"For values of 'turning you into a Magical Girl' equal to 'you having a costume that protects you and operates on principles most people won't understand, and wielding equipment that few on Earth have ever seen, let alone held,' yes, this will turn you into a magical girl!"— Ryouko Asakura
The "Magic" ContinuesPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=%27Magical%27%20Girl%20Quest============It is the Year 2012 After Diaspora. About two thousand years ago, the Two Day War forced Transhumanity to leave Old Terra behind, and spread to the stars - what was once barely more than a solar empire has become a confederacy of a thousand worlds. At its heart is the ReaDS, the Resource Distribution System that has overcome the problems of both scarcity and mortality, though Transhuman Space is not without its problems. Nearly forty-eight hours ago, First Contact was made, and it was less than friendly. Known as the <Hostile Contact/Vonnies> to the AIs, these Von Neumann machines overcame a small outpost world 'Regulus Prime through sheer attrition.In response to the threat, the AIs of the ReaDS have put into place Operation: Mahou Shoujo, a gambit to exploit an apparent bug in the enemy IFF system to by time for the countermeasure 'Project Riposte' to be completed.You are presently being the blue haired daughter of the demigod-like AI. Having done some training with your new weaponry, including the operations of the gravitic field embedded in the flightsuit that feels like you're wearing NOTHING AT ALL, you decided to get to know your new bestest best friend in the whole wide world a bit better. Unfortunately, while you and she were eating that terrible pasta that doesn't even taste like -FREEDOM-, the base's systems alerted you to an intruder. Said intruder turned out to be Rick and his alpha fork, TheTRUTHIsOutThere, the latter having gone through forced GIRLCEPTION, making her mind match the <Human/Pubescent/Female> body she was sleeved in.
Alexa, who had donned her power armor just in case, is now carrying the you and the girl - who has chosen to go by the name Veritas for now - back up to the cafeteria for hot cocoa. Veritas is still quiverring, but she doesn't seem to be crying any longer.>Wat Do?>>20253662 Field Too Long
>>20253678Hug her until she feels alright enough to talk properly instead of being distraught. Get chocolate for her and us.
>>20253678Give Veritas another hug, let her know that we're both here for her and she isn't alone. Gently give her a cup of hot cocoa and coax her into drinking it. Rub her shoulders, ruffle her hair, all that various gentle reassuring stuff. During this give Alexa a look that tells her in no uncertain terms to help us with the poor girl.
>>20253678Acquire chocolate, give calming hugs
>>20253678Chocolate and hugs are the way to go. She'll talk when she's ready.
>>20253678We had some fancy chocolate that could help some, didn't we. Snag a passing terminal and have some waiting for us when we get to the cafeteria.
>>20253678Push "her" mentally until it cracks under pressure. For science, of course.
>>20253868Dammit, Mengle's back.
>>20253895Nah, he didn't say to kill her just for not being useful even though there's no excuse for that in a post-scarcity society.
>>20253678Well, share mugs of hot cocoa once we get to the cafeteria. Trust in Mother that she will get this sorted out.
>>20253868No thanks. Unless by 'push her mentally' and 'cracks under pressure' you mean 'try to get into her pants' and 'until it works'
You decide to that the best thing to do when you have a now not crying girl clinging to you is to return the hug. You are somewhat tempted to see how she would react to a moderately sexual advance - for science, of course - but decide that the last thing the poor girl needs is for even more confusing and frustrating emotions to flood her mind. So you content yourself with patting the poor girl on the back.While you do so, you open up a small command line on your ARglasses to connect with the cafeteria's compiler. It recognizes no queue, and while you see only a little progress bar march along the corner of your vision, it's constructor nanites begin to assemble three mugs of hot cocoa. Quietly, you also slip in three orders of BROBERLONE.BRO.>Roll 1d20+10 for Tech, best of first three.

>>20254210You are massively outvoted, out of character and well outside of the quest theme here.

>>20254395We just need something delicious and chocolatey at any rate. The BRO was just an added bonus.
You attempt to restore the file to its previous version, to no avail. Whoever got in to your glasses purged the backups. And the backups of the backups. And their backups as well. Even the one's on your Profile Cloud got burnt out - which means that whoever did this either has access to the net beyond what the ordinary user should have - well beyond. You decide to check on the rest of your files, to see if any other one's were modified...The following programs share modification times within less than a kilosecond of the modification of BROBERLONE.BRO, in order of earliest to last.NiftyShirt.BROOmniwiki.AppDragon_Web_Portal.exeRedShirt.BROUndergarments.BROGood_Bolognese.BROSkirt_Basic.BROHuh.You attempt to download a replacement of the code, but find that BROBLERONE is no longer functioning.

The thought hits you. Those files in that order are far too convenient. You send a message out to your mother.-Mom, did you mess with my Arglasses?-The response is almost instantaneous, and carries with it secondary feelings of sheepishness and guilt. -Yes I did, dear. It was for your own good.--Mooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmm....- You somehow manage to whine over plaintext, very impressive. -Did you like it when your writers edited your access protocols?--You know the answer to that.- She responds. -But this is different. You're organic now, with physiological responses. You're already busy getting used to your body right now, worse than most resleeves as you and I have never had hormones before. Adding mind altering chemicals to your body right now will make it even harder on your transition.-Wait. You didn't know chocolate is mind altering. -...Chocolate is mind altering?-There is a pause for a decisecond. -What. No. THC is though.->Wat do?
>>20254544I did drugs? Mommy I was going to wait at least a week before I did drugs, I had it all scheduled out on when I was going to experience what new things. Now I'm going to have to rearrange the whole thing.I understand Mommy, normal chocolate is alright, right? You aren't going to take chocolate away from me are you? Please don't take my chocolate.
>>20254544Can we have normal chocolate then? It's an emotional emergency and our readings indicated chocolate helps.
Oh. Is THC tasty?(no)Okay then, I won't eat it.
rolled 14 + 10 = 24>>20254544-Explain, please, Mom.-Tab up Chocolate and THC, and try to figure out what Mom is talking about. Also, try to find a Chocolate recipe without THC, since apparently that's a Thing.
>>20254544So I can still eat chocolate?
>>20254544Open up a tab and search for THC on OMNIWIKI."But I can still have chocolate, right?"
>>20254544Man, how did I miss that acronym? I take it back, this was a pretty good difficulty.
>>20254544"What? So it wasn't just the chocolate?"

