and Saito. Judging by the noise, there seems to be some event going on in the 'stadium' too - might be worth a look. Glancing around, you also notice Sen in amid the teenagers attending this school. Her presence surprises you until you recall that she isn't enrolled at any schools here. No doubt she'll be looking for Mai and Naru around.> Check in with Yui.> Find your friends.>> Call them [Hiroko/Shizuko/Saito].> Check the stadium.> Appeal to more clubs, ASAP.> Wander.> Talk to Sen.
>>41120541> Appeal to more clubs, ASAP.Must ensure victory!

>>41120978Shun and Umeki can amuse themselves with the booths here, you've got to check in with Yui. You leave the two of them to stare at the cakes on sale and instead head into the school. The sight of more people than has been in the past week makes you a little self conscious about your attire, but most of them are still either students from abroad or far more engrossed in their own business. Besides, the majority are still outside anyway. You make it to the councilroom without incident only to find someone pounding at the door with his fist."Open up, Yui. I know you're in there!" Naoki demands, pressing his ear up against the door. You hear nothing from the other side, but he seems undissuaded."I saw you run in there! Stop being such a child!" He whines as he fiddles with the handle in a decidedly childish manner. Doesn't seem like you'll be able to get in there without dealing with him (why is he at school?).> Come back later.> Scare Naoki off with affection.> Ask what the deal is.> Yell at him.> Get Yui to open the door.
>>41121108>> Ask what the deal is.Well let's see what's going on now.

>>41121108Ask what the deal is.
>>41121409If Yui is a girl in distress, it's your job as a man to save her - and the best way to do that is be feminine for Naoki."Perfect." You tell yourself. Nothing contradictory there. Naoki continues to hammer his fist against the door to the councilroom before taking a step back and crossing his arms, scowling at the door. You adjust your skirt and shirt and take a breath before launching yourself forward."Naoki!" You exclaim, slamming into him from the side and wrapping your arms around him. He crumples from the sudden impact and blinks in astonishment."Wha-Who!?" He blathers, holding his arms up and staring down at you in confusion. He doesn't seem to recognise you as you rub your face against his firm chest. You look up."Aw, don't you remember me?" You ask, winking one eye. He gags as a cold shiver travels up his spine."Makoto..." He mutters, standing very still. You trace your index finger up his chest to his chin."I can't believe you'd come all this way just to see me. Here I was, thinking you didn't even like me." You say, feigning sadness. "I've never been happier to be wrong!" Almost immediately after saying that you feel a firm grip at your sides as you are forcibly pushed back.[1/2]
>>41121734"M-Makoto, please don't m-misunderstand this," he clarifies, "I'm not here for you. I'd never be here for you - not in a thousand years." His eye twitches slightly as he strains to smile."So it's forbidden love~?" You ask, tilting your head timidly. You can practically hear him shrink back from you. In that moment of faltering, you twirl yourself around in his arm, pirouetting into his chest and embrace once more."What say we take this... somewhere more private?" You ask, sliding a hand underneath his shirt. You pin him against the opposite wall and window as he uses it to steady himself against your advances. Any more and he's likely to pass out - so you obviously decide to keep going, this time moving a hand over his pan-"SNK!" The two of you flinch as the sound of a snort echos from behind the door. You both glance at it to see the door slightly ajar, and Yui's face, bleeding profusely from the nose peeking out."...Oop." She squeaks, seconds before trying to slam the door again. Naoki grabs it just before she can though and struggles against it."Filling my computer with that junk, get out here!" He exclaims, rage renewed. You sigh, realizing this actually is Yui's fault. Not that teasing Naoki is exclusively her domain. Still, he held off that assault better than you expected - sure he was putty in your hands, but he held his ground at least. You are... slightly curious about how far you could take it before he'd actually bolt, but not sure about how much you'd be able to stomach. It's gay chicken, essentially.> Resume your caressing.>> See how far you can take it.>> Just gross him out enough to make him leave.> Take your shirt off (make things more intense)> Pretend to kiss him, as a sure-fire scare tactic> Yui, open the door and apologise.

