You are a Magical Girl, and you're currently looking around your new office for any surprises its previous owner may have left you. Kharn's still a friend, of course, you parted ways amicably enough when you left Siberia - but she was still, after all, Kharn. Kharn, who collected the skulls of her enemies and made a throne out of them. Kharn, who collected the underwear of every conquest she made. Someone who tore what she wanted from the corpse of life with bloody claws and a blood-pinked grin.What you're getting at, here, is that you know where this office has been, and you're just playing it safe.You want to start this Warmaster thing right, after all. The last thing you need is --"Sempai! I've...I've stumbled upon what appears to be a wall of laminated panties! ...They've even got nametags too!" God dammit, Kharn. Just...God dammit.
>>24953554It's your first day on the job. No, still not official, but you've walked around with the hat on. You've talked to a few people with the hat on. You've made things happen with the hat - things that you probably shouldn't talk about, if you wanted to avoid dealing with a stab-happy Sayaka just looking for an excuse to shove ten inches of steel through your spine. You've even managed, after a fashion, to successfully delegate a particularly touchy mission to people you think would do best in it, even if you had to cheat and ask Kyuubey for his recommendation. Slowly but surely you're acclimatizing yourself to the position of being responsible for more than a thousand Magical Girls.It's...not so bad. It's a change of pace, sure, and the fact that you now have to worry about how you look to other people is...kind of irritating to be honest (it's never been one of your priorities, to be completely honest). But it beats drinking yourself to something approximating death in a corner of your old apartment, waiting for a call or a delivered envelope to tell you who to kill. Mami's even stopped looking at you with futile desperation in her eyes, the sort where you looked at someone and had absolutely no idea what else to do with them. You're even having Ishikawa Kumatora, a girl you gave a few month's worth of basic training to (which she somehow never forgot about, even if you nearly did forget her name) help you look the entire office over for aforementioned Kharntastic surprises. This is, of course, after telling her to drop the bit about calling you Warmaster. Sempai is fine, even though technically you never did outrank her before your promotion. It's simply that you've been a Magical Girl longer.[1/2]
>>24953561The wall of panties she discovered, it seems, is hidden behind the suspicious-looking book case - the entire thing simply swiveled on a hinge like a door, revealing a large collection rack of panties sealed in sheets of thick plastic. There's an awful, awful lot of them, with small printed-out tags slipped inside, stating names, dates, places and ages. A cursory look tells you that there are more black lacy underwear than there is the innocent, childish sort. A slightly longer look tells you that some of them were collected at the same time, with different owners and in the same location.God dammit, Kharn."T-there's an awful lot...h-hey!" Kumatora looks at one particular set, a plain white one with a small strip of checkered pattern at the front, where the small pink ribbon should be. "Wendy...Cooldown, Santa Destroy, California? Oh, this must be from America..."Don't touch it, you tell her. You don't know where it's been."Oh. R-right, sempai." Kumatora squeaks, before stepping back. "Um. So...what are you going to do with them?"Leave them there. You'll keep them. Tell no one.Burn it. Burn everything.Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia. With a very angry letter.
>>24953576>[X]Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia. With a very angry letter.Keeping any of this would be the worst of ideas.
>>24953576Tempting to burn it, but just mail it to her instead. She'll have fun explaining everything to Souji, I'm certain. Wouldn't want her to get bored.
[X] Pack 'em up and send 'em to Kharn. With a very angry letter.[X] "No one shall know of this, Kumatora. Not even Kyuubey."
>>24953576>Wendy...CooldownAw shit. We're obliged to ask dreamgirl about that now.>[x]Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia. Addressed to Souji.
>>24953576Send them to Siberia, hold the angry letterTell her she should have kept better track of her trophiesAnd seriously? Even Wendy? That is surprising
>>24953576>The wall of panties she discovered, it seems, is hidden behind the suspicious-looking book case - the entire thing simply swiveled on a hinge like a door, revealing a large collection rack of panties sealed in sheets of thick plastic.Oh cool, we can hide whiskey, cigarettes and illegal firearms behind there where Midori can't ration them. Awesome.
>>24953612>Addressed to Souji.This is... I like this. Very much.
>>24953576>Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia. With a very angry letter.Welcome back Decu. Let's see how long you last with us.>Wendy's pantiesDuuuuuude.
>>24953576>Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia. With a very angry letter.It's been a while since Pinky, maybe we should chat a bit. However I have no idea what about.
>>24953624What illegal firearms could we possibly have that wouldn't be inside the shieldMaybe keeping the golden weapons in there after we suitably reinforced it would be nice though
>>24953576[x]Into the incinerator it goes.
>>24953576Keep them. Tell no one.Everyone needs a hobby....Homu.
>>24953576[x] Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia.Instead of an angry letter, simply write "Impressive"
Should we keep Wendy's panties and return them to her in person?
>>24953669if we dont keep them then we should at least do this.
>>24953576[x]Pack 'em up and send 'em to Siberia. With a very angry letter.>dat namedropartycrimsons when
>>24953669Thirding this regardless of what we do with the rest.
>>24953576Make an event with big fire and beer.Invite the officio for big pantsuburning festivity.We're going to make It memorable.And send the pictures to Kharn
>>24953612>>24953576Yessss, mail them to Souji. Two burns for the price of one.
>>24953689This is so, so tempting.
>>24953695On second thought, changing to this. That's a lot more likely to make something really funny happen, good or bad.
>>24953695Throwing my vote in for this. We need to let Souji know that not even being in another country with Warmaster duties will stop us trolling the shit out of him.
>>24953696It Is.Imagine the photo of two girls grinning to the camera, with beer in hands and pants on their heads and in the background, some of the girls are laughing and throwing Kharn's treasure into the big fire.If you look closer, you can see very flustered Mami, standing in the crowd
>>24953689While starting an annual burning pants festival might be something quite fitting we are trying to show that we aren't KharnPlus imagining Souji's face when he opens the crate would be priceless
>>24953737The party is also a great stress reliever!
>>24953695THISIT MUST BE SO
>>24953743That's why we institute a yearly MAXIMUM CHRISTMAS event with Kyouko organizing itAnd possibly other celebrations as time allows
>>24953737Personally, I'm against mailing them directly to Souji. While I don't like him much, this is just downright crass and would put Kharn in a tight spot.Better to just mail 'em to Kharn and if he finds it, then that's that.
>>24953773To add: He probably already knows anyways, making this a pointless jab anyway.
>>24953695You have my vote.
>>24953576[x]Look harder at them to make sure Mami's panties aren't among them.If they are, we're going to be very upset.
>>24953785I agree with Hat herePlus it won't be fun if we aren't there to see it
>>24953804We're the warmaster. We can afford a camera to put in the box and send us his reaction.
>>24953612They're in a relationship, there's no way Souji doesn't already know.
>>24953816Of course he knows, that's not the point.
>>24953816>>24953835I think the comprehension of just how big a collection she had will stun him
If we mail them, we should mail them to Kharn just so she has her collection back. Honestly, we don't need to be jerks.And then use the space for guns.
>>24953593 >>24953597 >>24953605 >>24953620You pull the laminated pair of panties belonging to a certain Wendy Cooldown from its peg. Well, for one thing, there's no way you're going to keep them in your office. Sure, they're pretty and everything, and they are properly catalogued - you derive the same pleasure from seeing such meticulous organization as you would seeing a complicated firearm be field-stripped to its component parts with respect, care and dignity - but they're just underwear, when all is said and done. Crass reminders and trophies of a former Warmaster's conquests. Keeping it would be something like...well, keeping someone else's trophies for your own and pretending they're yours. You're tempted to have them burned, but you just thought of something better to do with the lot.Booting up the laptop on top of the desk - Mami's attentive face filling the screen with her smile - it's then that you ask if the Officio regularly ships supplies to the R&D Base in Siberia, and when would the next shipment be sent. The blonde blinks at you in surprise, before telling you to hold on as she consults something off-screen."Oh, hmm. Apparently, the next shipment of supplies will be sent later tonight, along with some requisitioned equipment, Chiaki-san." It's then that she smiles. "Ah, are you going to send Miss Valnikov a gift or something? If so, sending it along with the supplies would be faster and more efficient than regular parcel service. Just have someone deliver it to Logistics downstairs, properly labeled, and they'll take care of the rest."Yes. Yes, that's exactly what you're going to do. You thank Mami for her help, and she shakes her head, smiling once more."It's no problem, Chiaki-san. Feel free to ask me whatever you wish. I'll do anything for you, Warmaster."She clicks off with a wink, and you close the laptop slowly with a click - feeling your cheeks positively burn at that last bit.[1/2]
>>24953875After composing yourself, you tell Kumatora to run down to Logistics and get you a few cardboard boxes - the biggest they have - along with a marker and some packing tape. You'll be packing the laminated panties away and sending them off to their rightful owner. While you do believe quite firmly in the school of thought that finders will always be keepers, this was one case where you'll make an exception."R-right away, Warmaster! I won't be a bit!" Kumatora grins, snapping a salute, before rocketing away before you could remind her to stop calling you that. And get you an ashtray, or something. ...Well, at least she's enthusiastic. That counts for something. You wonder if you were just as energetic when you were a fresh contractee.You walk back to the skull throne, sitting down carefully on the cushioned areas once more - still turning the laminated underwear of the girl haunting you in your dreams in your hands. You realize this only a moment later. Another moment, and you find yourself contemplating taking it out of the lamination.What? That's...no. That's not your thing. Panties is not your thing....It's the damn hat again, isn't it?Take it out. What's the harm? You're in your office, anyway.Take the hat off. Put the panties down. You have a call to make, remember?Just wait for Kumatora.