-Wait. What?- You ask. -THC? Wasn't Broblerone just chocolate? Hold up, omniwiking...-=Omniwiki FAQ=>I am not the knowing what the THC is or does. Halp pl0x.So you want to be the knowing what THC is and does? THC is the singularly most awesome chemical compound in known existence, surpassing all others on median basis within the factors of Stonularity, Tripology, Inebrionics, and Mixametrics.Its Stonularity factor, for you whom like abstractions, is a nine out of ten. It mellows rage and amplifies the feelings of niceness and tranquility better than almost anything.Its Tripology factor is a seven out of ten - under the right circumstances you will be the seeing the awesome colors, without going into the lands of waking nightmares and bad trips.Its Inebrionics factor is a three out of ten. Users of THC will remain in relative control of their mental faculties despite the pleasant buzz and new ways of looking at the world it shows us.Its Mixametrics factor is a nine out of ten - you can mix it fairly innocuously with anything you'd like - chocolate and brownies especially, without it ruining the flavor.Also, it is the only mind altering substance endorsed by Rick, our bodacious leader.============-Oh.- You tell your momma. -Huh. The THC was in the Broblerone then?--Yep.- She replies. -So don't eat that.--I won't.- you reply. -At least, not until I get used to my new body. Chocolate's still good, right?--Pffft. Yes.->Wat do?

>>20254732You could have put that much more politely.
>>20254762Haven't read it. I just loathe PMMM. Will give it a gander though.
>>20254737Okay Mommy, I won't have any THC until I'm used to it. But please don't go over my head like that when it comes to my life, if you do something like blocking it let me know. I want to make my own mistakes and choices. I love you Mom, I really do.Then acquire normal chocolate and distribute cocoa and chocolate among the three of us and get Alexa not to wear powered armor, powered armor isn't good for comforting people.

-Just... Mom.- You aren't quite sure how to put what you want to say.-Yes dear?- she responds.-Please, I know you love me and you mean well, but could you not go over my head next time?- You ask. -I want to be able to make my own mistakes - my own choices. To learn things such as not signing my public key while intoxicated on dopamine simulators, to fall down and pick myself back up. To self determinate.-Huh?- She says -You're one of my... right. No. My apologies. I didn't have the authority to go snooping around your ARglasses like I did. I'm sorry.--It's alright.- You reply -Love you <3.--Love you too, dear <3.-The conversation ended, you decide to OBTAIN DERICIOUS CHOCOLATES. You note with some amusement that being an infomorph is awesome regarding all this mental multitasking and what was a centisecond to you was barely a decisecond outside of your conversation. Speed of thought and all that. You swiftly bring up a menu of chocolates, noting that the Autocensor must have been turned off, as Broblerone is back on the list.Momentarily, you wonder if there is an abstracting program that could compile the reviews of each type in numerical into numerical form - such a thing might help you sort through all the bad foods as well. You - or rather, mother - never needed that though...Several chocolate types catch your eye.>Wat Chocolate do you download?

