You are a Magical Girl, and you're being asked to make a choice. One that's...well, you won't say it's the biggest one that you're being asked to make, so far, but it kind of up there. You're not sure if a bigger, more important one will come along in the future.Do you cut your losses now and go home, or risk everything to go for the last fragment of your haunted, broken friend? You've gathered three of her so far, each one found with a lot of running, a lot of fighting, and a lot of shouting. You've dodged death more times here than you've ever had in your entire pathetic career as a Callidus. You're not sure if you've got enough luck left to dodge more.But then again, you didn't exactly luck out, did you? You've managed to calm down an insane, tearful Witch from tearing everything apart in a tantrum. You've managed to bring an armored berserker out of her rage while she had you at bladepoint, with the rest of your allies dying or unconscious in the mud. You've slapped a bloodthirsty maniac armed with gigantic chainaxes into seeing sense - for what could be the first time in her life (and that was quite satisfying to do, if you'll be fair to yourself).
>>22905526Three fragments. You've been told by a Culexus - who should, by all rights, be long dead - that three would be enough to bring your sempai back into relative sanity. Out of this nightmare. Out this this nested barrier that you've grown not only to hate and despise, but also to pity. No twisted landscape formed out of a ruined Magical Girl's hopes and dreams, this was a graveyard of memories, of hope desperately clung to before being torn away by bloody claws.Of course, leaving with all three...that means leaving behind not only the Culexus, who seems to be cheerfully resigned to her fate, but also your friend, Mirai Wakaba. A friend that you've thought had Witched Out - but she was still here, still whole. At least, that's what she tells you."Come on, Hanegawa." Malal says to you. "Decide. This shouldn't be that hard of a choice."Three fragments are enough. Let's get out of here.We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.
>We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.She will never pull herself back together with missing pieces.
[X]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.I think this might actually be my very first time catching the start of one of your threads, bestculture! Eye am excite.
"No. It's not a hard choice at all."[x] We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.
>>22905542[x]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Go big or go home. ...Er, wait. That's literally the choice here, isn't it? Well, go big. We savin erryone. For friendship.
>We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Homu won't be homu if she isn't all there.
>>22905542>We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Senpai is Senpai. Even the bits of crazy and self-destructiveness. Without it, shes not whole, shes not the senpai I adore. Even the parts that make me want to slap her.
>>22905542>>[X]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Sempai is not sempai without her crazy....wait...
>>22905542"I would like to get out of here, there are just so many things out there that can bring me to a messy end but the last one. It's apart of my sempai a piece of her past. I am going to get her!>[x]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.We are coming for you RibbonHomura!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxFrqY9dAXE

>>22905542[X]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.>starting the thread at this timeDecu pls
>>22905542[x]Miracle Midori doesn't leave anyone behind.
>>22905542[x] We're finding all of them, including the crazy one
[x] Tripping all the deathflagsNo more Midori end.
>>22905720Arrr! We are a pirate now!
>>22905542Bring them outAll of themNone left behind except us as we die saving homu
We need to try and make sure either Kharn or Midori survive this ordeal, otherwise the quest's breast ratio will plummet and we'll only have poor Mami to shoulder the burden on her own.
[x] We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Since when has someone ever said Homuhomuhomu, it's always either Homuhomu or Homu homu homu homu. Just three is a sin.
>>22905926>either orWhat about the fleshmetal ratio?! No! It's not a question of one or the other! Leave no lesbian behind!
>>22905542>[x]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Now, how do we talk an insane, homicidal, and just-shy-of-witching-out despairing meguca into not killing her other selves and to cease to exist?Pinky hinted that she may have seen her pure self in this barrier somewhere. If that wasn't a familiar created to torment Madoka, she may be key to persuading RibbonHomu to not go apeshit and try to kill everyone.
>>22905926This would be terrible. Then I'd have a lot less reasons to complain about how much I hate drawing breasts because they're difficult.
We might want to think of a way to talk ribbonhomu down. Wanting to save them all is well and good, but if things go south and she starts gunning down fragments, we'll have even less than we started with. I'm kind of worried that escaping with only one or two fragments will give us braindamage homu.
>>22905986I figure it's probably safe to assume that Madoka is just a figment of the barrier. Madoka as Homura remembers her.
>>22905542[x]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.We are also bringing Mirai Wakaba back with us.
>>22906082You can draw breast on Little Pete.
How many homus are there?THERE ARE 4 HOMUS
We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.Midori better get her hugs and soul gem licking tongue ready
Anyone know why magicalgirlnoir.com no longer updates?
>>22906130Speaking of Tiny Pete, I dug up an old sketch and started working on it again. I figure I'll have this finished sometime next week.
>[X]We're finding all of them, including the crazy one.BALLS DEEP MEGUCAS BALLS DEEP
>>22906207I think it looks great.Though I feel that it might look better if Chiaki's arm looks like the one on the left in this picture.The more casual angle brofist
Have we got to the point where homu is destroying the universe yet? I'm really looking forward to that.
>>22906260I can try to do that, definitely. Her arm is still mostly sketch so it shouldn't be too difficult, I hope.
>>22906111There's also the question of what each of these fragments would contribute to the reconstitution of Chiaki. Memories? Personality changes? Nobody knows, or claims to know.Malal hasn't explained how she knows all of this either, or what she has to gain from the merging of the Homus. We've trusted her because we really don't have any choice, but she may still have potentially ominous ulterior motives.
>>22906289I mention it only because her arm strangely seemed a little too straight (To my eye, at least).Can't wait to see the finished picture!
>>22906322...It's Pinky under that helmet, isn't it?
>>22906346Don't be silly. It's Homura.
>>22906346I still say it's Nyarlko, for what it's worth.
>>22905599 >>22905614 >>22905986You didn't even need to think about it. You're going to find the last one and bring her back along with the other three, no mater where it takes. Sure, it's a safe bet, but...without every single one, it just won't be your sempai, anymore. All her parts need to be there, even the ones that make you want to slap her sometimes."You...you're not really smart, are you?" Malal says after a moment, but the smile is evident in her words, even as the ruined vox of her skulled helm steals all warmth from her voice. "Then again, we're not meant to be smart, aides like us. We're supposed to be there for them when they need us the most. Smarts never really figure into it." She looks down at the hat in her gloved hands, turning it around. "We're not supposed to abandon them even when common sense tells us to. It's just that simple."She turns back to you in a slow nod. "We'll set out as soon as the rain stops. I know where the last one is." The Culexus glances at the broken fragment standing guard at the entrance of the ramen restaurant. "If my suspicions are correct, we'll have a horde waiting for us. It's a good thing you managed to calm that one down enough to see reason - she'll be key in getting us a clear shot at the fourth without too many casualties."A horde...? She means familiars, right?"...Maybe. Who knows." A chuckling sound, rasping and bitter, erupts from the depth of her helmet. "It's going to be a bloodbath, but maybe you'll get the good ending you want."How do you respond? The rain seems to be ebbing for now, but it'll be a while until you can go. You can ask a few more questions, or try and get some rest before you set out.Ask about something else.Rest. Get as much as you can. You'll need it.
>>22906404>[x]Rest. Get as much as you can. You'll need it.We know what we need to do, rest is more important than talking.
>>22906404[x]Ask about something else."Miss Malal, have we...met somewhere before?"
>>22906466If this is in the vein of Midori coming to the realisation based off Malal's scream, that Malal might be a Homu, yes.
>>22906404[x]Ask about something else."Miss Malal, please be honest with me. How is Mirai's Soulgem?"
>>22906404>[x]Ask about something else.How can we get the fourth fragment to merge with the others if she doesn't want to co-operate? Do we just knock her out and have the other three pick up the slack, or something?Also, would it be a good idea to convince the three fragments that merging together would be the best idea here before we set out for the fourth fragment? If worse comes to worse, we may have to make do with a 75% clear.
>>22906504>>22906506These intrigue me. Let's do these.