>>24953875>I'll do anything for you, Warmaster."We don't have the hat on, do we?
>>24953887[x] Resist urge to homu.Just wait. For god's sake.
>>24953893>>24953887>Take the hat off. Aw shit.
>>24953887>Take the hat off. Put the panties down. You have a call to make, remember?
>>24953887I suppose also make that call.But resist urge to homu most of all.
>>24953887Just wait for Kumatora.Resist the temptation to remove the panties even if there might be something cool hidden in there
>>24953554>MGNQ>On a TuesdayWHAT IS THIS SORCERY!?
>>24953900Nothing to homu about.Learn some self control and wait.
>>24953887>Take the hat off. Put the panties down. You have a call to make, remember?Though now I wonder what on earth would happen if we took them out..
>>24953887Perfect timing for Office Mami cameo, because this was meant for last thread.
>>24953917Sorcery.>>24953887We might as well call Iori and tell her when we're available. I don't actually remember when that is, but we might as well.
>>24953887Take them outLet's see what all the fuss was aboutAnd of course have something to hold over Wendy next time we see her
>>24953917Things beyond your comprehension.
>>24953935You are the coolest.
>>24953887[x]Take the hat off. Put the panties down. You have a call to make, remember?
>>24953887[x]Take the hat off, put the panties down. Consider sending the hat back to Siberia with the panties. Or maybe just burning it all together.
>>24953958No. We shall keep the hat and learn to control it.And use its powers whenever we want to.
We're not gonna call Iori!Not now at least. Not when we have a hyper kouhai whos gonna come in rushing with a large box shouting that it should fit all the laminated panties.It'll just cause more misunderstandings we don't need, now.
>>24953887>Take it out. What's the harm? You're in your office, anyway.
We'll need to call Mami again.We need movers to help shift that throne of skulls to Siberia as well.A pair of presents, one for souji, the other for Kharn.
>>24953887>Put the panties down. You have a call to make, remember?We must do it without taking off the great hat
I just want to say, since I don't twitter, so can't do it there.Cheers for making the effort to run this more often for us.Truly, Decu is a merciful overlord!
>>24953887>Just wait for Kumatora.Because >>24953980
Man, too bad I hopped into this late, I had a suggestion for the letter."Dearest Valnikov Kharn "the Betrayer," Former Warmaster of the Ninth Officio of Magical Girls,FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF,Chiaki "MurderFFFFF" Matsuda, Warmaster Presiding, Ninth OfficioP.S.: FFFF"
>>24953980This is EXACTLY why we should do that
>>24954007Just do like I do and make an account solely to get free updates whenever there's a new thread.
>>24954080We still have time to send a letter with the panties.
>not keeping the collection for blackmailing purposes.And I'm not talking about Kharn.>Nice to meet you too, Warmaster of Nin->Wait I think I know you're name. Let me check my catalogue. Oh. Were you there and there on that particular night?>Ye- Yes maybe. Why?>Chill miss, ITS NOT LIKE WERE HAVING YOUR PANTIES WITH THE EXACT DETAILS ON HOW WE GOT THEM
>>24953992Housekeeping was running about outside, right?We can flag down one of them and tell them to get folks to get it prepped for shipping to Siberia.
>>24954169This is a really good idea. Or at least, a really funny one. If only we had the names of the other Warmasters and people of note.
>>24954194I don't think we want to expose any more people to this information than necessary.>>24954197>>24954169Okay, so we catalogue and photograph them all first, as we pack them.
>>24954169TIME TO TAKE PHOTOS!
>>24954169can this pls happen?
>>24954169>Our face when Malal took advantage of Kharn's bizarre hobby and did this very thing when she was alive to further her agenda.
>>24954211Once we pack up the panties, then?We'll need room to fit in a proper chair.We also need to send it to Siberia as you just know they're gonna do it on it.And then Souji will know the meaning of hell.
>>24954169This must happen.Decu, you better be rewriting all this.We can waste another hour for something like that
>>24954228"I would expect you to be more irritated about this.""Hm? Oh, no, no. It lets me be... on top of negotiations."
>>24954169now THIS I like.
>>24954228Found my face.
>>24954228Now that I think about it, I kind of want to include a question with the letter about what she did to/in the hat.If her reply is "it's just a hat," we fly out to Siberia and punch her in the face.
>>24954279But Malal made it.She's more likely be behind some of the mischief.
>>24954279Dude, what are you talking about?It's just a hat.
>>24954169This idea is so horrible that its good. Sent away the unimportant ones and keep the ones from the Bigwigs.
>>24953887>Take the hat off. Put the panties down. You have a call to make, remember?this is a nice surprise, MGNQ after work is the best time of the day.
>>24954377But we don't know if they've stayed unimportant since Kharn conquered them.Surely, gaining Kharns interest should be a sign of impending greatness.
>>24953902 >>24953907 >>24953908 >>24953934Just a hat, he says. Nothing but a symbol of office, he says.You all but tear off the Warmaster Cap off your head, letting it drop onto the mahogany desk with a sharp clack. ...Seriously, you should get this thing looked at, somehow. It's not...making you think right. It's not making you act right, anyway. You saw what it did to Sayaka. You saw what it did to Kyoko. You even took pictures of the entire thing. It's...it's not natural, even if it does make you look completely hardcore. Even if it makes Mami look at you in that way.. . .Well, maybe it wasn't COMPLETELY useless and wrong. You pull the hat closer, hooking one cautious finger on its band and dragging it until it's right in front of you. It's...just a strange hat. Like all things, it could be controlled, somehow. Just like a gun that pulls to the left, either by accident in its make or simply a flaw in its engineering. The first few times you use it, you might end up shooting who you're not supposed to - but with diligence, you'll be hitting your mark with it with deadly accuracy. All it takes is time. Time and patience. Making up your mind with this bothersome piece of headgear, you push it aside, to your left, replacing its spot with the laminated underwear you'd taken from the rest of Kharn's...extensive collection. Wendy Cooldown. Whoever owned this little scrap of silk and cotton may be the girl from your dreams. Maybe not. But it's probably worth asking about it, the next time you meet her. And you'll be sure to do so in a manner befitting the delicacy of the situation.You smile slightly at the prospect seeing her face the moment you ask her about being fucked by someone with metal blades for hands, and a foot-long pink tentacle for a tongue.Heh. [1/2]
>>24954406...Well. No. You can't spend all day daydreaming in your office. You have a call to make. Iori needs to be told, and it should be well enough in the morning that you'd be able to call her without worrying about waking her up or something.You fish out your smartphone from your inventory, and the idol had just picked up and cheerfully greeted you good morning when Kumatora came running in, carrying a still-folded cardboard box and the supplies you asked - shouting at the top of her voice."I GOT THE BOX FOR THE PANTIES, WARMASTER-SEMPAI!" Kumatora exclaims, all fired up like some sort of shonen superhero. Loud enough that her voice echoes in the office. Loud enough that you're pretty sure Iori heard it."...Is...is this a bad time, Chiaki-san?" Iori ventures carefully after what seems like a long while. "Are you in the middle of something? Something involving panties?"How do you respond?
>>24954406>You smile slightly at the prospect seeing her face the moment you ask her about being fucked by someone with metal blades for hands, and a foot-long pink tentacle for a tongue.Heh Indeed.
>>24954279[x] Burn hat[x] Burn bed in your office[x] Call in Techpriests to remove the taint and bless the vile place where the bed stoodEven if they changed sheets and matress, there happened things on this bad that would even make Slaanesh blush like a teenage girl. The same goes for the hat. Burn it. It will never be pure again.
>>24954427"...Yes." Awkward pause. "We were going to get together for coffee. How's tomorrow?"Replace tomorrow with what-have-you, but I think either tomorrow or lunch today are the times that we have available.
>>24954427Remain deadpan calm."Just trying to cleanse my new office. After the panties go out, the exorcist comes in."
>>24954427"Relics from a bygone age. I'm sending them off to someone more able to appreciate their historical value."
>>24954427DOHOHOHOHOHOHO"Work stuff, better not asking.ANYWAY, we need to talk"
>>24954427>ignore her questionLet's go get that coffee [insert time and place].
>>24954427"I'm moving into my new office, and my predecessor had some... questionable hobbies. I'm in the process of having them removed.So, can we reschedule our coffee meeting to today? My schedule just got crazy as all hell."Polite, efficient, Plan to Kill Kumatora every time you meet.
>>24954427Removing my predecessors collection of trophies from my new officeShe apparently collected enough pairs to own an underwear warehouse
>>24954427Also, we're totally keeping the stuff for negotiations leverage.Period
>>24954427Time for deadpan."Yes, I'm throwing out used panties. From the previous owner of my new office." Without waiting for a response. "About the coffee, how does tomorrow sound?"
>>24954474Putting my vote in for this. Says pretty much everything.
>>24954427"not at all, just getting rid of something my predecessor left behind.""Kumatora, dont forget to wear gloves and get started packing those, also, you don't have to yell, I'm right here."
>>24954427"Trophies of the person that last owned this office. So how are you?"