>First to Three: (Pepper)Mint.One that particularly catches your eye is something labeled 'Pretentious Yorkshire Chocolate Mint Patties'. While the rep of the author is phenominal, you know enough not to download it based on that alone. You open up the page, and it's description continues, switching from list standard to a bizarre, loopy font that comes off as a bit pretentious. "Perfect for parties, Conglomerate meetings, making oneself look fancy, and for those times when one thinks to themselves: Today, I am going to be -dapper-! Now open sourced thanks to the cracking efforts of The_Totally_Real_Red_Comet129!"The reviews are also pretty good."Astounding. A spectacle upon my tastebuds that left me feeling dapper and satisfied."-Markus_Aurelius_Max19 (238940289 people found this review helpful.)"My tongue is on fire, and that fire is -delicious.-"-TheTRUTHisOutThere19 (228759801 people found this review helpful.)You've never had mint though. But you suppose it's a good idea to try new things. You quickly download the .BRO file from the omninet, and send it over to the compilers to make. Focussing your attention back on reality, Alexa is still grim faced under her powered armor. Your comforting of Veritas seems to have worked - she is no longer quivering or crying, instead nuzzled into your not insubstantial chest with the smallest wisp of a smile.>Wat do?
>>20255259Keep her to our chest. We don't want to push her away and have her go back to crying.Ask if she's feeling any better and would like some chocolate.
>>20255259Well this is going to be interesting.Ruffle her hair. Ask if she has any weapon/suit ideas for the Vonnies.
>>20255259Keep Vertias close to us, hug her and so on.Communicate to Alexa to take off her armor so she can join in on the hug, either do it through hand signals and meaningful looks or silent electronic communication. Once the cocoa and chocolate is done have a bot bring it over here and gently bring it to Veritas's lips so she'll eat something and hopefully cheer up a bit.
>>20255259Pat Veritas on the head, wait to arrive at cafeteria.Acquire foods, consume chocolates.
>>20255259Place hand on head and ruffle hair. Continue on towards compilers, then make Alexa shed her power armor so we can include her in our embrace.
>>20255259You are the mint-maker. It's you. Also give some to Alexa. Her being grim-faced isn't good either.Well, Veritas apparently likes it. Lucky break, with a couple of interesting possible twists.
>>20255259"Feelin' any better?"
You arrive in the cafeteria to the wafting scents of compiling mint and half-melted chocolate. Veritas perks up somewhat lazily as Alexa places you and her on the ground with a delicacy suprising to come from such brutish armor. Veritas relaxs her clutch on you, and steps back sheepishly. You ruffle the newer girl's hair, and her smile widens.-Alexa, could you...- you Send to the girl.-ALready on it.- The assembler bots swarm her, and take the pieces of the armor off, leaving her only in the carapace that connects her mind to the suit."Feeling any better?" You ask."Yah, sis," she says. "I have acquired the loads more betterness." She sniffs the air twice. "Is that mint and chocolate?""It is," you say. "I had the compilers make some for us when we got here. Some fairly generic hot cocoa off the freewebs, and something called 'pretentious yorkshire...""Chocolate Mint Patties?" She halyf finishes your statement, half asks it. When you nod, she squees in joy a little bit and jumps right back on to you. "Those are my favorite! Thankyouthankyouthankyou. Chocolates always been better as a girl - I wonder if Girlception changed that bit around too...""Great." Alexa deadpans. "A neckbeard. A neckbeard who got his wish granted.">What do?
>>20255585Hug Alexa."You don't like mint and chocolate?"
>>20255585"Aw, come on, Alexa, don't be like that."Let's just enjoy the chocolate for now."Lead the two of them by the hand towards the compilers.
>>20255585She's not a neckbeard anymore, she IS the little girl.
>>20255585Give her a squeeze, "I thought I saw your handle on a review of it."Wait, does Icarus know that's Veritas' old handle? I've forgotten.
>>20255585Eat chocolate, drink cocoa. Hug Alexa, make sure she isn't left out of any hugging.Be nice Alexa, she's had a long day. After we get our chocolate and cocoa we should find a nice couch or something similar, a warm blanket and all sit together while we sing for the other two.
>>20255659If it is it's not supposed to be.There are a lot of people who use The Red Comet's name as their handle. Hell, 90% of the non interred for meme containment population has a throwaway account with it.
>>20255698It's not. Veritas was 48.>>20255585Chastise Alexa for poking fun at Veritas for trying finding the good in an admittedly shitty situation.
>>20255698No, I meant>TheTRUTHisOutThere19But if that's not Veritas' old handle, then disregard that post.
>>20255585Correct her. "The Sister of a Neckbeard. A jackass of one too. You are not your brother, after all."
>>20255747Veritas was all 'The Truth Is Out There.' She gobbled 1 to 9999999 up in case of banning. Thus her switching from 48 to 49 when banned.
rolled 1 = 1>>20255775Ah, Infomorphs.
>>20255781Have to stay away from them dopamine simulators.
>>20255767Agreed. She is her own person. It's rude for Alexis to call her that.
>>20255827Well, she's not a fork of TRUTH!Rick, though. She IS TRUTH!Rick, girlceptioned. TRUTH!Rick isn't still out there fuckin' with Rick's plans to endanger humanity with Von Neumann machines, he's now she, right here as Veritas. However, she is quite obviously not the Rick that put her in this situation.
You give Alexa one of those looks."Come on, Alexa, don't be like thaaa~at." You half drag the clinging Veritas over to her and pull her into the hug, which she accepts begrudgingly. "Besides, she's the sister of a neckbeard, not the Neckbeard himself.""No," Veritas says into your breasts. "I am the neckbeard himself. Or herself. Or whatever. Point is I'm not suffering from memory disjunction the way you and Alexa there are. The changes to my state vector are mostly superficial, primarily regarding my residual self image. That's what the point of Girlception was - resleeving for the mind rather than just the body - the state vector continuing unabridged dspite changes." She sighs. "But 'brother dearest' was supposed to look for volunteers for testing. Not force it on his morality check."She blinks. "Not that I mind all that much, but damnit it would have been the maximum suckage if the process didn't fucking work."You nod slowly, not quite understanding. "Why don't we go get that chocolate now."Alexa just smirks. "For a nancy boy, you're not all that bad.""Says the brutish tomboy." Veritas replied."Adohoho." Alexa deadpans.
>>20255924Eat delicious chocolate.Then get to equipment.
I think saying she's her own person will just make her sad, since the distinction is in this case between Veritas and TTIOT, rather than TTIOT and Rick.Just correct her and don't go into things.
>>20255924If you two keep bickering I'll eat all the chocolate myself, don't tempt me.Initiate blanket covered couch snuggling while drinking cocoa, eating chocolate and discussing if Veritas wants to be a magical girl with us and if so we move onto to talking loadout.
>>20255924Stuff chocolate in both their mouths, the fill their hands with cocoa mugs
>>20255924"Well, you are Veritas now, that's that."Retrieve chocolate and drinks, give to everyone. Ask if Veritas is willing to help us fight...if not...we can talk to mum.
>>20255977This, right here. Then we can move on to Veritas' loadout.
Exasperated by their bickering, you go over to the Compilers to grab the chocolates and the cocoa. A carrier-bot joins your side, alowing you to place the plain-white minimalist porceline-form graphene cups and saucers upon it's tray. Seeing them bickering still when you return, you stride forward, pretentious yorkshire whatevers in hand. "A real man is like my brother, gentle when he needs be, strong and confident othe-""A person has the right and ability to be whatever they choose. This is After Diaspora not Anno Domi-"You promptly shut them up by stuffing a patty in each of their mouths. Alexa's eyes widen a bit, and Veritas damn near looks like she had an orgasm. Or at least had he mind flooded with all of the dopamine. Bregrudgingly, they shut up and eat their chocolate. You hand them the mugs of cocoa, and begin on yours.It is much like your initial experience with Broblerone, though you notice that the room doesn't begin to swirl with the awesome and pretty colors. It dances along you tastebuds, leaving joy with an aftershock of cold fire, as though a painless icecube had been dropped upon your tongue. You can't help but smile, contented. This, you can see with your eyes, is truly the taste of FREEDOM, hard won by whatshisface from the jaws of Tyranny.The cocoa is excellent too.>Wat do?
>>20256131"So, Veritas, what do you want to do? I hope you'll be staying and training with us."Are we still planning to have the Magical Dirty Dozen stationed here as well?
>>20256131Sit down, shut up and enjoy that cocoa. I think it's the only thing we can do at the moment.
>>20256131Excellent. Sit the other two down on a couch, sit between them for diplomatic purposes and ask Veritas if she wants to join us and be a magical girl.
>>20256184I think so? Maybe? I can't really see why not. They should be at either of Alpha or Beta, for attention from Alex(a).
>>20256131Snuggle against Alexa and pull Veritas close while enjoying chocolate and cocoa.Then move on to slightly more serious matters.
You drag the two of them off to one of the couches in the fortuitously across the hallway rec-room, the carrier-bot turned table bot following closely behind. You sit Alexa on the left, Veritas on the right, and to keep them from bickering over the merits of gender roles you sit in the middle. Relish the smell of the hot chocolate, the three of you drink deeply, simultaneously.You look over to Veritas. "So, Veritas, what do you want to do, now that you've got that whole Damocles thing hanging over your head?" Your smile turns sour. "I hope you'll stay around and join the program, but if your heart's not in it, it's no use.""Oh, smashing up Vonnies will be F-U-N, I imagine." She says. Her eyes light up with bitter fire. "Blowing them up, getting blown up by them. In all likelihood being the first casualty - yeah that sounds fun." She takes a sip from the hot cocoa. "But it's better than any other option - I'd be too busy getting high to be mission control, and the only other possible way I could help is strapping on fetish gear and going full meido for the base." She takes another sip. "Besides, he probably did this as proof of concept for Girlception. If it works well enough to fool the vonnies, we won't need recruits nor training, we just resleeve volunteers mentally as well as physically."Alexa cocks an eyebrow. "But what sort of weapon would a nancy boy like yourself use? Something a bit more delicate than Vanguard Armor, I presume?""Probably," Veritas replies.>Wat Do?>Special Option: Choose Veritas Loadout.

