You decide not to eavesdrop on your sempai and her ex. Sure, you're no stranger to indulging that nasty little green-eyed monster in the back of your mind when the American Callidus is concerned, but after everything that's happened so far... Well, all you want to do really is finish things up over here so you can just crawl back to your room, with your sempai in tow, cocoon yourself and her inside a comforter and just sleep.Sleep for as long as you possibly can. Sleep forever. Sleep until this entire thing blows over, so you won't have to deal with anything else. Sleep for long enough that when you finally wake up - with her in your arms - you can actually have a normal relationship for once. One that doesn't involve multidimensional eldritch exes and hypercompetent blonde psychopaths.But it doesn't work that way. It won't work that way. You still have to get back, and you're not looking forward to having to deal with...well, the inevitable shitstorm you'll be landing smack dab in the middle in when you do finally return ot the real world. You're pretty sure you just broke every single rule in the Ninth's rulebook trying to rescue your sempai - and you'll be lucky enough to spend your entire life inside a Silent Room after what you did. ...It's not like you care all that much, anyway, whatever they decide to you.You were trying to save her. There was no other way. If Kyuubey still decides to screw you over because of that, well...it's on him. You had a good run, and you'll say goodbye to your sempai with a smile....Well, okay, no, you'd probably break down there and then. You're not that strong.But still. Your sempai's safe, and she will be until the next time Fate decides to fling her into another woodchipper.You just hope that somebody else would care enough about her to get her out again when you're not there to do it.
>>42867562You look back at your sempai and her ex. From their body language it seems the conversation has taken a tense turn, with your sempai gesticulating and shaking her head a lot more while Wendy's deliberately looking at anything else other than your sempai. You frown here, and wonder if you should get up over there and try to intercede - but a break in the tension, with Wendy finally letting out a sigh before slowly nodding, resulting in the younger version of Chiaki to punch her fist playfully in the air - convinces you otherwise. "Midorin! Midorin, she said yes!" Your sempai shouts excitedly as she runs back towards you, all smiles, maximum energy, a sight you thought you'd only see in your wildest imaginings. "It took a bit of arguing, but she finally said yes!"What? Yes to what? You say as you stand up from the bench, smiling at her and then at Wendy following close behind."To a threesome!"Oh! That's good! You were getting worried there for a second, and--WHAT?"...She's fucking with you." Wendy replies after a few seconds of forcing your sempai to shut up via a rather cruel-looking headlock and a gloved fist being ground into her scalp. Your sempai's protests ending up muffled against the side of her ample chest. "Just talked my head off about us trying to get along a bit more, because apparently at one point in the future we try to kill each other for real."Really? You blink at her, then at your struggling, squirming sempai. "Mnnghf!" Your sempai shouts, or at least tries to, one hand coming up to frantically pat Wendy's arm in the universally-accepted sign of 'I give'."Yeah. Really." Wendy intones, ignoring your sempai's submission. "I said yes, but she wanted me to promise. Wouldn't stop talking unless I promised....Huh. Well, that's...good, you suppose. Anything to stop the both of you killing each other at some indeterminate point in the future is good, isn't it?[1/2]
>>42867576"...Yeah." The American says again, before finally letting your sempai go. The uniformed girl gasping for breath as she manages to break away. You have a sneaking suspicion that it's something else more than that, but you'll just have to ask her about it later. ...It won't be the first time your sempai's kept something from you, that's for sure."A-anyway! Let's get out of here before the dildo brigade finds out we're here!" Your sempai pipes up, jerking a thumb towards the skyscraper in the distance. "Midorin, just give me the Desert Eagle and we'll all get back into the real world, quick as a shot! I'll..." A shadow briefly flickers across her features. "...I'll try to remember as much as I can about what we talked about now, but if I don't, just...feel free to smack me around until I do, okay?" She smiles at you apologetically, and you couldn't help but grin at that. Well, maybe not smack around. You'll just try to get her back up to speed as gently and as quickly as you can, so the plan you agreed on has the best chance of working.Your sempai smiles. "Well, that's the best I can hope for, I suppose." She holds out her hand to you. "Anyway, the Desert Eagle, if you please, Midorin?"Oh, right. Sure. You take the gun out of your inventory, making sure to grab it by its holster. The weight of the oversized firearm making you grunt at the effort.Just as you make to hand it over, however--+ SHE'S HERE SHE'S HERE SHE'S HERE +The panicked psychic cry stabs into your mind like a rusty knife, hot and painful - just as you see a seemingly-insignificant split-second flash of golden light at the corner of your eye.+ SHE'S HERE SHE'S HERE SHE'S NOT SUPPOSED TO EVEN KNOW YOU'RE IN HERE +[2/3]
>>42867588The world slows down to a crawl, with your sempai still smiling, still waiting for you to hand over the Desert Eagle. Seemingly completely oblivious of what was about to happen.Your heart pounding hard against your chest - your blood roaring in your ears - you realize you only have mere moments to react.What do you do?Shout a warning, before diving behind cover.Tackle your sempai to the ground as fast and as hard as you can.

>>42867837She wasn´t in the last thread either. Who knows? Maybe she has finally realized that she´s wasting her life with us and start studiying to win the Nobel Prize?
Is it finally that time?
Have you wished her a happy birthday?
>>42867868IIRC she's kinda NEETish, so the Nobel Prize is out.>>42867890>implying implications

Decu making a thread on Madoka's birthday.I'll bet you did this on purpose.
>>42868210Means Pinky's gonna show up, right?