Or a boy?!""I'm whatever you want me to be~""GYUH!"
>>41121934sounds like an adorable omake.btw, guys, it's been a while, but I've been keeping inventory.Makoto is currently not wearing underwear.FYI.possibly this gives you a bonus to gay chicken, the most exciting of past times.
>>41122286You know, with all of this lewd, lighthearted stuff going on (especially the lewd stuff) by the time we reach the darker stuff AKA Maiden Black, we're gonna break our necks with a sudden mood shift.
>>41122350No, we're going to be thrown out of the car through the windshield when we hit that mood shift.
>>41122350If I remember right, corrupted Makoto was supposed to be absurdly strong.like world ending, kremheld gretchen strong.
>>41121934Eh, why not? It's not like you'll be able to attempt this anywhere else. Short of hunting down Naoki at his mansion, you don't really meet with the guy all that much, nor do you have an excuse to fondle him. Clearly, taking advantage of this situation is the best idea.With Naoki holding the door, he isn't able to hold you back like before, and you rub up against his back with your hands on his shoulders. You had tried to throw your arms around his head, but the guy is surprisingly tall (or maybe you're just annoyingly short). You immediately feel his reaction, and sudden worry as he'll have to release the door to remove you. Instead, he just tries to pull the door harder."I wonder if you're ticklish..." You mutter, running your fingers along his gut and under his arms. He twitches, confirming your hypothesis, so you continue, hindering his strength and allowing Yui to hold onto the door."D-Dammit, stop it, Makoto!" He yells at you. "This is between me and my sister.""I'd like to be between you and your sister." You tell him, maneuvering around to his front by ducking under his arms."GYRK!" He gags. You hear Yui snort again, probably not against that idea."Hehe, just kidding!" You say, which instantly relieves him - at least until you slide your hands up his shirt again. "It's only you I want to be underneath~" You correct. You can see his hands faltering at the handle, and you smirk.[1/2]
>>41122473"Couldn't you imagine it? Just the two of us, naked and sweating under the moon-lit light... Don't say you haven't thought about it." You tease, licking a finger. Putting that picture in his head is enough of a blow, and he releases the door-handle, the force of which throws the two of you back. You throw your hands up in triumph, sitting atop the fallen Naoki as Yui keeps her door shut, blowing a raspberry through the window in the door."I'm the best- AR~OUND!" You announce, laughing with your hands at your hips. He just glares upward, defeated."Nngh, f-fine! Yui can't stay in there forever, I'll get her... eventually." He concedes, looking to the side. "Now please get off me." He asks, very plainly, trying to maintain what composure he has left."Aw, but I like you in this position." You say, smiling and leaning back as you sit on his chest."Ugh, knock it off. I get it, you're teasing me to help Yui out. Don't worry, I'm leaving now so you can just drop the act." He sighs. "At this point you're only embarrassing yourself. Not to mention wearing a female uniform? Ridiculous..."This time, your eye twitches. Dammit, this guy... He lost and now he's trying to act like this was the plan all along - like your teasing was just an act to play. You force a smile and slowly slide back, acting as if you're moving to get off, but just as you reach the base of his abdomen, you stop."An act, huh?" You ask, positioning yourself. Judging by his face and a bit of rigidity you can feel beneath you, it's an act that seems to be working.> You call this an act!? *show underwear* or lack thereof!> It hurts when you say things like that... *be actually sad*> So what kind of things did Yui put on your computer?>> Things like... this? (show your naked apron pictures)> Punch him in the crotch. (Jerk!)> Release him, you've had your fun.

>>41122517> It hurts when you say things like that... *be actually sad*> So what kind of things did Yui put on your computer?

>>41122517> It hurts when you say things like that... *be actually sad* b-baka!