>>24954474This and >>24954459The exorcist line is too good to miss.
>>24954427"Remember when I told you there are things about my job you`re better off not knowing? This is one of those things."
Actually, on the subject of the coffee, let's just tell her that our schedule went to shit and we'll have Mami call her to schedule. Mami, please help me sort my itinerary ohgod.
>>24954427think we should tell her about the Idol escort job, does she know her?also to avoid misunderstandings.
>>24954427"Just moving into my new office.""My predecessor left some.... interesting collections behind."
>>24954489>>24954449>>24954470We wanted to meet today - tomorrow we're pissing off to do idol duty ASAP.The sooner we get this 4-day stint out of the way, the sooner we can go smash-and-grab and blow off all that babysitting stress.
>>24954427>>24954449This, maybe minus the awkward yes and just steamrolling past the question.
>>24954528No. Officio business is Officio business and she`s an outsider.Fuck, usually not even other Meguca`s get told what Job you`re doing until its done.
>>24954547Bah. The awkward yes is all of the charm! But I do agree we should avoid the question as much as possible.Also we should probably ask about Ruri at some point, ASSUMING we can be relatively sure we won't end up completely destroying Iori somehow in the process. Who even knows with this idol chicks.
>>24954528We might actually want to save this for when we're fact to face, to help prevent more said misunderstandings.
>>24954557We need valuable intel from her.
>>24954557This is a job where knowing the world of Idols and the details of our target, er, principle will be of a great help. We don't need to tell Iori everything, but asking her questions about this person could very well improve our odds of success or keep us from falling into an obvious bad spot. It's called "Gathering intel".
>>24954575Then get the intel from her without revealing any specifics. How demented are you?
>>24954596It would be pretty handy to ferret out such details like "Ruri's gimmick is pretending to be a magical girl, some rumors say she'd do anything to be a real one. Anything."
>>24954610This.Just ask her about other idols, feigning vague interest in her line of work, and eventually steer the topic towards our target.
>>24954634This anon's got it.
>>24954406>you might end up shooting who you're not supposed toor you could just dial the sight in and zero the fucking thing properlybad analogy
>>24954596"Gathering Intel" does not involve telling her anything about our mission. You might have forgotten that, so I`ll just remind you: We do not need to tell Iori anything about the Escort-Thing just to ask her if she can tell us more about Ruri. Stop trying to get her involved.
>>24954610This is soo secret of a mission that we'll be seen by everyone that's at least 100m from Ruri at any point during the few days that we'll be guarding her.There is no point in hiding that we have a mission and need as much intel as she can give us.
>>24954427"Clearing out my predecessor's office. There's a lot to clean out. "How does today sound for that coffee?"Goddamn you guys never fail to shit things up. And tomorrow is when we have to meet with our principal for the bodyguard mission; today is better.
>>24954656There is point in hiding it before the mission actually begins.
>>24954656This guy has a good point
>>24954656>There is no point in revealing beforehand shit about our job to people who are completly uninvolved.Yep. You are definitely demented.
>>24954484You really think that it'll help in negotiations with people that want to kill us?You'll do nothing but make it more likely that they recommend our Officio's elimination. Your grasp of negotiations is beyond stupid
>>24954667No there isn't. Randomly asking about specific idols without explaining anything makes people suspicious. Suspicion makes them keep info to themselves.>>24954674And you're an idiot.
>>24954686...Why do you think everyone wants to kill us?But it's not for negotiations leverage in a traditional sense as much as it is a power play, I think, as we're introduced to other people of note. Make sure they understand we're not to be fucked with because we're new. Something like that, anyway.
>>24954687Yes there fucking is.Its our first goddamn day on the job and what do you want to do?Go blabbing classified information to people, specifically one thats not even involved in the fucking Officio. Yeah, thats going to be a GREAT start to our career as Warmaster. Getting a reputation for not knowing how to keep our fucking mouth shut will really help us out in the future.And you're a fucking moron if you think we'll just go OH HEY THURR TELL ME ABOUT THIS BITCH. Its called subtlety. We ask her about her line of work, what she thinks of her fellow idols etc until we get to Ruri.>>24954712Golden weapons bro. We have to think like a Highlander.
>>24954687How retarded are you?This is dealing with Magical Girl shit. Why the fuck would you involve people in that shit who have nothing to do with it? WHY.This does not make any sense whatsoever, other than you trying to force Iori into this shit, because, no, we can just fucking tell her nothing about the job and still ask her what we want to know.
>>24954686This isn't Shadowrun and you're trying too hard to be serious.You sound silly
>>24954731Man if they have golden weapons we should already be shooting them anyway.Although you're right about subtlety in information-gathering. We're trying to make sure Iori doens't freak out anyway, we need to not treat her like a resource even if we're going to use her like one.
>>24954642Chiaki is hired to shoot people, not to think.
>>24954769one would think that one who uses firearms would know how to operate them appropriately, if not, chiaki if the worst gun thug ever
>>24954731Are you incapable of making distinctions between important and unimportant missions? Here, I'll do it for you:Important: smash and grab. Why? We descend suddenly like a force of nature and take what we want. Key point is "suddenly" so no one can move whatever we're after or bring reinforcements.Unimportant: this escort mission. Why? We'll be seen by absolutely fucking everyone and it begins tomorrow. What's fucking classified about it?>>24954734This isn't just magical girl shit, this is dealing with her colleagues that she knows info about. Info that we need. She tells us everything we know, we part ways and do the mission.What fucking involvement are you talking about?
>>24954793Maybe she's just bad at analogies.Betcha didn't think about that huh.>>24954797A mission is a mission. A client is a client. We should keep our mouth shut about things unless people have an absolute need to know.We're goddamn professionals and we should act like it.
>>24954793Until you actually shoot a gun you can't tell if it shoots perfectly straight or notNo amount of experience will tell you "yep this thing is gonna pull to the left when I shoot it" just at a glanceAnd up until now we have been a self destruction anti social alcoholic animal that was basically given the order to kill and swept under the rug when not neededWhat part of that makes you think we weren't just a goddamned thug?
>>24954813>Maybe she's just bad at analogies.>>Betcha didn't think about that huh.uh>>24954642>bad analogytotally did
>>24954824it was a joke
>>24954731When the mission is basically "I want to be fucked by the ninth warmaster" I don't think it is that super secret that we can't let slip to someone we know in order to get some intel
>>24954820>No amount of experience will tell you "yep this thing is gonna pull to the left when I shoot it" just at a glanceum, i'm pretty sure that if a pistol is going to shoot a foot or so off target from 7 feet, i should be able to tell because the sights would have to be WAY off or damaged for that to occur, and that is very much visible, unless the barrel is a bendy straw>>24954829so is this argument that you keep dragging out
>>24954449 >>24954459 >>24954474You tell her that it's just you settling into your new office. Because of the promotion, she remembers. After the panties go out, the exorcist comes in. Probably with incense and those rice paper talismans banishing evil spirits with black metal claws and long snaking tongues."A-ah. I see. Well, um, I hope it's going smoothly, Chiaki-san. Is there anything I can do to help?"...No, it's fine. You've got all the help you need at the moment. Maybe a bit too much help, but you're certainly not lacking in that department."Mm, well, if you're sure, Chiaki-san." The uncertainty in her voice evens out, replaced by the pleased tone she'd been using earlier when she greeted you. "A-anyway, I'm just glad you called. Today's didn't start out in the best of ways, so..." Her voice trails off in silence, before she continues again, as if suddenly aware of the gap in the conversation. "...Y-yes, I mean. I'm happy to be able to hear your voice today, Chiaki-san."Is...is that so? You motion for Kumatora to settle down and keep quiet as you shift slightly upon your throne of skulls. You just called to tell her about the coffee you wanted to have with her. Is Iori not a morning person?"Oh, well, I'm alright with mornings. It's...well, I suppose it's like Chiaki-san getting a job request that she doesn't particularly enjoy?" It's here that she giggles. "I...I suppose the first time we met, it was something like that, wasn't it?"...Well, no, not entirely. You didn't hate it, it's just not something you like doing. It wasn't anything...personal.[1/2]
>>24954867"Haha. Well, I'm relieved. I think." An uncertain pause. "A-anyway, well, if you must know, Chiaki-san, I've been asked to be a backup singer for another idol, from another production company." It's here that her tone becomes slightly sharp. "She's...quite popular, actually. She's on the return leg of her global concert tour, and her last stop is Mitakihara. It's a really big concert..."Oh. Huh. That's...is that not a good thing? "Well, it's great! I mean, it's a really huge event!" Iori seems to be hurried, here. "J-just that, well, um, the production company's a rival of ours, and we're seeing this as...well, some sort of insult. Or challenge. Something like that. I mean, this isn't how it's really done, you usually get backup singers from your own production company...it's like she's trying to assert dominance over us. Does...does that make sense, Chiaki-san?"It sort of does, yes. You can get it.It's also here that you feel a creeping sense of dread....The idol's name isn't...Kirishima Ruri, by any chance?"...Yes, yes it is, Chiaki-san." You could hear her surprise over the phone. Surprise and...jealousy, it sounds like. "A-ah, is Chiaki-san a fan of hers?"How do you respond?
>>24954855That's taking it to the extreme by which point anyone is going to notice itYou are trying too hard to back your argument up with terrible examples
>>24954855/k/ plz go. This is magical girl time. We could care less about the particulars of how a gun should or shouldn't work.