>>42867623 >>42867624 >>42867630No time to say sorry beforehand, or even to make sure the both of you land without hurting yourselves - you simply force your tired, weary body to move, in order to get your sempai out of mortal danger in the quickest and most direct way possible. At the same time pulse a hurried warning to your fellow Callidus.Your desperate shoulder tackle catches the smaller, younger version of your sempai completely and utterly by surprise, her frame easily swept off the ground by your momentum - and you wrap your arms around her, covering her with your body as the both of you unceremoniously crash into the hard-packed dirt. Nearly the same moment - barely a split-second later after you land- you feel the earth-shaking thud of something huge and heavy smashing into the ground mere feet away from where you landed in a heap, before exploding in the next. Showering the both of you with clods of earth and bits of rock."What--" Your sempai shrieks, struggling to get out from underneath you but you pin her there and continue shielding her with your body as similar impacts begin to pound the earth around you. You squeeze your eyes shut, gritting your teeth to keep yourself from screaming, desperately praying to any god who will listen to make it stop, whoever or whatever it was who was doing the shooting. Raging at how...how FUCKING unfair it is, for this to drop on you now, with you literally away from getting your sempai back home safely.It never ends, does it?Can't the universe just give you and your sempai a chance at a normal life together?...After what seems like an age - one that you spent white-knuckled, tense and shivering as you braced for that crushing, killing impact that would see you dead, a fate you'd have accepted if it meant being able to shield your sempai from such pain - the bombardment stops.[1/2]
>>42868232It takes you another age to regain what little composure you have left and open your eyes. Immediately closing them again, having opened them to a stinging, tear-inducing dust cloud. You open them again a few moments later, still holding on to your sempai, looking around the now crater-infested landscape. To check on Wendy, as well as to try and figure out who - or what - did this.The answer to your first question is...a limp, unconscious silhouette in the far corner. The second is answered for you, with another silhouette striding from the dust cloud.A confident silhouette, tall and proud, holding an elegantly-barreled rifle in each hand.And one of them - despite being completely identical to the other - is pure, blinding gold.And when she finally comes into full view - close enough for you to see her face - you feel your blood in your veins freeze as you realize what you are truly looking at.Death. This is how you die.This is how everything you fought tooth and nail for slips out of your hands, like so much sand."Midori-san." Tomoe Mami's voice is as warm and as kind as you've ever heard it - but underneath, you also hear the edge of steel, a forced calm that is as heartbreaking to hear as it is terrifying to behold.The sound of a hero - a true hero - girding herself to do something she doesn't want to do, but has to for the greater good."I'm sorry."No preamble. No megalomanic speech. No rambling, manic gloating.Just an apology, before one of the rifles - the golden one - is leveled at you."Please move aside and let me kill Chiaki, Midori-san."...How do you react?Why?No. You'll have to kill me first.Sempai trusted you.
>>42868259Why so rude Mami?>[x]No. You'll have to kill me first.
>>42868259>Sempai trusted you.
>>42867748>>42867771Ok, guys, I concede. You were right, is Mami
>>42868259[X] Sempai trusted you
>>42868259>[X]Why?>[X]Sempai trusted you.>[X]No. You'll have to kill me first.Int hat order.

>>42868259>No. You'll have to kill me first.
>>42868259>[X]Sempai trusted you>[X]No. You'll have to kill me first.I'm late but at lest go here in time for a voteso from 0 to 10 how bad are things for us?
>>42868259>Why?>Sempai trusted you.Mami, I realize how this looks, but you are making a terrible mistake here. Let me explain, before you do simething that will doom us all>then explain all the shit with Pinky and TTO. She has to understand that Chiaki is a savior, not the monster she thinks it isAlso, I want to mention that Risa was right
>>42868259>Why?>No. You'll have to kill me first.Try to buy the most time we can
>>42868259[X]Sempai trusted you.On the bright side, we wont even have to deal with the dilemma of possibly being away from senpai for the planOn the bad side, this
>>42868259[X]Sempai trusted you. And she still does. She doesn't want to hurt you, or me, or any of her friends. Why can't you allow her to live?
>>42868259>[x]Why?>[x]Sempai trusted you.>[x]No. You'll have to kill me first.sounds just right.
>>42868330Fucking bad, like "whoa shit!"
>>42868259>Why?What has she done - DONE, not will do - that requires this?>Sempai trusted you.You think yourself a hero? How long have you been leading her on? Leading everyone on? A hero would never decieve her friends, even if working for their benefit.A hero would never murder an innocent, no matter who they're protecting.>No. You'll have to kill me first.
>>42868259>Why?>"If you think you're doing something wrong for the right reasons, aren't you more likely to be wrong than right?"We need her to consider that she's doing the wrong thing, that maybe her reasoning is wrong.
>>42868259>>[x] Sempai trusted you. She never wanted any of this. She just wanted to do what was right. But people kept hiding things away from her and then this happened. She's not a bad person Mami. You know this. It hasn't changed. She's still Chiaki. No one else. Nothing else.
>>42868259>[X]Sempai trusted you>[X]No. You'll have to kill me first.
>>42868259>[x]Why?If you cared about her like you claimed, you'd help her without killing her.
>>42868259>Why?>Sempai trusted you.
>>42868259>Appeal to her morality.
>>42868356Anon, Mami knows she is going to kill Chiaki in cold blood, but she believes that this will also save the world. She is not going to stop because "killing a defenseless innocent is bad"
>>42868259[X] No. You'll have to kill me first.
>>42868259>[x]Why?>[x]Sempai trusted you.Make her waste some time. Don't tell her she has to kill you, she would actually do it.
>>42868259[x]Sempai trusted you.[x]''A traitor like you cant save the world. You will just ruin it. Again.''Dont know about the rest of you, but I am getting tired and sick of the shit that gets dumped on us.
Seconding this >>42868301
>>42868400Chiaki isn't the innocent I was referring to.
>>42868259>Traitors are evil.
Guys, Mami is perfectly capable and willing to kill Midori. Telling Mami that she'll have to kill Midori first won't make her hesitate in the slightest.
>>42868259>[X]Sempai trusted you.
Y'know, in a way, this is perfect. I doubt anyone can monitor what's happening here... so if Mami were to die here of all places, there's no way to fully pin it on Chiaki, because there's Homu-wars everywhere anyway.Though perhaps we should ask her if she wants to also kill all the others out there too? Cuz, there's plenty of Homu to go around right now, Midori just wants hers to stay alive, Mami can get as many of the others as she wants.
Should we try summoning Tiny Pete? I forgot how long he needs to turn up.
>>42868259Vary nice comic by the way
>>42868259so anyone else going to comment on the golden rifle.
>>42868497Does it need to be said?
>>42868259[x]Other[x]''Right now you think you have a general idea of what is going on and what is going to happen. But thats wrong. You dont have the faintest idea. None. You are just another chess-piece thrown onto the board. Just like Miss Kharn. Just like Miss Malal.''
>>42868497You mean the one we already knew existed?
>>42868259This concludes our second voting period of today.Thank you for participating!
>>42868441Are you an idiot?This is Mami, one of the most effective assassins and killers ever Contracted. Before she moved to Management, she killed people for a living, and was the best at it.Mami won't hesitate to kill people, especially when she believes she's doing it for the greater good.
>>42868541>Mami won't hesitate to kill people, especially when she believes she's doing it for the greater good.Fucking paladins.
Well, this is an interesting time to come into the thread
>>42868527Right, so, Midorin's probably dead.No more danger from the green hair.
Oh man, are we finally going to see Midori die?I hope to god we do.
>>42868527hey hat-sanjust because I’m curious did you vote this period?
Ok, so... I can get how Mami might go into the Vault, and the timing could be explained by saying that she would have gone regardless of whether we did our op or not... but how in the actual fuck did she locate Chiaki, in her secluded location, without having to deal with all the other Homus first?She might be good, but this is kind of stretching it a bit me thinks.
>>42868623Shut up Crunch, you have a wife for that.
>>42868620>Right, so, Midorin's probably dead.You know that if this happens Chiaki will end this world, right?
>>42868645Inb4 she's had a ribbon around us or Wendy this whole time, Rebellion-style
>>42868645You're forgetting the Golden Weapon that Mami has, and the one that Midori was carrying, and that Mami could have tracked Midori because of the Golden DEagle.