>>41122853Dear lord you have a diseased mind.
>>41122853is Makoto /fit/ enough to have abs like that?we already know he doesnt have the gyaru look. source manga is very good, quite fun. really unfortunate censorship.
>>41122902Makoto has a fuccboi physique.I hope Makoto has a huge angry muscleman form somewhere in there to contrast the girlyness of Maiden White
>>41122978We failed at making a female version of that form 5~6 threads back I believe.
>>41122978Are you implying we are not manly enough anon.
>>41122978Just gotta stick in the dragon accessories and go dragon modo.
>>41123010By the end of the quest we are going to be the most feminine thing on the planet.
>>41123010I'm implying we're not swole enough. Sometimes you just gotta punch a man through a brick wall.
>>41122853"You know..." You mutter as Naoki continues to sit on the floor, looking away from you. His eyes glance over for a second, which is enough notice a genuinely sad expression on your face. "It hurts when you say things like that.""I-" He blinks and actually looks remorseful for a second."I guess it's just easy for you to break a girl's heart like that, huh?" You ask, sliding off of him to the side and sniffing. "To just cast your conquests away and shatter their feelings into a million pieces!" You shriek hauntingly, bawling your eyes out into your arms. This draws more than a few glances from people further down the hall, to which Naoki twitches."It's not- I didn't... Agh, you!" He grumbles. That anger does crumble when he sees your sadness."Agh... I'm... sorry?" He says, slightly confused himself. "...Could you forgive me?" You think to yourself."Hm... maybe. Answer me something. Truthfully." You ask."...Okay?" He replies."What did Yui put on your computer?""OH COME ON!" He shouts back."No, no, I'm curious!" You exclaim as he rubs his temples. "Was it... anything like this?" You ask, flipping your naked apron pictures up on your phone. Naoki glances at it before his eyes widen and he coughs."So it WAS like this! Oh, you've got to send me those pictures!" You insist, smiling happily."Ugh, get them from Yui." He grumbles, tearing his eyes away from your phone."Come on! I'll let you kiss me like old times~?""PFT- I thought you were a girl back then!" He exclaims, standing back up."And you didn't think that just then?" You ask, referring to your crying."I-" He pauses, and seems to groan. "...What the hell are you?" You shrug in response[1/2]
>>41123255"Whatever I feel like at the time." You tell him, solving nothing. "For Yui's brother, you could afford to be less judgmental." You suggest as you walk over to the council door."Tch' I'm not. If you were a girl, I'd be fine with whatever." He scoffs. You pause at the door and glance back."...Whatever? Even a masculine girl?""I don't need to answer that." He says as he walks off down the hall. Hm, such a strange boy, you think as you enter the councilroom, unharassed."Okay, Yui, he's gone, I- ARGH!" You shriek as you catch sight of her, dabbing her bloodied face."Oh, t-thank you." She wobbles. "A-And for the show as well.""Are you... okay?" You ask, concerned. At this point you're wondering what she's still pumping through her veins. Luckily she nods."Y-Yes. mostly." She replies. "But with such a resistant man and lovely trap all over each other, I'm surprised I'm still standing." She sighs, holding her cheeks. Maybe she should go to the nurse...> How're the points standing?> Heal her with powers.> Yuuki's a magical girl now.> Where's everyone else?> What's Mai up to?> You do realize that was your brother, right?

With a hand at her shoulder, you share your enhanced healing factor for long enough that she recovers."Whoo~ Thank you, Makoto." She says, no longer on the verge of fainting. God forbid Yui ever actually watches porn."You can thank me by sending me those pictures" You reply, sitting down at a chair on the opposite side of the desk."Oh my, don't tell me you're interested in traps as well?" She asks as she stands up to prepare some tea. You stare at her with a blank expression."...You're serious?" You ask, raising an eyebrow."Well obviously you've been into girls, Makoto, but I suppose I haven't really kept up to date on what you think of boys." She explains."I. slept. with. Saito." You say, clarifying each syllable."Oh you know Saito doesn't count." She mutters, picking some tea bags up. You... can't really fight that one."Fufu, you really have changed since first I met you. For the better, I think." She smiles, leaning against the table. "I'll send you my pictures when I have the time, though I think I'd prefer to act them out." She winks, flexing her fingers."Hehe, maybe sometime. Have you seen anyone else today?" You ask her, kicking your feet up on the desk. Yui frowns as she returns with the kettle to pour some tea."Saito was in early, I think he's in the room we use for the cleaning committee." Yui explains, pouring the tea and trying to ignore your uncouth ways. "I think Shizuko and Hiroko have been appealing to other clubs, and uh..."[1/2]
>>41124060> We will tell her about Yuuki, but in a little bit."...Uh?" You ask, as Yui lead off-midsentence. She continues pouring into a full cup as you notice a drop of blood hit the tea. Confused, you notice Yui staring right up your skirt; now pointed at her since you threw your feet up on the desk. You squeak and pull your legs back down, blushing. Yui seats herself and wipes her nose."Y-You can put them back up, if you'd like." She offers, smiling warmly. You decline the invitation."Speaking of clubs, how are we doing on points? We all set for a Mai-funded vacation yet?" You ask, smirking. Yui doesn't share your attitude."About that... While yes, many clubs have decided to fall under your banner, I'm afraid we might have a problem..." She admits."What kind of problem?" You ask."Well... Mai has been courting clubs from both sides.""WHAT!?" You say, standing up. "That's allowed!?""Ngh, there was no rule technically against it." Yui sighs. "In terms of raw points, Osataka and Ichida are actually quite well-matched, but ultimately we are pulling ahead. But by garnering support from clubs that won on our side, Mai can steal points that would otherwise be ours.""Arrgh," you grumble, "that's a dirty trick.""Mai is resourceful, if nothing else." Yui sighs. "Why did she get so underhanded, I wonder...""Well, maybe we can play at her game!" You suggest excitedly. "Get Ichida clubs to support us!""Possibly." Yui concurs. "But I doubt we'd be able to stand up to her reputation as an idol. Honestly, if we just had one more competitive club, we could probably pull through, but virtually every club has already participated in some form."Dammit, you're so close...> Can the newly-split crafts club participate separately?> We'll complain, and get those points rescinded!> We have to try to win those clubs back, even if Mai is an idol.> What if we beat her up?> What clubs haven't competed yet?