>>24954748The Tenth is already out for us, and QB already said that he's on thin ice with the other Officios. There's all the reason to not do something that will breed further resentment from the other Officio's to ours.We may not be cleaving perfectly to the noir genre, but we're close enough that we can get serious consequences for failure.
>>24954845There are three other possibilites.One is: "I have a Golden Weapon and its Highlander time bitch."Two is: "Look at me I'm strutting around with a Warmaster. I'm clearly more important than all you other idols."Three is "Oh god I am so fucked if I don't have the absolute best protection."So we have>Making fuck>Planning to murder us>Planning to use us as a status symbol>In actual legitimate danger>>24954855the analogy post was the first one i made in response to youim sorry
When talking to Iori at the meeting TODAY."So the strangest thing happened today. I walk into my boss's office to take on a mission and as I look over them I see I've been requested by name by a certain [Insert name here because I forgot] for an escort mission, kinda like your own except no obvious wanna-be Spetznaz. You wouldn't have anything to do with that would you?"The part about the escort mission I'm not so sure it should be mentioned, but eh.
>>24954874"I have good news and bad news."
>>24954901Way to unsubtle."So Iori, hows the idol business these days?" sip coffee. "I hear that *NAME WE LOOKED UP BEFOREHAND*, Ruri, and *NAME WE LOOKED UP BEFOREHAND* are all doing pretty well for themselves...?"And from there get her to talk to us a little more in-depth about these idols.
>>24954874She's asked us to provide security for the mission.I dont think she got the memo about kharn not being warmaster anymore either
>>24954874>...The idol's name isn't...Kirishima Ruri, by any chance?Well faggots, anyone else got objections to telling her the truth? Suddenly seeing her and making her think we lied would be just stellar, right?
>>24954874"Well, I've heard the name around before...Can you tell me a little bit about her?"
>>24954874"No, nothing like that. It's just work. I'll tell you about it when we meet today."It'll be easier to make sure we're not listened on when we're talking face-to-face, than on an unsecured line.
>>24954874"Nah, just a lucky guess, been hearin' that name a lot lately."And we could either ask for a little something about that girl or say our aidoru it's her to go raise some flags.
>>24954937This sounds good.
>>24954874"No. I'm on security detail for the concert. Apparently. We can talk about it over coffee."
>>24954934Actually, I'd rather tell her the truth in person in a crowd where the ambient noise will make eavesdropping difficult over talking about it over an unsecured and unencrypted phone line.
>>24954874"I saw her singing while I was flipping channels the other day. Kind of looked like a jerk. Do you think she's the kind of girl to pull something on you like that?"
>>24954922Well that's not an issue anymore, now is it?>>24954874"Not quite. It's more professional. We've been asked to act as a bodyguard for a couple days."Might as well tell her, it's not like she won't know when she sees us at the show.
>>24954956>>24954942>Officio anything>Warmaster's office>Unsecured
>>24954956If we're being paranoid, then talking about this is public would be way more dangerous than over our phones, since both us and Iori kind of stand out. And I think that Magical Girls have enhanced hearing anyway.
>>24954874Someone have a bone to pick up. With you or with me. I got a contract to protect her for a week. It smells trouble. When we take our coffee meeting?
>>24954874of course it is Kirishima Ruri, Pinky must be dying from laughter"Not really, not at all actually."optional, if we'd rather talk in person.>"She requested that the warmaster of our officio to escort her for a few days.">"that would be me."
>>24954874"Fuck. My. Life." Tell her about the job. There is no way this is a coincidence.Ruri has a gold weapon calling it now.
Wait a minute.I think Iori still has a bodyguarding contract open with the Ninth, since Mami, Kyouko, and Sayaka were still going around to the Garcia mansion.If two principals are going to be at the same location, shouldn't we make sure that extra backup is available?We were already going to bring along Sayaka as a social aide, but maybe we should get a second team of Eversor and Vindicare on station, and ask Misaka if Tiny Pete will be ready.
Nothing like being back home to bring out the Shadowruns.
>>24955011So we're going to willingly one-up ourselves with a bipedal death engine?I'm cool with that.
Can we all agree that it would be prudent to keep Sayaka near Iori to get her out if shit hits the fan? I'd rather us fight without having to worry about a hostage situation.
>>24955028But we can timestop and shoot everything...
>>24955028thats pretty much rule 1 of any execprotec detailget the principal out, if you can have someone else do that for you while you fight it out, all the better
>>24954874"No, but i've started reading the newspapers."
>>24955028Sayaka's a fighter (well, stabber) not a runner.We could really use Midori on this one...We should call Mami and inform her of possible (probable/certain) complications.
>>24954983Secure lines require two secure endpoints and can still be subject to man-in-the-middle attacks by getting access to a telephone hub.Internal Officio lines are one thing, but securing the connection between our phone and Iori's is less likely to be possible for a number of reasons.>>24955044A timestop which is notoriously unreliable.
>>24955044And then Pinky goes yandere on us and we have to sit and talk about the flesh of fallen angels to calm her down. Alternatively we only cycle out golden weapons and have a chat with our guests about the flesh of fallen angels.
>>24955064>man-in-the-middleNot a problem if you have halfway decent encryption....We should get Iori some encryption.
>>24955064I get the feeling that all lines between the Warmaster's Office and any and all idols would be clean.Because Kharn.
>>24955056>call MamiWe should call and ask her to inform QB about how this protection detail now involves two clients, and how we want to request additional Meguca support. We should also request that he dig into Ruri's background to see if she's got any involvement with another Officio, particularly the Tenth.
>>24954950This is fine.
>>24955064>>24955080Well, I wouldn't mind.I want a FOFA ending so...Yes, I know I'm alone in this.
>>24955092I dont think kharn would actually CARE about being eavesdropped on
>>24955056I trust her ability to cut through a path to the exit if the need arises. The point is that she watches Iori while we watch Ruri because if anything happens to both of those, it's shitstorm for us. Everyone else can become collateral damage.
>>24955102>>24955101I'm pretty sure Malal took care of it.
>>24955112We need a Malal of our own.
>>24955119Midori you mean?
>>24955126Midori doesn't have the combat prowess or expertise. I assume in our case Mami's quietly handling it at Coobie's request.
>>24955136Then we shall train her in the art of blowing off heads with power of technology. And at the same time hardwiring gunfight survival instincts into her.
>>24955126>>24955136i have high hopes for Midori, maybe not in direct combat but she shouldn't even have to get in to deep if she receives proper training.
>>24955171You mean that with proper training she won't even need to enter combat in the first place.
>>24955090>if you have halfway decent encryption.Do you mean ZRTP or some other protocol?ZRTP and most other encryption methods only protect against man-in-the-middle so long as the third-party wasn't there during initial session creation. If the outbound lines of the cell towers within the vicinity of the QB Heavy Industries Tower are already compromised, or at the towers servicing the Garcia estate, then it's quite possible for such an attack to succeed.Of course, this all assumes that Iori's cellphone has the special GSM card that has encryption built-in.
>>24954874>>24955157>Bitchslapping Kharn>Hugging the shit out of witches>Not combat prowess or expertise.
>>24954874Tell her something is funny about all this...but she shouldn't worry her pretty little head about it right now and focus on getting well, especially since we're going to be there for the concert at this point and it would be nice to hear her sing.
>>24955230That doesn't mean she's a skilled fighter, just that she's the ballsiest fucker to ever live.
>>24955230I think I only need to say 'get fucked' to reinforce my point. And by expertise I mostly mean technical expertise.
>>24954950 >>24954956 >>24954942You tell her that no, it's nothing like that. It's just work, nothing more."A-ah. I see." Even though she's obviously trying to disguise it, you can hear the note of relief in her voice. "Is...is it security detail, again, just like how it was with me, Chiaki-san? Or something else entirely?"...You're not too sure just how much you can share with the idol. You glance over at Kumatora, who's now taken a seat on the floor, the raven-haired Eversor cheerfully putting together the box, taping up the bottom carefully and fastidiously. Almost like a child putting together a school project on her own. Anyway, er. You tell Iori that you'd like to talk about this more over coffee. Today, if she's free. Your schedule got kind of messed up a meeting ago, and you're not sure if you'll be available during the next few days. You apologize a moment later for the short notice."Hmm? Oh, no, that's fine, Chiaki-san! Having coffee with you today would be just fine! Um, how about later in the afternoon? Around...three o' clock, something like that? It's only ten in the morning right now, and I'm afraid I'll be indisposed until then..."Three o' clock's fine. Does she have a coffee shop she likes to go to in particular?You don't really do the coffee shop thing. It's not your scene. Bars are more your playing field, but you'd rather not take her to one."Ah, hmm, yes! There's a quaint one not far from our building! I'll send you directions before our meeting!"Alright, that'll do. You thank her for indulging you."Hee. Chiaki-san, you've really changed. ...Sakura-san told me that you're sporting a new look, now. I can't wait to see what it is!"...It's really nothing much. You just...ended up hairier than you previously were.You should really get a haircut, you know? This long hair thing is not working out.[1/2]
>>24955092Except we're using our own smartphone, we should see about that. We should contact Mami on the laptop later and see if we can requisition secure comms.