Are we just going for as many death-flags as is physically possible?
>>22906554What else are we going to do?Once you've raised enough of them you may as well try to shoot the moon.
>>22906554Eventually hey will cancel themselves out.
>>22906554Disregard deathflagsacquire Homu.
>>22906554We've got so many, the only way forward is to collect even more, cause a stack overflow and come back on the otherside.
>>22906594Then[x]GIVE ME YOUR FACE
>>22906466I like this, but I would also like to ask Malal about, well, how she got here. Mirai is fairly obvious, but Malal is still a mystery. Also, thank her for her help and ask her why she's going through all this trouble for Murderface, that she would stand up to Kharn on her behalf. I mean, we know why Midori is doing all this, but what spurred Malal into action anyway?
>>22906404Horde? Why would RibbonHomura have a horde?Perhaps, the reasion why RibbonHomura is insane is because she is the one that is becoming Homulilly. And Homulilly familiars are like Walpurgisnacht's however Homulilly's have ghostly versions of their witches. >[x]Ask about something else."Do you know anything about the Blessed Lady? The girl called Madoka Kaname?"
>>22906554the idea is that if we trigger every death flag, all the different deaths will bicker with each other over exactly WHICH gets to kill us, and we nip out the back while they're occupied.
Quick, somebody mention that Midori was only a few weeks from retirement!
>>22906716Nah, shes only a few days away from a formal Promotion to Warmaster's Aide.
>>22906742She's going to propose to Senpai when she makes it out of this.
>>22906742Oh no, that means she was only a day away from being put in a bullet-proof glass box all aides are placed in the day before their promotion!
>>22906678so we're pulling a hellraiser?
[X]Ask about something else.Can we avoid the horde? Distract it? Deceive it? Misdirect it? Turn the elements or the ever-shaping nature of the barrier against it? If all this fragment knows is violence, I don't think more violence is going to make it less crazy.
>>22906810Seconding this.The less fighting we have to do, the better our chances of clearing this with everyone alive.
>>22906506And how can we bring her back with us
>>22906792Pretty much, yeah sounds about right.
>>22906810>>22906903This. Actually fighting the fragment -- let alone a horde -- is not what we want to do if we can help it. We've only survived this long by being a complete OCP to all the powerful entities we've faced (Madoka: hug+acceptance, Armordoka: hug+hope, Kharn: slap+guilt).Murderous!Homu's expecting -- and gunning for -- a head-on confrontation. We, therefore, should be gunning for something else. If at all possible, we need to make her play *our* game. Calvinball?>>22907303>actually putting an email address in the email fieldI, uh. I hope you weren't too attached to that e-mail account. This quest gets reliably publicly archived, you know.
>>22906506>>22906466The question seems to fall on deaf ears as the Culexus continues to examine the hat in her hands, gloved fingertips tracing the gold-thread braid at the rim. As if trying to memorize the entire thing down to its tiniest detail by mere touch alone, for fear of forgetting them once she'd let go of it.You make to ask the question again, but she replies before you could speak."Once." Malal replies, not looking up from the hat. The confirmation making your heart skip a single beat. You keep quiet, hoping that your silence would be enough of a request for her to continue.The contemplative Culexus seems to catch on easily enough. "I wouldn't call it much of a meeting, anyway. But I was there, along with Kharn and Murderface. I was treating them to some after-work ramen. We were all sitting here, at the counter." She taps a gloved hand on the wooden countertop. "You were helping your father with the tail end of his shift. Kharn was making a racket, as usual, and Murderface was keeping to herself." Another chuckling sound. "You couldn't keep your eyes off of her no matter what you tried. Your father had to pull you to the side to talk to you, get you to focus."...Well, you remember that, but...you don't exactly remember seeing her..."Don't feel bad. That happens whenever you meet a Culexus the first time. Sometimes your mind glosses over it, erasing us from the background. Not your fault, and certainly not intentional on our end. It's just one of those things." She shrugs. "Never met you after that."...Right. And what about Mirai? What about her Soul Gem?[1/2]
>>22907462>Love at first sightHGNNNGH
>>22907487Why can't I hold all these deathflags!?
>>22907524Why would want to hold on to them?
>>22907462"She showed it to you, didn't she? That should be enough. Any way, it's not my place to talk about it." A seemingly uncomfortable clearing of the throat. "If you want to get her out of this too, then you've got your work cut out for you. All I'm hoping for is getting those two idiots out of here before too long." Malal shakes her head. "Being in a barrier for far too long tends to do nasty things to your perception."She turns away from you, placing the hat back on the counter, and resumes her repairs on her suit.It seems like it's time to leave the Culexus alone. You do so, questions still unanswered, but nonetheless unforgotten. You make your way quietly back to the three sleeping girls - Mirai now all but curled around the fragment that most closely resembled your sempai, one arm resting across Chiaki's waist in an almost possessive hug. Homura is hugging Chiaki's arm to her, seemingly for warmth, face buried in the other girl's shoulder.It's almost cute, if you try to forget about the current circumstances.You sink down into a nearby chair, leaning your tired frame against the back rest. You might as well get as much rest as you can, and something tells you that this could be the last chance to do so.It's fine, you think to yourself. Just as long as you can save everyone. You won't mind.Magical Midori will save the day no matter what it takes.[2/3]
I deleted the post...new to this place so didn't know.
>>22907422Um.....What would be the best thing to use against RibbonHomura?
>>22907679>Magical Midori will save the day no matter what it takes.Well, we're fucked.
>>22907679>no matter what it takesOk im honestly going to be surprised if we survive this.
We may be going out, but we will go out in a blaze of glory.And everyone else can look back at how badass we died and say, "Damn."
>>22907679Even in her own barrier, Chiaki gets covered in bitches.
>>22907679>Magical Midori will save the day no matter what it takes.Just hope my roommate isn't around when I have to cry like a bitch.
>>22907679>Magical Midori will save the day no matter what it takes.All these deathflags.Midoriiiin
>>22907679. . .You wake up without any memory of falling asleep - and strangely enough, you're moving. Or rather, being carried by someone moving. Someone who smells faintly of whisky, and fire, and hate, and blood.You open your eyes after rubbing out the grit that had gathered in the corners, and manage to get your bearings after a few moments.You're...being carried by Chiaki. While you were sleeping, she'd picked you up and hauled you onto her back, piggyback style. Even when you were a couple of inches taller than her, and...well, just a bit heavier (although you'll be quick to correct anyone who implies anything bad that it's just because you've a healthier diet than cigarettes and whisky).The restaurant seems to have been left far, far behind you. You seem to also be heading towards the outskirts of the city, from the looks of things. Your hastily-assembled party traversing the empty highway on foot, with you at the center. The armored fragment is at point, each footstep clanking heavy with armor. Malal and Mirai on either side of you, the former twirling a crowbar absent-mindedly with one hand, the other resting her silver broadsword on her shoulder. Homura, grasping a shotgun, is bringing up the rear, and she brightens up considerably as she notices you looking at her."A-ah, you're awake, Midori-san," She chimes. "We...we set off while you were still asleep. The rain had already stopped, but we couldn't wake you up then, so we decided to go ahead. We didn't want to leave you behind, though, so...um...." She gestures with a free hand towards you, cheeks reddening."Kinda heavy," You hear Chiaki grunt. "Maybe cut back on the instant ramen a bit, eh, Midori-chan?"How do you react?
>>22907754> You will never have a cute aide who would dive into Hell and sacrifice her life to save you.
>>22907791Be incredibly embarrassed, then offended at the accusation that we'd ever stoop to the level of eating instant ramen.
>>22907791"Instant ramen is an abomination unto all that cook noodles, sempai."
>>22907791Jump off Chiaki's back like its a bed of hot coals, blushing furiously.Stammer out that Midori isn't fat! Shes just... she just better endowed!Then slap hand over mouth
>>22907791 "...Well I am awake now."You know, I think its time to summon tiny Pete. He will be a good fighter without risking the fragment. We might not get another chance to summon him.