>>42868683Or Enishi has simply double-crossed us.Never thought of that, eh, buster?
>>42868642>finish MGNQevery time
>>42868645THIS MUST BE THE WORK OF AN ENEMY GOLDEN WEAPON.
>>42868623Do you hate competence that much, and want to go back to being called a worthless sack of shit that badly?
>>42868722Probably referring to how Chiaki is likely to return to being a fuck-up without someone to keep her on a less crooked path.
>>42868751I don't exactly see Midori doing that. Wendy would quite clearly act the exact opposite role, but Midori is just a wad of fat that bounces around everywhere Chiaki goes.
>>42868668Nope, I still find my suspension of disbelief being stretched. I suppose it could be possible, but, wasn't Mami in a meeting with someone from the First or something when we started all this? Plus... I doubt maintaining those ribbons over large distances comes with no magic cost... considering the time involved, and the distances involves, which are much more than what happened in Rebellion, Mami should be either running on empty, or had to have used one or more GS already and I doubt she has access to an unlimited amount.No matter how you look at it, this is a bit farfetched, and I doubt Pinky would send someone as tough as Mami against Chiaki this soon.
>>42868781inb4 the first knows about Chaika
>>42868722Most of the people that have been calling for Midori to die also said they want to go back to being Murderface.The perennial fuckup who can't get a job done without her hax Time Stop power.Who kept getting partners exiled or killed due to her own incompetence. The shit who everyone was just waiting to have Retired so they wouldn't have to deal with her anymore.
>>42868781She is here because everything has to be going wrong forever.
>>42868781>wasn't Mami in a meeting with someone from the First or something when we started all thisThat's what we were told, yes> I doubt maintaining those ribbons over large distances comes with no magic costYou say that like Mami's entire powerset doesn't guzzle magical energy like a whore. And considering her influence in the 9th, I don't doubt she has enough pull for some grief seeds.Especially if the plan was to "Let's see how the two girls who want Chiaki's dick try to resolve this situation, because assuming they'll sit on their asses is irresponsible
>>42868797>It Must Be The Work of An Enemy Golden WeaponI've seen this image multiple times and that one still gets me.
>>42868776Midori was pretty damn effective until players go full retard, or keep her from doing active field duty and have her work as an instructor.
>>42868801>>42868813All of these plot tweests are starting to look too much like ass-pull. I mean, I get it that the pacing is bad, and the time between sessions makes it worse... but taking the time to read the threads back to back, and looking more closely at the passage of time, it's just been one crazy thing after another for a while now.So yeah, there's such a thing as too much bullshit, and I think the line is being crossed, if Decu isn't playing jump-rope with it already...
>>42868815thanks for the answerI wanted to confirm because I didn’t see your name there
>>42868892>I think the line is being crossed,I want to disagree with this.
>>42868900But his name is there.>>42868480You're just not paying attention.
>>42868892>>42868933>Captcha: pancakesIT HUNGERS.
>>42868942true anon it must be because i didn't sleep very well
>>42868892Did you ever read a Manga that got cancelled halfway? The same thing is happening here.
>>42868981Seriously this is some anime original ending level bullshit.
>>42868981Even if that's not the case, this arc is gonna be make or break for at least me. It's either gonna seriously reinforce my interest in MGNQ, or it's gonna make me drop it.Though considering that anons decisions will be influencing the final result, I'm not feeling all that optimistic...
This is the part where we start praying, as it is Madoka's birthday, for Pinky to swoop down and keep her charade of madness as she chooses Chiaki over the Mumi.Wait isn't Midorin her vessel or something?
>>42869029Not Midori is the 15th.
>The Midori arc is too slow, nothing is happening!>There's just one crazy thing after another, too many tweests!Anon is a great source of amusement as usual.
>>42869053It was too slow for the first few threads, and then it got tweesty.
>>42869053Almost as if its several people.
>>42869053Wildly different people, wildly different opinions, complete bullshit everywhere, every time!80% of the time anons are more amusing than the actual quest.
>>42869109How is it a twist?We knew that it was coming, we tried to plan for how to prevent it, and not thinking that the two people most likely to break the rules and teamkill would be under observation of some kind is just stupid.Also, there's the chance that QB would have installed an alert logger for the Vault to tell him every time it's accessed, and Mami might have been told of the danger that Chiaki poses while on the Moon, and this was a predictable situation.
>>42869070>first fewEverything up to actually getting inside the Silent Room was too slow.Everything since then's been Benny fucking Hill levels of fast-forwarded insanity.
>>42869093I think the word you were trying to use was "sad", not "amusing".
>>42869181Yeah, we literally spent last thread planning to prevent Mami from betraying us.We just never thought it would happen so soon
>>42869181>How is it a twist?Timing and location.
>>42869221More like Decu really trying to hurry it up along.
>>42869221>TimingWhenever you base your plans off of shit that's happened in alternate timelines this gets iffy
>>42869200Nope, definitely meant amusing. I derive great joy from reading how people make complete assess of themselves over the Internet while behind the shield of complete anonymity.
>>42869247You must be new or something. It's amusing only for the several few hundred times before it gets stale and boring.
>>42869190You'd think it'd be harder to jump unnoticed into a crazy witch barrier and evade notice from a lot of crazy Homus, a few of which have probably been betrayed by a Mumi sometime in the past. Though to be fair, they are tunnel-visioning really hard on the fortified death-trap decoy.
>>42869242>On the moon.>Suddenly not only on earth but in the silent room and somehow outsmarted every other homu and found our specific location instantly.
>>42869313I suppose you can go to wherever you want with teleport
>>42869313There's a teleporter to and from the moon, and she may have been (gasp) lying about being thereBeing in the silent room could easily make sense if we were played like fiddles and had tabs kept on usFinding us is a bit dicier, it could be ribbons but yeah
>>42869327>Knowing the specific spot in the anti-teleport room to go.
>>42869313The First has teleportation facilities, and the Homu's are all concentrated at the Tower.As long as she jumped into the Barrier elsewhere, and used her Golden Musket to track the Golden DEagle, she wouldn't have encountered the Homura's, and they wouldn't have seen her either.
>>42869313>Assuming that she was actually on the moon
>>42869313Maybe she bugged Wendy? She was buddying it up pretty hard with her, after all. You could do almost anything to the one you've went balls deep inside of without them noticing.
>>42869356>used her Golden Musket to track the Golden DEagleIf one weapon can track the other there is no excuse for us collecting only one in the past 200 threads.
>>42869364>Implying that isn't a decoy Mami and the real one has healing bullets.
>>42869352A silent room is an anti-magic room, not an anti-technology teleport room
>>42869396Now this is getting too silly.