>>41124513"We have to try to win those clubs back!" You announce to Yui. "It's the right thing to do. I don't care if she's using her idol popularity, we'll win out!""I certainly hope so." She says with a nod. "Otherwise she'll walk away from all of this, scot-free.""Do you know what clubs have fallen?" You ask her, sitting back down. "Any with particularly high points?""It's mostly sports clubs, male-oriented naturally." Yui says, sipping her tea. "No doubt she's using a feminine lure for them." She giggles to herself at the thought, but regains her posterity promptly. You, however, know why she's laughing about Mai using 'feminine wiles'."The points are also decently scored in those groups, just enough to tip the scales in her favour.""Agh..." You groan, leaning back in your chair. "You said 'virtually all' the clubs right? Are there still some left?" You suggest. She thinks to herself."Mn, none that would work. Unless you can think of a way to make the cleaning committee competitive and with more members." She says with a shrug.> That's it!> Ngh, yeah..."What about the crafts club? They should have split up by now, right? We can use their fragments to-" Yui shushes you with a finger at your lip."The crafts club isn't split up yet, and even if they were, you can't just make new clubs to grab points." She points out. "I know; that was the first thing Mai actually tried to do.""That's annoying." You groan. So close, and yet she could be pulling the rug out from under all of you right at the end. Whatever you do, it's got to be done fast.> Appeal to clubs.> Find your friends.> Prepare the cleaning committee.> Confront Mai.
>>41124742> By Jove, you've got it!> Find your friends and then turn them all into maids.There are no rules against people being part of more than one club right?

>>41125202At Yui's joking suggestion, you slam your hands on the table, surprising her."That's it!" You call out."W-What?" She asks, confused."There may be no rules against making new clubs, but the cleaning committee has been around for a while. If all we need are new members, we can definitely compete against Ichida!" You tell her."I... appreciate your enthusiasm, but we don't even know if Ichida HAS anything to compete against." Yui points out. "But that might be worth looking into anyway, if the appeals fail. See if you can get the club ready anyway. We might need more members if this pans out.""Right!" You say, standing up and clenching your fist. With Yui handling this, you'll need the help of your friends to appeal and possibly compete if it comes to that, so for now you've got to locate them. Luckily, Saito is right in the committee room, and he might know where the others are."I'll be back later." You tell Yui as you head out the door; she nodding to you. Only a few steps away is the committee room itself, which you knock on the door to."Saito, are you in there?" You ask."...Uh, y-yes." You hear back, somewhat strangely quieter than you're used to for him. Shrugging you, open up the door and find yourself blinded by the ceiling lights for a second. Inside you can see Aoi, along with Ren & Kyo, who are handling some clothes."Hey Makoto. w-what's up?" He asks, sweating for some reason. You raise an eyebrow."Nothing, just wondering where people are. It's the last day to grab some points, and Mai's still ahead of us." You explain, glancing around."Yeah, of course, that makes sense." He says, standing up and fiddling with his hands, and some clothing. "S-Should we go?"> Yep, let's find the others.> Yeah...> Ooh, clothing!> Why are you sweating?> ...What's going on?
>>41125370>> Yep, let's find the others.