>>22907835Agree on this, Thoough you are a magical girl you were originally a Ramen Girl and have some standards!
>>22907791Pointedly try to suppress brief flash of cold rage at the notion of touching instant ramen. Punch Chiaki in arm.Ask Malal what the plan is for dealing with the Fourth Fragment. Also inquire if there's any way to circumvent, avoid, or possibly subvert the hordes.
>>22907838All the spaghetti
>>22907791This >>22907835Then ask Mala if there's a way to get around the hordes instead of fighting them.
>>22907855If we get attacked and there's no way through the horde.
>>22907855No.More important than a fighter, he is the transport vessel to bring in that weak ass faggot here when we find Kharn.Hes the only one who can calm her down and agree to come with us.
>>22907791 Cop a feel.Shes not gonna remember this anyway.
>>22907955If Souji can't and/or won't go inside the barrier, Big Pete may also be a convenient way to transport people to and from the barrier. If the wrist transponder gets broken, it might be possible for two or three people to pilot Big Pete and transport with him.
>>22908137That's why I think we need to summon Tiny Pete now
>>22908137I feel that bringing Souji will make it all the more real for Kharn and what she is going to do, so make him be a man and take his women.even though we all know who wears the pants in this relationship but regardless, no pink haired 3rd dimensional bitch messes with what's his.
>>22908159We don't even know if the teleporter has a recharge required between jumps.I say we wait until we need him.It'll not do to get Souji killed before we meet kharn.We should, however, tell him to grab an empty water bottle and standby inside Pete
>>22908190...why a bottle?
>>22908243Faggot is not getting our of Pete's backside to pee.
>>22908275respect the nerd, dude.He may be a dick but he cares!
>>22907838I am in full agreement with this.
What kind of illusion can we use to throw off a horde?
>>22908537The illusion of competence?
>>22908537a plump, imbrobably busty anime schoolgirl
>>22907835 >>22907838You find yourself paling at your sempai's words, and it's with your cheeks positively burning that you all but hop off her back, nearly stumbling in the process of getting your legs back underneath you. S-she should be ashamed, you blurt out in an embarrassed stammer. You've never touched the stuff, and you will never as long as you live! Besides, you're not heavier, you're just more well-endowed--You manage to slap a hand over your mouth moments before you could say anything more humiliating. The party, as it is, had already stopped in its tracks, with Malal looking on in quiet silence, and Mirai hiding a smile behind a gloved hand. Even the armored fragment was smiling, showing too many teeth in a scarred grin that almost looks cute. "No argument about that," Chiaki chuckles. "Checked it myself, after all. I hope you didn't mind. You were sleeping then, and I was curious." ...Wait, what? She checked...?She nods. "Well, the me before did. At the base. After Mirai. Our room." She pauses for a moment, grinning. "Just like Mami-san, right?" She turns towards the armored fragment, who nods."Bigger," She lets out in a rumbling avalanche of syllables. "Softer."Despite your mounting embarrassment, you manage - just barely - to ask Chiaki about her remembering. When you came upon her at the restaurant, she barely remembered you, didn't she...?"Things are starting to trickle in, I think. Some are coming up. Like how you remember dreams. Pieces, all of 'em jumbled up." The girl you consider your sempai smiles again, awkward this time. "I think I might've been a bit too harsh to you, back then. I'm sorry. I think I'm still...hung up on Iori at that point."It's then that you feel a tug on your sleeve. You turn, and look at a nearly tearful Homura."M-Midori-san? Do I...do I really turn out to be that much of a pervert...?"How do you respond?
>>22908537The illusion of a summoned army of days old, charging down towards the familiars? When the familiars are busy charging towards the army, we will sneak around.

>>22908612"I'm sorry I think you were always like this.
>>22908612"w...Uh .... Maybe?I mean... I've only seen her read a single H-comic, but thats more due to the subject material than anything and at least she doesn't know about the anim- LETS GET GOING"
>>22908612"She's not that bad just... uninhibited. If you don't like the sound of pervert, maybe... so full of love she can't help but get some on others?"
>>22908612>bigger and softer than MamiWe must compare. For accuracy."I don't think so? I mean, there was only the one doujin, but you did seem to like it a little, and I never checked your room..."

>>22908612"Well, one day, you woke up and there were a lot of voices in your head telling you to do Fun Things."
Dammit Decu, why must you be so dedicated? Here I thought I'd have plenty of time this week to do other things because of your computer troubles, and wouldn't you know it I pop on for a quick check before bed to find a new MGNQ thread anyway.Now I'll have to catch up in the archives tomorrow during class. Thanks a lot.
>>22909079Just once, I'd like to see those options actually give nothing but tears and frustration.Anons choose them for HUEHUEHUE, but get nothing but a punch to the gut and a knee to the teeth.No laughs, no lolz, just a senseless, meaningless, quick and undramatic death.
>>22909112Fuck your sleep.Stay for the HHNNGHSleep when you usually do. During lectures and tests.
>>22909112Stay with us. You can help Midori carry her death flags.
>>22909170I somehow doubt we will get to it tonight. I have all the tearful music prepared too.
>>22909170>>22909185She better not die. I would rather have Mami die.
>>22909390So would I anon. So would I. I will remain faithful to the watermelon end and go down with this boat.
>>22909442At least I have one on my side. Doesn't make this any easier.
>>22908666A...a pervert? N-no, not a pervert. Just...honest, you manage to reassure the distraught fragment of your sempai's shattered psyche. Someone honest and not that all concerned about what people may think of her. Yes. That's it.Besides, you've only seen her read a single book of debatable repute, but that's more due to the subject material than anything. A-and at least she doesn't know about the anime, right...?"A-anime...?" Homura looks up at you tearfully. "What anime...?"LET'S GET GOING! YES. You need to get going. Fourth fragment and all that. You shouldn't be dilly-dallying like this!"We know," Chiaki chuckles again as the party once more continues on its way, with you and your sempai at the center of the loose formation. "Um. Well. We may be a bit angry and disappointed at you, but it's more flattering than anything. Just don't bring up when we're drinking." She pauses. "Oh, and probably stop us from drinking so much, too."You'll...you'll try your best. Yes."Thanks." The smile, again, and you can't help but...want so badly to take this particular fragment home with you. Somehow. Wishing that she'd stay like this when you finally get her out of here. "You're...someone special, Midori. Please stay with us until the end."She didn't even have to ask.[1/2]
>watch Vividred Operation episode 4>Vividyellow is totally Mamiguys for srs you should watch itsome great butts in it too
>>22909494I just can't past how cliche it is. It is like someone decided to turn the dial to 20.
>>22909491>You're...someone special, Midori. Please stay with us until the end.">She didn't even have to ask.
>>22909491>Please stay with us to the end.It is Ok, Sempai. I will always watch over you from the sky. Madoka Nebular will keep me company.
>>22909491The skies above you turn darker as you and your group finally make your way out of Mitakihara. The road ends and turns into what looks like a well-beaten path, up to a grassy hill - and the moment you take the first step into the path that all sound seems to disappear. A funereal silence blanketing everything, muffling it.You look forward and see the graves in the horizon. Jutting out of the grassy ground like broken teeth. Some of them shattered, some of them rendered unrecognizable by weather and time, others seemingly just erected moments before. Beyond them lie actual mausoleums, housed graves, clustered around each other like low-income housing. You were walking into a graveyard. A veritable city of the dead."Well, if this isn't dramatic." Malal grunts. "She's close. Stay alert, everyone, and look out for--"The roar of chainaxe motors cuts her off, the mechanical growl making every one in your group reach for their weapons. You found your hand straying to the Teleport Beacon on your wrist, thumb nearly pressing down on the button that would summon a spiked giant with a really big hammer."Idiot's still here," The Culexus grumbles underneath her breath, as the roar idles into silence. "No one attack her when you see her. She's mine.""No," The armored berserker growls in reply. "Mine.""Don't you be an idiot, too," Malal snaps back. "You've got the rest to worry about. Everyone else protects Midori until we can take the last one down."How do you react?