>>42869396>Pontificating that Mami was ever actually alive and this isn't the Golden Rifle's spirit puppeting her body
>>42869385That's because Chiaki is merely a Golden Weapon User 1. Mami is a Golden Weapon User 2. Or what is called an ascended Golden Weapon User, if you will.
>>42869385>there is no excuseWell maybe we could have collected more if we did as QB ordered us to and went out to collect them, instead of shadowrunning about what he and Malal were hiding from us.Which, it turned out, was that they were memory-wiping Girl A until she'd just finally go out and start collecting the Golden Weapons.
>>42869439You mean, someone who has been in possesion of a GW for long and has better control over it?
>>42869385>us collecting only one in the past 200 threads.Yeah back when I started reading this I figured we would have most of the golden weapons by the time I caught up with the threads. But then again I didn't think you guys would waifu the tacticool gang rapist, so what the fuck do I know.
On a different topic, you think Decu is going to do an all-night thread?
>>42869484if we ever go to the First's moon base, do you think decu will do a cameo.
>>42869484With how late he started I dunno why he wouldn't. He'd have to stop right about now otherwise.
>>42869501Ah! Well though! Probably, but I doubt we will go there
>>42869447>Which, it turned out, was that they were memory-wiping Girl A until she'd just finally go out and start collecting the Golden Weapons.That is a pretty shitty plan.
>>42869503>Implying he hasn't stoped
>>42869479>But then again I didn't think you guys would waifu the tacticool gang rapist, so what the fuck do I know.In our defense - we didn't even know Wendy exists back them, so it was betwewn the idol truck, greengreen and minimaid.
>>42869479Things kinda got clogged during the Prophet arc. New character intros, and stuff along with a golden weapon. And now there's all of this business, which is a lot of plot stuff involved with not finding a golden weapon and STILL dealing with the ramifications of the Prophet arc.
>>42869529We should have just taken TTO's deal.
>>42869590Chiaki should have invested more points in WIS and CHA so she could have talked the TTO into merging with her.
>>42869460Do you see this thing I'm holding in my hand? This metal, shiny object with a large, concave oval head?This is a spoon. I will use this to feed you.He's making a reference to a meme about Dragonball Z
We will probably have to fight Mami next vote. Do we have any options other than Tiny Pete and hoping the dolls are around?
>>42869513It was either that or have another goddamn failure on their hands, like every single previous timeline and Girl A/Murderface before she'd get another memory wipe.From how many partners we got killed, it's pretty obvious that without Timestop, Murderface was pretty shit as a Magical Girl, and barely worth keeping around.Would you let any one of those previous fuckups use a Golden Weapon, let alone take the only ones you have out to fight against people that aren't complete pushovers?Fuck, even as the mildly competent Chiaki Matsuda personality and wielding the best Golden Weapon most suited for our use, we still needed backup from Kyouko and Tiny Pete to take down Kilgore.Kilgore! A fucking mundane, using a Golden Weapon he had no synchronicity with!And Murderface is supposed to fight against actual Magical Girls that have experience and competence with their Golden Weapons, who can cancel out Timestop?All things considered, I think that's the best plan that Malal and QB could have implemented, given what they were working with.
>>42869620Cry? this Mumi is completely and utterly bullshit, has Burgerbutt in her finger and Chiak-Hmm, maybe the other fragments may appear?
>>42869620Deploy a Midori Slap like we did against Kharn in Siberia, is about it. Or tell the Three Stooges that right now is a good time for them to show Mami how her actions in previous timelines always ended up making things worse.
>>42869664>Murderface, Braids and Dildoes going fucking ham on Mami
>>42869607Ahhh. Thanks anon
>>42869698>Four Chiakis hammin' down on Mami's ham
>>42869664>has Burgerbutt in her fingerMore like her finger in Burgerbutt
>>42869694Wouldn't work. Kharn may already have had doubts about what she was doing, and may have been seeking an easy way out instead of being forced to face up to her fuck-ups. Mami seems to be the type who is unshakeable once she's convinced that what she's doing is right.
>>42869620Tell her that her death would cause tremendous damage for certain, while us destroying the world or whatever is only a possibility.
Does Burgerbutt have Assburger's?
>>42869731>Mami>UnshakeableLike MGNQ Mami I can agree but still
>>42869698>>42869716>Mami's Mammies Homu'd by Homillion Homus
>>42869664since Mami apparently appeared via teleportation deepstrike, causing physical damage to the surrounding area, it could be safe to assume that some Homu's in the distance saw a dust cloud. then they say, what the fuck was that? do we have people over there? who did that?really I would like nothing better than for midori and mami to be yelling at each other, weeping, only for it to be interrupted by 20 Homus hammering Midori from a sudden attack helicopter. and one of them would be loudly yelling the Ride of Valkyries theme. they would just play it over the sound system but that got damaged on the last attempted roof assault.the other homus don't really like that one very much.
>>42869796That's... Actually, I want this to happens
>>42869731We need to find a way to shake her foundations, though. Was it mentioned if Midori's ability to do a telepathic memory dump was something that Callidus could be trained to do, or something that she found she could do after her Soul Gem got remade and linked to Chiaki's?Because, we've seen that memory dump given to Kyouko and to Yuu, meaning that potentially we could do it to Mami.
>>42869599I like you.
>>42869796So we try talking to Mami to give the Homus enough time?
>>428698176! 6 6! The number of the desperate reaching!
>>42869632No it was have a failure on their hands BECAUSE of that plan.
>>42869859That might work if we assume that Mami is not a crazy person.Logic doesn't work so well with crazy people, or with people who have enough of an ego that enables them to power through the most well-constructed arguments.
>>42869921The memorydump might still break her concentration. I have no idea how to exploit that opening though.
>>42868282 >>42868298 >>42868301 >>42868366It's funny. You should be scared right now. You should be rendered speechless and motionless at the mere sight of Tomoe Mami leveling a weapon at you - a Golden Weapon, no less - with clear murder in her eyes and absolutely no hesitation in her heart. You should even be feeling that heavy, choking pressure that you've felt around Kharn, as well as your sempai - the sensation of feeling someone's pure, focused killing intent wash over you.Instead, you feel nothing. Nothing but a cold, calm fury that you've never felt before. Not clouding your mind and perception like the usual stripe of anger does - but clearing it, focusing it, making you see just how ridiculous this situation is. How absolutely, hilariously unfair this situation has become."Midori-san." Mami says again, quieter this time, but no less firm. No less adamant. "Please. Move aside."You look up at her, returning her steely glare - before tightening your grip on Chiaki. Pulling your younger, still-shellshocked sempai closer to you, shielding her with your body."...Why?" You ask the blonde Vindicare instead. Letting that one word - laced with your own accusatory condemnation - hang in the air between the both of you, in lieu of all the questions you desperately want to scream at her. In lieu of all the insults and the venom and the hate that you want to spit at her, not only for her bare-faced treachery but her hypocrisy, the latter exemplified by the godforsaken golden weapon she's aiming at you right now. "WHY?"Silence, before she lowers the rifle, its gaping mouth no longer aimed to spit death at you but still drawing your gaze to it, like a cobra about to strike but slithering away momentarily. You tear your eyes away from it to look back up at Mami, and you manage to see the hint of regret there as she finally replies."...Because I must."[1/2]
>>42869888Each time the memory wipes happened, the Murderface at the time was basically useless or would have gone rogue with a Golden Weapon. Trying to keep those previous Murderfaces going would have just ended in failure, or a full-blown Witch Out. Those memory wipes were necessary because Murderface was absolutely shit.