>>24955270"Well, I'm still looking forward to it! I-in any case, I'll see you later, Chiaki-san, the producer's calling me! Goodbye, and take care!"You bid her goodbye, and the connection clicks off. You place the smartphone on the desk, right on the pair of laminated panties, before reaching up and pinching the bridge of your nose under your glasses.That turned out as well as you'd hoped."Ah, sempai, should I start taking them down now?" Kumatora springs up to a standing position, still full of fire and brimstone, both hands curled into fists. You nearly back away at her enthusiasm, if not for the fact that you're currently sitting in a throne made of head bones. Take down who? What? Who's the unlucky fucker who's going to get shipped back to their parents in seven seperate zip-up bags, taken apart by an unassuming-looking kid with twintails and the burning wrath of something unholy in her eyes?"T-the panties, I mean!"Ah. Well. She should have specified.How do you respond?
>>24955230Metaphoric balls of steel != Combat skillI'd rather she knew how to handle guns and melee weapons and never have to use then than have to shoot someone and miss completely because she jerked the trigger or something.
>>24955276One sec.Take photos. Catalogue the evidence.
>>24955276Take down all the ones not belonging to present or previous Warmasters of other Officios.Their panties should make a good piece of conversation when with them.
>>24955276"Yes, but photograph each one with its label visible as you put it in. There are some useful names listed there."
>>24955276"Yes, yes. Start taking them down."We should call up Mami now, to let QB know about this crossing of two contracts when he gets out of his meeting with the Twentieth, and to ask to see a roster of Meguca we can nab for the second team.Maybe ask for advice on how to let Iori down gently.Then we need to call Misaka about Tiny Pete, and how long till he's ready.
>>24955303But what if promotions.
>>24955276yeah sure let's take em downlet's make a photographic catalog and send the material good to Siberia.might be fun to do that to all the stuff we're removing from the office.
>>24955303No, take them all down. Bringing them up will only exasperate the situation and make negotiations more difficult.Besides, we're trying to get away from Kharn's reputation, and keeping the panties would only reinforce it.
>>24955325It's just good bookeeping.
>>24955305ThisWhile we don't want to keep them the leverage they possibly represent is too good to pass upEspecially if we keep the pictures digitally and alphabetized so if we need them we can find them quickly on our phone
>>24955276Cataloging them is a good idea, if she can handle that and make sure they get to the R&D facility for us that would leave us free to see about getting our communications secured via a new smartphone or something. It will also leave us free to do our own investigation of the office to see if Kumatora missed anything, perhaps only something we would recognize, maybe a little "care package" from Kharn.
>>24955276While she is at it we should see about packing this throne off as wellIt just isn't us, if it were made of empty whiskey and painkiller bottles maybe but as it is Kharn can have her uncomfortable chair backAnd requisition a semi comfortable leather chair for our office, it should look the part and be comfortable enough to make it look like we own the place when we sit down
>>24955397Maybe better to just put it in storage.
>>24955397Good call.Let's put in a call to... Inventory? Mami? Who handles that sort of thing in a big company?
>>24955397and we certainly have a much, much more comfortable chair.I'm for shipping it off or putting it in storage, we haven't even asked Kharn if she wants the stuff back.you keep what you kill.
>>24955362Adress them to Souji. Or better yet, remove the tags and send them to Misaka as a gift.
>>24955455>send them to Misaka as a gift.No. That's just cruel and weird.
>>24955276"Take them down, take them all down!"While she is doing that, we should look for other stuff. If we wanted to get rid of the throne. Now is the time, but first we will need to get its replacement!There must be a company that supplies the comfy chairs to the hotel.
>>24955276"Just a second. I need to include a letter before we ship these out."Add >>24954080. Addressed to Souji.
>>24955455>to Misakahow about no?
>>24955455Send them to Misaka?That idea is bad and you should feel bad.
>>24955468No, we'd just doze off in a chair that coomfy.We need a proper executive chair.
>>24955450>>24955468We don't want a too comfortable chair in our officeMaybe a few in the warmasters suite in case we have to work late>>24955455Yeah how about no
>>24955455>send them to Misaka as a gift.Only if its a challenge for her to find out who they originally belonged to.
>>24955533>>24955486>>24955479>>24955471>>24955459NO YOU FOOLS, Decu will now think that sending them to Misaka is the most popular choice!
>>24955550He can read. He's not that stupid.
>>24955550Refer to >>24955516
>>24955550You 'avin a giggle mate?
I wonder if we should pry Ahriman's skull out of the chair to set it on our desk as a hat stand?But I suppose we didn't actually take the skull so it would be in bad form to just go pulling it out of Kharn's chair
>>24955645Once again, you are the coolest.
>>24955643I don't think we should get into the whole "skull" aesthetic in the first place.It's just a bit too archaic for a business.
>>24955645Oh a scale of Yes to No.Yes.
>>24955662we're keeping the servo skull though, right?
>>24955679We still need Yuma to fix it, so yes.
>>24955679Well yeah, but just for it's plot-device value.
>>24955662I agree.We should make a gun throne.
>>24955643I'd say that would be one of Kharn's most prized trophies.Taking that is going to lead to angry Kharn.
>>24955694I doubt guns would be any more comfortable then skulls
>>24955699Eh, she's had about a year and a half to ask for the skull throne and panties to be sent to her.I'm guessing she doesn't miss them all that much and is happy to keep those as memories and nothing more.
>>24955694I assume we model it after the Iron Throne?>>24955720which is why we include proper upholstery
I would say we should have a golden throne but until we collect all the weapons that wouldn't quite work
>>24955785Now I want one of the weapons to be a sweet-ass golden chair.
>>24955299 >>24955305 >>24955308 >>24955325You tell Kumatora to start taking the panties down, yes. Probably while wearing gloves. If she doesn't have any gloves, then she should wash her hands directly afterwards, or before she handles any food....Oh, and if it's not too much, could she take pictures of every one, making sure that the nametags are in view and legible? It's...for book keeping reasons. Yes. Just to keep things organized."Right away, sempai!" Kumatora snaps off a blistering salute, pulling out her smartphone and getting right down to work - seemingly not thinking that anything's off with your order. You're pretty sure that it's not everyday an Eversor gets asked to catalog an entire Warmaster's career of stolen underwear, and pack it all away in a parcel box - but she looks to be completely eager to do this for you....Must be the hat, again. Well, at least she's not making eyes at you, or something.You activate the laptop again, and once more you're connected to Mami's own laptop. Your conversation is brief, this time - you telling her what you've learned from Iori, and how it could create unforseen complications, what with the overlapping contracts and all. Is there something that can be done about this? Should you look into having a team cover Iori while you attend to Ruri?"I see. I suppose that is a bit of an issue, Chiaki-san, but it's nothing we can't fix." Mami's hands are moving under the screen, most probably typing something. "I'll look into Iori's contract with us and see if it still applies during the date of the concert. If it does, I'll arrange for a mixed team of Eversors and Vindicares to shadow her during the entire thing. If it's expired then, I'll just arrange for it to be an impromptu refresher op for some of our more experienced security detail girls. Would that be alright?"[1/2]
>>24955727I mean she'll take offense of pinching the skull off the throne, which was what the previous anon suggested.
>>24955811. . .Well. That's...really more than you can ask for. That'd be perfect. Is Mami sure she didn't want to be Warmaster instead? You've barely warmed the thin seat cushion of Kharn's skull throne. She could easily take your place. The authority and the glamor! A desk chair that's both stiff and knubbly - the worst of both worlds!Mami giggles at this. "Thank you for your offer, Chiaki-san, but I'm afraid you just wear the hat better than I ever could. Besides, I know you'll do just fine after you settle in." She winks at you again. "Oh, is there anything else you wanted?"Yes, actually. If possible, you'd like Kharn's skull throne be put into storage. It's...not you, and you'd like something a bit more comfortable. And normal-looking. And has good back support."Hm? Oh, well, that's a shame. I thought it was regal in its own way, Chiaki-san. Sure it's a bit macabre, but it's fitting for that kind of position. Are you really sure?"Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please....On second thought...
>>24955800A transforming golden folding chair.
>>24955820[X] Yes yes yes.Its stylish and badass. Its also really fucking uncomfortable.
>>24955820>Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please.A skull throne is cool, but its not terribly professional. And more than a bit tacky.
>>24955820[x]Yes. Please.Seriously this thing is barely a chair. It's cool. For Kharn. But Kharn we ain't.
>>24955820why cant we put our own chair on top of the skull throne? make it a throne throne
>>24955820>Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please.no Mami, we're quite adamant about it.>don't pout, don't pout, don't pout
>>24955828We Beowulf now?
>>24955820>Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please.Mami can keep it if she likes it so much.
>>24955820>Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please.It is, I think, the single most uncomfortable chair I have ever had the displeasure of sitting in.And unlike Kharn, i'm not terribly fond of so much head all at once.
>>24955820>Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please. Preferably to Kharn as well.Also, ask her if shes free for a coffee break. Chiaki needs that advice on how to gently let Iori down. Stat.
>>24955820Yes pleaseIt is Kharn's chair, not oursMaybe have it packed away to Siberia with her panties
>>24955820>[x]Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please."I'm not Kharn, I don't plan on making trophies of my enemies corpses." You know there is one thing we should consider doing. Lets get our own file and read up on our own history. Might jog some memories.
>>24955820[x]Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please."It's just not...it doesn't fit me. And are you free for a few minutes? I need some advice."We really need advice on how to let Iori down gently.