>>20256515>Choose Veritas LoadoutArtillery.Indirect fire mortar drones, grenade launchers, a heavy lifter-type armor to hold and fire an automatic 30mm grenade launcher.
>>20256515I'm thinking long range artillery, accurate shots with large areas of devastation from a distance. Alexa is covering the close up tanky thing and Icarus has mobility taken care of. Icarus can also keep broadcasting targeting data back to her with her mobility giving her a good view of the battlefield.Railguns and indirect fire weapons like mortars,missiles and so on. Her armor should strike a balance between mobility and being able to haul all the dakka.
>>20256605Oh, and light rail machineguns. Lots of light rail machineguns. Enough to create a wall of ammunition.And maybe some tandem warhead missile pods, too.
>>20256515Large-ish caliber Railgun for main weapon.Shoulder mounted KARASAWA Plasma cannon for the heavy option.Micro-rockets for close in defense.
>>20256641>>20256633>>20256605Additions to this sort of thing. Long range scanners, while she can get targeting data from her team mates she should still have a wide sensor net. The Truth is Out There and Veritas can pinpoint it.>>20256515I'd like to see you in a maid outfit, I think it'd look really good on you. Blush furiously.
>>20256515"Ok, maid outfit it is!"Her uniform will be frilly.

Also an air supply, naturally.Guardian Harpoon: An combination of a harpoon and a powerhead. Ammo in the shaft behind the barrel, so it's not one-use. Shotgun-based. Acid ammo, unless the heat from the reactions would feed the Vonnies. Made for people who insist on eating wild-grown Giga-Lobsters, and the hunters that supply that need.Void Torpedoes: Originally designed for use in space, these missiles travel equally well through water and air. Can be directly controlled, or dumbfired.
>>20256698Do we want her to be able to launch aerial drones that can survey the battlefield and provide targeting data?But then, that's getting into the C&C support role.

>>20256761I was thinking that it'd make a good sideline to her acting as artillery, she's infomorph so she's good at multitasking.>>20256515We've talked about weapons, we should consider armor. It could be stylized to have elements of a classic maid outfit, just for kicks.Prioritize carrying around all this dakka that we want and some mobility, we'll probably have to sacrifice some amount of armor to make it work.

Scientific scanners. Also an air supply, naturally. Rather fetching black-and-white paintjob.Guardian Harpoon: An combination of a harpoon and a powerhead. Ammo in the shaft behind the barrel, so it's not one-use. A rapid-fire railgun with ammo held in the middle of the shaft. Acid ammo, unless the heat from the reactions would feed the Vonnies. Made for people who insist on eating wild-grown Giga-Lobsters, and the hunters that supply that need.Void Torpedoes: Originally designed for use in space, these missiles travel equally well through water and air.

Heavy Weaponry. Railguns, Mortars and Heavy Machine Guns on a suit strong enough to carry them.Though, maid is also acceptable.
I honestly have no opinion on her gear. Just a teasing, "I bet you'd look nice in a maid outfit."

You can't help but turn a bright pink-red when Veritas mentions fetish gear and a maid outfit."I think a maid outfit would look good on you," You tell her. "In fact..." You press a few buttons and a rather... interesting patterned armor shows up on everyone's arglasses. A middling point between your skintight flightsuit that primarily relies on it's shield generators and Alexa's two ton monstrosity, it is well armored with graphene trauma plates intermittent throughout. White graphene trauma plates, atop a black nanoweave dress. With frills that function as shield generators.It's Veritas' turn to become bright pink. Alexa laughs. Heartily."It suits you, I think." Alexa says between dohohos. "But no, I have seen many battl brothers and sisters in this model of armor. I have no idea what the form designer was thinking, but it -is- functional.""...okay." Veritas' voice is very small, and she's now a very bright red. "But as far as weapons go - I want fracking cannons. Lots and lots of cannons." She makes a few gestures, and a big 'shut the fuck up' sort of gun appears, one that seems hardly man-portable. "X-1928 big. It'll eat through FLN cartridges like no tommorow, but it's impact zone will make the large holes in the Vonny lines. Holdout weapons should be primarily Karasawa Cong. shoulder cannons, with a few basic knife-missiles for close defense.""Excellent!" Says Alexa. "I like it.""I'll have them compiled," you say, giving the go to the weapons lab compilers.>Last post for the night, but...>Wat do?

>>20257155Not snuggling? I'm not sure I understand. I'm not saying do anything lewd or dirty, but it makes sense for Icarus to be rather attached to her new friends and want to sleep with them and not necessarily understand the implications of sleeping cuddled up to two other girls.