>>42870000Then, she blurs, out of focus, and it's here that you feel something smash into your side, with enough force to send you flying - your suddenly-nerveless arms falling slack at the moment of impact, made to relinquish your grip on your sempai. The world tumbles around you in a sickening, bruising spin, before something cracks against the back of your head, turning the colors red and wet and hot, just like the pain blossoming inside your skull.No--sempai--You close your eyes when you finally land, hard enough that you hear the crucnh of your own impact before your weary, tired body actually registers the pain. And when it does, you hear yourself scream. Screaming - and cursing. Just like your sempai would.As you open your eyes - a bloody film briefly covering your vision, blinked away in the migraine-bright light being reflected from the Golden Weapon in the blonde traitor's grasp - it's here that you feel something ensnaring you. Something long and pliant wrapping around your limbs, around your body, cinching tight and constricting. You try to struggle against it, to extract yourself from its embrace before it could completely wrap around you - but you're too slow, too stunned to do so. Only a few heartbeats and you're rendered completely immobile, and as you look down you realize just what had done it.Ribbon. Yellow ribbon. The kind that Mami was now pulling free from Wendy's unconscious form, from somewhere underneath her scarf. Beside you - also immobilized in the same fashion, albeit in an almost halfhearted way, with her wrists tied behind her back - is your sempai. Still stunned to the point of helplessness, unable to move, unable to move or react with the same bloody-minded viciousness like your actual sempai would be doing right about now.[2/3]
>>42870028"Malal wasn't the only one who dreamed of things, you know." You hear Mami murmur, less to you and more to herself. "I did, too. Of things so horrible I thought I was...I was going crazy at first." She picks up something from the ground - the holstered Desert Eagle - before shaking her head and placing it in her inventory. "And I knew I had to do something. No matter what I felt about it, or what others may feel about me - I had to do something about it, something that only I could do. Something that I was uniquely placed and prepped to, even before this entire mess started."She stands up, smiling wistfully at the torn yellow ribbon in her hand before letting it drift away in the wind."Sempai...sempai trusted you." You spit at her, struggling against your bonds again, trying to worry your arms free, or at least get them together. "She never wanted any of this. She just...nngh...she just wanted to do what was right. But people kept hiding things away from her and then THIS happened." There's a tiny bit of give, just enough for you to think you could do it if you keep her distracted enough. "She's....sempai's not a bad person, Mami. You know this. It hasn't changed. She's still Chiaki. No one else - nothing else.""I know." Comes the whispered reply. "I know, Midori."There's a click as she stands in front of your stunned sempai, before leveling the golden rifle at her once more. "It's why I have to do it now. Before she changes."No. No, no, no, no...! It can't end like this! It can't...! NO!What do you do?Pulse Wendy as loudly and as harshly as you can to wake her up.Summon Tiny Pete.Lure the other Homuras to attacking Mami.

>>42870056[X]Summon Tiny Pete.I will enjoy your death when it comes, Mumi.
Why are you guys always going for the option that will inevitably cause us just as many, if not worse, problems down the line, instead of actually trying to fix things now.
GUYS WE CAN'T EVEN SUMMON TINY PETEWE"RE RESTRAINED
>>42870246Wich of the options given wouldn't do that? I mean, I can't see where pulsig Wendy can go wrong, but I don't see it being helpful at all, her being inconcious and all.
>>42870056Use your Callidus powers to blind and deafen Mami.
>>42870246Honestly I feel that Tiny Pete can't take Mami, but will provide a distraction to eventually reach a much better solution.
>>42870240>>42870272We could memory dump everything Midori learned in Siberia with Malal and Godoka, as well as what Pinky revealed to us so far. That Chiaki will be fighting Faust, that the Blessed Lady is already gone, and that this transformation evidently will help fight Faust later on.You know, actual information that Mami likely doesn't have.
>>42870246Because deep down, we are all masochists.
Ideally, if we can get Tiny Pete to stuff Mami inside of himself and teleport out, that solves the problem for now. Once we have Chiaki back, either Mami flips out and goes rogue (in which case that significantly reduces the chance of a multi-officio beatdown on Chiaki) or realises that her visions are just as fallible as Malal's.
>>42870294>provide distraction to reach a better solution>causing a huge fight that will attract the attention of the Homura army>fighting Mami and ending up with her either dead or still trying to kill Chiaki How the fuck is it going to get us in a better situation?
>>42870056>[x]Summon Tiny Pete.MULTIPLE, SIMULTANEOUS, AND DEVASTATING DEFENSIVE DEEP STRIKES
>>42870264Being desperate and hope for miracles speaks louder than thinking shit through, I'm afraid.
>>42870309But that isn't an option
>>42870336>either Mami flips out and goes rogue (in which case that significantly reduces the chance of a multi-officio beatdown on Chiaki) No, it really wouldn't since all she has to do is tell the First that Homusatan has appeared and then every single Officio on the planet and the Moon will come crashing down on us.>or realises that her visions are just as fallible as Malal's.She already fucking said that she intends to kill Chiaki before she can turn into the TTO. Chiaki not turning into the TTO right now gives Mami no assurances that she won't turn into TTO later.
>>42870340>Pulse Wendy/Mami>Doesn't work>Get shot
>>42870364Yes, it is an option.It's a fucking write-in, which are always viable, except that idiots always vote first without thinking and then leave, never thinking that a better idea might come up after they vote.
>>42870246Because no matter what we chose, decu will twist it so that everything is ruined forever.
>>42870403>It's a fucking write-in, which are always viable, except that idiots always vote first without thinking and then leave, never thinking that a better idea might come up after they vote.>They always work, except for how they don't everytime.
>>42870403I know.It's not an option because nobody will vote for it.
>>42870309I'll second this, if we have the time to do it before getting turned into mincemeat.
>>42870404No, it's usually idiots choosing without thinking, or thinking that their stupid write-in of bravado won't result in getting insta-killed.
>>42870449>Anonymous in charge of posting the right image

>>42870449You could have voted for a similar thing or seconded >>42870145or >>42870309But since you didn't, that would make you part of the problem.
>>42870529Wouldn't have won the vote anyway.
>>42870056>>42870309I mean, this is the way to go.