>>22909491MIDORI! Lickt the soul gems of all Homus, then stick them together!
>>22909561Souji?Be a dear and get in Little Pete.
>>22909561"You're both being idiots."Bring the watch up and press the communicator."Souji. Get in here with Tiny Pete and knock some sense into your girlfriend. We don't have time for her bullshit."
>>22909570I am amazed at the image I am seeing
>>22909614I would say 'be ready' to knock some sense into her. Other than that, yes.
>>22909576Time for him to pull his weight and we need more Tiny Pete time anyway
>>22909576>>22909597>>22909614Oh. And if you, you know, actually have a ring stashed somewhere. NOW would be a good time to go get it.
I feel like Souji being here is a really bad idea.
>>22909561Stay calm. Tell everyone not to be rash. If Kharn shows up ask her if she's thought about what we said.But first, put on Kharn's hat.>>22909535I know, it's awesome!
>>22909637This ring idea, she is a good idea. I'm not sure it's a GOOD idea to summon Souji, but at very least giving him a call and discussing a plan might be a good idea.
>>22909661Call Souji, ask PLAN, try to avoid Souji summoning.
>>22909661But we need the reunion of the nerd, the crazy leader and the collected skull aide or else it won't be interesting
>>22909561>>22909661Can a regular person be safely exposed to a witch's barrier? I thought those types of things were fairly harmful or had debilitating effects to non-meguca. But at any rate, prepping to summon Tiny Pete might be prudent. Souji may be able to speak through Pete.
>>22909702Not like this is the first time Souji has entered a barrier.Perhaps it'll bleach his pubics this time. IF he had any.
>>22909561Perhaps we should scout the place out first? Kharn's chainaxes may be here, but there's no telling if she's fighting with the fourth fragment, or if RibbonHomu is holding it over Kharn's prone form.
>>22909637I am for this.
>>22909576>Souji? Get in Little Pete.This. Malal and Souji have to handle the Betrayer. If there ever was a time to fight for true love, its now.
>>22909651Souji did say that he and Kharne had already talked about this very scenario already, and that he would be putting her down. Maybe he'll want to reconsider?
I am for scouting first.
>>22909637To be honest, Ring thing is a little...I don't know what to say exactly but I can't imagine Souji pulling something like that. not to mention they are already engaged
>>22909858That means he probably has a ring stashed away somewhere.That he might have planned to show her when he finally found a cure.
>>22909561I'm with the others on getting on the call with Souji and figuring out a plan.The "tell him you're choosing a worthless death inside a Witch Barrier over their love" tactic only works once, after all.
>>22910000Has a point...maybe we will use that as a trump card but tell him to gear up incase of such an event
Deculture summoning time?
>>22910892Ni Hao Nyan
>>22909576 >>22909637 >>22909661You shake your head at this, before calling Souji up once more with the Teleport Beacon. Trying your best to keep your voice in a reasonable level as your ragtag party continues to venture deeper into a mass graveyard. The air so thick with the promise of an abrupt, violent death that you couldn't help but hold your breath."Midori? What's going on?" Souji's voice is nearly unintelligible from the static rasping all coherence from his words, but you manage to understand him all the same. "Do you need Tiny Pete now? He's been ready three hours ago. Set for maximum fear and awe. Misaka's spent the entire morning fitting him with this huge autocannon--"Right, well, that's good to know. That's very good. And you'll be sending for him soon enough. But you may be facing Kharn again, and you're not sure how to get to her this time. You doubt a couple of slaps and some harshly-worded advice will work a second time."...No, it won't. If I know Kharn, she'll be smarting right now, and she'll want to get back at you the one way she knows how. Pride thing." A sigh. "You want me to get in there with you, right? I can...I can do that, sure. Tiny Pete can take one passenger. His controls aren't too complicated, actually, even Misaka could--"He's babbling. You cut him off before he could go on. "S-sorry. Yeah. Um. Right. I can do that."He does realize, though, what happens to normal people when they're stuck inside a Nightmare? [1/2]
I am happy, /tg/, that we managed the whole summoning spell without screw up.A few months ago, we would have fighters trying to cast summoning spells.
>>22910982Sometimes I wonder if Deculture is waiting for us top finish casting the summon before posting.Or we are frighteningly good at summoning.Just 1 min apart.
>>22910980"I do. That doesn't matter." He chuckles, lamely. "I shouldn't have bought into that sacrificial bullshit Kharn fed me. She's getting out of there even if it kills me." A moment. "We're getting married right away if we survive this. I don't care what she says.""When, not if." Malal barks, amusement clear in her vox-ravaged voice. "Idiot.""I heard that." Souji laughs. "A-anyway. Er. Anything else you want, Midori? I could--" It's then that his words seem to cut short. "...Holy shit, where the fuck are you? You've just disappeared off the radar. The beacon's active, but it's telling me that you're dead. Gone. Wiped off the face of--"If he's trying to scare you, then he's not doing a very good job of it."N-no, I'm not! Christ, I'm not--"You tell him to just get ready as soon as you need him. You kill the connection, and you turn to see Malal nodding at you, seemingly impressed."He'll be handy once we're in the thick of it," The Culexus replies. "Summon whatever Tiny Pete is, get him to grab Kharn and then port out of this mess. That leaves us with one less idiot to worry about."That's the plan, you reply, before transforming again in a brief flash of light. Your costume once more replacing your clothes, falling into place. The arm dagger resting heavily on your arm in its leather housing, its blade snapping out when you make a fist with your hand.You've just had quite enough of this place, you grumble.You want things back the way they were. [2/3]
>>22911025>The beacon's active, but it's telling me that you're dead. Gone. Wiped off the face of--"DECU PLSPLS DECU
>>22911025Oh, Souji, not you too.
>>22911025Shit, what are we going to do with all these death flags.No seriously, they're taking up a lot of space.Should w put them in a closet or something? Maybe make them into a tasteful collage?
>>22911174Well, we are technically dead now. We can chuck some of the flags.
>>22911025The path leads you into a clearing. A wide clearing, almost arena-like, surrounded by a ring of prominent black gravestones. Twenty of them, each marked with a roman numeral in golden lettering. No names, just numbers.And in front of those gravestones - Magical Girls. But silhouettes of them, completely black, from their faces to their clothes. Shadows transposed into reality. Each one of them grasping a golden weapon, the only offset to their forms. One of them, seemingly wearing something with too many frills, holds two golden scythes in both hands. The shadow next to her holding two golden revolvers. Another, a tall, well-armored form, is holding a large golden hammer, easily bigger than Tiny Pete's. A pair of massive gauntlets. A katana. A broadsword.And at the very center of it - at the very center of the clearing - stands your sempai, but as you've never seen her before.A flawless costume, untouched by dirt or grime, nor sporting the usual bloodstains you sometimes had to point out to your sempai or else she wouldn't even notice them. Skin smooth and perfect, unscarred, unmarked by injury or abuse. Eyes devoid of corruption, a cool clean purple, hard as shards of amethyst. Black hair, long and straight, spreading out behind her like two backswept raven wings, in subdued mimicry of...well, her real wings. Angel's wings. With golden feathers that shone with such ferocity that they were almost blinding.And her shield. Unscarred, whole. And also made with the same gold that armed the shadows around you, that sprouted from her back in two massive feathered projections.The crimson ribbon in her hair keeping her bangs out of her eyes.[3/4]
>>22911213Kharn is...well, Kharn is there, too. But as a ruined, bleeding thing. Facedown in the dirt, in a rapidly-expanding pool of her own blood. Her chainaxes on either side of her, inactive, dead. Her severed arm - torn directly from the shoulder - is still holding onto Gorefather, the black fleshmetal fingers still locked around the handle."Kharn." Malal whispers through her ruined vox. "You fucking idiot.""She's still alive, but not for long." The fourth fragment says, her voice barely above a murmur, but still managing to carry. "She tried to live up to her name one last time. Useless thing." A ripple of movement courses through the three fragments, as if in sympathy. The armored one narrows her eyes, a leopard-wet growl rumbling in her throat."Thank you for bringing them all here, Midori." It's then that Chiaki - no, Akemi Homura - gives you a smile - a cold smile, a murderer's smile. One that never even reached her eyes. "It makes it easier to dispose of them, this way. I apologize if I had to make you go through the trouble of herding them all into one place."How do you respond?