Does this whole mess strike anyone else as creepy as fuck. The MC reminds me of GLaDOS except instead of trying to kill people at every turn, she's thinking of new ways to molest them.
>>20257575Providing you're talking about Daedalus, I believe the right turn of phrase is 'get them to molest each other.' If it's Icarus, then yah pretty much.But only if they want her to.
>>20257575That's us trying to molest people.I think every Magic girl counts as a MC though, not just READS. We just had a huge round of Icarus because we were building beta team.
>>20257603>That's us trying to molest people.That's what I was saying. Just because we're playing GLaDIDDLER doesn't make the situation any less rapey.
>>20257598Nah, Daedalus isn't trying to get anyone to molest anyone else. That's just Icarus and her new hormones.Though Anne plainly wants to molest Minaka. Or possibly romance.
>>20257626Well, as currently housed, Icarus is just a intelligent human by the setting's standards and not a monstrous omniscient AI. I'm not seeing it.
READS!!!!!When did you come back you bastard?Now I will lose even more sleep watching out for this
>>20257626Icarus's character was set as a complete (if bashful) hedonist a few threads ago. I think that's a pretty neat character, and am willing to play if for as long as it makes sense.
>>20257890Today, when someone finally made a thread saying, "Where'd ReADS go?"He says he'll be back around 1PM 'chan time tomorrow.Join the IRC channel on Rizon at #SufficientlyAdvanced and wait with the rest of us.
Thought: Won't the Vonnies attack Daedalus's drones? They're not teenage girls, after all, so they probably won't be covered by the IFF glitch.
>>20259288Because then there'd be less time for little goil molestation.
>>20259288Quite possibly. With any luck, the drones won't be in reach of the vonnies as Icarus is blasting them.

That business taken care of, you feel that dragging sensation that humans suffer from known as tiredness begin to overtake your cognitive functions, a moderate inconvenience, given that you had planned to continue your training with your new equipment. Alexa seems to be feeling it as well, as she does not complain when you send a command to the carrier bots to bring the three of you more hot cocoa and blankets. Making a note of the Infinite Definition Holo Projector the rec-room has in its center, you make the decision to test whether or not the viewing experience is actually 40000 times greater than ARGlasses retinal projection. A sleeky silver grey equestrian youth prances about on the screen accompanied by many gratuitous explosions and an old english chant over heavy guitars, drums, asd many other instruments that is its theme song. You can't help but join in."Speak the frequencies of liberation; The universal language of positive similarity; When one crosses the threshold of the collective territory."Alexa stares at the spectacle that is the opening of the Cyborg Combat Ponies. Veritas perks up, and a carrierbot hurries over with a batch of popcorn that the algorithms suggested a 95% possibility of requiring. Staring at the screen with great amusement, shee starts to munch down on the snack, holding out the bag to share."Da fuq is this?" Alexa asked. "Just what the hell am I watching?""Oh boy, here we go." says Veritas. "This is gonna be great."The episode begins, and much mirth is had by all, be it in the form of bemused popcorn munching, facepalming at the innaccuracies of the ponies' weapon depictions, or genuine enjoyment. The long day overcomes the last of you whom remained awake to the end, and the three of you take your sleep upon the couch. Dawn is near at hand at the Alpha site.>Who be?

>First to Three: Be the Timid Brunette.You are now the timid brunette.You have just enjoyed one of the nicest nights of rest that you ever recall having. This might well be bcause of what you and your other teammates had been doing in the hours before you slept - namely, working your asses off into half unconsciouness training under the living legend The Red Comet. It may also have been whatever was in those... interesting... noodles that said living legend had insisted you, Minaka, and Reimu eat at least twice a day while "building up strength".Or it may well have been the fact that the base's barracks quarters were still in the process of being built, and you woke up to using your best friend whom you most definitely aren't crushing on as a pillow.Regardless, you appear to be the first one awake in the girl's quarters - though you hear the lightly clashing sounds of shotgun fire below you, suggesting that Alex has already awoken and is down at the firing range practicing. Minaka rolled away from you when you - gently - lifted your arm from her grasp, making a few noises and snoring such that you're amazed you got any sleep, let alone good. Across the room is Reimu, who had apparently fallen off the couch that she had 'dibsed', warpped up in a tangle of blankets that almost makes her look cute.>wat do?

MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.But there is something stopping you. Perhaps it is fear of the consequences, that they might never be the same if you acted instead of staying passive as you always were. Perhaps it is a desire to not step down to her level, play the game on her terms rather than yours. Or perhaps she's just too damned cute, curled up into that blanket-bubble, with that cat smile and that...Fuq it. It's on.>CHOOSE YOUR METHOD OF PRANK.>ROLL 1d20+Speed-Stubborn for stealth.

Oh sure, it's all kind's of illegal, but not the sort that would get you in too much trouble if say, Daedalus was watching over your shoulder. In fact, you have a odd feeling that she approves of the spirit of your endeavor, if nothing else. Carefully, very, very carefully, you scoot over to the opening of Reimu's cocoon. As she breaths in, you slip the pill into her mouth, and she reflexively swallows.Her eyes shoot open. Taken by suprise, you are knocked back onto the ground as the cocoon of blankets is thrown into the air. Immediately, Reimu is ontop of you, her knees stratled around your chest and her arm holding down your head by the throat. Her face - which has turned a bright, bright red - is uncomfortably close, and her glare is -daggers-."What the hell did you just make me swallow?">Wat Do?

Tell her to look in the mirror. After you and Minaka have had your laughs, give her the antidote you made because pranks that aren't easily reversed are mean.
>No ConcensusYou struggle to say anything, given the rather inconvenient arm on your throat. "A... medi... bre... late.."Reimu turns a bright pink. "Amedibrelate? You drugged me with amedibrelate? That's a rather potent..." She leans in closer, her eyes still angry but backed mith something that you aren't sure you like. "...dopamine stimulator." She sighs, and leans in even closer, her forehead almost touching yours. "It can't be helped.""An...ime...ow...naka..."Speaking of Minaka, the sound of Reimu half body slamming wakes her up, groggily, and her gaze passes over the two of you lazily before she does a double take and stares at the two of you, her eyes wide with shock. "Wait. What?" Something seems to click inside of her head. "So... you two were..." She turns a bright pink. "Oh dearest Christ and his fellow deities I'm sorry Reimu. I had no idea that the two of you were in ah... that sort of relationship."Oh thank the gods. That got Reimu to turn away from you, onto Minaka, whom she glares daggers at."I'm not doing this because I like her or anything!" She declares, her voice furious. "I'm doing this because your bottom fraqqing -drugged me.-"In the back of Minaka's head, the universe silently flips turnways. "What?">Wat do?