>>42870056>Summon Tiny Pete>Use Illusions to make Mami think that things are going 'Just As Planned'.
>>42870309Fuck, why not this.
>>42870529Your whole point is based on Mami being reasonable. Chances are the GW has completely fried her mind already. Ahriman told us that there was a golden weapon that makes you believe you are on a crusade of justice. She told us this was the GoldenDE, ever thought it might the musket?
>>42870607Shit, making ourselves look like homu just before mami showed up would have been clever
Reminder that Mami's death will make half the meguca world witch out from sadness.
>>42870612Why not? Because voters are lazy and won't change their votes even when a better choice comes along.
>>42870623Yet, nobody thought Mami would decide that this would be the perfect time to get her Koolaid-man act up.
>>42870641Reminder that getting shot in the face isn't a very good option either
>>42870692Better than getting shot in the soul gem.
>>42870616Ahriman also lied, saying that the Stooges had lied to us.And even if the Golden Musket is the one that makes the wielder think they're on a grand quest, Midori's memory dumps are forceful punches straight to the mind, making it possible to get through GW induced monomania.
>>42870692Better that Midori gets shot in the face than ChiakiMidori's still operating by normal magical girl rules, and her soul gem's like, on her hand? I forget.Chiaki's operating by weird-ass dream trip rules and her soul gem is currently in pieces
So where the fuck are the Clara dolls? You'd think they would show up in a life or death situation like this.
>>42870719>lied, saying that the Stooges had lied to us>Thinking they didn't.
>>42870725I'll accept that, but everyone else is knocked out at the moment. At the very least, we need Midori to buy as much time as possible
>>42870725Isn't her soul gem in her choker?
>>42870750Read the post, Mami tied up Midori.
>>42870750Maybe they can't enter the barrier or whatever the fuck are we now.
>>42870777And how does that harm the dolls?
>>42870756What did they lie about, then? Or are you just making implications because you didn't bother to actually check your facts?
>>42870796Love is tied up.
So what's the plan now?Or are we just going to blunder from one mistake to another?
>>42871019I think we will take the old and tried option of blundering,
>>42871019Subdue Mami and pry the gun away from her.
is it time for new thread yet?
>>42871019Have TP distract or possibly detain MamiWake Wendy upUntie everyoneStop Mami without killing herGet out of the barrier???Profit
>>42871049>"subdue" Mami and "pry" her "gun" "away" from her
>>42871043Except, Midori had an actual plan, and used her head back in Siberia. In fact, Midori kept making thought-out choices until chucklefucks thought that yelling "Get Fucked" wouldn't lead to a smackdown.
>>42871060We should have 2 or 3 hours after reaching the bumplimit.>>42871107>Hug everyone, bitchslap Kharn>thought-out
>>42871084Stopping Mami and keeping her from attacking Chiaki again will require more than just telling her that Chiaki won't go full TTO; we need to show her information she likely doesn't know about the Blessed Lady, Faust, and Chiaki's transformation.
>>42871146Well, yes, those actions were thought out by thinking about the people involved and how to best take advantage of their emotional weaknesses.
>>42871178I agree, which is why I left "stopping" ambiguous. We could also show her the other Homus trying to kill her.
>>42871178Though letting Mami know about it may let Faust know about it. Didn't Madokami let Midori know that Pinky should NOT know about that, since it would probably muck up Madokami's plans to fix everything involving the golden weapons?
>>42871107Gotta admit, >>42871146 has a point. Hugging the survivalist and almost 100% predator version of shempai and then bitch slapping the person that was once her direct superior that reigned through prowess in battle and bed are not thought-out choices but rather emotionally driven spontaneous actions.
>>42871210No, those actions involved having some goddamn guts and taking risks.Instead of trying to coddle everyone and everything Chiaki cares about like some sort of hive-brained babysitter.
>>42870056>[X]Summon Tiny Pete.When has summoning Tiny Pete ever been a bad thing?
[X]Summon Tiny Pete.We should have hit that button as soon as we heard "She's here!" but you know, exposition.
>>42871369How about when Chiaki and Midori finally fucked? I don't think Tiny Pete would help there.
>>42871398Oh, how naive you arejust imagine the safety you'd feelhaving a FUCKING SPESS MEHREEN standing guard over you and your wife as you boned
>>42871398>threesome with tiny pete will never happenWhy live?
>>42871398>Tiny Pete stands next to the bed, wearing a tiny baseball hat and waving a tiny flag, both have the warmaster emblem on it.
>>42871247We did have things thought out for them, though.I mean, we were told about the attunement of Midori's Soul Gem being able to calm down the Armored Fragment, and that's what we used to make her calm enough that Midori could hug her and have her calm down enough to recognize the other Fragments we had with us as allies rather than enemies.As for Kharn, we did use our knowledge to analyze the situation and tell Kharn the exact things that would make her stop.So, they were more thought out than on-the-spot emotion-driven actions that you make them out to have been.
>>42870056[x] summon tiny peteI feel like this will also help attract the other Homus. one mysterious deep strike can just be a coincidence, but two is definite enemy action.
>>42871398>Misaka decides to surprise Chiaki>deep strikes in on Chiaki deep in Midori
>>42871369>When has summoning Tiny Pete ever been a bad thing?In the Siberia Barrier, every now and then people would scream to summon Tiny Pete, and every one else would tell them how stupid they were to summon him when the Ribbon Homu was still on the loose.And look! By talking down Pinky, the Armored Fragment, and Kharn, instead of summoning Tiny Pete to fight them, we got them all as allies instead of losing them in a fight.
>>42871238What Godoka doesn't want Pinky to know is that she's still there and that the Golden Weapons were actually her idea, not Faust's.We could leave that out of the memory dump, and still keep "Godoka is gone, only Faust is left, the Blessed Lady needs to be killed and Pinky herself thinks that the current Chiaki has a better chance now".
>>42871475In retrospect I forgot those small details because I had to read through them instead of participate and upon remembrance they slip me by.They were pretty risky actions though, and I guess that's where I really want to get
>>42871517Has Misaka received "the talk" yet?
>>42871496>I feel like this will also help attract the other HomusSo you WANT the Homura's who want to kill Chiaki to come here?It's not like they're going to come here with knives and pistols you know, but rocket launchers and heavy machine guns. And at least one of them probably has a Howitzer stashed away somewhere.
Do we have a higher bump limit than we used to?I feel like we should maybe point out that, by trying to kill Chiaki, Mami is creating the possibility for Chiaki to become the evil overlord that she's trying to prevent.
>>42870056>> [x] pulse wendy
>>42871627They might decide Mami is the bigger threat.Maybe. I admit that's VERY questionable.>>42871647I think Hiro bumped it to 500. I love our new overlords.
>>42871607I'd imagine so, with how she has spent time with Souji and pregnant Kharn.