>>22911231"W-What? What do you mean?">Cry

If there is anything I have learned in my travels across the barriers, it is that many things may change the nature of a magical girl. Whether regret, or love, or revenge, or fear - whatever you believe can change the nature of a man, can. I’ve seen belief move agencies, make magical girls stave off death, and turn an insane-with-grief fragment's heart half-circle. This entire barrier has been constructed from belief. Belief damned a girl, whose heart clung to the hope that another loved her when she departed for the stars. Once, it made a girl seek godhood and achieve it. And it has made a posturing fragment think it is something more than a part of sempai.
>>22911316I support this.We are the big sister figure to Madoka. We befriended her for a reason.
>>22911231"Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?"SLAP TELEPORT
>>22911231"...Sooo, what part of Sempai are you supposed to represent? Self loathing or suicidal tendencies?"
>>22911268I actually like this. It feels right, and it shows just how much murderface has rubbed off on Midori. Green Greens is going to die no matter what at this point, so we might as well trip the mother of all death flags. Show genuine character growth from mediocre meguca with a fangirl obsession to somebody who can stand on equal footing with the object of said obsession.Midori has to die at that point, because there's nowhere else for her character to grow
>>22911337...what?>>22911316Best plan so far.
>>22911336Madoka-chan? Do you remember the red ribbon?
>>22911357Retirement is still left! ...Right?Right?
>>22911231We need Madoka and we need Tiny Pete and we need all of the guns.FUCK THE POLICE! BLESSED LADY PROTECTS!

>>22911316That's true; we befriended her, maybe now is the time to bring her in.I just hope she is on our side for this fight.
>>22911337As much as I hate this plan, i can't help but approve of it.
>>22911231Yell "form Voltron"
>>22911396RetardeseThe ultimate quirp to get baddies to stop and what.
>>22911392I support this with calling Madoka.
All the comments about calling Madoka and retardese made me think of this:Madoka, your magical girl came to my yard and kicked my sempai!
>>22911213>>22911231[x] "Why are you so hellbent about killing them? And what about Madoka..? She`s in here, too. Two of her. "
We need to summon Tiny pete like right now. Ribbonhomura will she will be taken off guard when he comes and we need to build up momentium and quickly.
The syringe is keyAnd probably multiple jumps and time freezes.
I feel like it should be said that we still ought to be focusing on trying to negotiate. We also need to be in a position where we aren't going to get exploded immediately for doing so.
>>22911231"Why? What's the point?"
What though our eyes with tears be wet?The sunrise never failed us yet.The blush of dawn may yet restoreOur light and hope and joy once more.Sad soul, take comfort, nor forgetThat sunrise never failed us yet!
>>22911231[x] Try to negotiate"Why? Why all this? For what purpose? You are the original, right..Akemi Homura? It`s your fault for what happened to the Madoka-Girl, isnt it? She told me that herself.. in one of her more sane moments. Why would you go so far just to hurt her?"
>>22911268I'd go for this.
On an non-vote related topic, I wonder how this Souji version of Accelerator will deal with watching someone he loves bleeding out in Russia when he doesn't have reality-fucking powers to rely on.Probably just as well as when he did. Which was very badly.
>>22911268If that doesn't win, "I am Hanegawa Midori, and I'm going to get you your happy ending whether you like it or not."
>>22911811Sufficiently bad ass, but not enough negotiation involved.
>>22911811I endorse this statement particularly.
>>22911811>>22911268Those are pretty much the most retarded votes so far and I get the felling that some Chuckle-HUEHUEs just want us to BAD END pretty hard.They are.. like.. DURR LETS TAKE KHARNS HAT AND WEAR IT OURSELVES- levels of bad.
>>22911806>sad in RussiaProblems solves self!
>>22911705Can we negotiate while mentally screaming for Madoka to come here and try to talk this Homura down?
>>22911863Hey.Hey, buddy.Just because you don't agree with it doesn't mean the voter is out to ruin your fun.It's not your story, you don't own it. You're a shareholder. You get to move your share your way, I get to move my share my way. Company goes where the money goes.
>>22911806>>22911885>Sad in Russia>Secret State Police storms your house for not maintaining the mandatory levels of happiness>"Try to be sad in a Gulag now, dissident scum."Such is live in sowjet russia.
>>22911948>>22911948>Just because you don't agree with it doesn't mean the voter is out to ruin your fun.You are completly right, it doesn`t mean that some voter is out there to ruin MY fun. He is out there to ruin EVERYONES fun. I fail to see how any of the respones fit even remotely to Midoris Character and and also fail to see anything else than trying to get BadEnd`ed pretty hard to ruin fun for everyone.So there you go, buddy.
>>22911996I agree that 'Get fucked' is pretty out of character, but 'I'm going to give you your happy ending whether you like it or not' seems reasonably in-character for Midori trying to act pluckier and less terrified than she is.
>>22911996Haaaaaave fun with that.
>>22911996>if I'm not having fun then EVERYONE isn't having funJawohl, mein gigglefuhrer.
>>22911996Are we doing this? Is this happening?>I don't see how [stoic determination in the face of seemingly suicidal odds] fits Midori's character.Putting aside that time she slapped Kharn the Betrayer in full on murder mode, or when she held on to Chiaki during a Flesh of Fallen Angels episode (while getting carved up for her trouble).While we're at it, out to ruin "everyone's" fun. Responses. Midori's character, with a lower-case C. No need for a `, or even a ', for that matter, in "BadEnded," which should probably be two words. You fail to see many things. In light of that, let me clear something up: I cast the vote for saying "you're getting a happy ending whether you like it or not," and I didn't cast it with the intent to ruin MGNQ or everyone's fun. I cast it because I felt it was in Midori's character, appropriate to the moment, appropriate to the setting, appropriate to the story. Many people, many shares, many directions. It's a big boardroom.Oh, and you get the "feeling," not the felling. Jesus.
>>22911996As someone who hasn't voted yet, I would like you to think of it this way, and keep "And Miracle Midori doesn't back down." in mind.Midori loves Homura. Even though she knows she can and will never, ever have her love returns. Right now, she is facing Homuras darkest parts, and has already tripped ALL of the death flags. Right now, Miracle Midori needs to fucking shine as brightly as possible, because otherwise, the one she cares about so much will end up completely offing herself. It's Do or Die, right now.On the subject of voting: Midori has illusion powers, yeah? Might want to start thinking about using them extremely subtly, to the point where nobody notices they are being used. Or at least, make sure RibbonHomu doesn't notice until it's too late.
>>22912076>Bitchslapping Kharn after being tired, out of fucks to give and because we habe to deal with shit just because she acted retarded again>Somehow that is supposed to be the same Situation we`re in now, so Midori should act the same.Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
>>22912139They're pretty comparable, bro. And she doesn't care NEARLY as much about saving Kharn, so I'd say it's logical to assume she's only going to be MORE retardedly steadfast now that it's her waifu.
>>22912072Look, if you're not even willing to consider the concept that your point of view is not the only one extant, then speaking to you is actually less productive than talking at my cat.At least he sometimes does something funny.
>>22912164Your post made me laugh anon.I need to use this somehow when I meet the next idiot my job requires.