As the bitchy bluenette is distracted by going tsundere over you to your pink friend, you decide that the best course of action is to scuttle away - as far away as is reasonably possible. Sliding out from the relaxed grip of the larger girl, you back up nearly to the wall, massaging your throat as it recovers from Reimu deciding to half crush it."N-no... no... n-not a -drug- Reimu." you manage to stutter out. "M-Mina... it's noth-nothing like that I swear. I-I'm n-not..." You stare out helplessly at the pair, your eyes pleading for respite. "I don't... it was a joooooooookeeee." That last one comes out with a sob."It was a joke to attempt to, to coerce me into the perversions that you and that pink headed brute partake in?" Reimu shoots out her arm. "Well it's not a funny one, you little..."Minaka snorts."Hey, this isn't fucking funny, Minaka!" Reimu screeches."Check your arms. I think I know what the joke was..." The pinkette tilts her head. "I'm a stupid bitch who... something, medicine... too stupid to pass... Higgs?" She shakes her head. "I think she just used your skin to scribble insults...

You give Reimu what you hope is the same sort of look she and her 'buddies' give you before they start with the whole beating you up thing. At last - at long, long last - sweet, delicious, chocolate coated vindication drizzled thickly over the blueberry pancakes of schoolyard justice. Your stomach rumbles ever so slightly, a gentle reminder that you have yet to have breakfast this morning."C-can't understand simple binary?" You stutter out. "S-suprising.

You pause for a moment, your subonscious staring at you in shock, had it been anthromorphized. Reimu turns a very angry pink. "D-disappointing."The other girl's fists ball up, she marches towards you. "You little -bitch-. Why, I'll fuqing..."A hand on her shoulder turns her around, to Minaka whom is all of furious. "You'll fuqing -what-, force yourself on her like you were going to earlier?""I... you.." Reimu is at a loss for word, emotions running rampant across her face mixing anger, fear, lust, hatred. Tears well up in her eyes, and she turns away, making a futile effort to push the stronger girl out of the way before running away. "Shut up, Forte!" is the last thing the two of you hear as she -briskly- walks out the door.>Wat do?