>>41125599Saito may try to deny it but he knows what will happen now.
>>41125612You stare at Saito for a minute, noticing some very odd behavior. Aside from just being evasive, he's kind of blocking your vision of the room for some reason. His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms... not terribly heavy; though you're curious as to what clothing he's carrying."...What's going on?" You ask, narrowing your eyes."W-What do you mean? Nothing... nothing's going on." He says, looking away."Then why are you so sweaty?" You ask, putting your hands on your hips."It's hot, y-y'know? People sweat when it's hot." He explains, wiping his brow. "I'm surprised you're not... sweating. Uh, Ren, Kyo! Don't you think it's hot?""Huh?" Kyo asks, confused. Saito glares at her. "Oh! Whew, sure is~" She gasps."Yeah, I'm just BOILING!" Ren announces, not exhausted in the slightest. Saito puts a hand over his face, but quickly stops when you notice."See? It's... it's hot." He says, gesturing at the two."Mmmmhm." You mumble, your eyes drifting down to the clothing in his grasp. "What's that clothing for then?" Almost immediately his eyes widen a bit as he glances down at the clothing."Oh, this? T-This is just," he mumbles, looking down at it. Once he catches sight of it, he sighs and unfolds it, "Oh whew, it's just the gakuran." He says, holding it up. It seems familiar to you.[1/2]
>>41125966"I found it out by the pool this morning, along with a bag and some other things." He says, setting it down on the table."Ugh, Shun..." You groan. She wasn't even concerned; immediately distracted by her sweet tooth. Saito's sudden relief at it being Shun's gakuran still seems strange to you. He's hiding something... what was he doing in this room? Saito's not even part of the cleaning committee, though if it comes to competing you could certainly ask him to help out."Shun's huh?" He mumbles, looking down at it."You seem surprised." You ask, probing."Well, you don't just find random uniforms around." He shrugs, back to his usual self. "I guess if it was Shun it makes more sense. Yep, I just brought it back for the fool, heh. That girl's unpredictable, probably went for a swim and forgot her things.""Probably..." You say, still leering. Saito taps on the table, still avoiding your gaze."So, you want to go? T-There's not much in here, eheh." He asks, holding the door open for you. Ren and Kyo are also standing quite rigidly, waiting for you to do something. Goddammit, what are they hiding? This is gonna bug you all day.> ...Yes, lets.> Oh whatever, we have bigger things at hand.> Why would you bring her uniform here?>> And what did you mean 'just the gakuran'?>> There was more clothing out, wasn't there?> You're a bad liar, Saito. What were you up to?>> Were you crossdressing? Please say yes.> Body check him.> Ahem, Ren? Kyo? Do you have something to tell me?
>>41126007>> ...Yes, lets.
>>41126007> Why would you bring her uniform here?>> And what did you mean 'just the gakuran'?> You're a bad liar, Saito. What were you up to?>> Were you crossdressing? Please say yes. You know I love crossdressing.
>>41126007>> You're a bad liar, Saito. What were you up to?>>> Were you crossdressing? Please say yes.
>>41126007> Were you crossdressing? Please say yes.> Oh whatever, we have bigger things at hand.