>>22912139You're missing the point. You have every right to disagree with me. You could believe with all your heart the one true path through this problem is Midori taking a scrunchie out of her hair and flicking it menacingly at Ribbon Homura. You can vote for it, defend it to the last, fight tooth and nail to say your vote is the best vote ever.But the moment you start telling me I'm trying to ruin the story by voting for what I believe is best, you're just being an asshole. This is the point: We can disagree. We can disagree vehemently. That doesn't mean I'm trying to run the story into the ground. You have also missed the v key for "have." And in that context, situation is lowercase.
>>22912164I like the part where you act completly retarded and like he did miss the point while you pretty much did exactly same. Both of you suck at reading comprehension.
>>22911268 >>22911316"Get fucked." You spit into her face, and everything went to hell right then and there.No arguments. No negotiations. No speeches.None of those. She'd made her case clear enough, leaving Kharn there for you to find. For you to see. For her to die slowly, face down in the dirt, with her weapons just barely out of reach. Your sempai - your real sempai - would have killed Kharn outright. It wouldn't have been a clean death, but it was a quick one, a good one. She'd never prolong it just to make a point.You wanted to ask her why - why she needed to resort to such murder, such callous disregard for life - but the question died in your throat as you saw the utterly heartless, soulless conviction in her eyes. No spark of hope or warmth left in this fragment. Not even despair. Only a hatred, as pure and as cold as sharpened steel, honed into weaponized malice. A determination that didn't so much as burn but blazed, burning everything else in sight. No mercy. No kindness. Not even the merest illusion of her former self.This was your sempai, twisted into something...despicable. Terribly beautiful, breathtaking in her elegance and grace, but coldly inhuman. Not even the armored fragment was this much of a monster.It was here, then, mere moments after you've spat the acid-laced epithet, that the shadows moved from their graves. Each one lifting their weapons of golden murderous insanity and stepping forward, their purpose obvious.The fourth fragment simply smirking as she stepped back from Kharn - and wings flaring, turned around to leave. But not after saying something that echoed in your ears, despite how she only murmured them in a breathy whisper. Something that made the other members of your ragtag party form up around you, weapons drawn, teeth bared, each one ready to murder."Kill them," she'd said, in a voice with the patience and calmness of a saint. "Kill them all."[1/2]
>>22912263... And this is what we get thanks to all the edgy "Fuck you!"-People in this Thread. I hope you`re all happy.
>>22912343Hey, I voted for subtle-as-fuck illusioning and was hoping for a side of distracting grandstanding while doing so.If she is too busy watching us closely, she won't see the trick, you know! It's a very important part of being an Illusionist.
>>22912263You've never been in a full-out, mass engagement. The ill-fated encounter with Mirai, that was the first time you've even gotten into a firefight of that magnitude. And it was you, your sempai, and Kharn against Mirai and her familiars. Nothing compared to this in scale or in ferocity.An explosion of concussive force. The roar of the armored fragment, loud, wet, and hungry. Malal screeching from her vox-speaker as the lines of her suit glowed a flickering crimson, filling the air with a teeth-itching whine, nearly drowning out the gunfire. More roars, bestial and deep, the death-scent of the graveyard briefly muffled by the smell of wet fur, anger, and blood. Mirai and her bears, each one chained to her will, driven by her own anger. Driven by her own hate. The Teleport Beacon chiming that Tiny Pete was on his way.You would have heard all of this, if you hadn't been screaming Chiaki's name as you yourself charged forward. Towards that last piece of your fragmented sempai's psyche. Wanting no more to punch that arrogant smirk off her face, and get her to see sense, get her to see what kind of madness she herself had wrought.It's then that something smashes into your side - the crunch of your ribs all too obvious above your racing heartbeat - and you hear Homura scream your name as everything goes dark once more. Your senses leaving you - first sight, then sound, then everything else.You tried, right? You tried your best. Maybe it wasn't meant to work out. Maybe...maybe someone else will pick up where you left off. Surely they can't just leave your sempai there, can they? They can't.You feel tears pricking at your eyes, but you can't even lift your hands up to wipe them away.You can't even shout for help. For someone to help your sempai. To save her from herself.And it's then that you hear it. In the inky blackness, you hear a voice.+ Midori? +...Madoka?How do you respond?
>>22912452"Please save Chiaki-sempai. She needs to be whole again."
>>22912452This >>22912469Except 'Homura', not 'Chiaki'.
>>22912452+Madoka! Please! Please! Help me! Homura is in pain at the moment! I just want her to be whole again!+
>>22912452"We can make this right. ...You can make this right.""Help."
>>22912452"Am... am I dying?""...""I don't want to die..."
>>22912503Nigga, Miracle Midori doesn't worry about petty shit like her own well being. Not when she's got dear friends to save!
>>22912452Well, there went my hopes of Midori being smart about her Illusion magic and thus actually being useful on her own.
>>22912452"I was close...You want to save her too, don't you? Please help her."
>>22912452"Now would be a good time for a heroic entrance, Madoka-chan."
>>22912452"Please...save everyone...save Senpai..."
Uh, guys? As nice as Madoka swooping in and saving the day might be, I'm not terribly certain that calling her in is actually going to improve the situation. Sure she's been relatively friendly with Midori so far, but she’s also not particularly stable. And she is behind the whole golden weapons thing in the first place...
>>22912518And my hopes of trying to get some Info out of the last fragment. [x] Try to will yourself into opening your eyes and and least trying to get upYou are Miracle Midori, you are here to save your sempai. You can`t die until you`ve at least saved her, so don`t cry! Try to get up, for fucks sake! You can be dead all the fuck you want after we have done our job! "Its never to late to try to make things right, Madoka. Help me, so I can help Sempai help you. I don`t know what happened to you, but there must be a way to make things right! To save you, to save Mirai and to save Chiaki and Homura!"
>>22912452"Give me one of your Golden Weapons, Madoka-san. I can still save Homura from herself. "
>>22912565>>22912566Your right. >[x]Get up! Get back into the fight!
>>22912577This idea cannot possibly backfire.
>>22912452[x] Stay conscious but play dead, finally use that damn Illusion magic that was the reason Coobie even let Murderface choose to keep us with her in the first place, eh?
>>22912469>>22912486>>22912492>>22912494>>22912503>>22912525>>22912527>>22912531>>22912537>All those people just giving up after we came this farMidori was talking all about wanting to give Kharn, Mirai and Chiaki a happy and now you just lay down to die after one hit? At least first try to fucking get up again.This is Miracle fucking Midori who bitchslapped Kharn and hugged Abominations into Submission multiple times!
>>22912565>>22912566Well, we do have similar objectives. I doubt Madoka would want to see pieces of Homura offing each other.But yeah, This is not the time to let other people do our job for us. Miracle Midori will save the day!
>>22912611*a happy end
>>22912626Eh, it works either way.
>>22912611This man. This man here speaks the truth.
>>22912600+I was supposed to have given them all away by now, but your my friend Midori-chan. I will give a special one+Receive weapon 0- The fool
>>22912611>>22912614You're right, a huge melee surrounded by obscenely powerful fighters (and Homura) is exactly where we, an infiltration specialist, want to be, and are most helpful.I do admire the spirit of your thinking, but it doesn't seem very practical.
>>22912452"Just a scratch, that's all."We're a fucking Magical Girl. We're supposed to take a few hits before defeating the villain!
[x] Get up!
>>22912452"Please… help me, help her."
[x] get up you silly girl. For you love Chiaki
>>22912643This.We need to be using the confusion to our advantage. We can probably illusion ourselves into being overlooked...
>>22912642There you go.>>22912643You are wrong! It doesn`t matter if we`re dieing already, it doesn`t matter if we`re in the middle of a fucking battle, it doesn`t matter if we survive this, but we have to at least try to get up so the other fragments and our friends don`t get distracted by a dying Midori! This would be the most horrible thing to happen right now, to loose, just because we are dying! This is not an option right now!