>>24955820>Get this thing out of my office. I will request it when needed.
>>24955872>>24955872Not yet we don't.If Iori's full-blown Yandere when we meet her, *then* we can run screaming for help. Before is a bit premature.
>>24955820"I've only been sitting in it for five minutes and I already want to get it out of here via the window. ...You can have it if you really like it, though."
>>24955820[x] Yes. Get this thing out of my office. Please.>>24955868>making lewd jokes at MamiNo.
>>24955727I bet you Kharn is already making a whole new wall of conquests, should we be worried about that? Those poor people at the R&D facility, what happens when Kharn runs out of new victi...friends! Because the way I hear it, you get to the freaky stuff the second time. Not that I like the freaky stuff... a lot.
>>24955936No, Kharn is a dedicated housewife now, and soon-to-be mother.
>>24955936>new wall of conquestsShe's a married girl now. Her 'Wall of conquests" is probably just a spreadsheet of when, where and how hard she banged Souji.
>>24955884Agreed, plus tell her that your love life is already complicated without idols. As in yandere complicated.>Captcha>eyes fomymemiYes.YES!
>>24955903Yes, we do.A yandere might actually be easier to deal with in this case.This is we want do drop her without her becoming one or in the worst case, becoming meguca.I get this crawling feeling on my back that the night we called Iori, an Incubator was nearby, waiting to take advantage of her emotionally troubled state.
>>24955955>>24955951>>24955936>wall of Souji's briefs, one per night>he has to keep buying new packs of underwear every week>all the soldiers laugh as the collection spreads from her office to his room to the hallways to the base proper>walpurgishorts
>>24955820I think we should keep the throne, just move it away from the desk for now so we can use our own luxurious chair from our apartment, though that might not be the best idea either, if we get that thing, we might not get any work done either, too busy making up sleep. The Throne is still good to keep around for intimidation, and a reminder of what our task ultimately is as warmaster, a task that should never be taken lightly, and never be put away somewhere because it's inconvenient.
>>24955955x = Datey = Richter Scale Reading
>>24956009We just need a proper executive office chair. that's all.
>>24955936Souji is a greater man than I, sacrificing his body and soul to Kharn every night for hours on end, getting himself ravished, over and over, victimized by merciless pounding, helpless to defend himself from overzealous cuddles.
>>24956046z = amount of blood drawn.>we going full 3d for this
>>24956055WRONGThis is proper chair
>>24956076Make that fluid drawnIn gallons
>>24955989>I get this crawling feeling on my back that the night we called Iori.Imagine what it would be like if we didn't call Iori and still took the idol mission. Thinking about it. It has been established that Iori can see QB. I guess her incubator seeing abilities extend to the other incubators. So yea, looks like Iori can become magical Iori if we don't play our cards right.We should make sure that promise extends to "not even if my life is in danger"
So guys, if Green isnt staying at home, I assume she'll be staying with us, right?Early morning cuddles are the best kind, after all.
We should turn our office into this.
>>24956116I say she should at least get a couple of days off first.She hasn't seen her family for awhile, after all.
>>24956141Wouldlivein/10The gears at the top always got me.
>>24956113It's almost like we're tsundere for her.
>>24955833 >>24955834 >>24955837 >>24955852Yes. You're pretty sure, you tell the blonde on the screen of your laptop. You want this thing gone from your office. It's...nice, it's awesome, it can be considered stylish. But it is also very uncomfortable. ...You can't even lean on the backrest without wincing. It's Kharn's, not yours. Just a normal one will do.Mami smiles at this, warm and soft. "As you say, Warmaster. I'll have Housekeeping come over shortly and pack it away into storage. I'll pick out your new chair myself, I think I have an idea of what kind you'd like."You blink at this, then turn away slightly. She doesn't really need to go to so much trouble..."Oh, I insist, Chiaki-san. Don't worry, it's nothing much. Plus, you ARE my Warmaster now, aren't you? It's my job, too, to make sure you can perform your duties to your optimum capacity." More typing. "I'll have your new chair bought and installed in your office this afternoon. You've got that meeting with Iori-chan later, right? It'll be there when you get back."Oh. Well. That's convenient....Wait, how'd she know that?"She told me about it, Chiaki-san." Mami replies smoothly, stopping in her typing. "She does know my number, though. She's quite excited, to tell you the truth. She's asked me what she should wear for coffee with you today. I told her to wear something cute, yet tasteful. Nothing too out-and-out idol-ish, just something she'd normally wear outside."...Ah. Well. Um. Yes. You're meeting with Iori later. Just for coffee."Is it only going to be just coffee, Chiaki-san?"How do you respond?
>>24956178"...Help me Mami-san, you're my only hope."Ask for help on how to let her down gently.
>>24956178"...No. I'd also like to talk to her about Kirishima Ruri."Completely miss the point of the question.
>>24956178She's a friend. Not a bff kind but still.Nothing more, nothing less.Be proffesional
>>24956141Yes. Let's Homu up the office. It will feel "right".
>>24956193"...Help me Mami-san, you're my only hope. I like her, but...not like that. Really not like that. Her obsession with me creeps me out to be blunt. How do I let her down gently, but firmly, without hurting her feelings?"
>>24956209This guy.I like that style.
>>24956178"it's only going to be coffee if I can help it. I'm going there to talk, not seduce her. I'm not Kharn."
so, i just joined this quest and its waaaay to late to go trawling through the archives to read the whole thing, but why are we letting lori down?
>>24956178"Wh-wh-YES, JUST COFFEE!"Oh, why did Mami have to go and make it all awkward, wait, are we wearing the hat right now? TAKE OFF THE HAT!
>>24956178"Listen, she's nice and all, but if we go any further I have a feeling really bad thing will happen to her."And this >>24956193
>>24956193>inb4 we somehow end up wearing That Fucking Hat to coffee on Mami's insistence
>>24956178Coffee an info, nothing more.Am I the only one who is starting to view Mami with..suspicion? She's even more Mami-like than before. Add to that her supposed socializing with unknown characters and..not sure what to think.
>>24956178This >>24956193We also need to discuss the conflicting Idol gigs with her, and our suspicions that the clash is not coincidental.I mean, how likely is it that a famous international idol heard about the massacre at a rival studio's function?
>>24956230if we do not wear the hat at all times, we shall never master the hatthus we shall wear the hat
>>24956226She's into us and we're kind of into her but we're no good for a high-class dame like her, and also everyone around us dies and we have a crazy god that personally wants to kill/fuck/killfuck us.Y'know. Shoujo stuff.
>>24956231It's that fucking hat
>>24956230I vote we leave the hat in the office when we go for coffee.No chance allowed for that hat to go on to our head.
>>24956178"I want it to only be coffee, and for letting her down, Mami. I don't want to get her involved in our line of work, I don't want to string her along, because I don't think that what I do would be good for her. Sayaka's already talked to me about it, but she wasn't too helpful."I'm okay with being friends. But nothing more than that."
>>24956245Also, she's kind of a clingy bitch
>>24956245whats wrong with that?
>>24956178"Its work related now. To be honest I will have to tell her about what work I do and why she should... move on."
>>24956249but then how can we observe its effects amongst a crowd FOR SCIENCE!?
>>24956178"I don't want to lead her on, the feelings she has for me, i cannot return and i would like to stay friends, but I'm rather good at destroying friendships.""there is also the matter of Kirishima Ruri.">>24956249we could take it along in our inventory, no one will make an issue out of it if we keep it with us, right?
>>24956247The Hat never helped Kharn with her. Maybe it's because she already liked us from the beginning or something. But fuck, my paranoia meter is on.
>>24956218Agreed. Plus we got Pinky gunning for us. How hard do you think Pinky can fuck our idol?Also, in coffee shop, we need to stop time and introduce Iori to Pinky as a way to put Iori down. And Warmaster Pinky, of course.
>>24956237That last part activated my paranoia for some reason. Now I'm betting that by the end of the whole thing we're going to have to go Flesh of Fallen Angels on a golden weapon user.Preferably with the machine-cannon fists.
>>24956226She's kind of obsessed with us, and we're not interested in her brand of crazy.Plus she's a normal and we're an undead murderer-for-hire.Plus, we've got a cute little green-haired secretary who's deeply in love with us, is willing to (and has) died for us (She got better), and is also an undead monster like us, which makes the whole thing more kosher.Also, Iori can be kind of a bitch.
>>24956280WE MUST WEAR THE HATseriously, are you bitches going to let the hat decide you're actions for you? THAT WHAT IT WANTSWE MUST CONQUER THE HAT
>>24956282The Hat never helped because Mami is no slut, no toy to be conquered. She's too high-class for that. Kharn only conquered.Wheras Chiaki is familiar, friendly and not at all like Kharn.
>>24956294No, fuck wearing the hat. It's unnecessary.Unless we're out on business, we should be as incognito as possible, given our new position.
>>24956294Fine.But after Iori meeting.There is a time and place for everything
>>24956245Midori, Mami, and Kyouko get a pass because they're also Meguca's, and have the life expectancy of such.>>24956218Midori's the same way, and even has an internationally distributed manga made about Chiaki and her, which is soon to become an anime. >>24956284>introduce Iori to Pinky>paint big huge target on Iori, because she's someone who Chiaki cares about but isn't protected with a prior relationship to MadokamiYeah, no, let's not do that.