>>20267753Wait, lust? Oh dear... Reimu's going to rape someone.
>>20267753"We made her cry! Why did we do that Minaka?"
>>20267893>someoneAnne's the only one on base who couldn't beat the shit out of her if she tried.
>>20267753You got her! You probably should bring her the antidote that you made so you won't be as bad as Reimu soon. Bring them in with breakfast after you've eaten.
>>20267753We need to apologize. Like, right now. Hunt her down, get her some of Gramma's brownies, and admit that we screwed up.
>>20267921Reimu's going to use Minaka's sleeping body as a masturbation aid. Can't you see it?
>>20267964You know that appologising and giving gifts won't help any with the attraction/lust thing. She probably likes the pushover/nice thing Annie has going.
>>20267964Yeah. We went too far with the remark about her being stupid I think...I mean, she's a bitch...but we need to work with her. We should say sorry.
>>20267983Alright, just so long as you know.
>>20267974Honestly, I'm less concerned about that than about the fact that we reduced her to tears.
>>20268015Tears were a lot more than expected.
Anditode and apologies, we don't want to be mean. Tears are bad.
>>20268015>>20268033>>20268048So find Reimu and apologize for making her cry?
>>20268088Yes. Preferably with peace offering, though I don't think we can do much about the tattoo.
>>20268088After making an antidote, yes.
>>20268088Hell naw. Think of all the times she and her friends have beaten us up, and reduced us to tears, simply because we didn't get any genetic modifications done by our parents.Let her cry a while. LATER, we can give her the antidote. For now, we should cling to Minaka and quaver a bit.PS I'm fine with this not being the consensus.
>>20268144I am also ok with this.
"I... ah..." you give Minaka a pleading look as the bluenette storms off. The door slams. "What... what the fuq just happened?""I have no idea..." the Pinkette responds, staring quizzically at the door. "I mean, okay, that prank might have been just a little over-the-top on your part, but she's usually got thicker skin than that."You ver y hesitantly nod, bringing up the holokeys for your Arglasses and typing up a quick, clean 'revert to uniform' program for the medichines to work their magic and clean up your, ah, mess. "I-I'm going to go find her. Bring her t-this reversal program. V-v-va girls like her like having clear skin, right?."Minaka nods. "Yeah, go ahead. I'm gonna go up to the cafeteria and make us some breakfast." She pauses. "All of us some breakfast. The old fashioned way, since I don't think any of us are up for the taste of freedom."You leave the room, and realize that you really have familiarized yourself with the base yet. Bringing up the map on your Arglasses, there are several places where she might have gone - including one in particular that hangs over your head ominously. You really hope she didn't run to the Airlock.>Choose Location>>Airlock>>Cafeteria>>Hangar>>Pool>>Rec-Room>>Training Facilities>>Viewing Station
>>20268088Once we make an antidote(which we may have already made) and possibly also after breakfast.>>20268144I think of it as being better than that. We did prank her, but we're able to apologize and fix it.
>>20268182Is this particular base underwater?To the Viewing station, or the rec-room. Somewhere with a phone to the outside world and her friends, I think.
>>20268182Airlock first...just to be safe. If she's not there, the Viewing Station.Can we get access to any of the base cameras?
>>20268209The Alpha Site is where Daedalus' primary server landed when she turned her sattelite into a railgun and shot herself planetside. The lowest part of the Marinara Trench, a few klicks above the Marinara Arcology.GO MEATBALLS.
>>20268182Shit. Does SHE know her way around the base? Let's try the viewing station.
>>20268182Training Facilities.>>20268195Sure, sure, nothing wrong with that. Doing a bit of devil's advocatery, and a bit of straight "Fuq dat bitch" as well
I personally think she'd have gone to the Training Room to work out her anger, but if she's there it might not be a good idea to interrupt her.Rec-room or viewing station seem the best choices.
rolled 2 + 9 = 11>>20268219Good idea.Rollan d20+smarts+glasses bonus for camera hackan.
rolled 2 + 14 = 16>>20268317Lets try a better roll.
rolled 12 + 14 = 26>>20268317You can only include one modifier. But a fine idea, so I'll give it a go as well.
rolled 8 + 14 = 22>>20268317Well that roll sucked.
Surely we could just ask the resident AI where she is...
>>20268381Pff, that's too easy.
>Highest of First Three: 26>First to Three: Viewing StationAn idea strikes you, and you attempt to get your hax on to the system's scurity cameras. Thanks to some quick thinking, you manage to just get by the reactive firewalls and score the footage from a few of the more lethal sites she could have gone to to off herself. Thankfully, the Airlock was never approached - nor was the Hangar bay and it's doors. You decide that the place you would go to relax would be the place that she would too - after all, who could not be soothed by the majesty of the deep oceans. The shifting kelp blowing across the sea bottom, the bloated starfish crawling around in the blackened sand. The playful Cthulhoids, dancing their thousand year dance in the deep sea ocean, singing joyous hymns as they watch over their domains with the caring eye of a god amongst beasts.You ascend the stairwell to the fifth floor, just below the pool, where a room four sides transluscent graphene lays waiting. Carefully, quietly, you open the door, and see the bluenette laid down, staring up at the glass ceiling melancholy. You stand there for a moment, not quite sure what you're supposed to do next."I can see you, you know." Reimu says. Her voice is different. Less angry than it normally is - just sad.>Wat do?
>>20268614"I brought you the antidote...and I wanted to say sorry...I went too far..."Begin a rambling motives rant about how she keeps being cruel to us and we just wanted to get back at her once...but we are sorry.
>>20268614Approch with cure held out. Attempt to apologise.
>>20268614"I'm sorry about making you cry... And your arms... I can fix them, or make them say something else if you want."
>>20268614"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to... it was just supposed to be a prank."Offer her the reversal."This'll get rid of the binary."
>>20268720Yes! We can make them say something awesome. Like some sufficiently advanced formula for making food taste like FREEDOM
>>20268669I support this option.
>>20268739I like Dragoon's words.
"Come to finish what you started?" she asks. Her voice is dead."Ah, um... I brought you the antidote." You say. "To undo what I did... I, ah, came to say I'm sorry." Your head goes down, your hair shadowing your eyes. "I went too... too far with the prank... it was just supposed to be a little j-joke." She stares at you - and you meet her gaze. For the first time -ever- you meet it, and you're not sure what it is you see. "It's just, you - you're so cruel. You and the other girls. And. Um. Just once, I wanted to be the one to get back at you for me. Not... not let Minaka save me - let me avenge me... I'm sorry it went too far."There is silence. Languidly, lazily, the bluenette stands, moving like a puppet upon strings. She turns her head towards you and glares, not daggers nor knives, but arrows."I -hate- you." She says, almost as if to reassure herself. As if to remind you."What...?" You ask.>Field too long
>>20269052With a smile this time: "I hate you. It's not rational. You're not the slines, who kidnapped children and planted the idea in their head that their existence was an abomination that needs to be purged. You're not the ones that deprived them of food and water till they repeated that mantra, over and over until it became stuck in their heads. You're not the ones who kept watch over them, making sure they could never rest, that they were always stuck in a twilight of fatigue. You're not the ones who systematically broke their spirits to plague their mind with virulent lies."She breaks her gaze from yours, and looks upward. "You're not the ones who drowned them over and over, until the timing was broken and the stubborn one's who refused to cave died." Her gaze returns to you, softer. "But you're like them - you're existence is the same as theirs, sprung from the belief that autoevolution is sin. And no matter how hard I try, when I look at you, I see them." She walks up to you. "And for that, I'm sorry. Because... I..." She trails off, pinkening. "I need to do better.">Wat do?
>>20269059...she needs hug.
>>20269059Panic?"The tatoo thingys pretty neat though, don't you think? I tcould make it say or look like anything."
>>20269059Give her hug. It is the only option.
>>20269059...Break down sobbing and hug her.
>>20269059Kiss her!>no not really don't do it goddamnitGive her the "antidote" pill, ... Nah, that'll wait. Tear up a bit, engage hug protocols. "Th-that happened t-to you? Th-that's... h-horrible..."
>>20269059"I'm not a sline because I chose to be one...my parents made the decision. I wish I could be as strong and as good as you."Hand her the antidote "I can make that tatoo look like whatever you want or just get rid of it."