>>42871647>In the news: Local blonde Vindicare played like a damn fiddle
>>42871606>They were pretty risky actions thoughThey were the actions that had the highest chance of success, because the alternatives were to fight it out when we had a big fight looming on the horizon, we couldn't actually kill the Armored Fragment because that would fuck up everything and make recovery impossible, and fighting Kharn would have meant that we would have been in even worse shape to fight Ribbon-Homu.Risky, but at least they were thought out and designed to attack the weaknesses of the opponents we were facing.>>42871669>They might decide Mami is the bigger threat.>Mami, who is trying to kill the one person they've spent so many hundreds of lives trying to killReally, now?
>>42870078 >>42870098 >>42870101 >>42870102You can...you can reach the teleport beacon. It'll take some doing, and you need a bit more time for it to take, but...you can do it. You just need to keep her occupied until you do, something you're not sure you could pull off. Not against someone as determined as her. As completely convinced of what she was doing as her.Still, you have to try. Otherwise--"MAMI-SAN!" You scream at her, just as you see her finger tighten on the trigger. "Right now - right now you think you have everything figured out, don't you? Right now you think you have an idea of what's going on and what's going to happen, right?!"Silence, but the miniscule tensing of her already stiff shoulders tells you you've struck a nerve, and you take that as a cue to press on. Throwing all caution to the wind, just to delay her for a few moments longer."But you're wrong!" Just a bit farther, just a bit more... "You don't even have the faintest fucking idea! None!" That gets her attention, her head turning the slightest bit to look at you. "You're just another chesspiece thrown on the board - just like Miss Kharn! JUST LIKE MISS MALAL!"Click. You let out an involuntary sigh of relief as you finally manage to bring your hands together, your numb fingers finding the screen of the bulky teleport beacon and depressing it. Even without seeing its screen, you know that it's already working its magic - already you can taste the developing ozone-scent of teleportation, even in this unnatural air. Now it's only a few more seconds until--"What did you do?" Mami turns away from your catatonic sempai, glaring daggers at you. Piercing you to the core. "Midori-san, what in the world did you--"Her words are lost as a clap of thunder - immediately followed by an explosion of white, caustic light - erupts mere feet away from you, forcing you to avert your eyes, and for Mami to shield hers. [1/2]
>>42871777Immediately you feel and hear something immeasurably heavy slam into the ground, and you can't help but smile - even through the pain - at the sound of servo joints whirring and snarling into life. At the sound of having bought yourself - and your sempai - just a bit more time.[TELEPORTATION COMPLETE] The giant from within the resultant dust cloud from the violent teleportation intones. The crimson eyeslits of its tusked, elephantine helm burning hellfire as it strides forward, the skulls impaled on its spiked shoulder racks clattering with every step."..." And again, Mami is completely silent at this, meeting the new combatant with nothing short of saintly patience. No curses, no remarks of grudging admiration - just a simple shake of her head, a disappointed glance at you, before levelling the golden rifle at your sempai's huge, hulking robot friend.She pulls the trigger, and the sight that followed - the deafening, horrifying violence of it - is something that you'll never forget for the rest of your life.What spits from the golden rifle's barrel isn't just some sort of extra-powerful round that could blast out people's insides if they so much as get caught in the recoil - but a thick, searing beam of pure, roiling unlight.It's what smashes against Tiny Pete's breastplate, that dented, scarred hull of steel and ceramite that had withstood more than enough firepower to start and end wars. It's what punches through that very same breastplate, then ripping through the other layers of subdermal armor underneath, and then tearing through the machinery within.It's what cores the Terminator right through, boring a hole through the once-invincible iron giant that had served as your sempai's comrade for as long as you knew it.[2/3]
>>42871765If an eldritch abomination pops out and starts tearing the world apart, then maybe it's a good idea to stop killing your rival and team up against the much bigger threat. Obviously I don't know if Mami COUNTS as such but therein lies the idea.
>>42871813We really should have seen that one coming.
>>42871813The collossal hammer that it was about to wield dropping from its fingers, thudding hard on the hard-packed dirt floor - before the rest of its lifeless, smoking corpse joins it a moment later, in another earth-shaking collapse.No...that's...even Tiny Pete...?"...That was unnecessary." Mami murmurs, her voice calm, bereft of emotion. Swiveling the still-smoking barrel of the golden rifle to point at you. "Now look what happened, Midori. Look what you made me do."How do you react?Beg for mercy.Call her a coward and a traitor. Try to get your sempai to snap out of it.Pray.

x[>]THE FLESH OF FALLEN ANGELS
>>42872077What other options do we have. She needs to understand that she is soing to wrong thing, even if that means disclosing information. And besides, Midori had a converation with the Blessed Lady herself (something we can show to Mami). That surely us going to get her attention
>>42871858I'll also second a memory dump, but my faith in our choices actually making a difference in not making anything worse is fading.

>>42872241We knew for the longest time that Mami was not to be trusted and we didn't do a damn thing about it.
>>42872213thanks for running Decultureon a scale from Solid Snake to Venom Snake how mentally unstable is Mami right now?
>>42872228There's an option to try to get out of this RIGHT HERE >>42871911>>42871913>>42871936>>42871966>>42871985>>42872024>>42872067>>42872147And you missed it all?
>>42872266>suddenly, a hundred Tiny Petes teleport in and assfuck Mami to hellYes.
>>42872213Who was inside Tiny Pete?
>>42872261So a non-applicable solution that wouldn't work anyway, instead of doing something that might get us out of this alive.
>>42872304You can't argue that we couldn't have done something to prevent this.
>>42872266>>42872297Personality backups ya twit not physical. And if one pete didnt even post a problem to her what's a hundred going to do?
>>42871858>[x]Call her a coward and a traitor.I like to think that with the thunderous obliteration of Tiny Pete hundreds of Homus miles away from here simultaneously turned their heads toward this point.
Actually, I think summoning tiny pete wasn't a bad idea, mostly because he does have video feedback and I don't know how many people actually know that Mami had a GW.Nonetheless, R.I.P
>>42872336>Tiny Pete>personalitySince when?
>>42872322>>42872304Wow, so you're forgetting the warning that we got and Risa specifically telling us about Mami going to betray us for the exact same reasons that she betrayed her Jaeger, the only person she loved?
>>42872322>meta knowledgeour diary literally said as much like two years ago.
>>42872333Considering Decu would rather be writing fan fiction than a quest? Sure I can.
So, what was the agreement we had about summoning Tiny Pete, the specifics of it
>>42872333We could have asked Ahriman why she was after Mami during Kharn Quest. We could told Kyuubey about Mamis actions during the Kirika mission.Those were the only times we could do anything about Mami.
>>42872213If you don't mind, Decu, how exactly have you been imagining this or any of the last three threads to be the last thread of the arc?
>>42872339>hundreds of Homus miles away from here simultaneously turned their heads toward this point.So you want us to have to deal with Homu's AND Mami at the same time?Because those two forces would join together to kill Chiaki, you know.