>>24956291so you're average relationship issues then
>>24956294We'll dominate in our relationship with the Hat.
>>24956245And it's because of this reason that we are so tsundere for her.
>>24956294WE are kinda sorta hardened to it's effects, everyone else on the other hand...
>>24956280We wear the hat>>24956284I think we need a picture of warmaster pinky now
>>24956332>everyone else on the other hand...this is why we must wear it, to learn its subtle secrets and mysteries, to master its abilities, to control the hat for the greater good
>>24956280What if it's like the Golden Weapons? Instead of magically finding it's way into our hand, it finds it's way onto our head.
>>24956344>We wear the hatWe Don't.
>>24956263To be fair, Midorin is a bit clingy too, but she's better at not freaking the fuck out like Iori did.Also, vote for missing the point of Mami's question. She'll help out anyway. Probably.
>>24956354>>We wear the hat>We Don't.We Do.you dont want to become the hats bitch do you?
>>24956317Midori thought it was just a pipe dream, and the whole manga thing's spiralled wildly out of control since then. And she also knocked us out without hesitation so she could get the job done.And, y'know.She died for our sins.Iori...She's fawning over us like a fucking puppy. I mean shit, the instant we hang up she's calling all her friends for advice. Its...immature, honestly.
>>24956178"Yes, just coffee."
>>24956317>Midori's the same way, and even has an internationally distributed manga made about Chiaki and her, which is soon to become an anime.Perhaps, but Midori literally stormed the gates of hell and bitchslapped the devil to get us back.That kinda earns her serious points no matter what kind of porn she makes.
>>24956294Nope nope nope nope.The last thing we need is for even more inflamed feelings when we meet with Iori
>>24956363Midori's clingy, but I can't see her doing what Iori just did with Mami.
>>24956284>How hard do you think Pinky can fuck our idol?Now there's something I wouldn't mind reading...
>>24956141>Pictures of Walpurgisnacht everywhereHmm. That shit`s depressing.
>>24956354We wear the hat because we are the warmasterWe take it off once we sit down and talk to her
>>24956364>you dont want to become the hats bitch do you?That's a stupid fucking reason. Stop being obsessed with the fucking hat like that.Okay, it makes us supernaturally attractive and horny.WHO GIVES A FUCK. WE ARE NOT KHARN. WE DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THAT STUFF.We'll wear it when necessary and not give a flying fuck otherwise.
>>24956364What if wearing it to the date...coffee meeting causes something to happen, something horrible, something romantic, something 2lewd. Then we have totally ruined the whole purpose of going out for coffee with lori in the first place, or made it go oh so right.
>>24956393We don't need to wear it out of the office or not on the job. Being nondescript in public is kinda useful in our new position.Plus walking into the middle of the city wearing a massive pheromone bomb is kinda a dumb idea.
>>24956387That's one way of getting rid of people and megucas we can't off ourselves for some reason. Introduce them to Pinky and sit back.
>>24956397>or made it go oh so right.No. It can only go wrong.
>>24956363On top of her (pre-Iori) admiration of us I think she's also got (slight) Stockholm after we blew her kneecaps off. Plus the fact that we're her kill-switch and all that.
I'd like to point out? Aside from the thirty fucking calls on the day we came back, Iori's been clearly trying REALLY REALLY HARD not to be crazy and clingy.
>>24956409This.We don't want everyone in the street fantasizing about holding us down and packraping us, especially if they actually try to do it.That would be an embarrassing way to end our first day.
>>24956409>>24956397>>24956396>>24956393>>24956381>>24956364>>24956354>>24956344>>24956332>>24956309>>24956294Hey now, can't we all get along?We have some time before the meeting, can we contact Kharn? Ask her WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THIS HAT! It's making us nuts, and making almost everyone we bump into crazy as well.
We already "let her down" once before, there's not a whole lot of need to do so a second time. Doing it again would just be kind of insulting and create negative feelings. The real move is just to be cordial with her and make it obvious through subtley and demeanor that she's not going to win us over. Letting her down gently without actually SAYING we're letting her down and drawing attention to the fact would be the best course, because it allows her to save face. And for a rich idol with a fragile heart, that's vital.
>>24956430and all of their lives.
I wonder if there's something that could mindwipe her.
>>24956426Didn't we get back like, yesterday or something?And didn't she just call Mami the instant we hung up on her for advice? Is that not crazy/clingy?
>>24956434Hahaha, have you been drinking too much vodka, Murderface? 'tis just a hat, comrade.
>>24956434>On 4chan>Everyone getting alongHAH!As nice as that would be sometimes, no.Although yeah we might want to call Kharn for a minute.
>>24956409You are looking at it the wrong wayThe warmasters are meant to be seen, meant to be noticed.Every warmaster we have heard of has been the most visible type of person possible as well as supremely strong, if we start skulking around like we always have? Well it sort of kills the purpose of us having the position anywayWhile wearing a pheromone bomb isn't the best idea it is necessary if we actually want to start acting as a warmaster
>Wear hat to meetIori: "ohgodChiakiyoulooksosexypleasecanwegobacktothewaywewere?I'llevenlearncooking,cleaningandbewithyoufortherestofyourlifepleasecanwegotoalovehotel?Chiaki: Actually Iori, I came here to talk about breaking it off.Iori: D:
>>24956413I'm sensing a doujinshi series...
>>24956426See, we did get through to Iori the first time we let her down, it's just going to be a bit of a transition period. Trying to go on another "I'm no good for you. Now get lost" tirade is just going to lose us a friend.
>>24956470that little emote can't express her reaction, not at all.
>>24956475>Pinky rapes the female cast while Chiaki and possibly Midori watchI dig it.
>>24956451She's nervous. That's pretty normal. We kind of let her down in a shitty, albeit necessary, way. She doesn't know how to deal with us. Mami does.
>>24956481She's more of an overly clingy client than a friend.
>>24956491Maybe not with anyone watching, more like "if you want to be with my love, you'll have to beat me!"
>>24956491>peanut gallery commentary>Kharn shows up at the end and laments not being invited
Hmm, well, I think I'll pause it here, I have work in six hours! The next thread will be tomorrow, same time! Thank you for your participation, and feedback is always great! I hope you liked the new pace, too, I'm trying to speed up!Questions answered after another writeup!

>>24956511Longhair chikuwa when
>>24956434I like this idea, call Kharn, ask about the hat. Tell her we're sending her a gift of old memories that I'm sure she'd love to share with Souji.
>>24956491Even Better;>Pinky rapes the female cast while Chiaki and Midori make out.Fuck yeah, I'll take some of that.
>>24956511Wicked. Thanks Decu. We love ya.
>>24956467>The warmasters are meant to be seen, meant to be noticed.The only one we know has followed that paradigm in public is Kharn. And we have no reason to be like that dumb, glory-hound bitch.We are a professional. We do not need to show off or flaunt or status needlessly. >ell it sort of kills the purpose of us having the position anywayThe purpose of the position is to Get shit done. Not parade ourselves around like a poster girl.
The first time the Prima met the Ninth Warmaster – and for that matter, the first time I did – it was like oil and fire. …Well, oil, more oil, and a spark provided by our new Warmaster. …It was sort of cute. One of the only times I’d seen her slip back into her drawl. She only did that when she was fighting with her sister. Usually.Took a little bit for me to piece it together, between the unintelligible accent the Ninth Warmaster brought to the argument and the squeaking of the Prima’s voice when she got upset, but according to Malal, this was over some kind of forbidden love between the Warmasters. …Guess I’d be upset if somebody fucked my sister, too.It was probably stupid not to expect this to escalate, between the Prima’s reputation as Queen of the Psychopaths in our Officio and the Ninth Warmaster’s penchant for blood and gore. For almost a full second, I was even surprised when, as if they’d planned it beforehand, the Prima’s Luck and the Ninth’s wicked, jagged-looking sword clashed in the blink of an eye. …When the Ninth’s sword started to roar and move, though…that got me.What the fuck is wrong with Russia?(1/5)
>>24956511Deculture, you are the best thing ever. Srsly.
>>24956536Sparks showered the Prima as she yelled…well, pretty much that. My hand slipped to my knife – I didn’t transform right away, didn’t usually feel like I had to – but Malal grabbed my wrist. Said to let ‘em get it out of their systems. …Seen a lot of shit, but I know better than to tell a Culexus to go fuck herself, and opening up the Ninth while she was fighting would have been a pretty terrible idea. Not worth it, no matter how mad the Prima seemed to be.Probably wouldn’t have gotten that far anyway, though – their expressions were surreal. Inhuman. …The Rabbits are monsters. We threw away our humanity a long time ago. But the Ninth Warmaster was…something else. Something worse. She didn’t look…angry at all. She looked thrilled, as her freaky fucking chainsaw sword dug into the Prima’s katana. It was blinding just to watch, and a tiny shard of Luck dug into the wall between Malal and me as it was chipped away.And the Prima…well. The Prima I was used to. As Luck met Vodkasaw over and over, the horrible screech of tearing metal filled the air. They seemed to clash for hours, each quick strike from the Prima countered with effortless ease, and each heavy blow from the Warmaster blocked with foolhardy determination, even as Luck wore thinner and shards of metal dug into the both of them.Then, they pulled apart, as though they’d found some kind of truce, the Warmaster’s manic grin fading into an almost…hurt expression. Disappointed.“Is not seriously all you have! I heard you are the smart one, but I thought you would have more strength, at least, than this.” (2/5)
>>24956511>the next thread will be tomorrow, same time!Thanks D, I'll look forward to it. I've got an exam the day after tomorrow and this'll be the perfect thing to bring me down after half a day revising.