>>22912710I'm not saying 'ask for help, and then die'. I'm saying we should focus on practical things first and foremost.Frankly I agree that we should be trying to work our illusion mojo while we call for Madoka's help, at least so we can FIND a way to be more helpful in the fight. But just going 'Ouendan! Ouendan! Ouendan!' and hoping Midori will suddenly become a combat badass isn't going to do much.I wasn't very clear, though, and that's my bad.
>>22912452+I found all the fragments. Please put homura back together. Also saving me would be nice.
>>22912651Yeah, this. Midori is a magical girl. She is a posthuman Witch-killing machine with no particular need for most of what we would consider vital organs. A couple cracked ribs shouldn’t be keeping her down. [X] Ignore Madoka. Get up. Fight on. Keep talking. Get through to her. Save her. Or die trying.
>>22912469 >>22912531 >>22912537The darkness is getting heavier, just as you feel yourself growing colder and colder by the moment. Your breath leaving your body in ever-shortening gasps. You're dying, that much is clear. But you force what is left inside of you into that one last plea for help, putting everything in that last burning, searing pulse. Hoping that Madoka would be able to hear it, wherever she was.+ PLEASE HELP ME HELP SEMPAI +And the moment you let it loose is the moment that the darkness is interrupted by a single orb of light. Warming you against the cold, banishing the inky blackness away.The orb takes a shape. Formless for a few moments, nebulous. Before solidifying into the familiar form of Kaname Madoka - her gloved fingers bloody, along with the front of her dress. But where her eyes was once a sharklike black, from pupil to sclera - they were now amber, the color of honey. A soft, saintly smile curling her lips as she carefully takes your hands and pulls you up into a sitting position."This...this is one of my good moments," She says, each word whispered but reaching your deafened ears clear as a bell. "It won't last. But we can save her. We can save everyone."It's then that she lets go of your hand to draw her own up, palm skyward. Your own crimson Soul Gem, slightly darkened, manifesting there with a small chiming sound."I'll...I'll need to borrow this for just a few seconds." You look at her, and she's crying. You briefly wonder why, before it dawns on you. And strangely enough, you don't...mind too much.It's for her, isn't it?Will it hurt?Just save her, please.
>>22913018[x]Just save her, please.

>>22913070>>22913108Its not stupid if its for our Sempai!
>>22913018[x] "I never had a chance, right..? "
Random thought: Midori becomes a golden weapon.I'll take a wild guess and say someone else thought of it.Anyways, sleep, clearly I need it.
>>22913139Midori's shattered ribs and punctured internals beg to differ.
>>22913018This is what happens when you go Full Retard, Anons.Just remember that it was you that threw away Miracle Midori's Happy Ending. Specifically>>22911268>>22911357>>22911715>>22912469>>22912486>>22912492>>22912494>>22912503>>22912525>>22912527>>22912531>>22912537>>22912665I hope you guys are happy.

>>22913018[x] Just save her, pleasedecu plspls decu
>>22913018[x]Just save her, please.Oh man, the butthurt in this thread. This will be an ending for the ages.
>>22913167>implying Miracle Midori was ever going to have a happy ending.You're adorable.
[X]Just save her, please.
>>22913238Don't blame Deculture, blame the Anons who voted against actually doing something usefull.Now, if we went Tactical Illusion mode, and still got stomped 2 seconds in, then you could blame Deculture for railroading.
>>22913167Look at this nigga, thinking sheer will and the power of love mean jack shit in MGNQ.Midori shouldn't have told the boss of this game to fuck herself, and she definitely shouldn't have run into a pack of golden murder shadows. This is not a universe where you just 'get up'.Unless you're a Homura. Which is what we're fighting. Think about that.
>>22913167I agree with you.Fucking retards and chucklefucks.
>The Last Will and Testament of Hanegawa Midori>"...and to Chiaki-sempai, I leave the full set of signed Miracle Midori doujins I had waiting in my apartment. I also leave to her the title of Green Green, the works of which she may continue or discontinue as she pleases.I'm really sorry about the anime, sempai."
>>22913268I wasn't the one thinking the sheer will and power of love thing would work, those were Anons I was pointing out with their "get fucked" votes.Now, playing to our characters strengths, on the other hand, that would at least be useful.
but its not noir if the dame doesn't die it was only a matter of time midoriiiiii ; ;
>>22913327The posts you pointed out were the ones asking Madoka for help after we got our asses thoroughly plowed, so I hope you understand my confusion here.Either way, not doing the one thing Midori was there for, that nobody else could do - that is to say, not even trying to talk her down - was undeniably retarded, yep, and we definitely should have jumped on the illusion train. Maybe this is salvageable, though.Through the flesh of fallen angels.
....Damn it...>[x]Just save her, please. Cry while doing so...
At least we have Magical Girl Valhalla to look forward to...
>>22913348I, I honestly doubt this is salvageable. I think the moment you all chose to confront the final fragment, the killer without any mercy, that it was probably sealed.Even coming in with illusion ready to go and opening up with the first shot? Might've only made the fight longer.Now, Deculture could throw us all for a loop, he could not, and well, either way is fine by me. But honestly, I think Midori was a dead girl walking when it was chosen to confront the fourth fragment.Mind you, I didn't vote, have only been reading, so this is just speculation and musing on my part.
>>22913348Eh, I started with the "Get Fucked" votes and just kept going through the ones that felt like "Lol I give up lets go full speed for the Midori Bad End without even trying to work with what we have."
>>22913327I'm still wondering about that.Much of the consensus was to slap the teleporter and perhaps mouth off to her.Where did running up to Ribbon Homura and slapping her shit physically come in?
>>22913018NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! ;_;[X]Just save her, please.Yuuki aru Chikai to Tomoni.No rules about not going out with a smile.. right, Buddy?
>>22913018>"It won't last. But we can save her. We can save everyone."Everyone includes Midori right?Right...?
>Wake up>MGNQ is runningMY DAY IS SAV->Midori dies because of retarded votes..my day is ruined. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-z7xlw5VNw&feature=relmfu
>>22913388That's a legitimate opinion, although I don't necessarily believe that 'Oh shit we can't do this, let's ask our god buddy' is a poorly-thought-out reaction.>>22913395It was the attitude we established toward the whole thing by giving Midori a...well, wildly out-of-character line to start with. Decu had to write a reason for Midori to act that violently and that was the logical extension of it.Plus, she didn't want Ribbon Homura getting to just walk away, so they'd all have to hunt her down again.
Meanwhile Decu laughs as he grows fat off our tears.
>>22913421Oh, I don't think asking Madoka was a bad idea, in of itself.I just think doing it without even trying to use our characters strengths first was absolutely terrible.
>>22913439No, man, wrong quest runner. You're thinking of Landing Gear.Deculture wouldn't do that.
>>22913421Theres angry and retard angry. Goddammit...
Mahou Shoujo can be Yuusha too ya know?http://youtu.be/ih7ksfTo4bY
>>22913460Deculture feeds off pure despair, not mere tears.
Well there is nothing we can really do about it now. We just have to see where fate takes us.
>>22913453Oh, without a doubt.
>>22913439>>22913460>>22913473Seriously, he's actually way too nice for that. Like, you just want to pat him on the head and go "It's okay, don't worry" he's so damn nice. It's almost funny really, he gets all worked up about stuff like his art or taking commissions.
Don't worry, Midori will live! In our hearts.
>>22913473Deculture desn't want to hurt us, man, but then we go and ask for it, and he just feels like he has to oblige. It's our fault, not his.
>>22913492He really IS that nice, but that's not mutually exclusive to feeding on tears. He established a setting like this, after all.Not that it's a huge leap from the source material.
Don't you know? As long as they are never forgotten, as long as at least one other person keeps their memory alive, they''re not truly dead.
Alright, I think that's enough for me D: Running a quest on a tablet isn't as easy as I thought, hahaha!Anyway, sorry for the delays, technical issues and all! I'll answer questions before I make dinner!
>>22913592Where's the goddamn Midori title card?
>>22913592I know it's not typical practice to respond directly to the readers, but could we please get a little weigh-in if only to shut the whole "YOU RUINED THIS WITH FULL RETARD" train up?