>>41126334"You're a bad liar, Saito." You tell him flatly to his face. He twitches and pauses."I have no idea what you mean, Makoto." He says, crossing his arms and closing his eyes."Don't play coy with me; you're stuttering, sweating, stumbling over your own words. What exactly were you up to?" You ask, poking him in the chest. He just remains silent at that. You shoot a glance at Ren & Kyo, but they don't seem to want to tell you anything either. Judging by those two though..."Were you crossdressing?" You ask with a sudden smile. He twitches again, but just keeps smiling. "Please say yes." You giggle."I..." He pauses, rolling his eyes around. "Uh, yes!""You- Huh!?" You say, surprised."Uh, yeah, I was. Aha, you got me!" He says, pointing at you. "I guess it rubs off on people... or something.""...You were crossdressing?" You ask him again."Mhm... sure." He says, nodding and still evading your gaze."You were wearing girls clothing? Willingly?" You say, clarifying."Y-Yeah?" He says, sweating again. This is not the reaction you were expecting; if he really was crossdressing, Saito would never willingly admit it. He HATES being feminine. That can only mean... whatever he was doing he thinks is WORSE than that! Now you really want to know."...Wait, but wasn't it-" Ren starts to ask Kyo before Saito slaps a hand over her mouth."Yuuup." He says, glaring down at Ren."...Agh!" You exclaim, getting frustrated. "Look, whatever, we have bigger things at hand. Come on, we have to find the others.""Uh, right." He says, heading out the door behind you as you grumble. Saito shoots one last look at the twins, pointing at the wardrobe in the corner before shutting the door. The two nod to him. You head down the hallway before you decide to speak to Saito again."Oh, and if you looove crossdressing so much, I have good news; we might be needing some more maids for the cleaning committee soon." You suggest to him. He grimaces.[1/2]
>>41126769"Uh, that was more of a one-time thing, and I didn't like it." He tries to assure you. "I'd just look terrible in a maids' dress, I'm sure. I bet the rest of the girls would love to help though, maybe you should get them." Weird, now he hates crossdressing again, you think. This flip-flopping secret keeper!> No buts, we need maids.> I'll let you go... if you tell me what you were doing?> Hrm, alright.With Saito's advice, you head out by the crafting club in search of Shizuko. You catch her, fairly quickly, sitting outside the room and flipping through things on her phone."Shizuko, we need-""More points." She mutters, still looking at her phone."...Uh, yes, because-""Mai stole your clubs." She completes for you."...Y-Yes, and-""You need to win them back." She continues. You stare at her silently until she looks up. "What? Yui texted me.""Ha, alright." You sigh. "But we still need to-"Find Hiroko.""LET ME TALK!" You shout, twitching your hands angrily. Shizuko isn't far, and seems to be watching the stadium below through some binoculars."She's keeping an eye on things down there, but refuses to let me wander." Shizuko groans."Because if I do, you'll get bored and go home. We need to be on absolute alert today!" Hiroko firmly adds, glaring over at her before looking back through her binoculars with a steely look. Shizuko shrugs and slinks back into her phone browsing.> Pinch her phone.> Ask Hiroko what she's seen.> Use your friends to appeal to clubs.> Ask them to join the cleaning committee.> Why's Hiroko so serious?> Hey everyone, Saito was crossdressing.
>>41126791>Hrm, alright.Best not to push him.> Hey everyone, Saito was crossdressing.> Why's Hiroko so serious?

>>41126984best moment in the show
>>41127082"Ohh I'll be getting them," you assure him, "but I need all the help I can get, and I think you'd look just fantastic." You say to him, smiling and tilting your head."Nope." He shoots back firmly, putting his hands in his pockets."Hrm... how about this: I'll let you off... IF you tell me what you were doing." You suggest to him, slyly grinning. At that he turns his head with a slight concern towards you."Tempting, but I doubt you can force me into anything, Makoto." He says. You pout at him."And after I took those pictures and made you that bento. You're so cruel." You say, playing up how ghastly it all is by throwing a hand up to your forehead and pretending to faint. Still, it does make him slightly guilty."...We'll see how much you need the help when the time comes." He grumbles, conceding. That's good enough for you, but it still surprises you how much he's hiding whatever happened in that room."What are you so afraid of anyway? I'm not gonna judge you; I'd probably join in!" You remind him."That's just what I'm afraid of." He sighs, just before you reach Hiroko and Shizuko.-----=====-----Hiroko's attitude seems more focused than usual, which strikes you as unusual."Hi Hiroko!" You say, waving at her as the two of you walk over. She takes her binoculars down to greet the both of you, giving a nice hug to Saito."Morning you two. I'm guessing Yui's already filled you in?" She asks. You nod back to her. "And I'm betting you want to try and win those clubs back?""Definitely, we should head down there right away and-""There's a problem..." She says, tapping her fingers together."Of course there is." You grumble.[1/2]
>>41127569"My guess is that she knew that you'd try to win the clubs back, judging by how you've been courting them all week. So, by an 'amazing coincidence' most of those club members aren't here today." Hiroko explains. Saito rubs a hand over his forehead as you stand there, livid."So we can't even appeal to them!?" You ask, horrified."Not unless you wanna go running over town to track them down." Shizuko shouts over to you."She's right," Hiroko nods, "but the bright side is that she didn't get all that many people on-board. Some of them pulled out when she wanted them to not attend.""So the points-?" You ask, hopefully. Hiroko shakes her head."It's not enough.""Agh..." You groan, taking a step back, "I need to think. So some of them are still here?" You ask."Some," Hiroko says, looking through her binoculars again. "Mai's in the stadium, putting on some kind of show for the last few clubs competing. Probably a final attempt to grab more votes. So either we can junt down the remaining people (and hope they'll be enough), or you can try and trounce her at her own game.""Heh, I doubt that." Saito says, peering out over the stadium, "Makoto's not exactly idol material. Unless they really like songs from sentai." He chuckles, and gets a giggle out of Hiroko as well. You're only laughing because you think you're sooo good at that idol course your mother made, you think, grinding your teeth at him. Surprisingly, Shizuko shares your anger right now."I like sentai songs..." She mumbles to herself.> Hunt down those club members.> Hijack Mai's show.> Compete with the cleaning committee.> Last choice of the session.
>>41127585> Compete with the cleaning committee.
>>41127585> Hijack Mai's show.