>>42872414But Mami may consider killing all the homus.
>>42872414On one hand, they both want to kill Chiaki, on the other hand, they all also were the fragments that got betrayed by Mami. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong
>>42872414More like, explain to Mami that killing the Nameless One solves nothing. If she dies, another homu takes her place.
>>42872414>he thinks he knows what the Homus would do>he thinks the Homus know that Mumi is their ally>He thinks that the Homus who were so narrowminded and focused on an empty building would actually stop to talk to the MumiYour opinion is retarded and so are you.
>>42872461>killing the Nameless One solves nothing>If she dies, another homu takes her place.That's not true, and no.All of the Homu's are trying to kill the Nameless One, and Chiaki is the last remaining one. That's been hammered home by Malal and Godoka multiple times. This is the last chance left.>>42872458>they all also were the fragments that got betrayed by Mami.No, that's wrong. All of those Homura's out there are ones that were from before the Stooges put together a plan to work with Godoka to end Faust. So except for a few outliers, they're all ones that DIDN'T have Mami betray them.
>>42872208In this situation it probably means Pinky taking over. She then kills Mami and tells us to prepare for the showdown. We go solo and collect the Golden Weapons. Final battle is us vs. Pinky in Midoris body.
>>42872493>Homu's see Mami have a gun trained on Chiaki, the Nameless One, the thing they've been trying to killWhy the fuck would the Homu's interfere or stop Mami? Can you explain that, you retarded troglodyte?
Speaking of...Remember that Sleeper Agent talk? Well, we arent the sleeper agent! Just that we all didnt see it coming
I think I'm getting off this ride. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted... Maybe I'll check the archives in three years or so to see how badly it ended, but I'm pretty sure I'm done.
>>42872549There is also the part about the Homus fighting for dominance, and us having to support Chiaki in the fight.
>>42872493Then explain how getting the Homu's attention will help us.What would they do that wouldn't just make this situation worse?
So that's what the ribbon Mami placed around Wendy's neck in that one write-up was for.
>>42872619I remeber the Armored fragment saying "I TRUSTED YOU". In that moment, I thought she refered to Midori, but now I think it was Mami. And no, Mami is mot an sleeping agent, but someone who was planning from the very beginning to betray us if we were to become the Devil.A sleeper agent is someone who "awake" and carry out a mission she/he didn´t knew it has in the beginning.Also, everyone around here has fucking dreams! Malal, this timeline Homu, and now MAMI? And Decu said that Mami is a figure in the BL Panteon, but he hasn´t revealed it yet
>>42872710See you later, anon. Thanks for reading.
>>42872710All right, fly now, coward chicken. Don´t make noise when you close the door
>>42872577How the fuck would they know that she wants to kill Chiaki you fucking mongoloid special classes child. You truly are shaved ape if you think they will stay long enough there to figure out what Mumi is doing there, instead of you know, starting to shoot. Now go and mcfucking kill yourself.
>>42872717>There is also the part about the Homus fighting for dominance, and us having to support Chiaki in the fight.The Homura's don't fight for dominance, so much as the Stooges helped to filter the memories so that Chiaki wouldn't get overwhelmed by the information.And Midori didn't support Chiaki in that.
>>42872753Inb4 it's something like the Deciever>>42872710Leaving right before the resolution to something crazy with no obvious way out? Sounds hard
>>42872796Right, they'd shoot right at Chiaki. The thing we've been trying to prevent. So good job there, you dimwit.
>Tiny Pete is dead
>>42872747>Then explain how getting the Homu's attention will help us.Where the fuck did I say they would help us? Cant you even read, nigga?Cant you follow a simple conversation you mongtard?
>>42872847They would shoot at everything you gaga brainchild. Why are you choking on so many dicks while you write, fucking hell.
>>42872848Misaka might be dead too
>>42872855Then why even bring up that Tiny Pete's destruction would have likely brought the attention of the Homu's, and not couch it in terms of unwanted attention.
>>42872899What is the point you're trying to make? That the Homura's will fire on everything, killing Mami, Midori, Wendy, and Chiaki?Just as likely as them trying to concentrate fire on Chiaki, since the Nameless One is their target, and ignoring Mami until one of them can get some RPG's.Or is it that Mami and the Homura's wouldn't work together because they wouldn't try to talk with each other before trying to kill Chiaki?They wouldn't verbally, but they still have the same objective, so even if they didn't coordinate with each other, they would both be still going after the same thing and not necessarily competing against each other.
>>42872907>Killing Kharn's imouto-in-lawOh, Mumi done just FUCKED UP.
Only good thing I can see about Homus coming here is Mami getting distracted by roughly ten officios worth of homus.
>>42873269>Mami distracted>Ten Officios worth of Homus locked onto Chiaki and ready to buttfuck herAnon, I doubt this is going to end well...
>>42873170Look on the bright side: maybe now we can rope Kharn into taking Mami's skull
>>42873269But they'd start raining down RPG's and whatever weapons they have on our position, and we're still tied up.A distraction is no good if the distraction is throwing high explosives at us and we can't escape.
>>42873315I think Kharn would prefer Mami panties instead
>>42873345Not if she just killed Misaka.Granted, that's wild speculation with little to no evidence.
>>42873382It was a joke, anon. But seriously, I think that even if Mami has killed Misaka, QB would say that it was in an unautorized operation, and that Misaka digged her own grave (anything to keep his secretary alive) and would contain Kharn to not do anything
>>42873382>wild speculation with little to no evidence.Aka the best kind
>>42873382I was wondering if the agreement for Tiny Pete's assistance included it being piloted non-remotelyThen again, it might be remote assistance since nobody except Midorin and Wendy are supposed to be in the Silent Room as the plan goes
By the way, is this true?
>>42873507>nobody is allowed to draw inspiration from anything else EVER>nobody ever comes up with similar concepts EVER>everyone knows about everything that has ever happened EVERwho fucking cares?
>>42873434>the agreement for Tiny Pete's assistance included it being piloted non-remotelyNo.The agreement with the Fourth was for operational and combat data.No location data, no visual data, no audio data.Though since he has an AI core, it's debatable if we can get another one, since the Fourth is the one that built it and as a prototype, they may have to machine one from scratch.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35891463/
>>42873722Also we're not sure where his AI core is located. It would make about as much sense for it to be in his head as in his chest
>>42873741>It would make about as much sense for it to be in his head as in his chestPutting it in the chest does make engineering sense, since it's the most heavily armored part of the Ironform.While the head is harder to hit, it's also much more fragile.
>>42873922Though on the other hand, the chest is where the pilot goes, and if I remember correctly the scale means that their head doesn't enter the helmet
>>42873922True, the head is much more fragile, but assuming that the head is where the sensor suite most likely is, the whole unit is out of action if the head is gone regardless of where the core is.