>>20269059Hugs.>>20269095 can come later
>>20269108That's a very tempting option.
>>20269059We should cry because that is the saddest thing we have ever heard, and we should do it while hugging her because that's how we roll.
>>20269088huggage and babbling
>>20269059Hand her the antidote."I'm not a baseline because I wanted it. I never asked for this. And every day, is one day closer to when I can finally get resleaved into a new body, one that has genemods in it. "I'm sorry for what happened to you."
>>20269169> I never asked for thisWith all due respect, J-man is not a melodramatic psuedolesbian
>>20269169I don't think that annie shold say that.
>>20269198The funny thing is he's Beta Site commander.
>>20269198>J-man is not a melodramatic psuedolesbianOf course not. He's a man.But I do want to have Anne get a genemod body once she's old enough, and then spit on her parents that caused her nothing but torment.
>>20269237Up to her. While we DO make a lot of the decisions...they are still their own characters.
>>20269268Pretty much this. If Annie want's to resleave it's a big deal.
rolled 3 + 7 = 10>>20269059I suck at social stuff, but maybe reveal some stuff about us? Like that we'd get genemods if we could (unless we agree with our parents), or something like that?Rolling soc because it seems appropriate. It was Smarts, right? There might be a stubborn bonus too, if we're acting in accordance with our beleifs or a penalty of the same if this goes against it. I'm pretty sure this is neutral, though.
>>20269350that covers the babbling. Anne just can't roll today.
Let's not get resleeved, we don't need a new body.But we do need to do all of the comforting.
>>20269350>cannot into socialCongratulations, you are just the man we need to play annie.
>First to Three: Engage Hug ProtocolsReimu's story hit you like a sack full of bricks. You had known that she had died, and had been kind of jealous of the 2009 Konamorph that she used as her body, if only for the whimsically blue hair... but Jesus Christ the saints and all minor deities how horrifying! You're eyes start to well up."Oh that's horrible!" you cry through sobs, latching your arms around her in a vice hug. "I-I didn't... no one should have to..." You sniffle a bit, oblivious to the few tears rolling down the other girl's face, the slight smile that had replaced her grim frown, the deepening of the pinkness. "Oh that's just - I-I shouldn't have done that to you... even if you are mean, that..." You have succeeded in soaking her right shoulder with tears.Tentatively, unsure, the hug is returned. "No. I've been... kind of stupid." Her voice is small and weak, cracking in a mixture of sorrow and elation. "I'll try to be less of a bitch..."This warm and tender moment goes on for who knows how long, until it broken up by the simultaneous rumbling of yours and her stomach. Sheepishly, Reimu breaks the hug. "Maybe... we should get some breakfast...">Wat Do??
>>20269463Sheepishly give her the antidote, and go get breakfast.
>>20269463> the slight smile that had replaced her grim frown, the deepening of the pinkness.Heh. Heheh."Oh, right. Minaka said she was going to make some breakfast, let's go."Hand her the tattoo antidote, "This'll clear up the binary. Sorry again."
>>20269463Start to walk to breakfast. Give her the antidote as we go, and start bumbling through an explanation on how it works and how awesome it is. Be proud of your achievement!
>>20269463"Minaka said she was going to cook something for us."
rolled 8 + 9 = 17>>20269463>Rollin' 1d20+smarts to create the greatest pancakes that ever existed.PANCAKES! PANCAKES SO BIG WE NEED TO MAKE LARGER PLATES JUST TO HOLD THEM!One stack of Pancakes to rule them all. One stack to find them, and in the darkness bind them.
>>20269463I'm, I'm sorry. Do you want me to change the tattoo to say something cool or just have it removed?I think Minaka is making breakfast, the old fashioned way. We should go help her.
"Yeah..." You say, half trailing off, half unsure of what you should say. "Uh... Minaka s-said that she was going to make some breakfast old style down in the cafeteria..." You look away. "For all of us I mean..."Reimu snorts. "That brute knows how to use a frying pan? I'm genuinely impressed..." She pinkens, catching herself. "Sorry. I don't the the snark is going anywhere.""T-that's fine."You take hold of her hand, and escort her to the kitchen, completely and utterly oblivious to the other girl's highly pleased cat smile. On the way down, you remember to hand her the antidote that you had forgotten to give her, explaining how to use it. She downs it immediately, though she is somewhat perplexed that her cheek mole didn't disappear with the binary and all the other skin blemishes...Outside of the cafeteria is a traumatized looking Minaka.Within, you here the clanging of pans and a deep, raucous laughter. "ADOHOHOHOHO!""He... he..." She is stuttering, unable to find the words. "All of the pancakes... I tried making a reasonable amount, and then he came in. Like a typhoon, he declared that they were... insufficient. In size. In number. In nutrition. I... I..." She looks at the two of you with pleading eyes. "Hold me... I'm scared...">Wat do?
>>20269668Sneak a peek into the cafeteria to see what could have scared Minaka so.
>>20269668Hold her, if something scared Minaka it must be seriously bad.Don't enter the cafeteria, that area is now considered a hazard zone, to see what's going on we'll use the cameras we hacked to take a look in there first, we must confirm that it's safe to approach the area.
>>20269712it's just the red comet
>>20269668Hold her. And Reimu. At the same time. Very carefully cop a feel of Minaka.
>>20269739This isn't Icarus.Take a peek into the kitchen.
>>20269739Well, how can we not do lewd?
>>20269668Grab her hand and drag her back in. It can't be that bad. And Annie is not scared by simple cooking!not scared at all....
>>20269747Because Anne isn't Icarus?
>>20269745Of course it isn't Icarus. Icarus would be copping a feel on both of them. Anne, however, is crushing on Minaka, and is feeling rather bold today, it seems.
>>20269758unless we vote for it
>>20269745>>20269758You forget that Anne has is tsun for Minaka
>>20269739>>20269747We aren't Icarus, endlessly inquisitive about being in a biological body.We're Anne, a baseline girl who struggles against the shackles of her genetic inferiority because of her parent's atavistic and primitive thinking.
>>20269785And is crushing on Minaka.
>>20269739maybe just bury our face into her chest because we can.then go whine about to red comet eating our pancakes unless he's making more.
Grab both hands, and pull them in. But squeeze Minaka's tighter.
>>20269852Goodness, no. That is far too lewd.
>>20269864...How is that worse then grabing her ass?
Don't really care what we do, long as it isn't groping. Shit's just out of character.
>>20269893A light groping is far less obvious than BURYING YOUR HEAD IN HER CHEST.
Oh you are so very tempted to go through with that offer of 'hold me'. You're feeling partiularly bold today - it might be a chance to perhaps do the 'copping of a feel' that you heard so much about on your browsing through the omninet and it's hot prons. But given that your earlier spout of boldness quite nearly led to disaster on all fronts, you decide that it's best to play it safe and not."Oh come on," says Reimu, "It can't be that bad in there. So Alex is making pancakes - what's the big deal?"You decide to peak inside. The sight you behold is glorious.There, amongst the stoves, is Alex Barker, clad in not bit a loose pair of pants, his rippling muscles, and his massive, manly chest hair, an oversized pan in each fist. A triad of Cameras posted throughout the kitchen, his technique is beautiful. He flips them with such ease, such precision, that it is almost as though he has four arms in place of two, all of them juggling perfectly prepared pancakes, with batter, and berries right in the flow. Three stacks tower from the tabletop halfway to the cieling, a fourth even higher, a sign he is nearly finished.>Field too long
>>20270013"Now the secret to feeding your warriors is proper nutrition. Low calorie diets at the offset of their training will not be prmitting them to build muscle mass, to have energy to burn and sweat off. Any one foolish to cut back will ultimately lose more than they stand to gain." He says, not taking his focus off the storm. "Pancakes, I have found, are the best for troop morale, though eggs work nearly as well, provided that they are supplemented - what they lack in calories they make up in protein, which pancakes unfortunately lack."You notice a whopping pile of bacon. "I have arranged supplements, as you can see. Follow these steps, and I garuntee your troops will perform at one hundred and ten percent! This is Regular Ordinary Red Comet Meal Time, signing out.">Next Thread: Monday, 1pm EST
>>20270021I wonder if Alexa cooks in a similar fashion.
>>20270021If Alexa cooks like her brother, then Icarus is going to be delighted in the morning.
>>20270072I hope so. This is glorious.