>>41127585>Hijack Mai's show.
>>41127797"Seems like we don't have a lot of options open to us. She's got us beat on every front." Hiroko sighs, letting her arm hang limply as the rest of you contemplate what to do."Not every front." You say, clenching your fist. The rest of your friends look towards you as you thrust your chest out. "There's one avenue Mai could never have foreseen - mostly because it only occurred to Yui and I a few moments ago." You explain."Do tell." Hiroko says, crossing her arms. You explain that most clubs have already competed, but the Cleaning Committee - not exactly a competitive club - has not."You really think cleaning will get you the points you need?" Shizuko asks, hopping down from the windowsil."I'm not sure, it is a gamble. But if it works, Mai can't possibly have sabotaged it for us. We'll be on equal ground." You say, assured of your choice. "Only problem is that we'll need more members. I doubt Ren, Kyo, and myself can go alone.""Then I will help!" Hiroko says, a hand at her breast and at the ready. Shizuko and Saito are less enthusiastic about it - at least until Shizuko realizes Saito would also be doing it."Hehe, could be fun." She smirks."Wh- Wait, you're into that as well?" Saito asks, afraid of her suddenly. Shizuko shrugs."I'm into a lot of things, but more than anything if it embarrasses a confident guy.""Ngh, you..." He grumbles, shaking a fist. You hug the two of them around their necks."Then I dub thee official maids of Osataka High!" You say, not sure exactly to the process of getting them in (Yui probably knows) but ready in spirit. "By the end of the day, we'll have thwarted Mai's plans and made her pay for all she's done to us and those we hold dear. Literally." You say, casting a hand past the window to point at the stadium. This could be good, or a complete mess, but either way you're going to do your best in the competition ahead."And if things fail," You add "Saito can hijack Mai's idol show.""PFFT"END OF SESSION
>>41127938Thanks for the thread, Qubes! I'll see you next time.
>>41127938> Status: http://pastebin.com/Mx2m0J9V> Twitter: https://twitter.com/questqyubey> Ask: http://ask.fm/QyubeyMostly setup this session, apart from some Naoki teasing and Saito being a liar. A dirty, dirty liar. We should jump right into the competition next session (hopefully on Sat) and might even finish it then, then on the home stretch to this arc's ending.I didn't get any responses on this during the OP, so I'll ask again: > Would we prefer going back to a flat d20 or d100 roll for actions, or do we prefer the dice pool? It's been pointed out that with broader dice pools, the chances of getting more successes actually doesn't scale particularly well (considering results of 1 are negative) so I'm considering going back to the old method of just a roll plus modifier. Might be a bit easier to compile and read also.Otherwise, thank everyone for attending, even on not our regular day.
>>41128269You still have Umeki down as having the focus.
>>41128269>"It felt good, but I can't do it again. Not ever... N-Not in public.">"Dammit, my clothes are gone! Some perv stole them!"Oh. OH. I thought he was crossdressing in a maid's outfit. This is so much more delicious~If it's what I think it is.
>>41128269I have absolutely no idea what Saito could be hiding and that has mesmerized me.Also I don't really know much about how different sets of dice play out, it's all random chance to me. The only thing i know is that 3d6 averages out more than a flat d20 roll.
>>41128372>>41128269Well, if you want to keep with the dice pool but the 1's are canceling it out too much, why not just have it be a number of successes compared against a target number?
>>41128269I have no preferences over the dice system, as long as it's not the current one.