>>22913592Thanks for running, decu! And thanks for the Healing!
>>22913592GODDAMMITWHY U PROLONG SUFFERING I still love you decu, no homo but goddammit. ;_;
>>22913592You should probably just go eat now, before the angry goons besiege you with whining about midorin~Although, if you really insist on answering questions, is there a reason in particular you've never drawn midori?
>>22913592You said we were going to finish it today! Why? Why?
>>22913592Goddamnit. You just had to end it there, didn't you?
>>22913602I lost the copy I was supposed to use due to a laptop malfunction D: I'll try to make one in time for the next thread!>>22913604Well, I always go with the popular choices! D:>>22913618Ah, no, but I've always left drawing Midori to the person I based her on! :D
Huh, guess I was too late with the COURAGE BEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAMMMMU to save Midori? Shoulda found the thread sooner.
>>22913655give it to us straight [s]doc[/s] decis green end still possible ; ; was watermelon end ever possible?
>>22913683Everything is possible if you only believe!
>>22913592Whats Madoka going to do with Midori's soulgem?Is she going to put all the Homus into it?
>>22913655>Ah, no, but I've always left drawing Midori to the person I based her on! :DOh, well that's->left drawing Midori to the person I based her on>to the person I based her on>the person I based her onWait... what?
>>22913696Need session soon decu.My heart can't take this cliffhanger for too long. thanks for running on a tablet. That can be shitty
>>22913592Thanks for the thread, no one can doubt your commitment now. Typing on an ipad/phone is hard. >QuestionsWell there are two questions I can think of:1. Is Tiny Pete outclassed by golden weapon users?2. What are you going to do about your laptop? Laptops aren't known for being able to swap out malfunctioning parts.
>>22913717He sent the whole thing in for repairs.It's a matter of time and when I chatted with him, the symptoms of the laptop failure weren't consistent with HDD failure.
>>22913698Hahaha, you'll see!>>22913709I'll try and make sure the next thread is soon enough!>>22913717Tiny Pete is really strong! Even being a Golden Weapon user can't protect you from ten tons of pure awesome!Also, I just called the laptop repair people. They've fixed it, so I should be getting it back this weekend!
oh right and meta questionDid you scrounge all this writing on the tablet touchpad or did you use a bluetooth keyboard?if not the latter, it could be a nice investment if your lappy is pushin daisies.
>>22913702Apparently every character in this quest is based on someone Decu knows IRL.
Did we reach critical mass of death flags?Miiidoriiiii
>>22913734>Tiny Pete is really strong! Even being a Golden Weapon user can't protect you from ten tons of pure awesome!FUCK YEAR PETE!>>22913698Calling it for exploiting the link between Midori and Chiaki's soul gems, shoving all the despair into Midori's while shunting Midori's consciousness into Chiaki's.
>>22913767I hope that's by appearance or by horribly exaggerated personality...I don't know if I could handle misaka or kharn daily.Decu must have the patience of a saint!

Ruined by Dontes who voted for "get fucked" and got the character killed.Sorry, Decu, I don`t even feel like continuing reading this quest. I liked it very much and I like your writing but the people in this thread just managed to kill all the fun through outright stupid votes.Also:>Some anon calls out the people on voting stupid shit>NO ANON STOP ASSUMING THAT THIS IS ONLY YOUR FUN
>>22913809>Decu is Godoka
>>22913824lol stay mad buddymidori aint dead till decu says she is
>>22913809I'm pretty sure only Midori and Malal are based on real people to date.
>>22913824I really liked Midori's growth too. Personally, I'm waiting for one more thread before writing her off.The Blessed Lady protects!
>>22913844I wish I was even mad. But I´m not. Just cripplingly disappointed by my fellow MGNQ-Readers.
>>22913734Decu, while Midori is out, is Souji pulling a "... is probably what she is thinking." against RibbonHomu or is he full "BURN MAIM KILL" mode?For reference.http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Toaru_Majutsu_no_Index:NT_Volume6_Chapter6#Part_4
>>22913824I was going to actually mock you, but you're not worth the effort of selecting a picture which actually represents the disdain i have for you.Have this, instead.
>>22913740Ah, I'll keep it in mind, thank you!>>22913787I don't know about death flags, hahaha!>>22913824I'm really sorry if you feel that way. I would really like it if you stayed, but I won't insist, because you have your reasons! Please accept all my thanks for staying with me up to this point. It's because of everyone that I'm still running MGNQ.I wish we could have been together until the ending, but that's life! Good luck in whatever you do, sir/ma'am, and you have my thanks!
>>22913879Thats alright, Donte. I don`t really give a fuck.I don`t even feel like writing a witty reply to that, I just figured that you deserve to know that since you were kind enough to muster up enough motivation to tell me about your state of feelings.
>>22913892It's Noir. I expected this might happen but that doesn't mean it hurts any less. Much like how Mona died in the end, just because they're playable for their segment doesn't give them immunity throughout the entire experience. Although... If we CAN brighten up the place a bit, I'm hoping for what >>22913791 suggested.
>>22913956Why don't you just see how you feel when the next MGNQ pops up? You clearly care enough to leave this thread open even after saying you were quitting MGNQ forever. One character maybe (probably) dying should not be enough of a reason to abandon a story.Except for Death Note.
>>22913956I voted with you.I still think you're a goon.
We cant despair yet! All we gotta do is fix the Godoka, then she'll fix Midori! Easy peasy!Oh is Homura-dawg going to have triple amnesia after this?
Decided to go ahead and archive the thread but I fucked up the numbering.Sorry.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Magical%20Girl%20Noir%20Quest
>>22913892Ah, thank you. I wish you also the best. I am looking forward to your next quest. I really enjoyed this quest so far and I think that your style of writing, describing things and incorporting our often stupid decisions in a very neutral way that managed to call down both parties usully is a rare talent that you have.I think I also admire your patience with the people who read your quest and argue about the weirdest things, so.. well. I think I still want to know how things will turn out with this arc, but I just don`t feell like it since my favourite character died like that. Anyway, sorry for the tl;dr, but I just wanted to make sure that I don`t blame you or think that this quest is bad or anything.
>>22913999Hell no. She's not ALLOWED to have amnesia after all this literal ass-busting Midori's done to save her.
>>22913389But anon, it is going according to plan.
>>22914264Whose plan, I wonder?
I fall asleep after voting to use illusions and call Tiny Pete against RibbonHomu, and this is what I wake up to. Midori still had those two Grief Seeds; can't Madoka use them to shunt grief into?
>Draws half of the Midori pictures, leaves one before going to work.>Get back from work and you goons killed Midori off in the meantime>My face when my last picture of Midori when she was alive was rushed and not that good
>>22914464We don't actually know what Madoka is planning to do. But from gauging her reaction, it's likely not going to be real good for Midori's soul gem. If it is indeed some sort of grief-transfer process, then perhaps some of the other people can still save her if they remember the grief seeds that Midori was carrying, if she doesn't witch out right then and there.
>>22915096You're not alone there, I only found it AFTER Decu posted the last one before chikuwa.
Well I think this is kind of fitting after so many trials and tribulations, we have done well to survive this far and minority was originally a bad guy of the week, so she went beyond it and yes while she may die it is also noted that some people wanted more noir, and while this is bitter it kind of make sense. Though I agree going get fucked was extremely stupid but who knows there is a chance of her surviving maybe?
>>22913824This, this, this. No, I'll stick around, I think, but -- fuck, I should never have gone to sleep.Seriously. What the fuck.
But she's not dead yet. I think you guys need to calm down.
Some speculation on the despair transfer, if that is what Madoka has in mind:If Chiaki still has the link to Wally from the procedure, it may be possible for her to try to siphon off any corruption from Midori's soul gem and reroute it. If what Kharn said earlier about soul gem attunement still holds, this may not be so crazy of an option, if the merging can occur quickly enough.