>>24956551“Bitch, Ah’m a heroine.” The Prima’s anger seemed like it was gone, replaced with a smile we’d all learned to fear. She ran her hand up her blade, like she’d done every time she thought she might have dulled it. …As the blood from her fresh cut dribbled over the metal, it just…filled in the missing parts, as though it was nothing. Freshly-drawn. “And a heroine’s luck never runs out. ‘Bout time Ah stopped fuckin’ around, though.” That’s when she stopped fuckin’ around.Guess that was obvious.With a flick of her wrist she summoned Luck’s sister, Pluck, and the two of them met again. I glanced over at where Malal was sitting to see if she thought we should do something yet, but she’d disappeared. Figured it wasn’t anything to worry about, then, but once Pluck came out, the Prima usually got kinda…carried away.A mad giggle echoed around the room as she flew at the Warmaster, the screech of chain-on-metal replaced with a quick, repeating clang as the Russian struggled to keep up with the barrage of slashes, though there was still an uncomfortable rain of metal as their weapons collided. Even though it seemed like it was starting to tilt in her favor, every glancing blow the Prima managed seemed to be deflected by the Warmaster’s freakish black armor, and the threat of her sawblade meant not even the few blows that sunk in were very deep. …To be honest, I was already having trouble following what was happening. When they broke apart again, I couldn’t tell why, at first. Then, the Warmaster spoke.“Where are your big words now, silly little frilly doll? We are not past third blood and already you are tired! Too much American hamburgers in diet, maybe you need workout?”(3/5)
>>24956517>with Chiaki and Midori holding each other in a corner shivering in horror
>>24956556“You keep talkin’ shit, Russia. Ain’t none’a mah blood on that sword. Thought it was for takin’ skulls, not takin’ hits like a little bitch.”She was breathing hard. I’d never seen the Prima…well, I’d never seen her have to fight so hard before. …I was pretty good at opening people up, but the Ninth was on a totally different level.“Then you are not going to run and cry? Good!” With a cackle, the Warmaster snapped into motion. Bore down hard on the Prima, forced all god-knows-how-many pounds of crazy Russian chainsaw onto her. She stood her ground, for a minute, as her swords were ground into a silvery powder over her. The wild bloodlust seemed to return to the Warmaster’s eyes as they stared each other down. Something about the way The Prima was looking at her, I guess.There was a sort of snapping sound as one of the blades finally gave – Pluck, it was in her left hand. Had to be. At that moment she slipped out from under the chainsword and whirled to get a swing in at the Warmaster’s side, only to have it caught by a black knife-hand.What happened next...shaped my perception of both of them forever. The chainsword roared as it came down in an arc, nearly drowning out the Prima’s cry of ‘Fuck you!’ as she jammed her broken, jagged sword up into the Warmaster’s abdomen. Right under her ribs. At the same instant, the horrid sound of chain cutting into bone filled the room as the Warmaster’s weapon dug into the side of the Prima’s chest, blood and little fleshy bits spraying along with little bits of black cloth as the two froze.The chainsaw slowed and stopped, the Warmaster’s grip loosening as they stumbled apart, Pluck still buried in her.Couldn’t have been far from her heart. At the time, I figured she’d killed her. …Well, killed her body. Temporarily. Real bitch to do permanently.(4/5)
>>24956511Take care of yourself Decu, don't burn out!
>>24956564Then, the Warmaster reached up with her gauntlet or whatever the hell it was and yanked Pluck out herself, holding the wound just under her breasts and laughing weakly. She seemed to chastise herself, then forced out a much stronger laugh, and dismissed her weapon. The Prima did the same, forcing out a little giggle as she tried to stem the blood coming out of the gaping wedge taken out of her torso.“Yer…you’re pretty hot, Russia. …Guess I forgive you. You wanna…like…do something?”“You are like frilly, starving dog, Annie May Springfield.” …Nobody used the Prima’s name like that except for the Warmaster and me. I was almost confused for a second. “Luck and Pluck, eh? These are not great names. But they are good names.”“Well, I was thinking about Killer Queen and Bohemian Rhapsody, but like…”Don’t remember most of what they talked about. Wasn’t really paying attention. They…neither of them should have been standing. …This is what it meant to be at a Warmaster’s level. …You had to be batshit fucking crazy. …I was lost in thought until the Ninth looked over at me.“…You know, rabbit is a delicacy, back in the country. Maybe I can have little, tiny taste?” It was probably the most disturbing pickup line I’d ever heard. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.“Well~ We do die if we get too lonely. …If you really want rabbit, you’ll have to take us both.”… ……I don’t really want to talk about the rest.… ……Never did get those panties back.(5/5)

>>24956633Actually we haven't heard a thing about them probably because they aren't story relevant yetIf they actually are as you think then you would be right, but until it is actually established you are pulling it out of your ass because we have more evidence to show that warmasters are as much for showing off their power as they are doing the job>>24956651Notice we haven't actually seen that many people affected by it. Those most affected were other meguca, the normal people actually seemed to get a lot less of whatever the hat does when we wore it outside the office on our way in
>>24956756>the normal people actually seemed to get a lot less of whatever the hat doesWell, they were made to be more subservient, and obedient, and not sexually enticed like Meguca's. I think that it affected both Meguca's and mundanes equally, but in different manners.
>>24956750Has Midori spoken with Chiaki about the real story about how she contracted with Jyubey? (Contract or be dead/crippled VS actual windowsill contract so she would be special)
>>24956780That is why I said it seems to be lessThat is why not wearing it because "OMG EVERYONE WILL WANT TO RAPE US!!!" is stupid
>>24956750Will we be seeing more of Kumatora from now on?
>>24956712>The Kyubey answer.You bastard.
>>24956824I hope we doMaybe she could become a semi permanent lackey?
>>24956794I don't think so! Not yet!>>24956824Yes, and other girls from the Officio, too!
>>24956780The meguca reaction could be chalked up to Miracle Midori/Murder Mayumi popularity + blue rose gifting (plus nurses being horrible gossips). Sayaka reaction isn't too far-fetched, given her eager reaction to Butler-Kyouko. Though all the other stuff is very odd.
>>24956578This was an especially awesome read.
>>24956838>>24956839Awesome. Now we have a Genki girl to add to our collection of associates.
>>24956794Midori's story isn't exactly inconsistent. She told Chiaki she got hit by a car and then contracted. In her internal monologue, she said Jyubey visited her and contracted her. Assumption: Jyubey visited her in the hospital after the hit and run left her crippled and she jumped at the opportunity to do something about her situation.
>>24956511What color panties on Midori?
>>24956856Thank you! I'm glad people have been enjoying them, I don't really relish the thought of being thought of as someone shitting up Deculture's threads, haha~
>>24956857>tfw too late to romance Malal>tfw no qt tomboy-madoka gf becuz ded
>>24956984Hey yeah, we don't have a tomboy in our group. Still a few slots to fill then.
>>24956999Heh, "slots to fill", good one.
>>24957015No Kharn, not like that.
>>24956925True, but wasn't there a part about Midori not wanting to merely be the owner of a noodle shop? To me, that implies that she was not in any mortal danger of dying or being crippled, she just did not want to be a mundane person. Although the way you mentioned could also have happened. Explaining stuff to your heroine/crush while under threat of death might result in some discrepancies.
>>24956954Nah, it's always a good read. Here silence can be taken as a good thing, lack of quality is always pointed out via immediate shitflinging. So yeah, keep up the good work.
>>24957049I'd guess that not wanting an average life played a part in her decision, but that can't be the entire story. It doesn't seem enough to fuel a contract.
>>24957049>doesn't want to own a noodle shop>wants to be a manga authorGood enough?
>>24957075She did mention something about helping her family out money wise from working for the incubatorSo maybe that's all it was, the increase in money + the not having a mundane life was all she needed
Maybe Midori's wish was to meet beautiful, dangerous women. Which is why she's spent most of her magical girl life being shit on by Jyubey's Officio, then Chiaki, Kharn, and Pinky.
>>24957075It might be. Assuming that all the stuff about having a family heavily in debt is true, plus all the ostracizing in school and other unnamed siblings being unmentionables is true, PLUS fantasizing about being a Super Awesome and Elegant Meguca with the chance of meeting up with her idol/heroine/crush/obsession... to a jaded and wary person, such a deal would seem too good to be true. But to a lonely and vulnerable girl, it might be a wish come true.
>>24957134Ah yes I'd forgotten about her family's debt. That might explain it then. Maybe they couldn't afford to hire a replacement if Midori stopped working for free and followed her dreams. The contract would be a way out.
>>24956925Not just her story.Even QB's story on his relationship with his brother incubators switches back and forth from our talks with him to his internal thoughts through his POV and then through his actions.I'm still not too sure which is right.
>>24957359That's probably more of what he tells subordinates VS what his opinion on the situation is VS how it actually is. Even if QB is a superintelligent alien, he's not immune to having biased opinions in his own favor.
>>24957150I'm starting to think her wish explains why there is an anime coming out.
